One experience a heat stroke. She has called the Long Island every day. She's the only house in her area without power. Been on bed, rest most of the pregnancy and this is you know, having a baby during a pandemic is one thing. And now at eight, the extra layer of not having power and not knowing if I'm gonna have to bring a new horn home into a hot house, not really helping, she says. Customer service reps tell her because she is a single outage. Our house is not a priority. One of the latest responses I got was that I should go stay at somebody's house that has power during a pandemic. When we've been quarantining for the past five months, Senator James Gordon wants the president of Long Island to resign or be removed so far, the spokesperson for the utility has not commented.

Interview With Commander Kirk Lippold

"Welcome back. This is two of my interview with Kamenda Cook Leopold retired us. Commend. Commanding Officer of the US ask coal. When When it came under a suicide terror attack. by Al Qaeda back in the port of Yemen and. This was a In many ways the event that foreshadowed to nine eleven we import one we were talking about what happened back in that time we've been talking about leadership and politically how latest. Military has become. Driven by politics I want to expand further into this conversation I'm really grateful. Commend Leopold is with us here because. We are in a very different time as we're having this conversation as recording compensation were in the midst of a pandemic in two, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty however. There is more going on here and I want to dive into the political understandings of what's going on because. Politics, is a very interesting thing when it comes to the military because. The military is famously neutral. One about how serving your commander in chief to protect the country. CETERA. But for the first time, I've been studying politics. And actually American politics for since I was ten years old. and. Fla. First Time I can remember you now getting military leaders coming out and speaking. So yet retired Admiral William mcraven new came out and criticize trump about what was happening with the Kurds you've got general mathis who served under trump coming out and talking about trump and doing militarily, and now you've got trump talking about this the bounty that Russia's put out on American soldiers and saying it's a hoax. First of all, I want to ask you what is your thought on military leaders. Millet certainly retired ones but coming out and actually doing what they've never been I don't remember ever doing before and saying this is out of order. What's your thoughts on? Why I think you're you're crossing the line and I think part of that was driven by decision. The United States made post Vietnam where we chose to no longer have a draft where we would select people to serve in the military for a defined period of time but instead went to the all volunteer force and the way I have always approached it is. When you choose to serve and you'd like, I've mentioned in in part one was you choose that life of consequence in the service to your nation Yes enduring your period of service there may come decisions. That are going to be political in nature and let's face it. You can have the military giving you orders but who ultimately gives that direction? It are political appointees. And if you as a military officer spun to mentally disagree with the direction of those orders being given by your political masters because that's how our nation is designed in, you really get to choices in life. Put Up and shut up or get out. and. At some point in time serving in the military is not supposed to be a job for life. You hang up your Spurs. If you stayed long enough, you'll get a retirement check every single mom and then guess what go find work that contributes positively to the future of our nation, and that's I've tried to do is to give back to teach people those leadership skills. That we need out in the business world, I mean when eighty percent of the retired admirals generals go to work for the defense industry they're not sharing that expertise that they could be sharing with business in the civilian community to make even better and make sure that we understand as Americans how the military works and how we think wire we are the respected institution that we are. I think it's very disappointing when you got a lot of these military officers who choose to speak out against the president of the United States because. If you're going to have a military where they've enjoyed all the benefits including the political benefits of being senior in rank like that, and then they want to use that positional authority still wearing their stars on their callers or on their sleeve to somehow now feel that they are entitled to speak out about the commander in chief. That's fine. If you want to take on the policies, that's one thing when. You attack the individual I don't care what president it is whether it's President Bush. President Obama President Trump Benue are crossing a line at that point that even though you may have come from the civilian ranks served in the military in your civilian again if you want to maintain that professional ethos exemplified by General Marshal. Way Back in post World War Two. Then guess what challenged the policies don't challenge the people.

Philadelphia public school teacher worries about 'conservative' parents listening in on virtual classes

"A teacher in Philadelphia that I find not surprising but unexpected that somebody would actually say it out loud. As you know, an awful lot of Americans are facing Ah, fall where their kids do not go back to government run bricks and mortar schools. They will do some on line or distance learning. I don't see the problem with that. In fact, I think having heard from parents who are doing that with their kids right now, and they were doing it even before China virus arrived, it'll actually be a better solution. The problem is the government run public schools populated with union represented teachers. They say. We don't want to do this because they realize that one's parents and students and taxpayers are given a choice. They may decide that the choice of distance learning work so well for their family that their kids never go back. To a bricks and mortar government school. And that's bad news for all those union represented teachers. Well, one teacher, the admission I mentioned a moment ago. This is the one that this teacher in Philadelphia and I have a feeling there's more than one out there Fact I'd love to get a call from one of them. He worries out loud. He tweeted out that he worries the conservative parents are going to listen in on some of the virtual classes. I mean, if your kids are learning at home, they're doing distance education, and you hear a teacher starting to shovel out. Ah lot of political propaganda. That some of the parents might actually object, and I hope they dio this guy Matthew Kay teaches English at the Science Leadership Academy, which is a public school in Philadelphia. Over the weekend, he tweeted out that he's concerned about the damage that parents might cause if they over here, lessons on topics like gender and sexuality and race. The daily wire reports. So far this fall. Virtual class discussions will have many potential Spectators, parents and siblings in the same room. Where will never be quite sure who's over overhearing the discourse? What does that do to our equity and inclusion work? He then described how conservative parents are his chief concern. Listen what he's worried about his teachers. There used to be able to shovel stuff into your kidsheads, and you never find out exactly what it is. You may have one or another child come home and say, Boy, the teacher went on a rant about Donald Trump today or went on a rant about black lives matter or went on a rant about sexuality. And the parent hears it. But there's no way to prove it. What happens when parents can actually hear the lessons? Frankly, I'd be happy if parents were able to hear all of the lessons that their kids are subject to. And if they find a reason to object to it, then, for goodness sake, call the school board called the superintendent and to say You can't do that to my kids. Parents should have the right to do that. And now that

The parents were never given the chance to address this critical issue until now, one week before school begins. And despite the fact that many parents do not believe this agreement provides adequate amount of instruction for secondary students, they feel think it's just too late for us to make a difference at this point. That's just one parent who spoke during this meeting. There are several speakers Both coming in on the phone and some in person. It was just yesterday.

How the Sperm Donation Industry is Breaking Families

"Last month a wired magazine story described a storm that's brewing in the world of sperm donation as at home. DNA, test kits become more popular people all over the world are making unexpected family discoveries. These discoveries apparently have a name NPR. Or Non Parental events at home DNA test takers are discovering DADS or half siblings or dozens of kids that they never knew about, and they're mostly not happy about it. In fact, a growing subculture complete with lobbying organizations self help literature and support groups is emerging for people making these unwelcomed genetic discoveries. One therapist juice developed a podcast dedicated to helping people walk through these kinds of situations told wired that people who uncover hidden family secrets through DNA. Testing often exhibit the classic cycle of grief after the initial shock comes anger and. Depression, their stories are all the reasons we need to take a sober minded look at sperm donation a practice that goes largely unquestioned in Western societies. The four billion dollar sperm donation industry is shockingly unregulated especially in the US children born from sperm donors are among the victims of the bad ideas of the sexual revolution. They do not have the legal right to request information about their biological fathers on the turn eighteen, which means that in most states, these children don't even have a right to their own family medical histories, of course, anyone. Who opposes or even questions assisted reproduction technologies like sperm donation are often called prudish cast his grumpy old GRANDPA huffing about a teenager blue hair after all we're told it's not really harming anyone in reality. However, there are plenty of reasons to oppose sperm donation even if we don't find the practice achey first of all, the industry dehumanizes men god-given ability to procreate transformed into a crude financial transaction as is the case with egg donation. The way the product is marketed dehumanizes image bearers, reducing them to a list of so-called desirable qualities. Like. Height hair-color supposed athletic ability or where they went to college. This isn't some enlighten new way to make babies. It's rebranded eugenics. Sperm donation also dehumanizes children robbing them the right to know who their dad is and leaving them in the dark as to whether or not. Their Dad even knows they exist in fact, the industry relies on such secrecy. The FDA places no rules on how many children a sperm bank allows to be born from just one donor while some banks might impose their own limits the country's largest sperm bank which. Is in California limits to twenty five to thirty family units per man I family unit by the way could include multiples meaning that a set of twins or triplets only counts as one unit while some activists have been calling for more regulation on the sperm donation industry for years the problems inherent to the system that's corrupt from the ground up won't be regulated away the corruption and the sperm donation industries rooted in its very warped view of human sexuality and the Family God's designed for family is baked into the very nature of. Reality like gravity children hunger for connection with your parents. For example, study suggests that many adoptees do better emotionally and socially when they know who their biological parents are and understand the adoption process. But of course, sperm donation doesn't repair a fracture like adoption does rather it creates the fracture permitting even incentivizing a view of children as products and this country eighty percent of customers who use sperm banks are either same sex couples who've intentionally chosen a sterile union only demand children or women intentionally pursuing single motherhood despite the overwhelming scientific literature that. Shows kids do best with both a mom and a dad or as the headline of a New Yorker article. Put It years ago Dan Quayle was right. This wired article just tells what is in fact in old story just with new variables of people who long for family but are suffering in a culture where the family has become. So broken whenever children and family building turned into big business trails of grieving people are left behind reeling from what we now call non parental events the broken us at the heart of the sperm. Donation Industry begins with the man who've used pornography to sell genetic product and it ends with a child shocked to learn that his dad isn't really his dad olive which serves to remind us that just because something is culturally normal does not mean that it should be true moral clarity cannot come from whether or not we find something weird or icky that kind of thing changes it can only come from God's created intent for the world for his image bearers, which is in his own words and is proven time after time to be.

