Staying Confident In The Airplane
"And what I want to address this podcast and I'm hearing a lot of things like Jason I, got my private a year ago I flew pretty regularly for a few months but you know life. And just not flying as much as I wanted to, and I'm starting to lose that confidence I. Don't feel like I wanNA, take my kids up or my wife because I don't feel confident if something happens up there that I can deal with it or at least deal with it is sharply as I did the day after my check reading. So I've gotten a few versions of that story and I WANNA talk to you about how you can do this how you can stay proficient and you can stay confident and you don't have to spend a fortune to do it and I think there are three main points that I wanna make in small tweaks you might have to make to your flying. But the first one is in, you know how close this is to my how hard the standardization the idea that you can ritualized you're flying. And then remember like rehearse remember and perform the ritual of flying and so all you really have to remember is that ritual and what the ritual is designed to do is to weed out the possibility of thousands of other smaller mistakes from happening I'm great example there is the final walk around on a preflight, right. If you just remember to do the final walk around on a preflight, you might catch tomorrow on the nose wheel cinderblocks blocks on the tail Pito Tube cover. Fuel caps left off seatbelts hanging out of the door baggage compartment opened I mean I, you go on and on and on with the things that you might catch. Simply. By remembering to walk around the airplane after the preflight. Okay and that goes deep. If you want a very detailed version of all of the soap's the standard operating procedures that I teach, those are all in my book setting the standard. But that is one concept that will add huge beer flying. This is an I didn't make this operate. This is the way the professional pilots do it because they've got money in the game they've got a business, they have to take care of one of their pilots crashes. It can't be game over right not only that as you've heard me say the company's survived the accident typically. So the company has a chance to evolve develop a procedure that will prevent the. Pie The from any other pilots for making the same mistakes and they can force compliance with that procedure. That's huge. That's the whole process, and if you can get yourself to do that, you are miles ahead of the game. All right. That's one thing we'd like to ritualized the flying, and the second thing is getting rid of this idea that you go back every two years for what they used to call a biennial flight review or a flight review that is not. Enough that is not regularly. You're not going to regularly enough if you're going back every two years and the pros know this to right how often do the pros go back? I heard you say it every six months, right. So if you're a professional pilot, every six months, you go back with your instructor. Back to the training environment and you go through the ringer right you practice all of the emergency procedures, all of those things that you might need if someday. You're you're in a situation where you have an incident? You've got your family on board right and all of this training inspires confidence. So this is the feeling of confidence in the airplane comes from doing it regularly and feeling confident that you can handle the edge cases if they come up. I'm so what most people do just to kind of get US summarized here three point two when most people do is they get their pilot certificate they here. Okay. I have to get a flare view maybe they go get a new club checkout and then that's it right and then they're out flying with their friends and their kids and their wife and two years ago by nothing boy I better go get a flight review that is not a way to inspire confidence. That is not a way to feel good about what you're doing. In the pros know that. and. So the last thing I'd like to say is this is the part where we get into. This is the third point where we get into the budget. Is that there's been a lot of evidence to suggest that if you just keep your head in the game right back in the day they see if you read flying magazine or you re Flight Training magazine those are still great ideas by the way. But in today's world you've got youtube and you've got APPS late ground school and you've got you know ah so many different ways to stay engaged with aviation. And I always tell students when they come in to train. The typical question is how much is this gonNa cost me I don't. Generally answer that question as a complete daughter a mount I won't say, well, this certificate certificate is GonNa cost you fifteen thousand dollars or twenty thousand dollars. If you really pin me down on it, I will say it will cost you anywhere from fifteen to twenty five, thousand dollars. There's a ten thousand dollar. Window there depending on how prepared you are when you show up for lessons how regularly fly how busy you are all that sort of stuff. But that's not even the important part. The important part is that you really think about flying more like a monthly expense more like a habit. So when a student comes in and says or perspective, Stephen Comes in and says, I'm thinking about flying how much is this gonNa cost me I will usually say how much can you afford each month? Right? Is this something you can. Afford. To put fifteen hundred dollars a month into or is it something you can only afford to five hundred dollars a month into is something you can put an unlimited amount of money anti right I mean I just have no idea where you're coming from but the important part is you're starting to think about it like a habit that you're taking on and you're never gonNA stop. So you have this monthly expense for flying. Now, let's take A. Relatively for flying a relatively modest budget. Let's see we have seven hundred dollars or eight hundred dollars a month that we feel as though we can spend on flying right it doesn't sound like a lot when you consider your CFI's probably one hundred dollars an hour on the airplane while it's running. Over one hundred dollars an hour. So you're out there spending on, let's say, let's just pick numbers. Let's say the airplanes one hundred and fifty dollars an hour and you go out for one point five keep it keep it. You know easy math that's two hundred, twenty, five dollars right? One, fifty plus seventy, five, two, hundred, and twenty, five dollars plus your CFI you're together with your. Maybe. Instead of one point five year together for two hours it's another two hundred dollars. So we're looking at four hundred and seventy five dollars we're looking at. If you do one lesson a month after your certificate, you're spending four hundred and seventy-five bucks. You've left yourself with a budget of about three hundred, fifty dollars maybe a short two hour flight somewhere with your family. But you've flown twice in the month right and that's the way you need to think about the finance part of it think about it as as a monthly expense and try to allocate how much you're spending each month a little bit toward training and
Tesla's $5 billion share offering to be priced 'at the market'
"Today we are talking about Tesla's possible equity distribution of people have been calling the capital risk today and it may very well be, but we'll go into the details on that. Also, the implications that that may have four, S&P five hundred inclusion, and just a quick update on how that looks after the stock split, and then we have a been a news on model y out of Shanghai as well. So Tesla stock on the. News today was down four point, seven percent to four hundred and seventy, five dollars, five cents but a pretty steep drop from the after hours trading yesterday in the pre market trading today where tussle actually peaked around five hundred and forty dollars per share still though even with that drop today. TUSLA still up post split remember the split happened around four hundred and forty two dollars per share. I've gotten a lot of questions on why it would drop. Today I never know you know you can't you can't know for sure but it did drop on the news of the potential capillaries, which will obviously go into more detail on here. But many brokerages have seemed to have some issues with handling the stock split, which has made in some cases trading unavailable for some people. So there may have been a decent amount of shares locked up yesterday seems like a significant amount of that has been freed up. Today so many of those people in those circumstances may have decided to take some profit off the table after the run that we've seen the last couple of weeks, there's been some theorizing around the Internet that may be some of those brokerage issues were caused by naked short