An Ex-Marine's Journey Of Healing And Unraveling The Mysteries Of The Mind With David Richards

"Richards David Richards, is a business professional life coach Yoga instructor and. and Speaker on self development. He spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and three years living on the island of Okinawa Okinawa Japan after graduating university with a degree in English he was commissioned and officer in the Marines. He served fifteen years active duty before deciding to break out from the bought that his father and brother at followed in making the military. Career and left the Marines to pursue a life as a civilian, he joined Cisco Systems in two thousand six and shortly thereafter discovered yoga. Don't do it insightful and sometimes silly. It blends elements of Yoga with quantum physics to bring the esoteric together with the practical for eight, truly unique perspective of how the mind works in greeting easily understood self development plans that create lasting change for a more fulfilling life so. These are some clues or hints into our. We might be speaking about today. David really great to have you on our show, and are you ready to inspire? So, glad to be here. Thank you for the introduction. Absolutely a registered with your audience stories and things that have worked things that haven't worked, but the the growth that the journey of life is so absolutely wonderful, so I start. Let's talk about your child to begin with. What was it like growing up in your house or in your home? Yeah, it's. We had a loving very loving nurturing environment. And everybody grows up with their sense of normal, and so for me. My sense of normal was we moved every two to three years. And? What I didn't realize was a lot of that created. Beliefs in me. Just, really long relationships you a one day. You might best friends and the next day I'm moving because. I'd I'd got orders to a new duty station. And so this is certainly before the age of the Internet. And on facebook and chatting and texting, and so our French just stopped But it was great to you know on the on the flip side. It was great to see different parts of the country and early age great certainly live in Japan for for three years now got to South Korea got the Philippines there, and and just being exposed to different parts of the world at that age had tremendous impact that still with me. Today got it. So that moving know that having a friend and losing the friend because you're moving to another city are part of the country. What sort of impacted that have on you in retrospect because I remember. When I was a kid, it happened the other way for me. 'cause I used to have a friend, and then he would move to a different city. Burns would get relocated and deep down. I felt that I could. Could never have a longtime friend. I always wanted to have that best friend as kids. We WanNa feel accepted. We want to have that friendship. You want to feel that you love as a property, but the fact that every time I made a friend, either he would move to a different city or I would move schools and I. Don't know I'm still discovering how that has me long, but how did that? You, don't affect you. Know for sure it really did. It created to beliefs that I took with me into my adult life, and so one of those. Relationships end and so. I just didn't fully appreciate the currency of a rich relationship in rich friendship, and what that meant and certainly had some. as I went you know as I grew up in I still remember this guy comes to mind Jason. Who is my best friend? When we lived through Japan, we stayed touch for years afterwards when his family moved to Virginia, moved North Carolina. But I just didn't appreciate that keeping someone in having a lifelong friend. was really something that I could have and. So that was one belief that just friendships and relationships ended I started carried. You know I've got great friends from high school still. is a long time, but the other believe really that it created was. When it came to romantic relationships, and so, if you have this dynamic that in some cases, relationships end well when it comes to romance, and you almost of have to go all in because you're trying to shore up this relationship before you get to the point where it's GonNa end. And so I became super romantic. I became a really romantic person. I wrote poems. I think when. Other people? In certainly later part of high school into college, discovering physical intimacy I was still kind of looking at romantic. But that you know those those two beliefs I really took with me through big part, my dot life, too I think was only through. Kenner the last you know five or six years that I really awoke to them and realized the power they'd have of me and was able to let them go. Thanks Norfolk shedding. It's interesting how one incident or two incidents. Are you know these things that happen to ourselves? Student Avenue Affect Different aspects of our life, even as we're adults, and only when we sort of. DIG The dive to shine the light on those parts of is which are now in the dock realize. Wow, that that did affect me right, so thanks a lot for sharing now your father and your brother will vote Marines right so what ruled deeply as you're growing up in your decisions, especially as far as the Yeah, you know it's it's funny. It was very creative growing up and I think that was part of the. Reality of not having consistent friend that I went from Grade School. All the way up to high school with I got really creative, so I wrote. I I drew I was very artistic. And in high school actually got something published You know a piece of A. Short story published honorable mention in a magazine nationally. I just thought that everybody can do that I just I didn't realize that it was. The writing was something that I just excel that a little bit so? When it came time to look at life after high school I remember my my dad's down. He said listen. You will pay for part of you're going to pay for the other half and. Get naked scholarship that's great. If not you might look at ROTC and join the military and. I guess one of the beliefs that I I grew up with it mentioned. Was I learned to hate the marine? Corps Because I blame them for always moving around and so. I thought. Okay, if I have to do military scholarship. