Hello and welcome to thirty for thirty podcasts from ESPN films and ESPN audio. My name is Jody advocate. Today, the winding path to know mania today or Nomo took baseball by store from nineteen ninety-five seeming to appear out of nowhere with a crazy wind up an unbeatable stuff lately, of course, Japanese born players have thrived and major league baseball each row. Suzuki Becky Matsui and Shohei Otani to name just the few. But before Hideo Nomo Japanese players were affected banned from coming to the major leagues. This is the little known history of how that changed. Thanks to a strong player a rebellious agent and obscure overlooked clause in an old contract producer, Andrew mosquito. Brings us the story of the loophole. Former team you on any form. Of course, every guy that came up to the plate when I'm on the mound. It would get so noisy. And then the whole stadium would kind of rise up and everybody would get into it. Rob Dibble thought he'd been counted raucous baseball fans before that wasn't till he played at the Tokyo. They would have different noise makers and tambourines trumpets, and it was so incredibly loud. It was November second nineteen ninety just two weeks before Dibble a hard throwing reliever had helped the Cincinnati Reds win the World Series. Now, he found himself pitching in a very different kind of series. Baseball. It was an all star tour. So we played eight games against the Japanese all stars and the Japanese players blew him away. Now, very impressed by how big strong how fast these guys were how hard most of the guys through Dibble noticed that one guy threw harder than the rest Nomo, the rookie female from the Kintetsu Buffaloes here pitching to Julio Franco Hideo Nomo was a twenty two year old rookie who led the Japanese league in strikeouts. And was both rookie of the year end most valuable player the Americans would soon morning wine Indian. I mean, I, you know, whether it was Lenny Dykstra or Ken Griffey junior or Barry Bonds or any of the guys that were on the trip. They're all talking about in the dugout lay. Holy cow. Up in the broadcast booth. They were fantasizing about Nomo coming to America. All we'd love to have him. I think it'd be starter for us right now do job I think they want him up on a big. But real quick. Well, I don't think the Kintetsu Buffaloes. Wanna let him go. Randy Johnson was asked whether or not he thought that Hideo Nomo had the talent to pitch in the major leagues, and he said, absolutely. And I was like listen with his stuff that guy can pitch in any league on the planet, except that wasn't true Nomo might have had the talent to go to America. But he didn't have the freedom. Japanese teams had total control over players destiny. And for decades. No player had the nerve to challenge. The system. Dayo Nomo never shied away from challenge. Even as a kid. Well, he was a big guy. So he was always breaking up fights and protecting the smaller kids, Robert whiting is a historian who has lived in Japan for over fifty years and written several books on Japanese baseball army when you're big you learned people don't push you around. What does this is? No, mowing a rare nineteen Ninety-seven interview on Japanese television, remembering his childhood, no Sokha. I grew up in a neighborhood with many factories after school. I would throw a baseball at the big wall at the factory. I tried to find a way to throw hard every day to throw harder Nomo came up with an unusual pitching delivery. He would twist his body turning his back to hitters and whip back around to launch the ball towards the batter. They developed this court shoe style pitching play catch with his father. He just said he was trying to impress father. See how much even increase their kind of wind up by the time. He turns twenty Nomo is one of the country's most exciting young players. I think I'd be against no more to us three times. Shigetoshi Hasegawa was a starting pitcher on a rival club honesty. They don't wanna if you tug as him. It was kinda two points on competitors on the field Nomo and Hosokawa became friends off of it. They soon discovered they shared the same goal into pitch in the major leagues we are talking about it all the time. Someday, we want to get onto the mall Dowd time that was a ninety. Nobody thinking about it. It was just a dream. Of course. Teammates, don't be or something. You know, what you're not gonna make it. One reason this dream seems so ridiculous was because Nomo Hasegawa and their fellow players all knew the story of Masanori more common. Tokyo giants visit for a preseason exhibition. Contest back in the nineteen sixties teams in the Nippon professional baseball league or N P B for short sent prospects to develop in the American minor leagues. More commie a promising pitcher for the Nankai hawks was one of them. When more comet was called up to the San Francisco Giants in September nineteen sixty four. It was a dream. Come true, only, everyone on the team was gathered in the clubhouse. And they said, congratulations. Congratulations. Congratulations. Tons eighteen ten as the season wound down San Francisco did what they could to keep this Japanese FINA. Stateside and the giants check for ten thousand dollars to the Nankai. Hawks more commies team felt they had been double cross and. Nankai hawks front office went beserk. San Francisco was supposed to help the hawks develop players. Not poached them. More Kami was dubbed, a greedy traitor by the press, and he eventually bowed to pressure returning to Japan in nineteen sixty six has American dream was over relegated to a footnote in baseball history to defy custom and tradition was a really difficult thing. In the few new hobbies when we're commie returned to Japan, the decision to leave America continued to haunt him. He recalls hearing the song, I left my heart in San Francisco while out with friends. Waitress at the bar was like are you crying? His friend offered to talk to the general manager to see if more comic and go back. No, I've made a promise. But the truth is I wanna play in America. Japanese players were already on an island. But after Moore Murakami team owners built a wall between them and the major leagues the free exchange of cultures and players was over the Japanese and Americans hammered out what they called a working agreement in which both sides would keep their hands off of each other's players know Japanese went to the states again. In the years after the nineteen ninety all star game against rob Dibble and the other big leaguers Deo Nomo was still as dominant as ever leading the league in wins three seasons in a row. Must talk Keith us on the mall. Nine nineteen ninety four. No most team that can Tetsu Buffalo's hired a new manager Keishi Suzuki says Ukio was a hall fame pitcher, but also a real hard s. And his philosophy was pitcher should pitch until his arm falls off. And that the best way to cure sore arms to grow and throw more. So he figured if he could do it than everybody else could Suzuki represented an old school Japanese coaching style. That Nomo had always resisted. I don't do coaches were very strict the Clinton more emphasis on attitude and choice of words than what you do in practice. Kozo ABI is a longtime Tokyo sports editor it's it's jumped in his traditional way of kind of out in the Judah would teachers has do this win. And if you don't do that to get mad. That's coach Nomo's obedience to Suzuki landed him on the disabled list for most of the season Nomo said because right arm hurt so much you had to drive his car with his left hand. So that animosity towards Suzuki was the start of it all Nomo had had enough. He wanted out of Japanese baseball. The only question he had was how. Around this time, a young lawyer from California was in Tokyo on business. My name is Jean aftermath. I'm the senior vice president and assistant general manager of the New York Yankees. But back then gene was fresh out of law school, getting her first taste of Japanese baseball. It was the Tokyo dawn the place was packed. It's like watching a major league baseball game. Only the atmosphere was maybe better. She had been invited by one of her clients. A thirty six year old Japanese baseball agent named Don NoMura, Don Brash. She was young he dressed in a very kind of hip fashion. He probably didn't act very, quote, unquote, Japanese because he wasn't afraid to speak as mind as they watched from the stands, gene marveled at the high quality of play. And I didn't understand why they weren't Japanese baseball players playing in the United States and on said to me. Well, you know, it's interesting that you ask Don told gene about Masanori Murakami in the nineteen sixty seven working agreement. The one that prohibited. Professional Japanese players from coming to the United States and being a fairly newly minted lawyer. I said Tim, well at doesn't seem legal, and he said I've been looking for a long time for a player who will challenge the system. Mora never had much use for the system, or maybe it was the other way around when I was growing up by Phil Japanese, but people don't treat me like Japanese because I don't live Japanese. Thanks to his American father. Don was a redhead, and it was tough being mixed race kid in Japan. A lot of segregation purchases them, especially when I spoke English. So I had a lot of fights growing up with the local kids, Don dribble nature got him expelled from high school by then his mother had married cut. Susan Mora a Japanese hall of fame catcher who encouraged to steps on the play baseball in the late seventies. Don, signed a minor league contract with the swallows a team based in Tokyo, you briefly describe for his what you're playing career was like crappy me being half Japanese half American. I didn't get along with many guys like Adele Nomo Don chafed at Japan's rigid baseball culture after short plane. Career he moved to southern California where he became a sports agent. Don learned about free agency salary arbitration collective bargaining things that were commonplace in major league baseball, but barely existed, and then PB and Japan. Once you're in the club, basically locked in forever. Don decided he would return home and go to bat for players that were being taken advantage of how common were baseball agents or player agents. There was none in Japan. Don nomura. It was the first one agents were unheard of. You know, because that was the sign of greet on the part of the player that you need somebody to negotiate your contract where you're supposed to do is take what the team offers Japanese players were tied to your Conan contract, which believe it or not was just a translated version of a decades old American contract one that gave team owners almost complete control as Don explained. All this to gene aftermath at the Tokyo dome. He told her he was on a mission to find a player with the guts to challenge. The system. Don was saying the particular player had to have a certain kind of current had to be able to withstand everything that would come at the time. There was Japanese saying that the nail that sticks up gets hammered down. It was only a matter of time before Don NoMura, the renegade agent and had Deo Nomo the frustrated pitcher found each other. I heard through the grapevine that he wanted to go to the state. So we met and Tokyo and a coffee shop Noma wanted to learn all he could about major league baseball. He asked me questions. What's it like in the major leagues what kind of practice? They do Don worried that the longer Nomo stayed in Japan, the more he risked blowing out his arm. One game. I saw him pitch hundred ninety two pitches. The team was winning eight to one and he had like thirteenth strikeouts and twelve walks there were in less place. He still had throw a complete game Nomo didn't need much convincing. And he says no more that's on. I'm going to the states next year. So please find the way to get there. He's very unlike Japanese with he was very straightforward of what he said what he wanted to do. He says just find the way to get me. Over there. Now, it was up to Don to deliver. He roped in his lawyer Jean after men to help Donna, and I did it in our office hours. Like we had a day job both of us after five PM. We we worked on bringing the normal tomato baseball. They started by reading the US Japan working agreement. Don was surprised to discover that the language banning Japanese players from going to MLB only applied to active players. Don had a flash of insight Nomo needed to retire. If he's retired. He can probably play overseas. Maybe this is the loophole. The loophole. Was this big Swiss cheese hold you drive a Mack truck through. And I I remember the two of us thinking like it can't be that. He's it wasn't Don and Jean still had to figure out how Nomo could retire early. They turn next to the Japanese players contract. We'll probably the only agents that read cover to cover and let me tell you that it's tough reading. All right. All right here. This whole lot. So article fifty nine was voluntarily retired players so player petitions the cancellation of his contractor and the participation of players announced his about Terry retired player by the president the league and the voluntary retired player becomes a free contract player says he though I think we found a way to take you. That says no more would have to be placed on a so-called voluntarily retired list. But getting on that list wasn't as simple as the name suggested. Voluntary retired player doesn't mean that I want to retire. So you're on a ball list. They won't let you retire until the club basically fits, okay, the content. Sue, Buffalo's would have to consent the retirement of their twenty six year old as major which wasn't going to happen unless they were tricked into thinking. It was their idea. I remember it would be the middle of the night and the phone ring. I remember sitting on my bedroom floor, you know, talking with Don about what we were going to do. So my whole idea is to agitate the club Don told Nomo demand obscene amount of money in a guaranteed six year contract. If Nomo wanted to be an American ballplayer who's going to have to act like one. We were asking for six years thirty million five million a year. That was unheard of. Ben in November nineteen Ninety-four, Don and Nomo showed up at the content. Sue Buffalo's offices in Osaka. The my the president. He looks at me. He says, Mr. no, what are you doing? I said I represent you. They'll know Molly says, well, we don't accept agents, please leave. So he goes, I if he has to leave I'm leaving to. Yes. Ooh. My ADA the team president was not about to be pushed around by player and his agents and the president just grabs his arm says, no, you can't leave. Then Nomo said, no, I'm leaving. So I told him don't won't want to just say sail sip out of the room talk to him. And just keep in mind. What we talked about. Came out in about an hour. He said I told them about the six year contract, and he was very happy might almost had a heart attack. He said, are you kidding me says you just a kid we don't give out multi year contracts, and you can't ask that kind of money? Besides you've got a sore arm team executives were so flummoxed that they tabled the negotiations. In the meantime, they appeal to got soon Amora the Japanese baseball agent and Don stepfather intervene. So am I fathered reprimanded me says you shouldn't be doing this kind of stuff? I said, well, this is my job. And I'm trying to do the best for my client. You don't see don's wet Don doesn't sweat. He is cool calm and collected all the time. And that's he Deos persona. You just don't see the emotion. He is unflappable about a month later. They return to the team offices in Osaka. With the same demands. I said I bet my last coin that. They're going to get pissed off and say, no. And if we keep agitating the big on threaten you basically retired to team executives early retirement was a way to punish no most disrespect. They had no idea they were being played. I'm sitting in the lobby at in. I see him running out of the elevator says number us on we did it. I said what are you talking about? He says he got so pissed off the buffaloes executives had taken the bait. This time Don join Nomo upstairs. I go up with them. There's like eight people eight versus one, and they were basically ganging up on him threatening. And he just said, no, I want six years. I want six years then the president and finally got mad, and he says if you don't sign this right now, we're going to Terry target, and he just said. Okay. I'll retire. The two agitators had pulled it off club had a choice either pay him thirty million or lose them, and they chose to lose them. It took thirty years for Japanese ballplayer to do what? Masanori more comic couldn't or wouldn't act out of self interest to realize his dream of playing in America. But thank you it. Cut off a few weeks later Nomo officially announced that he had retired from N P B to pursue a career in major league baseball. I mean every front page newspapers, Dale, no, more retired. It's like Michael Jordan, retiring this prime, I go, wait a minute is on white. Dreaming Shigetoshi Hasegawa was no most friend and fellow pitcher who also wanted to play in America. You don't tell me about it. You know, I got bit of Matt. And I didn't get is. No more was walking down the mood on. I did at all. And you know, he didn't tell me Don NoMura found that wall. Was there? Anybody in the newsroom who thought that? He was doing thing moving in that way. This is a dangerous count blue this society. People shocked Kozo obey the Tokyo sports editor says, many people blamed Don NoMura, these is to be very, greedy people. They referred to dawn in Fresno baseball as the black ship the reference being they know the ship that sailed into Tokyo Bay and brought able western ways to Japan. I got a lot of death threats phone calls senior tearing up professional baseball in Japan. Some times I'm surprised he's still by I lost a lot of friends. Same with Bill. He says, you know, what when I was going through the process there's only handful guys with contact me. Rest of them would just disappear. Negotiating in bad faith, some Nomo could bowl for America was considered dishonorable traders, even Donna Nomo. We're used to feeling like outsiders in a country that valued conformity. But now they were truly on the outs. I'm everybody just picked on him. You he'll never make it to the big leagues. Nobody would sign him. He's sending the Japanese community in the bag a wet media guys hiding in the shrubs, I want to ask you though. Are you sure are you ok in the us always tough? You always says this is the way it's going to be in. I'm going to vaguely next year. Just one problem day one and counting of the baseball strike of ninety four the national pastime is past tense in August nineteen. Ninety four MLB ground to a halt as players fought with team owners over revenue sharing and a proposed salary cap for them to go on strike like this. It shows me that they have no consideration for any of the fan down here. The dispute continued throughout the winter threatening the start of the ninety five season. Everybody hated him, greedy owners, greedy players. I think the players actually bore the brunt of it more. But one of no most strengths was tuning out distractions and his focus was set on finding a new team by February nineteen ninety-five Don in Nomo were sitting in the office of L A dodgers owner, Peter O'Malley, and we learned that he was on a tour. I think his next stop was Atlanta, maybe New York, and I said to myself, I really don't want him to go to see Steinbrenner Ted Turner O'Malley frequently visited Japan and had a deep appreciation of the culture. What really got he Dale was Peter Ramales himself says I like Peter I wanna play for the dodgers that was. The green light on February thirteenth nineteen ninety-five O'Malley stood at a podium at a hotel ballroom in L LA's little Tokyo neighborhood. Many years a day. Oh, no has dreamed about pitching in the major leagues. I admire his courage, his commitment, his dedication, and we're excited that he has selected the dodgers to play baseball in the United States today. It is my great pleasure to warmly. Welcome Mr. Nomo day. Or would you please come up? Wearing a dodgers jersey over his shirt and tie. Nowhere spoke to the press while Don served as an interpreter. But. Conc in prior record is things of the past here to start from zero. And I'm going to give every challenge I can't. Finally in April Commissioner, bud ceiling announced an end to the longest work stoppage. In major league baseball history. The players are back. The game is back, and we are very happy about that. But after a canceled World Series and squabbling over millions with the fans come back. That was the question on the minds of everyone in baseball except today on Nomo. His concern was preparing for the most important season of his career all while finding his place Madonna's roster full of international pitching talent. We had a Mexican the Dominican an American Korean and Japanese dodgers pitching coach. Dave Wallace remembers members of team meeting and spring training. So one day I come out, and I say good morning Ueno stiffs, a hug is I'm and Onyango sale. I say guys, let's good morning in four languages. How am I doing? But it was baseball and the dodgers had to reputation of bringing cultures together. I still see my style you belong. Head are hard time. When I needed to have a conversation tend to press conference or do interviews, my English level was zero. Nomo told a reporter he didn't come to America to speak English. But to play baseball on may second nineteen ninety-five. He finally got his chance bad history in the making in San Francisco tomorrow for the first time since nineteen sixty five when Macedonia commie made his decision to leave the giants and return home to pitch with the Nankai. Hawks Japanese-born player will appear in a major league baseball game. So we're sitting third base side. And it was one of those beautiful clear San Francisco days, gene after men who had invested untold hours, helping Nomo get to the states wasn't entirely. Sure, how Nomo would fare in his debut. I remember just being very nervous. Now, I was born and raised in San Francisco, and I brought my whole family who are rabid giants fans. I think I was sitting next to my mother, and I stood in. I gave him a standing ovation. My mother grabbing my sleeve and thinks down. You're embarrassing us gene may have been excited, but Japanese fans were full of conflicting emotions. And there's just a ton of Tigers right behind home plate despite their bitterness. They couldn't help pay attention to this moment. They had to see no most fate for themselves. I heard from the giants that they accredited two hundred Japanese just for that game two hundred that afternoon, Margaret and roomie was outside the stadium working in TV truck for Japanese broadcaster. And h k they said don't miss a single moment lists keep the cameras on him because this is history in the making. Honestly growing up here. I kind of developed this part of my brain thinking American players, just better. Jeff Eno was young Japanese American who worked as an interpreter for the media to him Nomo's arrival brought by the sense of pride and a sense of dread. So I really had cereal expectations. I was kind of like, I hope you make a fool. Others in the Japanese media like sports, editor Kozo Ave were poised to cover. What they thought would be down almost downfall. It's funded the Japanese players challenge the be to come. So I thought he will fail. And we're being told it it's on at four thirty in the morning in Japan all the dodger teammates have Hideo Nomo up on the top step. Take a look at this historical moment Nomo went into his twisting windup and unleashed a fastball. When he made that first pitch in the empire called the first strike. My blood froze, basically. Strike three. Normal struck out the first batter looking but then pitched himself into trouble while four bases are loaded for Royce Clayton. So I'm standing, Doug. So I gotta go out and make a visit here. Bring out the dodger pitching coach Dave Wallace. I don't know what to say. Because I didn't have my little cheat sheet. You know to ask him anything in Japanese. So true story. I go jogging out to the mound at candlestick. Here comes Mike Piazza who's catching dodgers catcher, Mike, Piazza, Dave. And I looked at each other. Because interpreter was never will. What what do we do? I swear to God. I don't know why it happened. But the only other language, I knew was Spanish. So my first reaction is normal normal. Komo's stock. And to know most credit. He went good. And he laughed. It was kind of a or the baseball language transcended any any language that we speak is humid. He was a type of guy that he didn't allow those difficulties really to affect him. And I said the Mike and how much they look so having trouble thrown the ball over the plate. They're going to be sitting first pitch fastball here. Let's Romo split finger first pitch and he did. And he comes back to destroy convict for no in that situation. Despite loading the bases. Nomo got out of hand. There was nothing jittery about Hideo. There was I got this dodgers general manager Fred Claire in you, say, wow. This guy's got the chance to be something here. Nomo pitch. Well, over his first five starts failed to record a decision any of them. I remember hitting about that. Hey, man. What are you gonna win a game? You know, lose wanted to do something know get a decision. A month after his major league debut Dale normal finally recorded his first win June. Second the dodgers beat the New York Mets to one. Sprints victory states did majorly. When he got his first win. I think the whole thing just changed. Then it became more of a fairy tale there's. What? Breakouts today. Oh, which his second out the year. Pretty good stuff. Way. No most been going -ly mighty tough. Consecutive jack. I can recall it when he would pitch the individual cameras lighting up the stadium. Is it all cameras or focus on a day? Oh, no. About once a decade of pitching phenom makes his Mark on major league baseball now in the nineties. It's Nomo whose wind up delivery. And the finished product is turning heads on both sides of the Pacific in the month of June Noma when six games in a row during that stretch. He led the National League in strikeouts and broke dodger pitching records. Previously held by sandy Colfax the same corkscrew motion that Nomo developed to impress. His father was now slaying the best hitters in the world. The press used the word tornado way, he twisted and turned them that's funky isn't he just basically turned his back to home plate after what ball behind his back. You really don't see it again until it's halfway on yet. Almost like flow snake coiling? And then the ball was already at the plate hitters were coming back saying that they couldn't find the ball hitting looks real easy when you're watching and you get in the box. All of a sudden, it was there, you realize why guys are looking pretty bad and noble through it. Right. By the tornado tornado tornado tornado to NATO. That was the first thing I noticed about growing up in that time getting every little leaguer. Probably did the no, you know. Remember going to games here people's that song that no MO mister nice. Dodger stadium. As Nomo-mania took off Jeff Eno, notice, the Japanese media suddenly changed their tune initially. They were all making all these excuses. They would say stuff like the ball size and the seam size is a little different. So that's why his fork is actually stronger here. And then after a while they're like, we ran out shit to say, so we're just gonna give him his credit Kozo Ave, the Tokyo newspaper editor and many others had to eat their words. Oh, I'm sorry. We- mistaken. Once he starts winning. Okay. His intention was correct. Was good, and oh that said is a national hero. What's the prize me was how quickly turned around? It was just like an instant tire mood of an Asian. Just changed talked about the idea Japan has been validated as a country on the other side of the world. Deo Noma was must see TV. In japan. That's strikeouts. Baseball historian and longtime Tokyo resident Robert winding remembers watching Nomo on giant outdoor screens at all these hubs around the city of people just stop look at God. That's a Japanese pitcher on the mound in the major leagues with the dodgers uniform on striking out very buys. My God, you believe it. Finally this evening, y Los Angeles Dodgers fans have been overheard hollering, sunshine. It's the Japanese word for strikeout and the man they've been shoting is currently leading the National League sunshine and was named today is the National League starting pitcher for tomorrow night's all star game. Here's a Japanese import. Nobody's arguing about five years after impressing Randy Johnson in the US Japan all star tour Nomo is now facing him in the MLB all-star game. I got a call from the foreign ministry and says our prime minister wants congratulate Mr. he Dale would he be available on the phone? So I talked to he is I don't wanna talk. I called the foreign minister back, and I said he does not want to talk to. Time. This is why he's just don't wanna because when he left Japan, they talk so much negative. And now they're kissing at us. Nomo was still sore about how he'd been treated back home as he told the PIN's ROY Firestone. At the time. American baseball is one word bun. Japanese baseball, one word fix hard to say, it's difficult to express who you ever go back to Japan to play again. I think that's the wrong question for me because I have tried to come to America for a long time to play baseball. And now I am playing. So why think about going back to Japan right now day? Oh, no. Deo normal the savior of baseball this year. He's absolutely the story. This for this guy has brought a huge part of the American audience into baseball. My do is that he on almost saved baseball in the United States fans were disinterested. Disenchanted and really frankly pissed off at players. And here comes the almo with that tornado wind up and everything was great about him back in may only sixteen thousand people showed up to candlestick for no Mo's debut. But when he and the dodgers returned on August fifth the stadium was packed with over forty three thousand fans. There we go. Topping over the stadium Super Bowl type of atmosphere. It was a magical night for many reasons the year before the giants and intended to honor Masanori more commie the accidental pioneer Japanese baseball on the thirtieth anniversary of his major league debut, but the celebration had been postponed due to the strike in a strange twist of fate. The makeup date had been rescheduled for this night, August fifth nineteen ninety five and of all things the dodgers wind up with Deo normal on the roster and pitching tonight. Commie was honored here before the game. And it's it's irony of ironies more comic picture the giants thirty years ago back to Japan, and you wonder about, but what the broadcasters failed to mention was why more common went back, hue left end. There'll be not because he lacked talent. But avid deep sense of cultural. Since amid the elation of Nomo-mania few realized what had transpired for Japanese player to make it back to the majors. All those years later. People really admire people who stand up into fi system, not in Japan. That's not admired at all. And so Americans don't really understand how difficult it was for them to do just like eight entire nation coming down upon these people, and it really took a lot of guts, courage, heart to withstand all. Dale Noma would to lead the league in strikeouts. Win the rookie of the year. Ward and helped the dodgers win the division a main in a year when baseball needs all the help it can conceivably get they should take your lucky stars today. Oh nomo. Nomo ultimately tossed two no hitters in the successful thirteen year career, but his real legacy can be seen in all that came after. After normal. Wait a minute. They stop thinking, maybe I can go to the United States to should Toshi house ago. No most friendly rival fulfilled. His dreams of pitching in the major leagues too. And went on to be an all star for the Seattle Mariners. So that's because normal with more players utilizing the loophole Japanese baseball owners finally agreed to give their players more freedom in two thousand and transfer market was established for MLB clubs to bid for the rights to professional Japanese players. You know, you need to make change in system. That's unjust or unfair players no longer endure. The intense criticism Nomo faced all those years ago today fans expect their team's best players to someday Representative hand and prove themselves in major league baseball Deo Nomo. He's a guy really that is a pioneer. No, most former teammate, Mike Piazza. He was the right guy at the right time to deal with the pressures and expectations. But no couldn't have done it without Don NoMura, trusted me. And we came through. And I don't want to say this. But maybe the doors were closed if he didn't succeed and his success really paves the pave the way for other Japanese letters. Any given a standing ovation. Didn't here's dice game at Suzaka? Hey.

Hello and welcome to thirty for thirty. Plus, my name is Jody Avirgan today. We go behind the scenes and talk a bit more about the loophole. The fourth episode in our new season all about Nomo-mania in the summer of ninety five and even more so all about the cultural and legal backstory that allowed Hideo Nomo to come and pitch in the major leagues. Joining me in the studio, Andrew Scotto who produced and reported this episode. Congratulations enter you look completely caught up on sleep. It's remarkable. Thank you. No, it's been quite a process. But I'm glad it's and I'll add at that. Andrew you also made this film, the zen of Bobby V. So you've reported before on Japanese baseball. The other reason I mentioned as an of Bobby V the film is because also in the studio is Bobby V. What a coincidence. Tommy, John getting Tommy John surgery. So body downtown longtime major league player and manager who also managed was it six seasons in the Japanese league seven six contiguous, right? And then there's that one little one. Okay. I did my math Ron this morning. But Bobby thank you so much for joining us. And of course, you know, this film that the two of you did together which I love I will say came out maybe ten eight years ten years. Yeah. It's about this sort of culture clash and meeting of the cultures that took place. When you Bobby went from the majors two n p b and this podcast documentary about Hideo Nomo kind of about the reverse a player going from Japan to here. So we will get into some of those culture clash themes. But first, let's start kind of what we've started all these bonus episodes so Andrew hinted at we do a lot of editing and go through a lot of different tape in. There is inevitably a lot of tape that doesn't make it into the final episodes any piece of tape that didn't make it into the final episode that you wanna play here for us today. I think the story of Nomo and his. Effect on major league baseball into it came over here was tremendous. And I think one of the initial stories that we had going into it was not only Nomo, but the, you know, Decky who and Affonso Soriano who interestingly enough came from Japan, and gene after Don new Moro who discovered and seized upon this loophole that allow Japanese players to come here had some interesting things to say about ushering those players over from Japan before the posting system was created. So whenever Don, and I would meet any player in Japan. Nomo three auto it Abu any player we had to do. It was cloak-and-dagger. We had to do it super secretly queer down. Like this getting a taxi driver on Tokyo several times sneak through some rechange taxis. Go through a garage. You know, I mean, super spy stuff. We surprised to hear about that kind of stuff. I mean, the piece the documentary gets into some of the media backlash, but did that any of that kind of really heated stuff that cloak and dagger stuff surprise, you know, we'll because as you mentioned, I I learned about the story ten years ago. It was actually eleven years in two thousand seven when I was filming Zana, Bobby V in Japan. And I remember standing at batting practice before one of the games and Bobby pointed out down the is the guy who brought Nomo from Japan to the major leagues. But the story I didn't know was the backlash that Don felt and what was interesting enough is done his came from a baseball family. His stepfather is hall of fame baseball player and manager in his own right? And I remember Bobby talking about just the the backlash that team owners and fans had towards Nomo into Don NoMura. So that was always an element of the story that I found very interesting was that it wasn't this fairy tale that I think in hindsight, it's. Bobby were you in Japan that exact year when Nomo left empty and went to the major leagues as a matter of fact. Yeah, I was the first American to ever manage in Japan, and it was in nineteen ninety-five. And luckily there was the strike. So there there was a little break in the action. When I first got there, everyone is in the upper, and they were kind of angry at me Nomo Nomo's leaving and I had nothing to do with it at all from that Japanese. So what was that? It was absolutely amazing in that. There was not one person in baseball in Japan who was wishing him. Well, that I came came in contact with everyone wanted to fail felt that he used the worst charactered at ever come down the pike. And that this guy who speaks English who happens to be kinda related to one of the greatest baseball players ever play in Japan was the agent in the agent idea was a bad idea. Also as the agent to to set him free was all part of the story. So what when they weren't playing. And he wasn't in the major leagues everyone said he'd never get to the major leagues. And then when he started to pitch in straight people out it became an amazing phenomena, and I want to get to that phenomenon. But also since you were there in that year. Andrew in the peace refers to this. Kind of wall that had been put up for thirty years between Mira commie and Nomo. Did you get a sense of that? When you arrived in Japan that there really was this wall between the two leagues and the two baseball cultures. Oh, absolutely. That there is a fear that as Jackie Robinson was taken from the negro leagues ten years later. The negro leads did not exist. There was this same fear that all the great players. We're going to leave there'll be nothing left for the Japanese baseball culture. And why would that happen then? And there were people who are really against it in the wall was was had electric city. Well, also, Bob, you experienced even before Nomo you'd gone Japan coaching clinics and the like in the eighties. What was the perception among major leaguers Japanese ballplayers back in even before Nomo? Yeah, it was that there was this subservient. This second level. Second tier mentality that the Javanese players really weren't good enough. And I believe that that mentality was instituted to keep the Japanese players in Japan. It was because they weren't good enough. It was so they would not leave that culture of baseball. And I thought I think it was really good plan. It's too bad. That Don Maura more blew it up. Another thing. I love in this piece, Angie that you captured was also the sense of how the culture around baseball in Japan is different and special in a way. There are these scenes at the Tokyo dome. There's rob Dibble talking about going and seeing fans just sort of behaving way, they wouldn't in the United States. I don't know Tom about Japanese baseball. But this this feels like one of the things I hear over and over. I just wonder if you can describe exactly how special that environment is. And then also why the United States maybe hasn't been able to capture that. Well, it is. I mean, again, it's something that I discovered ten ten eleven years ago when we were making Zimbabwe v that. Baseball. Without a doubt is the number one sport in Japan. It's it's no longer the case say in the United States, but it's in Japan. It's European soccer American football. It's American baseball rolled into one. I mean, it's all comes through that one sport. So the fandom is passionate to the level where fans take off work to travel with the team for the summer. They take off work for the entire summer travel. So so so that I mean, that's something that I think is really special about Japanese baseball. We got into the Zimbabwe v. But it's also something that I when I spoke to said Jean afternoon as an American who went over there on the you can talk to any American who who's experienced Japanese baseball game and not hear their impressions of the fandom and the passion because it is so different. And I think it is just a cultural thing, I think in the United States. Baseball's more of a picnic kind pass pastoral. You know, you said you drink beer, you watch a game, whereas Japan, it's more of a manifestation of. Other cultural elements. All right. We're gonna talk a little bit more about what's in the piece, but I gotta take a quick break. So we'll be right back. Here at thirty for thirty.

Limitations apply. All right. We're back in Andrew. Let's let's talk about the peace. And I don't think I've told you this. But I don't know exactly how to phrase it. I think last week when I was listening to one of the rough cuts of this piece had this realization, maybe I should have had a lot earlier like, oh, we're kind of making a legal procedural drama in a sense. I mean, this is about lawyers discovering something deep in, you know, the the contract, and that's the kind of big moment, and this sort of showdown between lawyers. Did you have that sort of same sense that like how do you build a story around something that on its face is going to be a little dry because it's about, you know, causing a contract. Well, exactly, I mean, I I actually that was the impetus for all this into working title. And then the actual title is always been the loophole. So to me Nomo-mania, there wasn't really any drama Nomo-mania. Because once he was a success everybody in Japan in the US love Nomo. So to me, the conflict was always the escape from Japan. If you will. There's a lot more layers to exploiting the loophole. There were letters back and forth between major league baseball Commissioner's office in the Japanese Commissioner's office to confirm invalidate loophole. I mean, Don was very meticulous in very Japanese fashion to make sure that if ever somebody raised their hand said, no, no, no. You can't do this that he would say. Oh, yeah. Well, here's here's exhibit A, B and C. I wanted to make sure because they would always change their stories. I wanted something in writing. Japanese league. So I asked a club in the states. He wrote a letter to the US Commissioner asked him to Japanese Commissioner, and it came back within a week saying that voluntary tired player is able to contract with the US majorly. So non-confrontational culture. Okay. Lawyers are not part of the culture. Okay. An agents and agents for sure, but lawyers also you go in with a handshake. I worked there for seven years on a handshake. And you know, I it's that kind of respect of what the other guy is doing and dine comes in from left field with this loophole that he explodes, and it works and it worked with the for the other lesser players that, you know, Andrew mentioning. Yeah. Well, it's a very American concept and Shigetoshi Hasegawa who's in the piece we interviewed who is another Japanese player who had contemporary of almost wanted to go to America said, none of the teammates, ever, read our contracts. It was all about the spirit of the deal. The handshake agreement between us and the team that we kind of just trusted them. Right. And I mean, you know, the notion of a we do this all through a spirit of working together through handshakes is nice. But then of course, there's an. Behrendt William talking about, you know, an employer at an employee. There's an inherent power dynamic there, which is what ends up happening, and no more really was being exploited. So let's talk a little bit about where Japanese baseball stands right now. Is it is it really given that every great Japanese player is going to come to the United States. Are there players playing in Japan who could compete here and are staying there for one reason or another oh, absolutely in the one reason the others. Why should I leave? You know, the they're they make a lot of money. They are stars of above all stars. You know to come here. They have to learn where the pie the food. Learn how to get to the stadium learned this new language. Learn these new league's players, you know, that's not for everyone. And you know, the talent doesn't necessarily drive you to play in America. The talent drives you to play every day. And a lot of them are very happy doing that in Japan. Nan? I think that's what makes down Nomo. So unique. Is even in talking to Masanori more calming for this or even a guy like Shigetoshi Hasegawa? Both of those guys said I just want to live in America. It wasn't so much of whether or not I play if I could make a living playing baseball in America too, great. But it was more about just going to the United States Nomo really was driven to play baseball at the highest level. So there's guys like that. There's guys like each row Matsu E who who are driven by. I just wanna play against the best. I don't care where there is a big theme in this piece about this this backstory of Masanori Murakami who I think a lot of people in the United States certainly don't know about. And I love that. We just sort of snuck this extra little story into the back background here of this piece. And you say it's at one point that, you know, kind of Nomo was able to do what Murakami was never able to bring himself to do which is advocate for himself. Can you expand on them? I mean, what what what is the difference between Nomo Murakami that led them to make two pretty different choices. Well, I think the difference. There's there's two major ones right full. I is generational is more commies thirty years before Nomo, and he just grew up in a very different ship postwar Japan, where it was still very much entrenched in traditional Japanese society. You're supposed to obey your parents are supposed to obey your elders. So when there was the pushback what a bad idea, by the way, you. As far as concepts are concerned without a doubt with at. And but but he just grew up in different time. I think the second the second element to is is the desire. I think more commie wanted to live in the United States, first and foremost and play baseball second. Now, he's that's what he told me. So he wasn't really I don't think willing to put his foot down and dig as heels into say, no, no, no, I want to compete on the on the San Francisco Giants, whereas Nomo, you know, so he's a generation younger. So he's been exposed to maybe a little bit more western ideology. I mean Hasegawa had a good line. That didn't make the podcast. We're you know, wait a minute. We're not North Korea. We're not Cuba. Like, we should be allowed to do what we wanna do. So that was that was the that was the kind of thinking that that no mos- exposed to and also Nomo just was a competitive person. He he is the the the prototypical athlete who is from my understanding kind of as a singular focus. Of eat sleep play baseball. So on this question of this happening in the the year after the strike, and you know, I think most people would look back at their early mid nineties and say the thing that saved baseball after the strike was Sosa McGwire and the home run chase in nineteen ninety eight at that was the thing that really got back excited about baseball. But in this piece, several people say Hideo Nomo was responsible for saving baseball. So can both of those things be true or we because he was before the home runs, and and he had Pt Barnum. Remember, he had Tommy Lasorda the guy who is going to single ended -ly tell everyone that baseball's alive, and well, and it wasn't just the old players that he was going to promote it was this new fee. Numb. It was this you've got to come and see him. He's the greatest thing that we've had since you know, for Nando Valenzuela. So there was a again a perfect storm that he was part of and the tornado. Really took effect and you remember Sosa McGwire is not until nineteen ninety eight that's three seasons after the strike, the impetus for wind tell the story was that. I think it's overlooked. No everybody, maybe remembers Nomo-mania, but they don't realize the impact that it had. And it was a story that hasn't. It's never really been told before in the United States. It's in this format, and certainly never been told in Japan because of the way Nomo left in doing the research for this piece. We found some Japanese produce documentaries on almo and they just kind of gloss over he just showed up at a very good pitcher. Here's a great pitcher in Japan. And then there's usually a shot of an airplane taking on on. No most striking out batters in America. So it was so it's still touchy subject there. I think here people just don't haven't really appreciated the immediate impact. He had a coming off of the strike that season. The other big story was Cal Ripken's streak. Right. But even I found an old press conference from the all star game even Cal Ripken was asked about normal. I mean, everybody was fascinated and I think because of the. Cultural significance. There was something that transcended baseball. It wasn't just baseball fans. Coming back to the ballpark. You had Asian Americans all over the country excited to see somebody that they saw as a new role model whereas Nomo now is he he's living in the United States Nomo splits his time between Japan and the United States. He is a business partner of Peter O'Malley's who former dodgers owner. He's also a scouting adviser for the San Diego Padres, you were sort of hinting at that. There may be hasn't been a kind of reconciliation or reckoning or kind of warm embrace even all these years later between Japanese baseball. No, no there. I mean, no mos- revered as a as a national hero over there had a doubt. It's just when you start poking the circumstances, which led to his departure is where people will give you some sort of revisionist history of. Oh, no. You know, we're we're we're proud of him from the get go. We want him to follow his dreams. It's it's, you know, right. And they kinda why. Washed the story a bit. And that's kind of what we were trying to get to it. This was was nailing down what really happened and and how the call too, right? Right. The calls. He had overcome against all odds. Yeah. You know and listeners I will test that this was a big reporting challenge and push on the part of Andrew to get people to really go back to that moment, and describe how difficult it was in those months because there is this kind of revisionist history going well and just as we talking about the phantom of Japanese baseball being fuelled by Japan being different culture. The attitudes of people being interviewed in Japan are dictated by the the different culture. So we're thinking of it as an American standpoint of all going to put a microphone in front of you. And you're just gonna spill your guts. That's that doesn't happen. So the challenge going into this was here's a great story. That's never really been reported since the time it happened. So we're now over twenty years later, but let's get Japanese people to to be forthcoming is definitely was a lot of took a lot of effort to to get people like Kozo Ave, who's a newspaper editor who we interviewed in the piece the fine guys like. That that we're willing to speak to the reality that. Yeah. There was a lot of people unhappy with a domino. And as much as Deo Nomo wanted to be a major leaguer. He always wanted to beat remained Japanese. He doesn't talk about it either. He doesn't consider himself a pioneer. He doesn't want to you know, wave the flag and say liquid. I did for all these other players. He just wants to say I did what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a star in the major leagues. Okay. I want to end on a bit of a left turn here. But Andrew listeners might be interested to know that while you were working on this piece about Hideo Nomo. You were also working on a documentary film called mooch, which is about Anthony Scaramucci, most of our listeners know who that name is. But one of the big parts, I promises a connection here. One of the big parts of this documentary is we were just discussing Nomo is so reserved and even keeled so I wonder. For you. What was it like to work on a piece about someone like that at the same time that you were working on a piece about someone who I would say is decidedly not reserved not even keeled? Frustrating. I guess. Yeah. I mean, Anthony Scaramucci is a guy who knows how to talk. He's he doesn't hold back. I think the challenge there was finding the moments where the true mooch came through the because he's very media savvy is very good on camera. But also was was cognizant of the times where you know, I want to find those moments where he wasn't on that project was a four years in the making documentary. I started filming them in twenty fourteen is just kind of this fly on the wall. He struck me as fascinating creature of Wall Street. But yes, Anthony, Long Island is is probably the furthest. You could get from Osaka. Japan. We're down almost from very different personalities. But I think what the the what they have in common, and what Bobby story, and I think a lot of these other projects I've worked on having common. Are these these figures who kind of make their own rules? If you will who who you know, I kind of classic is maybe a word. I mean, Bobby story when did this Anna Bobby V was about his? Desire to bring to Japan some elements that could help baseball because Japanese baseball from a business standpoint is run very differently. They don't have deep minor league systems, for example. So that was one of the things that we were falling Bob in two thousand seven he was trying to get Japanese baseball to develop more players for Japanese baseball, especially if players are going to be leaving to go the United States. And so yeah. Scaramucci also the same same way, he's a hedge fund manager and hedge fund managers, traditionally aren't outspoken. They're not Anthony Scaramucci, and so same thing had almo- baseball players in Japan. The time we're supposed to just stay in Japan and play baseball. So. Scaramucci is an amazing character in and into captured him by, you know, his mom said, this is the essence of if any. And you got the mom endorsed. You know, you've done something. Right. Yeah. This was frankly, a good pallet cleanser coming in that project to work on this. I mean because mooch we shot four years worth of material, and they're totally different animals. So so this working with you and with Ryan Intel and everybody else here was absolute joy. Well, you've started to give the shout outs here. And I will continue to do that as we wrap up. Ryan tell our producer here worked really hard on this as did Derek John a producer. This was many many many months in the making, but I'm really happy with how came out, and I hope listen as well. And so I'm assuming everyone who got this far has heard it. It'd be very weird. If you listen to all of us and have gone in listened to the documentary, but you should also go see the the mooch film that available on Amazon de yes. In your nearest them's on. Okay. Bobby valentine. Thank you so much for doing this. This is really fun. Oh, fun for me. Thank you. And thanks to you, Andrew Scotto and congratulations again. Thanks jury listeners. We have one more episode in this season coming out next week about Ricky Henderson and the very tail end of his career. He played until he was almost fifty years old. So we try and explore why that is. So keep your ears out for that. And one thing as we wrap I will say that we are doing an event around this here in New York City on Monday, December third, so we'll have a great conversation about some of these same themes. We'll also play some more tape and get a chance to chat with us. We would love to see you there. Again, that's Monday, December third and you can find information about that at thirty for thirty podcasts dot com slash events. My name is Jody Avirgan.

AirPods memes, AirPower mystery, and iPhone China woes

"Happy new year between eighteen you too. It's been like it's been awhile since we spoke. Yeah. We did we did two two shows in one week two weeks ago, we had the break and then this week kind of way to get started. So here it is Friday evening, and we're back at it. It feels great. I the last month of December that coldness fil so nice, talk and breathe freely. It's really nice. We got some some some news to a lot of time to take the beginning of the year and like try to forecast make predictions and things, but I think we've actually got some some need stories to discuss. The biggest thing is the apple China revenue situation. But we'll get to that. I want to mention is the story that you covered which is called air pods for Christmas. Apples truly wireless ear pie. Your buds become a hilarious social media Meam. This was cracking me up over the break. Your message to me. He's like tweets that people had about air pies. And how this wonderful now discovered. Tell me about this. Yeah. This whole thing was obsolete. Hilarious, like not just the jokes. The whole Khomeini came out from Noah it was. It was from. I was felt like a BuzzFeed report like doing doing work digging to the of the main. It was just hilarious like people for some reason this Christmas period. There was so many people like Nomo costumers who kind of like discovering polls for the first time or believing. They were lot new than they were famous and context is that when I came out they made Christmas if you bought them like in the first sixty minutes or so, and then it was like, yeah. Because we all on mine on the nineteenth of December. And then I remember went to see that year. So I was like January and like people ask me in a mall. Like, what did you get those bought them been like, but then like last Christmas twenty seventeen that whole holiday period, they were readily available until like right at the very end. They got pushback some. So this is like even though it's like the third Christmas where they're just kinda like the second. But it's the first though, at least. Yeah, everyone because if you want to give the first Christmas season, all because. Yeah, they ride the. End. So if you went there immediately, then you're going to see if you if like parents buying them for the kids or the younger teenagers doubled to see that they do that don't be on the bond right away. Yeah. But they've gone through one full season plus the entire year. There's no forget these came out in the same times the fan seven if you give somebody and seven for Christmas, they owed straight up like this is not new which is part of the. Yeah. And then this is oh these things these things like out this way to get them like fashion symbol for this. At least the holidays as it was they had these like Korean grapes, wearing them. And we celebrities up with them in the sports teams. Everybody had them seemingly Appleton commercial it just kind of came out of nowhere almost it was. It was crazy and everyone was doing these like people the the root of the mean was kind of this thing where it was like if you didn't have the app holds than you like SaaS lower social clause. Like, you can't. Yeah. Yes. Like, and I'm not being sensitive but EPO not the most expensive things in the world. Right. Well, ahead funds than zero dollars. Right. But then then not like buying an iphone ten. Thousand dollar purchase which is hard to buy. Player and watch for that matter or an apple Welsh is one. Yeah. Did the exactly like I I didn't buy Tennessee's years like they're expensive. But you've had like two and a half years the apples like one fifty right? And they're the people that is a love money and is not not like trivializing it. But is no in the scheme of apple products, and Molin technology is out of the reach of wristy that may pay right? Like, the main will take it to such a degree they became layers. And the best ones will like oh. You you you broke these beats products. Many case. Yeah. Like every every single like Wallace beats headphones cost as much or more. The the. Straight up and your story now, which like it was a top story for a few days. Like, you say you feel like a BuzzFeed reporter for like it was for a few days because like it's funny. Like part of it is on Twitter. They were training airports for Christmas a turning in the USA thing. So that's interesting. Like one of these from someone knocks handle as young ten. Nell his top ten richest people in the world number-one air. Pods owners never to people say, let's bread people with money their bio and number four, some Amazon CEO or something like. Just friends so well someone else Alexander says my little cousin airports Christmas. And he's going around saying, I can't hear you. 'cause you're broke. Lose one. If you have a phone with air pods. And if you go polls, but still you basically put some rims on ninety nine seven holding. They just came out of nowhere. And one of the most hilarious things was people taking a screen shot up from their phone like, the weather or something. And then having the air pods UI like when you pop up in the lead of the charging case. And like it shows you charge that is in like the motor Pinal thing. Very bowl. Yeah. They'll tweet just screen of that. And they'll say like, this weather's terrible. Like today's my iphone background. But like what they're really doing is bragging they have air pods. The most humble brags in the world. You can't even like search for that one really image. And those were so popular. Last year for the holidays. I think they did in your parts ads like in two thousand seventeen it was like the couple dancing and the whole thing was like you can freely. Listen to music. Yeah. Ears and this year that wasn't part of the advertising campaign. Like this broke out. Yeah, they're playing people were like. Because you had the the people on the top trading. And then you had the surge of everybody complaining the puts it being the hype like screw up on base. That's another thing as much as people don't really think of the episode of people still completely unaware that like apple basis subsidiary of of acco. Browns pretty distance even though most now apple because they w one that he just didn't think of them in the same in the same way. Yeah. Yeah. Right. And the whole the comparison is so hilarious because the ninety ninety seven would be the fan seven which had a hone, right? It was it was it was all fischel because haptic presses. But it was an actual. It was a and it's not the gesture stuff and that came out the same time. The did the sevens series on fashionable and I would still like. The brand new and we saw them sold out throughout the crisp period. Because of these mania familiar the moment in the UK still if you buy online, then the shipment is the twentieth is like three weeks away apple store on the Friday after Christmas and like one kid came up to buyer pies from a little express checkout area, and they had one box in the whole store. And it was like he got the golden ticket. He won the lottery day. I was just like looking a popular these dusty nasty have in two years old. I found the whole phenomenon in mean to be quite hilarious like said like now, I think in the US even like they're like late January. If you wanna order them online some stores get stock like pretty regularly, but even even throughout like noble, period. The apples of have been perfect supply. They would seem like slightly constrained, especially maybe in the US, but on the UK still throughout the whole last year. It was still like three to five days, delivery and stuff. It was never they just install can. I was like one of the questions. Why why these things do so try to make like two years down the road? It just made me think like if Podger this popular two years out that there's there's little pressure apple to place them yet because they're still picking up new customers, and when they replace them like if only for existing customers, they're not gonna be the same price if they can sell they can sell out this often of cells they can make for one sixty then the probably not gonna make them better for when sixty they could probably do that pencil and lots of things like make a higher end version for a little bit more keep the old ones for the same price as the markets performing. They do that based on what they're selling so easily even in this letter that will get later they pick out the apples, wildly popular. That easily one of the biggest things and seen some people. Like all the reason that supply constrained is about like the second generation model. The case motive is just around the corner. I think it's very unlikely just crease paired and they were super like the the the Twitter trend apple Christmas said like faith house and tweets, and then the the actual hatch type Christmas had like five thousand. It was I being the most generic apples. Chris like crazy. And there were these things like, oh, my parents are running around and like New Year's day trying to find them and then available. That just out stop because they're very popular. And when the when the case of the children case even comes out that it was always market is an optional extra like guarantee that they'll start shipping him in the books. Yeah. So the the supply current apple is kind of irrelevant to if that case comes out because they said today is is going to be an optional extra. You have to pay seventy dollars for the in case on top of the original apple now. Hopefully, if you do buy new ones they will in the box. It's not guaranteed care selling the the old style ages if they really had to. Yeah. I came out. I remember, my my initial reaction was that because they rumored, you know, we knew even the name was the trademark. So we kind of knew the name, even and it was like just imagining wireless headphones earphones if like what are they like? And then we saw them, and it was like the little just cut the cord on ear your pods and that's air pods. They did some of the stuff like really, but visually it just looks like a glance you cut the cord off them. I haven't had a kid, and I was walking my dog in the neighborhood one day. Ask me, did you are those wireless. They broken. As a year ago? But one celebrity tweeted with air pods and photo and people were tweeting like mainstream now, and it was kind of joke then because they really weren't yet. But now they are and it's like as as a veteran air pods. Consumer how you fill in two years later now that they're going to mainstream. But do you think about your pods expertise of us? Because definitely when they first came out. They were just joked to Philip being cigarette butts in your is and now at least at the moment on the on the writing of this fashion. I said, yeah, the change. There is just hilarious. I love my Stu and the definitely. Unbeaten has been quite a while now, and we haven't really seen anything that can offer. The exact same feature says the at the same price with the same base functionality. You see a lot of them that come in. Maybe slight more expensive like the white team. But they don't have the cases much larger and the battery life isn't as good, for instance. Like, we think we've already seen one can go tos stone every speck of apple offers on their first generation product, right? You're not gonna match the integration like Soviet Google can do that on Android, and I think like Google specials has gotten mixed reviews. Like, I think some people like the wired stuff that they do better than the wireless gave it doesn't even do direct competitors close the pixel buds which Wallace, but they're wide between each. Yeah. Yeah. And the only thing in recent news that I've seen that is kind of competitive is like today, we covered a story of being Olsen releasing promising jellies version of I think they're called e eight. That's a great name. Not really of their wireless. Ear buds was the only Mika while version for three hundred bucks. But they're gonna make wireless version with a case that charge wirelessly to for three fifty. It's like the only thing better. There is charge the case itself, and those Bose sound sport free, or whatever they call headphones that have got like for the long runs those, you know, they're like they're like. Like a sporty version of air pods. But they've got clunky bluetooth. Unlike they disconnect late like, no other and the actual buds are way bigger bigger like little bullets in your ears. The cases you the case. Case with Mike a USB, which is like this point. I'm kind of known about lightning. I wish it was wireless like micro spe- come on. You know, we still Hawas do they like free pulled ZOA they than the other the other month, and they basically direct clones. Even there the battery. Life was not the same case was Boca. And nothing's quite matched do and the PA. The reason I love him so much they fit in like the change polka inside, my jeans, small pokey inside the pocket and is tight like if the case could be slice more she fit like find. So I'd say run, I was very very snug fit. But they do that way. And when I had ODA headphones like ice to have big like over a can while Whitehead head funds? Yeah, they never go anywhere. I just use them home sometimes because if they don't fit in my pocket, I'm not taking them and the fits so nicely in the. Yeah. The the things have they go in a little pouch that have got just for like, I've got a backup watch charger and battery in there and got heart rate strap from my arm from polar and they've got those and it's like that that's just for like those those run days like my routine really the house is like a paddle pockets down. And I'm like phone keys pods yet wallet. So it's like those four things and airplane. Just maintains like even if I'm not gonna use them. I don't think about it because they're so pocketful. So they've maintained that and I used to be that way with like ear buds to just take him to use. Listen just in case, but not. Ear buds to like, I've got the same air pods as day one quite dirty. But at the same ones with all those upsides being said, I had to clean my last week because I've noticed that the sound of volume had gone down. Like, I was at max volume, but he was too quiet, and the very there are some people in line say actually Futi bads and had to get them replaced. But by far, the number one solution is to they need cleaning, gum w wax awebber. So I got like a little like q tip thing. And rubbed the outside of the grill's on the buds. And or this came out, which is disgusting and. Rub it and then like some comes out and all that must be rub again like a great. So but clean, I'm not complaining that if Clayton them because that's just human nature. Right. We produce wax. And they come to the about that kind of process was doing I was looking and give him like a second over like I love these things. But not right. And it's been a long time. Now, I'm ready for a next generation to kind of fix some of the problems. And my number one thing is the actually. The actual apples themselves when you look at them really really close like a perfect reproduction of the pudgy with that wise, but the. Odes on premium as they could be like that design is for starter, plastic and then like you need boaty syncope ses that like two basis not together. And what happens is over. The course of owning the codes the groove where the two bits of been glued together, just get slowly covered in like and Lynn, and it just builds up in that tiny little channel. And so what my puzzling right now is massive black line that goes all the way around them because you can see the same essentially and easily fix is to make a black version or graver is in a dark-colored version. But but not white white is gonna show you every piece of dust dirt grime there. And it collects what that that seem like you said, but if they make a blackberries, and it'll be less noticeable and would like more colors open and people want, even if they call it space gray, and it's just like dark dark color. That'd be cool. Yeah. If I had the choice pay black every single day of the week. I I don't like. I don't buy perks that branding. And the white buds are just like I feel like advertising for them. I just don't like clothes a lot as well. Everywhere. There's no black. You know, earbud that are small as air pods. Also wireless, we mentioned a moment ago. Like, so even if he saw like all those tiny little militant on I'm like, you know. Those airports still he'll be viable because there's nothing quite like them. And even if they feel like they could do design where you didn't have to have seams on more premium nicer Secondly. The beginning. But I don't know if it's got worse or just agitates me more nowadays when you're swapping between devices like if you just put your apple in the previous five that you already had it before they they dingo instantly. You can get going base if they catch the phone, but then you wanna use your ipad you go into many ipad. And then you get that spinner. And I'd say about twenty percent of the time it spins like, half a second. It's done, and then the rest the majority of the time it will spin for up to ten seconds. And then maybe the apple indicated disobeys comes back and then. Finally connects like why does it take that long by foster is so funny mission that because I think I experienced sometimes a where I recall, the most is when air pods were brand new for the first six months or so switching from the phone to the watch was really hard. And I would I would drive to the beach and park my car, and I would take my phone and put an airplane mode. So that it wouldn't pair with the airports at all. And then I'd like put it in the center console and hide away. And then I would try to impair the airplanes to connect connect, my watch their pilots, and like sometimes just wouldn't work and just had to bring the phone to have audio in the run. I haven't had that problem in eighteen months. It was the first six months or so and now it's been resolved. So that was a problem for from early on. It got resolved like the switching thing. I think you experience that more than I do. And that makes you curious about what it is. Because. Nighttime Jenny's the ipad. And so I've been using if out in the daddy with my in my phone nine, I'm like, something emolument. I'm going to the the buds in stub anywhere else. It sometimes it just it was sitting like. Unnecessary long amount of time to sit there and spin and spin then finalize. Oh connected. Like shows up in the menu. But you click on an interest takes ages top on it takes forever. Now. For me, the MAC is all like from dayline has has been slow to connect than the ipad or device or the watch. I feel like the speed that you experience on the MAC is what I see on my ipad as well. It just takes forever. Get it like make it follows the please, especially some of these headphones. They'll be like poem connected to more than one device. So a no me if you press a button to switch between them, and when you do that it's a lot quicker fully disconnecting and reconnecting to a new device every single time, which is kind of like the blue cheese. Do it seems like they could do this bell. Yeah. I on the MAC I use the app tooth fairy. Which puts a little menu bar icon on your MAC, and it's one click otherwise you can you can have the volume as an icon on your menu bar. And I don't think I think he's off by default. But you gotta turn it on. And then you can click that pick diversion the menu. And then then they go with two one click and then tries to connect would say click, but it also seems to connect better and there's an option within the app and the preferences under under an advanced menu. And you can check a box that says improve sound quality by disabling audio input. Which is interesting and says uses a higher audio quality Kodak only works audio output. And then you can pick. How to disconnect? Interesting. What it does? But it seems to make like dislike MAC connection better. And it makes me wish just like the MAC did everything you is the same as as I did in. This regard like, you know, bring over the way that the battery pops up on the screen and all that stuff, and that it's just works on Iowa, the MAC without this utility even mentioned on it. China this week how you're in the apple store and this the Representative and even can even give you can give the mountains or whether episodes worked with the Michael, no. Is kind of a bummer. This kind of overhearing interaction between an employee and a customer and the customer Asir do air. They were already owned air pods. But they were maybe interested in my MAC or something. And they said do pods work with the MAC and the employee was like, I think so I don't know. You know? Yes. And and both sides of that uncertainty to shows like being defaced on the MAC is not good enough. Right. Yeah. It should the salmon used to be much much clearer about what you can do with it because it affects both like the airplay staff and again to amac, please. And who say apple headphones, and they should should appaled work on the MAC shouldn't even be like a question should be defined. So yes, they woke and everything the genius. You bet another it because it's so visited so simple. Because that's how the prince's on regardless of any training and most customers it should be aware of it. Like they woke up to a MAC and see that it works that boats. Like, yeah. That's what you get. When you use the use the ipad, you can go. Oh, yeah. He's just right. That you wouldn't even have that debate. And the airports have never been like a I call on the MAG. Really? Yeah. The MAC sells more like how it works with Android like just kind of works. The way it works show. You the tree of each vid. Web on on. The salmon you, but it's no you don't get the full graphics is like very small just kind of like Acton. Whereas you get the battery I think all accessories just the individual ones on the max. But you get you can you can get the battery of both individual, bud. Separately to the cases, right? Yeah. I don't know. How you don't? Just get one battery that you can get like too. Yeah. I haven't tried the Bose ones on the max dec- if it maybe it reproduces at tail on the beats headphones, it has some special stuff where you can turn on and off. And I think that's like made just just for beats on the MAC. But I'm not sure if you used to boast the MAC, it would just show you one battery percentage like an average of body. I didn't think it would to show they they would be like two pounds to the same thing. Try and see what happens there. But yes could be there on the MAC, and I'm sure that there's like perception of not even worked with Android win in reality. They can hold the back of the button on the case and pair. I'm like Rick little. Tooth accessories. And also, I think maybe the apple TV used to be that way, we had to do it like classic bluetooth. But then like in some version of along the way apple TV became the same just like iphone and ipad where you can you can pay if you're nearby or use use I clouds what it does. So if you've probably like, if you go to your phone, it automatically shows up on your watch and your pad and your MAC, and then your apple TV was was kind of like new after the first few months or so we can she's which is really neat. Like if you have a bedroom TV and a partner and the in Asli two us air pods. So the audio source of the TV speakers, and they actually added to nice to show it on the TV screen. You can hold down the play pause button and new bring up the sound options and you can connect to play speakers apples right from there to dive into the Sandman. Yeah. It's a good for home. Pas to. So yeah, I mean my biggest complaint I think is when that a lot of people are having lately if you're an early adopter air pods. Which is if you use them a lot the batteries consumable in just like phoned, it's a tiny little battery, and it's gonna get worn out. And so, you know, the five hour battery life fifty percent volume socially degrade over time. And hopefully for customers there's an upgrade path as the battery degrades you can you can replace them with something new. But I think we're like you mentioned your all your coli problem cleaning him helped. I think a lot of people are starting to see including me that they don't last as long as I get that too. I went on a pretty big trip just visiting family the holidays, and I was in the call, and I was playing music constantly on on about faith percent volume. And it probably lost three hours. When definitely when we go. They were lost five. Yeah. Because we did we even did a apple Johnny episode on happy hour. I remember doing like an audio test. Right. Just play music, and they always hit five hours. It would exceed usually right? Yeah. It'd be like five ten minutes. Yeah. And now I get like three hours at the same the same. Happy hour Podger via pursued. In my early complaints was the connecting sound this like the sounds. I liked the low battery flat tire kind of sound, but I didn't like the pairing Bach. And now, I think I don't even hear it anymore. He's get used to it. Yeah. I I I this is maybe revisionist remembering I made that connected. Coa like a foam Mark date made it less noisy because before our original complaint. It'd be so it'd be the biggest bone ever feel like now that Boeing's quiet. Maybe that's just me getting Justin good death to the same thing over and over you just get used to. And I mean, I remember my first apple watch of you one of my complaints was I can set a custom techs tone for contacts on the iphone. But was the watch. It's one text tone for everyone. And you can't even change it. It's just the bell. And I hated that for months, and like now it's like it's like we're not me that I'm used to it, and I don't care anymore. But like if if they would change it I'd like it but for the airplane, maybe quieter, maybe the pas or. Mold or duller. Now. Maybe I'm going to lose my hearing. But I don't ever think about it except in relation to our initial review. And I recently, you know, sometimes I like to watch apple keynotes for fun. It's adventurist. And I was watching the. September iphone event, just as the news is the iphone cycles tough. I was like watching the keynote and like looking back at like how did they presented them? Like now that we know terrible presentation of tennis Cameron's how things are doing like in in that regard. I was like it's really isn't much of an event. Like, the watch is awesome. The phone part is kind of dull. And then here we are now. But the. The inter video where they had the mission impossible style skit of like getting the clicker Tim cook. They had the airports where the girls were at. And she said the magic words. Hey, Siri and talk to them in time. We'll go like is that like the rumor tease out in the new year pods that were rumored that feature and didn't come out. And that wasn't the case. But it's maybe think that feature will be nice when it's out. That's the one a few rumors about air pods too. Being able to say, hey, and Siri and having the pods. Listen for that phrase and activate without having to the double tap because double tap when our brand new that wasn't great because it's like you've got to be pretty precise about where you tab. It's going to be like the by. I'm not really the stem and just food. Just like jamming the by the jury. It is amplified in your ears like Bach. It's great. I mean, they changed it to where it used to be Siri, and then you can make like left and right different things. I use left for pause play and right for next track. And I just rely on like Siri from an iphone or watch to do. But maybe man, you'll be nice. 'cause like I do I do play pause regularly, which is why it used to setting. I do skip track. Where you really when you know, he's setting, but I would also like to use Serey to like raise the volume without like. Like, just the watch especially. That now playing screen which is pretty aggressive and useful for the for the of the volume of digital crown and like the iphone your pocket, that's useful. But still found like if I'm writing sometimes it's just I just wanna like say Siri volume up or volume eighty or whatever, and that will be nice if that of that ships is rumored, so maybe. Know all of this is like this rate airpower will be like Christmas twenty twenty one or so. Ever ship slow.

