Paul Kengor on the Shallow Indoctrination of Marxism
"My contention, and he agreed, but you're right there in the trenches teaching, is that when you talk to these 20 somethings or even 30 somethings? Yes, they are indoctrinated. Yes, they're told this is the only way to social justice to have not even a quality. Now it's forced equity. However, unlike the Soviet Union or the Warsaw Pact, the indoctrination Paul is incredibly shallow, they can quote the nostrums, they can quote the boilerplate, but if you give them any meaningful challenge to try and justify what they're doing or the lack of equality that actually necessitates to enforce equity, everything crumbles. Is it truly a very shallow indoctrination? Where do you stand on this issue? Yeah, it really is. An infamous quote from Lenin Lennon said, give me four years with a child and to see that I had planted will never be uprooted. And that's a real quote from Lennon. And so four years, it's a time to get a college degree. But I would say that students that were studying, in fact, I know there were studying Marxism, a hundred years ago who joined the communist youth league. And then when on the Communist Party, USA, they were much more steeped in what they were reading, what they were learning. They actually knew marks. They actually knew Lennon. And today you're right, seve, it is really shallow. I've been, I've been going around since the early 2000s speaking for Yao, a young America's foundation. Also, ISI intercollegiate studies institute, giving a speech a talk called why communism is bad. And I've gotten so many emails. I mean you should see my box from students kind of desperate pleading from this or that university saying, dear professor, I saw, I saw your lecture on YouTube. I see that this is up, but yeah. Could you please come to our college because we've got an economics professor who literally has a bus of Karl Marx in the office. And I come in and I speak in these rooms, and first of all, there's never any professors in there. The professors don't even come.

"Changes so fast. Right. So like going back and looking at your career, you were at KPMG for two years, then you were at soft rooms for two years after that. When you look back during that time, what do you take away from that? Oh man, KPMG was a fantastic experience. I actually, the way I got to keep him G was, I was in, I was in the mica, MPS program, masters of professional studies in UX design. Check this out. So I moved to Germany after graduating. We didn't talk about that. Single study sports management because I believe in sports so much. I did. But it didn't work out. So I went there to train, I trained my coach a lot. I lived in monheim. And before I left, there was this whole thing. Before I left, I met the word UX design. That as I found the word U.S.'s eye on Google, through a conversation, and a planet of seed. So I came back, started looking for schools, Arizona. I'm like, maybe I have to move to the West Coast. I didn't know what really I wanted to do. I felt kind of down. Around those times, I was reading a lot of roomy poetry to kind of get myself back up. How I was, man. I was like, the press was like reading a lot of Sufi poetry and stuff. Uh huh. And throughout whole thing, I found this program that was starting a mica and I applied. I was like, I don't know what the ad was or whatever I applied. And I went to meet this lady called crystal chambly. And she's one of the great pushers in my life altogether, but I went to meet her to talk about that, I didn't want to do something theoretical. I see this ad, I see you guys are doing UX design. I want to do it. But I don't want to do anything to it. I don't want to write any papers. I don't have any time for that. And at the time, I was a substitute teacher in high school. I was actually I was, I wasn't being a sub anymore, I was teaching special and helping teachers teach kids with behavior stuff. And I was the first student to apply to that program in the first student to be admitted. Very weird story. I only learned this about a year ago. And there was ten of us and only 5 of us or 6 of us graduated. The program. So throughout program, towards the end, a letter came through an email came through and crystal forwarded to us about looking for people in UX design. I gave BMG. Oh, well, I know KPMG. I didn't know KPMG ten, but you look them up and you see their part of the big four. Hey, you're going to school. This may be a great thing. I sent back my stuff. I don't know if anybody did. I got an interview. I went there and met two gentlemen. Mike and Mark, they interview me and then I got an internship, was an internship into a job kind of day. So I got to KPMG through that way through basically this they were looking for people that had a relationship with micro somehow. And I got to start working there. First thing I noticed is that this whole UX design thing is not very straightforward. There is a lot of moving parts. There is a lot of people, a lot of ideas and limbo, just say, okay, what do we do here? Or what is that for? What is this? How do you come up with product ideas and how do you iterate and stuff like that? Because I was moving into product design and learned as much as I could, traveled a bunch to give me opportunity to just be on different projects with a bunch of fortune 100 companies. So I seen a lot, I wouldn't say I got any craft skills, but I got two things. I got the idea of what good design is and what good design is not. And also about what cultures I wanted to begin. In a cultures and the people that I wanted to work with, one of the greatest gifts I got from KPMG is one of my mentors, John winner wiki, who taught me actually how to design product and how to look at designing and how to want to break the rules of how to break the rules. Where there's no rules, what you do. And so forth, that was my biggest to go away from that company. I met a lot of people. There's some pretty cool things, but having just someone on my first ever project, just being like, I like that kid. I'm going to help him out was life-changing. The monger learning thing of being in the corporate and all of this stuff was also cool. I'm sure it influenced the way the way I look at business and stuff now, but that was the biggest thing I learned there. And from that experience, I went to the other extreme to work in government. I worked at CMS through soft rams during COVID. I got to sell Friends, we own a CMS contract and then COVID happened. I mean, it was just, it was madness, right? Wow, that things are really, you know, let's improve the systems and stuff like that. And being a software from another thing, working through a contractor and a federal space, which honestly wouldn't want to do again. Not because it was a bad experience, but I think the system in which they work with other people probably needs to be improved and a lot of ways. But our work with some pretty fantastic people on some impossible and possible problems because if you know anything about government UX, ruling government products is not a straightforward. It's not private industry. You don't just go get things done. Their processes. There are people in a way. They are steps to everything. I've been able to improve all of that and the platform that you actually supposed to build was a positive challenge. You really gave me some strength in kind of being in a senior league part of my career. So I took a bunch of things from those who experiences all functionally all over growth, cultures you wanted to work in people you wanted to work with and so forth. So it was really amazing. And now you're running two businesses, you're working full time and on top of that, you're also a professor at mica where you got your master's degree. You just alluded to that earlier. Talk to me about what you're teaching. So for the last few years I was teaching prototyping. And that was really a passion of mine because prototyping is kind of like movie making. And I used to make all this hack movies from training over the summer so when I was in college and mixtapes and stuff like that. So prototyping is for me is a lot like

