Don’t Settle on a TMS. 5 Tough Love Tips to Choosing the Best Software
"6 p.m. Monday, November 14th, 2022. Don, tea settle on a TMS 5 tough love tips to choosing the best software. Having spent many years in business development and sales, I've spoken to many supply chain and logistics executives from a range of industries. More and more organizations these days see how their competitors are digitally transforming and they don't want to be left behind. Everyone wants to be leading their industry, but leading an industry requires taking risks and thinking differently about technology strategy. I've seen businesses make choices that they've come to regret. In fact, according to Gartner, 73 of tech purchasers who have bought but not yet implemented their product solutions indicated high regret. Acquiring the best transportation management system for your company's present and long-term success is doable, but it requires a certain amount of due diligence and change in perspective. Here are the top 5 strategies that will help you get the TMS selection process right.

"And have a lot of hope. Yeah, yeah, exactly. I mean, TMS has been researched now for 40 years, but for depression, 30 years, and really the last 20 years, the research, there's now a mountain of research supporting it. Ketamine as well the last 20 years that has garnered a lot of scientific support as well. Yeah, absolutely. What about side effects of TMS? Are there side effects to it? Or things that we have to look out for or even what are some of the myths out there about TMS that maybe people think. Yeah, I mean, I think there are some people who think that TMS may give them brain damage when in fact it's been shown to be healthy for the brain and to increase levels of healthy proteins and density of the hippocampus and whatnot. I think a lot of people think, you know, it sounds scary, right? It's kind of a mouthful to say. And I think a lot of people associate it with ECT or electroconvulsive therapy. And it's really quite different. The only similarity is that they are these external devices that input something into the brain. But that's really where the similarities end. So, you know, I think those are probably the largest hurdles. And I think people are also kind of scared of the time commitment and things like that and don't realize that there's a lot of people who do TMS and the sessions themselves are only three minutes. Whereas they used to take as long as 45 minutes. So by changing the actual frequency of simulation, people can get a much more sort of dance amount of treatment and a pretty short time. Well, you're saying they can do the TMS in only three minute sessions. So they sit in the chair for like three minutes if it's tuned correctly, I guess, to the area that you need to stimulate. And I would imagine that as we do this, that's getting better and better and better. As the research comes out as the experience comes out. Exactly, exactly. That three minute protocol is actually FDA approved. I think four years ago now, which is really great. So the old TMS, it took 45 minutes. People were and it really made it much less accessible than it is now. Whereas now, people can come in before work after work on their lunch break, things like that. Right. I didn't know that. That's amazing. Like three minutes to go in a chair and do this. I mean, obviously you got to show up and do all that stuff. So maybe more than three minutes, but it's not that 45 minutes of sitting there to be able to do it. That actually really does increase accessibility. Exactly. It really does. And so what is it like for you to see these people come through your doors, who may be in a lot of pain when they come in and then, you know, they go through this process. What's that like for you? So it's frustrating and it's rewarding at the same time, right? So it's obviously just amazing to see people come in and then a few weeks later, they are just a completely different person. You know, when people are severely depressed, you can almost see it on their face, especially in like a more typical sort of melancholic depression. And then just saying hi to someone in the hallway and all of a sudden they're smiling and cracking jokes is just amazing to see. At the same time, you know, it's super frustrating to see people come in who have been suffering for so long who ask, if this has been around and evidence based for so long, why am I only hearing about it now? My doctor told me about the center. And I have no answer for that. I've done all I can at this point to educate professionals and to educate people about it. But it seems like medicine is a little slow to switch in some ways. And so it ends up that slow transition, I think, ends up weaving a lot of people's suffering for far too long. That maybe don't need to suffer. I can see how hard that is to see people come in who have spent maybe years in this depressive state struggling to just hang on, right? Just to be there. And maybe that could have been different for them if they had just heard about this or known about this. I mean, I think that's one of the driving forces of even just doing this podcast is to get that information out there to people that there's these things that might help. Right. Right, exactly. Yeah, absolutely. Well, Ben, I want to go in there and just talking about helping people. I want to thank you so much for coming on to the addicted mind podcast. But before we go, I always ask one question of everybody comes on. If you could say one thing to someone out there who might be suffering, who might be in pain or know someone who's in pain, what would you want to tell them? What would you want to say to them? I want them to know that they have more options than they realize. And that, you know, if you've tried the usual stuff, don't worry, there are still, there are still a lot more options to feel better. Absolutely. So don't give up, don't keep looking, reach out, find these things, investigate them. There are so many more options out there if you're struggling. If people want to know more about this, how can they find you, where can they where can they get a hold of you? Yeah, so our company is called TMS and brain health. We have offices in LA, Las Vegas, and Sedona, and our website is WWW dot TMS brain health dot com. Awesome, Ben, I will put all those links in the show notes as well at the addictive mind dot com.

"This a permanent change in the brain? Yeah, so in terms of how long people do it for, the standard course is 36 sessions. So you do most people do 5 sessions a week for 6 weeks, and then they taper the remaining 6 sessions over the next two to three weeks. That taper is really necessary. It's kind of this artifact of when the FDA approved TMS, they weren't quite sure what it was and they thought, you know, medications, you have to wean off on a slowly, so maybe the stimulation you do as well. You don't have to with DMS. But that is there. There's also a more expedited type of TMS, which is called accelerated TMS. It's a little newer, but basically this is like an intensive 5 day protocol of TMS where you do a ten sessions a day. But after those 5 days you're done. And in terms of how long the results last for, and about 90% of people, they don't need any maintenance Sessions. They don't need an additional course of TMS. But about 10% of people do need to come back. At some point, it's a hard question to answer because depression is episodic in one's lifetime. And moreover, depression is often precipitated by stress and triggered by stress so that people may do okay for a while, but maybe there is a significant death in the family plus no loss of job and sometimes that can sort of tip people over the edge into depressive territory again. Back into that to that state where their brain kind of goes to and that area of the brain starts to shut down again I guess what we were talking about earlier with depression and the kind of back in that cycle. Right. But the good thing about TMS is that we've heard that even when people do relapse in the rare circumstances that they do, we're told that the depression is much more mild than it was in the past. So even if their brain does kind of start to go back to that older pattern, it's not going to be as severe as it was initially. Yeah. Yeah, definitely. So as you're talking, I have another question. I'm thinking you might not know the answer to this. Who thought of this idea? Let's put a giant magnet on somebody's brain. And get it activated. Where did TMS come from? And I don't know if you know the answer to that, but I'm just really curious. So it actually started in 1985 in England, and it started as a way to measure muscle activity and the health of different spinal pathways. So it was used in neurology and basically people would stimulate a part of their brain responsible for making a limb move, like making your leg move, for instance. So they would simulate that part of the brain and they connect an electrode on the lab to measure the muscle activity. And the goal was to measure the health of these different pathways. And then in the 80s, we really didn't have many good ways to look at the brain itself. So it was kind of used as this rudimentary neuroimaging methodology where you kind of stimulate the brain and see what happens. And if