Interview with Mark Constantine of Lush Cosmetics

"Back. In nineteen ninety-five I was studying in London my sister. Karen. Came to visit me that year. She'd been to London before. So on her visit, she was the guide we traveled through the market stalls Candan lock we picked up some indie records at rough trade and made a special trip to covent garden to visit a newly open shop. Called Lush I hadn't heard of it but my sister had instructions from all friends back in L. A.. Get me stuff from. Lush. Now at the time, it was one of two lush locations in the world, and this is before e commerce. So unless you went to the store, you couldn't get the products. Remember the overpowering smell of roses and lavender and honey and lemon I remember these long loaves of colorful soap laid out on tables where you could slice off a Chonkin pay for it. By weight there were bath bombs and shampoos and lotions. It looked like the produce department at a fancy grocery store. You didn't see a whole lot of plastic packaging and in front of each product, you'd find a bright colorful chalkboard with a description. It was unlike any beauty product store I had ever seen. And it probably explains why then There was a line to get in. Lush was part of a new wave of beauty companies that came onto the scene around that time. Many of them influenced by the body shock and it's iconic founder Anita Roddick who as you will hear features prominently in this story is well. The main founder of Lush Mark Constantine had already seen incredible success and then catastrophic failure by the time he launched his venture. In fact, right before mark. Open Lush. He's lost most of his money on a mail order business that went bust. But. Lush turned his fortunes. And and today it's a brand with more than nine hundred stores around the world. Now, in recent months, the pandemic has hit the company hard. For time all of its stores in the UK, the US and Australia were closed. But. Lush has also seen a massive surge in online orders and later on, we'll get an update on how mark and the company have navigated the pandemic and the global economic fallout. But first a little bit about mark's background. He grew up in weymouth seaside town in the south of England. When he was only two years old his dad's split from the family and went off to Africa and mark never saw him again while he was growing up. And his mother. She took mark and moved in with her mother marks Grandma. It was me my mom, my grandmother who really brought me up a my aunt. So. I was really bored three. Yeah. What did your mom do? She was a journalist in the local newspaper on I knew my mom had to work in order for us to to be okay. It was very, very comfortable life full of love and hugs and security. My mom was always there and I love my nine I looked up to my nine and so it was comfortable. Very nice. Obey. Feminine Life I've felt. Spoilt To be honest, obviously, my nine drilled into me the proper values as well. with proverbs and all sorts of other things you know I I had to rights repeatedly better best never them rest till. My good is better. My better best things like that. But then I guess. Around the time you were twelve. So you like you stopped living with your grandmother like Yulia mom moved out. what happened was they there was larger a my mother married the lawyer we moved to my grandmother died. I didn't realize probably until much later in my life high much that'd affected me I felt responsible. I think from my grandmother's death for most of my life because obviously I was important to her and I wasn't there anymore and I couldn't after her and she died on then my my stepfather was. Very, cold I would say and violent. But that's very typical upbringing fifties because they'd come is war gentlemen. There was a lost friends some of them had seen that friends killed or relatives and So it was you know not surprising that those people were bringing up my generation went all the best balanced people in the world. What kind of I mean what kind of kid were you? What do you remember about how you responded to those circumstances? Did you I don't know retreat into yourself or did you act out? Did you fight with your mom? What do you remember or didn't fire my mom but I force a lot with my Stepdad physical fights and they would argue we would all argue. It was just I want to say unsatisfactory which doesn't side like this is like a strange word to use it but. Certainly when I came to build my own home I, for example, never locked the front door. You know I I make an effort on those smaller things that tell people that they wanted to. Careful. Kid were you at school? Are you could student? School was still difficult for. Really. Was it was just heart for you. I. Mean there were a lot of gangs. Gangs were normal in the fifties for for everyone there were lots of gang. So I went to the grammar school, which was the best school in. The top ten percents shoots went to the grammar school. Everyone's surprise when I got in. And then I wasted it while I. was there except that I did make friends and we were in particular gang where we could make. Bombs and things. Can. Make bombs. What we were the news like. PIPEBOMBS. They were we killing sugar bombs with batons permanganate. Glycerin Fuses also savings on we went making them for the IRA season, the Perron purposes to intimidate other gang.

Is the Netflix documentary "Cutie" breaking federal law?

"Alone. Welcome to best case worst case this is Jim Clemente retired profiler former New York City prosecutor writer-producer CBS's criminal minds with today's high everybody. It's Francey, Hague's former state and federal prosecutor. Jim. Across the country and if it's possible, I'm even more outraged. Shall I say enraged than I was last week I find it. I. Don't know very believable. Because I know you but I know what you're outraged and enraged about. I agree with you tim I don't understand what's happening. You know we've we've done what is happening I. Don't know we've done. I don't know how many episodes where we've talked about. Hollywood. We've talked about power position predators. We've talked about a Hollywood sexualizing we talked about that movie call me by your name I remember that one member that you and I saw that. and. Just being outraged at the sexualizing of children and in that movie if I'm not mistaken, there was a nineteen year old actor playing a fifteen year old boy I think if I remember correctly. and. That was bad enough because it was depicting. The sexualization of a child even though it wasn't an actual trial here Jim in the newest entry into net flicks Pantheon, we have a movie called well in English. It's called cuties and it was released just last night as you are recording here. So on September ninth here in the US. Anyway it was released on Netflix said it's a French movie I think the original title was something like Lehman Mignon. Which I would. You know I was a French minor but French is a longtime ago for me I, thought meant the little ones but maybe it means cuties regardless. The Americanized is name is called cuties. And Jim. I didn't see the movie yet. But I've seen a clip of a dance from the movie before we get into the discussion of the movie. Let me just tell people who haven't seen the clips and you haven't seen the description of the movie. What is purportedly about? This movie is described by various media critics who've seen it. As a coming of age tale, a young girl fighting against the patriarchy. Now, how is she coming of age how she fighting against the Patriarchy this eleven year old she joins she's a Muslim child and she joins a dance troupe. Wow. That sounds interesting. Right she's breaking out of her cultural barriers whatever they might be or whatever she perceives them to be. She joins a child's dance troupe with a bunch of other eleven year old well, that sounds perfectly innocent. Well not really however. It's really not Jim because you and I have seen the clip why don't you take it from here? Well, for not I did just see the clip and I was shocked I was shocked at two things one the focus of the camera. On the general areas of young girls very deliberately. Very, sustained, very purposefully. But I'm also shocked by the fact that this depicts a dance competition and in the dance competition, these girls are on stage in public. Doing these you know basically dance moves and I'm using those air quotes that are that are basically saying and touching their general areas and a showing off between their legs I mean. They're simulating sex. That's the that's certainly a very. Easy determination or that's an argument that. CAN EASILY BE. Made. So, this bothers me for two reasons. One is that. It's apparently a competition that they're in in which this kind of behavior is actually. Promoted and encouraged. But the documentary style of it. Is that they are showing close ups of these girls is one thing if they're thirty, forty, fifty feet away on a stage, but to have a camera. where the entire screen is filled with the Crotch of an eleven year old girl and the camera is focused on that and again it's sustain it's not just passing. That is part of the definition of child pornography when a child is centralized in a way and they don't have to be naked for it to be child pornography but the image has to be focused on the Genitalia or on sexual activity, and even if that's mimicking sexual activity is putting a child in a sexualize situation and I believe that this does that. In fact, and I, I don't know what the rest of this movie is about but it's scary to think that this is just one scene in movie that that purports to do things like for example. There's a parental warning apparently on imdb would says, one of the many highly sexualize erotic dance scenes. That purposefully exploit an objectify numerous scantily clad underage girls. One of the female child dancers lifts upper crop top to fully display her bare breast. This they're saying. This is supposedly literally pulled from my md be yes. That's pulled from my MTV which they've changed as of now this this has just been a massive explosive controversy over the last twelve hours Jim and you're absolutely right. I. Hate telling you that because God? Usually wrong. But here you're absolutely right. It does fit the definition at least in the United States the federal definition for child pornography, which is the lascivious display of the genitals for the purpose of arousing the sexual desires of the viewer. There is no other way to describe how these children are dancing and that IMDB description minimizes it by saying it's sexualizing or Roddick with underage girls. They're eleven, years, old eleven what is that? Fifth. Grade. Fourth Grade. That's it's crazy that anyone thinks that this is okay. But the most important thing to me is that I think it might be a federal crime. It certainly fits the definition now in federal law in this country, there is an exception if it's art, but that is required to provide a whole bunch of information to the Attorney General of the United States about the age of the actors when there's any depiction. The age of these actors is clearly under eighteen. There's no question about it. Not Right now, typically Hollywood gets away with it by having someone who has just turned eighteen play somebody who's younger but that's not what's going on here and there was among the years ago called kids I think and they did the same thing they had actually young people and although they didn't actually they sort of hit the sexual parts, they suggested it. But this because of the music that's playing in the background that's clearly of a sexualize nature because of the humping that's going on and the touching of the general areas by these girls, and then you know the cutesy sucking on the finger. To, make it seem like an innocent girl is being sexualize. It's all together. It really does make me. Believe that they are they are violating federal child pornography statute and I think that that's something that you know it's not just well, this is a French movie and we're trying to be open minded this this this description goes on to say. Trigger Warning and eleven year old girl watches a female rap music video where naked women role play through dance both heterosexual lesbian sex acts an eleven year old. Female. Dance Group then mimics these sexual moves, the on themselves and on each other while the camera zooms in on their sexual body parts as they erratically rise. This can be highly distressing to many viewers. Covered Hani legal.

