How Beauty Insider Tina Hedges Created LOLI, an Environmentally Sound Brand
"Career has taken her. From the perfume counter at macy's inside a conic brands like Christian Dior Estee Lauder Al. but after almost two decades beauty shetty personal crisis that inspired her to start lally beauty the I zero waste organic food grade approach beauty we talk about her a Pitney the one thing she asks every investor she meets with and why she is so committed to getting this, right. Teen almost two decades in the beauty industry and then you had both a health scare and day crisis of conscience. What happened I had spent about almost about to get decades or so traveling the world in pretty high powered marketing roles and innovation roles for big companies in the industry pretty much helping, decide and create all the products in women's beauty cabinets and. started. Simultaneously, I had this weird across section of I started having all these other immune issues and systemic allergies. A No physician could sort of pinpoint what was really triggering it as well as went through early menopause. And I was in my mid thirties and no underlying health conditions for that and I started to think about. All of the products have been applying to my body from head to toe for almost two decades and I started thinking about all those buildup of toxins and chemicals, and I realized that I had been polluting my own body and simultaneously. I had this consciousness of wow. Not only have I been pushing into the world products filled with all these chemicals and nasty since and and carcinogens endocrine disrupters all of this you know really scary stuff but on top of that were blending all of that in eighty to ninety five percent water because most of your skin hair and body products are literally water you're paying for water. And then wrapping all that in single use plastic and when the world is running out of water, it's one of our most precious resources when the boy to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by twenty, twenty five. None of this makes any sense to me or None of that made any sense to me a when I had this convergence of the crisis of health and crisis consciousness. Once you had that a home moment what was the first thing you did to sort of take that idea and start? Making it an actual reality. So I had already left the corporate world and I had gone into the start world. I launched a very successful. vegan sulfate free hair brand. Actually I was the first to use reality TV show on Bravo a show called blow out about a hairstylist in La and his hair salon. But because of us sort of uniquely understood, it was basically an hour long infomercial. We turned the industry on dime because prior to that I mean it was super early days of reality to be. We're talking like two, thousand, four it was America's biggest loser where for the straight guy blow out and the apprentice those were the reality shows that were on at that time and I realized wait a second. This is a show about a hairstylist. Want we show him developing his own brand? and. Don't have done that. So we were the first do that. And the purpose of going back to that stories I know how difficult it is. To start a business especially as a minority Hispanic female founder over the age of thirty. So I was really scared to start this and I. Just. Kept finding excuses left a brighter I'm going to consult or help this person with their brand, and it finally got the place at I was just sitting there and I realized. What do I have to lose? What's the worst thing that could happen? So I- self-financed and out of my upper side small studio apartment I launched a test of Lawley and so that was the beginning. Lawley is the world's first zero waste organic food grade approach to beauty. I want break each part of that down what does it mean to be Zero Waste We go to farms and fairtrade cops around the world, and we find parts of organic food that are being wasted or being thrown away in the process. So for example, our Plum Elixir, we work with a organic farm four generation owned in France that grows a very rare plummets called the end tape them and sa- tiniest considered like the fog or caviar of plums it's it's quite unique. It's extremely potent in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, and when they make prune juice or pitted prunes, they were throwing away the colonel. And the Patriarch the father of this owner of the farm. About ten years ago said wait. We, press avocado oil from the pit of an avocado. We press all sorts of oils from pits Robin Doyle, why can't we press an oil and organic food grade oil from the pit of the plum? And he literally invented it like they're no one had ever had plum oil, and then he worked with the French bent to get it organic certified and recognized as a food ingredient, and then we started working with them and realized how powerful it was for skin hair
Energy Healing for Food Issues and Body Image Recovery with Sarah Speers
"Sarah Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for coming on. Could you talk about to kind of introduce yourself to listeners a little bit to start what were the biggest influences on your relationship with food and your body growing up Ooh I, love that question and thank you for having me. It's really interesting when I reflect on my relationship with soon, grind up I didn't think I had a lot of. Unhealthy eating. Messages I thought my family was relatively healthy. I thought I had a healthy relationship with food. In hindsight looking back I can see the the seeds of sort of unhealthy relationships creeping and mainly I would always eat sugar to self soothe as a kid and we used to have these nightly routines of always eating ice cream after dinner or using food as a reward, those sorts of situations which as an adult. Started to really come into fact in terms of my unhealthy eating habits and so as a child when I had this super active and I had a very high metabolism, it didn't appear to be an issue and then later in life I was able to see. Oh Wow, I really became attached to food and certain foods specifically became sort of my emotional crutch that I use as my wages Osu their self matic later in adulthood. Thank you for sharing that I. Love How you said. You know where you're talking about when people are kids if they're like just naturally in smaller bodies, it's like I love how you said it didn't matter that I was eating sugar like it didn't appear to matter. Right. So that's actually something that I run into a lot of the time when I coach kids for swimming and not something that I ran into growing up there people will be like, Oh you're swimmer it doesn't matter what you eat and the sense of. You can't see any changes on this people's bodies because they're teenagers and have insane metabolism's and also happened