Americans Are Risking Their Professional Licenses to Take a Stand
"There's a story of a doctor in Maine who actually has been referred to to get psychological help, 70 year old doctor, she's been practicing for over 40 years. I read this in the epic times this week, she has been suspended until she gets psychological help because she's been prescribing Ivermectin and other therapies that the establishment physicians don't approve of. Oh yeah, I saw that article and then I know some realtors, because I'm a mediator. I'm also a writer. I know some realtors who got fined $15,000. And some even lost their licenses because the NAR updated the ethics codes and they added some verbiage in it about hate crimes. Which is completely up for grabs. It doesn't even define what it is, but these particular people that I know, they were at the rally, not at the capitol. They were at the rally on January 6th. And they posted their photos on Facebook. And we're seeing a lot of that. People, companies who saw their employees at the January 6th rally just simply showing up to support their president.

"Clarity <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Silence> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> over time, even <Speech_Female> after makeup <SpeakerChange> was removed. <Speech_Female> So yes, <Speech_Female> if you're using <Silence> foundation <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> to get <Speech_Female> skin care results, <Speech_Female> you're not <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> doing it right. <Speech_Female> We are not relying <Speech_Female> on this foundation <Silence> <SpeakerChange> to brighten <Speech_Female> my skin. <Speech_Female> No. And I <Speech_Female> think like at the heart of <Speech_Female> it, brands want to <Speech_Female> be like, we're giving <Speech_Female> you a product <Speech_Female> that's not going to make your <Speech_Female> skin worse, <Speech_Female> right? <Speech_Female> That's the idea <Speech_Female> behind it. So I get <Speech_Female> it. And they <Speech_Female> even say that <Speech_Female> they made this <Speech_Female> for all <Speech_Female> skin types, including <Speech_Female> sensitive skin. <Speech_Female> So if you <Speech_Female> like the products like <Speech_Female> ilia and <Speech_Female> cosa skin <Speech_Female> tint and <Speech_Female> maybe even I mean, <Speech_Female> I love say <Speech_Female> slip tent. <Speech_Female> So I don't think this is like <Speech_Female> a comparable thing. <Speech_Female> But <Speech_Female> I can't use <Speech_Female> the coast tinted <Speech_Female> products. <Speech_Female> And I can't <Speech_Female> use I love revealer <Speech_Female> concealer, <Speech_Female> but they're <Speech_Female> serum foundation, <Speech_Female> same with Ilya. <Speech_Female> Can't use it. Like my <Speech_Female> skin breaks out <Speech_Female> at the thought of <Speech_Female> putting it on my face. <Speech_Female> So I feel <Speech_Female> like Sarah, when you're <Speech_Female> saying that this felt a little, <Speech_Female> it says medium <Speech_Female> coverage, but it seemed lighter. <Speech_Female> Yeah. <Speech_Female> It probably is <Speech_Female> because it's more of like a <Speech_Female> serum Y texture. <Speech_Female> Yeah. <Speech_Female> But it looks like <Speech_Female> it's not because it's <Speech_Female> in their <SpeakerChange> traditional <Speech_Female> kind of foundation <Speech_Female> packaging. <Speech_Female> Yeah, and <Speech_Female> like I can't use <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> or Ilya <Speech_Female> either, which is <Speech_Female> interesting because we have <Speech_Female> such different skin <Speech_Female> types. But <Speech_Female> yeah, <SpeakerChange> <Silence> it wasn't for me <Speech_Female> either. It <Speech_Female> wasn't a home run for me. <Speech_Female> I saw everybody <Speech_Female> on <Speech_Female> TikTok, <Speech_Female> talking about it and <Speech_Female> showing before and <Speech_Female> after. And it looks <Speech_Female> beautiful. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> When you first put it on, <Speech_Female> but <Speech_Female> it got really great <Speech_Female> reviews on Sephora. <Speech_Female> But that's what <Speech_Female> I mean like, obviously <Speech_Female> with makeup, it's <Speech_Female> interesting because <Speech_Female> you can give a review <Speech_Female> right after applying <Speech_Female> makeup to be like, okay, <Speech_Female> yeah, I delivered on <Speech_Female> texture or <Speech_Female> whatever or <Speech_Female> shade match or <Speech_Female> whatever. But when <Speech_Female> you get a product <Speech_Female> that's a cosmetic <Speech_Female> that also claims <Speech_Female> to be skin care, <Speech_Female> you kind of <Speech_Female> have to give a fuller <Speech_Female> review. You have to be <Speech_Female> like, okay, 8 days <Speech_Female> later, this is what was <Speech_Female> going on. You know? <Speech_Female> Right. <Speech_Female> Because for me, yeah, <Speech_Female> putting it on. <Speech_Female> I was like, oh, <Speech_Female> girl looks good. And then <Speech_Female> all of a sudden I'm thinking, <Speech_Female> where are all <Speech_Female> these pimples coming from? <Speech_Female> And I was like <Speech_Female> trying to assume it <Speech_Female> was everything else <Speech_Female> except for this foundation. <Speech_Female> I was like, was it this new <Speech_Female> ingredient? I started using <Speech_Female> when I was cooking. <Speech_Female> Is <Speech_Female> it this other product <Speech_Female> that I tried? Maybe <Speech_Female> it's because <Speech_Female> my hormones are <Speech_Female> out of whack, blah, blah, <Speech_Female> blah, nope. <Speech_Female> And I hate to say <Speech_Female> that because I really, <Speech_Female> really wanted to <Speech_Female> love it. So <Speech_Female> for me personally it wasn't <Speech_Female> a hit, but you know what? <Speech_Female> For y'all, <Speech_Female> if this <Speech_Female> could be a product that <Speech_Female> changes your <Speech_Female> skin. It <Speech_Female> just depends. <Speech_Female> And I couldn't even I would <Speech_Female> not be able to pinpoint for <Speech_Female> you, like what <Speech_Female> caused this reaction <Speech_Female> to my face. <Speech_Female> But $49, <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> definitely a skin vestment. <Speech_Female> Like, how <Speech_Female> does it already <SpeakerChange> have <Speech_Female> 40,000 <Speech_Female> likes? <Speech_Female> I know. <SpeakerChange> See, <Speech_Female> that's but then if <Speech_Music_Female> you

"So Kirby and I both tried this, it's trending on the tiktoks. Kirby tells your review. Okay, so first and foremost, so foundation products coming out in the next couple of months. Yes. I think brands may be thought by 2022, we wouldn't be wearing masks or something. But alas, here we are. So you'll see a lot more of these. I mean, we have Charlotte's that just launched, and now this, and then there's a huge brand launching one in a couple of weeks. So there's a lot going on. I do want to highlight a few things before I get into my official review. So there are three ingredients that they highlight in this particular formula. Biomimetic oat, which visibly improves clarity by reducing the appearance of redness. The term biomimetic, you're going to see a lot more in skin care. I feel like this is about to be similar to inflaming. It's going to start popping up. Biomimetic means that it mimics of nature. The brain that put it on the map for me actually was K 18. Because they figured out how to create the ingredients, the biomimetic ingredient to help actually fix your hair from the inside out. Then there's Japanese lily turf, which it says it supports a strong skin barrier by helping maintain moisture and cacao peptides and milk thistle, which minimizes the negative effect of blue light and environmental stressors. I want to also add that I feel like I think that florals are going to have a really big year in terms of ingredients in products this year. I feel like everyone is really focusing on I mean obviously they're trying to promote using natural ingredients. And I feel like florals are having a huge moment. Oh, I like that. Oh, I like that. Okay, okay. We'll have to keep that on our radar. We'll do like a little roundup of some florals and the future. There are some ingredient callouts. They also, you know, it's like free a parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, one thing you're definitely gonna start seeing more. So people are gonna start saying that they're free of formaldehydes and formaldehyde releasing agents. Even though there would literally never be formaldehyde or formaldehyde releasing agent in this particular product ever, ever..

"TBD Johnny, little John Stevens. I remember like someone asked Chrissy, why is your last name not legend? She's like, because John's last name is not fucking legend. His last name was not mother fucking legend. It's John Stevens. I love it. I love it. Friends, I don't know what else to say. I love skins. She just needs a place to talk about it. It's not even, it's not even beauty related, but like, no, but it is. Anything skims related is Los Angeles related. Thank you. Thank you. So sometimes going back to my big grandiose ideas about experiences. I have been talking nonstop. I've actually talking to the founder of vacation Inc about this. That I really think skims needs to take over the fashion runway whole. Now that Victoria's Secret's gone, I know that. Savage Fenty has their thing. But in terms of like a big experience, I want skims to do a fashion show. And I want their first fashion show to kick off in March or April and it's going to be called skims break. Like MTV spring break, but it skims break. And it is fully like early millennium nostalgia with the winding runway. We're like nsync is wearing like plaid shirts with white feeders underneath in different colors, singing like I want you back. Your hands come on put your hands together. Like.

"Plus, email subscribers receive 15% off their first order. We got some celeb beauty news, shocking. When do we not have celeb beauty news? One thing is very on the nose beauty, the other one is beauty adjacent, but I still feel like it's important to mention it is. So our Capricorn brother, John Legend, a man who has no shortage of jobs. This John Legend is gunning for Ryan Seacrest like most jobs title. Hardest working man has what do you call it?

