Tom Haviland Discusses the Shocking Film 'Die Suddenly'
"Havilland is my guest, Tom welcome. Hi, Eric. Thanks for having me on the show to talk about this very important topic. Yes, and by the way, I'll try not to gag. I just want to be upfront. I will try. No, look, this is when I saw the video, the die suddenly video. That's what brought you. You're not in this business. He retired air force major electrical engineer. But what got your attention? And you said somebody needs to speak out and draw attention to this, which is what you're doing and you're doing it on this program. But tell us about that process for you when you said this is not getting coverage. This needs to get covered. This is gigantic information. Sure will. The week of Thanksgiving of last year, the diet suddenly film came out. It came out of the Stu Peter's network. And I started to watch the movie and it was kind of crazy when it first started. They had Bigfoot in there and the moon landing. I said, what's going on here? But I stuck with it and I watched the film and I'm glad that I did, Eric, because at the 13 minute and 15 second point, an amazing statement is made. And embalmer from the state of Indiana, mister Wallace hooker, was recently speaking at an Ohio embalmers association conference in October 26th of last year. And during that conference, he was presenting to a room of about 100 embalmers. And he showed him photos of these white fibers clots so he's been pulling out of his corpses for the last year and a half. And he asked the room of embalmers, are you seeing the same clots? And he said that almost the entire room of 100 embalmers raised their hands yes, they were. Okay, let me just say parenthetically. This is disgusting. But there's no way around it. Ladies and gentlemen, what we're talking about is happening, not getting covered, and so yes, I remember watching this film die suddenly, my friend Barbara, who lives in The Woodlands in Texas, sent it to me. And I started watching it. And the film begins, it's a little bit all over the place, talking about, but then suddenly it comes in, lands the plane on what you just said,

Another episode, it's either the end of June or early July when you're listening to this, so a happy 4th of July and advance. I actually probably wanted to throw a quick shout out to something we did, you know, we recently promoted podcast episode featuring rob Moore of the sentinels and we did an awesome giveaway. You may have seen it on our newsletter on our socials. I just wanted to say to our regular listeners, keep an eye out. We're going to be running a lot more of those as we go forward.

And the giveaways are fun, right? Listen to business of eSports and win free stuff. I mean, it's kind of a no brainer if you ask me. I'm sorry if my voice is going or I'm still not in studio, obviously, but I've also been doing a whole circuit of conferences and things here. And so if my voice is going, if it's not my usual booming kind of tone, I apologize. I'm doing my best. And for everyone, I will just tease.

Jimmy, by the way, I was speaking at this conference on crypto and gaming, you know, this is sort of what everyone wants to talk about now, right metaverse and crypto gaming and crypto and all these intersections. And it was funny because I had a bunch there's a bunch of people who were at the conference who have listened to the podcast. And they kind of cornered me and they're like, they wanted to know why I'm so down on mobile gaming. And people I think misunderstand, they were defending you and kind of attacking me on the mobile gaming thing. And I'm like, I don't hate mobile gamers, and I know I'm not personally a mobile gamer. I love it, the capitalist in me loves it. I think it's a great gateway drug. I just want to make clear. I'm not anti mobile gaming. I just, I'm not a mobile gamer. You know, I just want to say thank you to all the fans that defended me. Supported me. And into the streets. But there's so much love for the show in person. Like I said, it just makes it completely justifies everything we do when people come up to me and say they listen to the show. And they disagree with me. I love it, right? That kind of love it even more when people listen and have a different opinion. That makes it even more fun. So I don't want to waste any more time. We got an amazing, amazing guest this week. I mean, it gets better every week. We always have the best of the best. The top people in the industry is everyone knows. And this week we have none other than Stu grubs. Stu is the CEO and cofounder of lightstream, very, very cool company doing very interesting things in the gaming and streaming space. Still welcome to the business of eSports podcast. Thanks for having me. It's through for our listeners who maybe don't know much about you or don't know about white stream. Would love a little bit of the story, the stew story, the background, why you got into gaming, what light stream is all about, what you guys are doing there, focused on there. Would love a little bit of that background in that story. Yeah, I mean, I probably have a very similar story to anybody else who got into gaming. So I'm not going to repeat kind of the formative years. But born in 1985, when all the good stuff was starting to come out and at home energy. It was like didn't get so went through all the normal steps. So zero to 18 just falling in love with it. Going to college, I guess you could say now, successfully dropped out of a college computer engineering degree. Because I had an opportunity to work in gaming for an illustrious $300 a month for a company called got frag dot com, which back in the day covered 15 fortress two counter strike, all of that, which was where my heart was. And so I was a big part of that team for a long time, a lot of great people came out of there, a lot of wonderful people I know in the industry and eSports came out of the Godfrey days. That was bought by MLG. So as part of major league gaming for a while, I got an opportunity to go work at World Series of video games and stuff they were doing was something called game right dot com at the time, which is at one point, but I then quit, I quit all of gaming. I moved to Colorado to ski and be an EMD. I wanted something different for a while. I left for about a year and a half, two years. And then I came back as a PC a resident PC enthusiast for a liquid cooling company called ace attack that you probably haven't heard of them, but you've probably heard of the nzxt cracking. At the core of every single great water cooler, right? Just nice attack design. Yeah. I worked with Kevin for instance, who had just started origin PC way when he was building like 20 PCs a month. To design a liquid cooler for them and so on. So I met a lot of people in the industry through that job because I worked with all the different system integrators and whatnot. And that was where I was living in California. And then I got an opportunity from an old friend in the eSports world to run global marketing for SteelSeries. And so I was there for a few years to do something like that. Their strategy changed when they got they took on investors outside investment, and I was like, I'm more of your grassroots marketing kind of guy. We had done kind of one of the industry's longest running eSports sponsorship, SteelSeries was competitive gaming gear and they were shifting away to be more of a brand that they are today, which I think is a great brand. It just wasn't within my skill set. I was very focused on kind of the competitive aspect. And I quit there in 6 months later, I was founding light stream. So that's the abbreviated version of this story, but yeah. That's true. Maybe you can talk a little bit about live stream and what you guys are doing there. Sure. I mean, back in 2014, the only most of the people broadcasting on the Internet were gamers. There were the occasional big nerd like me that would stream a SpaceX launch or NASA launch or something like that, but the best on new stream. For the vast majority of the content was gaming related. And so we were looking at the problem of how do we keep how do we use the cloud to offset some of the resources it takes to stream how do we make it easier and more approachable than something like OBS and so on. So our current live stream studio is really built to kind of mimic that workflow, set up your scenes, switch between them, we can take in feeds from your Xbox, PlayStation, whatever, we beat that to the cloud, you can access that in any web browser, your whole setup saved up there. All the benefits of modern cloud based web apps, but applied to something as complex as live video. Today, for more of a video technology company, we still offer studio. We offer something called brain maker, which handles kind of alerts and overlays. And the basics of that, but primarily is actually an audience analytics tool for both creators and brands..

