"East and the other one towards the west. They flew around the world and they both met above the site of delfi when zeus all where they met he said. Okay this is the center of the earth so he took these giant stone and throw it there and from that point they say that the naval of the world was created and that was the site of delfi. Now there was an oracle there. Yes so how did that. How did the gods speak to the people at delfi. The story says that the people at that time which is around eight of years before the birth of christ they started seeing their goats going up on the cliffs and then hoping very happy very enthusiastic so the goat started hopping after visiting delfi yup and they followed them and they realized that they were inhaling. This vapes so vapor is coming out of the world out of the earth like a crack in the ground. There's a crack in the ground. And the ideology of managed to discover with geologists the managed to discover rox with signs of specific chemical contents of fumes. That will come okay so they realized that there was something magical. Competent back then signs was not as developed as it is now that they believe that this was a divine sign so everybody is believing. The gods are speaking to the people through a crack in the earth in delfi up in the mountains north west of athens and then how did the people who were in power capitalize on that to take advantage of that delfi became the most important placing the ancient world. Everybody all the kingdoms they would go there in order to find out. They should go to war if they should do. Big public works whatever. They had to decide if they felt. It was a very important decision. They would go there and nas the oracle for advice. So it's going into this mysterious temple and you've got priestesses and robes and crazy things and they really think this is the the oz on earth there would be these young girls that were inside special rooms underneath the temple of apollo and they would inhale vapes and starts talking in a way that no one would understand so they had priest that would decipher. We got to decipher as he wanted to today as a tourist. What do we see in delfi. Philippos see the ruins of the temple of apollo was the treasurer of the athenians. Which is building that the erected in order to commemorate because they took a lot of money. I suppose what's on the to the horse. Yeah so every city stayed with covid tone treasury the athenian you walk up to the temples and the theater and race course and so on and you pass all these temples that were treasuries collecting all that money. it's a fascinating place to check out one of the best sites from ancient greece.

Dolly Parton learned she funded the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine

"Since dawn was just talking about it in the dirt alert, talking about Dolly and the possibility of her posing for Playboy meaning being on the cover. Remember when I was saying how early on in the Corona virus? Ah, lot of celebrities and a lot of people were like putting money towards research. Yes, well, Dolly was one of those people She donated $1 million. And apparently that helped to fund the Moderna vaccine. Yeah, you call this the other day? I just thought well. At least they know their money is going to actually accomplishing something. And who knows without all of those donations if they wouldn't have the funding To just really, really, really work so hard and find something in less than a year. That's amazing. She was on the Today show yesterday, and she was asked about it, and I believe we have a clip. Yeah, That's what I understand. This morning. I haven't read up enough. They told me that just four went on the air. Then they may be asking me about that. So I'm just happy that anything I do can help somebody else and we're not donated the money to the covert fund. I just wanted it to do good, and evidently it is. Let's just find a cure real soon. Oh, don't you just

