Caller: The Russian Army Will Collapse in 2 Weeks (at Most)

"I think it's a pretty easy decision actually. I spent 25 years on active duty in the U.S. Army. I jumped out of airplanes shot things in blue things up. I still do contract Ori occasionally. So like a little bit of a new mini, but anyways, there are several generals that I think have accurately predicted. What is going to happen? My prediction is that in about a week to ten days, two weeks at the most, the Russian army will literally collapse general Ben Hodges, has his keyed in on this. So his general catalog several others because I went down some of the matrix is some of the paperwork in the training that I received at fort Bragg and everyone of the key intelligence indicators tells me that the Russian army is literally on the verge of collapsing because every day that goes by, the Russian army gets weaker than being terror gets lower. Let me ask you something. You studied this and you know your stuff. Do you know how many troops? Do you know how many troops have died in Russia so far? The estimates? The U.S. intelligence estimates are placing an I think low.

"I mean if. I can't prioritize things that salesperson told me over lunch. What am i gonna prioritized him. Okay let's don't answer that Sue one of the the the levels you've got is actor and i think there might be a subtle difference between a persona and an actor and a central what that is so is there neither am i. But let's stretch a threat to untangle it together. So here's what i think about it. Obviously that different ways of how persona might be set up right. We have those like super fleshy gut feeling based marketing personas. Let's put these for a bit. But what did typically what. I typically sees that the persona is still based on the static attributes that are like sort of stuck with this person right and they're more humanized giving them a name and you might hear something like two thirty two bit too serious about coffee. Listens to five podcast that doesn't change the mindset of a persona and that means that i persona only considered if these broadly matched attributes seem to appeal to marketing a product. The extra categorization is is. It is much more flexible and dynamic rides because it's it's not based on ultimate attributes person might be having but on those quantifiable behaviors that are relevant in the context of the goal. So it's really just about the context and saying like just because you like coffee doesn't make you something we're of considering for our goal must be look at okay so the goal might be might be might be engagement on activation so we want to look at things like sign raid mobile usage. Push notification through right and we look at these quantifiable attributes and from there we start to build our actress segments and this is again is very flexible. And i like to think of. It does not aesthetic as the typical persona categorization because it's primarily based on the context of the watching. So is there a limit when we do. Impact mapping how many actors we should concentrate on show. We just pick one for each experiment. Oris age looking at from a couple of different perspectives. That's a really good point. So in general wouldn't set necessarily limit to the number of interest. You should map out in theory on this level right because it's about busy documenting what you have learned. That doesn't mean that you have to solve the problems of all the actors. 'cause that's probably the second biggest trait of what to me separates this extra credit actor perspective from the personas that it's also about mapping them particularly by mapping them out horizontally on that level acknowledging the relationships the differences..

What is a Comparable Sale?

"Now i raise the issue of asking what a comparable sale is simply because there is no clear or practical definition of what a comparable sale is in the appraisal literature. If you go to mark rat. Herman's book he says comparable sales should have the same ori very similar highest and best use as the subject. The fifteenth addition of the appraisal of real estate says essentially the same thing now. These are a tatum sources. But let's face it. They're not highly read nor are they highly consulted when it comes to residential real estate. Interestingly enough us pap itself they use pap. Document does not have a definition of a comparable sale in fact standard rule. One dash four which is as close as us pep gets the sales comparison approach merely tells the appraiser to quote analyzed such comparable sales data as are available again. This is an authoritative source but very few people read us. Pap quite frankly. A fannie mae doesn't have any definition of what a comparable sale is. Either it merely describes what it considers to be the characteristics of a comparable sale for example it says a comparable sale has to have the same or highly similar characteristics as the subject now this refers to the subject site in other words it size frontage depth view exposure location proximity to employment centers downtown recreation facilities etc it refers as well to similarity of room counts that just avoids a lot of unnecessary adjustments similarity of gla for the same thing trying to avoid adjustments similarity of style in other words. You're probably not going to compare a ranch with a victorian and then it requires a similarity of condition

"For this segment. I'm looking at Toxicity it's quite interesting. That most people find it so hard to admit that the i ain't toxic relationships with this be with friends at work or even parents. I think it's all the same. Unfortunately in most instances it's never outside that you can pick it and in some situations it can slowly creep up a new end even before you realize it's something that totally consumes you that if you point lead lead consider that may or may not apply to you. I mean i'm gonna professional sue. All i'm sharing is from experience or understanding that have gained over time my first point as it could be. What feels familiar if the connection between ibn love is meant allen knife. Someone who's been abused miniaturized that the other healthier ways of going about that ship. Let me see if i can simplify this point. Probably from sainthood so as a child One gets expedience abuse plus some prediction hand there and then the like blah as they grow up the gets just shit laugh with abuse and then they learn to shut down their feelings and then limb themselves and things about when bad things happen so this child gets tweet analyze that love. actually hats. Oris is had this child then grows up meets a partner who's emotionally or physically abusive than by this point. The doubt has lantau to shut down their feelings in wants and needs and then they keep leaving themselves for their partners. Devious and fortunately in other instances the partner made enforced this attachment bolton meeting between their kind acts and the acts of abuse. Which for this adults are excuse for that but not ease. That's how they loved him and it gets a point where it's now the victim who starts making excuses for their partner so in this adult later find themselves or hustled ina in an intimate relationship. They perceive the familiar feelings of shame and anger as love and care from this listenership. So that's how twisted he's gonna be my other consideration is it may be an attempt for them to heal logic behind his dad's by becoming an abuser a former victim contrite when do the abuse by taking the opposite position hoping that they can get it right this time my tied consideration would be corrupt. Someone could be feeling inadequate. People were abused as children may believe that they're not good enough or they don't deserve a genuine caring relationship so whenever they find themselves e aspects where someone needs. Someone actually cares for them. They'll go above and beyond to make distinctly. My foot went to ease. You could be trying to reverse the roles of power and control. this is by becoming an abuser. Someone who has been abused and played all of the more powerful puzzling. The leadership in an attempt to overcome that feeling of being powerless or powerlessness that powerlessness. They felt when they are being abused and finish this is not effective and they may repeatedly dominate others in an attempt to get over their weakness in an attempt to get over the weakness that the good str- experience as a victim. My next point is a strong faith. This is constant anger. You may not realize this but the reality is one tends to carry a lot of egg about what happens to them and abuse can be a way for them to express this anger so even if they even if they have pushed this anger out of their conscious awareness. It can come out in subtle or sometimes in in not-so-subtle ways within an intimate relationship or in their parenting stan. Another point of consideration could be for this passage could be an attempt to get the upper hand probably with logic that they would have a hat as before their huts people have been abused maybe relationships as output put as hunting ground where you'll be predator rather than the pre and one thing that adds to our smallest ease the occasions when the life feels way safer than the reality.

We've become friends with water. Our customer base here in the community. And it's sort of looked on as as a community hub people gather here and that's one thing that i'm not seen as a result of covert not being able to see people in the way that we could get together prior and i think there's a lot of our customers that are also missing that ability to just get together casually with people in the community.

Because we had a plan to expand the last several years we took over another retail space in the same building. Where chasing remez. And we've been building that out since two thousand eighteen so the pandemic actually fortunately did not close us down but it offered us an opportunity to introduce some of the market items that we plan to have in the new comedy. So we did that. Conversion back in april may june july kind of kept that going to the summer providing essentials for the community and also some of the italian specialty items that we plan to carry in the now current market september we shifted and participated on these shared spaces program with the city of san francisco and opened up outdoor seating on the back side of our business on lane street and that was going pretty good and catching on a little bit worse until this current shut down a couple of weeks ago with everyone in the city is experiencing a shutdown of outdoor dining throughout the city. And it has been this Roller coaster from the get our march and constant transitions shifts and changes and adjustments. And how we run our business but we feel fortunate that we've not had to close down. We've been working throughout the so. That's a little background right there.

It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning.

