NASA Confirms Mars Region Had Thousands of Ancient Volcanic Eruptions
"New evidence shows massive ancient volcanoes erupted on Mars The so called super eruptions occurred in a region of northern Mars called Arabia Terra over a period of 500 million years dating back approximately four billion years. The news was published in a paper in the journal Geophysical Research Letters this summer and said researchers who studied the topography of mineral composition of the region made the discovery.

Patrick Wheelie, a geologist at Nasa's Goddard Space Flight Center, led the Arabia Terra Analysis said to release that it's possible release gas made the atmosphere thicker or block the sun and made the atmospheric holder modelers of bars say they still have work to do to try to fully understand the impact of the volcanoes.

Bike Fitting 101 with Coach Patrick Carey
"Let's just dive right in how to even define a good bike fit. I think that's a great place to start. Might take that every good bikes. It starts with the bike fitting the rider not the other way around and unfortunately oftentimes what happens is people are shoehorned onto their bikes. And that's really the office of what we want to happen. We want to set every bike up for each rider so that the rider just naturally falls into position on the bike. There's no pain points. You're not running into impingement and you're also not contracting yourself. In any way you're not overreaching. You're not spending your wrist some awkward way and and in that same idea if something hurts when you ride your bike. It's not right. Don't ever let someone tell you all that's just how riding a bike is. It's supposed to be a little uncomfortable. Now it's supposed to be joyful and supposed to be wonderful and when you get your bike set up correctly for you. it can be. That was is very much aligned. With what would. I often talk about it. We're not creating a bicycle. Recreating a cyborg and the interface between the animal and the machine is how you achieve that. Let's dive in even further so different approaches to fit. Probably what most people have been used to throw a leg over at approach literally. Stand over the bike. If you can clear the top tube. That's probably a good place. And then when you throw the word sit in there. Usually what ends up happening. Is you all the saddle height. The stem may be gets flipped. It probably does not get changed. And then also a lot of that is relying on the charts. So by companies. Put out the charts. Says if you're five seven you should be on. This is mike. If you're five ten you should be on the size bike. I personally believe that very often unfortunately results in people being on the wrong sized bike typically bike. That's too big which means that they're overreaching on that bike and you end up chasing the front end of the bike so the front end it becomes somewhat fixed in space and you can always shorten the stem so much so then that rider ends up being shoved way way forward on the bike and yeah like cement to create enjoyment. This takes away from
Interview With Patrick Bangert of Samsung SDS
"So patrick i'm glad to be able to have you with us on the program here today and we're gonna be talking. Ai at the edge particularly in the world of medical devices. Which is i know where a lot of your focus is here. We're gonna get into some of the unique challenges of leveraging data and ai at the edge in the medical space. But i want to talk first. About what kinds of products. We're talking about people think medical devices. Okay well medtronic is tracking my blood sugar on the side of my arm and you know. Then i've got a big cat scan machine kicking around over here. What kind of devices does your work involve with. And and his edge relevant From your experience. Thank you for having me on the show pleasure to be here. We are dealing with medical imaging devices. So if you have a smart watch on your wrist. That's not what we deal with. Even though those are very useful of course to measure your exercise and sleep patterns we're dealing with technologies like an ultrasound and mri is not an x ray. And what's called digital pathology which is where a biopsy is removed and put on a microscopic slide. Those kinds of technologies produce images that are relevant to telling you whether you're sick at all hopefully not or if you are what kind of disease it is. And so the job of computer vision in this case is to detect whether is a disease diagnose what it is to find out where it is to find out how big it is advanced in if cancer stage one. Three how advanced it is. And all of these outputs can of course be created. Virtually instantaneously by executing artificial intelligence models at the edge and the edge in this case is the device itself. Yeah okay so. Some devices are huge. Mri scanners take up a whole room. As some devices are quite small ultrasound. Machines view could transport it in your suitcase and so there's obviously also price difference here but nonetheless. All of these technologies do produce an image that that is then analyzed by
Mosaic Megachurch Pastor Erwin McManus on the Genius of Jesus
"A lot of times genius is not expressed in physics mathematics is expressed in so many different arenas of life but you have to have a domain where that genius is expressed. And i think that's where the genius jesus lost because there isn't an expected domain. This is hang. Hang on just want to say. That's a really cool idea. That's another idea. I've never thought of that. That's a big idea what you just said that. He didn't have you know he didn't write sonnets. He didn't right I it so yeah. So he just lived his life and share things that other people grabbed and wrote down so keep going. But that's a fascinating concept. This is why the genes of jesus is so easily missed because his domain was the human spirit that his work of art was the way his teachings his ideas his influence transformed what it looked like to be human. And so when you have a genius that affects the domain of humanity. It can be so easily overlook oxygen in the room. You don't think about the air in the room except when there is no oxygen add. The domain of jesus is the transformation of the human spirit. Now eric during unicorn during covert everybody has like their crazy moments and i wrote this book during quarantine. I was in my back house and having a conversation with myself which. I do all the time which is why. I'm rarely lonely. And but you know how sometimes you have those conflicting voices and you're not sure. Which one is you. But you're having an argument with yourself. And and i had the stock. How odd that. My entire life is centers around this person. Who two thousand years ago now. I know i'm not supposed to be having that question because i'm the founder of mosaic patrick's church. I'm a follower of jesus. But i always have these these questions and and i thought to myself how odd that my whole life is centered around this person named jesus said one thing i can't deny is that my life has been changed by jesus but objectively. I could argue that. Jesus doesn't exist. I could argue that. Jesus isn't god. But i can't actually argue that. My life hasn't been changed by this dynamic. That i've identified as jesus so i had this thought either at been changed by the reality of jesus being god himself or have been changed by the idea of
Why the Browns Should Feel Good After Losing to Chiefs
"Joe thanks for joining us. If you're a browns fan. How do you feel today. I think you feel great. And they should feel great because going into the season everybody wanted to tell them but how great they were and you always worry about your toll in that first game. I know they didn't win but they beat kansas city in that game. If you watch it from start to finish and it's just a matter for them now just learning how to finish down the stretch. This is a team that turned the entire organization and franchise around when kevin's too fancy. Got there the mentality has completely changed. The culture has changed now. Just learning how to win down the stretch but having the chiefs who two years ago they won the super bowl last year there in the super bowl a lot of people thought that they probably could have won that super bowl and going into their place in week one and really playing him. I don't think that that is anybody's something that anybody should be ashamed of if you're a browns fan