"Guess. What Day it is it is Monday and that means today just like I've done every Monday since two, thousand six. I've asked you if you have taken a few minutes to ponder where your life is the good. The bad. The. Ugly. I've asked you to to do your homework. To look into what you like and want to keep and make sure you do like make sure you do want to keep it in can keep it. To look into what you don't like it. Maybe you want to change when you do that will you self assess your life magic happens things start to go in the direction you want them to go. So do your homework today my perfect week planner you can get it at perfectly planner. Dot Com is a great way to make sure you can do that every single week. So, goal setting is a big part of what I like to do. I'm a big ask Ole Center, I am I just reach out there and say, okay, let's go for something that I really believe I can do if I put my mind to it I'm GonNa go forward, but it's bigger than maybe I am today now you are a goal setting machine you are this whole business is something I do right now is whole lifestyle I have lived now since why started this way back in two thousand three's when I actually started doing this kind of thing. It all started from a big ask Ole it did I just kind of decided as let's do this and let's go out and make it happen and it's been my life ever since site believe in goals like that. I believe you're hardwired. So here's what I believe. I believe that when you get this idea in your head. And you believe in the idea and you get excited about the idea dome you're often running. That's what happens and usually you're not often running because you don't believe in the idea it's not big enough to excite you and so they whatever it's I like what I have today. Why should I go for that? Right? So make sure it's really big. Make. Sure. It's awesome. A big ass school at a Bam. Make it a big Bam goal K.. But let me ask you a question. Have you ever found yourself and I know the answer this because I know you have I'm not smart not in that sense no I've seen it all the time and I had it happened to me all the time too smart are. Have you ever found yourself with goal and you push the pause button. Just Second. Doesn't make sense does it Seriously I decided I really want this. No I want this. I lost sleep over I spent time finding what my big goal was going to be then. At didn't do anything. Or maybe you got excited about it, you get all revved up and you're not moving. Amihai. Revved up and you're excited and moving, but it's not working. Wait a second I don't know which one it is, but but the. In all cases, I'll tell you what I run into. I have the the very, very good fortune of working with lots clients. All Week Long I'm on the phone at one time. I love it I really do I pick up the phone, call him we have a schedule call once a week and I pick up the phone like two or three times how you doing check in on I like to do that. But lots of times say are revved up lots of times they are moving they're trying, but they're not getting the progress they want that's unfamiliar. So I learned over time to ask a couple of questions because that's what I do. I question asks this. Do you know what your goal looks like. And do you really believe you can attain it? If, you can't really clearly see what you want. It's Kinda. Hard to get there. Isn't it? You can understand it can't be really vague, but it's vague drift around. So you need to know what it really looks like, and secondly you need to believe you can get it and it believe that if I work hard enough I've acquired the skillset if I if we put the time in I, can get there. If you don't believe, you can do it. Then you never gonNA go after it. Right. So that's the first thing. Do you believe in the goal and do you know exactly what it looks like? So you can see it when when it's in front of you can grab it. I guess you know depends. Second thing to say, do you have a roadmap for cheating that goal we all need a roadmap your hard wired to have a roadmap. How do you get there? I know we can put a GPS and just turn left when it says turn left right let's not the way it works in life. It really is much more comfortable and as a human were more comfortable in the world, we know what we have to do. So when you look at your goal, you want to go after you believe you can get it and you say this is at least to the best of my ability today were with the knowledge I have today. These are the steps I'm going to take in. This is how I'm GonNa get there if you have a roadmap, you're pretty good shape. Now you got to be flexible. Things are going to change along the way, but you need a place to start to start a middle and an end. So you know, it looks like. You believe you can do it. And you have a roadmap at least to start a place, you can head down that road as Jack Canfield. Said you heading down a dark path you take the first couple of steps in the light start to go on. So maybe you can't see it from here, but you gotta step down that path I. Right? But. Sometimes there's something different in here. Not really doing this longtime ago, and this is basically about being effective in not just busy you've heard before. I'll always ask if these things are already in place I'll say listen the steps you're taking the action steps you're taking every single day. Are they sufficient to reach your goal? He the response I get is usually good question. Also I think. So that's why I asked. It are the steps you're taking sufficient to reach your goal in other words. Are The actions you take actually aligned with the goal and are they going to move forward or the keeping busy?

Open idol even looking at it from one angle ciders thought it was a water of black water hose which water was coming out of it gets its abandoned but if you look at it from the other direction is like. Ten thousand wires hanging out of the, but they will cut very cleanly. And he goes how long ago did you cut this? They broke it about ten days ago he does no one's come to bobby nope because then it must be abandoned. Because usually when these things break, they know right away. Oh yeah and. Because there was a it was his is the bucket. So one half of the why was ripped out of the wall and laying face into the mud so I just thought it was a hollow black water to. And the other one was sticking out from the angle. You couldn't feel the wires anyway. And then about ten feet away in the trees have grown into one of the trees is A. Porcelain. Placard from. Bell telephone. And it's grown into it's gotta be from like the fifties on in the forties because half engulfed in the tree in his bell telephone. So that must be and then when we dug up a French drain by the Barn. By the other by the machine shop, which is about four hundred feet away they found the same cable. So it runs diagonally through my property right under every single holy Dick So. It's abandoned but the little tiny Internet cable, which is about as thick as a pencils broken and I'm gonNA figure six after we get off. labile learn something new. Yeah, it's a pain in the butt though a strip does tiny little wires and well, I'm Gonna I'm GonNa. Try need twice I gotTA. Yeah I'M GONNA try to do a connector connector connecting connector. You know. A peace in the middle, and then just cover covered with like six pounds of lactate and put it back on the ground. Everyone's passionate. Everyone's punching this computers for now. It's not gonNA work. That's what people do. That's fun. Anyway other than that. What are you up to? What have I been up to whip building trailers didn't put a movie out last week as building trailers. We're building eight bullet Bourbon trailers that are going to go to Texas in the last ones I built over probably few weeks maybe four weeks four to five weeks considering the prototype. Now, this eight I started last Thursday now it's almost one week later and they're just about there about seventy five percents done. WHO's still out to do the doors for build bumpers but with a team here, the team that I got helped me out is incredible everything's moving along swiftly. And, we'll make tires. Sixteen fake tires at a plywood. In every single tired uses up just about one full sheet of plywood. And takes thirty minutes to cut because there's I didn't count this probably sixty pieces that I cut out like little arcs of circles we connect them together. To make related them together like a like A. Layer cake then six layers apply what makes up one tire. When fake tire everyone's like why don't you just buy tires because that means that I have to buy tires with Rennes connect the rims to something that's both if I keep it all would I could just nail screw everything. And if I do the cost analysis, it's probably the same amount of money to buy the plywood and take the time to put it together. But I don't have the the ability to just nail in screw I have to Baltin get involved all the Have to down the rabbit hole of using the trailer equipments connect tires as opposed to just using screws announced nothing has to turn so it doesn't matter.