"Well, you got to get into stews world to learn about that and he will absolutely blow your mind. But to get into Stu's world and learn more and more about memberships, how to get started, what it looks like. Here are other stories that will inspire you, students got something pretty cool. So today is exciting because it's actually the day that you're hosting a the first of a series of live workshops. So can you tell us about these workshops? What are they? Who are they for, and how can my listeners join? Well, once a year, we host a free workshop where we go deep and we talk about all of these ideas. So if you're sitting there thinking, okay, you know, I could potentially see what a membership might look like, but I don't know if my market would be a good fit. Calm and join us because we're going to walk you through a way to assess whether your market would be a good fit for a membership. And you'll know exactly whether it's a good fit. Or you might be thinking, yeah, but I don't know what to provide inside of my membership. How do I structure the content? Come and join us. We're going to walk you through something that we talked about earlier. The success path and how to set that up. Or you might be thinking like, well, how would I market the membership and grow it? We're going to be talking about all of that too. And it's all free. Here's the kicker though. It is live. And when I say it's live, I'm legit, it's live.

"How is the business? She's like, well, Stu, I honestly haven't been doing much with the membership. She's like, because I did the founding member launch three years ago and over 80% of my members have stayed and I haven't had a need to do any additional launches because I've been booked the entire time. Come on. It's amazing, right? So again, she took a one time service and turned it into a membership. Service based memberships is number two. Number three is the one that you and I are most familiar with. This is the one that, you know, the vast majority of people listening will absolutely be able to apply. And that is acknowledge based business. Membership, knowledge based membership. And this is where we take the things that we already know, love and do in our expertise, and we help people either solve an ongoing problem or we help them master a set of skills, or we make things more convenient for them. But there are so many examples of this. I got to give a shout out to our beloved friend Anna, the Julio. We love you, Hannah, and it is our marketing baby. She always says she learned so much, so we color our marketing babies. But it was amazing. She was a teacher for more than 20 plus years. And she was really good at what she teaches in the classroom, helping kids read and write. And so she ultimately took what she was doing in the class and began providing other teachers those lesson plans, making their lives easier, creating a blueprint for them to help their kids read easier and faster. Well, before she knew it, that membership exploded with thousands of members. So she took what she already knew, all the things that she was already doing, and she just packaged it into a membership. And there are so many examples with this Amy and markets like photography, calligraphy, fitness, and finance and music and art and dog training heck, there's holiday charge who's got a membership with hundreds and hundreds of members teaching how to make balloon animals for crying out loud. Like bottom line is that when you know something, the amazing part about the Internet is that we have the ability to reach thousands and thousands of people who also want to learn how to do the same things. And so it's just a matter of taking what you know, breaking it down and beginning to teach it inside of a membership. So we go product based service based knowledge base. Last one's real simple. Community.

"The second question that I started asking was, how could I help and reach more people without it requiring more of my time? That led to a conversation with a mentor of mine who brought up the suggestion of a membership. And I said, well, what is that? And he said, well, think of it this way. Instead of you helping people one on one, you're helping people one to many. And it gives you the ability to be able to scale the way you help, and it gives you the ability to be able to scale the business without it requiring more of your time. That was that sold me. And at that point, I began down the membership path and began exploring it and here we are today. Here we are today. I mean, your story is so similar to why I got into digital courses to move away from the one to one type of business that I had. Knowing I will always hit that ceiling no matter what because there's one of me and I can only go so far. So I love that that's why you got into memberships and boy have you gotten into memberships. So the reason I have momentum, which is a multi-million dollar membership is because stew encouraged me for years to do it. And then we, because in true Amy fashion, I've got to make it a big deal about everything. We traveled to Canada. And I was like, tell me everything you know. You don't need to travel to Canada to get everything to know, but that's what I did. And it changed our business dramatically. So I have so much respect and love for stew for what he's taught me and what he's taught so many others. So Stu, I want to talk about different types of memberships because I've seen memberships for like $2 and I've seen memberships for like thousands of dollars a month. It really runs the gamut. So with that, how does someone know what kind of membership that they should create? I would always start with the type of business that you have right now. Because I want you to think of four different types of memberships. First one would be like a product based membership. So back in the day, Dollar Shave Club was a membership that really made this product based membership properly. The old way of selling razors was to sell them one off, you have to go into the grocery store many times they were behind like a lock and key cabinet, like you had to ask somebody. I want to shave my face this week. Could I get some razors, please? You know, like it was just ridiculous what you sat. So Dollar Shave Club came along and they said, well, hey, listen, why don't we just make your life easy? You're gonna need these on the regular basis. We'll just send them to you to your house. And you just pass on a monthly basis. And people are like, yes, please..

And I looked at the screenplay that she had written, and I was really charmed by it. I thought it was funny. And it was poignant. And it wasn't too sanitized or saccharin. It wasn't pre show of the choir. It was a story about real people who were pretty, you know, venal in many respects, as we all are. And it showed you a path that this man took a true path, and where he got to and where he ended. And it's kind of a triumphant kind of, you know, pretty inspiring story. And I liked it. I dug

