No. 1 seed Alabama beats Maryland 73-51 in drama-free game
"There are only two number one seeds left in the NCAA men's tournament as Houston and Alabama both advanced to the sweet 16. Houston defeated auburn 81 64 behind 26 by tremond Mark and 22 by Marcus sasser, whose opening three pointers set the tone for the big night. I've been really going live in practice, so just to get that, you know, that game feeling, you know, real early, it was good and I felt like it helped me throughout the game. Alabama topped Maryland 74 51, led by Japan queenly with 22 and Brandon Miller with 19. I'm Gary Mackay
Sasser hurt anew as top seed Houston beats Northern Kentucky
"Number one seeds Houston and Alabama one in the opening round of the NCAA tournament in Birmingham, the tide overwhelmed Texas a and M Corpus Christi 96 75, while Houston struggled the toppled northern Kentucky 63 52. Houston coach, Calvin Sampson. They were tougher than we were tonight. And that's not easy for me to say. Other winners were Maryland, which edged West Virginia 67 65, and auburn, which beat Iowa 83, 75. Winners advanced to the second round on Saturday. I'm Gary mckillop's.

"I think the interesting part about this matchup is the fact that Bryce Hopkins, the former Kentucky wildcat, has reinvented himself, was limited in his minutes at Kentucky, has become a star for Ed Cooley and Providence, and they are tough. They rebound the ball very well, very physical at the defensive end of the floor. Devin Carter is electric in the open floor, attacking downhill, trying to get to the free throw line. And it's a matchup that I could see Kentucky winning, but it's also one that I could see them losing. And that uncertainty has left it blank for me. And I still have yet to render that game, a judgment. Either way, I don't see either team passing cans of state in the second round. So yeah, I mean, that's where I wanted to go, because everybody was, I think was Kentucky, Sean, we get hung up on Kentucky, but you say Kansas state. That's a very difficult reason. Two more teams. I would like to grab you before you head out of here. Arkansas has been impossible to figure out the whole season long other than that they're inconsistent. Do you see, I mean, they've got a tough opening round matchup. Do you see them having any hope to make any noise like they have? They've been to two straight elite aids. Well, I think there's an important thing that we have to remember at this time of year. You're playing outside of your conference. So when you're playing outside of your conference, opponents are not as familiar with your personnel, how you do things, and I think that could benefit Arkansas because of how disruptive Eric Musk's defense can be, how they want to turn you over, how they can get utilized their athleticism to get out in the open floor. This team just seemingly has lacked its rhythm, though, and its full complement of players all season long. Nick Smith is an important game for him. He's got to be able to show up and show out. But Illinois lacked consistency as well. You don't get to the 8 9 game is a power conference team without having some question marks over the top of your head. And the align I have had plenty over theirs as well. So I do like Arkansas to win this game. I do think that the overall athleticism of Arkansas is going to be too disruptive for the alaina. The other one and there's been a lot of criticism of the committee typically of auburn's seating, not so much the seating, but where they were placed. We heard from Kelvin Sampson. They're in Birmingham. Now, for those who don't know, Birmingham and auburn are two hours distance, but it's still a bus ride. As opposed to cross country, explain this regional to us, especially concerning Houston and auburn. Well, I think here's the thing when you look at auburn and the matchup against Iowa, Iowa's 5 and ten away from home this year. While they are elite level offensively, they do struggle defensively and they struggle away from home and those offensive numbers aren't as good away from home. I think that benefits auburn a great deal here. Home environments are important, right? Like when the crowd gets behind you, all of a sudden you've got a belief factor, everybody starts rallying around you and for Calvin Samson, what he's concerned about is not only looking at that second round matchup against auburn, but he's got to figure out who his team is without Marcus sasser. Marcus sasser scored 50% of their team's points in the quarterfinal win that they had in the American tournament, then he goes out with a groin injury. They beat Cincinnati and then they really struggle to score the ball against Memphis in the American championship game. And I think their path to the NCAA tournament, if sasser doesn't go, auburn could be in the sweet 16. If sasser plays Houston's better than auburn they've been more consistent, their defense is better. They're stronger. Their resume from top to bottom is better. But being there in Birmingham, Alabama, as you mentioned, a bus ride away. I know that the auburn fans are going to show up. And if Marcus sasser is out, it might be enough to get auburn all the way through to the sweet 16. We'll continue conversing with Sean as we get ready for the NCAA tournament. Sean many, many thanks. We appreciate it. We're heading to the break right

