The composition of those gut bugs basically. They had a bacterial signature. Those similar to the strains of bacteria in in each and every single one of the centenarians but a lot of them had a very similar microbiome in one strain in particular stood out and it was type of bile acid.

Is i think he could be half a world champion in multiple sports. He's so talented. And the people i know who know him. All say the same thing that he is the most like athletic person and then we're starting to see it more and more that the cross disciplines is bananas. Do you feel like that's common in lot of the other women in the world cup that they're that talented as athletes. Not just this one thing. I think at this point they have to be to be successful. I think it's gotten so competitive in a really exciting way. You know the last two world cups we had there were. This is the first time. I've raised a world cup with field over one hundred. I think we had one hundred seven women on the start line offset which is so epic and also not that many women fewer than the men's category. So we're kind of like getting to equality of participation. Which i think is really exciting and a point where you can't say. Oh but it's less competitive in the women's. I think austin more we would say that the competition is often way more interesting to watch the women race. Yeah and with regards to you. Know kind of being a well rounded athlete. When i started mountain biking people weren't really doing strength. Training and i came from ski racing and transition about making and started really focusing on that sport and i hired a ski strength coach to be my strength coach and my mountain by coach. Hated it he said it makes you tired or sore like this is detracting from your ability to succeed but i think for me. At that age. I was riding on development team with like as riding mostly with guys and i couldn't keep up with them on the descents and i felt like part of it was my physical strength. It didn't have the upper body strength to manage the bike at high speed. And when i did core on. When i did kind of all these things that i was doing in my gym routine i would get on the bike and feel more confident and comfortable and powerful in like a had more control over the bike. So i like kind of diagnosed heels in instead i'll be doing strength training and moan behold. It's it's really become a focus and for me. It's been a challenge to continue to evolve in always feel like i'm one step ahead of everyone else. Hopefully doing new things or exciting things in my strength training but now you see across everyone at the top of the sport is doing it and doing it very seriously with well trained highly skilled people to help them.

"The direction of this country. Republicans are saying well. It states rights. Well actually it's not the constitution calls the opportunity for congress set standards and it did that because all of us are affected about who goes to congress. Out in oregon. We don't just have an interest in fair elections in oregon. We have an interest in fair elections across the country and for citizens in every other state. That's that's true as as well so at this moment when these agreed. Act sir current. It's absolutely imperative that we stand up to stop this assault on the right of americans to vote to mercy. President biden himself has vowed to protect voting rights at the federal level. What can the president do now. So the president can activates his judicial -partment department to challenge these laws in courts seek stays on their implementation but that's very slow difficult process He can also use his bully pulpit to rally the country to say this this is simply wrong and he can lay out the case. As as president. Johnson did over half a century ago that the time has passed to allow any not that it should ever been allowed to begin with but certainly the times that we cannot return to that era. I jim crow era of directed discrimination So his bully pulpit and is judicial department are tools that he can fully employ. Do you think he failed to do that this week. Not tweeting about or giving any of major speech. Push on your bill on the floor. The people act. Why did appreciate these savings. He put out in the meeting said that he held. I think this is kind of the first round of the battle. Look for many more rounds to come and we anticipate the president will deploy additional tools in in the in the coming back coming battles. So i'm not disappointed at this point but we do need full full partnership with you call mansions opposition to ending the filibuster racist. No i won't call it that because his impulses to say that this efforts these efforts should be bipartisan. and he's riot republicans across the country. Support these principles of defending the ballot box taking on gerrymandering stop billionaires from buying elections and so he's basically saying let's do everything possible to reach out and make this an inclusive bipartisan effort. I agree with that instinct and right now. We're still on that path. That is that Joe manchin put out a set of principles. I gave a lot of feedback to him. He's producing it legislative language. When we have that i anticipate that he and and every member will help him reach out again to republicans to say. Come come join us. And when that fails because most likely it will fail even mitch. Mcconnell the Minority leaders fierce opposition Then then we're going to have to have the fifty democrats sit down in a room and say okay. We pursued that vision of bipartisanship but we took an oath to the constitution. We have to defend these rights of all americans. How are we going to get it done. And then we'll have to look at restoring that vision that i referred to in which yes. The minority can delay. We've listened to them. We should give them the opportunity to make amendments a fair debate on the floor but then when that is done we have to find a path. Be able to pass this bill. Senator merkley i want to ask you about the climate crisis this week. Much of the pacific northwest faces record shattering. Temperatures thirty degrees or more above average national weather service weather. Prediction center tweeted wednesday. Record-breaking dangerous heat wave coming to the west over eighty sites or forecast to break daily high temperature records. Starting this weekend highs on sunday could approach an all time high of one hundred seven degrees fahrenheit in portland oregon where few people have air conditioning. This comes as lawmakers in washington. Continue to negotiate over the infrastructure. Bill the democrats say need to include major new funding to address the climate crisis. So senator merkley. You're not only an hot seat in washington dc. But when you go home clearly to oregon where to say the least it is hot if there's no climate there's no deal is what progressive democrats are saying. Do you agree you yourself have said this. How do you accomplish this. Yes so what. We're concerned about. And senator i held a press conference To dryness theme home no deal is that given that carbon dioxide is building so much heat and methane is building it so much heat in the atmosphere it's causing these hugely disruptive effects in referring to the heat in oregon. I can tell you. People are terrified coming fire season last last year in oregon with labor day fires in which all half a dozen towns were burned to the ground. I drove six hundred miles up and down the state and never got out of the smoke. A people are terrified about this. This heat and the accompanying drought. And it's not just an anomaly. It is a very well anchored trend. You compare the last thirty years the previous three years and you see massive drought across the west decrease in rainfall. Now and then you see significant heat increases and when it's an average over thirty years you can't blame it on any one one thing very dramatically different than the average over the hundred years in the nineteen hundreds so here we are with the opportunity with a president who believes we have to drive a bold fast transition from carbon dioxide and natural gas methane to electricity and renewable electricity. And there's a possibility that there's an infrastructure bill that set sail and when that ship set sail might leave a energy transforming infrastructure renewable energy infrastructure on the dock. And that's unacceptable. We cannot let that happen. So the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill and the reconciliation infrastructure bill. Which would address the climate crisis. Bali have to be welded together. I wanna ask you about the republicans voting against the january sex commission house speaker. Nancy pelosi expecting to announce now creation of a select committee to investigate the us capitol insurrection after republicans blocked that bill That would have created the bipartisan commission. You've thirty seconds. Yes here in the senate. They blocked even debating it. It's shameful when there is such an assault on the capital hadn't happened before hundred years. We need to understand every aspect of it should be done and bipartisan way. Republicans should voted one hundred percent with us. We want to thank you so much for being with us.

Do you remember how you answered when you were asked up. I answered that. I had not one time in my life considered that i made a choice or that i ever knew anything other than the attraction i felt towards women and so it was like a what a silly question and the person said. Can you imagine how silly it feels for me to have been asked the same exact thing which was the point. There you go. Yeah that's that's it exactly. And you know in jason question that people ask me. When did you know you were different. And i always enter that one the same way. Which is i never did. I really was aware of my in a sense. That was aware my full humanity and i was also aware that i'm not a man. I'm not a woman it is so i. If you've never experienced it.

