Think of judging picture of human here isn't. So, couple of last questions one, do you have one and sure you have a million but one? Specific memory of him that gives you comfort and kind of go back to some of the moment that you remember of him. Yes. First Time. That I had a baby and I saw him. I was still in bed and she fast. TRIP, and so he would. Come. Out and into our room I a study. And there was a rocking chair in there and he took the baby out of the CRIB and his arms and I walked in to the room and the tears were running down my face because I heard him telling her what they were. GonNa do as she grew up and how he was going to take care of her and how he and her mommy. Loved. Her and it was such a beautiful thing that I thought I know right now that he's going to be a wonderful father because he had her in his arms rocking back to sleep and he was telling her these beautiful stories about how they go fishing together and how they would do snap together and how their mommy and daddy loved her and you know and so.

When we went up he was the one sitting there at the alter and took my hand and got me to the. Veil. and. That's very special using it. My Dad. Does that make you? I can tell you getting ulterior? Time. Geneva really liked me. Having need to know this listeners so this is a story that comes up over and over again, the Geneva who is the mother of Jodi. Sitting here really liked bell and which and. His mom my mom were good friends to that's beautiful. That's special. Yeah. That would a loving what am I gonNA get okay. So I need one moment from you that stands out in your mind I'm sure there's a zillion to hear callous moments but one that stands out that you remember her in that just endeared her that would you go back to sometimes think about how beautiful that on for I'll give you two professionally when I became President University of Idaho. And man she was first lady the I. Saw, her I was with a group of people out on the wall and I saw her commodity, my office across the grass and I I i. I almost teared up. There was a sophomore and I I think that often. Supported and so well and should. Beautiful Jars so beautiful. Okay. You said you had to. So what's the one more maybe isn't mother moment in her mothering or a moment in well, if you today or tomorrow whenever the Hayes could you watch the relationship there litter kids it's an unbelievable. You are very close to your. And they get a real kick out of it when she gets after me. Grandson. Scrape. So that's hot. It is not the answer that. The other thing is this the. Mormon me I mean he was a good good good kid to raise. Anna tremendous person professionally and all he did. Yeah and. That that helps helps our relationship to see that happen. Interesting. I never really thought about that having kids that are just barely while barely, but they've been out of this Robin I guess I guess that would be true because the opposite is true if you have a child that struggling that's hard on everybody and if you have a child that's doing well, that just increases the amount that you have between he was he was. and. I'm trying to remember. For him, he's. Still, a straighter that one hopes straighter. Okay. Last question give it some thought. Three qualities that you if you if you're a situation where someone had never met your wife and they said, can you please tell us about her? Can you give us three attributes that she has? So we can know we're better and then the same thing. Three attributes about him that would describe so three words, three words, and you can describe those words if you want three words that sum up. Your spouse. You WanNa. Go three words at some of them. It was very good looking. He was had ambitions that I knew he was working at and was going to achieve because he had that kind of personality is ambitious and he was a wonderful has been in father. He was a wonderful father. Yeah, I love. So you've got a love that. So he had a lot of. disallow goodness that made all possible. Yeah and you recognize that you know it's interesting while you're still thinking. When I met your son. I remember thinking. Okay so this is sorry listeners. This is a little bit of LDS doctrine but. If you're not familiar with with the spirituality national johnny this. But I I knew that the doctrine was you can't go to the. Celestial kingdom the highest degree without a spouse that's the doctrine. But I remember when I met your son, I thought way if anybody could could bend that rule but he can sneak it alone. It would be him because I felt like he had a solid spine of like a steel spine of integrity like that guy was going to be loyal. All, the boy scout things thrifty. True..

You do you do how would you describe your personalities in relationship to each other in other words? What is it about him? That completes you and what is it about her that completes you. Who wants to go ahead? Yeah, it was. Kind of difficult for me at first because timeless really couple more years ahead of me in school and. University I was came from a family that my parents had were both eighth grade graduates. Wow. And you know not that kind of education and I decided I was going to be educated and so I went. Right to college from high school and and It was. But it was was difficult for me at first and to be hostess to the President of the university. Yeah. That was a whole new experience in my life. So 'cause. Farm family you know at income from family that had had parties of any kind right saying. That boost over the. That was definitely Iowa.

That's the fine she was she was very good at it. And, I would I would. Be going on a trip when I? When I got up on higher levels of versity. I would be taking trips to Washington DC and so forth and anytime I would leave I would go to her school that day and kiss goodbye and. One Little Guy.

So I was introduced out today, we have Tom Bell down here from the President's office. He's jody bells husband. Okay. We've had we've had. We've had an awesome. Well, what knows to is that you are you tend to be more of an extrovert and you Jodi tend to be more a little bit more than the introverted side. Is that correct a little bit probably? Your a little more of an extrovert and she's more of introvert, and so I think she can be anything. Hang. Israel. I see her take on people. Yeah. Strong Spanish. Yeah. No, she's no you can't just walk all over this, but she is she does tend to enjoy maybe a little bit of a quieter life you're little more gregarious but together, that is so beautiful.

As Skymiles Lose Relevance, Credit Card Companies Struggle to Spur Spending
"Remember vacations. Not, so long ago. The idea of getaway was enough to persuade customers to pledge loyalty to one credit card or another spend enough. They'd say in your credit card points could earn you a flight to a tropical beach, a posh hotel stay or an upgrade to a luxury class of travel. But Americans aren't hopping on planes very much these days and right now many countries won't even allow you as travelers to visit. So credit card companies are scrambling to come up with new relevant perks that will keep customers happy and justify any hefty annual fees. That might take some work while customers have been more satisfied with financial services like retail banking and mortgage lenders. Overall during the pandemic credit card satisfaction fell that's according to Jd power and associates a recent survey by consumer finance website value. Penguin found that more than forty percent of rewards. Cardholders surveyed have closed a credit card since the pandemic began another third considered it to prove their value to customers.

Long Haul Trucking Means Better Prices For Consumers, But Drivers Suffer Low Wages
"The stuff that you buy in stores, close food electronics almost all of it got there on a truck long haul trucking is getting cheaper and that's good for consumers. It means stuff is cheaper, but it's not so good for truck drivers because this is happening at their expense. Here's Keith Romer from planet money. In two thousand, seventeen Kimberly Sikorski decided she was going to become a trucker she called Prime Inc. no relation to Amazon prime because they offered free training prime seemed eager to have her literally I think I called on Thursday night and they were ready to buy me a greyhound ticket for Sunday to start on Monday Sikorsky took classes and drove with a trainer for three months. But before she could go out on her own, she had a choice to make your given the option to either be accompanied driver or a lease operator option one she's a regular old. Employees. Paid based on how many miles she drives option to. She gets to be her own boss. She'd have to lease a truck through prime but then after expenses she would share of whatever her loads brought in in the form of a weekly check from prime. They say if you're not stupid and you're not lazy then you make a lot more money being released operator and you're Kinda dumb if you pass that up. So Secorski chose option to she picked out her truck finance through prime a brand new blue freightliner that she named Sapphire. Then she hit the road. But when she started receiving her weekly checks, something didn't seem right a lot of times when I'm expecting to see a check for a couple of thousand dollars, I'm getting a bill for like two hundred dollars or five hundred dollars or fifteen hundred dollars a bill before Secorski got her cut prime deducted truck payment's insurance equipment cost and primes percentage as a broker also for an independent contractor it sure felt like she worked for prime. So they say that you're not their employees but you're. Completely bound to them. You're not allowed to take loads from anyone else. You're not allowed to ask for different loads than what they're giving you. Secorski works seventy hour weeks for six months at the end of it. She had earned just nine thousand dollars. It got to the point where I would be sitting in my truck crying because I'd be afraid to buy a hotdog when it gets to the point of your electricity being shut off and your grocery bill not being able to be paid. There has to be something better finally she quit. Steve Sally a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania specializes in the industry. He says that four higher long haul trucking has become a commodity and customers only really care about price. The way that the market has been constructed requires that you compete on the cost of labor getting Sikorsky to lease a truck from prime and then work as an independent contractor. That's a standard part of the business model for a lot of trucking companies. Now, like having a, you know a truck for free an paying the driver less than you would have to pay an employee. Some of those drivers though have started to push back in recent years there's been a wave of class actions lawsuits against some of the. Biggest long-haul companies in July Kimberly Sikorsky's old company prime settled a lawsuit in which it was accused of Miss classifying its employees and violating minimum wage laws. Prime did not admit wrongdoing as part of its settlement and they declined to be interviewed for this story. But in an emailed statement, a lawyer for prime wrote quote, we have thousands of highly successful independent contractors and company drivers who thrive within our business model. The class action that was settled is completely unrelated to Miss Sikorsky's allegations. The litigation was seemingly endless and was best resolved as part of that settlement forty thousand former drivers for prime are eligible for a share of twenty, eight, million dollars, which means it's like seven hundred dollars a person. Does that seem like enough? No Honestly It's kind of laughable. Kimberly Sikorski is driving for a different company now and this time she's an employee Keith Romer NPR news.
