You see two things of you that stretches all the way to the east bay and one very big cross. The cross is an imposing sight.

How Seraphine Is Unintentionally Using Moonstone
"Seraphine has a weird moonstone interaction. Yes so it's really cool so serafin if you if you've ever played her in built moonstone you're like why does she. He'll so much. So because our passive when use spells put spell rocks on allies the little note things like all the time it constantly is putting her in combat even if she's not damaging enemies because the proc moonstone typical. You need to damage an enemy. But if she just uses her cue on a minion and that and there's an ally near her who's in combat it will put a note on them and then count her as being in combat so she's constantly talking moonstone way more often than she should because she doesn't necessarily need to be in combat to proctor passive which then puts her in combat to proc. Moonstone yeah basically For my understanding she has an invisible aura. that is always on possibly of course it's hard to. It's hard to know this without actually like having code or whatever But the thought is. She has a permanent or that affects everyone in the in the in the radio because her ot instantly applies full notes to to her yet based on the number of allies in the area So that would need to be tracked somehow And a lot of serafin means. This is the the cause of her Her very strong interaction with With moonstone
5 Mistakes to Avoid when Preparing Students for Standardized Testing
"Standardized. Testing can be stressful. But there are some things you can do to minimize the stressful situation and the such students up for success and i know that this year is particularly difficult because about testing students during a pandemic is not something teachers want to do. So i'm here to give you some things to avoid when thinking about standardized test one thinking about standardized testing whether or not. Your state is going to do that this year. So the first mistake to avoid is to not explicitly teach test taking strategies throughout the year sometimes as teachers. We can wait until a month before the test a week before the test to teach students those test taking strategies am i saying teach to the test no but when students are familiar with test they can strategies it will help them to reduce their test anxiety because they have strategies to use when they get stuck if they they don't know the material and they can't move forward and also test taking skills are used beyond school so important for students to learn to be able to use their tests they can strategies and just as an example in my adult life. There are numerous times when i've had to take tests to demonstrate my knowledge in nineteen talk about google certification in order to become google certified. You have to take a test. Is it a standardized test. No but it's a test that is going to demonstrate my knowledge so i need to have those test taking strategies to help me and a students need those test taking strategies the second mistake avoid is not simulating the test environment. Simulating the test environment will prepare students for what they will encounter on testee. If students are familiar with the testing environment. They can focus on their test. The third mistake is not exposing students to practice test items. I did not know the power of exposing students who practice test items honestly. A former principal of mine is the wanda injured. -duced this to the teachers in our school myself. It was eye opening because once we started doing it. We saw that some students got stuck with even understanding the question and it's just unbelievable how exposing students to the test item health. Help them to prepare for what they were going to encounter on testee and the students saw the level of difficulty with the task questions. Teachers had to encourage them and let them know that they could do. It may look different from what they were taught in the classroom. It is something that they will be able to break down and figure it out. The third mistake is not teaching students how to use technology tools in the test or that will be used in the test after proctoring multiple test. I noticed students did not know how to use the tools in a standardized tests that they were taking for example something as simple as dragging and dropping students who are not familiar with. This will have great difficulty answering. The question are tackling the question. Some students because they have never been taught how to use the tools like the highlighter. Function will sit there and play with the tool so teach students how to use technology tools in the standardized tests. And you know we can say that students they're digital natives so they know how to use these things but do they know how to use the context of test taking setting. That was actually tip number four or mistake number four so now we're on mistake number five and that's not teaching students how to check their work or answers. I've seen this time. And time again or a students will not go back and check their work. During a standardized test teaching students how to check their work will prevent them from making minor mistake. Second cost them. Having students check their work on a continual basis is also a best practice for instruction some key takeaways from this episode number. One is to explicitly teach at test taking strategies throughout the year. No we don't wanna teach to the test for students need to learn. Test taking strategies. Number to simulate the test environment make sure students know what they're going to expect an environment on test day number three expose students to practice test items sit into able to see the level of difficulty number four teach students how to use the technology tools in the test or that will be used in the test and last but not least. I know that there is a lot of controversy surrounding standardized tests this year especially with everything going on but i do think there is some benefit to teaching students test taking strategies and all the things that we talked about previously
Higher-Order Thinking and Personalized Systems of Instruction (PSIs) in Higher Education
"You i got interested in the idea of kind of looking at higher order thinking and sort of personal systems of instruction when you yourself were a student and that led me to the question of what was personalized systems of instruction especially computerized ones from beyond. You know i. I think today everyone sort of thinks about all you can do all this stuff online. You learn online. Everyone's an online program. But if you go back maybe fifteen years you know. Maybe even ten years it feels like one of these technologies that couldn't have existed but we know. Psi original work was from well before computers. Were something that everyone had seven of in their house and you know in in the form of a phone so could you tell us a little bit about what. Psi's were like when you were starting out in higher education. You were starting to use them as part of your doctoral program. Sure well can. I use a way back machine to tell you another little tidbit secret. Of course you can do right if we go way back to me being in grade one and then i realized this later that there were reading. Labs and reading. Lab was the self paced set of there. Were these big boxes at the back of our room and you could go through these little reading vignettes. I remember reading about brown bears and things like that. Like that. Just stuck out to me because i love reading about them right like what were they. Where did they live what they eat so forth. And then you would answer these questions and if you'd have to get them all complete and correct and then you could go on to the next one so there was kind of this. It was all mastery based and i realized later this. Psi in like k. Through twelve right like in this really popular back at the time that i was in grade one and you know as students we kind of love this we could go at our own pace and get immediate feedback on whether or not we're right and we keep going on and on and on on these things and there's a little bit of competition among us rate because like you could be finished all of this work in your reading and language arts like whenever it was up to you you could get it all done and then go into something else so that was kind of exciting or are you could help other students in the class so i think that i never thought about it until recently but i think that when i when i was introduced to computer aided psi which was topped by joseph parrot the university of manitoba but this is probably why i love this system so much because it is self paced but the early early psi if you go back to the work of fred keller when he published his seminal article and nineteen sixty eight rate and the journal of applied behavior analysis goodbye teacher based upon a rhyme and he's introducing people to assist them that he's developed and he introduced in brazil as well as the united states. Psi was you know these units of study that you could you know master hopefully in about a week or so and you would go in and you would take a test when you're ready to take the test and then you either pass or you've gotta re study and if you've gotta re study you could go over the task with the proctor or the professor and then you could come back and retake it when you're ready to do so after you know some amount of kind of time out to re steady So if you think about that like things that there's an instructor right like if you have ten units that you have to have students take tests on. How many different tests do you need for them. You know if they get a reset and one you don't just give them the same test you have to have like a whole bunch of questions and different forms of big zam right for each unit so imagine the administration of that right like just can you imagine like panel versus thirty students versus three hundred. What would that be like a lot of tests a lot of grading more file cabinets right basically all the file cabinets right. Yeah file cabinet. Imagine carrying all the tests to and from the classroom and keeping them organnized. And you know. And we didn't have and they didn't have computers back then either right so when joe pair computerized this he actually made it. So that you could go in and you could request a-tast online and this is before point and click okay. This is before we had windows right in the we actually had to learn how to type in commands into the computer. And i never think of myself as somebody who programs but i did. I had to learn programming to be able to do this. Because you have to give the computer commands to get into your account and then to call up a test and then tell it to add more lines if you wanted to add more information to your answer or are you. Talking like a dos. Prompt or more like an old like early. Eighties looking kind of you know unix mainframe mainframe o wow absolutely yeah rob. It's definitely a mainframe computer right. And so so we did that and you know we after you master to test then you could sign on to be a peer reviewer or printer for student who had not yet passed that unit. So i mean think of it right like if you love this stuff and you're and you just go in and on a weekly basis at least on a weekly basis you pass one unit a week or more you can be peer reviewing a whole bunch of them and the peer reviews were great because they were bonus points in the course you and and the final exam where something like sixty percent because it was in person and they that was the quality control you had over the online course was making sure that people were who they said they were and you know that they weren't just doing things open book so you know it was nice being able to pat up though the the bonus points just in case but he bit. But here's here's the track right like when you do that and you're actually going and you're taking your test and your peer reviewing other students test. You're actually
Purell Hopes Well Sanitize Long After the Pandemic Ends