I'm I'm the skeptic and if this is your first time let's see tests where an Algebra q? Paranormal comedy podcasts. And this is a full episodes and this is the first time listening. Are We pick a topic already? And we're GONNA share some really fun history and information in stories and then I talk about why people don't believe or ID bunket and he talks about why people do and this topic is going to be kind of all over the place. Yeah well it's while actually. This is being recorded before Valentine's Day but it will come out after all times day but just soon after. I like the Monday after. Yeah so that'll be fine so first year. We did a valid special APHRODISIACS than last year. We did it crimes of the heart of the heart and I totally forgot about that and they still hate Valentine's because guess who's alone again this year. Some you know what I mean I. I'll see your cat would totally does it. He so loving. He can't give me a the had taken me on a day. You don't know anyways. We decided on an episode about go for it. Because you don't know how I don't I don't because to me. It's really close to aphrodisiacs. Not really because I'm talking about different things because me too. I mean it's dedicated to love about fertility and different aspects and it was kind of like love objects like a pair of marrying object started altered the yeah but we both kind of diverged bid and mine is technically true. It's a paranormal love object. You'll see I know. They're not paranormal. But they're both true are they okay. Mine is definitely definitely. Parents factual okay. That'll be a good a good like mix then fake minor. Fake just like my breasts. I want to do a whole episode though. On how? And then I'll debunk them. You don't lead them people. You're beautiful just the way you are anyways so so that I don't know what you have to do drinks history you already. What are you categorize this topic? What are you calling it does love? I guess so because love adjacent I can say what my half is. I'm actually talking all about SPEKTR affiliate. Which is people who fall in. Love and have sex with ghosts. I WanNa do a whole topic on this because as I was looking into it. It is wild and my stories. I don't present a lot of information. Actually none in the stories are really just kind of sex and so I think we could still do an exploration of the topic in the future. An I whole heartedly encourage it because yes and mine are ones are more related to fertility. GonNa save more advocates. His biological clock is ticking. So should we do drinks while he already been drinking? No I have another one. This is this is my backup drink. That tastes good. You said it tasted grows well better than the other thing I got about that. What does it okay? Well first let me get my main one so I was still and I admit when I grab this. I was still on the topic of aphrodisiacs. Because that's what we did our Minnesota on and so I found the reason I got back up because it's an gross but it is called moon juice. I've had oh and I'm like and that's to me whenever we're thinking of Wu and we learned that at the UFO con from now on. I encourage everyone else to do this. I'm calling APHRODISIACS. Move Juice because it's Wu and this is a giant forty of galactic IFA. It's going to be disgusting. Santan makes good beer. Yes it does make beer. I like their stuff as a backup because we're talking about Valentine's Day. I got a sweet strawberry so chocolate covered strawberries and it's paying so it's Valentine's I'm rationalizing shut up by his Valentine's and it's called a cupid's kiss ooh in a while it's my take on it because I couldn't find all the ingredients I wanted at the grocery store specific literally just a glass of sprite specifically orange bidders. I couldn't find anyways. That's cool so what it hasn't it is muddled raspberries and meant lime juice. Garvey and then white cambric juice and then they put some concern. Oh my God. I have to try this. That sounds so amazing. If anyone likes really happy as I think you're really like this. It's vile open with him. It's disgusting because dump it out for fun. Okay let's get back on track history history since we're talking about well since I'm talking about fertility and love and all that other bullshit I thought I'd talk about these are actually. He's telling personal true story. Talk about something sort of related different. Okay nothing says law like Erotica. So I'm going to give you a brief history on erotica first off the word. Erotica derives from the Greek God Eros Sherm who was God of Love Physical Desire and passion. She knew this in Roman mythology. He's known as Cupid Erotica has been around for thousands of years and is historically depicted in all cultures and some guy can really imagine like way like ancient people. Jacking up to cave drawings actually drawing the monk is it really did it. They go about that okay. Although it cannot really be said of many of the depictions that have been found. Were for pleasure for some aesthetic purpose or ritual aspect because you have to admit as Horny. Teenagers repressed reject off to some weird stuff. Maybe you okay. I checked off to some stuff like you would just see like I mean a picture in like a book. Nancy drew of Ned Nickerson playing football jack. Anyways there are cave. Paintings have been found depicting sexual acts erratic has been found in every era from Greek and Roman textbooks from the Middle Ages. The piece of Erotica found is a poem called Istanbul. Two four six one which was written on Sumerian cuneiform tablet and what year two for sixty. One I Dunno okay. It's pretty damn all. If it's on a cuneiform tablet bedded hasn't been translated. Do they know it says erotic you'd have to know is good. Even the Bible itself has a whole Chapter Song of songs at talks about sexual longing and love between a man and a woman To state the obvious Roddick wasn't always available in ancient times a little more so once the printing press was invented. That's true because you couldn't walk into the basalt tagline. Yeah this megastore by stone tablet with porn. I never that's true. Yeah so according to my research erotica really started to develop around the seventeen hundreds at the time. That novel started to become popular One of these early books came out in seventeen forty eight by John Cleland called memoirs of a woman of pleasure or more commonly known as Fannie Hill Fatty Fatty hills a widely known as one of the most prosecuted and banned books in history. Wow in the late seventeen. Hundreds of France we got books from the Marquette. Assad which exemplified sadomasochism. Obviously these books would have a huge influence on future novels with similar themes Because of the PURITANS Erotica started to become taboo and was considered unsophisticated during that era the quality of Erotica that time also obviously seem to decline although in the eighteen hundreds we did get some of the beginnings of male gay erotica the books the sins of the cities of the plane and the Tahiliani or the reverse of the medal but Erotica didn't start to again become popular until the early nineteen hundreds in the mid one thousand nine hundred erotic novels from Henry Miller Vladimir Nabokov an ice in one form of Erotica. It also became popular at this time. Was that of lesbian pulp fiction Yeah and may gay pulp. Fiction would also become a thing although not as popular as lesbian really occas. Yeah okay. Can I think statistically women read more erotic romance also into women being with each other so that true that too yeah so popular authors begin to write erotic under often underpin names such as Anne Rice? Who wrote the sleeping beauty quartet under the name? A N

