Yeah they all boys all the chief he was regarded as chief and they were different tribal groups but they will call him the chief and of course. I very indignant and tell him to speak to me himself. You know type of crazy. What happened at the concert at that camp. Where have you been reading the company. Guinea boys will always a great hit because they were great singing and dancing and very romantic type things in the eyes of young girls and it was final night and doing a concert and then suddenly he broke into. Oh carol i am better. Fool this song and kind of guess that sealed it for me. But i think for him. It was a bit of a holiday romance. How had burri ended up at toowoomba. Grandma well very few had educated were getting education those days and he was at a local school where suddenly the opened up the scholarships for property guineans to come down to australia for education. Kind of it's suddenly. I don't colonial scholarship. That there was a global decolonization movement. And they will basically know internationally. Qualify popper guineans indigenous company unions. And so there was scholarships awarded and he was in school at the time. He was probably officially too old for the scholarship but he was quite a short person and one of his teachers put his name because they recognize the talent in the leadership had and so he got the scholarship. What did he tell you about his early life. Where he started live well he was actually born during the war. When his village people were evacuated to a in an area east of port-moresby to a village down their same language group. They will live in camp down there. And that's where he was born in his early life until he was about eighteen. Months was there and then he came back over to parry village. Which is the village that he's from on the outskirts of port-moresby city toowoomba where he then came over to boarding school in queensland would have been a very white town in the nineteen sixties wasn't a very cold town and a very whole town that's true. Was it like for this young man from papua new getting. I don't. I don't know he didn't talk about that very much at all. They're a small group of company unions. Students were sent to bagram someone to ipswich and various schools. Mostly in queensland and i don't recall him experiencing racism per se. I mean we did as a couple what happened later carol. What sort of experiences did you have with durian public. Oh one time. He came down from school to have an operation some work done on his ear and had have exterminations for that and i must say i wake school with my mother's permission to go and meet up with him in town and It was quite interesting. We will walk along. The street together in an elderly gentleman. Really probably wasn't a gentleman. But i'll call him a gentleman he he looked at me any special me and and said you. Filthy woman quite incredible. I mean i actually felt pity for the man..
Wet Notes - 7-18-21
"This is what notes here on scuba shack radio for sunday. July eighteenth two thousand and twenty one first up. Today is an update on the upcoming boston. Sea rovers clinic. Historically the clinic was held in the early part of march just before the start in the northeast dive season. The show actually happened in march. Two thousand twenty just before the country shut down it was probably the last scuba diving show before cove. It wasn't possible to conduct the clinic in march. Two thousand twenty one as we were still at a high point of covy nineteenth spread infections so the decision was made to move the show to the first weekend of october in two thousand twenty one fall in massachusetts. That should be pretty neat. Tickets are on sale now for the boston. Sea rovers to day clinic in danvers massachusetts. Right now the early bird special is still available. You can attend the daytime. Saturday and sunday clinic along with the saturday night. Film festival for seventy five dollars. You can pick and choose your options and that's a pretty good deal. Don't wait check out the boston. See your oversight for all the details and get your tickets now now. Here's something new to help you with your fish identification. It's something called name that fish dot com name. That fish dot com was created by a guy named jake easterling and he is the co founder of a company called scuba. School botox mission is to reduce the cost and time requirements to monitor coral reefs by using artificial intelligence autonomous underwater vehicles and citizen science. I guess and of course this work. Jake developed a database of fish and came up with the idea of taking people's underwater video footage and identifying fish in the video. If you go to the name net fish dot com website you can view short video on what the finished product looks like. Jake also has assured Tutorial on how to make a submission the site says it will accept dot m. p. four emo v dot j. peg in png files. Max file. Size is one hundred megabytes and must be at least seven hundred. Twenty p or higher processing time is one to five days the more fish more processing the rare species. The longer it takes to verify and if your quality isn't that good don't be don't need more time to process. There's a little bit of disconnect on pricing. Jake says into in his short tutorial that you can set any price you think is best but there's also a button that says it costs three ninety nine in any event. Why don't you just go out and take a look at name. That fish dot com. I recently hadn't really interesting email. Come across my desk a few days ago and it was from reef divers. If you're not familiar with reef divers they operate with the clearly came in resorts. Cobol coast on grand came and the little cayman beach resort and the beach resort. They're known for their valet diving. Well reef divers is expanding our operation in the caribbean to turks. Keiko's now they are partnering with east bay resort on south. Keiko's it looks like they plan to be up and running there by late. August east bay resort sits on a mile long beach and boasted. Every room has a beach view. To get south goes she'll need to fly into providence jalis and then you can take either a short air hop over or board the ferry. It's not that long of a ride resort officer an all inclusive option. That seems pretty good reef divers outstanding operator in the caymans so sure that you can look forward to superior valet service from nemo turkson. Keiko's as well so many places to go diving. What it dilemma. Just about every week. Get an update from michael light. Any contains various tips and tricks for better underwater photography plus they also provide some product updates but also in this email is some other interesting information last week. They introduced me to an organization called washed ashore and the articles title said using discarded plastic to save the ocean. Now washed ashore. It is a five. Oh one three or c three nonprofit arts and environmental education organization aimed at bringing to light the world's plastic pollution problem. Well how well washed ashore started by angela ponzi who is a lifelong lover of the ocean and after the death. Her husband from a brain tumor. She turned to the ocean for healing. What she also found was that the ocean needed healing as well so she turned her artistic talents into creating sculptures. That are marine-related using the plastic. That is washed up ashore and they do some spectacular sculptures. I was also amazed by the fact that they have over fourteen thousand volunteers. Working with washed ashore. These are not small sculptures. Either you can check them out at washed ashore and take a look at some of their work. You will be amazed well. I'm sure that we've all heard about the billionaires who are competing to go into space amazing stuff for someone who grew up at the start of the space race in the nineteen sixties. But there's also another race going on and that's the race to build the world's deepest pool at the top of the list. Right now is deep dive. Dubai located in nod al sheba. Which is fifteen minutes from downtown dubai. It's an amazing sixty meters deep. That's one hundred ninety seven feet and contains fourteen million liters of water or three point. Seven million gallons. The pools constant thirty degrees celsius or eighty six degrees fahrenheit. It is team doesn't abandon sunken city. Now that's pretty cool. They have an onsite hyperbaric chamber restaurant gift shop and dive shop. Put this in perspective. The other deep pools around the globe include. Why forty in italy at forty two point one five meters deep spot in poland at forty five point four meters and there's either one coming online or it's online and crom cornwall england. That's called blue vis at fifty meters deep. I wonder if there's some kinda limit on just how deep can build a pool. I'm sure we'll be amazed and finally today. Here's another message in a bottle story. this time. It comes from michigan. It seems that jennifer dour the owner and operator of nautical north family adventures of scuba snorkeling. Glass bottom boat company was cleaning a windows on her glass bottom boat in the cheboygan river when she spotted the bottle inside. The bottle was a message from ninety. Five years ago it read will the person who finds a bottle return his paper to. George morrow cheboygan michigan until where it was found. The message was dated november. Nineteen twenty six. Jennifer posted this on social media and george morrow daughter michelle who's now under seventies reached out michelle indicated that her father was probably eighteen years old when he put the message out. There sounds like the battle didn't travel very far. However now i wonder just. How many messages in bottles are out there. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes here on
How the Olympics Is Working to Be More Environmentally-Friendly
