After i felt like we had explored a lot of the other stuff ultimately you know i i love all the music but there's stuff that i prefer over other things and i prefer to focus the time and energy into playing some of that.

I said a few nights ago recorded our hand i've represented. I was always very pessimistic. Is very wary of the potential from his eighties to to come back out of nowhere and stunned the formula one field and maintain its advantage from the previous seasons. But yeah i mean what. What a great drive from vistaprint. The there was a slight a slight down a slight negative aspect to it. It did make a mistake in key. One damaged his car and put not seemingly not enough christie reckons that it costs about one tenth for seconds in terms of each latte did after going over the cubs and damaging his floor. I'm an by By over three tenths of a second so you know he could have been even further ahead. Bob that just shows you how good that packages and and how well see bishop in eastern. It was just a fantastic fantastic drive in and again. Sergio perez out in key to in the other red blue. I mean obviously is a new car concept for him so he's gonna take a little while but it really does again show work good job.

Tenths ahead of lewis. Hamilton and various hamilton. Did say after. He gave everything he had so i not finding hot one qualifying session and we have a very long season ahead.

Red Bull Looking Strong at Bahrain Grand Prix Practice
"I. around bravo and joining me today to discuss everything is motorsport becomes editor jonathan noble. Now john how are you good. Thanks very much enjoyed today. Actually for for a friday practice session and we've had some boring ones in the past. I loved it. how did he find the show's format. I really liked actually. Because sometimes you an hour and a half. He often set there. That the teams will do nothing for the first twenty minutes so boring installation apps in the afternoon will be lost in long runs and Today there was no. They couldn't waste any time. They had to get out there to be doing stuff. I think what may happen is we may get a pattern. As the season progresses in terms of when they do new laws and old tires or long runs and short runs mixed up today but it was really frantic. had a little bit extra spice to it and you sense maybe teams have had to show a bit more bit more pace than they normally would like to on a friday. I feel like sessions had a lot more energy than we used to like he said and it was just nice to not have those gaps that you used to practice sessions where you just sitting around waiting for more to happen. Maybe it's just the excitement mean back of the cause on track. But i definitely loved it today now ahead of today. Of course one of the biggest topics was red bull locked and the fact. That mercedes want looking. Quite as good as what we're used to. Max zappa and topped the sheets for both sessions today. But what are your thoughts on. How right boy looking the looking strong. I mean i think. Sergio perez is first race weekend for red bull. Those kind of a big step for him to get in their new car new team new concepts all that sort of things He's he's admitted. Single outpaces lacking at the moment doesn't think he's at one with a car he's probably having to over. Think a little bit too much which suggests pacers and coming naturally to him. Which is he's ended up six. Tenths off max. Today but for max kind of the the perfect star
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art sets reopening date after a year of COVID-19 closure
"Exhibitions. Inside, those museums have sat mainly unseen by people in person. The L. A County Museum of art or lack money to name just one has lost millions of dollars during that time, those dollars by the way, helping to maintain collections and pay their staff and we'll help art in the community thrive. As of Monday, Lackman got the okay to open for indoor visits as covert case numbers continue to be on the decline. And Lackman is among a handful of museums that you can soon enjoy inside, masked and distance. Of course. Art INSIDER Lindsay Preston Zappa's is editor in chief of Contemporary Art Review. Los Angeles She's here to run down the openings or the re openings as it were in what you will actually be able to see when you go inside. Hey, Lindsay. Hey, Steve. Museums are back open. Yeah.