"And Iowa state, by the way, another team that lost a notable player in recent weeks. He was dismissed from the program, Caleb grill, but still that somebody they used most of the season that isn't available now. That Mississippi state pit game is a great or at least an interesting first four games. I'm looking forward to that. The winner plays itself into the Midwest region. I'm with you. Texan and Penn State is my favorite first round game in the Midwest and one of my favorite first round games because it's two teams playing well heading into this event. Text a name is ten and two and it's past 12. Penn State is 8 and two in its past ten. Penn State in that stretch got wins over Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, a and M, these ten and two record and the last 12 games got wins over Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, auburn. Texas a and M is among the teams, along with Florida Atlantic, and if you listen to Sunday Night's bracket breakdown show of the I on college basketball podcast, you've already heard me talk about this for ten minutes, so I'll be quicker this time. But I think text a and M Florida Atlantic are two under ceded teams for our purposes in this region. We'll focus on the aggies. They started 6 and 5 with losses to wafford and Murray state. Which is obviously terrible. And you should never be a power conference team, 6 and 5 in your first 11. And taking two losses to sub 200 net teams is going to be a real bang on your resume. But since the loss to whopper, that was December 20th. If you go to December 21st, the day after and run the day at bark torvik dot com, Texas a and M from December 21st through today, which is nearly three months. Three months sample size is the 8th best team in the country, according to Bart torberg dot com. This team I thought should have been seated closer to four, 5 range than a 7 seed, but either way it is a team that I did pick to go deep into this into this bracket. And it's a team I've got getting past Penn State, but Jalen Pickett is terrific for the lines and they've been terrific down the stretch and that's going to be, I think, competitive first round game regardless of who wins it. I do want to circle back to the most notable injury in this region. And that's because it's for the number one seed. It's the AAC player of the year. It's a legitimate NBA prospect in market success. For people who aren't familiar in the semifinals of the AAC tournament, he collapsed on the court, it has been described as a growing injury, a strain growing. He did go through pregame stuff on Sunday before Houston played Memphis in the AAC title game, but he did not play and Kelvin Sampson said afterwards he was never going to play in that game. I think most people understand it to be just an era on the side of caution type of thing. But how concerned chip should Houston fans be about Mark assessors injury? Extremely concerned, soft tissue issue injuries are very tough to figure out and they can linger and even worse than that. They could be re aggravated. That if he gets the clear to go, he goes to warm ups, he gets out there and in the heat of competition, he makes a move to try to play winning basketball and re aggravates that groin injury. Sometimes the soft tissue, the soft tissue injuries, you are able to play through. You don't re aggravate them. Sometimes like in the football side of things, so how you state wide receiver Jackson Smith and jig, but one of the top wide receivers in the NFL Draft class only played about two and a half games for a buckeyes team dealing with a hamstring issue that lasted the entire season. So they should be extremely extremely concerned because being the number one seed in this region, eyeing a final four that is based in Houston and given the success of this team. I mean, we had to fill out that CBS sports dot com who are your top seeds and list them in order going into selection Sunday. I made the argument for Houston. I just said outside of a Sunday visit from Aaron McKee and temple, what has this team done that has not been exquisite? Like every everything in the list of results, everything in the computer says that this has been a team that has done everything you want it to do. Obviously they add another loss to Memphis and that apparently might have played a role in them not being the overall number one seed. So yeah, for everything that they've accomplished over the last three years for everything that they've accomplished, this season to not have Marcus sasser for the games that will decide how the season