"Organizers. Have pledged the games will be safe from the pandemic. they also say they'll be environmentally friendly. Npr's anthony kuhn takes a closer look at that claim last month. Grandiose music's welded a ceremony to unveil symbols of olympic sustainability when simple comes courtesy of olympic sponsor procter and gamble stanislav vesa. Ceo of png's. Japan subsidiary introduced the podiums on which athletes will get their medals. The tokyo atlanta twenty podiums are made for use plastic packages directly collected by consumers and then recycled even the gold silver and bronze part of the symbolism. They'll be extracted from recycled cell phones and other gadgets to make the athletes medals but some analysts say the symbolism of sustainability exaggerates the reality unfortunately the data show that stability in all dimensions is decreasing over time from nineteen ninety. Two to twenty twenty. That's fan daniel wolf. At the university of lausanne switzerland he co authored. A study of the sustainability of recent olympic games wolf define sustainable as having limited ecological impact promoting social justice and being economically efficient. These goals he says tend to take a back seat to the ambition to put on dazzling mega events but wolf and some environmental groups. Do give olympic organizers credit for at least trying. Monaco konishi is the climate and energy project leader at wwf japan. She praises the games energy plan. So the extra electricity that is required for the tokyo olympic will be one hundred percent renewable energy and that could be a very good role model for the future olympics. The games will of course still produce carbon emissions. But she says the organizers have already secured more than enough carbon credits to try to offset the greenhouse gases. The games

Automatic Identification of Outlier Galaxy Images
"Shamir from kansas state university. I invited you on to talk about the paper automatic identification of outliers in hubble space telescope galaxy images. So a lot of fun stuff to get into maybe to start. I think everybody knows a little bit about the hubble telescope. Could you tell us about the data we get back from it. Are these just. Png files or what are you. Start from caso. It will happen space. says civil instruments on hubble space telescope not just the main camera but it collects all sorts of the we know the hubble deep field which is when freeing that was one segment of the sky was going for civil days very long exposure goldie but other surveys done by hubble space telescope and i was i into the cosmos survey of several shirley lodge survey covering a relatively large part of the sky explains the cosmos was to score degrees. Doesn't sound but in help terms this. Because bill goes really deep deeper than guam-based those scopes. So that's what. I covered the data that you get his image data that i used incomes informants feats debts former. That is very common in a strong meets. Not very common outside feels strongly but that's the standard format of astronomy eats. Uniqueness is that it allows to make the metric measurements for the day dining j. peg form. It's like that we often use. I know in image netease like that. We cannot remake safety for to metric measurements because the dynamic range. Compression away the feeds. That's a each week.

A venture backed creative and media analytics agency famous for building brands on youtube with capabilities to also originate co create and validate new brands. Thanks so much for joining me today jess and it's a pleasure to be with you. It is a pleasure to have you here. And we're gonna be talking about youtube which i have to tell you is such an interesting topic for me because it's one of those things that i play with but i'm not really sure that i am doing what i could be doing to really maximize it so while i know the listeners of this i'm looking forward to getting a lot out of it as how fun. Yeah the one thing that Is been you know since my departure from procter and gamble. We spent more than a decade now on the youtube platform. So it's it's kind of ironic that it's been you know at that platform. You launched in in two thousand six is now quite an old platform. I honestly but still one that i think has major impact for how you create awareness and trump for products. So i look forward to talk to you. Yeah definitely and and you know what everyone says is video is the thing and so while youtube has been around it and my understanding. Is that for the longest time. Youtube has been like the second most searched site on the internet after google. That's correct that's that is still a factor that the second most used search engine people don't get that is youtube behind of course google and all of owned by google And so what. I like to say if you don't have at least a channel if you don't have some content that is searchable with the right words etc you're foregoing the second most you search engine in the world crazy crazy and and i think people might have sort of grown up with this idea that unless you're doing a how to video or sh showing someone had a take a washing machine apart and put it back together. Which is what. My husband uses it for That you don't need to be there but that's not really true anymore. Yeah definitely not in fact if you take a look at the most significant growing trends I haven't seen this now for for for a few months but but it's probably still holds true. You know how to videos are a major growing piece All of several categories including beauty and and skin care and all of that those are major categories and then if you look at the educational components and educational being a very broad topic but if you just take a look at khan academy or or the number of sites on there that are just geared for educational learning. I joke around. You could get from from youtube and it would be more valuable than a than a stanford or harvard degree because the content is so incredibly rich. Yeah that's interesting. I think you're probably right about that. Because it's practitioners teaching what they now. So you're getting it from the horse's mouth so to seek yes exactly yeah okay So what do you think is the biggest mistake that business owners make when they're building a brand on youtube that's actually an easy one and Ended up being one. That has been the case for some time. People are starting to figure this out but one of the biggest mistakes you can make is having content designed for another platform even another digital platform. Instagram facebook video. And that's done just assuming that. Oh you can just repurpose that to youtube. And the reason why i say that is that in general we found we were one of the first Consumer products so one of the famous parts of my story you know having served a couple of decades at proctor and gamble and then leaving and then joining the startup world and my first company was a company called or brush inc a or brush tongue cleaner. And it was this crazy cool product. That was patented from dr bob wag staff and he had tried to sell it to png and he had tried to license it to johnson johnson and it was was a tongue scraper. Ninety percent of bad breath comes from bacteria on your tongue and he had created a really great product t to remove bacteria from the tongue and he had tried to go about it. marketing it With traditional means one of his last failed efforts was a was an infomercial where it just failed miserably. And he ended up meeting with a couple of young guys. Here in lake city utah. Jeff harmon and And neil harmon and jeff was just one of these guys. That really wasn't early guy on youtube and was doing all new. All these insights and outs and And so we ended up launching this product on youtube. I was the angel investor and eventual. Ceo of or brush and the cool story about war shits in two thousand seventeen youtube. Recognize the ten most iconic admiral moments on youtube from the two thousand five launch of youtube and brush was one of those ten. You would've done. You may not have recognized or brush but you would recognize the other nine it was it was always like a girl. Campaign was the jeff gordon. Pepsi campaign was the kyrie irving Pepsi campaign with uncle drew. They were just these really iconic youtube long form campaigns that people are starting to figure out that maybe fifteen second or a thirty second or one minute was not the best way to to create awareness and trial for your products and services
Update Alert: Critical 0-day in Chrome
"Speaking of being challenged. The hacker news summed this up by writing attention readers in. You are using Google Chrome Browser on your windows Mac or Lennox computers you need to update your web browsing software immediately to the latest version Google released earlier today, and this was last week. So you know. Even, though that was last Tuesday even my own always sort of sluggish chrome had already updated but. This one just you our listeners may just want to make sure that they're now running eighty-six dot zero, dot forty, two, forty, dot one, one one. However, there's much more to last week's emergency update than what drove it, but we'll start with that. So last Tuesday's released closed five vulnerabilities. Four were rated high severity one was medium and one of those four high severity vulnerabilities was what we're talking about was a zero day that was seen exploited in the wild by being exploited by attackers who are using it to hijack targeted computers so You know that nasty one it was numbered CV e twenty, twenty, fifteen, nine, ninety, nine and what's significant is that it's a heap buffer overflow in free type, which is the widely used open source font rendering library, which is part of chrome but many other things. Various bounty payouts were or will be made for the other four vulnerabilities, but this biggie was discovered in house by Google's project zero researcher Sir J Glazunov. Even. So even though it was found in house, it was subjected to an accelerated seven day public disclosure released deadline because the flaw was under active exploitation and that's the project zero guidelines. You know you get. You get thirty days for things that like, yeah. You gotta gotTa get these things fixed but if it's