"It was this real moment of like, what is this company that hasn't sold anything? It doesn't have any revenue, hasn't started manufacturing anything. And why is it worth more than Ford, which sells millions and millions of cars a year? It's almost like an Icarus moment where Nikola announces that it has a deal with General Motors, the biggest automaker in America, to make the badger. And then two days later, a report by a short selling firm called Hindenburg research comes out. Nicola shares are tumbling after a short seller called the company quote an intricate fraud built on dozens of lies. You know, they ran the gamut from the stuff about the truck reveal back in 2016 to Trevor Milton saying that the Nikola headquarters was covered in solar panels and they look on Google Earth and they say you know it is not. So it's just this range of misrepresentations that they publish and within a couple of days it was reported that the SEC was looking into that. And then it was quickly reported that the Department of Justice was looking into them. So it seemed like there was really some smoke here from a regulatory perspective. And then there started being issues with the underlying business. GM pulled back from its deal. And then about a week or so after the report came out, Trevor Milton stepped down as the executive chairman of Nikola, which again was kind of this like, oh, okay. Something happened here, right? Like people don't just step down from the company that they built. If there's nothing to the allegations. And then it turned out to be a pretty serious criminal investigation into Trevor Milton. The founder and former executive chair of Nikola is now on trial in New York. He's charged with lying about the company's products to mislead investors and prop up the stock. Trevor pleaded not guilty and hired quite a powerful defense team to represent him that included Brad Bondi, who has previously represented Elon Musk and some of his securities litigation, and he also had Mark mukashi, who represented former president Donald Trump as well as Eddie Gallagher, the navy seal who was acquitted of war crimes. So Trevor pleads not guilty, hires a big old fancy legal team, what do they say he was up to when he lied about solar panels on the roof of his factory and rolled a truck down a hill? Yeah, so they didn't touch the solar panels. It was an interesting defense in some ways. The argument about rolling the truck down the hill and showing off the truck and the truck without the fuel cell in it was actually that it was irrelevant. It was before Nikola was a publicly traded company. Nobody bought and sold stock four years prior based on this event, or these videos, and then the other defense was really that Trevor was talking about the business plan. They actually made the argument in closing that. This was a case of somebody being prosecuted for not being careful about what tense they were speaking in. Saying things in present tense that should have maybe been in future tense. And how does that go for them? Did not ultimately sway the jury. Trevor was convicted of one of the counts of securities fraud and acquitted of the other and then was convicted on both counts of wire fraud. The company has caught all ties with Milton, but the damage is done after reaching that high of more than $80 a share back in June. Nicolas shares closed at $3 and change on Friday, Milton now facing a sentence of more than 20 years in prison. I think Nikola tells us this is not easy, making cars and making tracks has never been easy. It's an incredibly expensive endeavor in proposition. And the seductiveness of these new startups that we're scrappy and lean and had unconventional backgrounds of founders and things like that. They were not able to emulate Tesla in the ways that mattered or have not yet been and Tesla's success is pretty idiosyncratic. And not easily emulated. And I think that's one of the big lessons here. And I think the other thing too is that all of those legacy companies, those older companies, they've caught up, you know, they're spending billions and billions and billions of dollars on EVs. Ben foldy, Wall Street Journal, he's got a whole dang podcast about Trevor Milton and Nikola, it's called bad bets. It's season two of that show. Even without the fraud, getting electric vehicles to market is proving harder than everyone thought,

