Halo Championship Series Pivots Due to Pandemic

"I want Halo Sports back I think all of you probably want Halo eastport back how a top fight beloved game only a decade ago has fallen so far out of public perception is a travesty. Well. Somebody players are invested in bringing it back. They've had to pivot due to the coronavirus the halo championship series or h was begging lot on the release of Halo Infinite but halo infinite was just delayed to twenty twenty one due to the virus. Now, the is still want to get some competition out there but they definitely are on the level of what we were hoping with infinite today. The HCC announced the halo five pro series between September twenty six and mid December the will host a combination of open professional tournaments culminating with four season. Championships, the is still operating the master chief collection, pro series or MTC pro series as well, but those games being played in Halo Three. This new series we played, in Halo, five as you may have guessed in this press release the ATS. Also said they're increasing weekly prizes for the MCC from five hundred dollars to one thousand dollars. If that doesn't sound like a ton, it's because it's not he'll has an eastward has fallen far from when it stood in direct competition to call duty mini are hoping for return and the ATS is the closest. Thing, we have the halo five pro series will have total prizes of sixty three thousand dollars that's split across four regions. The release of Halo.

Open source developer and Gitcoin creator Kevin Owocki discusses modern fundraising

"To jump right into it in the world, of Crypto, currency money is important depending on your view bitcoin itself is or aspires to be money in a very real way and without question, the craziest time Crypto have surrounded or even just been entirely about fundraising for projects. This has always been positive though in the later stages of the initial coin offering praise it seemed like raising money became the point rather than what it was being raised to accomplish in its aftermath. It's become increasingly obvious that what's being funded matters at least as much as how you get the funding but how you get the funding is important to. A couple of weeks ago Andrey's, and I were talking about an open source project. He'd actually used get coin to fund is, can you tell that story can here? Yeah absolutely. You know every now and then I come across an idea or find a gap in the court system where I think it would be really useful if we had a software gizmo to do X. Y. or Z. and even though I can code myself I don't have the time to embark on these little projects. So as I've done in the past I looks for way to funded developer to do this work and this time I decided to use bitcoin I've been Aware of it and looked at it in the past. But now I had a real project to sink my teeth in. So the projects was to develop a plug in or changing the wizard of the electron import in order to enable it to discover derivation paths, and I'm no monnet craze that has been used in a different wallet where the user doesn't know what the derivation path is and keeps having difficulty recovering funds. This is a problem, a lot of newbies have. And so I put up a he basically and a bounty is a pot of money in this case denominated in the stable coin die so that it's the equivalent value and I put up a one thousand dollar bounty for about forty to sixty hours of work approximately I estimated to develop this capability I wrote a specification as a get hub issue and the I thing. About Bitcoin is that it integrates directly into get hub. So I could take the issue where described the desired feature in detail and then attached the bounty directly to that, and then have developers come and pitch to take on that bounty and executed. It was completed a couple of weeks ago paid out and it's a feature that's being merged into hopefully the next version of Elektra. Now, that tool that you had created actually you and I had a little back and forth about it because turns out that you don't necessarily a Newbie to run into the problems that you were trying to solve their and we actually wound up using it to solve a big problem. I've been working on for a couple of months, but that's going to be another episode. Entirely, today we're talking with Kevin Kevin, can you just kind of take us through the basics of bitcoin was kind of the goal and how is it operating? Let's just start off with the most basic question for people who aren't familiar with the project. Is there a bitcoin or is this something that builds using as Andrea saying die or other types of Tokens as a reward? Yet, that's a great place to start. There is no bitcoin token bitcoin is a place where you can get coins. If you're a software developer in exchange for doing software development tasks, we have unfortunately from a branding perspective gotten swept up with a lot of the projects. Did do ICO's IOS in two thousand seventeen even though we never did in Seo. So. Take us back to the beginning kind of what was the thinking about this project in general what was the problem that you were trying to solve, and then how did you end up solving? So I've been working in web startups for the last thirteen years pretty much ever since I graduated from school and every software project that I've ever worked on has been an open source software projects. So whenever I start a new start up I will use python, which is an open source programming language. I will use an open source database server, I will use an open. Source Web server, and so every time I've built a start up all the stuff that you see in tech crunch are standing on the shoulders of giants of open source software and basically every time I've built a software startup I've been using open source software and open source software crates, billions of dollars of value for the world, but there's good way for software developers to monetize. The work that they do in open source software, and so that was sort of founding reason why I created Bitcoin, which is a double sided market connect software developers to the people want to fund their work in open source software in the sort of insight is that now using the blockchain space, we now have billions of dollars of capital that's going to open source software. Whereas before in the old financial system, all of the money that goes into it goes to some back office on wall. Street. So what if we could build a marketplace where the software developers they can sort of be the routing mechanism for the money going to software developers and have it the blockchain native project? That's what get coin is and that was the genesis of Bitcoin.

