"Or what have you. And when we get into that super user that admin level type thinking we can look down on that and realized that. That's what's behind what we're thinking. It might not even be conscious but then we can say wait a minute. I don't necessarily need that job. Or i could get that job by doing something or do this. Set of skills And we can start to recruit out that problem. Thought that really is holding us back in a very real way because it's creating our reality and we can start to replace it with better programming better thoughts that are going to move our life into a better direction.

"And it saying that there are parts of me. that know. What's best for me than than i do. Consciously myself so how do you know if you're successful Well this one would be a much more subjective. But i i can tell you that just subjectively speaking Things have really open up in in in new and incredibly exciting ways. Since i've been doing this and one of the things is for example I'm very involved. My my last two books that i wrote are all about new Blockchain based economy that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies all these And i've i've really become something of an expert in that space. Well that's something. I never could have predicted when i was writing. Mind hacking it's just a completely different direction but it's been incredibly personally and professionally satisfying. I think that came out of doing this in large part so i understand correctly you started out as like a prankster. I'm i'm a humor writer. Originally so a comedy writer. We have one of the first comedy sites on the web called saag dot com and and and out of that then Came the first story in the book. Actually which is how. I got involved with mind hacking and the short version of that story is I was doing a big prank at the time. On a barack obama who had just received the nomination as the democratic presidential candidate and The secret service showed up on my doorstep and let me just say heather when the secret service shows up. It's it's never a good thing you don't want them at your house and i saw after they had left the house. That the The drinking and drugging i had been doing were leading me into such a dangerous path And this was kind of a the manifestation of that coming home to roost. And i realized i need to make some big changes so i threw away all of the alcohol and the house. That night was one of the most difficult things i've ever done. And i found throwing the bottles in the trash was so hard for me that the only way i could get through. It was by focusing on the muscle movement. It was the muscle memory of taking these bottles and throwing this in this dumpster behind the grocery store. And so that was kinda my first mind hack was. I realized like if i think about the long term repercussions of never drinking again. I will never be able to do this tonight. But if i just focus on that muscle movement. I'll be able to do just this moment. And through that and many many other mind hacks that i developed afterward i was able to happily stay sober and been i've been sober ever since. Wow so from prankster. To an expert in in mind hacking you also have a media company. Yes andrew blockchain expert. Yes most people would not imagine that you could put all of those titles on the same person also sir. Can you just start with actually that. How how did you get your name. Yeah i'll tell you the The quick version so in my first book it was a book of pranks called prank. The monkey on the idea was i was going to go. After the largest targets i could find In the world. So i went after all these celebrities. I went after the. Us senate the united nations. And the queen of england. So i said to myself Wouldn't it be great to prank. The queen so i wrote the queen a letter and i said your majesty I would like to be knighted. Because i just thought sir john hargrave had such a cool ring to it. Doesn't it classic. Indeed so i i wrote her and i got a letter back from buckingham palace and it says well..

"And he had a little notebook that he carried around with his virtues the virtues that he wanted to sort of help blossom in his life and every day. I'm like a little scorecard he would rate himself on how he did With each of these virtues and then many years later. I heard about These this technique of of written affirmations And whether it works or not. I decided to to try for myself so many years. I've been experimenting with. This sense are with this experiment of like trying to write down My goal for the year. I read it down. Fifteen times a day And then measuring at the end of the year was i actually able to achieve the goal to the affirmation Come come come. True in some way are not have about an eighty five percent success rate. I would say on the written affirmations. I do this every day. i've got my little. I use a little mole skin notebook. I've got it right here This is my current one. I'll show it to you. Just did it this morning. My current one is. I am living my highest good there. It is so. I ride fifty times a day. I'm living my highest good and I think it works for a couple of reasons. One is I think that we have a a reminder. It's like a constant reminder because too many of us we we set goals and then we forget that we set them right and and life moves on and we get distracted so by doing this it locks it in In a way that's very profound because you using your muscles to do not just thinking you're you're putting it into this physical reality and that's the second thing is is you're making it real by writing it down again again it's coming out of your head into som- like manifestation of physical reality right here and then finally you create these habit grooves in the brain so you know there's a lot of talk in neuroscience about our brand sort of lock into the way that we've habitually thought and what you're doing is kind of creating new groups we talk about like a sled going down the hill and how sleds will kind of lock into a sledded track that other people have cut..

