"So, um, knowing the customer and understanding the customer's needs and trying to anticipate those needs. Has created enormous value for us as a business, but it also allows you to deliver a better experience, and that's ultimately what you're trying to do. And part of that is really understanding your target audience. And it appears as though your target audiences millennials. Is that correct? Yes. Millennial and Gen. X were, um We're about 35% millennial 35%, Gen X and the remainder as boomers, but you've got you definitely have a sea change in terms of the wine market and and the emerging demographics and generations that are consuming. So I think, um Uh, Gen X will eclipse baby Boomers in terms of wine consumption by 2021 by 2026 Millennials will eclipse both boomers and Gen X. So You've got a lot of change happening in the industry, which is really exciting for us, because we we believe that people are connecting that demographic. They're connecting with. With products are connecting with foods with restaurants with brands with anything in their life in a completely new way, and we think that is a combination of digital first and then experiences and and so that's what we focus on is how do we How do we connect with people digitally? Uh, with wine, You know, context is everything like I said, it's It's really diverse you've got you've got different languages on labels. If you go into a big wine stores like here if you're just looking at a wall of wine, So for us, the first thing is is putting wines that fit people's profile in front of them, and then it's creating context around that wine. Because you can really narrowly target people. Is that what you're alluding to? You really know specifically, maybe what their interests are their demographic and how this would fit into their lifestyle. Exactly. Wine is always a little subjective. So you never know, but we can be. We can be fairly targeted, but what we try to provide his context around what they're experiencing, so that could be Context around their own palette. So I've tasted this and it's a light body wine, and I'm learning to know that I like light bodied wines with oak, etcetera. It can be context around the origin of the wine, or where the winds from and we use every touch point. I think that I think you know, in a modern brand or for entrepreneurs. You want to use every touch point consistently, so that could be what we print on the outside of the box is it could be What we put inside the box is it could be what we're talking about on social media. It's our blog. Um, it's all of it's our email campaigns. It's all of these things, um, sort of working holistically override to provide a great experience. So you have a brand identity for one, and then I would imagine that you know, we eat and drink with our eyes. It's like how much is wine, a visual experience? It's very visual. I think if you look at sort of our labels and the With a bottle of wine. You only have so many. If you're not doing all the things I just talked about, you only have so many signals on the shelf that you could deliver. One of them is just visually like you know the color. The other one is just visually. What what's on the label? And so I think our our brands and our labels are various sort of contemporary and often we work with artists and designers from Across other categories, whether it's skateboarding or street heart or whatever. It may be, to sort of speak of visual language that's more modern and culturally relevant. Probably, and probably to be a little different, too, because I think a lot of times brands want to fit in their space, But it can be so much more powerful to actually stand out. Absolutely. Yeah, we take, uh you know, we take the opportunity that we have with our and I should talk a little bit about this, but we we really Average or the trust that we built with our direct consumer audience to create and build culturally relevant brand. So are things that we start direct to consumer and online. We validate and sort of optimize and build with our customer feedback, and then we actually take those offline and build those in the National Wholesale channel. So we're selling to restaurants and retailers. The summer water, for example, something we started digitally first and then as we grew awareness, and as we put that one on people's tables and got great feedback, we started to pull that wine. Out into other markets. Um, and so, yeah, the visual languages, Um, hugely important. I think we're always looking to leverage that trust that we have with the online customer to kind of push the boundaries of creativity and wine, and that could be a label or that could be a style of wine if we're making an orange line or a natural sparkling wine or something. Kind of stand out, and that's a responsibility and also an opportunity. And even the name of the wine. I mean, summer water. It's so catchy. I know that that gained some vier al itty for you, and so was that a strategic choice. Or was that a happy accident? Yeah, Some are strategic sense and some are happy accidents. I think we felt that, um This really captured sort of the essence of of Rose A, which is summer. Um, and the fact that it's light fresh, um and and a term that has been used to sort of describe The category. So, um, I think this one was strategic. There have been others that you know, maybe maybe a little happenstance and you just get lucky Business Rock stars. Staples Connect has everything you need for back to school and amazing prices.

