White People Talking About Whiteness

"Guys many, if not most white people don't think of themselves as racialist race, we might tell ourselves is a reality for people who have different skin colors than ours Black People Hispanic people, Asian people, Indigenous People, etc, but of course white is a race. Quick important side note here. Race is not a biological thing. It is socially constructed. Sadly the white people who seem to have most clearly grasped that white is race or white nationalists. But now it is time for the rest of US white people to actually see whiteness and to talk to each other about it. This many people in the racial justice world would argue. Is the key first step toward white people engaging fully in creating a more equitable society. My guest today is Eleanor Hancock. She's the executive director of group called White, awake which employs and I'm quoting here educational resources and spiritual practices. To engage white people and I'm quoting here again in the creation of just and sustainable society an quote. Eleanor was recommended to me by seven Selassie, who's one of the court teachers on the ten percent happier APP, and was on the show last week, and really powerful episode which I recommend you check out. In this episode Eleanor, and I talk about why this work is so important. Why so many white people resist it? The barriers white people face when they actually do begin the work. The role of meditation, and the problematic aspects of white woke kness in the discussions here we go eleanor Hancock. Nice to meet you virtually. Thanks again for doing this absolutely. So I'd be curious to hear how you came to this work. How and why you can't? I would star with just a little bit about my background and the different stages in my life that have led up to it. I grew up in West Texas. kind of a mid sized city very conservative environments. I'm solid GENENTECH's so I, didn't I was we had an integrated public school system? But that said there's I think a lot of kind of just default segregation that happens socially so I developed awareness of the differences that folks of color the differences of their experiences in the united. States in particular verses, my experience as a white person that began to happen for me in graduate school. It was a variety of different circumstances that led to that. One of them like. Having a roommate that was reading the autobiography of Asada Shukor, and just realizing I, knew about I knew about Amnesty International and that there could be folks who are imprisoned for political reasons, but I it was shocking to me to realize that was something that happened here in the United States, and then the other thing is very influential to me to jump in I. Hate interrupting my guest, but it might be worth explaining a little bit of a Sasha core in that back story just oh! So she's. Part of the Black Panthers and during this entire time period where the FBI. was, targeting civilians through their coin tell pro program and a lot of just extreme aggression on many different levels, including the outright murder of Fred Hampton while he was sleeping in his bed at night, and it was a really it was a political assassination, and during that time period they were able to capture Asada and create these charges against her that kept her in prison for a long time and. She escaped to Cuba. All of that history I would really encourage people to read about that. You can look up quantel pro and the FBI and understand. The destruction that occurred to a lot of the movements that brought a so much during the sixties, the fifties, sixties and seventies the ways that they were destroyed. And part of what happens when you infiltrate and destroy a movement from within is. All only harm it. Externally you create so much paranoia and violence within that then people also began to destroy one another in different ways, so in terms of my own. You know just how I came to this work I try not to Belabor the story too much, but I was in a series of classes and graduate school with a Chicano professor who was teaching performance our, and this was in the late nineties and I really. Learned a lot about what at the time we would have simply called identity politics through art. So. Yeah, being part of those performance art classes for the entire time. I was in graduate school, was really an eye opener that was also during this apetit Easter rebellion, and so we were all just starting to get online, and that was part of it was incredible about that time period. APETIT ZAPPA of southern Mexico, who are indigenous people who had risen up against their own governments specifically in response to Nafta the North American. Free Trade Agreement. And there are a lot of aspects of my world view that developed during that time period, and then as I lived in my life. You know I have a biracial daughter. Her father's African American during the time that we were married I had the privilege of spending a lot of time with his family and developing strong relationships with them, and experiencing myself as the minority I think that that's a unique experience that not every a lot of people don't have that opportunity to be inside of somebody else's space racially speaking and have to understand their norms and their experience and adapt to that. I think that's a really valuable experience.

How Indigenous people are making connections and finding support during COVID-19 pandemic

"Is it important for you? To use ingredients from an indigenous worldview so to speak so becoming a chef and focusing on indigenous Lou cultures of the Americas know within the last seven years researching and in gaining knowledge. I realized that you know knowing where food comes from seasonally you know and food is our medicine and we have to continue serving or ancestral foods. No special bearing a timely. Today you know just serving on for example sage or Cedar T. for example has a lot of anti oxidants you know has a lot of these on properties that are able to help with your immune system Now you've been making large batches of food for weeks now. What would you say is the best dish that you've created on Tuesdays? We we try and and follow the traditional culinary restaurant scene. If you may so every Tuesday we do talk. Oh I know so instead of serving India Tacos we we. We focus on the South List and a Mexican style tacos of using fresh corn tortillas in Cedar Braids Bikes and hominy temporary beans. Oh my gosh. My mouth is watering right now. Brian so why do you think it's important particularly during this difficult time for people to turn to community and each other for support you know for me be? Navajo? The southwest and residing here in Dakota and territories. You know I feel like this. Is My second home being here as a chef and having a platform that I have I feel like I can use that as a tool to my advantage. So how this community dot org are forgotten about daring the ZAPPA crisis and why does send a native American elders? What inspired you to focus on them. Specifically something needed you know is just not only talk about unity when we talk about commute to you know we got to. Nali look towards our next generation of kids but also look into our roots and elders no showing that respect shown dot common love of where we came from. Well thank you so much for your efforts and your time today Brian. Thank you for the opportunity to share a story in the work that we are doing. Brian. Yeah Z. Is a Navajo Chef based out of Minneapolis? In addition to cooking. Up MEALS FOR ELDERS. Brian also sharing how to cooking videos on his youtube channel which focuses on indigenous ingredients to check out photos of some of his culinary creations.

You need to be compatible before you'll be valued.

Hacking Your Leadership

You need to be compatible before you'll be valued.

