"It. let's do it. It's the mantra that let richard shakeup the state airline industry. And it's not the only industry virgin set out disrupt soft drinks. Trains even space travel. Not every venture worked. But richard went all in on each. If he could succeed he did. And you can't help but marvel at his biased action his willingness task what if and then follow those fanciful thoughts with bold and decisive steps forward.

"Was going on like a lot of young people thought. It was a travesty of justice Horrendous horrendous horrendous mistake and so i decided actually to start a magazine to campaign against it richard was only fourteen when he launched what he called student. Magazine like most schoolwise. He lacked in office. And because this was the late sixties. He didn't have his own phone which he needed to sell. Advertising and conduct interviews. He found his solution in a classic british on a red telephone booth or as they say telephone box but the amount of time he spent in his three by three foot office became a problem. I saw on the magazine from the school. phone books. and that fifteen. The headmaster said to me. I either had to stay at school and do my school work or leave school and do the magazine and so i said goodbye to him and the magazine became quite successful. I mean we sold about one hundred thousand copies an issue not every fifteen year old would have the bravo to start a business much less abandoned school to do so. And i really wouldn't recommend it. But what i want you. To notice is the underlying. Mindset the unstoppable. Buys to action. Have an idea act. An idea never looked back and he didn't. The magazine was the launch pad pursue richards. Next and more famous i venture virgin records. The spark came as it. So often does with richard from an offhand comment. One day somebody said to me. Music is a horrendously expensive. And why don't you consider starting a music company and so we started virgin records. It should probably go without saying. But i'll say it anyway. This was in the days before digital music. The walkman was almost a decade away. Cds were a futuristic gleam on the horizon. Vinyl was king. Who was only one problem for sir. Richard's fledgling record store but it was a pretty big one. We didn't have any records but once the orders came in we then went and bought them from record shops and try to get a discount and then handed leaflets outside concerts. And because we didn't buy the records upfront we got the cash flow to fund it in that way and virgin records was born. That's right. Richard took the orders. And the money before you had to stock or even knew if he'd be able to get into the price he was offering customers. There are a few things. I love about the story. The audacity of starting a record store without any records is one of them. But i also love that. Their lack of cash flow lead directly to their advantage. Richard and his team had no choice but to negotiate those steep discounts. Because they had already made the sales richard fast-growing reputation as someone who did things differently and a quick cavalier. Manner was attractive to lots of people not least of all musicians. Young artists came to me with tape and he was fifteen years old himself. And i found the tape hauntingly beautiful. We didn't have a record company so we went to the eight record companies to try to get somebody to put it out. None of them would put it out. Here it comes. Another moment when richard decides to go all in on a daring notion so we decided to start a record. Company and chew bells was the name of the alban. Mike oldfield was the hottest and it's millions of copies even if the name doesn't ring any bells tubular or otherwise. You would very likely recognize the music. The album's opening track was used as a theme for the movie. The extra assist and on the back of that we were able to build the largest independent record company in the world and ultimately designed people at the rolling stones and janet jackson and genesis. Peter gabriel and the sex pistols and so on and so on so it was a lot of fun by the mid eighties sir. Richard's biased action had seen him launch film distribution company. A video game publisher and most famously. An airline fatty five years ago when we started the big carriers were dreadful. You're lucky if you had a lot of chicken dent in your lap and there was no entertainment and very very surly surly crew generally and on one of those flights coming to the virgin islands. I got bumped which is typical thing that airlines did in those days. And so i had to play in filled it up with all the people who'd been bumped and kuldip virgin airlines is a joke however the joke very quickly had richard ask himself seriously the question. What if why not and we arrived in the b. b. I and joined that flight. Just thought ellen's do bump people. Maybe i should bring up boeing the next day which i did asked if they had it he secondhand seven point seven for sale turns out they did and the real virgin airlines was born sir. Richard uttered the five words. He'd repeat for the rest of his career words. That became the title of one of his three autobiographies. Or it's worth emulating even if you don't quite want to repeat them screw it. Let's do it Screw.

"Catalog of the entire sixty to ninety minute interviews with read their available only two masters of scale members. So here's day one of the mindset of scale. The theme of the day is asked what. Why not with. Sir richard branson. Let's listen welcomed the day one for the of scale our first course in the masters of scale app. I know how each minute matters for an entrepreneur and you probably have a tendency to multitask but take a moment right now to turn off slack closure email and arrive for these ten minutes. It will be worth your time whether you entrepreneur starting something from scratch on your own an entrepreneur who built something daring inside established organization or an executive leading at scale. Your single greatest. Success factor isn't knowledge expertise or network. It your mindset so you have to think in ways that are often the exact opposite of what you learn in school. No one is born with all of the entrepreneurial mindsets you may be comfortable in chaos but less confident and making quick decisions. You may have a natural instinct for escaping competition but less certainty about building company culture. The good news is that all of these mindsets can be cultivated. And that's what this course is about each day will tackle a different essential mindset and the most fundamental mindset. You need is a bias for action. It's not enough to have good ideas. You have to be ready to act on them to show you what i mean. I wanna share a story from sir. Richard branson richard is known for his death defying launch monroe leaps in the new markets and industries. Virgin records for genera lines and virgin galactic are just a few he embodies the entrepreneurial biased action will start the story in the mid nineteen sixties. Richard was in high school and about to act on his very first venture. The vietnamese war was going on like a lot of young people thought. It was a travesty of justice Horrendous horrendous horrendous mistake and so i decided actually.