Young protesters in Thailand risk much to demand change from military, monarchy

"Escalated in thailand. This week we're called to reform the monarchy are getting louder this morning. Police blocked rush hour traffic to stop demonstrators. They said from breaking the law out. This isn't the first time this year there have been protests against king maha vajiralongkorn who took the throne for years ago. He's one of the richest royals in the world and a playboy. He's churned through four wives and spends the majority of his time living in a german hotel amid lots of women in the past few years he's taken steps to consolidate power leading mostly younger student campaigners to demand the monarchy become more accountable and transparent yet eating suggesting these reforms comes with a hefty price. Thailand has one of the strictest lese majeste laws in the world criticizing. The royal family is punishable by up to fifteen years in jail yet. It's a law that people are increasingly willing to break yesterday evening. After left the protest side there was a pipe. Bomb in the protests in front of parliament happens that we could go also that were six protesters being treated for gunshot wounds. A man was arrested. So it's a very unstable situation. Tom felix young writes about thailand for the economist and is based in bangkok. At the same time. One has to see that the students are in a different position because many of them are the kids off the bangkok establishment. So the hope here some say is that you don't go around killing your own children what do you mean how is the makeup of these protests. Now different the biggest difference. Is that the kids on the streets. Some of the math fifteen there are university students as well but they are incredibly young. And if you were looking for a sentence to describe what's going on out there they are fearless. Fear is gone. And i say that because the legs majeste laurels the roy. Defamation in this country. I'd incredibly harsh. And they have been applied in the past so every time kids go out there and demonstrates some of them seeking out of the house of their parents they are committing a criminal offence and they are risking ending up in jail and yet no one really seems to care so what you see now when you go and went to observe protests yesterday is all sorts of tones and abused director directly at the head of state which is something that has happened in the past but not in the way that it is now. And why is this upsurge of animosity against the head of state king. So his father passed away in two thousand sixteen and since he seems to the throne taken a lot of steps to concentrate power in his hands. So there's been a shift from watts once looked as a relatively normal constitutional monarchy to more absolutes attack monarchy. The has changed the crown property bureau law which essentially said previously that these assets are being held in trust for the people for the nation and now with this law changed. The king has direct control over these acids and they actually if you look at shares in companies. It's no longer. The crown property bureau owning is the name of the king the students and many people who sympathize with them on our asking. Well what is his old about these assets odds and we want to see a reversal. What is it that the protesters are demanding here so the three months initially many months ago that they wanted to change the constitution basically a more democratic thailand. The second one they wanted to give it to speak to freely and not face arrests and the third one which is by far the most controversial is a reform of the monarchy now in recent months more and more the last demand has become the most prominent to the extent that even neutral observers here referred to these protests no longer as pro-democracy protests but anti monarchy protests and what likelihood that what the protesters are demanding will actually be met. I mean what chances for actual a change to the monarchy. Well if you look at the original three demands the one of the demands was that they wanted essentially to express themselves freely without landing in jail. Now we use the opposite. Now you see a hardening of stance on the part of the establishment on that from the students are not getting anywhere. The second part is that that was a whole unto last week that the constitution might be mended and made more progressive. That door now seems closed because the crew military royalist government coalition government. They have a majority in parliament. One proposed in particular which mirrored of the demands of the students was voted down so there is no way now through the parliamentary process to bring about change and on the third demand. It is pretty clear now that this heading for a confrontation and everybody knew that because the way that paolo is acquired exercised and hells in. Thailand is dri up for debate. You say this is heading for a confrontation but it sounds as if the confrontation kind of already here. The students don't have any recourse left either in the protesting over real constitutional reform. So where do you see this going. One thing that is really worrying is that it's all it is perceived to be now this one dimensional quest for essentially getting rid of the monarchy in its current state or modernizing whatever it is but all the other things the original demands and are now in the background and what that means for the students i think is that they will find it very difficult to build a broader alliances entice society that will allow them to carry on with this hand. I do not see any fundamental change happening in the near future

Thanks-myth-ing

"Most without equal for this recipe you will need one each skylark thrush quayle ortolan lapping. Golden plover partridge woodcock. -til guinea hen guinea fowl. Wild duck red pheasant. Wild goose boostered and fake pecker pluck and got the birds then stuff the smallest bird into the next smallest birds cavity and so on until you have one neutron star of bird meet paraphrased from seventeenth century cookbook and you thought her duck in was a new thing. My name's moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Two days after this episode drops. It is thanksgiving in the united states and the supporters at patriot. Dot com slash. Your brain on facts voted to go. Turkey talk today. So let's go through the myths and misconceptions by working our way through a painting an odd choice as this is an audio only medium. Certainly luckily we don't have to pick just one painting. Most paintings depicting the first thanksgiving in giant air quotes of sixteen twenty. One contain the same things about of puritan settlers dressed in austere black clothing. With bright metal buckles gathered around a table laden with food. Maybe the family patriarch is offering a prayer and a small group of native americans can be seen in the background. Maybe one or two in the foreground. If i were to show you jennie. Augusta browns combs. The first thanksgiving or the first thanksgiving by louise jerome farris painted within a year of each other in the early twentieth century. Incidentally you'd say oh. Yeah that was in my history book which year all of them probably. That's how we've been taught to think of historical thanksgiving's but we're not school kids anymore. So it's time to update that image paintings of the first thanksgiving referred to that feast in sixteen twenty one in plymouth massachusetts. What we actually know about the feast. Concretely is very limited. It mostly comes from a single letter. Written by a communist named edward winslow two hundred and twenty years later in eighteen forty one. His letter was published in chronicles. Of the pilgrim fathers by boston writer and publisher alexander young and it was young. Who called the gathering. The first thanksgiving even though the word thanksgiving doesn't appear anywhere in winslow's letter that feast wouldn't have been thanksgiving to the pilgrims. Puritans did observe thanksgiving days after fortunate events like a good harvest. The were religious observances. People spent the day in church often in silent prayer and they fasted rather than feasted. It's almost the polar opposite of the way we celebrate thanksgiving today. So that day wasn't thanksgiving and it wasn't even the first for a few reasons for starters. It didn't happen a second time. Let alone annually. So it can hardly be said to be the first of anything it would take more than two hundred years for an autumn. Feast referred to as thanksgiving too widely proliferate second. It wasn't the first meal shared by europeans and native americans in the new world. A reasonable drive from my home here in. Virginia is the berkeley plantation where a thanksgiving feast was held this one by the europeans alone. Three dozen settlers arrived in the chesapeake bay in sixteen nineteen on a ship. Captain by a man who had survived the winter of sixteen o nine in the jamestown colony a winter referred to as the starving time after a rough two and a half months at sea and another week on inland waterways. They finally arrived at berkeley hundred later called berkeley plantation on december fourth. They disembarked assembled a meal. From what shifts rations. They still had ham and wasters probably and said prayers of thanksgiving. It was declared that their arrival must be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to almighty god end so it was for two whole years in march of sixteen twenty two. The poyton having noticed that the settlers weren't leaving and in fact were expanding their territory and kept trying to convert and civilize them attacked berkeley and other settlements killing over three hundred fair playboys if you ask historians in maine they'll tell you the first. Such meal happened not in sixteen twenty one in massachusetts but in sixteen. O seven in papa main. The popham colony barely lasted a year. Thanks to a fire in their storehouse during the particularly harsh winter and miscalculations like staying in a four right on the shore rather than moving inland where the forest could provide a windbreak.