Toga stables are the same guys who owned funny side the winner of the two, thousand, three, Kentucky Derby and preakness they showed up to each triple crown race in a yellow school bus, not a limo. It was a scene to which many of us could relate but I'm going to give you a comparison of two other. Owners of horses running in Saturday's travers they are and Lori Hall who owned the Third Place Finisher in the Belmont Max Player and Orlando and Jonathan Noda who liked their travers entrant I line are the longest of longshots George Hall is the founder of a Hedge Fund, the Clinton Group that company's assets reached a high of five and a half billion dollars in two thousand, sixteen. Orlando Noda is a thirty one year old trainer who co all of his horses with his brother. Jonathan who's in the car business? George Hall and his wife Lori sold a six level. Manhattan penthouse in two thousand seventeen for somewhere around thirty eight million dollars. Orlando notice biggest return on investment so far has been the horse not loves a fight who not claimed for ten thousand dollars in May of two, thousand nineteen and whose win a month later represented his trainers I ever. T loves a fight won four races for his trainer and finished second last week in the John Morrissey at Saratoga. You. Get the idea Max player for George and Lori. Hall won the withers stakes back in February and finished third in the Belmont. STAKES IN JUNE FIRST LINE FOR ORLANDO. Noda just earned his first win in four tries and he's returning on only ten days rest to take on an imposing field. But if his trainers story is any harbinger, don't count first line out and we are pleased to welcome to win the game for the first time the trainer of First Line Orlando Noda what went into the decision to turn this horse around in just ten days. The horse came out of it good and I nominated him prior to even run especially. Like figure that especially wasn't GonNa go I was I was GONNA test my luck there and restaurant him because. The horse had shown me talent ever since I had him and I think got strike while the iron is hot right now and everything is just clicking on all cylinders. So I. Think we're just going to give it a go is not every day that we can have a three year old peak at the right time via because of this corona virus that maybe I might might just be able to pull off the upset and get my derby points that that I high horse up about the beginning. You would said to a couple of racing aficionados over the winter that you had a derby horse and first line what made you think that then Oh no the horses super talented it from the first time that we breathed him. We knew we had something special. I'm not the lightest of riders and horses just noting on track with me and I just can't picture it. Any other way because everything has played out to where it should as he broke his. Maiden here in Saratoga and I think the past two races, six furlongs, it was just the the too short for him for his long strident. He just went comfortable and those fractions buying the mollering Nathan not many horses hold up biting the whole time that they are at the top of the stretch hometown in first line and they've been at it. Right from the START I line on the outside pokes ahead and front hometown continues to battle down at the rail. Now, they're at the eighth bowl it is first line and hometown go to battle for a mile and a furlong here first line hud and front hometown not giving up they come for the finish and first line is first under the wire. Race I'm wondering if he's even cooled out yet from that race, I mean that was affirmed and Alydar Rier Dan Against Jaipur was neck and neck for a mile and an eighth I mean, how do you think that part of a racist going to affect him the ten days notwithstanding? Even fresh I'm not doing much with him and. Keep Afresh to the to the race. Then you gotta show up on the race checking in, and that's how he is all game once it gets onto the track. IS A. Very level-headed. Once once he gets into training just like train I'm just giving just. Keep them -freshing raider fire. For for the drivers.

"It's a lot more memorizing facts than it is just play play play play. All of my kids have used that and they use it for refresher to when they start to slow down on their affects. We certainly use you tomb. You can learn nearly anything on Youtube. But that one does take some parental oversight for sure. But you know what is really helpful on Youtube is when your kid is learning something in their textbook, and you're not really sure the topic then late in the evening. When they're in bed, you look it up on Youtube and you watch and you figure out what it is supposed to be learning. So that you can explain it to them the next day and then they think you're an expert on everything, so there's definitely types that I've gone to look. We taught physics this past year and my goodness. That was many years ago for me, so I needed refresher on that to keep up with my boys doing physics. There were some really great things going on online. During the quarantining that educational programs that were put on specifically for kids that were home and that. Are Continuing in in some former other for example. We watched Mark Rober. That's his name. The he had science demos and he did it I think every day for a week or two weeks or something every day at four o'clock, there was Mark Rober Science Demos and he did very fun topics that would really take the kids. Interest, of course, one of the he always starts with a question like a good scientist and one of the questions was does a human being way more or less after passing gas now I bet most parents can actually answer that question. I couldn't answer the question, so of course the kids really wanted to know lots of silly things. Along the lines of mythbusters. Presented a little more educationally, there was a there were things from the Cincinnati Zoo that each day. They would introduce you to a different animal at the zoo. And the caretakers would. Teach about them, show videos of them, and so that was a neat thing. There were people reading books for little kids that they would read books in a real engaging way, and certainly to keep up with. Some of those would be fun if they were things that your kids enjoyed then. You know. The, kids especially younger kids don't have to know. This is part of school it can just be. This is kind of a fun time that we sit in. Let's have popcorn and listened to a story SORTA thing you know it school and you're sort of counting it as school time. But they don't know or care. There was a Webcam on a giraffe that was going to have a baby giraffe and every day we would check and see what was happening with the Mama Giraffe. Maybe. Those are things that you do with your kids outside of a regular school day. Maybe they're not so those can certainly count when you do those things with your kids. You are schooling whether you thought of that or not. For Art there's a website called deep-space sparkle. That is a very inspiring art teacher. She has some free things up there or you can do a membership to get access to more things. Same thing for art for kids hub. It's called. They have drawing lessons that are really engaging and doable for any age. It's a dad, and he draws with his kids and he shows them step by step and. Many ages of my kids enjoyed that for a long time there again. Some of it is free..

"You're listening to an encore presentation of the wired home school. This interview with Kirk Martin was originally recorded in October twenty seventeen. This one's a little bit longer than the ones that have been recorded in the past. But I think you'll like this content even though it's a little bit longer form. Here we go back to twenty seventeen with perk. Martin, my wife, Lisa and I we recently saw you speak up here in. New York and we were so excited to see you a second time and I just want to start out by saying just so the listeners know that we really. Value Your your advice that you've given us, and and we can tell you that even though we were not perfect in it. When we do implement your techniques, they have they have worked for us. And we're looking to implement more so that these can be a little bit calmer in the Wilkerson household, right? And we. All of us can use that, so that's good. Thank you for that. Yeah, absolutely, so a lot of people may not know A. Shared kind of the the the you formal side of things here, but but made people want to know a little bit about okay well. So what makes Kirk an expert in this? So could you just briefly share with them? What makes you an expert not? I'm not sure if I can answer that directly, but you know what I would share as kind of where where this originated where it comes from it lot of came from the fact that my our son Casey was just a very strong, willed child, and I just didn't like him a lot when he was little, he just didn't do what I told him to do. And it was frustrating it and it and it hurt our relationship a lot and what I found over time was that. My initial instinct was always to change him right to make Kim be a different kid, and if you just do what I told them to do all the time, our home would be calm and what ended up out was. I was the one who had to change and I've found that. When I began to change my body posture might tone of voice. How I interacted with him. It began to change all of our interactions. It actually changed his behavior, and so I found that the more than I changed myself. The more people around me changed, and so that led us really to working with kids who are a little bit more strong. Strong willed kids having them actually in our homes. Over the course of a decade we had about fifteen hundred kids actually come through our home, so we could teach them how to control their own emotions and our own impulses, and then we began working with the parents to teach all of us will. How do we calm ourselves down when our kids get really frustrated, don't do what we say and so You know it for me. It's been a transformation as a person and and we've been fortunate enough to be talked to a lot of parents and work with a lot of kids, so if that answered your question or not, but my expertise doesn't come from reading books or getting a degree. It came from working directly with the kids, and just honestly living this out my own life, and saying hey, when I control myself. It actually works, and it changes relationships, and so hopefully that'll come out as we go through the strategies tonight. Well that definitely sounds like it makes you an expert Kirk. So or I'm glad to have you and it sounds to me than like what you're saying is the first thing that needs to change..

Vicky and the treasure with nine so join Third Joint. Third Pretty much younger. Grind in attaches with nine reynolds was next with twelve. That which means we have a tie because Amit also got twelve so I am delighted that about five minutes before we started recording. I thought if a tie we'll need a question. I'm I'm Matt Reynolds.

Today he sat at a desk like a proper adult Now then But Boo what questions that we go. someone says they drew with Matt. Burgess which is you know that's an achievement Someone got thirteen. Which based on the schools that people sent in makes them the tree winner I've lost where they made the comment though so I can't give them a shout out. He got pack Go Thirteen points. He's probably proud of that as you should be Other people have just sent in random numbers numbers that don't appear to schools One hundred seven on imagine you've got that Yvonne scored a seven. Someone else scored a nine. What did we think was the quiz to heart? Yes it hard. Yeah to the pirates the guy who gave Matt Burgess the wrong answer through means of cheating and justifiably costume. His point said I search for some pilot information. Actually the skin is black. I knew there was some dot color beneath. I was wrong saying Brown so so this could join third and then pretty much everyone but one reynolds who would've treaty one So there we go. We weren't gonNA read out a couple of emails but we've kept your for an hour already. Thank you so much for all of your questions taking the quiz for keeping US entertained.

Communist or big tech workers rights human rights who said it communist or big tech workers rights are are Human Rights Matt Reynolds. If you got a favorite communist ooh does off the top of my head I would. I mean difficult. Isn't it because you've got to pay one of the ones that didn't do?

Okay have we all. What Matt Burgess have?

I didn't know his name so I called him tiger. Joe How can you? If you haven't seen the show doesn't stop me. Jones doesn't good. That's a strong attitude okay. question five the final question. Unless there's a tie and then I go tiebreaker. Murder Hornets better known as Asian giant. Hornets recently found buzzing around the states. But why are they such bad news? The honeybees why are murder Hornets? Bad News The honeybees a bonus point for precision. Why specifically bad. But you'll get a point if you get the gym Lonzo Right. I'm going to include a bonus plan. I not increase for people listening along. Do you remember when when they were talking about the reason why it was called a murder? Hornet where they said. Like one by or one sting won't kill you. But several will and many how many stings from a matterhorn. It does it take South fifteen supposedly. That will probably stop. Many's it but it can stingy several times. There's no limit. It's not like bees limit. Fourteen Times you've probably a bit more cautious than you would otherwise might have wiped it all right.

