A highlight from GEN C: Dressing the Digital World With Derek Edwards, Nick Gonzalez and Megan Kaspar
"Gen C is the generation of the new Internet. In Gen C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Welcome, everyone, to the special episode of Gen C. We're about halfway through Fashion Week here in New York City. So we thought for this week, we would feature a special conversation that was had at Consensus this year called Dressing the Digital World, Cutting Edge or Out of Fashion, and features a group of people who are really some of the smartest minds in the idea of digital fashion. It has Derek Edwards from Collab in Currency, one of the sort of big brains who talks about the idea of ownership of digital assets and where we're going with trust -minimized databases and on -chain recording of transactions. We have Megan Casper, who's one of the leading voices in digital fashion, also a founding member of Red Dow. And we also have Nick Gonzalez, the co -founder of UNXD. UNXD and their team help bring large brands into the digital space. Folks like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and a bunch of others, really an amazing group of technologists. A couple of notes. This was recorded live at Consensus this year. It is in front of a audience, so you might hear a little bit of room noise from the conversation. In addition, there is a video component that is playing behind them, just some of the assets that they're talking about. Not necessary to enjoy the conversation, but if you want to, we will have the link to the session in the show notes. So if you want to watch it instead of listen to it, all you have to do is register for a Coindesk account and that should give you access to the video. But we just thought, given it's Fashion Week, we are ready to bring you an amazing conversation all about digital fashion. Avery and I will be back next week with some amazing guests and we have a really amazing lineup of guests coming over the next bunch of weeks, which we're excited to share with you. So with that, I hope you enjoy this conversation around digital fashion from Consensus 2023. Welcome. Thank you guys for joining me. So topic today is dressing the digital world, cutting edge or out of fashion. I think we are all probably on the cutting edge side of it, but let's just set the stage. Let's introduce yourself and we'll go from my side over this way. All right, Derek, you go first. No, you're ready. I say who you are, how you fit into this world, and a little bit about what your background is. Who wants to go? Megan's got this. Megan. Hi everyone. Thank you for coming today. I'm Megan Casper. I am one of the founding members along with Derek of RedDow, which is the world's first digital fashion focused Dow. And we invest in and incubate and purchase digital fashion items and platforms to help proliferate the narrative around the digital fashion opportunities. Hey everyone, I'm Nick Gonzalez. I'm a co -founder of UNXD and we're writing the next chapter on luxury in the Web3 space. We are probably most well known for a partnership with Dolce & Gabbana, creating the first couture collection on chain, Collezzione Genesee, of which RedDow was a buyer and participant. And most recently, we're bringing Dolce & Gabbana from kind of the Web3 space into the Web3 gaming space with the launch of Masana .xyz coming up this year, and just announced a partnership with Valentino, one of the hottest Italian fashion brands out there. My name is Derek Edwards. I'm a managing partner at Collab Currency. We're an early stage Web3 investment group. We invest in some of the leading consumer Web3 projects at the seed stage. So some of my favorite products, things like Artblocks and Super Rare and Gallery, and also a co -founding member of Tribute Dow, which is focused on fashion and digital fashion and Web3. And then related to digital fashion, early stage investor and some of the products that are helping build out this industry. So things like IYK and 90CC and Shibuya Brand and Ready Player Me and things like this. So great panel here. Very excited for the combo. Awesome. And so I want to set the stage because you were all involved in that sort of iconic doge crown sale. And that was historic. I think it was over 400 ETH you bought for. And that was 2021, real high peak. And how has things changed since that moment for you? How are things evolved? We're two years from that. Obviously, the sales of that magnitude aren't happening right now. But, you know, do you think we're going to return to that? Where have we gone? And whoever wants to start up on that. Do you want to provide context on what it was? Yeah. So the doge crown is more than just, I guess, a meme. It was an actual physical item that was part of the Collecioni Genesee Drop that was based around Altamota 2021. It's a really fantastic crown. I think if we have a photo of it, that's probably going to come up. Both a physical and digital item. And this was really when we were creating something with Dolce & Gabbana, we really wanted to make something that started at the pinnacle of what fashion was for the brand. So we started with Altamota. So with the couture collection that they did. And this was a really beautiful piece inspired by the city of Venice and the doge palace that's there. And it had this very nice crossover with doge and doge coin. So it was a little bit of a wink and a nod, but was really exciting to collectors of both fashion and the Web3 space. And that's, I think, where we saw when physical and digital were combining. That intersection that's happening technically also happened in the cultural space as well, as we saw so many people in Web3 looking for the next phase of what was happening once you could tokenize items. Yeah. And as a member of Red Dow, we were most excited. This was our inaugural purchase. So we purchased the crown and the auction and also two of the jackets that were just shown. The jackets are purely digital. And this is the first time in history that a high end luxury fashion brand launched any initiatives in Web3. So that was really our moment entering into Web3 from the luxury standpoint. And at Red, we were really excited about that purchase. I know I was going to say like from an investment point of view, sort of like, you know, what was yours? Yeah, so I'll just say like since 2021, which is, I think, the question you teed up, I would say behaviorally, I think I continue to see the same things that I was looking for in 2023 that I was in 2021. I mean, this idea of digital objects having value, I think is something that has been around for decades. So I was an early player in some of these Internet economies, things like World of Warcraft, things like Diablo 2. And there were markets that would form for digital objects, whether they were armor or swords or skins. And these would be priced off market. But these digital objects didn't live on a trust -minimized database like a blockchain. They lived on a server, a private database. And over decades, we've continued to see behaviorally the same things happen. So just listen to this awesome talk right before this. There's Spencer from Yuga who referenced Counter -Strike skins, which continue to sell tens of millions of dollars worth of skins every single quarter. And these are not objects that live on a blockchain. These are objects that live on a private database. But there's still a demand and a growing demand by younger audiences to want to flex, to want to own, to want to curate their identity in these digital spaces. And so things like this drop and things like a lot of the images that you'll see up here is really just sliding into this grand trend line of younger audiences wanting to participate meaningfully inside of these digital economies in ways that help shape and inform their identity. And so I have seen nothing over the last two years than an acceleration towards these behaviors and couldn't be more excited about the things that are being worked on to optimize around this. I think it's a really interesting point you made around the Counter -Strike from the last thing. And we've seen that there's been black markets for skins, but they're not on chain. And this is a way to have these verifiable, legitimate things. And I think that's one of the things that I think is interesting about bringing Web3 to fashion is that ability to have providence. So is that something that drew Dolce & Gabbana to the project? 100%. I think it's a question that comes up with every fashion brand, particularly a luxury brand that we work with. If you're creating an item that is so exclusive and so valuable, if it's a one -of -one in real life, now it can be a one -of -one digitally as well. And that providence is stored on the blockchain. So now, Red Dow and the other buyers of Cholezion and Genesee have that piece forever for as long as Ethereum is operating. I hope it does. I'm not worried about Ethereum. Yeah. And then now that's expanding even further, more and more into the digital space. So I think if 2021 was about couture for us, 2022 was about ready -to -wear, and then now in 2023 is really about expanding into that gaming realm, that digital kind of looking towards what's going on in the digital space and helping enhance those experiences. I think we always say that people spend their money where they spend their time, and people are spending more and more time on gaming than they ever had before. You're looking at a quarter of a trillion dollar industry that has about 50 billion in cosmetics every year. It's going to be relevant, just like emerging markets were relevant to fashion brands as buyers coming out of China, coming out of all around the world. The same thing is going to happen in gaming. People are going to want to enhance their experience of those games. They're going to want to connect to those communities. And fashion is part of that. Great. And what do you say to sort of the skeptics of the people who are sort of saying like, well, that seems like a lot of money to spend on something that I can't physically hold. And we'll come back to the physical part of it. Like there are the connected pieces. No, Megan, go for it. I'll pick up. Megan. Well, you know, if you look at the amount of people in the world that are, we're all netizens basically. There's over 4 billion people using social media. And, you know, I think social media and gaming are going to merge into this social reality. And as we get to device disruption from our smartphones handheld, some near eye wearable, or even a brain computer interface chip, I think that, you know, the dematerialization of physical reality that's happening will be incremental over the next 10 or 15 years. So the generations that say, you know, digital is not as important as the physical, this really doesn't speak to them. This is more for the younger generations. And I feel like as millennials, we're sort of the bridge between, you know, the old paradigm and this new paradigm and the wave of dematerialization. Yeah, brilliant. The only other thing I would add is we're heading on a one way train right now. And it's like the convergence of multiple trend lines. It's the fact that a younger demographic wants to curate their identity in digital spaces more than they want to curate it in physical spaces. And those represent like this generation's next consumers for these objects. The second is the hardware constraints are now being relaxed, such that more immersive experiences around how you shape your identity can be enjoyed by larger groups of people. And as Megan said, we're just spending more of our time in these digital environments than we ever have. I mean, I've been saying this for years, but we've already been in a metaverse light. We are on Zoom calls all day. We're on Twitter. We're on Facebook taking photos of our physical self so we can curate our digital identity. We're already doing behaviorally the things that an immersive metaverse like environment should look like. It's just all built on private databases and it's all being patched together by bad technology. But the truth is blockchains are just a settlement layer for digital ownership. All of the information that we're using on these private databases will one day live on trust minimized databases for the benefits that we all know. There's interoperability, there's composability, there's price discovery. And these trend lines are all converging very quickly. And over time, I think it'll be shocking when folks start realizing a non -trivial amount of the world's GDP is going to run on blockchains and it's going to be digital objects and digital value. Yeah. And that really brings up something Megan, I know you've posed in virtual fashion. Can you speak a little bit about where does that come from and how do you see that growing? Well, it's still very early, but one of our portfolio companies, Dress X, they use 15 different use cases for digital fashion, which is the most out of any digital fashion company that exists. And just to sort of show their capabilities, I was the first human to wear a digital fashion NFT on live television in 2021. And then I was also the first human to be featured on the cover of a magazine wearing high -end luxury fashion. So Fendi let us superimpose digital clothing onto the photos of me. And those are just two ways that someone can use digital fashion, but people are valuing their digital identities more than their physical. And as we begin to value our digital more and more, we'll really care about the way that it looks and how we're able to show our ownership of items. Because today, the outfit that I'm wearing, the designer has no idea where I'm wearing it, who's seeing it, where it's being posted. But all of that post -sale consumer data and analytics can be now collected, put on chain, and then hopefully the wearer can be compensated. So there is definitely a lot of business models and new business model disruption that will come out of all of these use cases. Yeah, I think that really touches on also something I think we touched on when we chatted before, that idea that you start to build a community. And how is that something into all of what you're working on, but that you do get to know, not just someone who walks in the store or hands over a credit card, but you actually start to build a relationship with these customers. I mean, how does that fit in to sort of, you know, Nick? Yeah, I mean, I can take that first. So I mean, I think that this is a new experience, particularly for luxury brands. They know that they missed kind of e -commerce going online. They knew that going into Web 2 was a new experience for them, which was kind of the user could go from purchasing your products online to commenting on what you're posting online. And then now it's a whole new level of interaction that's happening through Web 3. So we have a Discord server that we're managing. That's tying into Twitter. We're doing Twitter spaces. Davide Segeri from Dolce & Gabbana was just today had the first time somebody from Dolce & Gabbana was authorized to speak on behalf of the brand in our Discord space. So it's a new experience. But the power that it's tapping into is the fact that now people are not able to just become consumers of an item and have that relationship end once they leave the store or fear that they're going to be harassed through email spam or something like that. Instead, now they're truly owners of the object that they bought digitally as well. And that creates a new relationship that can be scaled through software. So you can kind of create this digital intimacy, I think, that brands have been so good doing in the real world when you visit a boutique. Now that kind of ownership can be proof of ownership so that now when they're online, I can identify somebody like Megan who's living in the future. It's seriously like you hopped in a time machine and this is what everybody's going to be like in the next five to 10 years. And we can identify all of our holders and then help give them new items or help reward the people who are the biggest collectors or promoters of the brand themselves. And this is all evolving. It's not just going to necessarily be about one thing, but it's going to be about all these things that are leveraged through the power of digital ownership. I'll anchor this to a real world example, which is 90cc. It's the hat I'm wearing right now. And inside of this hat, there's a little nine right here. There's a little NFC chip in here powered by IYK, which is a software resolver layer for NFC chips to interact between the physical and this blockchain -based database. Once you actually have that tie between a digital asset that lives on a blockchain and a physical that can be linked to it, you can start to create very interesting experiences that could be pushed to this end user. There's a proof, there's a provenance that exists now. There's also a marketplace that can form on top of these primitives such that anyone can create a module through IYK to be able to push new experiences with the creator's intent, like a game. And that game could have score, and that score could have a leaderboard. And you can now start to see how brands can communicate with their end users post -purchase in a way that just wasn't previously possible because we now have this provenance that exists on this permanent, immutable, trust -minimized global database that we've never had access to before. And that's a very powerful primitive. 90cc is really just starting to scratch the surface of what they can do there. But there's all sorts of experiences, value -add, communication that can now exist between creator and owner of a physical object in a way that just didn't exist before. And I think that's some of the tie that I think is really exciting here over the next couple of years. The chips, are they washable? Like if you have a new shirt, are you going to ruin it when you throw in the drive? I've never washed this shirt. I'm going to wear it forever. No, they are washable, retains perfect usage. So they're pretty durable. Great. But yeah, I think that that sort of interaction in real life sort of connects these communities. And back in the 2021, again, there were the ape fest. Do you see that as kind of like gatherings by brand, sort of something that's going to return? I think it's sort of faded away a bit, but do you think that's going to rise back up? I think that wallet adoption, that's one of the biggest trends that I'm watching. And I think that it's going to take more people using wallets and being able to interact with the wallet in an easy, streamlined, simple way. Right now you have like rainbow and metamask and a few others, and they're just the barrier to entry is not super streamlined and easy for consumers. And when I think about web three versus web two, we have pretty streamlined consumer capabilities when it comes to buying things online. And I think that web three will just make it much easier. So instead of logging in and typing in all of your address, your credit card payment, I think that it'll just streamline that connect wallet and then immediately take out whatever the payment is. Hopefully your address will be saved on there. And it'll be a one click purchase and streamline. And then everything you own, like the receipts of what you own are now showing in your wallet. And you can share that from a standpoint of digital flexing or just have that for different ways of optimizing ownership and taking leverage against things that you own. So imagine 30 to 40 percent of the average American's closet goes unworn. Most people don't even know what they have. That's why they're continually shopping all the time and buying new things. Well, if you have everything in one place, you can see it and then you actually know the value of your closet and the value of your assets and you can take leverage against them. This gets pretty interesting. I actually love that. My husband actually works for StickFix, which is sort of like, you know, curating things, but they don't know what you have in your closet. And that was something we've talked about in that idea that you could let people sort of help you out curating. Like, do you think that's something that would come in? So, you know, multiple brands working together to say, like, all right, everyone who wants to be in will help you create outfits, will suggest things. Do you think that's something that's possible? I mean, just came to me, but I think that's super interesting. I think A .I. will have a huge play in that. You know, the Web 2 apps like Stylebook that catalog your clothing. I think that we'll have another application and layer of A .I. in there. So, A .I. and blockchain, I think, are huge components of what we're gonna experience with Web 3 consumerism. Yeah, I totally agree. The only other thing I would add there is we're now taking these physical objects that have helped shape identity and we're creating these digital representations of them in a very inexpensive way. When you start putting what has previously been physical into a digital environment that's programmable, that actually demonstrates provenance, that can be read by anyone on a global public ledger, all of these things are gonna mix and match. These ingredients are very powerful. And new types of products and new types of services are gonna get created, many of which that leverage models and LMs to things that we can't even dream up today. But, like, the fact that we're now digitizing the world onto this public database is an unlock that I think people don't quite recognize yet. It's gonna increase the types of products, the types of services, the terms of these markets in ways that just aren't really conceivable right now. I could just actually add one thing to that. Getting back to the point about, I think I've been talking about the connection between the brand and the community, what's also within the community themselves. Now that people can identify who is a holder of a piece of Dolce & Gabbana, the DG family boxes or any of the pieces from Riel de Parallella, they can start connecting with each other. And to the point around A .I., we just had this year with Metaverse Fashion Week, we had a fashion competition where actually people from the communities were designing pieces that could then be featured as part of the Dolce & Gabbana collection there. And one of the members of our community actually used A .I. to help create, you know, he's not a designer per se in the traditional sense, but he has enough of a way around computers and enough taste that he went and used A .I. to actually generate an outfit that was good enough to be selected as one of the finalists as part of that. So it's already here, I guess is the key. It's just not evenly distributed, I guess, as I was saying. No, I think that's really interesting, especially because I think, you know, you think of luxury fashions as highly controlling of their brand image and their IP and that, you know, Web3's ESOS is decentralized. So the idea that we're starting to allow people who are proven sort of brand ambassadors or brand fans participate in the ecosystem is really interesting. Do you think we'll see more of that? Do you think there'll be some kind of, you know, real tension points? Like, I think Dolce & Gabbana is, you know, at the forefront of Valentino coming on board. Nike, you know, coming in, there's a lot of brands who are sort of like welcoming sort of that thing. You know, they had a competition that curating Instagram so they could get people in. But I'm sure there will be brands that are sort of like, you know, we're Chanel. I don't know Chanel if they're into it or not, but and we don't want that. And do you think that is against the Web3 ESOS? Like, how do we decide that deal? I think it's a spectrum. I think it's something that brands will ring fence in the way that they're comfortable with. Sometimes people interject into social media and don't want comments. So they, you know, turn those off on the different platforms, but then they lose out on all these other great interactions. Dolce & Gabbana has been very forward thinking and as a consequence, they reap the rewards of that. So I think it's going to come down to the brand themselves, I think, as you're correctly hinting there between Chanel and others. I just wanted to add, I think it's important for people to recognize the level of success that has happened with UNXD, bringing in Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino. So if you look at luxury fashion specifically and artifacts, we would not put this in the category. But aside from artifacts, UNXD has had the most amount of revenue from a Web3 initiative with a luxury fashion brand. So I think that that's a pretty interesting data point. And I think that we're going to continue to see more and more brands enter the space as the use cases expand beyond just speculative asset investing and beyond just gaming. Yeah. And I'll add one thing, which is I think luxury fashion is a category that will be immense and will be valuable. And these are pioneers of what's happening in that space right now. But I will also say that fashion isn't just luxury. Right. And I wouldn't call myself a luxurious person. I'm wearing chucks right now. But this was all a curated choice when I woke up this morning to wear this CyberRucker shirt and these jeans and these shoes. And that choice is a choice of fashion. In the same way that me using a CryptoPunk on my profile photo with a MeVit behind it and a ChromieSquiggle flying behind me is a choice to curate and present my digital self. And there's going to be lots of those choices and lots of brands are going to start interacting with Web3 in a way that is what I believe to be fashion, even if it doesn't fit into the category of luxury fashion. And so I think this technology is very democratic. It's very open. It's very permissionless. But I think the thing that I want to convey is just a slight reframing is, you know, we all woke up this morning and made decisions to curate our identities and ourselves. And this technology will allow us to do that, curate ourselves in a digital way to a global audience. And those decisions, by their very nature, are fashion decisions and identity decisions. And this is a technology that will expand to all brands. I love that. And I think that's very true. And it sort of speaks to the democratization, but you know, it does allow people to sort of curate it on a much broader spectrum than just, you know, high end luxury fashion. I know that is the title here, but I do think fashion is broader than that one aspect. And do you think, and we talked a little bit about this, that there is sort of the ability, I know that, you know, I told you about ready to wear, but they're not quite like, you know, consumer mass market. But do you think that this in the future would open up more opportunities for aspirational people? Like we talked before, I copied a Dolce & Gabbana gown for my prom dress because I couldn't afford the real one. I had the dressmaker make it. But, you know, I would have loved to have been able to buy in now's today's world, you know, a digital version of the real dress to actually present, even if I can't afford the physical dress. And sort of where do you think we are going to fall on that sort of spectrum? I mean, we're seeing not just luxury, but as Derek alluded to, fashion is more than just that. And Web3, digital fashion specifically, more natively is very fantastical, gamified, augmented. And, you know, you could have things flying around you or wings in aspects that the physical really restricts you and restrains you from experiencing. So it's more of an experiential product that is being created. And we're seeing a lot of brands, not just 9DCC, but Psyche, actually, Alistair Hunt is building out a whole platform for digital fashion natives to be able to expand just digitally and not so much connected to the physical. So there's, I think, a huge opportunity for digital fashion native designers. Steffi Fong is another one who's really great. So, again, as we expand and explore more of our digital identities, we'll see more and more people filling their digital closets with digital fashion. What are you most excited about? What are the things we'll think we'll see in the next year, two years that you think we really need to keep an eye on? I think this intersection between physical and digital I think is incredibly powerful. And I think the primitives have now been kind of built and the standards are getting created for some really interesting stuff, some very meaty stuff as it relates to the physical and the digital to get created. I think projects to keep an eye on are for sure 9DCC, what G -Money is doing, IYK, Tribute -Brand .com is coming out with a very compelling drop at that intersection over in the next couple of weeks. So make sure to follow along there. And then just follow anything these two are doing. They're the gurus. I think the thing I'm most excited about is the next evolution of what we're doing with Dolce & Gabbana right now. And, of course, Valentino coming up towards the end of the year. That's Masana .xyz. And that's really a movement from what we're doing with Couture to Ready to Wear and then now into the web through gaming and adding a digital identity to each of the holders in our community. And that's something I think I'm really excited by. It's a cultural movement, not just a technological one. And it's where we're going to help bring more storytelling, I think, to Dolce & Gabbana and more interactivity in the digital space than people have ever seen before. Well, for me, as an investor in the blockchain space for over the last 10 years, it's most exciting to see wallets and wallets that have easy UI and UX come to bring more people in. And I think that the use case of digital fashion will help proliferate the adoption of Web3 and blockchain. I'll add one last thing. I swear I promised the last thing, which is I think a big, big tailwind over the next 12, 18 months is gaming and really great Web3 games getting created. And some of the identity things that I discussed previously being a core part of what makes Web3 ownership and Web3 assets powerful and a very powerful value prop. And I think we're at the point now where some of these digital fashion, the bridge to understanding this stuff is going to come through some of these immersive experiences that look like games and Web3 games. Yeah, I completely agree. Well, thank you all so much for joining me. Thank you.
"steffi" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Show podcast. And welcome back. I appreciate you being here and bubba is up next. We'll show you, Paul. Baba. Randy. Hey man, you forced my hand, Paul. I was four off getting a Twitter account for a long time. But I found that the only way I could help push this bracket I had to get an account. So I'm pushing cat daddy and Jerome to the front, brother. I'm about to, I'm about to get rid of my Twitter account the way things are going. Yeah, I hated to have to create one course I might get rid of it after this. Let me tell you something about your Twitter account, bob, but you don't have to look at it. Yeah, thank God. Hey, I got a question for you though. Okay. Well, yeah. I mean, do I have a choice? I mean, I felt like. They already dropped my car a couple times today and just making sure I wasn't getting sent to neighbor neighbor laying bubba. You are Randy's closest friend among our callers, so you're never going anywhere. A Randy man, brother, hey, dad, but it's hard this new offensive coordinator. I was reading the article and he stated somewhere that they were wanting to run a Josh high for Tennessee style offense. Do you think he can pull that off? No. Yeah, I don't either. I mean, this guy may be Lincoln Riley's brother, but he's not Lincoln Riley. True. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. And you know, I'm as a boy probably a pretty good coach, but I don't see him putting that together. And by the way, do you know what you need for a Josh hypo offense? Josh, hi Paul. Well, you do need Josh hyper, but you also need a quarterback that understands it. Yeah, that's true too, but I'm going to tell you something about hype on his staff. They're developing these guys. You don't call it he inherited from cornbury. And as a transfer portal, he did take a bunch of 5 stars and go and leave it in two last year. You're right. I forgot to tell you. I'll tell you what I saw the other day. I was reading. I think it was mandel. And he had a hot seat column of all the coaches and are you ready for this one? Let me see if you can grab this for me. Making his second appearance on the hot seat column, he has gone, I can't remember that like three and 9, four and 8, two in ten, who is he? Do you know who he is? Oh, Butch Jones. Yeah, yeah, but yeah. Is there anybody surprised at which shows is once again on the hot seat in college football? Yeah, a bunch, Jones should even be coaching high school. He needs to be down there with Nick analyzing symptoms. He was so good at that, too. Yeah, all he wanted to do is go smoke a seagull or because he was never going to smoke one coach in Tennessee. Thank you, bubba. Bubba just ran out of gas. I've done it all. Hey, thank you, bob, but Phil is up next in Georgia. Hello Phil. How you doing, coach how's everything? Go away, man. It is great. Thank you for checking in with me. Yes, sir. You and you keep it ran to straight, I hope. We're doing great. So look, look here, coach the mask or something. Okay. How much control does the head coach of a program have over the scheduling of their team? None. I had often wondered about that. Well, I'm a Georgia fan, but I also, I'm a big fan of Alabama and now as soon as I enter you feel the top flight coaches, the savings, the Kirby smarts, people like that. They will be consulted by the athletic director saying, okay, we have a chance at playing Clemson next year. Do you want to do that? But ultimately, they have nothing to do with the SEC schedules. And they are the less than the elite coaches don't have any say so, because those are all financial situations. But the top coaches would be will be consulted. Well, here's where I was going with this. Okay. I get so tired of year after year after year. Of hearing people criticize Georgia on criticized Alabama. Because of the people on their schedule, they don't think that we play strong enough teams. And I'm first to admit you have, you know, some of us schedule some of the teams we play, they're not a big drum. And I understand that. But to me, if I was, if I was in charge of that, it would come down to a thing of trust for me. Well, you know, speaking of Georgia though, Georgia is probably played the toughest schedule of anybody non conference. They had Notre-Dame. They had a home at home with Notre-Dame. They played Clemson a couple of times. Oregon, they were supposed to play Oklahoma this year, but that game had to be scrapped. And that's why everyone is going to beat up on Georgia for its schedule this year, and they had nothing to do with it. They had Oklahoma on the schedule. Well, and I'd like to look at it from this point. I think to me, to me, if I'm the head guy at Alabama, if I'm the head guy, Georgia, it comes down to a thing of trust. It's not like the third quarterback taking an ugly girl to the prom. You can bet your bet your last meal. The girls got some money. You know. But it would come down to the thing with me of trust if I'm the head guy Alabama and UFC calls me and wants to play or Ohio State calls or Michigan or whoever. Well, with out with the non conference schedules having such a big part in the ranking and determination on who gets into the playoffs, you know, that I would have to say that I would have really had to trust. Yeah, you know, I think when you play a big time non conference opponent, I think it helps you more than it hurts you, because I mean, I remember when we get into the playoff conversation and this will be the last year we do that. A lot of times you'll talk about, well, they play so and so, but it was a close game. Thank you very much for your call. Andy is an Arkansas good afternoon, Andy. Hey, Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. I won't do that. Talk me through some of my thought process. First of all, let me go back in history a little bit, which we're saying, how could NATO allow three for 27 on 3.3? But it just wasn't working and to me. Just a little bit of arrogance. And we get a lot of these things on top tier coaches doing that. And also we saw that arrogance exhibited on display during the jamia hairstyle. And I want to talk a little bit on NIL if I may. Your conversation was about solitary and the caller said, you know, why would you take four people out and, you know, put people in, yes, there's all the parameters you talked about. I think, because of the NFL, you got to play these guys. Are they going to walk? We're going to transfer. You got to find a way to fit them in a game, and also there's a lot of coaching, you're going to figure out what's got, does not work. But I think with the NIL era, it's a double edged sword. And you got to get those players in. You know they will transfer.