Perez Hilton Confesses He Hooked Up With John Mayer

"After years of slamming celebrities, Perez Hilton says he has some serious regrets, but he's also up a ton of new trouble. No surprise in his new memoir my life and scandal says he regrets hurting so many people with his website but that's not stopping him from making new planes about celebrities according to page six who got an early look at the book Peres writes about his on and off friendship with Lady Gaga he accuses her of using him to get back at her caters. He says God I didn't ask him to write nasty things about people but quote by moaning to me she made me feel like, i. her best friend. Should do something about it. He also says they stopped talking after an interview he did with her in two thousand eleven and eventually Gago called him a creepy stalker. It's good. All right and that is not all Peres also talks about hooking up with John Mayer in a tooth out in in in two thousand seven in a club. So that was for you years. Later, John did. Admit to kissing Peres during an interview with playboy, we reached out to John and dog for comment but have not heard that that was a lot to unpack you lots of reading. Let me ask you this.

The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks

"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.

Getting into security architecture: Careers, skills and ransomware

"I Wanted to talk to you today about because you know cyber work. The big push here is helping people to get started in cybersecurity and who don't necessarily know where to start or don't know what the next steps are in their career. So for listeners who might think you're fresh out of college I WANNA point out that you've been working insecurity for some time between undergraduate studies in recent master's degree. So I guess what I wanted to know, what are you? What were you specifically trying to achieve getting your? Computer Science from Michigan State you know before returning back to the business. sector. So there's a strong strong analytical competent. That is an integral part of any doctoral degree I began my PhD with the objective of owning my critical thinking skills and exploring the truth death of certain areas insecurity because as we know. So we will looked at the ten domains, of CIS SPN that's it. It's everywhere from physical security to cryptography and everything in between your network and I was doing that for for a long time and. It came to a point where I wanted to really truly understand something in depth to the point where you know I could get a PhD in in that area. So so that that that was definitely a motivation motivating factor for me going in. Do you have a sense of how you know the the addition of a PhD like this has has changed job prospects I mean obviously you're using Motorola but like like what what sort of doors does does a graduate level degree like this open for Cybersecurity I personal? Right, so that's a great. in terms of career prospects, it definitely opens up more research opportunities both in academia and industry. Right. Some research opportunities and industry will explicitly ask for a PhD So so it definitely opens those doors talking about industry in particular There are. There are few opposite like I said, there is a few doors that opened up right away. I could have definitely been. I could have definitely been a security architect without getting a PhD but the benefit is more intangible in that. There's elements of my PhD that prepared me for my role today. And allowed a smooth transition. into security architecture all as. You know. Because I play the role of. A playboy tactical and strategist role during my During my work as a security architect and especially the strategic part of the PSG definitely helps them. Okay. So you you mentioned that this is a pre specifically useful thing if you're going to go into a research capacity, is this something that you're looking to pursue as well? Are you looking to because I? Believe you're your emphasis was on ransomware are you are you doing sort of ransomware SORTA research level study of things ransomware right now? Yeah definitely that's a competent of my work and even at Motorola solutions on preparing I'm pursuing them up and so for example, if you know one thing that comes to mind that a PhD would directly help you in in an industry is like if you contributing to. If. You're if you're making if you're. Generating Patent applications that process is very similar to writing for Scientific Journal. So that's something that comes to mind right away that helps me aware PhD helps me in In the industry. Okay. So when we spoke earlier and I just mentioned it just now you said that that ransomware is probably the main focus of your study I believe. So could you tell me a little bit about what you learned about ransomware in this academic context and you know how deeply gone into this topic and what was your specialized area within ransomware? There's a certain aspect of it that really sort of attracted you. So speaking in the. Context is a lot of new things I learned One of them is actually funny. YOU SPEAK OF ACADEMY CONTEXT IN IN ONE thousand nine hundred thousand academy paper. Out in Tripoli Conference where which talked about where where the authors young young talked about crypto viruses that will deploy cryptographic libraries on on hose to perform unauthorized encryption and demand a ransom. In order to provide you with the decryption key. So they predicted the whole thing, one, thousand six, and this wasn't a ransomware in really start to grow around untold to five thousand six as when it started to. Grow. But so so that's always interesting is when when a academy predict some of these things I hadn't time. Reading about it in the academy context, I, notice that there's papers that have done studies on on large samples of ransomware discovered, for example, that ninety two percent of them are not affected right? Because cryptography is hard and and cybercriminals make mistakes all the time and a lot of the times they're scare where where they lock your screen expect you to pay the. Money when they haven't really done any encryption in the background So if you take away all of that fluff, then the h percent are the truly troubling ones and so there's a lot of noise in the cybercrime underground and you know we we get this. We get into this mode of thinking that Cybercriminals have descended from the heavens in terms of their. Skills but but that's not true. You know they make a lot of mistakes