"Member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. Often part of the LDS experience is doing mission. Those type of mission trips end up making very, very good salespeople. And so there's all these businesses around Utah that kind of try to take in the former missionaries because they're used to rejection and as one of my sources in Utah put it if you can sell God, you can sell anything. And so what does he do? What does he sell the world? He did it. Sometimes through brazen and ambitious misrepresentations. The first time that he shows a Nikola truck to the world, he says it's fully functioning. He says it's chained off so that nobody can get in and drive it into the crowd. It's a little expensive, okay? You could probably buy a jet with what it costs to build this thing. So we're going to try to keep people from driving off. But this thing fully functions and works, which is really incredible. You know, this wasn't known at the time, but it came out later that truck had never drive. It wasn't finished. It had hydrogen painted on its side, but had no hydrogen parts. There was no hydrogen fuel cell in it. So these really core critical systems of the truck were not done. Over a year later, when Nikola, the company put out this video of the truck driving, the tweet said the Nikola one in motion and it turns out that what they did was tow it to the top of a hill and let it roll down and use angles and drone shots to make it look as if it's driving at high speed. The most state of the art truck ever built. The history history in history. What? So, you know, I would say the salesmanship ran ahead of the fact, but the fact was always kind of running along behind it, trying to keep up. But then it kind of spins a little bit out of control. The company signs a deal to go public in the first half of 2020. You know, it hasn't sold a truck, doesn't have a truck to sell. Yet. It says it has billions of dollars in pre orders, but none of them are binding. And Trevor takes to social media to talk about the company a lot. It's so fun to be able to change the world, get rid of the missions, and actually build the truck that can outperform a gasoline version because you can't force people into electrification. You need to build better products that are actually better than the gas versions. And that's what we've done with the Nikola badger. And the things that he started saying about the company are less and less tethered to the core business of Nikola and one of the things that Nicholas starts focusing on is a pickup truck called the badger because Tesla came out and showed off the CyberTruck and people thought it was ugly and people responded well when Trevor tweeted about what it could look like. One of the cool things is you can literally drink the water right out of it. So what we do is from all the hydrogen that comes out of the vehicle, the byproduct just water, we take that water, we clean it, we put it into the windshield washer fluid, all the excess is cleaned and sent to a chiller. So you can have ice cold clean water as you're driving down the road. And Nikola stock goes ballistic. Nicola, that stock is up since look at that. 88 percent since going public just last week. Now that is a rally and a half. At its peak, the stock price was so high that it made the company more valuable than Ford

