The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer
"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about
Airline Shares Take Off, But Should You Buy In?
"We start off with an all clear for airline stocks. United american jetblue taken off to the tune of five percent or more day with united seeing its best day since november the rally coming on the heels of this milestone daily air passenger traffic crossing the one point three million mark over the weekend. That's the highest level in a year. So is this the all board with these stocks. Tam you've been in these dr awhile sticking by them. Yeah well. I think until we get into memorial day and another. The traffic is going to continue to increase as the as the vaccines are also brought through. And i just think with airlines the multiples unattractive especially on a relative. Excuse me on an enterprise value basis because a lot of them are have a lot more debt on their balance sheets but I think they're going to overshoot. And i think the pent-up dynamic especially for the traders out there says the valuations aren't going to be terribly interesting on a relative basis to where they were pre covid But just you heard this week that digital bookings out sixty days or within three percent of where they were in two thousand nineteen and when you look at some of the other numbers. If they're getting in terms of digital bookings overall. This week was a very exciting week for airlines to see that kind of demand can stay in the trade. We'll look united's up fifty five percent since since feb one of america's well delta thirty five percent. I think you've had a great great run. But i think you can time this into again. I think you sell airlines. When they get back to peak capacity and they'll probably be sometime after memorial day carrington mentioned enterprise value. And that's something that has really concern you. You were one time. One time investor in these airline stocks right so the enterprise value is now greater than it was. I don't know delta over several of them greater than it was december of two thousand and nineteen. So that just seems ridiculous to me an evaluation because when you think about it as tim mentioned the debts much higher so even if everything goes back to the exactly the way it was they still have a boatload of debt that they need to service right to those interest payments aren't free so the businesses hampered their you know flying on fumes but i've said that for a while i just feel like it's you know this is the room before the news of. Oh wow these these businesses can take for them to be really really profitable again. So i missed the run but i'm absolutely not going to jump in right here. I think that I think there are over valued even if you think about a return even if you think about a them approaching break even getting to break even still

"This spring sixty eight. Men's basketball teams from colleges and universities across the country will gather at indianapolis for march madness that includes athletes coaches and staff along families and press. The organizers goal is to create a bubble similar to what the nba did over the summer. Indianapolis was already set to host the final four this year which nc double a senior vice president of basketball. Dan gavitt says made it a logical choice. We knew when we made the decision to come to one geographic location. Having as many of those venues in the city of indianapolis in marion county in particular was important for the health costs to be very similar. Gavitt says the city's long history of hosting sporting events should help the. Ncaa is headquartered here in the city. And there's enough venues. Hotels and transportation teams will stay in the four downtown hotels all connected to lucas oil stadium. One of the six sites to be used for games but the move will likely be a financial blow to cities that were set to host some of the games this year including lexington dallas dayton and san jose. The decision is welcome news for the indiana lodging association. It's president patrick. Tam says last year it's all twenty percent of restaurants permanently close and two thirds of the hotels facing bankruptcy. Now news is is indicative of the best news for hotels since march.

UK to impose tougher restrictions on millions of people as Covid cases soar
"The last day of the year and really britain has been dominated by just two stories for the entire year so as we look back at twenty twenty world it's just covert and brexit. Isn't i'm afraid. Yes i mean. It's interesting just thinking back to the this time last year where we would just about vaguely have heard about this. A strange illness somewhere in china but we would probably had still been talking about brexit. So yes those two stories have come to dominate and particularly the news headlines on the last day of the year they have sort of the interesting thing is looking at how the papers tackled us. And the varying degrees of optimism or pessimism. You've just been hearing some sort of a bit of optimism and some papers are going very pessimistic. Some furry optimistic spe daily mail which has done is to giant leaps to freedom which is referring to the vaccine and the signature of the the brexit trade. Deal but let's look at say the times for instance so their headline talks about freedom by easter boris johnson promises and not is talking about the approval of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. And saying that this according to the times could mean that in a by east by the beginning of april lots of people within the uk will have been vaccinated and talking about also the interesting shift in strategy. So that they're saying they're going to be now giving as many people as possible The first vaccination and delaying the second dose of that vaccination because of new research on how effectively these vaccines were and when it's best to give people the vaccination so that's generally slightly more optimistic view although he he's saying by eastern so is the ties with the time. Has its own interactive tool. When will i get the covid vaccine and you can put in various things like age and health history. When i did it. I'm not going to be vaccinated until late summer. I mean so. How is it going to be over by. I think i suppose the idea. Is that enough. People will be vaccinated and in the hope that the cases will have declined by then enough for these restrictions to be lifted. An awful life to get sort of back to normal but let's bear in mind. Let's take this with a pinch of salt in a. We were told that by boris johnson. That it would all be over in in twelve weeks that it would be over by the summer that it will be over by christmas and now it will be by eastern. So this thing does keep shifting back and bax tehran's suggesting i used to just prime ministers less than truthful. Vote for me to say that he he says slightly different things going to whatever people speaking to him though. I think that's ready. Obviously obviously wants to be optimistic but this has not been a year when as been easy. So i mean if we don't see the financial times so you know they have a much more grim images this and then they are not making this up. They're taking quotes from jonathan. Tam he's england's chief. Deputy medical deputy chief medical officer who is a of with quite turn of phrase often an interesting way with metaphors and see the he has said that the uk is in a very dangerous situation in its battle against coronavirus facing grim and depressing picture of rising infections and deaths and pointing out that Fifty thousand new cases have been recorded yesterday and nine hundred eighty. One kuroda virus related deaths. But again saying that there. Is this optimism about the vaccine but again questions about quite how many doses you can get an how quickly So the hoping that there will be millions of Oxford vaccine doses available next month in the vaccination program will be able to speed up but also pointing out that at the same time You know millions of people in the uk will wake up today in a higher tier restrictions than they were yesterday and starting the new year. That's an old say The schools will be going back As had been expected in the beginning picking of next week and this is also a story. that's The guardian is picking up talking about schools. Chaos and the daily telegraph saying is a race to roll out this vaccine in order to avoid a third to national lockdown. So there you know they are. Johnson says there's light at the end of the tunnel. The tunnel has been shortened. And we're moving faster through. Its pick one of those You know we are. We are not through

Biden Names His Picks For Key Players On His Pandemic Advisory Team
"Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be one bite and becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices. He backed legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president. There has been some pushback right to this particular selection from progressives right? He was a top economic official in the Obama White House. He famously was brought in to help after that disastrous rollout of healthcare dot Gove and save the launch of the Affordable Care Act. There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment. He comes from the business world since leaving government he's Leading investment firm, and he also served on the Facebook board of directors for a time. The reality, though, is that this doesn't require Senate confirmation. And even those who object to some of his connections concede he is good at managing systems and solving problems in a crisis that is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Thank you, Tam. You're welcome, Elsa.
Tahinis Restaurants Puts It's Entire Cash Reserves Into Bitcoin
"I think is this. Is chris coney speaking welcome back so you guys might have seen michael salo over the news media outlets recently. The ceo micro strategy You might be familiar with this already. So i'm not going to reiterate. The whole thing is about micro strategy put in most of that corporate cash reserves into bitcoin and then they make a business case for that so yes. We all familiar with that. We were just waiting for that first. Domino to start hitting and snowballing to other companies which is now happening. I was just browsing the old twitter as i do and chemicals this tweet from to heaney's restaurants who basically have just done the same thing and they have this tweet storms. I'm going to read out to you as to why they've done. What's microsoft's don as well now to heaney's restaurants. I've never headed them. But as far as i can tell. A canadian based company is a franchise of mediterranean restaurants. So that we go thus thus who. Who's talking here. So if you want to follow these guys check the tweets out. It's at the real to heaney's which ta h- h. I n i s to heaney's the real to heaney's that's the twitter handle so check this out. This is from the first of december. This was yesterday at five pm. Uk time so it says we converted our entire reserves to bitcoin in august. Twenty twenty. and since then we've been ridiculed and cold irresponsible fools in our community our reserves in dollah. Tam's doubled since then. Here's why we continue to buy bitcoin forever. Time for a threat. So festival says right that they did in august. Why is it took me this long to hear about it. Have you guys head about this already. Let me know if you already had about this book. This is the first. I've heard about it. And that's what august. September october november four five months ago. They did this. Maybe they just didn't say anything and didn't wanna say anything but it sounds like 'cause we've been ridiculed for it. Well they must've told somebody that follow is all the clients customers knew about it but i didn't say that we got so he goes the tweet storm the first thing they say is our current macroeconomic environment implies that there's going to be a ten to fifteen percent expansion twala monetary supply every year for the next three to five years in breakfast or more assets are going to inflate. Bitcoin is digital gold. And it's going to have the highest real yield because tween You can't pick any more of it old. The other investments are overvalued trades bonds our ethical stocks are grossly valued. Gold is a shitty says shitty store value that debases by two percent a year. Gold is a twenty twenty scam. You'll see governments and institutions pumping it to dump on retail investors who are misinformed because bitcoin is a thousand times better across all aspects. All these investments have some upside and more downside. In our opinion there is no way for the average person to get an etch. Bitcoin hasn't asymmetric proposition. You can get an edge here because it has a history that scared most people away. It hasn't been embraced by all the institutional community. That's changing fast. Now if you confront run this will this shift. Then you have an edge. It's being traditionally difficult to buy an old people can't pick up the phone and buy it if you go through the trouble of how to acquire insecure. It's that will give you an edge. It has all the technology upside of apple. Google facebook and amazon combined from a decade ago. And you saw what they did over the last decade. I get tweet namik says bitcoin is the so. That's a that's a combination. The fast fiber didn't i didn't segment in the b- go twenty six as they go on. Bitcoin is the successful successful digital monetary network. If you come into it right now you'll coming in at least so you're coming in at three hundred and fifty billion market cap. And it's unstoppable at this point so it makes sense to be at the ailey to this threat. Trend bowed pony trend. No threat as the price goes up. The value of the offering goes up because liquidity is the value proposition. This is an example of something where the higher the price the mo- value. We get the more people want to have it. And the more robust against this is not true with a stock as the price of a stock goes up it dilemma from its cash flow and it's p. price-to-earnings ratio goes from twenty to forty to sixty to a hundred as with many things as the price goes up. The risk gets higher with bitcoin. As the price goes up the gets lower. It's such a simple beautifully engineered. Winder that doesn't have all the competitive risks that so many other things have because it is so very simple is just twenty one million gold coins in cyberspace which divide all of the competitors. Bitcoin is the winner. They go on by one or a fraction of one and as people adopt the network value proposition increases as the technology gets better. The value proposition increases and his people like get more productive. They'll swap more cash flows into it and the value proposition increases. They go on to say and essential banks print more money. The value proposition increases again. That's just an elevator pitch. The bitcoin rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. If you're interested dilemma. Let us know we would like to thank the cyber hornets. The honey badges the huddle as the maximalists the developers and the good economists without them we would still be in the duck. Educate yourself look is when knowledge meets opportunity also followers for some amazing content. So they we got. They don't specify in this tweet stone. Exactly how much money into has millions of dollars they put into. Bitcoin as reserves micro strategy did actually say how much they put in. All this says in the fest we is. We've converted our entire reserves to bitcoin. So you know. One hundred percent of their reserves. So i suppose that means more doesn't it. What proportion of the company's assets will preserve the cash reserves. They put into bitcoin not the amount. 'cause if micro strategy said we've bought five hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin and that was only ten or twenty percent of their their reserves. It would make me less than putting all right. So i think that's a good metric. What proportion of the companies reserves not. How much money do they invest in it. Because that's more this objective risk that the company is taking rather than the objective value placed on the stack of money right so that we got restaurants the next company to put all of the business currency reserves into bitcoin. Who's going to be next. Who do you think's going to be next. Let me know.