Gray MAC book air with touch ID. Our thanks to step sponsoring nine to five MAC. Happy hour. And speaking of airpower, I'd say we've got this wrong. We got what apple will do. Our prediction of how will handle this this misstep wrong based on how it was handled? Every part delay of something announced and the not release. They've always or almost always given an date, which is in the form of like a Friday night news dump or a press statement of like we need a little time during the week day. But this time power, we waited. And I spend a few every Friday in December. I say that my desk for an hour half longer than usual waiting for the statement to come out and never did like the new year even today riches the Friday. We didn't even start the show just until the time with the Apple Pay bad news statement, just in guys police say something, but. We would definitely wrong. Like, I was I was on this train for a while. And I think I kind of convince you to join me as well. Like, I even do this. I don't find an example where and product ship light. And they never said anything about right? I mean, I mean I posted a story that was like we're getting close to this time. And this is like examples of how it's gone, and even people other companies have used the same thing, and it didn't happen. And people were saying we got a lot of tweets at the end of the month that will like people guessing not going to happen. And I was just thinking like I didn't say anything people. But I think in like the convenience of that as we approach into the month. Like, they're going to say something though, they are. And then they didn't. And even something as simple as like changing on the airports pager says kalaiana valuable DRA moving the picture of the completely from that page would have to me that would've candidate doing something. Right. But I didn't even do that said nothing to in radio. Silence. Yeah. And it makes me think that it must not be dead or they maybe we're wrong again on this. But makes you think that they must not be dead or they tell us and that it's close enough that they didn't want to bother and part of me. These like is it just not a big deal because it's just a charger like they wouldn't give us an like the look at the same as as the eighteen USB charger like it's just a charger, but it's not really that. Because it's like a new invention of like a multi a little with chargers, you know, you can put anywhere on the Matic. There was a reason it was part of the keynote and not just like the battery case, they don't even tell us about they just release it. It's a bigger deal than a metoo part of that are like Apple's version of something. That are exists. It's something that they they invented the patents for and they said they wanna share with the center, supposedly. Yeah. Well, the idea they want to take their work on this and share it with the Chee wireless standards group. So that there can be other while it's harder. Just like this where there's one pad, and you can put multiple things on on the pad anywhere and not like the KEA device where you have like a little axe. And you put one thing there, and it's got to be precise. Like it can be anywhere. You know? You know, I think hopefully that not saying anything good news. And if it was if they decided that we can't do this. They'd just say it and good over with. But that by not saying anything it's close enough that it's less of an event to just really sit a little late. I waited and it was it was in. Luckily, thanks to the UK times. I it means I'm I have more flexibility of covering like New Year's day stories. New Year's Eve hours before. So I woke up just slightly the Nomo one. I was watching the clock and oversleep once gone past the Friday before we know gang statement Moses done, but I didn't want to buy something on Saturday. Just in case they changed the website and Sunday in the minors. Why we extreme for being valley? Yeah. So I had this thing ready to guy in red lychee, wait until their clocks changed over in the Pacific time zone way. The apple keep tenure one hundred percent. No question. No cripples. One hundred percent miss the the twenty two thousand eighteen deadline. And I posted the story saying power missed his original date. A lot of people were upset. I did that. Because apparently I was being too aggressive. And I was like. And. Yes is charging right? There were big things to worry about the charge. But in the in the remake of apple I was really a thirsty. I was annoyed that we predicted it wrong because I was like right now like an idiot again. But then second I do agree with the people who say, it doesn't matter. It's important in the slightest. I was really genuinely disappointed I've gone. They've taken the tack of just kind of pretending that nothing that nothing's changed to isolate as week. I don't let you said even if it was just like the eighteen more challenger, like even if they promise promised to come out before the being the year, and it doesn't come out. It doesn't matter how big or small is they need to say something. Yeah. Even the third time he kind of combo Sunday about pro GP. They changed the dates on that they made it in December. But made it clear that it wasn't gonna ship until February. Right. And that was we didn't December like I was really really. Upset the they did not address this took because it's really mature. And like to even give the over over not day on this thing. Like, I'm in the boat. I've bought a single Cheech since September twenty seventeen 'cause I knew I didn't want them. I wanted wasn't app. How might instead? Any of it? And I've been waiting the entire time. And in March when everyone was going app. Late and we turned down. We said, no, no, no. They said to an eighteen. The Dow it was within that time when the an June came around, and it was like, yeah. Probably they meant to that Pablo now. But they didn't they said twenty eighteen right and September rose around. It's like, yeah. There's these problems hip, but I'm not going to going to count the chicks hatched. And then the deadline gets missed. And then I think it's perfectly fair to point out hold onto account and criticize them for. No, keeping keeping to that promise giving anyone any visibility into going on now because there are people waiting for the challenge in case for the people are holding up buying like CI mats for the thing and is holding back up like vision, like the ten was this future facing product. And and they brought in wireless charging on the series on the ten at that time because they were trying to push the food, and the how was in the Keno not just because it was his like funnel exists. It was like central to their vision. They want to everyone agrees that they eventually want. Get rid of on the I like the lightning poise not going to be there forever. But clearly to get rid of it. You need charting solution than a map per device like it's just unwieldy. If you wanna if you have an iphone and ipad name out at one day, you do not want to be challenging about having a separate not for both individual products. Or if you're a couple of new bedroom. You don't have to have to mass necessarily like just just one for each peasants fine. Like, he's is ridiculous. And everyone always complains about having to hold around seventy K booze. And you'd have a cable few watch an occasional isn't a cable for that. And it's like this was their own. So it was a massive deal. Like, this is why it was keynote material like this that look outlook for the vision of how dead devices we're going to be challenged, and it didn't cover everything and cloudy one day. The mass will go away in favor of like proper. What is charging truly don't need any taking to anything? But I think it's that time is very very long way away like at least five years. So we're going to need something between them. And these pretty good answer that no one else has released a like a two so far. There's no-one known. You see these stories about his the apples equivalent, the power Cuban is not why Foucher September twenty seventeen does exist from any other company today, and I don't care how much you call someone, and I've, you know, Jimmy's the point. Like a little kid can run with the fingers in the know. Nothing's going on these guys nothing's happening and. Now going through a full week of twenty nine nine, and they still haven't said anything about it. So it does. It is pretty shameful. They won't even give an update of any kind. If they said, we're still working on it. You know, we have most even if they said facing technical challenges, and we're still working on it full stop. Yes, they giving a firm day. But at least they've said something thing just pretending like, it doesn't exist anymore. When you picture of it on your website, still when you go to the polls page if you look up the technical specs series, three says suppose. On the page and most critically. If you buy a brand new iphone today in the street pounded, it will tell you to place on the app how and yet the moment they won't even know the exists and its the September tire of it. And they they refused. Price questions on on the state of the product like plenty of cheating to give updates and they just won't do. It's really really disappointing. Yeah. In the in the scope of the apple world, like it's pretty bad. It's not a problem of world hunger. Like, I'm not taking it to proportions. If you inside the app weeK' system. I'm incredibly disappointed just literally sticking things in the is. And he's like arrogance like. You can't big this thing up as being Saint Paul. And then just because you're having technical challenges. Just pretend like it doesn't matter anymore. That is for me is a premium brand company acts like if you have a mistake you have to own up to and they're just not doing it at the moment yet part of my way of judging. This is like looking at how I think about it. But how do people that read? If I math think about it. And listen to happy hour think about it. And like even more broader than that, you know, more mainstream technology new sources think about it. And we see from us all the time care predictions listeners make predictions, and that's kinda surprised given like our, hyper apple focus MAC and happy hour, but I saw USA today. Also, and that's like. A big news organization in the US cover the mess. And it's like, so it's not that. No one notices and that by not saying anything, they're not it's not being picked up, and I heard from Michael steeper who lives in Wisconsin. That has local news ran the story of like this. They're they're charging deadline like, you know, and that's probably like, you know, the people producing the show see like USA today right about it. And so it's apples to story. But it's like it's like they didn't if their goal was to have this thing go unnoticed by mainstream. You know watchers with the company. I don't think it worked. It got. I'm sure let them get away with. Pointing out in a story is legitimately in covering the miss on anew. As the ball drops as New Year's strikes, and in California is just like covering a a preorder window opening you can schedule it you can you can write ahead time and the need to take all your just being so. Like like petty is whether hey about it like you to wait exactly to this change of policy. It's like I'm not going to wait two days later. He's late story didn't wanna post on Friday because CBC actually posted on Friday. And they were like how MRs twenty eight and it was like, I I still inside twenty eighteen when they posted that I was like all maybe they don't apple statement. This is so we went Clinton just recapping everything we already know. Yeah. And that's another thing is like for CNBC in USA today to be able to see in the stories. We reached out for comment to Alpo, and we didn't hear back like if happens to us we kind of expected, but if it happens to CNBC or USA today, then it feels like apple has a thought out strategy of not responding ignore things. Yeah. And to be clear I have indeed contact with apple pear. And I have not responded to the Email in any regard. So we can join the league's people know getting comments on the passage usually we'll get like a we'll get back to you. And they don't. But this one intentional not to reply. I. I that. I like what you said. I was annoyed everyone's saying where's airpower in March. Because like it was a sneak peek preview, and it could have been by September with that blanket missing the year makes you feel like I'm done for being wrong. But also like it brought me just like making jokes about it on Twitter. Brought me so much joy kind of joke. Like, maybe more than the part. Making the best of a bad situation. But at this point like I kind of unless there's something new to discuss just like. Nothing interesting until until they, you know, something new happens like Steven Johnson. Smith tweeted out on New Year's day said where's airpower all been hearing is they finally fixed it so true could ship as a product whenever apple once hopefully alongside the smart battery cases, fry tennis question, Mark. And I think that connection with airpower and the battery case like it can together, but it doesn't have to all this just Quinton and the rumor and the timing. But then someone else like the thing that everyone has heard is that gets too hot. And this the problem problem, and someone told me that they had spoken with an apple engineer said that it will come out well back from moment. So Mark grandma had the story in Bloomberg over the summer saying that they were targeting September released like we do. Yeah, they came pass. But like, I think part of that was they were they were expanding testing to at home. More yen. They end in offices like no in control test environments. They just put it in. Apple campus. People just having been their offices to try out the equipment. Like when home pod was like people's apartments. And yeah, exactly. Yeah. So that was one thing and another data point is being she quo of Tf international securities said late. Late Q four twenty teen or or or q one of twenty nine thousand nine hundred. So there's another data point. And then later on he said, December the while charging case of becoming in Q one lake he wanna think something like that. So that's something to go by. But then someone told me on nears eve, they heard from an apple engineer that they were looking at you wanna Kutu of putting a team of the year that we're now so by like WC from what this person saying, and what they said is that you could put a coin on the air power. So a metal coin when the iphone was charging, and that would like the extra metal from the coin would would what he says Luli have the Matt catch on fire, and that would be insane to c-. But like I can kinda see like, you know, the three products the wash the pods and the phone work. Okay. But like another element of like excellently putting change on there that the more metal would would have some reaction. So that you. Causes more into fair. Yeah. So this is what she is really let my neck wives. So. Yeah. Right. And so I didn't didn't respond. But it was like, you know, what what are you saying? Like, they got more specific that has literally catches on fire. And that and that you know, they didn't say that it's been solve they did say Q Q two. And mash that with Smith's tweeted like all he's hearing that people are saying it's been fixed. It's like maybe that Louis is the story is that like it worked with the three products this shown like other medal in the environment. Could have it react in a bad way. And that was the challenge it's like five tastic dight plaster over new story. Yeah. Put your keys down on their power outage to combust penny. Nickel gate negate like so, you know, we wanna fill in the blanks in her mind. What happened what's going to happen? I think like what we can probably take from all this is that it was probably like the three products as as promise worked. But that something like in the environment throw in loose change or like something metal. And it has a reaction like the other quills react to it in a bad way. And like you don't want to put this warning on the box. Don't you know can cause fire? So, and that's something that like other people floated around so it seems causal and that and that they fix it. And so we can expect it before by W W C. Maybe like that's like in my head. That's like the story in my mind and to be clear, I don't I don't expect apple to release a statement expiring. The exact technical reason why knitting come out on the right time. Like, I did expect them to say he's unreasonable for me to say apple needs to be transparent. Say yeah, it was cash five for the entire twenty eighteen that's on fair. I wanted to say is we still working we've concert, and you should give up by something. They never said why home pot or air pods were held back. You know, they just said time, and in this way, they said nothing, you know, world went by it, and hopefully, hopefully, hopefully listeners can share in north by it. But it's like going for like, what can we say? Until there's looking date. It's just like it is what it is. I guess and we've covered it. They sweep because they let she missed the deadline. I'm not going to bring up next week. Just unless there's chain new rumors or reports just fingers crossed white. Yeah. The Friday evening weights are over done. So we'll see what happens next.

Our thanks to ops genie by Lassie in for sponsoring the show. All right. The last talk about this week before we wrap up is kind of kind of death tells off like where we ended the show last week last year, which is we talked about like the the analysts discussing I find cells or down on like funds costumers, people aren't upgrading. And you know, who's right? Will we ever find out because of how the changing how they're reporting? They're not gonna share. I phone unit numbers only revenue and on January second toward the end of the day after hours trading on the market apple stock halted trading, which is a ten minute break where apple can give some kind of news at will trading, and they published a letter to investors apple investors and revealed that they need to make a rare revision to their revenue guidance from the previous quarter. So the November first. I they said they would make the eighty nine ninety three billion dollars over the holiday quarter. And then we hear that reported, you know, a few weeks, and they say they think that it's more like eighty four billion dollars. So so quite a multibillion dollar drop their and tonight threes, a rind like Ninety-one, that's like a seven billion dollars. Quo. Yeah, it's not even like half a billion several billion, and if you compare that to the same quarter year ago, it's like, okay. So, you know, the draw from what they predictably how did they do a year ago because usually compare quarter year, and they reported eighty eight point three billion a year ago. So it was you know, even though the range was higher this year. They thought they have growth there. It's lower than what the year go was. So it's down four point three billion from a year ago and. It's tough in the reaction has been it's been pretty hard and eople stock where the stock price like, you know, it wasn't that long ago when they were the most valuable company in the world. The first to be the valuation of a trillion dollars in that sense spin like as the stock goes down just sucked out. And now, they're the fourth most valuable company after like, Microsoft, Amazon and Google in that order, so it's been a tough, but they gave several reasons for the the revenue drop breakdown. Kind of what what they gave us. Yes. I. They essentially say that. Great Ajan a- accounts for most of the shortfall at the we. They don't say exact numbers in to the January twenty ninth investor anger side. The moment is still the phobia estimates because they like processing the last week. Oh side of numbers. Here at if you questions for you before we I understood all of this. But it's the last quarter. They call it q one twenty nineteen, but it's it's like the calendar their fiscal calendar. The calendar is is the whole quarter. And so it's October November December and my question to you was we're in January now. So is there any time left for this to change like they're saying estimated and my question to you was are they just like having the numbers come in? But it's already done and that that's correct, right. Like the numbers are kind of cut off. And then just like nother just doing the math, right? Yeah. For instance, they might not have every single number from curious resellers on December. I might come in a week later. So they have to have. That's what the that's what the time between the end of the quarter in the investigators for the to Clayton on biz into double check them into verify them into together. So oversee we are sooner close to reporting this the next vesicles. So it's to canton is an estimate, but they will be they like apple could normally predict like like a decimal place. So they they will be very very accurate on the phobia number like he's going to get to the to the invest in twenty nine and they've suddenly jumped out to six he's not going to happen. It will be the seventies. Yeah. It'll be eighty three point five to four point five. It'd be like that kind of variants. And also, do you think that the reaction to this? We'll get to the reasons in a moment again. But you think that the accident this is like now they've they've. Devoid at the bad news out the stocks hit. And now they can actually report the numbers, and there won't be a change that day. It'll just be like it's been the market has reacted to expire. The again. Financial paper. Right, but the stock price. Woo. The eighty four billion number will be embedded in the stock price. Now. Right, but people can oversee make their predictions about the next four numbers will be and so when do guide when they release the next guidance on the investing if that's even lower than what people are now worried that it will be so it's going to fool. And there their other factors like profitability and stuff, but in general revenues like a decent estimation. And so now the number four all the analysts were revised down that cue to estimates. Right. Which is really the current core. Renou Johnny every mall JR. And apple will give guidance at the end of the month. And if the numbers are higher or lower than the stuck up and down depending on that mistress plant. Okay. Although there is there is there is an important point, regardless. The numbers being good or bad. Companies generally like they have a responsibility to be relatively accurate in guidance because investors use that information to make decisions about whether they gonna buy most Okoh, sell it. And so if you're a company that always Rome on what your guidance as competitive reality, especially when you guess it's going to be high on his lover. Then you start to plant seeds of doubt into the investment community that you don't have to run your business. Probably like you don't have a handle on what you're doing. And this is the first time they've had to do a revised downwards correction since two thousand and two so all the way from two hundred two now they've never had to do this. And is kind of come out of the blue, right, right? The Chinese slow-down was sort of expected, but that should have already been account before when they did the guidance at the end of December when they reported lost. So is that's problematic on side. Right. Even even if the numbers were like, no even that bad if he's going from eight four you too sorry. Eight six on the low end like the find that they actually predict what customers are buying is warning sign for people because it's like the the executive team doesn't have a grip on business, right? Because if they can't predict that revenue how can produce to make that's the kind of gist of it. So it'd be rebound if they do this again next quarter. They said they're gonna number next to revise down again. I think people are gonna to one time pulse because it's like out of the blue. And there's conflicting mitigating reasons that I think get to in a second. But is not good straight up that they've even had to do. This regard the numbers, regardless of what the numbers say and. For a while put on your one revenue number. They wouldn't do arrange right before like mastery came in. And I think this especially through the whole of the jobs era guidance would be a single number and at the time they were known that they would label that number. So that it would be essentially. Yeah. And then you're up at Heimer. Liz CFO. Yes. Exactly and threat, HAMAs rain, they never missed. They never went below the estimates. It was like on the ball. And they're even a couple of times where they had to revise upwards guidance before the core ended and overseeing really mind when you revising 'cause I just made smoke at news and one time this happened was when the iphone five s and five c where nouns that launched core. They said they gave the number and then they said, oh, actually it's going to be higher. Global Gatien to update investors when when significant differences. And at some point apple changed firm, according single nominee, putting a range and oversee the idea reporting ranges, you're less likely to miss and here, we are with the range, and they missed Wallach because if you take the love abound of the range is still full billion difference to what they're gonna report on just pure the finance department that probably getting scooting it because there's no good, regardless of the actual business problems. So without the way, we can talk about why the numbers eleven. Before that, they gave four the four things that they cautioned investors on last quarter for the holiday core that would be concerned, and there's there's a few things that they kind of dismiss and then they drill on on one of the things I say that part of part of the challenge of the quarter was at the tennis and tennis Macs were the flagships, and they were shipping, you know? You know earlier in the year this year compared to later in the year last year. And so the ten yet ten and so by shipping the phone at the end of September versus the middle of November. It was a tough year compared but that was baked into the number, and they say that they say this played out broadly in line with actually tation. So to a non issue, even though it was concern, and they say, strong US dollar would create foreign-exchange headwinds, and they say this played out broadly their expectations, then they say they had a busy Corey. So they released a lot of new products and supplies for constrained, but that worked out with phones and no surprise there. And they say that the cells of apple watch four, and I've had pro or constrained for much of the quarter air pots back again. And the new MAC book air also constrained, but but those products weren't part of this. They. Later on this is I phone specific. And you have to remember the the iphone is by far the biggest contribution to that online. Right. So even if they zero Jesus way worse than things here. I find that stuff being constrained is. Like, an aside versus the. Ten minutes funds, for instance. Yeah. And so they're saying that all was an forecast that as part of the number, and it went as planned no surprises there. And then as as four three expected economic weakness in emerging markets this turnout do how they significantly greater impact. And we had projected, and they say edition, these and other factors Wilson fewer iphone upgrades, then we'd disappinted. And that's where like breaks down. Right. There is that emerging markets, and, you know, fewer iphone upgrades, and this is after a season of like investors saying I phones are not selling as well as apple saying. And we always that. And so it's like can we take it seriously? There's always like redemption point from apple or it's like, you know, haha investors were wrong, and then we have this. And so tell me more about what they say went wrong. Yes. So they say the the most of their revenue comes from great China, and they expect they expected the China. The conditions in China were decelerating, and it was there was a slowdown. But that's load and has been a lot more southern an abrupt than they oversee expected when they made his revenue guidance, which means that Chinese customers have and the Chinese smaller Nanka has contracted significantly very quickly a say, the iphone is small market, so less people I mentioned China, which should and saying if that didn't happen they've been where within that numbers because critically for their other businesses services, MAC, ipad, and lightly other products. I agree which is now named where it was cesary. Evening lose the touch. Grow- grew twenty percent year over year. So if the I had been in line like evens Arab Saint growth, they still had more revenue growth Totowa overrule, right? But the iphone is down predominantly from less Hauts in China. And if you do some Coomassie analysts think that revenue specifically in China is down forty percent year via which is a massive drop. Right. Like forty percent in one year sequence when the quarter before. So the September quarter China revenue was up sixteen percent. So in space of one from sixteen percent positive to negative, which is almost insane giant and some of that can be offset by the fact of the different timing of the releases like we said before the tennis and ten, but even if you count. Massive percentage decline. The apple says, they can't change macroeconomic problems. But they were also they admit apple specific factors as well. They say even the outside of China that were. Iphone upgrade to a slower than they expected in some developers. So he's not just a China problem. Although China's the majority of the issue in this situation. I mean, they specifically say they say, we believe the economic environment. China's been further impacted by rising tensions with the United States in. That is like the President Trump has been very aggressive with initiating trade with China policy is that he wants to make more money from business in China that proxima made in China, but he wants to make money from that. And he said today that the US treasury has earned billions and billions of dollars from his trade with China in new tariffs that have been initiated in this whole debate to be had around that and the house affecting people in the US and the global economy, even but when asked about apple he basically said they should make products on the US and his job is running the country on apple and they're going to be fine. And apple didn't say President Trump. But they say the rising trade tensions with the US. And it's like that's US trade war compounded the normal lower GDP growth slowdown in China itself. Right. And they say they had fewer foot traffic in apple stores in China, which is need to they can use apple stores as measurement of the economy in China for their. Of interest rate rise is like not just what they sell online at the third parties. But like how many people enter the store like y'all it clicks? They killed the people. So it's you know, it's got numbers there. But but then like you said, it's not just China that mostly China. But then they also give like everything else to basically, I think we're trying to get is the if China been the same as the before they would have been wet inside the number range, right? Yep. But because the China numbers low, theoretically, if you have really good performance in every rouse. It would you could you reducing the problem? Right. But they're also admitting and is legal. This is a statement of investor interest that they lie they have to say, yes. In some developed countries, I've out grades strongest. We debate. And they quote. Factors that Burley affect performance including consumers adapting to refu- carrier subsidies US foreign exchange price increases and customs taking volume of significant reduced pricing for the battery replacements, which is obviously now ended. But that was that was a big deal through twenty eighteen where people get in twenty nine about trees. And clearly they get sick. I want to address each of these three separately. Because I think is kind of weird like consumers adopt until with few carrier subsidies. Didn't like haven't been adopt into that for like two years now that should be part of their their guidance. Yeah. Really? That's like the weakest argument. I have on this page Schutte. They already knew about this stuff because it's been happening new. I would argue that the they say fewer carrier subsidies with reference is that historically in the past. You could go into carrier store and pay two hundred dollars for an iphone year contract that costs six forty nine. But you only see when they nine and you're committed to paying your phone Bill for two years, and then you on the phone, and that's pretty consumer-friendly. And that those kind of went away the curious marketed as like number contracts instead you just pay monthly, and you can go your phone still because if we're not gonna do a subsidy in your phone, we want to give you a dill anyway. So these finance plans, and they market them as like annual upgrade plans and to me. They're easier for me to handle than like the two year. Upgrade every to tune it like because then if you want to buy a new iphone every year it's much easier. Now like used to your cellphone to like pay off, you know, the next phone like if you went from six six. You can do that for two dollars. You had to pay off your six or actually do is pay more for the success than you would to your contract because you don't wanna break your contract, and you don't get that subsidy for the next year. And so now, you can pay monthly like he usually on thirty dollars a month. And I mean long term it's a different number. I guess, but like you trade in your phone. It's just like it's somewhat to selling it or during a trade and service else is very convenient. And you're not paying multi hundred dollars at a time you paying like tens of dollars at a time. And it's it's like another Bill that you have every month. And so I'm not so sure about the Feerick carries up to these things. Like, I think it's more consumer friendly now, and you don't have to do an annual great that you can do every eighteen months or every twenty four months, and it's like, you know, then your monthly bills even lower. But I don't know about that. I mean, I know people like Bill to your subsidy. If you upgrade it every two years, but if you like to. Upgrade to the newest phone every year. Those weren't that friendly like you've had to sell the phone and then pay more for the next phone. And in my family like we have multiple people upgrading different years. And so I just like take overs upgrade was available and it kind of worked out, but like as an individual the new plans filled easier upgrading every year. Like part of what apple wants to buy it every year like most people didn't didn't right. Like like, that's the big reason they have to take talk cycle. Right. Is they kind of told me idea that the in general they people in the world, we're not buying every single off great every oversee all arena, slight different. But as a mainstream thing, I think they generally saw like two three your upgrade cycles and everybody else, I would argue that the idea of Kerry sympathies going away like I don't know that they went away as much as like they changed or even got better upgrading. Definitely a new phenomenon. Yeah. We didn't go from paying six sixty to pay for makes you ended up paying six fifty like we went from paying two hundred paying thirty arguably. And like you said this has been part of like even apples copied it like they had the iphone upgrade program, which is the same thing as the carrier upgrade programs, but yet the pay for apple care, and it's like at first it was only apple store is now it's online like they've had time to roll out for more for multiple iphone cycles. So like you said it's not new it should be part of the numbers. So that's the weakest one. The second one is US dollar strength. Very price increases. Different to the four x thing that they mentioned above which is kind of like the cost-related, then buying punishment supplies, and it costing more polls. Next stuff. Why believe this means is the price that we have to sell the item four in international mall kiss was higher. The Nonni will be the delta was weak. So if you take the same iphone like the thousand dollar iphone from launch it and now this year, the dollar is strong of that where we have to so in local currency the iphones are more expensive. Tis in Europe in the U K in and around the world. Yeah. This one I can't say much about you've got the economics degree, not me. But I read it and see US dollar, strong and sounds good. And so it's hard for me to parse out what they mean is. Well, just she's like the pound used to be almost for one pound. It would be to write that that'd be exchange. Right. Yeah. And that was when the pound was considered ready strong. Now, the does really strong is like close to one pound for one dollar so therefore in my locker pricing now I've to pay more pounds for the same product that you buy America because he was company. Yeah. Because say when interest why wouldn't exchange rates too good for me a thousand dollar phone would be like seven hundred pounds and now a thousand dollars five thousand pounds, right? So naturally in local in local monkeys demand will go down because the funds game expensive and in local in local currencies. And that one is something that they can't really control. But it does like exacerbate the if apple is making everything twenty percent more expensive say on selling dollars and then the exchange as bad than there was selling things. Almost four percent more expensive row because once you policies together, and I think the UK probably didn't change the ship, especially in a European markets. It it definitely went up. Like in Canada. Everyone complains about the price being ridiculous now you can spend two thousand dollars Canadian for like, the tennis or whatever like. And that is they can't control the exchange rate. But there is an argument that maybe they should need to change their offerings abroad. Like, for instance, tesla right? They knew that they were tariffs coming imposing electric vehicles in China is probably tried to stuff. They did is they cut the prices that they were setting the calls for to offset the increase in the price from the tariffs. So they basically bird into cost, and maybe I should do that in markets where it's particularly expensive local currency apple should reduce the prices that they sell them the cost and trying to get involved him yet and a not directly match what the exchange rate would oversee that means apple is making less money. But maybe that would restore the Domon difference. And when you when you were saying infra six hundred pounds of six hundred dollars. At twenty Shankar a difference. This impact when you're saying fine for thousand dollars. It's a bigger number. The percentage percentages just a just result in big no mino- numbers. So definitely now agreement for apple could do something different with they want to because essentially he's making less money on every so internationally and play it on for more strategy of selling the same amount finds fewer or slightly fewer, but making no money unit. And this would go against that. But he's not something. They can't do nothing about this. They don't seem to show any interest in doing anything about it. And then the third one which I think you can interpret many different ways in good ways and bad is the the fan battery program Ritchie's damone fife Nicola. For me the way I read this. Anybody if you upgraded your phone for any battery, whether it was in the fourth quarter, whereas in third corps, whereas in January, you will therefore less likely to be interested in changing to the brand new motor when it came out and September. And there took him strokes. There'd be plenty of people. That would have got the battery replacement in January and then still were interested in the name auto in September. And they're all. The people that wouldn't do that. And there is there's a massive in between. But when average they saying the battery program has been less demand for the iphone in this cycle. And I get it. Because. Regardless of whether you like apple does planned obsessive stuff, which I really think as much support. If you're paying anything on your current phone to like keep services, essentially. Yeah, you're less likely to give up on that servicing and change out for a new for new motive by new car in September. You're not going to spend a thousand pounds of repairing in June. If you don't if you don't have to right, right? So it's like. I like. Blogs. This is apple would miss the slowing down. People's finds on batteries would cause more upgrades. And I don't think that's really going full here. They have to say it because it's a factor. Right. This is essentially a legal. They can't lie because they'll get sued to pieces if ever comes out wrong. And so this is a factor that they've determined caused develop markets to be less interested in this time period. And so the sizing down now, what are we talking about? Are we talking about ten million is probably like a million difference? But it's and that's why did not I which China remember that was contributing to. Yeah. And he's probably has to be at least a million for it to be mentioned. They don't say anywhere in the document in the LA. It's a problem. And that's I think where the interpretation is important because. If they don't say always a problem for business that people were more able to replace the battery because that would be kind of admitting the it'd be better for them to not allow easier. Pez I'm to notes and to essentially Slade upgrade, regardless of the exact mechanism happening. They say is a problem. But I do as a contributing factor, which is the. So I think he's important. The timing of this. So the program was announced in December twenty sixteen or seventeen in ran through all twenty eight teen and so twenty nine dollars. You can Mellon your iphone or take into an apple store and have the better place in the program is is that you can always do that. But people didn't really know. So kind of promoted that and also it was a much reduced price. So I'm not sure that the price ranges, but it costs less than it would have otherwise and minus thought was two things first they said earlier in the year that. They said they weren't concerned about the program wasn't a factor. How it would affect sales wasn't a factor in said, they didn't consider it didn't consider it. So that's one thing. And the other thing is the program was all year long. But it only, you know sided through this. And so maybe the answer to that. Like, you said it wasn't the biggest recent. But it was a reason. And and, but it's like shouldn't they have seen the, you know, nine months of activity, and then put that you know, seen the results of that and baked into this quarter. And it's not that no one like, maybe there was a Russia people at the last minute ticket their battery place because they just about it. But from what we've seen, you know, just looking at stores, and wait times that wasn't the case. It was at the very beginning. It was. A month to get any battery. Eventually they got battery parts, and then they people that wanted it. Got it done in you have it done the same day. You know, the demand that the people that did that it happened earlier in the year. But like you said those people are the ones that are less likely to buy new fine later in the year and apple see that until they put on new iphones. So I can understand that. I think there's definitely an argument where the impact of the bachelor Vergara restrict to be when buying new fines has more as influx. When the new models come out versus you're just a casual person upgrading mileage yet. And then another thing is that the iphone better program is over. So now, the iphone battery's cost the regular price. Was that no cheaper than they were before? Right. But they're not twenty nine dollars. They're at four nine for every Moto before the ten ten ten hour and tennis is sixty nine dollars. So it's no the before before originally, I was seventy seventy dollars across the board. So they're still cheap of every single unit. Even like by a bit. Yeah. But fifty and eighty dollars. It's not quite the same as thirty impulsive thing. Right. And so I think that will detract from doing like if thinking like wanna spend fifty eighty or binding and think it's less appealing now. And there was a rush like just because of the publicity last year of oh, you can change you can get any about you finally falls to of like percolate around press and TV and new stations. And he became like a thing that people did. And like, oh, I can do this. And I can hold him. I find for another two years. But like, even even if they the prices the same through twenty nine thousand nine. I don't think the right. If able getting upgrades would continue at the same, right? Like, there was a big bust of people doing it. Because this I can do and I didn't know about it before. But it wouldn't have continued at that level. It would have type it off with the Perkin ending. Now, it's still concerned that if you had your battery placed in June twenty eighteen then do you still want to upgrade in September twenty nineteen? So I think that's you know, like, you said that's going to be ongoing thing. And you know, we miss any of this conversation how Lapa forecast accurately going forward. And might this be an issue going for that that that the long term effects are still unseen. And hopefully, they consider it. But we also don't know how big of a factor is to least important of the whole list based on the ordering at least. Yeah. And then they specifically they talk about the rest of business doing well. And they say we can't change. Matt critic no make conditions, but we all taking steps to improve our impersonal results, and they kind of have to say regardless because they have to be to not just be like sitting on the low ruse. And actually because this is a serious thing they missed they missed revenue guns. And it's down your year. So what they say they're going to do is to make it simple to trade in a phone in stores. Finance the punch time and then get help transfers to the new fine oversee we've seen the trade in stuff spring up in a big way at the end of the the end of the loss the end of December with the she was in in the US with the big trade in value. And then in the last week December. They started doing it retail stores in China and the UK and a load of the countries. They don't say in this letter, whether the station the institution of the upgrade prior of the trade office in the US had an uptick in upgrades through December for the for the the the markets where is available. So you could treat in you can always treat in like trying to get in retail. There's been a thing for many products for a long time. And then they made. Usually kind of promoted around March or an Earth Day on April. The permission like reason, recycle, and and you know, you see that you get a gift card Annapolis gift card for a trade end. And it wasn't a great deal. But then the promotion this time was we're going to boost the value of trade, and it's gonna cost more than there's we're going give you more value than than we would before. And that was November twenty seven th or so it was pretty late and cycle. So they had September in November to say we're in trouble. Let's let's do something about it. And they had all November the end of November all December to look at the numbers and see if we make the trade in worth more and market to the point where people notice and think it's tacky. And knowing treat in stores, so you can do it online and market in a way that instead of giving you a gift card, we take off the price of the phone. So I think before you'd be like here's the phone you receive a gift card and you pay for the new thing like it's two transactions. But they simplified it to be you, you promise to trade in the phone, and I think they lily reduce the price of what you pay that moment. And that's I think it's a pretty big deal. It's not nothing. To get to get the boost you have to buy a new iphone if you trade in. And then you just get the gift Cottam walk home. You don't get the boost. You don't get the boost. It's gotta be win transaction, but it makes it easier. It makes it a better deal for the consumer. Even if it's not as good of a deal selling it privately. But that's that's more work. And then also online, I'm not sure that you could do online trade in always I think you could for all of this year. But I'm not sure that you could always. And then to add to that we saw the trade-in reached non US markets late in December. So that's barely part of of the number for what they saw. But but it's a big question of like did promoting the trade in and making it easier and making it one transaction to low the sticker price of the iphone help in the US because you've got a month of data to to show not to mention this holiday quarter where people buy gifts, and then you know, and this quarter based on that, you know. Uptick or lack of what do you think is going to do in China, and the UK there's other Mark is that just are just not getting it. And only I think those markets only have the promotion stores not young line. So there's still more to be done to boost that that deal. So I took about everywhere. It's market is limited time. This letter kind of puts it as it's not looking is not just a promotion, they want to convert sales motive to this kind of thing poem Neely. I can see the I mean the mechanics of you can trade in online not just in store, and it can be during it's gotta be during a transaction to reduce the value of the jet transaction with gift card. I'm like, wait. And then reuse the gift card for this purchase. That can be all the time. I think the boost promotion has limited time because that's also got a cut in dappled profit. Right. Like, if you pay more than what you otherwise fit for used iphone, you can then like, refurbish and resell. The numbers were set for a reason and by boosting the value to the customer, then then apple makes less on the whole transaction. I one hundred percent expect that to be a question on the investor and in one of the people be have you seen the promotion of the trade ins make a difference going into the next core essentially has actually helped because if not then what's the point in y you mentioning it here. It's like it's one of the only solution that they have besides we innovate and we have a pipeline yet. They say they say, they're accelerating other initiatives, which implies they have other ideas. But clearly nothing raise the guy out the door. Just yet. This weekend by copy our is sponsored by tex- expanded from smile. Still be put techs expand your helps you communicate smarter.

People Amelie jump on when they see these apple quote, unquote, failing is the whole pricing strategy right of every product getting more expensive the lost like eighteen months off, you re this do you come away with the perception the Apple's going to cut prices. Okay. So one reaction to this that have seen is that Apple's in trouble now, and they'll need to cut a better deal for consumers and just in thinking about that. I can't see how that helps if you cut into your margins lot. Then you make less money. And that I mean. I mean, there's there's little can do to reduce costs like they can make something that is literally cheaper sell it for less, and they do that a lot of ways like the ipad EPA isn't part of the problem. But like they did that on the bad and they sell really good iphones for less money. Just not like flagships outside of like inventing, a new flagship that cost less money like to make. That's what they gotta do is reduce the cost of what they make. So I'm not certain that we see iphone Costco, down. Now, we have seen the history of iphone starting from six fifty and having a six fifty seven fifty eight fifty model in this year. We don't have that we have seven ninety nine right? Seven seven forty. So it's not even that big of a jump. It's like seven fifty instead of six fifty as as the low in model, which is a good model from that alone. I don't think that's crazy difference. Everyone keeps saying thousand dollar iphones because that was an option last year and is an option this year. But last year we had. Seven hundred dollar I phoned, and it wasn't a problem. This year, we have seven hundred forty nine dollar iphones. And it is a problem. I get that. Sorry. Yeah. There is a slight difference in the lawsuit have the iphone eight six ninety nine in the pluses seven ninety nine or now that like they if you look at going fifty dollars to get the equipment of the plus you have to go to hundred and fifty dollars beyond the seven fifty. Yeah. But it's really a mix of both of those things so Phillies kind of levels out in like what you get. It's it's so different. And in terms of like being. Innovational this really confuses me because like define ovation, but the ten or more innovative than like the mix of eight eight plus were and it's like a mix of the price too. So kind of levels out. But I know I don't get the impression from all of this that we're going to see cheaper products, like get get better deals consumers. Yeah. I think if you come away with that you'll just kind of like overlaying your own bias on the thing and the best is they increased prices on every single product. And it seemed like they already say that outside of the fine. Everything else was up twenty percent revenue and even look at the iphone. They say they're going to set revenue records in key markets like the United States. So it doesn't seem like strategies flawed fundamentally because then you'd think you'd see we demand in every country. Like, it seems like at least the moment that really is heavily focused on China. And that's a they let cooling unknown apple Pacific factor. I don't think they're going to like the September wrote around. The new finds will be one hundred dollars shape abode wide when I read this letter. What I think is that they see an issue in these emerging markets where they're not having much excess with items that do well in the US and that maybe they need to make. Specific models that aren't just the old models like certain configurations in those markets. Like, maybe there needs to be just version of the tennis with physical dual sim for specific reason in China like maybe they should have different decisions. Like that. Like, you know, how this year we get the iphone ten IRA with one camera and it costs seven fifty. It's like, maybe, you know, the tin would have two cameras in the US. But like in China, they look like what are the values here for what the phone has? And what we can do in software, and hardware, and let's make different trade offs to get to a different price point. You know, like in the China specific model or an India specific model of the iphone? Yeah. That is kind of where I come back because I'm not done four. Really, right. Like nine new the the juice in thing where doing physical juicier Potala. Now. Like, the first thing they've really done that because they India strategies, we sell the iphone SE, we make locally that's not a custom Moto Moto just Bill domestically. And then the China motor is we decide the same funds who said the US, and even if even like pricing is one thing but like feature set, right? Maybe there's a feature the the Chinese customers value that US customs don't, and if they want to and I think is practically they getting a lot more pummeled from competition in China the on the US like Huawei and all these random like domestic Chinese brands the free. Pyo? And yeah, exactly. Maybe there's a feature in China's radio valued and. If he's not on the iphone and the worldwide, and then it's no in China. So and is probably going to be like some pricing differential, even if they just cut the this kind of internet when did the tesla example like let's say the cut the ten price by one hundred dollars just in China. For the time being right? I think the most you're gonna see you're not going to see the price the IVA in America. Go down. Right. Everyone's gonna complain. Oh in China one hundred dollars. But but realistically, that's not gonna stop. You were by in America. Seeing a lot of people pull up the letter from Steve Jobs on the iphone one was out. And they were just the process like half cycle. That's not we're gonna get here because that's not. It's completely different. It's like it's like many videos. Well, when it was like Steve Jobs in nineteen ninety talking about why the company that kicked him out is doing badly, and it's like ninety nine five timeframe and. He's like they went for profits, not for market share. And if they go into the market share. They would have the MAC would have thirty percent market share by now at the moment. It's got single-digit sentence. Like look at the state of the IVA is not single digit percentages. If you wanna Doug bring video the already has more than saves Maga. Shame basically everywhere is mankind of a different scale e expertise, like even the even the basic. They were about seven percent miss right on the revenue and the revenue estimate all abound, right which equivalent which was acquitted like eight billion dollars six seven billion dollars the missed that we reference from two thousand and two was a ten percent miss. And it was two hundred million dollars is just like you can't use history that is ridiculous and. I think in general the thousand dollar iphone strategy has an I find to be I be from his. Cheaper. I'm not like gun higher apple stuff more expensive and didn't even by tennis shit. But this is a very weird core the moment. One core of it going weighed in one region is not gonna make them make the cheaper globally. It's just not going to happen. Especially the thing where they talk about saying revenue records in these markets and every other product, I think that's kind of them like hinting. The all all strategy is generally fine like. Dr enough they need to start slashing prices the French Senate lie, it's just it's just unrealistic people can complain everything's more expensive. But in the GRA still working, even if you ignore last if you know last year's number's eight billion in you look at twenty sixteen results so the year before right? They had seventy eight billion dollars in revenue in that holiday quarter. Yeah. So if you go two years out, if you don't do a year of you compare you to you compare. They're still up five billion dollars almost right like. It could be a blip kind of like how the iphone six pushed forward loads of. And then I used to Klein for a because it was like pinup damone for the big screens. And then if you look at the overall, it's still going up woods, maybe that's kind of what's going to happen here. The macroeconomic stuff in China is like really won't kin. The problem with the macroeconomic stuff is the I don't know enough about China's GP conditions is that it. It must have been. It sounds like it was a sharp decline from recent policy changes, they say trade war, and you know, just like reading the temperature that isn't going away anytime soon and so. Mike, my fear is like that could get much worse like way worse. You know, we already saw today. Larry cudlow Trump's economic advisor used to be CNBC commentator for years. And then now he tells Trump economic policy in persons, the TV, and he kind of just like made a comment often the side of like, maybe China stole technology from apple we think that's happening in that they're benefiting from that. And that apple taking hit from it. And it was so general and he said, and they might even be investigating it. We're not sure, but it's like that's kind of rhetoric of like, you know, US versus China, and like China's bad there, and like the US gonna you know, concerned about it. But it's and it's not saying anything super strongest like just touching on it. And so it feels like, you know, for lots of reasons this could get way worse. And you know, it's almost like. If you focus on China like part of it is like apples dependency on phone for growth is like what makes them look, you know, look healthy and do eighty for billions a lot of money. But no, one cares. If it isn't growth and missing its way worse. But it's like if you know how dependent is apple China like can apple pull out of China, and like shake up their business, and people will be impressed. Probably not. And it feels like China could get way worse for apple like people are saying like always gonna take a long time for bake growth in their other in their other businesses, which depend on childhood then. Yeah. To catch up to make up the difference. Like, eventually, you'd probably expect they probably could close that China gap. But it would be like that would be like a halt decade thing, which is a very very long time and the investment market would be shop into happens unrealistically far out. Yeah. But it is pretty entering the. For lots of reasons. But like, it was a very serious question of people asking Tim cook. Are you concerned about traveling to China on the fear of being arrested as as an American citizen because of what's happening with wow away in the trade war? And I think there was a CFO arrests of woah executive in the country, and it's like for lots of reasons like. That was a serious question. And he had to say no that he's going to China very soon like at the end of the quarter, and in the letter to investors they needed to say that they're very proud to do business in China. Like, they've got to be pro China as a company, whereas the government, President Trump, and the administration can be, you know, America first and aggressive very aggressive say we are proud to participate in the Chinese market place. Like that's not saying, that's that's there for a reason. That's for trying to read. And so they've got a little much China temple, especially in a big way. And is at odds with what the administration is doing. That's tough. But it feels like it could get way worse. If it does then I think it's easier for people to like separate China versus iphone because like regardless of the China situation. Iphone growth has already been a concern anyway. And so this is this like apples in China as an excuse for what's going on with the iphone? And you've got to kind of break out. Like, what percentage is what? But if it got way worse than China. I think it'd be much clearer than this would be and then you say that's because of China like apples having issues, but then you can say so as every other company that does business in China, and they need they'll be less dependent on China for growth and for success. Probably why they've been talking. India didn't have anything special apart from the NSA which is still more expensive than most defense soda India. So. Yes. The casualties, Irv. Like the way that goes seems like India was pushed as a big opportunity years ago like five years ago, or so and that they haven't got out what they thought they could yet. Like one percent, Malcolm. Jared the moment, right and right, right. Whereas they had the big left go by doubling their services business twenty sixteen to twenty twenty like they're on track for that feels like India was a goal they had and they didn't give a hard number. But they've not not cracked it yet not figured, and they didn't even fell out. They kind of a bit blase about it to be honest because they didn't even start doing domestic manufacturing the until like early last year. So. Before before that they were having say Sinn tariffs on imports from and that's that's a that's another example, like the maybe there should be iphones that you came and by the US, but therefore emerging markets like, you know, in that you want to sell it in mass numbers. But it's like it's it would affect the iphone business in the US negatively, if he's holding iphone with that feature fit feature said, even at that price point like you wouldn't make it up in volume, but that in other emerging markets like you need to have that as an option. Maybe an emerging markets you need to focus on market share expansion for a while. Whereas in US, you've already you already out we like fifty cent iphone overrule. So you don't have to be as price-sensitive. Yeah. And one last thing I'd like to sound over thing is that now. Every single product announcement now from apple wherever this next most paired everyone's gonna be like evaluate gets his legs. If it's going to make any difference like apples line, if this year is saying stone there is there anything they can really Chinese how much they challenge the stuff, right? Like. Especially I was going to be a great example. If it does have massive harms Korean Bob everybody like say now apples on the rocks. Folly innovate again. They just drive the innovation buzzword, and it'd be even worse if we hadn't already heard about the laws of like screaming was redesigned was delayed food to now, and it will be the same like whenever the next. Pat comes out in the spring will be like, oh, this is the same price of nausea. It must be because they haven't to be more conscious. Okay. Ping, the prices down. Everything now is just going to be like Memed back. The is gonna be some annoying. Imagine. Because I don't think we get anything any changes in terms of what they release in twenty nineteen. I could see maybe like you said the pricing on all of it Blake. If they feel like they're stuck with their current like hardware offerings that maybe they can boost up when they are selling something new like in the last cycles we've seen. You know, some of the flagship lineup released later this temper not into temper so like you get something. It's something else in October November. We're not really on track for that. But like maybe they could release new iphones in like July like junior August like and they used to do something right from launches. And for whatever reason it went back then went to the fall in October. And it's timber four Ashland. The five. Like, maybe that just helps with. You've got a new set of devices to work with if they're ready, but we haven't like, right? The ten hours a flop, for instance, and bringing something replacement for it sooner than you would have no Maly. And it's like, it's like this is the new version of the ten or whatever you name it. It's like the tenora wasn't a flop, but we've we've innovated faster. We're not writing our laurels. Yeah. We're excited to bring innovation to you now. Yeah. And they wouldn't run. I always thirteen yet. I always told as well liked and everything. And then I always achieved in the fall for free. It's like, you know, how I kind of see that. I don't know how much it would help or not. But how much flexibly areas rapid to do it because of the Iran such a massive product. They have to do stuff, so many months and involved. And then what could that do with say, the tennis and ten other markets can then you know, with them or give. Yeah. Exactly. Maybe I feel like this is more got wretched anything but save apple really wanted to release. And I find in the summer, I feel like they could start ordering paula's now and get stuff out the door. And it wouldn't have to be like both phones. It would be kind of annoying. Like what if there was the ten or equivalent in the summer in the tennis Oakland in the fall different ipads, the year different iphones? The I don't know. We generally see them ramp supply ramp production in the July period. Right. Sit timber Lorge. So I feel like if you take that two month window, and then I'd say another month on top because it's like the plan hasn't been long plan. But rushing out the door. You get a bit more leeway for people to get running a feel that you could do as summer. I you could push something forward and get it out in the June, July timeframe, if you really had to like, I'm sure it will be idea when there'd be problems, and they gross knowledge is not be hit for wall because they had to pay more people to get stuff done falls too. But it seems like something is. Insurmountable problem, if that's what I thought would actually help on this topic of innovation like, that's something that just really sit on and think about like when people say that what do they mean? And I think it means like what excites people like what they think is like whizbang in like, I want that. And if it's even if it's like technol- technology advancing if it doesn't excite them innovation. And these people like way different to be innovative. I mean, they change the way the iphone looks. And that's what we wanted. And we liked the way it looks now like an feels great because of it and to me that feels great, but like people still want innovation and I like so going forward we see apple making this move to invest in services and grow that business. So that it's not just like I phone dependent to be apple that you can also look at revenue of like, you've got this massive install base. And now you extract more money from them without even buying the mining new iphone every customers worth more money to you. Then even if they buy new iphone every year or every two years innovation thing is like you want to be excited. And I'm not sure that you get excited about like video service that makes a lot of money. And what you probably excited about is like, you know, the streetcar project or like maybe the apple glasses project. That's excites you, and I don't know that those are like, especially the like massive businesses, even if you call innovation, and so I tend to think the solution. Whatever innovation means more boring, and like, you know, good on on a spreadsheet and like not exciting like Aquino kind of kind of solution. Here innovation is such a it's easy to hide behind because you can just throw out people could no longer than you think about you actually made. 'cause the you look at the lowest we were complaining before the tank you had six six seven and even the eight were. Were. I think a lot of people would say that was an invasion Eappen on that take talk. Talk talk cycle if ten they mean there is it didn't look different right? We've just had the massive change in ten in twenty seventeen that was really different like enforced all different. And of see we expecting a talk tennis. But people are. Oversee less excited about it this shit, and they worry about the the massive design change. But it's unreasonable to expect message every if the sake of it because I didn't give what they gonna do differently. Really like. And I think if you wanna throw around the woods innovation than you should point to like other companies are doing that isn't. And I think for instance, the camera is an area where you can say apple is. Not up to pollen hysterically, right? Because for while. The I've always had talked to a camera and more recently, he more debatable. Now like a lot. Who would say even the pixel two can take pictures in the tennis kind and. Subjective. But. I think a lot of people would say Google is innovating more on the camera than the iphone is I think like night the night modes site features wrote out is a good example of that. Right. Like in is it. Because you have to white and it takes five seconds of the patriots, take khloe. It's not the main way everyone's take pictures now. But it's a good feature that will come in useful institutions and apple hasn't shown any interest in adopting it. Across to right. So, and I think those kind of the people that would argue about like apple in innovating would say what we would expect the iphone to do that. I know. Not maybe next year like so they're definitely areas where. But there's some areas where leading the market we would talked about apple it's still being unrivaled. And I think the iphone ten gestures away bed and Android. Try to do on any platform. The I've been ten just as much smoother fluid and make much sense to even like it's not perfect. And it's it's better now than it was a year ago. I know people still like touch ID as an option, and and people now are calling for like do touch ID under the screen even with face idea. But if you look at face, the like, you don't see something as good as that would the same biometric security on Android yet, and touch a D was like I and better for a couple years ahead of time. And then it caught up, and I don't think that seem face catch up in the same way yet like like in the way that caught up basically, no, Android phones. Do the depth cameras toll your face, but they emission from like Samsung that you're right. Yeah. A noggin. That's good enough for low paper because even the face at system if your twins, then you have the same problem. So there are definitely like how about and stuff, but you can say Apple's innovating in the secure by metric arena, right? And you and you have to pick Mony she's. But I think it's I don't like the innovate in full stop. It's just not true. I would say you could say the innovator less this year than they did last year in the just because they kind of group seventy changes together, and they're still charging the same thousand dollar prize. Because it seems like a lot of people had this idea that the thousand dollar iphone was like a one time thing, and it was like the special anniversary always thousand dollars special edition. I ten and then people have this idea in the hit that next year is going to go back down to like six fifty before the tennis came out. There were the space in the rumors for the for the tennis to the eight nine. Yeah. Didn't happen thera price point as well. But that wasn't why expected op and kind of wanted with the digger screen in mind. We thought maybe we see tennis for like not just like thinking. But like they were they were endless predictions of like tennis for nine hundred and tennis max for one thousand it'd that didn't happen. Yeah. Definitely wasn't going back to six fifty levels. And right. It's definitely interesting that if you keep charging thousand dollars, do you need more fussy features every give verses, but I don't think the wanna to this thing where with a thousand dollars this year and the next year is hundred because we haven't changed anything this year. They're want to keep it uniform as much possible. And what will happen was kind of interesting is the moment. We don't have clear visibility into the twenty nineteen iphones yet like Minty. Quo said that he went back to give his report on the islands until quarter. Whereas before we always November. So that's now like January malt timeframe was still waiting for that. And if they follow the fan six series tradition again this year is going to look the same as the iphone ten right? Yeah. It's not going to be a design change after two years. These is fascinating. Okay. One more on this topic. And then we'll jump off. But do you think that? Well, a couple of things a lot of people. See thoroughly like if only the iphone at home by which kinda like confuses me. But okay, I'll take it or if it had headphone, Jack, which was the old complaint. Like now, we're going to bring that back a lot of people have their pet complaints that applying the situation they're saying see told you if I phones had this one thing I wanted then this wouldn't have happened. That's just going to happen. It's going to be out there on the side. But do you think that this you know, that like the board or should look at Tim Cook's performance and say like like question in this in this quarter? My guess is that it's look at the quarter as a single thing like. You have raise your eyebrows. But you don't make a judgment yet. And then you look at the pattern over the next few quarters, and you say okay, now, we're better or stable over in trouble. What do you think about Tim Cook's performance that led to this quarter? Yeah. If you know if you just pretend we don't know the financial results for second. I think the product line is in pretty good shape. Even accounting for the price increases. I think is a white bad lineup. They have in two thousand eighteen they didn't twenty seventeen personally, and I wasn't and that's and that's tempered by the idea of the tennis revisions again, you can look at like the Samsung phones, and they have plenty is where the designs and change. And so I don't think he's unreasonable to expect apple new hardwood is every single year. It's just not gonna happen. I think the court. Is. I think they're going to be right, right? Like the end of the day is billion four billion, right, then the outgoing business. There's no going to happen. Clearly, the guidance missing the guy, that's problematic. If they misguidance on the next quarter is going to be like five times worse. So I wonder if like the the next the invasive estimated when they do the core off if ready conservative just because they want to screw up again. Yeah. Yeah. So that's what you have to temper. I think this is pretty good. And I think we'll have to wait and see if other smaller manufacturers report similar declines in China, or if it's more of an apple specific problem, right? Because if the market if the Chinese market has slowed much than you should see other manufacturers have similar weaknesses and like apples percentage. Share the market shouldn't go down. It just means the overall number five so it went down. Yeah. Which is kind of the picture that trying to paint and slow, and if that tends out to be true, then I think people are just get on with it. If that's not true, then is more problematic. All right. But it will be like. We had similar parallels in twenty fifteen when it was like iphone units declining for awhile and revenue to quietly revenue went down your ear as well. And people said the same things about apple innovating and blahdy blahdy, and you get over and then you have two more years of ridiculous growth for a big company. Yeah. It's. This is definitely I think the worst is been missing the guidance amazing was worse than the decline if they actually predicted to decline it would have been fine realistically like the stuck still going down. But there's big much bigger water size to me that they couldn't know whether businesses going and so that is the biggest the biggest warning flag that we have to look out for. But I think apple going to be fine. Like, they might steady. They have another year of it being like rubbish, and then the Chinese economy will come back a little bit. And they'll have the new iphone lineup for the twenty twenty lineup. For instance. I'm probably by twenty twenty they would have announced plans for major changes to other products. Even the iphone with us like the MAC stuff. Whether it's a reverted glosses that kind of thing and people forget like the outrage of the of what we've seen the past week probably be going like it was definitely over. She think the stock market reaction was like the most time because they missed guidance by eight percent and the stock market's apple stock prices going down by eight percent. So it seems reasonable the Twitter reaction of the Hawaiian pricing. I think the pricing coming. This thing thing. Everything's too expensive is completely room. If you can come away and say Apple's products were appealing enough, and maybe they should have had more features ready for the tennis launch. I think that's a reasonable thing to come away from. But the pricing I think the current strategy with the pricing going out as to the levels we've seen it is annoying and upsetting for odd people buying it. But in general that businesses beginning penalty fine. So. Is going. Well, again, if you do it to you compare their up five billion dollars in revenue on this course. I think it'd be a right. Definitely. I think it's hard to argue that this ten cycle is like if you haven't iphone ten it's the least reason to upgrade ever. And that it's like last year, you got the the ten in like one of those homes way more advanced than the other one in like this year. One of those phone is very similar to the one from last year, and you pay the same price all over again or you pay more for the bigger one. It's like that's tough. But like, you know, part of the head is like that people with eights and sevens and older didn't binding phones. And that's that's a problem. But those are also people that didn't pay thousand dollars for a phone, you know, and the ten art, maybe, you know, they overshot there with with what they price it out. And there were you know, investors saw that there was some some earlier reports about the apple might of a wrong gamble there on the price of the tenora. They didn't go. It didn't hit it with that. And. But to me, it's like I feel like I could get way worse. But if it gets like, I said earlier, it would be obvious that it's because of China and policy and not like, Tim Cook's performance, and for that for that reason. It's like this quarter is tricky. But like it's going to be like a US problem or global problem for it to be Tim cook specific in the future. But like Apple's business could get hit way harder. But if it does, and it's because of China, we're going to see that more than just a letter like the company's having issues too. It's a little bit scared escape, it raises steaks and makes everything a little more interesting to watch too. I say. My long term like we love to like freak out about these like quality changes. But people forget it and in years to results if it doesn't result. No one's going to forget it exactly. The like the one blips are. Easily Palestine over in the long run is a very clearly tough economic mock name between the trade war stuff. Like the look at the stock market overrule light. Amazon was a trillion dollar companies lost year. Now, it's seven hundred billion to the big the big worldwide problems noticed Pacific. But if they start significantly losing Naga, Sharon, China, a clip, and then they didn't recover it. Obviously, that's bad. But if it's if it's a macroeconomic problem, then they should kind of just bow belong bit. And then went recovers they recovered. So. And one last thing mentioned on the battery program is if they ever say that that they shouldn't have done it. And I read bad a for long term loyalty, right? Like, I'm between Iowa's twelve making over phones, more performance and the bachelor program. They must have known that people are going to hold on like then Streep hid, right? And but the point is those customers are going to be more loyal than ever. And before that grade that the device that more likely to invest Napa services than more likely to buy apple watches or airports or ipads, oh, complimentary services and products and then down the road when it comes to upgrade again, they will buy new iphone because they've loved having fun for a long time. Whereas if you went the other way, and you upset people, and you screw people either they gonna jumped ship like a long term play and nowhere in this lead. Is it say that they made the remove there? They just admitting impact on the current course if they ever gone these his cO and say, oh the battery the battery program was a problem. And they use that line. We'd be very upset not something where it's like they're going to be mismanaged because you have to play alone turn low to hear like you say you say apple manages for the future, not an Tim Cook's away, saying the ninety day clips, never accurate representations. And then go and say things like the bachelor program is a problem. So. It seems in general like for me. I was twelve and the battery is fantastic people say, oh, Tim Cook's. Mismanaging apple like, go to ten era, and you'd say plenty of other problems who complain about complaining about it. Everything's buggy and everything's devices a slow. Everyone just moves to different different things to complain about as the time goes to write. But it's like. I don't think there's any things fundamentally wrong with the car management team as it stands. And adding on John Andrea is actually one of the biggest improvements they made the executive team as well recently. So hopefully. It's going to be rough. I'm sure and I don't think the China China China is going to be back into time. So we could go a whole year of life in decline, but as long as problems limited to the macroeconomic conditions anything else APPA were cover of intially. And makes me think too that apple does have. People in charge of China. Like, I'm not sure how to pronounce your name, but Isabelle gay gaming. Yep. Is vice president director of great China. They have one person in charge of China like that's only true for China. So. A team to work on that. And hopefully, you know that even if like boost that team than that speaks to me. And I imagine it's between investors to buy the mentioned the Barry thing the person that shared the. Airpower talk from an engineer's another person said that they heard that. I was twelve. Users saw two percent increase. Apple two percent increase in customers who can make it to the day without needed to recharge. Twelve so two percent. Two percent more people and made it to the day without having to recharge compared Iowa's eleven before. So it's nothing putting a story. Because of how the information was a tained as an interesting discuss on podcast piece of information. That's interesting because obviously, they never really marketed. I was trove as being a battery improvement. But if you do efficiency changes over the course of system, you're going to up to Mina power proves too, right? Right. So it's interesting in people seem to see that too and their use it seemed especially people the offer the battery life too. So it's it's interesting. Yeah. Everyone that buys a ten very happy with it. Well now that is the happier podcast for this week. And that being said we back next week. You can follow us on Twitter at Apollo Zach magician. You are bees day, and you can also follow him have MAC, you can Email us feedback. Happy hour at nine to five MAC dot com. And back this week by everybody.