"Is booked. So try to do a lot of stuff. I remember I had a job in athletics. I used to do security over an hour for her company called security tasks, I would drive all the way to D.C. to security at the Geico building, go back and other weekends, I'll do martial arts as a whatever. What do they call them? Something Marshals, like we're like cops on campus. And did that kind of work. But most of the stuff that UMBC gave me is just being resourceful. It wasn't the easiest good to navigate most schools are. It was pretty young university and the technology was okay. So if you wanted to get something done, you had to go to the source. Actually, my last couple of years, I was in sack student athlete, advisory committee. Okay, I got it right. And I was a sack my last year, you know, we try to do a lot of stuff for the athletes and all of that stuff that I just got me around to meeting people trying to get stuff done. Is this how people really get stuff done in real life? I was asking myself because it's like, this isn't possible. People, you know, they give you everyone you run around, even if they didn't want to. So on that person, this person has it. So my experience, there was really formative years. And studying industrial psych, I especially started studying industrial psych in high school because I was in a part of some AP program and you had to choose something. I knew I wanted to do psychology. My father was like, I'm not sure about psych man. I mean, you may become a secretary or something. In the house and I was like, man, I don't know if I wanted to become a counselor as a psychiatrist specifically, but if I was going to become, I was going to be a cool one. But I wanted to I also wanted to do something around business. And what I found through Google search was this thing called industrial psychology. It was fascinating that you can apply psychology and would have been a site, a counselor or something like this. So I started, I got into this AP program and you can study whatever you wanted. So I had an internship at retained ellipses. Some kind of government contractor and I was an HR and kind of learned what a she wasn't an industrial psychologist. I think my mentor wasn't. But this has come to the soft deal with you. So that took me to college where I wanted to study in UMBC just happens to be one of the schools to have the minor or certificate. So all the behavioral connective psychology I did, you know, I did this certificate and industrial psychology. So it all kind of worked out, and that's good. Yeah. All kind of worked out. Once you graduated, what did your early career look like? Did you find a lot of UX research positions out there? I mean, I'm asking, you know, sort of alluding to what you said before about companies are just now kind of starting to come around to UX research. I'm guessing you probably graduated like in the mid to late 2010s. So I'm guessing like, I don't know where companies looking for UX researchers back then? Oh no. First, I wouldn't have known to look interesting point there is what we were high school, they were always tell us, I went to reservoir high school in Fulton, Maryland and schools. One, they would bring this guy into talk to us how we are the best schools in the country. It was weird. It was like a Riley thing, and we actually believed it for a long time. The other thing was they don't tell us that the jobs that we're going to have are not yet created. And there's really hard for high school student to comprehend that it affects me now in a lot of ways where I think about daughter is going to do what I would do in ten years. Yeah. Maybe it's not there yet, right? And you are research definitely wasn't there when I graduated high school and definitely not there when I graduated college. I was looking for industrial psychology jobs, which were impossible to find as well. Hiring this industrial psychology to make the workplace better. Ha ha. No one was doing that then, but I bet now. Dude, very different forms, but no, I was looking at and connected with HR, so I look at a lot of HR jobs and stuff like that, but no, nothing about I knew nothing about user experience, which is a whole other story. I got into that or user experience research for that matter. Wow, that's just that part you mentioned about the person coming to your school and saying that the jobs that you'll have, they don't exist yet. That flashes me back to high school. So I went to high school in the 90s and I was in high school right when the Internet started to take off, like right when it's sort of the advent of the advent of the World Wide Web. Let's just say that it started to take off. So mid to earliest 90s. So we had like a computer lab. We had computers in the school and stuff and I was like learning HTML and teaching myself HTML. And not even knowing what I would do with it. Because it was like a skill that you learned and granted, I was, you know, studying, I was, I don't know what I was on track to be in high school. I was just studying. Actually, that's not true. I was on track to be a musician in high school. And I was doing a lot of math and stuff on the side because I was just good at it. But not really thinking like, oh, what am I going to go to college for? I initially wanted to go to college to major in English and be a writer because I was also writing. And my mom is like, no. You're not going to make any money doing that. You need to focus on something that's going to make money. Like, what about them computers? You always ask school, which are facing them computers. Why don't you study that, you know? But back then, this is like 1999. This is also the year where we thought Y two K was going to wipe out everything. So it's like the whole thing of like, I'm in a major in the computers, if Armageddon doesn't happen. And it's like, I would be sitting in my computer program in classes in the fall of 99. I'm like, why am I even studying this? Y two K comes and all of this is just like obsolete. We really didn't know. But to that point of like, you're studying for something or the job that you end up doing is something that does not exist yet, which is so wild to think about when you see just the path of how technology grows. It's crazy. I had no idea when I was in college that I would end up doing web design as a profession, because it was always a hobby back then. And I didn't know anyone who did it. This was 1999, 2000. I was reverse engineering web pages in notepad and just trying to figure it out. 'cause I didn't see anyone that did this. There were no schools that taught it. I didn't know anyone that if I knew people that did the web, they were like a webmaster, so it was always like this weird, even back then, like the terminology is not what it is now. There's all kinds of different stuff, but yeah, man, wow, that took me back. Just saying that part. That's another thing right there, right? Just a terminology of how things change. I mean, we're sitting here having this conversation and the jobs are will be in the future. We can even what that's going to be. Who is going to be and who's going to be doing it? How is going to come about? It's incredible thing to think about really. Look, I've seen job titles change as I started this show. I remember when I first started the show, I was not talking to UX designers. I was not, I think that maybe started about, I don't know, maybe about four or 5 years in, started getting a bunch of UX UX researchers UX designers on the show. I'm like, what is this UX? Is that like graphic design? What is that? Just try to figure it out because actually I think back then they just called it like UI UX designer so it was like information architect. And even in this show, I just use product researcher multiple times, but that just means UX researcher. But the U.S. designers are not calling those sub product designers. So I'm like, I'm a product researcher, right? It

"At Google and Amazon starting to mint more and more UX researchers. So us being the Google of UX research, just helps everyone discover information, sources, meet each other, the platform itself is great. But the community that we're building around the platform is really what's going to help it stand strong. And that community is through LinkedIn. The people we meet, research, we run a researchers, it's been very well received. We always been taking feedback and our mission now is to make the day to day of researchers just more fruitful. If you wake up, you're looking for something, improve your craft, go on research bookmark, use our search because that's what is built for. We want it to become every researcher's homepage one day. That's such a great way to just give back to the community, too. But such a great resource like that. So, you know, we've talked a lot about your work. You've kind of alluded to this a little bit earlier about your background being from Togo. So let's kind of jump into your origin story. Tell me about growing up in Togo. Yeah, man, I grew up in a small country in a West Coast of Africa called turbo, where Togolese people. So I'm both to release and American my parents movie when I was I was pretty young. I think nano ten and I grew up in Pablo's African gears who grew up in big communities, my grandmothers are around, my uncles, everyone kind of lived, we lived in the same, I would say it was a neighborhood and there's a beach now, right? I live like maybe ten, 15 minutes or from the beach by whole life until I moved, I moved here. My first language is French. So we study, I've started school pretty early. I think at two and a half or something I was in a diapers, my mom said, one thing that I really remember about being in turbo is the group of friends that I live with in our neighborhood that are played with every day we play soccer and stuff like that. The house of cross where Jessica and Gale and behind them were said, and they're this Stephen behind me, and we now that I think about it, we were pretty nutty kids, 'cause we're all these games. We try making up our own language at one point and we lost that book that that would probably be very useful right now. All of these things, that really Mark my childhood, right? And being raised in a household where, well, in the house or neighborhood where everyone is raising you, you know, it's hard to do something wrong. And growing up in the African community. But so what was a blessing to live in? And I mean, I was young and I go back, I would go back home often to visit and there's always a pleasure. We're very peaceful people. For the most part and the weather is nice and life is pretty good. It's pretty good, you know, beside from the usual challenges of being an African country, you know, a lot of unemployment, a lot of, you know, what do we do after our graduate? A lot of lack of just operational organization around the country. That's just the challenges we deal with as Africans, but it's really good. It's really good growing up. And you say, the beach town was this Lomé? Yeah. Yeah, I grew up in a town called Baghdad city, which is the city of baguette, which is just a neighborhood right on right across the road from you cross the big road, the highway, and you're walking right on the beach. Nice, nice. I work with the startup that I work at as a French startup. And so we have a lot of people from Benin, which I know is the neighboring country. And I think we have one or two people from Ghana. But I know about Togo, one, because I don't want to say I speak French, I studied French. I don't know. I feel like I have to be put in an immersive situation to know whether or not I speak it, but I studied it from second grade all the way through college. So I can read it, I can recognize it. I think I'm okay with speaking it, but if I speak to a native French speaker, I'll be like, yeah, we. But I did one of those. I think it was 23andMe or ancestry one of those. I think my answer she was traced back to Togo. I don't know where specifically in the country, I feel like I'd have to do like African ancestry or something to figure that out. But that's where I first had learned about Togo and I knew about it being a French speaking country. So and you say you moved here about 9 or ten years old? Yeah. Yeah, yep. We moved to Maryland. I remember Silver Spring. I went to a lemon juice called veers mill elementary school. I remember. Yeah. How was that shift? It was good. I mean, we were younger. I know it was tough for my parents. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I mean, I was younger. I was a kid, so it's like, oh my God, new things. And the language wasn't hard. I had an English shooter before I got here. That helped so much because American English is so different from what it is in person. Where I've been to a British English and stuff like that, but I mean, I would say all around smooth from us, for me, besides from leaving your friends back home and they're all all over the world now, it's ruslan and Europe and all of this stuff. So we're all over the place, but it was a pretty smooth transition for me I'll say. I actually went to Morgan state first. I went to three colleges in three years. Wow. So what I graduate high school, I had a full scholarship to compete in track and field at the shepherd. And I sit through shopper for Togo as a pro, but then when I graduated, I went to Morgan state. For me, you know, at that age, it was, I wanted to find the best coach. You want to connect it with more because I want you to throw as far as I can. And that didn't happen at first year, and I thought maybe I need to switch, then I went to university of Maryland, and Maryland in 2012, they cut the teams. They were budget stuff and they cut the teams. They track and field specifically, it would mobile some other sports. So I ended up going again to a school that I looked at when I was graduating. I actually visited UMBC and met with bob when I graduated, high school, I came back and there was a coach there, coach, an IoT school, a Greek man. So he became my coach and I finished at UMBC. So that's how my story went. I started on a black university, a historical black university, which was a great experience. To Maryland, and then UMBC where I graduated. Wow. So how was your time there? How was your time? You were an athlete, but also you studied industrial psychology. Like, how was your time there? Yeah, it was a great time. I mean, you know, a lot of this stuff, a lot of the friendships, a lot of the connections. I live actually write behind UMBC now where my wife and I live now. So I stayed pretty close. It was a great time. I would say, I mean, college is a blur in a lot of ways because athletes. We don't have the same exact experience as everyone else.