selling, which essentially means your selling a share short that you have not actually borrowed from anyone. You're just sort of creating your little share to sell to someone with the expectation. Being that if you would need to actually deliver that share at some point, you could go and borrow one. But the theory is that the split caused some problems for people in that position because of the need to deliver the four extra shares which has then resulted in some of the scrambling that has caused some of the share lockup for this period. Personally I am relatively skeptical of that theory the only reason that I really bring it up. Is because number one I've heard people having issues with their brokerages the last couple of days and number two to provide an example of things that may not necessarily be known. That could also influence the stock price rather than just the news of the equity distribution today are getting into the possible capital raise. Then I'm sure by now most people have heard that this morning tell disclose in a filing that they have entered into an agreement that will. Allow them to raise up to five billion dollars in cash through a follow on offering of Tesla stock. So that means Tesla can sell share of the market they keep the money for those shares and use that for their business purposes those shares if and when they are sold our newly issued shares. So that ends up increasing the outstanding share count deluding existing shareholders but for the exchange of the new cash coming into the business which can increase. The value of the company. Now in this case was particularly interesting is that normally when capital raises happen, follow on offerings happen there is a fixed price fixed number of shares. So company is going to say, okay, we're going to sell twenty million shares for one hundred dollars a share and raise two billion. That is not what Tesla is doing here. So this is an equity distribution agreement also known as an at the market follow on offering which means. That Tesla as the issue or can work with the banks that are helping facilitate the transaction ten for banks to decide based on the price that day if dessel wants to sell any of this offering all tesla spells this out very clearly in the filing saying quote, we will designate the maximum amount of common stock to be sold through the sales agents on a daily basis or otherwise as we sales agents agree and the minimum price per share. At which such common stock may be sold and quote. So Tesla could end up raising zero dollars from this. If they don't like the price that they're getting from the market that could also raise five billion or any amount in between and they to make this decision on daily basis or even more frequently as they say, they are if they agree to that with the banks facilitating this offering, Tesla just set the minimum price that they'll take and. If it doesn't hit it. Well, that's fine. Tesla doesn't need to raise capital them. Tussle highlights this point in the use of proceeds section. In the filing saying quote, we may issue and sell shares of common stock having aggregate sales proceeds up to five billion dollars from time to time because there is no minimum offering amount required as a condition to close this, offering the actual total public offering amount commissions and proceeds to us if any are not. To terminable at this time and quote as far as what Tesla would actually use any capital wrist four, they say quote, we currently intend to use the net proceeds from the offering to further strengthen our balance sheet as well as for general corporate purposes and quote. So personally I am thrilled with this Tesla now has the ability at any given point in time any single day to raise up to five billion dollars if the stock price surges in any. Particular Day for whatever reason Tesla can offer some shares opportunistically raise some money maybe they decide they wanNA raise a billion or two billion. They have that flexibility. The only real disadvantage of this kind of structure that you're not getting that fixed price you leave yourself vulnerable to a falling share price. So if you actually need the capital, sometimes those fixed prices can be better because you're assuring that you will get that capital, but if you don't need. It and you're just trying to raise opportunistically than this is a perfect structure. My point of view has mostly been that tussle doesn't really need to raise capital. They've got a lot of cash on hand and I think free cash flow is about to start to really ramp up is next few quarters. So even with the market cap being what it has been, I've basically been of the mind that if dessel feels like they need to raise the. Capital all support it, but it doesn't look to me like they need to. So I'm just as happy if they don't and this seems like a perfect middle ground, I liked the amount as well. Obviously could be anywhere between zero and five billion dollars. But even if it is maxed out at five billion and even if it's roughly around the share prices that were at today, let's say five hundred dollars a share. That's ten million new shares Tesla. After the split has about nine hundred and thirty one shares total outstanding. So that's about one percent dilution only that you're looking at to raise possibly five billion dollars even if you don't think Tesla needs capital Beth such small delusion having cash on hand as Tesla said, would improve the balance sheet that can go a long way in improving their credit ratings that can allow them to access cheaper debt there can be a lot of benefits of that cash. I wouldn't advocate for it, but they could use that to pay down some of their outstanding debt, cut those quarterly interest payments that we talked about last week, which would lead to tesla retaining more of their cash better profitability whether they just let that flow through all the way to the bottom line or reinvested elsewhere in the business.
How She Crafted a Career Where Passion and Profit Intersect
"Are just it is due time that you are on the gold digger podcast. So welcome to the show I had stop our early intro chatting because like we need to hit record on this this. So welcome to the PODCAST. So happy to be here. Finally, I I feel like we've been like in each other's DM's just for the last year being when when, when, and honestly there's never been a better time than this. So I am so I like divine. Niagara Oh. Okay. So I wanNa know like, tell me because I actually don't know this about you wear and when did all of this start telling me about the early days of your career before you were consulting for these massive brands and changing the world as we know it, how did this all begin for you? You know like all good stories, it began a little bit by accident I've been an entrepreneur for twenty five years I have never ever worked for anybody else. We'll wait that's not true. I worked for I worked for Clothing Company for four days. Would it? Out of college but I, I went to college at Penn state I loved feeder and performing. Arts and I thought that you know that's all I wanted to do was perform, write, and produce and direct, and then I got there and liberal arts education blew my mind and I got a degree in women's studies and a degree in classics. So now I have three degrees at gaming to make no money in. At least back then that was the thinking and so honestly, at twenty one years old I I had been so educated at Penn State, but at twenty one I'm out of college now and I take another community college class on grant writing, and this is where it started for me. I started my own company at twenty. One I learned how to write a grant to get money from businesses and my first grant that I got was five thousand. Dollars it was from an insurance company and I wanted to talk about eating disorders and body image and social issues that were affecting women at the time has always been a passion point for me and this company gave me five thousand dollars to produce my plays and take them to school and and that's how I started I literally had no idea how to pay people pay people, eleven, dollars a week because I thought it sounded better than ten. It was crazy back in back in the day like I was just ambitious in Hungary and naive and and committed and I just you know I started this company was twenty one I ran out for six for six years, and then I sold it and kind of came out here to to California trying to find my place in the media landscape and you know I was twenty seven years old landed out here. I didn't know anybody in California I. Didn't know. How I was going to parlay all of this incredible experience. I had on the road talking to students for six years, but then I wanted to move into a completely different medium and I had no training in that I just had a curiosity and that's always been a guiding force