How Beauty Insider Tina Hedges Created LOLI, an Environmentally Sound Brand

"Career has taken her. From the perfume counter at macy's inside a conic brands like Christian Dior Estee Lauder Al. but after almost two decades beauty shetty personal crisis that inspired her to start lally beauty the I zero waste organic food grade approach beauty we talk about her a Pitney the one thing she asks every investor she meets with and why she is so committed to getting this, right. Teen almost two decades in the beauty industry and then you had both a health scare and day crisis of conscience. What happened I had spent about almost about to get decades or so traveling the world in pretty high powered marketing roles and innovation roles for big companies in the industry pretty much helping, decide and create all the products in women's beauty cabinets and. started. Simultaneously, I had this weird across section of I started having all these other immune issues and systemic allergies. A No physician could sort of pinpoint what was really triggering it as well as went through early menopause. And I was in my mid thirties and no underlying health conditions for that and I started to think about. All of the products have been applying to my body from head to toe for almost two decades and I started thinking about all those buildup of toxins and chemicals, and I realized that I had been polluting my own body and simultaneously. I had this consciousness of wow. Not only have I been pushing into the world products filled with all these chemicals and nasty since and and carcinogens endocrine disrupters all of this you know really scary stuff but on top of that were blending all of that in eighty to ninety five percent water because most of your skin hair and body products are literally water you're paying for water. And then wrapping all that in single use plastic and when the world is running out of water, it's one of our most precious resources when the boy to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by twenty, twenty five. None of this makes any sense to me or None of that made any sense to me a when I had this convergence of the crisis of health and crisis consciousness. Once you had that a home moment what was the first thing you did to sort of take that idea and start? Making it an actual reality. So I had already left the corporate world and I had gone into the start world. I launched a very successful. vegan sulfate free hair brand. Actually I was the first to use reality TV show on Bravo a show called blow out about a hairstylist in La and his hair salon. But because of us sort of uniquely understood, it was basically an hour long infomercial. We turned the industry on dime because prior to that I mean it was super early days of reality to be. We're talking like two, thousand, four it was America's biggest loser where for the straight guy blow out and the apprentice those were the reality shows that were on at that time and I realized wait a second. This is a show about a hairstylist. Want we show him developing his own brand? and. Don't have done that. So we were the first do that. And the purpose of going back to that stories I know how difficult it is. To start a business especially as a minority Hispanic female founder over the age of thirty. So I was really scared to start this and I. Just. Kept finding excuses left a brighter I'm going to consult or help this person with their brand, and it finally got the place at I was just sitting there and I realized. What do I have to lose? What's the worst thing that could happen? So I- self-financed and out of my upper side small studio apartment I launched a test of Lawley and so that was the beginning. Lawley is the world's first zero waste organic food grade approach to beauty. I want break each part of that down what does it mean to be Zero Waste We go to farms and fairtrade cops around the world, and we find parts of organic food that are being wasted or being thrown away in the process. So for example, our Plum Elixir, we work with a organic farm four generation owned in France that grows a very rare plummets called the end tape them and sa- tiniest considered like the fog or caviar of plums it's it's quite unique. It's extremely potent in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, and when they make prune juice or pitted prunes, they were throwing away the colonel. And the Patriarch the father of this owner of the farm. About ten years ago said wait. We, press avocado oil from the pit of an avocado. We press all sorts of oils from pits Robin Doyle, why can't we press an oil and organic food grade oil from the pit of the plum? And he literally invented it like they're no one had ever had plum oil, and then he worked with the French bent to get it organic certified and recognized as a food ingredient, and then we started working with them and realized how powerful it was for skin hair

Boston Uprising Beat Houston Outlaws in Overwatch Playoffs

"We gotta start at the top but Boston uprising defeating the Houston outlaws it three to one. I, know shrug in chat as has shown up specifically to hear this one's Oh. People will will tune in for this one I mean like I was very vocal about it after the match on twitter. It's it's very easy to deduce what went wrong in this game and that is a woefully under coached and unprepared team tried to do something that's never been viable in the history of overwatch. And they tried to do it at a time when it makes little sense as humanly possible for their strategy to be effective and This was purely a coaching failure to me. There's just no two ways around it. They lost to a team that had previously won two games on the season that we discussed this potentially being actually worsen over watch the the Owen Forty Shanghai dragons from season. One we on ironically had that conversation They tried to run Faira in a hit scan Meta that that's it. They treated it like it was a lock and load must pick day Spanish. How Long Months Months. Training a GPS player to become their main tank and then when they needed their main tank to play a GPS hero like road hog, they swap in different DPS player to. Free up their main tank player to fly around in the sky and play Farah. Now if you'RE WANNA run fair I have no issue with it being hydration right that the man was previously transcendent on the hero like he did things that nobody else was really able to do on a was I'm talking back, season one. Better. Find is a history lesson not not a a me trying like compare people recent times. So I have no issues with with hydration being that guy but. The road hog was perfect for him. What we're seeing throughout this tournament is that Kinda Best Road for the teams that are using it Are the maintain players that adapt into it There's a certain of positioning in coordination in a style to this version of roadlog. If you're running a measure main tank, you still kinda needed to operate as your main tank in needs the control space and hold corners and just absolutely play it much like you would a reinhard in a way. You know you're playing on your corners and you're using your natural cover because you don't have a shield still kind of in the same position and now we have. blase coming in and playing it and I thought he did a pretty good job. I mean people were talking about how great fusions looked kind of thought blase out performed fusions. But he did it in a different style that was kinda worse for the team or he was much more flaky. He was much more Ganji player. South road hogs. So our doom players, the accurate one, right that's what what ways and it just didn't quite have the same level of impact. But I think he kind of outperformed fusions thought he got more value out of the picked infusions dead. This fight was lost in the hero select screen. Apparently, their first scrim because in a game where. And Ash are two of the best DPS selections they decided. We can run fair with a one hundred percent pick right and it's just gonNa work and that's like I said something that's never once been true in the history of overwatch like even when widowmaker and macree and ash suck. It doesn't work because you have diva you have. Anna were both also mainstays in the lineup for the Boston uprising. They never have of a counter area you're doing it. Why would we stop doing? It was just asinine. Eh. Just absolutely ridiculous. There was no backup strategy they going into the last map they played it on everything Lee Jang Tower control, center like literally everywhere. It doesn't matter how bad at historically is it doesn't matter anything. They're just like this was right right it's. Been True. There's no indication indication that this should be true. Every theory craft and you could possibly do tells you fair as this is the same chief, isn't the pack for her next patches live. Server. Patch, I could see that being a viable strategy because they really are doing allowed to the hit scans and they're adding damage fall off to widowmaker and all these things right? Are they doing those things dream? Why are they doing those things harsha because they hit scan heroes are overpowered. So you just literally three headed your way into being beaten by the worst team in the. League You all should be fired literally everybody in the coaching staff should just go and and you've got to rebuild again because they just literally. The worst coaching job I can remember seeing in overwatch leaving I can't even sit there and blame the Oh and forty Shanghai. Dragons. Entirely on their coaching staff a little but good portion of it was just a roster wasn't capable at Sarah there. This roster was absolutely capable of the task at hand. The fact that everybody loves the PICK ON THE HOUSTON outlaws and everybody nobody wants to give him credit nobody picks him in any pickles ever ninety five percent of brackets were busted by this game.

Has Globalization Undermined the American Working Class?

"America's working class has been cheated is an assertion that has been getting a lot of currency lately are last presidential election went deep on that claim in both parties by the way and the culprit most often blamed for that. It's that monstrous five syllable word globalization, the philosophy and the practice of free trade which has been great for companies and for shareholders but has had a devastating impact. It is argued on the American working woman and. Man Well Economist do agree that in the past four decades the American working class, which we're defining tonight as people who lack a four year college degree. They have seen flat wages and a steady disappearance of good jobs. But is globalization a main reason that that's happening to those workers and for those workers is globalization entirely bad. Well, we think this has the makings of a debate. So let's have it. Yes or no to this statement globalization. has undermined. America's working. Class I'm John Donavan, and I stand between two teams of experts in this topic who argue for and against this resolution globalization has undermined America's working class as always. Our debate will go in three rounds and then our live audience here at the Saint Regis Hotel and Aspen Colorado where we are appearing in partnership with the Aspen Ideas Festival will choose the winner and as always if all goes well civil discourse, we'll. Also win a resolution once again, globalization has undermined America's Working Class Jared Bernstein you have debated with us before. So welcome back you're a senior fellow at the center on Budget and policy priorities. You were Vice President Joe. Biden's chief economist. The last time you debated with US interestingly Jason Furman who is your opponent at the other table tonight was your debate partner as a team you were formidable formidable I, almost want to use the French pronunciation. Formula, so are you planning to use your insiders knowledge of Jason's debate battles against him to very much am the way to do that with Jason is to make a lot of sports analogies because they repealing confusing. All right. Thank you and I see you detail to Aspen. You were a to aspen well I. Think the guy with the tie is the guy you want to listen to, but I'll let you decide. All right. Thanks very much. Jared Bernstein and can tell us who your partner is. This someone I've known for twenty five years she's a dear friend of mine and I consider her my mentor in this topic feely gentlemen feeling. Theo welcome to intelligence squared your president of the Economic Policy Institute. You've spent two decades as an economist for the AFL CIO, which is America's largest federation of unions. It represents some twelve point, five, million working women and men. You've spent twenty five years working on trade policy. So what got you interested in trade? Well, when I came to Washington in the early nineties I got drawn. INTO THE NAFTA debate the North American Free Trade. Agreement. And I realized pretty early on that. This was not some kind of a dry text book discussion about tariffs but it was a transnational battle over democracy good jobs, workers, rights, and regulation. So I was hooked because a lots at stake a lot is at stake. Okay. Thanks very much thelia once again, team arguing for the motion. And motion again, globalization has undermined America's working class. We have to debaters arguing against it, I Jason Firm. Welcome back to intelligence squared Jason you're a professor of the practice of economic policy at the Harvard Kennedy School you're a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, you were Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Obama tonight. As we said, you're going to be debating your former colleague Jared Bernstein on the impact of globalization. So is this the first time you to have debated the globalization issue with each other jared and I agree on I'd say about ninety five percent of economic issues and my goal tonight is to bring to one hundred percent. Thanks very much Jason and can you tell us who your partner is someone I've only known for a few years and every single thing. He's ever told me I have believed James Manica Legitimate James Manyika. Welcome the first time telling squared you're a senior partner at McKinsey, and company you're the chairman of their economics research arm, the McKinsey Global Institute, your first time debating with us. But not your first debate you debated at Oxford I did you studied robotics and computers earlier in your career you were visiting scientist at NASA. So how do you go from very eclectic from robotics and space to thinking about trade policy? In American. Workers I've always been fascinated by the kinds of technologies that drive innovation and growth, but also affects what will people in the real world actually do. So when you put that together with the economy, these issues around trade and workforce become very, very important. Those are the issues that motive a great perspective to bring here and then once again, thank you. Thank you again to the team arguing against them.