Women, Agency, & Pleasure
"I'm sure by now you've seen and heard the news release from Cardi B. in May called wop. Well, of course, everybody in their Mama has an opinion about this own. So we had to chat about what it all means and Dr Lex Brown James is back with us to join the conversation. Dr lex is an Amazon bestselling author of these are my is this is my nose. This is my vulva. These are my toes and is a licensed marriage and family therapist in a certifies sexuality educator supervisor. When not in therapy she contracts with organizations regarding reproductive justice and accessible comprehensive. In Anti Oppressive Sexuality Education. Dr Lexin I, chatted about the stereotypes that are often invoked in commentary about black. Women's sexuality. The. Importance of agency in sexual liberation. How. Respectability politics are used to shame black women and how we can unpack our own shame around sexuality to encourage healthier attitude towards sexuality for our children. If anything resumes with you all join this episode. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. TB In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us again today Dr Legs. Thank you for having back I. Love it here. We, are always happy to have you back. I really use you slide into my deals like, Hey, you know we talk about this. You created the perfect platform. So, tell me likes what was your initial reaction to the visuals as well as audio. In my chest, my reactions were. Still. Got It. That's what I thought initially like I could drop down get back up and I didn't out nor did I di- I was really proud of myself. Out of that. And it was so free nervous. The nineties Misao Josiah, I, grew up in Atlanta I grew up in college park. So here in Franks key on the radio was normal and regular everyone was like look at this homage homage and that was unexpected and then all the commentary and it's all based on this over sexualization of women and I was like, okay let's see the skull but everybody only defaulted to the over sexualization of the black woman based on this. Stereotype. The stereotype is the idea that. Lack, women typically our class figured lighter skin and with some tape of nine kinky hair, the the the Mulatto type woman is sexually overt and think a Karma Jones right. So Carmen in that movie would be the idea of a jazz about but people forget the conversation where. Black women and their relation also centralized as mammy. So fat dark skinned black women who have kinky hair who are considered not necessarily sexual, right? Because they're not the Jacksonville and yet they reproduce and take care of children. They are the form other four People Gov as the Welfare Queen, they're having tax they're producing but certainly seen as very sexual, and then there's also the Sapphire and the Sapphire is comes from and Andy rate in it's considered that kind of ball buster type woman who is like all well, you can't handle me and. Attitudinal and maybe like a clair huxtable, I will tell you when we will be together in this way and then there's the superwoman. So the Black Superwoman, this idea that women can make a dollar out of fifteen cents, take your communities in their children and their partners and their job and every. Old In an amazing and they're never exhausted or tired always pleasant attitude and the considered asexual right because there are so strong and they don't even need sex and nobody's willing to really them because they don't need have this. Physical pleasure or satisfaction lives. All of these other stereotypes? The only one that people went to focus on was the jets as I pigeonholing. So what do you think that is do you think that people aren't even aware of all these other stereotypes? Be Aware but I don't think that their sexuality is as amped up and I think that a black woman in charge of her own sexual pleasure is scary for some folks. We have a lot of shame I was personally told as a child to call maybe China pocketbook Zionist, governor. Yeah You keep your pocketbook close and you keep it off the floor. Right those are the two things you learned and I was like. That's interesting. Why would it ever be on the floor but the idea that if you had his own sexual pleasure, your type of Ho, your some type of one time and. over-centralised homequote not wifey material right and so I don't think the other ones get as much play because they are somewhat more acceptable.
Hagia Sophia: Pope 'pained' as Istanbul museum reverts to mosque
"Says he's deeply pained over the decision by Turkey to change in the status of Hadiya Sapphire, originally an Istanbul Christian cathedral from a museum to a mosque. In a brief improvised remark. Francis, speaking from his studio window overlooking ST Peter's Square, noted that the Catholic Church marked Sunday as the international day of the sea. Then he said, Madam apart sample on the sea brings my thought Tio East amble. I'm thinking of saints afire, and I'm deeply pained, Francis said. No more. It was clearly referring to the move by Turkey to formally convert the monumental building back into a mosque. The colossal cathedral was turned into a mosque after the Ottomans conquered the city in 14 53 while the secular government in 1934 decided to make it a museum. I'm
Spacecraft Fire Safety Experiments (Saffire) established to investigate fire in space
"Understanding. How fire behaves in microgravity, and how different materials will burn in space is extremely important for future exploration missions. Sapphire is a series of spacecraft fire safety experiments designed to investigate flame, growth and material flammability in space. Here's Gary Rough Sapphire. Project Manager at Nasr's Glenn Research Center one of the. The things that is very interesting about fire safety research is where we learn about how things burn. We modeled that into some very complex computational models, and each of those models then gets reactions. Better gets the our prediction better well, those are the same kinds of models that can be used in modeling a house fire. The results of the Sapphire Research, not only inform. How to deal with fire. The models are also used to train firefighters in your community.

Coronavirus antibody testing, explained
"Antibodies. What exactly are these? And how are they different from things and people may have heard of like convalescent plasma? Yes so convalescent. Plasma is the idea that you had the disease he recovered. And you can pull the plasma out of someone that has a commissioner of antibodies. And then give that to someone else. the monoclonal idea is select the best antibodies out of that commission. Or you can make those antibodies in mice or you can make them synthetically. Monoclonal means one clone one thing. We're going to just make a bunch of it and give it to people. People typically just an antibody is a thing. Well you know more so than I scream. Store has ice cream you know there are lots of flavors. Antibodies and and some are far more effective than others and some can even cause harm. You have to be careful right and this is not like a vaccine. Where you're you're actually injecting a person with a piece of a virus or the virus killed and then the body is producing antibodies. Right so whatta vaccines doing. Is it's artificially teaching your immune system how to make an immune response including antibodies. With a vaccine you get the vaccine. Your body then knows how to make the antibodies and other immune warriors with the monoclonal antibody treatment. You have to keep getting it. You can use it either as a preventive like a vaccine or as a treatment. If you're going to use it as either you have to keep getting it because it wears off right. How do you administer monoclonal? Antibodies to a person for treatment. You have to do it. Iv IV DRIP for preventive. Where you would get it before you got the disease you can do it. As an intramuscular injection has been used to treat people for other infections or other disorders. There's a huge industry of monoclonal. Antibodies for cancer and for Autoimmune Diseases. But there are very few monoclonal antibodies that have made it to market for infectious diseases. The rarely used to of Mer for anthrax for example. Which just isn't a big problem. Right and another one that's on the market is for HIV infected. Who FAIL ALL DRUGS? And then there's one other on the market for respiratory virus for a certain subset of infants but that's it so this is something that's been done and that people have taken but it's not why lease for infection at this point not yet but we're right. On the precipice of an explosion of monoclonal antibodies for infectious diseases. Several have moved very far in clinical trials and we just had this great success story in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with Ebola where everything failed all these drug treatments failed. Convalescent plasma failed but monoclonal. Antibodies two different monoclonal antibody. Preparations worked. Well let's talk about how this is going to be applied to corona virus. Actually before that we should take a little detour to neutralizing antibodies. These seem to be the goal of lot of the research. That's going on. Can you talk a little bit about those? Yeah they're the superstars of antibodies. Basically what neutralizing? Antibodies do is when they latch onto the virus they prevent that virus from infecting a cell. In this case the virus that causes Kovic nineteen has a protein on its surface called spike. And you have a region of spike at the tip that is really and needed for the virus to get into a cell because it binds to a receptor on the cell surface that small and that small region of spike has to hit the receptor just so so the neutralizing antibodies by-in-large target that small region of Spike. You know basically. It's like taking a key. That's heading for a walk and putting chewing gum all over it. So he mentioned what an antibody that is not neutralizing monoclonal antibody. That's not neutralizing would do to prevent infection. Antibodies combined all over spike. They can also bind to the human cell when they bind to the human cell they can tell the immune system to turn on a separate arm of the immune system that brings out T. CELLS. We have a mop-up system of t-cells that can identify infected cells and clear them. And you really want these two things working in concert with each other. There are lot of approaches that you investigated in your story. Lots of researchers going down different has to try to get this treatment working. What are some of the things that they're trying to optimize about the antibodies? There are about fifty. Different efforts underway to make monoclonal start with the simplest thing. Find Somebody who's recovered and then try to pull neutralizing antibodies out of them. And then you can actually optimize their neutralizing antibodies. You can you can mess with that stock of the antibody to give it a longer half life so it lasts longer in the body. Another thing you can do. You can take the spike protein and injected into mice that have human b cells in them and they will produce antibodies. That you can then fish into the pool you've made and find the best ones that are neutralizing whom you can then modify those by making their half-life longer. Lots of fishing going on right lots of fishing going on you can also create a library of antibodies with a completely synthetic system. These are not naturally made an animal. You can then stick your fishing pole in there. I mean you. Basically stick bait into their like spike protein or just the region of the spike protein that the neutralizing antibodies attached to. That's Your Bait. That's your worm. And then the antibody jumps on that you can have two at about that. Both find the spike protein but different parts. See you kind of have the backup. In the case of one of the Abullah monoclonal antibody treatments in Congo. That worked that has three in the cocktail. There's no real limit to how many antibodies you can have. But there is a limit because of cost and manufacturing rights. There's there's one other limit. That's interesting Sarah. That's I mentioned. The spike protein has a small region on it that is where the neutralizing antibody wants to attach. That small region can only handle probably two different. Antibodies don't overlap with each other and as you mentioned there are what fifty different teams chasing this but now there's an organizing force out there. This is a consortium started near near you. Yes so the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has funded Erica Omen Sapphire here in San Diego to try and sort through all the different. Antibodies being made in help prioritize triage with one's look best. These consortium ideas make a lot of sense in practicality. They're often hard to run because not everyone's cooperative. I'M OPTIMISTIC BECAUSE COVA. Nineteen has led to more cooperation than I personally have ever seen in the scientific community that you know these are companies. That are competitive. But they're all pledging to work together so we'll see a lot of what we talked about so far as a mechanism so we know where it should bind. We know how to improve the life span of these antibodies. What about translating these ideas these experiments into the clinic? How optimistic are you? And researchers about this working in people so antiviral drugs are a big ask when it comes to respiratory diseases. We don't have a lot of them that were in fact for viral diseases in general. It's it's tough to make drugs monoclonal. Antibodies hold great promise. We know the structure of spike protein. And how it attached to human cells. We know how to make monoclonal much better than we ever have. Because the technology has improved greatly through and autoimmune diseases and we have some hints from convalescent plasma. That can work if used early enough so I think there's high hope that these monoclonal. Antibodies will prove their worth and the Ebola experience where everything failed other than the monoclonal adds to the enthusiasm I'm GonNa keep picking at this a little bit longer