"ugo" Discussed on Odd Lots

"Pk's talking about here. What are you walk us. Through the basic contours of The haiti situation the numbers. The claims just sorta give us a basic summary of the colonial debt that was incurred why the debt was incurred how much it was so far. Okay so i'll begin with the easy part the the story which is wonderful and then i'll give ugo the boring part about the numbers that in the end are much more important so i think it's a bit embarrassing will go and i both consider ourselves scholars of international debt and have been doing this for at least two decades and neither of us had really paid any attention to the haitian independence debt of eighteen twenty five way it just seemed like those old obscure thing we really heard of. It didn't seem relevant to most of what we did until this last semester last year. Really when covert heads and we decided in our classes. You know maybe this is time to focus on some of the poorer regions around the world and see what's going to happen if they're really hit bad by cove it and they need to think. About what kind of financial recoveries can we get some of my students in my sovereign debt. Plus find this haitian independence of eighteen twenty five and i want to dismiss it because he does not what. I had planned that we would work on in the class. And then i started looking at it and started talking to ugo and our other co-authors about it and it's astounded so in eighteen twenty five. Haiti has a debt imposed on it. by france. france sends a bunch of boats. I think there were fourteen. Gunboats with five hundred guns pointed at the haitian capital and france says to the haitian people look. We're willing to recognize you. as independent. haiti had fought a bloody revolution. Against france and one is independence in eighteen four so two decades prior the french under napoleon had tried to take back eighty they had failed and then finally eighteen twenty five and this is after the louisiana purchase france sort of decides the no more colonies at least in that part of the world is just too expensive on new keep losing and so they tried to negotiate with haiti. We will give you your independence. We will recognize you as independent if you pay us. A hundred fifty million francs now to get some sense of how much diseases and ugo will hopefully talk about what fraction of haiti's revenues. It was at that time but the louisiana purchase was about fifteen million fronts. This is one hundred and fifty million francs they impose on haiti with the gunboats pointed at them and the calculation of this amount of the historical record is not completely clear but basically the french king charles needed this money to pacify the former plantation owners and their estates in france and calculations were made based on the amount of loss that they suffered specifically in terms of the number of slaves who went free as a result of the revolution. So that's the basic. That's that's the debt that was imposed on haiti. Haiti doesn't pay back for almost a century. Actually more than a century and much of haitian borrowing in the next century is just the payback. This extremely large debt that they owed defense now in terms of specific numbers. I leave the yugo. So may be day that we don't have good estimates for gdp a Period.

Who's the one who's the one who plays The Godfather theme on You're blaming it on me? Who plays the one who just request that during the commercial and badly said all we already got that record already got it ready? It's all so it's all set up. You go in my Who asked before 6 A.m., Len Burman, Me get away. Well, let's try to pin something on Redl. Right. Okay. Let's check in with our pile. Westchester County Executive George Latimer. Now, George, I'm sure you've had a few calls with the governor over the years. Have you ever had the Ron Kim treatment with the governor? No, Michael, I don't recall. Oh, that's a Dodge. I don't know if I ever heard of dodge. That was it. You know, by the way you guys were doing great without me, So keep on going. Have a nice day. See? See? Thanks for joining us, George. Gotta go. Gotta go. Yeah. All right, George. How's the rollout for the vaccine going up? How's it going in in western, So this is obviously we like everybody else. We don't have enough vaccine, but we probably issued over 120,000. Vaccinations, counting 1st and 2nd doses. So that's good. You know, not everybody is eligible for that. This point. So you're getting people who are over 65. You're getting people who have underlying illnesses. And then these essential situations. We've gotten through most of the police and fire and he and this guys who want it. Not everybody wants it. And right now we're trying to get teachers vaccinated because the big thing is open the schools. And, you know, I think we order but you know, the bottom line is if we don't get to teach is vaccinated. That's not gonna happen. So we're doing what we can with what we get every week and, you know, do this fast as we can. We're opening up another boy a week. Actually, the statement. Feds are opening up the facility in Yonkers to match the one we have in white Plains. But you know it, Z when we get enough vaccine Then we'll be fine because everybody who wants it, we'll get it. And then we'll start to get the masks on our faces and move forward, You know. Hey, George, the county executive. I'm wondering what you think of what these people did in North Dakota. I know if you heard but the the House of Representatives in North Dakota, they passed the law and sent it to the Senate over there, saying that nobody can order you to wear a mask Schools. You know, government, it's It's against the law to tell people I have to wear a mask. I I don't know they have You ever thought about that when another government does something something like that. You know, every areas that its own culture and God knows I've never even stepped foot in the state of North Dakota. And I wanna point out with great pride. More people live in Westchester than live in the state of North Dakota. Just so we have that on the record, I guess out there they have this individual thing. Everybody's got to do their own thing. And you know they can't be told what to do. Our government has not told everybody to wear a mask. We have encouraged everybody to wear Master. We don't stop people on the street and throw mask on their face. The willfulness of saying We don't want you to wear masks, but it doesn't make sense. Right now. The virus is out there. If I don't wear a mask, and I sneeze in your presence, you may get it from me. So it's just logical to put the mask on. Personally, I can't wait to take the masks off and leave it that way. But it's a matter of practicality. It's not a matter of ideology. And to me, That's what the North Dakota law sounds like. But you know what? I know. And George. What? The type. We've got these new strains out there. What type of strains? Have you guys been picking up in Westchester? We've gotten the UK strain. Michael, which I'm told is not more severe, but it is more uh, you know, communicative in which it will. It will infect more people more easily on the fights the right word, but it spreads faster. We have not seen some of these other strains that I've read about. But you know, with the way things are, I'm not going to be shocked If it's cases like that come into into Westchester. You know this metropolitan area we have people who travel and come and go. We're not, you know, sitting off in the more rural part of the state. So far, it appears that our numbers are dropping. We've dropped about Half of our active cases in the last five weeks, and I attribute that to the fact that more people getting vaccinated and we're dropping down from the spike that we had over the holiday bases. People get together. You know, Christmas, New Year's and more people get the disease unless people cluster like that 23 weeks later, In fact, we're looking right now to see if there's a Super Bowl spike because the Super Bowls for two weeks ago a little over two weeks ago, and we're not seeing one yet give a couple more days, and if we get through that, then we'll continue to see the numbers drop so What we're doing that we towards a lot of our Westchester. But the general at the generality of what we're doing seems to be working. We're planning to open play land this year. I don't know exactly how it's gonna look and feel when we do because we gotta go through a whole bunch of protocols. But we're going to try to get back to normal and it's close to normal as we can get the service we can get there. Well, you read my mind when I'm with George Lattimore, Westchester can executive because the governor last week said that the indoor and outdoor amusement parks can open it reduced capacity. And S O Michael, I immediately thought of right play land and thought of you. Um, what are you thinking along those lines? We'll probably open it later than we normally would. Probably, Uh, June, maybe a week before the fourth of July because we don't get enough attendance in the first month of the year without school kids coming down the whole school thing is, you know upside down. So we'll open a little bit later. I don't know if we're gonna do fireworks until the end of the season. You know, right around labor Day. We hope the number should be better by then. But here's what we gotta do. Guys. We've gotta have an army of people out there sanitizing every seat. In the Dragon Coaster and every bunker car of all the other rides in between every usage and is a huge amount of manpower as new dramatic labor time. We're gonna have to figure out How to have people socially distance throughout apartment. People, naturally just sort of already each other's you know, airspace and it could be done and we're going to do it, But you know for us, it's It's certainly not gonna be profitable, but We want people to enjoy. We wanted to enjoy playing land and we and if we close it another year, That's not the right answer. So there's gonna be tough, But I'm okay. We'll get there. You guys should come up. Maybe wait a little later in the season, you know, But come up. If you got kids, grandkids, nephews, nieces, It'll be a fun day. I don't have any of those things. But I'm coming up anyway, because I love the dragon. I don't think any of those things. Oh, by the way, way, But Georgia A listen. Listen, I'm brave George, If you're going to be there for the opening of Rye Playland, I'll show up and help you open it up and I'll.