"In which i can talk to them and which i'm getting the most useful things in this and so could network and by the way not all learnings like everyone tends to learning how to look. How do i build an machine. Or how do i hire a salesforce and those are important but also a lot of key. Learnings are what not to do because their heart of what defines someone who has learned stuff. Is it go well. Actually in fact these landmines. These are the things that looks like good ideas but are bad ideas and ultimately don't work out or cut the classic thing than amateurs smart amateurs caught in or these are the things that could look like an interesting bold risky idea. But it's much harder than you think. A lot of learnings are that seems like a good idea but they are allies. Very bad on it. That's a great point. Learning is not only about learning what to do. But what not to do. So how do you take this. Cautionary idea and translated into scaling. Sometimes when people think about scaling they think they have to do everything. When i went into business my theory was look this big brain. I can manage a whole bunch of complexity in my head and so i'm going to have a competitive differentiation from all the other people around me because i'm capable of having this very big complicated picture in my head and actually in fact that's not how business and business strategy nor by the way military works. It's the simplest plan that wins. It's the simplest plan that creates a lot of value. And so a lot of what. You're trying to do not say well look. All five of those are great ideas. We should do them. The answer is could we get away with doing one of them very well and this is why the white people talk about focus is in doing that. One thing very well and making that work. Is that the thing that we should really do from here. And is that the way we should plan now by the way that you get this. Classic once companies get big is say like example. You know there are people who say all that microsoft should do is windows and office. Let's say well. Why are you doing being because being is only a loss leader to put pressure on google. And that's not how you're gonna make that much money while the answer is if microsoft had done being than they wouldn't have had a you're in a jury is the next computing platform in the cloud which puts microsoft in the running and the edge for that. And so that's part of reason why you have once you get big a number of things and why the whole thing of doing all. There's only one thing isn't actually in fact once you're there is an accident in fact the right strategy now when you're a small company and you say we have five ideas. Doing one is much better than doing five and even though you might do want an experiment a little bit with one. The discipline is to play that one out and then correct. If it's not the right one we'll be back in a moment after word from our exclusive partner capital one business data and so united time. I tame okay. What does the data say. We're back with zoology. Bryant co founder of nightline pediatrics. She's been telling us how they were able to see patients from the very start of the pandemic thanks to an early investment in telemedicine and that gave them surprising data during the pandemic we really expanded our telemedicine reach throughout the whole state of texas and where we saw. The biggest pickup was in areas like waco like beaumont those are areas that we hadn't considered before the data towards the wadi where she could build new clinics. It also helped to rethink what those new clinics might look like. You can do the visit. Virtually but if they need a naval flop they have to come somewhere. I'm like okay. So maybe the clinics don't have to be as big maybe they can be expressed clinics like where instead of eight exam rooms. Therefore so is a perfect example of the way entrepreneurs are using last year's pivots to point the way to future growth says capital one businesses and cave one of the most inspiring things about business owners and learning about them and serving them. Is that you do see innovation at work every day. Do we really need the same size facility. We can create that. Same environment Perhaps it a smaller and more cost effective scale. The wadis also innovated by moving outside of her core footprint and realizing hey we can have customers all over the state and maybe even beyond in the future though. He's got new customers..

"Entrepreneurial mindset and the impact of democratizing entrepreneurship. So here we go. The first question starts at the beginning. How do you think about cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset as an investor and as a startup founder. Is it something you should seek out. The entrepreneurial mindset is throughout everything. That i do. It doesn't mean that everybody. I hire is an entrepreneur or interact with but like it's how you create the new how you shape the possible into the real. And i think that's pretty fundamental. The entrepreneurial mindset is not just entrepreneurs because it's not just the blanks leader paper. It's not just zero to be one one of the things that i look at that i learned from social at is actually think. There's three kind of games vera. V one v one to be one it and be one of the to all of these are forms of entrepreneurial mindset now probably goes in like oh my god jumping in the unknown because vizier v one v wanted to be to be wanting to be one one in those because if you wanna be one is most naturally thing and that's the thing that people tended most do because it has the most certainty of outcome and so forth but the other ones are fundamentally important because at some point you get to a local maximize. Your just doesn't work on the b. one b. One doesn't really work now. What i would say is in terms of working learning is you should always be learning right. This is a little bit like the glengarry glen. Ross always be closing but it's always be learning and you should be approaching every circumstance with. Is there something serious. I can learn here. So what happens if you drop the ball and stop moving forward. Are there key moments or milestones. When you think an entrepreneur should reset should double down on going back to learning. So one question is if you think oh. I'm actually in fact way off here right like i don't really have the right map about learning at the right rate by being an action and by doing the thing those kinds of things then you go get. I should go back to learning now. Entrepreneurs almost always tend to be learned by doing learn by getting into it. And it's actually that buys action is action back very good thing for entrepreneurs one of the things that people tend to overly by us on his learn learn learn learn learn learn learn learn. Learn before you do and actually it's you know. Learn to learn to learn to learn to learn to learn do is useful now. Sometimes you say well. Hey i'm gonna learn like there's something deep. Coding modern coating like artificial intelligence some aspects of business strategy or something else. I actually need to learn a stack before. I can get into the learn. Do mom and sometimes that's something in the field like for example. I'd say one of the things that you know was a very good piece of advice that i was given was learn how to ship commercial software even though the way the large company ship commercials offers different than small companies. Learn the components of that first before trying to go create a software company. Because then i'm not figuring out like okay. What is a pr. D- what is a minimum viable product. What is qa. look like what is the people doing these jobs together. Look like what is the way they coordinate like. I bet at least baseline may be improving a lot of maybe changing it a lot but i understand both what's baseline also understand what everyone coming into the picture with some experience will also experience as a common language a common method of play. A common theory of the game as a way of doing that. Now is you think about learning. Are there great examples of learners out their models of how people take in information. I think there are different kinds of learners. Not everyone learns the same way now. Obviously the classic way that people say it is. Some people are reading learners. Some people are audio learner. Some people are video learners and on but it's not just that some people are learners by first principles and what they're doing some people in learners by talking to other people. Some people are learners by studying. What other folks are doing. And so you should have that theory of you as an individual but utah also by the way. Have that theory of you as a group. Use a company because just not thinking about individuals is learning but as companies learning and has kind of increasing capabilities. Fitness functions is very important by. That's not necessarily big surprise because one of the things that happens as people get more. Systemized groups is post-mortems and wiki knowledge bases and other kinds of things that are in their silicate that a strong example of how facebook operates is facebook says we built a huge testing framework so that everybody can literally individual engineers can run tasks on features and things that they want to do in order to make stuff happen now part of the process. Is you have to document that. You've searched the knowledge base to see if anyone else's run the test before you do it so you're not just blindly running the same again so you can position your task against what has happened before or say. Oh i see it's already been done and that's an example of how not just individual earnings but group learning have playing together. How do you work networks into learning. What are the key things you look for in learning environments working networks in a learning is a function of kind of like okay. Who are the smart people out there and talk about what questions. Can i ask them what things can learn from in what they're doing..

