Hampton Lintorn Catlin Co-Founder and CEO of Veue, 'It's So Much More Than Gaming'

"I'm curious. What are your ambitions with view view. Sorta it is a live video. Commerce company so sort of focusing on a lot of these companies are doing sort of like. Qvc from home kind of thing. We've actually sort of. It's turned into more of a say in art form so it's a live video platform so think twitch or something like that and trying to make it much more than gaming so you know my my ambition that people can connect around their interests around the world and feel like they are sharing something together even though their remote is the world becomes increasingly separated and i really want to sort of build a positive feeling. Yeah glue is. The word used to bring people together about the things that they love. And so that's what. I'm trying to do with view it's video streaming which is a the wild west to be honest partly cargo cult. I could talk about that for a long time. But on the other side of the product rate video streaming is coming in the maturation business rules around logging in or comments or test. I wanted to to make those as you know. The the risks should be on the things that are different about your business or your technology so obviously the rails app is not handling the video streaming. Because that's not what it's focused on. That's not one of the powers of rails but everything else all the business logic all the rules and moderation and all that all those things you have to build in with the platform. That's that's where. I think rails once again really shines. So what does the tech stack look like. So it's rails for the web sort of layer using stimulus. Which i sort of i've been doing a lot of people react for many years now and decided to give stimulus to try and have definitely more. I've really enjoyed it but it it is. It does have its quirks. I guess would say and you know really what we're trying to do is use. The power of web. Ep is so there's been an this. Were stimulus comes in. One of the strengths is that like react. Tends to have the opinion that it wants to isolate you from the browser as much as possible. Like even when you're writing. Html you're not writing html you're writing a representation of different down that gets you know computed and dipped in kind of trying to isolate you from from the browser. And i think it's interesting about stimulus and specifically take on. This stuff has been. The browser has good stuff in it and he kind of missed that whole train. Which i don't think this really good but coming out the other side like i think these things all come in swings almost like of fads. I usually browser no the browsers. Great come back to it. And i think we're definitely gonna swing back. I think i've been discovering just how much you can do in the browser web amazing audio context and you know even css these days horrible anymore or still a little bit. But you know it's much better than it's been in the past. I think there's just you know just even the video like web. Sorry the power of web components. The video tags and i just indian is filled with so many presents that the w3c's been regular for years and browser vendors have been working on all pretty stable. And if you if you want to target the ninety seven percents browsers that support all these things and you don't care about the three percent as much. There's just so much cool stuff to do there so honestly the stack is rails with post grads pretty straightforward these days. We're using a service called mucks to help with the actual video pipeline itself and then mostly stimulus controllers and a whole lot of cool stuff going in the browser.

How to Control Cravings

"My name is leah. Klein showed i am a registered and licensed dietitian and i have been seeing and helping clients with cravings and with a variety of other issues for the past three and a half years at nutritional weight and wellness so nearly every day i like i mentioned i work with clients who are trying to get their cravings under control because this is really a lot of what drives our food decisions how we think about food some of the emotional choices that we make around food and a lot of my clients come in and they are frustrated they are so done with the sugar cravings and they might say to me i am so done and because i know if i have just one i can't stop with just one and then i know the consequences afterwards. I know that i don't feel good. After i indulge. And i know that that's one of the big reasons why i keep gaining weight. Why can't lose weight. But it is so hard to stop with the cookies and the chocolate's when they are just sitting around so like nicki i have personally experienced some of those cravings in the past. I completely understand where they're coming from. And i tried to relate that to them that we've all been in that boat here's ninety seven percent of us have been in this boat at some point one or another and so how again. How do we build in some of those realistic solutions for each individual. Client to help them. Get off of that cycle. yes exactly. we're real people rightly have really well. Good morning and it's nice to be here with you. Leah i'm nikki doreen. I'm also registered and licensed dietitian. I've been helping clients nutritional weight and wellness for about two. And a half years to as i personally have explained that i have dealt with cravings in my own life. I've also had many experiences in my past work experiences with clients or patients actually at a weight loss. Managment clinic where they did weight loss surgeries so i would help them with their eating prior to surgery and then after surgery but one of the biggest things was they had a lot of cravings. That was a lot of reason why those folks were in my office. When i saw them they gained weight. Because of that. And that's a big concern with a lotta people dealing with cravings Some of my patients had to lose one hundred pounds some two hundred some even upwards of four hundred pounds and so if you think about the impact of having a high sugar diet or high carb diet or being having cravings for sugar that can really affect you And you look for solutions other than food. Sometimes mike weight loss surgery now not all of my patients had issues with cravings but many of them did and i think the big thing is they were looking for that solution of weight loss from the surgery and to help them with their cravings. All of my patients were just like everyone else. They wanted to lose weight to be more active. You know to you know if we ever get snow maybe go out and have you know like go skiing or they wanted to walk around. The lake. Walk their dog longer than just a few minutes. They wanted to get into more stylish clothes. They wanted to fit on an airplane. Someday you know comfortably airplane seat. I heard all of those things. They wanted to be able to play with kids or grandkids. All of those were reasons why they wanted to get rid of their cravings and lose weight. Yeah so nikki thinking back then when you were working in that setting and working with these clients had a lot of way to lose You know and this might be a question. Some of our listeners. Wanna know the answer then to the once they had that surgery so you worked with them pre and post surgery but once they had that surgery did weight loss surgery actually help take away their cravings. Unfortunately no and you know quickly learning from working at that clinic that that was the case. The cravings didn't go away. The hunger didn't necessarily go away if it did. It was for a very short period of time and We need to. And so. I spent a lot of time explaining that yes the surge would help them lose weight but not necessarily help them with the cravings and. I really had wish that. When i worked in that clinic that i wouldn't have i knew more about cravings and that biochemical piece in the brain because i think i could have helped my patients more. Yeah so that's just very interesting to know. And i guess i'm curious to know too with those clients that you saw and if that you know if the weight loss surgery didn't necessarily resolved their cravings but what happened in happen those weight loss surgeries. A lot is now. The stomach and the digestive tract has a lot less acreage to it. Like you can't fit as much food in there as usual so now potentially would you say that. sometimes you saw even if people couldn't necessarily Satisfy those cravings with food. Would you see that translate somewhere else. Definitely yes there was definitely some addictive behaviors. That happened because sugar is an addiction. Sugar cravings are a lot of people. Come into our office. You probably hear this. I'm addicted to sugar aso. How i learned about how to help people with cravings was a real clinical experience. You know my clinical experience from the weight loss surgery know clinic showed me that there was an issue out there but once i worked at nutritional wellness i learned about the how to fix those cravings why those cravings were happening and so it helped me myself and it helps it helps all my clients so you know back to you know my previous patients you know they would lose weight you know the first year or two and then all of a sudden weight would start creeping back you know and a lot of them would gain all their way back or some of them would gain a lot of their way back and some of them would even gain more So it was really you know we never got to the root cause those cravings their food. How do we balance their blood sugars. So they get off that cravings train absolutely. Let's circle back. I know you have a couple more stories that you just want to share from your experiences there but we do have to go to our first break so stay tuned. You're listening to dishing up nutrition brought to you by nutritional weight and wellness and many people are told that how they think determines how well they feel. They're told that positive. Thoughts and affirmations are the answer to overcoming depression and anxiety and yes. It's true that positive thoughts and affirmations really can help change the chemical process to create better attitudes in a better mood overall but researchers have actually found that in these modern times many people lack the essential nutrients for brain wellness that supports their overall sense of wellbeing. So today during our breaks we want to share some of those key nutrients that we all really need to achieve a well functioning brain and we'll be right

