"Grab welcome to the show. Thank you for having me your the co founder of a four capital which is an early stage investment company. What was the thesis when you started a four. Yeah so both. My co-founder automates banerjee have been investing in venture now for almost nine years. And we were both. I was at a fund Fund and one of the things we've noticed in the kind of four years these funds. Is that the goal posts for early. Stage founders shifting. So if you were trying to raise your first million to a million dollars pre product market fit. When you have little dune attraction. It was getting harder and harder to raise capital not from angels and scouts through definitely been obvious explosion of that which is great for the ecosystem but none of those investors usually lead the route. So if you were to go to a seed fund Fund for them to lead around price terms so on and so forth they were very often telling founders. Like i like what you're doing. I like your background but you're too early for us. Go get some traction go. Bill the A little bit more than we can invest so we saw this firsthand and we said allow there is a problem. There's a gap there because a personally just from our passion. It's like we love getting involved very early. In love helping founders. But we think there's a problem here to be solved so typical founders. When you see a problem and nobody solving it the best way to solve it is to go. Go after yourself. So my partner adamantly denied we left our previous funds and middle twenty sixteen we raise our first fund in the fall and the rest is history if you go back before that you were an early product manager for android. What was it like being google in the early days of android is a lot of fun like looking back. Obviously come a long way when i joined android in two thousand nine. It was like a skunkworks kind of projects on the side. I mean look at google building massive business right in an online ads in the early two thousands but it was pretty clear by. Oh seven ole that mobile was going to be the future not desktop so from google. It mobile was a potential existential threat. Right if apple was the dominant you know or the way that most people accessed mobile if that was apple or the carriers right if reisen etc like the own the customer relationship. That will be very problematic for google right. Because the reason google's been able to really flourishes. There is no sort of toll booth if you may for the internet and anybody can spend up a website and you can start to make money directly with consumers but mobile was potentially to be a different dynamic so when i joined android it doesn't nine. We essentially had a blank cheque right from the management at a google. Say look this is potentially going to be existential for the business. We need a horse in the race. Right we need to have something where we can compete with apple and have a dominant position or or at least one of tour to three key players so that was intended to mandate orchid blackberry. Back in the days so at started a company in mobile as well as building software for smartphone platforms. So i'd seen the movie before and really put frankly one foot in front of the other was a leap year for the next product line. That was our way to really put enjoyed map. Because when i joined had already launched a couple of phones but always considered december the fourth operating system after blackberry in iowa s maybe windows mobile as geeky operating system. Open source right. It's like on the fridge and we would really trying to show demonstrated the world that android has come a long way and it is a very formidable competitor to less so the next one was something google we paid for. That product developed by. Hec in that case. We work closely with the carriers to bring that product market which tried to sell the phone online ourselves. That did not work because we realized people still like to buy the phone in person. After the two years that i was there android went from when i joined less than a million total users. To by the time he left we were getting about a million new users day in that kind of scale for small. You only see a few places and in hindsight it's twenty twenty Bunch of things. We did right in the moment it was. We were just running around with their heads. Cut off and trying to figure out how to compete in a very fast growing world

Glenn Jackson on Optical Communications
"Today. Sending a map of mars to earth might take nine years with current radio systems but as little as nine weeks with laser. Communications here's glen. Jackson payload manager for the laser communications relay demo had nasr's goddard space flight center to explain why optical communication systems are more efficient. The wavelength of light is much smaller than the wavelength of radio frequencies and the small the wavelengths the more information you can condense in a small period of time so we get greater bandwidth with optical communication as the wavelength get smaller. This technology would allow us to move. Large amounts of data and high definition video in shorter amounts of time we could communicate with rovers or astronauts on mars. Actually seeing and hearing more of their adventures on the red planet and laser communication systems on earth could provide high bandwidth in remote areas bridging the digital divide and bringing high speed communications to the world for innovation.

