And I'm going to teach him how to build a stock. With that combination of good metalwork and my stock, they're going to be able to produce rifles to the standard that I established in 1984. Where we're at right now, Tom and it's kind of it's always been a pleasure to me to recognize that we started in 1984, but a lot of my rifles are at work and on the third generation. Granddad bought it, used it for his hunting career, gave it to his son, who's used it for his career, and now the grandson's got it. Wow. And this is, you know, but it's going to be that way and continue. Sure. The one thing that I was insistent on with material selection and techniques and so forth was I don't care who you are. You can't wear it out. I gave bob nasr an action back when we first got started. Right. And he put it in his plastics lab for 12 and a half years, and he couldn't wear it out. Bob naswar can't wear it out, nobody could wear it. 'cause they're shooting a lot of ammo, a lot of bullets see those things. There you go. So new ultralight arms is going to continue. You're still going to be involved with it in some form of fashion for at least a transition period together. Oh, I'm going to be here answering the telephone and taking care of as much as I need to and folks want me to and we'll just keep on going. Well, it's terrific. I mean, I'm excited for you. I know it's a transition. New stuff, but man, you are mister ultralight when it comes to rifles. I mean, you've got entire category of hunting rifles that have been pattered after what you started. You know, the NRA has got their golden bullseye pioneer word award. Right. And they gave me that thing in 2011. I called our friend Joe Graham and I said, what are you doing to me? And he said, I do nothing. I said, Joe, I'm just hillbilly trying to make a living. He said, no, you don't understand. When you started in 1984, the one in ultralight anything in that room.

"Throughout your career Help us understand and put into context the one that we're seeing right now with the S&P 500 just continuing to grind higher and the COVID variants still making their way around the world and concerns about growth If the markets got anything wrong initially when COVID came about it was that the markets were going to be more resilient than they turned out And then people saw it In other words when we went through COVID people thought okay the economy is going to collapse and all of a sudden the market will collapse But as it turns out maybe because of federal intervention for sure but because of federal support and other factors the stock market actually has gone up and in the private equity world that I operate in Markets have never been better People are making staggering sums of money compared to what they did before So it's very difficult to predict Right now I would say that the federal government is probably going to increase interest rates next year That should have a somewhat impact on the market of probably reducing prices a bit And I suspect inflation won't go away So that might impede the market a bit But I don't see any collapse in the near term I don't see any kind of correction of any consequence We might have a one day two day blip because of something that happens But I ten or 15% market correction I don't see that for an enduring period of time in the next year or so That's kind of a group cofounder and co chairman David rubinstein also hosts have peer to peer conversations on Bloomberg He's got a bunch of books out about the conversations he's had with great leaders historians the latest one It's called the American experiment dialogs on a dream And that wraps up the first hour of the week in addition to Bloomberg businessweek from Bloomberg radio I'm Carol nasr.

"So lucky to have people who helped me and who opened the door and with no vested interest with no agenda or machiavellian. Exactly. Purpose. Exactly just helped me. So like in my role, I feel like, okay, what can I do in this position that I made? What do you feel? I feel like it is my responsibility. So I'm really hoping to build a community. I consider this role. This role isn't about me. It's about we. It's about the community that I can bring together. And share these platforms and elevate these voices and bring them along with me. So it's about the we, but I believe we all have a responsibility. It's like you get through the door and everyone of us has the responsibility to look back from where you came and extend your hand, right? And pull someone in with you and I just think if we can all do that to your earlier question, there'll be meaningful change. But those people who helped you, right? Those people have always been around. And they will continue to do good things, and they will continue. And we just all have to be inspired. The fashion industry isn't all bad. You know, I think a lot of the messaging that's out in the media right now is very much like, oh, Samir and ass was the first or so and so is the first in this terrible industry that has kept people down. And yes, there's need for change, but this industry isn't entirely filled with horrible people. There are a lot of really wonderful people. And there are people who gave me my chance and who gave me opportunities and who hired me at different points of my career. And yes, the industry was too narrow, and it still is, but I just that idea that it's filled with all these terrible people. I feel like we have to change that narrative also. 'cause I love this industry. Why do you love this industry? Because it's afforded me this incredible life, you know? Because at the end of the day, it's creative people coming together. It's an exchange. It's a dialog, it's a community. I love community. And there's endless possibility in this industry. Do you think that's understood by people who don't work in fashion? Fashion industry is often seen as this kind of superficial world filled with antagonistic, bitchy people. All stabbing each other in the back, you know, partially because of the narratives that are portrayed in mainstream media. What does fashion as an industry actually stand for? What does it mean in our culture in society and business? Why is fashion important? I think that just depends on who you ask, but if you're asking me Imran, I would say it just, it's everything. It reflects our times. It is a community. It's creative. It is a social commentary. It's kind of a social experiment, really. I think that there's something really beautiful about our community. People come from all over, right? And it's a misfits, too, right? So many misfits who find their way in and find their voice and their place. And we get to dream, you know? We saw two incredible shows today and those people are part of my community. Yeah, and we get to do that. And we get to do that. And it's remarkable, and it employs so many people, and it's a massive industry that does a lot of good. Yes, there are things that need to evolve and change. But like anything, you know, this idea that it's like this evil thing or it's filled with bad people. That narrative needs to change because it's not the case. It's also filled