Maybe You Should Talk to Someone

"Today. I'm very excited to have Lori gottlieb on the podcast godly a psychotherapist and New York Times bestselling author of. Maybe you should talk to someone which is currently being adapted as a television series with eve. Longoria I think that's how you pronounce her name. In addition to our clinical practice she writes the Atlantic's weekly dear therapist advice column and contributes regularly to the New York Times and many other publications. She's also sought after expert in media such as the today show. Good Morning America the CBS early show CNN and NPR's fresh air worry. This is amazing to talk to you today. Sell excited to have this conversation with you have ever opened up the pike. As we're saying amazing talking to you today it was nice chatting with you too. So this is I really. I really mean it. Your book is terrific it is. I finished it last night. Finally finished last night. I've been like chipping away at it for like a while because life keeps getting in the way so how you wrapped everything up. I was in tears and I can't imagine like how someone could be human and read your book and not be in tears by the by the end of your book. Yeah you know. I really wanted people to have the experience that I had when I was seeing these patients. And so I hope that people feel a lot when they're reading the book. Oh I felt quite a bit it in fact I saw red. I finished the book right before I went to sleep and my dreams last night. We're so weird. I feel like they were like partly tied to. The story is near Book and partly tied to like my mom like I was like. I woke up this morning. I was like mom I miss you. She's still alive. I WanNa see you every day and I'm like where did that come from. I thought I didn't like my mom. Joking JOKING I. I love to hear this. You know I know I know. I love her lower but but I've been trying to put my distance between me and her a little bit because she's a very over protective Jewish mother. But but but just reading your book I just like it made me want to like hold onto time as much as possible. It's always something I've had an issue with anyways like the idea of time passing by has always always been roddick about that ever since. I was actually in counseling. A little kid over that because it freaked me out especially if a ringer book now as well. It's like it's heightened my appreciation of everyone in my life. Yeah I think most people don't think about that until they get to a certain age and You know so in the book I follow these four very different patients and then I'm the fifth patient and they think that woven throughout all of our stories is this question of. How do we want to spend our time? you know. Are we being intentional about how we're spending our time or are we just squandering it away and I hope that You know when you read the book that it made you. It didn't scare you but then it made you be more aware of. What am I doing with my life? It did absolutely it. Didn't scare me no It just made me appreciate Just ahead more gratitude yearbook. Remind your mind me kind of like a modern day or irving all of it. I mean I don't think there's anyone else who's done what he's done before since you You know you know in in terms of being a therapist and writing such compelling stories About their patients. And even you know the X. essential theme of your writing in particular has been an influence on your work. He has definitely I. I read him when I was in medical school at Stanford and he of course was at Stanford and He Can you read it pleasing? Everyone is impossible but pissing everyone off as a piece of cake. I'm absolutely absolutely I. I had a cup I would be drake into that too so I so. I corresponded with him. A little bit and met with him when I was at Stanford briefly and that was a million years ago and then I reconnected with him when I wrote this book and it really nervous giving this book to him Because you know he's such a master at bringing people into the therapy room in a way that universal it doesn't feel like it's about therapy but it feels like it's about the human condition and he was so lovely and such a fan of the book in and I actually was supposed to do an event with him in the bay area when I was on book tour and he became ill and couldn't do the event and his son who's also a psychotherapist. Victor did the event with me. And it meant so much to me to have the yellows you know supporting this absolutely and now you have Kauffman supporting it. You're you're made. I was like the icing on the cake when I got coughing supporting it but no I'm I'm such a big fan of his work as well. I reached out to a couple years ago. I was in San Francisco's like hey can I come over to your house and talk to you. And he's like sure like I spent an afternoon with him and like we talked about so much it turned out. He was friends with the role. May One of my favorite psychotherapists and he was. He was on his deathbed. Yeah will I did. Because Rallo may was was his therapist at one point. Exactly that's exactly. Yeah but he's so generous in that way to say to somebody. Yeah just come over. And and he thinks about the world in a way that I think he tries to encourage everybody else to which is to really consider you know. What do you want to do with your time on this planet? And he talks about these fundamental themes of human existence. And your book is full of those themes. And if you see enough patients you'll just like it's basically like doing a subjective factor analysis non-objective factor houses but subjectively. You start to notice like there's these groupings like these things keep over over. We we all think. We're like so unique. Our problems are so. I'm the only one suffering with guilt. Redemption meaning mortality loneliness. Love but you see enough patients you start to see these themes over and over again. How does that impact sort of your own life and thinking about these teams and how they play on your own life at such a such a great point because they think that we all know that everybody else experiences heartbreak and grief and loss and joy and all of those things but when it happens to us we think that hours particularly unique that no one has experienced it in exactly the same way so you know the book opens with me going through this break up and of course I feel like well you know? It's very specific to me. And I know intellectually that so many other people have experienced something like this but the way that it happened in the play by play that I keep giving by therapists. I really want him to understand my unique experience. And what you see as a therapist is that we're all more the same than we are different and I think that there are so many times that we feel isolated in our experiences because we don't realize how connected our experiences are to everybody else's and I think that when you know the title of the book is maybe you should talk to someone and I don't necessarily mean maybe you should talk to a therapist. I mean maybe we need to talk to each other more because we do feel so alone in our experience in the more that we talk to people and really talk to people. The more will realize that. Oh you know other people have experienced exactly this. We're having this conversation. I was having this conversation students just yesterday. I had a large election hall and I just put up. A poll at students can do anonymously with their with their cell phones. And I just put the question. Are you only and I get yes or no I wanted to do is for them to all see. Just how lonely. Everyone else was in the classroom now. I was praying that I would get a good number on the yes just just to make it worth the point. Although if it wasn't the not actually would be good for good for the students if they weren't really but anyway it came out about thirty. Three percent said yes and I said that's really telling like just think on your campus one out of every three people that you walk past in this campus has the experience of. Im willingly and no one's smiling each other. No one's I'd I'd try and experiment yesterday where I try to smile at everyone that I passed you try. You don't ever try that New York City think nothing is wrong with you. Rain for the mental institution. Yeah you know. It's interesting because they think that no matter what people come in with on there. Is this kind of loneliness in the background. Even if they're surrounded by people even if they you know have families and friends in all of those things I think that we're so disconnected in so many ways that we don't realize how lonely we are just for the simple act of sitting face to face with another person uninterrupted. Like you're doing therapy for fifty minutes. But people don't do that outside because they've got something ping or digging or vibrating ringing and they're always distracted. And there's there's something so Connecting I think and it feels so good to be able to sit with someone face to face in the same physical space. Not mediated by screen or facetime And really just sit there without any interruptions we. We have so few opportunities for that

Sepsis Is A Global Killer. Can Vitamin C Be The Cure?