It's happening tuesday september fourteenth. All right so it's less than a week away. And i know some copies in the midst of this pandemic have been experimenting with different kinds of presentations than i know. Google had a hybrid one with some folks there. This one is this. Are we expecting some a virtual only pre canned type fair. Or you think the be any kind of wrinkles. Toss at us here. That's a great question because to be honest we don't know really but we do so last fall. Apples event was virtual only and predominantly over the past year. There's been one one exception where their events have been all virtual that means everything's either prerecorded or or filmed and edited and they're basically playing video as they announced these products. And the was the google. I o event where they had some of their developers in employees. That was like a a live broadcast but it wasn't kind of like our typical event. And actually i went to a motorola event for a much smaller muss well-known phone call the motorola edge and that was the first in-person press event for a piece of hardware. I believe in the world since the pandemic started. So it's interesting. I think a lot of its are hoping that this event might be in person. I think there's a thousand reasons. Why part of the biggest reasons cove it. And when we received word about the event we received a invitation and on the invitation said california streaming which could be a reprint of the fact that this is a virtual event that will be streaming.

Raising Rivers as a Bluff
"Theme is Bluffing rivers raising rivers as a bluff. Like we've done a bunch of episodes those but those most exciting hands generally so that's why we do so. This had opened with me. Cut off with ace. Ten of spades. this is we are four handed playing five head. No limit cash I open the slogan foale. Three butts and the big blindfolds gonna be flagging a senator spades alday versus three but from blinds from the cutoff. So i call. Yeah this three sizing tell me about the sizing. It's like a little looks a little weird. But i don't really open to your size so this is like pretty close to this is that they should be through bettering to versus the two point. Two five i think like i don't know if you want to scale it like exactly. It would be like close to one hundred dollars but this is just i dunno. It's half the half a big wide less than that. So i think this is is is really. Yeah i would just go like one hundred ish but i mean whatever. They're they're dialing it back like point two five big blinds for this. I feel like they're using like some. Scroll like there's just lazily just kind of like scrolling and like okay ninety seven fifty. That's close maybe. I don't know. I i don't know if that's the case or not because i mean seems like there'd be more precise than that at there's some people like there's some people who three that and i can tell. Just click like they just click. The pop feel like three position that that number is exactly. What like see ladies and gentlemen if you've listened to deep patrick leonard episode of why he thought he could make a run at high stakes poker. That whole story. I suggest you listen to the podcasts. And because that's just a hilarious story. And this is kind of alludes to that that i guess we should never underestimate the laziness of poker players and even the highest of stakes maybe even especially the highest stakes poker players. Why did you say that. Why especially just. Because like i think the i i just think that the highest of stakes poker players can get a little lazy. They can't get lackadaisical they can you know get less hungary. They can just be playing to make money every single month. Then just get kind of distracted not zone and whatever i mean like you said to be fair ninety seven fifty one hundred one. Those are all perfectly fine through bet sizes. So they are they are so we get this gorgeous flop of five of hearts in eight of clubs and a nine of spades and fabulous check-check. Let's start there to check on the flop your check back but do you think about banning the flop stabbing the flop checking back stabbing the stabbing these like low and middling flops With range if you wanted to facing check is probably fine I think with a hand. That's worse than as hype certainly Be way more inclined to stop. But when i block villain from having like eisai. Hans himself I think that i am going to be ahead of white. A large portion of villains Range at that. I if i stop the swap with this sort of hand i'm really just getting mostly worshipful I'm a little skeptical though like. I'm i'm skeptical. That you're gonna always realize what year even a high percentage of the time realize equity on a variety of different run out like you are being king queen but like you know. Are you always going to realize equity and just call down on blank run outs. Well i mean if you wanna see what i could prove it to the fans. If you're on a you prove something. I don't know don't know that you prove you're gonna call down but we prove very talks about the theme of the episode so yeah and then also like especially with this eight ten of spades with like eight and nine with a spade on board. It's like it's way more painful to get check raised off of this. I think when you have like a ton of diamonds for example like there's equity more equity tibi realized on this particular board with stem space. So i if. I bet the swap and get check raised. I'd be way sadder than if i had said of. Diamonds are like king queen. Whatever and got chuck

Barack obama said no taking the pigeon because she had a dream. She wanted to know what it felt like. This is my way of not just saying the words but showing her. This is what permission to dream. Feels like and you know the crazy thing man. We wrap it up. We get ready to leave. And the president of the united states says to my granddaughter. Will you know what if you do real good in school and you do everything. You'll pompous in about thirty years. This could be yours right there right there. She said to him no is twenty eight and a half man. I created a monster. But you know what again. That's what gives me such tremendous for the future man and let me say one more thing. Patrick if i cannot take a lot of time but this to your point about some of us who are little bit older down the road a lot of that and who might feel like oh man i can't it will never happen. I'm too old. Yeah well you know what always talked to folks about a gun in break crop then. They might not ring a bill but he started a little company called mcdonald's he started dead at fifty six years of age. Another guy named john pembleton name may not ring a bill. But i bet you consumed this product. He created something called coca cola what he was fifty eight harland sanders also known as the colonel didn't sell this first piece of chicken till he was sixty two. So how old is too old. Okay let's take that off the table a right. This has been done before sir but now it's our turn you and the book with this chapter that i really love because anybody can follow this vice and begin to do exactly what you're telling us to do you say this is the epilogue. It's brush your teeth and change your life in two days to end the interview. I love for you to give us that methodology of how we can in two days brushing our teeth which is good. You gotta brush your teeth. We can change our lives.

I'm assuming you saw the pursuit of happiness enrique. Here's guy driving this red ferrari and i go up to ask two questions what you do in. How do you do that with as a new two questions while you're looking at that person mira while you're brushing your teeth. Ask yourself if. I could walk through a door tomorrow morning and be doing anything in the world. What would it looked like would feel like what would it smell like. What would it tastes like. Engage all your senses and then ask yourself the second question. What did i do today to make tomorrow habit. Did i move the dial one notch. Did i take one baby step towards what it is. I say i really wanted to do in. The answer is own you. Did i move the notch again to think about that. Just one notch. Did i take one baby step if the answer is no. That's not really what you wanna do. You what i thought about this chapter because i love this and this is. It's like you can do this. Everybody can do this. I used to live in brazil people in brazil. Brush your teeth like eight times a day. So if you're a brazilian you're gonna have a lot of progress in your life because if you do this every time you brush your teeth.