"Daily on this friday february fifth. Happy friday everyone. Here's a question. How much hand sanitizer did you use this week. And betting a lot certainly more than you use before the start of the covid nineteen pandemic well. The same probably goes for the number of extra paper towel rolls. Unopened surface cleaners. You have stored in your home. There is no question that the pandemic has changed our buying habits but it's also changed our hygiene hazards including you guessed it. Just how much sanitizer. We use on our hands as you might expect. Sales of pure l. Hand sanitizer jumped six hundred percent in two thousand and twenty no surprise there and go joe industries which makes pure. Al recently made a move. That's a rarity in its sector. They built a new factory and a new warehouse. Now that is an expensive undertaking. Unless of course. There's a payoff which begs the question. Will there be pure l. Says yes there are betting that demand for hand sanitizer will remain high even when the pandemic is eventually in the rear view mirror. Go jos chief. Executive kerry jairus told the wall street journal that the company which previously had one factory in one warehouse wasn't planning to build any more for a decade but then again they also weren't planning for a global pandemic soon pure l. started flying off the shelves and go joe decided to build. That's a risky move. That other companies within demand products aren't ready to make yet clorox which sells disinfecting cleaners hand wipes and hand sanitizers also saw demand grow during the pandemic as did lysol which sells cleaners and yes hand sanitizer but instead of breaking ground on new buildings clorox and lysol looked for other ways to expand and make more products faster. The wall street journal reported that both companies reconfigured existing factories to increase output and they hired third party manufacturers to make more products if the pandemic ends and demand decreases well. They can simply discontinue the third party products and not lose much money if anything. The pandemic has crowded the hand sanitizer market companies like proctor and gamble which did not sell sanitizer previously jumped into action at the beginning of the pandemic and produce their own sanitizer safeguard for consumers. And don't forget the distilleries texas based vodka maker tito's produced more than eleven hundred tons of hand sanitizer between march and december of last year which they gave away to first responders and other critical personnel other distilleries across the country bottled their sanitizers for profit. Which helped him stay afloat. When tours and tastings were cancelled someday someday this pandemic will be over and when that day comes. Procter and gamble will likely return to their diverse portfolio of laundry detergent shampoo and toothpaste. Tito's will once again focus on cocktails clorox and lysol will continue to meet house cleaning needs but burell

So laura will not only stop using badger or goat hair which were cited in the petition but animal hair any kind other companies that have also banned batter.

I gave you a gave everybody a little bit of a bio background on you go. Why don't you tell us a little bit about who you are. And what your passions are in your own words so he kinda get a feel for who. You are where you're coming from okay. So i'm a contractor by profession and just three years into my practice. My father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. And as it was of course you know. Doctors gave him no hope and basically told him he would be dead in six weeks and he bought into that and he died very horrible deaths but to my training has a chiropractor and nutrition and understanding how the body can heal. I just felt that there were things that could have been done to you not to help them through the process not necessarily cure the situation but just give them a little bit more hope though back then one nine hundred three internet. I just basically you know dove into the science went to the library spoke with some Cancer clinics which were few and far between back then and realized that there were some things that possibly could have been done for my father. So i took that that passion that i had and i found in my soul and just started applying those principles in my practice and sought amazing results. I mean people were reversing auto immune diseases and that's rheumatoid arthritis cancer allergies digestive issues because they were taking responsibility for their health and applying so wellness principles so fast forward Twenty three years into my practice. And i'm getting ready for work. I'm in the shower. I typically did a breast exam. My mother had breast cancer. Bam you know felt that lump. That changed my the course of my life personally and professionally forever. So i understand that. You're a bio energetic higher proctor. So what does that mean. Well it means that. I look beyond just the application of chiropractic as far as Relieving pain headaches back pain neck pain. I looked at the body as a whole and i also used various instruments that basically worked with the bioenergetics system of the body. We know that we are one billion physical matter. The rest is all energy. So there are instruments tools that we can use to access that energy to find out what is out of balance with buyer genetic testing and use different tools and modalities to help balance the body so homeopathy nutrition lasers inc tomography later on in my practice so nutrition supplementation all those things so was more liba integrative while his practice very cool so when you when you did the exam on yourself and you discover that you had a lump. How did you kind of go about. Starting this journey in healing from breast cancer. They call the breast cancer conqueror. So how did you get the title. Well i had seen in my practice. The effects of conventional medicine with cancer treatments and a lot of patients didn't fare very well bursts the patients who applied evidence based natural medicine. And i knew right away. You know what what i was going to do. And just like any other woman though. Of course there was shock and there was frustration and overwhelming. I but i recognize that. I just needed to get a a system going for myself where i could check off the boxes inside. That's kind of when i had that. Download about the seventy essential system. It's a step by step. Guide that if you follow you never have to fear disease again because it looks at every aspect of healing you know from nutrition to detox to emotions to dental tation bloodwork all of that and so when i put that together it made it a lot easier for me to go through my first healing journey and after i retired quote unquote after thirty years in practice and Sold my practice. I just started sharing. My my personal healing journey was women around the world and i had no idea i just threw up a website and one thing led to another and now we've coached women actually fifty-six countries and now i yeah. I am the breast cancer. Conqueror
The Population Control Movement
"The negro project was very popular with black community leaders at the time and it would be unfair to frame it as an act of genocide. Sanger wrote repeatedly of the importance of bringing in black doctor stating at one point. I do not believe that this project should be directed a run by white medical men which is good. If you're going to do a healthcare project like focused on the black community like that. That shows like she. She was like she was capable of understanding what was necessary in order to actually reach people in nineteen thirty nine now so that i guess yeah. Yeah in one thousand nine hundred nine. She argued in a letter. That black ministers needed to be heavily involved in the project in order to gain the trust of their communities. We do not want to go out that we want to exterminate the negro population in the minister is the man who could straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members again sue problematic language there but also there's no evidence she was actually going for genocide because she was again doing the same thing with white people. She was a birth control across the board advocate right. She wanted everyone to have more access to contraceptives. There are people on the right. Like denise souza who will spread wildly untrue claims about sanger like that. She called black people human weeds in a minister civilization. And there is no evidence of this sanger's own legacy contains enough problematic facts without making up lies. She was a eugenicist and she wrote in nineteen twenty-three that birth control does not mean contraception indiscriminately practiced. It means the release in cultivation of the better elements in our society and the gradual suppression elimination and eventual extinction of defective stocks. Those human weeds who threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of american civilization. So she did call people human weeds. But she wasn't referring to black people. She was referring more to mentally challenged people more to people with like who are prone to diseases. And that's bad that's really bad. But she was not like a four exterminating everything but white people. She was four exterminating people. She considered unhealthy or at least exterminating them from the gene pool. Which is again bad. But let's be accurate about the kind of bad it is. You know we don't need to make it anymore. Yeah criminal. I don't say because it's not flowery. It's already bad. Didn't wanna make better by wiping out black people. She wanted to make black people and white people better by wiping out folks who had what she considered to be like bad qualities through selective breeding and. That's really terrible for herself. What does back. Yeah these are yes. Yes thanks at up. Yeah that is bad but like it's not the kind of bad luck again because they tried to. I like the progressives always been trying to wipe out black like. That's not what she was doing. We don't need to add information. She was just a she was a. Here's plenty that's bad about her. Yeah let's let's be intellectually honest when we can dennis someone. She also stated during another speech. I believe now immediately. There should be national sterilization for certain this genetic types of our population who are being encouraged to breed and would die out where the government not feeding them. You know that's bad but again it's the kind of like part of why they like to try to frame her. Badness is something different is because if you're accurate about it you can find a fuck load of republicans who say the. The poor should starve right. Like the people who can't work on their own by jordan peterson. Talking about like how terrifying it is that. Some people aren't intelligent enough to be in the military and like say like because. What do we do with those people like. That's a really. Like what margaret sanger was. Saying back then is still common today. Apple dress it up a little bit more. I mean kind of relate to the copay things like that's fine. They're already they're already probably die. So it's the run productive. Yeah they're in productive there on the government dole. Exactly yeah she just. She was bad she just was not the kind of bad people. Like desouza liked painter. As and in fact a lot of progressive black leaders at the time like margaret sanger. And what she was trying to do in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine letter to dr. cj gamble of proctor and gamble fame. She urged him to get over his resistance to hiring a fulltime negro physician. Ask quote the colored. Negroes can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means they're ignorant superstitions in doubt again. She's also she's number one saying that black people are ignorant and superstitious which is bad but also saying that like no you get educated black people to talk to them about birth control so again. She's a problematic person but not painters

So at that point we really be became friends and when when we all went our separate ways I really you know you. You don't expect to see too many of your of your college friends again but But all of those of us who were in the business we continue to be in contact what we did most of our work in the dramatic.

