"Those are just a few ways to describe Wes hall. He started from very humble beginnings to become a Titan in corporate Canada, as founder of kingsdale advisers, Wes has advised some of Canada's largest corporate transactions. Before becoming a household name as a dragon on dragonstone, west was a recognized leader in shareholder advisory services and proxy solicitation. He employs hundreds of people as owner of companies like QM environmental and Wes is also well known for philanthropy, leadership, and is a strong voice for social justice and corporate Canada. Welcome west and thank you for joining us today. Rich, thanks for having me. Real pleasure. So Wes, you started in Jamaica as a kid, moved to Toronto as a teenager. Your story is just fascinating to me and how you built your success. Maybe you can take me through that transition. Well, my book coming out October 5th, no bootstrap when you're barefoot is the fascinating tale of really how I started from growing up in a tin shack literally in rural Jamaica Saint Thomas, my grandmother worked at a sugarcane plantation of banana plantation and coconut plantation, depending on the season, they were in Jamaica. And I have 14 brows and sisters, and it's a very, very small town. And I never really thought that whatever leave that small town ever. Because my grandmother lived there, my grandfather died there, my grandmother died there, my brothers and sisters, a lot of them still lived there some of them died there, and they never left. So for me, I just thought that I was going to be a plantation worker like my grandmother, like my grandfather, like my brothers and sisters. And Canada was just like a distant dream. I knew my dad was there, but I'd never really thought that one day I would actually get the opportunity to come to Canada. So September 27th, 1985, my dad said, it's time for you to come live with me here in Canada. And that changed my life really. Wow, I love the book plug. And I look forward to reading it. Your next big transition Wes was from lock lurk to corporate savior.

"Is Thursday we are one day away from the college World Series and what an SEC affair. It is going to be in a couple of teams that are about to join the SEC. So we'll have all eyes on Omaha and this is what it looks like. What a juicy matchup tomorrow, a and M and Oklahoma, old big 12 rivals. They'll play a two and then tomorrow night, you have the longhorns taking on Notre-Dame, the Victor over Tennessee, Stanford and Arkansas, Stanford certainly among the favorites Arkansas could be the hottest team going.

Let's check out AC in New Jersey. Good afternoon, AC. Mister Flynn, thank you so much for taking my call. Thank you. Call my background to your noodles doing tonight. They're doing okay. They're in the back of a very quiet. That's good. Well, that's good because they're quiet because when the smashing time arrived, they could use me. They don't have to do any business because I'm all about action. Let me talk about a squirrel and a man. Mister scarlet, if I were you, I would say all the way to the top of that tree, my flight's hammered double looking buddy when I need to use it. I'm gonna use it as much as I want to. And as far as mister Iron Man is concerned, well, let me tell you something, mister Ahmed, instead of going after a gin from Tuscaloosa, he got to deal with me, buddy. And Jim from tussauds that he says he's also saved the show. Well, how come he did not call three weeks ago when Jason Fitz was on? How come he did not see the show? You're not saving you're just another hypocrite in the block, hugging mister Paul fine by spotlight. So this is what I'm going to say to your client, I'm going to hang out. The day all the respect when you retire, Jim from Tuscaloosa and he's going to demand it. I am dead serious. So Jim are putting water on me. This is not legend. This is AC waiting for waiting with my camera. Let's do this, buddy, New York City, New Jersey. You name it. I'll show up one money is right. Okay, see you later. I don't know where this guy came from. AC is like parachuted down and is carrying the mantle for the WWE right now, isn't he? I mean, there's no friendly conversation with this guy. It's SmackDown with everyone. Anyway, he used to call some time ago, but anyway, Wes blanken ship is joining us now and it's with the dogs. West good afternoon. I don't know how we got into what we were just talking about, but it's great to have you on. And what's happening over there, give us a lay of the land. Well, we're trying not to melt right now in Athens, Georgia, Paul. There's a heat index of about 800°. So if you're recruit on an official visit, you're probably getting the freshest best air conditioning in Athens this weekend. Yeah, I was just outside here and it's cool today. It's only 97 and it's supposed to be up to a hundred tomorrow, but yeah, I don't think there are many places at least below New Jersey that are cool right now. We're speaking of cool. Let's talk about Kirby smart because for almost four weeks now and it all came apart four weeks ago, Sabin and Jimbo Fisher have been back and forth AD's making noise commissioners trying to stave it off and Kirby smart just kind of shrugs and walks out. We had him with us two weeks ago. He seemed like he is thoroughly enjoying the feud between his former head coach and former compatriot on the LSU staff. What is this a sign of or is this just Kirby smart the national champ making the most out of his year in the sun? Well, Paul, if you've heard the song, you say it best when you say nothing at all, made famous by Keith whitley and Alison Krauss. I think Kirby smart is a huge fan of that song, potentially, but definitely a huge fan of that mentality in that mindset. And there wasn't a better proof of that, in my opinion, than when he was at the braves game last week. And there aren't many downtime periods in Georgia football's summer schedule, but Kirby actually was caught on the jumbotron with a cold beer. And I've talked with my colleagues throughout the years. People on the beat in the industry about what kind of beer we think Kirby smart drinks. And I found out that he is a big fan of the Coors light. Now the interesting thing about that was Kirby tried to hide the beer with his hat on the jumbotron, kind of like the teachers that go out to chili's