John got into belt price. So that meant for a while. We didn't see much of him clearly. We wanted to study sara bellum at done a little work on it. Before and the colleague kosovo sasaki the physiology of the survey was basically born at that time. I better the brain the understanding so tallahassee as far as connectivity and as far as the physiology which one of the main element and is still in fact one of the few parts of the brain that lincoln say understands well from an electric pursue logical point of view physically doing the experiments and mean. The equipment was pretty antiquated. Wasn't it no no not at all. It was wonderful. Camera had really superb equipment. It was all made in house by chat coons. It was very low-noise me by today's fantasy was absolutely scientists le'veon but at that time it was fantastic and this was one of the great labs in the world at that time so you could actually come into the brain and look at different types of cells and determined appropriate were and what could activities where with other cells and whether they're excited story or inhibit tree and so on then. We basically came up with nine papers in two years. The basis for physiologists bellum so it was unbelievable. The one thing. I haven't been able to understand in talking to various scientists around camera about those times. Some of them say. Oh yes you know that amazing fantastic work that was done on the early discoveries of the cerebellar them of course it was all jack. Eccles work and a couple of his researchers were also named. But then i speak to others and they say no in fact it was you who did most of that work at time. Many of the papers were organized in other political order. And of course you know it could be. I know the truth. The matters would probably at some point one would be in fact. I was pretty peeved. As i think was sa- faqih that we published papers and some of them in journals where author vertical order was not necessary. Jack decide that he was going to be the first author and yes peeved of course was with a lot of the experiments in his absence and many of these things that were done really worked out by myself. It was his lab. He wrote the papers and well student. And that's the way things are professor. Rodolfo lena's is now chairman of the new york university.

We have wonderful celebration in the lab and we presented him with a candlestick but it was just a time to celebrate not only him and his achievement but really the achievement of the whole but a lot of the work had been done in collaboration. It wasn't human him malone after some ten years of intracellular recording in the spinal cord. I was happy to move into the much more complex and challenging problems presented by high levels of the nervous system. The decisive change occurred with studies on neurons of the brain stem. Under the leadership of peer anderson pair anderson started working with echoes on the hippocampus. That part of the brain concerned with memory forty five years later. He's still working on it. Pair anderson is now emeritus professor of physiology at the university of oslo started usually around eight o'clock in the morning over excellent technicians. They had done prepared. The animals shave them. Gave them pre medication and this decides them and then we did search direct be prepared a set of nerves. We got into part of the four limb and then found a set of nurse. I'm going to some going to skin and we cut those sent arranged them so that these could be mounted on stimulation electrodes so we could send signals from these nerds into the brain then. We followed up by opening the skull. The part of the brain in which we would be interested and sucked away the coveting. Lay yourself the brain because in the one to two we were particularly interested in where the set of which other deep and the other is the hippocampus which also is a deep-seated parts on rain for the bulk of the day was in fact reputation and when everything was set up with start then to record signals by putting thin electrodes into the brain and recording the activity of cells driven by the artificial stimulus. We sent into the different nerves. In this way. We could listen if you like to the brain how it behaved if we stimulated and they're coming from say the joel or from the shoulder area or from the belly. Sometimes we made leeson's in part of the brain to see whether the signal was then blocked. They often we injected from logical agents to test whether the synopsis we which has team question where affected by specific drugs and in fact from the work. That's john did. Many of our fundamental knowledge about synapses where found so that that created a set of drugs which are used still in medicine today in the thirteen years john was at the end new seventy four researchers from twenty countries worked in his department of these.

"To my beloved england. It was a fateful choice. John and irene arrived in sydney in nineteen thirty seven with four children in tow. They bought a large house on the outskirts of sydney the lower north shore with harbor views and tennis court while john settled into his new job irene became intrinsically involved with a religious organization for young women the grail movement. Both john and irene were active members of the catholic church. Sydney was of course a lovely place to live. But the academic isolation was sa- via the sydney university. Medical school was a very doom place being little more than a teaching institution unbelievably. It was completely locked up by god's at five pm even the professors had too scary out to avoid imprisonment. For the night. I decided to study the electrophysiology of neuromuscular transmission in muscles of the cat. Hind limb because i thought that it could lead to results of clinical interest in nineteen forty. One word came through that jack eccles being elected to a fellowship of the royal society impressive but obviously not impressive enough. The security of our academic life lasted until japan into the war. Then for to us. I was deeply involved in various wartime projects and the kanametsu became the australian santa fe blood serum preparation and for applied research on acoustic problems with oldest scientific and war oriented activity. I thought my position was secure. However under new management sydney hospital proceeded to make my position on tenable so the next stage of my odyssey was to cross the tasman sea at the end of nineteen forty three to accept an appointment as professor of physiology at any medical school in new zealand. The closest university to the south pole the one nineteen forty four was important in my scientific life above all my post cheering years because my intimate association with kyle papa dates from that time many people including myself had a scientific lives changed by the inspiring new vision of science. That papa gave us many many years later at a public meeting in holland. Sa- john eccles and sakala. Papa philosopher extraordinaire spoke of these early days and of eccles conversion so jackals i had grown up in oxford with and had accepted the ordinary philosophy of science there namely that you do experiments you publish the results you go on and do some more and you have a good mainstream of investigation and that as a good scientists. You should not be wrong. So i had gone on as a young man fighting for view of transmission between another fiber and a nerve cell the sign apps or the nerve muscle junction. Believing without is that this was electrical. Essentially the impulse lansdowne. The fibers of the nerve jumps across with electric action across the gap dial and levy for example had put up for simpler and slowest thing. The idea that it was a chemical action. I accepted this chemical thing for slower actions but not something as fast as when a nerve impulse runs down. A muscle tibert contract. It takes only half a of the second to get across the gap. I thought that it couldn't be done with finesse and speed by chemistry well admitted the chemical saying dial got the nobel prize and thirty six and i still fought against it. I had still believed that it was an electrical bat. I was getting more and more concerned. That i may have made a terrible era and that i was as scientists this of course you suffer for very much that you have as it were gone wrong and being almost you might say a failure in science. Then i met a cow. He was in cash check and he came down and gave a cost of lecture about falsify ability and he inspired me enormously because then i realized there are two essential things in in science one is to have imagination today to adventure to go with ideas. Beyond what you now and then to test those ideas and the most rigorous way you put up your brainchild and you're trying to shoot it down and in that way you advance and testily and science. He inspired me with so. I immediately converted my rather vaguely formulated electrical theory into and published it in quite precise manner and developed another electrical theory for innovation and that was published and there it was now there was something to refute and i myself some years late in one thousand nine hundred fifty one these clear expressions of what would happen on them then electrical study which shot down by our own observations in one night in done eating meat into and see that about in nineteen fifty one. I met in oxford bad noon. Scientists and shit to him. That i was a fan of echoes. And he said eckerd's men but you know the men must be crazy refute..

"Was both real and required an urgent response like his conservative predecessor. Tony Blair too was eager to present the case and achieve progress on the international response for him. It was only heads of state with their responsibility for Environment Transport Energy and Economic Policy. That could take the truly consequential national and international decisions required to reduce emissions at scale. Although John had been retired he and I spoke and I drew his advice frequently. More than one of the world's most highly regarded climate scientists.

"We begin with Nick Rowley. Who's also saddened by the death of a great public servant and friend who died in April so John Houten who pioneered the understanding of climate science and led the IPCC. Nick rarely was former advisor to the British prime minister. Tony Blair. He may not be as well known as David Attenborough. Greta Tourne or Tim Flannery but his contribution both our understanding of the climate system and helping establish the institutions and decisions required to reduce the risk of human induced. Climate change is beyond compare and unassuming deeply religious and humble man. Jones was a trudy glittering Korea winning a scholarship to Oxford at the tender age of Sixteen Joan went on to become professor of atmospheric physics there through the nineteen sixties and Seventies. He built up a powerful research group at the university. Developing new techniques for remote sensing the atmosphere's temperature structure and composition. This groundbreaking work gained the attention of NASA with his team. Developing the instruments to establish space-based weather monitoring flown on the Nimbus satellites in the nineteen seventies. This work enabled detailed studies of the structure and dynamics of the ozone layer and ability to measure and model the radiative transfer of the earth and understanding of the dynamics of the stratosphere eighty-three that John Really came into his element as head of the UK metrological office. He developed his strong interest in climate science. During this time Joan was part of a small group including the diplomats crispin to kill and the scientists and environmental writer. James Lovelock who held a series of briefings within Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on the risk posed. By what was then called the greenhouse effect in September nineteen thousand nine hundred fetch gave the first speech by any head of state on climate change informed by meetings involving John Her Royal Society speech at Fishmongers Hall in London I set out the importance of basic science informing policy and then turn to the threat posed by climate change and what she called and unwittingly massive experiment with the system of this planet itself in April nineteen thousand nine. The Prime Minister then held a daylong seminar on the subject with a full cabinet. A Downing Street. Unlike so many of today's political class having studied Chemistry University Margaret Thatcher was a leader at ease with signs who thrived on understanding arguments and the facts on December eighth nineteen thousand nine came as seminal speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York years before vicious climate events such as the European heat wave of two thousand and three or Hurricane Katrina hitting New Orleans in two thousand and five. This was a fantastic speech. There is no better example of the political foresight and leadership required to respond to what scientific expertise revealed and her placing the issue squarely on. The international agenda was Abeille supported by John. Thatcher was convinced that the global warming hypothesis was clear and Britain had a responsibility to lead open by Thatcher in May nineteen ninety. John became the first director of the Headley Center for climate prediction and research. Soon as the world center of scientific excellence in the collation and interpretation of global atmospheric data by this time he was also a key member of the newly established intergovernmental panel on Climate Change. Joan was chair or co chair of the IPC scientific assessment working group until two thousand and two and the lead editor of the first three IPC reports. There is always another major report to read on climate change but I would encourage anyone with an interest to go back and read the executive summary of that first assessment report released in Nineteen Ninety. Thirty years have now passed. Sadly measurements revealed that over those thirty years. The atmosphere has been warming at a rate between the higher and middle predictions. And if the world doesn't redouble efforts to reduce emissions at scale we measure take tree to around four degrees of warming by the end of the century a truly dystopia prospect in two thousand seven on behalf of the panel except to the Nobel Peace Prize that was shared by the IPC and former US Vice President Al Gore just prior to this for two years. I was fortunate to work at Downing Street. Advising tiny Bleh on sustainability and climate change. This was before Hurricane Katrina before Al Gore's documentary an inconvenient truth with the UK having the presidency in two thousand and five Blair was also convinced that climate change was both real and required an urgent response like his conservative predecessor.

