"So much for joining me. Thank you for inviting me. So as i mentioned you know ancient history is really out of my swing zone. But i think i like so many people who read your fantastic books are fascinated with the romans fascinated with this history. When did that fascination. to life for you. When i was very young really it. It's part of. It was seeing some of the old epic movies on the on the television. You know every. Every christmas holiday bbc would be showing spartak solo. One of these things and i started to get books about the romans men. It'd be this insufferable little child. Who was telling you what was wrong with the equipment and things they were wearing but it helped grow grew up where i live now. There's a remains as reminiscent theater remains of a roman army base. Twenty five miles away so this was it. Felt like my history. I could go and crawl over the stones. The romans left behind and that always made history in general just just fascinates me and i couldn't go anywhere role. See book about anything on easily. Get distracted and think. Oh wow that's interesting by tendencies away a lot on on anything. I thought if i become interested. So i'm easily distracted. But there's something about the romans said. I returned to all the time because apart from their influence on western culture is so many things we referred to that have a roman origin. But we don't necessarily realize it so finding out why we do this. Why we say that Why we write stories that way. These sorts of things are all interesting but in the end you can say about the romans. One thing they never was dull so even though you wouldn't necessarily want to have the moving next door to you. Well the roman empire today. It's very exciting stuff. It's interesting it's dramatic. It's over the top. Sometimes it's polling but it's never dull so after these years of studying it fulltime still absolutely fascinates me and i'm still learning lots of new things so I i can't see the vaccination going away. It's nice that i think it as i say a lot of people. It's you hear something you read something. And then it'll spark a memory sarma being in a filming months and chatting to one of the cameramen who said oh. So what's this unit crossing the rubicon. What does that mean because it has come up what we were filming so talk about that and it was just. Oh yeah. that's so it's it's there it sort of lurking in the shadows on. It's just more interesting when you know more. That is such an interesting point. Because i do think we all have this sense that we're looking into the mirror when we look at the romans but at the same time. Is that overblown do you think. Sometimes i think this is something. You wrestled with a little bit in your writing is that are..

