"Be it in the United States or elsewhere. This first and foremost necessitates resettling refugees who are currently waiting in camps around the world to reach a place that they can call home. It also calls upon the international community to increase quotas for Afghan allies to accept more at risk Afghans for permanent resettlement and to expand programs like humanitarian parole. To generate more pathways for those in need. Third, as we find pathways forward for these individuals, we must not separate families. We must preserve them. Or at the very least create strict limits for the amount of time that families can be separated from family separation like mind generate irreparable harm. But clear and specific change to existing admission policies can ensure that other miners do not face the same fate that befell me and my family. Fourth, and this is the most important of them all. We must reestablish an international diplomat diplomatic presence in Afghanistan to hold Taliban accountable for their actions and provide counselor services to the people. It opens channel to address Taliban's actions rather than cutting off isolating and eliminating avenues for influence. And I have witnessed what engagement with the Taliban can look like firsthand. The negotiations that resulted in my release from captivity were the direct result of effective diplomacy with the Taliban on the world stage. Diplomats spoke to each other openly and resolved an issue of mutual concern. And while the success of these discussion is perhaps an anomaly, the kind of diplomacy demonstrated by my release can and should serve as a model for achieving other desired change for the future of Afghanistan, such as the restoration of girls education above grade 6 freedom of press, bolstering women's rights and most urgently increasing humanitarian assistance. At the same time, at the same time, or diplomacy can't be a blank check, the Taliban must live up to their end of the bargain to demonstrate that they are ready to engage in diplomacy as an actor that upholds basic human rights that ensure necessary freedoms and that does not take or hold hostages. At the end of the day the situation in Afghanistan is an extremely complex one. It can't be summed up in an 8 minute talk I wrote four days ago emerging from captivity. Yet there are tangible solutions and I'm in the privileged position of being able to advocate for them, but I'm here today to tell you that you are too. The truth of the matter is especially in the case of Afghanistan change has always and will continue to start with everyday people. This fall tens of thousands of people from around the world banded together at the grassroots level to aid Afghans in need. You don't need to be an expert to engage to volunteer to contribute to lobby to even simply welcome a refugee to advocate for them. As Margaret Mead once said, never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. On the afternoon of my release ten days ago, I at long last climbed out of my basement cell. And into the sunlight without anything binding my hands are covering my eyes. I could see the sky. I traveled out of the prison through Kabul city in corolla sedan. I passed the American embassy and arrived at Kabul international airport. I walked onto the tarmac, I climbed into the C 17, I shook hands with American Qatari and British diplomats. And suddenly I was a free man again. But again, I was one of the lucky ones. Ultimately being a captive reminded me of a time when I was helpless and needed a voice. Now that I'm released, I have my voice back and mercifully. It puts me in a position where I can advocate for that little boy with the Statue of Liberty patch on his unit, CR donated genes chasing the American Dream. I hope you'll join me. PRX.

"Has everybody's previous relationships didn't work out. That's why they previous relationships. So one, take that shit off yourself, sis. Yes, I've gotten pretty glow on the wine now. Someone put a lip. But take that off your shoulders because everybody's previous relationships didn't work. That's why they previous motherfucking relationships and none of them work, right? So don't give yourself that insecurity of like things aren't working out for me. Dating is like gambling, baby, okay? I play crunch. Okay? I come in with enough money that I'm like, if I lose all this money, I don't give a fuck, right? That's how you have a date, right? Like you don't give a fuck, right? I know in an hour, I'm gonna be hot for 15 minutes. And when it gets hot, just statistically. I bet I'm betting. I put my bets down, right? So that's what you're doing. You getting hot right now you like this person, so you put in your best style. You put your best out. What you're not doing is putting down several bets. I don't just play one number baby girl. You gotta play all the numbers, statistically, 6 is a good number to play 'cause you can get it multiple ways on the dice. 8 is a good number to play 'cause you can get it multiple days on the dice. You know, like a four, like what you're doing right now is you playing a hard four and you just rolling and rolling and rolling, hoping you won't get a hard four statistically baby girl, hard for it's hard to get. So what's your number? Put your money on more numbers. Go on some dates with some other motherfucking men. Go out there, have fun. Have a hot girl summer. Stop putting all your eggs in this one basket and see how he acts. Because right now, you're just betting on him. Betting on him betting on him. Let him bet back on you. And you see if you want to be with this guy, go on some dates. Put some more money down on the table because what's gonna happen is no matter what, you're gonna win more 'cause you're hot right now. So we are hot, you don't give a fuck about any of.

