40 Burst results for "Three Hour"
A highlight from TBGP #412 Alan Wake 2 Previews, Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty Wrap-up, Starfield Review Bombing Far Cry 7
"Yeah, game of thrones is like to me that first season is like super dark uber grim, no, no magic, no nothing. And then suddenly it sort of gets into itself. Sup everybody. This is carrick with ACG and I'm here with abzi doing the, uh, yeah, oh shit, yeah. Doing the, uh, the best gaming podcast number. I gotta look. Where are we at? What are we at? 412. 412. Yeah. Thanks to abzi for joining me. We've decided to do these occasionally. Well first we're going to start doing them biweekly to see how that goes and then we're going to sort of see how it works for the long term. We just really haven't decided. It's something that I've wanted to do for a while, especially because we miss a lot of the news in the starting week. We do skip a lot because yeah, we go on tangents and shit. Well it's all my fault. We talked about dreams for an hour and it was good, it was good, but we talked about dreams for an hour. So yeah, something's getting skipped. So thanks for everybody showing up. I absolutely appreciate it. Thanks for spreading the word around that we're doing this. If you can tweet it, super chats, all that kind of stuff. We're just going to actually jump in, discuss what we've been playing for a bit. Talk about early week news and we got a couple couple interesting bits here as well that I think will be fun. But what have you been playing? Um, I just recently started Phantom Liberty, like the cyberpunk expansion. Dude. Okay. I played it for about maybe five, six hours, four or five hours. Okay. Honestly, dude, it's fucking cool. That's all I'm going to say. It's just fucking cool. I enjoyed the first four hours. I think the new characters I got introduced to are pretty cool. I'm liking the dialogue. It has a lot of edge to it, which I like, you know, we talked about edge and lack of edge before and, um, and, uh, the VA is pretty good. And the, I'm liking the writing a lot, a lot more than the, than the original game. And it seems to be having like, it seems to have actual choice and consequence in this one versus like the original game. So yeah, I'm enjoying it a lot. And some of the stuff kind of layered into the main game, like there's like these new things, activities that kind of got pushed into the main game as for a 2 .0, like the main game, it's the combat's fun and stuff, and they fixed a lot of issues for sure. The new system is amazing and the skill tree and everything, but it still has that like kinda, um, there's a lot of, the map is just a lot of shit. You know what I mean? You just go, it's kind of like far cry. You just go and kill and go and kill and like 90 % of the stuff is, is just, is just combat minus like the few really good side quests. But um, with this, I think it's because it's like a smaller setting and Phantom Liberty, it's very packed and tight. I feel like there's more, um, motivation for exploration and stuff and talking to different npc's listening and into stuff and reading lore and the main story and the characters. Yeah, they're just, uh, I've been enjoying it a lot, you know, goul $2 super chatter. We still get a friday podcast. Of course. I'm not stopping friday podcasts. I said it starting. I'll say it again. I've talked about it on twitter. No way. Are we stopping that? This is simply just to do some extra stuff, especially because reviews don't hit this embargo time. Uh, very often, Wednesday, two or three hours in the early morning, Wednesday, I can work around that. And if I can't, that's on me. But I would agree with everything you said. I also think there's a lot, not a lot. There is some far cry stuff in cyberpunk that they hide by not putting icons down. For example, the consistent fucking fighting between gangs in that game. And I had forgotten something has to happen every 20 seconds. It's all the time. You come around a corner and it's like, and I was so confused because I had forgotten. So I thought it was a big deal. And I got into like 40 fights. I was like, fuck man, things are going, this is all because of, and then it dawned on me a little later on. I'm like, oh no, none of this is because I have like, you know, had something cool happen. It was the way the game was set up. They were smart to hide it because I think Ubisoft gets dinged a lot of times because it's there too. They present checklist. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So have you done any of the driving stuff? People were just talking on our discord about leaping off the cars and katana. Yeah, that's pretty cool, man. That shit's pretty cool. I, I, I'm, there's still some bugs just reminded me, um, like I had a bug where I, if I pull out a certain weapon in a car, I just couldn't move my mouse to aim or do anything. And it wouldn't auto lock like it's supposed to, um, also for everyone playing. So I I've isolated an issue where causes game crashes and I've seen multiple Reddit posts about this and comments. If you use a mod called, I think it's the airstrike mod on a melee weapon, which gives you, I think higher crit chance. If you strike from, uh, uh, in the air or something like that, it crashes your game straight up, uh, like 90 % of the time. So just don't use that mod. Now I've isolated that issue to that. It might be even deeper than that. So it might be like my combination of perks or something interacting with that mod, but you should just like stay away from that mod for the time being.
Fresh update on "three hour" discussed on The MMQB NFL Podcast
"You know what? Can I take neither? I feel like the score of this game is going to be 15-13, everybody's dignity is zero. I'm going to take Denver just because I think they can score a handful of points. I don't know that Chicago can do it. Chicago is just brutal. But then again, you're also going off of Denver is also brutal. So I'm very conflicted. I'll just say that I think Denver can score 20 points in this game. And I don't know that Chicago can score 20 points. And whoever loses this game should be ashamed and embarrassed and appalled and should have to hold a press conference and apologize to their fan base. That's where I'm at with this game. I will be watching Bill's Dolphins in the early window. I will be keeping a morbid eye on this football game. I need to know. If this game is tied with two minutes left, I'm absolutely putting on a split screen. I have to see how it ends. And I feel like it has to end in a ridiculous fashion. There's no way this is a normal football game. This ends with somebody throwing a 100-yard pick-six and they should be kneeling down. So give me Denver and also give me some Tylenol for that football game. Let's get to America's favorite part of the show, Sarah. What is going on in your life? What's happened since we've last spoke? Yeah, I don't know what it is, but to start the NFL season, I've been very adventurous. And I'll give credit to my girlfriend, Caroline. She has me doing things. And I haven't gone camping in like 20 years, man. And there's a reason for it. I don't like sleeping on the ground. I made a deal and I said, all right, let's do it. We'll have fun. It was with her family. And we all had a good time. But sleeping on a rock on my back, it wasn't the funniest thing to do. But you know what? It shows that I was underprepared, man, here. I was like the Broncos going into Miami. Everybody had an inflatable bed. And I'm like, I thought the whole purpose is to sleep on the ground and be in the woods here. But everybody was comfortable. They all had extra blankets. I had just this one hoodie on. It was cold out there. So that's maybe the reason why it wasn't as fun for me. But to be around good people and just kind of hang around and talk. And it's funny, too, because I guess I used to do it all the time. Her and her cousins and her uncles and aunts. And just hang out all night and talk by the fire through the wee hours of the morning. Apparently, everybody's older now. And everybody's going to bed by 930 or 10. I'm like, cool, cool. That's fine with me, too. I thought they were supposed to talk here for hours and hours. So it was good to be around them for a bit. But yeah, I think I'm more of a glamper, glamping. I've done that before. You're actually in a bed in some kind of weird hut. But outdoors is nice for me. But I don't want to sleep there for the whole night. And then wake up the next day and try to find the bathroom. Because it's like 80 yards away from me. But I survived, Matt. And I've been doing things. I'm very surprised. Maybe next week I won't give you anything. Because I want to stay home for a weekend. But so far, I'm giving you a lot of good content here. Now, I got to ask. You're based in L.A. Where were you camping? Like a park? Where the hell did you go? It's not like you could just walk outside and go into the rainforest. Where were you? Yeah, I had to drive about two and a half. Well, in L.A. it's just traffic. So it took me three hours to get out of the city. And it's a place called Big Bear. And Big Bear is known for all these. The boxers like to go up there for the ones that live in L.A. Because it's higher elevation. And you kind of get them better in shape. So Matt, I went for a walk. And I was like, yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll take a beer. It's going to be a nice little walk. I was out of breath. And I'm like, I can't even keep drinking this beer here, man. I'm losing it here. So yeah, you know how to drive a little ways out. And Big Bear is very popular out here in L.A. So everybody does that. And it was a good time. But yeah, it really reminded me of my age and how out of shape I am. But I got to hear about your pickleball. I'm sure you're in better shape than I am. No, I was going to say, well, speaking about being out of shape and feeling my age. So I played a pickleball tournament on Saturday that I talked about last week. And we really wanted the podium, you know, top three. And we finished fourth. And I'm not that upset about it. I mean, it was the first tournament I ever did. I wasn't sure like which bracket, like which level I should be in. We picked the right ones. That was good. We won the first game 11 to 1. And I was like, we're going to roll fools out here. This is great.
A highlight from How To Turn Your STRESS Into SUCCESS!
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award -winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Welcome back. Today we're going to be talking about how to turn your stress into success. Here's a simple fact. All of us, no matter how organized you are, no matter how drilled down your schedule was, no matter how perfect you think you got things going for you, you're going to experience stress. It's normal, but how you react to the stress that you're experiencing, that is something that you can actually control to a great extent, not 100%. So what we're going to do today is we're going to go through, it's going to be a two -part podcast. We're going to go through a system where you can essentially acknowledge your stress. I'm not going to say manage your stress or manage your time, because those things are often unmanageable, and the very prospect of trying to manage either actually causes you more stress. That's true. Which is ironic. But what we're going to do is take you through a process so that you can really turn what mostly is an unconscious reaction to something external into something that you will find that you can derive power from and focus. So get ready to take notes, and as always, all of our notes are available down below in the show description. If you're on iTunes or YouTube or, hey, we're now on, what's that new video platform called? I forget. Anyway. Something new. Something new where videos actually are also living. And all the other, Spotify, Amazon, everywhere. We're on Google Listen and everywhere. So yes, everywhere that the podcast is listened to, you can also find the notes for our show. We oftentimes will put all of the notes that we're using. Notes are all copywritten, of course, but at the end of the day, we want you to feel free to use these when training your own agents or maybe your small brokerage, whatever. This content is designed to help you first, and then hopefully you're going to help others with this information as well. And while there also, there's a lot of links in the show description below, and you can join the premier coaching program. There's information about our eXp Real Estate Group, which you might want to consider joining all kinds of good stuff. So just scroll down and it's all there waiting for you. So Julie, let's roll into your points. Yes. And it is true that one of the most common questions we get from podcast listeners and coaching clients when you guys text us or reach out, it sounds, you know, it comes in different flavors, but it usually sounds something like this. I feel out of control with my time. I'm spending a lot of time chasing after scarce listings from my buyers, negotiating multiple offers on my own listings, and then putting out fires on my pending deals. So how can I get back into control? You're wondering what's okay to stop doing, or you should be wondering what's okay to stop doing, and what must you never drop when you're feeling out of control. There's an old saying that goes like this. If you're not controlling your time, someone or something else always will. So we're going to give you a multiple step plan. It's a little bit of this is mindset, how to control your, how you're thinking about it, and some action steps. So here are things what to get rid of and what to keep. Well, I mean, just reading your description there gave me a little bit of stress, I have to say. Did you do that on purpose, Julie? No. You'll feel better by the end, I promise. I wanted to share with them something, because the thing that actually drove my stress up a little bit when you were talking about not enough listings, guys, in the next few days, we're doing a podcast that is, I think Julie is now, what, 30 different sources? Yes. I'm actually excited. And in a couple of days, we're going to do a one -part podcast, which is all of the different online sources, resources, other than your MLS, to find listings. And there's quite a variety. We're going to talk about farms, land, ranch, commercial, normal residential, vacation properties, foreclosure, everything. But what we're doing is we're actually giving you guys links of where you can go to find homes that are for sale that are not in the MLS. That's the main thing. So the notes already have, I think it's like 25 or 30 different websites, mostly, well, I mean, they're all websites, where you can click on the link and then you can be taken to a list of a source of homes for sale. Again, these are not in the MLS. And these are almost all nationwide, by the way. Right. And we're going to be doing this the next couple of days. So yes, if you are feeling stressed from not having enough inventory, we're going to cure that in the next couple of days, listen to the podcast. All right, Julie. So part one. You got it. All right. So let's see. What to let go of versus what to keep. So let's see part one. Number one, mindset check. Are you really that busy or are you just disorganized? Take a day to get real about what you're actually managing. Sometimes just dedicating a day or even two days to getting a grip is all you actually need. So don't keep telling yourself you're overwhelmed. Instead, your affirmation is that you are surrounded by opportunity. Isn't that more accurate? This is why this is the first step. When you do that first, you'll realize that your state of overwhelm is actually temporary versus allowing it to become a lifestyle. So I don't, I didn't scan your notes, but did you talk to them at all about the brain dump? I didn't. Yes. You can add it right in here. I was thinking this would be a perfect spot. Bonus point. One and a half. That's right. Bonus point. One and a half. So one of the systems that we've used for decades, especially with coaching clients, is when they're feeling overwhelmed. Take a tablet of paper and I don't know why tablets of paper where you're writing it out is more effective than if you're typing it out. Typing it out almost, I don't know, it doesn't stick in your brain as much. So take a tablet of paper. Take like maybe one of those long yellow legal tabs or tablets and then write down everything that's in your brain. Don't stop writing until essentially everything that's in your mind that you think you should be thinking about is completely cleared out and you can do personal and business and go through every single thing. So that's the first cure because what you're going to find out oftentimes is that you're going to start, like you'll write down maybe 10 or 20 different things and then you're writing them down in different versions. Like you're going to say, take in the dry cleaning and then you're going to realize that you wrote that down as the fourth thing and now you're seeing that you write it down as the 18th thing. In other words, what you'll discover is a lot of thoughts that you're having that are feeling like they're, you know, bogging down your ability to think clearly are the same thoughts. In other words, you don't really have that many things that you think you have more going on in your head than you actually do. So when you write all this down, then you're going to look at this list and there's three filters that you run all these things through and it's called do it, delegate it or ditch it. So the things that you absolutely positively must always be doing are going to be the things that fall into the five categories of the things that make you money in real estate, which is proactively generation, you know, obviously prequalifying, presenting a lead follow up, negotiating, those types of things that we teach in premier coaching. Those are the things that you should not be delegating and you have to do it. So the do it category are the things that you absolutely positively should leave on your list. The delegated category are, there's lots of things you could be delegating, lots of things you don't have to be doing. Lots of things that may be frankly under the delegation category are things that maybe not only not don't have to do yourself, but maybe don't need done at all. In other words, you put them on your list, you thought they were important. Somebody told you they were important, maybe even, and guess what? They aren't important. So get rid of them. And then the last one is ditch it and that's where essentially the lot of the things in your second, you know, the delegated part, they're going to go to the ditch it category and just completely remove them from your list. Or another thing to do is if there's longer term projects or things you wanted to be doing, write them on a completely separate list and then segment your list. But the most important thing is if you want to really get control, and this is a good, this is a really, at the end of the day, this is a mindset point, but if you really want to clear your brain and start feeling a resemblance of control, I did, did this just the other day. Honestly, I had a big, uh, to do list and it was, um, I keep lists. I'm a list guy. I know a lot of people have different systems for it, but lists work for me because I derive immense pleasure crossing them out. Yes, it is very satisfying. That's why it's very cathartic to take a damn thing is bought in that damn list and getting rid of it. Bye bye. That's right. I enjoy that. So that's my payoff. But there's a system. So do a delegated or ditch it, but start out by doing what we call a brain dump and write everything down and then go through it. And then you'll start seeing after you actually write everything on a piece of paper, you will feel better. You will feel some sort of a cloud will lift. It will. It really will. Then you look at all the things are floating around your head and like I said, remove the duplicates first because a lot of them will be duplicates and then go for a do it delegated or ditch it and then you know, move forward. That's a simple system. Well, that's a perfect 0 .1 and a half because remember we started by saying, are you really that busy? Are you just a bit disorganized? Maybe your mind is feeling disorganized because you haven't written it down and done the brain dump, right? So that goes hand in hand. And speaking of the do it part of the do it, ditch it or delegate it. Point number two, proactively generation cannot stop. This is the first thing that agents drop when they get even a tiny bit busy. You must actively pursue new qualified appointments every single work day. And it is the most important action that you take daily, whether you have a, whether you have pending transactions or not, whether you have active listings or not, always on every call, whether it's a home inspector or lender, a past client or a pending ask, you guys should know it by now, whom do you know who could use my help buying or selling real estate or Tim's version, which I like even better. What two or three people do you know who could use my help buying or selling real estate? So make the commitment to a minimum standard of contacts every work day, even when you're feeling busy, refer to our previous podcasts about how to list and sell the homes that you need to sell your magic number as well as lead generation from best to worst. We've done so much work on this with you guys on previous podcasts and in premier coaching. So I'm going to actually, I'm going to reinforce all your points, but I'm also going to give these guys a bit of a relief valve. I have coached people who are just for some reason wired to be disorganized. They're wired to basically be Liberty Gibbets bouncing here, bouncing there. That's just how they are. But then yet they're very successful. And why are they very successful? Because they always lean back into the things that are going to make them money. And oftentimes they have really vibrant personalities and people like them, despite the fact that they're wearing shoes that don't match and you know, things like that. All right. So how do, what's the solution when you're coaching somebody like that? The solution is not trying to find them a solution. The solution is just making sure they do to the three to five things every single day that they should be doing at a high level and then holding them accountable as three to five things and then giving them permission to be whatever the hell they want to do with their time the rest of the day. In other words, they can't, it's too much emotional stress for them to be held to a schedule for more than maybe two or three hours a day at, you know, in other words, they can only really, let's air quote here, time block two or three hours a day. So what are the things they should be doing in those two or three hours? And Julie and I talk about this on the podcast all the time, but obviously Julie's pointing about proactive lead generation. We want to talk about, you know, if you had a listing appointment, presenting, negotiating, all those types of things we teach in the coaching program. But really guys, if you really want to know how to really feel long -term control of your day, your day should come down to having mastered the art and science of really doing only three to five things every day. And those things are, in our opinion, now you can modify, but this is sort of a holistic approach to this, right? You need to be making your self -determined number of contacts per day as determined by your real estate treasure map, which we give you in the first level of Premier Coaching. So whatever your number of contacts per day, you need to be making those per day. You need to be having done all your lead follow up by the end of the day. I'm giving you a whole bunch and you guys choose which ones. Ideally, when you are very, you know, essentially advanced as a proactive lead generator, you should be setting one pre -qualified listing appointment per day. Julie and I are huge advocates of doing some sort of physical workout routine every single day, taking some kind of supplements every single day, showing overt gratitude. You know, I love you Julie, I love you Tim. You know, showing overt gratitude to the people that mean the most to you every single day. If you just basically write down the things that you have to do every single day, the accumulative effect of doing those things every single day will pay off in ways that you can't even understand. It's a multiplication effect. There's a compounding of duplicating those efforts. The obvious one being is that if you're working out and you're, you know, hopefully taking care of what you eat, you're going to see, not right away, but over time, your energy level increases, your physicality increases, same goes with making contacts. But the key