"I've been a busy one so far a couple of trips to Dallas for the women's final four and Mitch is in South Carolina. Hello, Mitch. Hey, Paul. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you. Are you kidding to the hypnotoad? I think so, yes. I mean, honestly, these people call in with a one way and by the time you have finished the car, you have changed their way of thinking completely. Logan called in just a little while ago. Now, ten minutes before he called, you made the comment that three or four clergy have called about Jim. First thing Logan says, Paul, have you noticed that three or four clergy car in? And then the ask you was this upcoming game with South Carolina and the two stars reminiscent of magic and Larry Bird. And you sit and you could tell he thought it was. And then you said no because of the name value. And sure enough he switches and agrees with you. You do that to so many people, so often. Well, Mitch, my goal is not to change people's minds, but I think sometimes I think in Mitch's case, he really didn't, once he heard someone explain why that was a bad comparison without me saying that was a bad comparison. He felt the best thing to do was let go of his half baked theory. Well, I mean, I'm just saying, you do it daily on a daily basis. But that's what makes the older colors somewhat more popular. They will not back off with their okay, I hear what you're saying. They will. And by the way, I'm not really trying to, I mean, he asked me the opinion. The difference is the older college. You know what they do or don't do. They don't ask my opinion. They don't care. That's true. Because they've already, they've already made up their minds, and. You don't hear, you don't hear the artists from Tuscaloosa ever saying, now what do you think? Now, he will say, because he's insecure, he'll he'll say, no, you agree with me, don't you? And you politely do. Well, yeah, have you ever had a friend, Mitch, or have any of any kind, and the easiest thing to do is just to nod your head and say, oh yeah, that's right. Well, there's kind of like that old saying, if you had a friend that had something sticking out of their nose, would you tell them? Yeah. If it was Jim, I would not, by the way. I guess you're right. But I just wanted to find out where you have this hypnotism medicine. I want some of it. Well, Mitch, I'll be happy to share it with you. It's not a state secret what we do here. This is a mind altering show. Okay, thank you much and you have a good day. Mitch, you be well. Thanks. Take care of yourself. Steve is up next in Kentucky. Hello, Steve. Hey, how you doing? Very well. Thank you. Thank you for taking my call. I want to disagree with you on something. I'm older and I respect your opinion. Okay. I'm in my 70s. What I'd like to know is Paul. Watching the NCAA tournament. I watched you take those barns at times substitute full players. And the same thing with calipari. Now, I've been watching basketball for 60 years. And it's my humble opinion. That you play the 5 best you got as much as you can. I watched Iowa's fake girls. Most of them go the whole game. Now don't you think these coaches make in 6 million bucks a year? Are you on a little too much with our players? You're a thing. No, I agree with you on that completely. I think the only reason you would not play them is either early foul trouble or somebody is nursing an injury or somebody just needs a very quick break. Quick. I've got a 100%. I agree in half. I came like that to come with kids and scores. 20 7 points won that. He already saw the floor of the next. Was he mad at him? Yeah, I don't know. You might take a player who's played the first 17, 18 minutes of the half. I mean, you might take them out just to give them an extra 5 or ten minutes. For the second half. But listen, there are knives when I have no idea what college doing. And I'm not sure he does. In this day and time, with a TV timeout, shall we get 5, man? Oh yeah. And then, especially at the end, no player should be tired at the end of the game because the last three minutes of the game takes an hour. Absolutely. Well, I didn't understand, because every time I look up, the shiba was down there on the blocks open. He had moved his man out. And Kentucky's guards don't get him the ball. No. I put the student manager in and tell him, you better throw him the ball. Steve, I agree. By the way, we agree on most of it. So what's the view on what's the view on Cal right now after two early exits in a row? I think you want to go somewhere and recruit and click go. I don't think he can coach. He's a hell of a recruiter. Yeah. But he gets some wildest combinations out there. I have a song. Can't they can't, I would think he's got God. I know he's got really good assistance. Can't somebody just say Cal at halftime stay in the locker room and we'll handle it from here, okay? Yeah. We got it. You sit in the locker room and set up some recruiting visits while we coach the game. You've got the answer. That's the answer right there. The one other thing quickly. I remember the old age. That's right. I have a whole game. Oh, sure. Bernie and I already played the whole game. You sure did. Or they just don't know how to play them now. No, I don't think they're out of shape. I mean, if you're 19 years old and you play college basketball, you're in shape. I mean, that's basketball. You can loaf off in football because there's only X number of plays, but you can't, you can't be out of shape in basketball. I agree with everything you've said completely. As they want to pay me 1 million hours and take a look at Kentucky. You can't be better results. Yeah. Now listen, I mean, you can be you can be out of shape in a lot of things and have a moderate amount of success. Namely, being a talk show host. I mean, I'm gasping for breath right now after that call. We'll take a short break. More of your phone calls right after this. You are listening to the Paul finebaum