"Genders. Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys. Okay, so she is dating a white male TV. All the time, but also can we talk about that cat going to town? That cat was not done the entire video. And I thought that was amazing. That was like this show is dirty. I need to clean it off. I think we had was a little it was very sensual. Yeah, it was. Isn't it enough to tell someone that you're dating? It would be enough for me. If someone told me when I was dating, you look so sexy in that shirt. You look so hot when you wear clothes like that. It turns me on so much. For me, that would be enough to be like, oh, well, maybe I should rock this look then. I just don't give him any compliments when he wears things. Yeah. Something smells different. And then of course literally anything else, it's like, wow, actually, mama, woohoo. How about. Wait, ayo, you're saying pretend she has synesthesia, and then is that when you were saying? Yeah. Yeah, so full out, going to just one second. You have a completely different sense. I also feel like with guys you can like, I don't know. Buy somebody like a shirt. But see, I will tell you this, though, this man right here, he owns about 79 band t-shirts, okay? And Andy like, likes what he likes. I remember the first time I bought him a hoodie at urban because I'm also the kind of person where like, if it's on sale, I'm just buying it, right? And I'm like, this is on sale, this would fit you. And I get it for him. And I was like, oh, here's this hoodie. It literally is just a different color than the one he had, which is the same hoodie in a different vibe. And he's like, and I was like, here, and he's like, okay. I was like, why don't you like? And he was like, it's not my hoodie. He has the clothes. This is early in our love. This was not like recently, but it was like first few months. Early where he was like, this is where what I wear. And I've had to kind of pull you into some interesting tiny dots on a shirt into a button down moment. It is surprising how many cis straight men are really actually very attached to their clothing and very sort of create stories around it about it's important and truly in a way that you think that women do with fashion, but guys just aren't as fashionable, but still have such a connection to what they're wearing. They never want to get rid of anything. It just is a thing. My childhood, my dad had the bigger, he had the hers closet to her's closet. And my mom just has three closets, one's downstairs when she has two upstairs. And my dad had the big one and I was like, and it's like full length, like walked in. He has all this shit. And I was like, when does he even buy clothes? I've never seen him in my clothes. I've never seen him come in with a bag. I don't know how the clothes appear. I feel like he's hiding it. In this situation, it's tough 'cause it is like you don't want to be like telling your partner what to wear. And I don't know. Like, do you just see him in a check or start and just be like, oh, oh my God, my pussy just drive up. When I look at your shirt, I don't know what happened. This is Eric. It's so arid. Oh, God. That's just something about the checkers. Anyway, so I'm not going to grocery store. You want some? I don't know how you suddenly, you know. That might not be subtle. Right. That might not be subtle. Yes, my thoughts. Oh, through my vaginal canal. Oh, God. Listen, mister safi, how do you feel about this? Sure. They are loving this conversation. I'll write my parents are watching, oh no. No, they can handle it. They can handle it. They're killed. We like taking them on a journey. But he knows who I am. I'm pretty sure. I give you what Brian was saying about being like, oh, wow. Something different. Woohoo. Something's in there. What do you think of me though? 'cause I think about it opposite way. We're saying this because you're wearing a checkered shirt and like pussy is arid. That is what you said Lacey. My ovaries turned into little raisins. That was that might be a little bit meaner. Then I love what you're wearing. I'm throwing mine in the hat and saying is it more nice to be like, maybe I love you. Can you just buy some different shirts? 'cause you got so many of these damn shirts. And I love you so much and I love seeing you every day. But it started to look like a cartoon character who like, hey, Arnold every day, baby. You know? And yeah. Like, I feel like maybe it's more straightforward 'cause I feel like all the other stuff, now that I hear it, I'm like, oh, that's nagging. Yeah, I guess I should have waited. Okay. That I hear it. Exactly what you said. My other idea is you could just put like when you make sure this is dark at night. And you have to leave an open and being like, come in the closet later, or whatever. And then he lay part coming the closet at ten 45 p.m.. Meanwhile, you've been in there all night because you're hiding in there. So he finally goes and he's like, oh, wow, what's awaiting me in here? And you go in and you are holding a knife to your throat. And you say, if you don't stop wearing these, I'm absolutely gonna slice them up right off. And then see if that works, then it might. Honestly, sometimes you really have to go big to get anywhere. Yeah. Yeah. The last idea is you like, if there's somebody who's a guy who like who style, you actually really like if you can think of like a guy or a type of guy or whatever whose style you really like, then make him your phone background. Just like, yes. Make his marker, you know? The photo of a solid shirt, your phone back. Like no person wearing it just a solid man shirt. No, not helping anymore. We just threatened a 72 hour hold. We've got my fallopian tubes or husks now. We've got we've got your hideous. Yeah, yeah. I feel like it just, for me, someone gives me a compliment. I need it. Take it run with it, yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely..