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to join the marines because no and. And so and there wasn't any you know. My Dad didn't push me. My brother was kind of going down that path as well. And I got into college and I was going to go into the. and. So every semester when you do ROTC program. You have to do a class for ROTC. And, so the class is like naval weapons system, so it's Kinda like missiles and stuff. It's really cool and second semester. Its naval like engineering like the actual ships engineering, and my mind is a liberal arts mind, and so I started him mechanical engineering just GonNa blacked out. Going to be good. I get to the grains. And so, that's kind of the pathway that took me down. That was you know I know the Maria familiar with them I grew up in the Marine Corps and so that was the path I decided to say.

Managing Grief and Anxiety in Difficult Times With Aneesh Chaudhry

"It's safe to say that. At any given time, everyone is going through something in their lives, but rarely do we have a situation where so many people are collectively going through such a trying time. To good news is, we're going to get through this and we can use this time to build new habits and be stronger than before. This week's guest is here to talk about how to manage our energy and deal with such negative emotions as grief loss anxiety. Chowdhry is founder of the brain health clinic soul, physio lifestyle where he works with a team of doctors, psychologists and other healthcare professionals take a whole body approach to wellness. He's here to talk about what he's seen. And what practices we all can use to stay mentally and physically fit during this time. A niche welcome to happy now. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here. Yeah, I'm excited to talk to you. Because we are in a time of very rapid change, you know for the past few weeks. A lot of our podcasts have dealt with what people are doing as their quarantine during lockdown, but you're now. We're starting to open up yet. We still see a lot of uncertainty so. To start things off. Can you talk about some of the tips you might offer for managing kind of uncertainty were dealing with right now. The biggest piece of advice giving clients a lot of other people I've spoken to on different podcast. Enemies been doing is. To be in a place of acceptance and when I say sapped, accepting the fact that there is a lot of different things that we can't change, that are happening in the world, and not to say they're not a big deal to minimize it, but for our own sake, our own well-being stressing out of. These things that we may controls ultimate can be counterproductive for our own help our wellbeing and it's really important being catered to that and coming to a place of. Understanding that you know it's really really vital that we use our resources in terms of our time, our energy to focus on being able to rebuild our lives to whatever degree that been affected by this whole pandemic. Glad. You brought that up. Because acceptance is something that I've really been doing a meditation on most of last couple of weeks, and it doesn't mean resignation. Some people feel like if I accepted then. That's kind of resignation. Can you talk about what acceptance does for us? We're acceptance does is a free space in your mind in your spirit to be able to focus on the things that really are going to make a positive impact on life was ultimately when you're in a place of fighting things, you can't control and exerting energy to trying to change things that you simply don't have control over I. Don't WanNa say the word waste, but I guess in a way it is going to be a waste of our resources because I mean you know people talk so much about time out front whose time one concept I really liked to talk about introduce of maybe even to some people. Listening is the concept of energy management. Would, that is really really thinking about Okinawa, only how am I spending my time, but how is my mind engaged am I truly fully present what I'm doing or my worried anxious. Ignore what happened yesterday? What could happen? Because when you spend time thinking about the past or worrying about the future that drains a significant amount of energy and being able to stay grounded in the present moment alway. Mindful place than us on a position where we can begin to analyze irrational standpoint, not from an emotional standpoint in terms of okay, here's. How say the pandemic has influenced when light ABC and here's what I can do? About how to solve that? I'm glad you brought that up because it gets difficult if you turn on the news, because even though they're saying Oh, hey were opening up a little, and it's getting better, but we can expect a second wave so i. hear a lot of people parodying that they're saying you know it's like hey. Things are getting better. They're like yeah, but this is coming, so would they are putting energy into yet? Don't get too comfortable. Don't like this too much