"Well, had he not been hurt, let's think about where Tennessee would have been. I'm going back to the South Carolina game. I don't think his injury cost him that game if I remember correctly. So yeah, the game, it was already trending toward a blowout. So that game would have would have certainly, I don't think he would have won the Heisman with that loss. I think that would have been too much for him to handle on top of the Georgia game, which hurt him. So no, the answer is I don't think he would have. Right. Do you think, okay, so I guess my next question would be, do you think that he would be the better NFL quarterback out of everybody if he wouldn't have got hurt? No. I don't think anyone could have done anything to supplant Bryce young from that position now. The only the only contender is CJ Stroud. And I think that's a more of a fit, depending on your particular franchise. But to me, as a fan, I'm not an expert in terms of the NFL scouting. Bryce young is the best quarterback in the class. I mean, I don't necessarily disagree with you. I just want to see what you said about hooker. Is the NIL deals are they causing Alabama to go on a downhill slide because if we're living in the now and not going off of resumes, I mean, mama's hurting and smart taking over. Well, miss, I think there are some people that believe you on that. I don't think we know the answer yet. And some would push back and say, listen, you just got to be saying that, but Alabama had the best recruiting class in the country. So how did they have that? How did they have the best recruiting class? Yeah, if Kirby smart has taken over. Well, I think they didn't get the quarterback from somewhere else. What was the Senate? I don't think they got a quarterback from somewhere else. Okay. Well, I might be wrong, but I do know that they won the last two championships. That's why I was just saying that. Well, no, I understand what you're saying, but I think if Alabama had plummeted in recruiting, now remember, the recruiting was mostly wrapped up before the end of the season. So I think the better question is this. What happens next year? And already, and I know we are way too early to start proclaiming champions for next year in recruiting, but Georgia is having an epic early class in terms of commitment. So that's where I'm interested in. Not so much because these things tend to trail a year or two down the road. So what happens to Alabama in the next class or the class after that? And really, most important, what happens to them on the field, if they can get back in the playoff this year, if they can undo what happened last year, then that I think all the concern about Alabama's future is unwarranted. But if they don't get back, then you've got something to talk about. Then that would mean that it would be three years that Alabama has not won a title. And that would be the first time in the Saban tenure that it has gone that long. He's had a couple of two year gaps, but not a three year gap. Yeah, I agree. Talking about next year's class, no cats are going to be strong next year. Thanks, Paul for taking the call. Thank you, miss. Matt is up next in Atlanta. Hello. Hey, Paul.