How does Puerto Rico become a state?

How does Puerto Rico become a state?

"It's common for people to lump puerto rican statehood and dc statehood in with each other and there are some parallels. Like part of rico. Dc is more populous than the states of vermont and wyoming yet. It enjoys no meaningful representation in congress and like puerto rico. This lack of independence has often put the district at the mercy of petty battles for political clout considered former congressman jason. Chafe it's who was elected to represent district in southeastern utah to the dismay of dc's liberal city council. This conservative politicians spent a significant chunk of two thousand fifteen. Nc thousand sixteen obstructing cities decision to legalise cannabis and to authorize euthanasia in certain circumstances. Schafer's threatened mayor bowser with jail. If she allowed legal marijuana she allowed it. I have a lot of things to do here. In the district of columbia me. Being in jail wouldn't be a good thing. Meanwhile puerto ricans reeling from hurricane. Maria could only watch as senate. Republicans held up the passage of a robust disaster. Eight bill for weeks on top of that. The economic fate of the island hinges on a bankruptcy like process established by congress called presa promise stands for puerto rico oversight management and economic stability act. You'll notice is not a perfect bill in the right direction. Those nielsen bus. Though john this it s mesa people born in puerto. Rico are us citizens receive a social security number at birth and are eligible for an american passport. They can relocate to the continental. Us and work freely the do not have to deal with the barriers that apply to most immigrants and yet their citizenship is conditional. Even if puerto ricans on the island wanted to vote for the president of the united states last november third the constitution forbids it and despite counting three point one million residents. So that's more than the dakotas en vermont combined. Puerto rico is not entitled to voting senators or to a commensurate number of house representatives. And as we get into later in this episode this is far from being the only tangible consequence of the island's status as a territory of the united states which brings us back to the big fundamental question that freeze puerto rico on november third should puerto rico be admitted immediately into the union as a state. Yes or no. On election day. Puerto ricans voted in favor of becoming the fifty first state. The vote was non-binding and would need the approval of congress to push statehood forward Directly voted in in an absolute majority more than fifty two percent to pursue stated that result sets the wheels in motion for the island's governor to appoint a commission which in turn will develop a transition plan for congress and the president's review that same day. These voters also handed a narrow victory to gubernatorial candidate. Pedro pierluisi from the new progressive party. While he's opponent. Carlos delgado favored the status quo. Pierre-louis is one of puerto rico's fiercest advocates for statehood here. He is in february. Two thousand fifteen introducing statehood bill before congress at the time. Pierluigi was puerto rico's resident commissioner. Which is a nonvoting seat in the house of representatives. Bipartisan bill introducing today flows from and builds upon the two thousand twelve referendum and the federal appropriation enacted in response to that referendum. In other words this bill is being filed now because the strategic foundation is firmly in place every action i take is designed to advance the statehood calls because it is beyond dispute that territory star status is the main source of wrinkles grave economic and social problems. There's no question that the united states treatment of puerto rico as a territory of second-class citizens has caused very tangible damage. But what must come next may not be as simple as deciding. Yes or no on statehood as both senator mitch. Mcconnell and governor elect purely suggest in fact november third marked puerto rico's six referendum on the question of statehood previous attempts have been mired in controversy and bigger opposed for example the two thousand seventeen referendum drew a ninety seven percent majority for statehood pretty clear-cut right but actually voter participation was abysmal that year. Thanks to a very effective very organized. Boycott participation was hired as time around but opponents of the referendum have argued that the question was stacked that it may not have been obvious to voters that a no steve hood was in fact a yes on independence or some alternative status opponents say the ladder deserves consideration that distinction between dc and rico matters a great deal. No one is seriously arguing that the nation's capital should become an independent nation. Instead the concerns over self rule truly boil down for dc statehood or no statehood. Not so with purdah rico. And it all comes down to the island's history joining me. Today is in is auto a civil rights lawyer at the center for constitutional rights and the author of. It's time to talk about cuba and puerto rico to an essay published in issue. Twenty seven of current affairs magazine angelo. Welcome to deconstructed high grabbing to understand. Why puerto rico faces a much more complicated question than statehood or no steve hood. I think it's important to grapple a bit with its relationship with the rest of the country in your recent essay. You argue that. Puerto rico gives us a sense of what cuba might look like today if it was still under american control. What is the context in which puerto rico becomes. Us territory rico. Became a territory. Much like cuba fell under united states. Monitor ship dominion through the eighteen. Ninety eight spanish-american war in which the united states took possession of guam had dominion over the philippines. And of course cuban puerto rico