UK and Germany's different approaches to the pandemic

"The UK and Germany are both leading democracies and not far apart on the globe. They took very different approaches to the pandemic with very different results the UK as suffered the most covid nineteen deaths in Europe Germany with a much bigger population has lost far fewer people. NPR's correspondent in each country rob Schmitz in Berlin and Frank Langfitt in London had been talking among themselves. Hey Rob Frank. So tell me what happened in the UK. were. So many mistakes a big reason is the government honestly doesn't really seem to think ahead Boris Johnson you remember he sold Brexit to the British people in two thousand sixteen with no plan on how to execute it. So in the virus began spreading here Johnson course he's now prime minister. He was slow to recognize the threat here he is on March Third I was at movie night. where I think the rush if you credit ours patience and I shook hands of everybody. So by April Johnson an icy ICU covid nineteen I was talking to you in Boyd he's a member of the scientific group that advises the government. The UK didn't really grasped the speed with which the epidemic was entering the country under are all sorts of reasons for that, some of which are to. Lack of organisational capability sometimes when there's very high uncertainty, you simply have to shut things down really quickly and frank here in. Germany. That's what they did on January twenty seven. The first known case of coronavirus was sent to Clemson ventner chief physician at the Munich Schwab in clinic we have very similar like the boys gall. Be always prepare. Then you're watched what was happening in Italy in January where the virus was spreading pretty fast and we knew that we have to flatten the curve. So even before the first case of Covid nineteen and Germany, he was working on slowing its progress and he says the German government was involved from day one asking us what do you need we? We? We didn't have to ask them for example, Germany already had a big supply of ICU beds clouds Deutsche is at the Federation of German. You know that it's been a long debate on whether we had too many intensive care beds that warned us that often obviously that debate is over Deutsche says, Germany also has a lot of hospitals. If you take all the beds in all of Germany's hospitals, you get four times more per capita than what the UK has rob. You had slack in your system in Germany there. Was Not much here because the government had been cutting funding to the National Health Service for years, the hospitals were afraid of getting swamped with Cova patients. So they sent elderly patients back to nursing homes some broad cove with them infected other residents at least twenty, thousand nursing home residents died of covid. That's terrible in while in Germany, deaths were prevented through testing and contact tracing. The health authority in Berlin district of Hong, Kong and operator talks to man at conduct with a positive case, there are around four hundred call centers like this across Germany Peters directs this one become Austin We have traffic wardens and librarians working for us. We've recruited gardeners from parks and recreation Germany had a lot of manpower and testing to infrastructure filled with labs and university medical centers across the country. You know here the government misread the corona virus they thought it was going to spread as quickly as the flu. They didn't even try to develop a testing system where we steward he's a former British cabinet minister they were very, very confident. And slightly arrogant neb beliefs that they understood this disease better than other countries, I think the lack of scientific education amongst a lot of the British political elite meant that they were very reluctant to challenge scientists but here, Germany. Frank. A trained scientist is at the helm and Chancellor Angela Merkel. gave one of the most powerful and heartfelt speeches in her life when she made a rare national address on March. Eighteenth dusted fees above in then. Comes here. I have absolutely no doubt that we will overcome this crisis. How many victims will it claim? How many loved ones lose to a large extent? The answer lies in our own hands miracle has a doctorate in quantum chemistry, and in another speech, she patiently explain how important it was for Germany to reduce the viruses reproduction rate. Her tone was always humble and deadly serious. I'm. Doing this Icefield is off that. We are thin ice. This is a situation in which caution not over-confidence is the order of the day it really different here Johnson studied classics at Oxford University. He was president the debating society and as Prime Minister he's tried to rally the country with rhetoric. We must act like any wartime government and do whatever it takes to support our economy Johnson's Ori helped win a landslide election last year, but a pandemic, of course, not a campaign. Here's where. We store again he sees himself as somebody who is encouraging a rugby team for nineteen minute match telling them that fantastic to make them play. Well, he doesn't primarily see himself as somebody whose job is to get into uncomfortable details were chew over policy and strategy but frank, it's this chewing over of policy and strategy. This technocratic nature of the German government that may have also contributed to Germany's success hunts could is senior research fellow at Chatham House this sort of doubling down on technocracy. Populism has now been discredited by the Corona Virus. He says, that's potentially dangerous. If technocrats feel too emboldened, there might be an even bigger growth populist backlash in the future some people will blame Johnson for Britain's handling of covid campaigner. He thinks Johnson's more symptoms than 'cause captors just written a book called why the Germans do it better notes from grownup country. We've descended into believing that somehow because we always muddled through in the past muddling through is a recipe that will get us through in the future. So rob where's Germany now with crow verse? Well cases are rising deaths are not that tells us these new cases are from young people, children across the country are back in classrooms, but the German government seems so far. Okay. With the dangers of this, there remains a strong infrastructure of hospital beds, testing, tracing Germany fields, prepared and Chancellor Angela Merkel's popularity ratings are sky high eighty, six percent. WOW cases rising rapidly to we've got new strictures but Johnson actually had trouble explaining them to the nation recently the last surveys Ron Johnson is under forty percent approval rating testing capacity here still can't meet demand. And Winter's coming. NPR London correspondent Frank Langfitt, and Berlin correspondent. Rob? Schmitz.