because it's GonNa. Get again. And I think just inevitably when you have a quarantine of this degree, and yes, I mean that you can flatten the curve or save it when you do open up. The virus is still circulating so I. think that we will see more aces, but then at the same time this was part of the processed I mean I really had to come into a? A place of accepting that it's summer most troubling times I've seen in my life and I know I probably will see the duration of my life, but I've also use this time as a time to go inwards and really learn and spend time doing things that I wouldn't have time doing and I been in California. Say running my businesses like I normally would. And it's opened up opportunities to meet people with this new virtual platform that everyone's having to adopt in really becoming with the social distancing, really having utilized zoom, and whether it's with friends family business I've met more people over the past two months than I met my hordes light, just because of accessibility optimism as

A conversation about race, privilege and making space

"Watch a dot. Say Nin, hello, and welcome this unreserved on CBC Radio One I'm Rosanna dare child. In October of two thousand and eighteen I moderated, a panel called inside outside at six degrees held at the art gallery of Ontario. It's an event that invites authors, academics, politicians, and big thinkers together to discuss pressing issues. And Right, now there is one issue that has captured the world's attention. The death of George Floyd a forty six year, old, black man and in Minneapolis police officer now charged with second degree murder. His death was witnessed around the world and sparked support for the black lives matter movement with protests from Merika to Australia. We are at a turning point in our history, so we thought it was a perfect time to revisit this conversation. Today on unreserved. We're talking about power, privilege and asking. How willing are we to make meaningful change? Joining me on stage, our Alexis McGill Johnson of the perception institute. Is Your allure author speaker and Internet yeller not to know bed. National Inuit leader and president of new tap read Cana Tommy and Sassy assassin professor of Sociology at Columbia University. Okay so I'm afternoon. We're going to have a conversation around place. Power Privilege, who hasn't who doesn't and perhaps more importantly how we are shifting to create new spaces. I want to start with of course are beautiful panelists here? I want to ask you first of all to tell US share with us. Where you come from because as my elders teach, you cannot know where you're going until you know where you've come from. or at least that's what my mother would say when she sent me to the store. my first question to each of the panelists are what is the place that you come from? Perhaps we'll start with me. Thank you very much I guess I'm still trying to figure that one out. I. I thought I came from Canada. I was the young person and I'm not quite sure if that's the right. Way To think about where I'm from now. Nuts. which is. A region in new one of our four regions northern Labrador and we very recently got self-government, two thousand and five. But I grew up. There I also grew up in the United States I I grew up. Kind of between a lot of different worlds so I, Can i? Also say that I'm a global citizen as well so I am the national leader I am in Okinawa proud indigenous person. But it doesn't. Then, take back any of the other parts of me, that exist as well and I'm I'm comfortable insertive in that space, and I think that is sometimes confusing to the rest of the world that I have not indigenous ancestry as well that my mother is none dishes. That's fine and getting the acceptance from. Canada and North America that I can be indigenous, but I can also have non indigenous parts. That is a part of this power dynamic that I hope that we can discuss this afternoon about assertiveness in. Indigenous. Without the. The qualifiers that indigenous people put on us. And if we don't fit into those myriad of boxes than we somehow lose all of our rights altogether. And we will get into that because that is an interesting place of privilege to. TRY TO KICK doors. Down into so that we're GONNA. Wait to Alexa. So, we're my from. Kind of like to say I'm from a period of time. I was I was born in Nineteen, seventy two, which is important to me as a social identity really. but it's important for me. Because it was, it was halfway I was born kind of right in the middle of a post wave, second wave, feminism, and the Black Power Movement and my parents, both particularly my mother lived at the intersection of both of those movements growing up. She was incredibly active as a woman is. She, she had US marching in in our Shakey's an Afro puffs as as children I'm pretty sure I learned the words to. We shall overcome before I learned the US pledge of allegiance. My choice of professional careers always been trying to to understand interrogate these these. Frameworks power and Privilege Ed. I studied political science. Which I think is a study of power. But have found myself now consistently in these rooms, as one of few one of only, if not the only woman woman of Color, and so I've been this bridge I think kind of connecting. Connecting the dots in a lot of different iterations from a cultural perspective where I've worked with a number of artists and democratic organizations, organizing young people to the current work that we do have perception which is around translating the science of our brains and bodies understand difference in how we connect to each other in those ways.