Greg Amundson on the Spirituality Requirement of Leadership
"Greg madame. So excited to have you on the show. Welcome dose of leadership. Thank you for having me on your show. Your background is so varied man. I was reading your bio and a komo leave. How much stuff you've done in your short life span man. What what what drives us motivation in this passion. What what's driving it. I appreciate the question. I have certainly worn many hats. There seems to be a hardwired. Drives in me. Undoubtedly fostered by my mom and dad have gone to be with the lord. This hardwired drive to serve other people specifically in the context of the warrior profession whether that be military law enforcement martial art fitness now serving in ministry capacities. That drive has been part of my life for as long as i can remember watching. Your father was a pastor. Right if i read that correctly following in his footsteps. He wore many hats as well. He was a naval officer. Tire proctor bodybuilder. Pastor youth minister at the california youth authority phenomenal father to me. Amazing husband to my mom. He was just an amazing guy. Yeah so obviously you had a perfect example to strive towards right. I mean i sincerely did. I know many people likely say that in good for that press job. I was one of them. I have an amazing example in both my mom and my dad they complimented each other so well and to this day i still have moments of my parents told me that i knew this was gonna happen. So what is it. I mean it looking at you. Obviously fitness takes a huge Part of your makeup. Right and mean and certainly i can understand in i strive to get there and i know when i'm in the zone getting that physical fitness piece and coming from the marine corps. When i was looking back where i was him now to where. I wasn't a marine corps. And how fit. I was in how that that fed into my mental capacity. Right i mean. I think that physical fitness the main reason i think obviously we think it's for our our health or physical health like a heart and blood pressure and all i can. Thanks but i honestly think it's more mental thing and i i just. I know that i don't exercise. My mental capacity goes down the drain. Yeah well said. I completely agree with you. My earliest childhood memories again back to my parents earliest childhood memories. My dad driving me to the ymca to workout along the way would listening to audio cassette tapes of the prominent pastors theologians of that time so in my young very impressionable mind. I'm starting to see the relationship between physical training developing a strong robust resilient body developing a strong bus resilient than developing a strong resilient spirit. How those are all interconnected and reflecting on nearly a lifetime of physical training. I've probably worked out every day of my life since i was a very very young boy. What i've realized is that the greatest adaptation to all the physical training is mental. Yeah i think it's the biggest. I think it's the biggest hurdle and i am. I'm fifty two years old. And i that clarity of of the challenge of the mental thing really just in the last decade for me realizing the power of that And i would say that. Leadership is eighty percent if not more of the self awareness and overcoming limiting beliefs in the self doubt that i think and i've come to appreciate that this is largely due to all the conversations i've had on the show for eight years that they never truly go away and i think that once you understand that embrace that then you can start getting on with it. Does that make sense. Like i think we spent a lot of wasted energy and time and resources trying to eliminate it even in the. I think even when this. I'm curious what your answer is. Because you're such a maniac. When it comes to fitness right but at some point i mean you you have to be dealing with limiting beliefs self-doubt even as those confident in his fifth. As you must must be right is that is that a fair statement. Very fair statement. I flipped the paradigm on fear uncertainty anxiety. Self doubt. yeah. I noticed i. I'm only fearful. I only have anxiety only uncertain about things that matter in me. A great deal right. So i use anxiety. Fear uncertainty as a compass to navigate to point me in the direction that god wants me to go.

There there's all sorts of good coming out of this hide. Cast instate is no different. I guess today is jeff davis. Jeff is the founder and ceo of maglio inc. A venture backed creative and media analytics agency famous for building brands on youtube with capabilities to also originate co create and validate new brands. Thanks so much for joining me today jess and it's a pleasure to be with you. It is a pleasure to have you here. And we're gonna be talking about youtube which i have to tell you is such an interesting topic for me because it's one of those things that i play with but i'm not really sure that i am doing what i could be doing to really maximize it so while i know the listeners of this i'm looking forward to getting a lot out of it as how fun. Yeah the one thing that Is been you know since my departure from procter and gamble. We spent more than a decade now on the youtube platform. So it's it's kind of ironic that it's been you know at that platform. You launched in in two thousand six is now quite an old platform. I honestly but still one that i think has major impact for how you create awareness and trump for products. So i look forward to talk to you. Yeah definitely and and you know what everyone says is video is the thing and so while youtube has been around it and my understanding. Is that for the longest time. Youtube has been like the second most searched site on the internet after google. That's correct that's that is still a factor that the second most used search engine people don't get that is youtube behind of course google and all of owned by google And so what. I like to say if you don't have at least a channel if you don't have some content that is searchable with the right words etc you're foregoing the second most you search engine in the world crazy crazy and and i think people might have sort of grown up with this idea that unless you're doing a how to video or sh showing someone had a take a washing machine apart and put it back together. Which is what. My husband uses it for That you don't need to be there but that's not really true anymore. Yeah definitely not in fact if you take a look at the most significant growing trends I haven't seen this now for for for a few months but but it's probably still holds true. You know how to videos are a major growing piece All of several categories including beauty and and skin care and all of that those are major categories and then if you look at the educational components and educational being a very broad topic but if you just take a look at khan academy or or the number of sites on there that are just geared for educational learning. I joke around. You could get from from youtube and it would be more valuable than a than a stanford or harvard degree because the content is so incredibly rich. Yeah that's interesting. I think you're probably right about that. Because it's practitioners teaching what they now. So you're getting it from the horse's mouth so to seek yes exactly yeah okay So what do you think is the biggest mistake that business owners make when they're building a brand on youtube that's actually an easy one and Ended up being one. That has been the case for some time. People are starting to figure this out but one of the biggest mistakes you can make is having content designed for another platform even another digital platform. Instagram facebook video. And that's done just assuming that. Oh you can just repurpose that to youtube. And the reason why i say that is that in general we found we were one of the first Consumer products so one of the famous parts of my story you know having served a couple of decades at proctor and gamble and then leaving and then joining the startup world and my first company was a company called or brush inc a or brush tongue cleaner. And it was this crazy cool product. That was patented from dr bob wag staff and he had tried to sell it to png and he had tried to license it to johnson johnson and it was was a tongue scraper. Ninety percent of bad breath comes from bacteria on your tongue and he had created a really great product t to remove bacteria from the tongue and he had tried to go about it. marketing it With traditional means one of his last failed efforts was a was an infomercial where it just failed miserably. And he ended up meeting with a couple of young guys. Here in lake city utah. Jeff harmon and And neil harmon and jeff was just one of these guys. That really wasn't early guy on youtube and was doing all new. All these insights and outs and And so we ended up launching this product on youtube. I was the angel investor and eventual. Ceo of or brush and the cool story about war shits in two thousand seventeen youtube. Recognize the ten most iconic admiral moments on youtube from the two thousand five launch of youtube and brush was one of those ten. You would've done. You may not have recognized or brush but you would recognize the other nine it was it was always like a girl. Campaign was the jeff gordon. Pepsi campaign was the kyrie irving Pepsi campaign with uncle drew. They were just these really iconic youtube long form campaigns that people are starting to figure out that maybe fifteen second or a thirty second or one minute was not the best way to to create awareness and trial for your products and services