How to Keep Computers Happy Using Chemistry

"I'm joined today by dr ugo. Sharma from cas which is a division of the american chemical society. Cas specializes in organizing and analyzing publish scientific data that informs researchers through their search platforms such as science finder and has also being used for customers learning analytics applications. I'm also joined by charles river. Scientists dr david clark. Who's a enthusiast together. We will be discussing the role of machine learning and chemistry how we can train computers to support researchers and how he can keep machines happy with high quality data. Welcome ugo and david exe my. Thanks mary me too. So i wanna start by getting our listeners on the same page. Can we discuss the difference between machine learning and true a i in which is really more valuable for chemists realistically sure. Yeah so we're gonna start by defining ai to a is it's really a broad concept refers to machines with intelligence and for the purposes. Here we can define intelligence is the ability to solve a problem so machine learning is actually a component of i. It's has subset and machine. Learning actually enables a system to learn by itself for chemists specifically a is the ultimate goal so using computers to speed up discovery and innovation and machine. Learning is really. What gets the work done here. And especially within applications like drug discovery so essentially you know leveraging computers to and existing data help reduce the available candidates face potential targets and some used to accelerate and reduce costs for drug discovery. This is really where rubber meets the road. And so you know africanus. There's other applications around things like molecular property. Prediction were trying to predict things like solubility melting points. You know all of these things. Leverage machine learning using known molecules in their properties the sort of predict properties for for new molecules that were unsure of other applications around molecule design. So medicinal chemist a lot of time designing new molecules variety of applications and then another sort of hot area right now. For a and chemistry's retro synthesis says basically when you have a given molecule using ai to predict viable pathways to actually synthesize that molecules becoming a pretty key area so for a drug discovery standpoint. David which part of this process is one of the most valuable for chemists like in terms of being able to analyze giant piles of data and come up with something useful. At which point is that the most useful for you a. A human chemist various levels of usefulness. I mean for many years. Chemists have been taking data and deriving predictive models from it in perhaps long before people were thinking of this as i. But i think one of the really breakthrough applications of i that i've seen in recent years has been the so-called de novo design of compounds where and i has been trained on a very large database of known drug molecules and then asked to invent some new truck molecules or truck candidate molecules that resemble What it's been trained in some way up. Put us still different enough to be innovative and useful. So they'll be props molecules that have same types of collectively and fiscal chemical properties up at an unless novel in terms of their chemical structure. So i think it's really those as we've been mentioning taking very large sets of data and bringing new discoveries are of them that you know you just couldn't do that with a a human person. Is that the. The task is too great it so easy for people to get stuck in their own knowledge space. If you like not be able to think outside that whereas the machine has no preconceptions if you like can come up with something that's truly novel. Yeah so the machine theoretically can know every chemical every drug that has been patented the formula for all of them and it can sift through that and find ones that haven't yet been tried but it can do more than that can at ugo it can also predict what kind of chemicals might actually hit a biological target. Yeah exactly so. I think that's sort of a especially with you. Know things that are going on in the world right now around. The pandemic is understanding mechanisms that can produce a specific kind of biological activity like like antivirals inhibiting well replication finding molecules that can sort of work along those pathways in all of this is based on leveraging existing data so using previous research Training up models we can learn relationships between things like structure and activity and then applying those models to new data. Or you know. Maybe drug already been approved to repurpose them as therapeutic agents. Yeah so bringing it back to your company Can you describe what see as does as kind of an elevator pitch sir. Sorta the short version here. So we're a division of the american chemical society being specialize in designing scientific information solutions that help organizations essentially be more efficient by leveraging the work and learnings of other scientists in our recent focus has gone beyond just our products like science finder which mary mentioned before Providing customized services to drive things like enhanced scientific data management increased scientific workflow efficiency are probably most relevant to the discussion here enabling high-value high high-precision initiatives required customized data sets coupled with scientific expertise

MrBeast Confirms 'Beast Gaming' League of Legends Team

"This is an article from from dadi. Sports it's an interesting one and it's about you know very famous youtuber. Here mr beast. The headline is mr beast confirms beast. Gaming league of legends team is happening. The content creator said the team won't be created until at least after the upcoming season however And so he's tweeted that he wants to own his own league of legends team And the us something in the works and it's not clear in which you know which region or anything like that but It's funny he says since his initial post industry voices raisch ranging from tsm to fanatic co saint matthews have reached out and expressed interest in collaborating with the creator was nearly forty six million subscribers on his main youtube channel right so we've talked a lot about celebrities going and starting sports teams right We have david beckham with guild and you have a bunch of nba stars who have all invested this is. This is a pure youtuber right. This is a guy was businesses digital content right now to begin with and wants to go by any sports team. Driest if you guys see this as a new i don't want to call it a trend but as a new kind of occurrence any sports something that we should be paying attention to. Because it's a first or if you think this is just more of the same like this is no different than a david beckham going and starting sports. I'm curious if you guys are looking at this as a unique occurrence or is just more of what's been happening lindsay ugo i. I don't want to jump down this one. What do you think i to be a paul thought. 'cause you have the most feelings about celebrities in the east space so now that it's a gaming celebrities at different so he's not really a gaming celebrity right duke celebrity. Get but he gave to. There's a simple reason why i like this better right. The guy has forty six million captive eyeballs. Right when this is your starting point. Yeah and and and and it hasn't like david beckham. They had to pay him twenty million dollars for whatever eyeballs he brought to the table. Right mr beast here is bringing his own. Eyeballs is forty. Six million. Which i'm guessing is bigger than anything. David beckham brings to the table in a in a medium. He understands right video digital entertainment. Like this is something. He's been very successful at. I like this right. Like i kind of like mr bean. Mr beast should be mr beast as a league of legends team owner. Right to me it. It makes more sense. David beckham has sixty five million instagram followers. Does he really cook. Oh k lindsay dropping. The i know real celebrity like the main. Yeah in my world. Mr is more important than they. David beckham paul. I don't think i disagree with you here. I think this makes a ton of sense. He's like the value like it's an eyeballs business. He's known how to drive eyeballs. You know the the only risk is that top list and how many organizations were hybrids or pure performance. Right like it's not just a matter like unless is going to be a faze clan and a game like league it's very cutthroat performance does matter more than other things like it's not a slam dunk that just because the guy knows how to make youtube videos. He can assemble a top roster and have them when things and that is going to be important. I also suspect this guy is smart enough to partner with people who know how to do that. Plain and simple. You know what i mean.

