"Initial part which part of it when you say you're not a big fan of criminal justice reform. Is this what you're talking about? Or is there something a little bit more Bond? I know, all of the, all of the false narratives on law enforcement, the bias in policing, in prosecuting the myth that there are first defense drug offenders, this ridiculous. Idea that costs like cost incarceration. Okay, that's a thing. That's just a made up number. It sounds good. Libertarians use it to say what they'll save money, but costs of it's just a made up pretend number. And so to give you one example. So I'm writing the manuscript and I pull the numbers from our Department of Corrections website and at the time, we're one of the cheapest in the nation. Minimum security cost 14,000. Maximum cost $28,000 a year. Two months later, a buddy of mine's going to do a talk at a law schooler and try to ambush him on prison overcrowding. I fold some stuff in the manuscript and I go back to the website and I look and minimum went from 14 to 17,000 a year and maximum from 28,000 to 30 three when at 5000 a year. In two months, what the hell happened? Well, we had the largest commutation of prisoners in U.S. history, pushed by people from the right we should do this. And so we do it to save money. Well, all that happened was is all we did was just because few people in prison, the partner corrections weren't saying budget. What do they do? They just raised the pretend number at cost to incarcerate them. So basically, and I'm not that smart. That evades detection of everybody. But so what happened was, we let people out of prison that victimize other people. For the sole purpose of saving money, all we did was raise the pretend number of what the cost of incarceration are.

"You know, he says, I've been saying the eSports winter is coming, but even I didn't think it would be this cold. Now I've changed my forecast and think 30% plus teams of eSports teams worldwide won't make it the next two years. He also explained that he thinks leagues that rely on media and brand sponsorships won't survive and publishers finding other ways to create revenue for their events and teams is key, which he repeated on our podcast, by the way, where on our episode where he said that, you know, these leagues needed to allow teams to monetize through more in game activations. And he also mentioned brands are cutting costs. They're turning away from marketing. They're spending less dollars on their marketing budgets, et cetera. So he's fearful. What do you guys think of Arnold's comments here? And specifically, he aimed it at League of Legends eSports, which up until now, we've not sort of talked about with any kind of risk. You know what I mean? It's always been very kind of shiny talk around anything League of Legends. What do you make of Arnold's comments here? Jimmy? Well, like you said, Paul, he was just on the show talking about this eSports winner that's coming. You know, kind of a grim prediction at the time and something that we've seen unfold since then in the months since then with so many orgs that are firing or restructuring and trying to figure it out. I think the core of his point to the core of his point, the current eSports ecosystem and structure is just not something that can continue, right? It needs to evolve, I'm looking forward to, for example, the launch of the ten 47 games title split gate because that should have a different structure with their teams than I'm excited to learn about. I'm looking forward to seeing the numbers from Valorant in comparison to league because they change that up to benefit the teams a little bit more. But yeah, you can't deny that when you lose sponsors and when teams are look at faces stock right when they're either based off of clout and reputation or just based off of a failing business model where you spend $50 million to make 40 something has to give and I think if you look at what's working in this space, it's the game acres themselves, the developers and the publishers and it's the individual streamers and the talent. I think content creators are doing very well for themselves. I don't know why any content creator right now would sign on with any type of just because I think they could do better solo, honestly, depending on their size, of course. But having seen that that's kind of what's working and what's not working, I think, to Arnold's point, if you're a competitive eSports org like Genji, which is focused on winning and tournament play, as opposed to a hoodie org or even just more of a lifestyle brand org

"The combat after losing your leg? That's a great question, man. It's layered. I'll say kind of on the cusp of that is I'm stubborn. I'm competitive. As much as I enjoy winning, I really hate losing. More so, and there's a difference, as you know. Sure. So the idea of my future being dictated by anyone or anything other than me was something that just didn't sit well with me, laying in the hospital, you know, taking it a little bit deeper is passionate purpose. Two terms that get thrown around a lot. Different interpretations, perhaps from individual, I'll say that I have recognized the passion I have, not for being a green beret, but for earning my green beret every single day. Like a love of the game, a passion of the game. And then a deep sense of purpose, what is your why? Like answering that question, what is your soul pulling you towards a deep connection with this lifestyle and having realized that I was put on this earth to be a warrior and to pledge allegiance to a society in which I'll protect it all costs. Wow. So I know that that's who I am. So it really didn't give me an alternative option. Sure. And how many, how long does it take usually to become to enter in the green beret? And to be in that community and how many members are there active green beret? The process can take usually somewhere between 12 and 18 months of training to be able to do that. For the special forces aspect of that in particular, that really doesn't include basic training, airborne school, some of these other qualifications you have to have prior to, yes, sir. So it might take a couple of years first and then 12 to 18 months after all the basic training and the certification. Right. Once you go into selection, special forces assessment and selection, which is now about a 20 day process to determine if an individual has the physical and psychological and character traits that could make a good green beret. From that point moving forward, it's about 12 to 18 months. And how many current members are there? Current members. Oh man, I'd have to with the range. Yeah, I'd say that thousands is a tens of thousands. Is it hundreds? No, no, no. We're probably talking somewhere around 8 thousand. 8000. Yeah, 7 to 8. Don't fool me on that. It's an extraordinarily small number. Compared to the overall. How many are in total active military? What's the entire Department of Defense military? Around 2 million, 2 million. 7000 roughly out of 2 million, somewhere around there, yeah. Wow. Yeah, we make up.

