DoorDash cuts 1,250 jobs as deliveries ebb after pandemic
"Not long after announcing decent third quarter results, DoorDash is cutting more than 1200 jobs. The San Francisco based delivery app DoorDash is delivering pink slips, eliminating approximately 1250 corporate jobs, another ripple in a recent wave of layoffs in the tech industry. In a message to employees today, CEO Tony Shu called it a painful decision, saying the company was undersized going into the pandemic and sped up hiring to catch up with growth, but he says operating expenses grew quickly and other measures weren't going to be enough to close the gap. The company has seen record growth and reported orders jumped 27% in the third quarter, Neil Saunders with global data, says today's announcement is a recognition that the business needs to rein in costs, especially important

"Or four years going into. I'm still figuring it out to be honest with you. My first book was different chatter. But the snakehead started as a piece in The New Yorker. And say nothing did as well. And I think it's that moment when you get to the end of a piece and it can be quite a long piece so the piece that I published in the worker in 2015 about Dolores price and Jim McConnell, that was a 15,000 word article. But I had this very profound sense as I got to the end that there were things I didn't know that I wanted to, and that there were stories that I thought I would have liked to tell, even in 15,000 words, there wasn't room for. So I think it's a combination of things. For me, it's are the characters compelling enough that I want to spend more time with them and would hope that a reader would. Are the narrative bones good enough that they can sustain the story over hundreds of pages. And then as the material there. So with the sacklers, I wrote this piece called about 18 months ago for The New Yorker about this family that is widely known as a big philanthropic family, but it turns out that most of their fortune comes from OxyContin and in some ways they could be said to have kind of spark the opioid crisis. The question came up after the piece came out whether or not there was a book there and at the time I didn't think there was because the characters were fascinating the story seemed urgent and important, but I just wasn't sure that I could get into the black box of what was happening with within the Sackler family and their relationship with the company. But as it happened, the attorney general of Massachusetts took an interest in this case and in the sacklers in particular and she has subpoena power, which I don't. And she proceeded to subpoena a million documents from the company. You've got your work cut out for you. I do. I do. Wow. Well, we've managed to talk without revealing any of the central sort of mysteries and reveals in this book. So I will go against my own interests as a New York Times journalist, tell people do not read the obituary until you read the book. The book again is say nothing, a true story of murder and memory in Northern Ireland by Patrick redden keefe, Patrick, thank you so much again. That was our interview with George Saunders from 2017 and Patrick creton Keith from 2019. We'll have more from the book review podcast archive next week. I'm Gilbert Cruz. Thank you for listening.

"Of that book, our reviewer, Colin Barrett, writes that it's a spiky at times difficult collection. But he continues, these are stories worth reading. The best of them as thought provoking and resident as a fan of Saunders might expect. In February 2017, he spoke with Pamela Paul upon the publication of his novel Lincoln in the bardo, which later won the Booker prize. George Saunders joins us now, George, thank you so much for being here. Thanks for asking me, pillow. I think the first question on most people's minds when they hear the title of this novel is I think hopefully not who is Lincoln, but what is the bardo? What is the bardo? Yeah. Well, the bardo is technically just Tibetan word that just means transitional space or transitional zone. So technically, we're in one right now, we're in the bardo between birth and death. But the one that's the title refers to is the one that happens between the moment of your death and then whatever happens next, which is in the Tibetan tradition would be your reincarnation. So it's kind of a purgatorial state accepted in my understanding of it. And my kind of reconception of it. It's a little bit more transactional, a person can sort of progress their way out of the bar just by realizing what they are and why they might still be stuck there. And then the second sentence that Lincoln himself during this period, he's kind of in a transition to, which is, you know, thinking, I suppose it's going to be a quick war. He's going to be a heroic figure. It's going to be easy. And he's just lost his child and suddenly has died and now he's also the same time seeing that the score is not going to be any kind of easy thing and it's going to go on for a long time and cost a lot of what so to get back to the bardo before we talk about the rest of the Lincoln part of it. There's a bit of the sort of personal willpower as opposed to the idea of purgatory where you're sort of not and maybe even kind of like understanding of yourself as who you are and why you're there. So I have to ask, did you are you a Tibetan Buddhist? Yes, and I'm not a very I'm kind of an amateur one. So I quickly realized that I couldn't really, I wasn't qualified to write a book about the bar to which kept strictly to what the text say it is. So I kind of used that word. I guess a little bit as a trigger to myself to make sure that this afterlife state weird, you know? I think the thing I was afraid of is that you'd have an afterlife that was too recognized to be the one that we all think it is. So I kept saying to myself, if I drop dead while I'm writing this book, no doubt, the next thing that happened that are going to be really awkward and surprising. And it's not going to be shaped or it's not going to perform for me. The way that I thought it did when I was still living. So that was one of my kind of trolls. Let's make sure that whatever this barter was, it's got a morphologically and I want it to be shaped really strangely. So the logic is different in some places than others maybe or different for different people. So it's not at all strictly speaking that Tibetan Tibetan borrow. You just made reference to while you were writing this book. You were working on this book for a long time. 13 years? Well, depending how you define it. Yeah, I heard this story that was the inciting thing way back in the Bill Clinton years, just to drop handed remark on my life's cousin that Lincoln had gone into the crypt and interacted with some body. And I just kind of kept kicking it down the road all those years. I had a few that I couldn't do it. Mainly just because it seemed like something that was going to have to be approached pretty earnestly. And I wasn't sure that I had the chops to do that. So I just kind of kept going yeah, that's a good one. And then right before tenth of the summer came out, I kind of had this little talk with myself just like whatever I was. You set yourself down. Talk to myself, bought myself a drink. And this is something that you can want to write your whole life. You've now been through many of the major milestones of life. And I'm old. I have beautiful kids or, you know, everything. Why is this material too earnest for whatever to something? So I made a little contract with myself that I kind of do three, three months of trying to see if it caught fire. And because I kind of want to be that person who on the deathbed or whatever said, well, I had a nice writing curve. I just got a little scared. And I decided it would be safer to just keep doing what I was doing. So it was one of those kind of things. So that was a nice kind of a mid life leap or something like that. Let's go back to that original historical story of Lincoln visiting his 11 year old son, Willie's corpse in the crypt. It's so haunting. What happened? Well, I mean, the sad thing, you know, the parent will feel the lincolns had arranged this party that they were going to have and it was kind of understood to be a way to save some money. And I think also they were a little bit under the gun for throwing a party during wartime. So they came up with this idea of having kind of a different kind of a party and there were a lot of planning and they're having it and just before the day before the two boys William pad got sick, high fever. So they put them to bed and they kind of conferred and a doctor said, well, they'll probably be fine just go ahead and have the party. So they have this party, the marine band, big, big thing. Lincoln and Mary are running back and forth from the party to the boys sick room. And then just so happened, they really took a turn for the worse that night. Or shortly thereafter. And the illness that killed them. So there was some talk in the media about how we responsible it was, and I'm sure they internalized that as a something a bad decision they'd made. This is in February, 1862. Yes. Yeah. And so then you passed away and it was kind of one of the many low moments of the war. So it was kind of not exactly an uplifting idea. But apparently he was, you know, this is his favorite kid and the one that he saw the most of himself in. And so newspapers at the time reported that he had gone back and actually gone into the crypt. And the thing that's intriguing was that said on several occasions. So I kept thinking, okay, I can kind of see the first time. Especially in that culture, pretty. But anybody, you know, when someone you lose somebody, we like to say they're not there anymore. And yet, they kind of are, you know, it's the same body as the same. So I understood that, but then I was thinking, well, what would stop him? Does this say he went there twice? What we're talking in the third time? Some of the answers are obvious. But you kind of wonder what's the progression that one goes through to be so kind of lovably off kilter to go into the crypt, what happens corrects that? I think originally I thought it would be on three successive nights, but that didn't feel as I try to do it. It didn't feel right. So it was one night. So that makes it even more interesting for me like you go in there at 11. How do you get out of the grazer? Do any accounts exist of Lincoln himself talking about those repeated visits to

