He sent me from hawaii in two thousand seventeen. That says hey. Chad ever heard of a hawaiian singer named aeko lou. Listen to this cover of stuck on you. it may be better than the original man I'm looking for oh. I'm sorry. I didn't see the line. Okay matt strickland. I'm sorry i didn't realize you glad to have you. Thanks for taking time for us. Story goes of virginia restaurant. Owner scored a victory in court after defying covid nineteen restrictions ordered by democrat governor. Ralph northam wsh. Atv reported what happened matt. What happened is I guess i give you a quick snapshot from the beginning Opened restaurant after coming home for the last time from iraq Back in twenty six and Well actually opened food truck that grew to a to a restaurant and twenty eighteen and everything was going great. Is that gourmet. Let's let's go matter listened to never do another interview without saying the name of the business. Fifteen times i got okay all right. Let's start. it started to get into the iraq thing because people like that. Okay all right well So it's been a lot of time to military and then spend a lotta time as a private military contractor in iraq and afghanistan Came home for the last time. After fighting the war on isis in iraq in twenty sixteen and And opened a food truck called gordon and they grew to two trucks and three trucks twenty eight. We opened the first restaurant version of gore and And like i said it was going. It was going great until last year in march when the when the kobe stuff broke out and When when the colds and stuff. I started you know like everybody else. I had no idea what it was about. So i took serious as well and listen to all the bs mandates that they put out which for us is restaurants where no dining was allowed only takeout. So i tried that for a couple of weeks. And i was actually it was costing me more money to be open than it was just close so i closed a closed down into the governor allowed dining again which was Not until june of last year and it was about that time when when he said You know restaurants and go back to done. And then i realized All of these mandates regulations that said he was putting into place We're not for health and safety the at all there's something something more than that And and it seemed like to me is that the government was just trying to control this Because these mandates were just so ridiculous and made no sense. There was no other explanation for it. And just to give you an example here in french here in virginia one of the mandates where nobody could sit at a bar now as a restaurant owner acapulco table up to the bar and you can sit at the table but you kisses at the bar itself and was sounds ridiculous. So you could. You had to wear a mask walking into the restaurant and then as soon as you sit down at your table you can take your mask off. So i mean just stuff that made zero sense and it was. It seemed like mandates and regulations that that they were putting into place just to just to kind of impose their will rule by force. so i I woke up. And i said listen. I'm not doing this anymore. It doesn't make any sense to me. So i started allowing My customers to make their own decisions as far as they if they want to wear masks cannot and if they if they're comfortable with sitting at the bar not and So i opened a business as usual back in june last year and I guess other customers were coming in and seeing. I wouldn't follow in all the kobe regulations. And they were calling the health department and Report me in filing complaints and things like that and They health department called me. Maybe twice between january and told me about these reports and the customers where Saying you know how when following the regulations and stuff but they never came out and enforced anything. It's signed an executive order Late in january and what. What was the part of that. Executive order was he he told osha which is a federal organization come out in conjunction with the local health departments and enforce the regulations Especially on restaurants and crack down on it. So that's what they did. Osha and health department came out late january and said. Hey can't have anybody to signature barney more. You need to make sure all your employees wear masks and everybody that walks into your restaurant is wearing a mask and So i i told him. I said hey listen make it. Make sense to me why. Somebody can't sit at a bar but they can sit at a table right next to the and i'm thinking about your regulations and he said well when they sit down at the bar and they take their mask off they interact with the bartender without a mask on. And that's how is that any different than sitting down at a table taking their basketball and interacting with the waiter or waitress which is allowed him and and he couldn't defend his position he couldn't give me an explanation that made any sense in his. His bottom line was well because the governor said so. And i told him i said listen to me. That's not good enough for me You know you wanna take restaurants down to you know from Sixty five seats to sixteen seats and nobody can sit at my bar. I gotta i gotta act like a police officer and make sure people are wearing a mask when they walk in the door. I said i'm not doing that. Man i said if i do that one everything. I worked my whole adult life for which i mean slowly dissipate. I'll lose my business. 'cause i can't can't run a restaurant but just sixteen seats in it. I mean the restaurant industry is already hard enough to survive in without any code regulations. You put those on. It's impossible man. After to say. I wanna make sure before we go to break. I'm gonna keep you for another segment. Folks can donate your at fourteen thousand thirty three dollars. I'd like to get you up to twenty thousand.

Building successful lives, one plane at a time with TeenFlight,
"Successful lives one plane at a time at the as air venture in oshkosh a group of oregon teenagers stand beside an rv. Twelve light sport aircraft answering questions. They have spent eighteen months building the plane on display and they are eager to put their expertise on display as well. The adults who quiz them are rightly impressed. The students are with teen flight. The high school arm of airway science for kids or ask which serves students in and around portland oregon team. Flight is the brainchild of erin. Figura ted miller and van's aircraft founder. Richard van grunsven. Who wanted to honor the memory of ask. Founder bob strickland by creating a program for high school students team flight. Young people are given an opportunity to build an aircraft that they will eventually be able to fly. The student built aircraft has showcased at oshkosh and then sold to fund the next build session. Van grunsven noted that this is the kind of program he would have loved as a young man for the first build. Classy offered space in his hangar at the aurora airport and agreed to oversee construction of one of his company's own kit planes the rv twelve quote. The twelve is a well-developed kit plane. He said we were confident. That with the help of adult mentors with the right group of motivated kids. They could get the job done. And the sex. A little. Bit about eric krause. Who was a high school junior when he joined the inaugural teen flight class in two thousand nine. He said whenever. I tell people in school about the program they'd say oh you're building an rc. Plane krause said nobody ever believed we were building actual aircrash if the naysayers could have seen the students mechanical skills on day one their skepticism would have been justified said krause. Some kids didn't know which side of a screwdriver to hold a few years. After graduation cross took his team flight build plan to interview and discuss the process of building an aircraft as a teenager the interviewers impressed and he landed the job. he's now a manager advanced aircraft and he believes the program taught him not only general mechanical skills but leadership skills as well the program's goal is not produce the next generation of aviators or aviation engineers students pursue those goals and ask provides as much support to them as it can including scholarships to pursue flight. Training figure keeps a broader goal in mind when thinking about the program's impact quote. Most of the kids that we work with go on and do interesting things and do creative things so they use the skills they learned in teen flight. He said we like to say that. We're not really teaching teenagers. How to build airplanes. Were teaching them how to have a fulfilling life with good interesting careers and to be excited about it. Van grunsven echoed that sentiment. We have found that the program can be most helpful for kids who maybe don't fit in on other things and maybe aren't doing well in school but when they're able to work with airplanes they get excited. He said we've had parents tell. Their children's grades went up after they went into the program. They work harder and they do better great story and i wish there were more programs like this around the united states and around the world

"What is cortege? What does it? What does it do? Why is it differentiated from other projects in the space? A. High level like your. Quick, pit dive into details. Right right. So high is that we? We saw the this deficiency around skill ability particularly around. Scaling Computation right because if you want to if you want to see blockchain's as a platform to run. Computation, which is probably the objective of. The and Another block chain of Sports Mark Contracts. A. Platform for competitions is quite precarious in indifference on dimensions right now, especially different dimensions of skill ability. Of course, there are many problems that attack me skill ability in different ways. Which shows to tackle the problem of over how many Strickland's sections it can run per unit of time. So basically, Skilling competition, that's where we started from. But what's really differentiates us from other scaling solutions the fact that we. Also. saw that there was another deficiency that was often overlooked. Namely the ability for people to develop. Smart contracts or APP logic using mainstream software stacks or using. Resources Right. So if you if you're going to develop a War Japanese. Solidity. For instance, you're going to have a language limiting. You don't have gossips like the final system or anything that an os with give to you. So what if we could take? Let's say the West like Lennox and run it in a decentralized way so that that's Basically our most. Unique. Opposition here. That's why we are second lear that scaling computation Yo preserving the the security guarantees of the line blockchain like sheer we also providing Like a fool west where people can develop their. The logic. And how do you do that? Let's let's say like. How do you? How do you maintain the level one security while providing that scale like it's the seems to be a trade off somewhere. Right so so basically we are. We moved from global consensus local consensus, right so imagine that you have the APP. If you're thinking about the the aucoin that's on the blockchain, you need basically the consensus of everybody because everybody's using is involving the ledger. Now. If let's say, let's take another radical exemplify wants to develop a chess game on the blockchain and I play chess with you. Right we are to only people that are interested in that in that match. Then thousand people running full knows they're not really caring much about what you're doing who is winning that game. So in that case, when you have a local consensus, it's much cheaper to just have the people that are involved that they're interested in in the in the competition, the results of. What is happening there to validate? Or to participate in whatever is going on for that yet. So So. What you do is that that you basically you allow the blockchain vice computations that are basically Lennox virtual machines they have. A boot, a file system by Dr They have an input tribe. They have a program that they're gonNA run and they have an output drive. So this basically specified on chain We can explain that for later on but these competition runs off chain on the on the van. And because if Yemen is fully deterministic self contained and it also produces miracle proofs. Of the. Of the states and the Merckel tree route to hash of its entire state. We you are I able to Make sure that all violating notes gets the same state at the end of the computation. And if they happen. To. Disagree Right. then. Another data can can start disputes. And proved to the blockchain, that's the first civility was. Involved in a fraud or cheating the result of the competition. So it's basically an optimistic approach von Daters glamour would would claim a result for consultation. And if someone happened to disagree with that result they can. Keep. Proved to the blockchain. Vets. Honest. Solution is. Actually true and enforce it in the blockchain.
Miami - Florida Gators Pausing All Football Activities After ‘Increase In Positive COVID Tests Among Players’
"Diversity. Florida has a cove in 19 outbreak among its football program. The Florida Gators have paused all football team activities following an increase in positive covert tests among players that puts Saturday's home game against defending national champion L s you in jeopardy.