How to Lead with Practicality
"I- Melody Harm from Yahoo Finance and I'm so excited to be speaking with Gary Banner Truck. Today. Thanks for joining a scary. Thank you melody. The theme of this year's Am SS road to recovery. Tell us what you're seeing veer media. Your focus has always been on innovative experiential marketing of course that has sort of been thrown out the window to a certain extent Tell us how you've been able to give it. During time, it's really funny. The way you've been structured that I totally get the positioning of us being innovative or disruptive or things that nature. But in actual business meetings with big and small brands I've always clarified kind of my persona or like the vibe around us. I've always said look people think that were innovating. I think more practical I. think that most people talk about today in a very confused way most companies really put yesterday on a pedestal what used to work and they think of today as the future, but it's actually today. So ironically is thought we were practical versus disruptive or innovative. So to your point in the way you set that up. We were never doing vr a are like the things I talk about what consumers are actually doing now like I think we can all agree that consumers give their attention to this device. and. So when we're doing media and creative in these channels and Ott facebook instagram, Youtube, Tiktok, whatever they may be linked in for B. Two B. Companies. We think it's practical. We think it's underpriced no different than that to Yahoo, and early there's a yahoo that ad product Yahoo Google ads like Yahoo ads that was driver for my family's business in ninety, nine, two, thousand, two, thousand, one, two, thousand people thought Yahoo ads was so futuristic but if you were doing them, you knew they were practical you were doing business. So what's actually happened for us is people have thrown out yesterday. And Have Opened Their Eyes Today Aka the biggest brands in the world that we work with. A starting to understand paying six hundred thousand dollars for production to run on television. Might not be the best use of their money and have leaned into e COM. And content and media being together in digital channels to drive business results, and this has been the greatest era of CMO's and real marketing individuals at the highest levels becoming more practical and practitioners. So we're seeing a lot of growth to be frank. And we're seeing people finally have the You know I was reading about this on Yahoo or Wall Street Journal or Ad Age, but I never took it seriously because I put yesterday on a pedestal. And now I actually see what you meant I can't believe facebook ads and creative can drive my business so much. So we're seeing a big seachange in Madison Avenue. And even start a planned to a degree and and obviously we're excited about it from our perspective. Ran We see this wide divergence when we look at the industry, right that are actually sending those ad dollars even if they're rejecting their budgets of course, retail financial services are two of the top senders. When you look at even the growth that's happening twenty twenty. How are you seeing that manifest in your business? Are there any particular bright spots that you can call out or perhaps laggards in the face? Overall? The the bright spots for me are. I can't believe how many whether it's craft or proctor pepsico the conversations I'm having where the actual sales data. is becoming the KPI, not the internal A. Or. Nielsen Brand Studies. So. You, know. I. Actually see a lot of if we're very heavy CPG we're heavy financial services as chases client like. We're seeing we weren't. We weren't in airlines or hotels like we got lucky is the only word I can use our client mix was. Berry. Benefited by Govan to be honest in the short term. In that timeframe because they're worried about supply chain to be honest, right our clients are much more worried about making more of their stuff than anything else. I think it's just affirmation of my prior statement which is. The bright spots or the advancements are as following. We are seeing bigger allocation to marketing because we finally got clients to measure on how well they're doing on Amazon dot com or proving to them that we're moving product at Kroger or Walmart or Home Depot. So what's happening investing more because the debate went out the window because they weren't lazy with their money because nobody can do TV productions. So you're seeing the real world of haves and have nots. The industries that were most affected are obviously in trouble more so than others and the industries that most benefited from it food necessities. Were unable to spend their marketing money. The way they're they're accustomed to. Meanwhile what was happening was the way they were accustomed to big productions on TV and then doing matching luggage to that TV spot on digital was for the last decade wrong or at least wildly overpriced.
Procter & Gamble beats estimates as sales jump 9%, raises forecast amid strong demand
"Another company that is benefiting from people working from home. Uncle Sam is suing Google. We will get to that. We're going to start with consumer staples. Procter and gamble sales in the first quarter rose nine percent. The company raised revenue guidance for the full fiscal year and shares a proctor and up around one and a half percent, which is not a lot but just enough. That that sock is hitting an all time high. Yeah Outstanding Quarter largely of margin story on the outstanding part. Know, they sold seven percent more in terms of volume about nine percent total. So that's not extraordinary but it's it's good in this. In this economy, people are cleaning both their their homes and their themselves more actually and who the thing that proctor and gamble has going for it is that it is I think the best margin quarter that I could find a over the last fifteen years. So it is not forced into discounting right now the. Promotional sales at it has to make people are still going to the stores painful price for a lot of a lot of their goods, and they are not in the position where they have to raise salaries the moment or. You know they've done very well at keeping costs down so Between those two being able to charge what they want to charge for their products. And doing it more efficiently. A great quarter. Greg, quarter and if they're not spending more money on salaries John Muller, the operating officer and the CFO. Admitted very clear. They are going to be spending more on marketing because they. Look at the current environment. Look proctor and gamble they sell stuff all around the world but North America is their biggest market and I think they're looking at the numbers of how many people are. Spending time on screens. And they're saying to themselves. Yeah it is a good investment for us to. Start ramping up our marketing. Yeah they are spending a lot of time on screens not necessarily. On the screens and where the ads traditionally been, which would be TV ads more people are. Watching watching Netflix, watching things on the video recordings and just skipping through the AD. So it's more and more online. Advertising and. More is coming a sense everybody. Will Be. locked inside for. Another couple of quarters.
