There's a lot of people actually on kevin harvick side because they want to see more of that. Heart racing for the lead like what kevin and chase were doing. I think in some ways even among ardent chase elliott fans. He gained a little bit more allegiance. Because for the first time we've seen flip people off and get mad but alexis he got in the face of one of nascar's biggest names and ida i. He didn't blink. I mean i think even what you know taking into account obviously what happened on pit road and then what happened You know by the haulers afterwards but what happened on the race. Track you know. He said i'm not gonna take this anymore. I'm gonna stick up for myself and you know. He did what he thought was right. He took away his line. He allowed his team mate To be able to take a win away from somebody who has been You know yearning for a win all season long. I mean there's arguably not many people in in the cup field on saturday that needed a win or wanted to win more than kevin harvick. And i think that's why you saw all of that emotion. Come out from from him and then chases like look. He did it to me at darlington. I'm not gonna take it anymore. People wanna see that personality from chase they wanna see that fire and that desire and i think They loved seeing it saturday night.

It wasn't done deliberately but at you know this is something you're going to have to get used to During this playoff time especially between these two drivers like. I say they don't like each other. Because i do not think kevin respects chase and annot chase does not totally respect kevin. So there's gonna be an issue here and about the helmet. I wanna put one thing to rest. My football coach told me a long time ago. If we ever have bitch clearing deal and get in a fight with the other tank. Don't take your helmet off. If they wanna hit you in a face mask. let them have at it. Okay so kevin. Not no dummy. He's not afraid of them. You saw that. After the fact he went down there and they had more words with new homeless owner ahead. So y'all just get off the helmet deal. Kev is not a dummy alright. So keep that helmet on and by the way in.

Oh you know you're gonna find yourself in that scenario there so basically you just gotta do one game winning drive right and they bare minimum. They got themselves a fifty seven yard field goal in that situation. So it's really hard to say much about the cowboys here. Then they avoided a disaster. Six george how about you. I mean who knew andre the giant reincarnated as a cameraman that didn't allow the coordinator scoreboard. But here's what is better to be lucky than good. That's the statement here. Because the chargers charge they do this all the time they had six plays okay. Six first downs in two touchdowns called back by their own penalties over.

Ruth Wisse Discusses the Book Daniel Deronda and Its Insight Into Liberalism in England
"You were asking a before about how if i teach yiddish literature how i would have come to be giving talks and a series of lectures daniel dorando which is a book written by. I think one of the greatest british writers george elliott. It is a book however about the jews and it is one of the most astonishing Inciteful brilliant books imaginable. I can. I think you can spend a lifetime on it. The way one can with certain novels of dusty eski so first of all about this idea that people now have. You shouldn't appropriate something else. You shouldn't write about white. People shouldn't about blacks and nobody should write about his fashion where sombrero tan. Or any of that. That i do so think about this her last novel. This great writer writes about the jewish question. Essentially she's also rhyming but the woman's question but she sees the connection between the woman 's question and the jewish question in england of her time. What is her problem. Why does she turn to that. Well it seems to me that what she was really worried about is what you were asking what is happening to liberalism in england. How can one preserve liberalism in england as it is and she saw that one of the keys to it is what is going to be your relation to the jews if you cannot accept the jews as jews then you cannot really be a great liberal and she saw how difficult it was for people to accept that yes so there's this wonderful family that she creates in the novel the mayor rick family which is so hospitable they meet this jewish girl and they wanna take her in and they were the the boy the if the family wants to marry her. The girls want to adopt her. They love her. They love her and they say tur- you know you wouldn't even have to be christian and she. She says something. you wouldn't even have to be jewish. Jesus that's the first cruel thing that you have ever said to me. And so the so. The book is really Built around this idea of britain of england how it can accept the jewishness of the jews.

Will Your Company Embrace the Covid-19 Productivity Revelation?
"Something been sitting comments. A couple of days ago is really stuck with me. What he said was a number of companies have realized during this covered nineteen pandemic and this work from home situation that the work that used to get done in eight hours in the office is now getting done in two to four hours at home and whilst no that's not true for all companies of course for a lot of companies and a lot of businesses i think it is and so the question for me is what are you going to do as a business. If that's true for you if you've actually realized that you can get the work done in half the time in a four hour day you can now complete an eight hour days work in the old days. You've now got four hours free per day per person. So what are you gonna do with that. I to just try and go back to normal and insist that your employees still sit there for that extra four hours or are you gonna find more work for them to do in squeeze squeeze more out of their four hours or maybe you can actually split it. Maybe give them two hours off. Let them go home. Two hours early and get an extra two hours of productivity out of the in the office even if they're only converting that fifty percent so we're actually really only getting one real productive time out of them. We're still now a bitter off than we were before. And so i reckon there's a massive opportunity for those companies that choose to embrace the revelation that covert has forced upon us. Which is we haven't been that productive in the office and if you can embrace that as a company and then maybe get a little bit more out of your employees while you're there but also give them something back and by letting them go a couple of hours elliott do something else on their own time in the office during that extra couple of hours that they were otherwise. Just wasting time with anyway. Then i think the returns to you as a company and a business will come back many fold in the short term and frankly obviously in the long term as well.