"Podcast. Welcome back AC is up next. Good afternoon. Good afternoon, sir. Thank you so much for taking my call. Thank you. Absolutely. Well, mister fine bomb after what happened on Tuesday night, you really want Jim to be in that bracket. You should think about me. I never dropped any bombs on air. I'm just giving you just piece of advice. I mean, come on, man. You got to find someone to replace them to be me could be anyone who likes to choose. I mean, that's the way how I feel. But that's your decision because you're the judge. And I'm just I'm in the lawyer to let you know what you should be doing. I have a question for you before I hang up. I don't want to waste too much time. My question is, since there's no football season, what do you normally do on weekends, other than drinking beer with Randy heritage? I know this is exactly what you're going to expect. Other than drinking beer or by the way, it's a bit more. 54 challah. I think you get you confused with somebody else, Randy. But anyway, we will. Yeah, his name is not heritage, by the way. There is a Randy heritage here, though. Yes. You're not random. Okay. I just wondered. I thought that you were a little tall for him. Gary is up next. A hello, Gary. Hey, the whole thing's back up. Good afternoon. Thank you. I got a question. I don't hear a lot of people doing a comparison, but with Anthony Richardson climbing up draft boards. Can you see a little comparison between him and Joe Milton? Well, I think Anthony Richardson has more innate talent, but I think we need to see consistency out of Joe Milton. And that's completely agreed, like I said, I'm a die hard Tennessee van. But I've seen, I'm also like a big critic to also, I've seen Joe Milton's basement, but I went to the Vanderbilt game last year. And I've never seen a quarterback stand flat foot and just kind of flick it like. He wasn't even trying to throw it 75 yards, you know? If he gets his sailing, he could be no, I totally agree. And I didn't see the pro day today, but I still think Antony Richard is a gamble. It may turn out to be Lamar Jackson. He may also turn out to be a bust. Right. I agree. One other question, kind of a little statement. Usually we play Georgia at the beginning of the year. Am I correct? Tennessee. Yeah, here's what happened. That game, Georgia auburn used to be the last SEC game of the year for Georgia. They moved that game earlier in the year now. Where is auburn on the Tennessee schedule now is Georgia at the end. So that was a big switch. I think the auburn now for Georgia is early. I don't know what Tennessee got in its place. So yeah, there it is. I'm thinking that's normally around the time of the where the auburn game is. That used to be where the Tennessee game was. Give or take a week or two. And that's really been the switch. I think it was done for drama where the Tennessee Georgia game is more important to the SEC east, obviously than a game against the west. And it looms now as one of the, you know, whether it ends up being the game of the year, it certainly was last year. Remember last year, it was about two weeks earlier. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Ken is up next. Can good afternoon. Hey, Paul. A wonderful, great to hear from you again. Good to hear from you, Paul, listen. I've been listening last few days with about Dwayne over there in new Orleans. I mean, in Los Angeles. You know that boy there, I think he needs some psychiatric care they apologize. I really do. I think he needs to be okay. People have been talking about him, and I'm doing the same, but I think if you get to talk to him again, you might want to ask him, look, can we give you some help, my Friends? We are not equipped to give every color psychological help. Now, we do perform that service for a number of them. But I don't think we could handle him. I think he needs something that we don't have. Do we have electric shock? Okay. Now we don't have that. Well, I've been listening to Paul and I don't want you to listen a lot during the basketball, so he's an I'm just not a basketball fan, however. I listened to the way. Well, I have to say this about Dwayne. He is merged as one of the most exciting callers we have. So we kid with him, but we really admire what he brings to the table. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it very, very much. Let's check in with Michael and Tennessee. Hello, Michael. Hey, hey. Yes, sir. You sound great. Thank you. I also wanted to know about Caleb was. Do you think coach Barnes would be over there at Tennessee? It would be interesting to get him out of the portal. From the University of Kansas, North Carolina. Yeah, I bet they would be interested in him. Is he going to leave? I haven't seen that. Yeah, Caleb, what up from North Carolina? He entered the transport for a couple of days ago. Okay. Yeah. I would say I would think he would be a good prospect. Thank you for the call. Appreciate it. Rick Barnes, knows how to identify talent. Myth is up next in Kentucky. Hello. Hey, Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you. Hi, I'm going to ask you about the hooker kid. The quarterback for Tennessee.

I'm going back to the South Carolina game.

"And the things I kept on hearing and the reports I kept in hearing were, you know, how bad his backhand was, but I wasn't hearing the good things. You know, human nature think what's wrong. So I can remember the moment like it was yesterday. We're in Bordeaux at the challenger in Bordeaux, and I just had this aha moment. And I said, Stevie, what if we go with the fact that your backhand slices amazing? I mean, look at Steffi Graf. Let's model after Steffi Graf, okay? She and Martina, I mean, let's look at the ones that are have been like world world class athletes with a slice backhand. And it was really simple like I wanted him to hit a really heavy nasty slice and the guys would lift and give the ball air and then here comes the forehand. Right. So here comes the forehand. And then we encouraged him because he has a really good one handed backhand. He really should have been a one hander. And the guys, I'll just approach to that side. Well, here comes the one hander pass them and now guys are like, what is going on? And so it was that moment with Stevie and Bordeaux, your backhand slices amazing. Let's say it's amazing because it is amazing. So kind of flip the script on how we thought about that mind space on that wing. And 21 in the world. He was the number one ranked American for a week. Has scores of massive wins. And, you know, he's an amazing competitor. You don't win 72 matches in a row at the end of your college career. And I mean, that's amazing. 72 in a row. I mean, I don't know if I could do anything 72 times in a row. So he had that gene, and then now it's just lean on that competitive fire and that competitive spirit. And with Sam, so I knew Sam for a long period of time because when I was coaching John, he pled doubles with Sam a lot. So it was David nankin was the only USTA on the road at that time. So it was Sam and David, John and myself, and we slept all over the world together. So I got to know Sam, well. So I had the luxury of hitting the ground running with Sam. And Sam is the funniest. I mean, he's like Larry David. I mean, every day, something crazy happens in his life that is like a TV screen. It's the funniest thing in the world. So in Sam is a very docile creature. He's very, he's very easygoing. He's very soft and well spoken. He's just a very gentle man. And I went on the lib one time. We're playing an Acapulco and he's playing, he's playing Kyle Edmund first round. And Sam was kind of getting in his own way, right? And I took a chance and I said, Sam, and I gave

Obviously the last tournament. I got injured but I stated my zone. I didn't really pay attention on what was going around me and i think that was the key for me But then you know twenty twenty head. I didn't play anything in twenty twenty. It was just like completely year off which is super rare especially at that age like that But that's another story.

"Completed that was on august thirteenth. Eighteen twenty six leeann x. Work continues to be part of modern medicine. He was the first to describe. Micro juror. Cirrhosis of the liver which is still known as les psoriasis. And his extensive writing on pulmonary classifications is still used. He advanced the medical community's understanding of pneumonia emphysema and other conditions. There's a coda to this part of the story. Though in terms of how linak was viewed just a decade after he died in eighteen thirty eight english language translation of his treatise on the diseases of the chest and on media asked the translator included some interesting discussion about lennox writings about himself. The translator's note states in the first paragraph quote the original treatise will remain imperishable monument of the genius and industry of its author and the discovery. Of which treats will entitle him to a distinguished rank among the benefactors of mankind as a standard work on the pathology diagnosis of the diseases of the chest. It is not only without an equal but may be considered as almost perfect in. Its kind but then a couple of paragraphs down after continuing to mention the importance of escalation. The same translator writes quote at the same time. It would be exacting too much from the weakness of humanity to expect that the author of media escalation should in no case have yielded enthusiasm naturally inspired by the consciousness of so great a discovery. And if a few passages of his book he should be found to somewhat exaggerate the actual or relative importance of his method or even sometimes to appear rather as the partisan than the historian of the stethoscope. I am sure that a fault so venial and in such a man ought not to be visited by heavy censure essentially the says that the translator thinks that lay puffing up the importance of his invention. But but it's also okay because he really was pretty great and he did advanced medicine with his work. It's a fascinating way to frame all this and it seems like maybe he's trying to pre address critics of laya next and see also mentions that some people claim to have tried the stethoscope and found it unhelpful. Just a glimpse into this perception of this device while it was still in its infancy after lay death. Yeah he A lot of doctors were super into it but there were some that were like. I tried to listen. I didn't get anything so it's just kind of an interesting thing to know that. There was a little bit of controversy as much as as it does sound in a lot of ways like the medical community pretty quickly picked it up but you may be wondering what came of this invention Because it obviously took a number of additional turns as it developed into the tool that we see commonly in use today.

I really liked his cleverness so i've tried to sometimes use like Just a clever random little things that he was able to use his lyrics to his point across. Let's try to do that. That's kind of the influence data. He really sparked but yeah he's a he's a man so he inferences approached writing these. Yeah it's more on the riding thing. But i definitely you know.

But when it came to wimbledon the day the prussia he was particularly from the media and the fact that he got to walk. i think four four semifinals. pretty good going so Yeah i think it would have to be a tim. Henman think adams questioned is hard. Because i think you'd have to. I sit down with all of the people who need all of as many as you could. I got another question for you as well with. This is from jay on twitter. She said what's the best way to watch your match.

I'm no expert in the world of tennis. Don't profess to be You know any sort of top dog intensive what i would right but this is meant to be and i think why it works is a real walk down memory lane and a fun Look back at some of the games of happened at wimbledon.

Artists Create E-Waste 'Mount Recyclemore' for G7
"Prepared to meet in Cornwall in southwest England, a huge sculpture of their heads in the style of Mount Rushmore in the U. S has been built close to where they're staying. Named.