for dinner and they get in the group picture and they all hide their margaritas. Not sure why Kirby felt the need to do that. I think that's a hard earned Coors light. But it's a proof. It's a sign. It's a symbol of everything. You just mentioned. Kirby doesn't feel the need to get involved with Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban's fats because he is the national channel. And he's earned it, and he's got a lot of years left in his profession. Well, that's interesting, because one of his assistants, I ran into a couple of years ago when he was at South Carolina. And I was at the pool at a place in South Carolina. And he was on his deck with a can of beer, and he wasn't hiding it from anyone. But I understand Kirby's very conscious. And you rarely see someone of his stature with a drink in his hand because it does, someone would find that objectionable, although I don't know who that would be. Let's talk about the dogs because they are going to be top four. There are doubters, there are those who don't doubt that say with all the great recruiting that he's had, even losing as many players as he did to the NFL. You are not going to see much of a drop off, especially with the national championship quarterback. How do you see it? Yeah, I see a lot of obviously young talent on George's defense, but Jalen Carter may be the best player that was on that team. Last season and he's coming back. So that's pretty scary news for George's opponents next season. Stetson Bennett is a guy that is not going to lose that job this season. I mean, it might not be the prototypical guy like some of the players behind him and certainly a lot of Georgia fans will still root for the guys behind sets and visit. But he understands what Todd monkey wants to do. And speaking of Todd monkey, I think as you continue to see his Georgia offenses evolve, you've seen a coordinator that doesn't try to fit his personnel to a scheme. He does the other way around. He takes the pieces that he has, and he turns that into the best cake he can make. And this season, those ingredients just happened to be tied in..

"Sister Cindy slut shaming show sounds like. Fish don't prostitute can't even make a living in the world because these college girls are giving it away to any boy who comes up with a mop and a bucket. But never fear, sister, Cindy is here to roast you and your whole Friends. I just I have attended many, many a frat party in my day. And perhaps it is other things about me that kept this from happening. But no man ever approached me with a bucket and a mop. That's a wet ass pussy. My favorite thing about that clip was sister Cindy being like, I am concerned for the fact that sex workers can no longer make a living because of these hoes on campus. Sister Cindy's all about sex workers. Look, I am likewise concerned, but it's more about tech platforms than. Oh, we have a college coed. So citizen Cindy and brother Jed have been traveling to college campuses for quite literally four decades at this point. Wait, what? Yeah, it's been this is not new in any way, shape or form. There are well-known phenomena. Who I probably would have never heard of if it weren't for tic tac. Shut it down. Yeah, definitely. I mean, you would have heard of them because they would come to your college campus. You just wouldn't know their names. But basically, yeah, TikTok has provided sister Cindy a new platform. Hers, the sister Cindy slut shaming show, has gone viral on TikTok. Many times. The hashtags as a Cindy has almost 300 million views at this point. She currently has almost half a million followers on the platform. She has a cameo account along with her merch store and TikTok account. The thing that is unclear here is how much of the virality is people who actually believe what she's saying versus people who are ironically just engaging because they think that it's funny oh, I'd assume almost entirely the latter. I would say mostly the latter, but I know having grown up on the Internet. Having seen people be ironically racist for years and then turned out to be actually racist. I just feel like there are some true believers in the sister Cindy camp. Hell is hot. Don't be a thought. Have you heard Bible rap? That's the same thing. Yes, and I had promptly blocked it out of my brain. All right, so back to sister Mel's question though, what happened at UCS, sorry I had to. What happened at UCSD? So the usual thing, which is that a sister Cindy's sighting has become a bit of a bit at this point in that lots of people troll her for views, but who's really controlled here is a good question because sister Cindy has admitted that on some level her slut shaming show was satire. But on April 18th, sister Cindy showed up on university California San Diego's campus. And in the process, gathered a huge crowd. Like easily a couple hundred people just circling her. And at what first glance reads to me as a person from the south who knows Christian culture as a kind of baptism. But it's actually just people listening to laugh and jeer at her. And things escalated when students started harassing and stealing things from her. And according to a tweet from the UCSD student paper, Cindy and her husband left campus after receiving harassment and were escorted off campus after calling UCPD, which I am assuming means Campo. The camp cop, yeah. But the reason Mel came across those UCSD can't be saved tweets is for two reasons. Some people were actually horrified, by the way, is that these college students were treating this woman and calling the behavior despicable to which I would respond with speech can also be violent and hateful and it behooves us to remember that before condemning the responses at rhetoric. That behooves next year to tell me you think Wes Anderson's a fascist. But majority of the posts are as ironic as sister Cindy's following. They say shit like UCSD broke sister Cindy and I witnessed it all with my own eyes, which it's true. She was bullied off campus basically. I mean, Twitter is notoriously a place where people are genuinely concerned for the well-being of others. So it makes sense that everyone is genuinely concerned for sister Cindy. Oh yeah, I've never felt more loved and cared for than on Twitter. All right, that is the show we'd be back in your feed on Saturday, so please subscribe.