"Since we're gonna talk about since we're going to talk about movies, this movie debuted 40 years ago. I don't not sure never won any Oscars. We can talk about a different kind of odds. And that is the odds that will be in your favor when you exhibit Perhaps the greatest comedy motion picture of all time. This is going to make it look like Raiders of the Lost Ark. This is gonna be the kind of thing that your Children because they did. I could look up to you now. I never could before. I mean, we made a lot of cheap movies for you guys that made a lot of money. But now we have spent a little more than we're supposed to. Columbia Pictures has spared no expense to make this fine science fiction comedy So they're talking about is that's Dan Ackroyd and Bill Murray talking about ghost workers that they put that out to theaters to convince them to show the movie it was. It was something they set out to particularly independent theaters saying, Hey, this is Ah, a little something you might want to consider it your little Arthouse cinema. Now you had one guy was one of the Ghostbusters was a black guy. So there okay. Winston was black. And and then one day I was Jewish. I believe Well, Rick Moranis was in the movies, but I don't think I guess later on. He was kind of an ancillary ghostbuster, the Reynolds Jewish Council's a minority. For some reason. Reason this is important is and I'm reading for The Times. New Oscar standards require best picture contenders must be inclusive to compete if you wanna win. The Oscar for best picture, and I Do You have tohave you meet need to meet certain quotas to do it, Which is the way all great art is made. Certainly we all know Novels, songs movies television shows on the best artist made with quotas. So they came up with this a couple of months ago. This is AH attempt to be more divers to be eligible for best picture of film must meet at least two standards on across four categories of diversity on screen representation. Themes and narratives. So the theme of the movie has to be inclusive of a variety of groups. And it's under representative groups, including women, People of color LGBTQ, plus people and those with cognitive or physical disabilities. You have to touch on at least some of those not only in the cast and they're talking about the main cast. Um I'll read from what it says in The New York Times those standards record, one of the least one of the lead actors were significant supporting actors is from unrepresented, underrepresented racial or ethnic group. One of the lead actors are significant supporting actor. So in that group of people that the movie is all about, you can't have if it's World War, one movie a bunch of white guys, No. No. You gotta have. I don't know, eh? A black guy funded through the trench er. At least Marriott cheap and at least 30 books. They've sent a mariachi band with clearly Mexican people to entertain the troops. Shut them up, or we're going to be bombed by the Germans. Then the mariachis district and you never see them again. Ugo. There's your Oscar bait. Joe Getty Hollywood Quota consultant from No problem I got this. You gotta touch in coming of age story sitting in Norwegian filming Fishing Village, a 16 year old boy and girl and love trying to confront their Nazi past. Let's see. Let's have the Globetrotters come to town and play an exhibition game And on one of the dates they go See the Globetrotters check. $100,000 at least 30% of all actors in secondary in minor roles air from certain underrepresented groups and the main Jenny called the Globetrotters again, and the main storyline, theme or narrative of the movie has to be centred on an under representative group to qualify for a best picture Oscar nomination, And they went through the list of a bunch of movies that might not have made it that have one. You know lots of Oscars, including 1917, the World War. In film or the Irishman that came out last year and was a piece of crap, But in very was a great movie. It was bad, but it was long. I just I just Go and find this. Absolutely amazing. Yeah, on this is from liberals. People who think art is important people who send their kids to expensive colleges to get our degrees. They want to have constraints on art. The Liberals do? Yeah. Yeah, quotas. Good luck with that. My loathing of Hollywood. Well, it could get a little more intense as it turns out, but just If if if it didn't Indicate what James Lindsay has been talking about that this is coming on hard in society as a whole. I could just roll my eyes and move on said Good, Eat yourselves. You're cannibalizing yourselves, And I think it's hilarious. But it does mean that that sort of racialist thinking where everything is broken down to your identity group. You could only get a job if you're this or you can only be fired. If you're not that, or You know, you can only move into a neighborhood. We have quotas and neighborhoods quotas that everything that's dangerous. Is there any chance that any of the older liberals because always talking about the liberals over 50 seem to have a different view of these things? Like a Rob Reiner makes a movie with like what you're talking about here, man. Just those Like, really stick his thumb in the eye of the O R. You got something, you know, three hour long Goodfellow State movie, and then then you turns out Henry Hill's wife, at the end of it says Not only am I leaving you but I'm a lesbian check. We're down here getting a Hollywood quota consultant further preceding three hours. She's been a lesbian. You just didn't know that was your biases. There you go

How to Get Unshakeable Love and Unleashed Passion For More Than Just One Night with Stacey Martino

"Stacy. Paul say what's it's up to fire nation and share something interesting about yourself that most people don't know. Hey Okay so something interesting about something interesting so I think one of the things that people don't realize about us as we grow up on the East Coast but we recently decided to move to Boise Idaho and a Typically when we've told people as we were doing that the first thing they say is why why would you do that. Yeah and really. It's about living a life by design. We had been coming out here for a couple of years. For Russel Brunson's inner circle that were part of and started falling more and more allowed with the location and as we were looking for a house decided to move out here and I think the peace at most people don't know is that house were living in. which we I totally love is a house that none? None of us had ever seen before except Paul. He came out here on his own cows and we moved across the entire country sight unseen to move of our family to this side of the world. And we're so happy to be here but we moved here without even knowing what neighborhood it was in where we were going at. It's been quite an adventure. Really it really is the most amazing place. The greatest people is just beautiful. It's such an amazing place to be. It's a it's an under known amazing place to live and we're really the quality of life while I've always heard great things and have been out there a couple of times myself specifically just for some really kind of smaller Russell Brunson master my season throwing so I haven't got to spend a ton of time. Boise itself but it's always been like. Oh this is a cool place. Cool vibe cool energy and I totally get like you guys doing that kind of move move because you know this is the world we live in now. Fire nation is when you are financially independent when you are location independent you can make decisions and choices like this. And I can't tell you how how many people have come to visit me down here in Puerto. Rico Oh my God it's so beautiful. Down here is to Caribbean. The weather's unbelievable year round announced. You know obviously what you're going to deal with things like earthquakes and hurricanes but you know no place is perfect and then they're like wait a second you only pay a flat four four percent tax rate. Meaning you get to keep all of the money that you make. That's kind of the homerun because I'll tell you what when you start keeping the money you make things change so it's Kinda cool I actually. There's been a bunch of people. Russell Brunson inner circle. That have moved down here like my neighbors Jamie Amos. And he's an amazing dude and just a lot of great people bull doing great things so I love hearing you guys. Moving to Boise other people move to Puerto Rico. You know when I moved out to San Diego back in two thousand thirteen. There's a lot of people doing that because there's just such a beautiful location etc but then factor in the taxes and all that stuff. Give me the heck out of here. But that's for another episode. We are talking about how unshakeable love and unleashed passion for more than just one single night. Fire nation. I've already told you in T G with all the greatest we're talking about. I'm talking to stacy and Paul. They are absolutely creme de la Creme. Would it comes to stuff like this. So let's just break this down my friends give us your story break that down for us so so honestly we never started out wanting to do this or planning to be released interbank spurts of any kind are calling kind of found us as so many people in our life journey attempts to happen that way. It's hard to believe but it was twenty years ago twenty years. I know twenty years ago I remember like it was yesterday. Paul drove up the driveway. One night coming home and as soon as he got out of the car I could tell something was wrong. You ever have that moment. Jd where you look at someone's face you're like oh man what happened totally and in some instant. Somehow I knew like oh no. It's me there's something he's there's something about me and he said four words to me that I actually think are some of the most painful words in the human language he said. Hey we need to talk and so we sat down and he proceeded to tell me how no matter what he had done no matter what he tried. It wasn't working and as much as he cared about me. He didn't see any way for our relationship to work out and that he was leaving and as I was sitting there on the couch listening to him. Talk Tell me all the things that were wrong in our relationship. I couldn't disagree with any of them. It's not like I hadn't heard those things before so that didn't surprise me but what really shook me to my core. What surprised me was my reaction action because unlike the woman that I am today back then my nickname was actually the ice princess and it was super well-deserved so when the tears started rolling down my cheeks I was very unnerved and shocked to have that response and in a moment of what felt felt like a break down? I actually broke open and started to feel this flood of tears which allowed me to feel for the very the first time that I loved my husband and I know it's terrible to say but until that moment I knew I love being with him. I knew I you know I loved him. I didn't really know what that meaning of that. Man until that moment where I got to feel the depths of my love for Paul and as I was Tears turned into sobs and and I looked up at him. I realized wow. I didn't even know that humans really could feel love like this. I never had and I now realize I'm in love with Paul and he's walking out. I'm never going to get a chance to live in that love because I've ruined did because I don't know anything about relationship and I've ruin this just like every other relationship in my life and in that moment of desperation I figured I don't have any relationship skills was like that's how I got into that situation. I didn't know what else to do. And so I- begged my husband for a second chance and I said to him like Babe everything you're saying thing is one hundred percent. Sure I can't disagree with any of that crap. I don't know how to do this and I just have this feeling that this is not the best of me. This is not the best. Sti- CAN DO. I don't know what I'm doing. Just give me a chance to jump in with both feet and figure this out and then if you don't love the real me I'll will release you with love but just give me one more chance. Don't don't leave now out because I felt like I had just had an awakening and I just wanted a second chance and I know Paul had his own experience in that moment in Paul actually before you jump in here because I really WanNa make the most of the time that we have together and we have so much awesome Mr cover that we can only spend and so much time on your story and of course fire nation. I'm going to direct you to where you can learn more about both stacy and Paul and their entire story but Paul. Why don't you really in a concise way? Give give us your perspective on this and the move forward into this relationship you program because I mean just the results have been staggering. I mean the average. Divorce rate's fifty to seventy percent and you guys have had a one percent divorce rate in the ninety nine percent success rate over the past six years. So we're GONNA get to that and then some other really important things about relationships fire nation as as soon as Paul wraps up this part of the story yes so what happened was over that next year we short cutting the story of course of enough for me to stay but over that next year. I'm like Kowcase Ugo fix yourself like you. You work on this obvious in my mind thinking. There's nothing wrong with me as wrong as I was. But that's what we were back then and over a period of year. What seemed like a good week turned into a into a couple of months and I suddenly woke up one day and I found myself saying like I'm the grace relationship? I don't know what happened. She had transformed armed into like the most authentic version of herself. And I could feel it. I became a better person. I didn't I wasn't doing anything and we realized through that year. What happened was her? Transformation had had an not only transformed our relationship but transformed me as well to into a better version of me and that began the journey. Where we're like? What like this is amazing? I'm inspired and I said I feel like in the Anderson next. You like whatever you're doing I'm all in like I WANNA learn. I don't want to just be standing on the sidelines. I see you are amazing. You're happy I don't know what you did here but I want to be part of it. So that began our journey. You're too big transplant. List really about the discovery that accidentally that I discovered it only takes one person to transform a relationship. I was forced into discovering that now we've created our entire relationship development methodology in our eight step system dumb and all the tools in our toolbox and we have literally proven over and over and over again. The reason why we have such a huge success rate is because it only takes one Alan person to transform any relationship. We only work with one person when we do this work. And they're getting tremendous results because they're not limited by needing their partner to get on board or needing their partner to agree to do this work that combined with our methodology which is the complete opposite of what everything else is out out. There has really transformed this landscape and is enabled us to get this one percent divorce rate in our relationship. You program over the last six years which is really crazy just