ends, the potential of that is just heartbreaking for a Houston fan. So how concerned very? They're gonna get through northern Kentucky without needing Marcus sasser to win. Iowa auburn, I don't know, depends on which Iowa shows up and that I was even able to get past auburn, auburn, guard pressure, defensively, could very much require Marcus sasser. But anything beyond the second round for Houston to hit it ceiling, they need sasser and the lineup. Would you be tempted if your Kelvin Sampson even if Marcus says or is cleared to play on Thursday night? Would you be tempted to hold him out of that game against northern Kentucky and just give him a couple of more days without true basketball activities to make sure he's closer to 100% than he otherwise would be. 100%. That would be the plan. Like when I meet with my medical staff, I would say let's have him, if he's clear, then let's practice with him. If he's cleared, let's let him go through the rhythms of the process, but it's a break glass in case of emergency situation because I know that the team, even without Marcus sasser, should be able to just go squeeze northern Kentucky into submission. You mentioned if Houston wins, it will play either Iowa or auburn. In Birmingham, Alabama, meaning they could be playing auburn as a 9 seed in Birmingham, Alabama. I just fundamentally don't think, I know that doesn't violate any bracket principle because if it did, it wouldn't be a part of the bracket. But I think that should be a bracketing principle that your one seed shouldn't be at risk at playing a de facto road game in the second round. Playing auburn in Birmingham puts Houston at a disadvantage, it bothers me doesn't bother you. No, I think it's a wrinkle of the tournament the same way that there's teams that aren't good who get good seeds and teams that are good that get bad seeds. I understand the frustration with the fairness of it, but it also is such a chaotic tournament that often when we look up at the end of it, things have mostly sorted themselves out, then I consider them not the people use the feature bug saying, I don't go that far, but I think it is, it is yet another layer of imperfection in what is an imperfect single elimination tournament between college basketball teams and 40 minute games. We have in some form, at least mentioned Houston, northern Kentucky, Iowa, auburn, Miami, Drake. Iowa state against either Mississippi state pit, the Texas a and M, Penn State. I want to ask about Indiana and Kent State. Rob Cinderella is the Kent State coach. He's a former Indiana assistant. Do you give him and Kent State realistic chance to maybe just maybe upset the hoosiers in the round of 64? GP, let me tell you about cashing with the flashes. Because in my role for sports line on the early edge podcast, which you can catch on YouTube at 10 a.m. every weekday. You know,

That, you know, I think that a lot of that perception of the blogosphere as one community came out of the 2000 election and the perception of that at the time was that it's a very low stakes election. There's not I myself argue vociferously against that view contemporaneously. But you know, I think that, you know, and frankly, you know, the Iraq War, and I think Mickey couch something there in that, you know, not only were there a lot of democratic supporters, the Iraq War, there were a lot of people who were sort of sympathetic to some of its press, premises, even if they sort of had the good judgment to back away at the last minute. You know, I mean, and that was essentially the Clinton position. You know, Saddam is very bad. He's threatening in some sense to the United States, but there was something kicked in. We're like, we're not going to go further. But once the Iraq War happened and turned into a complete fiasco, you know, I think that, but people continue to dig in on it. And leading to sort of a very sort of bitter and divisive election in 2004, and it's all because it's not like, you know, John Kerry is more liberal than gore and a deed carry was formally a supporter of the Iraq War. But I think that the sort of war coming out so badly, but sort of the sort of pro war side being just as again the or at least I should say that I guess maybe that's the difference that for the most part liberals who were sympathetic to the war supported at had pretty much backed off by 2004, whereas sort of conservative supporters of the war were as dug in as ever. I don't think that's a complete explanation. But I think that's at least a substantial part of that. That polarization stopping over such a sort of high human stakes issue. I guess you're right. It does predate Twitter. Let me just give my personal perspective, which is not any way universal, which is, why does everybody on the left hate me? And I like this, I'm a wash the monthly person in the classic watch the monthly piece was, you know, there are Democrats are wrong about this, okay? Or the Republicans are right about