This entire second-grade Washington D.C. class fell behind in reading. Now what?

"Kept classrooms closed but bars open. Europe kept their schools open despite a second wave but they did close their bars. The result is that they've gotten the spread under control far better than we have. It's been relatively safe to have their schools open as long as they adhere to a now establish set of precautions. Mask wearing handwashing ventilation. Schools are thought to have played only a limited role in accelerating coronavirus transmission on the continent. Those conclusions contrast sharply with the prevailing wisdom. Here were public. Health officials have focused on low rates of positive tests in the broader community as a prerequisite for in person schooling and. There's mounting evidence that this is taking a toll on our children. Our education writer perry stein has been following kids at eight public charter school. Elementary campus here in dc in southeast the poorest parts of town in march ninety percent of the school's first graders hit their reading targets then when the pandemic hit and schools abruptly closed. Teacher sent the children home with academic packets. The school remained closed but the packets kept coming. First graders became second graders. The six year olds became seven-year-olds. This fall individual reading. Assessments administered in person highlighted the cost of trying to learn during the pandemic. all forty. Five second graders at this charter. School fell behind all forty five of them. Not a single students started this academic year reading on grade level. It was far worse than a typical summer learning drop. Some kids are reading at an early. First grade level others slipped back to kindergarten or preschool levels. The one hundred eighty three students in kindergarten through third grade at achievement prep are among the kids that education leaders fear will fare the worst from prolonged closures. Ninety seven percent of the kids at this charter school or black. Seventy percent of families the qualify for public assistance thirteen percent or homeless. These students already fell on the wrong side of the achievement. Gap and now. They're falling far behind

Interview With Imogen Callister

"Today i'm joined by. In calcutta aka k- the media coach after korea to spend journalism real estate operations and a position is branding and marketing specialist at rei imaging now ex with businesses and individuals to help build their brand online. Emmy can you. You can call me. Whatever you like. But miceli i get codeine. Welcome to the show. Thank thank you so much for having me. It's an on obviously debate here on your incredible podcast. Awesome for you to be. He and the media coach is relatively new venture for you. Yeah which you started in january. The she so tell us a bit about it. So look i guess my passion really stems by two ways. One my love of real estate but predominantly my background's journalism media and marketing and it's really blending. Those two worlds together and being an agent is a unique job sam. Every day they have to apply for a new job like imagine that world. It's not easy and you've constantly go to be out there prospecting for new clients and it's my job to help my clients build a personal brand that people want to connect with an also build world-class campaigns in social media marketing and digital online presence to really help them connect with more sellers out there in the marketplace. And it's hard to believe but a lot of people we pick up the fire in one hundred times a day. We make all these goals but you forget like our mobiles right in our hands and everybody fact checks everything now. In fact seventy percent of all sellers will look you up before making a decision on you as an agent so the media coverage was kind of founded on my true passion of helping agents and look like many people. It's been a challenge with covid. I've just had just the best journey. And i really. I'm sorry lucky. I get to wake up every day and leave my passion and my dream and help agents and with some of the top performers in the country. Now so i just feel like it's it's an absolute honor to really work in that position. I mean you've done raising job. So far and really covered as proven agents need to start acting like media companies themselves anyway. So it's great that they've got someone like you to help them along and i think covert is really sorta taught agents viva lesson in terms of you. Don't take back the narrative in the only thing that people here out there is the mainstream media which is obviously always the right. Listen and the thing is think the hardest part for agencies the first question is they say. I don't know what to post because everyone cares about what other people think. And that's human nature satellite. Go onto worried about pricing. I don't know what to post. And i don't know what to say in my purse. That builds brand attraction will makes the whole world of social media like a photo. I mean even though that's not really relevant now likes going on social media where like inist rally aware actually the only place in the world currently with no likes on facebook and instagram. Like if going to the states while that movements coming through so for an aging. It's really breaking down those barriers of understanding that innate to master paid and an own media strategy into their brand so an own media strategy is how they channels look facebook. Instagram linked in google business. What i call like. They pass active brands. They passive brandies lack. They google they look on google. What serves into that brand and making sure that spoiled class when people are typing and then they've got their active brand for their own channels. So that instagram you know. Everyone wants to be into famous. In fact he mcallister of locked you. You know that whole own media channel like may that content pressure now is that then for an agent you really need to look at. How do you create writing fans in your marketplace. Like it's been around for years these idea that other people generate leads into your business but it's gone blown up into the online world now a carry and how it's blowing up. He's all these online reviews and always online review platforms and it's breaking down that disruption for them so they know where to build reviews in brand it gets the more kind of licencees and the last thing i guess formulating strategy for agents now is a lot of people sam. They say to me all you know. I've tried social media before. And i say okay. What have you done that. I'll put up a video. I k and did you do that once. Yup yup. that didn't do anything sat. And it's kind of like you need to understand that ninety. Seven percent of revenue on facebook is made by digital advertising.

