US peace deal leaves Afghans to determine post-war landscape
"The US signed a deal with the Taliban that may lead to a full withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan since it began in two thousand and one the war has claimed the lives of more than two thousand four hundred American troops secretary of state Mike Pompeo is just back from the signing ceremony Indo hot he got off the plane just a short while ago and thank you for being here Mr secretary thank you so this is significant and according to the deal that was released the U. S. will bring down troops to eight thousand six hundred the next a hundred thirty five days and then if conditions are met a total withdrawal within fourteen months the presence of yesterday bad things happen will go back in what's the benchmark their yes man this was a historic day American blood and treasure been expended in this place for an awfully long time we went there after nine eleven no one still feels the anger of that day anymore than I do but it was time and the Taliban knew it was time president trump has allowed us to take the fight to the Taliban these last two years and we have done so that's why they for the first time have announced that they're prepared to break with their historic ally al Qaeda who they've worked with the much the dent detriment of United States of America you can sit go read the document the Taliban have now made the break they said they will not permit terror to be thrust upon anyone including United States from Afghanistan this is historic in that way and no one should underestimate the trump administration you can see our work on counter terror whether thou Baghdadi consul Rimi how work that we did against customs woman this is a president who is committed to defending and protecting the American people will do that every place we battle against her whether that's Afghanistan or any of the other dozens of places we push back each and every day how long would it take to get U. S. troops out because you're saying this is based on conditions that means the Taliban has to follow through on a few things yes what would make the present hit the brakes and stop the withdrawal look we get given hypotheticals what what it would take exactly but there is a detailed set of commitments that the Taliban have made about the levels of violence that can occur the nature of what's gonna take place we are hopeful that in the coming days that will be in traffic and the go she Asians the comments as well that has not happened before it's going to be rocky and bumpy no one no one is under any false illusions that this won't be a difficult conversation but the conversation for the first time in almost two decades will be among the Afghan people and that's the proper place for that conversation to take place what we're prepared to do what it takes to ensure that we keep America safe we've asked everyone there to reduce the levels of violence both the Afghan national security forces and the Taliban but president trump said he's going to meet with the Taliban the near future when where's at camp David I don't know when I don't know where I'm very compress trump wants to make sure that everyone in Afghanistan understands that the United States is committed to making sure that this conversation take place we've been at this for an awful long time you recounted the loss of American life there's a better path for the Taliban now know this because of the work that we've done and president trump will be actively engaged in helping us get the conditions right and beginning this journey that the first step was taken in daylight and just that statement alone is kind of amazing you are the first US cabinet official to ever meet with a member of the cut Taliban I think you actually met with one of the founding members of the Taliban who is involved you call them terrorists in the past you still consider the Taliban terrorists they have an enormous amount of American blood on their hands and apparently a partnership still with al Qaeda they signed a document in the German my met with agreed that they would break that relationship that they would work alongside of us to destroy deny resources too and have a credit depart from that place and you trust that don't trust anything we're going to deliver it's about actions the agreement set out the conditions that set up the space but know this deal doesn't depend upon trusting anyone it has a deep complex well thought out multi month negotiated verification complex in mechanism by which we can observe and hold every member of the agreement accountable will do that it's not about trust it's about what happens on the ground in the days that follow

The Best Movie Soundtrack Songs Of 2019 | Movies
"I have a very special show today later. In this podcast I have an interview with Robbie Robertson one of the founding members of the band a significant figure in movie history as well. Who HAS COLLABORATED WITH? Martin Scorsese over the years. He has a new documentary that he participated in the basically tells the story of his life and the work of the band called. Once were brothers so I hope you'll stick around for that and inspired by that conversation. I had to invite on Ringer Staff Writer Rob Villa. Who is one of the funniest and smartest people I know about music? I Rob She's we'll thank you. It's an honor to be here of course alot rob you write about music and movies at the ringer as well and quite deftly and I think the use of music in movies has always been frankly an obsession of mine and I suspect that you are also a sophisticated thinker about this idea. Is that fair to say? Sophisticated is a strong word. But let's go with your role with your a guy who has a functioning brain that watches movies with music in them. Is that fair to say Aisha's? Amd during sonic the HEDGEHOG. That's the way I would describe my relationship with music and movies me I was that guy I feel like there's a lot we know there's a there's a conscientiousness about choosing songs in movies now because we grew up watching scorsese movies and then the movies of all the people who watched. Martin Scorsese movies and start making movies of their own and so the use of the pop song. We're not talking about score here. We're talking about pop music appearing in films you know what is your. What is your sense of? Who Does it well and sort of what goes into making a good choice for something that's really obvious or really obscure. I think the obviousness I see a lot more in prestige. Tv generally like that's the plate. Like any use of radiohead. Almost across the board. Like I I like a lot of Westworld but just the way that Westworld is uses those pop songs you know the old style piano version of pop songs. It's just you're just sort of leaching off that songs energy like the the cash that it already has and you're just sort of stealing and implanting it into your TV show or your movie like it's there's a difference between stealing a song soul and like taking a song and building a new universe around it like sort of recreating it in re-energizing it it's a it's a great point. I'll never forget the moment I watched the pilot of Ozark. Which is the last the last episode of ours. Ozark that I've ever watched and at the end of it Decks dark by radiohead began playing and I was like. Oh this is that JOE now. I mean no disrespect to say Chris Ryan. Who's a huge fan of that series but actually that choice indicated to me what the creators of the show thought they were doing and it wasn't for me you know it just didn't Didn't click with what despite liking radiohead and Jason Bateman and. I knew that there was a pretentiousness that I was not going to connect with their What do you think makes for a good song choice in a movie? I think it has to be at least a little unexpected. It has to re- contextual. Is it a little bit like I? There are instances where obviousness is what you need and I think there are a few of those and my list here but I I think. In general you need some element of surprise some just more gratuitous are just more surprising way of using it than what you would expect. Do you think it's important to saying something about character or the scene itself or because one of the things that that Robertson said when he and I talked which I thought was interesting was the he really likes the contrast he moments. That's the moment when you take a very sweet song. Said it against a very violent moment or you take a very sweet moment and give it something more braces and that's obviously a hallmark of a lot of the people that are best known for choosing songs and movies you know. Think of Quentin