"I have had a few. Fair enough. But the most part, none of those eventuated for the most part. So that programming because when you were a kid, the pain of being bullied, the cruelty, there was on a cellular level, you didn't want to go through that. So you had to work through that your desire to be yourself was stronger than staying in your false sense of comfort. Like you opened your superhero costume, you were like, fuck it. Sorry, Google. And YouTube. But there's no better word for it. So I think we have to say that we've used that word now, but I can't think of a better word for it. And what we want to do with today's show was Beck and I in this conversation is where can you have that bleep bleep if you see K moment, will you just go after this? I have dimmed my light too long. I have played the game too long. I have masks too long. And I mean, we've all got the story. And so we just might not look like it from the outside, but we see ourselves so differently from the inside. Very much so. I've been with my fiance now has seen to be husband, depending on when this episode does drop, but for the best part of 5 and a half years. I remember him coming home one day. It was the head of Australian summer. It was 38° outside. And I'm going to meet why are you still wearing hair? Because that's what I do. And you went, but you could just take that off because you must be really hot. It was in that moment that I realized that regardless of whether I was going out or not, I would still get up, put my makeup on, put my hair on, get ready, just in case. That was an always just in case. And so those specifics niggling moments of the people around me that go, just do it. Just do it. And when I did post that photo or the first photo and I shared it publicly, both on my personal pages and my professional pages. My mom's comment was quite simply. That's my girl. Yeah. So she's been writing for a while as well. Really, really interesting. Nobody around you was forcing you. They were encouraging you. And I think that's really beautiful. And if you're listening to this as well, because we want you to write down what I always say to my clients and customers and I just filmed a little short clip before here. I was like, if you want to get coaching or if you want to do a course, if you want to do a book, don't go and start something in the issue prepared to change if you want it. And then have the intent and then show up and then actually engage with whoever is giving you that advice. But what I thought was the result of when you do that is an extraordinary sense of freedom because all of a sudden it's like you are in flow because you are not living your life according to because of all these issues. So it's really like shedding so many layers, like a Phoenix rising. So do you feel now the premise of making things easy is really the basis of this discussion. How have things become easier for you that you stepped up to your full self? You know what energetically speaking the whole shit there has been a much in just that flow of energy and the way business has for me business has grown how relationships are flourished. It's opened me up to deeper conversations with people that I never thought I'd have conversations with. I meant I've actually had clients send me messages to just to say thank you because they also have the same condition and they're not prepared to let anyone see it. So it's almost become that, oh, okay, I'm a little bit of a safety net and encouragement for others, but also in doing this. I have to worry about, I mean, let's take it easy right down to sort of fundamentals. I don't need to bother washing and drying my hair anymore. That's a huge amount of time. Not that I did it personally. I was outsourcing it like dry cleaning because I found that quite entertaining. But then really it's back in my day, the hours back in my week of all these things that I used to do. I can now put into other places. I can go for those longer walks, read that book, listen to that podcast. And so it's just in me making me go, oh, my shoulders probably dropped three inches. Just in doing it and putting it out there. It's really hard to describe that huge energetic shift. But I think in terms of if I look at it from a business perspective, I create a business for ten years and the year that I chose to go free, I hit 7 figures, like there's got to be something in that. I think it's probably a culmination of everything. You know, that happened for me when I think my life has been just Nikki. My mom needs to pack imagine she's depicted school lunches for my imaginary Friends because I have this deep intuitive gift that I never really talk about. So I can see in high definition and like a mediumship, but accurate, accurately. And so it's quite alarming and I had to get used to it. But my perception was, you know, you had to be like 60 years old and have a turban and beads everywhere and in the last couple of years where I just, and I'm still working on it this year, we're probably the biggest year for me in terms of coming out, if you like, with my full, you know, we've just got a new trucker hat with ID, GAF, and you can work out what that means later. I'll tell you the way we're not recording. I'll send you one, but that it's an evolution. And I think that's what I'm touching on with this ramble is that you're ready when you're ready. Yeah, you can't force it. No, in the combination. Of that 7 figure and it's sustainable business happens because the foundations are solid because you haven't changed what you're doing. You've just evolved. And that's why I always say to people, you're not throwing the baby out with the bathwater when you work on becoming your best self. It's an evolution. A fake through is switching and turning and trying to reinvent yourself. So I hate the term reinvent yourself. I hate the strong word. I dislike it, because I think we have to encourage people to evolve, which means all the work you've done, all your experiences, all your story, all your hours of doing what you're doing, have built you to be the expert as yourself. You are the expert as Rebecca Saunders. You are doing what you love in the way that you love. So it's a combination of things. So when people say grow fast to 7 figures, whether or not you can sustain that business, that I mean good for you, but I think once you've got there through the foundations, there can't be taken away from you. No, not at all. And it's a never evolving. You're putting bricks on bricks and Brexit is building on that foundation and it's an involvement. You're right. It's not a reinvent. And one of the things that I wrote about, we just pre recording was, I would say, we're addicted to resistance. We assume that there's going to be a roadblock. We assume that it's going to be hard work. So we need to re change our subconscious programming. You know, my whole adage of thought Tinder. So how do you use some of the principles that we've spoken about on radical self belief to be radically accountable for what you think about? Because you don't ever get rid of those thoughts of self doubt. But you see them and you don't pick them up off the baggage carousel, right? Yeah, so I think there's always this element that go around. You just don't pick them up. I am very fortunate in that I don't have that niggling voice on my shoulder.

