Is DeFi Boom Going To Be Like The ICO Boom? - Chris Coney
"Are we in those heady times now of there's a lot of excitement a lot of people saying terms like ten x hundred x kind of. Defy another bubble just starting like the bubble in two thousand seventeen. What's your thought? Defies a new web. I don't think he's good as Crypto is. As defined defined is. Entirely, decentrally smart contracts on a theory of autonomous I think that's what we mean by defy. So I'd say we are in a noble under the ICO style bubble where the very haley stages of it. I mean the time defy is really just tied to come into SA mainstream consciousness I mean in Crypto so it's What I meant by is people a using the ton defy in the same way that people were using the term ICO excitement. So it's become I oversee decentralized finances Is is a broader thing but that buzzword of defy defy projects their projects, what what defy project is now is it going one hundred, x, ten tax the seems to be that groundswell of excitement out there and some detractors speak into a saying this is just another bubble. It's GonNa pop soon, I personally think this is a good way to run yet and I wanted to chat to you about do we think is going to be different this time? Are there any lessons we can learn? Is this a ton of opportunity and those type of things? Really. Right so it depends on the individual. So is it going to be different this time? No because you're going to get all the first time foam was coming in. To the defy and that they're not going to learn that lesson yet because ain't been through it before they're not into a like. stratospheric rising thousand gains that haven't learned that lesson. Yeah. You and I, have been through that right? Haven't we crypto for several years before he's still didn't prepares for it did it. But now we've been through that wave. We've got the experience it will recognize the seconds I round. Of New uses just just having experience and the same thing will happen get to them. Yeah. So how so if anybody's coming into this space of the moment I mean. I'm sure studying this stuff is at least as much as I just looking at all this raft defy projects and. Every every time I open twitter or one of the social media things somebody talking about you know the next one of the. Big Barter Trade One was part of which was I think that's one of the fastest selling. So I've seen since back in two thousand, seventeen sold out in one minute at the public cell level and there was this kind of hysteria. Again of people desperately trying to get into I was watching on telegram desperately trying to get in and I just thought wow, this all smells a bit familiar to two thousand seventeen. So we went ICO, and then we went I e initial exchange offering, which was supposed to bring some kind of. Quality control say two, the initial coin offering. So that was Kinda Goad. The difference with defy you don't even have that. Right. So As when I see if someone wants to raise funds look I'm going to single anyone in particular about all these defy products have token. The often trade on the platforms that launching. So that's one way of raising money I. Suppose if you can get your token trading and that was the key CEO's wasn't it if you could get least exchange, then the price could rise in the founders could generate some income well, doesn't even rely on the ICO's thing or the thing anymore if you launch it defies Korea Ed smart contracts think about Yam for example. As soon as people start trading it, if you the founder got some founders tokens pre mind what if you want to call it? You can sell them on a decentral and there's nothing anyone can do about it. Right? It's It's the same problem is how do you know I'm not actually? Trying to keep up this time because. So much time wasted journey is Yoda is 'cause you just did not know what was what I'm not following into anything this time if I missed the Yumbo if I miss this about, okay right I'm going to wait for the initial rise unfold and then see what sticks and then I'll look into it.
Is This The Reason You Find It Hard To Meditate?
"One of the most frequent questions I get from people in our communities, why am I finding it hard to meditate? Are they using the wrong techniques? Saturday, utilizing incorrect strategies are they just not suited for meditation or is it something else? This is an important topic that we're going to explore interests episode, which happens to be the third party for. A yogi breath work CD's I've done two episodes before this is to make sure that you listen to do as well. But before we proceed especially, if you're on your iphone, the make sure that you hit the subscribe button because that does something. To the Algorithm makes the episode appear in front of a stranger who otherwise would never have come across our podcast. So take half a second please press the button subscribed. So, going back to our topic for today, which is why do people find it hard demented and it's interesting because I had the same challenge when starting out on my own spiritual awakening journey and this this can be hard because you feel if I don't meditate then it's over for me. What else am I supposed to do how we like on my mind? How will I reduce the stress that I'm experiencing right now huckabee alleviate this anxiety. That's. All only well, firstly, calm down because lucky for you. The aid should Yogis of India spent thousands of years through trial and error to figure this stuff out if probably went through the same challenges as you and me were going through and what is the challenge when it's hard to control your thoughts it's so hard to control your thoughts because your thoughts are subtle, you can't hold onto them. You can't catch them you can't move them. They're always there. And when you thought the of died down, the gentle begins once again sounds familiar. So it's heart and I feel you. So before we talk about the solution that these Yogi musters came up with, let's I understand what is the goal of Yoga? What is it going to yoga the goal of Yoga? Is Do not get fit although that's worth. A lot of people think the real goal of Yoga is to unite east to merge. Merge with what you ask well. With the universe around you the goal of Yoga is to dissolve your ego self and go beyond the sense of separation and realize that you my friend are connected with everything around you. The animals, you objects, the people when you go past this separation, it is as if you have downloaded the truth of the universe and you feel an intense sense of release and joy and bliss, and some people are able to see a magnificent bright shiny star in their Thursday. As if you know, there is a star that has manifested. That has the density of thousand suns now. This as you can imagine, is not just that reduction of stress or alleviation of anxiety which are verticals along your path. This is the realization that you are not this body. You are not this meet bank that you're occupying right now you are a divine being flight. So that's good but somehow the yogis realized that you cannot jump street to that level or at least normal people would find it hard to jump straight do an advanced level, which is why they came up with an eight step blend of self realization we discard a tongue up our sh- means it. Dunga means limp in Sanskrit you see the Yogis will methodical very systematic and one can argue that they were very scientific as well in approach to self realization and self healing and guess what the meditation practice that brought you and me were trying so hard to do is step number seven. Out of eight steps, which card dion. So it's like attempting to go into seventh grade of school without really going through preschool second grade and third grade. You gotta go step by step they've advised. So Deanna means uninterrupted flow of concentration. When Yoda, able to effortlessly quiet in your mind and let go of all your thoughts in this my friend can be hard without a lot of practice but the yogis realized something realized the interconnectedness of our being. Disconnected with our senses, our senses are connected to our breath are breath is connected to our physical body and so on and so forth controlling your subtle thoughts might be hard but what you can attempt to control is how you who your body and that's where they began but even before starting their physical practice realized that Yoga is a very sacred and divine practice. So step number one out of this eight Ford Baath. Yama Yup. Deals with one's ethical standards and sense of
One nation, under gods? Indias divisive temple
"Off. Today India's Prime Minister Narendra. Modi. Traveled to the northeastern city of yoga which was hung with saffron flags and more than one hundred, thousand jobs. He came to lay the first stone of temple to Rahm incarnation of the Hindu God vishnu with believed was born in the city. This isn't the standard fare of a politician pressing the flesh for a photo op. It fulfils a promise Mr Moody made as a young politician to return to iota only when construction on a new temple began. Key. Speech at the dedication broadcast into the whole country he said the temple would be a symbol of unity that the weight of centuries and today. Agreement nation. Idea A symbol of unity. It is not the weight of centuries as Mr Moody and his BJP party see it goes back to the founding of a mosque on the site that was razed to the ground nearly thirty years ago. When we're talking about a Yoda today, we're talking about a very specific place just a couple of acres off the center of town where there was a great big mosque built in the sixteenth century and destroyed by Hindu activists in nineteen ninety-two. Alex. TREBEK's is the economists India correspondent based in Delhi the site of that former mosque is what's under contention? It's been the most controversial. Acre. In all of India. Ever since and the question is whether or not Hindus may bill the temple to Rahm right there and so how did things progressive since nineteen ninety two when the the mosque was destroyed how does that end up as a temple concentration today? It's been a terribly. Tortuous story through the courts after decades of legal stasis and very bizarre humiliation the supreme. Court. Last November, few months after Narendra Modi Wins, wapping reelection decides that the most crucial part of the ground ought to be given to the Hindus go ahead and build the temple that you've been clamoring for these decades. The court noted that the demolition of the mosque illegal in sort of compensation that no one appreciated very much allocated several acres of idle land outside the town to Muslims. In effect, the court just gave the Hindus white they had wanted and I mean the Hindu nationalists, the very groups that had clamored for the destruction of the mosque and eighty is a ninety S. And so what precisely is happening today then so today is the last of three days of the ceremony. Put. In which people most notably the prime minister are doing various prayers, offering ritual sacrifices, and so on. Around the site itself most spectacularly in the middle of all the Prime Minister Narendra. Modi ritually lifted into place the forty kilograms silver brick, which serves as temples foundation stone. Now it's consecrated and all its left is to keep on raising money and build the actual structure itself and what's the reaction been from Muslims about this this contentious building. You know in a way Muslims and everyone cares about civil rights and the secular foundation of India knows what to say no. One's happy about it. firebrand Muslim leader in Parliament Assadi. Noisy has criticized the prime minister going to a religious event and it's indeed striking that the prime minister should be there on the temple grounds with a bunch of priests and Politicos all mixed in as if they were a single class, it's shocking if you've been sleeping under a rock as India's changed in recent years and in fact, I was Struck that there have been no mass protests by Muslim groups either after the Supreme Court's decision last November nor today it doesn't mean they're happy about it. But at this point, the thing to protest, we talked a lot about Narendra Modi's brand of Hindu nationalism I. Guess This is kind of a pinnacle. Then for his aims I mean what? What does this mean for him and his party it is a pinnacle of sorts but I think it's more important to look at this as the end of a long first stage of Hindu nationalism. Movement. In India. We're looking at something more like a capstone than a foundation stone and at the same time this date August fifth was chosen for quite obvious reason. It's the first anniversary of this government very bold move to strip the state of jump in Kashmir India's only Muslim state a year ago of its status as a state and rule it directly from Delhi that was one of the main three goals that the Hindu nationalist movement had till. Now now, the third of those goals creating a uniform civil code that would bind. Muslim family law into line with Hindu and secular family law governs most of the rest of India is a less inspiring goal and it's been half accomplished. Already what Mr Moody is going to need in future is another another series of rallying cries like build the temple and where he's GonNa find them it's just not obvious at this point. So today's ceremony is is not a cause for for great triumph. This is this is not the the the end of this long road for the Jay he's hindu-nationalist goals and therefore mission accomplished. This is a triumph. Yes. By all rights Mr, Modi a good one to be taking the victory lap for his party is ideologically movement but that's also very backwards looking Mr Moody was elected with a terrific share of the parliamentary seats in two thousand fourteen in the first place. Because of these hindu-nationalist goals which attracted the devotion of his base, but because Indians were eager for change for economic development and good technocratic governance of a sort that he seemed specially poised to offer, there are various reforms for which he and his government can claim credit over the past six years. But there are many many more disappointments and in particular over the past two years say before the covid nineteen pandemic and then much much worse since it's begun, India's facing an economic crisis, it's every indicator is worse than they've been in a generation. So there's GonNa be a very strongly felt need. A week the opposition to come up with some way of rallying the country some nationalistic theme or series of themes to distract from the sort of impasse in India finds itself had economically this Hindu. Nationalist ideology offers no guidance towards what India's trade policy ought to be say or how environmental law to be fixed or scrapped. They've got a steady ideology, but it's not tacked onto any particular policies at this point i. think that the government we have in place right now strong government but in dark turbulent times is going to be almost desperate to find something to replace the impetus with. Altogether, though these changes that have already gone through, do you think it chips away at the basis of modern India's government? The the idea that religion shouldn't be a part of it. Yeah I think that India as we know it maybe as an idea we almost to retire Mahatma? Gandhi. Still on on every currency note but this is not Ghandi's India anymore you might almost say that the the anti-secularist of one it's now very ordinary to see symbols of state power mixed with. Symbols of sectarian dominance over the hindu-majority expressing itself often revanchist terms, which is why this template a Yoda really does. Alex thanks very much for joining US Jason. Thanks very much.
Augustines Teenage Coauthor
"In three eighty, nine Augustine Co wrote a book called it the teacher. The title comes from a Text Matthew Chapter Twenty three verse. Ten. which reads for you have one instructor or one teacher. Christ. Augusta and said, this book discusses and inquires and discovers that there is no teacher who teaches men knowledge accept God. As, written in the Gospel and he quotes Matthew Chapter Twenty, three ten of course that is very significant the title of the Book and where it came from it's also significant that this book was written in three eighty nine. It was just three years after Agustin's conversion you remember his story, he leaves Hippo there north. Africa goes up to Rome goes to Milan is literally running away from God like Jona or the Prodigal son. But God catches him. In fact, God has been directing him and directing every step of his path straight to him and in three eighty, six in. Milan. He was converted and three, eighty eight he leaves Rome, and heads back to Carthage, and then onto the gassed and hippo in North Africa, and there he will serve for the rest of his life as bishop. But this is in three, eighty nine. It is early in his Christian time. So the title is significant the date is significant but what is really significant is that Augusta had a CO author for this book and this was not just any CO author. It was a teenager sixteen year old came along to help Augusta and write this book. And was not does any sixteen year old? It was his son at data's the teacher is a dialogue, a dialogue between father and son the father. Augusta and the Sun Addio data's his son's name literally means a gift from God dot to means Gift Day Oh of course God and awe is the preposition that means from. He too was converted right at the same time Augustine was, and they were also baptized by Ambrose there in Milan and audio Dada was baptized as he was turning fifteen he went with his father back to Carthage, and then in three eighty nine, they wrote this book together in the confessions. This is what Augusta says of it. There is a book of mine called the teacher which consists of a dialogue between Avocados and myself, and now Augustine who in the confessions rights most directly to God, and so he says, you know addressing God let all the ideas expressed by the second speaker in the discussion his. Although he was only sixteen when it took place and I learned for myself that he had many other talents, even more remarkable than this, his intelligence left me spellbound and who but you who but you? Could work such wonders is so here's a guston singing. The praises of his son at your data, and as they wrote this book together well in the Book Augusta. Talks about how we use words to communicate words are symbols, their signs, they signify things. Patio donnas comes to realize that words put us on the alert they make us ready to learn. But ultimately, the words we used to learn ultimately all that is sourced in God in Christ is our teacher well, then conclusion Augustine says this to no end to love him and his to know and to love God is the blessed life which all proclaimed that they are seeking but few have the joy of really finding that is to say all want the good life but only few find it. And that was Agustin's hope for his son Avocados. Well, sad to say that a year after this book, his son at Yoda's died in Augusta who was very sorrowful from this could at least take comfort in the fact that his son died in Christ and so a Guston was confident. His son Bodice was with God.

