She encourages doctors and patients to take a broad view and to maintain regular healthcare check ups that can allow for early detection. Ah, cute. Covert patients tend to be older and more frail. Some other research shows that perhaps people with the long term symptoms might actually be overrepresented.

Addressing the Digital Gap During the Pandemic

"Either this is alan shark and welcome to another episode of shark bites. This is the first episode in the year. Twenty twenty one so hopefully you had a happy new year and looking forward to a much better year than perhaps we had last year. As you know the podcast delves into europe. Cio's and other tech leaders throughout local government to some extent state government and today. We are very fortunate. Have john walton. John is a chief information officer of the county of san mateo california. I've known him for over a decade and he is getting all these awards and whatnot and it seemed like this is an appropriate time to really have a chat into sheer the discussion with you. John brings over twenty five years of experience in the fields of information. Technology has a diverse background in both public and private sectors sending innovative technology standards providing visionary leadership for numerous organizations each receive tons of awards and most recently state tech recognized him as one of the thirty people to watch in the year. Twenty twenty twenty-eight came out towards the year so hopefully it'll make the list again in twenty twenty one but he sent a lot of things that hopefully we'll get into that for example. I believe he'd been on school board. You have been a race car driver so you have a lot of interest so john. Welcome thank you on. It's great to be here. I really enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you. Ve enjoyed our friendship and partnership over the years and really excited for twenty twenty one. Yeah it's got to be better than last year. Such such an anomaly. Such a different year. It can only get better so john. I always ask when we begin these discussions. I always believe that. Very few of us wake up in high school or even college and say when i grow up and when i go into the adult workforce i want to be a chief information officer so i'm always curious to know. How did you get to where you are. You've had a really great career and is far from over so if you would you've had an interesting journey so let's spend a couple of minutes talking about. How did you get to the county san mateo allen. Yeah that's That's a great question and probably the most complex question. You're going to ask me today. So i will. I will try to keep it to a couple of minutes. It was a long winding road to end up. Were ended up i. I grew up in. A family of there was a military family. My dad was missile defense and so we moved a lot as you can imagine and my dad used to like to say we lived in places where people didn't care where he blew things up so those rather rural and isolated and i wasn't into computers at all matter of fact i'm of an age where computers were still a relatively new thing so my exposure to computers were really through. My dad was a bit of what we call order now. Every time they would demo out a test site he He felt terrible about all the expensive computer equipment that was getting thrown away. Pdp lebanon's and things like that so he would haul them home in his pickup truck. And i grew up with garage. Full of old mainframe computers wang's ibm's and so those were my toys. My friends growing up but to be honest they didn't really interest me I really love nature and so When i teach classes at san francisco state and things like that mba students. I always tell them to become a cio. The first thing you do is you go to humboldt state university and get a degree in natural resource science. because that's where every good cio starts with a degree in natural resources. And and that's really how i got started i. I really wanted to be a researcher. A scientist i wanted to study nature and the environment and at that time The college was implementing backs computer systems. That was a new thing and it turned out that i wasn't really great at school. I i guess you would probably call it. Add now. but i don't do well sitting in classes listening but turns out a really good at setting up. Faxes for all the computer. Labs all the professors would give me extra credit to make up for my poor test scores by going in and configuring all the computers in the labs and so that would really help. My career started i. I did get a bachelor's degree in science. I enjoyed that but immediately after college. I started setting up. Computer systems. for counties and cities and private industry and it just went from there and in those days. It was really what you did. You just sort of went from project to project and it was word of mouth and if you knew anything about computers that kind of puts you a leg up on the competition so while up here i am now i must cio the great county here in california You know appreciative of all the recognition. Our county gets think it's really a reflection to the hard work. The staff here does and the leadership of the county the supervisors in the city manager. I think i am probably the best easiest. Cio job in california. They they make things very easy for me. I met one of your deputies at a recent meeting in there. You do have a very talented staff so tell us. I did read somewhere about this racing car thing so tell me a little bit about that. Well yes so. That's like. I said the the technology thing wasn't really a passion of mind when i was young and my dad is a hobby was an amateur stockcar razor so i grew up around tracks and engineers. It turns out you know. He was an engineer. Engineers love to build things and so he looked to build cars and fix cars so i grew up working on cars and building cars and race cars and have always been around those. And so that's always been my hobby. As a matter of fact the mechanic paid my way through college. Because i had an aptitude for that. And it's really just built from there. I think from my childhood you know as a as an executive technology really. I spend most of my time. Unfortunately you know in meetings in office buildings working on spreadsheets. Power plants you know. It's not as glamorous as probably some people think it is to be a cio for me at least and kind of tactile this rule I built my own race cars. I tune them my drive them on the track. It's really release for me. And all the things i do probably things. It helps me too many of us in this world. Nowadays we all try to multitask too much when meetings and checking email and texting. And i will say if you ever need to focus. There's nothing like being racetrack. One hundred thirty miles an hour going into a turn to cause you to focus and not worry about. Who's texting you calling you on the phone. So i still love it. I've sold most of my cars now. I have to left. And i still do it when i have the time. But it's it's less and less these days. Covert has kept us very busy. And i have two young sons that i try to spend as much time with is like can so until they get interested in racing than i probably won't spend as much time at the track is i have in the past

Zach Seward started Quartz, sold it, and bought it back. Now what?

