"Last weekend. I was teaching a private open water class to a woman who wanted to get her confined water. Training done before heading out to the south pacific to work and to complete are open water dies. That's pretty nice. Don't you think well as we were finishing up our classroom work. We reviewed the logistics for our pool session. The next day. I pulled up the map on my computer with the street view to show her where to enter the building and the location of the parking and as we were closing out she said just give her the address. She'll let the gps in her phone. Get into the pool. Pretty simple and she arrived on time the next day at the pool. Ready for our session. Now during our pool sessions we have our students where computer on the wrist. I like to let them get used to the feel and also looking at the computer while underwater and as i was explaining that we liked to wear the computer on our right wrist with our compass on the left wrist. She asked if there was an underwater. Gps available instead of a compass. That's a reasonable question. Right now i would say not really. I know that garment makes a dive. Computer the descent mark one that has surfaced. Gps to mark your entry and exit points but the glamour on their website states. Gps tracking and satellite communication does not work underwater technology however continues to be amazing. I did come across a company. Navigate out northridge california that is creating a solution of sorts it involves a gps gateway which is a floating radio antenna with a suspended array below and that communicate with a wrist mounted unit it uses an acoustic signals that determines the bearing and range from the gps gateway and then plot your position on the dive site. It's an interesting piece of technology and still evolving. The website for naveh made says it will be available this year. The cost of the wrist unit will be fifteen hundred dollars while the gps gateway will also come in at fifteen hundred dollars. There was some reference that they would be making the gps gateway available to boat operators. So it would appear that we are at the cusp of some new and exciting ways to navigate during our diving but as we know the proliferation adoption and success could take awhile the wrist. Mount unit is only good. If you have the gps gateway available it could take awhile until there are enough of these units out there to make to make it worthwhile purchasing a fifteen hundred dollar unit. You could end up with the gadget on your arm. That isn't going to give you what you want. So that's where we come to the tried and true underwater navigator. We all start are underwater navigation. Training deal i open water diver course when we are introduced to the compass and how to use it for some simple navigation on the surface and underwater. But if most people are like me. I wasn't really ready to navigate effectively on a dive. I needed more experience and training. We get this during our advanced open water training when we do more navigation training and conduct a navigation dive to extend our knowledge we learn about kick cycles how to measure distance and extend our skills with a compass for most people. This is pretty much the extent of their navigation training. So you'll have to make sure that you practice use your compass during a dive to set a course and see if you can return to the boat us time to judge your distance and kick cycles learned to trust your compass and you'll find your underwater navigation skills improved. You can also continue your navigation training and education with the water navigation. Specialty course for the patty specialty. You go into more detail about measuring distance how to use natural navigation techniques and more use of the compass including underwater patterns after completing your knowledge development. Which can be done using the patio electronic learning platform. You'll conduct three open. Water dives to build your skills and proficiency and underwater navigation having that confidence and competence in using your compass and finding your way underwater reduces your stress and anxiety and make sure diving more relaxed and fun right now. We really aren't able to avail ourselves of underwater. Gps it sounds like there might be solutions in the future and as we have come to appreciate technology advances. We'll be standing by for now however you can't go wrong in developing your skills than the tried and true underwater navigation techniques and equipment

And now she actually has to hire more people process all the orders that she's gotten since Sunday. Yeah, I'm glad Tom Hanks got involved. So he picked foggy Pine books and Boone, North Carolina. Even Tom Hanks chimed in. I'm Hank's got involved with So you're saying that was an ad in the Super Bowl? No, No, it was the foggy pine books was a something he just talked about in his show because he came on after the Super Bowl. I see. Okay, okay. And I guess, um Business went through the roof. But, man that Tom Hanks is busy. I want Tom Hanks is agent. Whoever is Tom Hanks. He's in on everything, and he seems like the nicest guy ever. Yeah, right. You know, he really He really It seems just so nice and he's entertaining and he got covert and his wife got covert. Remember there were there were early to the covert party.