The Mystery Of Dark Energy

The Mystery Of Dark Energy

"Going out into nature hiking paddling looking up at the stars has always helped me center myself. It reminds me that I'm just Madeleine Kelly via one human among millions of critters and trees and galaxies that don't care about me or acknowledged me at all. I'm just a group of random atoms matter taking up space. In it turns out that matter as we normally think of it is a tiny tiny portion of the universe meaning your genes, the ocean trees, computers, all the stars, and planets. All of that is only five percent of the universe and the rest of the stuff is dark matter and dark energy right? which is wild. That's so. Much. That's too much of it. Honestly. Yeah. It's like a very uncomfortable place to be in when you think about. We study the universe and theoretically we understand. You know on some scale, how the universe works, and then all of a sudden you're like Oh wait we actually do not understand like over ninety five percent of our universe what the large majority of our universe is made up of this mysterious thing called I kid you not. Dark Energy. In get this it's how we know that our universe is expanding. I learned about dark energy honestly like three weeks ago and it blew my mind dark energy is intrinsic to the fabric of Space Time that is somehow pushing galaxies apart. This is Sarafina Nancy's Day job. I am a PhD student at UC, Berkeley, studying, Supernova, and cosmology Supernova meaning an exploding star that can help us understand how our universe is changing. You know no big deal. It's a really phenomenal thing in sort of the scale of the universe to see something change, and that's this class of astronomy called transients where things change in the night sky and you can learn about them through their changes. So today we explore one of the universe's biggest mysteries dark energy from the days of Einstein Stein to the exploding stars that help us understand the very fabric of our universe. So Okay Serafina, to really understand dark energy, we have to go back to to Einstein right. Yes. So Einstein came up with this theory of general relativity, which is basically his version of gravity in the early nineteen hundreds and. The only way to make his equations work. And satisfy what he thought was a static universe. He introduced this. Fudge factor in his words called cosmological constant. So Einstein actually thought that the universe was static, not not that it was expanding. That's right and over the next ten years people. Sort of manipulated these equations and tried to find solutions and started hinting at perhaps the universe wasn't static. Well it's nice to see that Einstein could get things wrong. That's cool. So. The funny thing is this cosmological constant he called his biggest blunder. Honestly Nice to hear Einstein. Say I messed up you know what I? Can. act. The Fun fact is that he ended up actually being right So it turns out that that cosmological constant is exactly what we think dark energy is necessary to actually describe our universe. I feel like that's classic. Einstein him being wrong being more right than I've ever been in my entire life exactly. Yes. Okay. So After. Einstein introduces this idea that that the universe is static. We figure out actually that the universe is expanding, right? Yes. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty, nine, Hubble Edwin Hubble. Showed that the universe is not static it's actually expanding. what he did is he measured basically galaxies and how far away they are, and he found that galaxies are actually moving away from us. So that means that the universe is not static. It's in fact expanding in at this point, we think that the universe is expanding but that that expansion is slowing down, is that correct? Exactly. So we think that the expansion comes from the Big Bang and it comes from inflation, which was right after the Big Bang which this rapid expansion of space. But because there's gravity universe and there's mass universe we would think that gravity starts to take over and the expansion decelerating because gravity starts to pull things back at and then in in the late nineties, we get turned on her head again, right there's another big discovery and we're like Oh way way way. Maybe she's not slowing down. That's right. So in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, and in one thousand, nine, hundred, nine, two teams that were studying a specific type, of Supernova, and they found that these supernova that were super far away from us were fainter than what we would have expected if the universe was in fact expanding but decelerating expansion. And the only way to explain away dot faintness is if the universe was instead accelerating its expansion. Wild we went from the university static. Okay. It's not static it's expanding, but it's slowing down that expansion. Two Way Way Way not only is it expanding, but it's expanding faster than we thought it was and it's speeding up in. In in the explanation for that is dark energy you killed it. That's right. Nailed it. Okay. So so yes, we have finally gotten to the point where I can ask you Sarafina what is dark energy? So. I think the only answer to that question is we don't know Oh, come on Sarafina you all the way here. You told me I'm showing story and we don't know I know it's it's really uncomfortable to sit with. We can see dark energy through its effects on the expansion of the universe, but we don't actually know what it is. Wow. I. Don't even know I. don't even know what to say about that. That's so. Because it's it's wild. We don't know what dark energy is, but we know it exists. Yes. In was what are you doing over there astronomers were. Four to five percent no. So that I mean that's that's wild in the amount of dark energy is staying the same right. So. That's that's an interesting question. So I liked to kind of describe dark energy and the expansion of the universe in The way that I think about it is sort of picture a loaf of bread and picture a bunch of reasons and the bread. And the reasons are like our universes galaxies and the bread itself is like Space Time Okay and so as you bake the bread, the bread rises and the raisins get farther and farther apart they're sort of carried along the fabric of space time, which means that the distance between. Galaxies increases with time. Okay, I'm with you I'm with you and the introduction of dark energy is like imagine you have the special type of yeast that you can put into a bread and the breads starts to rise with the East and then all of a sudden it starts to rise all lot and it gets bigger and bigger and bigger over time, and that's dark energy.

Can Victoria get it done in three more weeks?

"Sino Men People Victoria had been working really hard for weeks and weeks now to try to get the numbers down there and they've gone from seven hundred ish new cases of Covid Day Dan to two hundred in about three weeks. I'm sorry there's another three weeks before those restrictions are due to the stage four restrictions. How likely is that going to be able to go back to a normal way of life at that time? There are a lot of variables I think is highly unlikely that people will be going back to a normal way of life in Victoria for a long time to come, for example, mandatory mass to be out there for a long time to come what's a long time I don't know the answer to that question. But really for quite awhile, and certainly it's going to be a help to have mandatory masks when they do start relieving restrictions I think we're going to be very nervous about lifting restrictions with anything more than zero spreads. So that's what they're expected expecting but I think that's Unlikely, in three weeks and people getting tired in D., H. S.. So you've got some incredibly hard workers who the contact tracing the testing who are running teams and they're getting really tired. It's emotionally difficult for them. They're they're doing incredible work as indeed are victorians under this lockdown you'd have to say so an since which those teams hold together manage to actually go the distance themselves and then are those teams really being held by the system. So you've got h care that still a problem Victoria it's not at all clear the extent to which you've got healthcare worker problems in hospitals. They were very late telling us about the role Melbourne break. There were probably late telling us about the Franks hospital. If to save face or political problems, they're not telling us about hospital outbreaks and those continue and they're being spread to patients. I don't know whether they are not one here's anecdotes, but if they don't get in there and solve those very specific problems of high risk workplaces like food, processing storage, and so on. And each care and hospitals then they could continue to be sources of outbreaks moving forward. So has the department got the capacity to get in there and just as a matter of interest for you the that's not the responsibility of Brett Sutton chief health officer. There are other by teen structure in Victoria, and they have a chief medical officer who's in charge of safety and quality in healthcare and the and the bureaucrats obviously have a major responsibility here. So let's hope that they can get on top of that to control the epidemic. What's Christmas look in Victoria look they could be zero spread certainly by Christmas we. Should be zero spread well before that but it's this ability to actually get in there and deal with that and deal with it transparency transparently and shine a light on where the problems and admit to it because admitting to it is not just taking flak in the press. This is about actually the whole system being organized around with our full who points of the outbreak, and we know that there are focal points already and just telling us what their efforts are in those areas and their strategy because at the moment I suspect some daughter are being hidden from us and we don't know and I don't think they're going to get zero spreading unless they can sort that out. Well, we've got some. Feedback and some clarifications from audience and thank you all so much for talking to us and letting us know what you're thinking about when you're listening. I'm recalling clarification corner that's right and so the first clarification to clarify is that we asked you guys to send in how long it was taking tests to come back where you live and we said that remote parts of Australia it was taking twenty four to forty eight hours and then in Melbourne in Victoria it was taking about five days and people saying that Nar, lots of friends and family getting Melvin test results back in twenty four to forty eight hours. True. So maybe there was a bit of a self selecting bias there as a health. And Science report is we should be on that but thanks for keeping us on ties with that one you guys ended no defense. We did say it was anecdotal, but that's not us being defensive. We should have probably emphasized that and I have another question for clarification, which comes from our episode where she can go back and find which is why vaccines mandatory and we talked about their research, which showed the suggested what the order of symptoms where which started with fever went to cough and so on and quite rightly people have written in and saying that is not to be taken as Gospel absolutely is right. The any of the symptoms that you get in any order it doesn't you don't. Have to fever go and get tested. So Muscle sore throat that sort of thing get tested fevers essential and another thing that we're getting a lot from you guys on is questions about vaccine. So we thought we would do a quick fire Monday on vaccines and just try to cover up as many of your questions as possible. So Norman you ready to answer some vaccine questions off too deep breath ready to go. Now, how is an unvaccinated person a threat to a vaccinated person? So I take it this comes from comments at government level where people are saying well, if you're not immunized, you won't get on a train or you want to go to an office situation and what have you What's the problem with that? If everybody else is vaccinated well. The fact of the matter is that. This issue of Herod Immunity. and. The more people who are immunized the less circulating ours you've got and the less have spreading it. So a big reason why you want ninety five percent of kids in their first year of life to be immunized and a lot of the rest of us to be reunited as well as so there's not much around. So kids who are vulnerable in the first three or four months of life don't catch hooping cough. So in a sense you, we are trying to remove the burden of disease in the community how they distributed, but it's Unclear but I would imagine through general patches through pharmacies and also targeted immunization programs to healthcare workers and heath care centers, and so on. It would be very silver to try and create a whole new process. For this, we've got recognize immunizing the public and that's what we should use. In this case just make sure it was just the right place because you're going to maintain a call chain. So the viruses are active and effective when when you get to the point of delivering is there enough evidence to suggest that it's safe not yet. Which is why those phase three trials. So important, it doesn't take that many cases to actually find out whether it works and human beings. Maybe four hundred people need to be infected with covid nineteen in vaccine experiment so that the two hundred, the placebo two, hundred in the active group to find out whether it works but you gotTa do it maybe thirty thousand people to find out that it's safe just to be sure that rare side effects don't emerge. The answer is no particular question on pregnant women will it be safe? Pregnant women? The answer is unknown at this stage. It's known that the influenza vaccine is safe is very safe in pregnant women, and in fact, pregnant women must be immunized for influence because you do not want to catch influence when you're pregnant. And you don't want to be to catch it two straight after birth. So pregnancies. A really important question to be asked. So pregnancy and children and immuno-compromised those are the groups of people where you are going to have to test it and be sure it's likely. It will be safe from past experience. But some of these vaccines are very new technologies that haven't been properly tested in all groups. In the community we do know that the Oxford style vaccine which is the chimpanzee virus has been tested. In children in with other viruses it's been around for a while that technology and it was safe and children and effective with other viruses. I can't quit you homegrown in my head at the moment but says some experience there but the Mr Vaccine from the United States or Germany those we are yet to be tasted in those groups will get the vaccine I while they say that what who get it are. People who are older people complicated medical problems, healthcare workers, and high risk environments. Those sorts of situations which will be is I, but here's the problem. If you don't immunize the poll population as quickly as possible, the virus is mutating all the time and that if you vaccinate if you immunize than mutations of the virus which are not covered by the vaccine could escape. And multiply if you don't get in there, do it quickly and that's one of the problems of Mexico or wherever is taking up the Russian vaccine some countries trying out in a couple of thousand people. You could actually get mutations of the virus surviving in countries like that and seaways antibody resistance, and we could be creating a nightmare for herself by ourselves by another country. Just little bits of immunization and we get viral resistance. Well, that's a real nice note to end on. Thanks everyone for your vaccine questions and let us know if you lock these quickfire rounds and if so what you'd like us to talk about next time

Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections

"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.

JD.com Announces 2020 Second Quarter and Interim Financial Results

"We're GONNA start, with, JD DOT com second quarter profits and revenue came in higher than expected for China's largest online retailer and active customer accounts for JD DOT COM up thirty percent year over year. That is. What's more impressive is when you think thirty percent year over year increase if you're talking about something that starts at a thousand and ends up at one thousand, three, hundred, that's impressive. But when you go to four hundred and seventeen million active customers. In some ways in some ways, China the numbers in China. Almost feel like cheat codes right? Like like the numbers just don't even feel real. It's like someone typed in an extra comma or another zero or whatever. Yeah. Four hundred and seventeen million active customers, and you could see this coming. We've talked a lot about JD DOT com and how aggressive they. Were at setting up their own infrastructure over the last few years and how they have supported both their customers, and also they opened up very quickly almost like a shop type network throughout the country and people have into it like gangbusters. So hot calm is it's an incredible company. It's an absolutely incredible company. I'm glad you mentioned the investments they may because we. When you just look at how the stock is the stock's up a couple of percentage points today, it's up around seventy percent year to date. But when you back that out the previous year and a half basically from mid twenty eighteen to the end of last year, the stock is basically flat. You know this company a lot better than I do I was looking at that chart and thinking. I'm wondering if that year and a half where the stock basically didn't go anywhere was them. Sorry to compare them to Amazon but just thinking of the years in which bays us would just come out every quarter and basically be like we're making investments we're making investments and. It seems like the investments JD. Dot Com has been making a really paying off right now. They really are in one of the interesting things jd dot. COM has an absolutely fascinating backstory. It started out as a as a physical property place where people could go and buy electronic equipment cables and things of that nature, and they lost ninety five percent of their business. When SARS hit China, they had almost nothing online and the CEO Richard Leo realized that online was the wave of the future and so he wanted to harden his company. Future. Problems. So they got rid of almost all of their business and went all online and they did so during an epidemic and so they were ready for this Monday. They absolutely were were were ready for this and these results are I mean you're exactly right? It's almost like English ivy like at hangs out for a while and then boom it takes over everything jd dot com is for a while and boom it is taking over everything.