"We're back on Friday, reacting to Game five of the Eastern Conference finals as the Bucks in the Hawks battle it out for the ever important 32 lead. We'll tell you who got the advantage Friday morning, Keyshawn J. Willens uber on ESPN radio. But it also seemed to me that the one thing that you took away of all the pieces of advice that you got. It was your father That left you with three different pieces of wisdom that impacted your life. And one of those was never quit because that gives you the perseverance state you need Another was work harder than the next guy. When and you're working when no one's watching, And the third one was never let anybody or anyone intimidate you. Do you think about those three things? Those three lessons that your father imparted to you? And how do they impact your life today? And and they have and always happened? I always remember. You know, the work hard part was it was I talked about in the book a little bit that you know when I was, you know, I was getting ready to go out and I can go down and go to the pool and play and he's telling me Well, you know, John is probably over there lift and I go down lift when I get back, because that's fine. You don't have to. I said no, I will not good. That's right. So he'll probably be. We'll be running while you're lifted, so it'll probably he'll get two workouts in but that's fine. We'll be fine for you. I'm going. I'm going to the pool. So I like God, I got down good steps. I go by the block ago I walked back. I go. I can't. I can't let him get to workouts. It's like I go. I'm going to lift and he goes whatever. And I said so. I went and left I go. I'm going to pull now he goes have fun. I'm not like Oh, so so you know, he kind of gets got, You know, he knew he knew how to say the right things, And he was great with numbers. Adam, and that's the one thing I never thought about, like he was an accountant. And he always had the number two pencils and everything so meticulously on his desk and I said, You know numbers and I was very good with numbers. I loved math, and I think how many anything that you can do for coaching? And being a teacher of math. I always had the ability to understand how much how much clock I can run if I take it down to three seconds, and if we run the ball three times, we can run off a minute 45 seconds And so a lot of the ability I had to close games at which I'm very proud of. That fact is My ability to look at the clock into the third quarter and realize how many series of left and that if we had a league time was our ally. And so I would shut down the passing game because I realized there's only so much time left and I can use up this much time and take away an extra possession from them. And we got the game one. Wow. Wow, Sister. Your dad always taught you the things that mattered and helped influence you later on, right? Yeah. Now, do you almost write this book? 10 years ago, did a version of this almost come out 10 years ago? And was it also with Michael Hollywood? How did that work? I have written a book 10 years ago, 2010 and it with another writer, but he come back with it. I just couldn't go through with it. It was all football. And and it was just when I was looking at thought about. I wrote this book and around the fall of 2010. 2010 is not was not a great mirror just lost. My father just lost my wife. I just moved to New York. And so I said, You know, I'm gonna write a book in case I forget, you know stories, But then, as I read it, I go. You know, this isn't just me because I wasn't just about football. And if I'm writing a book of just about football, it really doesn't reflect who I am as a person. And I said, You know, I need to be in a better place. And so I took the book bought the rights in the book, and I still have that book today and I never went to publish. Never got the print at all. I got the first version back at decides. Can't do this book and you know it was Because it was it was just there was it was this football stores and I just said, you know, there's just that's just not who I am. And and so here I am 10 years, 10 years later. You know, and I'm married again. Yeah, I've been having a TV for 10 years. Um and I sit here and all of a sudden I thought I walked away from the Hall of Fame. Career. I knew at the time when I finally did for short age of 49 stepping down and it was a good football team that's going to win more. But family was more important to me and all of a sudden, you know, here I am on that Saturday night in January, or, uh, I'm I'm getting a David Baker's Tell me I'm in the whole thing. It just It just was such an amazing time. And almost like not that I needed validation my football career but doesn't seem like putting an exclamation point on it. And then also in a pandemic kits. It just seemed like you know what the pandemic made us all start thinking about other things right? We all became very reflective during that time. Did we live a privileged life social justice issues coming up? And I thought, Wow, what a great time to Intermix family football, and the lessons learned through what Lens lights journey right And so and and so I just felt like man, There's there's so many things I can offer. I I didn't make the right choices. A lot of times I got to the fork in the road. I made some decisions. Sci fi. But this memoir Help somebody else who's going down That same path who reaches out fork in the road. I know Yogi bear all he says. Just take it, But I would just say, you know, Think about what you're doing, but don't look back. Look forward because you know you're going to take risk, and it's okay to take some risk. I always said I'd rather wear the risk and failed and never to have risked at all. We can live a very safe like if we choose to. So I share a lot of these lessons I learned because hopefully it can help somebody else Did Michael Holly get to see the first version of the book before he wrote this book, Okay? Because that's valuable information. I'm sure was helpful to him and putting it together to recall some of those things. But also I think about how much your life has changed in those 10 years. As you alluded to in 2010 was such a devastating personal year for you losing your dad first, then losing your wife that year and that that was that seemed like it was very trying ordeal as it would be, and then. Again in the 10 years since you get remarried, your daughters get married, and you now have five grandchildren. Do you stick? Do you stick your chin at them when you when, when you get mad at them and start getting their faces. Is there anything like that? No, no, but obviously they must see it because there's a couple of the grandkids. You'll see it one of the pictures in the book. It's got everybody in there. As for the kids are in the book ones in my daughter's tummy. It's just she's in the book to, um that's Ruth. But, uh, Lottum now has some the facial expressions that they're starting to come out. They get mad. You start to see him squint their eyes and do this and stick her tongue out when they're when they're trying to do something. So I I think I know where they're getting it from. So, uh, we'll see how long I been If their parents can correct them from that. How has being a grandfather altered your perspective on life? You know?.