"For this episode on a talk about compatibility many years ago. I was having a conversation with my boss time. He was in the process of being recruited away from his job to another organization and he'd just returned from a week of interviews and meetings with this potential new company could meet him in size them up. I asked him how it went and he said he didn't know what they thought of him. He was happy where he was was looking for another job at the moment and we did it out of curiosity given level interest. This company was showing in him but he also said he was incredibly glad he went through the process because it taught him something about himself. The had never thought about before you see. Most people who injury process want the job most hiring processes start with a person submitting an application resume. Because they're either unemployed underemployed or actively looking to leave their current organization. The hopes of finding something better and this process of courtship when we probably all shared in brings with it certain implications to court someone means to seek their affection to lure them attempt them. We do with romantic partners potential clients or customers and we definitely do with potential employers. But it's human nature to believe that whoever started the process is the one who wants it more and that means we all tend to focus on trying to be the person we think the other person wants us to be rather than remembering who we are and the value. We bring this colleague of mine. Who went through? This courtship process arrived with the comfort of knowing. He didn't need the job. And the fact that this company reached out to him flipped virtual switch in his brain to let him to think about the processes if he were interviewing this company as potential employer rather than believing he was being interviewed. He said consequently he was able to crystal clear about his values and about what kind of leader he was he was forthcoming. Let the kind of leadership he expected and the country wouldn't tolerate thinks he did his best to make happen at every job he'd had but it never been so insistent on during an interview a few days after this conversation with him he was recruited even more vigorously by this company and eventually ended up taking the job. He said the primary reason you decided to accept the job was the fact that these senior leaders saw the real him in one hundred percent candor and the reaction was. We need this here. It was freeing this idea that he could start a new job and not have to. Slowly get people weaned into his leadership style. Now there's a reason why throughout this story. I haven't told you what kind of leadership style this person has. And that's because it doesn't matter because this story isn't about being specific kind of leader it's about knowing the kind of places in which you'll inherently thrive. It's about having the confidence to be your true self when you interview for a job because a company that doesn't want the real you is one that will make you miserable when you find out. They don't last week. I saw post on leaked in about a guy whose father gave him an old hand down. Watch that supposedly been the family for generations and his father said before you wear this. I want you to a pawnshop and see how much the offer you for it. The men came back and said the pawnshop offered him a hundred dollars the father said okay now go to the jeweler and see how much they'll offer you for it. The man came back and said the jeweler offered one hundred dollars lasted if other said ticket to the museum and see how much they'll offer you for it. The men return and said the museum offered a million dollars. The point of the stories at the right place values you in the right way. Don't put yourself in the wrong place and then get angry. If you're not valued when it comes to leadership and culture there is no single right way. There's only the way that works for you. The extreme hierarchical nature of the military contrast well with the complete lack of hierarchies at companies like ZAPPA's and neither is wrong they attract different types of people so when you meet New People with the potential bosses potential colleagues potential romantic partners and even potential friends start the potential right by just being you and let the chips fall where they may those people and those companies WanNa keep you around will likely be fulfilling relationships and you're more likely to be happy in them as well. Now if just being you means nobody really wants to keep around that a lot of self reflection and changes probably in order. That's a different problem for a different episode. Thanks for listening and have a great

Lightning Labs Beta Tests Its First Paid Product: Lightning Loop

"Is lightning loop. Yes sure so. Lightning loop is a product that we had lightning lobster developed to make it more efficient to send receive bitcoin on the leading network and the nature of lightning is such that you have amazing speed amazing skill ability and very low fees but there there is a requirement of liquidity. And what that means is if you want to receive funds on lightning you need what we call inbound liquidity to do so and this is more obvious to the average individual but if you WanNa send funds you need funds on the side that you're going to sentence you need the ability to save money in your account as lighting Luke does is it helps people relocate their funds in the network so for example if a lot of people have sent me funds on lightning already and I no longer have that inbound capacity liquidity as we call it I then can no longer keep perceiving those funds so lighting could actually help people by moving their funds from lightning back to the bitcoin. Blockchain Nagas Odio manner so they could keep receiving and and then similarly If you want to send funds online and you can actually refill your channel. Think of it as refilling an account using lightning by swapping funds from the Bitcoin blockchain onto to lightning So in analogy. I sometimes use Luke. Inas be calling you refill. Your channel is kind of like Refilling your prepaid debit card or a couch loop out is a little bit harder. Because we don't usually have that concept but if you had a cash full of cash and you actually did take cash out and then you can continue to receive money in that register. Not so that works. So Relating Louisville product we already had it in Alpha had quite a lot of startups involved Some great folks like fold have been users of it and it's helping. Their businesses is helping them. More effectively center received funds enlightening. And we've gotten a lot of good feedback so far and we announced the Beta with increase limits for people to be able to move their funds in and out of lightening from the decline `Blanche blockchain and would have the limit spin. And what are they now so lightning that were generally today has a limit of around fifteen hundred. US dollars per channel so channels are kind of like accounts on the network people open multiple channels between two participants. Anouk there's also a transaction action limit Which is point zero four to BTC? So it's about three hundred three fifty dollars. Depending upon the Bitcoin of the day loop originally was capped. Ah previously at half. That's about one fifty now. It's up to around three hundred three fifty and that will stay in place while the cats are present on the lightning network more broadly. But there's something called one Bo kind of like jumbo. W that is derived from spongebob. And crash relying co-founder lawlor spongebob. I just missed the whole. Spongebob thing but he's really is about larger channel sizes on lining doing so today. We soldiers limits in place chose to do so for safety and security reasons but with one Bo it will be opt in larger channel sizes so the good news is somebody will unintentionally opening massive channel and not realize what they're doing but if they choose to do so they'll be able to opt in and put more capital until lightning in these channels So with one Bo in the broader network will also increase Luke capacities as well as you mentioned you know the limits so far have been pretty small. Aw but you did talk about some of the companies that are building on them. So what are the typical applications that companies are using lightning for now. Yeah so we've seen this the whole host of startups emerge which has been really incredible Less than two years ago at Lightning Labsi release the Beta version of our implementation of lightning network. There are numerous implementations implementation's there's US you lightning from extreme. There's a clear from a sink so we built ours. We release his Beta. And since then we've seen a whole new crop of startups emerge. I didn't even exist prior to this. Many of them are focused on lightning. I so there are a few categories of these One that I know our head of Operations Desert dickerson loves a UH the rise of the lightning gaming startup so quite a few video game companies have emerged. There's ZD Donner lab. SUSHI's games where they're integrating lightning payments into their video games. So I think that's a really Case we've seen a lightning payment startups where you can buy things with lightning. So we have full bit refill. Fill open node. Helping people is a payment processor. There's not pay where merchants can integrate bitcoin lightning and run their own when sulfur in order to do so. So there's the ability to pay with lightning. There's Latin pizza which is a cool project from fold where you can order pizza with lightning And in some cases as you get back as well then we have the earning with lightning companies. There's a great one called stock. I mean who doesn't want more bitcoin. I won't Bitcoin. The people think of lightning people spending bitcoin. But there's actually huge potential people. Earning Bitcoin as well so stock is a really great start up just on the founder last night where people can complete these tasks if you know Amazon Mechanical Turk and they earn Sushi's on lightning because think about it this way if you wanted to pay people around the world's talk radio different countries to do small tasks and you wanted to do it with you know in the Fiat system. Good luck you know. That's just not going to be possible. So stock is a great way to complete tasks do this micro work and earn on With lightning and then dirk companies like tip in and a variety of products where you can actually two people apple and again earn people can actually make money with lightning a noisy the rise of a lightning financial startup. And they're quite view these as well river financial toll for example and disclosure personally in my personal capacity and adviser they are they integrated. Led lighting where you can deposit and withdraw and you can buy Bitcoin coin with dollars and drugs and lightning or you can deposit and then tell for USD we have which is building a lightning native eight of API We have sparks. which is doing trading zapped which is doing OTC You can transact between USD and lightning A host of those in the way of the wallets under great wines like Breeze Moon Zappa also working at a wallet. There's Lula while Toshi so there's really been just as shoot ecosystem that has emerged in less than two years and This fall we co organize a lightning conference we had I five hundred developers enthusiasts community members in Berlin people came from all around the world every continent and it was incredible to see that in person. It's an to release the ABI tangible and enter this world of lightning where everyone was buying. There was a lightning beer tackling cocktail by. You could buy ice cream hot chocolate. Let all sorts of interesting things would lightning. You could play video games as lightning. There's a letting scooter tesla coil. Where when you painted at actually sparked like ooh yesterday I actually live on Yahoo Finance livestream? Our head of operations said the chickens. Paul you feed this community is their real business. Being built in town moved but there are also these crazy used cases. You're like wait if I if I've got a a few years ago that the technical building was gonNA help us chickens like it happened