for me I love that do that five thousand dollars feel like a million dollars was probably the most essential money you've ever earned while yeah. That time if I could even just place. Our listeners Eric I'm in my mid forties, and so this is a while ago and I paid a hundred and seventy five dollars a month for rent and I you know at the time my first. So I took that five thousand dollars. That's I think why paid everybody like eleven bucks a week for people but like you know like everybody was happy to perform and get paid and and I just stretch that money as much as I could until I learned. that. I could get matching grants and I could fundraise more and so I built that business when I you know even at the time when I sold that business, I was twenty four years twenty, five years old I was making twenty five, thirty, thousand dollars year and I was living high life. I was like paid off my dad and I was living at a time even a little bit beneath my amusement gave me money to save to come out to California but. When you're new at this and I didn't know that I was really an entrepreneur I. didn't call myself that I just was trying to make the most of all this education I had gotten. Yeah. So walk me through what happens. So you get to California you WANNA, enter this media scene. You have these big visions than ideas and what I'm thinking of is nowadays, we can talk about all of these things body image and inclusivity and eating disorders and and it doesn't necessarily feel like a dirty word or something wrong or shameful back then it was very different. So walk me through what happened next yeah I felt very kind. Of alone in out there in my field of choice, you know it was a hybrid of women's issues, social issues self-help empowerment, and I was a young you know as a young woman who was trying to kind of chart my own course, and so I got out to California drove out to that quintessential road trip with friend got out to California and my Geo Prizm stayed at a hotel by the airport the extended stay America I lived there for three months and couldn't find a place to live in La like didn't have a lot of friends out here but I just have always had this dogged determination that's part of. My DNA it's part of my type A personality, and so you know I called everybody I knew I did a lot of cold calling and I did have to factors that I think helped when I got out here when I was in college I did a show for MTV news at the time where I I was able to share some of the work that I was doing on college campuses around sexual assault and sexual harassment and MTV picked up that story. So this summer I graduated I had a lot of press coverage and I had some you know offers to speak places and so I started following that path and. That helped kind of learn how to pitch myself how to talk about myself how to par lay the press that I had into the next opportunity, and so you know when I was out here, I knocked on every door I could, and eventually what I did was I went entered myself into this pitch contest at this big television production conference called Nat P. It's the National Association of television programming exacts and it was like everywhere you went like when you wanted to be Oprah Right Oprah soldier show and everybody's like selling their TV shows into syndication and I signed myself up as a solo person and I bought the wrong badge. Bought a badge that was a promoter like a sponsor bad and so I was asked to come into everybody's sweet and everybody was being so nice to me and I thought Oh my God this is. Like everybody is so welcoming when I realize at the end of the day, they thought I
Adding Style or Updating with Temporary Wallpaper
"Discuss home aesthetics, specifically, adding character or updating things like kitchen, cabinets and bookshelves using temporary wallpaper. Note that this is also a renter friendly suggestion in the event that you don't own your own home yet. Also this is a concept to chew on for updating a space without completely overhauling it. When we built our home I, really wanted a different color island than our main bank of Cabinets. But Alas are upgrades were already fast, approaching thirty thousand dollars and I decided that it wasn't something I had to have at least right now. Fast forward five years, and I was still toying with the idea of painting the back side of the island. That faces are living space. But man painting is so permanent. I mean I know you can undo it, but it's difficult to undo if we wanted to return to stain cabinets at some point. So I kept stalling. Thinking on it rolling it over and over in my mind. then. I was paging through instagram recently, and I saw post by chasing paper and had an epiphany. Why couldn't I simply use temporary wallpaper on the one side imitating tile, which would add both color that I desired and a pattern to for just one hundred and seventy five dollars and four hours of our own labor. We have a refreshed kitchen that I am loving so very much. Remember there's no such thing as perfect even with custom built cabinetry, so our biggest lesson was that when we measured are island from countertop to the baseboard top. There was a variance of of an inch from the left side to the far right side, so we had to cut the larger size and then trim it after hanging it to accommodate the imperfection. The chasing paper product is basically like a giant sticker. We peel off the backing starting at the top and gradually pull it down from behind as we work our way out pushing the air bubbles out and smoothing it from the center to the edges. We were challenged as we got to the left and the far right side, because we couldn't use a razor blade to cut vertically on the edge of the island without scraping the would. We opted to tape it up with masking tape, so we kind of did it like a mock hang while the backing was still on it, so we can draw a vertical cutline and cut it before peeling the backing off one person held up a large cutting matt against the wallpaper to hold it in place, while the other person drew a cutline on the edge of the backside. Sure enough once we pulled it away, the top and bottom were not a perfectly straight line, so if we had simply measured it and cut it. It would not have been as precise. We have custom cabinets, and they look perfect, but they are not actually because there's no such thing as perfect and sometimes things are off here and there a sixteenth of an inch. We also put temporary wallpaper in the back of our Bilton bookshelves, many years back to add depth and interest. We love it, and now that five years has passed. I'm thrilled. I could change it out easily and put up something different in their without repainting. Temporary wallpaper rocks my friends. It's worth noting though that it does best on smooth surfaces, which means walls that have texture are going to be less wallpaper friendly, and you'll likely see the texture visible through the wallpaper. Since we did the back of our Bilton bookshelves and the back of our island, neither were walls, so we didn't have to worry about the wall texture. There's no glues or mess necessary. There are several companies out there offering wonderful modern patterns and designs. Here are a few that sell it although I'm sure there are more. Chasing paper is who I bought from WHO got and West. Walls need. Love Spoon, Flower Wall, candy it's West Elm. Temp Paper Blick Walter `natives, new paper by wall POPs Carter in Maine and Kate Zaremba. Company of course I will put a list on the facebook group page. If you're not yet a member, look up, home, space and reason. We have a few extra bits leftover from our main project and are thinking of lining the inside of a couple. Small nightstand drawers it upstairs. For a lovely little surprise inside when you open it up I've also seen people. Put this in the back of cupboards that have glass on the fronts, so the POPs of color offset the dishes and adds color to the kitchen. Now. Let's talk about what you'll need. You'll need to start with some simple green cleaner to wipe down the surface a few hours before to make sure it's dust, free and goop free, sticky, free grease free all the stuff. It needs to dry, complete Li like for reals. Maybe even do this a day before if you have the patience to wait. You'll need a long metal straight edge for cutting an EXACTO BLADE, sharp and new and a large self-healing cut. Matt often found in fabric stores. I use mine all the time. We also ended up using masking tape for making sure. Our measurements were right before committing to taking off the backing. And we also used a thin sharpy to make that line. We used a credit card a few times for pushing tiny edges up into the corners where fingers wouldn't fit. We also used a work light from the garage for shining directly directly at prospect since there was some shadowing from the countertop overhang.