"And back and forth. And it's such an interesting business to be because you rely a lot on the ingenuity of people and their humanness to connect with other people to be able to even get them to talk to a recruiter or whatever. We sit on the back of a lot of companies, we're now just rolling out our own and being kind of the face of top. I think they call it a tough funnel sourcing. It's interesting about that. This happened post college tapeworm college 2014, 2014. And we started this in 2017. And my first job ever was actually being a sorcerer. And a company called a license, which is a thinner called something else now. And also sorcerer and I remember you see all this rags, how does people know degrees make you so much money and I'm like, oh my God, what's going on? Is this tech? Wait, do we have to do a traditional way of thinking and that was my first actually, that was my first ever knowledge or being in tech is just seeing all these racks and all these positions that anything about and turns out, you know, years later, somehow some way we end up as a sourcing company, which of the prime source of somehow and it changed so much from what I used to do in that internship, but it's still amazing to think about. No, that's great. I mean, especially to have that relationship, you know, also with these companies that they would come to you, like you said, for that kind of top funnel sourcing. In a way, it kind of reminds me of, you know, the interesting thing for having done this show this long is I get to talk to people at so many different companies. And so a lot of companies will reach out to me, which is actually why we started our job board a couple of years ago because so many companies will reach out to us and be like, we're trying to find black designers. We're trying to find black tech people. Where are they? You know where they are. I'm like, okay, I'm just interviewing one a week, but sure, I could try to help out. I mean, that's great though. I mean, it sounds like it's really taken off. Yeah, it's tough. It's taking up, we're trying to break out of just being breaking even and actually offering more to the people that work for us across we are a 100% African American and black firm, African firm. In the U.S., it is such that there are so many challenges that we have through to go through to work across borders. Everything from paying people without paying a bunch of fees because somehow no one has built a true way of paying people in Africa or engineers really smart people and it's really hard and we got to figure out things that I know a company had to figure out and we're getting better and we're hoping to kind of cross that very important people start seeing the quality that we bring to table level sourcing as well. Now this other company research bookmark, tell me about that that that grow out of the work you do through analog teams or is that from somewhere else? Huh. So okay, so research bookmark is like many things that I do an idea that hits me. Usually a night or randomly, and I start working on it kind of right away. It just how it goes. So this is how research bookmark came out. I a couple years ago I came across notion. And I oh, I love notion. I love sorry, go ahead. Notion, right? Notion change a game. Somehow, you know, there are a lot of note taking tools out there, but there are something about notion, and at the time I was also mentoring through a UX UX program, I think I'd done was or twice and I was in like a third round or something. And by mentees, you know, people ask about sources and I'm like, you know, building my bookmark and I drop it down and he just random stuff is a bunch of stuff. I'm sure they're important, but I can't, I can't make it out again. So I was notion came brought at that time. And I just, I just thought, what if I can just drop all of this somewhere? And I can share it with the world. Is this really possible? It blew my mind. Something very simple. I mean, you could have done the same thing with a worksheet or Google sheet, but for some reason, notional but just well designed, it is and everything. And I really wanted to use it. So research bookmark was actually born right there. And it seemed like a crazy idea. Everyone texted my friends like, guys, I'm going to put people are like, yeah, that's cool. It sounds useful. It sounds useful. You know, that's what I got at the time. From there, I think I try many names before I call it research nuggets or something. I was like, I love this naming stuff. When you start building something, whatever. And we got to the point where the first person to work or research bookmark with me was actually one of the mentees, but she didn't really last long. I know she was looking for work and stuff. But analog team. So here's what happened very strange table my cofounder had lived in Kenya prior to that year. He lived in Kenya for like a year or something of this sort. And he met a lot of people. We were trying to build software. Again, like I was telling you and what we came back, this was one of our first hire we hired a girl out of a town called nieri in Kenya and her name is to vanish mongi and she's actually the p.m., the Libyan British research bookmark now. And the way I was to train her was through research bookmark. So she would do work for analog, I don't know what we were doing at that time. She was helping us with projects. Whatever. And then I'll have her spend time on research bookmark. Okay, how do we categorize this? What do we do? And it was just back and forth. She's remote, I never met her. I actually just met her on this trip. A couple days ago, right? Crazy. So we're going back and forth building research bookmark. And this is our training ground. This is also me just saying, wow, this is maybe how you build a product. We get to the end of, I don't know, 2019, for a couple months. We had like maybe found your sources in there, organized, you know, weird ways, and I go, wow, maybe if we get a 500 to a thousand people to touch this page over a year, that would be amazing. Turn this thing on two weeks later, there's over 1200 people. Go, okay. And at that time, we started talking to researchers. We were rushing talking to researchers. What do you need? How can we make it better? Advisers and people that I look up to and stuff and we're talking and trying to improve it and make it better and it took a life on its own. It was really what happened. But I also started from coming across notion coming across the right person, being in the analog, having analog deliver a person that can work on it at the same time. This really impossible combination of stuff is what helped you research bookmark. How has it been received by UX researchers have you gotten a lot of great feedback from people? Yeah, yeah, it's been received well because essentially product research is going through this maturity, right? A lot of PhDs in the social sciences are crossing over into industry, and this is the way to get in. It may not be where to stay, but this is the way to get in and this is what's really interesting and fits their degrees. People coming out of college. Us that were trained as product designers at the very beginning. My background is in psychology. I became a product designer first, but I always knew I was going to go into research or strategy or something of that sort. All of these people are now gearing towards research, product research, companies are feeling the need, a lot of too late, but they are feeling the need. You see programs