to making this work is do those same things every single day and then often will come down to doing what you don't want to do when you don't want to do it at the highest level, which by the way, is the founding principle of our coaching program, but also of anyone I've ever met in life who's successful at any level. They knew that they had to do what they didn't want to do when they didn't want to do it at the highest level over long periods of time. And that's what we're prescribing to all of you guys as well, because it does pay off. So really, if you're wanting to get in control, but you're absolutely one of these people that can't be in control as your coach, I give you permission not to be in control for anything other than those two or three hours, ideally in the morning, because when you get those three to five things done every single day, even if the rest of the day is like a, you know, high speed roller coaster, it does not matter because you did the most important things. Well, that's right. That's the most important thing that you said is what you do with those two to three hours is what's critical. What you're not doing is giving them permission to just say, well, I'm just a disorganized person or go on Instagram or make a bunch of TikTok videos or do a bunch of passive lead generation or go on Facebook and take a bunch of surveys. All this silliness that doesn't lead to anything. That stuff doesn't count. Okay. So we're talking about what to keep and what to ditch. Point number three, deadlines cannot be ignored or procrastinated. You can lose a deal by losing track of time or having misunderstandings with the other side. So remember that people scan through DocuSign without really realizing what they're signing or remembering it or being able to even find it again. You can't be part of that. So use a transaction coordinator if that's getting out of control or if you're your transaction coordinator, you have to be careful with your earnest money deposits, contingency releases, inspection dates. Don't let those fall behind just because you're behind. Get clarity and or get help. And I'll tell you what one of my coaching clients does is when she does new transactions. Yes, of course, that's all in DocuSign and transaction management and transaction coordinators and all that. But in also her alarms, in her phone, she gives herself two or three day warnings. There's a contingency coming up. You've got to release that so that even if she's really super busy showing houses, maybe she's got somebody coming into town and it's a really intense appointment weekend. The alarm is going to save her butt. So that's just a backup plan. There's lots of different things that you can do. But this is one thing that you really can't blow off because it could cost you a deal. Well, I'll give you some exciting news. I know because you and I are investing some frankly, some money and time into developing some A .I. bots and apps for our different businesses, that there are absolutely people that are developing A .I. right now to work directly with the major CRM or transaction management platforms. So agents are going to be able to have an A .I. bot that's essentially going to act as a real live admin who's going to oversee the entire process. It's amazing. And ChatGPT4 and Bard and all these others, this week, ChatGPT4 is releasing a version for their paid users where essentially it's going to start using voice. So remember we were talking about on the podcast yesterday about all this? Well, the technology is here. So you're going to start having a voice. In other words, it's a real human voice. It does not sound like an old fashioned answering machine. That's good. And you know, I just laughed at myself because how many people? They don't know what an answering machine is. Right. Anyway, so back to 2023 or 2024 when you're listening. So the moral of the story is that there are going to be massive advancements in this A .I. technology that's going to make your lives a lot easier, which will give you a lot more room and time to spend on the things that matter most. That's assuming that you know what those things are and you actually know how to do them. That's what coaching is all about. And yeah, a lot of this technology is going to be coming through. I shouldn't maybe necessarily say this, but I know eXp Realty is working on developing a lot of these A .I. bots. Glenn Sanford is unbelievably intelligent about creating these technologies that streamline a lot of agent processes. And really, there's no downside. The experience is better from the customer's perspective, the agent's perspective, the broker's perspective. So all that's coming to a brokerage near you, assuming you're with Juli and I at eXp Realty. There you are. All right, now our final point for today is maybe one of my favorite points in terms of getting agents and brokers really organized and giving you peace. And that is point number four today, keeping your visual accountability, your whiteboards updated. You can't ignore that. You can't put it off, update it every day. In order to know if you are on track ahead or behind, keep that updated. Don't ignore your boards just because you feel like you're currently on track or ahead or hide out from them if you feel like you're behind. Not tracking your business is what will make you behind in a matter of days or weeks. Now, there's a rule in aviation called the one in 60 rule. When a plane veers off its course by just one degree, it misses its target destination by one mile for every 60 miles it's flown. Isn't that interesting, right? It is. You think it's just one degree. What's the big deal? I can find the airport, but maybe it's not the airport you were looking for. You're the plane. Stay on course. Visual is accountability the dashboard of your business. I have to say, Tim, I know you've had this experience too. Once agents start really embracing the visual accountability, and yes, we know you've got all this kept track of in a spreadsheet or your broker tracks it or whatever. We're talking about in your office on whiteboards in front of you. It works because it is visual. They'll say, oh, my gosh, I just feel so much more peaceful knowing and seeing I've got this many listing leads. I've got this many active listings. I've got this many pending, and I've got that many closed, which means I'm exactly three deals ahead of where I should be based on my treasure map. A lot of the stress in real estate really in life is just not knowing stuff, right? Not knowing about your finances, not knowing about what's going on inside your contracts, not knowing whether you're on track ahead or behind. It will give you peace to know. Well, the dry erase boards are the reason that obviously we know about all the technologies and all the widgets that give you creative dashboards that show you all your key performance indicators and all those things. We use those things in our business as well, but it's what Julie just said. The problem with all that technology is that you can hide from it, and it hides from you. A dry erase board, especially a large dominant one, and I was thinking when you were talking how when somebody, we get Premier Coaching clients, they'll post pictures of these big -ass dry erase boards, and they'll put them up on their walls. I'm talking about the monster ones, and that's the only way to do it because it doesn't leave any typically room for anything else on the wall. Tell them what the dry erase board should be because not everybody is a coaching client. Yes, well, they should be, and we'll tell them about that in a minute. What should you track? I like to think of it chronologically, right? Every transaction that becomes a closing starts as a lead, so you track your especially listing leads. Right. I'm looking at my wall. I want to know what the dry erase boards are. That's what I'm saying. I want to know which of them are. Okay. The first dry erase board is? Leads because everything starts as a lead. Okay. Then it becomes a listing. That's the second board is active listings. Okay. Then the last one is closings. You have one in between, pendings, and then you have closed. If your goal is to close 24 transactions, your closed board will be one through 24. As they travel through your boards, they land on the closed board, and you can see, are you on deal number three? Are you on deal number five? Where are you versus where you should be? On the closed board, sellers are in red, buyers are in blue. The other thing you can also do, and this is really fine tuning all of the accountability you have for yourself, is write down on the closed board what the price was and what the commission was, and then also really drill down on what the source of the lead was. We've talked for literally thousands of hours on this podcast of the importance of never just going by how the lead actually showed up in your life. You're going to need to ask secondary and sometimes third. What would be it? Cursary? Tertiary. Tertiary. That's right. That same question more than once. You need to ask them, who originally referred you to me? Where did you originally find me? How do we connect it? The story that Julie and I tell that seems to work is we were in our office when we were selling real estate, and one of our chief transaction coordinators was this gal named Kelly. Kelly was using a prequalification seller form, so she had at her desk buyer prequalification for him and seller prequalification for him. So Julie and I were in our office, and she was doing the seller prequalification, and one of the questions was halfway through the script was basically, so why did you decide to call Tim and Julie out for the job of selling your home? I think that was the question. And she wrote down the answer, but she didn't listen to herself ask the question, and she didn't watch herself write down the answer. So she asked the question two times in a row, and the first way that they answered it was like a sign or whatever. And then she asked the same exact question, and then they answered it, and we watched as they wrote down that it was a referral from so -and -so. And so that was the real tip -off that if you don't ask for what like drill down and really dig into where they're or why they're contacting you, you're going to make the mistake of assuming that they basically are contacting you because of Facebook. Because what happens is that you're at Orange Theory, somebody asked you for a referral for a roofer. You're going to say, Jack's roofing, I don't necessarily have his phone number, my phone's in my car, whatever it is. But the person you're going to talk to remembers Jack's roofing in, say, Georgetown, Texas. So they're going to go and they're going to drop into Google, Jack's roofing, Georgetown, Texas. So the first thing that's going to come up is Jack's Facebook business page, let's say, or Instagram or whatever the hell it's going to be. And then you're going to message them through that app, and then Jack's going to get the message from Facebook that you are interested in having your roof fixed. All the while, Jack's going to then assume, hey, my Facebook campaign is working, you know? Of course. Look, I'm going to post more pictures of my lunch every single day, evidently that's generating business for me. Right. All the while, the real reason that Jack got that lead was because it was a referral from somebody you knew at the gym. You guys get the point? So if you're not asking those real drill down questions, you're really going to lose contact with the source of your business. You're not going to realize how much of your business comes from the things that don't cost any money, signs, for example, centers of influence and past clients, for example. People you maybe like, they could be somebody that an old neighbor, oh, you don't even know. You're going to have to ask. And that's what you'll self -discover, what Julie and I have been coaching all you guys for decades, is the percent of business comes from any kind of marketing and advertising is typically less than 10 % because most everyone chooses who they're going to use as a real estate professional, like 90 % based on the things we coach you guys to do, which cost you no money, which aren't anything to do with marketing, branding, and advertising. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying. Back to the roofing example, had Jack the roofer not had a business Facebook page and that person had gone to Google and tried to search for him, he may not have ever found Jack's phone number to actually make the, you know, to get in contact, right? So it's important that you have a presence online, but you've got to see it for what it is.

Katie's Birth Story: A First-Time Mom's 20-Minute, Accidental Home Birth
"It was like 4 a .m. when I woke up I remember checking the clock and it was pretty normal for me to wake up during pregnancy and I have to go pee in the middle of the night because you know pregnancy things. And so I woke up and I was laying there for a second before I got up and I was like oh actually I think I think I need to go number two. And so I was like okay maybe I'll walk across the apartment and go to the other restroom. And once I got there I was like oh okay I think this is a number three situation. Very TMI. So I went to the other bathroom so I wouldn't disturb my husband and truly I had diarrhea for I'm not even kidding three hours and I Oh my gosh that's ridiculous. But it was like actually diarrhea. Like I wasn't there was nothing else going on. I had no reason to assume anything else was happening. And I thought it was because I had some peanut butter the day before because I just never eat peanut butter. And so I was like you know maybe it just messed with me this time. So just like you can tell hormones were high like throughout this whole story you'll see I was not thinking straight no matter like just never I was never thinking straight it was quite hilarious. Yeah so basically so I go across and like in between like you know when like diarrhea hits and you're like I need to go now in between those moments I was going to the yoga ball and I figured like if I'm up in the middle of the night might as well be doing my mile circuit and just like stretching and so I was like doing things you would do in labor which is quite hilarious because I didn't I just wasn't thinking about any of it. So I was going back and forth between the toilet and the yoga ball and just doing all my things and then I just realized at some point I was like it's been a really long time like this is really absurd I'm going to go take a bath because the bath was my comfort when I was pregnant like that's just just where you want to be when you're pregnant you know yes and yes so I go back over to the other bathroom where my husband is sleeping in that room and I turn on the bath and I'm in between the bathtub and the toilet again and it's about seven thirty at this point so that was like let's see four that was three and a half hours of literally going number three like it was like rough and so I just like reached my breaking point and I came out and I was like Ben like I have been pooping for three hours what is going on and he poor thing had woken up and was reading in bed because he could literally hear me like this is it was just rough okay yes and so I come out and he's like it's okay like you're it it's just you know it's just you're going to the restroom it's fine and I was like I don't know and so I go back in and I'm kind of like I don't know but you call the midwife like I'm worried I'm hurting the baby I'm pooping so much you know like totally like not not rational at all so I have him call the midwives and he gets on the phone and he's like hey I don't know why I'm calling I think you know Katie's just pooping a lot and we just kind of want to check with you and the sweetest midwife answered the phone and she was just like don't worry like that's totally normal for your body to clear out as you're like leading up to labor like totally normal don't even worry a thing about it and so I was like okay that's reasonable I can I can work with that you know and so I go back to doing my business and I look down and I see what I think is just like some blood and I'm like oh my gosh Ben like now I'm bleeding like call them again like something like what is going on and I keep going back and forth between like this really peaceful state to like I'm going to hurt my baby because I'm pooping so much and this this is a very poop filled story I'm so sorry that's okay that's how so many women actually like that's how labor begins for a lot of people because like I don't know if you knew this but the prostaglandin that is produced by your body to ripen your cervix and get your body ready for labor it has effects on your GI system so that's why like a lot of the time that will happen for women and honestly so many birth stories are poop filled stories so don't even worry about it that's so funny okay good that's good okay yeah so basically I had him call them again they were like okay just let us know in 15 minutes how you're feeling and I was like okay that's fine so he hangs up and then I'm sitting there and I'm like actually will you call the doulas like I I just I just think they should know if like something weird is going on because I thought I would gonna I was gonna have to go to the hospital because something was wrong you know so he calls the doulas and he's like hey just wanted to let you know like Katie's and also just stumbles through trying to explain to them like why we're calling at 7am in the morning I guess it was probably like it was probably 7 .40 at this point and so he calls them and they're like okay like keep us updated sounds like she's doing fine and he's still on the phone with her and I had gotten into the bathtub and I just like felt the urge to check myself and so I reached out and I was like Ben I feel something soft and I like just had no idea what was going on and he he relays the message to the doula and he said okay she feels something soft and the doula goes okay I'm on my way over and I was like well that's weird okay and so the doula starts heading over we call the midwife back and we're just like hey like this is going on and she's like okay you know like this is just a little weird like if you wanna come in I'll just check you we'll just make sure you're all good and so I was like okay that sounds great and so I stand up to get out of the bed and immediately just squats down and pushes and I was like oh okay I can't stand up and so I try to do it again and the same thing happened my body squatted down and pushed and now I know it was the fetal ejection reflex but at the time I was just like what is going on so that was oh let me see if I can get yeah okay so that was like 745 and so after that I was like okay like call 911 like I don't know what needs to happen but like something's wrong like I was still very much in the mindset of like this baby is gonna be hurt by whatever is happening to me right now I'm sure you had no idea you were in labor no idea because I expected to feel contractions like I expected your normal signs and I just didn't have anything except for literally pooping for three hours yeah so that was super royal so at 746 my husband called 911 and he was on the phone with them and I was in the bathtub and he was like yeah like we just don't know what's going on like something weird is up and the lady starts asking him like about my due date and like how I'm doing and all this stuff and so while he's like answering all these questions I feel a massive pop and I was like oh my goodness I think my water broke and my husband was like oh okay and so he told the operator and they were like okay there's someone five minutes away and we'd say okay great and so he gets off the phone and it takes until 8 o 'clock for the EMS and the firefighters and the police department literally everybody to come into our small tiny apartment and so that is at 8 am they get here there's like 10 men that shuffle into my little bathroom in there because we live you know in a two bedroom apartment it's not huge and so like 10 men shuffle in and I just remember this guy coming in and he's like hey like I'm Michael and I was like hey Michael is it okay if I turn on the hot water and he was like yeah and I was like okay great and so I turned the hot water back on and I just like still don't know what's going on I'm just like something weird is up but like even though mentally I don't know my body knew exactly what I was doing which is why I think I was asking for the hot water and things like that so it's very interesting this whole time like I just feel like God was really taking care of me and telling me what to do when mentally I had no idea what was going on so they get there at 8 o 'clock and he's like you're gonna be fine like can you lean back so I can check you to see what's going on and I was like okay and so I leaned back and he was like oh okay yeah you're crowning and I leaned back forward and I was like oh this whole time I've been having a baby and I didn't realize it up until literally that point when I was crowning and so my body did the fetal ejection reflex two more times and she was born which is just super wild so at 803 she was born so I think I pushed like four times total and did not intentionally do it at all they were so awesome though the team just like let me stay in the bathtub let me do my thing they let me do skin to skin immediately after I they came with a hat and like came to clamp the cord and I was like don't put a hat on my child why would she need a hat and then I made sure they did delayed cord clamping so they were just super great at honoring everything that I asked for considering it was like just such a shock for everybody quite truly so it was super awesome but literally I think from the time that like we called the midwives to like the actual birth it was less than 30 minutes so that is like kind of what I consider what the labor was because that's when things really got intense and before that it was like super inconsistent nothing was really happening so yeah that's that's my

Fresh update on "three hour" discussed on Dennis Prager Podcasts
"Author. Author. It's a total joy and learning experience. The Origins of Woke. I have so many questions for you, my friend. Oh, no. It's the final segment? Richard, I blame you for that. Oh. Yes. Too soon. If you weren't that interesting and fun, it would have gone slower. You're completely responsible for this. I'm sorry, Dennis. I'll try to be more boring. All right. So, let's do staccato. What's the difference between woke and left? I think the left encompasses a lot of things, like people, you know, climate, views on economics. You know, I've got a social science background. I'm trying to explain one thing, like why are they insane on race and sex, right? Why are they crazy on speech? And I think that's the difference. So, wokeness to me is the idea that disparities are caused by discrimination. It's the restrictions on speech and it's the bureaucracy that's come together to enforce these ideas on the rest of us. Okay, so then back to sex. They got hostile work environment out of which laws? This was the Civil Rights Act of 1964. They defined discrimination as a hostile work environment, basically. Just like they defined whatever they defined as disparate. Exactly. So, Barry Goldwater was probably right. Yes, yes. Goldwater was very prescient. If you look at his quote when he explained why he voted against the Civil Rights Act, he said, I hate Jim Crow and I hate racial discrimination. But this will require, you know, this will require a police state to enforce. It will be, you know, the kind of, you know, it'll be neighbor spying on neighbor, businessman spying on businessman, you know, groups jockeying for their small advantage, making claims of discrimination. I mean, I encourage people. I think I quoted some here in the book. I encourage people to look at that. He was absolutely right. It took me a lifetime to realize Barry Goldwater was right on the Civil Rights Act. And by the way, I want to add, I may tell you something you don't know. I certainly hope that's true. And that is, he was the founder of the NAACP in Arizona. Did you know that? I knew he supported civil rights, but no, I didn't know that. Yes. Isn't that something? And this guy was called a racist. Yeah, yeah. It's really sad. It's sad what they did. I mean, there was a, it was a, it was a, you know, there was a righteous cause in the 1950s and 1960s, but it wasn't a righteous solution. Yeah, they, they took it too far. They, they went in the other direction, unfortunately. Okay. It's self-recommending. The origins evoke Richard Hanania. Yes. You can show it at the, don't, don't, don't be, we are sure that we're showing it for you. You're a joy, my friend. I'm delighted to have you. It's been a pleasure. Thank you very much.