"Today's storyteller was a playwright and activist. Who stories centered. African american working class families despite tragically short career. She became the first black woman to have a play produced on broadway half a century later her work remains one of the most celebrated snapshots of black struggles and black joy. Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago. She started writing for paul robeson freedom a progressive newspaper at a protest against racial discrimination at new york university lorraine met robert number off a jewish writer. They married at her family home in chicago. In nineteen fifty three in nineteen. Six robert co wrote the hit song. Cindy oh cindy it's prophets allowed lorraine to stop working to focus on writing. She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun. This too was from a langston hughes poem called harlem. What happens to a dream deferred. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun or faster like a sore and then run a raisin in the sun centers on a black working class family in chicago south side as they try to improve their financial situation. The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old. The play was an almost instant. Hit the new york drama critics circle named it. The best play of the year just five months after its broadway debut arisen in the son of in london's west end in nineteen sixty one. A film starring much of the original cast was released and several of the actors received golden globe. Nominations perhaps the most important element of the play success was that entailing box stories. Lorraine also make theater accessible and previously unimaginable ways as the writer. James baldwin noted. I had never in my life seen so many black people in the theater and the reason was that never before in the entire history of the american theatre had so much of the truth of black people's lives and seen on the stage. Black people had ignored the theatre because the theatre had always ignored them lorraine would go on to finish in stage. Just one other. Play the sign in sidney bruce. Deans window about a jewish intellectual the play which explored themes of homosexuality and the bohemian lifestyle. Debuted to mixed reviews in nineteen sixty four. It ran for just over one hundred performances closing on january twelfth. Nineteen sixty five. That's same day. Lorraine hanbury died of pancreatic cancer. She was thirty four years old. After lorraine's death. Her ex husband robert had several of her plays produced posthumously to be young gifted and black became an autobiographical work. Drawing on lorraine's letters interviews and journal entries the title came from a nineteen sixty four speech of lorraine's when she spoke to the winners of a united negro fund writing competition.

You'd think it might be challenging for her devotees to continue putting their faith in her but continuing to hold beliefs after a failed. Prediction is actually quite common. According to psychiatrist. Neil liser if a cult member had strong beliefs and sacrificed a lot continuing to believe might be less painful than discarding everything. They've stood for. He wrote the occurrence of a prophetic disprove. Rationalization must follow in order to assuage anxiety created by this this confirmation wiser even specifically wrote the this rationalization may take the form of an admission of the miscalculation of the predicted date. He said for truly committed believers prophecies cannot and do not fail even though pana wave postponed the end of the world by a week the authorities continued to keep a close watch on them.

The police and press marveled as chino's flock bother to do laundry and dane duties as the apocalypse approached. But they watched closely to see if there are any signs of a sinister plan. Most of the other bystanders were there for entertainment but some wondered what if chino was right. The old reclusive woman seemed so sure and her conviction spoke volumes the days slowly past and then may twenty second finally arrived but just as before nothing extraordinary happened. Chino's followers were disappointed but most never lost faith in their leader. The authorities hung around for a few more days but when they realized the group wasn't dangerous they lost interest and broke down their barricade.

This is something that kind of gives you a little bit of a rhythm where you feel like you can catch your breath and say, Okay, I actually have the space and the time to continue to be an artist on a daily basis is an enormous luxury.

Habilitat Creating Community with Jeff Nash
"Hello everyone welcome to the addicted. Mind podcast today. My guest is jeff. Nash and he is going to talk about habilitated and their model for sustained recovery. Jeff thank you so much for coming. Onto the addicted mind podcast. I am really interested to hear your story but also to hear your model of addiction treatment. Thank you thanks for means a pleasure to be here this morning. All right so tell us a little bit. Where does it all start for you. Oh wow that's a long story like a lot of people. I ended up getting involved with drugs alcohol at a very young age twelve years low and it got really bad really fast. By the time. I was sixteen years old. I was shooting heroin and other substances saw and renew sleep and of course that brought a lot of legal problems and now jail lots of treatment and i was raised in texas dallas texas and i went through fourteen different treatment programs throughout my life and continued really struggle in and out of jail in and out of programs so the age of thirty actually twenty nine years old is when i finally got it together and for me rui. I realized later that i needed. I needed more than just. The normal substance use treatment. I needed a life. Overall are some point hind landed in. Hawaii ended up in trouble ear in jail and eventually ended up in the village. And i kind of took to habilitates philosophy like a duck. They helped me find a passion. Nail figure out who i was and on the final i had a knack for helping other people. They put me through a lot of training. They sent me to school to learn about a substance use treatment and administration and things like that and eventually i became the program. Director for tat. And i did that job for about sixteen years. I was very blessed. I was trained but actually the last person that was trained by the people who founded the program unfortunately our founder any marino us. Since passed away. But i was very blessed to be trained by heaven his wife and then i did the program director of the program for about sixty years and the ultimate two thousand fifteen. I became the executive director. So i've been with a village out now for about twenty four years. I think and different abilities very much. Enjoy what we do and this is so you know. I found my niche. I guess and got a nice life. Now been clean and sober for about twenty four years. That's awesome that's career. Comedy story pretty similar to people's stories right. Tell me a little bit about the fourteen times of trying treatment so here you were addicted pretty early. I guess you know. I think he said thirteen or fourteen years old drugs. By the time. I was sixteen hours using obviously right so using some really hardcore drugs at a very young age very young age of development and you into fourteen different treatment centers. I mean. that's really like someone who is trying to get help ya. Well i think to me jimmy rule honest. I think my family wanted me to get a lot more than i really. Did you know. I had a lot of people i mean i have some childhood traumas that were unresolved goes very angry. Disenfranchised with life you know the family was dysfunctional. Common themes wait was substance abuse on trying and trying really. It was when i got to be a little bit older and how to jail and withdraw in jail and watching life pass me by and to get a little bit more motivated like i need to give together. This is not fine. I was actually of a lengthy prison sentence that i was facing drums now for for drug for drug possession. That's what prompted me to trying. Really dig down deep and try and overcome all these issues until you know certainly wasn't fixed a thirty day curated took me a few years therapy Few years of mentorship but there was a it. Sounds like there was a change in you where you said. Okay i gotta dig deeper here. Something's gotta be different. I can't keep going like this really crazy to say i was on about ninety milligrams of methadone back in the nineties. And i i went to jail overstated. They didn't give me the doses. Methadone so i ended up withdrawing older. Eat from both methadone in heroin on the floor. Wow jail and it was a newsroom experience. I mean it a really miserable experience you know. It was in that fog than i decided. you know. this isn't fun anymore. And you know i mean most of the reason that i was using drugs to escape age of of that i created for myself really but it was a coping skill. Drug use was a coping skill. Not not a very resourceful coping skill but it was yulong and you know the payable. That really made me decide that. I needed to try something else. I was very blessed. Because i i was in jail here in hawaii. And there's a program here old milita which is known as the long hard core long-term aren't or program and the you know. The word on the street was that if you really wanna get your act together. That's the place that you go. And i didn't have anything to lose. That's for sure. So i reached out to them in jail and call them. They came to visit me in jail in a few weeks later. They got me into the program so they are able to to take you in and you really wanted to to get some treatment. It sounds like you were kind of ready at that point. Yeah find the right place in the right place mentally and emotionally that i knew something had to change about jails institutions and death while i was facing all that and it became very apparent to me that the gig was up and it was time to make a change are the only alternative was either gonna die or overdose. Several times nearly died but is facing lindsay incarceration because of by drug use.