Why do you stand aside while the other's practice? Practice? It's not practicing. That's group hugging. We should be busting in on Casanova right now. He who questions training. Only trains himself at asking questions. That was a west duty hamming it up in mystery men. Wes, how did it feel to be able to finally shed the loincloth as it will as it were for a more contemporary and even fun and funny roles? Oh, come on, come on. I didn't shed the loincloth. Breech cloth or whatever. Anything but spandex. In mystery man, I mean. Yeah. And what about other roles where did you relish those times when he didn't have to play against this stereotype? Yeah, actually, you know, what I began to think of it in terms of crossover. Ethnically non specific and I think we need a lot more of those kinds of things and intro business right now. You know, when I first got to LA, there was only a handful of us. We all knew each other pretty much, and many of us going in for the same parts more or less, but I think there was really an explosion of interest in the business of filmmaking during and after dances with woes. And last of the mohicans. So looking back over your career now, did you have a favorite role? No. No. Just all of them. No, the next one. The next one, that's an excellent answer. And it seems, you know, your life could actually be a movie itself. Who do you think would play you?.

"And so I tried to speak English. Oh, and I was shut down immediately. Oh no, no, no. We don't talk that language in this house. And so within a week or two, I guess I have something like that. I was back to being able to communicate and share a case. So I became bilingual at that point. So you were able to hold on to both languages. Yeah. That's amazing. Did your parents and your family encourage that? Because here in Canada, many of our indigenous people were sent to residential schools and had that taken away from them. But you didn't experience that? I will, I didn't experience it simply because there was no Cherokee spoken in the school where I went. I don't remember being told that I couldn't communicate in Cherokee, but there was nobody to communicate other than my aunt, who came down to see me every once in a while, we would communicate in Cherokee, I think. But there simply wasn't anybody there to speak. Cherokee with, so I learned English, right? Right. Yeah, I know, I'm immediately at the same things happened here in the states as far as language annihilation, if you will, yeah, it's a long sad history. This is unreserved on CBC radio one, SiriusXM one 69, and native voice one. I'm Rosanna dear child. My guest today is Cherokee actor Wes Studi. Over the course of his career, he's appeared in more than 80 films and a bunch of TV series. But acting wasn't his first gig. Wes in 1967, you went to Vietnam and served for a year there. Can you tell me what happened there that changed you? I'm still the same. Yeah. I still unreserved. That's correct. I like the title of your show. How that all came about was actually, when I went to high school, I. Had always listened to my dad, tell stories about, you know, what kind of fun he used to have at Sri Lanka, Indian school. He talked about forming a band and sort of the trouble they get into about breaking into the bakery to steal pastries and, you know, and he just had a lot of stories about what they used to do there as kids. At about that time, I'm 13 or 12, 13, something like that. 14. Going into high school soon, and I thought, wow, I would kind of like to see what that life is like, you know? So I got them to send me to Sri Lanka, Indian school. So all I went, well, during my stay there over four years, I learned that on weekends, the National Guard had an armory there on campus, and they were called the fighting 45th, something or other. But in any case, every weekend, these guys who are in the National Guard, they get to come around down on campus and march around the oval. And I would see all the girls would come out and just start checking them out..

"Dear child. The whole tower. Doctor doll. Kiwi, he called logo. That's the voice of Wes Studi. In his most well-known role, playing toughest pawnee in dances with wolves. West sudie might just be the most recognizable indigenous actor working in Hollywood today. He's played Geronimo and red cloud to historically famous chiefs. And you may have seen him in mystery man last of the mohicans hostiles or avatar. Over the course of a career that spans all about 5 decades, he's been pawnee, Apache here on in pretty much every nation and tribe on turtle island. But his story goes much deeper. West studio was born in no fire hollow Oklahoma. He spoke only Cherokee until he was 5 years old. Wes's path to stardom wasn't a straightforward one. He's a Vietnam War vet, and was part of the American Indian movement before he turned up under the bright lights of Hollywood. West duty joins me from Santa Fe to talk about his life, his work, and his Oscar. Wes welcome to unreserved. Yeah, let's be unreserved. Unreserved as possible. So let's start with where you grew up. What was your childhood like and no fire hollow Oklahoma? Well, it's funny to ask. I was just back there maybe 6 weeks ago. And my cousin and I decided to take a little ride down through no fire hollow as a matter of fact, down to the old homestead where my aunt still lives. It's kind of on the side of a hill, there's a bluff that goes down maybe 25, 30 feet, something like that, which leads down to a much larger area which was actually old, old riverbed which, at the time of my youth there, it was actually used as where we grew everything you could imagine from onions to watermelons and everything in between squash and corn and tomatoes, you name it..
