Trauma Coach Chantelle O'Connor on Regulating Your Nervous System
"Us how you learned a little bit more about how to kind of regulate yourself. Yeah, so I never really understood the nervous system until I started to, I, around a few years ago, I, when I said I sort of looked at my mother wound and I worked with a coach who introduced the element of your nervous system, and I was like, wow, this makes so much sense to me, so she introduced the, she introduced, well she taught about the autonomic nervous system and where we have childhoods certain or certain experiences, I mean, most people in this world will have some trauma now, this is not, it's not, so there's, we will live in certain places within our nervous system, so the very top of our nervous system is the ventral vagal, and that's when you feel very social, you feel joy, peace, you want to connect with others, so when I first started this experience, those things, I experienced them maybe fleeting, but then I noticed they disappear completely, and then you have the parasympathetic and the sympathetic, so I think the parasympathetic is when you are in, you are in fight or flight, so, sorry, no, that's the sympathetic, so the sympathetic is like the middle part of the nervous system, and that's when you're in fight or flight, so for me, I would have like, I would be very adrenalized, and I would be rushing, rushing from thing to thing, doing thing to thing, like not eating properly, drinking too much coffee, you know, making sure I have all the things done in the day, and it was my way of trying to ensure my worth through being productive, and I would live here, and then I would get to the end of the day, and I'd think, I don't know how to relax, I've got so much energy in my body, how am I going to sleep, and this was when I would really start to see problems like within my menstrual cycle, because a lot of it would impact, the cortisol levels would impact my hormones, and then my ability to relax, I mean, even now, I can relax, but I have to really bring myself into like a routine of it, I'm not someone who can just push off very quickly, and so, and then she said about the parasympathetic, which is the dorsal part of your nervous system, this is where you have like the freeze, shut down responses, and that's might, that might be when you're like totally numb, you know, you're completely dissociated, because dissociation is a part of trauma as well, and what she introduced was this kind of map for like two weeks, you had to notice where you were to keep saying to yourself like, where am I right now on my ladder, and I would notice that like in the supermarket, for example, like say I've had like three cups of coffee, and I've not eaten properly, and I'm like trying to do all the things again, and I'm not asking anyone for help, because I have to make sure that I do all of them, and this then, I would say this to myself, and I think, God, I really need to be able to notice that, I could see where I was on my ladder, and there's also a lot of stuff to do with your body, it's not just about recognizing maybe mentally where you are, it's also about noticing where your body is within your, because your body and your mind will work together, so your body will give, and be giving you signs that it's, it's in one of these parts, and I think for me, a lot of like learning how to listen to my body was a big part of healing this stuff, because I live here, I live in my head, I don't live in my body, I find it very hard to come down into my body, so that for me was like doing things such as yoga, recently there's been someone on, I think she's really like changed it, which is the workout, which she does like a lot of somatic stuff, somatic exercises, which is meant to bring you back down into your body, because I think what some people forget is that we have three minds, we don't just have our mind, and that's it, we have our body as well, and we also have like our energy field, so our body holds memories that before even our mind has cognitively processed them, so say you're three, and maybe this is an example, I had like deep sense of dread in her body, and she couldn't really figure out, she knew like her mum had lost her temper with her verbally a lot, and she knew that kind of stuff lived in her head, but she would have this deep sense of dread in her body, and she recognized that, I think her dad shared with her like when she was two or three, her mum kind of would get a little bit annoyed with her, and yank her arm really hard, and that's actually before she could really cognitively form a memory around that, her body had remembered it, and stored it, so also it's a lot about that, because that just to bring back your question, will impact where you are within your nervous system, and where you tend to live, so the whole point of that is trying to get you back up to the ventral vagal, which is the part where you feel, you just feel yourself, you're quite calm, you feel quite peaceful, it's a lot, it's associated a lot with like the seeds, like you're curious, you feel sort of contentment, that sort of thing, and you want to also be connected to other human beings,
A highlight from Bitcoin Hits $30,000 | Outperforming Market
"All right, so Bitcoin breaking 30k, this of course has a lot of potential impact on the market at large and how all of this is shaking out. There's a lot of mixed signals here. We're going to try to break through that all today. You guys are going to love it. My name is Paul Veron. Welcome back in the Tech Path. Let's jump over to one event that's happening right now. There's so many things happening right now. Pretty much all at the same time, it feels like. Jim Jordan fails to win the house again. This is the third vote. Jordan is not giving this up. Remember McCarthy, it took I think 15 rounds to get him certified in to the speaker role. The question is whether or not there's a lot of people that do not want Jordan in. Obviously he is not necessarily a, I won't say he's a positive crypto, but he has no opinion. But the other scenario that could play into this is we could see someone that is pro -crypto still. So you've got a couple of people that have jumped ship, and that is Don Bacon, voted for McHenry. Lori Chavez, DeRaymer also voted for McHenry. Brian Fitzpatrick flipped over to McHenry. This is a new vote against Jordan. And then McCarthy, Jennifer Kiggins also voted for McHenry. Mike Lawler, which we knew about earlier in the week. And then Marian Miller Meeks also for McHenry. So there's some new people within the Republicans now starting to put McHenry up at the top of the list here. Whether we see Jordan or McHenry jump in, McHenry would be very positive for crypto. He obviously, in support of the bills there in the house, most likely would get them through before these sessions close out and possibly get us some legislation before the end of the year. We'll see how that all comes together. Here I want to jump over to a clip from CNBC. And this was with Powell, and many of you have probably seen some of this. But I just want to play this clip real quick. So no, I don't think that there's a fundamental shift in the way that interest rates affect the economy. There may be some differences in this cycle because of what I mentioned. As I mentioned, we are seeing the effects where we expect to see them, which is interest sensitive spending and also asset prices to some extent and the exchange rate, which you're also seeing a strong exchange rate, which is disinflationary. So I don't think there's a fundamental change in the way monetary policy affects the economy. And again, it goes back to just very strong demand. We take the economy as it is. We take fiscal policy and the economy and all the things we don't control. They come to us, and we conduct policy always to achieve maximum employment and stable prices. So we just take what comes. The fact that we have a strong growing economy, a strong growing labor market, and inflation coming down, these are the elements that we want to see that to achieve the outcome we want. So I'm going to pause it there because he feels to me like there's a little bit of double speak there in the sense that there's still pressure from the Fed to continue higher for longer and also to try to achieve the 2 percent in terms of an inflation target. But at the same time, they're still saying, hey, these things are still happening in the economy when clearly that is not necessarily the case. We are seeing problems in the economy that are running up against us, and that's including job numbers, including the crackdown on credit, including the situation with what we've seen on mortgage backed securities. We are going to see a lot of implosion yet to come. And I think this is the thing that plays out. You look at a couple more tweets and this is where it gets confusing, I think, and then everybody's kind of in the same boat. Here's Kobe Easey talking about stocks are falling like a recession is coming. Home prices are rising like there's no recession with an 8 percent mortgage, by the way. Bonds are falling like the Fed is raising rates. Gold is rising like the Fed is cutting rates. And then you have oil prices rising like a major war is coming. That is very possible. And then tech stocks rising like there's no problem at all. So nothing really adds up. I agree that this is something we've talked about for I'd say the last year is that some of these things just don't make sense with what we've seen in this cycle. And remember that we've been