to have smaller body genetics I. Think it's so important to talk about that distinction. Yeah, and if I can also add that in terms of the body messages. Growing up because I was. So skinny might nickname literally on my sports teams or people my life would call me twiggy string bean and a my identity came really attached to having to be skinny to feel like I was valued or. Was Getting approval from people. So again and as an adult, you know sometimes we think your weight issues are just if you're overweight but for me, there is always this angst around I have to stay skinny because that's my identity in that's where my word comes from and so I didn't think I had. People affecting my body image growing up either I thought I had a lot of love for the people around me but even these seemingly harmless messages or fun nicknames were actually really shaping my identity to my body. Yes. So how did you go from that from kind of struggling with your relationship with food and with your body as a teen and maybe until like early twenties to transitioning to work with women on food freedom and specifically through energy work? Yeah. Will my story really took a turn it might twenty. So I would say most of my childhood teens and even young. Adult I felt like I had an okay relationship with food. But in my twenties I started to develop really severe eating disorder bulimia. Yeah and that happened because I started to go on a diet and I thought I wanna be really healthy and I wanted to see if I, can you know shed a few extra pounds and and that turned into a very obsessive? Counting calories coming up with really strict food roles and as a result, I just wasn't nursing my body and I was getting anxiety around what to eat and and it leads you very severe been gene and then bingeing purging I got stuck in that vicious cycle and suddenly I felt like. Oh. My Gosh how is life? Like you know the Pitney came one day when I was over the toilet that Oh, my God, this is not normal or healthy ns somehow become minority and so that became a struggle for six years. Once I got pulled into that I just was struggling so hard to get out and it controlled my life and it became my mission to heal my Sol's. So that I could then help other women because I did not want another woman to ever have to go through the agony and the like the torture that I was living in in my mind in just my reality, it was consumed and I lost myself to it and I was determined to get myself back if not better and then do everything in my power to help woman y'all. So that kind of started my like. My determination to figure this out and I was determined to try any in everything to to get better and so for a long time I, sort of was always turning to food. Let me try and control food. Let me use little power in. That will be my way to get over this like I'm just going to be perfect tomorrow. And that Kinda like I tried that over and over again and not just never worked right. The answer was not controlling food, and so I started to them look outside of that at other healing modalities. And I just got desperate inserted China everything in eventually stumbled Pon emotional freedom technique also noticed tapping and things like ricky and emotion code, and all these different energy healing modalities and Literally within a matter, six months pretty much all of my quote unquote symptoms seemingly disappeared like I just felt whole and complete again I felt like myself again, I felt empowered in normal again and it wasn't a fight or struggle. It just seems like as I got it through issue and really started to uncover all of these repressed emotions in the subconscious programming and these wounds. I didn't even know I was carrying. That were leading me to say stock in these unhealthy habits. Omega, it was like a radical shift, and so that is what made me then realized I need to get this massive these modalities out to as many women as I can because it may not be the one thing that's going to help but it is certainly missing piece in the equation and I think a lot of times we don't look at these other modalities that can be so powerful in conjunction with like proper nutrition or you know a good mindset etcetera. Yeah we're therapy exactly anything like that. Exactly.
Kids' Books Where Science Is The Adventure
"Griffith has always had two loves in life science and books. Well I'd always been very avid reader and I've always really enjoyed writing so ever since I was a young kid I've done both. I entered in writing competitions overtime. That love of writing and reading. For Fun every took a back seat to her work as a neuroscientist she became the head of her own lab at Rutgers University but then on maternity leave with her first daughter she decided to take a leap and jump. Start that passion for writing. I don't know if it was like the postpartum hormones or whatever but I just kind of had this like I don't know if I would call it in a Pitney but just something said you know. Just do this the end. You've been wanting to do this for a long time to do it. And so I changed my twitter handle to children's book writer who created a website and started writing and trying to figure out how to explain science concepts Kiddos. And it kind of snowballed from there a bit. The magnificent makers book series was born and I will say as a grown adult woman. I found these books delightful so these books follow best friends. Pablo inviolate on these out of the World Science Adventures. They're routinely zapped out of their third grade science class. One time getting sucked into a magical microscope and they go on these science adventures in this magical laboratory or magical maker space called the maker Maze and they're accompanied by a kind of Kooky scientist called Dr Crisp who has some really legit rainbow hair. Shout out your science fam- I WANNA make these books as inclusive as possible for everyone telling you what I saw it. I liked it was for the and it's not only important that these characters represent different backgrounds in identities. It's that they're all having fun doing science. And they're all really good at it and such day for one day. Only we leave this world and enter that of the magnificent
Trump’s presentation of changes in black voting is largely ridiculous — but not entirely