How build-it-yourself firearms skirt most federal gun laws
"As the corona virus pandemic sweeps through the country panic and fear have caused a run on hand sanitizer toilet paper and guns retailers tell us they have never seen such a surgeon firearm sales one kind of weapon that has been selling out is a build it yourself for her arm known as a ghost gun because it skirts most federal gun laws there's no background check and no serial number making ghost guns invisible to police and almost impossible to trace when used in a crime we were surprised that it is all perfectly legal after a year and a half of reporting we discovered that ghost guns once mainly popular with gun enthusiasts have also become a weapon of choice for criminals manufactured by gangs and used in mass shootings so this is a test firearms reference library we sought out America's top gun cops the bureau of alcohol tobacco firearms and explosives the ATF to find out exactly what a ghost gun is Thomas Chisholm ATF's assistant director of field operations gave us rare access to its West Virginia weapons repository and told us the latest additions here are ghost gardens what's the difference between these two guns well this is a firearm that was manufactured by a licensed manufacturer of the law requires them to mark them with certain markings including serial number this is not marked no background check is completed when you purchase it it's made at home by somebody using commonly available handles so they both do the same thing they both shoot and shoot him says usually if you bought a gun at a store it would have a traceable serial number and you would need to pass a background check under federal law a ghost gun can circumvent all of that because it's put together from unfinished untraceable parts it's virtually invisible to you in government and also makes it challenging to keep it out of the hands of people who are not allowed to possess firearms after that day I'd never heard the term goes can I don't know what that was Brian mule burger found out one day last November there had been a mass shooting at his daughter's high school and fifteen year old Gracie was murdered they bring in one of the doctors and just like you see on the movies he sits across from me with that real quiet Scott solemn stare right at you and I just I'm sure sand and I'm like please now don't don't tell me that please this was the aftermath at Saugus high school in Santa Clarita California a typical Thursday morning disrupted the quad littered with backpacks after students dropped everything and fled for their lives that's where Gracie was waiting for friends before class she was about as close as I am to you right now Chater right through the backpack and right through the chest and thankfully he the name of the back of her head in a place we got to see her face one more time this is a senseless act of violence Los Angeles county sheriff Alex being a waiver arrived at the scene not long after the shots were fired this kid shows up at school what happened he shows up at school he has a backpack his mom had had packed the lunch room in the backpack was also a forty five auto load carrying that loaded ghost gun was Nathaniel birdhouse a high school junior in addition to Gracie he shot and killed Dominick Blackwell and wounded three other students he save the last round for himself he's sixteen years old mmhm just turns that was his birthday how does a sixteen year old get his hands on a gun he's he's under age under age but his father was a gun enthusiasts and was in position a lot of weapons they were ultimately confiscated because he was detained for psychiatric evaluation so he the father was not supposed to have guns and all the weapons were removed legally at the time share via Nueva suspects that's when the father turned to ghost guns and his son got his hands on one six months later the Saugus investigation is still ongoing this is the actual weapon that was used in the saga shooting is a ghost gun it was assembled we don't know by who but we believe it was the father of the suspect in the came into possession then of the shooter himself ghost gun parts can be used to fabricate a hand gun or even an A.

Filling the gaps
"I'm Steven Seagraves. Joined by Seth Miller and Fayza Mood Gentlemen. How are you doing? Well Yeah are you. I'm feeling a little better. Not One hundred percent. But I'm getting there. Just good this. This episode is being recorded solely with your right year. Yes yes so. I have no since of Stereo should we? Should we record him on? Then that's what it feels like the spoiler alert. They're all mono gotta time production and that's where they always end. We should edit this so stevens voice only comes. I left to come out of the right now. The problem is I can't do that. You can do that man. Let's let's think that'd be mean to our listeners. Think it'd be really peel off for sure A. Let's just start off by talking about what we're doing to fill our time. I'm working from home Seth I'm guessing you are as well and I got a call at work call today and so I was like. Oh so you know how you adjusting us in that. You're going to work. I always work from home did I. And I actually don't even go out on a normal day anyways this really has to say it hasn't affected me because it definitely has but on a day-to-day basis. My experience is very very similar. To what normally as I don't go to the gym I was GonNa say how can affect you in your navy reporter. Well right I mean mentally. I'm a disaster but physically. I'm sitting in the same place. I would have been anyways this weekend though normally would be on my way to Hamburg Aircraft Interiors Expo that has postponed slash canceled. I think it will actually cancelled but they admitted that That was supposedly Friday. Actually somewhat pleasantly surprised. I was able to D M American Airlines and British Airways cancelled. The flight was booked on the American and American process. The refund. They. I want me to go. Do it myself And the American process for getting a refund on their website is crap but when I went click the button is. We're sorry you can't cancel this ticket online. Ibm's him back and last night. That took care of it for me and this morning got back in touch with me told me is getting one hundred thirty two euros refunded calls. That make you feel Stephen. That's the opposite experience of united. Yes I mean at this point. I think I'm just going to file a charge. Back in right at the OT complaint wasn't what our friends at the exact same issue five tickets United Future Refunds Fry Open disputes and FAU DOT complaint if they even had chesser columbine. But if I have issues. I do the exact same thing. So here's a question for you guys. Because I believe it or not. In a similar scenario scenario my ticket home from Hamburg was an SAS operated reward issued by united and again. That's flights aren't operating. So they're gonNA is. This is just an award ticket. At worst I pay seventy five dollar redeposit. Fina get my points back. But they've canceled the flights in theory in any other scenario the the points would just get refunded for free. I can obviously issue a charge back for the taxes which were not insignificantly than Europe. But do you think stand a chance of getting my points for free or just assume? I'M GONNA pay the five dollars and have not combined until dollars you'll be able to do without the Without the thing is they're dragging their feet on refund simply because they don't want they want to hold onto the cash right so their latest policy is they will. Your ticket will stay OPEN FOR YEAR. And then they will process a refund for you right. Which assuming they're in business assuming they're in business. I mean I would hope that. If the government doesn't give these airlines a lifeline that part of those stipulations they can play stupid games. This is just ridiculous. I had a a friend asking me. His parents were supposed to go. This pet last Wednesday supposed to be on the united nonstop to Cape Town and then from there to Singapore on Swiss and then home if you or whatever and then back to the states and was asking me you know how to get out of it. Essentially we've been going back and forth like a month trying to help him out on that and Donna Mile. Just wait. Just wait. Just wait as the rules as more and more cancels things will get better for you and he eventually got to the point where they took a voucher because I think the united out athletes still operated even though this we're canceled at that point but he said his his parents. His parents were concerned that the vouchers would be nullified in a bankruptcy. I