with a lot of generous, kind sensitive, thoughtful people. That's what this show is about. That's why I wanted to do this show because I want to show what fashion is really like. You know, warts and all, but not just the warts. Yeah. Because what's seen outside is just the warts. And those of us who are lucky enough to sit on the inside and see how it all works, it's like inspiring. It's super inspiring. And there are people like business people, creative people who are, you know, who see what needs to change, and they're working really hard and they're very committed to those ideals. And that's wonderful. Okay, let's talk a bit about fashion week. Yes. This is the first fashion week in a very long time where so many people have come together. There was also a lot of talk amid the pandemic that they're too many fashion weeks too many shows to many products to many collections too many brands. Too much pressure too much running around too much travel, what does it feel like to be back in the thick of it? It feels like the greatest gift. Can you feel that way? Yeah. I just think this week having reconnecting with peers and colleagues and, you know, seeing clothes in person and fabrics move and ideas and listening to music. I mean, all of it has just been a gift after this long and painful time. But there have been lessons learned in the past 16 months. What are those lessons? The value of community for me, the value of the importance of being rooted in your family. And just maybe not running so much, you know, being a little more still. Yeah. And I'm hoping that we can be excited about coming together and we can still come together without letting go of some of the lessons. And I think the only way that we can do this and I'd love to hear your thoughts, but I think the only way we can do this is collectively. We have to all be committed to creating space for these new ideals in these values, but I don't know what do you think? Yeah, I think that I have not heard the industry in the whatever. 13, 14 years, I've worked in a not seen the industry actually take the moment to reflect. I've never seen so much introspection. I've never seen so much openness. I've never seen so many uncomfortable conversations happening. And I think that's good. And I think it's been really hard on so many levels. As an industry, it's like a reckoning. Right? There is a social reckoning. There's an industry back. It's happening all around. And growth is never easy. It's painful, but it's necessary. And fashion is not alone in the reckoning, but you know, because we were in fashion and because it's such a visual industry that's so visible now, so global and so connected to everything that's happening in the world. Yeah. You called it a reflection. It's like, it can be the example. It can be the example that everybody sees, because for a long time, what everybody saw did not reflect the community. It did not reflect the people we see on the subway. It did not reflect our communities and the people that we grew up with in the cultures that we grew up with. But it's nice that finally people are thinking, okay. The time has come. The time has come. And we can never go back. We can never go back. We just, we can't. Tell me your thoughts on balenciaga. It was incredible. I have to say, I walked in there and not knowing I didn't know what to expect. And I don't use this word often, but it was masterful. Tell me what was masterful about it. I think he surprised, he took a tradition and in this one collection he just completely moved it forward, but he did it with such tremendous respect. It's like before you can break the rules you really have to learn them, right? Before you can deconstruct the codes you have to really understand them. And I think he really, I don't know how long what his tenure has been at this house. It's been since 2015. He got a point. So it's like, in this time, it's like he's just been the student of these codes and then he was able to apply them to the way he sees the world and bring all of himself. He brought all of himself to that collection, right? And the way he sees the world, but he did it through the lens of with the codes of mister Valencia. You know, the obvious, but like the casting, I thought was incredible, but you know, the tailoring that reimagining the.

"On the beauf podcast. So I wanted to start with a personal question. Okay. Because it's been, yeah, it's been a crazy 16 months, right? And we were all here in Paris, 16 months ago. Yeah. And then we all went home and then. And then the world changed and everything we know changed. So what changed for you personally? You're going to get me to cry on the first question. What changed me personally? I okay, I'm gonna start personally before professionally. I'd never had this much time with my son. I'd never been this still in my life. I'd never been forced to just stop and stay in my community. My immediate community and that my extended community. I mean, I didn't leave my four block radius for three months, maybe four months. So it was a stillness. It was a time to cocoon with my son and really sort of spend time that I've never had with him. You know, he was 8. I had three weeks maternity leave when he was born. So I've never had that much time with him. So while I was separated from my family in Canada, it was a moment of deep connection with my son. And profound introspection that I was able to experience because of the stillness. So when you have that personal stillness and introspection, it's inevitable that mixes in with the professional. Well, yeah, I mean, I started a new job in all of this at the same time. And what was it like starting a new job in the middle of the pandemic? Editor in chief of Harper's BAZAAR is not a small job either. No, but I was like, of course this is how I get the job. Like, of course, I get the job when it's complete lockdown and I'm working from the spare room in my tiny apartment. You know, to have to connect this time has taught me how to be nimble, right? It's taught me to let go of certain ideas. You can't hold on to things. It's taught me to let go. And in taking on this role in this moment, I've had to find new ways in with people. 