"Which has as its responsibility biodefense failed. Why did CDC not have anything like enough testing capacity even in March and those are really not questions that I think can be addressed to president trump? Yes sure the buck stops with the president but let's face it in a thing. As large and complex is the federal government there is ultimately such thing as departmental responsibility. And it's the the failure of the bureaucracy that to me. Is the really striking feature here in just the same way that you can't say? Britain had a very bad pandemic because Boris Johnson's a populist. The that's not the right way of thinking about it. There were lots of people including eminent epidemiologists own the government payroll whose job it was to say. This is a dangerous a new outbreak. We need to act rapidly and instead I think what happened with the experts on both sides of the Atlantic were prepared for another influenza pandemic. Remember we'd had one in two thousand nine so called swine flu and it hadn't killed many people that had been very contagious. And I think the experts was source of waiting for the next influenza and they hadn't learned the lessons of SARS Mars in the hadn't understood that Karuna vars could actually be far more disruptive than than the new strain of influenza So what is our world going to look like say two years hence? Nehal may be win. This thing started to wind down Are we going to get a vaccine and it's in the rear view mirror and what are the permanent implications will as an historian? I know that this one past We can argue about it but as only the one but there are multiple plausible futures. And I'll give you a couple in the nice future vaccine is found relatively soon. There are seventeen maybe a hundred different efforts underway to find one and no experts on virology. It seems the. There's a reasonable chance of success. But that's just stress reasonable chance not certainty but let's let's look at a nice future where this happens. Somebody has a breakthrough and then in the course of of next year this vaccine becomes widely available. Maybe also there are some therapies The come Online the said the out people who get get sake and let's add some more good news. It turns out that as we initially thought. The people who are most at risk of the elderly in doesn't really hall young people even if they get it So let's assume that kind of good news happens an. Let's also assume that people on hearing that good news say few Panico the we can start getting back to our normal lives except maybe figure granddad and so we we get kind of v-shaped recovery as people not to go back to work but they start going back to consuming and that scenario By this time next year we won't be probably over this but we'll certainly feel that the end is near and that we won't be Dealing with many of the problems that we've been through in twenty twenty two by that time the vaccine will be widely available. So that's future one. The Nice future future too is a is also important to consider because first of all we might not get a vaccine. There's no vaccine for.

"What about close? What about toys? What about all these different categories? What kept hearing over and over again from our customer? was that again. You know this pain point of the right babe the right Sippy Cup. That was the ultimate frustration and moment moment of anxiety. Very early on in my baby's life but now that my baby as you know six nine twelve months. What's the most frustrating is that my kids are outgrowing? Their closer sir. Outgrowing them with extreme frequency the volume for which I have to replace is tremendous and I spend way too much time finding cute stuff that is inexpensive eh. And that was the moment where we really saw this. Bigger Opportunity It was something that I was personally experiencing with my kids as well but it was a really scary pivotal moment Both as a leader as well as for the business because it really force us to make a big move. So what did the investors Sadie you when you go to them and say I know you were betting on us for this but now we're going to give it to this other thing. Oh and by by the way it will in some ways compete with Amazon. You know I would say. In general my investors were incredibly supportive And I think that that is the benefit of early stage. Investors Piercing Green from forerunner is A longtime investor and friend and adviser and mentor and and she was my first investor. Ever and you know what she said to me what she said. I invest in people and I invest in the people that I want to be in business with and and if it's not the business that I invested in then that's okay because I invested in you and that you know that was like one of those as long as you're you're like crying hysterically she's saying that to you and you're like Oh my God I don't WanNa let you down and you're like are you sure you want you invested in me. You know. But that's the moment that you know definitely gave me a much more visibility to the early stage venture landscape. I don't think I ever really understood that. That's how early stage investors think about businesses but it also gave me such tremendous freedom And really you know the power to be able to hugh chart the course for the business that I felt was best for Everybody involved customers employees investors myself once you pivoted and said okay stake in the ground. We're now rockets of awesome. We're in the clothing business for children. How long was it? It between knowing that's what you wanted the business to be and the business actually looking that way it was about. WHO's about twelve months twelve months and what was the biggest ono moment in those twelve months or just be on them? Once rockets of awesome gets off the ground. Oh I think I think the first moment that was really difficult was telling my team because I had a tiny team. I think that I was so concerned with sort. Sort of like shielding them or protecting them not wanting them to be scared or nervous wanting them to think that you know their leader was taking care of it not wanting to lose them because 'cause they valued them so much that that was the first hurdle was telling them and making sure that You know I was able to maintain the trust and the credibility but also that I I can motivate them to come along for the ride. I think the second was when I the first person that I hired. For rockets of awesome was a apparel designer. You know we were working working out of working of were be actually at the time. So Neil mic guys had so generously given us of a row of desks within their massive office ex perk burke it was amazing Park and you know free office and free snacks. I remember the designer coming to me and saying Oh so I'm GonNa need a bunch of foam boards for the inspiration inspiration for the collection and