"Com when this podcast goes live. So without further ado, I'd like to welcome a radical guest Rebecca Saunders who is a master magician at creating videos for incredible people and most importantly today we want to talk about how people are addicted to catastrophizing everything. And her personal journey of radical self belief. So Rebecca, welcome. Thank you so much. What a fantastic introduction. I'm looking forward to this one. I'm very excited to. Now, we first met with a couple of amazing women in nusa at one of my favorite all time restaurants, bistro sea. And we've only just met recently, would have been a few months ago, so just for the audience listening, what I always do is I put my guests in the hot seat and I'd love you just to explain who you are and what your journey has been just a little bit before we dive into this episode. Yeah, for sure. So my name is Rebecca Sanders. My clients prepare to meet us the video ninja. I work with business leaders, course creators and speakers to have their impact on the world through video. It really makes me sort of augury inside to know how many millions of people are going to reach with all the videos that we create for our clients. And so I'm all about making impact and having the right impact on the world. As a bit of a background though, I moved to Australia when I was 22 with not much more than 500 bucks my passport and a dream to live here. I then built my video production company from the ground up to sponsor myself to stay in the country. I didn't do the.

"I'm here with my co hosts Aaron lammer Evan ratliff, gentlemen, hello. Greetings, greetings. I feel like I just called in and this is like almost going out of live show. Hey max, how's it going? What is the show? Who is the guest this week? I have no idea. The guess is weak is George Saunders. That is a great and legitimate surprise. It is a great surprise. He has been on the show before as you guys remember, which was almost 8 years ago now. Wow. 8 years ago. 8 years ago, George and I talked in this tiny little back office at the mcnally Jackson bookstore. And Soho, he was about to go on stage and do this live event and somehow was able to have this wonderful conversation with me amidst all this chaos around us. It's like one of my favorite interviews that I've ever done. I don't know if you guys feel this way, but sometimes with these repeat guests, like you're not totally sure you want to have them back on. You know, it's a little bit like going on like some magical vacation, a second time. It might not live up to it. But I really want to talk to you anyway. So I did it and it was fantastic. Some things about George that you should know, he just released a book this year. It's called a swim in a pond in The Rain and it's based on this class that he taught for years at the MFA program at Syracuse. It's about short stories. And so in the book, he breaks down these short stories of these Russian masters, chekov, Tolstoy, a couple others. And the book is about how to really read those stories and also how to write and also about life and he's taking the idea of that book, which is basically like put this class in book form. And now he's doing it on substack. He just started a sub stack. It's called story club and he's going to use it to break down more short stories and people can also ask him questions about writing and craft and all kinds of stuff. And then he's also going to write himself about writing his first essay for that for story club is about revision and we talked a lot about that essay in his ideas for revision. He's got this process that is very, very simple and incredibly brilliant and is about a lot more than just writing. So anyway, I went back on vacation with George Saunders and it was terrific. It sounds amazing. My only small disappointment is that I didn't get to be the sound engineer producer on this episode, which I was in a tiny office in the basement of mcnally Jackson as people were trying to get in the door and call on the phone. So it's a little bit of a different environment. I'm glad you went back. Yeah, Evan, we could have used your producing skills, man. It was another zoom recording setup, which is really not the ideal way to have these conversations. But still, this one was this one was worth it. We are brought to you, of course, in partnership with vox media, who has started helping us make the show. Thanks to them. And now here's max with George Saunders. Hey George, hey may I say joke? I'm.