Gossip, Chit-chat, and Basecamp: Q&A with Marty and Em

"Welcome to the no bullshit. Leadership podcast in a world where knowledge has become a commodity. This podcast is designed to give you something more access to the experience of successful. Ceo who has already walked off so join your host martin more who will unlock and bring to life your own leadership experiences and accelerate your journey to ladyship excellent hey there and welcome to episode one hundred forty two of the no bullshit leadership podcast. This week's episode gossip chitchat and base camp and other q. And i with him now. We usually do is once a month but there are two questions we got last week that we wanted to cover. Because one is really timely. I up on gotta take look at everything that's been happening over company base camp a few weeks ago based mc jason freed posted an update on his blog about the changes that would be happening at his organization. These changes included nomo. Societal political discussions on the company basecamp account. Nomo committees nemo three hundred and sixty degree reviews and a few other will covering these episode. One of our obt alumni drew wanted to hear my perspective on it. So i'll give that crack. Secondly we had a great question coming from longtime listener. Sophie was no where to draw the line between positive social chat and too much tame chat the waste time and reduces productivity. Now we felt this bit done q. And a. format so back with me today after only a one week break how are you i am phrasing today. We're just starting to say the stott beautiful australian winter. So i'm all wrapped up with the hater on. How's your wake thing. Yeah what's happening this week. So i was in city with you late last week and then up in canes on sunday Doing a speaking gig which was a heap of fan. And of course it was nice and warm up their trust me. But i'm loving being back doing in in-person speaking events after over year of virtual. Now i can be wrong. Virtual stuff sprite but nothing beats the energy of a room full of people and we had a great crowd day yesterday tired. And that's really when i see you at your best mahdi wayne. I would impact so many people in such a short amount of time standing up there on stage. I'm seeing those light bulb moments happening real time. So very very cool. Soy let's just jump into it straightaway money because we have so much to cover. I feel like this is going to be another bump episode. Oh certainly will. I got an email loss weight from one about leadership on the theory alumni drew. Who said. i'm sure you have a long list of things to cover. But while it's fresh. I would love to hear a special episode on what's currently playing out at base camp. What a fascinating series of events and opportunity to reflect on decision making and leadership actions. Now there's been a lot of opinions thrown around about this over the past few weeks especially linked in so. I thought why not. Let's throw your opinion into the ringtone muddy to stop this one off. Can you just give us a summary of the blog post for anyone who hasn't read it and then we can work through each of the points from their showroom. We'll we'll put jason's blog post in the show. And i'd say he is a quick summary now for background. Base camp is an american web software company that was founded by jason freed in nineteen ninety nine they predominantly known for the project management software that was launched in two thousand four and they one of the heavyweights when it comes to project management software alongside companies. Like asana and monday. Click up trillo luck. They wanted to be players on the twenty. Sixth of april freed released a public blog post updating his team and the world on the changes that he needs founder david honda. My son had decided to implement lockney the company to a product the constantly requires innovation in iterations to increase its performance. They decided to broadcast these changes in one fell swoop on the internet. And we'll have more about this lighter but any totally this resulted in a mess exodus of staff and in a pretty small company some say it amounted to a third of the employees of role. Now that's worth exploring a little to say. Fruits blog was that bed from ladyship perspective now. The six key organizational changes they called out wor- number one no more societal and political discussions on our company basecamp camp account number to no more paternalistic benefits. That's an interesting one. We're going to drill down on number three. No more committees bless my marhsall number four normal lingering or dwelling on past seasons number five number three sixty reviews and six no forgetting what we do so i figured way to cover. This is talk better few these and give you my view for. It's worth what he rican. Perfect let's get into it all right. Let's start with number one. No societal or political discussions on the company base camp a camp. Now i gotta tell you. I am one hundred percent point this one. I haven't really appreciated the trend of the last couple of years of ceos weighing into social issues at all levels and as an ex cio chief information officer. You can do all that stuff in your own time on your own dawn. I don't see it as a suppression of free speech but a reminder of the appropriateness of engaging this topic of discussion when supposed to be focusing on the work you do for the company. This is just a way of minimizing the focus on non work stuff in the workplace now. Obviously it's unreasonable to expect that there'd be no interaction between staff on social and political issues but it does remind people why they paid and free david says when it comes to number infrastructure philly boots. You can go as hard as you like. But just remember your boundaries and he also observes that deep disconnect between the red and blue sides of american politics moment which drives these conversations to as he said doc places. It sounds bit dramatic rod. So i'm saying look. That sounds pretty reasonable to me. As i said has nick cio. I used a lot of behavior modification stuff with people who for example downloaded inappropriate or pornographic material using company resources. And i'm not liking it too that these days. It seems a political discussion can be just as divisive and defensive as pornography was in the past so freed. Isn't banning the conversation just the use of company resources to facilitate it. Which i think's entirely reasonable. What are your name. yeah. I think just spot on here. It can be really distracting when the company channel is being dominated by that kind of stuff especially when it's likely that not everyone is going to be aligned because that can cause some seriously fiery conversations totally and then of course there's the question of who's actually monitoring that chat and making sure that thing sti- respectful because that's part of the company's obligation on company channels. So look i've got no problem with this one. I think that if it's become an issue for them ultimately it's going to be in the best interest of the staff and the organization and as the young co founders. That's up to them. What's the next one you want to cover monte number two no more paternalistic benefits now. What's a paternalistic benefit. Instead of giving virtue signaling benefits like gym memberships and wellness bonuses and allowances for further education. They've just been scrapped. And they converting them cash equivalents. Which are ricans awesome and campus. Creating a ten percent profit share pool for stuff to use on whatever they choose to use at home now. I've actually done something like this in the past when i went into energy They used to have free cookies around the kitchen. So that people have with a cup of tea and we figured it was pretty unhealthy. Having sweet biscuits weren't promoting health. So we replace them with fruit bowls. Now in retrospect. When i look at it i think maybe that was somewhat judgmental. Even though it was done with this intention. I wouldn't have been happy about your changing out the cookies for the free balls but i would have been thankful they'll let's face it tim tames but they were still pretty good once again from free perspective. I think this is awesome. Every person nuggets make an adult choice about what to spend their money on and it's a great benefit from base camp that very few companies match a caters to people in different stages of their life. So if you want to focus on your health you can still do that. You need the company directing you to that but if you want to do something different like put money into kid's college education. You can do that instead zone. Just not sure why anyone would been out of shape over that one. I think it's the principle of pulling away from virtue. Signaling is great eleven may completely agree and interestingly we've had quite a few students go through lippi on the theory who work in these big global tech companies where these paternalistic benefits are plenty. And i've often had them say to me. They referenced the fact that they actually can't or don't take the lunch breaks for yoga pilates or make use of the slate pods for often power naps. I really think will you do in your own time is up to you and i actually really liked this one. It sounds pretty empowering to me. Yeah yeah me too. I think they're on track so far. Let's have a correct three though. No more committees gonna tell you this is music is you might remember your uncle. My brother nick was on the board of athletics australia for many years and the australian sports commission to review in two thousand four hundred fifteen. I think and when the report was released into the state of track and field athletics australia. The structure of the various bodies that contribute to athletics is extremely complex but the review found that a proliferation of committees was set up to govern theory. She's in the sport. And every time a significant issue arose the board set up a subcommittee to deal with it and they had over sixteen of these at the time when they were reviewed the review described them as being used for the ju- purpose of consultation with stakeholders and also oversight of operational issues in that area. And the look at it. And you know this will with me. Committees kill accountability. You end up with this. All canine responsibility approach and decision-making slows to glacial speed. It just becomes a war of attrition really trying to find a compromise that everyone can live with and always delivers an inferior dot com to having a singularly accountable decision maker who's accountable for going and doing consultation bringing it back making sense of it and then making decision moving on cement. Black comedian decision. Making by consensus will kill any chance. You have of getting organizational momentum and performance so qassam. I'm totally fine with these. People are accountable for getting it done You enable them you impel them you hold them to account for living they remit and of course it doesn't preclude consultational gardens. It focuses it through the cannibal. Person said nothing gets bogged down in process and bureaucracy and the handled by the prisoners being paid to handle it and they boston holds them to account from taking the appropriate amount of consultation based on the risk and materiality of whatever that deliver beliefs. So i'm on behind it all the way i feel like all i'm doing in this episode is agreeing with you as expected. Feels like a bit of a stitch but yup. I'm into this one as well. I really like what he said. In the blog post it's back to basics back to individual responsibility back to work. That sounds like a strong accountability. To may let's do one more. Look the one the one after that is no more three hundred. Sixty degree reviews now. This one i'm sure about. I can say free it's point And there are some real problems with three hundred sixty degree reviews about. Let's just go into this will be tape it because on not completely aligned with him for those of you don't know a three hundred sixty degree review is where you get fade back in a structured way from people all around you. That's the three hundred sixty degree point. So you'll boss. Your ps a the people who work for you directly no tame and sometimes even externals like customs all supplies depending on how far you want to go but basecamp introduces a few years ago and freight field aside. They'd made things worse rather than making them better because he said it made feedback harder now. This is weird. But i completely get where he's coming from. The problems with three hundred sixty degree reviews is for. Stop this bias in respondents so these boys in the choice of respondents. Who do i choose to give me feedback. And most people aren't going to go out and get someone that they think is going to give him negative reviews for start so it's already and it's already whited the wrong way. The second thing is the anonymity of the review so people fill out a survey sometimes quite extensive hundreds of questions lasting half an arable and because they know the operating under anonymity they will say things that they wouldn't necessarily say to someone's face a bit trawling but this flies both ways sometimes. They'll say things that are really really harsh that they would normally say and other times. They went far enough because they'll feel are well. You know. I can't really tell mighty. He's a decode better. Be nice to win and so you don't always get this genuine response. I think it's used for pure system more than anything else. freed actually might communist blog that he thought the peer assessment was useless. Because people are always gonna say flattering things. But i don't think that's the case in my experience and when it comes to your boss like you should know about you. Bosses feedback already. Even though i guess sometimes it's not the case however look it's useful to pick up on trains nap. He was through expert application of the human synergistic illinois model that i discovered my early tendency to value perfection over excellence and you might find this hard to believe him. I'm all about excellence bit. You pass that trait onto. May i think a probably did you too can fix it broad but i tested over the years a couple of years apart i could see this shifting based on my conscious efforts to change so excited the trained in an over reliance on perfectionism at the expense of results to shift in that completely so that perfection wasn't important to me and the excellence and achievement focus to getting results was that was super super valuable so for me that helped me to change something that really made a difference to my fitness as a leader But you know. Hey they're also time consuming. There is always intensive and sometimes leaders think that as long as they're giving these three hundred sixty degree feedbacks. That's it that's all any to do. And that's the only feedback. They need to engage but we know the day to day stuff in the leadership. Dialogue is infinitely more important. What leads used to hide behind anonymity with comments either so in so far as free wants to put the emphasis on the need for latest to give free flowing feedback. That doesn't require paperwork. Btk rod three six people think that this is the feedback mechanism when the to day feedback is infinitely more important and i think fritz defense organization size is quite important to take into account in large organizations. There's definitely a place for three sixty reviews. This also plays for former performance management assessment at least annually peripheral more frequently and talent management processes also served the company. Really well as it grows. You know what people want to know three things. What are your expectations off me. How much performing against his expectations and was my future. Hold and all of that can be wrapped up in that framework so to speak. So i'll give free to pass monkey six thirteen all right so it sounds like you're pretty comfortable with the new policies. What about the actual execution. Good point execution to arable. If it's true that the first anyone who these new policies was via his public blog they obviously has some serious issues. That's underway way to implement. Change any change. You want to make around. The people side of the business needs to have explicit implementation and change path don't within both groups innings once now freed apparently held a meeting a few days after this missive that pushed employee of the age for some they said it was the final nail in the coffin working for founders. Who didn't care what employees thought and suppress the views and opinions which is sort of weird wrought that doesn't come through in the style that freed wrought scene but it also reminds me of our episode thirty one years ago of bush leadership which was. Don't shoot the messenger and if you remember that one. That was about the culture at their loss. The company that managed to cover up a huge for award for several years and they some really savvy investors into party with huge dollars to back the company. Now like theranos with basecamp who never know what truly went on. It's almost impossible to know what a couch his really like. Until you work in it but you know freed was generous to the end. He offered superb financial packages to those who chose to leave giving his blessing and hope that i have a future like. He seems like he's done. Everything brought and i must say. I love this approach. We only want people who really want to be here. And if you don't wanna be let's okay. I'll talk more about communication shortly. So i think sophie's question touches on this to absolutely. I think you dealt with that superbly. Mati offense good deep dive. Well there's been so much talk about it on linked in in various social platforms. Are i think it was important to kind of go through some of those points and really dig out the meanings behind them. So i think that was really good. And we might. We might have just kicked off a whole new thread on. Lincoln withdrew depending on what he thinks. Dances hydro you might say all right. Let's get onto sophie's question now so if he asked when to social chat moved from a positive thing improving culture to a negative thing with waste of time and lost productivity that that. How can i address excessive chatting in my tame fully this a little bit simpler than the last one. Thank you First of all. Why do we have social work. And i'm a believer in the fact that it is really really important. So it's therefore a bonding between team members for human connection identification with the values. It's basically an essential part of the workday and one of the things a little lost in the covert world of remote working in zoom meetings. I think is very thing however we need to be careful not to overdo it and sophie's question hits this at its core. The happy workers are productive workers. Myth many latest will write the value of social chat. And they'll put no boundaries at all around instead of a positive interlude between work blocks it becomes the reason for people attending the work environment and productivity suffers coordination on imagine just because staff. Mark be happy chatting. It doesn't mean this enables them to do better work for the company and in fact in my experience it's normally the opposite. I've even heard latest described a teams. And you'll appreciate this. Because you know who. I'm talking about as hard performing teams when they have a high degree of connected jovial social chat amongst the team members. This apparently seem to promote collaboration and cooperation between team members and deliver bitter results. Bullshit absolute absolute bullshit. Iv mati so. What is excessive chatting like. How can you tell the difference between a really knit culture and one that is just to social it. Seems like a fine line. Yes it is but by the same token if you leave. Assad the symptom in the chad is the symptom of the culture and get to the root cause it becomes a little clear. You've got to go back to performance. Always ultimately you can't mench performance based on inputs serve example time has been on certain activities only outputs value delivery quality effectiveness of results. So for some people whose performances sub-standard i'd have very little tolerance for them spending a lot of time around the water cooler chatting but for high-performance living really well they get hates more latitude and ultimately you have to deal with this on an individual basis and feedback has been given as to what your expectations are so aren't think there's a blanket rule for this at all but if you are setting the targets for you people and stretching them to achieve their outcomes you can't go wrong. They won't have time to spend too much day in gossip and chit chat and if you see him talking too much we'll up the ante give them more work reason the needful than to produce and get them back on task. It's always a judgment call super interesting. So let's say that we've worked out that our culture coaches to social what happens next. How do we put an into it without being highlighted all in all the chatty kathies turn against us yes and i don't think this is too how this also relates back to the point. I was making earlier about base camp. When you're going to make a change it's just a simple matter of communicating at the right way. So if you're going to change anything make it explicit. Expect people to catch on because they may not and the first thing is make sure you've got to reason for changing and a purpose in mind for the result you've got to have that a catalyst also good. Why the change and why now. What's prompted you to make that change now. So i would always have. I was gonna make a change about the way it team works together. I just have a small group meeting. Nothing really formal. I just call them together and say hey goes on notice being a lot of time spin around the water cooler at the moment shedding. And i know you're in some to really interesting and you won't have lots of conversations together but really let's focus back on work. Shall we not having a chat but you know hey keep it to a small rural and keep it under control and so i do that in a group setting just to make sure that i've got the general outline and after that i'd have one on one meetings with individuals particularly decide to the high performs. Hey look i know it's not you right. You're producing brilliantly. Just the other guys on each put some boundaries around the because they're not doing as well as you and they've gotta get task again but it's not about you might it's about team or if someone who's a real problem wasn't living at all i'd actually use that as an opportunity to say in one sense. Look you're not producing what is supposed be producing it. The best of times spending too much time wasted talking about social medicine have nothing to do with work. That's not helping your. You actually need to be doing your work and getting their produce and if you can get that done fantastic talk as much as you like. But i really need you to focus down on that. So there's the group element is the one on one element but you got to be pretty strong to do this. No one wants to be a killjoy. As you said and this is where the leaders need to really pull on that respect before popularity. Mantra say you take issues into one territory and then you can debate it more. Easily and appropriately But be tip always come from the direction results or lack of them rather than behaviors. Which is too much cheddar. Get to the root cause not the symptom. Now we've had this conversation. I think that tash probably thinks that. I'm too chatty in the. I'll have to make sure that my results are on point that i'm kept extra busy. We've covered so much in this episode. Thank you for the great questions. Drew and sophie. If you ever want to send a question through or theme that you'd like us or something that is topical email us at hello at uci mental dot com or. Send us a direct message on any of our social channels. We love taking questions so much fun. Yeah thanks and that brings us to the end of episode one hundred and forty two.

Who'd be interested in these topical things and guys as away if you haven't subscribed to or right to the podcast. Please take a minute to do. It means so much to us. It helps us reach more latest from all over the world. And that's what we are about. Thanks for having me on again. Mahdi i promise that i wouldn't crash the podcast in another two weeks notice. Thanks him and i'm going to look forward to next week's episode believing your own bullshit until in now you take every opportunity you can to be a no bullshit leader.

Episode 67: Buying A Used Scat Pack (Part 1)

"Welcome to episode number sixty seven on this episode. We have project the week high-performance parts listeners stories and over a year ago on episode ten i talked about buying a modern challenger for my fortieth birthday but as i sit here approaching thirty six. My mind has changed and currently shopping for something. Different being a dad has made me realize that. I need something that is practical convenient and fun so now i'm looking for a scat pack charger. We're gonna talk about that. But because i'm such a fan of all aspects of the car business. I thought it would be fun to talk about the fun test drive. I took an escape. Pack charge over the weekend. Why didn't buy it and how. I inspect a used car after learning many lessons from all the cars i've purchased in the past as well as working in auto body shops and service shops. This is actually going to be a two part podcast as well with this being part number one on the next episode which will be part to. I'm going to talk about my tips and tricks when you get back to the dealership and step inside to talk numbers so you don't get taken for a ride. There's just a lot of things that people overlook when buying cars or maybe they're just not aware of so. I thought it would be fun to talk about that. And hopefully save you a couple of bucks on your next purchase so without further ado if you are a mo- pont who's iast and you are in the right place. Don't go anywhere you're tuned into the best mo- part doozy's driven podcast on planet earth. And i'm your host chris. Albrecht better known as the mopey hunter. And this is talking. Mo- parse listening to talking mo- parks with the more car. Hunter your direct medicine all things. This week's project car of the week was posted on the mo- part hundred facebook page on monday. January eighteenth at twelve pm. Let's read the ad nineteen seventy-one plymouth settlement seabrook plus two door hardtop project car. Seven thousand nine hundred and ninety five dollars. Nineteen seventy-one plymouth. Satellite seib plus two door hardtop project car. It does not run or drive at this time and has three quarter rear end and a va auto that turns over but will need a car rebuild. An a tune-up before it will run. The engine has low mile. Since a rebuild it has a roadrunner power bowl hood. This is offered for sale as a restoration project and not as a driver in needs complete restoration. Please see pictures. It will not be sold with the wheels entire shown in the pictures it will be sold with. Factory steel wheels. It has a small rest. Hold down low behind the rear tire and it has minor rust issues in other areas. The body has a number of small dense and imperfections. The dash has rust. The floorboards and trucker good. The windows are stuck up the interiors all there but needs to be restored and cleaned. The passenger door is stuck shut and will not open. It has been sitting for an extended period of time. The brakes do not work. The car may have been yellow as there is a lot of yellow color showing through. It needs paint. It will have all four tires. It rolls and can be winched onto a car. Hauler the interior and exterior of this car. He's a full restoration job. It has normal imperfections common of fifth year old car when restored. It is sure to attract attention. Any cleaning or restoration will be left up to the buyer. The picture show the condition of this vehicle. If you have a specific concern please ask i will consider a trade for an excavator or skid steer title status is clean all right folks so i started looking at the level of reach and engagement for these project cars that i post on the moped hundred facebook page and this satellite was actually really really popular reaching over one hundred thousand people and something like over eighteen thousand people engaging with the post in some sort of way so this is just one of those beaters that you know i say beaters with love that i really see making a great ratty street machine. It's got a ton of potential. But i do think. The price needs to drop significantly for it to be taken seriously. It's it's really nice on staggered. Turbine wheels with a really nice. Rake but as stated in the ad the wheels don't come with which is super unfortunate because they really helped make the look of the car so remind i'd have to immediately get some wheels to bring the car back to how it looks in the pictures. I do like the later roadrunner hood. that's on it. it's got hood pins it. Looks mean and i believe the hood on this car is only available on seventy three and seventy four roadrunners. It's got the power bulge in the center. And the two front facing scoops. I think it fits. The overall look of this car really really good. The interior cracked me up because this thing has shag carpet on the floor and those absolutely garbage see covers. The original color looks to be white and the years have definitely taken their toll on this car's interior but i just can't stop looking at the shag carpet and actually i see what they're trying to accomplish here. They cut out square pieces of shag carpet to use as floor mats. I think i've seen this before. That's really funny and to be honest it's a little messy but you gotta do what you gotta do. I guess one thing that was pointed out on the common thread for this car is that this car is said to be a c- bring plus but the c. Bring plus is supposed to have a rally gauge cluster. This one does not have that. So the c- bring plus replace sports satellite in plymouth's lineup and seventy one but it only lasted another year and then died In seventy three. I believe or by the time. Seventy-three came around. And it's funny. If you look into the sea bring plus you could option it out to basically be a roadrunner. It's got standard bucket seats. The rallye gauges optional hood pins optional. Big block you know in a bunch of other stuff. Of course the roadrunner was the budget performance. Car and equip similarly would probably be cheaper than the state bring plus so i thought that was pretty interesting but anyways the car needs a lot of work as most radhi mo- parse do but you could get running you know throw some wheels and tires on it and beat the hell out of it just to have fun with it. That's what these ratty mope ours are all about. You know it's not about how deep your pockets are. It's about how deep your passion for these cars is. No matter what condition they're in and as you guys know i love ratty pieces of junk you know what i mean and i say pieces of junk with love. These cars are cool. And it's just nice to see him back out on the road and not rotting in somebody's backyard or something. You know what. I mean but that was project the week. The nineteen seventy-one plymouth. Satellite seabrook posted on the mope hundred facebook page on monday january. Eighteenth at high noon. Nomo par left behind. This week's high performance part belongs to the nineteen sixty nine and a half h dodge super bee featured in the music video for the song. First date by blink. One eighty two about a minute into this video. We see a red nineteen. Sixty-nine superbeets and not much can really be seen aside from the bright red. Paint the steel wheels and what looks to be vented. Police poverty caps and the liftoff hood sitting on the roof of the car. It's pretty neat to see a twelve on tv. Other than you know a bear jackson or mecum auction. So i thought this one deserves some recognition. Not much to say other than it's probably one of the actually. It probably is the only a twelve super be ever featured music video. I would love to know if there's another one and i'll make that a high performance part too. But that was this week's high-performance part the nineteen sixty nine and a half a twelve dodge super bee featured in the music video for the song. First date by blink. One eighty two. It's time once again for listener stories. This week's listener story was again more of a message and it was sent in to us again from our buddy tad with the super in california here is tad's message tad has just listening to this. Most recent podcast About the van. Just actually getting through part of it. That i wanted to stop and and i was gonna read an email but i thought i'd give you a call First of all almost had to reach out to you and stiff. You're okay. i was a little worried. I hadn't seen the podcast in a while but Anyway really appreciating u continuing goodness and listening to them The other thing. I wanted to stay at listened to my story on your podcast and it wasn't meant this way. I don't think he took it this way. But when i listened to a man. I'm really hounding this guy. I'm really beating them up. And it's like that wasn't the point that i was super excited for you and and You know pushing me a little bit see if you get anyway Sorry to hear that sold. I i get it with the thing also. I live in every neighborhood in california's nature but I live in one now and prior to that of acres. Only problem there is. That didn't have a shop and it's impossible to build in california so i moved to a house with a double wide to card double garage something a quad garage which i have totally still accent right now with my pain booth and everything outta i get. It had sixty five to my house for a while and the driveway. I mean covered up with a car. Cover and i got a letter from the way that that i had to move my nuisance vehicle so i called him and i'm like why is it a nuisance hickel. And she's well if you watched it and wash the windows and clean it up a little bit. Make liberal better. I think it'd be okay. And i said It's covered up with a car cover. So how how do you even know that the windows are dirtier the paints dirty. So i get an ankle sock The other thing. Oh your motivation for your i way with the super v events been six years and finally when all the kids are down they're gone. Everyone's they're john. I go to work on walk in the garage. And look at it. And i start thinking about the entire project. And it's so easy to get you know debated or word but Unmotivated so i stepped back. I just realized i say to myself. I don't start again finish. So i do the whole. How do you eat an elephant thing. And i just pick one thing and i go in and start working on it and before i know i've forgotten how frustrating her or you know. Unmotivated i am i. I'm in the project i'm working on. It turns out to be a great day so If you walk out there and you're not motivated or overwhelmed. Just just start to do something and start. Kinda fight through that little bit of of Frustration or whatever. And i guarantee you once you get going into something get a little workout so down Starting from winded here. I'm out walking the dog but I think you should even hang onto it. It's easy to get motivated or frustrated or just things sitting. But i'll tell you now that i've seen for be painted and have all the parts back on parts exciting and i'm also realizing how many little pieces and parts and things. I still have to get clean and then another level of frustration but just realizing how long it's gonna take but anyway keep going love the podcast looking forward to the new year and supporting here Your other endeavor though the youtube video so good january and we'll We'll be listening to your guest basement. Haitao thanks for the words of encouragement man and please understand that. It is truly appreciated. You know i sit here listening to you talk and all i can think of is manny's right you know. How am i supposed to finish something. If i can't even start it you know. And i've started both of my projects my truck and my dart but it's just getting to the getting the ball rolling especially when i have so much stuff going on but you know that's not be complaining. That's just me being real. I'm going to get out there. I'm gonna take your advice. And i'm going to go out there and i'm just going to pick one thing on my truck to do and one thing on my dr to do and i'm going to give myself a little deadline and i'm just gonna do it so thanks man. I really appreciate those words. And you know. I recently got an email from ross in australia dodgy ross and he kind of beat me up a little bit so i mean it was. He beat me up so much. So that i wasn't too sure that i even wanted to share with everyone here on the podcast is because i'm like i don't know if anyone wants to hear that. But his email basically pointed out some of my own faults as far as my own projects go and he was questioning how long people would continue to listen to the show. If i'm always talking about what. I wish i was doing and you know what i wish. I had done. Things like that and he questioned my content. And if i'm being honest here you know it's a little you know when somebody attacks your work like that you know and i don't think he meant it as an attack you know he. He meant it as some honest criticism. And i appreciate that. So ross don't think that. I'm throwing shade at you right now. But the point i'd like to make is on one hand. He's absolutely right with what he said. And on the other hand. I to defend myself. You know i'm overwhelmed. And it's clear with how it has affected my scheduling lately so first and foremost tad to you and everyone else. Who has a loyal listener to this. Show ross. I thank you guys all for your patients consideration while i get back on track here and you know start cranking away on my projects and start getting back on track with this podcast. It's just not easy to juggle. You know being a content creator and having projects you know and being a dad you know. These aren't excuses. This is just my reality. But i know that. The way to mitigate some. My frustrations is to combine the two. So i'm now working out a plan for how i'm going to be able to incorporate my projects into video content and bonus podcast so hopefully in doing that. I'll be able to hold myself accountable for what i'm able to get done every week from here. Moving forward but i do wanna say to people that may be tired of hearing me talk about my plans and the things that i'm working out. Not only you know in my head but public here on the show. I've always wanted to keep this podcast real and stay true to myself. Even if i'm uncomfortable admitting my own faults and weaknesses like i am here now. You know. I guess a part of me is just always hoped that you guys would stay along for the ride and ride shotgun with me through these trials and tribulations that i go through in my personal life you know as it relates to mow pars in this podcast so to those of you who are not interested in that you know i completely get it. I'm podcast fan myself. And sometimes i take a break from podcast. Only to come back later and catch up and you know realize. Oh yeah i miss this guy. But i hope that some of these days for the ride but i want you to know that i'm going to continue doing what i've been doing because this is all about evolving and growing this show into something fun for all like minded moped suzy's so i hope that's you. I hope you guys keep listening. And i've said before that if you listen to the show. I consider you a friend and it would suck to hear that. I lost anybody as a listener because of my own personal shortcomings but that's the price. I'm willing to pay if it means staying true to myself staying honest and giving you guys a little window into my personal life pertaining to mow pars even if it doesn't make me look like a mo part hero you know. Sometimes i'm sure you guys are sitting there on the other end and going god. He's an idiot you know and that's cool. I don't mind that i get it. But i'm hoping that i can still relate to some of you or in some cases even motivate you to get going on your own projects even while i struggle with mine. You know i've had people send me messages. Like hey chris thanks for you. Know lighting that fire under me to get going on my stuff. And i'm just like gosh whereas the fire when i need you know what i mean but my reality now is that i am committing to getting these projects going and having you guys along for the ride. That's what i'm gonna do. So that's what we're doing tad thanks for the message and encouragement and ross. Thank you as well. It means a lot that you guys take the time out of your day to let me know what's going on in your mind you know. Let's be real here every episode. I asked you guys to send in your stories. Questions comments complaints suggestions. And then everything else on your mine so for me to be offended by what anyone says to me if even if it's harsh criticism or just honest criticism or feel bad about what you guys send me would be a slap in your faces so if you guys reach out to me in any type of way i appreciate you and i want to know how you guys are feeling about the show so i appreciate when people reach out to me and tell me oh i love this show. What do you love about it. You know Hey man last week's episode kind of sucked you know. This is why you know that stuff helps me get better content to you guys so you know. Sometimes i need a wake up call and sometimes i need a fire lit under me to wake me up to and get moving on all these tasks that i have at hand but i'm human sometimes. I just need a buddy to reach out. Get some good advice or constructive criticism. You know what i mean. So tad no sweat buddy. I know you meant well As far as the van goghs. And i appreciate you sending in your initial opinions on the van but unfortunately it just wasn't in the cards and that's okay but i'll tell you what though the van that my buddy stacey has is not going anywhere until i go get it so. My mind is at ease about that. That van is definitely happening. It's not going anywhere. It's coming to me and i don't know if i mentioned this or not but i'm planning to go get it on. The week of my birthday. Took the week of my birthday off of work. So i could spend a day and go meet stacey and person and see his projects and get the van. Pick up the van. So that'll be a fun. Little road trip that i will document so look forward to that but thanks again for dropping me a message tad that was really sound advice. And i'm glad to hear that you're doing good on your superbeet. I'm going to apply everything that you said to my current and dodgy ross from down under thanks for giving me another perspective on the show man. I really appreciate it. I understand that listeners.

Whether good or bad and i respect both of you guys for being real with me and for listening. That was listener stories. If you want to hear your story or in this case message on the show you can do that by emailing me or leaving me. A voice mail that i will play on the show. My email is chris at talking. Mo- parts dot com and the number to call for voicemails is two zero nine. Twenty eight mo par. I look forward to sharing your our stories and messages. All right folks now. That might therapy. Session is over and thank you for listening for those of you. That have been tuning in. Since the early episodes you might recall on episode ten. Where i was talking about buying myself. A new wide body scott pack challenger for my fortieth birthday. Well no big surprise here folks. My mind has changed. I realized that for my current family situation a challenger is probably not the best choice right now and when i think about a newer challenger if i'm gonna get one i'd like to just go big with a hell cat of some sorts. You know instead of just the scott pack even better. If i could find myself in a position where i could buy a challenger superstock or gosh. Ah demon would be amazing. But i'm not counting counting on that but the decision has been made to instead start shopping for a deal on a used scott pack charger initially with the new chargers like many others. I felt personally attacked by hutch. You know like how. Could you put the charger name on a sedan. But after driving one. I completely understand. The car is perfect in fact i can now comfortably say that. I'm glad the charger is a four-door because had it been a door we may have not got the chance to see the challenger come back and have the success that it has the challenge a huge success. And so is the charger. You know even if it is a four door sedan I'm not sure if it would have the same success. If it was a two door you know that might be controversial for me to say. But i want to go ahead and say it. I think the charger four door is a hit. You know and. I know there's a lot of guys out there that hate it but you know i like i said at first i was like man. What the hell are they doing four charger. But now that i've driven one inexperienced one. I get it. It makes perfect marketing sense. You know and i can say now that would dodge did was absolutely great marketing. They've created an american muscle sedan. Now you know of course. Like i said two-door charger would have been cool. But these chargers sedans are absolutely amazing. And i will never look at them the same again but when i start shopping for a car to purchase from a new and used car dealership i always spend time doing market research. I wanna know what cars are available in the area and the surrounding areas. And what they're currently priced at the research. Part of my process is just as important as the buying process. Because i want to go into the experienced armed with all the information. I'm going to need to avoid being bent over when it comes to signing on that dotted line. You know what i mean but these cars are still reasonably priced. They're super to drive and by going with a used one. I can avoid that. Depreciation hit that. You take when you drive a brand new car off the lot so that was my thinking when i decided to shop for a used one and that said these cars seem to hold their resale value very well. It's actually hard to find a low mileage example in my area in the low thirty thousand dollar range. Which is what i thought i was going to be expecting when i started shopping. But it seems like. I'm going to be spending somewhere in the mid to high thirties for one. Maybe even dip into the forties a little bit. But you know. I'm okay with that. I if i'm going to be spending. You know high thirties low forties. You know give me a base model new one. You know what i mean. But the only issue. I've had was that i've only ever driven new challenges. Never a charger so first things first. I had to go find one to take for a spin. So what i did was some research and i found that there was a serious lack of selection in my local area. Which is north of seattle. And that surprised me. But i'm in no hurry to purchase so i just picked a few that fit my needs and decided to start with the one closest to me and it just happens to be the one in the list. That intrigued me. The most so. I thought the car presented will and was in the right price range where i needed it to be and i set out to check it out. The one i found was a two thousand seventeen charger. Scat pack with twenty seven thousand miles on it listed at just under thirty seven thousand. I think it was like thirty six and a half it was painted white knuckle and had the dynamics package which meant it. Had the big six piston brembos breaks in the front. And the twenty nine and a half inch satin. Black hell cat wheels. It had tinted windows and it just looked great. I love the look of the car. So i went to the dealer to check it out. Now let's get to the fun part driving the car i get to the dealer. I'm looking at the car. Salesman comes out and throws the usual couple questions you know what brings the in today. Are you planning on trading anything in. Are you going to be financing. You're paying cash all these questions. I don't like to answer I'm not a jerk about. I'd say you know. I don't know yet still decide. I'm just looking at the car thirty seconds. I don't need to be answering questions. So i think he kind of got that vibe said let me go grab the key so i was like all right good. I can get a look at this car without a salesman breathing down my neck because you know all the salesmen out there i get it. You got a job to do but you know come up with some creative they always come to you with the same thing the same set of and i'm like can i just look at the car if i wanted to let you know you. You don't have to sell me on the car. But all i have to say when it comes down to actually driving these things is wow now. I know why so many people love him. I was not expecting the car to move as well as it did. You know and the challengers i've driven you know. They were pretty impressive for being big cars but with the charger. I don't know just seemed to me like it would feel bigger. I wasn't expecting that. Khartoum move like it. Did you know that's just me being honest. And i'm not saying that i stretch cars legs a little during the unaccompanied test drive. But i'm also not saying that i didn't you know after all who takes a car and test drive in dozen at least drive it the way they would if it was. There's you know what i mean. So i'll say this from seventy miles an hour to the moon. The car polls like a monster you know. And that's subjective. You know if you're talking about a hell cat or something doesn't pull like a hell cat but for a bone stock family sedan. If that's what we want to call it a sport sedan a performance a performance four vehicle. This thing was a blast you know. And just the when you're at seventy miles an hour and you stab the throttle. This thing throws in your seat. At least that's what it did to me. That's what it felt like. Maybe it just. Because i haven't driven something fast in a while. But you know this normally aspirated. Four hundred eighty five horsepower. Six point four liter hemi with four hundred seventy five pound feet of torque. Really put a smile on my face. That thing surprised me with how manageable it was higher speeds. The car just did not feel like a land yacht you know so many people say they're you know the big girls they're heavy. Whatever you know for me. I thought it was very powerful. Complete blast to drive. You know like. I said one quick stab of that throttle and your slammed into the seat. It was really fun. I wasn't expecting it to be that fun. You know but needless to say. I was impressed and i was immediately sold as soon as i the first five minutes of driving this car i was like i'm getting one of these Maybe not that particular one. But i definitely my mind was made up at that point. I'm getting scant pack charger. At least you know. They're just so fun to drive. But i'm sitting there driving this thing and i'm just smiling and i'm thinking to myself. You mean to tell me that. I have a family car and a performance car at the same time boy. That's having my cake and eating it too and it makes my stomach hurts so good. But i'm taking this car for a spin. And i decide to drive it home. You know to see how it looks in my driveway and to also get a good look at the car without a salesman breathing down my neck trying to get me inside to talk numbers. Because that's what they that's what they do. You know ask you those first introductory questions and then they'll let you take it for a spin and then as soon as you get back. They're going to get you inside the dealership. Because then they have you you know they. They got control of the situation. You know. I like to say yeah. Yeah in a minute. You know what i mean. I i like to keep looking at the car just to make sure before i before i go in there and see any numbers i wanna make sure. There's something that i really wanna commit to. 'cause i don't wanna waste somebody's time and i don't wanna waste my own time so before i even step foot in that dealership which i you know. Part of me loves the car. Buying process and part of me hates it. The part of me that hates it is like go away and let me look at the car. If i want to buy it will walk in there and find you. You know what i mean and the other part of me is like okay like the car. Let's go let's go see where the numbers are at so that you can just walk out now. You know what i mean. Or if or if i should stay and maybe we can work a deal but when i get this thing to my house the first thing i do is i pop the hood open the trunk and the doors and i just start looking at the thing like i said it was a two thousand seventeen with only twenty seven thousand miles on it so you know i'm a. I'm expecting it to be clean. I'm expecting it to be good. But i just wanted to do my due diligence. Because you know you wanna get as good of a look at the car as you can and unfortunately you know this was this was nighttime. So that's a horrible time to buy a car. So i brought it home because i have a little bit better lighting and to be on if if i'm being one hundred percent honest i wasn't planning on buying that car that night even if the deal looked good i from now on. I'm trying to sleep on these things. I'd like to sleep on the deals before. I design away and if the car gets sold the car gets sold you know. There's a million scott. Pack chargers out there but i just wanna do my due diligence. So this is how. I do a basic inspection on a car whether it be used or even new ones. You never know some new cars if you've got a lineup of ten cars and you just grab one and you're like okay. I'll take that one and you start looking at it. you know. take a good look at it. You never know you know. Maybe it was getting pulled off the trailer and you know something happened underneath it. You know you just take a look at the car. So that's what i was doing. And when i do a basic inspection on a car that i'm considering buying i started the back and work my way forward checking everything you know panel fit. I'm looking for dings dense. Previous paintwork even swirl marks in the paint you know how is his car washed was the guy or gal who owned it. Were they taken it through those automatic car washes and just beating the hell out of it where they going through those self serve car washes where you take the brush that everybody else is used on their dirty cars. And then you scrub your car. And then you get scratches all over. And swirl marks. That's the kind of stuff i'm looking for just to see you know twenty seven thousand miles on this thing. It was pretty clean. You know the paint. It could use a little paint correction nothing too big but you know a good buff would be good for the car and it was white. Which kinda surprised me. As far as seeing all the swirl marks in it. Because i was like you know i'm used to seeing bats swirl marks in black but white. I used to work at a detail shop where we did nothing but white vehicles because we were reconditioning. Construction vehicles know mostly vans and trucks and they were all white so i i'm used to seeing a really clean white because i actually took pride and making those things look as good as they. Could you know polishing. Turds what. I was doing there but you know so i'm checking. I'm checking this car out over all condition Like i said. I started the back. So i had the trunk up so what i do. Is i just kinda. Take a take a general look at the trunk. I lift up the trunk insert. I inspect for leaks and anything that looks like the vehicle had possibly been rear ended and had a repair at some point. I'm looking for anything out of place. i love to see it. Looks untouched like okay. They never they never had to pull any of this stuff out. Maybe they didn't even lift this thing up. So i like seeing that. So you know with twenty seven thousand miles. I wasn't surprised to see that it was really clean and basically untouched. That to me is a good sign and the panel fit. Men in the rear was good. The rear bumpers showed no signs of replacement or repair and there was no. There was no body. Dekom smell in the trunk so assuming. The car wasn't involved in various activities. I shut the trunk. And i moved on after a quick check of the underside of the bumper. But when i look under the bumper of these cars. That's just my quick way of seeing if it's ever been hooked to a reckless tow truck or something like that you know you never know what you're gonna find underneath the car and sometimes it can tell you a lot about it but i found nothing concerning so i decided to keep moving forward and i started to check the door jams for signs of masking for paint work or anything else out of the ordinary. The process really doesn't take long at all going door to door unless you're super nitpicky and can be depending on the vehicle but this one you know it presented really well and it was really clean so i was just basically planning on doing a quick inspection to see if maybe there had been you know kids in the back or a lot of wear from frequent passengers on the and stuff like that. The car was clean. Ask a low mileage news. Car should be the front part of the interior was in good shape too with basically no significant where to the driver seat which is nice because you know. Some people are just reckless when they get in and out of cars and they wear that side. Bolster getting in and out of the car all the time they wear it down in that part of the seat always looks like crap after a few months. So it's nice to see that this one was in pretty decent shape. So as i'm going door to door and i shut each door. I check for quick panel thin and make sure everything looks good. And then i start working my way. Forward taking a look at gaps between the doors and fenders. Oh and you also want to take a look at the rockers just to make sure you know maybe somebody had to jack it up at some point. They did a really reckless job. So things like that is just basic stuff you know. Just look at the car but everything looked good. You know the gaps between the doors in the fenders looked good and i had already popped the hood so with the hood open. I started taking a look in the engine. Bay and one thing. I like to check is the bolts that attach the hood and the fenders. The hood bolts looked clean and untouched. But lo and behold the bolts to the driver's side fender had paint worn off as if they had been previously removed. This was concerning to me. Because i you know i think is okay. This fender has been taken off at some point. So i saw that. I immediately checked them all. And all the driver's side bold showed signs of removal. I jumped over to the passenger side and sure enough. Same thing on that site as well. The paint was worn off of the bolts. So i started looking at the fitness of the front bumper to the fenders and while not pure perfection. The fifth was nice. So i was like okay. I got underneath the car. I looked under the front of the car. And thing i realized is how low these cars are. These scott packs are pretty low to the ground and there was quite a bit of scraping under the her not sure of the original owner justin care. What but seeing how little ground clearance there was. I wasn't surprised to see all the scrapes. But i really didn't see anything concerning as far as a possible wreck. That's good but it's still made me nervous as to why the front end had been taken off but at this point i decided to take the car back to the dealer and let them know what i had found and kind of gauge their reaction and looking back now stupid me i could have just referred to the website which actually has a free carfax to look at on the listing of the car. I didn't realize that until later that day. And you know technology's just you know. I remember buying cars with my dad and they didn't have that kind of stuff carfax didn't exist. You know what i mean. So it's like you're you're looking at the car from the front to the back from the top to the bottom and making sure you're not gonna get screwed that way now with carfax. It's really easy to see if a car has been involved in anything but let's just say we pulled up the carfax and it was clean. Well judging by the bolts on the fenders. I know they've been taken off. You know what i mean. So that's that's a red flag right there. But i wanted to see what the carfax looked like when i got back to the dealership and when i got back we pulled up the carfax and sure enough. There was a red flag. There was actually two red flags as it turns out the carfax indicated that the front end received a moderate amount of damage that was repaired at some point. But to my surprise there had also been some minor damage to the rear at some point to you know. Wow i didn't even see any indications of that and i checked it pretty good so that made me question how well actually inspected the rear bumper in the trunk area but it was listed only minor damage. And that could be anything you know. Just maybe he he bumped into something. You know nothing major Car facts will let you know if the car has been towed or the airbags deployed so none of those incidents had caused the air bags to deploy or the vehicle being towed which is a good sign but with vehicle. That's you know only a few years old. You know handful years old and low mileage less than thirty thousand miles to have two things on the carfax was kind of disappointing to me. Because i liked the car but the other thing that i saw on the car when i was at my house was that i forgot to mention earlier. Was that there was light surface. Rust around the brakes and on the rear wheel hubs now. I understand that cars will develop rest from sitting but this was a little bit different. Nothing that could be fixed with a little prep and paint but still not something. I wanted to see when i'm spending over thirty thousand dollars. You know what i mean. Hey get rid of the rust. But once i saw the car facts. I knew that this car wasn't the one. And i had already basically made up my mind on the way back to the dealership anyway but i was still curious to see what their initial numbers would look like since i had a vehicle that i actually do want to trade in but i didn't tell him that at first and i told him when i got back because i was like look. I'm not buying this car. I need to see what they would give me for my truck anyway. So i can kinda judge where i'm at from an actual dodge dealership. So i told him yeah. I'm actually interested in possibly trading in my car depending on how much you're gonna give me for it. So told him what my payoff was. And they you know salesman went over to the sales manager like they do and they they chat for a little bit past paperwork back and forth but in dealing with buying cars from dealerships. A lot of the time. I've never not been met with an initial offer that was laughable and this time was no different the amount they were actually gonna give me for. My trade was a complete joke and even with my trade aside they had tacked on nearly six thousand dollars of add ons bring the original sales price from thirty six and a half to over forty two thousand dollars in the car business. This is generally referred to as peeling off the ceiling. It's where they hit you with a big enough number that it sticker shock you but it gives them enough room for negotiation so here i am sitting with the initial offer in front of me and i'm looking at the numbers and they don't look that bad even after they tacked on six thousand dollars that i didn't ask him to and i guess that's just their dealership policy because the way it usually works is they'll give you the sale price on the car. You'll sometimes see him do four square which has basically four boxes and one box has your trade in value. The other box has the sales price of the vehicle. The box below. That has your down payment and the last box will be your monthly payment box where they will break down depending on the term of your loan and your apr what your monthly payment will be. So usually they'll hit you with four square. this time. They just hit me with a piece of paper that had a bunch of numbers on it on the left side. It had all the financing terms. You know With a with a column for how much i put down the next column would be okay if this is how much you put down. That was basically a spreadsheet for this many months this percentage rate this much down so you could see you know in your head you can start looking at all the numbers and you know they do a pretty good job about hitting you with that. I number zero down. You've got this giant payment but as you go down you get one thousand two thousand and three thousand. The payment comes down a little bit and then you knowing some math you're going to save a little bit on interest. If i do you know a shorter term i might even get a better percentage rate but on this piece of paper you got the finance side and then you've got the details of the vehicle on the other side so you got your selling price and you know you're your trade allowance your you know. Add on's like they added a service contract a maintenance contract and automatically added gap insurance. That's where the six thousand dollars came from. And then they had the estimated trade value that they're gonna give me The trade amount. That hair gonna give me which was exactly the same as the estimate. I don't know why they reiterated that twice but they and then all the other fees associated with a purchase of a car Like your documentation fee admin fees tax license stuff like that so then Your cash down if you have any and then it'll show you your amount financed or your what they call the out the door price and that's what i like to get. I i like to go look look look. I don't care what your sales prices. What's your out the door price that way. No where. I'm at from the get-go okay. So here i am sitting with this initial offer in front of me and i'm looking at these numbers and what people don't know is that there are so many negotiable things on that piece of paper. You have no idea pretty much. Everything's pretty much negotiable. With the exception of your sales tax you know if you pay sales tax on vehicles in washington we pay sales tax. So that's the only thing that's really not negotiable but you can get that number to come down by negotiating everything else. You know what i mean. So this is where a lot of people get lost. They get lost in the numbers. In the instance. If you have a four square in front of your face you know they're going to focus you in on your monthly payment and your downpayment. 'cause they're gonna wanna they're gonna wanna get some cash and they're gonna wanna make you feel at ease you know and say hey for eighty four months. You know seven point nine nine percent. You know your monthly payments going to be seven hundred fifty dollars a month. You're going to get sticker shock to go. Whoa seven hundred fifty dollars a month or you out of your damn mind. But then they're gonna show you you know but if you put down seven thousand dollars that payment will go down so my initial offer was on a print out the had all these numbers the finance terms and all the details for the pricing of the vehicle. And what the total amount finance would be so with the foursquare. They're going to try to keep your attention on the two squares at the bottom which are usually down payment and your monthly payments. Because you know when you're talking to them initially they're going to try to get some questions out of you from the gecko you know. Are you going to be trading in. Are you going to be financing paying cash. What kind of monthly payment were you looking for How much down d have they're going to ask these questions to try to gauge you and see where you're at. They're going to try you on. That's what they call it. They're gonna try you on hand. The key is not to focus on those numbers. Because you should have already been prepared knowing what you could spend or what you're pre approved for before you even go and look at a car. I'm gonna go ahead and stop this story slash lesson on car buying right here and on the next episode. We're going to dive into the type of tactics that dealers use when valuing trades reviewing carfax reports with you the negotiation process in general and how you can negotiate a fair deal simply by understanding the game and being prepared before you even step foot into that showroom and we're also going to talk about the common practice of simply walking away and not feeling the pressure not feeling that sales pressure but not before we talk about how they start to peel you off the ceiling like they tried to do with. That's where i left my story off but look the process of buying a car doesn't have to be a headache. But i promise you that chances are in some of the deals or all of the deals that you've made in the past somewhere within all that paperwork or within those four squares you are leaving money on the table and we can't be having that folks we wanna squeeze as much money out of them as they tried to squeeze out of us and the only reason i know some of this stuff is because i've been screwed in the past and i have people in the car business i know and i learned things along the way i hear these. I hear these terms. I hear these tactics and you know you go to any car dealership and you you just go into the showroom and you look at the cars and you can hear you can probably hear a bunch of car deals going on. It is the same thing at each one of those tables. It's kind of funny every time i've gone to a dealership and looked at a car. It's always the same set of questions and the same process. And that's why feel confident and telling you guys this kind of stuff so that you can use it to your advantage you know might not be exactly the same but when it comes down to the numbers and manipulating the numbers. It's all pretty much the same as far as negotiation. We're gonna get into that on the next episode so you don't get bent over when buying a car there. You have it my friends.

