"radi" Discussed on The School of Greatness
"The recognition that effort and contribution to a relationship was not always visible. So what I mean by that is, often in a relationship, we think of the breadwinner or the person who pays the bills as being the way someone contributes. Or if someone cleans and cooks, that's the way someone contributes. When you get into a relationship for a long time, you start to realize there are emotional contributions to a relationship. Absolutely. There are spiritual contributions to a relationship, which you don't get to see when your relationship is purely physical. Right. And so now when I look at relationships, I'm like, wow, radi is contributing to this relationship. Of course, financially in that, but also in this spiritual and emotional way. Yes. And in my limited understanding, if I was just moving around, I wouldn't know if that was even possible. So I think those are just a couple. There's so many. But I believe that I have grown more and learned more about myself than I would have if I wasn't, because I think I would have found a quick fix for most of my problems. Oh, everything. If it was like, you know, if I was just jumping from relationship to relationship, or just dating and not actually being committed to anyone, when there was a moment of anything getting hard, you'd just be like, oh, I don't want to deal with this. I'm going to go to the next person and have fun and just make it light and make it interesting and go out for the chase and get that high again. When I started the relationship with Martha, I made a conscious decision, realizing that I was the problem for every previous relationship that I was the common denominator for things not working out. I said, let me try something different. Let me not dive into what I've always done, which is the sexual chemistry first. Because that clouded my mind from seeing the person fully or seeing more of the person I should say. And that decision to remove that for the first, you know, months of us kind of seeing each other and getting to know each other was so powerful for me because I was like, do I want to, I remember asking some friends in the past, I go, if you guys didn't have sex, would you still be together? And a lot of them are like, no. Okay, so remove sex from the relationship or move sexual chemistry from the relationship, would you want to spend quality time with this person consistently? Are you adding value to their life? Are they adding dietary real life? Another person said, you know, could you spend 10,000 meals with this person? Because that's what's going to be like if you're getting married and you're with them for a long time, 10,000 meals, it's an interesting enough. And when we jump into from my personal experience, when you jump into sexual chemistry first, the foundation is usually a little shakier. And also if you're doing that with multiple people, it's hard to build a strong foundation with one. And you're never really getting that piece. It's kind of there's always something shaky, right? Well, I mean, the study showed that, too, that when you engage in a physical relationship with someone, the chemicals that are released after sex make you feel closer to them when you're not actually closer to the 100%. So you haven't really done the work for a deep value based intimacy, but you're feeling the high. And you can feel that with people again and again and again. And that's why we get more attached to people that we have sex within that way.
"radi" Discussed on Radio Survivor Podcast
"S what you think as conclude for the radio program. What do you think the radio audience should know what is the what. What is the lesson for for people. What are what what was missing from like the conventional wisdom of what hip hop and radio meant to each other in this era so one of the things that i like to think about in my research is a reaction rate in in many ways. My react in some ways. My my research is a reaction to a quote right. It's a chuck d quote from you know this song. Radio suckers never play me from the one thousand nine hundred eighty seven thousand nine hundred eighty seven song by public enemy and part of what i want to say is like no radio actually did play a significant amount of hip hop so by nine thousand nine hundred ninety top forty playlist or about twenty five percent about twenty five percent of songs on top forty playlists. Have some sort of rapped vocals in them whether that's a short little verse right where the bridge used to be in the nineteen eighties. Maybe they've inserted a rap. I mean the whole thing's wrap who knows but nine hundred. Ninety radio was playing a ton of rap. And part of what i want to think about it. I research is is what that does right. So if we move hip hop into thinking about it as part of as a commodity as part of the commercial radio industry as part of the way that you know thing that radio stations make money. I think that tells us a lot about people's attitudes towards hip hop and also maybe helps hold the radio industry accountable for many of the things that hip hop has become and not to say that hip hop has become anything bad but simply to kind of illustrate the ways that radi the that the business model of the radio industry has influenced hip hop up until the present era..

"Hugs a day for maintenance and twelve twelve. Hugs a day for growth. Nobody gets those hugs i. I'm lucky if i get a hug a week so my sister. And i like we start with off to finding that out with like shall we talk more and it's honesty. It's it's changed everything i feel. I feel so good and i. I'm trying to make an effort to hug more with jamie. I've talked about this and so we're making a conscious effort to be more physical in a non sexual way heads resting on legs and like hugging for a bit longer than usual. And yes i fucking uncomfortable and like a tiny little tap on the shoulder or the arm will have my mind like fucking firing off. Oh my god sexual sexual. Oh my god turn on this big deal when it's like it shouldn't have to be a big deal but as because dad wasn't around and mom never hugged and it's learning stephania. Yeah so cool right but learning sufferings of it. It can really hurt. But it's the hurt that you need to process and move through to understand. Baloch all makes much fucking sentence even my closest girlfriends. I can't sit there cuddling them. Like a like a little cut up okay. Now we're done like i'm i'm good. Now yeah oh sake. Anita fucking bleep button for that housing. It's the new. Jesus christ take a shot every time read so fascinating alcohol poisoning immediately. So yeah you actually. I feel like we should touch upon your tickling fetish. Because this took you a really long time to how about like. Because i mean we've been doing come curious for like seven years or something now and it was only until maybe like a year maybe less than a year. It's almost less than a year. i would say yes. It's something that i've battled with. I mean i've had it since. I was like must be like even younger like young young young. Like maybe five something through through situations because tickling happens time which i do not condone. I do not condone nonconsensual tickling without there now. I don't like it when parents to kids with people do it to the people. I am not okay with that. And i think it's wrong but maybe not without anti league. Well that's thing it's a nonconsensual act and if somebody hates it it's not nice it's torture and it's not and it's like it's it's almost like an acceptable form of like physical physical nonconsensual touch like why. Why have we created this. Why is it okay. I find it like a weird one because with all all my partners in the past. I like guys love tickling me. Yeah and i've never said once that it was okay to tickle way. Same time i'm like i don't know why like except pater. Knock into like. I don't hate it enough to be. Don't ever do this to me again like seriously but you intimacy laugh and it does do good things. It does run. Yeah absolutely yeah. Yeah but you can say the same about sex. But you wouldn't ever accept anybody like nonconsensual fucking so and i get really uncomfortable. I see it so uncomfortable. Not just because it's sexual. I mean probably mainly because it's sexual but because like i'm just like why you invading their personal space. I sorta talk how. I watched the talk for once you. Yeah would you believe and it. Was this office mom who was talking about consent and she was lying issues like Do you want to eat anymore in. The kid was like okay. Do you want to join a like. She was hugging him. Or do you want to anymore. Like shall we something that we can search. Okay and then. She tickled him like she was like. Do you want anymore tickling. And he was like no and she said okay. And i was like that is the fucking parenting that i like to see. It is asking child for consensus. Because you're the addo and you think you know best doesn't mean you can push it and do something nonconsensual. Just your a again rolls into consent. My dad used to tickle. Made i way too much and i would physically like i would be in a situation where i'm kicking like. I am like being physically violent back because i was in so much discomfort. And that's unacceptable. I don't think. I don't think we should accept that. Think it should be allowed but then again you hate it now. It could have easily turned into a fish. Yeah yeah yeah what she's much it's like a wit because you're right i liked. I liked the intimacy. I like i kind of like the fact that people wanna do it because it's like cheeky. Yeah see this is probably you know like diving in deeper. This is probably why it became a fetish. Because i didn't receive love from my dad that i wanted so like that intimate touch was like an extreme version of that love latching onto it then turns into like oh. That's the kind of love that i one and therefore now older. I'm not gonna be able to find that from. I doubt. I don't want that from my dad so i find a sexual or romantic on. I wouldn't be comfortable if a friend tickled me like. I've had two requests on my only fans on like. Oh can you frontier. Who you make a tickle video. And i'm not comfortable with that like it's it's sexual for me it's too much. Yeah and that's something that is. Yeah so it again just figuring over our and it makes me feel so so good to learn all and i realized how fucking like freud radi was ultimately he was a fucked up man but like a.