I'm letting everyone run all over me. And say yes to too much, I like, and when I say things, people don't listen to me and I'm like, but I said it already. And then when the bad thing happens, I'm like, but I said this two months ago. So I'm learning how to be more, yes. My inner bitch. Okay, yes. Honestly, bring that to these letters. These people need tough love. So I want you to be direct with them. Don't tell them what will make them feel good. That's true. That's what my mother says. She says, my job isn't to make you feel good. My job to tell you the truth. Sure. That's a black mama. That's the truth that there's anybody made the book yet, black mama isms and it's called you don't you have McDonald's money? I think you just I think you just sold it. I think that's an outfitter coffee table book. That's right. I said koda pennants because I thought that was like if you are like, if you don't value yourself enough, you let other people kind of walk on you, right? I guess. I guess I want to be nice because I've dealt with a lot of mean people, so I just don't want to be like them, but I think of course corrected too much. Yeah. Brian, you're recovering nice guy, right? Who's learned to step into his truth? Yeah, I am. The day by day, but I'm trying to learn the power of no. There's nothing like saying no in front of a mirror. And meaning it? In front of a mirror? It's good practice, yeah. You know, it's really confident it's moving to look yourself in the mirror and say, no? No, no. No, but I think yeah, I do think that I sometimes am like you Lacey, I think I fall into the trap of not only just being nice, but of just wanting everyone to really like me. And then at the end of the day, with my relationship right now, he'll say, what do you want to watch for TV? And I'm like, oh, anything you want. And then he picks something and I'm like hyperventilating because I don't know. That are just like, I'll just suffer through this. I'll just step her through this. Otherwise, and then like a month later, I'm like, you've always beg what we want. Which is not healthy. And he's like, because you told him, tell me to. And I'm like, fair. Okay. But yeah, I suffer from that too, I say, for sure. And I am recovering from that, hopefully. Thank you. That was helpful to me. Okay, speaker. The latter is I'm excited. Now you know I'm so not qualified to give advice. That's basically what. Okay, I think IO is the most sane of all of us. Yes. She might be on drugs or the coding. Are you two nice aisle?

Yeah, I feel like deeply centered right now. Hey, wow. Wow. Wait, what does that feel like? Nikki, can you please put up Luke peas comment?

Well, then also I was just saying, so Brian's in Texas right now, how wonderful to take the time from visiting his family to do this show. What did your parents say when you were like, I have to go do a show online? You know, I told them it was a resume and my mom kept being like, well, we can all watch it together, right? And I was like, so I'm in it. She's like, cool, so we just started watching together. And it was actually very sweet. They put their iPad up and they're on chairs watching it together right now. Oh, that's why I was nervous when I said the F word, 'cause I said, I don't know what I'm saying. Being like, excuse you? Not at all. You know? That's my middle name. They gave me that middle name.

"Roll it. Well, well, well, hello, welcome to couple's therapy. My name is Ann. And I am Naomi. And we are here with our dear pets around us Mabel. Surround us. And you want to maybe lean in a bow tie. She's ready for everyone. Truly grateful. Maybe you've all come here to support her. Yes, thank you so much. Thank you. She just had her fourth round of chemo to that yesterday and today process. I don't know if really a three day process. If you count till tomorrow. Can you see it wearing on us? Do you see like we were just on our first vacation like a year and a half? We went for a couple of days to Palm Springs. And so I let my beard grow a little bit. Chock full of white. I don't know if it's just a pandemic, if it's just Asian, could just be aging. Or if it's also just like all the stuff we're dealing with with mammal, but it is sapping. Oh, you can kind of see some of mine. Y'all can see some of that girl. It is real. It is real, and I call it pandemic gray. Because I didn't have all that. No, okay, I didn't have on app before March 2020. Naomi's 28 and already looks like rogue. From the X-Men. I like that you said it like mister movie phone. That's a real throwback. Dial two. Or diagnosis murder. Dial four, or I married an expert murderer. I don't know. I tried to think of a movie from the past. I know I'm talking about that earlier today. I could think of a movie, so I literally was like, what TV show was on 20 years ago? Y'all can we talk a little bit about how veterinarians love to make you crazy? Can I get into that and drew? Well, I was gonna say, why don't we just go through Mabel's stuff and eventually get there? But if you want to start well now, what do you mean? Guys, we're on the uncharted waters. I love it. Go ahead. I'm gonna jump suit on show. It's probably you wanna start. I was just gonna go like, if you don't know what the process of chemotherapy is with a dog. Yes. Depending on, I guess, I guess it's different for every kind of dog that different chemicals, different, whatever's for Mabel. It is a two day process that we are doing every week for four weeks and then every other week for two months, two months, two months. So yeah, when I say halfway through, I mean, halfway through in terms of the number of treatments. We still have another two months of this. But she's doing good y'all, Mabel is doing way better. It's wild how this dog is straight chilling. I thought she was gonna like be real tire. She was gonna be like a little rickety. Mabel don't give a fuck, okay? I'm sorry, I heard parents were watching. I shouldn't be cursing. No. Mabel is chilling loving her life out here running these streets literally? She has poison coursing through every cell in her body and it is not slowing her down in the slightest. I swear to God, I'm like, we should all be so lucky. I know I couldn't do it, y'all. I literally was told I had a lumpy titty, and I said, cash it in. Cash it in. Wasn't even cancer. Just told that mati was lumpy and I said I'm out. I'm out. And I'm the one who told her. And I literally was like, okay, I need like the moment I was like, I'm lumpy, I'm gonna die. I'm just like, I take to my bed. I don't speak above a whisper. Right. I treat every conversation like it's the last year of Victorian. Very much so. We're like, Andy's like, I'm gonna go to the grocery store and I'm like, cherish it. Cherish it. I couldn't take it. That was like for just one week. And then Mabel up in here actually getting Nick chemotherapy and is like, can I eat some food? Can we hit the streets? And I'm like, yeah, you're right. You're right. Our neighborhood is like full of broken glass. It looks like crystal knock happens every night or something. And so it's very difficult walking me, but and I was like, not looking forward to the chemotherapy swallowing her down, but I was like, oh, it'll be easier to navigate the piles of broken glass and the burnt out husks of trash cans. Absolutely, when she is full of these chemotherapy chemicals, no, it's not. It's worse. She has more. The opposite. It's like a comic book. It's like she was bitten by a radioactive chemotherapy. Radioactive chemotherapy. Absolutely. I mean, didn't you say it was very very Wolverine? Yes. And Wolverine energy. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. It's like weapon X of course, a very common reference that everyone will get now. I'm actually, I bet that's more of a, I bet enough people have seen the movies at the very least, if not read them. I was gonna say adamantium. That is what I know. That's how many of those movies I've seen Adam Angie horses through Wolverine's veins. They are adamantium is his bones, right? I was not going to be replying. I was not going to correct it. I know, I know you weren't, and that's why we're still together. Because you will let me just pop up at the mouth. What did you say my first T-shirt should be, it's just me saying, I just be saying stuff. Sure. 'cause that's it. I just pop off at the mouth, let the chips fall where they may. After the jubu T-shirt sell out, then I'd just be saying stuff. Which is basically beside what? Okay, did Luke just call us nerds? Luke, I'm not a nerd. What if I just start fighting with people in the chat? And that's the whole thing. I don't put that comment up. The comments we want. When they insult us, Nikki, please don't put up comments insulting us. But so Friday, so it's basically like this. Friday, we take her across town, drive 40 minutes down. Santa Monica, historic root two to the vet hospital across town. And she gets a shot of chemicals and then the next day she we give her pills in the morning. Although every week it's been different. We thought last week we had settled on a routine where we get some dog food some wet dog food she likes and put the pills in. And she ended up last week. This week, now we're back to struggling with her begging her praying. I hated it. Frank God, cat food. Mabel loves cat food, and I'll do what it takes. I don't care. Grant, they literally cat food is like eating potato chips for a dog. The vet has said that..