British Columbia Heather has a few card down there. She mixes them up and then she asked us and we don't prep for this at all. What our best memories of this specific places so today. We're doing a whole province and it's GonNa be hard because we spent a lot of time in British Columbia and we've gone all around British Columbia. Obviously we spend a ton of time in Victoria. Think Hoover Islands part of British Columbia? Spending time in Vancouver. We've been up to whistler. We'd been out to the Okinawa Gin. So it's going to be hard to pick somewhere places but hey that's what happens. That's the tough job of being travel. Podcast SO WE HAVE DESTINATION. Diaries and we have one. I'm pretty sure on Vancouver so we don't have one. I think on the whole of British Columbia. So you'll be getting some new content here with this little mini series. And I guess we should just jump right in. Let's do it okay. The first card is oh how appropriate best during so. I've been thinking a lot about this. And she told me redoing British Columbia literary four minutes ago and there have been a lot of places that we've drank at Including Vancouver we one time. We're in Vancouver for twenty one days and I did twenty one breweries and twenty days and I was pregnant so I did zero breweries. I mean I went to them but yeah so and we've spent a lot of time in Victoria. And some great wineries out in the Okinawan and all but for me. I think it will come back to a beer. Coast Mountain honorable mention and because of the hat. Awesome little brewery up in squamish tackling games. Garmisch just south of whistler fun little place cool like everything wanting to bury small little joint. That heather actually stayed in the car because again. I think you're pregnant at that point and she took a nap. I just went in and had a little flight by myself. You know really neat. People could be the coast from the brewery. No but it's called coast to Coast Mountain. Which is also a weird name. My name like it's just a weird. You're just taking two words and putting them together but it works and I love the hat and I'd like to branding but my number one favorite. So it's not honorable mention. Okay right you told me that we could go longer than fifteen minutes. Because now we have a compressor so we can put it on. Igt No if you read our post from last week. But I had the hardest time trying to get our videos out because if you video over fifteen minutes you have to do it from your granddaughter and it has to be an MP anyway. It was a whole long saga. But I bought the software. Because what does one do? I mean we needed. We needed to get the videos to you. We needed to get the videos. You so then Heather told. I said we are GONNA be fifty minutes is going to be hard for British Columbia said. Oh no no we got we got the compressor we can do want so. My overall favorite drink is strathcona brewing in Vancouver for two reasons. One Strathcona brewing itself has really good beer. Super Cool brewery really hipster in in like a gentrifying neighborhood for sure but they also at the time we were there and I'm not sure if the guy still does this but there is a gypsy. Burr call who runs a Burri called superfly. Meaning he doesn't have his own brewery brews at Strathcona and comes up and bruised. They're apparently lives in a van. No joke down by a river and then comes up to strathcona debris here and there and this was two years ago so things could have could have changed this super flex beer is awesome so they sell super flex at Strathcona brewing and their beers incredible and then bring has their own beer and their beer is really good too so those my if you want the best drink we've had in British Columbia head to Strathcona brewing. Try and try to get your hands on superfly which you can get in grocery stores and convenience stores to

Geometry-Aware Neural Rendering with Josh Tobin

"Art Everyone I am here in Vancouver at nerves. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred and I've got the pleasure being seated with Josh Tobin. Josh is a former research scientist at open. Ai and a co organizer of full deep learning Josh. Welcome to the trauma add podcasts. Thanks happy to be here awesome. So let's maybe jump into a little bit of your background. You spend some time at opening I and you did your PhD at Berkeley advised by Peter. Bill who's been on the podcast before? Yeah so I got into the field about four years ago then really. I started at Berkeley in the applied program. And then You know kind of on women took a class with Professor reveal who ended up becoming my adviser and I was just kind of blown away by the potential of Ai to make robotics work better and so through that. I ended up working with Peter and spending a bunch of time at opening. I and so. What are you currently up to yes. I left opening a few months ago and in the process of exploring kind