Ron Jaworski: Making the Internet More Audible with Trinity Audio
"Us about how this whole thing came to be in what the big vision is here. 'cause i think we're on the same wavelength with a potential of converting text to speech so a festival. Yes yes to everything shed supervision is is is i have is so dip Basically came going down down the elevator. I was reading an article on my mobile phone. Go into my car and myself. Why can't listen to an article. I just started reading. This is the moment that they said was. If he doesn't it was two thousand seventeen in a homeless doesn't make sense that i don't have like an easy solution Just press play. This is it. i'm listening to and in. This was the eureka moment i said. Okay i need to set forth in and do that and day. I have a history common from from the industry from from a video products in a dealing with media companies in dealing with the users consume plugged in dealing with advertisers in because we also offer a monetization on top of our solution in i. I understood that there is a there is a product. The festival makes sense makes sense for the user because yesterday there might sets that they wanna listen instead of instead of reading instead of watching. I wanna listen. I understand that there is a two thousand seventeen. If for those of us the likes in odors there we started feeling like okay. This is our tom he's coming. It's coming soon. So i didn't understand it. There is in these markets education to be made but definitely media companies publisher called. It will start understanding coming using portents of and they're always looking content. Creators media companies are always looking for a generate in a new engagement with the users in you in user experience in of course if they can add a monetization air in generates Some revenue out of a thumbs up and in the last thing is advertised. Were when i was sure that you know the same that happens from tv. And then youtube started. And then you know in a lot of the budget went from a advertisement to video was shared. The disdain is going to happen. We'd we'd audio from radio two on audio in in different forms due to the fact of all the a additional data and information and targeted that you can use the digital landscape. So by this recent trinity. Because it's the only triangle between the user publisher in the advertiser and of course. I always tell these jobs. It's also funny to have the holy trinity form a couple of juicing in israel a but but but but this is. This is the moment that understood. I actually remember it clearly sitting in my car and saying okay. There is something here i am actually was both i understand. I understood that it make sense for me to make sense to a lot of other people in fact that it serves older check Peelers off the internet. And i remember the first a media conference win i had. It's funny i had like a web page. I think i even of usa today. We'd we'd some sold of an embedded there. This was the first a decided in a wrench for different five. I talked to people from usa today in from wall street journal. And show that okay. This is what i wanna to do and everybody looked at nagasaki. You did the crazy guy in drew.

Face Mask Sentiment Analysis
"My name is neil young. I'm affiliated with the department of computer science at the university of rochester and working towards a bs in computer science with a minor in and statistics. I m table professor of computer. Science at the university of rochester may research areas on in general a machine many data mining areas. I'm donna lie. I'm a junior at interested in rochester. L. majoring in computer science and economics will great to have all three of you here today to get started. Tell me a little bit about what brought the three of you together. Computational social science as one of my research areas and michael has been working on similar poppy extol. We've done a lot of election related research but this year because kobe nineteen it becomes clear to us that we should seize the sub -tunities though as i was teaching the data mining course. I encouraged students to take kobe. Nineteen as the topic for the project. So neon jonathan amount them though we investigate a number of issues from face masks ordine panic buying mental health issues contribues views of kobe. Nineteen terminology such as china but face mask is one of the most interesting issues. I'm glad neil and jonathan jumped on the opportunity right so as professor low mentioned our project originated as sort of final project for our game might in class then. We worked over the summer. Mer finding it so basically the impetus. I guess for the investigating masks as thick nineteen topic was the fact that it was so controversial. I think it's very interesting because we just sort of casually. I noticed that there seems to be cultural differences. In how americans sort of approach mask wearing and many countries in asia for example of french mass wearing. It's pretty ingrained in the culture. Just wearing a mask in asia means most of the time you don't necessarily sick like you want to prevent someone else from being sick seems to be the attitude but then these sort of attitudes towards pass was polarized in them skewed and then there's increasingly large amount of coverage about mask political issue right. You know we have articles about. Why will trump not wear masks or a certain demographics having difference us towards mass and so with these facts. We thought that it would be a good topic to investigate. Also i guess announced experiences kind of notice that like when it first broke out restoring General funny kind of just the wear masks you another. But we don't have to kind of shifted to everyone covering mass eventually and it being mandated for everywhere now. Well that's good to hear given that they definitely help in public health. But i get the sense that that's not a universal thing we can say about everybody everywhere. I guess to get started. Maybe you could tell me a little bit about how you collect data in this area. Obviously there's an interest in making some statements and doing some analysis around the usage and opinions about face masks. But how do you get started tapping into some data source that can give you a real place to start from so we choose social media as the source of data. This is different from other reports awaits rely on surveys and questionnaires and polls to study public opinion. Many issues including face masks so as some issues with traditional approach of using surveys to number why scale so typically us avail poll only involves assad. Noel fewer people though scaly issue ways. The small-scale came the buyer stole. We all know that post were not accurate in predicting the outcome of a presidential elections at least not the percentages and also pose surveys amount necessary. Real time 'cause you send them out. People may not respond immediately. They may not respond faithfully so only sort of weaknesses of a traditional approach so we decided to do social media where we can get lots of data are we can get a million users and we get these data on ongoing basis to perform real time analysis. We believe this approach overcome a number of weaknesses of the traditional approach. Yes so basically. There are some intrinsic issues with survey based approaches that social media data mining resolves. Now i've received the question before about why we choose twitter specifically and vesicles twitter in general the types of topics and the types of authorisation. That happened on the platform are technically more serious. Rights alike wouldn't necessarily go to instagram namely i because it's a picture based social media site while i'm twitter's mostly taste and then previously in the literature. Twitter has been verified as a valuable source of analyzing and predicting areas. Large-scale societal events. So festival mentions that his group has worked on sort of elections or example. The two thousand sixteen election sort of predicting. I believe the group did a better job when compared to the polls and the actual percentages just by using of social media. There's been previous works looking at h one n one pandemic Outbreak any sort of analyzing aspects of those pandemics so the twitter would be assessed
The Latest News On The War In Yemen
"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating. The muslim needs right now. Layla milana allen in beirut. Thanks for joining us.

God knows where does like couldn't care less to be absolutely honest with you after China let's talk about what it did. Currently it's what's the rule would risk their three point six, two full.

So we are building we're consolidating starting taught not the volatility of each of these daily candles on Bitcoin has eased. If we look at it from Las Ford is we had at one point six. Percent That's Today's down point two, three days three point, seven up point full yesterday a bad loss way closer the volatility has started to slow down a little bit and that's why the opportunities been coming out familiar with my trading. So with that slowdown of. Volatility and with the mock console adding a little bit, we could say they. Move Higher if it breaks high if it moves lovable could see that weekly pool back. It's just you know it's one of those times we go the way it does look we'll bullish and Barreto that boss it's about being patient knowing what you're looking for reading the market needs to be read and just taking Tom you know eleven thousand forty forty-five right now down point seven tonight.

It hits thirty point eight, which is now three tests over resistance league actually draw flat level in. A could be bitcoin breakout for lighter with a little basic they're out to get through. was saying here in exile as a potential trades around that thirty point nine sent mock white and see what goes on the weekly lost weight did it'll get moved was up five point nine, percent coal six percent.

Maybe kick off by just telling us a little bit more about Mangrove I gave the intro that but tell us. What kind of things did you get involved in the the clients in the deals? He'd be doing recently mortgage from that. So. We Peeing Stage Venture Fund. A. Little bit specialists that we have always two hundred million funds, but we have very concentrated portfolio, so we do around. Thirty investments, meaning sixty seventy dozens purpose. And we always believed meaning. We get in very early and we on active cheerleader if Pronounce. And we have data handled so review, so we're going down with the doper -tunities. Investment checks the. Half a million up to five ISH Huffman up to five million, so this is seed funding on it as a stage code precede as well, do you do both of those you say early stage you could clarify the difference between those and you guys lie on that. Yeah, we don't really kissel much work. At the moment being put on the rounds. TAME Long thirty percent. Meaning as a product out there, people. We don't cast much rather is the and do that? It descend bit more. Odious. Companies has revenues and the stage where. You. Go Raisin. Yeah right right excellent, and what part of your portfolio is comprised by voice technology companies in particular. You guys focus exclusively on that a new interest for you, so it's getting your interest I think we actually stop it looking at the space, the ALF. Ago. Since then we've done one investment in staged company called. See Better in Paris. Essentially pump needed to reinvent entertainment by beating rebate access to high-end.

You guys one of the earliest thing you really leading the charge on this or the other firms that are now dipping their toe in the water, and and showing interest in voice so us both bedrooms looking at the space in year but say. If, it of all investments that have been done net probably. Three to four venture funds that are looking at the space, but we definitely say. Would I one getting excited about it? Nice there any particular characteristics that you look for then in voice tech companies. A wide range of different types of products that are being launched. People are trying different things. I've some patterns just from interviewing people on the PODCAST, so I'm sure you've noticed some some trends as well as the types of companies will the type of use cases that voices being applied to the tend to do better from attraction, point of view, or from evaluation, point of view while other typical kind of the cases, all the areas potentially industries that are most interesting to you right now. Footed that into that? It's space so initially why we got interested in it is because it's so consume ass, using voice, technology and data, so basically used, but engagement conversion rates were extremely. Good. Instead of this, tell me us. They're ready. Use this new in. An extra enjoying it and they communicate engages. More than if they have to use the keyboard to put in data, so that will finish.

Everybody's involved home the next size this. Specific Arab just for us. But we are more than at all. Kinds of flux is use voice to enhance US experience into his. Business that at the end of the day eighty percent of the directions be has. Can Be done by boys, so we take him to do that. It's vision. We share absolutely the keyboard. It feels so antiquated.