"Instance how did African Americans com so it becomes so closely identified with the Democratic Party pointed back to Lyndon Johnson fifty six years ago what's the what's the origin of what I'll call the synergy between black folks in Democrats I now right you know it's been a process I mean black people have not always voted Democrat there was a time when we voted and our own best interests and coming out of the civil war Democrats I mean blacks are recognizing that it was the Abraham Lincoln a message that they we're the party of the abolitionist they were Republican SO we align very closely to the Republican Party and then as we began to move into the Great Depression you began to see now you have Franklin D. Roosevelt black people at that particular time they would have been but need that the bottom rung of the economic ladder in here you have a Democrat president FDR's same will listen let's start social programs I ask you about some food and things like that welfare job programs SO black people began to pay attention to the Democrat party not in mass yet but they started looking at it and then you have the civil rights movement with Lyndon B. Johnson in nineteen sixty four Civil Rights bill that passed and although it was a Republican Party that made sure the bill could pass into law because Democrats wanted nothing to do with it it was of a democratic president that was that was leading the charge of the party the parties were not nearly as polarized at the time right southern I think southern southern racist Democrats were were very much oppose they were northern Democrats who were with Johnson and northern Republicans in western Republic yeah if you are a black person coming from the Emancipation Proclamation in eighteen sixty three down to nineteen sixty four of the of the civil rights bill that's a hundred a hundred plus years of Democrats being very enthusiastic in their desire to impede the the movement of black people so whether so whether it was some that was nice and some that maybe wasn't so much it didn't matter the fact is a hundred years between emancipation and the civil rights movement it with the Democrat party that was with great gusto impeding the life of black people so we asked our listeners who are conservatives of color to share why they joined the GOP here's what one person had to say hi there my name is Brian I'm not a black conservative but I am a conservative of color I used to be a Democrat it was a liberal but college I had sort of change of heart and what sort of sports my change with the Facebook group that said minorities that though the public could make me cry and it made me think no wonder the person feel that way and it made me also think you know why do I vote Democrat and so it kind of got me questioning my values and yeah and then you start thinking maybe I should start shopping around for parties and the lead now today fundamental conservative and had to be there and that is encouraged people other people of color to think yourselves if democratic card doesn't own your vote Kathy any part of Brian's story sound familiar to you I love it I love all of it and that's exactly what happened to me I've been I've been voting Republican primarily for over twenty years so this is a brand new I know we have a lot of black folks who are coming out now where at all their Medicare and I'm so excited to welcome them to the other side of the aisle we'll talk in a second about whether it's actually a lot when we look across the country but I had I'm excited about it I'm excited about it nonetheless but what but what the caller said exactly where I found myself when I was in college in my junior year I had the Pitney I wanted to get involved in politics so where did I go Hey I'm black I'm a Democrat so I went to the to the to the first Democrat office I saw sat down the white Democrats man who was running started talking to me and and the piston me a bubble popped up in my mind what what exactly does he believe what he believed doesn't align with what you believe and for the very first time I started thinking through what what do I believe and does his policies align with my policies and that was the seed that was planted that many years later has turned into me being very adamant about rescuing black people off the Democrat plantation and helping them to see what is in their own best interests but I get why black people vote Democrat I mean I was born into the Democrat party just like I was born into brown skin there was no point of separation I never remember a conversation it's just what you do here black we built this way and to step out of that essay why I'm no longer going to vote Democrat many black people like in it to me rejecting the color of my skin so it's very difficult for black people to have that appear Finney and then to have the boldness to say excuse me I'm going to think for myself that is a big deal for people to react and say it's like you rejecting the color of your skin have you ever heard that pushback from all my goodness I had that a lot I have been called every name under the bus Hey do you get all kinds you know I mean it's rhetoric right but everything in an instant and its rejection I lost all of my black friends except for two during the two thousand sixteen election when I came out saying I'm voting for president trump I mean it is literally a ten to rejecting your race and so it's very difficult we're live at the conservative political action conference on Todd's
Super Soul Sexuality with Rabbi Lisa Grushcow
"Both been really drawn to Judaism. I know for me personally. So many of my artistic. Inspirations I mean not consciously but they're all Jewish like Bette midler Sandra Bernhardt Barbra streisand lake. These people have informed so much of my view of the arts. And you know there's a strong part of what they do is related to Judaism and their spirituality and same for me. My I like comedy against version was Sarah Silverman who Super Jewish. And she's not embrace it and what I love about that. Religion is how it's both faith but also like an intellectual practice and people love to be conflicted in argue and disagree and I was raised Catholic. But I've never felt that catalyst ISM was really a space to question and I just love it. You get to do that in the Jewish faith. I don't think we could have found anyone better than Rabbi Lisa Grechko. Who is our special guest today? She used the Montreal Legend would you say the rabbi well she's a Rockstar as much as a rabbi. Can Be yes she is a rabbi at Temple Emanuel Shalom here in Montreal. She is the first queer. Rabbi that I personally know. She's quite famous here for really embracing progressive views for a religious leader. I'm in her sermons or super popular like people actually go out on a Friday night. Yeah I heard about it from a friend of mine. Who'S NOT Jewish? Who was just going and really found something real there. I feel she would be a great character on sex in the city. Like the girls would go to my sermon. I mean I just think we need rabbi Grechko in our lives in many ways as possible so we had a great conversation with her about sexuality. Faith family even divorce because she she has the same sex partner but she was divorced in the past and that sounded like it was a bigger problem in her community than being a lesbian. Rabbi crush go also does a lot