What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.
Hospitals get paid more if patients listed as COVID-19
"If if if an emergency room or hospital writes down that the patient had cove it when they died they give thirteen thousand dollar check from the feds and they put him on a ventilator they get thirty nine thousand dollars is that possible what those are for our hospital admissions okay well yes if they have coal bed that's what the Medicare will pay the hospital for taking care of that patient that Roger but it seems to incentivize maybes putting somebody on a ventilator hi monetarily I don't I don't I don't know how that vibes with you know what the nurses doctors and nurses think are right well you know the thing is that some doctor had determined that run and made that diagnosis but basically it's it's a lot of work to take care of these patients the amount of money the Medicare things it takes to take care of them by the probably cause more than alternately yeah probably does to be honest yeah but what they didn't want to have happen is that hospitals were incentivized not to take care of these patients that have all right you know the idea is that there's there's there's a cell reimbursement for taking care of them all right I don't think that that's the problem what's you know what's going on out there in fact if you look missions are down and and ICU admissions are down you know death rates were down they went up on simple think of the miles for some reason I'm not sure why but now they're down again today right so we are doing better in terms of how the virus is behaving in California good that's excellent and there's so many numbers to go over right now like I can't believe that New York is still not getting a handle on this where everybody else you know seems to be you know grasping at how to do this sh well New York having a problem with death and that if you look at their debts their desks are in nursing homes right now they made a huge mistake early on and the and the mistake was that they said that any patient with code that had to be accepted back into the nursing home they came from now that that that was a huge disaster because what they did is they needed all their nursing homes with coded patient while and unfortunately a nursing home generally houses the exact kind of person who is at great risk sure I'm dying from Kobe they're old and they and they have comorbid diseases that's why they're in a nursing home and boy it's been a disaster for them I mean who would have made that decision now well I think the governor did oh my god actually I think he said that yeah I think he said what yeah wasn't aware that somebody in his administration made that decision right but how is that possible doctor where everybody else and every other city made the opposite decision well again they weren't following basic science and and basic scientific principles the scientific principles in a pandemic are you isolate the sec right and for some reason we got this idea that we were going to isolate the sick and the well and when you do that you don't have any place to put the sec right turns out that they didn't have places to put the check they they have an empty field hospital they had an empty ship they had you know even their own I think Jared center had dad's dad's available so people will look at this over time she cannot say Gee we could handle this differently and hopefully we will learn because colder this is with us it's going one thing the lockdown did walk down pretty much guaranteed it did it save lives and it prevented the Sir John our hospitals but it also prevented anytime a whole herd immunity so cold it will be with us for quite a while it'll it'll kinda smolder along right and you know this concept of a second wave will happen and hopefully by the time that happens we will be learned a lot so we're not going to repeat what happened in New

Impact of COVID-19 on the Cosmetic Industry
"Numbers are starting to roll in about what's happening to the beauty industry right now. According to NPD prestige clean beauty is up. Eleven percent this year despite the rest of beauty sales and this prestige beauty being down fourteen percent and I think we might have talked about this before but I expect to see more of this. People really interested in health wellness ingredients and they wanna feel good so the type of beauty that is starting to sell is the clean beauty categories. Very interesting what is clean. I what if I was doing the actual news online TV somewhat of the background? Who would come by and just like give color commentary on everything the newscasters? That's the job. I want that is your job right now. Okay next up. Excellent news out of Brazil with regards to animal testing. Brazil's largest state actually had banned animal testing on cosmetics and there was a challenge there by industry trade groups. That wanted to still be able to do that. Lower the Supreme Court. I know it but get this. The Supreme Court in Brazil ruled that the state does have the authority to ban animal testing. And that is such good news for cruelty. Free beauty advocates down in South America. I WANNA meatiest like no cruelty advocates. That's it will lobbyists for cosmetics companies. Want to save money. I'm guessing but even he I think most to industry people are getting on board right now realizing get that. Bunny get that cruelty free. You know. Okay I'm doing a tick tock. News item again. Watch tick tock guys. It's like what I've been doing to find out what's going on with beauty there are. This is so scary zero. Take a radio's of people. Removing their moles and skin tags at home you guys have no I love. Diy Dermatology but please do not try this right now. One video of skin tag removal had ten million people watching it and then you know how the kids are like with the Purple Shampoo thing. One person puts up a tick tock video. Everybody's gotTA TRY IT. In case it's not clear dermatologists everywhere say do not try to remove any skin tags or moles yourself at home especially moles. You need to get them checked by Dr. Do some if you can't get to the doctor and you're super worried or wait till you can get a doctor's appointment last up this should surprise no one. Cbd sales are expected to spike during the pandemic according to a survey by consumer insights for bright field group forty percent of CD consumers expect to intensify the frequency of their CBD usage. I'm still confused on this because for me when I take. Cbd Internally it does nothing for my anxiety or my sleep levels as we know. I only take it topically for inflammation but whether it is a placebo effect or some people I'm sure do get a anti-anxiety effect from sales of CBD are expected to. I think the CBD curious are now like if not now when I like that Hashtags TVD curious. Okay last item. Just tell us about support creatives. Okay so support creatives. I'm very excited to see. The spotlight shone on beauty freelancers. Because everyone's her in in the economy right now most people I guess if you own Amazon. Or not but Support Creatives is a nonprofit that provides financial assistance to people in the beauty. World also has mentorship educational programs so their first campaign is a Motorola razor campaign with celebrity makeup artist. John we love Sir John. He did this big contest with them last week offering corporate donations and it was like if you did created one of his five makeup looks and tagged. Sir John and the right Hashtag. They gave fifty bucks for each like up. You didn't even have to win just for participating. They were giving fifty dollars to this report. Creatives Fund. I that's so cool so cool so I'm really proud of Sir. John Really Proud of support. Creatives I'm just really excited to see you know. Listen it's not going to solve the problem. It's not gonNA put every working makeup every makeup artist back to work but I'm happy to see attention being Put on freelance makeup artists. Because they're not necessarily getting or not necessarily they're not getting the benefits that were seeing with small businesses and I'm not saying small. Businesses are like dining out by any stretch of the imagination. Nobody's living high on the hog right now but certainly not freelancers and Chris McMillan told us on our special episode of these people are independent contractors so funds like this are really going to help them out so you guys should keep a look out on your social media online so basically you don't have to give money but by doing something. A big corporation will give money on your behalf which is

Do you know how to coach?
"All right for this week's episode. I WanNa Talk About Coaching No. I didn't talk telling your employees what to do. I said I'm talking about coaching. That's right they aren't the same thing although to me it is out. There think they are. If your idea of good. Coaching is advice oriented. Meaning use phrases. Like I do this or try this instead. You're definitely teaching. And depending on the person in your relationship with them. It might actually yield some results but real coaching leads employees and peers to figure out their own solutions rather than offering solutions for them. Sir John Whitmore Renown Executive Coach and author wrote in his book. Coaching for performance that Real coaching unlocks a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It helps them learn rather than teaching them. Which is what we all want anyway to get where we need to go as close to honor road as possible to be led and not pushed to decide for ourselves rather than having the decision made for us. Teaching is important and it's necessary but it should be reserved for actual objective skills where the teacher is universally recognized expert in most organizations. The vast majority of coaching opportunities don't fall under this umbrella. In most cases the skills being taught are subjective in nature they have multiple correct answers or the invite people to put their own spin on the execution. I know many leaders who are really good at one of these things but very few who excel both so. What are some of the attributes of good coaching listening asking questions? Empathy pointing out a person's strengths. Creating a structured environment where irrelevant noises avoided and successes more likely encouraging creation of goals and ultimately allowing you the person to find their own solution. Why does it seem to be so hard for leaders? The two primary reasons are one. It takes time to do it right. It takes time telling a person the answers quick setting the stage that allows them to figure it out on their own is often tedious work and it carries some risks that they won't figure it out and the failure reflect poorly on you as the leader. The other reason is ego. Some leaders believe that if they're people are able to solve their own problems but there won't be an obvious connection to the relevance and the importance of that leaders presence. Many of these leaders are actually really good. People that just don't live willin `ambiguities or they worry their own boss in able to see their contribution unless it's really obvious in doesn't need to be inferred improving. Your coaching skills doesn't require going back to school or months of training. But it does require a purposefulness that understands the process of learning is even more important than the skills being learned because that process makes the relationship stronger and it sets the stage for future success.