"Yeah, the idea of the kind of the universality of that kind of sacrifice. Yeah, the idea that that moment Morse doesn't see himself as different from the girls. They're all kind of one. And so of course, he can't not dive in. Yeah, and I mean, he does have that thought where he says do they think I'm Christ? I mean, that kind of seems like a leap, but you know he's walking past the Catholic school in the beginning and you know I know that George has a Catholic school background and that informs his writing pretty deeply. And so yes, it does seem to be like that he by checking all these things off. He's kind of this is how he's approaching that universal moment where you might even argue that him and Cummings are the same at that point. Cummings maybe just turned the wrong direction and wound up in a field of corn, whereas he's going to leap out over the water. Again, we don't know what Cummings would have decided. I doubt that he would have decided to make the same choice, but the feeling that he's describing, I think Saunders achieves that in the last line, you know, when you question, did he live? Did he die? And you reach the point where at least for me the first reading that the ending struck me is so beautiful. And I think it was for that reason, because it almost generates that feeling. It almost gives you that aha moment. Like, oh, yes, that's possible. And then right after that, you wonder, like, well, did he make it? Did he not make it what happened to the girls race? So you kind of like right back into, you know, Morris is taking. Yeah. Does the Catholic reference this also something sort of Buddhist about it, which is George's present rather than his childhood..

There's also concern about the spread of the delta variance in China, and we know the reaction function that that then could prompt from Chinese authorities. So there's concern about growth in China.

And even those in the sectors where they're concerned around Chip supply shortage the messages that they want to be able to produce more so there's a lot of positive narratives coming out of the earnings season.

"Canola trying to work the entirety of the fight. One thing i noticed last night will last night but saturday night that i haven't seen in a while was canot really with his mouth wide. Open you'll tire to me. I think that was because if i'm right. He was really missing widely in badly on a lot of those shots. And there's nothing you know more tiring than throwing some big massive looping shot at missing and i saw him a little tired. I'm not saying he was gasol by any stretch. It just seemed like. I think it was around six around seven. Slow down a little bit. But i will say real quick on social media front. I notice that for once. I'm used to having the same thing as you like you know. Go learn how to judge. You shouldn't be this not. I had a pretty good split last night. And maybe because i have a lot of british followers on twitter but i had some people like you really know how to score and then of course what the hell are you watching. Are you crazy. Canals killing them. You can't satisfy to can't everybody is a official judge that should be judging. B.'s fights themselves and being paid. Let's talk about saunders. And how he didn't come out for that ninth round now my take on. This is like look at saunders. Injury was clearly serious. We learn after the fact as you reported. Speaking eddie hearn. He has fractures in his orbital. Bone he's going to have released as we record. This probably has had surgery already and we'll be headed back to the uk on wednesday going to be on the shelf for a very long time. Anyone that knows boxing. Those those orbital bone injuries are serious. Kell brook. I broke his orbital bone against lofton. Did it again against aerospace. He was never the same fighter after that. But billy joe saunders. Mike opens himself up to criticism for not continuing because of his big mouth because he has said in the past that he would never do exactly what he just did very recently late last year. Billy joe saunders. Very public about daniel dubois decision to take a knee and not continue against. Joe joyce daniel dubois. Who had almost the exact same injury as billy joe. Saunders suffered there so while. I don't think billy joe saunders has anything to apologize for with injury like that. Maybe he learns a lesson that you know that injury is real and you simply can't fight through it. It's a lesson pearl outer fighters. I think and you'll find yourself to criticism like you said when you say something like that and then it happens to you but you know in real time when i was watching. I was definitely surprised if i was being stopped considering how close it was. I didn't think it was a bad is necessarily even without knowing knee injury all the closed and i said to myself ok. Canola just gave him an absolute whooping. And there's no way what is gonna come back now. Turn the tide. So i'm of the opinion of this is a dangerous sport..