Microsoft Said to Be in Talks to Buy TikTok, as Trump Weighs Curtailing App
"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.
Star Wars the Clone Wars
"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.

This is so fun to think about generational differences, and so on in America and what we call a baby boomer and you got in America people in their twenties and thirties or generate millennials do the Dutch look at generations in certain ways like that? Also? Yes, exactly the same we have baby. boomers are parents are a baby, boomers, and yeah, we're millennials, so millennials people in their twenties and thirties, gen-x people in their forties, baby boomers people in their fifties and sixties, baby boomers, being the most interesting and fun, loving and entertaining. Okay so tell me about the characteristics of millennials. In the Netherlands. Well, it's probably very similar. we are we millennials. Because we got handed everything to us right. We always learned where you're growing up. Everything is possible everything you wanted to do and instead of creating people who are very secure. What they WANNA do were all very insecure, and we're very well like I'm going to do and like every ten years. We changed jobs and There's a lot of enterpreneurs so a lot of people who want to create their own little thing, but we're all sort of this known at were unhappy with everything because we can have everything we're unhappy. Little bit spoiled came easily old. Yes, and impatient. You want it now. Yes, and if you don't get it now, you'll go somewhere else. Yeah, we're own press. And we invented the burn out. Is! Still Alive and kicking. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Yoda angles store and her twin. WHO's one minute older? Ruby angles. Talking about millennials and when we think about having fun as tourists, we can learn a lot by having fun as millennials millennials love. It seems like in the Netherlands parties in vegetables. Yoda. What's what's an example of festival that a millennial looks forward to every year and Amsterdam? We Love, King's Day. That is one of our favorites. Once It's not we do not have as many festivals in Amsterdam anymore more dough, so I'm stem because such a busy city day try to take people away from Amsterdam, so if you want to experience the holidays like King, stay or Liberation Day It's better to go to one of the less bigger cities. Also. Just what what? What is it? You'd like to go to for one of these big. Go to Harlem, because the most I am from Harlem, so we always love Liberation Day that is in Harlem. It's known to have the biggest festival only ration- days that its fifth of May we got free from the Nazis and every year. We celebrate our freedom. It's just really fun with a lot of artists in music. Video of me. I remember the festival Yeah Amsterdam is getting so congested so touristy. I was there for a King's Day once and there's so many boats you could walk across the canal just from boat to boat. who was just solid votes in the canals, but people were certainly having a great time Ruby. Festival that you look forward to. What would it be every year? ooh I always look forward to the food festivals. There are many food festival also around to Amsterdam. And we have a shoeless that SURF SC fall in the neighborhood of Amsterdam where people go to, they have to take off their shoes and walk bare feet it. It's of course when festival Shula Festival. They have a lot of food everywhere. Fit of electro music seems okay. Let's me to one of these food festivals. Then okay. So, what kind of food would you be enjoying? You would be enjoying some Sushi macos, but also local foods like French fries. The real food festivals hundred stance. You can try a little bit of everything

"Really nice to have you back on the show. You a very early guest as I remember talking about balcony gardening. That was a long time ago. Now it's going to be two years ago but you back on the show to talk about a couple of things but the thing I wanted to talk you out. I is your lovely new book. Rebound rebuilding a life. Which is a super cover half to say props on the cover because it's very lush and leafy and this I think is caught the imagination of lots of people who given the current inserts pandemic cliche phrase here the current situation that we're in the unprecedented situation as caught people's imagination. Just tell me a little bit about the books about and how it all came about well. It certainly wasn't written with a pandemic in well. Nobody wants to log book right now. I guess called select back you know I think if the Incessantly of all the losses of the pandemic book being released in it is definitely not on that list. It came as kind of it wasn't like I wake up one day like I'm going to write a memoir. I in for the UNINITIATED. The book deals with a number of things but it essentially examines how humans go to ground times of traumatic events and Tabula NSS and I examined kind of Autho generations that have kind of discovered plants for themselves in the ways in which they do alongside this narrative of a year of my life my late twenties when the Paul. If I thought my life was taking Off The tracks and kind of turned to dust I guess and when During which discovered gardening as a means of coping really kind as a writer. I started to write about Shit. You knew six eight months a year off to the fats and eventually it kind of appeared that match she. Maybe it could be a book. `and plants for me have always been the the bronx that make themselves interesting to me. The ones that have stories not how I learn. Prompt names blunt facts. Whatever tiny amount booking got from learning the the origins stories of APLOMB and so into we've these narratives of plant stories with of my iron on. It's all about I. Guess the relative therapy. That gardening brightened. Things gave me at time when else much did really now. You are a classified as of menu. I'm not a millennial laughing comparably about the old than you tell me about being a millennial implants because a lot of cliches out there on the interwebs about individuals in their house plums but very positive that generation. How does that kind of Cliche make you feel? And is there a way to bypass that to get to the natural number of truth? About how millennials are interacting with Lance. Such a good question so I've had quite lots of people generously talk to me. About rebound they think. The whole thing about houseplants and I think that might be because of the cover. It's very kind of botanical Indoorsy plenty cover of it but it's not about hospital is about the need for the outdoors in it's about this constant searching the outdoors in nevertheless acknowledges the same many people my age Discovering houseplants was a kind of gateway to gardening widely. And there's nothing wrong with brilliant and I think I think to answer your question about how this cliches help make me feel. I mean I think it's such limited understanding. I definitely think there is a grain of truth. It's a trend and I'm sure as you investigated on your brilliant podcasts. It's a trend that For Lots of reasons is very established on brings a lot of people joy but it's also representative of a wider need to engage with the soil with the ground with growing things with Nietzsche. Because my argument that kind of making the book is the those born after nineteen eighty in grew up in subsequent years. We were the first generation to grow up with the Internet with first generation to grow up to to grow without the the lost generation throughout without the Internet's on my childhood which was one of being outside. It was also very much one of being. Sit Down this is Microsoft Windows Ninety Five. This is your game boy. This is Yoda smartphone. This is Messenger. We learnt launched using really really quickly relearned to cultivate a reliance upon instant gratification. Is it any wonder that we get to adulthood in with desperate to slow down and gardening offers the opportunity to so I think that's very interesting point? I mean I think your your windows. Ninety five was probably my Zanex eighty-one loading games on a tape player. Probably like the only person in. He's he's listening to this inexperience. Remember that experience. But
Concerns over new mothers and babies during COVID-19
"They even though they've been classified as vulnerable group. Pregnant women have so far not shown themselves to be particularly vulnerable to the extremities of coveted non team. But there's no doubt that pregnancies and births around the world have been disrupted even in Australia. Pregnant women have missed out on important appointments and support services like mother's groups and birthing classes and for women who've been suspected or tested positive for the virus pregnancy and childbirth has been traumatic Catherine Gregory reports that maternal health experts are now looking at how to prevent any long lasting impacts. These pandemic could have on new mothers and their babies look. It wasn't sure she'd get to hear these miraculous. Sounds my waters break? I was thirty one weeks and six days so we came to the hospital. Thirty seven year olds spent the night Victorian Maternity Hospital by herself. Luckily I didn't gone to live within the next morning. I recall my husband and he left in a hurry but husband never got further than the hospitals front desk. You can't come into also and you need to get checked for carbon scandal. Has He was about to enter and found he had a favor. Sorry basically like a really sorry you husbands not going to be for the lie in ways to treat you like you have carbon sorry smashed up and secluded up. And that's when Abby Real nightmare began. She was facing childbirth alone. I'm by the side. A little bit of pioneer. That asked with some high relief and will live. You can't have guests now because you might have carbon then the stock transferred into special boosting room an isolated one by that stage. They checked me. I was now ten centimeters dilated and there was going to be our pain relief at all and now husband merciful person. Sorry I started freaking out a little bit and then came be pays Yoda me.