The Mount Rushmore National Memorial features the heads of four U. S presidents carved into the rock face in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Now ahead of the G seven meeting and looming more than two stories high. The faces of Boris Johnson, Emmanuel Macron, Joe Biden and Angela Merkel stare out across the Cornish landscape constructed entirely of bits of metal circuit boards, TV screens and smartphones. They're joined by you should Asuka Mario Draghi and Justin Trudeau to make the mountain structure close to the hotel where world leaders will be staying in the English countryside. These people who live near the G seven summit venue, watch the faces being built seen it develop over the last few days, and it's what they've done is schism. Amazing. I think it's a good way of Sort of highlighting just how much the waste there is in the oceans, and hopefully we'll send a good message over to G seven leaders just about we really need to clean the planet up artists Joe Russian Alex Wreckage say they created the sculpture to highlight the huge amount of tech and gadgets that go UN recycled globally each year, with Joe explaining the logic behind depicting the world leaders united They like more to talk to each other and work out a plan that isn't just shifting the problem from one country to another, but actually is a plan. We will work on together, which is how to deal with this waste and how to stop producing so much waste and how to recycle things in these. All these issues have got to be dealt with globally. They can't be dealt with nationally because that's where the problem is. According to the UN at the 53 Million tons of electronic waste generated globally each year, will more than double by 2050, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the world.

How the state of the oil and gas industry affects the city of Houston
"As you may have heard earlier on morning edition. Oil giants were expected to make up some of their financial losses in the last quarter of twenty twenty but final earnings reports released. This week show. That was definitely not the case. Texas headquartered exxon mobil reported a fourth-quarter loss of more than twenty billion dollars. Bp which has its headquarters here in houston recorded a full year loss of five point. Seven billion houston headquartered conaco phillips two point seven billion lost in twenty twenty demand for crude oil dried up last year after officials called for lockdowns and travel restrictions due to the pandemic and there was already a glut in domestic supply not a good equation for the industry and the news may not be much better for oil and gas so far in twenty twenty one to discuss. Why and how it may affect houston. We're joined now by energy writer lawrence steffi. Who's the managing director for thirty points strategies. A writer at large for texas monthly and columnist for energy voice dot com lauren. Good morning good morning greg. Thanks for having me glad to have you with us. The pandemic has obviously played a big role in revenue loss for many companies. How specifically has it impacted the oil and gas industry over the last year. Well i mean you just discussed the earnings numbers and i think that that's You know one of the big impacts. I mean we've had this very unique situation over the past year where we've had an environment of low prices and low demand which is really pretty unique in the history of the industry and it's It's good a lot of companies in pretty tough spot. Does it also signal what we may see as sort of the ongoing future for this industry. Yeah i think there's sort of two it you have to take in the shorter term. Prices have come back a little bit. we'll see if the industry has you know enough financial discipline to to hold the line on that But but i think in the short term you know as vaccines roll out and and more people are able to travel again. You're going to see a pretty big spike in the band. I think when you look beyond that though you have to sort of recognize what's happening in the market and basically a lot of things are moving against the oil and gas industry You know investment is moving away from fossil fuels government policy. Worldwide is moving away from fossil fuels and even consumer choices. Moving away from fossil fuels. And that's especially true when you look at things like gm's announcement to go to a zero emission sleep by twenty thirty five. You're gonna see more products available. That consumers will give consumers an alternative to oil and gas. You mentioned government policy. How might the biden administration help or hinder efforts of the big oil and gas companies to balanced back in the coming year. Well i think you know. The biden administration has made it very clear that they want to pull us into greener energy future. Which is fine. Where i think they're being disingenuous. Is that for for many years now. Democrats have touted. You know the idea of green jobs as being replacement for jobs will be lost in the world gas industry and i think that's really You know just not accurate. I mean there's no way you're gonna replace the number of jobs you're gonna lose You know if you just think about it. It takes fewer people. To maintain a windmill does oil rig. And so you know some of those those jobs especially on the frontlines the gas industry or not coming back And that's important because those are high paying jobs. I mean it's one of the few areas in the united states where somebody with a high school. Education can still make a six figure incomes. So those are gonna be tough jobs to replace. I think the democrats need to be more honest about that situation. The other side of the coin You see republicans digging in decrying the loss of jobs that are gonna come from these policies but you know we've lost sixty thousand jobs in texas in the oil industry in less than a year And there hasn't been a lot of leadership on the republican side. We're how we're gonna manage this transition. So i think both sides need to provide some leadership and start and stop throwing around you know ideology and And actually try to try to offer some concrete solutions for the people that will be most