"Is seen as an environmental crime have brought greenpeace a lot of attention over the years a ton of attention. But make no mistake folks. Not all of this. Attention is positive. This is true but let's not forget the greenpeace also active in the legal and regulatory spheres and have been a huge voice in pushing for tighter environmental regulation and oversight and like we said earlier. Just the kinds of things that you would associate probably automatically with when you when you think of greenpeace And sometimes these efforts Have been very successful And today the organization has a pretty small staff. Most of whom are volunteers and a lot of their funding comes from donations from individuals. So how do we separate kind of the fact and fiction and the controversy Three kind tiers of today's episode and greenpeace. Yeah it's a good question. Also as you can imagine greenpeace sees itself speaking truth to power right. These are folks who are. Nobody is involved in greenpeace to get rich. They are as you said volunteers. And they get into direct conflict with some of the world's most powerful institutions some of the biggest corporations that you may or may not have heard of as well as well as you pointed out that state level actors and so of course. This creates a lot of criticism. But it's not just from these institutions. You know what i mean. It's not just like planet villains having a problem with captain planet and the what do you call the planet. Here's shout out to hartman. Always that the short end of the stick but he did get a monkey. He did have among monkeys news. The guy's name was no gosh. There was kwami he was water. I'll gosh i'm. I'm really doing bad with my captain planet trivia but the monkey was adorable. you're right. The heart didn't really get a sense that that would it was power to make people like you know feel emotional. I guess so. You can change hearts and minds. I mean the hardest connected to the mind and if you can change hearts guys you can do anything so secretly. It was a mind control power all along. Yeah they just didn't want to spook everyone but the reason we're bringing up this captain planet. Comparison is because it's important to know that not all the people who criticize greenpeace over the years are like gazprom or something or the french military or something. There are people who have worked for greenpeace in the past that are no longer with the organization and have some pretty bluntly critical things to say about it. But because this is a loose-knit organization with several different types of causes a lot of the criticism tends to be issue specific so somebody might say for instance in just a made up example. Someone might say. Look i am totally with greenpeace. We need to end wailing now. But they're acting crazy when they're against nuclear power clean. Energy is the way of the future. You know what i mean. So they might not through the entire organizational baby out with the bathwater but again they're critics are not all evil in two thousand sixteen one hundred seven hundred and seven nobel prize.

And the most ever a single mon and the overall surgeon march seventy one percent spike of february's figures illustrate the scope a this ongoing challenge that biden faces as he seeks to enforce border while overhauling the nation asylum rules. And i was curious if kentucky. I know that they're seeking states. That will take in some of these unaccompanied minors as the really grappling with finding a place for these miners to stay. And do you know is kentucky going to be one of those states you said. It's a red states. I wouldn't anticipate that i know. I don't think it's in the pipeline for ohio. But that's my first question for you so there's not anything really in place for us to to take on anybody. We have three refugee resettlement agencies. That could help in this process but there is. I don't think there's anything set up. We do have a democratic governor. We have one democratic congressman. Who has been a champion of immigration reform in rational immigration policies. I wanna you know very quickly just touch upon this this narrative of the crisis at the border. There's a surge there's an invasion. You know these are. These are words that were used often in the previous administration. They've been used you know throughout our history because we've always had a had a history of kind of fear mongering when it comes to emigrants. They're criminals are coming to take your jobs. They're bringing disease which we of course all and upticks a huge uptake in anti asian violence in harassment. Because of covid in our you know president was saying things like Flew in china virus which resulted in directly right.

It's crazy weight welterweight championship of the world. Feel it's so crazy. How like men in general and not all men are probably varies. The labor in six you guys know about the sports and you know football and positions in you know like an interception. You know stuff like and i'm like what am they're sitting watching it for gaming. I'm like okay. That's a touchdown. Thank us all all baseball. Oh yeah what's the to the ring girls and all of them when you guys talk about fashion college shit right. Oh you got your photos. I see an expensive fucking leather hand. Crafted is made by three children. Or whatever it's like fucking real horsehair just a bitch wrote lv on fucking piece and so for like nine million dollars as bullshit but to no curated this shit from the best cows and fucking look at the fuck fucking bag. My gloves got some good letter. Said locale i know some of them they they make them with the hair. Like the horsehair in we'll plug this radius. Ask different types because they won't allow that because you could shift it right. That's where you come with your different ounces of glows 'cause they're they're no more as a as a punter glaciers glove right so like for example like this own right now so i brought one glove that i have so you see this padding. This is what eighteen twenty ounce and. i think. I know you've got some molecule with right This is the love. I would uses to hit on this. A sixteen ounce. Right goes all the way so this is the glove. I would use to be on the bag. I would have hit with and our practice with and they got to be more patty right. Yeah so like read so usually when you train you'll go with six or the other hand thumb. Yeah so do you see how. So watch if you'd loop loop the loop the bottom so we could feel it so now. When you have your hand in there and you close the right hit hit the top relate that hit the feel the padding right so when you're when you're training you're supposed to be training with usually with eighteen to twenty ounce gloves years. They're heavier on you. Then you'll have extra. There's some the have like wait till you can put your on your wrists so you when you're going at the bag on your sparring. Whatever you're building up more muscle right and you're building more muscle memory and these protect your hands while you're while you're practicing then you're just like while you're while you're actually doing any training and you're able protect your hands because that's what you need what you're fighting right because without that you can't do shit now when you're fighting you're allowed to use eight ounce gloves for eight gloves are punching glove. They don't have that much. Patty you feel more knuckle was at the c. I brought you guys to see the hit. The jury we we talking about so that love right now that you're showing right now. That looks more like a a workout with oblivious okay sparring is very important because that's how you practice that's so you want to protect both sides. Want to present your hands. And you want to protect the other fighter. They want these at all spines to get better. You have more how you get better meeting. let's go back to. My therapies is about longevity resource about protection right okay. 'cause every every sparring session needs like a car crash. So then that's how they come to me through the through the therapies. That right there so now back to the gloves so these these are the gloves that i push. These are the hit. The bag okay. Just knows wrigley bag loved these that you got here really nice. They got some really good padding on overall stuff right there but those those that i got right there those are you know the ladies that i got him in pink black red bra these others and does go at fifty nine hundred nine and those go to just hit the bag just to lose some weight. Pablo those right there. Go at sixteen ounces so we can get them all the way down to ten ounces right okay so then on the other hand the ones you were talking about that Right there would love that those with the my inspiration right so at the end of the day. That's what is sanctioned through all these boxing communities the the commissions so each state has a commission and they sanction certain gloves the the ones that. You're talking about that. That goal at the enemy. They go at six real the real light rule but boxing. Here we're seeing on boxing topic. Here they go as As as as six So the ones. I brought here to show. You are the ones that they would wear now. The difference with these is that there's less padding areas but at the end of the day they believe there are at these are at six ounces more laced a different one but they're laced because obviously always fighting gloves but different weight. Classes go with different different gloves. The lightweight would wear this glove right here. See the difference between the put that on put that one on an in. There's a heavyweight glove would go and sixteen hours. Sixteen answers will this right. Here is is a bag love now. Let me show you the same weight. That's someone that's one hundred seven pounds. Which way right there that go to a hundred and forty seven. I believe one hundred and forty dollars welterweight yet This electrolyte we welterweight. Wants forty seven. Forty four okay. So yeah anything under one forty seven. That's what that's what they were whereas these right there. That's so so the heavyweight whereas those right there and that's that's the difference between size of fight night love now. These other ones here. Like i said these are backlogged. Ju just just to lose some weight and stuff like that and those going. You're going to go in with something like that. Yeah yeah yeah. It's a big difference is a big difference with the padding his. Ask so so when you're talking about you know remember that motto deal. It's.