"The masters of scale courses app and i encourage you to stay tuned all the way to the end because we'll be sharing with you a lesson from the courses app which includes a special appearance from sir richard branson that really brings it all together and a wrap up lesson from read that you won't want to miss now onto the special episode of masters of scale. You gotta have incredible talent. At every position there are fires burning out. You've such an idiot. Go back to paris. I have no idea what sorry mistake with. You have to time it right absolutely all ten years later but do we invaded iraq. This is masters scale. We'll start the show in a moment after award from exclusive brand partner capital one business The first thing you're going to see as a lot of colors a huge big well and a elephants spinning a ball on its nose and everything is children sized wadi bryant founder of nightline pediatrics chenab. Urgent care clinics in houston but this colorful waiting room and it's pint-sized furniture didn't see many patients during the pandemic thank goodness we already had telemedicine put in place. That was kind of our saving grace. Zouwad made the leap to telemedicine during previous crisis. A hurricane what really got us going with telemedicine was harvey in twenty seventeen if does hurricane if there is a winter freeze children's still get sick so even if they can't get to us physically we have to provide another way for them to get treatment. Is that kind of foresight to let night light. Whether the latest storm says an cave of capital one business one of the trends we see across business owners is an investment in continuous learning and continuous improvement. And so i think naturally when crisis hits that's an opportunity to think big think different because you have to once you start thinking big who's to say where it'll stop. We'll hear how telemedicine gives awadhi some big ideas of our own later in the show. It's all part of capital. One businesses look at entrepreneurs who are persevering with courage and innovation. I'm bob sathian former editor fast company founder of the flux group and host for this special bonus episode of masters of scale we believe the single greatest success factor for any scale leader isn't knowledge experience or network. It's your mindset optimism resilience curiosity and also things that are less obvious counter intuitive mindset's like letting fires burn and occasionally doing things that don't scale and no one not even read is born with all the entrepreneurial mindsets you may be comfortable in chaos but.

"Back. And before we move on. I need to clear something up. President biden loss texas by six hundred thirty thousand votes. You would think if people were going to cheat. He would have won. I'm just saying yesterday. President biden's set out to boost the low vaccination rate amongst teens with an instagram post. Asking young people to help him get out the message. One of the biggest pop stars on the planet right now. Olivia rodrigo entered the and. She's at the white house right now. Sarah is a livia a good spokesperson for this push. I absolutely think so. You wanna come to young people where they're at and right now. This is tapping into the pulse of what's going on. Among the younger ones among us but like obama the digital campaign he did bernie sanders when he interviewed cardi b. This is about kind of tapping into their ether. Olivia rodriguez combined twenty eight million followers and her all eleven songs from her recent album sour charted in the hot one hundred top thirty. This girl you can't be in a car or listen to a radio without hearing her song. So i just think this was a brilliant move by the white house to tap into her influence. Megan are you a fan of bolivia's she. There might be a bit of a generation gap for folks but because a lot of people weren't familiar with but you know who she was. And do you think she's a good spokesperson. I love her. she's so good. I just hope that something about this. Vaccination campaign takes the lyrics from her song. Good for you because the lyrics are good for you. You'll look happy and healthy. And i just hope they somehow combine that earworm song for the vaccine rollout. It'd be funny and she's wildly talented and all her songs are like amazing. And she's just a total rising star. There's nothing unusual about this. I mean you know richard. Nixon met elvis. People use people from pop culture to try and You know get expand you know your your whatever whatever it is that you need and you want going out. And seeing reason why celebrities go out and stumped for politicians. I know you've done that with different politicians from time to time. You just want to get people excited and want to get people interested in bringing out. Somebody that everybody loves is always a good idea to do that. Yeah never a bad idea anna. Will this kind of targeted outreach. Work in your opinion what this is just one that they're doing. they're doing all sorts of outreach. At the white house. I did an instagram. Live with dr foul. She last week they're going for people in the communities are going for preachers or going for local. Doctors are going for the celebrities. And i think this all out approach is what we need right now when we see that so many states over forty states are trending in the wrong direction when it comes to cove it and it's such a stark contrast with what's happening in my state for example where i am so disappointed to see rhonda scientists governor rhonda santa's who worked in cooperation with biden and was bipartisan or nonpartisan in the surf. Side collapse reaction. He is selling political. Swag he is selling. He's merchandising with the suffering of the people who've died with the pandemic don't be cute. Don't sell beer cruces merch exploiting an profiting off the pandemic and buying into the signs denying while your state has increased exponentially and one week. It's called the cases. That's just irresponsible and shameful. And i'm very very disappointed in him. Wow sunny d. Do you think influencers and teen celebs the best messengers here to pass the information to young people. Honestly what be. I'm still so floored at don't fao g. My florida. I mean cove is everyone knows. Hit our family particularly hard with the death of both of my husband's parents. And i cannot believe that you would have the governor of florida encouraging people not to get vaccinated. That is despicable. It's disgusting. But i will say this you know when you look at the numbers for teens. You have sixteen only thirty seven point. One percent of sixteen to seventeen year olds have been vaccinated only twenty four point. Nine percent of twelve to fifteen year olds have been vaccinated. Eighteen to twenty four only forty one point six percent fully vaccinated. So the message has to get out and whoever is the right messenger. Let's do it. i like that. You've heard less mega work. We'll be right back. Nats virgin galactic founder sir richard branson and his crewmates we should ban law are here to talk about what their historic mission means for the future of space tourism and answering critics claiming the billionaire space race is turning the cosmos into a playground for the rich. Welcome back virgin galactic founder. Sir richard branson just went where no billionaires ever gone before on a spacecraft his company built to them into orbit and orbit and he joins us now with his crewmate and the third indian american woman on earth to ever reach space. sirri shah. Band la and sa- richard welcome to the view and congratulations on making history blasting off the edge of space aboard space craft. You know it's it's been a minute how we use that you are looking back. How do you feel was such an achievement through with with a with a woman i. It's just been incredible. I've been dreaming about this. Since i was since i was young so to have achieved aetna and especially to have gone up to space with virgin galactic. Which has meant so much for me. When i was little i saw richard. Sorry i am still little when i was younger I saw richard announced that he was going to create virgin galactic to make space accessible for all and it. That's when i said i was going to go up to space with virgin galactic because they didn't qualify because of my eyesight for nasa or other methods of going to space so So meaningful to have gone to space and to have gone to space with virgin galactic richard. My husband would do anything to fly to space and eat candy. Gobbling menem's do weightless cartwheel's i've told him not to even think of spending that money because he's gonna need to stay in space if he spends that money so he needs to live vicariously through you. Can you describe how it felt what you saw there. Just can you describe it to those of us. That ain't going. Well i mean we we. We we went. We went up from north to three thousand miles an hour. Eight seconds so I suspect the right the right of a lifetime and something that i think both both both responded extraordinary and then having said if he words back to kids back here on earth am i just unbuttoned and then lifting lifting up and just but really becoming peter pan of i've never is indescribable just Effectively flying flying in space and in the meantime richer and other people doing experiments in the cabin for a. We've had experiments for nasa experiments for different organizations. So they're They're they're having a good time but they're working really hard and then the views outside the windows while whilst with whilst we're doing our other things are looking at the winters back at that couldn't credible and there's the the the is is breathtaking And then if your if your husband wants then buckle back in for the ride back it's coming back into the atmosphere It's quite extreme but Bit like you see in the movies but bearable from the body. Well the risha. Esther richard just mentioned a lot of scientific good has come out of space travel things like cat. Scans and gps advanced weather. Forecasting and my understanding. Is that your job on. This flight was science based and you carried apparently experiments strapped to your leg. I wanna know what information were you trying to gather. And how do you think this capability will transform science and research absolutely so my role as mission specialist in this flight Was to conduct human tended research. So i was carrying What's called kennedy fixation to From the university of florida and had a plant in there that would express genes depending on the environment so we took it through hygiene environment on the space and the low g environment in space and they can take it back to a lab and see what genes were expressed to see how the plant reacted to that environment..