New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise
Yubico Chief Solutions Officer Jerrod Chong
"Completeness. So this this three aspects to this, right. So what we WANNA make sure that we have Internet scale Internet skills usually means that you know it's the technologies available everywhere I think from the out of the journey, which is like it's the technology available everywhere I. Think we've hit that mark as you mentioned Google Microsoft, and then recently apple as well has made supporting platform. But I think it's actually the beginning of the journey. Right at the end of the day you have the platform that's ready. You have you because and keys and other indicators lives it can leverage the technology but didn't actually have the bill things that used technology and that's where I think. You need to have the adopters in the picture, right so every service that is building. A platform to get them get us to do something should not start with username an SMS. So if people's do bills solutions with username passwords and SMS or some combination that. Then you really you know we we still far away so I think. excited. Don't me get wrong with superstar? In fact I think it was two weeks ago when apple announced that The develop conference that they are going to implement even to pass with. US. Slow this year coming out in IOS, at fourteen in the safari fourteen. So they are really going full force of creating the experience. They also implemented the hardware attestation pot of both in down to a K. didn't i. which is everyone else has done and it sort of bit of a because there was some you know some people are saying this privacy concerns around that. Could you explore that a little bit with us? So at station is a way to. Really. Understand that the authenticated was able to manufacture that you actually want to do business with all your trust with. So education statements are to create a genuine like this is made by. Education statement says the this device that you are registering to the service is made by your call, and you could say, well, this iphone that you're gonNA use as your web authentic hitter is made by apple in an iphone of whatever hardware specifications. So actually, it's very valuable because. There are two things that variables. So some organizations care about the quality of the type of authentic issues. We can see it's a variety of them in the market. So you know there are some organizations that care about that like, for example, government agencies, they I care about this authenticated was made by accent had to certification level. Why things like that? So the care about that but the other thing about why people care is that You know if something happens to authenticate or let's it does. Vulnerability or does the something's going on with it? They actually need to take action now if you don't know. What authenticated was made by whom you couldn't really sort of blacklist it, and so what you end up happening is like you had to, then you know you have to make some very big policy statements they I don't allow a whole bunch of these things and then they will affect you know good good authenticate as well. So does both practical needs from an industry perspective. I some some people really do care or some organizers really do care the table level of authenticity of authenticated, and then some people do practically how do I manage some of these things but most parts I think you could implement web attend service without station right? So that's that's definitely possible Steffi better than using the passwords. So. We need to start somewhere I think apple has. Jumped a leap above some of the other. Way The privacy concern pot come into this because I only saw the headlines I didn't really dive into it. Yeah. So some authenticated vendors right they they uniquely identified the device, right? So Eddie Station to the goal what would create what fighter was that. It should be anonymous I use my syndicator wherever I want because it's one authenticated too many services. So I should be able to use it anywhere and I don't want services to core relate what I'm doing with people. That say I'm going to a site that I'm I'm very familiar with and I must say you can use different identities across multiple platforms with I'm with you right? Exactly. So if somehow people could correlate that I'm using the same authenticated me at that the density and final actually was me I mean bad things can happen. This is a privacy issue
Coronavirus: When Will the Vaccine be Ready?
"Cuba seems to have the coronavirus under control, but a lot of the world continues to struggle in the past six weeks. The number of cases worldwide has roughly doubled doubled in six weeks for many of us hope lies in finding a vaccine with me to talk about the latest vaccine research and efforts to ramp up. Production is the world's global health corresponded Alana Gordon along this week phase. Three trials started in the US for one. One of the leading vaccine contenders. What does that mean phase three trials so the biotech? Madeira I'm with the national. Institutes of Health has started this phase three trial, and what that means is thirst killing of testing of the vaccine. People recruiting some like thirty thousand people where some get placebo. Some don't because at this point. You don't really know I. Have The vaccine approach that's been developed in the lab in these smaller scale phases. Whether that actually works. You also have to figure out how the dose works and side effects and this company Moderna it's not the only candidate. No, definitely not. There's an Oxford trial with Astra Zeneca. That's already been in three. That's being tested in the UK south. Africa and Brazil Marco for overall. There's like two dozen vaccines and human trials. At this point, governments are placing their bet than some of these front runners to try to get that vaccine available. Because let's you figure out something works. You don't have the time or space in a pandemic to then be like okay. Let's start figuring out how to scale this up. What does that all mean for access as people are like predicting when vaccines going to be ready, so they can make it. The conversations are on access are happening right now, and they're complicated, and they're full of ethical issues. I talked to Monsef slowly about this. He's the chief advisor for Operation Warp speed. It's this new government program. It's really in the hot seat because it's focused on getting a vaccine for the United States by January hardest step, frankly for access is forever vaccines. And, that's what we're. Aiming to still billions of dollars are going into figuring out these different vaccines. The US has narrowed it down. He says to eight vaccine candidates, and then they've also been agreeing to manufacturing contracts, but in all of this slowly says that the companies have agreed to share data from their research on these trials with the world. For him right now is focused as if you can figure out the right combination of a vaccine approach that is a game changer for all vaccines, Frank H, the the most valuable come. Next to of course, the vaccine noses themselves is. What does it take to be protected? Because then everybody can go and do that. Alone, I understand that, but they're still. The manufacturing part of the vaccine has to get made, and then how does distribution to what countries get prioritized? I mean. If you look at the past, we shouldn't be surprised with what we're seeing. An which is that geopolitics is all over this I mean. There's a global race for a vaccine also for access to it. Countries are trying to do this for their populations, and what that means countries that have more resources wind up getting the contracts I I talked to Raji Than Kaya. He's with the company Takeda about this, but he wears hats because he has worked in the US government on Pandemic Preparedness Nausea, Global Vaccine Access he does worry about this trend with all these countries. Now that we're seeing lineup for contracts I hope is that there will? Will be very little time between when significant numbers of people say in the US, get vaccine, and when the rest of the world gets meaningful volumes of vaccine. Are there efforts being made right now to broaden vaccine access when that vaccines developed? Yeah, absolutely and Sovan Kayak is actually on the board of the Coalition for epidemic. Preparedness Innovations full is called often referred to Steffi and they're working with the world. Health, organization. The idea is to bring in as many countries as possible to lower resource and higher resource countries to come up with these contracts with manufacturers, and the idea is that twenty percent of populations would gain access to vaccine. Not all countries have signed onto this like the United States. It tends to be that the lower resource countries tend to bear the bigger burden of diseases of pandemic for longer. The world's Alana Gordon. Thanks very much. Thanks Markup.
When Zina Speaks, You Listen
"Hi everyone welcome back to the body. Serve I'm James. I'm Jonathan. We, have something very exciting today. This is kind of a surprise episode for you all and it is something that we have never done. We have had players on the show before little cute, little ten fifteen minute segments, but we've never had a former player. Sit Down with us today. The Legend Zina garrison sat down with us for an extended chat about her career about being an African American woman and tennis about today's. Today's game and just took us through some of the highlights and some of the insight. She's gained in her illustrious career, on-court and off court. We've been hoping to get this interview for a while, but the timing really couldn't have been any better in doing it. No, because today when you're it well, it's yesterday for us today. When this episode is released will be the thirtieth anniversary to the day of ladies e making. Making the Wimbledon final in one thousand nine hundred beating Monica Selous snapping a S- Thirty six match win streak in the quarter-finals beating number one Steffi Graf in the semi-finals Steffi who had reached the previous thirteen Grand Slam finals, and then playing Martinez to love in the final. We talk about healthy Gibson. XENA had a personal relationship with her. One of the stories that you've probably heard a lot of recently. Is that out? Out the Gibson was in the locker room at Wimbledon right before that that final in one thousand, nine hundred, talking about champagne, maybe adding little pressure, but it's a amazing to see these two generations of pioneering players end up in the same police at that one moment. Zena is unfiltered. She tells you what she's thinking. She says on the show that I don't always talk often, but when I do you know it's important. Aside from her Wimbledon final which you've heard a lot about recently Zina. Garrison is an Olympic gold medalist in doubles with Pam. Shriver and one thousand, nine hundred eighty eight Seoul Games. She is the bronze medalist in singles at those same games. She made the quarterfinals or better at a major fifteen times. She won three grand. Slam mixed doubles titles to at Wimbledon One Australia fourteen time WTI tight list. She is one half of the first ever all. All black WTI final in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six ECKERD, open and the court. She was the USA team captain at the two thousand eight Olympics, she was fed cup. Coach for a number of years and the founder of the Zina Garrison. Academy, which has talked literally tens of thousands of children in Houston to play tennis. The work that Xena has done over the decades with her academy is so phenomenal, and as you can imagine, these are very. Times for all kinds of businesses let alone not for profits, and if you are able to please consider donating to Zina's academy. Zina garrison dot org and make a donation. To to help the kids in Houston continued to get such fabulous instruction free of charge, yet is important to mention perhaps as a preamble to this episode a prologue you can listen to our previous episode on Zina Garrison, which was entitled Wiggle at Legs Zeno, we do ask Xena how we got started in this interview. That's a little bit of supplemental listening. But for now here's our chat with Zina and we hope you enjoy it. Thank you so much. For chatting with us now, no, no problems China stat of this Houston Corona. We don't have it's been really bad here so I was just GonNa ask. How's everything going there? Now we're have had major spikes, so it's GonNa be interesting. So, you mostly staying inside Kinda minding your business. Yeah, not really bad allergies, too so they had the African dust here last week, so when trying to be a net again. Thanks for doing this just a little bit of a preamble as to how we were kinda hoping to do it. We're just GONNA. Run through a few things of your career and get your reaction to it possibly. A Tang into some of the stuff that we may have talked about on the previous that we did as well are you guys seem like you know me so well I. Do. Now Want WanNa. Hear it from you. You've been getting so much press this last month because of the thirtieth anniversary of your Wimbledon final. Did this catch you off guard? Yeah, did really kick me off guard for for two reasons first of all that it was. It's been thirty years like I. You know. It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on. Sounds pretty cool, so this is the first time then that you're just minding your own business, and you're just brought back into tennis because of your career because of social media. Yeah, it's not what ends one guy from England that Chris Ghosn. He always puts stats on there, and so you know sometimes he'll you know bring? He makes me I tell him all the time. He keeps me relevant, but he comes up with these stats out of nowhere in plug. This one just kind of took off so I think because they don't have one with him right now. It's you know it's. It's an people's line because this is the time so.
"I'm Saying Goodbye": Maria Sharapova Retires From Tennis at Age 32
"Don't know if you share my sentiments. This was news. That is not remotely surprising. We were all expecting this. I think Most people had already pre filed. The Maria Sharapova retires column and yet I gotTa say it feels you know an hour into this but Feels a little weird definitely I. This is not like Last time we had big Sharipova News at SL which was of course it. Two Thousand Sixteen and that that was a big surprise. This like you said I think we all saw it coming. It was a matter of when and not if so for to be now is I think a pretty normal timing given whether she's going to play Indian Wells and Miami probably would have kick started her into the French and Wimbledon and then sort of. You're playing out the year at that point so for her to call it quits after all. Cheyenne this little gaps. Seems to make sense but I don't know what do you think? Yeah ranked ranked three seventy three. Something had to give here. This is a five time major champion. Who you did not think was going to play the wild card game for very long. I I guess I would perhaps suspected she would have played Indian Wells. It's an event where she's had success. It's two hours from her home in southern California she would have gotten a grand sendoff But you know this. This is I had these two competing instincts with Sharipova. What what do we know about her? She is fiercely. Driven fiercely competitive. She is and always has been. I think we can talk about this a bit later. The consummate professional and those are really dueling instincts when you're ranked three seventy three and not playing it anywhere near the level that you're accustomed to Part of you probably says I can fight through this. This is just more adversity. I can overcome. I'm better than this. I just need to work harder. I can get my body right. I can get my mind right. I can get back. I don't WanNa go out like this and another part of you says surely I can't have this indignity. I can't be losing round after round early. I'm not seated so I'm playing tough opponents. My Body's giving up on me so I think you had and they came from the same place but they're two very different ways to react to to the same core instinct and today she said enough is enough. I mean I think you're right that You know February is a strange month in tennis. And I guess you know we're we`re. There's no perfect way to retire from the sport and we see even within tennis players very differently. Some players go on this goodwill tour and some players like Caroline Wozniacki says look. I'm going to pinpoint this as my last event and go ahead and prepare your tribute reels. And I'm GonNa play this event knowing when I lose my last match. That's IT and Sharipova. We've seen other players. There's players do this as well. Sharapova pulled us out of the blue and it's it's a Wednesday and she's not at a tournament today And retired in her own way. So I don't know I mean the other. There are a number of questions that stem from this whole conversation and jump in any jump in anytime here. I mean I think the overall question when a player retires as we assess legacy I don't know particular bullet points. Jump out at you Jamie. I think I think highs and lows complicated legacy Of course is going to be attached to share over The the craziest thing I think if you look at the timing now she's ranked three hundred seventy three which says absolutely nothing about her career but to your point. I mean she was at the point now where she was trying to come back and she's nowhere even near the top one hundred You know not even winning any matches and it's it must be really hard for her honestly to you know given all that she's accomplished. I think we said thirty six. W titles obviously the five Grand Slams all these rivalries quote unquote particularly with Serena Williams which is also another interesting conversation to have but I think it was probably getting difficult for her to continue to be you know struggling and Her her legacy given you know the the MELDA NEOM and the ban will always thou always be part of her story? Yeah I think you're absolutely right and today should be happy day. Celebrate a five time major champion. I mean I was looking at her staff and I think we forget how good she was for for a variety of reasons. I think to the casual tennis fan. They were misled by two. One is the head to head with Serena that you reference. She beat Serena Breakthrough Center women. Final Two thousand four and then she loses whatever. The math twenty two is the derived. So lose eighteen nineteen matches to Serena Williams And I think that to the casual fan that we say rivalry. And then we sort of have to amend that to say with a lopsided rivalry which might be an oxymoron. The other thing about Sharipova that I and I wrote about this that I think is a great Sort of misleading bid about her is she had this regal disposition and she endorsed product after product. And it was very upscale. And it's Evian Cole Haan I remember you. I remember walking in New York and seeing her on three different billboards for three different upscale products. And there was this or of elegance. She was selling herself as much as she was a brand. She was selling sort of cosmopolitan posh elegance in yet. The tennis was. I was called her sort of tennis. Gym Rat I mean. It was not elegant tenants by any stretch and Jud admit to that and she was in her own way your own six foot one inch which she was a grinder and she was not what you call an athlete. He wasn't a graceful mover. She did not play graceful elegant tennis and I always thought that was really to her credit. That you'd see her on the back court and she'd be doing her footwork drills because she knew that was an area to improve and she would be working on her serve which always gave her fit in part because of the shoulder injury and she would grind out matches and she would win tough matches. She did not. This was not the female Roger Federer and I think tennis fans of course know that but I think casual fans see all of this aura of elegance and assume she played that way and that wasn't the case at all I mean the the screaming grunting grinding sweating. You'll brushing the hair that had managed to her forehead. That's the Maria Sharapova on the tennis court has an athlete And I think you know again I want to just this should be a day to give credit to someone who had a tremendous career and five majors. Yes but thirty six titles almost forty million dollars you got to number one. I mean this is really an a-list career and you know she had the misfortune of playing. At the same time Serena Williams and there was a lot that went into that relationship beyond the tennis. That probably did not work to Maria benefit but you take away. Cerita you take away. Venus Williams seven majors. Maybe Justine Henin. Maybe Kim Clijsters and I think it's very easy to make the case. Marisha published one of the top five players of the Post Steffi Graf of the last twenty five years and tennis so this is really a remarkable career. And yet as you mentioned if we're going to talk about her honestly. This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Which is you know a a doping ban. I thought a very clumsy handling of the doping ban. I thought it was very out of character and off brand of her to have been so sloppy. Not just in the violation but then in the aftermath and how it was handled and some of the the the the press conference that we referenced and she was never the same player after that and you know co correlation is not causation and may simply have been that. She was a little sport and she was in early thirties and players get older. We see this on not just in tennis but in in sports in general I mean thirty two big number in in women's tennis but it was not supposed to end with a doping band and a ranking that drifted deep into triple figures so overall macro great career hall of fame player but there is a tinge I think of bittersweet. There is a little bit of disappointment. That This wasn't the way this hall of fame career was supposed to be a gift. Compare what we saw a month ago when Caroline wozniacki is out there on the court and our families there and she's toasted and all of the players are making tribute videos and were. She's crying but she's saying I'm not sad and she does. I mean I talked to her the following day. She was all gussied up because she clearly had been doing the spots around. There's definitely a difference of a decision on your terms and decision that was made based on your body and The time of your career. You know it's it's very different in comparing into. What was the Yankee especially given those? The Yankees recent title in Australia just seemed very full circle for her to do that. this again is random but also very expected. I think one of the things I always sort of liked about Sharipova was Her personality in in two ways. I think we talk. You talk about her on the court sweating grinding shrieking. I mean everyone. I think even if you're not a big tennis fan you know share Provo. Because maybe she made you mute the TV while you're watching a match and that's something that a lot of people will probably joke about but you know she worked hard in the court she was always like fierce and and you know a competitor for sure but she also you know. I remember processors and and interviews where she's actually has a very great personality and and you know quite opposite of that fierce competitor where she could be funny and she was actually Kinda Witty and and You know there was a a side to her personality. That was very likable. When most people on the court probably saw the opposite so overall she's a huge name. In this sport she's one of the handful that transcends just tennis you you mentioned her and she needs only one name There's only a handful of those type of athletes so I think She will definitely be missed. I think we're fair to
Mind Your Own Business: Deb Sandidge discusses the process of creativity
"Shamir young and I'm joined by my co host and King of creative content. Skip Cohen schedule. My God by the way I think sometime over the last ninety nine podcast together. You've used King of creative content Z and I was wondering duplicating them but it all today say king of content king of creative content. How about king of a quest for creative because that's what this is all about and man we've got a great podcast today. Yes we do. Let's get to it. We've got deb. Sands joining us today. And it's just going to be a fun one and it's mostly because she's one of the most creative artists imaging and since we're unscripted who knows where creativity is gonNA take us now. If you don't know Dab she's an icon Basseterre with a focus on travel but I don't think there's anything she can't photograph probably hasn't she's also an artist and instructor speaker and a great friend to a lot of us in the industry and I haven't known very long but we've had a number of phone conversations. We share a whole bunch of mutual friends. And she's one of those people who comes into your life and then you don't remember when she wasn't there so best of all out of all of this she never stops pushing the edge of the creative envelope in fact one of her signatures is long exposures. And if you missed it check out the image. We recently shared on the skip Cone University blog in the Y series because it was a four minute exposure in. It's absolutely stunning so on that note. Deb This is the cue for your lips to move. Welcome to my business. Well thank you very much for having me on my own business. I'm excited to be here and talk about everything creative photography industry and we're excited to have you here deb and just to kick it off. Can you explain to us kind of describe how you got started? Wister background origin story. As far as what? You're doing today. That the great question. I think one of the things that really led me to be balled into what I was doing. Very interested in infrared photography. Because it's not so literal you see a lot of pictures and in color but input was really really different so that came somewhat of a passion or of an obsession. I wanted to learn everything about it. So it became very well versed on how to work with long exposure. So what happened? Was that a company noticed. It was widely Publisher books. They asked me to write a book about infrared so that was a huge step for me. So it's was working the crap learning the craft Working with my creative outlet stare and then writing it down which is another voice altogether other than just speaking or talking about it but writing it so people could get it and understand so that was a lot of fun so that book I would say it was a calling card to really working towards the future. Getting my work noticed since So it's still something I'm really passionate about but I have a few of the things I you know. I love the do now. What was just curious. What was your first paid? Client and photography or what type of job was it. Not really who is the first so is far as a position or are spicing anything. I mean where you had a love for photography. What turned it into a business. I was asked to be part of an interview so it was about a photo I had taken. It was something that was done very passionate about at the time so it was actually a bird photography and you probably have never seen any of my birth vote. It was. It was something that was super interested in but they like the shot. There was something about the shot. It was the grace the gentleness the expression of the birds wings as Sheikh Senator Wings in the really a story in that shot so that's what they WANNA do. They wrote a story about it and then that sort of stepped into something else and then there was asked to do other projects so it was just something that built on itself so again contacted to work with the lifestyle projects which was really an interesting thing. So I think big thing is just Getting noticed and in getting work out there and again that will go do something. We'll probably talk a little bit Social Media. Well one of your signatures. That I mentioned the beginning is creativity and the great portrait photographer. Which sadly too many of our listeners never had a chance Would've never had a chance to meet. Would've is Don Blair and Don used to say you have to know the rules before you're allowed to break them and he broke them all the time whether it was the rule of thirds composition. Whatever whatever it was dom was always trying to push the envelope and this is all pre digital. And I'm just curious 'cause you you clearly know the rules but your signature has become breaking them. People will look at an image. It's it. It's like the image of the lifeguard house on featured on why and that life got stand is a four minute exposure and it's lit by the lights of the city behind you and it's just so beautiful. Where did that quest to just go out and mix up the recipe? Come from Oh thinking about that. That's because it's such a pleasure to meet to be able to shoot and have something come from the heart and that's like feel that happened to you know. I think there's there's a point in the beginning where you're practicing you're learning the craft and you're mastering the technique and then you're expanding on ideas and really you're dedicating yourself to learning all that you can learn about something and you find that you are finding your place in seem to have a lot of passion and then there's that. Steffi on imagination creativity were an I'm thinking about. I'm shooting basically a same subject you know. I've been to many times but the situation change may be different clouds and I think you know I didn't think of Rules. I think of them as guidelines and and they're sort of subconscious to what. I'm doing the bigger picture is. How can we make this uniquely my shot you know? What is it that I can do to create something? That's really from the heart spirit different and that hasn't been said before is that seemed story so I think just sort of come to me. So that's really where imagination and creativity coming in. So if I'm in front of a beautiful bridge seascape or a landscaper. Just thinking about how. What is it that I can do to take it to the next level so much the rules? I'm thinking what do I have with me? Maybe there's a neutral density filter or maybe just use the darkness of night or something different. So I I see things that have been photograph many many times before so I'd like to see them presented in a different way and I think that's where the creative spirit comes in so one of the things that menfolk struggle with including myself. I'll use myself as an example. Sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to pursue creative projects. Or maybe I should say a personal projects. Special projects were client is not paying us to do it. Because we get so caught up in the day to day business he stuff of you know paying those Pesky bills and trying to find more clients and so as far as you finding the time and the motivation to pursue these special projects. Especially when you don't necessarily know you know where you'll end up or if anyone will see these images that you make Or get noticed. So how do you find the time and the motivation? How do you carve out time during your week to pursue these special projects? That's a great question so I think that along the way with regular work that you and I would have to. Do I try to find time to do to build in something because I think what I do? As far as being again experimental and experiential works into the creative aspect he'll like that expands my work. I mean one thing leads to another I may I may shoot something more literal. Maybe it's for client on then. Maybe I'll have some time and I'll work in something that I wanna do. It was like okay well. This is from the shot Louis but what happens with these clouds. What happens if I create a time lapse. What happens if I stack these images? What happens if I create a slow motion video for example? So there's a lot of things that pop up in my head as I'm shooting and embiid just GonNa try new idea. Maybe I want to work with the idea of long exposures. We'll try the NATO density filter so when I have a great subject are really weren't able to work that subject as much as possible so I'll try different things to see what happens. This is what happens if this sort of my motto is what happens if I get that neutral density filter what happened to the make a series of exposures so there's a lot of different options as shoot so try to build that into my