on a run for many, many years. Well over that cycle of a seven year cycle before you see recessions, we're into 15 plus years now. And when you look back really at the last true recession in 2008, I mean, sure you could say the 2020 time was a slight one and maybe 22, but that was induced. The scenario will get into what kind of impressions or issues hit the markets to cause this to maybe shift in another direction, including a shift down. This was Garris Holloway kind of hitting on what I think is pretty close right here. Gold hitting resistance at about 1985, big level. Stock market hanging by a thread with a crisis on the horizon, yields continue higher. All that we know. And the Powell, of course, willing to break something, but history shows Fed won't be causes an epic meltdown. That's the question mark right now is what is that black swan that is in a war? Is it something happening in the job market? Do we see enough pressure from inflation and or credit crisis that could occur that really starts all of this to create that domino effect? The problem is there hasn't been major movement. It's in these little steps toward what many people have said is that we're still not out of the woods yet. However, with all of that happening, Bitcoin is outperforming everything. Traditional finance assets in 2023, Bitcoin is smoking the competition as high as $30 ,000 to on October 20th of this Friday moves markets to another correlation is the question mark whether we see it break away from traditional stock market. We'll see. And then right now, about 79 percent and 34 percent accumulated gains on year to date versus Bitcoin and Ethereum. That number is one to pay attention to. Let me zoom in on this chart right here, because this gets you pretty jazzed if you're a Bitcoiner right now. Almost 80 percent up, and that's where we at currently year to date from the beginning of the year. And then Ethereum struggling to keep pace at only 35 percent. And then you see some of the other assets, gold sliding up as 26 percent gain. I'm sure Peter Schiff will be happy about that versus NASDAQ and the SPY. So a lot of traditional finance assets not performing at the pace in which we've seen these risk assets perform. Do we see a structure here where we get that adjustment? Many traders, many analysts still believe that could occur. However, many people are also looking at a short term pump if we do get an ETF. So there's a lot still yet to determine. Watcher Guru says just in, SEC drops lawsuit against Ripple. Some people think this is one of the things that caused this pump, even though I do not believe that. This was the only thing. I think these are a cumulative effect on what's been happening overall from a global macro standpoint. Obviously what we're seeing in terms of conflicts. And then you have things like what's happening in China. Right here. You know, right here is Vale share cap. This of course, Dr. Bear. If you have a reasons I have mine, meaningful moves are always driven by liquidity. And the PBOC injects, this is basically China, injects record amount of liquidity overnight. Remember, there's been another major real estate failure in China. This is one of the big challenges past the Evergrande debacle that's occurred already, which has caused liquidity and also not a lot of trust in the financial system in China. So this is another factor that plays in it when you inject liquidity. Much like if this happened in the United States. Think about this, major bank failures, someone like a BlackRock or a VanEck having troubles. Those would create massive unrest within the population. That's the kind of thing that's happening right now in China. Zero hedge comes in when oil, gold and bitcoin are all flights of safety. Something is about to crack. That's a question. I don't know. I look at this. Yes, I agree with that there's a lot of pressure from the macro side of things. There's a lot of unrest, you know, you know, from when you look at conflicts around globe. And you also look at these cycles. So that's another factor that plays into it. All of this a very interesting time. But there are going to be some people that are being made millionaires in this run or billionaires in this next run. We are going to see that kind of impact. The other thing I want to hit on here is VanEck saying, well, hey, if a spot gets done, you know, in terms of an ETF and it gets approved, kind of zoom in on that for you guys a little bit so you can see it. What would you do? Would you buy it or not? Most people are saying when I say most, we're almost 60 percent saying yes, but there's a lot of people out there that are still in the market that is for the direct asset. Now this remember a spot, yes, that is direct asset as well. But it's a little bit different in the sense that I think it goes after maybe investors that who are not necessarily in their crypto curious or they're just getting into crypto for the first time. But I have a feeling that that will start to create them to quickly move into the markets on exchanges to buy Bitcoin directly and other assets, which I think all coins will be one of the big winners here as we start to see these markets start to shift. We're going to play a few clips here from Dan Tappiero. And this was one with Larry Fink and the ETF. Listen in. The Larry Fink turn for, I would say, institutional investors was very important. Do not underestimate that. Two years ago, he was very clear. He said Bitcoin is a fraud for money laundering or whatever it was. And we're thinking, oh, my gosh, how could he say that? Two years later, he says Bitcoin is a global asset and he wants the ETF. So I would not underestimate the importance of that switch and those comments to let's just say, you know, U .S. institutional capital, but also, I think, global capital. He's you know, it's a 10 trillion asset manager, very well respected. And it seems like every few months we get another turn like that. Some guy who was an ace here turned some. Yeah. I mean, even Dalia, you know, to a certain extent is also kind of repositioned into risk assets. So the fact that we've already seen Wall Street at its best with the big players such as Fink already spinning. Remember, there was a very interesting flip with Fink and that was the ESG issue. That, of course, would play against the potential of a Bitcoin ETF, because remember, so he obviously sees, meaning Larry Fink, obviously sees the future here, not in ESG, but in what we will see. And that is risk assets going forward and a lot of what we're going to see around just crypto in general. Let me play another clip for you guys. This is Tapiero also talking about the sector in general, listen to him. I just wanted a bet on the sector. And that was, so for traditional macro guy, I built a sector bet and it's a portfolio, you know, as I said, of 24 businesses now, 1 .2 billion. And we really are in the middle of this ecosystem, this growth stage. So it was, you asked me the question, how did it happen? Well, it happened slowly and then all at once. And then I put down everything, I got rid of everything I had in the traditional world. I don't have really much exposure in the old world anymore. Once you see the upside potential and how big the TAM, the total addressable market of this space is, everything else is really dull. I mean, you know, bonds and currencies, I mean, moving 10 or 20 percent, who cares? This is like a, this will be eventually a restructuring of how human beings interact with value. That's pretty big. You know, listen, I know everybody watching our channel, you already are drinking the Kool -Aid, most likely, but if you're new to the channel, this is probably an eye -opener for you. You're probably saying, wait a minute, what's about to change? Well, what Tapiero is referring to is really kind of shift of everything, whether it's tokenized securities or it's a blow up of how we see entertainment in the NFT space, it's a blow up on what we'll see in terms of projects starting to come out and a reinvention of the internet. So all of that is interesting because it's happening now and it's happening at a pace. I think I would disagree with him on sense that kind of slowly and then all at once, I don't think we've seen the all at once yet. Yes, it's growing, but it's still under a trillion dollar market cap in a suppressed bear market. So we're not really seeing the all at once yet, but we will. And that's the key that I think he is alluding to, lots of going on there. Let me jump over to this last clip. Actually, I have a couple more clips with him, but one on tokenized assets. Even this concept of tokenizing real world assets, RWAs, which has now become a little bit, has been growing a little more in vogue in the last six months, is still, we went from $100 million of assets tokenized to now $800 million in a few months. But it's $800 million. There are hundreds of trillions of dollars worth of assets. So, you know, and then you look at something like the stablecoin market, which literally three years ago was zero. And last year in 2022, you had $8 trillion of stablecoin settled, $8 trillion. Now, what in the traditional world goes from zero to $8 trillion in three years? At some point in the future, all things of value will sit on a blockchain and be in the digital asset ecosystem. And so that is something, a vision that's beyond just Bitcoin for payments, which is for six, seven, eight years. That's what people were focused on. I don't think anyone would have imagined how big and how fast things have grown.