Martin Scorsese Discusses 'The Irishman'

"Big happening right now is Martin. Scorsese's the Irishman which to me is the best movie that you can see out out there this year and so it's my pleasure to sit here and talk with the man himself. Mr Martin Scorsese. We've taken a field trip. We've come to your screening room tasers. I've seen so many films. Yes and it's always a treat. It's here where you show all the marvel films. Yes yes. I'm getting a bigger screen. It's it's going to exactly exact- pitching the sound system. That God will you get a lot of flack from that. He's do you care the s in the sense that I know those pictures. Some of the people making them To beautiful work and I really mean that I know what goes into that stuff The amount of work the amount of artistry that goes into a lot of it. I just find that ultimately for me. There was concern when I did Irishman for Netflix as possibly Altering or affecting in a negative way to theatrical experience. There is because Netflix only gives you a couple of weeks in about three weeks on this one. The problem here was that I pointed out that that I've made a number of pictures that only last week and a half in the theater. Anyway King of comedy was considered the flop of the year and entertainment it now button. Oh Okay so you said that and also having pointed at that No studio in Hollywood would make the picture. A netflix stepped up and it was a trade off or tradeoff. Have two three four weeks in a theater. Stays in a theater meantime and streamed so this is the way this picture had to be made eight when when issues he does really say. I'm not GONNA do this. Yes they give a reason for it. Yeah in a couple of reasons. There's period of nine years. One of the reasons was who's you know the the gotTa say that it's delicate issue but you know the box offices the names. Oh no well of course you had nobody in it. Well that's Al Pacino. They're saying at this time it really wants to see this kind of thing Having said that having said that there was also the issue that Heft Mo- almost half the picture they younger and they couldn't play younger and then we had the CGI come in And that's costly. That's cost and it was an experiment. You know it was an experiment so afraid of that no I know but but people have to give you money they they they have a right to question Mardi millions of dollars sure. Are you sure. Yeah absolutely but the thing about it too. Is that if that made me then think about what is theatrical experience when I was accused of of endangering at the ethical experience by by making this film at Net flicks And then I looked at the theaters and most of the theaters are playing superhero films. I said so. What's left? Do we have any theaters left for a movie. You know I mean the other movies that fine. It's it's it's not my thing and I I I. I tried over the years to watch some of the stuff and I lost interest a great deal of interest but in any event So at it's time for us to think about what constitutes cinema. Well now the idea that we talked about this over the years the idea of people watching the movie that you've you've made me the Irish epic and size. It just is so to watch it on my phone on my smartphone. That seem very small that I thought I certainly I could make I made a film. I made the past twenty some odd years. I made films both for television and for in terms of the screen size and the theater never for a phone. I don't know how to do it. I wish I could well. You don't have anything they take it and reduce use it so no I don't get it to light and I mean I know but films will be made for phones saying so even if they're not because that's where they can eventually wind up. Well I would suggest if you WANNA see one of my pictures on most films please. Mardi Mardi will phone an IPAD big IPAD. Maybe you know. But the essential thing and it goes to the Irishman to me completely lately. The last time that we talked about this kind of thing was the departed and win the Oscar. It lasts fortnum. Did so on predicting another but you know so what you know if you lose. Iou Twenty five cents so you have to pay up. I know people you know. Go People Deniro you but I still think people unless they have a gigantic screen. Their thing they have then the decision and making to decide to go to the bathroom or tickets his three and a half hours long. Yes so they can say well. I mean yeah I understand that too. I one of the things about a film three and a half hours in what this Netflix venue afforded us was. I wasn't sure about how should I put it. four theaters for home viewing wing Looking at it in sections looking at it for the end looking at the end I and going back to the beginning. It's kind of a picture. I think I find that when and I was running it here in this room I saw you know I have to see the whole thing again to figure out and after the first five minutes I was enjoying watching it now. I'm not saying because all I made it just it was an interesting Interesting a narrative structure and it got me involved each time. And so I I in a funny way I think I made it To cover all the bases in terms of how you can watch this picture. Ideally like you to go to a theater look at it on a big screen from beginning to end and and I know it's long because you gotta get up. You have to go to the bathroom and that sort of thing I get it but Also at home I think if you can make a night of it or after noon thereof you know and know that you're not going to answer the phone or you're not going to get up to much might work that's very often and you lose to me. You lose what you see by seeing a movie on a screen and you're in there and there are people with you like Sunset Boulevard. All those wonderful people out there in the dark are actually watching. That's right you right heart of the experience of Dino I wanna go we and changed that I know and it's going that's what's happening. That's what's happening so I took this chance to make a picture knowing that in my other films do like Ugo should be seen in three D Rarely is shown in three not particularly seeing it on TV now. So I know that it's going to have a subsidiary life in a sense or an ancillary life here. I said let's embrace that right away and let's see what happens. There are many ways to look at this film. I think