"Mattie Safai in the House with Richard Harris yet another one of my favorite science correspondence must be all your favorite special. That's what my mother always said. You're all my favorite Richard. You have some serious business to discuss today. Indeed indeed I do yes. I'm GonNa Talk to you about sepsis right so for anybody who might not know. Sepsis is actually caused by the body's reaction to an infection basically the immune system overreacts causing this huge inflammatory response. Blood vessels get a leaky which messes up. How blood flows throughout the body body? In severe cases. Septic shock can set in. And that's when your blood pressure drops to dangerously low levels sometimes leading to multiple organ failure and in death doctors treat that initial infection and they can try to manage the dangerous symptoms of Sepsis. But there's no cure for it that's right and as a result assault is the single most expensive condition in. US hospitals best estimate is that it strikes one point seven million people a year in the United States and kills more than a quarter million. Wow so it's a huge toll right and one of the reasons. It's so common is because a lot of different types of infections can result in sepsis many roads into sepsis but even though it's a huge deal we don't really talk about it that much in. That's kind of weird isn't it is such a common condition but it isn't even bigger problem. Globally thirty thousand people die of it every single day. That's why it's a huge number. It's truly under appreciated disease. And why I'm telling you the story today is because the results have been published important new study on the treatment of Sepsis with the transfusion of simple mixture really vitamin C.. And Fireman thion which is vitamin B. One that's right and also some corticosteroids. These are all cheap and readily available drugs so today in the show the journey to find a cure for sepsis. Yes we hear the latest on this wild claim about a potential cure of vitamin C drug cocktail. Okay Okay Richard. When you were first telling me about this you said you actually got to talk to somebody a few years ago? Who received this newfangled treatment right? I was interested in really following how this evolved volve this this audacious idea and seeing where it would go and actually a number of doctors immediately started picking up and started using it at least on their most desperately ill patients and talked to one of them. This guy with an incredible story in Christopher Kelly who had this horrid logging accident this is out in Seattle I was cutting for a logging outfit up on these rock cliffs and fell about one hundred and fifty foot for tree into these maple trees. They add a bunch of dead tops we call them widow makers mhm tree came down the butt of it bounce toward him crushing him. I heard the bones crunch when it got me. It was pretty precarity Yell for a minute. And then I'd pass out and I guess my ribs were ripping. My lungs is the reason I I was only you know in and out of consciousness. And Amazingly he was there for a couple of hours before a couple of other men working in the area found him and got him on a Medevac helicopter to harborview medical center in Seattle in the Wendy says he wound up with a shattered pelvis all of his ribs. Broken twenty two bones and Dane. The day I met him. He developed a very high fever along with shock. That's one of Kelly's doctors at David car-bomb who realized that Sepsis was beginning to set in so sepsis is one of the big risks and injuries like this because infections sometimes time start on the wounds on the skin or from inside the lungs or internal injuries or whatever and the infection of course can turn into septic shock which is the nastiest form of this condition. When Oregon's start to fail that often leads to death and as we mentioned earlier? There's no known cure for SEPSIS. That's right car-bomb could treat the underlying infection with antibiotics Roddick's but he was also one of a set of doctors who had actually started experimenting with his new treatment of vitamin C and firemen and steroids and discuss it with his son and his son and was very amenable. We talked about The fact that it's a new therapy that there really wasn't very strong evidence but I felt that it was not a ton of risk and that this could be beneficial. How did it work Richard? Well hold on how quickly to respond. Usually patients very sick for a few days before responding antibiotics and him it took about a day his fever head cleared and he was off the medicines to support his blood pressure and looked remarkably better. But this is not actually a totally new new idea at all. I mean vitamin CS. Curative Properties have been batted around for decades and decades. A lot of. It's kind of Kooky so that actually works against this argument people initially and understandably skeptical about it but that said it is true that people who have sepsis have surprisingly low levels of vitamin C in their blood. So there's some biological logical plausibility to doing this right.