How To Run A Bowling Alley-Arcade-Restaurant-Bar In The Middle Of A Pandemic

"Would be even harder than just running a restaurant. Come on. Running a restaurant there was also an arcade was also a bullet. Right. There you can't the business involved a bunch of people touching stuff. Really. Yeah, and sharing shoes, right har you disappeared shoes, right so many questions. Well, the good news is today we have guests. Could. Speak exactly that because among other things he has co founded a bowling alley. Bar. And Love, I have so many questions about the bowling alley of model before or even before I should say the corona virus hit. So I'm looking forward to this one. Where could I just say one more thing crazy or we bring guests not gone con- do you know that I want bolted to sixty three? Strike. As effect. Pick Sur- it didn't happen not so nice. Say it a high school I otherwise I would have had fucking. Anyway a likely story trust. Numerous introduction today I'm very excited someone who he should have had it on a long time ago long even before virus finally getting on. Adamos AMAC. So as mention he's the CO founder of decades is a bowling alley arcade bar in restaurant in Lancaster Pennsylvania in is an economist. is the chief economist at work, which is an online freelancing platform. So kind of the perfect guest to talk about the macro of what a seeing the economy, but also in the micro of actually run or try to run a business. extraordinary. Time. Adam Ozanich. Thank you for joining us. Thanks for having US I. Guess you don't have to worry about disinfecting the shoes right now because I assume no one's volume. Bowling or they are willing they are bowling there socially distance bowling. What's that? So we have six lanes at decades, and this means that you can bowl on every other lane and we always have a fairly small maximum group size anyway. So that's really concerning. Do you disinfect the bullying Balser. What happens are people like spraying antibacterial spray into the holes every time they come out yet we have disinfectant. We always disinfectant shoes in one of the things that. Might surprise people about how we're a little bit advantage coming into this is disinfecting was like a big part of what we did before. the PIN number saw we've always disinfected our shoes after every single us and we've actually had a throughout the business we have. Stations of hand sanitizer. They've always been there. We've got I love the five of them. Arcade. But we're pretty clean place. If you're just picturing like a regular bowling alley arcade, that's not a good imaging mind to hold what decades is like we're fairly upscale place. It's a commonplace where you'd be comfortable getting a cocktail and we've got chandeliers hanging out. Nice. Leather couches. It's like a nice. It's a nice place. You're totally comfortable buying a good cocktail. They're so like we work hard to keep it clean and make feel clean we always have. So disinfecting that we've been part of what we do the only thing sort of extra We now we disinfect the Arcade Games all day long and we disinfect bowling ball's all day long. So, took us a little bit about like, okay. What is business like pre-crisis accompanying business like yours bullying are your? What is the sort of business model love Blake in normal times in terms of where you make money or the profit opportunities are I assume some aspects are more loss leader than others like Linda just normal day to day the business of running back. Sure. So it's really four businesses that overlap the restaurant, the bar, the arcade in the bowling alley there's a lot of fixed cost operating all of them. So there's not really a profit margin overall area, but you get sort of operating margin it do you. Basically make money on all areas in the business. I'm they're just different different kinds of operating structures. So like in the restaurant is a high costumes sold business that means there's a lot of materials that go into each dollar you sell, but the front costs are smaller share. Bowling is like a massively fixed cost business. So like your ninety, five percent of the cost of boom is a fixed cost which was putting in lanes. On the marginal dollar bowling, you have really high margins and same thing is true for. The big cost of machines you have the cost of tokens you have maintenance repair costs, but those are relatively minor. Via Arcade is that a high margin business tone The good news about climb margin businesses is you can afford to do all sorts of like discounts on them to make them into laws leaders if you have nights of the week where you want to. You, know if you have like a lover capacity night of the week, you can do something like everybody who comes in Lottomatica gets two dollars for tokens. When you in the food business in the restaurant business if you want offer discounts, it's really get into. You know actually losing a loss leader with bowling arcade it's all opportunity cost. There's you know it's really hard to lose dollar someone balls it costs you like. Almost, nothing to let them all. In your cades. This is something I always wondered given that there's so many different businesses involved in something like a bowling alley that also serves food and drinks and has video games well but what's best deal for a customer? Would it be just going there to bowl and not buying food or drink or would it be going narrative buy food or drink because the cost of food and drink is subsidized by the bowling alley or? I know it changes all the time, but I'm just curious whether there's there's one thing that kind of stands out to you. So it's definitely, you can find specials throughout the week. If you WANNA bowl, it's cheaper to bowl off on like a night of the week doing a special order nor Keagan doing special. So Nat Sense. You're talking cost minimization coming outside of peak hours is going to be the best way to do it. It can be pretty busy on the weekends saw. Do you WanNa make sure you can play your game and unlike Saturday night you know you have to get there kind of early to get signed up all. It gets pretty busy because six lanes. So from a cost minimization perspective queuing perspective the slower days of the week you better odds. But in the put on my economist hat, the real value is not determined by the cost the inputs the value is how much get out of it so in my mind. Whole SORTA experience. It's great full. Complete evening. So I like the total package she come in you blend games you bowl an entire evening is a lot of stuff you can do with your friends. So it's sort of irrelevant to the consumer what what the relative costs you're looking at what your consumer surplus from and it's true. You can save money by bowling on a Tuesday night, for example, but. Your friends might not be able to go out on a Tuesday night. All sort of gather at specific times. You mentioned the ability to give out token maybe two dollars worth of tokens if you WANNA to come in on a night that typically less busy have turning. into a loss leader to grow food sales. But I'm curious about the token aspect US specifically in part because there is this nationwide. Shortage so that mean you guys don't have to worry about the coin right I of bunny token. That's right. We don't have to worry about the coin shortage right now. But that's because of lessons learned about coin shortages and we we get our own coins minted. They say decades on them never nice little. Picture on them of our logo you, designed to coin up my heart. Sinden, he's the one of my partners is that he's an artist and designer marketing guide and he he designed the coin. It looks great. We did have a coin shortage early on. So we ordered what we thought you know speaking. The token people are used to dealing with arcades. And we have also are the person we are teams from WHO has a lot of our experience and we talked to both of them we got this is how many coins you should have for an arcade of your size, but demand was so strong at first the velocity of spending we couldn't keep up with it. We didn't have nearly enough tokens and it took US actually like months to get caught up to the amount of tokens that we should have. Because it takes a while to them. There's a backlog also, you're sort of in denial about how much you Tokens. Because, you think about is like well, we're GONNA spend this little bit of front nettle. Be It for Tokens but people walk away with Tokens. Fine. 'cause you think you're going to bring them back eventually even if they don't, it cost less than a token mitt less than a quarter to make token. So like someone buys one hundred dollars tokens and frozen in the trash, we make money on that. We don't make as many as if they gave back to us, but we still make money. Right? But when we first opened up, we had just this massive coin shortage 'em. What required was constant constant emptying of the Arcade Games. If you have here token level set crackly, you shouldn't have to Vr your your games throughout the night it maybe once. Or twice on like a Saturday she really busy. But they're big. They have big containers on them. They're meant to be held up with the days where you said you should have to empty them. but we opened Keith the supply of coins moving. We had to be constantly engaging, and this was actually I was doing this a lot. I don't actually work there on a partner, but I don't think take salary I don't have a job there. But I was for our. I like opening week weekends. I was there like our busiest times wearing the decade shirt like a staff member going around the emptying the ski ball machines who machines just emptying the tokens and keeping them moving basically long so that that's the cost of a coin shortage says you have to. Interject yourself into the the arcade economy and keep them moving.

Public health expert: 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be 'better than what we have now'

"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.

I mean really it was about a week after we wanted to quarantine. So we all went to quarantine from school Friday, the thirteenth, and then maybe seven to ten days later my daughter got sick cough fever search you have a little trouble breathing. Thought well, this can't be Kovic she's been in quarantine right? We haven't been in contact anybody in as far as I knew there was nobody at school who had had covid Right, around that time when quarantine was happening, I had a little bit of a sore throat and a headache nothing major but I did my usual kind of functional. Medicine Integrative Medicine dosing that I do and I get sick and I teach families. My husband had something similar but we we were fine then a week after Kenzi got sick she recovered ten days fever cough you know not feeling well little bit alot ish tonight a similar. She got maybe about ninety four, ninety, five percents but that's literally on Day ten. It was like the switch flipped she she bounced back and she was completely like nothing ever happened. A few days later, my son starts to get a fever and I'm like, oh no, it's going on here. Right at the time. Remember early in the days of the pandemic testing was really not available I mean that available. Right so but then even more. So I managed to get a swab and do swab my child, which is not fun experience and the Senate to quest four days later it came back negative. Okay. Maybe she caught something. Weird, right Then when Bodey start to get, he had a fever and stomach ache his tummy was hurting him so much that was his symptom and that in the fever little bit a sore throat and so I thought and even back then the early days remember we we know so much more about covid nineteen than we did back in. February march and remember this is March back in the early days we still have so much word learn right but abdominal pain was kind of maybe a symptom maybe not subdue might.

Now I was low dam up with all the supplements that I had researched. You know for Kobe nineteen both preventatively am for support. Active Illness and I fully one hundred percents. We're GONNA talk about some of the things that I did but that the interventions that I was able to do for him through the through the research really helped him to bounce back very quickly.

7 Habits of Successful People That Will Make You Feel Unstoppable in 2020 by Brian Tracy

"Seven. Habits of successful people Dow Make You feel unstoppable and twenty twenty by Brian Tracy of Brian. Tracy DOT COM. Many. People wonder how they can become highly successful not realizing that they hold within them everything they need to achieve all of the success they desire. Successful. People are where they are today because of their habits habits determined ninety five percent over prisons behavior everything that you are today and everything that you will ever accomplish is determined by the quality of the habits that you form. By creating good habits and adopting positive behavior, you too can become successful and live a prosperous life. These seven success habits are good predictors of greatness. For thousands of years in human life has been studied by great thinkers and philosophers. I've personally studied the subject for more than thirty years would I found is that the very best people have developed good habits I've identified seven valuable habits you need to develop if you want to perform at your very maximum in everything you do. Number one their goal oriented. The. FIRST HABIT IS BECOME goal oriented. You need to be habitual goal setter and dedicate yourself to working from clear written goals. Every day of your life forming daily habits. All highly successful people are intensely goal oriented. They know exactly what they want to have it written down they have written plans to accomplish it and they both review and work on their plans. As a daily routine. I suggest you learn how to use the eighty twenty rule to officially work toward achieving your goals. Number two their results driven. The second habit of highly successful people is being results driven. This is made up of two practices. The first practice is the practice of continuously learning so that you become better at what you do. The second practice is that of time management, this means setting very clear priorities on what you do and then concentrating single-mindedly on the most valuable use of your time. All. Really successful people are intensely result oriented. Number three, they are action oriented. The third major habit you need to develop is that of continually taking action. This is really the most important habit for material. Success is the ability to get on with the job and get it done fast is your ability to develop and maintain a sense of urgency and a bias for Action Fast Tempo in whatever you do is essential to your success. He need to overcome procrastination push aside your fears and launch one hundred percent toward the achievement of your most important goals. The combination of goal orientation result orientation, and Oriental in. Themselves will virtually assure great success. I highly suggest you learn to use smart goals to list achievable targets that you can measure and track. Number Four. There people oriented. The fourth having you need is people. is where you put relationships in the center of your life. This is your decision to cultivate within yourself the habits of patience, kindness, compassion, and understanding virtually all of your happiness in life will come from your ability to get along well with other people. The good news is that you can become a wonderful human being in your relationships with others when you decide to as Aristotle said, the only way that you can learn any habit is by practicing it on a regular basis. The more you practice being a truly excellent person in your relationships with others the more you will internalize those qualities actually become that person. Focusing on being more pleasant with the people in your life is a great technique to promote a positive thinking lifestyle. Number five, they are health conscious. The Fifth Abbot highly successful people develop is health consciousness. This means that you must studiously watch your diet and always eat the right in the right portions you must exercise on a regular basis, continue using every muscle in joint of your body to keep it limber and fit. Finally only, you must have good habits of rest and recreation though unable you in combination with Diet and exercise to live out your years in a healthy state. Remember your health is the most important single thing you have, and it is completely subject to the habit you developed with regard to the way you live. Number. Six, they are honest. The. Six habit is out of honesty and integrity. In the final analysis that character develop as he goes through life is more important than virtually anything else honesty means that you practice the reality principle in everything you do your completely objective with yourself and with the world around you