Comparing Graduate Degree Programs
"We're going to begin today with Daniel in Virginia Daniel. Welcome to the call. How can I serve you today sir? John thanks thanks so much for Talking to me I'm I'm pretty new to the radical personal finance but I thought I had a question that I've been searching through the back Cadillac Cadillac four and it. It just kind of concerns a master's degrees and Basically situation as my girlfriend is looking at doing a masters this fall and she's kind of apply to programs and gone in and basically. I just wanted to get your thoughts on. How should I think about Paying and kind of helping her out and basically She She. The cost of programs are Efficiently different one is twenty thousand dollars And the other is basically eighty thousand dollars and she makes about forty thousand dollars right now on could make you know maybe fifty sixty k when she finishes in two to three years and You know I make About seventy five thousand dollars a year and I really liked to to help her out in some way But I just want to know how how you think about kind of comparing those two programs they obviously have different reputations but they have vastly different costs. And just you know any any advice would be really appreciated. What would the masters degree be in? What areas of study it? It is in international development and they're slightly different focuses on the programs. But but that's basically it when you say that her income would go potentially from forty thousand dollars to fifty or sixty thousand dollars. Would she be would is that a guaranteed a pay increase for example her current job where she's happily employed says? If you have a masters degree will pay you an extra ten or twenty thousand dollars per year or is that a guess as to what she would now be qualified to go out in the marketplace. And look for. Yeah that that's definitely a gas. Josh not not guaranteed. How much money does she have currently saved pay for a master's degree? She has twenty thousand dollars in cash and and about ten thousand in investments. Does she have any other debt other than Does she have any of the debt? Currently I note that neither of us have debt and the difference between the twenty thousand dollars school in eighty thousand dollars school. I would imagine one is much much more prestigious but is there any sense that you can be confident that there would be a a major difference in her job prospects if she had the name Brand School. I so I do think her job prospects would be better with the name brand school. It's hard to really quantify how much better the prospects would be you know. It's a bigger alumni network and A more recognized program. The twenty thousand dollars program has it's only about five to ten years old kind of thing. Well here's how I approach it. Just kind of a few things got a lot of color to give you a fairly brief answer and just hit some hits is high high points on it for you so number one. It's dangerous for you to do financial planning together with a woman that you're not married to if you want to give her money and just simply say here's a gift of money then of course that's always you're right and I'm sure she will appreciate that. But given you have no legal protections of marriage you should not expect that there's any guarantee of your quote unquote investment into her education so marriage. If if you if you're married to somebody then you get divorced while then the judge sits down and you look at how much of each of us contributed etcetera and who's earned money and how we supported one another and things like supporting your spouse while you're spouses in school. Become a meaningful part of divorce settlement when you are unmarried unless you have some kind of financial agreement between the two of you which you can do as unmarried people then you just simply need to think that any money that I give. Her is just simply a straight gift and so from that regard from a financial perspective. That's not necessarily a very safe thing for you because you're giving money to somebody with no guarantee of return now. I doubt that that's a big concern for you. But as a financial planner need to start with number two with regard to a masters degree. I'm a fan of education and I think that generally more education does help I I question if credentials ation is necessary in many careers but there are some careers in which it really is helpful. I have a masters degree myself. Someday I my guess is someday I'll do a PhD at the moment. It's not interesting to me but someday because I'm the kind of person who likes to check off list okay. I'll get a PhD. But what I do think makes sense is to not overpay for it and I would be shocked if the eighty thousand dollar degree turned into that much more of job options that couldn't be achieved with twenty thousand dollar degree now. Is it possible sure? Are there field in which the the right network makes all the difference certainly You can make I think a strong business case at times for something like going into a name brand education ED- education market getting the Harvard. Nba Because of access to the alumni network because of access to the job offers. Sometimes you can make a very strong argument for the name brand law schools. Because of getting the plum the plush the pump plum internships. The really the really high level introduced with the high firms and that pedigree can be very very helpful for you that said It's a lot of money and so I would not go into debt for a master's degree and so what I would say. Is that if she wants to pursue the name brand degree I would either figure out a way to simply pay out of pocket for it Working her way through. Maybe you have to do it. More slowly or I would find a way to get reimbursed as part of a job so changed to a job where there's GonNa be some kind of reimbursement system otherwise I would go with the lower cost degree. I think that if you go with lower-cost degree you can check the box for credential. Ization yes. I have a master's degree and then on the side. You can access any social network yourself. You can access any demonstrate any level of capability you can study To whatever degree you want I have never found With the exceptional a holden exception for a technical study like perhaps something like Law School Engineering School But in international development I cannot imagine that that the the actual course of study makes a difference in her knowledge. You can learn so much more as a self taught student and you can advertise yourself so much more without necessarily having to get the credential that to me. It just seems like a waste of money if I had the difference between twenty thousand dollars. Eighty thousand dollars available as far as Of of of of money What I would do is I would focus first on getting the twenty thousand dollar degree and then I would take the time on the on the side to market myself. Effectively build a career oriented website. Make sure that I'm systematically building my presence in the field. You know an international development podcast is going to be far more helpful for her than You know where she gets to meet everybody. That's going to be the most helpful. And most impactful way for her to build her career versus getting an eighty thousand dollar degree. And so if I had the choice between spending twenty thousand and eighty thousand I would go twenty thousand because I have the money and can pay for it and then I would invest money into developing my brand reading the books doing the projects writing the papers writing the essays writing the blog. Post writing the books that are not a current that are currently needed in my field of study and relieved the financial stress. The only exception would be in my opinion if you found somebody who some company that we're willing to pay the full price of the degree and then in that situation things would be slightly different.

What are the consequences of Trump's impeachment trial?
"And joining us now John store who is a contributing writer the Washington monthly in the editor and publisher of the editorial board a daily newsletter about politics in plain English for the common good way he just write the article Donald Trump will have his revenge when he does be ready welcome to background briefing John Stoll thank you for having me Sir John last week's activities particularly the closing vote on Friday where the Republicans voted against having any witnesses or any documents in this bogus said thing that they call it a trial in the Senate the impeachment trial there wasn't a trial it was clearly there the vote was orchestrated behind the scenes by Mecom none of it was accidental and you're right that Lamar Alexander is the final act was doing his friend Susan Collins Republican made a big favor with these very Collins I'm popular and facing reelection could safely vote yes said that she could not have campaign at home with her to keep her moderate reputation intact so that's an example of how it was orchestrated so what do you expect in the next couple of days we've got that super ball today Sunday proceeded on fox with an interview between president trump and shown Hannity that'll be a love fest and then more wrangling in the Senate somewhat few trial on Monday and perhaps even on Tuesday state of the union Tuesday evening and then Wednesday the vote to acquit trump says that's the schedule but one of the consequences do you think to the American people well the consequences are going to be that it was a sham trial that is going to not do the president any favors I think the problem is that the American voters have a very short memory and the media tends to track that pattern itself the student is soon as Lamar Alexander voted no that was pretty much the beginning of the end of the media's attention to the impeachment trial in the Senate it will I think by the time we get to Wednesday we will barely even remember that there was an impeachment trial on on on but last week and all of that is that is going to be reinforced by normal things like there's a Superbowl and then there's the the Iowa caucuses coming up and so there's a good a normal things but is going to be deep and much more cynically by Sean Hannity interviewing the president you know during the most watched eight of TV the end of the year and it is it should be troubling to people it might might take in all of this is that we have we all have to be better citizens so it's very easy to point the finger at the Republicans say they're doing this to us Democrats and liberals I can feel a sense of powerlessness like all my god I can't believe what's going on this is terrible and then there's a kind of urge to just walk away well where are you going to walk away too this is a **** this either you're going to you know you're either you're an American or you're gonna leave this country and most people are not going to leave this country and and what do you get what do you want to do if you're going to walk away you cannot vote you know you're not going to participate but yet that reality is that yes a lot of people won't vote they won't participate and that's it exactly what somebody like trump wants to see to see so so everything that I've been writing last week no matter how much doom and gloom that there might be he is really an effort to urge people to goose them into seeing this is really bad but we we really each of us has to do our part and our part is voting apart is talking about this I don't mean like being angry all the time because I don't think that's humanly sustainable but we definitely have to keep these crimes that the president committed at the forefront of our conversation so the impatient process itself of course almost from day one is trump is reminded that the American people every opportunity gets and his supporters do and it resonates amongst the forty percent that support him that the Democrats route to get it from day one and until she the record reflects that I remain of yelling at a local congressman I think very early in the first months of trump's administration when he went to the floor the house and call for impeachment and it's been going on for some time Nancy Pelosi resisted it and finally obviously couldn't resist anymore because of pressure from the base if you will the democratic base but what happened in the Senate is both predictable and inevitable to my mind and my fear is that we have reached a point in this culture in America where right a wrong don't matter win or lose is all that counts and the Republicans are winners and the Democrats to lose and I have a think I have a terrible sense that the Democrats can have a hard time they don't have anybody running for president looks like they can beat trump I don't know that they're putting any effort into winning back the Senate and they could even lose the house so unless they do what you said and they have to do that in droves everybody has to vote every last person has to vote in this country to get rid of this guy because the Russian's potent and they're gonna do what they can to keep him in power they'll cheat and he's actually he'll actually encourage him to change his already done that he done it last time he got caught impeached for trying to do it again and he will do it now that he's been exonerated he'll do it in spades so this is the landscape ahead I mean tell me I'm being pessimistic no no I don't think you're being pessimistic sorry no I don't think you're being pessimistic but I also don't see hopelessness and us either I think it's