Wet Notes 8-30-21
"This is wet notes here on scuba shack radio for monday august thirtieth two thousand and twenty one. Well we have certainly had our fill of extreme weather lately just last week here. In connecticut we face the challenges of tropical storm on re just barely below hurricane strength and at the last minute it shifted east and we avoided the brunt of the wind rhode island wasn't as fortunate and now we have item a cat for hurricane hit louisiana. Extreme weather is now the norm. The news keeps getting worse. Recently there was a study published by nicholas bars from the potsdam institute for climate impact research and that was that the gulfstream could be varying towards irreversible collapse. Now the gulf stream is part of the atlantic meridional overturning circulation or a. m. Oc this circulation takes warm salty. Water from the tropics moves in north and then takes the cold water south. The study finds that the circulation is at its weakest in one thousand years. So what happens if the gulfstream collapses that will dictate extreme cold for parts of north america and europe. Is the collapse imminent well. That's not an easy question. Answer it could be decades away but as we have seen things are happening a lot faster when it comes to climate change not only will the disruption of the gulfstream resort in colder north american temperatures. It is predicted that there will be a rise in sea level disruption of the monsoon patterns and impacts on the amazon rainforest. An aunt arctic ice sheets. The study concluded that is that this is all a result of human endorse induced climate. Change in may of this year. I talked about a project out on lake. Tahoe called cleanup lake. That project had an ambitious goal of cleaning over seventy two miles of the mountain lake. So i thought i would give it a quick update on how the work is progressing. Now these numbers come from the cleanup delake website. Cleanup delete dot org as earlier this month. Team of divers has removed an amazing eight thousand. One hundred and twenty two pounds of trash were three hundred and three thousand six hundred eighty four kilograms and covered about twenty two miles or thirty four kilometers of coastline. There update indicated that they have completed seventy four dives over twenty seven days of diving. The diver's consumed two hundred and eighty six cylinders of air. Today there have been eighty one volunteers who have delivered two thousand six hundred and eleven volunteer hours. Now i'm not sure if they're on pace to meet their objectives but that's not always the measure success. The amount of continuing effort is what really counts. Keep up the good work guys. The annual boston sea rovers clinic for this year is just one month away. The two thousand twenty clinic happened just a couple of weeks. Before the corona corona virus lockdowns took effect. We really didn't know how serious things were then. Now as we continue to emerge from the pandemic the show may just have the distinction of being the last face to face. Scuba show in the world before the pandemic and the first face-to-face scuba show in the world post pandemic monty. And i were at the last meeting. And everything's proceeding for the october. First and second show the show will follow state and local mandates and as the days pass by. We are all hoping that the show will go off his plan. This year shows moved from the traditional march date to october as a result of the pandemic that you'd be a great time to enjoy some early fall weather in new england. It'd be great to get together and diving is certainly a social sport. Do you miss dive training magazine. I sure do. I think i've re reread all the back issues. We have a good shop at least three times. So what's happening with the publication. Well i reached out to catherine castle garcia the editor to find out the latest catherine informed me that they hope to be publishing again in the fourth quarter of two thousand and twenty one. Now that's some good news. The fourth quarter is not that far away. And i'm certainly looking forward to dive training magazine hitting the streets and finally here on wet notes. I wanted to give you an update on the situation with dutch springs. If you remember last time. I reported that the property owned by stu jill school had been sold to trammell crow texas developer. Who's planning to build a large warehouse facility on the property. The initial word was that dutch would shut down after the season while a lot has happened in the last couple of weeks i there was a petition that garnered over three thousand supporters to keep the place open and as we know petitions can only go so far then there was support from patty professional association of diving instructors patty due to white paper outlining the economic benefits dutch brings provides as a diving venue. Patty estimates that because dutch exists. It helps to generate three point. Four billion annual retail sales in the northeast they tag the economic benefit to bethlehem at thirty four point five million as for tax revenue. The paper indicates that about ninety. Eight point nine million is generated for state and local taxes and northeast and about two point one million for bethlehem in addition to patty support. The lehigh valley planning commission has called the proposal of disaster for the quality of life in the lehigh valley while it seems that there a great deal of opposition to maybe very little that can be done to stop the effort. One positive. I that i did see. Was that trammell. Crow was indiscretions with local officials to offload the fifty off lou to fifty acre quarry for community use. Just how would you get to acquire if they build the warehouses. I don't know while the saga is far from over. I would expect that we won't see. Dutch brings open for the twenty twenty two dive season but his al michaels once said. Do you believe in miracles. Well that's it for this edition of wet notes.

And we don't know how if there were any you know people americans as well in that group That were just just not service people but just trying to get through the line It's incredible that this happened and w- one of the things as we've been going through this there wasn't a big appetite for this For the this presence anymore in afghanistan By the us Population really both sides of the argument. Come republicans and democrats mostly wanted to get out of there. Wasn't it's not about that. It's about competence And we kind of started talking about this as things broke down a little bit and we were talking about it. It's this thing like oh biden screwed up true right This is a a chaotic situation. It was not planned. Well why did they do it in this order. Why would they let go of the airbase before they get everyone out. All these questions came up and it was all being talked about as if it were dislike thing in the past that he messed up and what we were actually talking about at that. Time was the best case. Scenario the best case scenario was that there was just chaos and we got everybody out and it was an embarrassing thing for the administration. We are now taking a giant step toward the worst case scenario and we should realize we're may not even be there right now with all of these people dead. There's no way to improve that situation. They're gone so this situation can still get considerably worse. Saigon is a dream from where we are right now which is a terrible terrible thing to say you know. These people are out there trying to do everything they can to get people home We still have. They believe a thousand people at least in the country that are american citizens most of which Want to come home. Though they keep spending an inordinate amount of time explaining why people wouldn't wanna come back. I don't i don't know why but we you know whether we're going to be able to get any of them to the airport or whether this is even gonna continue pass today. I think there's a big question. Yeah lemme eric. Let me since you brought that up. Let me go ahead and play The us ambassador to afghanistan who again this is a very weird talking point that the administration keeps using which is well. I mean at this point. You know if americans are still there. They're just choosing to stay. They want because they just want to stay somewhere where the taliban and also isis want to kill them. Apparently just really enjoy. I don't know terror. I have no idea. Listen to this from the administration. The question has been raised. Y didn't the us get out. Americans and our afghani friends before the taliban were able to take control of kabul. Gref warned about this in a cable. Or you ignored. We put on Repeated warnings every three weeks to american stowing back to i think march or april each one in stronger terms leave now leave immediately Never in my forty years working at Since being working at the state department have. I seen such strong Such strong language use people chose.

CIPA died this week in a hospital in Japan due to complications from Covid 19. He was 82. NPR's Andrew Lim bahng has this appreciation. You know how in the movie pulp fiction Samuel L. Jackson has that big speech that goes and I will strike down upon the with great vengeance and few well writer and director Quentin Tarantino Cryptid from a 1973 Sonny Chiba movie known in the U.

