Branson Beats Musk in Human Hyperloop Test
"A week ago a man and a woman got into a metal pod sat down on vegan leather seats and strap themselves for a trip. Unlike any other the pod was then levitated by magnets and shot through vacuum tube at one hundred seven miles per hour in roughly six seconds. Talk about a wild ride and it was actually an historic first. The two brave souls are employees of virgin hyperloop and they were the first humans to test. The new technology virgin hyperloop focuses on the high speed transportation concept billionaire. Richard branson's virgin group is a minority investor before testing the system with humans virgin hyperloop conducted more than four hundred unmanned tests. Hyperloop has been called the future of transport. The systems are designed to be giant low pressure tubes floating pods or suspended by magnets and carry passengers from point. Eight point at theoretical speeds of up to seven hundred miles per hour. Here's how it works. The pod network uses magnetic levitation two sets of magnets both repel the pod in the tube and help move it forward and the vacuum system used to help accelerate to high speeds is similar to the system. You use to send your documents to the teller at your bank. drive through. Popular mechanics explains inside the pod. G forces were more than three times that of an airplane but the passengers said the ride was smooth. New york times reported ultimately groups like virgin hyperloop hoped to deploy the technology to transport people and cargo. The speed would reduce the time. It takes to get from los angeles to san francisco to less than an hour. The times report says that's faster than a direct flight. When the hyperloop debuts it will be the first truly new transportation technology and more than one hundred years the independent reports branson isn't the only billionaire dabbling in hyperloop technology. You may have heard of a fellow named elon musk. He's credited with conceptualizing the technology nearly a decade ago and he is boring company. Boring as in boring tunnels underground has a test tunnel california that it's using to test. Its hyperloop and other technology. Each year musk's spacex holds a hyperloop pod competition where university students compete to make prototypes of high speed transportation. Pods last year. Students from the university of munich won the competition there. To um hyperloop pod set a new speed record for the competition of nearly three hundred miles per hour a longer track could help teams reach even higher speeds. Musk says virgin. Hyperloop is already designed to route between london. Borough branson says the uk route would be quicker and cheaper than the high speed rail system being put in now. The independent reports and richard geddes co founder of the hyperloop advanced research partnership believes that. There's an opportunity for a hyperloop. System linking abu dhabi and dubai in the united arab emirates. For now the hyperloop is still a theoretical transport system with more than a dozen companies working on bringing it reality and when you have competitive billionaires behind for bragging rights about being first to market things have a way getting done

Victoria Montgomery Brown - co-founder of Big Think
"Hey, they're Freedom Fighters. My name is Andrew and I'm the founder of mixergy where I interview entrepreneurs about how they built their businesses and joining me is someone whose company I've watched for years. It's called Big think and I remember when I realized how incredible their original videos were one of my guests. Jason freed found her base camp deduction with them and it wasn't just proud to show his video. And again, this is a site that was Victoria who are some of the big guests that you had on in the early days who were were speaking on camera unbelievable in the very early days. We had Elon Musk Richard Branson Larry Summers who was a former treasury secretary dozens of others. Really Moby's interesting laying off one of her first guess Henry Rollins. Henry Rollins, yes your name and people that I've even forgotten have been talking about musicians business people people who lead countries they were on the platform and such a strong read. Jason freed was proud to be associated with them. But he was also proud of the look of the video. One of the things that Victoria did was she created this beautiful white background beautiful white everything everything was almost disappearing except for the big thinker who was on camera isolated with nothing but their their thoughts and so Jason was so proud of how he looked to who he was with he shared it. He also was proud of the process that they took to record. It was just this incredible process and I realized something what they brought to online video wage. The time was full of Just Junk. It was people who were posting these 30 second clips of a boy whose finger was bitten by his brother was cute and viral, but it was meaningless. She was bring gravitas. She was bringing Big Ideas. She was bringing big personalities who would who would want to be in books not on on online video and she was turning it into a business and over the years. I kept an eye on the business and there are a couple of things that have been wondering about how they grew as a Content business how they raise money and so on and so when I heard that Victoria Montgomery brown, one of the co-founders of big think wrote a book I read it and I thought I was going to read all the ins and outs of the business Victoria what you did with your book digital goddess, the unfiltered lessons of a female entrepreneur was dead. You talked about everything that I can't get entrepreneurs too easily talk about on mixergy nervous breakdowns relationship problems eggs who talks about that dude who showed up in a bathrobe anyway, so I really like the book. I read cover-to-cover.
Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game
"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.
TikTok reaches deal that would give Oracle oversight of U.S. operations
"And Tick Tock recently made headlines Everywhere when Resin Donald Trump signed an executive order. That would essentially ban the Chinese owned APP in the US for national security reasons. Unless it sells its operations here to an American company. And of course, if that were to happen. We would have nowhere to go to see a million potatoes singing. To Adele. And that would be a national tragedy. This week deal actually emerged between TIKTOK and American company Oracle but some people like Zachary say trump's tiktok policy effectively changes. Nothing. The argument goes like this. It will do little to protect Americans data from the Chinese government because there are still plenty of other ways China could get that data that this move is just a new kind of security theater basically. The hard work of data security according to this actually lies elsewhere. So, Zachary TIKTOK has been banned in Indiana a few other countries, but it's still pretty popular for now it's the most popular video sharing app i. can see why it seems like fun and there are mental creative. They're short I mean the whole nature of the medium has their time limited. What happened with Tiktok this week what happened this week? Should be clear but isn't. Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target. We'll be right back.

Walter Isaacson proclaims reading this invaluable trove of advice from the greatest leaders of our time is like sitting in an armchair and listening to the masters reveal their secrets, pick up a copy of how to lead wisdom from the world's greatest CEOS founders and Game Changers Bhai David Rubenstein available in Hardcover e book or audio, and we're back I get the kind of general personal security aspect of it. Where does the national security aspect of it come in? Is it because there's concern about people who worked at the Defense Department or the military whoever having to talk in in use in their households or people in the Defense Department are not allowed to use tiktok certainly not on their phones. For before this although they may have teenagers who That's vulnerability as well. So it wasn't primarily about like US government employees who might have sensitive data that tiktok would be the back door way that the Chinese government would spy on them but it was generalized sense of any foreign government that is using private American citizen data potentially for nefarious purposes represents a national security threat. Now, it clearly has not represented the kind of national security threat in the estimation of the White House right now when it's Russian. Manipulation of social media accounts the same principle should or would apply right. If you'RE GONNA ban, Tiktok you'd probably want to take action against the a variety of Russian media enterprises that are attempting to manipulate and hoover up American user data. Some of that data's you mentioned earlier in terms of third party is available to anybody for a price just because there's a marketplace for data. Which I think either most of us aren't aware of or frankly most probably don't care if politicos data on this podcast gets sold to fourteen vendors so that it can sell you and me products based on our other computer activity most people. Either like that, or don't care about that. But the national security concern is simply because it's a foreign government that could potentially. Use, our search history or browsing history nefarious. And again a, that might be true but be it's likely that all this kind of data is obtainable irrespective of whether or not a company called TIKTOK. Happens to have access to a lot of it. It's really interesting. So into this whole story comes oracle, you know huge hardware software firm but how did they get involved here? Yes. Oracle is is a multibillion dollar firm that has had the same public profile as Microsoft or Amazon or facebook or apple because most of its business is to other large companies, you know you and I don't tend to go out and buy Oracle piece of hardware because we don't need a hundred and fifty thousand dollars server or. Network system for our employees. They're largely corporate provider throw a huge provider to the Defense Department in terms of cheer equipment and material, and they're huge software company. They're one of the early Silicon Valley success stories and the billionaire founder Larry Ellison has been probably more conservative than not I don't know that I buy into the whole. This is a reward versus. A snub to the other potential main acquirer or partner for Tiktok, which was rumored to be Microsoft but this is an unusual. This doesn't usually fit oracle's business model. Well, that's that's interesting. So what is their interest in getting involved here perceived to be I'm not one hundred percent clear about that I mean look at could allow them to. Have a little bit more of a consumer facing brand. Again, I mean Oracle's. Primarily a software company primarily a database company. Maybe this could help them increase their databases. There's no way that this is a natural fit for goal. But at the same time north this a huge cost for Oracle, maybe it'll produce some American jobs. I mean. They're looking for growth just like everybody's looking for growth, and once you get to be the size of Oracle. Growth gets harder some of they're also looking for a DIFFERENT INDUSTRY TO BE President Chore? So. What exactly did they given? What did they get here that as of this conversation is not one hundred percent clear off so it was presented as or go by tiktok. That is not the case or at least it's not the case now and as possible. The deal will be scuttled or change given that all of this has to be approved by the government has to be approved by committee. Called Syfy S, which is the committee in charge of looking at global deals in terms of US national security, but it would seem that right now. The parent company of Tiktok saw own TIKTOK and get some of the economic benefits of TIKTOK. This Chinese company called by dance and that Oracle in turn will get a massive licensing deal to house Tiktok data and information on its own. Servers and using its own software. So the