Shutdown came three days after head coach Dan Mullen's comments about wanting 90,000 fans at Florida field to create a better home field advantage against the Tigers.
"strickland" Discussed on Knowing Faith
"Welcome to after the fact and knowing faith mini episode where we looked to take a big question and address it in just a few minutes typically the questions we consider will line up with our larger topic for the season and that is certainly true for our time today we are discussing Genesis one through eleven on knowing faith this season and today I get to chat with Dr Walk Walter Strickland Dr Strickland is the assistant professor of systematic and contextual theology at the southeastern Baptist. Theological seminary also serves as the associate vice. President of diversity. He is an author editor and contributor to many books including every waking hour baptist Christian tradition fossil of the world and playing theology for playing people which at our church were actually using for a year long theological program and we're loving it. So Dr, strickland welcomed after the fact, thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me. It's going to be here. Absolutely will here's our big question for today. Why is the doctrine of the Imago Day why is the doctrine of image bearers of God crucial for our current moment? So that's a massive question, which is what we're doing season and I think the importance for this particular moment is that the adversary in the world around us his trying to convince us that we are either what we do or appetites, and so I'll flush that out and say, well, first of all, neither of those can function as the seat or the essence of our person hood or who we are God does desire many of these things to be a part of our lives and so let let let's say. Take, for example, our work. So in genesis eleven versus one nine, we see the story of the Tower of Babel. And what they're doing there is that they are trying to make a name for themselves. So they won't be scattered across the face of the whole earth sort of summarize it very quickly and they're using the they're gone given gifts that God has given them to make him known in order to make their own name known, and so they're essentially seeing what they do being known by that as being the essence of who they are as people. But the reality is when we do that sort of thing, what we're doing is that we're looking to our work the work of our hands to do something that it was not designed to do. which is to give us meaning and purpose and value are meaning purpose and value comes because we're image bearers and then it's even enhanced even further by those who are in Christ as Christians because now we're a child of the king. and. So obvious, a work is a good thing. You know that was fractured by the fall. We've seen just history by thorns and thistles and what have you, but it's not inherently bad because it was given to us to do prior to the fall and got himself is introduced as a worker in Genesis chapter one as he is creating in separating and so forth, and so this is a wonderful thing that we to do in celebration of who God has made us but it only finds its value in worth if it's anchored in who we are as believers are as those who are image bearers. So that's work, then I mean even something like sexuality is a is a great topic for us to talk about as well which you know people are making that appetite or that of who we are the seat of who we are as people, the essence of who we are. As as a as image bearers and you know we. So this is this is what the culture is trying to do. The culture is justifying anything sexually because they're trying to make it essential to who we are, and so any sort of expression of that is appropriate and to reject the expression of that appetite is to reject the person whom which is why you know some folks like. Well, if you don't accept my sexual preferences, then you reject me as A. person a lot of Christians are like what I mean I'm not rejecting you on disrespecting I'm just I'm not going to go along with those preferences or against God's Word but I'm not rejecting. You won't because you know to be an image bearer to be a person for the world is to be sexual like sexual sexuality has become the baseline of who we are and as Christians the Bible we understand that sexuality is one of God's good gifts and in fact you know. Very, good gifts but the best gifts are the ones that could be most abused most powerfully and so That's work than sexuality, and then let's talk about ethnicity. You know. So this is an important thing about who we are God has made us distinct. There's going to be different ethnic as in the kingdom revelation. Chapter Five. Verse Nine Revelations Chapter Seven Versus Verse Nine and ten. So this is a part of who got us made us, but it's not the essence of who we are as people. And so this helps. As a person as an African American man to to not take everything as an attack against who I am as a human being but it helps to sort of mitigate the sort of difficulty of living in America when we have so much sort of racial turbulence going on. and. So my fundamental identifying quality is that of an image bearer of God and a child of King Jesus. So I can then better understand who I am as a person, but also the in familial relationship with people who are outside of my own ethnicity and a very real and powerful way, and so why is image bearing? So important especially today because we are tended to be working hollick's mark was highly over-centralised and ethnicity and race and things like that are driving wedges through even the people of God that I just lament and I think that if we understood what our fundamental identity was that it would help all those three areas well. Golly, I'm already regretting that we have time this out to be a short episode because I. I. I could sit here and talk to you about what we're talking about all day. Let me just ask you one quick. Follow up question because so whether it is work or at sexuality or ethnicity or maybe it's. The gifting of specific people or their preferences or? Even things that are not moral in nature. So to speak just like maybe this person's geared towards math and science, and this person's geared toward creativity and imagination How does does image bearing? This one shared identity does it squash all differences and distinctions? How was it the proper frame for our uniqueness as individuals Gotcha and so like God has so I have the passage here. So Genesis, one, twenty six, let us make men in our own image in our likeness and let let us you basically have give me the million over the. Birds of the air and so forth. and. So really what this does is this gives us a fundamental call and even in Genesis two fifteen when it starts talking about being vice regions, Co creators. So that's a very broad sort of a call for all of humanity to live in, and because we're particular people we live that out in unique ways, and then it sort of made manifest as got has required of us as A. Collective people, and so I think that we can be unified in our creative ability as mathematicians as writers as scientists or what have you as those who do literature but then it's all rooted in that creativity that is hearkening back to our creator is and then we just flush it out and unique ways. Yeah. I love that Dr Stricklin thank you for joining us on after the fact that you. Enjoy. After the fact is brought to you by Southeastern Baptist theological seminary. You WanNa stay with incredible professors like Dr, Strickland, head over to S. S Dot Edu, slash knowing faith, and discover just how accessible it is to study God's word. So that may go into the world was the good news of the also..

Some Conferences Are Determined: There Will Be College Football This Fall
"There There will will be be college college football football this this fall. fall. Maybe Maybe that that is is the the message message this this week week from from some some top top football football schools schools and and conferences. conferences. It It comes comes after after two two powerhouse powerhouse conferences. conferences. The Big 10 in the Pac 12 announced they were canceling their full seasons because of the Corona virus. NPR's Greg Allen reports how colleges that are planning to play hope to protect the health of their athletes. Even many hard core college football fans are skeptical how Khun well over 100 people on a typical team training play without spreading the Corona virus, possibly shutting down the season this week, three of the top conferences, the SEC, the SEC and the Big 12 said their plans this fall to play and do so safely. John Thrasher is president of Florida State University, which is part of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And what we frankly want to send is a message to some of the other schools that may be teetering on whether or not to play football. We think it's a bit in the best interest of our student athletes. For us to play football. We could do it safely and we can do it productively for them for fans, athletes and the multi $1,000,000,000 sports entertainment complex built around college football things looked bleak Tuesday. Two major conferences, The Big 10 in the Pac 12 canceled their fall schedules because of the uncertainty and health risk surrounding the Corona virus. The announcement by the remaining three of the power five conferences that they would have a fall season came after athletes began a hashtag. We want to play movement on social media. At Florida State Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton says he believes training and playing with regular testing and medical protocols in place. Maybe safer than not playing. You talk about 18 or 22 year old Just quarantine at the house. That's unrealistic. There's really there's so many other things that you know God, I'm going to go do which is not safe. So being here with my team, and all of us together is the safest forth. The college conferences are pushing back the start of their seasons to give them extra time to get ready and perhaps learn from the experiences of other sports. Putting players inside a bubble like the N BA has done in Orlando isn't feasible for student athletes who live on campus and have to attend classes. University of Miami coach Manny Diaz believes college football can learn from the English soccer leagues, which resumed play in June. Without fans with so much at stake. He believes his athletes will be careful. They're aware that they've got to keep their bubble small. They understand the value of what a mask doesn't and who that protection If you're around people who don't have mass on, you've got to find another place to be, but with all that there's risk and going ahead with the college football season. One concern that was reportedly a factor in the decision of some conferences to postpone play is new information about a heart condition. My card is that has been linked to the Corona virus. It's an inflammation of the heart that can lead to long term problems. Announcing its decision to play the Big 12 conference, said any players who test positive for the Corona virus would receive an E K g echocardiogram, cardiac Emery and further heart tests before returning to play. Gabe Feldman, the director of the Sports Law program at Tulane University in New Orleans, says If the schools are transparent and take the right precautions he thinks they can play. Every school in the athletic department has to be very clear with all of their athletes. About what the risks are and what the unknowns are. And then the athletes have to have a choice. It's one thing to play. But can there be fans in the stadium? University of Florida athletic director Scott Strickland says he hopes so We want to be on a have fans, and we hope we're in a position to do that. But you see, this is the NFL season now starts earlier than ours, and A lot of NFL teams and still have a made determinations. Yet that could be the riskiest. Part of all some schools were opposing plans that would limit attendance to 25% of a stadium's capacity, which would still bring together a huge crowd of 20,000 or more cheering, screaming fans.

