"Is probably at this point. Completely swamped here. So let's talk about that. Because you guys are your core business has revolved around a treatment. You haven't phase three trials for catheter related bloodstream infections. That's a phase three right now. That's correct. So we have way have a product called mental Block, which is an antibiotic lock. Solution for treatment. Catheter related bloodstream infections. What that means is These are cancer patients who have been who are long term catheters. Those catheters are a lifeline for them. What most people don't realize about the catheter is the catheter, so it's surgically implanted, usually around a collarbone area and then threatened to the heart and to the superior Vena cave, where we'll deliver all the important medications that that patient needs. Including chemo, as well as nutrients and other forms of supplements. What happens over time is that catheter could get infected catheter is infected patient gets infected. That's a potentially deadly problem because of the fact that these people, these patients already immuno compromised to begin with. And today, and the only standard of care for an infected catheter is to remove it and replace it with the new catheter. What will happen will be the first Catholic original catheters removed surgically. The second catheter is usually on a replacement catheter is place somewhere down in the groin area and threaded back up into the heart area that will again Clauses about a 20% adverse event profile. It can be potentially deadly as well for the patients and what we have is a solution that can be placed into the catheter locked for two hours a day for.
St. Clare of Assisi Novena - Day 4
"Annot Vena to Saint Clair Day four. From a letter to intrude of brew. This labor of ours is brief. But. The reward is eternal. Let the noises of the fleeting world and its shadow not confound you. Let the empty spectres of the deceiving world not drive you mad. Shut your ears to the whispers of hell and strong breath down its attempts against you. Willingly bear adverse evils and let provident goods not puff you up. For the one requires faith. The other demands it. What you promised, God faithfully render and he will repay you. Dear Saint Clair. As a young girl, you imitated your mother's love for the poor of your native. Assisi. Inspired by the preaching of Saint Francis, who enthusiastically of his Lord Jesus Lady Poverty. You gave your life to Jesus at Nineteen years of age allowing Saint Francis to cut off your beautiful hair. And Invest You with the Francis can happen. All through your life, you offered your great suffering for your sisters the poor Clare's and the conversion of souls.

Thank you for the gift of Saint Clair. Through your intercession please here and answer my prayer in the name of Jesus your son. Man.
"The underworld. Today's quote comes from Salvatori profanity. An influential captain in the most famous Colombo crime family based in New York City for fought. She's actions were ruthless but they were necessary to keep the families disputes away from authorities. Nowhere was this sentiment more apparent than in his famous quote. Goodfellas don't sue goodfellas goodfellas kill goodfellas cheese. Father Joe was the original head of the crime family before his death in nineteen sixty two in the years. Following the family was taken over by Joseph Colombo. The younger prophecy never expressed regret over. Not taking over for his father. He knew it was best if he worked outside of the limelight. Things were easier to accomplish in the shadows while Prophet. She never led the family. His role was important in keeping the peace profound. She was known to be a great mediator. Inter family disputes and was called in to squash any problems for example in nineteen ninety two a mob lawyer in Philadelphia named Salvatore threatened to sue a mobster named carmine Franco Avena accused Franko of skimming money off the top of their Waste Management. Racket without telling him as if the accusation itself wasn't enough to stir up trouble. Avena wanted to take the matter to court. Never the best idea for a criminal organization. The fifty-six-year-old flew in to settle the dispute at the behest of the Colombo family Ci Son was also married to a Venus daughter so in addition to helping the crime family he was protecting his own family profonde. She begged Wien not to file a civil suit. Exposing the entire business in front of a judge would lead to more charges against everyone but Avena was steadfast. That's when pro fauci uttered his famous quote to survive the mob. You had to avoid the courts. This wasn't how things were run instead. Violence was the law of the land. Profonde she didn't want Vena killed. He was family but if he didn't relent. That would be the only way forward. It took some more working over but Avena down. He and Franco settled their deal out of court weeks. Later the problem was federal officials. Had bugged. Evine is office. Every word of his conversation with Prof Archie was heard and some of prophecies comments were used to pin his men on a slew of charges. It was the biggest and most ironic slip up of his career. But he himself ultimately didn't face prosecution he was able to retreat back into the shadows just the way he liked it after a few more years of peacekeeping by the early two thousands prof
Feel Good Habits with Jordan Samuel
"If they're another habit before I to he question super easy but honestly for me and I don't know about you or anybody else but Vena former dancer loving music and for me. My like outlet used to be even jogging on the treadmill doing the elliptical with headphones and listening to good music or even taking Zuma class but is it does not have to be a structured workout. It doesn't have to be anything on the computer but putting on music on a speaker in your headphones like I'm watching my husband right now. He has his headphones listening to good music. But listen to good music and just dance around. Move your body. Just I mean movement. In general we know is a great habit. A great thing for buying absolve skin everything but Put that music on while you're cooking dinner dance around have fun. Just have your own dance party. Honestly have your own damn dance party because it's so good. It's so good for your body. It's so good for your mind and I just think that I can't imagine people and I'm sure some people are in there blasting their music in their indoors but it seems like things are quieter at least around here in Seattle quiet. I don't hear music in the building. I don't hear music outside. All here is the news which is not great so good uplifting music dancing around and just like work at help. I've got a business idea. Iffy house policy the APP. Yes went don't party with Jordan. Samuel would be in that party and also I've done view these interviews now and what's really struck. Me Is how people are saying that the skin care routine is always a good habit but is something that they then looking at it in the same way as they were so what used to be. Maybe perhaps quite functional all I want to do that. I want to use this to get this result. It's now definitely becoming more of a pampering experience and I wondered whether you've changed that as well well for me being in the skin-care World I've always made it a superpower inexperience. Also because it's whether I'm trying a new product out from our lab or my lying or from another line or from friends line or something like that. I've always really used it as I'm also a big believer in facial massage so I do take time in my routine anyway But yeah that routine is happening like clockwork morning tonight. Because that's reminding like Goto but I'm happy. I'm happy to see the people. Yeah are are sort of also seeing the point in everything they're Using I think by having to be more pampering having it slowdown a bit having More self care they can look at each product and see its function instead of sort of like. You said I mean yes functional. But sometimes it's just use X Y and Z. Because you've been told to use X Y and or because you but now to really look at what each thing is doing what it's bringing and And if it's serving a purpose for you do
The Evolution of ML and Furry Little Animals
