"Stowe have announced plans to be open today, but tomorrow we'll have limited operations. It's only like 15°. I know. What's the big deal? I mean, I'm going to have to out west next week to skip. It's going to be sunny and warm. I'm going out to a little place with some back bowls out there so that'll be good. But it's just because people are too sensitive these days. They are. I was okay. That's my growing up in New York City. Guess what? In kindergarten when I was 5, I walked to school by myself. Oh, of course she did. You know, now these parents had to walk their kids to like saint davids or Buckley, right? And they can't, you know, they're so afraid. Until they're in 5th grade. Jess brings back the reality. A lot of earnings still out there. What gets your attention today? There's a couple names that I'm keeping a close eye on. And so one of them is Clorox, ticker symbol, CLX, sucks up more than 6% on pace for its best day since March 2020. It did have strong earnings and increased its annual profit outlook, but if you zoom out and look at what's happening more broadly with Staples this year among the worst performers in the S&P 500 with that index, that group in the index down about 2% this year, but then if you look on the flip side of that and looking at what's happening with home builders, that sub industry group, it's down a little bit more than 1% today, but it's up 18% this year and you've been seeing more broadly what's been happening in this home builder stocks, especially because this is a component within the discretionary sector. So that's been on fire this year. And so even though we're seeing that group down a little bit today, still up pretty significantly for the year Paul. Clorox. Clorox. Okay, I get that product. I forgot they were standing in public company, but it's $19 billion in market cap based out in Oakland, California. But they make believe. They make bleach. And what else Katie? They also make kitty litter. This is why I love earnings calls. So you have the Clorox chief financial officer say that really litter was the star of the group. We continue to see very strong category growth. So, I mean, people need to buy bathrooms. Because everybody's buying during a pandemic, everybody got a pet or multiple pets, you're a cat person. I am. And how important is litter kitty litter to? Oh my God, you live and die by whether or not you have let her Clorox it sells this fresh step brand, sure you've seen it. It's like a yellowish box. It has a cat on it. Of course we've seen it. I've avoided the you know what? It's not just a pet house. It's not just for cash. John Tucker uses king litter in his car. He sprinkles it along the back seat, the bench seat. Super vehicle. Why? I think there's a long story. I don't know all the details, but I think he sent his kid to the gas station to get some petrol for the lawnmower or something. And the kid didn't even put the cat back on through it in the backseat and it spilled everywhere. And apparently Tucker says kitty litter is very absorbent when you spill gasoline or oil. There you go. And the best way to soak it up. And you can get it scented as well, so it can smell. I hope you got a scented version. Clorox is calling out kit kitty litter. Good stuff. All right, Jess menton. Katie greifeld Bloomberg news. Bringing us up to date on all things on the markets and on kitty litter and multiple uses of kitty litter. Let's get to the story that we were talking about a little bit last year at one point, anything we had so many shortages of so many products. One of the more serious ones was baby formula. And at the time we spoke to Laura Modi, CEO and founder of baby formula company Bobby. She joins us again today. So Laura, thanks so much for joining us here. Can you give us an update on kind of the baby formula market supply demand availability? Where are we right now? Yeah, good to challenge you guys again. Look, it has been a long year. I mean, you can coin last year's four year gate 2022. The shortage of severe and it really was one of the most serious and shortages we've had in a long time. I would say while the shortage is coming to a close, it's still remains a crisis. Fundamentally, we have not addressed the problem, which is domestic supply domestic manufacturing. So until we bolster our domestic manufacturing practices, we may be in this crisis for a long time. So what does it look like then out there for mothers who need formula? Are they able to get any formula? Is it just, you know, high quality formulas in short supply or what's it look like? Or coming up on a year since the Abbott recall happened in some of the shortage started. And as of last week, nearly a third of households or the baby under one said they still had trouble finding formula. Yeah, some high quality ones and some very sensitive formulas as well. So where are we? It just gave us the sense of kind of domestic production domestic supply, kind of, where are we today? Where should it be in your opinion? Yeah. Look, this is, I believe, the cause of what is being just a concentrated and in many ways the complacency of a concentrated industry, 85% of the market is dominated by two players. And those two players have owned the incongruent market for over 40 years. Very little innovation and no competition, which has resulted in the complacency that we see today. And your company, just to refresh, you guys are direct to consumer talk to us about your company Bobby and kind of how you're playing in this market, which I guess a lot of us who don't have children maybe forget how critical it is for so many families. That's right. Look, interesting formula is an essential good. This is not a typical country product. It's not a granola bar. When you start your baby on formula, you

"Were coming and taking our resources, it was very intimidating. And then you had other tribes also that you had to worry about. One of our probably biggest rivals at that time would have been the creek nation. And we had to protect our hunting grounds. So there was so much going on that you just, it would be so overwhelming if we look at it in today's light, it would be like, you know, China coming here in Russia coming here and all of them trying to take what we have, it would be such an intimidating time. Looking at nanya, he's life in one respect, she was an international diplomat because she was leading negotiations between two different states. She has a unique background in that she can move between these different cultures, she marries a white settler, or later on, but this isn't the beginning of her story. And to take a step back, looking at different figures during this pivotal period in the 18th century who are building bridges between white settlers and Americans and different Indian nations are people who live between these different worlds. For example, on the Lewis and Clark expedition, sacajawea or some of the pronounced Chicago is married to a French Canadian fur trapper, so this is how she can serve as a translator. And many of these figures at this time period may have an Indian mother or are multilingual due to many different circumstances of their life. And sometimes we portray these people as who have a smattering of language and they help out explorers and whatnot as if they're rug merchant in Cairo who