Tarantino or fincher. Scorsese are all these people that I talk about endlessly on this show. Do you think that the that music can play such a profound role in telling a story in that way? I think so. I mean you can go too far in that the phenomenon of every movie trailer now using like a really slow down creepy version of a pop song like you think. Fight THE FI. The fifty shades of grey beyond say series. You know like I suicide squad. I think did that. You know you can go too far in that direction and and just use it entirely as irony like. Here's a really sweet song to contrast with an ugly thing. But Yeah I mean. That's that's sort of an overused tropes at this point at the time in the heyday in the early reign of those people those directors like. Yeah that was a really effective use of contrast. So we're here to do a top five list. You'RE GONNA share your five favorite needle drops in movies and I'M GONNA share my five favorite needle drops. Now I don't know your picks and you don't know my picks you almost ruined this podcast by accidentally sharing those picks and I would like you. I'm I apologize profusely and I apologize for my choices. I think this is going to be yelling at me in the next twenty minutes. That's my concern. You know what my concern is is just being too basic right. There are some things that are sort of undeniably signature moments in movies and music especially in the last twenty to twenty five years when when I think this phenomenon has really picked up. Steam and my choices are not songs that were written for movies. They are entirely songs that had previously existed before the film came along. Is that true for you too? I think in all but one case my number five. That's not true but I think that's an important thing that you have to have a prior. Ideally you have a prior relationship with that song that the movie changes. That's what makes a really good moment for me. Not all of them but that's the platonic ideal. I absolutely love that. I probably have one song that that is out runs an opposition to that idea. But that's a great
The Oscars of Podcasting? First 'Golden Mics' Awards to Debut in 2021
"Just GONNA cover one story today. And it's a big one the story of the Golden Mikes plus last week. I promised we touch on podcast movement. This story has it all. You may have heard about this story via twitter or if you were at podcast movement last week from inside podcasting here goes last Friday February fourteenth wonder. Ceo or non Lopez announced the formation of the podcast academy quote a new membership driven not for profit organization of Independent podcasters and industry professionals dedicated to elevating awareness and excitement podcasts. As a major media category and advancing knowledge and relationships in and around the business end quote while Lopez leading the charge the academy's founding members include Donald Albright from tender foot. Tv Eric Dane from stitcher. On Your Grun men from NPR carry Hoffman from PR X. Courtney Holt from spotify Christie Mayor Ball from Sony Music Rekkem or who is independent Lawrence bore from criminal and Elliott Tavakoli from spoke media. The podcast academy will host an award show called the Golden Mikes in two thousand twenty one note. The membership in the academy is open to individuals not companies or organizations. The reaction to this news was mixed. While some applauded the effort to create an organization that could help elevate the industry others wondered whether Lopez was aware of the similarly named Academy of podcasters which held a now defunct award ceremony for years and still index longtime podcasters into a hall of fame despite skipping a year inductions will resume soon. None of the hall of fame inductees were contacted by Lopez prior to the announcement and many expressed shock that they were learning of it on social media adding fuel to the fire. While the PODCAST Academy's current leadership includes Independent. Podcasts makers virtually all them hail from the world of Radio Not podcasting. It didn't help that. Bloomberg article announcing the award's existence described the media as having been quote born into the halls of public radio and quote. Now before I jump in with my take I encourage you to go to inside dot com slash podcasting to read the entire article that I'm quoting in it. Sky CHATS WITH ELSIE. Escobar of she podcasts. Who was a hall of fame inductee about her reaction to the PODCAST Academy News? It's a timely conversation about how the new podcast scene think. Big Money and movie and TV deals will interact with the original podcasting. Think podcasting circa two thousand five. Go check it out now. What do I think I'm excited by? Anything in the PODCASTS world. That will continue to draw attention to the medium. I think more and more people should be finding and listening to podcasts. However I echo elsie sentiments. I do wish that there was some acknowledgement of the prior similar award ceremony. The question remains where did those hall of fame inductees stand how will their awards be acknowledged by the Golden Mikes? We'll see where this all

Julia Mejia on The Art People Podcast
"My when I was a kid. I struggled with depression right. You know it was hard right and so writing was a form of therapy for me and it's still Israel. I think that we have to. We have to celebrate the arts more. And that's the first thing that take away in the public schools that took away the art. They take away the things that are help us feel better about ourselves. You know making us feel like individuals and give giving US Agency to and the hope that we can do whatever I wanna do and I know you've given a lot of people hope and I really appreciate your doing that. I read a little bit about some of the organizations. You help create. Tell me a little bit about my guy. Termine divas lease divas so back in. Twenty fifteen I was getting to the point where I was tired of elected officials knocking on my door asking me for their vote and then we don't see them after the elections right so I was part of this Organization Call Family Independence Initiative and I decided I applied for a small little social impact grant to launch this initiative. And it's a volunteer led Of the grant they will pay for the food and the location just logistic stuff like that. It was a nonprofit was a volunteer. Led Initiative is not a organization but we really made a name for ourselves. We create its base for people who had never engaged in the political conversation to work. In collaboration with elected officials in what we would do is instead of allowing elected officials to sit on panels looking all Q. What we did is our elected official dialogues where speed dating and we would have them facilitate their own conversations and so we wanted them to recognize that they work for us and it was in them doing us. Any favors is that we were here too. We did that intentionally to level the playing field so that the constituents are coming in knew that this was a collaborative conversation and that was not this US versus them that one person at power over the other so that really created the type of environment where elected officials and constituents could be in the same space having the same conversation and through that work. I met a Yana Presley Congresswoman Ileana Presley today and there were times when she would come into our spaces when we would host different types of dialogues was. She wasn't even slated to speak but she would show up because she knew in our space. We always had the real real talk and it was in the one was paying us. We were doing this because we want it to be registered thousands of people to vote and this was all because we were tired and we wanted to change the way. We did things in the Boston. And then I also launched a nonprofit which I was the founder and the Executive Director of a nonprofit called C. Plan which is a collaborative parent leadership action network and that came at a time when there was a big divide between district and charter parents and I wanted to create space for parents to have one conversation because we knew no matter where our kids ended up there was work to do. And so we do parent leadership development so we train parents on how to become more engaged in their school and then we work with the schools so they can culturally responsibly. Receivers in ways that would make sense so we provide training. It's a dual capacity model. But when I won the election and I didn't create the organization so that I can always be the leader of it. I created it so that it can grow on its own. And that's what real organizing about. So we have two of