"You are listening to talking machines Catherine Gorman Lawrence and Neil. We are again taping an episode in front of a live audience digitally recorded though on on talking machines. And if you want to be part of our live. Studio audience big quotes. You can follow us on twitter at Ti Okay. N. G. M. C. H. S. Or hit us up on the talking machines at gmail.com and our guest today for this interview on talking. Machines is Dr Terence. Annouce key doctors and thank you so much for taking the time to join us today. I really appreciate it Great to be here so we ask all of our guests the same question I. How did you get where you are? What's been your academic and industrial journey. You're also very involved in the reps conference. Tell US everything well. A wise man once told me that careers are only made retrospectively and I have no idea how he got here. There was no plan. It went through a sequence of stages starting with graduate school at Princeton in theoretical physics. From there when I finished that I for reasons that have to do with the field of physics. At the time which was a little bit more bummed I went into neuroscience so that was a post doc and then from there that's when I met. Geoffrey Hinton and had changed my life because we met him at a small seminar here in San Diego and set nineteen seventy nine. We hit it off and From that over the next few years you know blossoms the the Boehner Sheen and back prop and you know. The rest was history. Terry who you post talking with where you post talking in San Diego no no. This was a post doc at Harvard. Medical School in the Department of Neurobiology with Stephen Kofler who was widely considered to be the founder of modern neurobiology and It was an experimental post. Doc I actually recorded from neurons. Subic seventy nine. You mentioning physics. It was a little bit more bond a in some sort of connection modeling. That was also a very quiet period. That wasn't a lot going on it. Was this sort of age of classical. Ai Right you're absolutely right. This was in fact. It was the neural network winter. The seventies and it was primarily because of the failure of the perception. That's neat because you say failure of the percents on I read about that a lot. Do you really did fail. All was the men's ski paper little. What the mid ski books are in Minsk. Eighty books have killed it but was it a fair representation. Well you know it's interesting. I think that that's the myth that that book killed it but I actually think that there are other things going on and and Rosenblatt had died as well which seems pretty significant. Yes well He. He was a pioneer. But you have to understand that digital computers were regally primitive back. Then you know that even the most expensive you know the biggest computers you could buy. Don't have the power of your wristwatch today. Rosenblatt actually had to build an analog device. It a million dollars in today's dollars to build a analog device that had potentially otters driven by motors for the weight sums the learning. Wasn't it potentially because you know digital computers? Were good at logic but they were terrible. Doing a floating point is amazing so he built that at Cornell. Right that's right yeah Funded by the owner. Any case by by the time that we were getting started computers was the vaccine era. It was becoming possible. Do Simulations You know they were small-scale by today's standards but but really meant we could explorer in a way that Frank Rosenblatt couldn't so what you're saying around the perceptual and so just forbid of context for Central and sixty one. Is that right? It was fifty nine. I think it was the book but you know it was in that era of early sixty zero and so then there's this period where the digital computer actually wasn't powerful enough to do much and then digital kind of overtook and divinity but these analog machines would just now impractical from a point of view of expense. So you're saying it's less the book and more of a shift to the Digital Machine. That in those early days wasn't powerful enough to simulate the perception. Yes so I I have you know. I have a feeling that history will show that A. I was like the blind man looking under the Lamppost. His keys and someone came along and said where did you lose your keys He said well somewhere else. But this is the only place right can see. I was reading Donald BACI quote. I recently At the beginning of his book about the I which is just a fascinating area and I guess he spent a lot of his career and he did work in in the wool on radar and he was talking about the Radio Club. Which is these early Cybernet assist and the potential of the analog or digital computer to be what represented the brain and his perspective was he. He was sure it wasn't a digital computer and he wasn't sure it was an analog computer either and he thought it was kind of somewhere in between but it feels like that in between is what you're saying is that was the difficult bit to look and perhaps a police were able to look now. That's right I you know. It's I think it's being driven. This is true all science that what you cannot understand is is really determined by the tools that you have for making measurements for doing simulations in it's really only this modern era that has given us enough tools both to make progress with understanding how the brain works and also with a because of the fact that we have a tremendous amount of power now but just to go back to that early era. I think you know I once asked L. Annual you know who is at Carnegie Mellon and it was a time when Geoff Hinton was an assistant professor and I was at Johns Hopkins and I you know he was at the first fifty six meeting at Dartmouth or a I was born and I I said well. Why was it that you didn't look at the brain and for for inspiration and he said well we did. But there wasn't very much known about the at the time to help us out so we just had make doing our own and he's right. That was a era. You know the the fifties was kind of the the beginning of what we now understand about the signals in the brain. Actually potential synoptic potentials. So you know in a sense. What what he was saying was that we basically use the tools we have available the time which was basically computers but what they were good at. What were they good at? They were good at logic at rules. A binary programming. So that you know that was In a sense they were forced to do that. That's a really. WanNa come back to nine hundred seventy nine in a moment but this is an interesting context to that because of course. Vena initially was someone who spread across. Both these areas of Norbert Vena who was at mit founded cybernetics spread across both these areas of the analog and digital he did his PhD thesis on Russell and Whitehead's book but one thing I was reading about recently is there was a big falling out between Vina. I'm McCulloch Pitts. And it's sort of interesting. That Vena wasn't there at the I. E. T. in fifty six and I sometimes wonder was that more about personalities and wanting this sort of old guard to stay away because you always feel veto with someone who who bridge these worlds it. You know that's the fascinating story. I actually wrote a review of a book about Warren McCulloch came up. They were friends. They actually had had been friends yet. It has something to do with their wife's. Yeah I think the lifestyle McCullough was not line with its a side story but but I guess the point you're making which I think is an I'd like us to take us back to seventy nine and the meeting with Jeff is and I think that that's true. Despite the story between humans the real factor that drove things then was the sudden available at a t of increasing cheap digital computer. And no longer the need to do this work that Rosenblatt and McCain and others had done having to wire together a bunch of analog circuits. That you couldn't reprogram to build system. Yeah I think that was a dead. End It for the very reason you gave. Which is that you know you. It's a special purpose device. That isn't good for anything else. And and really if you're trying to explore you need the flexibility of being able to try many ideas and that's in that really is a digital simulation allows you to
The Promise and Forgotten Journey by Silvina Ocampo