Say I took them up to spatial. Katya and I was taken to isolation in the world so it's about three or four one of the midwives came in and she was almost in tears and I said I know you're GonNa Seiger's narrowing are it's we have the results yet. It's just I have to tell you the results come back positive until you've Corinthian Stralia. Since the pandemic began about half a dozen women who've been suspected tested positive for the virus have given birth in conditions similar to Abbey's it's brutal bought needs to protect doctors nurses and other patients from the virus overseas in countries with pandemic has been far worse the restrictions on more extreme lawyers and human rights advocates. In the United States a pushing the legally mandated. Birthing rights. Face ain't too many women even those that aren't sick.

We have had some concerning reports. Where Pediatricians Indiana technologists recommending in the case of cove in nineteen being a confirmed that the woman be separated from her baby And then there are some other things such as being excluded from water birth or not having it available at all in a hospital or not having guests in air. That are not necessarily based on strong evidence Jason's days reports are mainly coming from private hospitals. And she's heard of cases where partners aren't allowed in operating theatres for C.

"Talk to me about. It's not okay you're GonNa hate me for saying those not necessarily like a park. Orphee running move. It comes from something. Totally different called a lot of the park. Where ATHLETES TO IT Tricking martial arts flipping and stuff. Sway does Parker. There's free rental. And there's another separate thing called. Tricking tricking isn't has nothing to do with really parker athletes just like it because the headline but what but free running because you described free running and I thought that was and now there's tricks so I'm not though. Tricking is like just doing fultz with no obstacles. So they're not flipping off of anything. They're just on like spring floor on grass whereas free rookie running skateboard. Run where you're running. You're hitting this moving forward. God It's I'm glad I'm sorting all this so a corner so you did a popular nutrition community. I'm thinking this means you go up. And you're doing a full flip where you rotate over your head in a traditional flip while also twisting your body completely am I right Mrs Correct. Yes yeah yes. And it's very different from like a gymnastics faultless because the cork instead of like doing like around offer back handspring. You just run your. They're running almost in a circle. And you're taking off of one leg so your other like swings up and that's what kind of drives the rotation see you got that momentum leg that's the leg that you'd let it. Yeah you gotTa let it carry you up and over. Yep and you've got to look into working on for a long time so you've just been trying this cork over and over again you're eating it. You're eating it misses there's bumps there's fear. I mean not necessarily like I've been able to do it in the gym for a long time. Not Something I've ever done outside. What took me a long There's no it's basically mental difference like I'm not using the springs and Spring Florida. Do this move and Jim. It's just I'm on carpet somewhere where I'm comfortable so that point. It's just a mental battle. It took me a long time to be able to get there and like I just had to push myself in order to do on graft and today was just the day and I did it. And Are you like quietly celebrating? Is it an internal celebration or are you screaming her head off like well? I'm very quiet and introverted person. I wasn't like yelling. I think if I was with some of my friends I definitely would have liked e. l. like ran and jumped and stuff. But kinda like savored the moment and it was just like really satisfying. I feel like a lot of people listening to this. Are going to go sign up for per core classes. Like there's probably a lot of people who are like I have writer's block or I've been meaning to start my own podcast and I bought all the equipment and now it's been sitting under my bed or whatever it is. Who's sitting here going? I got this weird feeling that par chorus. What's going to help me break through those barriers? Yeah because he's like. Oh Yeah Parker is like I. I'd consider it therapeutic like when I need to go blossom team I call it movement therapy and it just helps clear had and it's just you and whenever you're jumping on and you just kind of with it and doing your own thing and it really helps. It's good to stay active. It's fun and a good stress relief. Do you ever watch professional wrestling like I do nope. There's this guy. He goes by the name Ricochet. He'd like this guy or you'd hate this guy he either is someone you'd be like this or you'd be like this is the type of stuff that comes out of the tricks. Click beatty community. That I just can't abide by one or the other. I love the guy. He's very impressive stuff. Yeah I mean I can appreciate it from that standpoint. Definitely a lot of this stuff like. I've seen a few like wrestling clip here and there are people doing like more Acrobat. Things like it definitely takes a lot of. There's a lot of work to get there so yeah I can appreciate respect for her. That was a very measured answer. You don't like it you roll your eyes at it but you are being respectful of me spectacle of them as athletes true or false. I roll I roll my eyes. I the only people like not like not stigmatizing like share. I don't know it's hard to say. Well I'm thinking right now Like I appreciate it from a movement sampling and like how hard it is but people who don't necessarily understand the work in time that it takes to do that are just like all look at this cool thing and they just scroll on and they don't necessarily appreciate it as much I guess but right right it's the cull surrounds it to you. Parker is like a these individual moves are like fine wines to be savored to sit in the moment and appreciate what you've noticed or what you've just done for sure now we have one minute left. Do you have any closing thoughts? You want to make sure the world. Here's you have no excuses not to try park or is one of the most accessible things. I needed a pair of shoes. You don't even need us. You can go outside barefoot. Insert Cartwheeling Rolling Yourself. Some safety rules some fifty moves and just got to get moving. Start Moving I don't think you'll regret it. I tell you where I'm staying right now. I'm looking at the back window into the art and there's like a bench probably about two feet high.

"Really teach many teenagers at the moment I'm mostly teaching like ten year olds and like you know. But how did you come to link up with a fifty eight year old woman though? She started taking guys another gym. I mean that's kind of really what it boils down to That was back when I was still like a coach teacher with my like I can say him the main guy. That like taught me everything. I know. she started coming to the gym back when I was teaching with him and up. Kind of all there is to it now. You've mentioned that you mostly teach ten year olds. Was She just in the classes with the ten year olds? Yeah so our classes are split up a little bit now so we have different age groups But back then it was like eighty nine and up. 'cause we didn't obviously we didn't really have many Teenagers back then either but we had like an advanced class. So that's morally the kids who have like a lot better skills and they're usually older so she was class because she wasn't with like seven ten and eleven year olds that are just like bouncing off. The walls fallen off fall on their face. Choose like twelve thirteen fourteen year old for a little bit more team but still running around or sometimes first of all say my first instinct and then my second instinct reaction so i. That's hilarious the idea of someone coming in and being a full on adult and taking classes with thirteen year olds while you learn how to do flips. That's amazing that's so funny and to me right now. I just want to say though when you get past that side of it. We're all of us. Want a snicker. We're initial instinct is okay. That's funny and that's where I was heading but no when I take a step back and think about it. That's so bad ass that so bad to be to be you know in the second half of your life at that point when you're when you're coming up on sixty an all fucking I'm GonNa go learn something intense and physical right before retirement age. You can turn off the part of you that self conscious about that and that's worried that people are going to judge that that's really fucking cool man. She's such a Kuwaiti. Like I saw a few months ago. Two and she's still like going at a challenging yourself and being active and like that's what I love about. Where is that anybody can do it so I can point to her? Md like what's your excuse. Yeah yeah this is why this is why I have to stop doubting myself. Yeah I gotta get down. I think about this seriously. I mean there are plenty of work outs and stuff that you can get doing at home for anybody out there listening. Who wants to get it on Park or action? There's plenty of thing they can do at home to get you ready for when the world. That's back to normal. Really there's there's lessons that you think are actually good. That are like 'cause I know jitsu actually I because I can't go to the gym. Obviously I can't imagine a worse quarantine activity than wrestling people who will sweat onto. You can't imagine anything Shaef but there are workouts that are like here's like workouts that are incorporating the muscle groups you engage with. Jujitsu or the movements. You do with to their stuff out there for Parker that you would say is actually useful. Yeah I mean just about any workout that get your body moving useful because the park was all about knowing your body knowing you limit and progressing your skills right so like if you do like ten pushups a day for however long. You're going to be stronger and that's GONNA help like it doesn't have to be anything ridiculous like if you learn a car wheel and your backyard. That's Awesome. That's good for body awareness. Now I it doesn't have to be like backflips right away. I tell you something. I'm I'm turning forty next month. I've never done a cart wheel in my life when I was a kid. I mean. Now you're telling me after a lifetime of failing at cartwheel's feeling embarrassed anytime. I tried whether I was asked in gym class or whether kids were doing them in the school yard and I was trying to keep up and just smashed down onto my neck and my back. Shame you're saying you think I could do it now. Yeah probably I mean because now you have the ability to think about it more logically and you understand more about how your body works and how the world works like what a ten year old offer to throw themselves moved me. It's GonNa work. Maybe that was the problem. Was that even as a ten year old. I was scared to throw myself thinks I was just sitting there as an anxiety. Ridden little going. This seems seems foolish. And I'm going to let my peers pile full steam ahead. I'll be reading comic books if anybody needs me way. I know how to do a little more carefully. We might need to make this happen. I don't see why not. Sounds like a blast. Okay okay I like. We got about twelve minutes left. Are there any things you want to make sure you get on record whether they are related to our core or not I mean? Don't trust the click the facebook links. That's not what park or really is fine. Some I don't even know where to start because like if you look out park where montage on Youtube you'll probably find and same thing so it just takes a little bit of digging to find something that really suits you and your style. There's definitely an an athlete out there that can inspire you no matter how old you are no matter what your body type of therapy people out there that are pushing themselves and rent a getting fresh and I think you ever think about interest in that show Ninja Warrior. I get that question so many times from kids and parents and like oh probably not. But I'll tell you from what you described that it's more about like the speed the mission getting through. It seems like Colonel. More people and not these free runners not these free daughters but actual disciplined corps. Heads feel like they would be primed and ready to be the most successful. Ninja Warrior candidates. Yeah I mean there's been plenty of parking if you're running athletes. I've tried out and they've gotten pretty far. It's just like Ninja Warrior is so obviously like a set up obstacle course like when and where training and like gyms and outside were training on flat walls and benches and stuff. We're not training in like some rolling cylinder. That's going down a hill. You know what I'm saying. It's like the obstacles aren't really like something that you encounter regularly so there's a big difference between like Mark Orange Warrior because then you're warriors very obviously like a manufactured obstacle course versus like someone who's doing far core outside being that you said people ask you this all the time after. Imagine it must be so annoying for you to talk about it in your city. So annoying no. I'm not really interested in mounting an oil drum ANA inclined polls and clinging to it as it rolls down and tries to fling me downward you must be so tired of that. No I'm seeing a shed in the backyard and seeing if I can leap onto the roof without touching the wall. I I'm just sitting here. I don't want them break a window. Yeah we have A workflow in the gym. What's worthwhile and that? While at the end and injure warrior that's like curved denture warrior stuff. Yeah we have a few things so we have quite a long chain on the Ninja Warrior. Stuff and then you immediately say you got the Ninja Warrior out okay. I'm talking about in gym like the gym is like not. Everybody has access to a gym. Right a lot of the park where people train outside But we do have a worth all emma gem and I must say it's a whole area when dad come in and they look at it and they're like Oh that's so easy and then they run face first into the wall. 'cause like Oh it looks so easy and then they have no idea what to do and like chews up the wall and I get scared and then they just have these brutal face plants or spills in front of their own. I haven't seen face plants. I've definitely seen like jammed ankles and falling there but yeah. It's it's pretty entertaining. Sometimes when you have that body build their dad who's like. Oh Yeah I'm so strong and then tries to do this and has no idea no coordination. Meanwhile be honest with me. How easy is the warped wall for you for me? It depends on your talking mentally or physically. I guess both so mentally. It took me a long time Because I try to when it was initially built and I fell and I had a lot of fear doing it but I wanna say November. I did it for the first time and like physically. It's really easy for me but like mentally. It's pretty taxing. But I was the only twelve feet. I think one of the show they fifteen. That's what it comes down to write physically continental physically conquering mental limitations. Would you say that that is? That's one of the things that as you explain it. I'm thinking Parker really relates to physically conquering mental limitations. Yeah that's that's like the best description I could probably say it's hard to describe that to somebody who is in and who doesn't like who has an active in sports and doesn't push themselves because like you really need to understand what that feeling of accomplishment like like today one of the flips. I did I did it for the first time ever on grass and like I almost cried because it was just so good. What is it like? I've been wanting it for a long time. it's called a court show.