Because obviously, you know, we don't know what's gonna happen down the road, but we're hoping this is Better world or at least ah, more open world lack MMA announcing that they're gonna They're gonna open to a modified capacity inside 25% starting the first of April. That is obviously just a couple of weeks away, But there's Art inside those galleries. It's already up ready for people to see. I mean, well, you have to make an appointment to go. How's how's all this gonna work? Yeah, Exactly. There's a lot of details. As you can imagine that kind of need to be rearranged and reorganized. And this is such an exciting moment. L A has really been waiting for this. Go ahead. San Francisco was able to re open museums earlier this month. So l A art institutions have been very patient and also very frustrated as we've, you know, kind of waited to go back into this red tear that actually allows for museums to now re open. Um so lack. MMA is one of the first that I've seen to really announce a specific date and to roll out a very specific protocol of how they're going to be doing this. S o. They'll be using advanced time entry online tickets, eh? So you have to order your ticket ahead of time. You can't just show up to LACMA and buy a ticket on site. You have to order online by using the Internet or by calling and I read that tickets will be released in batches, so to be sort of one week at a time on, But first tickets go live on March 25th. So And then once you arrived to lack, Ma, you'll do an online health screening and also a temperature check. Um and you know, there's so many other protocols that they've listed as well. So they were clearly ready for this clearly waiting for this moment and waiting for the county to kind of give the green light and Yeah, they're ready to go with a plan. Mean Lackman.

The art of SEO with Stephan Spencer
"Tell us a little bit about how much things have changed. It's been quite a journey. Free has been a journey for all of us but Alan on this wild ride. That wasn't just an internet business journey. It was a personal transformation. Johnny to i'll. I'll get to that in a minute but from an internet marketing perspective. Yeah things have changed a lot. I remember using web position. Gold and thinking. Wow this is really having to make a separate version for every one of these search engines of the same content just feels really nikki to me and and wasteful and stupid and. I just did not like doing that. And didn't do much of it because they hated it so much and thankfully that was something that just got became irrelevant when google came along when Actually when backrub came line which became google. Can you believe that was the name of of kids to their dorm room looking to name things. Funny thing names you know so. I just fell in love with google and wanted to figure out how to reverse engineer it and at the time we were building ecommerce websites as the primary business but baking. Seo into those websites became a fiction of ours and and for me in particular and then i realized that there are a lot of other kinds of websites out there and bigger businesses who would never hire a small agency to build an ecommerce site for them. Because maybe it's a huge brand like target dot com or something so we wanted to offer audits and standalone seo consultancy services beyond just making it into an ecommerce website build and That was back in two thousand or so two thousand two thousand and one and We've been cash. it's been It's been a long road and there've been a lot of google updates and it's not about chasing after the latest update. It's like driving a car using only the rear view mirror. If that's the case and my thet ford to the future of future proofing year Your business and Online business your website and so that would involve things like a and Scalable strategies things of course need to be pearly white hat not just pretty white hat and is to be you know super super white and stuff that you're comfortable sharing with google engineers and saying here's what i'm doing if there's anything you're at all not comfortable with you should reevaluate something. You are happy to to show off to google engineer or Be happy for your competitor. Discover when they're reverse engineering what you're up to in terms of seo than yeah you should reevaluate it. You've said you've mentioned reverse engineering a lot in the first couple minutes of this help take part of reverse of your career has reverse engineering big. Sounds like it's a big. Yeah so i figured out at pretty early stage in in my business career that i could not just reverse engineer google's algorithm but kind of Put a middleware layer between my clients website and the greater internet and thus i could Kind of search and replace real time things that were not search engine optimized on the core website but i would like to search engine optimize it and serve it up to and needed a proxy kind of middleware layer in order to do that. Because if i were to do that on the Let's say blue martini. If you remember that platform install it would take many minds. And maybe a million dollars to implement the changes that i wanted to see on the live site and so i invented a proxy reverse proxy technology Back in two thousand and three called gravity stream and that actually became the majority revenue producing component or part of the agency and a. It was a big reason why i was able to sell the agency in two thousand and ten because that was Like majority of the revenue was performance based pricing. We had client for example. zappa's We charge seven figures in Pay for performance Spend in a year's time because we were generating that much value for them. We charged on a cost per click basis. Fifteen cents a click so everybody wanted to sign up because folks who doesn't want pay for performance if you don't get the performance you don't get the value you don't pay for it so we bring that back down to kind of our core audience which is really people that are just learning about see. Oh just trying to understand how to get better at seo. What can they do at their level. What kind of things would make sense for them to try to reverse engineer without these big multi million dollar tools. Is there something they can do as as new people to really help them totally leverage yeah totally just off the cuff. Some examples here just doing a simple. Google search can help you to reverse engineer. Let's say what buzzfeed is doing in order to get so many links and and so much Click through nee click throughs. It's the the hook and the headline. That's kind of their secret sauce. They have the pick really good Images and they write the articles. Well and you know come up with great quizzes and all that as well but really it starts with the hook and then the headline and if you want to reverse engineer what they're doing as inspiration to raise your own viral content link worthy of viral content. So that you can get like they get. You might put in your topic. Plus site colin buzzfeed dot com in as a google search. And see what comes up as The articles and and the headlines if you want to get a little fancier with it you could do in title colon and then the topic. There's no space after the coal by the way so entitled colon plumbing for example if you're plumber and then site colon buzzfeed dot com. It's so simple. And yet you're aren being essentially ripping off in duplicating But i like. I said with using it as inspiration not copy and paste so. Let's actually do that. Site colon buzzfeed dot com and then in title colon plumbing or vice versa. Doesn't matter the order can do entitled i or cyclone i seven expert plumbing tips to keep in mind. This thanksgiving The race is on for plumbing at the push of a button. What was thanksgiving interesting. Yeah i was going to blow in me to wait a minute plumbing.