"I thought they needed perimeter defense. You know, they have this. They had this thing about thinking that Caruso was going to be that guy. Caruso was a good defender, but he was in my mind a better team defender than an individual defender. He wasn't a Michael Cooper, who was like that tile that just was all over the place. You know, while we're speaking to Michael Cooper, before we get going here, and you cut me off, I want to say it publicly again that you go down in my book as one of the greatest if not the greatest defensive player to ever play because you played defense on four or 5 different positions. And people that don't play don't know how hard that is, you know, you can lock up one guy, you know, if it's a point guard, yeah, I can get, but now you go over to that big shooting guard or that small forward or back in the day when you played there were guys called power force today. There's no power forwards. Everybody say, come on, senators are playing at 6 AD. There's no real physicality to the game, so they don't try to take advantage of the size differential that they tried to do with you. So and I think if you don't believe me, believe Larry Burton said that you were the toughest kid you were toughest guy he had to go against. Thank you, Steve. That's nice words from you. Just stand on that track for a minute about the best defensive players. Who would you consider a good two? Give me two names of good defensive players in today's game. Wow. Wow. I'm gonna throw one at you and I really like this young man. Draymond green, what do you think of him? Well, yeah, I definitely think draymond is one of those, because that's his forte aside from being a facilitator. His forehead is defending. And he defends again. It doesn't matter. That's why when they're healthy, defensively, they can get it done, because they play a 5 man statement they can switch every position because draymond, you don't have to worry about him switching out on pick and rolls against that small guard to drink one of them out there and guard them. So, yeah, he's one of those that can do that. But there are a lot of two way players out there that I like, you know, be prior to the injury to his knee. This season, again, you've got it Kawhi Leonardo. I thought, was really a defender. I remember quiet San Diego state when he was in college. I thought he's going to be an all defensive team in the NBA for ten consecutive years . Never envisioned that he would develop into the offensive player that he has developed into. So he's one of those good two bird plays, but there are a number of players in the NBA that believe it or not can play some defense. So I'm gonna say it right here to be our last question for you. And I'm putting myself out there now. And again, I think it's gonna be on what coach Vogel do as far as pulling that chemistry and keeping that team together. And again, the biggest point you made if they're healthy, the Lakers are going to win the championship this year. Can I get you on my fan wagon? Way to go out on that limb. I like it when guys go out on that little early. Don't wait until fourth game of the finals and the Lakers are up three to three to one. Exactly. And then say they're going to go out there early..

"You are now considered the voice of the Lakers. How did that make you feel? Well, it makes me feel good that people kind of associate me with chick to begin with. You know, there's still time till today that I'll be walking on the street or something. Somebody will say, hey, chick, I mean, too. I mean, it kind of really gives me a compliment to me that they associate me with. I tell all the people that I've worked with after chick that no disrespect. Just be yourself because you're not going to be able to feel those shoes. There's nobody. There's going to be able to feel those shoes. So let's just go out and have some fun and be ourselves. And that's what we've tried to do. What are some of your go ahead, are you? What are some of your greatest memories calling Laker games? Wow. There's so many great moments in Laker history that, you know, and this is just going into my 35th season with the Lakers. So I've got an overload of things. But, you know, I think success is always something that stands out in your head. But I think when I think about the history of the game and the history of the Lakers, the one thing that always stands out to me is the moment that chick made a comeback..

"The Laker family at hall and today we got Stu Lance. Stu, how are you doing, sir? I'm doing really well. Thank you and you. I am wonderful still wonderful wonderful. You know what, you see, I take our guests through a kind of like a timeline walk back doing the early days, but we're not gonna do that. We're gonna get right to the point with you. Still, what brought you into broadcasting? You know, that's interesting question because I didn't major in journalism at all in college. I should be teaching grade school. I my degree is in elementary education. So when I retired, I looked forward to going into the teaching profession. But a friend of mine said that he thought I might be pretty good at being an analyst for basketball. And I told him he was crazy. But he said, what's the harm in trying? CBS is looking and that's who was doing the NBA games at that time. It was a regional broadcast. Each region had a game on Sunday, so there were 5 games a day back in the old days. And so I auditioned and they selected me. I started working for them for that year and then from there on. I've been doing it. You know, so you had probably one of the best jobs other than being a former player. I mean, you're a great player when you play, but the best jobs of a career after basketball because you got to work with the voice. And when I mean by that, the voice is the voice of the Lakers. One of the best announcers, I remember going back to when I was a young man when we had black and white TV kids now today's can't even imagine black and white, but we had black and white TV and Chick Hearn brought color to the black and white game when you just heard him talk. He was so eloquent about it. So knowledgeable, if there was one more I might say, I hate to say his name because he reminds me that dreaded kings we hated so much Boston Celtics, but Johnny most was another great one, but you had the beautiful task of working with chick current tell us a little bit about check the man. Well, let me tell you, first of all, correct you and you said one of the best chick was the best. I'll take that. Basketball was concerned. Nobody was better than chick hurns. So he was the guy. The chick was the man. When you talked about basketball and just the language that everybody has grown up listening and speaking about basketball, kick started it all. He was just way beyond in the field. You know, so, you know, I remember thinking I loved him so much. One of my favorite things was about chicken. Again, here, we kind of like to talk a little crazy sometimes, but nothing too crazy, but it's some BS, but the one thing I loved about chick after a game when we're on the road. Tick would do such a great job as interviews, but he would always get to the airlines before the players. So if we got in, you know, kicked. We grind down in our own way and chick would have a couple. And after a while, he starts to you fuckers come on and get on this plane so he can get out of here..
"stu" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"I don't know about the governor interest boundary that that cnn management presented to him in may when when they admitted he screwed up. They say what you did was inappropriate. You're on the phone with your brother's aides advising them on what to do and that was inappropriate but they said of course. We're going to talk to your brother. you know. there's nothing more important. He didn't talk about his brother. Wants the trouble started to talk about my brother and that was also a management ruling and ruled that way when his brother was on the show. Pretty much every night During it's like overall i think what was most important is that we cover the story on air just the same we would any other story ultimately. Isn't that what matters all right. So stu you were an expert. On the cuomo's i was just listening to you on. Megan kelly's podcast great episode. People should check it out. I wouldn't know your thoughts about this. Well i mean it's a completely ridiculous idea. First of all he wasn't just talking to his brother literally wrote a speech. The first public commentary by andrew cuomo was written by chris. Cuomo who emailed it to andrew. The reason we know that is. Because chris cuomo's email is in the report about andrew cuomo. We read it in the report. Chris cuomo's name is in. The report is not advising. That's he wrote the speech and you think about how this works. And i mentioned this To make an as well you have a situation where. Cnn is theoretically attempting to cover the news as he pointed out. It's the most important they were covering the news at the same time. Their own anchor is literally writing the speeches that they're covering. That's not okay. Nobody thinks that's okay except cnn. And like in a way. If chris cuomo had the greatest ratings of all time. You kind of understand this right like you know. I don't know if it was like tucker carlson right now. Maybe fox overlook something. He's the biggest biggest Audience by foreign cable news media overlook. Something this happens in sports the best the best player michael jordan nineteen ninety six probably gonna done whatever he wanted and then no one would have said anything. This is chris cuomo. he's like the worst host on television. No one likes him. He's constantly embarrassing the network and for some reason they defend him as if he's got some information on them. It made some sense when his brother was the governor and they had a giant building inside the state and maybe they were trying to avoid a repercussions. But now i really don't get it. I don't know what they're doing. Were you surprised either. View that stephen colbert kind of pushed him that great. No it's it's stephen compares. The one that didn't right to the twelve year old. That's just so we all found so stelter is a caricature of himself. A used to write a column at conservative review before we merged in my. He's a cheerleader. Stelter is immediate cheerleader. He grew up idolizing media figures. All you need to know about. Brian stelter is that he has dan rather on to talk about the truth right. So it's it's a very low bar for brian stelter but last week i was surprised last week. He did like a street. New story on the chris cuomo like he said there's people inside and i was like wait. What this doesn't seem like brian stelter. But then when he's in front of a camera and it's not what he's written more people see him. He seems to go back to defending you know. Cnn and defending come on man. It's brother kids in. It's not an easy spied for. It's not an easy spot for brian. To be ready. Says oh network. Obviously he's being told how to handle this in some way. I'm sure behind the scenes. And you know he probably likes chris. Cuomo he's certainly been a big defender of over the years so maybe he really likes him. It's just like this is. This is not a defendable thing. They drew this line. Were they said okay. Well you can't talk to the governor and his aides at the same time like why the hell would that matter. No one cares if he's talking to his aides he's talking to the guy making the speeches and going after these women publicly. That's the problem and one thing you found in every single report about andrew. Cuomo resigning in in the background behind. Every single one of them from the mainstream news was that chris cuomo was advising his brother and advised him to step down. Why do we know that they were supposed to be only a one on one conversation right. The whole point of this arrangement was he would only talk to his brother. Why does every reporter know about that conversation. They know about it because the cuomo camp was leaking it to all of them so that he would look good that chris would look good. He was the good guy yes he was advising him but he advised them to do the right thing. The whole thing's a sham and now they're just like they've realized they've lost cuomo number one they're trying to protect cuomo number two. It's pathetic while we're talking about people. Everyone loves sarcasm. Gavin newsom alright. So he's in kind of a vulnerable position. They've got ballots hitting the mail this week about the recall. It shows that Voter have voters have support for newsom at forty seven point six percent trailing opposition by just one point two percentage points so the ballot consists of two questions should be recalled who among the candidates should replace him. You think he's getting nervous. I thought that this was just stupid and nothing was going to happen. Problem is special elections as we saw in massachusetts in two thousand ten when scott brown won the people that are mostly motivated are the ones that win special elections right and the people that are mostly motivated or the people that want gavin newsom gone. It doesn't matter afterwards. If you say you won't avenue some gong gavin. Newsom can't be on that second ballot when they talk about it. In what gavin newsom has done. Is he scared. Every single credible democrat out of the race to not be put on that second ballot. So what it looks like is we may see like a conservative firebrand. Larry elder be the governor of new york. And can you imagine if an african american true conservative gets charged with the largest state in the union inch you. Can you imagine just the sea-change that that would be an any. That's why newsom scared more than anything because of this is actually very. i mean. it's a real life soap opera plan out with this election. Okay we've got to go to break or ending on a really good happy notes. You wanna stay with us. When the news cycle is how.