You can't do business with us. Is just how to do how to do more quickly to get a foot in the door. So the the opportunities of that full Famo- business ongoing I think the challenges is currently a salads markets. We're experiencing higher prices that we've paid before where we're having to go. Nutri globally to get some of the stuff we need. While industry stepped up to the plate on the number of items but when the dust settles and business becomes more business as usual will come back into the normal game of competition and what we want to try and find his way of help in while supplies maintain the photo. That you've got will be other people out there who businesses. Well these all of us you know government legislators acumen and the whole of the the public sector eighty two the by to agree why is required in by Welsh on Ford P Phillips. I'm the director of the surgical materials testing laboratory. We based in Princess of Wales Hospital in Regent. We've been around for forty years in one form or another. We provide testing of medical devices to wash. Nhs UNTO particularly twelve procurement. All the gloves that we you've let us in ways if you're an each workup will would have come through all the Bodry to make sure that they comply with European standards and we provide technical advice to procurement on what of Standards and regulations. They should be applying. We've been I would say Cinderella Service Fall of almost Mike Korea. We've sort of come to prominence in the in the last four six weeks because everybody's looking test data and regulation of devices and P. P. E. We rapidly together a team from within. Sm T. L. who are good about five or six. I work in every day and we put an extra people in as required on are not just from ourselves. By the way from health technology ways in seed and some consultancies as well and we are screening all the certification that comes through to Graham's team so the life sciences had screen the the the initial a trench teen than deal with those who seem a promising and then we actually look in detail at the tickets that they've applied in the test ripples so we talked in broad terms about the demands on Industry. What about the role of Life Scientists Have Wales Shutting Matthew in the head of industry? Engagement at the hub explains now role is to support the acceleration on the development and adoption of innovative solutions for better health and well being of our nation sent more recently we during the Kovac nineteen outbreak. We've held a slightly different role. This road has certainly demonstrated to us the breadth of support that is out there across the nation of people wanting to to help in this very very difficult and challenging time. It's demonstrated in over fifteen hundred responses through the portal of organizations and people wanting to support this very difficult time and help the deliver the right products at the right time. Companies thought have fulfilled. The criteria are informed that they have been referred from the life sciences onto the various buying partners of which they're all a number so industry. Whales plays a an excellent part in this We've managed to forward offers people wanting to help with producing gowns so textile -tunities people have come forward offering manufacturing space. An all of those referrals have been sent on to the appropriate people. Those that have not fulfilled the criteria. Have all been sent a message explaining why they haven't fulfilled the criteria and given the opportunity to reconsider their application and then if they then are able to fulfill the criteria then they're referred back to the appropriate person. Fifteen hundred sounds a lot. So how do we get from an inquiry that looks promising to position of an individual being able to make a valuable contribution to the NHS? He is Greg Davis take A fluid resistant gowns. That we've been we've been buying. We've got a couple of enquiries one came to interact one came through the life sciences portal. We've got help from whilst governments. You Know Industry Wales Economy Industry. A to this applies to products the prototype. You need to get him. Certified and tested and peach symbol. Do the the checks on the patient. Testing eight mentioned it without doubt. We are using them more than we have before at too rapid pace. And they've done a great job. You know trump health but trying to help while supply base direct people to ask them. And then who would this lots of questions year round having certification? Should you have said indication what to see me mocking me? So just explain exactly what the requirements should be able to ultimately clegson old if a p any just wells some of the things that people think was p p such as the surgical face masks which are commonly known as type. Two all masks are actually medical devices other types of mosques are PPI respirate the mosques f. f. p. threes and then hand Gel Bigly using a commander and the sites so we have three sets of regulations. Medical device regulations P. personal protective equipment regulations and by your side regulations. And it depends what you're trying to sell to the NHS which set of regulations you need to comply with alongside the regulations. We have standards the type to our master mentioned. It's a medical device in the NHL. If you WANNA sell us a mosque like that you have to comply with the European standard. Which is one four six eight three? And if you sell respirator. That has to comply with E. N. One four nine two. So you have to have two things sorted. You have to have standards compliance which shows the performance of your device and you need to make sure it complies with regulations. That's where the C. E. Mark comes in so medical devices AC- earmarked under the medical device directive or medical device regulations and. It is basically the authority that you're given to sit when you put the C. E. Mark on your product. It means you comply with the essential requirements of that directive.
Perfect Pull-Back Time
"Lightfoot cuss may today as we move into the last a period of the the full day of the month of my cynical pullback occurring over the market now is that good will in my office damn good. Yeah I love pullback because pullbacks give me the opportunity to to get into. It's as simple as that now. We did see the market. Push up pretty well yesterday. Sorry last week we saw Paik You know was it ninety five hundred or thereabouts and said look at the high exactly yet. Ninety four seventy non and right now. Eighty five ninety. Of course. It's a really strong. Wake when you say the weight close out fifteen percent and we've had now one two three four five six seven weeks in a row. We have saying grain candles on the weekly chart on Bitcoin. Of course that he's after extraordinarily lodge a weekly plunge of thirty three percent and that weekly plunged from the Ivan to its low actually ended up being over fifty three percent at one. St So to say This move up. It's not that over the top to say on the daily. It's a fantastic trend on. Bitcoin and long might continue as long as we get some little cradle setting up in there anyway wrought. Now what am I waiting for this week if tried? I'd love to say bitcoin pulling to look anywhere around. Eight thousand would be ideal. A little bullish can off of Thousand would be my cradle tried and that would be absolutely spot on of course those of you who have not gone ahead and learned that strategy will then. You've got well until Thursday because we will not be offering these discounts any longer is Thursday that CDI Getting their take advantage of forty percent off bronze and fifty percent off live trading full for the year. If that's what you'd like to. So bitcoin now down three point. Three percent moving back into that cradles. Nothing really too bad going on their theory of sitting rotten smashing area right. Now you would have heard me. Talking is one thousand four one on a five little few weeks back is broken up through their pulled in that raging F. We do get a bullish candle in here on the daily a very well could be interested. They were down five point six four percent right now on. Alexa play a little bit further into the pool deck as well similar to that of of theory. I'm yet And it's located down four point three nine percent of just above twenty cents right now guy. A small bullish candle in there would be super. Bitcoin cash struggled to hold off to fifty during the weekend has pulled back. Strike to why we we closed. I would be close to fifty two in stride away. That was on that was yesterday. We've dip below that depth full point novice and at two thirty nine right now best via pretty average looking job as it has been for a couple of weeks ninety five spot four five six point two four percent law climb back in that cried ozone as well. The bitcoin still looking to pick them. Rotten now forbidden. Dateable back up again lot coins one. That is there on the right in that cradles Now Dan full point six percent at forty five dollars ninety cents per couldn't hold to ICTY couldn't hold three dollars come off unlocked. Shot right now to be honest with you. It's not a great looking jot. The weekly didn't close at strongest rots. Mike Banging that cradles on now its down point. Four three percent to sixty two bonnet swells good tried. Last week I go in and out of bonnets profit in out of lot going prophet and the weeks before I was in tasers which is also a very good profit some taking all the book because the mind three from three in the last three tries pretty happy with that car compliant about having consistent profits. And that's what we do here. We focus on consistent profitability with checklist by trading strategy will focus on mindset emotional control and structure. You're going to look at some of the testimonies on the website goes checkout will pay for me on on truthful guy and I give a deliverable possibly can buy ceramics. Forte's training experience. This is good stuff. You know 'til Thursday otherwise. It's going to be more expensive for you to do so. Get in there if you want down. Four percent sixteen point three six thousand dollars. Thirty six on bonds in that cradles Dom had a great run. Look it's coming in order to support rotten outside so gone back to what back in the two thousand nine hundred November period then through January twenty raw well this year and now Iran fathom that we're in the fifth month right now of the hadn't been coming into some supports a little cradle. That would be great right now. It's down four point. Four nine percent fondly won't fondly a theory classic one of the trades out they lightly. It's in the Criollos on right now. it's a really nice looking. Trend is one of my favorite trends of the moment to be fair. Also breakout last week is coming to fraud evening at six. Sixty picking above seven dollars fifty so it has given us some of a change after being around little bullish candle on the daily from Further Lock Bitcoin but have a few options down five point. Six two percent at six thousand eighty one cents Moran at the top ten with Tron one point four cents down four point seven six percent so a guys from our perspective. We've got that. Bitcoin that can pull back. Further being one of the trends Therion classic pullback Fo- They one of the better trends cod. Donna is in the same boat. If we do have a little cradle comes up over the next twenty four hours information that could be -tunities on on some of the others that are in. That crowd was on at the moment. Like a theory. I'm going to get some options. If we do say there's little bounces. We'll have to wait and say the pullback that we're seeing at the moment is something to be fearful no. It is something definitely to be
Automating Electronic Circuit Design with Deep RL w/ Karim Beguir
"Kareem is CO founder and CEO at Institute Kareem. Welcome back to the Tacoma area. Podcast pleasure to speak again. Absolutely so if Kareem's name sounds familiar. That's because we spoke We're trying to figure this out. It was between a year and a half a year ago The show actually was published in September. Was Number three hundred two and you should definitely check it out for Kareem's full background But croom wanted to give us a brief overview of what you're up to as well as an update from when we last spoke absolutely so I it's a pleasure to be back in. Continue our conversation on aside. He's been pretty invent follow. The Lot has happened as you know instead. Deep is a decision making a startup. So we focus on Problems related to making complex decisions We also do our own innovation and the tried to be helpful to the community and we've made progress basically on this three areas. We've been able to release innovative products. In decision making we've also been able to publish innovate in research Publishing original you know like pieces. That were actually. What come that nervous where we got the spotlight presentation for example with Google declined? And we've also been very active on the community side organizing major events in Africa and basically lots of young talents. Find say super -tunities in there and the we most recently saw one another at Nuremberg and had a chance to catch up briefly at the black dinner where you really piqued my interest around one of the company's new initiatives or products which is called DP. Cb tell us about what is absolutely so this'll be actually started with with conversation Two years ago I I had a dinner with a good friend of mine. Who is actually an expert in hardware design worked on like no chips for a well known phones etc and we were speaking about like. What is he doing this particular sector? And he was like not that much like particular like busy stunt for printed circuit boards so basically those ships that you will find with all sorts of Consumer Electronics Products Iphones Speakers Bluetooth etc and You know the situation in that market was that auto routers basically automated systems to connect the different components like built. Basically the electrical secretary have been going on for many years but they were not that make and we were like. Hey that sounds like an interesting problem to to look at. We started looking into it eventually. This good front now. Be True was now meeting or hardware team joint steady and we've worked very hard on this project and we're very proud to have been able to achieve goals and in November last year we've released it in. Beta form and it is a world first for the first time we have a system that is end to end fully deployable and scalable on the cloud capable of understanding how to route chips essential and now last time we spoke we. Our conversation was focused on the work. Your company was doing applying reinforcement learning to logistics is deep be also based on reinforcement learning absolutely and this is a very strong commonality and like design philosophy between or or products. So in a sense. Let me give you an example. We've we've continued to do great work in logistics and the recently last September. We've won a major contract for example with that. Chaban the German railway company and to give idea this is about routing trains on a large scale talking about ten thousand trains a day and some think on some thirty three thousand kilometers of railway but downs out their communities between routing trains and routing chips on a board and so we realized that the projects and the type of research that study is doing is actually applicable to multiple fields. And when it comes to imbed Ziegler printed circuit boards. They're putting compelling so. We went full speed ahead and this turned out to be office product. Alrighty so when you initially met with your friend your mention that they're you know while this these auto routers have been in place or have been in use for many years. They were not without their challenges and problems. What were some of those challenges and problems? And what was the opportunity to introduce? A I think Reuters have been the they've been. There's been a lot of great work. Donald Reuters but in terms of like design philosophy. The design philosophy is all about essentially using ristic's to solve problems and we spoke a little bit about this in Bester conversation so it's very similar to let's say what was the status of software for chess before out. Fazio came out the systems which were very well actually but still are built on your way. Sticks fought for the hardest problems. Ristic's have limits and a system that can essentially mobilize learning can. Learning get scale can get better results when it comes in particular for in the status of printed circuit. Boards it is actually incredible and we are in twenty twenty that actually complex sucrets still designed manually and the reason why people design those Mandy is because auto routers essentially a failed to deliver the goods to the degree of quality which is expected by high quality customers so we see a really compelling opportunity with modern built on the latest innovation. Some of it actually developed in house we actually have patents on the work done for the. There is an opportunity to accelerate the design cycle of products. Because it's not just about quality you mean. Engineers do absolutely amazing work and have amazing intuition. It's about the speed. Human engineer could take in certain cases multiple weeks if not months to completely root complex with more than we do believe instead that this timing can be proud to twenty four hours this if done at scale it would be tremendous for the industry and it would accelerate the product cycle. We are using consumer electronics to have a cycle every six months of the year. There's a new version coming. We believe that any I could actually accelerate A. That's that's a that psycho and as a consequence also make it easier to design new products and experiment and ultimately unleash more human creativity and mobilizing gay. You mentioned complexity of the boards as being one of the challenges. What are we talking about when we talk about complexity? We I'm assuming we're measuring that in for example number of components but having worked with circuit boards before there are also issues like the number of layers and things like that when you talk about a complex board. What exactly are you talking about? So about really consists in basically an. Kyi's that we need to connect and as a consequence like those guys they can be what needs to be connected so you have fairs of components essential get need to be connected and they could be thousands of those and as you mentioned rightly there could be multiple layers simple designs start with two or four layers that you could have a lot more and the more you have layers the more components you have to connect the heart of the problem. It is an empty heart problem and so this is where I can help. But you can you when you're looking at the most difficult designs that we take human engineers significant amount of time to solve
Long Term Athletic Development with Rick Howard and Tony Moreno
"The next thing we want to kind of cover before we get more detail. I you see it all over the web in his. Actually I forget which. Nsca facebook group. It was but over the weekend. Somebody's made a post. What do you look for in a sport or a performance coach for your child and immediately? I thought I wonder what long-term Athletic Development says about this so long term athletic development. Rick what exactly is it. Where did it come from? What's a great question who knows where it really came from just like everything else one of those indirect constructs that we talk about this word? That's out there to phrase it out that's out there but it has so many different meanings to so many different people and that's why I really enjoy working with Tony and our other colleague Joe is could not join us today with its here in spirit though. I think we've done a really nice job of taking some of the definitions in the formats. That are out there for long. Term Athletic Development tried to create something that's meaningful. The people lot of these terms really. Don't connect with people where they are. So that's kind of an obscure term. You know if we went out and said launch method development. Everybody let's do it. Nobody would know ogre talking about so. We break down the long term. How long is long term? Long term really cradle-to-grave while the models and programs that are out there focus more specifically on youth us. Tony Joe and I met actually doing the work for the sea which created the long-term Athletic Development Special Interest Group Athletic is another key element of that. You know in the United States especially we have this notion that an athlete equals elite athletes. But if you're not an elite athlete you really not an athlete. So that's where our problem comes in is we'd like the definition. Dan Bauer from Nike used. Years ago if a lot of other people. Tom Ferry from the acids to project. Everybody's an athlete. So we'll have some endeavour with trying to work on so so far we know that everybody's n- athlete in the last cradle-to-grave so to figure out what the development hardest and that's kind of like we were talking about before everybody who's in its movement field reader trying to get you to move or move better. I really liked that. Because that's exactly what I think we're trying to do here. A trying to bring it back to. The terms of people can understand if we tell people to go move. It doesn't mean anything and so many people in our feel get so upset. That people are actually moving. There's such a small percentage of the population that actively moves so Ltd. I think is a framework to get people to move to what they need to do to meet them at their level to do so. I think one of the things that I really enjoyed hearing you say there is really defining cradle to grave the fact that it's not just kids but it's everybody and unthought of physical therapists. I interviewed for this podcast. Any plus. Who's involved with the program called Move Nat? Which is just something. She mentioned that her eighty seven year. Old Mother do it. They'd mother does it. They do essentially organized play where they run. They jump they. They do balance beam stuff really a lot of fun stuff but things that probably most of us as adults don't do and definitely a lot of children are kids who are playing specific youth. Or they don't do it because and I'm saying this somewhat tongue in cheek it's not specific good thing with move nat to is that they actually have movements that they make it fun different animal movements that we've long forgotten. Evan done in year so they bring that back because Tony will often talk about talk about athleticism. Most of the kids now. Don't have those basic skills that we all had grown up. They can't give that can't even run correctly your job or anything. That's out there that helps to promote movement in a fun in aging way Antonia Tony I was actually thinking about this when I was out running with my dogs earlier today. The idea that there's so many really good athletes out there. You see somebody you know. We just had the super bowl yesterday or a couple of weeks ago. We had the The National Title Football Game Division One football. There's so many athletes out there that you watch the move but Kinda talk a little bit about how the fact that somebody who is phenomenal or really skilled in a sport may not be meeting that long-term Athletic Development just for a lifetime of movement. Well I think a lot of it as a rick alluded to you know starts. As Youth Youth is just so critical movement experience as the environments that were exposed to at youth to what we do a later on in adulthood and as we become older It's this concepts right. You know what I experienced I acquire do makes the LTD framework So great is that there are two pathways. You know yes. There's going to be that phase in your life if you're an elite or professional athlete that you are going to perform at a high level but then what about. What are you going to do after your trip in? What are you GONNA do in years beyond that? What other movement experiences do you have? That will enable you to move in other activities beyond your athletic experience. But then there's the vast majority of us are going to follow the framework as participation pathway. So when you see these when I'm watching these super bowl athletes players and things of that nature Yes their careers will end eventually because of injury or age whatever it might be Hopefully many of them would have been exposed to experience that will enable them to continue to move in service role models and the -tunities whether it be as coaches administrators as it relates to their sports again. The framework was fantastic about the framework is that it creates a pathway or a road or network if you will to kind of perpetuate movement throughout a lifespan. It's interesting the Wall Street Journal. Every Tuesday has something about somebody who does a unusual moved in her fitness activity. And today's article was on a former college football player who his sport is cornhole. And somebody from the Mid West and I'm kind of in the mid west near Pittsburgh Kinda go well. I don't really see that as a athletic endeavor that something you play at a tailgate or maybe at a backyard barbecue but he talks about the code. There's actually two hundred and fifty thousand dollars of prize money and he talks about the tournaments that last all day. And it's really an interesting concept of how somebody transitioned from college football to another. Maybe it's not my cup of tea or something that I want to do. Another movement activity. That really is something that I would imagine. He can do literally up until the day.
"The Peanut Butter Falcon" Cinematographer: Nigel Bluck.
"Welcome cinematographer Nigel Block. Nigel how are you today? Thank you very much so great to have you on. Nigel and I have to say New Zealand has been putting itself on the map a lot lately. Tyco RTD. With Joe Joe Rabbit phenomenal movie Tons of others you. A lot of success in New Zealand is true. We look. I mean you can send them. I mean headed his heyday in the civilian nineties. Expose with what we what was going to the cinema of unease great movies banking then and hasn't been a lot since then but it's still a very select kind of universe down there and and united something people talk about law in strive to be So yeah among crowds in your community and I think title what Katie said the same thing at the Oscars. I have to say though. Your Dad loves since cinema. Your Dad loves film. As you're growing up clearly has a love of all things. You know acting films cinema. That had the rub off on you. Talk about his love of the cinema in movies and how that might have impacted your love of movies and got to where you got you to where you are. Today he was a he mental Talks about a lot which I see but you know you eat a lot of film. Generals around discussion was the thing. We'd always father was very interesting. She against you as a Sanath Tinder. Coaching and a lot of discussion with him and exposure to things. That will come. Unusual film. Specially like a two lane blacktop. Very early on the picture and it still remains to be one of my favorite movies on but yeah I remember funnily the early days of cinema discovered with day so I have to ask you just as we hear terms all the time. Those of us on the outside not familiar with the industry. Is there a difference between a DP director of photography and the cinematographer the same thing or are they different in any way? There's more is a more European called fries. Photography dirctor photography's squealing. Hollywood comb Tune and you have this really interesting beginning where you're enrolled in school. You're old in film school and you know you reach a point mentally in your life where you say you know what I can kind of and I think this is how it unfolded where chief my goals without having to get a degree from school without having to get this degree so you ended up leaving. Just talk a little bit about a clarity Klein from the school though pretty much like you gotta listen. You WanNa be a cinema Taga. We can't teach you a cinematography specific stream. It was much more of a A Meta film school. That was more about Criticism and you know it was associated with hoping to find out school so they simply didn't have the tools to teach me technique. I needed to learn so it was an agreement between both of us and they are answered. The time was like listen. You need to discard join the industry which which is was then served me the only way forward to become listen in New Zealand at the time. Nigel was that a tough. Call for you to say you know what I could do this without degree. I don't need school to get where I WANNA be. No it wasn't. It was frustrated a little bit with the school at the time. And I've been there for a couple years and it seemed like exciting to go during the real world and I wouldn't have load magazines so it was. It was time the time it was fine and I have no regrets looking back. You know. It's I'm not dissing foam. Schools folk schools are incredibly places. In fact I went to the Australian After that film school because it was specific to cinematography but I think the schools are the ticket you get out of it agree or whatever. It doesn't really mean much. It's the experience of a narrative thinking film living breathing film being rounded making mistakes. That's welcome schools. And I have to believe Nigel. Things like the report you had with your father and his love of cinema and how that kind of transcended to you I have to believe that also had an impact on where you are today. It was always fung love of movies rather than a love whole photography. More importantly announce a combination of two and. I don't know if he's still with us or not. Niger but did your dad grow to see how successful you became your accomplishments. Everything you've achieved in life. Yeah Almond data. Solar added love a actually went back in time this year. For Christmas there was a screening of peanut butter Falcon at the little village that we live in a house in New Zealand. So early lovely time to bring it back and share. The local people in impact audience and everyone was very excited. So yeah it's it's it's it's it's lovely to Ivan they're on. I'm proud to Sharm suffering growth. Get to make stuff. Your Dad's love a film aside. Nigel the fact that you know. His son has become so successful and achieved so much. I mean that has to add so much to his already standing love for movies and cinema etc humour is yet years he loves and I'm very proud to be able to share. My sister's also direct a by left sharing that with him so clearly in your life. You've you've made tons of sacrifices commitments. You know dealing with hardships really kind of putting yourself out there whether it's dropping out of film school or sacrifices being away from family for long periods of time that I'll certainly has to add up. Nigel is there a way to handle deal with manage those sacrifices so it doesn't really weigh on people in the long run? Weigh on you when loved ones in your life too. I think are more privileged than a sacrifice whenever I have the privileged to work on something that I'm passionate about. That is that is amazing. I'm the sacrifices don't so much that the difficulty with the lifestyle to be honest this is making choices and putting yourself in a place where you can afford to make choices. And sometimes that's easy sometimes. It's not as easy especially now. I have a family. It's it's tougher. Detained things down but that is the for me. Is the secret to to to to being a full stock and can believe in work is that you have your -tunities to do the things we want to inhibit. You have saved US off. Open away that you had the opportunity to turn things you don't want to do down because Biz nothing worse than doing things you don't you don't passionate about. I've always had the privilege of doing this passionate place it's never been like. Oh I'm GONNA work now. You're so it's it's Anita feels like I'm GonNa Work of a day. It's it's just it's what I wanted to choice maiden and I think that's a healthy thing which making films is not high is not easy and needs to be able to wake up every morning inside Anyone do this Les Han Solo to do the best job possible. And that's why even went around to expes so this whole there is literally. I really love your comments on passion. Nigel because I see that all the time in the podcasting world or people trying to be something. They're not. Is there a movie or an actor that did it for you? We talked about Your Dad's passion. Was there that type of movie actor for you. It's a law of movies in a lot of people but the standout from as well as tune. Blacktop been tablets Correctly Y on. It was something about seeing that movie that time when I was about thirteen It was it was. It was a simple phone. It was elegant foam. The story was very simple. Skase but enough and those meditation to it just didn't feel like a regular American film. It felt like an Italian film. Which should sort of course MONTIEL's making this Spaghetti Westerns? And this is at that time and yet there's something about the simplicity clarity the study of and the the space in that avoid been really attracted to. I'm I'm very attracted to these stalls. Foams are and nets. That's really what I want to make thumbs with spice in time that have a major elements Humanity people on. And that's that's one of those. You Know Nigel as I look at. Your filmography Lord of the Rings True Detective. Two different seasons The unbelievably awesome The peanut butter Falcon. But when is the moment that comes for Nigel where you were you realize you know what I've made it at? Maybe after completing a certain. Was there a certain project you completed where you know the realization comes to you know what? I'm pretty good at this. I I could do this for a living. I mean the first film. I shot which was very young. I did Stick Mamie plays was at once the most difficult thing most hiring for the done but it was the most rewarding in wonderful in that was just feeling that existed in every day and challenged Wasn't right feeling and Amid repeated since I think that's just the first Things new every tax for hangers new in its unconquerable Today the more who make the issue of easier gets my vote. But that's some garment profoundly me and I kinda missed exhaustion. Sometimes when it comes back after a tough day will solve metallocenes. What then I I do. Welcome and embrace
A good new home
"We're going to go ahead and start off by saying hello to our guests. WHO's joining us out of Saint Paul Minnesota deb foster? She is the executive director for the India young and she is in mcroy. Ojibway from the Eagle Quin deb. Thank you for joining us for another one. Far Native America calling discussions thank you and how inspiring to just hear what this center aims to do especially for our homeless youth I and especially this age group. We know this is A group that often is left out left in the margins Tell us a little bit about when all all of this got started to make a special place for this group. Yes well The India Young Center has been and was started back in nineteen. Eighty three in response to Youth have been homeless And the red schoolhouse. K. through seven Educational Program noticing that they're young people were becoming homeless and so we started the emergency shelter alter and from there have just continued to grow our programs to be responsive to the needs of our community. And so we have Mini any genocide which is a prevention program. Our shelter Oh Yuck Gee which is a program for Equa court monitoring and services family advocacy children's mental health. We have a Transitional Housing Program for sixteen to twenty one year old and so it was probably about nine years ago when We realized that we were seeing our eighteen year. Enrolled in Nineteen Year olds dropping back into homelessness. And the reasons that many of us are aware of include turning eighteen and so therefore they're losing all of their benefits They're aging out of foster care with no place to go Many of them had extended their Short term housing options and so that was a very big concern. Earn for us and that many of our young people were not able to complete their educational goal or to sustain gainful employment -pointment and certainly we're struggling with Mainstream housing options and so forth. So we Began a vision that that we needed to capture these young people and give them some of the long term healing opportunities a -tunities and programming opportunities in housing opportunities. These young people needed in order to be able to sustain Those activities that they were already involved in such as education and workforce and trying to find housing and so forth so We I started out very early on with a lot of Community engagement and Connecting with young people who were homeless or had been homeless at the Previously to gather the information that was necessary to lead this project So everything that we did with this project was really designed around what the young people who were struggling needed it and wanted such as They wanted to be able to be close to transportation. So we're right. On the Light Rail. They wanted to be close to education food. Jobs things like that and so That was the beginning of our vision and From there are we just Did some early connections with the community members with our legislators The city the state eight and just kind of garnering a lot of support providing a lot of education a why this was so prevalent and why this was so needed and with that then we began to move forward to establish the right partners To make this a reality So it really was a response to our young people and Those eighteen particularly eighteen to twenty four year roles. That were falling right back into homelessness In deb this whole time as the planning was going on you're going to meetings Discussions were were happening. I'm sure your mind drifted back to these young individuals and what it would really mean for them to have a permanent place to stay and really get that footing to go to another a step in their life when you were thinking of those individuals. How much did that drive you to to? I WanNa make sure this happened to see those doors open. It was the core of everything that This at this building is We have as most of us know we have the highest disparities of of education and unemployment poverty and It's the reason is we know this is that our young on people are struggling with a sense of who they are as young native people You know the historical trauma that everybody everybody is aware of is something that oftentimes people think. Is You know so long ago. Kind of a get over it kind of thing and it really. It was something that lasted into the nineteen eighties the boarding school era. And all of that. And so what's happening. Is that that we have grandparents and parents who are who were potentially in boarding school doing the best. They can to try and raise young people but have been stripped of their culture their traditions their language and In sense of identity and so what is happening is that we're trying to provide resources for young people without first taking care of the initial needs the needs of our young people in our families which is to provide an opportunity for them to heal To you to reestablish or strengthen their sense of identity as young native people and to reestablish a sense of pride As a for a young person and until that is done until one has a sense of who they are a restored sense of who they are Really trying to push young people to just just graduate from high school. You'll be lying or just get a job you'll be fine. You know. Find a place to live. You'll be fine. Hasn't worked and is never going to work and so it was very in this building Is All about providing first and foremost that place at opportunities and experiences for these young people to who establish that sense of identity and He'll come to to be to be to be full humans in a really appreciate you explaining bat
Grant Baldwin on How to Find & Book Speaking Gigs
"Graham Baldwin is the founder of the Speaker Lamp Dot Com. I've known grand for about about seven years now and not only. Is He an incredible public speaker in public speaking coach. But he's a fantastic teacher. This is why I'm so excited. Have Him as as against teacher on today's show he's GonNa give you so punch values going to give you what you need to make sure you're successful as a speaker now. If if you want to get the most out of today's lesson take some notes. He's going to be dropping a lot of value a quick story about grand before I handed over to him. I know grant personally as a friend. And I've seen him on stage keynote events in front of thousands and even though he's a dynamic speaker on stage. He's hilarious. No he's he's really funny. Actually an incredibly valuable to the event on a personal level grant is sort of an introvert. He's not extroverted by nature. So it goes to show so you can be a great public speaker even if you're not extroverted gray embraces his introverted self and he doesn't change and this is what I love about him is. He's a skillful speaker. He's entertaining but he doesn't feel compelled to be this bombastic character in real life so without further ado. I'm GONNA pass it onto the Grand Baldwin to teach you the five steps to find and book speaking gigs taken away grant. Hey what's up everybody. This is Graham Baldwin founder of the speaker lab host of Collab- PODCAST and author of the new book. The successful speaker five steps for booking gigs getting paid and building your platform. So today I will be teaching you through the speaker success. Assess roadmap all right. So let's get down to business so the speaker success roadmap is going to make the acronym speak S. P. A. K.. This is a five step process S. for finding and booking gigs so the first one s is select a problem to solve select a problem to solve. This is where you need to answer a couple of key questions number one is who it is that you want to speak to who it is that you WANNA speak to. You cannot try to speak to everyone. This is a mistake that a lot of speakers and entrepreneurs make is that we think we can just speak to anybody. That just doesn't work so if I were to ask you who do you speak to. You don't want to say who do you want me to speak to or I speak to humans or speak to people like that doesn't work. You have to be very specific specific and clear about who it is that you want to speak to now even if you said well grant I speak to women okay. That's awesome but that's still like half of the world's population so you really want to be narrow and clear about who it is that you speak to the second part of the equation is. What is the problem that you solve for that audience? What's the problem that you saw for that audience? One of the things you have to remember is that as a speaker you are in the problem solving business just because you care about a problem just because you think it should matter to other people doesn't necessarily make it so so just because you're interested in it doesn't mean organizations are group's actually hire speakers to talk about that so there has to be this overlap between what you're interested in what you're passionate about and what organizations innovations actually book speakers to come in and speak about. What's the problem that they can solve for that audience so again remember you are in the problem solving business now? One of the things we tell our speakers or students all the time is that you want to be positioned as a steakhouse and not a buffet steakhouse and Nada. Here's what I mean by that. So imagine if you you and I we're going to go grab lunch later. Grab dinner by the heat and we're looking for a really good steak. We have a choice we could go to a buffet where steak is one of one hundred different things that they offer or we could go to a steakhouse where steak is all that they do and they are the best at it right. They don't do LASAGNA. They don't do pizza. They don't do Tacos they don't do anything else there but steak and they are really really good at stake. That's the type of place that we want to go to. That's the type of place that you want to be as speaker. Here's another way to think about this. Let's imagine that God forbid that you had to have brain surgery okay. Let's hope that you don't blessed that you did. You got a choice you can go to your local family doctor. Where they you're a doctor? They went to medical school. They probably took a class on surgery. They probably know a little bit more about the brain than you and I do. There are smart person or an educated person. But I don't know that they've done brain surgery or or you could go to the person that is a brain surgeon. That's all they do day in and day out. All I do is brain surgery if you break your arm. I'm not your person if you have a cough. I'm not your doctor. If you have asthma attack not the person to go to but if you have brain issue I am the best now. It's counterintuitive because we feel like in order to get the most possible gigs. We need to spread the net as far and wide as possible. More people I could speak to audiences I can talk to the more problems. I can solve the more topics I can speak about the more potential opera -tunities that I have but the opposite is actually the case the more narrow the more specific more clear the more focused. You are the easier it it is to find and book gigs. So remember here. You want to be the steakhouse and not to the buffet. You want to be the steakhouse the buffet. You WanNA solve a specific problem for a specific audience audience and not try to do all things for all people if I ask you who do you speak to you and you say well I speak to humans as Okay what do you speak about. Well what do you want me to talk about. I can talk about anything thing like that doesn't work remember. The first step here is select a problem to solve all right. The second part of the process is you need to prepare your talk doc. Prepare your talk. You know what the problem is now. Let's talk about the solution. What's the Louis Solution that you're going to bring to the table as speaker for this for this problem now? This could be in. The form of a keynote could be a workshop. It could be a seminar. Could be a breakout but you need to begin to think through what the talk is going to be about. And how you're going to solve this. It's now one of the the best tips I can give you whenever you're working on. Your presentation is US stories. Lots and lots and lots of stories if I said right now. Okay I want to tell you a quick story a you immediately as a human are drawn in. You have no idea where the story is GonNa go. Is this going to be funny. Is this going to be sad is going to be entertaining. Is this going to be interesting. It's going to be boring. No clue but we are drawn to story. We WanNa know where a story is going to go so one of your best weapons one of the simplest things that you can do is to tell a lot of stories. I'll I'll tell you a story I'd leave you hanging. I've noticed that whenever I pick up my daughter take her every Wednesday night to our local church youth group and so whenever I pick her up after church and we're driving home and as a good data. I'm trying to ask her like. Hey what did you guys talk about tonight with the youth pastor. Talk about what you learn and oftentimes even though she just laughed. She just heard him speak it shows. I think you talked about you. Know Friendship or docked about forgiveness or something like that you'll talk about these like one word kind of which part of it may be just a teenage girl. Nothing but the other thing that I've noticed issue saying Oh he told the story Oh he told the story about Da Da da and she can recite the whole story but she can't remember all the the other little the things that may have been discussed so people also remember stories. We remember what they talk about. Because again humans relate to stories so we have selected problem solve. We have prepare hair your talk. The E is establish yourself as the expert. Establish yourself as the expert now to do this need to key marketing tools number. One is you need a website. Now you know if you're listening to this podcast if you don't have a website you don't exist people won't take you seriously. You have to have a website a website also as a personal brand. I recommend that you use your name as the domain so I have grant Baldwin Dot Com. People are interested in hiring grant they come to grant ball dot com in fact having your name as domain is so important that actually purchased the domain for my wife and all three of my daughters and now I'm squatting on those until they need them someday and then I'm GonNa Sela Ah back to them at an exorbitant rate. Some pretty excited about that so you have to have a website. The second thing you need to have. Is You need a demo video. You need a demo video now. What exactly is a demo video so think of this like a movie trailer a movie is you know? Let's say ninety minutes long two hours long. They take that they boil it down to two or three minutes and within those two or three minutes you have an idea the plot the theme the characters all of that and the point of the demo video and the point of the movie trailer is to make you want to see more. Make you want to see more so you need to have that demo video because if you want someone to take you seriously if you want someone to put their name on the line and put their reputation on the line and hire you that they need to see something. They don't need to see the entire talk but they need to see something that gives them comfort and confidence when booking you that they've done their due diligence that they know that you are a good fit for their event. She need a website so you need a demo video fourth step. A acquire paid speaking gig acquire paid speaking gig. Now you may be listening. Grant Omar. I thought wait a minute This is the whole point like I want a book speaking gigs right but again I want. Let's go all the way back here. You need to do these sequentially. Do you understand now why you need to do these orders if you say. Hey I just just want to book gigs awesome. Who Do you speak to just talked to anybody and everybody okay? What do you speak about? I can speak about anything. That's not gonNA work. That's not going to work as a speaker. That's not going to work as an entrepreneur manure so once you're clear on who you speak to and then once you're clear on what you speak about was the problem that you saw. Have you have your talk ready. You've prepared your message Once you have your marketing materials awesome place your website your demo video then as the part where you start marketing now again. This is the part where you're just getting started. You're starting to take some action here because what the the mistake is that. A lot of speakers make is our website. I got my video and now I just sit back and wait for the phone to ring. That doesn't work. Don't make that mistake. You want to continue to moved the ball
Pay Your Dues Now: Living for Another Life
"I have been talking about this. We've been talking about it a lot don today right over the past several months and we've been kind of working through it and processing what it means when we say it how we receive it it from other so we want to have this discussion today because we think that the advice that we're going to share with you and talk about some that a lot of us have received as Moms uh-huh who have children who are still young and we think that a lot of us probably need to pause Lauren. I included and really process through what's being said and how our hearts to responding. Yes so the phrase or maybe it said in in various different ways but the phrase that we wanna cut dissect talk about today goes something like this typically from an older woman or the influence or popular teacher or even emily and I or your friend who remain lots people say this they say something along the lines of. Hey if you're faithful and the small things right now God's going to give you big things to be faithful in later or maybe it's the best thing you can do is be faithful where you're at right now. Do that unseen work or later. There will be time for you to do those other things. Yeah I think basically. It's this idea that what you're doing now. The unseen the faithful will eventually give way to this type type of visible fruit. And I think a lot of times when we hear this advice given this word of encouragement it's really delivered to like. We said a MA. Maybe she's got young children and she's just feeling a little discouraged. I mean I think about this season of life. Maybe she feels like she's getting kind of tired of making some of the sacrifices that she's making she's feeling like I'm having to say no to a lot of opportunities for advancement so that I can care for my children. Maybe feeling feeling like she's reached her limits and so again the older woman or the influencers friend. We've done this kind of comes in and shears her own story and can maybe you look back and say you know like when I was a mom of young children. I wasn't able to do all that I wanted to do. But then later when my kids grew up I I did end up getting opportunities -tunities to do some of those things I just needed to be patient and then as I was faithful in those little years I was willing to do unseen things. Those were great practice for what I have and where I'm at today. Yeah and we think there's definitely a kernel of truth to all of them. Yes and that women who say this are coming from a really good place again we we WANNA be the first to say. Hey we we probably version of this ourselves we have had dear friends say this to us and we see it online. It's very it's just very popular. I'm very prevalent. Yeah and I was GONNA say like even as somebody who now has okay. I have a first grade him so far along. But I can even look back and can imagine myself self sitting next to a mom that has a toddler and a baby and going here in a few years like they're probably going to be it's going to change and there's probably GonNa maybe less demands and you may have more time to other things like I can imagine saying we've probably on record our show so don't hold us do it with the point I mean is that it is it is true there is a lot of truth to that and it comes from a good hardware. I think that we're trying to remind one another to be focused on the right things right right. Older women are not younger women to work hard to let their husbands and children to live for Christ and so they're trying to encourage us to be faithful. Live according to your design. Yeah we're doing a lot of unseen work as as Moms of young children just as moms period and so that's an encouragement to stay focused on those those right things right I think another another heart behind it. It's kind of this reminder like following Christ requires leaned on your life it require sacrifice so we see that keep going. Your Life is not your own on keep following Christ or share that share that monastic. And we're saying that we're yearning belting. I thought that was okay. So wow I don't even know where you get an example. Yeah okay so in monasteries. I Dunno go to your own fact checking but in monasteries I think they have bells that ring throughout the day. Like some some monasteries would maybe have seven bells. That ring throughout the day in the point is every time the bell rings the monks stop and pray and the bell is this constant reminder that no matter what they're doing when the bell rings their time is not their own time belongs to God and so it's almost like this forced interruption into what they're doing so that they can continually turn their hearts toward the Lord so I heard the saying that children are like the monastic bell for moms and so every time they come and interrupt us it's this reminder in the little years at our time China's non our own it's meant to sacrifice and I think that that's some of what women as they're saying this to maybe MOMS have young kids like hey. This is the season where the children are. Are that bell that reminds you follow. Christ yes oh. I love that. I thought that was so good. Another thing it encourages us that we actually don't know what God's going to do with our lives you know. There are seasons in life that do bring different opportunities and limitations just like we were talking about what to Cheer Aside They WanNa remind us that. Hey you know in all of of this God is working for our good and his glory and there is greatness. That comes with that. I think another thing that is often wanting to be expressed is this desire desire with maybe decades of life experience of following Christ is saying look. There's a true connection between what you're spending your time on. And what comes of that later in life like God is is working in you things that he's going to use later and I think it's encouraging us to say there's eternal things happening. Just hang on because God is preparing you for something later. And that's a true thing. Remain instead what we invest our timing. Yeah so all of this. This encouragement we think people what they really really mean. If you were to kind of pin them down and ask when by that they're just trying to keep following Christ raced keep giving him everything. Trust Him with your life. No that won't always look the same way it does today. And we know that probably some people might mean this is in a prosperity Gospel e type ways. Caveat for that where like you do x. then you'll get Y but we're not talking about those people we were talking about women who or sharing this in an effort to encourage you and do all the things we kind of just said right and so what we want to transition to as Lord I were processing through this. We're realizing that. Sometimes when we hear this it falls on our hearts and it falls on her ears and such a way that kind kind of like angst and US or maybe it tempts us to respond. In a way that's like inconsistent with what they mean. I oh I think for me personally like when I would hear this especially years ago when I was in the thick of really young children I would think I'm just putting my time in now like I'm I'm GonNa the Sacrifice I'm going to do the hardest thing. I have no recognition. That's okay because someday that's coming. These kids are going to grow. And I'm going to do the bigger better thing. I've just got to be safe. I've gotTA prove proved that can be faithful in these small things right now and when you're tired and you're maybe appealing disappointed about the stuff you're sacrificing or discontent or you're starting to think think. Hey life will be better when kids get older like I was. I think that often it can. This message can fall on us in a way that we cling to him the Prosperity Gospel take it that way yes exactly and I think that this can tempt us to kind of undervalue. Our Work Today Day and so we start to rank. What we're doing now is like well? This is kind of smaller. This feels like a little bit boring or like you're saying like this is my pain my idea because the later data work the work. I'm going to get to June five years or ten years or when my kids go off to school when I'm an empty Nester. Whatever it is then it? Life is going to be more fun in and more satisfying and I'm going to get some of the things that I'm giving up now. And then I think we also start to potentially think of our work for the Lord as a bargaining tool like okay. God like I'm GonNa give you this now but I'm expecting you to pay me back
Sanchita Balachandran Shifts the Framework for Conservation with Untold Stories
"The field of conservation was created to fight change to prevent objects from becoming dusty broken or rusted but fighting to keep cultural objects preserved creates a certain mindset the mindset of protector a mindset. It's too easy to imagine objects and cultures. In the state of stasis. This is how it always was and will be forever. Often I mean just given the colonial oneal had an imperial histories of museums. It was because people were going to be gone forever. That culture was gone. And so this is the last trace but in fact. That's not how cultural heritage works it. It's transformed it's changed. It continues on in different forms and a lot of the way the Conservatives think about cultural heritage is is about out mitigating that change. which makes it a little bit fossilized but to me that changes where things are really vibrant exciting and people are so closely connected to cultural cultural heritage that it really feels alive? This is since Cheetah Bala Chandran Associate Director of the John Hopkins Archaeological Museum. Hello my name is Cinci Bala Alexander. I'm conservative and I'm trained in the conservation of archaeological materials in particular and my day job is the associate director of the Archaeological Theological Museum at Johns Hopkins University. Bala Chandran founded untold stories a project that pursues conservation profession that represents and preserves a full spectrum of human cultural heritage for the past few years. The project has been hosting public events at the annual meetings of the American Institute for Conservation Conservation Untold Stories emerged of bollocks hundreds frustration with how narrowly the field of conservation has been defined at felt that there were literally early too many untold stories in the field of conservation. I wanted to find ways to actually start to think about what else cultural heritage could mean other than say the things we typically think of as belonging in a museum or many of us cultural heritage means going to this important looking building that has paintings and sculpture and has labels labels next to it and I think we kind of decided in some ways at that's cultural heritage and preservation means taking care of those things and really I've become more and more aware error and curious about the fact that cultural heritage is much more complicated and diverse set of practices. It's often not necessarily about a single object or a thing but rather how that thing might function within a community or communities as as part of a series of practices and exchanges and storytelling and I just wanted to have a way to kind of work with people who are really doing that work outside the museum and doing it in ways that I think preserved Europe but also change cultural practices since untold stories takes place at the annual meetings of the American Institute for Conservation. A lot of professionals in the field Are already gathered there. The meetings attract over one thousand conservators blake many professional conferences. The meetings are often held in a nondescript hotel how setting but untold stories makes it a practice to conceptualize where attendees are sitting and the history that preceded them an example of this is the twentieth nineteen eighteen untold stories event titled Indigenous Futures and Collaborative Conservation. How many times have you been to a conference and you could be anywhere right? I mean you're in this big room and you never leave the hotel or the conference center and part of what I was interested in was trying to actually place a somewhere so twenty one thousand nine since we were actually meeting at the Mohegan Sun which is a Mohegan owned casino. We were on native land. It seemed like a really important opportunity. -tunities to talk about native sovereignty kind of history of genocide in our own country. The fact that anyone who's non-indigenous in this country is a settler settler colonialist but to really think about what this means in terms of how we take care of collections that have come to us as a result of historical happenstance stance but also a very violent past and to acknowledge the fact that museums which for most of us who work in museums are very safe. Welcoming and joyful places uses are evidence of this history of of pain and removal so the opportunity to work with the commod educational initiative was really exciting. Because because it's a partly native co-founded and they do a lot of educational work around questions of how even think about the history of this country story and to me. That was really important to be able to say in native space as opposed to you know in a place somewhere else. Part of of Bala. Hundreds point is that there isn't such a thing as a textualist cultural material. The intentionally nondescript conference ballroom has a lot in common with deliberately sterile museum environment episode. Sixty eight of this show features an interview with Ed Wanda's spears director of programming and outreach at the adamant educational initiative and one of the convenors of the twenty nineteen untold stories event in the episode. She discusses her presentation about how native native narratives are violently presented through White Lens in museums. It was in Donna spheres of Who suggested the title she had worked in museums? She's very familiar with these questions. And she's the one who suggested indigenous futures which forces you to recognize that this is not something of the past. We really wanted to do something. The thing that felt like we were going to push. This had to be uncomfortable but it also had to be aspirational. Where do we go now? And how can as conservatives servers we actually be part of this very kind of collaborative supportive mission to ensure futures. We can't make it happen by ourselves. It's it's not like we're saving anybody and that's another big concern of mine. There's a real sort of savior mentality that I think conservation has ask we save objects and I certainly came out of graduate school thinking that I was going to save everything and to me. That's a very problematic way to think about it because frankly if the objects still survives it didn't need me it made it thousands of years without me somehow. We've decided that we're the ones that making the that make these things live live forever which is pure arrogance so part of this event was really to think about how as conservatives can come up with action items and by action items. It was practices but more than anything of kind of Shipton in a mental framework for working much more equitably and more humbly to really have a sense of respect for this notion that there has already been a history before you and so when you enter into this hopefully collaborative relationship you need to acknowledge alleged. Things have survived for a long time without your intervention. And they don't need you but you could actually provide some sort of service some sort of benefit that could actually really help the untold stories team. True to their mission is careful not to present the workshop as a single solution or even a set of solutions. The team wants wants to counter the assumption within the profession. That all you need to do is go to one workshop and then you're all done you know. Unfortunately this doesn't change the working working practices it doesn't change the mindset. It doesn't change the way an organization functions and what happens is then marginalized people are called upon again and again to kind of keep performing this vulnerability and this discomfort for themselves in order to educate people who are unwilling to do the work that consistent like every single day for the rest of their lives work that will be required to make transformative change possible part of what in the twenty nineteen in conversation we. We felt very strongly we had to say is if if you really believe in equality if you really want to do something that is truly collaborative that does not assume some sort of hierarchy. It means being really uncomfortable the entire time and maybe at the end of it things will change but you you still have to kind of follow through on it when it gets really uncomfortable. And the fact is most marginalized communities. People have done this entire lives so it it just feels like it's time for you. Know I think in general the museum community to say we're willing to engage in these kinds of difficult ongoing perpetual natural
Google buys Fitbit for $2.1 billion