A highlight from SBF Trial, ETF Progress, JPM Onyx Milestone: The Crypto Weekly Recap
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Saturday, October 14th, and that means it's time for the weekly recap. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link at the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Happy weekend. Today, I have another conversation between Scott Melker and I. This was recorded yesterday morning, and there are a couple of things that I think you will find valuable in here. One, although we do spend a fair bit of time on the SPF trial, as opposed to just giving the play -by -play, which I've been doing on the show, this is a lot more a subjective reading and interpretation of the events, what they mean for the industry, what I think we learned. So in true weekly recap fashion, I think it does a little bit more of that. Now, the second topic that I think will be of interest to a lot of you is JP Morgan and real world assets. We had some interesting news there. And finally, there is a little bit of ETF intrigue and what might be happening on that front. So friends, I hope you enjoy this. Let's dive in. NLW Men, how are you today? I am good. I'm having a great week, better than a lot of the weeks of people we're going to talk about today. I'll tell you that. For sure. I don't think Sam's having a great week. And there's someone else we have to give an honorable mention to who's finally having a bad week. And that, of course, is Steve Ehrlich from Voyager Digital. You guys may not have seen this, but he's being sued by the CFTC for fraud, for neglect, negligence of customer assets, for lying about FDIC insurance, for taking risky bets while saying that customers assets were safe and they were only taking safe bets. He told this to me personally via text message and phone and on interviews almost until the last day. I was unable to withdraw crypto unlike everyone else who could have gotten their assets out because Voyager had done me a favor and put protection on my account that they refused to lift for two months that I asked them to when I saw problems with Celsius. I have a personal feeling about this, but I think the worst part, and Nathaniel maybe is someone who's slightly outside the situation, give me some perspective, but the worst part is that everybody knows that Voyager declared bankruptcy to protect the executives from criminal charges, right? It was pretty clear at the time they could have just liquidated the assets. We would have gotten roughly 75 cents on the dollar, but instead to protect themselves from suits that had already been filed so those would be erased and suits they knew were coming, every insider knows this, they decided to declare bankruptcy. We ended up getting back 35 % of the assets, but really 24 % of the value on the day that it happened. This is a civil charge, of course, so he still is criminally protected, but to see him get in trouble anyways after doing all of that to us just to protect himself gives me extreme mixed emotions. I mean, how do you view this as like, I guess, a third party who was not luckily a creditor to Voyager? Yeah, so a couple things. One is I think that this is going to get us nicely into, I think, the SPF case as well. The consequences for this set of executives is incredibly important for the evolution of this industry, right? And I think that the mixed emotion of it probably should have been worse, but at least there is this set of actions which could result in not just penalties financially and things like that, but real prohibitions on what this person is able to do in markets in the future is important. I think that for a little while, and this is sort of, again, a preview of what I'll say about about SPF too, for a little while, I think that the crypto industry is going to have to just deal with the fact that there is more evidence that it's just sort of full of scams and frauds like the critics have always claimed. But in the long run, what these cases are actually serving to point out is that it's not just the industry being inherently or a priori dirty, it's specific people making specific decisions to lie, to commit fraud, to change balance sheets, to do things that regardless of the industry would be fraudulent, would be criminal. And ultimately in the long run, especially as a new wave of actors comes in, both from the traditional financial sector and a new class of entrepreneurs who are going to specifically, I think, position themselves as the opposite of this generation of folks, it will be important that we have on record that what happened was specific instances of fraud and criminal behavior, not just that's what happens in crypto. It will also be really important as a deterrent for future actors who come in to realize that there is punishment for these actions, even if it's in the unregulated wild west of crypto. Yeah, listen. That's a very important part because we've seen Mashinsky, we've seen SPF, of course, maybe BlockFi, we haven't seen anything yet. I don't know if there's anything to see there, but it is nice at least to see this in the press and that people don't see Ehrlich completely skate by as if nothing happened and there was no dereliction of duty here. What's crazy is the guy hasn't spoken a word since any of it happened. And he had a statement today, the talented management team at Voyager created and maintained our platform in full compliance with the existing regulatory structure. Our team consistently communicated and worked closely with our regulators when literally everybody knows that the risk management team was just left out of every decision. There's been reports of it, that it was literally like, Steve decides we need yield. We're going to go do this. It's Steve. Everyone said that. And so like, listen, his quote is the exact one that his lawyer would write up, obviously, and send out on a PR release and then we won't hear anything else. But these people have to at least be punished in the court of public opinion, even if it's not a huge fine or if he has no money or if he doesn't go to jail, people need to see this in the press. I mean, we saw how much of American politics, like the broad American politics was shaped by the lack of consequences for the financial industry in 2008, a huge part. You're talking Occupy Wall Street on one side. You're talking about the Tea Party on the other. This was a major, major impact because I think that many people who have kind of a historical point of view will point to this as one of the single biggest failures of the Obama administration to not hold to account that group. So yes, it's brutal to live through right now, but it is an incredibly important exercise dredge to actually up and figure out who needs to be held to account for what happened in the space. Yeah. I can't really tell if it's cathartic or just makes me angry and triggers emotions again, but either way, I think it's a good thing and that has to be our natural segue right here into what's happening at the Sam Bacon free trial. I actually signed up for the Wall Street Journal just to keep this update going on the recommendation of Misha, the producer. Never thought I would have a Wall Street Journal subscription again, but it is really great that they're just giving these constant updates on what's happening here. But nobody's better probably for giving the constant updates on what's happening here than you. Let me flip it around to you though. I was thinking about this. I would love, same way you asked me for kind of outside context, I have a lot to share sort of that has a little bit of insider perspective. What's your big broad strokes impression of sort of this testimony this week from Caroline and where it leaves things? Well, to be clear, I don't think it's really anything new. I think that a lot of it aligns with the assumptions that we had of how things were going. There's been previous articles extensively about the misbehavior there, the alleged fraud and all the things that were going on. But to hear it from the horse's mouth, so to speak, is really impactful. And so the levels that they went to just work outside the system to commit fraud, to lie to existing lenders, to lie to potential lenders, to lie to customers. It's very, very clear that this paints a picture of him as an outright criminal mastermind from day one. It's impossible to even look at his effective altruism without looking through it that lens. It really seems like as kind of ADHD and Ritalin and Adderall dependent that he was and all over the place, that there was a very direct focus on a goal that he had and he was willing to do anything to do it. They kind of talked about his utilitarian side of it and that he could lie and nobody else could because he had a goal. I just think from the outside, it's exceptionally clear this guy is guilty. He should go to jail forever and they should throw every book they have at him to make sure that nobody tries this again. Yeah. I think that the story is getting unbelievably clear. And to your point, a lot of it is what sort of has started to become working assumptions from the crypto industry, but that has really been articulated now. So if we look at last week and Gary Wang, I think that the biggest impact on the jury from that testimony will be how early these sort of activities started. Gary being asked to code the ability to the negative accounts all the way back in July of 2019. Gary kind of walking through that first Alameda was allowed to withdraw up to FTX's revenue, which is $150 million, and then that was increased to a billion, and then that was increased to infinite, $65 billion. That story. So we sort of got the dispassionate version of the story that's just, here's how Sam directed this to be put into code, the use of customer money. What we got from Caroline this week is how explicit it was, how acknowledged it was that this was customer money, how she knew throughout. And it was, you know, by all accounts eating her, you know, sort of psychologically that she knew that that was the only source of revenue. And so, you know, it was a hole that she was just directed to keep digging deeper and deeper and deeper. And I think that the sort of, you know, if Gary kind of gave the timeline, what we got from Caroline's testimony was that, to use your word, Sam really was the mastermind determining this from day one. It seems very intentional that it was the four people, you know, the three who have turned basically state's witness and Caroline who knew what was going on, that Sam always called into these meetings. And Trabuco, I've got to be in there, man. I don't know where this guy is, but we can talk about that later. Go ahead. Yeah. Yeah. And I think that the, you know, so you sort of have a dispassionate set of behaviors that are articulated. Then you have sort of a lot of color about Sam. You know, I mean, listen, Sam's, the argument that he didn't know what was going on was completely blown out of the water this week. And I think that the additional layer is we really started to get some worldview kind of color that I think will help jurors explain or understand how this could be. You know, Caroline explained something that had widely been my assumption, which was sort of an ends justifies the means kind of thing, that Sam held himself as fundamentally separate from the rest of the world. You know, this is sort of the biggest, angriest moment in the podcast that I did right after the whole thing went down, where I kind of imagined Sam sitting there, even now, as he had been caught, thinking the rest of the world was just too stupid to take power the way that he knew how, rather than all of us understanding that every day we're confronted with these decisions where we can do the right thing or do the wrong thing, and we decide not because the right thing is easier to do the f***ing right thing. And