'cause all you have is a screen. And so to dream and to think about storytelling, but to also engage with a new team that didn't know me that I didn't know. I had to find new ways in to connect with people. And it's an interesting exercise. And I think, you know, the whole thing of people saying, well, you know, this moment has taught us that, you know, we don't have to all be together all the time. I mean, I think these tools are great and teaching us certain things, but I think if anything, I've learned how much the value of being part of a community, having the experience, the personal experience of someone, it's made me appreciate those moments to have all that taken away when you get it back. You just say thank you. Your appointment in this role was not just a big change for you. Yeah. It represented pretty significant shift for Harper's BAZAAR. For fashion media, the first woman of color ever in the history of Harper's BAZAAR at the helm as editor in chief. You've had some time now for it to sink in. It was about a year ago that you got yesterday was my year anniversary. Yesterday. What do you think it signified now that you have some time to reflect on that? What did it mean to you personally, but what do you think it also signified for all those young women from different backgrounds who never saw someone like you in a role like this? I think that in that moment, everyone felt seen. I think it was so much about me and, you know, people rooting for me, but I think ultimately, people were also rooting for their likeness, right? It's like you just, it's an acknowledgment of all people who have felt not seen and it's an acknowledgment that so many people exist, right? And I think that is that that is the significance. We can never go back now. We can never go back and opportunities have been given to a few people because after mine, more appointments have happened. And we'll never go back to what it was. And it just means that more people can dream and aspire to something that they never thought they could. And that's a beautiful thing. Do you think the industry is actually taking these topics seriously now? Do you think the industry is really changing? It doesn't take an entire industry to make meaningful change. I'm in my position and I've already made meaningful change within my role. And there's going to be a ripple effect than that. There have been other editors appointed, and they're always also making meaningful change. So the effects of that will just bring about change. It just can. The arc, the arc of success, I think is long, it's measured by different metrics. And maybe the whole entire industry won't want to move or won't want to make the changings, but enough of us are here now. And so yeah, it will happen because it's never going to go back to what it was before. It can't. It just can't. What does real inclusion look like in fashion? Walk down the street. To me, that's exactly what it should mean. It should be real inclusion means that everyone feels welcome. Everyone feels that they can come. And anyone who's experienced otherness can feel welcome to follow their dreams and to participate in a conversation without fear of being excluded. You know, I ride the train every day in New York. And whenever I get on the train, you know, you see all this diversity, like shape, sizes, colors, that's what every industry should look like. You shouldn't be excluded because where you come from or what you look like or your sexual orientation or how you identify yourself. It should just be are you willing to do the work? And do you have the passion to try? And I think we will get there. It will take time, but we will get there. But the industry wasn't always thinking about these issues. I mean, you have a very esteemed career Vanity Fair in style, L all of these places. Back in the days when you first started, what was it like? To be the only one. I wasn't the only one, but I was one of a very few. But I wasn't the only one. And it was hard, but I think that throughout my life. I've never walked anywhere in my life and seen my likeness everywhere. So I think it's this thing that you sort of become accustomed to, right? Like no one's gonna look like me. No one really looked like me and my neighborhood growing up. It was a very loving community, but no one really looked like me. I think it was hard and I certainly experienced tremendous racism, but I just within the industry. Oh, my gosh, yeah. I've had some horrible things said to me during the course of my examples that you're open to share. I mean, there's one I will share and it's one I've shared before, but this is just an example of having to go meet an editor, a big powerful editor and everyone's like, okay, you have to go meet this editor and, you know, let's make sure you look okay. And then someone says, so and so editor doesn't like messy hair. And so all the people who around me who are trying to help me get ready are like, oh my God, and I'm looking who has messy hair who has messy hair. I don't have like who has miss here? And I realize, you know, 'cause my hair when it's out is very big, and I realized they're talking about me. And that's just one example of my natural texture hair was messy. You know, I didn't fit the very narrow profile of what was acceptable. But that's what it's like when you move through the world when it doesn't reflect your likeness. There's no room for your likeness, and it just takes time to bring about that change. We'll be back shortly with more from the Bo F show right after this break.

Nasa had four critical parameters when choosing landing site for viper available sunlight earth visibility for communications from the moon to the earth data showing the potential presence of water and other resources and terrain that is well suited for viper to navigate once on the surface. Vipers mission will last one hundred days and covered between ten to fifteen miles and while a baseline traverse route through the nobili region has been identified for the rover.

Heavy breathing heavy breathing so many times or the past few weeks we have posted the mole patrol and then like someone will will breach the barrier and it will be like i'll see it and i can tell that they're tweeting about the mall and i'll get so nervous that it was the thing i'll get so scared that it's the thing and then i'm about to get hit by the thing and it hasn't happened yet as far as i know a closed as it's been has been the tiny bubbles stuff enough people like singing tiny bubbles at me jerks and that's it that's what i've got. That's what i know and every time it's happened a stop. Please stop doing it. I know what you're doing and know that this is a part of the thing you're closer to like telling me what it is. I wanna be. We don't have to worry about that anymore after this after this podcast is up. Presumably after this podcast. Actually i've i've seen the entirety of season two of the more. We will not have podcasts at about it by the time you're hearing these words but the three of us are going to finish the mole season. Two tonight yeah. So by the time you're hearing me say it is now okay to ask me about the mole. I think to season two. Yeah just in case we go beyond. No promises thomasson. Nothing imminent news a year for season. Two of the mold like it'll be at least that long up in twenty twenty two ebbs names so yeah. So that's what we're gonna do to watch the episode and then we're gonna come back here and discuss it any last words. Final thoughts been watching this episode weekly rapport serious serious right. I'm just excited. I was so excited. You guys were coming over. I like forgot up the episode cake is. There's a lot of cake. Here's ed usually been hoarding cake like. What's the deal. no one has been here for eighteen. Yes you're right you're going by anyone else. We're here to eat cake and watch the ball. Nasr what we shall do. We will begin the process now of closing things out. there will be a brief musical interlude. I'm sure here on the podcast. And then when we are on the other side of it..
