"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
"thirty thousand foot" Discussed on WWL
"Girlie Ted Lana reporter to Carolina with the addition of the coordinator there it makes the idea very strong division but or they want a strong and then you have the best chance to make the ball out of that division boy oh boy that's a great question Tampa still has a ways to build you got to feel good about where New Orleans is that right now looking at it from that proverbial thirty thousand foot view Caroline is in the middle of a tear down I'm just you know we have a long way to go we don't even know the draft all the results are in and but right now you're picking from more than likely if you're seven playoff teams Niners Seahawks saints Buccaneers got to still feel okay about the Packers will suit the Vikings too now that they made their trade how they gonna tweak their team is Nick Foles started then Chicago right away I'm not so sure we know the lines are trying to sign every former patriot they can and many of the NFC east where are the only team I really trust this Philadelphia although the giants could take a job so if you don't want those teams together let's just say the giants the eagles the Packers the saints the Buccaneers the forty Niners and the Seahawks yeah you could probably safely rank them one through seven almost a long way to go but those to me are the teams that seem to have those core pieces in place to be able to then build around and be in that discussion for the Superbowl so I would say let's pump the brakes on that for another two months or so what's your read after the draft and you know sort of re examine that first weekend of may have a much better feel as to where some of these teams are growing in terms of their direction like will know somebody drafted a quarterback really soon all right maybe that quarterback is in danger of being bumped or something like that I know Landis trying to play catch up to the saints and the Buccaneers and they're not that far off the problem is how much better teams like the Packers and the Niners and these other teams gonna get over these next couple of weeks because the falcons aren't even there yet in terms of talent relative to the roster eight five five two one two for CBS.
"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.

The Opioid Crisis
"Kim Miller came to Greenville in the fall of two thousand and fourteen to become Greenville's twenty-six police chief he came via Charlotte Mecklenburg in Greensboro, North Carolina, and is really known for community policing. He believes that the community should be Imbaba. He was quoted in the Greenwood news that first week on the job is saying my role in managing the police department is making sure we're meeting the needs of the community were part of a community not apart from them. And chief welcome in your truly. I believe that you blew that believe that that your men and women need to be out on the streets and becoming a part of the community in which they serve it will. Thank you Joey for having me on your program. I I do believe that. And I believe also that the safest communities are the ones where police and community are working together to ensure that everybody is safe that we're all taking our part in ensuring that we're not gonna be victimized. And that our neighbors won't be victimized. So working you have to work in collaboration with the community and an number of service providers and businesses throughout our community do that. I'm glad to say in the coming weeks. We're going to be visited by the teeth. We're calling it. We're gonna call it a minute with Miller. But then we realized that there's not a such thing as just a minute with Miller. It's going to be minutes with a Meller because we we have lots to talk about chief. And we we got a little intro here for you. I'm police chief can. You'll be checking in weekly with chief Miller. So let's just jump in here. Like so many areas. One of the things that we're seeing here in the upstate and, unfortunately, it's one of the things at the upstate lease estate in as I understand is the impact of Opio at the opioid crisis. We hear a lot about this. But give us a thirty thousand foot view of what the opioid crisis looks like here in in Greenville. And what that means. Yeah. So Jerry, we we struggle between our county and the coastal counties with with the opioid crisis mostly for South Carolina and here in the upstate. We have a dubious distinction of actually having the most opiate overdose reversals in the state. We are the most populous county, and we have the most reversals and not the highest overdose fatal rate or. Metality rate for the state because we are quipped EMS fire personnel and police and sheriff's personnel are quipped with a life saving drug naloxone. And so we've administered that seven hundred ten times actually, more than seven hundred ten times between the three first responders to to really reverse the effects and safe people. And we have in fact, saved many many people from from dying from overdose here in in Greenville county now that seven hundred plus over what period of time is that's just that's just twenty eighteen while. Yeah. Well, his twenty eighteen when you look at this and just at the national level in two thousand sixteen there were sixty two thousand four hundred ninety seven fatal overdose related to opioids heroin and fennel and largely fennel in two thousand seventeen that increased to seventy thousand two hundred thirty seven so we're still on the upswing with his. Pedantic? And if you put that in comparison anything put it an all Vietnam, they were fifty eight thousand two hundred twenty casualties. And so in two years alone. We've more than doubled. The casualty rate the ten plus years of Vietnam war. So so what what's the answer? So there are you know, there are a lot of there are a lot of things we can do. But I will tell you that we need to change behavior. And that behavior begins from the far pharmaceutical companies through our physicians that are prescribing how we manage prescriptions, but we have to focus and this what we do in policing. When we look at problems that are affecting our community. We we look at prevention intervention and enforcement a lot of folks, you know, enforcement is kind of our lane, but we find ourselves in in into the prevention and intervention partnerships because they're so important to to our communities because if all we do is enforcement, we basically criminalize most behavior and and criminalize our

But nothing most of us will escape it with not much in the way of accumulation and milder weather, at least close to average which is forty seven for daytime high probably taken us into early next week and through the middle of next week probably in the mid forties to low fifty so temperature wise, precip wise, that's the thirty thousand foot level this morning as we get a little closer in clear and not as cold but still chilly most of teens and twenties this afternoon, forty six.