"Can have. It doesn't matter how great a seed you have if you haven't cultivated the ground before you plant it. It's not going to yield fullest fruit. So what these people did was to arrange for p. for their the recipients of their message to be aligned with their message before the experienced it and the way they did that was to create mindsets in their audiences. There were there were consistent with the message they were about to hear. Give you an example Do you are you a wine drinker. Better gas sure definitely if you were to go into a wine shop research shows that if if there was a german song playing on the pa system you'd be more likely to buy the german vintage. He if there was a french song playing. You'd be more likely to buy french wine. So what's what has occupied your consciousness before that decision will steer you in the direction of what's top of mind. Those prese waders knew how to do that. Okay we know it's going to take many forms of energy to meet the world's needs while creating cleaner future for all at chevron were lowering the carbon emissions intensity of our operations investing in lower carbon technologies and exploring renewable fuels of the future. We work hard to care for the homes. We love only human. The protect the one we share learn. More at chevron dot com. Let's stay in europe. We're going to head east to issue. Italy where we get a question for for none the meal and she says do we still see social proof in the number of followers. Somebody hasn't social media or is that kind of social proof losing its power will. It's losing its power. Because people are Are counterfeiting those those followers and so now that that particular technique of representing social proof is no longer as reliable as it used to be. People are figure out ways to get followers that don't really love the love the message or the program but you know there are various ways to build your following like this That are essentially a not not truly a powerful so that doesn't mean social proof doesn't work it just means that particular version of it doesn't work but there are all kinds of others. I i saw some some studies showing that there's one phrase you could use If you were a clerk. At mcdonald's that in greece the likelihood that people would buy a mcflurry dessert after their meal by fifty six percent. And here's what it is. The mcflurry is our most popular dessert. and mcflurry purchases jumped by fifty six percent. It's still social proof right so you can change the ways you get there depending on the situation and you will see the effect but sometimes because people will undermine the reliability of some of the ways of getting to a true picture of social proof you might Start dropping dropping away Your use of them for example as star ratings on review sites. Do you know there's a very interesting. Finding the there's a particular range of stars star ratings that is most likely to produce a a purchase and five stars is included in the range. It's from four point two to four point seven if you don't if you don't have some non fives people say. Oh that's a this is. This is a phony site this was td evaluation so again. Social proof is still going to work. But as some Con artists who figured out a way to game the system have caused us to move away from certain kinds of techniques for deciding what what's true social all right and we have one more final question. We're gonna return to the heartland of america austin texas from jeremy strike and just has a request from you. He asked if you would just share with all of us because he loves the so much how you talk about. Perceptual contrast in the story of sharon the coach the coed writing home to her parents. So if you could share that story with us. I read it and i was cracking up. I think it's a great way to show For anybody who hasn't read the book the type of work that you that you're doing sure so. Perceptual contrast is the phenomenon in which people who seek to things that are presented in our right at one after the other. If they are different from one another i they seem even more different than before so It you should always When you present something also say compared to something else you because people are always going to look at the that the difference. So i got this letter that came across my desk from sharon who is a student And let me read some of it. And so sharon Was writing back to her parents for the first time and She says the following dear mother and dad. Since i've left for college and have been remiss in writing. I'm sorry for my thoughtlessness in not having written before. Well i'm getting along pretty well. Now that the skull fracture and the concussion. I got out of there. I jumped out of the window of my dormitory after it caught fire shortly after my arrival is pretty well. you'll now.

"Clubhouse and this is something i don't like so like oh my goodness. I have to build a whole new following. I mean if you are on social media and maybe use social media for work it's like did facebook and then you know who's on facebook your parents right and then you moved onto twitter and now twitter is basically journalists and angry people and then instagram comes along and i love instagram. And it's a great place to me but then kick dot com. Oh do i have to do that too. I skip that. I skipped snapchat and now it's another thing to build a following on their lengthy. I mean i just who has time for this stuff. It drives me nuts and so i just the idea of trying to build another following on another platform just feels like it's like. Oh i just climbed a mountain. Okay let me just take the gauntlet down and climb up it again and again again. what's next. Somebody told me about some new instagram. That's coming up i. I don't even want to know about that so building new following. It's just a and they make it easy of course because they sort of tap into existing but just who has time to even accept all those people are to connect to other people. I find that difficult number four monetization so one of the things are trying to do to get all the fomo. And i saw this in my own little experiments on clubhouse is just listening in two sessions. There's a lot of sessions about how to build your following or how to make money on clubhouse because they're introducing monetization which is really smart however you sorta like when you're somebody who was creating content for a living in you're like oh boy another opportunity for monetization. You're excited but we still have no idea how that's gonna work and if there's any money in it and so gangling this monetization over people's shoulders died in the idea that because it's a new social network it's kind of the rules are unwritten in that. We're starting from zero in that. Anybody can be big. It's like you can blow up on clubhouse and become rich and famous That's a lot of formal that's being generated and people definitely feel it and they want to get involved in monetization angle is getting. But i just don't even know what that means yet. And so i think it's clever of them to gingell the little carrot of monetization in front of people as a way to get people to want to build a following and spend time on the app but at the same time we know the definition of fomo perception. There's something better out there than which doing right now. Perception can be deception. And frankly like who knows.