"sir richard branson" Discussed on Dumb, Gay Politics

"Well now it's time to talk about another piece of shit asshole. Induced part do is on a this is our segment called dish grades. And it's pretty self explanatory. It's basically dushi people doing dushi things while other douches watch and celebrate and today we're celebrating douche pays in space part dish the jeff bezos version. Whilst it's hard it's hard though from mark zuckerberg to this. Just i last week. The douche campaigns in america reached an all time high literally when british billionaire. Sir richard branson became the first mega civilian dish to fly to the very bottom edge of outer space this week the tax evading philandering amazonian. Jeff bezos became the second mega rich due to fly to the space but he took his do ship. Eleven miles higher than branson's went. Because bazo said we're branson went quote wasn't really space. I am loving the word right now. I am loving the word do she can't get enough of it. But unlike branson who used the carrier plane to fly his little dish rocket up to the edge of space. Jeff bezos us. An actual fucking rocket that his company blue origin built on top of the rocket. There was a little carrier capsule that had four windows six chairs in a circle and a table in the middle the rocket blasted off from blue corn ranch or some shit like that in west texas and it was controlled from the ground so there was no pilot onboard just three giant douche bags and in eighty two year old female aviation expert named wally funk. Del fake the fog fake the funk wally funk is a fucking legend so kudos to jeff bezos for allowing the one former astronaut and the one with all the experience on board be the only woman on board. But that's the only thing he will be getting kudos for well. I will say that stylistically. The rockets situation was way cooler than branson's which was just like flying on a dumb fucking slain. Even the seat arrangement on branson's was just like a plane..