Interview with Thriller Writer Andrew Allan - burst 1

"Hi. Everyone may guest is the author of the wall Asher Thriller series you also right to grind house hulk. We've gotten talked about. He is an infomercial writer and director is also into wild cope movies making them I believe. And runs a website called daily. Grind House Dot. com I guess today's Andrew. Allan. Hi Andrew. Thanks for being here. It's Sure thing I love your resume I mean you're you're by it was fascinating to me because I love sill as well as books I assumed that you were infomerrcial rendered director before you started writing books. Yes. Yeah I, my career is little bit weird in the sense that I went to film school and then I, broke two commercials while I was working on developing movies and I ended up getting a job at the home shopping network, which is based here in Saint Pete Florida and. It's bizarre. Everyone presumes it is, but it was really great experience and I learned how to do a lot of things including sell on TV and that often into doing infomercials, which is selling on TV so and I have to say I love it as ridiculous as it sounds I it's great profession. Sounds. Really cool actually. What made you decide to do infomercials and what prompted you to start writing books? Money prompted me to start doing infomercials. Is You know we all need it. We all like it. But three Oris was. Like I said, I. Learned to basically sell on television when as at. and. That is a natural transition into infomercials and when I decided Lake Age San. I knew I wanted to make my writing or sorry make my living still riding in. If, directing producing commercials. In what was great about infomercials was at a Niche. So instead of just saying, Hey, I'M A. Commercial writer and there's ten thousand other people are competing with. I said been infomercial right better and maybe ten people on meeting with. So now I can like authentically say one of the top it from our show writers world and I've got a ton of experience done thousands of commercials in the ask aid and all that sort of stuff so. It's great and that's how that came to be the reason I started writing books. was because I I remember reasons when I was creatively frustrated had been making movies had been writing screenplays in. which were fun and some of them got made some of them did. But all of them required collaboration and I had reached a point where I didn't really want to collaborate anymore. At least for a while, I needed a break. And that's even on projects that I absolutely loved movie that was aching with my best friend and. Even then like we would get into arguments and about I just needed a break from that. So I wanted to do something on my own and that's when I decided to write a book had a story. Kind of kicking around that I'd never been able to turn into a script. I finally figured out how to make that work in book form, which was the first of Asher took and. Took it from there, the other the other part of that story is. I was actually reading a book by. A very famous author that we all know who I'm not GONNA name and Not to sound Eric and I thought it was terrible house like a weight. and. I actually caught myself saying I could do better. And? You know a very arrogant thing to save for someone who's never. But I decided to see if I could back up. And I think I did. unbelie speaking I didn't think I was right. Funny because a lot of writers actually do start offers those kinds of thoughts I do this. Anyway it wasn't even looking down at the writing it was in fact. The looking at the idea of being writer was more like this story is not entertaining be and. I know enough about story structure from screen plays and things like that. where I could look at this and say, really was about me thinking this guy should be doing a lot better for albig their name is and how much money. Yeah. You points for originality on coming up with a protagonist is infomercial writer. Director. But I see that you've drawn from your own background or at least I assume you have. Tell US little about wall. Ask How is it? He gets into the kinds of situations that would lead to thriller. Series. What I had to figure out. As. He is comes from my background. I did go down the road of right now and that's because. As confident as I was writing commercials in his confident as was writing movies I had no confidence whatsoever writing a book so I figured I ought to. Rely on everything that I could get off the so. And then plus the idea. Of Him being an infamous rider was intriguing. You know. I. Like all of us had written read million books about cops and lawyers and soldiers, detectives and reporters. That's great. People are probably doing it better than me. So let me try something completely different. And I worked at it worked because I think wall what I like about wall. What I like about these books is that he has to rely persuasion to kind of get by doesn't mean he's not physical. There's a lot of action in the books and But. But he is a true amateur sleuth who has nothing to do with. Justice and basically starts out he lives on the Rainbow River, which is a real. River Donnellan Florida about two hours north where I. In he's he's in the river because data's friend's house by the water and finds his friend dead on the Bank of the river. With an alligator in the process of Jim up. But it's clear that the alligator did not kill him so. One thing leads to another and the villain in the story overplays its hand. And attempts to kill. Walt. And it becomes very clear that he has to do. Something a balance it's no. A- paranoid. It's legitimate in in the Diet figuring out. took. Let's see you also, right. Does poke at the series also correct. Those books like you fun. Grind House. I I. Guess. Okay so Basically the Grind House was forty second street movie theaters in the Sixties Seventies in eight Times Square. And They Kinda just show like all the really gross horror movies the karate movies, all kinds of stuff you know movies that were generally looked down upon, but also provided extremely visceral thrill. And I love those movies I think they're A. A love cult movies, and so my grind house pulse series is basically me coming up with ideas for grind house movies, it putting them at goes. It's different than like the wall Asher stuff is war. Thriller Mystery Thriller Suspense Ryan How's Paul is pushed things over the edge a little bit more. you know there's more violence and there's You know just like you'd see in those insane movies and they're really they're. Their books of movies I would love to see. Yeah Yeah. You. Should check public domain deserves some really crazy things that you probably already know that. That's for sure. Oh my gosh. If you receive Nanos hands a fate. Badly. I had yes. Oh my God. That's all say about that. There's some movies that are just so bad. You have to see them. That's one of them. Well, that's a little part of my resume I produced Herschell, Gordon Lewis's last movie. Own Donahue Herschel is he's the guy. He was the first guy to put Gore in a move back nine hundred and sixty three in the movie blood feast. and He did other movies like wizard of Gore or girls and two thousand maniacs. E, Kinda started it all and he was. Low budget exploitation filmmaker and I had the great fortune of. Meeting him in basically getting to produce a movie for one of my heroes. While that's fantastic. That's wonderful To get back to Walt. Is there an overall story ARC in series? So the first book was really just a test to see if I write a book. Well and that feeling. Of. Really sort of rabbit story. There was a slight. Subtle hints. To where it could go beyond that story. Then after I thought about it and I liked the process and I thought the book went well and I didn't get demolished by reviews as like yeah I'll continue the so. As it exists now there's a three book. Arc. Where each is a complete story of their full length novels, but the villain is the same in the three of them. The Antagonists Casino tag is more of a secret organisation kind of thing than just one person specifically. So there's arc with that and then in between each novel. I, I wrote an Avella. And those are side stories, featuring walt and some of the same characters from the boat but not related to that big overarching story. So. Just kind of Nice it's sort of like a breather in between, but you still get to spend time with the characters. That's cool. Yeah. Most of those are. Rooted in the fact that. Waltz basically best friend up on the river where he lives. Dining digi who is actually a criminal biker. And he's into all kinds of criminal stuff but he's just Kinda like one of those Florida Good Ole boys who are fun to be around and for whatever reason he likes wall is completely not of his world. So in the NOVELLAS. Those. Tend to focus on D. G. Getting Wall to do something for digi in that usually on the danger things like that, and and that's what cell shock which giveaway book for this interview is one of those things. Lead. US

The Joy of Photo Contests!

"Welcome back to another episode of this week in photo him. Your Hose Frederick Johnson Today on the show. I got my friend Mr. Ori- guten. He's the Co. founder over a company called view book. They specialize in photography contests or has agreed to come on. Let me pepper him with questions about the state of the photo contest industry where view bug is has been where it is now and where it's going Ori-. Welcome to the show man how you doing in great. Something to see you here. You as well as long time to time agreed on. In person good to see you over the camera, I. Know I know I think what was the last time we hung out was? Was it over drinks and San, Francisco? That's right. Yeah, no, that was great. To, see you again. Good to see that you're you're you're happy and healthy? Your sort of withstanding or weathering? This whole pandemic thing is everything. Same Kelty where Downing San Diego. Everybody's working remotely but. no-one would everybody's doing well. Yeah, no, that's awesome. That's awesome. Okay, let's dive in. It's Friday. Respectful of your time here, so let's dive in so view Bug Dot com view bug dot. com is the name of the site that you co-founded. What's the origin of that? Why why a photography contest sort of software as a service engine? Restarted View Book Further Kabbah a little bit over ten years ago when My Co founder Jimmy being enthusiasts, photographers were getting friends Amoeba family. Saying Hey, you. You have a really cool photo. You should to this contest or to that contest, and they would send links via email, or like a heard about these other contests, and then, when looking at those pages or sites. Some of them look Dina. IFFY or Scammy I wasn't sure if I wanted to send. My image didn't know what was going to happen with the copyright etcetera so. Start talking about it. Where we thought that it would be wise to build a community where the contests would be the backbone of the community and make sure there's a place where photographer feel safe and comfortable joining contests while giving it an interesting twist were contest used to be only Samira photo and see if you will not. The way we do it, this moral forgets contest, but there's a whole community around it. So that was the initial thought. We need to solve that problem of not knowing the contents was legit or not. Let's make it a safe environment and build a community around. I love that I. Love that because you hit it right on the head, one of the one of the reasons I. See this a lot in own in the twit pro community. One of the hesitant. Or the factors that lead to hesitance to submitting the photos is because of that terms and service that go along with some of these more shady contests. You know there's like yeah. We have the the possibility of winning all these great prizes, but we own your photo and we can sell it, and you know in perpetuity for three thousand years. You, know all this for for for the chance of winning something that you're probably not GonNa Win Anyway Talk. About how view bug is different from that. We break it where we go completely the opposite. They're photographers. Always keep the right to their images. We cannot sell. The images sat at all and again. We're photographers ourselves. A wilder stunned where we stand on giving the rights of your images, and you mentioned it try. Contest you participate, and you have a very low chance of winning, so it's not only up about being top top winner and the contest we have a different type of disease of the image, and then it's really cool. We give you a lot of analytics behind your submission. The other images you can get inspired by seeing the galleries of the participants and there's boarding blind voting, so we can share with you where you're doing ranking our comparing university others enjoying your images like are they cannon arts or It's. So we make it fun interesting and as part of an educational process rather than the participation nor gone this process so. It's very different. Feel look and feel when you participate in our contests. I like that I. Like that that that like you, said the exact opposite of give us all your photos and we'll do whatever we want with them, and you're probably not going to win anyway. which kind of praise on the uninformed in the week you know those kind of contests. That's interesting. Talk, talk a little bit about the community side of it, so is it. Is it just as giant group of photographers in every now and then contests spouts up that they can compete in, but otherwise they're talking amongst themselves, or is there another sort of modality to it? So there's another one. Right now. Over three million strong members. So. Every day it's so inspiring to see that type of photographers are joining the community, and it's all types of photographers from board threats to landscape to architecture. It's unbelievable. Finally Photographers and We know there's different type of photographers and there's different experts at the friend John Russo. When you join view book, there's always between thirty to fifty. Different contests not are open for submissions, so you can really explore your great DVD's. We see a little for the referees that are experts for example at architecture, and they see our context, and they reach out to us, and they say you know. I never thought that I could. Join contest out four drinks, but I saw that contest and I got inspired. I try order now I'm getting a lot of people. Congratulating me on my portrait, so we tried to have many different types of contests with different themes and subjects,