concern that the Chinese government would have access to that data would be allayed meeting under this agreement arrangement because the data would be managed by and it's housing would be arranged by a US company. The Chinese government could order by dance to turn over but by dance itself wouldn't actually have access to that data. It's interesting I mean based on what you said before it's they're they're they're moving this data from place a, it's not going to be in a different place and I guess the Chinese government will no longer have a key to the door. But as you said before there's many different ways that either the Chinese government or a lot of other. State or private actors can get hold on more or less any data they want to these days right? which kind of raises the question for point of all, this is ENA. It's certainly true. It would make it a little more challenging to get that data under that kind of arrangement. It seems like this a big fight over a big company. That's not actually really about. The literal subject of the conflict here. Yeah. It is totally fair to say that whatever the imbroglio about tiktok has very little to do with tiktok. And everything to do with US policy toward China. And the trump administration looking for some High profile optic to be able to say we're we're being tough on China and protecting American citizens. Again, the oddity of Tiktok is given that so many of its users or young adults. Who Don't vote although who would be? Extremely, Acetate it. If they woke up tomorrow and there's no TIKTOK meeting, it's probably not. The most popular move if what you're trying to do is gain support during a presidential election. So it's not entirely clear what constituency the served there wasn't like a huge congressional clamor for Oh my God. We're all big imperilled by these fifteen second videos. So where do you think things go from here in terms of into in terms of the real story behind all this in terms of the U., S., China relationship and the increasing in. them of that. So I think to some degree regardless of who wins the presidential election. there. Is a train that's left the proverbial station of increasing. Distrust and animosity between the United States and China. But within the context of an incredible amount of economic interdependence that you cannot just snap your fingers and several or at least not without massive massive harm to each part of that equation both the United States and China, and that's that's pretty unprecedented. Right? Right. That's like the Cold War analogy doesn't work because there was no economic relationship between the United States and the Soviet Union nineteen. Fifty S
Tesla Rivals are Moving Into High Gear -- and Going Public
"From wondering I'm Elaine Appleton grant and this is business words daily on this Wednesday August Nineteenth David Brown's on vacation. Tesla has long had an image of being in both good and less good ways without comparison. CEO? Elon Musk stands out for his big vision and sometimes quirky behavior, and until now anyway, Tesla's all electric vehicles have stood head and shoulders above the competition coming from traditional automakers. Competition what competition I can almost imagine musk saying. Oh, but there is plenty coming tesla shares soared two, hundred, fifty percent this year. The company is now the most valuable automaker in the world according to. CNN. That's because Tesla which went public ten years ago is finally profitable. Tesla had a record twenty nineteen in posted its first annual profit last year despite the pandemic it's been profitable this year as well and that kind of performance and the stock market's reward for it is convincing more and more electric vehicle makers to go public and to try to woo customers away from Tesla last week, Ohio Electric Startup, Lordstown Motors Corporation, or L. M. C. said, it plans to go public by the end of the year. It's ticker symbol ride. If the deal goes through, the company will be valued at close to one point five, billion dollars. So who is Lordstown Motors to burst on the scene this way? L. LLC is a spinoff of another electric truckmaker called Workhorse. GROUP LORDS DOWN CEO Steve Burns is the former CEO of workhorse with LLC Burns resurrecting a project that we're course didn't have the money to do the company plans to release an all electric full-size pickup truck the Lordstown endurance in the second half of twenty twenty one that's according to journalist Alan. Adler, writing for trade publication freight waves. The truck will have a range of about two hundred fifty miles on a charge the same as Tesla's sci-fi looking cyber truck it'll toes seventy five hundred pounds alums. He says again, just like the chuck, the endurance will start at fifty two thousand dollars a good deal more than the cyber forty thousand dollar base price. But UNLIKE TESLA LLC plans to sell the endurance to commercial customers buying fleets of trucks since revealing the prototype on June twenty-fifth Ellen Mc says it's received more than twenty seven, thousand pre orders. That's one point four, billion dollars worth of trucks. NCO Burns says its first years worth of trucks are now sold out. That is if it can raise the money, it needs to actually make them l.. AMC. Bought the Lordstown Ohio GM plant that shutdown last year when GM killed the last Chevy Cruz that six million square foot plant needs retooling, which is costly MC plans to raise about six hundred and seventy five million dollars through its IPO. That boatload of cash could help it come through on its boast to be first to market among a group of EV pickup truck competitors in addition to Tesla that group includes Ford GM Nikola and Arabian a company backed by Ford and Amazon. So, here's the obvious L.. He doesn't yet have a product just a prototype if you're wondering how the young startup can go public without a product you should be. L. EMC is one of a handful of electric vehicle makers employing what's called a reverse merger that means the company that plans to make a product like LLC hooks up with the so-called blank check business. It's also called a special purpose acquisition company. SPAC. Is doing the reverse merger with a blank check company called Diamond Peak Holdings. Diamond peak is already publicly traded that means when the merger occurs. LLC. MC becomes public