"sir richard branson" Discussed on As It Happens from CBC Radio

"It's late at night. The incense is burning. You just finished binge-watching the first season of star trek. You're so blissed out that you start to wonder if your body has become one with the beanbag that you've sunken into and then finally one of your roommates breaks the silence and asks the question. Everyone is thinking what is space typically such profound questions. don't go beyond the dorm room and enter the mainstream conversation but thanks to to billionaires and they're ridiculous race to take the first commercial flight to space. Suddenly that question is on. Everyone's lips all. You can't sound that child where the dream looking up to the stars now. I'm an adult in a spaceship. Was wonderful. Adults looking down to a beautiful beautiful for the next generation dreamers. If we've been through this just imagine what you can do. That's how it sounded yesterday. When sir richard branson became the first billionaire to fly to space beating fellow billionaire. jeff bezos. By a few days it should have settled it and allowed us to get back to our dorm room debates but some including mr businesses blue origin spaceflight company are now claiming. Mr branson technically didn't fly high enough to make it to space. Laura four six a space analyst and the owner of astrological we reached her in atlanta georgia. Laura i know this is kind of a profound question but but what is space anyway. Basically we define. It is an area of vacuum. That has very little or nothing in it now. That is a very simplified way of describing it because there are a lot of things in space but the way we define it is that is outside of a atmosphere although one can see that earth itself isn't based we just heard a clip of sir richard branson a aboard his flight yesterday sounding pretty pleased with himself Did he actually make it to space. He did so. According to the us definition in virgin galactic is a us company basis defined as about fifty miles or approximately eighty kilometers. And that is where they were yesterday. They reached Something like eighty three kilometers and that is based has it's defined in the united states as it's defined in the united states but but there's been a lot of talk about this carmen line as as the official boundary line of space. Can you explain a little bit about that about where this boundary came from and whether whether that one holds up so von karman was a researcher who decided to look into your wear the orbital mechanics of things orbiting earth. You know the speed at which they orbit in the gravitational pool of the earth. We have that boundary In the forces differ in the atmosphere atmospheric Pressure isn't an aerodynamic pressures. And he decided his original research he actually decided it was actually closer to eighty kilometer but he was doing an order of magnitude that means he decided to round up to one hundred kilometers. You're like wow numbers. And so that number has stuck. And that is the official definition for an organization that is based in switzerland that a few countries around the world have agreed to a few organizations that have a lot of defining power here. In the united states traditionally us air force and then following that the federal aviation administration the faa and nasa how defined it traditionally as fifty miles and again that is also rounded around number. We like rounded up or so. There's really no clear answer here. And it really has to do with the time of day. And the time of the season and the solar activity and the Vocation around the earth with different atmospheric conditions and also the object itself so there really is no clear line so this discrepancy between where earth ends and space itself begins. Is this just a a matter of discussion among scientists or is this just another example of two billionaires in and their egos. I think it's a little bit of both in this case because we saw Blue origin Competiting company that is companies. Say that They were going to go above a hundred kilometers sunday for. They were better than virgin galactic. But that is a bit of akiko trip because both of them are going to have their passengers. Experience about four or five minutes of my gravity voting rounds in the free fall and both of them providers are going to have the the curvature of earth in the dark sky with the stars then of course. It's going to be different if you're an orbit so you've got four of it'll be like providers saying that they're better and that is an ego trip so it really just depends on what the customer wants. You mentioned mr bays and his blue origin team. I mean as far as they're concerned it's settled. I mean they tweeted the other day. I'll quote them. None of our astronauts have an asterix next to their name for ninety. Six percent of the world's population space begins one hundred kilometers up at the internationally. Recognised carmen line. What would you say to their assertion. Well blue origin is again based in the united states. Which says it's actually fifty miles so there's no asterik here in the united states it's also the blue origin end. Virgin galactic passengers and customers are going to be considered astronauts for marketing purposes. They're actually defined by the government. These like participants unless they are crew but also That number that ninety six percent of the world's population that's not quite accurate. Either because most of the world does not care where base begins. There's very few countries around the world but actually ruled on this. There is no legally recognized boundary in the for the rest of the world or here in the states. either and so it really just is a bit of magic. You mentioned laura people caring about this Many people have pointed out that the vast sums of money that have been spent to fund these two missions perhaps could have been spent on on more pressing issues here down on earth. What would you say to those people. Well remember none of this money is spent in save. One hundred percent of the money is spent here on earth for Both people that are directly involved but also seemed iraq to you components and and it services and all the different types of things that go into this kind of space light and also really great science so virgin galactic yesterday flew the very first human tended of a little research experiment. There had been research experiments on a little craft for decades. But this one. That's lou yesterday's very first one that a human got involved and it was manipulating plant biology. So there's really great practical reasons to do this. It's not just a bunch of billionaire throwing money around and he's actually really great finding technology to be done. How could that research on plant biology filter down to us. I thought really hard to answer that question of. How does this fundamental research filtered down to practical reasons. And i'm not a biologist. I can't answer that particular question. However i can't say that all research benefits humans in some way or another eventually. We origin recently flew technology for nasa on on crude flight. That will help. Nasa land humans on the moon but that is a very real time practical use for that kind of sub orbital faithfully. and so. there's really good practical reasons as well. Fundamental science fluid dynamics. And and the way that michael gravity just changes the science that we know that we take for granted here on earth. because we don't know of legality.

Taking off from a spaceport in New Mexico. The Virgin Galactic crew should reach a height of 50 miles or 80, kilometers above the Earth's surface, according to NASA. That's where the atmosphere ends. So Sir Richard will officially become an astronaut. I've always been a dreamer my mom taught me to never give up. To reach for the stars. It's July, our dream will become a reality. And we're really excited to share that moment with your The Virgin Galactic program stretches back nearly 20 years and hasn't always gone smoothly. In 2014, a pilot was killed during a test flight over the Mojave Desert. This is only the beginning. Soon enough, Jeff Bezoza will take off in his blue origin rocket. Some critics say this is simply the folly of rich men and question the logic of commercial space travel when the skies are already full of junk, But for others, it's all about reaching for the Stars. Virgin Galactic plan to start commercial services in 2022. Said they could be running 100 flights a year, 12 months later.

Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game

"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.

"To know who's interested and you will keep them posted for upcoming projects. And it'd be great to hear from them. Has Sir Richard Branson told you when? What year or even what decade you might expect to be able to take a seat and head out. Well, it's actually already been over a decade, so he's planning to take a slight this year and luckily you know, the wife has not hit us. So things are going perfectly well with Virgin and with space tourism, In fact, both orbital and Barbara so once he goes than legal, so I don't think it's going to be the next decade is going to be within very, very soon. Hopefully this year or next year for the Their life to begin for the founders. Now are your parents still around so they could appreciate that you finally made good on your promise is a little girl t become an answer. Don No, actually, they did when my mother passed away three years ago and my father last year, so I mean, they They also enter the whole waiting period. But you know they're not there anymore. But my father is the one who introduced me to the bones when I was a little kid. Like really young, and that's what got me hooked on to the stars. And whenever I think of space, I think of my father and his love it with me. Guidance is with me his word Zaventem with Damar with me, and I know him. And of course, I'll remember him when I go to space. Well, Ms Salim is a pleasure to have you on. As I said, I'm envious. I wish I could be taking one of those trips. That's no Mira Salim, founding astronaut and Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic, the first private space line on earth, and that context is interesting. $50,000 for the first transatlantic flights on commercial aircraft, and at that time 50,000 Bucks was well, it's still an enormous amount of money, even Mohr so back then, can you imagine if space travel could ever come within reach of.