"Of the joys on the path of a reader is seeing a name that you see for years and years. Who is this person as we know today? This person who we hear of and don't know is likely to be a woman who's been neglected. This woman Safina. Oh compo was considered to be one of the great unknowns of South American Literature. She worked with or who we spore his when he was putting together his collection of fantastic literature working on that anthology as well was her husband. Cassavetes who wrote a book that Voorhis praised very highly the invention of Morrell. I read born face and Casado race as a young man but until recently I had never read much to my discredit savina Ocampo. Now I can say in my defense. The two of her books a novel and a book of Stories have just been translated and published by city. Lights press many people know city. Lights Bookstore do you also know that froing getty has oppress attached to that bookstore? Yes there is a press and they have published Safina Compost Forgotten Journey which is a book of short stories. But if I am not giving away too much the forgotten journey is the journey out of the womb into the world. This is a journey. None of US succeed in remembering completely. He did not remember it or face. He saw that. Silvino aqap ball had the gift he said of clairvoyance and so now. We have to thrilling books. Forgotten Journey a book of her short stories and I mean the longest is six pages and then a novel called the promise and we say an awful because it is probably the longest thing she wrote. But it's fairly a hundred pages. I have three translators here who have been working on Silvino compo and they are just some of the translators who are working on Silvino Compo. Because she's about to be the discovery that we have all been waiting for. It's very exciting. And one of these translators is the marvelous Suzanne Joe Levin who goes by the name June. Wien many of you will know as soon as I tell you that. She has translated. Cabrera Infanta. Julio Cortazar Carlos Fuentes Man will tweak Severo Saad we hand Buick Assad Race. And she's translated a great deal of poetry more than forty book on translations she is the dean of Spanish South American literature and translation with her are to people who've been her students and who worked with her on each of these two books. Jill how did you come to know? Savina OCAMPO's work well I came to know Selena. Compost work Because I had the good taste and look to make amazing Literary critic when I was very young New York name a mirror years ago and he with him I was down in Argentina and Together we went to the House of Combo They were married. They were married and so I met them for the first time but of course I had already heard of them because I studied Latin American literature in college and And I was at graduate school that time so but getting to meet. These people was like so exciting. You know it's sort of like meeting Gods When you're a student you're studying. These people like absolutely amazing. Did you also meet for his? At that time. I actually met him the year before because he was brought to yell to give a lecture and evolve bone. Was there also Savino Campbell about whom we're speaking being cassavetes and all who were triumvirate of sorts? Once they married for fifty years he continued to be their dinner guest and You know he as I said. He said of her that she was clairvoyant. She didn't take many photographs. She did not like to be photographed when you see a picture of Safina or Campo. It's not unusual for hands to be crossed in front of her face and if fast if she were going to this or that party she would sing with this ugly face. Jessica Powell use started to read Cedar Fina under the direction of Jill Levine. Yes I was first introduced to Selena's work many years ago in a translation seminar that I took with Jill when I was a graduate student at UC Santa Barbara and after that class ended Jilin. I decided to collaborate on a novella which was actually the only work that Silvino Compo and her husband Blake Assad wrote together and so it was lower haight which is fantastic and we co translated it. And after that Jill and I started talking about you know Oh wouldn't it be wonderful to translate more of Selena's works and so then in Katie a? New Young came on the scene and she's completing her doctorate and her dissertation is in part on Compo Katie's Latif John worked on the translation of forgotton journey. A book of short pieces. There has been also. I don't want to confuse anyone a book of poetry from the New York review books as well as another book covering the entire spectrum of So Vena or Campos pros. I've found my own beginning point. Were these two thrilling little books. Let's here who would like to read a section of Savino Compo? Who'd like to go start with the first black? I can read a section of the Olive Green Dress. The first paragraph from journey forgotten journey. The very first book of Savino Gone Full. Let's hear the first paragraph of the Olive Green dress the olive green dress. The display windows stepped forward to greet her. The only reason she had left the House that morning was to go shopping. Miss Hilton blushed easily her skin translucent as a waxed paper like those packages who's wrappings reveal. All that's inside but beneath such transparencies where the thinnest layers of mystery behind the branching veins growing a little tree over the surface. She was ageless unjust when one noticed the deepest wrinkles on her face or her long white braids. It was possible to catch an unexpected glimpse of her youth in some childlike gesture. Other times she seemed to have the smooth skin of a young girl and light blonde hair precisely at the moment when she looked as if old age had caught up with her. The first paragraph of a very short story called the Olive Green Dress as I read. The stories seem to escape from me as I moved forward in them. There's a strange quality of presence and absence coal joint as she writes. It's quite extraordinary and this first paragraph. Because it's so zigzag you know I I saw it begins with a very odd sentence received like awkward. How could display windows stepped forward to greet you of course? That's that's very surrealist element of you. Know which was the time she was writing in but you know she she young as she old. It's like going from a woman's You know perception of herself but you were talking about how she felt about. She looked I mean. I thought this is kind of interesting example now. Above of that of of those issues and so as very twisty this is Jill Levine. Who is perhaps the Guardian Angel of these three translators bringing savina Ocampo's writing into our present

Tech Lead Engineer: Herding Cats & Drinks
"We often talk about our growth path as engineers. One of those pass could be attack need engineer in today's episode. We're joined by I Tony Edwards to help talk with us about the role and responsibilities of a tech lead engineer. Tony can even brief introduction of who you are what you do and in what your favorite happy hour beverages sure I'm Tony. I'm a Sophomore Inter net flicks. I spend about twenty percent of my time coding favorites vagrancy my favorite happy hour beverage is a Manhattan Bliss. You're eighty percent of your time. Doing I help run. Projects and attend meetings readings all right okay interesting. We will definitely be getting into more on that before we do. Let's give introduction of today's panelists jam. You're started off Jamyang senior software engineer Netflix Stacy London senior front and Engineer Atlassian and also a feature lead for the last year plus on a project which isn't discussed later. I'm definitely curious on that High Mars Julian. I'm a front end software engineer at AIRBNB so a little different than nomad had lost and yet. I'm not a netflix anymore. So I'm a little bit sad yeah a little bit sad and I'm Ryan Burgess. I may suffer engineering manager at Net applets in each episode of the Front Unhappy Our podcast. We loved choose a keyword. If it's mentioned it all in the episode we will all take a drink. What do we decide today's keyword. It is projects so we say the word project projects new all take a drink her. Let's jump in. How would you describe what attack lead role engineer love listening listening like that out of attending meetings the little writing code some architect? Ing squishy socks thing softens architect teens not necessarily really soft yeah. It's not but ultimately gotta lean on your fellow engineers but it's important that you set so the broad strokes folks so a lot more like planning and off front work but then letting other engineers run with something yeah you gotTa Transfer People for sure all right anything else that odds that definition. I think it's an interesting I did ask for definition in the first place because I think every company will execute it very very differently and so it's interesting to hear obviously everyone's perspective here. I think we all have