"Everybody it's another episode of after hours and today. Oh boy we're going to talk about the most fomo inducing social media app out there drum. Roll me second drummer. Drummoyne desk here. It's called clubhouse okay so you might remember a couple of weeks ago. We had A listener mail. Message from brent mcginnis and i was talking to brat around that time and we stayed in touch. He wrote me a note and he said hey. Do you have any advice for clubhouse. You know i'm going to start getting involved clubhouse and my my answer was i don't know because clubhouses causing me a bunch of foam stress i don't think about clubhouse and so i decided to talk about club does this week because it. I just said it like a canadian. Their club hosts. I meant clubhouse. Because everybody's talking about clubhouse. I feel like every conversation i have has a clubhouse element and everybody kind of criticize out clubhouses the worst but yet they're all on it and so i just think it's interesting to unpack that. What the heck is going on with clubhouse and so i have five conham went through for five hot takes on clubhouse that i wanna share with you today okay. Hot take number one this. I don't think it's that hard to take. But tell you think i think clubhouse is interesting and i'm gonna tell you why i have spent a little time on there and people have cool conversations. That are outside of the norm. So i think the very obvious use case clubhouse it's a place to congregate a following so for example we can have a really cool foam sapiens event. Where a bunch of us get together and we start talking about the show and the things that we like from the show. It'd be great chance for me to meet some you listeners. And maybe we'll even do that in fact if you're interested doing that and you're a member of clubhouse I would love to hear more about that. You can actually follow me on clubhouse at petro mcguinness so check me out patrick mcguinness and i just like like the fact that you get groups of people together and there are some really interesting people. Obviously the musk's of the world now those types come on. That's great too. But i i was on a A bunch of conversations about dating or about social life for about politics and people. I never heard of were getting up and talking pretty honestly and sometimes saying some crazy things. I was like ward. You said that. While but i just think it's a great way to learn about topics that you may not have exposure to and frankly i was looking to a conversation about race and that's a conversation that i really wanted to hear and i don't have all the time with with certain people in so hearing about Concepts of racial equity and and in from people who are living Living lives are affected by racism for me was super education. I valued being able to hear that. So i think there's a lot of value for people when they listen on clubhouse but let's move onto number two hot tag number two. It is super super time. Consuming i mean you get on clubhouse and then you like fourteen hours later when you get off because your phone is dying. You're like oh my god like what time go i. I wonder if people maybe just put it on in the background while they're doing other things but who is just. It just sucks up a lot of time. And i have a good friend who's been doing a benz on there and she was telling me her experiences like yeah. I love doing it. But frankly i you know i i. It's like start things. Go for three hours. So you start at nine o'clock and suddenly midnight and you're sorta like gosh. What are the time go and so it does require a ton of time and that's an interesting thing because obviously during a pandemic people have time to spare and so it's just a great way to kill time but what's going to happen when people are busy again. Are they gonna wanna be clubhouse. That is a mystery. We don't know what's going to happen. But i do think that the time sort of element. It's going to have to change because people cannot devote three hours for conversation Every week or every night or however frequently you're on it. And i think maybe after the pandemic will see that those conversations will get a little shorter. That's what i would predict but we will see when that happens.

"Take this opportunity to ask you to review. This podcast go. Podcast app subscribe review. Leave a little information. It helps people find the show. It means so much to me to know what you're thinking. Okay i don with that now but you get my point. There's a lot of asking of reviews but we have trouble integrating it in other parts of our lives whether it's professional whether it's personal and that's why i want to dive into this critical skill today because we need it. We need it for work. We need for life. we need it for. Investors were giving feedback to pitches giving feedback as a board member. Were getting back to a friend or family member. We need to learn how to give feedback. Because if you do it badly you can hurt people's feelings and you can't get nowhere we want to figure that out. And that's why i've invited doctor theresa houston here. She received her phd in cognitive psychology from carnegie mellon and she was the founding director of the center for excellence in teaching and learning at seattle university. She's also the author of teaching what you don't know in how women decide and her new book which is going to talk about today is. Let's talk make effective feedback your superpower and she's really good at laying things out so what i think you're gonna like about our discussion today. Is that not only. We kind of talk about what is feedback. What does it look like when it's good and it's bad but then we get into really how you can make better decisions when you're giving feedback. I think it's really important. Because let me tell you something especially now with the zoom world we live in. You might have to give feedback over zoom. So there's all kinds of new challenges but most of us weren't doing very well in the feedback space even before right now so. This is an area where we can all improve especially me now. I will pause here. I'm not gonna ask again for feedback on the podcast. 'cause i just did that but i will say love your questions. Love your comments. Keep them coming. We've had a lot of uptick in responses to the show is. I've been getting a lot of emails. And so i love hearing from you and we're getting more and more people coming to me with things that we can put on after hours questions that you want to talk about so please reach out. I love hearing from you. Let's not get patrick. Mcguinness dot com. You can find me an instagram. At patrick mcguinness on twitter at pj mcginnis all right and now under the show so as we saw at the beginning of the show the stats. Tell us the people don't like getting feedback so we start our conversation. I asked trees this basic question. Why is it so hard to give feedback. They're really kind of three reasons. That it comes down to one is were afraid. We're going to crush souls right especially during covid We don't want to hurt the other person's motivation. We don't want to hurt our relationship with them. I think the second reason all too often. We assume the other person won't change so it's not worth the effort to give them feedback. I had this experience This past fall. I had hired a designer freelance designer and her initial designs were really disappointing and my first thought was. Oh who was my second choice. I'll hire her. Instead is too and i have an expert on feedback while you're ruthless. Let's start from scratch. And it's just fascinating because i thought i was getting her best work and i also thought this would be somehow less work on my part to start all over with a new designer. Which doesn't make any sense. But i think this is a common thing that we jumped you. That we're getting someone's best work and we don't give them a chance So i think that's the second reason and then the third reason i believe there's an identity issue we wanna see ourselves as the good guy we wanna see ourselves as a caring manager and if we say that someone is underperforming or that their work designs weren't as good as the i need them to be. We feel like we're the bad guy right. We're suddenly not the carrying manager. The truth is if you give feedback while you can be the good guy. You're helping that other person improve and you're helping them meet a high standard which they're gonna feel good about as well as you're gonna feel good about so you looked directly into my soul right there Because i we'll talk about this later. But i am definitely the guy who doesn't want to upset people. I want to like me s everybody. You probably figured that out about me. But yes i am and so that has always been my challenge. Now it is also interesting. You know as we think about this. I i worked in the corporate world for at least gate if not more if i think back to it and i got feedback like four times. At least that. I remember for smaller. Bits of feedback but sort of really sitting down and giving me valuable feedback. I would ask for it and theoretical. We had these three sixty programs with reviews. And things like that but to be honest with you. I was hungry for feedback that i didn't get as were many of my colleagues so there's clearly an issue here and i'm just wondering as we before we get into the topic and how he dress this issue just to get kind of definitional terms correct how you defined feedback most of us. Think of feedback is a one way conversation right where one person is telling in. The other person is listening I even looked up. the business. Section dictionary defines feedback as quote unquote. The information sent to an entity about his prior behavior so that the entity may just its current and future behaviour. I hear that definition. And i think that's the kind of feedback. You give a robot right someone without any feelings. The business dictionary has it. Sounds so dead inside. The person who wrote i was dead inside exactly and they thought they were talking to other people who were dead inside and i think i. I have a different definition of feedback. I think that good feedback is a two way conversation. It's that simple. It's a two way conversation if i'm the feedback ever. I'm letting you know what i see in your behavior your performance but also asking questions. I'm listening i'm learning. I'm trying to understand how you see the situation. I even ask questions when i pray someone so if someone just gave the best presentation i've seen them give all year. I'll be like how. What did you do. What did you do. What did you do this time. What was the prep that you put into that. What was the insight that you have. I want to help you reconstruct that again. And so i ask a lot of questions as part of my feedback even when it's praised because the other person's going to really enjoy digging into what they did. Well i gotta tell you The the fact that you even think about that and that you prepare for that a lot of this is probably about preparation is we're going to get into but it's one of these things like nobody teaches you how to give feedback. It's not like you when you're in graduate school. Or you're an undergrad or even high school people are like okay. Now we're gonna do the feedback giving unit of this class right. Is this something that we just assume we learn on the fly which is fine except obviously it's not going very well. Where do i mean as you think about it. Where do people tip the ones who are giving feedback. Where are they learning how to do that. I think most of us learn by trial and error how to give feedback And i've had this similar experience. I'm doing a master's program right now through oxford university through their business school and we just finished oliver coursework and never once. Did we have the class on how to give feedback right and these are all leaders and managers though. This is definitely one of the skills we should have. But we learn through trial and error i Before started giving talks in consulting with companies. They spent almost twenty years giving feedback to professors helping them get better with their teaching. I basically working to make good professors your favorite professors okay and i've coached lawyers of coach nurses. Ceo's engineers even once coached a choreographer on how to give feedback to his dancers right. And i'm sitting in the corner of the room. And there are lines of dancers coming towards me live. And i'm like whoa. How does he give feedback to the these.