Buffalo Springfield's Mr Soul Brings Back Memories
"Unless it to a song I haven't thought about since my childhood, which is where I always travel back to on the weekends. And for what must have been the 30th time, I'm listening to a song from buffalo Springfield back in the 60s. It's a really nasty, hard psychedelic song called mister soul. And I'm sure a lot of you knew right away what that is. Others have no idea. I'm going to put a YouTube video of it on the Facebook page. And singing lead vocals on this song is none other than Neil Young, obviously he was one of the big stars of buffalo springs. Buffalo Springfield. Buffalo full Springsteen buffalo Springfield. Now I'm not a big giant fan of Neil Young. Outside of a few songs. But the ones I do like, I really like a lot. Like powder finger or harvest moon. And more on those in a bit. But Neil Young just fucking destroys this song, mister Seoul. I'm watching a documentary on Netflix Friday night called echoes in the canyon. And it was a great peek into how amazing the music scene was here in Southern California. Especially off this long windy road that we all know here called Laurel canyon. And back in the back in the day, everybody who was anybody in music lived there. The Beach Boys, Frank Zappa, Jackson Brown, the birds, The Mamas & the Papas, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. Tons more. And it even got increasingly more popular into the 70s, but what they created in this two or three year period is absolutely unbelievable. It's clearly the best music of that generation. And for those of you who don't know, Laurel canyon is a twisty road that and it's also got a lot of break offs, a lot of like what they call a capillary road that split off and into just wild directions, you know, most of which are cul de sacs and some really beautiful homes. But it's a road that goes over the mountains and on one side it could empty you out into the valley where people like me live or if you go the other way, it can put your right into the heart of Hollywood right on sunset boulevard. It dumbs off at sunset boulevard. So back in the day, these artists, they all played clubs on the strip, like the troubadour, whisky, a go go. And when they were done, crowds of people who went to see them, but all like drive up Laurel canyon, and then it wasn't that hard to find the house on the houses, and they just drive up to the typical the musician's house. And the party would continue. They'd break out their instruments, people would sit around, and it became like, you know, another 12 hour party.
Bobby Sharma on the Recent Esports Survey
"Show is focusing on a study published in mid November, which is an annual look at the E Sports industry the studies conducted by Foley & lardner law firm and specifically fully Sports Entertainment Group where Bobby is a special advisor home study was also conducted a partnership with the Esports Observer. This is the third year the study would you introduce hundreds of Executives around Esports? I will go through all the findings here at all, like the full report below the show, but some of them That's that were of Interest Who did that 73% of survey respondents expect to see increased investment in Esports a Zappa demek wide Stewart head over Q4 2020 and q1 20-21 the study also touched on gambling house additional Sports could use Esports and better ways and a lot more interesting Insight from leading Executives across the US and Europe. Primarily Bobby took the different findings in the report was there would start that really stood out to you something that surprised you. What's what's all the data was done collected. I don't think anything surprised me. I think I mean this is a really interesting survey that fully laden has been conducting now for three years and it gets even more interesting with each passing year to see the evolution of the industry at least a perception of the the evolution of the industry in real time. But last year, you know looking at Trends is always really interesting last year. I think we saw a more mature birth. Level of investment come in in the sense that you had more private Equity Capital than Venture Capital than in the past which makes sense given that the sports industry is young but quickly maturing and there there seemed to be a lot more long-term Value Place for investors the pandemic of course thrown a wrench into everything and not you know to answer your question or directly. I'm not surprised that the findings of this survey basically are mixed in that of course, like all sports media and entertainment properties Esports has taken a hit to some extent because of the massive disruption because of covid-19 and depend emack that that's that's basically disrupted, you know, any any events or oriented business and whereas a lot of people understand these boards to live largely online the reality is that you log Culture lives, you know very much in person at large Gatherings and Arenas and stadiums and and in smaller scale type of event so that that's had a direct impact to the revenue but I say mixed because throughout this pandemic there has been certainly a perception that Esports has thrived and it's definitely true to a certain extent. It's been terrific for the Publishers because more people are playing video games more people have more time in the day because they're not competing or you know are at home where a lot of these things are consumed and participated in and no part of our survey questions and and the narrative that you mentioned you're linking that we put together from the results speaks to to those Trends where we've had some of the media companies reporting, you know web traffic up wage. 75% in terms of gaming you've had certain situations where you've had, uh, you know gambling become, you know, what will I'm sure we'll speak to that later become an actual regulated phenomenon for Esports that wasn't in the past because of in part because of the absence complete absence in the second quarter of this year of any traditional Sports at all to bet on so it's it's been I'd say the good is outweighed the bad and I think that's that's where the the survey Nets out for Esports and that it's it's taken a hit but a minor and it's it's poised for more growth going forward relative to traditional Sports, which is I think what makes these Sports so amazing is that it has such a big and under monetized and young and negatively digital Highly Educated High disposable income audience that everybody wants to to to connect with so long. So yeah, I think both the for the good and the bad good outweighing the bad the results are not too surprising and nothing really surprising to me. I should say
Business Community Mourns the Loss of Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh
"Tony shay was a rarity a business. Executive who was almost universally beloved shade died november twenty seventh at the age of forty six following injuries sustained in a house. Fire connecticut home. His death prompted outpourings of stories about shay's unusual and unusually successful approach to business for twenty years. he was. ceo zappa dot com the online shoe and clothing retailer. He let it with philosophy summed up in the two word title of his best selling book delivering happiness in two thousand ten. He told cbs news. He believed it was possible to make customers. Employees and investors happy while still turning a profit which he did in spades amazon acquired zappa's dot com in two thousand nine for one point two billion dollars shea invested in the online shoe cite zappa's dot com. Then call shoe site dot com in nineteen ninety nine a young entrepreneur. He had already founded in grown and online. Advertising site called link exchange a year earlier at the age of twenty four. He sold link exchange to microsoft for two hundred sixty five million dollars shortly after investing in shusei dot com. He became ceo and the company changed. Its name to zappa's taken from the spanish word for shoes ocado when she was initially pitched on investing in shoe site dot com. He was skeptical in nineteen ninety nine. The beginning of the internet bubble ecommerce was still young and untested. conventional wisdom. Was that you couldn't sell shoes online. Because customers were used to try on shoes before buying them but then she learned that five percent of shoe buyers already purchase shoes from catalogs. That's five percent of what was then a forty billion dollar market that persuaded shea to take a crack at online shoe sales even though he later told cbs news. I'm not a shoe person at all. Rather he would wear one pair for two years until they wore out and then by another to conquer the hurdle that customers needed to try on shoes shape pioneer to custom. We take for granted today. Zappa's would ship for free and allow returns for a year. It was not uncommon for customers to order five pairs of shoes in return for. That was okay with shay. He wanted customers for life to that end. He invested in domestic call center workforce rather than outsourcing to countries with cheaper labour famously. He empowered those customer support employees to do whatever they needed to make customers happy. There are no time limits on phone calls one. Possibly apocryphal story was that a worker stayed on the phone with one customer. For more than five hours. Critics wondered how zappa's could make money by investing so much in the people who answered the phones after all only about five percent of customers ordered on the phone the rest purchased online shea. Believe however that the phone was branding opportunity customer service by workers who bent over backwards to help them would be customers forever and of course they tell others about their experiences in addition he wanted his employees to be so happy that they would consider working at zappa's a calling not a career. He went so far as to offer to pay new employees to quit. The offer received a few weeks into a new job. Ranged from about one thousand to three thousand dollars the idea. He didn't want employees to stay if they weren't passionate about the job and the culture his quirky management technique became widely known simply as the offer growth was swift in two thousand revenues. Were about one point. Six million dollars by the time of the sale nine years later revenues had reached a billion dollars after the amazon acquisition shea. Stayed on as ceo. He retired last summer. Devoting himself to an economic development project in las vegas where he lived under shays. Leadership amazon is said to have allowed zappa's to remain as independent as an amazon acquisition. Could be recently. However the company's begun integrating it more fully offering prime rewards to zappa's customers the idea to help it. Maintain competitiveness against chains like dsw owned by conglomerate designer brands with several hundred warehouse stores. Nationwide dsw's one of the largest shoe retailers in america it consistently plies customers with loyalty discounts and coupons in an effort to get them to return to its brick and mortar stores again and again but cova closures hit designer brands. Hard in the second quarter which offers first sales fell. Almost in half third quarter results will be released next week. Twenty years after a young tony shay became convinced that yes you could sell shoes online. He turned out to be not only unconventional but prescient in a pandemic. it may be about the only place to sell them in a statement following shays death zappa. Ceo kadosh dish.

