Pablo Escobar's Hippos Are Out of Control
"A couple of years ago. I read a novella called river of teeth by sarah gaily. The concept of the story is based on a real world event. That almost happened smack. In the early twentieth century a bill was proposed in the us house of representatives and informally supported by theodore roosevelt. The us should import hippopotamuses from africa to the swamp lands of the gulf coast and breed them as an alternative meat source for americans basically starting a new industry in the us of hill. Ranching as you know this proposal never came to be but gala novella now collected into a volume with a sequel and some other stories under the title american hippo imagines magic in alternative history where this did happen only set fifty years earlier. You get kind of gulf coast cowboys on hippos tape story. It's great loved it. I highly recommend it. Or if you just wanna dig more into the facts. I put link in the show notes to a long read on the history of the hippo proposal by john. Mouallem will the reason i bring. This up is because americans in the early twentieth century. Were not the only ones with dreams of becoming hbo ranchers decades later pablo escobar would also get into the hippo game importing four of them to live on his estate in columbia and now forty some years later they have bread and multiplied and are spreading all over the wetlands of north bogo. Talk causing mayhem. Consternation and some real concerns for the region. Scientists say this now invasive species is competing with native wildlife polluting local waterways attacking humans and they project will grow in number two fifteen hundred hippos by twenty forty at that point the scientists say they will be nearly impossible to control their environmental impacts will be irreversible but never mind controlling fifteen hundred hippos. How do you control a dozen or even just one. That's not like you can just google it you know. In colombian officials are not hippopotamus experts and there are unique challenges levied upon this specific situation. I quoting the washington post in their natural habitat. Hippos spend the long dry season crowded into waterways shrunk to puddles. They're vulnerable to disease and predation not to mention one. Another as bad tempers but tropical columbia is hippo paradise. Environmental agency researcher david vary lopez said rain is abundant food is plentiful and they're no carnivores large enough to pose a threat. The animals spend five hours a day grazing on grasses and the rest of their time basking in the cool waters of the magdalena and surrounding lakes and quotes report from columbia not being the hippos natural habitat having in effect on the hippos behavior it also affects the surrounding communities impression of the hippos. The officials tasked with dismantling escobar's estate back in the ninety s. Weren't sure what to do with the one male and three female hippos so they just let them roam instead of sending them to a zoo with his other animals and mostly they did that because the hippos were massive and aggressive no one really wanted to approach them so we'll get the harm be and letting them go well. Kenyans and other african communities with native hippo populations could tell you a whole heck of a lot. You've got hippos from each sex so they can breathe for one and they're also hugely destructive to the environment into other animals. Hippos killed more humans each year than other large mammal. But when you don't grow up around hippos you don't necessarily know that so the hippos have become something of a mascot and columbia. According again gift shops in nearby puerto trail info sell hippo keychains and t shirts at the amusement park that was built on the site of escobar's former pleasure palace. Visitors can tour the lake where several dozen hippos now live occasionally one will plot into a nearby community looking as blase as a shopper on his way to the grocery store the hippopotamuses. The town pets resident claudia. Patricia camacho told the local news in two thousand eighteen. You could say that he now takes to the streets as if it were his own and quote but the hippos aren't as friendly as they may look on t shirts. They terrorize farms and hurt residents at times. The government has ordered the hippos to be shot on sight but there's been pushback from animal rights organizations and local residents so then they tried putting the hippos in a pin but and this is one of the mini quotes from this article. That honestly sounds straight hundred jurassic park. Etcheverry said i didn't know they could jump hikes so then they tried big pens with high enough walls that the hippos can't jump onto them. They've also been focused on trying to prevent them from breeding by cuisine. And then castrating the males. They've been through a steep hippo anatomy learning curve on that front though. Not even being sure where to look. For the animals external reproductive organs turns out. It's a bit complicated. They finally got a system of castration down. But it's costly and complicated so they can only do about one year but the estimates are that the population grows ten percent a year and apart from the bodily harm humans and the destruction of farms the hippos as they multiply host of other problems quoting again. A twenty twenty study of hippo inhabited lakes found that nutrients from the animal's feces were fuelling huge. Plumes of area an algae. These intern reduced the oxygen content of the water. Making it toxic to fish.