A New Path to the NBA: Woj on the G League's Program
"Woge? It has now been three weeks since number. One ranked high school recruit Jalen Green announced on instagram. That he'd be passing on numerous college offers to instead. Become part of the new improved G. League professional pathway program. That's what it's called Q. Explain what it is and how it began Meena. It's it's really a bridge between the end of the wounded done era in college basketball in the NBA and what had existed which was really limited options for an elite high school player to do anything but go to college basketball. They put this program place. Two years ago and they started off with players they fell would be first. Round picks were highly regarded coming out of high school. One hundred twenty five thousand dollars a year would be assigned to League team and then you would enter the following years draft. They could not get anybody in that. I really year year and a half to commit to that program. A couple reasons. I think even more than the money agents and those who would advise high school players advised against the idea of going to the G. League where it seven. Let's say eighteen years old. You're going to be playing against grown men in there who played college who played overseas who've been in the NBA back and forth maybe mid twenties late twenties and they would hurt your intentionally hurt your draft stock where you be physically overmatched. It is a difficult lifestyle especially for young person. It's not charter. Flights it's not four seasons and Ritz. Carlton's it's the southwest flight connecting it midway Chicago to get the Iowa City. Adam silver was very moved by the fact that Lamelo Ball in R J Hampton to the top players in this two thousand twenty draft when to Australia next year take my talents to the NBA. Laura Hawks next year I will be going overseas to play an Australian basketball even with the New Zealand. Breaking choke deals in that five hundred thousand dollar a year range and there was not really an option for them. Here there are things we should be doing differently. So that for an American player who decides college isn't for me and I want to spend fulltime devoted to the game of basketball. That's my best chance to be in the NBA. There should be an alternative opportunity in the US spurred silver to push ref- Abderrahim. Who is the president of the G. League she and Rod Strickland Former all-star Mba guard who also works for the G. League in the NBA as part of this program? They've been out in the field. They've been out talking the families players and coaches and they certainly explained to Adam silver. We've got to change this program. So they updated this program specifically for players like Jalen Green. What exactly does it look like now. This is essentially a select team that will be comprised of the players coming out of high school and then veteran players who might otherwise be in the G. League who would get paid comparable salary to come play here. Play a mentor. Ship role to these players. Perhaps players on the back end of their career might like to who might have an I- already on coaching or working in a fraud office will working for the League and also realize that. There's going to be a great deal of scouting attention paid to this group of players. Nba and that. This might not be a bad place for them to still be seen as viable players right now. So that's the makeup of a roster. The coaches will be coaches that people have heard of with NBA coaching experience. Some of them former head coaches and they'll play a schedule that will include G. League teams but not a fulltime jelly schedule. So they'll play perhaps exhibitions against G. League teams. They might play national teams. Who might be touring from different countries? Different parts of the year. I was told they might go to Australia. Where there's an NBA Academy maybe play some Exhibition Games? There and stay there for awhile and train and move around and now the program became more appealing for the top level player. And you've seen now if you players make that leap when you say. It's more appealing in the financial. Incentives are better. How much better we talking? Well Jalen Greens deal with the G. League is around. Five hundred thousand dollars that includes incentives. I'm told that there's a base salary and then there's incentives for essentially just completing. Maybe it's a community service program or a life skills program things that are part of it that they disincentivize financially now. Every player is not going to get five hundred thousand dollars. Jalen green was a number one player in his class. And if you listen to John Devonian Mike. Schmitz are dropping analysts. And I listen to those guys. They tell me that he would have competed to be the number one. Pick in this coming draft and right now he's you know projected to be that in the two thousand twenty one draft so there was. I think a great credibility for the NBA The G. League to get a player that caliber come into this program that he might be a little bit of a Pied Piper for others but they're not going to pay all these guys five hundred thousand some of them the pay more than the one twenty five but they're really negotiating that and remember that. Those players inside endorsement deals. If there's somebody who wants to pay them to wear shoes jailing green again is is a player who see your companies have great interested Not all the players are going to get big endorsement deals and then there is a component that they will go back. There's a partnership with Arizona State and with the NBA. And you could go back and get your degree hate for by the League later on at some point and so those are the benefits of this for players who decide. They don't want to go to college or meetings. In some instances where players become eligible and can't go play college basketball. You mentioned that players. Who Do this can also get endorsement deals? Which at the same time this is happening the NC Double A. Just came out and said were exploring the idea of letting our college players also have endorsements with of course many caveats and limitations this being the NCW TC. All of this is being connected while the shaves but exploring for quite a long time. They always seem to sort of stay in exploration mode. And when you start to dig down into the fine print of what they talk about doing. It isn't what maybe the headline was of of trust. Release or a report about it. I will say this being a part of the. Nba's thinking was that they were reacting. I think a little bit to the Condoleeza Rice commission slash report which a couple years ago essentially said the NBA should do away with one and done. We must separate the college track from the professional track by ending one and done the NCAA stance was that the players who do not want to be in college. There should be an avenue for them to bypass college and that we should take them in here if they don't want be here and so the NCAA on one level has encouraged this of the NBA. Now part of the problem is the NBA and the Players Association. They have not been able to agree on the terms of ending one and done we call on the NBA and the N. Bpa power here to once again make eighteen year old eligible for the NBA draft so that high school players who were drafted may proceed directly to the NBA in theory. Both of them both sides the union. The League would like to end one and done. There was a sense that that this would have gotten done last year. But there are terms of an agreement that they can't come to to end it. And this may be shelved now all the way until the next collective bargaining agreement two thousand twenty four twenty five so for the NCAA right now like this is what they asked for and whether or not they loosen the ability for players to earn money in college or off lightness or however that happens then. I think that will impact this. But let's I still think there's going to be a lot of players who would rather go to college because by the way meaner if you WANNA get paid. There are plenty of places in college basketball that you can go and make money equivalent to what the Julius paying. And that's that's just a fact you're referring of course to the fact that it's an open secret that college kids get paid under the table. Me Knock. I've broken a few stories along the way. I don't think I'M BREAKING MATT. One of your with you right now.
Oliver Wellington & Neil Mody: The No Effort Approach To Promotion
"Today's nice guys episode. We dig deeper into what? Why and how? With headliner founders. Neil mody I think I got that right. Neil mody and Oliver Wellington we're going to talk podcasting promotion and welcome guys to the Nice guys on business podcast and you did get it right where we're glad to be here. Thanks for having you guys are welcome in and Neil so everybody knows your voice. Neil can you? Can you say hi so everybody knows who you are when you first start talking ahead? Neil Haya okay that is neil and Oliver. Please share your voice because you said although you go second. You're smarter than than Neil. Is that correct now? I actually didn't say but Yeah this is my voice so it is now and we sound the same tough. Well maybe maybe for the first couple of questions you can say. Hey this is Neil speaking your. Hey this is Oliver speaking. That's probably a good way to tune in for for a Nice Guy Community. It's so rare that we actually have two people that were interviewing. I thought. Maybe it's because people are so repelled by me that they just don't ever WanNa come on at two at a time and but I see this is the actual a very good partnership that you guys have. We've you're cutting yourself to To shore but y'all overnight worked together for two companies now so over a decade. So we're we're we're attached at the hip on what's interesting is so my partner Strickland Bonner who co host. The Friday shows with me we do too interviews and one just stricken I shoot shit and talking about business and other fun stuff about our personal lives You know we both have what we would call both are zone of excellence. Zone of genius and Strickland's zone of Excellent improbably even gravitating towards zone of genius our our systems and creating great processes in a spreadsheets. And I suck at that stuff and I tend to find that my zone of genius or zone of excellence may be gravitating towards my zone of Janus is working in the relationship and sales space. So why don't you? I share where you guys. Kinda fit in with each other and then we'll talk a little bit about headliner and in some of your successes that you've had well I will. This is Oliver speaking. I will say that most people that know nealon. I think it's funny that we worked together. 'cause we're very different trying to explain myself by actually describing. Neil and so you can imagine the opposite okay. Nail is very technical very analytical very logical. He's very patient. I am kind of odd. Not those things as much and so like I don't know if Sarah Zones of excellence I don't know if I really think about things in that same way. But in general I. Can you know work a lot with our community building? You know working with users at our last company. We were with bloggers. I kind of lead the community outreach and community building there And then you know we're startups. We juggle a lot of the other kind of West exciting tasks that startup as to. But Neil and I actually kind of are a little bit of a two headed monster. When it comes to different projects will work on. You know all types of aspects of projects together. So so Oliver would you. Would you consider yourself of the two of you? Would you consider yourself the more client facing side of the business and you would think that but no okay so wait is so so neil is the is the tech expert and he's the client facing site so. I'm trying to figure out what the sandwiches there. Yeah so if you think about it right like we cover you know. We're working with larger companies and then we also work with just a huge array of podcasters. Right so if you think about the community of you know your podcast or you're just starting out and wants to get in and try out these new tools like that's kind of what I work with. Neil works with the background is acknowledging but also does the the more B. Two B. sales stuff at the higher level sue. Okay got it. I'm wearing a tie dye t shirt right now. I saw that and I and I appreciate and respect that I probably for most of my. I'm fifty five so for most of my My teenage years and even beyond I probably I look in my closet. I don't know if I have any of my tie-dyed shirts. I think my first ex wife decided that she was going to throw them all away like so. How about you Neil? What's tell me a little bit about where yeah either Describe Oliver to me or describe yourself to me either way totally. Well I think I'LL OLIVER. Those around about way to say for his excellence is a is creative juices and specifically community building so. I think those two aspects are like really big Boats in our last company in this on soap so yes this is just some background. We were one of the biggest content recommendation companies On the Internet it's called it was called N relate so if you've ever read an article in at the bottom those links of what else to read We were one of the biggest providers of that and our biggest market was in the blocks gear. So if you're a blogger circa two thousand nine two thousand two thousand eleven is a pretty good chance used our software. We're on over like one hundred thousand sites and so on and Oliver was responsible for really growing that Community building it serving it Working with them to really refine our product and then I guess yeah for myself I guess I mean I just yeah very technical background And so I'd say I really liked to think hard in deep and long about problems and problem solving different types of things so that's probably mine. If I had to come up with one let me ask Oliver. Let me ask you a question just because I know that many of the time some of some of the challenges that our podcast clients have as we are talking to those that are in our turnkey podcast community. 'cause I said I'm going to really work hard at trying to to wear a couple of different hats here. I WANNA wear the head of the podcast as a podcast producer in the owner of a production company. But I also want to talk to the entrepreneurial base. That's out there. But let's just talk to the podcast for a quick second because it sounds like you've had a considerable amount of success in this basin so let me direct this dollar for just a moment. What do you think is the is the biggest hurdle that people have to get over in order to start building community because that's one of the biggest challenge that talk about the big three and podcasting. It's how do you build community? How do you grow influence? And how do you make money while money and influence or important? It's really challenging to do any of those things without a community. So can you share? Maybe some of the some of the maybe some of the mistakes some of the things that you see that people should be leaning into when it comes to building community. I really think we've always taken a very kind of basic approach to this. It works and that's number one Listen to people's feedback to enact that feedback Three let them know about it. And that's kind of the cycle. We follow right so you release something thinking people will use it someway the they might use it the way you intended. They might not make sure when they tell you. Hey I wish it did this that if if you can do that for them in the nasty blast for that you make those changes and then over time you build the product that people really want and it'll somewhat naturally it gets spread around the best way people hear about us is word of mouth and so that's kind of what we've totally focused is just getting a great product out to people and continually improving it.
"strickland" Discussed on The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
"Timid nature by which I approach life. Yeah pretty much pretty much So that's who we were talking earlier now also originally borough. Why don't you share a little bit about what you do who you are? And why the heck you're here at J. B. Allergy live. I came here to hang out with you. Wow that's Dan a couple of things number one I love the fact that he's touching me because one of my love language is of course is touch. The second thing is the dulcet tones. This is your second love languages touch. Your I love language is. We'll have exactly. I came here. Just hang out with. Is He's touching exactly so get this. I went to Bhutan. Time I've spun a baton baton ton is a country where what they measure is the gross national happiness as your product is just in the Himalayas right and so you fly in past Mount Everest. You cut in through the mountains. It's Super Shaky. You Land and you know baton. There are two stop lights in the entire country. It's kind of like Elsa Gunda. I and I went up to tigers net. So if you if you look tiger's nest online you'll see it. You have to hike all the way up. A mountain down a Gal and superstars and super crazy and then you get there and the monks that hang out. There are there for three years three months and three days without ever leaving tiger's nest unless there's an absolute medical disaster was interesting the monks that I've met Nelson. No they're usually there for the weekend and it's full of partying at South. Who's all right? Oh Man I don't even get that what. How so. You've actually had a chance to meet monks before so what happened was I got there. And it's a way for lunch and the monk comes up. What do you normally does he? He takes his little finger he puts his thing and he puts a little DAB on your on your forehead and he blesses you and off you go in four seconds or less even though he's there for three years three months heard as he's in hurry second it was lunchtime right and they have to empty the monastery at lunch for an hour. According to the law he looks at me and said why are you here and I looked at him straight in the eyes and I said I came here to meet you and then we spoke to twenty minutes paying attention to the other mercy on some level. Are You GonNa Somehow Tie that back? Because I thought I knew I thought you were gonNA. You're about to make the corner and I will about connecting and and making connections so bringing in bringing home for me originally I was GonNa make you take it. Even further outside picking a deep dive whatever either direction. What school is. If you're a serious martial artist the one reason why you like to have your hands on somebody if you could take him out right. So he's about raspberries about the slim. Our heads to you know that the original handshake. Yeah do you know why a handshake shake in ancient times was I am holding no weapon? I am not really a weapon. I'm showing you that. My hand is empty so basically that show of peace. So it's the same thing as originally. He's got his hand on her shoulder. He's like this is my defensive position because in case you do some crazy move. As long as I have physical contact with you. I could crush you right now. The second was that a good analysis. Originally it kind of works like that. Yeah I love so the question originally like voice that I would that I would be asking is and I think you probably know the question. Same Question I asked many of the people that come on the show. And what is the question circling? Why is it that you don't have a podcast? Your Voice I mean I just. I read their own book ridgely. Well you know yeah I think I probably should have podcast something. We should consider some we talk about. The there is a joint venture partnership involved in that somewhere down the road I had we get behind the sitting at a table earlier with richly. He is absolutely one of the people that we WANNA talk more to over. The course I've had a conversation with ridgely and I don't even remember how we actually originally connected on that conversation but it was one of those that I was very rare that I actually take notes during conversations so I was taking notes. He sent an email. I have a whole series of sentences. He gave me like like I hold a second. You wrote some stuff down. You even emailed it to me after and it was something like in the beginning the stuff that came immediately to you g you like close relationships or partnerships argue is trust important to you. Trust is very important to me or something you remember. Do you remember any of the lines. Of course it starts out like I'm Doug Sandler and I believe in relationships that are based in trust. Oh my gosh. She even remembers the conversation which means that he is either a wise man. Or He's he's gotten says the same things over pretty wise. I think the first thing is originally is a guy that we need to get to know better over the next couple of days but the second thing is in the course of the podcast we need to have more stories that will top the previous stories. I think the only way we're GONNA talk that monks story rise if we talked to Ann about stuffing. Brad Pitt's copies. That's the only story that I can think of that. Would top the muck swimming. We'll tell you when I spent a year at a monastery with about is about the top. Vinnie monks because my mother. I was one of those bad kids that you never wanted. Your kids to how he was at boarding school was at boarding school with walls. That were seven yards thick in one of the eight wonders of the world in Full Lake. Robes what did you. What did you do to get there? I created a bomb. Blew up wall. That exploded this whole bunch of dirt all over a road that block the road and my mom got really upset about that. I was sixteen. Did you really do why the beauty of it is originally is I would say originally probably in your forty s originally with what you said it was? It was free nine eleven so I'm thinking it was pretty really today. If you were to do that he would be in jail for the rest of where I grew up Francisco Franco. The dictator was in charge. And the town that we lived in built fireworks they built rockets so they built the ones that at the end of those fire displays where the whole sky lights up all right. That's what they built in my town and if you live there you can go buy them at wholesale and I went down and I bought a bunch of them and I put them together and put a wire around them and pulled all the rockets off and put one fuse and creative mom because my stepfather beat the shit out of me on a regular basis and I was like this really dark. Turn a really really dark turn this business and and then they sent me away to the monastery all right so we we obviously have some additional stories to tell Atlanta win. Ridgely comes on the show might be supposed to say. I think this is one that you end is should be. It should be doing together when I agree. I one word Chris before we wrap up with originally okay. I happen to know really speaks five languages so in in some other language other than English could you say? Why are you listening to the? Nice guys on Business Channel. We're not and can you say one other language now. Why are you even listening to the Nice guys on business? Simple sooner business right there. That's the you know what we gotta do. We gotta get that studio quality so we gotta get him in a when he comes in records on our show. We'll get into maybe the entire intro and liked it. I'll tune in. It'll be like what the fuck is show and Shit Right. I love this. This is so before we wrap up you. Tell us what you're about and how people can get in touch with you if they want to talk to you about like your amazing service but bookable as he is doing that. Could you do it as a as an interpreter? Like someone that comes only if I say in a different language and then come back and say the shame. Say What if what if I did it with the accent of one of the languages that I speak. Okay that's fair. That'll that'll that'll be fine. And at the end of that could you? Just say Steve. O'brien take us out of here. That'll be fine okay. Whenever you're ready for the strict during the Mike Okay so what I do is help the people to figure out their mind. Thank you know. They're superpower that Kryptonite where they come from. Why the rest of care about it.