The Greatest Barn Finds of All Time

"Barn fines. The long lost cars with a built in mystery, we're addicted to these lost and found time capsules partly because of the story they tell about the past but also of how they feel in the president like something that time traveled into. Now with decades old potential waiting to be tapped and to be clear, these cars don't need to be found in a barn. Okay. Today are barn finds come from parking garages and Australian chicken coop and even buried underground some because. What's the rarest car ever found? What's the most valuable and how did these automotive treasures get lost in the first place? A normal person loses their car keys once in a while. But who is the person that can lose an entire car? especially one like a prototype shelby Mustang or a LAMBORGHINI MIRA s here's a hint. They're usually very rich people. We'll also get into Wi Carr fans continue to love these barn fines. Maybe an age where literally all the information in the world sits in our pocket. The idea of hidden treasure is more precious than ever before and with so many cars feeling blander and more mass produced than ever unique cars feel rare than ever to a barn find always has its own one of a kind story behind it. So I think that's a really good point I would say that like barn finds potentially like. Don't exist in the way that they used to because to me a barn find. Also. Suggest some sort of like. Deal or like you. You know what? I. Mean Like it's like, Oh, I found this car. Then I bought it for this much money whereas like now the person. Can just google it like I know I I make a living everyone in this makes a living talking about cars on the Internet, but the Internet is ruined cars everything is valuable now. Yeah. It tennis sucks I. Think it hasn't ruined the joy of driving or getting to experience like new things in that way, but I see what you're saying whereas. A lot of things are described value immediately, which I I really hate God on bring a trailer this week there is some Honda accord from the mid seventies that sold for like twenty one thousand dollars and I was like that car it's not worth that amount of money just because it's A condition four thousand dollars to a huge Honda accord. But because like there's such a hype around like Oh man this is like in this such and such condition with this miles and it's There's only so many of them like that's when money kind of ruins it in that culture of like wanting to have. A car that valuable I don't know the same thing happened though like fifteen years ago with barn find particularly mopus because those cars Warner's common back in the day. So when people found like Barracuda or Challenger sitting somewhere in a barn there like a meal like discards worth a million dollars no rusty piece of. and. It's only worth a million dollars if it was original parts matching everything. But because you found some shell behind your uncle's place, it doesn't mean Jack it's. Clearly. Look I'm a I'm a bitter Mo- par, Guy. It's been the the the. Been in completely over inflated, which is why I had to buy an imperial instead of like a real muscle car. Of. This attitude that everything has to be some crazy valuable car for to be cool which is not true. Your car is really cool knowing don't feel bad about but Joe, I know I don't know any sometimes Nolan's car. No one's cars parked at my house sometimes I go and sit in it I I. I'm glad. It's fun. It's like I said Mitt I think like when the Sun's going down. Unlike man, this thing is going to be cool when it runs, we'll be it's it's I ordered a bunch of brake parts which have arrived James outs There might be some more boxes on the way, but I'm GONNA refresh the brake system, and after that, the big hurdle becomes getting the car to run and that's when I can find out what else needs to be fixed. So. is it are you converting from drum brakes disc? No, it's. It's got drum brakes around. So I ordered a bunch of drum brake. Specific stuff like. Brake shoes and wheel cylinders. Brake lines return springs all this stuff I also live on the top of a gigantic hill. It's to be a real trial by fire situation. We're going to go around your little neighborhood there first before we do anything drastic. This is like a seventeen thousand pound rockets. Zooming down. Well, we know that we know the break works. So let's get right into. Finally. With what might be the OG OF BARN FINES? All right. This car probably has the record for the longest time hidden away it spent. Okay. You guys ready for this. One hundred and twelve years sitting in a shed in Austria before being uncovered in two thousand fourteen. Wow. The car I'm talking about is the Porsche p one also known as the Edgar Lunar Electric Vehicle, and even calling a car might be a bit of a stretch, Armstrong whatever you WanNa call though what's not up for debate is that the P. One is the world's first ever Porsche designed by then twenty three year old Ferdinand Porsche Ferdinand even employees the nineteenth century version of a watermark actually hand carving P. One into every individual component of the car. So like you mentioned, this is parts numbers matching Baoji are all original equipment the