OSCAR: NASA is developing tech for turning trash into gas in space

"Orbital sin gas commodity. Augmentation reactor is an early career initiative that studies technology to convert trash and human waste into useful gases such as methane, hydrogen, and Carbon Dioxide by processing small pieces of trash and a high temperature. Reactor Oscar is advancing innovative technology for managing waste in space. Here's Anne Meyer, a chemical engineer at Nasr's Kennedy Space, center? So on a one year mission crew four would produce around twenty five, hundred kilograms of trash. We can convert over ninety five. percent of that solid trash into gas it's enough gas that you can convert into a fuel that could do things like course, correct spacecraft or used to send a small payload from the surface of the Moon or Mars. But what could Oscar mean to us on earth? Especially, in the United States we see a lot of landfills and the same technology developed for space travel could be used to process our solid trash right here at home

Ghost of Tsushima: Creative Director Interview (with Spoilers)

"Have a very special guests with us this week that we're both very excited to talk with Jason. Connell from sucker punch. Thank you so much for joining US A. Awesome ear. Very happy to have you of course to go super in depth on Kgo Suma, so for those who are watching end jumping in. Be warned there will be some spoiler fil talking here if you haven't played through the game if you haven't. Checked out everything you want to in the game beforehand. Please do that first and then come back. There's a lot to dive into. We're going to be jumping into as much as we can. Of course if you want spoiler free impressions. We did record episode that a little earlier. Even can go check that out, but. There's so much that we can jump into this game I off. Jason I. Just want to say congratulations for recording this on the day. The game is starting to roll out on launch. Worldwide is already available in some territories as where speaking so congratulations to you on the team on that It's very exciting for to finally be out there as a fan of it and I'm sure it must be exciting for the team. Yes, it's a super exciting to have it out. There cited everybody host their photo mode favorites sin. Just enjoy the Games. I feel like an Brian I think this is true for both you and me. We could probably spend the next forty minutes talking exclusively about photo mode. Yeah, no I. Just get into that very quickly. What you've created, my favorite voted in video game history, but also. You might notice you. Create one of the most not-so-subtle advertising tools. That is perfect for this game. Because every time I seen pictures of it I WANNA? Play it again, and I think for a lot of people who were just sort of like on the outside, looking in a video games in general like people who aren't just totally head down on stuff all the time. They're like wait what that's! That's a video game. Where do I play I play it? They're going to get that so Yeah, that's a very very smart. If you guys it's absolutely stunning game. A cool. Photo of his crazy because we were one of the first, you know infamous second son was one of the first. At least I know of modern games that have put like a like a photo mode in in that game. It was just like this cool idea to show off all the cool particles and lighting. That game was a while known for. But it was wasn't crafted as a personality around. It was the cool photo mode, and then over time over the last few years. You have these games that out and Spiderman my favorite of version of this where they like adds the flavor of their game to its photos like tied to the personality of that gain. On, the building tops, doing like little cell fees and Doing it with a phone. That was awesome made it. You need to spiderman so when we were like. Hey, what are we gonNA do for voter mood? To? Whatever the ghost photo mode. One, it's gotta be way better than our first one because. Our, follow up one and two. It's gotta be semantically. You know connected to the game, so we're like. Well motion in Wind I. Haven't we like? Make it less about a static image. You can do that, too, but have be about moving frame that I think is so beautiful about our game kind of spun out from there. I didn't think it was odd that you give the main character, a Selfie, stick and the iphone. His drone that goes along with. Little you know little out of place, but I thought butyl. Oh God you know it's been incredible thing to play around with, and you can do what Brian said. Every time I see more of it. It's one of those things where I've been playing every night. Still in, it's like Oh, no, I need to go jump back in the middle of the day. Because like Oh. That's a great spot I never thought. I could take a photo of I've been a particularly obsessed with going to bamboo strike locations and trying to get all the great photos. I cannot have those spot often. You know like perfectly placed at an edge or something. I sort of wondering. Because obviously this was built more with like the photo mode in mind as you development went on, because it's become so much bigger, what was world creation influenced at all by the photo mode, or were there any aspects of designing this game that were influenced by it because it is more like prevately used feature these days I guess than back when second came out. You know. A little secret you know we. We always knew we'd have a photo modem. We knew that this ambitious version of like I. said a second ago better and more dramatically connected. Owning, really work on it until pretty late, so you know we were so. Dedicated to the stories in crafting the world, so when it came to the beauty of the world. That add add everything that's in the game. I would have to imagine that that had the most iterating over anything, because it's one of the first things you do before you have the whole story articulated and put into the game. Certainly don't have cut scenes. You know it's like you're laying out terrain and at that like how does the island look and then it gets into the direction the feeling Cutting, trees down growing trees, making procedural tools like the world is the by far the most iterative on thing now. There was a point where we're like. This is how we make our game. Look good clearings. Big giant swath of like in forests, you know that you can see for miles. Off using color as like landmarks again, the Golden Forest, or read flower fields, and then, and then a you know, certainly that sort of made its way into some of our features of a photo, but the the world designed stuff. took the lead on on end photo mode. Okay, now that we've created this amazing awesome place. How do we utilize the photo mode in like critical photo that will. Take advantage of how great our team at did at creating a beautiful world. I think one of my favorite things about this game is the sort of balanced that it's constantly striking Between being sort of completely serene, and then the music swells up and swords or out, and they're slashing against each other. How hard was it to sort of get that that tone down because I could see. You know I think in in lesser hands I could be a very kind of dangerous. Push and pull, but I feel like you totally nailed that and I think that that's like some people when they look at an open world game want like nonstop jam-packed activities in in your team made the decision to pull back and let things breath every now and then How did all that come together? Well you know for me. It's the first game that I was certainly a visual director on, and so I I would I you learn something about yourself with everything you create, and for me I personally learned that I don't have a natural tendency to like create incredible. Violence, I just wasn't that was uneven. Favor Games, bloodborne like as absolutely my favorite game. Guide. You're on this show. This is gonNA be worthwhile and. About it anytime. But no, seriously like. That's my favorite game, but. When we were crafting the world would I navigated towards with Joanna. Who's environment our leader? This did this amazing a blog post recently on playstation bar. was the beauty of it was taking taking a moment to breathe in, and then I realized that some of my favorite games that are not. Show the classes certainly embraced the idea of atmosphere in a sense of this and you know I donate Fox's is is resonates. Conversations resonated with him as well so then then the conversation shifted into. Okay well. We definitely have it. We have a summer game. So you know without saying anything else as you say Amer game, you know you're going to be hitting things with a four-foot razor blade so. You know violence is GonNa come so we certainly work on that stuff. allied and we wanted to be great and gritty, and the you know like you really WanNa feel like you have contact when you have contact but the other stuff doesn't come as natural, and you have to actually work on that stuff to balance it out, you really do, and so that means like the idea is about creating Haiku, which was actually named idea You know really. Or believe it was taking a moment to. Allow the beauty to take hold, and not what I think is cool about the ICU that I hope people enjoy about it is is that they're not tied till like progression like you're not. You're not like intrinsically forced to go, do it? You know there's a sense of you have to have the wonder and curiosity desire to do it. It's not like game telling you go do this to reach next level certainly, a lot of that is tied to corporation auto out to have to consider that, but it is. It is a work philosophy to try to get that balance of that contrast It takes years to get right for sure. I really enjoyed the Haiku sections actually He was like you said. It's sort of provided like this. This relaxing breeder and I did like the you were able to select different things who essentially collate them into one kind of fresh Haiku each time. Yeah I I mean I did every single side quests in every single objective in this game, but I I really enjoyed those wow awesome. The accuser, some of my favorite ones to the cinematography. You know it was at the moment to like. You know certainly we call them breathing. Moments definitely say that studio, but it was kind of a moment. Regis Art Geek out a little bit like the people who do the cameras. Mottaki, they can place it in to get the right motion and you know, and then the writers have an opportunity to like. Give you give you a couple of cool options. Just the beauty kinda comes through which is which in the end has been a very positive thing for the experience. Yeah, the balance that Brian was. Speaking to how you were sort of describing how that all came together? I could imagine. It's a very fine line between making sure it's peaceful and calm in certain areas, but. It's still engaging for the player because you could always run the risk of it. Being something that the player doesn't want to engage with, but as Brian. Saying like finding those high coups feels like this wonderful moment of solace after I have assassinated an entire Cam Mongols. And need to reflect on Jin's life, but also just the world I, it's this really great balanced that a I think as Brian was sort of saying you always get in games, but it feels so refreshing to hear. And it's a huge part of our philosophy. How we treat. Treat the game. Whether it's a Haiku great example, he could probably keep talking about, but you know the music style music how the music comes on not having things like combat while you're doing, shrine climbs or anywhere near them so that we can let those be their own experience, and so are these, are we? Everything wanted these features that are not mainline missions. Our conversation is like about how much combat how much non-combat and what is the purpose and what are the? What's the feeling for its existence like what what is the emotional goal for for these features and these are conversations? We have a lot and sometimes triple times over we try. We don't like it. We try something else. Well and for me, what's really interesting is sort of the place that all of these features and the things you go on, have sort of in the context of sucker punches past work, because it is I've been such a huge fan of both cooper franchise and infamous. Stir a year and. You know you get increasingly larger, but often more urban. City expenses that you're exploring a lot. In both of those franchises to certain extent here you're out in the wild. There are of course settlements and encampments and things like that, but there is a there's a lot of stretches where it can just be the world around you that you're exploring and I was sort of wondering on a world design level. How do you? How do you balance? Making all of these locations unique to explore as well and interesting. Even though you know a lot of can just be more, the environment's like what are the challenges that come with that? Yeah, so one of our. Our Contractors Jeff He. He talks a lot about content density, and what is the correct density and I really am really thankful that he brought that conversation up to light so much because It's such a you know Thinking about if you're currently doing something, you're going across the world and run into something. How much further would you have to ride your horse before you might find the next thing, or can you see the next thing from where you currently are? How how dense is it and I really enjoyed that conversation? Because it let us think about what's the right philosophy for for our game and it it certainly it allows us to you know if we want to in one place, you just completed something, and you should be able to generally speaking, look around and find one more thing on horizon or see the shrine trying on top of the mountain. It influence our world design alive, because when we first had the game built for the I you know I'd say maybe two years. It was a lot of forest. It was a ton of trees and it was cool, but you always were felt like you were in this like. Tunnel beautiful, but really deforestation. which does a couple things one is? It is very cool, but. It makes it really hard to know where you are without a compass or many map. Something telling you kind of giving you that extra information that your brain is just really needing. So what we did is we started opening up fields and I definitely some shadow, the classes photos out and was like fields as as reference vm. Because it just feels so epic when you're going through field, but but you know the criticism it could be that it's boring or something like that, and and really have to embrace a philosophy that it won't be boring because there's beautiful music. There's five things now that you can see what you want to do next because you're in a field, there's more clearings and it created a Great beauty in the game, but also more opportunity to engage with that density and I I. Really I think that that was one of the conversations that was ongoing throughout the project, but we landed in a really. I think unique spot for. When when when you? When your team was the helping this game, you obviously weren't anticipating a significant portion of the world's population to be stuck indoors for months on end, but At one I mean there were obviously there. Are you know a lot of sort of like entertainment? Things that have come out during quarantined. That didn't really. Fair as well due to their. SORT, of like the way they were delivered or their subject material something that, but this is a game that I really more than ever appreciated as a guy who's in a two bedroom apartment really appreciated huge open fields and. Mountains in like sprawling rivers and seas and stuff like that but I think one of my favorite things about the big open fields is that there's always something? Or there is like a lone tree. And you're just sort of naturally drawn towards it, and I found that like that sort of like beautiful use of negative space to be like so powerful. In terms of like never felt to me like there's nothing ahead of you. This is boring. It always felt to me like this. Is this is this is like a sort of triumphant use of minimalism and and charging towards something. To reveal that there's like one loan item in the distance was so much more engaging tomato like at a mini map that had a hundred time trials, but Hamas other stuff like I. Found Myself uncovering the dog on the entire map which. I was I was like basically riding around in spirals like in that movie alto like I was trying to. Five is in half the time I was on foot to. It was really wonderful game to explore so I. WanNa ask you about that the. The the sort of the way exploration on unfolds in this game is something I. Really Really Love and I think a lot of open world games are going to take note of following the wind and talking to people and following Fox's two locations rather than just you know overtly stating the player. This is where you're GonNa go, or you go to. The map in this big thing opens up. All that come together. What was the push and pull on that to sort of find the right way to keep players in the no, but without making like overwhelming them with information. Yeah I'll talk about kind of our studio kind of struggles, but I also kind of throw in my own, maybe personal philosophy, too. So I. I judge Games my favorite game, especially them really harshly by. How does it feel if you're? You're actually not doing anything on the sticks. I would if you're just sitting there. Just sitting in the world, you're standing in the world. You're on your horse in the world like is there. Is there a what's the feeling and some of my favorite games by just sitting there? There's like things that go through your mind. Like why do we? What are you anticipating? That are stuck on the story or like. Where's that next objective like you're just what's going through your mind? because. That's when you're not doing anything. That's what you're thinking of next like. You're just taking in the beauty looking around our game I hope that translates into that sense of exploration and sense of curiosity like if you do stop for a second yearly, you're not already on kind of a train of thought it is more. One of curiosity is one of like. Hey, what? What do I want to do next? Oh, there's something over there. There's something of their. Oh, I wonder band before, so they're having gone to could check it out and I. think that the more information you were to have on your screen compasses many maps. It kinda answers those questions before you even have time to ask the question. It's just like the dots right there. Let's go do the DOT. It doesn't matter what the DOT is. It's just there's thing let's go do it, and so that that to me is is a really important part of what I think. The Games, Tries to do in the world, and and certainly we did not have the wind when we started on this project at all. In fact, what the wind was which is has got this cool story I'll say quick is. on the first direction slides on the you know we did. A presentation is like one of the first presentation out the way look and feel and everything moves was was one of them like a wind. We're going to double triple quadruple down on win, and you know there's a lot of attack that has to go into that. He got Capes moving I gala hair moving. You gotta get trees and Bushes, and especially for procedurally generated now artistically procedurally generated world. That's really tough. Two years later. Something like that. That became true and you've standing I'm standing in this world and we had other elements we were helped. Augmenting are kind of navigation and get around the world and I'm just like holy crap. The wind is amazing. It actually works at that time. It always like went from East West or West. East or something I can't remember always just directional and it's just. It's really good. And then we started having conversations like how going to get more stuff off the screen to stay in the is like beautiful world more and more because it's just. It's really stunning even years ago. And a one point I had this idea like. The Wind. It sounds kind of crazy and Adrian is like our longtime worked on has been sucker punch. Long Time. They tried a little quick prototype with me. We had like fifteen people play at were removed all the you I just to hey. Can you just just try to follow it and just and it sounds crazy, but follow in if you can get to that hot spring or that on. And it worked like the first prototype fourteen out of the fifteen people were able to easily get there so cool. Yeah and I. I was like Oh. Yeah, we have to do this. Question. Like. This is something that is going to be unique to the game and then an analyzing. Say on them about the wind because I can do it all day, but is it had like the matic ties to the island in historical kind of. Poetic, Tian's to you know. The Mongols came in as typhoon sweeps them all out to see and. You know we name the sword the sky storm after that you know him being a storm, a metaphorical storm on the island for for the island, rooting for the island, and then it was like about nature, and then the animals came along, and I, you know it just felt like a bunch of like one of these critical pieces you don't know exists, and then you find it, and you're like that fifth straight there and does and then nearly. Oh, I, think we have a good. I can see the puzzle now so. Cool, it was cool journey. Having having that comes away. It all it feels so true to the world that the team has created in those moments. Because you know, I'm I'm a completion is player like if you give me a list of a thousand things to go collect if you give me, you know like an infamous. Charge to go collect I. Collect all of them, but there's something that I think does speak so much to this world and end you wanting to be invested in that. It is really by pulling everything. Out of the screen that you're looking at and just letting you look at the world you get more familiar with it, and you start to learn more about Oh. Yeah, I've taken that pass before. That leads to that pillar of honor or there's that cemetery over there as you start to. Trek across the land. It really gets you invest in the world in a way that I think just having a list or a neon sign to tell you where to go would. Deliver it in the same way. Yeah, that's great. That's so. That's the goal so I'm glad you had that experience. And I it's one of those things you know that the open world I think speaks so well to what the team really accomplish with this game, but one of the things I was curious about wasn't and I know. We talked about this a little bit, but released, but since we can. Talk to the island as whole, but what was the? I? Guess the poll the. The back and forth poll of wanting to make sure you stay true to the spirit of this real world location, and honor the history and the people that are but also create a world that at the end of the day would be fun to run around or write a horse around in as a game. Yeah and it's a great topic, and it's kind of been the the struggle for and I would say struggle in a creative sense. It's the creative. From from from once, we actually knew we were making Susha and we started doing all this research, and and you learn so much about the island. Like the fact that at that time it was likely to be like ninety five percent covered in dense forest. Which again I told you we tried. We tried very dense forest in. It's just hard to ride a fun horse through tree. Trees it's. Pretty tough. Also, it's incredibly hilly. We went there just like it's just hill after hill after mountain after Mount After Mountain, also challenging to create a interesting layouts in combat spaces in so. So, we worked with our team in Japan. We're like hey, this is how we were planning on You know being inspired by the shape of the islands. It looks very similar to the actual shape, but here's some kind of Ford as we'd like to take or game reasons you know, make the game more fun to to roam around. The landscapes in have layouts that have. Have Cool puzzle climbing challenges, or what have you were interesting missions, and and they were totally for it you know. And they gave us feedback of maybe when we went too far and then they also they know is in a fun way. They gave us feedback of win. Hey, you could go further with us, and so that was. It was a lot of ultimately. We're super inspired by history, and what happened and then the general beauty of greater. The greater nature of Japan as a whole, it's definitely hugely inspiring to us but we also make in a game and a PR and original story and a lot of things that. Have to Challenge it, but work in tandem with it, so it's it's definitely been a challenge I'm in a good way and we learn so much. And I will say the last thing I'll say on that. Is that within Joyon on the environment? Our team myself in the constitution. We talk a lot about like realism. And You know like A. Maybe painted realism, or maybe, how can we do it like a slightly stylized version of that? And and and you know this is not even if you've ever been to Seattle only did infamous. It wasn't really a stone by stone. Kind of recreation. Roads aren't lined up exactly. It's sort of like if you blur your eyes, you're like Oh. Yeah, that's definitely definitely Seattle like it rains. A lot of people drink coffee. PUNK ROCK and grunge music. It's You know the things that are there the spacing? Like the things you would expect, but it's not the like. Let's put a magnifying glass over, and let's get it like perfectly accurate and we take that same philosophy here. We want to feel like that. This is plausibly. Dass what it could feel like. That's what if we could do smell through it. That would we would try to. Feeling into music, we're going for a as a is a is a main heart. Smell will actually be unlocked on the playstation six. Thirty I. Have Rumor, we have an today since three. Hey listeners.