happens to know a little bit of English and can guide you through this crazy world. But in many ways, they are leading diplomatic negotiations on a very high level. So what is in, he's backgrounds that later qualifies her to really enter the world of politics at the highest level in the 18th century in early America. Non his birth was foretold in the Cherokee culture that a great woman would rise out of the wolf clan and lead her people to greatness and when Nancy was born, it is cultural that your parent or grandparent take you to be bathed, it was very cold winter day. She was born sometime in December of 22 of 1722. So we know it was cold and it was told that it was called and her grandmother sugi took her to the water to bathe her as the tradition stance and as she rose up from the creek after watching the baby, a white wolf appeared above them. So she then knew that she was holding the child of the prophecy. And so I believe she was known among them that this was going to happen. And she was trained from a very young age. O'Connor Stowe, which would have been the war chief of the Cherokee nation right around the time of her birth was married to a lady named Lucy ward. Lucy ward was a cousin to her future husband, Brian ward, Lucy, was a lady in waiting for the wife of king George the second's wife in England and when O'Connor star went to England, he met the beautiful Lucy ward, and they fell in love, and she returned to the United States as his wife. And during that period, not long after they came back a few years after they came back and he was born. And non his father had been killed in battle, protecting the chief. And therefore, the uncles became as fathers in our culture. So Lucy being his wife took a shine to my grandmother. And actually taught her English and, you know, different ways of how the white people thought, you know, differently than what we did. And unfortunately, when nanya, he was approximately 7, 8 years old, Lucy succumbed to smallpox. And O'Connor stoa and also and his son, dragging canoe also develops smallpox. As I said, Lucy, unfortunately, passed away, but O'Connor stoa and dragon canoe did survive. So as we progress forward in time, she was in on, you know, her family was basically, we don't believe in our culture and kings and queens and princes and princes and so on and so forth. But they were considered as such by the white people because that's how they looked at leaders in that time for whatever reason. So we weren't princess, but she was treated as such and her uncles were constantly negotiating. Her other uncle out of kula kula was the peace chief. So she has, you know, two uncles that are chiefs, their grandfathers, the chief. So she was constantly around those things and they knew, of course, the story about how this young child would be born from the wolf plant that would rise to greatness and she'd fit the criteria for that. They understood that when she was born. So therefore, I believe that, you know, just her cultural Ness, what she was around on a day to today basis brought all these things into her life. The French were coming in. The English were coming in so she was constantly exposed to other languages and she learned them. She was an intelligent child. She has an auspicious birth. She comes from a high pedigree among her people, but also what vulture to prominence are the choices that she makes in a battle with the creek or the muscogee people. And this is what earns her the title of beloved woman. Can you tell me what she does? This battle in 1755 and how this leads to her becoming a diplomat. Yes. She was pregnant and was ordered to stay at home and of course being the curious type of person that she was. She was, you know, all about her people, her culture, and she wanted to be there when her husband went into battle. So she went in around about way and joined her husband very close to the battle so he couldn't send her back. And during this fight with the creek Indian, Kingfisher, her first husband, was killed. And at that point, she picked up his war Lance and shouted the battle cry to move forward because they were in a process of retreating. They had been told to retreat. She got angry and went for it. And as she raised the lands and yelled out the battle cry, the other warriors stopped what they were doing. They turned around and they followed her back in the war and fortunately they won that war, had they not won that war who knows what would happen to my grandmother. I mean, I have a pretty good idea. What would happen, but she avenged her husband's death and just became a legend through it. And that's how she got the title gay. You beloved woman when they came home, they recognized her in the great things that she'd done that day. From this point on, she is named a leader of the woman's council of clan representatives. What does this mean? What is she doing when she becomes the ambassador and

"What's funny is, according to Stowe explorer, I think he's correct, Samsung makes all the panels, right? That's correct. Samsung makes the QD oled panel. Isn't that funny? But it's like LG, Samsung has two divisions. One is the Samsung electronics, which makes the consumer products that people buy. The other is Samsung display, LG has the same thing. They have LG electronics and LG display. And the LG display or the Samsung display is the company that makes the raw panels. And they'll sell them to whoever wants to buy them. And so Samsung display makes the panel that goes in the Samsung QD oled and also in the Sony QD oled. What distinguishes them, it's the processing. It's the fact that the Sony has supports Dolby vision and Samsung has long decided we're not going to pay the licensing fee for Dolby vision and instead we're going to implement this HDR ten plus. Which is fine, but Dolby vision, there's so much more Adobe vision content. That I want a TV that'll decode it. And deal with it. It's worth that's worth the extra money to me. Oh, well, after you buy this, I'm going to I want to get your thoughts. Oh, yeah. I'm not going to buy it till you do. Once you buy it, I'm very curious. Right. Now I meant to mention I didn't on the air that next Tuesday's podcast will be all about the shootout. Okay. I'm going to have I'm going to have Robert zone on. He's the owner of value electronics and the founder of the shootout. I'm going to have Jason dusty from meridia who was one of the calibrators, and David Mackenzie, who was one of the judges. He's a compression. Who works on creating blurays and Ultra HD blurays. So they've got golden eyes for sure. Yeah. And so we're going to spend an hour talking about the event. And how it was how it was set up, and what happened. So it's going to be a really interesting show, I think. I got a question for you. Sure. Can I use the TV as a center channel? In some cases yes. That would be kind of cool. It would be very cool. Yes and no. Sure, it would be cool. But if the TV speakers audio system is really crappy. Well, then it wouldn't be cool. It's not so cool. That would not be cool. Right. Plus the fact that some TVs have that capability. They will let you in the menu, specify that their sound system is going to be the center channel. Yeah, mine, I don't think that. That's an old Panasonic fiero. But some don't. Yeah. It's pretty old.