the messes with your vision, for instance, you kind of know, okay, this part of the brain is roughly responsible for vision. And so, but about ten years later in 1995, the use of functional neuroimaging became much more available and used much more. And so that was at that time there was this initial research that showed, hey, this one part of the brain, the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is impaired in depression. And that's weird. It doesn't even matter what type of depression unipolar depression, bipolar depression, postpartum depression, no matter what type this brain area was always implicated. And so a researcher by the name of Mark George, who's the university of South Carolina medical center. He's kind of like The Godfather of TMS. And he's ultimately the one responsible for where TMS is today. So he thought, okay, we have this way to create magnetic stimulation. We know this part of the brain is impaired and it's pretty close to the scalp. So we could probably stimulate it. So let's see what happens. And so the first clinical trial done was in 1995. It was very small sample size. 5 to ten people. And they only did it for about a week or two, but the results were positive enough that they then kind of use that research to then run much larger trials and they saw, wow, this is not that wasn't just a random occurrence. This really is helping people. Like, this is doing something. There's some real hope here, because I mean, depression sucks. Yeah. It's the leading cause of disability worldwide. Wow. Yeah. And it's so such a hard place to be that this really offers a lot of hope to people out there who may really be struggling. And especially I think a side effect of depression is addiction because if you're in that kind of pain, it's so hard to just live there. A 100%. Yeah, I absolutely agree to you and I talk about this to whoever will listen to me. Well, I'm glad you're here and sharing this message. You know, we think about addiction as this diagnosis on its own or this sort of separate disorder. But at the end of the day, addiction is really just a symptom of some other underlying mental health diagnosis. And so, you know, you go to any treatment center, you go to any meeting, and you can't find someone who's there who doesn't have a diagnosis of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or ADHD. It's just not there. Yeah, absolutely. And I think it's so important to be able to see that because a lot of times, addiction, you know, it's not as much today as it used to be, but was just framed as this lack of moral character or a lack of willpower or something. And what we really know now is that there is real biological things going on in people's brains that no matter how hard they think or how hard they work on it can be really, really difficult to change. So I mean, it's so important. Exactly. Exactly. It's really great to be able to provide this, I think. Especially after spending so many years just kind of watching people go through the motions and more traditional substance abuse treatment to now having all of these different options. And you know, we'll see people sometimes who have been, they've done this stuff they're supposed to do right there. They have seen a psychiatrist try medication. They've been in therapy, and nothing works. And there's almost an underlying sense of shame in that I tried all this stuff. It's still not working, you know, I did the staff, what's wrong with me? Yeah, I'm broken. A lot of shame. Right, exactly. And you know, it's unfortunate that I think there's still not that much awareness right now, just about what people's options really are. And really, there are so many more options than a lot of people realize. Yeah. And the research is backing those options up, which is really exciting. The evidence is there that some of these alternative.

"When you target it to this part of the brain specifically, it actually increases activity in this area that is previously deficient, right? So when people do TMS, they come in, typically, 5 days a week, and week by week, the symptoms of depression start to go away, just as this other part of the brain starts to come back online. So your putting this device near the brain that emits a strong magnetic pulse that then gets that part of the brain activated, which then starts to alleviate that depression, because that part of the brain is just for whatever reason, I guess. I don't know if we know why. Is enacted, is it moving? And that causes that depression. And so this magnet, what does it do? How does it make it active? So it's actually the machine itself is actually fairly large. It's about the size of a refrigerator. And the strength of the magnet is actually the strength of one MRI machine. But it's a very, very focused signal. And so basically, the brain cells communicate via electrical conduction. And so when it has this big madman on the scalp, that magnetic field basically tells all of those brain cells underneath the scalp to turn on, which then sort of turns on this pathway of these other cells that are connected to the original cells, turning on again. So basically, they're kind of it kind of acts as like a remote to turn it on if that makes sense. Yeah, so it's like it's getting it activated. It stimulating those nerves. So this, to me, kind of says, also, one of the reasons for some people, you can't just think yourself out of depression, right? Because a lot of people like just feel better, just you should just think positive thoughts. I mean, that might help to a certain degree, I guess, but you really need to activate these parts of the brain. Is that a correct statement? Yeah, yeah, that's exactly right. And I think that, you know, a lot of people, I think especially in the AA community, you know, there is this idea that you can just do therapy or that you can do the steps or go to meetings and kind of talk through your depression, which works for mild cases, right? Cognitive behavioral therapies is definitely treatment for depression. But when it's not working, there's kind of nowhere to go unless you're actually creating real changes in the brain. Otherwise, you're just going to plateau because the underlying neurobiology can't really support anything else. Right, it's stuck there. It's stuck in exactly in that. And you can't think your way out of it. And I think that's why it's so important for people to understand that sometimes we need these alternative ways to get the brain active again. And now we know the brain is so like we said earlier, it's changing all the time. We can do this. Right. Exactly. Right. So tell me a little bit about how this is because it's also used in depression, but how is it also used in anxiety, OCD, and all of these other issues that sometimes kind of go along with depression? Yeah, so in our experience, TMS is most helpful for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, and chronic pain. And basically, you know, it has this really fascinating issue. And this is kind of why, as a researcher, I got interested in this in graduate school, is you have sort of these in infinite level of parameters that you can change in the TMS device itself. That can really impact kind of how it works and what it's working for. So for instance, you can actually change the placement of the brain. So instead of targeting the left or the lateral prefrontal cortex for depression, a lot of practitioner as well actually target the right side. So the opposite side for anxiety. And likewise, with OCD, there's another part of the brain that we tend to stimulate as well called the anterior cingulate cortex, which is very heavily implicated in OCD and tends to sort of have the same issue where it's basically stuck in OCD as well. So by changing the placement, you can really change exactly what you're treating. And then you can continue to change little parameters as well. The duration of the session can sometimes have a pretty big impact or the actual frequency or pattern of stimulation itself. So another question I wanted to ask you was how ADHD and addiction play together and how actually TMS can help with that component. Yeah, well, a lot of people don't realize this, but people with ADHD are much more likely to be addicted than a neurotypical person. I forget the ratio exactly. I think it may be two to three times more likely to be to suffer from addiction, as well as way more likely to be incarcerated and to have really a number of issues in life. So before we go a little bit farther, real quick for people out there, let's just define ADHD. We hear it thrown out all the time. What does it actually mean? And what's going on there? And then let's go into a little bit how TMS changes that and shifts that. But first, let's just define it. Yeah, so attention deficit hyperactive disorder. So there are sort of three main types of ADHD in the literature. So one is the sort of, you know, what you usually think of with ADHD, which is the hyperactive subtype, so you think of a boy in school running around to can't sit down, can't sit still, things like that. And then you also have an inattentive subtype. And so these are people who they don't have the hyperactivity. These are people who zone out of our, it's really hard to focus on things, but they don't have the issue of, you.