The the combat in this game is awesome, and that's coming from somebody who to be completely transparent. Wasn't crazy about it. At first 'cause my immediate reaction was. There's no lock on. Think what do you mean? There's no lock on like you can't. You can't have a certified again without lock on and as as I grew to. Appreciate. The sort of dynamic happenstance of a dashing between those four stances and. Fighting different types of enemies. In synchronicity while switching and switching back and forth using my sub moves and everything I was like. This is one of my favorite combat systems interview ever But what what? How did how did that decision? Come to not have have lock on? was that was at a debate internally in the studio? Because that's to me, that's one of those things that people just expect from a video game and I found myself not even thinking about it after a few hours in. I. It's definitely debate right like it's A. It was heavily debated and talked about how you know. From all corners of the CEO there was not some like. I mean because it's a it's a standard. There is a standard anytime. You go against the standard. You need to prove it out and. I'm glad we tried something different than you know. As person bloodborne like my favorite game, I like games that allow you to really kind of hone in and focus, and and control that since a control comes, comes with locking, but and you know, and certainly as a samurais sense of control is a huge fantasy so Yeah, man. We talked about it a ton Maybe when it comes to combat, I would say it's in the top three conversations that we had over the entire course of the project while. But I have to give massive. Shout out to you know. One of the studio heads. You know I've found Sucker Punch Christopher. Men he's he's behind the core design, a lot of the combat and he he works out of the code for it, and there's another Guy Ted. Who is awesome designer? And he liked those two brains man. They worked together, and they figured out a way to create something that is first of all feels like you're hitting the person when you do hit them like it's a tandem as animation, so it's not like a hit box based. It's like these. This animation links up to this one. Is I very newbie? Animation Brain. And it's not just like the slash through thing right, and so they feel like you're hitting the person it feels. A goal is a gritty feeling, but it's also incredibly fast paced at times. You know as you get like five or six people around you you can be, you could be like. Changes. In planning, and when you're going to do the smoke bomb, go around the building and do another. Jump down from the top, you know. It's just like a it. Almost like a the style of it is is better with how the walk on. That's kind of the thing that we found over time especially when she became pro at it. And locking on actually with slow down, maybe in some ways and a sense of control will be got out of it instead was things like standoffs in duels, obviously assassinating somebody having that jump on, somebody gives you that, too, but we decided to really push that those moments or mythic abilities I think are. Usually will help take out people pretty quickly. The mythic abilities are interesting because I I think i. I I'm really glad that this game never really went like supernatural despite having the Word Ghost, in the title. There's. There's other there's an alternate version of this game. Were you guys just want preserved and people are summoning dragons and stuff like that. I appreciate that a lot of the crazy stuff that you got away with felt grounded even like the fire sort is ridiculous, but there's like. Oh there's there's sort of like a scientific explanation. Yeah. And then when you start doing some really intense stuff that feels deliberately over the top like dude, get terrified and they starts crawling away like. Is Watching people just straight up running around. Disappear and stuff like that. It's crazy like this is a i. mean even when we pitches his game. This was another heavily debated. Topic is going to be fantasy based or not, and obviously nate and I felt really strongly as well as many other people that we should not make it fantasy base in like high fantasy base because. It really those first of all there's. Several of those games out there already, and they do a wonderful job and I love neo I love sector, Oh, these games are awesome and they lean on that a little bit more as their unique. You know and so. Good. It's smart of us not to do that, but the reason why we didn't do the reason we did was because we were definitely were focusing a little bit more on the Human Story certainly one of the world to feel plausibly real. And you know if you like, I'll take the example. You just threw out there like having people fall in there, but get scared. Scoot away, man if you could just like, pull out a fucking dragon every five minutes. Scares them like I feel like a real challenge to overcome like and so you have to be constrained. So that when we do pull out something that's really incredible or scary or something like that that it actually has wait to it, you know and. I one of the things I do love about our game in might be some of my favorite content, actually mythic missions because. They. A build up the idea that people were legends like they talk about people in their connection to the island. The lightning one is a great example where you know, they burn the black sand, the sands black, which always like wire, the sands black back answer black, and it just bill out as they build up this legend of people that may have come before you, which is Kinda cool because? because. You're kind of building your own legend. To maybe one day, people talk about mythic stories of the ghost You know that humans can do maybe slightly crazy incredible in your living, example of that and people tell tall tales. I think that's cool. I love win. Jin would go around to the stories and people would be like. There's ghosts in the woods and he's like. No, there's not. Watching watching the people run away after a battle, though my favorite things in the game because it's it teeters on like on on like. Comedy, you would find in like vintage Kung Fu movies where somebody would come and kick. A bunch of Bass and one guy would be like away. Runaway ended every single time was I would let him run like maybe like hundreds of feet pull out my arrow. Cruel Man I know you you put it there. You know you gotta sit there, don't. If you give Brian the high ground. He will let them run as far as he wants to. I what I do love going back to the mythic tells them. You know maybe people one day telling the story of the Ghost I. I'm always sort of a sucker for. Stories that are about storytelling to a certain extent, because I do think you get so much of the human nature that we all deal with on a day to day basis of why we tell stories and everything and I I love that that permeates so much of this game, and not just in the quest, but on the on the ques- structure as a whole in this game I think is really unique, but it works really well. Because as Brian was saying earlier, you can go to a house in. Someone's saying Oh. There are nearby. Please help me or someone one of my favorite stories early on one of the side missions I found was. A woman send you to get food from the bandit that stole it from her. And then you bring the food back and she's like. Oh, thanks! I finally have food down. You're like. Wait a second. That wasn't yours to begin with. I just killed all those guys because you can't, there's. There's this. Stark sadness to a lot of the stories that I think really works in this game and I was just curious on like a total storytelling. Horrible 'cause there are moments of levity. You know like everything with Kennedy I think is so great, but how do you you know balance? I think this is a land and a group of people who are under siege. They're under attack by the suppressive force. At the same time. They are living their lives. There's this humanity going on the island. Hugs, what are some of the struggles that come up and try to tell those stories? Yeah, well first of all. When you started telling me, which story were, I was like racking my brain like which? It was so many. I I know it's crazy and I'm gonNA. Play through a bunch probably that I've played through in a long time, I play retail, but. You know It's balanced because you don't want it to be this like we did not want our game to be this like heavy thing that was constantly hitting you over the head with a that was just not what we wanted for this particular game. Think anybody really goes from bad particularly. I think they're always in goal, but but in it's hard, though because invasion and you wanna see desperation, and you WanNa see like these people have struggles. And frankly you know we want to. You know it's not always like dude. Go kill things, and so you WanNa hear you know people having. Their kids, or this or that like our parents like I. Don't know you just want to hear something that sounds like these people are struggling a little bit. But you know the when it comes to the writing and those stories, most of the stories do most of them do exist to try and reflect at the world has been in invaded, invaded place and. For people that are like these allies, and you engage with those those will get a little bit more in depth than traveling of their story, and for these little small one off encounters. Just say look even even the hasn't class is affected greatly by this and hopefully feel a sense of remorse for them or sadness for them, maybe a sense of duty that why you're doing this stuff, but as for the tone of it. I genuinely like a somber tone in general, I think Sambre is is not dark. Sombre is not grotesque. Sambas is just like a like A. Light sadness to things and I felt like that light sadness in a world that is so incredibly. Beautiful is kind of a nice. Balance and I think we look at it now that way and to some extent. That's a really good way putting now that now that you say that. It makes perfect sense because. You have all these incredible like you know. There's Fox's in this you know. Like. Rainstorms the beautiful trees and yellow leaves, but then you go, do these side quests on. You're like Oh. Wow, that was. Your family died and you can save them and you're like damn. That hit me hard that one. Particularly, there was one side quest for like now I know, too. Hard that one's talents so hard and You know there that one people on on the team who? Created that one, and then like you know as we get through the Polish face like Alan, somebody went through and added a bunch of extra work to that one for animation, and like kneeling down, and you know I you know in from liking that mission to really like connecting with more, and this is a small thing right like this is not a. Two hour long you know big big mission. It's very straightforward and simple cement to just reflects the tone of the world, a little bit and Alan Dow was one of the ones that, even though it's a small moment in your entire through I think improved a lot of the last course of the project I'm glad it exists. That's awesome. Yeah, I I, don't even know if I necessarily have a question about it, but I'm just curious to hear more about the the construction of the the site quests when it comes to the side tails when it comes to those the supporting cast that you get because I do I do think one of my favorite things. Throughout sucker punches, history has been that there is of course he usually a pretty great main character, but also this really great supporting cast as well, and you know going back to sign infamous now with ghost. I loved finding out more about Yuna and lady Moscow and just everyone at the pace that you want to in the world. And that balance I guess my question is because I. do think that's some of my favorite story. Telling him the Games in the game comes from those lines. How do you balance having this stuff? Be Optional I guess if you if a player just wants to go through the main story, but also encouraged people to want to keep going back and revisit these stories in these characters. Yeah Yeah! It's a question you know we From I is long as I can remember. I think I, think earliest pitches of the game we talked about. How we really wanted to create sort of this. Anthology of short stories. know these little little side branches off the main trunk. You know that you could. You'RE GONNA. You'RE GONNA get invited to them on the main truck main story. You'RE GONNA. Get invited them and maybe even once or twice in an engaged with them, but it's up to you hopefully, engaging enough for that story relates to you. It's up to you to kind of go. Finish out the rest of that branch, and we do a lot of stuff like we try to reward you for doing these things but I find that those things are They're good and I'm super glad. Glad reward you in different ways for playing these, but I find that the beauty of those those allies missions. If you will Masako. Norio characters is that they're just they're. They're far more developed in terms of like there are like what they need out of the world in their stories are interesting, and and they all have a different perspective on you and life, and you know in an what I what I think is kind of cool about creating a world like this is that you have to be okay with having content that exists. You're not forced to play. And you have to embrace that you have to because that. That is what makes it joyful when you go on your own ambition to go through it. It's not that you were told to go. Do it was in the Golden Path? And there were versions of the game earlier that a lot of these characters stories were more interconnected to Go Path. Through play, testing and feedback in her own kind of iteration process. We ended up where they are. Which I think is the right spot. which is you introduce them and then? Over your curiosity, we can push them push. You can go enjoy them your own Yossi, and there. Some of them are five or six missions long. And I think that's the right model, but it takes some iteration to get to that that that's spot for us. Even having late in the game the I think it's two missions for Eureka that pop up after you've revisited home. Just was such a such