The great laptop shortage of 2020

"Have you tried to buy a Laptop Lali Yep It's another victim of the pandemic, but there's more to the story. I'm Jefferson Graham, you're listening to talking tech. So the pandemic which sent everybody to work at home and learn from home also sent many people out to buy new computers for their kids or from themselves and most of what they bought where the cheap models you can buy really cheap laptops or three to four hundred dollars. They're not very good but they are cheap and they. If you don't tax them too much will do the job now they're gone and. Coupled with that is the Chinese tariffs. That the trump administration put through. So making it very hard to get those computers into our shores, the companies like Lenovo and Dell and HP have been scrambling to try to move their manufacturing out of China to countries like Malaysia in. Vietnam. And they're getting there but it hasn't happened totally yet meanwhile. You need a laptop. What are you GonNa do well forget about the cheap ones you're going to have to spend money. You're probably looking at six to eight, hundred, six, hundred, eight, hundred dollars says Tim Baharan a longtime analyst with creative strategies he recommends against buying a used computer because technology has moved on and they will not last. You doubt long better that you just spend the money I did some tests on Amazon and best buy and other sites and You can still find laptops you just GonNa pay a little bit more for them the windows computers. Again six to eight hundred dollars Max start at one thousand dollars for the MAC air go way up from there and Microsoft service is around eight hundred dollars for the entry level model. You will find a laptop just no, it's going to take a lot more work than it might have taken last year.

Stop Stepping To Your Vision

"Right but so. Most you know Rachel Pearson spoke at the last two hacking lives and she's made. She's also the Queen of Tiktok, and my daughter is her biggest fan, and anyway she's actually going to boise and my daughter so excited to talk with her, which is going to be so fun anyway, she. She, she walks me over a really cool question about you know taking things once airtime, and how you create your vision, and how you bypass things in all kind of stuff so I'm GonNa play her her part of Oxford right here, senior the question and then I'm GonNa. Come back, answer if someone called me out today, and and they were very spot on. They said I feel like you are taking the stairs. One step at a time when you are destined for greatness, so my question to you is. How did you create a vision? Did it fall into your lap? Did you read a book how you create a vision for your life in Your Business that? Keeps everything going. You know like the infinite game from Simon Sinek. Thank you so so so much. Okay, so I think it's a really good question, and it's interesting because. I think a lot of us. We get into this game and we don't really know what's possible where we're going or any of those things you know like. I didn't I didn't know what was happening. Today was possible by any stretch of the machinations. So I think sometimes you bypass your vision. In fact, it was kind of a really cool. What a really cool experience I was Remember we did. The final startup story was with mixer at this. In Utah called the drive, our comedy club and had JP sears. Come into roast me for an hour before we. We did the interview and it was so funny, but anyway at dinner I asked JP makes what's next few. What's what's the next plan? And he has smiled at me. He looks so content something that I've never been my wife and he was like It's like you know what he's like so far. Everything that's happened me surpassed wherever possible select some China just enjoy, and just like enjoy things as they. They. Come and be grateful for them. And I was like Oh my gosh. That is amazing like I need to learn that, so there's that piece of it right and he gets entrepreneur struggle with us, because because We're always looking, you know come back to my my last podcast, so talking about We're so tied into achievement achievement. She moved. Forget about the fulfillment side, so there's an apartment, the other side which I understand Moore's this goal of achieving and trying to take over the world and stuff like that and You Know I. Remember A- At the very I live in ever went to I remember I one thousand dollars to go to which is like the first step for me, my call so much money like stressed out and the speakers talking up people selling different things and and I remember. I can never Ford this thing for two grander, five, ten, grand, or all these different things kind of being like bummed out about it right and I. Remember