"You've heard of Tesla, but how about Nikola? Turns out there's not one, but two electric car companies named after the legendary inventor, and the founder of the other one just got convicted of fraud. Trevor Milton, the 40 year old founder of electric truck manufacturer Nikola, convicted by a federal jury Friday of one count of securities fraud and two counts of wire fraud. I know this is confusing because the Tesla guy is also borderline committing fraud online all the time. A top priority I have I would have is eliminating the spam and scam bots. And the bot armies that are on Twitter. But stick with me here, the founder of Nikola was just convicted by a federal jury of fraud bragging about technology he didn't possess to boost the stock value of his company, the stories kind of bananas, and reminds us how much work remains to realize Joe Biden's all electric dream. That's momentarily on today explained. Cover story from New York magazine is back. I'm Hannah Rosen, host of season two, seed money. This season, we have a story about a billionaire and ex spy, many, many women. Almost like he's using all the women as a startup company. And so, so many lies. If I can't stop him, I don't think anybody will be able to stop him. Cover story, season two, seed money, coming October 25th. Here the trailer and follow us, wherever you listen to podcasts. Taylor Swift is releasing her tenth album this week. And it will most likely be a hit. Like everything she's ever done. I'm never gonna call her avant garde, but she's far more innovative than most people give her credit for. And I think she will go down as one of the greats inarguably. But this is a good time to assess her career and legacy. The meaning of Taylor Swift this week on Intuit, vultures, culture podcast. What do you think today explain this? I don't know. Sean ramus from here with Ben foldy from The Wall Street Journal, who used to write about cars, but now writes about financial crimes, which sort of makes him the perfect person to tell you about Nikola. Yes, Nicola, the first name of Nikola Tesla, the Croatian, I believe, engineer of about a century ago. Was conducting the electricity. Our bodies, mister angio, quite capable of conducting and indeed producing energy. So in the summer spring of 2020, there were what I would maybe call the second generation of electric vehicle companies. So the first generation of startups was Tesla, another company called fisker. Nobody. Biscuits don't make noise when they start up. Just so you know. Fiscal automotive didn't survive went bust. And Tesla obviously kind of survived took off thrived eventually. And became the most valuable car company in the world in 2020. I don't want to give the impression that I thought Tesla would be successful from the beginning. I actually thought we would fail. You did. Really, yeah, I thought it would maybe have a ten, 20% chance of success. I mean, it's sort of some general fail, and auto startups, especially failed. And then you have the second generation of new startups. Rivian is among the most serious competitors lining up to take on Tesla. Lucid motors. It is announced that it received a $1 billion investment from the Saudi investment fund, the second EV company electric last mile will begin trading today at the NASDAQ, but and so most of those companies started going public around 2020, Nikola was the first of those. It was the poster child of the exuberance for this kind of second generation of startups. And for people who maybe thought they missed the boat on Tesla stock, it was kind of there was this moment in the summer of 2020 where it seemed like, oh, well, you might have missed the boat on Tesla, but look at all these other new EV companies that can take these huge market shares and become as valuable as Tesla. We can all agree that whether it is a commercial vehicle, an SUV, a sports car, whatever, chances are, within the next decade, they're all going to be electric. And it's a big market opportunity. And Nikola was the first of those to go public and it was also the first to kind of fall apart. Where does Nikola's story start? Quite literally, it starts in Utah. Founder named Trevor Milton decided to name his company Nikola. Like some of the best inventions in the world by coincidence or by having chance. They started in a basement. My basement. And the vision here was that you could have an 18 wheel semi truck that was powered by what's called a hydrogen fuel cell. It's really the only fuel out there doesn't create any emissions or byproducts, incredible. The only byproducts water. So this truck goes down the road. The only thing coming out of this truck will be drips of water. And I think everyone around the world is going to be cheering for that. And this is as opposed to other EV systems which are just chiefly what batteries? Yeah, so when most people talk about electric vehicles, they're talking about battery electric vehicles, which use lithium ion batteries, which are the same thing that you'll find in your laptop, but the issue with that is when you're using them at the level that you need to power a car. They're heavy. And the thing about trucking is that the main prerogative of a trucker is to carry as much weight as possible. And so the more weight you need to have batteries to carry around the weight that you're pulling, the more you're cutting into that weight. Tell me about the guy who was promising this hydrogen fuel cell technology at Nicola. Yeah, so Nikola was founded by a man named Trevor Milton. He's 40 years old. He doesn't have what people might kind of think of. You know, the background of a kind of visionary tech founder might look like. He didn't finish high school. He didn't finish community college. And instead of kind of those types of experiences, he had these kind of successive businesses, but not in businesses that you'd necessarily would think. Lead to hydrogen truck company either. His first was an alarm business like home alarms. Okay. And then he started a company that was like an online marketplace and classified ads, not dissimilar to Craigslist or eBay. And then at the same time, he had this effort to get semi trucks running on natural gas, and that's where he started kind of breaking into that world, but he's not an engineer. He's not a programmer. He's not a hydrogen scientist. He's not any of those things. What he is is a very good salesman. This truck is by far the most state of the art truck ever built in history. Part of it is his background as

"Newspaper reports that electrically dance all about its circumference as the colored lights flicked along the column. The crowd begins to chant at his son at his son. It's incredible experiment that took a young alva- hundreds of tries to get right now stands before the world with hundreds of working edison lights under the general electric banner behind the column is a cavalcade of edison inventions including arena of two thousand five hundred different symbols but the company lighting most of this exposition. Certainly doesn't miss. It's a chance for display on the north side of the exhibit. Just down from the general. Electric banner is an electrified gazebo. The words above it read westinghouse electric and manufacturing company tesla poly face system. Here visitors can see the tesla motors as revolutionizing the industry. Yes nikolas old assistant was able to make it viable for georgia's ac lighting and now serbian engineers invention will truly like the world. Visitors can also see necas. Wireless lights up is the system that he demonstrated at columbia college two years earlier. And though not today nikola himself later put on a presentation at the expo displaying his latest developments in steam engines and oscillators and of course he proves the safety of alternating current allowing it to flow through him well along his skin anyway just as he did at columbia college with no harm done to him and a fantastic glow surrounding person. The audience roars with applause. It's hard to overstate the impact. Thomas alva edison and nikola tesla had on the world while others were working on and thinking about the incandescent bulb. It was alva- who made it work in our homes. He and the boys at menlo park not only figured out working bulb as others. Did they developed it on a whole new level with their central power stations. Meanwhile nikolai did the same. For alternating current just as alvin stood on the shoulders of predecessors and competitors it was the idealist serbian immigrant who invented the motor. That changed the game. So next time you turn on a light in your house. Even if it's an led rather than an incandescent pause and think for a minute. How thomas. edison made that viable for your home pause and think about how the alternating current champion. Nikola tesla enabled the power station supplying your electricity to be built so far away. You don't have to see your here at operate. And i don't mean to take away from the many others who contribute to our modern electric twenty century but truly our world would not be what it is without these two and despite the at times nastiness of the war of the currents let me be clear. The men involved were cordial through much of their lives at one point. The new york times even says of nikolai alva- that quote personally. They are warm friends. Close quote now. That might be a stretch. But there's definitely a sense of admiration and respect between these two. Monique lab burns down in eighteen. Ninety five alva- offered him a place at the edison lap and nika returns the favor after a fire. Alvis place nearly twenty years later beyond the money and mayhem. These two inventors dedicated to lighting. America respected each other and so the war of the electric currents over the electric age has truly gone but as gilded age america continues on its path of accelerated growth and change. You like trinity isn't the only aspect of the nation's economy. That's being radically altered about time for us to meet some of the moon setting america's new gold standard or.