a Gut Punch. In the midst of as Jin, story is starting to come, full circle meant to have this exploration both more into him, but also into her life It's it was like as you were saying I, it felt so much more rewarding because I, saw it out that story within the. Yeah I think that that's A. It's not an easy philosophy to hold you now. as a director or as a contributor designer artist, because it means that somebody is going to get a bunch of people, not GonNa, play your mission bench people are not going to see your artwork, and and it's really hard to like talk about that because I want everyone to who worked on this game at Sakkara Punch to just like the super proud of it and love every moment that they cred tributed, too, but that's one where it's like. Yeah, but your thing is optional, and I can really bad, but it. In these cases it is for the for a greater feeling that. The people that will engage with it will probably tear out will probably love or be maybe even their favor mission of the game, even not the golden path I gave might be their favorite moment in the game nest. Because you, you let them engage it at their own will in. That's A. that's a hard philosophy to to. kind of stomach, but I think it's I. think it's a really healthy one for the type of game that ghost is. It absolutely plays into who I I think. My favorite thing about the game. Is that Me In the act of playing the game, so has to the game halfway in a presents all of these options, but I have to go exploring too, and I feel encouraged and want to explore and of my favorite times playing have just been putting a dot on the map letting the wind guy. A thousand kilometers, and if I if something stops me, stop if it doesn't I just keep going until something else. Interest me awesome. It's a calming experience which I don't often say I think about games at the moment. That's exactly how I played, too I would just put a marker somewhere completely random very far from me and just go there and see what I ran into along the what along the way with stories popped up which new characters I would meet, that would show me points of interest and stuff like that. and I think that that loop was really smart in terms of having sort of random gangs of bad guys. Patrolling the land and you'd run into them, and they'd have somebody kidnapped, and you'd rescue that person and that person would tell you another place to go. It felt like you're constantly pulling on these little threads. and I loved that so much was did that did that all take awhile to come together? Like outside of the wind is sort of the way the. The optional stuff and the sort of like randomize character you know excursions and stuff all interconnect. How how was it bringing all that stuff together to create the flow that you guys ended up with? The I I you both sound like you've played it exactly the way that I would recommend somebody to play, which is like hey, you know every now and then just throw down and go that direction and see what you find, and and if you don't find some great than go to your Golden, Pastora that's awesome, but try it, and because it's. In this is true for even when we're doing play testing that we did find that that was some of the ways that people would enjoy the game the most which is awesome. will you're talking about that? Like the ecosystem imbalance of people who tell you where stuff is in? How many patrols are there that stuff I'll tell you? We tweak that probably. Maybe until weeks before gold I think. Exactly the number on no top ahead, but is very late. We tweak those numbers because. because the sense of owning the curiosity, and like not having everything told you. was so important to the global feeling of enjoying just like exploring throughout the world, and as soon as you're told, were too much. Stuff is or too many things around your map. It becomes a different problem like you're kind of you either you either go into. Let's just go through the checklist which. Is Fine I think if you found them on your own but can be exhausting for some people because they're like Oh God. There's a ton of stuff to do, or it's kind of a turn off because you already know what it is, and you don't think of anything else over there, but they're actually might be if you if you actually went look, so we actually ramped down the people that the amount of people that would tell you where things were quite a bit. It used to be far more. part of the emergent processes I've almost everybody who talked to tell you. Something is, and it would put a thing on your map and We found that to be Super Smart System, and I'm so glad that we have it, but we put it in a very specific way in a very specific amount of things on the map total. Total that it would ever tell you about so that you still had your cool moment of like i. don't see anything over here on this. I'm going to head that way and finds things along the way now balance. It's really it's really tricky. Because again it goes up to that thing. I was talking about early. Enough loss of being okay with things being skipped and. That if you don't want to be so much that you don't have any information, that would be bad too right so it it is takes time to to work out, but the team did that. No, no a healthy fund way but I think even when you like clear. Mongol, Camp and Clears up a little bit. You still get a question mark. It's not even like yours, a hotel or something like that. And it's sort of it to me. It fell It felt like A. SORT, of natural to the universe that you guys were setting your game in this is this is like a long time ago. There is those no yelp. There's no google. So it seemed natural that you'd find a random person on the street and be like Oh. Thank you so much. There's this awesome restaurants. You should go check it out. Right I really doug. That I played a ton of the game in Kerr. Asala Mode Oh cool and that was. It was really it was really difficult for me. 'cause you made such beautiful game central? And I think it's I think it's. Beautiful in a different way in Curacao mode. But there was just something so special about about like heading into conflict or a story be or coming into a new environment. or it's all black and white, and there's that film green crackling, and a I read that you guys even did some stuff with the music to make it feel almost like it was coming through old speakers or something like that. Yeah, how how how how did how did you develop that? I I know. That's like obviously. It's something that you're studios. Really proud of especially since you've got endorsement from the family. It was a that was A. That was a I. I probably will put that in my top list of my entire career as like being apart process because. I mean it's just. It's just why just kind of a wild thing that you don't go into making video games because you expect to go through that process one day, yeah. which is probably why it's cool is that it's different. You know, but. The. We knew that we WANNA. Do Black and white mode I mean I think i. I don't remember when we first talked about it, but it was definitely really early Redo black and white vote, but again it got kind of pushed towards the end of the project, and then once things started to. You know you can sit in the world and you could be like. Oh, my goddess stunning! It's really a beautiful I feel I. Do feel like I'm. There's moments of this I feel like movie. It's coming. It's coming together. And, then we're like okay well. We definitely have that mode. Let's are planning for it. And an I got version of it in that was a very early version of it with a sliding team and Like what do we call this thing? and You Owe Samurai cinema or classic. Why can Wyatt our traditional La just things? You know cool cool names. And member WHO's I may was Brian Studio head. I don't remember somebody was like. When we see if we can call it, Chris Allen Mode. And I thought that was brilliant and I was like. Yes, can we? What was that process so I reached out to. One of the people that I think he deserves a special shout at his name as a relay Katami. He's on our Japanese producer. He's a helped us since the very almost since the very beginning, and he helps coordinate all of our feedback through Japan, and said Hey, you hey, who's now a dear friend of mine. I was like. Is this possible. Could you look this up? And he and the Japanese team reached out to their to their state across our state and worked out You know. They wanted to see video so I. Put together a video, and then I redid it like three times because enough. People on time video, but I was like Austin. Even Brian Our leauge rendering Guy Jasmine. He was not good. No. Though I kinda Redid it a couple of times and then eventually Is this. Is it I? I looked at so many movies measured the black and white. You know in our game. You know as you both played it. Daytime Times. There's indoor's whether there's rain. There's fog and so like you have to look at movies that have all of these things you can't just be like. Here's a movie. Here's a sample. It's the black. Man Like you gotTa. Look at all these because they exist in our game and it's a filter that'd be going over all of these and so I finally got to the point where I was, I had good black levels. White levels has cool noise. We sent them a video and and It took a little bit of time back and forth, but eventually we're like asses cooling reach an agreement. They were cool with it so. Yeah it was a it was a coup processing showed up. Is Mode teams all shit? It's called. Is it was pretty cool goal process. It has a dream come true. It's so awesome on a historical level. Because obviously you're seeing the game through its you know from the reveal trailer to now there's clearly a love and Joe Majd to the cinema and the storytelling that come in the John Mara, before it, and so to have that encapsulated as a mood that you can jump into starting to such a great I. Think like touchtone full circle thing as a fan of genres well. Also I mean the. The audio! From from like A. A gigantic Blue Tang Fan. It's it sounded like like RISI's sampling. VHS, tapes of sword slashes, and like there were moments. Paint that game and I was like I expect like method man rapid right now because. If anyone was intended, but that sort of got me on a very very like neural level I was like Oh my God like this is. This is quietly the best. Wu Tang game ever made since. The fighting gave. The quote somewhere I feel. That's. But. Our audio director Brad he that's all him he was like. I have an idea that guy's a wizard, so that usually meant something cool and he. It was like we have this special thing that we developed internally at Sony that replicates old processes from like you know fifty sixty s something like that radios and TV's and and And and he he kind of took that filtered it and figured out the right 'cause he was like. If you do too much over, you know, we wanted people to play lengthy amount of times and if they wanted to the Chrysanthemum. View too much, and it becomes incredibly fatiguing. Like, not watching move hours possibly thirty hours. You know so. You got a nice balance between that and something that you can you know Listen to over and over again? I- legitimated Curacao Mode for Poly Twenty five thirty hours and I think that I like maybe fifty sixty into the game. So how yeah! That's incredible. Yeah, along along with that and to me. It was surreal to play an open world game almost entirely in black and white. That was just I've never done anything like that before and. It was such a cool. It was such a cool experience. One of the challenges with eggs I would add is like since it's black and white. There's there's missions that use color as guiding, and so there are. There are a few missions of. It really struggles with, but for the most part we redesigned icons on the map so that it would work with answer, so you're not just looking at two icons ones. This color ones that color and we just changed the icon Lopate, but but yeah it, it's it's generally speaking. You can play through most of the game with it, which is just crazy. Yeah I think there was one mission where they're like find. The purple flowers was like Oh! I was to right back on, so that was good. Leads to so many great visual moments, and as you were saying I know we're running short on time I. don't want believe the too much, but I, genuinely really loved, and as pointing to earlier the the soundtrack and the way both game uses it. It comes in from quiet to loud, but also how the score changes both from the combat setting to the open world setting you know. Moments I would say not settings, but. That Jackson position as well as even on the side, the remixes that were coming out sort of in the lead up to the Games launch. There's so much great musicality and artistry. Bear that I think really. Elevate, so much of what's going on there on visual rebel to a works so well in tandem. You know there is no single discipline that contributes more to the game. The music like a known this case we have to composers, a team of people that obviously help implemented like their artistry is like. White just level things up so much like a scene without music in a scene with music. There's a world of difference in generally speaking I know it's not one contributor. There's quite a few people that make it happen. Processing and implementation, but it's insane. What music can do in for this game? It's it's. It's one of the best parts of the Game I. Think is the the the artistry behind the music in the soulful fullness in is is really I listened to it a lot. I love and then we tokens the glitch mob. Which is just? RIDICULOUSLY COOL! Yeah, it's an awesome combination i. do think as you were saying. It elevates so many great moments, but really. A drills home like the emotional undercurrent of everything that's going on in the game. Unfortunately. We're pretty much out of time. I think Brandon I could keep talking there so much. We love and really enjoyed about the experience and are continuing to enjoy. Time in this world, so Jason Thank you so much for taking time. We really appreciate it. SUPERFUND and thank thank you to your studio for. bookending this entire console generation with my favorite games. I I don't know if that was ever the plan, but the way that

