Super excited to see both. So my background if i go back to perhaps my brief - youth and into professional career. I really my whole life was distant creative: sculpting, painting, designing and off the back of that passion went to uni studied creative advertising and was destined. ..my path was to become a art director . My very early career was in advertising agencies and spent ten years ing servic some like pretty big clients ilo, . kohl's meyer group. Cbi off foundation and then some order client bmw and many were because of mine and it was during that time that i realized how much i loved as and surprised no surprise. I joined renault. Stralia and joining renault at the time was at a really pivotal point for the business. And that was all about preaching and finding every possible opportunity we could in the market and myra was to introduce the sierra digital program. Really lift the capability of the dealer network from a lead management perspective. Sur getting out outta rot on building confidence back in the network that we were providing leads to them in generating value from office and then from neymar roll moved into a brand and events role and so the full marketing swayed had an awesome time with the business and great team. And then my time was up. When i was tapped on the shoulder for all at anchor pinellas area group been realized real estate dot com to you joined the business not really knowing much about the role. I was joining. He'd go to market manager role and of bain there now close to seven years and moved my way through various segments. So we're two now.

We acquired a southeast asia and helped with the integration of that business side at an awesome korea here. Rei and now run. I tame called the customer. Excellence team and so my team move. Twenty incredibly talented people help support our two hundred thirty sales teams across australia. And that includes the learning development perching old training ogata market siles support collateral and operations analytic. Kpi's commissions incentive sprints and really big a big team mission and vision is to pave the new way of selling and selling clock when you work for rei. Let's bit about my story. Love love gardening love dancing and eighteen. And that's how i spend most of my time let's it's an impressive story. How you you've migrated from during the karate stuff through to or i will now into real estate now. We can't get a bit of understanding as to real estate dot com o. Rei group and what's the back story of real estate. Dot com abc business was born in the garage. Dome koster and for those familiar with john. It's in the eastern suburbs of melbourne and in nineteen ninety five and they came up with a crazy idea of water. We put the photos of property onto online so people can see them on the internet and so literally scanning photo by photo by photo built this web sought. That looks very different today than what did obviously up. Twenty plus years ago and over the years to really brilliant simple idea to gos- and today with the leading australian property portal and we have hundred million plus is it as a month coming to thought trillions of photos from a perspective and yeah we service most property clients around australia and that includes real estate agents property manages developers homebuilders land developers media clients of less amount of probably. But almost all and anyone that wants to reach property. Sega's we do business. You know you've got a really interesting background. Having spent tom and credit in automotive value in real estate can you. Maybe just discuss some of the similarities. Between automotive and real estate i remember when i joined. Ra and it was probably a month thing. I thought wow. I didn't realize there was so many similarities between the two industries. And if i stop from a business structure perspective the similarities of utah franchise groups independence at relationship between head office and you know the small small businesses that are running in local and regional areas. I think that that pressure that applies with a small business to find the raw talent retain talent when there is no professional requirement This note there's no huddle to get into other industry. And i think that is a challenge that are still share today and another real estate industry in particular institute really trying to introduce their professional courses create more opportunities for the right people to enter the industry. So they've got really quality staff sieving consumers invincibles. And i think our remember. That was a challenge in the automotive industry finding the right talent and apprenticeship styles perspective perhaps a bit of bid process. But that was probably one thing that i saw straightaway is a big lesson. In automotive that i think real estate can learn with the handshake. Between sales and after-sales and if you think of the real estate version of that is the sales and rental market now rent rolls the most profitable part of a real estate agency and if you think about the handover in the importance of one to the other the ongoing retention of the customer. I think that's a really important similarity between the two some. I think some best practice sharing could happen more. And then the probably the other big similarity i would say is the is much smarter and much savia and this is probably not exclusive to automotive in real estate but their expectations have increased tenfold. And no longer. Can you get back to a later inquiry within a couple of days. We're now seeing consumer expectations at a couple of minutes. And i think that's something that dealerships deal with daily and you know the the now now now economy that exists within cosima world.
Witnesses "would not have made a difference" in Trump trial
"Are defending their strategy in the trial of former President Donald Trump. Despite yesterday's acquittal as NPR's Barbara Sprint reports, the Democratic lawmakers say pursuing witnesses would not have changed the outcome. A surprise Senate vote to allow witnesses threatened to up end the speedy trial members on both sides of the aisle were anticipating. But managers and Trump's defense reached a deal to not add witnesses but instead allow a statement from Congresswoman Jamie Herrera Butler to be read into the record lead. Impeachment manager Jamie Raskin told NBC's Meet the press. He has no regrets. We could've had 1000 witnesses, but that could not have overcome the kinds of silly arguments that People like McConnell and capital were hanging their hats on. Republican senators Mitch McConnell and Shelley Moore Capito both cited constitutional concerns in their vote to acquit the former president. Barbara Sprint.
F1 agrees to engine freeze for 2022
"I up and essentially we chatting about two issues in one segment. Here it's the main takeaway points from thursday's meeting if the f. One commission in the meeting unanimous approval was given for an engine freeze to come into play from start next year. Movies only really agreed in principle as the commissioners requested additional details regarding the freeze before it's formally confirmed the push Free was originally led by red bow hopes to take on the honda engine project off to the manufacturer lease again of the twenty twenty one john first of all. Because i think it's always worth giving it such a vague title is the f. One commission and more than has agreed upon in relation to this engine freeze at this stage so therefore the commission has existed for decades. Now it's always been viewed as carnival. The first stage of the the formal kind of rules process so their firewood would meet with say sporting directors or tentacle directors service spotting working group technical working group when they would kinda work on ideas and proposed proposed ideas then in the up to the loss congresswoman. You'd have a strategy group which evolved the top teams who would then vote on stuff that affected the top teams only which became a big bone of contention that stress groups. Now so what we. Now have the f. On commission which used to be made up of a mixture teams the f. won a few representative and engine many representative sponsor representative but now now the situation is much simpler. It's thirty members. Ten votes ten votes for one ten votes for the team Basically if you wanna get rules changed instantly it's now called a supermajority so the need for unanimous support is no longer there. It's twenty eight votes. Which means you can't have a situation. I had lost. Sight is blocked the reverse. Grace idea you'd need at least three teams began something for its get blocked so i think is a much better process now should hopefully ensure you know a bit more ensure bit more of a more structured process in a collaborative process as if seemingly engine freeze swing in the old days. You would have been unlikely to get full support for an engine freeze. But it's been work tons to fundamental is determined to bring a new era into one where things get done properly. We've seen the the first outcomes of that yesterday indeed. How big a decision is they. Sytems of what it means more could it potentially due to the future patients regarding the competitive order in formula one. Yes a massive thing. I think we've seen we saw the past few months ever since honda announced his exit from athlon redbook very constant. They said we've got lots of options very relaxed about things and even though there are only seems to be three manufacturers. They could worked with mercedes ferrari and renault. The rules sat side if none of them came forward to give supply deal when i would have to appeal because it supplies the