Donald Trump Mocks Rep. Nancy Mace for Trump Tower Video
"She's totally manipulated by raging never trumpers and the radical left Democrats that are poisoning our country. She's a terrible person and she has no idea what she's doing. Nancy mace right after hearing I was going to endorse a really wonderful person a different candidate. She went to New York and sit in front of the magnificent Trump towers. Anyone ever heard of Trump Tower? And did a commercial insinuating that I was endorsing her. She's standing in front of Trump Tower in New York. I'm saying, can you believe that? Pause that real quick. I'm sorry. That's about he's talking about Nancy mace, who's another South Carolina congresswoman who I believe is being called the Liz Cheney of the south. Let's continue.

"Packs a punch, especially around the Richie character, which is probably the most tragic figure in the kind of Wes Anderson galaxy. What do you like about it Amanda? I mean, it's just kind of the whole world of Wes Anderson like springs forth fully formed. It is amazing that it goes rush more tenon bounds. And even though I just said everything I said about you can see all the tricks and the ideas and the style in Rushmore that tannin bounds is what three years later. And so fully complete from the house itself, you know? And it's like a real house that he found and redesigned to talk about like a literal manifestation of his project. And the performances and the music and the colors, which I feel like PTA being like, the lights, but you know. But when you say what's Anderson, I think of those like, you know, the yellows and the reds and the warmth and I can see everything so composed and it really is from tenon bounds. And that also has a lot to do with how old I was when I saw it was the first one. I learned a lot about the rest of the world through this movie, which is probably what a noise every single person who can't stand Wes Anderson and, you know, there are a fair number of detractors and people who do use words like tweet and quirky and just a collection of references, but you know, sometimes you catch things at the right moment and it being so fully formed and me being so fully unformed, I was just like, oh my God. This is it. I think this movie has something that none of the other Wes Anderson movies has. And that's Gene Hackman. It's true. As a royal tenant, go back and watch denims. Holy moly. I mean, you know, famously these two didn't really get along that well west and Jean and west is a very exacting director. And by this point, Gene Hackman was a very seasoned actor. But he's like, I don't know if you know this, but I was in crimson tide. But he wasn't fit. I mean, he was his energy is unbelievable and powers the movie and you know, obviously like Luke Wilson's character is the sort of pain, the painful heart of the movie, but hackman is the engine, you know? Maybe Margot is the style and chaz is the anguish. But the neurosis, yeah. But holy cow, hackman is just on a thousand the whole time that scene between him and chaz in the closet full of all the board games when they're screaming at each other is just amazing. It's just electricity. When hackman just like jumps up to start screaming right back, it's so good. It's so funny. I just, you know, obviously we love hacking on the show. It's also got maybe the best Aaron Wilson of the entire collection. You like them? This whole time, yeah..

"And so, you know, again, Wes Anderson sort of reinventing how we understand certain wonderful actors. But this to me in terms of the, you know, obviously, the style and the opulence. And the nostalgia, even though it's like nostalgia for things that Wes Anderson was not alive for, and I was not alive for at all, which is for all of his movies. And that didn't really exist, right? You know, there are these fantasy lands. But how he's working with the same themes of a family, a group of people and a father son esque relationship, which this is not actually a father's son, but the gustave character and the zero character it's both about friendship, but a bit about family, and it's nice to see that Wes Anderson's like emotions evolve slightly over his career and are slightly more hopeful even though this is set against the backdrop of a base of World War II, essentially. 30s, you're up a made up country in Europe. So there is a lot of darkness on the edge, but this more hopeful mentorship relationship. And it's really funny. And I do also think this invented millennial pink. I think it literally did this is and obviously he was working in those color tones even in tenon bounds, but this this pink being in that poster, I truly think you can try and trace it to like every dumb object in your home now. Can I ask a question though about this movie? Yeah. So it's obviously like, this is one where I feel like I really noticed for I adore this movie, but you notice basically him putting reality at like a kind of step remove because he's like, rather than make this Switzerland or whatever, I'm going to create a fictional European country with a fictional dark force rising in Europe and we're going to kind of take out all the ugly stuff about World War II and keep the romance part about it..

I think I probably underrate this in the Bill Murray can, and then obviously it's pretty soon after lost in translation and, you know, not that far from Rushmore, this is kind of like the golden period of our late 90s guides, being like, hey, this is the guy. But this is really the guy. I also love the ocean. And love the Mediterranean, where most of this was filmed and just like the sunlight and the blue costumes.