This Weekend Marks One Year After Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack
"This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the shooting at the tree of life car Gatien in Pittsburgh it's also the second annual show up for Chabad on the weekend right after the shooting we at J. C. encouraged Jews and our allies around the world to go to synagogue and show up for shut it became the largest demonstration of solidarity with the Jewish people in world history this year as we mark the tracks nick anniversary we hope you'll show up for Chabad again on this weekend October Twenty Fifth and twenty sixth head to AJC dot org slash show up for Chabad to learn more Manja who did you chat with this week Avi Mayor the Managing Director of Global Communications for AJC who spearheaded an unprecedented survey of American Jewish you too about anti-semitism how about you for my interview I really zoomed in on Pittsburgh and spoke with Jeff Finkelstein the president and CEO of the Jewish Federation in Pittsburgh so let's dive right in and hear those conversations now Sunday October twenty seventh will mark exactly one year since the deadly shooting at Pittsburgh is tree of Life Congregation we spoke with Jeff Finkelstein President and CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh to get a sense of how Pittsburgh is doing one year out jeff thank you so much for joining us thanks for asking me to do this now we're almost exactly one year out from the attack that Jews US All across America felt in our own way but the victims were in Pittsburgh so I should start by asking how is the Jewish community in Pittsburgh doing so I think you're actually starting with the right question the answer's complicated and complex because when we talk about the community were all victims and there are different levels of victims obviously the families who lost loved ones the people who were injured those who are in the synagogue but escaped and saw the shooter people in the parking lot the Jewish community of Squirrel Hill the general community of Scroll Hill the Jewish community of Greater Pittsburgh Etcetera and so there were all these rungs and I think if you ask representatives of each of them on different days you'll get a different an answer So the real answer in one word is it depends you just reminded me of the poem that you might be familiar with called the order of the bomb by you who to buy it's a famous poem by famous Israeli poet and it's too long to read into the record here maybe we'll link to it in the notes but in it he basically talks about the concentric circles of you know he's speaking of course about a bombing in Israel but he says the diameter of the bomb mhm was thirty centimeters but the range of the people who had hit and the people who were affected by that and the people who cared about that further and further ends by saying and I won't even mention the Howl of orphans that reaches up to the throne of God and beyond making a circle with no end and no god which is perhaps deeper than either is intended to go there but you're certainly right to point out that the attack took place in one location but it was felt everywhere it definitely has ripple effects by the way e yes I was my professor at the Hebrew University when I was there for my junior year and I actually don't remember studying that home but I'm sure I did at one point uh now going to have to go back and re read it you know and I can speak personally there were days where I feel more than others as we approach the one year marker and I'm looking at some of the drafts of videos that are going to be used I ended up in tears and and other your time's I'm fine when the attack happened in Powei that retraumatize people in the community including people like may so I just think they're good days is there a bad days and I'll end this part just by saying that one of the blessings in my professional work has been getting to know especially the victims families who were closest to the incident they are truly remarkable wonderful strong inspiring people that's that's that's beautiful a year ago so when this happened Pittsburgh became a mechanism for antisemitism in America right it became a kind of shorthand when many people today say Pittsburgh they don't mean the city on the allegheny river they mean the place where an anti Semite attacked a synagogue and that for you it's home right it's where you raised your kids it's where you work and perhaps not only where you go to work but it's the community that you really help to Lee it has it been jarring disconnect between the city people talk about in the one that you live in it's actually interesting I just I wrote a piece and I haven't done anything with it yet it on this topic specifically because I really might even be anger that I feel when people referred do what happened here as Pittsburgh they say we have to remember Pittsburgh Yeah and when I what I want them to know about Pittsburgh is that this is an incredible unique Jewish community this is a place that's growing with close to fifty thousand Jews today that's getting younger with millennials going into our city because of the increase in eds and meds higher education medical work and high tech in general and it is is and I always state this without actually ever researching it but it never stops me it is the last major urban center Jewish community in North America outside of New York every other Jewish comed- that I know of the major community has moved out of the city itself we are still saying entered in the city of Pittsburgh with the diversity of the Jewish community there it is an incredible place and that's when it comes to the Jewish communities what Pittsburgh it should mean and when it comes to being just a city this is the city that built America it had the third most fortune five hundred companies in America after New York and Chicago for a number of years it literally built America with its steel and those are the things that people need to remember about Pittsburgh this week AJC released the findings of a new survey of American Jews feelings about antisemitism and in the survey we found that a quarter of American Jews say that they avoid certain aces events or situation out of concern for their safety as Jews forty-seven percent report that Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have been targeted by antisemitic threats graffiti or attacks and more than half of American Jews report having police and or private guards posted outside of their institutions. What has the hardening of Jewish communal spaces look like in Pittsburgh so just to take it back prior talks over twenty seventh year and a half before we hired a Jewish community security director at the Federation to start looking at that and his work save lives on Tober Twenty-seventh we we know that from people who survived in twenty four hours after the shooting took place we convened all of our Jewish institutions for briefing with our security director FBI police local politicians and talked about what was going on in the community and we at the federation made the Vision we hired armed guards throughout the Jewish community for the next four weeks we paid for it and the whole idea was to build resilience we didn't want people so scared of coming into our Jewish institutions forty eight hours after the shooting the largest Jewish preschool which is located at JC and Squirrel Hill all but one family showed up that's what we were aiming for and yes facilities have been physically hardened and there are addition thousands of new personnel for security at many of them as well someone asked me about this earlier today and you know has it has on an impact on people my own synagogue I was just there for Simpler Toronto Media Sarit I know the armed guard the people who come a lot we know oh that guard he is not Jewish he wishes you Chabad Shalom on Chabad and hugs them on the holiday it's not jarring it's comforting actually for most people I think and he's almost a member of the community and it's really it's been beautiful I think that's the way a lot of the institutions have tried to deal with the addition of security personnel now the tree of life congregation where the shooting took place last year issued a statement just last week too it's it's New Vision for the synagogue building a new mission for that institution can you tell us more about that before I answer the question I wanted just makes are we make one point that it was the tree of life building where the attack took place and that building house three congregation right tree of life New Light Endorse Hadasha and I I know you know that Steffi but I wanna make sure your listeners know that it's really important that people realize that so they've been talking about this for several months now with different parties that might be interested in co locating and collaborating on the site there's just been one initial meeting with the group I know that because we at the federation help convene that first meeting and there are a lot of details to be worked out think the congregation tree of life itself the owner of the building has been very public especially Rabbi Myers and there president that they are committed to re opening on that site in some way what it looks like exactly I think we'll take some time but the idea that Jewish life will be can you on that corner in Squirrel Hill I think is definitely is key to their thinking I just WanNa close by asking You Jeff how are you going to be spending the day I'm sure you're going to be on call and and working throughout the what will you be doing to commemorate next week so the day has been planned there's been a group that's been meeting from about the third week after the shooting they've been meeting every Thursday and that group is convened by actually part of the federal government with representatives of the three impacted congregations it's the Jewish Federation are Jewish community center or Jewish family and community service this is another local nonprofit called the Center for victims and a couple of official representatives of the victims families themselves and they have put together the framework of what will be happening that day my federation team is the one that's actually done the heavy lifting to make it all happen and that's what I'll be participating in starting at eleven am we have volunteer activities we have slots for slightly over eight hundred people as of today we're well over seven hundred are already filled in the ideas that we're going to make the world a better place in the name of those lives we lost very traditional Jewish way to do it at two o'clock the next traditional Jewish way to remember those who have lost will be tower study and I I think we're approaching four hundred people now registered for that with lots of different teachers representing all the different streams of Judaism which is I think the way we function in Pittsburgh working together and then at five o'clock will be a large community gathering to be run about an hour or so and most of that again centered around those we lost everything that's happening that day is victim centered and trauma informed because it's the local incident in Pittsburgh whereas the rest of the country that are doing things for them it's not their neighborhood per se and so that's how I'll be spent in my day is going to each of these things and being with our community well jeff our thoughts will be with you as you do that thank you so much for joining us on people at the todd thanks EFI
Where all the 2020 Democratic candidates stand on health care
"You talk about disingenuous promises when it comes to health care I don't think anyone has been more disingenuous more modeled more incoherent than Kamel Harris she has taken five or six positions most of which involve single payer health care but she tries to shaded and back away from it occasionally her new thing and she gave an interview on CNN I play the audio I broke it down on the air she said in the same interview that yes she supports a single payer healthcare for everyone and also will not raise taxes on anyone but the rich in order to pay for it in the math just doesn't even come close Joe Biden was asked about that while he was on the campaign trail in Michigan this week his response to those dual promises from Comilla quote come on I mean what is this is a fantasy world here Gander candor freeze all right yeah he's right look she's got a real problem here this is this is for all the talk about camel Harris is the next great democratic presidential candidate you she's got a real problem when it comes to healthcare and this is going to be a real weak spot for her she is the nominee I think president trump's going to be able to really take advantage of of this because she your call this debate started when she came out and said let's get rid of private health insurance for everybody much just have Medicare phone CNN on C. N. and that first town hall I think she did that's right and then she realized oh oh that's kind of a political problem I don't think a hundred eighty million Americans would like to have their health care taken away from them and so she came back and said that's not actually what I meant but then she said again well maybe that was what I meant and then you know she's been all over the map and this is one area where Americans are going to demand clarity they're gonna want to know are you serious about taking away the health insurance we've come to to use and to enjoy into value are you gonna make it harder for us to see the doctors that we want to see you and make it harder to get access to the hospitals we want to use that's a non starter for Americans but make no mistake that is exactly the planned that Bernie Sanders and camel Harris and Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker of all endorse they've endorsed a plan that would take away your health insurance about a minute left line he and this is a lot to squeeze in a last minute but is there an appetite in your experience on the Republican side do you have any unified health care policy yeah going into the next election well I I think it's hard because there are we do have some disagreements among Republicans but but fundamentally I would say we agree on more than we disagree on and so we should we should settle on some things first of all we got to focus on cost let's figure out you know that the presence then something's on drug pricing he's gonna do some more surprise billing which is where you go to the hospital you end up with this huge bill because your doctor wasn't in network or facility within network hopefully the Senate will take care of that as well and legislation that they're considering and then what I say is for obamacare let's figure out a way to get the federal government out let's figure out a way to check engine to to repeal elements of all we don't like and replace it with more control for states more control for patience and that is something I think all Republicans can agree I know we we don't have to get into too much of the detail here I actually I actually want to but we don't have time in this particular broadcast but I'll be back here for a week and I will do it then let's have you back in let's really T. that what you mean by that yeah one he chan has been my guest here on the guidance and show he is a PhD is also the David and Diana Steffi fellow in American public policy studies here at the Hoover Institution turning a hundred years old the Hoover Institution that is not launch this year our congratulations to Hoover on a big achievement a big milestone in line he always a pleasure to have you want thanks guy