"one hundred seven" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Q&A
"I think with covid nineteen. And i'm wondering in general can someone who has had cova nineteen Be an organ donor. So the person will have to be recovered from cohen. That all donors tested for covid. Nineteen anyone who had active covid nineteen would not be used as a donor and in fact. It's important to make the phone. There have been no recorded cases of covid transmitted dump from donor to recipient from transplantation. But as dolan's head. Kobe neighbor covered. Yes and even living donors. If they've had cohen recover can Can be living donors as well. Let's good information to have. Tell us about the need for donated organs. How many individuals are out there waiting. How many transplants are we talking about a year where the numbers look like A nationally and at mayo clinic. Yeah it's important to understand even though we've seen a rise in donation It's still not enough and right now. There's over one hundred seven thousand people. Waiting some type of organ transplantation ratting a new person to the list every nine or ten minutes And unfortunately about seventeen people die every day. Because there's not enough oregon's yet available for transplantation So even though we're doing great to get the message out there there's still more that we can. We can do while that is amazing. That really puts it in perspective. That means that likely that someone at that. I know that my neighbors know our that. Our listeners know is either waiting for a transplant or has passed away while waiting for a transplant. That's pretty significant david. Tom let me a little bit about what qualifies someone to be an organ donor. Do you have to be in a certain state of health to be able to donate your organs. So that's a good question. I mean for deceased donor transplant. In almost anyone can be. Don't rowing donors are screened in so we certainly urge everyone to registered via donor and make your wishes known. There are a lot of misconceptions out there that maybe i'm too old via donor. But that's not the case You know with with livers sometimes use livers. They're eight years old or nine years old as long as they're in good shape and good vibes. We can use those donation. Also tissue and corneas can be donated as well The average person donating an organ deceased donor organ a can save lives up to eight people and also they can improve the lives of two seventy five people with tissue and cornea donations as well. So you can make a difference. You can make an impact. And so. I'd certainly courage everyone to register to be a donor and and then it's taken from there to be living donor a little bit different living donor. You do have to be in good shape And not have significant medical problems and those are screened as well david shots about registering to be a donor. I know in the state of minnesota. I checked something when i got a new drivers license. Is that true in every state. Is that how you declare that you want to be a donor by on your id or driver's license. Yeah there's a couple of ways you can do it at the dnb at the department of eagles when you renew your license Many states don't license renewal may be far and in between us ours years and so there are a couple of websites..

It or antibodies are not are not as effective in. We think that we also it might actually escape. Detection of those killer t. cells with it and the other party system and they they circulate around your body looking for infected cells. So step one. Is you read the back viruses. Even getting into your cells step. That's the antibodies and unfortunately these mutations disguise the virus and so the that are can't attack him and then the second thing that happens is they come in they infect yourselves in the cells become start by surround you to kill those cells off and so That's what our our our key cells do. Our b cells do remembers all the We've got a bad cell there.

"one hundred seven" Discussed on The GrowthTLDR
"Why did you start docket. Like what was the kind of story enter in the company and has your growth been surprisingly accelerated due to the year. We've had so yes to the second question. But i i have been in indianapolis. My entire career been technology mind tire career. I've been a junior developer at an early stage startup of ten people. I've been mid-level manager at a high growth company exact target and i've been a c. Level executive of publicly traded company in the one consistent thing through all those experiences no matter the company culture or the position i was in it felt like to high percentage of the meetings. I was in felt like a waste of time right. Just felt like they were often covering the same conversations the same topics over and over again and so <hes>. As i started looking around for what. I really wanted to do from a career perspective. I really wanted to build a company. I've built lots of products built. Let's teams <hes>. And i really wanted to focus all my energy investment into starting something from the ground up and this just seemed like with the technology we have in place today in with these before. Covid the slow move to video conferencing and this was a prime time to really bring the technology to the forefront in a collaborative way and really make this problem. Go away for for the average user so we started that and we saw immediately you meetings or something that people have an almost visceral reaction to when you talk about them and so it's a universal problem and we saw that immediately when we put your just simple website a little bit of of social of campaigns to drive awareness and it was immediate people were attracted to the solution started signing up starting using it and then when the pandemic hit obviously you had this huge focus on the need to find these collaboration tools. These tools now suddenly every conversation. You're having is a meeting right to make sure that you're being as productive inefficient as you can. Because it's very obvious on on a remote setting if you're wasting people's time and much more so than in local setting in fact so we've seen that huge ramp up and that lift and we early on identified zoom as a strategic partner for us. We wanted to make sure that we were in lockstep with what their road roadmap wasn't what they were doing. And that's paid huge dividends for us. Yeah i really wanted to get into. Because i think at marketplace is going to spawn simply the successful companies coming back to a couple of things on docket. You mentioned. I think you had fifteen thousand users and you mentioned kind of product lead so looked of dive into how you got your first kind of thighs and customers and then just get into how you the founder strategically thought about your go to market from the outset in how you thought about product lead so i kind of dive into customers or users <unk>. High did you get from zero to like five customers or your fifteen thousand users in such a short amount of time for productivity growth company the user acquisition just has to be incredibly cost efficient right so we started out even before we had a website we started generating content that we would host on the website around just meeting management topics that focused around have productive meetings different types of meetings. That type of thing so seo is our kind of long term play. They're just generate content generate <hes>. Organic users to the site and that's been working very well for us <hes>. another aspect of what. We're we do. Obviously is meetings are naturally collaborative in nature so if one person finds dockets signs up starts using it for their team meetings. The other people in the meeting notice that the meetings of ran much better. There are artifacts out of docket agendas. Recaps that are branded docket. That are sent to people and they naturally click start signing up and start using it themselves so we have a very high percentage of of users that come through that viral aspect of the product <hes>. Outside of that we did start playing with social ads in social campaigns. Just to see if we could drive interest and that was immediate it was. It's very easy to track people to this solution. Because the problem is almost universal. I think it was one of the finest bloom talked about the fact that they would if they had to create another company they would never create a company that didn't have inherent virality the the product like. They've they've learned the lesson that if the product itself is inherently viral things become a lot easier thing what. What's actually hard is not growth. It's monetization into a couple of things that that i was reading. Great tweet from david stocks just by sas companies and that also companies should try to think about teams and versus users. And this is like a good <hes>. Thought exercise here and just hearing how you think about it because meetings could be a individual user tool and you could upgrade based on number of meetings. I actually don't know what your price is finite or you could try go for like large teams in large companies. How do you think about that as a user team till we <hes>. Initially focused on the end. User your individual pain and our roadmap in our overall growth strategy is moved from individual team to business enterprise right. I mean just have have the natural growth that you're going to see from adoption of of the product itself lead into the roadmap and support large larger organizations. And so with that the way we've built docket as there's limitation on the number of meeting participants there's no limitation on the number meaning. You can have in the free version. It's use it as you can as best as you can to get more and more people onto the application and then we have a features in the first paid tier which is really for the small teams to help drive that conversion into that paid tear. You get more value out of it as you begin. Use it in team aspect you get some more consistency around the usage of the product and then the outcomes of your meetings are more productive overall <unk>. Drives natural adoption. What are the interesting things that i love to get your thoughts nece. 'cause you're innocent under space <unk>. I'm sure always trying to figure out your price packaging. So we had joe thomas. He is the co founder of loom. That was some time ago. Actually when they were earlier stage and they actually were going at a similar path. 'cause we were early. Adopters dot used loom at spread within a company. And it was they were basically trying to get as many individual used products as possible many users and they were then trying to upgrade your team based features recently at they switched the price and to monetize of the core value which is just anyone who's creating a video you can get five minutes or you have to upgrade to get any amount of minutes and so it seems like you're kind of going on the path. They initially went down. Which is like the is the core value for me actually immediate and then you wanna try to price team based kind of features and did you ever think about what kind of business it would be. Just kinda monetize the core value which is the need for the user. Absolutely it is one of those that we're still very early stage and we plan to rate quite a bit on pricing and packaging to learn. Because you you have hypothesis is you start out. But you really don't know <hes>. We're seeing <hes>. Good conversion rates <hes>. On the paid tier as is but there is a large opportunity to to experiment with that especially as we move especially from a small teams into the large organizations where we now have organizations that have hundred seats four hundred seats. That type of thing is what's the value to the organization as a whole it had to be priced to make sure you're giving the premium

