Film Review: A teenage political experiment in ‘Boys State’
"Future candidate for elected office. Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. Will Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alums. A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas Boys state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. Like politics itself, be action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is Ben, the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Venice. Politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith.

Coins and Cash: Shortages, Hoardings, and Threats
"Walking money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works how to invest it, and how to live without worrying about it. I'm your host David Stein today's episode three, Zero Eight. It's titled Cash Coins. shortages. Forty and threats. Weeks ago, my daughter and I were at a bakery buying a couple of loaves of bread. We didn't have the exact change and they didn't have the coins to make chain. So they rounded down, we got a small discount. This week I was going through the McDonald's drive through, and there was a sign that said due to treasury shortage of coins, use credit or debit cards. Round up to the nearest dollar, donate the different to Ronald McDonald house charities or use exact change on cash transactions. There is a coin shortage in the US right now. Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell told Congress last month. What happened is that with the partial closure of the economy, the flow of coins through the economy, it has gotten all. It's kind of stopped. We've been aware of it. We're working with the meant to increase supply while working with the reserve banks to get this apply to where it needs to be. The Agency of the US Treasury responsible for minting coins is the US. Meant it was established in seventeen ninety two by Congress when it passed the coinage Jack and it chose Philadelphia as the site of the I meant. Now, the US mint operates production facilities in Philadelphia, San, Francisco Denver, and West Point. Every two years, Congress requires US Treasury to give a report on the US mint its budget and its cost to produce its coins. In twenty twenty, the US meant projected that it would produce fourteen billion circulating coins. Including eight and a half billion pennies. One point, three, billion Nichols two point, four, billion times. One Point, eight, billion quarters. Now. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the US mint cut back production of circulating coins in March and April. Year to date through July, they had produced eight point, two, billion coins. They said, they were back up to full capacity by mid. June anticipate producing one point six, five, billion coins per month. That would equate eighteen point, one, billion coins. But here's the thing about circulating coins in the US and other countries. The meant only contributes a relatively small percentage of the new circulating coins each year twenty, nineteen, it was seventeen percent. New. Coins. Going into the supply chain? The remainder came from third party coin processors are recyclers as individuals by things they get back and there are machines where you can put your spare change and it will sort it and this recirculating process. Make sure there is a sufficient supply of coins that has broken down. A couple of weeks ago, meant issued a bulletin, which said, we ask that the American. Public start spending their coins, depositing them or exchanging them for currency at financial institutions or taking them to a coin reduction kiosk.

How AI is Being Applied to the Stock Market
"Hello and welcome to the Today podcast I'm your House Kathleen Mulch. I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. So today we're going to spend our. podcast talking about our use case series where we look at the adoption, I in various different industries and today, we're GonNa take a look at the stock market and the training on. Amazing. Other things like the stock market commodities and futures bonds and Blah, Blah Blah. So we talk about stark record. We're talking about the trading floor in general, but basically the stock market and it is the dream. It is the long dream of anybody WHO's in the financial trading industry to find the magical algorithm magical model that can predict the future of the market because if you can do that you basically when everything in life. Right because. If I can tell you the price of Amazon or apple stock or oil, or whatever tomorrow, I can lock in my buy low sell high sell high by. Then you went and you know what? There are very smart PhD mathematicians out there right now, who are working on machine learning models to predict the markets, right? So we should talk about. I think ever since there's been a market, there's been someone trying to figure it out in one way or another. Just. Technology helps but still hasn't cracked it. So like Ron said, we wanted to spend some time today talking about a and how it's impacting the overall stock market trading floor and that whole area recently adoption of AI in financial trading has seen an uptick and more people are starting to look into this wealth managers are using ai to help serve their clients better. Freighters are using AI and also Also, augmented intelligence tools to gain insights and flight market advantages. You know anything that they can get. They really try any slight gain, is worth it to them, and also many people are starting to see some real value from using ai just in general. So we wanted to spend some time to dig deeper into this and talk about how ai is being applied in various ways. So part of getting. Getting an advantage in the stock market, of course, was called Informational advantage. If you have to know something before other people know things. Then you have an advantage just goes all the way back to you. Even Barron Rothschild in London stock markets, how he used the supposedly passenger pigeons ticket information from the battlefields. You know that was like supposedly like one of those big innovations and it kind of carries. Carries through to the high frequency trading. We're like you can engage in micro. Senate? Like not even Microsoft, by Pico Senate seconds of advantage over someone else because you have the man, you could place that trade just before the other people place the trade. Then you have an advantage, right? So having information advantage is a real thing, but you know nobody really knows the future especially machines. So really. So what you can use, you could try to just build better models. You could try to figure out, could try to fill the basically figure out a better cause and effect like when you see something happening in one place, right? What does your model tell you about what will happen somewhere else or maybe something in the same market like when I see, let's see there's oil prices are going up does your Mama. Mama predict something with some high rate of predictability about what will happen in other market, and so this idea of modeling model changes for Stock Market for finance for risk levels, the is really able to really analyze things just a much higher level. It's basically just doing things that skill we talk about that with the idea of hyper personalization is one of the patterns just in general patterns and anomalies and predictive analytics. Systems can read all the news, they can look at all the social media. Posts, you know they could check every stock, it check derivatives on stock options that could check all those things. So companies that are really using a I are using it first and foremost to just be a massive intelligence gathering tool and synthesize all that information together, and basically try to use that to inform and influence their models and use those models to basically help do things at a much faster speed, and of course, is about speed right? The speed is incredibly valuable and so someone getting something just slightly faster getting that insight. Maybe you just haven't inside that nobody else has which is great in. You can act on that and hope nobody else notices, but a lot of time. But the truth of the matter is, is that you never alone there's too many people looking at too many things. So it's really about speed right and there are many many companies that are really building these ai tools to look at the complex patterns in the market and analyze those pens so that that's one big way is hoping right now.