Knock and Announce

"In two thousand fourteen, a woman was pulled over by Myrtle beach police in Myrtle beach South Carolina. The woman was black and the police said they pulled over because of a tail light. They found a small amount of marijuana in her car and she was given the option to avoid charges if she told them where she got marijuana. As one officer later put it, she was asked quote who she knows. She, says she did know someone, but she didn't know his full name. She only knew him as Jules. My name is Julian bitten and right now. I'm in a Conway South Carolina. The police drove the woman to Julian Buttons apartment. They wired her with a hidden video camera and audio recorder, and then they gave her a hundred dollars and told her ass. Julian button to sell her marijuana. Julian is black and in two thousand fifteen. He was thirty years old. It was a friend of Mario de time girlfriend it was. She had some problems after father who died, so she had a medical discharge from the military. And she had asked me for some and I gave her some in first, and they told her to come back and buy from me, so that's what she did. The woman came out with what police recorded as approximately seven grams of marijuana. She'd done what the officers asked her to do, but something had gone wrong with the video recording. So they waited a few weeks, gave her hundred more dollars and drove her back to Julian Ben's house. What I didn't expect her to come back and buy. That was kind of strange that she came back and wanted to buy was like okay. We'll hear what that's not naming. are this ain't something is going become a habit? She would for her because I knew her situation I don't know I think I think she was pretty much more scared than anything when police stopped. If, they if she didn't give some if she didn't give a person gave. It's award that she was going to go to jail and Louis, her military benefits. On the second visit. The woman bought approximately eight grams. And there a video recording.

"You have a SPA business or Business frankly any kind of business.

There are some spas that have both licenses have a SPA license and the beauty licence, so they right now our land to open when on they can only provide certain treatments, which is those beauty types of treatments manicure pedicure facial, for example they can't do message, even if I have beauty licence, but we cannot open with as spa license, and just do those beauty services at the moment. That's just not the way it works, and given the current situation, ease. In some way shape or form potentially going to continue, there might be different variations or In the future, and even if there is not the way we deal with these future types of crisis and pandemics, infections is going to be informed and maybe dictated by what we're going through right now and the way that we've reopened with certain businesses with certain licenses is a format and a formula. They will probably follow in the future so maybe right now. It's a good time to start looking at what are the licenses? Could you potentially hold for Your Business?

Why Are There 60 Minutes In An Hour Instead of 100?

"Today's question is why do we measure time the way we do at the first glance? It seems like it's a sensible thing. Until we start delving into it, so let's start with the day. What is a day? A day is just the amount of time that it takes our globe to make a full rotation on its axis, simple right, but then we divided day into twenty four parts for some reason, and then of those twenty four hours we measured those in sixty minute increments for some reason, and then we get down to A. A minute we measure that in terms of seconds again a collection of sixty for some reason, but when we get two seconds, we measure those in the most popular numerical system today, the decimal system, so we talk in terms of a hundredth of a second, Ori Millionth of a second, but why? How do we even start measuring days in dividing them this way well, the Babylonians were measuring time in what's called a sexist decimal system as opposed to a decimal system. They were based on sixty instead of base ten so earlier, we said the decimal system is the. The most popular and it makes sense right because the vast majority of human beings have ten fingers. It's very easy for the human species to count to ten. So why would you use something that relies on sixty? Or why would you use something that relies on twelve well? When we look at the Babylonian System, it actually makes some sense. There is some method to this ancient madness and here's why if we use the base ten idea ten to one hundred, the notation that we would have to make measure a specific time of day would become ridiculous very quickly. Quickly and complicated as well. The thing is that sixty has some advantages because sixty. If you just break it down is essentially five times twelve, then it has both the advantages of a ten and twelve as a system, so that is why it makes sense for us to use sixty seconds and sixty minutes, but the big explanation that no one's figured out yet is how this spread around the world did it happened because it was an accident of history. Did it happen because it was really the most efficient way that human beings have figured out how to measure? And one last thing we're all familiar with a PM. AM stands for Anti Meridian, and PM stands for Post Meridian. These are terms that came about during the Roman era when they used to divide the entire day into two things just am and PM. This was so important in fact that they used to have these people whose Job was to wait until the sun crossed over, so they could run to the forum and say everybody. Okay, it is noon. It is officially he am and the reason. Why is because lawyers were required to show up by new?

An Hour Forever our they spent doing that big score as my friend Said when he was independent Tintri again. I'll say one more story that that he used to say when somebody would be talking about planning another crime or trying to involve him and when they get out they do this and do that because they knew he had some skills dude got skills and and he'd say you know you haven't done enough time yet when you enough time you won't be talking that dry so You know These words of wisdom from Oris Beta Ori.