of interfaith works. He works with Muslim. Meteors Christian leaders and it was really important for us to go beyond the politics of the day or whatever opinion people can have about different religions and some listeners might be atheists or some people listening might be fervent believers. We wanted to go beyond that and ask the big super bowl questions through. Rabbi you really got into Lake you we got rabbi Grechko set up a new. Didn't waste a second to get into your big oprah like question what came first in Your Life God or same sex desire. I was conscious of my spirituality. Let's say and religious sense of connection before I was aware of my own sexuality and then I was a relatively late bloomer. I wasn't out 'til My mid twenty say so for a while there was a real sense of struggle. And how would navigate those things together But that was more. A challenge with institution spiritually. That piece always stage. Did you feel spiritual As a child because I felt very I relate because I did feel as before I was kind of socialized in school and the world I felt the presence of a higher power. Is that what you're referencing? I had I had You know it's interesting because that's one of the things that might be different about Judaism in some ways that were so community based in so behaviorally based so I was very connected to the Jewish community as a kid. I went to a Jewish day school. I went to synagogue on a regular basis Shabat Dinners. Were part of our family life family celebration so all of those things were part of it. Some of the deeper connection came through learning which Jewish is a very spiritual activity kind of encountering sacred texts and asking questions and I grew up. Thanks to my parents with a lot of nature. A lot of travel lot of just sense of of being connected to something bigger you know going out in the middle of the night and lying down on a blanket and watching star shower I would say for me. It only took on a deeper resonance. Actually when I was struggling with coming out and figuring out what that meant for my path towards the rabbinate that was in some ways the closest that I got to a sense of calling or a Pitney because it felt like there's this path that I'm on and it's not going to be as smooth as I thought it would be so if I'm going to be on this path that has to really matter to me. It has to really be what I feel like I should be doing. Were you looking for answers? And that moment I think it was much more a feeling of of yearning of desire of closeness and relationship. I would say a sense that there was something someone who I couldn't didn't WanNa walk away from you said that coming out brought you closer to God. Can you talk about what way it brought you closer to God? I mean if you look at the story of the Hebrew Bible though stories that you've learned as a kid for US issues. One of the central parts of that story is the story of the exodus from Egypt. And it's a story of if you if you know the Hebrew going from meets rhyme. Which is the word for Egypt? But literally means the narrow place to a place of openness and possibility and the God who speaks to Moses out of the burning Bush. It's often terribly mistranslated as I am that I am. You know that Wayne was assessed. Who are you and imagine the Ten Commandments? Among God says I am that I am but it really is. I will be and so from me. Coming out was a very It connected me to that story of leaving a place of of narrowness and constraint and having a new sense of of possibility and freedom And to me that was a very religious spiritual story which I understood in a whole different way. I'm certainly not the first to do that. And that story has been used by so many people in so many important ways but for me. It really resonated. At that time John were usual. Kid I think maybe the arts for me and like my experience of the arts was the closest that came to spirituality as a kid but other than you know just loving Bible stories. I enjoyed it in the same way that I enjoyed fairy tales. You know what I mean. I don't think I really thought that. Much about my spirituality growing up Christian for me. I wasn't necessarily ashamed of being queer or being gay but shame was definitely an undertone in what in what you're describing it doesn't sound like that was your experience. It sounds like it was quite beautiful discovery for you to lean on that same sex desire and that queen is that was within you. I think in that sense it really Revealed from a Fault. Line between institutionalized religion spirituality And you know it's it's ironic because I'm a representative of of organized religion though. I sometimes joke. That Judaism is as disorganized. Religion is one can get. We don't have a central hierarchy in line of authority. You know it's a good thing now. I think it's a good thing and the rabbi isn't with direct line to God. The rabbi is a teacher and a member of the community so there isn't a sense of of infallibility or of kind of being closer to God than anybody else I love So that's you know when we we tend to be an argumentative argument to people and it's not a dog. Matic religion by enlarge. It's much more about what you do then kind of signing onto a creed and so by and large. There's a lot of room to move in that. But I grew up in a an arm of Judaism which has changed since but then wasn't ordaining. Lgbt folks that piece became a real real faultline for me. And I did grow up with not anything that anybody said. But we're not seeing anybody who looked like me and having an old you know commentary that was on our in our pews at the synagogue which spoke about that chapter in Leviticus and same sex relationships as being. I don't remember what the language was whether it's something around depravity and paganism in that kind of thing so that I remember but it wasn't the overall messaging you said something about spirituality and religion and I think a lot of people feel spiritual but don't necessarily want to belong to a religion that's more organized or more conservative more conservative. I understand but I sometimes worry that we sell ourselves short by not looking because I think when we look were sometimes surprised by what we find you know and the fact is organized religion and institutions as much as they are like dirty. Words can do things that you can't do when you're just meeting in somebody's living room right. We can create sacred space. We can organize community together. We can be there for each other and offer things in different ways that you can't if it's more do it yourself you know and I figure religions have been asking spiritual questions for Millennia so to be able to come in and be part of that conversation right instead of feeling like you have to start from zero and make it up from you as you go along. I think is really powerful.