"And intrigue filled with businessmen tycoons and even death will begin by getting some background on the man. We just met. Nikola tesla will follow the recent immigrant as he meets his boss and hero. Alva edison only have falling out from there. We'll see how the interests of george westinghouse and nikola align and how the westinghouse brand of alternating current lighting systems mount a serious challenge to the direct current loving edison brands dominance. We'll follow this. Escalating conflict through accidental and intentional deaths slander in corporate warfare until we find a winner of sorts at the eighteen. Ninety three world's columbian exposition held in chicago illinois. Much to do as always so. Let's head back a few years and meet nikola as he arrives. Starry eyed at new york's port.

The city of richmond is just arriving at new york sport but the pedestal of the future statue of liberty under construction nearby ships. Many european passengers descend gangplank among them as a six foot. Three gangly gentlemen who doesn't even weigh one hundred and forty pounds. His dark sue. Compliments is jet black. Wavy hair and deep set. Gray is at twenty seven years old. This multi-lingual electrical engineer is full of ideas in ambition as his pockets are empty. The some of his physical possessions right now are bundle of clothes his own writings and the four cents in his pocket. Yeah you guessed it. This is the young inventor and electrical genius. Nikola tesla like his fellow. New arrivals are ever serious. Immigrant makes his way to a circular redbrick. Building sign hangs overhead reading emigrant landing depot and office castle garden filled with nerves. Nikola walks through the port with its course of different european languages s. Thousands of immigrants are coming here for their shot at the american dream. Kalis no different soon enough. The linke figure from eastern europe is standing before a us customs officer the official performances duty and asks nikolaou where he's from the immigrant answers by naming the small village the austro-hungarian empire's military province of leaker where he was born on now. Nikola is a gifted linguist. He speaks french. German italian various slavic dialects. And yes even english. But alas his accent's rather thick so the customs officer doesn't right down this croatian village in the balkans instead pins the first european anything he can think of that starts with an ass ends with an in sweden woops and with that nikola is on his way he steps out of castle garden and gets his first taste of the united states or at least of new york city. The smell of the sea quickly turns to that of industrial soot and equine excrement the hustle and bustle of gilded age new york as almost surreal but the near-constant frenetic pace of all sorts of commerce swirling around him mow certainly bumps into people more concerned with their business. Then those around them nikola might hail from a small village but as a man bucking the family tradition of choosing a career in the clergy or the military. This isn't his first time setting foot in a foreign to him big city his studies include time in prague. He worked at a telephone company. Budapest and more recently. He's been in or at least near. The city of lights itself peres working as a junior engineer at the associated understood of the newly established compania continent edison. Yup that edison thomas alva edison or alva- as close friends and family know him has been plenty busy since opening his pearl street station in september eighteen.