"Hi everyone. Welcome to another episode of office hours with the professor. As always, I'm your host, William, the professor collis, and let's get right into this week's story that I picked out McDonald's has designed the perfect gaming chair. The key features of this gaming chair are obviously McDonald's branding and colors. It seems like the leather or the finish on this chair is grease proof. I guess that's cool. There's an integrated burger warmer. And then there's these armrests things that you can click on and off that are designed to hold some specific McDonald's menu items. And overall, don't get too excited guys. You can't buy this yet because overall they're only four of these made and they were basically only given away either to streamers or I think there was a competition winner. So why did I want to talk about the McDonald's gaming chair? Because I think my take on this is interesting. And my take is this does not go far enough. And by that I mean, you know, and I've said this before and I'll say it again. I think there is real potential in gaming accessories as a licensed category. Think about the Xbox fridge that blew up and eventually was produced as a real mini fridge that you can buy. I think brands need to stop thinking about sort of gaming accessories as just pure straight up PR plays, like this clearly was. And begin genuine and exploring it as a licensed category. And I get for McDonald's, this was probably a very effective PR promotion. I mean, they basically sort of put labels on four chairs, and they got a ton of news coverage from it. People talked about it. It was an interesting story. But there was a reason news outlets are giving this coverage. It's because I actually think as silly as this chair sounds, there might be a market for it. You might be surprised how much people have an affinity for a brand when a customer has affinity for a brand. We're in how they want to show it. And if there is something in their daily life that they use frequently, a branded version of that can add real value. So as ridiculous as it might sound, I think McDonald's branding on a gaming chair could work. I admit, I wish the gaming chair features were a bit better thought out. It bugs me that there's this vision that gamers are still literally eating Big Macs while they're playing League of Legends. Like, come on, we don't need that's just not how people use gaming chairs or play today at all. But nonetheless, I think the intent remains in the idea remains that this could work as a broader category. So overall, I give this story a B I think it's a great PR play by McDonald's, good for them. But as I said, I wish this was more. And I wish that brands like McDonald's that are big and significant, we're taking gaming accessories more seriously as a potential license category. So that's everything for this week's office hours of professor podcast. And I hope you'll join me next week when we cover more exciting news stories like this. So stay tuned.

"And of course that comes with a 30 day money back guarantee and today we're gonna talk about a skill that should come easy to you and yet it doesn't. And what is that skill? It's kind of weird. Should we start off with a humble brag, let's start off with a humble brag. We'll get this out of the way. In 2018, in the city of brotherly love, I was inducted into the academy of podcasters Hall of Fame. Now there is a board that makes up this particular Hall of Fame area. And so essentially I was voted in by my peers. And that really, really touched me. It wasn't something when I started out in the basement of my brother's house, I just wanted to help people. And I knew I could do it on a global scale. So I was very humbled when that happened, but then something happened that I didn't quite think, that's an interesting side effect. And that is it really messed with my head. It really, every time I turned on the mic, I was like, is this Hall of Fame material? Is it Hall of Fame? Is it this? Is this worthy of a Hall of Fame? And it really, really jacked with my head. And then I finally because I was like, I gotta put an episode out this week. And I said, okay, let's reverse engineer this a bit. Why did they vote you into the podcasters Hall of Fame? And I was like, well, when I ask people, they like me because I'm kind of entertaining, I'm funny, and I typically they say, I learned something with when I listen to your show. And I was like, okay, so that's kind of how I picture myself. And I was like, so really what I need to do here is be myself. I just need to be me. Keep doing what I was doing because when you start to look at other people and other things, it can really, again, number one, it'll ruin your ego because I've said before, the worst thing you can do is compare your show to somebody else, now why is that? Because you have four kids, two jobs, and soccer practice every day at four. They have no kids, no spouse, and 6 figures in the bank. That's not really a fair comparison. Other things that include that is you're doing a show about pygmy ponies in Iowa, they're doing a show about being fat