But authorities say they've seen an increase in the number of hikers who get lost. Using similar methods. They say they often have errors and don't work in areas with poor cell service are advising hikers heading into the wilderness to bring a paper map, a handheld GPS unit and a good old compass.

"There. anyways. And if you know the geography up there, you have to hop over some pretty big hills to get from the coast to the center of Washington and it was it was a cloudy or snowy. Day Snowy Day. Why would have been snowy? Because we were coming from cash. All I. Know is we did in fact up ice I, remember very distinctly seeing ice on. On the must've been the couldn't have been the PEDO too because I would have been underneath must have been the outside air temperature sensor going through the window. And I remember that's kind of sobering. WHOA look at that. That's interesting. And and he also took it very seriously and we've I forget exactly how he resolved at found in different. Altitude or something like that. But the only time I won an airplane and ice mixed together is when I'm getting a drink in the cabin. Related. The is if it's in association with the Qantas a snack cart, right? Right right. and. There's story. We're when we're in flight training, we're taught about icing. We've talked to stay out of visible moisture when the outsider temperature is thirty or below And the implication is you can only ice up if you're invisible moisture which found not to be true. Night flight. From Louisville back to Augusta Kansas. In the comanche some years ago is December. had been a big ice storm moved through the area the day before But it was clear night. No moon the stars were spectacular. Anne says a dock You're getting nice over there because the leading edge on my wing is a different color than the rest. Shouldn't be I mean we're not in the clouds or anything. And sure enough we were. Developing light rime ice and. As it turned out, what was happening was the humidity was about ninety eight percent To temperature was about thirty. Moisture was condensing on the cold skin of the airplane and freezing. But there was no visible moisture. and. We checked in with light service found an airport close by that had an open runway, an diverted there and. Had about a quarter of an inch of ice on the leading edge. In. The last fifty miles at a ticket to get there. Very very sobering because I'd been flying around for years on the the idea that if you're not invisible moisture. Up Right and. WRONG RIGHT YEAH So. Jeb You've your Florida guy you don't. You know what snow is you? Know is that's That's why I'm in Florida. Exactly. Yeah No, snow is worth all the other things. Yes you sort of. There's flying snow and then there's living with snow. And Either of those things. But yeah. So any other thoughts we know by here? Flying in snow, as long as the as long as the temperatures cold enough. He's not a thank because because the snow will stay frozen, it won't adhere to the airplane. The airplane will be the same temperature or close to the same temperatures, surrounding air, and as long as that's I I'll say. Thirty Fahrenheit or below thirty you don't really have a whole lot to worry about. and you know everything being equal. The colder gets the less were you have is when you're on the cusp of thirty, one, thirty, two, thirty, three, and you're now you might want to. Take an extra peak or to outside. But Isis certainly nothing to to play with just as as Let's just simply. The best example I have is, is about the phrase known icing and why you shouldn't be flying around in ice in non approved airplanes. Excuse me. Years Ago I was on my way back from California and in the Debonair and leading down into one of my favorite fuel stops, which is winslow Arizona and. Letting Dan I went through a couple of white puffy. So there. Wasn't any big deal wasn't any real turbulence in them but when I came out the other side of those white. Puffy there was ice on the windshield. Clear is. Well. That's interesting. I didn't. Yeah. It was it was right on the thirty thirty, one, thirty, two Fahrenheit. A temperature and Didn't didn't really accumulate on the airplane I thought that I saw and. Pretty Soon I was. Again descending. So pretty soon I was warmer air anyway and I didn't pay it any any any mind? landed. Tax Up to the self serve pumps shutdown climb out and I hear this hissing noise. Like what the Hell is that? I hopped Anna start looking around and one of the main fuel tank Vince is. Urinating one hundred lead onto the ramp. Okay what is this and I quickly went and released an open the fuel cap for that tag and it stopped. And what happened is events froze. The actually, the overflow that was that was leaking gas the vent for that Tang got plugged with ice. And as I, descended. The pressure increased inside the tank star pump fuel overboard. Wow. So Isis not just a lift issue I is not just a lift drag weight issue. It can also foul up your shrimp fuel events as one example interesting. Well okay. All right. Well, winter's coming the winter is coming. What's a man? That's what the man said. Right yeah winter. The Promo for? That game of Thrones you're just. So that's why you shouldn't I think every airplane Oughta have needed pedo. Heated pita..

"List about flying in the snow. Getting ahead of yourself here but wh, what's the significance of wet snow an NTSB, news release wet snow flight hazards highlighted in NTSB safety alert. So apparently, it's not just you. It's the NTSB US trying to bomb me out to Well, this is worthwhile information. Of any and I were A. Comanche spirit of St.. Louis I'm sorry Cherokee it spirit of St. Louis years ago. We, head freezing rain overnight, and then it stopped and we had the airplane in a hangar. By Germinal. Correction because they didn't have their de icing fluid truck out yet. And Son cleared up a sky cleared up everything sunny. We got the airplane all cleaned off an all water. Removed no ice and then it started to snow. And we check the air temperature outside. And it was a eighteen nineteen degrees. And in talking to light service like. You know. Pull airplane out and. Don't let it sit in the snow, but let it sit outside until the temperature. equalizers in matched as ear free matches, ambient temperature, and you should be okay I was told. And in fact, that worked out we flew. Of A four hundred mile trip, we drew black one hundred and fifty miles suit. Snowstorm. And A, you don't want to strobes on when you do that. Man. Does. That give you some traces but? The important thing was that the airframe was too cold for the snow to melt and stick. So it nothing stuck to the airport. We didn't even have a snow or ice on the prop when we made as a precautionary landing because. Fuel. Fuel, consumption was not what it was supposed to be. and. You WanNa know how cold it is. You want to know what kind of snow you're going to be getting into because if it's wet snow. and temperatures enough like. Twenty six to thirty degrees. It'll melt and referees. Now, you've got an airplane. Trust us when we say they don't fly very well rice right I've met a handful of. What you WANNA. Might WanNA call right stuff air pilots in my life serious qualified bad ass pilots if you will and there's only a handful of things that they almost all tell me your. Nighttime, aircraft carrier landings. And Ice. I've just so many pilots is you don't mess around with ice period. I've never had occasion to because I'm not that kind of a pilot but Except on board we picked up some ice I. Think I vaguely remember that time that you and I flew to. To Wichita And I for some reason, I wanna say it was on the trip back and we were in the clouds. Okay It was like, October? We're motoring along in the clouds and and exact same moment. We both noticed that the outside air temperature was like thirty one degrees or something like that. All right, and we suddenly went okay. Maybe we should start paying attention to this and I think we looked and maybe saw the tiniest bit of frost and made some changes you took us up or down or whatever it.

