"Two modes of creating innovations one mode is what i'm calling solution. I and an example of solution. I is the post it note. So the posted not adhesive for the post. It note was invented. Eleven years before it was used in post it notes and it had several failures leading up to that point now posted notes of course came. Come out of the company. Three m three am currently in this. Modern incarnation built around the this idea of crate inventions. Like the the tacky adhesive that houston post it notes and then figure out how to make them in innovations how to make a product that makes you those. Sometimes that can happen quickly and sometimes have happened takes a long time as in the case of post it notes. You know one thing to note. is that three. I'm did not originally have this business model of creating inventions and then figuring out how to make them into innovations. They started as their name suggests our original name as minnesota mining and manufacturing. They started as a random mining company in october. Random is a type of mineral that is actually used for making sandpaper. They started as a mining company then they moved into sandpaper and they still makes a lot of sandpaper and that's made with carbon them. Of course this company which was founded in the early nineteen hundreds and around nineteen seven which is now famous for its giant patent librarian things like that.

"Lousy at predicting the future. We underestimate the amount of time. A project will require if it's a project that has a budget. We underestimate the expenses. Well the most famous example of this failing probably the sydney opera house which was commissioned in nineteen fifty seven with an expected completion date of nineteen sixty three and a budget of seven million australian dollars. The building wasn't finished until nineteen seventy three and only after the most ambitious versions of the plan had been scaled back for a final cost of one hundred two million dollars. The planning fallacy is the tendency to seize upon the most optimistic timetable for completing a project and ignore inconvenient information. That might make you revise that prediction.

Some pet chefs will also cater parties to your furry friends, so they don't feel left out at your next but mitzvah or family 100%.

I do think there is a dog zoom, but I don't think it was created called Dog Zoom. It's just dogs that use human zoom. I mean, you know, I'll give you I'll give you about 14 points for that answer. It is fake. As in the true there is no such thing as actually dug. Zoom you saw right through us on that one. But could you put your dog on zoom And could they enjoy themselves?

The Gendered Brain - Gina Rippon and myth shattering neuroscience
"It's Natasha Mitchell here. With science friction with a question. Are you a two headed guerrilla? Now I ask this question. Because in eighteen seventy nine the founder of social psychology so an important guy right. The scientists gust of Lebron right these influential words in the most intelligent rices. There are a large number of women whose brains are closer in size to those of guerrillas them to the most developed mile. Brian's this inferiority is so obvious that no one can contest it for a moment. Only degree is worth discussion. Without a doubt there exists sump distinguish women very superior to the average man but they are as exceptional as the birth of any monstrosity as for example of a guerrilla with two heads. Consequently we may neglect them entirely. Well that was iding seventy nine but so it is today. Also it seems because cognitive neuroscientist Professor Jane Rippin from Aston University in Birmingham digs into the history of scientists efforts to pin sex differences on the brain in her light is book the Gender Brine the New Science that shatters the myth of the Female Brian. And just before Australia. Waiting to lockdown and boards closed. She join me on stage at the Sydney Opera House for this is all about women festival. Thank you very much everybody. My Life's work has really been looking at what makes brains different any brains different and in fact book started much more about the exploration of how brains to be different because I am an autism researcher. And there's a great thing in the autism community that if you've met one person with autism you've met one person with autism so we really thought we need to understand the variability. Everybody's brain is is different from everybody else's brain and in fact. I WANT TO CALL THE BOOK. Fifty shades of gray matter but publishers thought perhaps air. I needed to kind of tone down the brains of areas I was looking at a bit more Gravitas so the book is called the gendered brain. And it's really about how brains get to be different particularly with respect to whether they're male brains or they're female brains and actually it turns out once I got into the research and really investigating this given. Everybody knows that men's brains different from women's brains and that's why men behave different. Trim women and men are from Mars women from Venus? All of those wonderful sort of tropes that we've all come across so I went back and I had a look at the research. I thought let's really get into where these differences are can get a handle on how brains and different and I saw thinking I think time looking in the wrong place because I really can't find that much evidence and so eventually when I really gone through the research up brains and behavior. I came to the apparently startling conclusion that the differences between the sexes. A much smaller than we ever thought even with respect to brains so the question. Have you got a male brain or have you female brain? My answer was actually. I think a we're looking in the wrong place and be with probably asking the wrong question so I would say actually having come to that conclusion and our will warn you this in case you feel the need to leave. It wasn't universally accepted. I came across this really profound belief that we really have to acknowledge that scientists like me just you know get a life get out into the real world. You really don't know what's going on there. He comes conclusions like that and the kind of discussions. I was getting from the press when I was saying enthusiastically explaining the similarity between brains for example the Telegraph Telegraph in the UK. Quieter conservative newspaper. When Christina? Doni said this theory smacks of feminism with an equality fetish so. I love the idea that if you're interested equality some kind of perverse practice say this is the kind of response. I got to mind futuristic. My finding but this is my favorite full of carp which. I'm assuming this mistake anyway. So if anybody feels the need. This is dangerous information. They're about to hear time to go. But let's just move on this. Of course it is a very old question. Are Male brains different from female brains? But we need to remember that. This didn't used to be a question more than one hundred years ago when this research started when I started to realize that brains were in some some way the source of all the kind of human behavior we were interested in and even human places in society you found that the researchers at the time who strangely enough for male a distinctive view about what they were looking at they looked at the society. They looked to the status quo and they said women have an inferior place in society which they were actually right because they didn't have access to educational financial independence or political of power. So they said what we is. Brain. Scientists need to explain is the fact that women's brains are inferior so this was actually the beginning of what I call the hunt. The Difference Crusade where scientists were saying men's brains different women's brains. Let's why another coach from the two headed gorilla man. Lebron women represent the most inferior forms of human evolution and are closer to children and savages than to an adult civilized man. So if you kind of harbor ideas. This was allies objective scientific campaign to measure differences between two different groups of people lead to bear in mind. Some thoughts bit later on the idea. This complementarity trump being a bit rude saying that women are inferior. What we should say is that they have these wonderful skills. Which will of course complement those of men who are going to be ruling the world so we must start with the realization. That's as much as women want to be good scientists or engineers. They want first and foremost to be womanly companions of men and to be good