"The the irony of this is. I've had a bit of an awakening over the last few years in particular in waking up to some of the the illusions of success particular understanding that all successes really failure in a way. Yes in the sense that i mean. You're you're a fan of buddhists thinking and buddhist thinkers and so. I think you would understand that. Any sort of chase is an attachment yet Right and so any chase is is claiming any clinging is failure to me so in a weird way. He sort of societal. Based success metrics achieve rang all of these things. And so even though my corner type the my personality is a three in the sense of of being an achiever but at the same time the the striving for a long time made me miserable. yes Yes well when that passion that threes happened. We'll talk about that in a moment takes. Hold the gift that is inside of that becomes a curse and it becomes your undoing and in fact you're in the book it does become your undoing literally. Ask literally like i could. I was going to write down my favorite lines and actually i was going to write down my favorite questions that you ask that. I loved right. Because i'm a four. I love questions. don't answered don't give me black and white grace all day long. You know sort of keeping that space. I wish i could sit with with the same way sitting with the sort of uncertainty. And i mean i. I desire to do that when i become conscious of it. It's great but i am not pre disposed to to simply questioning with out answering right. Add to say like when you said that whole idea of all successes failure and the steps you walk through there. That's like a powerful revelation for three. Right i mean that's amazing. Yeah well he has a great crash in the book. And so we're going to hit that bit because you have kind of the maybe the call the blessed abyss where you have a crash and that true your whole identity into question right yes and it was sort of a classic three crash. We're gonna get to that but the seven. Yeah seven so the unconscious motivation of the seven is a really a need to avoid emotional and psychological pain That's me and then the way.

"So i didn't get graded on it didn't pull down my gpa. But yeah it was big. And i didn't know how grace of god and the grace my professors that i made it through. How how did you time at seminary shape you and shape your relationship with the lord specifically actually a very positive light. I loved academic part of it. I love to exit. Jesus being able to get into the word and understand it for myself. An interpreter for myself and i within its context within its literary genre. I love that sort of thing and For me and because. I took a part time while working fulltime. You had to study there is causing talked about this other. Stu was wonderful job. I was able to do that and for me Seminary was very positive. It's what i had been living for even while. I was a college trying to get there and get the place right. It could be a pastor. What about that is just the maturity of delaying it. A little bit right. Because i'm so convinced. Certainly when i was there i was young and i should have no business being a pastor. Then that's probably a good thing. I didn't end up being one but that It just we need more maturity on the part of our passers right. So i think just taken that time. was probably really really good. Did you that as well. In retrospect in retrospect it was positive of course right. Now i'm not serving unorganized church. And i lost that too. So so my dream kind of fell apart at mrs part of the honesty part with god i mean we live in an era of unfulfilled dreams and even when we want to serve god. We can't always in the way that we dreamt or imagined a god would use us. Yeah and so. There's a lot of big disappointments in this life and we go to god with him and we wrestle we complain and gripe he has everything in a time and for a reason i have seen the hand of god move providence and give me where i need to be when i need to teach me what i need to when i'm there But pastoral work is not something that someone should go into lightly or when they're too young or because they think it's an easy job. I mean people sale of time you only work one hour a day.