"Hello everyone, welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Ben Spielberg and he is going to jump in and maybe talk a little bit about his own journey in mental health, but we're going to talk about a specific topic. TMS, which stands for transcranial magnetic stimulation. Did I get that right, Ben? You did. Exactly right. Awesome. All right, so jump in and tell us a little bit about you and how you got into this work. And why do this work? Yeah, yeah. So thank you so much for having me. So I originally started working in the field of mental health in around 2010 and my first job in mental health was as a biofeedback technician at a substance abuse and recovery treatment center in Los Angeles. So my role there was really working directly with patients and basically hooking them up to computers and different devices that track their own physiology. And then helping them do exercises to them sort of get some volitional control over their physiology. So for instance, there's something called heart rate variability, which is this metric that you can look at that is really kind of this all encompassing health marker in a lot of ways where you want more heart rate variability, which is associated with better longevity, better stress response that are emotional control and things like that. We were also doing specifically biofeedback on the brain, which is also called neurofeedback. And neurofeedback basically people have electrodes put on their heads to monitor their brain activity in real time. And they would watch a computer screen and they'd see they bought a movie on the computer. And the movie would pause when the computer detected that they were experiencing what we call like a maladaptive brain pattern basically. Over time, as you keep doing this, your brain kind of learns how to be more neuroplastic and create better pathways because it's sort of like holding a mirror up in a way. So I did this for a few years while I was an undergrad. And I was fascinated at the amount of change that we could create in people that didn't involve any medication or any intervention otherwise basically. So people were, you know, they would be 30 days sober and they'd be they'd be very emotionally dysregulated, right? So one little stressor can sort of trigger someone into this sort of existential crisis as what happens in early sobriety. But as people did neurofeedback, they became so much more resilient to all of these stressors. And moreover, it helped with anxieties, sleep, mood, and things like that. And so this was very different than your standard talk therapy modality, which was, I guess, much of the standard of a lot of addiction treatment go in, talk to a therapist, talk about why you're doing all these things. And try and change it. You don't do talk therapy in this part of it. It's very interactive right to the brain. That's what it sounds like. Right. Right, exactly. And the cool thing about it is, you know, so many people would come to treatment who had been in treatment before who had done so many hours of therapy in the past, and with neurofeedback, all you have to do is show up. And it doesn't really matter what you think about it, what you're thinking about, your brain is picking up on the signals regardless. And so for the people who are done with talking, the people who have kind of exhausted that option, it was a great option for them because they just, you know, they could just sit there and their brains sort of does the rest. Which is amazing because if you're under a lot of distress and especially like when you look at it addiction, sometimes that's all you can muster is to show up because you have all these other crises going on and it can be so difficult to make any kind of change. Exactly, exactly. And so that's what I did for basically all of my undergraduate education. I was working at two different substance abuse treatment centers doing neurofeedback working one on one with patients. And when I graduated, I really felt like I needed more of a hard science understanding of everything just because there were kind of little tweaks that one can make with neurofeedback like changing the placement of the electrodes or changing the what the threshold is on the computer to give that person feedback. So I really wanted to understand that at a deep level. So I got into a master's program in neuroscience at Columbia and I went there with the idea that I really specialize in this overarching field called neuromodulation, which is basically sort of all of these non pharmaceutical ways to create real changes in the brain that are very evidence based and supported in the literature. So neuromodulation, what does that mean? Yeah, so it means that these are devices that can change the brain, right? So if the brain is dysregulated, these different these different interventions can help to re regulate the brain or rewire their brain in some way. Right. And I mean, we used to really think the brain was so static and, you know, you're kind of like, after the age of 18, that's what you got. It's done. But we really know now that that's so not the reality. Our brains are so adaptive. Yeah, they're changing all the time. Our brains are changing right now from this very conversation. And it's so funny, I remember as a kid, people telling me your brain doesn't change. You know, once you're over the age of 18, right, your brain is fixed. These are all the cells that you'll have for these with the structures that you'll have for life. And now we know it's just totally inaccurate. Your brain is changing all the time. Some areas are more plastic than others, some areas can grow new neurons and some it's a little harder, but it's interesting how that's really shifted over the years. So using neuromodulation were specifically targeting areas we want to change in a specific way. Exactly. Exactly. So with TMS, for example, with transcranial magnetic stimulation, which is an FDA approved treatment for depression. We know that depression. Well, we've heard that depression for many years is associated with this serotonin deficiency or a neurotransmitter imbalance, which I'm sure most people listening have heard before AD nauseam. But the neuroscience research shows that's not really an accurate representation of what's going on in the brain when people are depressed. And so what's really happening and research has shown this for the past 30 years now is that these specific parts of the brain are actually under active, right? So there's a part of the brain called the left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, which is a mouth hole, and it's basically the left top side of your head. And that area has been shown to be underactive in people with depression, meaning that people with depression, this part of the brain has less blood flow, less cellular, metabolism, and less activity in general. And so with TMS, it's basically this device that emits these magnetic waves. And.

We're going to talk about Camilla Harris who's the vice president of the United States. And she styled as the duchess of Sacramento. And or actually, we don't have to talk about her. What would you like to talk about? Rather, move to more elevated topics. I've got a piece of stream dot org called a pale blue dot, I think not. And in it I talk a bit about your book is atheism dead. I talk about the book, the privileged planet. Carl Sagan on the old cosmos from the 1970s and 80s. Used to present the vastness and emptiness of the universe. And are small rather off center position in it as proof of human insignificance. He would say things like in a wear on a third rate planet with a second tier star and an unfashionable neighborhood of the back end of nowhere of an universe that is vast and seemingly empty. Where there is doubtless life on billions of other planets, and maybe far more advanced than our own. Well, since then, science, capital S, science, TM, trademark, has discovered something new. It's discovered that there are very few planets in the universe that are in fact inhabitable. We used to think, oh, maybe there's life based not on carbon, but silicon or magnesium based life forms. No, no. Science is increasingly found that life has to be based on carbon, it has to have water, it has to have tectonic plates. It has to have a moon. It has to be within a certain distance, perfect sort of Goldilocks distance to a medium sized star. The number of constraints on inhabitable exoplanets has kept growing and growing and growing. And the number of candidates for planets that might have life has been shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and shrinking until it seems increasingly as if earth and maybe a few other very earth like planets somewhere. Are the only places where life could possibly exist. I would go, I have gone a step farther in what I have written. I have said that the number of planets where life should exist shrank down down down down down to zero and then kept going. In other words, the odds against life even existing on a single planet like earth went below zero to increasingly impossible to the point where I now argue in my book miracles and in the new book is atheism dead that the odds against any life existing are

On Friday there as I said, flooding not only around here but throughout the mid Atlantic. So if you're traveling, keep that in mind. Otherwise, we're going to keep some Marine chances around for the weekend with a slow moving cold front. Humidity looks to drop, especially by Sunday, but temperatures will be right. Around 84 this weekend, so it will be a little cooler, but fortunately we do have some rain chances. Better chance right now on Saturday than on Sunday, we see have to see how quickly this frontal system moves through the area. Right now. We're at 81 degrees here in Washington.