of what's dive into next figuring out what's next yeah exactly. Nice Nice And so you're talk here actually later. This afternoon is on geometry aware neuro rendering. What's right what's that? Is that something you worked on? Ed Open or kind of personal interests. Yeah that's something I worked on at Okinawa. I also through like during my PhD at Berkeley Kind of While I was spending time in both places okay And so the kind of the core problem that I'm working on there is You know how do we look in robotics? In order to to act. Robots need to. I understand what's happening in the world and so typically the way that you'll do that in robotics is you'll take your sensor observations about the world and you'll map them to some way of representing the state of the world so where all the objects what poses are they in what configuration is the robot in etc but the challenge. Is that as you move to? More and more complex scenes than it becomes hard to write down a concrete representation of the state of the world. Nam The kind of the focus of this work is on implicit understanding. So can we. Can we take some sensor observations about a scene and then use that to create a representation of the world that Kind of implicit Lee has an understanding. What's happening the scene? And so what's Can you be more concrete than that or is there an example that That you describe that yeah absolutely so that concrete in the way that you formulate. The problem is You take one or more. Observations of the scene so think about cameras imaging the same scene from different viewpoints. And then you train a model and the goal. That model is to give him some arbitrary other viewpoint on that could be any other viewpoint of the scene. The models goal is to render what it thinks. The scene looks like from that viewpoint And so the industry if they can do that than it has an accurate kind of implied or implicit representation of what's happening in the the tuition rates if If the model can do that task well. It has to have some sort of representation internally. That understands what's going on in the scene practically when you do this academy cameras. Are we talking about yeah? It's A. It's a handful. I mean it's The the formulation can really extent any number In practice I usually used three cameras to image the scene. And then the fourth point is the one that the the model is trying to predict. That is the the neuro rendering part of the the talk. The geometry aware implies that it's kind of a model based approach in some sense. Yeah I mean so. The geometry aware part is the kind of the inspiration for the work that I did And what I built on this paper from deep mind call Geeky one Genitive query networks. Okay and so the the extension that I added to. That is the geometry aware part refers to is if you if you know The geometry of the scene so where the cameras are relative to one another than that allows you to constrain the process of of searching what pixels are most relevant to rendering a particular Pixel So you know if you're rendering a particular viewpoint and you WanNa know you know. Okay what should I imaging? This pixel somewhere in the the image that I'm wondering then you want to do. Is You want to go back. And Look at all the images that you've been giving US context and sort of search over those images for relevant information and if it turns out to be used geometry of the scene this thing from classical computer vision called the people are geometry then you can constrain that search to a line in each of the context viewpoints and so maybe as context kind of walk us through G. Qn and what that paper is talking about. Yeah so they're taking this problem of neural rendering rate so looking at looking at a scene for multiple points in rendering from an arbitrary other viewpoint and then they set up a model structure in the with that model structure works is basically an encoder decoder architecture. So the encoder takes each of the viewpoints and maps them through accomplish on their own network independently and so then you representation for each of those points. Those representations are summed and you get sort one representation for the entire scene. So that's kind of the encoder part like element wiser caffeinated. Yes some element wise. Okay Yeah So. Then you take that that representation for the scene. And he passed to the decoder And then the decoder shop is to take that representation and sort of go through this multi step process. Turn it into the what. He thinks the image from that viewpoint should look like okay and is there any particular intuition for the element wise some versus keeping everything around? You know I think the main intuition is that you want it to be You don't want to depend on the order that you present the Cameron So you can candidate than order matters. Some it doesn't okay. And so they they're results. Were