"You look. Please give yourself okay. I'm going to go for on. Msn Messenger if you received a message on my God. That's right. It is that constantly get spent much time on Messenger teenager. I put I put just like a generic error message. Yeah I just always sounds like Erin message harsh to be like a good thing like receiving a message above it more like you know you can to his crash to you need to quit the program. It's a little bit for boating. I guess the you got that one right. Yeah I learned to type fast on. Msn Messenger Trivia like is still lost somewhere in the Internet ether So let's do schools and we'll catch up with how well she did on that round so matt. How many points did you get in that room? I'm just just appoint beforehand in the comments. Question Announces People saying that Natasha's printing walls correct giving people what they want which means they want. Sanitize you give yourself another point. We'll start with you. Then how many points did you get in that round? Says this is my key. I said downhill map. I got to take goods and it got to as well Matt Reynolds I got to but can I request the people. Maybe have some extra points. If that's how we're running this quiz James if you get close enough that the people will speak. Okay all right Vicky says here right but I think it's very very sad She's not mess. I can only assume her whole Internet connections going because she hasn't popped up in slack. Either on we go with round three which is science but actually just animals back and Vicki's back she. I'm back your back. We were worried about you technically issues. I didn't know what happened. I'm going to see Michael all right. Then let's do a very very quick rundown of the round just just for your benefit and then we will to the last two okay so it was the Intel Jingle yet call that excellent and a new message on. Msn didn't get I won that round. One Yeah right abysmal. One Woods round three. Which is animals? Animal noises just animals. Okay question number one in round three. What Keller is polar bear for? Who's going to write down white on? The Burgess attempted definitely not I. I actually know the answer to this war. You're back confident. Yes because he's compilation of the animals that he does he. Does this thing on twitter where he does this cute animal. This is a little bit kids. Learn all the animal noises. I don't know maybe that's quite good can confirm all right question number two. Why do young dolphins and whales have to constantly move questions? Know what the answer is far from? Attach this question is actually being on the podcast before Burgess. I think you were on the podcast. When we did the old quiz we city sort of a weekly quiz that was wildly popular and we decided to count it for no apparent reason because we all love doing it so much. You remember those Halcyon days. I do. I think it was episode. Two hundred and fifty Probably was about that far. Back Yeah do young. Dolphins Specifically Young Dolphins and young Wales have to constantly move. Give it your best gas if you don't know it. Although my I assume you know this one as well not sickly question number three the human body has two hundred six bones. As Burgess recently informed his horses typically have two hundred and five bones but how many bones does a human? Baby Have Burgess especially for you while you ponder this. I've looked up some great horse facts. These are courtesy of an article titled twenty-five Fascinating Facts About Horses brackets that you will struggle to believe a true from horse and Hound Dot Code at you. Uk It's my Go-to destination for all these caucus by the way horses have bigger eyes than any other mammal that lives on land. Horses can sleep standing up to a special locking system in there legs. This one's good pulses produced approximately ten gallons of saliva day. A lot is a pretty big sounds like a lot does sound like quite a bit. Doesn't it I haven't fact check any of those facts. I Trust The people horse and hound cut it. Uk without needing to question four. What body part butterflies us to taste food? Any ideas anyone confident. I have an inkling on math. I mean if you're watching a live there. There's a very big inkling. Because we've accident highlighted direct on. We haven't that is not the correct. You see it's very well done moving slides in the background. So I spent time researching how different animals taste this question. And I found that the weirdest more is the yellow bullhead catfish. Its whole body is a giant tongue with one hundred and seventy five thousand taste. Buds that stretch from head to tail. But I don't WanNa know about bullhead catfish. I want to know about butterflies. What body part did they use to taste? Their food could be any of the four. Could be any of them. Did you say so now? I've not though it's one of the three of you. Okay Okay Question Five. Why can't squids eat too much too fast? If you think about how a squid looks should be able to get this one right. I mean I wonder if he can help everyone out by describing a squid two US It sort of got triangular heads and then like six tentacles coming off the back of it. like it looks. It looks a bit like a jellyfish like thick tentacles. And more of appointing talk bit. But yeah another somewhere. I'm not sure whether beat guys so the the key to think about this one is that beak sounds like a game show is the B- Kamat while we all kind of playing a game show okay So hopefully some people got some of those right. Let's find out by going back to question one in round three which was science but actually just animals. What color is polar? Bear for? Matt Burgess. Okay so at originally written down one thing and then somebody else in. The comments role has given an answer. And I decided to go without which I'm so now doubting so I'm GonNa go with Brown but originally I wrote transparent definitely check. It is transparent. Did anyone else get that? Just didn't get it gave you got it useless knowledge so only looks. It looks white because of the way the light bounces around inside. Hollow heads and potable at polar. Bears also have black skin question to why do young dolphins and whales constantly move Matt Reynolds so I wrote if they start moving they die? Dot is correct and then play in brackets blowholes get clogged up Did anyone else they die. Yeah I don't Yeah Yeah. I didn't talk. We can have a point. It's been hard quiz. Realize that's all that's all. Have a point this stage Yes so they're not born with enough body fat to float easily so if they stop moving they sink question. Three the human body has two hundred. And six as burgess reasonably informed. His horses have two hundred and five eve. How many bones a human baby amit so? I two hundred twelve my reasoning being but babies have been in Scotland fused together at the time so then I tried to estimate based on how many burdens would be skull before us together and I came up with six added that zero to two hundred twelve. Get to show you working Matt Reynolds. I say two hundred seventy six. 'cause I think they have a few more bones fused together and I guess seventy more bones. Okay Vicki Turk closest onto win by. I'm between the two same reasoning. I put two hundred and thirty just I think many more two hundred fifteen fifteen Who Natasha I see one hundred and twenty but not because I remembered about things fusing together is because I thought you might be tricking us and also remember the babies have extra teeth and their skulls which is super creepy and I thought those might count so two hundred twenty. You have good reasoning the right reasoning. You would just go quite far off the closest Matt Reynolds with two hundred and seventy-six. The correct answer is three hundred. Ish The reason I say each is. We'll guess correctly the ball with more bones. And they need in those bones sees together as they growed but the bones made entirely of cartilage. So it's kind of difficult to tell what to buy. And what isn't basically babies a wonderfully. We weird three hundred ish question four. What Body Part. The butterflies us to taste their food. Was it that is that feat that wings or their antennae. Matt Burgess Eat Correct. The did everyone else feet. Yeah yes yeah yes. Is that the first question that everyone's got right. I should have done more multiple choice. I apologize and I also should have read out the choices the first time the people who are listening after so if you back right without the multiple choice and you listening afterwards give yourself an extra mark question five. Yes question five. Why can't squids eat too fast too much too fast? Anyone think they got this one right. I I'm going to hazard a guess because I know squids hearts are light in their head and so I think the fast it crushes the heart and other vital organs. I'm going to give that a point. It's not that hard. It's their brain brain and Homs. Are you sure? Yes so the beak which I'm mentioned is pretty crucial because it helps them take bites and then breakdown stuff really really quickly. They've got quite strong acids in digestive system but there are sofas passes straight through that brain and if it expands it pushes on the brain and kills them so they have to tiny tiny little squid bites that would suck so much. Imagine having to stop eating being off just gonNA crush my brain again. Just boring boring boring to be a squid or not right. So let's do the scores after the latest round. Start with you Natasha. How many did you get back to Matt Reynolds Fool Vicky Turk I got to? Yes my Burgess. Due TO TO CONSISTENT. Amit go three three okay. I'm going to add those up in a minute because I'm very bad at Matts and we will move on to round four which is random knowledge if it wasn't random already. This is question number one. Which is wider Australia or the Moon also an Australia related horse fact for you? Courtesy of Horse and Hound. Okay that when no horses in Australia until Seventeen Ninety eight. How many on the you got none yet. They get to the moon but if you were to take horses to the moon would you be able to fit more of them into wind on the moon? Then you couldn't Australia. That's the question. Which is Wider Australia? Or the Moon.

That team should be kept really be effective. That's pretty much exactly what I had written down. You still only get one point. Did they get it right? Yeah but can I talk to?