if it's being used if it is a zero day, you get a week. As it happens, this only took one day for Google to begin pushing the update which they did on the twentieth they found out there was discovered on the nineteenth they had. They were pushing the fixed one day later, which is interesting because it wasn't even really their problem it was in the free type library not in chrome. Sir J immediately. Notified the free type developers who also developed an emergency patch to address the issue. And had it available the next day on October Twentieth And so that's free type two point one, zero, point four. This is significant because free type is everywhere. Without, revealing details of the vulnerability Ben Hawks who is project Zeros technical lead warned via twitter there while the team has only spotted an exploit targeting chrome users. It's absolutely possible that other projects that use any earlier versions of the free type, library and there will be roughly a gazillion might also be vulnerable and are advised to deploy the fix included with free type version two, point one, zero, point four, he tweeted while we only saw an exploit for chrome other users. A free type should adopt the fixed discussed here, and then I've there's he provided a Lincoln tweet I've got the link here in the show notes. And it is part of the stable release of free type again, two point one, zero, point four. So what we do know thanks to what Sir J has shared is that the vulnerability exists in free types function load s bit PNG. So it's load underscore S B it underscore PNG which processes P. Images embedded into Fox. It can be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code just by using specially crafted fonts with embedded PNG images, which out to be something that free type supports so in no not just curbed lifts, but you could embed images so and since web fonts can be specified by a web page, and since the browser will go download the font and then render glimpse from those fonts turning a theoretical free type flaw into an active exploit would not be difficult
Leslie Blodgett, former CEO and founder, bareMinerals
"Hey everyone this show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. This is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen today Leslie Logic joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is a trail blazer of the beauty industry leslie founded bare minerals, which she grew into a global empire by tapping into the power of marketing and community. And in two thousand ten, she saito acquired it for almost two billion dollars while her new best selling book. Pretty good advice. Give some pretty great advice and is available now leslie were except to have you welcomed skin from the couch. Thank you so much for having me looking forward to hanging with you guys. We have been very excited to do this. We met Leslie at a conference that we were at about almost two years ago year and a half ago we. Didn't know who it was like we knew her name, but we didn't know that she was the Leslie blodget. We just saw this like friendly looking who was wearing this very cool hat and standing outside getting coffee and she came up to us in and you're a huge fan of the scam and when we realized it was you I think we both like didn't even know what to. stadio. So I think it goes to show like you have such a friendly personality and. That makes everyone feel comfortable in talking to you and is also harshly how you are able to talk yourself into any room in in your early days of your career, which we're GONNA get into. So let's start off with our standard first question, which is Skim your resume for us our. Newspaper Out McDonnell's what did you do at McDonalds? Everything. I started with like cleaning toilets and sweeping the parking lot and then moved up to making burgers it Max then at fit. Two years of fit graduated in turned beauty companies. Always wore is shadow since I'm little kid went to work in the industry or selling makeup behind the counter spritzing fragrance bloomingdales in New York City in macy's met my husband at macy's while I was working behind. The counter is part of my resume I know it's a career thing is he's he's important. Did he keep coming back or did he like ask you on a date while you were working at the counter? All right. So I worked in macy's and part time because I was going to school and his girlfriend who's really cute. Girlfriend had the same shifts that I did like. He they lived in Brooklyn together and he would come in. So she didn't have to take the subway by herself at nights. and. That's how we met. We I I never knew the story Oh my God. So he would he would come. He was so sweet I kept asking do you have a brother friend and he did hook me up with friend once that didn't work out but it wasn't until they broke up a couple of years. Later he got a number and called me so what I didn't break any relationship. Okay. That's a good story though. Okay. So keep keep going macy's macy's then got a job at Halston Orelon you guys probably don't know a Halston, the fashion design end ud line I worked there for a little while then the big job was working at Max factor and then we were acquired by Revlon and moved to La? The company Max factor acquired by PNG and moved to Hunt Valley Maryland Maryland Baltimore had a baby in Maryland that was the best part. Of Maryland then we moved back to la because Keith wasn't digging Maryland so much whatever, and then he became the state Dad didn't have a career anymore after that I ended up being the breadwinner starting the kid was born and then were worked neutrogena. And then San Francisco in here we are what is something that people can't Google about you that we should now. Aren't. So here's the thing to that I. Don't have a Wikipedia page. My team for years wanted me to build one, but I had this issue with being. Out there. So I don't know what's out there and I'm very uncomfortable with what's out there. So what would people not know about me? That I can play the harmonica and hula-hoop at the same time. Did you do that growing up? On hula-hoop for sure the Harmonica, I learned as an adult. So I have a hula-hoop now as an adult that I use regularly. So then I just combined two gifts that I have. You write about a quote kind of stuck out at me. The quotas get desperate I wanna dig into what that means because I think you know when in reading about your story like we've gotten to know you a little bit over the last year or so and I knew the high level part of your story. But in researching for this, it don't think I really could appreciate her understood how you really got your foot in the door and so I want to understand what get desperate meant for you. Yeah I think for me. I always had to work hard to get noticed it in everything I did and I think number one is my parents were divorced when I was nine and we were left with her mom not that there was a bad vanishes that she was the the strict one the tough one. So I was always like driven to please her with I think a lot of kids have that too. She was never quite one hundred percent. Happy. So I was always trying to please her. So I was always going above and beyond to get the grades and to get on the teams and that type of thing because I wasn't. We didn't have a ton of money growing up I had to be creative. So by the time I went to two years of college and I. My first two years. It was rough because it was my first time being outside of my mother's like grip. So kind of had a little bit too much fun when I realized that I had to. GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. My mother helped me figure out what my passion was. I UNI but couldn't get in to fit I couldn't get a job behind the beauty counter, which is what I need to do to get into the cosmetic program and I had to so learned that when I'm desperate when I can't seem to find my way is when I get most creative by when I'm at the bottom feeling down instead of being depressed for long periods of time I just started thinking what would I do in little steps to get there the story I have in The book is about Bloomingdale's I. wanted to work there really did but they would not give me the time of day because I had no experience on mcadoo, you have it if you don't get it the only solution to that was to just be in their face and I thought without being too annoying I'm GonNa go to the buying office. I'm going to go there every day every morning I know when they come in because the first time I went and it was a very narrow hallway. And I would smile and they would have to brush past. We had to literally touch audience for them to get by, and they just saw me every day and I think you don't persist Internet way just. So dedicated to your personal 'cause I had no choice for sleeping on couches I didn't have a place to live. They said. Why don't you come in? We'll find something