a slightly different definition in mind where the like coating to sort of management management ratios might be very very different depending on where you work. I think that's a fair point is they're completely different. Depending on the company say a lead engineer sewing that is honest honest with themselves about the amount of coding they do. Tony said Yeah. I feel like your son no matter what as a tech lead you're likely coating less. I think in general is engineers in years. We overestimate how much coding we do like Oh. You're you're seeing yourself engineering. It's cutting your your pilots seventy eighty percent of the time and it's probably more like sixty percent of the time we we we got a lot of meetings yeah. I I do think as you become more senior and more complexity of your role that grows hashing that's really funny as your coating actually goes down. That's definitely the way I've seen it in in my house yeah and I like put enough. I've had a conversation with our director about this much. Hey you know I it turns out. I'm starting most of my time. I'm doing network which is like writing. Docs meetings and organizing people in wrangling different projects and like. I don't feel like I'm doing my job. He's like that. Is Your job like your job to get stuff done. No matter what it takes sometimes coating more often than not it's not coating and that's kind of what lead engineers do by the way for the word projects as Mars for wholeness countable thin sharp. I think so I mentioned Fisher lead with the introductions and that's a role. I guess I really haven't heard of that particular. Taylor role until I got to a LASSEN and it's not official like role as in like senior engineer and like a future leader or anything like it's an addendum addendum. It's like a thing that you do as senior or you actually be any level and do that particular role but it's like somebody that let's say you take a team. That's pretty big and you break them up into smaller. smaller teams to work on a particular feature so like maybe on on screen. There's like some small. thing like you're building. They are a card that does X. That's a feature you feature lead it and what that really means. You're trying to help the product manager and the designer figure out anything that needs to happen to get that done from like the technical side so they're gonNA define. Maybe what the product manager and the designer according to define like you know what is and what it should look like and you're gonNA figure out the how and it doesn't mean that you wouldn't figure out how with let's say let's say you're on a future team and you have other senior engineers or junior all levels that you're working with. They're gonNA also figure out how to build this thing but you might run interference or maybe make make it so they don't have to go otas many meetings as you do about the technical implementation. see figure stuff out. Maybe a little bit more so that they can just like go and bills and and not have to be distracted too much. I think that's that's one way to think about it. A switch that up by future too is meaning is you could be the the lead on this feature and insulin so it could be on the lead on the next feature like is it something that's kind of interchangeable totally on insult for the last year more than like a future lead on a huge each screen Bisley redoing the entire poll request experience and that is a massive thing. That's like many many many many many features and actually actually to be honest it was it was too much that was me like almost never coating and doing a lot of like interference in all sorts of stuff and recently. We decided to break that up so now we we have many feature lead. You know people from different levels not all senior. I'm just taking over and owning a little piece of that page in working through plus really Likud. I didn't actually know to feature lead was but it sounds very similar to like attack lead lead engineer whatever it is it's very similar but is very narrow focus on on this particular feature year leading this ever yeah. It's really cool. I think another area that we miss maybe defining on how to describe attack lead. They feel like you're dealing a lot more with cross functional teams. I feel like as an engineer. You're always working really closely with your team. Maybe maybe you're working with the PM the designer but oftentimes there's other requirements come across cross functionally. There's like other engineering other disciplines that need to be brought brought in and you might be that person on goes in Shepherd's that and brings a technical perspective to it. He drew clarify cross functional for those who don't speak Silicon Valley. I don't know if it's is just silicon valley but I've not heard that too much. Okay that's fair. I mean cross functional to me means different functions of the business so that might actually be like like I mentioned PM design but it could also be even cross functional engineering teams. There's like A. Ui Team is a back end team Thurs networking team. There's like who knows what your project needs but you might actually be involved in a lot of those discussions where you're talking about okay how does the the back in interface with the Ui how does the backend interface with a database and those are the types of conversations where I feel like a tech lead might be involved. It's some of those meetings that you may not. I have to have all your engineers involved in like if you're a front end engineer you may not want your entire team there but you wanNA representative and to me that someone who is tackling exactly that can represent your team in those discussions that are broader function of the Costume Sean seeds that good jump. That's okay. I'll take it a home uh-huh affair all right well since it's okay. How could you make it better. I would simplify it right I would I would say it comes as different parts of the business that may not be. It's more than one product area so start with you. Did I think you compile all right now. That was project. Project Project Tares when you're a tech lead. You're the ambassador for engineers and you may be the first point of contact that he was ever had with with your team and so it's really important to make really good impression and if you're trying to get something done obviously that's why you're at a meeting with. This person is really important. He said good context high. Make make sure to explain why what you're doing is important because why should why should they help you. You gotTA show them. Show them the lights instead of make them light. It's very you can get people to do what you want by making them do what he wants or from top down. Maybe you can depend on organization do a top down thing but much better to get them to buy into there. You have to convince people that this is a great idea. That's like psychology right like that's that's like that's. I think what's been interesting choosing to about some of the definitions of this very outward facing and there's a lot of metal work involved but there it's been alluded to before here like internally also at least looking internally within your team. engineers are really really good resources for decision making so we've talked architect eating and making decisions based on unlike technologies to move forward with given the long term context in the projects cutoff line. I think there is external and internal responsibilities as house while put yeah. I guess what kind of skills like we kinda talk about some of the responsibilities but like what kind of skills goes into Vena technically you have. I've been around the block engineering wise. You have to see and you have to have failed. You have to have succeeded. You'll have to have done something of a biggest cope before I I like the failure part because you really do learn from all your past failures of like these are the types of questions. I need to ask front so that my team doesn't fail again. I if you don't if you haven't had that experience you might get engineers that are in that that team that you're on there like this is amazing technical challenge. I can't wait to go down a rabbit hole and work on this thing forever and you're like man. Maybe that there might be a different solution. That doesn't happen before I like the I've been around the block that is added to your point failure that is such a big part is like learning what not to do just as important as learning what you should
How Does Sugar Affect Your Skin?