Judge: Top Trump Official Went Easy on Billionaire Sex Trafficker
"A situation at south Florida judge ruled yesterday the federal prosecutors, including Trump's labor secretary Alexander Kosta violated the law by striking a sweetheart plea deal with wealthy financier. Jeffrey Epstein in which Epstein averted federal prosecution for his participation in international sex operation, a Kosta who at the time was the US attorney for the southern district of Florida opted, not to prosecute Epstein on federal sex traffic laws. And instead struck a deal that ultimately granted him immunity. More than thirty of Epstein's victims were not notified of the arrangement. The judge wrote particularly problematic was the government's decision to conceal the existence of the agreement and mislead the victims to believe the federal prosecution was still a possibility this guy. Jeffrey Epstein is a bad, dude. He has been connected to both Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. And and now you have the labor secretary Alexander Kosta who's right in the middle of this new mess Felix. I know you went through all of this on this particular case what stood out to you yet. This was a thirty three page order the judge issued as you said yesterday and into steals what the actual construction of the plea agreement between Epstein and federal prosecutors that didn't really turn into a plea agreement because they ultimately let him plead guilty in state court in south Florida, not in federal court. So the whole structure of the agreement really is a non prosecution agreement involving these thirty four identified victims that the FBI was looking into you over the course of nineteen ninety nine to two thousand seven is time period. That Epstein is committed to all these crimes not only interstate between states. He was travelling back and forth engaged in human trafficking and other sex acts. But also they're looking at international charters private plane, and there would be these these sex parties. And so it was very detail because all these litters were going back and forth between a line prosecutor, a low level US attorney assigned to this case and Epsteins defense attorney, and it's defense team eventually involving even Kenneth Starr who was the special prosecutor during the Clinton investigation other big name into the mic. So when you look at a day detail, the correspondence back and forth between the prosecutors and the defense, and it was very clear that we're trying to minimize not only the media coverage of Epstein engage in all these sex acts and all these crimes that they had documentation of. And we're developing a federal case against against him. And they were trying to there's exchanges going back. Hey, why don't you start looking at some misdemeanor charges and will lead them to a couple of obstruction charge related to one of his co conspirators eventually what it ended up happening is that all the federal charges were never prosecuted they were kicked over to stay court to handle where he pled to a felony solicitation for prostitution case was he served. A very small period of jail time. But what the judge struck at the heart of is that the victims have rights in these federal cases under the crime victims Rights Act that they'd be notified of any plea agreements any court appearances any chance that they would have to speak their mind or speak with investigators, and it didn't also travel until after this non-prosecution agreement was signed by Epstein. And then when they started looking at okay as part of the agreement, you agree that you have to pay whatever civil damages these victims are coming after which was part of the agreement but day, specifically said we do not want the victims to know about the non-prosecution agreement because it will unravel anything they were focused on f scenes confidentiality all throughout the process. What gets even worse for Alex Kosta, he's directly involved in these negotiations. Whether or not victim letters were sent out what in these letters that they're entitled to know about the process. And then he even said in one statement that he agrees to tell them only about the federal resolution the right that they have. That there are appointed attorney to go after him civilly, and he will defer to the state court on whether or not day could show up for the sentencing or the plea agreement. They totally downplayed the rights of the victims in this case. And that's what she took issue with. And when asked about the Epstein case at his confirmation hearing Kosta said that his handling of the case was a point of pride. What you have here. Let's take the thirty thousand foot view, you have a billionaire who is connected to some of the most powerful people in the country who got away with molesting girls as young as fourteen and being involved in a sex trafficking operation, right? That that's what you have here. You have basically that that worst case scenario, somebody super-rich super powerful getting away with some of the worst possible crimes that you could imagine. Because of who they are the influence. They have in the power. That they have in. The problem is is that it according to the judge I should say, it's a he gone Kenneth Mara. Who is the judge on this case, but it's detailed in terms of they have the documentary evidence in the non prosecution agreement was filed under seal in federal court and was an attorney for one of the Jane Doe was representing. He started with one. Jane, Dow, then in being three of them, and he started to unravel. Hey, we wanna see the plea agreement. We want to see what you negotiated with. Mr. Epstein, not what was in stake. Not which was in state court. They also document where Jane Doe number one came forward, and she was meeting with a US attorney and also FBI agent or two FBI agents, actually one point, and basically they were distributing them along single these things take time, it's a federal case and gave them every indication, right? They were going to pursue federal charges and never did. It was it was a big deal. Right. And it was also a according to the documents. It was already done deal. It was already signed before they even got into the letters that were going out. And the fact that a cost is directly involved in those communications that's becoming