One Reason, the appetite for IPO's varies. There are some times where markets are more receptive to IPO's, and that's when a lot of private companies startup companies want to go public. Other Times not so much with a back. It's already public. and. So it's a way for a private company to become public without having to go through the road shows and much of the paperwork and legal hassle of going public. Another reason is often when a startup goes public doesn't initial public offering they lock up period for existing shareholders. It's not necessarily great press for a newly public company to have its founders selling a lot of their shares. With us back, they have the cash already raised and it's easier for founders and other principles of the private company to be able to liquidate more of their shares in the company. The other thing with initial public offering is often times money is left on the table. The underwriters try to price the initial public offering at ten to fifteen percent discount to the fair value of the company. But what that price is very difficult to determine and oftentimes after the initial public offering in the first few hours the IPO jump significantly in price, which means the private company didn't get that money that was money that was trading in the secondary market. It wasn't money that flowed to that private company is part of that public offering. With specs, there's a negotiated price. So the private company knows what they're getting. They know what the valuation is and so they potentially can get more money. How then do specs work? Well specs also need to raise capital so they do an initial public offering. It's usually combined with one common share plus a warrant or a fraction of a warrant, and what a warrant is gives the holder the right to buy more stock at a fixed price at a later date. It's an incentive for SPAC holders to potentially get more shares of the company wants that target is identified. The initial public offering is help for the back and at least eighty, five percent of the proceeds needs to go into an escrow account for future acquisitions. In practice, it's closer to ninety seven percent of the proceeds with three percent held in reserve for underwriting fees for the initial public offering operating expenses for this back to cover due diligence cost legal accounting et CETERA. Most of the money goes into this escrow account, which is then invested in government bonds. So before the acquisition, it's fairly risk free investment. Most of the time, the specs are issued at A. Price of ten dollars per share. In theory, it should stay about ten dollars per share because it's just an escrow account invested in government bonds and shareholders of this they don't know what the potential acquisition target will be. In practice, we're seeing specs sell for more than the IPO price because holders believe the management team of back is going to identify a very attractive company that will be profitable to the SPAC shareholders. So sometimes, they can bid up the price of this back. For example, that back that pershing square bill ackman's company came out with July is trading about twenty percent above its IPO price. The specs sponsors have a specified period to identify a potential target. Typically it's about two years and if they're not able to identify an acquisition and close an acquisition, then the trust is liquidated and the money in escrow account is return his shareholders. If the back sponsors do identify potential target firm, then they make an announcement, it's called the announcement date. Then the back shareholders are notified that there is a potential acquisition target. At that point that's back sponsors perform additional due diligence negotiate a structure of the acquisition. The SEC has to review the terms of the acquisition because the private company will be made public. And then there's a proxy vote for the shareholders of this back and they are deciding to issues. Whether they approve the acquisition or disprove, they don't want to Spec to go forward with it. The. Second thing that they are voting on whether they wanted to liquidate their shares in this back they have an opportunity to get out at the net asset value of the trust, which is the value held in the escrow account divided by the number of shares. Outstanding. If more than fifty percent of the shareholders approved the acquisition and less than twenty percent of the shareholders vote for liquidation. Then the transaction is approved and the target firm is listed on Stock Exchange. If more than fifty percent, approve it but more than twenty percent want their money back. Then this back is also liquidated.

