"Jj haines has always been interested in tech just like his dad in nineteen seventy nine. His dad bought and brought home an apple two plus though he was using it for his business to do spreadsheets.

Time Is up for Eviction Moratorium
"Let me hop into something. You spent some time looking at a curiously titled hearing that seemed to have a bias pointed in a certain way about the eviction. Moratorium this idea. That tugs at the heartstrings. Nobody wants anybody thrown out because they can't pay the rent. But what before we get into. What the fate of the eviction moratorium is thirty thousand foot level. At first it made sense a year ago if it ever made sense i don't know how government gets into the relationship between landlords and renters in the first place but give me a eviction moratorium one on one and then we'll go forward with where it all goes. Well you know if you look at the at the economic performance charts from last year. They're not like any other year in american history. I mean the the unemployment rate In april of last year just all of a sudden just goes vertical. i just shoot straight up The economic production rate does exactly the opposite. Just shoot straight down so we knew at the time it was an unprecedented Situation in congress is instinct overall was correct and it was to give people money. This is an extraordinary situation. A lot of people are are being thrown out of their jobs for no fault of their own so just give them money to get through the situation. Of course nobody had any idea. It was gonna last as long as it remember fifteen days to to threaten the curve That was in mid march of twenty Twenty so No one knew how long it was going to last So what happened was reasonable Measures like a renovation because people who had lost their jobs we're gonna have a hard time paying their rents due to reason We're we're called for and the the problem is is that congress became incr- the whole thing became very political congress became very erratic about it
Has the Panic of the Pandemic Changed Our Society?
"Take thirty thousand foot view of what's going on your cultural commentator. I read your stuff for decades and you have a very incisive view of what the heck's going on how is this pandemic and the panic. That's a in sued from it. How's that going to change our society. And gosh can we ever change back. Well that's a very good question You know i mean people have pointed out that pandemic word panic along with the word dem democratic. And why the something to that. It's it's You know this is a seasonal respiratory virus. It can be serious for a very tiny part of the population One half exercise certain precautions on. But there's no doubt at least in my mind that this been used and abused by governments across the world to As a kind of Exercise in social control. I imagine if you years ago if someone told you that The cdc or governor cuomo or whoever or saint. Anthony fatty would Would would Be able to tell the population of the united states that they were not allowed to appear in public without without wearing the kind of face diaper. Would you believe it know that some kind of bizarre orwellian fantasy but that's where we are now and you know the politicization of disease And the invocation of public health as a tool of social control should concern everyone especially especially at a time when more traditional forms of social control. I'm thinking of What's going on in washington. The they've arrested something like four hundred people who were hanging around the capital january six.
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.
"Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and
Cant See the Forest for the Trees
"I just had a major breakthrough moment the other day about this rough patch that i've been going through and i shared with you guys a few weeks ago that i've been going through a rough spot and at the time i couldn't pinpoint what was happening Because i was too close to it. But i knew like my energy was down. I wasn't following through on things. But you know when you're in it you're in it and you can't always see the pieces clearly because you're just in it and you know that saying you can't see the forest for the trees. I didn't understand what that meant for a long time. And it's only been in the last few years that i've come to understand what it really means and it makes sense to me and this is exactly what i just went through so when you're in the middle of your life in the minutia the day-to-day stuff you're in survival mode. Like jumping from one minute to the next trying to keep it all together. The kids in schools in pick ups and drop offs and working spouses and houses. And i mean it's a lot right. You're just trying to keep it all together. That's the trees you're in the trees and when you take a breath and look up all you can see. Are the trees all you can see over the next five things you have to do. And the last five things. You didn't get done right like that's the trees but if you could jump in a helicopter and fly up above the trees and look down you see the whole forest when you have that thirty thousand foot view the past becomes more and yes. I know helicopters. Don't go thirty thousand feet airplanes thirty thousand feet. But you know what i'm saying. You can look down on the whole forest in easily. See the path. You can see where to go where to turn left go straight turn right because you're looking down on the whole picture. That whole picture is your life but when you're in the trees yet can't see the path because you look up and see nothing but trees you can't see the forest for the trees. That's how i describe the value coaching too. By the way you hire a coach or mentor because they have the thirty thousand foot view and then they can see all the moves where all you can see are the trees. You need the person that isn't so close to it to see accurately what moves need to be made.

"thirty thousand feet" Discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"End. rick There was a great quote by Yeah president of manpower group it was employees are acting like consumers and how they are consuming. Work and san francisco fed saying that extra benefits. Add an effect on job decisions. I think both of those things along with on my way to bowling last night in a one square mile of a commercial complex fourteen help wanted signs so i think all of those put together helped me derive helped me drive my number. He concluded that. Click off a little. Bit yeah you know. It's a problem. So i was in a bit of a fender bender. It was funny. So i buy all my cars dealership in atlanta called jamila. So i i buy all my vehicles. There was really thinking i need to just go on and take my denali in. It's got about forty five thousand miles on it. It's the resale value of it is way higher than what i owe on it as she and swapping out for the twenty twenty one model and that i was in a fender bender. Now i'm thinking maybe you get fixed and going and do it. The cars jinxed but You know i'm going to be put off in in trading it in because it's gonna take an extra week to fix the car. Just because of the delays and supplies in the labor shortages. It's taken them a longer. I tried to rent a car. He can't rent a car because people aren't turning the rental cars in because they can't get their old cars back because it's taken longer to fix them up there across the board. Shortages and inflation is on the rise and the governor's like temporary. Don't worry about it. We've got the leaks on the ufo report. Now let me just give you. The rundown here is the headline from the new york. Times it says. Us fines no evidence of alien technology and flying objects but can't rule it out either. A new report concedes that much about the observed phenomena remains difficult to explain including their acceleration as well as ability to change. Direction and submerge american intelligence officials have found no evidence that aerial phenomena witnessed by navy pilots in recent years our spacecraft but they still cannot explain the unusual movements that have mystified scientists and the military according to senior administration officials briefed on the findings of a highly anticipated government report the report determines that a vast majority of more than one hundred twenty incidents over the past two decades did not originate from any american military or other advanced. Us government technology. The officials said that determination would appear to eliminate the possibility that navy pilots who reported seen unexplained aircraft might have encountered programs. The government meant to keep secret. But that's about the only conclusive finding in the classified indulgence report. The official said and while the forthcoming and classified version expected to be released to congress by june twenty fifth will present few other firm conclusions senior officials briefed on the intelligence concluded that the very ambiguity of the findings meant the government could not definitively rule out theories that the phenomena observed by military pilots might be alien spacecraft the report concedes that much about the observed phenomenon remains difficult to explain including their acceleration as well as the ability to change direction and submerge. One possible explanation that the phenomenon could be weather balloons or other research blues. Just not hold up. Cases because of changes in wind speed of the time of some of the interactions. The final report will include a classified. Annex officials said while the annex will not contain any evidence concluding that the phenomenon alien spacecraft the officials acknowledged that the fact that it would remain off limits to the public will likely continue to fuel speculation many of the more than one hundred twenty incidents examined in the report from navy personnel. The report also examined incidents involving foreign militaries over the last two decades intelligence officials believe at least some of the aerial phenomena could have been experimental technology from a rival power most likely russia or china one senior official briefed on the intelligence said without hesitation that us officials knew it was not american technology. He said there was worry. Among intelligence and military officials that china and russia could be experimenting with hypersonic. Technology has invested heavily in sight. Hyper sonics believing. The technology offers the ability to evade american missile defense technology. China has also developed hypersonic weaponry and included it in military parades. If the phenomena were chinese or russian aircraft that suggest the two powers hypersonic research has far outpaced american developments in what encounter strange objects like a spinning top movie against the wind appeared almost daily from the summer of two thousand fourteen to march twenty fifteen high in the skies of the east coast. Navy pilots reported to their superiors that the objects had no visible ingen or infrared exhaust plumes. But they could reach thirty thousand feet and hypersonic speeds lieutenant ryan graves and f. A eighteen super hornet pilot. Who was with the navy for ten years told the new york times in an interview these things would-be out there. Every day and with speeds had other pilots observed he said twelve hours in the air at eleven hours longer than we'd expect in two thousand fourteen as super hoard pilot had a near collision with one of the objects and an official mishap report was filed. Some of the incidents were recorded video as well. Now what are st- hyper sonics. This is from two thousand and nineteen also with the washington post the russian military and fridays that it had deployed a hypersonic weapon that flies at super fast speeds and can easily evade missile defense systems. American officials said they had little doubt that the russians have been working on hypersonic weapons which sit on top of a modified missile. It is capable of carrying a nuclear warhead at speeds faster than three thousand eight hundred miles per hour. Moscow has been working on the technology for years and has invested heavily in it determined to reverse the pattern in the cold war where it was often struggling to catch up with american nuclear weapons systems. If the new sipa system called alvin guard works as putin boasted. When he described the weapon a year ago it would enhance moscow powerful nuclear force hypersonic weapons fly extremely fast and can maneuver along unpredictable trajectories. Making them extremely difficult for current system to track much less suit shootout senior administration officials and military officials said the united states plans to deploy. Its own hypersonic.