What to Do When You Can't Find God
"Several years ago i read a book by a j swoboda called the dusty ones in it. He shares a story about his from high school whose name was stew. Stew met jesus through his friendship with jay and they quickly became zealous. An excited together. They read the bible. They prayed in front of lockers. And stu felt close to god in those days will soon. Aj lost touch after graduation as often happens in about ten years later they reconnected and that was when aj learned that statue no longer called himself a christian because once he went off to college he stopped feeling the presence of now. I'm not here to debate the reality of stews relationship with god or the validity of his conversion or even the role of feelings as they mix with our faith. But what i do wanna talk about. Is this experience. That many friends of jesus either have gone through are going through or will go through and that is the experience of the loss of the felt presence of god. The truth is we won't always feel god's presence. I know some believers who say they've never really felt god's presence. I don't want that to be true but it is true. The good news is this is nothing new. For generations and generations christians have wandered through the wilderness have walked through. The valley of the shadow have navigated life in the midst of difficulty loss and seemingly impossible circumstances. If you are walking through your own wilderness right now.

How many people really encrypt. And you don't people by the kryptonite. Kryptonite hold it.
The Powerful Potential of AI in Agriculture - with Poornima Parameswaran
"So we can hop right in and talk about this kind of core business problem of kind of soil quality and understanding that informs today. Maybe you could talk about the business value there and how and why it's done because i think it's new for a lot of the listeners. Shar dan Today when people typically think about farming and farmers they think about another person farming and think about the crops. Everything that's above ground. Nobody really things or considers the land the soil on which the crops are grown. That's really not in your visual when you think about farming and yet you know. The state of the world is such that if we continue to farm the waiver farming soil and land today remember not just farming proxima farming crops and soil and land. There's only sixty cycles left of cropping left on the land on earth today so that essentially another way of saying it as over two thirds of the land. Today is completely degraded berry degraded to the point where we're not. We're not going to be able to meet our demands for food. Fiber fuel remembers largest. Food is also fiber. So that's really the biggest problem were faced with as a planet it's not just for our startup is for everyone out. That's the biggest problem. How do you cheated. Grove wood fiber and fuel with the resources that we have today while continuing to meet the demands of our growing populations. And that's really where the soil piece comes in. Is you look at everything. That's being done today to farm. There's so much fertilizer that goes into farming rape there are some of the stats out. There are staggering. There's two hundred million tons of fertilizer that are being used today or farming but growing our coroner are even almonds grapes. You know anything that you'd think of this food game from mando is treated with fertilizer at some point and we don't need all that for license plans do need all of that fertilizer back. I'd say over a third to half of that. Fertilizer is not taken up by plants. It's run off into waters so it causes water pollution it causes air degradation goes back to the atmosphere and it causes. Soil degradation right. And so there's this whole concept of overuse that's resulting in seoul declaration. There is also the area where crops have diseases to plans. Have diseases stu and one of the number one tools that armor is really have in their toolkit to fight. Diseases are pesticides. Nobody here about pesticides all the time for farming and typically people think of it in a negative connotation. Oh it's killing bees. It's killing butterfly on bright and it's causing social degradation but farmers really do need it like. It is a key tool joke if diseases if we can help them better understand. What's in their soils. That can place these fertilizers and pesticides in the right acres for the right indications that the right risk mitigation scenarios bats really where data in intelligence content. What is that land telling you. What is that soil telling you before you go into front that crop. That's really where did on intelligence about soil is so critical today and it's so exciting like all. The technologies are sciences. Where technology is today. That's where we are at that next like we are at the frontier where we can bring. All of. this is in this technology today together to be able to unlock the power of soil to be able to provide this intelligence to our farmers so that they can make better decisions. Not tomorrow but today
European Union Pushes for 'Digital Sovereignty'
"Like many other governments. The european union passed a massive coronavirus recovery package setting aside trillions of dollars to get the economy back up and running on the other side of the pandemic but also included in what is extensively a covert relief. Plan is a more than one hundred and fifty billion dollar pledge to bolster the technological independence one of the plans. Big goals is for europe to make up about twenty percent of global chip sales by twenty thirty. Which would be double their current market. Share it's all part of the blocks broader ambition of catching up to countries like the us and china when it comes to technology for more on this we turn to our reporters do. Hey stu thanks for being here. Thanks for having me okay. So why is the eu making this pledge. Now what's been going on in the tech sector that europe feels. It needs to address one of the things that the pandemic really showed was how dependent european technology is and other parts of the world especially for things like computer chips. So there's a global chip shortage right now and one of the reasons that there's been an unexpected surge for things that require computer chips so we're talking about laptops and tablets is part phones for for people who are doing remote work and schooling. But another thing that you might not think about requiring a lot chips cars cars now required dozens of chips for things like controlling the engine transmission. Backup cameras infotainment systems stuff like that and europe has a huge car industry. Yet you're thinking we're thinking companies like mercedes and bmw. Volkswagen and some of these companies has had to have to cut production and even furlough workers idol factories because the bill the cars. Because there aren't enough chipped going round in this world so the idea behind this is to have the european semiconductor companies have greater presence in the world so that these car companies don't have to go to places like the united states and asia by chips rate and i think when we think of the major global players in tack we think of the us we think of trying to and others we don't necessarily think of the e us tech scene. So what does the industry look like. They're now and how likely is push to work. As far as semiconductors are concerned the us and asia really dominate the sector. So you think of big companies like intel and does samsung. Tsmc there either in the us or asia. So you're trying to play catch up right now so you're does have a couple of big semiconductor companies like annex p. and am allen. The netherlands infineon in germany. But they are sort of in niches of the semiconductor industry. They focus on things like making the machines that make chips for instance or for specialized chips cars or industrial uses. They don't have the big chips that go into data centers or laptops or smartphones. Like the us or asia dies. So that's what they're trying to do. They're trying to really spur. This hub homegrown industry. But there's not a lot to start with and the learning curve for developing these really tough technology that requires really expensive manufacturing facilities. It's really steep and it's a nine years. That's a short amount of time to try to become a bigger player in the global chip industry right nine years till bat. Twenty thirty goal. They set for themselves. So why do they see this. As such a big priority. One of the stakes for the eu. One of the things That they realize was that volkswagen for instance they had to furlough workers idol factories because they couldn't get enough chips and they had to get those chips from other parts of the world. So this is a really really big deal for their economy. If some of their biggest industries can't operate because they're reliant in other regions. That's a huge problem for them. And that's that's been a story of their tech sector. In general for the past several years steel is the eu the only government taking steps like this or are we seeing similar action from others. The eu is not alone. And that's going to make its attempt to catch up and the chip industry even tougher one country. That's poured a lot of resources into advancing. Its domestic chip industry china. They set up. These huge government finds sometimes worth tens of billions of dollars in an attempt to catch up with places like the us and taiwan. Now the us in response they recently. The congress recently passed its own legislation to sponsor projects to spur the us chip industry. And each of these projects might be worth billions of dollars. They might get billions of dollars in tax taxpayer aid or financial incentives to build facilities in america to try to stay ahead of places like china. So that's going to be a really tough thing for europe to do is first of all the competing against two very well funded region and china and the us plus they're starting from from a smaller base and that's a couple of countries working to build up sort of technological independence. What does it mean that. So many governments are focused on that. What kind of impact could that have right now. We're talking about the potential decoupling of the tech sector. So there's been tariffs and expert controls between the us and china basically for something like chip industry is really important for a couple of reasons. One is military. The most advanced fighter jets and tanks and drones require really sophisticated chips. Artificial intelligence requires skated chip. So the wars of the future going to be determined could be determined by semiconductors on top of that there is a economic independence. If you're an apple samsung you need the most advanced chips to build your best laptops and smartphones. So we're talking hundreds of billions of dollars at stake here. If countries can't trade technology with with each other we're gonna see slower development of things like electronics. So we're talking billions of dollars at stake and possibly slower development if people have countries aren't willing to share technology with each other.