A highlight from Eric Diaz's Journey From the University of Georgia to Coaching Rising American Alex Michelsen
"Welcome to the official tennis .com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis .com podcast. We are here with Eric Diaz. You remember the name? Eric is son of Manny Diaz, coach of Alex Mickelson, Werner Tan, and right now has his own thing called tier one performance out in the Irvine area. Welcome to the show, Eric. How's it going? Thanks for having me. Thanks for having me. It's great to be on. Great to be on. So I interviewed your dad probably about 2 months ago. That was, you know, we were poking fun about him redshirting Ethan Quinn, you know, not choosing not to play Ethan Quinn later. You know he wins NCAA the next year. It was kind of like, what were you thinking, right? Yeah, one of those tough ones. Oh yeah, it was kind of like, did you think he wasn't ready? Was he, did he think he wasn't ready? Like, you know, you probably could have won NCAA twice. That kind of thing but you obviously came from good tennis pedigree. So, I guess the first obvious question was what was it like growing up with your dad being Manny? You know, because I, it's hard not to take work home, right? Let's just put it that way. You're a tennis coach and a child of a tennis dad. Yeah. You know, I don't know. I think anybody that's been in tennis for a long time knows it's kind of a lifestyle a little bit. You know, there's definitely being the tennis coach and kind of, you know, working toward things but it's also, I don't know, the sport takes so much of you that sometimes, you know, it just feels like, you know, it's second nature. It's kind of a part of it. So, I mean, growing up in Athens, growing up around Dan McGill Complex was always a treat. That was back when NCAA's were kind of always hosted in Athens. So, I got to watch, you know, all the college greats. I grew up watching the Bryan brothers get, you know, sadly then they were kind of pegging some of our guys in doubles matches but, you know, it was really cool being able to sit court side, watch those guys and then, you know, be able to watch them on TV a little bit later. Really cool. Really cool experience growing up. Now, from a junior career, did your dad coach you your whole career or did he hire private coaches to sort of teach you technique? Because I know, you know, coaching at a program like UGA, it is very demanding and sometimes the children of the tennis coach lose out to the actual players and the people who are paying. So, did he coach you? How was that? You know, he coached me. I think he tried to coach me but at the same time, he also didn't want to put too much pressure on me to like, you know, really play tennis and go in. So, he kind of let it be my own thing. I started, I actually went to Athens Country Club, great little spot on the outside of Athens. Alan Miller was the main coach there. So, he helped me out a lot. He actually, he was on my dad's first, you know, assistant coaching team where they won a national title. I think he paired with Ola who now obviously has been with USGA for a while. I think they played doubles and I think they won a doubles title as well. So, I think Alan was a part of the first team championship and then he was also, you know, he won a doubles title there too. I think he might have won two. So, I spent a lot of time around him which was also, it was really cool. You know, it was a guy who was a part of the Georgia tennis family. Athens is really tight -knit like that and so it's special to be a part of that family both, I guess, through blood and through, you know, the alumni. It's cool. Now, let me ask you, did you ever consider going anywhere else, right? I mean, successful junior career, one of the top players in the nation, tons of options. You know, it could be like, you know, there's always sort of the, oh, his dad's going to give him a scholarship, right? You saw with Ben Shelton, you know, Brian Shelton. Obviously, he's going to look out for his kid. Did you ever aspire to like go to another top program or UCLA or Texas or Florida? I think growing up, you know, because I got to see all those teams play. You know, I remember in 1999, I looked up this guy who, he played number one for UCLA. I don't know, this guy showed up. I'm a little kid and he had half of his head was blue and the other half was gold and, you know, UCLA was firing it up. They were really good at the time. I remember that was my dad's first national title in 99. And, you know, ever since then, I really, you know, I looked up to the guys. Every now and then, I got to sneak on to a little travel trip and, you know, I got to see what it was like. But, I mean, for me, it was always Georgia. I thought Athens was a special place, you know, getting to see the crowds that they get there and being able to kind of just see the atmosphere of everybody caring about each other. You know, it was cool looking at other teams. You know, the Brian brothers had the cool Reebok shoes, you know, the UCLA guy with the different hair. But at the end of the day, it was always the dogs. It was always Georgia. So, I was really lucky when I got to be a part of that team and I got to kind of wear the G that, you know, through my junior years, I was always wearing it, you know, but I guess it was a little bit different when you're actually, you know, on the team and representing. I think it's a different feeling. Yeah. So, if you didn't go into tennis, what else would you be doing? Like, you know, I didn't, you know, I'm obviously coaching now, but I didn't go right into coaching. I went to work into pharmaceuticals like marketing, sales, you know, finance. It's always, I always find it interesting to say if I wasn't coaching, I got my degree, I would be doing this. Yeah. You know, if I was a little bit more prone, I think to just loving schoolwork and loving studying, you know, everybody's always told me that I would make a pretty good lawyer just because I'm a bit of a contrarian. I like to argue. I like to challenge everybody that's kind of around me. So, I'm always looking for a good argument. So, I'll go with that. Everybody's always told me, you know, maybe you should have been a lawyer. You argue a Hey, lot. well, I'm sure, I'm sure your tennis parents, right? The parents of the academy probably don't like that one, right? They like to be in control. They have the last say and be contrarian. A lot of the time they do. A lot of the time they do. Yeah. So, you're sort of like stepping out, right? Out of the shadow and you're now on the west coast out there in the with Irvine area tier one performance and quite honestly, making your own name. I know you've had opportunity to coach Alex Mickelson as well as, you know, Lerner, Tan who are both like doing real well, both like main draw this year at US Open. Tell me about the process of moving way west. Yeah. And starting your own thing. Well, you know, it kind of started with, you know, I took that leap and I moved away from home for, you know, the first time because obviously being born and raised and going to school at UGA. I took my first chance and I went to Boise State and I worked under Greg Patton for a year who I'd heard great things about and, you know, all were true. He's a great guy. I thought it was a fantastic experience. So, I did that for a year and then over the summer, the UGA swim coach's son that I kind of grew up with, he was in Newport and so I kind of came to visit and then, you know, all of a sudden the opportunity to be coaching out here, you know, came about and, you know, I did my due diligence a little bit. You know, I looked at the old tennis recruiting pages and, you know, I'm looking at all the talent over the last like 20 years and, you know, statistically, you look at the list and you're like, okay, you know, if I'm in this area and I give myself, you know, the right opportunities and I, you know, learn how to coach properly, you know, I feel like I've had some pretty good experience from some good mentors. You know, then I kind of thought, you know, okay, maybe I can kind of control my own destiny out here a little bit and, you know, over time, it's taken a lot but, you know, over time, I feel like I did get myself some pretty decent opportunities. So, when you first laid eyes on Mickelson, how old was he? He was 12. He was coming out to some point place. It was the first place I kind of rented courts. It was this old rundown beat up club but beautiful. There were some trees there. Nobody wanted it. The courts were kind of run down and everyone's like, oh no, nothing there and I was like, I'll take it. So, you know, it gave me space. It gave me courts. It gave me the ability to kind of try and market. I made things cheap so I could get a lot of kids out there and try and get a competitive environment going and luckily, you know, had a good bit of talent out there where, you know, the kids kind of attracted the kids and I was this young coach, 23, 24 and, you know, over time, you know, people started to kind of gain trust and realize, you know, this guy isn't that bad. So, you know, over time, it kind of, you know, worked in my favor and, you know, everything kind of worked out. I eventually switched clubs to a nicer one and, you know, you move up. You earn your stripes. Now, when you saw him, did you initially see, you know, like super talent because he won our ADK this summer and, you know, it was full of Steve Johnson, Su -Woo Kwong. It was Ethan Quinn. It was other names, right? Kanee Shakuri. And Alex, okay, you know, he got the USTA wildcard. He's a young kid. You know what I mean? Like, sort of under the radar and then he wins the whole tournament in finals Newport on the grass like a week later. So, did you see it right away? Was he like a typical kind of 12 -year -old throwing his racket, having tantrums? What was he like at 12? Alex has always turned on tantrums. But, you know, when he was 12, he was good. But, you know, I'll be honest, there were a handful of kids out there that, you know, Kyle Kang, who's had a lot of success. I saw him. Sebastian Goresney, who Alex won doubles with. There were a handful of others and, I mean, Alex, they were, he was good. If I thought that he would be this good, you know, at this point, I think I'd I don't think I saw that. But, you know, you definitely see that this kid's capable of playing at a pretty good level while he's young. And then, you know, as the years kind of go and then as you sort of see him and his personality kind of develop, you kind of recognize, you know, this, you know, this isn't too normal of a 16, 17, 18 -year -old kid. And then, you know, sure enough, eventually the results followed, which was pretty fun to watch. Yeah, I mean, I felt it was interesting because he was here with like his friend. Yeah. You know, not even like a coach, trainer, physio, nothing. Like him and his homeboy. Yeah. He didn't look like he played tennis. You know what I mean? So, yeah, it was like, it was interesting to show up without, you know, completing against guys who are here with like coaching that they're paying six -figure salaries and who are scouting, right? And for him to kind of move through the draw, honestly, I mean, you know, maybe he split sets once. Yeah. It was actually really interesting. He's an extremely competitive kid. And so, you know, throughout the last few years kind of as we've traveled to some events and as he's gone to some like by himself, you know, the whole understanding is, okay, how well do you really understand, you know, your day -to -day process? How well are you able to, you know, nowadays, you know, with challengers, everything you can stream, you can watch. So, you know, both myself and, you know, Jay, the other coach that's here and helping him out, you know, we watch, we communicate. But, you know, at the end of the day, you know, it was one of those big decisions, okay, are you going to go to college or are you going to go pro? And he's kind of weighing those two things. And it's, you know, if you really think you want to be a pro, show me. And so it's one of those things, luckily, when he's young, you know, you have the, you know, it's kind of freedom. If he loses some matches, okay, you're young. If, you know, you win some matches, okay, great. You're young. So it's one of those things where, you know, we really kind of wanted to see, you know, what he's able to do sort of on his own. How well can he manage emotionally? How well can he, you know, create some game plans and stick to his day -to -day routines? And he, I would say he passed. And did he officially turn pro? He officially turned pro, yeah. Yeah. So I know UGA was going to be where he was going. I know he was undecided this summer, but UGA was going to, was there a little bit of an inside man kind of happening here, right? You know, I mean, you know, I think that, you know, I'll definitely say, I think he had some exposure to hearing about, you know, some Georgia greatness. I think that for sure. But, you know, I'll say it was his decision. Ultimately, I tried to not put too much pressure or expectation on where he was going to go. You know, I think Georgia has a lot to offer. So I think, you gone that route, I think it would be, you know, I don't think we can really fail if, you know, you're going and you're trying to be a tennis player and that's a place you choose. I think it's a pretty good place. Now tell us about Lerner Tan. I'll admit as a player that I hadn't had the opportunity to watch too much. I had not watched him in the challenges at all. But was he also sort of in the program at a young age or did he just sort of come later on? My partner actually, you know, kind of helped him when he was young because Levitt Jay used to be incorporated at Carson, which was kind of where Lerner kind of had his, you know, beginnings. He was a little bit more, I guess I'll say, you know, his talent was Federation spotted, I guess you could say as to where Alex was kind of, you know, the guy on the outside a little figuring his own way. Lerner was kind of the guy that everybody kind of thought was, you know, the guy. Right. And so, you know, it's been fun kind of watching him, you know, see his transition, you know, from juniors to now, you know, kind of becoming, you know, the top of juniors, you know, winning Kalamazoo the last two years and his transition. It's been fun to see. So, you know, I've seen a lot of him out of the last, you know, two and a half to three years. So it's been, it's definitely been a different transition. I feel like, you know, it's a little bit fire and ice there. You know, Alex is the fiery one screaming a good bit and Lerner is the silent killer. So it's, they're definitely different, which I think, you know, is pretty refreshing and it's kind of cool to see them both have success in their own accord. So tell us about Tier 1 then. So how many courts, obviously you grew up, I mean, like, you know, I started in the park years ago, right? In Chicago Park, right? And now I got 27 courts. But tell us about Tier 1 performance now. Where are you? How many courts do you now have? How many kids are you serving? Yeah, we're in Newport Beach right now, which is great. Weather's nice. We have, right now, we're running our program out of only five ports. It's not that big. You know, we take a lot of pride in just kind of being individually, you know, development based. I feel like if you're in our program, you're going to have, you know, a good bit of time from the coaches. You're probably going to have a chance to hit with some of the top guys. We try to be really selective with who we kind of have. Just because in Southern California, it's really difficult to, you know, get your hands on a ton of courts. There's so many people in tennis. There's only a few clubs now. You know, pickleball, even at our club right now, you know, pickleball is booming. You know, so many people are playing. It's keeping clubs alive, which, you know, I think is nice. But at the same time, I would love to see, you know, a lot of tennis courts and tennis opportunity. But, you know, it is what it is. Yeah, man, pickleball is definitely taking over. You see clubs getting rid of one court, two courts, and they think that it's not that big of an impact. But I mean, two courts really makes a difference in terms of being able to spread kids out, get them more time, get more balls and more balls at the time. But it's, you know, I think in tennis, if we want to fight them off, we've got to market better and we've got to grow, right? They're in this growth sort of stage and we're sort of stagnant, you know, so it's not like we're not leaving the club with a lot of choices other than to diversify, you know what I mean? Right. Yeah, yeah, yeah, for sure. So, let me ask you that. So, you've obviously had two kids that are going on. What do you tell that next parent, whose kid's 14, right, may get to see learner Alex come to the academy and number one, they want to homeschool, right, or ask you whether or not they should homeschool or B, you know, whether or not they should choose to go to college or, you know, turn pro. How are you advising parents? Because I get the question all the time. Should we homeschool, right? Should we do whatever? And I always, you know, the answer is always, it depends. Yeah. But what would be your answer in terms of homeschooling to train? Well, look, I definitely think that if your primary goal is to be a tennis player and I think, you know, if you're an athlete and that's kind of what you want to do, I think there's a lot of benefit in homeschooling just because, you know, it enables you to travel. You know, if I get to the ITF level, you know, I need to be able to travel. Those tournaments start on Monday and they go through Friday. So, you know, if I'm in a regular school, if I'm a high school kid, you know, that's a pretty difficult life for me to be able to justify or to, you know, be able to get my excused absences and stuff like that. You know, we're definitely big. You know, if you show me a 14 and under kid and I feel like I had pretty good experience in this just because I saw a lot of kids from the age of 12 to 14, you know, I got to see an entire kind of generation out of SoCal and a lot of them were pretty good. You know, the one thing I think, you know, when you're 12, 13, 14 years old, I think the primary thing kind of for level, obviously it matters how you're doing it, but I think the primary thing is the repetition. You know, I saw a ton of kids where they had a bunch of practices and I knew that that kid probably, you know, had 30%, 40 % more time than some of the other kids. And, you know, sure enough, that kid is more competent at keeping the ball in play. You know, they're able, you know, they've just seen and touched more balls. So, you know, they're going to make more balls. I think it's a balance. I think it really depends on the parents. I think it really depends on the kid. And I think it depends on the environment that they'll be in if they are going to be homeschooled. You know, I will say that, you know, we've had a handful of kids kind of switch from high school to homeschooled and they're in our program. But I feel like there's still strong social aspects in our program. You know, all the boys are tight. They compete a lot. They, you know, I feel like they get their social, you know, they go to lunch. And just kind of our standards are really high. I think this past year we had five kids that graduated that all went to IVs. So, you know, it's totally possible whether you're homeschooled or whether you're in school, I think, to, you know, kind of pursue academic excellence. I think, you know, just because you're doing one thing and not the other, I don't think that that necessarily, you know, takes that away from you. I think tennis can open a ton of doors. And I think I kind of, you know, we've kind of seen that in the last few years. I've seen a lot more tennis kids choosing IV ever since 2020, I feel. I feel like the IVs have been pretty hot, especially for some blue chip players, which I think, you know, if you look prior to 2020, I think the percentages took a pretty drastic jump, which is interesting to see. Yeah, you know, it's funny, you know, in some markets you see people playing for the scholarship and in some other markets you see them playing for entrance, right, into the Princeton, the Harvards. And one of the myths, like, I think if you think about basketball or football, right, the better basketball football players are obviously choosing the SEC, right, Pac -12, whatever that is. But in tennis, you know, I think that, you know, your academics and your tennis have to be, like, at the top scale to go, just because you're not like a bad tennis player if you go to Harvard, you know what I mean? Like, the kid that goes to Harvard or makes the team probably could have gone to PCU, right, or Florida or whatever, you know what I mean? And so it is interesting to see the number of people who say, yes, I've spent 30 grand on tennis for the past eight years and I'm still willing to pay for college, right, because I got into Princeton, Harvard, Yale, etc. But I think it's a big myth where, you know, the United States is so basketball focused, we see Harvard basketball as, like, okay, that's everyone that didn't get chosen by the Illinois, the Wisconsin, the Michigan. And it's not the same, you know what I mean? Yeah, it's