"proctor" Discussed on Firewalls Don't Stop Dragons Podcast
"They offer a short training class and then you can become a Proctor Proctor you some of the names for these companies will get into this Thursday. Or but the names they give things are so well orwellian or you know, silly in some cases. They're they're Proctors are called exam integrity and intervention Specialists and they they do require that they have some experience with phone or online customer service work, but that's kind of the level of of person that they tend to I think be looking forward to do these but then in either case whether you're using the AI monitoring mixed with or combined with the live proctoring the results then of the of the flags and the videos and the screenshot everything that the data all the data that's collected ends up with the teacher So in theory most of these proctoring companies get around the idea of you know, well are they could r a i could be faulty by saying? Well, the guy doesn't say if someone is cheating AI says Hey teacher you need you need to look into this and so at the end of the day teachers are supposed to be dead. To look and see whether the flag was warranted or not. But in either case the result is that the student is being policed by AI right? So the you know, the presumption a students will always cheat if you let them do it is not a new thing. I mean, even when I was a long time ago when I was in school there were definitely teachers that that kind of had that bent but it certainly seems that you know Pura a virtual learning seems to have exacerbated this and you know, I mean, you know doesn't the use of technology to prevent cheating and you know in the presumed a lack of Integrity that goes with that just incentivize the creation of more creative voice Dodge Jeep and gain the system. Yeah, that's a good question. We've we've definitely seen evidence that people are falling victim to the idea that cheating is going to increase if it's easier to do so the only data I found in looking this up was that there was no significant difference in students admissions of cheating in live face-to-face courses versus online courses, but I mean generally speaking. I think it's good to flip the dog. Round I think students and young people are really resourceful that this is a really difficult time. Everyone. Everyone has had to become more resourceful during the pandemic, you know in the past that might mean that students had had to take care of their family is go to an after-school job play sports and study their school work just before a test starts because kids are busy, right and for other students that might mean that they're more anxious and off they might be taking these tests and getting false positives just because of, you know, the amount of pressure that are put on them right now and when it comes to the technology, you know, in fact advising cheating, I mean personally, I remember looking at ways to download MP3s when I was in high school by using proxy servers. It is the late 90s just because I was trying to see if I could get around the internet filtering software, right? And I think that students are going to find ways to hack these systems, but that's because the systems are broken and students and young people are very good at pushing back again. The systems that they recognize are BS, even if they're just doing that a principal. So I think you know most people are going to agree that being watched by a i while you're in your own home is home vs..

"proctor" Discussed on Sidenote
"Controversial subjects. And Welcome back to side note podcast. Today, we're talking about what it might be like to live on Mars that can teach us about sustainable living sustainable eating right here on earth with our amazing guest Dr. Proctor who's GonNa walk us through some really cool science. I'm very excited about our little interview today. to Dr Proctor whooped. Name, how's IT GOING GREG? I'm good. How are you? It's Friday. So there's always a little pep in the step trying to think of what is new. Every week, we just have to talk about like updates on quarantine. Yeah. Oh ordering in food sometime, cooking for myself looking at gray walls staring really relevant. I. Feel like our relationship to food has changed a lot over quarantine which we can talk about today Oh my gosh. Yeah Food I feel like. More and more I've always been an introvert but I feel like I'm becoming more introverted I don't know why I feel like I'm kind of like, Oh, I'm so glad it's the weekend because I actually just want to stay inside and do nothing I. Think I know why? Because we're in a global pandemic and we all even as someone who had as extrovert with a bit of introvert I'm I am an introvert to I'm like I don't even think about Friday nights as time to hang out with anyone other than myself I. Guess That's True But even Before because it was summer announced transitioning to winter now I'm like, yeah. Fully ready to hibernate. Anyone until next March for whatever whenever I go outside and see people doing things I'm like people are still doing. We've really leaned into this whole. Shocking. But yeah, a anything else no.

With schools online, software to catch students cheating is big business
"Not only teaching. That's happening remotely for millions of students testing to and many colleges are using software to watch students take those tests, big providers, include respond, US, proctor, you and PROC. Some of them use webcams to track how? Students move their heads or is or touch the keyboard anything out of the ordinary flagged for teachers to review todd feathers recently co wrote a piece about a rebellion against this kind of surveillance for motherboard one concern false positives. Once you start the exam, they're all kinds of environmental factors that can lead to false positives. If you're a parent who has a child in the room, you're much more likely to be looking away from your screen or moving around than somebody who doesn't have A. Child in the room if you have adhd or some kind of anxiety disorder that's tied to taking tests, you're likely to exhibit behaviors that fall outside of the norm of other people in your class, and all of this can lead to being flagged as suspicious activity, and we have heard from students who have cried during tests because they're anxious about them. embiid flag alternatively I should say also heard stories from professors about students who go to all kinds of creative lanes to cheat from home. And have been caught as a result of using the cast off wear. So you talk to students who are really worried about privacy surveillance the potential for people to sort of fall outside the spectrum of what the Algorithm thinks is normal behavior. But not in fact, be cheating. You also spoke with a student of color who couldn't even take the test because the software didn't recognize his face. This is a problem that is not just related to this kind of software. A lot of these digital proctoring vendors don't create their own facial recognition technology. They are licensing it from other companies that specialize in s in facial recognition has been shown over and over again in different settings to not be good at recognizing people of Color, not be as good at recognizing women and to struggle to the point of absolute failure when it comes to people who don't identify one gender or another. What are the companies says about these criticisms I mean some students have protested the use of these the software campuses how have the company's reacted? Directed with a response that is pretty common across a lot of different technologies, applications of technologies, which is it. This software is a tool the company's give it to universities and two professors, and all they're doing is providing a quicker more efficient way for professors to identify possibly suspicious moments during an exam. There has been a lack of response directly to the criticisms about the invasion of privacy and about the way that it can negatively affect people who are underprivileged or from certain ethnic backgrounds. Right. Now, we're, of course in this moment where a lot more college students and students in Pre K. through twelve are at home taking online classes if and when we all get to get back together again, do you see these companies continuing to thrive and they're being an enough demand? A million dollar question I think that it's a pretty fair to say that once students are back in classrooms of all types this will not be quite as widely used as it is now but that being said, some of these companies are looking for other ways to expand. Their customers for example, Puck Toro has a recently announced a partnership with McGraw Hill, textbook maker to integrate its services into some of those online textbooks, and there are certain kinds of assessments, assessments for certain professional certifications such as nursing, which do require as part of state laws that the exams be proctored, and so if those aren't taking place in a physical room or even if they are, but there's the option to do it online. A space where tools like this are not only a possibility there arguably required by law.
