Sylvester Stallone Is Sporting a Bad Toupe in 'Tulsa King'

"I saw a trailer for the TV show Tulsa king. Starring Sylvester Stallone. A Tyler, I'm sorry, Taylor, Sheridan production. Taylor shouting is the man. I mean, we're talking king a mayor of Kingstown, Yellowstone, 1883, the last cowboy, the movies, hell or high water, Sicario, wind river, this guy, I mean, he writes while you sleep, he writes while you shit. This guy is so prodigious. But I saw the trailer. And I gotta tell you. I'm bothered by something. I can't wait to see Sylvester Stallone in a TV series, but I can't take the toupee. I can't take the plastered on toupee. It's just, it's just too much. It's too much. It's bothering me. And you know what? I have to confess. I haven't said anything for a long time. Because of my relationship with him, okay? We're Friends. But can you imagine having to do all that shit with your hair? Before the director calls action, when is the last time we saw an old actor age gracefully? Really? Like in the old days, Paul Newman would age gracefully. Robert Redford. I mean, there's so many actors in the 70s and 80s, and even the 90s who didn't go for the tube.

"Here's some headsets. I just can't with this guy. I mean, when he's been on the show, he's just been straight up and I know, and we've had him on a bunch of times. We met him when we were in D.C. at the All-Star Game, but just hey. How about one step? Let's talk about that. Hold on a second. Let's talk about this. All right, let's take a break. I want to tell you, I want to say what's been done right and what one thing needs to be fixed. How about that? Positivity. Positivity, but there's still one thing that still needs to be fixed. Also, Richard, there's an NFL fan base right now that after your top 5 is not filling you. Fantastic. I want to hear about that. I want to hear about that. The one thing that baseball hasn't fixed yet, our amend to two, and I'll tell you one thing right now. Fans can not go to games, dressed like this chiropractor anymore. He's a star now. He isn't. He is a star now. He's taking selfies at the gym. His name is mesh. Is that his name? Sheridan Mitch, doctor Michelle. So somebody basically corner him and saying, doctor Michelle, man, my neck is killing me, but before we do, something you want to take a picture. And he's taking a selfie with him and the guy's like, it's like right down here. That's the before, then the after is after he's twisted his neck. Bye bye. Amazing. Smoke it. How many people were watching that game? That's my chiropractor. 13. And we're like, who is this moron? We need to know. I mean, my man's comfortable.

"And as you were talking about earlier in the show, that's a little bit of work. How do you do that? I usually start thinking in Ulysses because I can do it on the Mac and on the iPad. And so in the morning I sit in bed having a cup of coffee and I'll tend to write sometimes from the iPad and it's a good place to think again because I don't get to mess around with a lot. I get frustrated fairly quickly though because part of the way I think is with images. So as I'm trying to describe something like right now I'm in the middle of writing up a post about audio hijack in the new changes without audio hijack four and I need the screenshots to picture what I'm going to say, which seems kind of counterintuitive. A lot of people like markdown because you can't do that kind of thing sort of back to our right with a pencil when you want to think story. But I think along those images. What do I want to capture when I'm talking about this? What is the thing I'm going to try to show? And so I fairly quickly will switch over to Mars edit, which is where I actually create the blog post. I wish Mars had it ran on the iPad. I just wish that with every fiber of my being. And I bother Daniel gel cut about it on a regular basis. That's an app that allows me to write still in markdown and I can just drag in an image and I've set up a bunch of little, I forget what he calls them, but they're basically settings you can set so that I have I like all of my images to be in figures. And I like them right justified most of the time, but I've got a right left and center justified option, and it puts in the alt text for me for the image. I can change it, but it takes the name of the file. And I'm always careful. I need my files according to what I want the alt text to be. So I only have to name it once. And then I can change the width and make it fit and look nice while I'm working. And Mars edit, then is where I publish from. And again, I wish that was on the iPad so I could do a little bit more back and forth. That is where I usually finish it up. Did you say amen? I did say amen. Yeah, I love Mark said it. I publish everything on 5 Phil pixels through it. And would love an iOS version of it for sure. Yeah, everybody right to Daniel gel kit. Red dash sweater dot com. Is that right? Rhett's sweater dot com. That's red sweater. I don't know if there's a dash or not, but it is red sweater..

"It's famous now, right? The grid of four having basically four computer for cell professional consumer desktop notebook and, you know, in your post, you go into, that's all more complicated now, and even just talking about it here. It's like, why isn't the M1 pro in something else? Where do these lines fall? But yeah, all those old Macs with the skull and crossbones over them. It was a little dark for me. I'll just say. It is sad. It's an ugly diagram, too, because every Mac looked different, so the color palette is revolting. Yeah. I don't like looking at a lot of different beige going on. But it doesn't make you see why he killed them. You know, he looked at it and he said, I don't even know how to tell my friends and family which one to buy. That 20th anniversary Mac, man. It's beautiful. It's not a pretty computer. Come on. I don't man. I remember when that came out looking at it because back in the day there was a store called, I don't know if it's a rounding or called the sharper image. Sure. Oh yeah. And they'd sell you like a $100 back scratcher or some stupid thing, right? I always felt like the 20 anniversary Mac was what sharper image customers went for. Aw. It was very much of its time, you know? And to be cool in futuristic they had to make some choices and all of those have aged well. But that's okay. Yeah. All right. What was good enough for Jerry Seinfeld? That's right. But yeah, I mean, I can't help you if you don't think it's, it's not beautiful, but I don't think it's ugly. I think it has a special place in Matt history. And I got one right here. It's right over my shoulder. You can come, you can come and apologize in person, David. Next time I will. I will. I'm very sorry, Mac. It is when you're looking at all these old Macs. Maybe I'm just an element of my time, but I feel like computers are much more beautiful now than they've ever been. I mean, all that plastic, there was only so much you could do. Yeah. No, you're not wrong. You're just not completely right either. I don't know that just disgusting. This is really the one. Some choices they made. What can we say? And you know, laptops, they had a certain look for a long time, just because that's what they had to be. I love that they went from those old black models to colors to white to then charging extra for black. Remember that? Yeah. On the macbooks, they got away with charging extra for max and people, oh, I'm getting the black one. Yeah. I actually just wrote an article about that a couple of weeks ago and people kind of came out of the woodwork of like, yeah, this is this is the one I got because it was so cool or I didn't get it 'cause I didn't want to spend the extra money and it's when you were doing it as long as you have. You can really see those like big eras we went from beige and apple being in trouble and then jobs coming back and like the great simplification and now they're the biggest company on the planet depending on what day of the week it is and they have all of these product lines. It's like different from how it was before but it's also their similarities and that's one thing that I like about what you publish because you have that perspective because you've been interested in this since the very beginning and you know I certainly try to fake it but I wasn't there in 84 and I think that's I think that's something cool that you bring to your audience. I'm sure they love it. Thanks. I do have to say this this chart is only complete because I asked Adam angst of tidbits to check it for me and I was missing like 8 of them. I don't know, I didn't scroll in Mac tracker or something I missed a whole bunch of them so when you want the precision and the history I may do do fairly well but Adam's the man. You know, you talk about pain extra for color but you do that now with the M1 iMac where at the base model there's only a few colors and if you buy the higher end spec one and granted it has more bells and whistles, but you also have more colors available and I have to wonder that if the rumors are true and we're going to get an M two MacBook Air with colors, are they going to do the same thing? Are you going to have to pay extra to get the higher spec if you want the certain colors? And oddly, in phones, it goes the other way, right? The cheaper ones have the colors. But if you're a pro, you clearly only need blue. Well, I mean, last week I took on the job of Apple vice president of naming, I would also like to take on the job of vice president of color distribution. And I would fix that immediately on page one. That's my cam colors. Colors matter. Colors are fun. Well, also, I just think that there's a certain part of being a person who likes Apple products that you like whimsy. You like the tortoise and the hair and the control center. There's been whimsy in their products over the years. I think they lost that for a while. And I hope that comes back. And putting colors in the pro products would be a nice way to do that. I'd also, I mean, this is something I'll probably never come true. But I'd love to see an Apple product with the rainbow logo on it again one day. Even if it's just like a special product, you know? I don't know, that would look so out of place nowadays, but maybe if it's the same kind of glow through, but it glows through in different colors. Maybe rotating colors. That'd be cool. Although, you know, I'm looking at the 20th anniversary Mac and it's got a cute little rainbow logo in the middle, so I'm changing my opinion. Got that little rainbow right on the front. This episode of Mac power users is made possible by indeed. Hunting down answers to your questions can be rewarding.