I have minimal into researching factor or something. I learned this week and did it so two minutes ago. So I learned this week that the world's largest Rubik's cube is two meters tall on every single site so larger than most humans and it took around three hundred and thirty hours to build. I mean that's that's very good. I think that's a pretty good fat did did you go to your go-to Guinness World Records. I'd like not to comment on this. What did you learn this week? I learned that were tire. Originally come from the word attire as in clothing for your wheels. It's sinked which is what we're looking for when we have to get through all of these people Matt Reynolds. What did you learn this week? So I learned not cast me that I may have brought this fact previous podcast but short memory so I learned that if you add up all the bacteria on earth it would add up to seventy GIGA tons of carbon. It's about seventy billion metric tons. You have to have all the humans we would add up to zero point six Gigi tons so we count for almost nothing. Even mollusks outweigh. Humans is about zero point. Two Gigi tons of molecule. That's quite deep. I Know Yeah. We are inconsequential in the grand scheme of things next to bacteria. I mean wait till you go onto plants as a lot of plans the Tash. Can you give us something? Similarly deep Well did you know that? Seagulls dance when they're Hungary and this is good because for the first time you can possibly see. I'm doing that. Look slutty feet. They often down quite Hungary because they tried on the grass and they imitate the webs of the feet help imitate the sound and the feel of rain and that fools worms into kind of poking their heads out and being very sorry for anyone. That's listening and there's an able to see the TASHA's seagull dance. It was truly mas- Merrick. Vicky took what did you learn this week and I like. I'm at a language fact this week but more modern so French authorities have said that cove nineteen is a feminine Noun and so French as a language obviously has feminine and Masculine Nouns Many french-speakers. We're defaulting to the masculine luke. Cove it but the academy says which makes up the french-language rules says it should actually be lack of it because covet is an acronym. It's the English for Corona Virus Disease and the French word for disease. La Malady is feminine. So therefore cave-in should be feminine too good to have these things cleared up. Shut up to a few more people who are watching along. Live with Alastair Manchester Sandra in Spain Daniel in Berlin Ashley in London. Geagea also in London Valerie from North Carolina Berry.

Keep Track of your school and we'll ask you for your final score when we get to the end of this this entertaining quiz The podcast team will be playing along with you so I do and do remember to send questions. In particularly from Burgess using the q a function at the bottom of zoom. If you'd like my burgess to answer anything anything until okay so without further ado that's Quiz Round. One is all about big tech and question. One is wise. Is facebook blue? Why is facebook the color blue? This is facebook founded by half human half android Mash Up Mark Zuckerberg in two thousand four. It's now used by two point. Five billion people around the world each and every month but why is facebook Lou? Time to get an answer down because we're GONNA move on immediately to question to which is this. Which Tech Entrepreneur said you do get really tired of hot dogs and oranges after a while in Florida? People that are working in the fast growth competitive world of startups have slightly dodgy diets but it might ordinarily be pizzas takeaways. Who Ate too many hotdogs and oranges? I mean it's not an awful diet you got some vitamins in the you've got some protein which tech entrepreneur uses survive on a diet of hot dogs and oranges alone. Some some borrowed browse the easy. But yeah this is. I think we should clarify. James hasn't warned us about any of the questions are going to be or even what the themes of the rounds are so. We're doing this totally blind and possibly be put up for very public humiliation. I think some of the questions of more Gasol. These two are definitely know who this person is. Great Okay Definitely No. He's being on. The he says clue has been on the cover of wired quite recently Yeah okay question. Three slogan was this. Where do you want to go today? Very very famous slogan probably recognize it. Econ quite remember where it was from. I'm looking you. Matt Burgess here. Here's like very very famous and I'm not probably recognizable while he pulled into this for a couple of moments Matt Reynolds. Where would you like to go today? I would like to go to my kitchen. Which is good. 'cause it's only two steps over there and you know all. I might treat myself to that later on. Wild GonNA break out of the lockdown spirit. You'RE GONNA remain move in the the walls if you're flat. Well I certainly would not admit to on public zoom cool. So all I'm prepared to say is as far as I'm going and adventure to the kitchen. Question Four what is the two pizza rule? I know this one. Yeah I told you. Some of them were easier. I thought this was quite hard but very going while you point out. I'm going to take a sip of beverage. Say Don't don't give us the answers in the QNA feature on zoom. It'd be a bad idea. Actually do get her private message on zoom just for me please email Matt quiet decoding. Uk with all of your chances. Matt Reynolds can win. Okay Yeah So. What was the two pizza rule? That's question for next question. Which Company says its mission is to elevate the world's consciousness a lofty goal but may be not from the sort of company edicts back. It's Natasha while we ponder this. If you were to come up with a slogan for your personal brand. What would it be get shit done? We go that will get as a fifteen plus rating on apple podcasts. Long the question. I don't either honestly screen Which company said its mission is to elevate the world's consciousness James. I just don't know I thought I was ready for this. It's a company that we've written about several times the cover of Wyatt. Yes definitely yeah. One thing they know this one nar. I've guess but I mean yeah. I think I've been guessing pretty much every question. Say Foucault Not Confident. I've ran down three different answers and scribbled them out and I'm trying to think of which to well. You got a bit more time to think about it because we're going to go fruit the answers now for round one okay. So the first question in the Big Tech Round was. Why is facebook blue now before we shut the answer? We got it right. Who Like to? Who would like to has it. A guess I guess it to with Harvard's colors or something like that or is that was a Quebec Mancini. Okay sure anyone. Can anyone do better? That's not right excellent. I went so a very utilitarian and thought you know maybe it was just based on research which showed that people collect more on blue stuff. Isn't the cheapest these these really thoughtful answers but they all incorrect so the actual onto is it's because Mark Zuckerberg is Red Green colorblind. Can I say I wrote to match Mexico? Birds t-shirt ADS which Mexico Channel Credit report doesn't feel pretty points so mark Zuckerberg told the New Yorker back in two thousand ten. That blue is the richest color for me. I can see all of blue. That's why it's blue apparently houses very blues. Well okay question. To which Tech Entrepreneur said you get really tired of hot dogs and oranges after Awhile quickfire? Who's going to answer? I said Jeff Bezos because he did a transformation and then he got hench when he gave up hotdogs and oranges hedge. Basil's Vicky Turk. What have you got Evan? Spiegel foundress snap because I remember there. Was this big thing. Once where he had really like professional important business powerpoint..

"You're listening to an encore presentation of the wired home school. This is an interview. I conducted with Todd Wilson from family man ministries at the Northeast Great homeschool convention in two thousand twelve. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane. Here's the interview. I am going to be talking to todd. Wilson the family man from family man ministries. Now Todd is the author of help Mary to Homeschool mom the official book of homeschooling cartoons and Taming Techno. Bc's a data writer conference speaker. Obviously in a former pastor and I have been following his ministry for a number of years and I absolutely love the way he communicates two dads if you ever get a chance to hear him in person or even on a recording. I think you're going to enjoy it. He took some time with me afterwards and we talked a little bit about technology and how we can deal with that in this brief interview. So here we go with that interview with Todd. Wilson Todd Wilson with me from family man ministries and we just finished He just finished talking to US parents about taming the tech nobis and todd first of all. Thanks for coming out to the north Northeast Great homeschool convention. It's really great senior person. Instead of the podcast or online right always gonNA be around a lot of people who are just like us and the first question. I wanted to ask was with with us being constantly connected all the time a lot of people anyway especially myself. Who's WHO's into using technology in education. How how has that? How have you seen that has changed the way people parent their children around one? We're constantly distracted by people outside of our family. You know. I think that's a great question. I think Maybe it's a couple of cited one that our kids are very distracted. They're very distracted. So they they don't interact. I think in the same way like I was sharing some stories up there that my son he kind of fills in all his empty time. So when we're driving down the road he can take somebody else when we're waiting in line. He can tech somebody else you know and it used to be in those empty times. We used to just talk to each other. And now we don't and I'm seeing even with my wife and I and I miss some of that just that interaction fill in the blank time and I think for DADS especially that we can be very guilty of doing the very same thing. I sharing you know when my kids were at the swimming pool. You know I had my phone with me so it was easy to check some things answer some emails when I should have been undistracted and watching my kids do backflips and you know swimming in the water and our kids are little kids are GonNa grow up and their vision of dad is going to be the guy who has his head down in his lap. Watch looking at something in his lap. I guess you know or this thing. That's always in their hand and you know we grew up. We didn't have that are that it was just. Their mom was just there weren't there but they didn't have that distraction right then they couldn't take the phone with them Disneyworld or they couldn't go out on the boat and talk to somebody but now we can. I don't know I know it's hard to go back but I think maybe he's gotTa make some of us be very intentional there. We're GONNA have to say you know this things. Stay in pocket while we're here at the pool or whatever so. I think it's a big deal it. It's almost as if technology is this wild animal and at the Circus. You can make it do tricks. really impressed with that. But then but then one day bites you back. You know Exactly what are the things that I've often thought about? This is how it's changing the way we think as parents and our kids as well because we don't have to think through in answer anymore we can look up an answer on Google or or whatever. Do you have any thoughts on that about? Do you find that struggle yourself to that. You know you not actually thinking through a solution to a problem but you just let me just Google it and find the answer. There's a there's a lot of truth to that and you know in fact I think we're sometimes even frustrate we can't find it. We used to be okay with no answers and like you said we kinda struggled through it you know. I remember even just going to the library wanting to find something out and you get to the library and they go. I don't know we don't have looked for that and you say walk away and now you know we we. We feel like we're entitled to answers to everything and I had thought about that but I think that's a great thought. Maybe I'll think about it some more because I think we do we. We don't want to wrestle through. WanNa WANNA silver bullet. Google answer for everything Obviously you you travel a lot with your family in the RV. And I. I don't know if you continue homeschooling after you've finished or not do do you. Once we hit. Kinda one around the RV. We do a different kind of school. I got so much. The books More experiencing we see a lot of cool things like we were at Plymouth. Rock just a couple of days ago and and my kids work our booth and they'd do the money and they interact with people and so it's kind of a. It's a different animals. Do you use any technology during during that point to any home schooling educational APPs on the on ipads or laptops or anything like that. We do we really. Have you utilized this things? Maybe with some of the little kids You know whether it's the reading APPs or their math APPs and we're really excited about that and even the possibility I could see some of the other curriculums offering more IPAD APPS and I think it's a great tool I'm not against it We have a friend who whose daughter is has maybe mild autism and the ipad. App has been incredible. You know they. They have more than they have books but very interactive and. I think it's awesome. I think it's cool to so I. I'm all for them.