"Let's see how this goes and what we found is that we found lifts in place of those conversion rates but then i ali notice around the time of these ads that we will see more writing in us wanting to talk to sales like this. I was. I didn't believe it i actually. I was like sisters. It might just making this move ahead and looking at the numbers like trying to make the numbers look like this is really happening. But then over time we've tracked it and relate. Okay we are seeing the lists around these air and it's been exciting some like we'll keep it. Keep doing this. And now i wanna do worth things like aft because i'm coming our digital marketing background also working for an organization read joe. It have a huge marketing budget. I've always been super careful like okay. Invest this dollar. This is the return. We're going to get on this dollar but now you've as thrown happen able to play worse than playing around more. Unlike won't we are seeing some improvements here so yeah i'm excited to try more activities like that. You think it's one of those things that so the modern marketer and i've talked about this in the past especially the digital marketer. You have a lot of folks. Many folks i've interviewed on this podcast. That are like to the penny. I know exactly what is working. I will kill everything. That's not yet and i will know that i will get doubt in boothby to be like thirty is more art than science at times. Not all the time but at times you're talking about otherwise you wouldn't otherwise sales wouldn't matter right otherwise you would just all convert and just the way but it's like at the end of the day salesperson his still going to be talking to this person and trying to convince them like why. This is the best decision for them right right. It's not just a person right there talking to six people and some people that aren't even talking to those are the folks that are signing the paperwork and so we have to also think about what our brand looks like gray like how do we cut through the clutter. Just know what there isn't friction at that signing face thoroughly. Why are we signing this. Big for Hurt up so that is where marketing plays a big role in that is harder to attribute arrive but it still it's very important piece Think that this idea of waste was something. That was very familiar with marketers. They're right like you're used to waste right because you knew but it's like i'm going to put a bunch of stuff out there that you know tons of people aren't going to like or tower care about or it's gonna just yet fallen deaf ears or it's just not the right target or whatever because most marketing was waist. Now it's like it's very different for us right and not saying that we want to waste dollars but the idea that it's like there is certain elements that you need you like this super bowl ad for bbb company. Everybody says is them. It's like you've seen it work really well for certain people because of like the idea that there is value in doing certain types of things that might be value in a in a way that you didn't necessarily think you were going to get it absolutely and you know just with your partner around the super bowl ad hasn't you have to remember. It's b but you're still marketing a human right and chances are given amount of people that are watching the super bowl. Your term is watching the super bowl. And if you have the budget in a message that resonates to let's say a lot of organizations. Why not do that right because again. You want to be top of mind to these these folks humans when they need to make that decision on your products in like. I think that to your point with the the radio spots that you're talking about right. It's like in that moment. Your sales rep has emailed them three times in a row with no response right. Oh yeah she's sitting there. Like i'm this is i'm losing it like this is the four-time is going to hurt my soul to ask them and it's like you and then that person's listened to a couple ads and they're like oh. I know any to respond to her. But i was at the gym. Oh i know anita responder yes just giving those touches and keeping that person you know engaged in that way especially if they already know who you are or especially if they're like oh i've been meaning to demo the product and i just haven't got time to those type touches are so important right our our good buddy at chained are from. Cmo cooper says paint. This guy's kupa blue and i love. I love that idea right. It's like everywhere you turn. You're seeing your prospects for seeing you somewhere hearing you somewhere and that's like that's how you win exactly you just to chander on best so anything you've done you've been here for five years. You know you could do it in your sleep. Bright your eyes closed. You know you know the demo the numbers. You can do that stuff things that like you know once you get to this point in time and we've had a few other marketers who've kind of get in this mode where especially in start up world or like you grown you grown you grown you grown each challenges a different day and then you kind of wake up one day and you're like okay. I think i kind of know where we're at right now. I feel really good about everything. But i think i need to push myself like i think need to push the organization because we're little too comfortable with whoever at have you had that kind of moment i have. I have to say it's interesting now. In a sense would say the product. He is pushing me. I can't talk about them right now but he has some releases coming out that is changing now at the thinking about some of our marquette. So it's really exciting. Timing's perfect really okay. We don't want to say we've figured out. She never fully figured out. But we've got a place where we like. We think we have a good template for what we need to do. But now there's this new challenge and so it's really exciting. 'cause i'm spending you'd have built a great team with me at issue. Are that can handle some of this current day-to-day nam able to focus more than these newer projects. That were i feel question scare ray. Like like okay. Is this gonna work at. I really resonate with that feeling because they have that five years ago starting with. Hp are like how are we gonna make this work and again not knowing the Lists extremely intimidating. That's i love that you said that those additional you know whether it's released product releases or announcements or those sorts of things and you're like you know how are we going to get this other stuff out as is a great thing that might push you out of the comfort zone. I think curious if you got to this point to where you're like people come to you and you're like hey maybe we should do blank and you're like well. We looked at that two years ago and like it wasn't right. Know whatever and then you catch yourself like that was two years ago. Entire world has changed in the past two years so maybe we should consider the super bowl or maybe we should consider whatever else it is. Because like i probably shouldn't just be saying no to stuff because we haven't considered or because it was two years ago to say earlier talked about celebrity chefs events So it said that to me. Two three years ago. I'd be like crazy. That's fluffy it's not necessary but then types of change right and humans needed something different to do and those have been incredibly successful for us so yeah there in often. Yeah eating my words because you know as a marketer relaxing to be no at all and then someone tells us an idea that's like no you don't marketing and then you think about it. You're like actually. That was a really good idea. So so always kind of a bank in my mind. What seeks adjusted. And and what we can do. I love the adage the marketing adage of when you're sick of hearing your messaging it's starting to reach your your customers.