"Person you hear laughing at my expense is zach. Seward who is the ceo. Of course welcomes. Peter always happy to laugh at your expense. Yeah no it's as you should. I was rude to you when you were an internet forbes so you definitely deserve the last laugh. There's a long history of courts it starts in two thousand twelve when it was Atlantic media created it. You're the co founder. There it was then sold to use a base twenty eighteen into japanese media company. Most folks here have never heard of and you are now the ceo and owner of the publication. Again it's a long history but let's let's do the recent history i this fall. You announced that you have bought the publication back from its last owner. But you're not gonna be the owner yourself right. You're trying to get investors to sort of stand up. The publication was katherine del courts editor. In chief at i conducted a management buyout. gender bought bought the company from From us days so we chair ownership Majority owner and now we're also going out and seeking additional investment from from others. They will will have a number of owners after complete that fundraising around so you're in the midst of fundraising as we're speaking. What is your pitch to an investor in in thousand twenty for funding courts. There's a lot of skepticism and negatively about about media an online media in general You've got a publication that it had a bunch of interest at be getting sold for a decent amount of in two thousand eighteen. You've got an owner you. You're the last owners. I don't want publication anymore. What are you telling investors today about future. In in eight years we built something rare in digital media which is a strong new brand with a dedicated loyal audience of following our coverage of global business news and have a built both a great advertising and nat in the last two years great subscription business on top of that brand loyalty and serially clear path to making it a sustainable business going forward so his court's gonna be an i think answered it but the idea of the courts is courts started off as an ad based business when us based bottom. It said we'd like to make this a subscription business. You guys went ahead and started doing that Lots of people are trying to figure out how to sell. Subscriptions online Will descriptions be sort of the dominant revenue source for you guys in your in the future. You're imagining yes. But i should be clear. I think that future. When subscription revenue equals the is as big as our advertising revenue is still many years often five or more years off but but sure you know over the long run with we wanna have a really healthy distribution of revenue streams across advertising against and even within those two categories. There's already quite a few different revenue lines that we've we've got going to expand over the next five years so again before we go back to the beginning. Of course let's go back twenty eighteen twenty nineteen and twenty twenty userbase botchy. They said we want to make this a subscription business. You guys went ahead and did that. A lot of people are trying to do that. what didn't happen for you Over the last couple of years why did use base decided where. We can't make a go. This will i. What did happen as you just said it is. It is accelerating courses moved into reader revenue at the launch of our membership program. We were always planning to go into subscription but the acquisition definitely accelerated those plans. I think the deal with us based closed on august first twenty eighteen and launched the membership them two months later and i think that's the best biggest takeaway from the last two years. A glad that happened. I wish it happened. Two years prior because it really helps strengthen the the business that we have now but what didn't happen i mean i guess it. In short userbase was hoping to recreate the model that had been successful for it in japan. Got a his aggregation app in In japan called news picks the tried to apply pretty much the exact same model to courts in terms the product experience and trying to create a community of of our readers that in the end that was pretty forced. A strategy didn't work as well as as they had hoped And then along came this pandemic and that challenged our advertising business this year and then ultimately challenged us bases ability to be in this for the long haul that prompted them to start looking for alternatives. And at what point did you raise your hand and say actually i'll buy this thing and all find investors was that was that always something you thought you might do or was it. After they had tried to find another home for it and couldn't it's sort of in the middle of that process. Sit some point this summer as we started planning for. Twenty twenty one. It became clear that wasn't going to put up the kind of investment that we felt was necessary to carry the business forward that prompted an emanate process to look for so called strategic alternatives but air quotes There was there was interest from a number of parties. And somewhere in the middle there catherine. I raised their hand. And that s that the userbase consider us as one of the suitors as well. Obviously that that's what happened. It's funny to talk about risk in two thousand twenty right. It's pretty loaded word. But i'm assuming it would be less risky for you. If a strategic buyer had bought at bought courts from us bases that have used her to sticking your neck out and saying all right. i'm gonna. i'm gonna figure out how to finance this thing myself. What what is the decision process for you. Sort of mr mrs multiple days and nights of thinking. Do i really want to do this. her easier way easier things to do in life than to buy back a publication in twenty twenty you sort of walk me through your mindset. Sure yeah i certainly agree with less risky personally to for to find some other buyer for courts and so yeah i assure catherine did something similar had to go through. A process of our web put nearly a decade into into the so far my ready to do another decade. How much believe in this brand and our ability to to make the business model working the i wanted to be real with myself because have to turn around and be real are pleased in our forthcoming investors. Obviously you know after all probably had a week to do all of that introspection. After that week long introspection can him with yeses. All those all those answers I love court said. I believe really deeply what we're trying to do here

Protecting Each Other

"Welcome to the thick. This is a podcast about politics. Race and culture from a poc perspective. I might gain a wholesome and today. We have a special guest to close out our year. Joining us from my. Gosh i love michigan. Love ann arbor. Dr abdul el-sayed. He's a physician epidemiologist. He's author of the book healing politics and all round fabulous human beings. So welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited to be here. I feel like. I'm sitting in the computer version of my grandmother. Salonen alexandria so that's the vibe. I'm going for right here. oh. I love it. That was like perfect respect okay. What is grandma serving. What are we drinking. Tea or coffee or it'd probably be minty. Yes okay awesome. It'd probably be a selection of different cakes that you picked up from the local bakery. And i would always. I'm not a big drinker. And i didn't really discover coffee until after my grandmother had passed so i would always have raw cane juice that you can get freshly squeezed down the street as ought always pick it up and they'd serve it in this little baggie so it wasn't like it was like a bag you with a straw. That's the field we're going for here. We got it right. I'm so there of course. We are recording this in early december. So just take a note on that listeners. You know things might have changed in the news cycle where assuming that democracy will still have survived. But that's just a no for you. So abdul public health expert the former health commissioner for the city of detroit we are going into a winter. That cdc director. Dr robert redfield has worn. The reality is december. January and february are going to be rough times. I actually believe they're going to be the most difficult. I'm in the public health history of this nation. I'm a survivor. I'm public about that. So i have all kinds of feelings about this because at this point now. Early december win. We're recording this. Two hundred seventy six thousand people more than that have been killed by covid. Nineteen the coronavirus has exposed so many tributes in terms of structural poverty. Racism power black and latino working class communities you know have been devastated and yet also been in this country functioning in your book you write quote one of the abiding truisms in epidemiology is that the poor will always suffer more and worse. Yeah so we're clearly seeing this. A lot of us are thinking about the vaccine and what the vaccine looks like when we're thinking of the context of structural inequality and racism. So give us your sense. A lot of people are like okay with there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Yes but i'm more circumspect. We're still in this for the long haul. But i don't know you tell me. How should we be feeling about what's happening right now while i'll tell you this we didn't have to be here. And when we think about an epidemic and what creates an epidemic. I want folks to understand that while a virus is naturally and there's very little you can do to stop the epidemic or the pandemic that follows is a function of the choices we as a society make both before that virus emerges while virus is spreading and after that virus has taken its toll and right now. I'm feeling some kind of way about the choices that we have made the choices and that we are making. And i am optimistic about the potential for a vaccine and what a vaccine could do to halt the near exponential spread of this virus. But at the same time. Right when i look at all that has come before it. And the fact that we could not as a society invest in any sort of collective action right to bring down this virus. We could not come together. We could not see each other as worthy of our protection by doing something as simple as wearing a mask. We could not invest in the means of public health. I'm really quite worried. And i'm really frustrated. And so this virus. I think tells us something about ourselves as a society and what we need to do to be able to truly and deeply empower low income people and people of color and rough and do so in a way that brings us together around stopping the next one because if we don't there's nothing stopping another virus from emerging another pandemic from happening. I mean we think this is sort of a once every century thing. But that's just not how it works. There is literally no reason why any viruses out there like look you know. Corona virus came this year. So we'll wait a century until the next one emerges right and we've got to get some things right before serious about protecting folks