I guess not too many Americans who will stand up to an organization like that and say now match you look at the way politicians cave-in whenever the That lobby shift a hold of them. They question their boots from camp. Wow Dershowitz was on the radio. Last night he was saying somebody call I think was on Larry King. Somebody called and said would you think about running for the Senate Massachusetts and he said he said politicians are not free to say what they want and I like to say what I wanted with always liked the people that he represents a switch account ludik scholar so he was before he became a lawyer. I think that he's got a lot of depth taft His appreciation for the constitution is really quite fundamental. I'm always interested in what he has to say. I think that he does say what's on his mind. I don't always agree with it. But this is a guy with a brain and I'm glad that Chastity on television because there are too few guys with brains any place on television to think you're intimidating people. Sure I take it. Is that good? You know which is the fact. I wondered if that works to your advantage or disadvantage depending on the situation. I mean I'm really not One of these guys and thinks about power lunch or whether cycle psychological advantage over. Somebody don't deal in that world and I really do. I am what I am. You'll like it fine. Don't to find. Two people. Were usually intimidated by me. If they can ever get over it and wind up liking goosing.

You're probably Has Misunderstood as anybody selected things that are are set a written about you remember I think it was Dave Barry. The humor columnist for the Miami Herald.

Yeah I I think he was joking but I like that idea for a song in the book you Said there are several reasons why music has never really been explained in the press for one thing. People don't care how it works why it works and I care so can you explain it well. I think that it's GonNa rely on the book that there's probably a better explanation more detail than there and grow have been answered off a tough precise coming. That's in the book with also say in the book Not a Virtuoso Guitar Player. That you still have to look at the neck to see what you're playing Which comes as something of surprise to at least to me because Always thought of you as a you know as one more amazing guitar players fair about what I play that I managed to get away with it. Well let's let's Lot Of wiggling your fingers and hoping that you get it right involved. I really virtual silver. I can't breathe and I I don't practice I can't play anything. Virtuosos can play anything and I can play what I imagined like action. There's something interesting about what I play. It has more to do with Badgen. So how does that work? Do you see her at in your head. Or you're thinking about the sound that you'd like to create and then you go about trying to create. Well it's situational and it's also a wage forth like if you have to have an optimum environment motor the player really good solo because collective Expression you you are at the mercy of the ruling section if they are that's into with what you're doing and had the desire to make what you're doing sound good then you can produce good music if they're just scrambling through their day Then no matter what you play it's GonNa come fast with Mesh with rhythm section. Okay let me give you a song if I can. If you can tell me how. How BLACK NAPKINS ONE? That I'm real interested in had it had that come out was a piece that I wrote. And that's A planned music solo itself as an improvisation.

It sounds so silly I know because you know it was really well don on the show but I mean I'm just shocked and amazed that no one balked at that. They can't okay. That could happen if somebody would ask and I will ask you. Why did you watch because I was fascinated? I mean I'm I'm more more excited by bad television in bed. Entertainment than am by what you meant to be good. I I would race out to see several bad movies before it reaches out to see anything that was highly acclaimed or was meant to Win Academy Award. So give me some other Must see at entertain of any kind. Not just did you see Cool as ice nine isis movie. I actually owned a copy That's how good this movie picture place that you're meant to believe exists where you have the mountains the beach and the desert within about five minute ride on a motorcycle geographically. I'm not sure where that is. I think it's meant to be in America I'm just not sure then with dialogue. Where here's a situation? I got so mad control. Here's a guy who became a superstar for no apparent reason and they said yeah that's really cash in on this and we'll even Improv a couple of lines in the movie and the Best Big Blue's zero get with the hero. That's pretty much the way I run my lifestyle. That's good gotta see that. I'd say one of the best terrible movies that was ever made was made a long time ago and they always played around Oscar time. I'm sure you've probably seen it. It's called the Oscar. Janson Tony Bennett. And his finest performance his acting debut is basically the best friend of this guy who is characters name is Frankie Fain and is so over the top. This guy met Tony Tony's over the top too but this one guy I've forgotten his name for the moment but he he should be recognized the finest holiday Hollywood actor of all time. This guy is so scary in this This movie but basically he wants an Oscar so bad that he's willing to kill for one but in this movie. I May Tony Bennett. Haste like he gets kicked out of his best friend's house or somebody spends a night in alley and the next time you see this. Twi- chip put like a spastic. Frankie Okay Tony with With that as your debut you know. You're you're pretty darn excited. I got a five mad. That's on videotape easily. Be able to find video. It's called the Oscar and it's it's seriously you'll want to see that and especially the part in the movie where you'll say John. Does the cat dance. Okay that's That's probably the finest family entertainment you can get. Your movie is all around just spectacular. And they they run it like on Turner Broadcasting. You know like Oscar night. Usually you come come off tonight. You know you'll probably find it on. Tv once or twice shake your upper listings. Insurance at should be there Let me ask you a question too but Your Dad if you don't mind I've after a lot of things about what you've what you've said about him and and all I'm wondering is it either. Creatively must have been wonderful to grow up around. Somebody like that is also a little intimidating because You know he was just so amazing intimidating sometimes to To speak with them go. You felt like if you weren't talking about something that had some sort of important in some fashion that you're wasting because he was It's one of those people who had such a remarkable ability to store information that he was just walking and track. And you really. You had to be undertone to talk to him. You know. You didn't want to talk to him about unless it was something. Goofy guaranteed for laughs then. you know then you you wanted to basically Rank something every time you you know you talked to me. Hither he was great for that my interviewed him once and he said that that basically all the guitar stuff that he did just stuff came out of his head he negree couldn't really recreate it so much as it just he hurt the sounds and he can play then teach itself to play it on the. Ktar up learn from from him. I mean I. I've read that. You've said that deepen halen inspired you but you learn guitar from him. I've played with him on several occasions on stage and to sit around and certainly could learn from it but the The thing is had such unique style. That was So completely awkward in terms of the style of guitar playing that sort of involved the last fifteen years with a lot of people achieving a certain amount of technique. You know his worst Technique that only he could really do. That's what made it so so peculiar. And he had a very strange picking style and weird fingerings first off so we really have to watch and listen as opposed to like some people. You can hear what they're doing and you can play it preview. Pick it out pretty easily. And you'd have to see how he did it to make it make any sense. 'cause it just it just unique to and that's what so cool about all of its music. Buzzer was unique to him. And there's few people who have that ability with their with their music to make the music unique to them. You know people can write a song and then anybody can plant and cover. It could sound good but you know you try to do some of my dad's basic unless you play it the way he intended. It does not sound right now. As far as the songs that he ru. Black Napkins was always my favorite. Yeah was there anything else. The to always really admired my favorite song. When I was little was peaches on Regalia whenever they play that I think that's the one of the greatest melodies just really an excellent piece of music. We play when we play live. Oh really okay. So so you'll do that here. We probably plays someone. Tell us we Jersey love and eat that question we we'd try a few little things. I appreciate all your top. I'm looking forward to seeing the show.