Uganda's Museveni Faces Tough Challenge In Presidential Election
"New seven E, who has been in power for 35 years. Is facing a strong challenge from Bobby Wine. Ah young singer turned politician who's half his age. MPR's Africa correspondent later Peralta is in Uganda's capital of Kampala. And he interviewed the president and he joins us Now with this exclusive and ater. Where did you meet the president? So we met at his ranch in she. SOC, which is about a five hour drive from Kampala and his cows were grazing in the distance. And you know, he came in making jokes. He was carrying a travel mug and wearing his signature broad brimmed hat, and we sat under this big tree to talk. Guess before we dive in. Can you tell us a little bit more about him? Yes. So he helped topple to dictators in the seventies and eighties. But now he has been in power. Since 1986. Uganda has changed the Constitution twice to allow him to stay in power, and he is now running for a six term in office. The election is on Thursday. So I started with a pretty simple question. What is it that you haven't accomplished in 35 years? You plan to accomplish this time around and as most 70 is bound to do, he gave me a history lesson and colonialism. And he said that he wants to work to bend the arc of history on the continent, including to change what he said was a culture of not working hard. Not with this huge continent. With a small population. Has a good Mentality for its people. They don't have to work hard. No, this would be the struggle week. These know it all. Promotes. I don't know. Because in other parts of the world People are pressure to work either by the environment. Which is horse died. Oh, by competition between man and man, But here Fool's gonna survive. Don't tell that really harsh thing to say about you just recorded to record that is really harsh, so he didn't talk about a five point plan about issues like building roads or improving schools. No. I think he was insulted by the question because he said that it implied that he should leave office after 35 years. He says that he's trying to accomplish historical things, and he looked to George Washington as a model. The Americans are the most powerful country in the history of man. I want to do. What Washington did work for the economic and, in some cases, even political integration of Africa. So using the United States is an example. You and here I told President Museveni, the George Washington gave up power after eight years to make a point that the American presidency was not a lifetime appointment, and 70 argued that Washington could leave because the American electorate and its economic system was more sophisticated when the social direction Over society. Is already set. It would have been run it. Probably with you know, kids, the dentition is not set. So it's very risky, very risky age, actually, from the lack of seriousness off those who talk the way you were talking That you you just go. Just go. People don't know whether the world North or South And you see you just go. Yes, if before already clear that the direction is the North. David. The body's no longer There's no more argument about that. Then anybody thunder candidate. I can see it now. You know the way that you go. But your people are smart and they're entrepreneur Ng and I mean to to be totally honest here. I think what you're saying sounds really condescending toward your It's not under city. It is a struggle to J. A society which we know where Which, of course you don't know very well. Hmm. So transition is risky, he's saying but later what does his record after 35 years actually show Hey, look, there's no denying that most 70 has brought peace to Uganda. There's a saying in the rural parts that suffered tremendously under the terror of the L. A raise Joseph Kony. But at least they can sleep. But look, Uganda is still deeply poor and corruption is endemic. And I asked him specifically about his foreign minister. A few years ago, the FBI found that he took a $500,000 bribe from a Chinese businessman. You know, after they looked through some emails of hiss yet Sam Kutesa is still one of president was seventies. Most trusted men. What do you tell Ugandans who see this pass by and you don't fire your foreign minister? That one is is terrible. I have not read it. But what I read it on. I really I despised And Condemning or policy. It's I'm happy to send you the indictment, which has the email in it, you can reuse do But look, The truth is he has had years to read this, so he must have known about this. Okay Elections, as we've mentioned are on Thursday. Is he campaigning? He is He's everywhere in Uganda, but he did still take the time to drag me around his farm to show me his cows. Yeah. These and these cows or his prized possessions, and you know they're beautiful, and he has 10,000 of these cows. But as he was walking away, he wanted to explain what made him different from his young opponent, he says. Bobby Wine is too focused on the lumpen proletariat or the thoughtless masses because what you do with the money the income generated by the By us the farmers. The industry's That would happen Who would head up in the ghetto people? Hmm? So he's saying if you can't hear it, that it is the rich like him, who will help the ghetto people. And this is coming from a man who has 10,000 cows in a country where many people eat meat for special occasions. Maybe for Christmas or for ead. This is so fascinating. Aitor will have more of your interview later today. What will be here? So we will ask him about elections will talk about his opponent and why security forces have reacted so violently to protests. And maybe it won't surprise you. But President was seven E is unrepentant. That's NPR's ater Peralta. Thank you later. Thank you, Tanya.