would be too I. It's a fairly assumption is it? I've thinking back of other airline bankruptcy. I don't remember that being something that they went after as far as assets they haven't but there's nothing asserted that they won't. I mean this might be more dire than anything else. They've had to go through in the past we. We are certainly unprecedented in unprecedented Era The industry. But I feel like I feel like I get I get. Why United's trying to do it. I think that they're doing it in the wrong way. Like you know. If American like American said to us they cancelled your flight. They're going to refund the. There's no reason. United should be like. Oh well we're GONNA keep your money and you're gonNA get a certificate for that case like Eve. In my case I would say my cases the like the extreme in maybe so mine is they delayed thirty two hours and basically making me leave a day early to to make connections. Chicago incidents Thirty two hours. And I like that may be a scenario where it's inconvenient for me. I could see cancelling it and keeping a credit. I don't like it. I think it's wrong but I think cancellation of a flight is more important than than my scenario. You know what I mean like. Think it's more. It's more useful for that person to get a refund in comparison to me so I don't know I just. It's disappointing that united to doing it. This way You know just actually has a flight scheduled for Wednesday that she's supposed to Austin she's not going to take the trip but I mean there's four people on the plane and amazed. I'm amazed Alaskan cancelled. It was actually talking to someone earlier today. Alaska of all the US carriers. Alaska Airlines has reduced. Its schedule. The least yeah which is really strange to me If you WANNA put on your foil hat and go for a fun ride. One of the arguments was. Maybe they want bankruptcy to undo the mess they made with the Virgin America by how might be a little bit extreme. But yeah it's really interesting how little they've adjusted their schedules Compared to obviously the big the biggest airlines Delta American united have cut massive chunks. But a lot of that international and international that Alaska never did anyways but domestic loads crater. Like jetblue is doing whether calling rolling cancellations where a day or two before the flight. If the loads are too low. They're just canceling. The trips. Reminded one hundred one hundred fifty of the eight hundred flights a day. They're doing that too now because they literally I mean. These aren't flights with single. Digit numbers of passengers. And I've pilot friend of mine. They're posted on Instagram of thirteen souls. Onboard for crew was ninety four crew nine passengers. Which is you have to cancel it. I would think a one off whatever maybe not but this is not a one off. This is the new regular. Yeah and like. That's the thing with justice flights. Like if they really wanted to they could cancel her flights and re Booker via Seattle or San Jose City And maybe put more people in planes but from what I've seen is just been masking insulations on her plate where Whitley were full. 'cause it's break here and no one's traveling now so these are all regional flights This is Portland Austin. Non-south is one seventy five thousand guys. No no it's it's not to Airbus seven seven. Three nine on the way back doesn't do anything at the regional contracts. It's it's the hipster expresses usually full. Well you know what's funny? Obsessed mention keep to honor their nose. Looking Newer Capetown is going out empty. Capetown Newark is coming back full. Everybody's evacuating Africa. Yeah it's crazy. Well that would cause I was wondering why they're running that play all the way through the end of the schedule and they cancelled everything else. I started looking at the loads mccaw. That makes more sense. Yeah there's a lot of very symmetrical loads right now Someone was saying the China Southern puts three eighties back on L. A. X. Three times a week now for those you worry that the eighties never fly again. At least for the very short period of time China Southern brought back by apparently the the SCUTTLEBUTT is empty coming into L. A. And full gone out with three Patriots Knees China as well so take with a grain of salt. It was shared by someone who is a Chinese national by suggesting that the Chinese of the United States are fearful especially in Los Angeles area. If you're full of the medical system WANNA get back to China where they think they'll be treated better. I think at this point China's probably the safest China or South Korea Safest PLACES TO BE. Certainly the most skilled incompetent in dealing with the situation. Exactly I I did find it interesting. That Singapore has now banned even transit passengers. I mean that's kind. I mean that's a. That's a new one for me now. There's a lot of countries doing now Part of that is they're they're not allowing entry of non residence and as flights are being canceled and operations are going to how they don't want to get stuck with someone who is now living in the airport
Telemedicine has come of age
"Telemedicine finally came of age this week. As Disneyland said it would close Broadway. Went dark so many conferences were cancelled and Tom. Hanks announced that he had tested positive. For the corona virus. Many people have the same questions like am I infected to? How do I find out at a press conference president? Donald Trump urged people to turn to telemedicine which I did as well this week after developing mild sore throat because as you know despite the many claims of testing becoming more widespread too cold reality is that as of today the local doctor. Office is unlikely to see you. I was directed by my doctor. Get my questions answered by the La County Health where the recording on the phone told me there were thirty people ahead of me on hold but the telemedicine folks are more than happy to take a look via. Webcam and figure out if you're actually at risk or not. Does it replace like real testing. No but it's a start as you can at least get an answer from somebody without having to wait for an appointment or worse visit in office that might be filled with people who are infected or you will in fact. I went on Dr Demand. Which is the website formed by Dr Phil and his son? J brilliant idea you spend. Your money is spent seventy five dollars. They claim that they'll work with your insurance. But I couldn't get it to work. You Click a button and you wait for a doctor to appear on the screen. I waited for thirty minutes But like it being in a waiting room I had other things to do because it was on my computer and I just walked away until Dr Susan Mayo came on the screen said hello to me. Check me out had be opened up my mouth. Basically put my mouth over the Webcam camera. So she and she had Even and she could look inside my mouth and see that. I wasn't swelling. She asked me about my medical history. She asked me about whether I had a fever and I had checked the fever before we made the call and she pretty much told me. What a doctor's office would say When I go to the doctor say to take two aspirin and get some sleep. She said stay at home and stay away from people which is basically what everybody's saying but the good news was she said. I probably didn't have the virus whether she knew it or not whether whether I would pass positive on test who knows but it was a bit I start. At least there was someone to talk to You couldn't get that far. You know there is talk about these drive through testing facilities At the press conference trump announced the Google was starting a website on Sunday to prescreen people. And that's just not true It's not google. It's a sister company to Google. And they say they are slowly developing it and they will. They will roll it out eventually. I don't think it's going to be next week. And I don't think it's GONNA be next month. So meanwhile what of the telemedicine? I spoke to a doctor in Boston. Named Dr Michael Klein who worries that we will become so comfortable with telemedicine. We'll stop going in basically because we don't have to take half a day off we don't have to drive over there. We don't have to sit in the office and wait for him. We don't have to take our clothes off. We just talk into the Webcam and supposedly get an answer. He says there's nothing like an in person visit for him to really see what's going on with you and a lot of nuances going on. He gets a lot of clues from the way you talk the way you act I'm probably with them. I I know that it's going to be more efficient. But Gosh I want to click that button and just get it over with don't you?