"thirty thousand feet" Discussed on Leadership and Loyalty
"I look at something that could rattle my image of myself that could rattle other people's image of myself short. Either you bring up a really good point. one thing. I do with leaders who i find clients. A mindful i find are risk averse. Give them the practice area of every day. One thing that's going to force you outside your comfort zone more said another way one thing. That's different This this happened last week I had a leader as working with and and and she said to me she goes well. I don't know what that means. What does that mean right. So i said are you left your writing. She has already. This is great. So do everything lefty for one day. See what happens. What do you have to lose. Its something small. This doesn't require money. This doesn't require taking a course. Mrs just about shifting habits and and we can all do it we can. We can absolutely all do it. Is i think that we don't we don't know we aware because we're we're instant willing things. I've great poem about the the two young fish swimming in the water passing the old fish and the fish looks at them and knobs and says. How's the water today. Leads the young fish swim on elect. Stop for a second. Look at each other. You what the freak is water. And i think that a lot of time. We're operating that way we don't we don't realize we're swearing in our own crack. Sending your own ideas were swimming in our own bias weaving and not all the time and we're not aware of it and having a coach like you or me or do working with like us is a way full any of us to to to see what we can see now. I'll bring this. And i'll make it really personal so everyone can see you know i believe that you should. You shouldn't sell what you're not willing to buy so as an example. I have an advisory board josh. This guest right now is on that advisory board. There are seven people who are on their advisory board. And when i'm feeling so i feel like i need a break through our need to shift of. I'm going to call those people together. And i have and we get together and we're going to examine things that are probably not gonna be comfortable for me to do but i'm swimming in my own bias and it's really easy for me to go well i- fabulous or crap and i think this is one of the things about the mind. Heard me talk about this many times before. Listener viewer is that the mind works in polarity. You're you're the best things in sliced bread your abaga crack and you'll never be anything and if you have an advisory board if you have a great coach if you have people who can see what you're swimming in making guy you and this is the value of hiring somebody like just wipe the top executives. Hire somebody like justice. Because you and i have this laser ability to see what other people are not willing to say. Well that's very kind of you. Yes it's true but not all coaches are created equal do point and not all leaders are either and that's why the work that we do requires us to really assess organizations in leaders and individuals before we engage with 'em similar to what we were talking about before to ensure that they're ready to go there or at least have the ability to show up if we go to that place number one number two You know a lot of people hire coaches because it's a. It's a check on the box of things to do. From a development standpoint specially in large organizations and as a result. A lot of coaches. And i'll be bolden saying this Take their foot off. Guess they're more I'll say that they're. They're okay with collecting the money And they will reserve themselves as to how far or when to engage or push a leader on something now. I know that that could be seen as a very testy comment that i made. But i think it's important to understand that you know. Every coach is different. Every person's different every engagements different and dobbin iowa. We have a very similar methodology in terms of cutting right to the core. What's root cause. And then let's address. Some people dance around at thirty thousand feet to get warmed up and then dropped down to a lower altitude So it's really just about engaging the coach and the individual and understanding you know. Are they willing to go from their heads of their heart. And how how. Soon how fast Right now i think that's a very good point It's it's certainly been my own challenge. Is that i think that not only does the quote. Coach need to have Courage but so does the postal where coaching and sometimes as coaches. We think that we don't have to have the courage but we have to. Have the courage push through particularly when you do and high profile individuals because that's really good on my resume that i'm working with chali. Who is the ceo of xyz company. But johnny needs to be pushed. A you know you had some similar conversations. But i was. I was working with a with a lay years ago. And she said something to me. And i just leaned in a lot of facial need to notice that you do know you're full of shit right and she she like she. She was quite shocked and she said dumb. Nobody speaks to me like i said. Maybe that's the problem exactly. And she said what do you mean said. We'll everybody's blowing smoke is good. How are we supposed to get to the truth..

Almost five thousand nine hundred meters in thirty thousand feet so you're not really easy but of course sleeping all day in africa is basically impossible. I was looking up at six in the morning.

"With an incredibly serious effort to figure out exactly what went wrong. And what are the aspects of this case that you know might have provided warning signs and really get a real epidemiology of this phenomenon. And i don't know that we're not doing that but i. I don't believe that we're doing that. And it's something that we really understand a lot better he the that airline crash. You referenced. the germanwings flight. Where were pilot is seems all but certain intentionally crashed the plane at me. That's one of those cases where this is a a sort of suicide. Most people have never even thought about raymond. There's one of the most horrific things you can imagine but it's you can see how it's very odd case whereas you could see someone being you know i would imagine in this case. Suicidally depressed someone that condition might be capable of doing something like that added. Gotta think it presents. Psychologically as different than arming and showing up at a school and shooting people different act. It is in fact they more murderous one but it is a more one in some ways from the you would imagine from the point of view of the pilot right pilots. Experience is he's just committing suicide right and obviously he knows he's got a couple of hundred people on the plane with him who he's going to kill but you could imagine that there's some state the human mind where all of those deaths are really a an afterthought and there's no kind of murderous rage needed to motivate the instantaneous murder of hundreds of people Whereas there would be. If you're going to start killing people with with club you know out in the world Or shooting them one by one and or at least it does strike me as it. The method of creating harm really does select for a different population of people who would be capable of causing that harm. Yeah there'd be a squeamishness that the pilot wouldn't have to overcome here that you know exactly yeah. Getting into the gritty business. Killing people would have to overcome here. There's no the moment you've bought into your y you want to commit suicide anyway right and you. For whatever reason you're happy to kill a lot of people in the process but after that there's no is all hypothetical there's no up close and personal encounters. There's no conflict is just a plunge out of the sky with you at the controls and this is this is analogous to different actions in times of war right. It's just it takes a different kind of person to just drop a bomb from thirty thousand feet knowing all the while beneath that bomb there are hundreds or even thousands of people who are dying. That's different than you know. Trench warfare or any other sort of conflict that.

I've got enough returning guys. Remember what it was like so really quickly. You worried about your guys. Some kind of curious about like this overall view of you. You know that whole thirty thousand feet thing. Whatever gonzaga's the top seed understandable their unbeaten. There's a lot to like about them. But you know the narrative if there's one rap against it's the conference play in you play a really rugged conference it really rugged conference. I'd argue that that's going to get ready for the ncaa tournament. Do you think that that is a mark against zag that they don't play in a conference like that. It didn't that hurts them. Come tournament time. Well i i have to hand it to fuel and that he schedules as best they possibly can in the preseason conference and i think he would be the first one to tell you if not a block charge call That went their way. We lose by five. It would have been a one point game and anybody can win. And i know a few we well enough to know. He would've said he's absolutely right. And it was shown over and over and over and over and over on tv. So anybody who watched the game or watched after the game knows that so it's It's kind of a rallying point for us and that our guys know that we had an opportunity to tell you. There's this may variables in our game. I think mark few. I don't care what anybody says. Or what coffee coaches in. This guy can flat out coach. I think the guy's an unbelievable coach who built an unbelievable monster right where he is so finally like. I've heard you'd say so many times says to me like your dad. Doodads a legend but he got out too soon. And i know you're worried about your next game but we get a little older. We think about things. Have you ever thought about like the way you want to go out like. In every in every sport guys almost never get out on their own terms. Do you give that very much. Thought how it ends how you go out when you go out when it's time how will you know when it's time i honestly don't know i honestly don't know and i and again and you know this. I've been blessed. I blessed to be around The greatest coaches wall time with them while they were coaching and then when they had retired and moved on and did other things and i never really got a good answer. Them and i don't have a good answer for you. That's why i keep asking. I kinda applies to my own life like. I don't wanna stop either. I'm like you. i don't wanna stop this still fun.

Indoor Farming With Jackie Roberts Of Appharvest
"Okay. So we've all seen greenhouses interviewed domino olen for example who runs the greenhouse at george mason university in virginia about how her facilities providing food and even spices to the university's food service and see greenhouses with just flowers like it were states and other properties and now we see cannabis plants being grown in greenhouses. But what about greenhouses on a commercial scale and ones that recycle water do not use toxic. Fertilizers or get more out of the acreage than tenting and outdoor farm would right. Well that's what my guest today says there novel. Indoor farm will actually do so. Let's find out how it works. I'd like you to meet jackie. Roberts chief sustainability officer at ap harvest. Jackie has been in the sustainability spaces. I said for probably twenty five years including in the same role chief sustainability officer at the carlisle group which is investment company and as senior director of the environmental defense fund. Or where. I first met her probably about ten years ago. I think it was right. She earned all her degrees from yale. Smart cookie that she is including a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and to help them manage degrees one from the yale. School of management and the other from the school of the environment without further ado welcomed green captions radio jackie. And thank you for joining us. I'm so excited. Thank you down. It's great to be here. Oh you're welcome. you're welcome. Congratulations on your new role at app harvest. Give us an overview of the indoor farms. How does app harvest actually work. Where they you know. where is it located. I chance in appalachia but give us a little more details. You know kind of what you're growing give us give us the proverbial thirty thousand foot view app harvest. I think is a really unique company in that are core product which is healthy vegetables is combined with a very sustainable climate. Resilient way of growing those vegetables and we're doing it in appalachia where the opportunity for job growth and economic development is really appreciate The the core product is a chemical pesticide free In in our first large greenhouse which you can see a picture of in my background but at sixty acres for those who can't see it Is a growing tomatoes and chemical pesticide free. Gmo free because the way we can grow in a closed system enables us to use biological pest approaches to control pests and disease and also a lot of trained workers and other interventions that can prevent outbreak. So we you know as a mother with three children knowing that what's coming out of our greenhouses is zero. Residue is a real attribute that i value. But how we grow it in your introduction spoke to it is we are very climate resilient in their storms that the that recently hit we had some employees that had trouble getting to work other people had to pitch in. We had one employee show up on their tractor to make sure they could get to work But you know we really did incredibly well in terms of being resilient. We had all the things we needed. We were harvesting on time stuff was getting out to the markets and it was a real testament to this strategy as an important part of the mix of different types of agriculture and When when we're growing We are able to use one hundred percent rainwater. We have a system of irrigation. That is set up where the rainwater is captured on the top of our sixty roofs it stored in a retention pond. And then we bring it into the greenhouse with a little bit of filtration through sand and you'd be late and that water re circulates. We don't ever a released anything into the atmosphere. The nutrients are put into the water and stay in the water until we need to add more. We can measure very precisely. It's a space where a has really enabled us to do very precise measurements and the plants. Exactly what they need. We do Nanotechnology with the water. Because bringing more oxygen into the water enables the plans to absorb the nutrients even better but all of that is is a closed system. And you know when when. I started in chemical engineering. The reason i went into chemical engineering is a wonderful professor. Who said if you care about environmental problems you should study chemical engineering because you learn how system works and where all the pollution comes from and how it's released to the environment