Admits Kid and the kid was. Maybe a year, older Mir, maybe same age. I was like I was twenty two at the time he been twenty three or something but we are about the same age and and I saw the the presenters Solas Mash grouping route three signed up for it and I was like how did you? How are you for that like I can I can figure it out for that and he's like. Oh, he's like well. There's two ways to get. Get the top you can work your way, and you can buy your insights by my way I'm like well for sounds like this leap in thought I'd never have crossed my mind before my okay, it's pretty cool and then then it's more questions like well. How'd you four for this and he's like I'm actually in twelve masterminds. This time I was like what how did you do that? And he came back and said well what I did is that. What and He's like I. wanted to go these things, but I couldn't afford us as they found. People who kind of trained toss of to so I wanna go is mastermind. Groups obviously can be expensive for everyone to pay. For you for you know if you guys want to go, all this is going to be really expensive so if you're interested. I think if you pay me ten grand and I get. I don't know twenty people. Two hundred thousand dollars Algo. Join all of them and I'll come back until you cool stuff I learned and he got all these people are paying twenty grand. And he took the money, or whatever it was I don't know. And he joined all these mastermind groups, and he bought his way in, and he got up, and he built his company very very very very quickly and I thought that was just a strategic thing. You know I remember celebrity apprentice. Few Watch delivery apprentice in the past I three or four episodes, people do things that was like fundraisers. It was like Corey's money sleep while on the street and they're try. Lemonade always seems raise. Money wasn't tough. I don't know two or three seasons in when the dude from kiss. that. Yeah. Kiss Gene Simmons. GM's was on it and They do fundraising things out there trying to raise money that hustling and he just sat, there picked up his phone made a phone call and got a check from his buddies for half million dollars, and you destroyed everybody else out of the Moore. Looking at thinking, he's thinking in a different level and everybody else says the thought difference, right? Everyone's like like here's the task must do the thing. And they jumped up him. Trump except step-by-step. Whereas Gene Simmons came back and said Look I can do that or I. Can just do this and we'll jump you know a thousand steps past everyone else. And I think I remember watching have now and just like okay. I got started thinking more strategically. US think tactically which tactics are so important is how we get the thing done, but it takes stopping stepping back and looking at things more strategically of okay. Here's next step next up. You want to jump five or ten or twenty tears is not going to happen by you. Doing the next step is to stepping back and saying what's the next thing like what's the? What's the big the big domino? The next I don't know there's ways to phrase. It I'm not sure the best way but conceptually it's it stopping the tactics instead back strategically and thinking different right. Click funnels I'd so many amazing strategic conversations with friends and people The worldwide software company right, if you, if you at the expert, secrets book like we talked about movement and finding a future base 'cause and like all these things that weren't. They weren't tactically like. Here's the next step it. It's like how do we? How do we? We've these things into our culture right? How do we? H-. How do you do these things? They caused these incremental big shifts as opposed to just increasing your your your ads by ten, or you're just created another friend and offer it's like. Have you create things that have mass shifts? Mass changes things like that. I think it really comes back stepping back away from the tactical, which means getting out of the day today, which means taking a vacation, which is hard for us right or or doing strategy your team, and just they look for three days, and we're GONNA work. We're talking about like what's possible. It's a future. Where could we go you know not not with Nextstep, but like if what if we just destroyed these steps and had a whole new thing like what would that look like? And how do we get there and you pull it? Poor Gene Simmons instead of fundraising. You just pull out A. Just, you know, put your phone and call buddy in and get five hundred thousand dollars in five seconds. That's that's the power of it so I. Hope it helps the no, it's not a full answer. Hopefully gets the Wilson head-spinning. Everyone else's listening help that helps as well