"A seven, sixty seven. The masses different. The runway requirements are different. The speeds are different. All this kind of thing but. The point we made. When we talked about this episode the first time. Was it just a textbook example text book example of use all the tools available to achieve a favourable outcome. So yeah, I agree and we did talk about that and I kind of like the way a anonymous pilot phrased it by saying, create time and expand your team. So this. This tickles me he says, I was literally walking the bike loop around. Bowman. Field in Louisville has day was relating the story of one seventy two caught the wires over the Ohio River. Yeah, you know he seems to be everywhere. It's kind of like I think. I've actually seen another. I, think he sent me a text message the other day saying. That I I, was just there something else we were talking about I forget. All the notes next time but Yeah. So well, thank you anonymous airline pilot and It's good to hear from you again it's actually really good to be hearing from you and My understanding is that you may be able to speak publicly. At some point. We would love to have you join us if the house like ups asked me but hey, I just work here. Right. What's next here or real real quickly real quickly just to fill. A gap close the loop. ebay has airline of beverage. Cart. Okay. They're they're. Pricey. Here's one for nine hundred dollars or make best it offer things like that. So they're out there. If someone's inclined is not gonNA come at all the Qantas stuff prices go up from there so I can say, okay, well, there we go. It's like Oh you know and and we also know where to get Tim. Tam's so and we we're we're. Full Service podcast full-service by guest. I alluded to this earlier this is a video of. So this is from the bold method website really really good interesting website somehow associated with our friends at GE news but the and thing that's how I heard about this and they publish a lot of interesting articles about Practice and and and safety things and and whatnot, and this article. Is just recent. Oh No, it's not from a year ago, but I just came across it recently, what would you do? The headline says, what would you do if an airplane taxied in front of you during touchdown? And, of course, this is a an interesting hypothetical question one when you're thinking about it in training, but we have here. Cockpit video of this exact thing happening. And it's it's a little bit of a sobering piece of video I. Don't know if you guys have listened to it I watched it rather. It's a small aircraft for some reason I WANNA call it Cessna some sort of I don't know why wants to women. Seventy two. Airplanes you want seventy two alternate wednesdays. So wants me to on final. Very, routine final two touchdown. The landing one, seventy two is either touchdown or just about to touchdown when another one seventy, two taxis out across the runway in front of him. And and Yikes I usually watch this video and you go holy moly now what do I do? Now. This particular pilot chose to firewall the throttle. All right and and we lose sight of the of the. The intruding craft. Yeah intruding aircraft. But the? Says and obviously they didn't touch. We were relatively sure of that. The the account says they came burberry close and then the the landing aircraft manage to climb out and that's the last. That's the end of the video. So. I don't know if that's the choice I would've made. And I'm curious. What if you guys WanNa WanNa speculate on what choice you might make in this kind of situation has this ever happened to you I? Guess that's a first question. Not that close. Okay. Potentially close yeah. David of you I mean, this is really close this. If this hadn't if the landing air I would go so far as to say, safe landing craft had not done something evasive they would have contact it would have struck each other. This was going to happen. David is anything like this happen to you? Yeah want really. and. Caught the intruding aircraft out of the corner of my left eye. Just as it came not only came in front of me came over me. and down from the left side. And A. Seen the landing is going around. What's he doing? Oh, I don't give A. In. Far Welded at the same time our older pitch trimmed down. And didn't stow the wheels until I was five hundred feet up and had the flap stowed. and. The Guy came over later and apologized. and. Complimented me on doing something quick enough to. Prevent. wrinkling any metal on other of our point. but. I was. I was a little bit edgy and thinking my. Yeah. That's definitely a fresh pair of pants. Not Not, all that conciliatory I'm I'm not sure. I would have been either well. Yeah, you know. One. Thing I'd like to comment on is. Basic concepts behind defensive flying. Yeah So you're approaching runway. And Yeah you've got your eye on the air speed in managing your put. This happens to be a course of severe clear day and does it look like it's all that bumpier windy or anything like that the the arriving airplane is aiming basically for the numbers runway numbers and touch touches.

Run out at twenty twenty. Some of US would consider that that's a good thing. I know I somebody. Yeah. I was chatting with a cashier, an my local drugstore, the other day, and we were just kind of bemoaning the the whole twenty twenty.

You need one of those airline beverage. Carts exactly and the idea of having the Card itself is not an unsound. Okay. I kinda part company here when they stock it as they stock it what are we talking about here? Charge it charge for what they're charging. This is Qantas the Australian carrier recently mothballed or turned over or sold or whatever all of its seven, forty, seven th. There's they stopped flying seven forty sevens that was a big. It was a big deal. We we put something on the list for episodes. Okay talked about that or they drew A. Logo. The stylized kangaroo on with. Flight track. Thing.

Would Be Kinda? Cool. I don't necessarily need everything they throw on it lately would sure picture New Year's Eve party. Two bottles of Champagne. Hundred sixty bottles of wine. Small bottles now, small bottles. But the eighty where the equivalent of twenty standard seven, hundred, fifty milliliter bottles like he'd get the liquor store. So was a lot of wine there.

Trump returns to Oval Office, says it's a "blessing from God" that he got COVID-19
"President. Trump has been back at the White House for a couple days now, after being hospitalized for the Corona virus, And today he released a new video aimed at showing everyone he is doing. Okay. I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise. Of course, His doctors have said that he is not out of the woods yet, and they are monitoring his condition. Very closely Here to talk about the latest are NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith and science correspondent Richard Harris hated both of you. Hello. They also a OK Tam. Let's start with you tell us a little more about this video. So it came after Trump spent 48 hours out of public view. Once he returned to the White House. This was recorded in the Rose Garden. He emphasized that it was outside of the Oval Office and in terms of spreading it to someone else outdoors would be a safer place to film it, certainly for the staff. The message was essentially, I'm back. I feel great. He recorded it a few hours before it hit Twitter on DH just in time for the evening news. Fox News aired the whole message and White House chief of staff Marks met Mark Meadows, who was also on Fox emphasized that the president was hard at work. And I understand that President Trump talked a lot about therapeutic drugs in this video. Richard. What did you make of what he said about those drugs? Right? Well, the president's video is clearly a rush job. He talked about an experimental drug he called Regeneron. But you know, that's actually the name of the company that makes the product. Trump said he got it in the hospital, but his doctor earlier had said that he got the infusion on Friday before he went to the hospital. The president has decided without evidence that it made a big difference for him, even though he received other medications. Here's just a little bit of the video. It really did a fantastic job. I want to get for you what I got. And I'm going to make it free. You're not gonna pay for it, huh? Okay, So what exactly are these drugs like? How do they work? Well, these are antibodies that are designed to block the virus. There monoclonal antibodies they're called. It's a very promising idea. Kind of like a shortcut to temporary immunity. At least that's the concept. But the data aren't yet strong enough to get full FDA approval and indecision, too. Regeneron. Eli Lilly has a couple of products in the works, and they see most promising. For people who are just getting sick. It's not a miracle drug, but it seemed to keep people out of the hospital. Eli Lilly applied for Emergency Youth Oscar with authorization today for one of those two products that it has in the works, but FDA approval process takes time. The lowly executives were not expecting a snap decision, as the president suggested was coming in is right and we also just heard the president say he's gonna make these drugs free. I mean, what are the chances of that? Will regular Americans be able to get them? Well, that's a good question. Presumably, the federal government will subsidize this there. They've already subsidized Regeneron project to the tune of like half a billion dollars. Lily is doing it on its own dime, but but they also expect that the government will subsidize it, Lily, by the way, his eyes expecting to produce a million doses of this first product by the end of the year, so so there could be at least reasonable supply. Although it would have to stretch globally, so right, Yes. So that's sort of the butt. But, yeah, it seems as though if it could get emergency youth authorization, it could be available and potentially if the government feels like it at little or
Switching Cryptocurrency Markets On Binance
"One of the confusing things about exchanges is the the screen looks exactly the same no matter what market you're looking at. The only clue as to what you're looking at is the asset pair listed at the top. So the order in which the assets appear matters. So when it comes to reading the numbers Ath Batiste. Is Different to BTC e t h is essentially the same market is just looked at it from different points of view and we WanNa know which side where viewing from. So where reading the market correctly. So. The first thing to know is the asset this listed I last cold the base asset and one is listed. Second is called the Tim's asset. So the base and the Thames. When we look at the price, it's a ratio between those two assets. And because markets are constantly moving, we need some kind of anchor something that doesn't change so that we can understand what's happening. And this is accomplished by the based asset always being one unit. So. If we're looking at E. T. H. BTC market well, I'm looking at one. Age and its price in BTC. If I then changed the market. By clicking on the pair. Let's say I change it to exit P. BTC. One Unit X. P. and its price in BTC. So that's one ex-. Priced in Bitcoin. So to be clear. The Thames Asset. Is what the market is priced in. Now switching markets is as simple as just did is simple as clicking on the current trading pack. And then clicking on the market, you want to change it to. Add suggests that it's best to actually just type in the search box because this'll fill to the list and make it much simpler than scrolling. So whatever you type in here. It will filter down to just those assets that have the letters that you typed. This relying you knowing the ticket symbol for the YOU WANNA trade though so If, you know the name of the asset, but you don't know it's ticker symbol has a tip for you. You can go to coin market Cap Dot Com and you just set for it by name. So let me set for truthfully. So it is true flip. And when you go to the page for the asset is says the name of the project that for and there is the ticket symbol right? They're. So the ticket symbol for true it is T.. F.. L.. Now, the next thing you need to know is that assets may be priced in different assets. So let's go back to bite on CNN and when I click on the trading day, you'll know his here the top the rationally four Thames currencies or four Tam's assets to choose from. You can be in be Biden's his own coin Bitcoin Alz, and then USD. For the sake of simplicity, I would stick with Bitcoin, BTC and the US dollar coins. They're also the markets that typically have the most trading activity, which is a good thing because when you play in order to buy or sell a Crypto, you want it to be filled sooner rather than late. You don't want to sit there waiting for someone to come in in a process that order. said to be clear what is listed in this box depends on the Thames you have selected. So here like like BNB. All this stuff is only only coins at trade against being be if I'm on BTC tap, then everything appears is only the stuff that trades against bitcoin and so on. Now, this is important because the set box is also limited to whatever tab you have selected. So if I'm on the US Dullah Tab for example, and then I put in the search box. S. Well, I'm only going to see this edge results for IOS trading Pez against the US dollar coins. The. Good thing about finance and the search feature is that will I can leave the sandwich in there, and then just click across the various tabs and that stays in the second books. So I can see by doing this all the different things that IOS trades against. Now if you enter the ticket symbol in the set box and nothing appears, then that's most likely means that the asset is not even listed for trading on the exchange you're using. So let's search for true flip again. So we did T. F. L.. Was the ticker symbol we just found out about. and. Well. nope. In this case Binz doesn't list true flip anyway. This is also one of the things you can use coin market cap for when we go back to Komaki happy when you sit for an asset. And Scroll Down does these tabs down here you've got charts and then you've got markets if you click a markets. And then we scroll down even further. You can see here true flip is only listed on one exchange, which is q coin, and it trades in two markets once against Bitcoin a once against if theory. So it's a quick way finding out if the asset you actually want to trade is listed on your exchange on not. In this case if I wanted to buy or sell true flip out after go and create an account with the exchange that's my only option. Just to close off this lesson, then drive at home. Let me go back to the trading screen. Unless load OBE. yaas BTC SO CETERA Yeltsin the such books make sure on the Bitcoin Tab. Click on it. Make sure that the symbols at the top his BTC unlike I said Elliot, the whole interface remains the same in it structure but the contents of all these various elements is now filled with information about your speedy see. Now. I'm GONNA break all this down for you and explain it step by step to gauge that point of crypto exchange mastery. This lesson was just focused specifically on switching markets and showing that insight about the base and the Thames currency. That's how we determine what something is priced in.