"Back to the podcast. Amy louise's on the hot seat. Amy party doing and thank you for doing this. Hey it is great to be here. You know it's great to be anywhere that sort of imaginatively outside of my little box. I feel like you know the mind was trapping zilt knocks every day marcel. Day luisa. There's so much to talk about. And then little intro. I did there was talking about how multifaceted you are in all the things that you're involved in you and i have had the pleasure of being on on events together and the past kind of how we we've connected and i'm always off your your will your professionalism for one because you approach everything very like what's next. How do we do this. Boom but then also your management of events in the emceeing side of it. I wanna start. I wanna backup from all that and just start with who you are right. So you're you're add one of those cool how hollywood cocktail parties talking to random people and they say hey how you doing what is it that you what would you say you know. I used to say a whole bunch of stuff. And now i just say i'm a digital storyteller because you know it used to be filmmaker and then it was video producer and small business owner and entrepreneur. And there's a lot of different things rolled into it. But really i think we're all digital storytellers now in different modes with different tools. Yeah i agree. I agree and we've talked about that. A lot on on the podcast just in terms of storytelling or lack thereof in some cases in in the world of let's call it amateur and advanced amateur content creation videography etc in the photography side. Which is the world that i play in. Mostly people that that are amazing artists. Just amazing on the creative side and the technical side you know the post production side but a lot of them lacked. That story element like why. Are you taking this picture of this bug or why are you. Taking the picture of this beautiful landscape all that when you're teaching and when you're explaining this sort of the art of digital storytelling. How do you box that. How do you get people out of that mode of hey everything. It looks good. It's a pretty picture into. Let's let's talk about something. Well you know it all starts with the audience Right often starts from themselves and whatever's going on in their world right so i work with a lot of corporate communicators nonprofit communicators and they're all know they're thinking like we have to put so and so on camera you know or we have to produce this event or we have to get donations from these people but we have to kind of flipping around as storytellers and say well. What's going to draw the audience into this. Why why will they watch this. There is so much content out there and we all know it right. I mean there's so much competing with everything we're doing including you know a lot of frankly garbage content and something really retaining on tiktok and videos. My kids watch and everything else. So what can we do to make. The audience. Want to come and be part of the story. That's the first question. The answer has nothing to do with the tech at all right. Yeah work backwards. You know you you don't you don't decide to. Hey look i have some flower. What can i do with that flower right. It's more of my. I want to bake a cake. What do i need a big that cake. Right ninety flour salt so so it should. Here's a pointed question so should artists. And i'm using the word artists because we're encompassing digital right so should artists look at the things that they're creating from a thirty thousand foot view of an overall story. Kind of like you know. The marvel cinematic universe. Marvel has built this giant universe and then they put characters in it that do things should photographers and and other content creators artists do that. Just play in their own little world or should it be siloed inched right well. I think there's a couple of different answers to that question. The first one is Why are you telling the story sometimes Especially when i work with my not for profit clients and we're telling a story to basically make people cry and big checks ultimately it's because something needs to happen in the world right. We're trying to tell a story that that somebody needs to hear some. You know somebody who needs water in a small town in africa somebody who needs you now to save the whales somebody who are some compelling story out there and we feel like it hasn't really been told her it hasn't been told in this way so so the first question is why. Do you want to tell that story

And despite all this. I was really shocked to see that there weren't any injuries or deaths and i was like how can a volcano erupted. Nobody gets hurt. But i found my answer. When a few paragraphs later. I read quote at regularly erupts but also serves as a popular tourist destination. Some travelers visit just to see the eruptions. The volcano was active almost once a year so in essence built far enough away in the even take tours on route. That's far enough away that they can still do it while. The volcano is erupting.

These last few days is that i'm i. I really found myself like enjoying it in a way that basically i wasn't projecting my expectations of like seventies jackson browne onto it. It's so clearly in the eighties that it's there's something liberating in great about that. You just like you're just in the album you know. The bird's eye view is an amazing thing. Isn't it when you that perspective and you can actually get above everything and look at it from thirty thousand feet. It's you know when when you're listening to that record in the moment and nineteen eighty. Three i was i was seventeen years old. I was getting ready to graduate high school and i. It sounded like you know having heard hold out and there was so many things on hold out that i loved you know i. I didn't see it as a huge departure. From running on empty or the pretender or those other records. Because i was still focused on jackson as as as a lyrical craftsman and somebody who really really dug deep to to try to find something you know to say so when when lawyers came out for me i it sounded like a contrived attempt to to be modern and it. You know i kind of feel like. I came to it from a similar place that you did. You know it listening to it now. It doesn't sound as dated as i thought it would when i went back to revisit it You know there are. There are some sounds on the record that you know like some of the sense patches and stuff like that that you know you listen to it and you go. Yeah that is definitely pre d.c.

Why am i feeling that way. And that kind of situation that way caroliina said at the end of the day if it is bad for my quality of life to be interacting with them or i find that i am just not the right coach for them for whatever reason that it is okay to let them go. It's just a matter of like the groups not doing your job and blaming the clients like that because they're quote unquote lying in about what they're eating at the coach issue. That's something you work on. Not rowley sucks fire. That's when i have an issue by generally speaking. Yeah like if causes knots in your stomach to think about even having to deal with them that day. That's a problem for both of you. So it's not fair to them on certainly not fair to them either. So if in the best interest of everyone separately. So basically if you feel about your client the same way. I feel about math. Then it's probably. That's what i'm here. If you feel the way. I feel about math about your client. You probably want to let him go. I think there's a good point. I think these are good points in in terms of figuring out what should be done in. What shouldn't be done. It sounded wrap it up. So i like to do something really quickly. I'm just going to sort of. I wanna look into the things. You can do proactively because we've all stepped in this minefield to right. We've all made mistakes in our intake process that causes to end up with someone that we probably shouldn't have work within the first place so jotted down. No swing kettle was talking. That's where we've come to twenty two. And one i'm now taking notes from catalina bell modest to my life i don't i never thought this day would come but but the first thing is being clear about how your workouts going to happen. Keto say she had declined to allow the new every day. She wanted a what. Joe dow calls entertainment load. Turn in the perfect term. I have used that shutout the dow. They'll use that term with like eighty five clients. Since i heard it. You know. I don't do entertainment. I'm here to get your goal so be clear about how your process actually works when you're actually going to be training. Make sure that they know how it goes and even get him to repeat it back to you number. Two on the issue of my pacemaker. Client sure that you get all pertinent medical information and you drill down for the facts. Don't let them cast. I'm doing pretty good or now. I got no issues like if you have your park you in front of you what you should have. That's another topic for another time. Rundown it thoroughly make sure you understand. I think that would tap into sort of psychological challenges sue. Because you're sort of not equipped for that either and the third thing that i've run into is issues with food because that happens a lot like food seems to be the most challenging thing that i deal with so i like to get a and this is something we do. Not level too. I just sorta always get a three day food log. And i know that my seem off topic but i like to get them to write down what they've eaten during the course of three days before i start working together it really helps me understand things. They may not be specifically honest as you'd like for them to be up front because it's a lot again it's like when you have someone clean your home invariably you're going to clean the house before they come over to clean it because you don't want them to think that you need people clean your home. That's how people sort of human nature right. That's that's what people do with trainers and coaches all the time. They're going to be much more likely to sugarcoat their situation than the auto blatantly. Say i've been on cheetos every night behind the cabinet door but it can be helpful to get that i drop to books to neither one of these are written by jonathan goatman. Don't tell them. I don't tell them. I said that he's not here. He doesn't need to know we can do whatever they want. He's he's got a rally prison in mexico. Make it a shank right now to to brush anyway. So you'll be fine he williams. I'm sorry a shift. I think it's a shift when you make it out of toothbrush It's a shake when you make it out of metal object really case. I'm sure he knows the difference by now but in any case two books one is motivational interviewing maybe even particularly motivational interviewing for fitness and nutrition professionals. Great book to read so that you can get past some of those sticking points when you think you're dealing with the difficult client that you wanna fire like the people in our group who say all get rid of 'em what you may be doing is just under to ambush point. Motivational interviewing is a great book. For that and the other book that are highly recommend is crucial conversations. It will give you a methodology for having those uncomfortable conversations in a way not threatening and non judgmental as sensitive by your client. They talked about adding the pool of shared meaning in that. It's a great technical book if you don't have a natural disposition that keto has where she doesn't have an issue adding these big emotion driven conversations crucial conversations is a great book for you to have anything else from either a few ladies. They adhere filling. Good we are now vascular early and set expectations. I yes yes boundaries boundaries boundaries early.