In 'Sound Of Metal,' Sudden Hearing Loss Sends A Drummer Reeling
"Santa metal stars. I'm ed as a rock drummer to lose his hearing. It is the feature debut for director darius that means it might be worthy of golden brick consideration atom. i know you've seen now Would that be accurate. Well i i do want to note that i also saw zappa and i think it's really good certainly a little bit rousing and undoubtedly competently made by alex winter so recommendation there but i also definitely got my music fix in sound of metal. Even though the music part of it isn't really what the story is about and i think we will probably or at least i will talk more as we get into the end of year award season about the performances. Here on med. But someone i had never seen on screen before. Maybe a couple credits to his name. An actor named paul racy who plays i guess kind of his his counselor and his caretaker. After a meds character. Reuben does go death and has to find a place really to be taught how to exist in a world as a deaf man and that performance by paul racy was one that i think is among my favorite of the year josh in a supporting role and sound metals. Definitely golden brick material. What i will say is it takes a really bold approach in terms of its overall artistic design and certainly in terms of its sound design which is from the very beginning it orients itself around the perspective of ahmet. There are instances of it that orient you as a viewer from sort of objective. Point of view. This is what an outsider might be experiencing or seeing play out for the most part in a way that i think for some viewers could be jarring. It was even jarring or difficult at times for me. For the most part you are always experiencing the world as resides character. Ruben experiences the world and so if you're someone who's behind a drum set and you're pounding away. While his girlfriend and collaborator as a musician is at the front of the stage. she's performing we really only hear her kind of wailing and the sound of her instrument the way he would hear it behind the drum set and similarly then as he starts to lose his hearing and then he loses it completely. There are many scenes the play out completely without sound where we only do experience it as viewers as he is in that moment and i do think it really pays off here so probably more say and there will be more to come on sound of metal here in the next month or so but for now i definitely want to recommend it. I think it's absolutely a golden brick nominee or should be on the shortlist. I know that we did that. Special here. just over thanksgiving and had a bunch of titles already we were throwing into. The mix of metal definitely belongs there. I'm curious what you and listeners. Think gets playing exclusively on amazon