"Fomo and now. It's time for the foam moment of the show. And i want to talk today about how you can think about all of those great business ideas or maybe not great business ideas that pop into your head as you move through the world if you're listening right now which you obviously are your foam sapiens and so you as a fumble sapiens are going to think like an entrepreneur all the time it's part of who you are and you're curious but how do you convert all that energy into prophets. The here's what you do. And this is based on. The patrick j mcginnis system which i promise actually works because i use it and it's turned into some real estate for me so there are six steps ready step number one. Write it down if you put something on paper. It's a lot harder to have flawed reasoning into. Lie to yourself when you have to commit it to paper. You have to come up with some basic logic. If not basically doesn't stick to the page so right the idea down keep list start writing it down adding to it. Fleshing out your ideas as you go along number to do some research. i mean. That's an obvious point but don't just research on google. Searching for on. Google is a great way to start but reach out to people who actually know something about the industry for example. If you're trying to open an ice cream shop in new york city go to the blocks where you think you might want to open an ice cream shop and ask people on the street whether they would buy ice cream on the block. Go hang out at another ice cream shop in another town or another part of your city and talked to the owner tried to get real world data. I remember earlier in my career. I made this investment. It was in turkey and was in retail chain and we had a couple of stores open and we were going to put in a bunch more money. And you know what we didn't do. We didn't visit the store and stand outside. And when i later did that because the company was doing terrible realize people would walk by scratched our heads and keep walking on because they didn't quite understand why we are actually selling in the store. The concept wasn't clear so there are so many ways to gather data in the real world. The world is a laboratory. Go out and experiment outside of your home and your computer number..

"Foam and now it's time for the foam moment of the show. In today I'm joined by Jeff Clements Co founder and CEO of American Promise Jap is working fulltime on the passage of the Twentieth Amendment to the Constitution to repeal citizens united that Supreme Court ruling that essentially opened the door to unlimited money and politics. Now you might have noticed that. The Solutions Catherine and Michael recommended earlier on the show steered clear of anything that required a constitutional amendment as it's pretty heavy lift, but. But Jeff believes that it is possible to get one past, and as you're about to learn. He's made some real progress towards this objective, but before we go. There I wanted to start a conversation by asking. You have to explain the problem. He's trying to solve the problem. Is We see is that we're GONNA be unable to get people to participate as equal citizens in our democracy if we don't treat them that way, and as long as we can't have reasonable limits on money. In how it's used elections in how it corrupts, the process nobody believes that they're actually been treated as equal citizens in a Republican. So that's the problem we saw so there's a sort of boring wonky answer herself solve the problem of campaign finance, and how money corrupts the system, but the much bigger systemic answer, which is why it's a constitutional amendment as it were solving the problem of. The age old problem in America that do we really believe? We're all created equal. Effectively together That's our big mission. Our big goal and that's why we think we really have to lock it into the Constitution and so how did you end up taking on this 'cause why why why you to go for this political amendment? You know for the first few years after the Supreme Court did strike down the campaign finance laws I did some more legal work in the area, and it became clear that we basically had a fundamental disagreement. is cases are five to four. Most Americans think we should have reasonable limits. Money is used in elections. But there was this big constitutional issue that was going to fundamentally shape how America and our democracy was GONNA look and I felt like it should not be left to lawyers and judges and the beauty of constitutional amendment campaign is that invites Americans into the process to decide what we believe. What do we think the constitution means and we do that? We usually get it right. You know we decided. Yeah. Women should vote you know we should end slavery and allow equal protection of the laws. Those are all amendments so. it started as a way of breaking out of this sort of lawyers, judges law professor discussion. The most Americans were included on or invited to talk about. and and then as it built, it became clear what we could actually win this the. That's where we launched American progress in two thousand sixteen, so. Imagine a lot of people this yeah, too much money in politics, but it's an abstract problem. We don't necessarily all have the stats at our fingertips. So can you give me a couple of examples in statistics and numbers about WH- the size of this issue. We're spent about sixty billion with a B., sixty billion dollars in the last ten years on federal and state elections. Most of that money now is coming from outside the campaigns themselves, because what citizens united did was say that so-called independent spending. CanNot be limited so that created the super pacs and the dark money. There was none of that in. Say Two thousand. Now it's. It's billions of dollars in every election cycle. The last presidential race was in that cycle and twenty sixteen was over six billion closing ten, according to some estimates, this one's going to be much more, but it filters down this whole system through the Senate races and everywhere else, and here's the thing..