Google plans to crackdown on Android in-app purchases in 2021

"In some startling news, right? I did I did a double take when I saw this Google confirmed that that it plans to make some changes to the Google play store in twenty twenty one and there's GonNa. Be Some big changes folks I. Hope you're all sitting down I by September twenty, twenty one, all APPs on the play store will be required to use Google. Billing. System. Google says that ninety seven percent of APPS that sell digital goods already do this google gets a thirty percent cut through the system as they have up to up until now services like Netflix and spotify bypass this by asking for a credit card payment directly, they would be required to transition over wants this switch happens. And given everything that's happened with epic. Games. And fortnight an apple and all this stuff. This is this is a a direction I did not expect to go in. But. Then there's another piece of this Google said, the android twelve will make things easier for third party APP stores as devising revised system that allows for the install of third party APP stores without compromising the security the system. So on one hand they're gonNA make everyone used they're gonNa make all one hundred percent of APPs, use the payment system so they can get their thirty percent cut but on the other hand they're gonNA say we're GonNa make it easier for third party APP store cannot use our system. So this kind of seems like. One Hand Washing the One Hand one thing the other hand doing the other thing I don't know what do you guys think of this? This was this was this a surprise you or what do you think? A little bit. Yeah. I mean I I, think from a consumer standpoint, I I liked this move because. It just means that there's only one place have to put my credit card info. If something goes wrong like my info gets stolen somehow you know there's there's only one person to blame or one one company to blame and it just makes the whole checkout process a little easier. But of course, from a developer standpoint, like you said with everything going on with epoch lately it. It sort of raises questions as to I guess whether this is okay whether this ethical on Google's part but I mean I I, I think opening things up to other APP stores will I guess help a little bit in that regard? Is. This is this opening the door forget jar make a resurgence. Man is get your still around I'm curious jar. JAR STILL AROUND DOT COM YEP mobile phone. APP. Store founded in two thousand four. So before you know before android. Yeah I suppose. So I'm curious Google isn't Giving any specific information as far as how android twelve is going to allow for this easier. But both of these announcements really feel whether group I would say it or not feel kind of tailor made to the moment at which they're being sued by epic games for you know under the under these accusations that they're incredibly unfair to third party stores and that they required too much payment too much of a paid a a piece of the payment that's happening. Ri I understand what you're saying ron as far as feeling almost like they're doing two things that might seem to go counter to each other at the same time like the majority of of Android apps at least you know in places like the US are going to be going through the play store and. You know the. Money changing hands inside the APP through Google Services has benefit and so what I mean is it worth thirty percent cut I don't know. But that seems to be kind of the standard between what apple's doing what Google is doing whether that that means it's right I guess that's another question. I'm sure there are a lot of developers would say that's that's simply too much but also on the flip side of that, this is android and it is. Put it in air quotes open it's open earlier than other platforms, and so it makes sense that Google would still want to say, Hey, it's still okay for you to have third party APP stores that do things differently from from what we do but if you're going through hours which the majority of people are going to then you gotta pay us for it. It's also it's also interesting that ninety seven percent of the APPS are using it, which makes sense. But like in that three percent, you've got netflix's and spotify who are probably like I I'm I'm less I'm less interested in the percentage of APPs that are using Google payment system versus the percentage of revenue that is not using Google system, right so if if you imagine everybody who a and you know, it's probably you know safe to say that. Lots and lots of people have netflix's accounts who else is GONNA sign up for it and twenty, twenty one. But you know people are always coming on board the platforms and things like that. If you take the the amount of sign ups on Android, that Netflix's get that they're currently paying in and then now pay. That's a pretty decent revenue stream for for Google and it might be one that companies like Netflix end spotify don't want to lose. So I wonder if they're opening the door to another conflict similar to what happ what's happened with epic.

You can find members of those military east sports teams on twitch playing first person shooters like call of duty warzone. Oh Fuck on Yegor could end typically what it looks like. You know the video game is dominating the screen. There's a chat room that runs on the side and people could ask you questions or like joke around with you. Go down and.

But looks more like like an Athletic Jersey branded as the army or the navy. And they're playing the game. and talking to people that come into the room.

Right exactly gamers forever have been sitting on a couch with each other like playing video games and like talking and hanging out. wildwood. Girlfriend law twitch is a way to. Do that on a worldwide scale right and so what the military is hoping is that they can get into that space to like start a conversation with potential recruits to understand how we got here. Matthew says you have to go back in time we want to go back to like twenty eighteen. So in two, thousand, eighteen, the military has a recruitment problem. It's struggling to reach the right audience because they're putting their money in the wrong place they've been spending money on television for years, tens of millions of dollars. And it's not working. It's not getting the same amount of return as used to young people are watching television at the they used to be. Now I'm sure you've already reached this conclusion but the young people there on the Internet watching Youtube twitch. So the military changes tactics, the navy, the most transparent about this. So we're going to use their figures to illustrate the change in strategy in two thousand seventeen the navy spent almost half of its advertising budget on TV ads but by twenty, twenty, ninety, seven percent of the Navy's advertising budget was set aside for online advertising. So they've taken all the money that they're spending on television ads sporting events, and they're reinvesting that into digital spaces.

But yes, the army has created in East sports team and is actively looking for soldiers to wear the black and gold as competitive gamers. tryouts for the team were held this year and members of the team will specialize in certain games either as individual players or part of multi-player squats. Before the pandemic, the military's E. sports teams would put on Athletic East Sports, uniforms, and compete in in-person tournaments or go to gaming conferences. But when large events shutdown these started streaming their game play online for while this entire thing, this military gaming program seemed to fly under the radar.

Are You Putting on Enough Sunscreen?

Are You Putting on Enough Sunscreen?