"And looking at how we reorganize and really help the company. And from there, I take it into, all right, let's start breaking out what we really want to find out. And this is really, from a research perspective, this is one of the most important parts of the project for me, is what do we actually want to know? Because if you don't let me know that we can go on a whole run a couple months, weeks, and come back with the wrong data, because we didn't get to explore our true objectives. So from that perspective, I'm on to the project. I'm very much hands on throughout the process. All the way to deliver the recommendations and findings of the research. What would you say is probably like the most challenging part about what you do, as well as like what's the most rewarding part? Oh, the most challenging part is a simple idea. It's just communication and understanding. So reaching across to a cross functional partners and go, hey, I'm in need this. This information or what do we know about this? And kind of, especially in a remote work where we're not in the office, and you can just get to the person. Now, it's like messages is emails. It's this and that. So there's a lot that get lost in translation. So that's probably the most difficult part. I wouldn't say convincing people. It's just communication. We did a webinar. I did a webinar earlier this year where Mike from Clive told was telling us about a hard power and soft power. And researchers are in a position where we usually have soft power. Convincing people allow them to understand, therefore, helping them come on our side. We have really no hard power at work. So I'm constantly trying to exercise that, and that's probably some of the most challenging part. And there's also also the rewarding part when you can get understanding or consensus from different types of people in the room, agreeing on a project or even challenging the project to be better. So when we come to that reward question, a real rewarding part is sometimes you go and you hear something in an interview or conducted research with a user and it just blows your mind like, well, we didn't even think about that perspective. That's rewarding. Another rewarding part is when research pushes into the streams of building technology and you can see the user in the minds of everyone sitting around and the user is top of mind, their satisfaction is at the top of mind and their quality of life, which is something a KPI that no one really measures which I measure a lot when in anything I do is, how does that end up improving the person's quality of life? It's interesting that you sort of mention that about research because I know like a lot of startups probably they'll have you know product designers UX designers will have PMs, et cetera. But it seems like organizations have to reach a certain level of maturity before they really start implementing research, at least in a UX researcher position. Like even as I look back through my interviews 'cause I was like, I know I've interviewed a UX researcher before and I felt like I had done it sooner, like sometime this year or something, it was like 2020 the last time that I interviewed a UX researcher. It was someone from Facebook, which is not to say that a company like Facebook is only one that will have UX researchers, but I don't know, it seems like companies have to reach that certain level to really start taking research seriously as it relates to like product development or user features or things like that. Yeah, it's something that's somehow that narrative is so strange, right? Because if you think about it, wouldn't you want to make the best decision at the very beginning of all of this. So what happens is successful companies and products solve a massive problem. You don't need research to solve a really massive problem. You're just going to solve it. And that's true, right? There's no bridge. I build a bridge. Great. But then you're trying to build many other bridges across other cities, then you need to learn about them. This is where, for me, the narrative is so strange that research is the last thing that comes on after decisions have been made on a product on a road map. And it's scary, because at that point, you're not back, you're working on features, you're not helping people with hard power, stakeholders that are important, playing season are mine about decision that it should make. We don't necessarily see that a Puerto Rican business perspectives. That's not the goal, the goal is just to lay out what the user may expect from this product. And everything that comes along with that, yeah, it's very interesting because we're seeing its ramification in a market right now with layoffs at different companies and this is probably because there are a lot of stuff being worked on that may not the best or something of that sort. Would I hire your researchers at the same time you hire your first engineer, I guarantee your company is going to survive much longer. It may change direction a lot. You may not agree when you have someone that's sitting there essentially representing the user truly in your company. So it's a narrative that hopefully it will just auto change itself for researchers are coming at the front of that as we move forward. Now, earlier you alluded to two other companies. These are companies you sort of mentioned, like on your lunch break, you might do some things with them, but you found it you cofounded two companies. One called analog teams, which is a technology service company. And another one called research bookmark, which has been dubbed the Google for UX researchers. I want to start off with analog teams. How did that come about? Yeah, and a lot of teams is a pretty crazy story, man. But it starts like a lot of small companies will start. My good friend and cofounder, table, all I do, which is someone you probably need a talk to at some point as well, because he has an incredible story. We ran track together, and we were part of the same track team at UMBC. So kept up over the years. I know he's in product. I'm in product. We always talked about either the black struggle and we're both African. He's Nigerian, Togolese, and we're both have this huge affinity to Africa and the future and all of that. So we discussed many different things. And he would come over, this is when I was at, I was at probably KPMG, or even earlier than that. He would come over every once in a while, we'll work, and we'll talk about what can we do for Africa. How can we build and look at all these young people? Africa is super young. Perspective, most of the population is under 18. And it's crazy because it's also the biggest continent out there. And there's a lot that can be done. So we have the discussions and what can we do and we're both in product and we're like, okay, we're going to sort of software development company. And we went on that route, you know? And he brought in our dark cofounder, mischa luster, an amazing lady out of Dallas that also became one of my really, really good friend. Those three, we saw to try to see what we can do for the continent. We call we call ourselves bridge builders, building bridges from African Americans in the United States to Africans in Africa through technology. And this took us into a lot of failures, a lot of winds, a lot of improvement of quality of life for our employees, just to put things straight. We haven't made really a dollar in analog teams, given to this day. Even being cash positive, almost all of it