The Sodder Family Tragedy: 75 Years Later

"Long before his house burned down any lost five of his children. George solder saw the united states as a land of opportunity or at least of escape he was born as georgios saw do on the italian island of sardinia in eighteen ninety five. He spent the first thirteen years of his life. They're growing up in a small town on a hill. Not much is known about his youth mainly because he refused to speak about it. It was obvious to those who knew him. Later that something happened in italy that made young giorgio want to leave in one thousand nine hundred eight. He sees the chance to escape his home. Country in boarded a steamship with his older brother headed to ellis island Because we don't know his brother's name will call him. Rafael georgia was thirteen years old when he and rafael saw the statue of liberty and new york city skyline for the first time but whatever excitement. The new land may have inspired in giorgio. His brother didn't seem to share it for reasons. Unknown rafael return to italy immediately after delivering his younger brother to the immigrant inspection station. Perhaps he was only tasked with delivering giorgio safely to america. Maybe he was just along for the ride. It could have been any number of reasons he could have been turned away from. Ellis island for criminality or disease. Regardless when thirteen year old giorgio emerged from ellis island. He had a new anglicized name. George solder he was alone in a brand new country for better and for worse. His new life in america began that day in nineteen eight and he quickly got to work. George didn't stay in new york state for very long instead. He headed west to pennsylvania in order to find opportunities there and find them he did. It took a few years but before long. He left a railroad job in pennsylvania for west virginia and worked his way up through the hauling industry to open his own trucking company. But that wasn't all he wanted out of life in the early nineteen twenties. George met jenny. Cheaper yanni jenny. Like george was also an italian immigrant but unlike him she moved to the united states when she was just three and couldn't remember much of her life in italy. It didn't matter though the two had plenty in common and hit it off right away. They fell in love and soon enough. They got married ready to start a family. They moved to nearby fayetteville west virginia. Their new town was nestled in the foothills of the appalachian mountains and was home to a small but tight knit community of other italian immigrants. Over the next twenty years they became respected members of the fayetteville community their neighbors view george as a successful local businessman and jenny was known as carrying housewife who adored her ten children but a mystery lingered at the heart of this solder family and it involves georgia's past or rather the lack of it. Everyone and their italian american community new. The georgia emigrated to the states. Just like many of them. Andy may have had his secrets but he certainly wasn't shy about his political opinions during the nineteen twenties and thirties. Italy's fascist prime minister benito. Mussolini expanded his power and allied with the nazis in world war. Two during this time. George made it known that he despised the dictator. He sometimes got into passionate arguments with other italians who supported mussolini and reportedly expressed relief when he heard the dictator had been killed in the spring of nineteen forty-five but even still george was reticent to talk about his past however it seemed the community. Opt to let these quirks go. They were fond of the families. Many children the solders had ten kids. Understandably they ranged quite a bit in age. By nineteen forty-five their oldest. John was twenty three years old. While the youngest sylvia was to the family was large an by all accounts. Happy and christmas eve. Nineteen forty five was no exception.

"Everyone on. Your sports illustrated tennis. Podcasts are last ten of being ear. Jbl joining me. We already dispensed awards handed out Various honors we toasted these six players. Who won majors in two thousand twenty in this crazy year. We have good farewell to the bryan brothers. We lamented strangeness of this rotation around the sun we have looked forward to twenty twenty one. So let's just kind of do it all out rap. Jamie how are you. How goes in your parts. Are you dusted with snow. As we are here in new york it is a little bit more than a dusting here but We are warm inside staring. It's still coming down but we are. We are all good here. I can always tell the rhythm of tennessee's in based on knows a press releases. I'm sent in when there are no tournaments On the calendar when they're no match is being played They tend to get to increasingly distant for tennis itself. It's been a while since. I've gotten a press release about An actual tournament result or a match result. So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport in some of this was the society Some of this was just trying to salvage events and put some some money in player's pockets. But i do really hope that. This spirit of enterprise. We can do things a little bit different than we break some models. We can defy conventional wisdom. We can try and shift dates around if miami has to be played for one year in the middle east so be it and if indian wells gets moved to october and everybody stops in the desert on their way to from china so be it. I hope that this is one of the legacy of this. This unhappy year is that tennis has a lot more liability and is a lot. More nibble has the job of its flexibility on the court. It can do the splits. And i do think that if any good comes out of this year apart from what you say that the emergence of team was great. And i always talk then. Profes- mitch there was. There was really howard moments on court. But i do think to me one of the great sort of i hope. Enduring legacies of this horrible year is a tennis has proven that it's a lot more nimble than than perhaps we thought. Perhaps it bought So i guess we'll sort of you know against a lot of we can use that to transition to twenty twenty one. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the schedule about rankings about where the tokyo olympics factor into the this year. That's already growing complicated but I do think there was a real spirit of cooperation in our ingenuity video of enterprise. Haven't always seen in tennis

So let's let's just kind of take final inventory of twenty twenty one twenty two twenty then spinning forward to Twenty twenty one. Are there any any sort of enduring memory. You're doing capsule late straight year in in in one image. What would it be in one image. That is hard. I would say if that was the case in an empty an empty stadium. An empty arena. But i think i think for me you did this a little bit in your mouth but i kind of have to agree with you that feel like all in all a twenty twenty was terrible of course across the board but for china's i do think that sport distinguish itself in many ways in. I think that for a lot of the players that you know we have been talking about for years now It was really nice to see a lot of those players breakthrough in different ways. I think of course dominic. Thiem you know had finally won his first major and you know he had a really strong year across the board You know twenty seven years old finally gets to his high ranking. Gets that major. And you know it's all done at that first ornament back first major nine only osaka of course who not only is her major haul here but then she found her voice and you know use it and use it well and i think You know we can talk a little bit more about her but you have severe kenan against him. Thank someone who we talked about. Who is young and she. You know kind of proved again that she is here and you know she's twenty twenty two years old but her first major win was not a fluke and the list goes on. I think again. These are players that we've been talking about and it was good to see them all breakthrough re cement themselves and kind of redefine their careers This year in twenty twenty such important year for everyone. I can give you my My off-court analog to that I think we're all waiting to see which of these changes are stopgap in that means in life and not just a tennis We which of these are going to be a new way of life so our zoom good replace office and are we all going to be enjoying outdoor dining going forward and how much of this is just Emergency measure it. How much this heart and into our new reality. And i think at tennis we have the same thing that we haven't had a lot of match results I'm glad you hit on the ones we did. And i did have some really good tennis but i think a lot of the discussion has been about. How do we broadcast sport. How do we travel the australian open falsifying dough high then charter private planes for everyone to then quarantine them austrailia. And we have events moving. And we've experimented with different formats for tennis and i think if any good has come out of this year it has been that tennis has finally decided to innovate to cooperate. It's not always been perfect. But i think there's a real sort of spirit of enterprise it hasn't always been around the sport in some of this was the society Some of this was just trying to salvage events and put some some money in player's pockets. But i do really hope that. This spirit of enterprise. We can do things a little bit different than we break some models. We can defy conventional wisdom. We can try and shift dates around if miami has to be played for one year in the middle east so be it and if indian wells gets moved to october and everybody stops in the desert on their way to from china so be it. I hope that this is one of the legacy of this. This unhappy year is that tennis has a lot more liability and is a lot. More nibble has the job of its flexibility on the court. It can do the splits.