"No you've seen these things it's when people walk down the street and they have like A. It's like a backpack on the front with a baby sticking out of it. You know what I mean got you. Yeah Yeah yeah the baby. So I had the baby bjorn on and little cow. I got cool cal hanging off my hanging off my chest and my belly and the problem with the baby. Bjorn is that his head is kind of in the line of your site so you don't have your full peripheral vision. And I was going. I was going on the staircase in my building and I kind of overstepped the step and my he'll hit the back of the step. I go yeah. I'm falling deb. Moment I got cool cal hanging off me. I'm falling down the steps. My wife is with me and I luckily decent Jujitsu and they teach you how to fall. That's the first thing they teach you is like we're just gonNA throw you around a lot so that you know how to love and not break bones because you can land right. So I managed to basically twist mid air do a break fall as we call it into Jitsu and kind of slide down hallway and the kid was laughing. He thought it was so fun. Cackling with George. Halley was terrified. I was terrified. A guy who lives in the building saw read over it was like Oh my God. Oh my God. He thought he saw tragedy. Halley later told me she goes. I've never seen you do something clumsier but then instantly also never seen you do something more graceful. That was the closest. I've ever come to our core in my life following the moment. Is that one of the early lessons though. Don't if you're falling and you're out of control you don't post with your hand because you'll break you'll you'll blow out your elbows stuff like that right. Yeah I mean that's Kinda stuff that is trying to hammer until the kids as soon as possible I don't it's. It's really hard to teach kids how to fall. Because like their their time in class will probably think falling and I'll like push them over because it's really hard to get that unpredictability and that's where it's really important to know what you're doing is no like is not knowing when you're gonNA fall so it's definitely something that I keep in mind. I try to teach them as much as I can really. I think a lot of that comes with experience. What's the goal you said? You won't parkway to be your focus. He said it's your passion. Is the goal. The goal is turn this into something. Teach real a full-on non gymnastics shared cordial out. Imagine maybe down the line. Start Your Core Jim. Are you hoping that this is your this? Is Your career path. Because it seems like one I would have to imagine that your parents are going park course cool. But you need backup. I mean probably. They haven't said that yet but that's probably what they're thinking. Well I mean like since I am in school this like that's kind of my backup plan so like once I get out of school on a degree under my belt and I'll be able to apply that somewhere because I think even if I do get some other job. I'm still going to want to be teaching. I'm still going to be training and doing flips. So I don't know the features were really uncertain right now as far as that goes but I wanna be teaching and I WANNA be jumping as long as I can if I make inbuilt by owned park origin. Then that would be the optimal outcome. But whatever comes comes like what's your degree to being. I'm studying psychology psychology. I can see that having some major applications to doing flips in the sky. Oh Yeah I definitely working with kids. Yeah definitely helped. Overcoming fears convincing people to look past their self set limitations understanding how the way people's minds work outside of the gym might be affecting the way they can perform in the gym sports psychology. General major applications. Did you pick that knowing in your guts that it might help you do the thing you really love the most? I mean not not entirely like in high school I was like I took a like a very basic enjoy college. You kind of class and I was really good at it and I really liked it and like I didn't declare my major. I like my sophomore year college so I mean I probably knew I was going to be able to apply it but I just didn't know how much I'd be able to. I dug too hard on that one. It's fair to say well I mean all the things that you say like their true so is now you're reaching lost I? I've always been impressed by this with sports. In general specifically individual sports because there is a phenomenon right where a record will be set like. Let's say track. The world record will set people. Say Well it's impossible to run that distance x amount of time and then one person eventually does it and then all of a sudden other people find out that they can do it as well where there's clearly something psychological to barriers and limitations are set but when one person pokes a hole in that all of a sudden they don't have people who assumed they could not have done that before. That person did it something very interesting. I bet there's stuff like that and bar their stuff are there moments are there watershed moments. Rigo 'cause Tony Hawk in the skating world. The right where. It's like. Nobody ever thought that was possible. He went and did it. And there's other people who do it that's psychological. Yeah and then what's crazy? Is that like? That's the standard right. 'cause like after twenty. Hanta I nine hundred. That was like what everybody was striving for you know so it's like it kind of it definitely changes the community and I think it helps everybody to push a little bit harder a little bit further. It's cool. I need something like this in my life. I need something like this in my life. To as the closest I have but at least Pourquoi you're not getting You're like getting thrashed because of choices you make that lead to disastrous falls not other people attacking you because you invite them to. Yeah what's really kind of funny about this whole thing like I'm a timing human bright real. I'm probably like five. Yeah I like five four and I weigh like Andrei Twenty five pounds soaking wet lights. Strapping Uber Athlete with rock hard. Yeah right isn't prominent pets. Like I'm definitely fit for sure but I'm not some like Gargantuan Guy who can do like fifteen foot standing jump you know so like when like however you push yourself. It's always like your own scale right so like something that might be difficult for. You might not be difficult for somebody else like yours. It's only that's really hard for me to be something really easy for other people. And that's Kinda where like the individual part comes in where it's great because like you. I could train with one of my friends and she'll be really good at something and I'll be like. Oh how do you do that? And then he can teach me and I can teach him and sat back and forth. That like really helps to motivate us on fire. I love it I love it. My Wife. My wife has a background as an aerialist type of dance on. Harnesses has really bad ass. And she has a lot of respects in that world and actually has a number of friends who worked for Cirque du Soleil. And I tell you I went and saw one of their shows in Orlando and it blew my mind and there was some stuff in there that these guys had to have been Where they did hall act where they had a fake building with open windows. These guys are running up walls to flips. They're lander trampolines and Mike Bouncing up four stories. Right through the windows or like running using the trampolines to run up a four story wall and then do like a swan dive back onto the trampoline that will it will it jaw-dropping I never forgot it. Oh yeah but it's definitely awesome to watch our thing. But just a clarification. I WANNA make so. There are definitely people in the community the community that like park or doesn't do flips only free running only free runners flips..
Groupon axes CEO and COO as company looks to mount a recovery during a crisis
"Before we get into the mailbag. Let's talk about groupon because shares of groupon are up ten percent on the news that rich Williams who's the CEO and Steve Krizner. Who's the chief operating officer are leaving immediately? Yeah and we don't really have a lot of other details other than groupon is saying both remain employed by the company. There's no comment from groupon at this point on the reason for the changes. I'm I've never been more interested in groupon I mean the the CEO and the CEO are walking out the door or are leaving those jobs immediately and the stock goes up ten percent. Well I mean you can certainly make the argument that they weren't really getting the job done right. I mean if you look at groupon usually just the fundamentals of the business. I mean we've talked about groupon ever since they went public in. What was it alphabet offered? Was it around. Three billion was it six billion dollars that they that they offered groupon back in the day. It was some unusual things I when we when we look at the state of groupon. Now I mean clearly in hindsight they should have taken that deal Because I'm Nina. Revenue is is is winding down right. I mean we're revenue growth is non-existent. It's it's It's not a profitable company. I mean there's a company that's facing a lot of challenges and so I don't really know why Management Lee's I'm sure this is probably a bit of a response do just to the greater market reaction. We've had over here Over the past several days in you know we've seen this play out before with other companies I mean. Jc Penney obviously has gone through a lot of leadership changes. And we've seen when former leader step down in new leader step in. I mean there is some enthusiasm because maybe there's a light at the end of the tunnel there I I don't know in case that's really something. Investors should expect. I do think it's really fascinating to look at so so the Aaron Cooper is going to step in as the interim CEO while the company ultimately looks for a permanency. Yoda's possible that Mr Cooper gets that job at the end of the day. But it you know he. He was awarded in. He's going to receive an award of four million restricted restricted share units For this enemy vests over over time. It four million restricted share unit. Sounds like a lot but but then you look at we're groupon stock is today at just under a dollar and well. Maybe that doesn't look is is great as it sounds On paper and I mean he's going to obviously get a salary and bonus In in an extremely challenging role in trying to figure out this company's place in our world because I think before there was maybe at least the argument the groupon possesses some brand equity that maybe a bigger network out there could exploit and benefit from. I'm not so sure that's really even the case now And so I you know I mean a market pop today. Notwithstanding not sure this really should should Make you feel any better about either owning shares or potentially owning shares. But but you know hey listen if you could certainly be wrong. I mean Mr Cooper could have a plan in place in you know. Bring MORE VALUE TO THE
Building a Company Culture for Success with AI - With Marsal Gavalda of Square
"So Marsala I know. I want to dive into sort the Competitive Advantage that can be leveraged with artificial intelligence. But from what you've told me your story of getting into a in the first place is kind of interesting so we'll step a little bit off the normal scripted and get a sense of how you got into this world. Yes things that were coming on. The podcast so Yeah so I. I come from Barcelona Catalonia. Spain right and growing up there develop an interested in languages so languages is one aspect that kind of is the part of the journey of how I ended up being a practitioner of machine learning. And if YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT CATALONIA. Catalan and their Spanish growing up. They're very curious about languages. You know how half of my classmates speak Catalan. The other half Spanish one. If you look at the history as the Roman Empire extended throughout Europe there. Were all supposed to be speaking. Latin right and yet it gave rise to Italian one place Romanian French Portuguese Spaniel these languages. Don't call so it's super interesting to see what is common across languages. For example languages have nouns verbs straight. These is how we humans perceive the roles of static objects and actions that we do but then the way in which languages put these building blocks together. That's more arbitrary right in Japanese. You put the verb at the end. So you'd say no. The girl a boo greets which incidentally is also how Yoda talks. Then in Japan you also drive on the left right. Certain things are societal conventions where whereas others are true human universal so anyway languages. He's faceting topic and then the other threat is Sort of computers technology. One day that showed up with an h eighty-five on the early home computers with a with a monochrome. Crt Screen Building Keyboard magnetic cartridge for storage thermal printer and then some manuals that really well designed and taught you how to program. So that's what got me cooking to computer science. And that's where I ended up starting as an Undergrad but they don't realize that there was these these nascent field. At the time called computational linguistics now better known as language technologies. Which is the idea that you can actually use computers to do to to process language. I'd speech Recognition Machine Translation Information Retrieval and. I joined that field right at the time that he was undergoing his huge transformation from being a rule. Dreamin sort of top down approach. How do you pars an English sentence while it has a a a noun phrase and over praise and you try to seize their an adjective. They're also how you do speech recognition. You look at a spectrogram and see that you know before close. If there's there's there's no energy and have some rules that say well frequencies are in these range than is probably a free Qatif because it's mostly white noise like for right the literally. That's how the early speech recognition systems worth of having these rules about the the four men of the vowels and how these gets represented when you look at the Spectral DOMAIN WELL. All of that was being replaced by a much more bottom up data driven approach right which is what machine learning is about and so this was really the how. I got into this area because the field of language technologies was undergoing these huge transformation from rule-based to did a data driven right and then so professionally I I work in this area of speech analytics And then also conversationally. I until I finally joined a square where we use 'em not just for natural language processing but also to understand what's happening within our platform all the payments rolled loggins cetera. I was Gonna say I mean Payment. Data's a little bit different than going about like hardcore. Nlp MODERN NLP approaches. But it sounds like obviously there's transferable skills there and you can kind of faster heels and not only that but you can also imagine that. I'm you know I'll timidly a sale is kind of a conversation between a seller and a buyer and so there's also a lot of human interaction and human elements that go into that. That's I don't think I've literally ever heard somebody say that. Like a sale is kind of like a conversation. It's like what like for E-commerce I just don't take literally anybody thinks about that. But if you can you can break it down that way in your mind and make it work. Then that's awesome. So that's how I was convinced. Join Square yeah cool. It must have worked whenever they had said so. Any who now. Now that you're there you obviously have a hard grounding in the science on you're seeing a lot of what's happening at the cutting edge of AI. Obviously squares a pretty renown firm in terms of of You know being being in the high tech domain payments is a fast moving space The theme of of this month's kind of topic is around the competitive advantage of artificial intelligence. Where can ai? Help companies pull away from their competition when you think about how a enables companies to do that. How do you like to frame it? What are the aspects of AI? Maybe the ways of applying it or or types of applications for all. I know that for you really are going to separate winners losers in a bigger way yes some. I think the best way to go about this is to start with some examples. Concrete examples from square. And then maybe we'll generalized between the two larger. Let's go ahead so in the case of We saw from the very beginning that automation and machine learning is key if you look at the sort of the landscape of credit card acceptance ten years ago which is when we started it was a very very manual process. In fact you as a small business would have to file all these paperwork and then got approved. Which was you know? A small percentage you would get these these clunky hardware for For credit card processing not only that but also the business model was going backwards. Because you would have this monthly fee regardless of whether you had any sale right so when we started developing what we're still best known for the little white reader That accepts credit cards by just connecting to your smartphone. Even though you know within these intervening years we have excuse. Really expanded the amount of product surface or the the products and services that we offer to manage small businesses from inventory management to not management with payroll taxes etc. But even starting with the little reader. There was such a huge change because then the entire experience of on boarding a was so so much much easier and then we also had obviously in order to be able to support that to have such an open platform. Were almost anybody can sign up and become a merchant and start accepting payments was also because from the very beginning. We had the mechanisms in place to watch out for bad actors. Right anytime that you deal with with money and so we had in a sense. The advantage of being kind of a tech company from the very beginning and therefore we have already sort of a mindset of data driven and machine learning which basically means that We have literally hundreds of models that analyze sort of all these actions like logging or a payment and we can flag any any sort of anomalies unsuspicious activity