We got great partnership with a big city fourth largest city in the country and come here aid to get out of the Pentagon to beat some some of our chairman like Nick here who had this great partnership with this wonderful place called NASA we've been having it's not it's a partnership since nineteen fifty nine right is it is a great relationship and I actually wanted to go deeper into both of your stories just to kind of get some more context and background on on how this relationship comes what it takes to be a part of these two organization starting with General Wilson I know you were commissioned from Texas am university in Nineteen Eighty one and you've had a lot of different positions a lot of difference my wife and I have talked we've moved twenty one times the dollar United States over overseas too so we've had lots of amazing jobs I did go to school right the road is Still College Air Station it takes 'em university kick them out there I hope there's not too many fans here on the on your podcast amazing people and amazing technology and to do amazing things to help protect our nation and so most people would say they join our air force because of cool stuff that technology but they really stay because of the people that's right now you've you've stuck with the air force and you've any risen through the ranks and it sounds like it's because of your your passion for the job is that part of the reason I say the passion for the people passionately the people yeah because you get to meet these people from all you know all across our country and you keep finding them they're just so simply using every day you meet somebody go man I just I'm glad they're hundred team glad they're helping us we often we have these core values and therefore some talk about integrity I service before self excellence and all you can do go but you meet these these people that we didn't have to teach them that they can learn around the tables at their homes and there oh you and Colonel Hey you can probably you can speak to this is is I believe that idea of teamwork and working with people is is very much a part of NASA as well I think it's it's just a good quality to have all around to be able to work with others and appreciate others yeah absolutely you you look at if I look back at my experiences in the air force and then I look at my time here at NASA you can see the parallels in the workforce and it's approached the the commitment to the mission obviously missions are different but the just the passion that everybody approaches their job with every day you the whether it's in the air force or whether it's here at NASA were doing really difficult things and we do them routinely we do really dangerous things and we do them safely and we do that because we worked together as a team and so Eh teamwork is the life blood of either organization it's really all about the people now you've been a part of both so tell me about your career progression going from the Air Force now to NASA Yeah so you know I get that question a lot you know how how did you end up where you're at a lot of people are interested and I couldn't tell you how it happened other than I was given a lot of amazing -tunities in the Air Force That gave me the background in the experience that I could bring to NASA an add to the team here that started out as an acquisitions officer so I was working in a lab running program managing a spreadsheet and some of my Phd's that worked for me You know much better than I was and from there getting involved with with flight test in and being able to teach at the academy getting exposure in Washington DC and seeing how all these complex organizations work and get things done those were all opportunities that I may not have actually been looking for them but the force presented them to me and and they were amazing And that gave me the background to really figure out who I was and what my passion was I enjoy working with really technical complicated things but something that I enjoy more is doing that in a you know a team under a pressure situation and in there's you know NASA if you WanNa do that that's it's a place where you can find that exact challenge very much so now this is just one career we probably have it in our everything from public affairs officers in finance officers and communicators and maintainers and aviators. until officers and special warfare airman I mean you you name it we probably have it in our air force that's amazing so so let's get into the nitty gritty I like to do this as part of enjoy what they're doing and enjoy being a part of an amazing team that Nick just talked about one of the things we don't talk enough about just because we have it life is also in the air force that's right and so family members also serve lots of them in the we mover family and kids around a lot and they also serve an incredible Nick I'm sure you are encountering the same things moving around and and dealing with all the locations yeah you know Katie and I haven't moved twenty one time uh just under under ten but we've you know it's it's been a challenge but one of the things that makes it is one of the things that makes it the so so amazingly well and and so