different for sure. So when you think about, like, the Ivies, right, you see a lot of kids go to East Coast and you think about, you know, COVID obviously changed something with the home school, you know, sort of situation. People who never considered that it was possible were like, okay, well, we've been living at home for a year and a half and doing online studies, it's not that bad, you know, they're more focused with their time. Did you see more people from families who you thought would not have done it try it post COVID? Yeah, definitely. I think the really popular thing that a lot of people are doing now is kind of a hybrid schedule, which I actually really like a lot. At least in California, I don't know if the schooling system is different everywhere else. I know it was different where I was from. But a lot of these kids, you know, they'll go to school from 8 to 1130 or 8 to 12. And, you know, they have their three hours where, you know, I don't know how they stagger their classes and stuff like that. But I know that pretty much every kid at every school in SoCal is at least able to do this if they so choose. And so they're able to get released around 12 or something. And, you know, they're able to be at afternoon practice and get a full block in. You know, for me, that still enables you to get the hours you need on court and to be able to maintain some of that social. And, you know, if you become, you know, really, really good, I guess, okay, by junior year, maybe you could consider, okay, maybe I should take this a little bit more seriously, maybe I should go full time homeschool. Or, you know, a lot of these kids are in a place where it's, you know, I'm comfortable with my tennis, I like where it's at, I feel like it'll give me opportunity in college. My grades are great. And, you know, maybe that person's a little more academically inclined. And, you know, they want to have a career and they feel like tennis is that great stepping stone. Which I think is a really cool thing about our sport is it just opens a tremendous amount of doors. I feel like if you figure out how to develop and be a good tennis player and how to compete well in tennis, you can you can apply that to almost everything in life. Yeah. So you talk about opening doors, right? When Alex or Lerner were sort of deciding whether to walk through door number one, which is college, or door number two, which is which is obviously turning pro. Right. How did you advise them? You know what I mean? If I say, hey, you know what? Take a couple wildcards. If you went around or two, maybe you go to college. If you win a tournament, maybe you stay out there. If an agency locks you into a deal, right? Then, you know, they normally know what good looks like and they normally have like the ear of the Nike, the Adidas, right? Then you turn pro. What was your advice in terms of if and when, right? Yeah. For those who ask. Well, they were both in different places. I'm gonna start with Lerner cuz he's younger. He actually, you know, did a semester in college. You know, Lerner finished high school, I think, when he was sixteen, sixteen and a half. And so, obviously, your eligibility clock starts, you know, six months after you finish your high school. So, for him, it was, you know, he was so young, he didn't really have much pro experience at that time. You know, he did great things in juniors. You know, he won Kalamazoo. He got his wild card into the men's that year and then, you know, he played a little bit of pro kind of and then, you know, that that January, he went in and and did a semester at USC which I think was a good experience for him socially. He had some eligibility problems which, you know, only let him play about five, six matches toward the end of the year which was kind of disappointing and then, you know, he won Kalamazoo again and so, you know, that was the second trip there and then, you know, by then, he had a little bit more exposure with, you know, agencies and brands and kind of, you know, the stuff that you'd like to see that'll actually give you the financial security to kind of, you know, chase your dream and pass up, you know, the the education, I guess, for the time being. So, you know, I felt like that was really the security was a big was a big thing for him. You know, prior to winning Kalamazoo for the second time, you know, he still had Junior Grand Slams to play. He wasn't playing men's events. So, for him being that age, you know, it was, well, you know, I'm I'm not in a massive rush so why not get a semester in and I think he had a great time. He really liked it. I mean, he he speaks pretty positively about the dual matches. He actually follows college tennis now a little bit more. You know, he will talk about some dual matches which I think is pretty cool and you know, I think it gave him some confidence getting to play for university, getting to represent, you know, seeing that university promotes you. I think there's a lot of benefits there and now, you know, he's got an alumni base. You know, people talk about all, you know, he's a USC Trojan and stuff like that. You know, you see it at all different tournaments. You know, guys are wearing a USC hat and, you know, hey, learner, da da da and you know, I think that that's pretty cool to be a part of, you know, a big family of people who are proud that, you know, they can say they played in the same place and then Alex. Alex was, you know, he was a little old for his grade and he was one that he committed and, you know, the whole time him and learner kind of, you know, talking and, you know, about going pro and da da da da. You know, obviously, it was their dream. You know, I just kept telling Alex, you know, I don't want to hear it. I don't want to hear it until, you know, it's a real problem and so, you know, he gets to 400 in the world and, you know, it's what you do. You get to 400. You know, it's good but at the end of the day, you know, you're not, your life's not changing because you're 400 in the world. You know, so he's 400 in the world and he's, you know, saying stuff to me and I'm like, I could not care less you're going to college and then it was, you know, this was probably in January, February, you know, he starts to kind of do a little bit better and I think at that point, I recognized that he was better than a lot of the guys kind of at the challenger level. You know, just from my perspective, I was seeing kind of what it was, what it was to be 300, what it was to be 200 and I think at that point, like February, March, I fully knew that he was good enough to be there and to be winning those matches but at the same time, you know, having financial security, having set, you know, all of those factors that kind of go into whether I'm going to pass up my education and go pro. You know, it's a big decision and so I remember we were putting it off. I just said, you know, nothing till US Open. I was like, we're not, we're not talking about college till US Open. I said, you know, when we get to US Open, you finish US Open, you have that exposure, you know, we see what happens in those two weeks and then, you know, then we'll kind of make a decision but until then, like, don't even think about it. Don't talk about it. Don't care. You're going to school and I think that mentality really helped him kind of just play free. He was, you know, I'm not playing to go pro. I'm trying to do my job in school, finish my high school. I'm going to tournaments, playing great, just trying to compete and, you know, lucky for him, you know, well, I guess it's not lucky at all. That kid worked his absolute tail off but, you know, he had that success in Chicago at your club and then, you know, he made that little Newport run and I think by then, that was his third or fourth former top 10 win and, you know, he won his challenger. He final the challenger. He'd semied another one. He had kind of shown and, you know, some people have gotten attention and they started believing in him and so then, you know, that's when that big decision kind of came but I feel like for him, he really established himself, improved himself amongst pros which I think is an interesting thing because a lot of the time when you see these juniors kind of go pro sub 18, a lot of the time, it's because they had tremendous junior success which then made them, you know, they had grand slam success and stuff like that but Alex didn't have any of that. You know, Alex was kind of the late bloomer that, you know, in the last year when he was already 18 and aged out of ITF, the kid really just took it to a new level and, you know, I think he really showed that he's kind of ready for what the tour has to offer.
Fresh update on "three hour" discussed on IGNITE THE SPARK WITHIN w/ Sebastian Hernandez
"And this is where sometimes ayahuasca gets bad reputation because whenever you look into somebody's being hurt on ayahuasca, it's one of those things. Either a shaman is not a real shaman, either the ayahuasca is not really ayahuasca, or the place was not physically safe, or they did not provide people with the proper preparation, people didn't follow it. And, you know, mixing antidepressants or mixing ayahuasca with drugs like cocaine. Most of the bad stories happened then. And, you know, just because it involves ayahuasca in the end, they blame it on ayahuasca, even though it was not the ayahuasca's fault. You know, I want to know about your story. How did you get started with ayahuasca? It's a long one because I was first drawn to ayahuasca out of curiosity. And also a mix of curiosity and pain. I guess I was looking for some healing and some change in my life. Back then, I did not really accept it myself. I was not yet ready to understand that something was wrong with me. But I think subconsciously I was drawn to it because I was looking for healing. Even back then, if you'd asked me, I'd say I was just curious. But I don't think that now, as time has passed. But what led me to starting a retreat? I started working with medicine for myself for my own healing. What it did to me was, it lifted the pain. I was really depressed and the direction was in life. So what it did was, it allowed me to feel better and start actually doing something to improve my life. What caused that? You don't mind sharing. Can you pinpoint what caused the depression? What caused the downfall? I think it was a lack of direction in my life. So here's what happened. I was originally a marine mechanical engineer. I was working off shell and gas. Then I quit the job, went traveling, ended up in Colombia. And I was well off, meaning I had some money saved. So I bought an apartment and I was renting it. And I was renting a couple of rooms in this finger that I was living in. For those who don't know, a finger in Colombia is like this little estate that I was renting. And I had some passive income sources. So I was okay. But I was just okay. And I didn't know what to do with my free time. I was like living, you know, the dream passive income. I was semi-retired and I was miserable because I knew, I know my potential, I know my strength. And I was just, I had no idea what to do. I would go and I would take this course and then I would take this course. And I was just lost and really sad. And it came to the point where I was like, something is really wrong with me. Like, I don't know. And this is when I, so by then I tried ayahuasca. But when I started feeling that I was like, okay, this can help me. And I started really treating it as a medicine. I started going regularly to drink ayahuasca to heal myself and to find that direction left. So three things, three or four things happened at around the same time. I was going to drink ayahuasca a lot and I had to drive three hours every time to do it. Because where I'm here now, there were no ayahuasca retreats. So it started giving me that idea that how lovely it would be to find a retreat nearby. Or maybe start one. But it was not clear back then. Then a person came to my life who wanted to rent my Finca to run ceremonies here. Which for me was the biggest sign. Then this person, then me going to jungle and having this whole vision about healing people with hands. And it's a complicated one. And then this person, when I came back from the jungle, we started doing retreats together. Then him basically trying to screw me over. Meaning me spending a lot of money to organize everything. And him not paying me not even well enough to cover for the wood that we burned during the ceremony. That kind of thing. So all of that together made me realize one day that I have an ayahuasca retreat. Because I bought everything that I need and I met all the connections. And it just started growing from then. Because we started with doing one ceremony a month and then one weekend a month. Then one week and then two weeks. And then now two and a half weeks every month. And it just grew. Of course there's a lot of work involved in it. I can't really take all the credit and say one day I sat down and said I'm going to start an ayahuasca retreat. It was maybe in the back of my head. But it kind of all came from the mix of all those things. Which I now think is a good thing. Because it was not necessarily a monetary thing at first. It started as a passion. As a desire to explore. And then eventually now, I can't deny it, it became a business. Because we have 15 workers, kitchen ladies, facilitators. This whole retreat center that we bought four months ago. I have five people, construction crew, building cabins. And it became very busy. But in the beginning it was just a guy who wanted to drink medicine from home. That's so... Dude, that's inspiring, bro. I don't know if, as I mentioned at the beginning, that's my vision. Right now, that's my focus, is to head back to Colombia, but actually to Santa Marta. And it's to go inside, close to the Sierra Nevada, and start a healing center out there. So to hear you and how you started, that's inspiring, brother. Really, my hat's off to you, dude. Really, it's fucking dope. And we need more healing centers. Like one of the... You know how the universe works, right? So maybe I seeked you out to do a podcast because I want to do my Jehovah's Witness thing and spread the word. But maybe it was also to come here and talk to you about how it is to start a retreat and how it feels like. And also to show you that it's possible. In a bit more than two years, I went from not even having that idea to having a right now the most well-rated ayahuasca retreat in South America, I believe. That is amazing. That's amazing. You can do it as well. And again, that's where I was going with that. That's like right now. So I keep getting this vision of like zombies. Yeah? And it's like zombies. And it's like all around the world, they're hungry for healing because that's really what they're seeking is healing. And the more healing centers we have around the world, the more we're going to be able to actually make a difference for what's coming. Because I believe that what's coming is a big shift and we're going to need as many light workers, as many people as possible doing this work. You just got goosebumps. It's giving me goosebumps because I've had my vision is of a wave of people that are coming here to heal because they realize there is nothing else that helps them. And it's us basically building a retention wall to be able to sustain that wave. So I totally agree. There will never be enough healing retreats because here's the statistics, 30% of people in the US are depressed and only half percent of people in the US have had ayahuasca. That leaves us with 29.5% of all Americans. And that's probably widely underestimated because not everyone admits they're depressed. So the wave is coming and the world needs healing. There's mental health crisis and I wish you all the best. If you're going to start a retreat and heal people, I'm on your side, man. So now I'm curious, are you ultimately wanting to become a shaman? So I'll go back to my vision with the healing. And this is for those who don't like woo-woo stuff, which I'm sure they're not listening to your podcast, but it's still, even to this day, it's uncomfortable for me to speak about it because I come from a very non-spiritual background. So I'm still sort of stretching my limits of my woo-woo lingo. But I had the vision where ayahuasca showed me precisely how to heal people with my hands. And what it means is putting my hands on people and taking energies from them or putting energies in them. And it was really precise. I went to this place where I describe it as if you open a bonnet on a car, you see engine working. It's kind of like I lifted the bonnet of a universe and I could see how it works. And it showed me all of that. And not only that, it actually showed me how to use it. In the same ceremony, there was a person with a headache and he was asking for pills for headache and medicine guided me on how to take his headache away. And I kid you not how it worked. So it's not a woo-woo thing. And since then, a couple times, maybe once a year in the ceremony, I get a calling from the medicine to go and perform some energy work. So it's not something I can do on demand, but it does happen to me occasionally. And whenever it happens, some people really feel it and something really changes in them and it can be documented by a weight increase or relief in symptoms. I'm not making it up. And the only reason I'm qualifying myself this way is like, I know it's really hard to believe and understand. But in that original vision of me healing people, it was really clear. And the medicine told me that eventually I'd have to learn to drink medicine for myself and give medicine to but one person only. So I'm never going to be a shaman and guide a group of people. And I never set out to do it. Hopefully by the time I'm maybe 60, I can develop enough where I can perform that feat on my own. But it was really clear. It was a vision of me standing bare feet on the grass. It kind of explained to me that I had to have connection with the earth. And having my hand on the person and the person was on something that looked like a massage table and I was moving some energies. And it comes to the point where even sometimes in my ayahuasca vision, when I open my eyes, I can see people and I can see their organs and it shows me which ones are healthy and which ones are not. It's crazy, man. You wouldn't believe it. But right now I'm mostly just, when I came back with that vision, I thought like, what can I do to start doing that? And every title told me, just drink more ayahuasca. But meanwhile, what can I do? And then this whole retreat thing happened. So I kind of think that right now I'm healing people, not with my hands, indirectly, with my fingers, typing on a phone and running a business. But eventually I would like to come to the point where I can go deeper and actually learn how to do that. That's awesome, dude. And I love that because similar, like I do want to be a shaman, right? And I feel like that I am in walking this path. However, I do not call myself a shaman. I call myself an apprentice. Yes. And I will continue to be an apprentice. And I say that I declare myself a shaman when I turn 75 years old. When I turn 75, then I'll be like, right, now I declare myself a shaman because I feel like I've gone through enough experience to be able to declare it. But till then, it's like, nope, I'm an apprentice, an apprentice, an apprentice. Yes. And it's like, and again, it's the medicine shows you the path. Like the medicine will guide you. The medicine will tell you when you're ready and when, nope, don't do it yet. Like, you know, like there's a feeling inside, you know, when you're ready and you know when you're not right. And sometimes people go against that. Oh, I know I'm ready. And it's like, oh, really? Then I watch what shows you. It's like, no, you weren't right. But I feel that that is, that's the journey. That's walking the path, but always being in that student mindset. But similar to you had visions of, and actually with this last vision, with this last wave was of not even touching people. It was of this wave of like zombies coming towards me, like super angry and mad and like wanting to like kill me and fight me. And I just stuck my hands out and just said, heal. And as they came closer to me, they transformed and just healed and kept walking behind. And so as they got closer, I didn't, nope, just my energy just, nope, heal. And they just transformed, transformed. And it's that like I've heard of, there's a gentleman I heard a story of and I'm trying to remember what his name was, but I can't remember it. I'm like, but his story impacted me. I'm like, I don't know if it's the truth, but if that's possible, I want it. Right. And he was telling me how this gentleman had his energy, his Kundalini activation, so strong, his magnetism so strong that he would come into a room, just arrive into a room and his energy would be felt by everybody. That women would actually start to get wet orgasmically just by being in his presence because of the energy that he cultivated in his surrounding. Like that is like the type of energy of being able to heal through your own aura. Right. And that's that. And so we're actually doing a retreat in Santa Marta, a four-day retreat in Cuentro Maíco. And so we're actually bringing down a maestro from Mexico. Well, no, he's Venezuelan, but he's been living in Mexico and practicing in Mexico.