Shaping the Emerging Bioeconomy

"Jason. Thanks for joining us. It's my pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about synthetic biology the emerging bio economy the effort to give voice to industry on policy matters related to it. I think what we talk about biotechnology people still. We'll have a furry narrow view around human therapeutics when we talk about the emerging bio-economy. What does that envision? How significant is the Dan? How far is it extending beyond healthier so this is a really great question that we could probably spend the entire time? He's talking on that one on topic so let me let me try to break it up a bit and make it a little more bite size so the way bats that we think about the bio economy today today is is a very different view than what we will be thinking. Five ten fifteen twenty years down the road as we look at how the economy develops but but fundamentally finally the the concept around the Bio Connie is as we know all all things world have cycles and economic cycles exist as well and there are macro economic cycles such as the industrial revolution which really drove development hardening of industrial processes. All the way from you know the concept of assembly line nine and manufacturing of course the economy continues to transition. We've moved from very much of an industrial economy to a knowledge. It and service based economy that we releasing blossoms through Silicon Valley and of course Kendall Square in Cambridge Massachusetts and very identifiable You know areas where we see. Okay that's that. It knowledge say service continental where we fundamentally believe that the next iteration economy is really going to be powered on biology. Had I'll say that some of the concepts that will throw out here today during our conversation might make your head spin of it because you'll think how does biology really get involved in say transportation Or how does biology get involved in computing or how does biology. Of course we think about biology from a healthcare all care perspective but how does that healthcare view of biology change as as a function of time and I always brings back to one thing I think is interesting about the violence is it. It's real and people will see especially consumers were now starting to see translate to true consumer product. So so you know if I would have told you. Ten years ago that you'll have a protein source that tastes like these can be put on a barbecue and put between two vons on Patty. And you think you're eating beef. You'd would probably laugh at me because they're used to those horrible soy solutions that existed ten years ago whereas like cardboard with a little bit of softness. Well now of course we all hear about impossible burgers and beyond meats and and you know truly plant tasting proteins. That's a great example of how this economy is really going to change and it's going to be very visible able to see everybody in the country and not just the folks who may be involved in say the IT industry where we service a knowledge economy of all so Valerie's incredibly powerful and we know that things we manufacturers today will be manufactured by Washington in the future. And I think you know food. Roddick's is a great example of that with kind of novel foods and beyond beats but you'll see a transition to materials. We hear about Adidas Pudding outs tennis issues. Now that are manufactured from synthetic spider silk. And you're starting to see these fruit. Innovations really accelerate into the commercial markets. Advances isn't synthetic biology are enabling the engineering microorganisms to replacement processes that would previously have been conducted through through chemistry. What's it a case for using biology rather than traditional chemical processes? That's a great question I mean so there's obvious Syria around things like sustainability So many chemical processes require hydrocarbons or require organics to to manage those chemical processes disease and hydrocarbons Gannex largely come from trillium products. And we know that there's a limited duration of accessibility to fossil fuels in Detroit. Him and there's obviously a very vigorous debate on the impact of those compounds and chemicals on the environment and we know that biology has existed for billions of years and has continued need to add to the diversity of life and the ability to harness biology to start manufacturing products that previously were manufactured through chemical processes has as I mentioned before huge Say Environmental Sustainable aspects. There's also economic drivers associated with that as well and I'll use a real world example The there is a strong corpus of knowledge that can have annoyed how long or pubic properties and within cannabinoid Avenue. It's you have to largely active compounds you have. THC which is the compound that makes us feel high when people use marijuana and then their CD which is the compound that people people believe how the majority of the therapeutic properties well to truly enable CD DVD used and research purposes and political purposes isn't eventually therapeutic purposes. It doesn't economically make sense and you can't physically grow enough of the material the crop to having reliable reliable sustainable Say Pharmaceutical quality great product in existence. That has huge thing bill. The issues is a lot of water. A lot of land and It's you know. Obviously like all crops is is accessible to drought and infestation. So the focus now is is to take cbd and take the pathways that express the enzymes that manufacturer CD and explosives in say East. You can then transfer that to a for mentor in your now working on an industrial scale from attention where you can ferments either. CBD as a whole or the enzymes is that are used to create CD in a synthetic process. So you just like you said to sustainability issues. There's this huge economic drivers that really we will will push to biology because we found that biology in many cases is very clean very efficient very economical way to drive manufacturing. Where are we in this effort? What's enabling us to do this way now that we haven't been able to do before well that's a that's a great question question And quite honestly that Is What brought me to the company I work for a company called inscription Scripted we fundamentally believe that biology has unlimited potential to truly improve the human condition. And the reason why we haven't seen the advancements through engineer biology or synthetic biology that we he fundamentally believe the tools are not yet developed a truly exploited the richness of violence and for us at At scripted you know working with our partners who started the bio economy alliance around all other similar view that similar to how we Jim Smart develop from the first team genome sequence to now being able to routine musicals even genomic a day or so on the sequencer that chains that seachange which enable precision medicine. Addison and a lot of the standard of healthcare today. We feel the single invention of that next generation multi parallel sequencer has opened up an entire Tiger area of applications which has fueled a huge industry in precision healthcare and other areas associated. That rely on it you know but read out. We believe conscripted on our partners the bio economy alliance. That's that's saying. Level of innovation is happening now that feeling the bio economy and there are various tools unscripted. We utilize a very powerful thing. You find her to Christopher sue precisely engineer and change the genetic makeup of microbes onto ought to create new fina types that or used to move into bioprocessing manufacturing foods nutrients materials and so on so anyway anyway the the key and as you think about other economic kind of changes in cycles you know the industrialization and the development development of of tools you developments of assembly lines. We moved to the. It and service world is development of the Internet the standards associated with the Internet to be able to transfer information back and forth And again we see this same developments happening now within the world with the next generation generation of tools to allow us to truly explore biology as you understand. Biology is incredibly complex. You know we are just starting to scratched the surface of for knowledge and understanding biology and the next generation of tools. Such as what we're bringing forward and swift does is we firmly believe one of those inflection points to enable bowl biology driver commie. Let's talk about the Bio Comedy Alliance. How who makes it up? What is it and what's it aiming to do? Oh yeah that's a question for the economy in Lyons is is a new entity As a matter of fact we're actually going through the work right now to establish five. Oh one three C I to actually set up a a true nonprofit that we can then use to engage policymakers regulators. Legislators and help understood help educate them and understand the power of violence and how the economy is if you transition so you know. This started about a year ago when John Covers. WHO's the CEO? Syn Bio Veda. Syn Bio Veda is a a trade group batches. Moving John over the years is a tremendous job of bringing together. The mobile fought meters and synthetic biology and through discussions. I had with John. I said you know we need to move beyond a conference and move to be an advocacy group and we need to make sure that we educate the people who are making decisions that impact economic developments and decisions around how we're spending spending funding from basic science research perspective. You know what are the infrastructure issues that will intact dullness violent comedy. So through a couple of months of conversation We solidified around the concept of for me the Bio Konami alliance and it's now Has small group of love of initial Organizations joins including RIPTA twist biosciences Gingko by works perfectly lights And we've we've come together really with a common view that education in policy are going to be critically the importance who are industry but also very important to the development of the economy and so As I said the group was formed about a month ago and we're going through the process. Awesome Sabrina Paperwork together. Although in that short month we've had some great engagements including the invites the White House. They're one's a events about two weeks ago at the White House where they're trying understand the power via academy and that was followed the next day by discussions with specific congressional leaders and their staff not educate them on on the bio. Tommy let me and I'll say something for me personally that was so say reassuring and encouraging about this process is you know. The bio comedy is a non partisan issue. You know we spoke to folks who represented the left side of the aisle and we spoke to folks that represented the right side of the aisle and this is a unifying message we understand. I'm from the United States to maintain global competitive advantage. We need to transition technology and we saw again with industrial revolution. Two Services on T.. And now we know that biology is going to the next driver. So how do we do your comedy to succeed in. Biology is the main driver the other elements elements about the bio economy. That is truly a unifying element is that this is an economic opportunity that can benefit the entire country. You know as we saw the industrial revolution. Certainly benefited the entire contract. Factories going up from Boston to Los Angeles but we did see when we had to transition the the economic drivers in the country from knowledge and service based business or economy rather that it didn't necessarily represent the entire United States. Let's we certainly saw centers of excellence pop up on the cups and that economy largely I mean of course. It benefited the United States but in largely benefited certain regions of the United States. And we now see this with large economic disparity between different regions in the country. Biology has the opportunity to be that that say fair equity across the country. Is We think about how biology moves the manufacturing the ability this up large manufacturing Russillo in the midwest where we haven't traditionally seen it and service industries. Pop up too much is a unifying message so when we were in. DC Our message assiduous well received because it is a message that isn't partisan as a message about US economic security about US leadership In what we need you to do to ensure that likely led the world in the last kind of economic term with it knowledge and service. Based how do we lead that charge large from a biology perspective the biotechnology innovation organization as long included industrial and agricultural biotechnology gene. Its purview along with healthcare. Why the need for another entity presence on the policy front with biotechnology agenda hat? Will Your work differ. Yeah it's actually it's a it's a great question and you know it's it's interesting because Sitting on our border directors at inscriptions Roger Weitz Roger also sits on the board of directors. The Bio. And I've actually engaged with Roger quite a bit around the topic of of you know what is the by line's going to drive. That's perhaps that's different than what bio does and so I will say service is a great organization. It's a large organization represents a lot of voices and for us as a nascent recent industry. That's really driving. You know. Synthetic biology or engineer biology. The focus of bio is so large involved that we need a specialty voice. Because we feel that this next iteration in science is going to have significant economic impact. And there's a different investment thesis that's required for that to manifest become reality so actually you bio as a complement to what we are doing We support bios positions uh-huh matter of fact they submitted a paper today and support of An Office of Technology and science Proposal we also support that to the Bio communites. There's many areas where we work together. But there's some very focused areas that we have more more Desire to drive more decisions And Bio as larger entity has other priorities. That may not completely ally but they're complementary to where we WANNA go so we both organizations operating really in common with each other. You mentioned the meeting at the White House. Summit on America's by accommodate. I know the Department of Defense. The Department of Energy have long been engaged in funding working working biotechnology. But I was surprised during symbolic Beta when there was a representative of the Office of Science and Technology Policy addressing addressing the conference who was trying to make the case for biotechnology but basically saying it was not a top priority of