"wes" Discussed on The Art of Charm
"For love. We got what you need. You shouldn't have to settle for anything less than extraordinary. Thank you everyone for tuning in now. Let's start the show today. We're speaking with west schaefer. West describes himself as a ruthlessly pragmatic sales trainer marketing consultant keynote speaker copywriter and crm automation expert. He has been the chief whispering officer at the sales. Whisper for the past fifteen years. And he's the author of the cells. Whisper way there ain't too much whispering going on up there so west shaver of the cells. Whisper podcast how are you doing the right. We'll have this edited. I mostly read the sales podcast. That'd be dry. We're so it's all together man. Oh no we've got to keep that in mind because it shows it shows that you're human thereby sees sees you superfluous every now and then your while you make a mistake. Yeah every once in a while we gotta we first and only one of all of doug and then at the end of the year. Aj gets the hit me upside the head for everyone that a lot of hits coming this year. Did you get started in sales. Wes oh man. I was a secret agent in the air force. They trained me to be this. This salesperson man. It was like this top secrets. More top secret than ufo's and area fifty one. You didn't even know. The air force had a sales. Division did you. You didn't you didn't. That's how it was. But yeah i was in the air force man and i got out in ninety seven because i wanted to be paid according to my production you know not just time in in grade time and service and you know i've been married at that time we're going on twenty six years now so we were married right at two years. We had a baby. We had another one on the way that we didn't know about and i left. I resign my commission as a captain. The air force and jumped into commission sales. It's interesting i think. All of us go through a a awakening in in our lives or at least some of us and for everyone else could come as well. But with that idea of when you're working for somebody else they're setting the wage of what you are worth and then you're like wait a minute. Other people make way more money than i do at an in an hour because they were setting with their work was worth and that becomes the minute you switch that frame then you begin looking for different and new opportunities. Yeah and that's i think being a w. two employees at least in sales and maybe across the board but i mean my world's always been sales. I think we've been sold a little bit of a bill of goods. You know unless. You're an entrepreneur. Doing your own thing. You know you a crap. You're not living your greatest fullest potential. And you know you're a wimp and insight you know. I've had over five hundred interviews on the sales podcasts and talked to a lot of off good people with a lot of good stories and a lot of them went out on their own but they did it after building a foundation right paying off debt. saving up to to make that launch. So you know that w two job can be a good thing. I think everything has a trade off. I think what happens. Is we show up to work. And we're not. We're not truly passionate about it so we're not focused on it so we're not focused on. We're not producing all that we can. And we don't put saw we can't so we gotta stay later about a block to get to catch up on what we should have been doing what we could have done. We truly focus for eight hours an hour. Like i'll give my company all all of my life. I get too early. And i stayed late and i missed dinner with the family. I got to be out on my own to be fulfilled. Well maybe you just need to focus. You know maybe you need to give them a full eight hours and get your home you know. And then you have the energy and the time to do other things and maybe that other thing is to launch your own thing okay. Maybe not but you know they say. Multitasking is the art of doing multiple things poorly right. I think we could all benefit from a little more focus on what the hell we're working. Well that's certainly brings up a point in cells that if you are going to go out on your own. One of the things that you're going to have to do is to sell your value so your abilities bring awareness to what you're able to do and number one it's about creating content rate creating things for people to be able to see and put value upon then to being able to promote the things that you're able to create and then third to capitalize on that create creativity of of selling those products services or ideas and with those three things. If picking up sells gives you an opportunity to not only sell yourself but self-rule anybody it is a skill that is transferable and to anywhere that you're going to go. Well the biggest misnomer. I hear from people you know. I'm not in sales like we're all in sales all the time okay. It's like poker if you're sitting at the table you'll know who the chump is then. It's okay yeah you know you walk into a restaurant. Well you gotta you know. Stand in the your way approach stand in line approach. The hostess put your name on his forty five minutes. Please go stand in the corner and we'll call you when we're ready for you. Then you're seated in. The menu is presented in a certain way. Oh happy hour. Prices are only available. If.