as we start design will start putting up on the board so I ordered her phone boards and they arrived and they were you know. I don't know thirty six between the kind of thing and using your science fair exactly junior high exactly and she was like so. I'm going to need much larger foam boards. I'm GonNa need you know basically like eight feet by four feet and I'm going to need fifteen of them and it was in that moment where I was like. Oh my God I really have. I really are so so far from understanding how this process works and it's funny because having a jewelry company before knowing how the manufacturing process works is knowing how that's out of design works. I think I had more confidence than maybe I should have So that was sort of that moment of just the the steepest learning curve could ever imagine and one that was scary and you know I second and third guests myself along the way way But always sort of had a very very strong perspective of what this brand was going to be and how it was going to serve customers and in every moment of self Dow would try to convince myself that I should listen to my God and follow my vision great. So now you've raised in this most recent round. You just closed a series C I think for nineteen and a half million dollars. What's the biggest challenge right now about fundraising Oh God so it was being a woman? I was pregnant fundraising so Being a soon to be well I was a mom. uh-huh okay I was a woman I was a mom. I was pregnant mom so soon to be a mom of two and I was the wife of someone who was building a successful business us and so the combination of those things people would say to me things like well. How much time do you spend on this suggesting that it was a hobby? Ah or you know. We'll we'll how do you balance at all or Y You know what what's your plan. They would like look at my stomach and you. You know all of these sort of questions such as just that you know. It wasn't committed to this. I wasn't taking it seriously. I wasn't going to be as successful. As as you know a guy could be and and that was really challenging the best was that it was really motivating like to me that is like fire under my ass because I'm like Oh you don't believe I can do this. Well screw you. I'm GONNA show you you know and so for me. I was like the ultimate fire but I think in those moments when it would happen when I was a little bit deer in headlights because I was like oh this thing that everybody talks about. It's happening to me right now and I wanNA make sure that the way I react in this moment is pivotal moment and of my career is going to be representative of something that I'm really proud of. And how did you react when people said those things to you in meetings. I would take a really long awkward pause just to see how awkward I can make them feel and then I would say something either to the effect of of what do you mean and I really wanted them to rephrase the question and think about how stupid their question was and make them feel really uncomfortable or if they knew Nehal we all I would say well exactly the way neal does just very matter of factly and kind of shut it down Because you know what I wanted them to no was that this line of questioning is total. B Us It's so unprofessional. And this isn't sort of the world that I mentioned playing in and this is the type of leader that I am nor somebody that I want to engage with and just hoping in that moment that I could take the high road but also make them feel a little all smaller While making them feel awkward definitely awkward. But I think that's a good idea for people just generally Because you get approached with all different kinds of questions in your career and I think it's a good idea to be quiet for a minute. Just let that at simmer for a second exactly Tim. Sit with that for a minute. That's wise did someone teach you that or did you just kind of instinctually think of that. I it just sort of naturally happened and then after he did it the first time and it worked really well then that was sort of my ammo after. How do you think about Amazon now? Because you go back to the beginning of your story and you. You didn't want to be competing with Amazon. And you didn't really want to own inventory and here you. Are you own inventory. Three and Amazon. If you're in retail Amazon is a factor whether or not it's a giant factor it exists Amazon's a huge factor and. I think that it would be naive to say that. They don't matter Because they absolutely do matter I think I think they have fact everything from customer. Acquisition costs to You know your ability to grow and you know we've always really grounded this business in a really really strong brand and brand to me is the greatest value that you can build for Your Business. It's why somebody chooses one mattress over another razor over another you know. It's the reason that people really align their values and their interests with a certain company so the brand was critically important to me in the belief that if we create a brand and our customers aligned with those values than We will be able to build old that trust in that loyalty and that longevity You know it's funny. I go back and forth on Amazon. You know sometime like God like should we get in bed with the devil and then and I say God no because you know that that opens up a whole other can of worms and I think the answer is that I don't know the answer. I think that I'm always having conversations and exploring What different opportunities are I? I don't know it's hard. You know. I think that customers are really looking for magical customer experiences and in some ways you could say that Amazon is far from that and other ways you could say no the fact that they you know make it easy and they deliver it in two days. That's that's magical so I think you know it's sort of a double ledge sword and I don't have a great answer for because I really personally struggling and I think internally we struggle on on what that is and so today we really focus on our channels annals and our direct relationship with our customer and how we can make that a specialist possible and and make it so that they feel incredibly connected to the mission and the brand and bill that loyalty so they tell their friends about it. You know you talk about brand. And it's something I know. Neil your husband and in and Worby Parker thought a lot about as well and especially now when it seems like if you check your instagram feed. It feels like it's easier than never even though that's not realistic. But it feels like it's easier than ever to start a cool company and I'm saying that in quotation marks and it makes me wonder it is like the fact that but it makes me wonder as I look through my instagram. Feed how you maintain that equilibrium equilibrium between being cool and interesting.