The Power Of Poetry
"So blake auden welcome. Schmancy the ios. Thank you so much for coming on. Thank you very much for having me poetry. I'm very excited to talking poetry. I feel like. I haven't been waiting enough poetry but anyway tennis about yours and when you started rising yeah absolutely. I started writing when i was quite young. Mark mark fathers in the military. And so i grew up with wolf poetry and i i just became fascinated by it by its ability to convey so really strong and deep emotions. And so i've been reading in on doubling for twenty two years and by then even really taking it seriously for about two years. I sat my instagram account february. Twenty nineteen ammon dots. When i saw really started trying to make him a career. What kind of reaction have you had on instagram. And in general in the wo t o poetry. It's been Sa- brady surprising. If i'm going to start you know. I suppose you never you stop these things in the The other people will enjoy them and monette may view get. Some read was awesome. Nice comments. But i i've been completely blown away by by how people have responded to it. People say to me with the time that my poetry helps them to process emotions and mental health issues heartbreaking loss and not every time i hear it it means you actually well to me. I think i've been very lucky in that. Regard does depends in the first place to help you with that mental health. Stuff will just generally kind of the going on at the moment. Yeah i think it does. I mean visit certain certainly kasichs about about writing. I think it's about so of all forces you to organize your emotions and kind of give them a gram to to stand on and on. I think that about price s helps you come to terms with what you might be experiencing the state of the world with the mainland or whatever it might be and that's the real payoff. It's is seeing other people react to it and particularly people fail like a con thy kalis how feeding or they struggled to talk about it and would just you know they put it into words. They often tell me that. I'm doing that for them. And for me back only makes make like whatever i go through. It's worth it. Because i know i'll be out of tune into something that helps someone else. Can we talk about your own experiences of mental health. Because i know that you've spoken a bit about your experience of anxiety. Windy anxiety can stopped fear. In what what does that mean fee. So i have been anxious to some degree harming mike my life when i was a kid i remember i and i think a lot of this comes from having a dot in the military and to worry incessantly. If you know if my mum was late from to pick me up from the childminders from school. I would immediately stop in. Kenosha must have been in a car crash or something awful happened. And i remember at a young age On the other night. Seven or eight. And when i was in bed if i if i heard the front door i would assume that must be my my parents leaving to run away or something. Say i've always had know. Not kind of always worried. Probably unnecessarily more than an average kid should they and bet ahsan ads and probably in the last. Ten years is gotten progressively worse. And to the point where. I get anxious about we'll seemingly nothing you know. I caught composting. Garon on what is the might be causing it so it's been something i've struggled with for a long time now. So what if you saw this helps and dealing with so i mean writing is certainly one of them off in general. I'm a musician. As while i have a degree in music so i always turn to to the to try and make sense of this stuff that otherwise. I've tried everything. I've been to therapy. Which didn't help necessarily in lessening not. But it did help me understand the recall of it and i'm wear these things might have come from which was i mean. It was fascinating if nothing else am. I meditate every day dot starts really helpful and breathing exercises or this kind of stuff but i think the me the radi bake change came so i noticed probably two years ago you the anxiety was slowly taking lots of things away from eisai stopped performing music. I socialize less and less and i didn't. I hadn't been on holiday a about fifteen years at that point and i was i was essentially just spending everyday in the house too too scared of a panic attack to go and do anything. I found that the anxiety. Just find new things to make you anxious about if you if you remove or the sunny mike experience. He probably removed the trigger. It would just got replaced by something else so suddenly watching films with make anxious whereas it didn't before and so i saw you know what it's going to make me on kisses anyway then as just do i want so i started. I started writing about it. And i- i characterize anxieties wolf in my writing something that you know stokes me so i got tattooed quite large on the back of my left hung where i can see every day and not kind of reminds me the you know what enough is enough. I'm just gonna do the things and if the makes me anxious he makes me unctuous fiber panic attack panic attack very they can do about it so i'm just gonna down and live my life and oddly enough thought has really helped. The last two years have been much better.

Thank applying ended up playing piano. Chris x plane with chris. Before and yeah as i say he is a piano player. He what he he doesn't think about playing the piano. He thinks about playing the song and i had worked with him on a track on a life. Full of farewells. In it's It's it's a track coach. She seems to forget you. And i remember how we did. That and chris recorded his his tight end. He said to the producer at the time. I was out in the control room when he did his and he said a really. Don't think like that. I think i played too much and paul said well. Now it sounds pretty good to us in here and kristen Would you mind coming in here and singing at the same time the clan e show thing you know pull. The producer said well. We won't waste this. Maybe they'll be something here in this. So we set up a mock so you can actually hear identically. Apply these tracking your show but you can actually hear the door slamming when poll over us awards.