"Stick to those challenges and you know kind of like what i was like is this is going to resonate in a did i was really surprised by that But again it's it's really thinking about like what challenges are your customers having in understanding what those are and leveraging your sales team to say. Hey i'm hearing. This is going on the field marketer. You do something about this. We have a good story to tell here. You figure out how to tell it and that's what we did like okay. Thanks sales team. Thanks for the ear. To the ground for the intel. Okay we solve this problem and we tackled it using content in data to to got leads and customers. Yeah i mean it's an interesting to me. I think people sometime shy away from competitive campaigns. But it's such a funny thing because that's what they're searching right like your prospects are like doing a comparison right. It's like if your problem is is winning the deal. That's one thing if your problem is getting consideration in the first place if you're not even included in the mix like you better be comparing yourself to those other people and i expect it from them too. So it's you know it's fair game out there. Yeah no totally. I mean at the end of the day like you know he needs to position yourself where where your competitors are and if you're not doing you know at at a minimum. I mean your messaging should be doing that stuff anyways if you're not calling them out if you're not calling amount per specifically yeah yeah. Obviously you know you worked on different kinds of campaigns in the past any campaigns that you've worked on in the past that brings some insights of working on the on the more agency side of things or or i don't know say back in the house is that but doing the agency side where it's not quite as as a different experience when when you're the one with the budget and And making the campaign yourself. Kind of sitting in the seat versus can of being on the agency side word like making recommendations on the media side making recommendations. Well one thing i noticed. I'm really a lot more sensitive. Let's say to folks trying to sell in to us versus being the one. That's one difference. I think being on the agency side having been there. I feel like you know. You're very campaign. Focused in on this side. Were very is a different approach. That we're employing. It's more of like multiple campaigns to one prospect versus taking like. Hey here's this wine campaign. Let's look at the results are a did it perform in for our buyer to convert. It takes several Convert elaborate jump lifecycles marketing basically. So there's different tactics. Deploy at every stage of the life cycle. Opt to get someone to that what we call an opportunities sales accepted lead. So there's various campaigns. Were deploying to get them there. So it's kind of different lens. I'm looking at marketing versus. Here's his campaign. How did do because what i'm looking at. Is you know what we invest. In order the programs we invested in to get these prospects to convert. And i really liked to look at the overall picture of lake. This these efforts we put in in this is the pet. We versus getting too granular. Because it's gonna get some leads. Might be in a demo. We have some folks that are in the middle of sales cycle that are participating in a while. So i if the step back and look at the bigger picture because you could have different people in a life cycle participating in a campaign. Yes i mean well so this is this is a great point and it's one that You know when when you talk about the portfolio approach to marketing specifically within bdb where one program is not going to win the deal right like just not going to happen. It's all that its attribution based ray where it's like okay this campaign touch that person. This campaign did this campaign and this campaign did what was the thing that drove them a wall. You could say that. Hey will this webinar after that was when you know the deal closed and it's like you have the last test yeah right. Yeah exactly what last touch so you know. But but i think that that's the thing that you nailed it. I i was kind of searching for there is when you have kind of the agency approach of creating singular campaigns that are achieving one particular result versus the holistic portfolio approach of like. How are we shaping this entire account going forward exactly. I look at like term metrics where we seeing lifts you know. Are we increasing our overall opportunities. So i look at you know big numbers over time and seeing how they kind of impact each other to understand the program affected this because sometimes you might have one. Let's say women are and one person may impact the impacted. That could be six seven. Figure deal right so you could say well your conversion rate was this and it's like no no you have to look at the roi so again you also have to look at different metrics really understand the fruits of your labor. Yeah for sure. Are there any metrics that you particularly focus on that are those like certain pieces of attribution or certain things that you see that you're like okay. That's our gold standard for seeing that than than we're looking good. Yeah i mean sort angle. As i mentioned this opportunities but we on a weekly basis I have a digital marketing specialist. We're constantly looking at just. Conversion rates for the various campaigns. Were running on different digital channels. Because you get a sense of time again. I've been working with each year for five years. I kind of know where conversions that we also are cycled from conversion shoe in a sales long right after step back and be like okay for seeing an ad to be able to explain this. Your ceo and boards like okay. We invested this much here. Were not going to see a return. But hey these numbers are looking good. And here's why i'm seeing you know. Lifted simply look at things like direct hits on our site who's just converting by directly coming to our site and that's a good indicator of brand awareness. And i say that. Yeah i think actually. By this point in time our pipeline should look like this because these kind of indicators early indicators are there any bits that you make that are kind of your five to ten percent year budget or things like that that are like hey if this works great. This is our the experimental budget. Are you of things like that. I just laughing first time this year. We sponsor cairo's doll american public radio. The tech with would. And i. I was like okay. This may just fall on. its face like i just. I don't know we're gonna try this kind of more brand awareness titan ten seconds.

How would they get the data there and then. How fast do we need to get a state of there. And then also we pulling the data from an acl released solves a lotta those questions that folks have in why we work with them in really are tool is really made for the enterprise. Because you'll probably hear there's a lot of data integration tools on the market. Were we stand out. Is the fact that one we can move these high volumes of data we can do it from systems like sap and then also we're able to do it in a very secure way with how we wrote the data as you probably know. Data in the cloud is another concern as well. So of course you know able to do that. Really security with encryption the way our architecture kennedy over good friends at snowflake preteen gray marketers amazing story too. I really admire what they do. It's great so yeah when you when you think about those type of partnerships you know where you have something you know or or just even from channel perspective or those sorts of things especially like take it. Take a snowflake or google cloud or somebody like that some of these folks that that have a bigger audience than than you do and have that base of customers you know. There's a clear kind of need there. You mentioned obviously events being a part of that events. Got a little crazy over the last year.

Going on at are a lot of cool stuff particular campaigns that that have stood out to you and it could be in your car roll or or and past roles that particularly you enjoyed or learned from.