our founding members that are now the executive directors of our organization. Yes yeah yeah I mean but since I was a kid though I've always been engaged. You know formally or informally in every space that I've been. I felt like had to lock down. I worked at MTV if you read anything about political correspondent. Yeah Yeah I was the first time reporter. I'm covering presidential elections for two thousand. I was told you either go melon. It was in two thousand. I covered that presidential election and then I worked at MTV for ten years as a producer years ten years and I had to fight for every story that I pitched but here I am I changed. I changed I even when I was there. I changed the way they reported on issues. That were impacting black and Brown folks. I did a story about the census. I did a lot of separate representation. So you know. I've always been this way you know and I feel like running and winning and you know we we only you gotTa tell me the story. You want by one vote. I know so. If you're you don't think your vote matters Brady Brady. Who's part of our team said? I was the one vote wonder told me that state. Yeah so let me just tell you so first of all we set out to do this campaign in a way that was really a grassroots and it wasn't because we wanted to because we had to. We had less money than everyone else. We have a lot of political backing. And but I always said that. I had rather have lost. An uplifted are people that have won an elected US along the way because nobody really pays attention to black and brown communities way so we were in laundry mats hair salons. We were just out in these streets and we would talk to everybody even whether they were registered to vote or whether they were voter not because this was really about engagement and so we came in it was there was fifteen candidates in the primary the first in September and we went from fifteen to one of the top eight and I came in fifth in the top four slots go on but I came in fifth out of the eight so everybody was really surprised that for a first time candidate. I was only a few thousand votes away from the top. Four vote getters surprised too but then November came and we ended up like winning by ten votes. That was crazy. I was even afraid to announce their claim it but we did. And then we found out that the margin was to tie that we're going to go into a recount. And you know I was like. Let's go because this is about democracy. Let's go every vote matters. Let's make sure that it does yes. And so we headed into a recount and It was like three weeks God. The recount was lasted like three days but leading up to we had to collect signatures to petition to get right. Yeah Yup and financial debt right now as a result of it but I will say that My lawyer who did my recount was the same lawyer who did the recount for Al Gore when he ran in two thousand about life coming in full certain on my life is full of full circles so when the boat the final was announced that neigh my opponent we went to bed with another cliffhanger that she was thinking about going to court and at that point you know I had reached the point where it was like you know I was all good for the recount. I was all in. Let's go was Markazi but to take this now into the court system where people of color don't already believe in the court system. It just felt like we were going to. It just didn't feel right to me. I was going to go all in for the court was good for it but if it made me feel some kind of way but what happened was is that there are a lot of people who were voting for the first time because we engaged first time voters we engaged. naturalized citizens that normally only vote presidential races in the way our ballot is composed says right name in so some folks who filled out the ballot not only circled my name but then they also wrote my name in and that invalidated their boat. Oh no and so we have to fight for those votes C. And you know it really helped us understand how much we need do. In educating first time voters on how to fill out ballot they were they were like. Yeah we want her so bad. We're going to pick her her name because they but yeah those ballots. We're going to be challenged in court. So yeah
The Potential Health Benefits of CBD
"So what is CB day CBD's otherwise known as dial on it say product derived from cannabis. It's a type of kind of aid. which are the chemicals that are naturally found marijuana plants but it doesn't create the high effect which is caused by the psychoactive psychoactive agent? THC which is another kind of annoying. So we've seen explosion in the number of CD products on the market as this growing awareness around the potential health benefits associated with CD lot of the perpetrators of benefits of CBD comes with anecdotal evidence.

He consulted Dr Tattoos Lose Pavlova. Who is an interventional sports and spine specialists who often treats patients using alternative pain management techniques? And he often uses.

He does however indicate they're still owns the scientific research to be conducted properly. Validate these claims. So what Bret Williams final now. She started this experiment. Loss of Ma fighting and training so recovery is of importance for him so he found the liquid form of CBD. The the oil didn't necessarily eighties recovery quickly or any more so than any other means. Recovery was all for a few days time. He did feel less groggy in the mornings. which could support the claims of an hard sleep? Obviously thanks to the rolling stick. He found to soothe his muscles. More mmediately than the oil said again. Potentially supporting the claims claims of aiding your recovery topical cream he actually just found to be overly messy so he brought a stick to the stick however this unidentified information shows is that they does show Oh some promise for CBD products actually back up their claims. We're hearing amounted multiple benefits but they're all potentially some side effects and again. Obviously this depends ends on the person it's biological individuality the Horse Studies which reviewed the clinical data an animal studies associate from CD and it safety. And although they found that it's Austin GonNa favorable safety profiles humans that can be side effects with todd style changes appetite or weight on again it really does differ depending depending on the person and it might not affect you but it could so I would say don't try. CB Dave for whatever objective you have to release muscles will help alleviate teens it without consulting your doctor and find out whether it could be right for you but very interesting to see the space develop and see if there's more scientific evidence release to actually show that it is a natural actual method to to eight with depression.

I think are like like absolutely terrible as well as some of the people that I think are credible and that's the truth like I i. I'm inspired on both ends. I would say that the people that I admire admire the most are the the courageous protocol. Sanders the really really smart really really smart people that were like you know what I'm going to quit my job at goodwill well. I'M GONNA quit my job at exit Amazon. I'M GONNA leave. My you know really cushy like tenure role at Stanford I'M GONNA try and change the world. I'm crazy inspired by those people. I'm like you are really really inspiring. And I'm super happy working alongside some of those incredible I I completely agree And the last question we have since we're running out of time here. If this was the first podcast getting into the space heard. What would you want them to know? Was One rule of thumb if this had you know thirty seconds. And that's all they listen to this podcast. What's the most important takeaway Ask As many questions as you possibly can and I I I always like to ask why. At least three times There's like some some psychological rule there but ask the question. Why three times in Crypto right like I'm suing the script The question is in the context of ripped. Oh absolutely I'd ask ask as many questions you possibly can and And then the other thing I'm I'm cheating things the second thing is don't be afraid. I mean like everybody. That's involved in Crypto at some point and felt like it was way over overbearing in way too overwhelming. We've all had that sort of like self doubt MAG Zaidi like I'm not smart enough to get this. I'm not sharp enough to understand. This and the truth is like you get past acid. You learn a little bit more all sorts to click. And you're like Oh. Wow this is so interesting so I would say like ask a lot of questions. Don't be afraid to ask all the questions in No that you're not.