He's going after the european market as well to that end all the sent his english right hand. Man charles batchelor aka batch across the atlantic to run things from the paris area in. Wouldn't you know it. Nikola soon found himself in batches employees. During this time the lanky engineer rose early each morning to swim. In paris's sende river then walked his job over in italy seal sin. But don't let those glamorous mornings make you think the eastern european wasn't hard at work nicholas so impressed batch that the bearded englishman often sent him around europe to fix dynamos. That is generators. That had gone awry. Who after nikolai completed one of these difficult fixes in presently german controlled strasbourg that his parisian supervisors concluded he might be better off under the hand of the true electrical master. Alva- edison hence nikolai has made the journey here to nyc determined to meet the man or wizard of menlo park rather behind the curtain. Nikolai even hopes to share a few ideas of his own the day. After arriving in the united states equal makes his way to sixty five fifth avenue. in new york city. He walks up the steps of the four story. Brownstone building who sign proudly proclaims. The edison electric light company wants inside. Nikolai looks around taking into luxurious furnishings. Of the edison electric headquarters. The whole of.

Well played the upper floors offer. Temporary lodging for edison employees as well the school of sorts like company university where newer hires can pick up the basics of electricity's. Anyhow enough on the building it's time for one of nikolai's greatest dreams to come true meeting the wizard of menlo park himself. Thomas alva edison.

"It's wednesday evening may twentieth 1891. We're in a lecture hall at columbia college in new york city and right this minute. Some of the finest minds in the united states are walking down the halls aisles and filing into their seats the here tonight because the relatively new already prestigious american institute of electrical engineers is hosting promising lecture featuring one of the nation's most esteemed minds in the field. It's the famous inventor and champion of alternating current nikola tesla. It professor offers a brief introduction of nikola. The standing room only crowd. This done the tall thin dark-haired moustachioed speaker in a swallowtail coat takes his place on stage stands behind a wooden desk. Various bulbs tubes and gadgets. Lie on it. Additionally to'sink sheets suspended from the ceiling and roughly fifteen feet apart hang on either side of the electrical genius. It's a curious setup. Surely though mykola will explain what. This is all about the eastern european with excellent though accented english now addresses the crowd in his disarmingly high pitched voice. There is no subject more captivating more worthy of study than nature to understand this great mechanism to discover which forces on active and the laws which govern them is the highest aim of the intellect of man nature has stored up the universe infinite energy com infinite energy in the universe. Indeed nicholas stand by the statement and goes on to explain his desire to tap into this infinite energy but the immigrant continues he will not wax philosophical tonight rather you'll contend himself with explaining and demonstrating one of the most important issues facing the world at present namely the production of a practical and efficient source of light going into professor mode the ingenious serb scratches out formulas on the chalkboard that high frequency alternating current the way forward. That's a claim that his former employer. Thomas alva- edison would certainly reject yet. Nikola argues alternating. Current could cindy electricity hundreds of miles but as intellectual as the audience in this packed lecture hall might be why just tell them about the virtues of alternating current when you can show them nikola flips a switch on his wooden desk. He's just engaged. A motor high frequency alternator and as he does so an arc in sparks. Jump between two poles incredible. But that's nothing. The lincoln venter's just getting started with the lecture halls lights dimmed nikolai now.

Nikola tesla will now send two hundred fifty thousand volts electrcity through his own body with the brass ball in each hand. Nikolai touches. One of the oscillating transformers terminals. He didn't extends his hand or the other terminal of the coil. The crowd is standing as what appears to be lightning courses through him. Well that's the thing despite appearances isn't really going through him. It's traveling along the surface of his body. Nikola is completely unharmed. The lecture or.

And there are a great balance to me and we've created this company now is over ten billion dollars today by the years in in my opinion. I can't tell anyone where it's gonna go. But i believe it will be three to four to five times and that's a great thing about being public is as soon as you start executing your vision just starts starts going crazy and that's where we're at so we let the retail investors.

It's very volatile but they get a ride the ride with us and that's the advantage. It's not just big big humongous funds. Their buying your stock in the upside the the person gets to be part of the nicholas story now. And that's a. That's a brand new model that no one's really done before until now okay. So he's referring to saxon getting the company out early before it has product market fit before it really has customers when it kind of has these fouquet's letters of intent and let us intent are from me are just pieces of paper. They literally are worth the paper. They're printed on which i think. Paper cost a penny as a page or something like that. These days maybe two cents so it's absolutely worthless and this is perfect example of why you are responsible for your investments. You are responsible for doing your diligence because he is telling you in this video. He thinks he can go three or four or five acts and that you get to become along for the ride and that he's doing you a favor and all of that sounds really convincing you.