From World War Two until the end of the seventies. When the economy grew the middle class standard of living rose with it. You can see him almost move in tandem all levels of society moved up together but then we started to get what they call shareholder capitalism maximum return to shareholders. Wages tended to get frozen. They got stagnant. The middle class of living deteriorated wealth got concentrated. The top one percents the top point went percents top point zero, zero, one percent, and then you had a bunch that happened in the economy partly because of shareholder capitalism, we can talk about that. But also because of the way the tax system was changed huge tax cuts. Under Ronald Reagan under George Bush on Donald Trump for the wealthy added about five trillion dollars five trillion dollars to the wealth of the people at the top end added to the insecurity of the middle class people not knowing whether or not. They could afford their retirement, send their kids to college of for their homes, make it from month to month, and at the same time that was happening a lot of that money was spilling into the political system. So you had the increase. Influence of mega donors, corporate money, and billionaire money particularly since the Citizens United Decision in January twenty ten by the Supreme Court which has given just a free pass to unlimited amounts of money and you've seen the amount of money skyrocket wing go into that. and. That's really affected the political system and the other thing is the party differences have hardened.

This particular launch was widely publicized because for the first time in history, a civilian a teacher named Christa McAuliffe. Traveling into space. The plan was to have McCullough communicate to students from space according to the New York. Times nearly half America's school. Children aged nine to thirteen. Watch the event live in their classrooms. But tragically short seventy three seconds into flight. The world was stunned when the Challenger burst into flames killing all seven crew members on board. President, Ronald Reagan canceled his scheduled state of the Union address that evening and instead addressed the nation's grief. A young speechwriter, a friend and a hero of mine Peggy Noonan was tasked with drafting the president's remarks on this solemn occasion. It was a heavy burden as she later recalled quote i. kind of figured. The entire nation had just seen an auto accident. Newnan draft a speech that was aimed as she put it quote at those who are eight years old. Those who are eighteen and those who were eighty. It was nothing less than one of the greatest speeches in presidential history, and it earned Ronald Reagan his now famous moniker the great, communicator. With that let's listen to Ronald. Reagan's January Twentieth Nineteen eighty-six speech, following the space shuttle Challenger disaster. Ladies and Gentlemen I plan to speak to you tonight to report on the State of the Union. The events of earlier today of led me to change those plans. Today is a day from morning and remembering. Nancy and I are paying to the core, but the tragedy of the shuttle challenge. We know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the ground. But we've never lost an astronaut in flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. and. Perhaps we've forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle. But they. The challenger seven were aware of the dangers. Overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We Mourn Seven Heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi. Judith Resnik Ronald. McNair. Ellison Onisuka. Gregory, Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe We mourn their loss as a nation together. The families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel a loss. We're thinking about you so very much. Your loved ones where daring and brave. They had that special grace at special spirit that says give me a challenge and I'll meet it with joy. They had a hunger to explore the universe discoveries truths. They wished to serve, and they did. They served off us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us. For Twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that. We've grown used to the idea of space. And perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. We're still pioneers. They, the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I wanted to say something to the school, children of America, who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle takeoff? I know it's hard to understand sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance and expanding man's horizons. Future doesn't belong to the faint hearted. Belongs to the brave. The challenger crew was pulling us into the future. And we'll continue to follow the. I've always had great faith in and respect for our space program. And, what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets and cover things out. We do it all up front and in Public That's the way freedom isn't. We wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our question space. There would be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews, and yes more volunteers more civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I wonder why that. I wish I could talk to every man and woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission. And tell them. Your dedication and professionalism have moved and impressed us for decades. and. We know of your anguish. We share it. Is a coincidence today on this day three hundred ninety years ago, the great explorer Sir Francis Drake. died aboard ship off the coast of Adam. In his lifetime, the great frontiers where the oceans and historian later said he lived by the sea, died on it and was buried in it. Or today! We can say of the Challenger crew. Their dedication was like drake's complete. The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us for the manner in which they live their lives. We will never forget them. Nor the last time we saw. This morning. As they prepared for their journey and waved goodbye. And slipped the surly bonds over. The touch the face of God. Thank!.

She can see based on Applied at Intil upsell cross sell. Your best. Shopowners is probably an obvious one. But if it's not no I think I think that's a really good point right is You should kind of experiment a little bit and see what works what doesn't work but You know as we kind of approach the end of this episode. I think you've taken us on a really. This is a very structured way to do things right. Set Up Google analytics right way You know I'll have kind of detailed notes for this episode because there's a lot of kind of step by steps but look at the Average order value look at the behavior the attribution views and the cost position And then experiments in various places for upsells cross sells communicating. Better with the customer. Exactly on a nice you as you gain experience you become a lot more confident in in building up this relationship with the customer because with the older frequency you can also see that a lot of repeat businesses made after two weeks or maybe it's one month so then using some sort of email marketing tool whether it's You know free to use the mail chimp or Founds Clovio or active campaign Applied Science into your into the customer journey and then the exactly the same it to begin with the day off to it. Some sort of think-i email two weeks later after that and swollen so you repeat frequency buying cycle of your customer increases making the cost to acquire a lot less. That's just to touch on that again. There are You know I haven't used mail chimp in in a long time but the the email marketing tools. Ideally US like Convert Kit or Jilts do allow for things like that right so in convert kit. When somebody makes a purchase in commerce they get tagged with that purchase and then I could set up a sequence to email them that day. Thank you for your purchase. The next day. Hey have you logged into the chorus yet? I think you should really check it out. And then if I know that they're likely to buy an hour of consulting or a follow up course in two or three weeks time. I can tell convert kit. Email them in three weeks and say hey. Hope you're enjoying the course.