When do you think the Innovation Gurus must be running out of ideas and other one comes along. That's enough to make you shake your head and wonder who approve this. Such is the case with a new line of flavored spirits from the folks at Pickering's Gin in Edinburgh. The craziest of these new drinks will make you either head right to the liquor store or or hold your nose. Brussels sprouts flavored Jen. Yep you heard me right. Pickering's has made a gin based on what am I favored veggies. The Brussels flavored Jin is for the holiday season and we'll be sold in six packs of clear Christmas ornaments. According to the industry publication food dive each ornament it will hold about a shot of gin once you down it. You can hang that ornament on your tree or not pickering's was appropriately self deprecating almost almost sheepish in this statement released about the new spirit we know it sounds bonkers they said but the humbled sprout delivers a pleasantly sweet slightly. Nettie Jen Perfect for mixing they posted on their website but if the idea of mixing gin with the trendiest of cruciferous veggies just isn't your cup of tea well pickering's knows that to they'll also offer jenn spiked with cranberry spiced pear and cinnamon and plumbing ginger all in ornaments of course beyond the fact that the weirdness was enough to catch the eye of many editors face it we laughed what's up all the concept is part of a trend by Jean makers just to add plant-based flavors to their concoctions in an effort to persuade non gin drinkers that the juniper spirit is worth their while and you know it's. Working Fortune magazine reports that worldwide Jin sales rose eight percent from twenty seventeen to last year as people sipped on varieties tinted with rose citrus citrus grapefruit even rhubarb and Basil Not Kidding inspiring these editions the intensely crowded Jin Space. It's hard to stand out when the number of finalists in the best Scottish Jen competition numbers more than sixty companies in almost one hundred twenty Jin's and that doesn't even take into account count Jen's from around the world including the old British giant beefeater that company alone sold almost three million cases of Jin last year so so how does a start up break through the noise with attention getting innovations if you're marcus pickering and Mat Gamel two friends who launched pickering's things in a former dog Kennel and twenty thirteen and followed up by refurbishing an old fire engine to dispense cocktails through its hoses of course they did but Brussel Al- sprouts Brussels sprouts according to one survey by Catcher brand hinds. We don't know why they are the single most hated vegetable in America but pickering's is Scottish. You say while their neighboring Brits put the sprouts at the top of their most detested list to now he was truly yeah. I loved them roasted. Maybe with some garlic in balsamic vinegar or Bacon for the last few years. They've been huge on restaurant menus. That's apparently because like pickering's brings. Restaurateurs also get that yes. There are a lot of haters out there but the people who love Brussel sprouts are passionate about these little tiny cabbages this Christmas Christmas pickering's will discover who loves who hates and how many of these Christmas ornaments they'll be able to in low cell.

The case has been under investigation for years last week. Federal judge finally handed star Kist a one one hundred million dollar fine for its actions one hundred million dollars. The maximum penalty allowed by law. The fine was a disappointment to star Kist which should complain to financial hardship and asked to pay only fifty million but the hardship argument didn't sway. US District Court Judge Edward Chen who said in effect sorry sorry Charlie. It's possible that greed was the motivation for the price fixing scheme but desperation may have also played a row remember when tuna sandwiches were almost as popular populars. PB and J. in school lunches will not so much anymore. Over the three decades that ended in twenty-six tuna sales declined by almost forty percent according to the Wall Street Journal title the paper reports that millennials are turning away from processed foods in droves last year star Kist Marketing and Innovation Executive told the journal a lot of millennials. Don't don't even own can openers with no can openers and millennials kitchen doors both star-kist the industry leader and Bumblebee are struggling Bumblebee which earlier paid twenty five million dollars in fines is reported to be considering bankruptcy. Both companies were allowed to pay their penalties interest free over five years but star. Kist which is a subsidiary of a Korean company called Dongwon group has also warned that it may lay off some of its twenty six hundred employees. It's also weighing whether to move a plant from American Samoa to Thailand Star. Kist says the investigation is now officially over but it is hardly the end of high profile price-fixing vice fixing investigations in the food business in July. The Department of Justice launched a criminal investigation into alleged price-fixing in the chicken industry. It is investigating instigating whether poultry giant Tyson foods and pilgrim's pride among others colluded to keep those prices artificially high if the allegations turn out to be true you the chicken industry doesn't have its tuna compatriots possible reasons for pushing prices higher chickens after all aren't processed food and so the poultry poultry providers can't blame their problems on the dearth of can openers and millennials kitchens.