Are My Instructions Not Clear? MMS Problems and Apple’s Bug-Reporting Black Hole
"So my ms bug. That i'm so in love with it. Had struck me during the very last episode like literally as we were recording the very last episode of the show and i talked to a couple of people on the inside about it and basically was told both gently and not so gently. Look if you don't get us this diagnose there's nothing we can do. What's this diagnosed. So my extremely limited understanding is that basically there's a log file or like buffer remained buffer. Something that exists on devices. And if you hold all three buttons on modern iphone so the volume up volume down in lock buttons if you hold them for about a second then it will trigger assist diagnose and what does is it takes All of the logs that are in memory or on disk. Or what have you presume in memory. But i don't know for sure and it will dump those to the iphones system and you can get to them in settings My phone is locked up. That's cool Settings privacy App data something seriously. Settings is just freaking locked. What the heck We can get to it somewhere in settings and you can airdrop that to your computer and then you can attach that to a feedback once you know. The thing formerly known the artist formerly known as radar settings privacy analytics and improvements analytics data and then you can search for s s and these things are usually multiple hundreds of megabytes. And the conundrum. Right you know apple needs to be able to find something to dig through other than just looking through code to to figure out what's going on and they're not exactly going to have me drive my iphone over craig's house so what you're gonna do but i I had one bog about links or the bug numbers in the show notes. I'd one bug that apple closed and then reopened probably because of all my coaching and whining. And then i made another bug. These have steig noses so apple people i love you. Wouldn't you mind just going ahead and taking a look at this please now. I'm going to do the cardinal sin of a person on the internet. I'm going to bring up something. That i got in trouble for in a different place because apparently i really liked punishment and i at the same time. This was all going on. This is literally christmas christmas day. That was know finally grabbing since diagnosis Right when it when it was happening. I also noticed that my beloved sinology drive client. Which is you know this. -nology version of dropbox They they're icon on big sur if you if you use their quote unquote minimalist. I conscious to say they're monochrome icon. There i call him. Big sur in dark mode is super duper bright white. Which is like the world's most ridiculously silly aesthetic bug that affects nothing functionally. But it's really annoying on my laptop. And so i filed a bug. I it was the twenty third or something like that. Saying hey can we fix this icon in the certain setting on this certain us on the certain machine that'd be great and i was expecting them to be like whatever dude. Leave us alone. I was getting replies from them. Christmas eve christmas day the day after constant replies about something that is the dumbest bug in the world. It does not matter. And i'm getting all these replies from sinologist like like it's their job to keep their customers happy. Imagine that they value customer sat and and so it was startling to me. Because i didn't actually expect a response from sinology. All be certainly not on a time that most companies not all most companies are probably you know on skeleton staff or perhaps off entirely. Apple is and sure enough. I'm getting replies nonstop and it's just so striking how quietly hostile bug reporting is within apple and how actively great it can be a company who really cares and so with that with bad mouth aside. Hey fix my bug please. That'd be great. You've you've invoked my a time delayed rage by putting the word sis diagnosis and follow up. I must now At my recent complained about it. So there's a bug that i've been tracking It's the bug that. I saw him one of my aps. But it's not a bug in my app. As far as i can tell. I saw it in the big sur beta. I made a sample project that just puts a window on a screen and just demonstrates the bug right even put a little bug icon on it right. So here's a sample project with with very low code like you know. Twenty lines of code reproducing this bug and sent it the apple during the big sur beta of course they send it back after like a week saying we need to diagnose sure whatever they did also ask him by the way although this is diagnosed hotel what time you captured it. Yeah i'm like seriously you. I mean surely the time is right. Isn't it a giant log. Yup right and not only that. But i think the file name might have data and then of course the meta data for the filed self has the data it. But whatever find here you go apple. Here's this diagnosed i. I ran my sample project which is attached to the book report. And sure enough when you follow the instructions and run my sample building project. It triggers the bug and then i capture assist diagnose and then i noted the time and here it is and then it sat there for like a week or two and new betas came out and didn't get fixed and then they send another thing that bugs is can you please capture a six diagnose and tell us the time that they came out and this is like a month in us unlike omega. Listen and i did. I did the cardinal sin. Which is like i tried to communicate to whatever. This is replying to me as if it's a human because i don't know that it's a human right and i said listen. Here's another i did it again. i did. Here's another diagnosed. Here's the hammock captured and said like. Why are you asking me the time that i did. It was captured. Can you reproduce. It does the sample project that included not work for. You like that's valuable data. Hey guess what We can't reproduce this right. And i said i'm running it on the dc k. Because at this point. I'd sworn off big sarma main computer. I was able to reduce on both but by by this point. No more big mac pro. So is it like what's the problem. Can you not reproduce it like. Are you having trouble reproducing. Our mind -struction is not clear should capture like a screen screen capture video showing what it looks like. In fact i took photos of my screen and the rural report. And i said because when i tried to take a screen shot at triggers like a refresh effect which fixes the cosmetic bug fixes the cosmetic bug if you take a screen shot of it for whatever reason and i included that info on the original book report and i took photos of my screen and i said. Here's why i'm sending you photos on my screen and not screenshots so helpful and it's like a month in like what's going on no reply and anyway came to. My bug is not fixed. still no reply bug. that's

"We should do it. We should get a lot of the transactional stuff is really making us feel lonely and disconnect. It has been a strange year in and you wrote the emotional rollercoaster felt so many more emotions in business and in my personal life this year than I think I ever have. Yeah, there's been some big learning big big learnings from 2020 and it's not done yet. So but look, it's been an absolute pleasure getting to know you and it was it was lovely having you on LJ Hooker acceleration. She and also getting the opportunity to speak to you again today. If there is one thing that you would like the audience to take away. What would it be what I find is that all the research shows that if somebody wins a month or two years later, they're less happy than when they first started those people who survived cancer two years after their emission. They significantly happier. I'm hoping birth. The lessons you learned over this year will give you perspective. They'll bring you closer and more connected. We will realize how fragile our life on this beautiful planet is dead and will learn to treasure. It will be learned to be more grateful for what we have for the water coming out of the faucet for the hand. We can hold the person who can hug.