What's in your Wallet Credit Approval Required Capital One bank. USA NA welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey Rain Steph Lorraine Bogle bomb here. If you're fascinated by mythological creatures love to swim and know the entire score to the Little Mermaid Your time has officially come mermaid ing is an honest to goodness hobby and even career and it's poised to explode at a mermaid school or birthday party near you. All you need is a tale and more on that in a minute a while. It may seem like this popping up out of nowhere. mermaids and Mermen have actually been at it for years. Now we spoke by e mail was Sheila Kaiser Lead Lead Mermaid Instructor at Awkward Mermaid in Austin Texas. She said Mermaid has been around for twenty plus years. I think will only continue to grow in popularity. We teach ages seven to eighty and they have all different reasons for wanting to come then experience being a mermaid or Merman. Yes the Typical Mermaid school has classes for both adults and children and hosts special events like Bachelorette parties we also spoke by email with Kayla. MARAMA armored instructor and Professional Belly Dancer in the Northern Virginia Virginia area. She said I personally have loved mermaids. Since I was young and I also love the water for children when they have the chance to meet a real mermaid and learn from one they often are very excited to do so adults that are interested in mermaid ing tend to do so for a few different reasons to live out a childhood fantasy or to do something different and interesting but she notes. It's a lot harder than it sounds. Indeed Mermaid is definitely best done by confidence swimmers Marama explains. We know no that swimming in any capacity can be a tough workout so one must be a strong swimmer before putting on a tale as a tail adds. A new level of difficulty tells me way between fifteen eighteen and thirty five pounds. That's about seven sixteen kilos. Many Mermaid schools require participants to be able to pass basic swim tests being able to swim at least twenty twenty five meters. That's around eighty feet tread water for a minute and float on your friend and your back in a class you learn the basics of how to swim with a tail plus things like the Mermaid made high five and how to do handstands which soon translate into synchronized mermaids swimming skills some classes also teach kids about caring for the oceans and indeed mermaids swimming is a killer way to get or stay in shape we also spoke by email with co-head Mermaid Rachel Roddick with Aqua Mermaid Chicago. She said it offers a total body workout. From toning your gluts quads and ABS combined with great cardio exercises working on breath control underwater. It's a low impact sport. The benefits from from the boy effect of the water that takes pressure off joints alleviating pain and discomfort at your first class usually just need to wear a swimsuit. The school will normally normally supply the monitoring and the tail skin. The monovalent is a piece of equipment with full pockets that allows you to propel forward in the water while the tail skin is a complete tale. It's pulled on over the modification. If you plan to stick with this you may want to buy your own models run from about one hundred bucks for something basic all the way to five hundred dollars dollars or even three thousand for Realistic Professional Grade Mermaid tails but wait you say you can be professional mermaid. You Bet allthough some people take the classes just for fun and exercise. There's a growing contingent of professional mermaids around the World Uncle Mermaid estimates that there are about a thousand professional mermaids currently working in the United States. There's presently no standard certification program that Almer people must pass but there are a number of mermaid conferences held around the world every year so how does pursue a merger career many pros become Mermaids Swim Instructors Mermaid entertainers at birthday parties events in the like Mermaid eight influencers on Social Media and even Custom Mermaid tail makers. There are also mermaid modeling opportunities to be had for photo shoots or on film. A A friend of mine was a mermaid extra in a recent episode of Hawaii five o much like any career. There's some investment required on the front end to become professional. Mur Person I a potential pro must be a strong swimmer and have a background teaching swimming or synchronized swimming if they plan to be an instructor and other classes can help like early childhood education education courses if you plan on working with kids and Business Courses Mermaid ing is a business after all today's episode was written by Elliott and produced by Tyler claim brain.

Creating Value Messages That Differentiate

"Today's tip comes from Tom. Williams Thomas the chairman and founder of Strategic Dynamics a sales productivity improvement company and the author of buyers centered selling here. He is with today's tip everyone it seems to have their own special secret sauce for crafting a message that differentiates their product from the current supplier chief competitor so let me say from the beginning our are methodism better. It just works so I ask yourself. What makes a message any message interesting potential buyers stakeholder and really there are four ingredients radiant star sauce? I messages whether they are voicemails emails marketing brochures or even formal presentations. Anita have a value claim. Now you know evaluate claim is promise of what the product or solution we'll deliver that benefit of mine organization and some measurable way in short. The message has to connect with a project or initiative. That's relevant to the buyer. The second ingredient is uniqueness. What is your product or service do that. Others can't claim but it can't be just any old. This has got to be one that matters to the buyer so messages should convey a value claim. That's relevant to the buying organization and is unique in a way that the buyer will recognize value to third ingredient is risk aversion if unaddressed risk and kill any deal your messages need a heavy Abi dose of Risk Prevention. What one or two steps will you take to ensure that the Black Swan or one of its ugly duckling doesn't make unexpected visit. How do you predict Dick plan and prevent this dreaded downside and then the fourth element in our secret sauce as the one sellers often forget or ignore and that's urgency you need to I answer this question for the buyer or stakeholder. Why Must I by now. Maybe is to reclaim lost production time or have inventory in place for the holiday season or or maybe to align with the buyers start of their fiscal year. Also what's the dollar value of a quick decision and immediate implementation now. Let's get something straight you. You can't force feed buyers value messages that are long complicated redundant or meaningless so here's some advice that falls into the don't ever do this category. I I don't use language or terminology that may be unfamiliar to the buyer used to buyers language and customize your message second. Don't underestimate the buyers propensity city Toronto to respond with challenging question like I just don't believe you can get this done in that short a timeframe and last don't ever commodities your product Roddick. Don't feed your buyer. METOO messages like our product can match the productivity of any other product in the marketplace. Stay away from cheap messages like when you compare hair all the products in this category you'd be surprised at how inexpensive our product is avoid languages language that commodities on necessarily your product so as you as you craft a mess just don't think value messages of monologues or points of view or an elevator speech value matches are really a twenty second sound soundbite or claim that is meant to arouse interest prompt insight advanced the buying process so think of value messages as headlines that you can and deploy in a conversation to pick stakeholder or buying interest have two or three of these sound bytes show higher product will meet a need critical to overall productivity productivity if you don't have two or three of these value measures to find and committed to memory do so this week and if you want some help please check out chapter for five of our book buyer centered selling how modern sellers engage and collaborate with buyers look for the chapter five says look for value messed as snap crackle on fought

Fixing Things That Aren't Broken

"After we did our launch and we changed it up quite a once a year. I do a launch for my product launch formula. We're coming up on it real soon. We're up to two and a half weeks out from this lodge last year we did it as i completely live experience so normally in my launch process for years years and years and years for for well over a decade we would release a series of videos a series of training videos that would lead into the launch of the product act of my product last year instead of doing that we radically reinvented it and we did it as a live launch so instead of releasing these videos i had thirty thirty four training sessions and each training session went three hours and we still delivered really it was about fourteen hours a free training and ended up being a fantastic experienced a launched fantastic but it was completely new so we took something that was doing really well. We'd have this well oiled launch and we completely blew it up and we reinvented it and we did as a live launch so what's up without like like why did we reinvent something. Why did we break something that was already working and i think really especially if like like one of my core tenants is take what's working. Keep on doing it and really. If you look at it what i did was i did take both working because the core strategy behind product roddick lunch formula is to deliver fantastic value before your launch and once you deliver that fantastic value i like to say like give away your best stuff for free and there are some caveats to that and some some some secret sauce behind it but give massive value and prove worth improve your value improve your already before you actually ask for the sale and if that's the core tenant of parkland formula and it is one of the core tenets behind approximates formula. That's what we did. We just took it that strategy and we use a different tactic which was doing live so why how did we do it live because i just had this sense so i'm i think i do cam video and talking on video right now. I think i do okay envy. I actually i'm. I'm being a little stuffed up deprecating. I actually think i'm quite good video but i do know i'm better why because i do these events and they're absolutely amazing so i said what if i could do that life and what if because i was doing it live i could i could edit a bunch more elements and deliver even more value because when when i go in like one of my guiding lights is when i go into a launch for my course i wanna make my free stuff. The the second best launch training in the world so the best launch world in my humble opinion is my coaching program and and i wanna make the free the free launch that i do before the free masterclasses i do before that to be the second best launch train in the world. I think we did that last year. Last year. We had like fourteen hours of content plus a bunch of extra video content with a bunch of case studies plus. This facebook group or my coaches are in their answering during questions. I'm in there answering questions in the facebook group plus downloads. It was an epic experience so much so that people were actually offering us so people wanted to buy that free trade and they wanted us to package up those videos and their complete experience and sell it to them. People were offering his five hundred your dollars for the free training so off the charts value and so that is what i wanna do. I just wanna create valley that i mean at every launch should be alive launch. No it doesn't it just means for for this specific instance for me launching this course for me with my certain set of skills. It works really really well to do alive so this year. We're going to do it again and i'm superstar. Last year was the first time and i know we'll make the second time so much better because we had that experience and we've had a year to plan it out so