so you mentioned that. Ebola had three monoclonal treatment but that people are aiming more for two in treating corona virus because these are expensive. They're not necessarily easy. To produce is going to be a problem if this does prove to be a really good treatment. Yes or no of first of all in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A second MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY. That worked was a single monoclonal antibody. Okay yeah so it's not necessarily better to have a cocktail It might be better to things like resistance that could build but both of those work the triple Combo and the single against Ebola. Are THEY EXPENSIVE. They have been in the past but the cost has dropped. I've been told tenfold in the past ten years. Just as manufacturing has improved. We also are seeing a rush internationally to provide support for treatments and preventive for Cove. In nineteen and my hunch. Is that if something does work. A lot of money will pour out of wealthy countries. Will there be a problem. Getting these out equitably to poor people and they're also hard to deliver yes inevitably inevitably. It will be a problem and there's also the risk of rich people getting it. I right so I think these issues are very real the bill and Melinda Gates. Foundation's consortium is trying to address this upfront. But these are always sticky. Sarah you know back historically if we look back at what happened with pandemic flu vaccine. They're the rich countries of the world. So will will donate ten percent of our vaccines to the poorer countries. That's not the real solution to the problem. You talk about a race with vaccine so if a vaccine comes to clinics for the antibodies do. Is there any call for them? At that point so the antibodies can be used both as a preventative and as a treatment in theory. Antibodies are going to enter the clinic in June. They probably will have an easier time proving whether they work and are safe than a vaccine so in all likelihood if antibodies are effective they will prove themselves. I necessarily who knows? But that's how it looks to me today and on May first. That's how it looked. Thank you for putting the date in there. Yeah Yeah 'cause you know this is where we're living in corona virus. Dan Our everything is so accelerated. Who knows you know weird? Things happen every day. Now Yeah and it could be that we never have a vaccine

"Grant and Dr sapphire when it comes to working on a vaccine or treatment for a virus can you explain in layman terms well you know why it is so complicated well it's complicated in one sense because it's an entirely new virus and so you need to understand how the new virus operates you need to develop entirely new task for the new tests need to have ways of amplifying objected that virus and not from related common cold virus and it has need Havel antibodies and molecules in hand to detect whether you have that virus and on a related matter so in some sense you got to start with a lot of new material yes okay so when it comes to new material how do we get that new material since this is such a license it's it you know the novel coronavirus how do we get information since it's so new well there's two different kinds of tests there's a test to detect if they had the presence of the virus or viral genetic material right now next P. C. R. there's another kind of tested whether you've had the virus before and that's an antibody test when you have been exposed to infected with some virus your own immune system makes antibodies in either really precise molecules whose job is to detect and inactivate viral infection until somebody that has antibodies that's the trees that they had something or been exposed to something before if you want to know if someone's disease was called in nineteen you look and see if they had antibodies against if you want to track the movement of the virus around the country around the world you could see who has antibodies if you want to count the prevalence of the virus in the population including all the people that never got sick or never showed up to the clinic you can look for the presence of antibodies so they're two different kinds of tests to see if somebody has a virus right now or somebody had the virus before someone I'm so sorry it's I was just curious you know we in in terms of tracking the virus and following it and seeing where it's been and where it's going is set at ten it seems like testing for antibodies would almost be as as important if not more important than testing for an actual infection well an immediate public health sense to stop an outbreak you needed to find the people that are actively infected and isolate them from exposing others so this PCR test to find out where the virus is right now are critical for slowing spread later information have you been exposed might you be a noon where has the virus than before that's antibody they're both useful but they're useful in different ways all right now you've got something called a fast grants what is that and how far is a hundred thousand dollars go for research eight hundred thousand dollars buys a piece of equipment etcetera thank you Peter Sweeney and fellow at the gates foundation asked me to head up a consortium to compare everyone's therapeutic antibodies and figure out which are the ones that would be put in enough for them to mobilize for treatment in low and middle income countries so these antibody molecules the trimming system makes are so powerful it detecting and fighting an infection that people who have survived that have them in the plasma can donate them to treat others and that could be old school way of just the plasma comes out and in and the whole plasma treat somebody or you can look in that plaza and you can look at the millions and millions of possible antibodies that person man to find the very best two or three and mobilize those as a very potent drug an antibody drugs now treat cancer and autoimmune disease and lots of other infectious diseases the question is how do you find the ones that are the most effective among the quintillion possible ones and lots of different companies universities each mobilizing their own therapies so I'm in my international consortium and heading up we're comparing the different antibody therapy side by side to figure out which are most effective what makes the most effective and which are the ones that we think we should be mobilizing when we saw the scale and size of what we would need to do we realize we're just gonna need to make a whole lot more material in the lab and so the faster it gave us money within a week to buy a set of incubators allow us to scale up capacity and the really nice thing about that is it's going to help us in this outbreak and then it becomes a permanent piece of lab infrastructure right could help the next Africans could help the other ten diseases that we study yes Dr Erica ollmann sapphire from the La Jolla institute for immunology I thank you so much for making the very complicated very understandable you know to the layman because it is so hard to kind of follow why this has why this disease has spread the way it has and why it's so difficult to treat so thank you for that my pleasure all right how terrorists could be hurting those on the front lines of this pandemic we'll have a live report coming up at eight forty stories training in San.
Decoding the Galaxy S20's different 5G combinations
"We were going to buy a Samsung Galaxy S. Twenty to tap into one of those new fangled five gene networks. There are a lot of factors to consider. And I've got ally Blumenthal here to lay out all of your five G. Options and there are a lot so let's just kind of break it down simply first before we even get to the networks. Let's talk about the phones right. We've got how many phones so the s twenty three main phones. We have twenty s twenty plus minutes. Twenty ultra all three are on all four current major carriers. We'll say current and they all have five G. correct and five default so that at least that makes things simple now where we get a little bit more complicated is when you look at how each phone acts on each carrier right. That's where things get more complicated. Yes and even before even there. The S Twenty is different than the twenty plus an ultra. The if you want all of five millimeter wave plus the mid band plus a low band to be the most future proof that can be an five G. You gotta get the plus. They're older guys. You get just the regular S. Twenty on T. mobile or sprint. You won't have millimeter. Wave so just a little wrinkle. And let's let's break that down for our listeners. Interviewers what does that mean when you've got all those different bands I know we've talked about this before but let's break it down again. Like what does that mean that you can get all these bands versus having just you know the mid and low bands right. So is the missing piece. And that's what Verizon's been touting very heavily that is the speeds that are super fast right. These are the gigabit plus speeds are. You'll find a handful so he blocks. It doesn't work really great door. Range is not that great range is not that great but there are a whole host of other issues that we've encountered over the last year testing this type of new service but it does have the best thorough. Put that you'll find on these devices when it comes to low ben and Ben they all support it and if you're on T. mobile sprint. That means you should be able to work assuming this merger. That's I guess. Nearing the final stages nearing. Yeah Fair. Yeah sh if that when that goes through that device will work with sprint mid band spectrum. T. Mobile's low band spectrum released. It should in theory at least on. T. Mobile's right. Now is sort of the optimal combination. I think that's combination. You're seeing for one. The folks around the world are largely using using that mid band spectrum. Which is the sweet spot right now because this guy a good compromise between range and speed right. It's faster than your normal four G. Network but the rangers not as crazy short as it is on right. Exa- covers exact way to describe it. It's the middle yet whereas low band has great range but the speeds are basically the same as a good four g connection if you get high frequency millimeter wave yet. It's super fast. But no range mid ben gets you both get you some decent speed improvements while allowing you to use your phone indoors or outside or wherever you want to use it with a speed boost so get in that T. mobile and sprint are looking to really focus on on millimeter amid band and Logan and the millimeter wave thing. They have some bits of it. I mean is it worth it to buy an ultra to get the access to potential millimeter way spectrum? We don't necessarily the ultra. You could buy blow slides and if you're a verizon and want the twenty there'll be a special version is rising five. G. Right now is just meter wave. There will be special version of the twenty. That works with millimeter. Wave for Verizon Gotcha zoom ably work with Logan amid Bedouin verizon eventually rolls out five G. across other bands which it has said. It will do this year so we don't know when exactly that will happen but we know that's coming this year no work with that Astra buying the ultra. We actually have the ultra here. And Plus The plus. Or WHAT'S UP? Right here we go. These are big phones like a face right now. Particularly the ultra. Which was this is the next year face. It is here we go. Let's monsters no see my face. So let's let's do this block. And then she got the the camera models and it's thick is a thick phone and that is to accommodate largely the five thousand million powered battery. Giant batteries. Saint Cameras Saint Cameras. We'll all the different radios ride so and granted. The radios are here as well. I think it's more of the cameras or anything else. This has the hundred. Xp Soon which you could see on the bottom that big sensors either way. If you're not a fan of things popping out of the back of your phone this is GonNa drive you crazy. Just put flat down on here. It does not lie flat at all. Sir. So let's theory. This thing is It's hard to describe. But it's just really thick Camera module all right speaking of the the ultra. We had chance to actually test the durability of the Galaxy Twenty Ultra Withdraw Test. It did not fare well. Yep So. That's our own Vanessa. She dropped the phone a couple of times and actually after the very first drop at three feet or basically pocket height cracked yet. That was kind of disheartening. You're spending fourteen drives up to this phone costs right. The beautiful phone all covered in glass everywhere will glass six. I believe really lasts sick. And this is the only one with gorilla glass six on both front and back but obviously that didn't that didn't help because there's there's a screen protector there. She's peeling off. It didn't really help a lot with the edges. She kept dropping yet. I think she dropped it one more time at three feet crack some more and then she raised six feet twice. Yeah you'RE GONNA WANNA case on these things. I was impressed that the cameras yes surprisingly things dying out and you would think that. Take the brunt of the impact. It actually was the one that like what stood all the damage. Everything was on it. I just boggles the mind. It doesn't make any sense but you know credit. The Samsung there may be put that That a glass eye on every other part of some sort of experimental gorilla glass seven. We we don't know or sapphires. Something else that they're doing. Well Yeah it could have been Sapphire. That would explain the giant price tag on this thing. Well Sapphire for cameras. Just an uncommon. Right right I think apple does that fertile. Yes but I'm wondering if it's over the lands of overdose entire module right. I don't have that would not costly. Yes that is a. I mean you could just look at it. It's a giant. Yes there's the St. You can't see it here. That got space boot. Zum written here the hundred zoom which I was talking to someone when I mentioned this feature. They immediately reacted. Oh it's a creeper camera cool so there you go yeah. The quality of zooming with that also is a little. It's not great but yeah that definitely is one interesting way. You're immediately jumped to. That's the case for. It wasn't my friend. Who's just a random person and I was asking too because I talked to people reporters do