"I kill demons It seems like the story is trending towards him having an enemy between heaven and Hell Essentially so you're gonNA find heaven in the next one. Let's hope no. I think you're GONNA fight. I think you're gonNA fight angels just like demons in this game The treading perfect. Yeah so yeah I mean it's not GonNa win any awards for story But what it should win awards for is shooting mechanics and how well it layers. Just collecting things and upgrading. Whether it's your suit whether it's weapons whether it's your your Just general you I everything can be upgraded in this game and they constantly between interactions in this game which are fast and frenetic and just perfectly. Fine tuned They they just give you so many options to kind of play the way you WanNa play the game and on top of that Just the shooting in this game is just so fucking good from an arcade shooter. It's it it like. I said. It's the gold standard. I can't say nothing but good things about the so far. It's sort of a it's it is it's a masterclass in optimization right right now when a lot of games are coming out and being like maybe you can get a hundred frames Do you miss. This is come out with a fantastic looking game that runs hundred and forty four. And you don't have to have jared rig to do it I've seen a lot of feedback saying like this is frame. Rates are phenomenal. There's no rubber banding scheme looks fantastic and it runs fantastic. Which I think is great to see. Yeah it is. It is incredible. And then they're not skimping like You know there are robust multiplayer features that I haven't dug into yet You know one of my major. Criticisms with the first game was how bad the multiplayer was in the first game and they Took that head on and realized you know the devs realized that it was bad. And supposedly we're going to correct it in this in the sequel Oddly enough I tried to play it and it told me it's very weird. I tried to play it after I played like. I don't know two missions yesterday and just talk about it here and it was like We recommend that you play this mission before you play multiplayer and I hadn't. I still haven't got to that mission so I don't know what it's GonNa show me in that mission but they're like you can play multiplayer if you want to but we strongly strongly recommend that you play this mission before you hop into multi-player but so so yeah so i. I don't know what's going to happen in that. That mission. Who knows but what I can say. Is that This campaign so far is fantastic. It's tracking really really well. I've read that. It's about fifteen hours to finish which is pretty big for a single player. First person shooter campaign. Yeah that's that seems I. I mean I haven't checked. That seems a little a little. The fuck was that Are you being attacked? My cats the cat's arrived. The cats have hit their their threshold. Fuck with you. I was being so quiet about their rival thinking. They wouldn't everything out and makes the most noise that I hit. They found and just knocked on. The floor from Dizzy Heights. All here and I apologize. Our listeners. Need to realize one of the best parts about playing on line with bids is every borderline every Sunday at least once usually constantly. He's just like fuck. Fuck cats like they're either on him or their shitting near him or they're just like. They seem to terrorize him. The golden retrievers are just like laying there like. Yeah Yeah so on my dock and be a pain in the ASS. My dog can be a huge pain in the ASS. Sometimes but this. This is a quote from mid literally this week. Get your stinky ass out of my face cat. And that made me Lapsley. Well my stinky ass out of my face cat Pacific Ni. The little kitten hasn't yet to learn how to clean her own ass and she stinks and as with cats that like you they show you. They're assholes and so she is. She's listened so I show people a wild wild trade. She is listened fund to have climb up onto your table and then present. Who also to you while? You're in the middle of APEX. That's just how can cats and a good cat dead and so they fucking love me and because of that. They won't leave me alone ever like miracle we have made it fucking two hours into this recording and this is now when they show up that is the that is the silver lining of the earthquakes and corona virus. That are going on. The this is perfect. I'M GONNA report more back on On Doom. I'm GONNA play the shit out of this game Wall I'm off for the next little bit. I'll finish it and I will tell you this is like absolutely must play like you mids. You GotTa play this fucking game and all of our listeners. Got To play this fucking game or this is just kind of like a It depends on who you are if this is going to be good for you or not but So far what I've seen this is definitely better than the first game which is promising because the first twenty sixteen doom was fucking fantastic celery. Good well I really want to get my hands on. I enjoyed that first one and it took me a while the finally get through and finish it but I did enjoy it Issue IS I really I? I WANNA get to the game of neo to to see. I really liked what they did. The first one so on the second one and then additionally I have picked up this game that everyone's losing their mind about called Animal Crossing New Horizons. I've never played an animal crossing game From Nintendo and this came out yesterday so I don't know that we're going to give you a whole lot of impressions yet but it's A. There's a lot of joy in this game I'll give it that and I quickly I. I knew the general premise. And how this game work? But I didn't quite understand that you play the game and if you play under the game's rules you kind of run out of shit to do because it follows the real the oh the day the time in the real world is the same as the game and when they tell. You well. We're going to get you a house for tomorrow. They mean that your house is not coming until tomorrow. So jared houses work normally do people go and just change their calendar on their systems It it depends from game to game like. Don't don't ask me as the foremost expert on animal crossing like. I haven't played a lot of these games But as far as I understand a lot of people will get sick of this this loop and then just like Go under settings and change the date and it allows you to do that But this game in particular Apparently people that are playing it Reviewers and whatnot have said that you're looking at about fifteen real days Before you get to a point where the game really opens up and you're having a lot of fun with the game so it really depends on how you look at it like if you're star for content and you WanNa just continue to play animal crossing then. Yeah you're going to go in and you're GONNA fast time but if if you're you know I don't know stuck in your house and have tons of games to play and maybe this is your back burner game. Maybe it's not that big of a deal if you fucking just check in once a day For Fifteen Days Fifteen. Real world days to to Get to the fun in this game. So that's exactly where I am. Obviously we have tons of games to play. So I'm not gonNA marathon this game. I'M GONNA play as designed and probably the next time. We talk all be two weeks in a lot. You know I if I have hit the fund. The Fun spot. It's it's an interesting game and it's Nintendo it's well-crafted it looks great. I just I'm not ready to say whether it's funner. It's really relaxing to play this game. You know this is the first one that I played in a long period of time and You know just to give you a rundown of what I've done so far I arrived at an island. I was then told that I have immediate debt for arriving on the island and then I had to do certain things to get out of debt so then I proceeded to Pick weeds for probably thirty minutes. I removed all the weeds on my fucking little patch of Island I then sold those weeds. Because apparently they're worth something in animal crossing world and then I I paid off my debt and then I was told that I would be able to get a loan a thirty year fixed rate mortgage to be more specific so I got that thirty year fixed rate mortgage mortgage for from fucking. Tom Nook and then Tom Nook told me to wait until tomorrow until my house is ready. So my overall impression and a general consensus so far is that Tom nook is a horrible fucking person at board. Tom nook is the son of a bitch. He's not motherfuckers over there always taunting you knew stuff trying to get you in debt game about pretty much. I'm fucking literally. I'm not joking about that. The fucking the fixed mortgage rate. He literally tells you that it's like how he asks you first of all he's like. How's your tent going? And it's like a I don't know three by three squarespace where you can't put anything in and I told him straight up. I was like my tent sucks. Tom Nook and then he was like you know what I can do for you. I can fuck it Hooky with the home.

How Ori and the Will of the Wisps improves one of the best-looking Xbox games ever

"What released today. The Big one today is only and the will of the wisps which is twenty nine ninety nine alternatively it is included with xbox games pass if you subscribe to that service for fourteen ninety nine a month will of the wisps which is. Kinda hard thing to say is a sequel to the two thousand fifteen game. Ori And the blind forest which is gorgeous two D platformer with Metro. Inspirations will of the wisps has somehow managed to be even more beautiful and I say this as a person who plays a lot of video games and looks at a lot of video games so I hope you don't take this as excessive hyperbole but it is seriously one of the most beautiful games I have ever seen. It's incredible I have had a four K. TV for years. But this is the first time I've ever really felt like I'm seeing a substantial benefit to the technology and I think it's mostly due to the diverse color palette and the way light streams through the trees. It really it just looks absolutely incredible. It also plays great. I sometimes as the quality of a game on how willing I am to forgo sleep in order to play and this is a game that kept me up very late last night. I think it's one I would like to give a proper review to here on the podcast. Which is something. I want to do periodically but my early impressions are very positive. There have been reports of the pre release version of the game experience severe issues Ben Kutschera for example over at Polygon wrote after playing the pre release version of orient seeing what condition it is currently in however and receiving an official list of known issues. That should be fixed in the Games day one patch. We've decided to hold the publication of the Games Review. I didn't play a pre release version myself and was able to start with the day one patch so far about two to three hours in. I haven't run into any issues. That doesn't mean there aren't issues. I could just be very lucky but I wouldn't let reports like that scare you off the day. One Patch seems like addressed a lot of issues or he and the will of the wisps is currently sitting at a ninety one on metacritic which is an impressive score. Also speaking of metacritic review embargo lifted last night for neo too though the game doesn't come out until March thirteenth. It's currently sitting at a very respectable. Eighty six on metacritic neo to is the dark. Souls inspired action game from team. Ninja a studio predominantly known for the dead or alive fighting series and the Ninja Guidance series.