Corporations are taking a closer look at their impact on employees and customers when it comes to issues of diversity and inclusion one of the most visible examples, the stop hate for profit campaign, encouraging advertisers to boycott facebook amid calls for the social media giant to better moderate racist content. We've discussed this initiative at length here on squawk. SQUAWK pod check out Wednesday's episode for our most recent conversation with one of the campaign's organizers, but one of facebook's and Google's biggest advertisers has remained uninvolved in the boycott. That's proctor and gamble the consumer-goods Giant that owns household brands like Gillette. Bounty tied down vicks crest. The list goes on, but while fellow consumer giants like Pepsico Coca Cola and Unilever have pulled or paused their advertising. Advertising with facebook being Jay has not even though PNG has a history of calling out big tech platforms about this very issue in twenty nineteen, the company spoke out against digital media platforms. SUGGESTING PNG could move its aunt. Dollars to services do a better job at keeping their platforms free of offensive content, and they weren't kidding. In two thousand, seventeen and eighteen proctor and gamble had boycotted. Boycotted Youtube for over a year after its ads showed up next to terrorist content, so why his PSG remained on sidelines in this boycott, the company's strategy has instead been to double down on its own approach to combat racism with ads like the look and the talk about conversations. Black parents have with their children in this country. The talk actually won an emmy a few years ago. You were not pretty slow blood. Beautiful period. Okay. I'll never forget that. This week proctor and gamble released another short video choice encouraging white Americans to speak up and stand up against racial bias as well as the Hashtag. Let's talk about bias fostering conversation about race between strangers. Everyone has bias as might be uncomfortable. Can you imagine that officer having his knee on a white woman's neck like that for ten minutes it all starts with biased. Each video is a powerful watch. Damon Jones chief communications officer at proctor and gamble joined squawk box this morning to discuss the strategy. Here's Andrew, Ross Sorkin Damn Good morning to you. The morning before we get into some before we get into some of the details, just just tell us how this came about and I'm curious about what kind of debate there may or may not have been inside the company about how to approach this. Will for years we've been using our voice and position as a leading advertiser to spark these constructive conversation on race and unbiased. You know back in twenty fourteen. We launched a campaign called like a girl to talk about gender bias and twenty seven be launched a campaign all the talk that really shine the light on the conversations that black mothers were having with their children. Children to prepare them last year, bid on a campaign called the load, and recently with the choice we wanted to catalyze even more conversation, giving all that was happening in the world so we know that a lot of the core evil that we're facing right now. Racism sexism than up over. They all start with biased and we can't tackle these problems until we begin. Begin to talk about them, so the challenge is always. How do you do that in an accurate way? How do you do that in a way? That really brings people voices by invite them into really become part of solution. That's our objective with the talk about bias campaign. You know it's an important message, but we're. We're living in contentious time, and amid what some people. People might describe a cancel culture and I. Don't know if you remember when starbucks many years ago, put together their race together program, which immediately drew criticism despite I think it's well intentioned, and my question to you is how you think about that sort of a mix in terms of how you approach this issue, and what kind of feedback you've gotten us for. Sure well I think what we know because we're all about serving consumers, consumers want to know the values behind the brands they buy everyday and as we consider these types of programs, we do it in a fear and accurate in a respectful manner, and we're very clear on our goals, and we want a society that fosters great public discourse, even when we disagree, so we bring multiple views to the table, and we handle those using a very responsible way were clear on the objectives were clear on the outcomes, and we acknowledged that eight. Not everyone's a disagree, but we want everyone to come to the table, bringing their lived experience, but also bringing perspective that are beyond. Beyond their own, so what we did talk about bias. Perish Rangers together right. People who were different have different lived experiences, White, black gay shrink all these dimensions of diversity, and we said let's talk about these things right and sometimes disagree sometimes you'll get a little hurt, but that's the proper process of learning. We've actually taken that same process within the wall to P. and G. writes. The were walking the talk when it comes to bringing people together and getting through some of those difficult conversations at the end of the day. It's not about a popularity contest, but it's about getting to the culture of respect and understanding that we all want to live in.
"png" Discussed on Breaking Beauty Podcast
"Dr Noisier. Welcome back to our show. So here's the thing you guys at p. and G. Through all the research that you're always doing uncovered a little secret that most women are trying retinal and then quitting it before they actually see results so tell us about that. What is happening? And what kind of statistics are you seeing on this topic? Yes yes yes just to start off with. I think retinol as you mentioned. It's one of those ingredients that pretty much. Everyone has heard of right. There are some other ones in skincare. Where it's like you know you feel more expert. Retinal did a survey with about six thousand women in America and over eighty percents said yes I know of. I'm aware I've heard on edge via it's huge and then over forty percents. Half of the people have the women who had hard of it had actually tried it at some point again. So that's that's Numbers you wouldn't see for many other in wiggins but now comes the interesting part half of these women use their retinal products for less than amongst less than a month in that month. Eight out of ten did not use it every day and now comes the loss number. If you go back to everyone who who tried it at some point be to of ten? Women kept using the retinal product after several months. Shoe out of ten. Which meant Wayne's eight out of ten stopped using so to recap. What were the main reasons that people were quitting their retinol routines? It's really two main reasons that jumped out the first one is irritation redskin burning sensation. We've all right. I've definitely gone overboard and some prescription stuff definitely even has a name retinoids reaction so yes. It's very common. So that's the number one reason another reason is and it's almost the opposite is women that are irrational product. And they don't get anything they don't irritation but they also don't results and they will have spent quite a bit of money on that product and so they just give up because like I don't even know what that yeah I the thing is I you know. I know that retinol is the most serious ingredient on the web. I know it's the number one ingredient recommended by dermatologists. So how much retinal is actually out there? So so leading up to allay bringing out. Its Final Twenty. Four collection we. We did do a big search in the three years. Previous to our introduction many other retinal products globally have long and it was over three hours. Just those three years and that was a good year ago so arena. It's even more on top of all the products that already existed so it is crazy thousands and thousands of new products and coming out of. Wow that's incredible. No wonder women are confused. Indeed Dr Noise or I'm going to be honest with you when I attended the Ole presentational for all twenty four I was really shook by a slide that you guys put up there. I mean. I've been abused journalist for over fifteen years now and when I saw that side I just immediately. I had to go up and take a picture I was like. I don't even know if this is allowed. And it was basically a comparison of all the leading retinol products was drugstore. Luxury derm brands all those cute instagram brands. So can you sort of explain if you can what that was all about? Absolutely I know exactly which Chart Gimme actually wanted showed as showed how much wretched no we found in these formulations. How much was in that? That was able in some cases. What's on the pack? We found in there and quite a few cases we found a lot less than what it said on the label because it had degraded by the time right. That was one data point. How much is actually in there? At the point of you know using it often Archer said and then the second data points. Yes how much of that gets actually into your skin versus sitting on the surface and if my memory serves you had ten brands all lined up. I believe there was one that lived up to its claim that was very expensive and then there was like a second one that halfway lived up to its claiming the rest. Were just kind of like no right yes there. Were quite a few disappointments in their. The interesting point. Was that none of these about actually delivered more active retinal into the skin than the Holy Reginald Twenty Four K. considerably shocked. My pearls were being clutch every other beauty editor in the room. Let me tell you. Did you feel trip and by all of these like stealth mode after noisier? Like how did you get your hands on these? We did because we wanted to be realistic right so if you are do are you go to store. You know you buy your home you use. That's exactly what we did secret shopper. Now and I feel like that just really gets to the core of what this is all about and what this episode really is all about so a lot of the reason that women quit their retinal and their routines is because they're buying these things and they think it's going to be a holy grail. But they're really buying almost like a false promise products that are not being able to perform and meet the promise of. What's on the label so now a lot of people are looking at percentages. Because you think oh if it's got two percent retinol that must be better but is there like I just feel like that's faulty logic to so. How do you decipher what's good and not good? And that's part of the problem. Too Right it. Is You know what they are. Probably some ingredients were having the percentage on their lot more sense for example some of the essence right in do want to know what is the acid levels. Is it something? Us Daily weekly whatnot right. There's a very lineal relationship between how much is in there and our activity aggressiveness for Reginaldo. It's a little bit different. A small amount of rational goes a very
Meg Whitman, CEO of Quibi: Leadership in crisis is about getting down into the trenches.