I'm not dying to see plant versus low like it's relevant. I don't know that it's the i'd still like to seek an elegant often three. I'd rather see plant kamilo than the third love. And i say that because to me boxing history is important and you can do something that has never been done because we created a wbo belt twenty years ago. It's the only reason whatever the reason the point is even in the three belt air there was never an undisputed supermiddleweight. Champion kinetico alvarez. Is the number one star in boxing. He's a pound for pound number one kale winston undefeated guy with a good record against some good opponents. he's got a world title. The undisputed title is something. I always say this. If it was so easy to do everybody would do it. It's hard it's frigging horror undisputed and and nello is on the path. If you win saturday there's one more one more to do it so give me that fight. That's a very big fight. It's a big freaking fake. Sell seventy thousand are sixty five thousand for canal to fight here in texas against an unknown. At least to the american audience british fighter. What do you think they could do against a guy like halo plant who's from tennessee. Amid west american amateur quality fighter now a world. Champion i agree. That's a big deal. That's a much bigger. In my opinion in the united states can oliver's says plant. Then saunders i just i just worry about the finances i zone i think is going to do really well on this fight. Both in the us and the uk where they are now established and they're gonna wanna throw a ton of money at a plant versus shows. They're not gonna want to have camilla and it's like let him walk away. They don't have rights to him but they're gonna make it financially unpalatable for him to walk away. And then we'll because i mean we've seen some weird out of people get on me for some of the criticisms i level it at pbc fighters at times. But we've seen some weird things happen like shadow to tom brown for some of the craziest fucking comets. I've ever heard in my life about how people prefer to see. You know jamaal charles. Oh versus one montiel. I mean it's like the whole thing is is just crazy. I just some weird things happen on that side of the street. Where like money doesn't necessarily talk and prestige doesn't necessarily talk every time there have been a few guys that have been affiliated with. Pbc and al hayman who have been able to take a walk and get bigger deals on on other platforms. Jesse vargas did it and made a lot of money fighting in some zone fights and there's gonna probably be back on his own way during the year. Daniel jacobs same thing so it's not unprecedented that a quality guy who is advised jacobs also was kind of hbo for awhile..

"saunders" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"That. And billion maybe takes that to heart. But there's a difference between trying to do it and taking it. Heart and actually implementing it doing that against a multidimensional fighter. Like canelo is a whole different ballgame. I'm not in any way downgrading. What fury did against wilder by. I think we can agree that. Wow there's a much more one dimensional fighter thinking mellow is. I just don't see even if he tries to change it up and go at him. That's like walking in my opinion because of his versatility as like walking into the propeller he's going to have to take out of his comfort zone. And i think that's what some of this this week has been about in the last couple of weeks trying to get under the skin but then a lot of guys have tried to do that dating so it will joy mayweather triple g. Go down the list. I mean even like kovolev to a cola daniel j because they had a little face to face pushing match at the way in like everybody's guys have tried that with canal brunei's fourth covered a lot of fights. I mean the guy. Fawkes promoter hated me. He's unflappable fellow. Alvarez is one of the most mentally strong fighters not just of since i've covered boxing. But even when you read about other fighters he just has something in his mind. He just has that unbreakable. Like no one's gonna mess him up on his game plan. I mean even with me. When he was a baby and he lost the fight he never liked. Got out of sorts in that fight. Floyd didn't really rough limb and or or get him off his game or make him do something that was unusual or anything like that Kelo knows who he is. He knows what he can do as very confident. And i don't think. Billy joe centers. Do anything no matter what he says or does in the buildup to this fight. That's going to take him off his game plan. Part of that's because of canal zone Mental focus part of. It's because of the team around him keeps in that way you know he knows. It's his event Billy is is You know you gotta have two guys in the ring. But he knows he's coming to see him nothing he's gonna do. No threats of leaving texas because the ring was two feet different than what he wanted or or anything like that. I just don't see it. Not to look past billy joe saunders. Let's look past. The balloon does that we can do that. Kells made it clear he wants to win. All four pieces of the super middleweight title. Become the first fighter to ever win. Four belts that means beating caled plant. I don't have a lot of confidence. That fights going to happen in september. I gotta be honest. let me tell you why. Look it began to germinate for me last weekend. Maybe before that but last weekend when when kayla plaid today interview on the areola pay per view. brian kenny. Our good friend was trying to walk him towards like a conversation and he really wasn't going there like he wasn't willing to even say can lows name. I don't think and that kind of struck me as all he has said that though. That's not like i mean. I've interviewed caleb in the recent past. And he's what i'm saying..

"saunders" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix
"He's like you want twenty two. I'll give you twenty two. And i'm still going to beat your ass. Just ask you this. Is it not insane that the ring size is variable in a fight like i know in baseball parks have different dimensions but those dimensions don't change from game to game. They're their uniform. Could you imagine like the lakers saying okay if you come to l. a. You have to play on a smaller court or the cowboys. Say our fields going to be two hundred twenty yards long. It is it. Not a little bonkers. It's a little bar said. Boxing rings can change in size based on the fights. It reminds me of one of the great scenes in movie history. I'm sure you've seen the movie hoosiers. Yeah when when the coach gene hackman the coach plane coach taken the small town team from the little high school gym and into this big giant arena for their big high school tournament and tells the kid on the team me the tape measure and he goes any measures. The rings are the basket ten feet. I mean it's a classic thing and point being as you play in the ten foot ring in our little dinky. Jim and you guys got this far. We're going to do the exact same thing. It's just a bigger of tenants in a bigger stadium. So yes it's a little bit weird. But i think one of the reasons for that because unlike in the nba or the nfl or major league baseball where things can be uniform. Boxing is a hodgepodge of state and local commissions tribal commissions other countries all around the world and they have different rules and different different abilities to provide a certain assets to the event ring. Size may be one of them. It's you know not. Everybody has a boxing ring laying around so there has to be some kind of variable. Maybe not that big because if you look at the texas rules which you know. I actually did this week. When i was writing about this ring. Size situation if you there's very specific in the texas department of licensing and regulation which oversees combat sports in this state where they say boxing ring can be their discretion less than sixteen by sixteen inside the ring and no more than twenty four by. I think it was twenty four twenty four on the inside so there's wiggle room because rings are different. It's not a uniform thing. So i get that. But in general they should basically be twenty by twenty wherever you are. That's what they are in the uk. That's what they are almost every fight. I can think of in nevada for example. Where have you know a lot of the major fights. I believe the same thing in california. At the end of the day it would have been twenty by twenty. Billy joel reyes to nello said you know what go screw yourself. I'll give you twenty two twenty two. And i'm still going to kick your. I get the the fractured nature boxing. And the fact that each state has its own. Set of rules makes problematic..

