"Ensuring that a clustering result is both meaningful for the data, and useful for some decision that needs to be made. In this episode, mooch taba Anwar returns to the show to share insights from a real world use case involving K means clustering. I'm much the bond war. I am a researcher and a data scientist in the past. I've been associated with Deloitte consulting and more recently I've been working at the consultant in my own capacity with a gambling company based out of Finland. I am also a policy adviser on digital and data to a government entity in the GCC. And as you know, we're doing our season on K means clustering here. I'm curious if you could share with listeners if you have a recollection of when you first encountered this problem. The first time I came across K means was back when I was assigned onto a project where we were required to score employees, vendors and contracts for fraud risk in a banking environment. Now, what we had was data from the likes of source systems such as SAP or echo, the legacy or echo. And so mainly we have the data from a HR procurement and finance. A lot of our data was quantitative, but then we also had a lot of categorical data. And the situation was that the bank did not have an instance of fraud in the past. In fact, this was the first time they had set up fraud department. And we were doing this consulting engagement for them. So the moment when we talk about having no past instance of a fraud or something to look at or compare against or train on, the first thing that comes to our mind is unsupervised learning and talk about unsupervised learning, the first picture in my head is of clustering and within clustering, I would say, probably the most popular algorithm is K means. So this is how I first came across it. So you've got, as you mentioned, the lack of any labels, because there are no historical instances of fraud. Can't really use supervised learning, but is there at least enough data enough training data that we can do something interesting? Yeah, so we did not have any like any path to instances of a fraud. So essentially we did not have any data to train a supervised learning algorithm on. Hence, we were looking for uncivilized learning techniques. We did have a lot of past data on employees, vendors and contracts, we'll be talking about is the bank was one of the largest banks in the country where I was based. So yeah, we had a lot of past data. So I guess the hypothesis is that after you get a clustering result, presumably most of the clusters would be benign, customer behaviors, but maybe rogue accounts or fraudulent accounts would have similar properties and end up clustering into one place and you'd identify some or maybe hotspots or patterns because there's a particular cluster to you've picked out as bad. Is that the general hypothesis? I mean, the general hypothesis, like when going into such a project would be that we would run a clustering algorithm, it would come up with these big clusters, which have very low fraud risk, and some very small anomalous clusters that are farther away, which might need investigation for fraud risk. Now, of course, this idea looks good on the face of it. And it sounds good, but in actual reality how such problems work when it comes to anomaly detection and fraud risk is that, you know, there might not be just an obvious fraud, like an obvious anomaly, like when people are doing fraud. The way they do fraud changes over time and also it's somewhere amongst the good guys cluster that there's that one anomaly that could still put them back in that good guys cluster. So what I'm trying to say here is that this sort of clusters we are looking at are not convex or not those big fatty circles that an algorithm like K means would come up or you're looking for in a fraud risk problem. They are more like concave or other shapes. Weird shapes that come up perhaps even close to the good guys. Because the bad guys want to blend in. That's the sort of clusters you want to investigate and hence why K means did not work for us. It's also worth mentioning that we have a lot of categorical data. So when you have categorical data, you move away from means and you go into more than meteoroids. And in our case, running just the first test of like a K medi or modes was immensely computationally expensive and secondly did not come up with any results that were taken seriously by the business users because in clustering the challenge always is that you don't have something to compare against you know what you have is you have to convince the management that these clusters exist. And they're real and you should believe in them. There's a challenge. Well, there's an interesting dilemma here. I'm going to maybe ask for your advice on for listeners who might find themselves in a similar place. You had a really good instinct. Let's try K means on this problem. Didn't get an obviously useful result with just that alone immediately, looked into medians and K modes. And again there, even though nice idea to try didn't find exactly what you were looking for for your particular problem. In theory you could have kept throwing the kitchen sink at it, right? Well, let's try spectral clustering. Let's do this and that and the other thing. Or maybe at some point we give up and we try something else. How do you make a decision about a fork in the road like that? That's interesting. I mean, I've read quite a bit about the K means clustering and other clustering methods..

Because i we were fine. The guys weren't injured bad. We were just staying on. The guy started having issues. Where like we gotta get the hell out of here. So we get to the cash and then the decision was made. All of alpha company was leaving and charlie company was gonna come in and religious just vehicle burned out.

Fritz Haber: The Best and Worst Chemist in History
"The half of all the crops in the world today are fertilized by. Fertilizers created via the fiber process. With over one hundred million tonnes produced via this method every year. It's hard to stress. Just how important. The fiber process is literally. Our modern world couldn't exist and the lives of billions of people depend on it for taba was awarded the nobel prize in chemistry in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine for his work in this area. Despite the incredible benefits to humanity of the harbor process is nobel prize was controversial. That reason had to do with the other side of fritz harbor. If helping to feed the world was his best side than what he did. Next was his worst despite being born jewish. In what is today. Poland harbor very much identified as german. He converted from judaism to lutheranism primarily to help his academic career when world war one broke out. Harbor enthusiastically supported the german. 'cause he was one of ninety three academics who signed a document called the manifesto of the ninety three here are the first sentences of the manifesto quote as representatives of german science and art we hereby protests to the civilized world against the lies and calamities. A which are enemies are endeavouring to stain the honor of germany in her hard struggle for existence in a struggle that has been forced upon her. The iron mouth of events has proved the untruth of the fictitious german defeats consequently misrepresentation and colony are all the more eagerly at work as heralds of truth. We raise their voices against these claims. Unquote hubbard joined the army and was promoted to the rank of captain. He was then assigned to be the head of the chemistry section of the ministry of war. It was fritz. Harbor who almost singlehandedly was responsible for the use of chemical weapons in world war one.