Whatever money I could look this up, Mom, Maybe it'll take some time. But I wonder how many dollars Tom Hanks is responsible for in box office. It's got all that's a great question. You know, it's got to be Tens of billions. I mean, just for toy Story. It's in the bill in the billions, multi billions Oh, man. Oh, man, it's gotta be a lot of dope lot of dough. All right, anyway, So we're talking about the film Our earthquake 50 years ago Today, 50 years his little tiny piece of the 6.6 magnitude earthquake was a major wake up call for Southern California. The shaking was felt as far away as Las Vegas. The old Van Norton damn nearly burst. You're going to hear from two nurses who were trapped inside the rubble of the collapsed hospital. Much of the chaos that day was captured in this documentary check. You know, Mark, you know the energy like You know, the energy that takes it takes to move. You know, soil like, for instance, if you have a jackhammer, and you're hammering the You know some pavement, you're breaking of pavement to try to get it out of there. You could probably feel it from like 20 or 30 ft. Awake and feel the ground shaking. Oh, yeah, Definitely people. People felt this Silmara earthquake in Los Vegas. Imagine the tremendous amount of energy that comes along with the earthquake like that. Yeah, that's you know, just because you mentioned it. It's about that energy release and where it takes place. How far below the surface and also the way it the rock is a slip fault. Let's say I mean, in other words, they very WeII the energy actually is generated, whether it's a slip fault or that all these different terms. I mean, whether the rocks were going sideways or going vertically on. I just can't think about the vertical one is called in right now, but I slipped plate or something like that. Yeah, no one's gonna slip anyway. The point is, though, too much to your point that affects not only the amount of energy but the way the energy is released. All these things that we learn now, but earthquakes just in the last 20 years. Yeah, I don't like those in earthquakes when they when they do the death total, and three or four guys died of an earthquake. I don't like attributing the earthquake to those deaths because I understand that the earthquake may have caused it, but it was also, you know, 73 years of putting butter on everything that also might have an effect. Yeah, you know. Yeah, well, oftentimes they describe it to the very last thing that shoved the guy over the edge. I get it. I get it. I get it. But, you know, a buddy of mine, Jefe Warnicke used to live up in the studio city up in the hills. And his neighbor across the street was 92 years old, and he just came back from Cedars Sinai. Right on the on the Northridge quake. And North Korea, where Northridge quake happens, and my buddy goes outside his house, and he doesn't see his neighbor's home. It was up on stilts, and it fell down the hill. He's 92 just survived cancer and a heart attack and came home the night before. That earthquake and his whole house went down into like, you know, like we're Art's deli is right. Just tumbled down the hill. They found him alive. He made it. Lived like another three or four years. Wow, that's a great story. It's a great story, but You can't take that guy to the track. That guy just spent whatever lucky had his lock up, man. You're born with a certain amount of luck. And that guy just, you know, opened up his wallet and emptied it out. But that is, uh, that is crazy or a little more here with the earthquake. It's crazy. 50 years can't believe 50 years 65 people were killed. Half a billion dollars in damage. The 6.6 magnitude earthquake. Wow! Only 65. People were killed in that quake man That's unbelievable. Ripped along a 12 mile stretch of the San Fernando fault, fired everywhere at all of you.