Kanye West posts bizarre Twitter rant: ‘Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up’

"So Connie went on twitter tirade last night. Saying things like Chris. Stay away from his kids. He slammed Kim's playboy spread and he even said the movie. Get out is about him. Yeltsin claims that Kim was going to fly out to Wyoming with the doctor to get him locked up, so it sounds like Kim is trying to get him help, but these tweets which our now deleted did get pretty personal. How do you guys feel if you can? I mean how are you supposed to feel this entire thing is so devastating. I feel like this has been something that's been going on with Connie for a while now. Obviously, he's been pretty open about his mental illness, and the struggles that he's had with it in the past. It is very clear that he's obviously going through something. Obviously, we don't know if that means he's you know. Stop taking certain medications or whatever has gone on. On, but clearly he's in a little bit more of a manic state. I'm not a doctor so I. Don't know if that's the right terminology, but clearly clearly going there's something and as his wife and partner for so many years mother of his children. I mean I'm sure it's devastating for her I. Mean I know firsthand what it's like to deal with somebody who has mental illness and let me tell you something it is horrific. Horrific you are not dealing with a person that is a the right sound mind, so it's almost impossible to help them, and they feel like everybody is sort of attacking them in what he was tweeting about being locked up. It's like she's not trying to lock you up. She's trying to help you and get you WANNA. Pass right now to get you to your most Sane Self, so I'm sure it's dead the skating for her. What do you think? I mean if you haven't dealt with someone who has gone through mental illness, especially member. You really do not know the distance that you are willing to go for that person you know people ask questions like when is enough enough? But when this is your family member, you have go the distance and for people are forever, and when people are going through manic episodes. Is sometimes they will say things that will cut deep. They will say things that will hurt their actions Are you know pretty irrational at times when you have family members? Sometimes you just have to take a step outside of the situation and assess what's going, and sometimes you're able to realize okay. They were in the right state of mind. They were saying things that maybe they do not mean and and you're. You're willing to just ride it out with them for him. This is the father of her children. This is her husband who we know adores her, so I feel like she is going to do whatever it takes to help him and to get him better, but you guys. There is no simple solution. There is not sanction. This is a lifelong journey, so I think right now. The whole family is going through it. But also with Kim, you know she has to assess how she is feeling. Because as you are not well, then you're trying to fill someone else's cost. That is half. Empty your nothing for yourself so it also it just falls on. You know you need to assess how you are. You need to help this person, but it's going to be a journey. Be. A mother continued to be a mother to the four children. She also has to be both mom and dad right now, and I think that a lot of I mean I've gone through this personally, but you know like people with mental illness have a hard time taking medication because they do complain that it causes them to feel jake or less, creative or sort of a little bit foggy, and I think that obviously we know I've been a huge conde. Conde stand from day one. He's obviously a musical genius, and he's somebody that constantly wants to be in the zone wants to be creating wants to be putting out certain things and when he's taking stuff that makes him feel like he's not living up to that. Potential I can understand him saying well. I don't want to do that to myself anymore. But unfortunately what we saw last night with the tweeting is the effects of not taking care of himself right? Right one hundred percent I think if you look at the history of the Kardashian women and their relationships. If you look at chloe and Lamar if you look at Scott in Courtney. Even when those relationships were romantically done, they never gave up on those people we saw how chloe came to Lamar's rescue, and how Chris was behind her, and how the sisters were behind her to help Lamar get out of the spot. He's at so being someone like Kim. WHO's? WHO's a part of a family like that? WHO believes that wind? She has kids or this man. She is not going to give up on him even if she's out of this situation for herself, she is going to stay in this for kids and I. Think the most devastating part for Cam, which is also the most devastating part for me. Is that people on the Internet are egging this on and laugh about this man going through this manic episode? Nine might be saying things that cut deep and are very personal, but I think she can get over that. I think what's going to her. Is that people are sitting here in laughing at this man going through this, and that is going to be the problem,

Bored? Games!