"I i feel like a fall is better than three but i still wouldn't like to do is fourteen safari on the iphone is like the real obama being there good but now you have the opposite problem where you end up hitting the rely on way too often when you don't want to like the relay button because he said the end of the euro in the taba quite often. The red button is positioned in the center of the screen. And that's where you'll finger. Now she wants a top right so and this. You're looking exactly if you talk to go into the euro food. You end up refreshing the package which is kind of awkward. And then if you and if k the reader i- coney kind of appears goes away and i guess it did that before but there was. It was like a permanent menu at the top. You could get back to and even if you do wanna really the page. The really buttons like really smooth. So it kind of dichotomy way you accidentally hitting really button when you don't want to and then if you hit the button you have to be really precise. Because it is quite small like the effective touch dog era is bigger than the icon. But he's only big an vertically. Somebody's you can hit anywhere on the high of tabah but you have to be like the. The exposition has to be in that very slim. Reluctant and apple has like a design standards. Where minimum touch target sizes for interactions right. And he's like forty four pigs or square and he's like fifty six to twenty picks wide like he's really pushing it so it doesn't feel like a great solution and author controls that i wanted to bring more top level. I thought reload was one of the lesson needed ones on the i find because you could pull to refresh kind of got used to refresh So the fact they brought him back. I guess shows that people wanted it but in terms of utility if it was a bit like it doesn't feel like they've they've not yet Not so sure. The share situations. And now like i shared the conway page loads and haven't clicked and then click share and then click. Someone's name was super frustrating. Whereas now the shares like the top level version if ownership linked to you i just shed an immediate pressure face and it comes up with the message kaposi right whereas before. It was like a three step action to do that so they fit around. Which is fantastic. Now you can. You can click share and then click share because because it was under the dot menu as share. I you know there you can now share which is like a dot and then click share and then do it like that. That's kind of awkward. It's there twice if you have the non compact vote on the iphone twice on the ipad. Is their choice okay. I haven't actually the ipad by seven. But we'll see on on the ipad version when i updated data four and it had the new default which is what safari looked like before i used it for all about fifteen minutes and i think that the hitting point for me was when i had more than say like eight tabs in my browser. It looked like the other way. Anyway because even the tabs three they. Divide the screen in thirds. If you've got twelve and it looks like compact anyway but it's taller and so i already preferred the compact mode in theory and once they came to my ipad. I you know. After that kind of short test i reverted back for the other way to compact and i believe. That's what i'll do the mac as well on the iphone. There's no change there to make except for you can change the floating address the address bar to be constant or to go down to the bottom of screen but that toggle is still unreliable but when it works. Yeah when it works. I of prefer. I do think that youtube i think they've adjusted the that works. Because you're you're scroll tasks. And i make it. Misbehave kept tab bar above the floating bar always instead of ever going below it. So i think that might be their fix..

I think was about nine and we went to the bathroom and she like. Put the shower curtains around me. That threw me into taba water. And when you're on the top of water if you put like a plastic bag over handy put onto water it confines to your hand because at the water reservoir was coming into the shower curtain and i could not move fecal out and like i was yelling for her to help me. I was yelling for her but finally she did drag out with water and then you beat me. But she to all of us. So that wasn't a Is a very common punishment of those water around. Can you imagine going a whole day without looking at a computer or a phone even one time. It's almost like they're part of our identity as humans now and they definitely are great. Tools might computer especially and getting my work done. But what's not great. Is the effect those devices have on our is smartphones tablets. Computers even televisions. They all put out blue light. And that's what puts a lot of strain on our poor eyeballs. I'm sure you know what tired eyes feel like. That's why i am never looking at my computer screen. Unless i'm wearing my felix gray blue light glasses. They make such a difference. Sometimes i worked well into the evening. And when i'm done i know i can still get a good full night's sleep because my glasses have been filtering out the blue light the whole time. I'm working and even though i sit in front of dual twenty seven inch monitors. My eyes are protected because my felix gray glasses filter out fifteen times more blue light than the other glasses..

Tula, the combo USB mic and audio recorder
"Systems. Likely the systems you use today. Learn more at avelar dot com slash talking. So what if. There was a usb mike that also let record at the same time. I think it sounds like a pretty good idea. So does david brown. He's got a new. My call the tula mike It's a two for one. It does double duty and he is talking to us from barcelona spain. David how you doing all right. Tell me why you invented this microphone. Well initially it was. Because of the explosion of content creators people making podcasts and having youtube channels and that type of thing. I wanted to create something that enabled those people to to get good audio easily Even if they are audio professionals and i thought it would be cool if it were a device that could record when you're away from your studio or away from your you know a bedroom studio or whatever. It is out in out in the field that can function as a mobile recorder as well. Okay right now. I could buy a lot of bikes plug directly into the iphone and have pretty good pretty good sound with them Intake the take that with me anywhere or have a usb mic on my desk. So to me after. I've just told you that you would say what well i would say. That the tula the a few things number one. The tula is is a kind of all in one solution. Instead of having one. Mike that plugs into your iphone in another fund that you have on your desk at home it covers all those bases and we like to think that it covers it better than than all of those put together and it looks really nice already. You should tell everybody about two to at a place in russia to our from moscow. What inspired you to To to to name it after this cook you know area of russia. And and and i believe you allow your engineers are in russia. Tell us about the russia connection well. The russia connections is kind of a hot topic. These days. I have a band called brazzaville and were oddly popular in russia. So i've toured extensively in russia for many years and Back in the ninety s in la. I bought a pair of octaves from Guitar center back when they were the first condenser mics. That were sort of affordable and i used him for years and one of the times. When i was on tour. I thank god. I wonder we're up toddlers located. So i looked it up. Sure enough. it's in. This town called tula which i had never heard of before in about a week later i was playing a gig in In cross nar this guy came up to me after the show. And he's like oh man. I'm a big fan. I wonder if you'd ever planned my hometown. Oh we're tula. And i said could you get me a you know a tour of the octave factory. He's like well. I'll try and he had to get special. Fsb permission and all of this military facility long story short. We got the idea to start at first. We were going to partner with taba to make like a kind of high end version of what they do. But in the end that was way too complicated and we ended up just founding our own microphone company which became soyuz. So let's back up a little bit. You're used to live in los angeles. Yes you live. You live in barcelona now okay. And you make microphones in russia to. How does that all get. How put that all together for me. I have a lot of airline miles. Well i grew up in la like right actually in la unlike most people who tell you they grew up in la grew up. Like basically in downtown wilshire and fairfax even more. like i. Like the koreatown. You know hoover in third and around there but i lived there for for most of my life and then about seventeen years ago. I just had this idea to move to barcelona just mostly because it just seemed like a good idea and It was a great idea as it turns out. I've never regretted it okay. So you're living barcelona and you fly on air flow aeroflot's to moscow Three times a week or three times a month or sadly not this year but last year. How often were you going all. I would go at least once a month. I would say and I know moscow really. Well i love russia immensely. It's beautiful country. With incredible people gets a really bad rap. I mean they're and bad people like anywhere but good luck with the tula. Mike which will be out in january one ninety nine.