You ask me a question about the president? I made the comment about the president. But that was really subjectivity on my part that that's what I feel right? No, I get it. What's what's going to happen going forward? It is right now we have a polarized country and the country is polarized. Just like it was in the sixties and early seventies. Because we have a huge population of young people and a huge population of old people and in between there is a small population. That does not bother the the position of either of those two so. Well, what I'd like about Dina's remarks, though, is she's she said how she felt without screaming without putting you down for your views. And that's what it's all about. That's the way it should be. Exactly. Yeah. So so Mike Mike comment to Dana would be thank you for your position. Not yelling at me. Let's go to Joe in Long Island, New York Keijo. Go ahead. Tend to question. So it talked about the Wall Street Journal having more information than and one issue. Peop- people have that, you know, then and how this just an estimation explosion, basically, people pick and choose their installation, even at a professional level. What to emphasize and sense that if you look at Japan people used to like. Twenty years ago. Does people just work twenty four seven almost and it just hasn't worked out at an individual level on Japan's people with that high octane drive to stay at the office till midnight, or whatever. So maybe they're lacking creative conscious something my second question would be about Amazon. I know they get criticized put out small prior to us, and I can understand that. But at the same time this stuff, you can find on there that you can't find locally even even in your for example. I got I got this. Great gloves for shoveling, my neighbors. Snow, and that's the main thing I need. But I couldn't find them Moakley. I got him on Amazon from like Minnesota. Go for the first question, Ken. I'm just dwelling on Long Island. Hey, I'm from Long Island. But what was the first question? Go ahead to guests synopsis again, Joe. Joe? You know, now that this example, an explosion at video, you know, like half everything people get on a smartphone. I think as as video based. Just how should people if the trying to move ahead in the world just pick and choose how they consume information. What at the Cise because it doesn't necessarily work out to put this grand? That's an into something one is just so much information. You know, like you like a carnal of sand on the sea. What good does it do? I it's just too overwhelming. But where's your where's your question of information that we get as it is overwhelming? So what do you do with it? You know, if if a lot of the the the gen Y kids, the millennials are actually tuning it out. You can ask them simple questions about you know, what's going on in the world, and they can't answer. But so how do you sift through this? What you have to do is you have to compare several sources, and that's what I do when I do research, and when I do presentations, I really don't come to any kind of conclusions unless I've compared a variety of sources. And that's what helps me with information in terms of Amazon, I think Amazon is just you know, what we did. When we opened the internet. We opened up the world, we we just devas our view to the innards of the world. And I think what's what's going down with Amazon is just something that's naturally transpiring. And I think it's just gonna get nothing. But bigger you're going to see commerce is going to change everything about commerce is going to change.

"I'm getting tired of does everything. Anyway. Derek thanks so much for joining us in studio. Thank you. What are we start broadly? How's the business of baseball? Because I hear the demo for baseballs all attendances hurting a little bit overarching thirty thousand foot view. How's the business of baseball? Well, I can speak obviously from an Atlanta. Brace perspective. And from our perspective is really good. I don't see the types of trends that I sometimes hear about, you know, I think those are things that maybe take place in other markets and for other situations in our particular marketplace, we're doing quite well, obviously, we have a new ballpark, which I know we'll we'll talk about at some point in time here today, but but you guys have involvement right surprise you as it might seem. But I think that's that's created a an excitement in our city and even in the region, you we're we're a really strong region for for the Braves we have about six states that we draw from and as a result of that. We get a pretty diverse fan base people that were avid fans from a long long time ago as well as fans that are relatively new to the game. And in fact, because of the way that the ballpark was built with all this entertainment other things were were really attracting that younger demo who's coming down there. Not just for a baseball experience. But really for entertainment experience something that you know, is social in nature entertainment district. That's what that's what I, you know, obviously, LA live Tim Leiweke talks about it and Seattle and some other places vinick talks about it in Tampa. Is it enough? Can you live these days if you just have a sports team or the other ten polls? Whether it's media real estate, there has to be more. I would say you could probably do it. I don't think though necessarily. You know? And obviously, I come from a place of bites. I don't think it's the right thing to do long term. I think you really have to think about the overall experience of your fans, and the the conventional wisdom traditional type of approach is really to think about the fan from the point in time that they enter the gate and go into the ballpark or venue sports venue. Whatever it might be too when they leave in our case, we changed that paradigm and really thought about how do we create the experience from the very point in time that they enter the campus even parking the car from the moment in time that they parked the car get out the car a hassle. Nobody wants to deal with. I would say parking's a hassle in almost any venue where you have twenty thirty forty fifty thousand people coming at any one time to do it. Right. I would occur people to think about it holistically meaning thinking about parking almost on the very front edge of their overall experience. Right. So in our particular case, just take our our example, you have a ballpark. We have an entertainment district or call it a whole development, and we distributed parking all the way around the ballpark. So as opposed to the old days where you think about those old multipurpose societies where they'd come in. You'd have these gigantic surface parking lots right and everybody would go park in those gigantic surface parking lots outside, and again, you your experience would begin right at the point in time that you enter here the parking's distributed all the way around..