This because I need to talk to somebody and Bruce's not the person in ultimately it all comes down to the same. fucking shit with dudes all want one thing, but. It almost doesn't even matter that more that much anymore like if you just WanNa use me I wanNA use you because I'm hungry. What's the difference? I mean I. Mean that sounds terrible doesn't give it a prostitute myself out for TACO, Bell. The. I don't know maybe I am Indiana is pretty early to figure that when but. I'm still pretty hungry in by four or five o'clock tonight even hungrier. So I, don't know. I don't know. I'm really unhappy. I feel stupid. Fuck I'm sick. In the world is on fire. And I just don't know what to do anymore. In Yeah, realistically I need help I need. A better doctor I need a doctor. Period I need better support system. I need to knockoff the bullshit with the drugs and I need to find. Clear that shit up I'm too old for this. I really am too old to be doing this over and over and over and over again and I'm just lost. Really, am I'm just lost. I need help. I'm stupid. Admitting this you know for the whole world. Listen to that you know I. Did this thing I don't suggest it to anybody? It's not worth it to try to die. We all are GONNA die anyway. When you try to yourself I swear to God that he makes it so much more painful so that you remember why it's not your job. Take your own life. It's up to him. And he'll do it in a way less painful way. I hope. You know other Christian did show up over the weekend in he did. Bring me food which I just remembered so. Some Chinese something or other emerged Jurado right now. Kobe. Now. But seems a little early in the morning to be eating Chinese something right now. Nothing!

And I fucked up hard. Part! And I'm sorry. is down. But you know it is what it is and I'm. Alive. Just feeling awful. My premises to die in I. Really, didn't WanNa die really wanted. It's a change. In a did. It changed over four days now. The world is on fire An. There is no security about anything and I. Don't have my best friend anymore. and. Just really. I don't know what I am really displeased. I'm really unsatisfied with my life right now. Nomo seems like it's too late to get it back. Seems like it's not even worth. Trying to get it back, because if I do something else in the world is going to change. It's GonNa Change that, and then it's all this back to Kirwan again. That links any sense. And I'm just. Scared. Really scared. If you're not scared. I don't know. Maybe it's a better way to be. May Be better off. That's be scared and just be a little bit oblivious to e cow deep. All this shit is going down. I don't know. It's like my cat is like talking to me in her muffled voices I. Have This cat in her? She has no forced is like it's really weird like she honestly can't meow, but. She makes noise so. Does that make any sense. I can hear her in. Around the soft little whisper voice, but cannot hear her. She doesn't cry. Which is so odd? Have all these cats now that have decided that they wanna live here because I don't know why I don't really care. They can live here. You know in doc loves DOC is his baby. Kitten of the kitten? Now is what how many weeks old. Twelve something we could no. She's a little freaking, are he? I don't know what it is I never sex the cat when it was a kid I'm still not sure if the boy or girl that. He's cute is fuck in? There's reasons why I need to stay alive. Because without me, all these cats would die which some people might think would be a great thing, and maybe ultimately it would be, but for right now. They give me a reason. So doctors to lock my boo and. That's what I need to get. Help I. Think is I just can't leave him like that. I can't leave him to be the one that when they opened the door. They find my dog eating my face because he's hungry. Your Baby. Robotics. OVONIC's. You kidding me out IBP? So cute such an infection in his eyes he's. Baby. He loves stark. So anyway. I just wanted to check. Let you all know that that's what I did and I'm not proud of it. And I don't feel good about it and I didn't really get anything out of it leak. That'll do what you expect to get out of trying to overdose overdosing, but. I don't know what I was trying to actually will do was trying to succeed at, but I didn't really want that. End result anyway so. I'M GONNA try to slowly pick up the pieces today and get some food in my stomach, and hopefully not fucking vomit like massive. Lake. Don't those people it's not. It is terrible. If I would've. I would've wanted up with a terkel. Fuck and Yucky Shit. Anyway it all this would have been bad, so maybe it's better that I just stayed home in. made it through it. I made it through it. I don't feel good though. But I made it through it. You know and now I don't know what the next step is. The friend is a good idea. Hearing you all say yes, so I guess it's dinner with a friend. And and. Then on from that. Maybe at least give me a different point of view from whatever deals has been giving me. Maybe it's time to. Knock off the trailer Park Bullshit out here in stop believing people. Stop feeling like. Will have a reason to believe like everybody is still after me and they're still shit. Going on in brisk told me that he saw people coming in and out of my yard. And stuff in a really kind of mean way. Then he fucking hurt me. Punch me in the chest and told me to follow him in my pajamas to could show me. On it just went bad from there and. When I came home, and just was like fuck this and a handful of mixture of and. There was I'm not proud of what I did guys I really not. I'm really really not proud of it, but that's my total disclosure for that annum. Don't try to kill yourselves. Okay, 'cause, you're valuable to somebody to me as a listener as a as a person who you know, public up to me, but But look up to me. I'm not somebody to be looked up to. Liam somebody to learn from. So if you learn nothing for me, learned that, don't die. Okay. The try to kill yourselves just hold on. And, if you're feeling that Shitty, you can get a hold of me. Go to the website, dancing, bipolar dot com, and draw a line, and we can cry together online about fucked up. Shit is in how. It isn't how much we don't know what to do anymore. In how confused we are, and how much nothing makes sense anymore? Maybe just by that little touch of. Will be able to make it through to the next day. It may be then it will start to make more sense. You know. Maybe just, comes down to drinking KOOL aid. I mean real cool eight. Not Jim, Jones, Kool aid, but You know maybe this will. All about is Kool aid in Jello, and how easy shit that we had when we were kids. That makes things seem so regular, because the thing is regular, narrow it. Nothing's going to be regular, but maybe we can keep it a little bit up. By going back to shit. That made us realize that we were alive when we were kids, you know Gelo sounds really good rate. I would love to have some Jello. Still good drugs in my system that quite washed itself out. Yet may need to take a shower and I really need to eat. All to album. I'm still alive. I'm not okay.

Which is, don't die okay. and. I'll be back shortly nine. Not Today, but I'll be back. Quicker than I was last time between shows I know have been kind of not so very on that, but. I have reasons why and you know that so? Anyway thanks for listening. You. Guys Rock don't die. Keep together, stay strong. So, this is this podcast into bipolar in. Hey, let's all stay alive, okay?

Let's look at a learning benefits that a key to understanding why you should even broader concetta including this as part of your marketing plan. So what are the benefits of social listening any while the benefits of social listening can be broad and wide? But which the efforts to get it done. Think of social listening as a way to have one in into everything that is happening across one thousand channels yet right one thousand channels you can see it as a means of sifting intermission to too big baskets of valuable or useless.

So let's spend some time looking at what you need to start spying on competition the heavy okay. So what do you need to do will make how you conduct this particular process absolutely for looking at a list of big tools that available to conduct the actual social listening at me? I dive into what you can look out for on social media and explain explain it. You don't sound what I mean. This may be obvious to you. But just in case you didn't know you will need to go with a few objectives in mind before getting started. So he has a big little things consider key words and phrases hashtags Bre Nimes Proclaims Questions Tack Lines Trends Social Holidays Industry Jargon influences defense pain points on accounts so that spent some time looking at each of these in a little bit more detail tabby but on his on how you can use them when it comes to keywords in phrases some of the obvious things listen to on. Social Media Can Which brand-new new industry for example but soon budgeting so if you have a financial services blog business especially for blue from finance. I should really specify that the attempt editing could be something to look for which is a key would akif race Saving money all of those. If you have a blog about poussin financing interested in gaining insights for example conversations that people are having on social media using teams like budgeting saving saving money that kind of reduce expenses. All of those wanted category of keyboards key freezes next up at is really really submit to it. Is Hush tax so this may sound a little bit confusing for for some people but ki ki would is very different from Hashtag the tank of Hashtags as keywords with the number symbol would hashtag simple knicks. It he would stand to have a direct meetings. Wins Budgeting in? You know phrase or sentence that day using Obviously talking about budgeting and whereas if the puts a Hashtag it could mean a seasonal trend with would like would budget in. It could be a season on channel showtime trench. So if you put budget in the Hashtag it could be. It could be a budget with a capital or case. Be Lucky speed. It could be that for example. The country is going for the their Budget so places like the US a lot of countries in both countries. They've got what they call an annual budget on your budget We talk about taxes that people have to pay and you know all different kinds of kinds of taxes loosening taxes property taxes at all sort of benefits to consumers health care expenditure etcetera and that has obviously nothing to do with boosting finance at Ola. Because it's trending his age just probably has to do with just the annual budget for country and that is a major difference between a Hashtag a key phrase when someone plays within a sentence normally referring to something. That's blue smelted. Tim especially comes with budgeting budget. Whereas if it's in a Hashtag it could mean several other things could be the hospital budget. It could be so many things on a good example of this. For example during the presidential elections that happens every freeze on there will be hashed on specific for the presidential elections like they would be Hashtag Candidates Hashtags for a conference as being held all different things related to take no event that happens wolf alone period more or less six months to a year you have trending hashtags based on that events. Happening in the campaign is over those hashing hashtags longer useful. Life goes back to normal right at number three. We've got brandings. Do you like chocolate. Well if you do you probably already know that. There is large company. Core Mas Inc. Who makes several chocolate bronze and the six largest privately held company the US some of their brand names include celebrations. Bounty Kabul's three musketeers. Vase Galaxy Maltesers Ams. I'm sorry if I have you salvaging at a total of all of those Browning's but if you're celebrating it means that the branding actually works because it just called any of the Brown on you moat waters and you just WanNa have at chocolate candy. Okay so the best way to track down. These brands on social media is by using either the Brown. Hashtag were account name. So if you head on over to success UNSCRAMBLED DOT COM forward slash social media. Listening you get access to the show notes on India. You have several screen shots Screen shots outlining exactly. What makes explaining on this particular podcast? One of the of the brand called combos on India. You'll actually find A screen shot of the cobbles. A twitter account And he would see. Got The have The account handle which is the symbol on combos. So if you'd want to do social media listening you can do it on to truck. What's happening around the COMPOS BRIAN? Me How productive civis that is related to the compost finally can just go ahead and practice out of the tools of this covenant Lehtonen. Podcast that You know you can track what's happening. What people towards the discussion? What's you know what's general sentiment Which I would explain. Luckily in this mythic no podcast episode. But if you you little bit to see Akkad visibility of what I'm describing here before we've got product needs so for smaller businesses who have smaller marketing budgets. It would make sense at the outset. A separate social media account for each product that they offer so in this case it would make sense to WanNa tell or listen to conversations or at least a specific product name as an example. Murray flu has a podcast. That is just called emory for your put gas and that is a product. I knew he probably thinking but I find appropriate action. Eat as a product because it's one of the things that she offers to her potential clients or consumers core followers etc is actually the product and she has a specific hashtags at this particular podcast which is called Hashtag. The Marie Folio podcast. One would and again. I've left a screen shot. Initial notes had to success unscrambled come forward slash social media listening. Okay number five. We've got questions. Did you know that it is possible to listen off for questions? On social media at first it may sound like a bit shady bought it is actually quite alleged but it does require a little bit of thinking outside the box to get done. I headed back to you in Marie. Accountants which where she is soliciting questions. And you can head over to us. We can see. What are these iphone because it's kind of? It's kind of difficult to explain. It's a podcast APP but if you hit with his shows you see a screen of what I found with people asking questions and You also see that. There is a separate account. Coal Team Folio. That's Team F. O. R. L. U. Andras questions from Res Audience Questions so if I go and I look through the incident to account of team full you I can see that India tweets replies and that you know to other people's questions cetera onto tate. South notice is possible. Millions Whitaker's economies to tell because it's real time current events et CETERA whereas Instagram is. More for visual. Account will be begin. Ask questions there as well. So I Marie Foley actually has a separate account to handle questions on instagram free. Free took one. Look it up if you'd like but as far as I can see what you hear little in the podcast. I did have a good marines. Were REFUND US. Instagram account as well okay. A number six. We've got tag lines. Their number of companies across several industries with tag lines that are so easy to remember on easing to us on social. Media Egregious. Example of a brand within awesome.

Iki Obese hit him. Repeating this tagline every time you know over the peak public address system. Okay I remember seven. We've got a trans is one of the easiest forms of social media listening searching for what's trending trending topics. It didn't use twitter PINTEREST AND INSTAGRAM. Simple ways to find out what's trending on each of the platforms on twitter simply. Click with the extra tab to bring up the current trending topics by location by topic will by Keith special specifically for you again.

Okay so if you look at was a screen shot again in the show notes on even see when I click on the explore tab on that specific date? You'd see what showed up six Copies many fix tiles causes quite huge. I could obviously do screen size. Nbc To success things will try to think of ten steps happiness yet on his bibo stable Empire so you will. You'll notice a photo of opera. If you had to wash I say we'll we'll probably if you had over the show notes and in one of the results on the top I decide to click on it and see what's GonNa. Why is it trending and what?

Obviously there are a lot of celebrations around the Oklahoma Gazette and determined to anniversary celebrations. On you can actually see the comments on this particular instagram. Polls would allow employees actually commenting on Dixie of looking for the Opera magazine or proxy Oprah Winfrey Oprah magazine et cetera spending on which country you you live in if I'd Oprah Opera You decide how you want to discuss it again. Head over to the show notes even see acting. I'm talking about at number. Eight is called social holidays so this is one that one should this one should be really easy because the S. so many wide on folk special holidays like Siblings Studies National Siblings Day. Today is national growing healthy or Strawberry Pie Strawberry. You have all these really weird and wonderful wants happening. Nearly every single month of the year a great example of this would be the woodchuck today or their which takes place in July than they have the national chocolate day which takes place in October and the best way to go about finding dues designated holidays is by using the Hashtag which is national chocolate. The N. T. O. CHOCOLATE OR U. S. H. O. D. K. In Industry Jargon. Isn't it number nine a great way to easily find? Experts in a specific niche is to seek them out using of phrases that is honest within that industry. So one would that comes to mind is social listening surprise surprise unless you social media marketer the chances of you using that particular phrase very Only people who are mocking does walk.

We've got influencers so using insurance a spot of your social media listening project is a great way to gain insight on. What's hot in your niche right now? One of the best ways to find influences in spice starting with someone you already know unit. I'm so I headed over to instagram on up again or Marie Folio I find I find I found lease up post and then I looked to see which which profiles that commented on hope. post would blue ticks. And it's and the reason why I'm doing blue ticks. People who are very fide on instagram takes very fight means normally they are well known brand name got a big enough following et cetera. On the two influences so entries and why I'm looking for the Blue Tick. It doesn't mean that people automatic on influences. It's just that people who are more mindful and more popular more. Indochino are the ones that have takes right sue. You can help with additional. It's again on a screen shot of oppose. That was done by folio at has Feed you actually look at has over two thousand views and it was less than when when captured it was less than Training for our void had already said he tells views on that video so the blue tick on her profile was a instagram handle that scold talking shrimp NYC Which is what iphone and I clicked over nuts and captain street shut. I can see there. It belongs Laura Belgrade. And she's got forty one thousand followers on instagram and when we five hundred fifty six and the other person with a blue tick commented on Mary. Murray's Marie photos is Jordan. Delete I head over to her account. And I found her captain screeches. Well if you had with additional success unscrambled dot com forward slash slash social Jealously you get an insight as to what I'm talking about. And she had a three hundred sixty three thousand followers would one thousand and you can see there will ask what's happening what I'm talking about you know step-by-step etc so if you ever wonder why social media manages charge handsomely for their services This is the reason why because they have a lot of painstaking work for their clients to make sure that the clients get success at a need. I have to admit that it is similarly tactic on a Lotta Fun. If you need someone to help you with the task of social media listening. I've left Lingayen initials.

We've got events at one of the best ways to find ten days or conference with summit on. Social Media is by listening to Hash Tags on on the messaging of a popular conference. So if you notice a conference like every year it is digital marketing congress as a one by social media. Examiner is always big conferences in social media. let's see event that those people would be interested. A good example of this is if you're an event or summit conference WanNa promoted three months in advance and you knew that there is a conference. That is coming up six months before you'll conference for example you can get involve join. The conversation in the border Confronts to drop interest in your conference because people who mackey attending that particular conference will be not interested in your confronts especially if it was niche and people who are. I don't know if example doing a conference on instagram. Breaks up on you. You just look at the thing. That's happening Social Media. Examine you talk those who would have an interest in instagram and Eric. Message invite him to your conference which is happening in three months time. So giving you enough time to do it. What the key thing but events is if you use a Hashtag To help those attention attendance. Remember on find your your posts or your conference Promotion on social media than it's makes it easy peasy for them to you know to seek out and find you remember the deeds etc again. I've left an example of a conference hashtag initials. You can head over there and have a look at what? I'm talking about at number twelve paint links. Have you ever wondered about the challenges?

New iPod touch rumors, competing iPhone 11 renders, leaked Smart Battery Cases debut

"You went to discuss the new slack icon change for the next hour. Right. I I don't know the purple I like the actual they've changed. I have an opinion. But the fact that people saw. Problematic imagery within it makes me makes me cautious DeVos that. I think looks better than us. And the MAC version just needs to have a circle or tilt to it. And not the US, you know, round wreck shape. I any macaroni around wrote is. Yeah, I hate icons with with. Letters in them. Because then my mind starts to read read them when there's a together like. Find your own examples but off of my own apps. Well, so the new one just like other there were times today when I went to click on Skype and I'd click on chrome because like the colors will more recognizable. Like, what my mind saw is like the slack colors and the news the knee slack Akon link can look at it. And I think a Hilton hotel or something, I don't know. Acting like the journal twit consensus seems to be that he's terrible. I think is terrible. Part of it is that I think even in like flex blog post about their icon changed like they said, you know, he made disagree. You may like hate it. You know? But like what went on for us? The best solid like hope that new icon vix his memory management problem. But to me like the issue is that there's an overreaction to like every icon change. So it's hard to know if you know, how would you recognize an icon going from good to bad gauging that based on the reaction to it. Because there's always this giant reaction to like on change for better or worse. I am glad he's not white background. I'll give him a dark purple. I was kidding about that we do you to talk with this week. So the first thing I wanted to mention is a story that you covered in his kind of follow up to a thing. We mentioned. In our first half out of the year, where we talked about kind of the the iphone challenges, and how people could address what what they say caused their revenue MS for phones, particularly in China. And so time about the the price change to phones in China. Yes. Third party retailers. We have seen the ad like the leading resellers that are there with rise resellers, but is not apple stores and in China, the two big ones a Jadot clemen soon. Ing S U N, I N G, and they have effectively cut the prices of I say a plus antenna by about twenty percent. Because of you know, we're taxes and stuff technically the funds Roussel expensive in the US prices. So the ten all has gone down twenty percent reduction about seventeen percent from his Nomo price. It was on cypher sixty five hundred Chinese yen and now sold for five thousand three hundred ninety nine which is different about seven hundred ninety year stolas, and obviously seventy nine year stole is high than the seven four nine Rita price in the US, you know, taxes and conservation stuff. That comes into play. These carry a does is not like we cover the Japan's dealer while ago where it was like subsidized over two years this up front. You can buy a fine, and it was twenty cent cheaper than it was the week before in China only and on the back end it seemed like apple lowered the price that they sold. They house of the phones to to neighbor the the retailers to have some flexibility, right? And clearly, we know the Chinese Maki's weaken the price cuts help sustained demand, and he's not like that currently in any sort of holiday celebration where you would expect big discounts. The next thing on the Chinese kinder is the Chinese New Year. But that doesn't really start to let the first week of February. And this is the first second January's, clearly it's related to the Chinese CEOs by think, I actually sit this the shy when we're talking about the invest letter said I don't see I find price cuts would wide written university between the lines a lab. I'm pretty sure I said, maybe we'll see. Some discounting in particular markets like China, that's what they've done yet. And so the goal there is that they will sell more. I phones at the new prices, and they would have and make more money from that than if they would have to the higher prices before. And and you know, it's kind of an experiment. So we'll see how it goes. And this is believed to those retailers actually saw more than Apple's does day in that region. So is most -nificant like of the pricing hasn't changed. And if I did that we'll see each day. Oh, but Stu noticeable because these are like leading resellers like small little shops. Interesting and also this would contribute not to the numbers that we're going to hear in a few weeks, but to the following quarter, and you know, guest depending on how it goes like, maybe it affects their guys the offer. But. And finally, if you discount stuff than typically, you're expecting hyena sows revenues share oppose riposting revenues anymore. Just don't quite there. Upticks on their polls sign not just so we'll see we'll see what happens there. But it's yeah. It felt like I think you're right in that you you predicted price changes in certain markets globally, including the US because apple when under their way in that letter to highlight success and markets were not China. So okay. And the next thing is part of that we had mentioned, you know, the the whole battery replacement issue where you could replace your from battery for twenty nine dollars and app, apple included that as as one of the factors that affected fewer iphone upgrades in the last quarter of the calendar year, and John Gruber. New information seems to be you know, kind of. The record in terms of what the number is. But tell me about the the what he's got on from battery placements. Yes, I grew said he learned from associates cloudy was in the Owens making tinker count on journey. The full the die off to the investment came out. That cook said I find battery places to twenty teen will between ten and eleven million when an enormous year, they only be one to two million, which is quite significant difference. Clearly, that's a little this is because they might repes- a little cheaper by. She thinks Paula is just it became so publicized like not just the price difference. But the fact that you can even get your in battery replaced too. I think a lot of which were not wed you could even do that. And that was the calamity with the bachelor gay staff, and he became new stories that you'll find slower, and you get your bashing changed. I don't if even if they had put the prices and the press is going up, but not to the same was they were originally like a sexy nine dollars now maximum before seventy nine, but even if they twenty dollars, I think if you look to the twenty nine hundred numbers, they would not be there would not be saying flair. They would not be at ten to eleven million again like a lot of this was like a one time Poche appear to be like, wow, I didn't get you back to your place. Oh this fixes a problem. I might not even be experiencing because the news is telling me about it like, yeah. I reckon a decent portion those tend to people waiting being affected by the performance roiling. They just had a slow phone in the before I twelve era and. We're like, well, clearly, the, you know, the the the the headlines telling me back to your place fix these problems. And then they get your place, and it might have been the core symptom. Anyway, there's a lot of a lot of stuff therapy were like just get replace on of the fun of slow. This is something new I've done before and it's cheap and get it done. And so they did like some I saw some news outlets report this as apoe sewed Africa ten million battery placements, which was ten times more than they expected to more than -ticipant it, which I don't think. Correct. I don't oversea went into cook meeting. But the way the grieve away today, it was no apple was surprised and overwhelmed by the Dimond because they made the bachelor's cheaper. I just think they would do in the historical person of enumerate repair wants two million and with the twenty dollar pregnant place. They tend to eleven million the couple of put it as like APPA was. Blindsided by the fact that so many people came in, you know, ten times more people can go back to your place. I don't believe that. It was the intent of the Coleman. Yeah. Yeah. I agree. I think the other thing takeaway here is what kind of where you concluded before too. Which is that apple could look at the numbers all year long and see, oh, we've replaced five million Barry's that's already way higher than usual. And like baked into the numbers for the end of the court. I don't have any iphones expected to sell. But it wasn't until it was time for those phone, honest upgrade, and then didn't that they realize the effect of all of this and again eleven million battery replacements like. I guess like at most you can add eleven million to the number of phones that were. So it's not gonna be at best. But like really, maybe it's like five million or so probably even less because if you if you take the one to two million normal number, right? So that's like the base rate. So if you do I love minus two, then you're and then let's say or the eight million people seventy five percent of just did it because they had on the news over bowed. You're going to be like two million maximum thing. Like, a paper the. Weren't gonna buy a battery placement. And then not upgrade find because of it. Like, plenty of people not ten million group who upgrade I find this year. Anyway, this is why it was like the number three on the other factors only on the because it probably accounted for maybe a million new iphone upgrades. A million new grade is still an important number to note for the investors when the shortfall was probably around seven and a half million sheets. They license of it. Right. Yeah. They were like eight billion in revenue on their estimate. And if you do know average price that's like seven and a half million fines, so one million seven hundred is no inconsequential, and maybe put like five million leks in China than they expected and in that last minute half was from the wicked amount in some develop monkeys, right? That's kind of how I've been puzzling surrend my head. Not saying that they would have more fines if the twenty dollar program was implies let me think that number safe to to include in the meeting, and then, you know, make way out but did not include in the in the in the letter to investors or in the CNBC interview with Kramer, like, you know, something about that number that wouldn't wanna share and then dead or because it was it was presented the context of like Gruber. Correcting some pretty bad analysis that only like really low balled the guesses how many batteries per store and didn't even factor in Millan replacements. And it was just like it was present. It's like a way like corrects and pretty bad analysis. But like why not include it in the letter? You know, say stuff, but could have included in Lebanon. Sure. Yeah. So an I think like athletes cheap if they know that if they have an Hans may England, everyone all the employee's can watch online OB in person like those meetings. I gotta leak out. It's just it's just it just going to happen. Sort happened lost the trial performance stuff. They know that such as 'cause they know this stuff is gonna come out and say it was like sensitive numbers. The they didn't want to be in the public domain. They wouldn't be shying though, Hans meaning they have private meetings, but the Malki group away and discuss it like when you can actually have accountability if the people in the room know, every apple employees in the world can just log onto this website happening. So I I think they probably too concerned about the publicity of the numbers of this Lee. If I think I think what it comes down to is. It was the third the third or for factor in the list, and they didn't want it was already really really long, and they don't want to stuff it reloaded around numbers in this league. And maybe in the owning school at the end of the month. They might bring up some more. They go into more data about that stuff for sure. Yeah. Or if they were questioned about it by an investor like, what do you think the impact of the battery was then they'd realize from stats because they have stats that they don't share. It's like when they do know earnings reports they do their innings and they highlight highlights. Figures, and then they have other statistics that they sometimes bring up on the coal even like dumb stuff like apple TV CEOs. They don't report them. But that doesn't mean they didn't say becomes relevant. So I think that's because they're used to tidbit like they spent the vast majority folks on China, they gave a lot numbers on the China short for when the difference in the percentages, and they gave some examples of revenue of markets which gave excessively over revenue records, and then they listed some other factors, but don't not going like they have staff is so much stuff pick and choose right. It would be useful to know for the sake of projections. How many of the eleven million aside from like the factor of like how many you could you could? I think at the beginning of the year, they were replacing as many as they could, you know, a big backlog, but want inventory was normal. How many was the first half of the year versus the second half. Because then you could look at the data like how many places like the last three months of the year as what they're going to do going forward. Now that it's not in the news every day. But how how many of the eleven million was like the first three months. The first six months, the first one months, and they'll be detailed. But I could to them saying like the bulk of this was the first half of the year, and we saw a level off at the end of the year. And you know, now, it's it's kind of flat of like people are placing batteries just to say whether they will be ongoing factor or not an apple control down even further internally. I've no doubt like they can they can know if people that about replacing. This year. Did they buy new eyesight and sign it to their apple ID this year like starts stuff the opera could find out and they probably track Tenley. There's loads of stuff that I wasn't share with the public like I think you mentioned loss because that source of the two percent more people get through the day on. I was twelve like that's a positive start. Right. That's better than zero. He's not going down. But they just they just don't share stuff because I would be tedious and be stuff. They wanna that chest of the reasons that like. People don't understand like be companies have. So even apple that collects very low. They have so much. On your on your body habits. And we, and you know, they send emails to people still using sixes. Like here are three stats personalized compared to the like your phone is three times slow than the brand new iphone ten now, they have so much information that they can join if they have to how they end up making models, and that's how it becomes a point in, you know, on the on the largest scale, this is the first time they missed the guidance in fourteen years writing is like they don't do that by accident. Let's was making numbers. They've so much that crunches these estimates. Like, you just you just don't think about it. Because you know, escaping things. It doesn't really matter unless you're in the in the divisions doing the doing the analysts I like doing the analysis like as outside it probably doesn't. But they have so many stars on everything they just they just that's just what companies do they have today. This week nine to five MAC.

Our thanks to set out for sponsoring nine to five MAC. Happy hour. My New Year's resolution was to just let airpower go. And you know, like we said that the beginning of the year. Like, you know, they missed the twenty thousand window, but then left anything more to discuss like, what's the point? And so really just been like airpower jokes finding anymore. And if you know if it happens it happens if it doesn't it doesn't. But the power airpower won't show up. The rumors won't go away and on Saturday. There was a story that gets our hopes up that air power production. Either has started or is starting soon. So tell me about that. Yeah. Even for me. And I'm invested in this stuff is everybody nights. Even I've given up on how jokes like. I really want the product to exist. I've exhausted every decide about it unless you know, these random stuff and even this report, I'm scared. I think a lot of people jumping exits like salivating shred of anything. I'll say then we can get into. I I'm skeptical of of says 'cause this is from challenge L app who previously had renders of the eighteen wall USB charger that came at Los J, but they said it was the and the renters were accurate, but they re row top that was the iphone charger and visit in happen. Separately and is bundled with the ipads. So they have record. No perfect. But quite quite win resources on five dollars, isn't that point discounting entirely? But what they showed is a couple of tweaks. Nope. Log pice for the for the challenge thing they made a big images. Yeah. For the app has they did to tweets saying that they have been told that someone someone told them the power is now entering mass production. And they I said they'd go information through this chain of luxury precision which apple uses as like components for cameras and sentences and stuff and start production of power. But. Luxury doesn't. Necessarily Mike for complete products than ready going to pump out finished items than more like component supplier. So that was kind of weird. But then they fell out with a second tweet that said that peg atrocities time extra production from Johnny twenty twenty I which is like next week, and it was several hours in between three one tweet to like. And they didn't they didn't even say tweet one was wrong. They just kind of also pitcher on this time on the twenty s to maybe I think they getting is the luxuries making components for power and then pay his final assembly and Peggy on involvement was first reported back in June. Montgomery Bloomberg said the apple was Wichmann package on to make the map in the first place. And. With makes the mix airports right now. Inventec mesa. Petro makes iphones. Okay. They split with folks on and stuff. I think I think this year pay on mainly makes the ten and then mainly makes fantastic, basically. So a lot of free time on their hands. Factor is new stuff too. They credible social supply chain. But then the tweets pictures of the the Bryant, the the the mock images of the app how Matt loosing before and then screen shots of conversations. From like we chat in Chinese. I'll go if I have credible sources, they also private that. They don't get screened twelve. So that was where I was a starting. Like if you actually have a gritty credible. So's you reveal the message by posting on Twitter share. Yeah. Just doesn't happen. So I think that they were screen shotting someone that someone else had told them from a credit if it was like a bit like third hand. And I wanna believe the same time. I kind of caught like rally behind this, really. Because if you look back at twenty eighteen we had stories through the six months twenty eighteen while lows random websites reporting that they were hearing powers entering production there even credible reports from like Bloomberg apple was targeting September. And then, you know, it didn't happen in quo said the end of twenty teen of the twenty twenty nine hundred clearly the begin ended twenty did not happening either. So it's like a on the way apple is known. So no one else could know. And maybe here we are like it's time. And but yeah, like with you. This isn't quite the kind of a story that we'd hold up as like, you know, we believe it. So it's it's someone citing it. It's bigger. It's too big to ignore. The it's not one. It's like you put a rumor label on it. Now like a report label on it. And if the is entering mass production, we should be seeing other leaks the along with this like stuffing trademarked, like a picture of airpower schematics leaking out to the press, for instance, or the airports charging case having a big bucket of a million dollars being made. Like there are other trails the happen. If something is entering mass production and unlike smolder products, like the ipad, even the folks COMEX for like. To me, it feels like that would be corresponding stuff to buy this up. And at the moment that doesn't really seem to be no this is necessary wrong because I can't say you can't point to anything that just making out because there's no there's no concrete thing to go against it. But I wouldn't. I'm not expecting it to be correct. If that makes sense, I'm no going into this week now going, yes. Eh power coming out next week because if he really is getting much petition the twenty-first the product will be out within a month because after doesn't like the whole stock for too long. They don't wanna hold in inventory for like, then then we inventory paired his six weeks of its kind of mass production on the twenty first it would be out before the NFL Abry if you like unless I in crazy's going on like that they just has to be the indicators to follow. And so far, we we haven't seen those the best thing. We've is quite said the F house coming in late two thousand eighteen or twenty nineteen and he's only two. The feet of months that you got to think we're moving into a healthy healthy area where this development though, which is we used to be on the edge of receipts and hopeful with everything that we saw. And now, we have a lot of all hope, but we're actively discounting or at least preparing ourselves for stories say here, it's coming like, we'll see maybe maybe I mean, I don't think he's been canceled. But I think it will be out when it's when it's done, and I don't want to announce anything between because they were embarrassed by having to delight before. So okay. I'm getting ready to go out the doors ready to guy the door, and it's not related to any other people keep coming up with these ideas. What if apple has a March of and that's where the app how coming out, what's if apple has a new wireless charger. Battery cases or anything else. Like, they I think people just people love to make patterns when they're when they're on things. Like this product was clearly scheduled to come out in like the first half of last year it missed that window, then it was probably meant to come out in the second off that year with new finds and miss that window to like this. There's no strategy. It's just gonna come out when when he's ready to come out be it. Yeah. Okay. Next thing is. A report from Matt car that really spiked my interest. They say that. And it's exciting. But it's it's like back. Many satis many was really old and new and exciting Meko two Kara says apple is developing a new ipod, touch, and the reason that that is exciting because apple hasn't really said new instance, twenty fifteen I believe and they sell it for the same price. And if you go on the refurbish store, they still so the fifth generation I touch which run ten runs IRS eleven run, honest tent. Yeah. Runs Iowa's nine which can't be safe and really doesn't fit like apples vision for. There's their platforms. This is interesting. It's like, I don't think there's really a I don't think they have to this year. I think the last. The lesson. They had a new ipod touch fifteen. It was like that chip was about to be dead in terms like, you know. They'll sell refurbished, I heights with all software, but they won't. So a new, and they would just probably wanted to continue it, you know, older refurbished or stop selling touches. But I think two thousand fifteen when they needed updated. If they wanted to support that fall version of Iowa or maybe the next year. And I think I think with the current touch a wrench the same chip as the I pad many four and the iphone six and then for that matter the apple TV fourth generation in the home pod. I yeah. And I feel like that's going to be because Iowa's trove works iphone five s and six I don't feel like I was thirteen would kill the five s and the six I think both probably supported because they want to maintain the good will. Got it for my always twelve and then like fourteen concert killing off devices. But I don't feel like it's for that reason. But for whatever the reason is I'm up to mystic that this happens and philosophy about because as mentioned this show. My daughter had an ipod, touch and the battery just world on it and the cost of replacing the battery. I think it was like around sixty or seventy bucks was just like versus a new one. It didn't make sense for me in buying a new one of the same thing from four years ago. Really bothers me. And so we decided to competition they don't make a new version of this yet. And so we're not going to replace it yet. And she understood for what it's all she could with this story. I just thought it'd be fun to tell her. Hey, there's a rumor that Apple's going to make a new ipod touch. Oh, can we get it when it comes out? And I was like, yeah. We will if they make it. We don't know for sure yet. But if make it will buy it. She decided she said that can be like my phone in. It can be like your phone if they make it. We'll see because he's too. My sister uses an ipod, touch, and she has the latest generation model but for Christmas. My mom's me like why don't we get the new apple touch like a Christmas present. And I was like mom is the new I put. Three years at this point. And it's just like like, I I'll into the upper parts around for this long. She just. She just. Longest time link. There was an iphone. There's an touch. No. It's just like the touch was always like where you kind of want the iphone going, then it is like portable. But then they started making bigger phones the ipod touch went from three and a half inches to four inches, but never went to four point seven all bigger screens. I mean, the touch was still touch ID yet and touch ID new face. Single came in the back. And you like, I don't know if they would do all that on on new version, like, maybe they would I, you know, I would guess like touch ID and not trace ID, and like the same case is and all that just like faster, and like a better camera, maybe even from the fifth generation to generation. It wasn't a big chains. Like, they got rid of the little camera loop on the back. There was that one weird version. We're had no camera hit a price point. And the guy rid of that one. I think it was only available like gray. And. Yeah. It's weird. But I hope this is true because I will be as a parent in the market for this. We have. Nine point seven ipad for my daughter is well, that's like her kind of computer and. It goes a lot of places with us. And she gets great use out of it. But the division when she had the the working I touch was that the ipad was for educational purposes, and the ipod touch was kind of the gaming thing. And that was the funniest whatever. Yeah. Still is. And there was a division of hardware like once for fun ones for, you know, learning things and our cr- awhile until the battery died, and then I had to loosen up that division love it to be. And I think the colors way better than the five c because it was plastic or aluminum. But also that's in our like, the blue touch is what I would want out of a blue iphone. Is much more saturated pop smo-? Yeah. I think the writes the same with the blue is better because the touch is one ninety nine to stall, you can gave them get more expanding storage up. But. One hundred nine hundred dollars. You can buy like apple doesn't sell it. You know, but probably retitled still sell the, and that's the newest chip it has touch ID and his bad camera. Actually, an iphone six S hundred the chip. So you get those you can do the cannot do grew FaceTime with video can only do group FaceTime with audio. But that without an case six as well. But it's not the case with a success. So if you've got an SE, you could do group video calling as well believe the is like you can buy new for the same price as the touch, and you're getting move across the board and you having a phone inside as well. The the fifth generation touch. Came the generation taught story came out in two thousand fifteen in July. And so it it used the chip and the iphone six came out in the the September before so the six s hadn't been released yet. So it was still the current. It was the Knicks chip apple made at the time. Yeah. And that tends to be their strategy with the touch is like when they come out that pretty well spags just leaving the language around when the came had the same chip as the success, just months later. So it was like at the time. It was like, wow, they're really being aggressive with that enter to the hardware, and then by updating it it made more sense. So then we get to what will be in a theoretical types seven. Yeah. I think they'd give any ten probably wouldn't be a twelve biotic. There's so much. There's a lot of room between what's in it right now. What could be in it, even if they didn't for other four years the three twenty nine eight ten right? So probably say ten or eleven. Like a thing. That's that's fine. The sky hope his I hope will happen. I think the five is not getting iris thirteen. Yeah. I think the six the six line well, but they'll calls the five asked because we're ready. We're seeing limitations group as time and hopefully with this you I revamp of some description, I want them to take this opportunity that it's finally time to cough, the four inch phones in right? And I part as well. Yes. Exactly. Okay. So if they if they did that teen on the six screen on up, so. Yeah. Yeah. Seven inches the minimum. You don't have to worry about supporting the any more. You put the new I chat with a four point seven inch screen or five inch screen about around the. And then you have a minimum display spec which allows you to be more creative, and how you actually use that screen with the new spring bowl, whoever wherever they gonna say that's where I'm hoping it will go no convinced I going to do that. Because. Tonight. Does I think the five s is going to get the book because we've already seen them? Stop to limit features like FaceTime now. So I think it'd be way if it carry on staying, and they've given it so much like his is lost forever and twelve really helps it performance, but it does feel like it's kind of at the end of that twelve fixes it. And let's not break with their team. Yeah. Like a good spot. And I read I think anyone would be mad if the five drops boys like six years and support. Thighs perfectly fine in my opinion. Because the like two years newer than five asked in terms of the chip generation. Yeah. But the is already not south. So they've sort of that problem. Yeah. So we'd have to worry about that one. So they could cut off four finds out say, and I think people general be happy with that like on. Everyone's like, we left the ESE link do four points if they want to address that market four point seven jazz NBA like you can make it small fine for the touch give it for seven inch screen and. Yeah, probably keep touch ID again. They'll get any colors, and they'll get the new chip and Dhabi about headphone, Jack at US lightning the Hedera jagged. Probably the funny because because it's the most music product, right? Yeah. But as long as you put the headphones in the box for lightning think, it's fine. Yeah. I think people get on with the. Yeah. The reality is the touches for kids. Right. Like, it's not for adults. Who have we'd had find think there are some some uses for like the -pointment where an eye pad even for the same price wouldn't be right? But it's like it's easier. To manage the touch for different reasons. Yeah. I go to a few restaurants and stuff sometimes and they use touches as the menu. When you with the survey uses you say, what you want to know, they just tap it on the Pawtucket when a bigger ipad would be too much in eighteen t store where they have like wearable holsters for the ipad, the whereas like an iphone or an ipod touch gone your pocket. I remember when aware at the apple store. It was always I think the whole time I work there. There was it was I touch based. But eventually switched to. I only got where I was no longer there. But there was also some roles what you care on an ipad. And it was like, you know. You know, you weren't doing much with your hands at that point. Your job was to manage that ipad, different different ways. So yeah, I mean, I saw that. There's a big form. One possibility before this rumor was like the ipad mini update somehow address the touch market, and I can go away and that hot is like officially dead. But I think there's a big difference in in. The ipod touch Cise on the ipad size for the phones. So even even the many, I'm thinking fingers class this when pants out is the only the I only mention of it. But that would a car is not a terrible source for this kind of thing. So one thing that women actually is for about the last six months, if you register a new six generation, I touch and then look at the find my iphone emails, you get you've rigid new IRS device. Yeah. For whatever reason it bugs reports it as a seventh generation ipod touch. So you buy apple touch, you set it up activate and then apple send you an Email telling you, congratulations of San up Uni seven. So it'll have whatever chip we had six months ago. All right. It's a funny book. This weekend. If I MAC happy hour is sponsored by upstart applying for a loan a lot like applying for a job.

Thanks store for sponsoring nine to five MAC. Happy hour. I made the other half of the Mac OS car story is they they don't not say that the iphone might go to UC, very, it's not a direct report of iphone switching DSP. See? I think they kind of say is like people who are too. Yes. We're talking about the iphone maybe going to USC. But it's it's enough to say that someone thinks on maker USCCA, right? I guess. They make reference to the ipad pro in twenty eight teen going from lightning DSP, see. And so I don't think it should be confused. Like, the the the USB cable changing, I think it's clear like what they're saying. Is that that someone saying the iphone may go to USC? And not the cable with the port on the phone. But it's not a it's not a again, this is a packed up sort of like reports and rumors that are not like, you know, everything's behind it. But it was putting quite typical for the star of the year this year as fair people like to make stuff up all dressed up nicely. You know, everyone just likes high price. The is the new season apple products. What's going to happen? Well, guess isn't. Because that's all it is the source thing isn't really pin down yet. So you got the problem with they mentioned like from CS knowledge riot. Experts. Tell you wherever you want. We have USB products the app tended to use as you. But now, we think state or any some lightning finds like. We we don't. The decisions probably down. But it's still early enough that the Pol style radio league through Chechnya. And we haven't seen schematics and stuff that really show. What poise is it going to be? I'm one of the features that I won't from new iphones. The change from Lyon to USPA is really low on my list. I would affect you. Yeah. The things like the fact is species in a low line important. It makes very little difference to me really like. Yeah. I just have charge. My phone. I have cable I have to lightning cables one in the office and one in the bedroom, and then plug them in or I can use what is charging. If I if I wanted to do that. Or if apple funny releases the amount instead. Like, I do my very ready plug my phone in like when I'm doing development. I just have lightning Capers in the office ready to go that was used. I'm not really gaining anything. I don't. I ready through the need to I don't plug my phone into an extended display over sudden to do something is just not much even the pro so far there is much that you can do with your see that you couldn't do with with with lightning. Plus adapter. I'd say. At least on the ipad. You can kind of like plug in some of the dengue like, for instance, on the ipad, you can plug in the ST card Rita. You can plug in a camera unplug into play because it can spell both steer doing like freshman east case where you're reviewing photos, unimportant at the same time the phone you just never gonna really want to do like. Get the urge I'm like, please put you we'll say if I had the choice, you know, Zach you want lightning or USCCA. I would pick US just on the ipad on the MAC, and I would still be faced with like the fact that a lot of the mouse and keyboard the apple TV remote that those things they'll use lightning. But. And if this ever happens people aren't over thirty Penn switch people remember it being last year. Yeah. There that that would happen again. Even better like, it, doesn't it wasn't really product is rather volume machine and spending a thousand dollars plus on that kind of stuff kind of going in full people just grading their fight on a two year psycho, my my connect don't work anymore, especially as the looks like the import to follow kind of squint at it. Kind of looks to say, it's the same shape, essentially is confusing. The thing is if the next iphone was used PC. And I one just by to actually USPA just replaced the lining Capers today. I don't think I'd get any benefits of it really like. A very very like secondary concern. And then you see the Fantino which has lightning and the lightning smaller than us busy. And yet I still struggling to fit in the balm of of of the ten oh, wait angle that doesn't seem like they're even ready yet to actually do like. The motivations and the when the. With with the ipad. It's like you can plug with this stuff, and you can plug in steno plug into gigabit ethnic. If he won't you can plug into keyboards you can plug into extend displays you can plug into cameras. It's like with the phone, those use cases, don't really exist. So you're ready getting the symmetry if you happen to own species products, every rose, and you have to remember that we're in the macro have new species pose everywhere. The most people buying have best like windows computers, and the and the vast majority of people don't plug into anything apart from challenging it. So. Like those concerns kind of. It's just lower priority for me. My contribution is to say that that that part of macro to car story was just putting out at the hearing it, and that is not again, it's like a rumor level not report level. And if I had the choice, I want you must be selfishly because then I'd have same port on the iphone the ipad. And what he's on the MAC? And I think the Andrew people will love it too. Because I pick UCF getting the option he's not like desperate for. Yeah. And then the follow to this today on leaks, partnered with a compare Ah-ha to say what he seeing is no USB. So on leaks had render of you, what might be an iphone eleven this last weekend or so and. This week. He's he's he's back with a different mode, which we'll discuss in a moment. But he also had some specs to share today, which which the, you know, the first thing is no go see lightning stays, and then tummy what else is going on here with cameras backs in a lie. Like, yes, they they did the new rendering which will get another tiny designed for the triple lens thing. And then separately they had some like a spec sheet by things that they believe and essentially is camera graves, so the the Sophie a moment is seven mega pixels, right? Yeah. And now it's going up to ten into this report and the twelve megapixel censored would go up to fourteen. That's both Joe senses. At least regard to fourteen. And then the third camera system would remain at ten. Actually, ten is Laura than 'cause I invite cameras on the back of twelve the the idea he'd be upgrading them to fourteen and then another one which is ten mega pick Zea could be some benefits to having a lower megapixel camera in the mix. I think I think there's I think it's been. I mean for the longest time like apple is staying at eight and just getting better and better at having eight megapixel camera. I think maybe there could be some benefits adding that ten back there like it could be awesome for situations. But at any rate twelve to fourteen on the dual a new in the this before his ten which is the same as the front camera going from eight to ten so I think what the the front moving. I think that's what it is like for the longest time eight four s you know, nothing five and it was like the forest like kind of regarded like one of the first really good, I phoned photography iphones. And now I've got that like on the front of the camera. We got a pretty good camera. So again, mega mega pixels on. Right, right. The jump from twelve to fourteen the size of the image capture. Right and. Yeah. And so much you can have you can have a fourteen megapixel image as just fourteen million pictures of nothing big image. But there's nothing out there or you can have a ten like they're a camera. We have an we used to have an old digital camera that was like dedicated and that would take eight megapixel and most of those fires. It took still look over over. And you know, the modem divan shells just because it was a massive lens on the back. So it could take him and address grain and less noise. And that's really what is comes down to. I think the we have been long enough on the same sensor essentially low same since a housing for the cameras. So if anything this suggests that they've actually like generation -ly moved along to better cameras together if correct right, correct? Yeah. But they actually like megapixel numbers of kind of different APPA loves to tout. How many non I may is the pictures are Paul like, it's one point three microns now focus they will have the photo. They bring those buzzwords. I'm sure that I get. Combining triple lands on megapixel upgrades. Clearly, the camera is going to be a big fuck because issue now the difference in this on leaks. Second phone eleven render based on on what he's received to be put types of the new iphone design. This visually way different than what we discuss. What are we go? Yeah. The the week. I one was the rectangle in the Kona with Wade placements of the dots. Like, a triangle shape and flashing the microphone flight around there. And it was probably big about the size of an screen in the corner. This one is like you're taking you're going back to the horizontal camera system. Joel camera like on the. Yeah. From the previous generation and making it slightly wider and putting aside camera but in between, and then moving that whole Mojo to the center, horizontally and shifted downwards the fine vertically Lobi as where I was in the top left corner is in like the middle of apple logo. And it does look a little sleeker than the quadrangle Rendez. But it cut reminds me of like an under your phone because of the Android phones, put cameras in the middle rather in the corner that really matters. But it just kind of shout me and the big takeaway all of these render is that everything is really like densely packed together. It's like the one discussed two we could go was so ugly that we don't think anyone would like mock it up for fun. And then this one is like really clever, and it's way, better, balanced and visually just looks better. But there's a lot of lot about that's really clever like and to me, it was if it was like one a dislike enthusiasts would more competent post is like a fun thing. No saying that is not rally necessarily, but it does look kind of willing towards could even make this like Batty making the camera system big. And you putting in the Cameron to like? Putting another Cameron to the flash isn't a dedicate Howell anymore. It's like a ring around the Senate camera. Why does that make the flash less strong and less intense like the actual rely gives off because smallest Fs era and B does that no affect the cameras pick? She takes like if you're taking a picture with the fall right camera. The flash not a wig position or the one in the middle. Glare on the pictures. Like, the previous agree design looked to me perfectly. But when realistic to exist where this one has more questions about this can be made in Photoshop book. This be made as an actual product share. And the I do agree looks pretty. Yeah. There's one of the things. Just last week my feeling on it was that you would upgrade to it. Because of what it could offer. But not because of how it looked and this one like what it can offer maybe cool, but also just kind of looks neat to like, they knew design iphone. It's different rent is at the front as well over you see some screen differences where they say the beds zoos and the lesson Orion. The token the bomb a slightly slimmer. So the millimeters even Trinka gave in less and the notches smaller because they've moved the peace. So he's no in line with the other cameras is kind of above the in that same lip so essentially the notches less wide because it's not preceding the flood. Eliminate the IRS into the real camera and the in a row is just putting the lenses in a row and moving the AP's upwards. It looks like yeah. You can look at this thing and say that that one is much newer than than the ones we have. Now, it's fresh. It's this is like the super optimistic idea of what may look like when this case, maybe and eleven max because I think there were some WSJ had kind of maybe the max gets three cameras in the current. The non max version doesn't six. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I kind of just like last week. We don't know what to think of this, really. We're not gonna like as soon as we have until there's some some some like leaks of the the the blueprints of things schematic stuff like only permits areas. The apple is flowing by for these them. Hearts around. But. Like, he's no unusual for apple to have competing test. Runs hardware of the same product. Like, the the iphone seven generation they had they had seven plus that didn't have a camera, and then they had one that did like something they wanted to ship the jewel Cameron beef. If it couldn't be done at the end, they could cut I often stupid. There were other plus any more. This is like to derisively different privatize like designed from completely different ends of the spectrum skeptical. The I don't necessarily agree the narrative that both of these flying around like ver- star. We're in January kinda like ready and be these zones are just. So different like they've been. It's not inventive at different companies or like different. Like eleven and then I phone twelve to come after eleven like if you're imagining how this the quadrangle one look more like an the next random extra revision. And if you look at the history, the six loss at six six seven, I four generations resist most significant change after the one year, essentially, so I don't know. I I'm perfectly fine. If this ships because some people didn't how you can say that now. This is so much leak and people say why did they move the camera bump downwards, I think logically there. So the internally to the spice it can avoid the face. I d comers because quite deep. So if you're going to bring it if you're gonna make it bigger it would hit the notch. If it was top left. So if you bring it down you have to bring it down enough to know hit the the notch in the middle. So it kind of goes below you mentioned the internal layout. Yeah. But yet to me lose weight per year than the quadrangle thing. I think it looks cool. I would love it. If this was design I feel like the last one that was always more realistic is because. Physically like, you said what they can build. But we'll say, and they lost one would fit with a family like what they're gonna do with the ten hour and not not max tennis to the next gen eleven's. The triple camera. They just the same as the current generation with the lenses in the corner. Still tonight. They wait if it was over they like put them all in this design, only, the bigger one has the extra lens on the back. So wait question. I don't think some people are like, maybe the tennis max gets this cool design in the ten. He gets the quadrangular. But that doesn't make that doesn't line that with the Wall Street Journal remote under the biggest high end one guest. Triple camera say, I couldn't reconcile it that way. This weekend.