A Conversation With Alice Liveing
"Welcome back to the podcast Alice Living How are you? I am good. Thank you. It's great to be back. Thank you for having me. It's so so nice to see your face even over a video call you all choice Lee Sunshiney so. I have no doubt that these feel good habits that you're going to share with me going to be excellent. Why hopes I? I did later when we start stars, I think some of them are going to be fairly obvious. But like you said, it's a little about the reason behind this hype now, to get some good good rationalists I've chosen them. Yes and you've been on the show before which is to refresh your memory I. Mean I see you all the time because I'm always locked into my entire saved saved feed on my instagram. It's all of your workout because they aren't brilliant and every time anyone messes me and says what workout so you doing I just say don't ask me scholar she's qualified and she does embarrassed so you are. A fitness influence well, I mean that doesn't cover it because you're a qualified personal trainer. I mean the thing is it's so hard to give myself a time to let you know when you sit down dinner parties like what do you do and I'm like well, how long have you go because? Things but I guess my background was in musical HR's professional dancer, and then I transitioned not to become a personal trainer and I guess fitness is always made like the main body of what I do and it's my passion and my love and but as well as by I I also want poke cost and I. I've written three books on. The also things. So it's kind of a reading barry job but yeah, I would say I guess a lot of what people know before is being a fitness influence on instagram massage. So yeah, I'm happy I'm happy cooled that you all announcement slasher you like a lot of people I. Know They can't just say I'm a broadcaster because there's so many layers to it. I know I, actually dread being asked idea sometimes sunlight all golden point now and it also depends on the crowd you know. My boyfriend's like finance events. I'm like. I'm an old. because. I should just be proud of day but unlike. What to say? No it's a funny one. Isn't it? You do have to play for the crowd? It's like when you tweak. For whoever you're sending it to. Exactly. Right. So I can't wait to get stuck into these. So where where are you because? I know you've been very organized as well and you actually have written down. So what is your? Start date at the end of the day I've sort of done. Throughout the day and I would say that like ultimately, these are the things that are genuinely do day today. So I'm not trying to do like crazy unrealistic things, i. just want things that I actually adhere to every day and I would say that my number one thing and the thing that makes me a nicer better person. Every day is getting good sleep I'm actually like really. Protective of my sleep hours. AM I. Don't sleep in I'm not someone that has lions or anything like that. I'm more have to be in bed early because I usually wake up about Hawk five six o'clock every day. So I need to make sure that I'm getting a solid seven to eight hours sleep every night, and if I don't get that Mike can be. So, I think that like I am I guess that's because number of things we know that sleep is inherently linked to all recovered from exercise and I'm someone who does a lot of exercise. So for that reason, sleep becomes really important me because I know that that's one of the key ways in which I can recover for my trading be able to train harder in my neck session. But also I think just generally like. I I love the idea of like everyday being a fresh stall and Mike Sleep. Just putting everything bed wake up the next day and it's like, right? We have a clean slate. Let's go again. And then someone that tries to linger on what happened the day before or the week before whatever I'm kind of I'm pretty good at being able to. saw each day as I mean to go kind of have that as a fresh start. So yeah, my number one thing was definitely getting a good night's sleep I'm I know that's easier said than done. I know so many people who radio I'm going to have seventy radi struggle with sleep, and as soon as we start to tweet sleep hygiene and get them getting better other itself, it does make a huge difference. But I think if you have as a priority and it's something that you try and set a goal to try and get into bed a little bit earlier, make sure that you are. Not. Sneezing your mom as well. That's a big bog bed i. have I never ever snooze alarm. I know we have a big kind of like. We have a big. Argument about it, but we sort of he's a big snooze. He'll sneeze his retail whereas I cannot snooze not all my have to get up straight away. On it's really funny like in the mornings I'm always often ready way before him. But yeah, I think just just setting aside like some time to have proper decent late, not being on your phone watching TV is is what makes me a better person?
How Nomination Of Amy Coney Barrett To Supreme Court Might Affect U.S. Climate Action
"Environmental Policies Almost always end up in court these days and several of president trump's most contested chart changes to environmental policy are likely headed to the Supreme Court if Conservative nominee amy, Coney Barrett confirmed, it could have a major impact on how the US treats climate change as NPR's Jeff Brady explains it's difficult to predict how Amy Coney Barrett will rule on specific cases. Environmental Law was not her focus as a professor and not something she dealt with a lot during her time on the Court of Appeals for the seventh circuit. Her judicial philosophy does offer clues discussed that when her nomination was announced, a judge must apply the law as written. Judges are not policymakers and they must be resolute and setting aside any policy views. They might hold Barrett's judicial philosophy show skepticism of government and favors. Deregulation over-regulation says, Harvard law professor and former Obama administration official Jody Freeman I think generally speaking it's GonNa be a corporate court good for business good for corporation. Freeman says Barrett is skeptical federal agencies stretching their authority under laws where Congress hasn't given them clear direction. But Freeman, says agencies need to have flexibility. Even when Congress passes new laws are always ambiguities they're always things congress doesn't fade there always is new science new understanding new risks, new problems, new data. And it's impossible to specify each and every small kind of decision that the agencies make and sometimes agencies have to use existing laws to address new problems like climate change. That's what the Obama Administration did after failing to convince Congress to pass legislation focused on the polarizing topic, the EPA turned to the decades-old Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases a two thousand seven. Supreme. Court case Massachusetts versus the EPA determined carbon dioxide could be regulated under the act. It became an important environmental ruling and now some worry a more conservative Supreme Court could overturn or weaken it case Western. Reserve University Law Professor Jonathan Adler. Unlikely on the question of whether greenhouse gases are pollutant, but he says it's more likely on the constitutional issue of standing whether Massachusetts and the other states had the right to sue the federal government standing inclement cases can be a challenge and I think based on what we've seen on the seventh circuit. A Justice Barrett. Certainly won't make that challenge. Any easier Adler Conservative agrees that bear it a skeptical of agencies overreaching their authority but says that doesn't mean Barrett is hostile to addressing climate change just that Congress needs to pass more specific laws constant do a lot of that these days but but yes. I'm old fashioned in that I. think that's what we had members of Congress and that's what we elect senators to do this appeals to conservatives like Tom Pile with the American energy alliance he supported Barrett's nomination on his podcast was duke it out where it belongs in Congress you guys win congratulations expanded to include co two regulation. You got it but Reverend Lennox Yearwood with the hip hop caucus says, he wants a different kind of justice who will lead on fixing big problems like climate change is a lifetime position and so that's why you have to have people in those positions who have a world view. that. Is One that Debbie will go by the Constitution. But also understands the nuances of the world we live today year would is among those who say they want the Senate to wait on a confirmation vote until after the presidential election. Jeff Radi? NPR
Serena Williams upset by Victoria Azarenka at US Open
"So. Niamey's soccer took place in the final and that point. ENACT COVERAGE ON BBC radio we switched from our digital station sports, extra five, which is the network station and. We went big on Serena. Williams against Victoria as a Aranka. Which I have to say I started to think well, it can't possibly live up to what we've just seen in you just Kant. And the first point of the match. Serena. Williams on leashes a four hundred. The almost didn't. It couldn't be tracked by the the camera because it went so fast and it just went out but it felt like such a statement immediately, the I am going to just destroy every tennis bullet comes near me. And I felt like that my of slight rattled as a Aranka just the the shift force integration that was that was hit with. An immediately to breaks of serve to. Serena. Four games to love she led. Won The set six one. and. I don't know about you. But my name was it feels like we've just got an a time machine and back ten twelve years to when Williams was in twenty. It's the way she was running the movement. She was all she was moving right now soccer she's nearly thirty nine and she's hitting the living daylights out of the ball an and it really wobbled as Anka who started just Tara what did you think? Katherine Oh. Yeah it was blistering utterly blistering and I think it was a a mock of the respect that Serena Williams has. Victoria as rancor because her starts Serena have been Radi. Ready. Sluggish. And she's played some really good plays and she says improper tests but I think she needs she simply could not get away with that today. I think a mindset shifted completely. Am I don't know how I don't I genuinely don't know how you can just sort of decide i. I can't get away with doing that today. So I won't. Thing why you why couldn't you trick yourself over into thinking that every day but overseas? Just doesn't psychology doesn't work like that but. She. Yeah. She couldn't afford to give Victoria as. That lead and take her time to work her way into the match as she has been doing. and so she went to completely the other end of the spectrum and made. Pretty much as blistering start tennis match as I have seen as I've seen Serena making in recent memory, it was. It made my eyes Bogle out of my head. At moments. Really did it was like she? Convinced herself that Seraing was Sharapova. I mean how many times we've seen Serena come out with that intensity and that that or against Charipova and just make mincemeat of her certainly within the first set, and that's what she did to as their income in the first set she was. Unbelievably good as you said, crunching the ball moving fantastically and not allowing as incur any chance to set or what. So ever because she was serving well. So kind of dominating the points on her serve and then she was returning as in cassette could serve so strongly and. This was the Serena that I've kept expecting to see this tournament but i. I was beginning to doubt whether she had that level of tennis in her to be honest because I thought I thought we might see Sloan. Stevens I, thought we might see it against Zachary thought we might see against Perron Covi-, kept expecting. To raise her level in this tournament and. She was saving it for today it seemed and as you said I, don't know how you can turn that tap on and off and have control. Today I just. Will be extra. Mom is lengthy. It was like the very revealing candid. Enlightening. pre-match interview with Victoria as Aranka. where she was asked about her poor record against Serena in grand, slams, what do you need to do to get the win tonight? Play better. or or I? will she treated about for match interview with the contempt? It deserves it was. It was great.
The Brain-Boosting Benefits of Exercise with Ryan Glatt
"Welcome to the broken brain podcast I'm your host. Droop ruin and each week by team, and I bring on a new guest who rethink can help you improve your brain help feel better and most importantly live more. This week's guest is Ryan. Ryan is a personal trainer and brain health coach with over a decade of experience in the health and fitness industries. He currently works alongside clinicians and researchers to study the facts of cognitively. Enhanced and comprehensive exercise plants at the Pacific Brain Health Center, here in Lovely Santa Monica California Ryan constantly seeks to learn about the health neuroscience, research and Practical Strategies both health coaching and personal training in context, which is why we brought him here, Ryan has pursued education from aiming clinks the brain I training institute, the Neuroscience Academy that Kaddoumi for brain, health and performance and many other places. He's currently enrolled in. In a Master's applied neuroscience program at King's College of London, he actively consults with companies who leverage exercise for brain health and educates and fitness professionals with the first course to comprehensively address exercise and brain health called the brain health trainer, course talk more about that later on in which he's educated over a thousand health and fitness Professionals Ryan welcome to the brain podcasts. Thanks for having me drew and you also. And people really loved it. That's we've set the intention. We did a documentary by the way. If anybody hasn't hasn't watched that documentary before a broken bring to. Click on the show notes. We'll make it available for anybody who hasn't seen, and you can sign up and check it out and see some of Ryan's recommendations. rebuilt on today's conversation so. We set out the intention when we first did that interview that we wanted to do an interview for the podcast. I'm glad it happened at the first interview that I'm doing in person in the world of. Semi Corentin and social distancing so Thank you for coming into the office. It's an honor. Thanks for having me so I wanNA start off with something which is I want to talk about dance? DANCE REVOLUTION So tell US anybody who doesn't know what it is. Tell us what it is, and why he became passionate about. Yeah, so dance dance. Revolution is a video game. It's an extra game. Extra Games are things that incorporate. And Gaming And or active video games it was followed by the success of like Nintendo. We for instance that became very popular dance dance. Revolution's interesting because it was popularized when I was a kid. Probably before that I think in the eighties and nineties, and it's essentially a game where you're controller is a pad that you stand on in the middle is you're standing place? You have an Arrow pointing forward pointing backwards to left and went to the right. There's arrows coming up from the bottom of the screen, and you have this answer key at the top. Top with those different directionally facing arrows, and it's to music, and it was a Japanese video game developed by Nami, and it was super popular in Arcades at home on the playstation, two and I grew up as a very overweight sedentary kid I had a pretty severe concussion in preschool, and so that created some concussion induced adhd so I was addicted to video games, and I think I would then have met the criteria for video game addiction now, which is like it wasn't every day, but it was like four hours a day of video gaming. into early call of duty before it was like an e sports thing so if I kept on it, I could probably been pretty well right now. Playing golf duty but I actually came across the home version of dance dance revolution when I was a kid in high school, actually no middle school early middle school and I lost a lot of weight playing that in my living room and it got me into. That got me to lose weight and it was motivating had all the elements we might talk about being important for an exercise program that is sensitive to brain health. And then it got me into the gym, and when I was in high school I joined a gym across from my high school, started weightlifting, watching personal trainers, we can go into that later, but essentially kick-started my personal health, an interest in fitness, and with that fitness that is cognitively enhanced meaning that I wasn't on an exercise bike, watching the news or staring into space I was cognitively engaged in that program since then dance dance revolution has been present. Among a lot of research context and neuro rehabilitation in older adults. It's not really that accessible anymore. You can't just get it off the shelf as much as you could. Previously, but it's really paved the way for a whole industry of active video gaming extra gaming. And it has spun off also clinical or serious extra gaming games that are used for health and clinical contexts such as some of the solutions. We use it the Pacific Brain Health Center. For the listeners who are like way, why are we starting the conversation video game? This all make sense so you know in reading about your story and getting a chance to get to know you over the last year, or so as we've been introduced by our mutual friend, Dr Shawn Patel who's a regenerative medicine doctor here in Los Angeles who's been on the podcasts before linked to that. I got a chance to see how your struggle as child especially with weight fitness and being sedentary. You found something you found something that created joy inside of you, and that's actually really related to a big part of what you teach right now we'll start off with the basics and we'll talk about what brain health coaches and some of the science of it, but you found something passionate that you that got you excited to move. Move something that you enjoyed and I. think that such an important thing as simple as it sounds. This video game was the thing that got started. That was ultimately the thing that starting your journey down this pathway of understanding the power of really what exercise can do for the brain, so let's start there. Let's start off with the basics you know. We've done so many episodes on the power of exercise, but as a refresher. Tell US why exercise is so important and what it does for the brain. Yeah, and there's been an explosion of research and media coverage about this I. Like to say that the mainstream popularity around exercise. The brain was really kick started by the book spark by Dr John Radi ever grateful for the work. He's done in popularizing that and twenty eighteen, the second most popular Ted Talk. In that year was Dr Wendy Suzuki talking about exercise in the brain and a lot of mainstream coverage, and you know in New, York Times and medium covering on boosting these posts on exercising, the brain has become very popular, and that's amazing, because it's also jumping on the kind of. The coattails of neural plasticity research showing that the brain can change. I think this audience has been very well presented that information right we to our brains were fixed. We were taught in high school. They have a certain amount of brain cells. Will Never. It's all downhill from there and it turns out. That's not true exactly. Neuro plasticity, so the brain's ability to functionally or structurally change. In response to experiences,
Video appears to show a white woman setting fire to Wendy's in Atlanta where Rayshard Brooks was killed
"Talking about the police shooting in Atlanta Georgia Friday night riot Saturday night the Wendy's burned by some white girls the some of those some of the audio is actually a little bit humor with the bystander apparently a black guy watching this white girl try to torch the Wendy's and he's like don't give this one else there's that making video of this white girl trying to not doing a very good job but I guess eventually got it set on fire real good and there's a ten thousand dollar reward out for this handy for looking white girl who was there being an arsonist because you know they're not very well adjusted something like that it is a another at that no matter how you slice it another tragic situation with a twenty seven year old man Richard Brooks who was shot to death on Friday night drunk driving stop failed to preserve radi testa place went to put the cuffs on him to arrest him for his drunk driving offense he decided instead to start punching them and fighting the man down and that was a pretty capable of doing that and two police officers fighting and everybody's on the ground there there did at least minor injuries being doled out and and brochure Brooks grabbed the taser from one of the police officers that tasers going up he's running away the taser goes off again and Mister Brooks is shocked and and he was killed and and it was one of these situations where I gotta tell you know we all sit here like referees watching instant replays on on these these circumstances because everything's on video now and I watch about an hour and a half worth of body cam video yesterday and and I I don't know him did he did he have to shoot Richard Brooks when he's running away did you have to know what is the training what is the what is the normal procedure he was being perfectly reasonable during the sobriety test and so on until they went to put the handcuffs on him and told him that he was impaired and they were placing him under arrest and then a felony assault on a police officer repeated counts of stripping the place up sort of taser weapon they're evading the police running away on foot and then turning on and fight if he hadn't pulled the taser and turned and fired the taser I don't think there'd be any question and that the police officer should not have shot and and still let's look there's going to be it's going to be hotly debated there's not going to be a lot of agreement on this I can I can assure you that it's a terrible set of circumstances then came the riots and the burning of the Wendy's at the CNN crew was assaulted by the mob and their their camera was damaged or destroyed or or something and and so there is some is tab for more riots and and and it's not perfectly clear cut some eye witnesses and this is a classic example I witnesses who who saw it from afar said everything was perfectly going perfectly they're having a reasonable conversation all true until bystanders said the witness said that until they went to arrest him for nothing well they didn't go to arrest him for nothing they went to arrest him for drunk driving after going through what they call an investigation the procedure that sobriety tests and and and you know walking follow my finger and then blow into this tube and I had a failed miserably at the sobriety test he was being taken into custody because drunk driving is taken very seriously and they don't just let people go when you're caught driving drunk these days and so he was when he was being taken into custody decided to fight the police grabbed a taser and run and and it ended up being fatally shot being killed by the police now whose fault is that if that's the question that made that the answer is relay the escalating it to that judge to that level was the fault of Richard Brooks you know he's the one who assaulted the place and took off and took the taser and fired at now are in police training says that if you may be incapacitated as they buy a taser then you may lose control of your service weapon and that's very much frowned upon and if somebody's willing to beat you throw you to the ground punch you take your taser and and and pays you you should also probably assume and I think training would teach that that person would also be capable of taking your pistol from you and then your and a whole nother level of danger and and so I played audio from the fraternal order of police guy who said that in most your as the training is that a taser is a lethal confrontation because you could be incapacitated and you have a firearm and so it is according to most police training that the FOB guy said that he has a lethal encounter or a potentially lethal encounter and that and that legitimizes lethal force watching the video you might not come to that conclusion and I know I'm kind of I'm kind of angry about it to tell you the truth because I wish that this hadn't happened and and wouldn't happen but the ideas don't drive really really drunk passed out in your car in the drive through line at the Wendy's when the police come a day they told him to pull his car over there and he drove it up over the curb and crashed into the bushes and stuff and then when you're caught for drunk driving in the place got a put the cuff Sonya don't attack them and commit felony assaults on police officers and take the taser and run away shooting the taser at them all of that is behavior that is not recommended behavior at and the police officer shooting I can't get inside of his mind at that moment and know exactly what he was thinking but he had just been punched and kneed and thrown to the ground and pummeled and and was in a fight the adrenaline was pumping and piece of art police equipment was taken that can incapacitate a police officer who has a pistol and if he is incapacitated is pistol could be taken and so goes the training all right so according to the F. O. P. anyway so there we have it and and it's and it's just a horrible situation another tragic horrible situation