You know that there was another form of just a complete nightmare to the words being penitentiary made it. It's together. Put it to you. This way the We were meant to do a show. That was something along the lines of the addams family but the network decided At the last minute to make us do something along the lines of Charleston charge and we were not very fond of that notion but we were bound to this contract and we just wrote it out like a really bad fucking ride in amusement park and one of his time to promote the thing we pretty much told people that Anka's we had such a miserable miserable time doing it. We hated the writers producers. We didn't like the network and it was like these people were just torturing US basically we after why. Why did we have to be part of this? Why didn't they just recast people? But they just forced us to participate in this day and we said okay promoted. That would be something if it was the worst well. Unfortunately it really wasn't to worship so we didn't even have that fire to at that point was just like somewhere in between and that's about the worst day you know you can deal. It's like it's not good but it's not the worst. You know like devoid of anything. But you know it's just shocking to see things like Fuckin- saved by the bell the college years and you're wondering how people watch that think it's really good. The other corner was popular. Show in the world and Baywatch for chrissakes. My favorite plausible episode was the one where the fine David Hasselhoff character believe is Mitch. Let's just call it Mitch. Mitch trying to save two of his life guard from a serial killer who has them in a power as threatening to kill them and of course the FBI and Swat teams on the beach but mates refuses to let them take control. He says this is my beach as if a lifeguard is going to have jurisdiction over the FBI. So that's the first thing that You're you're having trouble believing. But then copy comes possible when he does this. He decides to get a grid map. The sewage system underneath to the beach and he knows somehow where other lifeguard stations are above ground under the sand and decide to cut through a big pipe and swim through the sand. Like a gopher wood under the ground over to this Fucking lifeguard station. They actually had in burrowing underground made this trail.

Innovative Solutions for a Happy, Healthy, Connected Workplace

"Lot of people have perceptions about what funding the workplaces some of you may have been traumatized by creepy team building stuff. It's not that it's really really not so. I think you'll be surprised and pleased that there's there's alternatives to that and establish fun as a process. Ask Not an event and that was one of my moments years ago when I was doing this in the workplace. We'll we'll talk a little bit about that. that God wouldn't it be better if you took those euphoric but fleeting feelings that you get from an event once or twice a year and break those up consistently throughout the course of the year wouldn't that yield better revette better results and in fact it did and that's that's how we really got started with this model and then finally teach you how to easy effective affordable programming again. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised tries so let's get into it so the agenda terms you will not recognize that's because we made them up. The first is easy. We're going to talk a little bit about the evolution of fun the work place the why and the Roi So so why is fun your competitive advantage thankfully. There's a lot of people out there today. A lot of brilliant mind Sean Acre Simon Sinek Tony Shay others who have done a lot of the the research and have the experience about the Y. Fund and we're going to talk about that it. It's usually frames frames up a conversation about the health too but know that our expertise really GonNa talk about today is how to successfully implement fund or place place so after we do the the the evolution of wine or why the laws of fun in these are the things that we learned over the course of a more than a decade of delivering of funding workplace in every conceivable vertical market that you could imagine any is companies doesn't matter these laws or universal truth. I WANNA call them our our standard within any application and then the shared experience agreeance and this is where the model really gets different. We talk about what's fun for you. Your culture your environment not inflicted fun on on you as some people may have experienced in the past and then how to develop your creative inventory. This is literally how to put it together and create brief but organic in fun activities in the workplace that really will get you moving on your way to establishing a culture of funded happiness at work and then finally finely design activate and sustain so you know it's all words and talk unless you actually make the commitment to do it and put it on the calendar even make it happen so that's the agenda. Let's let's get started so the first peers the Lucien end of the why are are alive fun at work. I'm going to spend a little bit of time just credentialing if you will so what makes us the experts and you know why is this information meaningful and what I want you to take away in this piece of it is that this is all based on practice and experience right so it's not a theoretical this is based on practice and experience it all started many many years ago at a company. United Electric Supply or there for many years and they had a work hard play hard ethic act before culture was even a term that was used in business but work hard play hard ethic ethic and I just naturally gravitated towards the play hard. I already knew how to work hard so but my my hunters suspicion was that that was was this companies competitive advantage that play and fun. I'm led to all these wonderful results. This company had on high productivity high retention high profitability on paper. They shouldn't have even been in business because there's a lot bigger competitors that could take them out from a pricing standpoint but wonderful customer service great place still is today but we formed the circuit club and many of you may be on on committees at at work trying to fund plan fun activities in the workplace or engagement committees culture committees so we had the circuit club we met every two weeks ten people and we learned a lot through that process but I started to see that it wasn't just appropriate to have fun after work work while we did those events in Annual Holiday Party and summer picnic as many of you made may still do what I noticed over the period of years as they became Louis and less popular as people's demands for the personal time just became more and more evidence. There was less attendance at at those events so I thought Jeez. Let's plan things brief but consistently throughout the course of the year and we did in that model really seemed to work so my fascination continued. You'd I started to research fun workplace and this guy came up so if anybody can guess who that is and you can type it in Dan. I'll give you send you two dollar bill or a book or something. I don't know but that is Dr Paul McGee and he's one of the foremost authorities is on fun and humor laughter and very well published and just really awesome guide. He happened to live in my home town or when house research in it. I thought what the heck this guy's from my neighborhood so we met and you know he he really thought that this theory theory I had about starting a company called the fun department to to change the model of of traditional team building you know was was a good one but he he said be prepared for a long haul. there's a lot of nonbelievers out there and then before. I got started. I thought wow jeeze. Maybe I should get some professional help. Somebody who really cleaners deliver fun so I got this guy so Dave Raymond is the guy who who created the best mascot of all all time he lived as the philly fanatic for many many years and it was a friend of mine and I thought Jeeze if anybody knows how to have fun at stave so God together with Dave and and we created this this company fun department back in five did this team building events for many many years until today and we still do lots of team building events and then wrote a book documented or process. We wanted to teach people this model in process that you're GONNA learn today so we started a training consulting part of the business and then we got out into the product business in two thousand seventeen actually shipping subscription a services as of boxes of fun and then finally in very proud to be partners with delivering happiness twenty eighteen we started a partnership with the age age and if anybody knows that company born out of Tony Shays experience with ZAPPA's starting a company based on culture the happiness and fun and taking a very tradition no boring business online shoes and making it mega successful so one of many examples of companies today that are disruptors in the marketplace that are starting with culture starting with happiness happiness and fun and and building a company from there so much like the experience at United Electric where nothing fancy or glamorous about electric electrical supplies allies but they had this amazing culture that was based on funded happiness at work so that's enough credentialing sorry if it seemed like a commercial just wanted to give you a little history and background and and why you know why it's important to recognize that this again is based on practice and experience so the more data and we're going to again talk about the how to but I I want to cover the why because most conversations about funded happiness happiness at work. Somebody's gotTa be convinced. It's leader you know. CEO CFO somebody's gotta say Jeez. Why do we WANNA do this. What makes it important so this. Is You just one statistic and it's one of my favorites because it says eighty one percent of employees not this is not from leaders. It's not for management. eighty-one birth sign of employees in companies denoted as great in fortunes one hundred best companies to work for say they work in a fun workplace. Environment Arment so that's significant because from an employee standpoint fun has the highest correlation of any other thing that makes up a the culture and what people think denotes a great company so it's important to know that from your employees perspective that fun ranks very vary hi it's sixty to seventy percent correlation to a great company so important to notice if you're GONNA start with culture why not start with you know with fun