Smart battery case for their for tennis Tatar, and I've tennis max this is the same design that ninety five max key Rambo, I discovered glyphosate and IRS code. And then later found an image of of how the back of it would look and no surprises here in just like how it looks. I think kind of prizes are well he'd found references to three different models, which suggested one free phone this year, which which was new turned out to be correct. The big surprise is while charging support which we talked about on this show is like kind of a stretch. Do you know kind of neat? But but don't expect it and the price. So what do we have here? That one hundred twenty nine dollars. I call on this show going away higher. I haven't referenced it. But I believe you said that the Maxwell would be one hundred ninety nine dollars yet. Based on the other one bribe. I did say you're insane point. Okay. Well, based on the iphone tennis, max folio case being priced at one twenty nine. It was like that's pretty expensive. It's it's a leather wallet. Like when you put a battery in it into metallic like some kind of chip to drive at all. Then it costs me more. But it seems to me that they took. I mean, they don't do this on any of the phones deal like a five hundred dollar difference. In the case is they don't do the same case is unlike anything across the board like even the series are different across the board. The MAC bookcases are different across the board. I think it's the only thing where this win price for for all three sizes. So it's new in that regard to me, but is thirty dollars more than the Ivan seven small battery. Nine dollars. Yeah. But you get wireless two. So that's yeah. You get one of those for it and the batteries actually bigger. So you get some like. Putting the price overseas. And plus there's ten more fabric, momentary. Oh, because the finds a big, oh, really you think it works out. You've got the same launch colors as you did with the original smart, better case, black or white. Was it black before it was a grey charcoal grey? Yeah. Pretty sure was why chuckle gray was on code Wyan, black white and black the leader read the more callers at least read for like a park ride. Here got white. We've got black again plucking white for all three sizes. This is only the second apple case for the iphone ten are the first being the clear case. And say comparing this the this one looks much value for money than the fighting. Okay. Yeah. I mean, it's different needs. But it's I agree with that. Like, they take the lowest price say say for the iphone ten ask that that size, and they could have gone like one twenty nine one thirty nine hundred forty nine may even they didn't need to the board thing. Which is fair for you know. Compared to what you had before this time. It's pretty good. It was better than I spent. I was kind of expecting one fifty or something in the way it came out. Was it just shows up on apple dot com? A thing all of them. There's no press release. There's no like. Formal reviews that are like save just like it's online. Now, you can buy it. You can order ill arrive tomorrow the soonest it'll be an apple store this week. That's it. And unlike every other case has is has the bottom lip for the ten series, right? The gestures are going to be slightly more than like, the silicon in other cases, which lead the ball my in which I really like this close up. But interestingly, this does not have the big chin of the old battery cases because the ObamaCare would have of the chin of the phone and could not button section, and then it'd be a decent inset of just space before you got to the actual ball of the thing. This one has a very slim lip that goes around the corner from the front just looks like a silicone case when they moved to the headphone Jack from the seven the smart better cases, pre at the same dimensions. Right. And then here you see that. It's like I mean, it's the case for the most part like there's some bad light import kind of behind it going up into the battery. Kind of before the battery that the line import would be like in line with the with the lining of the actual right like on the same plane. Whereas now the lime impose in the rise. Biff the hump of the of the bag it's like back in the area almost. Or bit down even because oversee the cases had the hump in the middle. And then it'd be flushing the ball. And right like they wouldn't have that resume bring the further down. They can bring line above essentially, which has allowed them to remove that gap. And a if people were like charging, it doesn't have the let me point side anymore like it just charges if I'm using she still has have to plug the phone into the internal line impose, well, you can charge the case in which if you want to you can plug in with the wire like it doesn't charge the fire using cheat through the back of the Gauls like just so inefficient. That. Yeah. I think overall this is pretty compelling like the fact that it exists is neat. And then the fact that they have wireless around that. There are other cases with wireless charging, I think like some smaller companies make some but nothing like mass market and. Yeah. And if you look at the pricing is not too far away really from apple office, overcharging by mal hip, and you'll get the same minutes as the old one would which is it's a little bit different design. We went in when it was a rumor a leak really of how the battery is full with within the back. But then doesn't go to the top. But doesn't all over the bottom for the most part? It's like a little bit different there, which I think really like more balance in the olden wise. It's like not like a humpback. It's just like a Bolger in the bottom two thirds of or so I think is better balanced that way, but you look at the benefit of the top of kind of stretching. So you can take it off easily without it being like a pole part to to part thing. And just the fact that you don't you don't have to choose. I thought it'd be fair to you can have wireless charging or you're going to a battery case pick wine. But in this case, you don't lose out on that. It's pretty neat tech one of capacity. There is a ten point one while about tree which is out from nine six of the seven case is bigger capacity in stats and in terms of railroad apple says the getting between like four seven seventy seventy five percent permanent. You'd get with no case. I like tennis goes from twelve hours to twenty one hours internet browsing. Get like more seventy five percents. Imagine. If you imagine waking up with your tennis today, and it says one hundred percent on the battery indicator tomorrow, you companies one hundred seventy five like, that's essentially what's happening. Okay. Yeah. And then the tennis is smokers studying twenty and ten shifting twenty. But even the people when I tweeted luckily table showing the differences and people complain the ten hour improvement is not much. But I think it good contrast. Here is lake people say the tennis, the normal tennis batteries kind of like average, right? But in the ten has amazing bachelor life, right? But that's only a twenty five percent difference 'cause guy from twelve to fifteen and so you're taking that fifty now which everyone who will quote, unquote, amazing like all the tech Genesis minister the new trend on buying ten. I'll just because about she lost. Like, everyone keeps tweaking that. Of course, the booed. And so if you get about your case, not one you're going fifteen to twenty two so adding on like two more times the difference between the tennis and the tunnel by sensually like, I think it'd be it. We knows but whichever one you. Get oversee the biggest benefit is if you have the tennis. But even on the ten all if for some reason, the batch life isn't good enough, then you can have even more. And you know. Yeah. This is anything. I mean, like we talked about before that that people still use the iphone six S seven versions of these cases or the Lereia phones, and they've just they never made one for the eight or the ten and. Guess the eight of here because it turns out there's a lot of this. But it turns out you apple says, you they break out in a document that you can't use the tennis case for the ten. And the only like dimension changes. There is at the tennis camera is a little bit little bit bigger. So the ten case would be tight on tennis phone, but this is the other direction. So we thought well at work in his Bill but loose earned the camera. And turns out it does work you just need. Now. This offer be updated for to recognize it probably on any of the iphone that work with it. And then for the eight they this is no solution there. I guess because the camera was like, totally different dimensions and everything. You've got an iphone ten correct. Okay. And have you bought one of these one kind of? For the gen X aspect me think. 'cause I've said before I walked from Higham side. Most of the time is charge from bedroom. Motels from office of an ET. So I'm not like desperately looking about life in the time batch life is right. There are some times when I'm doing when I'm out for the day on guy dry driving around going across the country visiting and stuff. The batch extra be nice. But I am kind of buying this to kind of like mess around with my first batch case I voted as well. So it's kind of like new new experience, and because sports Chee thinking longtime like the app how thing and how it's gonna work on the app, and so I kind of on a whim more than a solid case myself and nothing about it. We knew knew the league. So you could consider it then. Yeah, I thought about it. And I would basically come to if it didn't have I was going to bother because I know using the when it comes if it doesn't share going to take you on an off it has a pick one up and because the price wasn't ridiculous as well. These price. I'll come on board. Right. We and I when I it it wasn't one hundred percent if the ten would work with no true. Sure. So kind of taking five life. He's a bit of a hassle, but it really doesn't work. I'll just retired. Oh, set out one owner. No, no, no big deal. Right. I'm on board. I was at one of the people clamoring for more about your life. But I wanna play around with it. And see what is because especially because the designs change like is moham- pain, it kind of which is down. So I thought would be a cool thing to like have and play around with say I'm getting one tomorrow to mess about with the bit. And I'll probably end up just keeping around. Then when the ships hopefully, soon, I'll try on that. And maybe I'll decide if actually wanna keep it or something like that. I don't see as something in writing to useful. Ten and that, you know, it depends on what the new iphone is in the fall. But like that you plan on keeping that from ten four long as you can appropriate way this year on on the ten says, it's like if the camera guys is significant, and I've got great. Yeah. Well, I ordered the phone tennis. Max better case like the moment that we saw the link scope com. Because I've not owned one either never had one for the seven or so, but but clicking back, the ideas pretty appealing of having something, you know, that has. The lock screen shows like the batteries Independen kinda neat. So it's been the widget. Like, this is something I've not experienced before kinda neat. And then the Wallace hardening support really got because I didn't expect that I didn't leak it wasn't in the code. And sure enough it works and impression with that. The only thing is I know I'm not gonna keep tennis mass when new iphones about I will. I don't love the max is after several months of usage. It's just like it doesn't mention this time. And again like it doesn't do enough for me that smaller phones don't do even with screen difference. Like, it doesn't take this space in a way, maybe was will change that. But for now. The bigger size doesn't quite outweigh the fact that it's a bigger phone too. And whenever I hold like even at ten or the size feels nice, and then a ten or ten s like this is immaterial Vilnai's like almost like, how'd you how'd you shrink it down to the size. It's really neat. So I am pretty positive whatever. The new iphones are all want to go down to the I give the same options. Now, just newer. I do like, oh like look at ten for a little while in and. And it's just I like the alleged screen a lot having on the watch seeing on the phone it appeals to me. I wish it was on the MAC and the ipad like having a la- TV like being in a dark room, and like the black being actually black like really really like that. So I think my next iphone would be the five point eight inch version of. Even even if only as a joke camera. That's tricky was just like the. It depends on what they do with third camera. Yeah. Yeah. Like, that's my problem is I. With a tennis psycho. If I was interested in the max, I would about graded lost. Well, I don't want to. I don't want those bigger fines. Let h findings very nice even the ten. Also is is fine. But the the the MAC sizes like so big. The closest phone seven or eight was because eating. It's a little taller like we've got gotta reach the screen, but it's a pretty pretty good size. So I ordered one of these. But it hasn't even arrived yet. And I'm kind of like getting my fix for Mike seeing the hand on reviews go out early, and it's like I will receive of already started their return process like where you have to return label even a has malleable because. But I was thinking like there's no evidence his iphone. After the new ones come out traded, and so bad and get the smaller phone, and that'll be the reason create no matter like what other what other teams that are and. Traded the phone. You can't win the battery case yet. And so it'd be a process of like selling that one. And you know, I would like the barricades for the smaller phone because the whole idea's neat. So for me. I'll try it out. You know, it would need to be like really compelling. But the the fact is like the max phone even bigger even decker even eight does out a lot about it close to double was the white of the final thing is. Yeah. And I go to bed a lotta times phone around seventy five percent. Because like, you know, I am working from my home office where I can charge. Just put my phone down on the while charger. One of the biggest killers for an average batteries on the commute, right? Like people leave much harder to. Yeah. Exactly. Like, you're at the office. But you don't have to plug in loads of people. My parents. Nicole center, but she's out to a phone out. Pretty much toes. Just sits in the bag and then drains down the day. Right. It's before us like we're in Heim offices. We can plug it in. It's not gonna listen and the weekends, you know, and travel like those situations worse like this is the people that deal with you know. But but for me I thought about it's like there's nothing here. I'm glad this exists. And I think it's awesome. And I think if you don't plan on like changing, your iphone in nine months or so less than that. Then then go for it, even if you wanna get the same size iphone, it feels like it's risky that it won't fit that X phone because of some camera change. Yeah. Design, no be compatible. I big raises me buying. It was kind of going to do hands on with Patrick as like a newcomer. And then using the tennis case with ten us. Do a big question. I mean, let people just want to know like, I'll take some close ups of the the speaker difference and stuff and then reconsider after that. It definitely wasn't like I've been waiting for when the first leaks. That was cool. I really wanna buy right away. We did we did see just back. Our again, we did see apple have another power friends mistakenly appeared on the description for the tennis battery case, I believe appeared in the US as well instantly. And then it stuck around on the Malaysian apple store for a while. And then removed and specifically said the the tennis Patrick works with the air pow Wallace charging and other Chiesa fide challenges and charging capitals as if that was the actual like full brand name. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think this people like clearly they wanted to release the battery case and the power at the same time. I expanded them mocking description for this was written months and months ago back when these bachelor cases, we went to be released in four twenty eighteen pursuing the code leaks, and when they were writing well app house out by the end of the year. So we didn't he's about ready. We can put it in and then late to in our and this happens like if if it was a sign the app, how imminent they wouldn't delete a reference there any delaying. It was a mistake that leave and the in the paper manual, but you can from the apple store out tiered. Apparently that there is no power mentioned on the packaging, for these cases entirely. Yeah. So that was a mistake that was not made. This is I'm glad this exists. Mine mine will arrive, and I'll probably it's like non destructively, try it out and return it try it out like C H E things. Like officials for me. Or like, I could decide this is Neil keep it and then just sell it. But it seems like pain, and there's no way you're going to get back one hundred thirty bucks on this thing in nine months. So and you could sell it in a moment on. If it's like supply constraining Ling. My head. I'm like, I'll keep this case Iran, then when in spring of just get rid of it, then if you I mean, like because I kind of want to use it kinda wanna place on the anti like, see if it works if the animation on the screen knows about this month battery cases stuff like that. Like how interprets each other because if it's compatible Klay there's going to be hopefully integrations with that. But after that like my kind of intrigue in the product kind of fights away because I don't really have like I need in my life kind of east guys for. Yeah. Cool. I'm glad it exists. And it would have been kind of a bummer like the have the leaks happen. And then be so close to a part of the never happen. And the turnaround time was like a little bit of month from the beginning of December to the middle of January. We are it's a cool thing. And guess next week. We'll have a little bit to say about like how using them has been. So I'll have one just for that purpose to. But like I said, I think mine's a go go back just because I know I'm not gonna have this phone at the end of the year and. Like, thirty bucks a hundred thirty bucks. So it's not not with out if I'm not going to keep it in the family. So all right. Let's pockets of this week. You can follow us on Twitter map whole Zach Benjamin you are Bs at and you can also Email us at happy hour at nine to five MAC con. And we'll be back week by everybody.

Owing to the pandemic: Britains budget

"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist. Radio i'm your host jason palmer. Every weekday we provide a fresh perspective on the events shipping. You'll shifting the planet too low or no carbon economies is going to be expensive but not every intervention is as pricey as the next. We take a look at new ways to think about costs. And how policymakers can determine. What's best in terms of value for money and on the island of zanzibar off the east coast. The government owns most of the land. But it's citizens that own each and every fruit tree. They're handed down the generations and keeping track of who owes home is no easy task. First up though. Richie soon sooner has been britain's chancellor of the exchequer it's keeper of the national purse-strings for just over a year and today marks another significant moment in a tenure defined by covid. Nineteen this afternoon. Mr sooner will deliver his twenty twenty one budget. The government's tax and spending plans for britain emerging from a pandemic. he'll have to balance protecting jobs and supporting businesses with beginning to repay. The i watering two hundred and seventy one billion pounds for three hundred and eighty billion dollars borrowed by the government over the past year ahead of the speech. The treasury released a highly produced film with an upbeat. Mr sooner talking over stirring music. I mean we've had a lot thrown at us next year everywhere. I just see that. Spirit of resilience. Mr sooner has earned himself a reputation for competence the dashing and whip smart forty year old is the bookmakers favourite to be the next prime minister. But i i ll have to plot a careful course. Through the end of the pandemic british economy at the moment is about ten percent smaller than it was a year. Ago duncan weldon britain economics editor despite the overall economic picture as the chancellor delivers his statement. Today actually looks a bit better than it was and the men news for. That is the good news. We've had in recent weeks in recent moves on the pace of the vaccine rolette so things are still pretty bad. The economy is ten percent smaller than it was. Government debt is much higher. The government's deficit the amendments is much higher. Consumer spending is depressed. But now we have a roadmap to reopening now. We have the vaccine rolling out. It looks like the second half of this year. We're going to see very fast dancing economy. And what are we expecting from the budget. That comes out today. What do we already know as with any british budget. A lot of the announcements have been well trialled over the last few weeks. But i think what we're expecting today for missy neck is really a budget in two halves. So for the next few months ahead of the economy really reopening in late june. We're going to see an awful lot of these extraordinary supports games being extended so the furlough scheme under which the government pays up to eighty. Percent of the wages of followed employees will be extended the grant. The small firms will be extended the subsidized government lending firms will be extended. So it's gonna be generous but for the next for four months. But that really is sort of the suga sweetening some quite bitter medicine because the chancellor is quite worried about the public finances in the long run and today it seems he's gonna be setting out an agenda of tax cuts to try and repair as he sees it public finances and what it seems like is the two big sources of revenue are going to be tax rises the public quite like increasing corporation tax or tax rises which the government hopes. The public won't really notice as much so freezing. The fresh holes at which you've had different rates of income tax and so do you think that these more popular or less noticed taxes will fill the hole. How big the whole is depends on two things. Fest fate depends on the forecasts. That will get today from the office for budget responsibility. The government's independent fiscal watchdog. That does its forecasts but really how big the whole is depends on what the chancellor is trying to achieve. It's very much define your own hole so at the moment you know. Government debt to gdp is reason to about one hundred percent of gdp that just over two trillion bands. The national debt now stands at. What is the chance to try to achieve. If the chancellor is just trying to stabilize it at about one hundred percent of gdp stop it going any higher but not worrying about reducing it then. The fiscal target. He sets himself probably won't require a huge amount of tax rises. In addition to what we've already heard about if only ever hand the chancellor wants to go further if he decides he would rather reduce debt to gdp from one hundred percent to ninety percent or eighty percent than he will probably need to go further with spending cuts or tax rises. You know right at the moment. Government debt to gdp in britain is the highest. It's been in decades but and this is very important. Because interest rates are so low the cost of servicing that debt is the lowest it's been in decades. We've got more dead but we're paying so little interest on it at the moment that the burden of that debt is very low now what the treasury are worried about is what happens if interest rates rise. So that talking about this fiscal repair job almost as a precautionary mitigating against that risk. But this is still a lot of if and a lot of dependency on how vaccine rollouts go at what point in the in the long run future. Do we get off this kind of economic war footing. I mean that's a very good question. If you think about what we've had over the last year in the economy in some ways it makes perfect sense. Doesn't it if you order. All of the shops and all the pubs to close the economy gets smaller. That's pretty obvious. The question becomes what happens when you reopen them. How much lasting. Structural damage has been done to the economy. And that's a question to true won't know the answer for at least a few more months but it's a crucial question not just for economic growth in the future but for the health of the public finances if has been permanent damage of two will free percent of potential. Anti putt. Done to the economy me. By the last year the taxes will have to rise just to support the same level of spending. We used to have if only of a hand as being less structural damage done economy than there will be less of a case for aggressive tax rises in the future. And mr soon. Mike is relatively new in the job of chancellor and was relatively inexperienced. When he got there how would you assess his performance during what could be called a challenging year it's been a challenging and it's very long hair as well. Hasn't it missing ex performances. Chancellor has had so far in phases so in the initial days of the pandemic. He was very very fast to recognize. How serious the crisis was and you know putting in place but were quite extraordinary support packages and moving much quicker than the government often does receive an awful lot of price for that. He had a much more tricky time over the summer and the autumn he was one of the leading voices in the cabinet. Arguing for a faster reopening ahead of what turned into the second wave. And he's seen much more hawkish on this supposed trade off between the economy and public health but when asked in the third phase he is fully behind the prime minister. And the health secretary in terms of recognizing we need a cautious approach to reopening the economy. Today he is likely to extend his support at least until june july to allow the economy to reopen only slowly. His place in economic history will really depend on the decisions. He makes this budget and the next one on this big divide between should be withdrawing support now or should we be continuing with support. He may be looked back upon as the person that took the right actions in the crisis and then public finances back home san fattening or afraid if he gets that judgment call wrong. He may be looked upon as the person which slowed our recovery from this recession. Thanks very much for joining us and having me looking for a new podcast to listen to. Here's what we love.

You'll see more and more cargo bikes which Nomo by with wheelbarrow size box attached to the front and because they're a nice greet tentative to driving around local authorities have decided to subsidize them. Guys gribben is the economists. Climate risk correspondent there not of advantages in bicycle. They have health benefits and they reduce traffic. But if you look at it from a pure carbon perspective then they're not very cost efficient. How do you mean for once. Game for instance the local authorities spent three hundred and seventy thousand euros which is about four hundred and fifty thousand dollars implementing a scheme to promote the cargo bikes but in doing so they only managed to reduce emissions bhai about seven tons per year. So if you think about that. On a per ton basis that works out to about fifty thousand euros per tonne another initiative by ballads local authorities to support the sale of low-carbon heating systems the cost of apple pertemps basis were about two hundred euros per tonne competitive fifty thousand euros per so when thinking about the ways you can reduce carbon emissions. It's useful to think about cost effectiveness and while the cheapest ways to do so but how to do that across a great many technologies and platforms and ideas which the accounting look like the simplest way to do it and the way that because his favor is to impose a price on carbon and you can either do this by a straight tax on carbon or you can do this by cap and trade scheme. So that's the kind of scheme you have. In europe right now where herbert's auctioned and traded across lots of different big companies that are met lots of carbon dioxide and that creates a price on carbon as well both these techniques would encourage consumers and firms to find the cheapest ways to abate. And when i say abatement. I just been the process of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But they're quite difficult to enact politically only a fifth of the world's greenhouse gas emissions covered by an explicit carbon price. So you kind of need other tools and one to which has been suggested recently by bill gates. Billionaire philanthropist is to think about what he goes agreeing premium. And what is that. So essentially the price difference between a current technology and a zero carbon technology among the many economic activity looks. He looks at a cost of jet fuel. Jeff fuel costs around to twenty per gallon and biofuel alternatives cost about five dollars. Thirty five per gallon so in that example. The green premium is three fifteen gallon. That may not sound a very much. But if you think they're very roughly a jumbo jet we use about a gun in a fuel. A second valve is. He adds up very quickly. The reason we care about these price different says is because in instances where you have a very small price differences. There's basically very little reason for consumers not to go with low carbon option in those sectors of the economy. it's going to be relatively easy to decarbonise. But when you have a very big green premium than those areas gates argues you should focus more on innovation and introduced regulation to try to level the playing field. This approach is just the latest in a long list of ideas of different ways to attempt to calculate the costs of climate intervention one favorite method of marshall abatement costs essentially quite some the green premium. But they also take into account potential impact of abatement so with these varying approaches. I mean how does that translate into policy. How do you turn these numbers into the kind of change that you're talking about. Once you've done. These calculations was quite useful to do is to take all the interventions that you possibly could roll out and to chop them on. What could marcham abatement cost curve. These then joe all the possible ways you can decarbonise for cheapest to most expensive and also how much actual abatement each one of those options gives you for example if you think about switching the coal fired power stations in the asia region to gas that gets you quantum lots of abatement at achieved cost by comparison if you to try to decarbonise steel mills in the world. I mean that would also get you a federal of abatement but that'd be far more expensive and so these are to compare the different impacts on the different costs of all the various clem interventions. What are some general features of these curves of at these trade offs in this way late. Tend to get most bang for. Your buck is in making buildings. More energy efficient that might be by installing small heating and cooling systems or insulation if you take all the costs and benefits associated with doing something like this you'll actually get a negative cost so in the end that will save consumers money through cheaper power bills the next excessive options tends to be switching sources of power to renewable is so the price of renewables has plummeted in the last decade. And then after that there's basically kind of less agreement about what the next best options are but there's more agreement about what the most expensive areas of the economy ought to decarbonise so they tend to be bits of transport particularly chips and planes bits of heavy industry so steel and cement and agriculture. Some cows bausch me fool those options there really on clean cheap scalable alternatives. And so i guess is those high gain high cost interventions where the innovation really could come in. This is the chart. That every green minded person and policymaker should have the theories works really well but in reality the massive really really hard to do. There's a lot of variation in different countries as to how cheap and effective renewables could be another difficulty is our prices are changing. Green technologies really really quickly so the price of soda panels comedown by around eighty percent in the last decade that means the these calculations get out of date very quickly of the problem. Is that the economic model designed to look into this. Don't take into account the feedback loops from more deployment of renewables which leads to lower prices. Which then in turn needs more province of euros. That's very hard to modelo the forecasters. It means that the cost estimates of these daily cost cuts can be way off quite quickly even with all of those uncertainties. You reckon this is still a useful tool for counting the costs. yeah. I think it is useful. Because it gives politicians and others simple way of thinking about an comparative costs of decarbonisation. The simplification also has dangers. These kalsa constantly moving and big gaps in variations understanding an estimates that it is really important that we start to grapple with these costs because climate change is only going to get more urgent and a lot of governments have severe cost constraints particularly after the covid nineteen pandemic and so this is something we need to think really seriously about. Thanks very much for joining us guy. Thises off the coast of tanzania. The island of zanzibar has more than four million coconut trees and each and every one of them has an owner. Land is hard to come by with fruit. Trees are handed down the generations so some withered mango tree by the side of zanzibari road could be a family. Heirloom historically coconut trees. Very important for people in zanzibar. They not only provide sustenance. The leaves also provided roofs for heise's people produced cooking oil and continue to produce coconut oil and sir coconut trees are valuable and worth having olivia. Acklin writes about africa for the economist. Land itself is owned by the government so orlando's public but fruit trees can be bought and sold and they can be passed on for countless generations. So how how exactly does that work out in practice. So local officials with knowledge of the area manage the system. And so i met villa honey. Who was a local chief known as a shield and it's his responsibility to remember who owns every single coconut tree in and around his village council pool pulu and so i stood with the life outside his house and i pointed to these a swaying palm trees in the distance and i said who owns that one and he had an encyclopedic knowledge. So he'd pointer tree in say for example that one belongs to me chanber and that one over there belongs to hasheem. Mccarthy comes mcconnell and he gave the names of every single owner every single coconut tree that we see His rule is a a one man. Tree historian is especially tested when someone wants to lease the land. So how does it work. Then if the government owns the land someone wants to to lease the land but then has to deal with these trees the belong to someone else. So you can lease the land for up to ninety nine years in zanzibar so it's relatively easy to a qua- a beachside plot of land and even a permit to build on it but it might take years to identify the owner of every single fruit tree or coconut tree that sprites on the land and pay them off and so that result in a lot of dealmaking between the owners of the trees and whoever has has possession of the land yes on. It's the process fruit with complications So joyce number boswell As a kenyan lady who owns a hotel in the north of the island and when she first came about this whole concept of tree owners and landowners was completely in utah and so It was a revelation that we couldn't just say okay. Here's the amount of money. So when she understood that she had to buy the trees in the land separately. She spoke to the and hope that he would be able to pay each of each tree. But then the dispute started and so people turn up and say that you give them money to the wrong person and actually this tree. My father left it to me but my brothers claiming it's his. This did not end there because even after paying for the second time there will be that person who come to say no no no it did not belong to those two guys below to me so it went on honestly for almost three years. Luckily the trees at the time quite cheap and went around thirty dollars a piece but in the last fifteen years land prices in zanzibar and so have the cost of trees to how much is a coconut tree worth now so nowadays a coconut tree on zanzibar most desirable stretch of land could go up to two thousand dollars and so for example in joyce's plot of land that were fifty trees so this is getting pretty expensive. And what does that shift in trading mean for the future of the island. Do you think so will be an entirely bad thing. Results are springing up across zanzibar white sand beaches to cater for an ever growing number of tourists lots of them from russia and some of these developments recruiting the coastline so the added complication of having to buy land. Entries separately might hinder some more hasty development which i think is no bad thing also locals lot of are very poor can make great prophets of their ransom trees islands. A to get much richer selling trees to hoteliers than they all by flogging. A few coconuts on the beach tourists. Thanks very much for joining us. Libya thanks very much doocy.

There's a lot of the weather fucked a lot of things up especially the fedex hub and was in memphis fucked up a lot of stuff i. I was trying to get some recording equipment.

That fed ex was trying to figure out where to get it. Get this man's jacket to him. You fox let me make it clear. Though the people who work for fedex and ups and usps our heroes for not enough money the amazon workers who deserve to unionize and deserve actual real wages and improper treatment and health insurance. And all those things like. It's not your fault. I'm not complaining about the service. I'm complaining about my own. Need to have clothes in my closet. Which i don't need so let's just say this is a total waste of time and i am a selfish person. I've salary to all the postal workers complaining at all four deserve my shit full circle. What does something you think is underrated getting dressed in the morning. This is gonna be a theme for today. Get dressed in the morning. I don't know if the last time i was on here said the same thing. But i'm gonna say it again. If i did get dressed in the morning. I have a rolling rack. It is filled with close. Whatever is going on this season is going to be out on the rolling rack. Everything that. I'm not wearing out of seasons in the closet so i just go through in the morning peel through each thing. Think about what. I'm going to wear with what thing what shoes i'm gonna wear. I do this morning and my brain works better. I've been more productive than i've ever been in my whole life. When i started this routine of getting dressed every morning so long you put how long you've been doing this. How long have you been on this since quarantine. I also at the started quarantine. You're like i'm going to resolve to still do the thing of book clothes on man. I the fuck in the second like we were like okay so we can't come to the office monday outside of knowing robes. I was like okay. I'm gonna make this project for myself. And i did like a fit pick every day for the month of april right and then i thought i'm to keep going to keep doing this whenever i want and buying clothes thinking about closing an even more serious way than i did before and for some people it's stressful and annoying to think about what to wear every day but for me it's like putting a puzzle together. Yeah whatever works for you. I hustled the nice be looked fucking great most of the time. I'm just in looks. That are puzzling. Fuck uh-huh interesting four seasons total landscaping shirt underneath a lakers jersey. Where'd you get that suncoast. Motion picture actually still around. Yeah oh man. Shot up to the one at city walk have the props from time cop in the legends. Wow oh what do you think is overrated sweatpants. I this now now. You're pissed. I i'm sorry i get it. Comfort comfort is people. But i've i've found clothes that are comfortable also. Look good. like stop with the sweatpants. They're they're they're the sign of a inactive. Mind you're getting soft you've got. You're getting a little over ahead of your mar jealous or this isn't sweatpants. I think the difference is. There is a certain amount of like mental bandwidth. I can devote to what i will be wearing on my body and so just me personally when i would go in the before times. There's a little bit of ego wrapped in because you're communicating to the world. This is who. I am with my clothing. And then as the pandemic hit and that became just such a minor thing for me the focus became do not be naked. And that's really where i'm at but you know that's for you and if you think they're overrated i get at least. He's a fashion easter. I just trying to start to emerge from quarantine and begin ourselves in the world. You're going to have to stop wearing those fucking sweat sweatpants. I think we just did a story. About how architecture is going to change. Post pandemic were joggers. Joggers or the new suit pants. I think we may have fucked up fashion forever with covid hundred percent disagree. I think there's always going to be people who are going to dress up. Oh oh over sure. Either people or be in sweatpants. That's your choice. Choose for sir. You're going to stand out from the crowd or if you're going to be one of the sheep more you want to be out by sheep. Oh no sir a sheep. I am not although this is fleece that. I how sweatpants cashmere thank. You see our man. See if i had a immediately i would probably drop a blunt in the middle of karaj fucking incinerating. It'd be like this is why just need to wear like garbage bags. Do we think like genes are are neither High end nor are they comfortable. Do we think genes are gonna come back. Yeah david your take on because you come with some scathing to take. So what's what are where. Where does denim pants. The great question. I don't like jeans. Nobody really likes jeans. I feel like it was just like a thing. Where i mean like just in terms of genes i guess i don't dislike them but me know defaulted to yeah i feel like we defaulted to them because they were just like acceptable and were worn with everything. And now that we've broken through to joggers being something that you can wear with anything. I wonder if they will replace the gene. I think jeans were always the crutch for people who wanted to be comfortable red. Didn't want to be you know in their pajamas. Bro gina jeans. The casual friday Clothing option roddy loved and now that there is no such thing as casual friday. Every day is casual fried bread why where genes but genes always going to be popular with skate. Kids on joe waivers hoppy letter with carpenters. Various people who work with lathes genes broke ground. Talk but when i think about genes i think about in my head. Some guys some fifty year old dad with his polo shirt tucked into signature. Means that's about my dad. It's the wash though too. You know what i mean. 'cause there's that very standard mild trustee ringleaders tone of blue that you know might as well be a blue lives matter rally as pants all be wears a big blue stripe down the back of the us. They used to have the designs on just a big blue line. The way fashion was headed before the pandemic. We might all be wearing shirts tucked into our jeans. Because of you know the dead shoes the dad hell no saying to all the kids look and this is three washed old guys talking about fashion but like i the every time i've been out and i see like you know the zuma kids out there i'm like man y'all addressing like me when i was fourteen. Yeah that's the flex on like. Well let me go to my mother's garage real quick. Start on y'all my world industries or a hookup. Scape t right all right. We're going to take a quick break.

Pretend percents electrician dot com slash. Ts your blankly okay. And we're back and yeah let's talk about. This was kind of a nice blast from the past the past being a a month ago when donald trump was president smoker is still in power Yeah you know yes. We have issues with biden's met many of Biden's policies in the job. He's doing but this. This put muzak back to where. I was a mere month ago. This is like mental. Not even gymnastics like it's mental par core. What this fucking man is doing. So here we go. Yes biden comparatively much better than trump comparatively mothers. You can't argue that that's the whole vessel. That's how the election. That's how he won the election but like look you put us next to each other. I edge him out basically by a little bit. So what are we doing here folks. That's what happened the this man. He's been in office he's been trying to dismantle many of the fucked up policies that donald trump leftist policies. That we have called inhumane cruel Totally fucked yes but then like some kind of fucked up. Clockwork teenage mutant ninja. Gurgles himself. Stephen miller out the fucking shadows to go to on laura ingraham's hate hoedown and he must've sprayed on the wrong hair on his head today. He must have put the snowflake hair on today. Because just listen to how this man is just. He is alarmed with a this current administration's immigration policy what we are seeing here is the cruelty and inhumanity of joe biden's immigration policies. He came into office announced that there's an open tour and that young people who come into this country illegally. We're going to be resettled. Instead of returned he is forcing thousands of young children into the arms of smugglers. So yes he is. The this is the cruelty and inhumanity. The what my question is does he like. He's obviously being like cartoonish disingenuous. But like does he know. Does he think his audience knows that. And it's a bit where he's like just trying to Dramatically weaponized the criticisms of the trump administration against the biden administration. Like he can't think the people who are watching laura ingram show are like yes be kinder will. What's wrong with y'all. I think it's not because it's a it's all just an outrage football that we passed back and forth and so they you know they work better with imposition of the outrage football. Even though their policies like say a single thing that would improve the conditions. For anybody. As i like. But do you remember what i did. And he's trying to make using words like safe or whatever the hell motherfucker was pure chaos. Who is a humanitarian crisis at the border. Because of you. I think i think it's also a concerted effort by the republican party to co-opt the messaging and the language of the left. If they just say exactly what liberals say about conservatives in renders everything complete gibberish and. No one can understand or care about anything because there is no line there is no truth it is just a big rhetorical soup that we all are forced to eat every day that is full of lies and garbage. That's all it is. he can say. Oh this is inhumane. This is wrong. This is evil when we were saying that. Three years ago about trump When democrats say trump in the republican party authoritarian now they say it about liberals that thorough thorin for wanting to have transpeople allowed to share the same rights that we have that to them as a threat if they just use the words that we use than they are rendered meaningless yet. There's also this element of like you know. Just denial that group denial that they all have to participate in and to come out just sort of like unequivocally and use these. Words helps completely forget like what was going on when trump was in power to Because that's like oh my yeah. That's it just sort of this thing. Where i think the reason. It's not that he thinks he's being smart. It's just a group of people you know like when you're in like out of college you're still drinking a lot and you're trying to figure out like do i drink a lot and like what we drink a lot still but then there's like nah i man. We're young man. we're young man. We just party this like sort of the same sort of like let's not think too much about it and then stephen won't be like nah. We're good baby. We're partying man like you main line that allows everybody else to be like right right. Yeah it wasn't that bad. This was bad it just sort of it helps by just putting all the focus there it just you know. The last thing they want is self awareness. It seems more than anything. They're incapable of it. it's hard to know which part stephen miller on. But yes. He knows what he's doing in care because he's a fucking goon. I mean yeah but like since highschool. His thing has been inhumane immigration policy. That was his. He would stand up at assemblies. Say like racist shit against the like. The janitors need to speak english or something. Exactly like that's been him. That's his whole brand. So i gotta feel like he's doing this like with a wink to his nazi fans lake. No i can say that to type thing like just yes troubling. It's just trolling. That's what i feel like. I know you are. But what am i all. The republican party is now is what you think we are. You actually are so you're wrong and we're right like that's it. It's pathetic it's empty. And it is the most dangerous part of their entire strategy. Yeah 'cause it's a lot of energy in a direction without much like purpose. Yup that's there but air moving the country to change. Yeah they don't want to get better. They don't want to pass legislation. They don't want to govern what they want to do is obstruct and demean and demoralize their enemies. Do you think. I mean there's no. There's no real long-term plan. Do you think like in conservatives head it's like yeah man like fuck that and they'll be so pissed off and triggered that they can't get anything done that they'll leave america and then it'll be all ours like what if they gave birth name aren't leaving so that's where i'm like. I mean if you really want something like just pause for a second and think about it but there is a set of the far right that wants a civil war right. Bret that is we know that for a fact now they wanna they wanna take up arms against the federal government. Yeah and then. There are the rank and file conservatives. Who just don't like the idea of race mingling. Yeah just kind of like casually racist. Like i don't really trust black people haven. I sat down at a waffle house somewhere. They might be like so you to feltus learning you or -cially. Panama haiti often them boys miseducated. And you'd be right. yes there. And then there's the people that just want low taxes and then there is the the top echelon of the republican party that simply wants to continue being in power and they want to continue propagating the policies that allow them to remain in power and that allowed them to make as much money as possible. But there's no ideological coherence or consistency. There with those people with that you know the the bureaucratic class political class The industrial class of the republican party rent. Well let's talk about donald grumpy tax returns. We got him. Baby gotta baby merely cages. He's done millions now. he got him. Gee whiz mom. They got us tax returns. I mean you know. The supreme court and many other courts had not been feeling that the trump teams legal defense which is essentially like. He's president. He can what are you doing. Don't even moons improves. And now that the supreme court was like no. We're not going to block anything like sivan's his investigation and his subpoenas are valid. So now he's he's he has has his hands on these documents and this is what he has vans got. Trump's tax returns extending from january. Two thousand eleven to two th august two thousand nineteen. But there's more jasa obtained access to reams of paper surrounding the tax returns preparation financial statements from the trump organization engagement agreements and other communications around the documents. Preparation jackson yesterday. This isn't me. He gets his fucking wig torn off in public and we all get to pee on it. We think sometimes like we've got y'all justice. Time is merely the beginnings of a very high profile financial fraud case. And this cynical part of me doing a little back of the napkin masses based on his Orange bang adjacent complexion. He may get off. But also you know. Unlike collusion or insurrection. Sadly insurrection was so right there in front of you this may be a pretty straightforward case in that it's clear he pulling all kinds of fucking tricks on his taxes. That make wesley snipes. Looked like some certified tax account Yeah one thing that. I was quoting this defense attorney. Who is like this. Could be just another mahler investigation where And the media is doing a lot of the same shit that they did with muller investigation where they oversample prosecutors like so it makes it seem like the cases open and shut one difference. I think is that there. There is obviously a motivation among like the majority of people to make something. Stick this motherfucker. It's like you could compare it to the capone tax evasion case. Someone's just been getting away with crimes in public just out of sheer corruption and the law is going to find a way to nails asked the wall one way or another imagine like capone. Trump is like the tom hardy movie right syphilis. That would not gosh. The one difference between this case and the previous to the russia thing and the insurrection is those two trials took place in the senate right. The united states senate which is packed with people who have a political reason to acquit. The man this is not that different this is like actual crime. Yes is not a political Theater trial is not. You know a bunch of grandstanding. Senators going up to a podium and making a bunch of Rhetorical points that amount to nothing just to obstruct justice or people voting. Strictly party lines. This is this is a criminal. Trial could happen. That could take place. So i hope that this is actually going to stick to this fucking like you never know. This isn't his only legal liability. I mean they're sexual assault cases that he's still very likely to have to testify or at least give some kind of statement that he was trying to duck while he was president. So i mean there's a lot and we talked about it. When he was going out of office there are many things But we'll see this i to be the one that has the most momentum And the other documents that he has that sivan's has seemed to have like some information. On the deliberations like how trump's properties like how they valued them. And you know to juice the numbers a bit to take a loss or whatever they gotta do and the other thing is the the documents are going to help now. Potential witnesses be called because they said they needed to see the documents to be able to be like okay now now now we know what we want to. I like ask these people but before they just had ideas without the proper paper trail read. Whatever we'll send them in like we know of crimes they've committed like ivanka. Trump is on record as like lying. About how how. Many of those Apartments were filled. She was like yeah. We're like eighty percent trump. You'd better get some of these and it was like ten apartments sold through and it was like all the trump family members or something. It's like there's no doubt that there's shady shit going on it's just the other issue is that In most cases white collar crime is wildly under prosecute But it like. I was saying Hopefully this is a case. Where the motivation is there to Hold white collar. Criminal have been crushed under the weight of the law books. This isn't really adding anything new but just I don't know to reiterate that they tried to overthrow the government knowingly. And you know anything. They're saying otherwise is a cynical cover story that they know is a cynical cover story Marjorie taylor green. You know she was out there. Claiming it was on january six And the day after was claiming it was antifa posing trump supporters There was also that video of that dude was like in his hotel room. Basically being like we were all there was not antifa was not blm. It was trump supporters. That did that yesterday. I'm the first to admit it being one myself and he was like live streaming He was right there when the woman was shot and killed. I walked amongst all those people. He added Basically saying like give us credit for the awesome thing. We just did Well now we're learning that That very person. That dude is homeys with green like they are super size. They go to events together. Green repeatedly calls a guero amazing and a friend and on social media. He called green one of my closest friends before she became like before she was elected office. Like they go way back there titan. Yeah she's having a week. You know what i mean. Yeah because this is on top of all the the fucking transphobic homophobic should. She was saying in the house because like gop is like okay. Let's have her spearheaded the fucking opposition to expanding civil rights act to include the lgbtq community in terms of banning discrimination based on sex or gender identity. It seems simple again. What is the problem here. I don't know who this hurts. But this is what this fucking scumbag decided to say quote. God created us male and female in his image. He created us so on the house floor. The equality act weird. Vote on this week. Destroys god's creation it also completely annihilates women's rights and religious freedoms. It can be handed completely different to stop discrimination without destroying women's rights little girls rights in sports and religious freedom violating everything. We hold dear in god's creation this is again they're using terms that liberals could us about freedom and women's rights this rhetorical poison injecting poison into the discourse so that it renders everything else meaningless. Like you can't argue with this person. Yes insane but she's becoming a media superstar because there is no trump anymore so without trump to be the figurehead for everything. That sucks in the world we have to get marjorie tailored green to come out here and say crazy shit. Every few days and then go back into her hobbit hole until we need her to spice up cable news again. I think the best example of what you're talking about She put a sign on her office. Store that said there are two genders male and female. Trust the science. So she's taking the idea of trusting the science and claiming that that claiming that it's like what y'all don't so just shut up and this is the face of you know representative marine newman. Who responded and spoke about her daughter and how her daughter would be discriminated and potentially excluded from getting benefits or any kind of. She's trans and then so then. So that it was a back and forth because that poster about the two genders. It was like two moves before that. After marie newman spoke about her daughter That's my shit face. Fascist had to come back with quote as mothers we all love and support our children but your biological son does not belong in my daughter's bathrooms and locker rooms and sports teams this and then. So newman hung trans flagged to be like and her. Her office is across the hall from. Mtv's so that's why she put this other shit up but there's home it's so many fucked. There's so many lame myths in like in what she's talking about like this idea that ain't allowing trans athlete to participate. Hurts this gendered women. That's the case. Most this gender women are saying. I don't i've never i've i'm not in a issue or i'm or i don't have an issue. I think a trans women are like creating a problem for me as a competitor. This idea to like if you're going to get on this whole idea of analyzing who is participating that her idea that allowing trans women to participate hurts all women. No this policing hurts all women because now you're now you're assigning these things like mask like to to manly or masculine or too good. To now you know cast aspersions on an athlete and then start policing their gender based on what you know what i mean like. There's it's inviting all this night. Bullshit and then on top of all there are so many myths especially as for now. It seems like sports is the current battleground for our society to have a reckoning with this like binary gender construct that we have. And this is where it's all like sort of coming to the forefront when really you know like there's a lot of things like a lot of the things that Critics of wednesday critics fucking transphobic goons satit like old drone. There's a lot of studies show. There isn't a lot of causal connection between performance into saas thrown like. There's a lot of loose arguments about it but nothing that's unequivocal so this this like this whole fucking campaign that they're all on just i don't know like it's just riddled with contradictions and lack of any kind of know critical. Thought about what any of this is. There doesn't even need to be an intellectual arguments right in my opinion. Yeah no i mean. Let's just as i'm not complaining about what you're saying i dislike. The discourse is is directed in the wrong place. The discourse says let's have an intellectual conversation about whether or not Trans women deserve to play women's sports or should we even have sports that are separated by the like. Don't worry about that. The point of this conversation is do trans. People deserve human rights. And the answer is yes. If you have empathy if you care about other people if you believe in freedom inequality answer is yes. There is nothing else to say. There is no intellectual conversation that is to be had it is. It is a purely emotional conversation right. It is a conversation about people. And whether or not you care about other people. I mean and just like the idea that like a trans athlete is going to be like some like the idea is some stealthy person who's not a trans person but is trying to game the system because men are better than women or some shit. It's always like this weird idea. You hear these people fucking talk about it and it's such bullshit their virtually neck damn movie wanna man xactly see if bullshit and that idea of. Oh a guy who can't play sports going to pretend to be a lady and he's going to be better at sports like that's so that's so homophobic and sexist and disgusting other thing. Tell them hey. If a high performing athlete can who's day to day life is filled with discrimination. Vitriolic fucking hate filled messages a constant uncertainty about how the country views you as even human that you see that on top of all that. That's an edge over. Maybe assist gendered athlete. Who doesn't have those considerations or those kinds of obstacles to overcome societally like there's this so that's why it's your point dave. It's not about getting hung up on. It was the one hundred meter. Time would have no. No this is this. The bill isn't about who can play sports. The is much larger than that. It speaks to a fundamental a value that we need to have as people which is all people are people until proven robot breath. And that's it. It's a smart political strategy to you. Sports sports is a thing that conservatives get real fired up about You could trace it all back to capture nick. And how they use capper nick as a symbol of what they didn't like about The way we talk about raising the way we talk about policing in the way we talk about Discrimination racism and they use sports because sports is a thing that gets those people fired up. Gets me fired up. I love sports. We all love sports on this. Show all three of them. Yes and so. It's a passion That a lot of people share but guess what guys as much as. I love sports. It doesn't fucking matter compared to somebody else's rights. I don't get shit about sports. That much of the idea that it's just so it's fucked up because at the end of the day. It's almost like you're saying do colts society. Do we want to turn up the heat and be more suspicious of everyone to benefit everyone. That's not the five that doesn't help anybody you if that's the case. If that's the tone is who's who's got what that eventually that will become worse and worse and worse and it's not gonna just be limited to one topic that's because we're saying this is like the energy we wanna give to something like this when the energy should be like you know accepting that we're all people and people with us to come by our whatever but Being suspicious of everybody is not going to help anyone. I can guarantee you that it reflects an understanding of trans rights and the humanity of trans based on like eighties movies. In which a wears a wig to like glenn room locker room and literally jonah. That's eighty yeah you'll life. Yeah all right. Let's take a quick break and we'll be right back.

All these hits plus so much more get started for free at peacock tv dot com and start streaming today peacock tv.com and were back and speaking of our love of sports and also Something that we were talking about before we started recording trading cards so Are you guys up on the top shot movement. Oh yes oh yes am. I'm in a you haven't heard of top shot mile- miles get ready. No i eight group chat all about basketball and top shot is number one. I yeah me too Yes so top. Shot is it's basically an nba trading card style market Where they create a limited number of nba gifts that have unique blockchain signatures. And because they have that unique signature and not because of anything to do with like the clip really they sell for a lebron james dunk gifts sold for a two hundred and eight thousand dollars The top shop market drove forty five million dollars in sales in one day. What i don't understand what you're saying know how is like a digital thing but there's only one of them that has Get that but you're saying people are paying six figures for a gif. Yes that's connect blockchain's us what to do with how you flex with like i've seen. I've watched the clip. You might well have the gif right to cream. Astor cycle video art piece to own the tapes to see the art. This is the first five matthew barney's come up on this show. She talks about the cream. Astor's cycle all the time. But you know. I grew up in art house so talking shit about art But yeah like the god see. This is why. I don't know you're slum. Yeah because i literally you saw before we record. I put on my old dusty binder of ninety s basketball cars. It's all about right so the value is to just say i own this unique gift for stop. Yes but it's not a unique gift. Because i looked at again right. It's a gift that's connected to the blockchain there's no value to it but neither is there. Value to any crypto currency other than like its value as a signifier of wealth like that or a signifier value. It's it's not. It's an attempt to create. The whole thing is an attempt to create sort of a physical materialist economy out of the digital world. It seems to me like well. It seems regressive it seems like kind of trying to go back to the like the people who are really passionate about trying to go back to the gold standard for a long time and was just fighting the direction things were headed like. I don't i don't know we're decent. What are we decentralizing. You know what i mean. Because that's the argument for these other. Currencies is like we're trying to decentralize our banking or whatever but the end writer really not being decentralized because they're trained like three fucking exchanges but like what i'm this is how old i am is that i'm such an old person. That is not tangible. So i'm like whoa. There is no value right right in a sporting. And i think i'm looking at in this. Sporting like trading context of like. What are you then. You're just trading files. But then i guess that also speaks to the fact that i'm i'm i'm at an age where i don't know that i can understand for me personally that i could see. The value in that philosophical value is not inherent value is applied to based on whether not lots of people share the same value on race. Object trading. cards is a great example. I have a box of unopened sky. Box trading card series one packs. There's no value to them but they're just pieces of paper with an image of an athlete. Right right you. Can you can rain out that. Worden print that exact picture out. The cars have always been bullshit. You see at least can hug my sneakers that i love and you can wear them look as a practical practical application in your and then but there are people who just collect or whatever and i still get that to like. You're going to get an eye people. Don't understand sneaker collecting and things like that. But i understand so now this is what they the high stakes world of six figure gifts and now i'm just terribly behind. Now it's a hype. Economy and hype drives everything and it's not just entertainment to this stuff is not just gifts though. No it's not just well it is mostly gifts the in the art world. There's also a like a princeton surgeons niane cat gif sold for five hundred nine hundred thousand dollars When it would because it was like attached to a very specific blockchain signature. And so it's just. Yeah it's just people agreeing that this thing is going to have value I i'm curious and maybe gang sleuths can look into how much money sargentini for having created that gift. Yeah right zero. We should just pull up to ever owns that gift and be like you'll run your shit. Yeah well that's also it's also worth asking the question of. How much money does lebron. James get for atop shot. Yeah is it this. I assume it's officially licensed to the national basketball players association. So there's probably some profit that these people make on the use of their likeness dislike fund of like. Okay you get this check for the fact that you put your face on this thing this thing in that thing right right but it's not it's not it's probably not significant money right and so it's just basically fancy ways to dress up your blockchain money kind of like yeah i got. I got my two hundred k. In bitcoin in lebron gold bar basically lebron gift gold bar essentially basically. And then you just have to hope that people still care about lebron james dunking over care. About how many honest how much energy these focus us to fucking do all this. Bitcoin mining is yeah. That's one point that this article and axios pointing out is that like especially the art world side of it which is all on this specific exchange The i can't remember or probably even pronounce the name of but it's like notorious for having one of the worst carbon footprints because like the reason that blockchain is is impossible to recreate. At least part of it is that you're having to go through all these computing like all this computing power and computing energy to like create one right. So like it's they they were comparing to like a what one of these things Is the equivalent of driving a thousand kilometers in a car and one of the artists was like yeah. That's cool Because the carbon equivalent of like that is the carbon equivalent of running my studio for a full year. She is lured. Yeah that's the it's so god. The two sides of that. It's like yeah but also the carbon emissions often making our gift. Money is trudeau roof but keep in mind. There is mars. We can always go to getting there. I'll tell you that. Not arjun shadow and not put mice now. People are Dollar denomination group got started working harder. If you want. Our kids started selling these sexy blockchain gifts. That's why you need to get into top shot so you can save up to get your children actually If you're willing to sell your children off into indentured servitude you can go. Yeah so just. Resell your child into indentured servitude life on mars. That's going to be some real shit. They're going to say like seventy years depends on how serious you are about getting your paper up man. That's all those numbers up man those rookie number. You really want to be like your magic johnson. The businessman i mean you have to make some real moves in and speaking of the other side of a story. This story that kind of hit yesterday morning all right. Tmz is reporting that two of lady gaga. Three dogs were kidnapped and her dog walker. During the course of this armed robbery was shot four times one over one of her dogs was as on. Jose said was just like not today. Satan in just sprinted away got away so that yeah no they There's a photograph of her bodyguard. Walking back found found the dog. Walking it back to the house By the way the so lady gaga is in rome working on movie right now so the fact that her bodyguard was photographed caring. The dog back suggests that that bodyguards in la looking after the dogs essentially and he managed to you had one job. My man. yeah but so. The one of the aspects of the story is lady gaga offering five hundred thousand dollars. No questions asked to whoever has her dogs which is bananas because whoever has her dogs shot her dog walker four times. I want to say something here about this. It's not funny. I'm going to say that i okay. It's sad when people get shot. But i am gonna probably make a couple of jokes. Okay so just bear with me please. Anyway he released an email address for you to send in tips on the whereabouts of the dogs. And i am just imagining all the dick pic. Somebody's gonna have to comb through uh before they get to even one real clue about the whereabouts who were dog. I mean yeah like. It's so weird that first of all like lady gaga would like democrat style negotiating. Hey money and no questions asked if you just bring me to work with us go even though you almost killed us. So appropriate let. She sang the national anthem for the biden administration. What about five hundred thousand dollars to find out who shot her fucking dog walker. Humidity mean that in the hospital. Their life is changed on my side but she's is going to be like okay. How much did they. How much do you need for me to get. Those fridge bulldogs fan. I mean 'cause. I can't live without bussey and scrub scrub. I'm not. I'm blaming her because she's just trying to get her dogs back right. The dogs are something back. And it's not gonna change anything. Necessarily like she could still be like find this motherfucker prosecute them but the fact that tmz is just like guys no questions asked. It's all like nobody's even or she's not even thinking about like the idea that she's devaluing the lie the life of her dog walker and also the way that this just feels like the american version of you know lake oligarchy dictatorships in other countries where people are kidnapped all the time like that. You have to constantly be thinking about the fact that people are going to kidnap you because massive wealth inequality inequality Like this is the american version of that. And the thing that everybody's reporting without even being like wait. What is that. she's just like okay. So that's done with now just giving my dogs backley's feels very american to me right now. It's like lake foul. People treat essential workers companies that treat essential workers. You know what i mean. This person could have died right. Shot four times and all. She wasn't her dogs back. It seems like i mean to be fair to lady gaga to stephanie. We don't know what she's doing for the dog walker right. Yeah no no is. All we know is the information that's out there. Sure we'll find out though. I hope. I hope that she's taking care of this person. Hey it's what it's just like. It's come on the police to arrest this person for shooting another street. Why you have like to jack's point right like the idea that bodyguards were adjacent and this person's still got shot. It's an inside job guy. That's what it is going crazy. We go shawshank. Redemption had the lava. Just seeing someone to throw it down read it is losing their like what you're on but then also it's like. How are you managing. Like i get it when you're so fucking pop in wealthy that you can't even do normal things but like you wouldn't you want to be like you'll my dogs are important. Doing fuck around. Ma bought this forest. You can walk them around. Because i'm guessing because she doesn't. She don't live in west hollywood. I'm guessing that's where the dog walker lives. So she trusts the dog walker enough to take the dogs. But then there's a security presence near the it just seems so convoluted. I'm trying to understand like if this is the most efficient way to ensure that the safety of your animals given the budgets. Stephanie has probably not. I mean this goes back to the top shot question. What how do we value things right. We value a block chain on a video or a gift. We also value french bulldogs. There are some of the. Most of france give dogs in the country probably in the world very hard to get very hard to take care of all that stuff. So someone thought i'm gonna go out and shoot motherfucker report times to take the dogs. I don't want the jewelry. I don't want the car. I don't want the clothes. I don't the grammys or the oscar i want to makes. That's so crazy to me that the dogs are valuable. Sorry but dogs are worth shooting to. Someone get clapped over dogs. They're just saw them because they were like all right. This this seems like a good plan. Even though the criminals in that are like nobody mind of a person. Who's doing what you don't want to You know at discharge a firearm in the commission of a crime radisson you don't you don't wanna put force multipliers on your sentencing. If something were to happen so like i didn't. It doesn't seem like do you need shoes somebody to strong arm snatch some dogs away. That's maybe what's going like. It seems there are so many levels that just seem like aggressive or that. The person knows that he's our lady gaga dogs. So they gotta come heavy and then they're gonna then demand another wilder ransom. They definitely knew that it was lady gaga stocks. This was yeah. This was planned out for sure. I just so confusing. I hate to be the conspiracy theory person in a time of conspiracy theories or so horribly dangerous. But it's very shit shit went left on that inside job You know the body. Garcetti said you're supposed to stick to the script out. Fuck you don. Yeah shooting somebody four times though maybe shooting somebody forty signs is the way that it makes. It look like it was more of a real crime. A dog walker is okay. Expect a new fully recover so might have been. I don't know we create. yeah. I'm like yeah exactly because part of me is like It's it's a crime sloppy. The security is sloppy. The shot four times where exactly dave is lower and then the last a hamstring with a with a twenty two hamstring bing bing bing dave it has been a pleasure as always having you seeing you Looking looking great my am. where can people find.

How's tricks how the situation up. You'll good way you may be. I am doing as well as im- as well as hoped i think. Yeah well as as as well as was mentioned as what has helped offense considered. I'm not sure about you. But i don't think ever felt more ugly in my entire life than now both inside and out. I feel like he added. I've ever feed in the same buffalo. Been so devoid of any sort of experiences in life that in the last eighteen months much everybody else. That's kind of enriched me. I'm devoid of enrich enriching life experiences. That can actually say oh. Yeah did X. y. and z. O. into this place. This person i saw that thing was at that place at that moment in time. I've been branded as moments. I feel rich. So i feel ugly in insight also feel obviously naturally ugly outside might legitimately might be. The face of urban illegitimate might be the worst of looked in terms of facially antos of body composition. Just all of it. It's just horrendous Gonna take a few months to get this funchal from me. No is similar. It kind of feels like you know when you're on a plane for long like especially if you're gonna in for any time any more free hours right you have that kind of weird f plane funk smell maybe from the recycled ed. You're kind of subjected to which is probably going to be held now with mosque. Remember back in the day. This is so weird. How is right. You remember ages ago when we used to go to the airport and you look at people from the far east wearing face masks and you think well i wonder what he or. She has used to be worried about them. It'll such way thing freaks to you. Now look what happened right the role on two years three years. Five years the wearing of a face mask in an airport is going to be very common. A machine most Ocd mums gotta make sure. The whole family has four face. Moscow mulligan on a plane is going to be a common thing especially because i predict it's going to be one tragic scaremongering story. The press is going to run with renting's reopen up again. I'm i assume there's gonna be some unlucky family going to contract. The virus on the plane is going to be the first recorded. Incidents first cases have come down it'll disolve hyperbole back on the by predict that's going to be like a standard thing. Going forward is going to be people that have legitimate leader. Sat remember when it was weird. When you go to point to take your shoes off thousand post nine eleven right they take your shoes off. And i think he was post that guy that tried to get on a plane and blow up the plane with with a shoe bomb. I british do. Try to go somewhere in america and changed the way we solve. What we in the apple. We accepted that full body scan thing. We accepted them. You know picking out random passengers who happened to be non white For an extra fara we know rectum and cavity search in the nondisclosure room around. The corner does a big dose with normal things also to predict now when the world reopens. Nomo thing will be just to kind of wear face. Because you're gonna plane so this is why it feels like there's a copy on the plane. It feels like the last winter. Like bali horowitz mexico. Ever i those players usually templars hours. And as you know you'll constantly getting fed the the airline food right africa's every four hours ever is they give you your century cramp craftsy especially. If you're saying coach. I was The gods are sitting in the window or the middle sealed. I'll seize with uncomfortable. You'd be fed this horrendous microwaveable mills. You can't really stretch your legs too tough And you just just feel yucky and unusually those kind of fly thing to do. Even though your baby gagging for a beer ever the i get your airbnb be get you just have a shower. Just get of ulaby few up somewhat and this is what i saw feels like so i feel so ugly i feel legitimately august of ever been like as our control the beetle control airframes puffy and just yeah just fills horrendous alumnae work to get back to a base level of a cuteness when things happen but you know i i'm sure we will be q. I've definitely go high hopes for stuff reopening again doubly the media scaremonger especially in the uk. The race of vaccinations have been going on. Pretty well People have been getting vaccinated record numbers. We're looking at going to hit the target in terms again. Fifty percent of the by maybe by the end of february so the numbers are looking really good If we continue. And of course we're now we're going to get. Everyone is at risk out of the way possibly by the end of june. Optimistically the stretch goal but we can kind of bring that that. That's like a conservative. Go but we can bring obviously a lot more forward. If we decided to just the government has decided hey save percentage placement vaccinate anyway. Let's just open up to everybody and just go and get. If you want to go get it. I'll be the great way to do things. We didn't get back to some sort of semblance of normal life but man again. I'm taking bob. Grunted taking the ability to go a problem of anymore. When the suffering happens again the way in stuff Because you know if ever. If every time i needed a fresh cleanse i anything as i've bought so many new pets of trainers enclosed your this lockdown of few bits and pieces of purchase and have not been bothered away any of the jury's time because just don't feel like getting dressed up looking cute just talking would do nothing but the momentum pub or bar opens. I'm gonna wear the outfit straight away. I just need to kind of feel some semblance of No malady which is going to be weird because it the game we ever had weekends while right. We haven't existed for a long time. There's going to be strange to get back into this mode. Bombshell wants places. Reopen you kind of slip back into the nomo scheduled programing when that sort of happens but yeah man if you feel ugly. Im at this moment Make sure he smashed one in the comments. Danville if you feel cute smash to. I'm sure there's some people that still feel cute regardless it's used a lot the girls are still fitting in. I've seen so many posting. I use them indoors. At how do it i. I don't think there's any entire my life. I'll be that bored enough to be other began. Maybe some goes. Enjoy doing hip. You see those girls putting on a full face of makeup. Look at amazing putting in a really cute outfit and doing like a for shooting home with their camera and do different poses. I caught him. I could never do. I just don't have the patience to put those clothes on. What look you for instagram likes. That's like the west the west l. e. academic kind of imagined for myself anyway personally for myself. I'm speaking behave. Everyone's different everyone's different so we got jampacked. Show today lows of stuff to get through lows those lows of stuff that i've kind of having spoken on district this week. I guess that i've kind of wanted to expound upon the podcast as per usual so again mixture. I object to show the a youtube. Make sure choice not like button. Hit subscribe dhabi more than one. The work walked. I'll be. I would really appreciate if he did a Of course you can follow me. Instagram twitter as well. That be more than gracious to.