"Got all series. Let's see how this works. Let's just try. Let's just try. We have no call to action for someone to actually buy anything of ours. We would like to buy something from somebody in our community we would like to. We are genuinely interested in buying products and services from those that are in our community. And here's what I'll do. Here's here's what we will do. I would like to invite somebody that is in our community to share what they do on our show business. Podcast this is a show that has several thousand listeners per episode thousand plus episodes already out we have a we have a huge platform for for giving you the opportunity to share your message with the world. Here's the kicker you have the ability to sell. Whatever you are selling directly to me in strickland huge. You just have to come on the show and convince my community that it's the right thing to do if my community says that I should buy from you then we would might seriously consider what you have to sell. But it's got to start with them actually coming on the show and sharing their philosophy with us and their products and services. What do you think this is an interesting strategy? It's a reverse accountable action. I kinda like it and It would help if you didn't already have a podcast. Just say to say so everything except for that last part whether you have or don't have a podcast is is not relevant in this particular case but I am interested in having you on the show to share what you do with our community. We want to talk about the stuff that you've done. It's good the stuff that is still. You're still working on the same stuff that you hear about weekend and week out from the podcast. Let's do this. So how do you get there? How do you get? Let's see how would they? How would they share this with us? I would send them to the The end of the guest inquiry page. But it's GonNa get lost there because there's going to be so many well maybe we could have some like you need to put to to only or some secret word in there so we know that you actually listen to this podcast. And that is the offer that you are taking. Okay so here it is. There are several areas on the application. I look at every single application. That comes in most of them. Don't make it through the door because we are busy. We get a lot of them. Pink Tutu Pink Tutu. Oh wait a minute Tutu's optional. To do what are we usually? What were we doing for? Optional was the. That's what we did before like ages ago. Okay so we'll we'll do that again on the guest inquiry pages go to Nice guys on business dot com. That's it just click guest inquiry and in any of the comment area. Just put pink Tutu or two two optional to to just say the word to to to t- you think yeah and then we'll do it. I think we can do this. I think this is actually a. This is a good point. I don't know where it takes us. I don't know what exactly what he gets us but maybe some interaction. Yeah Yeah Absolutely. You know what else we can do what you know. There's a cocktail party. Starting ten minutes okay with all the other. Jv Go talk to them. We interview them right now. Oh we're going to do like little commercials for them. Well we could talk to him and just make the rest of the show. I mean this is going to be like a real business advice show. Maybe we shouldn't even aired on Friday. But you know since we have nothing else for Friday and that's actually tomorrow. We're recording it on Thursday. I'm editing it it's usually for you. Should we came up with the idea of having the Friday? Show be the show we we. We were ahead of the game six Just in the last time we recorded on Saturday I can't change the Friday. Took all right. So here's what we're going to do. The next sound you're going to hear is the sound of a cocktail hour. It's going to be the sound of clinking glasses of people enjoying themselves. And then of microphones being shoved in people's faces. That don't WanNA talks but we did it in an essay and I think we did a hell of a job to. I think we do too so we have no idea where this is going to go. But we hope it's entertaining and if it's not then. Hey Fuck you got your money's worth so here's what I think we should do. See those down there. What are those stand up? Stand up banners think we should take wanders to the cocktail hour right up next to and just stand there let people come on. What are you guys know? That probably would be too. It's too pushy. Sponsor is that we are sponsoring the event. We the ability to do that. We could wondering cocktail hour. That would probably piss off that that sponsor so. Why don't we just walk up to people and talk to them? We'll do that okay. So the next time you hear clinking glasses cocktail hour jake dug and strict nice guys on. Business. Don't take us out of here yet. See what Brian. We'll be right back.

But it's not so much in that place is GonNa find the name of it while. Oh you're doing the next The next and that one's actually in El Segundo it's not like Manhattan beach area. Remember where it was That is also GonNa Purple Bar in El Ciganda. Oh it's like the Tiki Lounger the T. Purple Orchid that's what it's called the Purple Orchid. There's a heavy was not having. It was not that it was a very crowded when we went your area Internet connection again. Doug I know it's okay. It is not usually well. Jj Aj's downstream and video downstairs. I'm sorry sorry I love the I love the description of the Purple Orchid. There's a heavy industrial field to the city but the purple orchid a divy Tiki Bar. Just around the corner from Main Street brings a lighter torch to the city pass by regular smoking under the neon purple sign and enter a tropical typical Mecca of fruity drinks and kitschy decor. That is that is definitely the Purple Orchid. We should meet their. That's totally cool place to me totally. It's absolutely -etplace we gotta meet. I can't do it though on on Saturday night because that really is a night that that also comes alive any other night of the week. It probably actually gets crowded. Well are they open during the day. Do we want to do this in the afternoon. Because I mean so where this is good. Yeah I mean where would we do it in the the evening on a Saturday night. where a wooden be crowded anyway all right so the Purple Orchid is? Let's let's let's set that let's set. That is the place well well and because I don't think they have food there.

Elsa gun dough Yes the slice and pint behind is right around the corner from The Purple Orchid and people that wanted to get a slice of pizza and then meet us over there after they had a nice little meal could do that. There's also also plenty of other places to get to get food but Let's let's plan on meeting on Saturday night. let's call it at You WanNa do eight. PM Well didn't. We just finished saying Saturday evening. It's going to be crowded anywhere so earlier Saturday. That was the okay. That's fine. I I didn't realize the day drinking was the way that you wanted to to go. It's not not necessarily like about encouraging day drinking but I think logistically Chris you know what if nobody's GonNa GonNa fucking shop anyway. It doesn't matter I I just I don't know I was thinking if we did like the Tiki bar in the afternoon. Four or five then we could go somewhere to eat Afterwards Oh okay. Well we could do that. You know. It's interesting when you look at Either tripadvisor or or Yelp or one of the places they usually give you like the top ten in of nightlife or the top ten restaurants. Have you ever seen that if you go to. So they only have actually four places for nightlife and I'll could. It is number three of four. That's pretty nice. Nice okay. Well we'll come up with a time but just now if you wear if you are in the L. A. Area the Purple Orchid is going to be the place that we're going to be we just don't have the time yet so just stay.