This is a truck you on a drive because it delivers performance in a way that no other truck can match and a happens to zero emissions. Two things in particular. I share with you that we haven't really talked about before terrain mode one pedal driving in the bose electric vehicle sound enhancement technology in terrain mode the gmc hungary offers one pedal driving for precision handling at low speeds routing and rock crawling. It combines the fine control of the immediate torque provided by the propulsion system and the friction brakes to deliver a level of modulation that is beyond anything. We could deliver from gas or diesel powered engine. It is a smooth experience providing finally power control that can dominate the most difficult terrain. If you will love the power off road wait until you try it on road watts of freedom mode builds an entire experience around that zero to sixty sprint. The double press of the traction control button triggers a request to acknowledge you were about to do something. Special acknowledgment causes the vehicle to lower in the battery electronics. Temperatures to be optimized in preparation for full power delivery. The driver coach tells you to apply the brake as the seat and the sub woofers start to shake then you apply the accelerator and once you reach the required levels. You let the break. Oh hold on. I've experienced the thrill of jumping out of a plane. Thirty thousand feet. In my opinion. This is better. But how do you create the sensory explosion to accompany. Motors turned up to eleven. We worked with boz boz electric vehicle sound enhancement. Technology makes its debut in the gmc incorporates. Guitar riffs high frequency feedback and inspiration from formula motor to communicate the sensation of power. And torque that you've unlocked and wants to freedom is a truly immersive sensory experience. Brings you in direct contact with your vehicle. And we can't wait to share it with you later this year. If the gmc is power dominance the cadillac lyric is the artful integration of technology for most intimate driving experience introducing our new face of cadillac. The lyric is an uncompromising suv the embodiment of cadillac innovation and a showcase of technologies. You'll see repeated over future cadillac vs. We took advantage of the quiet. That comes with altium powered to curate an entirely new sensory experience and the inspiration of vip's electrical bandwidth to reimagine what it means to be connected to your vehicle. It starts as you approach the cadillac. Lyric layer of technology and choreography of light. That draws you inside and makes us very intimately your vehicle recognizing its driver. The lyric prepares the cabin for the journey. Continues that rhythm of light from the exterior to the interior. Once you're inside you understand what we mean. By artful integration the curved three three inch diagonal led display provides a customizable user interface with the capability to display one billion colors. We worked with territory studios and right point to companies with unique experience and creative strategy design and technology to help challenge expectations and bring cadillacs vision to life. And while we've announced that the gmc hummer e will leverage epic games unreal. Engine us to make fortnight and this keynote we can announce that we will also be using the technology and the cadillac lyric to bring display information to life and engaging three d. perspective that learning technology continues into the dual plane augmented reality heads up display that incorporates navigation directly into your field of view and combined with our next generation supercrew driver assistant technology helps provide confidence in control. My role general motors is lead designer for choreographed experiences. In addition to cadillac lighting that role did not exist before electric vehicle design opportunity to rethink our relationship with our vehicles. Now it signals a new future for the interaction of technology and the senses if the cadillac lyric is the new face of cadillac innovation. I want to introduce its ultimate expression. The all new cadillac. Celeste iq working on the cadillacs. Elastic is a designer's dream. The architecture the altium platform carved out new space and gave us the freedom to integrate more technology. The result is a dramatic presence with the low profile and railway proportions each vehicle offers a curated selection of materials which are crafted by hand for the ultimate luxury experience and with all wheel drive four wheel steering and a full glass roof. It's celebrates the extraordinary cadillac. Elastic extends the are full. Integration of technology. You already saw in the lyric but reaches new heights. That roof will be our first to feature four quadrant. Suspended particle device smart glass allowing each occupant of the vehicle to set their own level of transparency while the ten of the glass colors to match the ambiance and the mood of the interior that equal an individual experience for each occupant will be a signature aspect of the cadillac celestica. The driver and front seat passenger enjoy a pillar to pillar display. That brings the outside inside while rear seat. Passengers have personalized entertainment screens. With active privacy and council screens that separate individualized comfort settings from entertainment displays to minimize distractions. Cadillacs elastic represents the are full. Integration of technology to reimagine what it means to be a passenger. We can't wait to reveal more morrison. Mary barra by talking about their excitement about the future of electric vehicles. I hope that what we've shared with you today. Gives you the sane confidence and excitement about our future of electric and autonomous vehicles that we all share at general motors confidence that the pieces are now in place.

Confirm this its first. High altitude test could take place as soon as tuesday is elon. Musk probably described. The test will see the starship reach as high is fifteen kilometers. Fif thousand feet. A live stream of the event on youtube is set to become available. Seventy m and the extra time in the test is dynamic. Okay so maybe not at nine. Am so seventy m. excuse me seventy of texas time. Let me click on this goes. There was a link. I think it was nine. Am eastern which makes sense So alon must've things taking a little longer and So yeah so it starts at nine. Am my time. I just set a reminder on it. So i watch on youtube so You can go over to n.

Catherine Sherlock On Moving From Overwhelmed To Empowered
"Nice Guy Community welcome back. So today we are focused on moving people from overwhelm to empowerment and to make the MAC side of your potential as a person and both as a leader as well. So Catherine Sherlock, she plays on the edge of human potential and focuses on elevating the leadership conversation and leadership from the inside out. So she operates in the realm where many are too afraid or too. Distracted to go elevating lives and leadership in the process I'm really excited to talk to her today. She comes through a source through through Michael Hand I think over at over it barefoot wine. So I'm excited to have you here Catherine welcome to the show. Thank you doug. It's great to be here. So how'd you get hooked up with that with that whole hand guy? Do you remember? you know I think it might have been through Lincoln actually. Wow that's terrific. We and now we kind of we have a good connection. So I really enjoyed talking to him. Michael's come on the show a couple of times and and he and his partner Bonnie Harvey. Of course, everybody knows them from some of the past episodes they started barefoot wines and and turned it into a a eight and a nine figure business and did a great job with that. So you come through a very high source. So Catherine appreciate appreciative that you were here today and thanks for being here and and talk in your topic and your Azzoni of genius today. Hang Stack. It's great to be here. So let's talk a little bit about one of the areas where I think that many entrepreneurs may not focus specifically on, but it's an area that I think that We are remiss if we don't spend some time on it and it's talking about the world of leadership. So can you share maybe before we get into the actual topic for the sake of our our entrepreneurs that are in our community? Can you share what your span on leadership is and how they got to be something that you became an expert in? Yeah, you know I I come come from probably an unusual path I was an environmental and sustainability. Consultant. And I did that for a long time and I have a master's in that area. and. You know. I do have a desire to change the world and impact the world and I guess that's why was in that career to start with. But yet I kept finding that it wasn't wasn't having the impact I, wanted to be having. I wasn't able to open up to conversations. I really wanted to be having and when things came to a point where I had to kind of shift in what it was in my career. I ended up turning conduct my personal life and what I had been doing in my personal life. And that mixed with some new areas like organizational development, which which I moved into as I was in sustainability consulting. Just just need. Gid from from clients. And I started to realize that you know a lot of our challenges start from the inside. And yet we so often focus on especially as leaders in business, we focus on solving them from the outside. And it's not your best leverage point. So before you take a deeper dive into outside versus inside, can you maybe just take a thirty thousand foot approach and maybe what some of the things that we're working on that are maybe Say Wrong and leadership because there's so many different styles of of of leader in types of leaders that are out there and they're so many different ways in which we can lead. But what are you saying is some of the common pitfalls within the realm of Leadership Today Well in leadership development. It's based on trade theory a lot, and that means that somebody goes out and maybe they do some research on some leaders or maybe they just come up with a list of sort of must have characteristics. And then they go in and they say, Hey, these are the must have characteristics i. mean you seen those articles all the time of the year that ten, the twenty the I saw one that was one, hundred and one. Hundred one must have characteristics leader. And I think it's so backwards to who we are and. What actually brings out our best selves our best leadership abilities. it's that trying to adopt something that makes us feel like impostors. Instead of. What I really think that we're. Were meant to do is really deepen into our own personal gifts. And then you connect to then you're not trying to inspire anybody then you're inspired yourself. And your teaching other people how to inspire themselves.
Can the Otto Aviation Celera 500L Deliver on Efficiency Promises?
"In our engineering segment, we're going to chat about first off the auto aviation Celera five hundred L. which their companies calling the most fuel-efficient commercially viable passenger aircraft in the world. Now if you were to if you're going to go back to elementary school and draw fish, were you make like the big loop and then you make the tail that's essentially what is aircraft looks like. And so it does look strikingly different looks kind of like a blimp it's got a you know a rear pusher propeller got some really long thin than wings but all these things have a very specific purpose. They say it extensively utilizes lamb and our flow over the fuselage wing and tail and that it can glide one hundred, twenty, five miles at thirty thousand feet, and so obviously with all this glide, you know the ability to glide so far. It's extremely fuel efficient. So Alan, you say this is almost like a rebirth of a previous jet is that true? If he remembers the Lear Fan in Lear Fan was bill lear late in his life Bill Lear. Was Building an aircraft out in Kansas I. Think it was Kansas. Composite Airplane and it looked very similar Lisa. had a just kind of a fish shaped fuselage propeller on the back and not as highly lambda flow wing at the time just because he didn't have the computers to do that stop but. Had A two engines. pity six kind of turboprop engines that were driving I think to recap inches ever driving through a transmission, a single propeller, the back. And? Just. The era in which it was being developed, it had difficulty the transmission had difficulty and or make it out carbon-fiber, which was really knew at that point that's before the the the beach starship in came out. So the be starship was sort of an outgrowth of the Lear Fan all the engineers that were around the learfield kind of jumped over to beach at the time to make the starship, they make the the premier in the horizon and everything else after that But. The aerodynamic design. Has Been a constant for a while. So it's not like this auto aviation is a necessarily a new idea as much as they have now, the computational power to do the Lamido flow thing and to make it super slippery to be very efficient, which biller didn't have during his lifetime. So, it's sort of a combination of old old school sort of Basic fundamental design I e one two engines so he can fly Keith propeller turning, but you want all they are an amick efficiency can get because you have the computers to do it. That's what it looks like to me So It doesn't look and I know the thing about here's the thing about. Aircraft shape I always find fascinating is there is a little bit of human psychology into the way that they signs aircraft. that. When you're putting down the amount of money to buy an airplane, some of that is a cool factor. Looks Cool Piaggio has been in this marketplace for a while. Piaggio is a very similar shaped aircraft. It's a pusher plane also in has kind of cool factor to it and it's talion in its is got all these things. So what you saying on does have go factor does not I don't know if this thing has cool factor is it look sometimes it's by sometimes by paint and so here's the thing that I knows I just painted all white, right? Yeah. Right and if I'm if I'm a marketing guy or marketing person and the guy. Giving anybody. Marketing Person At. A new aircraft company I want my aircraft of to be the coolest looking thing that anybody has ever seen. I want to to look like a Formula One race car that's what I'm looking. For and right now, it looks like a a bloated fish a little bit which is not particularly appealing to the eye. It is very efficient, Amex very efficient, but they gotta find a way to make it look cool also.