"roddick" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast

"He looks up at me says larry. I just played the best set. I've ever played from the back court. I said yeah what's that telling you rocket scientists. What do you do the cia. That's all i said he served and volleyed the next two sets one three three and won the tournament so he was smart enough to make an adjustment okay but but you know if you look if you look at these guys going on the court and because i mean i think it's i think it's really really bad for the game. They think you're taking a major part of the game away from figuring things out while you're playing and that's just maybe i'm old school. Maybe then i'm old school but i think it's not entertainment. He's an athlete figure it out. Get on the bus and then in the practice sessions okay and when you play sets at the time to stop play which i still do juniors. What do you think in here. Why would you keep making that same play. When you're oh and seventeen doing it and you keep doing it so that's where you have to make headway than the practice sessions not while it's going going on in the heat of the battle so that's just my opinion david on that on that subject. That's fair enough fair. My question is here larry and and it is obviously you've coached. Now against federal you mentioned the dow you've coached against jackovitch. They are now within two grand slams of ovation the federal twenty eighteen sixteen yes. Who do you regard as the greatest. Where do you think they will finish in terms of grand slam in total one other thing. I want to jump back a little bit. <hes> roddick beat djokovic five times in row when i was with him before <hes> <hes> joke of it's one on his run so andy had a very very good record against djokovic defaulted a few times in that he just you know every time it got down to where he would like like get into a dog fight 'cause andy wants to bring it to a dogfight mckay and and so he had a very very good <hes> record against joker <hes> until it kind of blew apart <hes> you actually when he lost to him in the quarterfinals of u._s. u._s. Open then heating five times in a row after that there was there was there was something kind of clicked with andy in do very well with joker but i'm gonna make a prediction right now. Jokers gonna have the most slams with endgame. If you're asking me who's gonna be the one. I think rafa can still a win on the clay. I think he can win. <hes> that tournament a couple more times believe it or not but i think he's going to struggle when it gets best to five on a hard surface and on the grass <hes> roger <hes> you know he's you know he's still so he's still kicking in and and playing at the top three level so there's no reason why he can't win one or two more as well but jokers a lot younger. What is job thirty two yeah i mean it must be pretty extraordinary fee you having seen and coached against judge and seen andy roddick outlasted asked him and grind him and yet round. He's to see what he's become. I mean yeah he's in the thing they hold on joker back. If anything is between his ears i mean i'm not getting i think he's he seems to hold him back. Is maybe that thing that you have that belief factor or board or or you know. I mean there's no. I'm just gonna run this guy into the ground and i'm not what we saw. He sometimes press the panic button when there's no need to be present the panic button when he's got eighteen slam. How many slam sixteen sixteen okay got sixteen to eighteen and twenty. Is that how it goes at twenty to twenty yeah so i mean so and he's so much younger than these guys if he if he doesn't let his mind get in the way and that's how we took that hi it's for a year and a half otherwise he would. He took like vacation okay now. He's back but he's still let me tell you when you have that ability..

"Retirement. If someone really really tweaked my interest i i could definitely do and <hes> you mentioned you could imagine yourself perhaps coaching on the w._t._o. Or you also taught us how in that match against federer four and a half five hours how powerless you feel if you work for you wouldn't necessarily ready be powerless because you can come on court and do on court coaching. What is your view of coaching as three questions. You have to throw that one. Yes the little caveat a big fan of it. I'm not a big fan of it. I just watch for the first time i almost fell out my chair watching the san jose a <hes> <hes> women's w tay event. I don't watch <hes> well. I do watch tennis a lot without any sound sound. I can't watch the sound because it's all about selling. They're not telling me what i what's going on. I i'm watching it and telling me something totally opposite so i don't really really listened to commentating <hes> so i do watch a lot of tennis so they had the kid come out on the court and it was it was an absolute lewd disaster okay and that is not what what tennis is all about. I felt like i was in the girls twelfth. Okay i coach girls that are thirteen eighteen twelve and fourteen and if if that if that they acted like that i would. I say okay time to go home. Get your head on straight and then come back when you really you want to be a competitor okay so i don't think coaching that part of the element of the game of tennis is figuring something out when you're in the heat heat of the moment okay and that takes experience that takes a lotta time. I don't need my mom or dad or coach coming out there and telling me exactly what i just experienced. I you're just putting gasoline on the fire. They say it's great entertainment. I think is garbage and i don't think it's part of the i think it would be like having a chess game and then having your coach yo. That's a wrong move. What are you moving that night for. Don't know move the pawn would do the night. Wait a second. Let me figure it out. That's that's an integral part of the game at the moment when i'm playing so that i can have sort of relaxed mind figure things out makin eakin adjustment. This game is all about making adjustments if you keep doing the same thing and getting a bad result. What's that telling you. Why don't you do something different. Okay and i'll tell you one quick story story about that. Andy roddick playing ball in the semi finals of miami when he beat birds in the finals.

They put a lot into the preparation of things but like you said yes it could be difficult with with with the press as well as marcelo as well as johnny mack. Even though he is mr media now <hes> he was no angel <hes> by any means and and <hes> so you know tennis is very selfish and you get to where you're so focused in on you know what you have to get done to to to be in contention to win major championships <hes> everybody else's like you know second third fourth row in the theater so to speak back you know they have no time for them. It's almost like it's a lot of work for them because they're so focused on having to do the work too and it takes a lot of energy to do that david so the great ones that's what they do <hes> usually <hes> but in a i i mean i think you can kinda you know put aside in in handle your duties because the game does give you an awful lot yeah and actually i have to say all three of those e even marcello when he joined the champions tour briefly.