INSOMNIAC. tweeted out the video. cavs. GonNa, show you here in a second says the suit you've all been asking about is here and you unlock it early with a preorder for playstation five or playstation four. So you can extrapolate extrapolate out. Of course, you can unlock this without pre ordering pre order just gets you there quicker, which is nice. And then of course, friend of the show, James Stevenson from Tom omnion gains had his own tweet this the incredible vibe diverse suit. MoD. Causes the suit to mimic the visual frequency of another earth. The special animation you're about to see in the video we're going to watch you can't you can't quit or attaches to a different suit. So as we watch right here, of course, this review of the Miles Morales in the spider pursued as you see it go. It's doing that like different frame rate thing from the movie. Let alone when he goes into big attacks here you're getting the POWs and the things in the animated stuff there. So what James It's amy if I'm reading this, right, what James is saying is like how Spiderman had the different mods you? Put on the suit this mob visual, not the visual style of the Internet spider for suit, which is there but I'm guessing the frame rate and like the glitches kind of nature of it right can be applied to any suit is what I'm getting because he's saying it's asked to a different sue. So you're saying with the like the old cartoon style suit you you put this on there and have that same thing happened. If they have that suit in this see this isn't well, it's going to riot. Works it's fair. That's fair I. Understand you heard that works. Didn't they do it for the one of the other Spiderman suits and it's one of those. Rainy, people. What nothing. Blessing came back to where you came back. There was another blessing screen Tori it out I feel like I like it don't worry about it is. How much work you know what I mean I think welcome back hey what's up guys I? Don't know what happened. I. was like there's an outage going on in my area or what? Earlier today at my Internet went out for like a split second and I was like, Oh, it's nothing to worry about apparently some new worrying about your. Blessing what are your thoughts on the Miles Morales into despite of her suit? I, think that's really cool I think it. It's very expected that they do this. Of course inspired man twenty, eight, eighteen they all the different suits including Raimi's spider man suit inspired me homecoming and so if they can get those suits into the game, I feel like the natural progression is this getting into the spider, a Sumitomo Rallies, and so that's really cool. I I, think the to the what they're calling you. But like the we're frame rate affects you have is the vibe the verse suit MoD yeah, I think that's interesting. It seems like something that all probably unequipped. I feel like it's. An actual gameplay. It'll probably be kind of distracting. I I liked that being there like it's a really cool effect to have on and so overall like I'm really into this this this seems really cool. Yeah. I think I'm with you obviously the suit I think it was expected especially you know like you're pointing out that after into despite of stop they dropped the Peter Parker skin into Spiderman ps four. I think we're expecting that I wasn't expecting the suit mock you change it. So drastically to make it look different even though I guess S. shortsighted right because even from what we've seen of like with the data cat skin being added into the game and then the cat being able to do attacks and stuff it's more of what you need to expect from insomniac with this franchise in that's just TLC. They'RE GONNA go above beyond and try to hit the little things and make it actually matter I. Think you you. You WanNa talk about suits like the Knox I use fake air quotes there like people who? Didn't get the amazing spiderman suit right from the movies. The Amazing Spiderman suit ps four, and now, of course, they're adding that in this time around on remastered. So it's like these are I've said it before and I think if you even go back and watch like spoiler casts, we did with Brian into her after the releases vitamin PS for like you can tell that they love this property and they know what want this game is what they're putting in this game and that's going to extrapolate out to what fans want because they're real fans. Yeah and I like the fact that they're putting this and In the Bat, right? Like this is something that's going to be available to people as soon as they're able to boot up the game the one thing it says here yeah. If you you unlock it early annual unlock it early with a preorder on his five or ps four. So I'm not sure what the getting is there what how that works but that's the way better than inspired me man ps four there were skins are put way after the fact and like for the man Ramey Skin, for example, that's a skin that I absolutely loved in that game I thought it was awesome. I. Like the idea that I go back and play as the same at that I played. Yeah inspired me and I'll sweet. This is awesome. Let's go. But the fact that they added added it in afterwards meant that I'm not playing the game as as much as I would have liked to So like this is cool. That's going to be available for people I think that's really awesome in. Yeah like it seems like they really are going above and beyond or they have gone above and beyond as far as beyond as far as putting in that. TLC. Like you said, right and having fans people for between two thousand eighteen. What seems like we'll be mild paralysis.

So you're saying with the like the old cartoon style suit you you put this on there and have that same thing happened. If they have that suit in this see this isn't well, it's going to riot. Works it's fair. That's fair I. Understand you heard that works. Didn't they do it for the one of the other Spiderman suits and it's one of those. Rainy, people. What nothing. Blessing came back to where you came back. There was another blessing screen Tori it out I feel like I like it don't worry about it is. How much work you know what I mean I think welcome back hey what's up guys I? Don't know what happened. I. was like there's an outage going on in my area or what? Earlier today at my Internet went out for like a split second and I was like, Oh, it's nothing to worry about apparently some new worrying about your. Blessing what are your thoughts on the Miles Morales into despite of her suit? I, think that's really cool I think it. It's very expected that they do this. Of course inspired man twenty, eight, eighteen they all the different suits including Raimi's spider man suit inspired me homecoming and so if they can get those suits into the game, I feel like the natural progression is this getting into the spider, a Sumitomo Rallies, and so that's really cool. I I, think the to the what they're calling you. But like the we're frame rate affects you have is the vibe the verse suit MoD yeah, I think that's interesting. It seems like something that all probably unequipped. I feel like it's. An actual gameplay. It'll probably be kind of distracting. I I liked that being there like it's a really cool effect to have on and so overall like I'm really into this this this seems really cool. Yeah. I think I'm with you obviously the suit I think it was expected especially you know like you're pointing out that after into despite of stop they dropped the Peter Parker skin into Spiderman ps four. I think we're expecting that I wasn't expecting the suit mock you change it. So drastically to make it look different even though I guess S. shortsighted right because even from what we've seen of like with the data cat skin being added into the game and then the cat being able to do attacks and stuff it's more of what you need to expect from insomniac with this franchise in that's just TLC. They'RE GONNA go above beyond and try to hit the little things and make it actually matter I. Think you you. You WanNa talk about suits like the Knox I use fake air quotes there like people who? Didn't get the amazing spiderman suit right from the movies. The Amazing Spiderman suit ps four, and now, of course, they're adding that in this time around on remastered. So it's like these are I've said it before and I think if you even go back and watch like spoiler casts, we did with Brian into her after the releases vitamin PS for like you can tell that they love this property and they know what want this game is what they're putting in this game and that's going to extrapolate out to what fans want because they're real fans.