"As I record this, it is August which here in the northern hemisphere means hours of outdoor time under the blazing summer Sun. But even though many of us do wear sunscreen to help prevent sunburn skin cancer and the kind of skin damage that the beauty industry calls premature aging recent researches found that we're not applying that sunscreen is thickly as we should hang its effectiveness by about forty percent. Sunscreen is rated for Sun Protection factor or SPF WITH SPF thirty able to block ninety, seven percent of ultraviolet rays, the higher, the SPF, the greater the protection although even SPF one hundred doesn't block one hundred percent of UV light. The problem according to this recent research out of University College. London is that few of US US enough sunscreen to enjoy those high levels of protection. Lead author entity young explained to US via email that to calculate ratings in the lab. Sunscreen is applied thickness of two milligrams of product per each square centimeter of skin. He said, an average woman has about one point, seven square meters or eighteen point three square feet of skin for a whole body sunscreen she will need about thirty three grams or one point. One fluid ounces with three whole body applications a day that's about one hundred grams or three point four fluid ounces. For reference, a fluid ounces roughly equivalent to a shot glass of sunscreen and a large tube of sunscreen holds eight fluid ounces of product. So a person spending a full day in the Sun should use about half a tube by themself. Are you using that much sunscreen probably not young and his colleagues estimate that our real life application of Sunscreen is closer to about point seven five milligrams per square centimeter at less than forty percent of the recommended thickness as a result or not getting anything close to the ninety seven percent protection promised on a bottle of SPF. Thirty. The good news from young study is that you can get away with using less product with SPF of fifty or higher. They found that even the real world application rate of point seven, five milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter if using SPF, fifty provided considerable DNA protection compared to untreated skin. So does that mean that you should run out and buy the most expensive SPF one hundred or spread your regular SPF thirty as thick as cream cheese on a BAGEL. We also spoke with Ivy Lee a board certified dermatologist based in Pasadena California who explained that you could. But that the best daily Sun Protection Strategy is to keep it realistic. Lee, said I tell my patients to go for the highest SPF possible. That feels good on the skin for daily use. How do you know you're really applying two milligrams per square centimeter? No one knows we don't want to induce anxiety over this we want to build healthy habits. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States and exposure to ultra-violet or UV. Light is a risk factor for all types of cancer including melanoma more than nine thousand, three, hundred Americans die for melanoma every year. UNPROTECTED EXPOSURE TO UV light damages the DNA and skin cells leaving them more susceptible to skin cancer DNA damage can result from either a few severe sunburns or a lifetime of cumulative sun exposure. Incredibly the American, Academy of Dermatology reports that getting just five or more blistering sunburns between the ages of fifteen and twenty will increase your overall melanoma risk by percents. and. Lee says that although skin cancer is less prevalent in people of color exposure to UV, light can also cause premature aging they sunscreen use will slow the appearance of wrinkles and age spots for all skin tones. Healthy sun-protection habits include avoiding sun exposure during the peak between ten am to two PM wearing a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses went outside and full sun, and of course, applying sunscreen on all exposed skin even in overcast conditions. For full coverage, Lee recommends starting the day with a cream or lotion type sunscreen preferably fifteen to thirty minutes before you step outside. Instead of measuring out of full shot glass of product, Lee tells her clients to think of applying sunscreen like a massage or can fully into the skin without missing a spot since body sizes vary and product spread. Differently there's no preset amount that works for everyone. Lease suggests reserving spray or powder type sunscreen for fast reapplication on the go the ideal is to reapply every two hours but lease as a more realistic plan is to reapply around lunchtime if you're going to be out all day. If you're heading out on water sanders snow more frequent applications are required because UV rays reflect off of those surfaces. According to Lee it's a myth that you can't burn the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet. Also, tablets and other hand held devices reflect UV light too. So pick a shady spot if you're going to spend some time in the sun scrolling.