Wes Crill of Dimensional Fund Advisors Shares His Take on Inflation
"Are you thinking about inflation and is it affecting the way you're thinking about portfolios you know. Break it down to us about you. Know your your sort of thirty thousand view of inflation in and what to do about it. Yeah absolutely i mean depending on you talked to lots of differing viewpoints in terms of their expectations for inflation. So it's helpful for us to just look at. What is the market in aggregate telling us about inflation expectations and you know we can see that from some indicators for example you can use break even inflation or the difference in yields between nominal and inflation protected treasuries at the same maturity. You can use the you know the the forward inflation expectations something like the five year five years so if i look at the five year break even inflation rate right now or at least as of a few weeks ago it was hovering around right around two point four percent to five year five year ford inflation which is telling you something about inflation expectations for the five period after the next five years ago basically covering ten full years here. That number was around two point one percent. Both of those numbers are pretty well in line with historical trends so looking at those indicators. It doesn't seem that the market inaccurate is expecting particularly high inflation and expected inflation is incorporating into security prices whether you're buying stocks or bonds or anything that's in nominal terms. You're getting compensation for expected inflation now. Some investors might be particularly sensitive to inflation and that means they might be concerned with unexpected inflation so for example if consumer prices rise more than the broad market is expecting then they might want to seek additional protection for that and there are options and sort of like the the cova vaccines. We have different ways to reach the same level of inauguration. you can us treasury. Inflation protected securities Which will hedge on expected inflation. There's a consideration there which is the the yields on those very very low though the real interest rates for us treasuries are negative across the board across all maturities Then there's also the possibility of having a fixed income solution which combines inflation swap overlays. So you're getting you're going to get paid real inflator actual inflation and then it's overlaid on corporate bond strategies. We can expand your opportunity said to different levels of credit in different currencies as well so there are options for investors who do have concerns about unexpected inflation. But i think getting to this notion that expected inflation which whatever the market believes is gonna come to pass is being compensated and current security prices and let's face it the market when they're producing prices like this. They were very difficult to out. Guess we all have our opinions on what's going to happen in the future. But looking at the data around active fund managers outgassing market. Prices is very difficult

Since before shawn miller got fired. I have talked to a couple of people out for your. Oh quick i get your thoughts on it. There are a couple of people i've talked to. Who will never be not convinced. That tommy lloyd was approached about this like a month ago and basically said we want you to be the next coach in gonna fire shawn miller. I'm not saying that happened. I'm telling you there are people that believe this and this has been wired for a long time now. There were a couple of days here the past couple of days where the search kind of went on a not a pause but they topped the brakes through more interviews. That happened on tuesday. And they did legitimately interview miles. Simon damon stoudamire. Jason terry josh passenger. All these people were interviewed.

Thanks so i'm sure the audience really going to enjoy this station. And what you guys see in the financial markets right now. Toby whereas and i wrote a book of fairy long time ago now. It's almost a decade since it came out and that's pretty good explanation of sort of the underlying process which is like the screen basically and then under a few things on top of that. I think the most interesting thing in the market at the moment is kathy would and ach. Etf's you might remember. In the early dot com days those funchal janus and the head break performances go great flows like a of flaws as a result and they were focused on smaller quid. Take names said janus had these gripe flows into these very illiquid stocks and they degrade performance as a result and it was probably van driving up. The performance of those stocks has been a similar argument made about ach that they tend to focus on smaller. Non-profitable take stokes and Sorta gigantically big of the last few years. It's now sort of a third or fourth biggest. Ats show out there that flows now that go into these small illiquid tech stocks of they control prices of these textbooks. Had this little wobble of the last few days colson redemptions for them which may cause them to do some selling as well they also have been exposure tasteless I just think that that's the driver of the market at the moment is potentially getting some redemptions having to sell out of some of those stocks which will push an the names and a very sort of beholden to what tesla Much big stuff. But it's still quite volatile. Hasn't made a great deal of money and so there's some risks that creates Cascade selling an odd gets coordinated.

Disney Plus Launches Star, A Streaming Outlet With More Grown-Up Fare
"Knew that star was launching february twenty third which recording this yesterday. I am in canada. So i have access to it along with australia. New zealand parts of europe in singapore. So a few countries have this new section on their disney plus app. And it's a big deal. It's a big deal for me. Because we get all the wes anderson movies. It's a big deal for some other people because they get like twenty four and richard devine from window. Central is tweeting about how much she loves. Twenty four and jack bowers back baby and all that so. I just wanted to talk about where we are in terms of streaming. I know disney or marvel disney made a big bunch of big announcement this morning On when the next set of mcu in star wars shows will be released on disney plus. And then there's all the other services right. There's hbo max there's peacock there's discovery plus there's Paramount plus. I guess if you want to call that new and all this leads to confusion for people who just want to find the show to watch. So let's start with disney. They now have ninety five million subscribers. They are doing really really well. In terms of expansion into new countries. This new star lodge is a big deal so give us the t. l. Dr if you will of why star launched now and why. It's a big deal for people outside the us lawyers. It's always the lawyers. Yeah i say why did it launch now because this is when they could finally agree on. Okay here's where the contracts in so we can pick things up. Yeah the the. The really oversimplified version