Bakersfield, and enters an endless series of. Oil derricks and And Orange Trees. That goes on for about ninety minutes. the the freeway just turns into a you know a narrow. Nothingburger for a long time, but right before that. There's a really cheap arco like to stop for Gas and you know what. Maybe I'll get some sour cherry balls to. Great gas station snack, so I stopped there and. It's a pretty sizable gas station. You know there's probably nine pumps three sets a three. I'm going to say. and. CATTY corner from me directly in my line of sight, but on the other side of the on the other side of the pumps and a little further ahead of me. Was a woman getting out of her car. And you know how sometimes you stop at the gas station, and that's your chance to clear the trash out of your car. You just dump it there in the in trash candidate on the island. It's a great place to get rid of trash because he. It's yeah, it is. That's the great. It's a great place to get rid of our trash I like I love that you were about to explain why you're about to go into the points of it and a place where you can drive your car up to a trash can and just sit there in glen all your trash out. It is a great place. Cards. I only explication necessary I have been self conscious lately about people I know seeing me cleaning out my car trash I think. Listen I'm I. Am I'm not a man who looks cool often. I I. have. Never taken a picture of myself I move awkwardly throughout the world. But I feel like I. AM at my most. Gelatinous when I have an armload of car trash when I have like a kind bar wrappers. And and five target good and gather seltzer cans I. Think I feel like a monstrous bell ringer when I am carrying car trash, have you ever? Where you stop, and you open up your car and just like. Three or four half empty water bottles out. Yeah, grounds deal. That's just terrible. Yeah, you really feel like your life is a mess in that it's gotten away from you and I I will sometimes clean out my car trash at like at the public pool before my swim team and like just. Because of the. Pools filters you say as you throw cans. Soda Cans I am so like because because of how generally good-looking everybody on the swim team is, I am so afraid of one of them seeing me. Dragging my car trash, my target bag full of rappers out of the car. Anyway so yeah, that's why I love to do it. At the gas station fewer little little chance somebody. You know, we'll see you, so there is a move you have to do when you're climbing out of the car. If you're so they the simplest way to get rid of the trash is going to be you get out of the car. You put the pump in you. Start Pumping, and then you go you circle back and you gather your trash and throw it away while the gas pumps. Yeah, it's a good use of time. This woman was doing an advanced move. Which is where you climb out while holding the trash in one of your hands. But, it was a sizeable trash in for a moment. I couldn't see what it was. And then it was kind of like. My eyes did a focusing take like. We won't like in and out with the Camera Lens like is that what I think it is? And what she was lifting as she was climbing out of her car to go pump her gas. Was the bottom part of a clam shell packaging. The plastic clam shell packaging, but only the bottom part, and in it was half a rotisserie chicken carcass. I like significant meat on the bone. No Lid. So she had to hold it waiter style as she climbed out. Just just much, but not most of a rotisserie chicken Wow, telling me is that this woman is? This woman is living my dream of being able to drive I'll just tearing chicken meat off of a chicken, carcass and stuffing in my mouth while I drive I presume. She had like a dashboard mount for it. She must because it's not gonNA fit on if it's on top of cupholder, it's GonNa slide right off the first time. You have to peel out to get away from some bikers that are mad at you. What Elliott Elliott Elliott the the first rule of chicken in the car is the color. That's where you're putting your sides. We're putting your Coleslaw. Baked Beans Potato Salad. Salad will eat with your hands because you can't have a fork in a car. That's crazy or sports, even but that you'd have to have some sort of trae the dashboard, and then you'd have to what secure it with clips of some kind like carrier, or you know like like a baby changing I. Imagine this website. It's like a one of those fold down baby changing tables in a public bathroom. That's on her. Her Dashboard but it's the length of a child, but of a chicken plus container rand. She can just kind of hook the chicken belt. The chicken in that's probably the she didn't eat was where the was where the belt was over. And because you don't Wanna eat the belt me, that's gross. The bulk of course you can detach from the car laundrette shirts. It gets pretty greasy, but and that she would just. Steer with one hand and just grabbed the pull the chicken with the other. Because you don't want to get the chicken grease on your understand wheel because again how you're GonNa? See a real fast, so you can get away from those bikers who are so mad at you if the wheel is slipping through your hands, because it's so covered in Cheickna. Wait been bikers this whole time that I get that part of the story. I mentioned the most before, but okay. Sorry. Sorry. I need experience. It's a common experience that bikers get Matt Hey. Hey, what do you? What do you think you're doing dude? And then if something escalates the part where you have to peel out and get out of there fast, you Scott you scuffed. Harley, they'll say exactly my. Hog Bikers aren't afraid to use rough language. Like what are you doing, dude? And the, and the only still of course, the only strong point is that with the bikers behind you that someone between you and the federal agents who are already chasing you and the alien. It's in your backseat. It's the alien in the backseat who of course inadvertently insulted the bikers while trying to befriend them? And that's why you gotta get out of there fast because you already again have an extraterrestrial life form, who though cute, does not understand human mores and. And is just pissing off. Bikers left and right, but at the same time you've got this chicken on the dash that you just just from at will and I guess that's certainly if I'm driving. I'm not going to be able to to D- meat chicken the way that I can when I'm sitting at a table, which is what I call a table that's not in a car and just sits there and doesn't move This is a mobile table car. I'm not going to be able to like again. Really go at it with the because you guys I think have both seen me eat chicken. You know that I just demolish it and it's just like you know heathcliff. Ever be able to introduce our legislation. Elliott! Filibuster till his throat is sore. Which reminds me of a story one of my constituents still. then. Stabbed, he's dabbing his forehead with a handkerchief that means he's going to be added for another four hours. You'll you don't know? Is that I wore a diaper to the session today, so I can go on? Is Anybody here? So anyway, wait. Your other character congressional baby. Now. That's the thing congressional secret is. He's always wearing a diaper. I'm of are sewing. His he has to secrets always wearing a diaper so I can always filibuster, and also I've been accepting a wad of money from a certain chemical company that. Tax Breaks for. Fast tracking a few regulation permissions for them to build plants next to school. Toward. But so did you guys have something else who I will just finish? All right fair I thought that was I thought you saw this woman carrying a chicken and that was. That was the full dote. No, so I will I will say that the that the I think the cinema of our childhood, the TV and Cinema. Childhood really really misrepresented. How often you're GONNA run into a biker gang. Since in my life, I think it's been zero times. No, that's not true well. How would you explain run in witnessing? Would that count or just like you know just like running afoul like having to avoid them? Yeah I just thought that was just like the main problem with adulthood. biker gangs and quicksands. Two things rarely ever see out there anyway to say nothing of rodents of unusual size. So I went into the I went into the article.