Emails is fun Higher Than One hundred percents which means people opened more than once. Would they order when it's going to arrive? Let me check it again in. Only sort of questions people really anxious when when is going to arrive Beautiful Item for the service. That's a moment. That's a key bone didn't have email in the battle of so much like maybe forgot something in Yuba product a product. In when you look at the frequency Citizen in several shop you'll see that The the frequency after defense purchase on day one day two is significantly higher than they full five and six because the the shop the experiences Fresno might maybe they sold something ready to purchase it so hit the client with an email a reminder to say hey how about this item v Now? You've looked at it all you know Gift given additional discount help to make the villages. Yeah right and and that goes along with Another psychological phenomenon right that somebody makes a purchase. A second purchase doesn't seem so bad right especially if the second purchases less than that I purchase so you know I really good example When we bought our house in May I spent like a thousand dollars on new office equipment and stuff like that and I thought well I just shelled out so much money on the house I might as well invest a little extra to make my office. Exactly what I wanted to be right. Absolutely classic. Nothing is a little easier to get people to spend two times five dollars done won't time a Dulles. Yeah right and that's a good point too right because You know you're reducing sticker shock a little so your Taking a bit. I mean I'm GonNa say taking advantage here but even though that has a negative connotation you're able to add more value to your customers journey as you're saying Because you are offering them more value based on the stuff that they've purchased you are offering them a discount that they may not have otherwise had and your reducing the sticker shock which may be helps them. See the value a little bit more. Absolutely as and this is not about Craig selling into making as much money as possible. This is about the relationship if you imagine entering shop you you know you look around you. Browsed the aisles. Thank from the checkout Of Different things that remind to actually that is chocolate bar or a gift card for somebody else and even as you leave the show with your trolley fully loaded with With with shopping groceries there is the while in case the national luxury by the counter right by the end of the by exit. And how many people's Fully loaded release just by that one nothing. But it's a magazine newspaper locally tickets so shops stewards and seeing that an and trying to do in your own online environments Makes a lot more sense. Yeah absolutely and like you said this is not about quick selling. This isn't like a a get rich quick thing because as you said earlier it's going to take time and money for the acquisition right so you're spending time and money to make them.

"Focus on taking care of and marketing to their current customers. Because those people have already bought into what you're selling absolutely but I'm saying also I completely agree that because you have this much higher value customers that you've managed to retain you can have full spend a little bit more requiring the customer in the first place because you know you'll get a much higher value undefended long-term. Yeah right that makes sense. It gives you a sure. Yeah Yeah you're saying it might cost twenty dollars to acquire that customer off the first purchase but over time as they buy more stuff from you. That cost proposition goes down. And so that initial number doesn't look so bad over time. So it's it's a it's really a balancing act right but I tell you it really. All you need to know is the average value your frequency annual customer shopping behavior. And if he if you confident with that and US based on your historical data that you can find through Google analytics over free you can. You can be a lot more confident in authoritarian customer looking after them so next next partner wants to talk to you about is the actual customer journey in how stocks is very theoretical by keeping it open. Can you imagine that in Iran Scenario? Where the run shop or whether you sell services online or do some sort of you create a of McDonald's available through any en any goals for example so they The acquisition people come eventually decides whether that's the first time third fulltime day eventually at a product or service to a boss guilty in order to to check out your fast Really good moment to to increase the average order value already because we we settled average is one hundred dollars but if he can increase the by twenty percent that acquisition still Twenty dollars I on average but if increased by twenty percent the actual physician already juices so ways of being the most obvious wounds is of course up selling If you like this product you like that product but what I found through the years with ECOMMERCE is that's never utilized enough because move cameras. Especially you'll have your product said recommended products. Very few cleanser work with letting correctly and that's IT and from John Q. Will be reminded of any other products whether it's in the show. But he can find are not funded so looking at the whole journey of all the different moments before. They've made that richest to upgrade the the the older. When you're on the basket but SA- Papa because you've Disorder this item in your basket. Maybe WANNA upgrade on a by another one if you twenty percent of all most people who like his also bowl. That railing didn't even see that in the in the shopping counselor grades. I'll have to ask whether that would not even then. There are more opportunities because once you've checked to paid for it he come onto a thank. You page again. It's a great to have moments where you think you can suggest something else whether you buy Doc Foods. I need you. Dan Sell Placements for example Likelihood and this happens over time you can apply to signs will you're on that eka figure out wilted SORTA Additional product can be when people purchase product a Integrate Donncha So so yes. So right here. We've got a few touch points right once you once. You get the customer in the door. And they are ready to buy something. They put something in the car Up Sales and cross sales are something as you said they are. Quote UNQUOTE BUILT INTO WOO. Commerce but not necessarily used appropriately But what I really. What I really liked is after payment on the thank you page. There is another opportunity right and Again if we look at Amazon as a classic example as soon as you pay it's thank you for your order then below that. It's hey here's other stuff that people bought after they bought the thing. You just got right and these things she can. You don't employers for either you. Can you can do yourself because you predict showed coats. And won't you figure out where your thank you pages on you? He utilized by adding a code in indicates be filed for example and it could be a feedback on it could be a additional product. I mean a a tough. The shoe shop and they've added a an additional shoe Police off the people paid out now take was about twenty five percent and they did that hardly sold any.

It and boom save precious time and key strokes. One of my favorite snippets is for my address so instead of typing out my full address and risking typos. I simply type dollar sign. A. D. D. R. and text expenditure does the rest billing in my full adjusts for me. I also have snippets for my street my city and my zip code but that's not all text expanded does with its advance snippets. You can create fill ins pop fields and more you can even use Java script or apple skipped another one of my favorite and most used snippets is when I type P P. T. That will take whatever text I have on my clipboard and convert it to plain text. So I'm no longer biting formatting when I copied from a word document a Google doc or a plane. Html page website. I also use it for common links email messages. Which I can completely customize with fill INS and dropdown menus and even date calculations. I'm currently writing a book. And Tex expenditure has been instrumental with that. Texas bender is available on Mac. Os Windows Chrome iphone and ipad. So pretty much anywhere you do computer.