And I listen really closely about what was happening about what was going on and everything she was going through and just smiled. I. Smiled have you ever done that have you ever heard somebody and you're like? I have heard the story like ten thousand times before maybe more importantly, you've lived about ten thousand times before. and. That's exactly what I heard and this wisdom was coming to my mind. We call it Scott logic around here. The wisdom was this. I just one thing. Whether it's home. Whether it's getting happiness or just about anything else in the world, it always seems to go on way. It happens it. Why is that? I had I know the answer that I too. I thought for a minute I was going to stop myself but occasionally I surprised myself. Or human. It's a very complicated world, and if you're like me, it's very complicated. Mind that inhabits your head. or human the wind blows humidity goes up and down the rain comes down the sunshines and then we gotta go what am I gonNa do with all this stuff I got a yard demo. It's confusing. Isn't it sometimes? So, it's just human. So just accepted as being human but Scott Superhuman maximizing human potential sure yard, but you're still human. After a long week, even superhumans get tired and have a beer on Friday night. Or Two. But sometimes, you want something different, right? An idea pops into your head. And you don't WanNa sit there on the fence and drivers crazy 'cause you got three choices you know that right? Longtime ago if an idea pops into your head, you're either GonNa go do something about it. You're not going to do anything about it. Or you'RE GONNA send the middle and go what am I gonna about it. The first two are cool because either you do it or you don't the one in the middle will drive you crazy. But what happens is people get an idea how it's in my head. Now it's lingering around there right side talking to you all the time. You may not know what you mean by you want something different. You're the boss of you right. And since you're the boss you I know you said things and thought things before you really don't know what the hell you talking about. Listen I I'm like you I really don't specifically know what I mean by that. I will tell you having done what I've been for very long time when people call me and their specific about what they want. It's really cool because it's either really okay. I shouldn't say this but you know sometimes you hear people specifically like, what are you thinking? But at least we have a starting point. Or maybe sometimes it Massa great idea. Go do just like that. But when they're in the middle kind of meander around, they don't really know what they mean by that. That's Kinda hard to do. So this is the trajectory the here's what happens when when you are out there. This is why happiness is kind of like shopping for a new home. You want some different. But you don't know quite what it means. When you say that? then. What happens? You settle into. I'll I'll know when I see it mode and what do you do you start exploring? You'd out there I love that part. and. Then your search becomes all consuming it's like buying a house. If you've ever shopped for a home, you know it's like, why have no really idea what I want? I don't even know where I wanna be not really sure exactly how much I could afford I'm not sure how much space I need I. Don't Know How long I'm GonNa live. There are the schools good and everything else. I don't even know by God. There's nothing on the market those sellers they went all the money in the world I don't have that I'm giving up now. Tell me I'm not right on that one. Your search becomes so time consuming. You start to get stressed out a lot when you're going after your dreams by the way. And what do you do? Most people stop. But then something happens you're stopping you're. Not GonNa Change Darn thing I don't care what I was thinking even though I didn't know what I was thinking I'm not going anywhere I'm stopping because you know why I don't even know what I was looking for, and now it's all stressing me out. I can't do this anymore and then suddenly Tam perfectly the perfect opportunity. The fill in the blank perfect house perfect happiness perfect job perfect whatever the thing that you were looking for even though you didn't know what you're looking for. It shows up and you. Cool see I can see now that's what happens next.
Ken Nguyen: Republic Bridging the Gap Between Investing and Startups
"We can grander founder and CEO of the public and really excited to speak with you. Today can about republic and so moved to super innovative things. You guys are doing with crowdfunding in republic note in particular. So thanks much for joining us. Brian thank you so much for having me. Wonderful being year. For some people probably haven't heard about Republic Right but republic east of connected with Angel Lists and lists of course had the big impact on crowdfunding I mean there's also growing list right that has come out that we've had on the podcast before as well. Speak a little bit about your background time angels and sort of how that evolves into starting republic. I started out my career securities attorney in New York, and then over time went into asset management in back into academia. So back in twenty, three, thirteen, I got a chance to get introduced to novel and injuries team and became their general counsel Wendy roll out his new investment product costs indication right did everyone knows about but injuries syndication is only available to millionaires or accredited investors then under president, Obama is a change. In US law and very relevant for blockchain laid on as well that did change in the law allow non accredited meaning. Anyone doesn't matter what income and net worth to invest in private securities, and that became fully legal in two thousand sixteen and that's when I left. Angeles to Launch Republic with a-list ended up invested in us. So there a significant backer among many of the VC's suggested to heritage between to companies. Role and yeah, I think many people have heard of the jobs act in in that regulation. So tells a little bit of what was that changed at happened in two thousand sixteen and you know what was the opportunity that opened up back then? If I may take a walk down memory lane or history lane and go little bit far back through the Great Depression in the United States back in the nineteen thirties easily eighty years ago after that will regulate is in DC decided, hey to avoid investigating defrauded no-one can invest in private securities in private company unless they really Ridge if they rich, we assume that this fisted and can you know tolerate the loss of capital that went on for eighty years in even though in the US people spend like eighty billion dollars a year and lottery ticket. And the same amount addict casino, and yet you have to be a millionaire to invest in start it obviously stop making sense a while back, but it took the Obama administration and a change in the law of for that to really now opened a gateway so that anyone if they go through a platform like republic can invest in early stage, Google early stay facebook or a restaurant even and will little bit behind compared to European counterparts particularly the UK and other countries in the EU that had allow up for democratized private investing years before the US. So what inspired you to start Republican? was there anything that you saw during your time angel which convinced you that there was a problem worth solving here? The problem with stuffing I think goes a little bit back before my time at is so my family immigrated to the US from Vietnam in we stuttered out in Palo Alto in the bay area. Just because you're right in the thick of innovation in at Tam Amazon and Google new startups and everyone wanted to invest but like we weren't accredited so we weren't able to invest and even neighbors who were credited meaning millionaires, doctors, lawyers this still couldn't invest either. So Cadillac the teenage me was like men I wish I get to put a little bit of money into Amazon Google early on but couldn't and I think catalyzed stay with me and I went on and became a lawyer Working Wall Street and still couldn't invest privately us so that desire. To make venture capital private investing more accessible I. think There's a little bit of a personal background behind that an angel is each is Amado that when I knew about I was like, wow, these guys are making it possible for my oldest siblings who are physicians and engineers to invest. That's really cool and so that's why I joined injuries back in two thousand thirteen does only a glimmer of the possibility. What we do at Republic is Cadillac to hope that a single mom Vietnam Ecuador when they can invest like five dollars in Assad of in Silicon Valley. blockchain and ICO