"Talk about some of the things that that you are doing. you know. you're looking at podcast. Which we love videos white papers customer stories all that stuff. How do you think about content. Well people always say contents. King that i would say absolutely part of it is if you look at the buyer's journey you know often people stay map your marketing the buyer's journey and especially in enterprise. Really if you think about us. Humans like how we buy. We want to hawaii. We wanna research before. I buy something online. I like to see what the reviews have to say. you wanna make sure it's the right fit does have what i need your busy right. You don't want someone to waste your time. You don't want to be on a bunch of calls trying to figure out if this is gonna be the right fit so content is serves as the guide four prospects so they can stay okay before i make my move and say a wanna talk to sales and learn more. Is this really what i need. And that's what we're trying to answer but as you mentioned like there's also an education about who we are and also what we do that's different because with our technology. The way it was used in the past has changed. So we've also had do education about howard. Technology is used today what those use cases are so it's yacht. Content is a strong part of our strategy. I don't see that changing but like you mentioned finding new channels new ways to do. It is the exciting part around contacts. It is one of the questions right of like you know how many different pieces of content i it kind of seems never ending at times of what you wanna create right. Oh my gosh. Rico is always like what you don't have enough. I'm like no sales this and we have this idea for this and this is coming out. We need this. It's just what it is but it's so important because again that's how near making our connection with a prospect right. We want to be part of that. Journeys Mean we'll say you know. Creating a piece of content can be challenging. Gotta get the the kind of the idea behind it. You need the editing. The design but it's so worth it. I think it pays off. A lot of that. Is evergreen like something that we was relevant. Two years ago in our space is still relevant today. So it's a very worthwhile best. Met you know it is funny to think about. We're talk about personalization. Right like well if i could create a very personalized piece of content like it was just a webinar. Icke said you're selling like that for one prospect and that prospects lifetime value is will just one hundred thousand bucks and creating that content. You know cost us twenty five thousand bucks you'd like that's the best investment is of course you do that right like any any day of the week but you know we very rarely personalize piece of content like that for one account but if you look at some of the way these massive companies with their executive briefing centers. You know things like that were how much work goes into disclosing one massive deal. It's probably wait worth way more than it would've been to create that perfect case study for that one persona mer prospect exactly exactly data obviously being your business data very important to marketers has being around a company like yours the like h. Vr has that kind of shifted. How you think about data and marketing absolutely you either as mentioning i went to grad school for marketing. And you know we had a class on database analytics had a mynatt. How understand it never gonna use this. But now i see the impact. Data has on large organizations. We were with under armour for example What are their use. Cases is around that fitness tracker apps. They have their customer database They also have their stores either inventory. They want one view of all this data and they're able to leverage say. Hey you know what our customers over here. They're buying running close raid or maybe they're seeing from this app. They're running wars. Maybe we need a stock. Our stores here of more clues that are running related versus biking related. We also work with one eight hundred flowers. They have a bazillion different brands. So i don't know if you've heard of wasserman's there. They make great english muffins. Great thing if you can't make it home to mom send wolfer English muffins Token so basically you know. They have their floral brand which we all know about early in the states know about in the end they have chocolate brands or whatnot. And what they want to do is create a unified experience for their customer. In your like course that's easy but it's not easy because you this data from various different properties if they have or silo people in our space talk about data silos. And how how'd you get that to one place to that customer calls in in. Let's say they just ordered the buffets for mom in silvino flowers from someone else. That's the same customer. And if you didn't know that then they may not have such a great experience but also by knowing they are and who they're ordering which of your properties you're ordering from that also opens up opportunities for up selling but then there's also the retention Action which we all know that silky and marketing is is having that one someone that's gonna promote your brand and then choose to stay with their brand. The data is just so valuable in what it enables us to know and understand about our customers and prospects in for my perspective. I'm always wanting war right like in looking at our database and how we leverage it. I just wanna be able to understand. War and i'm like how can i dig into these numbers more so that we can be more effective in our market because i am seeing what our customers are doing. Their data will yana. And i'm curious. I mean how many marketers are involved in that sales process for your product because it seems like so many marketers are touching the stuff but a lot of times that data's you know falls under this you've paid off sir. Vp analytics or whoever it is and yet at the end of the day it's the marketer who needs access to it the most exactly you know. It's a big challenge for us because we market to the it person. Sure of they're the ones that have the budget They're the ones that are implementing the program there are also again. We're talking about a technical product. They're really understand why. This product versus another data over product might be more beneficial however for my perspective is our company grows. They definitely want to sell more in shoe. Let's say folks that manage the supply chain because real time data as you can imagine giving even the under armor example supply chain is understanding. What's happening in the moments. You can fix a problem or identify opportunities important but also to marketers new. Do they know that. There's a tool out there. That can get them their data faster. They don't have to today. Because you just want to get your job down your report. Someone's probably leading for your report. You just want to get that information. So the fact that reduce the time to getting that information's key too many an organization. It really is. And i think you know having stuff at your fingertips marketer. I mean for certain. Come that you'll be it's like in real time is maybe not as important you know for for shoe company or something when you know you can have a shoe launched that drops. The people are waiting. They have an army abott's waiting to try to get all the shoes or people camped out on the street or stuff like that. Where literally seconds go by. And you're doing you know hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales nights like that. Data's is so important. In that moment it is so important in neto. It's data's important. The al one because you can understand your customer better but also because if there's a disaster happening the longer you have to wait to know there's a disaster the more money you're losing right so there's a lot of benefits having data at your fingertips so you have a bunch of different partner organizations You use do you think about partner marketing at all is that is that in your mix absolutely in fact i have a team member. That's responsible for it..