"And see if this opera -tunities right for you, eight six four six eight seven eight seven I'm here with Michael. And I think today you wanted to get into a little more detail on how exactly our system works. What we do is called short term trading. Now, first of all when we talk about trading. I don't want anyone to get scared off or intimidated, we've designed this program at a fifth grade level for the average person. I didn't know anything about trading when I first started. And most of our members didn't either what we do is trade one product on the SNP five hundred it's called an e mini future. This is very different than other trading programs. Most trading programs are very complicated and trade all sorts of different products some other programs I've investigated. I I felt like I needed a degree in economics. Stephen. And understand what's going on. This is not like that. This is simple. It's one product. We trade the evening future in both directions. So we make money whether the market is going up or down we capitalize on all types of market conditions. And our program is designed to help protect your capital and minimize your risk. What we do is called short term trading. So it's different than long term investing. We get into a trade. And we normally get out the same day sometimes in a trade for fifteen minutes, and sometimes we're in a trade for three hours. So there's really two sides to being successful at this knowing one to get into a trade and knowing when to get out, and this is where our software so accurate. It tells us when to get in with a green light and when to get out with a blue light. It's really that simple. So you don't need to sit there and think about the trade you can follow the software. Green light, blue light. What I really love though is the mentor of our group who is the creator of the software and one of the world's leading traders, he is leading each trading session. So we're all logged onto our computers from whatever city were in and we're trading our own money, but it's basically just following the software and while you're following the software. Our mentor is trading his own money. Live. So you can literally ride his coat tails, and trade what he trades. The how cool is that? And in addition, our mentor is teaching us as we go. So you can learn what makes good trade what makes a bad trait. There's no other trading group out there like this. So you have the software telling you when to get in and when to get out, but you also have our mentor. He he's personally guiding you, and you have the support of other members of the group, we have some people in our group who were experienced traders. But they weren't realize the prophets. They weren't realizing the profits they wanted and so they joined our group to become more profitable. And many of our members were completely new to trading. You know, John I was just thinking about last Wednesday. I had personally my best day in the past six months. I made more in one day than most people making a month. And all I did was click. My mouse three times that day. That's it. Sometimes I almost feel guilty. I never knew making money could be the Ceesay. The software is incredibly accurate. If you follow it, you should be successful with the majority of your trades and our mentor. He is really passionate about teaching our members we use what's called a trade ladder. It's on the screen sometimes for training purposes. You know, some days are slow, and we might only make one or two traits that day. So while we're sitting there, and we're waiting for a good trade opportunity are mentors teaching us. So we're always learning. It's very educational. And like we said earlier, you know, we can sit here and describe this as best we can on this radio show, but seeing is believing. So we invite anyone listening to see it for yourself. We're inviting you to be our guest come and sit and observe for two days each day's about two hours..