How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled
"How did millions of Americans come to believe that most plastic would be recycled when that's not actually true Laura Sullivan is GonNa take the story from here. Okay, it seemed like a good place to start was the plastic industry they make the stuff. Did they know the truth about recycling plastic? I headed to one of the birthplaces of plastic plastic comes from oil. But really comes from the dupont chemical company and some of the plastic industries old records are housed in the Hagley Library. It's this stone building on the grounds of the first dupont family home in Delaware. This is a place that actually used to store sodium nitrate back when Dupont made gunpowder not plastic. There's an archivist with a bow tie a handlebar moustache named Lucas Clawson, and he looks like someone would make cocktails. Lucas wheeled out a cart of boxes. Thank you. Files that documented the discovery of a chemical marvel that changed the world, a product that looked like glass but break a product that could also look like lightweight fluff but keep things hot called Styrofoam and incredible new film that can preserve food for days called. Saran. Wrap there were a couple of clues about recycling inside the boxes from the industry's most powerful lobby group at the time the Society of the plastics industry their job was to lobby for the big oil and plastic companies. So think Exxon Chevron Dow Dupont. And there's this one memo from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three, the. Movement is just being born, and one of the top people in the plastics industry is talking about how the cost of sorting plastic is high but it seemed like a lot of the documents were were missing I find reference to a memo a report, but then I noticed that someone had drawn a line through it Lucas. Can I ask you a question absolute. Okay. Why? In this section are all. These APPS. So many of these. Cross out because those records are no longer. Here anymore day or not where did they go the society of the Plastics Industry Astra them back think they really yes is an unusual. That doesn't happen often. Do you do know why they took them. Did they say? I, do not know. Okay Of course, there are all kinds of reasons why an industry lobbying group might want. It's records back I did call society the plastic folks and ask them if I could see the records they took they said No. So I headed to another library this time at Syracuse University and they're buried in its tax, our boxes of files donated from an industry consultant. Actually the industry consultant died in the why found the boxes and gave them to Syracuse and inside these boxes. I found what I was looking for a report was sent to top oil and plastic executives in nineteen seventy three. It says, recycling plastic is nearly impossible. There is no recovery from obsolete products. It says recycling is costly sorting. It is infeasible plus it says plastic degrades every time you try to reuse it. So the oil in plastic industry new, they've known for almost fifty years. and. Then I found more confidential memos in meetings echoed decades of this knowledge insight thousands of pages of courtroom discovery. There's a speech from an industry insider in nineteen seventy four when it comes to recycling large quantities plastic, it says there is quote serious doubt that it can ever be made viable on an economic basis. Now. Okay. Sure. Anyone can take something plastic melted down and make something else. But what these documents are saying is that it's expensive, it's time consuming it's chemically problematic and it's just cheaper and easier to make plastic out of new oil instead of plastic trash there are all kinds of names in these documents men who have never spoken publicly before and there was one name I kept seeing over and over he. was, giving speeches at fancy hotels, hosting conferences and Berlin. Phoenix, they called him a bigwig. He was the industry's top lobbyist. Larry Thomas this is the man I had to find but do you know how many Larry Thomas's there are in the United? States. Thousands I'd call say are you the Larry Thomas used to work in plastics? Are you leery Thomas who used to be president of the Society of the plastics industry? And then finally, I'll prompt Merrin the plastics industry no getting around it the BIGWIG himself I'll walk. Do that's for sure. Yeah. My personal views certainly didn't always job with. US I had the quake as part of my job. That's the way it was there. He's retired now on the coast of Florida but I told him I've been reading all about his exploits in the world of plastic. Where would the offices the officers were? What would you think they would be K. Street yes. Twenty Five K. Street Casey was the heart of lobbying in Washington and it was in those offices at top executives in the world's most powerful oil and plastic companies met they had meeting after meeting about a little problem they were having there was just too much plastic trash consumers didn't like it. In one of the documents I found from nineteen nine, hundred nine Larry wrote the top oil executives at Exxon Chevron, Amoco Dow Dupont proctor, and gamble in a bunch of others he wrote the image of plastics is deteriorating at an alarming rate. We are approaching a point of no return. The classic. I was under fire. We gotta do. What it takes to take the heat off. Because we want to continue to make classic equality, they wanted to keep making plastic but the more you make the more plastic trash you get and the obvious solution to this is to recycle it but they knew they couldn't remember it's expensive. It's a great. Discussion about how difficult it was to recycle. They knew that the infrastructure wasn't there. So really have recycling amount to a whole lot. So they needed a different plan. Larry Decides to call a bunch of meetings at fancy hotels. He summons the Society of the plastics people executives Larry doesn't remember the specifics of each particular meeting but one of his deputies at the time Lou Freeman he remembers you could. Get. Back all the layers of my brain. Lou, remembers a bunch of meetings the basic question on the table was. You guys you're our trade association in the plastics industry aren't doing enough. We need to do more. This one dupont executive was telling Lou. It's your job to fix plastics imaging problem. So what do you need? You said, I think if we had five million dollars. which seemed like a lot of money. If we had five million dollars we could. We could. We could solve this problem. And My boss said in response. If you add five million dollars, you would know how to spend it effectively. Well, they came up with a way to spend five million dollars that and a lot more I. Remember this. This is one of these exchanges that sticks with me thirty five years later however long it's been. Anna was You know what we need to do is advertise our way out of it. That was the idea thrown out. The industry decided to advertise its way out of a can't recycle it problem. The possibilities off plastics plastics. From dense. Touted the benefits of a product that after it was used for the most part was headed to a landfill incinerator or even ocean. Look empty yet it's anything but trash it's full of potential. These commercials carried an environmentalist message, but they were paid for by the oil and plastic companies eventually leading to fifteen million dollars a year industrywide ad campaign promoting plastic. So I asked Larry why why spend tens of millions of dollars telling people to recycle plastic when the new recycling plastic wasn't going to work? and. That's when he said it. The point of the whole thing if the public thinks so recycling is working. Then they're not going to be concerned about the environment and if they're not concerned about the environment. Though keep buying plastic it wasn't just Larry in lieu who said this I spoke to half a dozen top guys involved in the industry at the time who all said plan was unfolding and it went beyond at the industry funded recycling projects and local neighborhoods expensive sorting machines that didn't make any economic sense school recycling contests. All of this was done with great fanfare. except I decided to go track down almost a dozen of the industry's biggest projects like the one where they were going to recycle plastic and national parks or the one that was going to recycle all the plastic and school lunches in New York they all failed and disappeared quietly but there was one more part of this campaign, the final piece that did stick around. That recycling symbol with the numbers in the middle this symbol has. So. Much confusion about what is and is not recyclable in the plan to stamp it on every plastic item popped up a lot in the documents I learned of a quiet campaign to lobby almost forty states to require that every single plastic item have this symbol stamped on it. Even if there was no way to economically recycle it, I should note that some. Environmental is also supported. The symbol thinking would help, separate and sort plastic but the industry knew the truth the symbols were causing problems. Warm report told executives in July nineteen ninety-three that the symbol is being misused. It's creating quote unrealistic expectations about what plastic people can recycle. It's being used as a green marketing tool, but the executives decided to keep the symbol anyway. I did reach out to plastic industry folks and they said that the symbols were only meant to help sort plastic and that they were not intended to confuse people but the symbol in the ads in the projects, all of this basically convince people Larry says the idea that the vast majority of plastic can be recycled was sinking in. Say that. After a while the atmosphere seems to change I. Don't know whether it was because people thought that recycling has solved the problem. was that they were just so in love with plastic products that they were willing to overlook the environmental concerns that were were mounting up. It's been thirty years now since most of those plans have been put into place and the public's feelings about plastic have started to shift again, people are reading stories about oceans choked with plastic trash and trace amounts of this stuff inside our bodies, and once again, people are wanting to ban plastic and the survival of the oil companies is at stake.