Did you know, did you know this was happening? No, and no one pitched me. Yeah, I didn't hear about this at all. This is from Friday, okay? So it says this is from business of fashion. John Legend to launch skin care brand for people of color. The singer songwriter is the latest celebrity to join forces with Los Angeles based celebrity business developer a frame brands on a line aimed at targeting specific skin care challenges, people of color face. A frame brands created, was Naomi Osaka's skin care line. Yep. And it's created by investor and former fashion executive Ari bloom. So I went to a frames website and one thing that I really am impressed by with a frame is that it appears that 99% of the people that work at a frame are people of color. They say that the core of their work is about people in creating opportunities of seeing ourselves in the brands that we build. Which I think is really interesting..

"So they're bringing back Tim Allen to do a Disney+ series on the Santa Claus. Which by the way, that movie, those movies make me cry. I can't explain it, but I literally cry over Santa Claus. And in the first movie, the new husband, I'm blanking on his name, the one thing he wanted was this Oscar Mayer weenie whistle, and he didn't get it from Santa and that's why he stopped leaving in Santa Claus. And then he gets it at the end and he believes in the Christmas spirit. It's all there. This year, you're passing out weenie whistles at the grove. You got Tim. And hydrogel sheet masks. You guys need to restock obviously. People want more. You're handing out stockings with weenie whistles and your hydrogel sheet masks. You have Tim Allen at the grove for the tree lighting. I want a shirt or like a sandwich bag, tote bag that says you can't spell delightful without Delhi. Yes, doing that. We're joining the Oscar Mayer marketing team. You're also going to have a commercial where Tim Allen, as Scott Calvin is going into some kid's house and he gives the kid that gives him the Bologna sandwich like all of the toys because he was so thrilled not to have to eat milk and cookies. And said he got a Bologna sandwich. And maybe did a little hydrogel face mask while he was waiting. Did you eat baloney growing up? No, I didn't. I didn't eat Bologna. I did not, I know. Oh, my God. I loved Bologna. Which is like a very American thing in my Filipino household growing up, but we definitely had Bologna. But like Filipinos like canned meat, good, so that's not weird. Not surprising. Yeah, totally. But see, look, I haven't had Oscar Mayer Bologna in over two decades, and I'm thinking about it. I'm thinking about them. Yeah, now it's implanted in your head and you're going to go get Bologna next time. And Zoe and I are having some Bologna sandwiches. If anything, they did this for me. My toxic trait is I read Bologna Bologna. I truly do it every time. I do it every time. I just read it the way it looks. So every single time I say Bologna, and then I'm like, nope, it's baloney.

"And she's like, Sarah, do you my friend's gonna send you a sheet mask? And then she actually testing out the sheet mask for refinery and she filmed a really hilarious TikTok, which when it goes live, I'll share. I also recorded myself reviewing the sheet mask and we'll post it on our social later this week. It very much gives Dwight schrute impersonating Hannibal lecter. Yes. Yes. It's very much of that. It's a sheet mask, okay? They teamed up with this brand called soul mamas. I think it's like a K beauty sheep mask brand that makes private label sheet masks because I was on the website. They make like sheet masks for the Ritz Carlton. They make private label sheet masks. So Oscar Mayer went to them and was like, can you make the sheep mask? I didn't keep it on my face for very long. They didn't really even prominently feature the ingredients on the package. I was like, ingredients is not like a priority of this, obviously. But I saw that it said like quote unquote colleges, collagens, plural, were in it, and then witch hazel. So I was like, okay, I'm gonna keep this on for like a few minutes. No more than ten. I mean, you know, made my skin feel nice. I didn't break out. It was a hydrated, but it's very much for Instagram TikTok of it all. And not meant to really do anything to your skin. I just think it's hilarious that Oscar Mayer was going into their 2022 fiscal planning and they're like, okay, Bologna sales are down. How do we get Bologna in the good graces of mankind? And then someone's like, you know, millennial beauty connoisseur. She's like, well, I'm obsessed with Michaela on TikTok and you know things on TikTok that go viral or like face masks and they're like brilliant. Let's do it because they don't win anything by this. Yeah, Lexie confirmed that that was the conversation that happened. It was just like, what's the most ridiculous thing that we can do that we can like, you know, get our names and in the news in the headlines and this was it and Jenna and hoda were trying on the Oscar Mayer baloney mask on today's show, so congratulations. You sold out and you're on The Today Show. You're really doing great. Honestly, Oscar Mayer, if you really want to just toot our horns, you should bring out the Oscar Mayer, weenie mobile. At some point, just have it drive around LA. People would freaking die. So one of my passions in life that I think is kind of a missed calling for me is producing experiences for people because I'm constantly always thinking about that. One of the best experiences I ever had with a movie opening when the second Jurassic World came out, let's please not talk about my obsession with Christopher Pratt, who may or may not be some kind of, okay, we don't know.

"Has anything changed in the past, however many months, weeks, whatever. Absolutely. Because one of our sources did say that they were actually surprised because they had no idea they were even featured in the story when they couldn't even recall contributing to this particular story and then they realized when they asked the writer and the writer confirmed, oh, this was from a previous interview. I personally do think it's a little misleading, but at the end of the day, I think that everyone is an agreement. Don't overdo it with your skin care products. And wear sunscreen. And freaking where the sunscreen. And then make sure that you remove it properly. In some fun and ridiculous what incarnation beauty is. Is this 2016? This feels like very 2016 to me.

"Beauty news time we have our follow-up. We said we would follow up and we will. So we talked last week about that slate story, how your skin doesn't need skin care. The head scratcher of the entire story was did these particular sources that the writer reached out to know that this was going to be the story. Because I'm familiar with all but one of these sources. And they are all dermatologists. We reached out to all four of them, and we heard back from three of them. The particular dermatologist that I'm not super familiar with and who I reached out to, but I didn't hear back from her name is doctor ice cream wala 100% sure I'm pronouncing that incorrectly, but her name looks literally like ice cream and then wala. So unfortunately we didn't get any response from her. So I just wanted to put that out there. But we reached out to doctor hirsch, doctor el cell youngman and doctor Josh zeichner. And we're going to share what they relate to us. Okay, so we're now. This is her direct quote y'all. Since you've asked about my inclusion in this recent slate piece, I'd like to provide some context. While my quotes in this well written article are accurate, they came from an interview conducted a year ago on a different topic for a leading publication that ultimately didn't publish the story. And we're therefore out of context when applied to this slate article. I'm the first to say that the skin is a remarkably fine tuned organ system, but I'm also from believer that skin care is an excellent complement to many of those natural mechanisms, or put as a rinella ism, even though the skin tans and produces melanin as a method to try to solve preserve, I'd never encourage anyone to rely on that. We should always compliment with SPF. Great. Kind of assumed that much. Yeah. That's why we asked probably, like, that's what led us to ask in the first place. It didn't feel like maybe the sources knew going into it.

But what I really like and appreciate about it is that it's super easy to use and I feel like every time I'm using a binax says or I buy another test, it's like the instructions. You're like, I don't really know if I'm doing this right, but as you're doing it on the app, it shows you like a video like exactly how to do it and it tells you when to do it. It's like, okay, do this and do not proceed until you finish this step. And then obviously like the first time it takes a couple minutes to figure it out. The second time when we did it on me and then Zoe was super quick, but it takes about probably 15 to 20 minutes and it'll show you the percentage of the tests like where it's at in the process. So Matt was the first one to take it and then it turned out positive. And I was like, oh, okay. It was like crazy. He was just like, I think I should take it, and then it tested positive. And then I took it. And then you create a profile for every member in your family, then I created one. I took it and then said negative and then Zoe took one and I hopefully we got enough gunk out of her nose that it worked. Yeah, I was gonna say, how did she handle having it in her nose? She didn't mind it the first nostril in the second nachos. She was like, this out of my freaking nose. But it just like gave us peace of mind, you know, where I was like, okay, so there's always a chance that it's gonna be a false negative, but I think the fact that when we took the Biden access, and it could have been like.

"It's really not going to work in some markets across the country. Other markets, it's going to stay as it's always traditionally been. We are not, we are advocates of virus agency. So don't misunderstand what we're saying. But what we've always been and always we tell you guys this even though you don't want to hear it, if you want to do relevant in this real estate industry, you've got to learn how to be a listing agent. There's not much of a future working with buyers. You're not looking at a temporary apparition in the marketplace. This is going to be going on for a long damn time. And the problem is for the buyer's agent's perspective, the problem is, is after it's been normalized that the buyer agent commission is no longer an entitlement to the transaction or and it's something that the buyer's agents are going to have to negotiate for with their buyers in markets, it will get like that. That's not going to go back. No, it's not. And in fact, if you guys, some people, we always get this when we present a point like this. Oh, that's unethical. That's illegal to negotiate the buyer agents commission. It's always been this way. Well, guess what? Check in with the builders because as soon as the market is super hot, what happens to builders co op? They say zero or they drive it down to virtually nothing. Not all builders, but this is a very common practice is when they know that they can sell it without you. You know, you become less relevant. Are you feeling a little fear and panic because all you know how to do is buy violates? Well, you should be, and that's the reason you need to learn how to become a listing agent. That's the bottom line. Can't give it to you any more BS free than that. Yeah, well, you know what their script used to be working with buyers? Well, it doesn't cost you anything because the seller pays my fee, right? Right. Okay, well attached to this same vote that an AR just did about having to disclose the co op by commissions. NAR has also said you are no longer allowed to claim that working with you is free unless you're actually not going to take a commission. Isn't that interesting? Yep, so guess what? Buyer's agents a lot of you guys are attracted to working on that side of the business because you've been you perceived it's been required less skill. It's more of a social into the business. Well, that's going to change. So listen, guys, we need to wrap we're going to get to the rest of our points. I mean, we're point how many predictions we have one, two, three. Tomorrow's worth.