St paging tacoma voice g. sti in hato subscribed patron get involved. Help out the kid. That will be greatly appreciated. So first bev news to get into. I'm not into the scaremonger at the moment. I'm really enjoying it. The press ought doing this annoying thing where constantly putting out these Click beatty headlines such as this one from sky news is nineteen restrictions could be in place until adults vaccinate experts warn. And it's just that could be you know lows of these words are being used right could be and they're not really doing anything adnan terms of Giving the country any sort of send bliss respite hope such look forward to for the future nothing whatsoever for anything that just kind of adamo confusing situation which i guess you can kind of understand. Because there's been no official word so far at the moment from donna. She has to win. Lockdown kanga eased. That quite coy which is fair enough considering the amount of blunders that they've made you know throughout this entire process right Leaking subset press not leaking suffered. Because it's funny now in this period where they're excellent everybody in trauma get numbers low. There's not really been any leaks of any. Any kind of substance right has been the leakier but no real substantial leaks have kind of come out since so. They obviously want to change their tactics and their approach. But that's okay because so far will be knows. Operates is going to give a speech on the twenty second with the first instance of actual dates has to win. We can expect to have life. Go back to normal with some key milestones in place and blah blah blah which give an understanding of where they saw sit but these headlines do nothing because the actual Self i just you know hypothetical claims put out there by people who are not really directly associated with some of the decision making processes after do covert in the uk so again. I'm just not fan of these headlines. Read the article says falling says Divisive extractions could loss until Could last until all adults have been vaccinated senior public health. England officials warned. Dr susan collins told sky news measures may have to come into place a beyond that until more is known about covid nineteen transmission before we can release rethinking by to laugh as it was speaking special per game covid crisis learned. Lessons should made. It was difficult to save rules. This summer could be tighter than they were during the same period between twenty. So that's a problem if you're if you're in a government you can't really listen to scientists right when you're making polio. Public health choices choices for public health or just in terms of the economy. You just listen to them because if it was up to those guys they would legit me. Tell you that you congo doors until everybody's vaccinate right is similar to win. You sprain your ankle or you fractured arm and go to doctors and they tell you you have to be in a cost phenol. for the prescribed. Twelve weeks eighteen weeks. Wherever much is but because you're an athlete and you earn money by using buddy you kind of skip or maybe cut that recovery process show and you get you get for it right. Obviously the doctor will advise it. They'd wanted to go for the entire thing. Then go rehab and then go for an extensive Maybe medication whatever may be sometimes in real life your day to day. You're going to have to some roulette decisions to allow you to get back. Semblance me knowing that maybe the scientific old scientific or medical Way of going about things is probably right but also detrimental to your long term prospects. That's about as they can to save your politicians the way of both sides and i'm more of asli ear and on the side of just getting people out and about because the people we've lost during this time Being down for this extended period of time even prior to this is very much. Do you really unique in that. We really had great leadership throughout covid for the entire time. It's been pretty hap hazard. We were basically led to believe we were basically told you about being told that we're trying to achieve her immunity by the time that was obviously proved to be ineffective. It was too late by that time. you know. The government go iguana faces and didn't want to be shown to be you turning notice flip-flopping so they delay decisions. They fumbled staff and he just took time to make decision to hold christmas. Holiday was absolute diabolical catastrophe. So we've not really been given any sort of reassurance that we just leave it to these guys they're gonna make the right decision so if anything the want to do is let them listen to scientists who are gonna tell them. Hey keep everybody indoors until everyone's vaccinate. Which is just not sensible continues. One of the things we've learned is that when people go and holiday paps they dropped they got a bit. Perhaps they might get close. Mingling groups what die holiday that could be one of the areas in wishes. Sprayed infection can occur. So i think it will be it will. We are going to have to have some measures in place until the hope of relationship vaccinated at least older adult population. I'm just not having. I'm sorry. i refuse men. When's at me anyway. Thinks when the world reopen is anyway it's going to be pretty impossible for the government to have any soul former restrictions and hold people back from going out. I guess maybe going to places businesses is going to be usually it's going to. They're going to be beholden to what the government say by in terms of going out and about in round the or move around the country. People just don't to have it they're not going to have the government telling them exactly what they cannot get especially in the ones. Whoever's you know guess a bit nicer and shit we don't really have sam. We don't really have great weather year round in the uk so when the summer comes johnny get on. There's nothing you can do so people going out and enjoying it so that is not really on the cards and it says even if i think we'll need to know more about gender show before we can really serving and get back to have. It was like last year. The obviously people like sunbathing on the beach wherever they cameron england. So it's going to be very difficult. Unserious to get people to listen to your source off and i just don't think is sensible given a numbers given what we know so far by transmission giving a winner how to avoid getting given all the ever medications i think the paper earlier about how beneficial asthma pumps all over the table in terms of tree in Know symptoms of covid so many things that we can do between now and you know summertime that can alleviate some of the pressure on a national health service and just get people to eat a level where they can move around as need be probably the best way to go about things and then i was thinking also just in general it would have been far better. I would have really really enjoyed if there was an option if we had more. I don't know if we had a you know. They have similar cicilline where they have like principality rules. Way like certain. Like i don't know maybe manchester birmingham or whatever they basically ruled by the mayor's kind of they made like solve like may yet debate like states of or citywide tradition. There were there. They percent yes to jurisdictions. Though i mean yeah so basically. The mayor of manchester could permit his city to be reopened to a certain level. I wish we had more of that just so we can have a different idea as to what's love approaches work because again as good as this mess lockdown has been shattered beneficial benefit economy overall especially places of been you know completely depleted of their resources and ability to earn any money during this time it would have been nice to maybe have ability to experiment with different areas across. The uk had different approaches. How to deal with kobe. Bryant pre great by game. Here we all. I still finished light in the tunnel. Really these of scaremongering tactics press ramping up. And i think by at least at least the beginning of april you start to see people moving around and doing things coughing. Maybe sooner talking about moving and going about doing stuff. We got this article here from the guardian assists to suitable collision. Uk broad says Shops is travel. Industry appears to be contradict. Detroit to transpose. Secondly suggestions that book can still be made so. This is a bit weird record fitness two articles here. I think there's there's not cohere here with graham shops offices saying it's too early to book. I never won by mahan. Kobetski says it's all up in yes to so my thinking from this is that most likeable ended up happening once boys announced a roadmap for covid Easing of lockdowns. From the twenty th february twenty-second. Think right that's when the press conference is taking place where he's meant to announced actual dates of when things can go about some semblance of mattie. Once that happens. I think a lot of people will will make their about where they're going to book base of for that i just received an email from ryanair Because of a fly is meant to take women to go through for may day on last year year. Praising a loss meant to be like our first boy trip to berlin just basically check out which is meant to be one of the best time to be around to see Obviously loads of street parties peninsula off. Marcus body blogger till the clubs. You know how to deal with and it obviously counselor to covid and ryan not offer the ability to have a refunded cash amount all to refund credits on your account. I just put the credit semi count and that was due to expire in april and algorithm email. Today saying oh. Hey great news extended your your credit balance until the end like december twenty twenty one and i know i was thinking is a great way to hit that from from ryanair. Because you know you don't get a laughing for quote unquote free like reminders. I'd have from these companies by think. It wasn't a could heart. I think they do that because number one day. Probably in for bookings people on a booking. Flights i'd imagine now The uncertainty in terms of cloven interesting restrictions in place already at the moment The travel corridors this stuff. So it's just too risky to book anything. Even if you are an influence i just it just requires to be what can get that done but i also think they probably are family aware that most likely will end up happening son country especially the ones that have been able to get hold of some stock. The vaccine. my her germany's going to maybe Easiest very soon maybe in the february two. So there's different places in europe that are going to reassess whether which is obviously given ryanair if they remind people to hegel these credits they're probably going to be able to book depar- we're to use use that credit against a book and wanna do 'cause that's why i'm gonna do right if i've got like fifty pounds or something of credits with ryanair out just used i against the fly. Even if hundred pound will just put the fifty panel top of it but still you've got the benefit of having that budget so there's a lot of stuff on the caused for stuff to open up so don't take this stuff stuffing with a pinch of salt. That's all save gardiner tickled a pinch of salt. There's a couple of paragraphs it so says he had to transport secretary has told people britain notable qualities domestically or abroad Provoked an immediate backlash in the uk's in batam travel industry is as a quote People shouldn't be booking holidays right now. Look to mexico intentionally shops. All bbc radio four's today program. It was too soon. However the travel industry on wednesday appeared to contradict shops saying that some packages cosmas could rely on refunds if the foreign off his ban on essential traveling holiday destinations. A spokesman for the association of travel agent said you can book us a monetary now with confidence by and package holiday for a appetizer member and many tribal companies are also offering additional flexibility to take into account and says in tigray by the pandemic. Okay that's pretty cool. Domestic intestinal travel companies have pinned their hopes on the recovery on a recovery of ten to something like nomo surveys over the summer as the vaccination program allows people vindicator emerged from national lockdowns abandoned. The lockdown rules in england. So i guess. Some countries are not permitting to arrive but most countries are. But you're not allowed to leave the uk so that way. I think they're quite right. There as long as people have been vaccinated. Numbers are down we roadmap. There is a possibility if people saw flying regularly in and around europe maybe from the end of february beginning of much shops. Todd bruce johnson barshop subset. Bush would lay on cer- between second. How do you care plans to little operations but said it was clear. The holidays would be included in those plans because of uncertainty of development of vaccinations precious health services. So true i still. I get an idea of where we're going for between second but i think most likely will happen is that will probably get more of a a rough estimate of like what certain sectors will reopen like restaurants bars. Salim's will there's amenities shops and shit and in denver probably progress upwards from there may be venues a big stadium Group sports stuff Optimistic news on the horizons. Just keep just. I guess trying keep your digestion of this news to minim- minimal minimal minimalise me as you can mimic what is Because a lot of the stuff is just onto. You know to scare you into submission. Which of course is to go back. Things we have. We have hiroshi. Fujiwara shared a preschool apple. Designed face masks. Which i've not seen to begin with rabbi four. Look pretty interesting. I think i heard someone mentioned in never before. This was actually on the works but this is a video. What video here from umbach for people imagine a person. That's kind of gone on books therapy. The last few years. I'm not really a fan of consonants. Subscribe channel recheck. For many more kind of annoys me. A merger show is just because of that whole case thing though like him carbon-fiber phone case debacle. Acted with that it. Just kind of running up the runway. Even if you look at the facts he wasn't completely wrong. If probably maybe blown out of proportion still the way he kinda conducts himself kinda midway and just generally kind of hey his. I'm not a fan of. He's kind of smarmy condescending. Also of like tone maybe should me. I don't know. I might any president of. Don't really watch on box very times. I'm going to click courtesy of hype. He says he is rosy for the godfather streetwear. One of my idols in the scene shows a look at the apple design facemask is he Took into instagram. for a highlight the minimal packaging. The desire of the reason face developed an engineered by industrial designers behind the iphone and ipad. So that's pretty cool that you know apple decided to make their own face much makes sense if you stop on the show floor the lousy you want them to have like an under armour moscow and all some of another ship on you want into to wear something that kind of goes in line with what you're kind of design sensibilities are fixing the uniform. is different sizes to go here small aluminum large smaller than medium. Souza's gonna be a large in excel blah blah result face mask and as a pre slick design similar to allowed the mosque people in asia. Wearing with this kind of flap on the inside so of a just a little bit And in some looks like drawstrings on the outside that hoop loop of your is classic apple packaging on their side. And it's is it washable shipping right but if you go more pitches here via macrumors. Apple design team has created and you of protective mask as being digitally to incorporate employees but he can't purchaser only annoying poverty. So if i've not seen anybody to purchase it the new apple face you on the screen is like comfortable and effective at keeping you and of a safe and damascus. The apple face muscles designed in house by the cupertino engineering and design department. The apple facemask features a free layer design that filters above incoming outgoing particle many cough mosque. And it can be washed and reuse up to five times. That's pretty cool. Moscow's has been designed as triangle shape to comedy than those with our glasses and route the section of the chin and adjustable strings on the okay. So just because of your knows perfectly in the triangle shape who've waits a fogging on your eyeballs and of course goes on the a chain which is great to you still have to make shave machine to get it ready snug on the it says here let's go to obey to reference the second mazda claim by it tends out the second muscles note samba apple apple overtures to be an okay cool so clemency cans disobedient muslims rita in place because it shows typeface. Have for that one macrumors oversee digital first of the mosques look at great that looks great packaging us but usually use pick from apple. You see here the inside of the musket self with little flaps that go. I guess one goes on top. One goes underneath the chin. The top one is that when there was a kind of little bit of a mentally fabric on the inside a publican. Bend of your notes bridge as you can see. It looks pretty decent. Adjustable straps side can pull pull tabs.

Note you to political social nature discussion regarding spread discussion for his located. Okay it doesn't matter. Beer looks pretty cool. I wonder if they're gonna be able to watch those saudis in store. I would mind buying once. Buffet looks really cool away by face masks for him but you know apple farm would-be apple fan buoying. So yeah. that's the apple face. Mosque designed by the apple design team. Well so we have him to move on. This is quite funny Do you guys remember that Illegal rave that took place in bristol. Every was losing their minds of unsocial again. I think i've kind of changed my tone somewhat regarding plague raves and stuff like that of that nature i think just considering how shitty some governments have dealt with cove in general and considering the fact that all these raves seemed to keep happening regardless of the consequences are at stake in terms of high fines. the frame of imprisonment people. Just keep for him anyway. Which leads me to believe that there's something intrinsic the something so of Biological that we need to solve gathering place in know around strangers is so powerful human. dna That just draws things regardless of what's going to happen So if that's the case then those people go because you know you. And i are going but these people are gonna go regardless if they're gonna go make it safe maybe at least i don't know but we got this. This is a personal illegal rave teen claims raves. Aren't antilock there and the anti-capitalism guy who is it looks like a person that you'd expect a little as rave and he speaks the same way to mrs teenager who has fined two hundred pound off the attending halloween revelers j. claimed raves on antilock dante anti-capitalism as you'd have to pursue destroys court on tuesday february ninth the eighteen year old.

They look at the typical personal. You'll find at one of these of illegal warehouse raves somewhere. Even when the world is reopen. There was little these semi december they'll kind of these so like pirate promoters public preference center using different app communicate with each other and ourselves. These warehouse raves in the middle of a factory. Somewhere that'd be pretty shit environment to go to but just a to hang on. I guess if you're a kid. I don't wanna be home to be. Lows of random just stood in kunar zeno and with balloons and sheer drinking books. Wine shicho is traced. I went to a couple by november. Vibrant this is kind of people you basically find into the shop. I absolutely yeah offense. Yeah raise onto down there.

He's got probably a ten two hundred quid. But hey that's probably a police who knows who knows who knows. These guys are mega. Really amazing God what can you do with these people. What can you do with these people. Oh an exclusive. News of yahoo exclusive exclusive news and a salkin the finesse queen herself. Right the lady who is at the center of my friend anna and buffing the article from what the new york times magazine from a couple years ago. Basically didn't expose this young lady. Who essentially a finished the entire community in new york to believe that she was the daughter of a very wealthy family from germany or whatever though should from and she basically finished to believe that was going to build this massive gallery come warehouse studious based thing got massive amounts of learn from different banks status swanky hotels or just lifted life.

Vm and pre show but anyway she went to prison for our tovia smith toil form of radiological refined out but she went into prison. She joined the time in prison. She became a cult figure. Wendy article came out in the book came afterwards. She basically left hold trail for the people basically affected by his schedule. Still it was a finesse to the maximum levels that people kind of saw themselves in. Because i think everyone knew somebody that in in their seen who was kind of an animal can in their own so away you know people who basically lied about their educational background maybe fogged. And maybe you know. Stretch the truth in terms of their educational and work experience over. There have been to proprietor to kind of get into the industry.

'cause read about her from people associated knitter but it was good to hear those kind of things from the horse's mouth so year and this will free free at last free at last. Well so we have. He is a move on. Oh yeah we got some news on the star wars mandalorian disney front unfortunate news here if you are gina carano unfortunate new so it appears as if according to variety magazine lucasfilm. Uta joke mandalorian. Star gina chronic following offensive social media post. So if you're familiar must people familiar should be familiar with the mandalorian. Hip breakout star of the disney. Plus platform an amazing. Tv sir. probably the best thing. Lucasfilm has done Since the since the preschools right against right since the prequels the people are normally environment within stars communities lows of fan channels on youtube basically ripped them things to pieces. And then when you finally do. Because i think three hundred funny when you watch watched when you watch some of the what they call it Coordinated but what some of these detracted channels on youtube. That basically ted style was a lucasfilm. Two pieces Regarding how they've treated style was a franchise you kind of think you know what they're gonna be over the top then you finally watch those the last jedi news. Our kind of movies have come out Since the originals. And you're like oh my god. The movies on legitimately unwatchable right they horrible delivered with stupid social justice motives themes and when they do try and crew voice. Don't keep enough screen time. The plus don't really make any sense. It just really completely completely terrible movies as as they pertain to star wars. Mandalorian comes out I'm joan february leading the charge. Just takes it back to its call. Takes a back toward the. Is these quick thirty minute. Western spy tv series. Probably serious season one point balances to but just expertly done you. So how the fanfare win. New skywalker returns at the end. Rhinos pointer level should west already by now. But it's really been a hit pit star show out from the gate and of coast cameos from bill budge khurana in it just really really good characters overall that people are very vibrant and of course baby yoda and the mandalorian of course. But it's been lots of rain in the background gina. Chronic i think for mistaken I largest i popular. I'm assuming somebody from disney or lucasfilm kind of told her of suggested that she kinda put a pronoun twitter profile you know what she basically wants to be referred to regarded as it as pertained her gender or assumed gender wherever may be and she refused to do so. Because she doesn't necessarily vibe with that sort of thing. I think ever since then there's been a target on her back and wants to series of kind of developed and she's tied to get more comfortable with social media sites maybe a spouse more conservative quote unquote views might be more right leaning views. It was always going to be of. It was kind of a ticking time. Us who when she was going to get fired from lucasville. If and that's maybe the main issue at point here. Obviously if it was me i would. I'm really a firm believer in operating award as as as you wish it to be. So if you want to be part of this amazing franchise word of her ganor own spin of show off the back of the mandalorian. I would have just played nice. Really espouse any my political views on social media special the platform at twitter and just kept it moving clinton my coins and then once it's over then gonna tear and the payroll of the right wing platforms. They want to do every need to do. I think at the moment considering how the world is and how you know. Most of the media treat people who have more conservative right-leaning views or centrist views quote unquote is a boever minefield. Tone to deal with by fuel on social media. Saying you know kinds of nonsense says you know regarding the left side of things airframes completely k. The moment you say something of his spicer as things could be bad so i do blame gina. Chroma for nope kind of understanding her audience and understanding who she's being employed by an deciding to basic ruin ruina career for what really doesn't make any sense on the other side. I also believe that you should be another state where you want to say if if if the people who espouse more left leaning politics such as you know the guy actually pays them under lauren he said some very inflammatory things mostly based upon you know the kind of liberal side of political thinking. If he's allowed to say that she should say the same thing on her side of things is even everybody can say what they want or knows anything at all if anything. I probably lean more towards just Restricting i guess most hollywood actors from saying anything in public concerning politics in general where voting for go to vote. Do this whatever. I just think. It's cringes not needed is a real people in real lives or listen anyway I think that's what should step aside and let the actual experts speak. But if they are going to be able to speak voice should be allowed to say what they want within reason if they don't if you have this one for you root for the ever because that's just not fair better discontinued it says here from lucasfilm. Uta mandala sergey credit falling offensive. Social media post is a junior is not currently employed by lucasfilm. The company said in a statement on wednesday after controversy of demand. Lauren star social media post. Uta has dropped her as a client. Right has confirmed which is effectively canceling from industry. We always happens whenever somebody gets canceled. You get dropped by wherever show you on and drop by agency which is a way of them kind of showing you to hate your excommunicated industry which again is not productive is not anywhere if that person knowing or learning what they should and shouldn't be doing probably not the best thing for somebody's mental health even though some people would argue june. Acquire probably landon fee because you know. She comes from a fairly. Wealthy family is really important. It's not relevant in situation but still If anyone thinks counterculture does exist this is getting counseled. She might still have a crash you have to go in the right wing content platforms to express her views or senators from wherever or a-political platforms regardless of what they are She'll be okay now regard any immediate but this is what counterculture looks like. She's not gonna be able to book another big time show again unless netflix are also unless disney plus every kind of realize at the same way they relied nick cannon after he espoused he's anti semite empty semitic views quote unquote So if you don't think as a coach exist is the prime example. They actually does. And it's always dangerous because he had to pick and choose who they wanted to get rid of. It continues gina. Carney privately film and there are no plans for her to be in the future. I look respect. Person said in a statement nevertheless social media posted denigrating people based on their culture. Religious identities are in stable. Which of course we need to come back to highlight. Because she didn't actually say near this continues. As carla shed several offensive tobacco posted on instagram stories on tuesday night including one that like in contemporary political differences treatment of jews. In in of course germany jews were beaten streets by not yet see soldiers but by the neighbors even by the children cover incident because history is edited. Musi put the date realize To get to that point where yet see soldiers could easily round up the jews. The government for i had to make their neighborhoods. I'm sorry to neighbors. Hate them simply for being juice. Has that ninety different from hating. Someone views the postal vision aid on the different instagram. con council. she riche edison stories. Now don't get me wrong. do i want one. On my co stars of a leading disney franchise to say this'll stuff on social media platform. No i don't personally wanted. Do i personally care if somebody watch on. Tv am has political beliefs. That don't really align with myself. No not really. I don't really give a shit. But the problem i have with this. Is that if if people would more left needing views can go on this social media account and accused trump of being a racist and you know can can cry illegal. Got murdered the capital booting. Even though they weren't dead elvis bat. Shit crazy shit. If that's okay. Then people on the other side of the aisle should be able to say to because if anybody under any kind of illusion down there's many conservatives that kind of work in hollywood day out of this hour their minds right. there's a lot of people who definitely Would lean more right leaning but don't want to say in public because they know is an instant instant x. Mark on your cre- engine. Carlos basically proved it. She's a lovable character on the mandalorian extremely popular Of course given her uc fame prior to this regardless. And just much more your personality and people seem to like think she's attractive body blah blah blah. She's a very public editor for. So if they think if they're willing and able to get rid of her. This basically tells you why are more actors and actresses don't come out and say hey. I'm a supporter of this person. I was the pool of that party. They to say because they know is going to be a complete density career like again. Like i said i'd much prefer my my actors and actresses and people that are on tv to say anything political at one episode social media platforms but again it's that social media platforms. If they want to say let them say it. Of course the consequences are there. But you kind of for one more for the one says here in other posts corona shadow to pass away multiple cloth massive the caption miwon california both puzzle from instagram by mid wednesday of oppose included. A one which to karner road jeff f. seen didn't kill himself remained to hashtag fire. Gina crime I don't know why. Jeff jeff kim's of is not a wiser controversial point of view to make anybody has actually read. Anything concerning his time in prison will know that there are way too. Many are way too many dodgy pieces of detail that lay that kind of allow themselves to be open for people to speculate at venus. Anything wrong to say The fact that he was in his cell with a son in may the federal security guard purposely. There's no rule closed-circuit for age of the actual incident prior leading up to it. It's too fishy controversial. Says he defied gina hashtag begins again l. wednesday it was supposed to oppose many users Home and corporate parents at disney person. Of course the the tattletale community. Komo force krona's no stranger to controversy social media november. She was criticized for people who specify pronouns where ship data tobia will be bought book which she later removed and december because that's coming in december lucasfilm announced rangers. Your public eric. Spinoff fundamentally that seemed to suggest a par chieter. Kara dune former rebel trooper. Who had become a martial for new republican show. Lucasfilm's yeah turn down the cost and you show however so she officially gun and this is not good here from the daily beast deciding her executive indiscretions if we scroll down here You've got the purse of what she said and again I would personally not prefer my actors actresses to say if you can put it on their platforms by just think we're in a really dodgy place if we allow one side of the hour to say supper. Can you have a side note saying you think of vegas of any real purpose and again. Considering how you know how well and not well-received somebody of star will strategies is By the actual fan base. I think this is probably going to do. More damage embed more good than bad officer motivating good forestalls of rof in every underestimated the kind of love and people seem to have regina krona and how cartoon character in the mandalorian and we definitely haven't heard the loss of this going forward but again in when you're in public what you're into public over you're working in hollywood you just have to accept the fact that you're going to be on the some Scrutiny scrutiny scrutiny. Every scrooge scrutiny scrutiny for your personal social media and at the move accordingly maybe part this is just not really given a shit which is quiet mobile too but you know she did fumble the bag somewhat consideration spin off You know in the works especially with our character which is essentially money guaranteed for years and maybe decades to come by interesting to see what happens going forward with this anyway. This move on was we have here We have this post here from the new york. Post cut to see his new oppose youtuber. David dot bricks new nine point. Five million dollar mansion has hawaii punch fountain. And what i i love is post. I was like nine point. Five million mentioned the measure. That's pretty cheap for californian home and has no in hawaii last night so this is newell post. It says here Youtube david because a brand new nine point. Five million house in los angeles a sweetheart. A perk hawaiian punch in He says it is my favorite part. Houses that water fountain like you'd guess school instead of water. Check out the twenty four. You're says in the video. The slept bread fruit punch flowing fountain fruit punch freak ridiculous the gen z pranks said. The idea came from the twenty twenty twenty twenty two adam sandler movie mister. Deeds about a man who inherits lavish for tuning could measure with a high of free percents. And apparently the movie left an impression. So this is herman again. I have to say right. This might legitimately legitimately be the nicest home of seen from youtube influence or anyone on social media in general. I think this is really really beautiful. So nine point five million again. I still think is pretty decent in terms of size considering places. I've seen people by an la. The la retail prices seems to be ridiculous for the amount of square footage. You get by guest views kind of makeup free. Look at that garden nice pool alone out those last license loan chairs which i seem to love the lamb. They love a good lawn chair side. They can of you know of taken lighter and see the views. He looks flipping gorgeous You've got this amazing ceiling to roof whatever view out onto the import. They can view outside on their amazing cinema room to inside which looks flipping fantastic. Perfect place to of chill and relax Great lord dining room again with another tv liver kind of fireplace thing. I think he showed this on the video. This is a was a pressure. Cold wine cellar with fingerprint. Id to gain gray. Staircase like legitimately might be one of the nicest places i've seen you chip like might beautiful beautiful apartment. A beautiful beautiful her actually not common but look at. How gorgeous is this and again. I'm not really a big fan of is content. i think he's face kind of annoys me. May i go where things faces but highly smile. That have that kind of snubbed annoys me. The frantic nature of the blogs journal the flag scored his serve ridiculous. You know i just. I don't know. I'm just founded the concepts of but you can't denied the hustle yukon deny that what the hustle can do as well. Because you know to be able to buy nine point nine point. Five million dollar home is insane. Figures also say up his own Put closed or youtube show could views. Think coming up soon as well. I hate hosie which come the park with something amazing. So yeah big up to david. Dobrica absolutely smashed it. Man absolutely smashed it this move on from that one. Well else we have here. Did we got this regard. An article here from the verge is says salesforce declares that nine to five the nine to five work as dead and we'll let some employees work from home from now on Dissociate big up deal because salesforce employs love. People said day deciding That they've taken taken this decision. I'm to allow some of the most of their workforce to is definitely a step in the right direction and definitely kind of signals a change for maybe forever. I'm a big believer in either. There's going to be two reactions. Post covid evil. Things have changed forever in terms of you know people where people will decide to live how they interacted that city. Whether or not they go to work you know how to take the kids at school vacation but a blah or il just yet that things will change all it. Just go back to complete normal middle. I of lean towards the side of things of change for good. I think we've kind of not really seen it because we haven't been able to live our lives but once the world does south reopened will start in the law of the that we knew or people in general have moved away especially if you lived in a very popular like doing london usually law people with lower his quite a lot more me know emptier on your commute to work. You definitely know stat. You definitely see. A lot of the buildings were full of people in offices will be gone of course places that we work have suffered during the lockdown so definitely going to be a change Retell you know. High street blows. Brands have gone under june his time. So definitely be a chain but again. I'm not sure if he's going to be back to normal stray away all some level of change. But this is definitely decorative of a mind shift for some companies. Because i remember when i was working in a normal corporate world It was a big deal to be allowed to work from her was privileged. Was you know. I'm given to people who may be had met the deadlines or shown progress in day. Were whenever may be wasn't something that was kind of a given. That's kind of expedition to get it. Same you'll do holiday and something that people kind of really cherish right which you know you should do. If you're being to have mine became wrong but then as the years progressed. And you know more compensates realize that you kind of limit your talent pool you can attract from what i can choose from if you just delay people only kind of come to the office if you opened up again of course as a risk. Because you don't know who you're gonna get in terms of control in this sort of a senior at work but at this level especially at this level at certain levels of work It's a given that. You're gonna get good level candidates dr tests and trials. You can kind of put into place to ensure that they know and they're competent. What they do and from then on there really shouldn't be that much difference between endlessly. After all this time we believe look down. There's been a lot of time to gather lows of glows of insights into what works. What doesn't work when it comes to working from home of learnings that can be implemented on the largest scale as you grow your company over the next few months and years going forward. Busy article here from diversion of salesforce declares nine to five workday and less employees working from home now says forming am cloud computing company. Salesforce is joining other silicon valley. Get things so a is doing giants in announcing a substantial shift in how allows its employees to work in a blog post published on tuesday. The company says and i would what is dead and l. allowing players to choose one of free kites that tape. How often if every turns at your face salesforce also give employees more freedom to choose what the daily schedules look like. The company joins the tech foams such as facebook and microsoft have announced a permanent work from home policies in response to the pandemic says the following as we entered the new year we must continue to go forward of agility and begin his mind and that includes how he caught. Avail culture and immersive workforce. So i knew mesic. Workplace is no longer limited to a desk in our towers. And if i were dead and the employee experience is about more than the ping pong tables and snacks. Thank god that was remember. That was a big deal right. That was such a big deal for some stuff. She go there and they'll tell you rather drinks on fridays. This'll stuff which obviously is going to be a boever loss. Having for company culture of rule there is some benefit as corny and cringes. They are those of like friday drinks and friday kind of hands hand. Downs time ten. Ten standups stand up. Stand down standups. Signed up surfing the co standards debriefs wherever compensated things that you do in startups depre- important they provide in terms of Boosted morale you know encouraging relationships close platform or cross department collaboration. Which are overly you know. I'm overrated at risk in regard. The kind of all you have an open office space. That means you didn't collaborate with people who are marketing. No you don't moxie. Don't wanna talk to you. They got work to do. You're busy doing your work to. It's annoying talk to people as working on their desk meeting in your plans. But don't crumble it table and speak rubbish to me But yeah the there's gonna be some losses obviously with that country culture stuff by overrule a net. Positive it continues. It says in are always on always committed world no longer makes sense to expect employees to work and eight hour shift to do their jobs successfully whether you have a global team to manage the times on a project based role is based here or slowly depending on the season or simply have the balance perspective and professional obligation today workers festival to be successful. Now we'll just show what they'd be by this. Do they mean they're going to have like open days where you can just work if you were in two hours. You're basically done. I'm not really a fan of that. I kind of like working like the times. I need to work nine to five ninety six ninety eight wherever and if you need to a lonely work. I don't like this idea that you know some do free some other finesse. Going to be a good thing for overall company Coach in in a sentiment of a people. When you learn he'll she need news online for a couple of hours. That's perfect at a great way to go about things but who knows. Maybe i'm missing. Something it says high sites Picking up young kids from school or caring for sick. I remembers as reasons why employees should not be expected to report a work. Shift eight hour shifts every day. You also points a place to how the removal of the unofficial climate will allow wants to expand this recruitment of new employees beyond expensive cities like san francisco. New york which is amazing race allows people from that rural communities places. Or maybe you just don't wanna move from because that's a thing to people have definitely seen that you know what china's and all that glitters isn't shiny so living in la is isn't the best especially if you're running if you're on a democratic state where they just miss i have. Somebody who had mosque is punishable by death. So maybe living in the place so that'd be more free you can move around a bit more. You can do needs to be done you can raise a family. Buy a home and instant worked for a company. That's paying your pre decent wage. Looks see just doing remotely is pretty decent. It continues in the books book. Haida defines the free different categories of work as flex fully remote and office space. Flex would mean coming into the office. One to two free days per week. Which i'll probably like typically and team collaboration cosmic meeting of the presentation a salesforce expects most of its in place forces category. Which i think is pretty decent. I think if you got the ability to go into the office two free days per week that will be beneficial like highly homemade. Say wanna free. As i pointed out 'cause then you could just kind of You could provide your khalid schedule as was to win. You'll be in 'cause that's quite nice if somebody else's if you want to have those face to face meetings and you tell you. Hey i'm always in for monday wednesdays and fridays You know how people to kind of be able to tie. Inspector to meetings of universal gustafson was like me collaborate people. Because that's gonna be loud. That's the only thing i'm skeptical of. I think the time that people spend indoors that even decided oh the fever kind of four love where they live and they don't mind wickham or they realize way they would where they don't wanna work so they might be that idea when things reopen might be like you know what i actually don't mind going to give me a break from being indoors all day so that might be another thing to keep in mind. continues a full is. It looks like this. Sounds like sorry. Never come into your face. Expect perhaps for very rare occasions work-rate events office based employees will be the smallest population of workforce Hyder says and concentrating plays. His rose required them to be nervous forty. Five days per week. I'm praise are the architects of the strategy. Fx ability will be the key going forward pied arise responsibility has employees as employees is to empower our people to get the job done during the schedules at work best for them and at teams and provide flexible options to help make them even more productive. So yeah it sells can do it. Your shallow starve can do to give your employees to break. Let them work from home. Go from there. Well do for him. but this is all yeah took it about towel tales. An over the weekend over the last weekend over last weekend last week Those boever social media cafo concern concerning taylor wrens and the clubhouse and especially and pacific mark andreessen from adjacent horowitz She seems to have a bit of a an abundant for these people. in general. If you know familiar taylor lawrence whose pitched here on the left is a technology social media pacific literally your time. She kind of covered the love. Tiktok people a lotta stuff regarding the content houses and you know social media platforms in general and then of course my country. You know the name speak for themselves mentally salaries and are heavily involved in clubhouse. And i guess since last year clubhouses especially been used mo- pacific mostly by vc's and people working dino's tech and startups. And i guess if you taylor ends on your right. Nobody's people when you're writing hit pieces of on pieces by them. You obviously want to get into the pie too. Because mark countries and as a very strict Blocking policy when it comes to journalists or any sort of the taxes to of limit the amount of bad implicit. He's receiving on twitter is very quick to kind of block. Somebody when they say something like said joke or ingest in sarcasm He ended up obviously blocking teheran's during this process to which then allow her to some of the classrooms because of that she described a foul and then basically made it her mission to tame down any a occasion. She picked probably the worst example to do so. I guess they were speaking in a clubhouse room regarding the whole wall street suburb already regarding the stuff we game stop and how these day traders and communicate with each other on the read it at every fair to travel retards or the way how they act is retarded and autism. Talk which if you're familiar with washy. She us up to go into suburb. If like ten minutes and you'll get the lingo and understand why these things basically said someone said in a chat room wasn't even the mall countries and those i can never lady and and then Ten iran's decided to take and go on twitter essentially accused him of using d. Allwood which you can see here. On the screen at p. Mocked marco which is muck andriessen just opening using the also club tonight in the one of a peasant of room called him on it or saying anything and of course he didn't say she crumbly tweet because it was proven initials incorrect. And she kinda begrudgingly. Put a tail between the legs and decided to a semi poison. But not really. And it's a shame really like i said this a shame. I think as much as as annoying as taylor is. She is pretty good in terms of covering all of that. Tiktok social media content house stuff that exists out there. She probably isn't the best when it comes to objectively profiling. Some of these visas intech bros. probably Don't share her political viewpoints or ideology. We should be mad if you're journalist but the issue is more so is that she purposely went out to look for inc incriminating information or evidence that will tear down someone like a monkeys and jason and maybe lead to some really big sweeping changes on clubhouse platform. That she kind of isn't a fan of right or most of the people that are more popular initiative fan of it and in glengarry. Would this re this amazing skiving piece on it at quarter journalistic talent. Censorship industry suffers. Several world is of blows is didn't deal time. Said iran's falsely accused the tech investor of using a slur at the spending much trying to infiltrate and monitor in you app that allows free this conversation. If you're familiar. Graham greene was work. You know that he doesn't pull no punches in the absolutely evisceration this profile as very well warranted. We're going to put up here. Where starts says he got the What we go here where. Yeah this is here. I'm the the profound pathology driving order. This where full display on saturday night as a result of the reckless and selfish and humiliating make campaign by one time star tech report falsely very publicly accused silicon valley entrepreneur investor mall countries and of having used a slur word retarded during a discussion about the radio slash game so uprising. Lorenzo light andriessen. Never use the word and robert apologize are attracted to justify mistake by claiming it was a male voice astounded like his then locked her twitter account as she wrote in the person she in mind was the victim. An i guess was the most annoying part of it right. I think these people do exist. I think i've said it many times before. But i still remember when this happened. Right when nellie bowls this. I'm really her. One damaging profile of jordan isn't nps and the custodian of the paycheck for new york times Who is famous leader. Girlfriend of barry weiss and she basically was one of the people that led. This was kind of. I'm going to say in. My opinion should be responsible own people responsible for his breakdown sometime in the late. Two thousand nine hundred ninety s and this article was a one that basically spawns a phrase enforce monogamy which he basically use in the anthropological sense and she basically took enforce monogamy and staying obviously made a big deal and made it seem like he was advocating for women to be shackled to menu was fit to be their partners or some bushy but essentially what he was saying was that we should be living in a force in the society where monogamy and being in a kind of healthy relationship should be promoted in order to have balanced and stable men in our society because the more balanced of the more dangerous. It is for anybody else. That isn't a man. Cool pretty simple point of view to have but she papacy so of sponge and made it into something that it wasn't peace out here mentioned. She did the same thing too. She read something saving the community. People read it. Were kind of pulling her up on the fact and basic even till the peterson said at a time. I think that would story. I would dave riven years ago Dave rubin sorry. She went on tour with them when she went to one. Their shows friendly shift kind of basically had a good report back to the office of the report. She completely ripped to pieces. Which was pre pre Unscrupulous and re discussing the in inca prior someone. You could the you know how much of a dude in general so. That isn't again that this is surprising. But it's just the fact that they go fishing for the stuff you wouldn't mind. Seeing people go off the people that actually deserve to get toned down or deserve deserve to have a little bit more scrutiny being placed upon what they do but instead they look for people who are kind of gaining momentum who obviously speaking for a certain group of people have maybe may be found a nisha. They've kind of been able to explain and they just get jealous. Officials called the limelight. And they want to do everyday cantu kind of dim the light in some way shape or form. I remember that. That kind of reminds me of this taylor answering so let's go back to the degree. Would article says the following. It says but the details of what happened here. Revealing the discussion at lawrence foresee described took place on a relatively new audio app could clubhouse and invitation only platform intended to or private free. Range grew compensation. He has become popular amongst the competitive executives and various media. Personalities are the by. Cnbc note last week as the app has grown people have become more diverse backgrounds. Ibm to join at. It's called a niche among the black uses at who have innovative use of using it. These private chess often if which try by journalists sometimes by By invitation overtones by the these jobs attempt to monitor discussions then summaries of the reporting consist reporting out of context statements designed to make the participants look bigoted in -servative of wisely A bad behavior. So i'm otherwise guilty by behavior in other words journalist this perfect content have fled cob houses a new frontier for their slimy work as voluntary home monitors and speech played. It's just a weird thing right. You'd always assume. Journalists would be doing investigative work right tearing down institutions of exposing corruption his stuff but instead they just go around essentially trying to find out what boss a what starts at found a shout their employees in the morning Which persons you know fucked so and so like this will really horrible gossip. Maggie kind of content is nothing. That's actually going to move the needle or changing any kind of meaningful way. For feeding her ignore ignoble duties laurenz announce onto a diary since bad which is bad word during the discussion revolution. She claimed she used a retarded where she opt- her tattooing tattling game by including this allegation but also the names and photos of those who were in the room at a time which again unscrupulous the continues here Numerous club participants in could in komo foster mmediately documented lawrence had lied the motives of the discussion. Nate jones said democracies never used. The word will actually happen. Was felicia horowitz. A different participant in discussion had explained the relatives themselves retard revolution. And that was only mentioned of that. Would rather the poison a retracting. Terrorism's did what she most people do in this case when they are found wanting instead of just apologizing a movie lawn and profusely a pleasure. And saying i'm sorry she said a phone ring. Thanks for clarifying that. It was felicia that said that word robert denmark as many room heard. I hope you can understand how some people that are hearing. Oh god this woman beside the fact that in your times reporter tried to destroy something reputation. What is wrong with episode. Everything and i think the last bit is really. Scathing was last pair. Pinkett year this right. But but now the prevailing ethos of the corporate journalism day they have insufficient talent or skill even less desire to take on real power sentas the military industrial complex of cia and the fbi that kind destined security state wall street. The compartment up police the corrupted in lyon corporate media alistair serve so settling on this penny ante trivial bullshit tattle tailing home monitoring speech policing orleans. Some all in the most anti intellectual adolescent provocative way is all they have is all they are and it's why they have fully earned contempt and a distrust wish to public holes them out right absolutely destroyed but again it's more than warranted matt is really ridiculous case. I'd much rather magennis's actually stick to reporting on things that actually matter instead of monitoring speech on clubhouse the last thing you want for club assist. Turn into another twitter. That's why people are on there. 'cause it's a little bit reckless a little bit loose. You can't get away with saying some more racy things people comedy. Please your speech for the most part on the nep. Sasha club asa. I'm sure they're going to implement some moderation tools later on down the line going to you know. Cut tell some things. But overall i again. I've never really used it too. Tough the sam. The champion of the episode of let people speak let people speak. That's why i say in general else. We have to say here. Don't talk about that. we don't talk about. We spoke underway. Fina might be in terms of where we are from now on. I think that might be diabetes. Leave it there for now. That's leave it there for now We've spoken about quite a few films already as usual. This is the accident in the show episode number four free to.

Thank you nephew subject. I i don't like how he treats his ex wife. Stephen shirley i'm thirty six years old and recently divorced. I met a guy. Eight months ago and he just got divorced too we bonded over our divorced dilemmas and he was open and honest. About its break-up. He told me that he was controlling and they had a rough marriage because she liked to fight him and throw stuff at him. He told me that he had to restrain her a lot but he never laid a finger on her. He told me that he even took a domestic violence class to try to fix his marriage. This made me afraid to continue talking to him but i told myself that he was so sweet and forthcoming with information. That i shouldn't penalize him for his past. I wanted to go into our relationship with an open mind. He's been nothing but a gentleman to me. I get regular foot rubs and massages flowers for no reason and he even does things around my house to help me out. He never raised his voice at me or seemed irritated at me but whenever his ex wife calls him about any little thing to do with their daughter he is a totally different person. He talks to her like she's a piece of trash and he usually hangs up on her. He has done it in my presence. Numerous times and i always give him time to cool down before talking to him. He's told me a few times that what he calls a. He's taught me a few times. What the calls were about. And it's never anything for him to be so angry with her the other day. I overheard him on the phone with his friend and he talked about his ex wife nonstop and said that his ex wife is lucky. She moved out of town. This made the hair on my on. The back of my neck stand up. Could he be a violent man that had to go to domestic abuse counseling on that had to go to domestic abuse counseling or does his ex wife bring out the worst in him. I need to know before i go. Any further with him okay I think we have a problem here. I do and you certainly no way more about this man than we do. Because you've been dating him eight months but based upon what you said. I think it's two things that are that are issues with him. His ex wife most definitely brings out the worst in him and he does have violent tendencies. I also think he still has feelings for her because he gets so upset whenever he talks to her. And you know he may be sweet and giving you foot massages and flowers and all of that to you but this guy talks to his wife crazy and violently and all of that. That's him to okay. So he's still that person You know. I think he does have feelings for her. Like i said because he gets so upset when he talks to her even when he talks to others about her. I don't think you've brought out violent. Tendencies and him yet. The red flags are everywhere. And that's why you're confused. I'm sure you wondered what would happen if you made him mad. I'm sure he'd bets. Run across germont across your mind and it sounds like it wouldn't take much. I mean he's been good for these eight months but who knows how much longer that would last. I mean people change. But i don't think he hasn't because he's still doing it with his ex wife and why haven't you said anything to him about his bad behaviour towards the sex. Why haven't you just sat him down and ask what the problem is. Yeah he told you he was controlling. But there's a lot more to it than that i. I think you really need to have a serious conversation with this man and find out what is going on. Maybe he needs more than just a little bit of counseling. I don't like the field of this. I think these are red flags steve. Well is real simple here. I'm gonna get to it in a second. But i i'm just gonna call this letter red flag letter and i'm going to point out the red flags to you. Thirty six old recently divorced met a great guy. Eight months ago he was just divorced too. We bonded over our divorce dilemmas. Red play y'all bonded over divorce dilemmas. Get your flag on pocket. I'm not saying it's a red flag yet but get your flags out. He was open and honest about his breakup. He told me that he was controlling and they had a rough marriage. Because let's just stop right there. Get your red flag out. He told you he was controlling and they had a rough marriage. The reason they say they had a rough marriage was she liked to fight him and throw stuff at hill book flay. He got a lot going on to get stuff though at you. Oh yeah oh store. Stuff nass calls. Words ain't enough. Get your flag out. He told me that he had to restrain her a lot but he never laid a finger on her. Get your flag out. How do you restrain a person without touching. It helped me now. Let me throw this when he told me that he even took a domestic violence class to try to fix his marriage. He didn't say they took. He said he took a domestic violence girl. Now he took a domestic girl. Get your flag matter of fact. Get your flag out and tapered on your forehead. So when he talking he no. You know that flags is. I'm just trying to help.