a very liberals tend to kind of pretend a little bit the liberals and what I mean by pretenders that liberals are liberalism is not is not political liberalism is really a state of mind it's a it's a set of preferences it's it's more in line with fact and reason that's what makes it liberal right if I want something and I worked to achieve that goal I pro as a liberal I would seek a democratic process work toward consensus marshal the facts in my favor or maybe spend them a little bit but but all that's in the interest of using persuasion instead of force to get what I want right well you know conservatives are I put the that word in quotes conservatives don't think that way you know that it's all about power and morals or morality is either an impediment or to tool to exploit to get what what you want and then in the end it in if it if it is an impediment really just run it right over and just you know don't worry about it and you to an you're not worried about appearing hypocritical either because the never matter to you anyway it also liberals tend to be very long term oriented you know they we tend to think about ten years from now what we want right conservatives are very very myopic they think about what's going to happen tomorrow all of this explains Mitch McConnell's behavior you know we a lot of people would say well exoneration equivalents going without exoneration is not much of an acquittal is it and he that may be true but he doesn't care because he will he will win today right now it's complicating all of this is that we have a very this is not that I don't mean to speak in monolithic terms here but for the most part the Washington press corps is entitled moral that's how I put it it is it will not come to a moral conclusion based on facts because to come to a moral conclusion would be a value judgment that the profession tends to purge from its members in in to be anti Marlys actually complementary to the profit oriented ness of the industry so with the problem with this impeachment trial is the problem of his coverage I mean is the most attention was paid to you know Wheeler won't for Republicans vote to call for witnesses and if they do or don't that's the measure of whether the president wins or loses right less attention was paid to the actual evidence pointing to guilt you know and and I laughed because it it it it's ridiculous right I mean if we had a moral press we would be looking at the reality which is expressed by way of evidence pointing to a moral conclusion right but what you get is this the well known both cider ism you know that the Democrats say this the Republicans say that in truth and lies are treated equally and it's a no so the conflict between the two parties is prioritized over the substance of the evidence against the president so all of this kind of being a citizen only know what they know because the press tells them right and if the press is telling them there's just two sides fighting all the time well that's what usually most people most of the time you're going to understand that to be the case when it comes to
What to Expect from 'Lord of the Rings: Gollum'
"I totally forgotten that this Lord of the Rings Column Game had been announced early last year. Same Lord of the Rings. Ghalem a game where you play as column based on the books not the movies in a Prequel to Lord of the Rings The update this week. We've got some game playing some information about the game. This week is also confirmed for places and five and Xbox in twenty twenty one confirmed Nexgen Platform. So what are some of the details yet. Well let's see here We don't gone is GonNa look like obviously not gonNa look like Indie Circus's version of dumb. They mentioned in that early illustrations of gallon. where he's huge like shop thing much Fisher told edge edge magazine that Tolkien didn't have a size reference for them? To begin with so in the first illustrations he's gigantic like a monster. Emerging from the swamp cool token like revise is that. I'm sure I'm sure. Oh wait a minute what also is it up to Tolkien. Here's a big Gomez. Yeah he was a hobbit. Yeah we talking talking about in these early in these early illustrations. He hadn't determine that he was hobbit yet. Don so that's a good point but there's a whole like the weibring up for something like Star Wars is the whole story group that's helping to side with cannon and what's not but with Lord of the rings it's like anybody could just paint whatever they wanted. Yeah that's true that's true. Yeah yes bipedal. It'll creature out the window. I hope it's I hope it's a riddle generator. That's the game. Yeah you know what I hope. It's going to be a fishing in a fishing. I love fishing game. I'm sure there will be fishing moments. I hope how else how else you exactly. Luckily you love just fishing. If not fishing mini games you love the fishing games like bass master. Yes I was going to mention the Black Bass and the Blue Marlin brand. Yes this great. Those guys are great. Yeah we are. They can't can't tell if serious no love fishing. RPG's big fan. They have such a strong fishing. If if you go to different lakes and use a boat if so wait. I'm sorry if I missed this. Who is the developer of the data? Data Lick So. That's not warner brothers. No because Warner Brothers has the right to the movies. The move gains based on the movie shadow of war isn't n specifically they WANNA to move away. They are using they use. Peter Jackson's version of knowledge Okay all right we know that in ORCs look like ORCs in the as In this game so it's data look entertainment which they've made a bunch of games that I've never heard of he's like did you did you. We were talking about so they said there's decision making in this game which all games have like dialogue decision making on the Duma or not Damon Telltale game Telltale style game. And I think it's just going to be an action game with segments. I dated has made point and Click Adventures. I think that's kind of what they're known for. Click like you know if it's a Prequel who knows what it gone. We're going to get but he doesn't lend himself to like you know action need three world still sure it could be like like almost daily Stealth Ish game yeah. I don't think it's going to be like gallon. Like throttling a bunch of people and infiltrating base. But I think it'd be cool if you're like avoiding you know stuff stuff obstacles and then maybe exploration I mean he can he can basically move vertically on walls he it could be a climate uncharted mccollum. Gholam a good way to sir. John's like that's like a combination of climbing puzzles. Yes and throttling gum hiding all the triggers an internal final dialogue options Gome should absolutely be able to climb everything. That's what he does and fish. We blame as deep into his corruption by the one ring and he conveys a different set of emotion than those seen in the films because he needs to be more sympathetic and relatable because you're playing his his care changing the character to fit your interests. He's fairly senior Eh. Things that cute song sneakers. But he's a betrayer and Taylor's we can expect stealth Alf gameplay dual personality mechanic huge levels so that doesn't sound like one click adventure huge levels in a move away from the violence. The dominance other Lords utterings games lord of the rings plural is shadow lords of the ring. If this takes place between the Hobbit and Lord of the rings that's an era in which ghalem goes to more door gets captured word gets tortured gets captured again by Era Gorn when he set free goes to Merck quilt. You go into more detail this. This is interesting okay. So we're explained this to me yesterday. Yesterday you want me to go into more detail and year thirty thirteen We know that the bill meets Ghalem and yeah gets gets the ring from him. Yeah so then. At that point a gallon is like whoa. You Know He. He knows that there's a thing called the Shire and he knows what that there's half lanes and that WHO baggins begins right and we know that because in the very beginning of ordering seen the movies he's shouting that it'd be well being tortured and and more door and that's because he he leaves and he goes to try to figure out where his ring is and at some point he gets captured and taken and tortured. But then Sarah and says you probably try to trick us and they're not giving us all this information but you did give give us this great information that there's somebody in bags in the shower or whatever the show in the movie goes Shire back in. They all the black. Riders are repeating so then Then he uses gallon because they think like. Oh we'll just follow them and he'll lead us right to at some point in their duck alum talks to she. She blob probably and stuff like that. I don't know because then he has a relationship but she later you know where you can say like. Eat these hobbits and we'll make a deal. But then he goes to to to He gets captured by airborne and they want to interview him at that point because they know he had something to do with the ring again. That's trying to figure out what the one if it's the one ring or not but she doesn't realize for a long time he knows it's ring a power. There's there's eleven of them or whatever so that will happen again. Stopped me when I'm going too far Oh I'm just trying to give geographic sense of where gallon could go then. He goes to to be captured by the ELVES. And Merck would and there's a battle there's the There's a the sirens. Dark forces are like you know in Merck. Would at that time and all the stuff happening so there could be a battle sequence in this too but then gallon gets out and then somehow he meets up with the fellowship in under the misty mountains in the minds Maurier. So that means he's probably released for you. He's a ski escapes escapes in the turmoil or something from recruited and during that battle and then he comes across in his lost and maybe more effort longtime because he just comes upon them then and that's that's the point which he joins wins the hunt for the ring again. This is all happening before the game supposed to be set before all that stuff. Yes yes so. I think this would lead up to the point in which he's maybe in market or something like that add maybe it ends with him like finding the fellowship probably doesn't make sense Yeah I guess it would make sense. He's lost the ring so that's why he's on a quest to try and get. Yeah exactly I think that could be the motivation if it's before that if it's when he has the ring like it could be about him like losing the ring in the cave and just trying to find it because he lost and then before that which I don't think it would be it'd be him finding the ring being corrupt and kicked out of the village and all that stuff which they also seem to allude to the fact that like through these narrative decisions that you're making within the dialogue as you're single versus column that you can arrive at an ending that's more leaning towards one personality over the others that kind of gives an idea of what the story might be or at least what the ending room gone has technically a happy ending because he gets that rain and it's just yes second or two. Yeah well spoilers We my favorite part of that whole Lord dumped by the way. Is that in when you saw the hobbit movies which are terrible but they expand a lot on this in the books golic just disappear. Excuse me Gandalf just disappears from the book and then he comes back in like a hundred pages later is like Oh sorry I had to go take down this neck. Romance her in the forest and then he's just back in the book. It's not a part of the story story. It's never addressed again when you're a child reading this book. What what just happened like he kicks he kicks out of Merck? Would and it happens off off camera and the book it's insane. Yeah he like fleas. I think even showed that a little bit in the hobbit movies Dayton whole subplot in. But that's what they're talking about. Well so what's your impression of this Looking about the comments a lot of people were like why would I want to play his column in a game of any guarantee and Lord of the Rings would I want to be going. Well certainly sets you in like more of Steph environment airman. So that's cool. It's different than the shadow of war or more door games that we played. I think he's really interesting negatively. But it's the game play you know. I don't know there's there's a reason that those games are like sword and board. That's a very established format for making a successful fund. Video game now has been like a kind of a controversial addition to the Lord of the Rings Really Creepy. And I don't really you know it's really Peter. Jackson did a lot with that character to make it. I think more fleshed out an interesting resting than I ever thought of in the books and I think that's a really good thing so I'll do that. It'd be great also a credit to Andy Circus and you know my policy on elves. And everything. Only tolkien's allowed to use those. Yeah that's elves and hobbits especially if those are in other things come on how lame up with your own stuff. How lame are the ELVES pitcher? Yeah Oh my God. Nobody does not the half lanes man. They're they're in the game that's like nobody else can do hobbits but they cheat by having hassling. Yeah aw come up with your own fantasy stuff. I agree it's not as bad. I can't even talk about the witcher though because later episodes knows of other bad things anyway. Lord of the Rings Column Coming 2021. PS Five xbox series x alongside.