"A lot of playing board games these days and that's pretty fitting human making board games for a long time like a long longtime seven thousand years or more for a bit of historical context. We stopped hunter-gathering and settled down to be farmers about ten thousand years ago rather than try to cram seven thousand years in six occupied continents worth of history into a half hour podcast. I'll hit some of the high points. Especially the less well-known once the earliest gaming pieces ever found are forty nine. Small carved painted stones found a five thousand year old burial mound in southeast Turkey. Similar pieces have been found in Syria and Iraq and seemed to point devoid games originating in the Fertile Crescent. You remember the Fertile Crescent from the first week of world history class. It's the same region discovered alcohol invented papyrus and made calendars all of which you need. If you're hosting game night other early dice games were created by painting a single side of a flat. Stick these sticks would be tossed at once and that would be your role Mesopotamia. Dice were made from a variety of materials including carved knuckle bones would painted stones and turtle shells. No wonder folks used to say roll them bones dice from the Roman era. Looks like the six sided die. We use today though. Some of them had their corners. Cut off to be able to reach a higher number not unlike dungeons and dragons dice. Imagine excavating a distant Roman out host and finding a D twenty serious cricket board games became popular among the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt. And that shouldn't surprise. That board games were a bigger part of life for upper class people since they have both money for entertainment and time to play. Even before the first dynasty Egypt loved a game called Senate. It's even seen on. The walls of tombs and copies of the game are buried with noble people. Ancient Egyptians were strong believers in the concept of fate. And that your luck in the game of Senate meant that you were under the protection of the major gods of the Pantheon raw toe to toe Cyrus. The significance of the game is clear. The game play not as clear. Historians have made educated guesses as to the rules more on that later and Board Game. Companies have used those guesses as a jumping off place to make modern versions. Four Games also became tied into religious beliefs. One such game was Mahan played around three thousand. B C e Mahan was a protective God depicted as a snake with coils around the Sun God raw during his journey through the night the game and the God became intertwined. Tim Kendall and ancient Egyptian historian believes that it's not possible to know for sure with the information we have available whether the game was inspired by an existing deity or the Deity was inspired by the game. Many people think backgammon is the longest plate of all the board games with evidence that it existed around two thousand B C but there is an extant game. That is a little bit older. Relatively speaking the royal game of for the game gets its name from being found in the royal tombs of in Iraq. There was also a set found in Pharaoh. Tutankhamun tune the game. Play is simple but very familiar. You're trying to get all of your pieces around the board first thumping off your opponent's pieces along the way again. Proving there's nothing new under the Sun. The royal game of herb was played with four sided or tetrahedral dice. A D Four for the tabletop games out there. Even though the game's over four thousand years old amazingly we found a copy of the rules Irving Finkel the British museum deciphered cuneiform tablet and discovered. It was the rules for the Royal Game of Earth. He then saw a photograph of a nearly identical board game being played in modern India. That makes the Royal Game of Earth. The longest played game in history and there is a great video of Irving Finkel. Who has ever so pleasantly mad teaching youtuber or Tom Scott how to play Lincoln the show notes and a little clip right here. Because I just couldn't help myself. All sorts of evidence has come to live so that we know how this game was played and we can play it now with a great deal of excitement. Sometimes it brings out violence. Come Times it brings out savagery. I have to say that this so we've decided to bring in a member of the public. I can't remember the name on Tom. Scott I make videos about science technology in the world. Who's never paid this game before? I have never played this game before. I'm Gandhi swift overview of the walls. Hope he masses and I'm getting to play of course play gently at first because I don't say hi to hang I'm to wipe the floor with it wouldn't do it for me even discovered these rules and I'll throw in his mind. Game listing whitlow. Marta is similar to that question of modern. There were some minor differences s today. Each player has fifteen checkers and uses six sided dice to be the first to bear off. All of one's checkers. I confess that I am reading that. From a website verbatim. I know less about that. Yemen do cricket. Backgammon had a renewed surge of popularity in the nineteen sixties which is held longtime for a comeback. Thanks in part to the charisma of Prince Alexis. Obolensky the father of modern backgammon cigarette liquor and car. Companies began to sponsor tournaments and Hugh Hefner held backgammon parties at the Playboy Mansion. At the same time that the Romans were playing Latin backgammon. The Chinese were play. We she or you may have heard of it. Go Que- she may even predate the game of twelve markings and the royal game of Earth. According to legend which has a pesky habit of morphing into history quay g was created by the ancient Chinese. Emperor Yell to teach his son on Ju discipline. Concentration and balance the popularity of wage e grew throughout Eastern Asia especially in Japan. Which is where the name go comes from another ancient game which is still out there and a favourite of nearly every household in my family is the African game of Mangala in our modern parlance. Munkala refers to a specific game. But the name actually belongs to an entire genre of games a genre eight hundred traditional games strong. This family of Board Games is played around. The world is referred to as Sewing Games S. O. W. I N. G. Devotes the way that you pick up and drop the stones playing pieces like you were sowing seeds in the ground. The word Mukalla comes from the Arabic Nicola to move most one college games share a common structure where each player has gained pieces in divots on the board and moves them to capture their opponent's pieces leading them to also be called count and capture games. The boards can be wooden clay even just little holes in the dirt playing pieces of everything from seeds. Stones shells anything near at hand that fits in the holes. The earliest evidence of the game are fragments of pottery. Board found in Eritrea dated to the sixth century CE. Though if the games were played with seeds on wooden boards or pebbles in divots in the dirt the game could be even older. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence after all that particular logical fallacy is called argument from ignorance at ignorant him. And it's not a good look now. We go to the land of ice and snow of the Midnight Sun. Where the hot springs flow Scandinavians played chess. Like game called. Nevin tough at least as early as four hundred see. I'm sure my clever listeners haven't forgotten that. Viking refers to the raids undertaken by a small portion of the population themselves called Viking US meaning kings table noth- Atoll was a war strategy game. The kings objective was to escape to the edge of the board while the opponents laurel objective was to capture him. The attacking force had the natural advantage at the start of each game. Perhaps mimicking a cultural mindset of a small group being victorious against a larger force like say a few boats full of Viking attacks against the army of an English King Scandinavians spread the game to Ireland Britain and Wales through. Let's call it. Unexpected cultural exchange archaeologists have also discovered that it was popular as far to the east as Ukraine.