Music like this beautiful vagabond track by BEFFA dopson leaks ter- and indeed the leaks ter- in today at the towards the end of the show talking to us about his collaboration with barefoot doctor barefoot doctor is being with me throughout all of my Chico training talking about the message of the Taoist philosophy of nature and that we really know this. We understand this deep within ourselves and to me looking at the air element also brings in the awareness of the space around us as well as what we're breathing in what we're receiving an how the air moves as we breathe and speak and how the. Sans we create reverberate into the the around us. Creating ripples of sonic wave particles and and this is then received by other people's is. I remember seeker. That multi instrumentalist Didgeridoo player and Florida. That was saying that. It's so great to not just have ear buds for your whole body to receive the vibration of sound that your bones need this reverberation as well as your ears in your mind to receive the sonic frequency. So I love that. I mean the something to be said for like the binomial beats that really do need to be listened to in your in your ear bud to be able to play with either side of your brain but back into the air because the moment you know the elements got a bit bad pressed with pictures of people wearing masks being worried about catching you know. Droplets of virus and things which is understandable but when now beginning to uncover conflicting evidence and it does feel to me that we don't know what to believe and so we need to because across reference. Not just look at the mainstream media. That's coming in but also look what's going on. On the periphery you know. We are so blessed to have streams and streams of information coming in. But how do we know what the truth is? Well we coming back into this way of building truth and trust within ourselves so that we know what feels right so we know how it feels to feel safe in our bodies we can do and this is where the she really helps me. It's helped me Radi get won't my relationship is with the earth and last weekend. I ran off to the new forest. It's where I'm from in the UK. Here I had to convene with the trees. I had to go lean against the grandmother tree and feel her wisdom. Uis into my back and really get how she is always supported by that deep deep tap root and all the other routes around there but she's constantly plugged into the resource of the earth. A my goodness that shows the strength of her trunk on the Plethora of delightful greenery that she bequeaths love that synergy that exchange of air that we have with the trees the it was honestly you can get it. Lean against a tree. I know talk about tree hugging. But what about tree leaning this phrase leaning in well how about we lean into the trees and we lean in let ourselves feel held by the Earth beneath us. The Earth is always there and we send our roots down. We get a feeling of what that's like to really sense. The support as a as a child of the earth. The support of the earth is always there for us so that we can feel safe in our bodies and this sort of San something that barefoot talk about. When he spoke about his earliest recollection of what just the cosmic cosmic arm that it reverberated up through him. And we've got an example of this coming up later in the show when Russell League charts to us about his collaboration with barefoot doctor on his what you focus on grows album but this alm sense is feeling of a reverberation of the earth coming up through an into us to me. We can absorb the sense that coming into our bones that we feel the frequency the earth being received into a so that we can settle in we can feel nurtured and taken care of and can feel east and safety and our bodies because if we feel safer now bodies we're going to be able to trust ourselves more so we can land in the stillness at the center and it's this sort of stuff that we explore in my she going sessions online on the Thursday night on zoom. So I'd love to invite you over there or come over to also to the Chia your week facebook page. And we're looking at some other ways of interacting off that platform was world. But I'll I will keep you posted

My favourite tennis match
"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited
"radi" Discussed on The FCMFIT Podcast

Not Saying that they're all GonNa be you know even at age. Maybe I wouldn't have taken in as much or believed in it but there will be a percentage of kids of Radi will like get it will make the maybe not smoke and not drink too much and eat the right things.

No single bit corner was at that wedding and right now ninety percent of our interaction every day because they are our best friends some of our versus.

Everybody used shoes criminals politicians. But still you know the bill passionate for sure she group. These was so funny because basically I said something and you started with a sort of a threat. That twitter thread that are sort of a speech about the disgraced and this is very different between us is a super analytica is playing. Everything is just like he he has already ever finger finger out and the Radi El to be a to talk about that topic and I'm super super synthetic just stopped laughter and this is the reason why we are studying. Ride that book together and I think that our skill saw can Can match together very well because we are very different in Allah in this in this really lowered way to say you're less boring. No no no no no.