I played 53 Apple Arcade titles and enjoyed almost every one

"Go to a more positive note to end the show. What do you think yeah I think we should get all Gucci in Mushy on apple because I have of something that I have fallen completely in love with and I thought it was going to happen and it did I am having a love affair right now with apple orcades and the reason is you might be going Adam. It's not out yet. It's coming out on Friday yet. I lucked out and got early. Beta access actually if you're on the Beta of of IOS thirteen It sounds like you can get access to apple arcade. I read an article where it said it was being randomly only selected but I've seen a lot more people getting it so maybe it was just a slow roll out regardless getting a tryout apple arcade paying for it for ninety nine a month. I signed Yep. I'm actually on the free month trial and it is amazing. I can say it's amazing and I'm not even a heavy Gamer as you might know but I like playing casual games James. I like playing games from time to time and having a handful of titles sixty four right now is the current sample. That's up there in their adding more for all the time that I can just look at C. One that interests me and click get and play has been amazing using the titles everything that I've looked at so far. Each one of them has been unique. It's been innovative extremely well-designed plays extremely well visually amazing and engaging and I think most of all just a bunch of fun. I've tried a bunch of different. John Ras not every APP just a handful of them at this point but I can tell you that every title that I have tried has been quality. This is tot top top notch stuff from some amazing developers and apple really did a great job selecting those developers and putting this together what's also great is because it's a paid for service no anna purchase no constantly being haggled haggled or nagged to buy gems and this that and the other with real cash you get everything all the features full featured applications no no micro transactions no in-app purchases and it's incredible and I think because of that because developers don't have the pressure of trying to get more money out of you through in-app purchase and micro transactions and luke boxes and all that garbage I think the game play is better better and the results are stunning. I think developers not having to focus on that part of it which is really marketing gets gets them to the place where all they have to focus on is making great games with really great game play and compelling content and I think it shows I ran across one title on the the APP dappled that does actually have a quote unquote store but it uses currency that you earn during Gameplay to let you buy more levels and more content. It's it's actually an en- game element. It's a reward system system for playing the game and doing well in the game and it makes the game more fun. It's not an oppressive soul-crushing punishment system that says I am going to block block you from playing or enjoying this game until you give me money or by gems or a loop box or upgrade your stuff with real cash. It's not like that at it's a reward system that drives the game play and that's the kind of creativity that I'm talking about you. Go in there and you're like Oh. I WANNA go play more so I can earn more so than I can buy these other books in the store so I can get more content so I can enjoy the game more. It's really a lot of fun and that game by the way is called dear reader later some of the other titles that I've tried so far. Scien- our wild hearts which I think was one of the ones that they demo D- great sound very fast paced game a lot of fun very challenging it works with an MFA game controller which is Great. I'm enjoying that part of it. I've also tried patterned. Shins Sky deep-sea. I think that's how you say the the underwater one again another one they they showed off at the event tint hot lava wear cards fall which is the one from snowman which I was very much looking forward to and was worried when it got pulled into Apple Arcade 'cause that was going going to be a release on Ios and then it was like oh no. You're only going to be able to get it through apple arcade well because of the pricing. I have a feeling that game alone would have been a five to ten in dollar game and now you have it as part of the four ninety nine a month subscription. I think this is just an incredible value. Even if you are not a huge game team player now everything isn't perfect. There are some very very minor what I would call an almost hesitate to call downsides one is that not all titles seem to support external game controllers several do but I figured many would because of the Apple TV and I haven't been able to retrial on the Apple TV yet. It's not been enabled for that right now. It's just enabled on IOS devices so I can't speak very much the TV experience but I expect it to to be pretty good. I think it would be better with a game controller. I'm not a huge fan of playing games with Apple's remote. I think it's okay but it's not really great I'll probably try playing them mostly with the remote on my iphone because you get a little more real estate for swiping and stuff like that so again. I'll have to let you know in the future how that experience goes but you know minor complaint there and then the only other thing is I could see storage on our vices once again becoming an issue because some of these titles do actually run in the one gigabyte plus range so download sixteen titles and you've just download potentially sixteen gigabytes goodbye. It's worth of content and you download the titles which might sound like a disadvantage but the advantage there is just like the APP store. You have these on your device. They're not going to be reliant reliant on being connected to the Internet now. Some do have connections needed for some of the game play but overall. These are standalone games. You can take them with you you. You don't own them obviously because it's a subscription service but you can have as many on your phone is you can get in terms of the storage so overall. There is great value here. I do think the value is real even if you're a moderate level game player if you're really really just a casual game player. You're not really league games. They don't excite you very much then definitely it's apple arcade. It's not a service probably for you but I do think there are some gamers who might be more casual Gamer or to convert into Maybe mid to moderate level game players if they had the service if you had access to this great content because I think it it is very compelling him a lot of games right games are fun to play on our IPADS and iphones so there you have it. I'm Lovin the service there are or if you other sort of business concerns that I have in just overall ecosystem concerns that I have that I did want to bring up with you and get your opinion on one. One thing I'm concerned about is what does this do to titles that are outside Apple Arcade because I have a feeling just in my few days of playing with it that this is going to be the first place I go to look for new game. I won't be necessarily going to the Games tab in the APP store anymore because hey here's a bunch of quality titles that are being added to all the time. It's growing library that I just have access to. I don't have to pay anything more for what does that do to the other eco-system how do other apps that are not invited into apple arcade and right now it is invite only. Abbas to bring these in how are they going to compete and I think in my mind the best case scenario. Is that developers see that hey there are a lot of people signing for Apple Arcade. These are people who probably really don't like inept purchase. They don't like premium. They're willing to pay obviously if they're buying a subscription service to play games. Maybe I should be targeting getting that market. Maybe I should be focusing more on the game play making a really great compelling game selling it for a set price and I can get some of these people who are getting being more into games to buy my title as well and I think that's sort of apples hope with this is that they can showcase really great games that don't don't have a lot of what I feel are kind of these oppressive mechanisms in them and that will convert more people into people who are willing to pay for and by I great games that would be the best case scenario in my opinion worst case scenario is that it pushes some game developers out of the APP store or they just give up or that others more heavily adopt the freemen model making their stuff free and adding even more inept purchase and premium stuff to make back the revenue revenue so I hope it's not the latter. I hope we don't end up with sort of this bifurcation of here's all the junky free medium low low-quality stuff over here in only the good stuff is in apple arcade. I don't think that's going to be ultimately good for game. Developers don't think it's ultimately going to be good for iphone an apple so I'm hoping that's not what happens but potentially could the other side of this is I also have concerns for the developers as there seems to be a a lot of unanswered questions for how they actually make money if they are part of arcade. Is this thing sustainable. We know that upfront apple partnered with some developers. There's even providing funding in some cases that they could actually develop their games which is great but what happens with the subscription revenue. How how does that get divided up how much ZAPPA keep how much goes to the to the developers and I think even more importantly. How does each developer get their portion of that money. How is that cool. Shared is divided equally. My guess is probably not. Is it done by downloads of the game. You know. How many installs happen maybe is done by the amount of time people people spend actually in game playing that could be a possibility as well. We really don't now and what happens when the number of titles grows that revenue pot is going to get divided up even more so. Is there going to be this kind of competition for that money and how does that affect developers within at ecosystem as well. I don't really know the answers to these questions. Apple