A highlight from #462 Biggest Risk for Bitcoin right NOW?!
"Welcome to The Crypto Show, your podcast for everything around crypto, blockchain, bitcoin and more. Here is your host, international blockchain expert, serial entrepreneur and investor, Dr. Julian Hasp. Are we seeing some of the biggest risks ahead for bitcoin, for crypto as a whole? Hey and welcome to today's video. My name is Julian. On my channel, it's all about making you crypto fit. I discuss the beautiful world of decentralization, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, much, much more. I try to kind of look at this from various angles. Obviously, on the one hand, as the CEO of the cake group, talk from the retail side, enterprise side, the R &D side, as an investor, personal investor, obviously also from the regulatory side. A lot of authorities we also talk to. And yeah, not only from crypto, but also from macro. And so from all of this, I do actually foresee that over probably the next 12 to 18 months, we may have some of the biggest risks for bitcoin ahead in a long time. Now, I don't think these risks are bigger than what we have seen maybe in its very early years, but probably if I look at over the past couple of years, I do think we have some major risk ahead. And in this video, I really want to highlight that. I want to explain that. I want to talk to you about price targets or potential price targets and really kind of dig a bit into the nitty gritty. Maybe at the beginning, think about it. What's the biggest risk in your side or your opinion? You can let me know either in the chat here or you can also let me know in the comments afterwards. No peeking, no cheating. Maybe be creative yourself. Now, obviously, we have seen a lot of things happening. We have seen collapses from FDX, from three hours capital, from Terra Luna. We have had all the Tether FUD with regulation, SEC crackdowns. Now, what if this is all small to what may be ahead in the next 12 to 18 months? Let me start with cargo cults. Cargo cults, if you don't know, actually stem from the Second World War. Actually, after the Second World War. And what happened there was the US was fighting back the Japanese and they were going from island to island. And so, obviously, these islanders, very, very basic. They didn't really, they haven't really seen those airplanes. They didn't really understand what was all happening. But basically, the Americans, they all came in. They had to build the landing strips, the launching strips for the airports. And way the this name came was what these Americans obviously did. After they had built all those things, they all came there and they kind of, when the planes came, they had to kind of help the planes land and, you know, they built the towers and then they put all the special gear on and they helped the planes land. And then the planes threw off the cargo and the cargo obviously fed the soldiers and the soldiers wanted to be really kind to the islanders and they kind of gave all this cargo a lot of things to the islanders. So for the islanders, this was almost like God. And so what the islanders thought, what was happening was, they looked at the actions that the Americans did and they tried to replicate that once the islanders, once the soldiers left, especially after the war because the cargo didn't come anymore. And the islanders then went and they tried to kind of replicate what the Americans did because they thought if they were to stand there and kind of give the landing signs and put on a special hat and kind of, I don't know, sit in the tower and kind of talk into something, then maybe those planes would appear again and would drop off the cargo. And now obviously we understand that this didn't happen. But the crazy thing, and that's where the name comes from, there were these gurus, right? There were people who said, oh, I can predict what's going to happen and I'm the one who has the wisdom and literally cults were built around these people. Oh, it's not going to happen today, it's going to happen in a month. Oh, it's going to happen in a year or it's going to happen in 10 years, right? It became a sect -ish following and the crazy thing, it's even lasting almost until today. There's cargo cults on those islands still today. They almost looked at like gods and it's insane to kind of think of that. And so obviously looking at this from the outside, it's very easy to kind of understand what went wrong. And what went wrong was that the actual causation, the reasons weren't truly understood. And that can be extremely dangerous if you don't really understand why things have happened. And so one of the easiest things, in my opinion, very easy for cargo cults to kind of fall for is chart analysis. Because in a technical analysis, what you do is you kind of go and you say, look, in the past this is what happened and so we're seeing a similar pattern right now, so next the same thing is going to happen. What you should be doing is you should be looking what happened in this point in time. Is it likely that this thing happens again? So the same thing as basically the islanders went. They went there and they kind of made all these signs. That was irrelevant. What they should have done is they should have looked, is the US still fighting the war against the Japanese in the Second World War? And so they should have realized that it's a different pattern, not because the pattern makes the price, but because the events make the price. And so to me, this is so fundamentally important. And what I have seen, sadly, over the past couple of years, we've seen this with stock to flow, with Bitcoin. We have seen this with, doesn't matter, in El Salvador with the volcano bonds. And we've seen this with so many things, right? We've seen this with store value. We've seen this with, I don't know, these four -year cycles. We have seen this, oh, the 200 -day line is never going to get broken. Then the 200 -week line is never going to get broken. Then this thing is never going to get broken. But at the end, right, you need to understand that this is just a cargo cult. It's nothing else. You need to understand what happened at that point that it turned around and what's going to happen today. Is it going to be the same event that's going to make something turn around? And so to me, the biggest issue I see right now in Bitcoin, actually, are these cargo cults. It is that people don't fully reflect and think what made the price go up. In the past, is this the same thing that is going to happen right now? I actually think this is fundamentally the biggest risk. To me, that's a bigger risk than Tether. I think the Tether risk is there, but I think it's not relevant enough anymore, especially with these interest rates. I don't think that the risk is Satoshi or, I don't know, having some elliptic curve that, I don't know, was designed by the NSA and it's just there to kind of steal money from you. I don't think a potential Binance blow up or a Quobee right now, I don't know, I don't think these are massive kind of issues. I don't think if the ETF, for example, doesn't get approved, I don't think that would be such a massive issue. I think the issue is if people don't fundamentally understand what actually drove interest in the past and is this going to drive interest right now? And you have to be fundamentally honest to yourself, and I think that's just the hard part. And what people do is just like in these cargo calls on the islands, they're going to come up with something new, they're going to procrastinate, they're going to delay, they're going to say, you know what, this time it didn't work, but the next time it's going to work. And obviously, people all being hungry, all waiting for the cargo to come down again are just going to follow and they're going to believe the gospel without actually reflecting honestly and realizing, huh, maybe this is actually a bit different. So this to me is the biggest danger. And the biggest danger comes down to one fundamental thing that I've been trying to say for, I don't know, for years I would say, but I've been very vocal about this over the past couple of months especially, and that is that I fundamentally don't believe that Bitcoin is a currency, it's not a cryptocurrency, I don't think that's a metric to look for or something to strive for. And it has become very clear and there's also something that, I don't know, I think the first time I discussed this was probably in 2017, also a bit of an inflation topic at that point, I discussed it, that I don't think Bitcoin is an inflation hedge. For me, it was always digital gold, meaning not gold as an inflation hedge but more of a hedge against Wall Street, against kind of the insurance of the centralized kind of banking system. So nothing about money printing per se, nothing about inflation, none of those, not a store of wealth or like this safety storage, all these things, it's not backed by any data to do that. And I know people keep selling this or keep talking about this but it's actually not true and that's the same thing with the cargo cults. It's such a fundamental problem. So what the data actually shows and that's basically the two things to me that always kind of showed what is going to drive the Bitcoin price. Number one, that's been the main driver right now, has been speculation. And speculation obviously has a lot to do with M2, simply not so much because of inflation but because people having excess liquidity, right? Inflation is actually not what's going to give people extra money. It's going to give them extra numbers but these numbers tend to go up slower than their living cost. So they tend to have subjectively less purchase power, right? So they have more currency but they have less purchase power. And so during times of speculation, they actually have the exact opposite or they try to kind of squeeze extra currency out, kind of forgave on something else and just kind of double down on speculation. And we have seen this, right? We have seen this during the 2016, 2017 kind of rally with ICOs, like extra liquidity in the market. We've obviously seen this with 2020, 2021.
Kerry Hines and Michael Hopkins Reflect as They Approach 900 Episodes
"When I think about how far we have come, on the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, I am just taken aback. We're talking about 900 plus episodes. Wow. So, yeah, so I've gotta say, because you've been with us as the host of the Vet Talk Radio Show. You've done quite a bit of broadcast in your own right of your 30 minute weekly show, the Vet Talk Radio Show. So you understand, probably better than most, how big this is. Oh yeah, very big. So Michael, I'm gonna ask you if you can kind of help us to put it into words. What goes through your mind when you think of this? 900 or 900 plus episodes, that's a lot of a three hour broadcast of the Hair Radio Morning Show. So what kind of goes through your mind, sir? Lots of things, Carrie. One of them is the excitement. It is so exciting to be a part of 900 shows. It is so exciting. A lot of people don't get that opportunity to be a part of something like this. And I'm a part of something like this, and it just blows me away to be a part of something that's just bigger than you, is bigger than me, is just huge. A lot of people do not get that opportunity. No, they don't. They just don't. And Michael, I just want to jump in and say, it feels like you've been with us for all 900 episodes. You fit in with our broadcast. That is almost like you're part of the fabric of the All New Hair Radio Morning Show, because you are. We get to host the show, Michael Hopkins, Carrie Hines, and Nicole Marie. And I've got to say, Michael, you've been with us for hundreds of episodes, literally. And folks have come to expect you every day to have that cup of coffee or a cup of tea first thing in the morning. And it just means something. So is it a surprise that you've done so well fitting into, you know, the hair and beauty format, as we know that you come from a military background, almost the antithesis of hair and beauty, if you will, although there is a lot of commonality and spillover. But is it a big surprise? I would imagine it to be a little bit of a surprise that you kind of fit in and of kind made a lot of this. You know, you've made it your home. What do you think of that, Michael? Yes, Carrie, it is a big surprise, because as you said, I come from a, I guess you'd say, a different world. I come from a military, law enforcement, security, kind of high -level government contracting world. And this is a whole new world for me, the hair and the beauty community. It's a whole new world. And what I'm finding, Carrie, is that I'm enjoying this world.
A highlight from SPECIAL REPORT: Inside Sam Bankman-Fried's Trial Defense Episode 1
"FTX collapsed this week from crypto king to criminal suspects. The less generous view is that you have committed a massive fraud. I mean, I'm deeply sorry. Saying sorry means nothing. I made a series of mistakes that seem they don't just seem dumb. They seem like the type of mistakes I could see myself having ridiculed someone else for having me. I'm Zach Guzman. You're listening to the SPF defense podcast, an exclusive coinage investigation. I've met SPF in person three times. Once when he just bought the naming rights to the Miami Heat's arena, once in the Bahamas at their huge extravaganza with Tom Brady, and once at his parents' home under house arrest, ankle bracelet included. In fact, I was the last journalist to interview him before he was sent to prison for breaking his bail agreement. I showed up to his parents' house near Stanford's campus on a Sunday and was immediately greeted by a security guard who informed me I'd have to leave all my electronics with him outside. I had interviewed Sam plenty of times, just never after being wandered down with a metal detector, and certainly never while he was under house arrest. Three hours later, Sam agreed to answer questions from the coinage community and surprisingly handed me about 50 pages of documents outlining his defense strategy, and exactly what he says led to FTX's downfall. After reading it through and realizing neither myself nor anyone at coinage is an attorney, we brought in the best person we could think of, Mark Litt, the government's lead prosecutor in his case against Bernie Madoff. This is part one of our series investigating SBF's upcoming defense. In this episode, Mark Litt provides his unique insight on the unanswered questions surrounding the relationship between SBF and Caroline Ellison, his girlfriend turned cooperating witness. You were one of the former lead prosecutors on the Bernie Madoff case, one of the biggest Ponzi schemes, not the largest Ponzi scheme in American history. When you look at that case and compare it and contrast it with what's being alleged that Sam Bankman Fried did to St. Alameda and FTX, what do you see? Here, the government is alleging among other things that promises were made to investors and promises were broken, and the promises were material. So there's a couple of charges relating to derivatives, trading fraud and conspiracy to commit that fraud. There's one I think for conspiracy to commit securities fraud and the substantive count of securities fraud. There is money laundering attached to those. So it's not a Ponzi scheme, but it's fraud. It just happens to be in a wrapper of cryptocurrency, which is novel. Well, just start on what you would do if you were Sam's attorney. Well, what I would have been doing and what I would be doing right now is developing whatever I can to cross the cooperators who are going to be critical to the prosecution. When you look at what's happening here and the fact as this goes to trial that you're going to need to convince 12 jurors that a crime was carried out, how does that element of cryptocurrency or the fact that maybe it's not as simple as an outright Ponzi scheme, what does that do to the prosecution side, defense side when you think about what's going to happen in this case? I don't think it changes it all that much. In a trial involving an equity stock or a bond, you may have to do some explanation to the jury about some of the terminology they're going to hear about. Cryptocurrency is newer. You might have to do a little bit more of that to provide context. But the case isn't about cryptocurrency. It's about, again, representations made and not kept. It's about taking money from one pocket and using it for purposes of another company in another pocket without the investor knowing that. That's not hard for a jury to understand. The defense may want to make it about cryptocurrency and go off on a tangent about the intricacies of trading and all of that, but it's not really relevant to the charges.