"Otherwise. I can also share some screen. She'll links because it's well worth while to go back into your Google analytics dashboard find these key. Bits of data. So let me just sort of get started and build this picture data. I mean it's it's I think. If you ask any shop owner they will probably tell you how much turnover they've they've made in the last couple of days week month year. How many customers? They have based that on the customer list. Think much more than that. You probably don't remember all apart from maybe you'll you'll cost and so so the the key data that's I think absolutely crucial fisa. Boldy average old evaluated. Now once you've connected Joe Google analytics To Your web shop you have to have this e-commerce enabled it's it's an extra bit of data that you can get from your analytics dashboard including the Davidge older value but also total revenue economic conversion rate. And so. So if you haven't done that if you go into under conversions and you look at e commerce and it's completely blank I'd say Google and find out how you can I naval that anyway once. You've got an enabled. He'll see the average order value. And that's a really key metric because with that you can multiply condemn around. Maths subs the next. The next bit of information that you need to find out is the oldest frequency so In in order to do that look the audience and behavior the behavior. He doesn't have to separate a segmented of those that have made a purchase. And the longer time spent you can go back on that the better because that means you have more data now all of this is possible just a free to use google analytics no premium Doesn't anything what you find is that most purchases are made on Day. Zero people come in to make a purchase on that set but if he done See the view of frequency Racing you will see that a lot of people will come back very soon after making the first purchase A. I've seen it on on several shops. That's half the bit of a peak on the next day and then again either in one week two weeks three weeks. Four weeks does another increase in repeat purchase at those pods of the the the frequency. Webuye accustomed comes back for a second purchase. Think IS OPERATIVES ABSOLUTE GOLD. Because that's the way based on your historical data looking into the future and seeing when you can target in get ready for an expert. Gotcha so I'M GONNA. I'm GONNA stop you right there for a minute because there's a couple of really good pieces of information there I that you're finding out all this information with the free version of Google analytics right so I'm going to. I'll find a video to link to for you to enable e-commerce data and The the you know you're right. I if I go into my woo calmer shop I can look at like sales and revenue and churn for memberships and stuff like that but the things that you're talking about are things I I haven't really paid attention to which is order frequency. When do they come back after they make that initial purchase and and like you said those are important because you can start to prime them to make the next purchase exactly readies to gloss crystal ball looking into the future you know exactly when a certain percentage of your customers comes back? Yeah which is Great. And I'm sure like there's probably a lot of marketing around that you know. There are some brands that email me every day with the same sale but there are some that will email me like two weeks after my make. I make my first purchase. Hey how did you like that purchase? You might also like this maybe in two weeks time. I'm ready to make another purchase because I love the first one so much exactly. And there's those emails especially by companies than transcendence they have big data sets a machine. Learning that will help to predict these sort of things but most people can't afford several thousand dollars per month in these suites off Marketing machines so you know the these couple little tips. I think Was Go for the small and medium-sized businesses. Now that the next one is Attribution fuse It's it's a quite near a little thing within Google analytics and you'll find it in your top bottom left corner. Nss Mid label attribution when you click on the first time it will ask you to activate it and then it takes you seventy two hours to activate now when you once it's activated and you start experimenting with it you'll see a whole new level of data and again it's the it's it's free to use you. Just have to activate it. So one of the things you can then see conversion paths. It will tell you how what was the first point of contact with your show. What was the second? Was it through email. Marketing was through a direct affiliate. And so on and another one is the conversion past links. It's a how many touch points accustomed needs on average before they foot in buying a product. Most I mean most most. Most people think it's the ball is the one time that gulag stay hit and purchase something. Because that's what Google says the that's has happened. You've had so many clicks if at so many purchases but actually at least thirty forty percent need more than touch points before they make the purchase. Because think about yourself. If you buy a pair of shoes while you go won't show up. You googled it again. You go to another shop compare prices. You might leave at Annette. Somebody's hitting you. Bank reserve abandoned called email. So it's all happening in your own behavior when when you go to different Medico online shopping so understanding your own customers in how they behave with your shop. It's another way of looking into the future. And targeting that looked at a show somebody actually I think is one percent but needed about fifty touch points before they made the purchase. O- how they will. They will come back eventually. You just have to be that. Keep reminding them because once they've made that I purchase customer potentially for life. Yeah and that's a really good point right. I mean again looking at my own experience. Yeah I assume I'm not so much anymore but I used to assume you know I I would just tweet online courses available check it out and I expect people to. Click on that tweet and then by the course. But that's not the case right. They need to. They need to understand the problem solving. They need to be ready to purchase. Maybe they're not ready to purchase again. Looking at one of my favorite brands untuckit They make fantastic down shirts for men of a certain build and and you know I saw their ad during a baseball game And I saw their store and then I checked out their site and I think it was the fourth time I was I was ready to buy a couple of shirts from them so I think that those little pieces of Information. You're giving us about customer. Behavior is so so important. Because it's not just if you build it. They will come. It's you have to prime them and convince them and then make them customer. You're then remind them about how much they like your stuff exactly. It's it's you building this. This live most drop or a nets around your customer with also different price points. But when you when you create a g think he just throwing money down? The pit specially glasses one of those things. He can just spend money money money on our never see any result but when a compare it with a I click interaction and lastly interaction. You'll see a huge difference because they may be have come through your A first time didn't make a non after a few entrenches they came back to your Now it's the direct customer with that. I mean those who believe website that type it in and make a purchase. You don't think that Damani THE PURCHASE. The conversion is just down to that lost. Click the direct traffic but actually it was the Google APPs that made up I sail in Google attribution view Is Really Amazing. You should really check it out because she can see all the different paths in how many conversions have come through. I mean I'm literally looking at all now for customer adults quickly run through so this is joining from start to finish on all run through really quickly so we have referral. Organic search referral to direct. Visits another organic direct referral direct organic direct email three more Derek. And then they made the purchase so we have organically have referral could be an affiliate. I have email marketing and Some each of those touch points do take a little bit of a show of fuel investment in acquiring the customer now. We talked a little bit about the sort of the different scenarios of glaring customer and everybody will have a value put against an acquisition whether it's a marketing budget Budget all even going to Speak at the conference. There's money allocated in promoting you business bringing people in so his scenario. And you have a one time. Customer value is one hundred dollars an investment investment to acquire. This customer is twenty percents of twenty dollars. Now if you build on repeat business on your average frequency which you find out in Bits of data that. I should've shed with you. How you can find out. And the frequency of focus is on average two and a half so that's average old evaluate one hundred.