this. That doesn't mean that Charlie's wasn't a Democrat. He's a died in the wool new dealer. Has his subsequent books have proven, but that was the sort of additive. That's what you got out of bed in the morning to do. And I was shot and then so I kept doing that. I like to trash the left. The right often seems like it's either so obviously wrong that it's not worth trashing or they're all my friends now and I don't trust them. And I was shocked for first Brad along has some beef with Kinsey and me that predates all of this and I've never understood this. He's always hated me. And he really hated kinsley and I don't I don't know why. It also predates me trying to destroy Ezra Klein's career. It's something and I don't know. I like his, I think he's a, when he's not attacking me, he's a great blogger. I was also shocked that the new republic when Friends of mine and at the Washington mostly were suddenly attacking me as if I was just this figure where there's worth attacking. I'm on your side. I like social security. I like national healthcare. I just like sniping at Democrats. But the venom that was there was sort of surprised me. It wasn't our good colleague Mickey has gone astray. It's like cows this asshole is saying this. And where does that come from? I don't know. I could say some very self serving things. And I guess this is a great opportunity for some stuff. Now I'm going to avoid them. But I guess if you were a, I'm trying to take somebody, people who are perceived as apostates get treated very badly. JD Vance is a classic example. I think JD Vance is a great guy. I think he has potential to be a great president, but the left thought he was something else, and then he drifted to the right. And they will never forgive him, because they thought he had him. Now they think he's become a corrupt Trumpist. That's going to play really well in our comment thread. So when the. Right half apostates have gone to the left, who they hate. Trump, Trump sort of makes that debate completely. He destroys that debate because the debate is not whether you depart from right-wing principles, but whether you are pro Trump or anti Trump the person, and so Lindsey would be an impostor except if she's not really an unposted ideologically, she just hates Trump. So I don't know. I think there's something about. The drawing of partisan lines that led to, that happened sometime in the early 2000s, I think, because you're right that led to this. The 2000 election was considered a nothing burger. It was, I wrote of this long agonized series who should I vote for? Don't rush me. You know, and it took me like ten installments to figure out to finally vote for gore. Because Bush was going to do this benign sort of moderate Republican and gore was sort of, I

John butler posting like a 28 and a half inch vertical was concerning while also being a 174 pounds at I believe he came in at 7 two in shoes. That is very light. And like a very strange, he came in at 7 one inch shoes. I'm sorry. But it's a very light combination without much vertical pop and like vertical power combination. That feels very difficult to make work. At the NBA level, I've never been quite as high on John butler like for the love of God, John, just please go back to Florida state, continue to put on weight, continue to put on like strength and continue to improve your three point shot, like all of that. I think he has a chance at some point, but nowhere near ready, I think. Yeah, certainly agree with that. And again, he's a 172 pounds, 173 pounds. He weighs the same as I do, and he's 13 inches taller than me. And I end up on my ass every time I play basketball. So if he ever drives to the rim, that's not his game, I understand that, but you got to have at least on the defensive end a certain amount of strength. He's nowhere near ready for that type of competition. Okay, do you want to do some of the G illegally camp? Just real quick. The reason I don't want to spend a crazy amount of time on the G legally camp is that, you know, it's a group of players that I love and that I want all to succeed, but from what I was told by NBA evaluators that saw the camp, it was not the strongest group of guys that have a chance to play at the NBA level. Three guys that stood out that teams thought had a real shot where Marcus sasser was by far the guy. Anytime I talk to teams about who their best players were at the camp, sasser got brought up. And it probably had due the fact that he blew up in his first game on the Monday and that really helps these guys a lot of the time because, you know, teams want to kind of zone out for the second game and first impressions or so valuable. Especially in the combine, by the way, where teams like literally and evaluators literally packing up during the second game on Friday of the combine. But Marcus sasser really stood out as a guy that teams thought had a chance to get your acted if he ends up going through with the process..