NASA's Orion Spacecraft Accommodates Astronauts of All Sizes
"Nasr's orion spacecraft is designed to accommodate astronauts of all sizes. Who may need to spend weeks at a time. In the capsule this is innovation now bringing you. Stories of revolutionary ideas emerging technologies and the people behind the concepts that shape the future. The orion spacecraft features advanced technologies that can sustain the crew during long space travel. Here's sarokin diani. A human systems engineer at nasa johnson space center on the ground engineers and astronauts simulate many of the tasks that will be performed in the crew module evaluating how astronauts interact with displays. Controls seat design sleeping at exercise. Accommodations and more the orion crew will be able to command the ical using three multifunction displays space shuttle crews had to use nearly two thousand switches and controls to command. The call astronauts will sleep in sleeping bags hung in several different places in the cabin to maximize space. There are even armholes so they can use their tablets before they go to sleep. All of these details are planned and tested to be sure that the crew can live and work comfortably and efficiently no matter how long they call the capsule
ADEPT's Spiderweave Material Tested at NASA Arc Jet Facilities
"Sending science to other worlds saving space and enabling safer atmospheric entries are top priorities. The adaptable deployable entry and placement technology. Or adept could help achieve both goals previous adept iterations involved stitching together individual panels to comprise the heat shield but engineers found that often lead to increased stress and breaks within the material spider. We've a new type of fabric developed through nasr's small business innovation. Research program uses a design architecture where materials are continuously woven into the heat shields fabric of waiting these issues. The flexible material can also be packed up at launch and stored in a compact space until the vehicle enters a planetary atmosphere. This summer spider. We've was put to the test in the art jet facilities at nasr's ames research center. The adept team observed firsthand. Just how well. The new fabric took the heat when exposed to temperatures above three thousand degrees

"Right there ever motivated by essentially the bonus that would make the over the air and by very reliable financial That effectively you know. Help them but didn't really have the big picture. And then you know so. I think essentially wasting time in you know. You can't please everyone all the time and he shouldn't And i think Lesson learned with with that actually for me was the calloused russia's really go all in with acorn which is what if you believe in it if that's a conviction You know you put your money mouth as and you you know you don't mess around with people who really day that. They're they're into private but they don't really they don't really care at at the core their consent differently So it's hard to search for that and and to identify that right. How do you figure that out you know. I wish i wish i had a perfect recipe. You know i. I think in order to be innovative and in order for to really make an impact you need to have kind of a positive attitude in attitude that allows you to take on challenges without you know being jaded because it can easily talk is up out of those things You know and and you know of course entrepreneurs own was always opposed upheld so and he have to get use it at and have a skin to deal with that but i think at some point yet to have that objective in kind of like the mendoza line. I'm using baseball. Analogy here to know that this is you know you below that line. Just gotta drop it. You know if you're a betting below two hundred is just too late. Forget about it. Let's you know. I think that's sometimes as entrepreneurs we have unending seattle and we think everybody thinks that way but the reality is that's not the case and people think differently. Doesn't you know again good better indifferent but if if your objective is to make mc change and author molly That's not everybody's objective then. That's not a good place to be community. You know you need to have some degree of control over what you do. I is just all you do aside problems and not actually craters leashes right now. That's that's awesome and you know speaking of enthusiasm now. What would you say you're most excited about today. You know it's kind of fat. Actually celicas a more excited that because of covert we have the ability to actually make long longer lasting changes. You know. it's it's very sad is due alleged sword. Obviously nobody likes the situation. We're in one hundred. Thirty thousand plus people have died and and and all of the numbers are just horrendous and just like sickening higher. I think there's awareness as we have also seen you know politically speaking with black lives matter that. There's there's an awakening for for a lot of these underlying kind of problems. That really have been around for a long time. You know and and problems that all of us that we have for whatever reason either ignored or just haven't paid much attention to so. I kind of feel like you know. There's a disaster that because of covent and because of much greater awareness all of his art can having that can actually push through some of these changes and push out some of these people who are really obstinate and a day that are very singularly focused on daring dress because You know we're at twenty percent. Our gdp going to healthcare there was also we getting are just so poor such a poor return that you know what we need to make a change and people who are entrenched in a positive for really decades a you know without really make in too much when innovation When push him out. Yeah i mean you're you're calling it out and i think it's important to to embrace truth especially in a time of challenge and i think that i mean my my thinking the same jim right now. We have an opportunity right. There's a lot of people experiencing pain. It's difficult were changing our lifestyle. How do things you know. The onus is on us and if you're listening to this today in town you to do what we need to do to get more for our healthcare dollar and also You know to to do our part and pick up the trash from the ground so really appreciate the insights you've shared with us on blockchain. It's always an area of curiosity for all of us said. Thank you for making it practical today for us before we conclude gem i love if you could just share closing thought and then the best place where the listeners could get in touch with you sure. Yeah yeah thank you Causing bob would be that. There is an opportunity entrepreneurs in in healthcare I think reality and perception by and large has been that healthcare is a very difficult space to break into for entrepreneurs. I don't want to you know put on pollyanna glasses and say that has changed completely us not ready to case right. You know unfortunately One year in in many other industries about a decade in healthcare So things don't move that quickly or or those people obstacles on on kind of just go away that quickly higher. I think there's there's definitely opportunity to preneurs strongly encourage as a kind of a more practical advice that you know. Look into ways where he can essentially make data accountable right. It doesn't have to be just functioning number ways of doing this. Obviously i think blockchain particularly time next generation blockchain not so much proof of work type of bitcoin. Because it's too expensive to do so. I think you know end of the day. Almost all of healthcare's about data right. You know at one that will i'm not referring to medical treatment and You know there's tremendous efficiencies to be had by having data that flows faster that the moves with less hobbs. That's more interoperable also can be trusted right. I think there's an opportunity for a number of entrepreneurs nest face you know and you could look at it from genomic data to public health data to clinical trials. I mean you name. It does all kinds of of data is a very data rich space healthcare. And i strongly believe that there's opportunity for thinking forward-looking entrepreneurs the technology background to marry that level of of technology skill and expertise with healthcare data. And i think you know. I don't think everybody's doing i think there's a. There's a window. Well let's take advantage that window if that person is you. You're listening to this. Take a look into that window. Take a step into that window right jim. Yeah definitely you know could be could be doing a lot less productive things and if the interest is there jim aware can people reach out to you or connect with you to to learn. Sorry i know that's okay so you ask. The question of forgot to so our website is the best place in general is a core dot com a c. e. r. dot com. And yet you can contact me through the contact.