"I did this year in the Apple M1 family. And I dated it March 2020 March 2022 because I wanted to make sure I was ready to put a new version out when the next thing comes up. Yeah, now what do you guys think? Is the new Mac mini? 'cause there's been rumors of a redesign. I mean, I think it'd be only natural, but actually maybe not since the footprint is the same as the Mac studio. But do you think there's going to be a Mac mini that gets beyond the M two that there'll be an M1 pro Mac mini? I don't know. I think that Apple, at least so far in this has been really content to keep the consumer machines consumer. And it's not as simple as the grid of four to your house at your point in this blog post. But it seems like they're pretty okay with like, hey, this is the consumer thing, and they all have this chip, and if you need more than that, then we have these other solutions for you. Now the Mac mini, maybe the one machine that could straddle those lines a little bit, but I'm also going to have this also sort of have this hunch that maybe the next Mac mini won't look like they have for the last ten years. Maybe they'll be more distinction between it and the Mac studio visually that kind of helps answer the question. Yeah, that's a tough one because if they were going to make an M1 pro max studio, why didn't they just do that? And so that means it would only go on the Mac mini, but then can you put it in a Mac mini without a big heat sink, then it becomes a Mac studio, or does the Mac mini just become a fat Mac? You know, what happens there? Well, if you look historically, they had two grades of Mac mini. They had the consumer one and the pro one. And to me, I feel like probably the pro, if you look at that pro chip, which fits into MacBook pros, just fine, that don't have the same cooling system as the Mac studio. I could see a world where they come out with an M two Mac mini and maybe an M1 pro like Mac mini. That's a step up. And so instead of having 8 or 16 gigabytes of ram, you have 16 or 32, and you've got the M1 pro chip. And historically, they've had that product, and now they had an Intel version. I don't know if they're still selling it or not, but up until recently. Oh, they said they're still selling something in that slot. So I don't know. I mean, it's Apple, who the heck knows? But I could see them having two tiers of Mac mini, and that would fill the gap nicely. But I could also see them just saying, forget it. We're just going to have the M two Mac mini and there is no desktop M1 pro. Do you guys realize how long it's been since a an entirely new model of Mac existed with a whole new name? I think it's 16 years? Yeah, I mean, well, I guess it's the Intel transition whenever that was. Because MacBook, the one for MacBook reuse that name, so yeah, I guess it's like MacBook Pro, Mac pro. That sort of time frame. But I would even argue that that wasn't really a new class of machine. No. No, it was just a rebranding, really. I really think that maybe the first class of machine I was the MacBook Air was the last time there was a new class of Mac. The original one with the shuttle bay door on the USB port. One in the envelope? Yeah, I mean, because that was a completely different kind of Mac. I think there's a good argument to be made there. That was a new class. Ultralight in the first place. I'm talking about a whole name. Two, the max studio. Was a new name too. That's a type of MacBook. Just Mac studio. There's nothing before it, right? It is unique. It's not a variation on a theme. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. Steve and I were talking when that first announcement came down. What this really does is it takes the brakes off. So the Mac pro is going to be crazy ridiculous and expensive. I mean, they made the Mac studio for most of us. And then the very few people for whom that is not enough, get your checkbook out, gang, here it comes, you know? Have you ever owned a Mac pro Allison? No. I mean, we had cheese grater max back in the day before the laptops came out, but nope. Yeah. Me either. Well, I did until very recently. Oh, you no longer own it? No, it's been sold. Oh, okay. Well, move on. Did you give it a hug before you sent it off? It was sadder than I thought it would be. I bet. A little bit. I think you did the right thing, though. Get some money out of it while you can. Oh, yeah. Yeah, there was too much value in it for it to just go straight into the collection. You know, I could find another one in 15 years. It'll be okay. Yeah, yeah. Well, I guess that kind of tipped your hand to what we're going to be talking about later. You must give us like your new machine. Yeah, I do. I do. Also, I did have a question to circle back to the diagramming for a second. I'm not a huge mind map person. I just don't really think that way. But when I do use that as a tool, I have a tendency to sit down with my iPad and use my Apple pencil and it just feels kind of like a visual way of putting something together when you're sort of in this creative process of putting something together visually in a diagram. Is that a tool that you pick up the iPad for? Do you have that relationship to it that I do? Or is this a pretty Mac centric workflow for you? This has all been Mac centric. I'm trying to think about whether diagrams dot net would let you draw with the pencil. I didn't actually thought that about that. I should try that. I do use my pencil and I use it and I think David's going to love this in particular. I use it when I need to think. And what I mean by that is in the old days when I would when I was working and I had to do a lot of annoying, disgusting PowerPoint presentations. Nobody wanted to listen to. I found that if I sat down in front of the computer and I opened PowerPoint, I would spend 80% of my time figuring out how to indent so that it made sense and getting the font right and changing the font size. And I find it even worse in keynote. Irritates me quite a bit, but what I discovered was if I went to the recycle bin next to the copier and I grabbed a bunch of pieces of paper.