"Tests your mother gave you to sharpen number two pencils to Hershey bars for energy. I had to go to Midwood High School right next to Brooklyn College and sit there and realize who would be very difficult to cheat on this. Although they didn't do it the old Jesuit way at Brooklyn Prep where they eventually shine their boots on my backside the judge woods and kicked me to the curb. They need separate. You like having space in front of you. Space behind you. Space the left space to your right. You are all crunched together, but I said, I don't know anybody in this. Midwood High School taking the s A. T s and a lot of the kids. The Jewish kids, you know, they were like harassed, you know, super academic say you see, like a pure old with somebody's shoulder. Oh, Anyway, It didn't work for me because when they kicked me out of Brooklyn prop, you didn't have to take regions. So they said, in order for you to go on to college. You're gonna have to get regions credits at cannot see high school local public school. Not too bad. Not too good. But when I went there was like no comparison to Brooklyn. Perhaps so after a few weeks of lollygag going around Studying subjects that I had back in like my freshman year of high school. I just walked out of class and everyone back somebody was like Eddie Murphy in the classroom, making jokes. You know, they teacher was having cardiac arrest. And that was it. I left. I never looked back. But anyway, let's go to Howard. He's calling from the Jersey your turn to be heard he had w A B. C. Howard. Good afternoon. Oh, way went to trade school. They won't know regions required. But when you went to college you had to pick on remedial classes again. Right. So you got a vocational high school diploma, right? Correct And what did you focus on carpentry, plumbing or electricity? Electrical, right, and I bet you were better off for it than a lot of your colleagues, right? I've never been laid off in 40 years. I'm telling you, I've been saying over and over, even to the advocates of charter schools that you have all the academic training in the world. But the job the job sector wants people with skilled abilities. That's what they want. And how would you are a prime example of that? Thank you. Very good, Vocational high school like Joey G. The Cheech from Howard Beach. You know where they went East New York High school. I had to run through a count gauntlet, I think was Bushwick happening. They've got off and ran through the going like battles blacks. Puerto Riggins. Italians, you know, but they all got a trade. Kept him out of sing sing. And fastening there. Possibly out of the electric chair. I'm sure prior to that, anyway, let's go to pull calling from middle village. You're trying to be heard here. Tubby, ABC, Paulie. Hey, Curtis. How you doing? Uh, I went to Bishop Lachlan back in the sixties and Ended up with the Regents diploma, but I failed. Biology. Regent Physics, Junior year chemistry sing here, But the highlight was when I rushed out of the biology region 60 to take it up to the polo grounds to see the best. Like Hank Aaron and the Atlanta Braves, But Hank Aaron had two home runs, so I feel the region but I saw him. Kyra hit two home runs in the hologram. Well, in fact, that was actually first game I ever went to Casey Single was the manager of the The hapless Mets was the Polo grounds. It wasn't Yankee Stadium even though I hated the Mets and Lou Brock was in Chicago Club and hit one like a mile a mile out before he was ever traded over there. The ST Louis Cardinals And then in 64 to watch my beloved Yankees lose in seven games. Ken Boyer, the N V P brother of Clete Boyer, third basement for the Cardinals. And now you know the rest of the story. After that, it was all downhill. All downhill. Let's go to Pete, who's calling from Long Island Your turn to be heard he had to be a B C p Curtis schoolteacher for Over 20 years, I have Ah, I am four standardized testing. However, this is not the year is any adult believes that kids should take the exams this year, they have no business and education. Kids have been in school at a school. There are kids that have been school all year. This is not the year for the region's exams. Question. Uh what, though? The dude you just socially promote the kids or the red shirt him and hold them all back a year. No, I don't think we should read sure them. I think they still have to pass the tests that the school gives. I have kids failing this year. And you know what? Curtis? I'm gonna fail him. They still have to do the work. Um, but they cannot be held accountable for the Regents exams. They're not prepping enough at home when they