I've been making it every morning for months now and I've completely eliminated the cream in my coffee by adding Coconut Oil And and A little bit of butter and then whipping it. Up in the in the bullet blender loving it loving my my bulletproof coffee. That's my commercial coffee. Okay let's get jared. We have five voice mails from Jerry. Okay here we go. Hey Gay checks jared here Tuesday about fifteen minutes and you you guys just talking about people trying to get in to the facebook group and fucking just forgot his name already anyways the guy has in six hundred groups and nothing profile. It's gotta be a fucking baton if he's not he's not interesting enough to be in our our crew anyway so they say was you guys. Were talking about download and you think we lost you. Know Two or three people with the length of the Episode last week and all I gotta say is you know I was only on part of this show so I listen to all two hours of it. Ah But there were a few people that are on the whole thing so it may not show a play count you know they may have download. It skipped it because they were on the entire call all so no need for them to listen to it. That might be why your numbers are off. So don't panic you panic Kathy. See this week numbers. And you've dropped ten people down to fifteen dollars PRIEM. Maybe worry or whatever it is. I can't do math anyway so I can't give you guys a hard time doing it up and I promise I will call you again and harass you some more. Maybe today who knows and he does keep that promise four more times. So let's get on with it unless you gotta overpaid delegates boy smell number two for Tuesday. She's a Tuesday alright so I didn't even play anymore the episode. I remember that I forgot to include this in my last message chicken Doug was talking about. How is there a trap door in the back of your own so that the hamsters he is talking about your attack coming from the guy who spends thousands of dollars on the phone and still has trouble with the Internet with his? What four four thousand dollar computer king? It connects always having issues. Dude I think your gerbils are doing just great. Compared to whatever the hell his kids might be cockroaches. It just wasn't the apple devices that's why they can't Can't do anything anyways. Just had to throw it out there documentation. They they are. They are trained albino mice just nothing different than that. Come on come on and they run out of batteries very quickly too so Okay hey extent here. It's Thursday voice no number two and hang out. I play remember Only only having thirty something to keep in mind is where you as an advertiser typecast. Where do you even talk doc about not like you start off the nice guys and mentioned these episodes because there's no reason you broke it off because he didn't want him associated so you can't expect it to grow because you know we're at the time to listen as about where we draw the line? It's done that for you. Yeah Yeah I mean he is he is right. I mean we really did not do a great job of promoting it but we were just thinking I I guess maybe Foolishly thinking that those that wanted to listen and and it may be. This is what happened. Those that wanted to listen followed us over and we didn't promote it anymore so so shit happens. Let's move on. I mean let's take the state the take Dominic Rinaldi's Approach to this unless shot up and just either. We made a decision. We decided that we were getting out of the the NGO F- shows so we are back over here on this channel and we're gonNA have a good time with this and if you're listening over here and you're not enjoying this then then. Maybe the Monday and Wednesday episodes besides would be better for you. You'll just know you'll be you'll be able to skip Friday's and that is quite cool and we are comfortable with that now that there's anything wrong with that skipping Friday's but it's another nothing wrong with giving money and Wednesday to Friday to for at least those thirty people are are dedicated. fucker fans wave. I am curious. What the numbers are going to be like? Now that we've done this the interesting okay here we go number four. Hey actually already up so when I first loaded up I'm like holy crap most an hour episode. These guys thought they couldn't do it anyways. I'm the the episode and boy. He's an art time opposite. Might have to dump this one. Should you guys I just want to put four you that back when you split. It shouldn't do it but hey we heard our thing you write Shit Shit. I totally forgot what I was GONNA say. You don't worry I'm sure it will come back to me and I'll call back and let me know I'll eat as our place. Ace maybe other solid comes to me. They'll hold your breath on that though I love. I love the fact that jared wanted to remind us that he'd we never wanted us to go to the other channel to begin with. Yeah true US right.
"strickland" Discussed on The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
"Host Doug Sandler Hey so welcome back Nice Guy Community. Guess what we are here in. It is a Friday and guess what today is today is no guest Friday. That is how every Friday is going to be. But I do not just have a guest here today I actually have a co host so your name was strickland. Bonner that for every every episode for the last maybe Four years five years he actually was introduced but I think since episode like when did we on a three episode two hundred. We're here a lot longer than that. So welcome strickland to the Nice guys on business. PODCAST CO host partner and friend of mine. Thanks Doug you know. It's funny we've been using the same intro for a thousand episodes right right. It had my name on it even though I haven't actually been on the show for the last Seven hundred or so right I'm not really true. I was on the Tuesday Thursday for a long time but anyway and then as soon as we get a new one. That doesn't have my name on it here. I am back again. So so what are you gonNA do are you. Are you going to change the intro and Altro back. I don't know keep you say what does it doesn't matter so Nice Guy Community just snow that yes we We did stray a little bit but we came back. You know every once in a while you'd try a project that just is not Does not work you know how many times it Edison and tried to re to try to invent the lightbulb over two thousand times. How many times did the The Germans tried to bomb Pearl Harbor. The always. Oh that's great. That's great I don't have any Steve. O'Brien quotes from Animal House. I need no I think we. I think we mentioned that. So so if you are here and you're listening and you kinda thinking. Hey who is that other guy while this is actually strickland bonner he has been here ear for literally a thousand episodes but he kind of plays a behind the scenes role on this portion of our show so I wanted to reintroduce him officially actually to you and then we'll explain the project that went horribly wrong. I think we should explain that project. The thirty five that have made their way back here hopefully lose any of them but we should probably explained explain what happened over the last seven years I mean episodes well and you know. I really haven't been gone really that long. I think it's only been about six months. 'cause we ended up doing. I don't no no. That's sixty episodes of the nice guys. Can we curse on here now. Doug I think so as long as you as long as we carry the the the explicit moniker and the explicit label. I think we can say any say and do anything. You know what. It's our fucking show. We can do anything that we want so we decided to see. What was the Tuesday Thursday show from here about six months ago? All into the Nice guys. Fuck Ary and just do it separate and keep our the clean channel with interviews and then sort of the dirty channel so to speak where you have two the blue shell. You know if it's like you got to punch in the code right turn the TV on Champs carotids controls exactly and so we decided we're like hey you know we get. I don't know probably twenty five hundred three thousand downloads. An an episode of the Nice guys on business and we thought. Let's see how many of those people will follow us to the to the fucker. He and from the looks of it. You guys were not paying much. Saw Came with us. We really really appreciated you. We decided that after six months when we only still have the thirty of you that you I know what you guys can come back and listen over here right this line so welcome back welcome back or maybe I should let us say that said that is actually how you've always introduced the show so please continue. Can you welcome back. Welcome back my name's Strickland Bonner on the other side of the microphone. Mr Doug Sadler this. This is exciting strict I think this is this ushers ushers in a new era for the nice guys on business it it just goes to show you that you don't have to stick to your guns if some of the things that you are actually working on don't work workout and I don't want to call it a total collapse but it was pretty much a pretty much a bomb I would say yeah. It was a little rough and then also I think think we definitely got to the point. Where we're you know? We're we're stretching for material. Bet So what we're going to try over here is the Friday. Show all the other things we you're doing suny damn interviews. You need to do three a week. It's getting kind of ridiculous right so we're GONNA come back here on Friday. We're going to try a couple of things We're going to try try. Oh this is what. Let me write this down. I think this is important. I actually got to be. It's going to be important that I know I should be ready. You know what I don't have a pen our remember this sir. I hope I remember what are we doing. It's a very loose plan anyway. I'm thinking you know we're we're GONNA still be ourselves right but what we'll do is we are because everybody else has taken Oscar Wilde so we are going to who on Friday We're still going to be ourselves but we are going to try to lean back into the the business advice even though we're still gonNA take voicemail so if you leave us voicemails at forty two forty two Dj Doug you can keep us from getting into business advice because so many voicemails But if there aren't enough voicemails we are going to get back into business more and we're actually going to maybe do a recap of the Monday and Wednesday interview episodes If we get around to that okay hold oh hold on if we get around to. It does that if you wait. Are we doing to episode two interviews a week and this and this are are kind of our loosely tied it so so you just committed to two episodes of inner two interviews a week rather than one thought. Originally we had the plan of doing maybe one interview on Mondays and then coming back on Fridays and doing this swim but seems like too. But we will we will do recap of interviews slash interviews on Friday and get into some business advice to you need to know I gotta we have to remember. That looks challenging. You'll have to tell me and then you'll have to kind of remind me what I talked about during the interview because some of these interviews. I've done months ago. I know it's okay. We'll just that was your problem that we had to begin with the reason why we had to separate it out into a second show because we we've felt really not quite genuine. Not only introducing the EPA or interesting the episode and then kind of saying look at the notes and going back and say oh. Yeah I remember this this person unfortunately what happens is I try my hardest to remember the the interviews and I really do engage when I have the interviews but then when the interview is over You know we could do. I think that we might have tried this before we. We introduced the episodes that the interviews that I had just done for. Hey this is what's going to be happening in the upcoming weeks. You're really going to enjoy this episode. My feeling though. Is that people like instant gratification. Going to have a hard time saying like I talked to a guy named. His name is Chick Chris Chicken Alley and the CEO of pure romance which is a direct sales business of I WANNA call them like Like relationship ship enhancement products. You could you could say that I call them vibrators and sex toys right and I don't mind them being called sex toys. I think it gives the wrong connotation to the world out there when you say sex toys you're thinking like CD adult bookstore in that kind of stuff while that may be stuff that they carry. I think what this really he does is they are relationship enhancers. I mean I don't know about you. But how many toys R. in that that bedside table that might be in your home right now strict when I just meet on your side of the table on that. I think I'M GONNA discuss. I'm not GonNa get quite that person. Well there's a there's a few in my home and I'd be happy to find out who's as they are so anyway so Chris was on the show and I did an interview with him this week. But that probably won't be airing for the next couple of weeks and and I'm okay with teasing the episode. it's so funny as I'm reading his interim thinking how many words have I used in his intro. That are kind of like Like have double meanings that are actually going to double entendre Meaning because You know because of the business anyway. Great Great Interview. This guy took the not His business his MOM's business. He took it from three million dollars a year. which is a big business on? Its own but his business does over two hundred million dollars a year they have twenty six fouls Independent agents that read or independent consultants that rep his products. Just A at. What a great interview? Great Guy invited me on his podcast. He has a podcast who you called them. I think it's called KITS H. It and he talks to entrepreneurs about how they build their business. And I'm but all of that tees. Let's say all of that that I just did now. I'm not looking at any notes. I'm using that because I'm saying those words because that interview is still fresh in my mind if I if I had to go back and and talk about an interview that they did maybe two or three weeks ago I'd have a tough time. So what what would you think would be a good idea. Yeah it's a plan. It's a loose plan it still you know. We're we're it's it's open for interpretation and I really WANNA know how Chris felt about taking over a sex toy business from his mom. That's kind of weird. Isn't it well. You know when you think about it though. It really is not a business of products. It's a business of people and we do spend a lot of time talking about that and I I was really more inclined to talk about. How does it how does it feel to be a male? A A man in a in a very female dominated business like kids because the majority of the of the customers that our customers to that business they've majority of the consultants that are in this in that business are are women and and so we talked a little bit about that and he gave some great business advice. I mean he really is a guy totally in in tune to try to help entrepreneurs get to the net that next extent whether it's somebody that is in direct sales it's just trying to make a couple thousand dollars extra.
"strickland" Discussed on The Qwipster Film Review Podcast
"You can find the link to that at my website. That's quitter dot net today. I'm going to be looking at a fairly. Small film is actually getting around around very slowly throughout various art house theaters generally speaking. You may have this near you. You may not. It actually may be appearing in a few weeks from now it is called in fabric fabric. It is a horror comedy. Well it's really hard to pigeonhole this film into a specific genre but it is quite a different movie than most things you may have seen before it's an R. rated film but does have a strong sexual content including a scene of abberant behavior and some bloody images just the run time is an hour and fifty eight minutes. Marianne jean-baptiste is I guess the closest thing to a main star. Shut my Muhammed Leo Bill. Haley squires Gwendolyn. I'm Christy Julian. Barratt Steve Orem and many others are in this film. Peter Strickland is the director he also writes the screenplay. Now this is a film that's executive executive produced by Ben Wheatley who has directed his own chair of smaller independent films over the last few years in fabric is a comedic doc. Horror film from Peter Strickland. Peter Strickland made critical splashes with prior small-scale efforts. He may be crafty shallow. Oma Judge called barbarian sound studio. He also made this fetishistic tale. That's found in the film the Duke of Burgundy all of those. I've got some good critical acclaim now. Strickland's penchant for exploring unique scenarios. Continues here with his more expansive story about this sexy readdress is actually called artery. Read in one of the advertisements for it. It's bought by a woman named Sheila played by Marianne jean-baptiste. She lives a lonely in recently divorced middle-aged London Bank clerk she goes into this department store called thinly and sober a bizarre department store. That may be selling haunted did wears during the rush of it's January sales way more to the story than that in fact address ends up in multiple hands in the course of this film so it's not explicitly explicitly stated in the story here but the setting is sometime in the early nineteen nineties. Strictly has gone on an interview. State that the actual year is nineteen ninety-three specifically that was long before cell phones or the Internet would become ubiquitous. Lonely people would end up having to meet each other usually through classified. Dad's called the lonely hearts section in London. Papers the department stores were very much a place at that time to go. See the latest goods. And it would become a sort of a hub hub meeting place a lot. Like the malls in America where people would congregate. They would spend a lot of their free time browsing around for something that would give their own lies. Some pizzazz released a promise of it. Clothing catalogs sold not only the wares but the way that the clothing was destined to make the wearer's lives better least. That's how the advertisements advertisements would run due to their purchase one similarly palatial clothing store strickland remembered from his youth. They had pneumatic tubes. That shot brought up the money that the customers would give and then they would wait for the change to return back in those tubes. He used that as the inspiration for the store. That's depicted in in this film now although you can view in fabric as a straightforward narrative with a lot of weird stylistic choices. I think that Peter Strickland here is appearing hiring to delve into something deeper in resonance he explores the power. That clothing has in how people are treated as well as the corrosive aspects of consumerism consumerism. They say that you know clothes. Make the man but this story explores the idea that the maker of the clothing also contributes a role into making that man or woman as well as the seller of that clothing and really anyone who may have worn that clothing in the past. If you buy it secondhand clothes make people happy some. Make them sad. If you're wearing something or you come across something that was once worn by a lost loved. One may make you sad. Some clothing is meant to provoke others into turning heads. Close can turn on or turn off. Take for instance someone else's undergarments. That can be a turn on or off depending on how you come across them. It could be seen as unsanitary Anna Terry or maybe particularly appealing. If you have the certain fixation clothes can make someone feel good about their body or it may not depending on how they fit. You can even feel good about yourself or not depending on what clothes you're wearing can give you a certain confidence and you may get compliments from others because of the clothing that you're wearing now if fabric could have come across as a just a cheap. E B movie horror excursion if it weren't for Strickland's commitment to his characterizations he he gets strong performance. He's here for the very talented cast of characters. Marianne jean-baptiste who came district Lynn on the recommendation of Toby Jones who starred in Burien sound studio. GEICO she plays Sheila. She gets the most screen time and she delivers an entirely sympathetic character that does dries into her story of trying to find love and acceptance in this world of men who you seem to only have love and acceptance for themselves there's also Romanian born actress Fatma Mohammed. She's a regular in Peter Strickland's films. He actually wrote the part that she portrays with her in mind. Here she gives the most high-profile performance is a comical but quite bizarre role of the manager of the department. The story named missed luck. More after Peter Strickland met up with Gwendolyn Christie. If you know that name you probably recognize her as Brienne of Tar th-th on the TV show. Game Game of thrones. It's used to appear on each before he completed its run. She expressed her love restrict. Moore's Duke of Burgundy and the having a chat strictly ended up offering her this small small supporting role as Gwen. Just coincidentally the PROVOCATEUR Brunette. Who Sees Sheila's son named Vince? He's a struggling artist in this film veteran English musician. Barry Adamson is also quite impressive in a small role as more sympathetic of Sheila's suitors. Although Peter Strickland develops his character with the sympathetic I the film does become a bit of a metaphor for the nature of Terminal Diseases. In a certain respect those people who end up coming into contact with address and appearing appearing to manifest cancerous growths that they mostly shrug off at least at first in this way the affliction of the dress is very much like getting cancer which doesn't really care care whether you're a good person or a bad person or if you deserve this lot in life there's no judgment involved in its actions it's evil will strike. Its it's victims. Independent of whether those victims themselves are good or evil just like disease itself. It doesn't question your morality or your ethics or your character. The sexuality within the film occurs between several sets of people initially feel that Sheila who has not been in a relationship in some time is just not going to be able to find it. She ends up becoming jealous of her son's sexual relationship to the point where she can't help at spy on his activities when they are presented in front of her we contrast this with another a couple that we meet later they're a much younger set of characters but they've been together for about fifteen years. They have unrelated conversations during their sex acts as if they're stuck in a mode of autopilot in their lives they've been together so long that even intimate actions for most people are now perfunctory and impersonal. All meanwhile the tenders of the department stores seem to have something more sinister. Perhaps even more supernatural going on. During their closing hours they perform strange sexual sexual blood rituals that appear to be almost vampiric by their nature sex and death to them are so closely aligned the appear to compensate one and the same. There's symbolized by this dress that allures with its notions of sexuality but its nature is one that is more deadly people come to find motifs also explore manipulation here especially by the department store. Coven if you want to call them that we see recurring visions of hands with fingers spread apart. Maybe that's symbolizing the manipulation relation as if these are the hands of puppeteers utilizing their skills and some sort of dark magic to cause things to move on their own including the infamous dress which seems to have a life of its own when people are not really as observant mannequins. Also play into this. They are designed to display. Fashions like the dress but they are also manipulated aided by those who run the commercial establishments to entice those looking for something more in their lives they feel they are missing in the end up playing up to that. Mannequins are also Erie an an unnerving to observe as well. The fabric itself is like a net. It's woven so finely that they're actually bay not be a means of easy escape if you end up getting trapped underneath a fabric garment.