"Oughta done. Everything I tried over again to stop the drug. Use the drinking and I basically come to the conclusion. There was nothing I could do to get out of it. I was so miserable. I couldn't keep living that way, so I thought I can't live with the drugs and I can't live with them so I was I was actually planning suicide and. I thought that was the only way out and. So some friends came in Bicknell. Above the floor, one day literally took me to the local detox center, and they had these the guys from twelve step program that were coming in putting on meetings and I saw. Wow, these guys were all like me. You know right and look at them all. They're all living life again and happy and I thought. Maybe there is a way out. And they gave me their great they they call it the big buck. The alcoholics anonymous spoken I got reading that in. More than anything. I saw that I wasn't completely crazy that. Might behavior was just like millions of other people who came before me and millions of other people came before me got healthy again in got well, and a little late went onto my brain August and I had hope again will. There is a way out of this there is you know. I went from being basically someone who had accepted his own death to someone who had hoped and that's that's quite an experience. Wow, that is profound. Yeah, and I ended up not going to any treatment centre those There's quite a waiting list in Canada and I got heavily involved in twelve step program in and for me. That did wow and I've found. My recovery and setting. So really being able to see that other people had also experienced this that you weren't allowed loan when when when they came and got you or you saw the meetings, and you went to twelve step. He saw like man I. I'm not alone. There must be something here. There must be something I can do. Yeah, absolutely, and that's a wonderful feeling because you know I, guess be brothers but I know for me I thought there was something seriously wrong with me I thought. Thought, that was I was different than everybody else way I was behaving and thinking in in it's. It's really comforting to know that I'm not an unusual person. There's nothing particularly wrong with me. Just have symptoms that are typical of addiction that everybody who's in addiction experiences, and all those behaviors thoughts all horrible things. I'd done all under the umbrella of addiction right so I wasn't a liar, even lied all the time to cover my addiction and to continue my substance use and. I wasn't as horrible person I. was you know a person with addiction? Who is expressing the typical symptoms of it right? It's it's actually like a addiction is a is a is a disease. It's not this moral issue at all this right. Yeah, so you know. If asked for the overall message, I would give to anybody who struggling with addiction. I would say that you know. The first thing is to understand. Addiction is a matter of biology. It is not a matter of morality or choice random. Nobody wakes up one day and. I'm going to become an attic today. You know that's my goal today. Right I mean if you work in addiction in the or you. Addiction I mean it's just so obvious. I think it's hard for people who don't struggle with addiction or don't have don't know it in some kind of personal level to understand to understand it. Sometimes, it can be hard to get feel like a moral issue like we'll just don't do it to stop, but. Like no, you're not going to. I'm GONNA find a way for you to to continue this. Yeah, I mean I went to medical school in the nineties, but and it's not a whole lot different now practice medicine knows L. years, and I honestly believed that people with addictions were bad. People woke up every morning and bad decisions. And when I used to work in the emergency room, and we used to get people that came in all the time, just creating these weird and wonderful ways to get prescriptions for narcotics and annoy us. You know I mean doctors nurses. We were really annoyed. Right and we just you know, and my medical training in my experience was either just bad evil. Wake up every day and make bad decisions and you know when when you're an addiction yourself. You apply that stigma to yourself. It's not a pleasant thing you see yourself doing that. Yeah, definitely, so it's very very helpful. Self forgiveness, and and you know to. To find a recovery. You know a self. Forgiveness is important part of the process, and that's part of it is understanding that you're not a bad person. You're not a liar you're you're person who was addicted and was expressing the typical symptoms of addiction. Right and this gets you into some of your research that you had sent me about cognitive bias, and so I'm really interested in hearing about that as well. Yeah, yeah, that's. I? used. When I was doing my interviews with these people with addiction match well with my own experience I found that people with addiction can rationalize anything. You know they they can come up with reasons to support. Decisions that are destroying their lives and I was already familiar with the concept of cotton bias I, thought gators, either some serious gotten through Biasi. So you know I kind of started documenting the various biased I observed in getting into the research literature and you can you before you start? Can you define cognitive bias for people might not know what that term means. Can you define it and how you're looking at it in this research? Yeah, sure so Tobias. It's. It's not just something that happens. If people with addiction something that happens to everybody, it's our natural inclination to make information match what we want to believe or what we already believe. For example, humans have fundamental need to think that they're awesome, right? Everyone wants to thank your good productive in their effective people, so we tend to be biased where we pay more attention information that shows how awesome we are. We tend to pay less attention to information at shows that. Maybe, we're not as good as we think we are. So that's an example of a cognitive bias at that. Everybody does right and I I would imagine we could flip that to like. If, you're in the active addiction. You can't see any of the good things you're doing. You only look at all the bad stuff. Yeah, so you know have been identified one hundred eighty eight different cognitive biases that we that humans use to support their ideas and beliefs and values and basically where we twist information to suit our beliefs, because it's easier for us to to adjust information into distorted information, it is to change our beliefs, but. I found that people with addiction they. Distorted information. is pushed to extremes that they're able to substantiate their substance. Use winners when it's something that can't be substantiated by how how can you substantiate continued substance use when you're spending all your money. You're losing your job losing your family. You're losing your health and your miserable, so it's one thing for someone to distort information a little bit to support their their need to to know that they're really good person and all that, but it's another thing to distort information to support continuing using drugs or alcohol, so one of the characteristics of Addiction is that it takes all the flaws and weaknesses in human psychology away. Our brain works, and it pushes them to extremes and this. This is one way that I found that our psychology was pushed through extreme by addiction. Propagate.

"Name's Dwayne Ostlund I'm your host and our guest? Today is Andrew. Crew is going to talk about his research. Around cognitive bias I was really happy that Andrew was able to reach out to me and asked to come onto the podcast. Because I love this kind of research, I love looking at the brain operates in the addictive process, and how we can do something about that one of the things on his topic here, which is cognitive bias and understanding Hong Biases that we all have some con. Con Bias, but when we get into the addictive process that cognitive bias is amplified, which enables us to sometimes really make some bad decisions when we're in the midst of addiction, which causes more unmanaged in our life and more problems, so Andrew addresses that and talks about that talks about his own journey with addiction, which motivated him to do some of this research to understand. Hey, how could I make those decisions I did in the midst of addiction because I look back now and I'm like that wasn't really aren't really great decisions right, so it was great to have him on.

That I've really been looking forward to talking with is name is Andrew Prue and he is going to talk about cognitive. And Addiction so Andrew Introduce Yourself. Yeah, hi, I'm a medical doctor and been through addiction myself so I now work exclusively addictions, and because it's become meaningful for me. And I'm involved in research and writing on the subject awesome, so tell us a little bit about your journey. If you're okay with that, sharing a little bit about your addiction journey, yes, sure I went through addiction myself. I was addicted to alcohol and opioids and. I've been practicing medicine for about fifteen years. When I developed addiction and I also practice psychotherapy psychotherapy practice alongside medical practice into when I kind of fell into addiction in all, I thought I had a pretty good handle on human mind. You know in the human body and all that yet. Things were happening to me that I just couldn't figure out right and I couldn't understand why I just couldn't stop and. I had a pretty low bottom and I ended up. I nearly died I ended up in Detox Center and I got there I was very interested in knowing what would happen to me. Because I I didn't understand. My behavior didn't understand my thought processes and all that I mean I I'd seen addictions clinically, but until you limit yourself. You don't really understand how these people live in how they think and it's. I couldn't explain what had happened to me so just from my own edification. Decided to start to researching addiction in the addicted mind, N., Y, Y, what happened to me happened in. Why couldn't stop it and the became a very fulfilling pursuit. I mean I learned about myself. And I shared that I wrote a book about the subject to explain in a what happens to the mind and we're out. Genetics fit in What happens to the brain? Physically I ended up starting a a research project that involved interviewing over four hundred people in various states of addiction either active addicts in Detox Center or people that have been sober for years and. I've. Married the data that collected with. With. Research literature how your story is so familiar to so many people who get into the field of either helping people with addiction or researching addiction most of the time it's because they've been through themselves, and it's so overwhelming and confusing to understand. How can I do this it so against my values I'm destroying my life yet. I'm still doing it, so it's great that you were able to take that and put that into into your research in what you're doing. It's very. It's very interesting. You know for anyone interested in the human mind or behavior. It's a fascinating study because it makes no sense whatsoever yet. There is an explanation for everything that happens you know and my mother. When I was inactive addiction and really going downhill, she used to say to me. Why can't you just? Say I don't know I don't know. But when I when I did I needed to know why right right to really understand like To, but then also like how can I keep doing it? Even though one side of me insane, stop what you're doing. Yeah, and your your behavior just keeps going down and down and down and. Fade Yourself. Why can't I just stop? I'm miserable. I'm not enjoying this anymore. It's certainly not fun. So why do I keep doing it and fascinating fascinating thing right so then. You started to do this research and started to. Forward with that. What's Nice about it? Is that I find in my research in my interaction with people especially in detox they they want to know. They WanNa know what happened. They feel the same way I did. What happened to my brain. Why was paving the way it was and You know because it doesn't make any sense a time right and for an academic person. It's a fascinating study because. You know there's so many different brain processes in you know. The psychology involved is really really interesting for anybody, academic or otherwise right? Yeah I would imagine so you started to go onto this quest of figuring in a way figuring yourself out. Yeah, exactly so tell me a little bit about that. So how did that start? You got sober if you WANNA talk a little bit about that, you can kind of how that worked for you and then how you got into this research. Yeah, well I was. I was at a point where I thought I'd tried. Everything went to the doctor and. I saw a psychiatrist and you know I.