are not in school. Like my high school real quick. We have two days in school and two days virtual and one day nobody is in the building. It's just too chaotic. They can't do it this year Question. Have you eliminated the common core curricula in your school? Yes, we see. I teach it. The third largest school in Long Island, and common core is is kind of going by the wayside. Thank God I'll never forget. Never forget Carter was wrestling with some problems. He's going to junior high school today for like the first time. Because public schools in the city letting the junior high school kids back probably won't let the high school kids back until after Labor Day, But Never forget his mother set off. Why do you try to do the common core with him? And I looked at that people and I said to myself, what the hell is this? This makes no sense. Correct. No sense a little. And you're a teacher. And you're saying that a look, I got kicked out of high school. But I knew the basic elements a maths, You know, I'm not going to say I was her. Expert in Trig calculus. Mm. Algebra. I gotta go right through the lines. Statistics. Probability was always my favorite. Probability. If you keep going at this rate, Mike Lopez, is she gonna be looking for a new job? Can I give you probabilities? I asked you for the recommendation at the McDonald's. And you don't have to go to the wee Gee board and try to figure out the letters of the alphabet or the number 09. That's going to be a fact or fiction that Curtis ever consult the wee Gee board and the wee Gee board princesses who actually utilize that and little what we call it coffee klatches throughout the tri State area. Let's go to Mark Who's calling from Queens? Your turn to be heard he had w A B C mark. Doing, Curtis. I went to public school in Queens. My entire life. I remember back in the day we were required to take like three regions to get a diploma. Then we have something called advanced regions. The former that's like if you get if you passed five regions and the only reason why I opted in to take the advanced regions deployments because all my friends Getting and I didn't want to stand out. But I just want to add on to what the previous caller said that this is not the year for regions exam. Um we always have summer, right? You can always scheduled these exams in the summertime. Students still need to take the exams. Well, I mean, ever taken a regions exam. I don't think I can wait. I gotta recused myself a bit. But I will tell you this and following my daily horoscope is I do each and every day in the New York Post because that's why a lot of people buy the paper, especially the hard copy. It said I had to be nice to call us today. Basically, without calling your callers. You know, when you ask how you doing, if you notice I haven't cut you off having given you a bris haven't been like a memorial with a Rambo knife with a blindfold on while I was trying to extricate your Verbal foreskin is not easy being nice to people. I normally cut him off, and I tried to re educate them before taking them to a Uh, re education camp. But up next fact or fiction. Courteously whatever sit with the wee Gee board princesses. And try to determine my fate. With the numbers. I'm with the alphabet this Saturday at 10 A.m.. Larry Kudlow.

I have got different stages of my life from fifteen to now thirty. I've lots of different versions of me have walk through the store. So your mama's front door inspired. The song is pretty cool. I like to put songs up early. Because then i'm like i don't like that one when they put it out. I'm like i ain't going here that one but some of them like that one. I do like all right. what else. So what would you do if you in a coma during virus up and you had to learn all about the virus because people plan planned jokes on me. Sometimes i'll do the thing. Where i just close my eyes and i go. Kay i'm gonna open my eyes and thirty seconds and if i were describing this to myself two years ago what would i say i know. Reporters are in masks.

He not only didn't even know about the pandemic but he's having to experience it. Let's also not lose the real story here so the guy got hit by a car and then came out of a coma for a year and loved. You think you had a bad twenty twenty. Hey speaking of that. There was a woman who gave birth while in a coma and she was fighting covid and just recently met her baby for the first time so much happening there Did they do Guess they i saw that. Ford ford motor day are putting out a clear. In ninety five masks that can aid the hearing impaired which i think is a cool invention but also to. I think it's great for even teachers.