Traveling To Snowdonia
"Let's start with a peak at the natural appeal of the largest national park. In wales snowdonia the highest peak and wales in fact the highest peak in england and wales is called snowden sits in the heart of the snowdonia region and in one of britain's first national parks these welsh islands offer outdoor adventures gorgeous backdrop and draw countless tourists each year. Well skied martin. The land of its is here to help us make the most of our time in snowdonia martin. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me there. So i've been to your home. Snowden is right in the backyard you grew up there in northern wales snowden in snowdonia national park mean to you. It's a place. I tend to walk quite a lot. It's just a huge and beautiful area. When i say huge. It's massive eight hundred and twenty seven square miles but you don't see that many people in it feels massive because it's it's windy it stark. It's pristine yeah. Small road not allowed to crowds. How tall is mount snowden. It's the massive height of three thousand six hundred fifty feet above sea level at its peak but because it rises more or less out of the sea. Yeah it has the aspect of bigness about it. It's so interesting because here on the west coast of the united states. Three thousand five hundred feet. It's like this is sort of a medium mountain pass for britain. That's a big peak. That's you know. Ben davis is the highest one in britain and there are few mountains over four thousand of the snowdonia national park. You have all of wales peaks over three thousand feet high and on. I think there's only one pecan english over three thousand okay. And this is the north of wales in. I've traveled on wheels. A fair bid. I just if you got limited time. I would recommend north. The peaks only Less than four thousand feet but didn't The british Climbers have mount everest. Actually practice in the snowden area. They practiced in that. Nobody had ever used oxygen on a mountain before. And so they had a stroll round be had Two systems an open and closed. And they thought oh. The closed system is much better. But what they didn't realize goes onto everest the vows and clo- system froze so the luckily they had a couple of open systems with them but they had some rugged enough areas in north wales where thought they could have some practice there. And you do get to some mountain. they're not resorts alert. Sort of hiking centers or something there. There's some beautiful towns. There's town called. Beth goulart galaxy. Guess who described beth killer it's a mountainous area and therefore towns villages. They nestle in the valleys. They don't sit on tops of hills and bathe galax which means ballots grave is useful in a little bowl with rivers running through it stone building. Oh everything is built on. Everything is built stone bridges over the babbling drone bridges and of course slate roofs because wales used to be the slate production center of the world at one time that right so when we think about going to north wales as a visitor and we want to do some hikes. What advice would you give for enjoying the nature of snowden national park and bringing up some calories at the same time you can hike all levels. Mt snowden itself with acid in welsh is an attraction. And there's a railway that runs up if you don't wanna walk for three hours just take the train and this is kind of a cute little tourist steam train. Yeah it goes from some berries up to the top and that's a family out it is. It gets crowded. Some of what i was going to say is that snowden is like a magnet people have heard people know that so that eight hundred and twenty seven square. Miles will get away from snowden. You'll see fewer and fewer and people which is a lovely thing. It is very empty area. It is and if you wanted to have some rugged memory you could hike it without the steam train. Take what five hours or so three hundred. Well five hours up and down if you if you know. It's a nice day. It's a lovely day. Beware say this flat up. Beware of times of year like easter when it's considerably cooler the top dress. Well okay

Restaurants In New York Barely Scraping By As The New Year Arrives
"So You want to go out for a New year's Eve to a restaurant and celebrate as you probably have done in many years in the past, because you're not going to times Square? I wouldn't go to times Square, no matter what if it was 60 degrees and no cove, it Difficult Times Square on New Year's Eve. Just not my thing. I want to actually pee in your toilet. Not in my pants as I'm sitting there for five hours waiting. But if that's your thing, you can't do it right. So restaurants in the city or closed because of an edict. By the governor. That science based. Of course, he's just trying to react and do something. Because here in Westchester, we can go Dinan. There's a there's a capacity limit, but All these restaurants have changed, you know, like in some of these booths They'll put the plexiglass between the booths and skip Boots. So every other one could be occupied. Which is silly. Why the hell are you putting up the The Plexi class. All this