sort of like easing into a coat someone else has been wearing. This back door IPO method is easier for companies to do. They don't have to produce expensive roadshow's. Also, avoid a great deal of financial scrutiny by the SEC. One of the most famous reverse murders was Richard Branson's space company Virgin Galactic, Holdings and Fantasy Sports Company draftkings went public in a three billion dollar reverse merger. Last year according to the A. Times. The number of reverse mergers hit a record high last year. That's because the IPO market was volatile and high profile IPO's like Uber Fared. Poorly. It ain't cheap to build a new car company but Tesla's successes inspiring other entrepreneurs to try and they need oodles of money that helps to explain why another electric truckmaker nickel motors used a reverse merger to go public in June and vehicle-maker. FISKER has a reverse merger in the works. The is green truckmakers may see these back door IPO's as the speediest way to raise the cash needed to fight he'll in musk and rapidly launched their new products. Tesla's promising to deliver the cyber took by late twenty, twenty one which means that the deadline to beat yes. It may be tough to knock Tesla on it's pedestal, but LLC and a raft arrivals are sure going to try.

I got on the phone and called a friend of mine. I have a few people that are on the favorites list. In the beginning my favorites list on my iphone was was my family. Pretty much family do many friends on there. Just might just my family kids things like that. And then Over time I recognize calling some folks And checking in on a more regular basis. I'M GONNA ask you to. My favorite list was a big deal to get on my favorite. This it's like being on my friends list on facebook. It's not too many over there. I keep kind of lean got picky about that stuff. Big Your friends have to support me and I have to support them. Anything in between is really not worth dealing with so called my friend. He lives in Connecticut to travel the world. We talk occasionally. He's a he's a coachie coach. Kinda guy always on the road always traveling always studying now. He's getting sparked by talking to him. We we often will save the problems. We'll solve the problems of the world and save the world in one one phone call. It's pretty easy so I called up actually to see if we could solve the problems of the world over the course of this phone call. I thought why not you know it's going to a slower than I would like so maybe I can actually put her mind to it and say we can do so. I called him up and he picked up the phone. I asked why said Wolf. Hey what are you doing to save the world? Yeah somewhat joking. But his answer really didn't surprise me. He said well literally. I only watch twenty minutes of TV a day. That's at twenty minutes of news a day. I can stay in touch. They'd give kind of goes he rift on me said because I find that if I watch any more than that I lose my productivity. It's impossible to watch that news and a have any any sense of what you really want to do. I'm with him on that by the way and he says I write. I get my work. Done helped my kids with school in general doing pretty much everything to stay grounded. Keyword there grounded. You're looking at picked up the phone. I knew I was at that point. He's busy I'm part of that day. Right he said how how about you what are you doing. Well told him that he was looking at decided to call them in the first place. Because I'm kind of in the same spot I don't initiate anything. That's GonNa bring drama into my life particularly with my drama. My life is drama right now. All of our lives drama right now and I'm pretty much the same except playing with dogs and kids. Alpacas will I refuse to let this crazy carousel of life? That most folks writing right now to become my right of choice not going to happen. You talk for a while. Actually talked for two hours covered every conceivable topic. You could imagine now. I don't think we actually saved the world. I'm really not sure yet. Haven't seen the result. May it may happen. It may happen because you want you start thinking and talking and it gets out kind of into the ether in the universe before you know it's out there and then people start hearing what you've been thinking and they talk taking action which you will you know how all that works right just a cool conversation putting some thoughts and thoughts very powerful things and they get out to the most powerful thing in the world or your thoughts and when you put them out there my goodness you start acting differently and people people start reacting to you differently. Don't they it Kinda feel something? You don't really know exactly what's going on but then something's going on so they. Kinda WANNA hang out a little bit or maybe an idea POPs in their head in the middle of the night in a dream. They don't even know why who knew. It was because I decided to interrupt my friends day and call him and see how he was doing and just chat about how to how solve all the problems of the world now will admit back in the day about twenty five years ago. I used to do it over a bunch of beer. I'd go into a city and meet a friend so it's got to have some beer and save the world that never worked back then. This one may have a little bit more power so I don't think we did but but I think we are. Certainly working on on. Saving ourselves are we. I reaching out by having that conversation. Are You doing that? Or you're reaching out to people around your those conversations it's crazy how this crazy agenda-driven world that we're in right now it's crazy how we are isolated in a way that is blocking us again at the same time we're able to reach out and plug into the simple joys of life. Are you doing that right now? Are you finding a way to plug into the things that just makes sense to you? Are you working with those kids? Are you baking cookies? Are you working in the yard? I've been to home depot recently. I'll tell you what there's a lot of y'all work in the yard because you can't check out at home depot y'all by all the flowers all those wheelbarrows and everything are all out there. And they're all gone now so. I'm assuming you do kind of the simple stuff in life. The more you pay attention to that the more you will will keep your sanity and keep your optimism. Keep your spirit.