2019-2020 Premier League Odds: Will Manchester City take the title?
"Twenty thousand nine hundred thousand twenty english premier league is officially underway last year we saw historically close title race liverpool still in pursuit of its first premier league title finished just one point behind repeat pete champions manchester city though the ripple did when the champions league title over my beloved tottenham heading into this new season liverpool and city remained the favorites and we're expecting acting another close fight. Here's steve nicol on e._s._p._n. F._c. making the case for man city but yes city still have a stronger squad in liverpool. You could say that they've actually got strong since last year and considering they won the title this to lose and liverpool's to try and take extra step neil. What does our model say about. The primarily grace is mandy the favorite again they are indeed so we give them a a sixty one percent chance of winning. They are the highest rated team. According to the soccer power index they have the best offense in <hes> the ep l. and also the best defense so all of that kind of adds up to to a shockingly high probability of winning. We really think that there's almost no chance that they finished any lower than third or really. Even i mean second. Can they have a like. I said sixty one percent chance of finishing first and then a twenty four percent chance of finishing second so not much room for anything below that but then you know liverpool is relatively close to them in terms of sti so man city has a ninety four point four s._p. That's on a zero one hundred scale and then liverpool the second best team has a ninety two point four so that's kind of a small gap when you consider that the third team tottenham sarah's team and nominally my team mm-hmm has an s._p._a. Of eighty five point three so massive difference in drop off between number two and number three <hes> but still liverpool has a just a twenty-seven percent chance in our model of of actually winning the e._p._l. What did the first weekend of games or the friendly community shield match up between these teams. It's a week ago. Tell us about what to expect. From this revelry in these opening match ups. I mean it is also sort of an open question as to how much we can learn about single soccer matches and i'm always amazed even when we get into the world cup that first sport was so little scoring that the better team tends to win with a good amount of frequency well we're actually in a talk later in the show in the rabbit hole about baseball upsets <hes> and and it's a game baseball is a game with more scoring than soccer and yet according to all the models and just if you sort of look at the the results of games the favorites favorites and soccer tend to win far more often than they do <hes> in baseball and so. I don't know why that is necessarily. I think there's a lot of things things going on about who is controlling soccer game that are not picked up in the scoreline. Necessarily right and advance stats are trying to do that work work. We talk about possession or you know. Further things like expected goals expected assists progressive passes. All of those things that are happening in a soccer are game that are you know sort of. We don't think about them in terms of the scoreline but they're all helping to tell the story so you know these two teams james city and liverpool are the best of those things too so that probably goes a long way to why we have them rated so highly why soccer power index thanks so much of them and they really are. They're returning their very good teams. From last year with slight tweaks slight improvements that you know should get them pretty far. One would think inc beyond the top two teams. There's an interesting dynamic among what we've typically considered the top tier in the ep all those that have been part of the big six for the past couple of beers and then the middle tier teams so our model which uses that sti showed a big gap going into the season between city and liverpool and chelsea and tottenham him that was a gap of about seven points neil said earlier but then there's another big gap of about five points to that next batch of teams manchester united and arsenal now everton which is often just on the outside looking in at the big six is only one point behind arsenal and all and then lester and wolverhampton just a couple of points further back so the golfs there really are between the top two and everybody else right but then three and four four and then this group that could all compete for for the fifth and sixth spots but also the third and fourth spots so you could see some a real shakeup shakeup in the table for the first time in a while we haven't had anyone outside of the current big six finish among the top six spots since lesser one at all in two thousand sixteen which of course was a shock collar bone. They didn't subtle just getting sex. They were like let's just win at all. This season could be even though i think some people are thinking i would sort of boring in city liverpool same thing. It's just a repeat of last year. There could be some really interesting. Things happen in the world of the top soccer teams. I think that's sorta. Uh shows how amazing it was that lester one in two thousand sixteen everyone points to that five thousand one odds they had which is a little misleading. They've really didn't have a one in five thousand chance of winning in a twenty team league. It was just a terrible line and the terrible line was a reflection of the public opinion as all odds and all lines are a reflection of the public opinion. Don't forget that that that no one else