"When it comes to business in the office keeping it simple okay so let's talk about them paragraphs two and three so reducing office hours good idea no doubt about that okay this will work for most the organizations okay now again I'm generalizing if you have an exception that comes to mind which there are many if you have a retail store you're going to need someone there Covering the store okay from whatever your hours are you have to have at least one person covering this door when customers come at all right so obviously that would not apply to this in this act for me format but for most offices this will work this this will apply now let's dive deeper let's cover some larger points that are that are not mentioned so why limited here's my question why limit from eight to one k. what's the gains here this cuts to the heart of one of the biggest issues I see with organization and with businesses and that is this they do not treat their people as adult it's insane to me I can't for the life of me understand this so let's put it in perspective take for example someone who's been part of Your Team Your Organization for let's say just just six months you've spent probably thousands and thousands of dollars to recruit them okay just to find this person just to get them in the door just to interview them you've probably spent thousands of dollars Okay then you spend let's say you select that person you hire that person they agree then you spend thousands and thousands of of of energy of hours excuse me and dollars to train this person six months go by your continuing to train continuing to invest you spent thousands and thousands of dollars in salary benefits perks I mean so you're into a new hire for so much money and just six months I'm just saying I'm using six months because it's such a brief amount of time you've had someone for six months that's how much you've put into them right why do we not feel like you can why do you and I'm talking to managers right now managers out there you executives you business owners okay the leadership teams have companies you're you're being talked to right now so listen up why do you not feel like you can trust that person you just did and spent all this money with you agreed with your team that you would hire him or her this we'll be great let's hire them why do you not feel like you should treat this person as an adult as a professional to real question think about it it makes no sense what so ever whatsoever it makes none okay none whatsoever so let's jump to paragraph four so the article goes on to say still there some trade offs Reagan said that the workplace should be as Focus and distraction for his possible small talk is discouraged social media and cell phones are banned company email emails are to be checked nobre on twice a day no meetings are scheduled to last more than fifteen minutes for me any workers changes like these would be more than welcomed can than the article goes on for a few more paragraphs and Kinda sums it up in wraps pretty quick caso paragraph for a couple of thoughts on this I understand the owner stock processor processor excuse me I understand the owners thought process he's thinking if I'm giving up three hours per day all right I'm going into a five hour work day as opposed to eight or nine hour day then is the owner expect everyone to cut back on social media small talk personal phone calls Lsu whatever I'm just adding thinks that would probably come into this right I can understand that I do From from an effectiveness standpoint I don't understand it at all all it makes no sense once again because ultimately here's my here's my crux with ultimately these changes in paragraph four these things were saying no social media talk where you're taking away ultimately from the strength of any organization and what is that the ultimate strength the people of the organization Hugh Rise and fall on your people and you rise and fall in leadership if you make your office into some don't talk you got so many hours and there's countdown to five hours that's awful people don't want to be a part of that it needs to be welcoming it needs to be encouraging for growth in needs to to able to to talk to take a break to do those things that people do people want a few things from an office space right several things but if you come to mind I want to be able to speak to their colleagues okay not I mean if someone walking around this office shink people that dead do engage in small talk that do want to talk with some friends that they have this company they've developed I can't imagine how this isn't forced it makes no sense people WanNa talk about whatever they want people want to be able to share people want to be able to to share with business Sharon personal life they want to be able to text it's fair is fair game now when it becomes excessive that's fair but within within means it's so here's the solution okay let's just just mix these worlds all together and make it actually viable let's get away from the nine to five let's get away from the we can shorten it to eight to one but don't talk to anybody let's at both are insane right leave the office open for normal business hours okay here's what I would say this company or any company in a similar company similar office space and trust the people that you've spent all this time money energy resources in that they can get their work done and get it done at a high level if someone wants to come into the office at ten. Am and get their work done in the next couple of hours and leave at noon and their workers done and done at a high level great go home that is so radical that people in it seems like the simplest thing in the world to me if someone can get up and finished our work from home and they wanna work from home and get the work done at I dunno four thirty great do that because what you want to focus on guys gals if your manager if you're an individual contributor if you're an executive if you're the owner of the business from your team your department your Anthony Point the way in incentivize the way to result that's it stop counting ours stop talking at how many hours did tim work today Oh gee he should have worked eight he's only here seven is does tim work at a high level does tim hit the numbers you ask him does he listened to your feedback and directives does he have new ideas for the company Yes yes yes yes yes leave tim alone Tim's who you want try to figure out while the other people are taking nine hours and Tim is taking seven try to figure out why Cynthia's taking four hours Tim's taking seven what's Cynthia sounds grade we have to stop counting hours I understand this is some it's one hundred year old concept from the industrial age I get it and it's ingrained in all of us to some extent what are the hours how long did you work I mean it's irrelevant results are relevant results are relevant that's it focus on the results as long as your team is getting the results in an ethical and moral way then get out of their way I wanted and thinking and kind of reflecting so I don't know the exact percentage but I'm going to throw a number at it and I think it's about this leadership is is is it at least fifty percent confidence so you know I'm talking to anyone at all in any role whatsoever whether you are working you're in high school oh you're a seasoned executive you are a business owner you are stay at home mom kicked doesn't matter I'm gonNA speak more in a business context but it's really elven this lesson is for all right so leaderships fifty percent confidence it doesn't mean a confidence on I say that I don't mean that a good leadership pretend to know things they don't know now that's wrong do that I don't mean that use a leader will never be an uncharted areas are unchartered waters okay but even when you aren't unchartered waters you can exude confidence okay. Any team who's worth at salt does not expect their leader to know everything They do expect when everything's hitting the fan and everyone else in freaking out about one thing or another are many things they do expect their their go to person their leader to keep their cool a cool head is able to view a situation hundred times better and judge it accordingly and make the correct decision in the heat of the moment simple it's simple to know that it's hard to do I know.