Pick guys how are you caring? I'm absolutely blessed than how he favor. Thank you yes as dating so today. We're doing wind down with Jennifer Aniston and Sean from the circle in and at a couple of other people but yeah wow all the great lesson awesome So we're recording this a few weeks after the last episode dropped as it's been almost a month probably right and yeah about a month and a couple of days how has your re entry back into normal life than it has been a a whirlwind. That's what I'd say Living IN NEW YORK. I don't I'm GONNA keep saying. I don't think that Netflix. Expect this show to be as big as as it is Honestly it's it's been a whirlwind. Just living in the in having to relive the circle almost everyday like every time I look at my house or from colleagues e from from the market. It's always like you Mercedes from because I didn't expect it but I'm as a blessing is it's really cool. I've met some really cool because of its audiences that's great. Can you talk us through where you were in life? And what was going on Wednesday when the show came along When I got the call from the producers that was going to be that was going to cast it for this show another figuring it was when I got the call. I was having a really a walking away from my desk for the record and when I answered the phone the land was highly highly when you see this but she was just like. Hey Karen and I was like a yeah so unfamiliar dislike. She's like Italian Food Circle. Who Are you? And she was like going into compensation. I'm just like who what and when I finally like Is starting to make sense of it was I was floored omitting the like it was a moment of like. Oh Shit this is really going to happen and From that that one phone call it was everything was like a role constantly. Everything was gone with a full speed ahead and it was amazing. It was really amazing. So you get that call. And they're like you`re. You're starting very soon prepared to pack up and pretty much. Yeah this is Lee went to La in which a couple other places and then when it was time to film it was one of those things where like it was like. This is really happening. Like this. Is this no more Auditioning there's no more green screen work. There's no more. Let's see what happened. Insist billy impact and cry. There was this fateful after that it was the right head on West Go. How long was the process? how long were you filming overall The process is three weeks. We did about a month filming and I personally found for about two and a half weeks. I just have some logistic question. I'm curious about watching that. You can never find out from watching the show which is how when you're in this building. How do they ensure that you never cross paths with each other? You're using the same Jacuzzi. You're using the same Jim So it's a process Everything is scheduled to tea. And we all have Runner chaperones that escorted a close anywhere. We have to go in the building so like to go to Jacuzzi or everyone will be some air on a balcony orpheus when I wanna get out our own apartments so you need to go crazy. Anna same foils for that long but we want to do something it was simply be like. We'd say it out loud to the producer's like hey I get a break and someone will literally come and get us. We get set him headset. Microphone headset and some on blacked out goggles and he would literally walk. Us literally. Walk US hand by hand to another room so that we could just unwind and get a a new sense of scenery so It was really about timing. It was always about timing This is is going to be in a hallway. This person and it was something that they only they could hear so like. Hey we're GONNA take over here and they will probably reply like hey okay. We're we're GONNA take this person over here so that we would never have to worry about finding each other causing pass and we couldn't do anything anyways right during its overall. It was really though it sounds like actual torture. Yeah it sounds like what would that tell you all the time? It was like being a fancy Martha Stewart Rehab. The people the stat the runners everyone was extremely polite and it was a thing of. They knew that we weren't familiar. We were strangers and they really handed us with care and I like to call it. The White Glove Treatment It wasn't like I say we didn't have That wasn't are each. Where would be water? Red Bull the M. And no matter what it was that he could ask for. They will always there and that was going to do that. Made the process so much easier. So you're seeing runners in real life honorable regular basis person that we saw is yes. It's been runners the producers. We never got to meet the players until the finale. And even a finale each other and San Francisco come out individually like the introductions so everything was very hush hush but it was an overall The finale meaning that they made it so that we were all very comfortable. There wasn't any like Oh I hate you. Walk me any animosity. There was no. Ill will towards each other. Was It really a calm? Cats spread when we have Karen. What else are you watching? Now what are you what we are? We have to to the circle. What are you addicted to now? I was always a bit Netflix. Buff prior to this right now. I am watching. Sabrina is that what is called. The the the adventures of Serena and I finished that Monday so I started watching this thing called Luna Luna something like Luna pier a Luna peanuts that I watched the weird stuff on. I try not to watch what everyone else is watching it variety. I haven't seen anything quite like our show yet on Netflix. Because that's that's what also makes us stand up and the divers in our cast. It's not like a north thanks to like friends or Jersey Shore. But it's not like we're not a typical guests we would never see. You wouldn't expect to St US call in one space from and I love that about our show. I love that about on Netflix. For casting was such diversity as far as them personalities Race Gender. And just overall do you remember. Were you like a reality? Watcher before the circle. No and that's what's so crazy. I hadn't even thought with circle prior to going on this article go. Yeah realize that it was a British show before before the US exactly. I don't know if Ninja Warriors considered reality. Tv that what? I need to see okay.

"My good friend Eliza Edwards she she she literally lives down the street for me. She lives out and she goes to L. A. When she needs to take your business in flies home. So that's GonNa be the Chris move. Well I don't know look I believe the whole world is my home. I'm not afraid to go anywhere. I mean I was just in Europe right. I'll go anywhere for me wherever God needs me to be. I'm going to be there. I love it. What were you doing in life and in work win? Circle came along. Oh my God I tell everybody. My life has been like a modern day forrest. Gump story Before the circle I had made an appearance on illicit Edwards is reality. Show dancing queen. 'cause meet her. Actually friends were real friends and so she was like bits. I need you to be on my show. I said come on with honey before dancing queen. I was a pop culture news reporter on a morning. Syndicated morning show news show called eye opener from the CW it was like the CW version of Good Morning America. Yeah something like that. Now's the pop culture guy. They discovered me on Youtube and I went in for the audition one morning. They're like Chris. Would you be interested in doing? Tbs It's short. What went in for the audition. It was supposed to be a one time game by the time I went. Did my broadcast the next day. the producer's like would you be interested in doing it for the rest of the year? I said come all wait at hunting so I did it for the rest of the year and at one point Some of the main anchors were gone on vacation or something and I hosted the May News on the main news. Desk like Robin Roberts by John. Go to school for communications or broadcast is just the gift. I don't yeah. So how long have you been out of the out of the apartment slash jail cell the circle we go one? That's been a few months. We filmed this last year. I don't give away too much of the magic but I'm sure it's already out there but yeah we filmed last year and then came home. It was the biggest secret on all of our minds. We couldn't tell nobody anything so believe it or not when he came out the commercial little trailer. It's like everybody went nuts. Absolutely meds was really cool. And it's still cool to see the reaction right now for people who are just bumping into the show just now because that's the nature of Netflix. Is that people can discover it for years to come. Oh yeah they are still keep getting messages from all different parts of the world What I did on the show just being myself honestly Is Resonating with a lot of people. The Ho God message in all of that and it's inspiring to see how it's touching folks in different ways. I just had a guy right me literally like before this Telling me that it has shaken him to the core his inner compass. He said that he wished he had not wasted forty years of his life. You know being afraid of who? He was coming out being so openly. I believe in God shook him away like I could do that too. I'm like yes you could totally believe in God and God makes no mistakes. He doesn't start with us. You know people limit God's Power God is beyond our imagination. How powerful is so for people with our small minded thinking? Oh God hates gay people's I don't know maybe do not limit his power. God's love is so big you can't even begin to imagine it you know. What is your spiritual practice look like do you? What kind of church do you attend? Do ATTEND CHURCH. I was raised Catholic yet That that didn't register in my mind. You know when a child and you go to church. You're not even listening. You're so bored. You want to get out of there and so when I was fourteen I fell into a horrible rabbit hole. Depression and anxiety because I was being bullied so badly by grown asked adults not kids. My Life in school was fabulous grown ass adults because I would take the subway and the bus to school. My school wasn't downtown. Dallas so I had to take you know the public transportation to get there and every fucking can. We cuss on the jump story absolutely okay. I'm sorry I thought I'd ask before I keep going People would touch me inappropriately. They'd be doing. I'm GonNa beat this motherfuckers ass stuff like that. They'd follow me. I'd get on the bus start laughing and when you're fourteen. I had just come out of the closet. You're not ready for that kind of bullshit to come your way you know. And so it took a really bad toll on my mind and Start sweating at the bus stop and go one day at decided to come home. I was going to end my life. Honey it was so terrified. I say you know what this is it for me because when you're fourteen and you're having horrible negative thoughts a you haven't really gone to shrink and I did try to go see in the street in our advice. Was you need to grow up? That's all she told me but for the majority fourteen year olds out there. That don't go see the shrink You don't know how to handle that. You don't know about editing your thoughts and all that kind of stuff and so the day at that was going to end my life There was a little book on my bed and I was like what the fuck is that. When I opened the book the first few words spoke to me like ooh. And that's what introduced me to God. Bless arts it is called. I don't remember the exact words but the book is called God is in the small stuff in it all matters. I hope that's the name I have the book over there in my room But it started introducing me to that thing that we call God and how it works. Oh honey I I myself. Deeply into that book ban. God I didn't take my life but since fourteen I've been practicing in reading it in applying it and it is so real young. I mean I went from suicidal depressed to this all my God about five years ago I really got into it even more even more and so it really really works. There is hope out there and and finding God honey you know. I told the kids if your way hasn't worked and that she ain't working for you try another way boot. Give it a chance. You Ain't got nothing to lose anything. You're gonNA gain what real life should feel like. It feels amazing in now and you were out at fourteen. I came out at fourteen. I had the biggest crush on my best friend Oscar. We're still friends to this day. He had already come out of the closet he was out about and I the finest guy ever and so one day I was at his party and I just. I didn't WanNa live this lie. No more I saw how happy his life was being out his friend group and so my dad picked me up from that party in my dad's like what are you doing. Look at all this. You know gay stuff going on. My Dad was a different guy mcbain. He's changed since then but I told my dad you know what I'm fucking games and that's how I came out. I just I kicked out and I never went back in and then right up to that started wearing makeup and I stopped ever since. I'm still beating the SMUG I'm still turning it out and my dad. I mean bless his heart you know I didn't understand in but now I do now that I'm a grown ass man. My Dad came from a little town in Durango Mexico population. Maybe A THOUSAND PEOPLE DONKEYS PIGS. Adobe houses no poverty poverty to the Max so gain is all. That was totally you know. He couldn't wrap his head around but now he'll give me makeup tips of my makeup of fucked up all the headphones like man. We three thick theon that stay long way so yeah I want to get back to religion briefly. Like what does trying. God's way mean in your life like what if someone's like yeah? I WANNA try. What's your interest point? Oh my God I would say it. Ready honey buckle up the best you're ever GONNA do for