Right out of college. I got a job activity so her standard partners for those of you. That don't know they were the ones that came up with the got milk campaign. I did not get to work on anything. Cool as that. But i did get to work on each key plus branding campaign and visits. I was too young to really understand what was going on. This is a really critical time for each. They were going through their proxy merger with compact and in. I was responsible for doing media. But why i'm talking about. This is because we were doing a media planning and i remember that point in time digital with kind of an afterthought we had maybe five percent of our budget allocated for digital and i remember reading reps from fast company and whatnot and they were all trying to sell us this Digital like i don't know and it didn't make it on the plan but fast forward today digital is takes up probably it next to events probably the second most on budgeted. He's of a marketing plan. So after good be i actually went into digital ad sales and after several years not i decided. I am not a good salesperson. I've made my number. But in terms of i really enjoyed putting the proposal together gathering the data saying. Hey this is how we can help you reach your target. Because we were selling into actually video game companies and i was like this is what i really love like kind of getting into the numbers commit with the programs to sell to them so i went to get my masters in marketing at nyu. It's a really great program. And i really got to learn more about digital but also about the financial more analytical side of marketing and from says then That has led me to our day working in marketing for basically beat be marketing for an enterprise organization that sells into the enterprise. Yes who in for listeners. Who don't tell us little bit about each vr. absolutely so. i'm gonna try to talk about this. Without getting too technical each vr review. Real time data replication. What is that. you're probably like okay. And if you think about it. Oftentimes as marketers were trying to get data between our tech stack right like you might use outreach. I owe you might use tub sought salesforce beanie that data to seek if you think about. Hp are were doing that at a larger scale. Enterprise organizations. they're gathering data from point of sale data from customer profiles. Data from your salesforce. Maybe our sap systems into an analytical system typically in the cloud like a snowflake and that's where teams are able to run analytics on their data. We actually what makes us unique is how we move the data the fact we can do it in real time so for those that don't know oftentimes data will large items of data would take maybe a day. I'm two days to get into that system for analysis with hp are able to deliver that real time and so knows you kinda came into this role in the enterprise. How did you kind of think about you know coming into this as a slightly different kind of mode for your career. Think part of it is. It was up for the challenge right. There's a lot of principles that you can apply from even marketing downbeat abi marketing most of my career but then learning how to understand what data replication is was definitely an uphill challenge for me and even new folks. I hire onto a marketing team. Many of them aren't from this space. We're lucky is that. I have fantastic teenage that. I work with our ceo or vp of product. All of us have been with these year for over five years and we really respect each other right. They respect my knowledge marketing.

You know the the partnership with sales and marketing or the partnership with product. And it kind of being this ever evolving thing the highly technical product. One that you might not necessarily have known off jumps tree. How much time did you spend just like diving into how it works in all that granularity and still spending time into it honestly. It's an ever evolving process. A lot of it has to do with reading right so i might work with our ceo. Say okay we want to talk about this in even in the beginning what we wanted to deliver value to our target. Now when i worked to this year we had very few inbound leads and so we just had to figure out what is our story would if they wanna know to learn about each vr. In through that process. I learned a lot about the product. Howard different. how it matters it. Even as we've grown the company be brought in new employees. It's also talking to them like where did you see on the product. That's different would you see that you need. How can we bring that to market. And then i find myself all the time does learning more and more about what makes a product different and then as their customer base has grown. There's another way to learn about the product right. How is it actually being used in the market in. What is the benefits of that. So i could see with this technical product. It's always learning warm. Where about it. It's a never ending journey.

That's every la that's all there was and even the bullet i know find and i understand. Find the bullet. That killed danny is really no good unless you have gone. That's what they told me. If we had the gun we could say well. This person owned the gun and this matches the bullet that killed daddy was gone to bullet even if the gun. They can't and i've got the paper where it was sent. Gb out of fulton county da's office in february of two thousand seven. They can't to every day. It seems like it's an the only saving grace we have today. I mean every week. It's something different. Tommy has i don't how he contacts these people but he has a a retired from taylor. County georgia that is extremely interested because the owner on the strip club with a man named eli gawltney as the years have gone on. We have racer a lot gawltney. And he was there a lot of the strip clubs and the whole godly family originated in paler county so this retired share is familiar with everything with the whole family so he can confirm how they were. The godly family was really bad news. And they're all they're not that they would provide an information anyway. But that sarah has contact. With danny i'd have to look but he he does a clown show on tv and and he's interested in it because he is a retired homicide detective from atlanta. Who remembers the case when it happened and he also has a son who is the current homicide detective. So they're all extant helping out during the course of the investigation in probably the mid eighties. There was in the file that i got was a piece of paper. It was a memo from mobile caveat. Alabama saying i don't remember said we think we have or we have the person responsible for the killing at the proponents of in atlanta. Never followed up on.

How Spanish Flu Pandemic Changed Home Heat Radiators
"The northern Us, you might have had a steam radiator. That was way too hot, like so hot that you would actually throw your window wide open in the dead of winter, and it might have made a noise like this. Oh, so familiar. As it turns out radiators that worked too well are partly a result of the 1918 flu pandemic. You see, there was once something called the fresh Air movement called for people to be outside more and for there to be plenty of ventilation indoors. The fresh air movement had some prominent backers, says Dan Holla Han, He's author of the Lost Art of Steam Heating. Harriet Beecher Stowe teamed up with Louis leads who was running the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. And they had this traveling show where they talked about the national poison, which was the vitiated air and closed rooms where there's people breathing and And they're saying that you know, you've got to have a lot of fresh air. So people took this to heart and opened their windows Not so good during the winter, so heating specialists said to themselves. We need to size the radiators and the boilers to eat the building on the coldest day of the year with the Windows open. That might mean a room is too hot at one end and too cold near the window. At that point, they moved the radiator from the interior wall to under the window to heat that areas is coming in. This design philosophy took off after the 1918 flu pandemic and its threat of airborne viruses. So these radiators were designed to heat a room on the coldest day of the year with the window wide open. And then these radiators got even hotter as people switched from cold. Other fuels See oil and natural gas can be burned in smaller boilers. But often technicians ignored that. The person doing the replacement rather than properly size, it is usually going toe look at the size that's there and give you the same thing, which is crazy. Suddenly you have a super powered steam heater, which is one reason they earned a bad reputation, says Dan Holla Han. He knows that some city dwellers still open their windows during the winter. I could tell you in Manhattan by standing across the street and looking at the windows. Of an apartment building. What kind of heat it has. I could tell that from the outside just by looking at the pattern of open windows mate seem wasteful today, but steam radiators were a response to a respiratory pandemic. Just like the one that we're in right now.