A mine vanishes, a court rules, and Alberta vs. Ottawa gets nastier
"There's no way to solve an energy issue in Canada right now without making some part of this country very very angry and now that the price of oil no longer guarantees a huge payoff in return for that anger. Companies are wondering if it's even worth attempting new projects tech resources announcing it's what's wrong. Its application for the frontier project. This comes just hours. After the Alberta government announced it struck a deal with to northern Alberta first nations. Of course you also can't just walk away from an energy project in Canada today without some people also getting very very angry but at least they won't be angry you. There is absolutely no doubt that this decision was taken in large part because of regulatory uncertainty and endless delays created by the national government by now. No one should be shocked to learn that. There's a lot of resentment of the federal government in Alberta. It's always been this way. It feels like it's getting worse and this time. Alberta probably has a point whatever side of the debate over climate policy versus energy policy. You might said on. It's clear that there's no big framework when it comes to approving or denying energy projects like the one tech has walked away from these projects seem right now to be handled on a case by case basis in Canada. Really continue to do business that way and if it does how will companies like tech choose which projects they push or wet and what comes home for the province of Alberta without a mine. They were counting on for thousands of jobs. Are we reaching a tipping point in the ever? Frayed relationship between the province and Canada's capital or at least the government currently sets there. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Jason Marcus off the Albert correspondent for Maclean's and also occasionally for US I Jason. Hello. Why don't you start for Ontarians and East coasters? Maybe everybody who hasn't had quite so much of an economic stake in this by just Sketching out what is tech resources. And what was I? Guess the Frontier Project Tech Resources Everybody should remember is actually not an oil company using its well companies who develop oil sands but this is actually a mining company. Their specialty is coal mines other mineral mines. They had dabbled a bit in oil sands being junior partner in one project and on this one they were trying to propose this one. All on its own This would have been an oil sands mine up quite far north of Fort mcmurray the most remote from the actual city of Fort mcmurray North East Alberta and this was one of the big classic mining projects where they basically dig up the muck the oil sands muck and refine it into `bitumen and keep refining it and keep refining until it eventually becomes oil. That's the classic oil says project. A lot of it has projects that had been developed in the last Five six years have been smaller projects where they just shoot a bunch of Stephen Chemicals and minerals into the oil sands well and dig it up. Those are smaller projects. This is going to be a big mega project. Two hundred and sixty thousand barrels a day at full completion twenty point six billion dollars of to construct this project of course though it was very hypothetical because what they needed to develop a beggar project was around seventy seventy five dollars barrel oil right now. We're at fifty. We habit around fifty four quite a long time and they needed pipeline. You know ones are coming. But it's not clear that there wouldn't necessarily be capacity if Trans Mountain and other projects don't come to be and they needed another partner to get this done big oil sands company or oil player to help them develop and finance this project and over the last five years we've been talking about companies leaving the oil sands. Nobody WANTS TO INVEST. Because it's high risk no intense carbon footprint Very controversial projects. So it was always very unlikely that this project might have ever been built. We were always debating hypothetical emissions hypothetical jobs but in Alberta of course people are very excited by those hypothetical jobs right but what killed it. Finally this week. Oh a few things. Different things killed it. I would be The decision pointed had Facing staring in the face Cabinet was supposed to It's deadline was this week whether it would approve the project reject the project. Or maybe give it some kind of deferral or delay and that's the cabinet in Ottawa. That's the at the Federal Cabinet Justin Trudeau's cabinet and for many reports a lot of cabinet ministers and certainly backbench. Mp's very split on this project. There was a lot of opposition a lot of these. Mp's are from you know. None of them are from Alberta. They're all from other provinces mostly in the east and those are places where there are not tantalized by this prospect of Seven thousand potential oil sands jobs. They think more about the the natural disturbance in an area that's actually in a bison range Very close to a UNESCO World Heritage Site National Park the Wood Buffalo National Park up on the border with North West territories and they would have seen this potential for four point one megatonnes of carbon emissions in the future Per year as we're looking to whoever deuce our carbon emissions normally and this is what tech and this is what other governments were used to This approval process cabinet decision. Making process was pretty much a rubber stamp if the technical review and the federal and provincial panels say this projects okay with conditions. That's what the federal government said liberal and Conservative in the past. They all approved it. That's why we have so many oil sands projects and a whole bunch more that are approved but not built yet. It's different times are shifting. The public public attention is shifting. Investor mood is shifting and so it's quite natural that a liberal government would shift with those times and have be hesitant on whether to approve this or not with this hesitation. Clearly tech thought. Maybe we're not going to get this. Maybe our lease is going to have a big fat rubber no stamp on it instead of a rubber stamping. Yes go ahead. So they decided rather than risk losing this project they pulled it. So what would be the rationale behind that as opposed to just letting the process play one way or another? I mean there are a couple theories out there. One is that a company wants to save face. It wasn't one all of its good intentions. All of its Its efforts to project a good project with good environmental credentials. All of its support for first nations in the region. They don't want all that to be faced with rejection. That's kind of a corporates much That basically what you do is not good enough for the federal government even though this is the defacto defacto message like that still. That's that's the reason you want to put this over. Check this out on your own terms. You want to be able to say what you say rather than Ottawa. Having its say on you another possible Rationale for this is that what are the reports that there is that they were feeling they were feeling that this was going to be delayed and they've sunk so much money into this more than a billion dollars into this planning and consultation process thus far project is valued at basically nothing in the markets according to a good global mail report haunt from their mining reporter and they just want to cut their losses another theory and this is one that I are partially hold. Is that what they had? Right now wasn't oil sands lease. They had a piece of land up in Northeast. Alberta with a proposed mine on it if they had approved mine on it approved mine project on this land. It's worth a bit where he can sell it to likely to find somebody else to take it forward. If this mining comedy didn't want to take this forward if they have rejected mine on it. This land is good for Bison and nature and not much else if they have if they have a hold withdrawn agreement on this proposal on this land. There's still the potential for somebody. Maybe someday in the future under some different government or some of their different perspective with a different proposal maybe with different terms to pick this up again so it could potentially salvage value in this lease. Although I would suggest that it's probably pretty nil at this point so I know you said that in Alberta it's kind of been a hypothetical For a longtime but there were at least a lot of hypothetical jobs in revenue there. So how has Albert or maybe just the leaders in Alberta because I don't WanNa pay the whole province With the brush but how is the Alberta government been taking the news the Alberta government like much you know is very aligned with a lot of the investor community in Alberta oil sands sector and a lot of the populace in oil producing regions like Fort mcmurray? And at least it was the idea that the there could be jobs in the future oil sands rests on two separate separate entities. I mean the whole soil says boo was to its operations actually producing oil sands and growth expanding oil sands and actually the big. The big source of jobs are in constructing these oil sands project and developing these oil sands projects and for years and years and years the big growth for Murray was not the people who actually mind. The product is people who build those minds and build those giant well sites and build the camps and all according structure around those the big boom ended because nobody was putting forward more projects to keep expanding back in two thousand eighteen Ford hills mine Which is the closest mine up to this? Where Tech was going. It opened a big mine owned by SUNCORP now. She partially owned by Tech Resources. It was called at the time in two thousand eighteen. Probably the last big oil sands mine. And that's because no other company was putting them forward except for tech resources. Big Long Shot Project. I may never be built. But but there was excitement in the oil sands community and in the government and in the sector because the potential the idea that another mind could be built is a jobs. Bonanza and sort of jobs bonanza we were used to Albert at