Amazon Product Photography with Danny Carlson of Kenji ROI

I guess if I lived in Bali I would probably be more enthusiastic chrome lifestyle as well so along with apparently quite a few of the US by While as an Stocksi living the dream so we had a really fantastic presentation down the summarizing the staying the three elements which you mentioned which keyword optimization key info communication and persuasive desire to Seemed like tastic three so big picture hooks to hang stuff on so the next obviously to look at it. Listing is can we dealt with woods a great Didn't catch folks. I Radi Greedy Edgy. To listen to watch even better. The presentation on the video. Formats educates amazing. FDA DOT com slash. Kenji K. E. N. J. you'll be able to find. And if she downloadable Donnie as well. So let's get into photography that and so what are the basic principles fuel product photography. So you've go to very principle driven strategy driven way of looking at words quite sure you have a similar strategy from the products. What are the first principles would be? Buy Y yes. Product photography is the most important part of an Amazon listening for the conversion rate actually converting people to sail. It's not going to get people to your listing except for the main image because you need the rescuers and everything like that but once they're on your listing that's basically their impression of your products and a lot of people will they're cutting out the wrong impression and just because they have a couple of good images doesn't mean you can get away with having one or two really terrible Just think about it this sway. You know we're human beings and we do actually judge each other based on appearance whether you like to think so or not and if you show up to work does address really nicely for seven days in a row but then on the eighth day you showed up without any pants on people are going to judge you pretty strongly based on that right. I don't think you're go that you're less Depends on what kind of job you have. I suppose. But that's the impression that you're putting if you have six really great images in any seven images just garbage edged like with your iphone and the lighting this you can barely tell what your product is right. So every single image matters on Amazon. The the second biggest principle I think people get wrong is not having a very specific purpose for every single image. Let's just say that a lot of Amazon shoppers. Do not it read. You're listening they're just GonNa read maybe your title and maybe scan the bullet points maybe scan over your description. better if it's an eight plus content or ABC description but probably. They're going to look at the photos the price and they're gonNA make a buying decision. People are lazy and was an image. You can communicate a much more information in much less less time even if there's no text on image br example if there is a model that is wearing a rain jacket for example wearing a rain jacket. And they're out in the forest forest and they're getting rained on his and his ripping over top. There is a ton of information in that image. Right there it is showing roughly how the fit of the rain jacket jacket like is it. Does it show up really drooping model to show up super tight in showing that the hood is over in a show that totally waterproof or shows the water coming off there. It shows edited song geared towards hikers. People are using it outdoors. It just. There's so much information your brain can insulate take in from an image rather than reading which is much slower so you WanNa have a very specific purpose for each one of these. I recommend creating your shot list in advance. Whether you're doing the voters yourself or you're getting a professional the company that you report your your buddy create a shot lists that is based around the most important things to show about your product. So it's kind of comes back to copywriting principals identifying what the most key benefits your product provides are based on your research and then creating the shortlist from that maybe one of the key benefits alleged that you have. Is You know it repels water right. Let's go with the rain. Jacket example again. How is the best way to show that repels water? You could show. That was a graphic design image with like a rain droplet on it with an icon but probably a more effective way to show that it'd be having D'Amato wearing a rain jacket and a bunch of water. Actually she coming off it. It's it's a flasher way to show that but something like sizing is probably better shown in a graphic design image. Where you have the rain jackets sitting when you have some markers showing okay? This dimension is strictly three inches. This dimension like Chess Dimension is twenty two inches and stuff like that so you really gotta think once those who have your amount of images and you have each one of those filled out. What the key benefit? What is the best type of image? Actually show off that benefit and you wanna be using a mixture of less model graphic design images was some graphics added to them and some studio images was white background. Even if it's just only your niche which are just because Amazon requires that that main image so that is just an overall concept that a lot of people just don't put enough time and energy into and one more thing when it comes to you lifestyle images I see this all the time and it makes me cringe so much when you have a model using your product make sure that the model is actually actually in the act of doing something that you're trying to show. The model should not holding the product in posing like looking at the camera. And like the worst is. When it's a supplemental laments? Something like that or like a skin care product and it's like holding the packaging and just like looking at the camera like they're trying to show but it just blows my mind that people think that that's a good idea. The whole point of having a lot is showing the customer. What they're like? There's going to be like after having products and you know what what kind of benefit you're trying it show comprehensive Elsa so Yeah I like the The Klay mindedness. You very very good at cutting to the chase of this. This was something is really helpful site. Where every image masses Yasser that people will judge and rightly has its against world? Djembe sleep trying to put on some kind of best front especially in a work situation but in a sales situation we all know. It's exited the pets tried to put on the best fraud. Said they show some colored biddle problem even when the Up in what north is going to be like what it tends to your house. Rise was the feeding the APP. The question happened lines. Yeah I was just thinking about. It's it's completely relevant to Amazon Bud. This way you get away with wearing pants. New Pants Transition And not get if you look at online. David conferencing type stuff like with say US the other way. If you get away without Kadett craziness so very good point but joking aside Kevin King these very very strong image at Decades says the secret to be judged on your worst image which is a great old of thumb. So I love the you've reminded us about. I think the point where if you can get get five fantastic images out there but at six one in if it's going to be mediocre so very good reminded on the second one is every imaging having a pep is really important and then the cartoon benefits which is the basics of good salesmanship but a Lotta people mess it up completely. They get abused by this object in front of them stop. Budget crossing offing Why are we so tell me a bit more than if we're going to be very clear about the purpose of each image tightly? I don't say the Started image being. I used to communicate bests than how do we decide. What sort of voter or indeed waltz the machines because the missionaries top purpose? Again that it needs to be benefit different but how do we structure listing as whole so that the flow into each other in some logical order. Yeah so the logical order in my opinion is to go off key info optimization if you guys heard the other podcast episode or we're going over the triple optimize listing. One of those. Three pieces is key impo optimization. That's basically just whatever that list of the most key benefits that you came up with the shot list order those and or importance for the your customers your products and the most important ones should be in the most prominent places realistic. So so the two most important places would be the first three images and then the first little snippet every title after Your First Main Keyword is should be your first name followed by. I most important piece of information. So let's say on a really common one is with food containers kind EP free. He has a real trigger word. People were only looking for BP free food containers. They don't want the cheap Chinese ones that are going to need help but this crazy hormone meddling chemical into their bodies I would put. BPA Free in that second all snippet of the title and then after the main image images by regulations has pure white background and just product product. But I would put that whatever image you have created for. EPA would be the second image because it's just the most important thing

Voice Beyond Weather and Music with the Co-Founders of VoxxUp
"Now I know both of you are all about encouraging the voice tech world to think beyond whether music why do you think. The voice channel is underutilized in spite of the exploding adoption and Sunday. Start with you. I think the basic reason here is this. Particular Channel is still clearing that you glazed brands to brands ousted. Lot really last. This particular channel to engage with the customers veto to their customers in a meaningful manner which again brings gloves to the question. As to why are they not using the journal would effectively which we believe in this basically comes from interaction what action with a number of prospects and planes that have been working with right. I think it boils down to three things. One is. People are obeyed off off the exploding adoption of ways and smart speakers and You know the numbers are published regularly. But this didn't understand as to what is the use case that they can today the loss lack of education especially when the decision because as to how they can meaningfully engaged with the second Christian that the always face redoubt prospects and customers Hobie blue that skill or election exists somehow been only I believe that if they have say still have to market but some of that doesn't do for the voice skills our actions that they have still not able what do we aligned with the fact that that would also require a marketing make glove air in and there is an action awful brand with that that you can get into things and last but not least is the vision of Ottawa Everyone says okay. If you do this what is the auto identikit. And because of the spill Waverley as merely. Don't have a lot of the Matrix two pools that okay. This is what okay your customer kicks. Rabin Please Bay explicit all your amd market your brand of interest would increase planes and so on and so I think education and the understanding about marketing. His skills in action is also part of creating these things and the absence of metrics on three things instead. I believe that brands are not really placing the battalion. The Nicholas you know one more part to be added to that if you really look at that Voices relatively new. Oh and boys get be heavily utilized once you know part of our day to day life credit union.

Yeah I think all the points both of you made are very true. I think that we're seeing that quite often. So what are some real use cases that brands can explore floor. That maybe they haven't thought of and can you share some of the interesting use cases you're dealing with large clients around the world. I think we have been grateful to look on pretty forward looking use cases when somebody nights claims across the blue out example Bank in Singapore and this is pretty large bank one hundred ninety billion dollars in assets under management stock use case we want to build a basic prisons on Weiss Sunderland.