yourself. What God does is he gets rid of you and replaces the you with him. And so the whole Bible was literally. It's IT'S A it's a world view. It's a way of thinking in every situation every scenario and so the mind the human mind us without God is a lot of pressure. You know the I what can I do? Creates anxiety creates pry? Think about the middle letter innings. Eddie I pride I any time. They've what am I GONNA do? Man you start losing it. The whole world is on your shoulders but when you start reading the Bible it's no what am I gonNA do. It's what's he going to do and we know God can do all things so you get out of your head. He gets you out of the few and now you lean on him for everything in Your Life. There's a Bible verses says it's no longer either live but Christ lives through me so it let's go the ego let's go to the U. And now it's almost like your puppet in. God is guiding you. God is guiding you. Oh honey everything's GonNa be Great. The journey is going to be a huge president. Every moment is a gift and you get out of the head space of anxiety and fear and pride in control. Honey relinquish that boosted let God being contrived rather God being controlled in my bullshit. You know 'cause he can make everything good. There is actually a Bible verse. It says all things work out well for those who believe at all times. Can you imagine living like that? You can walk into any room. Nobody intimidates you. You Ain't scared of Shit because you know it's not you. It's God working through you in. He ain't scared of nobody a and that's why on the show. I said it's more than competence. It's called God. It's bigger than that. Wow I'm just saying that in. I'm just sitting absorbing Chris. Do you share your spiritual practice with other. Is there a church involved as their house? Richard by myself when no one's there I like to pray and talk to God by myself in his house bit my church if I even had it sir. My church is the world honey. You know if you'RE GOING TO CHURCH. Those people already know the message. The people out in the world don't so many people have told me Christie Nubia pre-start said. No nobody cuss too much and I love to party. I said but I can go out into the world and spread the good news in my way in in a way that no one has before and look it's on. It's it's almost happening in a way. I am a normal person. I love to party. I cuss a lot but I don't cuss to hurt people's feelings. I like to cuss to you. Know Make bitches lab. It's fun to say the word Fuck Shit. You know she'll good. It does humid to an and look. I mean sometimes you know I fall into the human trap where my oh but then way way way it ain't you. It's and I said Oh. Yeah it's a journey. It's a walk. You're walking with him every day every day. But I'm excited. I love seeing those messages. Where the a lot of people who are gay like I always thought God hated me on my baby people. Put that bullshit in your head. God doesn't hate you. What do you think that whole crucifixions about if got hated you than that things all in vain? Heine when Jesus died on Christ on that cross it was for everybody and I always liked to share the story. Have Y'ALL SEEN PASSION OF THE CHRIST? No who is so good. Okay well real quick. It's really good. It's I love history. I'm a history ups. I love anything that has to do with history it. Yes but really quickly. There is a impassioned the crisis crisis hanging on the cross and there's two criminals next to him one of a mock him in starts making fun of Jesus Ended Crow gouges his. I L you know than the other one is over here the other criminals like you don't deserve this I do. You don't deserve this. He's like wherever you're going. Can I go there to just to break it out and instantly? Jesus says were ongoing. You'll be there to everything that criminal dead. Whatever he did instantly. Jesus Welcome to heaven that quickly now like to use that as an example of how God forgives everything and loves everybody wants you accept it you know you gotta turn. The key opened the door and let him in. You know that somebody once said you know crisis in everybody but he has a resurrected in everybody when you accept them. The resurrection happens within you. And I'm like Oh baby that's deep it up like it added. I was GONNA preach up. You're on this day. Show glad you did. And before going into the circle building where you. What was your relationship with reality television or are you a consumer? Of course hello. I grew up in the two thousands the nineties as I love. I love reality. Tv I love Find Entertainment I just love entertainment and my only experience reality. Tv was dancing Queen Elizabeth Edwards..

"Thank you for having me on so excited to be here. Is Chris Sapphire. Your real name is now my real name. It's actually earliest stage name that I created many many many years ago and when I turned eighteen and started going out to the clubs partying I introduced myself as and when I began doing makeup. Introduce myself as Chris Sapphire and it just stuck now. Am I losing my mind or were you on the Elissa Edwards show. You Ain't crazy that's me. That's me yes I thought so okay so first of all. Tell me where you're from. You know your your backstory. I know that you are. You just mentioned that you do make up like give me the Christopher Story. Well you know I always do all kids. I believe that I'm a modern Dave forrest. GUMP my life story has just been absolutely insane from Dallas Texas. I'm thirty years old In that led me to do in radio back into my space days because I was getting a lot of traffic on my my space after doing radio for a many many years I ended up getting signed with the world of wonder people that do Rupa's drag race next to you know I'm popping out youtube videos. I get an email from producer from the network in Dallas. They wanted to audition for a morning news program Kinda like Good Morning America but for the CW. And I went in and got the GIG it was supposed to be a one-time gay I went from Youtube so that miracles and then after that show in did and that show was broadcasted about six seven seven cities around the country Elissa Edwards came knocking with dancing queasy Cameo in that. That's a reality show based on her life Take your best friends for a long time more so best friends the last five or six years. But we've known each other for about ten eleven years so in the last few years we you become really really close close right. She's actually. My neighbor lives down the street. So how were you cast for the show. Well it was a long long process. It was a very long process A friend of mine referred me to it and I thought okay. This must be assigned from God as dilemma just Semitic amid my application and I did getting a call back and then I kept going to the callback. Call back to the callback and honey. These were a lot of call backs. It's not very easy like people think and next thing you know after many weeks Chris you're going to the circle and I said Oh my God look Aubenas just so amazing. The story is just. It's getting good so that he had you ever seen the UK version of the show. Did you have any idea what was was going into it. Once I got cast I looked up on youtube but I saw like a clipper to but not enough to even know what is going on how to play the game. Dave what to expect So I really went into this blind absolutely blind. I didn't know anything really about the circle when I walked in the very first day. I don't even know how to turn the TV on when you're definitely memorable the when you walked in you obviously had a huge personality so many people have told me that you were their favorite person on the show gives us a little insight into what it's like. Well first of all where was this filmed. I can't say yet I can't I know I don't want I don't want to get in trouble It was filmed Willy Wonka chocolate factory. How long was it film for? We were in there. I was gone on for about a month. I was gone for about a good mind in film for a good few weeks at it was it was. It was what I would say experience of a lifetime. Everybody's interested in the food situation. Were you able to eat whatever you want. Did they bring you certain certain foods will be would have a list. We would make list of what we like to eat a they would be so gracious and kind and bring it to us in so I'm from Dallas Texas. I grew up Hella so I was in there crying out for heaters where you able to exercise at all there with a jam and I would exercise. I would right before I would take a shower. I do push ups crunches my daily routine my meditations in an Dan. Hi Back to work. Did you go stir crazy now. Thankfully I did it. You see for me. Spirituality is very important in my life. I am so that big journal that I carry everywhere yes. I was taking notes about the contestants but at the same time it was many notes in that the journal Spiritual Not Bible Verse Sustained Always Keeping Zan and collected and that really helps. Keep me going. Are you happy with the strategy that you used or the non strategy. Gee I'm so happy with the strategy I chose because I've never been Klay Queen and I wasn't going to start being on the circle when I was in high school on that kind a kid that would say hi to everybody jump around tables. Hey how ya doing. And so when I got on the circle and now playing the game. You don't know I didn't know what to do what's going on so I'm going you know. I'm taking the cautious brute. The cautious roots at so. I saw some of the players being very very friendly too soon and I started thinking a Red Flag. I don't know if that's good or bad. And so that's why I always stayed away from Making it clear who. I'm loyal to who or I'm in this group or this group. I'm just like it's lunchtime. It's high school. I'm saying hi to everybody where the contestants allowed to send messages any time they wanted or were there. was there a certain period where you are only allowed to send them. The alert would come out of nowhere. And then we'd have to engage with each other and there were times when we're Chilin now all of a sudden boom somebody wants to chat with us so the circle very psychological. Did you ever hear another human voice throughout this process. Will you don't hear any of the players anywhere you can't hear anybody screaming and shouting. They've made sure of that. And and You definitely have somebody guiding you. You know I wait so you have a producer that helps guide you along the way Definitely that but for the most part the circles circles going off on its own. And you're playing this game for real. What did you think about people who used fake pictures? Well I told Karen when I met her I said girl. You couldn't plagiar- is your sal. You're so much and meeting her. In person it only solidified how much by she is totally just proved that the person I was talking to was this huge ball of light. I don't care if you're you're real. I'm here to have fun. I was having fun. Is there anybody else that you felt like. He really connected with. Yes I left. Are I love my connection with Sean. I thought that was just so beautiful. I love my connection with Joey which you honestly elite I know they get to show any of the conversations. I had with many of the people. Because it's a forty five minute show but I connected really nicely with a a lot of them. We talk every day. A group chat private chat amongst ourselves. And it's been really fun because we get to lean on because nobody can prepare you for what's going on right now now. The the influx of followers in people riding model of the world no one. There's no class for this so like I say to other people might hunting. I think it's like being in the backseat boyz Spice Girl. Zig you've got somebody to lean on trying to makes all of this just look were easier. Who is most like The persona that that you had sort of envisioned through the process when you finally met them you thought this matches up with what I thought. And then who's the person that was didn't match up to what you thought Matched up what. I bought a B. Like issue bomb. Good US ovonic any such a delight sweet nerdy Lobley Jeff like I realize shells on the bomb is. He's a hugh who in real life absolutely dork tackler spectacular locked him. Joey all my gosh gorgeous gorgeous in real life absolutely gorgeous charismatic. Funny a dream guys. If he was gay old today would be the day. Ah Do you think that anyone's GonNa have a legitimate love love relationship out of this you're talking about Miranda Joe. Yeah I don't know I would hope so. I'm stay tuned to watch that too. Are you going to be giving advice to people who are auditions for the shell probably will give it to people who come off the second season the show. Be Yourself if you know you can't play somebody else. Trust to get be yourself. I have a really bad memory so I was not going to go into this trying to be somebody else goes outta. Messed up in their clock me and they would have given me the booth so I was actually going to be me. It's worked for me house. How's little boy? Let's just trust God. Let's do it but I would tell books yourself. Bring a lot of fun stuff to do in down-time read some books puzzles those have some fun And get ready get ready for a life changing experience so now here we are how long go was this filmed how long how long this back in I wanna stay. We were building in like August. Okay so here we are. You are getting flooded added with. DM's you had told everybody that you were single for a long time. Is that now going to change of honey. I'm still single. My friends are so as while they were right to be there like grow. Please tell us they are sent us some photos and you know what they're talking about into my. I said no the majority of people that right need their alrighty nice and kind messages and as guys hitting me none yet none. Yet I've been singled out fifteen sixteen. I don't have one boyfriend my whole life and I spent all my teens by late teens. All my twenty. I just turned thirty one. I spent all of thirty single in. Yeah no luck yet. No one's come knocking on my door so this is really a call to action. Listen for all the single men of the world.