How I Built Resilience: Sandra Oh Lin of KiwiCo
"On these episodes, we talk with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're coping during this very challenging time and today we're gonNA hear from Sandra. Olen, the founder and CEO of Kiko Kiko makes arts and science projects for kids and ships them out in monthly subscription boxes or crates in March when students began learning from home Sandra's company a spike in orders, and it's now shipped over twenty million boxes around the world I spoke with. Sandra from her home. In the bay area is trying to keep up with demand. Tell us a little bit more about Kiwi Co for people who don't know what what you do tell us about your your company. Yeah. So we design and deliver hands on experiences for kids, kids of all ages. So we have different experiences and products that we develop for Newborns and infants alway through to kids at heart. So teens and even grown ups and these hands on experiences they range. So science experiments, games, kids making play projects that encourage imaginative play. And they're all center around this idea of how can we encourage kids to see themselves as makers And I. Think the the best known as the Kiwi crate and inside like you get pipe cleaners and different OV- like Styrofoam balls and I think that's probably the best known product that you guys make. Right the Kiwi crate. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that's our flagship line. So qe crate is geared for early elementary age kids. So five to eight and it's very project base for Kiwi crate. There are at least two different projects and it's usually one that's a science and engineering focused project and one. That's more be more of an art in creativity designed focus project. So let's say one project overall. It's about arcades and one project might be you create a mechanical arcade cloth that you can actually grab things with and the other side of the crate might be a project where you're making your own yarn pom Pom Creatures, and then you're actually taking your claw, you're trying to grab those creatures as well as whatever else is around your house too. So it's a combination of discoveries along with hopefully A. Little Bit of delight and a whole bunch of fun which I love and tell me I i. know that you launched this in twenty eleven and at the time I guess you were like you were in charge of the fashion portfolio. For Ebay. How did the idea come to you? So it was born mainly out of personal needs. So my my career has spanned consumer products and technology mostly ECOMMERCE. So it started my career in India proctor and gamble and then had been at pay pal at. Ebay but when we started the company, so two thousand eleven, my kids, my oldest two kids were almost three and almost five and I really want to give them especially the hands on activities. It was a way for them to really see themselves as producers and not just a passive consumers as kids who could actually kind of problem solve and make something, and so I started to pull together different and inspiration and I was like, Oh, my gosh, is taking a long time like I need to. Amortize. My effort and so I would invite friends and their kids, and one of the MOMS actually said, you should start a business around this and it was one of those things where I think long story short is that we found that there are a lot of parents who are well intentioned very busy. They want enriching activities for their kids and if it can come. To them in a convenient format from a trusted brand, and that's something that actually really resonates and then if you think about it from a business perspective, if you can get a subscription service to work, it works really well right and so if you consider all the elements of subscription service or you're considering lifetime value if you're able to drive down their cost of Acquisition then you're able to provide something that is not only valuable to the customer, but ends up being something that works really well all the business side to I I imagine when the Middlesex business for a moment I mean I imagine that when it became clear that the pandemic was GonNa shut down huge parts of the economy like most business owners you probably. Anticipated a downturn for Your Business and first of all, how did you prepare for that possibility? Well, to be completely frank, it was a little bit of madness say kind of the beginning. So we were a little bit ahead of the curve and having folks work remotely. But then as people started to shelter in place was definitely a scramble you know we had to see. What the impact would be to the business, and so we've definitely became more conservative. So very quickly we decided to basically pull back or remain conservative on marketing spend. We were looking at things like hiring and figuring out what we wanted to do that. So we held on hiring but then we're also tracking the business and what we actually started to see pretty. Quickly is a pretty decent uptick in the business. I think the combination of parents being home needing something to engage kids we happen to be a good solution, and so we started to see an uptick in the business and then accordingly had managed to the business based on that demand at a pretty dramatic to I think, right? Yeah. So I think you had mentioned. I kind of in the beginning that we shipped out over twenty million crates now, and so if you look at the first ten million crates, we hit that Mark Actually in January twenty nineteen, and then in the next eighteen months or so we actually shipped out another ten million crates and you can imagine kind of the celebration of the business and some of that. Is Because of acceleration that we saw on the business given the pandemic and the demand that was their I'm not surprised spoke with the CEO of dream box who told us that they have seen a doubling of on boarding on onto their platform it's a math platform for elementary school kids. I spoke to Sal Khan a few days ago of founder, the Khan Academy. I mean, they're seeing record numbers of students on their platform I mean as you have seen this kind of surge in demand, how have you been able to meet that demand? I mean, for example, have you had any challenges sourcing supplies? Yeah. So we've definitely had different challenges associated with with meeting the demand I. Think the great thing is that our team has been incredibly responsive and making sure that we shoring supply chain putting in the appropriate orders to make sure that we had the inventory available and I think when it's kind of regular times. To a certain extent, it's almost like your utilities or you know you expect the water to be there in the electricity work and similarly expect that you're going to have product to ship, and so we had to be very proactive about making sure that some of these things that we may have taken for granted and pass were there available to us that we could actually serve the community fulfillment was definitely another area that we had to really shore. Up and make sure that we have the capacity and then customer care I. Mean Obviously we WanNa do an excellent job of serving the customer and making sure that their questions are answered etc and so there was a certain amount of capacity that we were planning for in March April Etcetera May June, and so we had actually scaled add up pretty significantly. Let's go to some questions we're getting in from folks watching system cows, Zimmer he asks via twitter. How do you develop your kids and how do you test them with kids? Yeah. So we have interestingly to product design and development teams. So we have a physical product design and development team, and then we have a digital. So the digital is creating ecommerce platform or content platform. So the software and then our physical product design team is really comprised of folks with mechanical engineering backgrounds, industrial design. We have someone who actually worked on space satellite system. This is, and so these are the folks who are accepting the different projects that could to the kids prototyping testing, etc, and a big part of what we've done at Kiko even since you started it in my garage actually is that we are always testing but children. So in every office that we've had, we have a sizable room and four to eight times a week kids are coming in to test the products at various stages and that is. Something that is absolutely critical for us. We may assume that a project may be engaging. It may not. We may assume that a material is something that is malleable enough for preschoolers hands, but it may not be, and so it's just a critical step in. So as we've actually been working remotely, that was a big challenge to figure out, and so it's been pretty amazing. We quickly decided to actually purchase three D. Printers, laser cutters, etc that we. Then distributed to different product designers, and then on the testing side, we ended up actually either shipping or having a hand off locations for kids to pick up and test materials, and then do them via video conference and so we actually ask for different camera angles to see what the kids are doing because depending on the age of the kid it's not so much that they're going to tell you what's going on you actually have to observe. What's going on in? So that's definitely been an area where we've had to figure out how to get things

I like whistleblowing. have to see these things to let the sunshine in. And and I have questions from listeners. Is it okay to to pepper you with them? You're. Good so so many questions, and before we get to questions, some words from sponsors of the show who make it possible to donate to a cause each week and this week will researching I learned of a lecture. Our guest gave citing some extremely hurtful racist tobacco advertising in an effort to teach students about how big industries use systemic racism as a weapon, and he read off the names of a few of the brands that many people in attendance were deeply hurt to hear a loud and Lee released a statement, saying it was in effort to illuminate the wrongness of the messages saying quote. My whole career has been devoted to exposing analyzing in condemning Roy. And White Privilege and I wanted to support the National Black Law Students, association, who spoke out about the incident and educated so many on the pain that words can cause even in historical and scholastic context so this week I'm choosing a donation will be going to them and I support the shared goal of dismantling systemic racism and I think organizations who work to keep all less ignorant especially when it comes to intentions versus impact, which is so important. Dr Proctor also wanted to support saving black lives dot org, which is the African American Tobacco, Control Leadership Council which educates the public about tobacco products and their effects on black. American and African immigrant populations. Populations and he's been working closely with them for years, so donation goes to them, and why not? Let's do a third donation is important topic. It's GonNa go to the Public Health Advocacy Institute. They use the civil justice system to improve public health by focusing on litigation, targeting tobacco, industry products and unhealthy foods and deceptive health marketing. Maybe jade eggs I'm not sure but deceptive gambling practices, also all to advance public health and social justice, so a lot of great donations is weak and a lot of ignorance on all of our parts, but what's important is the willingness to learn so those donations were made possible by sponsors. Who may hear about now? Who Do, you have a painting project. You've been meaning.