"And why so I think listening is overrated I think should stop listening to people so what I mean by that what I mean, but and we've all had situations like this with somebody says, you're not listening to me and then you repeat word find what they said, but that's not creating connection what really what other person really wants is to make them feel heard. So I think you got to do more than listen. You gotta make the other place. Feel hurt once you make that other person feel her you create a strong sense of connection. Yeah, and what is the best way because you know, like I think there's a lot of times where people sort of would think oh, oh they not listening to me and at times I made it might even say the same thing to my husband. You're not listening to me. What is a better way of actually getting the message across because as soon as I say something like that, he just goes talk to the hand switches off on most. Comes down to domination language. So when I say to you you're not listening to me you want to now listen to me less read more because you may be feeling judged like our commands thinking imma get like really what would like or he's thinking of incompetent. So that stems from the language wheel and between at the age of 0 + 3 + 0 + 7 it's at domination language, so to shift that it's more appropriate. I think what you really want what you really really want. Is Sun like Spice Girls know what you want from this process is you want your partner to make you feel hurt. So if I say too I really want you to make me feel heard. That's a totally different 5G. Yeah, because it brings them in rather than pushing them away. Yeah, so I guess we've talked about language and we've talked about how we speak to ourselves and we've talked about trouble communicating in the workplace and communication is absolutely key right now. And I know you know, you talked a lot about when when conversations and things like that, but I guess if I was meeting for the first time perhaps on Zoom or something like that or as a real estate agent meeting you in the lounge room for the first time. I think you said you've got about 30 seconds to make a decent wage concession on someone. Can you talk me through that? What in these crazy times in this crazy year called twenty-twenty is something that people should do that's a good question and it is a challenge. Finding Zoom exhausting. I'm finding WebEx Cisco, whatever. You've got out there Microsoft teams. It's weird looking at a screen. Number one number two..

"Your results. Now you may achieve the results it is so exhausting to achieve your result from a place of insecurity. So if you're in sales and you always beating yourself up because you haven't done this or you haven't done that dead. You might that might spur you to action, but you'll get to a particular age and got gosh with the last ten years ago. I just I spend all this time beating myself up to get to where I want and now I've lost those ten years wage. One of the other things that you talked about quite a bit was words and it was a bit of a like there are certain words that we don't use in here and I think I raised them during the webinar one that we use a lot of war-related terms. Like I crashed it and smashed it and you know, the one that I've never liked is deadline. We we like Finish Line instead genuine long after this webinar and after some of the things that we talked about I've caught myself covering my mouth my hand because they didn't realize even I did it so much. Where does this come from? And why should we rethink our language? Sure. So I'll tell you what it came from at the end of the second world war a lot of the ex-military especially us was decommissioned dead. And where do all the soldiers go the people who are command-and-control they go to large corporations like Bell Atlantic or or wherever right? And those companies did well because its command-and-control Lauren Manufacturing the large Business Schools like Harvard Stanford Yale UCLA. They had a case study approach to looking business. Where would they go for case studies and go to the successful businesses Atlanta G and they would pick up business best practice from these companies. Now, if you were a leader in one of these companies the first place you would go to to find really good team members. You're all buddy Nate's you're all buddies from the Army. So this war like mentality took em to really govern the way we think about business..