"Mac power users episode 635 workflows with Alison Sheridan. Hello everyone, this is David sparks. I am your host, and I'm joined by my co host, mister Steven Hackett. How are you today, Stephen? I'm a good David. How are you? Oh man, it's so fun making back power users and doing the show every week. I'm having a great time. Good, a great day. We got another year. It's all good, brother. It's all good. And we got a friend on the show today. Welcome to the show Allison Sheridan. Hello, gentlemen. How are you? I was and I was looking because you've been a friend of mine since before Mac power users existed. I don't think you've ever been on the show before. You know, I was trying to remember that. I thought you said I had been once, but maybe I dreamt it. Yeah, after 635 episodes, okay, I'm glad you thought I was worthy by now. We wrote that down one day when you and I were at macworld. I said, and when we get to 6 35, then we'll put a if you don't know Allison, Alison is over at pod feet. She's been podcasting longer than the Mac power users has been existence. How many shows you got over there now, Allison? Oh, I should know that off the top of my head. It's more than 800. I know that. It's been going for 17 years without missing an episode. It'll be, sorry, it'll be 17 years in May, without missing an episode and it comes out every single week. Yeah, and you do it on the weekend, and it's a great show. 8 82, almost 900. Yeah, that's nice. I was looking the other day, I've got a bunch of when I add up all my shows, I have published a lot of podcasts in my time in the chair. I do think that that every week thing becomes a burden though, right at some point. Yeah, so I also do a series called chit chat across the pond and I would never have invented this way, but it's two shows. It's chit chat across the pond light, which is me interviewing people I find interesting in tech. And then the other half of it is programming by stealth with Bart bouchat, where we're doing a programming podcast in an audio podcast, which sounds really crazy. But it's actually working. And the light chitchat across the pond is the one that I like better because it hasn't, it has missed weeks. And once I realized it had miss weeks, I went, oh, okay, if I feel like it, I will, but I don't always do it. It comes out pretty often, but you know, maybe three times a month. It's like getting the first scratch on a new car. It's like, okay, now I can breathe over. It's okay. Actually, I lied about three times a week. A month, it's every other week. So it might be one or two per month because programming by stealth is the opposite one. Very confusing. But yeah, very much like the first scratch. And we had a few times where Katie couldn't make it or if you know, Stephen couldn't make it. I haven't missed an episode of Mac power news yet. And it's starting to feel like a weight around my neck. We got like family stuff out. No, I really have to get this recorded. I can't make this the one that I miss. I don't want to lie though. I have not always been the host of every show. When I go on vacation, usually Bart Bouchard's and Alistair janks take over. And actually Katie has done the show before. She did it a couple of times. And a couple other people. So yeah, it's not always me, but the show has never missed. The show must go on. Exactly. Well, Allison, how did you get started with well, actually before we get started on talking to Allison, we do have a couple of announcements this week. On more power users today, Steven received delivery of a very pretty white apple box with a heavy box looking device inside of it. So you got your new Mac, right? Yeah, I spent all weekend setting up my Mac studio and I've got some early impressions we can talk about for members, a spoiler alert. It's very good. Yeah. I'm sure it is. I'm not sure. I might actually tune out for that section. Just let Steven talk. It might not be good for me to be present for that. But we're going to do that for more power users today. I am doing a webinar. I've been trying to do one about every 6 weeks. So I've got one scheduled for April 21st. It's all about calendar workflows. I've been talking on the show lately about all the crazy stuff I'm doing with my calendar. We've been working on it in the labs and a bunch of lab numbers. And I have given me feedback. And I have got some good workflows for the calendar. So it's going to be April 21st at 10 a.m., the initial batch of emails went out. I thought it was on a 24 hour clock, but it wasn't so it went at 10 p.m.. It's not team DM. It's 10 a.m., guys. Of course. So April 21st, 10 a.m.. We'll put a link in the show notes. You can sign up for that webinar if you want to check it out. But Allison, how did you get started with your interest in Apple? Oh, okay. Actually, in 1984, our friend Calvin Yun bought a one 28 K Mac. And he asked us to come over to his house and see it. And it wasn't actually me who thought that's what we got to have. It was my husband, Steve. And so we ended up buying the 5 12 K Mac and had so much fun with it. There was basically never any decision beyond that. Faltered a little bit during the terrible years. But a used Mac from a friend of mine didn't quite get my nerve up to buy another new one, but luckily rode that wave out and never looked back. I never had a Windows machine in my house other than something I brought home from work. So it's been all Mac, all Apple all the time. It was such a, I mean, for people who are younger, I really can't understate the difference between the Mac and everything else at the time. It was like night and day. I can describe that really well in just a little tiny nugget here. We had compaq computers that work with actual tape cassette tapes that you wrote things on and I was trying to write a Pascal program. And I was really struggling with it and trying to get it to work. And then they brought a Mac into my office and I put the same program in and it put a bug on the screen, like a bug, you know? Like with legs and everything. Next to the line that was wrong. And I went, oh, there it is. And I thought, well, that's a different way to do it. Yeah. I mean, I've said this on the show before, but for me, it was the system preferences when you because everything was command line. So if you wanted to change the key press speed, you had to figure out the command line incantation. And with this, it was a tortoise and a hare. And I'm like, okay, these guys get it. And that was like the beginning of the computer revolution, as far as I'm concerned. I mean, people that had IBM PCs, even Apple twos, you had to be you had to have an inherent inherent nerd level to do that stuff, because everything was command line. And once it gets the nerd level, but for everybody to embrace computers, it took the user and the graphical user interface. And I remember at the time, the big battle was the folks who said who said we don't need the GUI. It's like, oh no, it's okay. We can all do command line. We don't need this craziness, right? My brother said we never need a mouse. What would we need a mouse for? It's always something. We don't need to touch interface. We don't need whatever it is. We don't need it anymore. I do have to say, though, when the 5 12 K Mac was out, and everybody was using it, we'd gone to the Mac plus and everything, people started saying we needed a bigger screen and I said, why would you ever need a bigger screen than that?.

"Parents. Virginia Loudon County Parents Rally of school board malls transgender critical race theory policies. Isn't that quite shocking that a school board is even thinking about those things? Isn't it? Rather than actual education. I'm reading here. Let's see here. Just bear with me before we get to our sponsor. Um please, Computer. Don't don't let me down now. Here we go. Loudon County School Board meeting on transgender policy shut down after crowd gets unruly one arrested The Latin County School board shut down a public meeting Tuesday on a new policy involving transgender students. See this is being ignored. But not in American Marxism. After people at the meeting report reportedly started speaking over public commenters and refused to cooperate. One person was arrested. There was at least one person, injured authority said. You're going to see how law abiding citizens are going to be brutalized. Whereas black lives matter and teeth and so forth are allowed to do pretty much whatever they want to do. There are no details yet on the arrest or what the person is being charged for another person was issued a summons on a trespassing charge. Trespassing charge. Trespassing charge. You kidding me? The Loudon County School board ended the public comments section of its June 22 meeting on a unanimous vote after chair Brenda Sheridan. Repeatedly warned the attendees in the boardroom. That loud public demonstration highlighted the decorum of the meeting. Wasn't this a mostly peaceful protest, Mr Producer.

Ah hope was not working there now. Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department deputy chief Craig.

So whole has had contact with local law enforcement officials who seized in a legal gun from him last year. It was last night that whole carrying a rifle began shooting randomly outside the FedEx facility where four people were killed in the parking lot.

New York State Is Set to Raise Taxes on Those Earning Over $1 Million

"It's time to check in with our correspondent in the big apple. That's henry reese sheridan. Today he delves like an over caffeinated accountant into the controversial plan to raise taxes on the rich in new york. Take it away henry. New york contains an enormous number of very rich people. The figures for twenty twenty onto yet but in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred ten thousand four hundred thirty five ultra high net worth individuals. There's people with more than thirty million. Us dollars in that worth called the big apple home. That's more than any other city in the world. New relationship to its rich residents is fraught one on the one hand. Presence of very rich people brings prestige spending power and lots of tax dollars on the other hand. New york city's rich are extremely good as segregating themselves from the rest of society particularly in the fields of education healthcare and housing when not extracting a service from them the less wealthy of new york no the richer here and they're told by politicians from the right to the center of the political spectrum to feel thankful for that but it can be difficult to understand whether tax dollars of the wealthier going when the city's basic infrastructure is in such bad shape politicians a scared to tax the rich as individual careerists. They fear wealthy donors will abandon them if taxes are raised and all but the most leftist governments tend to be swayed by the belief that the wealthy will leave if they are taxed too heavily. Decimating the tax base. This is why historically new york governor andrew cuomo has been soft on taxing the rich in fact cuomo is so scared of the rich leaving new york city. He's willing to go to extreme measures to keep them here.