Ray fay ray more people know she's more easily, you know, in definable. She she's the most famous scream queen of them all if you want to get technical. And Robert riskin probably considered the father of the romantic comedy. So they were quite a couple. I mean, men loved fay ray before she was with risking. She was married to a guy named John monk Saunders who was a Rhodes scholar who wrote the story for the first best picture Oscar winner wings, he ended up taking all of her fucking money and kidnapping their daughter. Jesus, later fay ray has a love affair with the playwright Clifford O debts. He's no slouch. And then she starred on stage opposite Archibald leech, and he fell head over heels in love with her, and this was before he changed his name to Cary Grant. Gary Cooper was hot and bought all the Fay Wray. They were in a few films together. But Robert risking a little less recognizable, but like I said, he penned great stuff. He wrote the Frank Capra movies meet John Doe, mister deeds goes to town and it happened one night with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. He actually invented the term doodle for mister deeds. Actually, when Adam Sandler remade mister deeds, he kept enough of the original script to give Robert riskin a screen credit. It's pretty cool. But brisket was no slouch himself. He had a lot of pussy after him. Loretta Young Carol Lombard, who Clark Gable went bananas for and when he died, still wanted to be buried next to her, even though they hadn't been together for years and Clark cable had remarried after her.

The Profound Upside Of Self-Diminishment With George Saunders
"George saunders. Thanks so much for coming on the show but it thank you for having me. What a pleasure. I was telling you before we started rolling. I'm almost finished with the brilliant lincoln and the bardo som- really and thrilled that we're able to get you to come on so i have a million questions to discuss. The first on my list is used a term with my compadres my comrade dj who is producing this episode of the show. You said you've been thinking a lot about what you call the unified theory of brain. What is that. yeah well. I was thinking about it because i read michael pollen's book how to change your mind and so he talks a lot about the state of the mind on hallucinogens. And then i'm always thinking about the changes in the mind underwriting. When i'm writing what's going on in my head because i noticed that it makes me happier to right after the fact somehow i'm just in a better place even if the day's been kind of crummy something neurologically is going on this pleasurable. And then also you know with that lincoln book. I was thinking a lot about death. And what happens in those moments. Which even if you're a spiritual person to some extent physiological thing is happening at the end there. So i'm just kind of interested in the idea that at some future time we'll be able to say this is what your brain is doing as a is. This is what your brain is doing when you're creating art this is what your brain is doing in. You're meditating and to me that seems like not merely academic interests. It's everything really. But i don't have any answers yet. I just had the intention so the thinking is if we can get this unified three sixty view of what the brain and the mind or doing or actually in specifically referring to the brain in these key activities of our life that could lead us to a better understanding of how to live a better life all the time in every moment. I think we're doing it all the time. I mean i'm sort of even at sixty two still stumbling towards some idea of how to start the day how to get into it what to do during it. So that my experience stays within certain parameters that and i m we might call that being happy or being whatever so yeah. I think that's the idea. I think we actually people have been doing it for thousands of years but they may be having been able to use the scientific angle. What do you do to keep yourself within certain parameters that might be called happiness and outside the is unhappiness. What are your modes for me. Writing is real real. Big one. I try to do that much as long as i can every day. Four or five hours six hours and then also a buddhist. My wife and i are buddhist. So we've been involved in meditation at sort of different levels over the years and those are the two things that i know how to do. And i think they're related somehow. But i am not sure how. I kind of know that the more of those things i do and yet him in that kind of classic. Mode of going yeah. I should do more of that. I would be happier. And yet somehow. I i don't Very familiar with that with conundrum. Okay so i have a ton of questions. Though based on the foregoing. So the i want to get to the buddhism in a second because obviously that's the primary obsession of the show but when you talk about writing as something that is happiness producing i start to feel very guilty because i experienced right as the worst thing in my whole life except for like a few minutes. A few seconds of you nanoseconds. Where i understand something or phrase something correctly or somebody tells me like something i've written but the rest of it is delicious and i know i'm not alone on this because just to give you some examples. There's that famous quote from who. I can't remember. Nobody likes writing a book. Everybody likes having written a book. And the other is philip. Roth who after he finished his final novel. I believe put a sign up on his computer that said by long struggle with writing is over. So what would you doing that. The rest of us are failing to do. No i mean. I don't think well first of all only really been a pleasure for the last some number of years. When i was younger it was just torment and all that i think the only thing that's changed for me is that of written enough stories where i kind of understand that a period of frustration self loathing is part of it so when i get there i don't really believe in it. I feel like i'm being. I'm having a kind of emotion but also got a little bit of on oregon and say oh. Yeah this is the part where you're filled with self loathing or you're you're frustrated. You know this kind of two levels of torment. In an emotion one is the emotion or the feeling and in the second has come from believing in the feeling as being something permanent or real so for me. Now get to a place. I mean i'm there now with the story. I'm working on head to trash the last four pages and i'm kind of at a loss and i'm feeling a little bit inadequate and a little bit frustrated but there's another little voice going. Yeah that's how it always is. This is the part work. It's good so. I think it might just be the exhaustion of of experience and then to there's something about my process which is really i think because i'm a little bit of an unclear thinker. I've had to develop this method of revising its really rigorous. It has a lot of rewriting ridiculous amounts but knowing that's the way it is. I'm a little patient with it and that becomes part of the fun ago. Okay i'm probably about a third of the way through this really really long thing that will eventually produce something good. I guess it induces the kind of patient. So i actually. At this point i really do enjoy it. Anaconda crave to do it and this may be another topic but the state of mind. That i'm in what i'm doing it is i think what i'm talking about when i say it makes me happy. It's something like meditation. And that afterwards i just feel better.