Ex-Cisco Employee Convicted for Deleting 16K Webex Accounts

"I'm gonna tell you about a chap called sudesh qasaba ramesh and he was working at cisco which of course the giant technology firm working there from Midway through twenty sixteen up until april twenty eighteen where he departed the company. Okay so he spent. How many years say he was there for almost two years to fully months. After he left the company's employment he decided to log into their systems specifically some cisco systems which were hosted on an amazon. Aws server when those cloud buckets those blobs of computer mitchell. Don't kinds of clever things up there in the cloud. Do we know where he is in america. Always in the state somewhere else can start. Yes yes But he is no longer under their employees so he's no longer working with them but this is only months after he left. Let me just let me just repeat that. This was fi months after he some heat when he was able to do it. Not just he thought about it he actually did he did. He logged in Has it never happened to you. That a client has left the gates open after you no longer working for them anymore. I'm sure they have. I'm sure correct answer because you've never checked because that would be a bad thing. It would be yes. I i exactly. I'm sure there have been Companies i've worked for who haven't changed the credentials and you're working for technology and security firms Well in some cases. Yes so. I'm just saying i'm just saying i'm not surprised that just when i was working down kentucky fried chicken to him some extra bob. It wasn't yeah we'll okay but this was cisco you're right so cisco's is a big dog. Okay so five months. After this guy's finished employed he manages to log in. yeah he looks in someone. Forgot to do something. I wanted just having a nose you think or know. He's not just news around. They'll just have a curious to see if the company still doing well in his absence. He's not doing that. I wonder how cisco doing without me. No no i miss. I have yeah. Yeh we've all done it. That's why. I wonder how bad doing no i've left up shit. Grew up to something else. You're saying yes. So sudesh ramesh. He looks in to this. Aws server and deletes. Oh four hundred fifty six virtual machines. Oh boy which were being used by cisco to power. Its webex video conferencing service. Oh for god's he's trying to bring go to it's knees through its web x.'s. As though webex doesn't bring the entire world to its knees on a regular basis whenever you into it. Music video chat yet. The video conferences. You must have used it. Have you guys used webex video Yes pre pandemic. Oh yes it's been usurped by things. Like zoom zoom really has sort of caught everyone's imagination now hasn't but webex was. It's still worsley going strong in its eased by some organizations. What's the mark corporate one. So as a consequence of ramesh deleting all these virtual machines as a result of this over sixteen thousand webex teams accounts. Were shut down for up to two weeks. Imagine the impact on productivity. That's right productivity. Must have gone through the roof. Yes well we can't have a meeting. Oh darn we'll have to do some work instead over the sending email You're on mute and having all those kind of kenya hemi austria on my last call cheese every over there so they can hear you over the line. This is the way so. I'm just doing next to somebody who did exactly that on the national conference call five. Am called into the office showers loud as that two countries anyway and so sixteen thousand accounts were shut down up to two weeks cisco spent roughly one point four million dollars restoring the damage paying people to restore the autism restore them. Don't you have to just press. Go back to you control z. Issue dragged out of the track. They would have backups. Shirley we would think so. Wouldn't you and they also had to pay over one million dollars to customers in refunds. 'cause they're hosting all. These webex is for other companies. People would have had contracts and they would have had to say. oh terribly. sorry you haven't been to use it two weeks. We can haul webinars that people were not able to host yet. Not just internal inside your company but one would have been given to customers. Mike god the product marketing manager is going insane thinking like from the marketing team. Like oh there goes yeah calendar. We've got a problem. We've got to change the landing pages real to reel who's who's at full the guy did it. Yeah ultimately him. Yeah yeah. I mean like leaving your car unlocked right so if i left my car unlocked and then someone stole something from inside my car which has happened to me. Whose fault is it right. Ultimately prison stole a thing for my car because it is parked in my drive. But they're opportunist and you'd say well lock your doors dumb ass. Yes so so cisco should have looked dolls. Demolish had the kind of. I'm guessing pretty high level privileges to do that. Much damage that easily. I mean nobody locked. Is the countdown nine. A little bit. I mean jeez. Five months later. I mean i can understand if it was the day after he left but five months later. My guess is that win. Some sunlight ramesh left employment at the company. They may well have revoked his access to active directory and his ability to log into his email or something like that. But i wonder whether access to the aws server or something which was available to many people in the it poem. Maybe they were sharing credentials shared crafts. Yep and. I think that's probably what was happening. And it's hard to workout if you do share credentials inside an it team who might know those looking credentials in. It's a pain to change them. Because that's gonna affect lots of other people and lots of other services. Well not if you use a really good password manager. Well simplifies a lot right because you can change at the admin level for everybody. Yeah i suppose so if you also have services which might be logging into these systems and it may be. It's grabbing the password for everything. The real mistake here is sharing. Paul sweats right. There are teams of people where the password we'll be known to a variety of people and they'll log in they'll doing administration and all kinds of different maintenance and our work on a particular system and the thing is that they don't have individual password see can't just revoke a person's password scrape advice. We share passwords possibly shared. Yes we share passwords to run this. Podcast jimmy yes. You're not cisco though. I know we're not cisco but i'm saying we know better and we do it because the work around to do it. Any other way is too complicated like just ridiculously complicated. Can i show you cro- the if one of us were to leave smashing security to set up a podcast about. I didn't know piccoli predicament. Something in fact took off and weren't interested in smashing security any more than i would change the past or whoever remained would change the parts of those accounts. And so that you or whoever had left would no longer be a system really. Does this mean you're joining our podcast now. Is that what i'm understanding. It sounds like to me. So there's clearly some in the of cisco they should have changed the log in credentials right just like you would expect when people leave a company to hand in their badge or giving any keys which they have to look doors but shed credentials bad bad bad ideas so for something that business kercheval legs the kingdom. I mean it's one thing to say you know. Here's the marketing log in for. I don't know something really unimportant. But your admin credentials for your entire webex product. So cisco call sedition when they figured out what happened and say look. We obviously dismissed bad way and offer him a nice severance package and a hug will in a donut to get to the bottom. Exactly what his beef was with sysco. What made him do this with some months. Later is not really an act of passion is it. he was still doing. Shushing takes five months to stir it be angry with the company. But you're not angry necessarily move its customers and you're not probably angry with most of your former colleagues so remain professional. Don't take it out on them. Because what if you are though. What if you do eight all. Your fork is a justified in this case. Reminded me a little of the case of terry challenge. Do you remember terry. Childs was a former network administrator the city of san francisco back ten or fifteen years ago. I remember his name right. Well yes he infamously looked up. The city's entire network for days in two thousand and eight resets nor the admin passwords. So that only he knew them and he refused to reveal them to anybody and the excuse he gave and you know. He was arrested in things in a week and a half. Nothing was happening. Because no i'm gonna tell you the password you can't and he claimed it wasn't going to tell the bosses or the managers the passwords because he was concerned that they would indiscriminately share those credentials with third party contractors and so. He didn't like that. People were being careless with passwords. He was like l. So you so you the vaults you cannot break it and ultimately oh my go to me. The mayor of san francisco had to personally go and chat with him. He was the only trustworthy person. That doesn't sound just like a typical quote rogue employees. I think there's some mental stuff going on there because that's a baby or something. That's that's that goes beyond anyway sedation. Ramesh he pleaded guilty on. The ship has now been sentenced to twenty four months in the clink and to pay a fifteen thousand dollar fine as well and because he was here on a visa as well. I suspect he may find it difficult to stay case