"Today's episode is all about the way that sugar affects. She skidded yea. May I just Do you scoffed a big travel before the nice kind of gin and tonic on the go so we are so mingun. We we practice what we pray is like when we did the episode on alcohol and widely before we pissed. I we pitched put logic tone it down a well essentially we will researching something else weren't we and we came across the fact that apparently sugar is just really bad voice skin and I wasn't necessarily aware how how it would affect you. I thought it would be one of those things where it's like. It's not good fiercer. It's just inflammation Blah. Blah Blah Blah is such is so much more than that so complicated as an yeah than what you decide later. I'm not sad you explain later yeah so it's basically a process called. Glock Asian which we have briefly touched upon him in a previous this episode but we figured that we could do a full APP kind of based around that I think is quite interesting. This CPR interest in yeah definitely so we're going to run through the effects of a high sugar diet on skin what Greg Haitian isn't Halloween takes how should not change just a chemical might befall cells cells and then waste fight it so. Would you like to start aims. Gonave looks quietly into having high sugar diet. Yes so I'm just GONNA look in general roll out. How your skin reactive you do have a high sugar diet so the swan excess sugar in your bloodstream what you just said it causes glaciation and like we just mentioned y'all. You're going to go into this a little bit more later in a nutshell this is basically a natural chemical reaction which happens when the sugar levels in your bloodstream spike beyond were aw insulin can handle yeah if you are diabetic. You'll probably know Alaba this anyway or if you know somebody who's diabetic you understand what like spikes spikes insulin levels and that kind of thing means but essentially body can handle a certain amount It's a very individual thing but there's a lot of people who are diabetic after look the glycemic index of food or drink ozone and figure out whether it's going to balance them out or whether it's going to be too much for them or whether they need it's bring them back up so as a safe or a healthy blood sugar level and like we said. I'm going to speaking about that a little bit later by just thought my aunt that people might already understand John. Without mains. Yes so I'll let you go into cash. I've a few notes on a poor. Yeah we rock paper scissors all night long for the traces precision explaining it to me yes so essentially glaciation is when you say this an excessive sugar in your blood screen blitzkrieg. God help screen and you bloodstream it causes a process called which is a chemical reaction within our bodies. He's that happens when we spike are interesting can handle and essentially just creates a situation in yourselves whereby the sugar touches to the collagen Jim Protein and then it stops it from forming a strong structure so it makes you am super wrinkly basically just means means that you you collagen cells gone before us in family would and can every up we talk about how important college and it is important to keep it healthy and yeah and and something that you can do obviously take collagen supplements. We looked into that didn't win and we were like said in the last APP baffled pleasantly surprised yeah that it did actually work like said before. We've we look at loads of papers and stuff you picking off your godly twenty five pound. A nail picks up in the morning. Oh God of warnaco longest. She's right now picking off a jails and struck me to the joke on the floor screw anyway yes so the Asian takes it starts to show kind of at the age of thirty to thirty five issued a high sugar diet and essentially wants your cells under the process of Glide Keisha and there's a new I use substances created and thus of disrupts the mall so is actually something is called an age which is quite appropriate because it makes you skin look aged am boy. It's they advance graduation end products and it's just really destructive site just breaks down the last in degrades Collagen. an like we said that is walks. What's key to making sure the ISKIN supply and fences loads of things we can do to protect those proteins and having a high sugar diet is just really bad for your Well well really bad. Few Salvos obviously is not good for you and it's worth me saying now as well that when we're talking about sugary diet we're not talking about naked a bag of haribo unlock. Vena home a coke install yeah because they are sugary. Obviously they do need to avoid them book. If you have a really high diet in fruit and vegetables and obviously quite love Veg- is quite Karbi fruits quite Karbi that breaks down into sugar if they're quite sugary anyway that she natural sugars so if you sat listening thinking. Oh yes fine because I live a refined sugar free diet and that's still not really gonna do everything because chances are you probably just making up three refined sugar uh-huh by adding more fruit sugar on naturally occurring sugars and that's still a problem am now in terms of what occasion looks like you know when you see and I'm going to say an old an age on it but when you see wrinkles they all just kind of lines in one direction so they're like the not horizontal her is on the not vertical ever like dry sand in the desert yeah it it basically looks at cross hatched wrinkles said the skin isn't sagging being and it's not wrinkly. It's kind of both so it just looks like I don't know I'm looking at my knuckles right now and you see how because he's obviously they move in all different ways. You've a lot of lines running across your calls. looks like over your whole body so it's not just your face aces like your arms especially chest and like a for a woman steria and it happens quite a lot hands well especially when you have a loved. Sun Damage because that we set some damage and the free radicals caused by UV Navy be race breaks down Collagen cells as well so over time and this is why it kind of starts peak about thirty the if you'll start to notice it because it's not just the guy -cation so it'd be guy -cational sun damage it'll just be general aging anyway lack of the right vitamins any skin skin or lack of your body produce in highly acid and that kind of thing but have looked into a little bit about how you can fight guy -cation. If you would like me to go into that Kgo am so we are going to talk about expoliation in a couple of episodes time boats Ph as something I wanna go into took a poly hydroxy acid and is really gentle exfoliating or cycles of a B H h alpha or B. Two hydroxy acids. This all sounds very confusing but trust me. I WANNA try and make it simple is really good at helping fight any of the signs of aging through Keisha and but in terms of Dui -cation what you can do is you can live a low glycemic index indexed diet so you want to be in slow releasing carbohydrates like Brown bread able white bread. No sometimes we put up with care about the calories but there's just a lot more sugar in white bread than there is Brownback bread so it will stop inching levels from spike in and then go over the threshold for what your body can actually handle because that's that was soon as you go over. Dot Thousand Locations starts to happen and so there's another thing that you can take. It's called con seen if you go to the gym cry allow you take supplements for the GM a lot of people or bodybuilders or people trying to build Moso will take Elkana scene and that AH really useful for repair muscle so he's on a very cellular level e Cantate Casino L. Cost Nine. Don't I did look into the differences between the an AH couldn't find anything that really made sense to me to relate on here book of essays during the similar thing so it's helping to repair anything if you start taking cau- aw colonising then you might notice a difference in your skin but like said this takes a long time to happen so if you want into go if you're into supplements and I would suggest carnoustie because it's could risk in any way and then I read that if you take vitamins B one B six. They're really good for as as well so essentially they all worked together to get in there and breakdown that protein so you know I was talking about their advance Caucasian and yet products dot is a protein eighteen breaks the Collagen and lasted. If you'd have these vitamins might coniston and things like that it will it will go in and it will try and kill the age so a- as soon as you start to kill that then you lesson you Collagen bill back up again and beal healthy and super quickly be one vitamin B.