Disney CEO Bob Iger Steps Aside; Bob Chapek Named New Head
"Let's move onto Disney some big news. Disney CEO BOB. Iger is stepping down as CEO but will remain executive chairman until twenty twenty one. Now Bob Chepe pack will take over. Chepe heck was the chairman of Disney parks experiences and products. He's been at Disney for a long time. Twenty seven years and we knew was going to step down. Yeah but still. This is a bit of a surprise in who the new CEO is. Yeah a lot of people thought you know be Bob. Eiger came out last year and he put something called the ride of a lifetime and he basically forecast that he was at the he was at the end of his time as CEO of Disney. The you know that he would be stepping down. It was not in the middle of the route of lifetime. This was kind of a a foreshadowing. The timing is really odd again. Given the corona virus and Disney Disney parks worldwide or about thirty percent of the revenue of the total profitability of the company. Like this is a big deal yet. A lot of people didn't realize you know the thought that the next leader from Would come maybe from Disney plus from the from the video side and they didn't they went and tapped a guy who's been at the benefit the parks. Yeah I happen to think. It's all a big conspiracy just to keep the Bob's in power feels like a snap. It feels like a snub to someone like Kevin Mayor. Who's been heading up Disney streaming service and Disney for so long has been saying streaming Disney placid future of Disney and to bring somebody in who has experienced running the parkside. The experience I've Disney is an interesting choice and the market doesn't seem to like it. But I I kind of do minus the Bob Bob thing strange but I think it's a good thing because as you said it's the parks in the experience that has been driving Disney throughout his entire history. And you don't want to put everything on streaming and ignore the extremely profitable important aspects. That is the Disney culture. That's created from experiences like parks the thing that's really interesting. And the Bob Eiger it. It's interesting to me that when Bob Eiger became the CEO. I don't know if you remember this but it was not a popular pick at all. It was not you know he was thought of as being the wrong guy coming from the wrong industry but what he has been. He's been a master capital alligator. Bought Pixar Lucasfilm's Fox Studios Marsa Marvel Marvel Tuck in acquisitions exactly exactly me transformational acquisitions. But people didn't realize you know people did not give him the credit in advance that that was what he was going to do. And I think one of the reasons that they went to the direction that they did is the thing that Bob Iger did that. People were surprised about is he really cracked the code on direct to consumer for Disney. Yeah and baby. Yoda and finally finally. We're going to see some BAYONA merchandise and other high not gonNA sell
Disney's surprise CEO departure while Baby Yoda steals Toy Fair
"Disney's down. Co but will remain as executive chairman until the end of the year while departure has been widely anticipated. The news still comes as a bit of a shocker. Since he had delayed his retirement multiple times to find a successor. We've got one now name Bob Traffic. He'll take over CEO. But before we talk about Bob. Well let's talk about the original Bob Bob Eiger and his contribution to Disneyworld big highlights free opt above for Disney. Yeah Yeah it came nowhere in the middle of the earnings call yesterday and in a way he gets to go out on top like Disney plus their streaming service launch was very successful. The photo we just round the screen he gets to go out with like a photo of him and a little baby yoga. It's Kinda hard to not get around that so so beyond beyond dizzy plus which is obviously most recent thing but there. There's been a lot of big successes credited to Bob. I go right. He's I mean he's basically bought up. Most of our childhood are marvel. Wait what was the one I well? He basically bought Lucasfilm's Fox Star Star Wars and Fox right and so he's he's cobbled together. This sort of massive Hollywood infrastructure is actually improve the park's right when I think when he started a bunch of the parks were not doing well and he was credited towards like building up. Dizzy Disneyland Hong Kong and Japan and building up Disney California venture. So like he's done a lot of the company but gotta go back to Disney plus and the mandatory which is sort of the latest thing. That's fresh in our mind. This is the fascinating juncture since on one hand like there's so much now going forward especially the Fox and there's a lot of new activity going on so it's shooting step away amidst like marvel's like Face four walls. And of course we've got Yes like he kinda ends his his tenure with like this viral sensation. Yeah and having done in the launch of Disney plus done several interviews like going over early briefs that show and overseeing that it's all sort of confusing because there were twenty months left on his extension. I believe it was. Yeah Yeah and he is. He's sticking around. My guess is he's he's focusing largely on sort of the entertainment aspects of the film studio part of the business and leading the new. Bob Chapman deal so the day to day operations as CEO and then on their hand because so much was built up it might from the consumer perspective. It might not be that noticeable because everything has been put into motion and it's just a matter of them. Disney continue to ride through their distance for the next couple of years of movie and stuff

I I'm not. I don't do it on the grill. Actually do the oven because I got a pizza stone that can really really hot and I got just a really good recipe that just as well. So Do you put the pizza? You put it on the stone right. Yeah you start in the oven. Preheat it as high as it can help and then you let it sit for like an hour let the stone warm up and then you throw the pizza on the stone. Right is the. I've never done it but hit the nail on throw that stone in there for the hottest it'll go and then let that stone heat for thirty minutes okay and then once it gets to that one little tip to make to help with the donut sticking take a little bit of cornmeal flat sprinkled Semolina.