"Hello and welcome to the wired book club where we'll be discussing super pumped the battle for Buba by Mike Isaac. I'm your host Bikita and joining me today. We've got Burgess and Matt Reynolds so super pumped tells the story Laurie of Uber from its inception up to founder Travis Kalanick's getting ousted from his position as CEO. Give me a top line thoughts. What did you make of it back so I enjoyed it? I thought that it was incredibly well. Researched and Mike has obviously got some sort of amazing sources on this. So what I particularly liked about the book I guess is Sore so from a journalistic perspective in a way is how many people he's obviously spoken to and paint these amazing scenes and pictures of what was happening Uber's I really liked Some of the really specific details whereas talking about Travis walking into southern companies and like the clothes that he was wearing down to that level of specificity is just helping you to really sort of imagine this and mentally picture. What's going on with the company? Yeah I four. This sounds like quite obvious point but I guess we've oh had this vague sense. That Uber is kind of a bad company. We will remember the Hashtag. Delete Uber thing. That happened but I thought what was. Amazing is when he really kind of gets into the meat of the story story. This really terrible gier 2017 which ends in in clinic being ousted you think. Wow that's pretty bad to this memo and everyone trade is as kind of this horrible culture sexual harassment. That must be as bad things can get nope things get worse and then things get worse and then it just really lays up and it really paints interesting portrait. I think somewhere the author says something that this is probably the worst twelve months that any company his Heart in American history and it really really kind of lays out and you just think brow things they just kept getting worse which makes for great reading and just while we're ANA as well. We had some feedback from our book. Club superfan Giovanni Well Giovanni was talking about what she of the book as well and she said the The book pretty much has like all the things that you want from. A good read is shady main characters. Power struggle was a like a underlying toxic culture that enrages rages us as readers and passengers and writers and rights and all about their safety genus. What's there not to dislike and get mad about about the story? Conquest of the world indeed. Yeah I felt very much the same you know. We've been following the story for a long time. There's been plenty of stories stories in the news so I was a little bit. I did think before I go into it. I oh I kind of know the story of Uber but actually just the pulling all of those separate stories together and that was really effective. And telling as that unraveling story with those controversy that at the end just mounting up leading not this big crucial moment very dramatic scenes when Travis is taken taken out of the company. And we've we've using a terrible pun. There is just so of Alexa and acceleration to the book. Where is building up to this final big moment which we all know about? But you just didn't know as you say Vicky some of the specifics that were so of laid out for out this until you go into the real deep reading of it. Yeah so what did you learn about. Uber's origin story was there. Anything knew that that you hadn't appreciated before. Yes so I didn't know about one of Uber's early CEOS. Someone Could Ryan Graves essentially back the job because he responded to a tweet we from traffics and I just looked up the tweet. It was something like looking for business. Development management exact who can be super good and cool and this was in two Jonathan January two thousand and ten. And you have no idea that that tweet was about to about the company that will become Yuba become a eighty billion dollar companies. He he responded to the tweet. Here's a tip. Email me wink face. which is amazing way to to get a job interview and he got the job it I I think he's twenty six? The time only had some very very little experience and actually ended up leaving the job before the end of the year in December twenty ten. And what's fascinating because he actually stuck around for so long longer than Travis actually and by the end of it he ended up netting. I think around one and a half billion dollars pay per valuations relation. If you like so not. Bad for speculative reply to a tweet ten years ago. I have one of the things that struck me as well. It was just like how rapid I paid. The growth of Uber was so of its early years and not maybe not just days earlier point but free this original formative years where it's going from city to city and so oh of expanding their on absolutely so having no infrastructure one day to pretty much going in hiring a couple of general managers who are quite young. Quite Aso of in that Uber Bro. Molding of sort of like being people that really just want to move fast and break things use a silicon valley. Tom And then really just actually actually. It would launch overnight and then they would just deal with the consequences afterwards and that sort of like something new about being so of light from the gay didn't really understands how quickly it happened in the US city after city just popping up and being Uber Fide Mongo. Yeah with the value of hindsight. It's kind easy to see as this company's growing how things could so quickly get out of control and go wrong you know it's growing massive pace and there's a lot of the people who maybe don't have the right business experience to oversee that also I think you do get an appreciation for it's like to be leading startup. That has has that pressure on it to grow that has investors buying at the door wanting to go in the right direction. You've got competitors fighting off. Obviously the battle between Lebron left gets pretty nasty places and I think you you know without wanting to excuse obviously some of the horrific behavior and on in in the company and the is detailed in the book you you do sort of see how people can maybe get wrapped up in that and Travis as a very competitive fist lead. heat-driven person makes as wrong choices. Because he's got his eyes on the prize as it were I mean travis oversee the key character hair. What did you make of his portrayal by Mike in the book? I thought that it was like there were times that Mike was quite maybe not fat bad to him but was quite so was leaning to say. Travelers was like this one scenario but also like a small thing that was better about his personality. Or something. Like that you're saying the actually he's obviously got this like personalities. Founder of a company is very of driven for certain motives and it just wants to go out and win and the best company. Well make the most money the company could do it however actually whatever way possible possible whether that's regarding laws and disregarding rules and everything in that so I think so of the portrayal of travis is like it builds up a good picture of all of this like Silicon Valley Tech Persona the is made. It wasn't necessarily that surprising to me but certain parts of it were like. Oh actually they stoop today's level and they did go down this route and that was driven through this like found lead mentality European. That's fair because I think it would be quite easy to Vilnai's a Travis in this and there's a lot of a nice in for many many wrong things but actually the account is is quite fair and I guess that probably a bit more of an interesting book. Because you've got someone that's egotistical and and you know hyper masculine competitive kind of thing and you kind of get a sense of these drivers of him. And also you know he idolizes. Jeff bezos is in this world where it Kinda wants to be him and you want to be just as successful as none of that excuses. All these kind of horrible human cost d-i-n-o-v-i-t-e kind of laws broken and regulations and stuff but it does really painting this portrait for on the Amazon Point. I know down some of some of these values. He came up with so Amazon Amazon. These these famous fourteen values it would be customer centric and stuff like that which is kind of guiding the company success and clinic wanting to come up with his own versions and some of the ones that he slightly adapted from the Amazon versions quite often lifted were always be hustling with compulsory on the G.. Champions mindset forward slash winning very interesting to have a value that afford slashing it and of course the value that gave its name to the book Super Pop pumped and I think that really kind of is quite evocative this whole kind of culture that you just do what you need to do to get it done. That means working seventy ninety hour week. It doesn't matter whether that means breaking these regulations or size competition stuff and the cure the pure narrative success at all costs. I think it also shows the aspect of Calix finality as someone who's desperately trying to be cool and just call on quite make it. He just it doesn't have that sensibility about him. And I think that comes across a few times when he's trying to enjoy his success but you get the sense that he never really can't he's never gonNA in a live up to the ideal of himself that he's got his head and the scene that sticks with me is at the end after the catastrophe has free. Pr Disaster PR disaster and The video that comes out of Travis. Berating an uber driver sort of the final nail in the coffin. Really and Mike Pitches is a scene of Travis essentially flinging himself on the floor wining like Oh. I'm a terrible person you know. He Chews out his female Alpine staff. You then leave and has to go grovelling to get them back and you just have this image of this kind of man child. Throwing a Tantrum just that immaturity and inability ability to deal with the level of success that he's built and I think it's that kind of conflicts between obviously he's managed to make this start up. Breath grow fantastically but he just isn't really equipped to to deal with the disasters that are unraveling from his maybe shortsightedness yeah definitely I think the actually on the values that Matt mentioned there at this is like a good example of how the company operates and solve how Travis I was thinking of like in the early stages when he unveiled these fourteen values ten values whatever it was for Uber. It was at this big company party to celebrate getting to to ten billion in revenues so a huge huge amounts of money and a lot success to that point but he unveiled these values which is a few years down the line for one thing which is a little bit like a to me a bit of a warning sign about a company. They only use laying out values wherever that good or bad a few years in but it was always done it this week..