"Within accessibility in within what our regions are what? Geographic ranges. You also have to think about you know who's using this. At what price point out what socioeconomic status levels you're looking at some of the more specifically, you can define it the better. And then to get those figures, you want to consult outside sources, so make sure that you're double checking and don't just take. You know. Populations within Metro regions with incomes above acts don't just find it from one source and take. That got checked out across as many sources as you can find in so. Once you have that total addressable market as a whole, what you want to think about is a reasonable estimate to how much of the market using one company can grab so. One hundred percent is almost assuredly impossible. I can't think of a company that has one hundred percent of market. Economics don't support that rate is is market is really big. Really profitable other people are GonNA flood the market so. Don't ever assume one hundred percent, but the amount that you assume can vary by industry so what you're looking at a fragmentation within the market, so you WanNa look at the largest incumbent players to see how fragmented that isn't so. One nine off the top of my head. Apparel is a highly fragmented market. Surprised to know on our largest, apparel. Retailer in the US is Walmart and they have about seven percent market. Share so anytime. You're looking at the apparel market within the US. Don't ever assume that someone's going to get more than seven percents because Walmart is so large, geographically their footprint so vague there so amount etc, etc, so scale appropriately to that so once you figure out how big the market is in what percentage you want them to capture. Your third step is to estimate how quickly you believe the company Congrat- that level. Again you're not ever going to be right. You just want to be reasonable and defensible so. Again I mentioned. It's more of an art than a science, but that is really the process and how I think. The only two things I'll add..

You just use your way your equipment in your spot for the entire session. But I have to think that pressures margins right in a class where you normally have thirty people, you can only ten.

I don't know how you serve the same amount of people when you need exponentially more space. While and that's the thing that from a customer standpoint. If, you're still able to get in a class, ideally you wanted at the time you want, but if you're able to get in a class.

That is a record, even if you back out auto sales, that's also a record. Although every once in a while, we talk about businesses that maybe like a struggling retailer, and they had a good quarter, and we talk about their same store sales growth, and we say yeah, it was off a low base. This is great to see, but this is in comparison to the retail sales. We saw April, which were quite low. Right Right I. DO think we should make that caveat rate, so it is still below Kovin or precourt levels, so spend about four, hundred, eighty, six, billion in May, and spend in February of pre cova pre shutdown. The spenders about five, hundred, twenty, seven billion, so we are low on a historical looking back perspective, but it is marginally better. Marginally better although you know there, there are a couple of categories that even if you go back pre pandemic, you compare them to. What we saw in January and February, they're up solidly and not surprisingly. List but not surprising. The ECOMMERCE just continues to be incredibly strong, even again, not just compared to April, but even compared to pre pandemic months. That is true. Online sales were up almost seventy eight percent in May. According to Adobe analytics I think you know that number makes sense and I think it's something that we're GonNa. Continue to see even as A. Stores open up and retail footprints reopen. I think we're going to continue to see a fair amount of online sales. We've talked about this before. With the major retailers like target and Walmart but I'm curious if you think. Both of those businesses have done such a great job with. Pick Up. With basically just enabling sort of sinking what they're doing with online with the physical stores. I have to say. I've been impressed particularly with target just as As a customer what I've seen with their ability to you know there have been times over the past couple of months where I've gone online. I'm looking for something and they're like well. It's not at the location closest to you, but it's a little bit for you know. They've really done a great job. I'm curious if you think we're going to be seeing that across the. Now table stakes for all retailers like. You have to ECOMMERCE. You have to have it sinked with your physical stores so that you can enable pick up. Right I mean I. Think you're getting to even a bigger problem here which is really our customer service management, and so traditionally with brick and mortar stores..