stuff meant to keep the Crazy. Power hungry Health Department inspectors or The deputy sheriffs or anybody else who is being sicked upon you. From slapping you with a fine well, there's a new lawsuit that just came out restaurant group class action lawsuit against the Blasio and Cuomo. And basically it was started by the seaport house in Manhattan. There the first plaintiff butts class action, and they're basically saying, Hey, look. We cannot and will not respect or obey any further takings of our fundamental liberty. Interest in freedom's good for them. Because this is not based in science is only 1.4%, according to the state's health Department of Coronavirus cases. Not deaths. Positive cases, which could mean nothing. That are attributed to Restaurants, But the restaurants in New York City are bearing the brunt of this, so AH, place. I always go because I went to Fordham and I love to go to a couple basketball games a year we get together. We go to the game before the game. We go down to Arthur Avenue, which is across the street not fought right? And we go toe. Pasquale's Rigoletto will go to Dominic's will go to zero to know that all the good places down there that make it special. We can't do it now. Charlie. Apollo is the owner of Dominic. So, what happened to bump into yesterday? My wife and I, My mother in law went went out for lunch in Yonkers. Where, Of course, no problem. You have no restrictions other than some capacity limits, But we can have a good time and we did indoors. But Charlie Apollo and Dominic's and all the other restaurants in New York City can not. Charlie, How are you? Good, Bob. Thanks for having me today. So how bad is it? I mean, you guys have been through so much where you've had to shut down, And then you were able to open up for limited capacity or take out only by the way I'm not a take out kind of guy. When I go to a restaurant. I want the food to come out hot. I want to enjoy it. I want toe be with friends or family and not have to go to grab. You know a bag, Get it home and then have to reheat it. I'm not just me. I know a lot of people do it. Thank God they do because it's keeping you guys alive. But What's going on right now? Your restaurant Arthur Avenue, All of New York City. Are you guys air hanging on by a thread, right? That is correct or not the revenue all the restaurants, um, on Arthur Avenue followed protocol, according to the governor, I thought we were doing a good job of it all. I think all the all the city restaurants were trying to do the best they could. His shutting us down to the holidays was was very big alot restaurants and all the revenue are suffering right now. It's not enough just to sit outside. It's way too cold. On the houses they built on the street. They're trying to do the best they can with them, But it's just not enough and take out is not enough. So I think not only on off the revenue, but all to the city. Always four restaurants. We're all suffering pretty bad. Just think the governor should have a little bit more of a heart and kind of think about the small guys in this business because it's a trickle effect. It goes all the way down. On the restaurant's This applies to all the employees is just a trickling effect that it's hurting everyone.

Nashville bombing suspect may have been killed in blast, sources say
"The suspect in the explosion and Nashville was likely killed in the blast enforcement sources tell CBS News that the leading theory right now is that the person responsible for that bomb blast may have been killed in the explosion. We're also being told that DNA's tested being conducted on human remains found at the scene. Today, federal agents raided the home of a person of interest in connection with the explosion. CBS News has learned that law enforcement has identified the man is Anthony Quinn, Warner. This Google maps image obtained by CBS News shows an RV behind the wood fence, matching the description of the vehicle that exploded in Nashville. An FBI bulletin from the weapons of Mass destruction directorate, said Warner. At a similar make and model RV and the Google Street You shows an RV park in the yard of the Warners home. Today, part of the downtown area remains a crime scenes. There is a picture emerging, investigators have been able to trace the movements of the RV and the person driving it back almost five hours before the blast on Friday of 1:20 A.m.. It was at the intersection of Korean Veterans Boulevard and Second Avenue South. At 5:28 A.m.. A 911 caller reported that shots were fired in the area. Later there was another 911 call from someone telling police. The recording from the RV was saying a bomb was going to explode. When police arrived on scene, the RV was spotted parked outside the A TNT building. Officers noticed blinds and clothes covering the window. Shortly there after the warning of an imminent bomb started blaring through the streets, and all units are concerned with this is an explosive device. After the blast sources a shell casings from a gun were found at the scene. Perhaps set off by the large explosion. Or leads for investigators to follow along with about 500 tips.