DawgNation's Mike Griffith Makes Wild Accusations About the Potential of Georgia Football

"Going to read you a comment. That danny sheridan gave to us. I think it was about a week ago. Danny was picking the final four and he georgia to go to the final four this coming season and he said i would say the fourteen would be. George think georgia is loaded in. Georgia does not win this year. They are not going to win for a long time. And by that i mean. Get to the final four. Do you think this is the season as georgia is. Getting playoff are bus for kirby smart and his team. Yeah i've heard that the last few years in kirby keeps finding players in georgia keep finding ways to contend being a contender and actually doing. It are two different things. But what georgia's john paul. As they've stayed in the conversation or as curry says you gotta keep getting those at bats and when he finished in the top ten. Four straight years as georgia's don you recruit as well as kirby has you give yourself a chance and georgia's become known as a place that quarterbacks like to come now. The results have not always blossomed. Is much as people would like but you look at this roster now and jt daniels. Looks like one of the best quarterbacks in the country coming back. He's a former five-star they signed broadband. A grip he was a five star. Wants committed oklahoma. Now they've got gunner stockton committed a twenty twenty two five star. I mean my goodness talent is everywhere and now it's just a matter georgia finishing the job on football field. Which brings me one more comment and we don't we. Don't go out looking at other shows to bring you information. We take it from our own program. And i believe those two weeks ago booger mcfarland. We all know boogers credentials. He said this on on our show he said if you are a bulldog fan and you're going to sit there and stare honestly in the eye kirby has done less with more than maybe even mark. Rick how would you respond to that. Wow i guess. I'd say first of all you've got to get more right. You've got to have those recruiting classes in the top two or three. That's a good problem to apple and as far as doing more with less they're less with pernille they're getting ready. You can't if you can't finish the job though mike. That's i mean you're you're you're you're you're playing right in to what these guys are saying georgia out recruit anyone would maybe the exception of alabama But when are they going to finish the job. That's the question that georgia fans are asking. Yeah it's it's been tough when you win the sec. Three years in a row. And you lose to alabama in the sec championship. Game and twenty eight teeny get left out of the playoff for you. Come within one play of winning the national title twenty seventeen. I mean. i can't answer those questions for you. Know it's funny. You had ryan mcgee up there a few minutes ago talking about the late. Great dale earnhardt. He didn't win the daytona five hundred until his twentieth attempt. So those big game. Victories can be kind of a lucid. And i think that's happened for george. Remember paul kirby smart is only forty five years old. This is only year six for him. You look at how long it took guys. Like steve spurrier and nick sabin and they were six seven years into their careers before they got their national titles.

Trump's achievements in the Middle East

"Donald. Trump's foreign policy is all too often met with derision or simply chairmanship? Isn't it? The critics Maki's diplomacy and they pan the choice of son-in-law Jared Kushner as a Middle East envoy. However just dies away from the US presidential election. Trump has had a few certifiable victories to put in his closing advertising pitch to the American people. I'm of course referring to the peace deals between Israel and Bahrain the United Arab Emirates and Sudan these have been brokered by the trump administration well to tell us more about the significance of these Abraham. Cords. For the Prophet of Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Let's tune to Greg. Sheridan, he's foreign editor of the Australian Gregg welcome back to the show. Glad to be with your. Greg, your assessment of trump foreign policy generally. Well I think. The media has done generally around the world agree poor job on analyzing trump because themselves have become. So polarized there the all against trump or a small minority of the mural for trump whereas I trump has had some wins and some losses. stylistically he's been very unorthodox and at times on counterproductive but you can look back inside that what trump has been a bath is being creating leverage. The United States in K. relationships is put tariffs on China, and that gives him something to negotiate with Jonah He's put sanctions on Iran that. Gives him something that Iran wants to get rid of an in every relationship? He's got leverage for the United States. Now I think he's done a lot of specific things that have actually been quite good. You can certainly criticize the way he talks about alliances, but it these actions rather than his words quite a lot of the things he's done have been very successful especially in Asia and the Middle East is increased the US military budget more than any other president and American allies. Niger very happy about that the allies in Asia. Have Been Critical of China and most inclined to stand up against Jonah namely Japan India Vietnam Singapore Australia a couple of Damon our full hours course I very good relationship with trump role. Bilaterally, a lot of his relationships been very successful India and Australia. His administration has built the quotes the quadrilateral security dialogue. He has recognized the nature of the Chinese threat to the international system and do American interests better than any other president. Andy's moved the debate along at the same time. There's been a lot of chaos in his administration, the White folks terrible but I think he's had some real wins and I think he's done very well in the Middle East. Okay. We're talking about the Middle East You have argued in the astride newspapers I amount to a major step forward in the pace there why these Arab states altering their relations with Israel is it because of the mutual fee of Iran or is it because the US has leaned on the Motley? Well it's by the size I think Tom plus some other factors as well, but you've just got to pause. And model at the size of trump's achievement in and. To even out of these words, probably you know get you sort of condemned by all international relax plots society at. A. O. Over knocks the of international relations would would excommunicate you for saying it. But you know Israel has five peace treaties with Arab nations. Three of them have come under Donald Trump. He has said we back Israel one hundred percent is move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem tremendous symbolic sign of his commitment to Israel. But he has said we all sat back the security of the Gulf Arab states and are opposed to Iran and we kind to put sanctions on it. We think the nuclear deal when far enough now, the Gulf Arab states all agree with trump about Iran. But also items cells to some extent lost interest in the Palestinian cause. They're certainly not going to allow Palestinian view of Israel to be a roadblock. Now, they say Israel is a very good security Patna and they are encouraged by the US administration to might place with Israel if you just change in your ABC's ready national with me Tom Switzer my guest is Greg Sheridan foreign editor of the Australian. Now Greg you've been one of Australia's leading defenders of Middle East policy for decades. Trump came to power on an America I strategic. He's goal a piece to be to reduce significantly America's military role in the Middle East. We just talked about this grand aimed Iranian coalition that can contain tyron wants the Americans have gone given that America is now energy independent moralists isn't this retrenchment from the middle. East if trump is reelected, isn't that a good thing? Well. I think. It's makes Grill Tom. I think it is probably a good thing. The thing tonight is about trump is that on the whole he has implemented a lot of his foreign policy promises. If you put trump's record on the Middle East, all together it's pretty impressive. The US defeated Isis and he's decided that the Iranian. Nuclear deal is a very bad deal. I agree with him about that because it recognizes the legitimacy of Iran's nuclear industry allows enrichment of uranium a whole lot of other things and then allows in a very short period of time I'm sales to rent said trump said that's completely unacceptable. He wants a new and much better they'll, and in the meantime he's applying sanctions to Iran. has significantly diminished Iran's ability to cause mayhem in the region but that brings me to the point about what happens if Joe Biden is elected knicks wiggle the polls. Many of the pundits the betty markets point to a Democratic victory next week if a bottom administration comes to POW, Greg dozen that increase the chances of everything you've just been saying being wound back, I? Mean wouldn't Baden for example. Revert to the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. Well Eight. That's what he says he'll do allow. Kind of the problem. So the final point from the past there is that trump is not engaged in any new military adventures whereas even Bama engaged in the regime change in Libya which had absolutely eleven offers consequences now, Baden. It's very unclear. What kind of Administration Baden will provide his advisors at the moment seemed to be dominated by retreads from the second, I. Bob. Administration Susan Rice and Ben Rides. But then his party has moved along why for an elect- with Anastazia. Cortes and Bernie Sanders and the influence of the crew he says he's going to make climate change the center of all of his foreign policy I think. He may repeat a mistake of trump's, which is simply to try to undo everything his predecessor is done whereas trump has left Baden assuming button does win trump was left on a lot of leverage tramples. Authorized the elimination of the commander of the Iranian could force SOMAINI and. The, Iranians, like everyone else are scared of trump and they're. Constrained by not knowing what he's going to do even though he hasn't done any major military intervention, I don't think I've boughten will WANNA put more troops back into the Middle East or anything like that. The story of the last ten or twelve years really has been Americans will will say trying to get out of the Middle East and finding it very, very difficult to do so but Baden would be. Tremendously mistaken if he didn't try to capitalize on the successes, trump might I certainly don't think he's GonNa WanNa Talk Sudan or by Ryan will will the United Arab Emirates? Out of normalization with Israel, but will is administration base smart enough to keep it going with other Gulf states in trump was saying the other day that he thinks Saudi. Arabia can might place. With Israel, we'll that would been shattering. That would be I don't tectonic shift in the Middle East and Baden if he's smart or his administration as. Will keep going down that road and then God bless them. They can get all the accolades for forever success they won't themselves. But if they get back to the Paragon the John Kerry paradigm, you've gotTa somehow miraculously solve the Palestinian problem before we can do anything else Well, I think it could be much less effective than trump.