Concerted push in China, and I've done partnerships with big name sports teams abroad to like the Yomiuri Giants in Japan and soccer rivals, Manchester United and Manchester City England.

And without pausing. She said, we'll have Mark Thompson here until mid August. And that thought, wow. Could be quite some vacation. Hey. Your dad always said he wanted you to travel. That's right. All right. Here is more travel to every track that you can get to between now and mid August. That's exactly right. All right, Steve, Gregory with Carol Burnett. The thing that we talked about was the people were laughing into the point of tears, and you never uttered, the F word. No. No. We why why why you never went blue. You never had to go blue to get people to laugh. Well, you know what? And God bless him. He felt the same way that, you know, and Carl Reiner today. You know, if you have to stoop, you know, and be blue, then you're not really as clever, as you think you are, because it's a cheap easy way to get a laugh, if you don't mind, Carol, can you take a couple of seconds and sort of think back, and I'd like you to tell us something about him, you and Tim, Tim and Harvey all three of you something you've never said publicly before I don't take anything that I haven't said publicly before or written about when it comes to Tim Conway, there was, there would be no reason to keep a secret. I mean just just not much secret been like a funny moment or something that, that you might recall that you've never talked that you've done so many of us. And I know you've talked about Tim and Harvey and. I remember one time we were in stralia doing show, we were opening the Sydney Opera House. And, you know, when you're on location, a lot of the people that we brought with us, they were kind of having secret romances and my husband, and I, we felt like the house, mother and house father. But we'll okay, whatever anybody go. All right. So everybody's hooking up. Okay, that's fine. We've been paying attention. So we laid a date with Tim to go to dinner and he was on the second floor hotel. And so he's come on down. Pick me up, you know, at seven o'clock or whatever. So my husband Joe and I the elevator we went down and went to his room and we knocked on the door. He's come in, and so we came in and he was was the living room and then the bed bedroom was in the back. I'm back here. Into the bedroom, and Tim is in bed bare-chested looking like you smoking cigarettes. With his arm around a stuffed sheep. He had bought this huge cheap that was in the gift shop. And it was it was. You know, the regular size like in person. What he had hooked up with. I had never heard that story before never ever heard that story. This is so great, and he and he put the cigarette out and looked at the sheep. Don't wait up, Barbara. He'll be back. Thought we were going to die. Need those to save? We didn't have lamb chops before. Let you go. Tim is listening tonight for the first time this interview, would you like to give him a message? Junior. I just sent you. Love wrapping my arms around you from afar and just be grateful that you had such a great, dad. Thank you, Carol. Thank you for making the magic and being the matriarch of this comedy. Thank you for making it possible for us to laugh for all these years. Thank you for being a great person. Thank you. I was happy to talk about him. Take care Caroline. Good luck tonight. Thank you. All right. Wow. What a great interview Steve Gregory. That is really cool of them to do that. At the end for him to ask her about me, which is really a, a top shelf, but that's what that family is all about. When Joe Hamilton who was carbonates husband for a long, long time had planned a wedding for his daughter, and they rent it out the park plaza the ballroom at the park. Plaza hotel must have been a hundred and twenty five thousand dollars back in the late seventies, which probably is a quivalent to maybe a half million dollars now for a wedding and all the guests were planned. And, you know, the, the rooms are rented the flowers, were arranged or about to be arranged addresses the, everything the meals, the band. Everything was was rented out. And there was a guy from the Middle East who call Joe Hamilton and said the place that he was gonna have his daughter's wedding had burned down. And he wants the ball. Room. The Joe Hamilton had rented at the park plaza hotel, and he's willing to give him the price the wedding which one hundred twenty five thousand dollars, plus five hundred thousand dollars cash. If he'd move is wedding to another day. And Joe Hamilton. Told him to stick it. That he's not gonna do that his daughter. That is the kind of guy Joe Hamilton was one of those one of the greatest guys have ever met my life. A real guy everything about him. Smoking drinking golfing swearing. Everything was all male. When when and truly one of the funniest guys you'd ever meet intimidating, but not in a bad way. Just really one of the greatest guys. Remember my life listening to that interview that Steve did with Carol Burnett kind of led to my question. Maybe can think about during the break. Have you heard of the last few days stories about your dad that you had never heard before because you've you've told a lot? I'm guessing just over the years like this one from Carol Burnett. Yeah. There was a story out of Australia about a sheep in bed with my dad. I never heard, I'll tell that back live on campus. Bill, that would have banned the sale of makeup that has any of at least fifteen toxic chemicals, failed to Pat at bluecross blueshield, our companies take what we learned from covering one in three Americans.