Just capterra women out on sunday and that was ryan saunders. Final quarter as head. Coach of the minnesota timberwolves took over for his late father. Flip saunders in twenty nineteen thirty four year old had a string of injuries to deal with and played many many close games and the timber wolves already have saunders replacement chris finch who was a raptors assistant coach. This season has been given a multi year deal by the minnesota timberwolves to coach them full time. It's a rare move to pluck an assistant from another team.

How to Money
Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?
"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

Charles Yu Talks About Interior Chinatown
"Charles. You joins us now from irvine california. His latest novel is interior. Chinatown at just won the national book award for fiction. Charles thanks for being here. Thank you kremlin. I'm excited to be here and let's start with that. Winning the national book award. Your speech was so great. I just loved it because you used seemed genuinely surprised. Don't what was that moment like for you. I was genuinely surprised. I was screaming. As they're reading the citation my family. And i wear all sort of looking at each other and just yelling and we didn't know what to do and my son after while that i think you need to give a speech and so i sort of pulled myself together but i didn't really because then i proceeded to forget to thank my wife my kids and my parents so a half of whom were in the room with me. It was just awful. You know there's a fine tradition. Though i think of of leaving like the most important people out in acceptance speeches hoax out. I don't know. Do you think it would have been different. If it had been in real life. I guess it may must have been nice to even if you forgot to thank them at least have all those people. Those class close family members in the room with you. One of the weird unexpected. I guess benefits of having a virtual ceremony was that we got to hug each other immediately after and then change back into shorts. And why didn't you think you'd win. The chances are pretty good. When they're you know only a certain number of finalists. that's true. I suppose maybe underestimated the chances a little bit but i i don't know it just seems like something that happens to other people. Well it happened to you. I think deservedly. So this is your fourth book affection and they all have really amazing. Titles which i'm gonna read aloud. And then i love you to start. Walk us through them before we talk about this latest novel interior chinatown so the titles are third class superhero. How to live safely in a science fictional universe. And sorry please thank you which is a collection of stories. I mean just those titles thanks. I do enjoy titles. I wish there were a job where you could just title things. Maybe i'm trying to make up that job. I don't know what that would be exactly but yeah it's fun it helps me both. I think sometimes have a handle on what i'm trying to do and also i just imagined when somebody encounters that title. I'm hoping that they get that feeling of. Oh i want to flip to that page and see. What is that you know. It's funny when you say like you wish you could have a job coming up with. Titles i just feel like i have to bring up the fact that writing fiction is not your first job. It's not your only job that you started off as a corporate lawyer. How did you get from that life to this one. Well it took a while. I graduated from law school in two thousand one and as i was supposed to be studying for the bar I found myself in the bookstore instead. Reading george saunders and lorrimore and and people like that and and just kind of diving into the world of i guess contemporary fiction at that time and just getting really excited about it and i think also procrastinating from studying and so then i I started to write these sort of weird. The first thing i wrote was A love story. That is a set of physics problems like that you would find an undergraduate physics textbook Thought i don't know what this is but it's something to do you know on nights and weekends when i'm waiting for waiting for the senior associate to tell me all things did wrong in my merger agreement so severe that it. It'd be it was just this sort of thing. I was doing on the side for many years. And somehow i was creeping towards this. Tv land without even realizing it. Because a few years ago. I i was at work at the time working in house for a tech company as a lawyer and i got a call to come meet for potential spot on the writing staff of this show westworld and i thought well this is. This is not going to happen. And but somehow they hired me so so that was few years ago. And that's what i've been doing since as my day job