It All Starts with Data

"Hugh Welcome to the World Transformed Hayfield thanks a lot for having me it's absolute honored to be speaking with you well it's great to have you on you know I was reading over that list of topics there the streetlights smart parking intelligent traffic and security and we were talking about some of those things when you and I have met up at the Smart City oppose him last month and we you know there's there's a lot of discussions going on a lot of people throwing a lot of ideas around smart cities and one of the things I know list is that you've got a kind of a different take going into smart cities than maybe everyone else does when I when I had free matthews on the first installment of this is the first question to her was how do you define smart cities and I think I'll probably end up as out of everybody that I have on but I I really like where you were you start with him when I talked to Franny it's like when you talk about smart cities it all comes down to data but I would say your position is it all starts with Beta right absolutely and I mean just to answer the question about what what is a smart city I I mean I think first off all cities would would be a little a bit different in terms of their definition of a smart city but second to that I've never heard a single city called himself a dump city so interesting yeah we'll throw that out there you absolutely It starts with with data from my perspective when the smart city bom kind of kind of kicked off it was a premise that cities have a ton of data and they're not doing anything with it and so fast forward a few years and every city that I'm in I see you know solution the providers coming in and they're selling hardware whereas from my perspective I WanNa understand and I think it's important for the city so understand what are you have to day and look at the look at the number one number two number three initiatives and start with the data that you currently have and then move forward with what improvements you would like to make to to solve for the initiatives that you have for the for the stadium and its citizens absolutely well I one of the things that I found interesting in our discussion was yeah you can you can look around and see that there are a host of solutions offered for smart cities and some of its hardware and some soft solutions and people have while they have methodologies there's there's a whole lot of there's a whole lot of infrastructure showing up in support of smart cities but it does kind of come down to this question of well okay so you've got a solution have you identified the problem I right do you know what problem you're trying to solve with smart cities maybe people need to take take a step back and look at that when I absolutely I mean it was you know initially it was streetlights everyone you know jumped on the re lamping yes it is of upgrading the street lights to led's and then connecting them and then from the connecting of the street lights now the ability to deploy other sensors and and things of that nature and and while I'm not in disagreement with that I think that that's not the city's biggest problem the cities themselves have have a number of challenges starting from the inside in terms of the vertically integrated organization engage with themselves all the way to the OT side of the of the world where you're you're you're deploying all of these Sensors for people owning and vehicle counting and and what have you environmental monitoring and everything of that nature but again I when I look at it it's Oh city have to have a vision for what they seek to achieve and then they have to start asking the right questions of other solution providers to ensure that these solutions are actually going to solve my problem or move me in the right direction so I kind of I kind of look at it whereas the solution providers are understanding that there's problems in the city and they think that well if you if you deploy mine hi solution we will provide you these new insights and I would argue that in a lot of instances there's data already available within the city now it may not be it'd be quality data that that you're looking for but you should start with that to identify where you need to augment and add or improve because whatever else you're gonNA get from any new system you put in place or any especially any new device you put in place of Ugo Smart Street lamps or Smart Street lights thanks what are they going to do what they're going to produce a bunch more data you're going to have even more and you haven't figured out who the daddy you got yeah exactly and and on top of that if if if I'm a city I'm GonNa see I O or I'm the city manager and I have these vertically integrated organizations and street lights are deployed so public works is looking at the street lights and someone else's looking at something else and then the it department looking at something else and I don't have the data fusion that is going to deliver to me a a single pane of glass which I can say oh I see that the street lights are are operating or day burners I have I had these other things but there's a lot other activity that's taking place how do you how do you utilize that data to invoke either different behaviors or salts for public safety issues or things of that nature across the board and then provide those insights to the vertically integrated organisations that need it right right it just it it makes a lot of sense well let me ask you this what one of the things that I've been hearing a lot about is this focus on regions rather than rather than city said talking about talking about smart regions it was one of the ideas that kept popping up at the symposium am so I I guess this is kind of a two part question one is why would we think about regions rather than just cities is questionable one and number two is if we do that it doesn't the data issue become that much more complex because then we're dealing with data from a lot of different municipalities or jurisdictions or what have you you know that that is a huge topic and and here's a let me give you an example one of the first cities that I worked it's Palo Alto we go through and and we help them in terms of using the data to provide visualizations for the traffic you know as a monitoring aspect of of the solution and we improve the traffic flow there but ah I go to the neighboring city mountain view right Sunnyvale or Santa Clara or down to San Jose I don't have that same experience and so it becomes very clear that that and I'm not saying that city by city is not is not good it's it's great every city needs to have had these initial it is and and and work being done but if I have a regional approach and we solve the challenges associated with procuring Senate and we solve the challenges with a collective vision and we solve the challenges of data utilization and what data is going to be used for what solutions now I get to have a an experienced going from city to city that is the same and that has to be part and parcel to The conversation of of improving cities overall

I don't know the jury's still out that's suggesting that it's not reliable you know this is suggesting that your competition this other product is not a quality product that's not cool and I'll tell you why it doesn't work why you shouldn't do number one you should not ever do that to your competition because you've heard the saying be close to your friends but closer to your enemies while they're not your enemy sodas speak because they share the marketplace with you one day they may want to acquire you one day you may want to acquire them so drawing blood in this battle is not a good idea number two the reason why it doesn't work and it's just bad for your business is that I find it very offensive when I see a comparison page at totally trashes the competition and just as nasty and is making claims that they can't back up is a total turn off and I don't respect the company anymore I actually leave the website and say you know what if that's how they treat other people in their even their competition I'm not sure I want to do business with this company I'm not sure I wanNA give them my money there's something wrong with their culture the second don't is you don't highlight any positives about your competition a lot of people that just say we'd you all this and the competition does not do this the only highly of the things that they do that the competition doesn't do but they don't talk about the competition does do and the reason why this is a big don't is because it's just not believable it's just not believable when you have let's say a comparison char and your side of the Char has all these green check marks and they have all read exes when you're just highlighting things are going to give you a green check mark and the competition red x it can go both ways the competition can do the same thing and flip the script on you instead of being so binary be honest and give credit where credit's due for example with our software webinar initial comparison age with zoom we pray zoom for being a great meeting software and if you WANNA run meetings one on ones we actually recommend them that's their superstar breath but when it comes to one too many or few too many running a Webinar and you need marketing and registration pages in email marketing built in this is where we're better this is where you want to choose us the potential customers are GonNa see then say that's fair that makes sense and I trust this company more because they're being fair so highlighting any of the positives of your competition is a bad idea or don't is third party negative what I mean by that well maybe you won't say something negative your competition but if you insert something from a customer let's say a testimonial that says ah I love product X. I used to use this product and it was absolute crap even though it's a real testimony Lou even though it may be factual have some class don't do that to your competition I am sure you've had customers that had a bad experience in their opinion were you dropped the ball by mistake could've been customer service it could have been a glitch could have been didn't get their package on time something were customers are satisfied a happens to all of us the best of us how would you feel if that customer and their story of how things went wrong in your business was on your competitions website not cool last don't is tit for tat a lot of people say hey my competition is nasty they're bad mouthing left and right they're doing this and that they're saying untrue things I totally can relate to that but it doesn't mean that you have to stoop down to that level like Michelle Obama when they go low ugo hi you have a culture you have a standard and you will resonate with those that have the same standard and culture now the dues are obviously the opposite you want to be honest you want to be Fair WanNa show your unique selling proposition and without trashing your competition and a good way to kind of gauge if you're doing this right if you showed your comparison page to your competition to the CEO uh of that company do you think they would say this is absolutely horrible I'm suing you this is ridiculous or do you think they're going to say you know what that hurts but fair enough you're not saying something that I can disagree with so I want to give you some examples of some really good comparison just so you can see what I'm talking about the first example is web flow I talked about web flow in an earlier episode. This is a up and coming website builder website design type of tool and they have competition like square space and wordpress and shop affi- they're in a market that super crowded but if you check out their website or you can just Google web flow versus wordpress or web flow versus squarespace look at their page it's light hearted it's transparent it's honest this is on web flows comparison page for squarespace this on their site web flow site is saying this thus squarespace squarespace template approach makes it easy for anyone to have an manager website that's what they're saying about squarespace it it's true it's positive why would they put that on their site because what are they comparing it to the himselves what do they do that's different from squarespace they're not template based they allow you to customize anything and their designer friendly so if you're a designer and you like things to be a particular way you don't work in the confines of a template you're going to resonate with with Flo hey I like what full better because that's what I want cool templates are cool and everything but that's not for me good for you not for me and that's a great way to create a comparison page