"sydney opera house" Discussed on John Anderson: Conversations
"Off. But you just mentioned courage. I want to get to some of the terrific questions. People who put up before I do. That courage is something you've both displayed in spiteful, and it's incredibly important. We live in a culture. Now, where I think there's a lot of fear when I was lost was you were Chatswood, and there's a thousand people in term a lot of young men. Looked around thought these terrific young Australians. They're pretty concerned about whether they masculinity might be toxic. And they pretty fearful about speaking out because we had once used to burn people the state good way. And then we went for the guillotine. And then we went for us. Now, we kill people in social media, and we do people get kneecapped everyday. And Woosh, I think we are you dick both of you actually because you've dad break the ceiling, and I've actually asked Jordan about this. And know why this is the beauty of modern even cooled off a bit. Who'd you will come precise? And you said did you do did you expect when you started on this journey to for end up like this? And you asked him what it's like to break through that. How do you feel about it when you're attacked, and you a very open, very honest. And you said it's very tough winter journalists does your over. But you might like to repeat that question to Jordan. Yeah. Quickly on the bravery thing. My my partner hates when I say this, but I don't consider myself brave. I am doing what I think is. Right. That is it that really is it I wake up every morning, and I feel that I have a I have something to do that's relevant and important and being on this tour with Jordan has been life altering not only for I lie for all the people that show there. But I don't I don't view it as bravery. I couldn't not do it. I guess is the best way to say it. I couldn't go to just go to a point. I think you'll probably being very tough on yourself. I think the reality is that carriage is not much not knowing fear. It's overcoming it, isn't it? And they must have time. When you've wanted to sort of sites. I don't want to be onto this attack. Well, I guess I saw enough when I when I started waking up to some of what was going on on the left, and I had seen the tactics over and over and how they destroyed. Good people, I suppose that as that went on and as I woke up and got out of it. I just became known to that. And I just wouldn't I just wouldn't live like that. I would think but the question that I asked you in Norway in effect was you didn't set out for this. When when c sixteen came around, you were doing all sorts of other things you had to practice you teaching all of these other things and yet you've survived these. It's not even the attacks survived a road that you didn't plan on being on. And the bravery that you've shown along the way is why people keep coming back. They keep their rooting for us more. As you often say, it's like these hip pieces come out and then in a weird way. And now, I see it with me they've moved on from you, by the way, they're working on me now. But yeah, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I'm happy. I'm happy to help. But in a weird way. It wasn't that you reveled in it. But you made a point of saying look every time they do it. I'm still here. And I think really took me awhile to understand that. Because I always want, you know, I wanted to defend my friends, but I also wanted to defend myself. And now, it's like all right. Keep coming. I'm still here. We must be doing something, right? Because I don't spend all my day attacking other people, gladly attack ideas. But I don't attack people. I mean, I don't think we've done anything up here where we attacked a singular person. Right. And that's a that's a huge difference. So the question really was you invert Mark way. I'm not a big fan of cortex. Okay. Fine. Fair enough. Yeah. Exactly. So every now and again though, but I think I talked about her ideas talk about that. In the public sphere. I talked about her and her credit score. But not her as a as a person, but then she is in the public sphere. And it's also impossible to never talk about people. So it's you you you can't be that lofty all the time, but you can try to be a little bit. But basically you inadvertently ended up in this position where now by virtue of showing bravery, well, you sold out the Sydney Opera House and five minutes. Pretty it's a matter. I