"Someone that I like. Oh, deal would have been, but then I wouldn't have not won the stage. But the deal in the lime is good, but I ordered, then just put more Dylan it probably another recipe that we posted is kind of one for kids, because you know if you're not doing Halloween And I know a lot of people are doing movie nights and butt like you kind of need to do something a little special for the kids, and it's an apple cider slushy. So you just freeze apple cider and then you Ah, serve it with cinnamon, a little lemon juice so something where the kids can feel like, I don't know. Do you think it's weird to serve kids fake cocktails? Because I've done this my whole life. So we give them like the Taba Ju said Thanksgiving. Yeah, I've done the whole thing. I think it's actually better because it doesn't mean it doesn't make it like this sort of magical thing that only adults can have. It sort of gives it a little bit more normalcy, which then I feel like is less you know, so attractive, Like when you're rebelling and say, Oh, I don't know. No, I think that the European way of drinking along with your kids is always the buzz Here is a sparkling ginger sangria. And it looks kind of Halloween E because it looks a little bit darker. So you use black or red seedless grapes and you muddle those was sugar and grated ginger and then the sugar you uses a brown sugar. And then you serve it with per seco. So it kind of just looks a little dark and stormy in there. It's got the ginger and the black. Yeah, it's pretty, and it's definitely very pretty cocktail. Um so, yeah. So broken peanut butter cups does not look good to me. Drunken peanut butter cops? Yeah, Sue that 10 God, it's like It's basically vodka infused with races piece that sounds too sorry, chattering, corny and and then, of course, it is a peanut butter rimmed glass, which is, you know the kiss of death for me. Don't make a sticky rim. Here's Ah, Here's one that is interesting. A black charcoal lemonade. Yeah, that does look good. So you use sugar water and activated black charcoal. Yeah, I'm going to not use charcoal in my drink. But here's what I am in a deal. Why couldn't you do this with black jelly beans? You totally could. And it would have been this flavor I have, and I I don't come drinking. It is different than eating it to me is like having a cocktail with it is just too much. That's kind of a funny one. Yeah, Um, do you like this Apricot bourbon brew That looks delicious. How would you do that one That one is saying they're making Halloween E by painting an orange peel of black jails, And that's too much. I'm not going to do that. But I would. This one does nice justice. Bourbon with apricot juice, which is, you know, one of those things like when you're looking for something A little different looks kind of like a pumpkin. Yeah, but it's not pumpkin juice. That still sounds delicious. And here is one that is a blood orange blackberry rum punch. Yeah, that's pretty. That sounds really good to blood orange juice. BlackBerry soda. Ah, Izzy BlackBerry soda, a couple rum, lime juice, blackberries, blood orange garnish, and then they shook it up and served it in a wine glass, But they served it with pans ease purple pansy Onatopp, which was real cute. Have you seen those panties in the grocery store that you can buy? I mean, always. Yeah. Yeah, like thereby where the spices would be. Excuse me, not Spicer's. So that's always fun to just do something a little bit special. You know, we're just really looking for specialness in whatever way we can. It can be just something super small. But just since we have the time, some of us let's just Do something a little fun. My big Halloween walk around was always or as you'd like to come in the walk tail when we should call them walk around. Walk, Tio. We always you know, we're walking. You know, Whenever the kids would go, we'd have our have the gorilla suit on to keep warm. And then you know, like the just the thermostat stuff. And for me, it was always just spiked cider, Bourbon Spec cider..
Pike's Peak: The Complete History of the World's Highest Hill Climb
"Pike's peak is a giant among giants. It's the highest mountain in the front range of the rocky mountains. It is formed from billion-euro old granite. That's right. Billion with a B. and was first named by the native people who lived in shadow the called the mountain. Taba meaning son and they were the Tableau Watch meaning people of San Mountain. In eighteen o six, the mountain was quote unquote discovered. By American explorer lieutenant, Zevulon Yuan Pipe. These God I sounds like an alien spaceship guy. On. Doesn't look as cool as his name suggests I'm just GonNa tell you right now he was sent by Thomas Jefferson on a mission to explore the West and upon seeing the Mountain Zevulun apparently swore the mountain would never be conquered by man cars didn't exist yet, but it's safe to assume pike would have included them in his assessment as well. Given the chance it only took fourteen years. To prove old Zebulon Pike. Wrong. The mountain was first scaled by a European in eighteen twenty when Edwin James, a botanist and explorer successfully reached the summit collecting flowers all the way up quote the most notable day of the expedition for botanical collecting. Now, I don't WanNa give all the credit to Edwin. James although it sounds like he had a great time, I'm sure that one of the Taboada probably. Did it before him yeah. One hundred percent. Yeah attaboy watch like a a wildfire up their boot who was just like I'm GonNa Climb that today flowers. We're lovely but it was a Shinier commodity that attracted the first wave of settlers to pikes. Peak Pike's peak or bust was a common slogan of the Colorado Gold Rush of the eighteen fifties although is more of a marketing slogan. Do the prominence of the mountain gold wasn't discovered near pikes peak until later in eighteen ninety three, it won't be the first time that the mountain inspired the imaginations of those who climbed it in that same year after reaching a summit of the mountain and taking in the view Katharine Lee Bates wrote the Song America the beautiful. Describing Purple Mountain Majesties above the enameled plane over the years the mountain was commonly referred to as Pike's highest peak before finally being simplified just to pikes peak the next notable American to shape the fate of the mountain was Spencer Penrose, and he also might have been the one to introduce cars. Penrose had a name that sound like the bad guy in a murder mystery but he also had a job that would fit right into the genre. He was a mining speculator of the American West just like a murder mystery penrose had a history that could make you think you is both a suspect and a savior he graduated from Harvard but at the bottom of his class. His father and brothers were doctors and lawyers he decided to travel out west and try to make a name for himself at first he failed before getting a tip about some land near Cripple Creek that made him millions of dollars, and that's million dollars like in the movie this guy is played by Walton Geoghegan's. For sure. That's love that whilst. Yeah. And that's millions of dollars in eighteen hundreds money, which is like a lot today billions today. I Love Walton Gardens he's so. I feel like if I went to Harvard I'd WanNa, graduate the bottom of my class. Look I'm I'm the best on the rowing team but. Not great at socio economics I mean I went to. Harvard. So I'm pretty good at stuff but like I partied penrose settled. Colorado. Springs. The closest town to pikes peak was met a woman named Julie Villiers McMillan although. Penrose was by then in his forty s, he had sworn to stay a rich entrepreneurial bachelor but Macmillan proved to be grimes to his Elon Musk and the two got hitched in traveled to Europe for a lavish honeymoon staying at beautiful resorts around Europe inspired penrose to murder his wife what now? In fact, the inspiration was to open his own motel modeled after the places he had stayed specifically on the Mediterranean coast. This became the Broadmoor hotel opened in nineteen eighteen at the cost of three million, nineteen eighteen dollars translating to scrooge mcduck. Gold Coin Swing Pool amount of money in today's money. The Broadmoor was and is a seven hundred, seventy nine room Italian renaissance style palace with eighteen restaurants a golf club with three courses including one designed by Arnold. Palmer himself an automotive museum, the contents of which will soon arrive at this thing is like massive. It looks awesome. Yeah. I WanNa go to the odd more. Yeah. Let's do it. How do you feel? Seven hundred rooms every night. That's nuts penrose was no fool. He knew he knew that to attract people to the hotel you needed to do things great reviews on tripadvisor, dot com and promotional stunts. He set out to work on an ambitious project as he built the hotel, it was a two hundred, eighty, three, thousand, dollar gravel and dirt road to the fourteen thousand, one, hundred, fifteen foot summit of pikes peak with the idea of promoting tourism to the area and indirectly his own hotel.