Nike stock surges 10% as fiscal 2021 revenue is expected to rise
"We're GONNA start with some earnings and no better place to start then Nike shares of Nike up twelve percent and hitting an all time high. After Nike issued a first quarter report that was highlighted by what else? Amazing. Digital. Sales. Although I should say their their profits did come in much higher than expected to. Yeah, Nike Hat Prophets of ninety six cents per share versus the forty seven that was expected. So they definitely beats on both the top and the bottom lines and depending on how you read this earnings report and the story that you're telling you can paint two very different pictures for Nike. Here skeptics will tell you that their total revenue year-over-year still fell eight percent despite the fact that it was up on a quarterly basis. So this was by no means a blowout quarter in terms of their top line, but if you. Look at the bigger picture, Nike has been changing their distribution strategy, and so the fact that sales weren't down more when they cut so many large distribution partners over the past few months is actually pretty astounding and what we're seeing the market react to here in my opinion is actually the stellar growth online sales online sales grew eighty two percent more than doubling in certain regions of the world. So this is really a testament not only to renewed demand for Nike's products, but it's a good first step in a changing distribution strategy. We also saw that show up in in their inventory and the way they're managing their inventory. It was a little bit of a challenge last quarter they brought some of that down this quarter so nice to see that improvement. Also, seems like Nike is optimistic about the holidays is that fair to say Definitely. Fair to say what's notable about where you saw their sales come in this quarters is that despite the overall contraction compared to the year ago period sales for footwear, their footwear division, which is really core Nike still grew. So I think they're optimistic about renewed demand especially heading into the holiday season but more importantly especially because they put so much emphasis on to their digital sales, which is really going to be what catalyze people to order people. I think it's safe. Assumption are not going to be traveling as much. This holiday season potentially not going to be giving gifts that they aren't able to order online as much as they were last. Year. So the fact that Nike has reinvested so much money into really connecting direct to consumers and a manner that establishes a more of a relationship between Nike and consumers is potentially going to be good for them and holiday sales. But what's worth pointing out here is that they did cut a lot of partners we talked about it previously, but they cut ZAPPA's they cut dillard's so their foot traffic, the people walking into a store and buying a pair of Nikes that's probably going to be down for the foreseeable future they're going to need to prove that they can pull those customers back in to their digital sales to make it worth it. And this is something they've been investing a lot in over the last few years. So I mean this this is one of those quarters where you see those investments pay off but to your point, this is. When you when you cut off partnerships like that. Then, you're doing so with the confidence that you're going to be able to make it up on your own. and. That wasn't an a political decision in the sense that. Seemed like Nike shareholders were split down the middle about whether or not they believed cutting their partners and their distribution wholesalers really were was the best move for the company I tend to be on the side of I like Nike controlling more of their line controlling their relationship with consumers I. Think long term that can give them some pricing power but I have no doubt in. My mind that short term, you're going to see the impact in terms of their top line growth at the margin profile long-term improves as a result but let's be clear here cutting out what they deemed to be lower tier wholesalers to focus on specialized partnerships that was not a move that was universally perceived to be beneficial to the company. It really was a change interest Egypt. Direction.