"That's in a nutshell. There's more to it right but that's it. These innovations will create more jobs and more opportunities for those looking be one of the people that's looking for it. It will create more jobs ops and the third point is the biggest that i want to touch on. I mentioned a minute ago but i want to go into a little more this. The the third one is this. It's going to the new updates the new technology between now and twenty thirty which is when it's really going to spike as my prediction. It's going to given excellent opportunity to change how we as people teach and educate our children and the students of our of our nation's right. I'm i'm talking specifically about the united states. When i say our nation that's where i live but could be any and all nations of course okay and i say that because this the simple fact his students come out of twelve years of public school having learned what exactly has a big loss there right on on purpose because i really there's not i mean you struggle to tell me what they've come up with in twelve years all right. It doesn't work anymore and the way the way it's presently constituted public school twelve years. The whole bit doesn't work it just doesn't and we're seeing that because we're seeing people pushing pushing to move up the minimum wage to extraordinary height right all that says to anyone that looks at it and knows what they're looking at says is people coming out of high school men and women coming out of high school young young men and women they they they don't own have the value they don't they haven't learned enough to bring any value to the market so we have to therefore artificially changed that with government legislation nation and ray and regulations so without getting into all that there's a huge opportunity to grow to change and to evolve and most importantly improve our education the system and we're seeing that now so many people so many roles as these statistics claim to be replaced by algorithms machines and artificial intelligence agents. What is that scream. It's screams. One thing we have to improve the way we educate and teach our young people period we have to. There's no reason to continually go over things in in elementary school to go over subtraction for four four five years. Kids need the absolute the basics of math science and all social studies language arts. They have to know how to read right right after that they can pick that up pretty quickly so the way we approach it. We have to spend less time on twelve years of basics and more time on how to approach how to live and how to excel in the real world not just you made it. You're alive. You're eighteen go after for it so many of these children unless they're unless they're taught at home by their parents were just ideal taught as they're going through public school unless they're taught what to expect and getting ready to go out by the time these kids had eighteen and they go to school. They started job. Whatever their path is there wholly wholly unprepared the average wholly unprepared so as the complexity of the world has increased and i'm sure we'd all agree it has so do the challenges we face so we can't sit on education from hundred so years ago the same model oh and expect that education to take us into the heart and the end of the twentieth century it's insane. It makes no sense sense so the biggest opportunity is our as how we teach and educate but the biggest thing i want you to take from from this and the way we're listening and learning are hearing from the media media about the coming a._i. Revolution and the the disruption disruption one word in it's it's opportunity. That's what you have in front out of you. You're if you're someone who you think your job is going to be moved into taken over by some robotics or artificial intelligence. It's very unlikely that it's going to happen tomorrow. Okay you have time for these things. That's why always saying so. Many of these podcasts are probably sick of hearing me say you gotta be searching. You got to be looking. You have to be always searching searching for something searching for the next the next bit of information formation searching for the next great book searching for your next great project looking looking looking so we can get ahead of these things simply by hearing hearing hearing what's being said seeing where things are going and then say hey. I'm going to need to upgrade my skill set. I'm going to need to get better what i'm doing now. It might be automated. Aided in a couple of years you have time is what i'm saying. There are great challenges guys in the world today as we know look at the news look at your neighborhood first and foremost right not the news. I should say look at your neighborhood. Look at your people in your community. Look at your city. Look at your state huge judge opportunity there to do what to improve to help people to help your community to help your school in your area to help the young people in your area to to lend a helping hand huge opportunity there. Those opportunities will grow and grow exponentially in the coming years. The world moves. It's like it's never moved before the speed is breakneck and we as a people of the united states we as a people the world all of us we need people we need leaders ready to step in and help those and give a helping hand so no matter where you are now no matter what you're doing but i really could care less will. I'm just working at <hes> at this basic boring job. If that's who you are that's what you're thinking could care less this aged. You can move from that to running something running a business running your own company director of this working on that writing a book starting this this starting a podcast putting together a movie name something it's possible so if you're the person in in in the small thinking being of yesteryear. You need to not be that person. You need to go and step up into who you're meant to be. Which is the question. I would ask if you still have if you're still wondering say what's possible for me. What am i capable of if i really really wanted to do this if i really gave my ninety five hundred and five percent in that range what could i get done. What could i be what could i do. What can i give to others if i was that person if i was at my hundred percent will could i give back. That's where you have to be. Let's in the coming years in the coming coming decades as a people of this world. Let's not be reactive anymore. Okay let's not wait for. Some of this is happening and then that's that's. That's not gonna work out. Get ahead of the curve. Get out in front of it. Try new things experiment fail succeed. It's always going to work for you if you go. Oh about it that way so with that to you to your family and to the world may you be blessed <music>.