Branson Beats Musk in Human Hyperloop Test
"A week ago a man and a woman got into a metal pod sat down on vegan leather seats and strap themselves for a trip. Unlike any other the pod was then levitated by magnets and shot through vacuum tube at one hundred seven miles per hour in roughly six seconds. Talk about a wild ride and it was actually an historic first. The two brave souls are employees of virgin hyperloop and they were the first humans to test. The new technology virgin hyperloop focuses on the high speed transportation concept billionaire. Richard branson's virgin group is a minority investor before testing the system with humans virgin hyperloop conducted more than four hundred unmanned tests. Hyperloop has been called the future of transport. The systems are designed to be giant low pressure tubes floating pods or suspended by magnets and carry passengers from point. Eight point at theoretical speeds of up to seven hundred miles per hour. Here's how it works. The pod network uses magnetic levitation two sets of magnets both repel the pod in the tube and help move it forward and the vacuum system used to help accelerate to high speeds is similar to the system. You use to send your documents to the teller at your bank. drive through. Popular mechanics explains inside the pod. G forces were more than three times that of an airplane but the passengers said the ride was smooth. New york times reported ultimately groups like virgin hyperloop hoped to deploy the technology to transport people and cargo. The speed would reduce the time. It takes to get from los angeles to san francisco to less than an hour. The times report says that's faster than a direct flight. When the hyperloop debuts it will be the first truly new transportation technology and more than one hundred years the independent reports branson isn't the only billionaire dabbling in hyperloop technology. You may have heard of a fellow named elon musk. He's credited with conceptualizing the technology nearly a decade ago and he is boring company. Boring as in boring tunnels underground has a test tunnel california that it's using to test. Its hyperloop and other technology. Each year musk's spacex holds a hyperloop pod competition where university students compete to make prototypes of high speed transportation. Pods last year. Students from the university of munich won the competition there. To um hyperloop pod set a new speed record for the competition of nearly three hundred miles per hour a longer track could help teams reach even higher speeds. Musk says virgin. Hyperloop is already designed to route between london. Borough branson says the uk route would be quicker and cheaper than the high speed rail system being put in now. The independent reports and richard geddes co founder of the hyperloop advanced research partnership believes that. There's an opportunity for a hyperloop. System linking abu dhabi and dubai in the united arab emirates. For now the hyperloop is still a theoretical transport system with more than a dozen companies working on bringing it reality and when you have competitive billionaires behind for bragging rights about being first to market things have a way getting done
Tesla Giga Shanghai’s Model 3 production run-rate already hitting 91% of ambitious 2021 targets
"Today we're going to go through a detailed forecasts for q four delivery and production numbers for tesla. The reason we're doing this today is because we finally have critical piece of information that can help inform this forecast and that is gigafactory shanghai production numbers from the china passenger car association so earlier this week we had talked about the model three sales numbers in china for october. But we didn't yet have the production numbers those have now been released by the a and they are very strong. I think even better than the most bullish forecast that. I have seen so october production out of your factory. Shanghai was reported to be twenty two thousand nine hundred and twenty nine model threes so put the context around just how strong that number is. Let's hop into my forecasting spreadsheet. If you haven't this yet just orientate you. Each row is a different period of time and then in each group of columns here. I have production numbers so i have total production fremont production shanghai production and then i break that down to a weekly level and level those production rates on a weekly and daily level are incredibly important. Because sometimes tesla has known downtime. So looking at monthly or quarterly production doesn't really give us the full picture that weekly daily dust and then on the color scheme here gray numbers are known those have been reported by tesla or figured out by us. With high high competence. Orange numbers are also high competence but are based off of reports out of china. Blue numbers are estimates kind of fill in the between the two and then yellow. Our future forecasts are at so getting back to the shanghai numbers. Then if we look tober that twenty two thousand nine hundred twenty nine production number divided over the four point. Four weeks in october yields a weekly production rate of five thousand one hundred seventy eight model threes per week from shanghai. This is much greater than the twenty eight hundred and fifty produced each week over the course of q. Three however if we flip back to september actually got a bit of a hint. That numbers like this. Were on the way from tesla. So total september dessel only produced about twelve thousand two hundred vehicles that was actually down slightly from august and july. But what people may have missed. Is that tesla. Actually had shutdown gigafactory shanghai from september twentieth. To september thirtieth. So if you take those days out tesla actually produced about forty five hundred model threes per week in september over the two point seven production weeks where they weren't shut down so it looked like tesla's kind of leveling off production at about twelve thousand per month but actually took a huge step forward in september in terms of the production rate. We see that then continue into october and even accelerate while the monthly production takes a massive step forward from twelve thousand all the way up to almost twenty three thousand because there was no downtime in october so this production rate almost fifty two hundred per week. October has huge implications for the balance of q four if we even just extrapolate that rate tesla's at now that ends up being sixty eight thousand model threes produced from shanghai in q four their few reasons. We've seen this massive jump in production rate from shanghai first off. They've obviously just ramped up their production rate. One of the ways. They've been able to do that though is by adding another shift to shanghai. Depending on what estimate you're looking at that seems to have added about thirty to fifty percent of production hours from employees so that's filled out the production capacity and then we've also seen tesla star utilizing. The lithium iron phosphate batteries from cat l. And if they were battery constrained before this seems to have done a lot to alleviate that at this level so as far as i know there is not going to be any significant downtime in q. Four but definitely if you have any information on that let me know if there is not and we continue this rate at sixty thousand but tesla has been ramping up production from september through october. So there's no certainty that this production rate is going to hold through the rest of the quarter rather than continuing to increase. We also have a report from tasmanian today. Which has heard from a source that quote the current model three production has now surpassed fifty seven hundred units per week and quote. We've also been talking now for quite a while about how you four could be. The start of production for the shanghai made model. Y the latest. We've heard on that. Is that might actually happen in november so we could even see some production model y contributing to these keefer numbers so if we flip back to the forecasting sheet here and we look at my forecast. I'm gonna actually forecast even a little bit lower than that rumored production rate from tasmanian. I'm gonna project about a three four percent increase for the next couple of months here in shanghai. I think this is relatively conservative. But this could change. If there are periods of downtime or if the model y ramp for some reason impacts the model three production rate but i do think this is pretty reasonable and again hopefully a little bit conservative for shanghai so for november production weekly. I'm at about fifty three hundred and fifty and then for december a couple hundred more about fifty five hundred and fifty. That gets me to you again. About twenty three thousand four november and about twenty four thousand five hundred four december for total q for production out of shanghai at about seventy thousand five hundred vehicles. Now obviously that's pretty high that would be higher than tesla stated production capacity and accused three report which they listed at two hundred and fifty thousand. But we've already seen them beat that production rate throughout the entire month of october if the numbers are accurate that october production rate already analyzes to about two hundred and seventy thousand vehicles so they've already demonstrated rate above that listed capacity for what it's worth if tesla can bump that production capacity up to fifty seven hundred for november and december. That would add another couple thousand to this forecast so these numbers for shanghai have big implications for q four and for next year. But let's stick with four. Let's rounded out by looking at