outside of this elite group could win that league so why not make the line five thousand one try to get some people the bed on it and they were burned so in many ways it kept that people on us and of course it's obviously gone back to the same handful of teams winning but just showing that it was possible i think was very big for the sport in terms of giving giving fans hope and giving everyone hope which will all all hopes will be diminished by october but at least right now the dream is alive because the lester her yeah well when you think about the history of the premier league which started with the nine thousand nine hundred ninety three season there have been only six winners. It's man united man city arsenal chelsea leicester blackburn and that's it nobody else in all those years and so and they have not been many teams that have even gone into a season thinking. They had a great chance so lesser winning. I think did a huge thing for the league. Now someone what else needs to actually win again someone different come on spurs. The beauty of it is that there are all these like competitions within the bigger competition trying to make it to the level. Were you qualify for europa. League champions league trying to just stay up in the primary league is is often more exciting later in the year so it isn't isn't just like you know another sport where winning is everything. There's many rewards existing in the league which will sort of add excitement in lieu of the playoffs and realistic chance of actually winning the championship and and <hes> having your hopes of doing that at all dashed. You know extremely early into the season season. He can settle some consolation tournaments. I mean what's wrong with that. I think well this goes to my theory about really all sports. There's no shame in rooting for a team that can't win at all and there are lots of other things along the way that makes sports fun. My college football team is not going to win at all but i'm still gonna enjoy the season and be happy when they knock someone off. Whatever and you are going to watch those five thirty eight. <hes> college football playoff odds like a hawk hawk note to me every single week when they go up or down <hes> not that's connected to that's not connected to an actual belief. They're actually going to make the playoff. It's more like well look. It's my team and they're doing well. They're not gonna win. Percent percent chance of making the playoffs. They were on the list nehal all right. I think we can leave that

I didn't even do any physiology. Probably once a month have a stretch that was it. And I actually kept up that crazy packed the twenty two years. That's insane. Isn't it? Twenty two years, and then it was a couple of days after my thirty four birth diet where I just had this urge that came from. I have no idea that said styles, it's time to get fit and because I've always obeyed healthy, but I was differ feet. And and it was one of those environments where there's a time to question things. And as a time not question things, and I'll tell you what this urge was so strong. Unlike yet, what have you say, okay? What have you say almost three year? What do I do this? But what's really I find? I find amazing is just like constantly my mind is constantly blown by the universe. And how it provides for us. And I found that you know, went you set an intention than it almost conspires to help you make it happen. Obviously, there's a scientific thing with your ridicule activating system that you know, you start to feel shop it it's on your radar. But I had a so that was on my right up trying to get fit. And so a couple. Days often dot Appiani. I had an Email come through for power and pig talent search like shit. That's pretty a pretty good place to go and find something to get fit. All just a bit just a little bit. Just let about kind of a little bit extreme. But it's like, hey. Yeah. That that looks cool. So I registered full that talent search, and I thought gee that. And it was it was a few days before the event that I reread the foam, and it said that we're looking for athletes. So of course, at that moment. I'm like, I'm not enough late never gonna be enough late. So I should go to this thing. Like what a waste of time. That's going to be so talk again. And thankfully, I had my partner at the time. He said, look, I just got you never know what might come of it. So I'm like, okay. But we went, and I felt so old who is like all these school kids and stuff like that. And but again, it's like, you know, if you commit to do something, you know, you show up you give you all. And you do it. One hundred percent. So they had all these different. It was like a massive circuit kind of thing. And they had all these different coaches and sports set up, and they were doing some really basic testing and trials with people just to get a bit of a flavor of sport. And then have a look at us as potential athletes. So I went around, and I tried everything that I could try, and you know, to my complete surprise every coach said, all you could you could pushy this, but still always sort of thinking ONA looking all there might be something he that might be fun to get fit. But I didn't think anything bigger than that. And it wasn't until was a few days off you wakes actually after that. I got a letter in the mile from the Paralympic committee and Ivan that led earn it said that I shied all the physical attributes to pay a potential paralympian if I chose to pursue it. This me unlike shit sich Lee sat there staring at that lead officer long going shit. Like, I just spent. Laws twenty two years, nor even having a crack because I did not think I was good enough.