She's giving up pork for like as long as deep without Habana. Yes so Alex's parents donahue. Don't who if ever you go round she'll make some knows yeah well.

There's so much amazing shit happening there. And the fact that he's trying to do things the right way. He is completely transparent in a world where I believe the only things that are going to set you apart, as an entrepreneur other than your ability to actually build a business, by the way, is your willingness to be transparent? And if people can actually connect to you. I think for the right type of entrepreneur, it opens up a window that is incredible that has never before been seen in human history. Now, I am somebody who prides himself on being an other worldly marketer, and I built a very large business by understanding something in. Marketing that other people didn't understand. But at the same time, you know, me, I'm never frayed to admit when I'm wrong. And there was a time where I realized he was doing something better than I was doing. And I just sat at his feet, and I'm doing my best to learn. So guys, I'm telling you, it will not be wasted time and effort he is an emotional conundrum. I am only just now beginning to understand what is going on with this man. But it is incredible. He doesn't judge himself. He is completely who he is. He recognizes the strengths he plays to that. He finds people that can help them with the negative side and being around him is like being around a fire. Many people warned their hands on it and become better as a result. So dive in you guys. Thanks guys for listening, please, please. Please share the podcast and make sure you've subscribed to because a bunch of you aren't subscribed, and more importantly, a bunch of you.

"It's a little bit depressing from that standpoint, I think from the actual standpoint of charity in the playoffs. It's less than it's ever been before where the regular season. I do think that there's a good amount of it. I think there's a healthy amount of it. And I think that they're opening it on Washington and when it comes to a Super Bowl win. But I think the danger though, is that there's a tendency to forget that the New England Patriots skew everything because even with the old theory, which is like so far it keeps working out the to win the Super Bowl you either gotta have a rookie on his on his quarterback on his rookie deal or Tom Brady. Who's taken a discount some of that skewed? By the fact that the patriots have down some teams in the championship game. That have a veteran quarterback thing of all the teams that would have been in the Super Bowl if not for the patriots have veteran quarterbacks. So I think the patriots skew everything at least one team from the championship games every single year doesn't make it back to the playoffs the next year. So I think that I think there is still parody. It's just it from it's from season to season. Yeah. The being in the six or seven seed, you're not gonna Vena sixty in the NFL. You're not going to make the Super Bowl Most likely have much less of a chance now than you did. And the counter argument, I think for last year would be guys that you have a guy Nick foles making Super Bowl run by the eagles had taking care of business in the regular season because they were really really good football team. It wasn't just Carson Wentz. That was the reason that they had the best record in the NFC last season. We're discussing radio Mike Stephan, Paul whether the Texans had a championship window that is open right now. Seth does not believe in the window. Paul says that they the window right now is not open at the moment. They're opening it during the process of opening their opening your windows open as long as you have a franchise quarterback in my opinion. I in the modern NFL, I think that they are in the championship window because to me in the NFL, the it's the sign now if you have a good quarterback on a rookie contract by definition. You'll have a chance to win a championship. This has nothing to do with my my take our opinion on Bill O'Brien, my analysis of the situation. All the big decisions. We're gonna be talking about from now until a month from now or a couple of months from now clowney Matthew cream. Jackson, fixing offensive line, fixing the cornerback spot all those issues and topics are made so much easier because your quarterback is basically making no money comparison the top quarterbacks in the NFL. So you can do clowney tire. Matthew, everything you want because your quarterback is so cheap. Right. It makes it a lot easier to win a championship if everything else. The coaching staff. The rest of the roster is good enough. But this is also where this is where you have to be optimistic about your window of opportunity. If you have the Shawn Watson, if you have Pat, Mahomes, if you have anybody else right now, we are in an era of extreme cap expansion heavens every now, and then who knows what's going to happen when they have a new collective bargaining agreement. A couple years down the road. But right now, you can dole out a huge quarterback contract. And then a few years later. It's not hurting you at all Andrew lucked, Scott a mega contract that doesn't look all that impressive anymore and the colts have one of the highest cap spaces in the league like they're just fine. You could say so the excuse of all we had to pay our quarterback remembered Grigson Grigson acted like having to pay Andrew luck. All of a sudden made it hard to feel the competitive team, not Alex seventy million cap space. Greg sins. One of the worst minds to ever have a real power in the National Football League. I still really argue that still mind boggled at the guy one executive of the year. Congratulations on having the first overall pick and doing what all of us would have done which is. Picking Andrew luck. Number one. The number of the NFL executive of the year is almost you get it in. You're almost like boy now things are going to suck for the next two years..