"This is obviously a huge problem. So what I find is that we think we can communicate and connect because we know how to talk. Nothing could be further from the truth connection and communication is a skill. It could be learned. It's going to be mastered. I think I'm pretty bad at it. That's why I'm a very good student of it. So it's like really good sales people. They don't know how to teach how cells you know sales but the people who are not good at it, but then became good at it. Then you can teach it much easier because you can see so I think that as a species we really need to learn how to communicate and connect. We send them a Tesla up in space what you know, we sent these Rockets the went up into space and then came back and had this effortless Landing. This is a species 10th. Years ago the height of our technology was and act so we've learned how to be technologically incredibly bright but we still struggle to connect with one another beer with our partners we can but our parents home kids being with a team members be with our leaders. We have I'm hoping that we will get a huge shift in the way. We can connect and communicate with one another. I hope that I can one day can connect emotionally with somebody straight away rather than the same way. I can pick up the phone. That would be really cool. Yeah, what sort of a chip would you give like knowing those statistics now, there's probably some principles of real estate offices out there who's Georgia's probably drop without the 49% of employees would rather quit than actually have a conversation. What's one tip that you could give them to sort of open the lines of communication just that little bit better. So my belief is that tips and hacks are almost the antithesis of Mastery, I think as long Either you need to master connection and communication. I think what we do is, you know BuzzFeed the five tips to save your relationships the temp tips to have a great body. It's not thought that otherwise everybody would be having six pack abs and madly love with their Partners boyfriends and girlfriends and all that good stuff. So I think it's not a tip and I think what it is is more about a level of awareness that there are a lot of things that people can't say, but they really want to say and if I was to talk to, you know, the people that are listening to this podcast. Give people permission to talk about what their uncomfortable about the talking about make sure that you create that space and give them permission and that won't come straight away. It comes again you go to ask it again and again and again and again, so I'll share something with you since my kids have been seven years old. I've been asking them for feedback on how I am going as a parent. Let me log. You the question did your parents ask you in terms for feedback in terms of how they're going as parents? No never so here's the thing. What I find is that since I've asked my kids to feed back since was seven years old and it's a proper sit-down session, right? You know, we're going get ice cream. We're going to get hot chocolate and I I give them fair, you know, make sure that they know in advance that I need some feedback on I want to be a better dad tell me how I can be a better dad and the stuff they've shared with me has been golden absolutely golden. So if you're walking form an idea on what could really change a dynamic in your office or in your business is ask for feedback ask for often create a nice sense of openness with people willing.

"And but I also see a lot of people entitled on the news. We see a lot of people entitled holy cow, but I think if you can appreciate how privileged we are, but make sure you don't go to that, you know depth of entitlement you can flourish mentally and emotionally. Yeah, and there is a big difference between both and I think that somehow the the thing that we get caught up in his feeling that we should have this or that we should have that whereas, you know, I think it's much much more productive to be happy with little as you say, but you didn't made a leap a big leap really from stuffing. A monastery to where you are now, so can you give me a little and it must have you know, obviously this is very different like working for big companies some of the big companies you've worked for like we're just talking about your time at home and stuff like that big change from being in a monastery. So tell me how you got from point A to point B here. So what I came back to Australia, I wasn't allowed to go to high school because I'd skipped high school. So I went to church I went to Meadowbank tape, which is a great place for me to vent a better buying tape and has read walking Indian accent. Like I do the head wobble. I would speak really really fast. I share something with you. Actually I did a interview at on the ABC for are you? Okay? And I told the ABC team I want to let you know how grateful I am to you because my dad told me look no because I understand what you're saying you change your accent a bit. Okay, so I used to watch ABC News know if you remember Richard morecroft dead. I to tape Richard morecroft every day and then I would listen to it. Then I would try and articulate the words the way he articulated it so I would do that. So then I I do the honours degree in economics and an MBA and so I said my corporate career at McKinsey which was very very different from the monastery. And then I went into funds management. I didn't start up a private life refund in the it sector and the biotech sector but I think the biggest thing for me was I love learning and for me I have to play a game worth playing so I always present, what is The Game worth playing for me and what really resonated with me and all the trials and tribulations that had my life is I think leadership is one of the most deadliest resources on this planet.