I think that that's really what was articulated as part of this as well, that he just didn't believe in the conception of lying or fraud. There was no such thing. It was all just, would it be a positive expected value calculation on his ability to impact things? You know, he was willing to play the most serious game and it exploded, you know, and this is one of the possible outcomes. So now he's got to kind of live in it. And I still believe he thinks he's innocent, to be quite honest. And one point that you made is that Caroline really blew a hole in the idea that he was not the mastermind, right? He's saying it was her fault, pointing fingers everywhere else. What it also blows a hole in is the idea that it was a small hole that maybe was a small mistake and then they just sort of, you know, tried to fill it and it got worse and worse and oh woe is me. That's actually to some degree what I believe happened with Voyager, right? I think Steve Ehrlich, and he talked about it even in the past, offering 9 % to our customers. Well then Doge got popular, a million people signed up in a day and we had to find a way to give a million, now 2 million people, 9%. And that sets us further down the risk curve and the further down the risk curve you go, obviously, the bigger chance there is that you're going to blow up, victims of their own success, either the customers leave or you have to go further down the risk curve to offer that yield. So maybe in a situation like that, it was a snowball going downhill that just got bigger and bigger and bigger. This was 2019 before even the bull market for SPF, where he's put these systems in place. This wasn't like, oh, we blew up with Luna, what are we going to do and started committing fraud to fill the hole. This was fraud from the very beginning. It was a criminal enterprise set up to be that way. I think that the, you know, when the dust settles, what will be clear is that it turns out that for Sam, it was Alameda all along. Alameda was his personal fiefdom. It was his big financial power vehicle to do whatever he wanted to do. An opaque set of accounts that he could direct to politicians, to investments, to whatever. And even ultimately, as big as FTX got, it was still a subsidiary in his mind of Alameda, which was his personal power bank, you know, the bank for his power bank. And that's why he never even considered it was just a play to get customers to unknowingly fund his various world changing ventures. You know, I put that in serious air quotes there. Yeah, I know we have other stories to get to, but it's hard not to continue to talk this to death. I mean, there's some incredible highlights. SPF tried Thai sex worker wallets to unlock frozen funds before bribing Chinese officials. He ended up bribing Chinese officials to get OKX and Huobi accounts open that were frozen. I mean, there was literally no length this guy would stop at to avoid doing what he wanted, to your point. I mean, it's really crazy. He tried to go to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and lie to them about an investment. Can you imagine? Yeah, we haven't even Saudi Arabia invested and then found out about this. Yeah, MBS doesn't exactly have the cleanest record of people who double crossed him. I don't know if that's the highest expected value calculation, Sam. No, I mean, what were the most to you? Like what were the most astounding revelations here? Was there anything like this? I mean, these are these are small details, of course, Thai sex worker. It makes for a good headline. But like there are things here that even you were like, wow. I think that the brazenness that I mean, the utter brazenness that like so there was a so John Ray in Michael Lewis's book, Lewis focuses on him very he's more critical of John Ray than he is of Sam, which is part of the reason people are so frustrated. But one of the things that John Ray said in that book is that there are kind of criminals who are born and criminals who are made, you know. And I think that what's interesting and this sort of is what you're saying, you were just painting a picture where for a lot of these institutions, they maybe just got in over their head. They made a stupid set of decisions that had sort of, you know, a cascade of impacts that they were caught up in their own, you know, problems. And that's sort of how it went down versus I set out to acquire, you know, the fact that he was explicitly trying to get finance targeted so that their customers like he was using he was trying to use the US government to shake down finance for FTX's benefit. Right. By the way, that ended up we haven't talked about how that ended up being the single thing that ultimately brought him down. You know, it's it's become not popular to talk about this fact, because obviously in the wake of, you know, Sam and CZ like CZ set the train in motion when he sent that tweet about FTT. Let's not deny it. They were playing a very serious game of who's got a who's got a bigger billionaire D that they can throw around and CZ bitch slap Sam into the next century. And it was because very clearly Sam had been running his mouth all over D .C. trying to use that very inelegantly. I mean, Sam was a two bit mafia wannabe, basically, you know. So I think that the brazenness really shows up. The Chinese official bribe is another area where it's just, you know, it is not a normal behavior for a kid who's in his first CEO ship within about a year of doing it to be willing to bribe Chinese officials. That is born criminal is arguably American ones as well. But we don't need to go there. James Murphy met a lawman yesterday, was on the show, and we're going to keep talking about this. We'll cook through the other stories in a minute, but pointing out yesterday that the buyout of CZ from FTX was with customer funds and theoretically could be for a massive clawback. Right. Well, that's I mean, that's a that's a whole thing that another dimension of this story, which is extremely problematic for for for other parts of this industry. And the other thing. So if we're let's let's segue to the other parts of the industry implications. That's a big one, right. Is what the estate is going to do vis -a -vis that sort of financing. Now, Binance is so on the ropes via, you know, vis -a -vis the U .S., you know, who knows how that'll that'll happen. But the other one is there are now big questions or people starting to ask questions about how much Genesis knew when. Right. And what that relationship looked like. Because, you know, the very prominently part of the most damning testimony from Caroline was that Sam very clearly knew to authorize, you know, to pay back Genesis with customer funds, which creates a clawback situation for them, which doesn't seem that there's any possible way that DCG could handle if that if that comes this way. You know, so. Yeah. And she created seven fake balance sheets to show to everyone, which in and of itself is slipping away for literally ever. I mean, this is a crazy part of the story that the balance sheet that triggered the whole thing. Right. Like I said, CZ threw it down the mountain with his FTT tweet. But, you know, it was started with the Coindesk report that was the sanguinized of the seven choices of balance sheets. The one that they had cooked that was the least damning was the one that still damned them. And it's insane. A balance fake sheet was enough to cause a complete cascade and death of FTX. Imagine if we had seen the real one. Obviously, we can't even imagine. One question that I have, I guess, last before we move on to Bill 2. Do you think that we'll see any of the politicians brought up in this trial? Gary Gensler, Maxine Waters, et cetera? I don't think so, because the prosecution has no interest in doing that and they've got him buried. Yeah, so so so exactly. So there's a couple of reasons why we won't. One is that to when you go after ultimately this the SDNY is not putting Congress on trial right now, even if they'd like to. And when you go after that type of target, you have to have it dead to rights. And I don't believe I believe that there's probably a lot of messages out there where Sam was sort of intimating bribes or, you know, but I would be very surprised if there was actual sort of full on like Chinese official bribery behavior yet. Now, give him one. You just gave him donations. You can do that much easier here. Give him give him one more election cycle. And I mean, listen, even when it happened, I think to the extent that we want to find some solace in this situation, the amount of power that Sam was able to accrue in about 18 to 24 months coming from zero from a standing start is so unbelievable relative to anything we've seen basically in modern history, that the horror of imagining him being able to accumulate power for three or four more years before being found out one another crypto cycle probably would have cleaned up the I wouldn't have cleaned up the balance sheet, but it would have made FTX able to handle things. You know, it would have gone through that sort of like, oh, yeah, they were bad in the past, but like they were able to kind of clean it up. So I don't know if we could take any solace to the fact that this every every day that it would have gone on longer would have been much potentially worse for the world. Absolutely. Absolutely. And the final thing before we move on, how much impact do you think it had on the last market cycle as far as the price of the assets? We saw a revelation that he had told Caroline to keep Bitcoin under 20 ,000. I kind of reread that. I don't think that's really what he was saying. I think he was saying sell, keep selling above 20 ,000. Exactly. So I don't think that he was purposely manipulating the price, as maybe you've seen, on X. But do you think that this behavior and FTT being in the market and all of the VC activity they did with FTX customer funds dramatically impacted the structure of the last cycle? One hundred percent. Absolutely. I mean, you've you've you've even seen post the collapse of FTX how much more organic market movements have looked right. I mean, it just it took out this force like where the even without the intention to goes explicitly manipulate market prices, which, frankly, like, you know, if we got Sam Trabuco's testimony, I would be very surprised if there wasn't some amount of actual straight up market manipulation attempts.

"Would she does the fed interpret market action is the key point I'm trying to do or the quick question I got to ask. That was interesting because she was saying markets are fine right now. We don't see problems. We don't see any reason that with market turmoil that would cause us to stop. And I guess one takeaway from that is one of the levers, the fed polls is by raising rates they want financial markets to react. I mean, they want financial conditions to tighten and that means a higher dollar and higher mortgage rates and presumably lower bond and stock prices than there's a wealth effect through which the economy is slowed. And so I think up until now, they have seen these financial market changes and if anything, our place by it because that's part of their goal is to slow the economy and they haven't seen anything disruptive. The most disruptive thing obviously has been recently out of the Bank of England and what's happening in the UK. But that is not alarming enough right now. I have to say that Janet Yellen said pretty much the same thing in a CNBC interview just a couple of hours ago. At the time, I felt like some in the market might think that they're asleep at the wheel that they're not seeing that some of these things could be visiting U.S. shores, but it seems at least at the moment they feel comfortable. And actually, they're not really being very successful in bringing unemployment up, are they? No, no, you have unemployment at three and a half percent.