Red Hat CEO Turned IBM President Jim Whitehurst Drives Cultural Change
"For too long into the red hat experience. But but how i'd be fascinated understand now yet a new culture a very different one from red hats After the acquisition talk about your own personal journey going from that dynamism of the red hat experience to the much larger organization different culture of ibm. Yeah sure i'm right in the middle of it. So i can spend a ton of time on Five hours on it or we'd spent five minutes so i'll start with a little bit. You know so what. I think i learned over time is out. I would argue. Delta airlines not was on the board of united now is incredibly well run company and it has a culture that would have killed red. Hat's red hat is a very well run company and it has a culture that would kill delta different. I'm gonna get together culture up at operating model because you're operating models really what drives cultures so it's leadership style behaviors sure banishment processes to org structure all electric culture. So i'm gonna munch those together. We had time. I can try to tease those apart. Let me just start off with those things together. A bit so in observation there is many companies have developed the operating model culture to dry standardization efficiency. Right that's what delta did the recent delta's the most on time airline at least the majors is because we spent a lotta time driving a ton of efficiency standardization. You're everything you're doing about how you take variance out and that's great for driving efficiency. Not really good for driving innovation because innovation is frankly all about driving variance in and so i got to red hat. What i thought was chaos. Lovely before i kill the i learned over. Time was just a relatively. Extreme way to trotted drive a faster pace of innovation and you know just taking the extremes the operating model delta. It's a single digit margin business where you are running very own. We wanna take in the last piece lettuce office salad. You'd get a salad. I mean you're like really really you know. It's a tough business in the software business if you get a winning product it money. Any software products gross margins are ninety plus percent if it's a winner jimmy lot of money so the question is will generate a winner and so once the innovation model that likely to try to write set of stuff where you ultimately ended up with winter. And so you know. I think for even how i spent every day at church at delta versus read different the cultures were is just the whole models are set up differently and so fast forward to that has one of the reasons why i have moved over to be. President of ibm is not because we want to drive red hats culture to be. Ibm's culture because ibm as a lot of services businesses we Mainframe hardware bunch of other things. But we want to try elements of the. I read culture in ibm. And the reason. I start off with that. Preamble and i encourage every company around. This ought to be really really chris. There is no better and worse. Culture operating model there are cultures and models that are used for different things. And here's the trick. Most companies a even red hat at both right you know we still had accounts payable processes and other things where we frankly didn't need all that innovation those standardize delta you want no innovation safety procedures before your trust me No examination there on the website you want experimentation so we're all mixes of those in it so to start off kind of coming into red hat. Everybody will most people idea are looking for breath of fresh air and a change. And i think we're trying to do some of that. But to be very very chris there elements of ibm's model. That are really important for what we do. And their elements red. Hat's model that we want to inject into ibm to change. But it's not a value judgment of better worse. It's different for different purposes. By the way. I'll say this is true in it. And i think a lot of people mess up in it they create a innovation group. That separate have no problem with the separate innovation group yet. But you can't over celebrate it like the special kids in the people who are running your european than keeping the lights on or not right and he can say hey. I'm gonna for model for these things. But they're both equally important is like a heart alone. Got gotta have both right. So i spent a lot of time at ibm talking about those things. Now what we've done from there is. We are very chris that there were three components of halter characteristics of culture. That we wanna drive ibm Entrepreneurial spirit growth mindset in radical candor. But we've also been very clear. Those are attributes. And i don't know how to implement an attribute i don't even know but when i can't do is i can exhibit behaviors. So we started. We're starting off in Stop word route. Which is it's like. Ninety percent of the prophets is probably fifty percent of the people but in the software group We're taking all of our managers breaking cohorts. Were having town halls meetings. You define behaviors that leap believe support radical candor growth mindset Upper pearl spirit and. Then we're going to be very clear on that what we expect of our people were setting up kind of bottom up rewards and incentives around those things and so i'll say you know behavior i if i'm gonna meeting in someone doesn't speak up. I will proactively ask everybody meeting before we make a decision and stuff like that or going to keep thirty minutes of every agenda free open time so people have issues talk so it's not hard stuff but you kind of put together the thirtieth those behaviors in now you start getting changed applied. The of really really involved. But i've been very crisp up front. There's kind of driving future state in seeking future state if you want to think about the opposing models not way. You know the way i talk about is. Ibm is very much. We plan yet. We get prescribed it and then we kind of execute. Where red hat we configure. We don't really plan because you're kind of configuring organization. Yup we can enable rather than really prescribing. We more engaged for executed. What