"There are people in every time in every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future mistrust the present and invoke the security of a comfortable past which in fact never existed robert kennedy the more and more. I hear the mainstream narrative convinced were looking at artificial show intelligence automation in the future the wrong way. There's a lot of misconceptions and there's a lot of fear thrown at us every single day in the news about automation automation and artificial intelligence so that's what i want to talk about today getting our minds around this looking at it from a different perspective a different frame and and how you can approach it no matter your role no matter your job no matter your company no matter what you do so the narrative that's in the mainstream stream media. That's in the media played out constantly constantly and here's what it is. Here's what it is in a nutshell. It's this all of the new technologies will take everyone's everyone's jobs and then what will we do and then they paint a picture of whatever they want you to believe needs to be done after all. The jobs are taken away by computers suitors and robots and whatever they're coming with the k. New disruptive and innovative technologies must always be we looked at from at least this one angle and that is what is the possible opportunity that comes with this technology. There's other angles and they can be incorporated and we can always look through those but we have to always include the angle of what are the possible opportuni opportunities. Excuse me what are the possible opportunities because without that we're going to fall into pessimism. We're going to fall into fear mongering and that's the easiest thing in the world to do in any aspect of our lives so let's not do that. Let's look at the possible opportunities <unk> -tunities okay so i was reading a was doing some research on wanting to talk on this talk wanting to get this pod <hes> out to you guys and and i read through one article stood out to me. It was a brookings <hes> article from two thousand eighteen so what's not to some of the statistics and i wanted to the site some of those. I'll read some of those two. There's a two or three that i want to go over and we'll chat about and i'll link to the article in the show notes so you can check it out there. If you'd like so this again in two thousand eighteen brookings and let me <hes> let me go over those within our read some of this directly to you so <hes> so a pew research coach center study asked one thousand eight hundred ninety six experts about the impact of emerging technologies and found quote half half of these experts forty eight percent envision a future in which robots in digital agents will have displaced significant numbers of both blue and white collar workers with many experiencing concern that this will lead to vast increases in income equality masses of people who are affected effectively unemployable and breakdowns in the social order okay so one quote. They're continuing the article in the wall. Then i'll check on some of this these fears have been echoed by detailed analyses showing anywhere from fourteen to fifty four percent automation impact on jobs for example. The bruegel analysis found that fifty that quote fifty fifty four percent of e u jobs are at risk of computerization using european data. They argue that job. Losses are likely to be significant and people should prepare for large large scale disruption last one of the last ones. I want to read before chat about this. Meanwhile from the article oxford furred university researchers carl frei and michael osborne claim that technology were transform many sectors of life. They studied seven hundred and two occupational groupings things and found that forty seven percent of u._s. Workers have a high probability of seeing their jobs automated over the next twenty years. Is that true it's possible again. Keep in mind how this started. When i read the part of the pretty short article it started as they interviewed experts. It's in this is their thoughts okay. They researched. They got some data. This is our thoughts on the data so keep that in mind okay. It's all predictions. It's all it's all estimates okay. We've got some experts together. This is what they said. Take it with a grain of salt. Take it with two grains of salt. The last the last quote a mckinsey global institute analysis of seven hundred fifty jobs concluded that forty five percent of paid activities could be automated using currently demonstrated technologies and sixty percent santa vac-vacation occupations could have thirty percent or more of their processes automated k. john in another quote jobs lost cost jobs gained found that thirty percent of work activities could be automated by twenty thirty and up to three hundred seventy five million workers worldwide could be affected by emerging technologies possible possible possible now. Let's look at this. Let's let's stop the article here and talk about disruptive technologies guys since human beings were inventing things have existed. There's been technologies that changed significantly quickly vastly the way we work the way we think about things things the way we approach our everyday life business work anything. It's always been done. Let me give you three just three big ones that that aren't even looked dan in as they're looked at as an everyday part of our lives now but we're disruptive technology disruptive inventions in their time time number one rail okay rail change the united states it changed how we operate how we travel it gave access to people on the west coast to people on the east coast and allowed people from the south to travel to the north and vice versa it connected our whole country and it did that for most of the most of the the world when they got rail airlines commercial airlines okay that again travel it changed travel changed the way we travel it changed. How people could live people would always wiz live children would grow up they move out. They move down the street. They'd move a little bit up to the town over a mile to ten miles away. That's it it changed being able to move from the middle of the country colorado. Let's say and then that child wouldn't can now move to florida because they could travel. Their parents could travel within a couple a two to three hours to visit them so that's just one tiny example. I know but that's extremely disruptive. That changes how how much people are gonna use the rail. When air air came that changes how much people are going to drive because we don't need to drive we can just fly down to florida for example extremely disruptive. A lot of people lost a lot of jobs there all right and we'll go over how to look this but just keep in mind in the last one. I'll just briefly touch on the internet. The internet it seems has always existed to us most of some of you. You were most of you listening. It's always been there. It's not the case obviously but that's a huge disruption and we're still seeing the disruptions that have come with the internet. The new technology companies the financial financial technology companies. The amazon effect is still going right. We're still seeing that so. Here's what i'm getting to. Here's the crux of what i want you to take away from the fear all right. Let's set it aside and talk about the reality and how to best approach this no matter who you are. There's an incredible opportunity. In this fast paced world. We live in a fast paced an understatement at this point. It's light speed anymore. It's light speed so there's a huge huge opportunity for individuals and businesses alike like but you have to know what to look for and you have to look at it the right way approach the right way so i want to leave. You and i want you to think about three things. When you hear the a i the fearmongering okay not that there won't be challenges. I'm not trying to understate then not that. There won't be things that some will try to approach and do incorrectly. That's that's always the case but the best way for you in the way to look at it number. One that comes to my mind is number one opportunity for the workforce to improve proved their skill sets listen if your job is going to be automated or is disrupted by this technology. That's a huge signal to do what step up your skill set improve your skill set because in the market it's telling you you now want to make yourself more valuable. There's going to to be a a robot a machine a program in algorithm soon. That's going to take your job. That is a huge signal guys now that you if you're one of these these people and that's that's okay is to go and self educate yourself right go and get new classes going learn a new skill. I'm not saying go back to a four year degree or go. Pick up that masters you're waiting on. You could surely do that but that's really not what i'm saying. I'm saying update those skills. Maybe you need to brush up on your public speaking speaking. Maybe that's going to help. You get promoted to something else. Maybe you need to get into coding all right. Maybe that's something that's gonna help. Machine learning is now at the very beginning of its opportunity. People are looking for people who know anything about machine learning so there's thousands i could list them of opportunities for you to grow oh improve your skill set and be stronger stronger opportunity for you on the market okay number two way to look at this and another two number. Two opportunity is new technology always creates new jobs. Okay always we always forget that when when you hear the fear it's only one thing all these jobs are gonna be we lost. That's it all these jobs. No that's not the case often times. More jobs created than jobs lost. There's going to be jobs that are going to be created that never existed before when more and more automation comes in. There's going to be new roles new jobs new opportunities for anyone one that wants them anyone that can come up with them. They're out there and they will. They will come so it isn't just a loss to the economy. Every time powerful positive innovative technologies hit it has been a benefit it has grown to be to gain and create more wealth off okay one of the big fallacies. There's a limited numbers of limited number of jobs and on top of that a big fallacy just to go on tangent is there's a limited the number of wealth. There's just this much wealth and these people have a lot of it and we don't have a lot of it and i know that anyone that talks like that. No zero about about economics and how and how money works wealth is something that is created. Okay wealth is created by innovation by talent and by serving people and giving them a product or service that they want therefore creating and partying with their dollars..