"sapphire" Discussed on Capital Allocators
"We look for great managers in the early stage predominantly series exposure emerging or established. We are agnostic between the two. What makes a great manager? They've invested in great companies and if our growth fund is looking for great companies. There is a natural harmony our growth fund will do any deal that they think is great but again if without great managers of great companies. They'll be a natural interest versus saying you can only shop out of one of each other's pools and we just decided it was much better to keep it separate we think are. GP's are sensitive to making sure other information is separate as an LPN. The team my whole team of my mandate is to make sure our GP's are successful. Put that first and foremost not anything else and we felt by building the team that way we would go to market in a way that was authentic and holistic. And everyone can do. What's best for them? And if you build it virtuously than that will happen open to get this permanent of capital you have to have a certain type of capital behind you. So how did that all come together for Sapphire so when the growth with fund was started it came out of sap the large german-based Global Enterprise Software Company and they had been doing direct investing some twenty five years ago and the team that originally launched out became the first Sapphire Growth Fund at the time called sap ventures and then went on to rename themselves because there were independent and to SAP's credit. Fred they're a fantastic l.. P. The understood the importance of having an independent GP and being an LP. That's just their wisdom and their insight and I can't say enough good things and so when we came to them with the L. P. vehicle was a different conversation but it was similar was like this is a long term game on the LP side you're talking decades and how do you then structure or that in a way that they can play and they can feel that it's right by them financially but we're also set up for success and so being able to create a recycling trigger is what we put in place so as a capital comes comes in we can recycle it back which makes it a product which doesn't have a great name because it's not a fund of funds funds by definition has multiple LP's and has the different fundraising dynamic right. you go out and raise every whatever it is three years probably saying but maybe slightly different pool of LP's raise funds one. They can't then recycle into fund of funds funds to so we served at some of the things said. That's not going to work well for us. Let's do this. And having one source of capital becomes one of the important underlying creators of it and so the sap is the only source of capital the LP team on the growth fund there are other LP's now and the Sport Fund has other LP's now so that's why the groups have that difference because it's important one of our philosophies as a platform and very much on the L. P. side. Is that where you get your money for matters. You don't always have a choice understand the market. It's always gonna be hard to fundraise but if you have a choice how do you choose. And what do you do with that choice. And we believe very much the responsibility we're an LPN funds to show up and be strategic value and an O P can be as strategic in your importance as the direct investments are and so we always want to walk talk and that's how we've approached it and that's why we've kept a single source of capital on the peace because we believe that's what's best for the GP's and so then people say why do you do it you do. Because that's what's in service purpose of the GP's and I think as an L. P.. That is very very important. Mantra what does it mean to be in service of the GP's as LP while the way we've interpreted is essentially to always be their advocate right. You're there you're funding them. We wanted them to be successful and to do our part. And that doesn't mean to say you get involved in the knitting. Obviously that's called limited partner partner for a reason but we also try to bring to bear more than capital to the table when we launched in two thousand and twelve. We thought that was critical. And today it feels even more so right money's table stakes but there's plenty of it in the universe at large and there's different ways of structuring. Your capital so frazee. Evergreen structure was an important component to making the money any different long-term capitals different from short-term capital. And then what else can we do so we on these Sapphire Platform have a large group called portfolio growth and they have business development folks. They have marketing. They have talent and they do things that are value. Add services to both our GP's and the portfolio companies writ large is the shared service across our platform. So in that way we can say. What can we do that? We can bring to bear and supercharge things we look back at rl pay and say sap is a global enterprise software company. That's amazing and so part of what. Our portfolio growth group does is be the connection points so in our GP's or portfolio companies. Come to us and say we WANNA talk to sap broker that and we broker that by hosting innovation sessions in creating a curated dialogue. So it's not just a introduction into the masses. Say Good luck no cost later. It's it was bring people together and let's curate it so that the CEO's when they're talking to folks in the Sap Universe is hand held and so one make sure. The conversation is going to be useful for both sides. Sap also has an amazing customer base so part of what our portfolio group dies is also reach into that network and has very deep bench of CEO's that they know and so a number of companies that come to the innovation sessions aren't just sap because there might be questions at our portfolio has. That's just not going to be answered. Their right maybe it's Walmart or Coca Cola or or a bank or some other sort of infrastructure enterprise and so they'll do innovation sessions for a whole range of entities and that's all of that is what we want to bring same thing for talent. That's the hardest thing thing for every company startups otherwise and so. How do we use our talent experts to help bring a roster of board of director candidates? CMO's good rapidly turned over when they do dinners among CMO's we know more folks can help reach out again all this ideas to being in service so that when people ask us for help you can do that tactically. There's also things that I think. LP's can do because we have a macro perspective on the market we invest as an LP and funds in the US Europe Israel and you can see trends that pop up in different areas has and when you work with many managers and see even more that you don't work with just from interactions in life you can bring that to bear so we do benchmarking analytics. We're happy to talk. Best Practices things that we've seen. Historically those are all things that we think L. P. is can bring to the table that we should frankly how many people are on your team him to be able to sort of create this function of servicing well so the portfolio grow team is about ten people. They don't do investments they're all. There is other activities on the dedicated. LP team it's five professionals and that's dedicated to the investing side and the managing the portfolio and it turns out a little bit like there are say Andriessen Horowitz's taken can that service model to a whole `nother level in terms of volume. Is that edge. That you're trying to bring them as much activity to sap he and the resources of the company as it is the sort of broad crash the idea one of the wonderful world that we try to sell for as many to many injury injury since done a phenomenal job and they have a different structure for servicing that minor standings will come to their executive briefing center and get a whole roster of folks to visit within one day. That's not our model. Our model is much more curated and we'll do innovation sessions. Say What are the business challenges. You're facing and in listening to that then think through reservoirs portfolio companies. They'll be useful for them in your funds ends this focus on series A.. How did you think about the risk reward of that sub sector of the venture ecosystem? Well we had had the experience that on the growth side they come in sort of post product market fit when the tax has been a bit more depressed and it's more of expansion stage for a company. There's no need to replicate that. So what's a different part. That's interesting series has been a Gerbil. Portion of the SA- Vasic class has strong returns. Mean there's no guarantee just because you're investing in the series it's GonNa work out but when you look at the risks were as you said. It's a wonderful area to play and we do some seed to and even our series manager sometimes do seed so it's impossible especially in smarter take to be just in one little narrow window the world's pretty fluid and sometimes it ends up being a little bit later but still an early risk. So that's what we're really sorting for usually it's series. There's the country themselves have been a little bit further along so there's some de risking but there's still a whole bunch of opportunity set and what's IT GONNA be. People say product market congested and that is absolutely true but still a little bit more of the launching out of the gate and they're still more pivots on attack like that still a pretty fruitful stage when the growth fund had existed. How did you think about about attacking the series a through other funds and GP's compared to just sort of building your own series effort? No it's great. That was one of the first questions I want to give credit to the team. That was there. I was not there during the time of that but it thinking was what we could hire a whole new team and go out and do a bunch of early stage investing and it's one hundred percent Santa viable path. And you see folks doing that. They're thinking along with my thinking. which was well? You could do that or we could do a fun product and then you get many more connections very rapidly and one of the things from the L. P. Perspective is early stage does have a ton of S. That's why comes with roared. You can find an UN risky high reward scenario. It's good on you but doing it. As a portfolio funds helps to mitigate some of the highs and lows. So you're unlikely to lose all your money. Basically there's again no guarantee very important to say that. But the pooling of it does help and some of that and so that was part of what resonated on it and then for me is an opportunity. I know it's highly different from project finance but but the same thinking of a network and how do you pull together. And what's the upstream and downstream. And what are the different macro trends. That are going on. And how do you pick an opportunity to play in and then you you have to let it run as an LP like you know you're in it for twenty year ride so let's dive into the investment process. You go through which always starts with fertile. Where do you find? These ideas is from an. How'd you decide? Well the Nice thing about venture is that there is both an ongoing on ramp of managers..
Who do astronauts call when there's a fire in space?
"A safe environment for astronauts is the number one priority for all crew missions but who do astronauts call so when they have a fire in space is innovation now bringing you stories behind the ideas that shave our future understanding how fire behaves leaves in microgravity and how different materials will burn in space is extremely important for future exploration missions. Sapphire is a series of spacecraft fire safety experiments designed to investigate flame growth and material flammability in space. Here's Gary Rough Sapphire Project Manager at Nasr's Glenn Research Center one of the things. That is very interesting about fire. Safety Research is where we learn about out how things burn we. Model that into some very complex computational models and each of those models then gets reactions better gets the our our prediction better. Well those are the same kinds of models that can be used in modelling a house. Fire the results of the Sapphire Research. Not only only inform. STRA noughts how to deal with fire emergencies.