How To Build A 7-Figure Side Hustle Without Quitting Your Full-Time Day Job with Shaan Patel

"Say what's up to a fire nation in here's something interesting about yourself that most most people don't know hey fire nation has a going many mishaan patel and something interesting about myself that most people don't know is is i actually grew up in a motel so i grew up with my parents owning a budget motel in las vegas and and so we sorta lived in this living space that was two bedrooms can actually lived in a motel room actually connected to this small motel with with just twenty three rooms of my parents owned and it was an interesting upbringing because i didn't live in the suburbs or in an apartment <hes> you know i i was helping with the front desk and it's probably how i got into entrepreneurship exposed to from a young age because my parents were operating operating it and that's kinda where i grew up man. You must have really seen like vegas in the strip. Just grow over those years yeah. It's so crazy. Zi hao different las vegas is these days because i grew up a little bit off the strip in this budget motel in downtown las vegas and you know now now. There's just so much like that used to be. The worst part of town known wanna go there totally just run down and you know what happened was zappa riposte came in and totally renovated the area and with their entrepreneurship and they're sort of like startup culture. There's so many new startups startups in downtown las vegas. It's the cool place to go. It's got great restaurants and bars so it's so crazy seeing that you know having grown up there when no one wanted to go to that area fire nation sometimes time is a cure for everything and as i alluded to in the introduction we're gonna be talking today about how to build a seven figure side-hustle without quitting your fulltime day job so let's start off shown by talking to our listeners fire nation about doing what what's the no. What do you mean by that tons of entrepreneurs often or people who want to become entrepreneurs. I should say <hes> they wondering what kind of business should did they start or what kind of side business could they start without quitting their day job and you know billionaire warren buffett has said that he's a successful investor because he stays is within the realms of what he knows and this couldn't be true or when it comes to entrepreneurship in other first rule. Do you know one of the biggest mistakes i see. Entrepreneurs make is attempting to go into an industry that they're not familiar with if you have no knowledge of industry and you're just going because everyone else is are doing artificial intelligence or whatever it may be nothing about it. I mean you're shooting yourself in the foot before you even start the race <hes> but if you have deep knowledge knowledge of a particular topic you immediately have competitive advantage so i think that people should do what they know. When it comes to starting a side business do what you know fire nation. I wanna gary vanish like all the time and he says you know what a lotta people say gary. You always repeat yourself. He's like because they only know like three or four the things but i believe in them so much and i know them so well. That's where i focused. That's where i just make sure all of my time. Energy effort bam. I'm with is spent in fire nation that such a good lesson for all those reasons now a lotta people try to stay away this day and age sean from like a service based company company because they think is just treating time for dollars and all that jazz. Let's talk about that a little bit because you have a different perspective. Why do you think people should start a service based company absolutely <hes> you know because when you're deciding between trying to create a product or trying to create a service. I think that most people think of entrepreneurs and in you know me you being on shark tank. People were kind of surprised to hear that. I was on shark tank because i didn't invent a product. I invented a service. I think service based businesses are so much better for the solo entrepreneur because of a few reasons wine is there much less capital intensive and they have a higher probability thirty of success and so the next question is well entrepreneurs wise. What what services should they sell while they should sell services essentially actually <unk> on what they know right just what we talked about the topics that they consider themselves experts at so. Let's say you're chef and you have expertise in specific cooking techniques. They could write a book. Do some consulting start a food blog start. A podcast become an influence create an online course. There's all kinds of service based companies is that people can do around their expertise and the easiest way really