fewest teams. So i think that But it was never something. The red bull really wanted to go down the avenue so they were always very competent than most at taking over the honda engine projects. Which obviously would be a huge undertaking. But they always said it was dependent on a development and f one for the engine side and that as being something that seems so gone back and forth on the past months. Initially you had red bull mercedes very much in favour. Ferrari were against it. Then ferrari goal agreement to bring forward new regulations for the power units from two twenty six twenty twenty five so they were on board but they wanted a balanced performance style mechanism to show no manufacturers called left behind the ladies. Were against it again. And sorta gone back and forth and so we finally got that none of station three. And yeah i think it is. It's very important for the competitive order because it means the ultimately once we get to the start of the twenty twenty two sees an your power unit is set then until the end of twenty twenty four and that's really really huge thing and it's been made very clear by those out in the meeting. There is no balanced performance. Sort of element to this. There's no that if you find yourself suddenly behind you've got to get some benefits. Maybe increased fuel flow or anything like that. Spare catch up again. It is very much that you've gotta get it right first time around. So it's i think bread bullets very exciting is a really cool opportunity to do something you and take on the honda projects which are saying through rights the twenty one but there is also the risk of if they don't get it right and the star twenty twenty than they're going to be stuck in a position for a couple of years so it's going to be pretty high stakes going into next
Impeachment Managers Show New Graphic Security Footage Of Capitol Riot
"Note as the video begins. We are seeing the inside view as the mob approaches from outside and beats the windows. Endorse the images were riveting. Some senators leaned forward to get a better look identifying themselves in graphic videos of legislators sprinting down capitol hallways and members narrowly escaping out. Back doors. others looked away. One senator was so shaken that he appeared to tear up. That was the scene on wednesday as house. Impeachment managers kicked off their case against former president. Donald trump by making senators relive their worst nightmare. The january sixth insurrection at the very place they were sitting the. Us capitol waves were made when this never before seen footage was presented officer. Goodman passes senator mitt romney and direct him to turn around in order to get to safety on the first floor. Just be meet them. The mob had already started to search for the senate chamber minutes. After seeing that video mitt. Romney told reporters quote that was overwhelmingly distressing and emotional politically speaking. No one appears to be struggling more with the trial. Then bill cassidy who switched his vote. Tuesday declaring the impeachment trial as constitutional on wednesday the louisiana republican spent most of his time either furiously taking notes or pacing in the back of the room occasionally letting allowed size slip and when house impeachment managers played that video. He was seen shaking his head often and crossing his arms clearly disturbed by the footage. Later that night he told the press pool quote. I'm here to uphold the constitution. i'm upholding it. i'm doing. My job was his reaction surprising. Our own burgess everett reports. Not really he writes. That's par for the course for cassidy who's made a reputation. As an outlier. He's not a trump loyalist. Like lindsey graham or rand. Paul now cassidy is torn between what many of his constituents want critics everett notes have dumped him quote psycho bill and what he feels is his duty and the white house breaks its silence on the impeachment. Trial finally a word from camp biden until now biden and his senior advisors have avoided commenting on trial but cedric richmond. The president's senior adviser told the new york times yesterday that cassidy's vote to declare the trial. Constitutional was a quote profile in courage. Remember richmond is the same guy who famously said of cassidy. Quote dude is weird. Oh how the tables have turned because richmond is now adjusting his opinion telling the times. That cassidy has quote always been independent. A little insight into why biden is keeping his lips. Shut on you know one of the biggest stories in the nation right now. The associated press reports that white house. Aides say that behind closed doors weighing in on the trial would be a lose lose for biden that. Ap story says biden's aides think throwing his hat in the ring would just draw the focus away from trump's alleged misconduct and onto biden's own views but that strategy could change because the reports that no one is expecting biden silence to last forever especially if there is an acquittal a move that could push trump back into the spotlight and on cable interviews and inflame the country deeper.
Autophagy, Fat Burning, and Muscle Building
"So this. Podcast is an audio recording of one of my most popular youtube videos. On one of my favorite topics fasted exercise. I am a fitness fanatic. I love to lift weights. I also do a little bit of running. I'm not a long distance runner. But i'll do some sprints things like that in fitness has been you know just a big part of my life really since the earliest my earliest days. I've always been Interested in fitness and performance. But when i started doing fasted exercise in my twenty that dramatically changed my life just the level of energy. The muscle building the fat burning. The just the natural high that i got from exercise went to a whole 'nother level and you guys are going to see that when we do facet exercise it drives up something called tafkaji where our body breaks down old damaged cells and re re recycles them recycles the sailor organ anals and the and the proteins in and informs new healthier cells. It's one of the single best things you can do for. Your body is intermittent fasting and combining it with exercise doing some level exercise in your fast window. And i'm gonna go through the science and show you exactly how to do it. How i recommend it in this podcast. And if you haven't left us a five star review yet. That would be a great thing to do when you leave us a review that actually helps us reach more people with this podcast impact more lives and change the world for better. And then if you haven't subscribe to our channel. Please do that way. You get notified whenever we put up a new podcast see. Never miss any of these valuable trainings. Thanks so much for leaving the review and subscribe to our channel. And let's go into the show. Hey everybody today. I'm talking about fasting. Exercise and tofte g and so when we think about exercise we know that it's great for helping stimulate metabolic flexibility which is really the ability to go between burning sugar for fuel and burning. Fats wimmer rest. We wanna use fat for fuel warmer exercising particularly at a high intensity. We don't have enough. Oxygen burn a lot of so instead. We want to be able to burn up sugar for fuel and so exercise a great stimulus for that. Fasting also helps us develop this metabolic flexibility again The ability to change our metabolism to meet the demands of our environment to go between burning sugar or fat or key tones for fuel source and then we also want to improve our energy efficiency which is really just being efficient with energy we use so we don't want a lot of wasted energy and so exercise and fasting help us be the most energy-efficient beings we can be so that way we're able to utilize energy for all the things that we need for good. Immune regulation optimal healing for brain function for production. Everything that we need without a lot of wasted energy and so when we look at our main fuel sources we know that our body runoff key tones fatty acids and glucose and so we want the ability to produce key tones used them particularly in the brain so our brain we can't get fatty acids through a blood brain barrier but we can get key tones and key. Tones are water soluble breakdown products of fatty acids and we actually pretty tremendous amount of energy with key towns and less metabolic waste. So they're very efficient. Worms of fuel glucose. The advantage of using glucose or sugar for fuel is that we can do it in anaerobic states meaning when we don't have enough oxygen exercising in a really high intensity we use glucose for fuel and it's able to produce energy very quickly however it also produces a lot of metabolic waste will experience this. When we exercise will get the burn. That's the metabolic acidosis that occurs because our bodies not able to buffer the amount of acid. That's being produced on top of that. There's a lot of Free radicals that are formed a lot of oxidative stress. The body goes under for short periods of time. When we're exercising that's a good thing. It's actually a positive stress. We call it a war medic stress that actually trains the body to produce endogenous antioxidants. Like i on more effectively. So that's a great thing to recover. We get stronger more resilient but we want once we're done exercising and we're back in kind of arresting mode we want our body to be able to staten key tones as its main fuel source and create less fuel from glucose and so another great benefit of this is autophagy in autophagy is when the body breaks down older decaying cellular organ else and so both days and fasting help stimulate