"Question I wanNA start off with is weakened asked all of the time by people in our audience who are thinking about taking their next step in their career and they always ask us about how should they think about joining startup and ward. Should they consider when making that decision you joined Ebay what was relatively small at the time? Watergate things that you've thought of back then given what it later on became. Yeah well I was at Hasbro running the Preschool Division. Which was Barney Arthur teletubbies? My personal favorite Mr Potato Head and I got a call to go. There's no name. Startup called Ebay. We were barely on the Internet in Nineteen Ninety Eight. We're doing email so it was really you know completely new horizon. It's hard to imagine where we sit today and I have no to the haven't her? I said definitely not doing this. What do you call back later? That makes should really think about it. You're hooked for Ebay so I went out and met with hero media who was the founder twenty six years old time and at the end of the day. I went out there mostly because I didn't WanNa make the head hunter math and I got to San Francisco airport that night and I called my husband and I said we should do and some of the things that I would look for in. Consumer companies are is there a features and functionality benefits? If it'll allow you to do something you couldn't do before so like in my proctor and gamble days later why's cleaner fresher breath And do doesn't is there an emotional connection and if you have both of those a consumer product Bingo? Pm? Many are told me that people have met their best friends on Ebay and they were deeply connected to this website. And so I saw something that is very unique you know and then I always look for. Who's the founder or the CEO who is on board of directors? How well is the company funded? What is the consumer need that this new idea is delivering and it can be a B. Two B. Customer or the customer? But I always go to seamer going to think about this. You know in the end you jump into the abyss honestly and you have to ask yourself. What's the worst thing that lettuce like one of the craziest things that happened or something when you look back at those early days and Ebay they were like oh I did not think we are going to get through this well? I'll tell you one funny story in the recruiting process. And then I'll tell you the thing I worked wasn't sure we'd get through so when I went out to interview with Pierre and was super glad because I got to this office building and there was a receptionist and for some reason the fact that they had a receptionist to seem like it legitimized the country. Nothing I was very relieved my first day at work. I go in and where the the receptionist she used to sit. There was never sections. There was no desk. Don't make sure no receptionists. Go about my day and I sit down. I'M GONNA cube next year about. Halfway through the day I said appear what happened to the receptionist. They looked at me and he said Oh. We hired her for the day because we were pretty sure that we had a receptionist. He wouldn't think we were like big enough for legitimate enough to come work for and say well how right you were so the biggest thing that happened at Ebay that I wasn't sure we would recover from is on June tenth nineteen ninety nine. We had a twenty two hour outage for twenty two hours. You could not get to the website. Think about this. We had all these fires all these sellers. Nothing could happen. The CNN truck was parked outside of Ebay. Wanting hourly updates on the status report was it was the most frightening thing I've ever seen because we really did not know what had happened as it turned out. We have corrupted the entire back end database and took us twenty two hours to read about two hours before we brought the site backup. I looked at here and I said well. We can't bring this back up and he said don't worry right about now. Db database administrator will come running in here and they'll tell us what they found and that they're about to bring back up and I looked up here. Yeah okay. That's wishful thinking literally as if on cue about ten minutes later a DB Guinness Okay. Site is coming up. I mean obviously. That's hugely stressful. And an example. That's clearly marked in your memory. What are you like in a stressful situation? How do you react when stressed? Yeah I dive in really deep because I think leadership in crisis is about getting down into the trenches by actually slept at Ebay for over a month. Wait what yeah my system to get cops. You slept at Ebay for a month. Yes because I was sort of just have to be there like port of leadership. I was not a very deep technology executive at the time. I'm much deeper from a technology perspective today and so the only thing I could do was to be by being there lead by taking the temperature of the engineers leave by making sure all of our partners. Cisco OR VERA sign or Sun Microsystems. Were all on board to help us and so I figured that I really just couldn't leave. Because the thing was so unstable. We had a girl confrontations conference room and we use the bathrooms so when I'm fascinated by is obviously this was over twenty years ago. Workplaces look very different today. Era Trying to look different today. There's a huge movement around wellness and avoiding burnout in protecting employees from. Burn out when you look back at those days and the decision to sleep there. Would you make the same decision today? Absolutely one hundred percent because you know when there's and this was truly a crisis this was not just like sort of something that happened. This was really a crisis I mean the future of the company was at stake air and you know people have different leadership styles from my leadership style. It was absolutely the only thing to do. He considers no substitute for being there to say the truth is on the whole face. It's not at headquarters and the call was are not our network operation center and so to be there with the engineers talking to the vendors and partners just made all the difference. You know. We're interviewing you right now in a crazy time in our world where nobody is in the office now and leaders in you know us. Included are trying to figure out how to be strong. Ceo's how to be strong managers and how to show leadership them curious like you. Are you know in new leadership role at a new company However you being there. How are you showing that you're digging in? You can't physically be there. I feel like I live on zoom and we do too and I'm trying to drop into meeting. So my management style in the workplace is by walking around. I mean especially with a company of two hundred and fifty people like you know everybody above ground. See People go up to their desk. See what's happening so now. I'm dropping into meetings that I'm not actually necessarily invited to per se. Sometimes I just listened this Friday. We're doing it a company meeting on slack Which we have planned. I had breakfast with Nag which I did once a week. Which literally was breakfast with Mac? So we're still doing breakfast with meg only as coffee with MEG. And Its bring your own so we're just kind of keeping up some of those things I just got off the slack chat with women in the workplace at pretty and You know just spend half an hour answering questions from our women employees which by the way about fifty one percent of our companies. When you mentioned earlier that you become a much more technically proficient leader curly and I do not have a tech background. We certainly understand what it's like to check in with engineers and show up and show support without necessarily knowing the INS and outs of what they're talking about. How did you start to dive in to that skill set? I think for a lot of people. It can be intimidating but doing it. I mean honestly. There was no substitute for being there when the website went down. I mean just by sitting there listening to what they're talking about asking questions understanding what's happening understanding you know. Actually what a back. End Database actually does and what is corrupted what happens so it was really being there and asking questions. I think those of us who do not have a technology background you just have to ask questions and interestingly when I first started asking questions I thought they're just going to think I'm not smart. Or what the heck am I doing here if I if I add value from a tech perspective and in a funny way but I've found. Is that engineer? Plug to tell you about what they're doing and so. I just learnt by asking questions by doing it was completely on the job training for those ten years and then a different kind of tech at. Hp is that is that was big. Iron servers storage networking. Pretend trying new. Nothing about And so I just out below questions you obviously. Dramatically changed the trajectory ebay. Under your tenure. It became an enormous team generated. Billions of dollars in revenue. When you think back to what that did for you and we're going to dig into the next parts of your career. What do you think your core skill set is? What are you best at? People have sort of a core competency I think at my core I am a strategist and a market and probably on a strategist because my really my first job after Fangio was banned so I was trained in cost customers. Competitor Sustainable Competitive Advantage financial architecture. And so I think my core competency is probably strategy and I have a belief that if you had to rate strategy and less than perfect execution he'll be okay. If you have the wrong strategy and perfect execution you will not be okay and so I think that's probably my first company. See my second is from my training at PNG. Probably is marketing. Just been a marketer. You know almost sort of as a domain expert my whole life

Interview with John Nunemaker About His Developer Career