"Coronavirus questions with the one and only Dr Kelly victory. Let's get to his many calls is we Can everyone holding I want to try to get to you before we run out of time. So let's go to Raina in Northridge. You're on with Dr Kelly victory. For high doctor, This is Vienna. My husband passed away last year on by my daughter lives in New York, and she hasn't come down to Away because of the cold dead and I had made it. I have taken a trip to thinking of taking a kid toe quota Vallarta so weekend. You know, huh? Take a break and you know, mental for mental house and all of that So on both of us leave, I know buyout sounds and also Motive was our in house in a good health condition. She's 30 to 1 57 and I looked up the point put away Artur cases, and it's the highest was 66,000. And now it's only like 1500. I just want to get your thoughts on, you know of it to take the trip or not. It's been very difficult for both of us without you know, my husband, you know, especially during the holiday. Well again, and this is without rendering on official medical advice. All I can tell people is that I think you need to assess your overall risk factors. And it sounds like from the very little you said that you and your daughter. Both are in good health. You certainly are both in a lower risk category based on your age on if you don't have any underlying health conditions. I am not one bit concerned personally about going to an area that has quote a lot of cases. Because these cases as we know the vast majority of the people who are testing positive are not symptomatic and the chances that they have virus that they can even spread to somebody else or virus that is capable of causing illness is relatively low because we are testing people who have no symptoms asymptomatic people. People are walking around without a fever, cough or running nose. And those things are very unlikely to spread the illness. And furthermore, if you were to get it there, chances are very low that you would have a bad go of it. So I am a huge supporter of people doing the things that they want to do in their lives. And if this trip is important, and it sounds like it is sounds like you've been through a very stressful Recent time. Then I would really support the idea of you going and taking reasonable precautions. You should always wash your hands after you sneeze or cough. You should always avoid people who are actively ill. You should always do those sorts of things. This is nothing new Just because we have covert 19 around. Thanks so

Genein Letford: Creating Financial Freedom from the Inside Out
"Welcome. Janin's nice guys on business podcasts. Thank you for having me. I love having you here and I've had like three or four cups of coffee this morning. So I'm going to go at a million miles thousand hours so you just stop me at any point where you feel like he doug can you just slow down a little bit. Because I'm not quite with you right now. I got so. I got so excited as I started doing doing some research about you best publishing and sent you over to me as a guest a potential and Of course I welcome you immediately once I saw that. Not only were you a podcast host. I but you have live events you live not too far from me and And all of and not only that but you have a great book too but all of these things it's like. Can you be creative creative. And can you be right. Brain actually still make money. So can I ask you that question right out of the gate before even. Tell me your background sure. Well actually. I'm on a mission one of redefining that so a lot of us think that you either left brain right brain but the research is showing your both brings creativity actually happens in both hemispheres. And it's not really a the artistic Over here in the logical parts over on this side even though like math in reading do probably happen on one side but the creativity part not necessarily the artistic did creativity part innovation producing new ideas happens in both sides. So I'm really trying to clear up that misconception that you may be a bit more artistic but you're actually whole brain. Innovative thinkers we all are. Well I I do I do have Let's say fast lane thoughts of wow wouldn't it be great and I try to keep everything in a budget. That's definitely my left brain coming even through because I know that because I tend to gravitate more towards creative and big picture thinking and I taught and I think in pictures. I don't think in words you know I. I know that my girlfriend commonly says to me things like you know. Do you remember exactly what I said or do you remember what they said. And I said I don't remember what they said but remember the feeling gave me you know it's like okay. That's totally like a right brained or that's more of the creative world. But I understand that I have that not issue but I had those characteristics so I have the kind of push myself into that left rain thinking. Let's call it of I got him. I got to create a budget. I have to create a task list. If I don't do that. I'm not going to be any good. So maybe share a little bit of your background to to talk to our community about what you've gone through to understand and really just a basically really capitalize on the concept of while creatives can actually make money sure. I am an educator by trade have my degree in psychology from Ucla Masters Ashes of education from seaside Kost Northridge in southern California and Certification and financial coaching. So I just and I taught you the Elementary School and music artistic pro program and I also taught at seaside at the lecture of how to integrate creative arts so a lot of different kind of being smushed together gave me great foundation to to do what I'm doing now basically And light like a lot of your your guest. I got got hit with the whole student. Loan wave of like what happened happened and as a thirty year old I found myself one hundred thousand dollars worth of debt on a teacher salary three and not knowing what went wrong I got my education. I played by the rules but yet I was still financially inept and just struggling. So that was the impetus of what what you see today. And from debt to destiny. What is the book that I wrote? So when did you realize that not only was this Something that you had as your I guess as your I don't WanNa say it's a curse at all but you know getting into one hundred thousand dollars. A desert certainly is never an easy for position for anybody to ever feel like they can climb out of so. When was it that you realized or maybe it was on the other side that after you got through it you realize that? Hey I actually have a skill here or a gift in helping other people people do what I've just done which is just kind of rise up out of the out of the the weight of all of this debt. Sure I realized what my my my tat tagline is your creative health affects your financial wells and I got the intuition in a hot moment that way first of all. I'm lacking financial literacy. So that had to be. I had to fix that right away. And that's just you know. Learning how finances work money. How credit cards work? How interesting work for you or against you so once I I got that down I started to look within me and I call them now? I have this program called The destiny Diane Diamond and just how I had these diamonds of creative gifts inside of me that I can actually refrain.