"There was a part that it was connected to didn't have quite the right fit. And if you leave it at that you might not actually get to the root of the problem but then you ask why again. Well why was because we had to use off the shelf parts instead of making something custom. Why did we do that. Because we had to rush production in order to meet our first quarter numbers. And why would we do that. Because our production cycles and sales cycles are not aligned. So by doing that we get to this sort of root cause analysis that can help us really tracked down the true source of the problem and the same goes with our minds if we look not just at the first order effects or just at you know i feel embarrassed or i feel angry at him or I feel ashamed of what i just did. But we start to ask why and then why then why then why again we can get in the habit of getting down to what you might call. The core programming of what's causing that negative thought loop and so by doing that. We can really Root out the indu- the debugging at its source and that we can reprogram that piece which will have much higher first second third fourth and fifth order affects down the road. And you can see how this'll be very easily applied. Yes and manufacturing line but also in a family system at at work at school so in in lots of different places where you would want to get to that root cause of course any sort of complex system or process That root cause analysis going to get you much further than just that immediate problem. Can you walk us through the worst case that the worst thing that can happen exercise would you do that. Yes so this is another way of dealing with those uncomfortable feelings. We just talked about the five wise and getting to the root of a bit. Another thing we can do is when we have those fears or those anxieties often. they're kind of nameless dread. I hear that a lot especially these days. There's a lot of things that are causing anxiety. But if we can try to articulate what is the worst that could happen in other words. What is the worst case scenario. That's brewing in my mind. Even it's not conscious at this point so many people for example right now are afraid of leaving the house. but what's the worst case scenario..

"To do it. You forget to do it. In other words you get lost in the mind and what we're trying to do is develop this awareness of sort of this level of meta cognition. We're trying to get on top of the mind to look down to look at the source code or the programming. That's going on and to do that. We have to continually exercise that sort of meta function of getting out above it and asking. What was my mind just thinking so. It's deceptively difficult this this exercise and we recommend trying it for the rest of the day. After you've listened to this podcast like try it and then at the end of the day. See if you can remember to count. How many times you were able to successfully remind yourself what to ask. What was my mind. Just thinking so. It sounds like a mindfulness practice. And these it meditation these traditions for millennia. They've been in Different societies across the planet. How is your approach different or similar to some of those traditions. It definitely comes out of those traditions doubt. But what's different here is that we put it. Within the framework of technology we put it within the framework of computers and apps. And iphones and all of these gadgets that were also used to using every day and we also make it a lot more fun because we game a fi so all of the exercises in the book basically ways of sort of A games that you can play. Call them mind games in the book to help you develop the awareness and help you develop the debugging techniques and then the reprogramming techniques in order to think better and so how do those things changing your mindset. How does that impact the physical body. What's the physiology. It's what's going on there Well actually i'm four years old. Heather so I have. I have done a great job. I think maintaining my youthful appearance I think that the mind body connection is is well documented..