Yesterday's a jack boone's who's a professor in the department of ece fisa goal in planetary sciences unto colorado boulder. He is also vice president images for academic affairs in blue sage for disuse system system. Jack while thank you. Joe is good to be with you. Thanks for doing this so you at your team. On deeply involved in the upcoming nasa missions to the moon including The designed to place radiofrequency absolutely on the far side of the moon and be kevin deemed really back there for almost fifty years. Now i know that china s landed. I was actually looking at some photographs that just gained today from From their lander. I israel in india. Almost got there but Fleas land properly. And so so. What's our interest. What's sudden interest in going back to the moon after fifty years. Yeah i don't know that. I would characterize as a sudden interest i think on the part of the science community and really the exploration community interest has been there for a while but what has changed in the last decade is the cost doing missions And the accessibility of the moon in this new era in which we have now. Private companies like spacex and like the blue origin company. Jeff bezos company They've put considerable private resources in developing new rockets of with reusability to lower the launch costs and also technology which was extreme in the nineteen sixties to try to get to the moon. All hannity vetted from scratch now is relatively straightforward at gill as you mentioned Even a small countries like israel Private companies have contracts with nasa to fly payloads. Now it's it's it's realizable to Envision going to the moon at a relatively modest cost certainly in comparison to the sixties and seventies. Yes so that's a. It's a very interesting phenomenon. Now it's it's almost like a business model question. Space is Blue blue horizon blue origin. Laura gin and that is another company. Lakers peterson things. Well lockheed you ally the united launch alliance which is the lockheed and boeing Company as well they all have these new generation of launch vehicles that are capable of going to so nasa in some sense outsourcing Some of the transportation right to so captain made a selection or are they going to do essentially multiple companies. Do it the the plan is to have monk multiple companies just like the commercial crew program To the space station there's boeing and spacex And for the case of the moon for the un crude landers that Landers that are just carrying payloads nasa has identified a out a dozen companies To be able to transport a payloads to the moon and at the same time. They're also undergoing competition right now. They selected three companies to design as part of a public private partnership the next generation of human landers. So that's the same. Mostly the same group that has spacex blue origin and the third one is is dynamic which is a company in huntsville alabama rate. So it's nassar's goal here is They are they going to take contracts from other other countries do send pedal to the moon in these companies. The the way this is working now is nasa is buying services so they're no longer buying rockets or landers which they will then own operate Instead the philosophy is To buy a ride for example a seat On a human land or or by space for a payload so these companies that are responsible for indemnifying Making sure they have a proper insurance for losses They take A bit of the risk and and then proceed along those lots now. What that means is that the companies then they own the intellectual property they owned landers they rockets they own the The other transportation devices. So that means they can sell seats. They can sell payloads to for example a european space agency Or the russian space agency or individual companies. That might want to puts a payload on the moon Investigation in this kind of a lower gravity environment so it's much more entrepreneurial than what we had before and it lowers the cost to the taxpayer for doing all these things by the artist program. Which is the new human programs. The moon the Recently released cost to get the first woman in the next man to the moon by twenty twenty four is a factor of ten less than the apollo program. Yeah it's interesting. I remember jack I was involved a little bit on the economic side of the next generation. Space legal program two thousand two thousand one two thousand two timeframe and this was a program was supposed to replace the shuttle and we did not go forward with it and i guess so. What was the arranged with the russian system to get their astronauts into space station. Yeah the the problem was that you might recall The shuttle accident that occurred in two thousand three And then president. George w bush declared that the shuttle really wasn't safe And that needed to be replaced and it took a while. We're still in the process of of fully replacing it. The last shuttle launch was twenty eleven If i remember correctly so in the meantime in order to get to the space station What we did is contract with the russians to use their soyuz spacecraft to go back and forth the space station so we. What we did is the buy seats. Those seats cost about seventy five or eighty million dollars so they weren't cheap but eventually got us back and forth. He said before we get the details of the Admission stack help philisophical question so way we have technology advancing the about conflict. Television's really taking off machines. Getting lot smarter What does sort of the basis for sending humans Could be not accomplished thing that human could do with machines if that's a good question i'm glad you answered that you ask that question because Excuse me i think what we're looking for now is is Really different mode for doing work on services like the moon or mars. Excuse me in that. We unlike apollo you had a single astronaut. Geologists such as astronaut harrison schmitt on all seventeen doing classic field geology. With a shovel to now advance unit twenty-first-century. We're gonna to do. Is i like to say we're going to bring Silicon valley with us to the moon. So we're going to bring advanced robotics. Be telly operated. That will use a machine. Learning artificial intelligence And will team with the astronauts so that they will these. These rovers advance scouting. They will identify interesting places and then the role of the astronaut is to make critical decisions on what to investigate What the samples. Look like i. i still think it's true. I've been told from my colleagues who are geologists stromer But who are uninsured. Scientists in that the difference for example between. Let's say the The curiosity rover on mars. And what it's been doing and having a human on mars that the work that the curiosity rover has done last seven years could be done in two days by geologists. a that's the difference and to also bring back. You know better selected samples and so forth. So there's no replacing humans and that's not going to happen anytime soon but you you do your point being. You only wanna use humans when you actually have to. Because their time is valuable and they're expensive and also Walking around even on the surface of the moon is dangerous. Because the you know the a space where the asian micrometeorites another possible dangerous but going into this new environment. I think what we're going to be able to do is reduced risk and improved efficiency. The i don't remember the numbers but a human Mission is about ten x the cost of a non human mission. Obviously the the efficiency and like you say what begin out of it different but guess on the cost side. It's about the fact of a magnitude different you know. That's hard to say because robots still are very limited in what they can do. They're just so many things that only humans can do is a little bit of apples and oranges but yet you're probably right that on the ballpark about a factor of ten. Maybe even more. But there's also much more than a factor of ten improvement in efficiency. So you know. Those costs will balance out and obviously the advantage of a human is You know they've been. The unexpected happens in michigan learning in As long as you have heard of data to teach a machine but then the unexpected happens machines. noel exactly. The rover gets stuck. It suffers a mechanical problem. That If you have a human there at least in the vicinity can help fix it. And move orders you know i think about for example servicing of the hubble space telescope and that was done five times by human astronauts and The astronauts such as john grunsfeld did to the servicing missions was very clear that the telescope could not have been repaired in upgraded by anything other than humans because the tab the complexity of the task the ability to be able to get in and To make repairs Make on the spot. Decisions just You know there was no replacing that so hopefully humans have a few more years of Do i think we've got many years to tell you the truth. I think it's going to be you know in reading some of the literature. I think it's going to be a quite a long time if ever that. We have truly Intelligent self aware machines can operate with the same decision making kick be very good at repetitive calculations outstanding job of there but You know making creative innovative entrepreneurial. Decisions were We're nowhere close to that yet So i do that. A multiple missions being planned An international collaboration so he's the first one that is supposed to take off as leave. Yeah artists is the new name for the human missions to the moon Artemis in greek mythology was the sister of apollo The twin sister of apollo. She's the goddess of the moon. So that's very appropriate. Since nasa has already declared bet up for that first landing which nasa has been planning for twenty twenty four would Would have that first woman in the next man on the surface the first expedition by humans to the moon in the twenty first century. So optimistic applaud. Its name the program programming program. Yeah exactly right so so andrade damasio multiple things going on And so do we have sort of a space station like that is going to orbit the out. Yeah in fact. That's honored design. And we'll be under construction in the next few years has called the gateway lunar gateway. And it's it's not like the space station in the sense of being gigantic And being really limited to that single orbit the gateway is really more of a spacecraft is going to have a pulse in system using a new generation of solar electric bad is ion propulsion That will be piloted for potential for optometry use in going to mars. I have just a couple of modules that will be there it will be a place where astronauts coming from the earth on on the orion spacecraft which is a it plus the space launch system is a heavy lift vehicle that will take astronauts the moon they will dock at the gateway and then they will get into a reusable lander go to the surface. Come back in that lander and then the next crew that comes in will do the same thing so you don't throw everything away like we did during hollow in the nineteen sixties again. The reusability idea is Is key to keeping the costs down so so it is more dealer so can't be attached as as alright right. Ds change in the future. Cab edge more against it. We can in fact The japanese space agency jaksa recently committed to fly a module And nasa has invited others such as the russian space agency to think about them attaching A module as well so it definitely is modular. That way you can add habitats you can add laboratories And can can grow over time. But it's also the the idea is that it's going to be long duration spaceflight and it's away way from the earth's magnetic field so you've got the full range environment of what you would have going to mars. So i think nasa all also looks at. This is a prototype of the vehicle that would be sent to mars. Lucchese david some Conversations yet again. Remember that To go to mars you would rather start off. Start off from the moon. Is that still thinking or that. Exchange i don't think that's been decided but there's this potential real advantages of a loon. First of all launching from the moon versus the earth requires much less thrust. What what we call delta the. That's the change in velocity to Get off there. Because there's only one sixth gravity on the moon and secondly if we're successful in mining water from the minute we know now there's considerable amount of water at the polls of the moon That's hydrogen and oxygen. We can convert that potentially into rocket fuel. You wouldn't have to bring that from earth so the costs associated with launching some could be substantially reduced in doing this from the moon versus from your so people are actively working that right now and seeing if that might be the way to go i of think that might end up being How missions to To mars or undertaking so under optimus Are there plans to actually create a habitat a big enough habitat for people to stave or extended period of time. So nasa has designs. And once again i should mention this is. This is all international Insa is involved. The european space agency is involved in providing a module for the service module for the orion. It also will be working on the gateway. The canadian space agency is providing the robotic arm And the same will be true on the surface The idea is that the first few missions will of just get started That first nation in twenty twenty four is planned to go to the south pole of moon. Will we've never been to before and look at the water. Ice situation there but Over time by the end of the decade the expectation is that will have multiple habitats. And we'll have people staying there for long periods of time like the arctic station. It's run by the national science foundation. The mcmurdo station as called in which you have a number of scientists come in and visit for anywhere from a few weeks to staying for year here so salama but when the next generation space program was in progress space. Too big big project. I would imagine spacex Others cab this business plan so what's the clamps time Do that The gay yes. So it'll be somewhere between three and five days to get from the earth and you're right about. The tourism spacex already has a fide a japanese businessman. If i remember correctly who has bought a A ride not the surface of the moon but to orbit the moon on a spacex vehicle. Sometime in a in a few years but the it'll be in a three to five days to get to the gateway and then Another day to get down to the surface. So i fully expect by the end of the decade especially given the accessibility to the moon by the private sector and by isa companies That they will be selling seats to wealthy individuals to spend a A summer holiday on the moon is so if the if the gateway is expandable perhaps Taxpayers can make some money nasa. Well it might be. Yeah but but once again this is. The transportation for the most part is probably not going to be through nasa but by these individual companies who own their own rockets their spacecraft and now they will sell seats to to wealthy tourists. yeah and so You you mentioned the european space agency. You mentioned the canadian space agency of so. Is this like the space station. A larger collaboration or those are the three major ones. Yeah it is and you're right. There are Oh gosh there's probably a dozen or so. Companies countries rather involved in the international space station and nasa envisions this much the same thing And i to. I order all the countries that are involved in. The international space station have been invited to become involved with the gateway And so as i mentioned several have accepted with With enthusiasms others are still keeping that around and take a quick break jack. Benny come back to talk about the radio. Frequency of savitri on the far side of the more that you're designing you bet sounds good. This is a scientific sense. Podcast providing unscripted conversations bit leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics. You like to sponsor this podcast. Please reach out to in full at scientific sense dot com back Jack you're talking about upcoming missions to the moon Some of the manned mission some of some of the technology that you're sending up there there is a gateway bridges like the space station but attested propulsion its zone. Sorta are based entity source. And it's more dealer things could be attached to it. That may be subject is imploding. Creating that a launchpad so to speak to go to mars perhaps habitats that a large announced a mining for water mighty for hydrogen and other things and so he the program is called autonomous. So could be portal light program and underneath optimists. There are various things being planned right. So what are the The primary objectives all of those radius approved betas projects. I should say under under optimus. Yeah we'll go. let me let me start off by just looking at the difference with The apollo program because the apollo program ended fairly abruptly once the political goals were reached and it was never Really a sustainable program so Nasa and i think all of the governmental space agencies are looking for is for arsonist to be the beginning of a sustained presence on the moon and in space and using the moon as a stepping stone for human and robotic exploration of the solar system including getting the mars so the philosophy of artists is really quite different. So you're there the stay So you need to figure out how to live off the land. So that does mean as you're saying mining's water being able to grow crops being able to manufacture Equipments the habitats themselves from the From the of the regular or the soil material so using the the kind of advanced manufacturing capability three d. printing Electrolysis so that's a really different approach. And it means that what will be worked on is not just get there but a flag in the ground rather in full of soil and return on instead it means You know how do you figure out how to be there for the long haul so that means than learning how to to excavate how to build How to really maintain a life in a in a certain sense of independence. Part of the reason you want to do all that is because that's exactly what's going to be