Coronavirus: impact on the retail industry

"That the prospects of relief package are now officially zero President Trump said today on the stump that there will be one a package that is after the election. Td On that, depending on how things turn out. But with the virus set to have its way. Once again with this economy, as case numbers rise, there is real damage being done are chosen example of which today is retail more virus means less shopping and eating out. In stores and restaurants can't pay their rent, which means landlords can't pay their mortgages, which means eventually they default case in point the mall owner Pennsylvania. Investment Trust, which is disclosed. It's gotten a loan default notice from one of its lenders. The company says it is working out a deal, but it also says bankruptcy is an option marketplace's Merrill Sarah explains what happens next When it gets to the point where a mall owner can't make its loan payments or has to contemplate bankruptcy the domino's just keep falling from there. David our back is an institutional trader with World Equity Group. Everybody loses out the banks that lent it money. Also the company's investors and the other businesses and people it owes money to for a mall owner that'd be utilities water gas electricity internal employees for PENRICO maintenance guys at the various mall properties. They could all take a hit in bankruptcy filing and that's not even the only chain of dominoes that's been set off here. Malls are one. Of the biggest sources of tax revenue for a lot of towns. So in sales dry up, potentially the community is impacted because now a mall is in generating nearly as much sales tax revenue as it used to produce. That's Dan Sheridan at the Hoffman Strategy Group. When a town gets less tax revenue, it might not be able to hire as many people or clean. The streets is often Joe Minarik the Conference Board says a stimulus package could help. We expect that some form of stimulus support can keep some of these dominoes from falling. For instance, if the federal government allocates more funds for small business loans that could prop up stores and restaurants helping them pay rent until the pandemic has over a stimulus plan would also give consumers more money to spend but that might not actually help malls. A lot of people are staying home because they don't feel safe if you give them cash, that is not necessarily gonNA, send them out to the mall. Again, another reminder the virus is in control of the economy.

Inside the BLAST Restructure

"Blasts saying corona has hit our bank account a little bit. We gotTA restructure this if we want to really make it beneficial for the long haul. So what they're doing is moving forward, they will be increasing the participation fees paid two teams and reducing the prize money again. The I feel like this was kind of lost in the tweet because their initial tweet didn't really explain very well, the total sum paid by blast will remain identical. Okay. So I think that's important at the end of the day to realize that however the kicker here. Is the players aren't necessarily seeing that payout for participation. They see a lot of times in their contracts, the prize money. So you're taking away prize money to give it to direct payout to the ORG which you're like okay. Well, what's the big deal? It's all going to the same place not necessarily because pending on your contract pending on the Org again they only give you your pay right they give you what you agreed for on a payment and the prize money. So the double whammy here is that they failed to consult the counter. Strike Professional Players Association the CS. On this manner question for you why do they have to do that? That's a very good question which I'm glad you brought it up because I always every time this comes up in the world of counterstrike with. Like the CS PPA. Up We were not consulted about this we will be speaking with them behind closed doors blah blah, blah no one here heard about this at what point do they? Do you think they call an emergency meeting and say guys do people even know were around? Like do they like and I've said this before I feel like they have lost their own way whereas before it came out, it was, hey, we wanna look out what's best for the players while also working with tournament organizers and or gigs. To figure out what's best for like the system right now while then it's kind of turned into well, no, we feel like it should just be this way and we're going to create our own rankings because we don't like the way they do it You know things like that. I? Guess. You know perfect player union world. Yes. You would consult the players if you're going to change the payout. However if they didn't need you to start it, why would they consult you to change it? I'm probably GONNA take like a approach on this that if any players listening, I apologize ahead of time but like in a way what Henry g did by releasing the salary information I, say Henry Cloud Nine as the cloud nine decision right team decision to release salary? Information. Like you're not gonNA get a ton of sympathy from me at least when it comes to a little bit more money going into the owners pockets because what I see like again, this is one hundred percent my point of view I. don't even know if you agree with this what? I what I see in counterstrike right now is a game that is getting to this Odd Breaking Point doesn't mean the game's going to go away or die or nothing like that. I'm just saying it's at a point where. There's just this top end were just really top heavy in the fall off to me is is fairly massive when it comes to the landscape or the overall ecosystem of counterstrike, we're not seeing a ton of new teams invest into counterstrike. We've talked to team owners that have said it's a bad investment other than getting your name out there like if you're willing if you're willing to put in the money to be one of the top five. Great, it's good recognition by kind of beyond that. We see several team owners taking cheaper. Pats just to stay. Around in counter strike, but not necessarily the compete at the highest level because they know. To do that, it's millions of dollars in now we see a contract for the first time right now I know that includes Alex is a buyout but let's just say he's he's making around three four hundred K. annually off of this contract. Plus a buy out fee and then he's getting prize money from the six hundred events that go on throughout the year. Right? It's not like blast has. One. Event there multiple events in including one pretty much. Every weekend at this point, right weather's blast or star ladder ESL or face it. There's an event. Every single weekend at this point players are making really good money. Now I know there's a saying like, well, it's never enough right like you should be able to get whatever you're able to will. This was an opportunity for the elders in blast toward together in make making a little bit more beneficial for the ORG is. A huge problem in that. If they didn't consult with them. It's because they chose not to you know they didn't WanNa do it like we know you guys are making a ton of money. We need ours. Also a blast is still paying out the same amount, but I do feel for ownership groups right now in counterstrike because it is so outrageously expensive ended it's taken away from us a little bit in my mind because of how inflated the cost of Gone We've seen. Teams completely just wipe themselves out of counterstrike together we saw cloud nine one of the biggest stories take two year hiatus essentially from the game because they didn't want to compete at a high level. That's what it came down to. Right. They have the money the one of the most valuable orange but chose not to spend. Yeah. In put all their resources into counterstrike instead don't have two dollar and team cloud nine the just enough to stay relevant. That's it. They did the again that we've seen several teams do let's keep our name in the game refloating around right. If his top thirty we'RE STILL ON HDTV, we're still going to be in a handful of events 'cause re cloud nine a but at the end of the day, they didn't see it worthwhile to invest in the counter strike again, they're coming back now but that's after they have two dollar and teams in they're probably saying good success in other areas. Yeah. Ah Let. Me Tell you where I have a problem with because ultimately I think I leaned closer to you. My problem is not that they didn't consult with the Players Association. 'cause consulting means a conversation. Right? My problem is if there was no heads up given because it's not like this is in the off season of blast there in the middle of the event, right? They are still in the tournament mode four like the main blast that will eventually lead to like their big major, right For blast. That's where I have the issue because if you're if you're changing the prize pool mid tournament and not giving them a heads up I. Understand the reason. Obviously. We don't know all the numbers, but all we constantly hear about. How you know the tournament organizers make barely any money and the owners encounter strike especially, pretty much lose money. Right. Having a counter strike team. And yet. Always see from these players are Gucci watches you know Yeezy. Right like they're doing pretty okay. Not Every player I understand that. But for the most part, they're doing pretty okay with their salaries. Heard. From counterstrike pros saying that they won't go to events unless they're staying five star hotels for the most part like the best of the best tower tournament organizers where the. Name anything here but there's a place will say locally where I'm not even kidding you next door, there is a walkway, a covered walkway that leads from the hotel to the place where they were having the event and the players didn't want to stay at the hotel because it wasn't nice enough and this hotel is a Sheridan. It wasn't like a king to know knock on. Lucina. It's a shared. Sakes. Like. Four Star Hotel Four Seasons or anything but. Still pretty good and they wouldn't do it. So then the tournament organizers had to switch the hotel, right? The players went there and said, nope, this isn't up to our standards then switched the hotels and everything here like don't get it twisted. And it's actress counterstrike I'd say most East sports athletes. For being guys that like have very minimum requirements to get by in life like I've seen your room behind your Webcam right we know how some of these guys live they have very high standards when it comes to like pampering them. So No, I think for blast to take a conscious stand and be like we can't survive doing this. Let me ask the players this would you rather have more prize money? Or. Would you rather have? Would you rather have more prize money and blast fold after this because they can't afford To recoup or would you rather have? A reputable event. In blast payout a little less give your or more money to hopefully that will come back to you in some way and then being able to continue because right now that's the only option you have chances are that money is not going back to them in some way though right like. Chances are the orange will pocket money or use it for their expenses that even if? Up The fridge some you out. You know we upgrade the stream room for you guys our facilitation.