"Side, The Kevin Grady checked into tail back there and get out to the 33 for a pick up of three. They just tried to fool them with that quick hitter in the inside handle, tried to spread them out a little bit and think in Michigan with the long yardage is going to go back and pass and get a big pass, rush up field and sneak Kevin Grady in there behind it, But instead, Penn State was ready. Decent gain on the play, but still holding call to come back from that leased. It happened on an early down, so you got three down to try to make it up. Like heart. And will Paul both in the game. Paul is on a wing right after the tried another left. Carl Taba split left a band out to the right now Paul Sports out to the left. There is heading to throw under pressure back there runs up the middle. He'll be sacked back on the 31 for a loss of two by Tomba, Holly and that'll be his big 10 leading six sack of the year. You must protect the quarterback better than that. That did not have Much timeto get anything going in there. Just one of those things where the offensive line has gotta be wary of games that Penn State will play up front that time Little zone blitz. Look, you dont Holly actually didn't rush him that time. Who's got accident came through and flushed any out of the pocket, and Holly was waiting for him to get the sack there down for Michigan, 19 to go from their own 31.

Rocky Road with Science Diction
"Both Fenton's and dryers have pretty straightforward stories for how they invented rocky road in dryers version. It was William Dryer himself who one day in nineteen twenty nine did to make an ice cream with nuts chocolate and marshmallows but at the time, marshmallows did not yet come in small versions that came in cheats. So he took his wife's picking shears and cut the marshmallows into four pieces and then stuffed in the ice cream and Taba rocky road was born dryer says the name was meant to quote give folks something to smile about in the face of the Great Depression. According to Fenton's it was a candy maker on staff who came up with it story goes one day. He was making a candy bar with you guessed it nuts chocolate and marshmallows, and he was like you know what would be a great idea is if I put this candy bar in the ice cream and he did it and it was hit via end, the rest is history for over two years. Elissa tried to find out who's story was true. She turned up alleged confession a denial of that confession just a whole lot of ice cream fueled drama more on that from Elissa later because it turns out that people have a lot of feelings about rocky road. Would Weird Al do attribute to Vanilla. Vanilla is the definition of boring and it has a boring name to go with it. But Rocky Road Sounds Fun playful even somehow delicious which it shouldn't it is a road with rocks in it But when it comes to food names, it's not just what the word means. It's how it sounds. It's something that linguists and food marketing types seem to understand very well. At my little grocery store here in San. Francisco. In my little neighbourhood of Brunel Heights Dandruff ski is a linguist. He wrote a book called the language of food. And I was just scanning the cracker aisle and I noticed that every single cracker name had an in it and I was like something's going on here. So I started really from the cracker aside and I thought well, what's the opposite of crackers but that would be ice cream Dan decided to run a little experiment he went online downloaded eighty-one ice cream flavors from brands like Ben and Jerry's haagen-dazs. Then he went to a diet website downloaded six hundred cracker brand names and he noticed a pattern it had to do with the vowels I just counted how many of these ice creams versus crackers which one had more front vowels like e or Which one had more back vowels like you're all and there was a striking difference. Alright. So Front vowels the E in cheese the IT. Feel higher tongue moves. When you make those sounds, you're kind of lifting at toward the front of your mouth. Cheese. Now, say chocolate Mousse. Those words are full of back. AL's pay attention to your tongue again, chocolate. Mousse. This time it's hold more towards the back. Then discovered that the cracker names had nearly all front vowels. Vs and is. So. That's your cheeses and wheat thins and Krispy triscuit crisps chicken in a biscuit. But the ice creams that's back vowels at your your Jamaica Almond Fudge chocolate, your Caramel, your cookie dough, your coconut, and your rocky road. So

I WOULD WANNA punitive while this sham. and Taba. Is. made the exact same way that champagnes. Now, it's five, six, hundred miles farther south on the Mediterranean Ocean and. You know in Champagnes on the north side of the Burgundy area up in northern France. They're not the same growing regions, but they do make wine the same way. And they actually went out of their way to get new are. So, there is a little bit of a comparison because this actually As you know. Like, for Sakho is in made a second fermentation, that's the The bubbles come in. In large pressurize that and and by large I mean. Pressurize that. And can go anywhere from a couple of weeks a couple of months pressure. After the after the you know it's up to sugar and Co two comes out.