What's the Air Force Academy and so from their seventeen year old me I got my car went and found a first term senator and said Hey sir I want to go to the Air Force Academy? We sponsor me up there and I had a saying hanging you know my wall my whole life and it was cut out of a magazine it was laminated. I looked at it every morning every night and it simply said like begins at Mach two and I always had it but I didn't you know where it came from. So as I started speaking writing a book I researched it and came from a magazine Article Net back in nineteen eighty six George Plumpton wrote in popular mechanics magazine and he had the opportunity to fly in an F. Eighteen and he did about a four page spread about how it was demanding on the pilot how what it was really like to be a fighter pilot but most most importantly at the end of the article he compared the F. Eighteen to a corvette and to a young child in Alabama. The corvette was something I really loved and I said that is compared to a corvette. That's what I WANNA do with my life. That's funny. It's funny that came from an Plumpton article man. That guy got to do everything I wonder how it compared to quarterbacking the lions yeah it's amazing to does. He understand how many people he inspired what he wrote about and it was it was a true non fighter pilot article about what it was like to be a fighter pilot and the demands that are on our body and what we go through in in it just made me go. I want that so from there you did you you did attend the the Air Force Academy I did. I went to the Air Force Academy about three weeks after graduation with fifteen hundred closest friends for four years of what I like to call all basic training the whole four years and wh what kind of experience was free kind of coming out of a small town in Colorado Springs was it. Was It kinda familiar to you you or was it a kind of a brief from drinking from a fire hose. It was drinking from a fire hose the whole time and I will tell you it is a lot of competition titian. Get in the Air Force Academy as you can imagine and when you take fifteen hundred young people that are coming as the top of their class and lock them in in one building on one campus. Guess what happens when fifteen hundred number ones get together. Fourteen hundred ninety nine of them aren't number one anymore so it was demanding both physically and mentally but there was also the challenge of being in college and such a High Level College at such a level of competition and it was a great I mean I say the freshman year there from he is one of the hardest years that I ever went through my childhood because there were so much adaptation to the new way of life and and getting through the Air Force Academy and the competition to be a pilot pilot coming out of there it was just it was an amazing experience that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world but even now after so many years I will admit that I love the Academy Kademi but I hated every day I was there if you know what I mean yeah that that makes a lot of sense the diesel have I know I still have dreams of being in a final exam Zama last sat for you know twenty years ago. Is that the same thing for you so that dream for me. If you remember a final final week we put all our finals in one week and we ate on base because it's a military and so we had a midnight meal that we lovingly called Scooby snacks. If you remember Scooby Doo Scooby always had scooby snacks so at midnight we would go out to get our scooby snacks and and about every night you would hear somebody goes screaming across the patio out there because they had hit that breaking point and somebody he's not getting his scooby snack. Ah Yeah so what was your progression of aircraft flew through training. How did that go so graduation? From the Air Force Academy I I went to pilot training and back then we went to the thirty seven so the tweet now they fly the t six so you do that for about six months I went to Euro NATO joint jet Pilot Training Senate Sheppard Air Force Base which is where we trained fighter pilots so after six months of t thirty seven training you get rank ordered and then you go into the thirty eight where you learned to fly a high speed jet you go supersonic for the first time learn to fly formation those type things and then coming out of the t thirty eight you get rank ordered and we have assignment midnight so you literally walk into a room with all of your instructors and your peers know spouses no friends though anybody they locked the door they walk up on stage and at the time they took a cheat off of a board that had you rank order from first to last and it was right there and start with number one you get up and walk to the board and they have magnets every airplane plane that was available to be picked and you walked up and pick the airplane you wanted. Put it by your name and you can imagine as you went down. The list got smaller and smaller so for me. I I got my first choice. The F fifteen went out of their to introduction to fighter fundamentals which is where we take the t thirty eight put a bomb on a gun side on it and we fight against the other to start getting those basic fighter type skills in and then I went off to the fifteen at Tyndall to the schoolhouse to get qualified in the fifteen then once once you get to your combat unit which was me was the thirty third fighter wing at Eglin Air Force Base. It takes about three months to finish and get certified before you're a combat ready pilot ready to deploy we overseas why so the F fifteen I mean that's a great airplane undefeated champion as we always say What was your first impression? When you get your dream you signed the fifteen? He got on the ramp at some point and you finally see the airplane. You'RE GONNA fly for the first time. What's that feeling like so if we could back it up a little bit because this happened at the Air Force Academy one of the benefits go in the Air Force Academy is we have an assignment one summer for three weeks to go out and shadow a unit and see the real air force? We call it is like for me happened to go to Tyndall Air Force Base so as a senior at the Air Force Academy I was able to get in an F. Fifteen and go fly for the first time before I graduated before I had the assignment before I'd been through pilot training and you can imagine the childhood sparkling is when I walk out and see that beast I it's the size of a tennis court for those that don't know it's about thirteen feet off the ground when you climb up and I'm just sitting there and admiration of this thing and we take off and when we airborne a home i Gosh I hate it. It is brutal it hurts and I landed exhausted. After a forty minute flight a pulling nine Jeez I mean and they didn't take it easy on me. They full up at a normal mission with me and I remember we went back into into the debrief room which has a lot of computers so it's kind of cool and about two minutes. It's in the debrief. I was not enough out of pure exhaustion. I was so tired and my instructor goes a just an incentive right for you. You can go and go if you want to and I left there going. Oh my Gosh Josh is my life's dream and it hurt. My whole body hurts. It's bigger than any workout I ever had and there was that moment of do I really want to do this and that's when I said Yep. This is what I WANNA do so that was my first flight before I went to pilot training.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vocal bomb. Here slots are known for their incredibly slow moving nature's. But it turns out that such sluggishness also carries over into their bathroom habits so much. So that they only defecate every five to seven days on average and actually lose up to one third of their body weight in a single movement. The stool is pushed out in one fell swoop so impressive that horrified and door. Transfixed bystanders can watch the animals, abdomen shrink. We spoke by Email with Sarah Kennedy, co founder of the sloth Conservation Foundation based in the United Kingdom. She said if you've ever seen a sloth PU you could only ever describe it as pure bliss. They tipped their heads back and smile. But the week long delay between bowel movements is not. Even the strangest thing about sloth pooping habits, you see slots are boreal creatures, which means they live work and play high up in the trees their chosen habitats. Are the rain cloud forests of central and South America? Most other are boreal animals like monkeys poop from the trees, but not sloughs. Instead, they make a slow descent from the canopy to do their business at the base of the trees and this despite the fact that it's quite perilous. Kennedy said this behavior puts them at threat to a lot of predators like jungle cats and wastes a lot of their precious energy, which they don't have much of it turns out that more than half of all sloth deaths occurred during potty time when these creatures are so vulnerable to predators. The process comes at a serious price zoologist and sloth Conservation Foundation founder Becky cliff wrote in a blog post, a slots entire lifestyle is based around avoiding detection and using as little energy as possible. It takes us Lafon entire month to digest just one leaf meaning they don't have much wiggle room. When it comes to expending energy. The laborious process of going up and down the tree is compounded by the actual pooping process. Slots do a little bench at the base of the tree to create a whole for the feces, and then shake their hindquarters once more to cover it up this process requires you guessed it, plenty of precious energy. A lot of theories have been put forth about wise lofts feel the need to expend so much effort and expose themselves to so much danger just to toilet one theory is that sloth moths which live in sloth hair actually, lay their eggs in the feces during the long poop process, then once they hatch and mature in their carefully prepared environment. They fly up to take residents in the host sloths for many experts though are skeptical of this explanation because the Slavs don't particularly benefit from the behavior and nature isn't generally known for its selfless, generosity, more likely. But as yet unproven is that these strange behavior comes back to reproduction as it so off. Does when living things are involved. Kennedy explained the main reason is probably so that other sloths can find them a particularly males looking for females. Usually this loss come down every five to seven days, but when females are in heat, it's every day. So it's likely to be mostly to do with reproduction. Indeed, it appears at sloth poop says a lot more about the animal than merely what they've been gnashing on cliff wrote fairmont's present in the urine feces can provide a lot of important information about the individual animal, if the sloth just let everything go from the canopy these messages would be easily lost we have heaps of data showing some really interesting patterns between a female's estrus cycle and the patterns of defecation. We'll be waiting patiently for the answer to this mystery because if observing sloughs teaches anything it's patients.