caps your Russell 2000 looks like it's going to finish the day down by about 9 tenths of a percent It's not too early for us to talk about year to date where we are because I think a lot of people are thinking about okay when is the right time for me to start deploying cash and when are we going to actually see the bottom in this equity market the S&P 500 down 8.8% so far this year the NASDAQ though down 13.4% I'm glad you touched on the NASDAQ I want to touch on that just briefly before we entered today 15% of stocks were only above the 50 day moving average Only 35% were above the 200 day moving average when it comes to the NASDAQ 100 That sort of shows the breadth of the sell off that's underway Let's get back to the daily moves for our radio audiences We do the winners and losers on a sector basis And while it's a lot more red than there is green but it feels a little bit defensive We've just durables household products food and beverage those are the sectors in the green up about three tenths to 6 tenths of 1% Everything else that was pretty much in the red and you're really getting this rotation out of technology Tim That is what you mentioned It's software and services It's semiconductor equipment and it is autos this remains Porsche are still burning in the Atlantic Ocean And it was a difficult day in equity markets I did find some gainers though we have Dollar Tree That was your biggest gainer in the S&P 500 That follows news that former CEO bob sasser he's going to retire as executive chairman analysts say that raises the possibility of a settlement with activist mantle ridge traders welcome that news with open arms Dollar Tree soared more than 5% Ford also had a good day sure closed just below 3% higher and we all know why that's after a Bloomberg news scoop that the company is considering ways to separate its EV business from the legacy business that boosted Ford shares by about 2.8% and finally bloomin brands you may know them as the operator of outback steakhouse The company reported earnings and the numbers were strong and importantly the outlook was good as well Do they break out how many of those onions they sell How many they sell just to Katie They did not Maybe I need to control F on the earnings release But it was a good quarter overall and that was good for a 7.6% Yeah absolutely Average price of bloomin onion You know I picked a few decliners that are all down double digits We've been talking about them all day Earnings related row two having its worst day since 2018 shares just tanked after that first quarter revenue Forecast fell short fourth quarter revenue also fell short of ano's expectations down a bit a little more than 70% 77% excuse me from that July 2021 high Redfin finishing the dad down 20% company forecasted net loss for the first quarter It was larger than the Bloomberg consensus Handful of analysts cutting their price target as a result a couple downgraded their rating on the stock And then we got to end with DraftKings down 22% on the day today following the most in almost two years Price target achieving Morgan truest Look you guys talked to Jason Robbins We played a little bit about interview a few moments ago It was interesting that he said that the company playbook It's still working for him You know what's interesting though Tim is we're going to fold in DraftKings maybe Roku back on over into the world of bonds where I'm going to try to go next Is there is a very big repricing in all the analysts on the street who cover those big socks that growth at any price is no longer the game in town And you do need to show some sort of path to profitability Why Because yields are still the focus And this of course is sort of where yields are on the week And what's interesting I'll just quickly point us to the front end of that yield curve Yields are actually down three basis points on the week That's the first time we've seen a weekly drop in yields really all of this year Romain is the narrative has been Gil tire Yeah yields higher as of course everyone started to price in what the fed is going to do I guess the question is the geopolitical issues that seem to have driven the flight into some of these haven assets how quick does that get unwound if there is some sort of diplomatic resolution to this Yeah and you think about how interconnected all of these markets are right now you're talking about the yields and the relationship the equities when we talk to the DraftKings CEO he said that M and a was going to become harder And while he invested in growth last year investors are not rewarding that now So how then if you bring that across corporate America stop 7 and a start day hurt hiring And start to keep that ball rolling in the other direction I have a question for Katie here I want to answer this question Thank you Katie I mean as our chief Gen Z correspondent who by the way is definitely fit for the military I would like to

It's just not as that doesn't seem to be as crisp in terms of making place for others, doesn't seem to be quite as crisp in terms of getting separation even despite the fact they haven't played as many good teams. Maybe there's something there that we don't know, but yeah, just not quite as exciting. I've gotten a couple market sasser questions here for the first section. Do you have any strong market sasser thoughts? Not overwhelmingly, but I do see the momentum building for people saying like put them in the first round. I'm not in that camp here. Really? A little bit, a little when you fall down the draft Twitter rabbit holes. You find some weird things in there. It's like the dark web. You gotta stay out. Once you get too far down, it's no crawling out of there. There are some deep market sasser fans. I like haven't really fallen in love with them yet, like a lot of other people. So I think the idea here is 45% three point shooter so far on 8 attempts per game. And like a good defender, it's 6 foot 190 pounds. Look, I mean, that guy's maybe a bench card. If it works, like if he keeps shooting 42 to 45% from three, I don't know. It's a really, really tough archetype, I think, to be in the NBA. Real potential second round pick, I think, for sure. Yeah. Not much more than that for me right now, but not someone to write off for sure. We've talked about taron Armstrong quite a bit. I don't know that we need to. Oh..