Amy and Tavis Guild How to make large portrait photography sales from auctions
"I mean Tabas Welcome. Thanks for having us. Hello. Look there I the name of your town Roy Euchema. It's Yakima. So we have a lot of Indian native American names here. So we China and. Yakima we know. We know it's okay. We'll look talking about the the living in the you work from. Can you give us an idea of the population and the clients that you'll servicing? Yes. So calculation here is I guess our county is around two hundred thousand or so. But really like our city is around one, hundred thousand. So we're a farm town. So we produced seventy percent of the world tops, and so if you drink a beer, the odds that we grew here in Yakima are incredibly high and we also produce a large or should have the apples, peaches, cherries hairs were the fruit Bolsa. We're surrounded by farms and you come out here is that way you'll clients coming from from that family and community? Yeah. A lot of the farm owners, and of course, you know that's going to spur on other business in the area and so yeah, like our clientele. So our suit is a good pair of jeans. In the Collared Button. Up, shirts. If. You get fancy you can tuck your shirt in. If you WANNA, get really fancy you can just add like a blue blazer and anything beyond that is the super formal event that only happens once a year. And as obviously you guys both working the business do you have totally separate roles or overlap quite a bit? Yeah I would say we have pretty separate roles. Well, it all started when we started photographing weddings together and actually be very had kids. We've been married for twelve years before we had kids we did everything together. We sat side by side on our computers and photograph together did it all together but now with the kids, it's like I'm on duty in the office and I do a lot of the correspondence, the photo editing, the marketing things like that tavist as most of the photographing and all of the in person sales after and going to the clients home and inside the wall art so. Nowadays we actually do way more by ourselves the we do together but. is to be altogether your are you both actually shooting still? and. Then you both go out to weddings together would go to the same family portal's Tavistock one and I mean, you take another It just depends like this past Saturday, we had two separate events. So I went to one and tavist went to another with a an associate char and then family sessions he'll just go himself or take Khloe, our associate, and then every once in a while I'll get a babysitter and we'll both do the same wedding. It's really the kids that have changed the way the business runs yet, which is normal for every couple. Yeah, it's season and once they're grown and and shifting into the gears, they're going to be doing in life. I'm sure will spring back and. More together. Show and did I get that raw in the charter that it started with the wedding photography business and then you move into portraiture It did and you know the interesting thing is this we actually started as A. Company, and so it was back. When if you said, you did HD video it was like a marketing thing like it was like Oh you do hd like it was kind of like you offer the digital. Gets US important as that, and so we started with that and then quickly found every client wanted photography and we're like, okay, it's the same. We're doing all the manual settings on the video. Let's get into the tire free still world up, and so we quickly went full till photography and then soon thereafter drop the video side of things just because the workflow was difficult for our team size and we're like, Hey, let's just focus more on the photography inside and kind of fell into our laps that we even did. Weddings in the first place because we are both in college at the time and I was studying to be a teacher and I thought well in the summer like photographs a few weddings and then Soviet teacher year round. But by the end of our college career, we were doing late twenty five to fifty weddings a year twenty five was our first year and then fifty or next like, okay. Let's switch gears. Let's just do this full-time. So it was never like our lifelong plan to be wedding photographers it just kinda happened. But it's been a lot of fun. So then why the transition into portraiture. Well you know it's so interesting because for those of you that are wedding photographers out there, you'll know exactly what I'm about to say is is when you're at these events, it's kind of a commercial for yourself as an artist as a porsche artist because you're photographing families in in after that couple that you photograph, they then begin to start a family. So the longer you're in the industry. It really has a natural velopment to all of these people that you're just kind of their household photographer. You're a part of the family and your role is the artist right and we just start at the wedding side, and then as they begin to have kids and stuff like that, we do the newborn and then the family stuff, and then of course, you begin to be known for that also. Of course photographs, people, you didn't do their wedding, but ultimately, we've always kind of done family photography alongside weddings. More focused on weddings. But just recently, we decided to create a brand around that in a really helps with clear marketing messaging and all that stuff and being able to run promotions and not have it be conflicting with our you know bride and grooms, and you know the marketing pumping out for the wedding size thing. So that's why we split the brains. We didn't necessarily just start doing that we just made it super clear that we do that.

Can land expropriation help heal South Africa?
"In addressing inequality quality it seems a straightforward indeed elegant policy. Take stuff off people who have a lot of it and give it to people who don't have any of it however anybody certainly any government proposing such a measure would do well to heed the immortal wisdom of H L Mencken who wants observed that there is is always a well known solution to every human problem needs plausible and wrong nevertheless the idea of land expropriation has returned to the public discourse in South Africa a panel assembled by President Cyril Ramaphosa to look into the idea has returned a proposal recommending in limited circumstances the seizure of land without compensating the owners. We should no longer be afraid of this process of having to change the land ownership architecture in our country. It is here and it is here to stay. It is going to happen land. Land ownership has been a persistent issue in post-apartheid South Africa and not without reason a quarter of a century after the racist monstrosity of apartheid was formerly dismantled white South Africans who comprise roughly nine percent of the population still own seventy two percent of the farmland possessed possessed by individuals as an illustration of the lingering effects of systemic injustice. It's hard to beat this by lament is rare opportunity unity to redress on this past wrongs to allow the natives who have lost so much to reclaim the dignity. <MUSIC> BIC by kitching our land back no law shall. We be treated as life in our own land. Never Ramaphosa's panel has proposed seizing land which is held for speculative purposes land which is occupied and worked by tenants and land and and that has has been abandoned it has also suggested taking inner city buildings owned by absentee landlords for obvious understandable reasons these these measures will go over well with a significant proportion of South African voters especially those who have lately been tempted away from President Obama poses his African National Congress now very much the Party of South Africa's establishment and towards the radical firebreathers of the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters Party not who nearly doubled the parliamentary presence in last May's election the F. F. led by Julius Malima who might be charitably described as uncompromising uncompromising in his general approach favors wholesale nationalization of South Africa's land. You'll say I thought what colonialism we wanted decolonisation yet yourself party or Lord Boorda's in Africa what is being proposed by President Obama poses panel is significantly less than that but it is nevertheless significant as it stands under section twenty five of South Africa's Constitution and the government may expropriate land but is required to cough up just and equitable compensation there has long been chat about amending this his clothes and or concocting some legal argument that in certain circumstances just and equitable compensation might amount to nothing they is also a growing body of opinion in our country that the constitution as it stands does not impede. beat expropriation of land without compensation that expropriation will be popular in some electorally important demographics is beyond doubt and that is very usually the clinching argument in matters of politics. Although some polling in South Africa suggests widespread unease with the idea of no compensation factor less often subject to rigorous scrutiny is whether or not a given see see policy will actually work and where expropriation nation of land is concerned. The are some discouraging precedents and if you WANNA the inroad of what you want to do today most infamously in the early years of the twenty th century Zimbabwe's then President Robert Mugabe ordered the seizure of white-owned farms and they're transferred to black ownership good have looked at what happened in Zimbabwe. Remember signor Robert Mugabe went down the same road was he also did in so doing was effectively <unk> demolish. Zimbabwe's agricultural infrastructure femme production plummeted by two thirds in less than a decade and Zimbabwe's economy collapsed alongside to the point where the country had to abandon its hyper inflation stricken currency in two thousand nine. Zimbabwe issued a one hundred trillion dollar banknote note which wouldn't buy a phosphate. They're actually doing the opposite non Zimbabwe. 'cause they realize the folly of their ways. South Africa is not Zimbabwe's and Cyril Ramaphosa Hosa is not Robert Mugabe but the <hes> some similarities many years after the end of white minority rule things remain extremely tough for many among long South Africa's black majority the unemployment rate in South Africa is a staggering scandalous twenty seven point six percent even higher among youth who. Who are increasingly drawn to the E. F F and South Africa is as Zimbabwe was an apparently attornal one party Democracy Ramaphosa a post has big problems and the means always tempting of making big gestures in response. If this Kevin was serious about restitution and redistribution we would speed up the hundreds of thousands of land claims that tremaine unprocessed in South Africa that is what it serious party would do if it was kid about land performer land redistribution the trouble is that property rights matter they are along with free and fair elections a free press judicial independence and the rule of law one of the crucial differences between functional society and a shambles property rights are also in this specific instance crucial to the foreign investment which South Africa urgently requires. Nobody is going to buy something if they're not sure they will be allowed to keep it and in fact we have said to those who are investing in no country that they shouldn't have no fear that the land property is going to be expropriated while the proposals of the presidential panel panel commendably constrained they will prompt concerns about these slipperiness of this particular slope they are of the ways to redress economic imbalance and historical injustice. The President Ramaphosa will be wearily aware that they are often more complex and long term than understandably impatient poor people would prefer he could of course set a personal example his own farm.