So how did your professional path leader to search. Please don't leave out. How cedar performance visit scrape up. Dick place for the start and especially i love. Dr and i agree similar to her and said lord is so many people in search we. You know it's it's things that line us up for this work even though we have no idea and then all of the sudden one day it's the only thing that we can do and so funny thing. It's actually a funny thing. Because i don't i mean maybe there are lots of other professional You know sort of professional career paths. That are like that. But this one seems uniquely wacky in that way definitely definitely and i think it's people think about what their superpowers might superpower. I rarely the smartest person in room. Sometimes the most interesting but what.

But i i just decided that this is what i needed to do
Bill Barnwell Breaks Down NFL Quarterback Moves
"So bill. We gave you do the math a whole month away from this podcast before our dependency bio chemically kicked back in so i just hope the last four weeks have been everything that you personally needed. Pablo got on many vacations. I turned around my life after six months of just staying watching football now. Bill barn wells weekly column on. Espn plus and he hosts the bill. Barnwell show podcast realistically. I have done something that few human beings have accomplished. I managed to get one pack of moments from nba. top shot. yeah. We share that same addiction. You are far deeper into the game than me. I realized over the weekend. I just want there to be an nfl top shot. Because i feel like that's going to happen right. It has to. i mean. Imagine the things you could do. You could send somebody that colts fake punt from years ago or or if you wanted to try some of your friends. Perhaps you could send the russell wilson interception from the nfl top shot to a certain person with the initials m used to host the show. Yeah just randomly picking in that example in those initials absolutely but bill. We dragged you back here. Speaking of a certain quarterback who threw a certain interception emotionally terrorized ours. Because this is an especially dramatic. Nfl offseason. they're all these big name. Quarterbacks who want out of these relationships that seemed from a distance at least pretty broken and russell wilson and the seahawks. I need to ask you about that. I because i know russ isn't feeling respected by head coach. Pete carroll reporting. I know that carol wants to revoke all of his cooking privileges. We've heard now. Russell wilson like storming out of meetings which is kind of funny to imagine like door very lightly slamming so this particular soap opera. What is all of it. Feel like to you much ado about nothing really. I mean i just i. Just don't buy russell wilson drama. I go back to his contract. Negotiations this is the same player in the same agent. Who wants imply that he would leave football in the middle of these negotiations entering the final year of his deal to try professional baseball. Where russell wilson once for the iraqis and the organization he hit to twenty eight in the low minors before returning to college football. It was not a realistic threat. But if that way does he want the seahawks to give him more helpful on the offensive line which has been sort of the crux of his public complaints. Yeah i do believe that. And i think that the seahawks could benefit from giving him more help. They relied on russell wilson to run his way out of sacks and free pressures from unblock players which has worked for that stretch buddies also taken a ton of hits cuss russell. Wilson plays the way he plays. He is going to take a ton of sacks regardless of how good his protection is the best way honestly pablo to get him. Hitless frequently would be to run the ball more. Which is the exact thing. Russell wilson was trying to get the seahawks do lasso last offseason. So there is something here but i very much doubt that leads to a trade. My favorite thing about this new cycle i think is that russell wilson has relayed via his wrapped. Adam schefter that he is not demanding a trade but if he were there are these four specific teams that he'd like to go to the bears. The cowboys the saints. The raiders does any of that make sense to you know not at all i mean the classic russell wilson tropez that ciara was going to pick teams him in new york in los angeles which this is the opposite that list even the teams he chose are so strange. Maybe you'd argue that. He chose teams with great offensive. Lions triumph of the seahawks. But the trade doesn't really add up the same. Stu have agreed offensive line. But they're like sixty five million dollars over the salary cap. The cowboys have a great line. Whenever everyone's healthy but they also have back prescott. that's not gonna work either the bears. I don't understand. They don't have a great line or any cap space. That one makes no sense to me on either. Level the raiders. Maybe are the most interesting and plausible candidate of the bunch with a great line and some cap space to work with. But when i think about jon. Gruden as raiders coach. He wants quarterbacks to do exactly what jon gruden wants on every single play. I don't think any if it really adds up to meaningful trae dialogue. I don't think there's going to be a conversation between the seahawks and another team about trying to make a trade for russell wilson work but this is twenty twenty one anything is possible
"stu" Discussed on Slick Talk: The Hospitality Podcast
"Recovery mentioned open. Api i think also initiate connectivities more standards. I think we also working on this something. More opening a happy opened up behind the out of office. I mentioned some people. Were more out of the office. Nothing there is huge. Potential people remotely working flexibility and more. I think everything we've more than twenty twenty eight so we'll be more. Hopefully we will travel more again. Doing have more members. Everything's more than last year. So the fighting if you taking the first letters to get our bedroom so it was more like what we made it. So it wasn't highs emails so look like a victim. Based on the words kind of i did as well might think indeed what you mentioned this open. Api connectivity for sedation. For short stu fragmented too difficult. The whole industry they we talked about the previous episodes. It's too difficult to to move. Not at once. I think there will be consolidation more open standards and the and again also mentioned this. This this work route will be different if we talk about this morning. How do we see it. Do we go back to fully to the office. I don't think so. It just goes on hybrid model. And i think everybody who went actually to model. They're not going back so there will be more more more will be. We'll be high. But i think is good. I think busy will be also standard that people travelling still for staying longer work from there. I think also you can use your creativity more so i think what shoot have what could happen in. Maybe timeframe of ten years been now in one year with innovation way of people. Nothing working from home or working from a work. Ation whatever how people on this nowadays. So i think it's just expiration with happening. Twenty two more on that fleet. It rolls in while at this question. Do you think were jobs will be offered or new jobs for us. I is noise where we were doing..
Johnny Depp is 'radioactive' says Hollywood bigwig