think it's a matter of being afraid of the right thing. That's the issue. It's like I decided longtime ago partly from reading soldier in. It's in that. I was going to try to be very careful with by words, and I was only going to say things that I thought well to begin with we're lies. Let's say I was going to try to formulate my thoughts, truthfully. And the reason I decided that was because I thought that the opposite was hellishly dangerous. And I really I really I really believe that I truly. He believe that. And so I if I say things, and I think they're true. And they get in trouble. Then I think. Well, that's not as much trouble as I would have got into. If I would have said something that wasn't true. Like, it might be more trouble right now. Who knows right because you don't know how these things are going to turn out. I had this interview. Most of you know, about it with Cathy Newman from channel four right? And that was a pretty strange experience. So what you're saying? Is it was a great interview? Yeah. Exactly. Exactly, exactly. And you know, she was pretty professional when we went to the studio like someone like that is professional kind of hard surface, and glossy and media presentable, the TV turns you into that. And she was perfectly polite in a professional way until the camera went on. And then, you know, and then she went after me and. And then the whole interview went went the way it went. And I thought I I had like twenty interviews that day, and and so I walked away from that. And I thought oh, God they're going to take seven minutes of that and broadcast it and make me look like a complete monster. And that'll be the end of that. And that is exactly what they did except they also posted the entire thing on YouTube not knowing at all that it was a train wreck. They have no idea wasn't like they thought. Oh, this is a train wreck. Re better put it on YouTube. Wasn't that at all? They've thought it was a perfectly fine interview. So then it went on YouTube. And so well, so like my mood changed a lot. It was first of all. Well, this interview went catastrophically. And then it was well, they're only going to use seven minutes of it. That's gonna be a drag, but I'll probably get over it. And then they put it online. And then there was just an incredible reaction and then five ten newspaper. Came out to play the victim cards for poor Kathy. Which was now all the online trolls were after her. And I thought that really really struck me. I thought she's one of the most powerful people in the UK one of the thousand most powerful, let's say or the five hundred most powerful, she's no bloody victim, and she's played paid plenty wealth for what she does Jordan, by the way, don't forget that night that this all happened. She was she did a video in her car. Reading the troll the comments by the trolls. Because at that moment, she didn't realize she should play the victim card yet. Yeah. She was lab reveling, right? Right. And it wasn't until she realized that. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And so then her employees said, well, we had to call in the police to investigate unbelievably crooked thing to say, it's like anybody can call in the damn police to investigate anything. It's like, well, what constitutes a credible threat? There are ways of assessing credible threats. They have to be direct. Act and detail. That's not how you assess suicidality, for example, if you tell me that you have a plan, you know, when you're going to do it, you know, where you have a gun you've thought it through. It's like that's a credible threat. Sometimes I wish I wasn't here. That's not a credible threat. And you see the same sort of thing online. Well, then ten newspapers play the victim card that poor Cathy was being troubled by at that point a million. Trolls knew there were that many trolls. But apparently, they were and then I thought well, God, the whole thing's going to go sideways again because I'm gonna come out of this as the villain who called four th you know, the all right armada to take down poor innocent, Cathy Newman. And so it looked like it was going to shift that way for about four days. And then well that didn't work. There was a couple of other interviews that started to push back that narrative and then switched back to my side. But look, I'm making a point with this is when I do an interview like this interview, I. Don't. I follow this rule in my book rule, which is.