"Sounding words as sasser total sacramento ascetical and mystical life. That i live my seven days in the world. Between the times. I come into the sacred on the eighth day. Then i take a step up into heaven so that i can see heaven around me. The beauty of it all is that while the enter into the sacred realm really on a sunday. Or maybe we do it daily but it also surrounds us completely saloum unaided in a very real way in our our life in the day to day in the world and what we call the liturgical calendar every season has a moment every day has a purpose. you see it in the liturgy. The hours every hour has a prayer. There's always a movement isn't there. There's always does have to be aware you always hear. Wake up wake up. Everyone be aware. Wake up in that. Calm sometimes i think about liturgical rhythm as punctuation marks and there is a once year easter exclamation point. Daily prayer is a series of commas or semi-colons period is the most important grim point. I would give that sunday. But if i didn't have those organizational pauses then my sentence would just run on like this and it would have no end and you can tell when i was going to start or stop in the very in my life which is expended self and i would die with a sigh at the end. Energy enters my life by giving the in order or structure right pauses a kind of formality. It gives me a grammar by which i can speak. So we're talking about a way of finding a connection. Oh almost like another pair of greece's a connection place for the sacred. And the profane of profane and the sacred i think untold mischief has been done by a an equivocation a two meanings of the word profane. Sometimes we use it to mean not of god not wholly but it's real meaning is set aside from the profane and the world can be holy. The world is wholly. There's holiness in the world but that doesn't mean that there's no reason for setting aside certain sacred places so it by sacred human yucky Then it's already fight for fame yucky. Then i've got to leave the yucky profane world and going to the sacred world. I know they're christians. At tend to live that way but on the other hand it would seem to be a mistake. Not to need sacred moments sacred places sacred persons sacred because this is stepping out of the ordinary into extraordinary. So that when i return. I can see what is ordinary. I'll be very careful not to give anything away. But i knew a priest. This isn't a somebody second cousin told me this. The priest himself told me this that in his seminary class the teacher had them lace on their tennis shoes and run around the interior nave of the church. Why to convince them that there was nothing special about this place and we could bring a can of coke in our hot dog to sunday morning energy while the right response correction to that isn't to say no no that's holy and your life in the world is not only is wholly in both places but you need a sacred space in order to appreciate or understand her to be filled that holiness this i learned from a wonderful little book by joseph peoper on the sacred and profane. But he's pointing out. The profane does not mean the unholy part sacred and profane our divisions within the one holy. God's world we'll continue our conversation with dr fakher in our next episode.