"Linked with life. That's Yanni one. Just chemical signatures of things that will want to live. We can also look a physical texture. Quite familiar with. Hanes and downstream motto is. And all of that sort of stuff we wouldn't expect to find any fossil of animals on my eyes, but we might expect to find a fuss. Lights dramatic, which destruction of layers of bacteria and dramatic on US preserve sent stuff. Two and a half billion years of evolution on us, and so when MAS was once woman wet at the same time that was willing to wet. We recognize a lot of folks from that point in time, so we would maybe expect to find that on Mars. And also we can look for things like minerals which are associated with psychology, some types of minerals. Formed on us if that related to types of life that we also look for those things. Of, course one of the problems with those last two was demonstrated in the Rose Garden of the White House. If you years ago, quite a few years ago, now I guess that's the Allan Hills meteorite eight, four, four, zero, one. I've seen those crystal structures that they found for people who aren't aware of the US president. The Time Bill Clinton had a press conference during that press conference. He talked about the possibility that life evidence of life. Life may have been discovered on Mars in the form of crystallized structures which were found inside a meteorite now this meteorite was actually found at Arctic replace Code. Allan Hills and it had little individual rectangle lock oblong likes crystal structures, which looked like it could have been. Bacteria were too small, but they really did look like they were bacteria that debate continued for a while as to whether it was possible that these crystal structures were they simply. And Minerals Oh were they fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Yeah, that's right and because as a result of that today surrounding Allan Hills. The research into what equals the buyers signature I guess has really being refined and as being instances of very old ancient life on us. which has been debated and say whether they were left. One's not and based on this many scientists and astrobiologist at NASA have started to produce guidelines for life detection recently in two thousand eighteen, that was a paper that looks at the latter of life infection, and it basically ranked the different types of things that you could find in tons of whether that could be excluded as something that looks. Looks like last season or whether that was something that was likely to be life, and you really WanNa. Find more than one line of evidence. It really needs to be multiple lines of evidence that indicate life that we on falling. Today's full, because you will be specific types of rocks to what you. That would not have been hated too much. Yeah, that's right so because of tectonic plates on. rox tend to get pushed together and you get heated up and they get pressurized and this little change. A sedimentary rock to metamorphised broke. It stops the minimal FIS away from becoming sedimentary, and when this happens, organic compounds inside the stock get destroyed, they crack and break down into smaller components until they become something that you can't use diagnose last because the fragments does not recognizable anymore, and so this is something that was quite key. We found that from using the techniques that could tell which of the rocks were the best preserved of the rooks that we will looking on, and so we could then tell which. which would be most likely to still hold the chemical signs of life without being destroyed? Is that something you need to worry about on MAS is as far as we know. There's no plate tectonics on us. I guess the any way you're gonNA. Get metamorphosed rocks is from media impacts. Things like that EJECTA. Yes, NASA has previously detected organic compounds on MAS, and it's being quite confusing because they've compounds could be actually generated by meteorite impacts, because certain types of organic compounds which aromatic compounds generated from heat and so detection of chloride benzene has been to cut because of a meteorite impact, and so although on Mas. Worry too much about plate. tectonics is added issue of radiation, because there's no atmosphere to protect from radiation and say these compounds can be destroyed by radiation as well and radiation. Reactive source is one of the big issues with the Viking line. This will when carried a number of experiments, looking for signs of present life and. And it turns out. A lot of the experiment didn't account for the unique environmental conditions on my is such as reactive, so yeah, that's right. The environmental conditions on Mars so different than the ones that we look look out on us, and said that sort of hard to predict tool when we looking at luckily now with decades of Ma's research, and it's a really good understanding of what environment of Mas.