That's not the reason I'm having Ronald on today. We are I'm excited to kind of learn more about this conversation about this topic. I should say data to help a business owners but also freelances to make more sense of an economist journey Pick out a couple of really good little tapes that they can apply to their own business or help customers fantastic. Yeah so why? Don't we get into it with a little bit of background information about you so we can talk about kind of who you are? And what you do show so. I'm fairly new to the family. It's much a family. The define the research is Italian. Is the company started in Catania in Sicily? Half the company is now based in Tenerife and the remaining fifty percent is still in the in Catania so I am based in the. Uk joined about four months ago before I joined them. I rent my escalade micro web agency because it's my crime sense. It was me and my wife and a few freelances to call upon looked after many will come. Stolz in particular part of that was also getting traffic to stole so I qualified as a qualified with the advance. Google analytics apply that for many many years. wet boss. Oil Search console is late to Johnston. Also Google partner for Google outwards. Google's now so all those different skills together combined I think I can paints a good picture will many of the listeners. Yeah that's fantastic. So you said did you say four months yes. I'm especially since January however I did some Subway for them in the post dispatch attending camps. Where we met okay. I was like I could've sworn you working in the booth before that. Not a happy man. So that's fantastic. Well first of all shoutout to Sicily. I impart Sicilian. I am one hundred percent of Italian descent and I know that's a rarity these days And I'm very proud to be able to say that so but you're based in the UK You ran a small agency. Also Google partner and so yes focuses on Commerce extensions right so they are The number one independent will commerce extension very much so yesterday Let me go back a little bit to the history of how it started to so none. The popularity of history was the CEO. He would for an IT company In two thousand eight. He came up with the idea to use some of the the trends in web development that were being seen in the US in UK with a little bit further ahead and Brian blocks about loss of blocks at technical a furring dedicated plan he executed in soon after that he released his first themes which were designed by a by his wife. Who's a amazing a U. X. Designer The teams went down really. Well were being sold on theme forest and in years literally sold millions of them along time. The number one theme salary with those themes. And you probably remember that they they. They came loaded with lots of plug. Ins and functionality. If you have a Nolan months solution that was spreading to go yet if you have a restaurant he or his restaurant. Beloved him loaded but over time. These functionalities separated from the theme. So these plug INS I will bolster agents search Filter they became styling products. Stay on so. That's why the joining of Luke must plug INS started full. Forgive the stands for your inspiration teams But it's a lot less team themes on a lot more plug ins we have over one hundred now Catholic wow mosts Uses make of the club membership. So you have still the old plug-ins On six thirty websites but the the the direct line in all of this is it's all about creating this customer journey from start to finish so plug. Ins includes The being displaying products. In a nice way on your website to different checkout methods payment methods also lot of admit tools a pdf in frustration as adults and everything in between those Yeah absolutely And so you mentioned the customer journey again so I love to you Get into this. I am an online educator and I always talk about the learner's journey one year putting together a course you WanNa make sure that they have a problem. You're solving it. Through whatever actions they need to take solve and that they have a very clear path it sounds like the customers journey Is a little a little bit similar to that but maybe we can talk about what exactly you mean by that. I I think customer journey you can have different views on that and I think a developer looks at it in a very different way to a a US designer to a web designer on taking more of the the the stand as a data analyst and look at key points now. I appreciate that what I'm about to sort of Charon tell us you need to know a little bit about Google analytics if not I think this is the the key point to come back to the podcast assigning.

Also the builder of baseball's Greatest Empire Ed Barrow to spend the next nine years without wonderful little fellow Miller Huggins then to spend the next nine years with that outstanding leader that smart student of psychology the best manager in baseball today. Joe McCarthy sure I'm lucky when the New York giants eighteen you would give your right arm to beat in vice versa. Send you a gift.