"So John. What is your developer origin story yeah yeah what the basically the way it started as. I always enjoyed math and stuff like that in high school going way back and when I went to college I just started. I kind of assumed like there was some computer stuff going on so this was two thousand and two thousand four and a lot of stuff was was happening opening that seemed exciting and at the Ogden programming so I took some programming classes the first one I think was visual basic and I did well in the the class didn't really feel like I learned anything and then I took another class next semester that was see and the teacher was in my my opinion back then then it was hard core so it was like we were on Lenox. We learn how to compile. We were doing you know see and even some Pearl. I think also and I remember you're right out of the gate struggling big time I basically had not I basically learned how to program in the first class and so I I spent every office hours for the entire semester and pull my Grad from like an F. Which I had never had my entire life about three weeks into I think I ended up with like a b. Minus so ended up kind of getting the hang of it and and progressing then my senior year it would have been the end of my junior year. They had this major class where you could take one class for entire month and I was all you did so it was like really intensive three or four hours a day and I took a web job in like Photoshop class and absolutely love because it took the stuff that was cool programming. I enjoyed making Gregorian calendars and things like that but it being able to put it on the Internet and then instantly like have my mom was kind of next level and so I think that's from then on basically I've been hooked on the web so the next semester I took independent study in PHP and my sequel build a little bed and breakfast website and and then kind of fell into my first job and then fell into my second job small consultancies and stuff like that just cranking out websites and then I think from there ended up at Notre Dame and got to University of Notre Dame got to learn a lot of really good things in work around great team and Matt eventually who become kind of my co-founder at ordered list Steve Smith and and with the two of us hit it off. He was Kinda Front End. I was kind of back end and we both enjoyed our our parts and so I ended up leaving Notre Dame and joining him and then the rest of it you kind of mentioned where we went to build some stuff and eventually ended up at at hub so I think that's kind of where it started from me so it's basically like two thousand three two thousand four kind of got into some web stuff absolutely loved it and did nothing. I mean my entire twenty s were like way too much time with my sequel and that eventually into like ruby on rails and stuff like that was ordered list building ruby and ruby on rails yeah so we when and he went Steve and I were still at Notre Dame we built the content management system that we call conductor because conductor had an NDA and it was conducting inducting websites. We were very smart all the names we probably took all all the vowels out because that was when you know flicker and all those didn't have have bowel so that was probably it probably didn't have vowels either but basically we were like. We're going to build this in rails. It's going to be awesome and like I remember Notre. Dame was very against at the time against new technologies and so we kind of just did it. We paid for out of our departments funds instead of using like a general. It stuff like that and it was on rails and then when I joined ordered last I mean we were consultants basically but or list inc but what we did right away we knew long-term we wanted to be in products and so we started started harmony which was basically like we rebuilt conductor from the ground up as a way to make it faster for us to ship websites for clients basically and so that's kind of yeah so it was all all ruby on rails stuff so awesome will the next question I have for you is really kind of a two parter so first of all. I'd love to hear about box South Sports. What is that yeah so box out sports I just joined in January and what that is is it's basically we hope mostly college sports and now kind of delving into high school as well with their social media presence and so basically any kind of info graphic or game game update half and of Quarter player the game interesting stats quotes all the stuff that if you are on instagram lot you'll see it all over. ESPN bleacher report those kinds of things infographics huge on facebook and instagram sell the company started maybe five years ago and and it's again with Steve Smith and then with two other guys Raby lightfoot and Jeff Myers. Neither of them are programmers but the four of us are all in now and basically they. They started it. Maybe three or four years ago and I just joined and it's going really well. a lot of good saturation in College a lot of college sports use us for just updating on. Here's here's how all the Games are going for all their teams James Volleyball Men's and women's football soccer basketball baseball softball everything that you can kind of imagine we have different graphic packages packages for as really similar. I was talked to Steve. About how similar it is to harmony harmony was basically this like template and data's system where a developer would like like create this template and then that from that template we derive like a pretty form to show a contact person so they didn't have to worry about html and CSS and where things will go and just made it really easy for them to put it in and this infographics thing the exact same thing. It's basically like this template system where a developer primarily Japhet box out will create these templates and they have what what's what are the data inputs that we need and then when a sports information director her or someone who's athletics or a student worker whose at a game is doing an update they don't have to think about like what's our branding look like does this is this designed find well or any of that kind of stuff they have these stock templates they just fill in the data and then they get beautiful graphics to share just a a really simple way to like you know defined templates and end up with with Japex and PNG's and actually uses electron on the back end for some of the rendering and stuff like that which is kind of cool too.

Bw Daily to five hundred five hundred from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business wars daily on the beginning of another workweek happy Monday everyone. If you watched last night's game between between the Eagles and the Falcons well you may have noticed some tongue in cheek ads for tide laundry soap those new ads featuring retired quarterback peyton manning singer Gwen Stefani Bonnie and Baltimore Ravens running back. Mark Ingram are trying to rebrand the NFL from national football league to not for laundry. There are also attempting to persuade viewers to do their laundry on some other night any other night except Sunday. Take a listen peyton manning at a fake press conference with a frantic TV viewer cutting in it happens every Sunday. Your favorite player makes an amazing play and you miss it because you're doing laundry what I miss. I was doing laundry. Don't worry because the NFL has teamed up with tied Tuesday the official laundry night awesome that's right. Sundays are now one hundred percent. NFL Not for laundry but not so fast the ad campaign. Let's assume on the complexities brands actually experience working not just with the National Football Football League but also with the network that airs Sunday night football. NBC in a subsequent spot the voice host Gwen Stefani has a lot to say about the audacity the of the NFL to Saddle Tuesdays with laundry in this ad a young contestant worries that her chances will be hurt by viewers forsaking the show for the household asshole for the season of the voice. Young artists will get the chance of a lifetime to an American wait a minute. We did the NFL. Just try to declare Tuesday night laundry night the voices on Tuesday. I mean Sundays are for laundry. Everyone knows that that's when I do it yeah. She look spotless. It's kind of a big moment for me. Anyone sees it more spots from more stars all trying to push laundry every night around of course no matter when it lands tied wants you to choose its brand which by the way much of America is already doing the market research firms to Teesta says tide overwhelmingly won the laundry wars in two thousand eighteen selling close to two billion dollars worth of soap gain was number two but it's hardly a competition consumer packaged goods giant procter and gamble owns both brands. A distant third is arm and hammer brand owned by a company. You may never have heard of church each and white that conglomerate which now also owns aim toothpaste and Trojan condoms among other things is almost one hundred and seventy five years old. Both proctor and gamble and church and white have grown during the good economy albeit with vastly different strategies. PNG is the world's second largest advertiser according according to industry publication adage. It costs a lot to run all of those ads so it should come as no surprise. The tide is among the most expensive laundry detergents since on the market in contrast arm and hammer has long been seen as a so called value brand that is it's cheaper this summer nervous investors this question proctor and gamble about how it would handle a recession at age reported. PNG struggled mightily during the last one because of its long strategy of pushing premium products not augustine laundry soap either but once bitten twice shy when it comes to those bubbles. PNG is already planning for the worst six years ago. The struggling company introduced used a lower priced version of tied trying to appeal to penny pinching shoppers at the same time though arm and hammer began advertising premium product oxy clean and as with all things in the consumer packaged goods space it relied on a barrage of ads to compete a few years ago oxy clean became the second biggest laundry laundry spender on advertising after tied the upshot well with shaky economic times possibly on the way tide is not resting on its super clean laurels instead instead. It's pulling out all the stops and turning to bankable stars like Winston funny and Peyton manning now there are two big questions one will tied blow throughout the season with a huge not for laundry super bowl ad and to statistically more Americans wash clothes on Sunday nights than any other so now.