Oh, I think so immediately, they would say that was a very solid Irish accent. Yeah. Yeah. And prove it comply. Donna Shalala with me. What? Yeah. He's the, the coverage of this is. So I mean they they just it's all about like the balloon. There's a balloon of. I love the fact that that balloon was stabbed. I love the fact that person came up to it was, like he's the greatest president ever and then stabbed it ripped a hole in it. And so it deflated. Yeah. It's actually interesting because, you know, usually Republican presidents are not at all popular anywhere. Overseas and Trump is not at all popular in London. But in the country, generally speaking, he is a lot of support. I mean, because remember half of this country voted for Brexit, and basically every world leader said they were terrible except Donald Trump. Yeah. No, he's, he's with the people. He's just I mean it's just like Ronald Reagan. This is same thing, the way it was.

"And said, ten fours long as I myself have needed the, the mental escape of those dream scenarios of, you know, maybe it'll go into remission Norman I needed I needed to cling to that for a moment there. And I wouldn't want to discourage anyone from. That even if it even if it is clean, because I think I think it's part of the process and, and for some it will lurk. So, you know it's not even a pipe dream, and for some that really genuinely will work. So keep that option on the table for as long as it feels good for you to have it on the table. Yeah. Yeah. And that's the key part. Does it make you excited to think about? Or does it make you feel dread to? Yes. Yes, exactly. I can can you relax into the picture because it looks good, or, or is it something that feels very oh, if all of these ideal circumstances, come together them. Maybe somehow I can squeeze a little bit of something out of that. And that was that's, that's what it was like for me. And yeah, so. Yeah. I'm genuinely on that side. My, my, my sister got got pregnant a few years back in an I considered myself, you know, that, that would be the ultimate test for me, because of you only close my sister allowed to like, you know, and I thought you know what? This is good test, because if this is if there's any lingering grief or emotion around, that I, I'm going to feel it, and I had, none of that. I could I could genuinely be happy for her, and it was not. It was not their sweet for me at all. So that felt like like a crutch ration- of sorts like okay and really done with this. So that's good. I made the right choice for me. Yeah, yeah. And we tried a babysitting for a little while that once a week on a Monday, might my husband is always home on Monday. And we would babysit for the whole day, and we tried that for few months, and I, I had to give that up too, because it was just not doable. I was so exhausted. And I needed to cancel other things. And I needed my husband to, to, to pick up the slack, and I'd find myself, you know, melting down or or yelling at the dogs later or just completely so utterly exhausted that I just I just couldn't do that. And that, that wasn't that was another hard one for me, because I thought you know what I thought that I could at least glimpse a little bit of what it was like. And it was exhilarating to walk a pram across a on the street. And just I felt like the, you know, I felt Taba world debt day, you know, you're, you're walking baby. And it's, it's not yours. But I didn't I didn't really care about that. Because I felt really happy about just getting a taste of it. You know and, and it was really. And I'm still happy. We did that because we did get a taste of it. And we now if we're talking to friends who have kids, we feel like we can understand a little bit what they're coming from, because we, we face a little bit of what it was like. And how difficult it can be to get them sleep or get them to feed in how nice it is when they sleep on your shoulder, and we got to experience that's that's really great. And that was an invaluable experience that will always treasure. We're still very close to my little niece and she's she's four now. So she's asked. But, but I did I did melt the day we decided we had to. Give that to. I thought come on where does the line in, you know, you just you really wanted to I really wanted to, to hang onto that, but I knew that it wasn't. Yeah. And you got so but, but again I'm really happy. We get that now. And now we, we see from time to time and sometimes we hang out with her current our and then we're also genuinely glad that she's going. Quiet. Yeah, that's fair you, so you have the blessings of that, you know. So it's, it's again, it's how you how you look at it. You can you can stay in the in the in the pain of, of, of not having that, but you can also just refocus on, on, on the joys of having a connection with the little kid that you still get to be around and play with, and all of the troubles go to mom and dad's. So we just get the fun part. There's, there's that, too, that is the good part about being an aunt or an uncle definitely. Yes. A little differently settled for being favorite aunt. Yep. Yes, I get that. And that's a good. I think like follow up experience, just for you to have to really be able to know. Okay. So then what I was also wondering, as a bit of a wrap up unless there's anything else in your mind, but just what you said you are you still notice progress? You feel like you still are improving. So what are you up to these days like fifteen years after recovery, which is at this point, like a significant portion of your life. What? What works for you? I guess I'm kind of thinking about let me explain this more one thing that people talk about a lot is like it's hard to start stop working. And if you decide not to have a family, there's all of these things that maybe when you're younger, you think will be what is important about your life like when you're eighteen or Twenty-one, and you're like, I'm going to have a career, or I'm going to have a family or both. Yeah. Or whatever. And one of the things when that isn't where your life is going to be more is that you have to find a new. Yep. Yep. Purpose. You'd I guess. Yes. That sounds really serious office, doesn't it? And I don't really like the word purpose because it makes me L A B in filled with responsibility in something you or. It doesn't have to be that. I think what wording what we're what we're all wanting with, with that whole purpose idea is, is you want fulfillment. I think that's what that's what you want that purpose for, and that's what you enjoy your job for because while letting gulps job was easy. What is harder is as how a job connects you to the world? And how you know, sometimes you have the most meaningful only the most regular frequent conversations with the people you work with, because they don't know about you, and it's, it's a way to get out of the house, a little bit and be around people. And he also gives you a lot of perspective because you. You work with a lot of wide range of people that you wouldn't necessarily be friends with, but still have to work with, and that gives you a kind of perspective. But not having all of that. You have to shape that, and I think finding that fulfillment has been a challenge, because I tend to want to make it a little too big a really ambitious, and I wanted I tried to start on my business businesses and things like that. And I am very crafty percents. So I ain't I create stuff at night. So I tried to launch that into it into a business that didn't work at the time. But that was also because I was a little too. Intense in professional about it. And now I think I'm on the verge of launching another ones, but again slower this. And leaning in and just knowing that I can just gradually work, my way up and learning to lean into this notion of taking turtle steps, I really liked that. It's a concept that I. Came across from Martha Beck, and she calls, a turtle step is a, the smallest step that you can think of and then cut in the half. So it's not even because even baby steps we tend to if we're thinking a baby steps, we, we still make me tend to make them a little too big, and we can't do them all the time. And turtle steps are designed to to be so small. You can you can barely not do them. Yes, you know, I started just a few months ago by just going up to my art spice and just sitting in that chair just considering what I might do next. So it's basically just minute of sitting in the chair. And if you're I mean, you can almost not do that on, even on your worst day, you can do that. And they don't build some that, so then, then it's like okay every day, I'm going to go up and I'm going to draw want shake or something. And then you do that or mixed one color of paint in then because you're you get used to that you build a habit around that. And then it becomes easier to do something for five minutes. And then all of a sudden, you're you're painting every day for five minutes. So those kinds of things work. But I'm with those sorta steps I'm kind of the that's the, the latest process amid two. So that, that really works and the mindset, shifting works works works a lot. So even when sometimes. When I feel wary about doing something I think, oh, jeez, are really, I don't feel up to it. But I know that if I do it, I'm going to feel more fulfilled than if I watch TV on the couch again because there's nothing wrong with that. And I really enjoy my favorite shows. I get a really good kick out of just watching them and I have the luxury to enjoy them. And that's also good frame of mind to have because it is a luxury. But to, to sometimes just think to myself pile, help pleasant it would be to, to have something done to just, you know to, to order some supplies, online, or to, to just do some small activity into just think about having done it and think about how, how fulfilling it will feel to, to have done it. And to have that intention of you know what I can and there's I can word again, but I can actually sit behind the computer and I can actually focused on this one simple task for a few minutes. And then I will have something that I can cross off my to do list. And I think I can be very fulfilling way to, to look at it and to coax yourself into a little more activity, if you want to expand that, also, I think, what really helps me is to make sure that I get a sum for exercise. Perfectly outside, so I have I have a dog, and I recently, we have gotten the second one which other another another breakthrough for me because that was that was a big step because we've had two dogs before, but it was really attempts because one dog going this way and the other Degar going that way. And you're having the tangle with the leashes and everything. And so that used to be really exhausting. And now I find that it's, it's, it's almost effortless to walk too, so that, you know, to a healthy person that doesn't seem like a big leap to me that felt like such major progress. That's that's really good. And now, so now I almost every day, I walk both dogs to the park in the let them off leash, and, you know, that's that's really big because, you know, two dogs can run off in two different directions and I'm not doing too with. Spreading my focus that, that's the tends to be, you know, multitasking not my not my strong suit..