The Series S may be a cheaper less powerful next-gen Xbox and Injustice 3 may be in development

"A different next Gen xbox called the xbox series s has potentially been confirmed. Thanks to labelling on a controller. Microsoft has been teasing the existence of multiple next Gen X. boxes basically since the very first time they teased plans for next. Gen. Xbox they pointedly used the term consoles Klerl the first time they even mentioned Nexgen, and then when the xbox series x was officially announced, it was called the series x, which obviously implies that it is one of many but. Those teases there hasn't been much official word on what additional buying options will be available for the next generation of xbox but. Recently, we learned about something called the xbox series s from an unlikely source, the fine print on the packaging of an xbox one controller. Tom Warren reported on the xbox says asked for the verge and wrote the verge has obtained photos of Microsoft's new next Gen xbox controller in white complete with packaging that mentions the xbox series S. Twitter User Zach S was able to purchase the controller today and we've confirmed it is genuine. The new controller was sold on a resale site today, and the side of the packaging notes that the controller works with both xbox series x and xbox series s consoles Microsoft has not officially unveiled an xbox series s yet nor has the company even confirmed a white xbox series x controller a mysterious white xbox series x controller also appeared online last month complete with the new D pad texture triggers and new share button. This new league matches the previous. Controller League and retail packaging suggests that these could be appearing in stores. Soon, the XBOX series s will likely be Microsoft's second cheaper next Gen. xbox that's been code-named Lockhart a Microsoft document leaked back in. June. Shed some further light on the company's plans for to next Gen consoles. Microsoft's xbox series x Deaf Kit. code-named Dante allows game developers to enable a special lockhart mode that has a profile of the performance that Microsoft wants to hit with this second console. Then story is linked in the show notes. The rumors related to Lockhart which I think we are safe to rename the xbox series s at this point is that it is not as powerful as the xbox series x so it's probably going to be cheaper and it will probably focus on streaming using exe cloud. That's my assumption. Anyway I guess console manufacturers are now renewed value in multiple consoles skews working at game stop during the playstation three and xbox three sixty era I feel like people are generally just confused about the different buying options when it came to those consoles so. Then the playstation four and xbox one at launch. Basically each had one skew I. AM curious to see how people will react to the different playstation fives and different xbox series. Maybe, it won't confuse consumers at all especially since most purchasing as don online these days and it's just easier to do research in general or maybe it will create confusion again I don't know I. Guess we will find out at some point later this year you know it would really be nice to start saying an actual date soon I hope we learn about that. Injustice three may be on the way according to artist boss logic. This is firmly a rumor and far from a confirmation but artist boss logic who works in video games a lot. An recently did a live drawing the assassin's creed Valhalla cover art as a means of officially announcing the game for Yourself Sheridan image that just had the word injustice three stylized where the e at the end of justice is the number three and the dot on the second I was stylized to be Dr Manhattan symbol from watchmen, and it is all placed in front of a clock implying the potential game could feature watchmen characters. There's even the familiar watchmen smiley face floating around in the clock parts. Boss logic tagged Ed Boon in the tweet who is credited as the director of injustice to and is perhaps better known as one of the CO creators of mortal combat. It's really not clear what this is. Boss logic could have just mocked something up for fun as injustice fan he could just be sharing found image online and tagging ed boom to see what kind of reaction it creates or it could be totally legitimate. And tore you know maybe boss logic forgot how email works and. tweeted his to Ed Boon instead of sending it to him directly. It feels a little early to be talking about injustice three especially considering more combat eleven just came out last year and it's big DLC. Expansion was pretty recent to just a few months ago developer Nether Realm is a big team though capable of working on multiple projects at once. So it's not outside the realm of possibility that they would be ready to announce a new injustice game soon. It could be fully announced at the upcoming. DC. Fan Dome Event with maybe a plant twenty, twenty, one release that that would make sense.

The Best Type of Content to Create During Rocky Times

"I'm Eric Su and Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the best type of content to create during rocky time so again we're in the thick of it right now in this cove in nineteen. We hope everyone staying safe. So you know what we'll go ahead and jump into this right now because typically what you would do when you're creating content letters blog content video content. You're on a normal cadence you know. You're talking about the newest at least for us. Neil nine on this podcast new tools new marketing tactics all this stuff right but you know in times like this happen you have to kind of adjust a messaging that you have and think about truly marketing is is thinking about what are people's desires during this time and a lot of people they safety right a lot of people they want to be able to save their business and want to be able to keep the lights on. So you have to think about how you might adjust your content strategy and I think one of the smartest things that you can do is if you're lucky enough to have really let's say you have a product and you have special data profit while for example or even this. I'm looking at this website. Right here is go. Dot Within Dot Co and the euro the sub folders retail dash pulse. We can search for that and this agency right here. They spend about five hundred million. They manage five hundred dollars in ad spin. And you can see. Let's showing the different categories like ecommerce getting crushed right now. You know fresh is not doing that. Well and I think just having data and presenting a very simple way for people to look at their signs that is something that is genuinely helpful while not trying to prey on other people kneel. You can also use any cure research tool and type in you know industries that you're considering going after you'll start seeing trends over the last twelve months and that'll include some of the past few months during the krona virus as well and that'll give you ideas of what's growing popular and what's decreasing. You can do the same with Google trends as well. And when you do this you'll get feedback on what's growing on a day by day basis. Could Google trends can do hourly or daily weekly monthly? Whatever you want and then on Google trends you can also see what's trending on. What's hot right now? These will all give you ideas of the type of content. That's working the other thing that I want you to do is go into your Google analytics and look at. What's been the most popular over the last thirty days and compare that to the previous thirty days. That will also give you some ideas of what's working right now versus what was working before. Yeah and I think a couple other tools that you can use. You can definitely use twitter search feature. It's I often find. The trends are really helpful. I've actually been using twitter quite a bit more than the other social networks actually back. I should delete off my phone but I get a lot of my news from twitter and h refs is good because they have a content explorer section. And you can see kind of what's trending very similar to that but sumo actually keeps up with the trends is also combining these together. You're going to be able to you know be equipped to well be in the know in terms of other types of content great and Neil to my my first point. You actually did something on your blog. Posts around Corona virus correct. I do something around current a virus. This is when it happened really early to let people know not to freak out about the traffic and I broke down. What industries were decreasing in increasing in? How much buys Walsum conversion data? Funny enough it was probably one of my most popular posts in the last twelve months. Didn't have any intention of that. The Post in generate any revenue of course because there was nothing to really pitching there but more so to keep people at ease. Because they're like oh my traffic's diet. Google extra factors. 'cause it's something that most of us have never been through technically probably all of us haven't been through and yet it did really well but the problem with those data rich post is it's really hard to create them. Not everyone will another option for you. If you see other people creating these data rich posts you can use tools like Info Graham in Cambe and turn it into info-graphic cite them as your source put on your website. Head of all the people that linked to original source in Sheridan and ask them to share content linked to it. And you'll find that you'll do quite well doing that as well. Yeah I mean you know coming back to to earlier like don't talk about mindset that much but if you think about people psychology right now think about maslow's hierarchy people want to survive right now. That's the most important thing so you know when people are worrying about marketing. They're probably working in advertising or they rely a ton on advertising or Seo right so they wanNA bring about how the protect their business because that ties in with their livelihood and that ties in with their employees livelihood. Now you know for the survival blog that I have more. We're looking at the traffic when we look at some of the things that we have been creating content wise. It's basically what everyone's looking for. They want tactics on survival. They're looking for specific equipment. They want reviews as well so because of that not seeing anybody is trying to take advantage but knowing what people are looking for right now a creating it at the right time. That's all you thrive in terms of your content creation. And then during this time you don't want to write content too much in advance and schedule it out because things are changing so drastically you ought to be able to play by the day and what. I mean by. That is if you're one who likes planning that's fine but be willing to change around which content you publish each day depending on what you think may do well during that time and if you don't schedule too much in advance you know look a few days beforehand and right on what's working there has yes. There's still volatility but not as much as there was during the early days of the corona virus will. I don't know about you but I basically stopped posting as much to instagram. Because it's like you kind of have to be aware of the stuff that you're posting. Make sure it's not tone deaf so I don't know about you. Yeah being more careful on what I post because I don't want to be too aggressive not necessarily even The things that aren't related to corona virus. But still. I just want to be sensitive enough post anything that could potentially offend anyone even though it's about marketing or whatnot