She loves going anywhere really. It's always an adventure for very well. Not only it's been almost a fortnight since we lost that day. I ended up crying in a small examination room really crying ugly glee crying while the vet passed toilet paper to blow my nose been eating late everything yet so he has become a constant companion for me since I moved to PNG almost a year ago.

The evenings Lang Hang in the house and then the nights outside on God's easy if she's not with me she's following Majola around on the fourth correspondent London to pass through one two threes Ryan. She's an old dog. We think maybe nine or ten I knew I was arriving in her twilight es and I thought when I was prepared for that until the bit found chewing good out. We're back in that little examination room in the important speed so he's lying on the ground today. Having the stables removed from a long scar that now runs up it would be small Swedish after identifying the tumor in an x Ray. There was is no way to the vets to know if there were more tumors until they operate it before they started the surgery. Dr Claratyne warned me that in the worst case scenario Korea we may have to put her down sometimes with sputnik tomb as we get in Net and there's a lot of small tumors spread through the immense amount onto the other organs and and when we get in there and that's the case often I will stop bleeding from all of the hundreds of and they're the ones that we often need to sleep on the title.

Yes and I always this is. GonNa sound a little bit terrible but when I'm doing a big procedure like this with someone who's very abundant to animals if I see that emotional response it helps me know that they understand the risk that mom is going on with the with the animal and so that can help you feel confident that you've communicated well to the clients that they understand what's going on with the animal but even a medical professional. I get a missed with my animals so we completely understand this. You know I think has sometimes society can be not so great supporting people through the animals sicknesses you get sick.

Sprinklr - The Social Technology Serving 1000+ Global Brands
"To talk about how the world's biggest global brands such as Nike McDonalds, Microsoft, PNG Samsung and more than fifty percent of the fortune fifty and nine out of ten of the world's most valuable brands or working with a company called sprinkler wit is the first unified customer experience management platform for the enterprise, and they helped the world's largest brands reach engage and listen to their customers on Facebook Twitter and over twenty three other social channels all for the purpose of marketing advertising, research and cat and Straker does all of that on one unified platform which integrate with legacy systems and allow solo teams. To collaborate and deliver seamless experience to every single one of their customers across any channel and scale because I was incredibly impressed with what I learned and for me sprinkler stood out of the two hundred plus boats here at the adobe summit and sprinklers seem to be one of the few out there that have no competition so book lope and hold on tight. So I can be meal is all the way to Vegas. So we can speak with sprinklers XM oh, grad cone. It will our promise you will be very enlightening and amusing conversation too. Massive all welcome to the show. Can you tell the listeners about who you are? And what you do, sir. I'm grad gone chief experience in marketing officer for sprinkler. And when I'm responsible for is all the traditional marketing motions, in our way, we measure that is pipeline. And but I'm also in charge of experience and how to our customers experienced product. How do they on the products and have they use the products to help their customers fall in love with them that will show many buzzwords here at the summit? It also was surrounded by them. I wanna quest to learn more about how these techies working in the real world outside of conference halls and keynote speeches so tell me a little bit more about how sprinkle is helping large brands such as Disney Loria McDonald's, Michael Kors, Nike PNG's. I'm tender. I could go on and on. But how do you help them manage their social media leaning words, buzzwords and marketing? I'm I'm confused. I don't know what you talking about. Yeah. You know, I think I used to work in healthcare in every industry actually has buzzwords and particularly acronyms in part of the reason for that. Is that the it's the way industry creates language that creates exclusionary access? So that they simply the way I judge you is they'll save you. Hey, what are you using to generate MQL's if you say to me muttering pupils, Mike? Oh, hello. And goodbye. And and it's very very interesting every industry, Scott that marketing is particularly adept at creating them because they're very creative people. So they're really good at creative. And I think that where we get lost a lot of the time is that at the end of the day, if a customer doesn't take charge card or cash out of their wallet and give it to you. Then there's no company. I mean, it's not that conflict. And it is funny. How people get all sort of like confused on what is the role of the customer, and should they be customer Centric and CSM is this new acronym? That's not come out customer experience management. But at the end of the day, someone has to decide to give you money the thing that you're selling in. So how do you do that? And I think they're really simple way is that you want them to feel that by giving you money. They'll be they'll be happier. You can't promise happiness. That's a that's a quest. It's never ending. You kids out there. Trust me. Don't try chase happiness. But happier is doable. You can't be happier in. So how do you create happier customers? And then that's a core issue. Now. Let's assume that it's eighteen fifty right now you and I are running a shop. Okay. Would we be flipping around whereas like CSM MQL's talking about marketing automation? No. But we would be thinking about how do we make our customers happy? We would be worried about. And so you would think about how do we greet them when they walk in the door. How do we get to know them? Really? Well, that was always the big secret the shopkeepers hat is that over time. They would know their customers and that customer and walk in the store I known sack while you were there, and you what you want a new when she bought last week and know what you're thinking of buying 'cause we were talking about it. We have a conversation together. This idea of really getting to know somebody. That's something that we've lost a lot of companies. And then once I know you then I'm like, okay. How do I tell you that? I got something that meets those needs and making happier. And then how do I communicate that to you? Then how do I give that to you? So you give me money. That's that's how we would run a shop. Right. And I think for a large company today, they they they need to have a shop keepers Mentana. Which in the first step of that? Is you need to understand which your customers are talking about the thing about you. But you're seeing about their lives what they're saying about products in your area like Cleese. No all that. Now until very recently. It was hard to know those things that scale in. So quite frankly, we sorta gave up as an industry. So you think what the history of the twentieth century? It's it's broadcast century or basically stood on soapbox does yelled at our customers. Ryan will just repeat the same thing over and over again until they get and they don't well. Then let us keep telling them over and over again, it it was too horrible time. When you think about it? But now, we actually have the ability to listen to what people are saying about the things they need and their likes and desires and dislikes and then act on that. And solve those things in create a happier person. Resolve it's a it's we live in a very amazing time. I think if you could just boil it down to half your customers and boil it down to knowing and then. Being able to engage in respond to it, isn't that complicated. This real vibe around privacy trust and transparency here at the adobe summit this year. So can you tell me a little bit more about how sprinkler helps lodge brands manage that customer social data in a secure way? An also, of course, how you're helping brands reduced risk in their own social media management practices. Right. So privacy is a always been a first party citizen at sprinkler. So sprinkler was born ten years ago. It's a ten year old company now, and there was one simple idea in the founding of it that's been pretty critical to our success, which is that we only work with large enterprise grants. And so what that meant is that we had to create a tool that would integrate into very complex IT environments with very large multinational organizations we operate in one hundred fifty countries today and twenty seven different languages. You know, we've got. Got offices in fifteen countries fourteen hundred employees now, so we've been able to serve as these large multinational clients by making sure that privacy security and governance were always first party citizens.