Nike, ServiceNow and SAP CEOs play a game of musical chairs
"Soon because Tuesday morning under armor announced Kevin Plank is stepping down as CEO in January and then later in the day on Tuesday sort of late after a new Nike announced that CEO Mark Parker also stepping down in January he's going to be replaced by John Donahoe who is a Ward member at Nike he is also the CEO of Software Company called service now so he'll be he's been CEO there for nearly three years he's going to be leaving and and Bill McDermott who a couple of weeks ago stepped down or was forced out depending on which version of events you decide to believe he left sap after being CEO for nearly a decade he's now going to be the CEO service now so the musical chairs continuous. Let's let's start with Nike and shares down a little bit on the news and probably not a surprise when you consider Parker's been running this company since two thousand six and if you're a shareholder her under his tenure you have done very very well Oh yeah you're you're quite happy so parker was the second CEO at at Nike following tonight and he took over in two thousand six but there's probably been some I know there have been rumors at least that CEO succession at Nike is Being Thought About for instance three years ago after China chief Michael Sperling was promoted to President Product Marketing and that was his fifth promotion in ninety here so he's moving up the ranks pretty quickly people were wondering Oh is he being groomed as as the next successor but there was also C. C. O. exp Bronx and Brand President Trevor Edwards and the latter man gentleman especially with seen as as the primary contender but then a couple of years ago Edwards was forced out in March of two thousand eighteen amid amid allegations of inappropriate behavior and will leave it at that so Parker's a comment yes Yesterday during an interview that hey this has been months in the planning you don't do this just a couple of weeks is probably true but I'm I'm kind of wondering what the timing has to do with I mean under armor announces a plank stepping down and he says Oh maybe we want to get on that news to or is it more related to the drug doping thing that's I've been coming out and whether Parker knew about it or not and the speculation there or is it just hey today just happen to be the same day that all this other stuff was coming up yeah and and the drug doping thing that you mentioned that's a relief to Alberta Salazar coach ty did Nike over the last few weeks some stories have come out about that and then and then and the extent to which Parker knew about that so some some questions around that I find the timing fascinating because I just thought there's no way or you're going to have a very our time convincing me that this is a coincidence I mean all things being equal because Nike has been the clear leader in the category for so long and even plank has been very clear in his time at under armor you know running the company he was gunning for Nike the whole time right in most situations I would believe that under armor maybe got wind of this and they moved up their announcement and actually think in this situation I think it's the reverse I think that Nike may have just decided you know what we're gonNA announce this later this week or maybe we're we're going to tie to our earnings report you know what let's just do this right now so maybe when plank says okay I'm out in Percocet yes score column win column there we go so let's talk about Donohoe for a second I don't know a ton about him what I do We know is that his experience as an executive is very much in the tech space as I may have service now software company he was an executive at Ebay who is the CEO of EIB. Yeah the chief executive for years and made a bunch of acquisitions onto there so I think if you are a Nike shareholder again it's only down a couple of percentage points I don't think that's necessarily a knock on Donohoe I think that's more just Parker's done such a great job it's it's it's natural to see a trump a little bit but I think if you're if you're looking at the elevations donohoe it's it's with an eye towards his tech experience and Nike increasingly relying on technology to move product right and and and I think again the narrative is that that's why the White was named he has been a director for a couple of years at Nike who was the CEO of Ebay for seven eight years until Twenty fifteen is been the chairman pal he oversaw the spinoff of pay pal from Ebay but that was kind of forced upon him and Ebay by Carl ICAHN activision activision active what what's the word activism activism thank you but he's expected to come into Nike and use his tech savvy to probably continue the digital transformation that has really been driving some good results for Nike They've got their Nike plus membership they're getting being able to get more personalized in their advertising for that and they're seeing some big up responses to that and along with that awesome product tracking and inventory management a lot a lot of good things are happening with Nike from a Tech Perspective and I think Donna who's GonNa continue that maybe a better indicator Keke shareholders is what's happening with shares of service now because that's down about ten percent since it was announced go the donnas leaving let's move on to another great quarter for AAA same store sales such a crucial metric for any restaurant out there up eleven percent rent nearly two percentage points higher than expected the stock is down close to five percent today is that just because of the run that it has had to this point because it's been on an amazing tear it could be that well let me hit some of the points and then connect to that there were other numbers so cops I think that was the big I number and really kind of surprised eleven percent is huge when your restaurant seven and a half percent of that was on transactions that's more people buy more stuff three and a half percent was on average check with about two and a half of that coming from price increases last year but the fact that they're getting more digital orders and digital orders tend to be larger sized checks for that and that's the the present com is higher than what they've had all year q one ten percent Kutu now eleven present Q. Three though this little certainly make next to your harder harder to beat but that aside the digital thing is really going up they sought eighty eight percent increase in sales of digital orders and now there's like eighteen percent of total sales so that's pretty good and the rewards club is is really beginning to play into that and so they also said they're going to Open some more of there drive through and literally that's drive through you don't stop to order you just try to go and pick up pick up the stuff and that's tied into their didn't digital sales as well but why are the shares down five percent maybe it's well the the the the company's shares have had a fantastic runner up twenty percent since the any of June maybe investors saying hey that was a great quarter thank you very much and could take some money off the table maybe it's a bunch of the analyst not raising their their expectations AH bunch of analysts came out with higher price targets but nobody actually moved there from hold to outperform or market perform. to overweight or whatever the languages but you look at the job that Brian Nickel has done as CEO and Yeah quarter after quarter Cipolla has delivered under his leadership and it may be that the stock has entered that territory that we see from time to time when businesses have a great the three year run and it's essentially this was a phenomenal quarter but it wasn't perfect because now because we're greedy we wanna see you beating on everything and Radi race and guidance headed almost did meet on everything but actually I think I know why the shares were down it was announced that they're limited time Carne Asada meat product it is going to run off November so everyone's disappointed angry and where do you think and again let me just catch Thanks I don't think there's any pressure whatsoever on Brian Nichols given the job that he's done but I'm curious where you think the growth for AAA comes over the next three years because there was a point in this business history when they were doing so well with the namesake concept that people were looking to the shop house Asian cuisine concept as that's where future growth is gonNA come from we're not going to get as many locations as we have AAA but we're going to get you know a few hundred those have essentially been closed down so do they begin to resurrect some of those ideas or do you think it's just more digital more locations and finding ways to bump up the average ticket price I don't think they're going to go into other concepts quite yet of given their experience they're probably a little gun shy right there that might come down that might come to pass down the road I think they're going to push more into digital and get more people ordering in so they can just walk in and walk out and pick up their stuff that as well as the drive through what they call chip Elaine get terrible name right actually it's kind of funny but I mean reaction it's it's it's it's no worse than the estimate forces on us getting the name aside I think that's going to be a really good driver for the company and that means they can open a second product line of just fulfilling orders through that go through more digital sales and as well as having more customers come through the doors so I think that's where the growth is going to be trial various things Carne Asada apparently did very well well are they going to bring in some breakfast at some point probably so I think they're going to continue expanding what they're working on focusing on their cordial police thing and then maybe a few years down the road might start thinking about other concept's
Can Aerospace Shrug Off Trade Wars and the MAX?
"The boeing seven three seven max fiasco has dominated headlines as aircraft grounding has affected airlines and production slowdown repsonses supply chain president trump continues to escalate a trade war with china putting u._s. Aerospace exports particularly civil aircraft at potential risk the u._s. government's budget deficit has hit a trillion dollars this year and there are words about a global economic slowdown and yet the aerospace and defense industries so far it has remained surprisingly resilient hitter discuss that are michael bruno aviation week senior business editor and in the moscow our executive editor for defense and space ace michael. Let's start with you because you just wrote an article at painted a radi bullish outlook for the centers for you want to explain yeah <hes> joe and jen good to talk about this. It's it's a very interesting picture to me. Because it seems counter intuitive. There were all of these issues that are iraqi pie in our daily brains the ones you've listed joe everything from the max to trade wars and if you just kind of did a sentiment poll you'd think everyone everyone was thinking the end of the world was near but i read about two analyst reports <hes> over the past several weeks and the analyst reports aren't just this their own musings. They're based on their own interviews with ceos and others from across the industry and it's pretty unanimous. Everybody's still expects growth for this year and next year and his mind boggling that is they've got some really good reason to buy jenn. It's it's hard to argue that the trump administration has not been good for defense spending. What's the environment like now. There's been a budget agreement that takes us to the election in two thousand twenty or are we out of the woods all-clear well. We're better than we might have been a few months ago but we're. I don't think we're out of the woods yet. The there's still a poisonous atmosphere. That's very pervasive in washington. What we have right now is an agreement over the the amount of money that the federal government can spend in twenty twenty an in twenty twenty one. That's a big milestone because it gets us past. Ask the twenty eleven budget control act caps it kind of somewhat settles that issue but still we don't have have any appropriations bills that have been passed yet into law so until that happens. There's always the dark potential attention cloud of a government shutdown of a continuing resolution of more fights to come but in the meantime time until any of those doomsday scenarios actually emerged defense is one of the leading reasons why people are expecting growth for not just this year it next year the budget agreement what it's done is it's provided certainty in what the business sector wants more than anything else is certainty the direction of where business going then they can plan and they can make their investments and changes and cuts or whatever they need to do in order to keep rewarding shareholders percents fake holders and the budget agreement provides the certainty not just for two years. It's a two year budget agreement yes but federal outlays which is the money that actually <unk> gets written by the treasury department that goes to contractors and other people federal outlays tend to lag budget authority by in two years so if you've got a budget agreement that sees you through fiscal twenty twenty one that means you pretty much with the federal outlays are going to be going all the way through twenty twenty three four years from now and i mean you think we're going to have a presidential election. You very well could have a u._s. Recession as well as a world recession recession between now and then and yet the defense sector has got really good clarity into what looks like italy's a modicum of growth over the next two to four years pointing out lawmakers have have agreed on how much money to spend basically. They said we'll just borrow it. All grandkids is pay for it someday but they haven't agreed exactly how to spend it right. I mean the president's already shifted some money from defense to pay for the wall aw that he wants to build a mexico so are are the do you see any potential fights brewing or even none of the government shutdown over how to spend all this money yes i do. That's the short answer. I need. You mentioned the border wall. There is an lingering disagreement with with the trump administration's tactics and making that happen <hes> their their propensity to what is called called reprogram money or transferred between accounts without consulting with congress. Were asking for congress after they've decided to do something lawmakers. I really don't like that so at the same time there's pressure for politicians to come to an agreement because we are getting into an election year so so there is some pressure for them to make a deal to make this so it can go either way and then looking to next year a lot does depend on the <music> outcome of the election and that is really a wild card we don't know but the presidency may be in play the control of the senate and house a lot of that will determine the future puts and takes underneath that top line which programs get funded in which don't although you know within the defense budget you can pretty much say that there will be support for certain areas like hypersonic hypersonic missile defense those kinds of programs. I'd say probably have a strong cancer getting funded regardless of the changing political winds. There's one big dad. Jensen jen and i are both a former congressional reporter recovering congressional reporters and there's an old saying tale about how nothing's agreed to until everything it is agreed to so whether it's a wall or some other unrelated topic something could emerge that pops up and holds up defense in at the end and everybody in washington knows that's a reality. It's a fact of life that won't change. Speaking of something. Emerging blew the commercial side the industry large large jets commercial jets has not seen a downturn since two thousand three. It's even led some people to predict. The industry is now recession proof <hes> what what could come out of the blue that could sort of handicap commercial aerospace or even send a new downturn. Oh wow well. How much time do we have on his podcast. Because the you know the the mind wanders with possibilities and the thing about you know we could list several roll things and one of them is the trade war goes south overnight between china and the u._s. I think that's on the top list arrive on most people's tops of their lists and the reason is is because the chinese market represents about a quarter of the commercial aircraft craft backlog at the two major o._e._m. Owing an airbus and if suddenly that is used as a weapon in an economic war that you don't just replace a quarter in fact there's no one else you gotta start finding martians or somebody on another planet. Who's going to buy some of these aircraft because there's nobody else in the world. Who's who's going to step in and buy the equivalent of what china is expected to buy and so that's a big one. You've got other things however there used to me this rule before we got into this endless cycle that you referred to you know this greatest expansion since two thousand three the old rule in commercial aircraft or craft used to be g._d._p. Was a precursor to air traffic to air passenger traffic volume and when g._d._p. He's fell around the world. You would see within about six to eighteen months lag in air passenger traffic and air passenger traffic is what what would drive orders and so there was a natural succession and if one started falling it was just a matter of time until the next point. A lot of people say things are different now. Look for for all kinds of reasons. They look at other indicators beyond just national g._d._p. Around the world but we haven't tested this yet <hes> <hes> it remains to be seen whether we get another recession whether smaller great whether that's actually true and then there's all kinds of small things that could pop up you could see a major cyber security flaw emerge overnight that could perhaps down the supply chain. Maybe not take it down and whole all but if everybody's getting more and more digital in their operations and suddenly you find there's a