"That will probably likely will most likely come after some financial crisis in the world scene where they will see. It's too unwieldy. They'll pare down to ten to twelve and that will allow them to to the unite and be stronger in that in that arena a currently one of the going into the weaknesses still it follows u s geopolitical political strategy so that is a weakness because it's unable to chart its own course it doesn't have independence and that way that is also changing so germany especially ashley has been the lead the lead. I don't know if i'd say instigator but the leader in moving europe slowly but surely away from following u._s. Geopolitical strategy and policy last last but not least europe has no <unk> as i mentioned no strong leadership they currently guys have three presidents in the european union okay so they have three different presidents all have different roles goals. It's not unified on that front so that is a huge weakness. If you look at russia china iran they all have central figures and thorin leaders not that you have to have that but that is that is something europe will need and they will get a strong leader in the future that will bring them together strongly so going into the stuff for you so i go over that i number one white over that at all with with all view number one. It's important to understand understand to know a little bit about geopolitics no matter what you do. I don't care what type of business you're in what your job is and it doesn't matter studying geopolitics helps. You helps to helps the way shape your mind as far as how you think you have to. You have to get into a country's history. You have to analyze world trends and see where things are going and how that helps is. It helps you to be a better business. Thinker help should be a better leader helps. It'd be a better parent because your mind mind is taking in ninety one hundred twenty two two hundred points of data and figuring out what's next why it's happening and where to go from there super important and also those who want to know what's happening in your world wide happening and what's likely to happen next this helps you do that so that's important for for all of you. Leaders out there and all of your business people in everyone listening no matter who you are. That's why i'm going into this so for you potential areas of change. This is really what i'm leading with with all are trying to get to with all of this. I'm going to go into three number. One governance style. We're seeing in across the nation not just in these areas. The type of governance is changing drastically. We're seeing the world move away from liberal democracies and a so much of the world is moving towards authoritarian regime. Mm strongmen strong leader regimes okay. We're seeing across africa. We're seeing it across asia everywhere okay so are you seeing more dictators more more those types of rules across the world whether to china russia turkey venezuela name an an african nation most of them have a prime minister or president that rules as a king essentially so the government style is changing and that has a lot to do guys is with the rising powers china is leading that charge and demonstrating the one man rule theory as as has russia since since one thousand nine hundred nine nine with vladimir putin so we're seeing that a lot okay now one of the one of the symptoms are one of the results of this style of if government were versus authoritarian versus freedom freedom styles of government. Is we see something like brexit. Europe doesn't have a strong leaders. I mentioned a single authority but you're the european union is very very authoritarian in its rules its regulations in all of its bureaucracies and it does not allow those nation-states in states right. It doesn't allow the france the francis of the world the great britain's italy's in all the member states to chart their own course when it comes to economic policy. Let's see <hes> when it comes to fiscal responsibility immigration so you see from that is the people of britain have spoken and said we want to charter own course and we wanna charted it from westminster. We want to determine our future so you're going to see a lot more across the globe guys move towards the authoritarian model. It's it's it's happening. That's the trend of the twenty first century so far cain. Everyone said it would never happen in the eighties and the nineties after the soviet union fell that liberal liberal democracy th liberal democracies with future the united states great britain with <hes> with <hes> essential liberal democracy australia and many many the other key everyone in germany. Everyone had a liberal democracy at second seemed like so. That's one trend you have to look at those are potential. That's a big area of change. The the second is the financial system the world the global financial system as it's presently constituted is set to change from a u._s. dollar lead to something else whether it's many currencies competing whether it's a basket of currencies whether it's gold lead financial system. Something's going to change there in the next five to seven years. Keep an eye on that and you're also now why. Why would i say them so. We're seeing seeing russia more seeing china. We're seeing a lot of nations besides that a lot of eastern european nations hoarding and buying gold in the tons they're buying and buying and buying gold. Why does that matter it means there have they don't have confidence anymore in the dollar as a reserve currency before award this happened in the beginning of two thousand these countries russia china everyone really would hold millions and millions and millions billions of dollars in excuse me in u._s. Dollars and that would be their their holder of wealth and value their starting to dump their dollars and buy tons of gold so keep an eye on that that as a as a huge area of change in the world and the last thing i'll mention which has to do with point one is the internet we're seeing a lot of changes and a lot of experimentation with governments across the globe with the internet cutting the internet which is in my mind one of the scariest the scary things that can possibly happen and we really need to see a focus from all citizens of any nation to to push against this. We're seeing a lot of you know what i call or what you've heard. Maybe a kill switch. Governments who are instituting authoritarian moves cracking down on protests taking people killing protesters attacking attacking citizens. They're cutting off the internet so that their citizens can't use their cell cell phones. They can't get on the internet and send it on twin. Send these videos notes and tax on twitter through their mobile devices. They're just cutting the internet off and and that is going to go along with the authoritarian style which china is trying to perfect which is this ultimate surveillance state. The state knows everything and you are always and forever going to be watched so we're really going to see a battle for the freedom of the internet and whether it's going to be a freedom led style k. a u._s. Led style which there's still work to be done there. Don't get me wrong a freedom internet where people are able to do as they feel make money on the internet and be free insecure or more of a chinese lead internet which is a topic for another other day to get into but where things will be censored things will be pulled out of your browser certain things you can and cannot see new cycles be curated. It's really a nightmare to be honest and that's that's. We're seeing russia them. Give you some examples quickly. Russia's creating has created an intranet so if if the rest of the world were to shut down the internet russia would have its own internally just within russia okay or or another way to look at russia could just cut themselves off from the world's internet if if the government didn't want those citizens in russia to see anything could just turn off the internet and and just have the russia intranet. K china has a great. I'm sure you've all heard china's great firewall which essentially at its everything eh censors everything that goes into china's internet okay so the only allow what they the government wants to their citizens to see again being in america extremely scary okay and again more internet shutdowns another example more internet shutdowns and all across africa from authoritarian regime. So what did these changes made for. You all list a couple. We'll we'll wrap this up so for you as as whatever you do wherever you are as the world