Mahomes to have surgery to fix turf toe
"Were talking about Patrick Mahomes undergoing surgery turf toe. And we started talking about this about three hours ago, and we were just going around the room going. Do we know exactly what a turf toe is? Because it gets it gets thrown around a lot and remember when dealing Sanders was with us at the Super Bowl when he took off his sock, and he showed us that toe That was turf toe that never healed whether he had surgery on it or nod Jack Lambert, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker, I think had turf toe and it stayed with him the rest of his career, so we thought You know what? Let's bring in somebody who knows what they're talking about. A former NFL offensive lineman won a Super Bowl with Washington a Harvard trained orthopedic doctor, mark addicts and good to have you back on here, Doc. So Do you want us to tell you what we think Turf toe is and then you could probably correct us on this. That'd be great. Let's see what you guys got. Let's see how good you are. All right. I'll start with you, Paulie. What do you think your toe is like a ligament sprain in the toe that hampers an athlete from pushing off like sprinting like running for two. You got a definition for church to one's toe was so severely sprained from the pounding on the torture that it does something. What kind of disconnects Tito from the other toes and needs to be surgically fix a snap back into place. All right, Seaton It is an injury that when, uh, say like wide receivers are going to get their second foot in and they drag it along the left their toes on the turf, and then it gets hurt like that. No, I did not. I did not even look at it that way. Yes, my club, So I thought it was a rug burn style injury from any time she goes on the worse when you're playing with your kids of rug burn, but I do believe it's out. Now ligament underneath your toe that connects to the foot. Okay, let's let's bring in. Doc and Doc. What exactly is Turf toe. Well, I think I think example one wins the ligament injury so it could be a ligament injury. Or it could be an injury to the planter plate, which is almost like a Cartlidge thing That's on the bottom of it, So it is the big toe joint. And it rarely. Is it an injury? There were quite a surgery. The bass majority of players don't require surgery in the NFL there have been about there was a study that was done that had about 30 guys with serfdom. Injuries that were pretty severe, and only about 10% ended up requiring some surgery. Deon Sanders did require surgery. Deon Sanders Strip toe injury did end his career. Essentially, he stuck around for a couple more years, but never really was the same. Antonio Gates had it had a pretty bad turf toe had surgery in 2000 and eight and played Many years was very productive after that injury in surgery, So generally speaking guys, too, Okay. I think John was as his foot with a test was an extreme case. Didn't Mahomes play the Super Bowl with a Tauron ligament? Certainly did. I mean, I In other words, when you have a tip toe injury there, three grades break one. Great, too Great three. It's the same for almost anything. Great one, just a few of the fibers or tourney. Great to a bunch more. Tauron. Great three. It's completely disrupted. So for someone to need surgery generally, there's got to be a little bone chip. It's in the joint or the toe has to be somewhat unstable, which would tell you that that ligament tear had to be pretty significant.