"Give the team a lot of props that the game still last year was the highest performing year revenue wise 8 years in to the game. So yeah, it's a great community and I'm sure if the team knew the one thing that would allow it to supplant League of Legends, they would do it. But at this point, I'm skill shot. I'm ghost. I'm into all the publishers all the games, so I can't play favorites. Now, is there anything you would have done different though? Because Todd, you know, one of the reasons people listen to the podcast, I think, is to get insight from people like you who have succeeded and also failed and can benefit from two decades of experience you have in the industry. So yeah, no, I think a lot of it is literally just timing, you know, our first game was very innovative and it broke a lot of genre boundaries and probably too many to be commercially successful. And so what we try to do at high res is find a genre understand the conventions of the genre and innovate on one or two of them to make them unique with smite. It was third person with paladins. It's a team based shooter inspired by team fortress, developed at the same time as Overwatch, but we added a series of being able to modify your characters with cards, like an element of a moba, right? So customization on top of your team shooter. So I think with a lot of those things, the timing of when you catch that wave is sometimes you're too early. Sometimes you're too late. And I think that more than anything is where you end up between being number one and number 5 on the chart. It smite world championship. We made phone fingers of the number three, and we proudly said, we're number three with dota and League of Legends, being one and two. And that's a great business. There's not a four or 5 or beyond that are viable. So you do what you can. Let me tie this into ghost for a second. You know, we've had team owners on the podcast who have at least hinted that because of their audience as eSports org owners or team owners that they're thinking about getting into game development, right? It's like we have an audience.

"Types of roles that we're trying to fill. They have a variety of different creative and marketing specialties, but also as I mentioned, it could be something where someone's like, hey, I just need someone for 20 hours a week, or where someone's like, I need someone for three months because someone's on family leave or I'm looking for a full-time person. So what I love about that is I think it gives talent the opportunity to make those choices that work for you, right? Because you might be in a situation where you want a full-time gig, but you also might be in a situation where it's your side hustle. You only want to do ten hours a week or you know you have something else going on. So I think it allows talent to have the flexibility to do that. Yeah, that's great too. So let's talk a little bit about the state of the job market right now. And I've been very narrowly focused over the last few years on sort of the I guess really to put a big umbrella around it. I'd say video, right? It's like animation and that can include things that show up on TV on the web, on social media. But typically it's like designed and animated. And there's been this absolute explosion of the need for that and especially during the pandemic where from my perspective, at least in that narrow niche of design, there are just not nearly enough artists to fill all the roles that are out there. So it seems to be very much a seller's market. And talent base is much broader and you're not just dealing with design, you're dealing with marketing and even sort of project management. So what's the state of the industry in terms of the amount of work out there, the amount of people looking for talent, and then the amount of available talent? Is there an imbalance? How's that working right now? It's a very talent driven market, right? I think you just called it a seller's market, the seller being the talent in that example. So I think if you're a talent, it is, you know, it's a great time to look for opportunities, explore new opportunities. I think all of us have heard about the great resignation where people are leaving jobs. And I think in many ways, you know, while we call it the great resignation, you know, perhaps it's more the great reflection, right? I think the pandemic has caused us all to kind of take a step back and think about what matters to us. How are we working? Are we do we love what we do? Are we our values aligned with our company's values? And as we talk about going back to normal, you can't unsee. And what we've seen and experienced these past three years. And so it is, you know, so that's caused a lot of people to leave existing jobs. You know, and also there's a lot of people that don't want to go back into the office, right? They've had the experience of working remotely and say I like this and I don't want to go back into the office anymore. So there are a lot of organizations that are looking for talent. So if you have that skill set, particularly in video animation and I think in the marketing and design industry, it is a great time. There's a lot of demand. And part of that is because we've had people's viewing habits have increased over the past two years in terms of the amount of content that they're consuming. We know that video tends to engage audiences probably almost two times if not more than just a static image or just text. So it is the way that marketing is moving, right? Every marketer is thinking about how do I bring more video content onto my different platforms, whether it's social media, whether it's email, whether it's the web, et cetera. So it is really a great time to be in that space and to be looking. I think there's lots of opportunities. Yeah, I mean, that just echoes what we've seen at school motion. So as far as the actual mechanics of staffing these creative jobs, I have a lot of experience hiring an artist for a role at the studio. I used to run or recommending talent to people or hiring people at school of motion. But obviously, it went, I mean, there must be thousands and thousands of placements happening every year. And so I'm sure that you've learned a lot about what it takes to have a successful placement with an artist or just anyone in the creative space going into a company. And having that be a wins, I'm curious if there's anything surprising that you've seen over the years or just sort of rules of thumb that tell you this type of artist is going to work great in this type of company. Yeah. So you know, it's interesting when I actually reached out to our recruiters and asked them, you know, hey, what are your thoughts about this to get some feedback? Because I'm not direct recruiting in my role as director of marketing. But I think what they shared are just some great tips for people in general. One was be able to clearly articulate the value and the story. Be able to story tell and show how your contribution made a difference to the business, right? So versus seeing, hey, I designed this great video. It might be like I designed this great video that led to X number of leads and whatever, being able to give some specifics. Now it certainly you may not have that in every single situation, but even just being able to say I designed this great video that got 3000 views on LinkedIn or something like that. So being able to kind of link your work to the results is important, being able to story tell in general. So again, I'm going to stay a little bit with the video editor. That is a huge element of storytelling. So being able to really have that story flow through the video and have the audience be able to connect with it, have it be able to resonate with them. The second tip is certainly have a great portfolio. Have a website or somewhere where you can showcase your work so that people can look at examples of your work. If you don't have that on LinkedIn, you certainly there are opportunities to put that on LinkedIn on your profile page, where you can link to pieces of work that you've done. But have a great portfolio. And then one of the other tips that they gave that I thought was great was really just that adaptability, being able to pivot being able to go with the flow, being able to, how often have many of us, you know, you've taken a job, and then when you get there, it's a little bit different than what you thought, or something changes, right? No one expected COVID. So I don't care what your job description was to change.