"Seven Monday so I just started looking at the conclusion oris I was looking at some other stuff during the regular just plans that it we did that story on Jonah falcon a number of years ago he was the man he was at SFO he's he's supposedly has the world's largest **** and he was at SFO there like Sir you're gonna have to and your pocket is like no they're they're empty and they're like well what's that is I take it in and out of your and it's like taking the back because they thought it was items of many many wasn't so they how big we takin and bigger than a bread along yeah Sir would you like a foot long and then some anyway we don't have an area on him back in the news of the day I have to look through this whole thing yes they had that D. seventy searches he's been on the worry about me I just went through that sitting there like Sir you can go you know search at all nope that'd make this claim we're good there's also a story I thought you guys might have done this last week TMZ reported the the B. Y. U. appalled larger of alter did you hear this error the yeah the cougar the BYU cougar we did that that's a good story like this I could leave a lasting a cool yeah cougar pole vaulting and he got some all stuck on the pole there not not very fun so let's say that it already does it hurts that's a lot of stuff going on in football obviously combine this week by the way how much will you watch the combine every every second I thank god that second I watch every said you know that yeah okay good now and I just was wondering I was just wondering I think the great thing about the kind of religiously well you know it's good for us because normally or go on a right in the middle of our show and you would say so anything a warriors game last night I don't know yeah you're watching yeah I think we have a gas down the line yeah we've been searching for marquise Chris we were actually very very happy about how are you man marquise Goodwin is a good how are you feeling you feel better yeah I'm feeling better just a little soreness that everything's on there yes so today was a surreal day around the NBA you're watching well with when I lay in staff and and clays rave on about buyers for their running langkah who one time was your representative obviously spoke so beautifully so did you did you guys watch it today even as a group or individually marquees and and tell me to rob a bank in your relationship with Kobe Bryant I was able to catch parts of it I size wise the nexus B. I saw Jordan speak for a little bit I saw a partition but I didn't I didn't get the case rods C. H. but I don't I don't have a a big relations with my minimum few times just because it was kind of like a hectic for him you know he was retiring that that summer that I was getting drafted so he's kind of on a long time to time but I live in a medium a few times is working out in Orange County and you know is the president I think that he had in the way he carried himself in the interview that you had when you came in the building was just infectious Marcus Carissa Moore's big man Jonas courtesy the human gas line here on the sports leader just what what was just the general reaction in the clubhouse because you have young guys obviously staffing clay they knew him quite well what what was the first reaction everything my media disbelief this is due at the time I was on my to a so I was able to practice so I was working out by myself and J. C. your account he came upstairs and I'll shoot around and he kind of had like a like a sad demeanor on them and and I was just kind of confused on what was going on because practices going on video cables there is while I was working out in the end we just ask that what's up he said told me fast and I was I was kind of stopped you know and I had to hear it again I was like wait what in the leader's repeated it and I was like kind of stunned and I you know just you idolize these people and you know you kind of look at them as a moral and you know when things like this happen it it doesn't feel real you know and I think even till today is it still doesn't feel real and we are to play the Lakers one time J. since his passing and I go to come in again on Thursday so let's get an update on what's going on with you first of all just how cool is it being from Sacramento going to pleasant Grove high school to be playing for the Golden State Warriors marquees I mean it's amazing I love the opportunity man I just love being close to home alone but at the same time I'm not too close so I have I have my own space I have my boundaries that you said so my family not just right on top of me but they're able to be at every game you know my logs in every game this season that that she's been able to drive to my home and I think it is it helps me a lot just have my family close you know so the first time since I was in high school you know my family able to be at home games you know with with easy convenience you know with the college out of state I played out of state the first few years in the NBA so I think just being home it it makes a lot easier I think of my family and on the marquise Chris is doing this it kind of take us through all this I'm in the the team releases you you come back in and now you're getting more and more opportunities what what is this whole thing but like I mean I think I did that on myself but it's been a opportunity after opportunity I think and I think I made the most out of all of them you know I kind of came into it with with that I'm sure spot dangerous with the training camp deal and things like that and I just came in ready on I think I made the team make a decision whether or not they wanted me to be here and you know I I think I showed an approved that that I belong here you know let alone in the NBA but it on the spot on this team and I just think as the season went on it is it's it was a rough year as far as financial reasons so I think that that's just a lot of the the that's like why a lot of things have happened you know but I don't think I ever I don't take it personally because it was communicated you know the situation that that we were and what happened to release me and bring me back on the two way and then kind of converting and I think that all of it was communicated beforehand so never blindsided me or anything and you know for the first time my car actually felt like somebody wanted me to be somewhere you know and I think just the communication helped me to feel solid and feel like I was one of your you know yeah they're they're great people question Bob is a great guy and see the very honest but did you also communicate to them marquees that an end to the entire league through your agent that I heard you talking after a strong game we had a home where you basically said you told your agent I don't want to go anywhere else you know the only way the June the seventh it was a solid week there where I was shocked that no one to pick you up at age twenty two of the what your skill set but did you get the word out through your agent don't bother that I'm going back to the warriors even though all they have to offer me for right now is a two way deal is that correct yeah I mean after they weighed me in Sacramento I had talked to Steve and I talked to John Lewis and I had told him that I wanted to come back you know and I think in the situation and it's not really about the money you know I think I have plenty of time in my career to make money I think right now it's just an opportunity to solidify myself in this build who I am as a player so I think just being able to be in the situation I felt was best for me so I think the money really didn't have anything to do with it and they they explain to me about the two way and how old work out if I came back so you know never really was any uncertainty of the situation that I was going to be and I just want to be on this team it's interesting because everybody talks about the opportunity but also about the winning culture yet the team's not winning so what what is it about the warriors culture despite the fact they're not winning it feels like a better opportunity than you maybe you could have gotten somewhere else all right they just did it produce a take on the game United we need on every game expecting to win you know I think even in the situation that we're in right now or not at our peak I think that you know we approach each and every game as a serious game you know we're not just gonna throw this season away I think we're kind of trying to benefit from each and every game that we have and just continue to build you know looking forward to next year but also just seizing the moment and right now I'm I'm not marquise obviously if your size and age or young and big and athletic there's a lot to like with your skill set as a basketball player but I got it so I I I like the age that you bring and the other night against the Houston Rockets I think it was Jamie and Leigh went up for a jump shot right in front of your bench and McLemore bell at your clearly stepped under him did not allow him to land you you took a technical because you jumped off the baseline and you were mad and you're protected in your guy and then later in the game when Westbrook got into it and throws that you know L. bull you're over on the bench and you're you're you're going back at him so if you don't if you could share with us what it wanted Westbrook's say to you what did you say back to him and I know you're a football player growing up but you got a little edge to your game that I think is especially playing next to a guy like Draymond is almost required here you I mean I don't think it's really necessary to go into the details of what was said it wasn't anything really bad I just think we're gonna defend in our our team and you know just let him know that we were going to back down and we were there you know because on something don't need to happen you know I think that the way that situation unfolded didn't have to happen that way you know but when when people are in in a situation like that where they're going back and forth and then they come to stand in front your vantage just kind of inviting conflict you know so I think that was all I was saying I was like are you over here the manager certain back and forth you know I don't think it's really necessary to try to bring it back up by doing that so I am I just to save money and make a decision my friends in there to help how much of that comes from your football mentality and and you're pretty good football player worship I think so most of it I think I think I I got away with a lot more when I was playing football because you have helmets on and you can't really see people say for what they're saying so you know I think I have to realize that the I'm exposed to you can you can see and hear everything that I'm saying when I'm out loan plan active once that is not football you know so I think that someone still working on just to pick and choose my moments you know by taking the technical for for Jordan getting on the cut on the three I'm fine with that you know because because things like that happening but you know I just want to be able to contribute as much as I can you know stay composed but at the same time he dates that I have interesting to do a drug offender would be picked up an obvious you guys were in the same draft here or if you were eighth and so obviously we've you've spoken to him he said the same things that you said that he's looking to get with an organization with a did a culture like the warriors what is it like to now have him aboard not as my dog I mean I think for the past three years two years to try to pit us against each other.

What the college admissions scandal reveals about the psychology of wealth in America

"Let's say you're on a first date and anxious to make a good impression. The waiter arrives with the wine list. End Your date asks you to order a bottle for the two of you you know. Virtually nothing about wine. But you don't WanNa look like an idiot or a cheapskate. Eight so you quickly scan the list and point to one of the most expensive bottles on the menu and while yes it is ridiculous to spend one hundred dollars online. That's only marginally more tasty than twenty dollar bottle. It's actually standard human behavior. More than one hundred years ago an American economist named Thorstein Blinn Glenn coined the phrase conspicuous consumption to describe this very thing. You pick the expensive bottle of wine. Not because it's five times better than the cheaper bottle but because has you want to send a signal to your date. I have good taste and I can afford it. Wine is just one example of what's known as a veteran good defined find any good or service that defies the standard relationship between price and demand. Normally when price goes up demand goes down but for goods goods like wine. Fine Art Jewelry and cars rules change. We spoke with Ori- Hefetz an economics professor at Cornell University's SC Johnson in Graduate School of Management. He explained the high price is actually part of the attractiveness in Dublin's Classic Eighteen Ninety Nine book the theory the Leisure Class. He says that high prices have two functions. The first is basically marketing since makers and clothing signers know that most consumers don't have the knowledge or interest to figure out which products are objectively better than others they use price as a shorthand for quality consumers assumed correctly. Oh you're not that. A higher price corresponds to a higher value. The second function of high prices is what Feb Lynn called conspicuous consumption. In this case the consumer's decision to buy the more expensive option has little to nothing to do with the actual quality and functionality of the product. The whole point is for others to see you drinking the expensive wine wearing the brand name close or driving the fancy car heff it said when other people see me he driving an expensive car. That's a benefit in itself. They might think that I'm more successful or that. I'm more desirable as a mate and of course those two functions of high prices often work together. And just look at the recent college admissions scandal in which wealthy celebrities were caught trying to buy admission for their children into elite elite colleges one of the ways that schools market themselves as elite is through their high tuition costs if the University of Southern California costs more than seventy eighty seven thousand dollars a year tuition plus room and board. It must be an amazing education right and because schools like the University of Southern California used their high cost as a signifier of quality so do parents. The wealthy celebrities caught up in college admissions scandals were willing to go to great expense to win brandname status for their your kids in their social circles admission to USC is shorthand that their kids are smart and successful which in turn means that they as parents are also smart successful. Call it the virtuous circle of conspicuous consumption. In less you get caught cheating then. I identified conspicuous consumption. Among on the American upper classes in the late eighteen hundreds. But it wasn't until the nineteen seventies. That economists figured out exactly how it worked as a market force in Nineteen seventy-three we the economist Michael Spence landmark paper on signaling. In which he showed how are consumer choices send important signals that have real economic repercussions Spence won the two thousand one Nobel Prize and economics by explaining how education is used as a signal for productivity in the labor market. The logic is is pretty simple if an employer is looking to hire a new worker he or she will use. The status of the applicants college in which tuition cost is variable as a short short him signal of the applicants relative productivity as a worker Hefetz sites the classic example of someone looking to hire a lawyer the assumption is that a good lawyer lawyer winds cases and therefore has a lot of money so if one lawyer shows up driving a two thousand four Honda Civic and other arrives in a brand new Mercedes. They're sending two very different signals. If the client defines a good lawyer by how rich he or she is then the Mercedes lawyer benefits from conspicuous consumption. Of course a great lawyer could be thrifty or a lousy lawyer could still drive a fancy car. But there's a far higher cost for an unsuccessful lawyer to buy a Mercedes Hefetz said Ah for the good lawyer who actually makes a lot of money. The Mercedes pocket change it's cheaper and therefore more likely for a successful lawyer to send the same signal. The larger question is why do we bother with all these signals anyway. Have it says that there is a much more efficient economic solution Russian instead of buying a fancy car to show how rich you are you could just walk around copies of your most recent tax returns or introduce yourself to potential clients by saying. Hey I'm very wealthy and successful. But of course that's not socially acceptable instead. People who spend money on flashy cars or clothing can hide behind what communists call a functional alibi if you buy a very expensive car for example you can claim that you didn't do it to send the signal that you're rich and successful but simply because expensive cars run better and are more reliable or have better features have said but are they so much better that it's worth spending twenty times the cost of a good standard car. Probably