"yoda" Discussed on Motley Fool Money
"Global Headquarters this Motley. Fool money it's the motley fool money radio show on Priscilla joining me in studio this week. Senior analyst Jason Moser and Ron Gross and from Sixteen twenty-three Capital Jeff Fisher. Good see always. Gentlemen. We've got the latest headlines from Wall Street we will dip into the full mailbag and as always we've got a few stocks on our radar but we begin with big retail. Walmart's fourth quarter profits in revenue came in a little bit lower than expected this week. Holiday Quarter Jeff. This is what we saw with targets holiday quarter in that bizarrely the video games and toys. They didn't do that well. Big Retail not big excitement though. Yeah Chris Sales were Same store sales were only up about two percent in the fourth quarter and basically for the whole year Two point eight percents sales walmart. Us so you're seeing this business which is giant. I mean Walmart has five hundred. Twenty billion in annual revenue. They're able to grow revenue by low single digits year over year. That's that's their goal. Now that's their hope But as you said Chris Retail Toys didn't do that well over the holidays. We can talk about why that might be but groceries. Tidwell ECOMMERCE did well and Overall as long as same store sales in the Green Walmart is still relevant business the performance in grocery. Because we talked before about how Walmart I don't a lot of people really make that immediate connection right. I mean it really is. I mean grocery is responsible for the half of all. Us sales and then on top of that when you see Warren Buffett's recent big investment and Kroger off interest in the grocery space. There as well I mean when you got Walmart and Kroger which are really the two leaders I think in our in our domestic space grocery wise anyway for all the weakness. Games and toys may display during the holiday season. At least they've got rosary right. Exactly I've been very impressed with what Walmart has done over the last few years but also very impressed with what target has done to turn their business and I'm wondering do I WanNa Own Walmart at twenty three times or do I wanNA target a seventeen times I might lean towards targeted in this environment. Well I would agree with you. Ron I think because as you just said Walmart Trades at twenty two point nine times. So you rounded up or maybe. The price changed while. We're talking rounded purposes twenty three times forward estimates and it's tenure averages fifteen point nine times so it's well above its tenure average shares of dropbox. The online storage company up more than twenty percent on Friday fourth quarter revenue came in a little higher than expected Jason Dropbox says they're aiming to be profitable by the end of this year. What do you think if you ever want to get? The market's attention you do. What management did in this call Three action I think that the stock today really is all about promises. Made WHICH IS FINE. But that means that they're going to have to keep them The biggest question I have in regard to dropbox remains How how many people? They're going to get to actually pay to use the services. I'm not saying it's a bad service. I just I think a lot of users at their condition to just be able to use it for free which is kind of Nice But to your point in regard to profitability. They did on the call say that they now aim to be gap profitable by the end of this year and that means just straight up profitability like a lot of these mature businesses. That we that we love so much. They also raise their long-term operating margin target to a range of twenty eight to thirty percent. That's up from twenty to twenty two percents. So that's pretty significant boost there as well and they see hitting that by twenty twenty four again. A promise made promise they're going to have to keep going back to the paid users paying users a fourteen point three million up from twelve point seven million years ago but they have six hundred million plus registered users. Which is a lot now. That sounds like that's that. Sounds like it could be a great opportunity. I mean the flip side of that coin though is that's a lot of people and I'm wondering why that growth paid user is still so slow I think part of it is. They're still trying to figure out their product landscape and pricing and that's played out a little bit on on the business model bus for top line. Growth of twenty percent is okay but I don't know that there's anything to write home about so I'm kind of on the fence with these guys Tim Byers. He likes this company a lot. Whenever Tim Talks. I definitely listen just still not quite sold on on the future though they also announced a six hundred million dollar share buyback plan. That surprised me because this is not a profitable company. It is not the biggest. But it's like nine ten billion market cap it. I'm just wondering why. Allocate the money towards share buybacks when for an unprofitable growth company. Maybe they could spend the money elsewhere. Yeah but I mean to to that point being such a young Company new to the public markets. I think a lot of times. They'll set that money. Aside in order to more or less people to help offset dilution that comes from stock based compensation one nine so. I don't think we would see any material. Impact the shares outstanding so to speak Other than to offset compensation. Yeah and it's also just an authorization it doesn't mean the actually execute and they could do it over long periods of time as well. I don't think you'll go in and see a six hundred million dollar open market purchase anytime soon. It is interesting to watch so you have six hundred million active users and you're only monitoring fraction of them. It indicates you gave away something free of charge that has decent value. And now you're trying to unlock it with actual revenue per customer. And I said that it is. I mean to that point. They're adding a new key metric for investors to follow going forward and annual recurring revenue. Which is Great? I mean a lot of these companies do base their models on this recurring revenue. It's nice to get that clarity. I think that that probably helps steer that conversation. A little bit further away from the actual number of paying users in more towards just their ability to monetize maybe upsell maybe a exercise and pricing power assists a will follow that metric going forward and and that'll certainly give us a better idea is to the health of the business and how much they're actually able to grow another strong report. From Texas roadhouse fourth quarter profits came in higher than expected. And just for you Ron. Texas roadhouse raise the dividend twenty percent. Yeah I was going to mention that it was just for me. This is a strong report. Com sales up four point four percent at company restaurants up three point. Four percent. At domestic franchise restaurants you saw margins widening on a restaurant basis and that's despite Labor and food cost pressures which all restaurants are seeing earnings per share up forty five percent but important to mention that doesn't include extra week their fifty third fifty three weeks in this in that year They continue to open stores opened up. Eleven company re restaurants including two Bubbas. Thirty three which we keep saying. We've got to make a road trip to one of these days we will And also they mentioned they. Strong start to twenty twenty with comp restaurant sales growth of six point four percent for the first seven weeks of the year. That's a really strong number actually. And their targeting Another thirty stores to open during the course of this year as you mentioned increase the dividend the seventh consecutive year of double digit growth in that dividend which now stands at one point nine percent. So Texas roadhouse is a restaurant chain that we follow for a bunch of years among other things I think can Taylor and his team have done a really good job with the restaurant count. They they never really seemed to get out ahead of themselves. They just methodically. Open a couple dozen new locations every year. Yeah it's measured growth and it's consistent concepts or sales growth to those those that's how you generate revenue growth right there and do it well. So you brought some math to the equation on Walmart and target and how relatively pricey both of those stocks are what about. Texas ROADHOUSE IS. This is a company that's performed really well for a long time. Yeah the last year not as strong as an really in the past maybe up only about thirteen percent over the last year Soccer is about twenty four times forward earnings if you look at the average of restaurants it's about twenty five times so in line but folks like dominoes and aaa actually increased that average. If you look at the median. It's more like twenty one times Indicating maybe a little bit pricey coming up. We've got pizza and beer. So what more could you possibly want stare at here?

Fourth QUARTER RESULTS FOR STAMPS DOT COM or better than expected. How much better? So good that. Shares OF STAMPS DOT COM. Were up sixty five percent Thursday. What is this Jeff? Stamps DOT COM has been one of the most volatile stocks in the past twelve months. Exactly twelve months ago. They announced that they were ending their exclusive partnership with the US Postal Service. Which which sounds great but it actually it. Didn't I mean it sounds great that hey we have an exclusive partnership but what that meant is that they couldn't sell to other couldn't find partnerships with Amazon Fedex or so forth and so they knew long-term thinking long term. We have to. We can't be just working with one partner the others so they shut that down. The stock lost about three quarters of its value last year and now it fell. All the way to the thirties outs jumped all the way back up to one sixty. If that doesn't hurt everyone listening hasn't bought it. That hurts. So what a great recovery. But it's still just getting back to where it was. Prior so short story is results are better than than were feared and they still have a relationship with the US Postal Service. It's just no longer exclusive. How much of this pop was Shortsellers sort of covering their short. I have to assume it was some percentage because I know that one of my thoughts last year when they announced. Hey we're we're breaking up with the. Us Postal Service. One of my thoughts was. There's a chance I'm not betting on it. But there's a chance they completely got business. There was a chance And I think that's why the stock was so volatile and that's why it's responding so much to the upside now. They signed a relationship. A new partnership with Ups in November. And the reason I think the sock pop so much. Sixty five percent is the earnings per share. That reported for the quarter was two dollars and twelve cents and that was against the ninety three cents estimates so more than double the estimate so everyone has to adjust their models gwen forward. They also said they expect revenue to grow this year a little bit. But that's so much better than what's feared so that all said Chris now that the stock has run back up. It's at thirty six times expected earnings. So it's it's no longer cheap looking Boston. Beer sold one and a quarter billion dollars worth of liquid in the fourth quarter but earnings came in lower than expected shares of Boston. Beer down a little bit. Jason we've seen the maybe struggle is too strong a word but I'm gonNA use it anyway. We've seen the struggles with SAM. Adams is sort of the the best known brand that Boston. Beer has but Over the past year or so. They've really done well with hard seltzer. Yeah I mean this is really does feel like Boston beer is becoming less and less a beer company. And and maybe that's not such a bad thing. Because this quarter's results was not thanks to Boston beer and it was not thanks to Samuel Adams. It was thanks to Seltzer primarily. And and that's okay but if you look at depletion which is the that represents the sales from distributors to retailers. I mean you just a few years ago. We were talking about these depletion of negative eight percent..

The Only 3 Ways You Can Differentiate and Compete
"I WANNA start by saying that I've come up with these. Three ways is just through my own experiences in business. Our Business Webinar Jar. Webinar software competes in a very busy market with some big players competitors veterans like zoom and go to Webinar have literally millions of users. How do I get a slice of that Pie? This is a question I had to force myself to ask. And it really just boils boils down to three ways a differentiation. Let's start with the first one and that's Nishi down. Whatever your product? Whatever your service you can serve lots of different markets but if you focus on one market on one group of people you become their choice because you've built a product of service and experience around their needs simple? You want to start a software business that helps go build their websites like like a website builder instead of building a website builder for anybody who needs a website. Let's say you focus on photographers and videography hours and your Website builders really cater to that market. These customers have unique needs and the certain things. They don't need that they don't WanNa be confused by so he become the website builder for photographers. Viagra offers all the videography in photographers. That are using something else can move over to you because you serve them directly. Let me give you another author example. A real world example CANVAS CANVAS DOT COM is a cloud based graphic design tool. It's incredibly popular. But it's a niche product. Product is canvas more powerful in feature rich than Adobe Photoshop Note. It's not it's a fraction of what photoshop can do but not everybody. It needs photoshop professional graphic designers. They need photoshop. And they're gonNA use Adobe Photoshop and they're a ideal customer for adobe before before people that are just trying to print a flyer for their book club or for Garage Sale. They don't need photoshop. They need something simple. Easy to use with limited limited features. So they don't get confused and this is where canvas comes in. Canada actually provides a product that's limited and they kind of force their market by saying. Hey we're for people that are trying to just easily design something in a few minutes without a graphic design degree this means they are excluding the professionals bunching down. They speak directly to people that they serve that their product release four so the first way of differentiating is initiating to a group of people in your larger marketplace. The segue differentiate is implementation. And I believe this is the most powerful way differentiate. It's what makes the biggest difference. The most popular example of this is facebook okay. FACEBOOK is not the first social media platform there was my space friendster but facebook implemented it in a way that made it easier. The concept is the same but their implementation was different and therefore they were easily able to differentiate themselves and stand out. There was a period of time where friendster and my space had more features. So it's not about feature sets but but it's more like hey they figured out a way to make social media work and the implement of the I did differently. Here's another real world example in the automobile industry before four. Tesla if you were conscious of the environment and you're a green customer you would buy at Iota Prius to Yoda's implementation to serve. This customer was to create a hybrid vehicle to compact car. It's not really a performance driven. It's not very fast as not really great to handle. It's not a great drive is not luxuriance but it was a symbol. If you drove that car it was a statement. I care about the environment. That's why Leonardo DiCaprio drove Prius until Tesla came around and Tessa Tesla said. Hey we want to serve this market. The people that care about the environment that want to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. But we don't want to sacrifice style or speed or comfort or luxury. We're going to implement this idea differently. It's GonNa be a little bit more expensive but we believe people are going to buy it and enjoy our implementation of this idea. More more than Toyota and history speaks for itself. Leonardo di caprio drives Tesla now. But the point here is that they decided to implement this idea differently with your product. Doc with your service how you implementing your solution differently in a way that adds value with us with women are Ninja. There's a lot of different webinars offers. There was a different ways that you can create you know meetings and do mastermind calls. There's so many ways you could do this. Coaching calls why US while our implementation tation is quite different from everybody else. We actually really focus on ease of use a great experience in terms of building the Webinar an incredible quality. So this is how we want to really implement this idea. We understand if our users find easy to use. They're going to continue to use is it and they're gonNA use it more often and therefore they'll be long-term customers so we're attracting people that say. Hey I love doing webinars but I don't want another headache right. We actually have a testimony L. A. quote a message came from one of our users said I love with an tried other platforms but I said No. Because they're overly complicated. I need a Webinar service. Not another headache. And that's exactly who we attract all right number three. The Third Way to friendship is service. This is a game changer. When when you understand this you understand this is really a way for you to Propel Your Business your competition can copy you? They can copy your features then copier pricing model hectic and copier sales copy. And even your branding but the one thing they can't copy is your service how you treat your customers before before during and after the sale the customer service experience the whole experience of being customer the emails you send now the chats you have the live webinars. You do all that kind of stuff. That interaction you have with your audience with your customer makes the difference. Okay this is something that we tripled down on on an ARP business for the last three years and it's paid off and now when we look at our customer surveys. The number one reason why people love women are inches because one. It's easy to use to who the customer service if you're a small business. This is a great way for you to get a leg up on the bigger businesses larger companies. It's hard to regularly great service. They have large customer service teams and sometimes things become impersonal. But if you're a small team in your managing tickets yourself or you have a small team running customer service you could still train them and be very friendly and very very personal and helpful and be available in human. Our biggest challenges oranges as we grow the business. How do we maintain that to make sure our customer service never suffers because it's one of our biggest differentiator so you could differentiate with the your service the way you treat your customers throughout the buying journey pass Their purchase when they buy the next product with the Knicks Service. So the next you you know a thing that you offer them so they have niche implementation service. Those are the three