Maybe we were joking and Craig's exist I don't think anybody's ever win the lower thirty in the DC international same horse. I sure would he hadn't how about that. I'll tell you what you you're going to send us into the record books well. It's funny. I E Wendy Laurel Fraternity. It was five five and a half on the grass you know of course trying to get the racist coughed up after being Kinda for twenty years so but it was just kind of funny. You know you gotta get giggle out of it anyway so well he he's been good. I mean so you've had you had a couple of different a couple of different occasions. I mean the trip to the trip to May Dan. I mean the feel that that ah that that was not worth not worth it in retrospect or not. Well you know the whole deal in California have the China this horses overcome them screwed him up. You know he was definitely you know there was racism then they wouldn't run and they quit running down the hill and the trip by Dan was really because we couldn't run in California kept cancelling the race and you know the maze in how things will make you make bad decisions sometime. In May Dan he'd have been fine but I I thought as going to the desert to run on the turf and I figured I'd get firm turf that Hail. They wander decor per day. It was soggy course I've run on over here other than but Breeders Cup last year so that's how that worked out interesting and you know he he's certainly a horse. It is versatile. You bring up you. Bring up the downhill. Course I mean I it's six and a half but it really plays longer and ah he's he's a miler essentially yeah well you know last year you win the state down the hill and you asked me if I ran him in the Breeders Cup where I'd rather run and a my plan was down the hill all year you know powers to be decided after all these gear that it's unsafe to run down the hill we we know what we think those powers to be and you know well. There's let that slide yeah because it it's just it's such a different equation. Ask Horses you know to to sprint a sharp. You know five five and a half I it's it's a different horse. It's a different equation. I mean there are some horse. There's a you know one thing about it or good. Screener can do it in in a good miler to do it. stormy liberal has no problem running five eight or five and a half California flag was that type that won the Breeders Cup run five but it definitely puts a lot more horses in pledge well a coming off that trip to mountaineer ear where he went the the Mile Seventy win the speakers cup Fergal Lynch and really he's got to be applauded Tom. I thought he gave it was like a it was like bumper bumper pool. He absolutely timed the move perfectly yeah. He's actually road in good an ad they run and fast together. E set the American record in that race mindset track record and this one which you know the American records Kinda funny because it's a Mile Alad seventy. Where do they run that Park Delaware floral yeah? It's only thank up but it's still a lotta horses run run faster than anybody just like a a lotta horses run a mile on the turf at Laurel so now this was this was really a beautiful trip and you know he he moved on the turn and ensnare the leader at the time mccague and glorious empire and at the same time if he moves earlier he probably ends up susceptible to frontier market who was running late. You know only thing is you know he's got outside blinker so he probably went and seeing those horses. you know why they price me about this race. If I've always thought he had is good a three six tenths of a mile our run is anybody in the country and he wins a lot of rights 'cause when he makes his move he makes it like now and he's very handy and and he's got that little quick I thought he had a big bigger. Sustain run their day more like three eight which is unusual and he did flow little bit the wire but he's only saying horses went by. Where does this leave you with him because he is he on a par with the top turf milers in your mind well? Maybe we'll see it's my decision because I don't think he has points to get into Breeders Cup but he's also set two track records showed okay. These numbers were good. you know we'll see he's a fast horse and he's win. Seven stakes and you know circe am knocking the earnings earnings are careening upward. Let's see what did he make. what do you make excite by six seventy. Now you know twenty times the his records pretty good on a firm turf going mile or six and a half mile and a sixteenth speaks pretty good horses if you go back so you know I think he deserves to run but one day okay. I you know I didn't ask. They're not GONNA ask me to pick the field well it and the mile. The mile always draws a big crowd. Yes yes have you toy just the peop- might be Pisa a dozen lines. Have you got any further with him. Distance wise is if you tried them a little longer just a smile in sixteen. It's not worth. It's not worth writing down. Maybe down the road you you know you might try go a little farther. He's a city zip so I always thought he was a sprinter is mother was a screener Meyler. She wind going a mile but she he also win the Mattie twice but you know maybe as he matured now the race the other day made me think about it a a little more relaxed so well into fast pace and sustain run that I hadn't seen him before well. You WanNa talk about a sustained run of success. This is of course you mentioned the mother broken dreams. We Talk How many times we talk about her. Tommy over the over the years ver- of her nice career and before her she was a daughter of our dreamer yeah well you know like I said every time I run this first thing in any wins and everything I think Mr Lamb and and I also think you know he had the six day and everything and I think that baseball the bad horses the fair because each family didn't have by Brunner's they had one or two run by bad points what well and it's funny. You say that because it's it's it's a weird situation. Caribou club was was broken dreams. His first foal and the things haven't gone as well for her since him yeah. Well you know I've got a three year. Old now can run but he he liked the family. They all tend to. You know that he's he's aren't the best in you gotta gotTa manage take care of them and let them grow up so so he was the first foal five and then she didn't have a four year old but the three year old acts likes well. She did have a four year old but he was slow he might as well not existed. you know the three year old might be okay and then we've got a yearling filly. That's all right and then we have a curling wingless looks nice nice and who was she bred back to you got me there. I was pretty good well. We'll find out we'll find out for all right. We'll find out from Craig. Well the you're under a little bit of pressure with the brother because fly the W with with with burn vertex cubs mania kind of like they are a boasted a w rallied he did he did finish second in the debut so we'll have and he's and you gelded. You made the decision to Yes well Tom but a couple the notes you've you've really had kind of a I'm not gonNA call it. A It's not a down year but bad year win in and never could've hey it hadn't rained on a drier field. Let's be honest. It's bad year but you know kind of counting on some two year. Olds and there be in two year old so you know get back to your old. If you take care of them you'll have arose but it's been a bad year and it's nice to win a race. you know that's the way it goes well. You haven't really sent out very many starters just to be honest. I it just a hundred hundred and fifteen starts. That's kind of my stables dwindled. I've got older. You know how that goes. When you get older the people forget you can train your horse but we're not going to be that old crappy guy you know he's hanging in there trying to win when we well speaking of trying to win when you can what about coming up on Friday three sided story a warfront philly making her third start yeah yeah? She's a Nice Philly. She's got she's a war front which they tend to be a little they wanna come around a little later so I'm thinking we're going to run this fairly one more time then give her a little time..

"Into the menu view there's a special special bob proctor in there where they had me do about thirty or forty five minutes. I did it. My office on a green screen. Screened just started talking about it and stop. They never edited it and they put that so. That's in there is a yeah and i think that's online for. I don't know two three a billion viewers on it. Yeah wow inspiring yeah it was it was a great. It was a great hit guy and you but you already had a successful business you. You were teaching doing seminars. I've been in the business since that was in two thousand and six. I'd been the business since nineteen sixty eight. Wow i started in nineteen sixty eight. It was nice job conan. Okay yeah yeah wow and you didn't go to high school in two months. Is i went to high school for two months john. They kicked me up. Why kick you out while i was useless. I was just going. I was going nowhere doing nothing. I mean i was a useless human being really i i had the word goal. I would think of a hockey game or soccer game was not something person would work toward. I i've been in the navy in factories and working in bars. I mean i was going nowhere and i was twenty six when i woke up but prior to that nothing was happening. I think very effective at what i do because i always figured if fish fish worked for me. It would work for anybody. I was such a loser and my world changed so dramatically that i've never it never ceased to be fascinated with what happened to me and i wanted to happen to other people and again. What do you think you're such a loser because i feel like we're brothers then well light. I've thought about that many times. I was born during the depression. I've been around a long time eighty five next week. Wow so it was born during the depression listen and the war the second world war broke out. I was just five six years old. My dad went overseas. I never really knew my dad. Had i had a brother and sister sister older brother younger so is in the middle and i had my grandmother's buddied up with my brother and my mother was my sister and i felt like i was sort of lost and your dad was gone yeah well. There was no father. I mean he come home after the war and then he was gone again so i didn't have any real direction as a kid and i i was very sin as always underweight. I has had very low self esteem. I knew nothing about who i was. Nobody ever taught me anything about that. See in those days. I mean things were tough for everybody. You know during the war during the depression your parents i guess my mother was happy just to be able to feed us and put a roof over yeah yeah now mind i just she was really a phenomenal woman because she did everything on her own and she made it happen and so my brother and sister and i talked about it we always say god bless mother because she kept going and so we look back and i think we'd good gene there. Wow what was the biggest lesson your mom tell you i think basis she taught me was to be generous. She was she was a great chooser. Generous person. I give a lotta money away. I give a lot i give i'm considered a very generous person. I think i think i learned it from her. I remember we were kids and there was a family on the street..