"Act Kind of spells it out that you know consumers need more control over their their data consumers need to be able to get their data from wherever it happens to be. You know i think so. It's fine to say that but consumers have eighteen different identities on eighteen different systems makes it difficult in the cures allows us essentially have an agent so like a developed like acorn providing an app to to retrieve that data but you know having some kind of a national health. Id best simply allows you to identify. Jim eighteen different systems. That really is the longterm way of doing this without providing all kinds of credentials and things like this and really making it difficult as wanting to say. Here's a law is anything to actually make practicable so. I think that those both those things. I think they're very least are kind of in our favor. You know with this but honestly this is You know this is an area where i think. Technically speaking is relatively straightforward. You know you take this as an example. You take this national. Id number that. We've created the add to it definitive by metrics such as at like your voice essentially with a very high degree of accuracy could have your voice be completely uniquely identified using machine learning almost one hundred percent accuracy. Right so that number plus my voice could be essentially that if you like the private key for me to be able to tap into all kinds of different systems they issue really is going to be the political thing around this because that's not gonna culture is not going to change that quickly. Yeah no that's some good call outs and so appreciate your insights there i. I've i've always found that very interesting you know. And the and the promise and to your point there's some some vested interest in not going there by some larger. Hr players and so you know as you and and Acor worked to operationalize and make these things usable. What's one of the big things that you could point to as you've made business better or you've improved outcomes. I think before we say that we're You know we have like really improved. Healthcare outcomes at at a larger scale. Because i think that's one is united. They say takes village i too. I think a lot of these were doing are are still really fledgling in the bigger scheme of things Including all of the the real time and boxing enabled things however to me. Wh- what we're really kind of trying to an already. Seeing some outcomes and results and suddenly good rhetoric and feedback from clients is really this idea of of you know we do two things really well. The first thing that we do well is really extract. Real-time blockchain technologies into our software. Right so so. Essentially you get software as a service cloud offering that you would get from any number of other vendors by you. Basically get this Realtime audibility and you know Computational trust and confidence score as built in. that's really just there. You don't have to worry about it and manage keys and and native tokens and things like this. We abstract all for you. So i think that's that's one thing that you know we kind kinda do. And we've seen people appreciate that but the other thing we do is really provide very rich analytics on the data that then you know we claim is is as trustworthy as we can make right and i think what we've seen is that there are used as for instance We have public health users. Who is our systems For for really managing essentially debts mortality data and particularly with with regards to the opioid crisis. Which was a huge crisis before. Kobe became crisis. Does your by you know really what they do. Is they use our. How addicts acknowledgee Wait us very very simple to use is oriented for end users not for programmers or you know. Kind of experts can Visualization engineers and things. Like this which which. I think is a differentiator because end of the day. What we really want to do is peel with the miala. Gis forensic pathologists chief medical examiner as opposed to appeal to engineers like ourselves because the real value that the actual medical value doesn't sit with technology people. It sits functional people. You know. And i saw that when i was at the c. Really my clients radiologists up cup experts but they needed dependent on people like me. You know who have spent Would spend many weeks months really just manipulating data. Before they would even be able to really get their hands on and do anything with it. But that's not right. You i think in twenty twenty Way to get this to dami in as absorbable and easy to use a way you know. It gives them control. I united as quickly as possible. I think that's what we're trying to do. And i think that's really kind of our You know if there is an improvement holcombe. That's what we're trying to do this. We're seeing some good results very cool. This is great in your. It's really it comes down to making it usable right and and not having to wait forever and and you know. Be a black box. I mean so sally. Imagine this. imagine it went wall street and said Okay this this financial transaction that you had you're gonna get your settlement in six months and by the way you really know why. Or how was that all i mean. He'll be ludicrous right. That's kind of what we see you know in the world of healthcare. Yeah no well said. It's a great great example. And so what's been one of the biggest setbacks jim that you've seen and and what was the key learning that came from it. Yeah you know. I think a entrepreneur. I'm sure you can also have understand this and thighs for this. I think there are times where like you wanted to examples that. Come to my where i work. We have worked with entities and specific individuals so-called. Kol's key opinion leaders stickling pharma. Where really honestly their motivations and incentivisation were completely misaligned to ours..