"Alison alexander. Saw problem took it upon herself to find a solution in two thousand fifteen. She started doing cross stitch quickly became passionate athlete. She continued to workout. Her body began to change and then came the problem. She was more muscular than she was before and her sports bras didn't fit right. She tried shopping for new ones. But the options available on the market didn't fit. Well either. She was also bothered by the fact that muscular women weren't often showcased at she didn't feel seen allison wanted to change that for both her and women who look like her muscular and strong. That's why she started. Kfi t fitness apparel brand geared toward female strength athletes to launch the business alison turn toward another brand. She had tried to start in two thousand ten back then. She was in the midst of battling postpartum depression and needed something to focus on so she sold some of her daughter's old clothes that she was outgrowing. It took off quickly. She called it. Kids fly to in two thousand. Thirteen allison took her online success and open to boutique and ever she says now was a huge mistake. She quit her job to run the store and soon realize she hated it. Kids fly to faltered after that she went back to work two years later with the bones of a business already in place she built. Kfi notice there of the initials come from the kids clothing line. Kids fly to when pivoting from business that no longer work for her. Allison who also works fulltime as at children's librarian to take the part she did enjoy and explore new ways of doing it for example one store that already offered sports bras was lou limit. It's an incredibly popular brand allison. Says she felt it catered to thinner women. She bought a bra from them and began some online research searching to find a manufacturer she connected with a few of them and had samples eight samples of bras designed to fit women with muscular backs when she became wearing the samples to the gym. Several other women ask about them. Seeing this interest you decide to invest in several colors. One style of bra and watch a jim listed a photographer. Who was hoping to start a portfolio and we'd take product photos for free. Then she created a shabat by sight and chose ship station to manage everything associated with shipping. And by the way. Thank you ship station.

Fit women who competed at elite levels the local athletes and introduced her to cross women who are nationally recognized. She even had whole teams of women order custom process to wear at large cross bit events that were well photographed and that resulted in organic marketing per calf. Now let's talk about start up. Costs low. start up. Costs alison salts personal items for two hundred dollars. She then use that money to buy sell and trade her way up to two thousand dollars which then invested in her first set of inventory was able to keep costs so low because she kept that first collection of inventory small and shopped around for the best most cost efficient manufacturer currently kfc averages a profit of five thousand to seven thousand dollars a month. Alison markets are products primarily on instagram and an active email list. She's used paid ads only a few times and prefers instead to identify influencers. She now has an ambassador team of more than one hundred women to market products. She says micro influencers those with a good amount of followers but not a very large amount. She says they've been a big key to her. Success and to never underestimate someone's value based on the number of followers as kfc has grown allison added to the types of year. She offers she noticed that the business attracts different types of women. Now some of whom don't do cross fit currently offers tank top shorts leggings and more. She tends to stick to basic styles offering them in different colors and prints which she believes encourages repeat buyers these repeat buyers or where the magic happens because it takes a lot less effort to retain customers to acquire them. Once she has a customer she can email them to show off new products. Subtly prompting them to order again a big deal in a crowded online space. She knows that she has customers who bought during her first product launch. Who still shop with her today.

Countries across Europe suspend use of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine over blood clot fears
"Has joined the list of names putting a pause on the astra. Zeneca covid nineteen vaccine. As we reported yesterday france. Germany and italy have temporarily stopped administering the vaccine after a small number of patients experienced blood. Clotting the astrazeneca vaccine hasn't been given emergency authorization in the us yet and it's one of four different vaccines that have been approved in the eu but the decision to suspend its use comes as much of the eu is seen an uptick in cases as more virulent strains of the virus outpace vaccinations. What will this mean. For the overall vaccination efforts in europe the journalist any strasbourg has been covering the vaccine. Roll out from the start and joins me jenny. Welcome thank you very much. Nice to be here jenny. We got the news yesterday. That spain france germany and italy are suspending. The astra zeneca vaccinations but they are not alone last week. Denmark pause the shots than norway ireland. The netherlands followed suit as someone who has been on the story early on. Is this collective movement surprise to you. Well so i think a lot of what's happening is the cautions building right so it we're not saying we're not seeing new cases reported as much as we're seeing countries saying look we're gonna wait for the european medicines regulator to essentially do their review. Were expecting the they're called the ama. We're expecting that agency to say something about it. It's been looking into these reports because it all started about a week ago with some reports out of austria and there was one batch that they stopped you that austria stopped using but they kept using the astrazeneca vaccine. It was really last thursday that denmark norway iceland stopped using the vaccine altogether. It's been building up since then but they're all kind of citing for the most part. I mean it's fast moving but they're all citing you know the same investigation that's happening the same review of safety. So you're seeing a bunch of new reports pile up just a lot of a lot of shared caution. We should mention. Astrazeneca has said the number of cases of blood clotting among people in the eu and uk who have received a shot is lower than for the general population. Jenny we had this big push to get as many shots in arms as possible as quickly as possible but there have been some hiccups in the eu. What does this all mean for the broader effort to accelerate the population. Yeah well i mean it's really bad timing. I mean europe has been sluggish in its vaccine. Rollouts ms we've chronicled in great detail in and then the same company astra zeneca is been under massive political fire for shortcomings than their deliveries. This quarter and next quarter or hundred million doses fewer than they projected. You know that was a huge huge thing late last week again. I mean it's not. It's not good but we also don't know how long all these countries are saying. This is a temporary cautionary measure. We want more information. We just wanna make sure we're not making a mistake. The uk has said keep vaccinating people with shy. We don't see evidence we've done eleven million plus doses of this vaccine. Were not seeing problems if we were we. Would we would say hunting. And even you know. There's an international association has devoted to thrombosis clotting issues and they're saying we don't think we think the cove nineteen with blood. Clotting is actually greater than the use of the vaccine but look if your a country in your people are asking questions is a safe you. You wanna be able to tell them. It is so some people are saying. Look the systems working like the risks are being assessed. And that's what we want. As part of your reporting you have talked to a lot of scientists and researchers during the pandemic any idea about. Just how big of a concern. There is about safety at this point. I mean look this. This vaccine has not raised red flags about severe safety concerns. It's been the large scale. Clinical trials have mainly thrown up results. Showing mild to moderate. You know side effects or reactions. Really they're not even so severe be called side. Effects like soreness in the arm stiffness chills about headache stuff. That goes away over a few days so this. This is all pretty new for this vaccine. The concerns about safety and at the same time though as every as regulators including the european medicines regulators pointing out they see more instances of severe blood clotting in the general population than have been reported in relation to post vaccination. So you know causality is difficult. It's a difficult question. Are people ill. And as millions of people get vaccinated. Some of them will will show problems. There have been a couple of there have been some deaths. Would they have happened anyway. You know causing showing link between the vaccine and the illnesses and the conditions can be very difficult especially out of clinical

"On the same brain systems in the exact same way as drugs or alcohol so people can very much self medicate through daily. How early are we seeing problems develop and kids? Well, this is one of the behaviors that can start quite early. I mean, you know, almost every house has a deck of cards or dice and many people myself included. Have learned to play cards or decent counting games. You know, with my grand parents at a very early age playing hard for you. Nope. Enea Enea point what we see when we talked problem gamblers that that if they're in treatment now What did you really start came with seriously for money. The average North America you you you want wouldn't get for for for men and women. What would your award you guessed? I would think late. High school early college 10 years old for males, 12 years old for females. What this is when you talk 12 years old for females when you talk to problem gamblers in treatment, and you ask them when they started gambling seriously for money. You know what? What is your first memory of? You know what? When was that? First bet that really that that first rush of excitement You felt they report extremely early. And we know that's actually a big predictor. We know that the early start to gamble, the more likely you are to have a problem and again that that tracks with Drugs and alcohol and smoking and things like that, But, yeah, it starts so much earlier than people think. What are they gambling on it at 10 and 12. It could be anything from Pokemon cards. Obviously, sport is very popular. Okay, the top four things the kids gamble on before the age of 17. Our lottery sports. Personal games of skill and cards so I can hit the ball farther than you can know. You can't Yeah, and again, you know, gambling is part of our culture. It's part of growing up, you know, learning how to take risks and judge things so I love that gambling. In fact, a lot of it, although it may not be desirable is not necessarily pathological. But we do know that their early start, you know, for first, some small percentage of kids do start that early making get hooked on that rush and can lead to some, you know down the road can have devastating consequences. So the thrill of winning at that early of an age Really defines them going forward. Yeah, I think that the prototypical story would be the kid. He goes with his ghost in track with his uncle. It's also gives me five bucks. And he puts it on the red jockey because he likes the color red. Okay, 50 to 1. Long shot it comes in. So now you know, he's now got, you know $200, and he's up on his uncle shoulders And there's that real that excitement that Every hooping and hollering and clapping. And, um, um, they may chase that same high for the rest of their lives. I'm reminded of that scene in the Bronx Bronx tale where the Little kid's sees throwing craps. And winning and all the guys are high fiving him anything. She's the big guy in the neighborhood for doing that, Yeah, For most kids, it's not going to turn out that way. But, you know, we know that for some kids it does. Now the first experience I really had with gambling ever. And this is why I said late high school early college Woz and see Double a pool. Our pools considered gambling. They are considered gambling. And it's interesting to think about a lot of our gambling law really takes back toe, You know, 17th 18th century English law. U S law basically that the quick primer for everyone, especially folks. They're playing on the Internet. Right now, you know people they're in office pools isn't unless it's been specifically made legal. In your jurisdiction. It is illegal. In other words, US law treats gambling is a vice where it's not permitted unless it's specifically Li life. Look at all these questions about is my Internet book illegal and can I play poker on the Internet ball block and unless you can show me a specific long where your Legislature has said this is Specifically legal than it is presumptively illegal. S so yes, the pools that you participated or probably. Now what you know, it's seen by law enforcement General is a victimless crime. But, you know, technically, uhm yeah, there are laws, eyes is pretty far out of date. When it comes to what people do? Yeah, because I mean, we've got so many things to talk about this hour between Internet gambling and casinos, which are now everywhere. They're not just arena in Atlantic City and in Vegas. We have more than I can count within a few hours of driving. Yep. E mean I could get to one soon if I needed to. Um, And I mean, this is therefore it's It's hitting all different ages. But you know, kids can play poker on the Internet for real money. Which is it Zvehr e scary stuff going on right now. Think, gambling his his change in her in our culture and society over the last 20 years and on the hell we haven't quite caught up to some of the impact. It is to say we've always been a nation gamblers, you know, risk risk taking an entrepreneurship or are part of the American didna. You know, we we do tend to take risks for the other folks, and I think that that leads to some great things. But the downside is gambling used to be fairly rare, and what was available was generally small stakes. Now gambling is everywhere, and you can bet for incredibly high stakes.