"Every major brand is on instagram posting photos or graphics promoting the lifestyle. They hope you and me will believe we'll have love if we buy whatever it is. They're selling but pay close attention and you'll notice that quite a few posts really don't have much to do with any particular product. The latest trend in advertising is reposting jokes and memes just like regular people rather than businesses do on social media. Amanda Mall Rights for the Atlantic. Her latest piece is called me. Fever goes corporate. Welcome Amanda Thank you for having me you say memes thievery. But isn't the whole point of memes that they are sharable and they're supposed to go viral. So how can they be stolen. Well memes are are you know they have. They have various different purposes They're intended to entertain someone's followers or their friends and and because of the nature of social media often. Those things get repurpose by other people. And I think usually people are fine with others using their memes if they just want to show their friends something funny. It's a little bit different when somebody who's making money off of off of posting memes starts collecting those and using seeing them For their own purposes in their own financial gain. Can you give me a couple of examples of these memes that you say corporations have usurped. Yes mostly these are just jokes. People tell that then become popular on twitter or facebook or something like that drunk elephant which is a skincare the brand is sold at Sephora. One of the ones that they recently posted was. I missed the nineties when bread was good for you not pot a brand of CBD supplements since one of their recent ones was therapist. Expensive a box of hair dye seven dollars two things. Yes and those are sort of like optimized my est to be liked to be commented on to be shared as things then go out as representatives of these brands now you spoke with one stand up. Comedian Kelly Kelly. Colette Drunk Elephant. The Skin Care Company used one of her jokes. How did she feel about it Her feelings were sort of mixed which I think is often indicative of how people feel in general when they find out that a brand that makes things they like His used one of their jokes in their advertising but then the more she thought about it she was sort of irritated that the company who pays copywriters to to write captions and write Jokes for social media and for for their website had taken one of hers and then used it to sort of entertain their own followers for their own gain In because Sushi is a person who writes jokes for a living having something like that. Just sort of swiped by a big brand I think Estan particularly but brand stealing ideas from the public and particularly social media. It's not a new thing. I mean I'm thinking back to the eyebrows on fleet scandal handle Yes eyebrows on flake was several years ago when a teenager named Peach who goes by the name Peaches Monroe made a funny the video. About how great. Her eyebrows looked the phrase eyebrows on fleet sort of spread like wildfire across the Internet That included a lot of just regular regular people using it to capture their own selfish or just for fun but also included a lot of makeup brands to so. This isn't new but it's it's particularly bold to simply swipe somebody's tweet and reformatted as your own instagram post with minimal credit if any does does it work though I think experts are sort of split on that And it depends on what you mean by work if you're just looking for social media metrics if you're looking to see how much somebody has interacted with your posts. How many times they've been shared then on a certain level if you just want those short-term statistics in order to please your bosses or please your investors it does work in the best cases that means hiring young people and hiring comedy writers to create? You know funny captions or to write funny scripts for videos that they put on Youtube in other cases that means you know sort of outright stealing the work of unsuspecting social media users and not even asking for permission let alone paying anybody for the work. They've done Amanda Mall is a staff writer at the Atlantic.

But there's a range depending on whether you're using led's or incandescent lights and where you live running those lights will cost you just under fourteen dollars. lers in Louisiana in Hawaii more than forty six dollars but it's worth it for the holiday.

The latest star wars film the rise of Skywalker opened over the weekend and made more within a hundred and seventy seven million dollars in North America alone. This installment brings the latest trilogy to close but the Star Wars Franchise Continues News on the Streaming Service Disney plus where a new character is capturing viewers imaginations but Disney kept an unusual lid on the merchandising bonanza. We usually see for hit characters. Marketplace's Nova Sappho has more on that Disney plus is an important part of Disney's plans to more directly interact with the consumers of its content at a public forum earlier this year. Disney CEO Bob Iger summarize the strategy so if someone has bought Disney plus we know that they're huge star wars fan. We may be able to figure out how to give them discounts on buying star wars goods or visit Galaxy's edge at Disneyland or Disneyworld those sorts of things so that kind of targeting is the goal how to explain the way Disney pluses new series. The man delorean rolled out a popular new character actor. The show dropped last month and quickly became among the most downloaded on any streaming service. That's due no small part to the surprise introduction of a new character actor the child as it's known on the show baby Yoda as it's known everywhere else. They said fifty years old age differently. Many centuries the child does little more than coup and adorable. Even when it's eating life frogs. Yeah it really does that. It's quickly become a pop culture phenomenon even the New Yorker created a cartoon about the little tyke but in a very undesired move the company introduced baby yoga with not toys ready for the Christmas shopping season. Nothing was on store shelves and only recently. Could you buy some baby. Yoda stuff on Disney's online store. Stephanie whistling a consumer products analyst at Jefferies says this is strategy using its ability to withhold information from the broader marketplace to create excitement and then working with their partners there after to ensure that there's a merchandise assortment that satisfies that excitement in fact. The men delorean's Creator Jon. Favreau has said that he wanted to keep baby. Yoda's existence a secret until the big reveal. Since creating toys takes months of Advanced Prototyping Ping word could have leaked out so now toy makers will need time to catch up. So what we've seen in the marketplace is that type of product will arrive at retail in arch April and May of next year based on how the supply chain works even basic merchandise like clothing printed with baby. Yoda's image didn't come out right away. Hey and that left an opening for unofficial merchandise on Oetzi alone. You can buy baby. Yoda Crochet dolls tree ornaments. t-shirts Super Karar. Who owns the toronto-based custom clothing company printed is selling a baby yoga Ugly Christmas sweater for thirty five bucks is doing a lot better than we re. He intended to be honest. I we never thought that it would get as popular as it dead. Br are says they've sold hundreds of sweaters in just a week and a half for his two year old business. It's been a financial boost. No products ever been this popular and we've kind of goes on working around the clock to make sure all the orders go out on time. Berar is surprised. Is that Disney left such an opening merchandising baby yoga. It's an opening that retail consultant Bryan. Eisenberg does not expect to last long Disney was a client several years ago they create stories to create experiences to create retail revenue. There a master at sucking money out of people's pockets now on Disney's online line store you can get official baby. Yoda t-shirts phone cases bobbleheads. But you have to preorder the baby.

"For those celebrating tomorrow. Christmas can be a time for celebration. Listen but it can also create a lot of waste in the UK. There's about thirty percent more garbage around the holiday compared to other times of year including around six million trees that get trashed after Christmas and enough wrapping paper to reach the Moon but consumers are increasingly demanding more more sustainable ways of doing things and businesses are stepping up the BBC's Elizabeth hotson reports November and December. The busiest months of the year. Eh Alistair looking and his wife who ran live a Christmas tree in Leicestershire they started growing festivals in the fields near the house in two thousand thirteen and and two years later decided to let customers higher Christmas trees as explained when I visited their farm on a cold crisp day the trees. He's that we grow here are grown in containers. So that means that the route that comes with the tree is contained with it so when we did get up they will actually have a higher chance of growing and living living after Christmas. Here's an idea. We had been on holiday to actually make something more sustainable more environmentally friendly. How does it work? Take me through the process so you the order online online or you common visitors because picking Christmas as a personal thing particularly actually same tree year after year which it's possible with renting system with n dig that trio real hockey j. into sustainable netting which is made of potato starch and then that is actually deliver to you. You have over Christmas we pick it up again in the first week of January. From what you've said. It seems to be a win-win around for the environment for your fee customers. Why do you think they're say a few businesses that do this is not a demand you can have the best prompt in the world people not going to buy it but because the demand is there now and we're an early adopter along with a couple level those than we believe that this market will grow very rapidly? The feedback we're getting from customers is that they love the having a real live Christmas tree and something which they've had won the children. The Knicks Nostalgia and they want future generations to have. We've got some interesting stories of last couple of years. A family got Christmas tree. I wanted to see which grew mole. Aw this year the Sun Christmas tree renting a real Christmas tree from south costs around fifty dollars. Here it's more than double that amount to buy and the trees freeze ended up being thrown away but the rent etry market isn't without risks the mock so small at the moment that companies involved usually take the hit on the cost of the tree. Free if it's damaged in any way said now you've got to tree. What type of sustainable presence can you put under it at? The recent spirit of Christmas are in Linden even many of the stall holders were promoting their environmental credentials. One of these was Jamie Griffiths. Whose company makes bags from recycled boat sales infant? There's one of your medium sized bikes eight's a bright pink Flamingo Design on it and it looks quite sturdy. It's all made from recycled. Sales is Scott seining canvas on the bottom on the ends to give it more. Steadiness and go sailing zips which they lost in the very strong sales from some people throw away. Sales wants to sal is ripped a charter. Can't use them and you can't fix it for the owner of the sale so therefore it often goes to skip we intercept that and robin goes to landfill. We basically re purposed sales into bags. We have a range of weekend bags to backgammon sets. Now that we found the tree and a gift it's time for some wrapping environmentalists. Say it's best to avoid plastic covet or shiny foil wrapping paper as what is glitter made from plastic overall having a more sustainable. Christmas will require more effort from consumers but it does add up to a positive result and increasingly climate conscious world in London. I'm the BBC's Elizabeth Hotson for marketplace.