known as Sir John Hargrave and Sir John Welcome into bed crypto JAL travis this is going to be the best episode ever wow and an we have also with us the most confident guest uh-huh that we've ever had here I think he's breaking has already I think he is cute so we're going to have a really good time with this interview you and I am holding your book Sir John In my hands right now that I picked up at coin mention in Philadelphia which which you you did not give me for Free I had to buy it but then you gave me a crypto which almost full value when I bought we'll talk about that a little bit but I tell you I found this really funny so joe comes up to the table where resell the books and he goes up like yeah I'd love a book and then a shirts twenty five dollars and this look on your face it would just a- keep flashing back to this because it was it was barely perceptible it was like really you're gonNA charge me for this book even though I'm going to have you on the show but then what you got out of it was twenty five dollars in crypto so it's essentially like you're getting the book for free that's never been done before in the publishing industry never know it hasn't been working to tell ever all you listeners how you can get one of these as well and you're GonNa want to and get a crypto rebate essentially a John the first thing I wanted to ask you is you know when did you visit the Queen and get knighted well the story comes from my first book which was the humor book called Prank the Monkey and the idea was I was going to prank the world's largest institutions so I- pranks like Michael Jackson Madonna I crank the irs in pranked the queen of England I said Your Majesty I wrote her a letter I said Your Majesty I would like to be knighted because I just thought Sir John Hargrave sounded so much more classy doesn't it does it is very classy gives you a lot of respect yeah so I got a letter back from Buckingham Palace on the official letterhead and basically the data in order to be knighted must do something honorable and I said well that's a lot of work so I went down to my local county courthouse where you can pay to have your name legally changed so for thirty five bucks I got my name changed today here Damn Sir John Hargrave so basically the queen told you to bugger off and you just did it yourself that's right it's the the the easy way to Knighthood Travis do that Travis I wanna I wanna be Surgical Noun Abuser says I'm going to be gender specific diffic- absurd travis better that's way better it's like do something noble I'm just going to spend thirty five bucks go down my name Jade's way easier I love that so so you you actually had a your background is you know when you started out you had this website Zogu would you say Zilog z Yuji right yeah you did all kinds of all kinds of hilarious type of stuff and so you know knowing that Joel and I are a bit of pranksters ourselves water but may before you get into some of the crypto stuff because I know our audience likes funny stop what are some of the more hilarious pranks that you pull well we did one where we faked a Michael Jackson showed up this ten thousand dollar a plate charity dinner here in Boston and we hired a lookalike actor to comment basically get in so they really gave him the are fake Michael They gave him the celebrity treatment he had his own table we we rented so for the evening and had a whole entourage and everything and they figured it out just as we were leaving the side door they came running after us as were pushing fake Michael into the limo and it was all over the front page of the Boston newspapers my gosh is he was being shoved in into the car into the Limo hands off me I swear it was smooth criminal it was like something out of a movie is just said now those were there that were like youtube days or is it before youtube when when was that eh because it sounds like that's the kind of thing for video yet there was a video that went with it it was just as youtube was starting to take off put my probably my most well known prank was something called the credit card prank I did back in the early days and we basically you know you know how assign your credit card your your signature every credit card receipt in nobody ever checks the signature I thought that was ridiculous so I basically went around signing dozens of receipts with just crazy names it just started with like Beethoven and Zeus and then it went into like hieroglyphics and like modern art in crazy stuff and I took pictures of these put it online it was one of the first big viral pieces and really built our websites dot com from that piece the credit card prick so kind of in the spirit of Ken Casey you are a merry prankster. That's that's what I'm getting here yeah I'm kind of a tack no pranksters so I started my career basically it's kind of a comedy technology writer and in my book blockchain for everyone I start with the story of this media company where I worked during the beginning of the Internet and my job was to make this stuff understandable to everyday people and to make it kind of accessible and fun and so I started out as a comedy writer I was a Geek at heart I really love technology and kind of combining comedy and technology was like my thing that was my stick and at night I would pull these outrageous crazy pranks at right about that on my My humor site which I I ran on the side that's great so now I also WanNa talk to you about yeah you wrote a book called mind the hacking right up and I think that's great I'm actually working on a project called stacking skills because I think it's it's sort of in the same line I think we we maybe were kindred spirits there Mr Mr Yeah I want I want to talk about mind hacking a little bit because I've found that a fascinating book I have actually actually bought that book and I didn't get any crypto refund so I'd like to get my grip to refund on that one if I could tell us tell us you have you give us a couple of quick little packs for our audience that could really maybe help them get level up a little bit what pewter and like any computer your mind can be reprogrammed and in fact we have kind of you know buggy thinking we have like bugs in our programming that we can kind of work around and so I tell the story of my own life and how I had a lot of crazy thinking and behavior going on and how I managed to kind of re program all of that and we actually have in that Book Mein Hacking we have a a a twenty one day program that you can follow vet basically teaches you these sort of mine hacking exercises that you can use to to to learn this so the simplest thing you can do is just to become aware of the mind so here's a simple thought experiment everybody can do it while they're listening to this just stop for second and just think about your mind just think about your mind and when you do that you see that there's something called the U. that separate from something called your mind and that separation of those two things is the big beginning of mine hacking because we have to do is be able to pull yourself out of your mom normally were lost in the mind movie the Mental Movie All Day Long if you can and start to develop the skill of separating you from your mind then you can start looking at it like a computer and hacking the code that runs it and that is ultimately what led me to blockchain was this understanding that I could build an entire early new life for myself. I could completely reprogram my life reprogram I thinking stack skills Travis who what I already Dan and become a leader of this new blockchain revolution and that's what Hap- cal farts of sorry I was just thinking about my mind.

"Sir John how does the real towards relief foundation help the victims of natural disasters well we started a realtor relief foundation Stephen about eighteen years ago and this is on the bike members across the country donations we raised and the main thing I'm on a Monday over thirty two million dollars. grace to help victims of natural disasters in what we focus on the housing problem interesting and we're talking about things like. being able to pay the mortgage or if you have to move out bring it will create a mortgage helping them find places to live. if they have been displaced by natural disaster the last year the fighters in California we're labelworks California people we work this spring in Omaha Nebraska area will flood victims. one of the cool things is that all the money that was donated there are no charges for administration so the national association candles all of that for free and John that is just so interesting because in a lot of charities we do hear that there's overhead so if you donate a hundred dollars maybe only ninety maybe eighty maybe fifty actually go to the people in need but with the realtors relief foundation one hundred percent of the money goes to the people in need absolutely true it's one of the things I am most proud of about our will to release foundation absolutely and John another thing we should mention is that N. A. R. doesn't decide where the money goes rather the local associations all across the country make those decisions. again where they have a meeting with the board with that such need arises they'd be immediately and we try to get that money to him as best they can sometimes within a couple of days that's just wonderful and John tell me again it's called the realtors really foundation but as we mentioned it helps victims whether they're real towards or not wherever the need is located in the United States but also people who were not real tors can donate correct correct it could be funded through a number of different sources whether that's members associations on there that the local and state associations between not be happy with that that person that could be the general public. but most of that money comes from my realtor family John as we see the damage caused by Dorian up and down the east coast of America I know the real towards really foundation will be there to help as soon as the rebuilding begins we have already had notifications out they are prepared that border thrusters that makes is waiting for the calls from those associations have been adversely affected by this terrible her chain on the east coast of the United States John. really appreciate you joining us on the show today and talking about one of the greatest ways people can help the victims of disasters the real towards relief foundation thank you John thank you very much it was my pleasure to be with you you're very welcome jons maybe with a diner realty in Edina Minnesota and the president of the national association of realtors. coming up on real estate today what if you're selling your house and it needs renovations which you can't afford.

"It is going to happen and the question is just like how our governments around the world going to respond to that very exciting. I mean talk about reinvention. That's reinventing money in the way so you don't need to have your swift guy in the back room anymore. Making these transfers between different currencies. We'll have one currency that everybody uses where one planet where one species. We should have have won money. That's the project that we're bilas. Wow i would think that that would be something like a government. You know who knows does it. Still it's still very wild westie so you're thinking something like facebook or google or some tech company could potentially pull this off and everybody he just signs up and then blam. That's the basements got a good shot at doing it because they've got such a global reach but there are a few other companies that that might be able to do that <hes> but that's why this new facebook project. The libra project has so much credibility is <hes>. They're already thirty on the phones of of two billion people. I think worldwide so that's yes yes so that's pretty good. They're already there mark and penetration but you know you have to remember that betamax rule you we. We don't always we don't always get the best thing. I still have a betamax so facebook could be betamax. You never know it could be laserdisc. We'd i watch all kurt russell and goldie hawn films on it every night and betamax. I'm not i loved dubbed betamax. It was so much better yeah so let's talk about how you ended up in poland where you in poland or was. This just wasn't pulling a funny scene in the book where i'm flying all around the world because this blockchain industry is really global and we chain for everyone. We really mean everyone know. It's happening everywhere. I'm in poland at one point. <hes> talking to a polish polish energy drink company and the idea we had was that they would create their own initial currency currency their own crypto currency right and it would be integrated into the can so to be clear. This was like a red bull of colon. It's like red poll. Okay okay will a red bull energy drink with low q._r. Code on it and you scan q._r. Code and you earn essentially a cryptocurrency orna token. You're kind of a little digital money. No different from like how you might earn rewards points at starbucks or something like that okay. The difference is that this would be really more money so this money you could trade and buy and sell on digital exchanges like you would buy and sell dollars. Okay the yan dan or into euros or something like that so we called. This idea. That can is coin so i go out to poland. I fly out there. I'm all hyped 'cause i've just had an energy drinks and i'm you've just had a red pole and i i walk into this room and i'm buzzing with excitement and ready to pitch and i am confronted with a trio of dour-faced executives who could not be less interested in the red pole idea and their c._e._o. Who was the guy who invited me there. Who i was there to see turns out. He was in singapore so the c._e._o. I find is in singapore and i'm like this makes no sense whatsoever them awesome no. I'm trying desperately pitch. This idea of the can is the coin this q._r. code and i look over at the c._f._o. Afo who is by the way does not even have a laptop. He's just got a yellow legal pad and on the pad is one word crossed out blockchain. No it did at least provide me with a funny story in the book but it also gave us another idea which is what if the book itself comes with crypto currency so what have we use this same idea so i went back to simon and schuster unlike look the cover or is the coin. I'm not going to give up. I'm still like on this idea of mike imaginative in the book. We've got a little q._r. Code you scan the q._r. Code and you get the bitcoin and my editor jeremy ruby strauss says <hes> you know the last time i heard an original idea in the book. Publishing industry industry was never and that is an original idea. I said thank you so we tried to make this happen. It turns eh very difficult for many heck nicole reasons to include bitcoin with every book but we did pretty easy to steal right. That is the big. The problem is we into a bookstore in a way that like somebody wouldn't just sit there and scan and the q._r. code like hoover. We're up all the bitcoin and never by the books rate war like redeem the bitcoin and then return the book is books are returnable. Bitcoin is not right so okay other. They're all these problems doing it and <hes> we spent many many hours but finally figured out an alternate solution <hes> so i connected with this company called queen in base <hes> and another company called maker that makes us crypto currency called die d._a. And they basically said look we will <hes> kinda cosponsor this if you would like to offer this to people who buy the book we will give them five dollars worth of this die crypto currency in a coin base wallet because to them they want to get more people using this coin wallet app and they want to get into the hands of more people mike. This is a win because now we're getting the people on the blockchain blockchain for everyone. We're getting people by. The book like this is just a win. Everybody runs grape so we did this deal but then i said i've got a way to make it even better leads stead of five dollars. Make it twenty five dollars. 