A highlight from Sunday of the Twenty-Fifth Week in Ordinary Time A Time of Lectio Divina for the Discerning Heart Podcast
"A time of Lectio Divina for the discerning heart. Sunday of the 25th week in ordinary time. As you begin, take a deep breath and exhale slowly. For the next few moments, surrender all the cares and concerns of this day to the Lord. Say slowly from your heart, Jesus, I trust in you. You over. take Become aware that he is with you, looking upon you with love, wanting to be heard deep within your heart. A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew chapter 20 verses 1 through 16. Jesus said to his disciples, the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner going out at daybreak to hire workers for his vineyard. He made an agreement with the workers for one denarius a day, and sent them to his vineyard. Going out at about the third hour, he saw others standing idle in the marketplace and said to them, you go to my vineyard too, and I will give you a fair wage. So they went. At about the sixth hour, and again at about the ninth hour, he went out and did the same. Then at about the 11th hour, he went out and found more men standing around, and he said to them, why have you been standing here idle all day? Because no one has hired us, they answered. He said to them, you go into my vineyard too. In the evening, the owner of the vineyard said to his bailiff, call the workers and pay them their wages, starting with the last arrivals and ending with the first. So those who were hired at about the 11th hour came forward and received one denarius each. When the first came, they expected to get more, but they too received one denarius each. They took it, but grumbled at the landowner. The men who came last, they said, have done only one hour, and you have treated them to the same as us, though we have done a heavy day's work in all the heat. He answered one of them and said, my friend, I am not being unjust to you. Did we not agree on one denarius? Take your earnings and go. I choose to pay the last comer as much as I pay you. Have I no right to do what I like with my own? Why be envious because I am generous? Thus the last will be first and the first last. What word made this passage come alive for you? What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, give the Lord an opportunity to speak to you. Jesus said to his disciples, the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner going out at daybreak to hire workers for his vineyard.

What did you sense the Lord saying to you? Once more, through him, with him, and in him, listen to the word. Jesus said to his disciples, the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner going out at daybreak to hire workers for his vineyard.

And if you're interested in that, just simply go to Harriscertifiedcoach .com and I'm also going to leave a link in the show description of today's podcast below. So just as always, scroll down and you're going to be able to click over and then fill out the form. You've got to fill out the form. And so we are starting with an understanding of what hair certified coach is all about. It's not going to be something for all of you because it is something we take extremely seriously because in a lot of ways, when you have learned to become a hair certified coach, you're then going to be set out into the wilds to coach people using our material. But we're also going to again show you how to generate real estate coaching leads. You can start your own coaching business. Some of you are at a perfect point in your careers where this would be a great, I think, addition to your income, if not a whole new career path. So if this is for you, if you're curious, just go to Harriscertifiedcoach .com or like I said, scroll down in the link below. We'll take you over to the main page. Please do read the FAQs and then fill out the form. And then that form is personally reviewed by Julie and I. So in today's show, we are going to be focused on your real estate daily success schedule. This is, I have to say, it's a topic you and I talk about directly and indirectly all the time because at the end of the day, your life is rooted in a schedule. A lot of people, myself included, hate having a schedule. You as well. Sure. Nobody likes it. Everybody does. But the thing is, even if you don't have a schedule, a formalized schedule, you have a schedule. You just may not be acknowledging it. You just may not be acknowledging it because your life is basically being run around certain milestones throughout the day. So given the fact that you have a schedule, despite the fact you don't necessarily want one if you're a butthead like Julie and I, well then look at the facts. Why not make a schedule that's going to be conducive to the betterment of your long -term physical, financial, spiritual, educational wants, needs, and desires. At the end of the day, guys, you can accomplish everything you want to accomplish, and this is the best part, I think, and you're about to learn more why this is true, in less than three hours a day, usually first thing in the morning. So Julie, without any further delay. That's right. So there's not nine million things you have to do with your schedule, but there are some key things that you've got to adopt and adapt and turn into your daily minimum standards that you do as habits. And again, I love what you just said, because really at the end of the day, if you've accomplished three to five things, and we're going to really drill down on what those probably should be and you can adjust accordingly, if you do three to five things at a high level every single day, even if you don't get a real obvious listing contract or closing or something like that, that particular day, you're building positive momentum, which is going to result in really great things, maybe 30, 60, 90 days down the road. Indeed it will. All right. So what should you have in your ideal schedule? Number one, use and update your visual accountability whiteboards every day. You should be tracking all of the following based on your goals. These are on your wall. These are whiteboards with pens. You guys can visualize that. Harris, those of you in Premier Coaching, there are lots of examples of Premier Coaching. And again, when you join Premier Coaching, in the first level of Premier Coaching, which you have free access to listeners, and again, the link is in the show description, you also receive the Real Estate Treasure Map. The Real Estate Treasure Map is your fill in the line business and life plan. It is the first thing that we want all new coaching clients to complete. And a lot of this information is actually covered in the Real Estate Treasure Map. So if you want to know what Julie means by what your board should look like, it's in the Real Estate Treasure Map, join Premier Coaching, and actually I relabeled it in the first level. It actually says business planning Real Estate Treasure Map. There you go. So it's easy to find. No excuses. And by the way, all my elite, my one -on -one coaching clients, and I think yours as well, send, they will text us pictures of their whiteboards, their visual accountability prior to a coaching call, and that's some additional accountability, isn't it? When our private numbers page on Facebook, they will oftentimes, yeah, well, it's because if your real estate magic number, and we're talking Harris Coaching speak now, but bear with us. If your real estate magic number is 10, you need 10 listings at all times, and you've been able to hit the number 10 for the first time in your career. You're proud of that. Hell yeah, you are. You're posting it everywhere. Exactly. Yes, and you're getting a lot of love and support from the Harris certified coaches and your colleagues that are working on the same things as you. So what do you track with your visual accountability whiteboards? Leads, active listings, buyers, pending closings, and closed transactions. So for example, if your business plan, your real estate treasure map calls for you to do 22 transactions this year, on your closed transaction board, you're going to have one through 22, and you're going to fill them in. They travel through your boards. Everything starts as a lead. Then it's either a buyer or an active listing. Then it becomes a pending, and then it lands on your closed transaction board. You literally can visually see, are you on track ahead or behind? Think about this from an emotional perspective, finances are intertwined with emotions. If your goal is to earn, I'll just pick a very simple number, all of you should be able to wrap your arms around this, $100 ,000. Let's say your average commission is $10 ,000. This should be obvious that you have to sell 10 houses. For you to sell 10 houses, how many leads do you need? That's the whole process. How many contacts are you going to be needing to make per day? I'll give you the answer, 10. If you make 10 contacts per day, if you have 10 listings at all times, you will sell at least, you will get and sell at least 10 listings or 10 houses per year. Probably it'll be split between buyers and sellers. That is the very least amount of transactions and money you guys should be making in this market or any market, frankly. It does work like clockwork like that. That's the point of the treasure map is to show you that. Then number two, what are we doing on your daily schedule? Look at your finances every day. Yes, look at your finances every day. Use mint .com as your dashboard of key performance indicators or KPIs, your savings, your checking, your credit cards, investment accounts, investment properties, and everything else financial are visible using mint .com. This includes your credit scores as well as your upcoming bills and your actual budget. Mint .com is not an official sponsor. It sounds like a mint commercial, but that's because we like them so much and we use them personally. It's actually really easy to set up. It's mint .com, M -I -N -T. We did this yesterday. We always have run all of our business expenses and our personal expenses through an American Express card for a whole bunch of reasons, but Julie found yesterday, she sent me a summary of there was 11 charges on our Amex for our business card that she didn't recognize. Sure enough, there were some just rando charges that just popped up that worked from things we canceled over a year ago. Those merchants were hoping that we were asleep at the wheel and wouldn't contest the charge which we did, so you're going to have to pay attention to all that stuff and really be watching out for it. Unfortunately that happens. Sometimes it's a clerical error on their end, but nonetheless, make sure you're paying attention to your money. The other thing that happens is a lot of people have a direct negative visceral reaction when they're thinking about money. Even frankly, Julie's voice goes up when she talks about money, so if we start talking about money, you guys will hear it in her voice. It's kind of funny. It's a subconscious thing that gives her a little bit of anxiety. understand. I completely Most people feel that way, but if you increase their frequency of checking in on your money, so it's not like every time you log into your checking account, it's like seeing a ghost. If you're going there frequently and you're familiarizing yourself with the patterns of how your finances work and you become more comfortable with it, then it's not obviously going to have that same emotional reaction because you will have jumped in the deep end. These money things, guys, are very easy to move past.
Setting Realistic Expectations For Your Dog Training Lessons
"So today we are going to be talking about lessons. So someone's needing a lesson or wanting to get a lesson with the dog trainer, or perhaps it's a board and train and they're going in for their first lesson. And what are expectations that dog owners should have of what they're going to get out of, what they're going to learn, what they're going to have to do in a lesson, a one -on -one lesson with the trainer? Let's go over what our lessons look like. Okay. So ours are what, about half an hour long, 45 minutes long, and it's very much, I'm going to show you with your dog, I'm going to show you with the dog, then you're going to do it in front of me, and we're going to really make sure we're all doing it correctly. We're going to tell you, then show you, and then watch you do it. And we do our - And then a tweet can help you. Yeah. Yeah. If you're struggling or anything like that. I know board and trains are a little different. They go home every Friday. So if you have a three -week board and train, you have a half hour, 45 -minute lesson every Friday. Every Friday. Yeah. And then - That's really a big difference because a lot of board and trains, they'll do a, they call it a go home or a send home lesson in their two, three hours because it's the only lesson quite often that person is going to get with their trainer. So the expectation, if I was the owner, going to that type of lesson would be overwhelmed. That would be my expectation because really who goes to a class for three hours without a break? I mean, you go to a seminar or workshop in about an hour and 15 hours and 30 minutes, they're taking a potty break for everybody because everyone's mentally checked out. Even if you paid to be there, you're mentally checking out. It's like death by PowerPoint. It's just too much information. And then you expect your dog to perform for two hours - Or three. If that dog is possible. Yeah. That's not possible. No matter what kind of dog you got. They can check out. Dog trainers themselves will check out. Yeah. And they, to be a dog trainer, you have to have some flavor of idioms. Because that really lesson, you know, that two, three hour lesson, they're still doing the same thing. Hopefully a good trainer is going to tell you what you're about to do, show you how to do it, hand you the leash and have you deal with your dog. Man, that's just, oh Lord, that's all time consuming. But why do we do that? Why do we do, why do we tell, show and deal? Retention. Retention. The hardest part about this entire industry is training humans. Dogs - Yeah. It's not for the dog. Not for the dog. The dog knows how to do everything. It's supposed to. Know how to do everything - That, you know, we're doing in the lesson - Yeah. With our client. Now it's to get the client up speed, but it's also a transfer of leadership over to that client. Yeah. Now we're showing the dog, yeah, mom and dad know how to do this too. You can't go home and look at them like they got a third eyeball growing out of their forehead because they said sit to you. Yeah. Because dogs will associate. That's how they learn. Just like humans. They'll associate all these new commands and skills they've learned here with us. So that lesson helps them, oh, I got to do this with my family too. Yeah. But it also makes it easier on humans too because it's never a question, does my dog know how to heal? Right. No, they can do it. They can do it very well and they can do it for you. Clearly we did it for you. Yeah. Now if there's a disconnect at home, it's probably a house problem. Yeah. Or handling the leech problem usually.

A highlight from New All Time High Coming? (Polkadot Price Prediction)
"Hey what's up everyone, my name is AJ writes crypto and this is the price prediction department. Every week in the comments, there are about 5 -10 people out there asking for a Polkadot price prediction. This one is for you, let's dive in and discover crypto. I'm going to start off by saying that Polkadot is a deep, deep dive. While some projects are relatively cut and dry, DOT is as complicated as it gets. If you really want to jump into the Polkadot rabbit hole, just a heads up, it's going to take weeks for you to get a well -rounded understanding of its complexities. I will link it down below in the description, but I have read the Polkadot whitepaper on two separate occasions now, and when you start seeing science class diagrams like this one here, understand that to do a full -fledged coin review on Polkadot would take at least three hours minimum. With that said, I'm going to give a brief overview and stick with the price prediction. Here is a quick explanation of Polkadot directly from that whitepaper. Polkadot provides the bedrock relay chain upon which a large number of validatable, globally coherent, dynamic data structures may be hosted side by side. We call these data structures parallelized, or parachains, though there is no specific need for them to be blockchained in nature. Understand that Polkadot's main focus is interoperability, or communication between blockchains who otherwise wouldn't be able to communicate. With that network of parachains and the XCM, or the cross -consensus message format, Polkadot has grown an ecosystem of over 600 projects who have the ability to communicate with each other. Another thing I really like about Polkadot is how they utilize their side canary chain Kusama. Kusama acts as a live testnet for Polkadot that is pretty much used as their science experiment to see what will and what won't work on the main chain. Without getting too far into the weeds, I want to point out that I know some people who are really big on Polkadot, and I also know some people who are completely against it. For those people who are completely against it, the complaints I've heard are either about Gavin Wood's personal life, which I will not get into, and I've also heard that the parachains were somewhat of a flop. When they started the original 41 parachain auctions back in November of 21, there were some projects that came out swinging, like Acala, Moonbeam, Astar, Clover Finance, but as the parachain auctions continued into 2022, there were less and less funds raised and less contributors to the projects as we ventured further into the bear market. I remember it used to be a really big deal when a project landed a parachain spot, but unfortunately as time went on, the more and more projects that landed them, the less and less it mattered. To be fair, the timing of the bear market really, really hurt their cause. But on the bright side, according to key insights from the Masari State of Polkadot Q2 update, OpenGov, their new decentralized governance model, launched back in June. This is significant because since Polkadot is a proof of stake blockchain, improving their governance is a big step forward for decentralization. Also, like I mentioned before, V3 of XCM recently launched, which is their cross consensus messaging format. This is basically like the key to the door of interoperability. The most bullish observation for Polkadot is earlier this year when the SEC was going hard in the pain against Binance and Coinbase, Polkadot was a lucky project that was not flagged by the SEC as the security. I mean, Gary Gensler has called every project under the sun a security, but not Polkadot. Let's give him a call and find out why. What's his number again? Oh yeah, six, six, six. Okay. Gary, how you doing, man? Yeah, I know that hearing was pretty rough, but hey, quick question. Why is Polkadot not a security? Wait, they paid you how much? And once again, he hung up on me. I will link that Masari update down below in the description. It is an excellent tool for those needs to know facts. I use Masari every day to keep track of all my favorite coins. Shout out to Ryan Selkis and Masari, not a paid advertisement. With all that said, let's get into the price prediction. Remember, the equation for price predictions is price equals market cap divided by circulating supply. Polkadot put in its all -time high of $55 on November 4th, 2021. At the time, its market cap was $56 .5 billion and its supply was north of $987 million. Today, DOT is 92 % down from its all -time high and it sets just over $4. Its market cap currently sits around $5 .15 billion and its supply is a little over $1 .27 billion, a 29 % increase from its previous all -time high. For perspective, if DOT put in its all -time high market cap with today's supply, that $55 Polkadot would now be a $44 Polkadot. As you can see, when the supply goes up, the market cap has so much extra work to do. The problem with this, though, is that DOT is inherently inflationary and it increases about 10 % every year. With that said, according to this chart here from TokenDOTUnlocks, its supply is projected to be $1 .688 billion by November of 2025, which is the projected top of the next bull run based off the Bitcoin halving cycle. For even more perspective, if we ran that supply against the previous all -time high market cap, that $55 DOT becomes a $33 .5 DOT. So for Polkadot to reach its previous all -time high with this new heightened supply, it would require a $92 .8 billion market cap, which is 64 % higher than its previous all -time high market cap. In other words, like I said, Polkadot has a lot of work to do. But to be fair, 46 % of the total supply was staked at the end of Q2 this year. So there is obviously a dedicated community and Polkadot has more active developers than any project in crypto. So my question is, what can that really do for the market cap? Of course, you probably know that I really like to use dominance as a gauge to see what's possible. For those of you that don't know, at the top of the last bull run, the total crypto market cap sat right around $3 trillion. When I use dominance for a gauge, it piggybacks off the idea that the total crypto market cap for the top of the next bull run is likely to range somewhere between $7 to $10 trillion. That is just an estimation. As you can see here, DOT has a relative support resistance line on its dominance chart at 0 .93%. The idea here is that if the total crypto market cap went to $7 to $10 trillion and Polkadot could get that 0 .93%, just less than one full percent, this would give us a range for its market cap. So when we pair that dominance level with the $7 trillion total cap, that would lead to a $65 .1 billion market cap for Polkadot. When you pair that with the new heightened supply, you're looking at about a $38 .70 DOT. If you pair the same dominance level against the $10 trillion total market cap, that would be a $93 billion market cap for Polkadot. When you pair that with the new heightened supply, ironically, we would have a $55 .09 Polkadot, which is only a few pennies higher than its previous all -time high. It is pretty funny how those numbers lined up like that, but I do want to point out that dominance is a guideline and it's not a law. I do like to use it as a tool to get an idea of the range to see what's possible, but to be honest, I do not think DOT is going to be able to put up a $93 billion market cap. So to be honest with you, this is one of those coins in my book that will not surpass its previous all -time high. Personally, for my price prediction, I see DOT probably landing somewhere between $25 to $37, where $37 is an 8 .4x and would require a $62 .5 billion market cap. Boom, there you go. There's my price prediction for Polkadot. Let me know down below in the comments what you thought. Am I too bearish? Am I too bullish? Let me know what you think. Also, I have the next two videos planned out, but after that, I want to know down below in the comments what coins you want to see me cover. I do read the comments, I do hear what you're saying, and I want to cover what you want to learn about. With all that being said, my name is A .J. Rights Crypto. Have yourself a great day.