California governor provides update on coronavirus

"Fourteen I'm hearing of the USS mercy and they just arrived here at what we refer to as the state operations center where I'm currently filming this Facebook live the team is not only simple here they've assembled the USS mercy it's on its way to Los Angeles and will be arriving this Friday and as early as this weekend it will be available to pick up individuals that we deem prioritize an appropriate to be taken care of and supported on the chip by just got to say it's a reminder when you meet these young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are U. S. navy when you meet highs and young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are the U. S. navy and those that are working to get the USS mercy here in California I have done a remarkable job to turn around a very short period of time eleven hundred crew on that ship and we're now in the process of determining exactly which type of decompression strategies that will work and what I mean by that is to decompress the rest of the system by providing support on board that ship so that we can ultimately advance our protocols and procedures to get people in more appropriate care and more appropriate settings and so that's the purpose of the conversation we just had the conversations that are occurring quite literally in real time behind me but we're very very enthusiastic that that ship will be coming apart as early as this Friday accordingly we advanced a number of actions today particularly on the issue of prisons and the state I did an executive order today as it relates to the intake processing both at C. D. C. R. I. California state correction system and DJ J. R. juvenile division in order to address the legitimate anxieties and concerns related to prisoners and to make sure that we have our procedures and protocols in place to protect staff as well as inmates from covert nineteen as you know we have one official tested positive inmate we have five staff members currently we are going to restrict the intake process in the system and we are putting together new a protocols and procedures and throughout that system thirty five presence to make sure that we are isolated people were not mixing our prison populations as we tend to do transfers and the like on a typical basis so the executive order a reinforced the guidelines or procedures and protocols that were now advancing both for DJJ and C. C. R. in addition to that something's very familiar to me and weekly basis I review personally the recommendations of our parole board for people that are eligible for parole in each and every circumstance when people are made eligible to go through a very formal process of interviews and reviews that's done in person because of the nature of this virus the nature of this moment we're going to be changing procedures and protocols and in the executive order we lay out a strategy to begin the process of doing a video conferences this would be a temporary advancement but under the circumstances in terms of our isolation strategies in order to continue the processing of people that are eligible for parole in the encouragement to make sure that that process happens the scale it's been happening in the past we think it's appropriate to move forward with those teleconferences in that executive order lays out strategies to do just that and so those orders will be in effect the artifact media at Lee and the protocols the procedures are in effect in real time and we could talk more about that in the coming days as we look not just to the state prison population but the county jail population as well in addition to that we had remarkable Dave conversations with the army corps of engineers they are now stationed just right outside our stock here at the emergency operation centers we have three divisions throughout the state of California and they've been working with our state leadership National Guard others within our respective organizations to cite through a survey process the appropriate locations for potential support of army corps in addition to sites that we have identified through our federal medical program that we announced yesterday and the fact that we have two sides coming up one in riverside in Santa Clara we're looking additional sites in ways that the army corps can complement the work to get those sites fully operational insights convention facilities that's facilities large and small up and down the state fairgrounds and the like but we went through more detailed protocols and sharing expectations so that we can lay out exactly our expectations moving forward the army corps engineers moves quickly and we're very enthusiastic that that partnership is really taking shape over the course of last week and been advanced of the course last few hours in more meaningful ways edition that we had a wonderful news Sir Richard Branson virgin now partnering as Tim cook did Ilan musk at Tesla and SpaceX just another individual that stepped up virgin stepping up bring in a seven forty seven into the bay area and Oakland and we worked on the joysticks related to that for significant enhancement of personal protective gear will have more details on that the next day or two just another point of emphasis in other example an indication of people that are stepping up in a relic ways bringing that from Asia into the bay area to help support our efforts to help support one of the largest hospital systems Kaiser in that process we had the tragic loss of a lot a young life a teenager in Lancaster California which underscores the enormity of the challenge in front of us this health crisis and how it could impact anybody and everybody and I know it's sobering when you read the headlines so have I said a child but to be more precise a teenager a lost our lives and we are doing the investigation trying to understand more about exactly what occurred but covert related tragic loss of life as of ten AM this morning we've lost forty lives in the state of California related to covet nineteen we have lost over twenty one hundred or rather we have twenty one hundred positives state California twenty one hundred and two which is seventeen point five percent higher than the previous day again that's at ten AM number those numbers change in real time but a seventeen and a half percent increase and now a loss of a young person's life I want to just make a point Tampa size this and extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family and the community that have lost their loved one but also make this point young people can and will be impacted by this virus in fact young people disproportionately are the ones testing positive in the state of California fifty percent of the two thousand one hundred and two individuals that have tested positive fifty percent are between the age of eighteen and forty nine I'll repeat that half of those that have tested positive to date in the state of California eighteen to forty nine years old this disease impacts everybody the question is the acuity and the hospitalization rate that yes does skew on the side of older populations but with this tragic now death it is a reminder to everybody to take this seriously it's a health crisis it needs to be met first and foremost head on as such and that's why it is incumbent upon all Californians to continue to take our stay at home order seriously to continue to do the kind of social distancing that common sense dictates and heed the warnings we advanced yesterday to stay out of settings like beaches and parks where you're coming into close contact with others practice social distancing and we had to step up our enforcement yesterday as it relates to shut down those parking facilities a consequence to reinforce and remind people the series of moments but what more evidence do you need of a loss of a young person's life and so I just cannot impress upon the young people out there more the seriousness of this moment and how critical they are totally getting us on the other side by practicing that social distancing that we all are custom hearing but not in every case advancing individually by the way for those that are curious twenty six percent of individuals fifty to sixty four are represented in the twenty one hundred and two individuals that have been tested positive twenty three percent of all the other cases are represented in individual site north of sixty five years old hospitalization rates tend to skew higher and those cohorts but the number of positives again remains half eighteen to forty nine so broad strokes that's been up most of the day as it relates to operationalize in a lot of the work that we've been talking about the last number of days I had a number of conversations with governors across the country about protocols and procedures to better work collaborative Lee on procurement strategies we actually are lining up in linking together our procurement teams with other states to make sure that we're not competing with one another and we're making sure we are price conscience and dealing with the issue of price gouging up comparing best practices with state attorney generals are not just the work that the federal government's doing William Barr and others that we were pleased to hear announced yesterday so those are good conversations in those conversations we hope will be made real in terms of organizing a more deliberate and strategic way the procurement of the hundreds of millions of individual items that we need to procure and shields and gloves and gowns and coveralls and face masks and swabs and the like but we have testing numbers the testing has significantly increased across this country but also in the state of California tomorrow will be laid out the new numbers that we have received that will show a significant jump in the numbers we made public as we brought together all of these one off collection sites and all of the hospitals research universities that are participating as well as the private labs and will have a new process to collect those numbers in real time I had to make until like I think more comfort in numbers on the scale of testing is still not close to where we need to be we still need more swabs we still need more reagents these aren't extraction kits but we are seeing higher throughput and we're seeing new technologies coming up there were testing work with the FDA trump administration to get all the market one of his meeting with folks today that have a forty five minute test because the issue now is not just swabs in our extraction reagents it's about turning around the tests which are in some cases taking days and days and days some cases many of seven eight nine days and so we're gonna have to address the timeliness of the diagnostic and the test results as well again yeah because they have to iterate in this space as we moved from just public labs to those commercial quest and lab core now to needing specimen sample swabs in the media associated with that to now making sure we turn around the SAT test and a much quicker time but more on that tomorrow we also in closing I've done a lot on the ventilator side of things I mentioned yesterday the heroic work of Ilan musk came through on his promise to deliver over one thousand ventilators and that was announced yesterday we have brought in ourselves we just got another one thousand and ten ventilators are from the private sector working with managing others to convert that cash of five hundred fourteen ventilators that we had to refurbish them and to get them fully operational we have received from the federal government a no direct ventilators from the national stockpile Los Angeles county did receive one hundred and seventy and they have a unique relationship to the national stockpile but that's all we received within