Because my sister amy head read it. That's fifty four our audio walk. We're could you walk with that. I can cover a lot of ground with account of monte cristo. The last time you were on the podcast it was to talk about your collection theft by finding in which you had many encounters over the years with people on the street and what i enjoy so much in this collection the best of me are they encounters in the airplane. I'm curious now if you're if you're having like a second wave of encounters on the street because you're spending so much time walking around driven by your fit bit around new york. Oh i mean. I'm spending a lot more time on the street but i think because maybe it's because people are wearing masks. We see more disconnected from one. Another i think you know when i did travel during this time it felt so good to be back in an airport so good to be back on an airplane. I felt so at home. And i felt like i back where i you know where i needed to be and backward. I belonged and all of it. You know even the long layover and the crummy hotel. All of it i welcomed it went down for breakfast. I had to go to indiana. And i went downstairs for breakfast and i brought my computer. 'cause i was going to work while at breakfast. Thought you idiot. You can't go breakfast Tell with just your computer because there's going to be two. Tv's playing and there's gonna be music. You need your headphones to blot. All that out hired. I forgotten crazy. How much. I forgot just know the nine months that i wasn't allowed to travel. There are so many great airplane stories in this collection. So it's interesting to hear you say that you miss air travel because of your airplane stories sort of exhibit the worst of humanity and thinking. Probably the most obvious one is standing by which is just a classic. You really do still like air travel because to me it feels like you write about it. It brings out the worst in humanity. Remember when i was yelling. And i would watch like johnny carson and so of the comedians would talk about air travel and i thought gee dot they have anything else talk about. But and then as i grew older i realized. Oh that's what they spend all their time right. So that's where. I spent all my time and so that was why i had so many stories about it but i do think it brings out the course in people and also i think there's a real divide between people who travel a lot and people who don't when i went to north carolina couple months ago. I had a long layover in charlotte. And i said to hugh my boyfriend. Who's with me. Why are all these people traveling now. These people who haven't traveled in years and he said how do you know. They haven't traveled in years. I said there suitcases now like they weren't the suitcases with four wheels on them. There were the suitcases with two wheels. You know that people kind of lazily drag behind them see can trip over them right sign now of amateurs and he but because he doesn't travel that often he didn't know what i was talking about. Are there other ways in which airplane travel has changed that that will make its way into your work since corentin so many people are afraid to travel right now. I feel like bending over backwards to clean things. I mean i. It was interesting in north carolina. The governor put a mask mandate in place. Any just put it in place. And i would say maybe sixty percent of the people in the airport wore masks and the other forty war just really defiant expressions and then i traveled like a month later and then it was ninety. Nine percent of people had masks on. It

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.

And i mean we actually had a really fun chat before i hit the record button here where both myself and vinnie fire nation. We escaped california. We're not talking about the fires we're talking about the insane taxes which by the way vinnie. I don't know if you're so tracking this but they're raising state taxes to sixteen point five percent there that's just state taxes which is absolutely mind blowing. The only problem. I have with vinny to be honest with you. Fire nation is that he stopped about twelve hundred miles to short he. He needs to get into a boat even a canoe paddle out into the atlantic. Come a little self from virginia vinnie. Angle yourself down towards the equator. Don't stop to you. Hit puerto rico and come join the world of four percent my man come on you know what we actually talk about because you know my wife is european so i could be anywhere in the world. That has a computer. If i can run a computer could be anywhere in the world and it felt so good leaving california and going to a quote unquote normal state. But we've talked about it. You know.

Vitamin company was zero outside investors. Talk to us about that. How did you pull that off. Yeah i think you have my partner. Andy schreiber the vitamin business on the show at some point and what had happened was the whole time. I was in california to reason i went. There was to start up businesses.