Warriors survive Game 5 but Kevin Durant injures Achilles
"The warriors stayed alive in the NBA finals, beating the raptors one zero six one of five to get to within three games to two but they lost forward, Kevin Durant who went down with an achilles injury in the second quarter some of the fans cheered when Durant went down. I mean that's horrendous warriors guard. Steph curry offered some much needed perspective. Everybody get so wrapped up in no chasing championships. In the greatness that you see on the floor, but life is more important in terms of caring about an individual and, and what they're going through on a daily basis. And you see, I mean commitment and, and the challenges in just the was been thrown a Katie. You know, this, this whole year, really and. And he gave us what he had. He he went out there, sacrifices body turned out, so part of our miss out in, like the experiences the experiences that we have as a team.

That is just awful game six Thursday in
Jonathan Van Ness's 'Gay Of Thrones' Web Show Is Back
"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John horn. You've certainly heard of game of thrones the HBO series that is now in its eighth and final season. But what about gay of thrones gave thrones as a funny or die web series? That's been recapping game of thrones episodes ever since season three. The show is hosted by Jonathan van Ness. You might know him as the hairstylist and grooming expert on the Netflix show queer eye each week, a different guests like Gabrielle union or on a affairs sits down and Jonathan stylus chair for a pretend haircut and the to get talking about that weekend's episode of game of thrones with countless jokes and pop culture. References. Here's a clip from today's episode with actor and comedian Camille Johnny about a pivotal game of thrones scene between sir c and Tyrian. Lancaster? I bet you but evil no volume Carol Brady goes no dice. She's like, don't you tear us maternal instinct's against me. I am just as indicative and unreasonable as Amen that was recorded just yesterday, the funny or die studios in Hollywood where I visited a chat with Jonathan van Ness and Aaron Gibson the series creator and director, she's like don't you dare us. My maternal instinct's against me, I has been dictated and unreasonable as any man. She's like, don't you tear us nine maternal instinct's against me. I am just as reasonable. And I am just as and unreasonable as any man. When I sat down with Erin Gibson, and Jonathan van Ness after the shoot I ask van as how making time for gay of thrones works logistically with all his commitments for queer eye season. Seven shows the last season, I was in Atlanta shooting queer eye. So I would shoot queer eye Tuesday through Friday and get on a plane, and then come here do gave thrones get back on the plane, go back to Atlanta. And now this time I have said spoke to New York, and so Sunday mornings, I get up and I pop on a plane, and I get here, and then I come to show with everyone. And then I go home, and well, then I pitch all my jokes before everyone else gets pitch their jokes, which is really nice to me. So everyone's could stay up till midnight. And I tap out at night. And I'm like, oh my God. I'm so tired, which is the joke. But really I am. It's a lot like. We need you to be amazing on camera dies need to go to bed. What is it? Like when you guys are watching it is it like being Theodore everybody's talking about to the screen like, there's just constant banter. You making knows what does it sound like this new method where we're doing like one of our people will yell out the number. So it's like a scene one seemed to because we're all kind of writing while we're watching it. So there is some healing of the screen usually from me, but we turn the lights off we have snacks. And we right. We really are. There's a lot of typing are other tradition is that we always have ten degrees. We've had ten degrees every single year and shocked. Not sick of it. There are so many recaps of game of thrones. And what's amazing to me is how quick and how thorough they are? And when you're thinking about how you were going to both recap and episode and then do something. That's funny. How do you figure out? What is I? Because is it important that you get the story. Right. I and then at the jokes are what order they come in. I think it's always about serving the purpose of how Jonathan has regurgitated this show. So in my mind is always funny. I, but I do want this to be a cheat sheet for people who maybe don't watch game of thrones. And maybe one not feel like they're an outcast in society at work. So they do know what's going on. But first and foremost, it's about making this show funny, and allowing Jonathan to shine his very specific and hilarious light on a show. That is the most McCall thing on TV. The other thing that you guys seem to be really intentional about is making sure that you have the most latest pop culture references possible. So. So you just did an episode where you have a mayor Pete reference. There's a reference to the Boeing seven thirty seven max is that always like what happened that day that we can incorporate how do you think about what is and is not funny or worth including well, I have to say, you know, in in the episode from last week. It was all about Martina Hingis. This battle had more downs than Martinez. Hang stories his career. So I things are going great. She wins drilling open in ninety seven. Well, then she screws up at the French Open by serving underhanded, stuffy graph and gets booed off the court. But then she goes on to the lay at Wimbledon. Unfortunately, then she just positive for snow, which she denies. Let's what they love about. Our writing room is like it's really we are going to we're going to get an each we're going to go big. We're going to go niche gonna go. Now, we're gonna go eighty six we're going to go ninety four you don't know. Also, we might have a revolutionary war thing. Like, you just don't know what you're going to get last night we joke because we couldn't remember if we'd already made it, and it was a nodding hill reference, and it was. I'm just a dragon Queen standing in front of a murderous asking her to surrender. So how does the Martina Hingis reference come in? Because it goes on for like, two minutes. It's all of Martinez, tennis Greer the ups and downs. I forgot that she got popped for drug offence. There is a lot of research and detail in your Martina hanging story, we'll happen. There was as we air was trying to figure out a great analogy for something that has a lot of ups and downs. And we wanted to get through the battle scenes quickly because it was just a lot of carnage is a lot current and all the ideas that were coming up for something to had a lot of ups and downs. Just weren't feeling quite on the gay of thrones brand win all of a sudden Martina h'angus's underhand serve to Steffi Graf in the ninety nine French Open just leaped into my head. And I was like it's Martina Hingis tennis career, which when anything sounds like oh my God. It's Martinez tennis career