"ugo" Discussed on The Cashflow Show

"And we are right back into cash flow show with the wonderful Google Iran's I'm Clayton Coke and I'm still asking the questions and Ugo the question I wanted to ask you and this is a question or the set of questions that comes up now is that we everyone so nobody escapes this unless unless you have a brain freeze so the main question is what is your advice to anyone thinking of stuff ching a business my advice is to believe in yourself but do your homework right and make sure that you're ready to do the hard work associated with building business and it's not just doing the work you love like obviously I would love to just sell pretty houses all day long at at the end of the day that's why I got into it but building a business is so much more and one of the things about it is you have to get your business exposed right you have to find your customer every business has to find their customer and whereas multinationals can pay for advertising the rest of us have to do it off of word of mouth working meeting people getting referrals getting recommendations and that's the grind element of it so you have to be prepared for the grind you and I met through networking I've stayed in touch I followed up I do emails I do newsletters I do social media there's so much more to doing the core work you want to do so I I would say to people you have to be prepared for the grind and believe in yourself I think having been on this journey for me it's almost like you pull a string in terms and one of the quotes I like is you know your business grows as much as you do and if you're not prepared to put your south out there take rhys fall you know be persistent be diligent be perseverance you're gonNA give up because it is so daunting you're gonNA fail you're GONNA have disappointments I've had challenges a pat and I'm overwhelmed a lot of times but if you can't it to I believe in what I'm doing and I believe in it not just in what I'm doing but how I'm doing it right so anybody can sell your home but it's also how you make people feel at the end of it do you make people feel like this person cared about me and my family and why we wanted to sell always have that conversation what is selling for you what does it mean to you if we can help you do this how do we make that journey that process better when I show homes you you have to understand the home the feature I do that homework not pass it on to someone else so I guess my advice is do work you're passionate about because if you don't love that work you're going to give up but recognize that there's so much more associated with it if you really want to do it at a high level and be successful at it excellent thank you so we've also another set of questions that we ask everyone and just for Melissa's guess often get these questions in advance not all questions because quite a few of my sleeve here but they get certain questions in advance and these are the questions that they do get the first one is what is your favourite film and why pretty woman jumps out to me I don't know why I think it's just fun feel good movie and perhaps journey of romantic comedy and yeah I mean is somebody who probably becomes a butterfly the end but is you know gritty Got Spunk on keenest to her and yeah I like the story what I find fascinating about that is a film that this lady is working in particular sweet it's not accountants cash logistics and that's the Rosemead why so many women I always ask you do you know what she does of course we watched a designated time okay for it up some pretty woman is and your favorite book my favorite book I would say Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison and I just I think it's a beautiful story I love her way of writing and this journey of this family and yeah just start to finish I think it's a pretty powerful a book if you don't know Tony Morrison a highly recommend her work and Saga Solomon definitely sits up there song of Solomon by Toni Morrison and the last question that we always ask us what is your favorite album stroke single and why oh Gosh there's there's so much I like but when you come back to the most I come back to a lot of stevie wonder quite like his fingertips song but you know there's a lot that makes me get up and dance I quite like Afro Beats Music as well Hugh Masekela was South African a musician he's got a really nice just music genre that I quite find danceable but the lyrics are great as well so about fitness fellas up there absolutely even those beyond don't he's he's a dance master but also lyrical and was obviously the his his pros were incredible. I mean he was really speaking truth to power as far as the the powers that be so excellent okay some very good now what I wanted to move onto he sees that social media now I fully us on instagram and mine's Graham and please people follow me on instagram my life is just he's this is an appeal it was I know we're in the business I know we're in the late payment business but we need love Ca- this is just an appeal thank you anyway moving but basically instagram is fantastic and the reason why I love your instagram is that you manage to get a property in their social in there you manage to get almost if an alien came down and said to me I want to know about the tourist site of London I point instagram and it's amazing tell me how you fall in love with instagram and how did you embrace it well it's not just instagram but we are on facebook as well but I think one of the things I've learned through Keller Williams as people do business with people they know like entrust right but you also have to be authentic to who you are when I moved to London absolutely fell in love with the African arts seen our team culture a lot of things and so and again remember if we have more that American realtor model then the idea is people are going to buy in to me and part of me was like well I don't really want to show that social side because I don't think people are GonNa take me seriously I want them to see more kingside and Keller was like no they need to see your social side because ultimately you're going to be working with people and they need to enjoy working with you and because I have kind of this love of London and culture I felt that I could show that off in a way that I'm doing all these amazing things or get these opportunities to do these amazing things then why not show it off in a way that's authentic and so that's been part again that's what I talk about putting yourself out there so my natural inclination was never to really be on social media but if I could engage stay in touch with people show off a lifestyle right and ultimately property goes quite nicely with the lifestyle because people are not just buying a home they might be buying community they might be buying a city there might be buying an area of London and our model is I'm not area restricted so I get around London quite a bit and so if I could show that off in a way that people find interesting then you're also staying top of mind right because you're remembering and I can't keep shoving a property in your face every day nobody cares right because that's about you it's not about engaging people I think that's very true because as I found that in in the business that we have a pr the problem that we have is is that people don't want to see pictures of for people crying and saying oh my life is ruined because my businesses falling apart people don't want to see that they don't want to see me standing outside the call that scares people you know so it it's important for people to see that we are approachable people that we do have a business that is for the betterment for want of a better expression of of the people that we work with so it it's difficult to get that balance because you don't want to be seen as a continuous Paul personally think people think man you don't doing work eh but you have to show another side to you and that's interesting she can also relate tips to what you do as if people can help see advice and guidance that's also quite helpful so again it has to be a mix of those things where it reminds people your personal bowl you're you're approachable but here's some nuggets of what you've learned if perhaps you've worked with someone and here's a particular story people like case studies they need to see themselves in Oh that's a scenario where I might fall into that's helpful advice so for question for me now is what is being your biggest success in terms of your business I mean I could point to a selling particular home and that's fine but I think what most proud of is that we're thriving in a tough market it and I think you know sometimes it's just being purposeful and growing business in challenging market and so for me the fact that six seven years into this business as an independent agent is what I'm most proud of because everything else is about like a one shot deal but longevity for me and staying committed to what I set out to do is what I'm most proud of I think that really resonates with me I think the thing is when I see and I go to events now and I see so few people that I started off with we've been in business now seventeen years so we've seen a lot and so many he people just disappear fell by the wayside or sometimes people who have a resurrection and Light Lazarus they're back but for the most part people when they gone they're gone and so that's that's quite sad so to a certain extent you are in a position where what you've done these that you've made that transition Shen from that full-time corporate world to being an independent realtor real estate person in what is a very challenging very difficult market I remember when I first bought a property in the early ninety s and man you could sell anything you could sell it shoebox and people would buy and I think I bought one of those you know and it made me very very aware of house thing and why property I mean I live in South East London and think there was a Gig by a geico tyler the creator rap artists and it was welcome and people were giving Peckham such a hard time and I.

