Victoria takes a deep breath and opens up!
"I'm health reported Teigen Tyler Physician and Journalists Dr Norman Swan on this really important for all pride. Victorians. Chief see the twenty seventh of October. Yes. Finally yesterday in Victoria. The Prima Donna Andrews announced the revised roadmap towards bacteria covid normal and it was a real relief for Victorians and the rest of the nation Norman what sort of the highlights of what Dan Andrews said yesterday because it's the comprehensiveness of the opening up, there is no daily dallying now retail hospitality getting back to work. Yes. There are restrictions on indoor numbers and outdoor numbers. But if you live in New South Wales, you're used to that and that will take a while to loosen up but everything just gets going and later on today the numbers in households will become clearer because that is a high risk environment. But if recycle is anything to go by, you won't really notice it too much and it will loosen up with time zones. There aren't any significant outbreaks. Milestone in starting. To have zero cases and the last time, the state had zero cases when on the ninth of June one hundred and forty days ago. So obviously, there's still probably GONNA be filtering through in the next few days but really, really hot. The. Really hot work that they've been doing paying off you know Sommese. Still be virus in Victoria and you will see the odd cluster popping up as indeed they do new South Wales, but eventually, it will get down to almost zero spread. So it's it's fantastic news. But the premiums, right it's constant vigilance is what's required covered normal does not be normal covered normal means social distancing means not getting together to large numbers too. Early it needs ring really careful at home in means continuing to wear masks outside so. Lucky. That they've got mandated masks. New South doesn't yet. You know hair salons can do services when the clients wearing face covering corona cast listeners will remember that we covered the story in a few weeks ago a few months ago I can't remember now but the flat tackle that's right. The in united. States swear to positive here salon workers did not pass the virus onto their clients by wearing masks insisting that their clients wear masks. So it's really important. So these things will protect US moving forward. One of the things that really stood out to me went any Landrus is talking about what the new normal looks like is how much the rest of the country can learn from this because in places that aren't. Victoria and you South Wales. It's been quite a long time since it's been a lot of virus circulating in the community that we know about at least and I know from my own experience living in Queensland that I think there's a lot of complacency that's crept in and it's probably a good time to just refocusing guy this isn't normal life. We still got a kate how God's up try and it could come in to come in on a ship from overseas. You've already seen problems in western. Australia nobody is particularly safe the risk of spread by open borders and I was extremely low, but it does mean we've all got to be careful moving forward. At some point, international borders are going to have to open up we're going to have to learn what covered normal actually means now new South Wales are ready to move in. You saw the football matches you. It doesn't feel to abnormals in in in in New South Wales, and that's the real feeling in Victoria but I think those two states are better prepared for this. Than the other states and we've got to open up the borders and people just will have to be more careful definitely in Australia where in a much better position than other parts of the world where covered normally is no in knee normal live, and in the states, this disease control have expanded their definition of what a close contact means in terms of someone's ability. To spread the virus if they had this definition by the way, these definitions are fairly arbitrary based on evidence. That's not necessarily very solid. So they had a similar a criterion to us which right at the beginning of the pandemic was sh- you might remember which is he going to be within a couple of meters of somebody for fifteen minutes to have a significant. Chance of passing this on and what we know now is the aerosol spread the lows that's be contravened indoor environments but no the redefined were close contact is if you just think about that as the means of spread and there's no question that a lot of spread is through contact and what they've found is that in fact, you can be in close contact with somebody. Over a twenty, four hour period repeatedly. So it's not just a fifteen minute window. It's actually multiple occasions and it comes from correctional facilities where they've shown that tired the infection was probably cumulative infection over a period of time. So it's no longer fifteen minutes. It's still two meters in the case of the United States, but it can be over twenty four hour period not just one fifteen minute window.