is this in the united states. We have hulu and hulu has basically everything. That's not under the five pillars of disney plus in those disney star. Wars marvel pixar in national geographic. Anything outside of that. you what. You're forgetting well. I was gonna say you're forgetting the pillar of twentieth century fox and twentieth century fox which is on hulu so so virtually anything outside of those five pillars in the. Us will find on hulu yes. They're exceptions the problem is hulu is not anywhere in the rest of the world. It's a decidedly american phenomenon and so disney needed a way to get all this content to everybody else in pay by the way they get to charge a little more for it too and that became star the way they first announced it they do it. What other earnings calls last year It was a little like just weird. I didn't even fully understand it at the time and it took a little while to sink in and then the developer not developer days there investor days into simmer november december whenever that was explained. It a little better really. It's just that simple if it's if it's content you can probably find on hulu here in the us it's going to be on star everywhere else. So given that disney twentieth century fox. They bought a. They bought that from fox which was previously a shareholder in hulu disney is now the majority shareholder of hulu. Why can't they just bring hulu to the rest of the world. What is that. I mean i don't know the brand well who owns. Who is the issue there although disney now entirely owns who if i correct right they finish tying their last pieces of hulu like two years ago for for all intents and purposes and there might be somebody with a little sliver but it it's a disney joint partially owned by comcast but they're buying it slowly over the next few years right. Yeah that was an agreement that was made a couple of years ago but But that's why comcast is okay. All of our stuff is leaving hulu at this date because we will no longer have a share in it and it's all going to peacock But yeah the reason that who didn't exist in all these other countries was media streaming lauzon like entertainment and streaming laws vary by country by country. It takes a lot of money to get the rights to a decent amount of shows in places other than the us so it was a matter of hulu. Didn't really have the time or the or the money to spend on investing in trying to build up a catalog and other countries the only other country that hulu is in outside of the united states is japan. And i'm not sure how much longer is going to be there since they're probably going to roll it into star but it's disney had the clout to roll around the disney also already had rights to a lot of these things or the released they in contracts and have the rights back right so it's just easier to bring a new sub domain umbrella underneath disney plus put all the twentieth century fox content in there called star and make it a separate kind of expansion for everybody who already has disney plus. All star is disney. Plus for grownups. It's harder to always you know proper phones not anymore. But that's a. That's a good analogy. Yeah all right. So we we have star. It's got all the twentieth century fox stuff. I think it's got more than that. That's also where a lot of like. Abc television stuff ended up. It's also where a bunch of other like indie stuff that disney and fox had bought up over the years. Anything fox searchlight his ended up in there. That's why it's it's a huge a collection of content. I'm amazed that they were able to get the international rights for those together quickly. Enough for star for the international launches. So the question. I have is is disney. Plus going to host new content in star is that is this where they're going to compete with netflix and hbo for adult viewership or are they still kind of not really aiming at that audience. No actually. I think you've got that right in. It's going to get a little weird because contents can vary by country but you can see that a little bit in the in the Release lists you get you get stuff that is decidedly more adult in there and and part of that is just from the content. That's coming out of those houses in the first place. If you look at specifically fx stuff here it's called fx. Hulu it is it is. I don't know that. I'd go so far as to say it's r rated but it's pretty damn close. Fx is yeah fx is definitely not child-friendly content like ninety percent of it like isn't fx. Were archer lives yeah. Fx is is archer archer archers ethics original sort of But yeah we look at the. The new exclusive stuff like fx on hulu like depths. Was one. I loved last year. I thought it was excellent right up until the end and it went. A little off the rails. Mrs america was on there as well. I mean there's stuff that the you wouldn't even otherwise necessarily see on cable but that they're streaming in that fashion. lets them. do you know just a little more than they. otherwise would have And it's not something that you would see on disney plus so this gives them another conduit for that stuff as well. Yeah and the brand new original content is also going. It's going to vary by the audience category. 'cause like anything that's marvel or star wars is not going to be listed under the star brand period. If it belongs to one of those temples it's still going to be disney plus branded and everything starts going to have the both labels at the bottom whenever they're advertising it but it's a matter of if we're going to do original series if it's pg or if it's pg thirteen below it'll probably be disney plus branded and if it's not pg thirteen disney and pg thirteen and up will probably be star

And that means that the people that we celebrate and champion incredibly homogeneous and when wikipedia launched the internet was a very small space and it was very dominated by particular types of people. This kind of you know. Tech bro attitude that we still see in silicon valley and places like that majority white majority western a lot from north america some from western europe and those were the first people to start using it engaging in contributing to wikipedia backed according to a twenty twenty study. Eighty seven percents of wikipedia. Contributors are men with media includes wikipedia wick wicky quote a bunch of other platforms and for just this bias in. Authorship creates a bias in who gets a biography so this huge systematic bias against women against people of color against people from the global south against people who are from any kind of particular marginalized group. So it's kind of two things when we have a very diverse editorship and to the things they writes about a not very diverse and this is obviously impacted by the way that science celebrates people and who took about who we define as notable. Right right just to confirm by. Now you've written what nine hundred articles for the site. Oh no no. How many i've written i've written one thousand two hundred one thousand two hundred whatever so sub usually get a bit excited so obviously that's not three hundred sixty five times three so sometimes i get a little