"A UX researcher at bolt and the founder of analog teams and research bookmark. Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. My name is I am a product researcher. I'm a founder. I basically build and help people build products that resonate with people with the way that you use that product and their own lives and how it improves their quality of life. So that's what I do. How has 2022 been going for you so far? I know you told me before we started recording. He just came back from a couple of trips. Yeah, 2022 has been it's a long year, but in a very short amount of time, this always happens to me whether the year starts off and I'm like, oh, you know, there's time. And then all of a sudden, we're in the middle of the year. And it's another one of those years again. So far, it's been really fruitful. I have two baby daughters, and they're all both under two. So we're seeing that growth into this new year, as well as just this whole post pandemic and I'm saying post because hopefully we over everything. Being able to see people in person again and the changes in the growth that have been happening in our lives. So overall very blessed year so far can complain. Nice. And you also started a new job this year you were UX researcher at bolt. How's that been going so far? Yeah, yeah, absolutely. So I actually saw her both on Valentine's Day so that there's a love story there. There's something interesting now that has happened. So when I go back out in the market, I'm like, oh, I'm looking for a new work. It seems like the first thing I applied to no matter how many interviews I get and offers it when I get back the first thing that applies to is always what gets back to me. And it was actually a conversation with one of my colleagues there now Korean and I will first issue with her energy she seems so cool calm and positive. And I'm going to be able to work with this person. So it's been really good there has been interesting because both is a startup and a unicorn and all of this, whatever time of day associated with this. So we've been going through our ups and downs as well there, but overall it's been really good. I really appreciate working with the team, which is really refreshing for me. Tell me more about the work that you're doing there. Yeah, so I'm a product researcher at bolt. We build checkout technology. So one click checkout, making sure people can fulfill their checkout experiences or buying stuff without any pain points. What I do on my day to day is help our product teams are project managers. Even our developers understand and get direction on how to build for our users. So again, I mean, product building product is a interesting thing. Usually companies will hire and same thing with both. And that's not really no dig at them. We'll hire researchers later on after they grow after teams have been established. And so forth and which, then we're playing a backend game. We're trying to catch up and get in front of the room map. So what I do oftentimes has to do with clearing and bringing light to some gray areas, some dark areas that we haven't built in before, when it comes to user understanding. How are users going to take to this? How have they taken to it before in the marketplace? Can we build something that satisfy that truly satisfies their need? And do we understand how to do that? A lot of what I do is talking to users, establishing the right questions with the p.m. setting objectives and going to get answers that can actually help the company grow and build products that impact the market. What's a regular day look like for you? Oh man, I wake up early. I try going to sleep early as well. But I wake up early, probably around 6, 6 30, my oldest daughter wakes up pretty early. So that gets me up I'm off to give them a bath, changing and making sure that, you know, we have some good breakfast before. They had to take care. So the first part of my day is actually just with my family. Try not to look at my phone because I know by the time I wake up there messages and all types of stuff in my mind. So that's the first part of my day. From there, taking them to day care and then I'm heading to training. Usually I can get a good training session and work out or run before a lot of people wake up and this is really my saving grid because it helps me kind of get through the day even kale. So that's the first half of my day. The teams I work with are usually on the West Coast. So by noon, everyone is getting up and working. I'm already probably working with some of my colleagues that are on the east coast. And we is ramping on, right? Now, you're talking to people, we're figuring out questions, hey, we're running this research. Are we doing this? Hey, I'm in the users, are we talking to? Hey, what's the hangup on this, right? Oh, can we find out something about this? So my whole day really essentially the daytime is a web of communication. It's trying to relay information, understand what people need, understand what I need, and moving on like that. So that's a 9 to 5, right? And I'm executing trying to deliver on stuff. And in between that, our lunch time, I may have a meeting for research bookmark or something or analog among outside. And then we get to the afternoon where my dad is really fast. I got to go pick up the kids. Get them back, spend enough time and some good quality time with the family. And get back to work. Probably until midnight or one sometimes, depending on the time of the year. And then I'm off to some reading some praying and sleeping. So that's usually where my days are like. That's a full day. Yeah. Yeah. You said earlier, you go to bed earlier, and then you turn around and say, your work, it's all midnight. Come on. That's early sometimes, 'cause, you know, there's so much to do. This is in my ideal in a dream world. I would like to go to sleep a 9 30 or ten. I'm an old man. I like to go to very early. So I'm working towards that, but in most of the time, completely honest, we're getting some midnight. These are the busy times of the year. No one thinks it's up to me. I can probably make ten 30. Ten 30 11, right? When I'm not too crazy busy. Okay. All right. When new work comes in because you say you're doing kind of all this communication. It sounds like you're active almost at every step of the project. Is that right? Yeah, I tried to be when newer comes in, is usually comes through probably project management, a product management, and we are building a mature practice where we have intake forms and we try to get people to kind of get in line, but not in a bad way. Just so we can organize ourselves. So where it comes in, we take it from there, look at the backlog and see what is the most important work, especially when we have been reshuffling,

"It? Oh, I don't think I ever had that moment. My most profound was CBS Ted shaker sent me to the fall of the Berlin Wall, and that was just, you know, one of the stories of the century and as I mentioned, my dad had grown up in the Netherlands and they were under the Nazi boot for 5 years, Rotterdam was bombed in 40 liberated in 45. So for me to be at the fall of the Berlin Wall and see people come through that Brandenburg gate from East Germany, I just can't tell you it was just so profound for me. Yeah, I would say that, you know, I mean, being on the field for some pretty major super bowls, you know, we're great. I have one funny story that I worked for a little while. You did too for real sports, and they sent me to Shanghai for a week. It was the first interview Yao did before he came before he entered the NBA draft. And as you know, when you do a story in a communist country, it's very involved. You have the government minder. You have the interpreter. You have somebody else watching over you. Of course, I would have somebody like you, there's a producer. So there's just all these people. So every question has to go through all these people, right? Would you ask, yeah, and then it goes to three other people, and the translator, and then it goes back and you get the answer. The very last day, the last question I asked Yao Ming was, he made a $20,000 for the Shanghai sharks. And so my last question was, yeah, you're about to enter the NBA. You know, you're going to go from making $20,000 to and he cuts me off, looks at me and says, I'll get used to it. So I guess the whole week was like a joke. How do you remember everything so well?

How Do the Policies of the Biden Regime Play Into Human Trafficking?
"Does the open border policies of this administration? How does that play into sex trafficking? And then can you define really kind of a scenario of what sex trafficking looks like for a 1415 or 16 year old? And who's really behind this? Yeah, first the border, there's actual footage of our teams being there using night vision, the first point of contact watching men bring children in because of our administration says if you're an adult, you bring a child into this country, you're accepted. But we were proving we improving clearly that their trafficking young children in and it's horrible the way it happens. Case scenario might be they kill a mother who has a child who's on the migrant trial, but they just kill her and take the child and this is again most of this is cartel, sex trafficking. But here in the U.S., one of the best horrific statements I've ever heard was by a pimp who said, we appreciate the dads and the stepfathers doing the prep workforce before we get the kids. And the whole landscape is changing. What does it mean by that? Sorry to interrupt. What does that mean? That young girls were being abused by their dads, stepfathers. And then it breaks their mind. There's an element of trauma which makes their job so much easier. And listen, I want to tell people from a very personal standpoint, one my father was a drug dealer in a pimp. And the second I was abused as a kid sexually and left for dead on a commercial cooler. So I speak with a lot of personal passion about this. That's why it's so important that people really understand there's an evil behind this at every level. And yeah, I think definitely people in the government and positions of authority and media want to cover and stop any type of open exposure because look at what happened with CNN. And again, it's on both sides of the Yao 'cause perversion no doubt doesn't have you look at plenty of Republicans like Denny has certain we could go through the list. It's a bipartisan sickness

I apologize not problem. Date chairman of punchbowl. Get your punchbowl news at punchbowl news dot com check last hour. I played chuck schumer speech. You wrote your assessment of the binding legislative agenda. Did you take into account the impact of the shimmer speech which brosseau told maria barham yesterday has deeply soured the republican caucus. I mean to the point. They don't want to talk to the guy. yeah. I actually don't. They didn't talk much to anyway. I don't find that big. I don't find it to be this positive. I've been through a lot of michael's where speeches what we're supposed to ruin relationships. The fact is the reality is. There's not much cooperation that we anticipate anyway. I think the conventional wisdom is wrong on the democratic side. I think that because mcconnell blinked and this lasts debt limit fight he makes it less likely appoint again And i think that i just i. I don't think the speeches what did it. I mean it's not like we were in a golden era for cooperation. What did you make joe mansion face in his hands and then leaving. We reported at the time that he He used next live instead. It was. I read batting. Yeah i can't remember exactly what it was I think listen. I think i am the cynic here is you know hugh i think. Being against schumer is beneficial for him. But i do think. Joe manchin owns chuck schumer in a way In the sense that he can't get anything done. Schumer can't without joe mansion so You know what mansion said In in many respects was right that if you want to have more progressive agenda you don't have to worry about joe manchin so like progressives to the senate you know and i think that's the reality of it now. Can i explain to you. My theory of what happened last week. I think mitch mcconnell one. Even though people think he lost. I think he intended people think he lost so that he could win. In december he could not allow the debt crisis right now so he waited and waited and waited extended it till december and he will allow it in december. Couldn't allow it now. It might have the reconciliation going to a higher number now. The democrats have to work out their reconciliation and if they do they're going to have passed trillions of dollars in spending and they're gonna have to borrow for it to reconciliation to get your take ship sherman. I don't think that yeah i mean. Listen i i think that he. I don't think that he won or lost. I think this was kind of a stupid fight with an. It's now it was a stupid deal. That really screws over everyone involved. I mean i agree with you. He couldn't have a he could not afford to have a default And he did. In the only the i guess i would say. He won. Because schumer's main argument against reconciliation and lifting with reconciliation was that he didn't have time that was schumer's made argument yao He can't make that argument. So i i and i hear that I do hear that. There's a lot of anger in the republican conference. Though i mean. We can't underestimate that On what mcconnell. There's no movement to get rid of them that silliness that is coming from whatever wherever trump. We're getting that from. Oh you mean getting rid of mcconnell not not a not a chance