Pray the Word with David Platt
Help Us to Obey (Ezekiel 23:49)
"Ezekiel Chapter Twenty Three Verse Forty Nine And they shall return your. Lewdness. Upon you. And you shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry. And you shall know that I am the Lord God. So, this is the last verse in a long chapter. The depicts God's people as two women. One Who represents Samaria? The capital of the northern Kingdom of Israel among God's people. And the other who represents Jerusalem the capital of the southern Kingdom of Judah. God's people there. And the whole chapter describes how. God showed his judgment how God showed his judgment on the northern Kingdom of Israel Samaria. By delivering them over to the Assyrians. And then how God showed his judgment among the southern kingdom, his people in Judah specifically that capital Jerusalem by delivering them over to the Babylonians. and. Then you get to the very end of the chapter and Gajah says very clearly. Very plainly after forty eight verses of this depiction of women who have committed adultery who have committed idolatry as God's people. At the very end God says, you shall bear the penalty for your central. Trie. A. You shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry as you hear that phrase. I just think this is a simple principle. I think about going into details a a discipline conversation that heather and I were having our children recently. And we've had this conversation up million times. It seems like with different children I when you disobey. There will be consequences like it is not good to disobey. Is Good to obey that leads to good things when you disobey that leads to bad things and that's The Clear simple principle that God is saying over and over again in the book of Ezekiel. And he says it right here you shall bear the penalty for your sinful idolatry idolatry. Is, not, good, it does not lead to good. Immorality disobedience is not good at does not lead to good. This seems so basic yet how often? Do. We need to be reminded of this. As we are tempted every day to disobey in different ways. And God says to us in his word by his spirit over and over and over again, it is good to obey it is not good to disobey. So in a fresh way today Oh God, we pray. Help us. To choose that which is good. Today. Or, if we're listen this is we're gonna bed and night stowe wake up in the morning remembering that it's good to obey listening this at the very beginning of our day or somewhere else like as always we have time left in this day God, help us to choose that which is good. Help us to obey you help us to trust you help us to worship you alone. God please keep us from idolatry immorality disobedience and all that flows from it. Today and tomorrow in the next day to choose obedience. In every second in every moment and every decision every word and everything we do by Your Grace Oh God help us to choose obedience and to experience your goodness. And God, even as we pray this. We we. Know Our tendency to disobey. And we are so thankful. Jesus. We praise you. All timidly for bearing the penalty do our sinful idolatry. help us never to get over this. That you Jesus have paid. The price endured the penalty the judgment that we deserve four, our sin on the cross. All Glory be to your name that we don't have to be afraid. Of the judgment, we will experience all ultimately in eternity because you have paid that price for us. All Glory to your name. So all the more help us to live in obedience today. Elvis to experience your goodness today as those who've been forgiven of sin free from sins power help us to walk in Worship Review in obedience to you in love for you in all that we do help us to choose obedience life love for you and everything we do today and tomorrow and the next the next day please in every moment we pray in Jesus name in the name of the one who is paid the penalty of sin for us in his name we pray.
5 Minutes in Church History
Scriptorium: John Bunyan & Persecution
"Welcome back to another episode five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're wrapping up our great time here at the Van encamping collection and the script Him here in Orlando Florida and we are standing in a jail cell while it's a replica of jail cell and and it is a jail cell for someone who is very crucial one of those towering figures in church history. None other than John Bunyan and here in this room that this may be like bunions jail cell complete with a very primitive bed or a number of artifacts and books related to John Bunyan. I there is an early edition of Pilgrim's progress with an engraving. It's interesting that these early editions of Pilgrim's progress progress were so read. They were just literally devoured by people as they passed from hand to hand and so copies. Just don't exist. They we're literally read out of existence as people just gobbled up this beautiful taxed that so well portrays vividly portrays the the pilgrimage of the Christian life. Well so here there's a would fragment from the L.. Stowe house there is a key to the Bedford furred prison and actual key from the Bedford. Prison reminds me of that scene in. Pilgrim's progress where Christian is just so despondent despondent and they're in the castle of giant despair. And they're locked deep deep down in dungeon and they're just absolutely despondent and then all of a sudden Christian remembers that he is a key and he reaches into the folds of his cloak and he pulls out the key of promise anti he with a shaking hand tries it in the lock and it opens the door and they come to another lock and opens that lock in another gate and it opens that lock and they escape and what a beautiful portrayal is of the promise. That is God's word and that's quite a key. Maybe bunion had that particular key in mind. When he wrote his text? You know Bunyan wrote other books. Right beyond the pilgrim's progress and one of them in true bunion scholars. Say that they. I think it's a better book than Pilgrim's progress. It's the Holy War and here too is a copy of the Holy War from sixteen eighty. Two and Bunion also knew a thing or two about suffering. Didn't he lost his first wife is oldest daughter was born blind and also he himself himself suffered in prison and saw the death of friends and also just personally suffered so in sixteen eighty four. He published advice to sufferers. And here. In this bunion room there is a copy of that as well. So all of these testament to the author John Bunyan and his wonderful classic. The pilgrim's progress all of that is here and the script Oria in Orlando well continuing our journey through bibles and texts related to the reformation. There is Fox's acts and monuments since I'm looking at a fifteen ninety six edition of course this book. Chronicles the MARTYRDOMS. Most of them happening under bloody Mary. Harry but Fox begins his story actually back. In the days of the apostles as the New Testament was coming to a close and Fox records forged the many centuries of martyrdoms and especially those martyrdoms related to the British reformation and next to it is a Bible. That is a stirring testament to one of those martyrdoms. It's in that great English tradition of Bible translations ends than that line from wickliffe. All the way up to King James. It's a Matthew's Bible at dates to fifteen thirty seven. It is opened the two pages and John and the reason it's open to pages and John is that they're on those pages. There's actually the blood stains means of a martyr of the British