Let's dive into the first of three speeches today. This one's by Ronald Reagan address to nation on the Challenger. Ladies and gentlemen. I do plan to speak to you tonight to report on the state of the Union but the events of earlier today have led me to change those plans. Today is a day for morning and remembering Nancy and I are pain to the core by the tragedy of the shuttle Challenger we know we share this pain with all the people of our country. This is truly a national loss. Nineteen years ago almost to the day. We lost three astronauts in a terrible accident on the grounds. But we've never lost an astronaut and flight. We've never had a tragedy like this. And perhaps we forgotten the courage. It took for the crew of the shuttle but they the Challenger seven were aware of the dangers but overcame them and did their jobs brilliantly. We more seven heroes Michael Smith. Dick's Gobi Judith. Resnik Ronald McNair. Ellison owner Zucca Gregory Jarvis and Christa McAuliffe. We mourn their loss as a nation together for the families of the seven. We cannot bear as you do the full impact of this tragedy. But we feel the loss and we're thinking about you so very much your loved ones where daring and brave and they had that special grace that special spirit says. GimMe a challenge. In a media with joy they had a hunger to explore the universe and discover its truths they wished to serve in the dead. They served all of us. We've grown used to wonders in this century. It's hard to dazzle us but for twenty five years the United States space program has been doing just that we've grown used to the idea of space and perhaps we forget that we've only just begun. Were still pioneers. They the members of the Challenger crew were pioneers. And I want to say something to the school children of America who were watching the live coverage of the shuttle's takeoff. I know it is hard to understand but sometimes painful things like this happen. It's all part of the process of exploration and discovery. It's all part of taking a chance in expanding man's horizons. The future doesn't belong to the faint hearted it belongs to the brave the challenger crew was pulling us into the future and we'll continue to follow them. I've always had great faith and respect for our space program in what happened today does nothing to diminish it. We don't hide our space program. We don't keep secrets to cover things up we do it all upfront and public vast. The way freedom is and we wouldn't change it for a minute. We'll continue our questions space. That will be more shuttle flights and more shuttle crews in. Yes more volunteers. More civilians more teachers in space. Nothing ends here. Our hopes and our journeys continue. I want to add that. I wish I could talk to every man woman who works for NASA or who worked on this mission and tell them your dedication and professionalism has moved and impressed us for decades and we know of your anguish. We share it. There's a coincidence today on this day. Three hundred ninety years ago. The Great Explorer Sir Francis. Drake died aboard ship off the coast of Panama in his lifetime. The great frontiers were oceans in a historian later said he lived by the sea died on it and was buried in it. While today we can say of the Challenger crew their dedication was like drake's complete the crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they live their lives and we will never forget them nor the last time we saw them this morning as a prepared for the journey and waved goodbye and slipped the surly bonds of earth to touch the face of God.

Joseph advocated for peace and cooperation. But fellow tribesmen dissented in killed four white men knowing swift. Backlash was coming. Joseph and his people began to make their way to Canada hoping to find amnesty there. The tribe traveled seventeen hundred miles fighting the pursuing. Us Army along the way in dire conditions and after a five day battle chief. Joseph surrendered to General Nelson a miles on October. Fifth Eighteen. Seventy seven and the bear paw mountains of Montana territory. A mere forty miles from the Canadian border. The chief knew he was the last of a dying breed in the moment of surrender was heartbreaking. Here's the speech. Tell General Howard. I know his heart what he told me. Before I have in my heart I am. Tired of fighting are chiefs are killed looking. Glass is dead. Who will shoot is dead. The old men are all dead. It is the young men who say yes or no. He who lead on the young man is dead.

Perhaps freezing to death. I want to have time to look for my children to see how many of them I can find. Maybe I shall find them among the dead. Hear me my chiefs I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands. I will fight no more forever. Who Fire Nation? Our third and final speech today is by Lou Gehrig farewell to baseball address.