How many of these because apparently the ballots got a little damp because of the rain, and so they were getting stuck inside the machine and that was what the problem was every year. It's something though, every time there's an election. It's funny in this day and age when we are so high tech that you have to worry about ballot paper ballots getting stuck in the machine or there. No paper ballots where I voted. It's just you push the button high tech. This is an old. It's an old voting machine. It's not a computerized. It's just little buttons. Machine. Right. That's what I'm saying. They could have something like that. They don't they're not gonna show you what I my place. I took this piece of paper. And I put an X Ray dare I took a pan and put axe right there. But acts right there, and then I had to shove it into a machine. Yeah. Yeah. That's how I did mine. I know someone who worked the polls in Brooklyn at eight machines within the first hour they were down to two. But every every time there's an election. They say we're going to address this money in every time and every time you turn around. It's all screwed up. Yeah. I think they should bring back the boots the little curtain, and you press the level. I mean, I don't know what was wrong with that system. And it was great because it was private and it was. That's what we have over. Yeah. Still other different places different way. Everybody's different. But it is. It is a really expensive upgrade for something. That only happens every, you know, or I know it's it's one of the things that make this country. Great is factor. We can have these elections, and they ought to be able to get that. Correct. So if there's a proposition on your next thing that allows you to vote for electric machines. Would you say, yes, I'll pay for that. There's more ridiculous things that were. There's some places out in Oregon where you can do male only you don't.

"Right. So we're in this. We're in this nine year bull market. And what's happened is first of all it's great to see the market doing what it's doing. But it has kind of a bad side. And what what? The bull market has done is that it has encouraged some Americans to claim social security early and turn around and just invest the money. I tell you this could be a huge mistake because if you claim benefits before your full retirement age it would reduce what you're going to be receiving. And that means you're walking away from of guaranteed increase over a couple of years because that's what happens when you wait to claim benefits. And here's the kicker if you work while you claimed benefits before your full retirement age social security would actually reduce your benefits, even more. And I don't know about you. But I would never want the essay to to take money away from me simply because I'm still working, and I tell you Americans are taking risks that they don't fully understand. This worries all of us at Financial Engines. And that's why for a limited time here as part of this offer for this free portfolio review. View. We will also run a social security analysis to personalize your claiming strategy, please get over to investingsense dot com. Learn more get started. So that you can get this information when the topic of social security is discussed there's usually a lingering question about its solvency. How long is it going to be around? And Andy, you've got a very unique way to think about this. I don't think things are as good or as bad as either group wants you to think just look at the facts. All right social security trust fund, they've been taking in more money than they've been paying out since one thousand nine hundred four now the forecast is this net surplus could end sometime around twenty twenty. And that's when more baby boomers will start claiming benefits. But please do not freak out that this is, you know, just a couple of years away in it's because the social security administration says that interest income alone from.

Right. And also just as one of the few girls on the team being like scoring the most goals, like did that make you feel like you had overcome something and like, ah, get that? Did that experience give you more confidence despite the fact that did being treated badly lead to grow life is what say life is complicated, and even if you think it was like a bad situation they are put in that you would necessarily want other people to be put in.

Let me defaced my jersey and not being people who would ever go to a feminist protest or anything. We're very supportive of me. That was an experience that I don't think a lot of children get to have to save. Like this thing feels wrong to me. I'm going to try to do something about it, or at least refused to be refused to wear jersey that you know says something on it. That doesn't represent me. I definitely came out of that experience, feeling stronger. I don't even remember much of what it was like to play with the boys on the team. Other than that, you know, I kicked all their asses. But like I was telling stuff and earlier I, you know, didn't really go onto play sports into high school. I became much more interested in dance and musical theatre which are far more kind to women and where I was surrounded by more women. I don't necessarily think playing on this. Coed team turned me off from interacting with boys, but I also don't think it necessarily set me on a trajectory where you know, I felt great about my capacity in sports. I just don't think it's as much fun for girls. I mean, I think for some girls who are again, super competitive and sue breath, letting co Ed sports at a young age are are fine. It helps the can help develop skills. In my experience, the boys teams are more aggressive and faster and more determined to play more..