How Galaxy Digital bridges the gap between the crypto and the institutional worlds
"A very simple thing to ask you. Which is what is galaxy actually do. Because every time i see described. It's usually a really vague. Term like galaxy is an investment firm in crypto or galaxy. Works in the crypto industry. Never see a release specific description of it i. We're going to try to be much crystal player so we have four or five businesses. Did anyone to break it out. We have one business. Which is were you know or adventure shop direct investing and so we've invested in eighty companies. That are building out the crypto ecosystem from new protocols like one inch or luna token to exchanges to custody services so anything that has touched the crypto ecosystem or quite frankly the virtual world ecosystem we're investing in so we have a giant portfolio of of investments. We have inventory of bitcoin. Theory of another coins that i personally trade And so by at one is going down and settlers going up and so that's our principal activities. Then we have what you'd call a traditional sales let sales trading credits. We lend money to people that are participating in the space that's miners. That's that are just normal. Customers lending on margin we have a derivative business. Right were the second or third biggest a market maker in options and so you want to do structure product or sell calls against your position or by plus where there for institutions we have an asset management business where we take other people's money in raise it we have a bitcoin fund We have the bloomberg. Bitcoin crypto index We have a venture fund that focus on the virtual worlds stuff and we have an investment bank a group of people that have great domain expertise in the space and we'll give advice on mergers and acquisitions on on capela raziq and so and then we have a mining division right. We are minding our own crypto. And that's mining finance its mining derivatives in its us mining ourselves and so pretty broad and diversified it's been focused on institutions not retail. And so that was a painful position to be in until about april last year. With covid happened right. i said l. the 'institutions are coming in men. they were slow and then covert happened. And they went from walking at one mile an hour to trotting to sprinting. And now it's like ninety nine mph. You know just mad dash and so you've seen hedge funds insurance companies asset managers all entering the space since april and. That's why when we went through twenty. We went right to forty in bitcoin. Those institutions are mostly buying bitcoin. But the moment you make a little money in bitcoin yelich. What else is in this space. And you look into the theory amoeba system. And you're like wow that's pretty cool too. And so then. They're putting some money in theory and then the final spaces will wear the real disruptions to happen is in defy defy really simply put his taking a blockchain breeds in the financial system. Right it is creating driverless. Banks or driverless. Insurance companies are driverless derivative markets. And that while it still. I think in the sandbox right. It's still working out the kinks in beings. Lloyd it's growing so fast that you could see the guppies jump out of the sandbox and become frog's really

Should Law Enforcement Use Facial Recognition
"Facial. Recognition wasn't always ankle tattoo. Good as with many of these technologies it was a stair step process. Ted claypool is a lawyer and an author on legally shoes surrounding privacy and a through the audits facial recognition listed. It wasn't great Until about two thousand and fifteen. It wasn't something that that would really be usable whereas the fbi of course has a as long had a biometric database of fingerprints for example But their face sprint database. Really wasn't Great until recently and then the clearview database which takes all of the social media pictures into account as really multiplied the abilities to use this kind of database before clearview. Police departments around florida relied on a program called faces. The facial analysis comparison and examination system based on an algorithm developed by the french company idea. It works by cross-referencing database of medians mugshots driver's licenses as well as digital photographs taken by police officers but faces just. Isn't that great. According to the new york times. Florida officers query system as much as four thousand six hundred times month at its peak but only a small fraction yielded anything resembling results. It took four years for the system to aid in an actual arrest and according to the new york times in its twenty years of only around. Two thousand successful arrests have been causally tied to faces. That number doesn't include questionable cases or accurate identifications which didn't lead to arrests and it's worth noting that took a wild for faces to spread statewide but still do thousand rests is not a lot for a place as big as florida. It's even less impressive when you consider just how expensive software is faces was built off a three point. Five million dollar government grant in the year two thousand and by two thousand. Fourteen ended up eating fourteen million in taxpayer dollars. So that's fourteen million dollars divided by two thousand arrests Let's see drag the one and yep seven thousand dollars pair arrest. Maybe a reasonable awry on a bank robber but not your standard. Heather riles if you're a defender fighting to protect your organization from cyber attackers. You must be successful ending attacks every single time. They only need to be successful. Wants cyber reason rivers the attackers advantage. Our future ready attack platform gives defenders the wisdom to uncover understand and piece together multiple threats and the precision focused to inside attacks instantly cyberrays ends cyberattacks from in quotes to everywhere so this podcast episode. Probably couldn't have existed ten or even five years ago. We could have envisioned future where police uses facial recognition. But it just wasn't practical enough at the time in the past few years that's changed. According to tests from nist the national institute of standards and technology the best facial recognition algorithms have improved from around eight percent failure rates in two thousand and ten to around point three percent by two thousand eighteen. These numbers are highly dependent on the kinds of images. You feed these algorithmic but still ninety nine point seven percent. Accuracy is quite good and that's three whole years ago thus we end up with clearview ai which can identify faces at angles or even with partial coverings sunglasses and face masks or it wouldn't need to identify a face because it can identify attached to instead it's a very powerful tool that in the hands of law enforcement today is having a real effect which brings up the question now that police can use facial recognition to catch criminals should they.