As I looked at tutoring I love photography I love storytelling through video and pictures. So instead of me just doing that for fun. I started to get odd jobs and brought in more income that that way I did know I two right so I just started writing and then I got a just out of nowhere. Just a book deal came in so that brought in extra money and I just really just you see how reframed the things that I love to do and they ended up bringing in ended up being multiple streams of income.

Struggles along the way and life in general in the pot Gill Beta from comcast ventures on the pod Gill shares what. He thinks the key to all his successes and then we go deep on his pretty awesome journey. Let's get into it Gil. Thanks so much for being on the Alex. Thanks invited me. Looks like we're GonNa have a good time today. Yeah I mean we've already been bantering going back and forth here. It's always like we have such a conversation. I'm like oh now I don't see anything more. Let me let me hit the red button. I wrote to say oh like we said before. And that's usually how it goes. The listeners. Love that so comcast ventures genesis ventures. We'll get into all your venture capital stuff. You got going on today. But like when I ever venture capitalist I haven't met with one and yet that said Oh I knew I wanted to be a VC. When I was a kid do you is I did not I have a technical background so I love Computers Program Computers Earth Way back in high school and college? I studied computer science and Decided that I wanted to program computers and some of the first ten years of my career was all about Being software engineer for a companies large and small I helped develop l. up a part of the UNIX operating system. So something you know you know really down and dirty and then also Develop applications locations financial branch automation. Applications did did the full stack Then I founded my first company which was an ad Tech Company Company and I was the founder CTO Then that company exited founded another company and then after that second company I had an opportunity to go into venture so it was a series of accidents decisions But I've been in venture for eleven years now and and having a great time so let's let's stay in the early days for a few questions at least where. What is this like equation? Technology this entrepreneurship side of you'd that come from your parents your parents entrepreneurs like do you want to work for a big company yourself like what. What is that inside of you? That kind of pushed you that way. My parents were the consummate entrepreneurs alcohol they neither of them had a college legit education. I'm not even sure whether they graduate high school But a so. They started number of businesses in the in the clothing industry Where they would sell clothing They had stores and all and I worked in those stores and saw a You know at age of Eight nine ten eleven working in the store selling women's clothing and They were very entrepreneurial. They grew their business from from one store to many stores And so was always in my blood and all during in high school and College I was starting a bunch of businesses and of course malt. Most of them failed But was always thinking about it about problems that need to be solved about opportunities markets And you know I remember back in my early days. I I used to keep a list of of ideas of companies that I would start at which I which I advise every entrepreneur to do is just can't keep a running list of of ideas and keep right reprioritising them which ones you think are less possible now or more possible. which ones are you more more or less excited about And funny A while back I. I look back at that list. And this list was from from the eighties and Their ideas on it. I actually think are still good ideas today and I challenge some of viewer. Your listeners may be to To do one of these businesses. A one of them was. I don't even was possible. But it's popcorn that POPs in the shape of an animal so like animal crackers for popcorn now so the margins on popcorn or probably nickel Lord. I but wouldn't you pay extra if the popcorn was in the shape of a zebra elephant or a lion or something that was one of my early ones. Some of them are crazy. Some of them not not so crazy and all But I always knew that I was going to to start a business and So I was just waiting for the right idea. I mean I love hearing about this because speaking of business side ideas starting businesses and all requires practice. It's not like you just have some light bulb moment and it's like i. I didn't think any businesses knife out of my very first one and this is going to be the one I'm GonNa go do and it's like it's a muscle that requires like use use. Yeah I I it you put it perfectly Alex that you have to be practicing you have to be an entrepreneur is not just