We are starting with our week. Five results here starting at the top of the table. We've got an interesting rundown for you in terms of standings and by interesting i mean this should come as absolutely zero surprise to anyone who's been falling for any amount of time here this year in first place cloud nine at ten and two tied for second we have. Tsm and one hundred thieves at eight and four fourth place as a three way. Tie to round out your playoff teams evil geniuses dignatories and team liquid all remain in control of their destiny immortals to entire games behind in seventh place. Fly quest down there at four and eight and eighth and tied for ninth place. We've got seal g and golden guardians. Who that's for the in terms of standings. Let's talk cloud nine top of the table. In how did they do this week. Nine had a banger of a weekend. I'm really really satisfied with how this team performed this weekend. Everyone is looking fantastic right now. Honestly perks has some absolutely popoff. Plays on yasuo in the blank. This weekend He was looking awesome blabber. Just absolutely runs train on one hundred thieves on olaf. He's still looking amazing. I honestly don't understand how this guy still getting. Olaf when champion pool is more like an ocean. I guess you know. It's kind of hard to ban out. Everyone right yeah and then you know they also had just a pretty good win vs golden guardians. This was a really really good week for c. Nine they displayed a a show of dominance that i think is important for them to show versus lower tier teams and upper tier teams like hundred thieves the takeaway from this weekend see nine looking fantastic. I'm happy with this team. And my favorite thing about this team this season so far is they have displayed the ability to play like everything they can play. All sorts of different team calms they can play all sorts of different styles and be super successful on it so lots to love from. Cnn radio man. I wonder what it's like to be a fan of a team. That's like the best in the region. Can you feel so good what it feels like to be yankees fan fan now recently. Hey man at least. I always tell myself no matter how bad things get. At least i'm not. Cgi got even fan. Just seal g actually entire org. at least you're as an entity the idea mostly. Yeah yeah oh yeah. I was just gonna say overall c nine great weekend moving on. Yeah and i think a key point here is they did go up against one. Hundred thieves created separation against a team. That's currently tied for second. They did in just such an incredible manner. It was like every single lane. One like blabber just played out of his mind perks actually styled on monday on the blank it was just such an awesome game. In addition to that there was actually a little not really an interview but ls during. I think it was a co starring. He was doing as well. Fudge seanang fudge came on just chatted back and forth with him a little bit and revealed that perks. Basically said yeah. It's just demonte. I could totally take leblanc into him and fucking popped off. I think he got a level. Three solo kill level three or level. Four to play a little vision. Game with perks had award kinda thwarted the whole thing and it cost him onto his life. Basically and the game like there's no way or less. Yeah that snowballed everything out of control so his brutal really really. Well played for nine showing that even if they were close in the standings. This matchup is just so nine favored. There's also been a lot of chatter specifically from people who are in the know that one hundred thieves has a major mental block against the nine. They absolutely hate playing against him. So little fun. Little tidbits for y'all there. All right seni- jumping down to. Let's talk about the two teams tied aid right now for second place. Tsm and hundred thieves. We'll start with the less fun. One which is of course hundred thieves. Who has kinda struggled a little bit throughout the course of this entire split. Not looking nearly as strong as i think we all would of hoped. Jack's talked me about their weekend. All right so other than the cloud nine game that we just touched on mcleod nine blew them out of the water. Hundred thieves mostly had a good weekend. They beat seattle g. They had a close call but they then recovered from their close call. Took control of the game back from seattle jian won the game Close calls is more of like they. Lucked out into a wake-up hopefully they don't make same kind of mistakes of leading finn. Just do ridiculous nar things when his team's losing miserably they literally flipped a to k gold lead into four k gold back. Yeah and flip within like eight minutes. Yeah it was stupid. That's nuts g. You can hear this hill shawn's voice because the game had it but from the perspective of hundred thieves like other than the one mistake that was such a huge swing the game. Well they played really well against dignatories capping the shit out of fate god and the rest of the team playing fine or or well depending on the player like demonte didn't have a great day in general. Don't they didn't have a great weekend in general. Let's be honest but then yeah the cloud nine game like to cut blown out in twenty four minutes. It was brutal you mentioned it was monte attempts to do a bush play like bait something to get away and that was the only thing like someday played without respect for fudge it all and got punished repeatedly for it like it was rough. It was really rough.

This is one that i could visualize. I think about the difference between a four environment. Gene i did we talk about this for a long time. When will come to. Fruition will be real.

Because we're finding new in different ways to use power a and how much work has been directly inspired by what's been going on over the last year and in all these solutions are they quick fixes of the problems that we've seen exposed now or solutions that can be applied to society of the long term. I believe tree pandemic everyone was talking about digital transformation and we talked to that everybody will go through digital transformation. Everybody's planning board. What we've seen over.

Tula, the combo USB mic and audio recorder
"Systems. Likely the systems you use today. Learn more at avelar dot com slash talking. So what if. There was a usb mike that also let record at the same time. I think it sounds like a pretty good idea. So does david brown. He's got a new. My call the tula mike It's a two for one. It does double duty and he is talking to us from barcelona spain. David how you doing all right. Tell me why you invented this microphone. Well initially it was. Because of the explosion of content creators people making podcasts and having youtube channels and that type of thing. I wanted to create something that enabled those people to to get good audio easily Even if they are audio professionals and i thought it would be cool if it were a device that could record when you're away from your studio or away from your you know a bedroom studio or whatever. It is out in out in the field that can function as a mobile recorder as well. Okay right now. I could buy a lot of bikes plug directly into the iphone and have pretty good pretty good sound with them Intake the take that with me anywhere or have a usb mic on my desk. So to me after. I've just told you that you would say what well i would say. That the tula the a few things number one. The tula is is a kind of all in one solution. Instead of having one. Mike that plugs into your iphone in another fund that you have on your desk at home it covers all those bases and we like to think that it covers it better than than all of those put together and it looks really nice already. You should tell everybody about two to at a place in russia to our from moscow. What inspired you to To to to name it after this cook you know area of russia. And and and i believe you allow your engineers are in russia. Tell us about the russia connection well. The russia connections is kind of a hot topic. These days. I have a band called brazzaville and were oddly popular in russia. So i've toured extensively in russia for many years and Back in the ninety s in la. I bought a pair of octaves from Guitar center back when they were the first condenser mics. That were sort of affordable and i used him for years and one of the times. When i was on tour. I thank god. I wonder we're up toddlers located. So i looked it up. Sure enough. it's in. This town called tula which i had never heard of before in about a week later i was playing a gig in In cross nar this guy came up to me after the show. And he's like oh man. I'm a big fan. I wonder if you'd ever planned my hometown. Oh we're tula. And i said could you get me a you know a tour of the octave factory. He's like well. I'll try and he had to get special. Fsb permission and all of this military facility long story short. We got the idea to start at first. We were going to partner with taba to make like a kind of high end version of what they do. But in the end that was way too complicated and we ended up just founding our own microphone company which became soyuz. So let's back up a little bit. You're used to live in los angeles. Yes you live. You live in barcelona now okay. And you make microphones in russia to. How does that all get. How put that all together for me. I have a lot of airline miles. Well i grew up in la like right actually in la unlike most people who tell you they grew up in la grew up. Like basically in downtown wilshire and fairfax even more. like i. Like the koreatown. You know hoover in third and around there but i lived there for for most of my life and then about seventeen years ago. I just had this idea to move to barcelona just mostly because it just seemed like a good idea and It was a great idea as it turns out. I've never regretted it okay. So you're living barcelona and you fly on air flow aeroflot's to moscow Three times a week or three times a month or sadly not this year but last year. How often were you going all. I would go at least once a month. I would say and I know moscow really. Well i love russia immensely. It's beautiful country. With incredible people gets a really bad rap. I mean they're and bad people like anywhere but good luck with the tula. Mike which will be out in january one ninety nine.
A donut day before the storm? Is six days going to be enough?
"I'm health reported. Teigen tyler an assistant journalist author norman swan. It's friday the twentieth of november water week. What a week in date especially for people in south australia. And if you listening with thinking of you in lockdown at the moment but norman as well. Yesterday there were no new cases in south australia there in super hard lockdown if that finding more cases over the next couple of days can i just go straight back to normal as soon as lockdowns iva well. That's possible i suspect that what The authorities will do is give themselves another four or five day window just to make sure there aren't any because the six days is predicated. They think this is a short incubation period. Virus and we talked about that in yesterday's krona cast. It's unlikely that's true. It's probably just virus coronavirus like any other and it's going to be five days and therefore might wanna wait another few days just to check it out. They'll probably release people and a bit more and allow people to go out for more exercise and so on so it's going to be much more like a stage. Three i would imagine would be fairly safe to do. Going back to zero is probably politically a bit. Risky. because you don't want to reimpose it if if more cases reappear but you might relax and let people to go out so i suspect you might be on a ten day cycle in south australia. But what do i know. It's fantastic news. There are zero cases with a lot of testing being done and is a lot of testing. It's in in proportion. It's about the same. As victoria was at the peak of their pandemic. And we've been in touch with south australian health trying to see if we can get some more information about this strain that they were talking about that that the public health officer was saying how short incubation period and was mild. But they haven't been able to release that genomic info yet so we actually nar if it's materially different to the other corona virus strains that secular around the world. It's not. You can't really be unless some mutations. has occurred this is virus. That's come in from with somebody from brisbane. It's going to be one of the circulating viruses and britain. I'm not aware that the british are saying that they've got anything peculiar but their viruses are behaving. This was said at the beginning of the new south wales when they got somebody coming in from victorian you got the crossroads motel say that they were noticing very short incubation times. It was a different kind of fires. You didn't hear much more beyond that. Because i think it was just an artifact of the cluster where you just got intense spread during the cluster. Which makes you think that. It's a different virus. But in fact a different style of virus but in fact it's not