"So is that just like start the rehab and now he's still rehabbing with the team are they clearing him someone else. Clearing, him wise, and he's still in L A, if he's not cleared for basketball activity, yet shocking laid off something with Markelle folds doesn't make any sense Bontemps reported that Dwayne deadman is someone that the Sixers have interest in and but the other issue there is that match out not necessarily for him because they do a scholar there. But the Sixers just don't have the matching salary ran into this issue in the trade deadline as well. And they would probably have to trade Marco Foltz, but buttons reporting something that I think we've heard a number of times that there's really certainly not any kind of decent first round pick available for Marquel? What else we got? We can go from there to the Utah Jazz who are still missing a series of players. They got Ricky Rubio back, which is great. But Dante Exum will not be back until after the Australia's not even going to be reevaluated until I think during the all star break, probably similar timing with NATO's has grown issue and Taba. Who has a hamstring issue? Those guys not as specific timeline yet. But we're going through that. And they got absolutely worked by Dame CJ and the Portland trailblazers in the last game of the night on Wednesday for Washington. Dwight Howard is out at least through the all star break who's supposed to be two to three months that we're coming up in the two month. Mark right now with that lumbar back issue that he had the could still use one more big. I mean on me, he me, you know, Howard. It would at least be better than him. But you would imagine Thomas. Bryant would continue to start Dhamar Droese missed three straight with knee soreness. But he was supposed to return on Thursday after that horrific. Spurs win with Rudy gay hitting a the big jumper. Although Gregg Popovich said the sun's deserved to win that one of the us. Probably right. I mean, the the Spurs definitely kicked the ball all over the gym late in that one. And then in okay, see, Billy Donovan was asked about this. He said I can't provide really any kind of an update on under Roberson. So this is kind of starting to feel with all the setbacks that he's had like, it's just. It's gonna be like a season ender for Andrea. And I mean, given the amount of time that he's missed in the severity of his injuries. You would think if he's not backed by early March it's gonna be kinda hard for him to get up to the level of just playing playoff basketball it with the emergency. Terrence Ferguson lately will see whether that keeps up, of course, maybe it's less of a concern than it would have been. But Ferguson did miss the game against Orlando with a back injury. And so did Stephen Adams who I mean almost never misses a game. He had an ankle injury. Must have really been injured unclear whether those guys will return on Friday, and probably one of the thing. We didn't talk about what the Lakers Lonzo as put out there that he doesn't want to end up in New Orleans. He wants to get routed to New York or Chicago, while New York won't be taking on his salary. Sorry, unless they can get off some and. I mean, it'd be nice if the bulls could get him he's probably better than Chris done. But I mean, I don't know that he has any power as guy on the second year of his rookie contract. But I mean, certainly getting sent to New Orleans would be a disaster for lavar ball, but you know, Lonzo there's even if he reaches his potential, it seems pretty clear to me that he's never going to be good enough to be like selling all these shoes or like, you know, his own brand or any any of that stuff. So he probably should've taken the money from from the shoe companies had offered it to him when he was a rookie. That said it is also unusual to see a player who is under contract. Get get it reported where they wanna go because that generally just doesn't matter. He'll like where where you we don't get reporting on. Oh, Brandon Ingram wants to go play somewhere else. But because they're still the cachet of the balls that still gets out there..