somebody who starts a company it is somebody who is constantly continuously in that process of starting a company and then one of them actually sticks and you end up doing that for many years. It's also so feeling pain points and maybe maybe it's easier to start off if you don't have the list you've never thought of a business. Just to think of problems takes a long time to drives the airport or wait in line at security or whatever it is right down problems on and you can try to think of business solutions to those problems will. Maybe some. Don't have a solution. Maybe maybe some do I think it's a AH. There's a parallel though an opposite universes between entrepreneur and a comedian a comedian goes through life. Making all these observations of of Oh like a while waiting at the airport or whatever and they turned it into a joke or life. Experience and an entrepreneur makes those same mob's rations but instead of trying to make it funny. They actually try to solve that problem. I like that a lot of great one. Okay so you're this entrepreneurial kid growing up starting stuff left and right you go to college rate. Yes where do you go to college. Cal State Northridge California. My Business Partners to oh great from L. A.. I am from La and the clothing store was in La yes what part of La The clothing store was actually in Inglewood. we lived in La Proper and then eventually moved to Beverly Hills. Oh Great We'll talk about that later. Okay so so you you you gotta see sign and and when you're there you're still you do still have this like entrepreneurial passion because I was like you I was starting businesses left and right growing up and then I went to school and I I said I went to Pennsylvania and now it's like everyone's like I want to be an investment banker an accountant or a consultant on my. Oh there's like these prestigious jobs that society is telling me that I should go get I mean that was my path but in hindsight I was like wash continued starting businesses and your own the biggest dirt farm and by now or something but You get caught up kind of like what all your friends are doing. Did that happen to you. I was don't let any of my kids here this but I was not focussed on school at all. School to me was something that I knew I had to do that. I knew would look good on my resume But it's unless it was fun and interesting. I wasn't super engaged so during high school where I founded and one of my first companies called Mind Games which was A video game for the original Apple Computer so I would spend Days and nights and programming The game and maybe showed up for class maybe didn't and so in high school. My grades were marginal may be. I had a C. or a C. plus average I think in college. Maybe I opt it to A. B. or B. minus But I knew that the grades that was not going to be my taken And I have a lot of respect for those folks who are focused on maximizing their the university experience and I think that's that's super important for me adjust didn't click and so even during high school and and in College I was I was starting companies and probably migraine sufferers. It's I mean I think it's a good testimony so you were able to realize that school is not what I want to be focusing on I want to be focusing these other things because like I kind of feel like I was similar to you. I didn't school but did it anyway because they gave all pressure's it's like oh you need to do this and I should have just been. I mean not should've aminals my path until sure so I'm actually kind of envious of you that you had that south awareness to say. Yeah this is not not really focusing. Nobody has ever asked me what my GPA was not unless your like in the top the commodity And nobody asks you what an anybody's I volunteered it. Because I'm mullahs proud that I actually you know did not get as and BS that. I'm actually a C.. Student and was able to do quite well Um mm-hmm and so for all those people out there who maybe are focused on other things or school isn't their Forte They're still lots of opportunity out for those people

"Earlier this month southern California was rocked by two of the largest earthquakes. The region has experienced in twenty years for one man Jacob Margolis. All is the aftermath of the six point four and seven point. One magnitude tremors was a rare opportunity. It was a chance to remind fellow. Los Angeles residents about seismic seismic safety because few Californians a prepaid for a much bigger catastrophic quake which seismologists say is on the way his North America correspondent James Glen Day out in the middle of the desert one hundred and sixty miles away from where you're standing. There are two enormous tectonic plates that have been trying to slide past ask each other for millions of years but they're stuck today. They slept. That's Jacob Margolis describing a moment