developed this province as the screaming Beeman economic superpower. But that we haven't had so the idea that there could be another big mine on the books for when oil prices potentially rose again and it was approved the green light from Ottawa despite all our climate talk That was exciting. The that that the potential is snuffed. Out is a major disappointment here in. Alberta. Who are they blaming? For that disappointment because one thing. I will note is that this wasn't killed by Ottawa. Or was it almost killed by Ottawa? A even if they didn't rubber stamp it it was almost killed by Ottawa. That was the sense you know largely Ottawa. Ottawa was the decision maker in this point and if tech was very confident that this was going to get an approval they would have just Let that happen and would have been fine and Alberta would have been generally mall pleased that this was at least a in our project that could go forward right you know and do people here think Oughta killed it. Of course they do. This is the resource sector in government and Jason Kenny and Justin Trudeau. You know they are predisposed to blaming and directing scorn almost entirely Justin Trudeau for something and in this opportunity. They have a lot of. They have a lot of evidence that argues in their favor that had their Bandai conservative government or had there been a more classical government that just rubberstamps projects and doesn't really take into account all the cumulative impacts of Oil Sands Development and climate liability and climate risk. The this project would have

Journalist Gets Paid to Host Outdoor Activities
"Jobs are only great until they are for ten in years Shannon. Brian got to write for major news outlet in me. She covered popular happy hours brunches and the best hills for sledding but layoffs offs roll through the newsroom. Every couple of years wages froze and some of our bosses didn't seem to value what she brought to the table. Shannon was frustrated so in early twenty fifteen. She decided to create something that she had more control over. She started a small website where she brought about Paddle Board Yoga Cross country skiing and lesser known sports such such as Lightsaber combat as aerobics. Basically the thing she did with her friends on weekends like we have to have a whole episode on Lightsaber combat as aerobics. But that it'll be a project for another day Shannon's followers on social media. Were already asking questions. Like how hard was that class. Do they do it every Thursday and can I use rechargeable batteries for my lightsaber. Shannon suspected that if active people in Maine were asking these questions of her it meant they were probably searching for this information as well and there wasn't a single website that answer them so she created vitmain dot com one hundred and fifty dollars bought her a domain hosting and a wordpress theme only other expenses. Starting out where the cost of taking the classes and attending the event she was writing about this range from an additional forty to one hundred fifty dollars a month and she was occasionally able to workout deals from studios at first fit main was just for fun and she didn't intend to make it profitable. It was something she worked on a few hours here and there whenever she could squeeze it in she was schedule a day or two each week to go to classes and then right up the content but seven months after she launched the site another round of financial woes hit her dream job and the company offered Shannon a moderate buyout. She took the buyout and picked up some freelance gigs including editing a women's magazine and guiding bike tours around me in her mind those were just temporary kicks. She was ready to grow her website into something that made real money. That main didn't attract many local advertisers. At least at first I so she moved to Google ads to start generating revenue. That also. Didn't make much but it was something. The real change happened. In January two thousand nineteen when and Shannon launched the main social club a paid membership club they ventures out to do all the fun adventurous things she writes about when Shannon launched the club. She she mailed knit hat embroidered with the phrase main is my gym. Every person who signed up the first month or early adopters so to speak of the twenty or so people who pay to hang out out with her and be part of a club. That didn't really exist yet. Shannon didn't know half of them not excited her people who didn't know her signed up because they thought it was a good idea but it was also also scary but if they didn't like it what they hated the events Shannon almost hoped they didn't show up but they did and they kept showing. The club was is growing beyond her network but she still needed to get the message out to more people. She did that by going to the places she knew her potential customers would be. She attended public events where she'd she'd find active locals paddle races and ten K.'s. Costume bike rides bootcamp an even go yoga. Although as far as I can tell there was no yoga with light. Savers favors which would be even more amazing. Somebody's to do that. Shannon would show up relate to every event with a pocket full of Maine stickers. And she'd walk up to people and ask if she could simply simply take their picture for her website. A lot of people said yes and most of those one of the sticker. Afterwards they visit the site to see their photos and hopefully find more content they liked and Shannon spent about seventy five dollars on those stickers which she designed herself directed a significant amount of traffic to recite these days fit main dot com receives receives around seven thousand page views a month but way more engagement happens on social media. She sees a bump in social shares page likes whenever she writes especially Good Story Review Review and she's gotten better at assessing. What sort of story will get attention? That's what currently drives the most engagement. But she still hands out stickers all the time the front end of our business comes easily for Shannon content creation meeting people interacting online but when it comes to money that's been a learning curve and figuring out her rates under Charging or not charging it all problem for a long time. Currently she charges fifteen to twenty dollars a month for that membership Shannon's still struggles with translating the value of her work into a dollar amount per sponsors advertisers. This barrier has been her biggest and she believes it's health fit main back from being as profitable as it could have been by this point. She's looking to friends and colleagues who work in marketing to give her a box and she recently started working with the coach. Still that Maine is seen progress especially in the past year businesses now into cover classes and events and between the club memberships which now up to eighty four content and event promotion and selling a bit of Swag Vitmain is bringing in around twenty five hundred dollars a month and her aim is to grow considerably before the end of the year.

Investing Your Resources with Craig Groeschel
"We get to have a conversation with Craig Rochelle. He's one of our summit twenty twenty speakers and he's the pastor of one of the largest churches in America and today today he's going to teach you the business owner on one of the topics that he's deeply passionate about resource allocation. Because here's the deal if you're a business owner you you need a focus plan for where you are investing your time your talent your money and your energy and has craig lays out in this conversation conversation. There are a few things about resource allocation that we all need to focus on so we're talking about resource allocation nation. And if you think about just the two words what our resources resources would be the time the money the staff the assets. Whatever we we have to move the mission forward and then allocation comes from the word allocate which means just to direct or distribute and so the most simple definition that? I had that I work with our team. On with resource allocation is investing the available resources in the present took -CCOMPLISH your goals and your objectives in the future. What do we have? How can we invest to bring about the desired results in the future? So that's my best definition of resource allocation and I love that you use that word invest and I. I know that you use that word intentionally. Can you explain to us kind of the mindset around that word invest. Yes so Alex. In my early years years of leadership I tended to think about spending resources rather than investing them and I think a lot of times business owners leaders of nonprofits. We we think we need to spend the budget. We need to spend our time. And in my opinion that's kind of a lower level thinking as leaders what we should do instead thinking about spending what we have if we change our mindset to investing then it really does change how. We approach our resources because if I'm spending I don't expect to get something back or at best. I'm getting a trade meeting. I might spend seventy five dollars in exchange for a pair of shoes if I'm investing seventy five dollars though. I'm hoping for a better return. In other words I might get back eight hundred dollars if I invest it wisely and so as leaders of businesses and says or whatever our organizations would be it sounds like a play on words but I really really believe. It's way more than that in our mindsets. We don't want to spend our resources because at best we're getting a trade we want to say. How can we take whatever we have? The people time the energy the money any kind of capital assets and and how can we invest them toward the mission and believing this will get us a better return in the end. You said that it was a shift. You made individually internally Mullaly do you remember what the motivation or the impetus behind that shift from spending to investing was. I wish I could say it was like in a moment. I think it kind of evolved over time in the early years of our leadership and I say ours because I might have been the point leader but I've never been the seller leader. We've always lead with a team. We thought when it came to resources