"But the one thing that I saw this week when I look at you know, kind of what's missing that last piece that really kind of complete them as Tato is really important to what they need and want to do this year. And they don't have a guy really that can do. The job Ingles is way overshooting is defensive profile had of the prospect. You know, and really is so good and crawler can. Defend at the three or the four for twenty eight to thirty two minutes a game and they play so well defensively as what you go look at the on off, and you then you look at where their gaps of their best. If it's a play they Thomas back healthy. I don't know that who'd ever be of to the starting lineup. I wouldn't be shocked if he was sort of to certain to starting lineup. We'll you know, we'll see what has to do that. But for me, you know, I don't I don't want to relitigate Mitchell and go bare everybody everybody knows how good they are there. Jay Crowder is proving his worth to the roster as well and everyone sees favors works in some matchups in some. He does it work. XM candy stay healthy and candy have had extended stretch of play. Those are all question marks. But for me them getting top host of healthy is like sort of topping off the this system that will absolutely just be a beast defensively. Nobody's talking about tobbaco seems like. Around the team if you play good we doesn't play. Okay. No. It's not okay. They need tobbaco in their rotation to be the best form of themselves and stood out to me when I watch watch someplace week. Yeah. I mean, I I agree at the top of Taba was almost like one of those where it almost doesn't show up directly in the numbers because team really kind of executes defensively, but he's one of those guys that when he's in an lines everyone matchups up correctly takes the tough assignment Crowder can take tough assignments. But he's really more of a four. But he could definitely definitely can lock down on the wing. But yeah, he's he's kinda like we used the ballpoint analogy. Sometimes when you have that one reliever everyone else is in the right role. When he's not there, then everything's just off like half step or something like that. So he's definitely in in every time Taba goes to a new team you here. He's disgraced if a supplier that doesn't do anything on offense, and you watch a player and you're like. Oh, he could actually play on office. He can make some tough shots you shooting. Forty five forty six percent from the three point line this year. I mean, not a high volume, but when it's open he knocks down, you know, if what I watched this this in January as well as they've really gotten back again, like we're talking earlier about spicing the floor trusting one another in really being willing to shoot the ball there. I think Hello earlier. I think during January they're shooting ten more three pointers that game than their opponent. And they're outscoring their opponent just shy of ten points per game at the three point line. So their ability to run players off, the three point line, and defend the basket. Of course, we did go bears. A big part of that. Helps them tremendously defensively an office. Simply it's the ball movement team. Play the spacing they play with tremendous tremendous spacing offensively when the trust kind of breaks down when Donna and tries to do a little bit too much. It kind of really just kind of throws off the rhythm. Offensively players aren't getting touches or not gonna shoot as well. When trust is down just really kind of it's hard to be an efficient team offensively. So when I see them play, and I was at the game in Philadelphia earlier this year when Donald took will was thirty five shots or something like that. And that is not Utah Jazz basketball. For me like you said Dabo being in there in this team doesn't have tremendous depth Thaba being in their kind of lines everything up the right way. But also just to me the true commitment to possession after possession after possession running their offense through floor. Spacing entrusting each other. And in getting high-percentage three point shots off Donald can help tremendously because he can drink breakdown that defense collect the second defender and then find the shooter sometimes it's found the shooter..

"It'll be imagined. Like, what was gonna come? So quickly. When Gordon left at went to Boston. And there was a natural sort of like, and it was deflating and go because you you were about to make a case you, and I know the case that that is Lindsay and Quin we're trying to make to them in those meetings. Were we have the team we're going to be the team that eventually upends Golden State? We're not probably good enough this year next year. But we look at the age of our players, we think Donovan's, really really good. That's why we moved up to get him. And all that gets pulled away. And what was it like the beginning when you search like July, fourth July fifth, and you like, you know, it's not all gone. But it was this is what we thought was going to happen. Yeah. I think I think it was a bit of unknown because Quinn had already ever coached. Gordon as his his mango off for the threes, or whatever it was. So I think a lot of what was just kind of like a bit of unknown of what what do we what do we do? How like he was the gosh shooting twenty shows a game for us and was an old sire. And and all that. So for us. It was a little bit like way way. Do we where do we go? What are we what what say all identity? I guess, and I think frozen it was always defensively, but offensively was like this mango he was we were throwing the ball to him every possession. And I think what they did. They're able to bring Jonas Taba and pick up some paces, I guess that fitted out out team and the way we played and then go to practice, and it was. Well that time they'd kind of given the case to to hoodie. And who'd he was going to be go. I and and we've obviously got Donovan who who'd come in. And and hopefully make an impact for like you said what what they believed he could do. But was still unknown and then kind of like cliquey fingers and Donovan starting and we've tried Rodney and Donovan's started off kind of slide. You could see what he was was able to do on the coal and. By christmas. Whatever it was January. It was a lot with these kids have a superstar. He's going to he's going to be an all-star and whatever else he's going to do in the league. And then I think pretty early on click to lie, and we could see it in in a bid at preseason training camp. And obviously early on like these these kids he's going to be like he's and you had to convince him of that a little bit, right? There was a lot of. And he talks a lot about that about the veterans saying to him take the ball and go stop deferring to us. You're the guy yet. I think like as you would know there's not many teams rookies get the case, I games into the sale whatever it was early on into the season and think he's such a good, quiet. Humble kid that like. Bigger as not not like you open. Oh, you like will not like shoot the ball like someone has to take twenty shots. And that's you and we trust you. We believe in you. And it did take a thing him Tom to be whole like he he always talks. He wasn't even that good. At college. Always used to say, we off-line hilarious. I never watched him at college. But I'm like, how do you? What do you mean? Like, you're doing these against the best defenders in the world, you there's no way you're not doing that against like, I don't want to badmouth any scholarships. I fly again. So there's no way. And yeah, I it took Tom. I think for him to believe in himself. He he knew from the inside that we had is back and wanted him to be aggressive and. After a few months. We kind of figured out who who we're gonna bay in. How we were gonna ply and it worked for us at a still working for us..

It was at the Letaba in Phipps, and I did not realize they had us cooking school. But if you go into the sort of Taba in Phipps at the back of it the back left, there's a little cooking school, and I had been wanting to make homemade pasta years ago. A little Italian lady taught me how to make homemade bony sauce, and I've always wanted. Learn how to make homemade pasta now that I've learned how to make homemade pasta. I'm not sure that I want to make homemade pasta. He was actually there's actually a real difference. You can tell the difference between the homemade homemade pasta, and the and the dried that you buy the story was it was definitely a softer slightly different textra. I really enjoyed it. But it was a a two and a half hour class we made regular pasta. And then we made spinach pasta. We made just as judicial tomato basil sauce and also carbonara sauce, and then we made a Caesar salad with a great Caesar salad dressing. It was a lot of fun had one lady in there. Who was actually I over her commenting to her husband that the guy? She listens to on the radio now on at four and she couldn't listen, but she'd be able to listen to S-Class over four. I did not say that was me and another lady realized too. I was when I when she heard me say my name. But otherwise, no one knew who I was it was wonderful.