That number shrank in the last week, and it's rank the week before that, as well on this was surprising, everyone said, because of the new round of lockdowns from everywhere from New York and California that we were going to see a huge, huge spike in unemployment.

Victoria and you South Wales. It's been quite a long time since it's been a lot of virus circulating in the community that we know about at least and I know from my own experience living in Queensland that I think there's a lot of complacency that's crept in and it's probably a good time to just refocusing guy this isn't normal life. We still got a kate how God's up try and it could come in to come in on a ship from overseas. You've already seen problems in western. Australia nobody is particularly safe the risk of spread by open borders and I was extremely low, but it does mean we've all got to be careful moving forward. At some point, international borders are going to have to open up we're going to have to learn what covered normal actually means now new South Wales are ready to move in. You saw the football matches you. It doesn't feel to abnormals in in in in New South Wales, and that's the real feeling in Victoria but I think those two states are better prepared for this. Than the other states and we've got to open up the borders and people just will have to be more careful definitely in Australia where in a much better position than other parts of the world where covered normally is no in knee normal live, and in the states, this disease control have expanded their definition of what a close contact means in terms of someone's ability. To spread the virus if they had this definition by the way, these definitions are fairly arbitrary based on evidence. That's not necessarily very solid. So they had a similar a criterion to us which right at the beginning of the pandemic was sh- you might remember which is he going to be within a couple of meters of somebody for fifteen minutes to have a significant. Chance of passing this on and what we know now is the aerosol spread the lows that's be contravened indoor environments but no the redefined were close contact is if you just think about that as the means of spread and there's no question that a lot of spread is through contact and what they've found is that in fact, you can be in close contact with somebody. Over a twenty, four hour period repeatedly. So it's not just a fifteen minute window. It's actually multiple occasions and it comes from correctional facilities where they've shown that tired the infection was probably cumulative infection over a period of time. So it's no longer fifteen minutes. It's still two meters in the case of the United States, but it can be over twenty four hour period not just one fifteen minute window. So multiple short episodes of content
Dr. Robert Brooks Discusses The Power of Resilience and Bouncing Back More Easily
"Thank you so much for being with us on UNTANGLED. Today. Beyond the show. So I want to start with this very broad question because we're gonNA, talk today about resilience, which is such a huge topic in such an important one and I would like for you to define resilience for us. Is An excellent question because different people have different definitions. The definition I basically use is that resilience implies the capacity to bounce back from adversity. Every one of us is going to experience some challenges some much greater than others, but million people problems as things to be overcome rather than be overwhelmed by they see problems things to be solved, and thus they don't feel paralyzed when adversities arises, but rather they tell themselves what are some strategies I can use to deal with this particular versity? All of us. Face, certain challenges, and one of the things that you question rings up this, we sometimes don't know when it may arise, and that's why I believe that preparing ourselves to be resilient. Have a resilient outlook really helps us in terms of preparing us for the many different situations challenges that may arise in our lives. What is that inner strength that propel some people to overcome obstacles and adversity? Given the research con temperament from birth. Some children already have a greater capacity to deal with adversity than others and that doesn't mean you can't learn to deal with adversity put a child's temperament how easy they are whether or not they quickly get frightened or how they start out already could be a certain predisposition for being either less or more resilient, but I wouldn't want anyone listening to this saying. You mean. Set in stone. By the time, we're two years old now, but certainly this the old nature nurture and you really can't separate them. So certainly, our inborn temperament plays. and. Then our life experiences some children grow up in homes where they will have very tomatoes to observe people's solving problems people dealing with conflict while I know from my clinical practice, there are those who basically have never really had models. With, people always are very stressed out with people do not know how to deal with conflict. So certainly, our born temperament at life experiences will play a role. One question I often get is, was it ever too late? Can people become more resilient and I would never have written a book I didn't feel at any age. There are certain things that we can do to help us to develop a greater capacity for it's. My stance has been to look at what are the characteristics of resilient people I started asking. Zillion child or adult see the world differently themselves differently from others and can we incorporate this into our schools in trial pair day an entire own lives by cannot tell you how many parents and teachers and other caregivers basically said to me. Can you help Chalabi resilient if you're not Brazilian and the quick answer is it's more. So, in terms of your question I, do a lot of workshops. Helping kids being resilient when I share with people are what are some of the characteristics of say resilient kids and can we somehow develop strategies to this just to give you one example which is one of my favorites? Years, ago. I was writing a book about school climate and I asked about fifteen hundred adults to fill out an anonymous questionnaire and one of the questions. Wise of all the memories you have school. What is one of your favorite memories at something adult said or did that boosted your dignity and your motivation? One of the most frequent responses was he will recall when they were asked to help out I. Got Answers like I. Remember when a teacher asked me to pass out the milken straws I remember not dress me to tutor young child and I remember the time saying to myself. That's one of the best memories of school. Now know that there's a whole body of research that shows senior citizens who are actively involved in helping others humidity control for other things sleep longer lives and are less stress. We now know that when kids are invited to help other sayings in schools, they're less likely to be bullied. So to drop out. So the past couple of weeks a couple of workshops for educators and one of the things I say kids to be more resilient. Asked. This question does every child in the school every student feel that he or she is making a positive difference in school because that's what brings purpose and meaning. As I said before resilient people see problems this things to be solved rather than overwhelmed boy. So I often pose the question. What do you need to have that belief? One thing is in early age is help them to make decisions so that they started to become good problem solvers with adults. I will often say in my workshops or when I'm dunes therapy have any of you ever face a problem where I thought is I don't even know where to. Start and everyone handles by said Majid this almost every problem you face to felt that way. So situation like that people become over well, they're not going to be resilient at all they become more stress. So with my adult patients, I'll say, so we have to figure out how you can step back and think of different options and different ways of solving things I. Don't WanNa be over-simplistic as I say it is. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed we fail to look at some possible options will be helpful with teachers parents I say, if problems arise in a classroom or home, let's more more s kids how they might sell them. Approach is really been to look at the characteristics of Brazilian children are adults, and then how can you apply these in your own life?