flaw. You're not just going to develop new plants overnight and bring in thousands of workers who are going to make things the old fashioned way without computers. That just isn't going to happen so i mean there's all kinds of scenarios that could doom things but i'd say at at the end of the day people are worried about china yeah yeah when you talk about things coming out of the blue i mean the the max grounding certainly came on the bill what he saw that the the only thing that's limited is not that many max have been delivered yet right right and had this happened in three years airlines like southwest might all of a sudden have to avid aircraft it could be disastrous for the industry also it's a max remains a hit. It remains a bit of a theory and hear me out for a moment. It's it's a bit of a theory based on an unproven assumption and what i mean by that is the max is all about meeting the growth in air passenger traffic. That's that's expected over the next several years that is based on middle classes continuing to grow well that theory about middle classes growing and continuing to use discretionary spending to buy commercial airline tickets to travel around the world has yet to be tested by. I am major recession so we are thinking that maxwell continue to go on next year and the year after that boeing and airbus are going to sell major numbers of venero bodies and even a few wi- bodies and everybody's still gonna make a lot of money in the end but this is all the first time any of this has been tested jeb. We're gonna wake you up. Stop talking a model. It's commercials what about defense and you talked about. It depends on the election but hasn't defense spending it also always been driven by the threat yes and no i mean it is driven by the threat but what we've seen really since two thousand thousand one since the nine one one terrorist attacks is is generally record high levels of defense spending so even when you had a downturn in the the obama years and they reigned in defense spending a little bit it wasn't <hes> wasn't pure downturn and so so that's been kinda turned on its head mainly because the threat level has been high regardless of where you go in the world if you're fighting terrorism in the middle east now now you know the national defense strategy is more geared toward near peer competitors like china and russia so <hes> so yes that is true but in a in an era where there are threats everywhere you have to be able to adjust the budget otherwise <hes> someday hey you deficits and debt might catch up with you as a nation okay. It is is pretty scary world out there. I mean your team writes. All the time about china's and russia's carr's efforts in hyper sonics about the vulnerability do a space pearl harbor u._s. Space assets are attacked wiped out a lot of a lot of meat certainly defense a lot of neat yeah i. I think there's one other thing and that's interesting about this gentleman. It could be worth explaining for a moment about how despite despite whatever growth the defense budget is gonna have they still clamor for more and they say they need it because they've got growth needs that petr beyond just inflationary adjustments so they need what three percent a year over inflation just to stay to maintain their operations as they are so one reason. They're always screaming as they're never getting real growth. They're only getting inflationary growth so that's right i. I still think we're on course for a reckoning. I mean if you look at the national debt. It's it's a short matter of time before. We're spending more money on interest interest on the national debt than we are in defense. If interest rates tick up. That's a huge problem. Too is in your spending a lot more so you're either going to raise taxes which congress hasn't done in years or or you've got to find the money somewhere and if you have a u._s. Recession you wound up. You wind up in almost every the u._s. Recession having the government increased benefits to the population to support them through the recession and so that's more money going out the door yet another pressure on the budget the trade war with china are they gonna help out there. You go so michael with you or the question. Things are feeling. I'm pretty good right now. But is it nineteen twenty eight for this industry rian nine hundred twenty eight where everything was roaring before the stock market collapsed in the great depression. Ah yeah you know if i can answer that question. I wouldn't be here. I'd be on wall street playing some big numbers and making even bigger numbers <hes> and that's the problem. Is you know not too fancy too much philosophy talk here but there's there's always been this this known unknown. We know that the good times can't go on forever and you know that things happen and changes come and can the question is when does it happen and nobody right. Now says they really think they see it happening in the next six to eighteen months but just about all of these same people say kind of happen so now the now the best guesses are sometime in the early twenty twenty s. You're going to see a real significant hip dip in commercial aircraft orders and you may even see a rise in the cancellation of commercial aircraft orders so that that would be the testing ground but for the next eighteen months things are looking at were end on that positive upbeat prediction hold you to it. Michael comeback fared in a few
The fraying transatlantic alliance
"Hello and welcome to this edition of weld weekly from the financial times. I am answer venture Johnny the world news editor and this week, we're looking at transatlantic relations as the Trump administration appears to turn its back on its traditional European allies in a sign of Washington's shifting allegiances, the US president on Monday, welcomed Hungary's, illiberal leader, Victoria, Alban to the White House days, after his secretary of state abruptly cancelled a meeting with Germany's Angela Merkel joining me on the line from Washington DC is Dmitri, Sevastopol, oh, the F, Washington bureau chief and from Belene guy. Chaz on our between VERA chief my first question goes to you Dimitri. Donald Trump was fool of praises for Victoria ban on Monday. He congratulated him for his quote block up against refugees from Syria, and he's work to protect the Christian communities. Can you give us a bit of details and explain why this visit is so important and telling we'll, I think one of the things that we've learned about Donald Trump over the last two years. This is one of the things that many Europeans have concerns about is, he seems to want to solve up to leaders who are far -tarian strongmen, you know, very hard line. You know, there's a long list, whether it's early on in Turkey or on in Hungary Kim Jong on North Korea, who Donald Trump said he fell in love with or Vladimir Putin in Russia Trump when he meets these leaders at least publicly doesn't criticize them for some of the things that they're doing their own countries to threaten democracy on the other hand, he seems willing to criticize Anglo Myrtle, or Theresa May or president McConnell, France. So there's a kind of cost me come seems to like something to these strong, tough solitary leaders. And yet, he at the same time he seems to be dismissing some of the concern. Means pushing away, European allies of America who have helped maintain the kind of peace across the trans Atlantic now for seventy years. As you said, the relationship has fuss deteriorated since Donald Trump kimchi office. The US needs key. European is have diverge on a number of issues. Can you list them for us? I mean, it's really wide from climate change trade, Iran. Well, I mean, from the very beginning, it's a long list, one of the things that President Trump today early in his presence. He was he withdrew the US from the Paris climate accords which sent ripples across Europe and the rest of the world later on in his tenure, he withdrew America from the around nuclear deal that America and some of its European allies had signed with Tehran in twenty fifteen on that has led to convert more bellicose stomps on Iran. He also has been incredibly critical of NATO now in criticizing NATO. He's not the first president, President Obama and President Bush frequently said that NATO allies needed to pay more for their defense. I remember travelling to your puts on rump sell the Robert Gates and they were constantly sending this message of Europeans. But Donald Trump has done it in a much more aggressive way. And I think one of the most heading examples was last summer in Brussels out of NATO summit, he was very critical. Angela Merkel both in public meetings and in private meetings and he's shocked many of the leaders who were in the -tendance. So I mean, there are other issues there as well to do with hallway and five G telecom networks and other things. But I think there's some of the main ones that have really created a false lines in the transit onto relationship guy intending to, you know, defense. Secretary of state. Mike Pompeo cancelled a meeting with medical less tweak invoking rising tensions in the Middle East. What was the reaction in betting? I think those zoo Hora that it was seen very much as a snub, it was supposed to be his first trip to Berlin, since he became secretary of state, and it was very hotly awaited. And he just didn't turn up. And I think there was shock that he then went on to Britain. And even so they all Tricia Canterbury. So, you know, even just in Welby was more important to him as a priority. Angela Merkel those real dismay, lots of Coventry in the German press, basically saying that the US German relationship is now, basically in TATA's on, what are we going to do about this, this feeling of crisis really in a relationship, which has been one of the main pillars of Germany's post-war identity really for seventy years now. Why do you think that Mr. Trump targeted Gemini, in particular among its European on is what's your assessment of that? Well, they're personal reasons as well as political reasons. The chemistry between Angela Merkel and Donald Trump has never really worked. You know, she really comes across as associate professor, and he's like the naughty boy who didn't do his homework, he doesn't like being lectured, and Michael does have a tendency to lecture, one of the first thing she did when he was elected president. She sent him a message saying will look forward to working with you, but very much on the basis of our shed values of respect for human rights, and democracy, and so on that was perceived. As a real slight to Donald Trump. Basically a smackdown saying you're going to have to behave need didn't take Hymie to that. But there are other aspects. It's not just the chemistry America is very antagonist very exercise by Germany's failure to meet its commitment, which gave in two thousand fourteen to spend two percent of its GDP on defense. It's nowhere near that target and in fact recently published its budget estimates for the coming years, and it looks like it's actually going to go down as a percentage of GDP is spending on the military. So that was seen as a real red rag to Donald Trump's bull. And he's also, I mean, there's a very famous interview he did with playboy magazine from the ninety s where he complained about how many German cars that were on Fifth Avenue in New York, and he's had Macedo and BMW in his science for many, many years. So it didn't surprise the Germans a tool that he started talking about imposing. Import tariffs on European cars, and he's been complaining for longtime about the size of the German, current account surplus, which, of course, a lot of Germany's allies in Europe of also join attention to over the years. What do you think all the far reaching consequences for Germany? What are the Germans, what kind of lesson? They're drink from this facility longer term. Do you think there's a realization that Germany, and Europe must be more independent from a defense point of view, or, you know, foreign policy point of view? What is your sense? Absolutely. I was at a conference, whether we're talking about this and one speaker said Germany's success is built on three elements integration with the EU the transatlantic security guarantee on Germany's access to open Mockus worldwide and Trump threatens all of those three things. So there's a sense, here that there's, it's kind of existential threat posed by Trump's America first ideology tool. All those things that have made Germany, such a huge success over the last few decades. So that definitely is a feeling that they have to respond in some way. I mean it's very tentative at the moment, though, I mean, for example, that talking about developing much more of a kind of foreign policy. Competence in the EU and more of a sort of independent defense posture, and, you know, maybe getting rid of unanimity, and you decisions on foreign policy, so that they can have more qualified majority voting not come thing, but it's all relative tentative. And even when they do talk about building up their defense capabilities that gets them in hot water with the Americans. We wrote the story saying, how America was criticizing the latest initiatives for military cooperation between EU countries, the Pescara the permanent structured cooperation initiative, and EDF the European defence fund because they feel that it's not really compatible with NATO that it produces. Much duplication and diversion of scarce defense resources and it sets up a necessary competition between NATO in the EU. And so the sense of frustration in Europe over this is light. You tell us we need to do more far defense, and then we try and do it you complain. So the relationship has Radi scrunchy at the moment as we can see on the number of different fronts. Exactly. So they have this quantity move from the US. Do you want to jump in Dmitri? It's true that every time Europe speaks about more independence on the security from the US gets angry and gets a letter warning. But on the other hand, you know, you get a sense that the US is kind of retreating from Europe. What's your interpretation? Well stuffing element of Donald Trump getting a little bit of taste of his own medicine, sometimes when the European say that they want to their own defense capabilities. But I think it's also important to stress that this issue between the US and Europe on defense spending it really isn't just Donald Trump issue. And he is the one who is addressing it in a much more assertive, much more aggressive on some people would say overly aggressive way. But it's something that has stretched back now for more than a decade in the US the US than constantly saying to the European countries, particularly Germany because it is the biggest economy in Europe that they need to spend more. So I think it's an issue that's not going to go away, even if Donald Trump loses the election in twenty twenty I think a democratic president will be much friendlier to traditional US allies and I was just in New Hampshire on the campaign trail with Cory Booker and Beethoven, Joe Biden on all of them were talking about the need to rebuild on to strengthen American alliances with Europe. But notwithstanding that I still think. Whoever's president after twenty twenty is still going to put pressure on Europe to spend more money on defense, and if Germany and some of the other countries who haven't miss this two percent target haven't reached it, then I think you're still going to have tensions on that issue just to go back to one thing that guy said, I really do think the car issue is critical. I mean Donald Trump has how the being his bonnet about cars for a long time at the end of this week. He's going to potentially decide whether to put tariffs on imports of European cars. So this really is something that's a trade relationship is something that really gets him. And also when he was in Europe last year. Another thing that he criticized glimmer pool for is the Nord Stream two pipeline that will bring Russian gas into Europe and Donald Trump and some of his team are saying you want us to spend money to defend you against Russia, and yet, you're buying Russian gas on the other hand, the European say, hold on a second. You're the president who has criticized by the Putin, for orchestrating a campaign to interfere in the American elections. So there's a lot of things crossing the Atlantic and. It's very hard to see how any of this gets any better while Donald Trump is in office tensions, are escalating in the Middle East over Iran, with rising threat of war, and some echoes of cheese than three when the US in some European countries disagreed, on whether to war with Iraq. Dictates us Adam Hussain to meet you what all the broader security ramifications of this poor transatlantic relations. Are we entering a new testing phase? Well, the big question that's emerged in the last few days in Washington is are we returning to the early years of the Bush administration where it appears that there was a constant drum beat among Iran hawks for the US to take military action against Iran. Now, we know that on both in the national security advisor has asked the Pentagon to dust off its war plan for Iran. Not the caveat there is at the Pentagon has funds for everything, and there periodically dusting them off. But when a story comes out that they're dusting them off, Iran at a time when Mike Pompeo secretary of state. John Bolton and others are being very aggressive in the rhetoric towards around it raises questions as to whether the US is contemplating taking most reaction, and I think, not something that would be a huge divide across the transatlantic. I mean as much tension as two walls, when George W Bush invaded Iraq. You remember relations then between George W Bush Gertrude or Germany were extra very odd because since the war in Germany. But I think we would see something that will be exponentially worse. If the US did take any kind of military action in Iran. So people are watching very closely right now to see whether this is just on both in on the hawks making bellicose noises. Just too scary round or whether there's actually something fundamentally happening behind the scenes. My thanks to Dmitri and guy that was really fascinating. And that's it for this week till next week goodbye.