New details emerge on Epstein's death

"No foul play that is the bottom line conclusion of the new york medical examiner determined chairman today. The cause of death for jeffrey obscene was suicide by hanging these autopsy results. Come following a week of rampant speculation about what happened after epstein was found mysteriously dead in his manhattan jail cell which is under the supervision of the trump administration while awaiting this much publicized trial on sex trafficking charges tonight. Epsteins lawyers are casting down the findings. They're saying quote their team. Intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation is circumstances and cause of of mr epstein death now other investigations already underway as lawmakers demand answers from the trump administration d._o._j.'s bureau of prisons these are basic questions russians like why was epstein suddenly taken off suicide watch when there had been previous apparent suicide attempt and why we're procedures that are designed to deal with exactly zappa. This situation not followed in the case of an individual who was a famous and be publicly linked multiple officials in the trump administration as well as linked to several democrats we can add but when it comes to conflicts of interest.

Quote epstein left alone in the cell guards failed to check on him for several hours leading up to his death after officials have given explicit instructions for him not ought to be left alone for guards to check on him every thirty minutes so all investigations continue looking at exactly those kinds of failures there ours excuse me there are a whole different set of cases proceeding and they are important.

Amazon's information about what we are buying is turning into a really good ad business from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. You're how there's this sense that if Amazon gets into your line of work, you're in trouble. Well, Hello digital advertising. Amazon has been slowly building up its ad business. Leading brands target ads to people on Amazon dot com, and it's other sites like the live streaming platform twitch IMDB, which it owns and Zappa Zappa's. And then, of course, all across the web. And it's pitch is simple. Amazon is telling advertisers that the best predictor of what you the consumer are going to buy is the stuff. You've already bought a report out today from research firm emarketer says Amazon has been a distant third in digital ads behind Facebook and Google and is starting to look like a dangerous third Monica Pierre is senior forecasting director for emarketer. So over the next year, we expect to Amazon will cross over the fifteen. Billion mark. Meaning that it's definitely gaining share on the top to add selling platforms, both Google and Facebook and gaining over ten percent share in the market, which which will be quite a feat. When we think about not even being, you know, five or six percent in the past couple of years, and then tell me about the data advantage or the the data play that Amazon has I mean, it seems like it's taken people a long time to realize the potential power of Amazon, including maybe Amazon from a business perspective the power of Amazon, knowing what you buy exactly it. And that's really the true differentiator when we think of Amazon and in its competitors. Really? You know, Google certainly knows what we've searched for and Facebook definitely knows what we've liked who are connected to but Amazon. Will know what we bought and for advertisers that are selling products, that's really helpful to know. So this, of course, does rely on any e commerce at business relies on your data. Amazon has a lot of trust right now in with a lot of consumers at a time. When people are getting more mistrustful of the advertising yuko system and how much information it gathers is that a concern for Amazon at all that consumers might say. I didn't know you were gonna use my information this way, right essentially, it comes down to ease of use. And whether the customer is getting what they've asked the platform for and so such as it is with, you know, other platforms Google as long as you're returning the search results that that you're looking for consumers are can be quite forgiving about sharing information. So that's an opportunity, of course for Amazon. On. But it is something that consumers will start to think more and more about the question becomes whether advertisers. See that as a risk math, Monica Pierre, senior forecasting director for emarketer. And she says this realization that real time information about what people are buying might lead to successful ads who thunk right is also pushing other ecommerce companies such as wal mart to build add businesses too. And now for some related links as it happens. Bloomberg had a good story over the weekend about WalMart. And it's add ambitions, you can find that on our website. Marketplace tech dot org. One thing. It says is that WalMart actually has more US customers than Facebook Google or Amazon combined, but just hasn't figured out. How to take all that good information about what people like to buy and turn it into money, but Amazon's rapid growth in terms of advertising, certainly offering a new model. In fact, the story notes that target's grocery chains like Kroger and other brick and mortar stores are starting to make the same pitch to advertisers about how useful their data is for selling ads that get people to actually click and buy it's a super interesting development because it tells you that the race for who's going to win the internet era is definitely not over even though it feels like Facebook and Google have a lock on the whole thing. Sometimes I mean, advertisers are a mercenary bunch. They're looking for something called conversion rates that is the thing where we actually click and by. Instead of just ignoring ads, and if they start getting better conversion by buying out space from WalMart or target or Sears or Domino's pizza. Then all of a sudden Facebook and Google don't make so much money after all, and they're not so invincible, of course, Amazon could just end up being the most invincible of all. But either way the story is not yet written and it's possible that a new chapter is just starting. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is APN. Patrick in Santa Cruz.

"On a daily basis, but it's Zappa store that really stands out. So my son who was gosh. He was four or five six maybe he was young right? And for young child to recognize amazing service is just interesting in it of south. But the fact that he took time to write a letter and send it to them to to thank them for when he orders shoes, he gets the next the next day at six years old. He wrote this letter. Yeah, he had to have help. Maybe it's mom house. And then when when he when he doesn't the shoes don't fit he puts them in the box and they naturally reappear back at Zappa's. So he wrote a letter of gratitude, and you know, normally, you don't expect companies to respond or if they do right, then maybe they might send you a letter. Yeah. So this box comes from Zappa's in any is a hand built book with photographs of about their culture. But not only did they build this book. But they signed it everybody in the company is back when they were small and shop, I literally cried, I just I I was touched by the effort that they put into that. But really, it's not just that. It's the whole journey of the experience. And I think experiences wise Zappa's became who they are. And that's what you need to do in life. I think is is. Is really have a purpose and in my life, as I've evolved as a human being and gone through the trials and tribulations that I have I've evolved my own philosophy in life. And it's simple as this. We're on this planet to grow our souls by helping other people grow Thurs, and that's it. So your job in life is is essentially to grow by helping other people grow. And if you think about that is not just a it's not just a personal flush. I think a business had that philosophy that their job was to help others to help other people grow that that would change their perspective. Because I think there's still too many companies that are thinking about bagging and tagging customers. And I think that if you enter into every relationship with the intent to learn enough about that person to find some way to add value. Even if it's as simple as the smile that you give them all your presence, which we rarely do. I think. It will transition your experience and the experience at others receive from you, and I think it will change your life, and it's changed mind. And I think that my best gift get from others when they tell me that I've helped them somehow grow. And that's why I got back in business to build nimble because nimble enables me do power millions of people's dreams of cheating their passion planet purpose in life. And it's all really centered around people connecting with people because I think that that's how we grow is by being present with others sharing who we really are. And if they love you enough, those they'll reflect your ship back at you. And if you're willing to look at your shit in life work on it, you can grow as a human being and that jar job. All right. I love that. So two things number one for those that don't know about this Apple's culture book, basically every year every employee rights what it means to work at Zappa's. And they created this book it is available on Amazon..