It is I think Jones can wake up he's been to a Stanley Cup. Final before we were talking about with EJ earlier in the week. But at some point is this. Team. That's just kind of laying in the weeds and we'll flip the switch complain offs. Or is this a team that has been exposed? And is just going to be an easy out. We're gonna find out but with their games remaining. I think they've got five games remaining might be good. Good idea for them to try to use those five games to get better. You don't wanna be stumbled onto the postseason winning three of your last fifteen games or whatever if they don't win between now and the end of the season, Chris I Don good news. Looks like you'll finally get to see Carter heart on Sunday. Also, any chance of getting Bill climent against great Bill, and I are very I don't wanna say close, but we're friends we did shows on an H L live together. I'm actually I'm not probably not gonna see him on Sunday because the games on national television. But I love to get Bill. We can preview the postseason because I know he's very close with the rest of the league love Bill bill's a great guy. We talk every now, and then he's helped me quite a bit of my career. So that is an excellent suggestion Chris of getting Bill Clinton on and I will try to endeavour to do that at some point either before the. Regular season in the playoffs. Forever. T eight says with well what non original sixteen or you pulling for most to win a Stanley Cup. I wouldn't mind the sharks finally winning one. Eventually, I'm with you. I've always been partial to the sharks. A couple of interesting reasons why I mean, always love their uniforms, and I remember, and I might have told the story on game conduct before this is back in the early nineties. I actually won my hockey fantasy league because we actually had a waiver draft. Really it was really intricate fantasy hockey that we were playing we actually had a waiver draft and I picked up Santa's old odorless in the waiver draft. And he almost single-handedly handily won that league for me. So I've always been partial to the shark. So that's probably a team that I would root for to Winnipeg. I think would be a great story of they won the Cup Nashville. I think would be very good for the league if they had one. So those are some of the non array. Six teams. I think it'd be great of the islanders were when were to win a Cup again. But that'd probably be the order of my rooting interest down the stretch. If Winnipeg played San at probably would root for Winnipeg, Dan says. Islanders caps penguins. Fighting for the metro could come down to game eighty two next Saturday in DC between the islanders and caps. Huge comeback win for the Allders last night on the road in a tough building. This is what it's all about. I am am I right playoff hockey in March. Absolutely. It's I get so aggravated. I've said it so many times that when people say the regular season is meaningless. They just don't pay attention the regular season is very meaningful. And there's gonna be some pretty pretty good hockey teams. They're gonna miss the playoffs this year Montreal's, good hockey team. They may not make the playoffs. Right. Arezzo has been a great story, man. I make the plows Minnesota..