In Indianapolis, Second Thoughts About Electronic Ankle Bracelets

"Are estimated to be wearing a look tronic ankle bracelets right now cities across the country are choosing to put bracelets on people rather than put people in jail now Indianapolis has the nation's largest electronic monitoring program but as Jill Sheridan of member station WFYI reports some in the criminal justice field are having second thoughts about the practice in the past five years Indianapolis's Marion County steadily increased the number of people monitored electronically either on pre trial or as part of the sentence Marion County community corrections director Tyler Bowman says the last time they ran the numbers we were clearly the largest municipal user of electronic monitoring of any agencies we could find an estimated four thousand three hundred people are monitored daily compared to two thousand seven hundred people in all of Chicago's cook county Bowman says the system does more than ease jail overcrowding he says when people are out of jail they can work stay close to families receive addiction treatment and maybe turn their lives around he sees electronic monitoring as another tool that helps us raise accountability level for our clients and provide some structure for our clients so that we can work with them to raise their readiness to change level and then address those criminal genic needs the psychosocial needs but as the number of people wearing monitors increases so do concerts fraternal order of police president Rick Snyder says the practice can place violent criminals back on the streets he says the program is being violated about one hundred times a month as those wearing the devices cut them off often times we can't begin even physically looking for them for at least usually forty eight hours you can commit a lot of axe bad axe in two days the county admits they don't have exact data on how many people cut off their monitors in Illinois last year similar concerns about lack of data led to a new law requiring yearly reviews of who is put on electronic monitoring and why and well most aren't cutting off bracelets many say the system isn't helping people turn their lives around Caroline Vance a social worker with the Marion County public defender's office says people assigned to wear the ankle bracelets also have to pay for them corrections charges a fifty dollar fee to get the device and the daily fee topping out at fourteen dollars for our clients are living at or below the poverty line that is a significant amount of money out of their budget every single month that could be used for other things more cities are partnering with private companies to outsource monitoring programs and for those companies community corrections is a growing revenue source Matthew D. Michelle who studies the trend for nonprofit research group says this is a problem what we're saying is that we're going to allow vendors to take over this interest they can make money off of them but they don't have to document anything that's in a where the rat or what happens to them none of that D. micelles concerned about a lack of accountability and joins others calling for more study before expanding monitoring but for those who wear the bracelets it's often better than the alternative our son bond is facing burglary charges he wears an ankle bracelet on pre trial I've sat in the sale and not been able to work I've been able to see my family certainly I wish that I didn't have this thing on my ankle I feel a little bit like a a tag Cajun but it could always be worse for those in the criminal justice system it may be jail time but there are still many questions about electronic monitoring does what it purports to and if it is good public policy for NPR news I'm Jill

Gini Dietrich talks PESO and Spin Sucks

"Good Morning Welcome to marketing over coffee. I'm John Wall Today. We're GONNA be talking about PR marketing measuring everything. The peso model and the person behind peso is ginny dietrich. She's the founder and CEO of Spin Sucks and hosted. The sprint sucks podcast. She's run grown an agency over the past fourteen years and also co author of marketing in the Round Ginny. Dietrich thanks for joining us today. I wish people could see you because your hands are like I do. Oh that's a whole new thing to we're doing squad. Cast is a new tool that I've tried and we were on caster forever and then caster is like good most of the time. The thing squad cat has been a little bit better like the sounds a little bit better. But it's also been wonky. I'd had one or two fail so the backup recorder the bet. Yes we live and die by the backup and people are like to teach the batteries on the yes. We need to change the batteries. Let's start though for people who don't know you. I. It's funny too. I was thinking I was like. Why hasn't she been on so much earlier? Funny you're like. Would you like to be gassed? And it was like cheese John. I thought you'd never ask. I mean it's only been like fifteen years Bamut it's been for at least came up with the reason. I figured out what the deal was. So much of what you do is groundbreaking and cutting edge stuff in measurement and stats and we have a guy who's I will tell the story really quickly. I was on a conference call yesterday with web in. Its but they told me that they are data scientists like Oh really. We'll tell me more. I started to ask questions so then I said we'll do you know Christopher Penn and they're like no no who that is. I'll just you that we're done. We're out here. No data scientists. Y'All know Christopher pen was going with that we gotta get back on measurement arm. Okay so tell us about what you do for sprint. Sucks though you have a picture. What's your what's your your pitch. Oh okay so it's been sucks. You know it started as a blog in two thousand six in. It was a complete and utter disaster. And Truth be told. I have zero idea why we kept going because for the first three years it was a whole but I think there wasn't anything to compare it to an so we just kept going and it literally took three years before we started to go. Well I get how this digital marketing thing works in how blogging fits into it and so from there. It became a book. I did a ton of speaking in marketing. The book traveling the world and Blah Blah Blah Blah. And then. I had a small one and decided I needed to stay home at not needed to wanted to. So we looked at how we could take the things that we teach at a theoretical level on spin sucks and dignity into a practical level and do that professional development so today we had this been six academy which does online courses coaching. And so you you've been able to transition from agency running this for everybody to giving people the you know the teaching a man how to fish kind of thing. Yeah A. N. we've really gone from the agency. Side Does B. Two B. Manufacturing communication since we've gone from that and we still do that but more into teaching communicators that just the theory that the practice. Okay and then the cornerstone of this. Well I say it's the cornerstone but you could tell me otherwise there but peso the whole idea behind being the measure. What's going on and kind of your pr? And you're all the way across all your digital marketing tells more about that based on model is this is sort of like the blog like it just came out of something and became something that. I didn't anticipate it was the process that we used internally at the agency and we were using paid earned. Sheridan owned media. But we were calling it that we were certainly doing content in social end some search engine marketing and of course media relations reputation in thought leadership and all that kind of stuff and we had a process but we named it and so when. I wrote the book. The publisher said to me He. Can you put a name to this and create a diagram so we sat in a conference room when we just started putting things up on the whiteboard to see what we could come up with and we went back and forth because we we believe that you should start with content with owned media and go to earned or shared and then paid and so you know but that acronym work all ESPN OS EP? It just didn't work and finally were like wait a works so one of the arguments get from communicators as we never start with paid media and I agree. We don't so you don't have to start paid media because of the acronym is in that order but what that's what we did so I named the peso model at that time the ACO model existed. You know people were talking about insured on but they hadn't added that the pay pieces especially in our industry and then I had a designer design a graphic and it just went. I mean took off if I had realized that it was going to do that. I would've put some more strategic into it but I didn't I mean it was literally because my publisher said. Can you put a name to this? End Critic right right and bundled up. That's the thing that everybody misses. I mean is that it's so easy to create these models and and do all this analysis but if you can't bundle it up into something easy to remember you know it's your. It's it's only going to be adopted by the people that exercise and eat right. They're the only ones that have the discipline to like. Dig It all this whereas you can throw peso at anybody and they now. Suddenly you've unlocked their world for them. Yeah and the end. They use it as a planning tool. They use it as a measurement tool they use it. You know it presentations. They use it with clients to say. Hey listen we can use this model to demonstrate results and it's it has changed the world for PR industry for Short