"This podcast is Indy in the yummies where they can both laugh and hang with all they hear me talk at excellent vacationing with brunches and cuddling to messy situations and conscious and coupling from Netflix hook ups to single them with some Hulu tech sex regrets so feeling on your new jubu. They gonna talk about it yeah you are invited. I need a therapy I guarantee baby weekend. But I appreciate it. Ho Ho Ho. Welcome to couples therapy. My name is Andy. And I am NATO. You're a real-life couple. Real life couple of comedians. And on couples therapy we answer a couple different questions from a couple different listeners. Naomi. Andy. Naomi. It is the Christian mass. Coming up in a couple days, correct. Yes. Truly Christmas is around the corner. Now is anything like Liv moss, which is another Taco Bell. You wanna live moss? This Christmas. Okay, Taco Bell. You're gonna pay us for that one, 'cause that's pretty great. Pretty great. Speaking of pretty great, can I plug myself? Oh, speaking of pretty, not just pretty great. I was gonna say get rid of that pretty modifier, just absolutely great. Wonderful. Shining. Brilliant. New York Times approved. What are you going to plug Naomi? My episode of season three of the stand ups on Netflix, which debuts December 29th, each comic is their own half hour to razzle dazzle and we're having a good time. You heard Brian Simpson last week, so I hope you watch him. We got Janelle James, also the sand dunes coming up next week, so get into her. The point is, mark your cows, set up a reminder on Netflix for the stand up season three. Already, already getting accolades. It was named in The New York Times. Jason zhenan is the comedy beat journalist for The New York Times. And he did a roundup of comedy in 2021. What did you get Naomi? Best Netflix debut. Love it. It isn't even out yet, and he said it was the best. Love it. Bless you. That was very exciting. I truly do feel validated to be in the capitalist paper of rent. The grey lady herself. The great lady herself. So call the great lady because her heart is gray. What is she called the gray lady? I think newsprint is gray. It's black. What's black and white and red all over? We all know we all know the riddle. A zebra. In a farming factory. Okay, babe, what a bummer. My goodness. Ho. How about this? A zebra and a Santa suit. That we love. Yeah. That is sweet. So next Wednesday. Naomi special. Probably midnight the night before. Yep. If you can't wait. Yep. Call that clones a celebration baby. But yes, Brian Simpson also a stand up season three alum last week, Janelle James. Next week. This week because of the holidays, we thought we would take a little break. And back in the spring, I think. Yep, yep, yep, yep, spring of 2021. We did a live show live in quotes. I mean, it was live. But it was online at dynasty typewriter. Yes. With three of our most delightful pals, we got Brian safi from ask Rana and attitudes. We've got Lacey Moseley from scam goddess. We've got Iowa debris from everything, including big mail. And what we did was we had a little panel, and then we answered some listeners, advice questions. They sent in videos. That was gorgeous. A number of them paid for cameos. Including one that was insane. I don't know. I'll probably post this because it's so insane, but there's a anonymous British person in a rabbit costume. Yes. Yes, and that's like their character. Yes. Pay to have the British rabbit say things. So a number of people asked advice questions through cameo or send in videos of themselves, asking the questions and we did our darndest as usual to answer. And this was a fun group, a fun show and we thought what better gift to give? Yeah, than this good time. Yeah, let's take a break for the holidays. And have a little fun. I think do we have anything else to plug your special again? Next Wednesday. That's it. We've done it. We've done it. Tell everyone you know how to watch, set up individual Netflix accounts, all right? You gotta just watch the first four minutes, quite honestly. That's what the algorithm reads, okay? The first 28 days, the first four minutes. That's the stuff. Now I'm gonna stop plugging myself, but I'm gonna say.