'cause the book retails for about twenty five dollars. You're getting twenty five dollars. You're essentially getting the book for free so we said let's do it and that's what we've done. So if you go to blockchain for everyone and your listeners can can buy a copy of the book that will come with twenty five dollars of this die cryptocurrency along with it you can redeem it knack for cash or or you can use it in the coin wallet to to buy goods and services and it's never been done before. It's really excited. Wow that's really neat you know i we we had this chat hat before because i wanted to go try and get twenty five dollars of die and <hes> and unfortunately you you gave me a copy of the book so i paused but as as as you as you suggest it i still kind of want to get my free book and my and my die and then i'll just gift my my other copy sure yeah let's do it. I think i will mostly just because i've never bought any crypto. So i kind of want some some sort of crypto coin before i die and yes before i die. Obviously i'm not gonna die anytime soon. I'm hoping to make it to immortality as we say or so. No not immortality more like death is optional face yes but yeah larry what say that again the singularity that he heard it. Yes yes right right right where we can upload. Yes some versions that that'd be great great. Okay wow so that yeah. I mean that's my vision for you to my vision for everyone. Is you know those of us who were so excited excited about this technology <hes> we got involved with it like we bought a little bit of it and that changes everything because then you become and owner and then you start thinking about this stuff in a new way and you start thinking about the nature of money and an internet of money and and why does the dollar value and it's just such an interesting <hes> concept to play with and you start thinking about this once you own it and that's why we wanted to get as many people as possible onto the blockchain meaning owning these digital assets and that's why it's such a great deal yeah. It's like <hes> changing the the way you think about what money really is yeah exactly yeah. Is it in the paper in your wallet. You yeah no not really not. It's not just a representation 'cause money is whatever we agree. It is when you were sitting backstage in your secret. <hes> swift room there at the bank like that wasn't he's paper was not that wasn't cash but it was money. It was just a number it was a number flying through the air or one one account to another and then there were apor that just showed how much the number of the hidden in the past and that is the nature of money. It really is kind of all in our heads. It's all just what we agree it. Is that had yeah. I've had that conversation with my dad and i think blew his mind. This was back when i started keeping money a lotta people keep money. I got lucky. I really got lucky so i got so i oh i've started investing and one of my rules of investing is is don't take that money out there. That's for later so i don't have to work forever right. I call him lovingly. Refer to it as the pile right and to me the pile is it's different than money. It's our like it's more like a fire right and i and if you add more wood to the fire then it'll burn longer right and i started saying these things that my dad and he's like what are you talking. He's he's got this attitude where he he keeps money to buy things and then he doesn't have money anymore. He's he never got. The idea of the pile is fire for you. That's really interesting. It's like a fuel <hes>. It's like a field and if i can use that i think that's a really useful analogy. So much of the book is about investing and one of the things i i wanted to do when i wrote this book like the words blockchain investing that was like an oxymoron you know nobody thought of this stuff is investment. They thought of is maybe maybe like. Speculative or kind of you know. Bitcoin was sort of like drug money or the dark web or things like that right right right really find to not only legitimise it that let's say look if you didn't buy a little bit of this five years ago financial planners you know you have basically missed out on on the single greatest money earning opportunity of our time but you also have to think about and this is a great lesson to come from my personal story. Is you have to think about it as hedging risk like it's basically a life of your portfolio in tiny sleep. Yeah i lay it out as like it's i'm talking like between two and a half to maybe ten percent should be in these blockchain based digital asset of your overall investment portfolio but if you do that and i show you all the math very clear over the last four years in the stock market by market would have increased about twenty percent but the stock market bond market market with a little bit like two and a half percent bitcoin would've doubled those returns and the stock market bond market ten percent in these old coins over the last four years ten thousand dollars would have grown to two hundred thousand dollars two hundred thousand dollars in four years and that means you the hour of these new digital. You'll assets that you do have to think about them in a smart way. Be willing to lose it all and do your research rome my book right yeah. It is definitely a how high risk asset at this point right..

"That's just enormously satisfying so let's get into like how how how the so you went through this really funny store. I mean there's this stuff about like you. Were in the fed right and then you you were in poland. You're pitching in trying to get money so i wanna hit some of those yeah because that sounds like a blast yeah yeah. We'll let me tell you kind of the origin story the book i because when i when i wrote it i wanted <hes> essentially you know this the question you asked the beginning what is blockchain and there's recurring enjoy in the book which is i spend six chapters talking about blockchain to someone and then at the end of it. They go so what's blockchain like that is the question that everyone asks asks and i realized as i was writing this book because at first i was like i wanna really user-friendly guides. Blockchain just explains this narrowed all these essays about how the technology works. I sent it off to my editor grade. Jeremy ruby strauss it. It's simon schuster. He's had a bunch of new york times bestsellers. I i trust him completely any reads the book and he gives me feedback and <hes> and he goes well. John is how talks it goes up while i am i wanna say the first section was pretty good <unk>. He goes. I sections pretty good. A second section needs a little work the third section you should probably rewrite and for a section just that entire thank you for your honesty on that you know so he's the greatest these agreements and he was right. He was totally right as i reread it. I was like this is is the same as every other blockchain book on the market. It's a bunch of sort of dry technical descriptions even though i'm trying to make it funny and bring all my comedy writing chops in here. It's still lil boring. Nobody's gonna finish it. I'm like i gotta write. Write a book that people are going to read from cover to cover and want them. We'll oh damn thing and then my friend. The great heather kelly this author <hes> who i respect a lot goes. Have you read. This book called. Save the cat the save the cat is a screenwriting book. It's for movie producers who are writing a screenplay and he says here's how you write a screenplay you ever see. He like a guy writing a screenplay in how have all this colored index cards on the board right it out all the he shows you how to do this in this book. Save the cat and i said that's it. We have to write this book as a story. It's got to be a movie. It has to have an act one act to act three and he has to have characters is in and you have to feel it and that is when i realized that all these blockchain books speak to the head and we had to have one speaks to the heart and that's with with the second wrapped of this was all about was i rewrote the entire freaking book a rewrite okay. This one is a story that really we spoke to the heart as well as the head brought this back to my editor jeremy and he comes back the next day and he goes. We got a page turner because i sat down and read that whole book in one sitting nine hours. He says that never happens and i was like jeremy. I will feed off of that complement for the next two years. Thank you hear me sound a little bit like dana carvey doing smell like george bush george bush nine and again alder this juncture. I'm gonna read the block chain now right now right now. Maybe later on on on the audible dot com audible bestseller just nominated for an audie award. It's true that is a thing audie award assignments. I mean just nominated it for an audio. Were listening to the podcast. You might be interested in listening to the audio book version. We put five hundred hours of work into that. I was was like writing the book a third time and so proud of it's really great. That's amazing okay so now i'm in. I can't wait to read the book a- so you live this story so how much of the origin story or so that's pretty much the origin story of the book and how it got to be a fun romp but can we get some of the stories some of your favorite without giving anything away obviously but let's just tease some of these funds stories that you used as source. I material for this amazing book yeah well. There's <hes> as you mentioned that the federal reserve so the federal reserve is the main bank of you learn a lot of financial financial stuff throughout this book and one of the things is there's a bank called the federal reserve. It's the main bank in america and its banking system but it's also your series of physical buildings. There's twelve banks. One of them is in boston where i'm located and i was invited to a blockchain conference at at the fed so i'm in this building you gotta go through all these security lines metal detectors and all this interrupt mystic in the building because you are literally surrounded by money so all around you are millions of dollars in u._s. Cash hash just like just surrounding you. It's crazy and i'm in the belly of the beast literally mentally the bay untrue <hes> i'm i'm in the promise right so i go down after this conference and i go have lunch and i'm taking a video call on on on on skype with a potential client for our company media sharon remember at this point media showers on full-time into blockchain. We're working with all these new blockchain entrepreneurs all these new startups and i'm talking hang with obliging company that wants to replace the u._s. dollar now. I just want to say that this is the very very definition of the word irony in the federal reserve working on a deal that is going thing to undo the federal reserve. That's amazing basically like virus right yeah. I'm like pages virus right in the heart. Yes reserve and i just loved it the irony of what we were doing in that moment crazy so if if this were like a movie then you know you you could have some of that data. You'd have a little u._s._b. Stick and you'd have a team. You know you sort of crouched in the corner like like talk a whispering furtively yeah well. No you have to have this whole like a swat team thing where you pass off off to this guy and he puts it in a cart and then somebody goes through an air duct and then they zip line down and they put the u._s._b. Stick into a server thing or something and suddenly we have blockchain dollar but now that's not what happened and all all this is happening in the lunchroom. That's what i love. Oh there you go. That's amazing. Yes wow so what's it. What's the fed like. I mean obviously. Do you get this sort of like feel of. I've yes oppression. Fact what's the word you definitely have. The feeling that you are in an extremely powerful an when important building in on one hand it feels like a government building but on the other is just so ornate and it's over the top like the wealth is how much on display ah yes right and the importance of of where you are even though you're the cafeteria where by the way a bowl of soup is a three trillion dollars now i i know you're joking but like i i worked at a bank for bow branch josh about six or eight months or so in downtown los angeles right so this bank is the bank of singapore. It's basically the government bank of singapore called e._s. bank. I don't know what i can't remember but it's basically the government bank of singapore so and they've got a <music> a branch there in l._a. And it's not like an ordinary bank right. It's not they don't have tellers and stuff right. It's a it's a business office for the bank think and what they do is they go out and find movies around hollywood for singapore to invest in <hes>. That's what that's what those guys are doing right but you know that's not either really near here nor there. I got like an insider view of what happens. When you're moving money around in a bank. It was really neat yup. They've got this little room. It's got like a glass window and and you have to have a keycard approx card to get in and only me and the other i._t. Person and then the swift guy was authorized to go in there ever and the only reason i had to go in there was because there was an i._t. Crap in there right so i went in there every day to to log got check check log right but it was just fascinating because there's this little piece actually no there was not a p._c. It was a <music> a networked a printer and every once in a while it would spit out a sheet of paper and that was money yeah. I was like wait a minute what just happened there so this guy would go in there and he's the guy and he would go all right money and then he would take that piece of paper apor out of the room and go over and use the numbers and that was money. I was like wow really to translate the swift. Guy is the international schol transfer guy swift work. That's receiving or sending these payments and every time the spits elevated some enormous sum of wealth from one account onto another probably to finance the movie crazy rich agents right now. We know how that happened right right. Yes yeah. It was just crazy that that's that was the twenty sixteen version of moving money around. It's just crazy to me. It didn't feel you know i grew up. When i was eighteen. I was in the air force and i you know there's levels of security in the government right yeah so my first well almost my whole air force career. I had all of the security. I was in the most secure buildings and so i did this happen right off the bat and you know weird. I guess i don't know i had one of those jobs in the air force that was it was very generic job radar riley from mash yeah. I was in edmond specialist right so those guys can basically be assigned anywhere so so. I just got luck of the draw that my unit required this clearance. It had nothing to do with me now. It's funny yeah had had. I not gotten the clearance then. They'd have to go back to pick somebody else but i did so i got it so you've got this top secret secret security clearance in the wars. You're also in the back room will one of three people who has access to international wire transfers. Yes a life right. I know i've seen the back rooms that that's i. I am very fascinated by seeing the behind the curtain. I like seeing behind the curtain i if i could get to disneyland and get to get the employees back background tour. Yes that would be amazing. I love being in the back rooms in the belly of the beast. That's that's amazing. Well given your track record and i think if you applied to work at disneyworld they would instantly take you backstage in the haunted mansion and say here you go now. Here's a controlled by the way here's the body the frozen corpse of walt disney. We keep it in a refrigerator right. He's in stasis right. We have yeah we have as you want to wake him up for ten or fifteen minutes. It's he's the people have ever been allowed to do this. You're one of them anything for me. That's amazing okay so all right so you you survive. <hes> i take it. You didn't replace the dollar with bitcoin or not not yet but i mean it is happening and i think with this new facebook crypto currency. It's called a libra is <hes> is is the next shot at that but that's ultimately what we're doing is. We're building a global currency for global economy. We're building one money for one world and i think it's inevitable..