I don't know about where you are but it's still awfully hot down here. In Austin the kind of heat that's best treated with the day the movies or a nice cool dip in the swimming pool boy. Does that sound good. The problem is most of us. Don't have swimming pools and most public pools get drained after Labor Day. So finding a spot to swim hasn't been the easiest task ask until recently when a startup named swiftly decided to take the airbnb approached pools using the swiftly APP. If you have a pool in your backyard and you want to make a little extra money you can offer strangers the opportunity to rent it out by the hour for feet considerate the sharing economy underwater order in a good way since I'm actively looking for weekend swim spot I thought at tested out went to the website plugged in my city Austin Texas and chose the same day hey to see what I could find. At the last minute.

The Country Club looked pretty stark and that hundred dollar an hour pool looked clean and peaceful but all this begs the question. Do you trust swimming in a stranger's pool. How clean is it and who else might be there the CO founders twenty-two-year-old CEO Benhamlat skin and his business partner Asher Weinberger say they thought of that they contract with local pool maintenance companies to make sure you won't find anything Hickey in your rented pool as for Privacy in the New Yorker writer Bruce Handy reported that simply tries to ensure that is well L. for instance handy says owners are supposed to keep their window shades down no spying allowed but when handy made a test visit in Long Island the owner was laws peering out the window.

PBA DOT com slash B W daily they uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday September twelfth. You know that Ole joke someone goes to a Cadillac Shin raises her hand to scratch your nose and all of a sudden she finds she's bid on and won a cow. That actually happened to my producer years ago. Although luckily she didn't have to take it home well think about that while you think about this. Amazon is testing out a system that would allow you to well will raise your hand to pay for stuff at the checkout counter instead of Swiping your credit card or waving your phone at a scanner you just hold up your hand nearest scanner without actually truly touching it. No you might not buy a cow by mistake but I can imagine a few things that could go wrong but let's get serious for a second the system. Amazon John is experimenting with his code named Orville. Maybe after one of the Wright brothers who knows according to popular mechanics hand geometry was first patented in Nineteen eighty-five five making it ancient by high tech innovation standards the F. B. I. Says Hand Geometry has been widely used for things like employee attendance and access excess to protected places from the residential village at the nineteen ninety six summer Olympics to Walt Disneyworld to create a profile you lay your hand down on on a flat surface and a camera captures several photos of your hand and the shadows it casts the system then analyzes thirty one thousand data points and ninety measurements and translates them into a new Miracle Algorithm and while Ah an in-depth geometric hand profile this biometric technology technology is currently accurate to within one ten thousand of one percent but that's not good enough for Amazon which is trying to tune it up and make it accurate for it to within a millionth of one percent. Amazon is hoping to Roll Orville out at whole foods within months to use it an Amazon prime customer would create a hand profile and link it to their Amazon account once that's done to check out. You'd hold up your hand to a special scanner. Checking out would take only three three hundred milliseconds. Give or take a millisecond. If you're truly time starved you'll appreciate the dramatic improvement. A typical checkout now takes a full three to four seconds. According to the New York Post right now. Amazon workers are testing out old Orville by hand scanning snacks from a handful of vending machines in Amazon's John's New York offices why use hand geometry rather than say facial recognition concerns over surveillance make most consumers rather rather wary of being tracked that way but Amazon may be banking on the notion that we've gotten so used to using our fingerprints to unlock our phones or access APPs. We won't worry about sharing our hand. Profiles still a privacy expert interviewed by The New York Post warned that if someone hacks stores system they they could steal the stored hand profiles solving that identity theft problem would be an even greater nightmare than the ones. We're already familiar with. She said dead according to an email newsletter called the Hustle Amazon is far from the only tech company interested in using our physical bodies to make shopping easier this week apple patented a watch strap that can identify US via the skin on our wrists and use that skin data to speed up the checkout process as the hustled says it's all part of a plan to take all of the friction out of paying for things the easier and faster it is to check out of a store. The less we feel the pain of paying they tell us and when we don't feel the pain of paying you guessed it we spend more money. I'm wondering this business daily would pay raise your hands. Would you use your hand to check out a whole foods or any other store. Why or why not tweet at business we'd love to hear from. I'm David Brown back back with you tomorrow.