We're doing on underwater habitats so sea hunt was a little ahead of the game after dadi get some basic information from the three scientists on board the cutter. The scene shifts to mike underwater. He's in doubles swimming with a big bag of rocks. And he's going entire inside the scuba sere. The scuba sphere is small diving bell shaped habitat with liquid helium and oxygen tanks. Act out once. Mike is inside. He gets a call from the booth. Lieutenant totally tells him that a tropical storm is heading your way rather than hall him up. It seems that mike is going to ride it out so he strings up. His hammock gets ready for bed in gets into the sack and because he says he can't raid the refrigerator like he normally does. He settled for a bottle of liquid protein. Well you guessed it. The big storm hits and as the cutters tossed about so is the scuba sere. Suddenly one of the tanks cured to the side of the sphere breaks loose and crashes down on the hatch rendering it inoperable. Mike can't fix it and now they can't bring them up and properly decompress. The project engineer vic jennings says it will take a day to make a new hatch. Should they cut him loose. They try to get them off the bottom and ride it out but discovers fear is being dragged it gets caught on a coral formation. Two hundred fifty feet. Mike gears up with his doubles and he has some additional small tanks between the double cylinders. Not sure what they are. But there's copper tubing Spiraling up to the vows on his. Saunders looks like kind of like a still. Maybe it's helium. They never really say as his fear breaks free. Mike reid it along until the cable and telephone connections part and luckily to screw this. Fear settles when the bottom in an upright position. So mike can go back inside and he says that he needs to spend his second night in this chamber of ours. I gotta tell you mike wetsuit. Looks pretty beat up in this episode starting to peel or something like that will now. The storm has passed the cutter realizes that mike is no longer attached. They have a new door but now they have to find a habitat might goes outside and tries to inflate one of his marker. Booties but it won't work at eight atmospheres so he takes out a balloon. Blows it up a bit ties it off to a line and sends it up. Will you guessed it it bursts now. He reverts to filling up a pair of denim jeans tied off at the bottom. I remember this from my time in the navy where you could use your pants. As type of life preserver on. Mike sends the inflated pants to the surface they briefly mark the location before collapsing. But lieutenant totally thought he saw something so they stay in the area back inside scuba sphere. Mike says that he needs to conserve. Air and pray then. He remembers something from this cub scout. Days and concocts a plan to use his wetsuit. Top as a surface marker buoy. He goes back outside. Fills it up and shoots it to the surface and then ties it off to the scuba sphere dadi and or intently scanning surface suddenly dadi spots to wet suit top. Well the next thing we see. Is mike nelson signs wetsuit. Top two hundred and fifty feet dragging a new hatch cable and telephone line across the bottom. He fixes the hatch. Attach is the cable and splices in the telephone. It's cold wet work he says and he's ready to rejoin the human race. Might get back inside. He hits the hammock and sleeps through the hours of decompression. They have to bang on the sphere to wake him up once. Mike opens the hatch up. Pops dotty to give him a big hug. Mike says he must be in heaven. 'cause this is the angel he's been dreaming about what are the best of my knowledge. This is the only episode. That dadi mayfield was in.

The Sodder Family Tragedy: 75 Years Later
"Local officials could explain what had happened and help them understand how they'd lost their house and their five children. But jenny and george were deeply dissatisfied. When the coroner's inquest was conducted it ruled that the fire had been caused by faulty wiring. But this didn't make any sense. Because jenny and george knew for a fact that the lights had been working that night so it seemed impossible that an electrical problem had sparked the blaze. They were also confused by the latter that had gone missing on the night of the fire. They could have used it to rescue the children trapped upstairs. If they'd been able to locate it later. Someone found a ladder. Sixty five feet away from the house in a ditch. The solders never learned why it was moved. Or who had done it without the latter georgia and his sons had tried to use their to coal trucks to climb into the house and rescued the trap children. But lo and behold neither truck would start even though both had been working perfectly the day before and that wasn't all a witness claimed that he saw a man taking a block and tackle from the scene of the fire for context. This is a system of hooks and ropes. That can be used to remove an engine from a car. The thief was later found to be a local man named lonnie johnson as it turned out stealing the block and tackle wasn't the only crime. Lonnie johnson committed that night. Lonnie also admitted to cutting the sada's phone line just thirty minutes before the blaze broke out at this point. It wasn't much of a stretch for jenny. And george to believe that someone may be lonnie had intentionally burned down their house after all lonnie was skulking around their property committing vandalism and theft if he was capable of that arson didn't seem like too far a leap. The problem was they couldn't prove anything. Sure lonnie confessed that he wanted to rob the house but that didn't mean he'd lit the flames. The sada's couldn't even prove the fire had been set on purpose but tips kept pouring in and they seemingly confirmed george. Jenny suspicions for instance. A bus driver came forward saying he driven past a solder home late on christmas eve. He claimed that as he went by he saw someone throwing quote balls of fire onto the roof. If the bus driver was to be believed someone had intentionally set the solder house. Flame perhaps using a molotov cocktail or another explosive. If true this meant that their children hadn't died in a tragic accident they'd been murdered. The surviving solders were still grappling with the possibilities. When they returned to the site turned memorial a few months later it a somber moment for the family a chance to grieve and remember the source of their pain but two year old baby. Sylvia was too young to understand what had happened or why her older siblings had disappeared. Blissfully unaware she played in the yard until she found something that was decidedly. Not a toy it was in olive. Green hard cylindrical rubber object after examining it george determined it was an explosive device and napalm pineapple bomb to be exact if it was indeed an explosive that would explain the balls of fire. The bus driver had seen being thrown onto the roof and it was consistent with the loud thump and rolling. Sound that jenny up in the middle of the night in short lonnie johnson's suspicious behavior. The napalm bomb and the lack of human remains made the saunders. Sure of two things one. The fire was set intentionally and two. They weren't getting the full story about their missing five children. Jenny conducted a series of informal experiments in her wood-burning stove hoping to understand why her sons and daughters had turned to ash all of her tests left bones behind which gave her an odd sense of hope. It meant that her children couldn't have died in the fire. They might still be alive somewhere but with the stakes so high she couldn't only rely on her own amateur investigation. She took things a bit farther to confirm her suspicions. Jenny consulted with an employee at a crematorium after all who would know better