Hacking Our Way to Innovation with Rebecca Love, RN, MSN
"So here. The woman we really love to dig into wine. Nurses decided on that sealed in particular. So what made you want to be nurse so nursing was a second career choice for me? I had gone for Undergrad in a degree in international relations and a minor in Spanish and I thought that I was going to be a lawyer to be honest and I was working on a presidential campaign at the time when healthcare was a big issue. I remember being these rallies and everybody was talking about healthcare and there were no nurses in the audience or a lot of Ernie's or a lot of lobbyists or a whole bunch of people that know nurses and I don't know about you Daniel but my mom's nurse. Do you have any family members who are nurses in your family? My Grandmother was okay and so that was my piddle movement. My mom came out and we went to dinner and she said we really think you should be a nurse and I remember her. It was an interesting time the politics going on and I remember thinking you know what? How can you be a member of? How can you speak to the choir if you're not a member of it and if everybody's talking about healthcare but nobody a nurse here? How do we really know what needs to change? And what the problem. Yeah and that was where my life turns recognizing that to really impact change in healthcare. I probably had join healthcare Do that and that's where my journey began. That's amazing it's topic. I've talked to a couple of friends about we've talked about on here to how there isn't representation in Congress in government of nurses like what we're actually going through what we face on a daily basis. I think that's fascinating at that. Made you change your career path. That's amazing well. It's funny that you say that because the statement that made me change my career path was at my I want you know. I said I wanted to be a lawyer and my mom said to me she said you know there's plenty of strong lawyers out there in the world and she said but I can tell you is being a nurse. There's not enough strong nurses out there. I need more strong nurses on there to change. What nursing looks like to the world and and you to become a nurse and at that time? I didn't know what that meant. I I remember. It felt really importance. But it's now ten fifteen years later that I look back and I recognize those words shaped everything that I've done in nursing every step of the way and I know your own story about how hard times it was for you to be a nurse and how it's challenges we faced how you didn't always feel like you fit in are you also didn't feel like you had a voice and that was hard for me and I'm and how to learn how to navigate. What sometimes feels like a very disempowered profession to become more voicemail and more recognized but more importantly that necessarily placated she but really just given a seat at the table is. Hey you got this. You know what you're talking about and I respect your opinion as much as I respect. Everybody else is around the table. Not so much. Hey I'm just giving it placeholder for a nurse to have at the table. It's really sit there and say we want them here. Because we we get that you guys have value add. That's been really interesting place to come from and I don't know you know in your own personal With your conversation if you guys have felt the same kind of challenges at times yes One hundred percent. And that's something that I think just Added onto years of being like repressed as a nurse that led to ultimately me burning out at the bedside. And that's something that you've been really trying to champion a lot for to in that you know there's this fear like aren't nurses are burning out after two years we're reporting out all these new grads but they're burning out so quickly yeah two hundred fifty thousand nurses. We graduate a year in this country and we lose over fifty percent of them by the bedside within spheres a practice the largest exodus of a profession that nobody talks about and I like you left the bedside as a as an rn. Within two years. I went back to Grad. School became a nurse practitioner for that exact feeling of feeling so like I didn't have that voice and every time I stepped in and I felt like there were so many near misses where I begged you know for changes to happen or orders to be changed or medications to begin our interventions to happen literally knowing that things were going wrong but not having the ability to make those decisions to change. There's outcomes depending on other people to make those decisions and only be given. The toolbox is a nurse to sit there and say well I really think I really believe are really feel that we got to make this big this change or get medication and not giving the tools to actually effectively voice. Why I had the you know the knowledge in the expertise to make those decisions at everything I always did had to be signed off by somebody else because as I was considered for lack of a better world credible enough or had the license or the intelligence to be able to recognize that what we were seeing. Mary made sense it. We should be able to take initiatives to save patient's lives because that was always really hard place for me to citizens to sit there and beg other people and then sometimes it literally and I'm sure you face it if you felt like you were burnt out so often begging to make the changes that we did an often being told. Hey stay in your lane like if you see problems but your job is to be a nurse and to do those things. Your job is not to challenge the way that things are being done and under mentally. That always sat wrong with me Fundamentally because you probably nursing school told hey you're you're the advocate of the patient where you really get on but when we got out in practice man it was tough
A thrilling naval rescue off the coast of Nova Scotia
"When things start to go wrong on the open ocean sometimes they go really wrong really quickly. We make really good boats. We have state of the art navigation systems and we have all the emergency measures in the world to prevent disaster still. We don't belong there. The Sea is not our turf. And if you've ever seen a movie about a nautical disaster it's not that far off from reality about a year ago off the eastern coast of Canada. Things went really wrong really quickly. And all that state of the art technology wasn't working when that happens the boat and its crew can't do much outs but put out an emergency distress call and pray that somebody answers it and that those people are close enough to help and if they're really lucky at the ships that answer. The call are part of the Royal Canadian Navy and are prepared to undertake one of the most dramatic. Rescues that you'll hear about outside of a Hollywood pitch meeting. This is the story of that rescue. I'm Jordan he throwing. This is the big stars. Nick Taylor busy of Maclean's chronicled the whole dramatic tale. An hello first of all what is the McKenna McKenna is a forty nine foot yacht. It's called the Hanse four ninety five. It was on the inside of beautiful boat. I don't know a whole lot of boats but I saw some photos Of the cabin and it was decked out you could wash dishes on that thing you could sleep very comfortably and you could sail the high seas. It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan
Microsoft's most daring Surface ever might be unveiled this week
"We do have a lot to talk about obviously to more. You're here here for the surface of the Microsoft hardware of and not this not a surface event. It's a Microsoft hardware wording here obviously a lot of surface news coming along so I want to kind kind of stick to that and actually at the show I'll give a little review of my iphone eleven pro Max that I've here for about a week and a half now so it's a lot of pros and cons say that there's a lot of nothing but good news from US Review Sandra curious. I'm there's some there's a handful of things not all the sickness. That's making your negative. The sickness made me extremely you like it didn't prevent me from getting a flu supposedly Rowsley Apple Devices prevent illness and injury. You know what that's what I thought but only if I had the air pods any Apple Watch I would have been prevented all illnesses so tim. I'm Cook told me so Paul. What do you want to begin with. This event actually let me let me begin at the end because this is leaking all of the twitter's right now so so as I had speculated for actually many weeks in a row and windows weekly Microsoft is GonNa because I base this on the timing of the event. You may recall that in the spring. They suddenly started testing windows ten version twenty one. The Virgin is not coming until next year. That was very confusing. They've never done anything like that before. It's a Lotta time right yeah and and given that and the fact that such and Adela was coming to this event. I I've been speculating that maybe this'll be the time that they unveil what's going on. Software wise in that release because it must be the basis of this light. Os or whatever we're calling this thing that we've been talking about for a long time and now what has leaked is that Microsoft will announce a new version of windows ten wins ten acts that will ship late next year on new dual screen in folding screen devices does ten x ten ten. Well Yeah right right so this is the first this. Is this the first name. I guess official name change absorb trailer for Windows ten. No no no no so. This is just a new version so we have windows ten home. We have pro enterprise. We have been pro. workstations nations got it so ten. X is another skew. It's and it will only be provided on those devices. It's not something well. I should say I I actually don't know a lot about it right now so I should say I don't you know there's no way that someone with windows ten. homer pro is ever going to be able to update to this or upgrade or whatever it's not a you know. It's like a side hi thanks so it's just another skew in its very specifically for those kinds of devices and so we'll see what else you know. They'll talk about it. they'll show show off a prototype apparently some people upset of what Mary Jo Foley Centaurus and you know look we know Dell and Lynn Ovo have both talked about. I don't know if was falling deal screen devices or one of the one of both whatever those are the number one in three three P. C. makers in the world. Presumably everyone in the top five will announce such a device may be. We'll see one of those Lenovo last year was very or the subsisiary. Actually was very cagey when they said you know it's. GonNa be running windows but they didn't say which version obviously it's going to be this version so yeah that's exciting. I suspect I'm just again. I'm just guessing based on timing that twenty one that version of windows ten we've been testing forever must have the plumbing wing necessary to support those devices and that will actually see the the real world support for it in two thousand eight to which would be a minor upgrade that will ship at this time next year so so that's that's the big news it's kind of like their one more thing you know type announcement right because obviously the focus tomorrow is going to be on the stuff like here's the new stuff that we're. GonNa ship very soon for this holiday season the windows ten x stuff for next year time period but I think they're just prepping the user base really just for the future right so this this is coming windows those who support folding until screen devices. I find it very interesting considering d think they'll show some some sort of you know demo on a rendered device. I have no idea yeah I'm curious about that. I I yeah I'm curious. See I'm curious to see if usually at these events. You don't see you know deller. Lenovo already other company right so I don't know if they're