Martini celebrates the festive season with a limited-edition Negroni chocolate collection created by Paul A. Young
"The beloved Italian Coktail Negroni is one hundred years old this year and the Shuki pull a young has been asked by Martini to concoct brand new chocolate to mark the occasion. Well Uncles Ben. Ryland sat down with Paula. littler Elliot to talk about the creative and practical processes of marrying chocolate with such such a famous drink. Plus they enjoyed a little bit of tasting along the way I have the great privilege of being approached by fantastic brands And a half to love the brand and all I have to love the product that the brand of created and for me it has to be natural. Ashby pure and ask interesting. And I've known the Martini brand for for decades. I remember adverts in the nineteen eighties with a particular on roller skates. trae Martini and the any time any place. Any were to have a Martini so so it was. It was always a happy memory for me. So when they approach and said we've got these new reserve special and brought on Rubino for Moose my East pricked up because I'm not a beer drinker. Call volume alcohol drinker. Let one night champagne and spirits. But I like Negroni old-fashioned says bitter sweet flavors because you can have them over ice on their own stop blending them and for me. Obviously I have to blend into the chocolate. So the challenge for me was taking the two commutes on brought her which is a a number color and the Rabin which is this ruby color from youth and taste them dilute pair them with chocolate. Let's try and find a combination that celebrates negroni because the centenary celebration of Negroni without the chocolate distorting the flavors and characters in the botanical in the two Moose but also the vermouth are very complex. And they've got that distinct bitter sweetness to they can easily distort the chocolate as well so it was actually an opportunity for me to work with them on getting that balance. Absolutely right Let's take quite a long time. We always think about the delicacies Kasese that can go with a glass of wine for example. What it it's fairly common knowledge that certain foods should go with a glass of wine? Don't sit down to a lovely gloss of red wine and then and and then tuck into a box of chips not good idea that we often don't think about that same sort of methodology when it comes to pairing something something we chocolate. How do you know what goes well with chocolate? It's a really good question in two parts to it. When I when I first started in chocolate a quite few years I would be guilty? If you've ever analyzing and I think it it's the way some people take chocolate which is if you're doing it professionally or academically you do have to have a process of pinpointing and finding all of us delicate compounds flavors and tastes to the point where you're deciding whether this chocolate is fine. Quality with beans have been fermented well of picked well or and so on and so you really digging in Bolt for me when it comes down to it. I have to take it back to base level when I smell it smell texture to like the taste from beginning middle and end and Roy after the after taste does it work with ingredients and now you get people who will say what wine and chocolate hard to pair. I find it very easy to pair. That's because I've tasted a lot of chocolate and a lot of wine and I can think about those flavors starting out and you taste piece of chocolate. How would you know which one to pick their hundreds if not thousands of them on the shelf to boy Oy? It's really difficult and all I say is by and tastes and eat what you like. Try It if you think it doesn't work. You're probably right because you own your tongue on your taste spots. And if it pairs well great. An I have always with all my tastings and events set to people if you prefer eating or milk white or dark chocolate with a cup of tea fantastic few think it works for you. It probably does but when it comes down to do you like if you do great no matter what anybody else says because you a half to want to eat again and again and again I'm almost runner of the cadbury cream egg at with the woman dipping hurt chips into a cream egg. Yeah well salty and sweet is massive business. The chocolate industry tree lady is not as crazy as she looked. She has no But I I do have a box of beautiful chocolates in front of me and you just pulled me a gloss of the move which was very kind of you for this time of day. A little SIP exactly Tell me tell me first. What vermouth measuring? This has gone brought us. This is the amber colored very light fresh smell wise. I've got fruit and it has to me sympathy botanical. Medicinal that's not meant to be a negative Tiv- term. I remember as a child having buttercup Syrup as a medicine and Dundee Line serapis kind of things those botanical can pass over very successfully into a Moose yes and drinks and this has that element of bitter sweet to it which if you think about bittersweet flavor dark chocolate is bittersweet already got a really good foundation and having having having a taste It's light on the tongue but the aftertaste is really really long It's beautiful sweet as well. But not over not overpowering only switch cleverly made it very sweet not overly sweet at the beginning and then this kind of botanical bitter dryness comes in the end and the chocolate made with it is the blue and gold marbled finish which represents the best colors on the buttocks. It's a beautiful bottle. Ferry Italian design obviously and sticking with Martini brand absolutely. I think if you are familiar with the Martini a line of Vermouth e you probably would be impressed by this particular RESERVA SPATULA pull. Educate me on how I should be eating the chocolates with the truth. We've had a drink of Mussa. Still got the flavor. There have a bite of one of the chocolates list. It's the blue and gold when it has a very soft center of white chocolate. We've got some Bombay Sapphire Gin. We've the VERMOUTH in there. Got Some Madagascans chocolate. which is thought delicate fruity chocolate? And very little else the predominant ingredient in that is the vermouth because I wanted that flavor to to last on the tongue. And it's it's a gorgeous balance. The dark chocolate is just bitter sweet enough like the vermouth. Once you've had the first bite and it's melted and swallowed. I have a bit more. Vermouth just passed me. A A glass of Rabin now I suppose that means that well to be polite I would have to try some of this. You would have to try that one as well this array of full of flavor for me I get kind of a smell of time leaves and herb Leary is very very very smooth. A little a bit Rich in feeling flavor and that's represented in the chocolate as well. We've got that lovely Madagascar chocolate again. But they could nash the filling inside. I just heavier more full needs a bit more impact. Bit more strength to it. So it doesn't get lost in the Renault so now that we've had some of the redeem we should be tasting some of the chocolate or I'd have made the chocolates a half dome a very smooth surface and a dark chocolate can inside Very very different indeed this one. Yeah very dock inside and a much more pungent hit it take. It took a long time to find the right chocolates to work with the to the most because Kosta so complex for example. If you choose orange which I love chocolate and orange you instantly got. I honestly know which chocolate to put with it to get that nostalgic fail. I love chocolate orange. What this it was? Try again try again try again. It's absolutely fantastic. The opportunity to have something that is quite unusual all to work with both familiar. It's funny how I haven't had either the Vermouth to start with but the familiarity and some of the botanical in. I don't know where that's from. I'm from my many years past of tasting and eating but there is something in them and all my team who tried to. There's something in recognized but I don't know what it is. I think a lot of people might say I've I've never had vermouth on its own. I've had a Martini Shaken oster Martini or I've had it as a mix of had it in an aground. Have I had it with chocolate would would I tried it if it wasn't in the chocolate maybe not so my job and my responsibility is just to inspire people to try something different. Because that's what I've had the opportunity. It's due to create the chocolates. I think you've done very well. Thank you so much. That was really
AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Review: Navi Attacks the Mainstream
"Sebastian. You are in benchmarking central for pc per you have bled on the Rx five fifty the the latest amd Radian you titled the Article Navy Attacks. The mainstream I feel like this hints that this is an affordable card. This is this is basically their replacement for that price. Point that we've been used to from them that sort of two hundred dollar range part from the RX. Four four eighty two the five eighty. And we've been for a while now we've gotten used to seeing there are x five ninety selling it around that two hundred dollars price point and here's another another card. That's two hundred dollars for a desktop. She pugh targeting ten eighty performance for an ache by version. But they're also offering a four gigabyte goodbye version. Basically you know if you're targeting ten eighty p you don't necessarily need all that extra video memory depending on what you're doing what game you're playing. So then they have have this cheaper variant which is only one sixty nine and it pretty much goes head to head against the GTS sixteen fifty super though that card is ten dollars cheaper. So that's that's the back story for this launch invidia obviously knew this was coming. AMD had released east to OEM's this radio Rx fifty five hundred product. It turned out that was indeed an OEM only product. They'd said something about it coming desktop in in December on the reverse briefed about it. Well here it is and the desktop version is actually called the Rx fifty five hundred x t and and when I first heard that and thinking oh so this is what are the specs. What what is this What what differentiates this from the OEM version and really? It's just clock speeds. The X T is faster astor. It's it's the same. GP It's the new Navy fourteen right not to be confused with fourteen nanometer seven nanometer part. It's still the new. RDA The architecture. We just got navy. Ten or navy ten I that was with the our expertise seven hundred series and now we have fourteen and this is the same chip using for their fifty five hundred mobile parts. Like what we find the new macbook pro sixteen that we talk about every week. It seems and so. It's twenty to compute units. Fourteen hundred eight shakers eighty-eight texture units and thirty two rops and it's using really fast. Gdr Six memory. This is served fourteen gigabit per second memory and like I said a four gigabyte and an eight gigabyte version are going to be available available. In fact they are available. I was sent by. AMD was partner card so this is a partner only launch companies like X. FX and Sapphire esus and and the rest are going to have their own products for these amd doesn't have their own reference card that was kind of the oem only market for those so we got at this nice nitro pulse card from Sapphire which is one of those dual fan aftermarket cards and I ran it through some benchmarks benchmarks at ten. Eighty P using high settings to to see how it compared against others like sub two hundred and fifty dollar cards. And if you look at the performance numbers it's basically it loses to the Rx five ninety in most of the tests by a very small margin and it's faster then the GTS sixteen fifty super by a small margin so it's right in between clean those two
Where to Redeem Your Travel Points in the Bahamas
"All right next question from Scott from New Jersey Chrissy and he's trying to go. Stay in the Bahamas around Christmas. Let's hear what his question is. Hi My name is Scott. I'm in new. Jersey does and I was trying to book a trip to the Bahamas at the new Baja Mar and it showed me. The trip was ninety two hundred dollars or dog. One point three million miles on Amex which isn't a good return. So I was thinking the booking Amex getting five times the points and then in using current points at a one one which would cost me nine hundred thousand points for so for that The paid wondering if there's certainly better alternative so like Lowe's from New York City area to NASA it was blending nine nights at the rose in December two Christmas Day. Thank you. That's a great question you know. I really wish there. There was an APP that would tell you. You know you should pay for something versus US points and also whether you should transfer points or use points to a travel agency sense a little foreshadowing coming here because that's exactly what the gap is going to do. Which is launching an early Twenty Twenty Enough Self Promotion Zach? Can you help our friend. Scott out should he redeem points. Where should he stay? In the Bahamas I sure Baja Mar is supposedly an awesome destination in the Bahamas. We have full reviews of all the hotels in Bahama are on the point sky in my personal favourite. For redeeming points is the Grand Hyatt Baja Mar I. The Grand Hyatt has great reward availability. You have two choices for using chase points at the granted and Bahama. The first is that you could transfer them directly to high it in the since the Grand Hyatt Bahamas a category five hotel. Free Nights cost twenty thousand points for regular room or thirty two thousand points for a sweet the other alternative. If if you have chases Sapphire Reserve Card you can redeem your points directly through the chase travel portal at a rate of one and a half cents per point point in book the hotel directly through chases travel portal. The one thing to note is in that case you'll be on the hook for taxes and fees in your chase points will need to be used to cover those whereas if you were to send your points too high it and redeem for a free night award you won't be on the hook for taxes and fees always. He's double check. Whether it makes sense to book directly through chase or send your points to High Jack. Have you actually been to the Bahamas. Yeah I grew up in south Florida so getting to the Bahamas Imus was really easy for us and we could easily do it on a weekend. I've stayed at the Atlantis. I've also taken cruises stopped in the Bahamas and now that the ocean club club has been renovated as a four seasons. I'm really looking forward to trying out that new four

'There Are 5 Elections in November and 3 of These Are Great Jupiter Elections.'