"What what is right and what happens with this data and these are just two points in a in a very large system. And how do you manage it so so. Tell us about how acor helps with that. And i'd love to hear some. You know real applications here. Jim because you know there's a lot of talk about blockchain but to your point how do you make it usable. Yeah yeah absolutely. I think But but i would actually really echo what you said. you know. Way that we say with even kind of a little bit. Negative towards spock chain. Because i think you know it has become fodder for you know. Essentially protective kind of perspective offering strike offer offerings. That are only on powerpoint You know and people who pontificate about it without any prove that they've actually done it or useful so you know. I only want us to have another conversation like that. I think that's not worth anybody's time so back to your question What we let me give you a specific example. There's several i can. I can point you to buy. Here's one so we're working right now with A consortia including mayo clinic Save systems out of california and some some labs such as quest lockward and header folks Really building and have built a a large-scale kind of a cova nineteen Kind of essentially what. We're called diagnostics and triage platform. So there is a mobile app and we are white labeling that app for various entities just last week at umass seem delta airlines had an announcement about the work. They're doing with We save all systems and with males specifically that's the application referring to and now a couple of weeks before that arizona state university editor similar Press release or log. Entry again underlined afrim that myself my team. Kind kinda large acid characters in this consortium Aback blockchain piece. They're two very important. Things one is that we have created what we call a health. Id which is a unique. Id aurea which obviously is not. Every time is unique id but what is unique about. This is that we actually generated in real time using the head era Distributed ledger technology as public ledger entry. So for every number like my number is say one. Two three four that's unique. Id you can clearly see de unique. You can clearly see was recorded on the public blockchain and he can interrogate that just number not necessarily hold information about me. Obviously that's not on the blockchain her with the second thing related. This is that we are essentially working in this Gonna roop of of of forward thinking outfits. We are sharing that national Abune associated or possibly definitely associated barco to essentially use that and that alone to identify patients cross different systems right so obviously not practical nor doesn't make sense at one gigantic healthcare system right. There are all separate hybrid. It is practical to have unique. Id that you use identify. A user across different systems and in many ways use that to propel efficiencies rice. So then you know gymnast. There really is. This is number across many different systems whether it is. You know all like built by epic or built by know castle different companies. That's a big big thing again. We can computation improve it. Get anything can also do. We have also done and competition prove. Is this idea that using our mobile app you're essentially the first step before you get triage and essentially diagnose if like online is this questionnaire that you take which we've seen apple and how do people do is typical kind of cdc guideline base questionnaire. You have a fever is so temperatures that how many days have you had it as protocol right now but what is important. What is different. Do permit anybody else. I think. I don't think anybody else is doing this. Is that the those questions And outcomes from them because the guns are really our medical influence. Delete the testing their lead to a telly. How providers speaking to you record every one of those As a as encrypted reference on the public project so again can computational proved that those transactions happen at a time to happen. And here's a legend entry to prove it. So if an auditor said hey Jim core proved that this is real and fake. The data because of your own agenda. We can prove improve. The full data provenance all death and again on a real time. It can report on it. So what the doors already in. Production are being used actively again our clients clients. Use the application of these such as the trusted. If you like transaction the fact that we use blockchain you know have providence really is to me as an abstraction. They don't need to know about that. But if somebody says proves to me have manipulate the data we can route. That's cool and You know the health. Id is an interesting concept that i think would be very useful for us to employ. Now i mean how that happens is a challenge right. I mean what do you think about that. I mean every any closer to getting there. Yeah you know it's interesting right is Obviously this is an issues around for a long time. You know. I think cry. Recall correctly sometime in the fifties that there was an initiative to create a national hall eddie and areas reasons. Most of which was really political and territorial. He did not happen. And of course as time has gone on like you know again you can easily imagine this right so a big vendor and yet your selection of two three monopolistic ones oligopolies. They wanna have their own unique identity and not share right regardless you know. Jam alcl beyond three up at three differences So that has unfortunately gone on at the time annan it has been real kind of financial incentives for them to keep it that way and disincentives for for this kind of interoperability. However i think what we have going fries is really two things right now. This moment one is is that because of kobe and and and and all of the repercussions who we really largely have this ability to use authorization. Push through ideas that perhaps in prior times matt take in years if not decades because up the many kind of contentious factions who deputy involve in really fighting on turks. So i think that's that's a positive if can tap into the emergency use authorization to truly drive. The other thing is. Is that becoming very evident right that we you and this is not just the kobe and for a number of years and that the cures.