fremont production so that we can work into the total for kiefer and for the year in q. Three tesla produced about one hundred and forty five thousand vehicles in total. About thirty seven thousand. Five hundred of those came from shanghai so that we as a little over one hundred seven thousand two had to have come from fremont if we divide that by the thirteen point one weeks on the quarter. That's about eighty two hundred per week beyond that. We know that tessa produced just under seventeen thousand as an ex. Those obviously came from fremont that we've just over ninety thousand model y model three from fremont produced and q. Three as we get more granular. It became more speculative but based on vins and other information out there. I have estimated that cute to model production was about eleven thousand vehicles out of fremont and the q. Three was about thirty three thousand leaving the balance then for model three so q four based on the prior ramp up that we had seen from the model three. I'm estimating that tests. I can bump that model wipe production up to about fifty three thousand in q. Four so about twenty thousand more vehicles. Which if my q two and q three breakdowns are close. It'd be similar to increase that. We saw quarter to quarter there. If we look back at how the model three ramp progressed. The should be doable and q. Two twenty eighteen tessa produced about twenty eight thousand mile threes and then in q three two thousand eighteen about fifty three thousand so actually showing even a less sharp increase for model y than what we previously seen for the model three despite tesla having a lot more experience now and the model being a similar vehicle to the model three so again i think this is pretty reasonable and hopefully even bit conservative as for model three we have tended to see that production rate fall and then sort of flat line as model. Why has ramped up. I think one of the questions. There is okay that a demand thing less demand for the model three the model y ramps or is that a battery supply constraint where the model three production is held back due to batteries being shifted and being used for the monowai. I assume it's a battery supply constraint. But if it's demand i think tesla has pulled the levers here with the refresh plus q four is always seasonally stronger and as somebody that has ordered a model three this quarter and has having to wait significantly longer than i would prefer. There certainly doesn't seem to be any demand shortage. So i think the only constraint here is likely to be batteries for that reason and because we're already forecasting growth for the model y. I'm not gonna forecast much of an increase in production for the model three here. Only about one percent to about fifty eight thousand from fremont key four that puts our combined fremont model y and fremont model three at about one hundred eleven thousand for the quarter to me. That feels pretty good because again in q. Three that number was about ninety thousand but if we look back to tussled q three earnings report specifically about fremont they said quote production should reach fo capacity toward the end of this year or beginning of next year end quote. The production capacity for model three and model y out of fremont is five hundred thousand per year. So that's one hundred twenty five thousand per quarter if they didn't ninety thousand in q. Three and they're trying to target one hundred twenty five thousand production rate at the end of q. Four well if we just assume a linear ramp up throughout the quarter we can just use the midpoint of those numbers and that would give us a hundred and twelve thousand five hundred for four now on one hand. They said they hoped to reach that production rate by the end of the quarter or early in q. One but on the other hand the ninety thousand production number that we used from q. Three is the total key. Three production rate. It was probably higher towards the end of the quarter. So with all that. Said i think one hundred and eleven thousand is right in the ballpark of where tesla could end up for fremont for a wyan model. Three in q four. Oh we have left. Then as s and x tesla's the fremont capacity at ninety thousand there. That's twenty two thousand five hundred per quarter. We've also seen updates this quarter the model s. price declines the range in the model x. has been increased so even though tesla has been for the last few quarters running at about fifteen thousand per quarter for s and x and peaking at about eighteen thousand last four. I'm expecting a decent jump here from an xm. Forecasting nineteen thousand. But i do think there's potential that it could be even a bit higher. Let's just take a quick look here and then see how this all looks visually. And then we'll wrap up with the final numbers so here we have our weekly production rates. Each quarter for in blue fremont an orange shanghai and in both cases these are excluding known shutdown that we've had from corona virus or factory retooling. Whatever the case may be so for q. Three shanghai ended up excluding that final ten days at about thirty two hundred per week and here for four. We haven't projected to jump up about fifty three hundred per week but it fits pretty nicely with the linear uptrend that we have seen and again in september already tussles producing at about forty five hundred per week so it seems extremely reasonable and it's not unprecedented in the past we have seen in fremont tesla increased their production rate quarter over quarter by almost two thousand vehicles per week thousand one. We talked about before with the model three ramp up so similar thing here. Then for fremont we're going from about eighty two hundred per week in q. Three up to about ninety nine hundred per week in q four about seventeen hundred more per week but again definitely not unprecedented looking back at tesla's history are at so with all that context. We'll hop back into our spreadsheet here and all these numbers combined give me a cue for production total fremont and shanghai both of two hundred thousand five hundred and seventy eight vehicles. I know that might sound like a lot. But again tesla lists their production capacity at eight hundred and forty thousand in the q three earnings report and while the production rate doesn't necessarily equal and sawed capacity we've actually seen them exceed that installed capacity listing in shanghai in october. So if we add that two hundred thousand to what tesla's already produced so far this year that would get them to five hundred and thirty thousand vehicles produce for twenty twenty as for deliveries and whether tessa will deliver more vehicles than they produce in q four. I think there's a couple of factors there. We have really low days of inventory. So tesla's not working with a lot of stock but on the other hand that they are increasing the localization of their production which helps lower the required amount of stock. Because you just have less shipping time. So i'll have to spend a little bit more time thinking about that. I think it'll be relatively close to production and with what tesla has delivered so far year to date. They need a little over one. Hundred and eighty thousand vehicles delivered in q four to meet five hundred thousand for the year. And i think they'll exceed that by a pretty significant margin so i'll spend more time thinking about how deliveries might vary from production. But i guess for how you can put me down for two hundred thousand deliveries for key for
Closing Out the NBA Bubble With Malika Andrews
"So Melita. Today is the day where are we reaching you right now for the listener if you could describe what's around you what you're looking at potentially I suppose the last time. I'm in my hotel room at the Grand Destino. Coronado Springs. Hotel. And this has been my my room, my home, my apartment for the last one, hundred, seven days Melita Andrews has been inside the NBA bubble as long as any other member of the media. It feels like moving I'm down to the bits and bobs that are no longer fun like the half eaten bag of Doritos did I want to decide what I want to do with and the? Is that I have to decide really to these need to stay or go but I only have about two hours until I am getting picked up. And then you will be back among us out years. So Melita as. The most successful covert related experiment in America comes to an end. What's the current status of the bubble? Now are people still abiding by all the protocols yesterday officially, the bubble quote unquote burst and it means a green yellow and red zone which coordinates to the colors of our credentials. So previously where I was staying was all green, which was the first tier, wear players, referees, select media, members, coaches, MBA staff were, and those folks got tested every day when the Lakers won that became more squishy because the governor's owners or whatever you want to call them like Guinea boss who was in yellow were able to come down onto the court, the agents and family members and thinking of folks like rich Paul. Who had watched the championship in yellow were then to come into the Green Zone to party all night long with the Los Angeles Lakers this hotel opens to the public tomorrow while so we're literally the last people in here. There are maybe half a dozen MBA staff trying to make sure that. is getting figured out I actually went to the package to check for one more package and it was like last packages for Lebron James Lacks packages for Jimmy Butler last. For, Andrews. Melinda Adams all lined up sort of all in one area. So. Melinda when the bubble burst yesterday, my producer said. Oh Melita. You are not going to be ready. And she's right I'm not. What Melinda was referring to what she was warning you about is what it's like on the outside he yeah. Well, because everything when I first got here, there were a lot of folks who joked. When you got out of quarantine you served your time Oh, your your time is up. And that always bothered me mainly because when you look at the prison systems in the United, states that has been a hotbed for corona virus in many cases because people are in such close quarters and so. They couldn't be more different than the discomfort that folks who are incarcerated here in the united. States are going through as they're battling covid and what that means. People keep asking me here I get texts from my family I get it from the people who are checking us out. Are you so excited to go home I think when I came down here for months ago there was a real hope that I had that it would sort of be like this machine I would go in, get spit back out on the other side and things would be different. Country Standpoint of where we at with CORONA VIRUS AND That anxiety. Is. Still there.