Decentralization Philosophy Part 1 From Buddha to the Conquistadors

"I've been trying to figure out how to talk about this topic for a while because cryptocurrency is this really kind of strange flat structure. That has all of these little hierarchical structures built on top of it and you can take that analogy and you can really really zoom in on it or you can really really zoom out on it as kind of still true really regardless of how you're looking at it and I think a lot of this has to do with just the nature and sort of the oddness oddness of crypto currency and a Bitcoin as a community right as a movement and as technology that also is attached to people getting rich. Sometimes today I WanNa talk about a topic that I've been calling catalysts and CEOS and take a look at what the crypto currency space looks like. Today what it looked like in the past. Ask Talk about some of the different attributes that got us to where we are today. So Toshi said an interesting precedent. They led with their ideas and to a lesser extent their code and the early sparked a was association that contribution catalyzed first Bitcoin and then the crypto currency movement at large those who believed in that vision given an opportunity to get rich in some cases crazy rich rich and that combination of factors lead. I all coins coins than ICO's SAFT'S STO's and I don't think even talked about on the show before and who knows what will come next because clearly the path of innovation that's occurring here is not over at all but it also created what feels like a strange legacy that we're going to explore today as simply put are charismatic leaders who emerge from that flat structure that is the bitcoin protocol more or less dangerous more or less problematic more or less notable than the mark Zuckerberg's the Elon Musk's Jeff bezos. Goes and Steve. Jobs who really lead their movements. There's not that much of a difference between Associate Akimoto and a Jeff bezos except for the way that they fundamentally went about not inciting the change that now has kind of swept the world in one case kind of the e commerce site of and the other case this digital currency cryptocurrency or blockchain bitcoin movement. Or whatever you WANNA call it. Today's conversation is about decentralized catalysts and centralize CEO's the first thing I thought of when you said SA- Toshi contrasted to Jeff bezos. US was the difference. Between a certain personality type blended with introversion versus extroversion an extroverted rated person who is very smart and capable and intelligent and can see the future almost but wants credit and wants to be the face of an organization and is is comfortable in that role. You end up with someone. Like Jeff bezos. WHO's out there? And he's totally comfortable with that even though he retracts heat sometimes but but she didn't want the credit souto she wants to be behind the scenes and gets everything they needed from just being the mastermind. Mind who's kind of silent and letting other people be the face and I think that's really interesting. If you study personality types. Maybe even like the Myers Briggs. Souto Souto she is like your classic. I N T J personality type. They're like the mastermind architect but they don't need the credit and they don't need to be the face. Jeff Bezos as US would be like an E. N. T. J. who's like the CEO and the leader and wants to be the public face. I think that's a really interesting point. But I think that there's another factor here. Maybe okay which is that. Was it a choice. For Satoshi to take the type of catalyst like behind the scenes never revealed role or was that a factor of the not just the disruptive potential but what was being disruptive of course it was a choice. I mean Saito. She clearly thought through the implications of what they were doing carefully but if they really wanted credit they would have justified some way to take the credit and to be public about it. I think you always have a choice. I think another pretty good way to differentiate so Toshi from Jeff bezos is one of them make several hundred million a year contracting with the CIA Eh and the other one was never heard from one someone spoke to the CIA. I don't know who's point that supports but I think the big different factors that there was a legal path for Jeff Bezos to do what he did and even if he was an introvert. It still a good choice for him to do it. If it winds up that he has all the resources and success. I don't think we see that in practice very often where you have a founder. Who Comes in catalyze is a thing and then leaves before it actually becomes successful and their contribution bution isn't largely replaced by what comes after? I don't think it's so cut and dried that. What Jeff Bezos was doing or wanted to do with there was a legal path for him him? I mean he was doing something that nobody had ever done before. What was that avoiding state sales tax? This is another good point. Jeff bezos has been really interested in Star Trek. He wants to create a star trek future and some of the things he's been doing are totally unprecedented. And so it's not as though you can really say. Oh they're definitely legal because there's never been a legal precedent to establish that they are legal. You could say oh well Ijaz doing things that are a gray area or questionable. But he's he's not asking for permission and that's an admirable quality so you're talking about different levels of challenge and so with Jeff Bezos thing and with examples like like Uber. And other things like that. You are talking about companies that are doing very disruptive things but the question is who are they disrupting and in both of those situations the person or the entity. That's it's being disrupted their state governments and so if you're like a national company and you have presence in many many states that actually gives you the ability to play a bit of a game there. The thing that Uber did is kind of the reverse of what happened with napster. Napster was a decentralized network for file sharing then hit a bunch of national and even global organizations that suited everywhere but it was ultimately fighting these national or global organizations whereas Uber. They weren't fighting any global or national organizations they were fighting lots and lots and lots of little regional monopolies and it's to a lesser extent. Sure about Amazon to every state where they weren't collecting sales tax. Well that was an individual a fight so it's not like they had a problem with the United States. They had a problem with each individual state. Look at what's happened with projects in the lead up to the invention of Bitcoin and all of those centralized charlize alternatives. They were competing with the federal government for fundamentally monopolized right in the right to issue currency and control sort of the dynamics of the money that we all use news. And that's a place where it seems like you couldn't have done this as a CEO because people tried that and they basically all wound up getting arrested or getting all their assets season in many cases giving customers assets assets seized two so as we can see. There are definitely reasons why people do decentralized and centralized organizations whether it's from personal reasons just because they don't want the credit in some cases or in some cases because having the credit is dangerous and on the other hand the advantages of taking on that leadership role. Well the thing about a flat structure is that it's a flat unstructured. So even if you're on top of it still major basically at the same level as everybody else but organizations you know. Companies these are hierarchies for the most part and so if you have that role at the top of that structure well. It's a lot higher than you'd be if you were at the top of a flat structure. All of this comes back to one of my favorite books. It's really short and highly recommended. Did starfish and the spider by Rod Beckstrom Ori Brachman. I read it actually before I became interested in Bitcoin and it was really kind of formation book for me. We've talked about on the show before but it's been like five five years so I figured it wasn't a bad topic to bring up again. The subtitle of the book is the unstoppable power of leaderless organizations. And if you're a fan of decentralized technologies but I've never read it I cannot recommended amended highly enough quoting from the book. A spider is a creature with eight legs coming out of its central body. It has this tiny head and usually eight is. If you chop off the spider's headed headed dies and that's exactly what happens with centralized organization a centralized organization has a clear leader. WHO's in charge? And there's a specific place where decisions are made if you get rid of the leader. You paralyzed realized the organization now. This contrasts with a decentralized organization. which is a fundamentally different animal? It's actually a starfish. At first glance at starfish looked similar to a spider appearance but the starfish is decentralized. starfish doesn't have ahead. The major organs are actually replicated through each and every arm and in reality. starfish is a neural network work. Basically a network of cells instead of having a head like a spider the starfish functions as decentralized network and you can even in nature see situations where a starfish fish has been wounded and for example in arm or even several arms have come off what tends to happen is that actually both pieces will then grow into a complete starfish and it's another another method that they can reproduce. You might say that that's inefficient from a biological perspective to duplicate or pent-up locate editor. How you even and say that word but to make five copies of all of your major orders and neural tissue? GAFFER's them this great advantage of being able to regenerate just from from a small piece it means that while starfish might not have perhaps some of the advantages that a spider does it also isn't vulnerable in the same way. That spider is to damage to you. Know very small parts of it because again it's just not centralized we're GonNa talk about this concept in a different way a little bit later. But what other comparisons do you like besides this kind of starfish in spider for decentralized and centralized organizations and kind of broader question that I wanna come to his how many companies do we actually think or how many any projects do we actually think like rough. ballpark percentage in crypto actually are starfish versus. How many might be using a network that is a starfish but in reality the are themselves