I guess we call it. Independently cease to complete the dissertation Free investments are the partners of fines. What you would call the geez or general arthur's So you'll wanna bus. No find themselves are the ones who say yeah exactly Whereas for corporate these we have an investment committee that can be need up old brit representatives like people from different business units or on the case of kickstart on. Yeah i think we're be like me have a mix of People from globe but also independent Disease and advisers who share guy know their experience their perspective which is a site the global perspective which also inboard then but knicks that with a side points of view that discussion third is measured. I think so foreigner an independent. Vc success is measure britain much by financial desserts hours. It's it's you know how much money to hide. Access did give you back exactly the power though there whereas for corporate of uc's again it can be a mix economic financial thirds but also The strategic value that he corporate able to drive for the mother the mother ship or the mother come charted. Okay in terms of the closing clients if i can just jump into the united sink for independent. Dc in general. I feel The decision making density faster because like if a partner meets you can think about it. They can for their other partners and come up with its cheap. You know in restart about the time. I guess for He's obviously very sometimes of your decision. I guess the other thing is he sees as mentioned earlier. Kind of clear clear agenda have clear metrics for success. It's just all about like kudu. I get the most companies could and also i think the They also are viewed as being able to to value a company objectives mccarthy. Looking what should i not you this company today so i can still make money tomorrow. Where's dc's I am strengthening on either objectives of value ethers companies. Because maybe they're also evaluating not just how much your company's worth. But how is your company is worth if i integrate that in might mrs operations and stuffing it's out but the flip side the womb. Y you wanna work with corporate piece. I would argue in a region where you have a lot of prominent Influential business houses sharper. There is the you'll get access to wu. Corporate decision makers forum said that can help Scaled up your business faster if you know how. The decisions are being made of You know you have partners who can help facility discussions in and chrissy so you don't get somewhere there so i was gonna say that These kinds of value. And you think your job is the seals accompanying your or just a resisting. Money for company is putting together their sake. Mix the of injuries. Mo of investors. Who can add. You know i need. But the strategic advice bundy's in order but also commercial bills every investor completed point that it's about learning how to manage that constellation in snow absolutely and the guy always remember. This is not zero sum. When you say that okay. There's a corporate vc in in for there's an independent music. Who should i choose. You can do both okay and kim. They fit the around that you're trying to raise. Because if you have both they both you think less money from each of us the you meet the requirement that you need for that round. And that's what we did in the last cedrun asia our strategic. Vc victims were trying to get. Indonesia is heading toward a discovery and they did an amazing job walking us through. I don't know anything about indonesia a. and now we eclipsed so many bought told us that we could have fallen into if we went there. Blind right there. Boom and again that's corporate. Vc is part of the lippo group one of their gpc's the liberal group. Which apparently i didn't even know back. Then what are. The biggest companies are cobra rates across the whole region.

The CEO of Team Secret on Dota 2 & Team League Models
"So can you talk about like the you know the foundation of take grit out is different to say traditionally sports organization you know how the how the play is kind of at the center of everything. Sure sure you know when I look out in the ecosystem and not everything is like this right but a lot of teams are It's a it's kind of split where a lot of teams are player own operated in lead right which which is really good for content creation engaging with the community that kind of thing but usually like on the business side economy falters. And then you know you have a lot of new entrance into east sportswear. It's a very traditional business executive-led right whether it's you know a private Equity Company that invests eastwards. Put say a leader in place or someone from traditional. Traditional. Media The comes in place and weeds on these sports team. Where connection to the fan base in the audience is not so great. And generalizing here, right there's all different kinds of other other models I'm for us. We kind of saw this happening and what we wanted to do was to say, okay, you know, I, come from a background of traditional business. I can come run the business, build the business, but we wanted to also have very authentic and have a huge amount of player lead influence into how we build the brand into how he engaged with the fan base and the community and so that's why you know working with the DOE team has kind of foundation we said, let's build out team secret originally adopted team, but we can expand the business. We can build it into an actual business rather than just a, you know a player T-. Even today you know we. on the business side, you know run the business but on the ownership front we have some players that have ownership in the business and are also involved in the day today activities. You know we've been lucky enough to have on the PODCAST and scraped content with a few kind of like OJ's is the industry especially you know you had. We've had God's. All the you know he's being paramount in in a lot of commentary and building the same globally and we had pay p day kind like the shining light out of trying to build anymore it's America We've had unloader from Sweden as well and I guess you guys have another one especially, which is in the interim with poppy. So I'd love to I'd love to talk from your perspective around a lot of my discussion with paper day especially was around the business structure of the way that daughter to works versus are other Games. So there's like an article that came out about a Singapore tame, which is just disbanded was like the the shining stuff out of that region and. One of the major reasons they said that it that it disbanded his Ju to just a lack of understanding or the lack of support from valve in the to infrastructure it's it's you know it's great presence and cradle content around how you know the DOJ to international is the largest single single price police boats tournament. You know thirty plus million dollars in the first place team will often walk away with ten million dollars in the pocket and it's fantastic. You Ajay and you win those inter but it's it's not great if you don't qualify for the international or you know if you want to rely on something other than simply pros money so be interested in talking about. How do you say that the dietary market obviously guys legal agents Tuesday say by Candidate that franchise very strict model of detaining applying onset and Thomson indicts. You've got all that structure heady. This is done until you, which is just really all over the place but but massive priciples. Yeah I mean I think there are pros and cons of both models I think in. League of legends at the the model tends to be more Even across more equitable across tons of opportunities where all the teams and I think in Doda, it's very much like feast or famine I if you know. If you look at all the teams right from previously is it's like. Either you're a top four team and you. kind of break even or slash make a small profit or you're not a top four team and you're just like losing money all the time. Basically note right and it's like the the price was a little bit of a Mirage because. In Doda, the majority, the vast majority of the price will go to the players and this is not knock on the players because I think the players are super telling that they deserve everything that they that they earn right But outside of price full, there's not a huge amount of other opportunities except for direct sponsorship. For teams actually drive right and you need teams because you know. Not every player is like some players are very mental to be in contact creators influences on all that stuff but the vast majority players I know just WanNa, play I. WanNa play, and so in order for Doda and Doda brands to to build into sort of products. And to market the players into engage and build the audience and do all these things. You'd Orquesta do that right? Because the players are not going to do it themselves and they didn't WanNa do themselves they want to they want they WANNA play right? They want to figure out strategies they want perfect game. And so you need to have an ecosystem around as supporting structure around that to be able to enable them to do that as well as. Create this product around Doda so that the fans can engage in consume it. And I think the I think the finances did the structure Doda is is dangerous because you know the the the kitchen seen not not super well supported even in the tier one scene beyond top four teams I don't think you're doing too well. and you'd see you know teams exit. You see teams go in and out. I'm for these reasons because it's like you either you're winning all the time and you're kind of stable from that because you have some price earnings or. You know you're just like middle of the pack number seven, number, eight, I, I don't think you're doing too well. You're really relying on brand sponsorships and things