"We work with large employers all around the world and our our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system. A little bit and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate rotate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction it really is about. How do we help? People be healthier happier and more Productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners. For those of you. who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse? It's one of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentlemen like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team you you can imagine. Some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir. Richard Branson's leadership in his philosophy. Is If you take care of your employees. They'll take care curb your business and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees so strong and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and Aside from labor costs it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits that front. What are your thoughts on? What should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well I'm biased. But I think it has to be a behavior change too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity diabetes and heart disease as in our country and at the end of the day. There's so much we can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet our physical activity or lack thereof the stress is that we have in our lives. Just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic. I think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie what would you say right right now at at at Virgin pulse is an example of how you guys are improving. Health outcomes. Well I think we really tried to think. Outside of the box I think traditional health interventions inventions and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective. And they've been around for decades so we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people people feel like. They're failures rather than telling them that they're sick. What if we actually make them feel successful? What if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat? What would that do for self esteem for their motivation? And for the ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth. And the problem with that is they take a health risk. Assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk. Your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure..

"Those workers felt about these latest developments we hear that the agreement will include Hey raises a ratification bonus of more than nine thousand dollars promises by General Motors to invest several billion dollars in US factories over the next four years and most importantly a pass for temporary workers to become permanent hello they're the ones who work side by side other workers for half of each and few benefits I had seen that temporary workers would become permanent after three years of uninterrupted work I think that might have been shorten that time line the one of the other things that was a sticking point was product allocation commitments by GM to build vehicles in U. S. plants and we know that there was about four plants in particular that production and slowed down or stopped altogether yes in fact we're hearing preliminary reports that as this unfolds are confidential discussion now the local unions are getting word of when they'll get the small print but dad some products could possibly come back to the US from other places I think in particular Detroit hand track in Lordstown assembly in Ohio to where they were looking for different things to build there no one would be building an electric pickup truck the other one to be building a battery cells so that was what they were trying to get done in those General Motors happen have collectibility I mean they have to be able to sell what they build so I think they're doing a detailed analysis on this and again they've got some high profit stuff being built outside the US and so they do have flexibility but those discussions are very in town and the UAW is optimistic what are some of the costs that have been going around with this some reports are saying that GM was losing four hundred and fifty million dollars a week I think they might have totaled so far it's been about two billion dollars that they've lost what we know about how much this is costing everybody other at your ballpark figures and yeah well over a billion dollars obviously to get workers if you could imagine a full time salary if you're earning a sixty thousand dollars a year you work full time and then you're going down to two hundred seventy five dollars a week after three that's a big drop but the biggest issue that we're hearing is that local taxes and federal taxes have been hammered so you've got states like Michigan and Ohio Maryland taxes and others are not getting tax revenue that's the biggest shocking impact here that people don't realize eight government have taken a tremendous lot in fact the federal government so this is profit this is tax revenue and obviously local sales so that's all being tallied right now and I'm going so I've also heard that there's a big meeting where a lot of the heads are going to be deciding if they want to go through with this proposed plan but even then the strike might not end immediately the union officers and regional directors need to get together and vote than factory level leaders need to vote and agree to all this stuff so there still could be some time before all this is hammered out in addition you haven't janitorial work for era mark that actually do the work in GM plants in various locations they went out on strike a day earlier and these GM workers said we will cost you one we will not cross you again so when I was on the strike line covering bad I mean you had grown man in tears and said that violated everything may believe again but I contract they had to do so so currently they're talking about resolution for the strike extracting forty six thousand General Motors workers but there are others that are still out and they have said they will not go back until that's resolved they were watching and waiting to see the janitorial workers plants actually cannot run without the clean up yeah it's not like your school janitors TV you've been out on the picket lines with the workers themselves as we're doing this interview stepped inside briefly just to do this with us thank you for that tell us what the workers themselves are feeling now I know it's been a month that this strike has been going on and how are they feeling about these proposed agreements now harshly optimistic the workers are saying that they really want this to happen but the first thing they said to me a number of them when I came out on strike line and there's very little price so one union hall on the flag represent five thousand workers the one next door two thousand all right here and what they said is we will stay out through thanksgiving we will stay out till Christmas we do not want to go back and tell we feel good about the proposal they also feel like the top negotiator for the workers is a working man they say that over and over again he's not the kind of union leader that has a driver and all the things that you hear he's a working man who believes in the priorities of these guys and women so in terms of the feeling out here it's cold it's rainy there are huge fifty five gallon drums filled with wood and smoke burned you ride in it so called are all gathered around but they are out here people are coming in buying diapers and dropping them off the young families that temporary workers so you have families taking their strike track two hundred seventy five dollars a week and they're stocking up on supplies for young family I was out and they were doing give away boxes of food and potatoes and things like that but the small businesses are delivering meals and the nurses from a local hospital are delivering coffee around the clock TV wall Howard automotive reporter at the Detroit Free Press thank you very much for joining us thank you one space for the developed this week virgin galactic has unveiled the jumpsuits that space tourist will be wearing on their flights to the edge of space these new suits are made by under armor and are included in the two hundred and fifty thousand dollar price tag for the flight reports say that the first suit for Sir Richard Branson was completed last week and it took ten people five days to constructive the space trip itself will last about ninety minutes from take off to its gliding landing and the most exciting part of weightlessness will only last between five and eight minutes for more on the story we spoke to Michael sheets is the space reporter at CNBC they are a little bit like jumpsuits their spaces in the sense that they are