Following a cash free merger announced last week the group will retain the name the hawks transparent parent company. Ns more and include the hawks in gleneagles in scotland and ecorse ten lifestyle brands including montreal s. l. s. monaco's executive editor. Josh bennett spoke to sharon has richer who ceo and founder of ns more. We've had a busy last couple of weeks and months the lockdown and we're we're delighted to emerge creating new joint venture with i call. Who the europe's largest hotel company and part of this joint venture really is a merger of their lifestyle brands alongside our lifestyle brands and collectively. This new joint venture becomes the world's largest and fastest growing lifestyle hospitality platform which is incredibly exciting. Because i've spent the last decade building and this move from ground up piece by piece having taken the halston from one hotel. In east london to cross europe and across the us will recently and of course taking taking gleneagles and reimagined it to the glorious playground once was in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s the geneticists or the sort of discussions with our core started several months ago. What was interesting. As part of our discussions was really getting to know. Akwa chairman and ceo. Sebastian buzzer and core of lifestyle. And what was cliff for them was. They were very keen to create an autonomous entity because they realized early on that really have lifestyle brands flourish. Create lifestyle brands that authentic until stories. It needed to be outside of a larger web or larger corporation and the second we both aligned and agreed on that vision. It made the beginnings of this joint venture incredibly easy to form the basis of if you think about lifestyle generally or son hotels and these are hotels that have a mission they have a porpoise. They tell stories through incredible interiors. They have restaurants and bars that are local favorites. They are more than just a hotel. They have incredible cultural programming. They have amazing events and this segment which has now become lifestyle has been one of the faucets going segments across the hotel industry. You know somebody always had global ambitions and scale at mind. The second this pandemic hit. I knew i needed to do something that was created. I need to do something that was slightly out of the box. And that field my desire and more to create this joint venture with that cool because what it's now done is allowed us scale like we've never historically had an accessing kids and regions that would never be able to access. You guys have done a great job of i. Suppose bringing people together selling people to people in in beautiful spaces. The other day you talked about there was growth. And you've undertaken particularly with the hawks. Turn group impressive and dare. I say fairly aggressive growth already. I don't know rome's number ten. Maybe i've got my numbers wrong but a a tremendous surge in the number of hotels and the identity of that brand being built around the world. Could you may be hone in on that vision. Little bit i mean. How many hotels do you want to open the markets. That you find most alluring as you look out at the end of twenty twenty and i suppose into q one q two q three next year. If there's one thing. I realized over the last six seven months is brands with purpose brands with a mission matter. And we've seen that. Even though our revenues have been hauled and some of our some of our hotels had to reduce capacity way doing substantially better than any of our competitors in that neighborhood purely because off brand stands out and i think it's me so much confidence that as we come out of this pandemic that hotels that so of the local communities that are in hotels that have more than just a bed for a night hotels that a narped utilitarian law substantially longer in those brands will live a lot longer. And that's giving me a lot of confidence that what we managed do so successfully in ten cities around the world with our collection of oh tells if we can now take that formula. And i don't mean formula in the sense of you re create things in exact the same way. The forming of frost is more about the mindset. How do you create products. You create brands that kind of inspire inspire discovery. And we've learned so much all these markets that we've kind of grown and it's really allowed us to hone in on what each hawks ten means in each of those communities so now we've got an opportunity to take the hawks ten david larger platform and even more communities so they can get a sense of what these hotels what a culturally relevant hotel feels like in some of the most exciting destinations in cities around the world. What's exciting for me about the future. Is that all learnings. We've had about taking the oxygen from one to a dozen two dozen all the learnings. We've had about reimagining gleneagles to nineteen twenty s glorious past those are amazing skills that we can now hold on on a wider global portfolio. There's some incredible brands in this portfolio. Such as twenty five hours mama shelter. That are incredibly authentic that have found a lead and i'm incredibly excited to now work with those founders and the founding teams to make those brands the best they could be and there's a bunch of brands that core of created through the in house teams and i can't wait to work with them to make those brands the best they could be. So we've got a really unique opportunity on a global scale now to harness all the amazing ways of how we worked as more the last decade in terms of course curiosity intensive of obsessive design in terms of really rethinking the digital experience in terms of partnering collaborating with incredible designers and artists and makers around the world to take that insight that knowledge that skill base that process and now redo it all over again across the portfolio brands. And i'm incredibly excited to showcase that not with ten hotels at twenty zero tells but hopefully several hundred hotels that we could build around the world over the next couple of years.