The Latest On municipal Elections
"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott
Rob Knight and the Gnarbox
"It's a quick chat this time with my Buddy Mr Rob night over there he has some experience with a little device call of the NAR box. We're GONNA be talking about that and kind of what his overall impressions are with the device, taking it in the field around the world and. Sort of putting it in interesting situations. Rob Night how you doing man? Hey, man I'm GonNa thanks for having me. Yeah. Yeah. Good to have you. Yeah. We got to Chattan. We you and I got to chat about this thing the non locks, which is which is a little device if people that may not have heard of it. It is a hard drive. This is actually a full computer in here it's going to display. It's got ISO got a battery on their for power in. It's got a input for St Cards and CF cards and I think that's a that's simply on there as well and USB see on there. So you can actually plug another hard drive into this. So it's main purpose and you correct me if I'm wrong because you're more of an expert on this and I am its main purposes if when you're on the go to ingest your files where there'd be video from a drone or still camera or whatever into the device. It does a check some on those files to make sure what it copied over is is there. So it double checks shirts there? And then it allows you using their software because the devices WIFI using their software you can go through and start calling and sorting and labeling and key wording and all that stuff directly within your tablet or your phone while you're still in the field that I get it. Right is that is that what it? Yeah that's about it. I mean in short, it's a little computer. And you use your ipad or your phone as the interface for it. Although version two, which the when you're holding up, it does have four buttons on the on the front that go at the LCD. So you can't operate it without attaching it to your phone or your. IPAD, which I really liked as a big improvement over the version. Yeah. Yeah. It's a cool device in the I talked to will, Afrikaner he's the CMO over there. He was taking me through the device and I mentioned that it feels like its military spec like if something that you'd be issued a military and he said it was actually built to military's Beck. So it is. It is a device that you could theoretically find in someone's backpack in uniform. What what are your experiences with it? What do you think without without me leaving the witness? You Tell Me What what rob nights experiences with the Nar box two point Oh sure well. Like you mentioned it is built like a tank and. There's a few things I love about it since my cameras use SD cards I, think that's great The other thing is it's so well weather sealed that I can actually put an st card in it and close it and it's weather sealed while I'm downloading and backing up my data. That's really cool. I've taken it to places like Peru, February back when we could go anywhere and I'm literally living on a riverboat on the Amazon for a week and I didn't want to take my computer down there. So instead, I'm backing up hundreds of images day using this and plugging in an external hard drive to it. So one of the big differences between this and other similar things is just that as I plug in my hard drive. My little portable drive. This will run the drive and download to it. all at the same time. If I want download a copy to the Nar box and to the external drive at the same time, have two copies. I can do that too. It's. It's very flexible as far as that goes And then you know sometimes you I I don't like to do a lot of work in the field usually especially, if I'm in Peru on a photography workshop the last thing I want to do is take time away from my clients and sit in front of my computer for hours. When I could be. In Peru. So I'm not doing a lot of work, but you know sometimes you get your, you're doing a shoot and you just know you got that one shot. You can use the Nar box apps on your phone, connect the phone to the Wi fi on nar box and and I can download images right into light room I can I like you said you can. You can add ratings that kind thing So if I want to, I, can put things right into light room and they're on my computer when I get home. And that's pretty awesome. What That's been my sort of typical use case I was I did some production work off a friend of mine my buddy Eddie tap on a video production that we're doing and we spent a week. On location doing. Like I was telling you a little while ago before we were recording six hundred, twenty gigabyte as d cards, worth of video in the morning and the same in the afternoon when the light was good and so I would get go back to my hotel room between Hook up the Nar box downloading everything to are are working hard drive. So at the end of the day, everything's all downloaded and I know it's there and we can format guards and start back over tomorrow that was a huge benefit and things. So rugged I can put an D. card. Okay. We're shooting here we're moving to the other side of the location I'm GonNa Plug in Nasty Card, Set I one thing I I should talk about to with the APPS. They, basically, there's so much. It's improved over version one with this that. I, I? I just ended this and does this. it's a colliding new product for I it completely. Yes. One of the things that drove me nuts with the first one is that you have to hook it to your phone or your ipad to work anything.
Can Victoria get it done in three more weeks?
"Sino Men People Victoria had been working really hard for weeks and weeks now to try to get the numbers down there and they've gone from seven hundred ish new cases of Covid Day Dan to two hundred in about three weeks. I'm sorry there's another three weeks before those restrictions are due to the stage four restrictions. How likely is that going to be able to go back to a normal way of life at that time? There are a lot of variables I think is highly unlikely that people will be going back to a normal way of life in Victoria for a long time to come, for example, mandatory mass to be out there for a long time to come what's a long time I don't know the answer to that question. But really for quite awhile, and certainly it's going to be a help to have mandatory masks when they do start relieving restrictions I think we're going to be very nervous about lifting restrictions with anything more than zero spreads. So that's what they're expected expecting but I think that's Unlikely, in three weeks and people getting tired in D., H. S.. So you've got some incredibly hard workers who the contact tracing the testing who are running teams and they're getting really tired. It's emotionally difficult for them. They're they're doing incredible work as indeed are victorians under this lockdown you'd have to say so an since which those teams hold together manage to actually go the distance themselves and then are those teams really being held by the system. So you've got h care that still a problem Victoria it's not at all clear the extent to which you've got healthcare worker problems in hospitals. They were very late telling us about the role Melbourne break. There were probably late telling us about the Franks hospital. If to save face or political problems, they're not telling us about hospital outbreaks and those continue and they're being spread to patients. I don't know whether they are not one here's anecdotes, but if they don't get in there and solve those very specific problems of high risk workplaces like food, processing storage, and so on. And each care and hospitals then they could continue to be sources of outbreaks moving forward. So has the department got the capacity to get in there and just as a matter of interest for you the that's not the responsibility of Brett Sutton chief health officer. There are other by teen structure in Victoria, and they have a chief medical officer who's in charge of safety and quality in healthcare and the and the bureaucrats obviously have a major responsibility here. So let's hope that they can get on top of that to control the epidemic. What's Christmas look in Victoria look they could be zero spread certainly by Christmas we. Should be zero spread well before that but it's this ability to actually get in there and deal with that and deal with it transparency transparently and shine a light on where the problems and admit to it because admitting to it is not just taking flak in the press. This is about actually the whole system being organized around with our full who points of the outbreak, and we know that there are focal points already and just telling us what their efforts are in those areas and their strategy because at the moment I suspect some daughter are being hidden from us and we don't know and I don't think they're going to get zero spreading unless they can sort that out. Well, we've got some. Feedback and some clarifications from audience and thank you all so much for talking to us and letting us know what you're thinking about when you're listening. I'm recalling clarification corner that's right and so the first clarification to clarify is that we asked you guys to send in how long it was taking tests to come back where you live and we said that remote parts of Australia it was taking twenty four to forty eight hours and then in Melbourne in Victoria it was taking about five days and people saying that Nar, lots of friends and family getting Melvin test results back in twenty four to forty eight hours. True. So maybe there was a bit of a self selecting bias there as a health. And Science report is we should be on that but thanks for keeping us on ties with that one you guys ended no defense. We did say it was anecdotal, but that's not us being defensive. We should have probably emphasized that and I have another question for clarification, which comes from our episode where she can go back and find which is why vaccines mandatory and we talked about their research, which showed the suggested what the order of symptoms where which started with fever went to cough and so on and quite rightly people have written in and saying that is not to be taken as Gospel absolutely is right. The any of the symptoms that you get in any order it doesn't you don't. Have to fever go and get tested. So Muscle sore throat that sort of thing get tested fevers essential and another thing that we're getting a lot from you guys on is questions about vaccine. So we thought we would do a quick fire Monday on vaccines and just try to cover up as many of your questions as possible. So Norman you ready to answer some vaccine questions off too deep breath ready to go. Now, how is an unvaccinated person a threat to a vaccinated person? So I take it this comes from comments at government level where people are saying well, if you're not immunized, you won't get on a train or you want to go to an office situation and what have you What's the problem with that? If everybody else is vaccinated well. The fact of the matter is that. This issue of Herod Immunity. and. The more people who are immunized the less circulating ours you've got and the less have spreading it. So a big reason why you want ninety five percent of kids in their first year of life to be immunized and a lot of the rest of us to be reunited as well as so there's not much around. So kids who are vulnerable in the first three or four months of life don't catch hooping cough. So in a sense you, we are trying to remove the burden of disease in the community how they distributed, but it's Unclear but I would imagine through general patches through pharmacies and also targeted immunization programs to healthcare workers and heath care centers, and so on. It would be very silver to try and create a whole new process. For this, we've got recognize immunizing the public and that's what we should use. In this case just make sure it was just the right place because you're going to maintain a call chain. So the viruses are active and effective when when you get to the point of delivering is there enough evidence to suggest that it's safe not yet. Which is why those phase three trials. So important, it doesn't take that many cases to actually find out whether it works and human beings. Maybe four hundred people need to be infected with covid nineteen in vaccine experiment so that the two hundred, the placebo two, hundred in the active group to find out whether it works but you gotTa do it maybe thirty thousand people to find out that it's safe just to be sure that rare side effects don't emerge. The answer is no particular question on pregnant women will it be safe? Pregnant women? The answer is unknown at this stage. It's known that the influenza vaccine is safe is very safe in pregnant women, and in fact, pregnant women must be immunized for influence because you do not want to catch influence when you're pregnant. And you don't want to be to catch it two straight after birth. So pregnancies. A really important question to be asked. So pregnancy and children and immuno-compromised those are the groups of people where you are going to have to test it and be sure it's likely. It will be safe from past experience. But some of these vaccines are very new technologies that haven't been properly tested in all groups. In the community we do know that the Oxford style vaccine which is the chimpanzee virus has been tested. In children in with other viruses it's been around for a while that technology and it was safe and children and effective with other viruses. I can't quit you homegrown in my head at the moment but says some experience there but the Mr Vaccine from the United States or Germany those we are yet to be tasted in those groups will get the vaccine I while they say that what who get it are. People who are older people complicated medical problems, healthcare workers, and high risk environments. Those sorts of situations which will be is I, but here's the problem. If you don't immunize the poll population as quickly as possible, the virus is mutating all the time and that if you vaccinate if you immunize than mutations of the virus which are not covered by the vaccine could escape. And multiply if you don't get in there, do it quickly and that's one of the problems of Mexico or wherever is taking up the Russian vaccine some countries trying out in a couple of thousand people. You could actually get mutations of the virus surviving in countries like that and seaways antibody resistance, and we could be creating a nightmare for herself by ourselves by another country. Just little bits of immunization and we get viral resistance. Well, that's a real nice note to end on. Thanks everyone for your vaccine questions and let us know if you lock these quickfire rounds and if so what you'd like us to talk about next time
Columbia Sportswear's Gert Boyle Faced Down Sexism and Ageism
"Boyle. Grew. Columbia sportswear into a downfield powerhouse is the third Nar five-part series on the origin stories of iconic companies. We originally aired this episode about boils legacy after she died last. November, let's listen back. She was one tough mother and proud of it. Gert Boyle, the ninety five year old Chairman of Columbia Sportswear died earlier this month since then accolades poured in for boil, she was a formidable funny icon of the outdoor apparel world notorious for her resilience and her toughness qualities that empowered her to guide Columbia from near bankruptcy in the early seventies to what the New York. Times. Now calls the largest outerwear brand in the United States, a three billion dollar business. Gert Boyle was born gertrude lamb from in Germany in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, four, when she was thirteen, the family fled Nazi Germany moving to Portland Oregon there her father lamb from bought the Rosenfeld hat company worried about antisemitism. He changed the name to the Columbia hat company. Columbia evolved from hats to outdoor year including a fishing vest that Gert than a homemaker raising three kids designed. Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it. But when the buyer a man offered, only fourteen hundred dollars she custom out and slammed the door in his face wrote Doug Schnitt span who profiled her for outside magazine. Gert said for fourteen hundred dollars. I would just as soon run this business into the ground myself that encounter galvanized Gruden Tim with a combination of unconventional strategies including being the first to use the waterproof fabric. GORTEX. They saved Colombia and set it on its growth path while all of their outdoor industry rivals including the north face in Patagonia. Marketed their wares to elite climbers and adventurers girding in Tim, we're happy to sell their products. Products at department stores at lower prices that strategy shocked the young industry and it worked so too did the Marketing Campaign Gert? Boyle is best known for the one that featured her as just what she was. One tough mother that campaign which ran from nineteen, eighty, four to two, thousand, five depicted gert down to earth mob oil. Now, take no nonsense mother who didn't suffer fools gladly, and who would allow nothing less than perfection A. A string of TV ads showed Gert using her son Tim as a product Tester to prove that they're outerwear was both warm and waterproof. In the first. She had tim dressed in Columbia's famous three layer system. Walk through a car wash. Her favorite one was one in which she drove a Zamboni on a hockey rink. Right over her long suffering son dressed in Columbia gear. Of course, he was lying the ice breathing through a straw. Straw apprentice out of the same era for the boundary peak parker quoted the Middle Aged Gert, saying I've got hot flashes to keep me warm. You'll need something that zips mob boils tough. Mother ads are credited with transforming a little known business into a household name inside the company. Her wit was also on display. She summed up her guidance for other leaders. This way early to bed early to rise work like hell and advertise. She might have added and work like hell. Until the day you die, she made it to the office on her ninety fifth birthday in March and was still having business discussions shortly before her death on November third according to outsides Schmidt's Pon. Gert Boyle will be remembered for many things among them, her belief which she shared often with younger women that a woman could do anything and also her conviction that older workers are assets in the workplace. Indeed, in her nineties, she wrote perhaps my presence in the office offers a message that managers liked to put older workers out to pasture. Out. To lunch.