Officials resign in Lebanon in wake of deadly blast
"A growing fury in Lebanon as the country deals with the aftermath of a huge explosion in Beirut that has left 300,000 people homeless. And at least 160 people dead. Protests have erupted yesterday, Demonstrators staged mock hangings of top officials demanding they resigned. A few members of parliament have Meanwhile, the political elite point fingers at each other for the failure to secure the huge cache of ammonium nitrate that caused the blast. Nadim Curie is Thie, executive director of the Arab Reform Initiative team and the former head of Lebanon's human rights Watch office and his watch. Lebanon have to rebuild calamity after calamity and he joins us now to discuss what's happening. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me. Your grandmother lives near the port. Can you tell me how she and your other family members are doing? No, they survived. Almost miraculously, when you see the damage that happened to their building and how close they were to the explosion, they survived with minor scratches. Most of my friends and neighbors from that area everyone has a survival story. It was often a question of seconds of luck of a door that protected them from a flying glass and so forth. Most Lebanese have stories of survival over the last 23 decades, escaping bombs escaping now this explosion, But this time it really that the scale of it is shocking for listeners with don't know Beirut, it happened. Very close to the major entry point of the city. This was also the area where most of the restaurants, cafes and bars were so really, it's an attack that sort of at the heart of the city. The Lebanese have started to protest again. Government corruption They had been doing that for most of last year. What makes this kind of endemic corruption different in Lebanon? Than in other places where it might exist in Lebanon. The corruption has now become part of the A of the political system of the country. The so called you know, Secretary in Cassock Schimmel system You cannot appoint A single official. Whatever the rank is without going through the client, illest IQ sectarian networks off what we call the Sarma, the sectarian leaders. Now, why is this corrupt Because that means you cannot hold a single official responsible without going through these traditional sectarian client ballistic networks, so we should say here. Of course, Ever since the Civil war in Lebanon. What has been put in place? Is that a sort of government that is set up Tio Cater to different sectarian interests in the country. Yes, This is how it officially gets described. But in practice, what we've discovered is that it's really a system that caters to six oligarchs who are corrupt. They are of different confessions. And they pretend to speak in the name ofthe their sectarian group by saying we defend this confessional group. All services for the group have to flow through us. But in practice what the Lebanese have been discovering over the years is They're not protecting anyone but their own pockets and their cronies, pockets and the system in a way, it's a bit like a cancer. It started initially, supposedly for the High level positions to ensure that all communities are represented, but almost like a cancer that is spreading through the body politick. It has now circulated down to every single layer of administration of our government's so even when you go to the port of Beirut You know, the porters that are getting named, depend on a political leader, appointing them And why did they do that? Because this is how they keep them in line and this is how they get their political loyalty. It's a system of patronage, essentially. So what needs to happen then? In your view to move the country forward. The main Demand today is tohave a salvation government off people that are outside off the existing political class. This would be a government that has a clear mandate to steer the ship through the economic crisis that would have the trust of the people. It would be an exceptional situation for two or three years just to stabilize the ship. And adopt affair addict oral law and have elections in two or three years, which hopefully we'll see the emergence of new political parties. I must ask you a someone who watches Lebanon A someone who is Lebanese. Are you concerned that this might be a tipping point? It is a tipping point if we do not get rid of this political class All of Lebanon's talents. Those who can leave will leave in the coming 12 months. They no longer want to live in that country because they see a state that is killing them slowly and they're not just killing them with these explosions there, killing them with the corruption, which makes the environment unlivable. Lebanon now has one of the highest cancer rates. It's killing them with the economy, the country can be rebuilt. Unfair er better basis, but it's clear now that this cannot happen While the current political class remains in place. I realize what we're talking about is really a fight as to who's going to stay in Lebanon. It's day or us

If you were to I always say, like if you look at it like the heavyweight boxing division in the seventies with Ali, and Frazier, George Foreman, and then you know, in the early eighties, it was bad or mid eighties. It was bad. Then came up again with Tyson. What would you say? Stand up is now. It's on an uptick, and it seems like heavyweight boxing's also on up ticket is yeah.

How your teacher for seven years, yet, because in the first grade, that's where they, you basically get left back if you haven't, like you have a year of kindergarten, would you could just be like just a kid brand to the world. Almost like a wild animal. And then by the first grade, if you haven't caught on when the hold you back. So they would like half the year.