"Get to some of that in just a minute, Sir John Lynch News. But, Jake, you said you were up in the in the great Northwest to get readyto. Jump on the links you and Seattle man, What's going on? Yeah, I'm up in a little caldo Lalla just north of Tacoma. Beautiful out years. Sunrise Like five in the morning. Going to place a call from some angle. Nothing better golf above and God, I hope you're walking a thin due to hope they're not too open about jumping on a card. Did you get there You go there. You're going to catch any of the Giants game last night up in Seattle. Hell of a ball game Giants from the highlights. Okay, so I normally Your ear to the ground with the 40 Niners, But what you think about this giant steam right now, Manager here it can be our and we're all over this stuff with the giant seemed like they may have a couple of weapons and guys like Mike, Extreme Ski, and don Solano do. Yet so funny. I remember last year. I mean, it might turn out to be the case this year, too, but it's like they can seem like they actually some guys, you're gonna have devolved fairly consistently right now. Uh, I mean, consistently is a strong word for this team. But you know, and they don't really know what they're doing. Starting pitching wise, you know, last year they had this beard rotation that somehow just worked, and it might have a lot of run starting pitching staff. Now it's like You do have a gift? One starter. You know you go, You know, even five innings and I know it's early and they're trying to wrap them all up. But you can't really point to a single guy. You go. Yeah, That's our guy. You know, it should be Johnny Cueto, but clearly he's not there. So you know, the weirdness of this season is really intriguing where it's like, really anything could happen. You know you've got enough guys. You can hit the ball like I think it was always feared. The Donovan Solano never really got props. You can clearly see the ball with you so You know, it's interesting. There's want to count them out. They don't have the pieces, at least from pitching perspective to, you know, make a playoff run, but they're at least I think I have some really entertaining James in this very weird, Yeah, and sort of like entertaining and not so entertaining all in either one Siri's or in one ball game like it would have been really easy to just watch them kind of roll over yesterday, even when Alex Dickerson hits the homerun to kind of pull him closer. You're still sort of thinking. Yeah, You're gonna need four more runs to win this thing and I don't know if they have it in them. Now. The other side of this is the bullpen while Tyler Anderson walked a couple yesterday back to back pickoffs. My uncle just sent me a text, and I don't think I've ever seen that before. The bullpen doesn't look like it's all that bad right now. Right, right And that And the funny thing is, it's going to be like Oh, on all year. You know they're gonna have their going to get at least I don't know. Within arm's supposed to warm up. They don't have a lot of time. For this ramp of that supposedly gonna happen where? You know you let the starters go longer and longer, So it's going to be all on these bullpen guys, You know, maybe those guys could burned out a little bit. It's hard to tell us that your abbreviated season that I don't really know what to make of it, And I don't know that you know, for all the confidence that manager's sort of have and and say they have about their guys. I don't know that they're all that competent and in what they're going to get on a consistent basis, So I think you're going to get guys you know, called up with all these weird roster moves where the bullpen looks steady, but I think you're going to see some guy you've never heard of which most of the team any way I hope I get some guys I have heard of. I hope it's It's guys like Joey Barton, Elliot Ramos and Luciano because the guys that I've heard of it. Yeah, but I don't want to see a little bit of the voice. You hear Jake Hutchinson at much Diesel on Twitter, he discovered the 40 Niners for candy. Come, and we should make a hit on a little bit of that. And they were all over that generally, but we got word yesterday. Well, I guess. Two days ago, John Lynch came on. They can be our morning show with Murph and Mac, and they'd ask him about a hole a whole slew of things but sort of end of the conversation, talking about himself saying, Hey, Kyle Shanahan got himself a deal. Got a new contract and probably important being that his salary was gonna match up with guys like Zack Taylor. The Cincinnati Bengals had a state of the current rate, but we hadn't heard anything from John Lynch and then the pandemic ants. So hey, had sort of been, I don't know, not sidestepping. But he said, you know, we were in conversations and we should have some good news. And then yesterday we hear from Adam Schefter that John Lynch has gotten a new deal that should keep him in 40 Niner red and gold through 2020 for their sand. What you know about this? Yeah, that guy's he's probably going to run for office one day with the way he can, You know, sort of a vague answers and give you the information when he feels like it. It's so funny, but no ease. It was it was gonna happen is a matter of time. You know, they weren't just going to let that linger and have and you know, despite the fact that he had three years left, it would have been almost like a lamed out sort of thing. They had extended child for six years left him on a three year deal. I just would have rubbed everyone the wrong way on DH. And while it is still slightly odd, that was five years compared to Kyle, six doesn't really surprise me. He strikes me as the guy who he's not going to stick around forever. I think he said that you know, at some point he's gonna move on to something you know bigger. Maybe he does get into commentary. He did want to do that. You know, if he ever gets out of this will probably go for one of the top, you know, broadcasting jobs available, so I mean, there will offer him whatever he wants. You know what I mean? So He's a guy where you know he could quit doing this tomorrow and he'd have 20 job offers. You know, on the table before he, you know, even signed his letter of resignation, so You know, he's the guy that's going to do whatever he wants. And so the fact that it's one year less than Kyle doesn't really surprise me. But it was something that they were gonna have to get done before the year's done and Now they just kind of sort of kiddo, which is much much easier said than done, Right right. Could be a huge, huge payday coming for George Tuttle. Just some of the moves If you run down with John Lynch is done, of course. Drafted Kittle Traded for Jimmy G signs. Richard Sherman trades for Dee Ford drafts Nick Bosa Draft Depot Samuel then even bringing in Trent Williams in this his last draft here, making the move to go get him was big One Morgan for you, Jake before we let you go so news yesterday out of Detroit that the Lions had five players placed on the cove. Seen sort of injury list of the designation of covert 19 for players and some bigger name guys, Kenny Golladay. And and TJ Hawkinson Golladay, a Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Lions. I saw some notes that the NFL is still looking for kind of what protocols to follow. If there is an outbreak, and obviously they're going to be in the same model that Major league Baseball is, they're not playing in a bubble. So what do you know?.
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.

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. The next time coaching required. Thanks for listening and have a great
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.

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..

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.