Mel Magazine co-founder Josh Schollmeyer on how the site's 'never been there to push razors'

"The idea overall behind behind mel. Whether you're a couple things one I always joke that it. It's me we're really working through some shit which is kind of trutv just trying to find my place in a very as you point out fraught world. I think when it started the idea was much more quaint Which was had come from playboy where we did? We did a lot of things on. You know bespoke axes that you could hang in your living room and a lot of consumer the endless conversation. Some of my fellow colleagues would have about Artisanal Gin and it just seemed Frankly it kind of bored me and it felt pretty out of touch and I think you know I come from a very blue collar working class background and I think there was a time with my grandfather and even my dad and uncles. Who looked at that stuff is very aspirational? And I think as time went on aspirations really changed and became more experiential than they did around certain goods also felt that that approach shamed people. You know if you didn't have the right kind of socks that matched your jacket with the right kind of barber. Somehow you were less of a you know well-heeled sophisticated urbanites and so I wanted to do something that I felt would speak much more. Fundamentally to men's lives especially not just with what was going on with social change but the fact that like the whole notion of quote. Unquote adulting and you know. When do we start to grow up and mature and you know as men in particular are faced with a lot of more fundamental things in life things? You never thought you'd worry about around your job your especially given the economic times we've been in the last decade or so. I think mental health is a super important thing I didn't see places like men's health and others really taking mental health as seriously as physical health especially around like sixty seconds to ads. I was much more interested in trying to holistically. Triangulate my need for like my ambition for career my ambition to be a good partner and father and my ambition to be something other than the guy who died at his desk. Or you know a husband or father and somebody who had his own identity and I think that that's a very tough thing to square kind of in any year. I think it's particularly tough now and I just wanted to sort of investigate the thinking the different people that I thought were doing that. An intriguing ways that maybe you could take something from okay so I mean I think everything changed with me too right. Yeah Yeah I WANNA I WANNA get to that but so that was the original idea. And I think what? You're talking about with with esquire and Chiku and a lot of the sort of traditional men's publications I mean a lot of that's business model driven right right. I mean like it's an archetype based on who they could advertise against right so I actually believe that guy never really existed. It was just that they could get style advertises. They could get auto advertisers. They could get liquor advertisers they could get studios so like. I never believed that guy existed. I believe that that guy existed to sell against right so different business model at Mel.