Political Ad Nauseam
"As much as campaigns want to keep spending secret federal law actually requires TV stations around the country to disclose all the political ads, the campaigns by and those TV ads account for something in the ballpark of sixty percent of campaign ads. Spending a lot of the rest is stuff like Google and facebook ads at those companies actually don't have to disclose as much information about the ads. So today we're going to focus on. TV. Spending the majority of the spending. So think of the United States as a giant game board to campaigns walk around the board they put some of their ad money down this part. Of the country a little bit more over here, and the way they put that money down tells us what places they think are most important for winning the election. If you're looking just at the state level, the bronze medal goes to Wisconsin Sixty, four, million dollars, worth of TV ads they're not surprising. Wisconsin was one of those states that trump flipped from the democratic column back in Two Thousand Sixteen Silver Medal Pennsylvania with one hundred, seven, million dollars worth of TV ads also not surprising Purple State with twenty electoral votes and in first place with one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars America's favorite election meltdown waiting. Oh Florida, my beloved Florida. Now, this is just are beginning calculation. We're going to dig in more, but there are lessons to learn just looking at the big picture the big campaign game board. Yes. So so take Florida this is not a monolithic place. You're going to have super republican areas like the panhandle and then big democratic areas around places like Miami and you might imagine that the most. Cost effective thing is for the Republicans to completely pull out of the democratic strongholds and vice versa. But in fact, neither political party is doing that the whole state is getting bombarded with ads from both sides Daniel. Butterfield. From the Super PAC PRIORITIES USA she says it can start to turn into something like an arms race. So when you see your opponent spending money in a market, it really raises The question of should I be spending money there to to keep up area competitive and if you want to understand why political spending just keeps going up, it's at least partly because of his arms race if your opponents bins more in, Tampa you have to spend more in Tampa which in turn makes the cost of ads in. Tampa that much more expensive. Next thing you know you blue one. Hundred thirty, three, million dollars in Florida. Danielle says, the arms race thing is not just irrational fear. There's a real electoral cost to waving the white flag in a particular area. If you're in an ad market and your opponent clears out, that is great news for you. You have the airwaves to yourself. Your advertising goes a lot further in terms of impact than if you have to opponents that are. Driving opposite messages is there like a particular tipping point to that that sort of campaign folks like you gotTa. Spend the twenty percent otherwise. Like what counts as as not being drowned out. Good? Yeah. There is actually a lot of areas some data behind like what is the particular percentage that is required? It's I'd say that's probably more of a secret sauce that I wouldn't necessarily WanNa name on this podcast for you know that numbers, you're just tell me. I I. Know. Roughly what percentage I think is useful is, is it twenty three percent? You got it. But okay. So fine lots of money being spent in Florida but this is not a very specific answer to our question who is the most expensive voter we want to be more granular, which is why we got her hands on a more precise data set. Thank you advertising analytics. This data set is GonNa let zoom in on every single television market in the entire country. So for example, we know that forty million dollars has been spent in the Orlando Daytona. Beach Melbourne market. Compare that to the grand rapids, Kalamazoo Battle Creek Michigan market where it's twelve million dollars and sure there's more people in Orlando but still, how are the campaigns arriving at exactly forty million and exactly twelve million to help answer that we brought in some help Michael Beach. CEO. Crushing Media Michael Runs an advertising analytics company now, but he has worked in the past for the presidential campaigns of George W Bush John McCain Mitt Romney, and the reason we wanted to talk to Michael is his whole job. is to figure out where companies or sometimes political campaigns should place millions of dollars. Worth of ads Michael has all this fancy proprietary software. If you're an advertiser, he can tell you whether you should be focusing your ads on like Republicans, with Minivans are Democrats ride motorcycles or neither. He's got all these different attributes in his computer thousands of attributes for. Anything from certain partisanship to likelihood to buy a Ford truck into those do those specific categories correlate. Yes and no it like it's pretty geographic if you're looking at northeast, Ohio or you're you know. You're in Alabama in the Senate race. that. Wouldn't be a probably a good signal. Reich is like. As owner everyone drive structure. Now, the reason we went to Michael is because we thought it might be interesting to look at how many dollars were being spent on any given swing voter swing voters in theory are people who might be influenced by a political ad. The problem is it is very hard to pin down exactly how many of these people are out there but Michael Software can at least take a stab at it what is GonNa do is go through all these data sets to first identify how many likely voters there are in a particular TV market and then identify which of those has even the tiniest probability of changing their vote and a lot of this calculation is just sifting out the diehards. If you are somebody who voted in the last five, Democratic primaries were every year you donate to the R. N. C. You are out. But maybe your party affiliation switched a couple of times. Maybe you're a first time voter that may put you in this bucket the basically using generic party model and generic it's party not not candidate. Driven in other words, we're estimating voters chances to swing between Democrat and Republican as opposed to trump and biden specifically. But there's still does give us a way to compare across TV markets and when you re ranked the country based on dollars spent per swing voter the markets are not in Florida. In fact, the top five ad markets are all in Pennsylvania and number one on that list where campaigns are spending around ninety dollars per likely swing voter. Is My home television market the region in western Pennsylvania in and around Erie Pennsylvania. Okay. So Kenny you grew up there like what is it? What is the what are we talking about just to be clear I grew up in Meadville which is south of Erie, but it's in the market and like yeah, this is a region with a lot of manufacturing jobs these jobs have been leaving. It's predominantly white its having the. Same kind of brain drain problem that a lot of the other parts of the so-called rust belt are having. But look like I don't know anything about who a potential swing voter would be in the Erie television market. This is why we have Michael's fancy software. It can help us understand who that is. What can we know about the Eerie Market area? How does it compare to the rest of the country? Like who's there? It opened up my magic machine here. Michael Punches Eerie plugs in a few numbers so it's running. Then he opens up a tab that lets us compare the Erie population as a whole to just the likely swing voters. So now I look at in. Eerie. For instance, the average adult is fifty three years old if you just take the whole population in the market. Target, audience if you said. swing likely to turn out is forty seven other words. Michael's machine is telling us that the average swing voter is is six years younger than the average, their forty, seven years old, and the other incredible thing about Michael's machine is that it's also able to spit out this whole media plan for how to reach those people. The machine can name the single TV show watched by the most swing voters. Each week that show in the Eerie area is the OT on Fox football shows or wrap up of the day's games. That'd be fair. that is one of the most watched shows in the entire country. But the numbers do show that in terms of efficiency like sports would be a pretty good way to get your ad in front of a decent chunk of swing voters in Erie Pennsylvania Espn you can reach sixty percent on eerie and a week. Again, this target in this market if the secret to understanding what the campaigns are thinking is to learn where the most money is being spent per swing voter. That place
Interview with Dave Collins