Right Action Samma Kammanta (3/7) | Ajahn Brahmavamso | 25 December 2012

"Right good evening. Everyone and mary would ms so normally when we say merry christmas we have a person sitting on a chan- rate suit and white beard. You know who who he is. Yes but we have a mass. We have someone with brown rope and a ball head. Welcome everyone to what one tonight and other talk by brahma will be out also having During the daytime. Meditation retreat here. So the yogis are the retreat. Are those wearing the rate tax. They've been working very hot medicating very early this morning before six o'clock to now so you know very effort. They still practicing very well. This will be practicing to end of this week. They are practicing also noble silence so even though we are having a christmas day of the day. They may not be too sociable tonight. So thanks for your understanding that he had to have done brum to give a talk on this. Buddha must night and tonight's talk will be about one hour then followed by questions and answers questions from you and from my gen and if you like to pose a question that question box right by the draw so write down your questions. Legibly and drop it into the box move. Move box to the front after the talk tonight for agend to answer but try to finish about thirty two hour yogis arrests after this talk and also agenda so i do ask me understanding on this one without further ado. That's put out palms together and class like so welcoming brown to give. Tonight's talk on the fall factor of eight full path right action very good. So tonight's talk is about action. An i'm an action monk i joined just sit here and do think actually i'll treat. I also very hard. Further buddhist relate nosso after religions another good courses in the world. So i'm not just somebody's talks. I also do things. I want other things too out of compassion for each one of you for all the people who wants to make good comma. Is i receive your food out of kind. Says what does talking. I eat a lot to because the story of Father christmas santa claus reminded me of this story. Many people come up to me. And said i jon rahm way want you to live a long time. Please don't eat so much as much of my foot but not the other person's says you're putting on weight but don't why because i'm scientist have some years ago. I got an article from a side magazine and it took away all my hobbies about being overweight. it also sanders with other people. So if you like eating a lot if you fought my advice you will be perfectly safe. Because they've research showing that people who are happy who lawful lot that blood vessels expand and a fact the more happy you are the more your arteries and veins get bigger and bigger and bigger. But if you're angry if you're depressed if you're miserable your blood vessels get smaller and smaller and smaller. So if you are overweight you have lawful lot just like me my blood vessel so big the heaps of cholesterol and fat and other got can go through without causing traffic jam. Which means that. I'm healthy arkady. As much as i like and still. The blood vessels are so wide. You never get heart attack or stroke onset an important question to me. why is it why is it. The fat people are always happy. They are just like father christmas. Ho ho ho. He's happy and he's got each fat and father christmas. He's live for two thousand years. Saw each one of you if you are overweight you better start laughing quick. Otherwise you're dead also sprains to me. I always wondered why that was the eh. You never see any fat miserable people. It's really true all over white paper. A very happy and the reason is anyone who's fat. Add miserable died a long time ago. So i actually. If you do eat a lot you have to laugh a lot. Keep them balance in this world. But anyway the reason i eat a lot is because buddhism is expanding in the west and i have to see it. Is we get off. People becoming put this so i have to expand accordingly so i thank you for making me laugh. 'cause i can live few years now. Now the taught this is about action. As part of the fall authorises number for so. This is actually what you do in your life. So what we mean by people keep on saying long action not katie knows stating or committing adultery. And all that sort of stuff you know what long action is but right action is even more powerful so what is right action in this world. It's like being kind being generous at feed doing something to help people in this world and to give you that first story. And i liked heading this in retreats and in temples bec- while you find out why in a moment this was remember the story of the five fingers no my goodness. You've either coke bad memories as another story. You haven't heard which is a miracle why. Once once upon a time there were five fingers. Five fingers were arguing on. Who was the most important. And i finger was the thumb and say i am the most important finger and the reason why is i of the strongest and also the fattest patches is always the most important. I am the opposable thumb without me. You can't pick up anything. An also. I m the ok finger when you say good okay by goose bahama. On what do you say. Baku's i have the okay finger. That's why i am the best. The strongest the okay finger and the next thing is said nope you're wrong. I am the most important finca. The reason is i am the finger of wisdom. I point out things for people. Where's the door was the toilet. Where's the water. I am the finger of wisdom the index finger and also if you say number one which fingered you put up me. I am the number one finger therefore i am the base and then the middle finger put himself up. I am going to put it the other way round the most powerful figure. If i put that out really upsets people now other people other figure could get reaction. Like and also i am told his finger so i can see further and also last of all in buddhism. Didn't buddhism praised the middle way. And i am the way finger. That's why obviously. I am the best finger and that left the fourth. And she put her hand up and said i have the most important finger because i have the finger of love when you get engaged. Which ring of love does af- receives a finger so which finger saves ring of love when you get married which fingered you pick. Put the the marriage ring on me again. I without love without compassion. Where would the world be so i. The finger of love is a most important finger. Vol- on that left this little fellow on this little fat is said. Even though i'm very small. I ab the most important finger even you all use me to do dirty things. I most important figure an reason. Is this because whenever you worship reporter. I always closest that's why i am the most important finger and all the other four figures at the ass. Okay you win. You're the most important finger and in any tempur. What a two one in any organization like the bg f. The most important person though one who is closest to the buddha is the one who does the dirty stuff by washing the dishes and cleaning toilets. So if you want to be close to the border clean up so that we get people to clean up after the retreat so that some five fingers on who is the most important person the person who does the work. So that's why right action is really important. Many people talk about things but how many people actually do it. We have a row in boating yada modestly other monks. I will say this is a woolwich week. We've been forced if any monk has an idea they have an idea is now let's Renovate the toilets. They have an idea. Let's build a statue. They have an idea. Let's extend the road then. If it's your idea you have to do it. That stops a lot of ideas because people have ideas. I say let's do this. Let's do that but no they expect someone else to do it. We're just the ideas people lazy good for nothing. So if you have an idea you have to do it because the action is most important but action is harder. I why because you're all also busy. You got so many things to do. You got to look after your career. Look after your fabri. Look after your movies which you have to watch so you haven't got time sometimes to go to temple no all a matter of prioritizing to do the important things i ask why the secret of success in life his to do the important things first. That's why my poke hyphen. Dov my your heart. I told a story off the precious stones. The pressure started story. Works like this professor. Cain to business school wide morning at instead of giving the usual lecture he got out a jar. A glass jar. I without heading the students what he was doing. He got out some rox from his briefcase. Put the rocks in jar one after the other until you get no more rocks in the jar. And then he looked at his class and said is the jaw. Full no said yes. is full and he smiled and got some tiny pebbles out from his suit Briefcase and he managed to fit the pebbles in the spaces between the rocks his the jaw full now. When you get no more pebbles in. And i said no probably not. Because i was smart. He got some fine sand out poured it on top of the pebbles and rocks shook the jar and much of that sad found its way in between the spaces between the rocks and pebbles when he could get nomo sat in a jar. Hey asked to gain as the jaw full now. And i said probably not usually find some other way to get something in and ego. The wall to john poured waterman and the wall to found its way in the spaces between the santa pebbles fox on afterwards the class. Now what am i trying to prove to you. What you think is the meaning of this demonstration on one student in the back said saw it proves to us. No matter how busy you are you can always be something more into your schedule. Said no that stress. That's know what i mean at all. What i mean is if you want to get the precious stones in the big rocks you have to put the main i. That was the meaning so aden your life. You have to prioritize what are the precious stones of your life. What's really important here. Get other things out of the way i do. What's important for you. I always fit the other things in Afterwards so your family. Isn't that important for you. Your relationships your health. Your spiritual life with meditation and guide to the temple. That is really important. If you pull those things in your job first of all all the other things like the movie. The cup of coffee with a friend even work you'll fit in after what's prioritize and then you know the first secret of right action. You can always do it if it's the top of your list. Unfortunately these days we don't put all the ties anymore. Which means the you know. We just do stupid things. We're rice talk. We got no time left to go to temple. No time left to be without children. No time left out to spend some quality time with the person you've loved and married no time left for yourself to rest is not a case the way too busy these days. Here's a case. We've lost the ability to prioritize. And i say this because these centers it will similarly before an told us in the interviews. So i'm gonna tell it again for everybody. Now is a similar same recite before it is the how heavy is glass of water. How have until this in business schools. How heavy is a glass of water. The longer i hold it the heavier feels after one minute. I a copter. Two minutes i've been paying after five minutes. I may not guilty and a very stupid monk. What should i do when it starts to get uncomfortable to carry you. Just put it down for thirty seconds is all it takes you read for thirty seconds and if you pick up the cup of water after thirty seconds yes it is feels much lighter and i can continue carrying it comfortably and this is a reason for stress in our modern world. It has nothing to do with how much responsibility and shootings you have in. Life has nothing to do with. How much work you have to do. I know that. Because i work probably harder than any of you. I am the apple of boating. Yana monastry which has twenty one. Monks are supposed to be teaching and all sorts of building project. Some people carbon gap a two thousand strong put his community. Those are the members and most people don't even pay their fees and still ask for free counts middle of the not lie in the evening people. Call me out for from germany and from brazil wanting free. Counseling talking about that meditation and then on the weekend. I've got my city center. Said which is a separate monetary altogether. And i work like anything. They're looking after the committee looking after the teachings managing administrative teaching meditation. Then i've got my retreat center which is sixty rooms which he ivan working through some building work over there. You may have seen me on the roof. Doing the work on the teachers. Cottage the photos of on the internet. And then i've got a nonsmoker. Because to starting to kuni over here really working. Hard to reestablish the kunis in buddhism. And i work over there any problems. I'm the one who has to go and teach over there and help them out. And i'm also other spiritual director seventy respondents which we also copy kunis there. We just reestablish status of kuni price. that's about three hundred acres. that's over in sydney. I have to look after that. And i'm also the spiritual advice with the put society victoria. I was over there just before. I came over here giving a talk and also talking to the committee because they were having some problems. There needed me to sort of common sort out all the problems that buddhist society victoria. They're trying to get some land to build a monastery for kunis as well. I had to be over there. And i just got an email from the buddhist fellowship in singapore because they're organizing a conference and i want some advice on who to advise and also the the abi ever that just after i leave here to give some talks and actually taught the committee over there. And then i'm also i've got the the brom Brown -ociety society in colombo. And i always trying to get me to go over there. And they bromate eucation center in singapore was. Well what else do i do. I mean that's that's really a lot of work. We tried to noon the spare time i write books. And you've got them over there and also my spare time. I have my photograph. I really do. I look stressed out. How come the reason is because when i get tired high put the cup town and rest and the reason why this works is thirty second supporting the cop down as i said to some people often it is an investment thirty seconds arrest software to get more done in less time. It's all about efficiency. that's what it is if efficiency so when do you understand this. When you prioritize prioritizing your family he all hell's your spiritual wellbeing but doing some meditational into the temple doing some donna. It's not wasting time. It's actually improving your performance so you get more work done in less time without any stress every time now. I go to bangkok which. I'm going again in july another place. I have to go that. I always give a talk in the oriental hotel. Six star hotel. I only go to five or six star groups. Btf five-star when i go to enter hotel. I go there. Because i like me to teach the staff the manage what he comes to understand meditation and it recalls some years ago i was in an aircraft domestic flights somewhere in thailand and just reading the local paper the bangkok post and there was a huge article on the oriental hotel. In bangkok is a very good hotel. Really high quality and that year won the prize for best hotel in the world. That's a very very hard price to win the number one hotel in the whole world and the had an article interviewing the owner of the hotel. How come your hotel. One is price this year. What do you do which other hotels doen't answer. Was the manager. Send every worker. Every employee of that hotel to a monastery for one week's meditation year The hotels expense not taken off your holidays. Sending you on retreat. And when the interviewer said are you just trying to be converted everyone to being a buddhist. He said mom. We just do this for best business practice. Because when i said my employees on the company's time to meditate for one week when they come back they don't take so much sick. Leave they are more harmonious said. Don't waste time with office politics and backstabbing and all of that stuff. Which way so much. Time in companies and they are far more sensitive to the guests in hospitality. You have to be so sensitive you must almost know what the guest wants before they tell you they said this is what happens when you meditate. He gets so sensitive so peaceful so kind people pick it up. He said that is our age. That is why we won the prize. So please tell that story to your see when you go back to work at for. Next year's retreat pres camman companies time and paid fear salary for covering to switch game that he works in other words. Another article which i read just before i came here the british army. He's got a number of buddhists in the british army and is about four thousand of them. Active troops who've being in iraq and afghanistan and a british army is sending them in order once in baku In a roster to bald guy at the uk government's expense to meditate to de stress. What a brilliant idea that s so you can actually see that this is probably one of the best right actions you can possibly do to prioritize at. Is your health one of the most important things you put that in a job first of all and all the other things like success in life wealth happiness and all the other things which you aspire to in you works hard for. They come as a natural loss. Please put it in the most important things first. And if you do that the right action becomes very very easy to do is when you are rested and when you are peaceful you don't tend to get angry and upset other people most of anger most of ill-will house when people are so emotionally tie it they trained small things. Make them upset and you will find. Why don't you leave this retreat. Some will come up to you and call you idiots had because you've been on retreat. Your smile yes. I'm any todd k. Why about how to deal with scouting people calling you bad names. I read this a long time ago. In in history cross of the ancient greeks because in the time of ancient greece there was very similar to old in asia. That one teacher would teach a group of students everything from arithmetic to astronomy to the languages and couch. Everything would one tissue teach every week and so this famous teacher in ancient greece. He had a number of students and he would teach them philosophy and language and mathematics so once they finished with his teachers very easy for them to get a job but his peculiarity was the when any student misbehaved and he scolded them every time he scolded. He charged them a few extra dollars. Because it was hard work scouting somebody else so you scolded your student. And he couldn't to pay an extra two dollars and this one student once he graduated he got a job in essence and every time he got scolded he just laughed and every time he got code of fool he just burst out laughing and the more he got scolded the more funny. He thought it was at his boss so upset with him. One day scouted a. Why are you laughing when i scold you and a student said because when i was studying i had to pay for this now i get it for free so those of you who have parents every time you scold or punish your child charge in three ringgit which means way he gets a job or when he gets married and his wife scolds him he would just laugh. I used to have to pay for this. Starting now. i can won't get so. I agree so that is like the right action because we cannot understand. Is it stops is getting so upset about the things which happen in live so right act should is over also what we do and how we train ourselves. What the great right actions is associated with good people are like monks and nuns. Who a wise that we can tell you all sorts of amazing things of how to live a happy life without any problems at all. Monks wise nonsol- wise. So this is what we're doing here and that's why many people come and listen but you know we have some actions which people don't understand. It's not just one person. Many paper of osmani. This recently and this is an important point so this is not really fun anymore. So if you're looking for a job just go to sleep for ten minutes. This is serious stuff because you know. Part of my job is to listen to people to try to help solve their problems and is one problem. Which now half of you here have to face if you haven't faced it already. Well maybe you're lucky round face it but which is up boertien andrew. I'm very passionate about this. Simply because so women both here and in many other countries and also in australia have come out with that problem. They had an abortion or the thinking of having an abortion because pregnant. Fragment and i watering is that long action to have an abortion for the fetus. Little being growing in your tummy to actually take killers ad. I'm passionate about this because first of all it's mostly men who tell you whether it's right or wrong now. The pope the ask the pre the all the pre semaine so number one. They don't know what they're talking about. So i put my hand up. I have never been pregnant. So i don't know what it feels like but i've met enough women who have been through that to realize ako through so much pain making that decision and i realize as a man as manca spiritual leader it is not my right. I have gotten Jurisdiction to say. That's why i told wrong to condemn praise. Anybody the whole idea people judging you when they don't know what you're going through that i think is wrong action. The judging what. I do know that whenever you're making a decision like that the right action. According to the buddha his wedding you'll making a decision to check the your not acting number one out of selfish desire. Tanda naba to you're not acting out of ill will number three. You're not acting stupid and the most important. You're not making a decision out of fear. Those what the put a call for a gatti's selfishness. I ill will. Stupidity and fear. Never make a decision based on any of those four so if a woman is contemplating an abortion. I ask her please check. I'm here to help you make a good decision. Whatever decision you make. I'm here to support you before. And afterwards i would never criticize you. I would love you to bits no matter what way you go. That's the door to my heart is always open a my goodness swimming. Who make those decisions need that support. One hundred percent is so hard to get that people so if you see any monk or nun any sort of parent or grandparent. Say it is wrong blackman. Y no way. They don't know what they're talking about is far more complex than that is never black and white so number. One hosk yourself. Am i making the choice outta person as i. It was to put it off here. You ask any women's being through that they consider so deeply is such an important decision that would never make that decision heedlessly when they might that decision which have away that guy into gaza because it's made in the right way is always a light decision. Remember com the law of comma. His all about the action but the the most important part of the action is the intention behind it. What did you mean to do. What was the intention. What was the state of your mind was itself was. Ill will wasn't stupid. Was it out of fear so these are ways of checking out and for those of you who are worried about what happens to that being who almost made it into the human world but never did i usually like giving a similar because i love giving similarly so people can understand from experiences in their daily life happens. It's almost exactly the same. As when i go to the airport and i check in lights and the people behind the counter said i'm sorry sir. The flight is overbooked. You haven't got a seat. Your bumped off like hold that bumping in in dallas. That's ever happened to you if it does happen to you. The flight is folded over boat in a get. You a seat. That's like an abortion. You almost got in but you got bumped off what happens in the airport. If you get bumped off a flight you get priority in the next available flight and an upgrade business class which really nice so basically. That's what what happened with a kid who doesn't quite make in this woman's were the next available womb an upgrade also basically they don't lose out so darn think that somehow you've denied that kid a chance for human life. They will get a human a later on most people have abortions later on in life. You know they. They'd get pregnant at a much better time with a much better situation. They have their kid another kid and they live a wonderful life. So don't feel guilty. Buddhism doesn't do guilt guild is wrong is wrong. Thought while guilt means. Is you think. I'm a bad person to be punished. I don't deserve to be happy. We don't have guilt in buddhism while instead what we have. You acknowledge what you've done next. Step his forgive this wonderful sense of forgiveness. Input is doesn't matter what you've done here. Always forgiven are never mind. You made a mistake knowledge. You acknowledge then you forgive and the next stage is you. Don't put yourself in a stupid position again because a lot of time. It's just we make mistakes. Sometimes you know we were stupid especially women having sex without protection you know you think the boys got protection. Never trust the boy and they end up. Being the boy can walk away. He's he's he's got no problems. You're the one with the problem so please you make very careful and that's what you learn an everything which we do in life is the same process. We've knowledge we forgive and we learn from our mistakes. That is so way we grow. Because of that. Some years ago i introduce what i call the seventy percent rule. Because this occurred. When i was a schoolteacher i was a schoolteacher for what i told you about the boy who came bottom of the class but when she had to set examinations in mathematics. That was my subject. I was teaching. Because it was easy when i was teaching maths i had to set my first exam and i had to ask one of the other teachers. Can you please give me some advice. How to set exams and this now senior teacher a very wonderful advice. He said settling the examination attest. So the average score is about seventy percent aim for seventy percent because if you set the test too hard so everyone gets about twenty thirty forty percent. Most of your students will get discouraged. Will think khandu maths and they'll lose motivation. But if you give the exam so the average scores ninety five hundred percent then. There'll be a waste of time people in college. It's too easy. But if you make it about seventy percent of the average score then on nearly all the children will be encouraged yes. I can't do mass. It's a good a good score but also the thirty percent where they make. Mistakes latte is where you can see their weaknesses. You can see the the areas where you have to teach your next lessons. So the examination is to motivate but also for me that teach of the guests and feedback. What how their weak points so the next lesson. I can teach those weak points. And i realize that sustainment life if you always get one hundred percent in life. Nothing ever goes wrong for you. You never have any problems or difficulties. Yeah you have an easy life. You don't learn any think you stack night but if in life you only get thirty or forty percent things always go wrong for you. You do get depressed. So the best goal in life is seventy percent so most things go right be have enough problems and difficulties in life. That is so. If you've got a husband who's about seventy percent. Keep him one hundred percent. If is a perfect husband. You'd never learn anything you women so that expand perfect husband because he stagnate in line with with husband seventy percent good wife. That's good enough in fact that's the best and so what. We mean that the mistakes which happened in life we know the abortions the breakup of marriages the fact. You may invest in august. Lost you tell a joke and people don't understand it but it is seventy percent is enough. It's the best because that's where you learn grow. And that's what we really mean by acknowledging forgiving mistakes and learning my mentioned this house sit side is previous to the beach f because sometimes i wonder you know. Lying is so bad space meant to the yesterday. It's bad action. Why do people lie for is not just good enough to say now don't lie is one of the hardest precepts for people to keep. Yeah you can give up alcohol but like is that why which everyone finds difficulty with our modern world. Why is it people lie. Especially why is it. That children lied to their parents. That's the thing which i find so disgusting. Why is it the wives. Lots of husbands and husbands lied to lives. The reason is because lying. It has benefits telling the truth. You just get punished and scouted. That's one of the problems with kids. And i came across this again where young people would come to me and say john. I'm pregnant. sixteen seventeen year olds. Because i've been. I've been in perth for such a long time most thirty years many. These kids have grown up with the womb. And i saw me. And i have been blessing them ever since so they know me. I'm there monk. I'm like another grandfather to them so when they're in trouble i'm the one they come to atom bomb. I'm pregnant too. Why did you tell your mom and dad what they'll kill me. Can you please tell them for me. It's quite as sweet. But so why can't you tell your mom and dad has because they're so scared they'll get punished and scolded and that's happened so many times. That kids go in trouble with drugs. I asked make can you please. Nah sorta out with my dad. And i said why did you tell him. Hit the roof. Find out now. Can you see what the problem is on. Why kids to their parents. If you have kids please let your children know. They can tell anything to their parents. Same should be ashamed of. But as long as i tell the truth they would not be punished. Make the truth so important. Why import than anything else. As long as honest. I have amnesty. And if you can do that your kids your children who will face problems in life. They always know they can come to their parents when they're in the biggest trouble knowing the perez will help them rosalyn scouting. Those are the times a young go needs the parents most of all. They're in trouble pregnant. The son has in trouble with drugs. They need all the help they can get and they hide it from the paper can help them the most because they're scared they can see the problem there. So that's why forgiveness. Amnesty is so important. I imagine you had a relationship. Your husband your wife and you knew you could say to them and you would not get scolded as long as you were honest. Now you could tell your wife that there's a girl in the in the office you getting some last. Four se doubting. I need your help a dangerous situation. I'm a guy now. She's really attractive and beautiful. Please help i need you. He citing that because he wants to relationship to know with you to keep on going. He realizes as appropriate so many men afraid to tell that why they try to fix it out by themselves and they just get deeper and deeper into last interflora arctic and sit and they have a mistress. Would it be wonderful. If the husband felt he could share everything with his wife and his wife would never shout at him. Scotty moore hit and assign the other way around. Could see how important truth. And if we value truth that much that the people we live with the ones we love the most in a husband or wife kids op. Haven't we can tell those anything and never will week scolded the same. That many of you know me. You could tell anything. And i would never ever will have scouted you even though many times you desire. Isn't that a wonderful thing. Because you feel a loss you can share these problems you up inside and can get some good help less his side with not things like abortion now. I feel so sad. Some of you can't tell bodies are come and tell me and i'll just say this okay. You're a good girl. Go wonderful person. You haven't done anything wrong. It's most of the women in this room were probably had abortions and that's actually probably a fact setting it because we were shamed. Don't be ashamed. Just acknowledge it. It's not a bad thing. You try to very best in life but it never worked out the wrong time and place to have a kid so please don't hurt yourself on that you're totally absolutely hundred percent. Forgiven an odd love. Bits no matter what you've done even angrily marla. He didn't kill baby. Kill grown up people hundreds of them. What are the buddha do bad and goatee marla bad. You're gonna go to hell angry. Did i go to malaita hail. He became a site. So that's actually shows you. What buddhism actually is totally forgiving kind gentle accepting fatty doing honesty and forgiveness above any type of punishment. I don't do punishment a neither. Should anyone in buddhism we're a chi- jet was otherwise to solve problems. As i think you understand so many guys the things like a ball should come on. Give yourself a bright women and don't allow yourselves to be judged by may accept me. what other things. Oh yeah oh always wanted to say a right. Action is actions. It's not just not doing anything wrong doing things which inspire you and energize you. It is hard work being chen prom. But i get so much energy when you start helping and serving others is one key story because i love you. You read this in the redis in the suit as you hear it from your teachers for you never understand it as much as when you practice it yourself and find out my goodness. He's actually works. It's not theory actually nature's truths and this is compassionate serving others looking off to somebody else now did mention in brief about washing action jaws towed the other night and how much happiness and energy. I got out of that. There was another time when three of my friends were about to ordain as monks and it was the rule established by aapgeneva at that time. If you're going to ordain as a monk you have to make your set of three robes yourself starting from white cloth you have to cut it so it on one of these treadle sewing machines. No electricity. now that took a long time. 'cause we man with no used to sewing we had to do it all by ourselves and learn how it stopped and then once. The road was also not which took a cooperative dice. Then you had to die it and to die the robe you we use jack. Fruit would so get some old timber from jack fruit tree which had died with a machete. Which had to shop in yourself. Learn how to do that. Chop the The would into little chips and then we put it in his break meadow basin. You put on the outside. Assert the basin dean get chart hauling water from the well. There's no tap water finding would to light a fire and just boiling the water pudding. Chips in and then the sap would come out straining it and then boiling it again to concentrate. the sat. Three roads took a lot of di di three or four times. When it was died a natural diet had to keep turning the road turning otherwise die would streak until it held that was so labor intensive. It was taken these monks about three or four days. And you had to do it. Twenty four hours no sleep. A niece free monks being going for two days already about forty hours. They hadn't slept and it was a evening. I'm a compassionate mark. I always think an i practice. Compassion is even more important than the rules is actually the heart of the rule. Sir now. I was breaking the rules by to help them. That's threat themselves. I went off to the evening meeting about ten o'clock and say you guys you don't have arrest all look after the dipoto tonight for you. They never argued. They will see the booth so fast. Because i know what it's like when you haven't slept with such a long time it just as torture and then i just looked after the dipoto all night by myself now making the die straining it when it got to three o'clock in the morning. That's when the bell wins in the monasteries in thailand and they all came back again as hell thank you so much and we had a few hours. That was a lovely. we feel. Okay now that's all we need it. And then i went off to instead of take arrest. There was a morning meeting the chanting and meditation. I never had so much. Energy charlton was a loud voice. A meditation perfectly straight no snowing so pleased out nor in a hole in the morning. We've already had complaints. If you find someone snoring you got compassionately so even if it's me so pleased us noise disturbing people. So i had fought energy that morning and i hadn't slept all night working hard in the morning after we finished the morning. Meditation and chanting and we set up. The hall went our arms around another way back. I asked one of the senior monks. Say this is really strange. You know i. I'm sorry. But i admit i broke the role last night. I helped these monks one. Let them have arrest and the hedmark head maxwell's acquitted so k. As a very wonderful thing you did so well done. But i said why am i so love got so much energy usually in the morning i'm sleepy said because you helped somebody else just as simple was my goodness that's true. That's we'll all. The energy came from simple self-sacrificing serving others. It's amazing how much energy you get just. But i don't think he yourself but just helping others helping other people do the wash up. Even though it's not your turn just helping somebody else with a cooking cleaning or whatever is you wouldn't believe how much energy you get from. Selfless service so much so that many people who suffer from depression. Yeah you've gotta take those pills for the time being but if you want a much better therapy for depression go and volunteer to do some community service icon. Got no energy that exactly. That's why you need to do so. Community service help somebody else. You do that. Go no the floors in the hospital. Garages help sweep out the btf whatever. It is not only closer to the buddha. You get huge amounts of energy. That's where i get lots of energy now working hard for other people. And that's also i have fun. I just didn't they didn't let me do it. But as always coming in here. I am the door for one of my attendance. Come and you go through icon. Congress was supposed to open the door for you to go through so it's great fun when you do things like this you serving other people helping other people and we have great fund. Either in one because over in perth are taught this for such a long time. It is a matter how senior you are. If i get to the door. I i'll buy when you were not do that. It's funny energizes. You and you know we respect one another. We respect our seniority. Who's a teacher. But it's the fun of doing service that is right action while the problems with people today. They feel they have got no time. Because i've got no time. That's why they get tied. And it's it's the self-serving a self-supporting cycle you find the time you make more time you have more energy and you have even more time so darn to sit lay go help somebody lesser idea of generosity and generosity of this not just giving your money that's easy generosity to is giving your time giving your energy for something else and he gets so much happiness that way. We often say that when we get volunteers to buildings in our monetary. They do a much better job than professional builders even if they're professional builders themselves they come and work for charity. They put that extra love and energy into what they're doing. That is why it's a much better job. Because when it's not for myself when i'm giving for others have more energy much beautiful action and you get much better things as a result so the father tree work in any society and community is essential. Not just for getting things done for giving people sense of purpose southworth energy feeding of goodness inside that is important right action we also have generosity which is also a paul ted way never charged monks opie kunis. I was told to pick kuni customer. And hopefully this talk hostess. Reline kerr the monks on looking after the nonsense re lanker and i'm very well known injury. Lanker that's disgusting monks. we should teach by saab. i know. I taste by abu bhikhuni. Coucilman knows i are the extra effort to try and support a very good. 'cause that's my community work or even coming here to serve the beach. If i have to do this with my good good is i get a lot of energy out of it. This is because it selfless service so that is why generosity in all forms in our giving the at donations to the monasteries. Now that is also gives me lots of happiness and energy. I still to this day. Remember one of the first talks. Which i which i listened to as a student in cambridge was over buddhist nun. She was tibetan tradition. But i don't care what tradition your from as you know. I'm so trying to be as eclectic as possible untried and bring all the traditions take gazza so when people ask me i john what traditional you from and sometimes i go to mahayana temples and i say how many students have you so we what to many students. Because we're too busy meditating. And i'd say i'm more of a body sat for the new. You're i sacrifice myself others say yes. You're ma more mahayana giambra than we are. I am look how much i sacrifice and serve other. People was that stupidity. Nice dies is loving kindness compassionate. So i try and bring everybody together. There's only one buddhism so in order to do that. I my vehicle. My tradition is not televised. It's not marianas on. It's a combination of all three. And you know what's coming up next year the name of it i take the hey ch- from hinna. The letters. the are from yana. And the yana from watery. Ana hate plus. I hate jay crush. Yana what does that spell ha. Yana my vehicle crime yano monk and is not refreshing tradition giving sort of fan unhappiness to what you're doing this way we get the energy for so this is actually right. Action to law is right action so wonderful generosity of spirit because when you laugh you laugh with other people. It's a wonderful way of getting harmony. As sometimes i've told jokes to catholics and anglicans and muslims and they all laughed together and not by the way with sharing the stupidity of human life. The fatness f reporting. Get such out and we're want again. We're together how laughter unites. People reminds me of the story of the of the christian. The jew and the poor taste christian priests jewish rabbi and a buddhist monk who met together for interreligious harmony and they used to have talks and they realize the talk and not enough so they had a lunch every day every week. The made sure is before. Twelve o'clock so the buddhist india could actually join in. And i realized the lunch was not enough. They needed to have more social interaction to get to know each other and trust each other so one of them. Now the the christian priests said. Why don't you just play a game of cards. you know. that's what we do for social one thing leads to another and the guy with cards tend to all out gambling. And that was the guy law and somebody let's on this priestess rabbi and this mantra gambling and they got arrested by the police and they had to go to court and they josh got the christian priests first of all he said. Now you're a man of religion. I've not gone to mess around. I'm just gonna ask you where you gambling and a priest very quickly rolled his eyes to the sky. Forgive me lot. i'd said no. The judge never saw that quick. Look to the sky. Forgive me lord so already heard was a pre site no so he let the priest's car next was by he said rabbi gambling and rapa. He crossed his fingers behind his back to do everything not at school. And i said no. I was dabbling. Okay you can go then. He asked a monk. You're always honest. You keep precepts even voting people. So i'm just gonna ask you believe what you say. Well you gambling monk said with whom at straightaway did you feel harmony with one. Another all laughing together. So never underestimate. I don't tell these jokes just for entertainment. It creates a great sense of esprit. Have like working together of a group telling jokes in the office takes away the office. Politics craze cresa team. That's why huma is really important in religion twitchy to overcome the barriers between people between traditions. Only is it right action. It gives you good health it all the arteries and also it gives you the energy so these are some of the right actions which are important in life so just because at nine o'clock already so better stopping ottesen questions now you see that action does a lot of generosity there a lot of kindness helping authors not just taking of yourself making that so important prioritizing the important things in your life making sure your schedule those in i get all the other stuff in afterwards by the move year lights tv series. You like you get on the internet later on so scheduling. What's really important in life. And now that becomes your right action. Creating peace and harmony will. You're creating a beautiful world and that's also creates the energy. When i served other people the energy so that when i had the time to be still in peaceful had so much good entity inside. It's very east to get good meditation just finishing the it was surprising to me that even when i was a young monk i was always into surfing the other monks for years i was doing visas for them for thailand and some the other mindset. No you go off and meditate outta visa for it was a lot of hard work but when they came back from the mountains and i asked him how the meditation was surprise. I found my meditation was fought deeper and more profound i. I couldn't understand that what you had so much more time. And i was doing work and just meditating in the evenings and the mornings. Not as much as you did. How come the. My meditation was deepened. More profound realized afterwards because white action. I've been helping us. I've been serving others. Those being selfless and got so much energy and joy out of that and that energy and joy was raised in my meditation with strong. So you have to balance your life even if you think that. Just being a hermit in john q. Get great meditation. It doesn't work. That way. The hermits and the jungles meditating day in day out get very dry. They haven't got the choice. The too tight the meditation into date status balance it with your service to the community. Not too much. Have time for yourself prioritize if on the right balance amid away the right action is a huge support for the stillness of mind. We take you all the way to the banner. We gotta okay now. The action is also saw two saw two saw very good see. That's why actions it makes you happy. Ricochet wiggled wow. I better because get started here. We got we got a number one record. Pres advice how to encourage children to do their best. The trend seems to be just doing enough or bare minimum to get by okay. Even though they have the ability to do much better talking counsel them does not seem to work nor taking pivots praising them thank you look off. The children will be below average. No matter what you do half your children will be below average. So i tell the parents if your child comes in the top five percent score all the bottom five percent at school. You are not good. Buddhist parents put us believe in the middle way. So if your kid comes in the middle somewhere very good they're the best cassivi asli. The kids actually listen to this and they tell their mom and dad see agim rob said so. You've had it. You cut with that. But as that his nine there was a guy who wrote that amazing book emotional intelligence coleman. He's a buddhist. 'cause what he recognized is your intellectual achievement. How what do you do at school. His no indicator of how well you to in life. Just how your kids do. What school the greats. Like with the go-to university. What university go to that is not a trustworthy indicator of how successful they will be in a knife the successful indicator what will predict for you. Yes they will succeed and do. Well get a good job good income. A good family is emotional intelligence. That's why as parents it's more important. You count avait your children's emotional intelligence trustworthiness virtue that goodness kindness. That is more important than what they do at school. With the time that writes that actually changes the whole game of being up children. If your children happy got lots of friends feel good about themselves at. Don't care if they're not doing you know in the top half at school. They're not going to university. Your kids will be successful in life and you'll be very proud parents but if your kid force them to get into the top five percents will be one at life. The how many kids on talking seriously now commit suicide get depressed because a parents force him to hot as especially the case in singapore. Please don't be like that. Cultivate emotional intelligence in your children. Get a copy of that book read it. You know what i'm talking about. Then your children will be successful. That be happy in life. You don't need to be a surgeon. Dr a top engineer to be successful. look at me. I dropped out. But i've completed mardi gras. But what a waste of time. That was doing so radical physics but i developed my emotion. Intelligence is a monk successful. Would you let your son to be like me. I i told this to the chief forever and a long time ago and he thought it was very funny repeated it in malaysia. People saw happy when somebody or danes is among as long as it's not their son somebody else's saw so inspired so wonderful great but not much someplace. Okay next question here. We go once in a hospital in early told the doctors and family members if ever she falls into a coma difficulty breathing. Do not incubate or do anything to revive as. She said she was ready to die. My question is are. We not allowing ourselves to die as when without the machine somewhat have gone also. Does that mean somewhere meant to go already. How could i change okay. This is like a getting onto the point of euthanasia. Now is that. What action is that wrong action. We got some interesting parts now. Should we resuscitate or should we not resuscitate that should be the decision of the person in the hospital bed. So if your mom or dad or your favorite mark says darn resuscitate me. you know. i've had enough served enough talks on the internet. You don't need anymore. You've heard all this before so you should respect the wishes of your parents or your friend. You'll love it said choice. And that is not bad. Come his bad khama to kill other people but not oneself a member pointing that out wants to very senior banking. She like. he argued with me at first. I pointed out the pie. Good show right. You have control over your own body. So that's why. I always say use a nation that is wrong. That's whether talk to otherness. Kills you say we're putting you out of your misery. That's not the case. The doctor is putting you out of them is they. Don't like to see suffering like that so it should be a personal choice. For voluntary euthanasia is different than other folks have used nicer. That is when the person themselves the one who is suffering before it too far. They caught actually make a choice. They decide to go to places like exit international in switzerland where they Assessed number one. The disease has to be terminal with no reasonable chance of any recovery. Basically ninety nine point nine percent. You're gonna die. The quality of life is just not there and number three. There is no coalition toll from family from friends. It really is an act of free choice and that takes a lot of time making sure that not depressed. The no in some sort of psychological distress though info command of their sentences and it is a free choice and then they given the means to end their own life. Matt's very popular in the west. Many people want that but governments don't allow it in some places some places later and one of the reasons. It convinced me when. I went to visit my mother who had alzheimer's disease for three years when she couldn't recognize anybody. I didn't find that. Her condition was so terrible because he always had a very positive attitude in life and attitude remained when she had alzheimer's not suffering. Until you could see that. I knew my mother even though she could not recognize anything he was pretty easy going. There was two other patients in that ward. Who a terrified. Because i sat next to one of them and every moment there were waking up in a place. They couldn't recognize sitting next to people. They didn't know that's what happens in house. Imus you're waking up in strange price every month when of your life with people you don't know trust. They were in terror and that was constantly. When i saw that he would never even the tear gantanamo bay or these underground torture chambers in the world is not as hard as that. I saw that my goodness that is unacceptable. If ever if well cannot be traveling somewhere even a hotel and he woke up. Done away you are. You can have a taste of what it feels like. That could be you. So i remember a one of the great s. assists in the house of lords in england. I forget what was that. Come to me lighter one. The how goodness maybe. I'm getting alzheimer's too. That she said that was one very convincing argument to allow in special situations voluntary euthanasia. So people don't go that far before they get their research choice. They take that choice. And i know from my readings of the via and the the suitors. That is not considered to be unethical. That if your choice you take control of your comment. So that's but when it comes to other people that's where it gets more complicated and one of the things which some of you will face is maybe your mother or father and they're already in a coma. They haven't left any instructions. They left instructions. That makes it very easy for children. Mother was always said now done fifa. Now turn off the machine so you are not kidding your mother if that happens you're conveying mother's others instructions and that is not cold kidding. It's just doing what your mother wanted his her choice. But the problem comes sometimes when your mother is in a coma she hasn't left directions and you are the one who's asked. Shall we turn off the machine and many of you know killing. Your mother and father is one of the worst commerce you can do. So it's really sensitive. What should you do is a very easy answer which is ask your mom and you may have heard me say this before. What i mean is sitting next to your mother who is in a coma hold her hand just oscar. Mom are you still there or have gone. 'cause sometimes people come live already died just a body shot. His left other people gather stood inside. And you will know if you ask the question. You'll feel your mother still there. If she's still de keep her guy. She's gone telling the doctor to turn off the machine. You're not killing her gun. The stream of consciousness is left. She's dead. I've done that many times helping people. Maybe they're not sensitive enough. The classic case was his fitna amis guy. He had a bypass now bypasses. I don recover. He was on the edge of life and death. I don't know how i did this. I visited the icu. About four or five times a day for three or four days. I did that. Because i realized he really was on the edge. Now he'd be going out. Disenchant a meditation bringing back again. They call me stepped off again a boarding back again so many times but the one last time i went in there or went into the hospital. I see you just getting back again. When i sat next to him was totally different. he'd gone. there's no one that you could feel it. And i just tell the doctors and the the daughter so he's gotta and the doctors were amazed they were not and i didn't know the machine so it's just you know you can feel then i was only just a monk who is sitting that if that's your mother or father you know so if that's you and you got that in to make this is how you to sit next to hold your mom your dad's hand mayawati your kids hand and just ask you you still there while you got and you will not and if that gone turnoff machine you're not kidding anyone already dead. It's great being a monk like this. Because i can give answers to really difficult questions which people have to face. Life portions comas. Houston and you do that. Based on a diamond based on meditation and if really powerful stuff what does las advice to students with strive diligently and we put a reach guy before the alignment. He made a vow that he would not leave the seats under the budgetary. If he did not gain alignment. But i don bomb. You have isis is to relax and be compassionate where we live and if we too relaxed should we not strive harder thank you. It's a bit late now. So i'm gonna put that question until we do the right effort which is only another two nights time. So that's coming up. I'm not avoiding the question because that comes in light effort. What number six so. That's today's basically tuesday. That thursday by myself with some tishreen meditation. How is that possible. It's north side more happiness. I am a man. Having some tastes seems embarrass. -i now ask all the goes Wonderful you're a sensitive man and the next question is are you single girls and like sensitive may and it's all right to cry. I cry many times. Especially when i get inspired and i. I was quite when i go to india. The two places. I cry on the voters peak and also when i see that beautiful statuette Hats bananas the checker. 'cause i don't know why it is so beautiful. It gets me every time. I just i. I is the first time. I saw that statue. And i've seen on the front cover books and i went through. You know the pocket benaras. Afterwards i went into the museum and i went looking for. That's the only reason. I went in there to look for that statue and there was no guidebooks was no god's anyway you just go in there wonder wherever you want and so i was looking for and looking for an are. Turn the corner on the end of the passage so beautiful. I don't know why but that sometime statues pieces of are perfect. And that's one of those stretches which really gets to you deep inside. I don't know why most beautiful statue in the world is the next time i went. I was taking a group of pilgrims i was. Well prepared. you know. i'm not gonna cry. this time. I know how powerful is and a group in front of everybody. Ooh don't mind that and the third time was inspiration. It just gets right inside of you just tears. The third time watch prepared for this. And i was actually looking forward to have a good cry in front of my favorite put a statue that i told people look motion of this put a statue. Don't mind if i cry return. The cord is ready for a good cry. It was covered by a cloth patick. Our that was really ever you me expectation. Shouldn't expect anything. And i was really so disappointed and it is one of the things i was looking forward to. You go older to india and it's really a hard trip and you get this price looking for. And i never said anything but the painter he looked at me and he took the cloth off. Although it's wonderful because told me about expectation. But i got my reward in the nfc my favorite buddha statue and get inspired tears of joy like that. Please go for them. This cry your man. His co. pity is one of the forms of pity. And that's what's supposed to happen when you meditate you get joined it. Sometimes it gets too much and just tears coming down his very wonderful for you is right action. it's not a guy precepts gopher. That's the one. I'm not gonna finish release. I've got all these to do in five minutes. I've no issues with the pasta. Fuchsia is a present moment. Instead of my breath i took on a rising and falling of someone snoring. That's my meditation object. It went on for hours. How best to overcome such hindrances. This is what you should do because someone is snowing in here. They're fast asleep. Get a couple of friends. The faucet sleep lift him up and tell them outside and so when they wake up he allowed to just tap them and say that's okay so you can actually just tap them into to them. Sust shot up to one of the facts of indictment is investigation of the denver and investigate quality of the mind which examines which exposed just his elements of mind. Body was what are the elements of mind and body. Well first of all again. I'm going to give talks about the insight practice which happens when you get into deep meditation. Why need the dharma in front of you. First to investigate it some people don't investigate the dominate investigator also stupid stuff and that's not investigating dumb. That's investigating snowing so to actually investigated the donald. You have to have a lot of very deep dom in front of you. First of all. I was a scientist. You have to have some important results. First of all get the data in once. The data is any investigate it but a good scientists never investigates today to only half the data is in. You gotta stop investing everything so all the data in because if you investigate to make conclusions when only half the data is in you tend to bend the data to be fair quite Investigate that's why investigation should always come at the end. Not the middle bronco into that game. Might one kind of person with mental illness. Depression with prescribed meditation practice meditation. F you answer is yes. What is the best method recommended. The answer is yes. This is the best method. Of course mind is the best method. You are getting manco non. What's the best method. Never say that monk over this method is much better than mine. We always say. Bob is the best with it so you go and try out see. What's the best method for anyone with mental illness. Saudi pressure please do not do the very very fierce meditations where there's lots of striving go very very sensitive and fragile. The last thing you need is actually force meditation. Which is very aggressive. That's where you may shatter and get even worse this type of meditation with a lot of kindness of love a lot of pace. This actually is very good for those people with depression. Dhiraj bomb you mentioned. Don't try to please others but when we don't pres others angry and scout you for not doing it but when you do please and they go you anyway. Then they go whatever you do so you might as well not pleased them a please yourself. You're gonna get scolded. That's like me. I never planned a future. Because when i don't plan the future things go wrong when i don't plan for the future things go wrong when i do plan for the future. They go wrong anyway. Hardaway goes all so nothing to lose as well not enjoy myself. That's the way try to please others ice-cold you anyway. Doesn't that happened please. You so hard to please your husband. You keep praising him praising he's still culture say roswell just enjoy yourself to place your skull so go be now where we went on that trip to india. What is was one furry. It's actually from malaysia. Some teachers got she'd gone back otherwise he'd come for the talks. We put this. We had this rule any complaints on the pilgrimage. You get fined five dollars and we give it to some charity. The end of the pilgrimage raising money 'cause on pilgrimage in india. Sometimes the food is difficult. Sometimes your light. The roads are difficult. You have to go and do your business in the in the paddy fields. It's really rough and cost so sometimes people complain so of getting people complaining. We would have to do this. We can't do anything about if you complain. You are fine five dollars and this guy as soon as we mighty announcement when he got out fifty dollars. He put his straight in a box so he could have ten credits such a complainer. Anyway people going to scowl juice so just face yourself. I stopped my career with children with special needs. I love being with an even teaching limitation march challenges. Some parents g the kids with special needs a grace of parents. Which was the problem. I'll so parents something on refused to accept. The child has special needs something. It's that carbon. There are being punished. All please calm is not punishment. Com is just giving you opportunities people with special needs. They are not worse told stigmatize and they're just different. That saw in a site monks different. We have special needs to stigmatizes we we it and i'm not being punished by karma chambas being punished sex in his lifetime probably because he had too much his loss. This is not party but this is good fab. Something is that cobb. That'd be punished to be such a kid. Something children's cover some even. Tell me if one day the world out of resources weakest of them is a. I be sacrificed on. They're not the week is sometimes the best. I speak from experience. Because one of the things i what i speak i. Actually when i was a student. There was two of my friends. Were actually what amount of my best friends was a christian. I was a buddhist. 'cause he was a christian supporters were always competing with each other. Who's got the best religion. Yeah it's just friends. So when i heard that he volunteered to work one afternoon a week in the hospital for the mentally disabled. Also he's doing that. I do as well. It was just keeping out with the opposition. Not so if the christians do it the puts it better to it as well so i went every often to this mental facility for this disabled and it was actually doing some. Ot work with down syndrome. Kids those christians. After two weeks now they stopped going. I went there for two years. And i was a student. Had a full social life a lot of work today. But i wouldn't miss that for the world. I love going to that price full but hospital to where the down syndrome kids because it was so refreshing. Those guys girls. They were emotionally intelligent. And i compare them with some of the professors. You hang out with in cambridge. I'd rather be with the down syndrome. Kids because they they had their act together emotionally intellectually. That will really wait out. Sometimes they couldn't speak but they see me coming this. I knew i'd been out. Light had an argument with my girlfriend and felt doubt they come out to me and give me a big hug. They could they could tell me straightaway howard feeling. They were emotional. Genesis and i learned so much from them. I think that as a man in nineteen sixties and seventies being hot by another man. And i wasn't gay. I was heterosexual. That took. That was really hard to take that and to be careful emotionally. They really got me in touch with my emotions. And i thank them. Whatever emotional intelligence. I have today which i can share with you. A lot of that comes from two years being trained and learning from down syndrome children. That's why that when people say the kids with special needs crew. They all special the better than a lot of us. And i know that from personal experience and not being punished. I think we are just not smart enough to appreciate the gifts now. That won't be the. I would be sacrificed to i. I'd sacrifice of politicians so sacrifice the bag because few bankers here man does sacrifice eighty. So it's not that common for goodness say just a few more priests are not gonna finish this evening so when it's time just let me know what does difference between mindfulness and awareness won't be my without being aware vice versa. No this save is close enough. Mindfulness and awareness close enough. Thank you for such a wonderful teaching good. I should quit. Why behead People returned from near death. Experiences most describe seeing the light some see loved ones no longer alive in the earth including children's he grandparents. They may never have met in a lifetime. Please explain his because grandparents are there to greet home. Isn't that what happens when i go overseas when i when i came to a few days ago i was met by paying and few other people. So that's the same. When i hear that you're going to note wherever is go. Hey she's coming really all at the airport to meet. You will who. That's that's actually what's really happening is actually real. Saudi for the teachings is meditation. Cana- retreat pecan can a retreat be conducted in three days five days seven days or even two weeks. Just curious whatever you want. The best odd is a retreat for all your life as cold ordination.

Please advise if this meat for books to will. I have bad for meeting. This meeting is your boss. Does it live seafood. Taylor book you actually see. The item was an killed especially for you. So no you. It's okay to make us stand with your boss. That's it's okay. You eat live seafood. But i'll take something else on the menu because sometimes buddhist are not assertive enough. If you're muslim work we can with your boss. The boss would not make you eat pork would never do that. So you stand up for principles. I'll eat something else. If all of you do that. Then it'd be no problem anymore. possibly you put us. You have to do this but sometimes put us a bit too weak. Please stand up for yourself. Why chocolate and cheese for eight precepts if you don't want it you don't have to draw lied somewhere. That's sweet jamba. I'm i have a fairy fairly easy sales job pay as well. But i'm keen to work as a council to help people who counts council you if you've got a good job which pays well this don't complain other people about what it very good mask very skillful but i came to work as a counter to help people. I'm unsure if i concur with a negative emotion of patients. Stay happy peace. Advise whether i should take on this new challenge with thanks public. If you've got a good job even in your work that always be people who need your help so you know you got a sales job is not just a job. You're his how you do the job. And i'll talk about that. Tomorrow's talk about right livelihood so he doesn't have to be a professional council. But old counselors have friends who sometimes oscars you know to have some help in their life so still you can actually travel your fans first of all. If that's you're good at it then may beat sisters some mock first of all keep your good job and then do a little bit of counseling. See how you is it true that if a person could choose meet that is already being prepared he would be reborn mandible five hundred times in his next lifetime. Oh my goodness having trouble. No even the buddha ate meat. Even at john. Shaw eight me i ate flocks. I got to be born as a flog providence. That's that's not true. My mother eighty four years. Old had a fracture a few months ago. She's recovering well for the last many months. I the only one of four siblings giving all the emotional care and attention. She needs many times just driving me mentally and emotionally two times. I felt. I have not done enough for her. Please advise me me what to do. Four years old. Another every moment count. Yes long as your. You're not giving your other siblings chance to do that. Youtube as well. So sometimes you get out the way and then he'll other siblings will have to take up the slack so when you have compassion remember compassionate always goes to other people at yourself as well you count on. Many many people. Filial party is so strong it becomes filial stupidity. Say that seriously because they're not looking after yourself. You count as well. It has to be balanced looking after your parents. Looking after yourself otherwise. Your own health gets compromised and yukon. When you get sick you caught. Look after anybody. So that's why we have. Things called response taking time off now. You can't look after your parents all the time. You have to have to yourself as well. It's all about balance a bit away. Quarter where i my eyes and just stay in the moment it becomes very still an observing then when i said my best my mind moves and so it's creeping again. Is it possible to skip watching my breath. Part still progressing by meditation. Not just stay still gonna watch my mind. Yes you can. That's very smart question. Doug choosing breath to stay still. And i will take you all the way. Nevada expressed disease to nevada stillness. Thank you for very much for your tummy. Talk and your witty jokes. Whoever wrote this is very discerning and very intelligent and got a very good taste for my jokes. I intend to stay single. My parents Jack me and asked me to get married from time to time. It's very annoying. How to deal with that Reasoning with them didn't work. Well your husband or wife drives work like well you can do is find a gay friend tanker to see your parents and they hassle you any more scared now. It's okay to be single single people's rights in the old days especially as ago. You had no right so toll. You had to get married. He didn't want to now. You got the right to be signal is. It's a life choice. I will support you in that. Just mama day nike nike nike. You should know how to take king to is remember one guy. We wanna ask mommy. Yes mommy esma. It's katie single. So darn be dombi convinced us white by them to go and find a career and choice in life which is not really what you are what you want to do and you can tell your parents. Some problems said if you're single. Yes you have. Single passes suffering if you get married. You won't have single person suffering anymore. What will you have married person suffering. Yeah and you think anita child if you haven't got a child you've got women without child suffering. If you get charge you'll have women with child suffered you ask any woman who's got a kid and i get very lucky having a kid drives you crazy if you really want someone to look after. Get a kick no dog. Dogs are great because you'd have to send them to school. They sleep all day and night to and they even got. Your property from. Thieves is a baby. do that no way anyway. Five moment it's okay. Oh my goodness this is so small writing in my recent performance assessment at work my boss listed my weaknesses as a voiding confrontational situations and not focus. Enough during meetings. So shout at your boss. Look with the i. What you mean. Boss not confrontational or did you just accept it which i think are in conflict with buddhism teachings to create harmony and practice right speech. I see many of them at chattan others for the sake of challenging and talk for the sake of toki regardless of the contents in order to gain merits and visibility as paste incorporating fine but any advice to wherever company start in order to thrive in both career adding put his practice In of the heart. There's a story of the bats night. Remember the bad snake story. So it's all. I'd say his as a buddhist. We don't need to bite. The bats nike became he took the five precepts became macoutes night it kept the five precepts and then people up houston through styles of dame and beats him and when he complained to his teacher. Low you can't keep five precepts in the business world you gotta fight for yourself you've gotta buy sometimes and that's when the teacher said look you don't need to bite you just need to his and then people run away needs to do to his alone so you hits from time to time you up to your boss okay. So it's okay to stand up for your so. I stood out for the kunis. Didn't give in did iodine. So i stand up. I'm assertive so be assertive so to speak. I've faced with a situation where which is very unfair to me. And i still can recognize what has happened on trying very hard to go but i still feel helpless. An angry allowed to make peace with this situation. I would seek gardens to approach this. well fit situations happened at work. If you can change it do something about if you can't you just have to let it go and learn from it so it's unfair. Yasser yourself why it happened. Could you have done any think if you could have done anything you learn from your mistakes and you grow and become a better person afterwards. So whatever happened at work is an opportunity to learn and grow not an opportunity to become sad and angry learning growing keep it positive and then you become better and better and better. Thank you for the wonderful teaching and not gen charles. Unshakeable peace reflection as meditation seems deepa. snowing we'll stop. is that true. He was stopped for you but not other people. So i snoras beware. We have your number. My inner chatter has been excessively active the whole day and i'm not having any piece i try being kind to it but it doesn't work also asking you to shut up and every ignoring about autism one. Should i do better the more you try to stop it. The worst it guess saw the comes appointment. Just say let go and just enjoy the chester. Sit down there and just say okay chatto. You can do whatever you like chat about anything so see what you could think about. Use reverse psychology because if you use it for psychology. No fun there. The chatto annoying you anymore. So golfing annoy somebody else. Leave you alone so just tell. That chatter is okay. You can chatter along as much as you want. Have no desire. Just make peace and be compassionate to your chattering mind. Chatree mind the top of my heart open to come on as much as you like. See if you can beat the guinness book of records of chattering and then you'll be fine. I like oddity works last question few more but every morning near death experience. Has anybody got any plans tonight. The near death experience moving towards the light in the presence of shining beings was told by these being time is not up had to return to earth chretien's tub. The light heaven shining beings are angels. What is put view or near death experience. We are the experts on it at experience. The reason where the experts believed on it many more times than the christians. Christians only die once we reincarnate reincarnate and reincarnate. What do they know whenever only live once. We are the experts on reincarnation. We've done it so many times. We've got the goods. Who are those shining beings. His not even a beings on christians. Sometimes you see maitre. Sometimes you see quanyin. Sometimes you see uncle george. An uncle george never went to church and his life then no angels otherwise. The buddha will be nine. Is andy real trick. The mind are real. If anyone wants to investigate that the best research was done by professor pam van lommel of the netherlands brilliant research which proved that these things are real people don knotts about kabul an experienced an nda today move towards the light or towards tunnel of darkness.

Be careful with you. have an in d. And you see people with hough and fall tiles of be politics is it means you property. Be drinking too much okay. So that's enough questions for this evening and when you go to sleep at night that's like a near death. Experience should become unconscious. But you'll be reincarnated tomorrow morning for another day of meditation jokes and opportunity to find peace and happiness. So before we go we will.

Enjoy your like jack of all of all trades and master of all trades usually. You're a jack of all master. I know that expression. Yeah right and You know. I saw your fertility specialists a hypnotherapist. Psychotherapist you've been. I mean you've been considered the best Therapist in in britain for. I think it was a few years back. But i've really enjoyed watching a lot of your videos. I really loved your tedtalk. I did my own recently as well done. Yeah and you know. I just find like alive the information you what i love about what you are. How you what you do. Is you take information. And you distill it down so anybody can really truly understand it in layman's terms. You make the complex easy to kind of understand. So i'm really happy to have you here and i'm cigarettes. You see that because that was my purpose. let's make therapy and the workings of the mind simple for people. Because you wanna fix it you have to understand it right and you know because right when i actually when i i watched your tedtalk i what i noticed right away which there was no like you. Don't mince words you use words like super super Super to perfect Yes lee don't use airy words you go right into it. You're like listen. There are forced things you know you need to know and do in order to be successful across the board and these are like you kind of even pretend to like fluff around anything so we i talk about those four things that you say are the who are up for things to be successful across the board because it really gets to the meat of the matter and i think You know without mincing words you kind of really kind of put it all into one one little package so please. What are the things you need to know about your mind in order to have phenomenal success across the well. It's very simple. The first thing you have to understand is that you mind. Job is not to make you happy. It doesn't care if you're happy sad fat or thin success just cares if you're alive you know we're put on the planet really to reproduce ourselves nicole's we have way more potential never from your minds perspective of i'm your mind. My job is to keep you alive against all odds for a limited number of years and so in order for me to keep you alive. I have to work out. What causes you pain or pleasure when you say things like. Oh my god that guy killed me that that client made me want to die was the end of the wa- michael dumps. This is driving me crazy. I'm dying onto my pay. What you might like my job is to keep you alive every time you say it will kill me if i get dumped. I'm dying on. The commute is jobe. The death of me. Your mind is Don't have a job is gonna kill you. Don't date of it's gonna kill. You don't commute. It's going to make you want to jump off a bridge to stay home. How about i give you a lovely ulcer. Lovely panic attacks chronic diarrhea. Anything that keeps you away from what you keep saying is going to kill you so the most important understand about your mind is that you mind. Job is to do what you tell you. Want secondly you're responding entirely to the pictures you make in your head and the words you say to yourself which used to change at any time. Thirdly the mind is hard wide in fact super code to run back toward his familiar while running away from what is on to that factor his another fat. You can make anything you like. The million paying on the toilet wasn't familiar once getting food in your mouth. Not your hair. Wasn't that familiar if you stick a lens in your eye every day. You didn't just wake up. let me do that. It took a little bit of practice to take your finger and ramat onto your eyeball and then squeeze that to get off again. Zev you remember these things about your mind. It does what he thinks she want it bases it own. You tell it the way you feel is out of the picture you make in your head in the word you say which your free to change a while. It's a fact that you're wide to run away from home me and back to the media you'd make anything you like familiar or unfamiliar for that matter and really it actually boils down to. How do you dialogue with you. World tour you want a great marriage. Go have some counseling. Learn these great communications that you want a great business landon hats to talk to your customer. Be great parent. Listen to some genius that had to your baby but no one says hey. Had you talked to look. I m just a big fat loser. Oh that's never gonna work out that driving me crazy. This kid is making me and say nine because well nomo babies for you so as long as you could lit really start to listen to your internal dialogue and then change it. That will change your entire life. It sounds simple but just because as simple that doesn't mean as powerful effective beyond belief because it really is so how does okay let me going to delve in a little bit deeper to that right because you know you can say something to yourself in a very shallow vapid way doesn't mean it's going to penetrate. I can say all day. oh. I think. I'm the smartest person in the world. But if i don't really don't believe it to be the case it it's like hollow words so does someone go from having a certain belief stat of who they are like you talk about an imprint. Of how they believe they are to be right and start to change what that imf imprint really is on a on a on a true level something. That's actually you know that that they actually truly believe at versus just spewing out random words. That's a great question is running. Do this everyday never. I'm getting bathroom. Readily i'm not guessing veteran bat dr quote little saying every day lice. Walk in the park in the sun is shining will when i wake up today and it was raining and i straight trading dope mess and i didn't really find that was real so you have to understand a few key things about the mind because your mind can be your best friend when you understand what runs it will things that roms mind is repetition knows as i went to the gym but at one hundred situps west my flat stomach. We understand go to the gym every day to three hundred six upset when you will have a flat. Sonic if you repeat a- technique and the mind is no new. Repeat something over and over again but secondly you have to understand a few things in mind only works in the present tense. You can't say next jiang. Have a beach body next year. I'm going to be a millionaire next year. I'm gonna find love any works in children go. Is it tomorrow today. is it yesterday now. Because they don't understand you got on a plane with three year old after five minutes. The mind works in the present tense and it really only response to us. They vade picture saying not thinking about chocolate. I don't think about chocolate and nothing about cadbury's chocolate course. You're thinking about chocolate. Said you got to use the words and even use words in front of his giving an example. Let's imagine you want to have a baby and you say things like i really wanna be pregnant. I love to be pregnant. I dream of being pregnant. That's all wrong festival. When you say i want i dream. I wish you're not saying i am i. Will i can dreaming wishing and hoping means that. I had nobody fully self so i just dream about it. Being pregnant is not what you weren't pregnant eight times and never have a baby. You need to say. I am super fertile. Coming pregnant now carrying has like baby to full term. I want love halloween. You want that four now students. We have the rest of your life. And then you say i'm attracting miss my soulmate. Someone who's got him up. I was collide on finding someone. Who's spunky an intelligent and loyal and kind and and everything. I love in him. He loves in me or her so you have to really turn the line with exciting. Wasn't must be exciting. They must be discredited. Must be relevant and they must be up to date citing. I want more money will have what is more money. You can get five dollars fine on the street. Does that mean you know. You must say i wanted to manifest. The rule must well by being incredibly successful monetize thing a gift taking it to mock it having the courage the competence the ability to sell something unique about me because the more descriptive. You make the more your mind goes. I knew what you were now. I know what you want on moving towards it but often what we want. We don't want i want to live with. It would kill me. Get i want success but i could never work seven days a week. And if i'm a success meyer relationship would go down the toilet on. I one love it would county to be dumb soon. Are going to be very clear marching one when you want it like say wanna be a speaker the do tech do like you and i wa- go bought only god if if i when bright red if i dried up if nobody wants would kill me you gotta keep your mind on war ci warm and wanted so much. The don't let the reasons why you don't want to creep it. I want to ski. Or if i fall over break my leg you see your mind is is like lays and moving forward expanding limited in. What if i had lavin. They left me one. If i had created as a terrible parent. You're actually saying you. I really want after all right. He was so what's the from. What i understand that it should be super detailed and specific you want and repetition are used to really start the process of leaving it right to actually believe in your bones and then you know you're saying something else that you just said you said saying about like up to date what is what do you mean by having things that you're saying that are up to date. It has to be relevant so will say not really wanna speak. I wanna do attached to ruin her. When i was five. I tried to read in class. I tried to say ridge. And i said rid gone. Everyone laughed at me. And i saw a am never gonna draw tinge into myself again when i was eleven. My dad left and he never came back to belief. Love her. If you let people in they leave you so often. We have to buy relevant by saying when i was a little kid. I was dependent on that side while. I'm not now when i was a kid to teach the ability to make me feel big. But they don't now. I was a kid somebody could crush my will go. Who's gonna listen to you. You ridiculous that will never work out so we allstone have blocking souls. The totally out day to say have to be relevant to you today. It's like if you listen to songs ago. Die if you need me. i can't live without you. That's complete rubbish. Had died of someone leads you in fact find someone a million times better. Once upon a time we would die without a try but now we can live on one hundred five. I wouldn't recommend it sounds renault. Relevant a lot of the things you say your school days of the best days of your not is all downhill once you get x. More chance of getting abducted by marsh when you're fifty than finding loves when you're thirty five year facility drops cliff these things on even true then not relevant and you have to have words relevant to us to see you want to have abated thirty seven. What is relevant is not to go willing to vote. These old excel honest sal by gay. I always a bit decrepit. you have to get. Hey i'm super fertile. I'm thirty seven a my exit twenty five years old because we know the upper body ages on its own title. If you fans if you're forty and you ran your heart and lungs will be twenty-five your knees and your skin. If you ran in the sun could be fifty five in your body. Ages is on his own tyner which is massively influenced by your thinking if you go onto oh to find love and too old to get pregnant. I can't remember it's my age of so tied. It's my age. You may that every soul you think is a blueprint your mind and body. Start to work on his real and say you have to say things like hey and see a healthy mean. Hey we are in covert am now. We have a choice on my go. There's a virus. i'm going to get it. I'm terrified of going out. I didn't touch anything. I go to a sanitizer my groceries or you could say well. I need to be careful not to be smart. But i have an incredible immune system my immune system is my line of i take vitamins. Eat right sleep right. eat a practice. Susan pleading washing my hands. I am gonna gray. I'm healthy. I'm not going to live in fear because when we live in fear it actually has a really bad effect on our immunity so relevant is about you know. Let's not make this about the past and national gave the about living in fear right so it's about what's don't don't let your past basically play your future and your and your president and your presence and so when you talk about familiar. How do you make the million unfamiliar or unfamiliar familiar and that stuff. What does that when you're referring to. Well that's a great question because most people don't even understand our wiring in that we need to go back to what we know. So let's imagine when you grow up. You had a very distant absent father who didn't pay much attention. Maybe diminished you. I wasn't really there and one mind wants us to recreate what we know and give it a happy ending so we tend to have co distant herons annoyingly very attracted to co distant people. Both men and women men are liked code critical women. I seem to reading bitch. you mean. women's just go for the bad boys no ones. You never call cheat. Why do i like them. Well because bat behaviors so familiar you recognize it and you want to recreate what you know. It changed the ending and really liked this too short to change the ending. We need to start changing the beginnings of finding a co distant guiding him somebody warren loving fresno morin loving in the beginning. Any you see. We can look at many people like me. No marilyn monroe amy winehouse princess diana. These women that had absent fathers went really the bad boys. Because that's a wiring. Let me recreate. What i know. You put six sugars in your coffee and heavy cream and drink or start your day with coca cola. You actually want what you have a few stick math in your arm or drink alcohol first thing in the morning. Even though it's really bad for you warn what is familiar. We see beauty live on a terrible diet because it's famiglia line. The house and watch game shows three generations of families on welfare for no other reason. It's familiar and we're so led to believe that will i can't change and that's just not true you can make anything unfamiliar. Yeah anything the tool. But then it's like. I guess there's two parts of this question to know what your habits and patterns are right. I think a lot of people lack the self awareness. They didn't to even know what that is to even be able to stop that behavior. That's familiar to or vice versa. Right so how do you improve somebody. Self-awareness enough like what's the first step. Even knowing what that pattern is or what that stop is in your life to even move infant and and like pursue happiness pursue success and get out of that. Bill your rut. Well it's a great time. 'cause january aka new year never eating sugar again going to that in every time going to be working out with like a maniac and i'm going to be working on my website and i'm not eating any sugar. We usually get halfway through. The i blown it now. So a might slow. Just lots of sugar so you need to take a look at your nephew have resolutions in goes you always failing warn is going on and i have many times at that sickness. Sugar and i've gone through three months and six months with most suga. Ever then you have you think a ruined it now and actually you have to decide to care. Why don't i just hang to eat sugar once a week. Awry megan to eat sugar on a weekend. 'cause that's an easy thing to stick to a now. I feel like a weight. And why didn't i say i work out four times a week and that latest be nothing more than skipping my living room carpet for five minutes while watching my favorite show. Because if you give yourself something impossible i going to have this. Rigid diet vegan. Nice fat sugar. No enjoying Too easy to break it. So it's much better to give yourself better. Goes in one of the goals you could have. If you want to make a scene you want to make love or success familia go should be to simply everyday. I am making success. Familia making success may right on your mirror writer on your phone so that it ping trust a right on your on your fridge and start to say i am making success familiar. I making successful herbison. I'm making succession applying myself but work and really pushing myself. A million said think of the wedding. I stopped repeated over and over again limited. Say it stated it gives it will want and file your mind to stop moving towards back to see a k. You keep saying you making success familiar on doing it and that statement says you have to take action now. What does that look like. So you have to decide to make a statement you see. I prefer to say statements of truth rather than affirmation of you decide to become a vegan vegan and committee being vegan. It's who i've chosen to be. You wouldn't go. Oh so hard not to eat bacon own. Look at that. Mcdonald's when you make a choice you say this is who i am. I am zeke. Denying the triathletes. I am committed hands on mob. I'm i have my business. I'm passionate about the. The actions will follow the words. So a lot of people do the action. I in the word second but it's much better to get the woods ready to start to say who you are every day to wake up and stay who. You are like no olympic Olympic athlete on training. But you know when. I just stay in bed at crispy cream donuts because that isn't congruent with who they are so find who you are stated and maclear. You are in the movie you repeated. You'll find it as easy for you to stay on that concept. While i am glad that was a great segue into what i wanted to ask you about. Which was disciplined. Right as you're talking about new year resolution's people repeating a mantra saying who they think they are who they want to be over and over again but you know i talked about this a lot from things i do on my podcast. Otherwise but discipline is the thing that kind of draw who that the through line. That kind of takes us there right. You have to be able to do that self-discipline which is very challenging right. So can you give us some way. Some steps some strategies to build flynn. You have to take action. And we have this misconception. I'm at home. And i'm waiting for motivation. Tacoma dole winningest demerge. Veta- turns up. I'm gonna go out and ron. I'm gonna design business. I'm going to stop dashing online. But i'm just waiting for the motivational. That's terrible mistake because motivation doesn't turn up until you take action now. We've all done this thing about. I didn't really want to clean out my closet. But you know i just do the social and that's something me i've done. I think we'll just do the underwear drawer and lana to have steadily. I'm into it. I didn't really want to go to the gym. I thought just ten minutes just ten minutes on the day. Moslem suddenly have done a whole allah. Jimmy wanted to have sex with my dogs away now. Might as well isn't it. I'm really into it now. Because that's what happens when you take action. You become motivated. That doesn't mean you should have sex one do so often we wait and wait and wait for motivation. Only should be taught in schools. Motivation follows action. action doesn't come off the motivations. If you don't want to work out. I just do five minutes. You don't want to work on the book your writing. We know i just do five minutes of spout checking. I don't want to work on my business. I just have a quick look at the fun. And the color of my. That's all again to do. If i just do that. then you'll find it. Works said discipline can be hard but discipline is something that happens and we don't understand because a whole modern education is going completely wrong and what what happens is that we just like dogs finding a bone embarrassing it. We are humans who are we respond to reward and all parents say to the kid if you tidy oh room you can have some candy. The do homework. You can go out to play into the way to be dismissed to think of a reward. I'm going to work on my emails to as men. I'm going to have this yummy. i'm saving as mara war. I'm gonna have this yummy coffee bar is. There is a reward. The protein bar. This for me because i don't eat candy but i find him. They are just like candy. So the all so i have to. I'm a great believer in reward and fee. That wouldn't be a class by could be a yummy coffee. He'll be calling in frantic going to have an hour an hour and ebay looking all this stuff. I didn't really warm but it gives me pleasure offer me. It's i go to show. I love this show. But the show is my rewards. Come in from work. And i'm gonna do an hour on my paper. They watch the show now. And i watched the show. It's like how i've heard this. I worked for this supposedly. I'm gonna watch my show. Have my dinner eight micron spa drink my coffee and later on my work and we do it. 'cause we got the reward. I saw human beings respond really well to reward and responding credibly well to delayed gratification and yet no one that we give up front. Have this do this go. There have whatever you want and we don't understand that if you don't work for the reward you never feel good is a bit like you know when you're dating someone and you just go at day of sex so great then you think john could it drag out just on the kissing first and then maybe a bit of making out maybe wait. It doesn't mean that you should but building the expectation makes everything so much better planning a lovely dinner. That i'm having that ben. I said oh you have to do for discipline really is to think about what you're awards are every day playing with your cat or your dog. Your kid watching a bit of tv looking at cat videos. It doesn't matter what it is having some nice food and just decide. These things will be my reward by the way. I laughed when you said the quest bar because i would use that as my reward to be any bar. That's why i was like it's fine that you say west bar and i was gonna say that so basically from just kind of pick up from what you said. So far was basically do the thing. You don't wanna do first and then get your reward as opposed to what people do they say. Oh i'll do that thing later on to get that thing for yet. They take the railroad. I yes so. I'll summarize that people who are very disciplined may leave clues all the time discipline. People have a couple of things that my fascinate you want. Is they do what they do not want to do to get to where they want to be. They also do it. I want to be fit. They hate running. They get up and they run. I love it. Guarded won't do this. I'm doing it. I you must be prepared to do. Want i and you'd reward is going to get up and running the snow. But when i come home we're going to have the most yummy cappuccino and some eggs and i'm going to have a nice hot shower and you make evidence you shower becomes a reward. Your path becomes a reward. At sam's say simple because it is a. Do you wanna do. Do it first delay gratification. Reward yourself after you've taken motivation and then craze yourself a lot because if he works via south thing getting praised phrases like muscles. As i'm such an idiot. I didn't work out. I'm such a loser. I didn't collect client the icon have breakfast alike. All client and africa gonna get. Well done you to grating. Look itchy code that client and you handled it so well and now your minds. Are lincoln mazing pleasure to do more to do i to taking action to rewarding yourself the action and the praising yourself now all of a sudden all the things you don't wanna do become exciting and compelling and actually very very rewarding too so it's a system and people are very discipline do it quite naturally doesn't match if it's unnatural it becomes natural every time just like pressing weights naturally do every week it becomes very natural. Yeah i like heard you talk about that one point a lot the praising yourself a lot what what is it. What's the at the one of the reasons behind a lot of that. I know that you say praising it because our natural instinct is to negative talk and just top top down towards herself and like that's the limiting belief and that's our doubt coming out all the time or a couple of things that praise first of all we know. We are hard wired to respond to praise. We know if you have a caterer even a pet. They respond to praise. Not will you say to your kid one you so fat and lazy not suddenly become thinner you today you a really good you help them in the kit shannon. I noticed you wait will that salad. I think yeah. I'm going to do that again. There is nothing on the planet that will raise your self esteem like praise. Praise makes you grow criticism. Weather's you and praise makes you grow. But we live in a world now where i said. I live on my own in an apartment. On the coach. I work from home. Who praises me. Not my mom not my dad. Not my husband didn't have one or two me by the way not my boss. 'cause i went to my now. Where do i get my trace from. And that's terribly important because while praise this yourselves is your own price. I could say. Oh my god. You're amazing. I love you love you love. You probably got an agenda when i say to myself. You're amazing i love. You is no agenda semi mind. Let's sit in said praise will boost your self esteem and we live in a world where we used to get crazed from my boss. We went to work the posted. Hey well don't we lived in tribes. Who lived in social groups. Who had a mom a dad. Grandmother non t. A teacher to go. Hey well done nowadays. We have kids doing homeschooling. They don't have an extended family. Maybe they just live with a single parent into that phrase muscle is withering and you gotta to make it grow. Imagine if you got your business you have a startup. you're working who's patting you on the back. You don't have a boss. You didn't have an assessment every week so you better be your boss. Knew better be. You're assessing you need to say. Well done this is amazing. Wow look it you you know. All parents will no the effectiveness as apparent is linked to how high self esteem of your challenges. Doesn't my time will getting broccoli. You give them you. Job is to give them high healthy self esteem but that never stall sent. Jews have to give it to your south. No i like that. I mean you wrote a book called enough right right and you have a whole program based around that concept which is about building self esteem and moving people self confidence. Are there other things in the program or in your book. You wanted to talk about other ways. People can help build their self esteem and start. Gaining confidence. yen is a couple of thing. These things again at a quite simple. The first thing is to improve yourself token. Imagine new iowa in best friend wouldn't say to your best friend or my god look at you. You look fat. that's terrible. That doesn't suit you. You've made a complete massive there. Oh that's awful. 'cause if you spent your best they'd be long gone. Sufficient will be our best friend and start your day begging. You're a great person. You're good at this. You got this. Be your own chilly. The praise yourself lot. The second thing is do not lead in destructive criticism that our people around will say horrible. Things is just making today at someone who said oh. That marissa is a scammer. She hasn't even gotten to qualifications which is very odd. Because i'm very qualified. But i get to choose that that ainhoa thank. Let's the sad unhappy person and so our choices do not letting you can't change. People are bitter. And meanwhile maybe you can over time that your choice is do not let it live. And like 'cause i just go with what you've got. Bright green hager will. I don't have hat greets. You do and i didn't like you. 'cause that's so entree wouldn't let it in because you didn't have bright green habit if you have if i said you but you'll say boring and you know area educated. You might let that in even though it is not true so the only person you can make you feel bad is you. Nobody can reject you unless you agree. Low it sounds a little hard to you have to accept that people can say what they're going to save you get to choose. I let this in on not let in july believe or go clearly. You don't know me. We know that share opinion. You're welcome to have it. Luckily i didn't agree. So not letting in destructive criticism is a game changer. Praise yourself be nice. just south. don't let in destructive criticism constructive. Hey you always and would mean a lot of you get here on time. Hey you know. Jim you do something you never quite completed. And that's a shame because you're very gifted if you could just finish it the way you start. Hey you know. I love you but every time i make dinner when you just leave your plates on the floor. I feel on support on cared about. That's okay because at saint good you change your behavior not who you saw. And that's another point to criticizing behavior. You're a great kid but you know why are you doing that. To emigrate person. Day had a bad day and i snap. But that's just a bad day so don't define yourself do that let you down. You're allowed to make a mistake but you are not allowed to be yourself up for make yourself ill because you made a mistake and then bring it back again. To how do you talk about uc. It's a free country you can be negative. I in the world. You can sign a loser. I'm an area rox brains on the size of the house. I'm just a train wreck. You can sail that. That's your choice. What you can't choose is what you do to your body when you do that and if you could look inside your body see what you do to your immune system when you talk why that you would never do that again. Ever you can choose to say nice things to be positive not negative to be purposeful instead of the opposite more from our guest but first a few words from our sponsor while guys.