Monocle 24: The Globalist
Here are the 2020 Emmy Awards highlights
"So much nowadays traditional Glam, gathering of the EMMYS was shrunk down to a virtual version. This year, the winners had to dial in from their sofas but did to scale down show remove any of the fun while I'm joined by the phone critic Karen Cranach from welcome back Karen. Now, Jimmy Kimmel called this the pandemic. What was it like? You. Don't I was reading about the run up because of course, they had five days of the creative emmys, which was very interesting which covered documentarian sports things like that. We don't really get to see those its role waiting for the television ones television on comedy and they're all saying, oh, it's can be terrible to glitches and there were absolutely no. Glitches at all the writing was sensitive national it probably would have worked alive, and in fact, what they were doing is they were cutting back into the audience of previous years. So at first we thought Kimmel was presented to reluctance of couldn't be, and then of course, we see that it's an empty staple center with cardboard cutouts except one person Jason Bateman. It worked really really well, and as you said, he called the Pan Denny's. You can't have virus without a host modest M.. It. Last year it was host free. So he's making a double point there isn't he? Will he is I mean there is a discussion for all the wards shows that you know do we really need a host to carry through to give a a link King presents between all of the awards and sometimes you need that sometimes you don't, but he's very, very good in this effect was. Nominated himself didn't win but for for this year. So he solid reacted really well, and particularly with Jennifer Aniston was was there in I'm assuming was a prerecorded, extra it live. Where he's burning one of the emmy envelopes to sanitize it, and if the fire gets out of control, she actually does put put. The. Fire. Out on stage. Tell US little bit more than about. Who won who lost how things went? Arguably, this was possibly our final reminder. Some was that it was a blissful reminder of our recent past, but people could still make television in the same room. I think we're we're all I. Think we're we're going to get nostalgic about these virtual awards shows really because they could do so much more with with a with a regular live show somebody sends in a prerecorded or televisual link you feel cheated. Now you feel that you've got more possibility because the people can actually record something or talk to you live. So it Kinda works really well, for example, before I go to the awards there was almost apprentice reunion lease a Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and Lisa kudrow showed up altogether and Jimmy Kimmel's going what are you doing together and he goes she goes well, we've Jennifer says. We've been living together since nineteen ninety four. It was just a lovely surprised wouldn't have been able to happen in real life. So it was great now. watchmen with the big re reimagined science fiction. Series was for twenty six nominations at one eleven including UN series. Star. Regina. King and also best limited series which is amazing and that helped push the HBO show to Thirty Wins in total, which is very important and also Shits Creek, of course, we have to put little tm on there because it's spelled S. C. H. W. T. s. did a sweep a to record for comedy shows of nine wins and it was yeah it's it's incredible. It's last is the final. Season for that show and it was wonderful to see all of our beloved. Canadian actors. That was a hugely hugely popular series it turned up on flicks. But it didn't start with nets, which is weird. Yes it has found that second life. Elsa Bell Rutland. Well, it was really pop TV and it just it got a cult following because. I mean, these I've been watching Catherine O'Hara Levy since the seventies I mean they were at second city which the rivals Saturday night live we've seen them in American pie everywhere. These are very, very good season actors and writers and the fact that they show up with this unique show on pop TV it just goes to show you that if something's good against audience people will see

20 Minutes About Traditional Chinese Medicine
"Hey, Marcus welcome to the show Tame Martin well I have to say I've been really looking forward to it because we've known each other now for well over a decade and while you had taken quite an interesting path of going real deep into Chinese Madison starting and you know actively practicing this while ancient on over in Europe and anyways I've been really wanting to do this show on Chinese medicine because over the past few months we've covered quite A few interesting topics you on the podcast about the microbiome new tropics, cavalry metabolic health, and so forth. NFL Lot of the conclusions that we're drawing in our recent age seem to have actually been practiced for thousands of years in Chinese medicine, and that brought me back to you. But before we go deep into this topic, why don't you first tell us a little bit about how he got into Chinese medicine in the first place? Yes. Sure. So Basketball and tennis when I was a kid a teenager and frequent injuries and went to all the doctors a bunch of Western medicine treatments that didn't quite help and then I ended guy practicing Japanese acupuncture. So they just using really really thin fine needles that you almost don't feel and I remember going up to his office and could barely. Account on her car is my Nieto's started so bad at its second cute rain in them and then, and then you just put a bunch of needles somewhere. I hopped off his bench. Like if nothing was. Like nothing was wrong and I remember it took forever to get up the stairs there and all that just up down. was made quite an impact on me re that that was like immediate immediate. That must have left an impression and you tried like well, traditional. Western. Medicine to treat your knee at that time just conventional stuff your painkillers, etc.. Physiotherapy all the things that they give you go talk none of them were orthopedic specialist none of that worked now, not only for some things that works and then and then this guy is. By. The way you play affected. Enough such bad acne base and your low energy levels and that you'll always cold that is just the branch of the same route. So it's all it all kind of linked together with the same root cause and. Then, he gave me a bunch of herbs in two months later up in this really cystic acne was really bad doing a lot of western medicine things that it took quite a toll my health to at the time 'cause. He's injections or quiet. They're messing with your system out there drying you out your spacious clans and older glance pretty much everywhere, and so there's a lot of side effects and he gave me a bunch of herbs so to Vivian Natural Dumb. That made my help me keep my back in away and made my Kimble's significantly reduce and so. That's what hooked, and then I always wanted to become a doctor. So I had a high school degree. So I got a scholarship and the fine print scholarship that I could pretty much use it anywhere and so was thinking, do I go to the United States in Germany? China. Server. Since then you know I was interested in Chinese medicine also and and that's actually where we met. Yeah. So I got, you know I had a had a spot at a German university medical school and didn't go and instead you we went to China to be. Teachers for a few months, and while while teaching their inner, we didn't have much to do teaching. So end around I went around there's over four thousand, but they call integrative medicine hospitals. So it's Chinese medicine and Western medicine together combined in different departments. Of course, everybody does what they're good at but are essentially were together and a lot of time on these speak laments in China in one of those muscles and then I signed up at a Chinese university instead of the German one and I study what they call Jewish, Jehovah Chinese, medicine, and Western medicine combined with the focus being on the Chinese medicine side. And I completed that study it's a five year degree mostly in Chinese language. Muslim classes were essentially chinese-language in the beginning it a little bit of English classes in a Western medicine intended teachers kind of because they're English was so bad. In Chinese anyways even though we were like international and that was in. Beijing right. That was on Beijing five years in Beijing, and then I went to Hong Kong for another five years where we met again. At the end, I did my phd in what's called evidence based Chinese medicine over using modern scientific methods like clinical trials, Placebo, controlled randomized control trials, and instead of giving you experts at drunk we're using for example, in ancient acupuncture protocols or in my case was elbow pain it's like a two thousand year old extra puncture point protocol that they've been using since at least two thousand years per elbow pain and re looked at it was the is out son of modern science and understanding how that stuff works but we are playing these ancient principles. The Same WanNa do for you today was these five health tips or twenty twenty TM health. Cultivation, wisdom, that's what they call for staying. Healthy. So I, WanNa give you a few tips and ahead of quotes from the ancient books, and then I also pulled up a few research studies that kind of backup, what they're saying or giving another perspective on it. So we re using these ancient time tested principles, and then we're also looking at them. You know some the lenses of scientific method world of mearns,