"Os Setup so. What's Nice about this? When I get a new machine I can Immediately Open the web. Because you know I I know memorize the password and I can set up the new machine With all of the commands and everything that I need I have to say this is incredibly useful. It could be you know when I went car shopping. I put all the things that I needed in a car and then once I mean this is. This is so easy to do. I don't know I'm really a fan. Now it's free for a thousand blocks here. I've put together my Kovic. Nineteen pages with instructions on how to wash your hands Prep for the corona virus. You could put web pages in here. he could put tweets. You could put maps I feel like it's This is the exact opposite of taught and I think it's actually insanely useful. So there we got two picks one for one for the minimalist one for the maximalist notion. Yes installed tot on my Mac just now and I immediately know that I'm going to be using it a lot. It's puts a menu bar icon for you. I love and I just need to sometimes just like oh I gotta remember to call somebody later to put that in there and you know maybe it's also something that I wanna kind of plan out what. I'm going to do for work for the next week but I don't need to open notes for. I just need to do something really quickly. Yeah it's going to be useful for me for sure. Just if for no other reason than it's got a menu bar icon that lets me just jump in and look at it really quickly so with notebook. Yeah Yeah Yeah see I like wicky wicky whereas you just keep on. Keep on going and keep. And it's not adobe frame acres pages Leo like there's some there's room in between both. Yeah no I agree and to documenting battleships. Yeah there's maximalist vs minimalist. That's the that's the idea here. So Yeah Andy. Nocco your pick of the week My pick is something that I've been looking for for about five years and specifically thinking hard about for the past four months before pulling the trigger because it was kind of Spendy for me But this is all right is the Philipson meaning bag. I've looking for years for years to get a bite for life type of like everyday. Carry sort of bag solving. It's better than the nylon bags that usually get. I wear out after two or three years But wouldn't be so open. This is made out of one hundred percent ox blood leather and just not being practical. It really took me a long time to find one. That had all the earmarks that I liked meeting built really really well also really really classy. Has A lifetime. Warranty are also lifetime repair for things that fall outside of the warranty but also fit everything that I need or I want this sort of everyday carry bag to be. I'm I'm talking about the the the carry on bag. You stick under your seat not the not the role away you put in fifty bucks so it's a little bit spendy but It's it's very very thick. The twelve like a canvas It's reinforced at the bottom. Really Nice Leather. For All the fittings of all if Allah fixtures really really nice like leather strap all the fixtures are real brass. They're not some sort of like weird cheap pot metal or something like that but what I really like about. It is that it might not. It also has a needed for me. It needs to have a carrying handle at the top so that if you're just grabbing something from from the concierge at the hotel or you need something just to fix it to the topic rollaway. it's not saying this is necessarily the best bag for everybody. This is just the best. But this had all the features I liked out of every previous bag that I've been using for the past five or six years. Just walk you through a few of them like I need to have like the I like. The kind of has what's called a weather. Weather flap on the top for a couple of reasons one of which being that often too if oftentimes but not always the the straps that hold it down. We'll have like a little bit of like Like a bulge here. So if you have an umbrella or tripod can stick it up there. The other nice thing about having the storm flap. Is that if you're in a casual situation? You could just leave. The flap open like did and keep growing growing into it and like spring is coming and so the addressing layers. So I'll have my jacket and the jacket you can simply you don't have to even stuff it inside the bag even just laid across this. Put the flap over it and then carry it around that way has to have a magazine flab at the back for first order retrievability usually of things like my ipad or things that I'm reading At really like to have these little pockets on the edges like one four. My water bottle usually the other one has my super high capacity. Recharging battery The other thing the other thing is kind of controversial firm number of people. I know I don't like bags. Have Lots and lots of dividers little pockets inside them because now in very I just don't have stuff that fits into those pockets specifically so what I prefer to do is just like sort my own gear a little bundles like this It's big enough to hold really any thirteen inch and maybe fourteen inch laptops. The only like this is my thirteen inch macbook that I usually keep in this kind of asleep One thing that's kind of a warning sign for certain people I like this. I should say It's actually has like sort of a team that makes the the top of it narrower. So if you have a larger laptop you might have to sort of put one in first and then the other end as opposed to sliding it all the way down. I like that because when you have the flap in it protects the contents from the rain and also protected from fingers. Just being able to jump in people people behind you on the subway and grab things But again a lot of people are going to want organization. That's fine I should it only has as far as a pockets go. It only has two but they are big pockets and if you WANNA know how big they are. It is actually big enough to carry. Not only because he is he having his pockets. Not only my my Sony disc man oh pocket also has eter. That's how they're not. They're not chintzy little pockets If you pull vinyl out of they're not gonNA have words you'll get you can fit. You can fit in Alpine here now so like I said it's not it's not cheap. It's three hundred fifty bucks a available colors and get a smaller version of this. If you're just using it with an IPAD and that costs a little bit less if you sign up for the newsletter you can get ten percent off immediately And that's what I that's. Why would I engage with? Their policy is once again if if anything ever goes wrong with it because of defect if they didn't close a stitch rather properly and something POPs off Senate. They'll fix it for free. If just wear and tear happens they will charge you for it. But they've been around for about one hundred years and they will. I like the idea of fifteen years from now having like patches on this thing and I've seen videos of people who've had them for ten years showing off after ten years they look very nice beaten and and positive I will get. I'll give one little warning though and this kind of I had to navigate this to three hundred fifty bucks. I tried to say that. I'm frugal rather than cheap. So this is why it took me four months after discovering this to really decide if this is absolutely going to be the thing that was going to work for me despite the fact that there is a thirty day return policy so you can faucets and resale will condition. You can buy check it out with your own stuff in your office and then send it back. You don't like it but now there is a weird weird and suspicious thing Filton if you if you're live in Seattle. They have a filter. Filton factory store where you can buy seconds really cheap. That's fine but if you look online if you go to Ebay you'll find lots of sellers that have the same bag for two hundred fifty dollars. And it's not as though and their brand new with tags they say and they say oh well it's not like a limited number. They only have to. They seem to have as much as you can possibly get and for the life of me cannot figure out any answer to how are they able to get an unlimited supply of these bags for one hundred very very famous bags for one hundred dollars off retail unless they were absolutely counterfeit And so that's and I'm pretty sure that they there are a lot of conflict bags over there. Because I've seen like online reviews. I said Oh. The the the the so-called brass handle broke off after about a month or the stitching came undone like almost immediately and also most suspiciously. This is why I was so cautious that it won't I can't get my thirteen inch macbook pro in here and it's like wait a minute. I act- I didn't actually buy it until I went to the Boston store locally pro in their maximum my fifteen fifteen inch macbook pro inside my goodness slip. Base works fine. That's my age and I thought it was. That's nice so a and again if this were packed to the absolute gills. I think I would have problems getting it out because once again Sort of like a lip Kind of would have to make Shimmy out but so I would say make sure you're buying directly from Filton Because that was the big warning sign with people. I was concerned that. Oh well gee if it doesn't fit my macbook pro. I don't always leave the house with a Mac book. It really is more about the IPAD. But that would be kind of a deal breaker. So that's why actually made a trip. I filled my backpack with all the stuff they would I would Even even potentially carry everyday carry bag and went and actually took to the store for a test fitting and fifth grade so I think that there are knockoffs. That are a little bit too small. Oh the old one last feature that really liked and again. These are things that I have. I have to abuse these things for a while before I realized is what like the bottom of this. The bottom of the bag is wider than the top. Which means that when you are in that mode of. I'M CHECK OUT OF THIS HOTEL. I need to get out of here to get the right to the airport and you're just stuffing things in your bag. The death of me is when I'm I'm using a conventional bag where it's the same with from bottom to top so I'll get nice and stuff stuff stuff but then I can't close the top because I've overstuffed it. The thing is all the stuff is at the bottom and the narrow part of the top you will almost always be able to flip it over and actually seal it up anyway. So I've had this for about a week now I've taken it out on a couple of different excursions really really like it is. It's it's the has the hallmark of any for me for any like major purchase. That I will definitely be worried on my guy. My really gonNA spend three hundred dollars on a bag and then like a first time actually use it. I completely forget about how much spent on it because it is. It's the right size. The right functions the right features and I think it looks. Damn Nice and and I'm of the age where I'm going to enjoy having like the same bag my Ford Prefect bag that I've been fantasizing about since I was born with thirteen years old if I were going to a stringer for the hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy. This is probably the bag that I'd have with me all the time. Should I have a bag Jones as yeah many people know? Oh and I've never heard of Filton before I've been looking at all their stuff man. This is gorgeous since eighteen ninety seven. Yeah and they have. They have backpacks they have. They have briefcases. I didn't some people are like. Oh I I want to zipper top that I could secure well. They do have briefcases and other bag's Zipper tops to them. I want something big enough. That could actually not only have by laptop but also have a couple of days worth of likes stuff for a trip. They have also a small double. They have lots and lots of different stuff. That's of that same thing. They have only three or four stores. nationwide others flagship store in New York. Whether instance. There's one in Boston teen cloth I believe. It's like fine Corinthian leather. That's the name that they came up with. Its eye briefcase..

"Present for the birthday present so Again I I. I'm just interested in it from a perspective of young younger people right Yeah Yeah Yeah and you're right. It might be the future. Young people have no taste again on their think about that. All it could be done to begin with. Why would they watch a stream? That's okay but but it might. We watched the apple streams. Don't we we watch the news because we're interested in those products or if if black magic is releasing a new camera? People would love to have a livestream where someone's like. Let's show you the camera. Let's talk about the experts talking about now. That's not what this is doing necessarily right now. But I think that when people were launched neurotic there's a lot of people who are interested in that product. And right now you know. I was I configuring A clear calm device and and it was like there's no documentation for the best parts of it. You know people under thirty go to Youtube immediately. If they have a question they don't read a manual of I go to YouTube. Everybody like I go to Youtube and then I you know it's it's not there. I'm like Oh man what's so. Here's Joan Hill plus Adidas and a stream and show off his sneaks. I'm sorry what do they call them? They don't call them sneakers just trying to keep. I'm just trying to keep up with the kids.