Aviation Week's Check 6 Podcast
An Interview With John McKenna, Chairman of Recreational Aviation Foundation
"We're speaking with john. Mckenna who is the chairman in one of six co founders of the recreational aviation foundation or simply r._a._f. Korea created during a backwoods campfire discussion in two thousand three the r._i._f. Has developed into an organization that stretches from the pacific to the atlantic and beyond what exactly is the purpose of the r._i._f. I think our mission statement says it pretty well. It's to preserve protect and to maintain and creates recreational opportunities rare scripts for people across the united states komo early for recreational opportunities so we're talking about remote airstrips when i have in my mind is grass gris drips in the woods. Is that what we're talking about. That could be certainly what you might see or think of if you were to do the poster but they r._a._f. Has really taken to the fact that where people can go and enjoy themselves with their plane or have a fun time they also count and <hes> so we might sort of break it into two kinds of airports one which would be known as backcountry airport which might somewhat fit that descript or that you just suggested and the other is <hes> perhaps same front entry airport that isn't necessarily buried in the in the back woods or in bottom of a deep canyon if might frankly c._b._s. Not on the lakefront edger <hes> on the edge of town. I think of some in oregon that are on the beach people can frankly fly into their bonanza go for a hike or go set up their tent and bring their children or their grandchildren or friends and <hes> for a bike ride or whatever the case may be so the stereotype might be as you described. We'd like to think that it's expanding recreational use and preserving the fun places for people to go with an airplane. So how many airports like that are you counting and are they endanger of closure well. There are certainly some that are very definitely in danger and when i say danger there are activists that perhaps don't share the same interest in aviation that we all do and they would just assume that airplanes in any way shape or form place would go away and they candidly work at making that take place so there's certainly people who are actively taking to close certain airstrips in certain parts of the country then there are frankly ones where might go but at the other end of the spectrum they've just been forgotten about and there's some use but not a lot so people fly by and they asked the question. I wonder could you land there. Can i land there and our first filter is does it have some recreational value or some interest to it that people might enjoy once they get on the ground bill today. Today i find myself standing in stover mont and we spent a great day yesterday exploring some of this area with some friends many of which you would know touching down on grass airstrips all up and down the shores of lake champlain up near mount marcy and in the mountains of vermont bond and you may not think of that as that country flying but it was a landing in some spectacular places with spectacular views and lots of things extraju yeah actually i've been there and it's a beautiful part of the world i know you're from the west the news the taller mountains than they have in the east but that can be pretty rugged around stowe vermont well isn't that the fun part about airplanes and that is that we get the opportunity to see things that maybe aren't in our backyard and and yes. You're absolutely right. I might have been one of those previously biased people who thought that all the mountains in the west but i can assure you they're not <hes> <hes> somebody left behind right here in vermont and they they go up to some tall elevations and i'm convinced we don't have the corner on the market working out in the west funny so the r._a._f. Is sixteen years in to its existence into its program. How would you evaluate your record so apar- astonishing i think it would candidly i'm both at times stunned and more often humbled when you start out with six people who literally have an idea and sort of parked himselves around a campfire and you find yourself involved with an organization fifteen almost seventeen years later that has some ten thousand plus members scattered all across all fifty states in twelve or fourteen eighteen different foreign countries and you know bill. One of the most interesting things is the foreign members that we have is the r._a._f. Who i every once in a while get a chance is to engage with and their reason for belonging is they want to preserve what we've talked about here because it's probably already been lost in the place they live and they're willing to support it here just on the off chance that they may get a chance to come and do it themselves or they think that we should be pretty vigilant about this because we live in a very special spot that has some are unique freedom attached to it. What are the greatest challenges or obstacles to the r._i._f. Fulfilling its mission. It's probably not much different than most of our businesses or anything else and it's the people and the challenges we are nearly one hundred percent volunteer organization. Asian people are all volunteers. They all do this because they love it. It's surely always the <hes> the challenge to keep the right kind of leadership and people who <hes> have the time to devote to it to that end. We are blessed with a great deal of folks. That are are just passionate about this stuff so i may be you. Don't worry about the same things that others do but yet at the same time i do worry about the interest in aviation. I was just asked yesterday as a matter of fact what do you think of the drone industry and how will that affect what you're doing and we're about the places whereabouts saving the places and maybe my children or grandchildren will help them up way be he delivered to some of these special places in some sort of a vehicle that i don't quite understand yet today but if the place doesn't exist then perhaps they won't make any difference. I feel like we're on the right track. We're basically land conservation group that plies airplanes and probably not bad place to be not a bad place at all and you're at a very very good place right now up in sto- in thank you for your time and good luck with the program. Thank you so much. We appreciate all you do. We've been speaking with john mckenna the chairman and co-founder of the recreational aviation foundation this william garvey editor of business in commercial aviation magazine.

Those prices could go up by their nature has basically provided the clearing the decks of our surplus supplies that we needed to get.