Remembering David Stern
"Longtime NBA. Commissioner David. Stern turn passed away on Wednesday after suffering brain hemorrhage he was seventy seven years old. Here's Jeremy Shop with remembrance of the man left an indelible mark on the sport of basketball ask ball in his thirty years as commissioner. David Stern made it possible for the NBA to scramble from the brink of bankruptcy and irrelevance to a position of global significance unthinkable in the dark days of the late nineteen seventy s and early nineteen eighties. The League was beset by drug problems. uh-huh teams were going bankrupt in the finals. Braun tape delay that stunning reversal of fortune is why stern will be remembered as perhaps the rapist leader of any sports league ever. Of course the League's rebirth can be attributed solely to stern savvy and toughness. It wasn't stern turn after all who fashioned from clay transcendent Larry Bird Magic Johnson rival rate. It wasn't stern imbued Michael Jordan with his gifts. Either but make no mistake. There might be no other sports executive ever who so deftly utilize the tools at his disposal. No other commissioner so clearly recognized recognized and exploited the resources of his sport with Stern in charge the NBA called itself fantastic but it was really a star factory the league marketed. It stars to the Hilt No league ever better mastered the art of Marketing Than David Stearns. Da at its inception seven years before the advent of the Internet not to mention twitter or instagram the slam dunk contest was a phenomenon. must see event created by stearns Lieutenant Edrich welts people too young to seem Jordan versus Dominique. In the heat of the competition can hardly fathom how big a deal it was then in nineteen ninety two. There was the Dream Team. The ultimate expression of stern strategic thinking of his desire to make the league a global brand Dan with Jordan and magic in Barclay in Olympic uniforms. The world was suddenly. Cyprus turns unique brand of basketball. Diplomacy and capitalism ah soon the entire planet would be turned into a marketplace for NBA TV rights. And eventually the jerseys players such as Lebron James Ten years after the first Dream Team won gold in Barcelona yao-ming was the top overall pick in the draft. This was not coincidence in in. Its own way. Yes arrival was a milestone in the same order of magnitude as the magic bird rivalry in the rise of Michael Jordan. There was a good reason why stern headed seat. On the Council on Foreign Relations in terms of his management style. Stern was not a man to be trifled with he could be intimidating demanding reading imperious. In fact all of the above but he can also be charming and refreshingly blunt and honest even on the subject of the Owners for whom he worked for example when the New York Knicks lost a court battle about sexual harassment in their front office demonstrates that they're not the model intelligent management of course under stern rain for so long. There were many challenges and controversies. Even as total revenue players salaries skyrocketed. There were too many lockouts. There was infamous Pacers Pistons Pistons Brawl in Detroit which exposed yawning disconnect in the relationship between players and fans. Tim Donigi veteran. NBA referee went to prison on gambling related charges but in the end David Stern will be remembered for all the ways in which he elevated the game enriching his his owners and the players popularizing the league and places where it had been virtually no he also helped create the WNBA and champion day. Back when stern took over it would have seen it best unlikely that the NBA would become a global behemoth. It's perhaps the ultimate testament David stearns vision. The now it all seems to have been

In the NBA vs. China battle, business could suffer
"We begin today with the not entirely idle speculation of what James Naismith would think of the sport that he invented low these one hundred twenty eight years ago and the global economic context in which it finds itself we are of course a long way from the peach baskets that Naismith used as the original hoops and the global economy is nothing like it was in eighteen ninety one but a quick glance at the news sports or otherwise reveals basketball as the pivot point perhaps the biggest corporate story of this day National Basketball Association in the aftermath of a tweet from Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey last week supporting anti-government protests in Hong Kong the response from Beijing has been swift and clear an NBA fan event before a preseason game between the Brooklyn Nets and La Lakers in Shanghai has been cancelled a public training session for the nets also in Shanghai I also called off corporate Chinese sponsorships with the NBA Undone meanwhile the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says Moore he has the right to exercise his freedom expression it is a big big deal the story with peril plenty so we got marketplaces and you're on the line to hash things out with US hey hey solar this is kind of basic but clearly it seems the basics have been lost in this the NBA has been for decades now one of the most progressive of profession all sports leagues do you suppose that somehow they didn't see something like this coming and if they didn't see it why didn't they see what will that's the and you're getting right to it right the difficulty here for the NBA is indeed it does want to be seen as a progressive league doesn't want to go off brand but the NBA also has to be three of its brand in China the brand is tarnished in the eyes of Chinese businesses of consumers that's GonNa prove difficult and costly for the NBA amity in China this is something that every American Sports League is GonNa take note of because they all see the money in China they want to do business there and even spoke with a sports marketing professor from China he kept telling me that the everyday business of sport in China it's market based right it's similar doing business in the as we all know that we've heard that one hundred times then he said just to be sure not to get on the wrong side of the government because then the market gets thrown out the window well that's that's so interesting so clearly the calculation that's happened here is that the Chinese government has decided it does not need the NBA's brand new basketball in China right because they're grown they're leagues and and they can in essence do with themselves no matter how popular Yao Ming in the Houston Rockets and all of those folks are over there but the NBA is it is the brand right Chinese basketball is NBA China basically when Yao Ming came onto the scene in two thousand and two the celerity of basketball in China skyrocketed because you had to do out there who looked like them you had two hundred million people watched that first game it's going to be so difficult for the Chinese government if they just want to say look we got this we're GonNa have basketball basketball is great here we have all sorts of stars it's going to be so difficult because the other thing is Americans who don't make it to the NBA go and play in China and so there's so much sort of meshing there with the NBA in China that's going to be so difficult for the Chinese to be able to do that let us take this away from basketball for two seconds because you're NBA is certainly not the first company that has run into trouble in China today there was a controversy with apple in one of its APPs let's people identified police in Hong Kong and the Chinese government is displeased with that there is wider risk there is also wider acknowledgement of some of the challenges of doing business in China tipping point do you think I mean you know spitball that for me that's what I kept asking the smarter people than I am about this when you're talking about sort of Chinese relations and things like that and it's funny because everybody that I spoke with says you know what these are hiccups and businesses are going to have to do better at navigating business in China nobody is saying they're going to pull out of China no business person thinks that because there's so much money there they just don't see an American company just pulling out because of difficulties so instead of let's get out of here this is a tipping point we don't want to deal with China it's figuring out how to do business better there and dealer cover sports in a bunch of other stuff force advocate ut in Austin Texas andy thanks a bunch appreciate it you got a