"Mean, I think that, you know, he's deserves to be on the list, which Dale hates, but you know he's he's a guy that, you know, a lot of people really don't know that much about. He's only been riding here in the U.S. on a regular basis since 15. And, you know, he's he's he's become a go to writer and out west. He's got a bunch of writing titles that delmar, but he's not in the household name if you will. Category like maybe Joelle and my old friend, I read, and Jose Ortiz, Louis Sia's, but, you know, yeah, I think that if you're going to have to have these polls, which Dale hates, I guess they did get it right. All right, final topic for today. Again, you can listen to I asked, they answer every single weekend here, ten 30 eastern is when we kick it off on the equine forum. If you miss them, head back to our website and check out the podcast of each of these segments. They have been really informative. All right, final segment and it involves Gulfstream's championship meet, which begins on Friday. Trainer safi Joseph junior comes into the meat with a ton of momentum having just captured the fall meat title and the spring summer meat title before that. Safi finished 8 wins behind Hall of Famer Todd pletcher at last year's championship meet, of course, pletcher recorded his 18th title for the championship meet last year. He's been unstoppable. Joseph was quoted in an article this week, guys, is saying the championship meet is Todd's meat. Last year we were pretty close, but we didn't have as many horses as we have this year. I think we can give him a run for his money. What are the chances safi Joseph junior walks away with the championship meat training title this year? He's got a solid chance he wins a lot of races, but I will say one thing, Todd pledge to walk away with the money title. So it'll be about show me the money. I don't think he was concerned about the number of wins anymore. So he just went in the big ones and he went all the big ones down there. He's powerhouse getting stronger all the time. Yeah, I mean, Todd is he's mister Gulfstream, just like he's mister Saratoga with, you know, he wins all those meat titles. It was almost shocking to some people a couple years ago when she had Brown started is running back Tod off. Can saffy Joseph do it? Yeah, why not? I mean, he had he actually started more horses than Todd during last year's winter meat. But, you know, it's also like I don't want to say like in this to the JVs trying to take on the varsity. And I'm not saying that safiya's a JV trainer, but the analogy is that he's got to step it up a little bit and he's got more horses, but Todd's got a bunch of horses and Todd's quality is usually always been more than SAP. But, you know, safiya's a good horseman and he's going to get his shera wins. Does he have enough in his barn to knock off Todd? I don't know about that. But if I was going to do a poll on this, I think I put Todd on top. What about you, Dale? Yeah, I'll put him on top anyway, but he's way on top of me. Sophie could win the title for winning the most races, but Todd went to title for winning the races. You know, that's an interesting point because so often there's press releases that are sent out after every meat at racetracks and they say, oh, so and so was the leading trainer. So and so was the leading owner. So it was the leading jockey. What do trainers covet more? Is it that leading trainer title by number of wins or would they much rather finish second or third in the standings and walk away with more money? Well, I'd speak for myself. I think earlier in my career training titles were very important. They got less and less important. And I'm sure same with Todd and more important about trying to win the right races and develop the right horses and you start thinking about your legacy a little more. And I think that more be remembered more for big races in multiple races. But isn't it more important though to also put money in your pocket too? That's the big races. Show me the money. Well, we'll see how it plays out again. That championship meet kicking off on Friday at pletcher safi Joseph, both going to be loaded and coming down there with the best horses. As will Dale Romans Dale looking forward to your horses strutting their stuff at Gulfstream, my friend. Yeah, we're gonna have a good winner. Think about a great fall and some good two year olds coming on to be three when I'm just gonna be a fun winter. All right, we'll see if gael Romans can dethrone Todd Fletcher. What do you think? I don't think so, not a number of ways. So I just wanted to be beaten his first time he ever won a race where he beat me. I seem to beat me from the very beginning. His first race I ran second. Maybe this will be the winter of Romans. Who knows? I like that. The winter of Romans. Well, Dan, we'll talk to you next week. Timmy will talk to you next week. Appreciate the time guys. I ask the answer, we'll do it all over again. Ten 30 Eastern Time next Saturday, fun stuff..