I am ill prepared for the show. How everyone! All right we. Go. That sounds. Spent my Texas a couple of months ago. I think Brad. This is the second time you scared me about taxes. What happened the last time I think last week you talked about taxes and panic and he's. Like wait. Is it a shorter year this year? Too I get a refund I. Don't know God you as you did your taxes before the original deadline right? Yeah, that was the first time I've ever done that. Man I tried to be prepared for once sounds pretty great. Second year in a row only had to file one. Whatever the thing is a w. that's what it is. Oh Nice it's clean. It's clean living. Easier Oh my God being a freelancer sucks. Yeah, man! Yes, he scrape. They. Don't tell you they don't teach you any of that. I had the same experience about going on twenty years. Making all this money review video games. I'm just gonNA spend it all. Yeah, At the end of the year, it's like Oh. Oh Man, it's a good thing. I got that modest. Stipend. bought. To California because I'm going to have to spend it all pay these taxes. Boys exactly what happened. Anyway, that's. Yes. What's new? Come on. I don't know just? For me, it's just been all baby stuff all the time Yemen. She's. Going to be a year old next week. Yeah She likes standing up on a lot of stuff now, which is fucking terrifying or she's going to be mobile before you know it running around. pull up onto stuff and then take one hand off and then turn around and starts stomping while hold nonstop, but it's. Closer every single day. She's revving up. Yeah, she's She's GonNa Start Hurt herself a whole lot. Pretty soon works on down over and over again until she figures it out. yeah, she. She's also growing. What what I think are like thousand teeth at the same time. Oh, no so the eating stuff has been super rough last night. She woke up a couple of times. Screaming just screaming, I'm here trying to play the streets of rage, two on mixer and other feeling. And this baby God am I right now data earlier like come on baby. We've only got like ten days left to use the streaming service really on mixer. Kit Wait until the twenty fourth. Grow your teeth later. While I'm trying to grow this audience. I. Bet You can probably just about got nick sorority yourself at this point, right? I think everyone that is a mixer user is still on there. They just all have. It's like mixer. The front page still has like the Strip of your are featured partners, but all of them have like status messages that say. Come on twitch. Follow me on twitch. Streaming to both and saying like a you should move over to twitch I'm over there to one and not a lot of people. I've seen saying like come on facebook gaming. I'll be that. A lot of that, but admittedly I haven't I haven't dug into deep to mixer to see. who's doing that sort of stuff but NAR, should you? Know Yeah, that's Yeah, I'm not. I have been following that stuff. All that closely, but youtube types on their sounds like. Every everyone I've seen has had a message saying come find me on twitter I. Don't think I've seen a lot of people saying come find me on Youtube of other. The Ninja has certain four night. Streamer seems to have relocated the Youtube. How Yeah Not Weighing, in on Tick Tock his or or the universe or the University of the same thing. I don't know He. The other thing was like you know. He's put videos up on youtube before, so it wasn't necessarily like a a sort of thing the where it was like. Hey, I'm on youtube now. What will happen with all? That signed the oath. Oh No, no, it sounds like. It's still just kinda out there house. Doing whatever business dealing, he is doing I'd waiting for twitch to make them an offer free agent Cedeno right. Yeah, SO I! Don't know maybe Maybe they'll. They'll start a new thing which doesn't seem like a smart. Move if you look at mixer like I feel like if Microsoft. Kinda can't make it happen. With a new service that actually has really strong technology at its base, I feel like starting a new streaming service for games. That has no other real hook to it. doesn't seem part also. Do you think? Do you think that the mixer implosion is kind of like the beginning of the end of those giant exclusivity deals because I mean if? If they signed the biggest streamers on twitch and nothing happened. With their service like those, you're always going to have some sucker who comes in with too much money? who thinks that they can who who looks at twitch and goes we do that.
"One and welcome to mentally yours. Metro Case Mental Health podcast I'm event and today. I'm chatting to Juno Dawson. She's a journalist and also who's recently released a novel called Wonderland. We've tested to have before on the podcast about trans. Women and mental health in general today. We're catching up with her to see how she's doing in lockdown and also to chat about her recent work. Dawson welcome back to mentally as thanks so much for coming on. Thank you for having me back time. Do I know exactly what it was? It was two years ago because I was really lay. Train hilarity and I've never been so stressed and then not only was I. I went to the wrong. Cheat stuff as well. I can't believe it's been two years, but thanks for coming back on. We were already gently checking about this before we started recording. How have you been getting on during lockdown generally? It's strange now because I want to use the phrase noble because I don't think his normal. Ud, just kind of comes and goes in waves. Doesn't it kind of? How bothered you are by things and I. Think in a strange with that. We've sled a relaxed some of the lockdown roles. It's almost harder in a way like when it was very strict roles, we'll do what we couldn't couldn't dare. Except for Dominic Cummings, who did? What we were allowed to do, and we all we all just stay home and we isolated with the people that we lived. Whereas now there's all these thousands of perplexing roles about you can go to the zoo, but you can't see grandma you're. You're allowed to go for Bob Hewitt at your friends, but you cannot can't use the toilet, so it's all. It's all very strange. During knows us to be happening when it's super strange. If you're single like me, because a friend tweeted earlier, basically you can go to the zoo, but you still have sex. If, you're single. Technically like that has been no announcement about anything like that. So that's is just a weird state of events is net, but anyway. The zoo. A question. So to get the most serious stuff. Have you found anything particularly challenge challenging during the pandemic. yeah I think. Initial theory again we've been. We've been inside for months now. going chronologically at the beginning of lockdown. Wife found really difficult was pretending that everything was normal. Think particularly as a writer people looked at. My life has one which could very much carry on us normal like. What are you worried about? You can just keep on writing like this'll be great. You could just get the next novel done. And so I made a little office space in my living room of tried to. was really really pushing myself to work. Like from nine to five and Then at the same time. I was like project managing my partner as well because he'd been furloughed was right will. This is a list of jobs that need doing around the house. About maybe three weeks in I just had a complete breakdown, and it manifested with me attacking of Venetian blind. Wasn't that wasn't behaving in the way I wanted it to, but that's just wasn't remember that night. I just went to bed, and just cried and cried and cried and Max I think wasn't really shall what was going on, but I think. I just needed to let it out because I've been soft clinging mom. And and you know, it wasn't normal and isn't normal this this isn't like anything that anyone who is alive now has experienced I mean potentially if you are old enough to remember World War Two and I guess you. You've lived through this situation before, but everybody Balm Post Nineteen fifty isn't GonNa remember any of situation like this and I think the there was almost I had to go through a process of just accepting that nothing was the same an indeed and I've had seen the people of referred to it as a love, the same emotions as bereavement. Light let's Elaine go part. Of like, you're not going to be seeing your friends, you're not going to be seeing your family. You'RE NOT GONNA be. Doing exactly what you want to do. Doubled up, point is. Public Health Fairs. Are. We GonNA get sick. Are we going to die? I'm having I was very lucky in that nobody who I personally NAR has. died of Covid, but my daddy did get sick from something else, so we were trying to deal with you. Know my dad being in hospital and Oh my God. He's in hospital with his diabetes is GonNa get coronavirus. So it was it was a lot, but the not feels like years ago now because that was like right at the beginning of lockdowns. That really does feel like a different life.
Unicorns of the Sea Reveal Sound Activities
"In real life, Nar walls don't speak English. Like the one bidding farewell to will Ferrell's character in the movie. Elf instead they sound more like this. That's an audio clip recorded by scientists last summer under the icy waters of northwest, Greenland. We want to describe what animals are doing. We I better understand what sounds are telling us. If Guinea Podolsky. A geophysicist at Hokkaido University in Japan, but Alcee and his colleagues study the soundscape of glacial fjords. They're noisy places where icebergs crash into the ocean and air bubbles visit of melting ice. These yards are also home to Charles. The animals are sometimes called unicorns of the seat because of their single long spiral Tusk and they're shy, which makes them hard to study so Polski teamed up with local at hunters who snuck up on narrow walls in kayaks and captured audio. That's the sound of a Narwhal looking for food, using echo-location like a dolphin or a bat. and. That's an all closing in on its prey, which had vacuums up into its toothless mouth, so start sounding like to my ear like a chain source something wick. Since? It's so many little clique SOM- that Kennedy even. Them and this is recognized as a foraging related sound used those by other animals, for example, other dolphins or bats. They do the same trick, because when they approach the target, their prey which is phenomenal, so Arctic Greenland Halibut. The want to update their. Knowledge about the position of the target more frequently because the target is moving, and they need to suck it in and. That's why the interval is getting shorter and we even using some simple simple assumptions. A equation can know how far the animal is from the target. The whistles you heard earlier are thought to be social calls individuals communicating with other nar walls. The researchers reported these observations in the Journal of Geophysical Research. Oceans, bursts, deal sounds which we don't know what they mean. And there are several wicketless, but also says that listening to Nar walls is a first step toward understanding this mysterious wail, and how it will cope climate, change, shipping, and other human activities alter its Arctic home. They're all this things taking place right now. In the region which will affect somehow this animals, but we have no clue even about the state or the previous state of this animal. So if we want to learn what's going to happen, we better start now and I hope this is where sound monitoring can help us to learn more about this still mysterious creatures.
What's a Narwhal's Tusk For?
"Deep beneath the frozen surface of the Arctic Swims Unicorn and reality. It's a whale with the spiral tusks sprouting from. Its head the Narwhal. Biologists have long debated the purpose of male Narwhal tusks. The task like those of elephants are actually elongated. Teeth is Nar. Walls are usually below the race. It's tough to see how they use their tests. It turns out. We don't know pretty much anything about them. Because they're impossible to study really in the Wild Arizona State University evolutionary biology graduate. Student Zachary Graham. He wondered if the males tusks were a sign of status as a potential reproductive partner. Comparing tusk size to the wheels overall body size could provide evidence one of the main trends. That it's been documented over hundred different animals. One hundred different traits is disproportional growth. We call that hyper elementary and all that means is that the sexual trait is growing disproportionately compared to the rest of the body. So it's not like the biggest nor wall is just a scaled up version of a baby. Narwhal what we toughed is disproportionately long and then we also see that. There's intense variation so grandma and his team turned to measurements collected from two hundred and fifty adult males over thirty five years. The majority of them are from the inuit hunt so the inuit have been killing our walls for thousands and thousands of years in any time they do that. The Greenland Institute of Natural Resources Them to collect data turns out the length of us can vary widely even for males the same size ranging from a foot and a half to more than eight feet the finding in the journal biology letters the top tusks thus appear to be like a billboard that shouts look at me on the biggest after all only the strongest best fed individuals can afford to produce such an ostentatious ornaments. Of course Tusk can do more than just say you doing the fact that these nor was always have the scars on them makes us think that it's likely communication structure that also functions as a weapon for grand. There's also a larger issue some evolutionary biologists have recently proposed by apotheosis at groups of animals with elaborate sexual signals are more likely to specie eight and diversify than those without. We know that the world's changing around us more than ever so understanding how and why some species are going to be able to adapt and deal with. This is key. If we're to protect and manage species that we have on earth today.