going to either not. I don't know if we're actually going to see their devices in person or anything like that. I don't that I have no idea that demo is for those folding devices. I I know that I know that it's hot now because it's new but coote. Who is it marketed to WHO I remember. It's almost like when the note I came out right the Samsung note and everybody said the way too big for the regular consumer. WHO's this poor. Who needs the phone to be that big and in reality slowly? Every single phone became that Obagi now there's nothing unique about it in that sense but you know right now who sat foldable device for actually the that thing thing that you just mentioned is probably a good comparison because it well okay. I guess it doesn't actually replace another device. I suppose in some ways the died so for a lot of people a FAB type form factor means. They don't have to have a tablet and a phone right so they have this thing. That's kind of inbetween in a does both things well. You can watch movies and read. It's like a big enough screen. I think that this new device type folding a dual screen devices kind of fall into the same type of category where in in this case what you might be preventing yourself or not having to carry any Moore's laptop right that this thing will will be a phone or a small tablet form factor to begin with and it's easy to carry but when you need the bigger screen you can kind of open up. It's it's sort of the same value proposition gas as you know a folding smartphone right. It's when you need it. You know you get the bigger screen and so I'm I'm curious to see how Microsoft presented that I mean the surface team has proven itself to be very averse to leading edge technology right. They still don't support thunderbolt three for some reason so what what would make them jump on the bandwagon with this kind of thing they must have some pragmatic rationale for it. They don't tend to just do things to kind of nuts not so part of it is probably pressure from PC makers you know in the same way that Samsung and Weiwei and whatever must have gone to go and say hey guys. This is the new trend you've got support this android they did even though they don't today provide their own folding vice of any kind and they don't seem to be making one. Microsoft in this case is making one so very interesting because we'll say very. It's very interesting considering. This is something that we've been I berth for all that changes a lot doesn't and this was probably one of the first major topics we discuss when you and I started started doing podcasts courier was a foldable windows based device or Microsoft device that a lot of people were excited for in two thousand nine or two thousand and two thousand ten right when I think he mark thousand career exact timing yeah I mean we go back to it because it kind reminds me of this because we we had the scene discussion where who is marketed to US vice four and can't catch catch on. I'm not convinced that why and Samsung are going to have a la- major success with their foldable devices with their foldable yeah. Maybe it's something that happens over time I the the note was immediately successful in it triggered a a real change in the industry. Even apple eventually jumped on board. Obviously the the folding thing it's GonNa take a while but part of the reason is just the reliability issues right. You're seeing problems with their redesigned designed. Samsung Galaxy fold and so it's GonNa take a little a little take a little while. I do think that because. PC's are bigger and bulkier devices compared to phones that the reliability issues have a chance of not being a serious and there are some productivity arguments. You could make around in having a bigger screen at your disposal so we'll see. I mean some of it's going to be hokey. It may not you know the whole thing may not fly. I don't personally other than the whole yeah. It's cool the thing I mean I. I don't personally see a use case for it. So a lot of people said that about like we said the note. I remember remember when I when I think jokes holding like an ipad up to like I had one sent me by. At and T. to review and I loved it. I praise the device I I thought the more battery life and that thing remember Android at that point wasn't as refined as as it is now at all bit rot was way worse than it was today. These things were were the soft software wasn't as sophisticated as it was on the iphone at that time so I love the phone and I gave it a praising a great review view where the battery life was a necessity and other other manufacturers should catch onto this large display and

The meat company trying to train up a more diverse generation of startup founders from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Only about one percent of venture capital backed startup founders are black according to CBS sites. Data even fewer are black women or Latino. There's not a lot of age, diversity geographic, diversity and underrepresented founders. Don't always have access to the networks or the training programs that can help them get startup funding. Mandela Dickson is a former public schoolteacher startup founder and was a mentor for entrepreneurs at the firm Cape or capital about a year ago. She created founder, Jim, which is an online only training program for would be startup founders. I talked to her the afro tech conference last week in San Francisco. Just like if you want to be a lawyer, you go to law school, if you wanna be a doctor you go to medical school, right? But there is no school for people who wanna be venture capital backed startup founders in often times the schools that are formed are informal right by your networks and a lot of underrepresented founders. Don't have the people in their networks who've raised venture capital who've Ben venture capitalists. So we're. Literally, creating kind of from the ground up this first Ebba curriculum, specifically tailored to meet the needs in how a deep level of empathy for the lived experiences of underrepresented founders. So tell me about the Taylor like what is different about the message that you give to underrepresented founders. What are the first activities we do is actually called differences as strengths, and it really is actively for founders to reflect on what makes them unique how because you didn't grow up where these other people grew up because you went to different schools and were exposed to different things that your purview is different in the world. And that you're able to see problems other people don't even know exist, and that's a competitive advantage because most people out there, are you mostly will out there are not from fluid background. And so the problems that you're going to go out and solve will actually help the majority of people since it's online only talked to me about the network building. Because I know that's a big thing that people talk about when they come out of us of an accelerator in there with a class, and they really have. It's sort of like we were all eagle scouts together. Baen it's huge. How do you create that in a in an online experience straight question? So that's actually one of the biggest things I underestimated Meyer, original hypothesis for founder, Jim was that it was a curriculum was a language barrier that the reason people were not succeeding here from certain groups was because they didn't speak the language. Well, what I grave underestimated was that people were looking for a community these individuals again, they're only in their world. They may be the only black or Brown or let LGBTQ are older founder in their circle in. So how we structure network it's in we're very intentional. We do affinity groups on a weekly basis. We also do peer trainings. So it's not just the expert trainers who have the knowledge we actually elevate the founders within our community to train each other Mandela Dixon is founder and CEO of founder, Jim incubators and exceleron for underrepresented, founders are becoming more. Common. Although experts say it'll be hard to change the industry for good until the venture capitalist themselves. Become more diverse and now for some related links. I did find some hopeful news about the tech industry, relatively speaking. An off Ed in entrepreneur magazine from about a week ago notes, a big upsurge in the number of events focused on women and investment, partly because successful women entrepreneurs are funding the next generation of founders and also because we're just talking about it a lot still only two percent of BC funding went to women at all in two thousand seventeen far less to women of color.

How to get your ideal client's attention
"To capture your ideal clients attention, whether it's online on your website on social media, or if you're at a business of dent and you're meeting people, who are your potential clients, you want to use language that is their language. You want to describe. The things you help people do because most entrepreneurs you either help. Someone solve a giant boulder of a problem, right? That's blocking them hats, the rest of their life, right? Or you help them chief this giant dream. That feels like it's as far away as Mars. So when I ask people to get clear on their ideal client, it's really getting down to it's even more than a niche. You've got a target market, you think of his beach fall right now, then you think of a niche market? Well, that's a medicine ball, like a workout, all of its smaller, and that's that's a good start. But I like to say, go further drill down to the diamond in the centre, your perfect ideal client and get to know them better than they know themselves get to know them. Like, you know, your family journal. I recommend journal some people like to write your computer, asked yourself everything about them. Sure. You saw problems for him, that's that's just the beginning. Why do they want to solve the problems? What are their emotional drew. Drivers? What gets them up in the morning? You start with what are they wake up at two AM going God. If I don't fix, you know, ABC problem a my life and my businesses over, right, we'll hold on to help clarify for second because I think you crossed over into a separate area and I want to make sure that I haven't lost anybody that's in our community. We started by talking about things like marketing, and then we started to develop a maybe an idea that might be sales or or there's definitely difference between sales and marketing. So how is it that we can teach ourselves? We have to understand what our market wants, but we also have understand how to present it to our market so that when they come to us as result of our great marketing that we're about to go into, we don't feel like we are being to sales a, you're too pushy for them because isn't that one of the issues that many people have factly feeling. They don't want to throw in horn. They don't wanna feel overly self promotional, but the way around that is to think about marketing number one, you're being of service when you're telling potential clients how you help. Others just like them. You talk about the outcomes. You shove very brief stories about how you help people just like them solve problems just like they have. It's interesting because it's almost like you're educating the people that are coming to you as to the things that you've done that have been good in the past with other clients and all your basically doing sharing the other client story about how you were able to solve their problem thinking. Maybe there's some crossover if you've done it. Right. And your only marketing to a specific niche market, they probably have very similar problems. They probably have the same questions at many. Your other clients have an all you're really doing is solving the problem through sharing the story of how you solve the problem for somebody else.