"Johnny depp There were some great details in that story in the hollywood reporter about how radioactive he is. And we've talked about some of them before the five million dollars spent making sure the ashes of hunter s. thompson were exploding over a canyon somewhere. Thirty thousand dollars a month in wind bills. He has to regret the cannon thing i mean. He's at some point. He's gonna know if he doesn't yet he's but the thing that we were laughing about during the local hour is johnny depp. The details are amazing. In this story one of them is the bodyguards plural who would have to wipe the drugs off of his face in order to get him to a scene of some sort where they just have to brush drugs office but one of the things that was told in that story is that he was just merely needing an earpiece because he wasn't bothering to remember his lines. And that's where we're headed. Mike i'm sorry to tell mike and billy this now but still got if you haven't seen enough of the sort of lazy entitlement of stugatz who can't hear and the jokes are coming out slower because he needs to help through his ears on some of this stuff. It's going to only get worse. That's not going to get better. There is no better from there. Even with hungary less lazy seeing dollars in his eyes to god's perfect time to set on his own right.
The Mindfulness of Music and the Sound of the Soul
"This week i the honor of hearing stewart foo cts. Play the ukulele. He's teaching a course called ukulele then where he teaches you to find yours then through this beautiful simple instrument come. Let's dive distorts head and hear how his fingers help him get out of his mind. Hello stuart welcome. It's such a joy to be speaking with you today. Because i have to say as i heard your music i had to just find out what's going on inside when you play thank you. I'm trying to figure out what's going on inside two. Or maybe i should say really curious about continuing to watch what's going on inside you play the lali like i've never seen anyone play the ukulele before and i saw you mary with a sensibility. That is investigating your own internal process and it was clear that music is a big part of your spiritual journey in. It always has been even before the journey became or for became more consciously aware of it. Can you take back to the beginning. Can you tell us a little bit about this journey shore. I should say before we begin. I do a lot. Especially after. I've been teaching for four days straight but To give it to a straight as in on kidding as possible. I'll say that it began for me. My earliest memory in life and i've tried to remember further back but my earliest memory is sitting in my living room. My father comes home and My father was an amateur classical guitarist. But i always say it was an amateur an amatori. The one who loves. And i remember watching him come home from work after very stressful long day of working in the film industry in new york city and he came home and i remember thinking. Where did dad go. He seemed like the air had been taken out of him. You just was a little deflated. And he wasn't his usual playful upbeat self but he would sit down after eating dinner. Sit down with his guitar and he would play one chord and he would just who he was back. Smile is back and he would then begin to play A piece in my guitar is tucked away in a case far over there but he would play a piece of music. It's famous spanish ballot. I demonstrated on a ukulele but the point of the story is that i became fascinated with the guitar in the music in general because early experience of seeing the healing benefits on my father and i saw right away and that made a deep impression on me. That music is something. That's rejuvenating something that we can turn to for wellness and to To make ourselves whole again when we feel disconnected from ourselves and he taught me shortly. After that i might have been six years old i would sit in his lap and he taught me how to push down the string against the fret board. This is a ukulele not a guitar but in right away. I remember like it was this morning. The feeling of the vibrations going through my finger into my wrist into my elbow down on the floor through my sheet and it was really blissful really felt good remember laughing hysterically so he taught me how to count up the frets and he patiently taught me how to play this malady and we would eventually play together. He would play the right hand. Just play this piece of music together and after those experiences i started to get really curious about because always loved nature. I would take that same guitar into the woods. When he was at work. i would You come home and take the guitar into the wilderness. And i had no knowledge of what playing the guitar was or even interest in. What's now playing a song. Was i never heard of any musicians. Related knew about my dad.
Creating water out of thin air in the Navajo Nation
"This week. We're talking about how technology can help us. Death to climate change. The west is in a drought. That's only getting worse. And drought is an even bigger problem in places that have uneven access to water to start with in the navajo nation in the southwestern u. s. many homes have no running water at all. The tribe is working with the startup source. Which makes hydro panels powered panels that pull water vapor from the air and condense it into clean drinking water and so is president of the cameron chapter in the navajo nation. Where one family got source panels. The summer. he described the water. They make when. I was a child when we went out hunting. Small game My grandfather when the storm went through new would have craters in the ascent stone. The hell water. So we stu been over and drink the water craters in pure rainwater when i first tasted that water at this flashback to that part of my memory. So that's what the water tastes like really clean pure water by it came from the rain. Wow and is it the one family in cameron. That has them right now right now. Yeah people that don't have running water. Some of them have to drive now or and a half one way to town to get drinking water. People want waters not expensive. Sheriff you have access to the store around the corner. Yes but for us in reality. Is that going to the town of flagstaff. You're spending maybe fifty dollars on gas and other things when you go by water in town a case of water water actually caused a new round. Sixty eighty bucks you know. How often do people have to go like he. Can you estimate how much a month that might cost. And how much somebody is this. One household is saving with hydro panels. Would they would go probably three days out of the week to get water but we also have voting that still rely on their livestock cattle horses. So they're running almost Daily to haul water right more. Broadly when you look at bringing infrastructure to cameron and the navajo nation hydra panels but also like renewable energy new electric grids. Do you feel hopeful that you know. The reservation has a chance to maybe create a new vision of energy and water. That isn't so destructive one. The things about the climate change also is that we get more sunlight now and i think the tribe itself has a lot of interest in renewable energy and energy developed in our community and cameron could be sold to california and surrounding states. At the same time we also would like a smaller scale of solar energy to homestead. Are off the grid that way. We don't have to run more wires on our land which is such an eyesore to me. There's a price you pay you know. And and the price is now gonna be coming out of your pocket but are you willing to sacrifice the beauty of the land to get power. I mean do you think that could become a model for the rest of the country and other parts of world. I always tell people that are interested in in trying. Something new in cameron were willing to try it. Here be the i if it works here work anywhere