There has been a line on side of economic reform was in india that its agricultural sector needs needs to form so it's a complex system because the pricing of particularly wheat and arrives essentials tour staples is also set by the government. So it's a very complex system of procurement and pricing which is now being opened to as tour of corporate interests of big business. So it's really in a way for for decades because one of the things that happens in its becomes. Independent is that the farming sector is is left tax to kind of overcome the colonial legacy which had been seen a series of famines and as a result the first independent government in india decided. That farming will be taxed. So it's it's it's part of a knock history to buck. These reforms are pretty a pretty as it will. I wouldn't brutal but they're quite. Yeah it's one of about about. They're pretty brutal. They will allow. they will not allow the small farmer. The one acre farm off owns say just a little bit of land to survive and So the government is trying now to open talks it did not expect such a backlash it. It did expect some backlash to come a from a couple of northern states. It was prepared for that but it had it wasn't prepared. Moody was not prepared for aid holding power of off these farmers. Because they've actually gonna come a come and taken over the borders of the capital of the city the capital city in in deady and there are you know the camped up there and so it's it's interesting and because of the farming psycho but because farmers are not due to any great amount of farming till april. This could be a long haul. This protest is not gonna go anytime soon. And i mean it's not just about farm as the government's been trying to push through other reforms to the two sectors which the government has been interested in this particular has been interested in one us label laws and the other is a farm laws. Now movie if you recall has never blinked. He democratized the calling me overnight. This has come without as the parliament's sitting the winter session of parliament has not sat down. It has come to an ordinance so it's pretty as it were direct legislation the prime minister himself and his and his office. And we'll see whether this policy unlike say this ship amendment act which of course in the buddhist of that got interrupted partly because off the off the pandemic. Roberto bet that also is on the chef. But this this is really a set of laws are going to be a test of modi's true political metropcs the keys thus far he has been he's been pretty brazen in putting his agenda forward and pushing it through and taking the cost as an whether it's international opprobrium or criticism from intelligence. He's kind of brushed that aside. This is different because this this matters to a vast vast vast majority of north indian and usa bits of southern farmers So how rattled is mode. I mean is this a real threat to his power. I mean it's hard to say because aden he's not due to face a mandate for another four years so he's fine at that level but it is also interesting that every winter as your opener stated now does the second winter where there are there are large scale protests in the capital city over now a different a different issue. It took me shows that his agenda is not one of consensus his agenda whether it is in the economy because people fear that this would bring in a big corporate interests people who backed him like embodies audio danny's who will then as it were by big land takeover farmland but also take over a not just land but it was the entire system of buying and selling them into into the retail sector. So i think that real dangers in terms of the way in which corporate corporatization of indian agriculture and on the side but he has had some positive as it were support from the economic liberals in your delhi's intelligence circles or policy circa. This is a brief set of reforms. And he should it dozen this debate both in terms of the the policy world. But i think the scale of the protests are we seeing signs of blinking on the side of moody because he has now had got his representatives to talk to a farm and the leaders of these these and they cut across party lines. These the is these unions that have come come today so but those talks now. They've had two or three series of talks all failed. So let's see. This is of that moment whether he will make some concession. Particularly on pricing is what one gathers. There might be some concession. But i don't think the laws which is what they want. These three sets of laws to repeal. The farmers demand is pretty high. So i'm not sure where the room for maneuver is going to come from. And i mean the purchase had a knock on effect. I mean for instance. I understand that chon sports being badly affected. Yes i mean. The city is all the deli sort of sits between two or three very major. You know it's it's the route into central india. And the barricades have been erected before the i was going to come and you know because there there's so many farmers just lifted the barricades them aside and took over a the entry level the entry point into city so that we know that means good Goods shocking all of that is affected. And you really can't get out of the city lock as it were neighboring states in you know look at can bring in goods into into into the capital so i think a transport of course is a deeply affected but it's also very bad for moody to see You know the this kind of resort and it's not bad for his image if you have hundreds of thousands of peasants with their families you know it's not just been but the families a camping actually doorstep and and if if he looks like he he he doesn't engage with them he will also come across someone who's not die logic something. He's not met journalist. For instance. i think that will that will dent his it identifies image if he so. We'll see it's kind of interesting moment In whether he. I said whether he not concede something blink. Make some concessions. Or whether he's going to sue the remain ideologically a commit did to these reforms and we'll take the political slack as it comes