"But you're still on a budget. This is where I will tell you why that US Martinez and they'd demands Martinez sold the basic fluid and magnetic one other non smartly nuts when I say non smart is that these dreamers getting art really changed resistance by themselves your game a little upper exactly. Now let's say you used the fluid trainer or sometime. And now you want to really start upping the game but still to stay within the budget. Okay so now they do something a smart trainers so smart. Nar is basically any trainer which can adjust the resistance by itself according to the courts according to a lot of other factors is a smarter now. They've won more added. Benefit of the smart trainer is that it shows you our reading politics. Basically how hard you're peddling. It measures the story and you put on the Patriots and that to my mind as the gold standard off. Cycling Performance Right. Cycling performance is because cycling is all about putting the power on the Patriots and these smart trainers something. Each measure that power with a decent accuracy. So once you start training with power that you can take your cycling to the next level if you start training with power. The power meter measures every pedal stroke it measures. How much Being through the pedals for every stroke so today I do hundred words for not. That is hundred words tomato. I can do that same workout. You know same hundred large tomato the day after tomorrow also. I can do hundred watts for one hour. I can you repeat the same workout again and again because the trainer is measuring my power so my workouts now become very accurate a they become measurable and they become repeatable so there is a very famous saying what can be measured can be achieved for me. This simple line is reason enough to buy a smarter. Trainer has it will measure my performance of Luigi de or W.