many in Los Angeles have buried somewhere way deep in the back of their minds the start of a massive earthquake. That's long being dubbed the big war. There's a huge quake on the San Andreas Fault in southern California. Every hundred years or so we haven't had one for about one hundred sixty early the see the journalists did K._p._C._C. Radio released this podcast on how to survive the coming catastrophe and right now he's in high demand interest in the big one has spiked following recent strong tremors that rattled the region in GonNa take probably nobly I think forty eight seventy two hours is good asking it probably closer to seventy two for outside help to get in and so you'll see roads severed train lines will be severed heard about eighteen hundred people will also die some from the inevitable building collapses some will burn you have a number of both electrical and gas fires that break <music> out and when those fires break out spread very very fast and we do not have enough emergency responders to respond to all the problems that will break out all those fires and the even the mayor of Los Angeles says that's one of his greatest fears and if it hit in like September or October when it's hot and it's like when he <hes> you know just like our hills like neighborhoods. Neighborhoods are going to burn and the water pipes will probably be cracked. Some roads will be impossible and so putting the FIS out could be tough but for the vast majority of people the biggest challenges will come in the weeks afterwards. I mean there's certain things like people won't have like people don't have access to <hes> hospitals. Possibles will be overrun. There's many hospitals in the state eight that are actually not seismically okay <hes> and in addition to that like you won't have access to emergency services for a period of time after the quake they're going to have to be self sufficient and and that's really scary to getting a badly crippled southern. California through such a challenging period requires preparation like bookcases screwed to wolves glass objects removed from key walkways in buildings a few weeks of water and food per household not to mention basic medical supplies so nowhere near enough people already. I I think people struggle and my this is myself included. I lived through the nineteen ninety-four Earthquakes Northridge Earthquake here in Los Angeles. That was supremely destructive. People died. I was out of my home with the kids and. And I still didn't have any of my resources ready. When I started this podcast and breezy it because you don't know and that's coming and so people kind of push it off shirow pressured off the problem with this it can literally happen at any time it can happen while we're recording this right now. It didn't obviously and it might not for decades but on the fourth of July ally when the earth started to shake into magnitude seven point one tremor struck Mr Montgelas felt calm and prepaid. He knew he'd be okay and in this fleeting period of heightened fear in the region. He's urging everyone to get ready now. It cost me fifty bucks to go out and buy enough water for two and a half weeks for a family of three and like if you don't have that kind of money I think it might be worth saving and making that best friend because it's your him so much better off if you have those basic things and that report from a North America correspondent James Glendale.

Looking back twenty five years ago for people who are not familiar with L A. And can you just put in context how big a deal Northridge was? Yes. So imagine you're laying in your bed. It's four thirty in the morning, presumably, you're sound asleep. And all of a sudden this random force of nature that no one had predicted just rips you from it you head outside. You see your neighbors milling about in kind of the dawn light as it starts to break. They look like it looks like a scenario from the Walking Dead. And as the sun comes up, you can actually start to survey the damage I talked to my dad about it because I was a bit. Yeah. Young at the time and asked him what he saw that day. And he actually let me know I remember driving down one of the main streets, and there were broken gas lines as well as broken water lines. There were also flames coming out of the water, very surreal, you know, burning water. I mean, how often do you see that? Wow. That's an image. Absolutely. And it was chaos and the entire time. You're trying to recover from the quake. There's these aftershocks rolling through blind after the other. So there's this really deep feeling some sort of like unknowable force just upsetting your life. Well, I mean, clearly that was so destructive I'm afraid to ask. But talk about exactly what scientists are predicting in terms of the next big quake here, there's an infinite number of scenarios.