purely based on this Just the camera angles in the kind of encoder decoder architecture. And so that when you added was a constraint to the search base that is based on what we know about the geometry. Epa people urgency polar geometry. So so so. Basically the the contribution of paper is You know there's this sort of bottleneck in the formulation where you know you've taken the encoder and that's giving you Representation of the scene and then pass that to a decoder. But what we do instead is Instead of having this representation of the scene instead we haven't attention mechanism. Is that attention? Mechanism allows you to when you're generating a new image to attend over all the permission in the in the representations at the context images that you've been given in the way that attention mechanism works is by taking advantage of this this sort of fact of three geometry called the the The geometry is calling it and attention. Mechanism is it. Is it like attention like or is it implemented the way attention is often implemented in these kinds of networks? Yeah so it's it's implemented exactly like what kind of like a scale products attention but the way that you have to do that is you know you have for every pixel. You're searching over a line. You need to create unique to construct the right br representation so that you can do attention in the normal way.

All About Lectins and Other Fun Facts

"In is actually one of the major key inflammatory things so when people talk talk about Gluten Right Electon is actually one of the thing and gluten makes the inflammatory response happened body. The gluten activator the election. Alexa like The way the dude explain it is like when you're when you get a splinter in your skin gets red bodies having like an anti inflammatory reaction electons or what do that internally internally okay so everybody suggests the main player in this right not true. That was the brain game changer from this dude. Dr Gunn got injury in the ultra. podcast anyway welcome to the PODCAST. Everybody so wait Chris. I'm pulling it up just to like not to play for you. What is where okay? It's all gluten contain Leptin. Yes so like if if you are if you need to avoid Latin whole new world gluten is not the answer so okay how. How do you avoid electing that? Is You do your best of luck. And so part of what blew my mind in this podcast. Is that like. There's a many people who go on a gluten free diet who actually absorbed and bring in more electins than if they were to just eat bread in moderation. What are the visualize electon? Oh man some of the vehicles that you would not suspect. ACT The skin on almonds so Marcona almonds Is it a fancy ones these reality from Italy just like de skinned but like so the skin get on almonds so there's people who like like legumes in general but not if so he's like but beans are actually good if you you have them either pressure cooked or you get a certain brand or you soak them really well for a long time because it's in the skin in the breakdown of the beans the elections come out and then you actually only get the goods from it. It was a very gnarly brain changer for me that after. I'M GONNA listen to multiple times through but I got the cookbook. It's called the plant. Oh and he did. A book called the plant paradox and it was essentially like this dude Dr Gunnery who happens to not be an adventist but work the Loma Linda System. which is like a really really high medical system interested in and he got on the board one of the only non adventist? He's so he doesn't doesn't have to be a believer. Yeah totally in. That doesn't happen often with that group. But he studies the blue zones pretty big time blue zones very all who don't know or the longest living zones in in the world like Okinawa area is one of them and then somewhere in the Mediterranean Mediterranean areas of mentoring. He's a big time proponent of even though there's not that exists exact one but he's like one of his statements is food exists. Good Clean Olive oil in your body because of polyphenols and they just like opened up at this whole interesting world where it's like. There's no perfect answer. The first half of the podcast is all what you shouldn't eat in the second half is things that you can eat okay. What's a few things that you shouldn't eat? That seemed like counter oftentimes actually like like I said he wasn't. I can't remember because it's been a week now. And we jumped in this podcast on the fly because Chris looked at my lunch and he's all right. What is that really burners on? You Know No. It's good but the biggest biggest one that stuck out to me whereas like hey actually bred by itself might not be as betty so there's people who are far more sick gluten free diet or a Vegan Diet because says okay like tomatoes super high electons was another one he said. Is that a nightshade thing. Maybe