Charismatic people Serial killers all very charismatic and You know he is basically you know doing a real sell job there on people. Who are he knew. Entrance to the markets and who wanted to participate in their company company which still hasn't earned any revenue from what i understand is trying to distance itself from trevor. Here's the quote from nikola trevor. Milton resigned on september. Twenty twenty twenty and has not been involved the copies operations or communication since that time. Today's government actions are against mr milton individually not against the company. So i guess. They're trying to keep this boat afloat the federal indictment States that melted engaged in a fraudulent to deceive retail investors in his own interest. Which kinda telegraphed on the show.

"Rightful recognition for his inventions helping to furthest liquefy role as a pioneer in electrical engineering. Another one of the especially fascinating inventions. That nikola created was the tesla coil. The tesla coil is in dr that was used to transmit radio signals laying the foundation for wireless technology. Nikola used his tesla coil to study a number of different concepts including electromagnetism wireless power and fluorescence itself when word first bred of nicholas. Ability to harness wireless power. It was met with widespread skepticism. In order to allay suspicions. Nikola demonstrated this technology in front of a crowd at madison square garden. One thing nikola did not do was shy away from his truth. In the early nineteenth century nikola lived in colorado operated out of a lab in colorado springs. This is where many of his controversial in sensational experiments were completed one. Such experiment was with nikola was able to light more than a hundred lamps. Without using a single wire he'd also discovered that the earth resonated at a certain frequency and was the conductor allowing electrical waves to move through very ground. It was also rumored that nikola reported receiving messages from extraterrestrials in colorado nicholas thursday for knowledge for creating the next ingenious invention to improve the quality of life for everyone would lead nikola to his biggest project yet. In the early nineteenth century.

"And with his sights set on success. Nikola decided it was time to expand his horizons in eighteen. Eighty four nikola left europe to travel to the united states. Nikola arrived in america with no money in no established identity but he did carry with him a letter. Nikola carried a letter addressed to thomas edison. That he had written to introduce himself and his background. Think of it like being bold enough to hand the c o of your company your resume and cover letter when you arrive for an interview. Confident doesn't really seem to cover it at this time. Edison was a formidable name in the electrical engineering industry quickly. Rising in the ranks to become a household name. Nikola arrived in. Dc met. Edison and was quickly hired. Edison could easily see the untapped genius and incredible brilliance. That was nikola tesla for someone. Like edison nicholas dedication to innovation and improvement. Were priceless to his business. In comparing the countenance of the two men edison was described as more shrewd in business centric while nikola focused on development living more unconventionally without care for public opinion. Nikola was an individual who believed in things like alien spirituality be esoteric and abstract. Edison couldn't have been more the opposite although the pair initially worked well together as is the case when two people connect on a common goal there different strategies and opinions created a large rift between the two businessmen. Nikola worked hard on improving edison's inventions but once nickel began to assert his own ideas. The pair quickly parted ways. Nikola began to focus his energy on creating his own space and laboratory to build his designs. This proved to be a problematic point for nikola as this required him to secure funding for his work. Nikola eventually secured funding for his company. Called be tesla electric light company in eighteen. Eighty five just one year after arriving in america. Unfortunately this is where we. I begin to see how nikolas lack of business acumen works against him. His investors eventually forced nikola out of the deal and he had to pick up work as a laborer in order to make ends meet thankfully. This was a short transition period for nikola just a couple years later he would receive additional funding for his tesla electric company. Why i love nicholas story. Is that a lot of people. Don't know the scope of just how many inventions that nikola created in contributed to that. We still use today. The issue being is that a lot of nicholas inventions while he was the actual designer and inventor. Were not credits him..

"Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds in today's episode. I'll be telling you all the story about an incredible figure. Someone who set the bar for invention and innovation. This individual was not born for the beaten path very much to the contrary they forge an entirely new way for humanity to live a brilliant mind who lived their own truth although often rejected and misunderstood by society as a whole this individual balanced reality science and the metaphysical incorporating all aspects with an understanding into spirituality that was unheard of in that time period and of course one of my all time favorites people. And if you've been listening to this season so far. I'm sure you're notice a theme here. So the genius the accenture the ever thorough. Nikola tesla. so let's get right into it. Nikola tesla was born on july tenth. Eighteen fifty six in. What is now croatia. Nikola was born to a family of serbian descent. With four other siblings nicholas father was an orthodox priest who longed for nikola to follow his footsteps into priesthood nicholas. Mother raised the children as well as had her own electrical engineering projects that helped contribute to improving the quality of life for everyone in the household. It said that nikolas mother was the first one to inspire him to pursue his own path into inventing. As nikola grew up he would described as having an out of this world imagination and a sense of individual creativity that was beyond just regular passion with his mother's examples set early on nikola decided to become an engineer. He started his higher education and attended a series of technical and engineering schools in germany austria including the polytechnic institute as well as the university of prague while going to school in austria nikola was first exposed to a generator. Called the graham dynamo which when reversed could also be used as an electric motor. When nikola worked with the graham dynamo the idea alternating current began to blossom and take root in his mind's eye after attending school. Nikola moved to budapest to work for the central telephone exchange. In the short time and nicholas early adulthood he pursued his interest earnestly this passion would be important defining factor as he was about to enter one of the most fierce fights of his life as he was exploring budapest. Nikola began work on developing his vision of an induction motor predicated on the principle of the rotating magnetic field. This would become the first step for nikola in utilizing his alternating current design. Now we're about to enter the beginning of a showdown of epic proportions. After leaving budapest's nikola traveled to paris to work for the continental edison company in eighteen. Eighty two in eighteen eighty three. Nikola created his first working induction motor. Unfortunately as with most new inventions. It was difficult for nikola to garner interest after spending years traveling across europe searching for support.

More data will improve a good model ready capable of supporting something basic and maybe it's fully learned. Maybe it's not in the case of something like this. It won't be fully alert. And you know i think one of our key. The french heaters is that we build the version ourselves. Synthesizing the amount of data. We need to get it off the ground and then we improve your data but like that thing around like how much data you need. Think it keeps a lot of people away from the point.

You need a lot of data and then the smart thing about a lot of deep learning water breaks was there is to get the pre-training right where you take a mountain of data that not directly applicable and you turn it into useful data for getting them on the ground certainly certainly technical challenges there and being able to have that transfer ability across industries. Certainly isn't something you know. Code with python wise I would have a lot of expertise about. But i do know for a fact. That ain't easy. I've talked to a lot of people in this face in this just far from simple to be able to have that kind of transfer ability eventually stuff becomes more and more than north and as you mentioned.

"Of those teams is eliminate adam. Silver would never. Yeah die. I there is something to be said for that. Ah i'm a little bit scared. But if denver was against dallas and you have nicole yokich versus luka doncic. Both unstoppable offense players. I still think the denver matches better with luca than dallas matches up with nicola. And that's because you have aaron gordon you have. Pj dosier you have michael porter and you have will barton and you can be a little bit more switchable with those guys on the wing then you would have been in the past when denver last played them. They didn't have aaron gordon in their previous match against dallas. Michael porter sat out at least one of those games Douses a good team and lucas. An unstoppable offense player. But i just don't trust the people around him and i think the denver could win that series. And then you get to the point okay. Who's at the top now. Utah phoenix if one of those teams as the theme that denver faces in the second round. Do you really think that it's impossible. Denver couldn't win one of those series. Because i don't i think they could absolutely one of those series because they have the best player and so often that is the that is what matters in a playoff series. And i don't know where this is ultimately going to end up but i tend to think and i tend to trust nicole yokich and i tend to trust joe-marie and i tend to trust michael porter jr. Unfortunately jamal there but trusting. Those guys has has really led me wrong yet. And and i tend to think that those guys just the way that they are wired the way they have fit together and played. Well anything is really possible. So i'm not going to count them out just yet. Yeah i I fully concur with that. I think Just like you mentioned. I i really honed in on on the nuggets. Post jamal Just to get a read of where the team was at and where they were headed in It just hasn't felt like i mean i've seen teams have injuries. And they go on a mini run but it feels more like there are. They're trying to overcompensate and Keep going what they had and the team is just like. We talked about the defense at the beginning. They somehow on the flour it will the change up their identity in a way and it doesn't feel fake to me so i you know i'm not going to place bets or anything actually i. I told france tonight that they should bet on the atlanta indiana game and i think some of them lost money because of this swyto bed but point being i i agree..