"There are five elections for November and three of these are excellent Jupiter elections. This is especially important because November is the last month that that Jupiter is in his domicile until twenty twenty two. So it's really our last chance to grab excellent talismanic opportunities for creation of wealth. Good fortune growth of personal virtues such as justice and wisdom. We also have a fixed. Start Housman for Alpha Kappa who provides friendship and elevation through friends and there's also a twelfth house Lunar Mansion which is for improvement of harvest and plans and also empowerment of those who support us or need our help this issue as do do all issues feature is a magical lesson and this month. The lesson is about planetary days in hours. This is a wonderful way to time your elections without being very advanced in in your astrological elections skills. But it's quite powerful. I have spoken about it before on this podcast and we are working on it in my magical elections classic couple right now. The students have really connected with it doing weekly planetary rituals based on the day and hour of the planets. The other big news in this magical election issue is the introduction of the new section called discarded elections it features upcoming elections that may look good but actually contain significant problems. It can serve you in two always one. If you want a double check on your own elections that you have found and two if you want to check up on the charts of premade talismans. You're thinking of buying. It goes without saying that if you are buying astrological Talisman there should always be an astrological chart available and you should check it before buying just because it's for sale doesn't mean it's good or helpful or won't cause you problems so always check the chart of a premade Talisman and the section is one way that you can do that you you can always have an astrological magician. Check the chart of your planned purchase. And it's worthwhile making that small investment before you spend a lot of money on a talisman especially expensive offensive jewelry talismans. The free election for October is the Housman that will use Jupiter and he is of course in one of his novels Sagittarius. This election is for November. Twenty Third Twenty nineteen one thirteen pm to one forty three. PM set for Los Angeles California and wherever you are in the world so you will want to get eighteen degrees Sagittarius on the ascendant in your location for the beginning of the election but keep an eye on the moon which should be applying textile L. Venus the incense using your ritual according to the traditional sources will be you can have saffron sandalwood. Musk Camphor Mace the image is a handsome man sitting on an eagle. But as I always say if you have a strong command of planetary symbolism you can always create your own image composed of Jupiter her symbols that resonates with you and your goals emotionally whichever image you choose. This is the image. You'd want to write on or engrave on your talisman. This image is very important because through the eyes enters your being an act on the Seoul. This month's election will work for a paper Talisman or a verbal petition or a prayer there are better Jupiter elections in November that are included in this issue of magically elections. But I wanted to discuss this one because I think while it's good would there are some caveats that may not make it as strong as we would want and that would not make it worthwhile for a metal or stone talisman which of course lasts a very long longtime so the medal of Jupiter just for future references tin. There's also a yellow Sapphire amethyst but the really important important part of this election that I wanted to highlight is Venus Jupiter conjunction on the Mid Heaven and the Moon is on the blessed star Speaker which is applying dissect style Venus and and then Jupiter after that the one downside of this election which made me recommended only for a paper. Talisman is that the moon does not have very much light she is waning and has only a little light left. Normally a waning moon by itself isn't a problem. But this time if you have just a little sliver of a crescent like here it is a problem so I would not commit this election to anything really permanent like a stone or metal as always the spirits to evoke are the angels of Jupiter's hitters at Kia or his intelligence Yo feel and his spirit his smile his colors that you can incorporate in the Tasman or in the room or both are going to be see blue sea green and purple and as always I welcome your feedback if you do make this talisman all right now. It's time I'm from my conversation with Ryan Butler about what types of magic are safe and unsafe. which should be especially helpful for beginners? Who I feel a little bit anxious or uncertain about about where to start with astrological magic and don't want to accidentally curse themselves here? We go one of the things that the main thing will really focus goes on today with Ryan is. We'll talk about safe planetary magic or safe astrological magic. I should say and maybe we'll talk about some unsafe Ask logical magic as well because that's always fun but I know that's a big concern for beginners. You know what's safe what isn't I mean. Magic certainly can be kind of scary and it gets a lot of SORTA very dramatic representations in media so. I figured this was a good opportunity to pick somebody else's brain who has a lot of experience experience with doing astrological magic both the safe and possibly the unsaved and share experiences with you. All Right Ryan. So what would you say is a is a good safe practice or maybe even before that. What do we consider safe versus unsafe magic? Do you have a personal definition turnover. Yeah and I think that's something that Kind of changes or varies from person to person and I think a lot of it has to do with how risk averse somebody is So like you're not just in in magic but even in my you know regular regular everyday life or even in like investing is just like how much risk are you willing to take any any time you as like an astrological magician especially Alexa for Talisman or petitioner anything like that year assessing risk risk basically As as super funding fabulous as the sounds But you're assessing risk of not only of canvas election support. What is I'm trying to I do but also how likely is it that the you know that that the reverse will happen or some unforseen consequence So a lot of it is just how. How risky do you want to be in that something? That's going to differ from person to person based on you know temperament earth analogy but he's also like a amount on of responsibility. One has if you are apparent your your risk aversion is probably gonNA be higher than somebody who doesn't have dependents. It's or something like that like something or somebody that whatever you're doing could realistically also affect because they're insane household or something like that. I'm so for me me. I'm not a parent but I am a parent and so just like that is usually the end. It sounds kind of silly. I guess but usually what I run my stuff by is just like okay. How likely is this thing going to be able to? You know effect or you know hurt or just whatever Otherwise touch upon Mike. Pets is usually the way that is usually kinda like my first methods so like Sixth House House stuff in charts. I'd pay kind of special attention to just because that's my living situation or less. So can I ask a personal question Ryan. Yes if there's a sixth house versus seven thousand fiction which wants who gets yes swelled so to answer that question probably the seventh house because the seventh house could tell me something's wrong. Yes theoretically theoretically. That's right. He has the power to communicate rates yet. Investigate all right well. Now that we know everything about Ryan I think that's actually a great dive into this situation and a really practical way end because I think it's important to remember especially as beginner is there is no perfect chart right and there are certainly better choice than others. But no chart is going to be completely -pletely one hundred percent problem free. Would you say that's True Ryan. I think that's fair. The worst you can remain the best you can do is minimize those. There's certainly a lot of minimisation you can do. especially if you have a little bit of time to play with like you don't need an election right now but just recognize that there will be some issues with any tart and the the question is is going to impact some house and some planet and so the question is what houses in your life are better able to take that strain versus assist those that are more vulnerable and accurately points toward the fact that. Yeah if you have pets. There's they're probably can't really control their fate the way that the person could right so that's certainly one calculus that you could do but obviously it's going to be very individual and personal so you have to think about what in your life again is better able to withstand planetary issues even if they're hopefully minor but just recognized that they will have to go somewhere and and It doesn't mean that every talisman will bring you problems not by a long shot but again just recognize that again as Ryan said there is so amount of risk in your sort of assessing thing where you want to allocate that in your life
Star of India gem heist - October 29, 1940

"Sapphire ventures, August capital iconic with Q O'Reilly, Alphatec benchers and some other names. I think battery might have been in there, but a number of rounds all through series f I leave. Okay. So they raised a lot of money in there at the point where going public made sense. And it looks like they're founded in twenty eleven so that means they're about eight years old, which is actually a pretty healthy. You know, that's not that's not like some of the unicorns way. Seco public like at eleven twelve years old. No, it actually feels like an old school time line. You know, this is kind of appropriate actually. But if you haven't a fastly, that's the thumbnail. And then I talk about the. Renew. Now is that fair? Yeah. Why why did you get out of the S one? Well, first of all, I still love that's ones. And I'm so glad that it's IPO season. I just wanna say it again. It's so fun to open a new document and not know what to expect to get to read an income statement for a new firm. It's like the best thing in this job. So anyways, if you haven't read this one, go do it. Join me my nursery, but in two thousand seventeen Kate fastly had revenue one hundred and four point nine million. And that grew two hundred and forty four point six million in twenty eight team, which is I think about thirty eight percent growth. My math checked out a little bit under forty percent, essentially. And as a detail they spent forty one million roughly in twenty seventeen on sales marketing and just over fifty million in two thousand eighteen so you can see the investment is going up as they're trying to grow. But they're certainly of IPO scale as you mentioned before. Okay. So as fastly losing money like the rest of the unicorns going public or are they making money? Okay. Well, it's not it's not zoom. So it's not profitable. But the company's net. Losses are falling both in dollar terms from two thousand seventeen to twenty eighteen and in percent of Rev. Terms. So the company's net loss in two thousand seventeen was about thirty one percent of revenue and that fell to twenty one percent in two thousand eighteen so the path to profitability is there. It looks pretty healthy. I would say, I know this this company isn't as Flynn is like Pinterest. But. As fun. But it will probably have good IPO pop like zoom, which talk about next. We'll maybe. But I mean, the company needs more money. This is an IPO to raise capital because it has three seven million cash, and it's a negative cash flow both operating and investment activities. But that's fine. I were traditionally capital raising events. So I think it's fun. We'll have more when they set a price range and so forth, and we're expecting this to be a unicorn debut so over a billion dollars for sure and more to come..