"Single protocol. But we just can't take time in one of the things we've been working on is making it easier and easier for us to add new protocols to perform so every month that goes by. It's faster and easier for us to add a new protocol so so this is a baseline. We're really excited about that In some of the earliest the earliest days to be entirely. Honest is like won't be I I started to do is like air neither. Were you spending time in. The community is getting to know the founders in Oser like looking looking the technology itself like spending time things like get hub which is like a code repository looking at like stuff that was happening in the code. Those being written. You're like Oh this is awesome. Looks like it's GonNa be really cool. very subjective process. We were just picking like the things we liked which were based off those things that that has gotten a little bit. We've matured a little bit in that respect and that we have some criteria that we look for Were mostly working on networks. So one of the things that we do as you know is that we allow folks to run nodes very easily but in particular staking participation nodes. And so we're pretty heavily really focused on proof of stake networks in without getting into like the whole technical detail the difference between proven Steak it's a different type of consensus mechanism. Back in is a different type of way of securing a blockchain network that lends itself really really well to a platform like ours. So so we've been Mostly focused on proof steak networks Those are the majority of them. Were kind of still to come out a lot of projects that were funded through twenty sixteen twenty seventeen in two thousand eighteen. Some of them were in this for like ICO craze of of of of twenty seventeen and these networks are about to come out so things like polkadot serum dotto Absalon. AH NEAR NEAR protocol. We've got a whole roadmap. Can you tell grams another one. We've got a whole road map of protocols are about to come out and then We have a whole bunch of articles that we do support. Now's things like e credit now. Granted Tassos Cosmos like like. You mentioned as far as the types of networks that we work with so one is kind of like been focused mostly on proof of stake And then We were sort of impartial. As to the function of the protocol so some protocols designed to be a store of value in some are meant to be a sport contracting platform summer meant into the decentralized video transloading decentralized storage we refer to resolve this protocol agnostic and botching agnostic in that we want to support as many of them as we possibly can We think that the best way to make the ecosystem flourish is to make it easier for any of these networks and we work really really closely with protocol teams from early on if you want to get involved by trails and you WanNa get on the platform reach out. Test like super friendly team at were were pretty involved in a lot of the The protocol team communities a lot of these different blockchain protocols. You'll have like dischord or a slack or a a riot. Chat business like chat chat room. I'm for the entire community and ecosystem. We pretty involved in motives. Spend time talking so you can always see us in the room to a lot of a lot of our team uses the the handle like Bison and your name is like mine Vice Joe. It's Joe since we started in So we're we're often like lurking in a lot of those channels as well but yeah so we have a lot of people were process now trying to admit as we possibly can you can always reach rejoin us obviously to hide trails. Darko awesome. Yeah Yeah and and you know the majority of new protocols we add are often like people in either reach out or wreck or referrals from like other protocol teams Jones. It's mostly it's mostly enterprises and stuff that is reaching out. It's not like your average Joe who's like. Hey I want to stake my house or whatever. It's large scale corporations. We have It's mostly it's mostly bigger companies It's mostly like the bigger institutions amber. What we do people reach out? It'd be like hey like I wanNA stick my toes and we do a lot. We help a lot of people in the right direction. The more than anything else they ask at some point them where they should go. If we don't offer a product or service if he can do ourselves we can work with them directly. I mean we we will point them in the right direction where they should stay. You're who are the couple of folks that they should look at okay to again like all is buried of trying to make sure that there's more transparency transparency and openness in the CRYPTO space. Like I was a little put off by there was just a little bit too much like shadiness going on in the ecosystem for a little while and I was like. We're going to do this like let's do this about Gordon. Let's make it really clear. Honest how healthy ecosystem. We really do have to help each other because this is really difficult. I remember I stopped being a note operator. Maybe a year ago and the biggest challenges I faced was really poor. Documentation on someone's get hub where they just assumed assumed i. Was You know a software engineer. Yeah but I really needed you know things that I could just simply copy and paste including dependencies that you know almost Software engineers already had but most normal people never would And it's extremely frustrating. I'd spend a whole day trying to get something up and going and you know I've been assistant madman for you know fifteen years and if I couldn't figure this out I thought well maybe it's not just something wrong with me maybe. This product just isn't mature and ready at all. Come check back in a year or so. What are the biggest challenges today? That node operators are minors right into. Has it gotten any better so now it's still really hard. Which is why we built this platform in why people love us out so if you came to bison trail today you could do all the stuff that you just described ride by just clicking one button and that's why what we think is what we think we do is cool so all of us describe going to get a you know even copying pasting is hard at finding what you need to be based finding all dependencies making sure and then once you have it up and running making sure it stays up and running that it's upgraded? Did it's updated that it's it's running on the right fork running on the right now. We're that just takes like a constant tremendous amount of work and we. He built a platform that automatically does all of that. So that's our tech. Does it automatically for you so you can literally come. Click do buttons and do that on Cosmas tomorrow around us or outlander by so Jo. So for so. I Have Tassos that I'm staking through my trust wallet. Yes and it gives me the option of staking like maybe twenty different validated or something. Can you kind of walk us through. What's actually happening here? I'm just looking. I just is what my seven percents. Apr On the test does that I'm staking. But what am I doing yet so great. There's a great example in that also also cannot illustrates our relationship in the system. So in a hypothetical sense like a company like trust wallet would come to buy some trails and is a hey we would like to add stating to trust wallet however it takes a lot of time and effort in work to run tests bakers behind the scenes sued since so they will. They will basically use our platform to run all of that infrastructure that they need to be able to to support that activity for their users out in the mail added a button. Like your seven per year gets presented. If you like steak your as use as we will click a button in those terrorists will be essentially signaled. Signaled that you would let your using one of these valid eaters to be able to to Stick your disease now. I can explain a little bit more like what's actually actually happening. There Aba just for like a high level that's kind of how our our relationship in the ecosystem works a similarly that list of validates that you're choosing from Any one of those could also be using by central's platform instead of having to manually go through the process of like Ron Baker. And there's a good chance some of them are and uh-huh and that's what we're we're really excited about because you know we. We enabled teams to be able to do that. Enable team deal with this Guy Wanna run Tesla's pinker and I want to be in that list and I don't end for those who are listening tests. Baker is just like a the equivalent of bitcoin minor. Yeah exactly but in approve who've of steak network so without getting again without getting like to technical bill about how proof of stake works really what you're doing you have some Tesla's us in your saying I trust that. The crypto one. Oh One valid eater in this list is a good actor and they are going to do do the right thing. They're going to produce sign and signed blocks on the Tassos network in the right way in a safe way in a secure way so I'm going to take my twenty dollars and I'm going to give it to essentially without giving them the money but I'm in a signal twenty dollars worth of desserts. I'm GONNA signal correct. The crypto one-to-one validate is the one that I wanted to sort of put my stake behind. I WANNA put my money behind. And then the the for instance in this analogy the Crypto one-to-one validate her every time that they sign a block or they validated They're getting a reward. which is part of the inflationary mechanism the of the entire ecosystem essentially? And then I as you know the CRYPT WANNA one delegate or get to send everybody who's staking me a little bit of coin join I guess yes. So the crypto one will invalidate her would get paid for signing a block in the idea. Is that you then split that with the folks that have put their money behind you that have staked staked behind you and that's why these are called proof state networks. You're putting your state on somebody else. It's like when a poker player is going around and somebody's like okay. I'm GONNA stake you and they give you the money to play with and then if you win you know and if you do well then you get paid back plus interest okay very cool. I like it I like it in the really interesting. The Subaru interesting thing year. Is that the more stake that one of these validates has the more blocks they will sign and so it ends up being like proportional to how much steak actually accumulate. So you and I both put our money behind the CRYPTO. If they WANNA one dominator they'll sign more blocks and we'll be able to to. Is there a formula for how to maximize what I I will be getting in return like should I be staking the number one of the number two were like how do I choose to state. I don't know the difference between any of these twenty five people like uh-huh how how does a guy figure it out. Yeah it's it's actually. It's that's a tricky question in that it really depends on the network so it in the case of tests that actually. You shouldn't really matter. There's a whole bunch of math behind. Why should really matter that we definitely don't have to get into but really it shouldn't really matter? Some protocols does but the majority of them. It doesn't what does matter is that they're secure and reliable that they're not gonNA lose any you know they're not gonNA lose their own keys. They're not going to go down and miss miss blocks away you could do. Is You put your stake behind. A validated in that valid eater has really bad infrastructure and their power goes out or their internet goes out or they're bad at managing it upgrade well And they get blocks to sign but don't actually sign the blocks. They get punished for doing that. Or they're are even worse. They signed blocks twice which is against narrow that that you could lose money as well so okay so if you're really looking for is like security reliability liability and that's the kind of stuff that we do really well In the ideas we can make it so that you know small crypto one validate or could compete with like a big cling gates. Jason Alligator visas are do that do just as well as they do awesome. So let's move on to something that is extremely In the public eye right now. It's a little foundation or Little Association called Belieber Association which you are a founding. A member of is that correct. Yeah yeah that's right so we are. We're in association member. I officially joined the Libra Council in October. October Mid October is when we got signed the paperwork saying like yes. We're an official. The official Association Officially Castle October of this year October Robert last October this year so just a few months ago. Now okay. Wonderful two months ago. I've got so many question answer.