We believe that we have to Reopen schools. We've been closed for almost a year now and as a school system, we're starting to see some of the effects of schools being closed. Many of our students aren't logging on. We're seeing African American and latte next students in particular being especially hard hit, and our goal is to really give every parent and option. Those families who want to remain remote will have that option through the remainder of the school year. But we have thousands of families who want an in person option because there is essential workers themselves. So on that CDC plan. I know this report this week got a lot of attention, really urging schools to reopen on DSI ng that transmission can be stopped if master warning their social distancing, But the same report said there should still be restrictions in the community, and it's cited indoor dining. Chicago has already opened its bars and restaurants. How do you feel about that? Yeah, I think we've learned a lot about re opening from the past spring. Definitely prioritizing the reopening of schools has to be at the top of the list. And our mayor has done that. We have re opened bars and restaurants at limited capacity here in the city. But one thing that was really important in that report is that it showed that community spread does not necessarily impact. I'm sprint within a particular school and that implementing mitigating mitigation strategies with Fidelity. Actually is more successful, You know, lead to more success with re opening, and so we're focused on that We have a solid plan in place that goes above and beyond the guidance that we've heard from city as well, a CDC officials and we believe that we can safely reopen and we've been open for three weeks or we have been over for three weeks with a great degree of success, so the time is now for students to return to the classroom.

"That's how i choose dinner. I know what i don't want i don't know what i want. I pretty sure. I know all the things i don't want so if i see all the things that don't want it starts to narrow it down for me and i think to your point. I think i've seen. I've also seen that sort of experience with folks to is that they didn't know what they didn't want until they were presented with it and then but then it also spark some ideas in further conversations. That then helped move it. An pivot for lack of a better word to maybe a more solid idea or something worse more spending more time on so it makes a lot of sense to me. yeah i oftentimes say. A picture's worth a thousand words. That's the thing we've heard. Many times worth many prototypes worth a million words. But yeah exactly that so you can tell somebody about something. And they're going to interpret your words in whatever way their mind chooses gingerbread but put an actual prototype in front of them and ask them to respond to it. Then you've achieved a level of clarity about what that idea is through presenting that prototype that you could not achieve language alone and it's just it's a smarter way of is a smarter way of working that way but that's not the stories we told we told of these these young entrepreneurs that you know through all this stuff at this thing and all of a sudden boom. They're rich and and they had this great idea and they just ran with it and drove it. Forward where what you don't see though is all the missteps and all the failures along the way because we don't celebrate those. They've all had them. What i really love what i'm hearing from. You is the sprint process really allows you to build some guardrails to protect you from making it a bigger thing than it needs to be or Spending six months like we used to do making prototypes and pushing them out and then being very disappointed..
WTA Year End Awards for 2020
"Everyone john worth. I'm hearing sports. Illustrated tennis podcast. Jamie joins me for a grab bag topics. We are midway through the final so hard to make any definitive conclusions there but we can talk about the the back of played so far. We'll talk about twenty twenty one tennis and what the picture is looking like. It's slowly coming into focus but still considerably Blurry and uncertain. We'll talk w. t. awards. There are no more women's tennis events on the calendar. But we can start distributing some honors and just sort of a catchall of tennis topics as we want to say to the finish. But we're not exactly sprinting. Either a stranger that is Finishing under strained conditions and we talk about sort of where the sport is here in mid november twenty twenty so jamie welcome. it's it's been a while. how are you. i'm good. i agree with you. It's a weird year. And i feel like we've been talking a lot about the atp and obviously the atp finals are happening. So i am happy to start by out talking about the wpa and some of these awards all right. let's go. let's let's that. I that's a good idea let's go to That'd be the w. t. a. Does not unlike the wto does not have a finals or twenty twenty. Unfortunately that's An offshoot of having events in china where international sporting events were cancelled months ago. So the vendor playing as we speak in london and there is no there is no comparable women's event. So let's say yeah let's do that. Let's start with the women season over. Why don't we hand out some awards. We genda pivot to london. Mvp award is always a bit strange. But if we're going to give player of the year honors. I feel like the player has to have won a major. Do you agree with that. Yes definitely agree with that. But this year of course We had one less. And i think that i would also classify the majors in two creek corona and post corona. I would almost give a little bit more weight or just feel like there's more discussion for all the majors. That are not the train open you know. Of course that was when all was normal and before all this happened But i know you. You went to your pace in your mailbox but are you. Who's your pick. i think it. It sounds sounds a little. I think you've got to say that the so you can is your twenty twenty. Mvp she won a major and got to the final of another If we play this game sometime if your life depended on a player Would she be your pick and the answer is is probably not and do i think in a head to head match. There are players who are superior. If if she and i o miyasaka played ten times i would think naomi osaka with the majority of those matches. But yeah in this straight year. But i think you're right. There was no wimbledon. There there was a us open but it did not feature you know six top ten players including ash barty the number one player including simona halep included the defending champion and that was That was one sock than we had. The french open which also did not feature ash party. Who is the defending champion. It did not feature. Naomi osaka the australian open before corona had the most flush field. So you can in one that and she reached the final of the french open so she is the only player to have won a major and got into the final of another and in this stranger. It's probably appropriate. We have a strange choice but sonya sofia kenyon is my Twenty twenty mvp will by you. I hear you on that. And i think those are all good points. I in you know so that we aren't agreeing here on all of these under some Interest to this conversation. I'm going to take a different pic. i'm gonna go with naomi osaka and i think that In speaking about mvp sort of in the Like a of a lot of awards that are giving out at this time of the year including essays own award sportsperson of the year. It's not just about what's happening on the court. It's just not about results per se about other things that This player has done. So i think that For me. I think niamey osaka. Of course like you said kennan if you're just talking about reaching a final winning final In a major. She's done that but osaka has not only one. But also use her platform and she's spoken up and she's gone beyond the court and i think that you know if we're talking if you're looking at that list of choices here And you check the box with a major win in for me. You check the box with all the other outside stuff off the court that she's done so that's my pick.