The Amazon is he's burning as we now know in late August aerial photographs showing Sao Paulo plunged into darkness in the middle of the day stunned the world that day turn night eclipse lips was a mystery at first but soon it became clear that the cause was some eighty thousand fires burning thousands of miles away in the Amazon rainforest the F. Corporation the multibillion dollar owner of Timberland vans shoes and the north face does not want any part of it late last month it announced that it will stop buying vying Brazilian leather. It won't start again the company said until quote we have the confidence and assurance that the materials used in our products do not contribute due to environmental harm in the country so what does footwear have to do with fires well. The fires on the edges of the Amazon are result of deforestation the station in drought loggers farmers and ranchers cut down trees often illegally they also set fires to clear vast swaths of ranchland mostly to fulfill the world's growing demand for beef. There are fires in the Amazon every year but the number of blazes this year is up about eighty percent over last year according to CNN the news outlet reports that the growth in the blazes is purposeful a result of pro beef industry policies promoted by Brazil's president gyroscope scenario Brazil is the world's largest exporter of beef Bolsonaro says he is not to blame the Amazon rainforest plays a huge role in mitigating climate change. The area is so enormous that unharmed it produces about twenty percent of the world's oxygen BEF Corp says it makes about five hundred million products a year making it one of the largest users of raw all materials in its industry in its effort to improve the company sustainability. VF Corp has been overhauling its supply chain by twenty twenty one. The company claims it will reduce the environmental impact of its raw materials by thirty five percent. Now one of those materials is leather Timberland. You know the Conic Yellow Boot Company is. VF's largest leather user leather is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. That's because of land-use changes like clearing parts parts of the rainforest. It's also do the copious amounts of methane made by the cattle themselves v F says fifteen percent of its greenhouse gas emissions come from leather weather. It's largest contributors cotton at more than forty percent given its public commitment to cleaning up the supply chain. It's response to the Amazon fires. This makes sense. One of Timberland's biggest rivals is doc Martin maker of the iconic Black boot. The British brand earned revenues news of about three hundred fifty million pounds last year up twenty percent from the year before the much smaller brand has made no public supply chain commitment similar to those of the F. Corp but like the F. It belongs to a consortium called the leather working group which sources materials from tanneries that attempt to reduce the environmental impact of leather processing icing on its own the corpse decision isn't likely to have much effect on Brazil's commitment to fighting fires in the Amazon but often where one company goes rose so go others and when they do together they have an impact so to do shoppers who as we pointed out here more and more lately are increasingly concerned about where their products come from and what effects they may be causing.

It's time to think about buying your ski pass. That's because the ski industry he has been consolidating over the last few years. Colorado giants Vail Resorts and Altarum Mountain Company has been doing two things each has been buying up resorts across the country country and abroad and they've been creating huge season pass programs the give pass holders access to the mountains they own as well as to partner resorts all over the globe globe as the two fierce rivals focus on selling more and more season passes daily lift ticket prices get ever more jaw-dropping last season season daily passes to vail or beaver creek another high end. Colorado resort broke two hundred dollars for the first time making those to Vail owned resorts the most expensive in the US. That's a hefty fee especially. If you want to bring the kids why so pricey will impart the strategies to force you to make the comparison and determined that a pass is far more economical than buying daily lift tickets why spend two hundred nine dollars to ski for a Single Day at Vale when you could good spent about a thousand dollars to ski all winter whether you're in Vermont or Utah even Japan for people who are sure they want to ski at least a few days this it's winter a pass from one company or the other can save you a bunch of money. Veils epoch pass is good at sixty nine different resorts the icon which Altera Tehrik created just last year will get you into forty one resorts from Colorado steamboat to the icons newest European Destination Zermatt in Switzerland. It's not easy to give a head to head comparison on prices because the potential combinations are dizzying. Do you want ski in only one state while there's a price for that. I want unlimited skiing including over holidays everywhere. That's different current prices unveils season passes range from about four hundred dollars for local resorts to nine hundred sixty nine dollars to ski anywhere including new resorts in Japan and Australia. Alturas cost around five hundred dollars for local resort pass say Colorado's winter park to just over a thousand bucks for access to all forty. One destinations and there are discounts for veterans teran's in children and for people who can skip the most popular holiday times. If you're shopping get actress spreadsheets depending on how much you ski either pass could save you megabucks compared to a single day lift ticket but you knew this was coming. There's a catch to get these discounts. You have to be a planner owner low prices and before Thanksgiving that's because a few years ago the rivals parent companies realized it would be smart to book revenue while Violets still warm out there rather than waiting for unpredictable Mother Nature to deliver customers early season pass revenue wooden just smooth out the bumpy nature of the ski a business it would give each company predictable revenue stream and for Vail boost share prices just like subscription businesses everywhere of course if you're an individualist. They're still bumper stickers on old vehicles in the Colorado rockies that say F- Vale you can still find an independent independent mountain or to those family mountains whether in Colorado or any other mountain state or often more down to earth not to mention cheaper than the glitzy resorts.