There is probably the most boring thing next to. I'm falling asleep in Church but I assure you it is quite interesting seeing the evolution that we're going through. Can you imagine actually being a note operator and being excited about it rice I I. It's not for me personally. I'm just not the super technical. But what if there was someone that would handle all the technical stuff and you can just simply kick back and watch your profits role in well. It's pretty interesting that you mentioned that because we have a very special guests. Who might be able to do that for us with you telling me there's competition petition for me I am? I am indeed Joe it. That's okay that's okay because you know I really need to catch up on some sleep. Maybe in this Guy Joola loose can take over for from here. Joe Welcome to the show it guys. Thanks thanks for having me. You guys are a complete riot. We like to have fun here and you know we bring on. CEO's like yourself CEO of Bison trail we bring on all sorts of fun people talk about the future sure of cryptocurrency and sometimes it's a drab topic. You know blockchain super technical so we'd like to keep things light. We like to keep things not super technical And we'd like to paint a really bullish picture of the future. Because that's why guys like you and I are in this right. We're building businesses in blockchain. Because we think that this is a thing that's going to re architect the world and change every and speaking of Painting pictures you know the name Bison trail immediately we gotta talk about the elephant in the room here or vice. No Room Sir. We're we're thinking of Bison trails what inspired this name because I just got back from Texas and I was watching some animals walking around thinking trails. You guys all our picture of the same thing I'm thinking right now what inspired the name Bison trail. Tell us the story awesome. Yeah actually I'm not. I'm not convinced that I've actually told this story to anyone sort of on record yet so you know my ad but I doubt it to get the exclusive here I. That's big for us. I'm happy I'm happy to share at this one. This one is exclusive So through the story behind the name is My co-founder Aaron. And I am before we started building this company at one of the things that we did a really as a hobby. As a aside project we actually built a a pretty large for two people proof of work. Mine in for those for folks who maybe aren't as familiar with work. It's basically like the mechanism that folks used to mine. bitcoin basically need a bunch of power in a bunch of specialized machines in you them somewhere bitcoin is. It's pretty cool. You can have one in your house. In a generates a lot of heat in one winter a few years ago ago I used to the heat my apartment onto because they're pretty noisy. Save big on the heater bill because you just got a double dip. I'm running all these graphics cards. That are spending he exactly We did that. We did that for a little while. But it's so so Erin and I decided added that we wanted to Part of this is the genesis of trails. Mike how we got started. We decided we wanted to as a as a project. Bill outta mind cause one to understand Dan watching infrastructure a lot better by some trails watching infrastructure company Little bit more about that But we actually. We spent six six six or seven months traveling around the United States Two different places is one of these. You mean when you're building out a mind from the ground ended up. You need really inexpensive power and you also need like a really great climate That isn't too hot 'cause because he's like you just said like the these miners put a lot live. He like he's you've youthful. He is he. Do you need a place. That's that's pretty cool. Climate and a lot of times. Those two things exist in very mountainous regions in unlike the Midwest or the Pacific northwest and so we ended up spending a ton of time in Wyoming and at the time Wyoming was going through this process of breath changing his regulation around like crypto currencies or moving to be very crypto forward We spent a lot of time. They're scooping on different areas in. I don't know folks so this but the the state of Wyoming Vice and when we ultimately came to the point being to name or company At Daming something is just like an absolute terror. It's so hard I don't know Maybe you guys named Crypto WanNa one podcast was like a came into stroke uh-huh genius or in a in a shower thought one day. I don't know who wasn't taken yet. I I've always had a lot of trouble naming stuff because you you stick with it for forever afterwards and and you know I feel like I'm never happy with it so we're naming the company and we're like we're building very technical very very deep. Technical Company is infrastructure company. Kind of sort of two options here. Either make it really obvious pragmatically chain you. An infrastructure DOT COM or. Something like that or we do something. That's kind of not really has anything to do with blockchain and and I think like our personalities a little bit more to To the ladder absolute like. Why don't we do hat tip to some of the early worked? We didn't the space and we named after Bison Bison what we found out when we were wildes bison are these incredible animals. They almost went extinct. There's there's the whole story behind this meat. We actually have some info on our website of by San and why we named company the way we did they almost went extinct. They're also incredibly powerful and they were really early helping pioneers removing from the East Coast to the west coast of the United States and they paved paths called by some trails on the pioneers would follow as they were going across the country in so we were like this is super cool. It's a really cool concept You know we as a company trying to pave the path forward for this entire industry it just felt a lot more in line with our personalities so relentless. Let's go with him and I love it. It's so descriptive. And it just reminds me of like going like when I was was like an AP US history and learning about like Lewis and Clark and all the people that were coming across It just reminds me of that. We're trailblazers right. This is literally blazing trails. That's the that's the idea. You know the other thing is like let's have fun with it. You know what I mean like. Let's let's enjoy ourselves one of the things that Aaron and I are happy about his we love what we do. We take what we do very seriously but we don't take ourselves too seriously in the sense that looked like we like to have fun and naming an infrastructure company. Money is maybe one of the most fun things you get to do it infrastructure. I'm just kidding. We have lots of fun but I think it's a great name especially now that exploded. There's a lot of depth and it's pretty cool. Thanks thanks appreciate it soon. Forward onto the show now. Sorry about my tangent disrupting everything is ice. But you know that's what I'm here for. Okay why should the average person care about this new thing called blockchain a man who it is a doozy Yeah so you know. I've been involved in blockchain space for in some way shape or form for for quite a few years now Mostly because of a nerd and have been a nerd for a really long time my my whole life when when this concept zapped of of Well really ridgely bitcoin. This concept cryptocurrency in Boston It really it really It grabbed my interest in the sense that it was perfect intersection of like really crazy technology and also Almost like social compact in really interesting sort of financial technology that were coming together so idea like behavior economics and behavioral finance. That were coming together. I got involved with it and the reason why I care about it and I think a lot of folks should care about. It is because it's really a movement about industry for all these centralists technology Bloomberg movement around putting the power back in people's hands. That's why I started building company Working in ecosystem that's why started investing in Myspace Founders that were building companies in the space out. I think at its core. That's what we really really care about as a company as what we should care about as as an ecosystem In the in the blockchain spaces blessings allow these public ledgers at the start of the letters that allow people to have like a source of truth verifiable and it puts the sort of control and power back in the people's hands and not have to trust giant corporations which in a Lotta a lot of ways have Put us in a few different positions where we shouldn't trust them even all the way back to like the original creation of Bitcoin in the original bitcoin. White Paper referencing saying the you know the financial crisis of mortgage meltdown and all that stuff yet. Whatever the housing crisis that's awesome and you know I like my question is there's Bitcoin and there's these crypto currencies but there's also these other decentralized platforms that you're you know you're very involved with building So what what's the point of having all these different block decentralized blockchain's and kind of what's paint us a picture of the future that you envision with all these different for platforms totally So another another really great question. I guess like this the best way to to sort of think about this. This is that Any really good. Modern Technology is actually built up of a lot of different technologies together that we as users. I don't necessarily know or need to know one of the examples. I like to use his like we all use email or g. mail and really like we kind of take it for granted. Granted we use like an email client on our iphone or android phone or or on the web of works..