NBA working on relationship with China after controversial tweet
"Lakers are in China Darren Shanghai right now they're gonNA play a game there Thursday morning early our time four thirty our time and then they're gonNA play another game Saturday in Chins in but there is a lot of controversy swirling around something more the rockets GM tweeted last week it would be would it be misleading to say things have calmed down but Adam silver's over there he's in Shanghai he's attempting to deal with it and it's hard to say if it's down or not the original Durham won't Daryl Morey tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong and China and when I say China it's not just the government it's it's actual NBA Fans in China have responded and said they basically cancelled the Houston Rockets. Yeah I which I don't know that's fair enough but it's it's realistic they really have they shut down the Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets have been the heritage beloved team in China going back to Yao. Ming and that tweet is unbelievably incendiary in Hong Kong there's a separatist movement movement and the Chinese are and when I say the Chinese it's not just the government Chinese citizens an NBA fans in China are dead set opposed that separatist movement and so it's caused a gigantic controversy here's a little bit of what Adam Silver said about it this afternoon. CCTV announced that because of my remarks supporting Daryl Mores freedom of expression not the since of his statement but his freedom of expression they were no longer going to air the Lakers Nets preseason games that are scheduled for later this week a and it's not something we expected to happen I think it's unfortunate but if that's the the consequences of US adhering to our values we still feel it's critically important we adhere to those values my plan long has been to travel to Shanghai tomorrow and I plan to attend the Lakers Nets game Thursday night it's my hope that when I'm in Shanghai I can meet with the appropriate officials and discuss where we stand and again put those remarks from Daryl Morey and my remarks in an appropriate context of a many decades long relationship and see if we can find mutual respect for each other's political systems and beliefs but I'm a realist as well recognize that this is this this issue may not die down so quickly Daryl Morey has apologized actually James Harden also made this state apologize you know we love China we love playing near I know for both of us individually we go there wants to twice a year they show the most important love so now we appreciate as a fan base and we love everything you know they're about in in no way appreciate the support that they give us individually and as an organization so You know we love you if you're wondering why Adam Silver has is kind of taken the position that he has he is he's issued a couple of statements this was too and and you know to give us a little more background Shanghai is fifteen hours ahead of us so it's tomorrow morning in Chiang it's Wednesday morning Adam Silver's already there and he's hoping to have those meetings today in his statement that he issued on Tuesday when he was in Japan he said the NBA will not put itself in a position of regulating what players employees seasoned team owners say or will not say on these issues we simply could not operate that way so he is standing up one hundred percent for not necessarily anything Darryl said or tweeted specifically but for his right to say it yes in in that's why and then as you point out there are many many people's very upset in China and we'll see what happens next but you know Michael and I are hoping touring the Games a Thursday morning and Saturday morning it'll be four thirty am both days if you want to get up early you can listen to us or we're going to simulcast those those our call on spectrum sports net too so we're just waiting to see what happens next in the story but we're looking forward to doing those games I said earlier in the show it one thing I've learned about sports and you understand this steve better than most people because you've covered so many Olympics is sports can be a great unifier it really can it can bring people together you can you can see people jumping up and down and hugging each other we don't even speak the same languages so I I'm hoping we can play the games we can bring him to you and that cooler heads will prevail but we'll see we'll see yeah there's a lot of upset people here is Rachel Nichols who's actually in China the conflict with China top of mind for the League office the NBA is actually facing backlash on both sides here they're facing backlash from those who support the anti-government protesters in Hong Kong who feel that silver hasn't gone far enough to support rockets GM Daryl Morey but they're also facing backlash inside China from those who feel that silver has not gone far enough to condemn what more he actually said one of the loudest voices in that WHO's actually hall of Famer Yao-ming who is now the chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association Yao is one of the people but silver is hoping to meet with when he gets to China which will be on Wednesday yeah he sort of he's taking heat from both sides now sober both from both from people think he didn't go far enough to support Daryl Morey and people in China who think he didn't go far enough in condemning them here's Doc rivers this is new uh-huh doc rivers talking about what's going on with the NBA in China hit for saying what we believe we did as we disagree disagree I disagree with everything you say I have the right to do that and I have the right to Silverstone Tom and that's good that's good that's what this is about freedom of speech and and we should always have who consequences for what you say and that's why we get back to the Lincoln Body before you say there could be possibly and that's by the way what we're seeing we're seeing enormous consequences for Daryl Morey exercise his freedom speech and as of now Darryl still the GM of the rockets tillman for t- to the owner of the rockets came out right away soon as Daryl tweeted that and said he doesn't speak with Iraq it's he doesn't speak for the NBA. I have no problem with Daryl does her his personal views I don't think they're gonNA lose his job over this we we shared with you earlier in the show if you don't listen to US regularly we uh-huh Darryl he's been a guest on this show probably ten times he's one of the reasons he's crazy we'll talk about anything and so Adam standing behind him and saying look whether you agree with what Tara said or not he has the right to say it I think probably means I was going to hang onto his GIG but I'm speculating I don't know yeah a lot of that came up over the weekend and it seemed to calm down a little bit but again this story is continuing to unfold and we don't exactly know how it's going to turn out when all is said and done what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the Houston Rockets be what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the NBA be how will the be altered how will that be changed in any way we don't exactly know where it seems to me the one of the things that will be important as if Adam silver can sit down with the Ming who is a great ambassador for Basketball Chairman of Chinese basketball so that could go a long way in mending the damage that has been

"Not to do something sometimes they feel the same but a flat stomach and I cannot separate them and Eve right hot and sexy tip is about to get Brian Hutton sexy up here. Yao All right.

You've got this question that you can ask yourself to tap into your natural knowing each us has a natural knowing. It's something like a body knowing kind of like your intuition and it's simple question and it goes like this when you think about doing the thing that you're talking about confused or scared to do it. Do you feel expansive or contracted. So Gray says she has no idea what the hell that means. Let's dive into what expansive mean so if you think about something and you feel expansive. It's kind of like your shoulders open up. Your chest opens up. You get really excited. Even if there's a little bit of fear involved. It feels like Oh my God. I really love to do that. There's kind of like a forward forward motion everything expanse now. Let's talk about contracted so that feeling if you think about doing the thing you're thinking about doing and all of a sudden you start to kind of pull. Dan Or your head starts to shake. No you start to feel a sense of dread or like God that feels like pulling teeth fast sense of contraction and that's how you know if it's detracted feeling that's your intuition or your gut telling you stay away. Honey do not go near that thing with a ten foot pole on the other hand. If you feel expansive and you still have some fear go for it. It's a good thing enough see now. She gets strategy number two. You want to kind abuse that same inner ability but this time you're going to pull in your friends and here's what I mean so as a coach I often work with people and they'll tell me about the projects that are coming up and I just watch them and it's really interesting because when people start to talk about their ideas and things that they WANNA do their body doesn't like Alexa cures my body never lies and when you hear someone talking about something that they really shouldn't do. They actually start to dead like they get pasty. They start to look depressed almost like their body language starts to pull in and then when people talk about something that they're really excited about that they should do even though it scares the crap out of them they light up like a gain. Christmas tree so here's implement this you gotta get some good friends around you and you. WanNa talk through the ideas or this opportunity that you're not sure if you should take or not and have have them really pay attention now. Of course it's important that these friends are honest that you trust them and that they actually care about you and I promise you talk through this and they'll be able to tell hot minute whether or not you should go for it just based on how your body and your face is reacting now finally leave with an awesome quote from my friend. Steven Spielberg eld who I interviewed yeah he has this awesome quote which set the more important project project is to your souls evolution. The more you'll resist it blew. Stephen Press feel awesome question gray. Thank you

It's been around at traditional funerals mourners often wash the body, but some weeks ago as cases started erupting around to town's called Kotla and Bhutan Mbo. The investigators found that patient after patient had something else in common. They had all recently visited a health clinic for treatment for some other disease like respiratory infection or malaria, the I want to hospital that treat me I got through and then few this after I stopped having fevers that were the first signs of Ebola. WHO officials estimate about one fifth of the recent cases in Kotla and Bhutan. Bo were infected at clinics, and when y'all started visiting the clinics, it was pretty obvious. How this was happening even the government run facilities large hospitals, hadn't set up triage tents to separate possible. Ebola patients from everyone else, this is is not when non in this.

Visit one of them was there without wedding gloves. No gloves for Germain. The takeaway was clear even weekly visits were not enough since then he's assigned to people from his organization to keep watch of the clinic all day every day. And he's on the same thing for the eleven other facilities international medical corps is working with. He's confident it will work eventually Jentzsch. Someone behavior is not one day or two this.