"Hi Dave. Welcome to function tennis podcast. I'll Fabio holiday I'm doing great thanks aircraft heavy on and with doubles being such a key part of the game at side the pro world in the pro world just great avid doubles expert on the show and learn a bit about more you untouchables. So maybe you can start by ten the listeners just a bit about you where you're located what you're up to right now and we can take it from there I like in in. Sorry in the UK. Head. Coach at sint George Hill Lawn. Tennis, Club it's a club that's one hundred, seven years old. So it's been there a long time. We've got about four thousand members pretty busy range of colts etc and doubles is pretty is pretty busy throughout the club. Okay. So four thousand members stats that's a lot of members a day. How many more active now so that membership split between different tasks gotTa Health and Fitness Section, we got obviously tennis and we've got a pool of we've got some squash as well about two thousand play play tennis including a genius Sir Pretty Busy sets up we've got the. And how many courts you have? We've got thirty three courts. The mixture of different surfaces indoors grass at different of official clay. So we've got a full range on ice and your head coach there. Yet on the head coach because the team of twelve coaches coaches right busy at the club especially now with people coming out of lockdown tennis being such a good thing to do with social distancing etcetera have to tennis numbers gone up since this time last year the participation has yet a court really busy from. Morning till night with lots of people working from home. And a sneaking out lunchtime for Gamete friends search it. It's pretty busy. And tell me you're also dope coach of too great. Great doubles team John from John Peers and Mike Venus. How'd you manage? Being the head coach such a big club and also working with these guys. Yeah, it's it's challenging. Sometimes I'm not on the road with them a massive amount I I do some events as when we can fit it in and it works for all of us. But when they're back in the UK back base, we we work at the club and we fit in around the the day to Day Club What Club coaching that I do the members like to see the the guys around the guys get involved on the court with some of the members which is great and members really enjoy that. Exhibitions and clinics and things. It's it's nice to have them around. And here you having a good week this week they took a nice English scalp in the first round in Rome. Yeah. The did they played. Jamie Murray near Skopje Fest? Round and which obviously J. me was was one of John's previous partners and then yesterday that a came through fourteen twelve in the final set breaker against John's partner from last year, which was Henry Continent finished guy. At the top level, they're all playing people they've played before, which must make. It's so interesting. How, from how do you coach or head of players deal with known that the other guy knows all their secrets are patrons may be a better word yet it's good. Yeah. Lots of players play with with certain patterns in they do specific things at certain times. So it's it's know we speak regularly before the matches. Go through what the opponents, what we might expect them to do what they did against them last time if they did it against the lost time and it was successful low probably good again, if if they didn't work than the opponent will change it. So we've got to be prepared for things to change and it might change through the course match nobody plays exactly the same way all the time
FTC eyes possible antitrust suit against Facebook
"Check out shares facebook under fire today as the social media giant deals with a boycott in possible anti-trust lawsuit let's get to Julia Carson. Who's got the details. Julia? Well, Melissa, the FTSE's in working on its investigation into facebook since last June and now the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the agency is gearing up to possibly file an antitrust lawsuit. Later, this year after investigating concerns that facebook's been using its position to stifle incompetent to stifle competition and examining its acquisitions of potential competitors got a no comment from facebook as well as from the FTC on this report but. That's always the question what could come next while a majority of the five member commission would have to vote in favor of the suit. Then potential remedies could range from breaking off a piece of the company to a fine to restrictions on facebook's operations than to mandate any changes. The FTC, would have to prove that these book violated antitrust law. Now, this conversation comes as a dozen of top celebrities on instagram. Abstain from posting on that platform today in solidarity with the Hashtag Stop Hate for profit campaign the participants including Kim Kardashian with one hundred, Eighty, eight, million followers Katy Perry with one, hundred, seven million or posting messages this week about how they think facebook could address hate speech on facebook and instagram. Now Kim Kardashian posting yesterday quote that she can't sit by and stay silent while these platforms continue to. Allow the spreading of hate propaganda and misinformation and double ACP CEO Derek Johnson saying quote it's speaks volumes that there is now widespread concern but facebook's complacency and W.. C.. P. Of course, is one of the organizers of stop hate for profit. Now, of course, the question is whether this will impact consumer behavior and whether it could drive facebook to make additional changes Melissa, Juliet's interesting the basis the FTC. Potential suit or complaint in that when facebook bought what's up when facebook instagram these were nowhere near competitor's at the time I mean, at the time it seemed for instance, Instagram it was purchased what for a billion dollars it at thirteen employees I don't think that anybody ever thought that it would become what it is. Today was not seen at all as a potential competitor. Absolutely, and Melissa's worth pointing out that the FTC approved both acquisition of Instagram and the acquisition of WHATSAPP and facebook has argued repeatedly that is because these companies were part of facebook the because that they had the investment of giant like facebook that they could grow to the scale and return they are now in interestingly face, you been focused on integrating the back end of. Those APPs allowing people to message between them and they would say these things don't exist in a vacuum and never would have gotten to that scale if they'd been left as a standalone
Claire Babineaux-Fontenot, CEO of Feeding America
"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. This game is still working from home for the time being because of Kobe Ninety today, Clare, Babbit. No fonteneau joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the CEO of feeding America. The nation's largest domestic hunger relief organization feeding America provides more than four billion meals to more than forty million people across the country Clare Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the couch what thank you so much for having me. We are. You've a fascinating stories. WE'RE GONNA get into it, but I gotta ask you what we ask all guests on the show skim, your resume for us. So I have a high school in my. To griped way Harrington graduate from high school. So everything I'm going to say a list of I. So I have an undergraduate degree I've that an limb in accession I'm a lawyer by training I worked in government in big for accounting in a major law firm or one that would be Walmart in northwest Arkansas and it's now Mike to be the CEO of feeding America as you just mentioned. something that we can't Google about you. that. Had My druthers by real fantasy would've been to sing background vocals for Luther Vandross. Do. You have a good voice. No. Not, really though my kids I think they seem like it but they not. So. We're GONNA talk about how you grew up and when we usually talk about people's professional story you know obviously, we're all shaped by how he grew up in our family dynamic and you know only children verses having siblings versus just different family structures, Daniela each have one sibling, and we talk a lot about that dynamic. You have more than one sibling and I would love for you. To to share a little bit worried about that. Boy Do I. Have More than one of laying. In fact unusually, ladies will use this to warm up audience what speech I'll ask them. To sue you have they never guessed one hundred and seven dams I. Say that one more time one, hundred and seven I thought it was a Typo as we were doing prep for this one, hundred seven. So your listeners will quickly say biology must not be the only thing involved fares. At birth adoption, Bostick theorem one of one hundred kids and I love that you early on asked that question because I do think it informs everything that matters about me was shaped by that fats. That is a lot of people and I cannot imagine saying that amount. If you bar blood in my family, let alone my siblings, I really want to understand. Like what that dynamic, wise and like your parents sound like extraordinary people that were able to give to so many individuals to really provide a home for so many children I mean literally just walk us through the very tactical how many people lived in the house like how many of your siblings names do you now? Okay I'm sure I, know all by siblings. Can and it's probably the reason that I remember he'll stories more than their names now because I used of all capacity. Sensitive, it's all that I've ever known. So my parents learned of two little kids neighboring town who were suffering for mcglasson abuse. My Dad was at work in bag. My mom was working from home and she got him in the Aren Ima. Ronald. So I'd never known anything this. It's through the ice of brands that I came to realize how bizarre was. So there were never more than sixteen Abbas several living at home at the same time but there were many times when there were six of us living at home at the same and what was something really unique about our family. Of course, the numbers are big but the other thing is that I love the way you talk about family because I. I've always had a sense of what it means to be family. That feel a little different than maybe some of the conventional thoughts around what it means to be family. So family for us in order mentally we were not biologically connected. So that's not what brother or sister in our household I had a lot more brothers and sisters I have a lot more. Than I have sisters. I was rough and tumble with my brothers and my sisters we engage the Lai in activities together. And often they were outside.