Skim Versus Whole Milk: Which Spoils Faster?

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff, I'm Lauren Vogel bomb, and we've all had moments of uncertainty, and let's face it paranoia about the state of the food sitting in our refrigerators, you might be able to eyeball some of this suspicious items check for expiration dates on others and with some milk. Maybe you'll probably take a quick with and hope for the best. But if you've ever looked a shelf-life chart to figure out how long your milk might last. You might have noticed that skim milk is said to last a day or two longer than whole milk. But is that really true? And if so why before we really get started. I should state that there is by no means universal agreement on this issue. Some dairy scientists say skim milk lasts longer because certain fat loving microbes can develop as quickly in nonfat milk. Other say that whole milk lasts longer because free fatty acids might actually be natural preservatives. Still others say that maybe there isn't a difference in spoilage at. All it's just that. We noticed flavor changes more in one or the other. There's only been one major controlled study on these spoilage rates of whole and skim milk. And it was somewhat inconclusive skim milk was found to spoil slightly faster. But the researchers weren't exactly sure why bacteria that are psychotropic that is cold resistant are what causes spoilage in the fridge. And in the study, they multiplied at the same rate in both types of milk when the milk spoiled both whole and skim contained similar strains of bacteria. There was a pronounced difference in how whole and skim milk reacted when they were injected with the same spoilage microorganisms, but they affected the milk's taste and smell more than they did the actual spoilage rate whole milk for the record tended to turn sour and skim milk was on the bitter side. So for the purposes of your average milk consumer. There's really no hard and fast rule about which kind will spoil faster if whole. Ilk does last longer than skim the difference is so slight that any given gallon of skim milk could outlast any given gallon of whole milk. The spoilage rate depends on so many variables manufacturer production methods milk formulation plant sanitation storage, temperatures, ph level moisture content just to name a few a small change in just one of them could give any particular container of milk a slightly longer shelf life than another a couple of other factors make things even more ambiguous for one. It's pretty much impossible to pinpoint the exact moment of spoilage, depending on your sense of smell and taste and your tolerance for changes in milk flavor. You might turn up your nose at a gallon of milk that someone else might readily swig, and there's no federal regulation of milk expiration dates in the United States only twenty states, legally standardized, the date that's printed on the bottle, and those standards vary widely one state might mandate a sell by date of a certain number of days after pasteurization, whereas milk jugs in another state would be printed. With a used by date, the upshot don't base your milk purchases on which type might last longer. If you're concerned about shelf life, you'd be better off following a few simple steps to slow down milk spoilage. Whether you're a whole or skimmed drinker, I make sure your refrigerator is the correct temperature. It should be set at forty degrees Fahrenheit. That's four point four degrees celsius store, your milk on an interior shelf instead of on the door, which fluctuates more in temperature and make sure you put your milk back in the fridge as soon as possible after using it leaving it out on the counter for even a few minutes exposes it to light and heat giving 'Bacterial a chance to spring into action. Today's episode was written by Alison Cooper and produced by Tyler clang. Bonus fact for the episode, the origin of milk's, expiration date labels, and of expiration date labels general in the United States rests with a campaign started by Al Capone to learn more about that checkout.

And today's episode is a classic from our erstwhile host Christian Seder. This one was a script in our old YouTube days, and we found that it was one of our most controversial why does gasoline smell so good for those of you thinking what gasoline smells gross, just believe us for some folks it smells delicious. Either. Gang. I'm Christian Sager and had you ever been to the gas station before filling up your jalopy when suddenly your nostril hairs twins with an aromatic burning sensation it's like the wise sages of Leonard Skinner once saying ooh that smell. Can't you smell that smell? I'm talking about gasoline people. Why does it smell so good? While the first answer is pretty simple actually gasoline or petrol as our friends across the pond like to call. It contains a chemical hydrocarbon called benzine used to boost its octane rating and benzene naturally has a sweet scent to it that our noses are especially sensitive to in fact, it evaporates so quickly that you'd smell benzine instantly. If you just put some in a dish in the same room, you're in it is so pungent we can get a whiff of it. If there's only one to five parts per million in the air, we breathe and benzenes not just in gasoline. We use it in plastics pesticides and detergents. It's also in a lot of mass. Produced toys. So it's possible. You're associating the smell of gasoline with that new toys smell from your childhood, but don't let it's odor. Get. It's enchanting hooks in you too far because Skinner also had it, right? When they sang that smell, the smell of death surrounds you. That's right. The smell of benzene can be fork. But it's also toxic. If you inhale large amounts of it it actually attacks your nervous system. Luckily, it's so pungent that we have plenty of warning before hazardous exposure. That's why it can start to make you nauseous or give you a headache after awhile and the consequences of sniffing too, much benzine and gasoline are not pretty inhalant abuse leads to loss of consciousness, seizures liver injury and distress within your heart and lungs keep going after that and you're looking at neurological impairment and straight up brain damage, the EPA OSHA and who also categorized benzene as a carcinogen the cancers. It's associated with the most are leukemia and. Mm foam and get this. There's possibly another less dangerous reason why we like the smell of gasoline so much. A study published in two thousand nine issue of addiction research in theory indicates that gasoline smells better to us when we're hungry. It found that people rate the smell of gasoline as being more pleasant and intense the longer it had been since they'd last eaten more research is obviously required. But there seems to be a link between our degree of hunger and our odor perception of gasoline. Maybe that's why gas stations make such a killing on selling junk food.

Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here during the bronze age the Incas built the largest pre-columbian empire in the Americas extending along the west coast of South America from Bolivia to Chile they not only thrived in the harsh climate and dry steep slopes of the high Andes. They also served up masterclass and technical road-building that would have made the Romans quake in their sandals. Thank created a twenty five thousand mile highway system that's about forty thousand kilometers complete with rope bridges across treacherous mountain chasms. They also engineered millions of acres of high altitude terraced farmland and constructed an earthquake proof citadel on top of a craggy mountain peak one point five miles that's two point four kilometers above sea level, the even figured out how to freeze dried potatoes, but unlike the neighboring Maya and as techs and the ancient Mesopotamia's Chinese Egyptians, the Incan never developed a system of writing what they did have were keep Lou or not at length of cord made from Lana oral Pakowal or cotton. They hung in rows like. A curtain from a thicker central rope, which was sometimes coiled up to resemble the string mop these bundles were often color coded, although most surviving keep who are now a uniform camel color and could contain just a few strings or hundreds when the Spanish arrived and wiped out the entire in Kosovo ization, they found keep who everywhere but destroyed many of them in the nineteen s a science historian named Leland lock studying the keep who at the American Museum of natural history in New York City discovered the knots and the key PU represented numbers and the bundles of textiles were most likely recordkeeping devices similar to Advocacy's probably used to hold census data or to keep track of the contents of storehouses or how many lamas were paid tribute. He realized that the height of a not and its position on its cord civilized units tens hundreds thousands, and so on and the position of a string off the main rope could denote things like specific people or villages, but even after lock cracked the code. He noticed that some of the key. He studied seemed. To be anomalies. He figured these were used for ceremonial purposes. There are however anecdotal clues that entire narratives could be passed along through keep Oooo a one seventeenth century Spanish conquistador reported meeting an in-command on the road. Who carried keep Oooo that he said told of all the deeds of the Spanish in Peru. Good and bad. Keep who couriers reportedly ran all over the Incan empire.

If not impossible so research has made slow progress in the past century since the early nineteen nineties Harvard anthropologist named Gary Burton has been working to decipher what if anything the key booze that don't fit the normal mold of accounting devices might mean collecting database of over nine hundred keep who in the process has discovered that beyond the position and height of the nods. There are other factors to take into consideration. When reading Kiu the color of the string. The direction.

Some new information about them, for instance, that the different materials used in the strings is significant and their understanding is that the devices were used to tell stories of warfare Highland. Also reports evidence of network symbols in the strings, it could be for all their ingenuity the Incas never learned to use symbolic written language, but it looks like they may have been just a little more creative with their storytelling than any other major civilization to date.

Researchers at the center for taste and feeding behavior in France asked thirty one French wine drinkers to taste for different wines. I on their own then with each of four different cheeses to see if and how the taste of the wine was changed by the cheese. The method used to evaluate the taste is called multi intake temporal dominance of sensations, which simply means that the drinkers were asked which taste sensations were dominant in length and intensity or in layman's terms, which ones did you enjoy? And why the winds were the same through all five tastings, a sweet white a dry white a full bodied red and a forty red in the first session, the tasters took three sips of each wine with no cheese. In the following sessions. They again took three sips, but in each session tasted a different cheese between sips all four cheeses ranging from creamy, two semi soft and stinky to semi hard too, hard or tasted with each wine. The study found that all of the wines tasted better after eating cheese less stringent unless sour and in the case of the fruity red, for example, that Ferdie flavor lasted longer the lead researcher Meribel Marini told the telegraph. We learned the duration of the perception of stringency of a certain line could be reduced after having cheese and the four evaluated cheeses had the same effect in short when having a plate of assorted cheeses, the wind will probably taste better. No matter which one they choose which is a relief to those of us who find creating pairings a clunky prospect at best the effect of the cheeses on the taste of the winds probably happened because the fat in cheese coats, your mouth, and reduces the dryness it might feel due to tenants from the wine a bit of tannin in wines and other. Things like tea or meant is a fun sensation. But too much can be puckering and unpleasant beyond making wine and cheese parties, a potentially less expensive endeavor. The researchers have a practical application for this study. To better understand how the taste of food can change when paired with other foods leading to new and possibly better meals as different foods are served together.

Are E-Cigarette Liquids Safe?

Welcome to bring stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain, Steph Lauryn Boko bomb here, even if you're not tobacco user, you're probably familiar with e cigarettes from their aggressive marketing campaigns and popularity with former smokers there, the electronic battery powered devices that heat a fluid aka liquid or vape juice to create an aerosol that's inhaled in place of the smoke that conventional cigarettes produced by burning tobacco leaves these fluids can contain any number of compounds to create the puffs of aerosol their flavors and their effects, including nicotine, the active ingredient in tobacco east. Cigarettes are rising in popularity with ten point eight million adult users in the US as of two thousand eighteen part of the attraction may be that they're perceived as being less hazards to the health then conventional smoking since users don't receive the cancer causing tar found in conventional cigarettes and two that the allure of the sweet tasting flavorings available. For addition to the liquid and people such as US food and Drug administration Commissioner, Dr Scott Gottlieb, where he it may be all too. Appealing to youthful users. But that pleasant taste may have a downside. Researchers say in a study published in October of two thousand eighteen in the journal nicotine and tobacco research. Scientists from Duke and Yale universities found that chemical flavorings for vanilla cherry citrus. Cinnamon interacted with solvents such as propylene glycol and glacier, all in the illiquid forming new compounds called avatars, which can trigger irritation and inflammation when inhaled according to the Duke medicine press release the interaction occurs. Even before the liquid is heated. We spoke with Hannah Arendt repel a post doctoral associate at the yield tobacco center of regulatory science. And a co author of the study he said, we simply don't know what long-term effects these compounds and many other compounds in east cigarette liquid have on the Airways, many of the additives to liquids have G R A S status, which means generally regarded as safe, but that's based on ingestion and on d'ormal or skin exposure. There isn't much knowledge about what these compounds. Might do in the Airways and lungs, and that's true for all vapors young and old earth. Rappel added that scientists already know that further reactions take place during the heating step of vaping. All of this means that the initial list of ingredients for illiquid, quote is likely different from the final illiquid composition, which in turn is different. From what the user is exposed to in the generated aerosol, how that might affect vapors bodies isn't yet clear, but the researchers say that the irritant compounds will persist in the body for some time after a user vapes. Overtime that mild irritation could trigger the immune system and create an inflammatory response in your body. Which isn't a good thing for anyone. But especially for users with conditions like asthma and repel notes that the researchers have other concerns as well. He said if this reaction can take place that creates a more irritating compound or possibly more toxic. What other reactions can take place that might cause increased risk for users. We simply don't know I would add that term effects of aping on the air. As and the whole body are generally unknown, given how young these devices are independent of the final composition of illiquid. Abut the fact that these more irritating compounds form is certainly not reassuring in that regard. We also spoke by Email with Robert strongin, a professor of organic chemistry at Portland state university. Who was not connected with the Duke Yale study, he said that just as users aren't aware of these new chemicals being created an illiquid scientists similarly don't know much about the effect of those chemicals on the body quote. We know very little or nothing about the flavoring additives or even much about the solvents as far as their inhalation. Toxicity especially as chronically used in e cigarettes, a chemical safer ingestion are not necessarily safe for inhalation inhaled, organic solvents and flavorings bypass processing by these stomach and liver. Lung tissue is different. Just because we can eat flavor molecules doesn't mean at all that it's okay to inhale them. A repel says that more research is needed. On the chemical changes in illiquid 's and what health effects they may have a which will be a challenge CENA's how there are an estimated seven thousand flavors or more on the market right now. And that market is growing. Today's episode was written by Patrick j tiger and produced by Tyler claim for more on this and lots of other health, topics. Visit our home planet has two forks dot com.

The History of Cyber Monday
"Welcome to tech stuff. I'm your host Jonathan Strickland, an executive producer, and that love all things tech today thought change things up a bit and talk about the history and evolution of cyber Monday. So where did this come from? And are the deals on cyber Monday. Really great. And I guess the answer to that. Second question is essentially it depends. But first, let's talk about some history. So before there was cyber Monday. There was black Friday both in the sense that black Friday is a thing is older than cyber Monday. And also cyber Monday is the Monday that follows black Friday. So technically, it's true in two different senses. All right. So what does black Friday one of the United States? Black Friday is the Friday following thanksgiving. Thanksgiving in the United States falls on the fourth Thursday of November. At least it has ever since. Eighteen thirty nine when Franklin Delano Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week from the final Thursday of November. Now since November two thousand eighteen started on a Thursday November. I was Thursday that means that two thousand eighteen will see thanksgiving fall as early as it can which means November twenty second the latest. It can fall in the month is November twenty eighth. Anyway, black Friday is the day after thanksgiving in the United States. Now, there is an apocryphal story that says the origins of black Friday are deeply racist and tied to the United States history with slavery. According to that story slave traders would sell slaves at a discount on the day after thanksgiving to help plantation owners who are going to want to purchase more slaves to do work leading up to the winter. That's a horrible horrible thing. But the story isn't true at all. And honestly, I find it hard to believe that slave traders would respond to an increase in demand by lowering their prices, they already seen like terrible terrible human beings. I don't think of them as being particularly altruistic. However, we can put that whole explanation aside. Anyway, if anyone tells you black Friday is based in slavery that is not true. The term black Friday in relation to the day after thanksgiving did not appear in print until the nineteen fifties. As far as we can determine there was however an earlier version of black Friday, though, that was not the day after thanksgiving that black Friday wasn't associated with a holiday at all. But rather with a stock market crash that happened on Friday September twenty fourth eighteen sixty nine the cause of that crash was that there were two speculators named Jay Gould and James Fisk and together they were able to drive up. The gold prices way way up while they were trying to corner the market on gold on the New York gold exchange. They had even planted a story to convince US president Ulysses s grant to stop gold sales. They had this report that it was going to hurt farmers out west. Meanwhile, they bought up as much gold as they could. And that raised gold prices as a result. So they thought they were going to be rich. They're going to buy up the golden than they could sell it off at these elevated prices, however, president grant found out about it any ordered the release of millions of dollars of gold to be made available on the market and that caused prices to crash suddenly there was way more supply and this crash ended up affecting the stock market as well. However, this was a moment of acute pain. It was a sharp debt in the stock market, thus the name black Friday, but in the long term. Meant that the nation was actually able to avoid a more persistent depression. So it ended up turning out better than it. Otherwise would have the earliest known reference to the day after thanksgiving being black Friday dates to nineteen fifty one from periodical titled factory management and maintenance that it was a real page Turner..