They're they're murderous as As planned parenthood. Oh Yeah Yeah. Ver- very very unfortunate Now Justin you. You have a lot of good materials for people to be able to understand this material. I have one of them right here. Clouds without water in this volume two is an updated version of volume. One correct What are what are we? Everybody can get it from Justin Peters Dot Org But really what is the content of this? Yeah it's to DVD's and it's about eight hours of teaching but it's my entire seminar. All the videos have video clips of all these false teachers binney hand Kenneth Copeland Jolo Seen Joyce Meyer Bill. Johnson Joseph Prints and I'll let people see and hear for themselves what they're actually teaching. It's not just me saying well. Kenneth Copeland said I play the clips? You see the video clips. You say what they're teaching right out of the Horse's mouth and then point by point. I corrected from scripture. Just go through and correct it from scripture. So it's It's a critique of the word of faith movement New Apostolic Reformation. Yeah and I think that there's one I'm not sure. Let me know about this. 'cause I've been wondering for a while is one of the most hilarious theology videos that I've seen I think it has Victoria hosting and She said Jesus was manned until God touched him an and she says moments and that's encouraging today and then it breaks over to you know that's heretical. Today is that real. A Rosette edited though. It's a real clip. No it's a real that was originally from you or somebody piece that together. No no yeah. That was mine. I found that video Yes he was leading a like communion Lord's supper search and Yes she's quoted her exactly right. Yeah she said that Jesus was just a man until touched him in his career the inside and that's encouraging day radical Larry seen it Shared I shared every year. Pops up in my memories on facebook You you also have other material as well I'm very found of and I grabbed it. as smif aspires for pastoral ministry. This your book do not hinder them made me rethink the baptism of children. I know we got like a mature. Daryl where where we at here? I understand the Paleo position better. I'll say that understand.

These wolves like the those scenes. The HINZ Copeland's Johnson's. It is important for us to understand what these people are actually believing what they're actually teaching so that we can correctly rebuke these teachings. Yeah and You know I'm I'm very encouraged by what seems to be many people that are starting to come out of these colts and you know you can only attributed to the power of the. Gospel that is brought forth by faithful believers. Yeah Yeah that's right and you know James kind of tagging onto that one of the great the logical ironies in all of this. Is that the people in word of faith new reformation. They would look at people like us sadness and they say oh you don't believe in the Holy Spirit you don't believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to the contrary so faults to the contrary I am so confident in the power of the person of the Holy Spirit of God that I do not believe that someone can be in dwelt by him in. Stay in this kind of deception and even if the Holy Spirit of God is strong enough to save us. He strong enough to deliver out of deception. And so there are some scattered seep in these falls church. Absolutely there are some scattered seat now. There are no mature. Shake zero there there. There are no mature Christians at go. Did these churches none. Because if you're mature in Christ you wouldn't be going to these Turkey slow but there are some immature. Christians are baby Christians but what will happen when they hear the truth when they see the truth from the word of God? Explain to them. They see it. They're gonNA come out and that's GONNA stay there. That's what I've seen in scripture of promise. All these wonderful plans for our lives of you know if we tied just just enough in this ninety day tithing challenge than God is. GonNa pour down the blessings of heaven owner We're going to prosper in all of our ways. But you know what I started reading the book of acts and I Seen Stephen. Getting installed a Peter. Getting crucified upside down. You know I started seeing these saints and I was like us this loosely because none of deserve good in this life I use this very loosely but if any body ever deserved to have complete blessing and prosperity in this life it was those followers of Christ who went out in and proclaimed that Gaza despite their shortcomings if anybody deserves if anybody deserved it. Surely It was the Apostle Paul after his conversion right In his rightfulness and we know how that ended. Yup Yup just just looking at them and then thinking about what I deserve. But I'm being told I deserve the complete opposite very insulting. I believe to the Holy Spirit. Yes indeed absolutely absolutely well Justin. I'M NOT GONNA take up too much more of your time.