Talked about praising yourself. Is there anything else that people can do. Some easy tool. I think especially now with everything going on is another thing that yeah there's something i love oviously i'm a therapist Method khuda t t we train therapy sola with one of the things. I found an island. All of this. My clients says many people awaiting my dad's dead. I'm still waiting to see a good us and my teacher said i'd never met anything and i'm still waiting for someone to go. Hey you're actually smart so next do it. Now take a minute and just think about what. I call the missing bit. What of the words you've always wanted to hear. I mean this is not rocket science. If you had an amazing mom an amazing dad an incredible teacher or grandmother or brother or sister who saw a remarkable you were. What do you think they would say you. We all come onto the world with a need and here on needs. I need to feel safe. I need to. I need to feel significant. I need to feel that you are proud of me in the eye mac. So now i want you to think of the would you always wanted to hear and say the right now. No one's listening. Just look at me. Like i'm your therapist and say i'm significant. I met unlovable. I'm proud of myself and then you go into the you. You are amazing. You're the smartest kid in the world. Look at you. You're so beautiful and lovable your great. How lucky am i to be your parents. You're the smartest kid in while. I'm so proud of you. That may seem a little strange but if you imagine you've got this emptiness weikle the missing the we have this emptiness waiting for someone to your great but if you say some unique could you could you out. That kind of made me so good advocate shoe. I can do that for years. And i'm also found someone younger tula richer smarter or maybe i can do that but i also weight and now he'll buy without other matt me that you can mean you need to the significant level in the when you do it yourself. You no longer depend on some house. That doesn't mean you don't want great people in the world the recognize who you odd but it means if you recognize it is easy for everyone else to recognize too so think again watered the word you'd love to hear that would fill you up with joy and then don't wait another second. Say now. i'm matter i'm lovable. I'm enough significant. I've gotta gift to share with a world. I have a talent that i can monetize. And say them and save them and say them and they will sink in if you had drollet. You'd put lotion on those lips. In the lotion would not rush them. Some of we have a bit like a dress so many to nourish that with words in the same way you might as go. Hey is that locational. Ganic is Matter i go to free on an airline. It's still nourishing chapped skin and words narrow shape too and the mind doesn't go. Hey who set there. I thought you wanted your dad to set your mind doesn't know and it doesn't care who says was only cares those words sink in and start to heal you from the inside accident give someone else a job of making you feel back to give yourself job will come along and enhance but your job is to me. You have women who say no. My husband doesn't make me feel sexy. No that's not his job. it's usual. I didn't feel orgasmic. We'll decide to feel gas me. Give everyone else these jobs of making hone and while it's a lovely thing to find someone completes this. You have to be able to say. Look i can do it and then it just makes life so much easier. Know there's been a bunch of research about something that we were just saying About the fact that your brain cannot decipher if something is actually imagination or real at sutras bright And this is exactly to the point that you're saying right like if you're saying to yourself. Your brain can't decipher if it's your mom. Stand or your or yourself. As long as getting that information it doesn't make a difference to view sound the smartest businesswomen in the world on the best athlete in the world. I'm the best mom in the world. Your mind will actually start to believe that true but you see so off. We don't know that we save you on the worst mom in the wild. I'm the worst cook in the water. Animus ineffective coach in the water in the same way. Your mind believes the ceo. Mine doesn't know or care if you tell you. South is right or wrong useful or useless hurtful or helpful it. Let sit in so you might as well tally. great things. As a therapist. I realized very early on with my clients because i knew various digestible ones. I said that to would become very suggested. I might as well say that all of them. He's actually not alive because human beings honest digestible and also to do it with kindness. So if i had someone who is widely abass. I've seen this is fascinating so suggest it will. You told yourself all these years. I can't leave food on my play. And i'm just bega and i can't lose weight and you've made that real that's amazing your power to give yourself that suggestion a now. Let's turn around and just say. I have a fantastic metabolic rate at the food. I really prefer eating healthy food. And if you say and say and say it it becomes real your words form. Your reality don't like your reality. Which many of us. Don't you need to really start changing your ones now. What you talk a little bit about rapid transformational therapy which program so how is that different than traditional therapy. That people see you do. I'm sorry little m surprised traditional therapy. I've always had a very inquisitive. Inquiring motto is look at stop and think when i was trained to be a therapist. Very eminent teacher told me something he said. The mind is very complicated and it takes a lifetime to understand the workings mind. Then you need to second life under Thinking that just come true. How could that be that. You given this brilliant mind that takes a lifetime to work out then. The second lifetime to apply seems unless you are a hindu going to have a second lifetime. And so i challenged that and and then i challenged the whole concept of therapy. Because there's no other nautilus has your pain and we'll discuss it years. No doctor says hey. Let's have a discussion about your broken leg. And when you feel up trust with me affixing a dentist says yeah. You've got an impacted wisdom tooth. We should have a conversation whether it be wednesday for clo on all that bacteria leaks into your heart and then when you trust me with start helpfully make you better than that's not to criticize therapists your by the way good people but it's a very strange model because it doesn't offer fast treatment when we go to air and pay. Can you make me back. We don't have a conversation about listen turnoff every week and so as the therapy should be the same as every album. Medicine should take away your pain as fast as possible. And whether you have a broken leg or account or a headache or whether you have a fear or i be a or an addiction you should be able to get rid of the pain really faster under think therapy together. I think they do so. I created the therapy. That was much faster. It was looking straight away for why an orlando therapists understand that. They wear three hats. The first job is to be a detective and detective is looking for clues. Oh here you are with them. Asthma dermatitis but you didn't have that until you're eleven. What would have gone on eleven. It would give a normal happy kid contact dermatitis or extreme as excellent. Why did you suddenly become obese. What happened to you the gave you this. Fear this phobia the start of the stamina because we have not bullied with any of those things. I've always bitten. My nails note can have any teeth until you're eighteen months that's not possible. I've never been good with attention. Rarely the day you were born look to you you for the blanket visited look at me. I'd like it that i can't leave food babies. You cannot make them eat too much. They just throw it all up. They but the hand a clamp nijus- together and turn away so we have a belief. I've always been this way. That's not true. I can't change. That's not true. So on t very quickly finds out why and how one way you go to be the way. You are not in years therapy in usually in the first session and then you go from being the detective. Being the dentist you'd take out will talk signature toxic beliefs limiting leafs blocking so and then you become a kolja and you start to why in and fi in a whole new belief system new the three things together. It's not accession. One will get to know to the session to talk about your background sessions. Three a bit more session for no. Let's find out why people come in with money beliefs. you know. i can't make money. I can't keep money icon. Seemed to get money and often. They'd gone back to a time in their life when they head that has a rich people have sold their soul to the devil. People awesome money. Agreed if you have more than anyone else like you keep it to yourself. You know we're wealthy because people just up and raba so you know one of my clients at her grandma these to come to the house and she'd fold up a five dollar bill and giving us a. Don't let your sisters no. They won't like you if they know you have money. And they haven't and that money gave her tremendous gil every week grandmother. Who loved would give her an only the money with a message. Nobody will like you. They know each soc- secret. She began to feel ashamed of all these five dollar bills in a shoe box under the bed now these years later she has this theory. If i'm successful nobody will like me. I've got a hide money. Pretend i've got any. I feel bad about having money now. That sa- blueprint so we uncovered that limiting belief and then we removed it. That was her grandmother's beneath the grandmother. Shouldn't have done that actually but she did. Nevertheless that wasn't her believe we removed it. And then we coded in and you believe you can have a huge amount of money and if you do good things with which when you have a huge amount of money by the way well you can do in. The end is good stuff when you are so march. You start to form like oprah winfrey you start from charities and children's schools in kenya like madonna having the school in malawi so having a lot of money isn't a bad thing when you have really a lot of money you actually end up doing really good things like we have an amazing business as it becomes more successful. With starting to scholarships and give people scholarships to train with us especially when looking at lack is there's not enough black man who therapist should be so particularly taking that we will give you free training to go in the community and help these young kids of seventeen. Who don't have a dad and don't have ambition and often looking at guy. I was talking to wycliffe. Sean couple of weeks goes on a cool. I was on about the song he did. This is my brothers from the inside and this is my brothers on the other side because when you come from where i commute you frank you sal rack and if you sound crack you go to jail you go to heaven and so when you have money you can do good things and so with her. It was a k. Find out this limiting belief. Because i didn't know why i feel like this. A guest just messed up. No something happened. Find it remove it. Replace it with something bad to sue auditees about interpreting what went on investigating what went on interpreting it interrupting installing something a million times better all in one session. That's why it's incredibly effective. That's all when you can get all of that in one session. I mean obviously we have so many came into that. I can't fly neronha. bite my nails. I'm scared birds. We do the only one session if somebody came in with depression or with anorexia bulimia than it would probably be three sessions so it doesn't always one session but for many things Infertility i mean the amount of women i come. In communist unexplained infertility will be expression unexplained means. everything's perfect. You see if i had blocked flavor got explained infertility when his unexplained it means. everything's gray. Your wounds pathak filleted newspaper for over his perfect husband's sperm path. Somehow you can't get pregnant. That's because people get back to these things. I thought i was pregnant once fifty and it was terrifying ahead to when i was seventeen i felt so guilty. My mom was so unhappy with baby at. I don't wanna be like her. I watched a show about someone giving birth and screaming the head of the. I never want to go through that. And so that's very simple. Go back and unpick the beliefs. Get rid of them. Replace with something better and you can always do that in one session. Because it's so simple but we don't do everything in one session many of the things. We were on request three. But they don't require ten fifteen or twenty ever What are that's a you're taking from. Different modalities that you because you used to be used to do Immunotherapy right so does. That was the crux of that. Like how does it work and it does. It depend on who. The practitioner is for hypnotherapy. We'll see on t. is hypnotherapy. I mean what i do is it is okay narrow p. and i recall hypnotherapy on steroids so beyond hypnotherapy a launch. Rtd is him. You not all of it. Certainly the recording is and the going back is so it does involve hypnotherapy. But it's just it's just more efficient so Hypnotherapy is great. I love hit every one of the things we do not not is when somebody goes back. Let's imagine you you can't resist cage. You'd love to resist cakes. And every as a no cakes and yet you're addicted to cakes and you go back and discover that your grandmother used to come over every saturday. May you cakes and you felt so loved to. Your mom was super busy. Run the weekend you baked together. Maybe she take you out a candy or maybe you ernie so. Your dad wants He took you out for candy. When you're a small child you you don't answer michael tagging you start to attack. Oh that makes me feel. That makes me feel good. No one said when on depressed. I need salary or lettuce. Depressed the cookies and milk. Macaroni cheese all the foods we had as an infant that made us feel good. You know in your baby and so on shops in that womb milky creamy staff. Everything's right with the world. You feel safety the love you feel significant and so we go for that sugary creamy milky staff. No one says. I need grilled trout on having a bad day than i need hot chocolate. Cappuccino must thin. So it's all of eating as an act of aggression. I wanna to be that little baby. So i won't the baby foods that made me feel good. I mean my generates. Whenever i'm depressed lead sushi but my daughter's generation would see that as a comfort food because that was a huge truth to go after sushi. My grandmother would have said you kidding. She would hope. I am custody since it's an act of regression. What are t t does is it uses regression to uncover. Why why do you do this. When did it happen. And it's so powerful because admitted declined goes back to the scene. Then have to go. But that's not me so give you an example. I went to the who'd being believe mix you'd had full t sessions of therapy. Still believe neck. And she's to hide food in eighteen seacrest and then in the session. She told me that her father left and it was a very bitter divorce but he would put chocolate bar through the letter box. Mother was not there. She worked during the day and she would be able to get this chocolate and she would hide it and she felt the chocolate is proof. He loves chocolate. Proves he remembered me. He didn't ceo mark because it was so bitter but he would can through the letterbox when you knew she was having. The mother wasn't in the app between three and she can have four mother came and six of he would leave it for and i will. These years later. Thing is when a husband leaves the house. She runs in the kitchen and ate solis chocolate. Because she's trying to feel love. And when i said to cater that sihanouk new way your dad knew how to love you and you five but thirty two and chocolate isn't gonna make you feel after your husband said. Hey you're i've got lots and lots of chocolate adua. I don't want that a christmas. I bought houston her. She's no. I want wanna her. She's on diamond or a nice pair of jeans. A jacket but chocolate chocolate. Because i'm not three so they have to then state in hypnosis that not me because now i had a boyfriend many years ago we had if i could. You wanna cook the. I won't lots of things when you believe me a cookie one. But then i mentioned his mother who oh you need a cookie so i so has. She wanted him to believe a cookie could solve any problem. And it's it's it's about a combination of identifying. Why you do it and the same time ending. You see people go. I knew i drink. But i still dream because i come from a family of irish alcohol. Other people try to ended without understanding. Why in you have to do both at the same time. Find out why and ended finding out. Why is great without the ending. You still do it ending it without finding at why is non enough when you both together is extraordinary and so power for end is permanent. Which is what everybody wants. Haven't changed. Because i can go. Oh gosh. I never knew that the thirty years. I've done that because of that declined to couldn't ask. The money was telling me that her pendulous doctors but they divorced in. The mother had more money than the father. The every saturday what you saw the desk asking for money. Tell him near the school coat. You need a school trip. You need this and we haven't got the money. Should you know. I say to my dad. I need this money. Suddenly he knew it was ally and he'd look at me so sad to me. Give me the money because you knew it. My mother was like and economic. Never ask the money again. Never asked anyone for sent. And that's exactly where she was. She didn't even bill her own clients because if that decision she made as a child i will never ask the money and so then you go. He made a decision. You were seven with a life exams of his seven-year-old that's fine. But you're not seven now and it's not about beaches saying look when you've been on the planet seven years which is nothing. You made a decision. Mitch made sense to seven year old. But he doesn't make sense to a thirty two year old. Now you can stop that and that that in itself is is amazingly powerful the patients you think not even feel bad about during. I just have to realize except day. Did you know if your computer go bunk. Kodak accident they'd have grade. It will often our minds have a bug and no one says. Hey what upgrade your whole mind which is slow down with this blog. By taking out the plug. Some it's about greeting your soul ju- beliefs your feelings and your potential any always wants now. I think that's great. Sounds to me though from everything that we've talked about so may things are from our childhood that becomes why we act the way we are as an adult is well. There's so many bugs or yes or the imprints come from you. And then what is the strategy with. We talk about what it is. You're therapy system. But so how do you create permanent from that. People tend to do something for a finite period of time. He adds very easy to figure out what it was at then to act differently but to make permanent change is what really. Yes and question. Because that's why you know the the session is. Let's find out why you do this. It's completely change it but the third part being the code making the personal recording for the client. That has that name when it. Hey suzy by the way kevin as you listen to the recording carry every time you listen to a new start to describe who they are you love saying no to candy throws you love refusing a cigarette into late jewett delight throws you empower you to go out with friends. Who can say that's not me on done with that. So you describe on the recruiting who they are it throws you to speak onstage at excite. Shoot to talk to people in la shoe to attract live and know that you're absolutely lovable. Every day becoming super firt you have great ape freemium eggs. Attracting grey day premium sperm. Whatever the client wants but the repetition and south talk and the recording. It's two things recruiting must be excited a must excite the imagination. Turn the mind on again be relevant person. And they must play every day for three weeks and again the relevance that would if you haven't genera recording every day in every way you getting better and better. It's not the same as having a recording. That says your name the describes your behavior is who you are way or go in. You'll becoming anonymous having my baby. I made myself a recording that later every day for mom and it said you know you just preach that baby after it so easy. The long muscles contract around muscle relaxed like a symphony. I found her birth extraordinarily and it was one of the best days that when we should be mommy was the best david. I took a picture of the day. I gave birth to her. Because i train my mind to be excited about but because this is easy you know. People who live on farms if birth much more easily than people. Who don't because they see it as a natural process or whatever you wan you have to make sure that your mind knows what you want knows why you want. It believes it's possible is three things are important. Why d- wanted. Do you believe it's possible to say that will never watch me. I'm not able to do that. Who's gonna listen who's gonna want me but when you klay the recording the an ever again your mind is all i know why you wanted. I know it's possible. And it clear that i'm going. To make it real you know. Roger bannister fifty. Seven was towed. Nobody could run a mile in under four minutes. It's just not possible. And he broke that down and he brought it in. He saw himself in his mind running a mile in just under four minutes. But what happened with him. Is any g do that same temporarily the next day. Forty other people did it. And now it's totally possible so when when you move towards your potential expands and expands again and again and again and when your mind moves to a new dimension it never ever advocates back again and it's about wiring into the mind the potential of you because everyone out has incredible potential. You know there's a great story. I loved in the uk of police in finding these kids in the street with a tennis ball is stop and search. They were stopping and searching gangs. They kept coming against this hop attendance when they wanna the kids said well if you take that tennis ball over mercedes and whack it. It disables locking system the most expensive car in the world. Now that's genius things courses. Kids should be working. Say these ron alike in that movie. Catch me if you can that guys now working for the fbi. Even if you're potential is to be some kind of genius it at breaking looks at should be recognized in fact. I recently read someone who said that there was an ad in the paper saying looking for an expert later to help make more security. Couldn't believe it was real. But i applied when i got here and i explained to them all the things i did to get into homes and i'm working making has because of my knowledge of breaking through locking systems so that's actually a good thing that we see some people is gifted everyone has something to offer the world and if you can believe in yourself. It expires you to expand basie when you're expanding like sam expanding forwards one of the things that makes me expand is prey new behemoths love. We're going to close rubbish. Wasn't actually very good at tore legitimate. How i wrote that. did you notice. Chapter three was full of spelling mistakes. Now i've done is i've contracted. Hey i love talk. Oh my sister. Gave me is five years old now. Youth contract to you have to expanding expanding expanding expanding when someone says you great digger. Oh you to has. You've just given it back. Say thank you so much that means so much to me that you love my book my kid my home my cooking you can lead to say by the way i love your skill but don't do immediately be all about expanding your potential Let in praised be nice to yourself to reject prison keep expanding forwards and if you keep focusing on the expansion you continent to the contraction going back to watch. The million focused on expanding to the familiar and it will become easy. That's great i like that. I wanna ask you were saying because it just goes dovetails this thing and then i can. We'll wrap this up but now we know what we do. nat way. What are some of the talk sic habits we do to. What are this toxic things that people do to become to be unsuccessful. To kinda keep themselves down. Are there Known any you know. Eighty percent of successes mindset which is just ordinary but he d percent say people have leaves beliefs. Well i didn't come from money. I didn't go to college. I didn't have a dad. My dad wasn't smart. My whole family have always worked in a factory. Who am i to go any further. I'm not sending enough. I'm not sure. I'm not beautiful enough. I'm not smart enough is the. I'm not enough not not enough interesting. Enough compelling enough attractive enough.

And she has down syndrome rupert friend from the homeland his wife aimee mullins olympic athlete has no lowell. Lynn says an incredible model for gap is got vitiligo all over her face. Oh yes yes yes. But she's beautiful and finally we're starting to look at people who are not perfect. Well yeah that's right you know no one says to kevin hart we too small to be a comedian. No one really did. Say to danny devito. You're too small. You're not attractive enough and we finally breaking through that mortar. Go to be six. Like i come from sweden to make in the water. I got to be thin with blue eyes and blonde hair. That's all changing. We're looking at people who flawed saying. Yeah i wanna be like you.

The Amazing Benefits of Breathing Properly How to Make Better Decisions

"Today on something you should know how to effectively stop robocalls for free. Then the amazing benefits of breathing the right way and most of US breathe all wall for instance, vast majority of people of reading too much, and you think well. How can grieving to much be a problem getting more oxygen into my body be opposite Atherton for actually inhibited circulation throughout our body. Also if you have old vhs tapes, I'll tell you what. What to do with them and do it soon. Plus how to make better decisions and understanding the difference between a good decision and a bad one, one of the very tough thing is what is a bad decision. It's routinely mistaken to be that you got a bad outcome. You could've made what was a great investment in stock and had dropped. That doesn't mean you made of decision all this today.

You just can't beat the value and convenience of a Bach subscription, so help a dog in need and your first boxes free. Go to Kong box dot com slash something. That's Kong box dot com slash something. Something, you should know fascinating Intel the world's. First and practical advice, you can use your life today. Something you should now it. Mike carruthers. Welcome to something you should know. It's hard for me to imagine anybody who likes getting robocalls. I met anyone who said Oh. Yeah I, love those when I get those calls. And even if you are on the, do not call list. You still probably get Robo calls. In fact, well over twenty percent of all phone calls in the US are robocalls. It is a real problem. robocalls are often used by scammers and complaints about them have been pouring into the Federal Trade Commission. So a few years ago, the Federal Trade Commission had a contest for whoever could come up with the technology to block robocalls and software engineer. Aaron Fos won the prize with his program Nomo. I interviewed him back some time ago, but this and I use it is terrific, and it is absolutely free for landlines I think there's a there's a small fee for mobile phones. I don't get that. Many Robo calls on my cellphone, but I was getting a lot of Robo calls on my landline and I. Don't get them anymore. The Federal Trade Commission awarded Aaron the Fifty Thousand Dollar Prize and no Morobo has been endorsed by many large news organizations according to their website, they have since. Since it started, they have stopped over one billion, six hundred million robocalls to sign up. Just go to Nomo, no, Mo Robo are Obio. No More Robo Dot Com and follow the directions, and that is something you should know. Okay now, stick with me here because you might think. They're going to talk about breathing. How exciting can that be while I'm telling you? It is actually really exciting. I think about it. You breathe all the time. So what if you're doing it wrong? Because you're probably are, and what could breathing better do for you and it turns out a lot. James, Nestor is a journalist who investigated how we breathed, and what he discovered is really fascinating. James's author of a book called breath the new science of law start. I James Welcome thanks so much for having me. So, what's the premise here? Why did you investigate breathing? What's to investigate what? What is the problem? So a free diver told me this years and years ago. Free divers are these people who have trained themselves to take a single breath of air, and down three hundred four hundred feet, no tanks, no anything no fence and come back to the surface, so she told me she said there are many ways to breathe. Our foods to eat, and just as we eat different foods to be able to allow our bodies to do different things, we can use breathing in the same way. We can use it to straighten scoliosis spines. That's true we can use it to help heal the symptoms of auto immune problems. That's true asthma snoring sleep apnea on and on, and on all sounded like pseudoscience to me, but was intrigued enough to spend a few years in lab, stocking the leaders in the field to find out what she told me so much of it was actually true, but what about just plain old every day here I am sitting here, talking to you and I'm breathing while we're talking kind of breathing. So, for instance, the vast majority of people are reading too much at least some time during the day, or for some people for about twenty five percent of the population all the time and you think well. How can breathing too much be a problem getting more oxygen into my body? The opposite is happening when we read too much. We're actually inhibiting circulation throughout our body. This is such. A contrarian concept took me months of digging into the science to understand it, but that is absolutely true. Okay so, what is proper, breathing, demonstrate or explain? How do we breathe better? So the best way to breathe that anyone can practice right now is to take a breath about five to six seconds. Slowly through the nose and exile that same amount of time when we do this, we increase our circulation. We greatly decreased the burden on the heart by sucking that blood into Arthur asa cavity when we inhale and letting that blood go out through the rest of our body when we exile, and we loud systems our body to enter state of coherence where everything works. Works at peak efficiency, and that's where you WANNA. Be So I realize. This isn't very realistic for people to walk around and try to breathe six five times a minute, but if he can do that at least part of the time, your body can be become better acclimated to breathe this way unconsciously the rest of the time, and that's really the key and so. Walk me through that again so I breathe in for six seconds. Five to six seconds do not stress about Oh. My God. It was a half a second off. That's not the point so breathing through my nose you. Put your hand over your heart. When you're doing this. Okay, we'll start exercising I'm not a breathing therapist, but I picked up a few tricks along the way so. Breathing to account of about one, two, three, four, five, and out, Juan, two, three, four five. When you breathe in, you're gonNA feel your heart rate slightly increase when you breathe out. You'RE GONNA. Feel your heart rate slightly decrease so breathing in is a sympathetic response. It stimulates US breathing out as a relaxation, para sympathetic response, so it relaxes us so this is how the body stays balanced and if ever. Ever you want to become more relaxed. You extend those exiles. If you want a little pump of energy, you extend those inhale so these are the dials that we have to take control of how our our heart is beating, and so, how so many of our other organs are functioning? Just by the ways in which we inhale, exhale and just to be clear. We're exhaling and inhaling through the nose. Always through the nose. Yes, I know a lot of people are going to say. I can't breathe through my nose of allergies of other problems. You gotta find a way a breathing through your nose and that's that's really the number one thing here. If the sink is clogged in your house, you find a way of cleaning it out as soon as possible. The nose has to be considered the same thing. What's so special I mean I can breathe through my mouth. So why do I do I I have another sink I. Can breathe through. Why do I need to Clayton? The drain out of my nose? Your. Your mouth is a secondary device in which you can breathe if something wrong happened to your nose, we developed two channels. For reason it increases our chances of survival, but breathing through the nose is going to filter. Air is going to heat air. It is gonNA humidifier air. It's going to condition that air, so when it enters our lungs enters at our bodies, tenure, and that air can be processed so much more efficiently that way. So, we're going to increase oxygenation with each breath about twenty percent, but just breathing through a nose were also going to be increasing our nitric oxide, which is this wondrous molecule which is now being used to treat people with severe problems, due to cove it, but we produce our own nitric oxide in our nasal cavities, so just by breathing through the nose. You can lower your blood pressure. You can increase your respiratory health and you can help expand your lungs and lung capacity. What else are we doing wrong? When we breathe, what? Different situations different times of the day WHOA. What else are we messing up that we could fix? So, if you go to gym, chances are you're going to see a lot of people on treadmills just huffing and puffing breathing hard as they can through their mouth, believing that they're getting more oxygen, they're getting more co two out of their bodies that this is a more efficient way breeding, but it is not so breathing this much. Just I mentioned before is actually going to decrease the circulation and. And you can see this for yourself by sitting down on a chair in huffing and puffing for about a minute, and you're gonNA. Feel some tingling in your fingers, and some tingling in your toes, and maybe you'll feel lightheaded. That's because you're getting less circulation to those areas, so it turns out that this happens not only when we're at a gym or exercising, but as mattocks people who suffer from. People who suffer from depression, other fear based disorders traditionally inhale and exhale far too much. They're breathing far too much in. If they're able to slow down there breathing and get their blood gases and a better balance, so many of these symptoms on have been showed to either decrease. The slightly or decrease on a on a massive level, and this is what psychiatrists and other scientists shown. When you're exercising. You commonly hear the phrase I'm out of breath. And what you do to compensate for being out of breath is to breathe more. For sure, and so I'm not saying that you know. Go out and jog and try to not breathe as long as possible. I'm saying that we need to condition our bodies to breathe along with our metabolic needs, which is almost always breathing less at least in our culture i. know this because I spent. Days and days in a Stanford study in which my nose was blocked for ten days, and I could only breathe through my mouth, and then I repeated that test in which I tried to only breathe through my nose, and we compare data sets, and was transformative, just breathing through the nose, and along the way I was exercising with a pulse ox, similar on my finger that showed me my my co two sets in my blood and I was shocked. Define that by breathing extremely slowly even though I felt extremely. Extremely out of breath I had plenty of oxygen in my blood ninety seven percent. What I'm wish spawning to is an increase of carbon dioxide. That's what triggers the need to breathe in by having a better balance of co two an Oh, to work and be able to metabolize oxygen so much better, and that's that's the key co two gets this really bad rap, because it's causing climate, change and acidity in the oceans, and all that's true, but our bodies can benefit from having a proper balance, Co two and. And that usually means for most people by having more co two in your body. And you get that by breathing less. You get that by breathing less because if I'm breathing right now. I'm off gassing tons more co two right, and if I were to calculate how much co two I had in my exile breath probably be down to four and a half for four percent, but by breathing slowly you're allowing that air to exile or slowly so you're able to balance that co two and to your lungs, and that's what we really want. Because it's CEO to that. As a as a massive bass, dilation properties throughout our bodies, it increases circulation. So it makes me wonder why like when people are sick and the come the first thing they do is strap an oxygen mask on the face to get more oxygen. These these are for sick people. These people do not have the proper gas exchange in their lungs, so they need oxygen for a healthy person who has blood sats of about ninety two to ninety three percent up to ninety, nine or one hundred percent. You don't need more oxygen. What you need is a proper balance of CO, two and oxygen, which is why. Why if at an airport or if you're walking down the street and you see an oxygen bar and they're selling this as you can get more oxygen into your body and increase your health, it is complete BS. What you're doing is you may be increasing your donation of your blood, one or two percent that oxygen has nowhere to go, unless you have a proper balance of co two, and this is something. Almost everybody gets wrong and we've known this for over one hundred years, but it's still not widely known or acknowledged. What about when you're sleeping? Though when you're not aware of how you're breathing, you're just breathing. Stay alive because you're off in dreamland, so It seems like that would be difficult to control. Well of course, of course, because most breathing is unconscious, but but if you think about breathing, and how poorly we're breathing during our sleep now, fifty percent of the population snores about a quarter of the population. is suffering from xfinity A- every night from sleep apnea. We're choking on ourselves. So severely are blow to is going down. You know into the eighties. That is completely bad news, so that has to be fixed C-PAP. Help they. They pump air into into into your lungs and allow you to xl those help, but what I've found is. Even, though we can't control the rate at which were breathing, we can control the pathway and I worked with a Stanford. Therapist who found that using a teeny piece of tape and putting that tape on your lips, I'm not talking about a fat strip of duct tape across her mouth at teeny piece of tape just to train your mouth shut at night can have a very powerful effect with snoring and I've had several people who have. have. Done this in found they no longer snore. I found that in the Stanford study as well when I had forced mouth breathing, I immediately started snoring and I immediately had sleep apnea the day I started breathing through my nose and taping my mouth that teeny piece of tape storing disappeared sleep apnea disappeared. So you're saying that tape your mouth shut. Why just use a teeny piece of tape? Then? Why not just tape your mouth shut? Because it's GonNa make people extremely paranoid to the the idea that their entire mouth is shut, and if they suddenly panic, the can't rip it off and that's where don't go on Youtube and look the stuff up because there's a bunch of Bozo's or using seven pieces of tape to tape their entire Josh. All you need. Is this teeny piece of tape so at any time in the night that you get paranoid or you freak out, you can just buy. Will by opening your lips a little bit. That tape comes off, so you want a very light tape. I know this seems totally crazy until like. Dr Mark for Henny who studied this stuff for decades and has seen correlations to direct correlation between adhd and mouth breathing the specially at night, and he has had a lot of success. Helping patients to tape their mouths at night and into improve their symptoms when you did it or when whatever the research says. How long do you have to tape it before you train yourself, so you don't have to tape it. This is not fun. People especially at the beginning, which is why I think a lot of people are going to turned off to it, but after I, heard this from Stanford therapist she she was a mouth breather mouth breathe at night snored. All of the above had been doing it for decades she was slated for surgery said Oh. I'm going to try to do this another way and she found that the more we use, the knows the more easily. It's going to be to breathe through the nose at response just like any other muscle, so it took her about a week to get used to it, and it took me about a week as well and it's not fun you wake up you're. You you feel like you're some hostage and some awful foreign country, but I've found just like anything else. You get used to it after a while and you know it's been a year and a half since I used it and I use it every night and I know that this sounds like quackery until you really dig into the science and the people who have studied this stuff and really seen some profound changes from it. I'm talking with James Nestor. He is a journalist and he's author of the book. Breath the new science of a lost art. I am happy to tell you that stroke of genius is back for season three. The IPO education. Foundation podcast is a show about intellectual property. But it's as far from a patent contract or a law textbook as you can get, it's really interesting. Each episode tells a different story in the world of intellectual property from the Harry. Potter copyrights to Syracuse University Trademarks. The series is filled with cool interviews with green entrepreneurs and forward thinking scientists and the business people who are genuinely interested in leaving something good behind. Plus each episode is only thirty minutes or less. It's a great listen, so subscribe and check it out on. E. F. Dot Org, or on Apple podcasts, or by searching stroke of genius wherever you get your podcasts. I want to tell you about another podcast. You might enjoy pin-drop from Ted. On pinterest rob host in filmmakers Salim Regime Walla journeys across the globe defined surprising stories and ideas from each place with local journalists and creators as your guides you'll we've through the streets of Bangkok with a motorcycle midwife time travel with dinosaurs behind a hardware store in New Jersey and meet a guy who dresses up as Luca door to protect citizens from traffic in Mexico City. Listen to pin drop wherever you get your podcasts. So James I remember several years ago, there was a big campaign about those bright strips, and everybody was using them and football players were using them and. I still see him at the store. I. Don't hear much about them anymore. What what is the science say? Yeah. Well, that's that's another problem. And there's this this diagnostic test you can do. It's called the cuddles maneuver so if you take your fingers right now, and he place them right on both sides of your nostrils any stretch those nostrils out. If you can breathe better that way, there's a good chance that there's something wrong with your nostrils, either they're too close, or they're too thin, so they collapsed inward. Every time you take a breath in, so we know that those breathe right strips, really really work and there there are surgical interventions that will do this for you so. So. You don't need to use those strips. The point is to get air freely into your body in out of it without any struggle, snoring is not natural. It's not good for us. Causes Neurological Disorders, some metabolic disorders have been associated with it sleep. APNEA is even worse choking on yourself and suffering that that fear and stress every night is so bad for us, and it causes from autoimmune diseased to heart conditions, so you have to find a way to be able to let your body naturally do what it's designed to do. That's easily take breath in easily. Get Out! On a practical. Day to day level of of the. Count of six in the count of six I mean you and I've been talking here for twenty minutes. You haven't done once. Maybe. You'll do it when we're. We're done. But how do you incorporate that into your day? So you, you incorporated into your day because think of how much time your your mouth shut, and you're stressing out and reading emails and doing other stuff, so I have timers which which worked for me to remind myself when I'm spending an hour and a half chugging through emails to breathe in a healthy way, and sometimes I put on a pulse ox similar just to watch my two levels, but again the idea here isn't to become a neurotic about this. It's to condition your body to be able to breathe. Automatically in creating habits can take. Three weeks four weeks even five weeks with breathing, it may've and take longer, but the benefits are are so many once you get the stuff down and I've seen people absolutely transformed by adopting just simple healthy breathing habits, and this has been confirmed in various. Studies. You. You started the conversation talking about this diver that goes down. And then comes back up. Don't they? Breathe through their mouths. Don't divers mouth breathe? They have to. Share so if you talk if you think about it, we take twenty five thousand breath a day. So for taking five hundred of those brass or even thousand of those breast to mouth. It's not GonNa make that much of a different so you. If you look at Steph. Curry playing basketball ride before he dunks, he goes. Takes his huge mouth breath that one breath at a twenty five thousand breasts is not gonNA be affecting him so divers do the same thing right before they die. They take a huge mouth breath, but if you see any of these people and I hung out with hundreds of them at this competition. When they're walking around for almost twenty four other hours of the day, they are nasal breathing, and this is something that they adamantly believing because they know the benefits of it, so don't worry about laughing. Don't worry about talking on occasion breathing to your mouth that way the point is that your habits should should circle around nasal breathing as often as possible, doesn't it make you wonder why so many of us are not breathing correctly I mean almost everybody's not breathing correctly. It seems that unless you train yourself to do it. The default is to do it incorrectly. Well yeah you know for a long time. This was considered a psychological problem like a mental hangup, and and that's what I thought. It was when I was first writing this book until I met some biological anthropologist who showed me how drastically the human skull has changed especially over the past four hundred years so for many of us, even if we want to breathe correctly especially at night, we cannot because of this morphological change that has occurred, and it's affected the vast majority of people on the planet right now and certainly affected me. And, what is this change in the skull? So, she took it out of us a little story here. She gave me a modern skull. She said look at its teeth, and his teeth were very crooked, just like mine were as as a kid, and then she showed me a skull that was five hundred years old in. It had perfectly straight teeth. Then she showed me a school that was five thousand years old, perfectly straight teeth, fifteen thousand years old straight teeth, fifty thousand years old straight. Straight teeth on back so right now humans are the only animals in the animal kingdom that have chronically crooked teeth. Ninety percent of US have crooked teeth, and we have crooked teeth, because our malice have grown so small when you have a mouth that so small, what happens to get teeth to grow into straight? You have to either extract him, or they're going to grow in crooked will what else is a problem with having a mouth too small? It's because your airway is too small as well so a smaller mouth, it's a smaller airway which means it's harder to get breath in and out, and this was a story I had no idea existed I'd always learn that evolution was this you know line forward of progress survival of the fittest that is not true evolution means. And right now humans have changed for the worse in regards to breathing. I wonder why. The main reason is industrial food, and it doesn't have to do so much with vitamins and minerals as many people think, but it is chewing stress if we don't chew a lot, those bones and those muscles in our face never quite grow right, and our mouths grow too small. So the starts once you're an adult hood. You know you're. You're pretty hoes. You stuck with what you have. You can change it. A bit and surgical interventions can definitely help, but this is especially important when you're an infant and when you're a kid, be chewing a lot. They've done tons of studies showing infants who were breastfed versus infants who were bottle fed. Breastfeeding requires a ton of stress in pushes the mouth in the face outward, and those infants will have a significantly decreased chance snoring having. Having other breathing problems because of that chewing stress early on in you look at bottle feeding now and most kids are bottle fed after six months, infants just up until three hundred four hundred years ago were breastfed at least two years sometimes much longer than that. Well when you think about it, it's kind of interesting that that everybody seems to have some sort of breathing problem or they're stuffed up because of their allergies or they snore or it. This seems to be a pretty pervasive problem. So when I first heard this completely blew my mind because I always understood that crooked teeth or genetic, but then this anthropologist said well. How were your parents? Steve like there were a lot better than mine than look at pictures of my grandparents. Their teeth were better than mine as well so. When, when you think about it, it's crooked teeth right now, and even on the institutes of Health website they say the causes of crooked teeth are genetic or caused by some problems associated with tumors. Food and chewing aren't mentioned anywhere. Even though we know, there's a researcher named Dr Robert Court Cheaney who studied this stuff for thirty years two hundred and fifty publications on this stuff pretty. Pretty obsessive and he found without a doubt. Chewing is directly correlated to mouse is and to breathing health, so it's this hidden story that's been in front of us the whole time that only a few researchers have been looking at so it was pretty thrilling to dig into that and understand why I've had so many problems in why so many other people have had similar problems? Well we all breathe and it's so amazing. How many of us have trouble breathing and it's great to get some advice on how to do it. Right James Nestor has been my guest. He's a journalist and author of the book. Breath the new science of a lost art. There's a link to his book in the show notes. Thanks for being here. James thanks so much Mike. It's been a pleasure.

You make decisions, and you just make them without giving a whole lot of thought to the process of how you make them, and in most cases, it probably doesn't matter much, but when it comes to those big decisions in life. How you make them can matter a lot. Ralph key knows a lot about this. He's been studying and teaching decision, making at Duke University and the University of southern. California and he is author of the Book Give Yourself, a nudge, helping smart people make smarter personal and business decisions. He's here to discuss how we can all make better decisions as we travel through. I Ralph, Hello! It's a pleasure to be here. My. Guess is that people think they're pretty good at making decisions. After, all the decisions I've made have got me this far in life, so I must do it. Okay, and and I imagine most people think that, so they don't give a lot of thought to the process. They go through to make those decisions. You're right. People don't think about their decision. Making and I think one of the reasons is we all learned it from a very early age and picked up habits over time. In fact learned is the wrong word. We just picked up a bunch of habits, and that's what we do, so it's not something we ever thought about much and yet those decisions we make are the things that shape our life that that determine which road in life we take. One of the things about decisions is it's the only purposeful way that you can influence anything in your life. Everything else just happens to you. So, your decisions represents the power that you have to influence the quality of your life. And a metaphor that I use for that is the one you all. Know is person walking down a path, and when they come to forks on that path, they can choose to go either way, and that's a decision. In imagine if you were on your life pass. And you start walking. And there are no forks. So, you keep walking a little further, and there are no forks. All you can do is continue on that path. And then all of a sudden your path and That would be a phenomenally disappointing life I think. You really want those decisions there because again. That's the only way you can influence your life purposefully. And so do people when they make decisions typically. Follow a similar path or when they do make decisions, or does everybody Kinda do it their own way? Well. Everybody's a little bit distinctive, but I think the standard way that happens. Is People don't like decisions. If, one loses their place of employment, one has a problem. What should I do about that? and. if one gets sick. One has a problem. What should I do? And so those are problems and people don't want him and the way people we deal with them typically is the first stage is well. I'd like to figure out how I didn't get rid of this problem. And the sooner the better, so they start thinking about an alternative that might work and they come up with one, and then they think well. Is that good enough and if it's good enough? That likely gets implemented. There isn't the thinking that goes. Is there a better alternative or another one and plus thinking of alternatives I? is a backwards way to make decisions because you're. It's reactive. The problem occurred. You have to address it, and it's backwards because you're choosing alternatives before you really carefully understand all that you want to achieve. and. How can you possibly? Create good alternatives! If you don't know what you want those alternatives to achieve. Well I I understand that so you're basically you're saying that. If for example, you want to get a job before you start choosing which company to go work for you, I have to figure out what it is you want from. That job is at a higher salary. Is it a better position and only when you know that then do you make a decision about where to work? But today I think especially people here, the idea of go with your gut. Just follow your gut. Your Gut will tell you your gut will tell you what to do I. Imagine you probably don't think that's a really great idea, but that that's what a lot of people do. Yes they do and. That's a standard thing that said I think it does mean some different things to different people. But for an important decision. I would rather get information. That was relevant. To it. Create a set of good alternatives for it. And give some thought to the better when they're and basically educate myself, and then I might say well based on all my education and knowledge about this decision. It's suggests that I choose alternative. A. So, if you have a decision to make, and yet have all your objectives, and and you I, guess you prioritize them to some degree. You figure out which are the important ones in which art. I mean this sounds a little exhausting. So I guess this is really just for big big decisions. So exhausting if you learn some of these habits, I mean there are kind of. Three key things that really nudge you to make better decisions one. What do you hope to achieve by making the decision to? What are some good alternatives? And three. Are there any better decisions that I can face and I? Call those decision opportunities. And it's not. Difficult to learn how to do these, and they can become very natural. I could give us a simple example. I think everyone would understand why. Identifying one objective would have avoided a very bad decision. It's short, but suppose somebody important is coming to your town or city. and they worked for the company. You work for, and they'd like to have dinner with you, so you arrange a dinner at a close place to where they're staying. You think that's important has excellent food and kind of. local flavor, so you choose a restaurant? They come and you go there. And it's a terrible evening. And the reason was. It was too noisy. And you wanted to talk to them and they wanted to talk to you. had. You just thought about what would I like to achieve by having this dinner? And you thought of that one additional objective. I'd like to have a good conversation. There's no way you would have chosen that restaurant, so that isn't really sophisticated, thinking or anything. It's just stopping and thinking for a moment. And, that's a nudge that in this case would have avoided a very poor decision, and it's not the biggest decision of life, but it was pretty relevant, if this person was relevant, so I like that example, and although I can't think of a specific time in my life I know I've had that feeling of picking the wrong restaurant for something like that or if I widen I, think about the noise. Why didn't I I? Think everybody's done that and you're right? Yeah, if you've thought about it ahead of time. You wouldn't have pick that restaurant, but you didn't think to think about it. That's right and it should be. Natural for something like that. You'RE GONNA. Spend maybe two and a half hours of your. term life with somebody. That's important that you'd like to know and so think maybe five minutes about it. Is Not unreasonable. It can really enhance the quality of two and a half hours for each of you know you don't WanNa. Be Slave to those types of ideas, but. That's a decision. I consider worthy of thought. Not Anxiety and everything, but just a little bit of thought can make a big difference. One of the one of the traps. I think people fall into when they're making a decision and I know I've done this to where you're making a decision, and you think you're GonNa, go through the process of looking at alternatives, and which which is the better way to go when really you've pretty much decided, which is the better way to go? You're not real. You're going through the motions of looking at alternatives, but I think in in general. You're looking for ways to justify the decision you've already made. Yeah, I think there are many cases where that happens. One of the things that I say too. Many people is once. You've created one alternative especially when it's been a little difficult. then. You've got one so spend a little more time to create two or three more, and if you create three more, so yeah four, probably the chance that first one is best. Is No more than half. And again that can be a big big. nudge to make a better decision 'cause if you create a better alternative than those currently available. You're going to make a better decision based on that one insight, and then you. You get more skilled at doing that and. You Challenge yourself to create alternatives. There's a bunch of different techniques to stimulate your thought process that will help you create those alternatives for example. You what you do is you use each of your objectives for the decision to generate alternatives, the standard advice for creating alternatives that are innovative and good is. Think outside the box. You've heard it, everyone has. And I agree with the spirit of that, but outside the boxes everywhere else, and there's no guidance for where to look for alternatives, so you're not very effective. Well. Once. You've laid out all your objectives for the decision. The only alternatives you care about are those that are going to contribute to that set of objectives, so those basically characterize. The region where you should be thinking I call that a much larger right sized box correct size box. And You can create alternatives to dress one objective well, and then you kind of combine some of those and do thinking to. Me Two or three of the objectives and on. Important problems, there are more than a few. And so. That's how you create. The alternatives, and then once you've got a rich set of alternatives. It's pretty easy to get rid of the bad ones. It's easier to get rid of bad ones than it is to choose the best. Something! That I heard many years ago that I. That has always stuck with me about decisions. Is when you make a decision, and and you know I'm thinking. If for example you know what color to paint the wall, or what kind of carpet to buy or a something along those lines and. It's not so much the decision as it is your commitment to the one you make that that you can't just keep fretting about Oh. Maybe we should have gotten gone with a little lighter color and all I don't know that you make a decision. Commit to it and move on. Well? I think you're right and your comment that it might not matter too much is I think the same concept? I was saying if you get rid of the poor alternatives. Then, the ones that remain are those where the differences don't matter too much. And that you think you didn't have the perfect wall coloring. Whatever that is probably very few of us, have the perfect. Wall covering color. But we have a pretty good one, and that's good enough for that decision, because you don't want to spend all your life making decisions. Because life is kind of the enjoyment and experience and the contributions. You make because at the time you have. And the position you're in because of the decisions you did make. You know what's interesting is that that everyone can think of bad decisions they have made. Because you can't get very far in life without making some bad decisions, and yet what you said at the beginning. People think they're better decision makers than eighty five percent of the population, so there's kind of a disconnect there that if you're a bad decision maker and you have made a lot of bad decisions. That probably you could have done a better job at. Why do you think you're so good at it? One of the very tough things is what is a bad decision. and. It's routinely. mistaken to be that you got a bad outcome. You could made what was a great investment in a stock. You checked everything you could. You checked with many people. It was a great thing to do. You bought the stock and it dropped. That doesn't mean you made a poor decision. Because you use the best information you may be said you on before you made it. There's a one percent chance the stock drops, and if it drops, I will lose twenty percent of my funds. There's a ninety nine percent chance it will go up. and. Let's say you make twenty percents again the same amount that would be a great decision. Most people would say if that's really the way it was. That would I would take that decision. And the fact that you lost was just. Unlucky. You didn't control that all decisions that you make. Have a chance. For something to go wrong and pretty wrong. If you! In normal situations decided to go to someone's wedding. Who you would known forever and you were driving fifty miles. That you could be in a car crash, but that wouldn't mean. It was a real poor decision to go to the wedding. Let's say you were driving carefully and it just happened. It was a freak accident. So. That's one of the problems with. People thinking. Where have they made a very very poor decision? Because it's, it's the quality of the decision before you know all the consequences. that. Is Relevant to whether it was a poor decision or not. Well, that's interesting about bad decisions because. I? Think we do tie it to the outcome or we tie it to the. We tie our bad decision. To the road, not taken. You know the the girl that got away and it G. if we'd only married her, or you know something like well, you never know what would have happened. It could have turned out to be horrible, but but we have a tendency to to make that the the thing we didn't do. Look so much better because it never happened. Yes I think think that happens, and it's just this distinction between a good decision. And a good outcome of the decision are different, but that's not well understood, and it's very natural to. When something bad happens to sail, boy I really messed that up and made a poor decision. But it might not have been a poor decision any decision you make just about. Can have. Poor outcome you could go to. A top school. You've got all those skills to be there and something happened that it's just a disaster. Not a poor decision, it's unfortunate. and. That's the way decision making is. There's no guarantees on it. And also not choosing an alternative is of course making a decision to. Well, it's interesting when you think about it that the decisions you make are the things that steer your life, so it's important to pay attention to the process. You use to make them. Yes and again if you go back to the very. Key, point, the only way to influence anything is by your decisions that includes the decision to do. Nothing should suggest to people. I would like to make some of these decisions a little more carefully, because that's the way I can improve my life, and it's not selfish. I should say. What you want to improve your life could be in.