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?

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

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 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.

It's possible that any Imitating aspect of my personality is a figment of their imagination. Not Suffering projected. I think you're right there. 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.

Said you're also a guy who wrote who wants Wrote a song about having sex with the root of bega all that volume of accurate. 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.

"Whether you worked hard on it or it's the result of somebody with a cassette machine in the back of somebody's buying things. I have a problem with that. Obviously your lot more generous than a lot of other artists in terms of putting out A lot of product for people to buy. But you don't see any Reason that that can you? Could you think of yourself as a fan and wanting more than the artists? Put out to buy these bootlegs I can understand what the fans motivation is. But whether or not think it's satisfied at the point where they spend the money for the bootleggers. The question because I think a lot of lakes or just ripping them off the sound quality so bad and some of them have tried to make themselves look like official recordings like releasing them on an icy a label and sort of misleading information on the packages to make it look like I actually had something to do with. Why aren't you cleaning the sound up on On these bootlegs well we did to. A certain extent of this stuff was stolen. Back from the vinyl source. Leads spent quite a bit of time. Chopping out the record clicks digital editing system and They've been cute a little bit but basic idea was to steal it. All back covers an all solid progress. To what do you think about Bands like the grateful. Dead who basically encouraged bootlegging What they encourage is Self taping great. I'm a little. They encourage somebody else to Put their performance on vinyl or CD and sell it. I guess I guess that's the difference. I mean they put up a section in their concerts. Were of a guy comes in their cassette machines ensure court here. That's different than saying yet. Mister Entrepreneur. Hot there in the league someplace. Make your on Fake grateful dead album and sell it and collect the royalties. That's another story altogether. I don't think the grateful dead wants you to do that.