PNG's polio problem
"At the closest point four kilometres separate Papa NEW GUINEA from Australia. But there is a far big Gulf between the two countries health systems nearest neighbor has some of the worst health outcomes in the world, his PNG correspondent Natalie whiting for almost twenty years. The Pacific region has been polio-free for my generation in Estrella. Polio is a disease of a foregone era and not one odd given much thought to then just before I took up my posting in Papua New Guinea the country. Had polio. Outbreak in a developing country reporting on healthy shoes is common. But I knew then that health was going to be a particular focus when I arrived in PNG. It was already a focus for the local journalists since I've arrived is being a constant stream of stories in the local news about medication shortages in the country's health clinics doctors and nurses being left without the basic drugs. They need to do their jobs, and that's just one issue. I've just taken my first trip outside Port Moresby. It was to the city of lay and it was to cover up to health stories. The first was the polio outbreak. I saw the effects the diseases had on one young boy, not just physically, but socially. There's a stigma associated with the disease that he now faces in his village and most likely school when he starts his mother blames herself for him becoming seek a big drop in vaccination rates in the country is what led to the outbreak an incredible effort. He's now underway to vaccinate all. The country's children. I can only hope the emphasis on vaccinations remains when the outbreak ends. The other story. I went to caveat was cancer treatment in pop when you Guinea or a lack thereof the two years, the country's only radiotherapy machine has set odd because legislation is needed to allow new radioactive sources to be brought in in order to power it last year alone. Both in one hundred patients were sent home to die. When I first started planning the trip to lay it was to visit a woman named Margaret. She had a facial Schumer and was considering selling the family home to go overseas to get treatment. By the time we called to confirm the visit Margaret had died. Her husband agreed to still be interviewed to tell his story in the week before flying out to lie. Tried to visit a young man who was in hospital in Port Moresby. He also had cancer and was also desperately trying to fundraise to go overseas for treatment. The Port Moresby General Hospital wouldn't let my producer in Maine to see him but standing outside. He's told me about plans to hold a big dinner at their village to raise money for him in lay the N gal hospital. Let me visit. It's National Cancer clinic. Walking into that. Ward was tough. I had to fight back. A sudden overwhelming urge to burst into tease I've never cried while working before despite a long array of painful stories, I've covered, but there is something about the complete and utter helplessness in this ward. That hits me this isn't a cancer clinic. It's appellative care unit and that is abundantly clear. I hold it together. After all everyone else sees the doctors, and the nurses who come here every day to treat these patients as best they can the families who sit by the bedsides, climbing their loved ones hair or chatting to them in hushed tones, the patients some of whom still manage to smile at me. What do I have to cry? Everyone. He has a job to do. Mine is to report on the situation. At that moment. All I can do is hope that the country's politicians do their job and pass the legislation required to get the radiation machine. Back up and running the day after getting back from les. I find out that the young man import MOS b General Hospital has died. There will be no need for the big fundraising dinner at he's village. Two days after getting back local television station. Mtv runs a story about the lack of radiation sieve and the treatment in money, LA, according to routes further brass t-, COPA they head to return to the country because the treatment overseas routes very expensive. Another young person has died. This time a twenty one year old woman Papua New Guinea parliament returned the week after and on the first day, the health minister fielded questions about the country's hopes it. There's two why they snow medicines in health centers in hospitals. So my question to the minister is that I need medication is getting to where it's needed and that the health system is improving that's despite last year's budget, cutting health spending but two percent in real terms. It's not a crisis fished in that. I want to assure people. I've got I brought with me day back. The parliament passed the legislation needed to allow radioactive sources to be brought into the country which should allow radiotherapy to race start this week. The manager of Papua New Guinea National Cancer center has spoken about trying to get those new nuclear regulations implemented. Now that the legislation is passed. So the work isn't finished yet. But he's very hopeful and says they're already arranging for the nucleus sources to be brought in there's still a long line of other health issues. Plaguing this country like Tabacchi Laos's, drug resistant, HIV and malnutrition and stunting in children to me they stories for another day for many Papua New Guinea ins there a daily reality. Wanting reporting from Papua New Guinea.
Spending Christmas in Port Moresby
"This Christmas, many of the ABC's foreign correspondents will be spending the day far from Austria and their families. One of those is how Papua New Guinea correspondent Natalie wanting, but that's already finding a lot to love about Christmas in PNG. That's virgins. Like slums? It's that time of year, but not all workplaces will be shutting up for the fifth stoop season newsroom. Sow one of those places that operate every day of the so on Christmas day, they will be reporters hitting into work. They'll be little celebrations in offices and colorful paper cracker hats being worn behind radio. Microphones no matter where I've moved with the by luck of roistering or a quick of programming. I've always manage to spend Christmas with family having only moved to Papua New Guinea a little over two months ago. It seemed silly to be hitting back to a stray Leah already. So I'm preparing for my first PNG Christmas, the Christmas lights and decorations went up early in Port Moresby and there were big Christmas. Displays in a couple of the local pox. I woke last Saturday morning to discover some genuine festive Chee not far from my house. I followed the sound of some upbeat music down the hill. I live on to find a local footy oval filled with children among the thousands of kids and their parents. There was a group of people in Santa hats handing out gifts. That's where I found at least a Craig Malini from the children's Christmas feast, it's basically a way for the business has to get back to the community and for us to bring a bit Christmas joy and chin to underprivileged and less fortunate children at Christmas. Butts in pissing happening behind us, which is getting a great reception from the crowd. Yes. Every year. We have dance competitions for the kids. We have lion performance. We had us is we have robots. So we really try to put on a bit of a lunch for the kids. And then put on a bit of a show on have a big Christmas day for everyone on once again. Port Moresby has also provided one of my favorite Christmas events carols. Thousands of people gathered down by local beach to see all the classics performed on a big stage of ventured out with my partner Joel and the dog a German shepherd who works security for the national board caster. Unfortunately, we didn't end up seeing much of the carols. You see before the event abortion headband for myself that had to glittery reindeer suspended on top of it. I also bought one that had to Christmas trees on it for three who happily wars all night. From the reaction we go. I think it's safe to say the phenomena of dressing animals in clothing had yet to reach Papua New Guinea, people would genuinely surprised to see it. But it turns out funding joy and Huma in a dog in and out. This is universal. There was a constant stream of people laughing stopping to say merry Christmas and wanting to get photos. We've three sudden celebrity status we didn't say much if the performance, but we met a lot of new people. And I think spread a lot of. Will be more speech the Christmas on hurting. I want you working on the day as long as there are no major news events a plan to be celebrating with some new friends in my new country, and I'll be thinking of all the reporters who actually working along with the doctors, nurses, police paramedics and everyone else who will spend the day doing Mitchell merry Christmas. Watching reporting from Port Moresby.