carried away but in general i try and stick to one a day sometimes. Yeah yeah. I mean. I've been going for three. Yes so i've done a pretty good job that in those i. We thought a lot about how to ask you this question. Because twelve hundred articles is an extraordinary accomplishment as far as contributing to this encyclopedia. And so the question we're going to go with is if you could build a quarantine bubble with some of the people that you've written about living or deceased who would you include and why should question so so for sure. I'd have to have some of the people developing vaccines enough air. The person who created the oxford vaccine which is is the vaccine this just been approved for use in the uk. A viral vector vaccine is a phenomenal professor. Sara gilbert sara gilbert has had this kind of fascinating rich directory working on the development of a whole bunch of different vaccines that can walk in different corona viruses and kiss kubat. I don't know if you've come across any of your reporting. She's she's a young african american women who is at the national institute of health and had walked back scenes for for sars and mers. So has this really great legacy but also alongside. I kind of scientific research. An extraordinary publication list works to support people from undeserved communities and walks to really amplify the voices of scientists who too often overlooked but also to support young people and getting into an ethic about science. So that people at different ends of that curric- his kizzie is still very young. Where saratoga established professor but both of them have this kind of extraordinary pathway to really ultimately creating the thing. That's going to save the entire world so suddenly. If i if i had according to about they would be in it. I think that. I mean how many people might out in my quarantine babo because i could keep going. There's no official guidance but the often cited wisdom is less than ten. I'm so primed and ready to tell you stories about everyone. I'm so excited about them. So mainly because i have been. She's someone who i wrote about right at the beginning of my wikipedia. A mathematician who gladys west. She was born in virginia in the thousand nine hundred and she went to college. She went to a historically black college and university to study maths. She goes off in becomes the teach She then eventually what the us government. Wes she did the early computations and calculations for gps so for all of the technologies that almost everything that we do day to day relies on. Now you know you get in your car keys your phone. You try and navigate took particular location. You use the technology that gladys west created. And when i made gladys west page in two thousand eighteen is really hard to find. Information about. Her book is what for the us government so lots of things are adopted. A couple of months. After i put the page live so after i'd finished writing it and put it onto wikipedia. She was selected by the bbc is one of the top one hundred women so she went into the kind of top one hundred women in the world for any intentional creation. Contribution ebba and when you're on a web page like fat when you're on a page so much traffic and insight people hop over to the wikipedia page really quickly so you could just see the numbers of page views of of the wikipedia. Page going up and up and that meant that more and more people contributed to it so grew story grew. How did that make you feel. I just loved it. I was reflecting on this a lot with with my parents lockdown wife. I kept going live. I kept doing this. And i find nothing more rewarding honestly than seeing other people get recognized then champion for what they've done so absolutely love to have quarantine bubble that so many things that i want us. Yeah and you're collecting. I suppose historical information across different websites and books to write these biographies. Has it ever feel like time travel. Yeah completely does feel like time travel. It's it's so it's so interesting. The things that i find kind of thrilling and exciting now feels such a kind of privilege in a rush to be able to get access to all of the resources that we can do. Now you know online libraries. Nine archives sites archived magazines scientific journals extraordinary places that that turn to for this and there are times when you just feel like fantastic achievement. So so if you see in a lot of the world's when women get married they take their partner's name so sometimes it's quite difficult to find out things about their lives if they got married and all of their publications in this new name. And when you find that one link that one connection that tells you that maiden name and then you can go back and find their phd thesis or who was there examining all this extra level of information. So when i get to that. I'm like jump off the sofer like this is great and say yeah. It's completely like a portal into another world. Right i mean. I've chills just listening to you. Talk about this kind of forensic reconstruction of people's lives and who they were outside of who. They married or other kinds of societal markers of that. Yeah a big part of it. I think a big part of my efforts wikipedia. Who i've met the people that we've trained editor phones is to not just make pages about women no make pages about people of color but to make them as good as the comparable page would-be about a white man. Yeah yeah you've been amazing way of connecting all these dots. I really appreciate hearing that I wanna ask you one one last thing. Which is i know that in a lot of ways just talking to you. It sounds like this project is part of such a bigger desire to see science really include nbc driven by all kinds of people. And what do you think it will really take to bring more women and poc's into science so that they stay. Oh such a good question and such a huge one. I mean they're very preliminary simple things that low hanging fruit. If you will know why we don't already have in place you know proper care and support for people who have caring responsibilities so whether that's you know elderly parents or sick parents or especially now in the pandemic who seeing the importance of the childcare and how that skin influence women scientific careers if they're having to work from home but i think more than that we need to really look a scientific institutions and ask really critical questions about why people are leaving. Why do we see. So few black professes. Why do we see so few women in position of leadership. Why do lgbt he. Plus scientists not feel comfortable being out when they're in the scientific workplace and then really put money to and take action to address those individual needs. But i think from a kind of how you get more diverse people into science. I really honestly think the answer is improving our education systems and really support our teachers better. Pay them as well as we pay are bankers so that they stay and so that they create kind of inspiring science lessons. Then go out and got this next generation to come in who keep pushing for this change that we want