"Of the often controversial Hugh, Hefner. The rumors are true ridiculous historians. We are joined once again, with a friend of the show and host of the history of standup podcast. Wayne Federman friend of the American people, Wayne Federman. Friend to our producer, Casey peck, from Wayne Federman. How're you doing? Wayne. I really would rather be speaking. Casey that guy's incredible. He made shaima in, but you won't be able to hear him because he's not piped into the phone, but we will rela- any words of wisdom that he provides on his behalf is he beaming right now because I'm talking about him is he says he says that he has his face is obscured by a giant computer monitor. So I can't tell you that person his voice in my ear says that he is okay. And he just leaned in and give a big smile fund story before we get started. And this is true story way when we were putting together this episode, Casey, actually asked us to hold and he traveled all the way back from Paris, France to be here today very special trip. It's true. It's all true. Yeah. Let me just say that it's very much on brand for casing. So when we previously spoke together, we looked at the history of what we call stand up today. Not just as the, the craft or the, the actual performance that we think of with somebody standing with the microphone in an audience that hopefully loves them, but not always we also talked about some of the bigger social questions that stand up brings to the forefront. And sometimes those can be uncomfortable questions that people don't typically explore now, the they laugh at too, but sometimes they leave thinking in our earlier conversations leading up to today's episode. Use started telling us about someone that was, I think maybe vaguely familiar to us but somewhere, we weren't super well acquainted with, with, which is the comedian and activist dick, Gregory wing, could you tell us a little bit about. Just for our audience who dick Gregory is, well, dick Gregory is famous in the history of up for one specific thing. And that is, he became the first major and there's a caveat, we can go into it comedian African American comedian to play white nightclubs. And how that happened, we will tell you in a moment. I'm sure but he was just a it was a funny kid. He was an athlete. He went to college. He was in the service, and then he moved from Saint Louis to Chicago to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up comedian and could only play the black clubs in and around Chicago and rears really struggling actually had a day job. He worked at the post office. He washed cars all trying to subsidize this career his and at this point, he's, he's married. He has yet has a lot of responsibility, so leading up to this big moment. We're gonna get into that involves another. Historical luminary and controversial figure dick Gregory was doing his best to get into the kind of Chicago stand up nightclub scene. And as you said, it wasn't a very welcoming scene for people of color, and I wanna play this clip from American masters, on PBS where Gregory, kind of describes this moment where he had to disarm a white audience at a club. I wanna say an Alabama or something like that, where someone calls him a racial slur, and he has to take that opportunity to defuse the situation rather than make a scene. And you know put his career in jeopardy because these were alternately his clients, who he was there to entertain. So I think it's really is a very teachable moment about the kind of climate that he was dealing with. So I go down there, and I'm not thinking of anything, I didn't know what to time that a negro is not permitted to work white nightclub. That's an all American in remember not knowing that I used to. Practice. What do you do? When some white person yell something negative out embarrass you. And so I used to practice with my wife, but it didn't work because us to nice and kind and in one night, I don't know how that this little job, and this little hick town miss your Walker, Indiana, so that you had to say no more. So I'm Michelle walking Danna and. And somebody get that nigger off the stage. Now, I was ready for and everybody just froze as why book. Call me call me a ring. Just hearts me trigger. I'm out of. There's no way you can feel sorry for me or embarrassed and laugh. When I got him back now I'm all together. Welcome to. Thank you. Jesus christ. I wanted to hit him myself, and then the guy walks say sorry. This. Sorry, almost pay. You man. I've been trying to figure out how to get to this, so Wayne, I wanted to know if you thought that maybe this was kind of, if he would have had to deal with similar situations like this leading up to this moment, and he almost describes it as, like an aha moment, where it's like this is how I can deal with this kind of heckling. Right. Well he, I feel like dick, Gregory, especially at that time, had a very high emotional, and comedic IQ on how to handle Krauts, and it's remarkable considering he's not that experienced other than basically playing these black clubs. But I just think he had an innate sense of one how to perform in front of white audiences. And to like, had a diffuse these very volatile situations that I'm sure would come up all the time. Right. Because as as you venture before he was he was working. Let's see his comedic career began in what the. Mid to late nineteen fifties. Is that correct? Yes. Yes. Yes. That's exactly correct. And at that time, there wasn't a lot of, you know, African American comedians on television or on the Sullivan show is just a few and once in a while see somebody, and there really wasn't a, a big circuit to play the big white nightclubs, which we called nightclubs at that time. And, but they wouldn't use African American comedian, once, once in a while, they would but as a rule, that's the, you know, they'd have an act, you know, Sammy Davis could play there or something like that. Or, you know, a team or a singer, Pearl Bailey or something like