"sir john" Discussed on Vroom Vroom Veer with Jeff Smith
"For the third time to vroom vroom beer. How's it going. This is going to be the third and best jeff. Most threes are really good right. If the third one is usually the best 'cause i work in and out right but the third one you got it you land. I think we're gonna nail it. I think we're going to thanks for. Thanks for coming back. Thanks for being here appreciate it. Thank you so you wrote a new book a block chain for everyone and it looks pretty amazing. It's on my shelf shelf and i'll admit i haven't had a chance to crack it open yet but it just looks so fun so i can't wait to learn what you've learned through this reinvent inch yourself journey so talk a little bit about the book yeah. It's a book about blockchain. Which is this technology behind a bitcoin coin in this new class of a digital money so blockchain is what we call the internet of money and i got involved with this back in two thousand thirteen when i bought a little bit of bitcoin okay and bitcoin is price kind of like a stock so the price goes up and down so when i bought it thirteen the price of a single bitcoins coins about one hundred twenty five dollars so i put a bunch of money into this it was really hard to buy had to make a wire transfer to belarus. I didn't even know where belarus was. They all like the first opening chapters of the book talk about this <hes> this very scary purchase. I made a bitcoin cut turns out that four years later in two thousand seventeen in that same bitcoin was twenty thousand dollars so it went from one hundred twenty five dollars to twenty thousand dollars which is like saying is is like a eighteen thousand percent return like the best investment. I will ever have made my life so so here. I have to interrupt you because this is proof. You're not a time traveler. Just just okay question an eighteen hundred. If if you had say like ben time traveler then you would have gone big and that twenty thousand would have been like twenty million or something right so this this is evidence that you just got lucky and you're not really a time traveler from the future. Maybe i'm downplaying my wealth. Ooh smarter okay. I got it so you're you're like a traveller from the show at any rate so excited about the potential of this new digital currency bitcoin in this whole new asset class which we call cryptocurrency as we call them all coins alternative alternative to bitcoin that i took my marketing company called media shower and i completely reinvented the company one hundred percent into this new technology called blockchain all of these clients all this business built over the years and like if you ever ever watched like a professional poker tournament and you see like the poker guy who liked puts is all in pushes all of his chips in one giant of that's what i did it on block shape. That's great. I love it. I love it so this is fun because i've had other folks on the podcast <hes> talk about blockchain crypto and bitcoin and the whole deal and and to be honest with you when when i listened to the show and while i was having the conversation i kinda got it and then instantly goes away then at somebody. If somebody were to ask me in in this moment right now what's blockchain and bitcoin all about i'd go. It's complicated. The real answer is i really don't get it. No no. I'm not too proud to admit that so. Maybe maybe today through your reinvention story of your life and that's hilarious <hes> <hes> i'm going to get a better understanding of what the hell blockchain is all about. I'm going to change your life because i'm gonna explain it one-sentence sweet. Are you ready. I'm ready hit me. Blockchain is the internet of money that's it chain is the internet of money the think about our our internet today's the internet of information and blockchain money so instead of trading information sharing information. We're sharing money money being very widely defined as anything of value right. Money is not just u._s. Dollars money is also things requent flyer points in starbucks rewards points and things like that anything of value but that's the internet of money. I like honey and like think about you know being involved in the internet in the early days the internet of information which is when i started my career and it it was amazing. It was the greatest time to be alive because they're all these on starting. We're like building this new thing i wanted. The comedy sites on the web was so exciting and blockchain. Blockchain feels exactly like that except it's a new internet and internet of money and it's moving even faster because there's so much more excitement so much more money money flowing into this system. That's it in a nutshell that help it. Does it helps because now my mind is sort of swimming around and thinking king about like a nerd stuff. It's like okay a network share things and so. It's so much easier to think about it that way <hes> yes. I think that is a nice summary so let's get into the weeds. So when did this reinvention story start was in twenty seventeen is that when you made that twenty grand yes so in twenty seven team we saw the potential for this and as i said we pivoted the whole company into this yes and twenty seventeen was an at almost like a <hes> a mania <hes> in this space there was a craze as it was everywhere that word everywhere it was everywhere and i mean we're just buckets of money being thrown at any yes in detail title and so for the first year it was amazing and we were like this is the greatest decision ever but what happened was in two thousand eighteen. The government got involved lawyers got involved and everyone began to see that we don't really know how to think about this new money johnny because they're kind of like stocks but they're not stocks kinda like currencies but they're not currencies there really something new and because of that uncertainty <hes> everybody everybody stop almost overnight it was like from if you remember like when the dot com bubble burst in two thousand it was very much like that so we called it crypto crypto winter in twenty so that when a bitcoin the price was kind of like my bellwether sort of like thing i was going crazy right and then it's sort of like i don't know if it literally crashed but i know the value stopped climbing so what herman so what was the the was that sort of like the bellwether and or i should say is that when winter came you're absolutely right the price of bitcoin bill weather for this whole market and the price went from like twenty thousand at its highest down to five thousand okay so now he's so you might say okay. Well you bought in one hundred hundred twenty five five thousand. It's still amazing but now you had all these people who had bought in twenty thousand who now saw this just massive passive wealth just destroyed overnight and that is what started you know the slowdown and then it turned into a trickle and then and then the trickle froze and that turned into crypto winter so this period of twenty eighteen in the book i i have i have the rise is is part. One in the the fall is part two and this was the fall where these were extremely dark days and they were incredibly difficult in the process of reinvention. I believe is one in which the highs are really high and the lows are really low because you are operating in a new space. You're operating operating in a new world and that's what we found was. This new world was dark and scary and uncertain nobody will there was no playbook. We were inventing everything wild west right. It was absolutely like the wild west frontier because like everybody involved and when i when i say everybody i mean literally everybody everybody that is involved in any sort of secure transaction so think about that. I'm talking to the audience how title company right that every every little person that is in your wallet when you buy your house is interested in and secure transactions and they kind of like it the way it is right so that's just an example of one industry tree that is interested in like yes. We want to know about it but we also don't want to stop making money all right so yes. Yes that's right. They don't need to reinvent themselves right and and you're absolutely right. It's banks. Financial services company is real estate. It realistic government its identity companies. It's like your equity facts. Yes bureaus. It's anybody that has secret <unk>. Secure transactions is you're saying that's what we mean by the internet of money and this is a disruptive technology which means it is going to require them to radically rethink their businesses right. That's what we were all so excited about in two thousand seventeen but then in twenty eighteen it was like reality sets real like okay so what was our how how was it sort of like some big bank or some big government agencies sort of like laying down some sort of law aw what what was the what was the thing that brought on that that cool down to the to the contrary. I believe that it was <hes> lawyers. Lawyers getting involved okay all right. All these companies were now launching their own coins are alternatives to bitcoin so this became a very popular way of raising money as you would start a new companies ran this new crypto currency people can buy my cryptocurrency and essentially get sort of like a piece of the the value of my company will then the lawyer started getting involved and saying wait a minute like that looks like a stock which means it's like under this set of laws we have in the late then uh-huh regulation became a question and what the lawyers will always advise. You is be conservative be timid. Don't take take. Maybe a lot of money for my partially right right. He didn't know any more about blockchain than anyone else but to make money yes huge yeah and so i think because of that again that that that torrent of money began to slow down <hes> and then you know that combined with the price of bitcoin dropping made this this really difficult period okay all right gotcha all right now. We're we're at the beginning of winter. I suppose where we're midway through. Winter and people are emaciated associated lawing all right. You're on your warmth jeff. Yes you're eating the horses robbins. Robin's minstrels are nervous. Thank you for getting that n._s. Down down with your your reference okay so so then slowly for those of us who endure and this is the story of reinvention is when we endure when we <hes> really just have that unshakeable self confidence and we soldier on and we learn new ways of working in the world and we you know much of the book is just my personal journey and i really look at it as more like less of a technological logical book is more like a spiritual book of light. Here's how to reinvent yourself out to make it through these very difficult transitions of of life <hes> encountered the mind hacks or the the affirmations the sort of self talk that i use to make it through to get to the other side and then <hes> now today in twenty nine t call cryptos spring blockchain is gone mainstream. You might have heard facebook is launching its own crypto currency and we are in a new era at this point where blockchain is finally really becoming <hes> a real industry and those of us who who lasted who survived. We're we're becoming the leaders of this new world and that's just enormously satisfying so let's get into like how how how the so you went through this really funny store..

What's the History (and Future) of Toilets?