Airline Cash Flow

"All right our first story comes in from our Listener Linda. This is from one mile at a time surprising statistics about mileage, plus about united, mileage plus. In, we see that united has announced financing in the amount of five billion dollars secured through the airlines loyalty program. This is part of their to have seventeen billion dollars in liquidity by the end of September. Separately CNN reports that that's three times the cash. They normally have on hint. Of course all the airlines are. Struggling essentially with their cash flow situations and they they need to have. Cash on hand united is amongst them of course and It's it's an interesting strategy to take their mileage plus program and leverage off some financing based on that and the findings. He's GonNa come through Goldman Sachs Barclays. And Morgan Stanley and united will have seven years to repay that. These affinity programs like mileage plus our big business for the airlines united estimates that the value of their mileage plus program. If it was a standalone business, would be twenty billion dollars, so there's a lot of. A lot of revenue that changes hands here. We need Dan back as guest to explain all this 'cause. I tried to read how they mortgaged their frequent flyer program to raise five billion in my head started to hurt. Well I'm just thinking I I'm GonNa. Leave the show early right now because I'm GonNa, go start the airplane, Geeks, mileage plus program. I mean there's this is a twenty billion dollar business. We're wasting our time here, guys. I know it's It's pretty amazing so. The, the partners United Partners Pay United to award miles to their own customers, so says things like credit, cards and hotels when you earn united miles or mileage plus miles by reserving at a hotel or using a credit card. United gets a piece of that action and it adds up to quite a lot. So that large part of it comes from selling miles to other airline programs. I didn't see them call out specifically income from credit cards for example card I use most often still is the united mileage plus a credit card. I would imagine they must be earning. Some money from chaser manages that card. Even My my Hilton Program have the option the option of taking my awards, my my points, basically that I earned from staying at Hilton, properties and I, either get Hilton points which I can redeem for rooms, or I can get united, miles well Hilton. Kick something that United Four that for Hilton. There's value because it's you know. It's a service can offer its customers. If you look at the one mile at a time website. It gets down to break some of the stuff down. Like seventy one percent of the cat is offer twenty, one, thousand, nine hundred. Seventy one percent of the cash flow is from sales miles purchased by third party partners. But then when you look at how it was redeemed, ninety seven percent is redeemed by. using it on united. Right for travel, in yeah, only three percent of those milder redeemed for non travel rewards, it does make you start to wonder if the the planes are just kind of you know aside business. Instead they're making money off of mileage plus baggage fees. You wonder at some point Could this be one of these businesses where you know you give away the the razors for free, and you're making it all on selling razor blades. Absolutely I am particularly these days, but even you know even without the huge drop in air traffic is the result of the pandemic. Even before that the aircraft, just the promotional item Eb. Senses Yeah and in some in some way, so it's it's a really interesting business. It's not always what you What you think we also see here that you united his made an SEC filing an aide filing in in that filing. We learn a little bit more about the program. that united mileage. Plus program has over a hundred million members. And that fifty percent of United's flight revenue comes from mileage plus members. Which is that's? That's pretty high. Also the mileage plus program generated five point three billion in cash flow from sales in two thousand nineteen, and that's roughly twelve percent of United's overall revenue. So, Oh, another interesting The number here is it. The mileage plus program generated one point eight billion dollars in Eba, DA, which represents about twenty six percent of their total adjusted ebitda. That's. earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization. So that's that's sort of a A. Year of earnings from an operating standpoint, twenty six percent of united's basically operating earnings from this mileage plus

"ninety seven percent" Discussed on Two Broads Talking Politics

"These days and different technologies that help people get their friends to vote and the the differentiator with the technique. My organization is developing is that it's the most lightweight technique there is and it's specifically designed to get known activists to get their friends to vote. And so the way this works is can it's analogous to commit to vote card or commit to vote. Graham, where campaigns did their ordinary voters non out to this to pledge to hold three friends accountable to vote, and then this campaigns send those voters series of reminders before election day, prompting those supporters to urge their friends to vote can. So that's essentially what vote tripling is. And we're focused on non activists because ninety seven percent of democratic voters are non activists, and we define those people as ninety seven percent of people show up to vote for Democrats, but never bowling tear those campaigns. The second reason we focus on non-activist is because they're are more closely tied to your regular voters than activist like myself or probably activists like yourself in the last reason, we focus on non-activist is because there's a growing amount of social science research that says they are more influential to irregular voters than inactive this like me. It's it's our understanding that someone like me is is the boy who cried wolf when I tried to get inconsistent voters to vote, but if we can spark ordinary people to be voting messengers, we people be a lot more effective. And and so how this started sorry for prefacing not fronts. But so how this started was after the twenty sixteen election. I started looking for ways to get involved in campaigns to us what I've learned from behavioral science to to benefit a campaign. So it was out in Washington DC and one of the races rightness area was a woman named Cannock Arom who is running for state house of delegates in Virginia. And so we in partnership with her just as a volunteer developed this vote tripling technique that her campaign implemented on the doors when they would go knock on someone's door. They would ask them the traditional things if they info, and if they would fall in tier, but at the tail end of that conversation, they also asked folks if they could count on them to remind three friends to vote and so through that little pilot project, we learned two things the first is that people really delighted. Did to say, yes. A hold my friends accountable to vote and they founded a bit flattering where volunteer could say that personnel. Enjoy like, no matter how hard I try. You're gonna be way better at getting your friends to vote than I would be. And then the second thing we found was that when we sent people. These text message reminders, we got really really high response rates at the end tons of people telling us, yes, I'll reach them. Thank you for the reminder. Absolutely. I'll make sure they go things like that. And so this little pilot project with Dana's campaign was just happening in the background of my former job, and I went on to write a few articles detailing what we had learned from this pilot project and one of those articles unexpectedly cut the I obey political Flint's or pissed who offered funding on for me and another co founder to leave my job in work on developing this technique out broadly. So. So more and more campaigns can have access to this and use this as part of their get up to vote strategy. So how many campaigns have you know, worked with? Yeah. So we started in August of twenty eighteen ninety two days before the election..