Twenty-Five Years Later, Ford Resurrects the Bronco

"If you're an offroad aficionado or even just WANNA be. This story is a big deal. After a quarter century Ford is resurrecting the Ford Bronco a direct rival to the jeep. Ford produce the Bronco for thirty straight years starting in nineteen, sixty six. The vehicle had only two doors reportedly one reason why Ford discontinued it in Nineteen ninety-six consumer sentiment was shifting toward four doors. Historians say the Bronco Developed Cult Status. After it was discontinued today, the beefy muscular vehicles, a sentimental favourite restored vintage models can sell for up to two hundred thousand dollars with a corporate unit called Ford icons. Ford is Heavily Marketing Nostalgia that division includes the Bronco, a Mustang and a new line of Ford F one fifty pick-up trucks, including a hybrid version, and soon to be debuted all electric. And Nostalgia sells, but it's far from the only reason. The automakers releasing a Bronco for the twenty first century. The company is capitalizing on a trend according to the automaker offroad vehicle, so called rugged SUV's. Twice, as popular as regular SUV's CNN reports that has engineered the new bronco models for quote hard off road driving. You know the kind that allows you to quote. Get far from civilization. An even stay there for awhile. Is the perfect escape for pandemic induced cabin fever. Get a dose of Adrenalin while avoiding the plague. It's a combination made for advertising. Heaven Kit needs to be the jeep wrangler as the Juggernaut of off road vehicles. CNBC reports that automakers have been trying to quote dethrone the Wrangler for decades. Without much success. Even during the pandemic GPS kept selling Fiat Chrysler sold an average of seventeen thousand jeep wrangler every month for the last five years according to the Detroit news last year, almost a quarter, million wrangler flew off dealership. Lots and experts say jeep owners are loyal. To a fault. Still Ford executives have moxie. They're predicting sales of two hundred thousand broncos over the next year, according to Automotive News. and. Keep in mind that the low end version of the new line. The broncos sport won't even be out until years end higher end versions of the Bronco won't be at dealerships until next spring. Ford is doing everything it can to make the Bronco enticing enough to away jeep lovers, and of course to persuade new off roaders to come into the Ford camp that includes besting the ramblers largest tires thirty three inches with whopping thirty five inch tires, Ford says a Bronco outfitted with the almost three foot in diameter tires can easily go through a couple of feet of water models also come with removable roofs and doors. Drivers can store the doors in the Bronco. For, it says. At about thirty thousand dollars, the price of the two door base Bronco comes in at only two hundred dollars more than the base price of the jeep wrangler at the top in a limited number of first edition for door Bronco started about sixty one thousand dollars, Ford began taking one hundred dollar deposits on Broncos last Monday when it released the new line I edition reservation slots sold out within a couple of hours. Still as bullish as the auto press is about the Broncos, the release comes against bleak backdrop for the auto industry. Overall vehicle sales plummeted when covid nineteen emerged shut the industry down for two months recently, both Ford and GM reported second-quarter sales declines of about thirty three percent from a year earlier jeep parent, Fiat Chrysler did even worse with sales down forty percent. And that puts a lot of pressure on Ford to live up to its promise of adding a billion dollars to the bottom line next year through Bronco Sales. And it adds pressure Chrysler to keep jeep at the top of the OFFROAD HEAP Stakes is high as the boulder strewn rocky mountains. The war between Bronco in gene. We'll be fascinating to watch.

"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since January nineteen eighty eight one day at a time. In this episode Chapter One Bill Story from the second edition about alcohol anonymous originally published in Nineteen fifty five. Substantially unchanged from the first edition there were some minor revisions to bill story. A word here sentenced there by the time the second edition was published bill story had appeared in more than three hundred thousand copies of the first edition, while a a membership had mushroomed from one hundred, two over seven, hundred, twenty, five thousand. And though bill story had already become legendary by nineteen, fifty, five, his timeless message of experience, strength, and hope retained its power and impact past his death in nineteen, seventy-one through the third and fourth editions and to the Present Day. And now. From the second edition of alcoholics anonymous. Chapter one bill story. War fever ran high in the New England town to which we knew young officers from Plattsburgh were assigned, and we were flattered when the first citizens took us to their homes, making us feel her ROIC. Here was love applause war moments sublime with intervals hilarious. I was part of life at last, and in the midst of the excitement I discovered liquor. I forgot the strong warnings, and the prejudices of my people concerning drink. In time we sail for over there. I was very lonely and again turned to alcohol. We landed in England I visited. Winchester Cathedral much moved I wandered outside. My was caught by dog role on an old tombstone. Here lies a Hampshire Grenadier. Who caught his death? Drinking cold small beer. A good soldier is narrow, forgot whether he dia by Musket or by pot. Ominous warning which I failed to heed. Twenty, two and a veteran of foreign wars. I went home at last I fancied myself a leader for had not the men of my battery given me a special token of appreciation, mitalent for leadership I imagined would place me at the head of vast enterprises, which I would manage with the utmost assurance. took a night law course and obtained employment as investigator for shirty company. The drive for success was on I'd prove to the world I was important. My work took me about Wall Street and little by little I became interested in the market. Many people lost money, but some became very rich. Why not I I studied economics and business as well as law potential alcoholic, that I was I nearly failed my law course. At one of the finals, I was too drunk to think or right. Though my drinking was not yet continuous, it disturbed my wife. Had, long talks when I would still her forebodings by telling her that men of genius conceived their best projects, when drunk that the most majestic constructions of philosophic thought were so derived by the time I had completed the course I knew the law was not for me. The inviting Maelstrom of Wall Street had me in its grip. Business and financial leaders were my heroes out of this alloy of drinking speculation I commenced to forge the weapon that one day wouldn't turn in its flight like a boomerang and all, but cut me to ribbons. Living Modestly, my wife and I saved one thousand dollars. It went into certain securities then cheap and rather unpopular. I Riley imagine that they would someday have a great rise I failed to persuade my broker friends to send me out looking over factories and management's, but my wife and I decided to go anyway. I had developed the theory theory that most people lost money in stocks through ignorance of markets. I discovered many more reasons later on. We gave up our positions off. We roared on a motorcycle.