"So i wanna frame up this podcast with a couple of things so so one of the things that we're doing in this podcast frame up and i said podcast not just this podcast but our whole podcast is is to put on display okay so to speak where we're at to show what our life is like and how we feel about it what our feelings are sometimes in the past asked. We've dug into a lot of this shitty times right. <hes> and i just want to make this. This is a a an adjustment or a clarification that the focus is on you know where we're at right now however feeling and to show you to put our life as this is the journey we took took and we are taking currently and our continued to take yes and so i i'm i'm saying i don't wanna dwell as much in the past because more and more people who are coming to us. We've really expanded our counseling and coaching. It's been really fun. Exciting a lot of people i've noticed one dwell on the past about how shitty their life is and how their shitty their life has been <hes> and one of the first things i do is reorient you towards the possibilities in to the paradise to the future and because there's these negative thought loops that get people get on and they seem to dwell in them seem to do well i used to do that. I used to run rails in my head so lewis shitty past gives you permission to have shitty present which would indicate that you actually don't want a good president if you want to dwell on the past and and create shitty president yeah so i'm interested in illuminating this state of light and joy and then giving people hope to get there and show them how to if they want to come to counseling coaching events or just listen to the podcast yup i got a frown in there was a general all around yeah. That's what i have to deal with so my pleasant place where i am right now is i'm feeling pretty down. 'cause my girlfriend girlfriend frowned at me. She's my wife anyway. How are you feeling so. Let's start right there jenny. How are you feeling right now. Where are you at. Where am i well. Philip k feeling a little stressed while stress because we we have our marriage and <unk> shades of intimacy coming up next weekend september sixth seventh and eighth so just doing a lot of prep mentally physically xactly energetically for that event which is both a incredibly exciting. I'm like this morning. I woke up. I just my eyes popped open open and i was excited and then you go through the waves of holy shit. There's so much to do and then pop back out and you get really excited again and then you're like. I've got this great idea. Pop back out and you're like oh my god so i think people can relate right. I mean this is where we're at and navigated to it now. Now i will briefly talk about the past for second in our past. We would usually be pretty turbulent right all right so we've worked really hard to be where we are now. Where mildly mildly turbulence is way okay better than where we're at right. I think people can relate to win. You kinda have regular meltdown so speak right yeah right. I my mom anytime she would have visitors coming to clean the house. She is coming to clean the hell out of visitors coming to visit she would i would start with the oh i need to clean and then it would just turn into we'll just turn into a meltdown right pattern. There's always and tencent a mirror so think about. I think people can relate to some event out there and as it comes up they start to go into meltdown mode. It's pretty typical. But what if we just go into feeling good and so that's what we're doing this. We're just feeling really good <hes> and from that good we're still doing all the shit we need to do to get better right that interesting difference big difference like we could clean the house in a panic feeling like we're just fucking losing it and fuck this. We should cancel the event. We're gonna just die. Clean clean clean or hey. I'm so excited right. I'm cleaning now. That's a nuclear bomb of information. I just dropped on eugenie there. The world go big difference. It's possible to do it differently. Yeah okay frame set intimate with iron bars. <hes> okay so today we've had. We did three days in a row. Let's talk about one of the experiences that we had that. We've done three days in a row. We've gone for our morning walks yeah or not. Some morning walks on some of the day's yesterday. It was the mid day. Burn me out destroy. My gimme heatstroke day was still was a great walk. Walk yep so talk about walks okay. You've been telling me that they're like you rose every day yeah no. They're awesome. I mean they're a long stretch of time to get the body moving and the mind moving and we do a lot of idea generating and they're just awesome just the connecting bodily with movement bodily with movement okay yeah well yeah i mean it's like it's opposed to sitting across from each other talking. We're walk walk at the same time and there's something that adds to it that we're walking that the body is moving the piece. I want to talk about so today. We had a fantastic experience. Just fantastic and we're going to talk about it. <hes> i loved this experience. Do you want to tell the story sure so we were walking along. There's obviously walking past a bunch of houses in our neighborhood and all of a sudden. We hear this little little boy voice little a little boy voice ringing out with this song. I don't even know what the hell the song was. It's no discernible song but he's just singing any. I can see his sister up near the front door and his brother was over in the in the driveway and really all. I can't locate it. I can see the two other kids and i can't really locate this other. We're this voice disembodied voice coming from and i mean he's loud. He's he's just seeing it out and i'm looking and those i see the sign like a for sale sign. These two little fee. I'm like i found and it and it was just so