"And we're back all right guy you're saying goods and services Orissa's now I do. I do it in my mind. I know it's pretty great. I'll I'll grow inside of you slowly like a fungus Robert. I love funguses. That's where we get all of our best mushrooms. Yep I'm out the mushroom of the heart so via yes we've had a little history lesson and now it's time to talk about a terrible person motherfucker. This whole thing is a history lesson. Obey back John Ronald Brown and I'm GONNA continually use his middle name. 'CAUSE calling him John Brown will very much mix them up with the guy that we don't want mixed up in the story The the hero John Brown so John Ronald Brown was born on July fourteenth. Nineteen twenty two I. Oh I don't know where and I haven't been able to find much if any meaningful tales about his childhood he claims in interviews to have been the son of a Mormon physician in Utah which is probably where he comes from. John was apparently something of a child genius and he found academic so easy that he graduated high school at Age Sixteen. He was drafted into the army at the start of World War. Two I. It's like he would lie about graduating at sixteen but I feel like you would lie about being from Utah. One has what do you gain from that. No no one has ever pretended to be saying anyway. Go on. It's like lying about coming from Oklahoma City. Trust okay the so he gets drafted into the army at the start of World War Two And as a new soldier who was required to take the general classification test which is the precursor to the modern ASS Fab test which is like doc are are what jobs. Are you smart enough to do in the army Now decades later in interviews with journalists. John Ronald Brown would claim to have scored higher on this test than any of the other. Three hundred thousand people who had taken it previously in Utah now. This guy's a liar so he might be lying but I also don't know that you would lie about being the smartest man in Utah Again I mean if you're the kind of man will lied about being from Utah. You would probably lie about being the smartest man in Utah. I I think he's probably it's just a pile allies. Yeah maybe sixteen hundred on your sat's but only when you're not in your hometown. I like Ah. I wouldn't be surprised if three hundred thousand people was like three hundred thousand times. The number of people who could read fluently in Utah in the nineteen forties so a lot of Utah Shade being thrown in this area sleep beautiful it is beautiful but not humans no nobody goes to Utah for the humans. Humans now part to get away from them. Yeah exactly so. Yeah whatever the truth about how intelligent he was vis-a-vis the rest of Utah Brown score was high enough that the army sent him to medical school. He received his bachelor's degree from the University of Utah in nineteen forty seven and his medical degree three months later because apparently that was a lot easier in the fuck you just be a and put in an extra three months. That's like a summer. I don't think it was hard it to be a doctor back. Then man they they had just locked down that you shouldn't shoot people full arsenic so yeah actually. Born earlier I get in medical people up. Oh man you'd be a doctor. I'd be a kernel we could. We have a podcast called the doctor. Colonel Our yeah and it's it will still be a lot of murder but but in real life though because there's also no contact lenses back then and I'm very blind so the wild as hell. The doctor I'm GonNa be wild the driving as well. 'cause none of us are wearing seatbelts. Just a bunch of blind people crashing into each big steal cars. That's awesome. Yeah it does it. Do what Kinda rule cool now the Shitty John Brown as I like to call him move to Los Angeles to WHO's internship at Harbor General. He finished his internship at the Queen of Angels Hospital in Los Angeles us and at this point in his budding medical career. There seems to have been no sign that John was headed for anything but a productive career as a man of medicine. John finished his time in the military and went onto work as a general practitioner in California Alaska Hawaii and the Marshall Islands. Now it's possible that all this moving around which is John Taking advantage of the fact that his his skills as a doctor gave him the opportunity to see the world given what comes next. It's even more possible that he fucked up in a number of horrifying as and had to repeatedly switch states. The anytime you've got a doctor in the forties lending cars you know to another parish. God it would be so I would absolutely have been surgery and people stand any kind of surgery you want to leave. I want to stay in. Mississippi cut off arm and the next day. It'll be awesome so Yeah we don't know precisely what he did in his early career or if he was terrible From an early point we'll have one example of an early fuck up when he botched a thyroid active and almost lost a patient And we do know that John shouldn't have attempted hinted to perform that surgery because he was not a surgeon and was not qualified to perform surgery so early on in his career. There is at least one case of him performing surgery without being trained to do so. Like a spunk. You know what I mean. Oh yeah surgeries really. It's like driving any percent spunk. I think yeah you just gotTa get in there and do it put your foot on the gas closure is and start cutting that way meet. You know that's the way it works so After after botching the surgery John decided that he should get training in the field if he was going to start cutting into people And he spent two years in Newark City hospital as a resident and also attended a plastic surgery program in New York's Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Unfortunately he proved to be terrible at all of this. He failed repeatedly so he goes to surgery every school but he fails constantly the exam. That would actually certify him to perform plastic surgery and then he later brags about this to journalists quote. I've passed the written part of the exam without cracking a book But he says that he failed his oral S- because he is domineering father traumatized him and so he couldn't handle confrontation with authority authority figures. He would say that. My brain turns into cottage cheese whenever he had to do the practical exam. which did also snob bragging about not practicing for being a doctor yet? Nobody's impressment make you feel good. I want you racked is yeah I don't I don't pick my doctors who I think has the best gut instincts some. It could have wing it. You can be my doctor. That's I want the guy. Yeah that's not how we choose them. Yeah I want someone who's like looks exhausted from the sheer number of books that they've read WanNa come in their office and be like Damn I could never read all of these. That's how I WANNA feel. Yeah Yup so in total John. Ronald Brown failed the general surgery oral examination twice and the plastic surgery oral examination three times. He's not great now. This should have stop him from ever performing surgery in hospital but it didn't largely because no one really checked up on him since he completed specialty. Residencies he was still considered board eligible. All in honestly. It seems like no one was really paying. Close attention So John got to work surgery. all sorts of people And outside of work he had a somewhat tumultuous modulus life. His first wife left him for one of his friends while he was in the army. The second wife died of Breast Cancer John moved back from the East Coast to California where he started a medical surgery surgery. Practice in San Francisco now. We don't know how John I learned about Christine Jorgensen transition or how he felt about it but it's plausible plausible to assume his establishment in San Francisco which was then one of the very few places in America were transpeople had any visibility Would keep him in on the fact that there was suddenly a major demand hand in this segment of the population for surgeons and particularly surgeons. Who might not checked or surgeons who might not You know one on and you'd have a doctor's note saying that you You were prepared for the surgery surgeons who might just take the cash and do whatever you ask when you go ahead but implants and they put cement in your but yes exactly just in a hotel in Miami yeah so the first vagina. That's that was very specific. I mean that's the case Vice documentary about people's like lip injections that would route their faces off so that sounded assuming it's the same kind of thing. Yeah exactly split out shed into things that you shouldn't be because you're not licensed person and people just trying to save money out there and do under the table it's amazing the desperation Shen for something like thicker lips that would allow lead you to dislike. Let somebody in a hotel room inject you with nonsense events like also so many of the stories are like Oh and then I was like is there. Is there no anesthesia. And they're like Nah. I'm like well that's the really big sign for when you're going to get surgery that you should be an anesthesia not for lip injections but you know what I'm saying when people are like. Yeah I I anti Bot injections and they're just like well you're GonNa be wake during this in like what. Yes so Yeah ooh do in the nineteen sixties the late sixties Doctor started performing the first vagina. Plastics and again. We don't exactly know win. Brown got into this line of work. he probably started providing minor cosmetic surgery to transitioning individuals. Like facial surgery and stuff like that But he quickly grew interested. Sit In doing more extensive work And by February of Nineteen seventy-three John Ronald Brown was established enough in the Trans Community that he gave a presentation at the second. Interdisciplinary Symposium on Gender Dysphoric Syndrome sponsored by Stanford Brown's presentation focused on what he called his miniaturization technique. In which you would turn turn a patient's penis into a clitoris thus guaranteeing them the ability to continue to experience sexual climax So that's like the thing he starts like. He's probably for years working in the community but he has this idea to basically trim pinas down to a clitoris while doing a giant plastic. It's point I mean it's a good selling point. Yeah it makes sense right if someone was like Oh and you can come. I would be like I don't care what you said before that Seoul. Yeah so by the fall of that year Brown had transitioned his own career almost entirely towards that sort of work very few other doctors willing to do it and most charged prices says that we're far out of the reach of many Trans Piano. That's what I'm saying. Access is just not like Yup. It's financial end. Whatever and yeah? Yeah well no you're right. You're you're you're right on the money. Because John Brown basically establishes himself as the budget surgeon for gender transition which is not A..