"Have an incredible, healthy work life balance. If you're interested, let's lean in and listen to what Leanne has to tell us, but before we get too far, let's hear from one of our alumni at school of motion. At first took a school of motion course back in 2018 when I was working four times a graphic designer wanted to break into the world of motion. For me, the big benefit of taking the course is while working was being able to incorporate the things you've just learned straight into your job, which give me a real nice boost as my enthusiasm and start to fall off. But when you're working on assignments and seeing your peers returning great work, it's really inspiring in the time just flies by, especially the end of the course, when you look back on how much progress you've made, it's a really great feeling and a nice boost to your confidence. Not only of these courses, given me the skills to get hired in the world of motion design. But they've also given me the knowledge to be able to dive deeper into areas that I'm passionate.

"Well, they're designed to suck up the smoke from your fireplace. So they do their job, too. One of the other things that I thought was very important that you mentioned is talking about and it seems to me obvious, but I wonder how many people think about it is the duct work and it gets exposure if it's exposed if it's under in a crawl space or something like that. And you know what? A lot of us don't really know, especially if you've moved into a newer house and you're not that familiar with the house. So you really need to do a little bit of exploring knowing you to see where all that air is going. You do. And so the Department of Energy, it estimates that many homes lose 20% of their heating and cooling costs from having just leaks in their duct work. And so one thing you can do is especially if you have duct work that's in an unfinished era of your home is simply tape up all the different joints and the duct work if there are holes, plug them up, use mastic tape, or there's also something called HVAC foil tape. You won't be able to get to ducts that are in, you know, behind walls or above ceilings or anything like that. But if you have renovation work being done and you have access to them, make sure you take that opportunity to go ahead and seal them up as much as you can. Another big source of waste is that sometimes ducks run through crawl spaces or basements that aren't conditioned that there's no heating or cooling in the area and not very much. And so you can actually wrap that duct work and insulating material to and again, it's another way to easily and really quite inexpensively safe on your heating and cooling bills. Well, and not only are you saving on it, but it'll make your heating more consistent, even your.

"We have a particular group i lead. Their focus is on education and dialogue and being able to bring challenging speakers to our students and creating space where diverse students can come together and engage in this conversation in a really safe way. I also see it happening. We have an israel big questions fellowship. That our students participate in that dives in deeper but their own relationship with israel and helps them understand when something anti israel comes up on campus. Why are they impacted by it. And what part of their jewish identity is even triggered by that are they even triggered by that. Do care when these things happen and we find that the students who participated in that israel big questions fellowship. Last year they felt more quick to be able to bring their voice to the conversation this summer. Not just directly to leaders in student government but also just to their friends through who they were seeing them post. Different things through social media. They felt that they could engage in conversation with their friends about what they were seeing being posted online. I wanna share one story about the vibrancy of jewish life and it came in a moment when these incidents were really emerging on our campus. A couple of years ago and so we had parents come visit us a few years ago. We're having a huge dinner. There were probably four hundred people in the room. His daughter is an active leader in our hillel and was so happy on campus. And just so happy to show her parents what her experience was like on campus and this parent came up to me and he said to me that he's so upset with some of the anti israel stuff that was happening on campus that he'd never would've allowed his daughter to come to michigan. Had he known this was going to happen. And i just thought look around you look at what an amazing jewish experience. Your daughter is having What leadership opportunity. She has really. I was thinking that this this moment does vibrancy of jewish life. This community building views leadership opportunities. That's she's going to take with her when she graduates and thinks back about her time on campus. Till if you could give you know. I think that that disk or not. Disconnect but the two sides one of often receives coverage in one that receives less coverage if you could give the broader jewish community kind of one sentence of what they should really understand about the campus experience. What would that be.

And what's important is that there is an active vibrant jewish community with programming every day for students to take advantage of so i ask our students..