"Clients get your own clients, if you think you can do better if you think you'd rather not do any of the service the management, but you really enjoy the stuff you're doing now, then see what you can do to bring your boss clients, and let her do the heavy lifting, especially if you think, oh, she lost some people because of you know, whatever freak thing either way fill those gaps. If you think you'll eventually leave this company and go off on your own. There's no reason not to get a client or two on the side is long as you're not breaking any rules in doing. So just be aware that if your boss finds out rule breaking or not she may not be happy. Even if it's not prohibited by the written agreement you have in place with her already. So keep that in mind, but what I would do honestly get a side hustle. Get some clients going is long as you're allowed to keep it under wraps. It's it's not your boss's business. If you're a contractor. It's none of her business. Exactly you can try to help her. If you if you feel bad like if one of the clients went out of business or stopped using you guys for some reason that seems freakish than fine. It get a couple clients. Get on the buses good side. Make sure your staff to those projects get a little commission. Otherwise, you know, you don't have to be behind your boss on this a lot of times. Freelancers find out their bosses inept, and they just happened to be older or have been in the game longer. Maybe you need to get your own clients. That's a there's a better insurance policy there if you're controlling that interaction is long as you don't hate doing it. The hate doing it. Let your boss do it. Just be aware. There's trade offs. All right next up high, Jordan. I've had a lot of success over the past four years in my current role at a property development company in that time I had four promotions. And I'm currently a director in the company. My current boss has been there about the same length of time. But his held the same position over four years ever since I got my last promotion I've noticed. That he started to do things subtly to block my career from progressing further which would mean taking his job. I can't understand why. But this is frustrating. I know a lot of other people in the firm know, the value that I add to the company and relatively how incompetent my boss is. I'm struggling to think of options for how I deal with his career blocking attitude for my boss, for example, not forwarding me important emails or passing on critical information not reviewing work in the time required. Actively trying to put other people in -tunities over me grateful for any advice. You have cheers job blocked. This is a natural consequence of being smart and bishops you're coming up against politics from a lower level. So give your boss a chance to not do this stuff before you take matters into your own hands. Have a conversation in writing with the boss us specific examples of let's say not sharing info, not reviewing work on time, etc. Explain what this does. And how it makes success for the company impossible, not just you. But you and him as a team for the company as a team got it. So you're locked in this awkward thing with a boss who's blocking you call out the awkwardness because right now, your boss is totally getting away with it totally getting away with it. Right. Be non-threatening non-confrontational. And if this does not work, then go to step two, and I'll tell tell you that in a second. But so make sure you do this in writing again, don't just walk in and be like, hey, these all these things that happened. Write it down in an Email that it's in on. I will say this. You might not be allowed to do this. But do it anyway, BCC BCC, not Nazi BCC a personal g mail account. Because if you get shit, canned you want copy of this Email that says you told your boss not.