Apple, Goldman Sachs And Twitter discussed on MarketFoolery

"Apple's new credit card is available. This is the one announced earlier this year. That's backed by goldman sachs. I have not seen an actual card. I've seen pictures enough. It is a gorgeous gorgeous titanium card that comes with a couple of warnings including this one and i'm quoting straight from apple's website. Some and fabrics like leather and denim might cause permanent discoloration sounds like a problem. Thank god wallets aren't made of leather exactly exactly a lot of or i should say a decent amount of blowback and ridicule coming apple's way and yet i i. I don't know i look at this. I've thought about it over the last sixteen hours or so because last night you and i were going back and forth on twitter a little bit. I've been reading some more stuff today. I don't know i think i've already changed my mind because initially i thought this is ridiculous and maybe in some ways it is but it kind of seems in some ways on brand for apple and by that i mean apple is a premium brand. It wants to remain a premium brand and if part of the cost of doing in business is getting ridiculed for stuff like this. They're going to say well. That's fine. It's important to us aesthetically. We have the nicest looking physical credit card i. I think you said it exactly right. I mean i think it's something that is very easy to make fun of. <hes> you know that's one of the best parts of this job drive. I fund which we always appreciate and i mean it's so i mean i do. I love the idea that apple is pursuing the payments business. I mean they've obviously done it <hes> for for a little while here with apple pay and they're going to continue that relationship on through apple cart i mean i i liked that strategy. I think it makes sense. I agree with him pursuing it. This is just one of those things that we get to make fun of it. Is i think more or less on brand for them. It is one of those things that just kinda makes you feel like all right. This is about as much as like intake. Take like it's almost like they're you know they're trying to present. This reinvention of the credit card which to me seems. I'm very silly. Now i had a lot of questions <hes> regarding the card and actually people single why bother with the card you know i mean just use your phone. Take your phone. It and i mean i i appreciate that i mean apple pay makes it very easy to pave their phone. <hes> you have to remember. There are a lot of people out there in the world that really prefer to use contactless payments. I mean just taking in your credit card in just boot swiping a right by the device urges plunking on top of the vice serna reason you go about your very ugo veterinary way. Now i mean like like i personally would prefer probably contact over an apple bay but i use both i mean it's not a matter of saving time versus one of the other. It's just a matter of what you find easier at the given in time <hes> so i i think it's going to be key that they continue putting a card out i mean so. I don't think they should be eliminated. I like the fact that they want to put out a piece of artists as a car. I mean it really don't think there's any problem with it. It's just really easy to make fun of and that's that's you know that every once in a while you need to do that right <hes> i mean there. There is a spot on the website. There is a page on the website titled you know how to safely store and carrier titanium applecart how to clean your apple card like it gives you a lot of instructions there so it's for real it does feel like it could be straight out of the onion but this is straight out of apple instead. You know what let's give them credit because certainly when something like the the iphone came along the ipad and <hes> people said wow this. I'm paying for this device so i want to spend a little bit more money to protect protect it. Yeah get an iphone case ipad case someone right now is hard work on the apple card case or or the apple applecart cleaning kit right like in the spray and the little shammy that comes with i mean hey anything can happen right. I mean but i like i do agree with you. This is right on brand for them. I don't fault them for it. You know they get to take the good with the bad we can make fun of it but hey i gotta believe this is probably the prettiest is credit card out there. Now that matters to you cool if it doesn't well there are plenty of choices.

From wondering, I'm David Brown, and this is business daily on this Wednesday June twenty sixth. We've said it before and boy, is it true Americans love their dogs all the way to the cash register just considered shui the pet food delivery company when it went public on June fourteenth shares shot past its opening price by sixty percent as hungry investors gobbled up everything they could the company, which is archly owned by PetSmart raised a billion dollars in its IPO the market now values chew at about fourteen billion, even though the company has never turned a profit and it faces a growing pack of pretty ferocious rivals. That's right. The Amazon like e Taylor sales doubled every year between twenty fourteen and twenty seventeen and zoomed even higher last year to three point five billion dollars. But it is still. Losing money as one stock analyst said those losses are getting smaller, but still, it's reminiscent of stock values during the internet, bubble when prophets briefly didn't seem to matter. But this year all IPO's are not the same meaning investors. See something in shui that they're not seeing in other recent public offerings like Uber's which flopped back in may. So what did she do? Earn a blue ribbon. Well the company claims to be the country's largest online pet retailer. It sells all things that your four legged companions get ever need from food to pet medications to birdseed, and even grooming supplies for your horse about sixteen hundred brands sit on its virtual store shelves, since it launched its shipped one hundred million orders, a good number of those subscriptions repeat shipments that take the pain out of forgetting the lizard food at the pet store. It's also capitalizing on our trend toward acting like our furry feathers. Three and scaling companions are essentially our children smart business move since pet ownership is growing, like crazy, particularly among millennials. We lavish so much attention and money in our shit, Susan Siamese that the market for pet products has doubled since two thousand five it's now worth about seventy billion dollars a year. We even spoil our pets during downturns in that's important. The market continued to grow steadily during the great recession. This is not to say that shoe is growth could continue unconstrained where one company discovers a lucrative market, so others last month. Walmart opened an online pharmacy called pet Rx dot com, which delivers any of three hundred brands of pet meds to your door presumably its own vets are prescribing. Those beds, WalMart has twenty one veterinary clinics in it stores now and his opening another one hundred by next spring. It could be a dog fight between chewy and WalMart. There are still a lot of questions about chewy. Is it overvalued will it hold its own against a growing pack of rivals. When will it turn a profit and? Oh, yeah. Does it company?

"VAT ska welcome to the daily grind. How are you today? Hey, Colin, I'm great. I'm super excited to be here. Thanks for having me. Of course. We're all super excited that you're here and Jenny if you wouldn't mind say for some people being first introduced to you today, just speaking a little bit more of who you are. And what it is that you do. Awesome. So I'm currently in Bali just before we started recording them, and I work with Saudi ups and small businesses on creating better and more efficient ones. So what does that look like specifically work with the COO is the founders and help them get rid of the overwhelm create better performing teams, and basically give them back hours in the week to focus on what they want to focus on that could be the future vision make more money or simply out more with the families. How long have you been doing this for Jenny? As I was a corporate consulting for three years. And then I realized well, maybe it's time to switch because I wasn't really living the amazing life that always dreamt off living, and then I quit Ugo pretty much. Yeah. Pretty much at Yoko and often during this over. Yeah. So we were in corporate consulting. What were you doing before was this was this something where you knew you were going to get into consulting? Like, did you go to school for that? Whatever your story there. It's really interesting. I think my entrepeneurship journey started. When I was really young. You know, we're like does us this question. I what do you wanna be? When you grow up. I think I was asked that around the age of five, and I said be a boss. I think that very literally. So like when I was like twelve I created my own babysitting agency, and when oil is very very small probably like around the age of four or five I still at my sister's toys at flea markets and stuff like that. But I think then went to school into college. I kind of forgot about all of this, and I was like super focused on like climbing the corporate ladder. So I studied business and then did a masters degree in corporate finance, and I don't know like for me. It was just the expected thing of like working in corporate. And that's what I ended up doing. Got you. So when you were in corporate consulting, what were you consulting on what we helping businesses with specifically? Yes. So for the first two years I worked on IPO, and like strategy and company valuations so a lot of the strategic things and Ashley that I realized that's not really the direction that I want to go into. So I ask within my company, I kind of gave him an ultimatum either quit or you let me switch departments. And they did because they didn't want me to quit because like employee retention is a big thing. So I then switched on working in the innovation department. And there we worked with a lot of startups on setup growth in strategy and all of that, and yeah that made total sense. And that was exactly what I wanted to do because it was the Pufang pathway for me to quit and do my own thing you've been doing that for two years when you decided that this wasn't for you. You wanted to branch off in your own? How long have you? How long were you thinking of doing that? So I was really strategic about it after two years in corporate consulting, my dad's very suddenly passed away. And I realized like oh, wow. With the way, I'm currently living. My life is such a waste like I don't wanna do that anymore. And then I thought well, what will be the best way to acquit me for the life that I wanna live. And that's when

It does point to resolution so Sargo which appears to be the mall one has aid ten eighty by twenty two twenty display and it has entering night, obviously with four gigs of ram. So there were some rumors that these would have six gigs of ram. I don't know who believe that. Because I don't think Ugo would make a budget phone with more ram than its flagships. But that made the round it is Google. I don't know Google doesn't dunk on it self that often. Yeah. That way I think that would be seriously unless except for when they released the pixel buds.