Interoperable blockchain enabled technologies for healthcare. Jim is an experienced technology. Executive and software architect building innovative software for healthcare. I'm really excited to talk to you today. Jim about the work. You guys are doing there and share it with our listeners. And so before we go forward with some of the discussion i love. If you could just finish up that intro with any anything that you may wanna share. Beyond what i already have. Yes hi sal. Thanks so much for the invitation. And i appreciate your interest in Really delighted to be on the the the folks that you have spoken. Thank you for that paternity So we're going to wrap up if you like. You're very kind introduction really. I'm a technology professional if you like it kind of architect by profession have been an entrepreneur for longtime as well at my own business for a fourteen years or so and then You know moved on from that This on my own. Thanks for a little while. i was at the centre. Disease control for wireless And helped modernize some of that technology particularly the the scientific application portfolio technology at agency and really as as you kind of rounded it up over less Nine months in Really gonna full-time back at acor Running our software development business and really very much focused on healthcare very much. I guess we're less six seven years being in healthcare. I guess things that i would like to see differently done differently and perhaps valued at. I think we can add collectively that you know. We don't necessarily see so. That's really the motivation. I is like all of us solid personal reasons and personal stories in there that maybe we're the us you know. Motivated into healthcare. Is something not usery. Consider as easy to break into. So you only my case at Personal suggestions particularly my my family. Aware i've seen really hot healthcare's just just really not delivered right news right at you know it really For amount of money that's spent in amount of The percentage of the gross domestic product. That is dedicated to it. Really under deliberation and at the core let's individuals down so all those things of behind my motivations Being the space i man. I think there's an opportunity for technologies like myself to to get aid this and really kind of make a difference in That's what we're trying to do. Wasa jam and yeah you know. There's a lot of money to you know really to get a product that is not the best that it could be and i. I was just talking to a friend this morning and he said that he needed a stress test and that the test is eighteen thousand dollars. I and i'm like man that's like a couple of hours eighteen grand. Oh man and he had a copay of eighteen hundred. he's like man. I don't even think i'm going to do it. And this happens too often where where something is not probably priced the way that it should be. It's overpriced and and And people don't get it because now employers are also offsetting their cost because it's getting Ridiculous so couldn't agree with you more their jam and Appreciate you you Mentioning you're very strong will and your strong purpose for being in the business thank you. Yes an hannah's funny mentioned eighteen thousand dollars. I think for many people deja is they don't even know what the price is in fact even after the events when you come back and see the bill you really cannot explain it. I've been there myself with again with my family where there are bills that literally. Nobody can explain they just you around from one place and other when nobody can explain hotter pricing constructed or what the items really kind of map to a and mrs kind of opaqueness up pricing. Is you know again. You look at almost any industry. Think on earth could industry even remotely in business in this age. Pricing is so kind of a secret damon peg is just like you have to be a member of the luminosity to having about it now. But that's reality. What we deal with you know. Most of us basically are exhausted into submission right because You know we're like it's just not even worth amount of effort because You know you just don't get it consumes so many cycles though you kinda like beaten up so jim yeah i agree and tell me a little about about a core and how the business is adding value to the ecosystem. Yeah sure Think a good job explaining really. What our mission magazine. We're we're here to build modern usable. Essentially real time healthcare technologies. We we have a focus on technologies. That really by enlarged. Like in my mind provide computational proof of transactions writing and hence the blocking labeling. But i think you know again. I think it's important for us to not get sidetracked by blockchain or any other kind of exotic technology per se. Because they're really just able only blocked jamie in many ways. Infrastructure is You know what. Smtp is to email as example so like twenty years ago back in the early you know kind of days of internet. I've been talking about things like these are underlying protocols. So that's kind of if you like a kind of a car. Larry ware blog. Chamier's this as a underlying protocol for trust trust so but oldest adding bid the real application. They're all value is can you especially in a world where we all know again. Unfortunately it's very evident right now with with this Kobe nineteen kind of pandemic. They're going through win a world where data and suddenly healthcare data is. You know he can't necessarily trust it right. He can't trust this Origins you can actually trust stopping manipulated. Not dimension has he gets relayed through various channels and social media. Whatever holiday additional you know coach fake. You know imports and agendas that are of attaches things so our thinking is we can do better right and we can make health data much more accountable and we can prove it and prove it aside up like jim or acor in one entity so so you could use a public ledger. If you wanted to and just verified for yourself he could have this global infrastructure that they can use in real. Time to prove provenance information. That you know the information you're looking at at least can be trusted in the sense that it wasn't manipulated along the way. So that's that's fundamentally what we're trying to do you know. Obviously we have some applications that go one level higher from this isn't for instance provide real time visualization of data all ethics. And things. like this but to me really. The core concept is. Can you actually trust that data. I can't then insides machine. Learning whatever you get from it is going to be suspect. Yeah no i. I think that's a good call out and put a what do we do. You got that bill and you didn't know would it. Would it even meant. I've been there too. I i've gotten a bill from you. Know my son got a little his. He fell in opened up. And then get stitches. And this and that and i mc.

The Future of X
How Ethical Food Choices Shape Our Options
"Animal rights activism heated up in the nineteen sixties and. It remains a hot topic when it comes to food ethics but questions about how livestock are treated and slaughtered have been around since the beginning of time. So do we ever have the right to take an animal's life. I actually cringe every time. I hear someone says. What's the protein choice for today. You mean what animal are. We going to kill an today. That's nasr dory executive director of the national family farm coalition. Our food system has led us down this really ugly dark alley where we don't care if the pigs are terrified entering Slaughterhouse and treated in such ways when they're alive that we wouldn't want any living being to be treated niyada's far from alone scholars like andrew signal. Tackle the issue in the classroom. He's a professor of philosophy and religion at princeton. an editor of the book. Philosophy comes to dinner arguments about the ethics of eating andrew identifies as a flexible vegan. It was the ethical treatment of animals that led him to believe he could be happy eating meat on occasion. I tend to be mostly vegan or plant forward. As i said but i've even encountered farms up in new jersey where the animals are treated better than i have ever seen. No the bulls do have the summer of love followed by a one very bad day at the slaughterhouse. But you know we all have won at least one very bad day facing us at the end of our lives so i can't we all eat. Animals that are treated humanely simply put. It is expensive. Happy cows and pigs cost more than factory farm meat. Not everyone can afford to consider ethics when it comes to filling their shopping carts or their plates. This has ethical implications if we are having some limitations based on where we live our zip code. Color of our skin are income level. Our class right there were hitting at the heart of what is unethical