The One Hack Nobody Knows About Facebook Advertising Success

"We're gonna be talking with nay hall kazeem from abc pros founder and ceo of ad pros. Welcome to perpetual traffic or welcome back to perpetual traffic. Thank you so much appreciate you having me back so i think this is something that people they give it some lip service i think at the very least and at the very most they do an okay job of it and you like we do here tier eleven. We look at a lot of ad accounts every single week. And this is the area where we really feel like scale is possible if you have a process in place you've got a really interesting process of how to actually pull out new avatars new messaging and how that resonates with new markets to scale and grow your customers and for those of you who are listening here today. There may be new to facebook ads or new to paid media. You don't have to do everything here. i think you know. We talked about this before we hit record. What's the opposite of what we're doing here is is really doing nothing. It's just sort of taking a guess on your avatar. You know if you're selling a supplemental like all right. What's a mom. She's thirty to forty five years old. She's got two kids. This is a lot deeper than that. I think there is that level of avatar research. That a lot of people think they do. But if you can go just a little bit deeper a few levels deeper maybe not to the degree that hauled us here. I think you'll find that you will be able to scale and go past that six figures per month and adspend which really seems to be a big barrier for people but might be from going from ten dollars a day to one hundred dollars a day or one hundred dollars a day two thousand dollars a day so all these principles that we're gonna be talking about here on episode two eighty three apply to you. It's just a matter of figuring out like what part do you want to integrate into your system or potentially even higher nails company if that is so why don't we get right into. It could give us an example or or a little bit of an idea as to what the process is like but maybe high came to it. And where you sort of see this whole thing going. I started doing facebook ads in two thousand thirteen so what was important. Six seven years ago versus what's important now is very different and even what we were doing a year ago on what we were. Focusing on in an account is dramatically different. And the reason you know we we started talking about this where the focus of creative is not because you and i or anyone like listening to us loves creatives is because it ends up working that become such a big scaling levers over us we believe in two types of levers there's scaling lovers stuff that actually allows you to scale and grow and generate more revenue but then there's the other side which is profit levers and so depending on what's important to you and which levers importance to you based off your goals and your business that dictates where you actually focus and if right now if you're not deciding which lovers or which areas to focus on therefore you're not pulling any lovers in your business and that's why there is no breakthrough why revenue is flat or ball told because it's just there's nothing to actually focus on and the reason we're focusing on avatars and creative so much is because once you max out all the ninja quote unquote stuff on facebook ad optimization side. Then you're like what else can i do and you know for us once. We are doing the same types of campaign setups and different variations and ways to set up everything on the facebook outside. You eventually run out of cool. Ninja stuff there's not more and that hack is going to last a week or two weeks and then it dies and then you have to start again and so what are the actual sustainable systems. That are going to help you grow over and over again. And that's why we've developed all of this stuff because our mindset is how do we take companies. We're doing six figures a month in revenue to seven figures a month. And we've done that this year now. Four times for a relatively small like Client roster and that's because we're not guessing or you know just trying our luck it's we're working on systems to actually do it over and over again and this really is like the ultimate hack. Even though it's the hack that takes a lot of time. It's not like this little technique that you learn in a facebook group and say oh now that's going to be the thing i think we're kind of beyond that there are still going to be hacked and there's going to be those groups it i get it and you know you're always going to be testing those things but this is really the big lever. I mean this is the little hinge which is a lot of work. Let's not kid ourselves here. That really does swing the big door. So how do you go about doing it. And what's your process. Maybe just give us an overview of the whole system. The first place that we start is what are all the avatars you have in your business and this is really important. Because most people don't outline them they have chosen one by default or chosen one a year or two ago. That is our avatar in. That's it and so we've worked in the crochet space. For example in the stereotypical crochet audience might be the older lady who knits or does crochet. But once you actually challenged that assumption we were able to spend a significant amount of money on actual giveaway him in and it was primarily women who are twenty five to forty five years old. And so if you change your challenge the assumptions that you have that's a big barrier because you don't know what you don't know you're actually actually exploring that and so for us. An example is we have a client in the children's supplement space and with that type of audience or would that type of product. There's actually a series of avatars in that space. There is number one the abitur who is the soon to be mom and so. That's one type of car then. It's the new mom who just had the baby lesson one years. Then there's the mom who might be from one to four years and that mom is very different from the other two months. Then the mom who's forty eight years old and then there's the debt in our marketing. Once you have those in place we know we're not going to work it to the debt. Dad doesn't care he just i among right. That's what we learned at least for this specific case. Then we realized that the children are the less irrational the actual. Buying behaviour is is logical. There's a lot more research that gets done. They're not in that phase where everything looks amazing. And they're just stocking up on every single product that they possibly can nesting right like they are actually doing a lot of research and so what we decided was the two avatars at actually make the most amount of sense for this audience is a soon to be mom. Becauser buying everything and anything under the sun and the brand new mom who just as as their child and bear in protector wrote there and like i will do whatever i can for my child and so their money is a is not an object for them relatively speaking and so the reason we got to those is because of two very important questions people. Don't ask in those two questions are which avatar out of the to divide whatever number of abattoirs you to find what is the attitude that has the highest average order value on the first transaction and in this the second question is which avatar has the highest lifetime value of those avatars that you've defined and that's how we got to the person the mon- the to me mom is going to spend a lot of money so as a brand new mom as well as because we have products up to were children up to eight that same mom is most likely to spend the most amount of money for once they're actually in that ecosystem.