"To this crazy. Scientists urologist a bunch of kooks. And they don't want to deal with it so vannatter bush who was in charge of that worked with them to get the sign. Get the pilots to try it out and they did. Nothing happened for almost a year. So finally he said the problem was transferred the other way so we got the scientists the crazy artists to get in the carpets with the pilot and they discovered when they were flying over the atlantic or when they were flying over battlefield the pilots when they were being shot at fine hundreds miles an hour. They didn't want to deal with in a thirteenth switches on these crazy boxes worked but there are so many switches there. We didn't have time to figure it out. They realized that technology was great. The user interface was lousy. They went back identified. This created this display the movies with the oscilloscope and sweeping line. Put it in the plans. Planes went out within thirty days to germany. Lost one third of ubud fleet two months later the german admiral sent a message. All the boats in the atlantic withdraw. The dallas lost. The lanes were clear to resupply england. The lanes were cleared for an allied invasion your so. That's how managing the transfer is so important. You need to be gardner. Not right they say you need to set up a loose shots to have in a business sense. Your soldiers are are actually delivering. The profits from franchises. That you've already established you gotta make sure that there is. They're separated but there's a channel of communication between the now you also write about different types of lucia. Some of them are more about strategy. Some of them are more about products tells about that why matters this is enormously especially today because there are these two types of it. There's a a product. Explain what i mean. But there's a product that everybody says will never work whether that was telephone where people sit out. It doesn't work that if it does is just going to be a toy the transistor you could never make stretch out of solid state devices or personal computers digital products and people said could never work. Small shifts in strategy are subtle changes in how you deliver stuff to customer. That had known technique. I'll give you an example sam walton. When he was a young kid wanted to open a retail store. So i want to do it where people are which is big cities so of course it turns out his wife didn't like big cities and said i'll sam honey support your dream but i'm not letting town with more than ten thousand people so he liked being married also liked clam hunting and he discovered. There was one region in the country whether these four states that are you know media points in four different quayle seasons. We said. let me go there. Because i'm not gonna quayle all year round and also remarried. Win win bentonville arkansas. That's where he opened his store new technologies. He just moved a slightly different place. Sold stuff a little bit cheaper white out the entire industry that was s title in child. No technology so the problem is most people have a blind spot to one or the other especially today in our culture today. We worship products. Brian product these product. Innovators myths subtle shifts in strategy. And i'll give you an example. I mean if you remember when ibm was dominant computer company. In the world. The industry was ibm. In the seven dwarfs it was so much bigger than any other computer company. And what happened to that. They're not even players in that in that computer business now. What happened to them. They had a blind spot what was by. They saw themselves as a company and that was true for thirty or forty or fifty years. People think the personal computer took out. Ibm not what happened. Ibm was the dominant product company. And they thought what we do. Is we make people buy our products. Hey personal computers and other product. Let's do it. And they went all in and personal computers and there were a little bit after apple a little bit after commodore and tiara and radio shack and they ate their lunch. They went to number one they at billions of five billion sales. In first three years they were the dominant personal computer company happened. They missed a subtle shift in strategy. They missed with customers cared about so in the course of building. This product is everybody buys. Ibm brand because we're ibm. We make the best products in another product by this stuff in the course of building that computer. They said the stuff inside doesn't matter slow stuff like oh i don't know. The operating system outsource that to at the time and thirty two person company in seattle called microsoft and other components that called the microprocessor. That also doesn't matter what matters is product in our brand because that's what people want the product. So let's we're going to outsource to a little Chipmaker company that's kinda struggling financially in silicon valley called intel fast forward. They didn't realize customers didn't care about the brand. They just wanted to send emails to their friends and for that. The brand of the box doesn't matter what matters is standards stuff like software microprocessor. Today the combined. Mike marquis of microsoft and intel is well over one and a half trillion dollars. Ibm is not even a tenth of that. So that's what happens when you miss your blind spot. What is a lesson from the book about how to be effective as a leader in a large organization. The three things you need to do one into set by since. I don't have a very good memory. I remember it. Visually i remember it as an ice cube a garden hoe and a heart ice cube separate your artists in your soldiers does different jobs different languages. You need different systems. Ice and water number to be a garden. Moses you gotta manage the transfer number three may actually be the most important anyways and it's not talked about as much and it's it's so frustrating people get so wrong number three. I mean love your artists and soldiers equally. I'll give you an example. A friend of mine is a well-known magazine and his putting is in charge of putting out an issue every thirty days and she was complaining to me. She said the senior management is just always in love with whoever squeaking the loudest about the the latest shiny penny in about others as we could deal with this purge blah blah blah blah and pays no attention to the people who are doing ninety five percent of the work of putting out a magazine every day. So how does it make. Those people feel like crap taken for granted. Why raining little scrapers. Getting all the attention from the ceo's what you find is truly great leaders have learned to balance and appreciate because you need just having an idea is getting the ball from your your goal to your five yard line. The next ninety five yards down the field is about turning that idea into a product about delivering product and then on time on budget. You need the soldiers for that ours for that and they both have to be appreciated. And let's go so for the many folks here who are at being worst building company. So they're at they're very embryonic stage. What are some lessons.