I'm David Brown and this is business awards daily on this Monday September ninth while you probably heard the headlines Walmart will no longer sell handgun ammunition in announced the change one month after twenty two people were shot and killed in a Walmart store in El Paso Texas. You'll also stop selling certain kinds of ammunition intended for hunting rifles but which can be used so-called assault style rifles as well. USA Today reported Walmart Mart currently sells about twenty percent of all ammunition sold in the US these actions it says will reduce that percentage to somewhere between six and nine percent. Walmart sells far fewer handguns ammunition. Currently the chain sells handguns only in Alaska. Those sales will end as well. The company stopped selling selling assault style rifles in two thousand fifteen and raise the age of all gun buyers to twenty one last year following the mass shooting in Parkland Florida in a memo to employees posted the Walmart website last Tuesday. CEO Doug McMillan said that he was moved to action by the El Paso shooting but also by numerous other events just in the past month alone own a few days before to employees were fatally shot by another employee in a Walmart in South Haven Mississippi since El Paso there urban mass shootings in Dayton Ohio and Midland and Odessa Texas all of which CEO McMillan referenced in his memo Social Media Lit up with calls for Walmart to get out of the firearms business immediately. After the passer shooting Walmart employees organized a walkout protesting Walmart's business and an employee led change dot org petition calling for Walmart restrict firearm sales and and both open and concealed carry in its stores received one hundred forty thousand signatures the Washington and Post reported Walmart is now asking customers not to carry guns into both Walmart and Sam's clubs in the twenty two states that have open carry laws in the memo. McMillan says it's doing so because workers and customers have been frightened by quoting here multiple incidents since El Paso where individuals attempting to make a statement and test are responsive responsive entered our stores carrying weapons close quote. He added that some customers carrying lawfully unintentionally created situations where employees call all law enforcement and evacuated stores by asking customers not to carry openly. Walmart is hoping to avoid future incidents. McMillan said the chain will continue to to allow people with permits to carry concealed weapons where concealed carry is lawful. Walmart said it will sell out its current inventory of ammunition. It didn't specify the size is or value of that inventory nor long expects to take before it runs out the chain is attempting to balance the new policies while still serving hunters and other sportsmen and keeping gun rights advocates in mind it will continue to sell long barrel deer rifles and shotguns along with hunting apparel and accessories gun control and gun rights advocates advocates reacted predictably with gun control activists welcoming these moves by the country's largest retail chain and pressuring Walmart to go further on the other hand the the NRA called Walmart's policy changes quote shameful still CEO Doug Macmillan wrote to the White House and Congress advocating for stronger background checks he called on Congress to renew debates on the assault weapons ban stopping short of endorsing the ban outright hours after Walmart made its announcement cement kroger the country's largest grocer also announced it would ask customers not to carry openly in its doors. The supermarket chain ended gun and ammunition sales in the months following the Parkland shooting. Walmart's biggest brick and mortar competitor target has been called the quote Liberal Walmart mostly for its stance on guns runs. It doesn't sell firearms or ammunition. In the early nineteen nineties it stopped selling toy guns designed to look like the real thing and it asked customers not to carry firearms arms into its stores five years ago in twenty fourteen. CEO McMillan says Walmart serves more than sixty percent of America's consumers in any given month month have given Walmart's pervasiveness. It's new gun. Policies may cause real change in part by spurring other companies like Kroger to follow its lead. One thing is for sure. These moves are certain to inspire even more intense debates between gun control and gun rights advocates. Hello from one this business Wednesday.

And and that kind of was just like, I think I just had enough things kind tweak my brain where I was like, oh, I know what I wanna do. And I and going to try to do this. And and once I started getting a little it wasn't always good. I was you know, my early twenties. I wasn't like a great person. I didn't know I was doing.

And then we see the group of disabled adults in their caretakers kind of pull up to the park as well. And the way that the caretakers spoke to them and treated them was very dismissive, and very cruel and treat them all. I guess they were prisoners and then people to be looked after.

Much all of this seeming that the banking landscapes days approximately as it is the big elephant in the room which is always looming over the space as we've kind of alluded to ready is the tech giant's. So what happens if gaffer and the other giants come out to play in the banking space could completely change the state of play on the banking failed. What do you think? I think pretty much I think we could be in a situation where actually one of those those major players can can either via absolute brute force or bias. Stealth really sort of get into this market. We see so many different statistics coming out about various different places that Apple Pay or being accepted all use only a couple of weeks ago being in New York, seeing alipay accepted in the back of every taxi that was out there, you know.

Also have a an only of people touchy managed that regulatory problems for them. But I think Salang as they can. I think those are the wreck space.

They need to hold against it when they can just take away very, very profitable bits of the banking sector which said that doing already, let's be US tech companies.