"richard branson" Discussed on The Model Health Show
"He's brought in by Nike and by Richard Branson Will Smith than just the list goes on and on the impact and the influence that he has. And I four time guests on the motto health show, my friend are man, Jim quick was a super Sean this. It's a real honor. Thank you. It's my pleasure, man. I'm in your territory, you know, we had to macgyver the studio. I was really of. But man, I'm just so happy to see you as always. As you've had such a big impact on my life is so many areas meta share with you many times. But I'm pumped to talk about some of this new stuff, man. We've talked about exhilarated learning talked about optimizing our memory when talk about thinking faster today. Yeah. That's really what it's about. It's it's funny because you mentioned macgyver. Macgyver is an incredible thinker. Right. He has a maybe very little resources. And I think a lot of people could identify with that he because it's not everything's equal. We have different people have different networks have different levels of education. They have different levels of finances, and such but macgyver took like bubble gum, and some some trade made a parachute. Exactly, his one of his superpowers is the ability to think, and I know we've talked about speed reading and focus and memory in the past, and you and I were kind of geeking out about critical thinking like our life right now. Is reflection of our thinking because how we think determines what we focus on in determines. How we feel it determines what we do. And so really the some of our thinking really reflects our day to day life in our in our relationships in our health in our habits in our career. You know, I always thought it was interesting back in school. They teach you more what to think, but not how to think, and I think that's one of the big challenges in a world where everything is being outsourced overseas. Jobs, and right, or it's being automated their software that could do a lot of, you know, left brain jobs, or there's a, you know, something like artificial intelligence, you know, what what what do we have as human beings? What makes us human makes us valuable in in life in the workplace?.
"richard branson" Discussed on We Study Billionaires - The Investors Podcast
"Be so cold assertive or you can be be tripling. And if you are assertive, it means that you typically self-assured even-tempered resistant to stress so that would be someone like Richard Branson. Meaning you don't spend too much time thinking about past actions or choices and not would other people think of you. I wanted to address that because a lot of that is formed in your early years. And it's not always something you can change whenever you grow up. It's not something you can just be like, oh, Richard Branson dozen care like he just starts L. I want to do the same. I don't wanna discourage anyone when talk about this. And whenever I say that a lot of his fixed. This is purely empirical it's sort of like this if you were short, you can probably still be good basketball player, but you just do not have the same advantages as someone who is six six house. It's important whenever you're talking about that way of life that way of taking chances to learn more about yourself in terms of how do you react to failures? How do you react to the experiences? Life's throat you the reason why I also wanted to play. This question was really to address that and to encourage people to do something that is fit for them and where they have their own strings. This is not only something that I'm saying, I think most people know both president we heavily influenced by rebellion in his book principles. And this is one of the key takeaways took from that book is he's testing himself and his testing everyone on the team. I think they even have like baseball cats. It Brits born in terms of pinpointing. What is people Gouda and whether or not good at? And what should that person? Do want to throw that out there. The website is called sixteen personalities dot com, which has been the men's they have full both me and for everyone on T IP, and it's heavily influenced by rebel you. And I just wanted to bring the up here. Now, we're talking about Richard Branson in his own way, extreme personality, and why that's such a strength in terms of of what he's doing something else that I wanted to dress in there. He was talking about how they always start a business from the ground up. They reminded me of a pretty famous book that we read a while back, and maybe we can have the link to it in the show notes. And it's called the innovators dilemma to book written by Clayton. Christianson think he's out of Harvard. Right Harvard, professor the main premise of the book is that when a company wants to start a new product or service that is really kind of outside of their lane. Oftentimes, the best way to go about it is to literally separate it from the business it self give the manager who's ever identified to start this business full reins to stay. It from the ground up, and almost as if they're completely detached from the main company that starting at itself, and I kind of get the sense, especially after this way that Richard Branson answered this question that that's how he operates is exactly what this book was recommending. Now, I definitely didn't do any