cute. I mean just his little lungs were full and he was belting out. Whatever the hell is what it was horrible and because we can really see him he couldn't see us and so we're walking along and we we we walk around the edge of the of the sign where he can see us and all of a sudden his just joyous he is belted out song trails off into this little embarrassed and gets quieter in it was funny just drill down and i thought i had a funny line. This isn't really funny but i thought i said something mike mike and thus the boy learned shame i mean that's what ed it became. He became embarrassed. I mean that's what it seemed right and so his this amazing joyous moment for him just trailed off into this little diminish embarrassed embarrassed to nothingness it did and it was it was exuberant excitement and we both picked up on it <hes> we were. We were looking at each other and going. I mean this. This kid is howling a song like kosong berg and there were no words it was just a howl of delight and emotion and just like a bird talking the talk talk talk knock you know and and we walked around and i and he looked up and he looked up at me and just a trail and i waved thome and i wanted to give him the biggest smile i could yeah because i loved what he was doing right but interestingly enough something happened right yeah something happened and he become self conscious and he felt on some level something wrong with his song <hes> and that he must must be quiet. <hes> an embarrassment you could see the layers shit just piling onto on right at that moment right and i don't know maybe where the source of back those layers came from but it wasn't us right like like clean moment we utterly appreciated him singing and utterly utterly appreciated him trailing off right just gave him unconditional love <hes> yeah he's got the biggest small it's usually she's frowning at amoebae this time. It isn't that true actually not true get defensive. Let's talk about this. I anyway so yeah great experience. What did you get from that well. I mean i think i got what we just kind of walked through is how you know we we have these moments of exuberance and then stories stories or whatever creep in and it diminishes it but it also gave me a very powerful moment of seeing seeing being that i want the opposite and that i want the opposite for other people in that moment. It made me sad that he trailed trailed off that his song diminished to a low hum it made me sad and so what that provided aided me was insight into. I want the opposite. I want little kids who how their songs and don't stop because people walk by but i also want the same for myself you know this. This child was a perfect little microcosm of what we we do day in day out to ourselves you ourselves. Do you remember me talking about the pencil rocket story about his in this interesting. I was just telling you about oh my eighth grade or sixth grade pencil rocket story <unk>. I just remember putting these two things together about a night or two ago. I was telling jenny that when i was a kid i had an active imagination <hes> just a really active imagination and one day i was. I think i was in eighth grade but it could be sixth grade. I was in mr norm colours history class the guy who made us memorize and speak in front of everybody the gettysburg address little factual for you that just came up from the depths of my brain and i had two pencils and it occurred to me in like a study period moment or something that they looked a lot like spaceships because they were pointed at the front and the erasers looked like the fire coming out the end of a spaceship and so i began to fly them around course right shaw show. I'm like this is about a lot of all in their chasing each other shooting each other and was having the most it's amazing time right just absolutely amazing time and i had a friend who really looking out for me looking after he was and he's all like comes up to do. You just got stopped. That look like a moron. You look like an idiot. You look like you're you're. You're embarrassing. You'll never get a girl. I remember that line and i was just like it was interesting because i'm sure i'm sure sure any girl in the eighth grade considering dancing or dating me at that time was probably surely put off by by the pencil the intense world i was in my own world right like like this kid was in his own world yeah completely yeah oh yeah and here's the thing by the sound of his song. We knew he was in a beautiful world. Yeah he was in the best world ever and i was having the best ruled ever with my rocket ships and my friend was like i gotta help you here. You're embarrassing yourself. You look you're just not hear back to less optimal world where you should worry about shit like this yeah. That's your thing and and i'll i'll say i can piece some things out of it. <hes> that are useful like present present be aware of how your behavior affects others. If in this moment you really don't give a shit. He just being you and bill. It's also aware of was like okay. That girl cute one three rows back. She's not going to date me anymore but that's okay. I'm okay with that something like that but and presence but i was in such and so i remember i remember this feeling feeling about <hes> i remember feeling bad and li literally came back to a less optimal world world. You were enjoy. I mean i'm not talking about the fact that you were in like a world with little pencils patients like you're in joy. You were you're creating. You're imaginative. You were having fun and you came back to a less optimal world where you were feeling pulling bad. You were feeling stress. You were feeling embarrassed and all those worlds are inside you. I mean but you came came back to a less optimal jason. No i think i can blame my friend for all those things. Oh okay yeah that feels better yeah. No it all was in with.