"Consider the flush toilet. It's the fascinating device. If you think about it. This giant porcelain chairs installed into every modern American bathroom using gallons of precious drinking water everyday to whisk your urine feces into oblivion better known as the municipal wastewater treatment plant nearest you every time you flush, but have you ever considered? What else we could be doing with our poop in pee? You probably don't really want to think about it. And neither does pretty much anybody else, which is why the flush toilet we twenty-first-century century. Humans us hasn't changed much since it was first patented in seventeen seventy five by Scottish watchmaker named Alexander coming Cummings. Toilet was a slightly altered version of the commode designed for Queen. Elizabeth the first by her godson, sir. John Harrington in fifteen ninety two Cummings had an s shaped pipe to trap, bad odors, while Harrington's had not, of course, self flushing. Toilets heated seats in those vacuum potties like you see on airplanes in tour buses came later. But. Our one and done attitude towards commode innovation probably comes from the fact that we simply don't want to think about poop that much. We spoke with DNA. Mcdonagh a professor of industrial design in the Beckman institute of advanced science and technology at the university of Illinois at our banish campaign. She said within the American culture, there's still resistance and reluctance to discuss body waste the toilet has remained relatively unexplored. I think because we're failing to realize that to quote, a British saying where there is muck. There's brass we are failing to see the potential opportunity are modest toilet is offering us because the notion of immersing yourself in such a product because all feel so uncomfortable. But going to the bathroom isn't something. We've always been squeamish about long ago. It was just another experience and opportunity for relaxation. And hanging out the ancient Romans used toilet time as a time to catch up with their friends in the year three hundred and fifteen BC Rome had one hundred and forty four bustling public toilets lined with stone benches with keyhole shaped cutouts situated, all along them where people would sit together and do their business, and maybe some gossiping to later in medieval England, you could be walking down the street and someone might throw the contents of their chamber pot out the window onto you. They might say sorry about it. But it would kind of be on you for walking too close to their house. Fancier medieval, people used Garda robe a little closet. Stuck onto the side of a castle with a hole in the floor that emptied into a moat or cesspit clothes were also kept in the Garda row. But because it was thought stench of human waste would keep the fleas moths out of the garments public Garda roads in London empty directly into the Thames, which was an unbelievably poor public health. With move as the population of Europe grew over the course of the eighteen hundreds up to one hundred people would share the same public garter robe and the waste just washed into the rivers tainting, the drinking water supply, which explains why so many outbreaks of cholera typhoid and other waterborne diseases bedeviled nineteenth century Europeans, resulting in more than half the working class population dying for the age of five it was a mess. As a result of a particularly hot summer in London in eighteen Fifty-eight when these smell of rotting sewage bay living in the city completely unbearable Parliament Commission to the construction of the London sewer, which was finished in eighteen sixty five deaths resulting from waterborne diseases plummeted and cities all over the world. Followed suit and constructed their own sanitary sewers the toilet patented by coming eventually became standard in houses and wealthy countries. All over the world along with slight variations patented by others like Thomas, crapper. Yes, that's his real name whose contributions to the overall design of the toilet were minimal. But whose legacy endures because he made sure his name was visible on. All of his products. And hey, it's great that fewer people are dying due to poor sanitation in these places anymore. But the toilet is due for an upgrade. So what do we need? Our new toilets to do. Mcdonagh said toilets offer a relatively unexplored territory that offers significant potential in respect to healthy living and healthy aging as individuals are taking more responsibility for their health. Eating habits and wellbeing. The bathroom offers a somewhat blank canvas for us to integrate intuitive technology to support the individual imagine a toilet that could tell you. How hydrated you were whether you are deficient in particular vitamins or new of blood in your stools and changes in your hormones. We literally flush all that information away each day in the form of waste matter. So we could find out a lot about our own health from our toilets, but according to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which launched their reinvent the toilet challenge. Back in twenty eleven the next generation of toilets will also be able to kill pathogens compost human waste and keep up with the fast urbanization of the twenty first century. And all that without sewer, infrastructure electricity or a water source. They might even be able to minor waste for valuable elements like phosphorus nitrogen and potassium and separate solid and liquid waste in order to use them to make things like building supplies. But we'll the new toilets. Look very much different from the one in your bathroom now or the one, sir. John Harrington made for Queen Elizabeth in the sixteenth century, probably not much unless you've got any bright
The Predator movie review
"We got a new category, predator here is the brasa predator Rostom on. So, yeah. We just watched the predator. It's stuck on my hat. It is. There? Yeah, we just wash it and I think we both kinda liked it. I think I liked it more than you did. Right. But I think we both raised a pretty high. Yeah, we did. I, I'm, I'm putting up my number three as my third favorite predator movie. What about so I put her to. I'm gonna put it right back to it, just it just ekes out over the second one predator to mostly because the action sequences and any movie were Gabe. UC dies. I kinda downgrade, you can't kill the man, Gary abusing, even then even before the movie that shows some previews and they talked about the second with the way Gary UC died had to be epic. Yeah, yeah. They were shown ended previews that was kind of like you pointed out. You've got cut in half, but we're talking. Fell down ever feel. Yeah, he's uttering see, I place it second, and you put just blow that third. I mean, I honestly came in thinking this movie was going to be, I would have probably been walking out, but I, I liked it. It was pretty good all the pre all the previews and the talk. I was expecting it to be bad and. Shane black. I don't know a lot of his work anyway, so I was kinda kinda if you on that. I didn't see a lot of the action sequences in the previews. So I think the action sequences really helped a lot to elevate it in my mind. Yeah. I know you also talked about some of the humor in it. Kind of didn't Dan deferred you little bit, or what did you think about some of the humor parts? There was more humor than normal in the first one had some humor into two, but it was more kind of almost dark humor, but it was. It was a little different. You know, we had key in it, so it's going to be a little humor. You got, it's like, you can't have. He's got to be the smart ass or he's got us say something funny. He can't. You can't not. It wasn't enough to make the movie bad for me, but it was close. It was borderline too much. I mean, we're starting at the yellow peaks on the humor part you you rated your third one, second one. Sorry, I got my third one. Let's the some people. And we're here with what's your name, Sir? John, just we just watched the predator. What'd you think spreading the good? I love. I mean, what did you think about the what? What did you think about the action sequences? I mean, where would you? Where would you rank this among the all the predator movies that are out there. I don't know if I can really say it's better than you know the original predator with Arnold, but in definitely ranks up there 'cause I put it, I put his second. I jumped way up to second. And any favorite part of the movies every what's your favorite part of this movie? Without giving any spoilers just, you know. The, I guess the big surprise, you know. All right. I know so many good parts. It's easy to stop. I was so surprised watching. This will be. I be honest, I thought I thought I was going to be walking out of this movie. I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I did. So we were talking about on the way out of the theater and I was like, wow, it's way better than I thought. Yeah, I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I was as you know, mo- most sequels tend to kind of go little downhill and this one, honestly, just about it all the way back. Did you notice they kept referencing the first two movies? I honestly, I was thinking that was expecting Arnold or Donald Donald Glover, Donald governor Daniels, Danny, Danny Glover. Sorry, Donald was Landau. I was expecting cameo from there, but never came out, but it's still pretty good. Right? Yeah, I was expecting Arnold because you know it's new predator movie, but we, we did get a beauty. We did. We did. We did play actually played the guy son keys, so. So you gave it thumbs up liked it to them. Thanks man. Right. Thank you.
"sir john" Discussed on Ideas
"Them. I'm Paul Kennedy and you're listening to ideas and to the second episode of two part series. We're calling the trial of, Sir, John McDonald. It was recorded in partnership with Queen's University in front of a live audience at the Isabel baiters center for the performing arts in Kingston, presiding is former supreme court Justice, the right honorable, Ian Binnie, Franken. Kerio is defense counsel and gene tie who happens to be Louis reels, great. Grand niece is serving as prosecuting attorney in charging, sir. Johnny McDonald with crimes against humanity. Franken Berio continues his defense by pointing out that the prime minister was under constant criticism from the liberals and others who were completely opposed to any kind of food aid programme earlier in the trial MS tie. Read a quote to you from. Hansard in which the prime minister said. The aim was to deliberately keep rations small quote until the Indians are on the verge of starvation out of context. This is a shocking statement, but consider what preceded it a constant needling from the liberals that by his generosity, sir, Johnny McDonald had turned the indigenous people into welfare bums. David mills the liberal critic who went onto become a Justice, Precourt of Canada said to McDonald, it is pretty evident that the Indians have become pensioners upon the public treasury that were called upon to feed them to clothe 'em and they're doing little or nothing for themselves. Now, I believe that a barbarous population, like the Indians may very easily be made wholly dependent upon the government. I felt satisfied that was the danger in dealing with the Indian population, the northwest, and I think that to the extent to which they've been provided for. During the past two or three years under this prime minister has produced such a condition of things that it will be difficult to induce the Indians to devote themselves to industrial pursuits to which, Sir. John replies, when the Indians are starving, they have been helped, but they have been reduced to one half and one quarter rations. But when they fall into a state of destitution, we cannot allow them to die for want of food read in context that does not sound like someone with a genocidal goal. The intention of the government in hindsight, bound to fail was to take hunters with nomadic backgrounds and turn them into stay at home. Farmers, unrealistic. I admit professor duty, he'll describes the relief program. We will help you grow food. We will help educate you. Those were parts of the deal. The Indian people wanted it. They wanted education. They want to training in agriculture, the government of Canada delivered on that. Now we can quibble that we could argue that the progress programme delivery, the execution was not perhaps as good as it should have been. We complain about government all the time to this day, and there's no doubt that government could have learned faster, but we cannot we cannot content otherwise that the government under John McDonald did not respond. It responded organizationally, it responded with leadership. It responded with money, three years later, Sir. John spoke again in the house of Commons and he described the policy towards indigenous people on June ten eighteen eighty five to parliament. It is simply this to observe good faith towards Indians to treat them kindly and to treat them firmly if that has been a full at all in the administration, it is that we have been rather over indulgent to the Indians, but what can we do? We kind of as Christians and as men with hearts in our bosoms allow the vagabond Indian the Popa Indian to die before us. Well, what are we to do with these Indians? The reserves they now hold a given them by treaty. They are their property. We cannot deprive them of those reserves without another treaty. If it is happened that after those reserves have been established near a railway or another railway comes near them or white settlement comes inconveniently near them. Why the railway complains, of course, that the Indians haunt the stations. We cannot help that they live on their own property. They are free men and we cannot help that we cannot drive them back at the point of a ban. It. Patronizing no-doubt racist note, but genocidal hardly you're under. That's the case for the defense.