Google CEO in Washington Hot Seat

"Appearing at a hearing before the House Judiciary committee on Tuesday. Google CEO, Sundar Pichai fielded tough questions about various things, including Google's data privacy practices and its handling of disinformation campaigns by foreign actors here talk more about the big event on Capitol Hill Tuesday, joining us from San Francisco is the Wall Street Journal's Douglas MacMillan. Hey, Douglas, I lot on Google's played here. We'll get to sort of the the best of the playlist here. But one thing you noted in your piece was that a lot of the discussion had to do with political bias. I mean, the the setting is right for that. I guess, but let's talk about that Sundar Pichai meets before lawmakers. What does he have to say as a Google has the world's most used search engine? It's dominant in the world of internet. Search and lawmakers specifically Republicans in Washington have been talking a lot lately about their concerns. That Google is using that dominance to push the voices of liberals and suppress the voices of conservatives. This is something that Google has the mentally denied nonetheless. This is an argument that Republicans in the house sawn opportunity to push and we heard from many lawmakers who are citing various studies, citing various reports suggesting that there is some truth to this idea that if you search for something on Google their results, you see are likely to be favorable to Democrats and liberals and suppress the forces of Republicans and conservatives, so how does Sundar Pichai defend this. Specifically this, you know, Google's impartiality specifically. It's actually a pretty hard thing to defend I think that's one thing that was filed lighted in in the hearing is that, you know, Google has its secretive algorithms are what comes up come up with the search results that you see and. For competitive reasons. And for the reason that they don't want people to game the search algorithm. Google doesn't disclose many details about how it search engine works. And how it orders those search results? So therefore, it becomes very difficult for this company to defend allegations. Like, these ones that that there's some kind of bias inserted into its algorithm frequently when he was asked about observed of bias, he simply said that you know, you have to take my word for it. I didn't go far enough to appease a lot of the concerns that we heard from lawmakers and part of it is the fact that Google has this black box algorithm and the irrefutable to open up that black box you mentioned specifically disclosure or lack thereof that brings us to another hot topic of discussion that is transparency not for Google. But you know, it's something that a lot of big tech is dealing with. What is Google have to say with regards to the criticism? It faces in terms of just not being transparent enough or. Yeah. A lot of that criticism Macedonia with data privacy in this is a big a big topic. In Washington all year. Most of the criticism has been directed at Facebook. It's competitor in online advertising, but Ugo has a great variety of different types of data in its systems. And there were a lot of questions from congress about what it's doing to protect that data. I think that what we heard from Sinndar. Dr was a commitment to get better at explaining to users. How it's collecting their data. I think that there are some real pointed questions about you know. Yes, your users are opting into a lot of these services. But they don't know unless they read detailed privacy policies in unin are able to understand them. They don't know what they're actually opt into. And they aren't always aware that maybe, you know, some third party app is monitoring their location when they go to the doctor's office. Or when you know, they send an Email to a confidential connection so giving what we did hear from Google CEO is a commitment to be more clear and help users understand how the data's being. News, right. Especially in light at the latest with, you know, Google, plus the hits just keep coming in terms of this whole topic. Another one is business practices with China. There's so many things to get into here in terms of what Google has to answer for. I'm wondering where those discussions led especially considering the current climate. Yeah. This is probably the most evasive topic for sooner Pichai, he was repeatedly asked probably by half dozen lawmakers, you know, essentially, the same question are you going to launch a search engine in China that will filter your search results in accordance with the Chinese government's wishes and essentially he did not have a good answer for that. And it I think it was conspicuous that he didn't have again good answer. He had a pretty scripted line which stopped short of answering that that real question his scripted line. Was you know, we currently do not have a search engine there. He stuck to the script. But we will you know, he committed to being transparent with congress. On any progress there? So I think the something definitely people are going to want follow up on. And he's now committed in sworn testimony that Google is going to be transparent about any development towards the Chinese search engine, right? And I I wonder about the follow up in worth things go from here because there has been talk about you know, perhaps Google has trouble facing such criticism. And I wonder if everything that went down on Tuesday, maybe exemplifies that I just wonder how everyone feels was a dissatisfying meeting were lawmakers satisfied and discography like a got through it. I mean, what what happens from here where does that? How does the dust? Settle. Sadly, I think that this is going to be considered a success for Google because they avoided looking like they were doing anything to controversial likely said earlier a lot of the questions focused on these questions round conservative bias, which frankly that those line of that line of questioning didn't go very far. I didn't dig in very far the questions about data. Privacy. Which were I think more thought provoking and intriguing there there wasn't. There was a lack of detailed follow up. And there was a lack of willingness for sooner p tries part to explain in detail how data collection regime works. So I think from an onlookers perspective and from a user and a consumer of Google services. I wouldn't be satisfied with what just happened with the the amount of accountability. That was on display. However, I think for everybody in that room there. They will walk away satisfied a thing. Google sees its leader and soon MP CHAI having survived his first big test in Washington. He's you know, he's not a political player. You know? I'll be I'll be calling around lawmakers this week to see what they think what their reaction was. But, you know, largely I think they're going to be satisfied that they at least they got, you know, Google CEO into Washington, they got him to testify under oath. And you know, they got some level of accountability for. Company that they, you know, a lot of people in Washington I felt like as he faded accountability this year.

Meet Gridwise, The Assistant for ALL Rideshare Drivers

"Suspect. Most of you listening have taken a ride in an Uber or lift a will know how search pricing can help increase. The drivers earnings. Have you ever thought about what Tom events and traffic reports floor arrivals, weather, and all those other factors could actually help increase. A driver's earnings to say if we do have an Uber driver or lift driver listening to this podcast right now. I was driving around put yourself unavailable, turn of evil that you're going to find a lot about you. In today's episode because Pittsburgh base grid. Wise is an apt to veer I'm lift drivers are all using to get live updates on essential things are happening around us. that they drive for testing. Now, have you do research on Ugo is my understanding. It's that grit. Wise is an Uber via an lift dravis could all use to get live oak nights just about everything from events, Tom events. Ending traffic reports floor arrivals Webber so much more an anything essentially will help increase their earnings. But could you just help listeners understand the kind of challenges these drivers face everyday? An ultimately how you'll helping them with grit Roy's. Yeah. I mean, there's definitely a a lot of challenges that people don't realize that drivers are dealing with on a daily basis, and those challenges exist on and off the road as really before you even get out on the road is as a driver, you're you're trying to make sure that you're going to be most effective with your time. And so with that being said is you're trying to keep up with everything that's going out and in the city and trying to plan ahead for when's the best time for me to be driving based off of my schedule. My personal preferences of where I like to drive, and there's not a lot out there. That's really helping you understand. What are what are all the different types of events? Ending traffic reports how many people are coming in and out of the airport. What's happening at train stations and bus stations. And what's the weather? Look like, there's there's a whole lot of factors that are going into impacting your opportunities out on road, and essentially how effective you can be with your time earn as much as possible. So really the challenges is being able to plan ahead. But once you're out on the road is you may drop, you're, you know, you're taking a lot of rides from point a to point B, and you you can be taken anywhere in the city. And so any given time you're dropped off in some point of the city. Let's say you're taking from the city to the suburbs. And at that point, you're asking yourself. Ok we'll do I stay where I'm at do. I go back to the city. Do I go to the airport? Where should I position? Where's my next move? And it's just keyed at a in paramount that that like you need information. That's readily available to help you make those decisions on a constant basis. And I think the third challenge I'd like to point out is the fact that all these drivers are independent contractors. They're driving for drug for multiple. All services at one time over seventy five percent dry for lease to services and with that being said is there balancing between multiple apps constantly as they're out on the road. And so the challenge is being able to adequately keep track of your performance as a rideshare driver. And an Esa challenges if you're turning liftoff for two hours and turning Uber on for three hours, and or bouncing between them more frequently, you know, neither one of them can tell