service to the complexity of everything they Clayton christianson lays out in this book. But that's a general premise, and it seems like Richard Branson has been naturally doing this since the very beginning. So just something else. I noticed in that comment. So for the next question he was asked you have more than two hundred different businesses. How does this work or people coming to you with the ideas? Or are you saying, hey, guys? Let's get in the business. X y and z this is how Richard responded to this. Literally come from frustration. And I think that's the best way for any business to start. Keep your eyes open. You have a notebook in your pocket. You get frustrated. I mean, And the the reason reason. we go into the hotel business that I've had a few too, many drinks to the hotel room content. The buddy muzak of content the lights off this list of about three hundred things that you go through and hotels. Never get things. Right. You know, how to turn the television on why you just go through hell to live on.

"Background was for the brit for the brexit vote and it's interesting to see who comes out on the on different sides of it richard branson has been very vocal from the beginning that brexit was a horrible idea and you know and then wind warren buffett and other very well respected financiers have kind of had the same they are on the same side that it's a really bad idea too bad right very bad money move but i also understand on the other side of it it's similar to what we're dealing with our country now with border security and things like that i i understand that there needs to be reformed but i don't know that completely leaving the e u is really the answer and i think even the fact that there is a quote unquote soft brexit on his novel the answer right and and i think that the but the fact that there's even now soft brexit is is term that theresa may's actually even talking about that could be an indication that she may be you know has your ear to the ground and here is a lot of rumblings that it's not really a great idea and maybe a compromise will end up being the real solution yep she's not exactly the most inspiring nor popular lena england is ever had now so all right so what else have you got well the supreme court is really trending we've got tons of us coming around the supremes yup one that i think is super interesting of course we know the travel ban has been upheld there isn't really it was a surprise apparently even president trump just tweeted wow which is the shortest tweet of his life so they took him by surprise but i think the the travel ban though just for a second if we can capture everybody understands what we're doing is limiting entrance into the us from seven i there i thought at first it was five countries and then two others that have been added i think that's where this seven countries total altogether yeah so justice my air vehemently disagreed with john roberts apparently there's a big argument this is interesting yeah yeah so what's the background so what happened was as a result of the travel ban being reversed or or being upheld in a five four decision the supremes voted along party lines justice sotomayor and justice john roberts got into a heated discussion about the travel ban but the interesting thing was what came out of it was an they overturned the infamous nineteen forty four supreme court decision blessing internment of japaneseamericans during world war two and so in her dissent to the majority's ruling on the travel ban justice sotomayor compared the decision to the core matsu versus us case saying there were stark parallels in the reasoning and she wrote quote as here the exclusion order was rooted in dangerous stereotypes about a particular groups supposed inability to assimilate and desire to harm the united states now that's what she was referring to was in the core matsu versus us case it does actually have if you think about it does have a lot of parallels to what we're talking about now with current quote unquote muslim ban so john roberts was so i guess troubled by this back and forth discussion with the comparison that he he announced the supreme court was going to be overruling core matsu and he actually said this affords this court the opportunity to make express what is already obvious core matsu was gravely were on the day it was decided it has been overruled in the court of history and to be clear has no place in law under the constitution and so it's interesting to go back now and doug you just mentioned this yesterday we were talking about you said what good are the supremes if they're going to overrule something and then changes yeah yeah we were talking about internet and sales tax and things like that and so this is a case they're going all the way back to one thousand nine hundred forty four to overturn this was a huge back in that era this was a huge controversy and it never really it didn't set well with americans and maybe for different reasons than this obviously because the war and the interment of shabbiness americans there wasn't people were they don't really care about what scream court said they wanted people who were asians no matter where they were japanese korean chinese they didn't pay much anybody who slanted eyes they wanted in jail but that's what we have going on now look at all the.