Twitter Will Be Fun Today - The College Kids Who Hacked Into Twitter

"Today's guests. His Hip Awan CEO of Afani. Secure and private cell phone service locum his Heeb. Thank you Laura for home. You'll show. You were one of the investigators in touch with the young people who hacked twitter last week and gain control of prominent accounts, including those of Joe. Biden Obama Elon Musk and others as well as those of crypt companies like coin, base and finance, and when they had control those accounts, they were soliciting bitcoin from twitter users. How did you get in touch with the hackers? So Laura be in like. four-time itself, so then after I was so pissed off that angry that I said I need to solve this problem, and so I've entered into a form that relates how they have those accounts holiday getting pretty much all the ring of how they operate so. When you say that they had had your twitter account, nor they have my Sim Sark four times. Okay, and when you say Sim, swaps just described that in case, listeners does up. Does improper pretty much. What happened is like someone will take the form so the underground market like think about Ebay, but like I knew democracy with information. So you said your name, your information social security number your call logs your life, your life, location or anything on you. If I say hey, I need to find out for Laura Shane telephone number, and they'll give me telephone number will give me a call loss to give you. An everything comes through telephone numbers of numbers unique, and then if I say. Say Hey. I need to take the phone number 'cause I need so they will just prophet abuse him that I control, and I need to pay them few hundred dollars now. Your formula not work anymore because I had control of Sim card, so then I use that telephone number to get into a g mail, facebook and twitter, so if you go on twitter, new likely rescinded to email our number. If it's telephone number you've got. Someone's adopted very common technique deployed across US for a long time. So. The twitter hack twitter said that their employees had been socially engineered, and that's how these hackers gained control the systems. Are you saying that? Some twitter employees have their account. Sim swapped like how how does that you or Simspon tried? These people relate to the twitter Hack Greg? You wanted to ask me like how to get in touch with them so I'm trying to understand. You, that of analysis himself, so started going into the industry into this form than trying to see how they operate and to Dodd funny, so which will provide the made acadia that probably that cannot be Simpson's. That's what we did an offer that. VINCI START GETTING customers. Have you would actually getting a lot of attempts to do so? You would getting Dempsey pretty much every week that someone prior to himself or customer, trying to like hack into our system and mend the failed. I got in contact David Mayhew call, they would email method you and they will do all kinds of attacks. You know they'll try to let pen to pen tests. The everything did and obviously in one of the cases restocked immunity stopping messing around it right I know what you're up to. And after I got in touch with him to signal and author that the lake. Not I won't say that become a friend, but I told them why you're doing this. Thank you know you should not do this multiple hackers and they said okay. If you don't have anything to do pretty much, does it okay? Why don't you get a job? He said job, and then they start feeding the all information to proved at. Legit than a lot of information and how I was getting information from a lot of talk of the vote. And when it all this happened that you got in touch with him and had it happened late four five months ago. Okay They were diverging to me not just for this hot, but for other purposes to ride like a kid discount. Lot of databases beach everyday, so they wanted to see that a hey. If I'm interesting in the database, just wanted to work pretty much. is not money. It's also about ego that they wanNA prove something that they would do something so. So Mike Context for not hacking, but they'll be into the songs that they had access to. That follows A. Up I didn't want to. Excessive today were passing me. Hey, today. This is for sale to do sports on tomorrow. This person's so on the deal stood attack. I got a message that will be fun today, and when this message I thought he'd be like a distributor barks. Like scam scams, and but after why? That's all the kind. We got attacked ten. Finance Accounting Noble at depth one time. I taught that it's just a third party API like you know you have like you know where your schedule. The in everything I thought that may be compromised, and that's how they got author. Riley said No. We have everything. A screen chart I tweeted screen shot, and after that is blue. Well and so, who are these people? who were the people involved in the actual twitter hack? The difficult to identity like frankly I don't know I can speculate, but obviously because someone security and privacy I don't want to speculate but I can tell you wanting like college. Kids are maybe like someone between eight, eighty, twenty, one, twenty, two, and they are video gamers. They'd metaphor armed, and they found fascinating for them. Dislike a game like you go into video game on you killing you do stuff for them. It's like that. They, probably living in some way or radio patterns right now in basement. Who does not even know anything? and. They just do it for fun. Obviously, money's there, too, but most of fun for them is just a today. And so originally. The way you got in touch with them was they were targeting these different cell phone accounts, and what does motivation and taking over the different cell phone accounts so for account you can actually to when people take account, they can actually destroy you financially emotionally ended up recently, though by financial I can say they can get into your county bank accounts ticket by Tiptoe through that they can buy a lot of levels of securities financially they can do. obviously going to facebook in an email to, and then they donor all information from your facebook, and then they start blackmailing you that. Hey, likely when a lot you have done this like you know you have this. And you have to pay me this information out there and a lot of people would have to pay them the money because they don't pay the money. They looted operation right so and then third party. They just become Parson Mike is the word processing me. blender used to take my county new. They cannot get anything, but they wanted to talk to me. Just fun for them like people. Some people are sick. Like how did they pick you out of all the different people that they could torture also the league, if not just me like everyday hundreds of people to get them soft, though I'm just one of them on average, every second medical become victim of since up, not himself but cybercrimes so. But I had the impression that this was primarily targeting crypto currency people, but you're saying it's any bundled nor I think eighty percent of people who was himself to an entrepreneur L.! And the new in the cases of those people is it like personal vendettas that they're trying to? You can make more money by a hacking Lord cell than anything else you know. is one thing but Lloyd is like one number one target Loyd and has professionals league doctor medical doctor then. In Lord other number one targets in suffers, and what is the motivation for targeting lawyers Don. Money don't happen. How do they monetize that Yeah, so I tell you doctors, basically busy less tech, savvy and rich. It's that easy to find out any doctor information. You can find out who the best doctor in the city and you consume. Stop Him. And once you get into that account, you can transfer money between accounts who can be that people have been? Going into the count, Simpson calling the bank making via transfer, and then just checking accounts. That's pretty common. For for doctors to clinics have a lot of money. If you'RE GONNA clinic, instead he did even like five hundred hundred million dollar distorted the front because Alaska. Election for them. Okay, so let's go back to the twitter hack. They were some names that were identified of people who are involved these names. In The New York Times article that quoted you as a source one was kirk. There were some other people ll and ever so anxious. Who were these people? And how did they know each other? So they don't. Know the Best Birdie. They just hang out on rooms like chatting channels lake similar people on developed talked with you. The pirates channels. We had people a go if they WANNA have information to the document industry for finding information. If I want someone associated Gordon dissipates on one. Don't get call for these people trade information. And you asked about like a leg. Imagine your lawyer and you are fighting for my open kiss. We begin go to the website by that long since he will. They are who they're talking to the day can. Make some delays on them. That's one thing but other than that. These people are just a game as they would play like you know different video games and kick the die, who was basically a source of the rate industry rock says they'll be extra agents, and they are in room for longtime and David. Obviously you want you want something you don't trust the new guy. The new guy who is basically the main culprit punching the entity because multiple reasons, but the main guidance, the just which had A. Reputation. If you say you want a username of Laura at Laura, Shannon inactive. You may not trust kick, so you can do this. Middle Diane Tell Them Hey, can you hold the money for because you have a good relation? Because like Ebid forums generally have a petition systems. You know so then you ve into this guy like you know every inch it He went to care. Concur depended he the credit employees but I. Don't think he was employees. And, then he gave him the concert start building. So this is just a middleman. He was just broken deals. You tell them what you want. He was just keep his car and transfer the money. The is completed that fall. And so so kirk was was saying that he was a twitter employees, but as you said, you don't think that he was, and he was essentially selling valuable twitter accounts, and if people didn't trust, Kirk, they would use ever so anxious as their middleman to get the different twitter handles that they wanted. Is that what happened? That's correct. Good Gig, only unharmed on in July of. July it was very recently. that. He actually came so obviously not trust someone admit. That soon. July seventh in the New York Times article are. Limited okay, but all right so but ever so anxious. How to longer reputation and. And that was who people are transacting with. And so then. How did BITCOIN come into this? All. On these things happen through Bitcoins, so the way it started was they were selling. This twitter handles four bitcoin and then later. How did the scam change? So I. Personally is what I personally think. That kid was in touch with the employees who was giving these accounts. For a few thousand dollars. And then. Either bribed him. Architects. Social Engineering Him. Legs because like hey can do. This is my. This is purely my speculation that you're working for so long. He warned the trust. Any may have said Hey, can you log in forbid I wanNA see how it looks like something that he made it something so the guy is pasta on. Hey, just do it, but don't do anything crazy. You Know Butt kicked. Decide Okay, man I can just go on or can also go online with I can do it I can. Can also go on like you know. All those accounts crazy. That's what I okay, but you're just speculating. You don't have any proof that or or do you know what? I don't have any proof of that I don't approve. Have critic probably do it? And Kirk? Is probably a guy called coup, which is on a farm for a long time, so he speculated that he someone that was in the industry for wide, but not. Approved that. Kicked it, but from all the action than everything it all points to cook. Irene so in a moment we're gonNA. Talk a little bit more about what happened.