A highlight from BIG CRYPTO NEWS!! CITI BANK TOKEN & JUDGE DENIES SEC GARY GENSLER IN BINANCE US CASE!!
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto Podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. If you are new here, please hit that subscribe button as well as the thumbs up button and leave a comment below. If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google or wherever you get your podcasts, make sure you hit that five star rating and review. It helps support the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything. Well folks, we've got big news coming out of Citigroup today. They have officially launched a token that will be used for deposits and the transference of money. Let me give you the details. Citigroup launches deposit city token services for institutional customers. This product will be based on a private blockchain controlled by the bank, converting customer deposit into digital tokens that can be sent instantly. Customers do not need to set up their own digital wallets and can be accessed through the bank's existing systems. This was reported by Bloomberg. This is huge news. There's many layers to this story. First it is further validation of this asset class and technology. And this technology is disruptive folks. And disruption is at the doorsteps of the banks, whether it be Citigroup, JP Morgan and many more. And they are trying to build their own versions, right? If the old system is working so perfectly, why are they trying to build blockchains and use blockchains and build tokens? Why? They know this new technology, this new asset class is the future. This technology is here to stay. It has many benefits. It will leave the old system in the dust. Folks, disruption is happening. Another major move here by a bank. And it's once again, further validation with technology. The other layer is that just about a week ago, reported on September 7th, JP Morgan was reported that they were building a deposit token themselves for settlements. JP Morgan is reportedly developing the infrastructure to run a new deposit token, allowing settlements between banks for corporate clients. Pretty clear what's happening here, folks. They know, especially with the likes of Ripple winning the lawsuit and XRP getting the clarity and not to mention CBDCs and stable coins and PayPal building their stable coins. This technology is here to stay and it's moving at a rapid pace. And look, I've been on record saying that I believe the TradFi incumbents, such as Citi, such as JP Morgan, Goldman, and these guys, weaponized Gary Gensler and the SEC to go and try to kill the stable coins, kill Ripple, kill whatever payment or crypto startup, right? Because Gary Gensler and the SEC are controlled by these TradFi incumbents. I had Caitlin Long on the podcast talking about the bias towards the TradFi incumbents, right? And we know how the political system works with campaign donations and much more. So it's pretty clear what's happening here. If you sit back and you look at the timeline, you look at the parallel of these things that are actually happening, right? We're not saying that we're not fabricating something here. It's clear what's been happening. It's clear what Jamie Dimon was saying since 2017 and what his bank was actually doing, right? Watch what they do, not what they say. Folks, first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, and then you win. It's pretty clear that this tech is so disruptive. They're scared of it and they're trying to build their own versions. But the problem is these wall gardens that they're building on private blockchains, no one's going to trust it. Why would another bank want to trust your token that you control the blockchain, you control the nodes, and much more? There are going to be private blockchain systems, don't get me wrong, right? Citi may launch its token and within its own different branches move money and settle instantly, but don't expect JP Morgan to use their coin and vice versa. So this is what's happening. They're not going to be able to disrupt the market with cross -border payments and all the different blockchain systems that are out there, which provide more of a free market, trustless permissionless setup. So very bullish folks for the crypto asset class that these banks are so scared. They're trying to launch their own tokens. And once again, JP Morgan is trying to do the same thing. And as mentioned, this is being reported by Bloomberg and they're calling it Citi Token Services once again. Let me give you a quote here from Shamir Khalik, global head of the company's services division. The development of Citi Token Services is part of our journey to deliver real time, always on next generation transaction banking services to our institutional clients. Oh, but I thought the traditional way of doing things was working. I thought crypto and blockchain, all these things are scams and a Ponzi. I guess not. The move is the latest by an established banking giant to offer so -called tokenized deposits or transferable digital coins that can represent a claim against banks. Crucially though, these tokens are processed on blockchain reels, meaning settlement is instantaneous. Yep. Folks, I'm so glad I'm here early. I'm paying attention. I'm researching, I'm dollar cost averaging and I'm hodling. Now a great way to dollar cost average in is using Uphold, which is a great crypto exchange. They are one of the sponsors of this podcast. I've been using Uphold since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus crypto currencies, and they're available in 150 countries. You can also trade precious metals and 37 national currencies where you can easily transfer between crypto to different Fiat currencies to precious metals. That's a pretty unique feature to Uphold. If you'd like to learn more about this platform, please visit the link in the description. Well, folks, we've got big news around the SEC versus Binance. The judge declined the SEC's request to inspect Binance US. So if you recall, there was news that the SEC rips into Binance US over a shaky asset custody asked court to order inspection. The regulator asked a US court to reject Binance's half -hearted objections to its motion seeking depositions and inspection and communication from the exchange. This is another big fat L for scumbag regulator Gary Gensler, and this is being reported by Bloomberg. Here's the headline. SEC fails to win immediate inspection of Binance US software. Regulator says it is not getting enough access in lawsuit. Magistrate judge didn't grant expedited discovery requests. So the SEC says it has been struggling to get information from Binance US since it sued the American exchange along with its international affiliate Binance Holdings Ltd and its chief executive officer Changping Zhao in June. So Gary is taking loss after loss after loss. And I think a big blow is coming with Coinbase. I think Coinbase has a strong case and just like the grayscale situation, a lot of legal analysts are saying, yeah, we think Coinbase is going to walk away with a victory. Now, it may not be a full victory, kind of like the ripple situation where the SEC did win on some grounds, but it will be the lion's share of the win, or if you were to count up the numbers here, and that is what we're looking for. And you may say, well, Tony, why are you bashing the SEC and Gary Gensler so much? Don't they have a job to do? You're absolutely right. They do have a job to do, but we know, and this has been confirmed by the crypto industry as well as members of Congress and other regulators, even SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda, the SEC and Gary Gensler have not been acting in good faith. They have not been abiding by the law. So this government agency, which is supposed to have integrity, which is opposed to abide by the law, are themselves not doing that. Well, you have Judge Sarah Netburn rip a lawsuit saying the SEC lacks faithful allegiance to the law. What a burn. What a statement, right? That a government agency is being called out by the judicial branch and you lack faithful allegiance to the law. And even Bill Hinman and his conflicts of interest with Ethereum. And the list goes on and on and on. Gary Gensler is a puppet on strings doing the bidding of the incumbents when he's supposed to be a neutral party just looking to protect investors and they are attacking good actors. So it's not like they are just going after bad actors and that's the end of it. They're attacking good actors. And it goes back to what we were talking about at the beginning of the podcast. Citibank and all these banking incumbents have weaponized Gary Gensler to kill the startups that are disrupting them. The other aspect is Gary Gensler is not working with Congress to provide clear regulations, right? And he's flip flopped over the years. He's a big hypocrite. He's a liar. We've seen him lie many times. And he continues to say there's hucksters and scammers and so on and so forth in the industry. I tweeted about it today. You have some of the biggest names entering the crypto market, such as BlackRock, Franklin Templeton and many others filing for Bitcoin spot ETFs. Earlier this year, Charles Schwab, Fidelity and Citadel launched a crypto exchange called ADX Markets. PayPal launched a stablecoin. Deutsche Bank just reported last week they will offer crypto custody. Mastercard launched a CBDC program. Visa expanded their use of USDC stablecoin on Solana. So Gary clearly tried to distract and attack the startups while his Wall Street TradFi buddies come in and take over and look at the facts, right? I just listed out a whole bunch of big names that are coming in. And remember, Gary met with Sam Beckman Fried and FTX officials, didn't do anything. Big collapse happened there. He didn't do anything about Celsius or three hours capital and a whole bunch of other things. He didn't stop Terra Luna or anything like that, right? He just sat back and waited. And I think that was part of his strategy. I think he knew of the things that are happening, but he let them collapse so that they would hurt the market, right? Let the flush out all these startups who look, they're not established like the banking incumbents. And then what happened this year? Oh, I'm going to go after the good actors. I'm going to go after Coinbase, right? I'm going to go after this company and that company and NFTs and many other projects. So it's pretty ridiculous what's happening. But guys, we will win the war. We've seen historically that the disruptive technology will progress. It will get adoption. And if these folks don't get on board and it looks like they're trying to with their tokens, they will get or have their blockbuster moment. Now, speaking of further adoption, blockchain capital raises $580 million for two new funds. Venture capital's firms, record funding comes as space is teeming with exceptional innovators, despite bear market execs says. So the capital keeps coming in investments into the crypto industry. These companies and these funds are investing in both the companies, building the infrastructure, as well as the tokens are very, very bullish. Despite all that happened last year with FTX and Celsius and so forth, there's looking beyond that. They're looking at the future and the horizon of the adoption of this technology and much more. So one is the San Francisco based companies, six early stage fund in line with such funds it has previously launched, while the other is its first so -called opportunity fund. The $580 million marks the company's largest raise in its 10 year history, according to blockchain capital executives, Spencer Bogart, Bart Stevens, and Jason de Piazza. Such funding coming during a bear market reflects our investors trust in our long -term perspective, they said in a Monday blog post, adding that innovation often thrives during tough economic times. Despite the downturn in liquidity prices, we see a space that is teeming with exceptional innovators and founders, each aligned with the first principles of open source innovation, credible neutrality, and censorship resistance, Stevens told block works. The firm's first opportunity fund was conceived as a post dislocation investment vehicle. According to blockchain capital, Bart Stevens, it was designed with a high conviction concentrated mandate to pursue financing opportunities at the later stage. Very bullish news here, my friends. And here we got some more quotes. We felt generalists and newcomers misjudged the opportunity set he added. In contrast today, the fundraising environment for late stage crypto companies is barren, creating a unique and compelling opportunity for targeted capital that understand web three technology. Pretty incredible folks. And this is a lot of capital and more is going to keep coming, right? We're just seeing some of the biggest trad fi names entering a lot of capital being raised by different funds and new funds popping up and they're going to invest in the market and we're going to see continued growth and the S curve adoption keeps moving higher and growing folks. It's happening day by day, week by week, month by month, year by year. Now we got news here in New York financial watchdog proposes strengthened crypto guidelines. The New York financial or the New York department of financial services published proposed guidelines on Monday aimed to strengthen how firms list or delist coins. It also proposed guidance on adding coins to the state's green list. So we're seeing states move in the direction of trying to figure out regulations while the federal government continues to drag their feet. Obviously we got two bills in the house and shout out to patch McHenry and those folks who have been trying to get things through. Even Senator Cynthia Lummis and Christian Gillibrand in the Senate also have a bill, but we need Congress to act, right? Things are moving really slow. They need to put the guardrails in place, but we're going to see a lot of states do this. And I think as they do this and with their grassroots movements and much more, it's going to put pressure on the federal government to eventually act. So I think this is a good thing. However, the devil's in the details. New York can sometimes be very heavy handed. They obviously have the ridiculous bit license, which they should get rid of. But I think that's Wall Street's gatekeeping to allow only companies that they want and much more. So it's tough for a lot of crypto companies to get that bit license in New York. So we shall see what they come up with, but let me give you some details. Since joining DFS, I have made it a priority to ensure the department's regulatory and operational capabilities keep pace with the industry developments to protect consumers and markets. And why DFS Superintendent Adrian Harris said in a statement on Monday, and why DFS has been active in regulating crypto in the state for years, having launched its bit license regime in 2015. A slew of firms have virtual currency licenses in the state, including Coinbase Incorporated, and according to its site, although some firms close up shop in the state. So let's see what they come up with and all the details as it comes out, and we'll have some of the legal experts review it. But I am for regulations. I think they're important. Now, I don't believe in draconian regulations. I believe there's a balance. You allow innovation to flourish, but you protect consumers. That's the balance. But we got to keep our guard up and push back on anything that's draconian. Finally, Malta, they seek to change their crypto rule book to get ready for MICA. So the EU MICA regulatory framework was passed. The EU and the UK are ahead of the United States right now. The country's financial watchdog wants to align its framework with the EU wide rules set to take effect in 2024. So once again, EU and UK ahead, and it looks like these countries and the European Union are going to look to align to this. So this absolutely makes sense. Now, this law and this regulation is not perfect, right? And there's still some fine tuning that's needed, but it's a really great start. And I'm glad they were able to get things through because it just once again shows crypto is not dependent on the United States. This in technology the digital world that we live in and everybody on the internet, it doesn't need the United States land and borders to operate. It can operate from anywhere. Now, obviously I say that, but the United States is the world's largest capital market. So matter of capital raising and funding and so forth, that is certainly a big factor for the United States, but for these projects to launch and to build and to grow, they don't need the United States. And living in the United States, I'm worried that the US is in danger of losing some of these companies and a lot of jobs and economic benefits, but hopefully they can get it right sooner than later. And this EU MICA bill will take effect in 2024. And I think we can expect to see other countries align with it. And that is really great because there's not going to be different rules for different countries, at least in the EU, they can online and provide clarity to the different businesses operating in the EU. So this is good news, I think all around. Well, folks, that's the news.

"And welcome to the third hour of our program here on Anything Goes Weekend. Monday, Reminder next this up, you know, three days from now or Monday, July 24th, depending when you're hearing this, I will be at Powell's City of Books, the main Powell's in downtown Portland reading and talking about my new book, The Hidden History of American Democracy and autographing therapy square. A couple of things to talk about here under the Texas abortion ban. More babies are dying and mothers are being forced to watch their babies die. Some of these women who were testifying in this lawsuit against the to state Texas earlier this week. It's just heartbreaking stuff. Agence France press writes, a scan revealed that Samantha Cassiano's unborn child had serious is health effects and would not survive outside the womb for more than a few hours. But with abortion now banned in Texas, she was forced to carry the child to term and then watch as her partner held their daughter in his arms as she died. She went from being warm to cold. Cassiano, who is campaigning for a change in law, told it was horrible because I wanted my daughter to rest in peace sooner rather than later, and we had to wait until she was born. They are suing, saying that the anti -abortion law in Texas is preventing women from getting the healthcare that they need. These were women who wanted to have children, but who had crisis pregnancies. In her case, it was a child that was born without a skull. Part of the brain and part of the skull were missing. Anencephaly, it's called. And was she told the baby would die as soon as it was born. She said, I hope the law changes so other women don't have to go through what I went through, and other fathers don't have to see their child die in their hands. Her partner, Luis Vilciano, 25, said that the couple could have faced jail if they were caught leaving the state to seek an abortion, adding that they didn't have enough money to travel and had to care for their other four children. He said it's against the to law get an abortion, and then who's going to take care of the kids we already have? It was just too much. We're trying to go to do the right thing. My baby actually died in my arms. I held it the whole four hours. There's another case here. Amanda Zorowski, the lead plaintiff, gave a heroin testimony. I believe she was the one who, in the middle of her testimony, she threw up, just remembering the trauma that Texas forced this woman to go through was so traumatic that just recounting it caused her to vomit. They had to recess the hearings for a little bit while they cleaned it all up and everything. She said, when I needed emergency adoption care while pregnant with my daughter Willow, I was forced to go home and wait. I nearly died because of the state of Texas's inhumane abortion bans. Another plaintiff, Laura Miller, said Samantha's daughter was gasping for air. Who could condemn that to anyone, much less a baby? This is just monstrous. Not be torturing babies and the consequences of our actions. Meanwhile, climate change,

And technology is certainly one of them. So you like technology? We do like technology. You don't think it's overvalued here? Well, it could be overvalued here, but software is changing the world, right? Mark andreessen's article, several years ago, software is eating the world. Still true. AI is just another accelerating story on that. We can't go three hours in this show without mentioning AI. No. Have personally thought of so many new business cases that I might leave and become entrepreneurial, multimillionaire, because I think it could be used in so many different ways. I mean, I'm not alone there. Yeah, right. But I also think just blockchain. I mean, blockchain may revolutionize software development as well. So software is going to continue to be change our lives. And we fortunately are the country that leads that. So we do like that. We like lots of things, but that's one of the areas we like. What about the banks? You know, I saw a great quote in a Bloomberg story overnight. Ben gerlinger from the hub to group wrote, the shares in western alliance offer a rare, once in an economic cycle entry point into a best of breed banking franchise. I'm not asking you specifically to common in western alliance, but if these banks are safe and it really is just a short seller's attack, isn't it a great time to buy them?