"Notre the Brazilian cosmetics company, that owns the body shop recently agreed to by Avon products in an all stock deal that values the US group more than two billion dollars Vanessa holder talks to Andrew Japan about the man behind the tour and his plans for the company. Andras you interviewed keenly, L, Nietzsche's, billionaire chairman, after the format precision, did he ten you why he decided to acquire? Here's a they began seriously to consider it with the decision to acquire the body shop in two thousand seventeen from loyal. Last. Gene was gonna key in days percent, Lamerica, dune. Novem. And in this clip, he told me one day he realized that the company was president his company was president ten percent of the world's market, but it was another ninety percent. And as a long-stablished company with a good reputation, links to the rainforest Tura, who they well-placed to expand worldwide what the details of the on acquisition and most of the benefits for each side, which we know it was a two billion dollars. All stock deal to buy Evan and Tudor will learn about seventy percent of the combined group while the remainder would be owned by Avon shareholders. And in the deal has been in the works for few months, but in a to expects that would yield more than ten billion dollars in annual growth for the combined group and this mainly, thanks to access to more than two hundred million clients, worldwide Avon, pioneered, the direct selling modeling cosmetics embodied by its doorstep Avon lady sellers. But it has lost market share at the rise of social media marketing, how does this compare to new? Chirs business model. And one of the main differences is not is very focused on the environment in the sense what you were saying about the latest sellers. They're quite similar. I mean to also use direct sales they call them consultants not sellers. But they say now that after the deal together, they will have six point three million of then where would Mr. Neo formed a close relationship with body. Shop's, founder, Neath Roddick was an environmental campaigner. What kind of character is he and what did they have in common but his quite awful? And he c in Brazil, they friendly phases capitalism match like an eater audibles in the UK. He wants told me he grew on vanita Roddick, because both were looking to build a new capitalism were companies help to build a society. So in the light of that, what's the company's relationship with the Amazon day. And what a mystery house ecological credentials. Well, the relationship is quite strong. The comp. Resources some of its room materials from the Amazon seeds plants fruits, whose oil and sense can then be extracted for beauty products. They are has been an environmentalist for quite a while. And he was even the running mate to environmentalist candidate. Marina Silva in the two thousand ten presidential thing deserve. Always throw. Now keep it as advocate. Go. See year produce sound vessel. He told me the company was more committed now than ever to help save causing JAMA's and in view of the growing threat, and it is facing under the presidency of jailable scenario to what extent does not terrorists still use Amazon purchase like Arlen sense. Knits, beauty products. It's about twenty percent of the products. Use Amazon was ingredients at the moment. Why is the Amazon? Particularly important for him, personally his father was from the Missourians state of. But I when I saw him, he told me that actually he developed his environmentalist credential in this passion for the environment later in life. But seeing how many wonders that resume have specially when he came to the environment as you mentioned misleading has also been involved in Brazilian politics. Does he have real influence? And could he play a role in persuading, the both narrow government cherish its forests rather than cutting them down? Well, there was something very hard to do, especially because he doesn't want to get involved in party politics ever again. He told me he said, he's very concerned about the threats posed to the rainforest by the current administration. And so he's raising awareness through business in the civil society me, he's a board member of the Brazilian found for biodiversity the worldwide are funded in Brazil, and he also founded something called least tour you which focus on promoting the. Green economy as colon Avon isn't known for its eco friendly products. What's the chance that this will be an attempt to spread this ecological nature of the neutral brands? I mean, there could be a spillover effect problem is, I mean now the four companies have as that they bought from this trillions in two thousand thirteen the voter shop and Tony seventeen and now wave and although Avon will be the bigger brand is probably going to get something from both mature and the body shop in its, let's say DNA sometime in the medium-term said, both companies even an insurer big operations in Brazil how's that game to work what we have to think that the tour group now they own full brands between those, you pretty much have all the segments because as is quite high end the voters shows like let's say wants to down below that. And so there's no Tudor. Plus, Tuesday's let's say they have they ABMC covered bridge in the first three brands and now with Avon they will cover the. See entity so pretty much. We'll have the whole vertical chain, no, no, Brazil. But what are they go and Avon's faced lot of challenges? Do you think Notre will be able to turn that around? I mean they manage to more or less do so with the body shop. I mean it was quite a bumpy road with even is much bigger companies, manage their really focused on expanding into Asian markets with all the brands, especially with mature neighbors. So they mentioned specifically they were looking at Indonesia, and India. So those are very big markets. They had a good chance of and

We start to you start to get familiar with the business relationship and comfortable in it. And in a way, sort of unconsciously, we, you know, we gravitate there, you know, we don't necessarily need to be there because to shift to going into Roddick sexual contact requires a shift in energy, you know, if you lay home watching TV, and then you say I need to go to the gym. You know, it requires a major shift of energy to get about off the couch and out the door the gym kinda similar, you know, it's like if we spend all this time. In territory of the business relationship or the plan relationship. We just naturally wanna stay there, and we resist going into okay, let's be romantic but the spring sexuality back in and that's where couples get in trouble over time. And like there's more and more resistance to initiating for many couples not like once they cost threshold into there in the sexual experience. They have good a lot of couples have really good sex life. But the initiating becomes the issue. Like who's going to say, I wanna make love to who's going to say that that was a really miss your body, you know, vulnerable thing day, and we sort of gravitate toward the other ways that we relate because it's all -able. Do you have any tips for those couples who want to have maybe want to initiate it more?

Tesla investor says SEC asked it about 'funding secured' tweet

"Elaine furnace up to speed on what's been going on at tesla and with Elon Musk the summer, yes. So if you remember Elon Musk sent out his tweets, this infamous funding secured tweet suggesting that he was considering taking his company private, and he didn't seem to have discussed the precise wording of that tweet with his bold or actually with anybody. He said he was in one of his 'cause driving on the way to you and imports at the time sued this created a huge drama and the SEC is still scrutinising. What went on. We at the f. t. will completely fascinated by it. How would it work? Who who was this funding has been secured from what nothing's going on it, ten dot. The funding wasn't completely one hundred percent secured and so ill, musk and tesla. And has this board have decided that it's better for the company stay public. What's happened since then is that rather than sort of quieting down and get on with the running of the come. And getting the model threes out. You know, musk has spent a lot of his time and energy in tweeting increasingly on krizner Roddick topics. He's come back to this issue of the tie cave Daiva insulting him. Then he'll sort of suddenly took about the colors for the 'cause he went on a Polk cost where he was videoed smoking a joint. This is off to there was some speculation about whether he had been in some way and he breaks it or intoxicated when he sent out this funding secured tweet, all of this adds up to a loss of uncertainty for investors in tesla. They have always sort of taken it for granted that Elon Musk as a larger than life charissa. He has a big ego. He warrants that big ego by setting huge ambitions and actually meeting them. He runs it also companies. He's doing lots of things that people thought went possible. And for the most part, stock prices sent have gone with him in the last couple of months that has turned around. So, but one of those crucial pieces to the tesla story, particularly before early August, the search for profitability and the fact that if I've got this correct has la- hasn't actually made an annual profit since it's been in operation. And so the company has just in order to try to get closer to some of these production targets, particularly for the model three, the just been hemorrhaging cash and that is of particular interest to bond investors will. That's right. So on invest is can mostly about getting their money back. And so Tessa issued a bond last year and it was okay, but the price is actually went down fairly quickly afterwards. That usually means that confidence in the company has gone down and the willingness of other investors to pay up to you, take the bundle of your hands has evaporated. That's largely what's been happening since and it's it's sort of acceleration the last few months. The question about whether that means that tesla will have some trouble raising money and bull markets. In the near future, the amount you would have to pay. I think that the yield is around eight percent now it would be extremely expensive to to borrow via the bull market, but then there's also the question of whether it actually needs to test yourself says it doesn't need to have any cash raised immediately. It could possibly do an x rays instead you right that it is burning through its cash and it's not profitable, but it insists that it has enough cash cushion to go through rations, at least in the Nigam. And then on the equity side of things. All of this, I'll say volatility, if you will be at on social media, Beit chief executive, Elon Musk doing what he does on a podcast, it's head a bit of an effect on the stock itself.