"And it's interesting if they would open up the ability for people to do third party, watch faces I think they could actually have a renaissance in people even developing for the apple munching. I remember a well, the very first quotes when won't Mossberg was writing about how fatal if he left his house without his iphone. He would stop and go back and get it. But if he did it without Zappa watch. She wouldn't right to say today in twenty eighteen if I left the house without my series of four I would turn back and get it like, I really miss it. When I forget to charge it, and I don't date around. It is. It's yeah. It was just the gym before this in this ways little upgrades that you forget about like, I'm running and it goes, hey, it looks like you're working out. You forgot to activate this. Do you wanna turn it on like, that's awesome? The G rating. I don't know if you've messed with it. I personally have. I mean, I don't like I've run all the time said don't really have heart stuff, but it's been very quirky and trying to get to measure, but it's not a feature. I'm really psyched about if you messed with that Chris with too much, you know, because I'm not really the kind of target for it right now. Anyway, I believe you in that. I don't think they have the software figured out which is this appointing because I do think that it's like a big selling feature for a lot of people, but I do trust that they'll get that like figured out and get that worked out. Yeah. But I think the battery life improving because I really liked the series three. I thought the series three was really really good in the series four. You know has better battery life. In even faster. But. Still the bigger screen, obviously. But I still think the series three was relate terrific device. But yeah, I mean, one of those things where a few years ago a lot of people were especially when the price or of coming down. We're just sanction. I get an apple washing. It was like, yeah. Get one, you know, it's kind of a glorified that bit. But whatever, and it is still a gore FAI bit. But it can do more things now that if you have the option of doing this other activity if you want to which is really useful. I use it all the time for Apple Pay. I use it for, you know, you know, boarding my planes things like that. I love using it to control music. I love it. Like, you said, I don't do as much working out as you do breathe. But I do love that. It will now recognize when I'm doing stuff me like, oh, I see that you're doing this. Do you want me to add as activity? I'm like, yes. Thank you. I am living. You know credit for. Yeah. No. It was a cool awfully and I definitely kind of like I walk more and do other things with the game. Affiliation of closing your circles is definitely a thing. It's it's a really good device. Nick did continue to make it really. They've refined it over the years. I think it's really good. So it sounds like we've come down to apple watch surface. Go I think is still in the running surface study studio two is still in the running in the air rap is still in the running. How do you guys feel about that? I feel like one of the things I like about rocket is the fact that we talk about things the rest of the tech industry won't. So I would understand a rocket listener saying, I don't think the Dyson air rap is technology enough for this. But I think it's made a big difference to my life. And I mean, it sounds like you like it to Chris. I love it. I love it. I mean, I got one from my sister. And she she loves it..

Apple's 5G iPhone reportedly won't arrive until 2020

"Twenty to start selling a five G powered iphone? That's according to a story from Bloomberg yesterday, which supports previous reports and apples typical strategy when a new network gets deployed. So Roger the first question I have is why would apple when a wait until twenty twenty. If you know, what is it? Same songs already making noise about creating five g phones were it's for Rizon AT and T next year. What's what's the benefit for them? The benefit is this is the standard apple playbook. They don't like to jump into need new technology quickly. They did as with wireless charging with apple mobile payments. They basically wait for the technology to mature to more people have it or comfortable with the idea make sure although the wrinkles have been ironed out, and then they jump in. They did this with three g they did four G. They were always about a year behind your and a half behind argue this time around with five being as given the excitement little fudgy, so high there's a lot of interest in it. It may not be the best move for apple to wait this long. But you've got a wake the cycles. Right. Like latoya nineteen if they're missing that. Then you've got to wait till the light twenty twenty five GI phone. You know, it's get apple apple Zappa l-. Do you think? So do you think that competitors would actually be able to steal customers away from them? Because of this like because I'm wondering if five G is really going to be much of a thing next year. Anyway. No that is a fantastic question. I think twenty twenty nineteen is one five g kicks off. But it won't be brought the vailable. You're right. It'll be a handful of cities that doesn't sit here and there and even within those cities just a few neighborhoods. It's gonna take a while for five year ramp up. So apple can make the argument that it's still not around. It's not probably they'll why are we going to invest it? Now, the character that is this whole five G ecosystem moving towards upgrading everything networks devices and apple does risk falling behind given that all these other companies are going to be a year or two more experienced in dealing with the issues. Five G. We talked gesture. Today about how five G wasn't gonna be perfect from the Geico. But in order to make it order improve the service, you've got actually get it out there. And so apple is going to be starting. We started late, but also gonna be starting kind of fresh whereas everyone else will have a bunch of years of five G work under their Bill. Yeah. Unfortunately, I think apple continues to benefit from the fact that they control their own ecosystem. So you'd have to get somebody. That's really excited about five Geeta actually jumped ship, and unfortunately, I think you know, Samsung and all the other competitors know that so we'll we'll see if they actually really the geeky geeks who are into five Jeep might make the move. But for most people, you're right. They're probably gonna stick to their IOSCO system. Yeah. So next I wrote about

But for most people, you're right. They're probably gonna stick to their IOSCO system. Yeah. So next I wrote about neighbors the neighbors app from rang, which is Amazon smart home company. The app is part of a new crop of social network like neighborhood watch apps. What was interesting to me about this was I got a chance to see some of the alleged crimes that were going on in my neighborhood. There was like some some folks that were apparently trying to break into car. Somebody was vandalizing outside streetlight. I mean like I live in a quiet neighborhood in New Jersey. And what's what's obvious to me is the benefits for companies like ring for having something like this because it could convince more people to buy brought basically like free advertising, right like checkout. All crimes your neighborhood, you really upgrade to a ring system. So I talked to an analyst about this. And he said that you have to draw very careful line if your ring for this kind of thing. Yeah. You wanna create a neighborhood watch app that actually has benefits for the neighborhood? And you don't want to just make it look like an advertisement because then it's just cynical and people aren't going to buy into it. But so far this this is serve like, it's almost like a social feed. And it's pretty entertaining. That's the thing is that, you know, if you get sick of like Facebook or like checking out like your other feeds you go on like the neighbors feed. And you're like, oh my God. I can't believe that's happening. So that's sure all that stuff. I mean, people love watching these kinds of videos, you got direct fee to them. I got I got a little obsessed with it.