"Is sticking to its roots or becoming something that wants to rival and your traditional tv players netflix streaming services yeah yeah and i love the book was looking into the world has called youtube is too large part. It's about looking to the world of these creators and expanding youtube through there is we totally obey about the the major channels but it also a whole bunch of different craters. I'm interested in what i review surprised different craters in the way they went went about their their jobs. What struck me was like well. You don't need a bunch of followers to make a decent living. Maybe you can do well well a youtube having a really small audience a very dedicated followers. It showed that there was more than one way to be a youtubers. Essentially the micro influence say yeah. I think that's also a trend on social media platforms like instagram if you don't have you know millions and millions of followers but you've got a few thousand maybe but they're very devoted to your channel and maybe got quite a specific niche than that can be a lot more valuable to brands and that is an important part of the youtube puzzle is making money from it. The youtube dream is you know. Logan polls the jay-paul living in a mansion doing crazy stunts and bringing a millions from march or whatever obviously only a few people ever reached that level valentic now if that would be possible to fishermen starting out today and what did you what did you learn about life as a youtube creates. It's a is it as crazy as they make out on. A c. sounds quite stressful and the book kind of talks about this as a passage where chris writing in the early days you may be one one video and it was okay for a video to be three to four minutes long because that was kind of what the algorithm algorithm bit want. It's going to push people towards as the platform was developed developed in. There's been more competition more content. That's kind of spread to really kind of keep up your presence on the platform. We put out three to four videos a week and you might when those videos idiots between to be between ten twelve minutes and that means right inscription means organizing products that means getting locations it means editing those videos and suddenly i fought oh. This isn't just using in front of cameron saying yeah so today i did. They sing. Am i covered. The creator talks about women. I think you concerning.

"People working behind the scenes on producing and editing videos and creating shows that take into some of them take take as much time as as an actual production that we would see on tv still is still has beautiful. It is just a platform where things aren't done seriously. Improperly is a little bit amateurish still slow veneer to it and obviously that exists on youtube but actually like some of the biggest. I guess channels employees tens of people producing videos editing conducting interviews during research and the proper production. It's a it's a full. We'll blown media organization essentially but just saw decentralized yeah. It's amazing how it has developed over a relatively short time ready and the book starts starts with the first issue video which is one of the youtube creators doing a very kind of homemade video of him zoo not really saying anything kind of is being very awkward in front of the camera just being sort of like oh his me with the elephants and then you get to modern day where quite normal what we'd consider normal komo creators are hiring people to film them. They're investing in proper lighting and camera. This is no longer sort of that who made approached that you'd maybe be originally associated with youtube and i think that's kind of a pit mayes in this battle for the top that the book gets into between pupae who is obviously one of the top p._g. A._g. burs quite controversial figure now that made his name primarily by doing gaming videos watch him complete a level in a game or whatever and and now t series which is an indian channel which as you point out is not just one person one creates a making their own thing. It's a proper produced channel putting out low to staff by lots of different people and i think that really encapsulates how youtube has matured it and changed and that has driven by youtube as well so increasingly like within chris is <hes> book and also the reporting done so that was why for wired and other publications around so of of how usually is changing it seems that google its own as once it's to be something where people go for quality content has its idea of youtube originals. I probably they produced shows things that are exclusive to youtube as a destination for watching tv and being entertained and there seems to be this clash between the riginos also created the the idea of these people that produce shows on their own stuff is even though it's not always the case now and the bigger networks the organized platforms whether youtube is sticking to its roots or becoming something that wants to rival and your traditional tv players netflix.

"Pupae and i know when really big stuff locum pool something happens on on the on the platform what for christie's book you know shows there is a celebrity for every single segment and it's all these different tiers of people to be interested in one of the the things that stood out to me on the creative level and the ones that chris highlighted because he goes through a really in depth look at different creatives from different space from beauty to to children's videos and toys and these channels some of them have got millions of you millions of subscribers hundreds of millions of views and you've never heard of somebody yet. They've got twenty million subscribers on youtube and it's a bit of a case of i think the book for me highlighted how how big the platform has really become and how ah lotte people particularly in. Maybe sort of intergenerational thing don't understand the impact that is having a around the world in the amount of people that are actually watching and viewing every day. I think that's definitely a good question that chris draws out in his reporting as well this idea of there's a big disconnect in knowledge about the platform and quite few scenes in their of conventions and things and often parents taking their children the children being eh really into these different itchy celebrities and the parents just kind of sitting back with a cup of coffee and having no idea what's going on and that also paths extends to the way u._t. Not biz covered i mean. Do you think it's taken seriously enough as a platform. Chris has a few scenes in the book where he kind of notes that he's pretty much. The only journalists there and no one else seems to know outside if that youtube bubble what's happening when really so many millions of people are involved in this. It's not a niece thing. I would say that increasingly is being taken seriously and it's interesting because i think saving be five years years ago. People weren't sure whether youtube was a social network where someone of no real standing practice in the usual round celebrity. We talked to other people. That could just be you like that right. The difference was they didn't make videos but they did and so it had an aspect of a social network right people would comment and people were talking and be very interactive active and really ever was nobody or at least to the outsiders that way and i think chris kind of paints this weld where that has really changed. You've got these multi channel network so these are kind of stars that are basically signed up to agencies will help them maintain their channels do this kind of admin and marketing things. That really just looks like you're kind of t._v. China. I think that at least how it's shifted in perception is that it kind of is a tv channel and it has got its own stars. It's just those styles house are quite different and i think that's the thing perhaps we're if we don't take you seriously. It's because practically lag behind him think some kind of homegrown install. Nobody's doing nothing and not influential whereas really that's not how it is. It's kind of a t._v. Platform where where anything can happen and it's much less structured so. I think that we're slowly becoming aware of that but i think it's about changing anything about eugene from saying it's just another social network to it's kind of like t._v. But but the celebrities are children and that perception i think they'll go a long way to go say that lie across without going too much into light the media weeds of how you've seen. I think it's still perceived by lot of outlets. Are something that only the kids do or something that isn't taken can seriously that isn't like a natural business with.