"Air pods and wireless headphones could cause cancer. Now, this comes out of Miami, local ten. Were they say using these wireless headphones like these apple air pods? And the biotechnology come with cancer risks. The scientists have the type of electromagnetic frequency radio waves, the EMS that transmit the data through the devices Cam caused serious health issues apparently two hundred fifty experts signed a United Nations experts. I if they're experts and some big stuff experts signed the United Nations and World Health Organization petition to warn of the danger. WSB? Along with cancer neurological disorders and DNA damage are also late to this of exposure. Why because they can generate heat caused Burs and affects cell growth in humans. Now, the petition claims numerous recent scientific publications have shown that the EMF affects living organisms at levels, well below most international and national guidelines, the scientists say the EMF warnings about possible dangers are not good enough. Okay. This some strong, heavy duty. I mean, when you got experts petitioning, they're not being heard there's been people screaming and yelling about our wireless technology and cell phones, causing cancer. I think it was about he was it in November. I wrote an article on this were there was a study from the national isn't. It's a valve reporting clear evidence that cell phone radiation. Be connected to cancer clear evidence, not oh, we have a suspicion. Not that. Oh, you know, we are looking into this. This is clear evidence. Like, it's done. It's it's there. Tests were performed on mice and rats using much higher levels of radiation that humans are exposed to. But the male rats started to show an increase in brain tumors. They also found an increased risk of cancer of the adrenal glands, and those top the kidneys and produce hormones now that study was performed by. Dr John butcher and colleagues or Booker at the national tech toxicology programme, North Carolina, and they tested radiofrequency radiation used a to g and three g cell phones. And I know everybody's like, okay. We've got five G coming like super fast is five G. Okay. I don't know. I still don't even get how our phone works. I mean, I know where my mom lives, and I keep a nice healthy distance. But man that phone makes it sound like she is right up. Makes the hair on the back of my next. Stand up my mom feels like she has right. They're not only in the room. But in my head. You know, like, I'm hearing voices sort of thing. I don't know how that technology works. They say the minimum amount of radiation. Mice would be considered the maximum amount of radi- radiation at the federal regulators would allow humans so they gave the mice, you know, higher than maximum doses. But they found clear evidence that the radiation