"That's why fruity pebbles teamed up with Red Cross over two million views. Wow and that's not even Matt's most popular video. I wanted to figure out how does what he does. So I started by asking Matt how he creates such popular content without leaving his apartment or even spending money. It's it's funny because like you just have to be resourceful you know. I don't anything you've seen me do is just on my My phone like I. I should everything on my phone. I edited on a free editor I found on the Internet. You can if you have a good idea. That's that's grounded in like a world that everyone knows relatable. I think that's kind of the key. Really just get lucky sometimes with the ideas and getting them out there. I you know what's the secret to making something go viral. Not just one time. You're not a one hit wonder but doing it over and over again I mean Dude. I wish I knew. I wish I could give you like a formula. But in general I find that the best stuff is the stuff that people are gonNA WANNA share with their friends like. I can make something that most people look. It's a funny video but if it has that factor where someone is GonNa WanNa send it to their friends you know this is totally us or Yo. This is exactly you and me at the last year. That's when people really start You know it explodes. Because everyone has some kind of story that they can relate to the video specifically a memory about it and is it. Is it more about having just a bunch of people sharing it to their smuggled group friends or is it all about having like a couple of big names? People were influencers. Share your stuff. I think it's it's a little bit of both like there's obviously a huge bump when when a big twitter celebrities share something. I'll notice you know a ton of notifications for the rest of the day. If something like that happens but I do find that like like my best video was about Like trying to walk into an office conference room when someone else has booked and I think that one did so well because it was being shared by students who deal with that at the study hall and leg it was being shared by anyone in the workforce who works at like an office was shared spaces and so yes as much as like the big names can really boost your. Get your stuff out there. It's also very helpful. Just do something for people like you and may just regular people who live pretty regularly who. I'm curious of the sort of influence. Her names people that you when you when you log into twitter and you see that they've changed your stuff in your drops who those people very. Recently it was Chrissy re tweeted. One of my videos like exploded for a couple days Jane Lynch shared one of my videos. Recently it's like it's exciting and the you know because you're like Oh these people admire what they do and you know they've got a good career so it's cool to be like oh they're saying what I'm doing is funny invalid. It's reaffirming now. You're trapped in your apartment making these videos for who knows how long I'm curious if you're starting to see that this is actually having an impact though where you're getting opportunities from people who could give you your next year career is this generating long-term value for you. You know time will tell right now. It feels like something's happening. I I do work with like an agent and a manager and I know that they've encouraged me to keep making things and because of that have had some people reach out and like when I did my corona virus commercials that everyone's doing I did get a few like People that work in post production that wanted to potentially use me for real voiceover opportunities so You know nothing that I can talk about right now but I do think like. I'll be getting more additions because of just you know cranking out work so that you've managed to create things that go viral that resonate with people and a lot of people who are listening right have businesses. They're creating content all the time and there. Maybe not getting much out of that. You know you write an article. You put that out there on Instagram. And you get like four likes. So what is your advice to people who want to create content that resonates but also could potentially go viral. Try to make sure that everything I do is very real and honest. I think I think people the issue people have is where they try to make things that they think will be appealing. Where the reality is you just have to speak like a human? When you're on social media you have to like talk talk to your friend or family member. You can't sound like a robot when you're trying to make things want people to watch them. You have to sound like everyday people saw this big okay so one last question for you. Fear of a better option is a term. We talk about on this show. It's the idea that we are. We are waiting for something. Better come along and it can lead to paralysis. Because you're trying to make something and I imagine when you make videos you could spend all day perfecting it and editing it and thinking about in rewriting. So how do you get past that sort of desire to keep on fiddling with project and actually put it out there? That's why I like doing little iphone videos because it's a lot easier to be like. Hey you made a forty second video. This is not your feature film that's GonNa go to the Oscars you know. Just launch it. If it's ninety nine percent there and you will. You'll probably be happy. You did instead of stressing glue risk projects. You can follow. You got a lot more easily totally totally right not shout. Thanks for coming by. I'm credit and that's the end of another episode.

"Thanks for being here. Jake Molly and Jeremy. Thank you so much foam and now it's time for the foment of the show and I'm joined by Kate Walker. Co Presence Learning which helps schools provide special education remotely. She's also a mother who is currently home schooling. Two daughters are starting our conversation by asking what she's seeing right now in the education space. I am seeing so much stress and so much uncertainty both from schools who are figuring out on the fly how to remotely educate all their students and then from parents who are not sure if what they're getting from their schools is good if it's right a lot is being asked of parents to not just supervise but to engage with their kids and to participate in the education. And it's it's a lot so parents are you know as they do. They're talking to each other and they're comparing notes and they're trying to figure out is what I'm getting and what's happening with my kids equal to or better than or worse than what is happening with somebody else's children and in another school yes so it's competitive and it's scary because it's not just a couple of weeks here we're talking about months and months and potentially who knows how long this will go on. And so what is the impact that this has? I guess you think about us. Talk to tons of schools all over the country. How will this affect children? So I think that it that the big the big point which is made is that. It's not just a couple of weeks. Now it's continuing and we don't know how long it's going to continue and we don't know next year if everyone is going to come back in the same way or if they do. Will there be other INS and outs throughout the year. So I think because of that that that's what's GonNa make actually be okay for students in the long run because schools have shifted from where they were in March saying. Okay we just need to close for a couple of weeks or we just need to hang in there for a month. And then we'll get back to normal to really shifting to we a program in place that ensures continuity of service true continuity of education whether we can be together in the school or whether we need to do this online with flexibility to go back and forth between the two. So that takes time. I mean you jump into something and it's not going to be great in most places the first week that you do it and you keep on iterating you keep on improving so now a lot of schools are into doing this and are you taking the time now to plan for what it'll look like through this summer and into next year so it's only going to get better and better okay. So this is your job literally advise and provide distance learning for school. So I WANNA start talking about the advice you can give. Let's start with schools? Say you had a bunch of principals sitting in front of you right now. What's the advice you would give to them about shifting their their education online so the big advice? I would give is to try to do the best that you can try to do as much as you can there. There's been a whole dialogue out there. Where where some schools are taking the position of if we can't be sure that every single student can benefit from this service or can receive service at home than we shouldn't do it for anyone and then there are other schools who are taking the approach that I would more advocate for. Which is you know. It's not going to be the same as it was when everybody was coming to school. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try and we shouldn't try to do as much as we possibly can and it's those schools that are already doing a lot. They have you know they have happier parents. They have more engage students. I think that the key piece of advice is you take your time to build a program that works for you but Orient Yourself around trying to do as much as you can not trying to be careful about doing things that that won't work for one hundred percent of your population. There's your there's a real sort of question of equity and access in all of us that every child is getting an equal education right now because there are really there. There's big differences in how much technology you have at home. What your Internet access is like and where the parents are. And how much can they engage or not engage with students so those are very real things that need to be dealt with but I think the schools who are dealing with those issues. The best way are the ones that are really jumping. An-and leaning in and and trying to do more not you know using using that inequity as a reason not to try feel perfect is the enemy of the good or the. Fogo as I call it There could be a better solution out there. But you just need to get going on question productivity so not only. Are you running this business but you also have two daughters at home? Who your home schooling right now. So for all the working parents out there who are juggling these things. What have you learned. What's your advice for them? My biggest advice is to trust. Talk to your school and trust your school. You know. It's not. It's not going to be the same as it was when you could drop your children off at school every day and leave them in the hands of your principal in your teachers. More is falling on all parents right now and parents are frustrated by it. They're asking more questions and they're trying to figure out how to get some really fear some of that you know. We'll all figure out together with schools. How to shift balances back and forth but you know more than anything. I just suggest appearance to trusting. Your schools are doing their best to work with what they're giving you and to also know that you know kids are very resilient and they learn. They learn from school but they also learn from experiences all kinds of experiences. So if nothing else I really recommend the parents push their kids to reflect on this time writing journal document the crazy experience of living and learning during a pandemic into just think about what it means for them and how it how it might change their lives next year when they go back to school. So I think there's there are a lot of ways to learn right now and I think we just to communicate back and forth. I think a child's education has always been a collaboration between the school and the parent and that the dynamics have shifted in that tremendously right now but I still think if if both sides keep returning to the core of you know parents and schools need to work together will feel better about it as as things continue to change all right kate walk.