"Today on the wired homeschool having interview with Noah tester, he's the host of the history of Vikings, and lessons from a home schooler, and we talk about his experience, as a home schooler, and how he turned his podcast into his full-time job. That's coming up on the wired home school. Joining me on the podcast today is Noah Tetzschner from the history of Vikings, and lessons from a home schooler. No, welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for having me, John. It's really a delight to be here. I've been a fan of this podcast for quite some time. So to be able to speak with you is real treat thanks. I appreciate it. I heard about you from day, Jackson actually heard you interviewed on his podcast. And I think you ended up reaching out to me before I ended up reaching out to you for for this interview. So. The, the, the, the mutual connection, they're very thankful to today for, for making me aware of, of you out there. So you are eighteen you just graduated homeschool. Yes. And. We have all kinds of directions that we can go with this interview. But I wanna start with. What you told me was that you were. Basically, you spent three years of high school in private school. And in for your senior year you decided to come back to home schooling. What was it? You wanted to go into private school digit parents, put you in private school. What prompted that? Yeah. Yep, slightly. So I was home schooled from first grade up to eighth grade. And then for freshman year sophomore year and heart of junior year, I went to a classical Christian private school in Wisconsin where I live, and that was very much. My parents decision I would say, you know nothing against them. Of course I was a good experience. And I'm very grateful for it. I learned a lot, but myself I wasn't too resistant. Of course, I had always loved homeschooling and had nothing but positive experiences up until that point when I went to private school. For me. Really? You know, I didn't understand you know why I would go to private school. I suppose for my parents, perhaps, in a way, it was one of those things that homeschooling parents often encounter, you know, will I'm not smart enough to teach my children blank, you know, perhaps for my parents, it was science and, you know, more advanced math and that was in parts. You know, the reason a lot of our homeschooling, you know, fellow homeschooling families and friends that we'd grown up with head sent their kids to that particular private school, part, time anyways. So it was kind of a natural experience for me. I learned a lot there. But perhaps what makes me different from a lot of my, you know, sort of pro classical education, even homeschooling advocate, contemporaries is that I really the core of. Homeschooling that I believe, is most beneficial, and for me, personally, this is my personal experience. What I've gained with home schooling is the fact that it is not institutionalized learning. The fact that you have time freedom. You have location freedom. You have the freedom, perhaps most of all to follow your interests in design a style of learning that number one and stills desire of learning in students, but also allows you to follow your interests. Now, of course, there are some things that one has to learn. You know, while being educated math reading, and writing of just basic things that allow human beings to function in the twenty th century. But there's different ways that we can go about teaching those, and I think that we should design for home schooling students away of teaching them, that allows them themselves to become teachers and allows them to learn things in a way that interests them. Most of all, so for me private school. It did teach me some things it really gave me an insight, I suppose as to the other end of it. If you will, what home what the opposite of home schooling, you know, more of an institutionalized learning environment. It was a good experience there. I learned a great deal again. I'm still friends with many of the people there, including the headmaster's family, but for me, I'm a homeschooling at heart. I'm a home schooler at heart. Always have been always will be. And I just love the freedom. Him that I found in hopes going. Now, you mentioned the freedom and being able to design really basically design your own curriculum and, and have a home school student follow their interests. You became interested in Vikings did that happen before you went off to private school. Or while you were in private school went when did that interest occur because I would think that if you ask most young boys, they would think Vikings are cool because they think they wear helmets with horns on them. But, but for the most part, it wouldn't be something that they would decide to start a podcast around now. Yeah. Well, I had always loved history. That's just been my biggest passion life for as long as I can remember and I left. The private school in that would probably have been wanna say, October of junior year Tober of eleventh grade for me. I just graduated senior year graduated homeschooling as ice schooler just a week ago of but anyways, I left in October of twenty seventeen and then I started my podcast in March of twenty eighteen so just a few months after I left and, you know, once I left school, you know, I was starting to realize that, you know, the end is near I'm going to graduate. And you know, it's either I go off to college, or I find something else to do with my life, essentially sort of what every young person goes through, and I knew early on that college wasn't for me. Definitely, you know, people can gain so much from going to university. But just for me personally. It was not my Cup of tea STS. So I thought it was really cool, if I could sort of create an excuse for me, not to have to go to college, and I knew I had wanted to start a podcast about two years before I actually did I never got around to doing it. I had most of the equipment that my parents had bought for me for Christmas Bill two years ago when I first started talking about it, and I knew I wanted to start a history podcast, so I did, and I thought, well, you know what am I going to do about, I could do about anything, the Napoleonic wars World War Two, but Vikings are something that I had sort of been interested in and they were kind of mysterious to me, there was not really any Viking, podcasts around, and that was always sort of an air in history that I just didn't know about, like apart from, like, you know, the did the Vikings wear horned helmets, which they didn't, by the way, and, you know, sale in long ships and raid, you know, there's gotta be more to this sort of era in medieval history, and I started. My podcast, the history of Ike ings, and I, you know, learned the ropes of recording, and with a lot of trial and error got everything going and got a website up and started reaching out to guests for my podcast and erase Alie. I had just written some scripts in just sort of had this narrative history style podcast, but as time went on the, the show quickly within, it's like I two weeks became an interview, based podcast and just one thing led to the next and every episode of the history of making at least just about every episode is featured a conversation with a scholar that specializes in some way with the Viking age. So I've had professors from Oxford and Harvard, and Yale and just all over the World University of Iceland, you name, it just all over the world and they've been able to, you know, share things that they've dedicated their lives to researching different things of old Norse literature in Viking, poetry, you name it, and I've been able to. Discuss that on my podcast. So, so you basically decided to do history of Aikins, because you wanted to learn about Vikings. Yes. And what better way to do that than be able to directly talk to the experts on the topic? That's that's great. That's a really a great concept. And it'd be nice if a lot, I think a lot of parents who are. Podcast savvy, if they would direct their kids in a direction like that. And say look, you can actually talk to people who are scholars on the topic instead of just reading their book, you can actually talk to the person who wrote the book, that's a great concept. Well, thank you. I've, I've often said to my parents, you know, I just think it's so cool that I and by the way for everyone is listening when I started the history of kings. I knew nothing about the Viking age of that, Aaron history, I just wanted to learn more about it as you said, John, but, you know, I've often said, you know, and I say this, you know, with humility that, you know, all of my podcasts interviews, I'm kind of fortunate to get these private history lessons from, you know, scholars across the world. So I do agree at home schooling. You know, that's a concept, which could be what I did could be applied to any, you know, homeschooling family in any home. Schooling student. Absolutely. No your parents when they home schooled you early on. Did they I was like to kind of find out what kind of technology? Parents used if any I know that sometimes especially parents who, who are more involved with kind of the whole classical. Homeschooling. They, they tend to not use a lot of technology. But some of them do what, what besides a you know, basic, computer and things like that. What were there, any was there, any online curriculum that you were using or, or did your did you parents, make use of a particular videos or particular websites, as they were homeschooling you? Yep. -solutely. So we did for those of you who are familiar classical conversations for many years before I went to private school and classical conversations, it's been a few years since I did it. But I would assume they're even more. So now at the time that was very technology savvy, I would say, even more so than most traditional, you know, homeschooling, curriculum, which it seems to me, you just you're buying bundles of books and textbooks. Nothing wrong with all. It's all about your learning style and classical conversations when I did it. You know, of course you had your. Your books that you bought and there was a sign reading, you know, various, you know what people would call the great books, great pieces of literature, and so forth and classical conversations for those who aren't familiar is a classical Christian sort of homeschooling, worldwide community nowadays. But they had an app, you know, they have an app for certainly there like eighth grade and younger students that I was in at the time, and that has all of your memorization things classical conversations is very keen on memorization particularly for younger students. So the app, we used daily, and there were, of course, you know, just a plethora of videos and interactive sort of things you could do with that. So yet, CC classical conversations was very tech heavy, I would say, we use that for many years. Now getting back to your, your podcast, you had mentioned that there were not very many podcasts out there about Vikings did did you get any people who would listen to.

Welcome to the wired home school. I'm your host John Wilkerson bringing you tech, tools and tips for home schooling, the digital generation and a lot like last week this week isn't a very technical episode. It really doesn't cover any tech or any hardware or any internet safety issues. I wanted to address them things that necessarily don't always come up when we're talking about home-schooling, our children, we want to make sure we have the right curriculum. We wanna make sure we have the right textbooks and online resources the right tools. But there are just some things that cannot be learned from textbooks. And I'm going to talk about five of those today. Now, this is by no means an exhaustive list. It's just listed. I quickly put together you could probably double or even try. Triple this list, if you wanted to, but I just wanted to hit on these five things because I feel like that these might be the top ones, you might think differently. But for me, these are what I feel. I'm trying to instill in my kids outside of their education outside of transferring my face to them, these are the other things that I wanna make sure that they have. So the first thing is grit grit is determination, and that can sometimes differentiate someone from another person it can differentiate your child from others, especially in activities sporting activities or activities that require any kind of concentration over a long period of time. Sometimes the person with the most grit gets. The best results. There are a lot of people out there who are talented who maybe play piano, better than have more natural talent or who played a sport better than your child. But if your child has grit and determination and is determined to succeed, they can often overcome that lack of talent with just grit with knowing how to stick to it and stay with something until it gets done. I remember years ago. My kids were at a piano recital and the young lady who was finishing. She was a senior at the time. And and this was her final year and she just played beautifully. She was playing a very very complicated piece. It sounded wonderful, and everyone was complimenting her on it. And she said to. To I don't know if it was my daughter or another one of the girls that was there. She was she was very humbly accepting the accolades, but she said, I don't understand how you can memorize your pieces. I can never do that. And so one of the things that happens with kittens having my kids, especially is if they're learning a piece, they might not be able to sight read it and play beautifully the first or the second time that they see it. But over time having constantly played it. They've memorized the peace. And that was something that this person who had a lot of great natural talent looked at my kids in even other kids there and said, wow, I wish I could do that. I wish I could memorize a piece like that. And so grit and determination is very very important. A second thing that is important is cooperation learning to corral cooperate. We hear a lot about self made men and women. But really isn't anyone who did it all themselves? If you look beyond the facade of the person who says, I did it myself. I did it my way you'll see many times when that person needed to work with others in order to obtain success and any we talk about this. When we talked about CEO's any CEO will tell you that they have to find the right people to work with in order to succeed. Any sports star needs a team behind them in order to win games. You hear it so often about how talented LeBron James is. But oftentimes he don't have. A team that will back him up. If Tom Brady played for another team besides the patriots. He might do. Well, but he might not get the same results if he's unable to work with and cooperate with the players around him the quarterback can't win a game by himself, very important position. But you need more than just a quarterback out on their field in order to win a football game. So being able to cooperate and work with those teammates is very very important for anyone your child is there growing up you may notice that your child likes to work on their own. So it's important for you to put your child in situations where he or she needs to work with someone else to learn to cooperate because anyone who's used to doing things on their own and excelling on their own. On who suddenly needs to rely on others in order to get something completed. And excel that can be frustrating sometimes, but it's an important quality that we need to teach. Our kids is learning how to work with others learning how to cooperate. The third trait is curiosity. Now, some children are just born naturally curious that wanna know how things work they wanna know, what makes things tick, they wanna know how the world works. They want to learn more about it. These are people who are naturally drawn towards inventing things, and they can be big thinkers who sometimes challenged the status quo and go on to do remarkable things. But yet there are some children who they they learn only enough. To get by. And they're never really curious about something just below the surface a surface level of of knowledge. Just just. They have to this no interest in learning more. And yes, while I think there are some people who are just more curious than others. Teaching our children to look beyond what they see and look for answers that are not necessarily always on the surface. But just to dig a little bit deeper sometimes when your child digs a little bit deeper. They find something that they're passionate about and that they can run with. And this curiosity is sometimes has to be developed in our children. The kids who are naturally curious are going to just dig and dig and dig and keep looking at more and more things and sometimes they can get sucked sucked into a black hole and. They can't come out of it. But