"Just a perception on my part because they did eat they drink. They married wives. They were given in marriage until the day that no entered into the arc and the flood came and destroyed them all. So what one way to minimize this illusion that was business unusual until came that maybe the primary focus here, but there are many. Scholars looking at this more carefully leave that. What he's also saying to understand the situation of the times in need understand the days of Noah, which were the days of hybrids and all his spooky stuff going on Genesis six, and we will go through all that here. Again, that's fine. Out of entire world that time, the only save nine people. How many? The eight and the ark and who else. Translated first of all, so. Been removed prior to the flood are finding. Likewise, also it wasn't the days of lot. They did eat drink. They sold the plan. They build it the same day, a lot when of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. So Jesus drawing to allusions one from Noah, and the flood and the other one's lot in. In both cases, it was business as usual right up until the sudden crisis if you will. Now, it's interesting that in the flood innocuous removed before the flood. In Sarma Maura lot, and his family removed before the judgement. That's going to be a major point here. Even show.

"sarma" Discussed on Freedom Fast Lane with Ryan Daniel Moran
"Not having the way. I don't know. I can't tell you, but from a on paper standpoint, plant based protein powder might be a better choice in the morning ways. Definitely something I love post exercise. Okay, great. So I feel like I've got a good starter plan here, at least in terms of structuring my macaroni trian structuring the meal timing structuring my workouts. The one thing I have no problem doing is getting to the gym. Like if I don't go to the gym in a day, it's a weird day. So if I'm not there six days a week, it's it's a weird week. So I have that dial then it's all the other pieces that I need help optimizing. There's one question I wanted to go to next and I felt we were talking about that publicly, but like in terms of things like, well, chemicals and bio hacks, we might call them. There's so much noise about like everything from intermittent fasting to taking his testosterone. Thrown to Sarma something I've experimented with to prescription drugs. I guess what I'm asking is like a are any of them particularly helpful and be are any of them as harmful as some people say and three are they necessary for us to talk about until everything else is dial in and then the media question? It is. So what's dive into those things Ricarda talking about your goals of having a particular body aesthetic. So we'll talk about exhaustion. It's for in storms. I is echo exotic hormones will we're gonna call them what they are like steroids, anabolic steroids, which essentially would be taking testosterone or a derivative type compound liked to stop thrown typically in injection for him, but sometimes in pills and creams. And is it effective for muscle building and fat loss? Absolutely. I mean, you raise your dos ruin levels to super physio logic levels. Your body will start to Bill. Muscle, and that's why steroids are affective. The problem on that a lot of people do know and are aware of there's many. But I think the main one is the fact that series are very effective while you're on steroids. And when you come off them, your body has no little to none internal Strom production. A lot of the muscle that you may have gained when you're on cycle, you will lose after the fact because you have to re kick start your body system, throw levels, and you're right. It doesn't wanna hold onto muscle, passed a certain genetic limit. And so ultimately guys look great when they do take these things. We're now seeing a lot of the golden era bodybuilders now dying in their sixties and seventies from heart attacks. So we know these things are not great for your heart. And we also know that our bodies to live a long time need this balance between Nablus him building up protein synthesis in catabolism breaking down and in the bodybuilding circle people are so afraid of that word cata Bolic it's like the second. You get out of the gym, bro. You're gonna, you're going catapault hit that. Teen shake, right? You know, it's kinda like the thing, but we need catabolism and that's why we have fasting because ultimately a lot of these diseases that kill us or anabolic diseases like cancer responds incredibly well to growth hormones and to, and it has some of the highest rate of protein synthesis around. And so there are a lot of a dangerous to creating a hormonal environment in the body where you basically turned on the anabolic switch. You're keeping it on when your body likes to build a move that lever up and down throughout the day. Now SARS for those who are not familiar are a selective androgen receptor modulators. So these are these are compounds that bind to the same receptors inside the nucleus of the cell that Dawson would bind to accept. They're not hormonal and a lot of these things are so many of them that are being developed in elaborate now. And in theory, they should have a lot of the benefits of testosterone in terms of they bind to those same nuclear receptors caused the downstream muscle building, but they're not. Amonal so they shouldn't cause negative feedback shutdown. And I guess we just don't have enough data about them. There are certain people that see great results with psalms. I've seen some blood work as well. That hormone levels do change negatively after coming off a psalm cycle..