anything with seeds. That's it's like a fruit. He said. Okay it's another thing game change your mind blower. He's juicing is a surefire way to actually get fat. Well for sure. Sure yes but he said you WANNA use it right juice. It throw a juice away and pull all the pulp out any only the pulp. That's where all the goods are. Oh ooh so. It's getting all the good like fiber and all the fiber reverse juicing and the and and polyphenols which are pretty high. So it's like all things that happened in certain plants. Most most lettuces have more electons than you might realize. He said to stick stick to the group like fruit and Radicchio and those ones that are like more bitter Kale can Michael. I think I can't remember. I think he said Kale's pretty good but even so like basically what they do is they make your body inflame in some way or another. That was interesting. He said also. Like if you want. You'RE GONNA hate this one as a Paleo person. But he's like if I wanted to get rid of something like the people overeat it's proteins or protein is like one of the main things in aging us. Yes yeah you know. It's interesting that that is dead on. Because I think this is where most people get Paleo wrong right at the actual actual like since the beginning of the Paleo Diet now. I can't even remember who wrote the original book about it. But most literature revolving around Paleo actually advocates for just moderate protein. Yeah but I think that thirty grams a day I think because of the circles locals that those people run in which it happens to be tied into a fitness and a lot of cases right and a lot of lifting people over eat protein because they see it as a source for like quote unquote gains or big. Yeah or it's an easy win that fits into that Like the Paleo Vai. I believe it's just really easy for me to go and eat some protein and and feel like it's good for me but even like Like Mark Mark Sisson right. Who did did marks daily apple the blog and then now as one of the bigger advocates for Kito agrees that in terms of longevity eh lifespan and overall health? It's probably wise to not just with protein but caloric load overall like eat as little as possible caloric while being able to you know to function the way we need to function and I think it gets twisted because you take community. That's like a fitness base community. They would listen to that. And there are just like the probably working out too much and partner requiring like a ton of calories to do what they're doing and then even people who are moderately affiliated with the community. You're like Oh yeah this is healthy. Eat this like one. Gram of protein. Gene per pound of lean body has been like the standard since the bodybuilding times like n beyond and for actual athletes people would take it even further further but yeah for health probably not right and you do have to adjust based on how much you do fitness and exercise. He said the average person twenty to thirty thirty grams tops a day. And most people don't know that your internal organs in your stomach sheds and you reabsorb like twenty grams of protein from your stomach every single day. Oh Yeah you were dropping that knowledge super weird. That's really

So we're we're fortunate not stolen, but I do. And we do talk and something for investors to know that thank everybody knows it. But I think it's important to remind everybody that we could between how sides don't enterpreneurs because everybody will not this is a good time for in general in life, my beach, but. But I heard some horror stories, but I would say just one thing, but here repeats a bad way. These I like board members of panic, right? So trips said before so the board members Anik win shit hits the fan if something was wrong and just go into anecdote, which is never have full. Maybe also trying to optimize only for themselves. So I heard stories about investors. Well, of course as well. Who killed you can fundraising these women eight just to maximize it's not even material just not because they don't like not getting everything. So I heard of stories which sounds not to accept though to do. But you do hear about he's gonna stories and also playing political games companies trying as most of us do try not to be political just trying to get stuff done and work in a great environment. You don't want to run. So do not play games. I have to give, you know, more after two thousand five hundred apps as no one has ever said karma is a ditch on the poll cost. Welcome back. On the flip side of the table. That is not good and maybe more challenging bowl vendors for you managing the borders. The entrepreneur, how do you think about managing the border factory and there'd been some big lessons for you. You personally need to to really get the most out of the board as a whole and then the individuals themselves. I don't think I'm an expert in Bordman