That's that's the main contact. . The real strength of the design sprint is the fact that you have everyone in the room or a very focused worked together. . A short period of time. . That allows you to align teams better to make savvy unreal progress and you have user input from the very beginning of when you start bling your product. . Go to, , yes. .

So it's Good for companies and for end users, , which is all like was everything I feel very passionate about. . So perhaps. . I can tell you about how the voice actor designs sprint came to be, , which were also explained how it is different from regular design sprint. . Yeah. . Definitely. . Go ahead. . So. .

"Except for the disrespect it's do. There were things that she said that I was like fuck me. Do they have a gun to her back at the moment, but there was other shit that you said where I. was like Damn Okay She's actually acknowledging. The civil rights issues we have across our country speaking to them in a direct, a more direct way at least than literally every single other Republican that was run up onto the stage. Or? Piped in from wherever the fuck on camera and these awkward awkward awkward speeches Bro a lot of which got leaked beforehand. So you could read them as they were reading them and it was just like the most I mean. No one actually says anything no, it's the same message just different words over and over again about how we're GonNa make America great again. No one ever says anything on the other side either to be no no, no nothing is the same thing and it's just a different slogan. Obviously, we have politicians on both sides that are good and are not shit. But for the most part, the ones we see at the top, they get run out of these conventions they're fucking awful and they say things that make me want to die and then there was like this lightbulb when Melania trump. The first lady the by the way WHO's not even supposed to be speaking to political shit at these conventions or whatever. Apparently that's a thing. I don't know if it's a law, but it's like a one of those unspoken things like the first lady's not supposed to get not supposed to talk like real. Specific like kind of how Michelle Obama's much more about you know feed the children and Malania has her Shitsu. It's just got the worst name ever. It's called like. Now I have to look this up as well as a lawn care guy. Though right now I have some beef with Melania. She fucked with the White House's Rose Garden to be best. That's what it's called be best. I'm not joking. Oh. Best of of of life, it's a public awareness campaign to be focused on well being for youth and advocating against cyber bullying and drug particularly opioid use. Okay. Have you seen hit called? We need more cyber bullying in this world. Best. Be Like just the letter B. or B. E. WE ninety more cyber bullying Kohl's house does just suggest people never know when we're joking anymore but it was like so like when I grow up like we were like hardcore anti bullying campaign when I was in like middle school and high school, and now we have all these tiktok kids that obviously don't have enough people keeping them in check they should be best. Also. Real quick. It was John. Adams that said, the two party system was a horrible idea. He was a different founding father apologies. Thomas. Jefferson was one of the perpetrators of the two party system but also. It just makes me. The older. I've gotten the more that I've realized. We're just like it doesn't matter what you believe. If you really break it down things that I know were sex of flesh on a floating rock and the endless abyss of space. WHY THE HELL Are we so angry, why are we so angry? We're blessed enough to be born onto this planet. We're blessed enough to have the chance to explore this life to live whatever this may be. We have a very by night amount of time on this. People just seem angry people seem upset like nobody wants to. fucking. Insane well, okay I'm angry at this. I'm saying people in the political system are angry at each other as opposed to attempting to love across the for them. That's the thing people have failing to see all of this shit there spewing works for them because. Yeah, it doesn't work for us. It doesn't do anything for the people. It's just about politics in keeping politicians in their political power. That's it. There's no. The problem seeing like the failure to acknowledge that a lot of this is literally propaganda at this point. Literally not that's my opinion. It's a fact. A lot of what we're seeing is propaganda. It's not real. It's fucking bullshit that is organized to get you to think and act a certain way. which I'm not cool with obviously. As a freedom loving American that disturbs me a great deal to see propaganda putting out being put out constantly people buy into. And don't even stop to question. The fact that the GOP came out and said that are only running on trump's reelection. There's no platform is is a scary. The plow home is to really real. Yeah that's it. That's that's the basis of the GOP, the GOP's platform and really. What I was GONNA. Say really the basis of the DNC's platform is just to get Joe Biden elected to get trump out. And? There's really no. I've heard very little discourse on what actually wants to be done by either party if they're to be elected. Very, very little discourse. Also. If. You are a if you are a Republican and you're listening. I I don't know. I guess. Please just try to vote with your. Thinking outside of just about you. All right. If you're a Democrat and you're listening, please acknowledge the fact that like. These people. That are at the top of the Democratic Party's leadership have never had a better opportunity. To step in and turn it around and they have completely shit the bed time and time and time again for most of my life really and that's why we have these wide swings from back to right back to left back to right and it's just getting. Ridiculous. So this would November coming up. I WANNA to have a conversation very quickly about why we vote how we choose who we vote for and what our elected officials in this country are meant to actually do so why do we vote To ensure that we individually are represented selfishly just in our own homes. Or is it to ensure all Americans are in the best position? Possible. For. This country to succeed. Is it. Basically, it's like are is this a team? Are we all on our own. Duke it out seeing what we can get for ourselves because it seems like it's the ladder and it seems like that's gone horribly wrong. and. Like it's just a question to ask yourselves for me to ask myself as we approach November for all of us to ask ourselves, why do I vote? What am I voting about? What is the point of me casting vote? What am I trying to accomplish with the my vote? Who Vote for is it based on what I see on TV? Is it based on these conventions that I watch or don't watch? Is it based on headlines that you read on the Internet? Do Do. We actually read and do research about our candidates or are we just going to go out and do the whole like what we've seen online and on and? Recognizable names and faces thing. Are you going to only focus on the national presidential level election or are you going to focus on the local level to these are all questions we need to start asking ourselves probably several years ago but right now If, you haven't already because it's August twenty sixth August is almost gone. In election season is drawing even more near. So. Let's all make a more concerted effort on both sides to do our research do our due diligence and cast votes for representatives who actually represent us, and what we think is best not just for individual fucking selves and families, but for the country as a whole. Every selfish act begets another one and that snowball gets you to where we are now. But you can undo this shit. Is, always a road back in life. Is this one a complicated one absolutely. But the more of us that act. Righteously correctly, not just thinking about ourselves taking into consideration bigger picture issues, other people's perspectives doing all the things we've talked about over the past several months. The better off we will be in in slowly we can unravel this fucking shit ball. It's not a snowball anymore Pu. It's it's just poo. and. We need to get rid of the the POOP who has to go.