It's hard to find someone more despicable, whether it's Don Junior or Tucker Carlson, who literally said, uh, he declared the transgender people are the natural enemy of Christianity because they claim dominion over nature. Oh, well, good. That's a good time to promote more violence toward trans people now, because he said the trans movement is the mirror image of Christianity and therefore it's natural enemy.

"For three hours on your well fed host Neil Saavedra. How do you do? You know it's grilling season. And I love talking about grilling and some of the best things to grill, of course. Our beloved burger. Maybe we'll get to hot dogs as well. Couple little tricks with hot dogs that a lot of people Have never experienced or thought about. But right now, burgers when you've got that 80 20 Beef, and that means 80% lean, 20% fat. That's where you want to land anything less than that fat and lean ratio. Just you're going to get a dryer burger, and there's no reason to have a dry burger. Ever. Ever standard. Uh, backyard burgers are probably about six ounces, so £1.5 of meat yields for burgers. That's how you kind of guesstimate as to what you're going to have. Thicker style Patties. Make sure you don't pack them too much. You can wet your hands with cold water. When you make them you can use gloves. You can do whatever the reason why, When you're making Patties with your hands, you get all that fat on your hands is because the heat Of your hand is pulling that fat out. So now you've got the proper 80 20 ratio. But as you make the Patties you're actually taking That fat out as a matter of fact, if you ever grind your own Meet, doing your own ground beef at home. You want to make sure everything's chilled all of your cuts of meat, or in about a one by one square. Everything's chilled. When I know I'm going to do that. I even keep the apparatus itself chilled the grinder. I keep it chilled. Everything is in the refrigerator. If you if you don't have time to do that, with the beef, you can cut it into one by one and then put it into the freezer for about 15 20 minutes, firm it up that way The fats not pulled off and one it ends up binding your grinder. But also you end up pulling out that fat and you want that fat? Saying, When you're packing the Patties with your hand, don't pack them too tight. Then they won't be tender. They won't pull apart Part. There's a sweet spot too loose and they're going to pull apart when you're grilling or things like that too packed and they're going to be dense and kind of flavorless there. It's just not as good As far as seasoning goes. Make sure you season right before You put them on that is your salt and pepper. Or like Lowry's. I think Lowry's is an excellent seasoning for burger Patties and oft used quite honestly by restaurants. That's that's it. If you're into those other style, where you're mixing all kinds of things and to the ground beef God bless you. But that's a meatloaf sandwich to me. That is not a burger to me, and I hear a lot of people. Oh, this is how I do, And that's great if that's your family style, and that's your jam, and that's what everybody loved. Knock yourself out. But to me, I'm a purist. I want to Taste the beef. And I want to have that really meaty experience. So when you start putting all onions and all these crazy things in there, it gets a little out of control. Now there is for my taste. There is something called a juicy Lucy, another style of Burger Patty. And they make a little contraption where you can put the ground beef in there. It makes a little pocket or hole if you will, where you can place cheese on the inside and sometimes other fillings. You smashed the ends of the Burger Patty together like a proposal or something, and then you grill it off. These are called juicy Lucy. Because, of course, when you bite in or cut them, everything goes right out of the center. Can be very delicious. One done right? But other than that salt and pepper really is going to bring out the flavor. You don't want to mix it in with the meat. Because the salt is going to react with the protein. And you're going to end up getting it, making it tougher, especially if you do it earlier. So you want to season the Patties right before oftentimes I throw a patty on unseasoned season the top side that's not on the grill. Flip it over, then season, the other. I have no problem with doing that. Either. But keep that stuff in mind if you want to make a thinner style. So a thin style. This is not a smash patty that you're doing on the griddle. But one that you want to be thin, More like a fast food style. I'm going to give this tip to you with with the caveat. I often will use or did back in the day. Two plates. To dinner plates. I would turn one upside down. Put that on the counter. I'd put wax paper or parchment paper on there. Put the ball of beef, and it would be for me. It's three ounces is what I would normally use for something like this. Then I put another piece of parchment or wax paper. On top of that. Take another plate. Bottom side down and push it. Until it made because often you have a little round rim on the bottom of the plate, and it makes just this area where it can smash the patty nicely. The caveat is I've broken a plate. Before. So be careful, especially with older plates. I tend to in the home here we have melamine for the backyard or for fun times in on the front porch, something like that. But normally I have the stoneware that you find at a restaurant supply store. This is the plain white stuff. That you have in most restaurants. Because food looks great against that contrast of the white. That's why you'll see really bright food. Light colors and things like that usually served on darker plates and traditional most dark steaks and things like that veggies look great against the white. Background right? So those are super hearty and they're inexpensive and I don't care if they break, But if you have older plates, be careful what I use. Now is my tortilla press it is. Made out of steel. You can find them with aluminum. Just keep in mind. You're going to ask a lot of it when you press down on it, and you have to spin. Quarter turn each time you press down, otherwise it will press towards one end that makes a nice flat patty and oftentimes some people will roll their eyes at this. I take those I put them between parchment. I put them in the freezer and freeze them. Then when I want a thin, patty, I can char broil it too. I can throw it right over the grill. Even a thin patty, which are usually harder to do that way. You want to do them on a flat top. I can put them right over the fire. They cook very quickly and simply, I can cook them from prison. That's something that I love doing. When you get into the traditional smash, Patty, you're making a ball of you know, between four and six ounce ball of your ground beef. You're putting that directly on To your griddle, your piping hot griddle, and then you press it down with a an offset Big spatula that you usually see, you know, Benny Hana's or at a When you're when you're looking into the back, and they're they're cooking pancakes or what have you oftentimes they have these big offset spatulas and what I end up using is I have a scraper that I cleaned my flat top with And I used that It's like a putty knife. And I pushed that over the spatula and pressed down because it gives me extra. The spatula will have some give to it unless you have that other thing, And then you get these nice, so great Patties that smash patty style. When we come back, I'll tell you about the infamous bump that comes on the handmade Patties that you get the end up looking like a football how to cure that, and I'll give you that tipped for great hot dogs we return. It is technique of the week on the fork report. I'm Neil Saavedra. Let's get the latest news in the K F i news..

And Gulliver is joining me, Ben. Good to have you back. How are you? I'm doing great, Jim. Coming in. Hot off that Clippers Mavericks came last night at Staples Center. I'm sure you saw the Luca don changed it to the poor clippers. Absolutely. This is exactly where I want to start. In fact, then why don't we go back? Few days? You were at staples for game one of that, Syriza. What did you make of what you saw from Dallas in that game. And more importantly, what did you make of what you saw from the Clippers. Well, here's the thing with Luca to me. He's one of the top three showman in the NBA. Right now. It's LeBron Steph and Luca there in a category by themselves because Luca walks into Staples Center as the underdog team, quote unquote against the title contender, quote unquote in the Clippers, and this guy's acting like a small town mayor. He's kissing babies. He's winking at the celebrities. He's draining three pointers in your face. He's getting to the basket constantly, and the Clippers had no answer for him in Game one. So you thought, OK, they're going to spend the next 48 hours finding a way to slow Luca down. They come back out. It's the exact same story. I mean. 39 points, seven rebounds, seven assists. And he did it individually. Jim is like he picked on every single one of those Clippers players. Kawai lender Paul George Patrick Beverley, one after another and scored right in their face down the stretch to send that game, you know, to send Alice to a 20 lead. And you know, the Clippers are trying to say all the right things, though. We're not concerned. Let me tell you they're concerned. Their fan base was real concerned and real quiet down the stretch of both of those games. I think what we're really seeing here. It's a big time coming out party for Luca Dotage. It was muffled a little bit in the bubble, but he was phenomenal in last year's playoffs, and he stepped it up in a big time way this year. Ban golfer joining us I can hear all fired up. You are about him, and, understandably, so the guy really is amazing, like the guy's amazing Listen, I understand he's going to get hiss. We get that. But if basketball is a team game and given the defense of reputations, Band of quiet, Paul George, how do you explain them? And I know he's going to get hiss. But how to explain them, giving up an average of 1 20 per night at home in these two games? What's the explanation for that? Well, The trickiest part is, you really can't double him because he is such a good passer. He's on almost LeBron's level when it comes to passing and finding the open, man, and I think some of it is Dallas is secondary guys just being extraordinarily hot. I mean, Tim Hardaway Jr can't Mrs Schott Jalen Bronson. Can't Mr Shine Dorian Finney Smith in Game one had some really clutch shots, so some of those are probably going to come back to Earth a little bit. The problem for the Clippers is they just don't have five solid defenders that you can trust across the board. You know, they've got the two big names Impala Georgian Kwai Leonard, but you know they're struggling. It's a little bit like trackable. They just can't keep up with everything that Dallas is trying to do definitely give Dallas is roll guys credit for, you know, over performing stepping up big time, but to me, it really does all go back to Luca. If you can't find some way to slow him down if he's hitting his jumpers, if he's sitting that crazy, one leg three pointer drifting to the side. You don't have a lot of hope against his team because they've got some real firepower around them, too. Are so bad bottom line. What you said before that. So the Clippers air saying what you would expect? Certainly things we've heard before. Paul George quote. There is no level of concern. Tyler quote. I'm not concerned. Down to Oh, headed back to Dallas. Should they not be concerned how concerned they look and served during the game. We saw rage on Rondo and surgery back at one point exchange some words coming off. You know, Ibaka actually didn't play down the stretch of the game, and he did the classic thing of coming back out on the court post game to get some shots, probably trying to burn off some of the stress of that situation. Who knows? I mean, they tried to downplay some of the you know the huddle stuff, but they didn't look right late. They, you know, they looked overwhelmed. And you actually saw Lucas get up in Patrick Beverley face a little bit. Then you just kind of challenge him and tell him he's too small again. No competitive response from the Clippers. I think that's got to be really, really troubling for them just all the way around. As a franchise. The Clippers have never come back from the 02 hole in a playoff series ever to win in their in their history, So this is going to have to be the first time doing it, and they're going down to Dallas, where the crowds are actually bigger. They're larger in Texas, and they've been in California, so they've got all sorts of concerns in The craziest part about it. Usually of Kwai plays. Well, the Clippers win that sort of been the the formula here of these last couple of years. He had 41 last night. And really, he wasn't even close to being the best player on the court. That was Luca. So that's just another concern because they've got to find other ways to generate offense to support the stars if they just can't get stopped. And that was the real tell all these guys saying, Oh, we have no concerns. We have no concerns. If you go to collides interview, he just kept repeating over and over. We have to get stops. We have to get stopped, so we have to get stopped. Because they realized right now the Dallas is just steam rolling them with their offense. Come on. Right, then we have no concerns and stop lying..

"About three hours ago, the Internet was switched off in Myanmar following another day of protests against the country's military coup. Demonstrators had company on the streets on Sunday armored vehicles snaking through a number of cities in what appears to be the latest dialing up of the psychological pressure on the opponents of the jump to which overthrew the country's elected authorities two weeks ago. Automatic gunfire has been heard as a protest in the north of the country. On with fears growing oven, imminent crackdown on the protesters, a joint statement signed by European nations, the United States and Canada. It's called on the military leaders not to use violence against demonstrators and civilians on condemned the detentions of political leaders such as and Sang Souci. The world is watching is how the statement ended or thins are shouldn't laid years approach American democracy activist based in the city of Yangon, shortly before the Internet was unplugged. She described the mood in the city. Now we're seeing a different movement from the military. I like other days this evening the military tanks and track their rooming around the whole city. Many people reported that and also we have shootings in the northern near Marin. You, Gina. Basically, we all are frightened we all Friday and since the day that they released different Prisoner, Our off the prison. There was a mess. Pardon? They released more than 23,000. People are off. The prisons were so scared at the same time, frightened by any possible arrest and detention, and also intruders also coming into different words. And people are now protecting their own communities. Tell us more about the prisoners have been released. And why you're worried about that. In 1988 they released they had a mass pardon. They released a lot off criminals out on streets. And at that time there were a lot of crimes happened. People get killed, and they were given some many to organize some crying and cetera. And right now community people they get out themselves. He organized a security forces themselves and the arrest these people who are intruding our houses and Community, and they ask different questions to that people, and they already claimed that they were sent by military. That's clearly one. We're worried because these criminals these people will get on streets and they have nowhere to go out of Corvus situation. There were no transportation. They don't know where to go, and they were easily be misused. So we are Kind of consent with those plainclothes people at the same time, the military and the police, especially at nights, you say that you are afraid that the military is changing its tactics now, though, Yes. Now also, it is gone. For now They're gonna be international down again, starting from one end to nine year. We're not sure how long that would take that. They said it would take only a few hours. But we're not sure yet and When the Internet is shut down. Are you still able to communicate with other protesters? I think that's why people are scared, especially at night when everybody's sleeping. You know, the Internet wonder went down at night and we're scared that there will be more arrest. But we have message and up and goal line is on so we hope we can still communicate. The international diplomats in Myanmar have issued a statement Western diplomats calling on the military not to use force. Do you think pressure international pressure makes a difference? Obviously, yes, because it's overwhelming is is a deep pressure. We are also striking every day since day one, you know, online offline because we're giving a pressure. We're also doing Nonviolence movement called Civil Disobedience movement. It's a bit pressure to the military. So our Judy our responsibility. The best we can do is to get precious to the military anywhere. We can so diplomats they can use diplomatic power to pressure the military. So we welcome any action. It's by any government. But tonight you would say you and other people who oppose a coup are are nervous. Yes, we're nervous every day on board. Another cool, obviously. And that's why we are resistant. Our fear first is like fear. And then we get out on the street and we're not protesting in a mask. It were fighting with our own fear. We are also fighting with the fear. The imports on us is clearly a politics off here. So one once I feel that we will lose the fight, So we're trying to re sit on all fear first. That was protestor thins are should lay you speaking to me from Myanmar's biggest city, Yangon. The monthlong fact finding mission to woo hand by a team of experts chosen by the World Health Organization continues to arouse controversy. This weekend, China hit back at accusations that it withheld information from the scientists who were investigating the origins of the Corona virus pandemic. President Biden's national security advisor Jake Sullivan said the White House had quote deep concerns about the way in which the early findings of the investigation were communicated on questions about the process used to reach them. After some members of the team said they had not been given the raw data that they had requested. I've been speaking to one of them the Australian epidemiologist Dominic Dwyer, He's now back in quarantine in Sydney. So did he get access to the data he had wanted. We asked for a lot of data from the Chinese about their various surveillance systems, rather forms of disease such as influential and so on. To see if they were signals in that sort of information that might have suggested that disease was occurring in Wuhan before people realized. Look, there was other daughter that we would have liked to have got. We didn't get along that the raw data, you know the different types of daughter. Obviously, there's a sort of aggregated on what were the 1st 174 cases in December. 2000 and 19. And so we heard all of that data. But generally when you're investigating an outbreak, ideally would see what we call the line listing. You know the individual cases, one after the other to see what sort of questions were asked at the time of people who were sick. What sort of analyses were done because as information becomes available is the years gone on? Learned a lot, particularly around the transmission between people around pretty sick. I'm not sick at all, because that might make you redo the analysis in a different way. So we wanted to see some of that data. They certainly provided. Some of it were not able to provide it all but that information can come out then in the sort of second part of the work, which is around designing New studies to search out the origins. And just to be clear. What reason were you given for? Not being able to get access to that data that you were after? We didn't get a clear reason why it wasn't supplied. However, it exists. So does it off course that exists? Yes, that's right. And we saw it certainly saw some of it but getting it into a form. They're so enable outsiders to review it and go over it like you would do normally for any outbreak. I think that that, you know report, which is yet to be finally distributed will be the opportunity in there to get the data that way. And what about the locations? Were you able to see everything you wanted to when you went to the locations? We were so we had decided before we went to the places that warranted visiting, such as the obvious ones like the one on market and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, other liberties. Everything that we wanted to go and see. Allowed us to go and see on in terms off the lab in Wuhan, are you? Are you now constantly? Don't you can rule out the notion that that is where the virus originated. There's obviously been a lot of discussion about whether there could have been a lake of some form from the laboratory. And we're Acutely conscious of that we visited the institute. It's a very fine laboratory. But importantly, we were able to talk to the laboratory manager and song about a number of things. Lost them about their bus, safety precautions and management And also we spoke to the scientists doing the work on bet viruses to have a laboratory league generally those sorts of leakages Well, First of all, they're uncommon, but also they tend to be in the situation where people are actually growing. The virus is all the bacteria in the lab in high volume. And the vices most closely related to Cyrus K. V two is a back Boris called R A T G 13. And in fact, that bars hasn't been cultured in the lab. It's only a sequence of saying the viral genetic sequence so that couldn't have leaked from the lab because it wasn't being grown. And anyway, it's too far away from Styles Cov two to be the immediate parent forest if you like. We certainly didn't exclude it..