This is especially important for new to this if you are. are dealing with new clients or you have new teams joining your team. The first thing everybody's thinking about when they meet you is, is this person? The real deal? Can I trust them? Will they deliver? Are they the leader I'm looking for? Is this the business or client I want to work with and that all boils down to are you credible? Let's make sure the answer is, yes. So I'm GONNA pass it onto onto, teach you today's guest teacher lesson, but I'll be back to rabbit today's episode and share with you that linked to get the free, first chapter of allowance book cracking the Leadership Code, but for now takeaway on. Hello there, my name is Alla. Pumpkins. Thank you for joining me today. Today. You how to increase your influence and impact five building your credibility. So, let's get down to business. I'd like to start by giving you thirty thousand foot high level overview of our lesson today. We'll start by looking at what credibility is. Then take a look at why it's so important, and then look at the three biggest actions you can take to build your credibility, but let's start with a story about a leader named Clint. Clint is the CO founder of a software company that's grown rapidly over the last three years. He's smart outgoing and he's great in front of customers. In fact, the sales team is nicknamed Clinton Midas because everything he touches turns to gold. However for all of Clint's strengths, he has this tragic flaw. He's consistently late for meetings ten, twenty, thirty minutes. Late is par for the course with Clinton sometimes even more. In Clint is also the master of excuses as to why he's late. He'll say, well, this customer meeting went long or this operational issue needed my time or gosh, the traffic from the airport was horrible. However is much as Clinton tries to explain and excuse his way out of it. His team is just not having it anymore. It's having an impact on engagement morale. In fact, two of Clint's direct reports have quit in the last week. And the sad truth is clint doesn't have a clue as to why and the reason because Clinton has never stopped to recognize the importance of credibility. So let's start and take a look. What exactly is credibility. Credibility comes from the Latin word credibility, which means worthy to believed. Credibility, is the main ingredient in trust and trust is the glue of human relationship. Turns out credibility shares the same etymological root as the word credit, which means alone or a thing entrusted to another. So, let's take a look at why that is so important. So if you want to influence others, you want them to do something because it's important to you. So, how did they decide if they're going to do it? Well, it's based on your relationship credit score. If you have a high credit score, you've proven yourself as a low risk, high return person and the other person is likely to help. They think you're a good investment. However, if you're a high risk low return person forget about it, they're not going to help fact is people own their own talents and skills, and they only offer them to you on loan. So having a high level of credibility or relationship credit score is your way of proving that you're worth loaning to. For people to truly follow you. They have to believe you're worth following. And how do they decide it's through your actions or is Albert Schweitzer the Nobel Prize winner. Put it. Example is not the main thing influencing others. It is the only thing. So. If you want to increase your influence and impact and others, you need to grow your credibility. To take a look at the top three things that you can do to make that happen. The first. Showing up on. Time to lesson from Clint. If I could only choose one practice to grow my credibility. I'd say show up on time you should treat your performance in this arena is a big deal. It is think about it for a moment. Timeliness is the easiest and most visible thing to measure sure either here or you're not. Fact is lateness is about much more than just a few wasted minutes. In life being on time is the most basic social contract that of presence. When you're late, your behavior sends a clear message. I have other things going on. That are more important than you are. And when you're on time, you send a clear message that you value the other person. So you to choose what's the message that you WanNa send and know that your actions speak a lot louder than your intentions. The second thing that you can do to grow your credibility is to do what you say you're GONNA do. You see when you open your mouth and promised to do something you cr- create expectations in those who are listening to you for them that promise is now this open psychological loop of tension that seeks resolution and it stays open nagging at them as they think, will they follow through or not? The fact is people crave closure. So every time you do what you say you're going to do you strengthen the connection between your words and your deeds, which is exactly what's meant by walking the talk when you walk your talk your seen as congruent and when you don't. You're not. You're out of integrity something's off, which is what Ralph Waldo Emerson Express when he said who you are speaks. So loudly, I can't hear what you're saying. See Doing. What you say you're going to do is the precise deficit of accountability. have. You ever wondered where accountability comes from. It comes from the world of accounting in finance. There's a balance sheet, there's on one side assets. The other side is liabilities and the to need to equal each other to be in account. Well, in human behavior, the two sides of your behavioral balance-sheet are what you say you're going to do. And what you actually did. And when you follow through and do what you say, you'll do the two sides balanced out and you're accountable. So a top tip around this. Do you say what you're GonNa do is write things down. Keep a written record of what you promised to do your way better off being someone who under promises and over delivers than the other way around. This means you have to be clear on your commitments and also be willing to say no from time to time. So. We've looked at our first two actions. Showing up on time doing what you say you're going to do our third one is around being consistent. This is the practice of doing what you say you're going to do not just once, but repeatedly multiple times over an extended period of time. When you start to build the deposits in that emotional bank account, your credit score goes up. The, no. One's going to throw you a party for showing up on time. However, the little things done over time compound and have a multiplier effect. As an example, take the CEO of Campbell Soup, a man called Doug. It now doug was CEO of Campbell Soup, for ten years and in his ten year period as the leader of Campbell's. Doug wrote Thirty Thousand Personal Handwritten. Thank you notes to his employees. Now, by the way over those ten years, Campbell's only had twenty thousand employees, and if you do the math, it works out to more than eight. Thank you notes per day seven days a week for ten years. Now, that's pretty incredible to me. Now, I'm not saying you need to start writing eight. Thank you know today, but I think Doug Conan's example of the power of consistently and showing how that multiplies and compounds over time is great. It's so easy in this world to think that we're too busy to do the important things. See if you WanNa know what a person values. Look at their calendar and see where they spend their time because that is the ultimate test of what you're truly valuing because ultimately, every action that you take will either strengthen or weaken your credibility and connection between. which either strengthens or weakens your influence and your impact.
Interview with Aaron Upright, cofounder of Zenhub
"I think it's important to recognize. That this is really hard problem to solve in that. There's multiple solutions. probably I have. I don't know. Maybe don't agree with that, but I think there's multiple solutions at depends on your team. It depends on You know what works best for your particular type of product. It's interesting that you are building a product that enables other people to build their products. Have you found that? The people who are using as in hub are building particular types of products. Are they building MVP stuff, or are they working more towards in the larger into the scale? Were there multiple iterations in what do you think is is kind of the sweet spot for your product? Yeah, it's a really good question. I think when we first started that our interpretation of who our audience would be as much different than it actually ended up being an. Now even completely different is. We've kind of grown as a business evolved our product as well. When we first started then how I think because of the way that we really integrated into source code management platform being hub. That this kind of style of project management could be really powerful war on teens that were really focused around in smaller products are really maybe focused around bringing products to market, had smaller development teams, and really just wanted to work in an autonomous way, but what we actually found that there was a lot of teams out there that were actually struggling to manage their. Their projects in a way that we're more connected to their code basin that didn't necessarily correlate with the size of the team or the complexity of the project. We started to see teams from all different sizes of organizations, all different verticals in industries that were really interested in using this as a solution to help bring project management closer to the code and so. It's. It's really interesting, you know. We thought that this would definitely be a a tool for the. Small to mid market companies, but really you know we have representation across a lot of very forward thinking startups, but also some massive massive customers in fortune, fifty fortune ten companies, even that are using this at a really transform the way that they're building software. So that's been been really exciting that we get to interact with so many different types of audiences in so many different types of companies, even that are building so many different things in so many different spaces makes total sense I think. It's helpful for people to know kind of what the philosophy is before we continue this discussion because I think we're going to get into some some important questions about for example, making estimates and you know establishing reference points and that kind of thing, so can you of given a maybe a thirty thousand foot view of what is the philosophy behind Zinn hub? Yeah, it's a great question. So I think to give a little bit of background around who we are as a tool on kind of what we do is while we are a project management solution. Really End to end. That's built in get hub in really that comes back to this core philosophy that we have is is. Our have of. How do we make life? It easy as possible for developers in allow them to really focus on that meaningful work. That's really a core part of our mission in that that concept of focusing on meaningful work is actually something that we've included in our mission as well. You know what I mean by meaningful work is. Is that type of work were? Were developers are actually you know coding and and spending time on that rather than updating project management tool in really wanted to take a lot of those really high friction parts of the process of writing and developing code or or developing software. We're having to go back and update project management tools to keep the organization informed in to kind of make sure that the. The project is moving in the right direction so a really core philosophy for us as a product is. How do we help? The people that are using our products spend more time doing that meaningful work more time doing the work that they love rather than having to update different tools and keep these systems and processes up to date for the rest of the organization.