"Pains the doctors can't diagnose is another one interestingly another is your muscular skeletal system how kind of ready you feel even your performance on the athletic field we'll talk about that later i have a paper coming out in about a week talking about vitamin ds effect on f levick performance how shark you feel mentally whether whether sometimes you're in the fog it seems like you're just not thinking straight vitamin d is crucial for brain health those are the most common symptoms but it's important understand that most people who are vitamin d deficient won't have any way of knowing it because they'd been deficient for so long they think the way they feel and the way they think and they move is normal yeah he can't go by symptoms now you've written the vitamin d deficiency is probably the single most overlooked problem we face when it comes to to our health talking you see something that's wrong i mean what what's the scope of the problem here in the us more and more studies are showing virtually everybody is vitamin d deficient of course it all depends upon how you define that i mean if you define vitamin d deficiency is anybody less than thirty then about half of americans are vitamin d deficient but but many people many scientists and now thinking that idea level is forty and many of us now think actually the ideal level is closer to fifty and if you use the cutoff the fifty than ninety seven percent of americans are vitamin d deficient let me ask you this when when people start supplementing properly supplementing vitamin d with a product like purity products getting that five thousand i use per day what kind of a difference are they gonna notice gonna make them feel better yeah that probably the first thing that they'll notice in effect on their feelings of wellbeing mood by wellbeing i just mean this feeling that you know you want to live you know some ways what's the point of going on from month to month a month where you you know you get up and go is gone and you're you just don't really feel like doing anything you know you're not excited about anything anymore you your mood level is low and and that's one of the first things and the clues that we had a sort of interesting the clues we had to mood are very similar to the clothes we had for heart health we're gonna talk about that later but but people who live the closer you live to the equator the better your mood the higher you live closer to the sun so the higher the altitude that you live out the better your mood and mood improves in the summertime so mood improves in the summertime and worsens in the wintertime now those were clues at vitamin d was somehow involved but just recently there have been a number of studies listen to this and the american journal of geriatric psychiatry they looked at hundreds of people this is what they found they found that people with the lowest vitamin d level eleven time eleven times more likely to have low mood and then professor reinhold visa the university of toronto actually did an interventional study where he gave about three hundred patients four thousand units of vitamin d for a year or so and what stood out was their feelings of wellbeing improving their feelings of wanting to live life and they can feel the difference when they start to supplement takes about a month let me let me get this special offer because i'm watching the clock here purity has put together fantastic offer you've got the them at the recommended dosage the five thousand i use per day and you've also asked them to combine it with their omega three fish oils and there's a reason for that i want you to explain that the synergy you get they seem to make each other even work better plus you're really excited about the fact that you talked him into a pretty good all you're paying for shipping and the shipping deals pretty good yeah when i approached jury i said you know vitamin d needs again it needs a special form of vitamin k expensive foreign vitamin k to it needs to run and i wanted to beat the patented boron and it needs magnesium and it needs sink and we'll talk about why that's important but then i said it also needs fish oil to work together synergistically and this is what.

"Rebels and ninety seven percent of all scientists sts in ninety seven percent of that sort of thing is galling in this woman comes on a professor all mexicans are rapists exactly we should we need a list we do need to list hit this well it's a big deal because justice kennedy has historically been the swing vote between the more liberal and conservative wings of the supreme court his decisions have helped provide rights to gay americans would marriage is also upheld abortion as well so with his possible replacement and president trump's commitment to replace him with a conservative justice democrats and liberals are concerned that perhaps this is the first step to roe versus wade which legalized abortion to being overturned so they tried to push senate leader mitch mcconnell to delay this confirmation vote until after the midterm elections on the slim chance that perhaps democrats will win enough seats to gain the majority in the senate but senator mcconnell we'll have have none of that he wants this vote done this full to secure a conservative justice on the court and that's why president trump met with several senators this week to gauge what would be palatable for them what type of minnie there a two pro abortion rights republican senators lisa murkowski of alaska and susan collins of maine who have indicated they don't want to see someone overtone roe versus wade senate a coal in saying that she sees as settled law so president trump would be wise to appoint a justice who has not previously ruled in ways that seem negative toward roe versus wade although president trump told us on on yesterday he would not ask potential nominees specifically about the views on this issue because he felt it would be an appropriate but we all standing by to see who he will meet here the next few hours as a potential replacement for justice kennedy you know what would gets me i don't think these journalists or anybody really if you ask them point blank what was roe versus wade about and what how does it how does that case or what was the circumstance in that case that led to the league the federal legalisation of abortion i don't think most people know because it was as nothing to do with the rights of the baby or death or when a child is is a person as nothing to do with that i think just review for a second it was the way it was done which i think is constitutionally very solid is the right to privacy under the due process clause of the fourteenth amendment that a woman it's women's decision to have an abortion but it is her privacy whether she does that and whatever medical facilitator she uses for that and when you really go down the line of looking at the fourteenth amendment that the due process clause in this is some pretty re i mean real basic stuff it also fold into the fifth amendment also pushes the pushes the whole issue onto the states a certainly does but it i think that people are very confused and they think that this is you know whoever whoever it is speaking whoever's whoever the person i religious fuck i it's gonna overtired it this is not something you just overturned by though it was a seven to two ruling that was pretty unanimous so it's it's it's it's a lack of lack of education what is recited the point you're right it's the beside the point because his point of you know it's like a point of order it's like a it's a vote democrat is your yes and that's all it is correct and it's it's a dog were in fact the democrats have been coined the phrase and i would say this dog whistle issue yeah to hillary's sale a time don't you say we're overseas wade you've just call out the dogs they don't know doesn't matter what what is really about it's just a dog whistle onto part to a lot of talk also has been said about the supreme court that it's just not diverse enough especially on an ethnic level and you're making these decisions on people who come from a wide range of different backgrounds any sort of sense that he might nominate somebody who is ethnically diverse than the current makeup of the supreme court yeah there is one nominee who if confirmed would be the first indian american to sit on the supreme court and that's a move the paul he's forty nine years old and currently serves on the six circuit court of appeals in cincinnati president trump was also came.