How Airline Pilot Jim Allen Got His Aviation Start In The Navy
"Tell us how you got your start in aviation a pay I grew up as an air. Force brat flu beef forty seven feet fifty twos in a one So i was always excited about aviation from that. My dad passed away when i was a teenager so I think that kind of cemented the hero worship for for my dad. You know in those days. And i just you know as always we we moved from you know we were on the air force base for a while we lived in iowa and then kansas after my dad passed away to live where my mom's parents were in a big open skies. And you're always looking up to see what was going on up there because you know. I was just kind of bored in small town. Kansas and My uncle taught me how to fly. When i was nineteen years old Down in rockport texas. What kind of airplane of piper warrior and I just you know even though it was a little stressful because he was kind of a screamer why it was it was i love going flying solo but when he was in the airplane i was just a little bit stressed out but i still have his His voice in the site you know in in my ear every time i'm not lined up for the centerline of it in even in a seven thirty seven. Now it's get get lined up with. What's wrong with you that just use a spring but it was i'm just curious You have a relative teaching to fly when you're not in the airplane. What was your relationship with him like. Yeah so i was staying in his In his house and that was it was just. It was a little stressful. But i in there were. There were times where he was like these. You really want to do this one. She just leave and things like that but when it was all said and done he was really proud. And i was proud and But i was his first and last student because nobody else wanted to deal with them. I guess but he. He came to my winging ceremony when i became a pilot And he was just proud a you know it is just the way life is. Sometimes you know it's not always good. It's not always bad. There's just getting bad mixed in but But i learned a lot. You know and i and i got the i got the license in like fifty five hours. I was there for two months from from zero to two private pilot just in the summer of nineteen eighty five. So that's the way to do a t to go. Full bore fly every day. If you can and get it out of the way right. Yeah and i saw that with the students that i flew with later so a way You go to college. I went to college at the university. Kansas and i was living in kansas can think. And why. why am i here in the first place. That's my mom's hometown. But i found out that the university of kansas was ranked in the top ten for aerospace engineering. And i was like well. That's pretty cool. You know so. That's that's what i wanted to learn. It was a tough program. But i got through it Actually with honors But i decided to join nato. otc The air force at the time was They weren't offering pilot slots Two people who were getting scholarships Be an engineer for the air force. And then you would compete for a scholarship later in a it just seemed a little too much ambiguity. Matt's of navy was saying we'll we'll give scholarship. You can figure out if you're gonna be a pilot toward the end of the program in You know it's needs of the navy. And all that kind of stuff so so turned out. When i got selected if i they told me i was going to be a pilot and then like they. You know four weeks later. I haven't graduated yet. They said well. We're sorry that we were badly in the back sears. Nfo's nfl stance from naval flight. Officer so i you know. Tail between my legs went down to pensacola tried to figure out a way to become a pilot and they said no dice Were just short on. Nfo's and that's in. You have a minute refractory error in your left dive. It's keeping you from minnesota. But i was twenty twenty in gotten in like six months before six months after they probably would let me go to the pilot program but at the time they just they were starving for back. Seniors in that may have been a blessing in disguise. Because like a year after. I got down there. They cut the bottom third out of pilot training navy wide because of the cold war drawdown and there were guys get sent home. We're getting cintas supply or know. They were surface warfare. That kinda thing and so it was. It was kind of an ugly time in the navy late eighties early nineties.
Why You Should Work in 90-Minute Spurts
"What's more effective working nonstop for five hours or working in three ninety minute? Intervals spaced out with twenty minute breaks. It might seem like that first option is best if you're one of those workers who skips lunch and doesn't leave your desk until five but according to science you'll be better off taking those breaks. It all comes down to our treaty and rhythms like Circadian Rhythms all trading rhythms referred to a sort of body clock that cycles regularly throughout our lives but while Circadian Rhythms Keep Track of the twenty four hour day night cycle ole trading rhythms role in cycles that last between ninety and one hundred and twenty minutes during that time your brain wave frequencies rise and fall basically after. You spend a longtime concentrating on one task. Your brain needs a break so you get a natural law and concentration every hour and a half to two hours. Studies have found that all sorts of things are affected by these cycles like alertness and especially attention and nineteen ninety-three study by psychologist anders. Eriksson found that. The best violinists all practiced in three ninety minute chunks with breaks in between a nine thousand nine hundred five study found. The people generally maintain their sleep cycles after waking as periodic sleepiness cycles. That's why experts swear by a rest activity cycle that builds breaks into the workday. So now that you know. It's backed by science and actually the more effective choice. It's time to start taking those twenty minute. Breaks try setting a timer for ninety minutes and when the timer goes off you get up. Take a walk grab a snack or maybe even just rest your eyes for a bit. Your brain could use the break. I started doing this. Setting ninety. Minute timer is specially when I work from home because when I work from home. That's what I'm most notorious for rolling out of bed heading over to my desk sitting down at nine. Am and not getting up until like two in the afternoon. Yeah and for people who tend to do that. I think this is a much better fix than some of these other productivity hacks like the Pomodoro technique where you just work twenty five minute chunks. That seems too short for me. I get really immersed and suddenly the time's up and I'm out of it. Yeah a long story short. You need a break. How often you take. It is kind of up to you. But at least once every hour and a half. Or