Governments working companies not so much. Beautiful there touch Lewis. They're just high end very very high tech. And now Branson announced yesterday that he has secured funding to expand it to Orlando. Because now it runs for Miami to us. Great news. Costa still fighting in court with so they're going to finally say six point six million? Passengers annually will use the train from south Florida to Orlando. He says it's a lot of people that are abandoning their cars taking the train. Absolutely. I don't know where the stations going to be in Orlando. But you know, there's going to be connections to Disney universal to yet. They also have a letter of intent to stop it while DisneyWorld, really. Yes. Okay. That was announced yesterday. Oh, I didn't know that go straight to. Wow. That's really cool. International people flying into MIA right on the train. Go to Disney. Good for everybody. And he'll do it.

Disneyland announced yesterday that they into the lines to be so long at the new Star Wars attraction that they hand out bathroom passes. So while you're waiting in line. If you have to go to the bathroom, you can run to the bathroom and come back to your spot in line and not lose your place. But a porta potty go. I'm Tanya, I hope it doesn't come to that or something like that. The street anyway, worried about his little San Francisco cheese. But that tells you how many people are expecting that's going to be nuts. Well, here, you know, John matterease, our consumer reports guy told us that they're going to hand out reservations for the first couple of months to get into Star Wars. And the only way you can get those reservations at DisneyWorld is you have to stay at one of their hotels. I think they're gonna have to extend it far beyond a couple of months because Disneyland they're not doing that. Because I guess they don't have hotel there. And they're saying that the wait is going to be six hours. Our this going to be the biggest thing they've ever had this opening and it's not even a whole park. It's just a big section of studios in that amazing. Thanks, Karen, six hours as much as a geek as you are. I can't no I I don't.

"Go again, Texas, exploring the possibility of high speed intercity rail, Charlie. And if you think you've seen this movie before you are one hundred percent, correct. This dates back to the Clements administration this dates back to the talk of the bullet train in the mid to late nineteen eighty s and since then one proposal after another has been floated and shot down to build some sort of European style. High speed intercity passenger rail connecting the state's four major urban areas that are laid out right like a triangle. It would be very easy to do it. But Texas has missed the bullseye. Every single time building in a cell type rail link that will connect Dallas Austin, San Antonio and Houston. This time the legislature will content consider a Bill that would create a joint interim committee. There would study proposals for high speed rail development, and they've already gotten interest from one Sir Richard Branson, who's virgin rail startup is actively seeking out opportunities to build high-speed rail links in the United States, obviously, Sir, Richard is a major transportation entrepreneur anyway with virgin Airways and several projects in the European Union. He we're going to have to deal with more challenges than ever before. This proposal is not worked the six or seven times. It's been tried for one of several reasons. First of all the cost of the project would be enormous. We will be in the multiple billions of dollars, and there is strong opposition to the use of any state funds to assist with rail development. Also, who you would need to use eminent domain. You would have to seize private farm residential. Ranchland for the track right of way. And you'd have to seize a lot of it, which means a lot of lawsuits a lot of delays that can stretch on sometimes for deadlines for decades. We have a serious problem in any sort of transportation initiative in Texas, connecting the major urban areas because the cities are already so build up. How do you build a new rail line into San Antonio are through Austin or into Dallas you've got streets. You've got homes. You've got businesses tried to demolish all that area. We saw some of the problems that were expressed in San Antonio's light rail proposal back in two thousand one people just don't want their streets of their neighborhoods torn up for years to try to build anything. Let alone a light passenger rail link that they might not like anyway there was for a while talk about using existing Union Pacific freight lines to run a passenger rail system and that worked for a while. But now because of increased trade with Mexico, all those UP trains have filled up. With products coming from the Michaela doors in Mexico to markets in the United States, and the UP and other pass other freight rail lines don't wanna give up any of that capacity to light rail or two passenger rail. So there's a lot of challenges ahead. But once again the legislature is gonna try it. They say we just simply cannot continue to pour asphalt for the rest of our lives. Anybody who drives up about thirty-five on a regular basis knows what a nightmare. It is with millions more people on their way to Texas. Something has to be done. At light rail continues to be the best alternative ever. Maybe the least bad.