I forgot I was sitting next to a NASA apologised to one hundred ninety below. No. It was really sad story says how how they they kind of gave up on it in the fall. They said we'll give it another month. And then yesterday Tuesday of this week. They finally give you say here we go.

"I started to notice this when I was I was backstage with Jesse. It's ler a couple years ago, and he's he's built and run a couple of hundred million dollar companies. And I asked him like, why do you come give keynotes? Why do you do this stuff? And he was like this is just what I like to do. This is this is me free. This is me doing my thing. And he shared with me that every time he did that every time. He does that really big businesses really Cooper -tunities just kind to happen. They just kind of show up Tom Bill. You was exactly the same way. Because if you listen to his story, he did kind of the same thing. A lot of us. Do he walked away from something that wasn't making them happy? And he started doing this thing. He liked it so much that he was in the he was in the kitchen, cutting up quest bars by hand six years later, it's a billion dollar company. Interesting. Experienced this when I met Moyes I Li he spoke at our event earlier this year got to one hundred million in two years. And it was so interesting to hear him tell the story because he said everyone else was telling us exactly how we should do. It was telling us all the distribution mechanisms that we should use to get our products of world. But none of them felt like what we wanted to do. None of them felt like they were are unique thing in the world. They took us out of alignment of who we wanted to be. So we just didn't do any of those. I mean, they might be great opportunities. But I'd really much rather build a business that I'm happy with the result result was that they got acquired for one hundred million dollars two years after being founded. It's so easy for us to put money as the thing that makes us free, but money is a byproduct of value. That's all. Money is the exchange of value. The more value, we create the more money we make but value..

No. I mean, we've got some thin scene. And I I mean, I don't I can't speak to places in Arizona. And you next like, I know what I know in terms of what's already there and true viz. They're not they're not very good in the places that they're they're, you know, the work the patrol can taste Pacific Lee that in certain places barriers allow for chokepoints which helps them, but it allows for traffic to be driven to some of the most desolate areas, which makes it even more difficult for people to actually come through. But you know, again, it's it's a these are rifle-shot arguments in right now they're being made by the administration. You know, scattershot shotgun. Just I mean nonsensical. And some cases. I mean, I heard the president say last week about truck's being driven through the desert, and that's just not it doesn't happen. I mean, some of the roughest terrain. Well, it is that you don't have any team lay of driving through the desert through the desert without roads. No, I mean, it's ridiculous. So are there instances where you? Would support a structure we're we're past wall at this point. Now, it's now it's like steel frame structure, no crossing bars that you know. Let me say this is what I think about this is had we begun the narrative with some semblance of ya'll ADI and truth, and based in some sort of fact, and then you can enter tain it. But when it starts means spun, and I'm not just talking about the president. I'm talking about before when it starts being spun, you know, in the basis isn't very clear in terms of what the mission is. And why did you have to question and say, well, I can't get behind any of this. Because the Genesis of it is it's not honest. And you know, we we we was at six years ago. I think had an honest conversation about a lot of that. And I didn't agree with all of it. But I didn't disagree with it. But it started in a more on his place. And I think that's an easy thing. Thank conversation while I mean, I'm just saying in, you know, in the house, generally when you're first barrels doesn't thirteen. Yeah. And I mean, I can take specifically as you know, speaker bottom carried a Bill that you know, he was good enough at the time to bring. Us it, you know, live on the border for legislators to kind of put our hand in in pile over certain things, and he was a metal to making some of those changes. And again, I didn't agree with all of it. But these tiny place that it was coming from. And it certainly didn't include some sort of, you know, dishonest cry about what was happening. You know, what was coming in the future? You know? Now, we see that. But I didn't come from that Bill, you know, and or from you know, speaker bottom, but that's what we're living now. And so you have to ask yourself how in the world, can you even get behind something like that when it's not coming from a place of sincerity honesty, and the answer is you can't you shouldn't. Who on the state level is pushing because look I'll give you. My take the house is always balked eventually gone with the Senate on a border funding. I'm what what the normally were putting up eight hundred million dollars who is spinning in your to listen from your point of view who is spinning on the state level. This narrative about the border, or I mean, I, you know, specifically, I think I heard the only one that already heard was the tenant governor that, you know, offer Texas to put up money to build this thing, which I mean, I'm not. I'm I'm not gonna quibble with the offer. I'm gonna quibble with the ludicrousness of actually making it. I mean, you know, what it is what it is. Well, I mean, effectively tin governor has in. I've listened to the comments that you're referring to Lieutenant governor said essentially, hey, we'll go and pay for it. And give you an you..