Well, this person would be amazing as as a grill girl. So then the time gums, call him up the grill girls have always been engaged in questions of race in addition to questions of gender. Yes. From the very beginning, how has the representation of people of color in the group to what extent has it reflected America or the art world or the world in general? Yeah. We don't really talk. I, I know it's, it's hard to to be anonymous and not talk about that. But we've had have and have always had south-asian African American European descent, people letting ex and the group has varied over time. We've never think about percentages in, in society, we just wanna have as great a group with as much representation as possible, and it's been it's been fifty percent. It's fifty percent women of color in recent years. You mentioned earlier that the group included diversity of. Of gender identity. Have there been people who don't identify as women, or people who are trans women in the group, not always, but pretty close to the beginning and? Little, you know later. Yeah. So one of my kids is transgender as a transgender girl, and I have encountered in unfortunate ways people who identify themselves as feminists who believe that feminists spaces should be only for people who were identified female as at birth basically gendered, women. I don't know if they have a position on trans men, who their parents thought were girls when they were born I had that doesn't usually come up, and I wonder if that's something that you as a group have ever had to deal with. Well, we would, yes, first of all, we do not believe that in any way. We believe we are a, a women's group, still we started out that way, and we still are, but it is anyone who identifies as a woman. That's, that's what it is toss. I'm Jesse thorn. You're listening to bullseye. I'm talking with Carta Cova. It's a founding member of the anonymous political art collective the guerrilla girls. These are things that you tend to address saying you collectively in, like every interview, but I think they are. There's a reason that they are addressed in every interview you said, you pick the name guerrilla girls at the first meeting. There must have been if not then than at least since discussion of the question of whether using girls rather than women, presumably, because it sounded cool or fun was infanta Leising or something like that. It was that the case is if you ever like it was the opposite. The whole idea was to use girls and we had to convince some of the people, the people for it had to convince some of the people to go with it. We wanted to tell graph that we were different not there's no usual feminist group. But, you know, we wanted to be not run of the mill people imagined. That not what people expected so girls was important. Part of that, and that was before girl power. Our and all that kind of stuff we wanted to use that we wanted to take on that world that word that grown women were called, you know, but until they were dead, okay girls. Let's do this. Let's do that. We wanted to take that on and, and own it, and the whole girl power thing later. You know riot girls. I'm everything it did change the idea of using not do to us. But we, we felt that in nineteen eighty-five the way people felt it in the nineties, the way people feel it now. Do you feel like? The world is different in some way now than it was thirty years ago, there's like a relatively famous work that you did. I guess I guess it must have been maybe ten years ago.

If you go to an art contemporary encyclopedic, local, whatever odds are most of the art showing there was made by white men, even if you leave out the renaissance painters and Dutch masters or whatever still it remains in two thousand nineteen uncommon to see a solo show a woman, or a person of color that was even more true. In one thousand nine hundred eighty five when some of New York's most prominent galleries showed less than ten percent. Women artists. Others were showing no women at all enter the guerrilla girls, that's gorilla with a U N E, by the way, they're an anonymous collective of artists, and pretty much all of them were living in New York at the time they decided the best way to fight discrimination in the art world was to make art about the discrimination paste it onto the walls all over lower Manhattan put on a gorilla mask and shout it out. Loud, with a Bullhorn in front of the museum of modern art. The reactions from galleries and curator's were a mix of anger and annoyance, but things changed slowly. The guerrilla girls have entered their third decade as a collective Morphing in membership as time has passed. They still make art for the streets. They have also shown in galleries and museums. And I got to talk with one of their founding members Katakuro. It's that's not her real name. Of course, they are anonymous, but we'll get into that. Let's hear the conversation. Catechal. What's of the guerrilla girls? Welcome to bulls. I am so happy to have you on the show. Thanks, jesse. Really great to be here. So each of the guerrilla girls, I guess, with the exception of one in the course of their I don't know, guerrilla girl, initiation chooses, the name of an artist who was a woman who has under recognized in part for that reason, can you tell me about the artist whose name buf- taken. Yes, I'm cut to Kollwitz was a German artist ferry political didn't believe in selling things for you, Jim ounce of money. So she would always make cheap prints that she could give away and sell for a little bit. She did work about workers about women some stuff about sex, all kinds of things. And she live from the mid nineteenth century, to the mid twentieth, century, and was she someone whose name you pulled out of a hat of where the cat. Candidates or someone you pick, specifically, it actually was a great thing in the beginning because people were discovering artists, they'd never heard of and taking their names. You know, it was a time when a lot of people were searching out these artists from history. So it was really exciting for people to choose their pseudonyms and today, it still is I mean, when new people come in the group, which happens all the time they have to choose, and it's a great process for them for me. I connect to cut a Kollwitz because, you know, I'm also political artists, and I believe in a lot of what she believed in. So she was an artist and an activist her whole life. And that's true for me to present at the dawn of the guerrilla girl. Oh yeah, I'm one of the founders of the girl girls, and I've been involved with just about everything we've done, deeply involved over the last thirty four years was there like a day where you are. At a all night, diner, or something. Is it? Somebody said wouldn't it be great? If we all dot dot dot kinda kinda I mean, what actually happened was the art world in New York City was fairly small at that time. And there were almost no opportunities for women are. So caller the gallery showed like one two, three, museums the same thing, and we were a bunch of artists who felt this, you know, women artists in New York felt this very strongly. So what happened was the museum of modern art in nineteen Eighty-four had an exhibition called an international survey of painting and sculpture..