F5 Networks "Big-IP" devices in Big-Trouble
"At the very end of last month, I think it was June thirtieth. F Five networks released a critical. Patch for their so called big IP systems. It was a maximum. Eighty as the way, it was termed remote code execution flaw. Disclosed it don't get worse. than their so called. Tm You I the traffic management user interface of the big Ip, which is actually you know like a trademark. I don't know what it stands for Ip Internet Protocol that big. Maybe it's Ad for something other than just big. Their application delivery controller ADC big on initials here. Anyway this came to light. As a consequence of F. Five publishing this patch. And with it was an urgent call for users of the so called big IP systems to immediately update with the highest possible priority. and. Big Big. Big Big Ip's f five's customers using these big IP solutions, our government's fortune. Five hundred firms banks service providers well known brands, including Microsoft Oracle and Facebook I. Mean You know this is big iron? So as we noted at the time, F five's website boasts that forty eight of the fortune fifty rely on five so somehow they missed two of the top fifty companies in the US. And at the time of the disclosure. So not quite, but almost a month ago. More than eight thousand of these big IP F five networks devices were found online. Publicly accessible on the Internet and vulnerable to attacks designed to exploit this vulnerability, US Cyber Command urged F- like independently urged F. Five customers to patch their devices urgently. They tweeted patching. E twenty, twenty, five, nine. Oh, two and five nine three should not be postponed over the weekend. remediate immediately. Wow! Five also offered some interim mitigation measures that they recommended for their customers. Who could not for whatever reason patch their big I fe- big IP equipment immediately you know sometimes that requires you take it down for some length of time and reboot, but later came to light that the mitigation could be mitigated and bypassed, which made emergency patching the only safe course like you know, do it now. So two days after the patches for this critical. Vulnerability were released. Researchers started publicly posting proof of concept exploits, showing just how easy it would be to exploit them. So that was then. Three weeks later last Friday the twenty fourth, the cyber and infrastructure security agency. Say posted. They, said CIA ESSA is issuing this alert. In response to receiving to recently disclosed exploits that that target F five big IP devices that are vulnerable to Blah Blah Blah. unpackaged big five. Unpacked F five big IP devices. An attractive target for malicious actors. Affected organizations that have not applied the patch to fix this critical remote code. Execution Vulnerability risk an attacker. Outing that CV to take control of their system note, EH, five security advisory states that there is a high probability that any remaining unpack. Each devices are likely already compromised. CIS A expect to see continued attacks exploiting unpackaged big F five big IP devices, and strongly urges users administrators to upgrade their software to the fixed versions. CIS also advises that administrators deploy the signature included in this alert to help them determine whether they're systems have been compromised, and so the the signature was a a a traffic inspection. Script in order to see whether there is bad stuff going on, they said see I say has observed scanning and reconnaissance as well as confirmed compromises. Within a few days of F five's patch release of this vulnerability as early as July sixth. CIS Say has seen broad scanning activity for the presence of this vulnerability across federal departments and agencies. This activity is currently occurring as of the publication of this alert meaning gay from as early as July six as one that did began and this this alert was last Friday the twenty four th, so this has been going on. They conclude the ISI has been working with several entities across multiple sectors to investigate potential compromises relating to this vulnerability. has confirmed to compromises and continuing to investigate. CIS CIS will alert will update this alert with any additional actionable information. Okay so. Now this is a classic example, and actually this sort of ties into where will be going here in a minute when we talk about Garmon. I've often been speaking about the growing critical need for companies and to a lesser degree individuals, but certainly individuals who care to be certain that they have an are maintaining an open channel of communication for receiving vulnerability notices I've been talking about email as that channel. But in thinking about this further. I think that twitter likely makes the most sense now. As I noted last week. Twitter really has become our global information dissemination platform. Warts and all
True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest
Where did they go
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host kid chrome by popular demand I'm revisiting the issue of vanishing 's. Where did they go the roanoke colonists Amelia. EARHART would a Percy Fawcett vanishing in search for the city of Z. can anything truly vanished in this world, the great vanishing people and things Amelia. EARHART disappeared over the Pacific. There's no doubt that she crash landed or ditched her plane. And of course the question remains why she captured by the Japanese did she and and. Her navigator starved to death on a remote island, but she didn't vanish in the true sense of the word, the question simply what happened to her. In contrast, we have the vanishing of flight nineteen, a group of maybe bombers disappeared during postwar training mission. Now they vanished. No oil slicks no wreckage. The five planes it made up the nineteen. None were ever recovered no trace. A search team dispatched to look for them disappeared, but there was an oil slick in wreckage in. In an explosion was noted the five TM's vanished. The rescue team disappeared by ask a question again. Can anything actually vanished from this world? Let's look again. The Franklin expedition that set sail in eighteen, forty, five with two ships in search of the northwest passage. Now there's an incident that disappeared in the Arctic and were considered lost for two hundred years, perhaps vanished, but the two ships, nearly forty crew, simply vanishing was considered a big mystery, almost as big as Amelia earhart recently. Recently, both ships were discovered as well as many of the graves of the crew yet in the eighteen eighties. We have a bride and groom riding in a wagon. The ten miles from bake of Oregon across follow simply vanish. Their progress has been monitored, and when they didn't arrive at the ranch across hollow where they were to wed a month long search was put on an and not a trace was found not of the horses, the wagon or the bride and groom. That I. my point is that people and things do vanish, but do they vanish from this world. The question is addressed by Professor Vincent Pool he stays did Albert Einstein that there are multiple dimensions, but professor pool believes that there are not only many dimensions, but I in there every evolution they are similar to Earth and they are connected to our dimension by what he calls umbilical connections, and that an individual can easily pass through one of these umbilical connections and seemingly vanish. He also spouses a theory that the reason that we have no contact with you. Outside of our atmospheres of flying saucers or flying unidentified flying objects come from another dimension Professor Pool Sites Fifteenth, century issue between Spanish conquistadors and a priest in ancient village of Crisco, where a priest racing ahead of the Spanish invasion took a gold disc from a church, and ran into the Higher Markelle mountains for upon he met to Shaman who took the disc impressed into rock face that opened the door to another dimension. Sounds like a nice story, right? Yet. There is a place in the higher mountains were stone face has been etched, and a small seemingly pressed into stone at the center of that small door. There is a indentation that circular. That is the same size as the disc taken by the priest when he fled the Spanish. Pool claims this represents the. Into another dimension, so do people and things vanish before you scoff at the idea. Take a trip to Peru. The high remark mountains and try to explain the small door the disc indentation. They're gonNA. Decide and if you can't make the trip, we'll google it up. It's an interesting part of the issue of can things vanish

Who's Right About The Economy? Wall Street Or Silicon Valley?