"ronald you" Discussed on Ideas
"Changed one of the most obvious these things of course it's just the sheer number of us. We've gone from just over six billion to just under eight billion in those fifteen years which is it's like adding another. China forty more candidates to the world and what makes that worse from the point of view of keeping natural systems going is that the level of consumption per person has risen which is pretty much double the impact of that increase. We've also seen I think a very disturbing trend for governments to think in very short term cycles and to become come captured by powerful industries such as the oil industry or the weapons industry and to make bad short term sometimes mm. Stephen criminally aggressive decisions the Iraq war being one case basically to keep all these industries going on the people that work in them. Keep them. I'm employed and we already know that. We can't go on burning oil. We already know in a world with nearly eight billion people starting wars very bad idea and yet the quality of discourse and the quality of leader that we're getting in most countries seems to be unequalled for the tasks asks and the challenges ahead especially at the moment. One thing that has changed is that we know more. We know better how terribly I believe. The earth has been ravaged by are progress but I'm just wondering what what you think this particular progress trump has meant for people for example for their social the quality the neoliberal takeover issue like that is the return of a right wing small government philosophy hard capitalist philosophy that was promoted by Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan around the late seventies early eighties and which has been in the driver's seat in most places ever since at that time so for at least three decades for decades that has sort of meant the throwing away of all all the lessons of the first half of the twentieth century and those lessons were that you know you can't have large numbers of unemployed poor our people without crime and social unrest and also extreme political movements whether of right or left whether it's Bolshevism or whether it's awesome and you know Europe and the rest of the world learned that lesson through two world wars and after the second world the war they adopted some of the ideas of FDR's new deal and John Maynard Keynes the the great economists to influence the new deal and all the developed countries made welfare states most of them had free universal healthcare the US Really Been Yoni the exception to that most of them had social safety nets and also jobs was seen not just in terms of efficiency but in terms of the social oh good you know some of the work that was done worse. Perhaps designed to keep people employed but that was a good thing the idea of ruthless efficiency and the complete lack of caring for what happens when an industry becomes obsolete or becomes less efficient in purely economic terms doesn't don't take into account the the human cost so all of these lessons led to these this sort of what is now seen by some people as a golden age from the fifties through to the end of the seventies where there was real economic progress but there was also high levels of taxation and redistribution and central planning and of course the the growing power of international institutions and all of that was working and we have we have thrown it away away for a promise which really had nothing new in it. It was somehow we were sold the idea that if we went back to ruthless robber Raba Baron late Victorian capitalism that it would make everyone rich is not working. It hasn't worked in the costume on the earth and on the earth life systems that supports everything has been enormous. Let's go back to nineteen seventy s fifty years ago and we have good statistics and since one thousand nine hundred seventy the human population has doubled and the populations of wildlife have more than half in fact they've dwindle by sixty percent can't so that's a very short time for a change of that magnitude to take place the other things happened. as as I mentioned in connection connection with the change in economic and political thinking is enormous growth of inequality we now have a level of inequality not that's probably never been seen before. I think it's greater than between the Faroe and an Egyptian peasant or between Louis the fourteenth and a French peasants. You know we have a world now.

Our faith is dominated by the consumer culture. Christians have been demonstrating in front of the Haifa museum of the arts demanding that it removed the artwork. In response.

Heartbreak relational health is more important to our health than we might imagine. Think of those you consider to be friends studies show that only thirty five percent to fifty three percent feel the same way about you.

But also to physical health research indicates that those with stronger social relationships are fifty percent more likely to live longer, a new report further documents the link between relational health and physical health. It shows that international students moving to an unfamiliar sociocultural context can experience significant exiled, that's not news. But this is such anxiety is correlated to sustain inflammation in their bodies, which can lead to cardiovascular disease in poor overall health, our greatest desire is to be fully known and fully loved. But our culture teaches us that the two. Our adversaries the more. You know, me the less. You will love me the more. You love me, the less, you know, me years ago. John Powell wrote a masterful book, why am I afraid to tell you who I AM The Answer in short because I'm afraid you won't love me. If I do there's only one person who knows full e and loves us fully because God is omnipotent. He looks on the heart in knows everything. And because God is love he loves you and me with an everlasting in steadfast love. No one else is on Nisshin. No one else is essential nature is love. That's why no one else can know us fully and love us fully. Here's why this fact matters as Craig Denison notes until you're longing to be fully known and fully loved is satisfied in the wealth of God's affection for you. He will never stop seeking elsewhere until you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are cared for thought about liked in wanted by your creator. You'll never stop trying to satisfy those needs and others. And we know how that turns out what does God's omniscient unconditional love. For us mean in practice. Here's what it doesn't mean. It doesn't mean that we should see ourselves as more valuable simply because God knows fully and loves us. Fully the Lord knows things about us. Others do not. But this is not why loves us more than they do. He loves us because he is love is love is an expression of his nature, not are merit. As a result. We need never fear that he will learn something about us that will cause him to love us less. Here's what God's unconditional love. Does mean we should seek to love others and ourselves as he loves us. Jesus was clear as recorded in John thirteen thirty four a new commandment. I give to you that you love one another just as I have loved you. You also are to love one another just as could be translated in the same way. Our Lord wants us to love each other as unconditionally as he loves us. And to love ourselves in the same way. How the first fruit of the spirit is love when the Holy Spirit controls an empowers us. He manifests the love of God in and through us. It's not that we love ourselves and others more fully, we experienced in share his love imagine, the impact of our influence on our culture, if every Christian loved every person he or she knows with the love of Christ years after the holocaust survivor. Corrie ten boom met one of the former guards at her concentration camp. She could not find it in her heart to forgive him. So she asked God, give me your forgiveness. Then as I took the guards hand, the most incredible thing happened from my shoulder along my arm through my hand current seemed to pass for me to him while into my heart spring love for the stranger that almost overwhelming me that day. Corrie ten boom learned vital fact, it is not on our forgiveness anymore than on our goodness that the world healing hinges. But on his when he tells us to love our enemies, he gives along with the command the love itself for whom do you need his love today?