Australia's Next Danger: Mudslides

Australia's Next Danger: Mudslides

"Australia you just got back. Yep still jet lagged and so are the fires still burning or are they out there mostly out mostly moved beyond that? It's been raining a ton for the last few weeks but that means we've moved into a new dangerous zone after it's been raining there are mudslides that started off good and then got bad. Yeah that happens when I talk so yeah unfortunately the types of fires that we're seeing in Australia recently. The meek mudslides way more likely when it rains which it's been doing and that's because large intense fires burn through hilly areas and then most of the trees are charred the underbrush like although smaller plants. They're gone right in the soil in those areas changes to it kind of dries out. The top layer can basically become ash exactly and so when it rains. The soil can't soak up the water as well. The water starts to run off and then mudslide okay in that basically happens without warning. I mean for a long time. The answer was yes no warning but scientists are trying to turn that yes into a no and we hung out with some of those scientists in Australia while we were there. It's pretty amazing what they've accomplished so far so today in the show the damage after the fire how scientists in Australia are using satellites and helicopters to try and predict dangerous mudslides. Okay becky you brought a friend with you today yes. I did the one and only Meredith Rizzo. Npr photographer extraordinary Hazo. Hey I'm very excited to see you in this year studio. But what are you doing here so like Becky said I'm a photographer? I work with images and recently the two of US reporting in Australia together where we met these scientists. A lot of what they're doing has to do with imaging like what the landscape and the soil look like up close and from helicopters and even from space. So you're here for your visual Expertise most definitely. Yes okay I am employed to look at things yes okay so when I think soil scientists the first things I think are not helicopters or space. I think of people with little shovels walking around scooping up dirt. Maybe looking at them under a microscope. Yeah I mean that's what we thought to going into it but that is not how this soil science actually works. Its way more sexy. Okay Meredith. I don't know what kind of show that you think. This is but please be appropriate. Okay all right so dirt nerds using satellite images to study pictures of mud. I love this thought you would you would but actually some of what makes it. Sexy comes from what makes it challenging. This science is hard because you're dealing with huge areas like you have to go up in space or up into helicopters to see the scale of these fires right like since last fall. Almost eight million hectares of forest have burned. Okay probably Hector's in a unit that you're that familiar with that's an area almost the size of South Carolina. Oh yeah wow okay so really really big and a lot of that has been on the southeastern coast which is near some really big population centers as you've heard of Sydney Canberra the capital and there are lots and lots and lots of small towns in the hills outside those cities. The fires burn through a lot of the forest. That's right around those towns so basically they have a lot of land to cover exactly and a lot of people in potential danger from these mudslides. That could happen every major fire that burned near where people live needs to be investigated to figure out where the mudslides are most likely to happen and there. Aren't that many scientists that do this work in Australia. So the ones that do have the expertise of basically been working continuously for months. Because there's just so much land to be studied so normally one hundred thousand Hick -Tay would be a very very large fought But in the context of this year. It's actually probably going to be the smallest of the flaws that were deployed to Charlie showers. He's in like an incident command center. Here everyone in the background bustling around. He's a groundwater geologist so he works for the Department of Environment Land Water and planning for the Australian state of Victoria. It's basically like a state level. Epa Kennedy And the fire. He was working on when we visited him had burned through as he said about one hundred thousand hectares. So it's three hundred fifty square miles in this national park. It has really steep mountains so the fire had just gone out like a day or two before he visited and then it rained a ton actually as we were driving and it was pouring rain so mudslides might already be happening there and he was trying to find them to the moon. Yeah so this is where the images really come in handy. Charlie has a lot of information available to him about what's happening on all those acres of land. He has satellite images of the fires. He showed us these maps. They update every day. So this is a lot hot spots. He insulates the little orange dots showing areas of active fire. In addition to active fires. The satellites can look at burned areas. Too So Charlie can see where the fire damage is most severe Basically where the tree cover is missing the most which is helpful because the more intense the fire the more unstable the soil and the unstable soil is more likely to become a mudslide. Yeah exactly but the satellites aren't perfect so there's a woman on his team named Astray Malaria Blanca. Whose job it is to circle all the areas where there's not good satellite imagery like. Maybe there was a cloud in the way or even smoke to the pelagic. Okay so how do they get around now? Well she can send someone in a helicopter to go. Look at those places and see how badly burned. This is more helicopters than I was expecting for this soil science episode. I was expecting no helicopters but this is this is more. These scientists are going up almost every day after fires over and looking at trees looking at the soil Taking lots of photos and they're looking for evidence of mudslides because if there are small mudslides happening up in the woods. Then that tells you that yes the soils unstable here and other areas that are closer to people's houses or next to roads might also be stable yet. And this is where Charlie and Australia and our whole team are relying on the work of academic scientists both in the US and Australia together. They've all made a lot of progress on two big questions ready. Yep One which hillsides are most at risk for these mudslides which scientists refer to as debris flows? Okay that's the technical term and second. How much rain is necessary to trigger? These debris flows right because presumably like a light. Drizzle isn't gonNA unleash one exactly a lot of rain in a short period of time is what's dangerous so they're looking at a lot of fire. Data a lot of rain data and looking for patterns about where these debris flows happen the more data they have the more. The patterns emerge okay so the found these patterns. What do you do next? You build a computer model. What else. Yeah Twenty Twenty One. That shows the risk of a debris flow happening in each individual place so we visited one of the labs. That's building one of these models. It's Gary Shirts lab at the University of Melbourne. This Guy Gary Sheridan is really jazzed. Because they've been working on this model since two thousand three and they've just rolled out a new version of it which shows which areas are at the highest risk for debris flow. And you can actually see the risk when you look at the maps. They've made so. For example. You know saying it rains like six inches in two hours in an area that burned very severely two months ago and the slope of the Hill. Is this how likely is that Debris flow will happen. If the risk is high there will be a little red dot net area. If it's medium there might be an orange dot okay. So in general how common are these debris flows like. Are they happening all the time after fires or does it take a really rare or powerful rainstorm to trigger them yet? Gary Sheridan actually put it really simply people who talk about freak mud flows and Franklin sides off to the fire and was always this idea that these things were extraordinary events but as we found and you guys in the US found to the kind of rainfall triggers them off although it's intense and very short it's actually quite a common rainfall event and if the rain is that common then the debris flows themselves are also pretty common although not necessarily huge debris flows can be lots of little mutt sites. That are triggered. So how does all this come together to help? Protect people like are the scientists who are out looking at the areas that burn this year able to use this information to warn people in a specific area. Yes and no. The model still isn't quite good enough for like local officials like your local fire chief to just log on and make decisions based on what they see like. There are a bunch of red dots on the map. I'm going to close this road. That runs up this hell. It's not good enough to make that content decision but the model that Sheridan seem built is helping with kind of broader decision making like if a debris flow is really likely to happen in a given watershed for example the towns that rely on the streams and that watershed might switch to pumping groundwater for drinking water. Because the river's are likely to get pretty money right. And if you're seeing a lot of debris flows or if firefighters in an area that has burned are trying to get to places that are still on fire. Yeah they can use this model to decide which areas are safer than others and that's important because at least one firefighter in Australia has died in a debris flow. So it's a big deal. Okay Becky Hersher and Meredith. Rizzo I appreciate you both. Thank you shit you.