Elevating Yourself & Your Team By Embracing Change
"We are in free treat today. Michael chastain now hold on a second I said I wasn't gonNA screw this up and immediately Michael. I messed this up. How bad is got to be for me as a host to screw this up and you know none of this is going to be edited out because we are all about showing genuine mistakes in the in the course of our Michael. Is that okay for us to do that love it? Let's keep rolling all right. So it's it's Michael Dietrich chest pain and I tried to understand exactly why that was all put together. Maybe he'll explain that to us again as we're recording maybe not. He's the CEO of Arc integrated in Organizational Consulting and professional coaching practice. Now let's take a little deeper dive with Michael. He's an author. He's a coach. He's a speaker. We're GonNa talk leadership or especially today going talk about change conflict resolution building a great culture and. I know that this is the time for that right now. Michael and his team focus on Human Development. And we all know the important work is completely related to the bottom line is well. So we're GONNA see how that is so. In addition to talking to Michael Nice Guy Community his writing can be featured and is featured in Time Money Entrepreneur. The Washington Post and his new book changes the busy professional's guide to reducing stress accomplishing goals and mastering adaptability released in two thousand. And Nineteen we're GONNA talk of the importance of the four letter word and it really shouldn't be a four letter word but it is. That word called change. Welcome Michael to the Nice guys on business podcast. Thank you so much. Doug screen to be here with you. Yeah well it was good. I figured my mom writes all intro. So did she do an okay job of writing that one? It was beautiful. She's done mom so she said to me Doug Jr one thing. I gotTa tell you. Just don't screw up on the on his name because if you do that you kind of lose right out of the gate and hoping I didn't lose your right out of the gate repeat People's interest. Maybe maybe so okay so minute. Let's start there because I think this is important you hyphenated because you were afraid to maybe go one side or the other now is through marriage through your parents. How how did that come Asian stir? Yeah my this is. My parents were real progressive. And they gave me each of their last names and You know I'm close with them. Both didn't have the her arc's choose one over the other so just stuck with what they gave me in. So that's where it comes from. Okay all right. That's cool very good so you couldn't side so you went to your mom and your dad and you said I'm just going to do the combination of both of these things. That's that's what they gave me so I stuck with it so let's talk a little bit about that four letter word that change where we are right now in the middle of this whole Cova crisis as we are recording this. So if you are listening back to this and we're four years in the future just know that this was a hell of a time so we're just GONNA dealing with it all now. There are so many different ways that people have to adapt to this change. So why don't we just I talk about how? Maybe you got to be an expert in this change thing maybe share a little bit about how you adapted your own business and then talk about those in our community too. So let's just talk about you becoming the expert in that space first of all. Yeah yeah happy to share that the The reality is I've I've always had an interest in in human development and inhuman change making so when I was in Undergrad I had a vision for going for a PhD or a Master's degree in industrial organizational psychology which sure a lot of listeners know about but for those that don't on it's basically looking at how human systems function in the context of a business and how to how to optimize those systems of people and so did all the course work and the and the prerequisites for that and got a corporate job out of out of school and taught me a lot did a lot of leadership. Coaching a lot of employee employer conflict resolution work some account management. It was really really informative time and it influenced me to WANNA take deeper dive into how and why we do. The things we do is people so I went back and got a masters counts sling and a license as a psychotherapist and I lived in the mental health world for a number of years Really in all sorts of capacities from managing teams of therapists to work in a hospital system. The jail system in the community You know working with conditions that ran the gamut from severe and persistent mental hall off disorder to Life Transition to addiction to really really all you know all spectrums of of mental health and It was really informative experience hugely valuable to the work that I do today. In so after a few years know continued with this interest in business and human systems and so made a pivot back to the corporate world and was in that world again for a couple of years doing training and Account Management and some coaching and it was a lot of fun and then the got inspired me to start my own practice in two thousand fifteen launched out on my own and today we do coaching and training facilitation for teams and leaders of organizations around the country and usually focused around the the elements of leadership. The that we feel are the most important which are things like emotional intelligence stress reduction and communication. And so. That's the that's the short thirty thousand foot story. Doug now that's cool and and we all know that all of those things are really really critical. You know obviously developing leadership. I had was fortunate enough to have John C. Maxwell on the show and you know talks. He spent an entire career dealing in In leadership so we know how important it is for leaders to be able to evolve and change and move and groove with whatever the circumstances. But let's talk about that as as we're all faced with this this big thing right now this you know world changing event with with this virus spreading all over the place. How challenging is it for an organization that doesn't have the skill set to to kind of pivot? How essential is it for them to really start to learn? These skills are and how detrimental is to their organization. If they can't learn to change and pivot I I I see it as a huge game changer. In potential you know You know opportunity to or opportunity unfortunate opportunity that one sees when they do this to potentially go out of business. Yeah absolutely you know it's interesting. I think I think as human beings the biggest opportunity we have is to get more comfortable with change and you know. That's that's really being emphasized right now with the coronavirus forced pivoting change. That goes on but the reality is is that you know whether it's this. You know catastrophe that Rin or something else down the road whether it be smaller Lard. The reality is that you know this this Illusion that we have that things are permanent. I in my opinion. One of the best things we can do is get better at adapting the circumstance. That's an innovating and getting comfortable change and to your point. There's a lot of opportunity when we are able to do that. and I think that right now you're absolutely right. We're GONNA see a lot of businesses reinvent themselves for the better. Maybe even come out of this thing in a way that is more successful than they went into it and then the alternative is is true as well those that really hold onto old paradigm and old methods of operating. I think that there's a strong risk and failure. And it's it's interesting because that parallel is so consistent with the general human condition that unless we change and adapt our growth is stunted and research in that show up in the business world right
"Talk US through the program that we are calling Arrow educate give me the the high level. Overview of what? That's all about all right. Well let's let's do it from you know kind of that thirty thousand foot view I I think we've all we've all seen the success of Young Eagles over the years When you look at you know what is now consistent fifty or sixty thousand kids a year that we fly. I think we've all looked at it over the years and said so what's next. How do we keep these kids engaged? How do we keep motivated? How do we keep them inspired We know that there's an awful lot of alternatives for kids To get involved in and to express interest in. But how do we keep it? You know we've little spark we keep that going and it was really. I think the genesis of Aero educate when we first started talking about it the way it was it was really how do we? How do we help that youth along that aviation journey? How do we keep him inspired? How do we keep them motivated? how do we not only keep them interested but also get their parents involved so that they support that journey and it's really about the journey so when you look at at? Aero educate what it is it's a web based platform it's got a number of different elements to it But it's really targeting youth parents There's an element in there for chapter leaders. There's an element in there for formal educators. We'll get into some of that detail I think in a in a in a few minutes but it's really designed to help pull a child Through or a youth through that aviation journey and and ultimately what we want is we would love to see Kids come out the other side of that With a deep strong interest in aviation and one that potentially leads down a career path And and that's kind of where we're headed with the program overall at this point so is it Would you describe it as we have the the Young Eagles Flight Plan? And that was You know certainly in the ten years I've been here. That was One of the first big steps. I think that I saw to say there's that internal question we're always asking okay. You've had your young eagles flight now. Now what so? The the flight plan with sports ground school chorus and some of the other offerings and stuff is is Is Arrow educate building on sort of beefing that up it really builds on that And it it kind of overall it. It begins to encompass a program like that as well You know those are what we've been able to sports as what we've been able to do with Are Providing the opportunity for kids during that first flight light lesson. All those are really important. Flight plan is very important elements not going away. It will stay in place. tied directly to the Young Eagles flight itself Garo educated in its in its concept is is a bit broader than that and so the existing programs that we have that our youth oriented. You can almost safe will fit inside this aero- educate platformer this concept that we're developing. Hell I think things are. I think the other thing that we're trying to solve for is that all these elements have been in existence. But how do we be more proactive in guiding that experience It's often been said that. Pilots Beget pilots. But if you didn't have a family member who helps Sh- to share with you. Here's what you can do. You can start building models you can do are see And then when you're sixteen ish You can start taking lessons But if nobody's there to help guide you down that path How do you know how to get to becoming a pilot? And that's what. Aero educate starts to solve for is It's an interactive an iterative Platform so Hell you have an experience The Arrow educate platform. Then we'll suggest additional activities that you can do and then I think the other rick the other thing that we should talk about two. There's a there's a badging component to this so that when you have that experience You can record it and then you can start working towards Specific badges you know the Like you made a really interesting point can talking about the the guidance and mentoring piece of this. It's it's very easy to say to look at the whole world of aviation and say the opportunities are are essentially limitless. However you want to participate You know if you're if you're a pilot there's all manner of different aircraft to fly and experience to have if you're