Reviewing the Year in Cryptocurrency
"It's been a tumultuous year for crypto currency bitcoin which turned ten and twenty eighteen sauna specially precipitous decline from its peak of nearly twenty thousand dollars at the end of twenty seventeen to under four thousand at the end of twenty eighteen joining me now in our studio to review the year in cryptocurrency as Wall Street Journal reporter, Paul Vena, Paul we've spoken a lot over the past year about bitcoin, and especially the decline in price. Twenty eighteen has been a tough year for bitcoin to say, the least it was not as fun as 2017 certainly not twenty eighteen really should not have been much of a surprise to people. I mean, if you look at what drove 2017 it was it was a mania. It was a mania around this new fundraising method, call the ICO the initial coin offering which is where these startups could create a digital token and sell it to the public. You had the concurring. Aren't dynamic of the fact that bitcoin prices and fear him either. Which is one of the other big cryptocurrency, the prices of bitcoin and Neath were both rising. So you had people who had a lot of of musing air quotes, you know, paper prophets digital paper. Whatever you wanna call it the value of their holdings was going up. But there really wasn't much. Do it. There's still not much you can do with bitcoin either or any cryptocurrency. So they had these sort of paper profits nothing to do with them here. Come these ICO's, these sort of, you know, very speculative very risky projects. But their projects their investments nonetheless that you could fund with bitcoin and ether. So people threw money into it. And in two thousand seventeen that becomes this sort of self reinforcing cycle, and that's what drove prices so high. The problem was that ninety nine percent of those projects were nothing. But on paper ideas, there was no product. There was no revenue there were certainly no history of operations. These were all basically seed stage companies that were getting. What really was mature private company capital raisings? So the whole thing was just top heavy overloaded, a not fundamentally balanced not fundamentally sound. It was obvious that in two thousand eighteen unless unless you know, most of these projects immediately hit the ground and had products and revenue. It was obvious that this was all going to reverse and indeed it all did reverse. And we've spoken a lot about bitcoin struggle to gain more widespread acceptance as a sustainable payment system, it seems not much has changed as we head into twenty nineteen. In fact, it may have gotten a little bit worse on that front. Right. I think a lot of bitcoins problems are self inflicted. I think there's been a lot of question within the bitcoin industry, which is which comprises software engineers slash coders developers. Businesses users all these. People had sort of different ideas for what bitcoin is supposed to be. And this is a problem that was going back several years, and they've kind of been pushing and pulling in different directions with the the result that there's really no one thing that bitcoin is right now bitcoin has run virtually uninterrupted and bitcoins bitcoin the bitcoin code itself. The bitcoin blockchain has never been hacked despite myriad attempts to do it all the hacks have been for services built on top of bitcoin. And we've heard a lot about those hacks. But bitcoin itself has never been hacked for ten years. It has run uninterrupted that you cannot take away from bitcoin the program it self works. The question is what can you do with it? What you'd Tilleke does? It have in the world. That's where all the focus problems of come in. And the community is still sort of torn on that. And they can't figure out exactly what bitcoin should be predictions for what will see in crypto currency markets in the new year. Well, I mean, look it trying to predict what's going to happen with this industry. Listen trying to predict what's going to happen in any asset class is difficult in this one it is impossible on. I'm not going to try. However, what I will do is is all show you that. I'll point to a couple of trends, the biggest one is going to be where this crypto currencies go as an asset class, and what people are really pinning their hopes on. And I don't know that this is going to pan out. And I have some skepticism that it will pan out..
"vena" Discussed on WSJ What's News
"Or Botts that committee late prices and currently operate largely unchecked. Joining us now with the details is Wall Street Journal reporter, Paul Vena. So Paul tell us how these Botts work and why they're a growing concern. The issue of trading box in the crypto market. It's not necessarily a new one, and the way they work is not necessarily different from the way these kinds of programs work and the traditional markets. The problem is that most crypto currency exchanges have very little regulation. If any, there are a handful that have kind of voluntarily sought out regulations, regulators, they've sought to adhere to rules because they're looking to attract a certain type of person which is more legitimate person to them that that is a a stamp. Of respectability stamp of legitimacy. They're seeking that out, but most exchanges have not sought that out. Most exchanges are registered in domiciles that do not put any kind of stringent rules on them. It does not require them to know a lot about their customers and they kind of turn a blind eye to abusive practices. And these abusive practices are very difficult to do manually, but they are much easier to do if you employ a program a trading bought. So that is the crux of the problem is. So while it does seem like regulators are looking into ways to begin cracking down on these Botts as with most things crypto currency related. I'm assuming it's not that simple. Just finding them and catching them in action. Right? The problem with a lot of the whole regulatory story when it comes to the crypto market is that you're talking about regulators are every regular. Later is limited by the borders of the country. They operate in bright crypto markets are generally not limited to the borders that they are registered in. So you could be a crypto currency exchange, and you know register, I'm using air quotes. You can't see it, but amusing register as a company almost anywhere and operate everywhere. And it becomes very difficult to regulators when they're dealing with these kinds of companies across borders to track them down and chase him. Now it's not impossible, but it is. It's just an added level of complexity. Is that much harder? So I think what you will probably see is the real way to get around to to get at this is to level pressure on the exchanges themselves, and you are starting to see that the the newspaper that we used. And I had been thinking about this story for a very long time about automated trading programs. The box in the abuse and the real newspaper came in the New York attorney. General's report on cryptocurrency on trading from the end of September, and they really specified the fact that these trading programs are being employed. The exchanges are doing very little to determine whether or not the kinds of trays most of the exchanges. Again, I, I want to be clear. Some exchanges are trying to thwart this. Some exchanges aren't and what they're the New York AG was saying that Barbara d Underwood is, is that too many of them are not taking any kind of measures to know what their customers are doing? They can track all this stuff. They can look at trading the exchanges themselves. They can look for trading patterns that look abusive, they can. They can ferret this stuff out if they want to. Most of them do not want to most of them do not care..