And then you're free to focus the rest of the week I think that's a for a lot of teams sort of in the in the real world. That's a really good use of that. Astro v Day. Suggestion and as you said right. If you get to the end of the at maybe the way you had envisioned the outcome being that still incredible learning, we may have saved ourselves months of going down the wrong path right? Yeah, well. Yeah, even a failed sprint quote unquote failed. Sprint is is not really a failure. Because like you, said you. You undoubtedly learned a ton of stuff. So, take us through the recipe. If we have the five day spree in mind, where do we start was the key things here? Sure the most important thing is that you have a big problem or opportunity, so design sprints don't make sense when you work on a little thing a little feature. Sort of a nice to have project or you know kind of conceptual. Maybe this kind of this interesting thing. We're thinking about because you're asking. A lot of people are asking for a lot of time. A lot of focus and we find that sprints work best when they're focused on something. That's really important. The type of thing that's keeping people up at night. The type of thing that you've been having meetings about for weeks or mom and you can't quite seem to to get any traction, so that's important thing is. A big problem. Need to gather a team. You WanNa have sort of a team that that reflects represents the real team who's responsible for designing this product or moving this metric or reaching this type of customer or whatever your your problem is. And then of course, the time, and so within the five day framework. Assuming that you you've kind of blocked off of a five day WORKWEEK, Monday to Friday week. There is basically one big goal per day. And again it's all in pursuit of that realistic prototype, and that customer test on Friday, but the there's sort of a series of of activities they all roll up to one big goal per day, and then all those big goals roll up to that that big moment at the end of the week. Monday is all about problem framing so Monday. We call that the mapping day, so you're basically creating a shared map of the problem that you're working on. And this is. This is kind of feels weird to people. Sometimes because you're, you're slow, you're you're going slow so that you can go fast..

"A federally subsidized program. Sprint is now facing potential settlement with the Federal Communications Commission the regulator said in September that sprint improperly collected tens of millions of dollars in federal subsidies for eight hundred eighty five thousand customers. who weren't using the service as part of lifeline? Joining joining me now with more on this Wall Street Journal exclusive is reporter Sara Krause. So let's start by talking about lifeline program. This is a federal program that was created back in the nineteen eighty s for low income users and the idea was to give them access to emergency services. Tell us how it worked then. Sure so what this program is meant to do is almost like like the snap. Food benefits is to provide lower income Americans with some sort of cell phone service that allows them to either reach nine one one or stay in contact with family or a potential employer at a discounted rate and so carriers receive a government subsidy for providing this service and customers either get free service or at a discount it depends is on their income. Requirements are met and you found that throughout the program's history. It's already been revamped several times. Yes this is a fairly contentious program that the FCC under different administrations has debated what to do about it. How to overhaul it how to make sure that there is less fraud or abuse in it? It's a program that has struggled with troubles. Verifying customers. Initially customers would sell verify one. Change put that onus on carriers it's been subject to abuses from from aggressive sales tactics and sales incentives that you weren't within the spirit of the program so this is a this is a program that has been revamped several times in the past fast. So let's talk about your recent reporting and this was a Wall Street Journal exclusive that sprint over counted the active users in this program. What it sprint tell you and what did you hear from the FCC sprint currently faces a potential of regulatory settlement with the FCC four collecting tens of millions of dollars in subsidies for about eight hundred eighty five thousand lines that were improperly counted? What I discovered was that the problem actually dates back further than that so there were sort of two issues of not properly counting usage edge? The one that the FCC has disclosed has to do with sprint counting. Incoming calls that went to voicemails outgoing calls which kept lines that we're supposed to be dormant went active. What I discovered was back in two thousand thirteen and two thousand fourteen? There was another usage counting issue in which incoming text messages kept align active improperly and so that the company was never find for they shed some subscribers in Oregon but told organ officials at the time according to documents that I saw that it it was a a more widespread problem than just that state and so the Oregon Public Utility Commission which discovered both the two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen problem as well as the most recent issue found found that in one case for example a woman who had died months earlier her line was still counted as active even though she obviously was not using the device and that was because incoming text messages were counted as usage. So what are the implications for sprint. It's unclear what happens next to the FCC is currently investigating the issue that they had already identified in in terms of the voicemail issue and sprint said that the most recent issue was caused by an inadvertent coating issue in two thousand seventeen. So there were lifeline. Rule changes in two thousand sixteen eighteen carriers who provide the service then sort of adjusted their filters in IT systems to react to those changes and sprint has said it was a coding issue. At the time that caused the most recent problem there was also in response to Oregon officials in the documents that I saw back in two thousand thirteen in two thousand fourteen sprint. Said you know this is also filtering issue you. We thought that the the definition of keeping align active might evolve to include tax messages. And we you know. Accidentally put that into motion now and didn't realize is it until Oregon brought it to their attention and the thing I wanted to mention is what we're talking about when we talk about line. Usage is the lifeline program has a requirement that the customers that are receiving in the service. Actually use it. They don't WanNa keep lying open and the carrier shouldn't receive a subsidy if the consumer is not using it so there's various standards for what counts as usage. A lot of that has to do with outgoing calls. And data usage something that suggests that the consumer is actively using their device. So are there implications for other wireless carriers that use the lifeline program program and receive federal subsidies. I would say that this is perhaps a reminder of the burden of making sure that you are measuring usage accurately because you are collecting in a government subsidy and the Process Wall Street Journal reporter Sara Krause joining me in our studio in New York.