"Were twenty seven people killed inside of a Christian church. It's awful it's terrible likely in the future the notch. The crazies will look upon that and say that's ri- belong in a synagogue going to church in a mosque. God knows what's going to happen next. So the argument has been should those in church arm themselves or God, look after you. Joining me now is the right Reverend Bishop council Ned the second of which means he's a doctrine is a founding member of project twenty one also a Pennsylvania state constable and the Reverend council Ned, welcome again to the Bill Cunningham show, and Reverend how are you? I'm doing well. How about yourself tell you. It's great day to be an American. I'm reading the story about why? I choose to pack a pistol inside Mon church, and please explain Reverend please explain well, you know, these are difficult times we're living in these days. And there are lots of people in America across this country who are planning to do evil, and they're planning to do evil on people of faith and people that they view a soft target, and my church in Pennsylvania is going to be one of them. And according to this story to tell tell us what happened when you I guess priests and rabbis and reverends when you're conducting your services there at Saint Albans, Anglican Anglican church that you're kind of looking around you notice somebody in the back of of the church explained. Yes. So it was right after the the synagogue shooting, but I'd also had an individual who had threaten me. I'd arrested him a couple of months prior to that. And then he threatened me over Facebook. And so you know, I was on sort of a slightly state of higher alert. And I was giving the sermon and someone walked in the back, and they're making a lot of noise. And I couldn't see who it was. And it turned out to be okay. But you know, it really got me thinking about everything, and you know, as a pastor the pastor has obligation to be an overseer of his spot, and you know, in previous times bishops did that with their Crozier, which is the stick that the Bishop guy sheep man to protect from the wolves. But you know, the threats were facing today. I think you know, the obligation is still saying the threat seemed to be coming at a more rapid pace. So, you know, there used to be a time where people honored sacred space. There's just certain lines. You don't cross and that doesn't seem exists anymore. With a lot of people. There are lots of unchurched people who've just have literally never been told better, and sort of open themselves up to whatever sort of evil festering inside of them. And you know, as I said before, you know, my church is going to be a soft target for so many what's to come in and wreak havoc. So you're saying during the service on your vestments. You have a nine millimeter Glock. Now, I have a a Smith and Wesson forty. So why you're preaching the word of God archbishop? You're packing heat. Yes. I am. Well, does the flock to the person? There's no about this. Yes. Have you told her just as it's known in the community? I think it's just I think it's just known. I think it's just known and there's a number of individuals in our pair who I know carry weapons and used to be a higher percentage. But. Yeah arch. Saint Albans Anglican church is not a soft target. Now. As far as relying upon the Lord, I I thought about I have a concealed carry permit. And I carry my weapon occasionally, not all the time. I in the back of my mind after the synagogue shootings couple of weeks ago while going to mass I'm a practicing, Roman Catholic. I thought about taking my weapon in church, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Because I thought the Lord will protect me, and I'm sure those in the synagogue of the tree of life in Pittsburgh thought the Lord was going to protect them to or the church in in Texas that had twenty six people killed. It was awful and sixty minutes a week or two ago did a segment on that. It was just awful. And the point they were making is that AR fifteen is somehow worse than then o'clock or Smith and Wesson, somehow, it's it's okay to get shot by thirty eight. But not goodbye near fifty whatever they were trying to say, I don't know. But how would you how would you rack to those archbishop? It would say, you know, what? The Lord will protect us. You don't have to take your weapon and God's house. I'm certainly not compelling people to bring their weapons to church, but as the pastor of that flock, I have an obligation to protect them and to provide for their safety, you know, most of the large megachurches and across the country. They have armed security. They have off duty officers the metal detectors armed security guard. I Don security guards, you know, a litany of security measures and layers of security, which is completely pro cost prohibitive for probably ninety five percent of churches across this country. So what are we to do just be left to the whims of anybody who wants to come in and do harm? No. But you know, as the Astros of this particular congregation, I've made the decision that I'm going to do everything I can to keep my people safe. And like I said, I'm not compelling anybody to carry a weapon, but I know what I'm gonna do to protect the people that come into the doors that are committed to my charge. So the archbishop net at Saint Albans, Anglican church, and what city are you in in Pennsylvania? What is it? State college, Pennsylvania. The university. And so if somebody comes in wishing you harm, you would have no problem in church pulling out your Smith and Wesson and shooting them right in the head. I'm going to do what I need to do to protect my flock. No question. And and you'd have no trouble. Shedding blood inside inside God's plan. God's house of worship you would do it. Well, you put it that way. It sounds a little stark. But no, I'm not going to let anybody hurt anybody in my church, at least that's my plan. The president got a lot of trouble because see suggested that churches and synagogues mosques needed some armed guards in Cincinnati. We have a large evangelical church, you're called crossroads. I have on. Brian Thome was one of the founders across roads, they have something a range of forty thousand people a Sunday who come to their church, and they have arm Cincinnati police everywhere, and they're there to direct traffic due in a sense. They're directing traffic, but in reality after they get done directing traffic. They they go inside the church and the hang around the outside and that that's what's happening. And that's a rich powerful church. But you're saying many churches don't have the ability to pay. Say fifty bucks an hour to an off duty cop in uniform to come with a gun. No, exactly. I mean, it's cost prohibitive for a lot of places. And so then what are you left to do? That's the question. Well, would you encourage other ministers and priests and rabbis to arm themselves during service, why didn't courage any congregation and do what they have to do many pastor to do whatever they have to do to protect their flocks whether they decided to be armed. That's a personal decision that they need to make between, you know. That's a personal decision. They need to make you know through prayer in consultation with whomever else in their hierarchy. But you know, the decisions made as far as I'm concerned, at least for my small remnant of his flock. Well, you carry many hats, you're an archbishop there at the rector of Saint Albans, you're also Pennsylvania state constable. You're also one of the founding members of project twenty one black conservative leadership. I noticed this story out of Britain. It didn't get much play in America. Because it's politically incorrect to talk about it. But the headline in Britain is Lou American Louis Farrakhan leads chance of death to America in Tehran, Iran and Louis Farrakhan refers to America is the great Satan Democratic Party favorite nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, traveled to Iran this past week for meetings with regime leaders, this story goes on to say all the things he did. He also spoke at the university of Tehran about what a horrible disgusting. America