Back to my conversation with his Heeb Awan. So, we don't know exactly how. Kirk got into twitter's internal systems. However Once. He or she did then what'd he do or or she do with their power? So. Kirk than they went to buy I think. Start with by notes I'm coin base. And the see your finance and he made it account Egypt first of all. What did it was did with other? Account. Okay, which means when you log in, it asks you to do a second type of security, which is hopefully. If you're in the crypto space, you have used something like Hugo, authenticate or key, and you're not using text message based second factor authentication. Where they sent a code your phone because otherwise if he gets swaps than than having no. Buyer so. Removed that and then keep going good thing. They added wall a secondary second. You know Autodata so now. I'll give example like you have my username seep, so they moved to a FE, and they're also removed. Jane, Email. And then they. Did possible reset. So the new email guard, the chain deposited garden the account. and. tweeted whatever they wanted. Well, and what were they tweeting? So, they were tweeting that you know. About Co. Ed Nineteen I believe like you know because of Covid, we like helping people. I don't remember the wording. Health Has Something and they said Back. And this is video any comments in YouTube. Actually they were so good that frankly sometime I get like you know Oh my God like the able to make it like a secondary thing. That's real you know and like, but this happens pretty commonly, and and it's happening for almost two years now i. It, really is the kind of thing where people think it's real I honestly. Had created a question for you, which is who are the people who are savvy enough to own bitcoin and know how to send it, but not savvy enough to spot. What to me seems like an obvious scam. Actually went on the Internet and are tweeted out this thing same thing I said like who are those people who can have sophisticated enough to buy Bitcoin, but knowledge to. Send. Bitcoin but I think leap Dick's everything. Like I agree people think okay. Let's give it a chance. You know it's like a lottery ticket. You know people may be, but they think what if this is true and other than that. If you like an must happening there, actually flaunted, be efforts on twitter. All the time with people are donating money on twitter, but they don't ask for anything they say hey, can you give me your Alfred Egland who this every day, so he will dollars to off fifty dollars for every person everyday. You'll say. Retreat this. I'll give you this money. So this happens right now and obviously As hit audible, read like you know when viewed come in people, people forget everything that you know. We have so many Ponzi scheme like so many scattered that happened that exist today could if I come to unity Laura investment scheme, which is a pretty good you know. He hit all the MACHIDA. But it only gives you five percent. You may not listen to that. Say Hey, Lord the Child who may tennis money tomorrow. You may skip everything. Cocaine is thousand and ten dollars tomorrow. Okay I'll take the risk from doing that. Hopefully I'm sure my listeners are savvy enough to know if it sounds too good to be true. But people do that I. Think I have estimated that around like maybe I. Just in this journal given us cam like. He put a lot of tens of millions of dollars and well not last week, but no, not over time overtime. Yeah, yeah, we'll be sending money, so there are enough food. I guess yeah over I mean for last week. The hackers did net about a little over thirteen bitcoin, which was about one hundred twenty thousand dollars, although analysts said that about twenty, thousand of it seems to have come from a suspicious address that they actually think controlled by the hackers to kind of make it look like this was legit and people were actually sending money. But then also by the way they could have netted more. However, Cuevas said that it did prevent more than one thousand customers from sending about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars worth of Bitcoin to the twitter hackers so oriented, so let's talk a little bit also about just what happened in twitter which was? Twitter blog posts. Hackers a targeted. Thirty accounts for forty five of those they reset the password and sent tweets from those accounts for eight of them. They actually downloaded that counts data, and then for thirty sixty legitimate direct message inbox, including one elected official from the Netherlands, and it was who. What do you think they could do with such information? I think it's A. Black, man that I've been talking to you about what happened with sin sopping. Let's think about it if you have first all that fool Phoolan that why didn't put? It wasn't like planned. I don't believe it was just like in the move in the heat of happened. BANDAIDS slaves. They clearly guy who just got drunken pretty might do everything but I think if you have access to like anyone, social media, proper social media like I have been I've received. Messages. And I but I don't believe that I think we have forged around. Believe the electoral, so, but if you have someone should media that maybe confidential information that can be misused by Stacey when leg if you do about it on dedic messages, a you know that's not confident that even with the journalist visceral broads. You know so I. Don't know who the information was. What fast, but that's video very very concerning and I believe this may happen on facebook or other social media from his. Because to same. Attack Factor. Yeah I definitely think that this is. One of those cases where it makes you want to just use encrypted social messaging APPS. Such as like signal or something, maybe what's up? So, let's just also talk a little bit about what we said before about how the hackers were able to remove two factor authentication on these accounts. Well, actually what they did I was. They changed the email address. And then the chain Laras Oh, actually bid on a there was A. There was an email. There was a blog post by somebody who had the at six twitter account, and they said they believed that the hackers change the address, but that when that happened, it did not send a notification to the original email address, but not I don't know if this person was surmising, you know six hundred interest in history, those belong to a hacker. Their the community of Hackers Gobi Twenty six hundred. That's like a court for hackers right. Not a quarterback, just like community for hackers and you were the hacker who ended up homeless anywhere. They will do attack into I think he would to. And he went into multiple you as homeless, but he was a hacker. And oxygen community belong to sixty name. Is this secretly off? I believe his name. And, but yes, but I think the first drift was removed and then. moved. To the letter. Control of it now thought it was the reverse, but either way. In Like for any of us who are in the crypto space who have been? Keeping up with our security and using things like Google. or UB and avoiding. Text message based to a or or any kind of to a based on our phone number. What? Can we take away from this like? Is there any advice that you have for Crypto? People on how they can protect themselves if the services that we use have loopholes like this. Let's not that'll be biased in obviously you know. Will. Finding here, but that's what we do, right. We work, but a lot. Actually I am surprised at how many a compromise them security argue out stocking some customer yesterday and they do You know an extra seat is probably the most I can tell you I know. We are making like a faces, but at same part exit. She's most prominent used offer manager for probably ninety ninety nine percent of the word. What would you recommend instead? Use a password manager, anything manager pretty much everything in the top five six. It stood, you know. Don't cheat on family plan. out on like those like a caveman. This company go with a better company. Even if you don't go the final leg, that's fine at least hell better company like Dourthouse I'm plan because no fan mace. You make you very vulnerable to now you're putting your own life on risk, but everyone who is in the time is. You know and the third party. Don't give out your telephone. Number molasses everywhere. You know like. Don't go to like you. Know have different email address if you want to. And you let you. At Google. Authentic get off your. There's something at one time I have statistics, said ninety five percent of people who are like major changes. Do not have to a fait. Sms I'm talking more to a and I think ninety nine percent of those are what you estimates to say. The people who've been additives Everyday I have started I deal with at least two or three people who get up everyday and came and we had some of the to affair, and I can get into that lot of people into the spark that they were not believe enough not to change it. please. Don't please don't be those people, but I can tell you like I've spent people and I said do this. Man How much time did it like five minutes six league. Logistics you Donald and APP, you know. have to familiar face. You know if you are very cautious, taken for a number, but I can tell you that Khomeini would make this mistake. Ordering will end and it you know, and in the end I did lose industry learn. That's was part. There was still use the same SMS to a fait. The dating did not happen to them. Again happened again. Because if it happens to once, you become more, you know your motorcycle getting out again. If they have found something and something, they just do for fun, and and you know what I because obviously I'm. Biased in a way that the. Customer. Time I've been a victim four times a feed Logar they can. What would you do? Please please please setup. SMS elected more music episodes into gear and please get family plan these I. Know You're saving their ten twenty dollars per months, but in the end you know if you call it a, it's like insurance. You can live without insurance to. But like you know. The one day you need insurance when you need it.

"Those built be active documents to help you get the most out of your financial life is critical and what about for a married couple making sure that both spouses are actively engaged in all interactions with financial planner. So we are all very busy. We divide and conquer and we have to respect that. But what the mistake is is we aren't inclusive. So if the man or the woman are taking one's got the investment plan in one has the daily financial household management. We have to talk to each other to make sure the right and left hand know what they're doing when we get disconnected. And and don't have a sense of are we on track for our financial security your personal definition of financial security, which may be different than your spouse's. That disconnect can then create some distrust, not only in your relationship, but with the financial advisory team, you're working with. It's okay to have different motivations in goals. But you have the middle ground, and you have to talk to each other even unpleasant things have to come forward in the process. You know, it's really interesting. I think that that that definition is different ninety five percent of the time the financial security for the husband is different than what financial security is for the wife. And so what it reminds me of is let's say that a couple wants to build. A new house and they're going to build it from scratch. Well, obviously, you don't just go by and take a snapshot of a house from your phone or smartphone, or whatever and take that picture over to Home Depot and say, hey, this is the house I want give me the materials that I need to buy. No, you've got to start out with an architect. And right now, what couple would allow only one person to go speak to that architect and tell them what they want the house to look like because I'm going to guarantee you that there's things in the house that the husband wants that are totally different than things in the house that the wife wants, and there's some of the things that the wife wants the husband doesn't even care about and the husband wants to wipe doesn't care about. But they have to come together talk about there's going to be compromised because they're both going to live there when you're talking to a financial planner. There's things that each of you want that are different than the other. And if you don't both voice those things, and they're not listened to from the financial planning perspective. And you don't talk about those in reached the common ground. Then you're never going to be able to have that one ideal financial life that you really want that to me is what the heart of financial planning. Is all about it is understanding just like an architect needs understand what you want to build the financial planner needs to understand what is your financial life..

Like a normal relationship with food would never consider eating because you're hungry, scary. But like the fact that we've been on a diet for so long.