The declaration was intended as a way to highlight crops that were unknown if forgotten at least to the wider world as a way of promoting food security, but along with Kim was rabbit sense to the top of the health food chain came news reports that local populations in Peru and Bolivia could no longer afford to buy it as the prices had doubled or tripled.

He said in most cases, we find that rising Kenwa prices have modestly increased to the welfare of both Kimba producers and can what consumers in Peru at worst. We find a small decline in welfare in some region. Wins. But that decline is almost nil at less than one percent of total welfare welfare here is defined as the value of a household consumption expenditures, Bella explained since consumption tends to be function of income consumption is a good proxy for income. But it's not necessarily all good news. There are a couple of concerns that could still affect the people who originally grew Kenwa Bella. Mir said the first is that once the price of kin wall fell back down to its pre twenty ten level many, small producers told us they were holding onto their grain in the hope that the price would spike back up. But this is highly unlikely to happen considering that with the want price spike in two thousand thirteen many new producers got into the Kenwa production game which lowered the price a probably permanently. Unless there's a new spike in the international demand of kin wa. The other problem is an issue of maintaining bio-diversity very few varieties of kin while are exported to places like the US and UK especially compared with these some hundred varieties grown in Peru. And so if it's most worthwhile for producers to grow for export markets. Those other local varieties might disappear forever. This phenomenon isn't good for the longstanding health of crops, and it's not a new problem take the banana when I say banana, you probably think of a very particular variety of the fruit, but someone greatly enlarged in gently bent a yellow number two pencil. That's a cabin dish banana, and it's the only one many of us encounter outside of the tropics its popularity elbowed out other varieties and farmers came to rely on it as a staple export. Which sounds great a right up until a fungus that affects only that variety swept in and started destroying crops. If you haven't heard scientists are now racing to figure out a way to save it, and that's the danger of monocultures, the Irish potato blight is another example. That's why organizations like bio-diversity international have piloted programs to give native farmers incentives to grow the less in demand varieties of kin wa so Wilkin will ever wear out. Its welcome it. Sure doesn't look that way. Where it used to be limited to health food stores and vegan rest.

"Iphone ten s iphone ten s max iphone ten are the are stands for something. The new macbook Air New ipod pros apple number two pencil as our friend. Adam Christians and says the new MAC mini. I may be forgetting a couple of things, but it's been a pretty big season for new apple hardware. So I guess where I want to start is. Is there any one thing on that list that excites you does the list as a group excite you or does? None of it. Excite you at all. I think it all excites me Kennedy. It doesn't mean it's not doesn't mean. It's all for me. But it excites me. I mean, the new the new iphones are yet. Another iteration of an already. The product the macbook air, we can talk a lot about you know, whether there should have been refreshed before. But it's refreshed now. That's the point. And it seems to be a surprisingly capable device. The new ipad pros. Yeah. Same thing. An irritation with some improvements. We definitely expected in a few surprises there, and the many I mean we've been waiting for many for a long time. So I think it's a very exciting lineup that you know, some of it may have been overdue. But again, the point sort of is that it's here. Now when you say things like we've been waiting for a mini for a while. Are you speaking like as an apple community? There are some people who have been some people who haven't have you personally been waiting for a new MAC mini. Did you buy one because we'll get to that? But I mean, I mean when when you say we've been waiting for this. And now here it is we're we waiting for it were you waiting for it. Or was it just a, you know, if they're gonna keep one of those on the shelf, they should really dust it off. And maybe, you know, give it a new breadth or something. I think there are a lot of people that were waiting for it. I think that some of the there were devices I use excuse me different things that I used to use my old MAC mini four that I've since transition to other max, so I might have used it a little more in the interim, but having to rethink some of those things now based on the fact that now I have this. This new MAC can run headless. That is a lot more affordable than buying a full-sized. I'm back with you know, the screen because that way you don't have to pay for the screen and obvious things like media servers are just service in general, but does different kinds interfaces storage devices. I mean, there's so many there's so many things that a headless MAC mini, excuse me, a headless MAC, meaning the back many can be used for that. I I think it's an extremely potentially extremely versatile device. And I think has got will generate a lot of interest. Maybe it may not be the switch of. Sheen that once was more. Maybe it is. I mean, that's that's not for me to say because I don't know what a window switcher needs or wants right now. But it it it certainly could be used for that.