NASA's 'Hedgehog' Robots Hop, Tumble in Microgravity
"Comets asteroids and hedgehogs these spiky little robots are perfect. Fit for low gravity exploration. This is innovation now exploring comets. Asteroids and small moons can be a difficult task. So what kind of design could be used for exploration a joint team. From nasr's jet propulsion laboratory stanford university and mit believe that hedgehogs are the answer. Let's hear more from. Ben hoffman a graduate student at stanford university working on the project. We've done a lot of modeling with various different types of analytical numerical models. And we've learned a lot the hop angle is more a function of the shape of the rover. So with this type of impulsive. Breaking cubic shape provides a nice forty five degree hop on average. The team is experimenting with fly. Wheels and friction belts to create the momentum that allow the hedgehogs to hop or spin across the surface. We took this prototype down to houston and flew on the vomit comet for two hundred. And if you guys aren't familiar with that it provides about twenty second windows a relative weightlessness. So in each of these twenty seconds we were able to test maneuver so far. The prototypes funded through. Nasr's innovative advanced concepts program are just what the engineers order
InSAR: Tracking Natural Disasters Through Technology
"Researchers supported by nasr's applied sciences disasters program us satellites and space to gauge damage that natural hazards such as hurricanes and earthquakes. 'cause on earth one such satellite-based technology is called interferon metric synthetic aperture radar or in sar in sar can reveal surface movements down to a few millimeters even across an area hundreds of kilometers wide sang. Ho yun a geophysicist at nasa jet propulsion laboratory notes that the technology brings other advantages. Sar doesn't need daylight. We can see things ban night. Also we can see through clouds. We can see through rain. We can see through wildfire smoke and we can see through volcanic plume and other researchers at nasa us inside data to create maps. That show likely damage to buildings and infrastructure in the wake of disasters. The maps help responders and relief workers make better informed decisions and speed recovery
NASA's Orion Space Suit Equipped to Expect the Unexpected on Artemis Missions
"Nasr's orion spacecraft takes off astronauts inside will be wearing new improved high tech spacesuits. This is innovation now bringing you stories behind ideas that shave our future at several points. During artemis missions astronauts will wear a bright orange spacesuit called the orion crew survival system suit the suits have been re engineered to improve safety and range of motion and will be custom fit to each crewmember. Here's dustin gohmert project. Manager for nasr's orion crew survival systems these updated spacesuits contain a fire resistant outer layer and stronger zippers and restraints that allow crew members to up quickly and stay at pressure longer. Well a lighter stronger helmet will improve comfort and communications updated. Gloves and boots will be provided. These suits can even keep astronauts alive for up to six days if orion was to lose cabin pressure. They're also equipped with a suite of survival gear. That could be used if necessary after the astronauts return to earth and splashed down in the ocean. astronauts will wear the suit on launch day in emergency situations during high risk parts of missions near the moon and during the high speed return

Aladdin 2019 Review
"Nasr you're new to the show. But i'm gonna put you right in the white hot spotlight of telling our audience. All of our fresh is out there. What is allowed in two thousand and nineteen about so twenty nineteen version of aladdin. A street thiefs named aladdin. He meets this beautiful young girl. Who in reality is the gorgeous princess jasmine but he doesn't know it at the time he sort of becomes desperate to win her heart and fall in love with her and while he's sort of on that quest he comes across a lamp and genie and he becomes really close friends that this powerful genie and both of them soon find out that. The evil sorcerer. Jaffar is also wanting this lamp so that he can take over the kingdom and like neighboring towns. I think that's the best way. I can describe. Obviously so much amazing stuff happens in between. But i think that's sort of the the meat and potatoes of live action latin.
NASA: Growing Plants in Space
"Before astronauts took the first historic bite of lettuce in space every piece of equipment needed to grow that lettuce was tested in a lab at nasa innovation. Now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shaped the space crop. Production lab at nasr's kennedy. Space center is a web of research labs equipped with plant growth chambers of all sizes designed to simulate conditions on the international space station in these labs teams of researchers apply chemistry biology microbiology and engineering to find the best ways to make plants grow in space the passive poorest plant nutrient system is one of the latest food production technologies developed in the nasa lab. This system uses a ceramic poorest tube and water nutrient bags connected in a loop to feed plants nutrients are pumped in through a combination of capillary force and the same evapotranspiration process that moves water in plants on earth with no moving parts and requiring no electricity. The apparatus is simple to assemble and fully autonomous minimizing. The amount of time astronaut farmers would need to spend tending their

No Shrooms on Mars, Just Misinformation
"Yesterday. there was a bit of excitement online about a new paper. Claiming fun guy had been found growing on the surface of mars. The news really made the rounds buoy. Perhaps by reddit co founder. Alexis hannigan tweeting out one of the articles on it and tagging elon. Musk sane quote just think hashtag space shrooms are gonna be intense af and quotes but sadly the whole thing was a bunch of crap. Basically just the latest in a long line of one particular hacks attempts to get his pseudoscience hogwash published in legitimate journals so the claim that was actually published in the journal advances in microbiology and included co-authors from harvard smithsonian center for astrophysics george mason university and other institutions. That should know better. Was that images taken by. Nasr's rovers on mars as well as its reconnaissance. Orbiter high-rise camera show several fungus like organisms. And that they believe the images show fungus because quoting the paper. Fungi thrive in radiation intense environments and quotes and quoting from future ism. The team went so far. As to say that black fungi. Bacteria like specimens also appeared atop the rovers. They didn't stop there. The team also examined photos taken by nasa's high rise and found evidence for amorphous specimens within a crevice that change shape and location than disappeared. It is well established that a variety of terrestrial organisms survive. Mars like conditions. The team concludes given the likelihood earth has been seeding mars with life and life has been repeatedly transferred between worlds. It would be surprising if there was no life on mars. The team argues that these martian life forms would have evolved on an already be adapted to the low temperatures intermittent availability of water. Low amounts of free oxygen and high levels of radiation and quotes.