involved in other ways. There's you know there's maintenance and design and dispatch and air traffic control and things like this so it's really easy to to look at a kid who who says. Well what can I do in aviation and an adult can just say well anything you want opportunities you're limitless and then you turn your back and walk away and the kid says okay. Great but can you give me a hint? Yeah so one of the working with the number of of potential industry partners on Arrow educate and one of the words. That has come up. We've begun to use it over and over and over is demystifying. How do we make aviation appear to be more attainable? More accessible for these kids rather than them looking at A potential career in aviation and Saint Point. That's really cool but I could never get there because I don't know how my parents don't understand it What aero educate is really all about is? How do we solve for that? How do we start to provide meaningful pathways and putting that in front of the kids and their parents so that they can actually see how you can get from point? A. TO POINT B. And that you can actually go do that I think it's also opening the door wider from an aviation standpoint parents That are not aviation oriented and kids that are not coming from that aviation oriented family but they may look at aviation and go well. I know there's pilots. There's air traffic controllers and there's mechanics but there's a much broader aspect of Aviation. That's out there That allows you to pursue almost any particular interests that you might have do it inside the aviation industry. Well how do we open that door And that's really part of what I you know I think aero educators again trying to trying to address and I think through that that as a leadership organization in the industry Ea As really position itself to be be the leader in in in the database and all the kids As Rick said earlier we've got about fifty to sixty kids fifty to sixty thousand kids. Each year that participate in the Young Eagles Program So our database. We're going to track and we were going to promote experiences. So after five or six years we probably are going to have three hundred four hundred thousand kids that we are kids and parents communicating with them on. We haven't heard from me for a while you know. Go to this museum or this event is going on within a twenty five mile radius of your Of Your Home. And that's where we hope to to really be able to move the industry and and Bring Kids and families If people are familiar with sales it's bringing them through a sales funnel and saying here's restart but here's where you can end up. Well I think you know you mentioned sales and I I've I've said this many times that we particularly to sort of newer co workers That that come to work at a and are are starting to understand our culture and and what our world is really all about and something. I will say that people frequently is that. We're not working at You Know Joe's laundry soap company trying to convince people that are laundry. Soap is better than than everybody else's we have a very very different sails need for want of a better term in that number. One people come to us because they they they have some love for what we're all about and you know we we share this love of aviation and we're not so much trying to Trying to sell them on something as as though I respect your use the term. Ken As we are trying to just show them look you. Can you can do this and It's not I don't want to say that it's an easy job but it's a very different job than just trying to say. Our scope is better than you know than the leading brand Which is great and that puts us in a wonderful position because we're starting from a place that sort of mutual agreement with our members that somewhere out there somewhere we all have a basic shared love of aviation even though The three of us have joked that are are styles of flying in the types of flying. We're interested in are are a little different right. Ken. That's correct. Some of US love to land on Grass Rick and And and some of US prefer a good hard surface. That's yeah but it's You know we're all under the same under the same tent so So the idea of a providing pathway to people who are On some on some visceral level. You know we're all already sold. But how do we? How do we take those along those next
The fantasy-sports and online gambling company DraftKings is going public
"Draftkings an SP tech or combining and they're becoming a public publicly traded company through this acquisition that's great explanation as a good explanation of why they did the deal from Dr king CEO and co founder Jason Robinson Dr bluebird TV team earlier today allowed us to do all three in one transaction so you know it's a bit of a complicated transaction but it was also stationed in the sense that we can accomplish all three objectives perfectly and do so in a pretty short time frame think about all the IPO bankers are like what well there but does it doesn't make sense from a business sense here and then in terms of these guys all coming together I think from a thirty thousand foot view it does I mean the the thing that Dr king's gets by merging with SP tech is you know that now they control and own all of the tech in the background right which is not true of a lot of sports gambling companies often times the company that's doing the risk analysis are offering the markets is some other company then the the name on the on the top of the website that you're using hi but now they save money on on that process and they can work with you know SP tech now draftkings they can get kind of exclusive access to what their markets look like and what they want to offer and if they want to do what we want to try something totally different the no one else is doing it's easier to do that when you own kind of the entire stack it's all in house exactly so in that regard that's great and the second thing which you heard Jason mention their tracking needs money right this is a a world where their competitors are you know flutter which includes FanDuel stars group paddy power but fair they're also competing with MGM they're competing with Caesar's these are much bigger companies that have more access to cash right and and Jeff kings needed the cash so this is also an answer to you know needing money to spend it to expand into a bunch of new states in the U. S. I'm curious to end all of those competitors that you just ran down the laundry list of when they saw this deal does it mean that they have to now make some kind of move to counterbalance it Gimme Carol there's been so much consolidation already have their their have all doing it already and and everybody is offering kind of something unique that they think is kind of the the catch all the solution so I'm sure they're old taking note of this I think draftkings becomes you know a bigger player long term in this space now that they have figured out this portion of their future right and maybe they were of about a week ago but you know there's been so much noise around draftkings and when they're gonna go public and how they were going to do it I think everyone kind of expected that this was gonna happen in some capacity at some point Evan is it taking off like everybody thought I mean everybody could not wait you know for the states to rules and you know all these rules that came down that finally made you online betting in sports betting you know a loud is it taking off like everybody anticipated I think the easy answer is is yes there there's been tremendous appetite for sports betting in the in the in the states that have legalized it and most people in is it is it will tell you that in the next couple years they expect the US to be the biggest sports betting market in the world where it's a little trickier is is for these companies right just like how they make money yeah just like one fan doing draftkings were competing in daily fantasy the cost to acquire new users is super high right tries so much being spent on marketing there's a lot being spent on lobbying each state you know New Jersey next to New York and Pennsylvania has different rules for operators than the other to do some operators can be in one state but not the other there's so much a little state by state specificity to to the way this is going so so I think the easy answer is that yes this tremendous appetite here that has not been under sold but I think it's been a little bit trickier than maybe some operators thought in terms of how to profit off it right out of the gate crystal looks pain so terms of the long term we get a deal like this structured did they wanna operated to try to make even more money or do they think at some point down the road they're able to flip this entity and make a capital gain for themself and if that is the case what needs to change in the space and ordered for the girls to take a meaningful leg up yeah I think that's a really good question what Jason will tell you right now because I asked him a sense of that same question this morning but this is this is their solution is their end game right to become a publicly traded company I keep this thing going for awhile there is going to be more consolidation in this industry for sure and whether that's at an acquisition of this new publicly traded Jeff king who knows what that looks like but I would not I don't think anybody would tell you that they think that the landscape the way it looks right now is the way it's going to look in five or six years when we have thirty five states on board and and a lot of these companies have figured out exactly how they make money how they don't make money and whether they want to be in this game at all but yeah I I think that this is the the short term solution for draft kings and with the long term solution looks like who knows but then there's a become so much consolidation that regulators get involved that's also good question I were certainly not we're certainly not there yet and we're kind of at this point where there is two factions in this world right you have the the the casinos yeah I'm GM you know Caesars they are obviously dominant in this world and they bring you know their rewards and their tremendous you know they're they're tremendous database of of users to to the table here and then you have you know companies like draftkings companies like flutter which is FanDuel and and paddy power and bet there and a lot of other European operators were kind of sweeping in without a brick and mortar location anywhere no presence in Las Vegas or kind of trying to do this on a state by state basis as well I don't think were were anywhere close right now to regulators hopping in right but it does certainly seem clear that there is interest from investors and getting involved in this and there is there there's a lot of properties out there beyond even just the four I just mentioned second there there's opportunity here for sure there's a
AirAsia opens a restaurant serving only airplane food