Jonathan Blum: The Usual Uncertainties

"This bookworm and today my guest Jonathon Blum. Who's book of Short Stories? Were talking about today. The usual uncertainties. Well he's one of the very few people who I heard bookworm when he was attending Santa Monica College Enj from Santa Monica College he transferred to Ucla from Ucla. He applied to and got admitted to the University of Iowa. rining program probably then is now one of the very best in the country. Among the people he worked with there were Maryland Robinson but they offered an impressive staff of writers. Here's then as now. Maryland is just retired now. This book is beyond the usual uncertainties. It's twelve stories and these are stories you've written over the last. How many years I'll just over twenty twenty years of you've stories song and I know too that you teach writing in workshops around Los Angeles? Different kinds of workshops story workshops developing character workshops working on your novel workshops workshops so tell me after this time what is the. The short story has to do well Short story seems to be a highly compressed literary form They say it has to have a beginning being a middle and an end though not necessarily in that order I think of myself more disposition as a story writer than a novelist. Maybe maybe I'm one of those people who prefers three or four minutes songs too big symphonies. Shorts story isn't short in anything having other than length. Yes one of the things that I realized as I was reading your stories is that there is a moment where the surface of the story drops away and a dream or trance of what the story is takes its poice and so suddenly you're entering another realm entirely Someone is bringing a baby right to family. How do we know how this is happening? Why this is happening? He feels like Santa Claus. Right he tells us but somehow or other. This is a dream of a story in which a baby can be delivered. Yeah by the family Oral for me without story apples and oranges. I knew that I wanted to have this man. It takes place in nineteen fifty two and he goes out to the countryside outside of Philadelphia and he brings back to Philadelphia with him. A A an unwanted gentile baby and he's going to give of it to his wife sister and her husband to adopt. They haven't been able to have they haven't been able to have a child. Yeah and so will I knew something about what was hint his interior life and what he had in mind and the happiness that he wanted to bring to his sister in on brother-in-law but I didn't know at all what was going to happen in the story. And Yeah I mean he does bring this sort of fantastic gift gift But other than that. I didn't really know where the story was going. And that's often the case. When I begin a story I may have some sense of of where could be going? But I'm I'm pretty open about it. I you know Grace Paley that line about giving your characters the open destiny of life. I really try to do that. I like them to have an open destiny of life within the story. And then I like my endings to be open to because I think characters are still capable table of behaving Unpredictably even after a story and well that story if I remember correctly that that mentions the open destiny of life story by Grace Pantley quota conversation with my father and many many of your stories are conversations with parents. That's right and in fact the first story and a young boy has has gone with his father who's adopter. His parents are divorced. He ends up going with his father for the weekends. His father has to work right and takes him to the hospital. The boy sits around waiting until the father one day says would you like to make my rounds with me and not just that shows him how how to look at an x Ray. Yes it's a pulmonologist but he does locate cancer. I mean because he's looking at chest xrays so he's looking issue Z.. Whether there's cancer or emphysema what the patient's condition is but the marvellous thing. Is that this drops away too soon. The boy is going into the rooms with the father but not just into the rooms where he knows news that a patient has terminal cancer as indicated by the title of the story. The white spot was an indication on the x Ray a cancer but the father is talking to a woman where she from Hungary from Hong Yes. Well her family's ways from Hungary actually. She grew up in the United States. But she's of Hungarian ancestry. The father is getting the Hungarian woman to tell the story. Essentially of anti-semitism in Hungary and the father is teaching the boy that that not how to be a doctor right not how to be compassionate and not how to talk to a patient about death but to show the boy that these people are used to the experience of people coming from extermination camp. Yeah the drop that I'm talking about into the trance of the dream right. The boy is being told a completely different story Ori by his father in collaboration with the Hungarian woman neither of whom know how powerful awful What they're saying is to the boy? The boy is something. Well he's an attractions he's in a trance too. You and I would say the exciting thing to me about reading your stories. I was following following the trance of the story and Song I think of this as leading the reader down the garden path into another realm of reality. Yeah I agree with what you're saying about both of those stories and I think also those stories have immigrants in common and one of the things. I think that unifies the collection is that threaded throughout there are a a number of immigrants from various places in the white spots there in from the white spot there from Russia. But you know I have a Thai emigrant I have Armenian emigrants people that make up Los Angeles. I mean Los Angeles is ten million people in Los Angeles County and three point. Five million of those are not born in the United States so I think the immigrant experiences pretty central to the Los Angeles experience. And of course you know my own family has an immigrant background as well. Well I would go further and say that the stories prove that life is strange. That what a story doesn't do is tell you you you already know in the second story. I mentioned called apples and oranges. None of these people. I know what to do with this outside the family outside the flock outside the tribe baby. Yeah but but the bringer of the baby knows right then in a few weeks it'll be like every other baby right. It will be loved. It will be cared for. It will be ideal yes and it will always be a baby of gentile ancestry. And that's something that I wanted to explore usually it's Jews who are trying to assimilate into the larger culture but this will be a baby that is going to be assimilating into Jewish culture which I just really enjoyed that aspect of the story.

"It's really well done. And yeah, I guess there's a one featured that John called out in our review or max Oris, which is something that the toggle web app for desktop computers. Does very well is the ability to group related timers. So, for example, if during the day, you'll be working on and off on different projects, the toggle web app aggregate s- project all the times belonging to the same project into one condensed view. And there's a button on the right to that you compress to expand all of those timers, and it's just a way to condense all of the related timers into a more compact list. And I would like to see a similar group in, in time areas. Well, because right now timely only lists your timer. Your timers in reverse chronological order. So from, from the latest to the oldest, but I would like to see the grouping like the toggle web app for desktop because for some reason. The toggle mobile app, also does not do grouping because the toggle mobile at basically, does nothing. Yeah. I'm what it does it just continues to do it in varying ways of bad at never known applicator. Give him some credit. They launched the ipad version Amir two weeks ago. They did. I mean, at least honestly, at least finally exists, but donate it because time ary is universal. Yes. Of course and it's very good. It's one of I'm going to call it. It's going to be for sure one of the best Appalachia's of the year in two thousand nineteen. I mean it's super awesome. We all use it. A Mexico is really good. Yeah. So. Fully now.

So the issue is we all probably in our contacts have people that we text with all the time or talk to all the time, and they don't have a photo in our contacts. It's just a great circle with their initials over it. And look, I don't wanna live like that. I wanna live, looking at people's faces and in the past before this out that you have to like, go around at Twitter and finding people's pictures, maybe a picture of meta wedding, and you, you drop it in a context on the MAC, but then it beach balls and crashes, because it's context on the MAC and it was very difficult to keep your contact database photos.