"Just sort of talk about some of the big changes that that have happened because of the covid nineteen lockdown pandemic. And all that. Yeah so yeah all the obvious stuff. Makeup artists cleaning the brushes. And all that. But what are some things that have permanently. D think affected how you're going to be doing business in twenty twenty one and beyond so yeah. I think it was a weird year for everybody and actually closer december. i felt. I don't know like a little claustrophobic about Going into twenty twenty one. I basically had all this time. I used to travel a lot. I used to shoot a lot and try to use my free time for travel. When i couldn't travel anymore As we got into twenty twenty one looking at booking people six seven months out in advance. I kinda almost didn't wanna. I didn't wanna book people and i felt like i needed to guard my time And i only wanted to book people like a month or two in advance and what it ended up a leading to. I called a couple of other photographers on this. And we figured out You know what what. I needed to feel comfortable and good about filling my calendar now. Obviously that's like what a terrible prompt have people wanna book you but At different times in your life like one of my biggest fears is being burnt out from photography. And so what we decided to do was a switch up my booking process to doing a wait list so instead of being available to talk on the phone whenever anybody emailed me we switched to a weightless system. And i say we. It's it's it's just me. I'm i'm known in ryan. I do all the people that i spoke with. So i just take phone calls Once a month sometimes twice a month. And i pack them all into one day and and i only allow myself to book three months out in advance so somebody says at the time you know if it's whatever day it is three months from now you can book with me. Four months you have to stand the wait list until i sent an email out and then you can sign up for phone call in order to book again and this is freed up so much of my time and then the last thing i've done is i've organized my shoots all to be back to back so don't do like when you free what you tell me what we say like are available. I'll put them all together. So it's the same every time for me and then after i'm done with those clients users order albums at the end of the week and then i've got the rest of the time to do stuff like this to hopefully travel when that's available to new course material but as far as you know i just i felt i don't know i i was in a weird place kinda november december and. I realized i needed to make a chance to really really feel good as a result. I more shoots now

Upskilling from Home
"We wanted to talk a little bit today about cove. Nineteen by now. Everyone knows what that is. We know there's going to be some pretty severe probably economic impacts health impacts and societal impacts. We've noticed some interesting things in our podcast data. Actually as we were looking through it the last two days we've had ten x the listenership on our podcast. Probably because a lot of people are at home and they're working from home they have some extra time and of the episodes that have been listen to. We noticed one in particular seems to stand out. And that is the episode dealing with how to get into data science so it sounds like a lot of our listeners. Our time on their hands. They're thinking about maybe a career change or thinking about upskilling themselves as they're at home and working from home and so we wanted to address some of those things train lots of people and fortune five hundred companies across the country how to learn how to be good analysts how to get into data science and so our CEO is joining us on this episode. Ryan Oaks. Who's been in this industry for over ten years? He's trained for over four years and has some thoughts about data science analytics. How to be a good analysts? Some things that most people don't often think about and Some things that you may be surprised are what really matter when it comes to analysis. There's Curtis for having me on the show. It's great to be here as everybody is sitting at home kind of thinking about the economic implications or potential economic implications of. What's going on upskilling and improving? Your skill. Set is a good activity to be engaged in. So why data science right. Why why is that? Such a popular skill and continues to top charts year after year. And as a corollary to that I saw this question on the website core of the other day someone said if I can learn python in a couple of weeks or a couple of months why are companies paying so much for it and the answer is it doesn't matter how long it takes you to learn the skill in fact the technical is really not that important as a CEO whether you program in our you program and Sasser you program in Python or or whatever what I care about and what what leaders of companies care about is. Can you solve expensive thorny problems for me if you can do that however you do that? I'm interested and that's why data science continues to top. The charts year after year is because data science promises to solve big thorny expensive problems for companies case. So here are some some examples particularly uncertain times like this. How do we find cost savings right now so that we can preserve caches much as possible while at the same time not having to let people go? Kay that's that is is painful. No one wants to lose their jobs. No one wants to be the person letting people go. I certainly don't. We are trying to find every opportunity. We can to preserve our team to preserve our cash to preserve the projects that we're working on. So how can we do that? Creatively how can we find cost savings in our company? Maybe their software licenses that were paying for the. We don't need maybe their services we've subscribed to that no one is using. Maybe there are cheaper options. Maybe we could automate repetitive tasks that you're doing all