Not Think Wilson from cast what I thought. That was a bad choice in the first or was it on purpose. Woo tried to lure. Thome eggs into the franchise. Would-be why interlocking out. By BINDRA Day Laura Gill pick of the week. What am I buying this week Anything except for maybe some food so I just and I'm I'm I know there's going to be a lot of people who said this has been around forever. You're so behind the Times but I just discovered yes I know I know I know but I just discovered it so bingeing with Fabisch. Who's You I am? I'm so new to this that I'm not sure what his history is in the culinary world. I recognize those tattoos could do. My son watches watches. Okay yeah so it. It's it's really just nicely put together Youtube Channel and it has recipes for For for for things for foods but what is so cool to me as that. He uses foods that are referenced or eaten in other movies. There's sandwich from birds of prey right and the one that caught my eye was Ramdan from Paris. I wanted to make this one watching the movie she saying. Get some make me Rahm done. And what is that I want it? Yes any not only does he make it the with the in this particular episode of. He makes it with the store bought prepackaged stuff he also makes his own version from scratch six. I WANNA make the real deal. Yeah so it's it's really cool and I've only just started getting into watching his his stuff but I've just been really impressed with delicious food making techniques and I don't Cook at home or anything I'd just like to watch videos of people cooking food. How come he can play parasite on his Youtube Channel? And I can't even play his youtube channel playing Peres. What's the deal man? He paid the money. Think he paid parasite no no four million views in one month less than a month in two weeks yeah. He's a big channel on Beijing with Babouche Romden from parasite four million views. Lots of people making Ramadan menam. I'm not making anything with a key. Ingredient called CHAPA getty. Good this is a good pick. I'm GONNA try this. This looks good. I don't know why he doesn't get the sponsored. A killer sponsor spot right there. Oh well I'm just no one's paid yet but he's got he's working on it. I'm sure I'm sure he's working. There's a big Mac. I don't know what a big Mac Donald's this parasite truffles Bob's burgers. Sorry he's explaining the juxtaposition of cheap food with really fancy engages on one hundred fifty dollars truffles on it. Three dollar big Mac. Right yes delicious. Ruined the big Mac All right cool. Do you ever see his face or you. Just see as you do. It usually what happens at the very end of the episode? He leans down and takes a bite of the food and then you kind of see him leaning down in eating so you do get to see his face but almost always it's from the chest douses. Henry's hero this is who Henry my son wants to be and like on Brooklyn nine. You Save a few of the Rama noodles crunchy and you put them on the top afterwards. A really great is that. Is that a special thing though? That's a joke from Brooklyn nine. When character got sent to prison and he made his fame in prison by recommending that they keep some dried Rama noodles to crush on top and at first they were angry. That an interloper with dairy. Tell them how to eat their. Rahman then they tried it and it was delicious and he got his prison so good courses lunchtime. But I'm just saying this looks so good. Yeah yeah it does. And this is the one with the prepackaged stuff so if you host the toward the end and you see him. He makes the noodles from scratch. He makes the The Broth in ten minutes It looks pretty good. Looks exactly like the one in Paris it by the way right? Yeah Rene Ritchie your pick of the week so I. I'll say if you like if you like him. There's also a channel called pickup lines With an M. that's a Canadian Vegan nutritionist living in the Netherlands who does very similar but very healthy trendy sort of good foods. You can check that out too but my pick is an APP. Called Tot from a little company called the ICON. Filers wondering if anybody would pick this. Maybe you've heard of Craig and Berry and get may here. I don't know you know they've been around for their young. Some some kid named Gruber. Yeah well he tested it but it's it's really interesting. It's not a full on notes happen. It's not meant to be and it's not a clipboard. Multilevel clipboard manager. It's something that just lets you record seven. Bits of random text you WANNA record. It's a single street interface. You've got different colors to identify the different tabs. You Swipe between them and just put down any texts that you want to save something. That's not important to you enough to be a note that you want to keep you know. Virtually forever but something that you don't want to forget about either. It's like a little scratch pad and the the business model is so interesting. The MAC APP is absolutely free. You can download it and you can run it on your Mac for free but if not the companion. Ios APP which runs on Iphone and IPAD is twenty bucks well for an Iowa. Five bucks a note. Total totally is but again like the MAC APP. Which is what they really want to make is free and they weren't you know the the IOS APP is going to take them a lot more to support it and it wasn't really their first in line use case but they said if anybody actually wants it's available it's just. It's twenty bucks no subscription. No up sell no anything else. Just a one time twenty bucks and you can have your notes lickety-split sink everywhere expect. Let's see how the people react to that when they complain so hard that they want to pay for subscriptions. Well here you go. I ain't GonNa buy this prediction. No yes you know what? I would suggest. This would be a good programming exercise. You could write this weekend. You'd learn a little bit. You'd have it just the way you wanted. It seems like a trivial APP. The concept is trivial. Everything is the execution like it's it's Berry Amiga and the icon factories ability to get a thing but like a beautiful thing that you're paying for. Yeah it's pretty pretty I was you know I meant to talk about this because I thought this is the strangest thing ever. What is it? It's literally four different notes. That's it I think. Seventy seven okay. Yeah yes seven one. Two three four five six seven I it. So it's seven notes like you already have apple notes which is unlimited. You already could use Google for free. It's let's see these don't just grow like you don't write something down and they never looked at it again. Now you have three thousand things and see. This is the benefit one is. If you want to add something new you've gotta sacrifice something else. You never have more than seven pages. Okay Twenty Bucks. I always said I would pay cultured code so much more for an APP called thing that only let me have one thing semantics focus would use machine learning to subtly. Drop out the things that knows. I'm never going to do like just save me. The mental hassle of admitting defeat every day. Just like we need never does this. We're going to use a better about himself machine language and machine learning to to look at what you constantly say you're going to do and never do and then just quietly have disappeared but it can't it can't do a flash it just takes takes it out like you just you just put it in their day. It's just gone. So Alex. Glad Alex you've accidentally created a brilliant idea for a pro for productivity up. Where all of your projects are like Tamagotchi? That they need if they are going to pay attention to the way they die and you know better than all them footprints in the sand. But what happens what happens. Is that if you don't if you don't tend to them if you ignore them for a while they don't die. What what the APP does is an encrypted with an encryption key that you can't access until you donate fifty dollars to a charity that you've already designated i. I just think they disappear. And if you don't really look for them for a while then they die then they just this just this no I. I use apple notes. Yeah I my whole life is a curious how this could be. This could be whole range of intentionally Spartan APPs this. This is exactly the sort of APP that I love to support where it is definitely not going to become a name in culture anywhere. It is a a weird idea that a few people got so captivated by that they had to wish they had to build it into reality rather than just let it. Go back to the of ghosts and wins And it's the sort of APP where most people are going to be like but they're going to be a few people that Oh my God. This changed my life but not not a baby but certainly my first kitten after after your product. I definitely respect constrained resources. You know like I think that part of what I love about twitter is that it's an art via you know it is a. It's an true. I why the sonnet is a great poetic for tweets. Most of them are almost like there's like seventy nine character. Yeah they're they're always like in an and I 'cause I write them in there about three hundred and then I cut it down. I move things around and I- restate things and I get rid of my passive verbs and I do all the things that need to do to get to get down and I like that. I like I like that that that process so I get. I get the constraints but I just do so many notes per day so I go back and look at it. I wasn't GonNa make this a pick but I've been using something called notion. Are you familiar with notions? I love notion so this is the exact opposite of tot. This is kind of an endless notebook for anything that you want. What's cool about it? Is that any note can be shared. It can become a a webpage a public web. Page or a private webpage There's there's graphics there's images it uses. Markdown I think it's beautiful but it's completely free form fact it's a little challenging because at first you open it up and I don't know what does it do. I don't under- I felt like it was more like a development platform for personal productivity. Meaning that once you get if after four or five or six months of of developing this thing for your job or your needs you'd get something that is absolutely custom-tailored but out of the box it's going to be a bit of a Slob but when you when you see but I agree once you see what other people have done with it. You're like I WANNA make that slug. I want a Antionette go focused productivity. I have started using this a few weeks ago. And it's become my absolute number one. I just keep it running. It has an APP for IOS android. Mac Windows it's a web interface continue to show John It's got a web interface This is my Mac..

That's a good friend. I actually think he might have done that very first. One I remember. There's like eight nine years ago. Aw But till this day I still have had a lot of these moments. I mean it's been so long and you always feel feel really vulnerable and you don't I wanna be the one that asked for money you don't WanNa feel like you're telling the world how you're being and of course like you know our culture values humility so so much. I think that's something that it's always going to be such a struggle off like being taught early early on an Asian woman Asian Christian women for me like humility. And like not saying what you're doing it's so important And then at the same time wanting to engage people ball and wanting to share so that you can really help the organizations on the ground because most people like the biggest give you can give them It's not necessarily just donation. It's a helping them. Spread the word so that naturally more people would want to jump in and if people weren't willing to share about kitchen like we would not exist. You know now that you've gone through kind of the whole journey of PS kitchen. What kind of advice would you give your younger self? If you had to think of one really thoughtful thoughtful thing that you could say to April ten years yeah the willingness to leverage here network I think networking quote unquote sounds terrible and a lot of us like hear that word and be like. Oh I don't WanNa be networker like ooh what is overly ambitious etcetera and Just the idea of being authentic and genuine and building the network to serve others It's actually a gift and also almost as an applicant obligation like if we can be a voice for those who don't necessarily have the same platform that we do than we should use it And I've just been completely humbled and surprised by the outpouring of love and generosity and support by my quote unquote network. That have become just like families around this crazy. AC adventure about this venture. That I put myself through that We decided to start together as I share. What is the impact that you've created with if the donations from PS kitchen? Yeah so with he has kitchen has been. It's been really fun. So we have you know We have created it over forty plus jobs already for those that are previously in difficult situations We actually have built mm two schools. We've funded the building of two schools in Congo one's going to be called. PS Justice once called. ps that's great and we're in the process of during a third school hopefully And just different organizations that were released strongly believe and If you go auto our restaurant actually if you flip to the back of the menu We highlight an organization called share. Hope that just does absolutely incredible work in Haiti eighty. And I've seen it with my own eyes. We've created seven hundred jobs. There and all the profits go back to funding breast cancer. Every cancer screening for the women Night classes passes for any worker that qualifies the program or sign language. Classes for the deaf workers As well as like restore NYC WE. I WANNA help them. How the women Get sustainable meaningful work as well. So you can't tell I probably have I have a passion specifically around the idea of Giving someone dignity to provide for themselves so it's a lot of economic empowerment jobs creation nation education so that you're really lifting them up To help themselves. Yeah what made you pick dignity as sort of like the underpinning underpinning could question. I really believe that. We all have our purpose and passion within US and we're all just so created differently and it's a matter of finding something that you feel on purpose when you give you know if you sometimes don't feel excited about giving the certain thing or volunteering for certain things or feels like I should do this as opposed to. I really WANNA do this. Maybe it just off purpose at the moment so finding what your Creator has made you into I was just talking to my husband about it this morning. Like For me some of the words that have can come to me over the last few years of processing these are like inspiring hope affirming significance igniting joy. And for him something they more like Growing impact and you know growing Sustainability Generosity in scaling uh-huh so it just comes down to how year created and for me seeing someone destroy that they have when they know that they are adding value to society when they matter like letting someone know. Hey you are important. You're not just a receiver you to have something to give it just like so so so encouraging for me One of our staff at PS kitchen He was in out of prison for thirty years. He was addicted to heroin. Went early on his life and just like a sadly like you know kind of a typical story of growing up not necessarily in the best neighborhood uh-huh and they'll having a lot of role models just not knowing where to turn to And it was through another arrest where the judge said you either shoes rehab or it's more time in prison. And when he became clean he had already made all the decisions to drastically change his life but the difference between be able to change his life completely versus that decision it's finding meaningful work. And he looked for four years and when we gave him a job simply a a dish. Washer you know He told us that later on us. We got to know him. He went to the corner. Forty eight and he just started like crying and was like. I can't believe someone would give me a job like me and he often would say like. It's it's the dignity and knowing that I add value and I can bring something to society and I love that that's so priceless and for the chow second generations to he loves sharing his story Sometimes people ask like all. How does your staff feel about sharing the story and we never ever ever league if anybody wants to share? They're allowed to they should and he he loved sharing historic because he was the next generation. Who might be going through a similar hub or can prevent them from going down? That path he wasn't. I'm just see like no. You can choose something different and you can also add a lot of value to society. Thank you so much for tuning into the hear US roar podcast.