No class action for unhappy Uber drivers: U.S. appeals court
"Cam. High a San Francisco based federal appeals court handed over a big win to today over a case Wayne on whether or not the ride hailing giant should classify its drivers as employees ease instead of independent contractors a distinction that has some significant financial consequences. The ruling by the ninth circuit court of appeals barred drivers from even suing the company over the matter citing a contract agreement with Uber that only allows drivers to settle disputes with them through arbitration, not in court, you see Hastings law. Professor Vena do ball has been following this case and she joins me now. What does today's decision by the appeals court mean for the hundreds of thousands of Uber drivers that were looking to be recognized as employee's what's at stake for them. It means they cannot have their claims decided through one clean lawsuit. And it means that they need to take their claims to individual private arbitration hearings, which as you can imagine low income. Uber drivers are not likely to actually end up doing which means that they probably won't get their reimbursements and OJ's in the way that we would have

Next segment she is the exact kind of person that we need in Florida in the United States. Of America, you know Florida had such an instrumental played such an instrumental part in the elections, presidential elections and they need to keep.

You want to get some information Vena The i. n. IRA for. Congress dot com and, you can check it out but she's gonna be with us in, the next segment we do have a lot to talk about. From an economic perspective but we certainly. Will get to all of that as well Right now all the indices in positive territory that's good, news we were down slightly yesterday nothing to really speak about. No no big deal but we certainly saw. The Dow down about forty five, points which is just about an. Eighth one eighth of, one percent the NASDAQ was up about a sixteenth of one percent, but it was green and the s&p was pretty much flat So looks like everything's in positive territory right, now at least for the open we'll see how things go So look we have Near were, nearing records were nearing records in the SNP were still better thousand points away in. The Dow from record but we're nearing records in the SMP. Could hit, that today A lot of enthusiasm in and around earnings reports And those earnings reports are kind of pushing, back a little bit over the anxiousness in trade So That's the way it's supposed to. Be that's the way it should be right. Now China's markets closed slightly up summer. Saints I heard on I was in a hotel and I quickly at six o'clock this, morning. Ran down to get something to eat. And they had one of the greatest networks. On the television MSNBC for it wasn't. For restaurants airports Friends and family, I don't know that they'd have any other audience but nonetheless MSNBC making a big deal of, this Tax Tariffs what China China weathering the, storm just. Fine they neglected to say that they were down over seventy percent on the, year eighteen. Percent that's. It doesn't. Matter they had a good day yesterday one day And it, wasn't even. That good of a day to be honest with you and they're going through, all kinds. Of woes. Troubles and. Struggles as economic data continues to get worse So That certainly has got European markets a little bit spooked right now or at. Least so the European markets say that that is a. Concern But again US stocks, doing very well let let me just give you one little tiny statistics since President Trump has been president the. Markets have added eight point seven trillion dollars market cap Hates the correction with, adequate action I've talked about that at length almost every day this week it. Sounds a, bit self serving because I predicted that I was the only guy talking about that by the way anywhere that I. Saw in writing or on news, media about a year ago Now as I was talking about it Not making a prediction necessarily But saying that it certainly is a possibility And a likelihood if the president could get through, some of, his agenda that he wants to of course. That was back when he was a candidate I was saying, that and and. Soon after he got elected that has happened We've got average market cap in the Dow seventeen, or I'm sorry Valuation at fifteen and a half times, earnings that's great It's a buyer's market technically so what happened to all these. Overvalued stocks That's the average of the Dow all these overvalued stocks that we were. Only gonna fix by, correction because we've. Had nine years of economic growth so. So many economists conservative economists. Too I might add not just liberal economists Wait what I'm still trying to figure out what that economic growth is we've had an average GDP growth of one. Point nine percent during, the Obama administration. What are they talking about but anyway So good things happening we've got. To stay positive there's always gonna be some ripples, in some issues and of course. November elections probably a critically? Critically important On two, fronts one is obviously. For us to hold America. And continue to make it better that's the most. Important thing Secondly, in order, to keep the economy growing Republicans have to win congress because anybody that comes. In is going to want to. Destroy this president's agenda there are a lot of sheep in wolves clothing that are running for congress right now. On the democratic side trying to pretend like they're moderates I can tell you. They're going to be caucusing. With, Nancy Pelosi and Harry and Chuck Schumer They want to. Destroy this president they want wanna. Destroy any legacy they might have from an economic perspective now, I know a lot of you Listening across this country May have voted for Hillary may still, be in that camp but I want you. To vote your pocketbook I want you to vote the economy I want you to vote the undisputable Happenings of the economy right now which is by the way Unbelievable growth No matter how you. Shake it you whether you believe it. Or not that's. Another story you don't have to believe it if you don't. Want to but the fact of the matter is you have more money in, your pocket and you have more opportunity than you've ever had probably in your lifetime So keep that in mind Eight eight four four seven or. Seven fifty five thirty three. Let me just say that President Trump. Did say yesterday that. He believes we're going to be on a consistent, basis, GDP growth that was a mistake soon as I heard, him, say it I went oh I wish. You wouldn't have said that But he did He will be sorry because he's going to have trouble walking that back and it's going to be. Used, against him unfortunately even the greatest of economic recovery's greatest, of economic times we saw quarters where the GDP didn't, do so well So he's, going to spend a lot of time over the next Seven years hopefully being sorry that he said that Listen if we get three percent which listen we're, going to have time to five percent quarters percent but we're going, to have, a consistency, of three to three point eight percent my opinion and that is.

"Drinking yeah yes and you know what you know what's powerful about the story is that it it really captures the human element of very difficult story to tell because in the story i only spoil the beginning of the first episode for you and that is that the police officer makes a mistake he makes them steak and it's a story of how the cover up really does make what happened worse because he made a mistake and because his officers are involved in something shady they're they're afraid of how this will look and so they covered up and it becomes worse than you have these families embroil everyone has stories everyone has secrets that they're trying to keep and that that really makes it worse how do you think like the success of the show was defined by the humanity of every single one of the characters because i won the first thing is the fact that vena sued the creator she instead of making it be a child that was shot by a police officer right it was a child that was hit by police officer and then this story of a cover up so that's where i think the humanity comes in and the choices that we make in this being a product of our choices and that's what i guess made allowed people to see it from a more human perspectives and that that really is i think would make seven seconds so successful that combined with the amazing acting phenomenal in it sank you i know the emmys coming up honestly like you have won two emmys i see a third in your future is genuinely phenomenal.