Tara Brach: Radical Compassion
"Known for her pioneering work integrating western psychology with eastern spiritual traditions in this very moving discussion tower talks about her dedication to social activism and how it fueled her interesting meditation and the transformation of consciousness from a young age she shares. How living in an Ashram for twelve years laid the groundwork for several Buddhist Meditation Practices. She would later. Discover such as Jonah practice. The Pasta in Zog Chin Tower compares the benefits of each of these. And how each has deeply informed the development of her own unique practices especially those focused on self compassion tower and I also discussed her thoughts on radical compassion and what it means for compassion to be an all inclusive active and embodied expression in the world tower considers how we might shine a light of awareness on both personal and political biases and furthermore. How might Konate this aspiration despite our deepest conditioning? I so much enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too. I heard something interesting. You said you led to an Ashram for a while I did. I wish an Ostrom community. It's kind of a Yoga Meditation Ashram for about eleven years. That was in Boston. It was in Boston and then in Washington area. Also there were ashrams around the country as very intense Saad Nar spiritual discipline and we'd get up at four in the morning each morning and do two and a half hours of yoga meditation and chanting and Prayer and then work for community businesses. You know so service was really T- and teach yoga. It was really built in part of part of it. What tradition what. You'll go traditional Clinton lead yoga. All the group was three eight. Joe Healthy happy. Holy Oh wow yeah so it was that Yogi Bijon. Yes yes so was he the Goo at the Ahead internationally there were teachers in different local communities also and so. How do you come across those teachings? Well it's curious because I didn't think I was on my way to that when I when I was in college. I was a very much of a social activist. I was involved with tenants rights organizing community organizing and very much kind of my family. My parents were very liberal and engaged so I was planning to go to Cornell law school and carry forth and then I started doing yoga for health. You know it just seemed like a wholesome thing to do and I would go to these rallies or meetings and people would be in. There'd be a lot of aggression a lot of them and then I go to a yoga class. And I'd there'd be this peaceful feeling that come over and kind of unitive feeling. I remember one nine in particular right after Yoga class walking in the spring evening and I paused and it was like my body and my mind or in the same place at the same time and I just had the sense. This is what I cherish. This is what I really need. And then there was a pause. And then this is what the world really needs so I went from kind of radical politics radical inquiry into the nature of awareness and compassion and rather than going to law school. I went and joined an Ashram where I'd been doing the people that were teaching. Yoga and the next decade shift dry in terms of external. Going to your plan to go to law school you're involved in activism activism and then you found this place of peace. Hell were you a distant. I must've been about nineteen ninety. Yeah you know I was. I was very much into wanting the world to be a peaceful more loving place but what became so clear is that that transformation is only possible by transforming consciousness. So that's what kind of turn my attention inward more. It's like how am I at peace? Am I living from love? Those kind of questions and it just became clear that that's where I needed to pay attention and felt like those like two different totally different experiences. There's this place where there was a lot of energy worked up energy the activism and it sounds like maybe. I'm putting words in your mouth but it was like this idea that division will division sort of helps solve division in a way or and but then there was also this other space in the yoga world where you were feeling personal unification between like your mind and your body and somehow you saw that as an answer to what you were trying to solve with the activism as well beautifully too. So you are. You're still had the same mission in a sense absolutely would just picking up different tools the mission if I had to say what it was is transformation a world. That's more you know just loving happy place and of course I was very aware of my own suffering and realized that both for my own healing and for the world's healing that we need to be paying attention to how internally we judge Jim we blame and we're aggressive and we're grasping and greedy and it just became more clear to me that that needed attention. I very quickly. I found myself wanting to be engaged in the world again in more Political ways but I but I did go slow at it and I have reentered over the decades so what was Ashram life like. Because you said you were getting up at four. Am Doing Asada. What does Assad no look like in that tradition tradition? You take a culture. That's the first thing. That's very yogi. Yogi yeah take a cold shower and then gather with in this case sixty other people and do some very vigorous yoga we were. It's a linear Yoga's are at least at that. Time was very athletic. Yoga how very energetic and then do meditations are creosote chant and you come into silence also and some prayers and and go into the world and be of service that was that was the notion so then when you also training to be a yoga teacher as well very quickly. 'cause I took to the Oga. I love the ogre and back then I was super flexible and it came to me really naturally so I came very actively yoga teacher and teaching in Boston at the center there and and loved it. It was great. There's an irony to it that I I looked like this fabulous. Yogi back then. 'cause I'm My joints are very. Everything's very elastic. It turns out I have a genetic disorder that leads to hypermobility so that over time. Not only was yoga. Not Good for me. It was actually now. I have to be really careful and it was. It was quite an ego teaching. 'cause I was rather proud of I was in vain Yogi so it was very humbling to you know. Find out that I got to a point that I got very sick. Where when the disorder actually really showed itself more fully. When I was in my early fifties and to the point that couldn't really walk up inclines. My knees were so bad and for about I was in a downward spiral for about eight years and then seemed to Plateau and now I've built up out of it so actually doing okay. But that was one of those life experiences it actually gave rise to writing my second book true refuge because I had a face that I might not have a body that lasted long. While it was alive. Couldn't do much. And so how could I find peace and love and happiness? No matter what you know sense at the at the Ashram Your Yoga and therefore your body was in a sense. You're refuge at that time in a way you might say right. It was. It was an easy access to feeling good because I do the yoga and feel really energized and vibrant and alive. And then I'd sit still and meditation I. I also took well to concentration. I would practice concentrating and I'd get very still very fast and it was very rewarding while so many so did you have experiences of the subtle body through that practice in terms of Kunda lenient. Those sort of things that did was that part of that experience of the Ashram for you. So I'll take care and language here because I think there's a lot of misunderstandings about the the different levels of subtle energy bodies and so on sign. I don't WanNA claim to be some master subtle energy body experience so more. I would say that the the Buddhist understanding of Jonah is actually more useful in this. Which is that. There was enough collecting and settling when. I get quiet that there are feelings of tremendous piece welby and one s unit feelings and then when I left the Ashram and started going deeper into mindfulness. It produced more wisdom
The Bubble That Broke Kuwait
"And we've got got a doozy for you today. I'm joined by. Dr Is Rafi on Darius I cardiff Yes today I've got a story for you about one of the greatest stock bubbles of all time which occurred in of all places Kuwait Kuwait. Yes and the story begins in the late. Nineteen seventies during what is known as Kuwait's golden era so Kuwait had been this kind of sleepy desert outpost and then due to the massive influx of oil money. It became this bustling metropolis list. And I actually talked to a man named Saba Araya's who was a prominent businessman in Kuwait around this time and he talks about what Kuwait looked like when he was a kid. Growing growing up like Trinity. We have running water up happening structure The there was no air conditioning for looks up over elevators. And by the late nineteen seventies Kuwait had become this modern metropolis and it also become the financial center of the Middle East because they region was rocked by turmoil. At this point in Kuwait with its really well regulated financial sector and it's relatively stable political. Climate became came this magnet for all of this money that was fleeing turmoil. Elsewhere in the region is a pretty classic emerging markets story starts doing some things right and then all this money he starts coming in from other places And obviously that drove up prices in Kuwait's official stock market but it was very very tightly. Regulated it you know. There are lots of regulations about what kinds of companies could be listed there who was allowed to invest. How are they allowed to invest and made it very stable but it also made it kind of a boring place to invest all this money? That wants to invest in Kuwaiti companies. And if it can't do their maybe it will find some other way to invest invest in them. Well it did find another way. Basically right across the street from the official Kuwaiti stock market. A sort of love informal unofficial stock market developed it was known as the soup ALMANAC and it was literally in a air conditioned parking garage on the site eight of the old camel market and sugamo knock literally translates to the market at the place where the camels rest traders started gathering there and trading trading stocks amongst each other. And I spoke to Ben Craig who is a economic policy adviser for the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. And he's written a lot about the suit GALMOC Manakh And I have to clarify here. That everything he said in our interview only represents his personal views. He doesn't represent the views of the Federal Reserve. But I talked to him about this sort of informal formal market that developed. It was seen as an area where you could have fun but what Claes stays in the soup. I don't think I've heard that one before for we'll basically the government said hey. We like having this innovative kind of risky market with big returns. But we don't want the risk to infect the rest has to the economy so they put all these rules in place that said banks are not allowed to touch the super. They can't lend money to people who are investing there. It's got to be completely cut off from the financial sector her but of course traders don't like this because they don't want to just trade with the money they have in their pocket they WANNA borrow money in and you know potentially get even higher returns turns and so the system developed between the traders in the soup that I think was a little bit ingenious. The couldn't borrow money from the bank. So what they did is they had this system of writing post dated checks so basically card if I want to buy a stock for meal. It's worth one hundred dollars now and I think it's going to go up in the future. All right you a check I I say one hundred ten dollars and date it for a year from now you know like if your rent is due on the first you don't get paid till the third. Yeah date your check on the third. That's right that's what they were doing but they would do it for a year and in that situation. It's like you just lent me money for a year but then this sort of interesting thing happened with check check itself became a little bit like cash so suppose that maybe I want to buy some of that stock. I don't have any cash but I have that posted hosted shack and so I just passed that posted check onto a nar trader. It was essentially a way for these traders to print their own money and then Craig cautions against drawing any comparison to other markets. But in my opinion it's not all that different from what happened. In the run-up to the financial central crisis where mortgage-backed securities became much bigger than mortgages in this case the checks that were backed by stocks became much bigger than the stocks themselves selves. And thanks to this. System of kind of endless unregulated credit the Kuwaiti stock market skyrocketed. It became the third heard largest stock market in the world. Bigger even than London and Sobowale riotous says that this was turning people into instant millionaires. He recounted the story to me of going to his friend's apartment and I saw this huge big plate full with the new caveat. You know they by the House and then it was. Ten Cuba's maybe have the token of caveat on on the table I couldn't believe David and this market is started to draw in teachers and students and and he he talks about how you know. Doctors are quitting their jobs to run down to the Sukhoi ANOC and start trading eating stocks. It just became this national obsession that classic mania everybody sees it going up they think it will continue going up and we'll tell you how they started.
Bill Gates's top mistake? Letting Google's Android rule the world (The 3:59, Ep. 576)
"The. Welcome to the fifty nine I'm Joanie salesmen, offering. Bill Gates has owned up to his greatest mistake, and it's sitting on the sidelines while Google swept into dominate mobile gates, said that mobile operating systems are really a winner takes all world and Microsoft missed out on four hundred billion market opportunity when Google became the standard non apple phone platform, and it's true. I mean there's just Android in. There's I less, that's it. Where has that left by Chris oft? I mean for a while, you know, even in the PC world, it was, you know, windows and apple those were the two computers that you can really get out there and really missed the boat there when it came to the mobile market. I don't know if they just didn't see it as something viable. Obviously, we all know how the store of windows mobile came and went, but I think they had come in a little bit too late. I think had windows mobile came out, first, we wouldn't be having this conversation, we, it would be, you know, NAR Chai's hog. About how they said Android further at the time or something. Right. I mean well, one of the things that Bill Gates mentioned as a reason why Google that opportunity was because of windows, dominance previous computing era. They were facing a lot of antitrust. Yes stuff. I mean for, for more than a decade of that started to arise antitrust stuff that Google is facing. Right. But yeah, I it's hard to imagine how different the world would look if Microsoft had jumped on that train when it came right and focused, a lot more on mobile seen the potential that I'd had in the same way that apple and Google did. Yeah, it makes you wonder whether or not having duopoly, but having one of the duopoly be different company, if that would make me. It's crazy. The point that he made though about how this is a winner take all ecosystems. It's because, like blackberry was around then also as was windows mobile and Android, but it was weird that it was okay. We're only going to have these to let me know what he's set that but like. In that way, it was so interesting. Next up in the US FCC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks is leading effort to scrub US telecom networks of gear from walleye and others. Like it those that are thought to be a threat to the country's security. This comes as he was operated. Operators are racing toward deploying gear to build the next generation of wildness wireless known as five G a big topic of conversation on five G week, y'all the commerce apartment has blacklisted, while I and several other companies because of these national security concerns, what are your sources telling you about how much of a concern, these companies really are secured. I mean so most of the concern around, always not around like the phones that you can buy yourself about them building the infrastructure and the networks around it a lot of US government officials have basically like stated that, while as too close to the Chinese government for comfort that if they do end up building, our infrastructure that kind of gives a. Pathway for the Chinese government to spy on users using that network. While way has completely denied this at all time, saying that, you know, we are not giving information over the Chinese government. But there's a big, you know, concern that they don't have a choice if they if they the government demanded that data, they would get it from wall wave like based in China. Right. So the FCC Commissioner Commissioner starts his plan goes takes it a bit further than what others have called for where they have others. Have generally just called from don't use alway to build out five G. Yeah. You know going into the future. So Commissioner starts basically wants to go back to three g and four g networks already exists and take it out. The all out that, you know, you would take out like a building lead paint or something as a safety measure. Yeah. Right. We also have a new Bill in the Senate. That's seeking to take on tummies and maybe a little more transparency around how much data's worth what's the story. Yeah, this is from Senator Warner and Senator Holly from Missouri. So it has got bipartisan support. And the idea is, if you're a tech company that has more than one hundred million users, they, you will would be required to tell the users, you know what data you're taking from them, how much you're selling it for him. What you're using who's getting this data? That companies aren't required. I mean Google and Facebook. We'll tell you what data. They're taking from you. But thing about all the settings I have to go through just to see that. And none of them. Tell you how much it's worth, but I can say this from other data sales, one person, specific date is not worth that much, I believe, one company was selling it for every thousand people there location data. It was worth about nine dollars and fifty cents less than a penny. A person the idea is like, when there's millions and billions of people using it like that all compounds like adds up to. No Facebook and Twitter and Google all these internet giants like that's where the network affect. Yeah. Yeah. For these stories, and others check outsing dot com. I'm Joanie salesman. Alfred, thanks for listening.

Just January seventeen just put it a hard just to be done and go ahead and change our family tree. So from that point is when we started to to both of you just woke up January of seventeen and so we're gonna do this or what I was gonna happen. I did I did. She was she's been ready for the last four years before that also you were the ish ish. Okay, shares she was game on and you issued it I wasn't gonna throw him under the bus threw himself under did it. I saw it. That's there there it is. Yeah. The funny thing is that we had gotten back into that lifestyle of just payments, whatever she got mad at me for wanting to get back on like what we're pretty comfortable. You know? So is about another month or so of unkind heard coming back around. Did you go back through the class? We actually started to coronate one. Oh god. That's even better. Right.

Because like I was just too selfish and trying to make the decisions and trying to make myself happy all the time and instant gratification really lose that, you know. That's really good. And you know, what occurred to me when you said that when I first started teaching this stuff twenty five years ago. Nobody used the word entitlement. But a lot of people said, I work hard, I deserve. And they were entitled I deserve this. I did our card, and I would just smack on you know. I mean, it's just like you don't deserve squat. You're broke, you know, but that word entitlement that popped up about a decade ago. I guess everybody started using it there is that that's a beautiful explanation of that really insightful to because there's something that happens when you lose that on the other side of that's contentment. Really, isn't it? You relax. There's a striving kind of an anger almost an angst to entitlement in there. Yeah. That's beautiful. Well, done good for you. So what about you, Justin?