that, all the time, but not, not a standup. I saw really interesting clip with comedian Paul Mooney who was another very outspoken comic, a contemporary, maybe a little younger than Gregory, but still kind of very much like in the same scene as Richard Pryor, maybe like the next generation, but he talked about how in Hollywood nothing could ever be. The two white, but it was very easy to for something to be two black. And I think that's a really interesting distinction, where like you talk about Sammy Davis juniors performers of that Keller. They were a little more palatable to a white audience, but a comic like Gregory, who wasn't pulling any punches. That would be a little harder to take for these folks. Maybe weren't used to seeing things like that is that would you say that's accurate? Yes Mooney is one hundred percent on like people would go, okay. This is this is too much for. But again, dick, Gregory I think really learned how to thread, the needle almost like in a, a Jackie Robinson kind of way that he was like able to like take white audiences expectations of what a black guy would talk about. And he talked about racial stuff all the time that was the centerpiece of his act, but he did it in a very, non threatening very human way, as opposed to an angry way in that same NPR PBS clip that, we just heard later on talks about that. He. Was always respectful and he wasn't bitter and that he wasn't angry. And this was all I'm sure underneath. But again, I just feel like his emotional IQ was through the roof on how to handle these situations. So it wasn't like Paul Mooney who would not, you know, I can't imagine Paul Mooney handling that situation in that club the same way it would be way more confrontational. Yeah. Absolutely. I, I agree. One hundred percent with that statement about emotional IQ recently this, this is not a plug. I actually do. Listen to the history of stand up. Oh, yeah. Season two started. And in season. Two guys just had an episode come out recently about the playboy circuit. And this was something that I didn't recognize this episode for anybody listening is available now when our episode comes out, so give it a listen. This brings us to something that we'd we'd love for you explore with. Us here, which is the interactions between dick Gregory and Hugh, Hefner, the mastermind behind playboy magazine Lear the playboy empire. No, this is something you were alluding to in the beginning for sure. And this playboy clever, I didn't realize was a big source of entertainment and massive, you know, opportunity for working comics. If you've got a regular gig at the playboy club, which was in Chicago at the time of that was a massive break for you. Can you tell us a little bit about how dick Gregory literally kind of stumbled his way into this massive break? The story is fantastic. Well, this is you soom. This is why talking to you guys. This moment is very important in the big history of stand up and we covered briefly in our first season. And then went a little closer in. Thank you. For the kind words about the playbay episode. I appreciate if we ate it for anyone. It's the eight of us that are interested in the history of. Stand up. So this is what happens twenty nine thousand nine hundred sixty the first playboy club opens your. Like, what does that mean a playboy club well in fifty three real quickly Hafner publishes this magazine, December fifty three called playboy, Maryland rose on the cover? There's no date stamped on it, because it might have been the last one and it's basically has nudie pictures in it. But nothing too graphic it. I hope that's clear. What that means? Yes. Yeah. And then like articles, and he was into literature. And so anyway, this magazine, attache cog. Oh this kid who had this dream becomes his runaway success in the fifties? So he is like printing money by fifty seven is outselling time magazine outselling Esquire. It's like this incredible end has a big female readership, as well. So he three things happen around this time one he does this huge indoor jazz festival. Galled the playboy jazz festival to he buys a mansion in Chicago and the call at the playboy mansion, which is like this party house, and three he opens the playboy club and also four. There's another thing, I'm forgetting, he starts, this syndicated television show called Playboy's penthouse, which is this black and white, and the first two years, and you kinda get sort of presents like this party that you're invited to so people are sitting around, and they're drinking, and they're smoking, and there's a guy playing piano, and suddenly Sammy Davis comes in and sayings. And then Lenny Bruce does some comedy it's, it's just very incredible. Like insight into like the world. He wants to create after and that was kind of like a variety show for him. Right. Is that where we get that idea of him with the pipe and the smoking jacket and the whole? Yeah, yeah, yeah. But it's not it is a variety show, but not on a preceding stage in like a living room and then we let's go over to the dining room and then let's get some. Cocktails made over here. And let's listen to side Coleman play witchcraft. And it's it's just a great like promotional tool for the playboy brand, which was, and we talk about it in the podcast that he was going for sophistication like that was his like he thought got if I could make nudie picture, you know, this part of a sophisticated lifestyle with high fidelity and sports cars, and jazz, music, and great literature that. And that's what worked, you know what I mean? So it was like, suddenly not a smutty behind the counter kind of embarrassing thing if you wanted to see pictures of beautiful women, so that was that was another genius Hugh Hefner's. So he's make eats kill killing it killing during Eisenhower's administration. So he opens his playboy club, February twenty ninth nineteen sixty and the playboy club was this. You had to pay twenty dollars and got a key. Literally a metal key later..