the time. Maybe we can look for ways to help. People accomplish more without any increase in budget or that. Any increase in additional headcount. Those are things that data science can help us do. Or how can I better target my customers? How can I improve my marketing spend? How can I find who's most likely to respond to a particular message? How can I look at? Who's likely to defect and Churn? These are all things that we can look at the data. Science helps US fulfill. And whether you're using excel to do this or any other program. What I care about is the problem because those are hard problems to solve when times are good. How do I know win to hire? And how much should I pay them? And what is the effect of hiring somebody and the effect of their salary on our overall bottom line? How long until they become accretive to the business there's carrying costs as people get up to speed? Then they start to become a creative to the business and so we need a model for these things and say okay. Well we can afford somebody at this rate doing these things and we're going to carry them for X. amount of time. Maybe we WANNA model some scenarios would if they quickly get up to speed. What if it takes longer than we expect? What if we need to move them to multiple projects? Can they handle that so these are decisions that companies are wrestling with that the promise of data science and good analytics in good data? Visualization can help solve so. This is why I think the the skills topped the list. And this is why it's valuable for you to know it's not so much about the technical. It's more about understanding what companies need in are looking for. And how can you use your technical skills? Or how can you acquire the technical skills to solve hard business problems just knowing the technical and not understanding the business problems that keep business leaders up at night will not help you in your career? You need both you need to understand the strategy and the thorny problems that keep leaders up nine and what they're working on and then you need to be able to come to them with the plan and say I understand your problems years some but if you have others tell me. What are some of the problems you're thinking about? What are you working on? Then go find data whether we have it internally whether it's from external sources if we can buy it find it. We can cobble together. Can we simulate it help us find data and then come back to me with solutions and then say okay? Here's how I think we can solve this problem. I ran this model. I did this analysis. I built this dashboard. Open up your model so that I can see it. I can look at your assumptions and I can see. Did you miss anything? Can we trust this data? Kate then we need to talk once. We have a model that we can trust or visualization that makes an intuitive for us to understand and make decisions on. Then how do we production allies this? How do we get this to the front lines so that the rest of our company can use? This can make decisions on this if it just leaves on your computer and your head. It's not good enough. We need to find a way to embed this into applications. That people are already using. Maybe that's that's email it we're gonNA. We're GONNA email out insights. Maybe it's going to be a team meeting. Maybe it's going to be an slack. Maybe it's going to be in salesforce or and hub spot or in. You know something else that we're using all the time but we need a way to production allies the insights that you were finding and get them out to people so that they can make decisions and finally once we've done that we need to be able to track the results. A report or a model or a dashboard is no good. If people can can't trust it one interpret it to and take action on it three. We need them to take action. Reporting or data. Science by itself is no good literally. No good unless people take action on it so as you are learning data science skills. Or you're thinking about how can I improve my skill? Set How can I create value especially in uncertain economic times? It's this it's understand. Our problems. Understand what keeps us up at night and then come to us with solutions on how to solve that. In a way that people can both understand trust in take action on and then let's put a process into place to measure the results if we take this action. Did we get the result if we wanted a ten percent cost reduction did we achieve it? If we were trying to figure out who to hire or who to fire or can we give raises or can we give bonuses or are we going to meet stockholder returns and and our quarterly estimates? We doing these things. Are we offer re within our range of margin of error. These are the kinds of things that we need to do. Okay so as you're learning. Data SCIENCE SKILLS LEARN PYTHON. Learn data visualization tools. Like tableau learn to be great and excel but most of all learn how to solve problems and communicate results effectively. So that would help me. That will help a lot of other business leaders out there so as as you do this look for courses that offer that mix of both the technical as well as the business acumen and communication and presentation skills and I would add to that. This is a skill that is learned over time. So just like Ryan saying if you want to be good at understanding people's problems and communicating with them and really helping them solve those problems and bringing very technical skills to bear in a way that other people can understand. It takes a lot of communication with people and asking them questions and learning how they respond to what you present so be prepared to spend a lot of time talking to your managers your leaders ask for time with them and ask them what their problems are and then bring them solutions and listen to how they respond to your data and that will show you. Maybe where you can be better. A better communicator. A better problem solver and more valuable to to the company that you are working for