"Air Asia has opened restaurants arrest rather in Malaysia. So for people who couldn't get enough of their airline line food you can now go to a restaurant and order dishes is that are inspired. This is sentence. I thought I would never you. It's inspired by airline food. And they show a picture here of of the food being served in the kind of aluminum foiled trae that like you might get it on the plane. I don't know for sure that that's the way it is served there but it certainly makes the point for me. No I guess that is that is really how they're serving it. Is this something that that the three of you have really been longing for after every airline experience thinking. Hey where can I get some more of this wonderful food. God I think there's a couple of couple of airlines where I wouldn't mind having the first class meal. There's a few first class meals had. Of course I don't get to fly first class very often so I don't know about that but I I will say I would say like the first class. Yeah no it. It really doesn't but it does kind of solve That whole old ridiculous thing that airlines put out a few years ago where they said. Hey we got. I think there's John Hey we got a bunch of science together an apparent yearly. Your taste buds are completely different. When you're thirty thousand feet? Oh that's true and that sort of it's true an air system on an airplane but I don't think it's the elevation I believe. It's the humidity pressurization. Oh okay all right well. Whatever it is I always thought it was crap Yep and I still believe that no matter who tells it to me So it would be interesting to see if that food in a non humid non-precious right alright non elevated place actually tastes decent. So I've as well then maybe it's true. I have had experience because I went on a press trip with the the now l.. Late great Air Berlin in their headquarters in Dusseldorf for one of the two headquarters they had before they went under and they served. Does you know airline food and one of the things they weren't as you said by the way these flavors are going to be more bold than you're used to because we do have to to over flavor and so everything was more salty or the the curry verse which was their signature dish. was more more more curry And it was interesting to to try that experiment of what is airline. Food tastes like at altitude at sea level wherever we were so I have had that experience and they said Yeah we we do have to oversee some things because of that the science of it but light my theory is that it is more the humidity than it is pressurization or the or the altitude
Henry Dick Thompson on Why Smart Leaders Make Dumb Decisions
"Back for a third time is Henry Dick Thompson. I have to throw Henry in there just to make sure when people look for your book. Look they'll be able to find it right so Dick Thompson. SAUK warrior was on podcast to three and two zero four. If you haven't listened to those just going listen them immediately and you'll realize the magnitude of the fact that this individual is sitting here alive talking to me is just an absolute miracle so goalless mature three to four where you can hear about Dick's experiences as a SOG Zog team leader and team member in Vietnam where we left off was home from Vietnam and now checking in as a ranger instructor which for you was a great deal because you have the opportunity to take the lessons and you learned teach them to the Rangers and also home them for your own experience because you figured you were eight months away from going back the Vietnam yes so this is my opportunity to get ready and so I could be more focused next town and I could do a better job now when you said eight months what does it. What was that based on? What was that when you say I was probably going back over an eight months? What was that based on? At that time that was about to turn around rate. You you come back from Vietnam they give you a little time to recover an eight months or so. You're going to get orders to go back again. And you're now did you make captain yet or you still on my captors. Now you may captaining the you must be looking around the guys that you deployed with and that you knew I mean you must be missing a lot of guys now. I mean wounded killed or missing in action. This has got to be just a tremendous number number for you when I when I look at the ones that that I knew that I consider teammates. I mean we did things together. We knew each other. I I have a list that I run for thirty five names. Those are just the ones that I considered. You know my personal friends and teammates now it CNN. We lost a lot more people in that. I just I didn't know him very yeah well But just the time I was there you know I got thirty five games for and you got to have that in your back of your mind when you're training these young rangers. You know what they're getting into even if it's not sog you know you want to prepare them to the best of your ability for what they're interface. Yeah because I knew that time I mean they were going to Vietnam. I mean there. There was no doubt especially they made it through Ranger School I mean they were going so the the question for me was in addition to the personal things that I wanted to do like improve my skills. What could it do for these guys to help them have a higher chance of surviving? Once they get there so I can't even made my mission so you got you got the normal instruction from Arranger Instructor A-plus then I edit other things on and I said you gotTa do this learn how to do. This is how you talk. This is how you lead so they. They got a lot of extra coaching training whenever I led to a group And I just. I felt responsible to do that. What were some of the leadership was that you focused on teaching? The young Rangers Some of it was you know you got to be accountable and these guys. You got to be accountable. You've gotta take responsibility ability. If you're gonNA lead them you got to make sure you know what you're doing you gotta be physically fit. You gotta be mentally. You need to know the tactics techniques you need to enforce them. You need to encourage them. You need to build a team. You need to take care of them. You need to know everybody on your team team if you've got a platoon. You need to know everybody in the potassium and at that time. The army used to issue a little. Oh Green Notebook pocket-size notebook hardback. That you put in your pocket and you know I tell you need to have people in here you know. In in peacetime you need to know who they are. No something about him so you can relate to him when they were having problems and how to train them. You know the best know what they're weak areas are for how you can build them up. 'cause you're accountable for them they're your people and you're the guy that's the the leader you need to be the first one out here and You know for me. I'm not going to ask you to do something I won't do. I'M NOT GONNA go to you. Say Hop out the door. They are applying here. If I'm not going to do it I know I tend to to do more follow me. You know. I'm going out there. I'M GONNA do it too and I'm going to set the example for you. This is how I want you to do it. And so trying to get that through through to him and and trying to get through in terms of think of yourself as a professional. Thank about your medical doctor Dr Everyday. You should be reading learning studying getting better every technique that you know You should be trying to improve it. Every day is about practice Whatever it is you're doing a ask yourself? Is there somebody else better than you than you need to be practicing. Yeah you gotta get as good as the best. You want to be that person and you don't get there by just wishing hoping you gotta get out and take the action some of the things that you're going to be doing particularly if we if we think ranger special forces seal all steps a mindset some mindset you gotta think like that you can be in the greatest physical condition in the world all but if you don't have the mindset you can't do it and you guys are already seeing here Rangers go. How many of your buddies have already dropped out? When I went through ranger school we started out with two hundred and forty eight people? When we finished we had one hundred and seventy five actually make it to the end of the course? Seventy five others got a ranger down. Rest Emden so they're only seventy five rangers produced and it was mindset. It wasn't it. They were bigger stronger faster. They had the mental capacity to keep going on one meal today. You three hours of sleep at night. Keep pushing and still be able to think cognitively enough to put together a good tactical plan communicate doc plan execute that plan And it takes work and you need to be the leader so people follow you so why. Why whatever it is that? I'm going to do out there tonight. Expect you to do. I want to be doing it to the most of my ability. If you're going to jump out of an airplane airplane with a rope tied onto you to pull the parachute out. I'm going out from thirty thousand feet Halo. And that's that's what I do if you have to have you've Atlantic on the size of a football field to get into. I'll cut it down to a third of that and do it in the dark. Are you want you to say it can be done better if you beat me more power to you. Catch now what you've done just told me I need to practice. But YOU'RE GONNA make it more for the part that you said about being a professional and when I talked young seals or young marines or soldiers airmen sailors whoever you know our say I would say the euro professional and then I. This is your life this right here is your life and everything else is secondary Mary to what you're doing right here and you need to study. You need to learn you need to read. You need to practice. You need to rehearse and you need to do that all the time. Because you're never going to be good enough and you need to make this right here your life You got a couple other notes in here. One of them says Staff Sergeant Shelley. What's that all about when I when I went through Ranger School in the mountain of as there was African American Ranger Instructor. There Call Sergeant Shelly. Hard core hard core dude. Rarely did he pass any went on patrol and I had him. He graded me one time and I passed Uh when I came back from Vietnam and went to the department I ended up in the mountains. He ended up on my team. So now I've got the famous Sergeant Shelly on my team and I thought man this is go. We go on patrol. We're on grading a platoon leader. He's growing grading sergeant. It's eighteen degrees outside Chelsea shows up. Could you got fatigue shirt on. But he's got his sleeves rolled up and said where's your Parker Parker gloves. I don't need glass is eighteen degrees. He said okay. I'm fine hard dude. And then do we. We're out on patrol. The snow's almost knee deep with dragon. The Rangers through it. They're tired to call and You know so I call the next patrol leader next person who's GonNa take over the the protein and ranger take after mouth and I want you to show me ten digit coordinates to where we're standing right now. Could you gotTa know where you're starting from. And he kind of looks at me and said take your map out. I don't have them out sir. Why don't you have a map? Said well sorry. Shelley took my map when we stopped back there and we had to go ahead man because of the guy getting the frostbite He took my out then. Go Ask sergeant challenge to give you your mouth that community that I can't do that so he built a bar with my out as it. Okay then you need redefined somebody for here gonNA loan your mouth. You're going to be the patrol leader. You gotTa have a map back then. You could do a lot of things that you can't do now. It's hard to shelley would take onions. Cut them in half rubble rubble all over him. He would eat garlic taking some Kentucky Fried Chicken with him in the bag and so when it was dark and the Rangers students you only had to feed them once every three days back then. They got to call her and resupplies or if they call them for resupplies that they didn't ask expert food they just got to have an issue So they were always hungry and you get under a Poncho at night. Sorry Shelley would say show me show me where we are on the map and the range would start to porn out where we're at and nobody under the Poncho can breathe. Shelly smells so bad. Egypt secondary breath. Their eyes are watering and the guy starts the point to where they arslan mouth and he dropped his chicken leg on his finger tactile chicken. I don't you dare Lick your finger not show me where you are. I mean he do things like that to a mall town and he was he was very good very hard And then as I started to develop a similar reputation they would hear about it forbidding and when it got to the the mountain face and Shelly I would walk in and take over the patrol for the next twenty four hours and we'd introduce ourselves you could see the looks on their face face all no one's bad enough. We owed them at the same time. No one's GonNa pass but Yeah I mean shelly. Celli Super Guy Really Smart and got another name down here. Bob Howard Bob Howard Melewar winter into use sog down at Khantun wounded like thirteen times eight purple hearts.