we often had a scarcity mindset and not an abundance mindset if you have a scarcity mindset. You always tend to think. Well there's not enough to go around we'RE GONNA lose out and we're going to be super super careful and that's why someone with a scarcity mindsets generally afraid to invest because they I think if I invest in. This doesn't go well. I'm not going to have enough. I think in the beginning Alex mindset had to grow from a scarcity mindset. Meaning you know. We only have so much money. Money to we actually can create more money. We can create a product that brings money we can cast vision for change lies which attracts money and moving. I'm from scarcity. We don't have enough mindset to an abundance mindset gave me the ability to then start shifting my assets from spending them and always afraid we're not gonNA have enough to say okay. We can invest meaning. We can take risks and what we actually want. Is We want to return. And so before long we started using a really common business term return on investment. But that's just a normal phrase shoes all all the time everywhere in our organization when we invest our time our people our resources we buy this piece of land. We've hired staff member. We buy some new software. We want uh we want to return on the investment. What type of return do we expect when we invest this resource and if we can get our whole team thinking that way not just the senior leaders the executive team or whatever but everyone on the front lines thinking this way it will change the way we manage resources are organizations and I love that you kind of clarified there? This is not just related to your financial decisions for your organization. This is where you're spending your time individually as a leader. This is where you're investing into into the talent of your organization into the leadership of your organization. It kind of runs the gamut. Is that right. Well one hundred percent and I think a lot of times as leaders. When we think of you've reached source allocation? A lot of people tend to drift toward money. You know where we're gonNA invest the resources we have. We have a limited amount of capital or such but I think that it equally Julio or more important than money would be our time because we can earn more money though we cannot make more time and we do have a limited amount of time is so as leaders. We can be really really busy. And not have a great return or we can be really strategic on who invest in where we spend our time how we try to use czar influence and resources in so unquestionably our time really matters and then our people would be really at the top of the list of our valuable resources and if we see them not just as someone who's going to get us return but as we see them as an investment we want invest in them and help them get better if they can grow in their leadership if they can become more capable leaders if they can expand their influence then ultimately that can help the whole organization win and so yes. We have to think broadly sadly our people matter. Our time matters are influence matters. All these things are resources that we need to strategically allocate and. We're not going to become great by accident and many ways. That's what Dave Ramsey teachers all the time you know every dollar has a name. We know where it's going to go. We don't get out out of debt accidentally. We have to be intentional about it. And I'm choosing you know in your personal finance. It might be. I'm choosing to give first and then then I'm choosing to save next and then I'm I'm choosing to pay off these bills and resource allocation. That's at simplisafe. That's what your team teaches all the time and that's what we need to teach our leaders and again Alex not just our senior leaders not just our finance team. This needs to be interwoven into the culture so that everyone on the team recognizes this is we are all allocating very important resources and what we do with them really does matter and I know you lay out some specific actions that leaders leaders and team should take with regard to this topic of resource allocation as you walk through these. I want to challenge our listeners to really be running through the lens of okay how what am I doing in this arena with regard people with regard to my time with regard to my finances of the business with regard to time as a whole because I think that this is a really exceptional exceptional exercising kind of self evaluation looking in the mirror. But I'd love for you to start with that first action and it's kind of related to just starting with the end in mind as leaders. We have to do Alex. We we have to clearly define the win and that sounds almost insultingly simple but the tragedy is this often doesn't happen in the organization if you walk into a business and you ask ten different people. You know what's your win. What are you trying to accomplish? You might get ten different answers. And that's not not acceptable so we always say that you can't accomplish what you can't define. What is the win? Something that we're working on this year we plan on the opening Six New Church buildings in in different cities and states. And so you could say. That's the win but Audi really limited when because if we open them all all and they all have only fifty people coming or they're all understaffed than other appropriate team members. Then that's not really a win so we can't just say we. We want to grow revenue by twenty percent. We WanNA open up Two new branches or whatever. We need to be really really really clear. What is the win? How many people do we need becoming? Look what type of revenue do. We need. What kind of culture? We're trying to create and be super super clear on the win. If we can be clear on the win then we can start looking at the second step. which is we're investing toward that when we're intentionally trying to create the win and I think a lot of times what happens is we're trying to implement what might be five or six or seven year old wins? Meaning we're we're still you know. Someone had an initiative years ago. And now we're just coasting in our organizations and we're doing what we did in the past and and not looking at. What is the fresh win? What are we trying to accomplish today? If that's the goal then what do we need to do with our time with our money with our people. Our Team are enough to invest it very specifically toward that direct

Diesel's latest Wear OS watch puts a fresh design on aging tech
"Of watches of fossil group also had a few new watches to show off so one of their brands diesel. The the original diesel smartwatch came out a few years ago and it was like this massive watch. They came up with another one last year. That was a think a little bit smaller smaller had a different design. And they've made a new one with another design this here and this is the Diesel Fade light and I think this is definitely the most this unique where I've ever seen like I. It's the design subjective. I don't know if it's for everyone. I don't think I could pull this off uh-huh but it's again you have to look at the pictures but it's got like this cool translucent frame the sort of looks like the transparent colored plastic ask a lot of nineties electronics so like if you can think of like the the transparent in sixty four this kind of looks like that so What I saw this my immediate? The thought is if you love the look and art style of the ready player one movie this is for you this one sentece. Yeah Yeah It comes in a couple colors. So there's like a bright red and a gray on a blue and then there's one that's just like white translucent plastic and there's a pretty wild ban that comes with all of them that's like a bunch of different colors and patterns so anyway this is extremely loud. Watch but I. I'm a Fan Donovan. I don't know if I'd wear it but I like it. I like how this looks and thankfully Again they they didn't tell us a lot of technical details about this watch. It sounds like it's just the fossil Jin five and a different frame because it does have a snapdragon thirty one hundred They said more storage space. So I'm assuming that's eight gigs. Just like the Gen five Google pay support. Gps Fun stuff so This watch will be released in March twenty nine. I put March Twenty nineteen crap. That's March twenty twenty. I'm sorry I need to go fix that. It will cost two hundred seventy five dollars which was the same. Ms Ms Rpm the Gen five so maybe they'll come down in price too audibly. But I have to say for diesel to come out with anything. It's it's I guess average price or normal price. That's rare diesel is a is a true fashion brand and everything I've ever seen from them is usually good like five to ten times what you would expect it to be from anybody else. Yeah this is cool watch I I like this more of this
Planet Money Investigates The Origins Of The Sperm Bank

Who might want to have children later later on but it remained a niche industry? There really wasn't a great market for their services until HIV after several women contracted HIV from fresh sperm. Donations pins in the eighties fertility. Doctors recommended against its use from then on anyone seeking donor sperm on the medical market would need frozen sperm. which was quarantined and retested? Later on to make sure it was `virus-free they had to turn to these Burbank's who had all the infrastructure for freezing sperm and testing donors shipping shipping the sperm out and his laws and social norms around same sex parenting and single motherhood have shifted so too has spurned. Banking's customer base craft says that seventy five percent its customers are now single women and same sex couples almost says the. US sperm industry has grown dramatically in part because it remains vastly underregulated which which has raised a host of ethical concerns. Sometimes sperm donors will have fifty offspring or a hundred and fifty and in part that's because these sperm firm banks are businesses and they are collecting sperm from people they spend a lot of money screening at the same time. Mulling points out. Countless families might not have otherwise gotten and started if it weren't for these sperm banks and the broader market for sex cells. That sells with a C..