The culture has coarsened where people don't have conversations discriminate where people aren't actually concerned about ideas but their concerns merely about confirming their own existing biases and in some ways in many ways. Next big idea claw is a direct. I think there are potent antidote to that. I think is one reason why it's grown so fast so it's really it's a delight to be part of it. In the reason it's a delight to be part of it is to get an early look at some extraordinary books including the book. We're going to talk about tonight. It is call lou jots by this guy now. I always think it's interesting to start with people's backstory because gave us a hint savvy. But where did you grow up. I grew up in jersey princeton. The mean streets of princeton new jersey. Ask a very rough gang so you so tell us about your mother and your father and and if you can like what's it like growing up with two parents. Who are physicists. Recognize your mother is here so be polite. Act should just stop by saying that. Every now. And then. When i get these kind of glorifying introductions i say gosh. I wish my mother was in the audience. I hope you believe even ten percent of that stuff so far also i should say it may be the first time i've ever been introduced preceded by a story on colonoscopy so thanks visual which will no longer accept to both of us. What was it like growing up. This is serious question because it like you like you like. You came to write this book at home where he wrote this book. Twelve thirty nine late forties. Yeah so you can't say a whole history of your life until you got going to hear a little bit about it. So what were you like his kid. What were you interested in. I think back at sounds dramatic and glorious to astrophysicists parents but a lot of the times like what. What's for dinner. Is hokey havener. Who's gonna open. Who's going to fix the vcr for those people. Remember what that was. But i think what it did. In the benefit of the excitement of that is we had a family of asking questions. So when you're a scientist you really focus on asking interesting questions. And that that stayed with me my whole life and that kind of drove a lot of things in my life and changes that i made in my life and how i think about what i wanna do. Next is curiosity. Do you have to come to the dinner table arm with a question. Mom is that right now. It wasn't like ebay. Just you see that around you. They're always like oh here's something in the world like when you're to turn into therapy sessions. Maybe a little bit. Sanford coming here. Did you have a sense of what your parents did like when you were when you were a kid. Did you like physicists. Did now no clue now. But you know we'd be driving. I'd be driving along with my dad. And i in down the street and you'd see this shimmer and thing that looks like a lake driving asphalt and incentives. Just ignoring. he'd be like well. Why do you think that why does it look like and we talk about refraction that just creates. I'm sure that happened to that's cool. I think that's interesting but you ended up studying physics in college. I did and you know. Part of that. Curiosity thing is that you are just you see stuff in the world. Why is the sky blue. I mean that's sort of classic you start looking around. Why is water wet. He's just start asking why the world is the way that it is and you just keep going and so you went even further and physics to get a. And what was the impetus behind that. Just like more questions. Yeah it's it's just. You're just teasing in undergraduate science. Just learning some of the basics of the basic rules the basic language inserted like writing. You learn some basic techniques of writing but that's very different than producing a book jersey go to graduate school learn. Okay done all the elementary rules. Now how do we figure out something new about the world. Now it just interesting but you chose not to pursue that path.

"Curator daniel pink and physicist turned biotech entrepreneur. Safi call in my introduction to the event. I shared with the crowd that very personal effect. Dan's book when the scientific secrets a perfect timing had are my life. It's a book which. Dan devotes many hair-raising pages to the correlation between the afternoon slump and medical malpractice two months ago colonoscopy scheduled. I called up and canceled and it was not going to go into over to say. You should definitely go if you if you plan to ever get surgery in the balance of your lives. Definitely go out and buy win or maxed. I introduced safi. South mccalla is an extraordinary person. I had the great pleasure speaking with his mother earlier this evening if you are the son of a legendary astrophysicists and legendary theoretical physicists. What do you do. it's obvious isn't it. You graduate sumo laude from harvard. Get a phd in physics at stanford and then you say well. Maybe i need to do something different. So you take a job advising companies at mckinsey which of course inspires you to start a company of your own. A revolutionary biotech firm aiming to cure cancer and then to cap it off. You write a book about the intersection of physics history and business. It's called loon shots. How to nurture the crazy ideas that win wars cure diseases and transform industries. One person described it as the davinci code meets freakonomics. It's a brilliant book about how you can use the simple laws of physics to provoke creative breakthroughs and it's a wonderful treat to listen to sock conversation with dan. Maybe even do it. I did close your eyes and pretend that once again you're sitting shoulder to shoulder with a bunch of strangers learning something new all. Enjoy the conversation tonight. So further ado dan.