Yes in memory Blair Levin of the Brookings Institution used to work for the Federal Communications Commission at every step. This process is involved. Things have never happened before eleven. Says there are several reasons for that the FCC chairman early signal that he'd approved the plan despite questions the Department of Justice sending the Plan Dan back to the company to rework and a coalition of state attorneys general stepping up with a lawsuit to block the merger and usually the FCC the DOJ Ajay and the states are all on the same side. In this case you actually have three different groups and really three different opinions. So it's pretty weird while lobbying for the deal in Washington t mobile executives reported spending nearly two hundred thousand dollars at the trump international hotel. Monica Ullivan is an editor at fierce wireless. There are very some very unorthodox some unusual happenings in this particular Taylor proceeding so there's certainly politics involved in this still pending.

"Push the narrative i mean this one man story that said i don't know if a two hundred billion dollar deal for charter with a huge debt load is actually a good idea therefore even if a huge prices thrown out there for charter i dunno of charter says yes to that so in other still a lot of other questions that might as well the road out it's a possibility i suppose that all tvs could be the cable company in not charter that that sprint ends up doing a deal with right jerry y'all tease has actually i think said publicly that they feel like they're too small at this point to do any kind of wireless steel and the us i think they would um you know i think they're looking more at some of the smaller cable companies i mean cox is is family owned and insist that it's not for sale but i think that would be all tesis highest priority right now um alty spot cablevision and suddenly in the us a couple of years ago for those not familiar with all tc made no those names elti says no the owner of those us cable companies right an a french company right i mean one person we we actually didn't mention in this conversation is warren buffett and there was no reports and i would have loved to have been a fly on the wall win warren buffett and john malone met with the chairmen of softbank in sun valley a few weeks ago and just what sort of possible deals that they were floating around in that conversation would be it would have been very very interesting to um you know just his name alone warren buffett i mean having him and john malone doing anything in the cable wireless base would be very very interesting and lasting before we go here i will say that if softbank does in fact move forward with an offer for charter.

"As you for reported uh the structure of any kind of deal is still seems complicated there and seemed to be one clear uh partner or were solution to this obviously t mobile and sprint make the most sense but when you don't have a willing buyer were in in if a seller that's been trying to sell a for several years uh you you continue to have questions about whether done so i think a your for now we're gonna have a deal the week still talking about sprint what's going to happen that's pretty interesting to me that you eat there is no question from a sense of optimism when i speak with people on the sprint side of things i get a completely different story that when i speak to people on who ever the buyer side of things army obey the view of spread to very much depends on what glasses you're looking into because uh did the sprint people feel like sprint is the key to a 5 g world the buyers i think feel like sprint is this moneylosing struggling company that has no end in sight and why would i buy it now at a fifty a share when a less than two years ago was at three dollars a share and the company if you even look at the estimates it's gonna be several years more before they'll start even turning a profit so the feeling is is no rush from the buyer perspective where sprint seems to say you know look were were were this great asset and we hold the cards here so that i think does lend some credence to what scott as saying which is it seems like there's no real reason a deal needs to happen now other than masayoshi sons will so if a deal does get done you have to sort of tip your cap i think to him in order to two.

"Of their units similarly softbank owns eighty four percent of sprint softbank qsa masayoshi sons and a price based in tokyo softbank under the business uh by acquiring a the third number three telco in japan oddly when some decided in the u s he bought the number three toko sprint the time in the us uh but they do have the controlling shares if there is a combination there it's still going to remain at of foreignowned corn held company presumably and what we've reported on their is that deutsche telekom wants to consolidate the new company's ownership meaning that deutsche telekom would be the controlling shareholder of a combined sprint team out at least as far as we know this is what my sourcing has indicated for months rather than softbank so this is important because it a t most sprint deal softbank is in essence the seller they're selling sprint it would still own a large portion of that company but they would not be be controlling shareholder so by our definition it would be the seller that's not the case in a sprint charter deal jerry reminded us about charter whose charters majority owner so charter communications is the second largest cable provider in the us and its largest shareholder is john malone right i shouldn't say majority owner because not to be jordi arrese just their largest cheer he's our largest shareholder and you know for listeners who don't know john malone me he's basically a pioneer of the cable industry dating back to when he ran a cable company called tci um and then sold at the eighteen t in 1999 so he is you know he has a lot of sway in charters big strategic outlook he's talked recently um about the idea that cable companies could potentially by a wireless company uh right now the cable industry in the wireless industry are sort of.