That will definitely need us to have better supplies to homes went up -solutely move towards electric vehicles vehicles will not become election.

Of individually to know, how vehicles are charging and how we using them on the -bility for the city to know, collectively what the victims in in the city are doing and how much power they using. When when it's billable means that there will be a lot more opportunity to do that to work out strategies for sharing power and keeping vehicles plugged in. So that we charge them at quiet times. And then lend the power back to the grid. Busy times. These are all -tunities. And this is something that's really been looked at now how intelligent vehicle can act as an intelligent power source as well. As just being charged from the grid statistics over the car is on average, the second most expensive asset the average family buys after the house, and it's the one they get the least use out of because it spends more than ninety percent of his time just punk doing absolutely nothing. So that would be a one way to meet your investment, go further, wouldn't it? But what about the roads we drive these calls on the city's we drive them around? Because at the moment, the infrastructure is all rigged up with the petrol engine in mind have people actually going away and started to look at the feasibility. Of wide scale mass adoption of these sorts of vehicles. Certainly again, some really interesting questions. I think one thing to save that truly autonomous vehicle without any toll is probably a long way in the future. Actually, what we're looking at now is increasing levels telling me, I'm not has benefits, of course. Because as we already started to see with things like adoptive breaking and up to cruise control, we can build better safety systems into the by taking some of the responsibility of the driver autonomy can help with that. We have to think about how they react to road signs and road markings moment that don't but people are now looking at systems where vehicles can read road signs and road markings. While argument is actually what need any of them. You can just program all the rules into the vacant and you won't need any road markings or anything like that. But of course, road markings and road signs and junctions and pelican crossings also used to cyclists and pedestrians not just vehicles. So they're likely to be with us for an awfully long time. And until we get to a set of golden future vehicles completely. Self-aware completely autonomous. There's a long way away. It's very much going to be about how we come to autonomy. And how we use the growing levels of autonomy in a city which one to mentally because of the other uses of the city won't change that much. Bit of a shame in some respects.

But we're going to chat with you next week while you're in Atlanta. Yeah. I can't wait for it. Looks like to you. Thank you, take care. Yeah. I mean, the the saints. They could have just blown that game wide open early. They up thirteen nothing and very easily could have been twenty one nothing in the Rams just kinda hung in there and fought back. Yeah. When you're playing good football teams, you have to put him away when you had the chance I think, that's what was so scary. But the AFC championship game two is that you saw -tunities the patriots tattoo perhaps put away the chiefs twenty one nothing at the half. Absolutely. It should at the very least been seventeen nothing at the half. At Tom Brady. Throws interception in the end zone, which is unusual for him. Said a couple miscues in the red zone this year, which are very rare for him. But that one you could have really had a chance to put them away curious for down call to run it with Rex Burkhead. So a couple of plays you can point to. But the patriots were able to overcome it on on the NFC side. The saints weren't able to overcome that. So I love that. You wanna talk about if he's the quarterback if it's the coaching that came into play there that ultimately flipped results for the patriots while saints aren't advancing to the Super Bowl. You know, that's up for discussion. But yeah, absolutely New Orleans had a chance to put away the Rams and they didn't. And then they without a doubt. The call was the no call was terrible saints in all likelihood have been here. But you're saying. They let the rafts have impact on the game by not executing down the stretch. And ultimately it ended up costing them a trip to the Super Bowl. Yup. Left too much time on the clock. The Rams tied it up and then wanted in overtime. You know, what team that hasn't been to the Super Bowl in longtime a real long time like fifty years the New York Jets they have not been planned for some guarantee while ago. Joe name it's guaranteed the Super Bowl fifty years ago. I was very very young. I don't even remember that. But the jets always send somebody to the Pro Bowl this time around it's Jamal Adams. Safety. They always send somebody to the bowl a lot of times they do. But not always they're pretty bad. So I'm not gonna look this is wouldn't furious me. I would like to go over the last. I the jets relax is called. It's called the segway. I heard you through a microphone at somebody. They made happen. Now. Let me sign that doesn't go to the Super Bowl hasn't gone in fifty years is the New York Jets. But this year they're sending Jamal Adams to the Pro Bowl and Jamal avenue decided the other day to tackle Pat, patriot the patriots mascot. I don't know. What he was doing at the Pro Bowl. I think every mascot go. Yeah. Mascot should not be just like the players. So you've got to the Super Bowl so Jamal Adams sees Pat patriot. We know the jets can't stay in the patriots like everyone else and he tackled him, and then the mascot, you know, the person inside the mascot suit had to go to the tent to just be checked out because you know, you got a two hundred twenty pound safety tackling a mascot. I don't know if the person in the mascot suit is your size of mice. Whatever it's not normally get tackled by an NFL player right by it doesn't happen. All the time. Well, Jamal Adams was alerted to that yesterday. And quite frankly has no regrets. They're not happy with.

"-tunities because usually they have large windows. So I really worked this way. I haven't yet an all five artists that I photographed as them or could you do this again, see I approach it couple the same way no away. It's funny because I haven't thought about it. But nothing is staged at all. I don't even want to move paintbrushes that are sitting in a pot. I have just working around them and dancing around them to get step over things. So I get really close. I get right over their shoulders. Like, I would because my cameras is quiet like I would on the streets. And so I think the streets gave me the skills to work this way and get the shots. I mean the shots then become. Come much more predictable because I have time to work more time than when I'm on the street. So, but there is a it's really the street that has given me those skills you walk into a space. What are the first things that you look for in? How does that lead you into your initial photographs of the scene in the subject? Well, then again, the spaces are so different some very romantic. You know, artists attorney as are very her soul much little personal touches. And so those are easier because they have a lot of little things that not related to their paintings. But just like, I one thing come to mind when I photograph Carl studio, the first thing that drew my attention, and it was snowing outside so was really nice. We had this really white backdrop through that big window and then the two little metal birds. I think that were made of metal cast-iron sitting on the the window sill or the. Radiator, and that's what caught my eye immediately. Because when you walk into the space of the window is at the end, and you see those two little silhouettes tiny sort of the birds, and that's exactly the first shot. I took and I played with those birds from different angles. And then from that I jumped to other things that were on the shelves same with Patricia space. They're a lot more windows, but she has like an old straw hat hanging on a hunk and things like that. And those are those details I love for graphing still life and detail said, and they tell so much about the person. So I usually start doing that. And then we chat a little bit. And then they they start working. So it just do whatever you doing. You know, the start working on were ever painting or anything they they're doing. And then then I I'm talking a lot when I'm shooting because we have a conversation. I learned a lot about their art and more the doing, and then I walked the space, and then I come near them. And I photographed. Them unless you pursue ability for some room light, you know, when they lean to put the brush back on their the board where they have their pain. And so then I stand there for a while because I know they're going to do that they're going to do that again and a few minutes. So it's really about the anticipation of what they going to do. So you you learn and then it usually photograph the space if I do the space from a wider perspective last I usually start with the details work with the artists more details. Just your and then and then the space sometime and I'm only shooting with one lens. The whole project has one lands black and white and camera black and white everything is done in camera. Very little cropping if any and thirty five millimeter on expo two which is outside my comfort zone. So I'm really pushing things because I am a twenty three millimeter shooter, which is thirty five and this because I. Needed a really fast lens. And I wanted to take my ex pro to out a little bit because it's it's kind of neglected. I put my fastest lens, which is the thirty five one point four 'cause some of those students are really dark to there's where it's really I don't care about the ISO. I let it go. You know, if it's going to sixty four hundred dollars to sixty four hundred and it's okay. It really is an exercise in limitations. Really when it comes down to it, so exciting, limitations only shoot horizontal frames? Novato goals? I almost did a square project. But I decided no I'm just going to do it just never use his vertical. Horizontal. So that there is consistency in the project, and I'm loving it. Th- really? So much fun to see you sort of focus the way you see in just one sort of limited area in terms of subject matter 'cause I look at your photographs all the time Instagram and the always love your work. But having he's so focused is really interesting to learn how you'd be an applying everything that you've learned in practice on the street to this of your images of Patricia the one I love the most is the one that's backlit. She's reaching back onto the the pallet where her paints are, and she sort of edged slit, and then, you know, those little figurines that are silhouetted against the window. And you see your painting on the left, and that that image is just so stunningly beautiful just call. The contrast gesture in all the elements in that shot tell you the story and all of those small little details are meant to be there. And then you have this other shot just the curtain hanging. Just. A radiator and the stains from water on the you have the obvious shots, of course, with her painting. But I think these are great examples of how much further photographer can take it if they really carefully observing and taking the time because you know, I could give someone into photographic painter. At all they would do is photograph photograph painting. There's so much to be had when you have the the luxury and the access, and you really are demonstrating that and these photographs, oh, and it sort sessile to you know, I think working on personal projects that it's the most important part. And not always thinking of all way, maybe that could be a book or maybe that could be this not I really don't care. Maybe it will be maybe. You know, maybe I'm going to have twenty artists by by the end of winter, the it's going I might. I can't wait to do the next one. I am going on a trip. So I have to wait a week. But I just loving this so much I could be out there every day and just to know that I have. You know, how it is in between workshops, then you stuck in your office. I'm doing like recording marathon this week recording for me regarding recording for others. And then I just itching took it out and and talk with people and and be on another workshop and so because it's my slower season just getting me out the door just with that goal. And I know that not only I will feed my creative soul. But I'm going to make friends, you know, and yesterday, I was just with my son. We went to we walking around downtown Saint Paul, and I walked into a flower shop, and I walked said I had never thought of it. But this is art, and I would really like to include a floral artists to in my series. So it's walked in. And I talked with a young man who was working in the space again is so beautiful. And I said, yeah, it's black and white and we're talking flowers, but it doesn't matter. It's not about. The art. It's about the artist m the space in so I explained to him. I showed him some pictures and said, yeah, that would be great come come anytime. We're busy at the end of the usually the vich week because we do a lot of composition for weddings, and such like, that's what's the best time to come and see us in action. So I have a violin maker lined up a musician. So trying to get a variety of different, you know, different mediums and men and women not just a kind of a mix of of different things, and I'm really having having fun and the work with Joshua also, very different. And it was really about raising a warrant awareness, obviously, same thing, you know, we had an exhibit the photographs were not even for sale it's really about raising awareness. We get finding sponsors to help us because obviously we not making any money doing this. But those are the project that are the closest to my heart. I without which I think it would just become a job. And you know, how much we hip. In