goes from being so globalised to being regionalized it's going to affect a couple things come to mind travel number one the cost of travel the the ease of travel the passports where they go and how they work as there's more conflicts between nations and groups of nations. It'll be increasingly challenging challenging. If you're if you're traveling to one of those nations that your country is in conflict with depending on how great the conflict it can be near impossible astle or will be very hard and and or suspicious okay. It's just the way it's going to be. This is the way governments operate since time immemorial. You have have to look out for this. I'm be prepared so wait a way to prepare for that is obviously having multiple passports. If possible for you something to think about another thing that will change as things become more regionalized is consumer prices. Consumer goods will likely not all of them but will likely go up in price because you're going to see as we've already seen with the the u._s. And china tariff wars okay so they're beginning to to see each other as a u._s. Is beginning to see china's more of a true rival so we're seeing a way to kind of throw throw a wet blanket on china in a way so we're seeing tariffs which will just affect their regular. Everyday people consumer consumer goods will go up simple things that you buy it. A walmart will inevitably golvin price from t shirts to electron ix to everything in that store most likely will go up undoubtedly so be ready for that <hes> couple other effects oil and gas prices will likely go up and sh- due to shipping costs <hes> going up as well so as the world becomes more regionalized shipping in acrossed seaports and sea lanes will become increasingly any more dangerous. We've seen this in iran with iran. We're seeing more and more oil tankers in shipping tankers being obstructed by by other nations by <hes> rogue nations rogue terrorist organizations so that's going to cost shipping insurance to go through the roof and that's just is going to be passed on to the consumer so shipping prices will go up oil and gas will also go up as well so keep your eyes on those things and i know we covered a a lot today but again just to wrap up. We're moving very quickly from from being what everyone said would continue to grow being global is it'll be more and more of a global world world citizenship. That's completely false and completely changing k. We've we peaked at globalization probably a few years ago. Maybe in two thousand seventeen probably pre donald trump's presidency globalization's out all right. It's it's waning. It's not going to be over over the next year and twenty twenty but it's it's imagine we've climbed a mountain. Were at the top in two thousand sixteen for globalization and we're walking back down that mountain. The world's gonna become more regional. We're gonna have these powers. I listed iran. The european union the united states russia china. They're going to be competing in their spheres influence and they're going to be working through <hes> through economics through military through cultural challenges all of those those ways in many more to challenge rival each other so things will get increasingly complex for how we do business for how we travel for for how we buy food where we go what the cost is. Everything's going to change and if technology hasn't shown has hasn't shown us yet has shown us. I should say how quickly things change. Technology's just drastically changing our world.

"We are in the midst of great change in the world the age the job of the united states led world is really coming to an end and it's coming to an end quickly so this means tremendous change for so you if you live in the united states <hes> and for really people across the globe no matter where you are located it will mean big changes for you as well so the u._s. U._s. has been the dominant force in the dominant nation. <hes> since the end of world war one so approximately one hundred years and the dominant power prior to the u._s. was the british empire for approximately two hundred years or so give or take just a bit so we're moving back into an age of great powers competition so we're going to have different regions led by different powers or multiple powers vying for <hes> vying for dominance in different fields and it's going to start slowly but as we're seeing every day and every month it's going to pick up and i'll go into some examples of that little bit so the great powers competitions coming back and that really originated or that term originated in the post napoleonic europe europe when britain austria prussia france and russia were really worked together competed together to maintain the balance of power in europe so we're also seeing so back to modern times we're seeing the reemergence of both china and russia both much much older civilisations than than the united states of america and we're also seeing the rise very quickly of an another ancient civilization in iran okay from the formerly known as some of you may know formerly known as persia so the wild card of these emerging powers over most of these in detail in a moment the wildcard really i find the most interesting is the european union which again i'll get into that and just just just a moment so first briefly the united states which i i won't get into a lot of detail on at some of its strengths weaknesses and where tap but just a brief mention of some of its spheres of influence that still remain strong to current day okay so a strong sphere of influence in central and south america right the united kingdom especially now as brexit is finally coming to ahead that will be a good <hes> periphery of influence for the u._s. still even stronger now australia the pacific including new zealand and <hes> and also near the japanese <hes> see in japanese area the u._s. Obviously is this is their superpower in the world. I would still consider it the sole superpower of the world and that united states power though not as quickly as some pundits say is receding it is receding and on the global stage. Okay not as quickly as you hear most of the time in in the sensationalized media but it is happening now these powers. I'm going to go over briefly. I'll mention china briefly just a few notes but i'm really going to get into three others in more detail but now and i mean by <hes> <hes> powers these are more regional powers are vying for regional dominance and working their way up the scale. Okay so firstly china okay. There's four we got china iran russia and the european union starring with china <hes> just just briefly the second largest economy in the world has gray geography. Geography guinea has great access to <hes> to freshwater ports. It is a nuclear power which always gives you a bump up when we're talking <hes> geopolitical strengths wchs as far as the great power the game of the great powers. The big strength that it's building is its belt and road initiative. It's been building that for several years so it's building a large corridor door and connecting really connecting all of your asia and reviving old silkroad okay so it's doing that to give it more economic influence and hoping to turn that into military implants <hes> some of the weaknesses i see china just briefly population size. It's massive. Population can be a blessing. It can be a curse guide advice more of the curse when you're into the multiple billions of people are billion and a half or so people <hes> but it can go either way and also state run state and big businesses are are essentially one entity very intertwined which coming from america view that as a big weakness as well so it has many others but i just i'm just going from thirty thousand feet here and i wanna get more into iran russia and especially the e e you and and then also of course how this affects you okay. Why would this affect you. Why do you care. How's this going to help anybody in the world. What what is this matter. Not you so going into iran. Iran doesn't have superpower potential but it's in a unique position. It's some of its strengths are two very unpredictable so as it is it's working in battling in the middle east for influence for to strengthen its. It's own position. It's one of the most unpredictable if not the most unpredictable outside of perhaps north korea. It's one of the most unpredictable of the good of the great. Powers are any of the new killer aspiring powers. It's it's by far the most unpredictable outside of north korea some of its other strengths recently in the last few years it has