"Fact. I just wanted to throw in here before we move on Lego Yoda his. Many was the first of their figures to be shorter than the the other toys in the Lego Star Wars. So how small is baby. YODA GONNA be. I personally. Love the fact that Disney listened to Jon favreau about not having merchandise because obviously that would have spoiled the baby. Yoda stuff and I know everyone was like well. It's just coming out in time for the holidays Mike. But it's not though because in order for that to happen they would have had to have those cells like makeup characters the models all of that takes months. So you're not going to see baby. Yoga merchantable twenty twenty mashed that link for the funk pop in May of next year so it costs Disney two point seven million with no baby. Yoda products products available for the holiday season. Next no problem. They'll make back the price they paid for Lucasfilm Eh Josephine talk a little bit about clone wars. Yoda specifically yeah so the clone you spend a lot of time more time with the jet. I and particularly the council in individual episodes with Iota being a wise leader in having a little bit more of a sense of humor because that is a part of his character but at at the end of the clone wars. There's going to be a new season coming out in February on Disney plus a final season the clone wars. But in what is right now. The last season of the clone wars yielded starts hearing the voice of Quite Gone Jin the jet I played by Liam Neeson from Phantom menace in lucid. Always meant to tell this story in the movies but he basically League tells the story of how some jet I can retain their existence within the force in appears force ghosts four spirits so sometimes people like haunt you come back and be a ghost like this arc of Yoda's like no or like Mace Windu like Mace Windu didn't do the training Long Story Short Quite gone was very interested in this idea that if you are doing so for a selfless reason you could retain your existence within the force because the idea is everybody passes into the forest where all part of the force we always will be. But you're not aware that. Hey this is who I was and I can talk to people that so quite gone kind of half figure this out he. It comes to Iota and says I have this additional train for you to do you have to kind of face your dark self. You have to face the possibility that you made some mistakes you have to face your fear of the the future and through all this training you will eventually learn to become one with the forest but still retain your your identity and Obi Wan learns from quite gone as well. Meditating on tattooing. So that's why in the original star wars movie when obi-wan-kenobi disappears. He doesn't get cut in half by vader he disappears in later. He appears as force beard. And when you had a dies in Richmond the Jedi he disappears and when Luke Dies and last Jedi he disappears in a lot of this might be a little bit more relevant relevant to rise of skywalker because a lot of people think there's going to be a four spirit party. Yeah so people are watching like. Why didn't my random favorite jedi combines Yoga Arkan at that wisdom the inexperienced that you need in particular idea that you need to have like a self release reason to reclaim your yeah? You can't just be like I just want. I like being me. I don't WanNa stop in the ideas. They learned this so they could help. Pe- Luke Finish his journey. And and that's why Yoda's showing to Luke in the last Jedi because that's kind of the point of continuing to have your identity within the force is to be able to help people several several things that we're going to get a force ghost lou clear. I mean that's almost incense Mark Hamilton. The cast okay but also Other force goes possibly Laya. You mean because she's Shaikh them she could have trained. We don't know but like we know that quite gone on in Theory Liam Neeson in theory could appear obi-wan-kenobi. They got some world to do on that. But what you mean because this is the last one of this chapter there might be yes. Yeah Yeah Yeah in in theory because Anikin pops up right at the end of return of the Jedi. His four spirit appears to luke so like everybody's everybody's the locks are dancing everybody's partying in Luke kind of looks off in the distance. And he sees OBI WAN is a spirit. He sees Yoda and then he sees his father join him So that suggests that Anikin has somehow learned to retain his existence. So then that you're going like I bet anikin would maybe have some things to say about but What his grandsons? Choices are right so there's a possibility of of that as well. Also Force Awakens. I was such a troll and I just kept calling her race skywalker have yet to see voltron. I love just being Agile Award. So between those between clone wars and rebels are those two like beloved property. I feel like I'm not as in the I'm in the General Fan base. But I'm not like you know it was hard core is you are do are both of those shows which are both animated Are they both beloved the same. Do you feel like the fan base kind of latches. She's on one more than the other. I think they're pretty even okay. Yeah in so clone wars Lucas. Who just sort of like I didn't get to do all the stories I WANNA do? I WANNA play Any higher this a young person prison is his kind of a paddle on Learner Baloney so the clone wars are some great stuff because George Lucas. Let's say like I have an idea in phony would kind of execute it. So it's kind of the best of of both worlds and then when Disney took over in they wanted the new animates Floaty ran rebels. So there's a real connection mandatory and he's unhealthy command alluring as well. Yeah so there's a real liked the star wars lore of. There's always a wise master who passes on knowledge the young person but then it's the young generations Turn to pick up the mantle like that has literally happened in real life with George Lucas. An end date phony. What about iota and rebels calls? Yeah he pops up a think at least once maybe twice a in. There's some interesting stuff there because Yoda admits one of the big things is he. He admits that he made some mistakes. In the in the PREQUEL era that he led his fear control. Them is a big thing in star wars that fears the path to the dark side and other great kind on a self help thing from Star Wars that as soon as you are afraid of losing something then that makes you angry and hateful and all those kinds of things so that's a a big part of his cannon at that is kind of place where he fully admits that he made some mistakes. We actually have a quote from him here from rebels. It says I lost my way for a long time time but now I have an opportunity to change things and then he finishes with a last chance Say I was just like what you're saying. Yeah yeah any. And he guides Ezra a little bit in guides him to his destiny that he has a specific destiny and he sort of implies that it's okay to fight but you need to figure out how to fight in win to fight so a lot of lot of continuing great iota wisdom but he's not in rebels a ton. There's one or two pop ups. Uh If you want fun gifts if you're sitting around going how should I communicate with France. There's so many great iota gifts that express disappointment exasperation wanting owning to go somewhere quickly. One of my favorite YODA gifts. There's a moment invented the seth when he's GonNa have confront palpitation he walks in and he does just a little hand gesture in to guard slam into the wall of my guys. I'm going to handle this. I think I gave. I gave one of my ex is like a yodeling. Ed Valentine said like Iota Best Valentines or something and now we're broken up these things. My Dad Humor. Uh We talked. We kind of touched on Warner Werner Herzog and it said that upon Abban seen baby. Yoda He forgot he was holding a puppet and began doing baby speak as puppet had a saw video of that. I really want all the alarm hertzog scenes audio of the cowards common. I need that in my life. His baby coups. Did you see that. Someone tweeted like the combination of a combination of animals. And I think there's an actual voice being manipulated in that whole mix so this tweet is from Matthew would would it says maybe Yoda's voice by combination of baby samples bat eared foxes. No one knew King Ca Jews and the sound design vocal talents of Dave accord. ps He also voiced baby. wrote the lead for the clone wars. Yeah that's the Hud's child well and I saw the Baby Java or whatever did you see that yeah that someone did of because it was like baby like like. Oh No it's like oh shoot. Who Else Star? We should have a baby kind of thing. Yeah Yeah but they there is. It's the movie that kicks off. The whole series is Got A lot lot of quality time with job as maybe rod of the Hut. Let Can I ask you a question. Why so why does baby yo to speak? Hugh is it just the absolute just intrinsic. cuteness that you want to cuddle in take care of the baby you know. I follow a lot of baby animals on instagram. So yes I mean I'm going to be. I follow a baby pig. I Follow Baby Fox. Follow juniper the fog shutout everyone else that follows juniper I have my baby molly. I think that he has this animal quality right to and also like kind of baby like he's like a baby human hybrid you know. Yeah Yeah like just enough human qualities and movement but also very much like a cute little animal and The cooing guy and his dumb little teeth. I love that shot his little tybee back there. I think he's just so innocent and he's like yeah he's strong but like so innocent and just like calls to be protected and brings out like it's almost like he's a test himself like he's like you know what I mean like attest to like like the true your human nature like if you're like you said with Mando like that his It's almost like he's called to protect this little thing like you cannot help. Yes can't help it. And so like he's almost a testament himself of like to the good. I guess it's like Oh. This was all a test just to see. If you would take care of this. You know his species is innately like constantly testing people for the light that they have inside of them. Ah I love that when we see him use the force it just feels totally intuitive. Like he saw this this guy who seems to be trying to protect him get hit by this big beast of several several times and look like he's GonNa die so just out of total kindness in intuition he reaches his little handout and gives it his all and then has to take snap his rely his three footed like I can't handle some he's normally wearing little brown loafers but sometimes they're often. He has his little coffee feet. And I hate to put it back under the proper Ryan Johnson presents. 'cause out well if he is in actual parent. Do you get nervous but man does bad parenting of baby. Yoda no no. I relate with Mando a lot like especially when he that that trying to explain everything. You need that child to do as if they're functioning adults and watching them like I listen and then still do what they were going to do anyways. I get all parents fall into that trap yet. No logic I wanna hit that button and I look I told you don't you don't hit that button guy but it looks bright. I'm not against all other franchises sizes making baby versions of the ill but accepted. You see someone made the baby thanos.

"Be welcome to another episode of the Trivia with Buds. PODCAST I'm your host Ryan Buds. Thanks for checking out this show. It is Disney plus day day. Every Tuesday on the show we will be highlighting something from Disney plus whether it's star wars or Disney or marvel or maybe Jeff Goldblum related. You never ever know. But there's tons of content on there and I am all caught up on the man. The lorry in four episodes in I love it. I'm just a casual star wars fan but I think it is a really really fun show to watch and I can't wait to see where the next four episodes take us. Today's episode is about babies and Yoda to touch on the idea of the man delorean. But don't worry if you're not caught up. There are no huge spoilers. If you've been on the Internet anytime in the last month you will know that baby. Yoda is a thing. So if I'm ruining that for you I apologize. But that's about as spoiler as this episode will get other cool stuff. I'm watching on the old streaming services would be the following. Here's a quick list castle. Rock doc we got all caught up on that season two. I like a lot better than season. One I just think it's more interesting story more interesting characters and I have a better idea of what's going on and a cool tie-in to some other things from the past so Digging castlerock season two and I was very reluctant to watch it at all because of how season one left left me going. I don't know what this was about another show. I've mentioned that we're still watching. It's called life in pieces on CBS. who added Sitcom from CBS? So they only have a few. CBS things on there. But this show is hilarious. It's really really funny. It's four short stories in Sitcom format and they all kind of go together and and it's just about like three separate families. It's Kinda like modern family very similar without the modern spin probably But really funny show. If you're looking for a sitcom that kinda slipped by really like that show I think there's five seasons in three or four of them are on loop and then I've been watching episodes. Which is that Matt Leblanc show on? It was on I think. BBC ABC or showtime One of those two and now. They're all on Netflix. I'm trying to watch that and I did that. Show because it's a good mix of what I like about British shows and American shows so check that one out if you've never seen episodes and then of course the great British baking show almost caught up on that I think I'm too episodes behind or maybe it's done. I don't know maybe I'm more behind that. I thought but I think there are five contestants left on the episode that I just watched so a still a few more episodes to go at least if there are new ones to come out so that's where I'm at in the world is streaming stuff. Hopefully I'll finish all that stuff this month and I could jump into the new year. Fresh what are you watching. What are you like in? What are you digging? What are you deviate if you still have A?