"Very driven when I was younger. Promotions and taking on more and doing more is vitally important. I think you've got to set some boundaries for yourself. You've got to be who you are. Got To be the best you can be. You can't you can't try to be what others are ambitions wonderful but not if you're not happy along the way so every step of the way you should be enjoying it and not wonder what's next or what am. I missing out on or wait. This person got promoted ahead of me. Your Day in time will come and I know this is much easier said than done but if you're constantly wanting the next thing then you're not enjoying the current thing and that doesn't mean by the way if you cut back on that you're not ambitious you can be ambitious and want to grow but still enjoy each step and I think that's a that's a tough balance as well So I would tell people to want that next thing and work hard for that next thing while you're enjoying the current thing Otherwise you're not going to be so happy. Yeah and and you know what's ironic is that if you can move you get that thing and then you're enjoy that either because you want the next thing and the next thing and so you so you if you can learn. I think it's like the little things in life. If you can enjoy the little things in life than the big things come easier and that and that comes your career in your coffee in the morning but it's sort of like this idea that we have to be ambitious to the point that we're self flagellating non join anything. It's a long way to live your life. It's a waste. Yeah and look. There's always going to be the next thing. And by the way it goes with everything in life the next car the next half I mean. When does it ever end so you just have to enjoy it and But you have to be comfortable enough in your own skin and confident enough in yourself. And that's hard and we all struggle with that at times in order to do that so it's much easier said than done but I think that's probably the best thing you can do In work in life so I thought there was. There was only one room for one. Mcginnis on Foam Sapiens by turns out. You're wrong all right. Peter McGinnis President of Vanni. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you foam. And now it's time for the foam or the show today on welcoming back Ivytech Pushkin and Marco Day own the CO founders of Brooklyn based. Rip Van. The better for you snacks company best known for its troop waffles. Rip Join Me from home in Brooklyn while Marco zoomed in from Richmond. Virginia and to start out. I ask how they are managing through this moment. Covert his changed the external circumstances and within that you have to figure out. What can you do to optimize your business? That's one and then the second thing is as you get through co Vid in the circumstances eventually go back to normal. What are you doing right now to ensure that when the transition takes place you're able to manage the business as you're managing the business before. Okay so what does that mean in terms of specific changes that you're making right now with Cova. There was a big external shock to our business especially within within food service. I mean we have a lot of distribution that is in coffee shops offices in so overnight that went to two. Zero has a lot of those places where closing down. So you know we. We really pushed Our focus towards towards online and really wear where consumers were Can can get our product and I think it's been really good because we've been able to build out And grow our online business significantly and also really connect with consumers on a much deeper level that you know haven't been able to. I think we've been very very focused on on offline. We actually revamped our website so we launched a new new website Recently so that was a that was a big focus for us. You know we really started email marketing As well and we really weren't weren't doing that as much of a focus on previously and rip as you think about dealing with the needs of your employees right now I mean you have complained who are looking in New York City or different places. They're spread out but they're also dealing with their own personal situation. So how can leaders startups like yours? Create an environment where the people who work for them feel feel safe. I think on a personal level it's You know I think basic hugh is are you being mindful of the load that a team member is able to take and are you being mindful of whether they're stressed out in their personal life or not. And Are you able to connect with them on a personal level so they feel that they're not only being heard that they're being understood Especially during this time and I think if if leadership is able to do that really well during this time it's GonNa The bonds between the critical relationships with team is really Solidify a good culture because if he can get through something like Cova and the team is pumped in positive. It's I mean you're building huge dividends and Culture Marco. This isn't the first time that you guys have gone through a crisis you. You've just had a really interesting sort of brand refresh and email campaign. That went out that I really liked. You talked about the fact that you almost run out of money at one point. And then you're factory burned down you've been through these crucible moments before. What are you taking from this experiences. In order to apply those lessons right now. I think that previously the first time that there is a a major crisis in the business It feels like the sky is falling in. I think it started emotional aspect to that in this time. There's a lot less emotion to it where it's basically saying okay. This has happened. We've you know these customers of ours have shut down. What are we going to do about it? How what effect does that have on the business and on the on the top line on the bottom line and what decisions do we have to make I think in previous crises like we were. The business has been so emotional for us that it feels like. Oh my God. Everything's failing and this is going to be the end of it and that's not how we felt this time. I think we really had been through. Been through enough of those near death experiences that we understood that you know this is not the end will figure out a way. And let's just make sure that we go about that process in a really systemic and thoughtful way. Well guys. It's been good seeing you today and fun fact for all you listeners. I actually go to their headquarters in Brooklyn as often as I can and I usually walk out with a box of waffles for making the trip. I actually went through two boxes in one month when I was writing my book to commemorate that Happy Memory.