a very firm influencing and i would even go so far as to say control in on iraq so it's able able to extend that influence into iraq and beyond and also very strong influence in syria the geography of iran's interesting in in the respect to where it's located so it's actually a corridor connecting the middle east in in greater asia so if you ever when you check out a map look at that very interesting there it's it's very it's very yeah well positioned where it's out weaknesses in current <hes> current events it's dealing and dueling directly with the united states and israel okay so it's actually come to the attention the united states so much that it's open conflict and we were kind of ratcheting up the economic and some the skirmishes on the military side so that's not a weakness you want to be under the radar. If you're iran in my opinion the sanctions from the u s led cole the from the u._s. are really crippling iran crippling the the the the modern excuse me the average everyday iranian really hurting the economy <hes> <hes> and the people the more they get frustrated with such an authoritarian regime. That's going to spell trouble for iran. Russia sean moving to russia <hes> just briefly a lot here with russia but i won't stick with them too long. I want to spend time on kind of the wild card of the e._u. Russia's obviously nuclear power our some of their strengths their super-efficient on their military strength so they able to spend less per dollar and get a great result back then saved u._s. Okay they've been able to streamline their military budget and spending geographies a plus it stretches through multiple timezones multiple regions so russia really is unique in the fact of its size number one. It's the largest country okay four square square miles in the world but also so it's able to bridge east and west. It's that link between their russia to me is a super regional power and what that means is because because it's so much i'll go this is one of the weaknesses but because it's so landlocked it isn't able to get to those freshwater ports and easily we exert power as easily as as a china or a united states okay so that allows it to be a swing state is what i call are a nation a swing state to give it's power to any of its allies in the eurasian continent so it can really bolster a leading power which will get to in a minute it weaknesses as is i mentioned land-based power no strong access to oceans and it really does have a small economy very small small g._d._p. Small economy similar in size and scale to to canada can sell not super small but it isn't superpower sized okay so e you real briefly with e you as i see as best i can but <hes> listening to this. I think there's interesting points here because the european union has a unique is unique in many ways but really the potential <hes> the e._u. Has the potential to be the top power in the world. Okay if it if it had a few things change for it but it's that potential henchoz there and that's what makes it very interesting. <hes> strengths at has a central geographic position central being to the world. It's smack dab in in the middle of the world. Meaning has direct access to the atlantic ocean so it can project power all the way to the north american continent and to south america <hes> it has access to the mediterranean therefore influence on the mediterranean nations and north africa and it has access in his able to exert exert influence into the middle east so it had an obviously into into asia via russia so it has access to really every part of the globe from its central starting starting point <hes> currently it's strength. It's under the u._s. Nuclear umbrella so the u._s. is paying and funding essentially for the majority of its nuclear protection and and retaliation okay so that gives it strength because europe can continue to grow and facilitate towards its own defense and military and divert funds as and build up strength while the u._s. protects it so that gives it a unique position in the world <hes> a very unique position asian the combined economy guys is the largest in the world so if you combine all the european nation states their economy would be the greatest in the largest just in the world even surpassing the united states so that that gives you pause as well just to see what this could be one of the largest or the most unique aspects aspects of the e._u. When looking at it versus say china or even even russia or america any of them really is number one. It's a bunch of it's a collection of nations right that individually some of the bigger ones germany france italy and <hes> <hes> in the u._k. Which when it was a part of it all of them can really you stand on their own is as great powers or are have in the past combined. They're very unique. They have some some things that combine them or some things that some things that a by that that bring them together. They have things in common and i'm trying to say but what makes europe unique is europe's. One ability to unify hasn't really we've been activated yet and that that one unique identifiers the catholic church okay so many of the people in eastern and western and europe identifies catholic and the catholic church with the the leadership that has in the way it's created and built with the pope allow that individual and that entity to be and it will be the unifier of europe okay so you heard it here first. It may not happen for several years or maybe even decades but it will happen if europe is to be a world power superpower it will come behind <hes> the the the help of the catholic church and the pope now. How do i know that if you look throughout history and this is interesting anytime europe has been a united force not just one nation or two nations but europe has exerted tremendous influence in the world as united front. It's always come through a strong leader okay on the temporal side right in the government and a strong a strong leader in the catholic church the pope those those two working in conjunction always spell great influence and superpower or great power status for europe and that's what is missing in in europe right now. One of the things going into the weaknesses europe has no unified military at at present time there you can hear checking the news. You're seeing a a lot more calls from some of europe's top leaders to get a unified military at e you army which at present doesn't officially exist europe has too many nation states. I think it's a twenty seven or twenty eight to way too many can't because of that they have no unified foreign policy and they're unable to wield vinnie influence if everybody's if spain's pulling one direction germany another france and other guys get it so really you're going to see them. Guys and again don't know when this will happen exactly ackley. I'm not i don't have dates but they will pair that union down to ten twelve nations k it's going to.

"Truth. Wow. Wow. Nuggets. Some my pen is going crazy hair as you're talking. Now regarding rituals. You know, I talk about the bookends morning and night and having some type of ritual, what? What would you mind sharing you don't have to you don't want to, but would you mind sharing Elliott houses ritual is like from when you get up to when you go to bed, what does a typical day look like? Because as I said, Elliott has a lot of business owners as of ultra penelas at listen to this, and there's a lot of pus from China's that listen to this show, so I won't be Elliott halls daily ritual. If you will, will yo, if your trainer, you know that health is number one, our hormones or Noma one, you know, so that that is a function, you know, good hormone balance and function is a matter of getting in touch with the rhythms of nature. You know, be that your sleep wake cycles or when you eat and use the bathroom. You know, those are two rhythms that we can a tune to through ritual. Every time you sit down and eat, it's a ritual and every. Time you lay down to sleep is a ritual. So what I like to do is to is to use those primary nature based. Frequencies to get back in touch with my truth. And so for example, I go to bed and wake up at the same time every day every night. That's a ritual. If you see for me eight thirty comes okay. I'm already heading toward beds so that I can fulfil my ritual of putting my hand on my pillow at nine o'clock. You see, what I'm saying is not that mystical, that term ritual is not that mystical is not that wild, it's are you ritually getting to bed on time. That's key. If you are wanting to be the strongest version yourself in any area.