loadings, but share what I learned so far and is your next to your medical. Hopefully, we'll have more coming next month. I would say I one I would make sure to remind them what they tried to achieve right now all the way from like high level mission to even quarterly goals. And the thing is, you know, many investors and more members, you know, they say, many boards and companies, and it's it's trying to say, but some of the need to be reminded what exactly we're trying to achieve? I'm not saying that you will never forget what the company is doing. But maybe they might not remember what exactly your number because right now is so I would always make sure to remind them in board meetings. Also, just when we ask all have regular calls with most of my numbers. And I would just remind them what what are we working on right now? So that's number one. I also I would say always dinner and what I mean by that is actually one of my investments much from sandstone roads. Nice about it falling unless void beating Israel entire boards to Tel Aviv, and we make nature to our food day before the boy mating just two in Jerusalem. Just gone a touristic tippety, no discussion plan, and he asked him about it. Most of the value came outside of the boy. Most of the valley for him and for the rest of us came from India social interaction and immature of the management team as well there. So whatever you do dinner or two I would always plan actually do it every single time. Thanks a bit more time just to commit to kind of travel a bit longer than just three hours to avoid meeting. But you get way more value out of it than just sitting in the boardroom housing, the official formal discussion. I absolutely well massive. And I think max is incredible.

This reminds me Aaron when I was at CSIS. When we used to do, you know? Not saying this about CSIS today. I'm merely observing about my little program when I was in twenty years ago, but we did a lot of things for money. And for it says pick. And I remember, you know, and there was still some integrity. It's not they wouldn't do anything for money. But like, you know, people defense contractors would show up with a with a proposal, and you kind of look at it, right? And be like a lot of money. But it's not really all that interesting. And there was one contractor that had this proposal for t- twenty one the twenty first century truck, which probably was extremely important in a in a in a logistical sense. Particularly, you know, when you gonna rock how you know, like fuel efficiency, definitely, drove vulnerabilities. So my dad fuel come books. Yeah. It's it. It's not like a knock on the project. But like we all looked at it. And like zany went to work on the truck. And like no one wanted to work on the truck. So no matter how much I get into missiles. I I still find trucks boring, even if I accept that. They're important. Right. Right. Right. And. Yup. I think the requirements are important because if you think about how to target these things. So if you're on the other side is like the trucks are going to disperse. And so you need to take in the geography of both. The three places we're going to look at the ones with an intermediate range of China, which would be Okinawa Guam. In South Korea was how credible come to last. Because it's a fun case study, right? Well, we should cross Australia off the list because I sometimes hear people say Australia, but Darwin is, you know, the kind of the the northern part of Australia where you might conceivably base such things is basically ICBM range from China. I mean, there are places that are like under five thousand five hundred kilometers. But when you figure that you want to take advantage of the outback to like pull things back and drive around. And then you figure you wanna be able to target things in most of China, not just like a tiny little slice, the southern part, you know, the treaty. If you wanna put either nuclear or conventionally armed missiles in Australia to target, China the treaty you need to pull out of his new start. Not. I don't give anybody ideas. Jesus christ. I think I mean, look, I mean, they they know. Okay. And start is next. So you know, you can go ahead and kissed that one goodbye to. Yeah. Well, we can let the pod we. Hey, Joe, go guess, I actually the base. I think we should talk about wom in Okinawa which are real basing options. South Korea, which is a funny case, and we should probably throw in the Philippines, because occasionally see people think that we're going to be able to get our military bases back in the Philippines, which we can talk about. Sure. Okay. Which one should we do? I I want to start with Guam Guam presents the most straightforward challenge, which is is tiny. Yeah. I had a tweet work Guam small China has many missiles, therefore, you know, this is not a very hard targeting option for for for the Chinese..