That are twelve steppers. It's all over the rooms of alcoholics anonymous. One day at a time I remember in the beginning of my recovery. I didn't really understand a lot of the cliches in the rooms. There are all of these weird. One liners that people repeat. And if I'm honest I didn't know what any of the men like. That's just the truth. I would just kind of smile and nod because I had no idea what these people were talking about but I totally get it now and I understand that. The one liners are just a short hand version of the long versions right. These are one liners that can throw out in. We understand the bigger meaning behind them. We're going to talk about one day at a time and what it means how it can be helpful and how to break down even smaller in those moments of crisis but first before we take that deep dive. Let's talk about a few things going on around here in the crazy busy week. I've had doing some major collaborations with other recovery rockstars first off. I got to be on the recovery.

Dr. Deborah Birx on effectiveness of social distancing measures in the US
"Governors are working to get back to some semblance of normal but key questions remain one. Alaska mayor has captured the dilemma. So many are facing my worst nightmare is with. We have to go if I go from phase three four back down the phase one. How do you do that already? Let everybody out. How do you CA? Catch him and put them back in for more on this. White House Corona Virus Response Coordinator. Dr Deborah burks joins us now. Good Morning Dr Burks. We now have. All fifty states gradually opening up but Saturday. North Carolina reported the highest one day number of Cova cases with one thousand one hundred seven they call it a notable and concerning increase Arkansas. Also reporting a second wave in Minnesota is reaching capacity in its. Icu should these states now. Scaled-back on relaxing the rules given these statistics. I think it's really important and thank you for the question to really understand what's driving those outbreaks and we've been working with every county and state and local officials both through the CDC and through the governor's through the governor's calls to really encourage proactive testing. So some of this is increased testing in areas where we know are the highest risk whether it's nursing homes whether it's areas where people work and sleep and stay together transport together and really getting proactive testing out there to find cases before there's community spread. I think you know from the Arkansas case. A lot of that was associated by a social gathering. And that's why we really made it clear that during this reopening social gatherings should not be more than ten people even if they're outside because you still need to maintain that social distancing but but exactly as you said Freddie that people can go out to beaches. This weekend is as long as they stayed distance. But when you look at images of these large crowds at beaches on Saturday at outdoor restaurants water parks not keeping social distance. Does this still make you confident that reopening beaches and parks was the right call? I think it's our job as public health officials every day to be informing the public that what puts them at risk. And we've made it clear that there's a symptomatic spread and that means that people are spreading the virus unknowingly and this is unusual in the case of respiratory diseases in many cases. So you don't know who's infected and so we really want to be clear all the time. Social distancing is absolutely critical. And if you can't social distance and you're outside you must wear a mask. These are items that are really critical to protect individuals. We've learned a lot about this virus but we now need to translate that learning into real change behavior that stays with us so we can continue to drive down the number of cases but I guess that's my point you're not seeing it across the country. You're not seeing those speeches and I think that's our job to continue to communicate and I think we have to communicate through different venues making sure that our generation sees our millennials can help us get that message out there of how to be together socially yet distant and I think there is a way to do that. Americans are amazingly innovative. And I think we really just need to have better. Continuous communication on how important that is and then highlighting these issues that. Come up like in Arkansas with this pool party. This is why it's really important that you maintain those distances and again to speak to those who the vulnerabilities Komar both in phase one and phase two of openings. We had asked you to continue to shelter in place because we know that those co morbidity put you out of greater risk for more significant disease and so those two pieces need to continue to happen where people who have commodities are continuing to shelter while those who don't are going out but for maintaining social distances. So they're not spreading to others

Kingpins Daily: Jhon Jairo Velasquez
"Today's quote is from Hitman. John Jairo Popeye Velazquez of the medicine drug cartel the less was Pablo Escobar's right hand. Man throughout the s until his arrest in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine upon his release. Velazquez started a new life. Leveraging his notoriety into a Popular Channel Book Deals and film roles in the two thousand seventeen interview. Velazquez defended his past life as a criminal saying with the politicians. We have in Columbia. Being abandoned is an honor. Velazquez delivered this incisive quote. Only a few years ago but the government corruption. He alludes to has a very long history one that is deeply entwined with the rise of the cartels in the Mid Nineteen Ninety s Columbia's then presidential candidate a Nesto. Some pair was accused of accepting six million dollars from a drug cartel though. Some pet narrowly won election and survive to impeachment proceedings. These signaled the corruption had reached the very highest levels of the Colombian government. It didn't end there in the two thousand six para political scandal. Five congressmen were arrested for collaborating with a paramilitary group that was responsible for killing thousands of Colombians civilians and as recently as two thousand eleven. Thirteen members of Columbia's Tax Authority were arrested for embezzling millions of dollars from the country's taxpayers. Over the US. This level of rampant corruption has undermined public faith in the Colombian government and election process within this context. One can see how Velazquez mine ocoee that compared to these politicians being abandoned is an honor however it must be pointed out that Popeye Alaska's was much more than just a bandit. He was a ruthless and prolific assassin. Beliefs Kaz began working for notorious drug lord. Pablo Escobar at the tender age of seventeen before joining the cartel. He had tried out the navy where he got the nickname Popeye for his strength and prominent jaw but Velazquez quickly left the service in search of a more thrilling line of work becoming Pablo. Escobar's enforcer was much more in line. With what Young Velasquez was looking for. He took to the bloody work with. Gusto over the course of his criminal career Velazquez claim to have personally murdered more than three hundred people as well as participating in the killings of thousands more in the midst of escalating violence Velazquez masterminded the deployment of upwards of two hundred car bombs against rival druglords and government officials and in Nineteen eighty-nine ve Alaska's targeted a Colombian presidential candidate by planting a suitcase bomb on a plane. Which killed all one hundred seven people aboard as well as three more on the ground he later described this mass murderer as a work of art. Even rampant government corruption begins to Pale in comparison to the level of Violence Velazquez. Took pleasure in meeting out. Presumably Popeye would have happily continued on as a hitman indefinitely but his exploits eventually caught up with him. In nineteen eighty. Nine Velasquez was sentenced to thirty years in prison for drug terrorism and the murder of a Colombian presidential candidate. He only served twenty two years before his release in two thousand fourteen with prison behind him. Velazquez publicly renounced his old ways and embarked on a new career as a kind of pundit and public figure he launched a youtube channel called Popeye Arab Pentito or remorseful Popeye in which he held court on various political issues affecting Columbia. The channel quickly racked up more than one point two million subscribers and Alaska's parlayed the online popularity into to book deals and a movie about his life which he directed and starred in Popeye also gave private tours of medicine highlighting the sites of cartel escapades though. Velazquez claimed to repent for his sins often and loudly. There is some evidence to suggest that his apology tour was more about attention and notoriety ben contrition in some videos. Popeye posted. He visited the graves of people he murdered and described in vivid detail. Exactly how he killed them. Perhaps as a way to relive his glory days also Velazquez reacted poorly when people didn't accept his apology for example when the son of a man who died in that plane bombing refused to forgive him. Popeye called him a bad man with an evil heart ultimately. There's no way to know pies true motivations but whatever Velasquez was he could certainly turn of phrase for example. Popeye once said it is better to die of a bullet than of a disease in bed. Ironically in February twenty twenty Alaska's passed away at age fifty seven from stomach cancer. It seems death is the great