"You can kind of customize what you do in your life to your own objectives and you don't have to be afraid of it. Don't follow the crowd. Don't run after other people be decisive. Choose what you want. Live your life the way you want to and I think that You know it's something that's easier said than done right especially when it comes to things where for example careers where we're taught to just one path and you're on this ladder and you've got you've gotta take it and if you don't do this and say you went to school where all of your friends are working in certain types of places and you you feel this social pressure to keep up the you don't miss out and so that's been a lot of what I think about is just having the agency to choose to. Do you actually want because what? I've learned having done that now since last financial crisis is that made me a heck of a lot more happy. And that's a that's a key thing to optimize for. So how did your experiences an investor shape the way that you think about decision making? I never really thought of myself or sort of thought of decision making as a as a strategy or process until I worked in metro capital and then When you do that of course you produce memos and you you have to write out your rationale and you have to sell your point of view people and that really was fundamentally I thought about this and in fact in the book I use the the process of venture capital a bunch of times to understand How to make decisions and how to show people how to do them because making a decision is like making an investment. You're looking for a return on that decision like you look for a return on an investment and of course there are no perfect decisions and venture capitalist do a great job of thinking through the risks and then making decisions based on the risk and the reward of that decision so that kind of the framework and I think another aspect that that really informs his. I encourage you in the book and in life to write things down having a record of what you did and then be able to learn from it and revisited is so valuable and so that's something that I constantly talk about an actually do myself. Yeah is that what? What is your daily practice round? That look like Oh. It's not pros and cons. I I do much better in life and you know I was a writer him. Somebody who who who expresses himself in paper or on the screen in a way that gives me comfort and so what I like to do is really sit down and write down rationales and then I keep lists of these things and I go back and look at them from time to time. Where was because you know you never gonNa Remember where your head was that but when you force yourself to write it down you will yeah. That's really true. I'm so talk to me about the process of writing the book. So listen as somebody who had foam fogo. I'm well in touch with the fact that I'm not immune to them either and show both times written a book What I've done is simply to leave and spend time in almost like I mean it's not dissimilar to what we're living now with quarantine for fear missing out. I went to Mexico City which is a place that I love. I always choose the place that I love and where I'd like to spend more time so first time it's my homeland of Nain in the middle of the winter. Though so that I would really work and not just enjoy lobster rolls second. Time was Mexico City in middle of winter so whether it was good but not amazing have to say I was extremely jealous as I read your book and you talk about being in Mexico City and writing in a coffee shop and I thought I wouldn't that I mean it's amazing and it was it. Was this this coffee shop boy. Would I became friends with them? In the in the acknowledgements and It was great because I was. I have no problem spending time alone if I know that there's a reason for it and I'm a super extrovert so I had to extract myself. I spent every day writing from nine. Am to like to. Then I would go for a run. I decided to train for a half marathon while running because last time I wrote a book I put on ten pounds so I thought won't let me work on that and then in the evenings I would add it and I just worked on it for a month and I got my first rap and so that's my process. I rarely debate patrick. I'm sorry and you worked on it for a month and you got your first draft. Is that something you want people to hear? I'm GonNa tell you something it's because I basically worked on it like sixteen hours a day and I had a very very very strong book proposal so That's my process both times written book. My editors have said you're the fastest person we've ever worked with and so I like to go really deep right right that way. Of course I have lots of things I've written over the last couple of years that draw into that but that's kind of my process and And it works for me so you have a question here that I don't WanNa go to Patrick because then we will we will. We will reach our conclusion too soon. I am going to ask you about what you want people to remember from your book but before we get there. I wouldn't know which which part of thinking about Foam Info was most challenging for you personally. The the thing about this book is a book about decision making the draws upon my business experience and obviously my experience creating foam foget but there is also a tremendous amount of knowledge out there clinical psychology and Decision Science and. I wanted to sure that I was true to that. And then I brought in the research as well so I did a ton of research and it was important to me that I felt comfortable that I was integrating that thinking into the book and so I think the thing for me was getting really smart reading all of the research and then finding how that addressed in Fogo. Which would follow was pretty easy. Because there's been so much work around that but Bobo is a little bit more. Abstract getting to the point where I could distill that into very usable strategies. That were that were you know not just some theoretical stuff but set the all can actually do in our daily lives. That was the most challenging part. That's what I love to do as a writer and in my work is to take something that maybe a little complicated or abstract and make it easy for everybody to use. Because that's how we have to live. We have to find things that are simple and because if we if they're not simple and doable we'll never do them and so that that's important to me. You know trouble you say that. It's a bit more complicated and abstract yet. It was it was the piece that appealed to me intellectually. Maybe it's because I've been using the word foam. Oh now since I dunno since came up with eight years and years ago But PHOBOS HAVE PROBLEM. I have in my life. Which is that. There are so many decisions to make and making anyone decision. That's GonNa cut me off from being able to live any of the other possibilities and it is very easy to be indecisive. That is when that maybe we talk a little bit less about because we're a little bit afraid of it. Frankly I think the the the reality is that we didn't have the word for it and so I always think about. This book is sort of the Trojan horse is the foam. Because that's the thing that people know about it. It's the hook but what I really hope. I guess you were going to ask this question. I'll just sort of started the answer already. Which is that what I really hope is Fogo to me is so damaging and in myself and other people I just have no tolerance for it and if I can contribute anything to humanity it's naming shaming something that is super damaging and then giving people the tools to be more decisive and to make sure that the people around them are also more decisive.

It's about reaching an option quickly enough to be able to take action on it and keep going and move on and so you kind of have to make peace with the fact that you're not gonNA hit the best option.

Yeah I also think it's because we can do it from our homes if feels so good to be productive and know that you're creating something new even though you're actually i. I have a little daily ritual that I've started since quarantine which because I was like having trouble getting dressed in the morning and taking a shower so every morning I put on some sort of different outfit. That's like thematically one day I was frejus acid and things like that. It's really it's really weird but if you follow me on Instagram Patrick j McGuinness. You can see these daily these daily routines that I do in it like this morning is a horrible day. Outside rainy. Rainy rainy didn't want to get up but I thought to myself. Why want address today? Like a cat burglar. So or PAP burglars. I called it and so I got up. Took a shower and put on my costume..