This is like a this is like an upscale Ivy league school with this stuff supposedly was happening. I don't know if if the client that he has is a high school. Friend of cavenaugh or acquaintance or student or a college student. I don't know. But I guess we'll have to wait and. There's another a person that's coming forward. Mark judge who was one of the guys who was Kavanagh's like wing man or something. He was the guy that this Christine Ford is Dr Christine for the first accuser came forward said that Mark judge was in the room with Kavanagh when he jumped on top of her and tried to force himself on her and polar Davis above and that Mark judge jumped on the two of them started laughing. Well, Mark churches will talk about any of this stuff. He's been question. They want to interview there's one anything to do with it. Well, he's got an ex girlfriend. Who says that he told her about this stuff that he told her about Georgetown prep? He's high school classmates having sex with drunken women. So now, you've got an ex girlfriend of smart judge coming forward saying, yeah, he told me about this. He told me they would they would get these girls drunk or drug them. And they would have these these these gang bangs with these with these girls. First of all, what would you say that twin ex-girlfriend, so they are they gonna talk to the expert Amish? She got she got sour grapes. Well, here's the thing that why would anybody who doesn't want to have the spotlight on them be involved in these situations? Why would they come forward? And put themselves in jeopardy their family their job. Once you know, you end up on social media now this woman's had death threats. She's had to move out of her house, Dr Christine moves the three million dollars doing it for the money. It's well, it's you know, it's a it's a political thing will not become a political thing.

"So got a number to add in a number two pencil in me, of course. So limi- went to a shopping mall in a in a city we hadn't been to before and we were looking for something in that mall specifically. There was something that we forgot. So what did we do? We went to the. The big directory and the big directory was nothing, but a bucket full of printed maps. Right? So we looked at that Nissim fate. They didn't even have a big view. They had just a little tiny view that you really couldn't say. I'm five foot one. I couldn't see the stupid thing. It was way over my head, but I pulled the piece of paper out as were walking along. I, I said, well, I'm using a printed map. How interesting is that? And then I looked at the map carefully and I realized there were coupons on the map. There were, you know, special offers. If you picked up the map, please bring this coupon into the store and we'll give you twenty five percent off of taking advantage of. So I there are times when I do pick up the piece of paper and I prefer that piece of paper will tell you that I recently had fun putting together a piece of idea, right? And and that they have not my favorite thing to do, but I actually find their printed in struck. Actions easier to follow them. The video ones they have up on YouTube. We were putting together a hose reel cart, and it was the same thing. If if you've got a good piece of print that's well designed and well laid out very often, it's more intelligible than say a an attempt to show you via video how to put something together. So I still a fan, I think for me it, it's it's a positional thing in terms of print like, so you know, instructional things a map, you know, those are things that are in print, but I don't think it leads the way like we used to think of print leading the way in the way that we communicate. I think guess what I'm getting at. Yeah, and I agree with that and when and when folks say it will print his growing in Molyneux's love print. I, I really wanna see the stats on that or are we just talking about things that sort of follow in other words maps? And so we, we've got none. Right. So so there there are a number of working stations that that track. The volume of printed paper in. So a lot of the paper manufacturers and they're working stations, do keep wanting teleconference is also fracking these things. I think one of the things that we see is that you have to the first thing have to settle on a definition of what print is to decide whether it's growing or not. Because if he all the box around transactional print, it is clearly a flat in in many places. It's declining. In some segments. It is actually slightly growing in some segments, but in an aggregate. I mean, you'd call it slashing what's segment of print is growing so that there are so Drake, no marketing charitable solicitation. Higher education solicitation, higher education, customer care of an awful lot of that is done in print. A lot of university whose print is their primary communication to the parents and students who come. Because they find a receptive than trying to send an Email. Certainly. I mean, just totally make sense to do it. Otherwise would be almost silly. If you think about the number of private universities as well as public universities. I mean, they're practically on every street corner so that that's a lot of print that's being produced that that didn't use to be produced because the number of universities is greater today than it was ten years ago. So you sort of, you know, if it multiplies the effect out. So there's a lot of print there that that didn't used to be their churches of all denominations have gotten very smart about printed communications to their to their persons. They on a date, they understand that sending an Email newsletter does not have the same effect is sending a printed newsletter through the mail or a flier at the end of the aisle a after service.