"Who's right about the economy right now. Silicon Valley or Wall Street. Let me start by saying that. We're going to hopefully have really speculative high level discussion about the global economy here. And I'm pretty. I know for a fact. I'm not qualified to have that kind of a discussion. And maybe you aren't at the level that I M- aspiring to here either. So I think we're GONNA caveat that guys at the top but Alex look the reason we're is because on twitter. I saw a piece the gist of which was You know everyone that I talked to in tech and Silicon Valley and investing and venture venture side of investing. They're all sort of battening down for a nuclear winter and then meanwhile the stock market while not back to where it was you know is sort of roaring back and so. I've been asking people all the time like who's right here Wall Street or Silicon Valley and so let's start with your piece and let's start with the tech side. Which is I guess. You've been hearing the same things that I've been hearing from venture folk and stuff like that. Yeah it seems like we're on the same page going back to your very generous intro. I want to say that. Not only are you and I not qualified. Has I don't think there's a person alive who is because no one's really seen this. Before the the scale of unemployment the rapid rise of unemployment the complete destruction to travel. I mean this is. I hate the term unprecedented. Because it's so kind of lazy to catch all for like. Oh Gosh but I mean this is unprecedented. We do not know what's GonNa Happen and so I I think speculation is the right game here. We'll do our best to be as as coach unreasonable began. But like we're going to be you know a off of our offer shoulder here we're GONNA be. Maybe like I said to you over. Tm We're going to be in our dorm room getting a little high kind of the we're going to be on that level a little bit but that's the goal so You go first. Give me just. You don't have to name names but give me a broad sense of what you're hearing because you cover SAS a lot and enterprise a lot but also investing in those areas too. Yeah yeah so I part of my job as a as a reporter in the technology in kind financial world is that I talked to a lot of venture capitalists a lot of folks he put the money into the startups that you hear and read about in the media and usually speaking for the last forever years. They've been upbeat. They've been positive their complaints have been you know. My portfolio companies can't hire fast enough. Or You know. Everyone's watching the same channel with ads and now the tone is different than the tone is is much more negative and downbeat and people are generally pretty okay about this like look. This happens every ten years. No big deal. But certainly companies in our portfolio are struggling. And what I'm hearing from them is ruined for a tough patch. People are going to be going through layoffs. The economy is going to go through recession. This is gonNA take some time. It's not gonNA be a v-shaped recovery. As talking point loves point out it's going to be a U. shape recovery at best and and and then I turn around and I look at the stock market and any small news item that could be construed as positive sends the dial by five hundred thousand points. And I'm just sitting here going. What in the hell's going on because you know to me both these people both these groups of people can't be right at the same time and the piece was an attempt to begin to kind of poke it then toured part. Yeah and I WANNA come back a little bit too. We'll say the stock market speculation such as we can do for the second half but The the folks that I know in the venture world are basically. We're we're still at the stage where they're telling their companies like stop hiring hoard cash like batten down the hatches. The people that I know that are the entrepreneurs are like you know basically everyone that I'm talking to in in that world is like What's what's what's the quote from. Last of the Mohicans stay alive whatever occurs. I will find you like so first of all in the SAS space. Like in your we're talking about like like startups in the space or are seeing things. Like fifty and eighty percent drops in new bookings like Gimme some of those anecdotes. Yeah so if you covered this offer base at all or even just really any start about their. That sells a product that recurs that you pay for more than once what? They really care about his churn and they want to keep sure. Absolute minimum turned his. When someone who was paying you no longer is. It's like the worst thing And enterprise software companies tend to have very good churn which they have very little churn and that's why they're so attractive to investors and that's why they've become a huge part of the venture capital world so when we talk about the health of enterprise SAS. We're talking about really the health of a big chunk of the world of venture capital and investors. I've put tons of money into this group of companies and really believe in the business model and the sector focus. Bigger companies are saying that churn is going up and that's impacting. Everyone's ability to grow on the other hand. There are also seeing new bookings new business coming in the door. Go down there seeing. Churn go up. And there's a new book go down which is double effect on growth. He brings growth down very sharply. Because you're losing stock your bucks leaky and is less new stuff coming into the bucket So it's kind of a double whammy and that's why I think a lot of people are doing kind of what you said. They are slamming the door and hiring. They are hoarding cash. And ironically their pullback in spend is going to hurt other companies that are selling stuff to companies like them so there's a there's a a circular firing squad effect to some degree to get really Dorky if listeners want the kind of insider stopped we're seeing stuff like ACV's go down SEV's average annual contract values. You want those to be as high as you can't. It means that when you land a customer they're worth more People are being forced to sell for lower prices and trying to get more discounts. Acb's are also slipping and it's hard to find a positive Positive talking point inside this knicks of stuff. It's a mess in other words. So let's let's do devil's advocate for a second again. You're talking about largely enterprise software. So what if everybody just collectively over the last six weeks or so? Did the thing where they're like all right. Everyone freeze in place and then Well okay maybe it's not so bad which again we'll get to that with the stock market. Maybe that's what's happening. Maybe it's not as bad as we thought and so then things will start to creep back are are we seeing any sort of signs that that might be the case right now or is it. Is it too soon to tell that sorta stuff? I think it's important to note that we're still on the downward slope of I would say the broader Economy End Looking Valley The state of fear is getting worse as opposed to better still and people are talking about Q. Two being pretty terrible so that may happen that kind of sit back and go okay. Maybe things are opening back up. Maybe about to get better again. But I think it's a Q. Three discussion and I'm not predicting that on just my gut instinct and kind of my thoughts dots based on what people are telling me about what to expect for Q. Two And just add context to that. I spoke to a number of these these with partner. Natasha crunch and we're looking at the Boston market a market. That we love and those are saying Q. One won't be as bad as you thought because January February pretty good for these startups choosing to be a hot mess so the people that are putting the money into the firms. Expect the next quarter to be terrible. Maybe you're holds up in Q. Three but those green shoots are more like you know late summer as opposed to early spring. Well speaking of your podcast m correct me. If I'm wrong but at least and again this could be again acute versus q versus q three thing at least as far as I know we haven't seen like actual numbers of investments that. Vc's have been making sees up terribly right like it's it might be down. You would think it would be down but it's not like horribly down yet. A very similar point to what we just went over because V C as you know and everyone listening to the show knows is very laggy. You'll hear about it on a market was closed in December totally standard. So the Q- want numbers are just the rounds that were announced in q? One effectively? And here's the thing even inside those metrics you can see some deterioration in March and I'm just beginning to parse through all the reports are coming out from CBS sites in pitchbook. And everyone else. So I don't have the the firmest view yet I will in about a week and a half but marches bad. The numbers weren't as good as they could have been and people are expecting once again cue to be worse. Vc's are not contrarians they are. They are momentum investors and they don't like to say they don't to be called that but they are and they're they're all listening to other and listen to the The prior carnage stock market somewhat. And I think they're pulling back. Dramatically valuations are going down and new deal getting harder and harder to land because feces are focused more of their portfolio. The new bets. So I think it's it's again acute you. Problem MADE ECONOMY COMEBACK IN Q. Three may get better.