is he chanted death to America during a large anti-american demonstration after all those new sanctions were imposed and he also claimed at the university, quote, America's never been a democracy, and according to Iran semi official news agency, mayor Farrakhan said at a meeting with secretary of Iran's Expediency Council Mohannad that America's conspiring against Iran to kill the Iranian people. Now, Louis Farrakhan ran around with Barack Hussein Obama in Chicago for a long time, he regularly appears with members of the black congressional caucus. And in fact, he was on stage a month or two ago with the wreath of Franklin's funeral. He stood next to President Obama, President Clinton Jesse Jackson, and others and Louis Farrakhan is chanting death to America. So I'm asking you this. If associations of our great leaders are always covered one at someone like President Trump. What is your feeling from fridge project Twenty-one black conserve leadership? One. Our news media doesn't cover what Louis Farrakhan is saying on foreign territory, Iran, he wants to kill Americans. He shouts death to America. How do you react to that? Well, I mean ever since I was a little kid. I think it was the fourth grade fourth or fifth grade when Shah was overthrown, you know, we we've always had a contentious relationship with Iran ever since that time they've they've not been our friend for a very long time. And for you know, minister Farrakhan to go over there and make those sorts of you know, what are quite frankly, seditious statement. One that's wrong. But to no one told him accountable. For his actions. But you know, again, the fact that he's going to Iran of all places again, especially now when tensions are heightened between the US, Andy, Ron and our relationship and the relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. He he he's basically spending time visiting our enemy than saying horrible things about us. That's never okay. And you know, the media's not gonna cover it. I'm not surprised that media is not covering. No, not surprised in the least. But also, I think maybe that also speaks to the fact that you know, you know, he's an old band at this point. Maybe just so marginalized that you know, his words don't have the impact that they used to regardless. You know, he should not be going. Another other countries talking about America. He does this on a regular basis. You also made reference to the fact that America's the great Satan. And then it's hooked up with Saudi Arabia to hurt the Iranian people, you know, between Sunnis and between the Shias in Islamic coral. This is large Gulf and the Saudi Arabians are the Sunnis in the she is or Iran and one thing about Iran, they directly and indirectly killed thousands of American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, especially in Iraq with their what their soldiers right now as we speak in Syria. There's battles going on between the Syrian government and the Iranians on one side against against the Kurds in the Americans on the other side. And that indirectly we are like fighting the Iranian people. But the fact that the Iranian leadership has financed the killing of thousands of American soldiers in Iraq. Then you have a leader very close to democratic leadership Louis Farrakhan going to Iran to talk about that to America and kill the Americans. It's despicable as seditious. Is is being a traitor, and he's gonna come back to this country. And I'm sure at the end of this year or next year is gonna make other appearances with leadership of the Democratic Party, including one Keith Ellison congressman in Minnesota who. Who's a friend of his and they run around together. And I could not imagine the news media allowing some big time Republican to run around with those with the different political viewpoints and not to be held accountable. It looks to me as if Louis Farrakhan is evil when it comes to the defense of this great country and what he's doing in Iran. What he did this past week what he's gonna do the rest of this year is the antithesis of what project Twenty-one black leadership stands for which is individual liberty and things of that character. But but the.

That another p mail is taking Jade spot because we need more females in leadership roles in gamed of so that's great. That's good news. This having Jade leave is kind of a head scratcher because she was overseeing I believe. The Star Wars project that massive was working on. Right. I don't know if she was the internet. I'm pretty sure she was motives Montreal sturdily currently has an open world game in the works. Maybe I'm confusing her with I was like that doesn't sound right, then maybe confusing her with the thing that Amy was working on Amy was the one who is working on the Star Wars game. The cook can't no the visceral. Yeah. Here we go. The project would not have a title or release Wenda was pitched by three developers. Raises super-secret? So Raymond founded e motive in two thousand fifteen after departing Ubisoft with initial goal focusing on new IP in close collaboration with bio air. It's projects however was to work with this real and Amy headings cancelled Starsky. See, maybe that's yeah. See I thought that that's what she was working on. Yeah. But it's crazy. She hasn't issued a statement yet. But guess what they cancelled that project. Maybe she also was working on something else would which would make sense. But they just as history for people who maybe aren't familiar with Jade, Raymond is. And why she's important while we're talking about her? She was of course, the founding member of Ubisoft Toronto she left the company in two thousand fourteen after ten years there. Choose a producer on the original assassin's cream in later, an executive producer for assassin's creed to along with Tom Clancy's, splinter cell, blacklist and watchdogs. And it's been a long time that we got a splinter. So that was one of the rumor things we thought you'd be self was going to talk about it. He three this year, and then they didn't fun game. Yeah. I mean, we're definitely do for some splinter cell. So then she left Ubisoft to and founded as motive Montreal and lead development on the campaign for Star Wars battlefront two that's what I'm thinking of. I heard this past ally that motives. Israel, certainly currently has an open world game in the works. So. She worked on Star Wars. She's was working in an open world game. What she's doing? Now, we don't know TVD. It would be really interesting to see generally, you don't see studio leaders leave in the middle of a project unless the project may be isn't going. Well, do you think that that's what's happening? Try get on this bad way. If there's avenue Jason's. Yes. Israel woke typically, if it's an amicable leave they'll put out a statement saying I'm excited to move forward and move on do projects Android time here, blah, blah, blah. And I'm excited little, but she hasn't issued anything at least as right now, which is Thursday, the twenty fifth of October two day earlier this week earlier this thing we checked her. We checked or socials does she have leads? Well, I mean, I've never actually followed her any of these things. So I don't actually know I'm going to Google Jade, Raymond statement rate now. Oh, heck, I'm gonna all I got nothing. No statement. No. So, you know, they didn't even like put a thing in there from her which usually might do. Yeah. Amy didn't make a statement when she left either we all knew that. Probably was not amicable didn't seem to great now. So if we're going off that this would also doesn't seem super great. Yeah. That's our basis. So now, why was their reason she decided to insert said no says? With this change. She is decided to leave EA what change. That's I'm reading the statement again, easy is bringing more creative games. Okay. So this is focused on bringing more creative new games and content to players and talks about how Laura and her team have taken several steps internally to better support our game makers in his pursuits such as expanding Smith Ryan's per folio police additional studios including motive, and then they talk about some mantha cheaply, experienced gamemaker.