Next big idea claw is a direct. I think there are potent antidote to that. I think is one reason why it's grown so fast so it's really it's a delight to be part of it.

Hundreds Missing After Deadly Flooding in Germany

"And victims of the deadly flooding there earlier this week. More than 160. People are confirmed dead and hundreds more are unaccounted for. Several countries were affected, but by far the hardest hit has been Germany. A number of communities there have been devastated with roads washed out and hundreds of homes and businesses destroyed. Many residents whose homes are still standing can't get into them now as authorities keep people away for fear of mudslides, Spink are Safi had that happened to him today. He is a resident of ER stat, a town near Cologne that suffered severe damage I tried today. To go there and check if I can collect some documents, an important things I have there, but the police told us that there is no water right now. But because of the heavy flooding, there is the danger of land sliding that houses may Slide down. Safi and his three Children were forced to evacuate their home on Thursday afternoon. As the floodwaters rose. His wife was away at the time and wasn't allowed back into town by police. Have since been reunited, and the family is safe now, but the town is in ruins, Saffi says. Police and firefighters continue to comb through what's left looking for survivors, the fear that there are more than 30 cars, which Were stuck under flooding, and they fear that they will find more bodies as they search the cars There were above I think

The COVID-19 vaccine is nothing short of a technology miracle

"Vaccines are being administered. This week in the uk less than a year after covid nineteen became a devastating pandemic and the vaccines from pfizer in partnership with biontech and the one from maduna use a new type of vaccine technology. That's sort of like engineering. Traditional vaccines introduced fragments of virus protein into the body for its learn to recognize an attack. These vaccine use something. Called messenger are a or m are in a to give the body a blueprint to manufacture its own virus fragments to attack safi because the biotech investor and author of loon shots how to nurture the crazy ideas that win wars cure diseases and transform industries few weeks ago my wife and i bought one of these vaccines cleaning robots. That goes around your room. Now you can think of your body is full of these. Little robots and those robots are the proteins inside your body that. Get the job done. They do all sorts of tasks about twenty years ago. Twenty five years ago a group of scientists asked a question where do those robots inside. Our body come from turns out our body. Has these little three d. printers churning out those robots. they're call bribes zones but you can think of them just as three d. printer and you feed and instruction sheet into that printer and it spits out a robot so the scientists had this really crazy idea and they said what about if instead of like growing the drug outside in a lab in manufacturing it and injecting it. We just slip them a little piece of paper with the software code. So that the three d. printers inside our body generate their own vaccines and that's what the m. are a drug is an example of you know i mean this is vaccine development at a speed that no one's ever seen before combined with of course ongoing medical breakthroughs that keep happening. What is all of this suggests for the next pandemic. i think it's incredibly encouraging amarna fragile. So you need to code it and something that will protect. And that's actually why it took so many years to develop because just getting that protective coating right. It's very

The tech behind the search for a COVID-19 vaccine

"This week on marketplace tech, we're reporting on the innovations that will help us transition to a post pandemic feature, a lot of hopes are pinned on a vaccine for covid nineteen, and there are in fact, a lot of efforts on that front. Some combined the old ways of making vaccines with new techniques, suppose instead of manufacturing all these viruses are protein, fragments or dead viruses and using that as a vaccine. Suppose we skip that step. Safi call is a biotech investor and author. He's describing technique for vaccine development that was invented a decade ago and just take the code for making that fragment. And give it to the body's cells. So instead of having a giant lab and a warehouse, cranking out these proteins that we then put into lots of vials and deliver billions of doses around the world. Your own cells will be the manufacturing plant while this technique is super promising, it hasn't yet lead to a successful vaccine any disease mainly because there's a huge shortage of funding, the problem is there hasn't been enough incentive to work in infectious disease. SARS cove one which came out eighteen years ago. The first sort of version of the SARS virus, eighty percent genetically identical to the current SARS Cov virus. We had started some promising work in promising drugs and promising vaccines against that first SARS. Virus. Some of which may have been enormously helpful these days there is plenty of incentive to both cure and treat covid nineteen, because says even by the time we get a vaccine, we might have much better success at preventing deaths from the virus like HIV. There's no vaccine, but drug development has turned the virus from a fatal condition to a chronic one. Every month we get more data wet drug works, and it's not just the exciting stuff of Heya scientists in the lab came up with this awesome new molecule that nobody ever saw before and radicals the virus on first contact. That's not how it works. Sometimes it's like well a pretty boring old drug. That none of us thought mattered very much. Actually works or the right combination by itself. It's okay, but if you combine a and B, it's really amazing. Those are kind of the they. They don't make sexy headlines. But they're really important. So despite all the very bad headlines, because said he's feeling positive is just the number of shots on goal that we have and for most diseases. Maybe. You develop five drugs or ten drugs in clinical trials. Today we have over three hundred treatments in development for covert of US working in