Shot for Shot - One on Ones
"All right before we dive into talking about one on ones. What our one on ones like. How would you describe what a one on one is? And what are they four. Obviously it's a meeting. That's but the point of them would mean I'm kind of curious 'cause I memes and meetings and say oh it could be a medium. I Dunno maybe probably out there right so the meeting. It's a meeting. Yes there's usually two people one on one Also not necessarily with your manager. That's a typical meeting. The one on one with your manager but yeah it could be with another like a colleague another engineer. Maybe a partner that you work closely with third base At the most common thing as meeting with your team leader your manager whatever their title is and it's a it's like a check in hot to kind of for both sides like how are you are you doing. Are there questions for me? How can I help you like? There's kind of A. It's a two way dialogue and it's just a good check in so that when you eventually have. Let's say a performance review at the end of the year. You kind of know where your ad like constantly like. You're always checking in on that. So there's no surprises at the at the end of the year can think one of the main differences. Like what you're saying between that and like another meeting is it's unstructured or at least the ones that I've been in. I don't know that I've ever really been in a one on one with an agenda. As -sarily sort of just like a good time to put time facetime on the calendar with someone that you need to be sort of maintaining some sort of relationship with. I sometimes have had an agenda. Yeah Yeah it's not too bad because sometimes you're just like bullets of like what do i WanNa talk about. Mainly it's been for my own remembering. What am I supposed to talk this person but not with everyone I find? I actually prefer the casual like meeting. What's up stock? Also be the manager with someone who reports to me. I look at it as like a try really hard not always good at it of not been the one talking like I. I want to look at it as a way for the person coming into the meeting is to be able to share what they wanNA talk about. Sometimes that might have to share some seen some changes happening or who knows out or ask a status update which hate doing as well. I really like Stacey said. It's a two way dialogue and kind of what you were mentioning Ryan. Yeah it definitely. Is that kind of dedicated. Time where you wouldn't necessarily feel comfortable going to the hallway and be like Hey WanNa know how I'm performing and stuff I feel. It's a really nice like dedicated time that your manager can well assuming we're talking about manager magic and set aside time for you and really like check in with. You is actually really interesting because I love how you don't have. You don't necessarily have an agenda. Actually my manager kind of says you know this is your time use agenda if I have stuff I will call out what the agenda is for that you know but it's really like this. Time is your time but natural you kind of have to run the meeting yourself so you as in the engineer Yes yes. Yes or his designer or individual contributor. I see what do you put on your agenda who me. I mean not very specific. Right but like in generalities like you're having a problem with stacy stealing my thoughts. Go back at least at least for me. I I've definitely seen the value of one wins a lot more. I used to ruin not know what to use them for the way I've used them is really sharing so things that I feel. I've been doing because I feel sometimes manager doesn't get the visibility of the work that I get to do all the time. He's always following me. That'd be really creepy. But he is so many meetings that sometimes it's Isis share. Some the wins that I have and then also if I'm ever curious like how performing or what it could be doing. Better try to ask for that feedback but usually a two-way dialogue. Always checking in. That's great. I think some team leads. Yeah they have. Maybe a lot managed have a huge number of people who reports them too. So it is I would imagine it would be hard to keep track of all the little wins or things that you feel like you did while on during the week like they may not know so. That's like that's awesome. It is a good opportunity to just like promote yourself. Talk about the things that have gone well but also maybe things that could have gone better. Tm also looking for ways that you can get help from someone were advice on shares. How long you typically meet with someone one on one three to four hours while tens of meeting? No that's a nightmare like home. Goodness and then what's The cadence very very? I must have a small brain. 'cause I can't even like half an hour usually and like sometimes once a week. I've had some teammates at one at once. Like WanNa do that once a week but I almost feel like sometimes it might be too much depending on your team size like if your team lead is at your St Lucie. Do stand ups. If you're saying that Saturday in kind of have an idea like what you're doing maybe once we get too much 'cause you're like are already kind of around everything that's happening but I think every two weeks seems good for me like I like that cadence. That's usually typically what I've scheduled for even minor Especially as my team has gotten larger. It's been like okay. Well let's easier to Kinda space them out but also I want people to not wait for the one on one like if there's something that comes up throw time on the calendar or just grabbed me because that's important as well. I meet with engineers on my team. I meet with my manager. I meet with other managers in the company or people that are partner with and so the cadence can actually differ and even the time like my manager for the longest time we were meeting on our weekly it was kind of a status and for my own personal growth but also like sometimes just talking about team oriented things especially when it was just him in managing the team. That was very valuable is kind of a mix of strategic but yeah it varies. I think sometimes I meet with someone once a month or maybe once a quarter like XIV even had some littering cadences like that. Yeah I guess well I mean it really depends on the person sort of like toe to Ryan's point Like with my manager. It's half hour re two weeks and even sometimes like that doesn't feel quite enough but I mean half hour can go by really quickly especially as in my situation. If you're new to the company that I have a lot to learn about how we operate and also there's a lot of questions about you know just general career stuff but when it comes to sort of anybody else I sort of do it in like an ad hoc way especially with sort of like relationships and I'm building on the team it's really more informal. It's kind of like just enough time to walk across the street and get a coffee. Walk around the block come back and that can that can actually be really productive. Even if it's short he I think it's a good way to like even just doing like that is more casual thing is. You're also you're building trust in getting to know someone in that's like a one on one can be very valuable for that interesting. Mars to going back to your saying like be new to accompany and I think that's another time where I almost like over scheduled When someone's new because there are so many questions and it's like a lot of times like someone will have a legit bullet list of agenda. It's like I have all these questions on my great. Let's go through them so it might even be like once a day or maybe I do schedule an hour or like. There's a couple times or I'll do more especially early on in the first couple of weeks. Yeah definitely have you have any of you like narrow down what I guess you talked about how you like half an hour might be too little like when I when I moved from every note to twitch was interesting because I had a one week half an hour and moved to every two weeks one hour of and I. I personally like the two week cadence more because I feel like there's just a lot more to talk about. Yeah the half an hour ones is like. Oh we just talk last week and I I at least me didn't feel like there's enough meat sometimes to talk about stuff graduate. We don't really go to an hour. That's why when you said three hours I was like Oh goodness Nice though. Setting that time aside even if you don't fill it up. I mean it's exactly reasonable. Hey we don't really talk about like we always over time. Yeah but sometimes it can be really hard to get time with your manager or really with anyone on the team depending on like what's going on or how your team is structured. So that actually sounds pretty nice just to have that hold their. Yeah Yeah and there have been rare times where we have hidden our And that's because there was a lot to talk about the most timely just a little more than half an hour so perfect you know. I've never really too sure everyone's late to the meeting. Every company has the traditional five minutes. You know twenty five minute meeting. And that's that's when it gets really really