The fact is we've spent God knows how many trillion since the cold war began fighting communism. Okay they collapses under its own weight right before your very eyes. And what do we do? You remember. What Bush's response was when the Berlin Wall came down kind of like a whole home. There's something that smells bad here.

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.

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.

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.

Tons of tons of products foods of trinkets, lots of things there. So come and join us for green fast downtown Summerlin, April. Twentieth. Ten to five so today, we're talking with John from Zappa tells a little bit about yourself. John your background? And how'd you got involved with sustainability? What's your job? It's apples. So my mic. My coral is apoptosis customer loyalty team. And we are the folks if you get soda from Zappa's, you get two left shoes you call our team. Will you make right for you? Oh, there's a poem. So there's a there's there's ways that we can spread our wings as opposed to a really proud of that tradition as EPO. So if you have a passion, and it doesn't turn the company backwards and actors one or more of our core values, we get the green light to go. And my first step out of my Korhola was the leaf program and leave stands for leading environmental awareness for our future. And it's a passion for passions for projects. It's it's totally not paid. It's all volunteer force. And I was given the the lead lead link role. So we have the chance to have our advocates out in our community and engage our community with all kinds of services, we team up with nonprofits we team up with our local infrastructure like a rebel Serb Republic services southwest gas, and we have our birthday festivities on board. We also have our big film festival. We sponsor though, while the Senate film festival firm friends of our wilderness. So we've got a lot on a lot on the plate you do. So that's great. So tell me about Zach Posen how. How are they sustainable? What are they we have we've worked with nonprofits quite a bit. And we take ours. Poignant saw well. For example, went down to Huntington harbour yesterday and bid at big cleanup pulled out four hundred seventy six pounds of trash in somebody's lawn chair. We did it all on kayaks and paddle boards too. So we have a lot of fun. So we also engage. Our opponents in maybe changing our lifestyle habits on insides Apple's campus, and we are able to engage agents so much that they can take those practices from campus to their homes as well. And maybe teach their children the same same practices that we hopefully can teach them on campus as well. So not we know that not everybody comes to the plate with the same kind of education or training. So some know about sustainability some don't so we have to make sure that those pieces are built head, and we provide those for our advocacy program as those that's great tell us a little bit about Tony Shay. You're you're fearless leader. I shared a mohawk story with have so both him. And I were there at the only ones that report Mohawks for a while. Is apple? So it's pretty cool. But beyond that, Tony is fantastic. He is I've personally feel that Zappala says it's a incubator for aerial ship. We have a chance to grow ourselves twenty provides that avenue for us. He's a super super CEO. I just I love the guy is super for everybody to just have the chance to meet this guy is just it's it's without question. One of the most admired real experiences you could ever have. But he allows everybody to just grow themselves turn to ten themselves into what they want what they want to be. If you have a passionate like I said, if it doesn't turn our company backwards ashes one or more of those core values, we have the chance to make those those passions girl. So a little more about your background. Where'd you come from share? So few years ago. I stepped stepped away from twenty one years with the air force had a great career there. And through that the tail end of that career. I was in a program where we had to look at our recycling and sustainability programs within our squadron those those those project. Right. There is what's installed the the passions of mine who wants to gear up not just the the the material. But the person the person power behind those those projects and find out what you know, what really makes people tick behind that what really gets people to get behind these projects. And I found out that there's a lot of want to. It's just the direction of how to get people into those into these avenues of of of making those avenues approachable and to -able, and so through Zappa's it just elevated again, we're able to pro-choice nonprofits and gets help from let's say green alliance and and find out what they're doing and how we can team up and make those projects kind of similar on southbound. We also engineer our own programs inside, and we share those with green alliance as well. Our friends of Nevada wilderness are the Huntington Arbor surfrider foundation, and we share those ideas. And so those those just manifest great great values, and we can share those whether community in our in our insiders Apple's campus as well. Well, I know it's apples is probably globe. As far as delivery. What are you guys doing outside of Las Vegas to help the planet outside Las Vegas? We're trying to well we have a carbon offset program.