"But. I will put it in the context of the month and be like okay, this promoter has this. We have this live band. We have this DJ after that, how does this fit together? What's driving? What is not? How do we re appropriate that it's all a big puzzle? Right. And so to get back to like the whole collaborative spirit of it like it is a big collaboration. But ultimately, when you're curated, something there needs to be a final say, right? And the final say to. From my perspective, always belongs to the person who has the most skin in that game now. Right. That's the DJ who's put the lifetime of effort into that set. Right. The it's the music producer who's put the lifetime of a motion into that song. So that's what it boils down to. It's like just pick the right stuff for the right job don't bullshit. Don't get out of your depth. Don't get out of your area of expertise. And but if they work with right in and share information that's going to help them so that they're encouraged to share the information can help you one. Another interesting thing, I'm thinking about now is how much DC and the music scene here has changed since you hall opened incredibly so right now a you're not the new fresh exciting venue anymore. And there's several competing quote unquote venues. Right. Who do not the same thing, but similar events that maybe would draw the same crowd that would come here that maybe didn't exist when you started. Yeah. Do do you find competition energizing do you find it? Do you even think of it as competition? I try not to compete with anybody at U haul people compete with us. Yeah. And one yet to be fair. We should say too. I mean you hall one of the best clubs in the nation. I'm not just saying that because I'm your friend. I mean, that's what Rolling Stone said that. And I mean, I think it's been acknowledged at this point Guys fortunate fortunate to. to. Yeah. I think a lot of that was timing and degree of execution, and all the rest of that. But yeah, there's, there's a lot more places here. And I try not to look at it as competition the way that we do our stuff is focusing on what we do best. And that's always the way to success period. It's when you try to focus on something that you shouldn't be doing more that is not the suited for you. We'll get in the weeds. It's simple as that. And or if you get insecure like say new club opens up and you see they're doing well doing something that you don't do. And you think, oh, maybe I should do what they're doing that to me. I mean you see it with deejays producers to write you that you have no integrity, right? Stick to your guns, like, and so we thought long and hard about who we wanted to be I thought long and hard about who I wanted to be, and I decided a long time ago. And so that's made it easier to. Stay the course in certain programmatic angles. Right. And so, yeah, I feel like we really helped encourage a lot of people in DC to enter this fear, because they saw that it could be done. And I'm very proud and happy about that. So I think we have a great scene in the community in DC, and some of those clubs and promoters have done a really good job of doing something that wasn't already there, something that we don't do here and others have. Right. And it's just like to me, it's like you're not gonna get it until you get it. Right. Right. So it's just like anything else, whether it's producing or -ing it's, it's, it's like surfing. There's no there's no rules to it. But there are also a lot of things you can't do if you wanna do it successfully. So just figure it out and see. Yeah. We, we, we have stayed true to the primary, in my opinion, the primary. Principles of U-Haul that was set forth when we open one is that it is democratic and open for everyone and that goes for music cramming as well. It is a music hall. It is not a nightclub. We do not only have deejays and is funny, because we got known as a DJ club and people talked about it as a DJ club..

"And then investigative though like the hidden camera was an adrenaline rush. Really? Right. Yeah. Because you're always afraid that you're gonna get caught a little bit. You wanna make sure that you have the camera angles the equipment we were using back. Then as I said was a little unwieldy. You know, now, I love doing profiles on people because I find people so fascinating a little bit different though. Because you dig long for the personality versus trying to pin them as a bad guy. Catch the rat. So to speak. That's totally different spin. Yeah. When I was doing investigative stuff. I really wanted to change the world. I thought that we were writing wrongs, and this is going to be a great thing. And how old were you? Then where young enough to still be an idealist? I was in my twenties. Yeah. Beginning third. Yeah. It was good. And you didn't think any of that changed the world? I know you did some investigative reporting on U-Haul pizza. King scam artists real exposes you don't feel like by turning those people into the public Liden, exposing them that you really made a difference. Well, I hope so what do you really think? So you hall was renting equipment that they weren't really inspecting properly, and there were some horrific accidents. And that's when we started to look into, you know, working with a team of producers at this point, we would rent a lot of vehicles in different states. And then we would bring them to inspectors that we had set up in advance. And they would take a look at it. And the brakes were bad on some of them. There was no gas cap on another one. So I did it inside edition, and when I went to ABC after that they said we really liked that investigation. Could you redo it? I'm thinking I'm hoping that they've made it better. So I think we included trailers earned the crime. What are you still yet? No improvement. Not really. And then one of the people that worked on the project with me three weeks after it aired rented a u haul and got stuck on the side of the road. I got. No, no. It wasn't that horrific. But I say probably pay attention. I don't blame you whole. I would have given them the bummer. So hopefully, I don't remember seeing them in the headlines as much since then. So I do think that they've probably taken a target, and I'm sure that the older equipment has been moved off. And they're hopefully have newer equipment. And what was the skinny with pizza king? What were they doing? Just remember them as scam artists in anyway, the guy who ran it was a complete scam artist. So he had these vending machines that were supposed to spit out pizzas. And they didn't really work that. Well, I think they were frozen and the pizzas were moldy and people would buy into this idea. Oh by a vending machine. Yeah. And it wouldn't work. And then I don't remember exactly he wasn't paying them properly or he wouldn't take the equipment back. My husband. And I at the time we were both just working together. We were down in Florida, and we were staking out one of the places. I think were the vending machines were supposed to be held. And I think we were trying to locate the head of the. Company because nobody could find him at that point. So we're sitting in a car, and we were watching this place for hours and this security guard comes over and knocks on the window with a gun polled. Oh, my and those kind of terrifying moment, I said, yes, I think you guys need to leave. I would have had that to you. Hold to have the car cleaned right away. Let's go over you hall. I heard that you make your husband as a result of somebody pulling a gun, waving a gun. No. So so we worked together on that story. But I so I met him at inside edition. Oh, you did. Yes. We were both producing it was he there the day the guy roll down the window. Yes. It is. He knows love at first sight when he looked at you and Randy rescue. And I will you marry me on the spot..

"Knife in holding it parallel to the cooling rack that. The thing is sitting on slice the cake that way, right? That is that was Dougie's answer. You U-Haul says you're gonna make you cut parallel to the one kid's going to get the top half of of the of the brownie and the other kids going gonna get the bottom out. I don't like that solution because the top have on the bottom half, a not equal in terms, and they may be equal in area. But they may not be equal in terms of delectable. Well, here's the other solution that a be better. If you take a rectangle, how would you find the center of a rectangle you withdraw the diagonals? A you would find the center that's easy. Okay. And you will admit that either one of those diagonals cuts the rectangle in half. Sure. But what you don't know. Probably is that any line drawn through the centre. That's not a diagonal also cuts the rectangle in half. Sure except that or accept up to accept that any line drawn through the center of the whole that is a rectangle will divide that in half. Sure, I'll buy that too. So if you were to draw a line through the center of the big rectangle and went through the center of the whole, then you would cut the thing in exactly two pieces. All equal. So what I want to do is find the center of the little rectangle that are Osborne cut out. Right. Like and do that by making to Dag and all the way, they get the sectors the center of that little exactly right, then I can draw today. For the big piece of the brownie. And it makes no difference. Now where in fact, the other rectangle is if you connect the two centers with a straight launch straight line continuing cut. Well, straight lines go on forever. Yeah. You will have cut the thing in half. I think. No, that's good. Who's our winner? I wonder if this week is Christopher Kroll from Westfield, Massachusetts and having his answer.