Dr. Robert Brooks Discusses The Power of Resilience and Bouncing Back More Easily
"Thank you so much for being with us on UNTANGLED. Today. Beyond the show. So I want to start with this very broad question because we're gonNA, talk today about resilience, which is such a huge topic in such an important one and I would like for you to define resilience for us. Is An excellent question because different people have different definitions. The definition I basically use is that resilience implies the capacity to bounce back from adversity. Every one of us is going to experience some challenges some much greater than others, but million people problems as things to be overcome rather than be overwhelmed by they see problems things to be solved, and thus they don't feel paralyzed when adversities arises, but rather they tell themselves what are some strategies I can use to deal with this particular versity? All of us. Face, certain challenges, and one of the things that you question rings up this, we sometimes don't know when it may arise, and that's why I believe that preparing ourselves to be resilient. Have a resilient outlook really helps us in terms of preparing us for the many different situations challenges that may arise in our lives. What is that inner strength that propel some people to overcome obstacles and adversity? Given the research con temperament from birth. Some children already have a greater capacity to deal with adversity than others and that doesn't mean you can't learn to deal with adversity put a child's temperament how easy they are whether or not they quickly get frightened or how they start out already could be a certain predisposition for being either less or more resilient, but I wouldn't want anyone listening to this saying. You mean. Set in stone. By the time, we're two years old now, but certainly this the old nature nurture and you really can't separate them. So certainly, our inborn temperament plays. and. Then our life experiences some children grow up in homes where they will have very tomatoes to observe people's solving problems people dealing with conflict while I know from my clinical practice, there are those who basically have never really had models. With, people always are very stressed out with people do not know how to deal with conflict. So certainly, our born temperament at life experiences will play a role. One question I often get is, was it ever too late? Can people become more resilient and I would never have written a book I didn't feel at any age. There are certain things that we can do to help us to develop a greater capacity for it's. My stance has been to look at what are the characteristics of resilient people I started asking. Zillion child or adult see the world differently themselves differently from others and can we incorporate this into our schools in trial pair day an entire own lives by cannot tell you how many parents and teachers and other caregivers basically said to me. Can you help Chalabi resilient if you're not Brazilian and the quick answer is it's more. So, in terms of your question I, do a lot of workshops. Helping kids being resilient when I share with people are what are some of the characteristics of say resilient kids and can we somehow develop strategies to this just to give you one example which is one of my favorites? Years, ago. I was writing a book about school climate and I asked about fifteen hundred adults to fill out an anonymous questionnaire and one of the questions. Wise of all the memories you have school. What is one of your favorite memories at something adult said or did that boosted your dignity and your motivation? One of the most frequent responses was he will recall when they were asked to help out I. Got Answers like I. Remember when a teacher asked me to pass out the milken straws I remember not dress me to tutor young child and I remember the time saying to myself. That's one of the best memories of school. Now know that there's a whole body of research that shows senior citizens who are actively involved in helping others humidity control for other things sleep longer lives and are less stress. We now know that when kids are invited to help other sayings in schools, they're less likely to be bullied. So to drop out. So the past couple of weeks a couple of workshops for educators and one of the things I say kids to be more resilient. Asked. This question does every child in the school every student feel that he or she is making a positive difference in school because that's what brings purpose and meaning. As I said before resilient people see problems this things to be solved rather than overwhelmed boy. So I often pose the question. What do you need to have that belief? One thing is in early age is help them to make decisions so that they started to become good problem solvers with adults. I will often say in my workshops or when I'm dunes therapy have any of you ever face a problem where I thought is I don't even know where to. Start and everyone handles by said Majid this almost every problem you face to felt that way. So situation like that people become over well, they're not going to be resilient at all they become more stress. So with my adult patients, I'll say, so we have to figure out how you can step back and think of different options and different ways of solving things I. Don't WanNa be over-simplistic as I say it is. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed we fail to look at some possible options will be helpful with teachers parents I say, if problems arise in a classroom or home, let's more more s kids how they might sell them. Approach is really been to look at the characteristics of Brazilian children are adults, and then how can you apply these in your own life?

Hacking Our Way to Innovation with Rebecca Love, RN, MSN
"So here. The woman we really love to dig into wine. Nurses decided on that sealed in particular. So what made you want to be nurse so nursing was a second career choice for me? I had gone for Undergrad in a degree in international relations and a minor in Spanish and I thought that I was going to be a lawyer to be honest and I was working on a presidential campaign at the time when healthcare was a big issue. I remember being these rallies and everybody was talking about healthcare and there were no nurses in the audience or a lot of Ernie's or a lot of lobbyists or a whole bunch of people that know nurses and I don't know about you Daniel but my mom's nurse. Do you have any family members who are nurses in your family? My Grandmother was okay and so that was my piddle movement. My mom came out and we went to dinner and she said we really think you should be a nurse and I remember her. It was an interesting time the politics going on and I remember thinking you know what? How can you be a member of? How can you speak to the choir if you're not a member of it and if everybody's talking about healthcare but nobody a nurse here? How do we really know what needs to change? And what the problem. Yeah and that was where my life turns recognizing that to really impact change in healthcare. I probably had join healthcare Do that and that's where my journey began. That's amazing it's topic. I've talked to a couple of friends about we've talked about on here to how there isn't representation in Congress in government of nurses like what we're actually going through what we face on a daily basis. I think that's fascinating at that. Made you change your career path. That's amazing well. It's funny that you say that because the statement that made me change my career path was at my I want you know. I said I wanted to be a lawyer and my mom said to me she said you know there's plenty of strong lawyers out there in the world and she said but I can tell you is being a nurse. There's not enough strong nurses out there. I need more strong nurses on there to change. What nursing looks like to the world and and you to become a nurse and at that time? I didn't know what that meant. I I remember. It felt really importance. But it's now ten fifteen years later that I look back and I recognize those words shaped everything that I've done in nursing every step of the way and I know your own story about how hard times it was for you to be a nurse and how it's challenges we faced how you didn't always feel like you fit in are you also didn't feel like you had a voice and that was hard for me and I'm and how to learn how to navigate. What sometimes feels like a very disempowered profession to become more voicemail and more recognized but more importantly that necessarily placated she but really just given a seat at the table is. Hey you got this. You know what you're talking about and I respect your opinion as much as I respect. Everybody else is around the table. Not so much. Hey I'm just giving it placeholder for a nurse to have at the table. It's really sit there and say we want them here. Because we we get that you guys have value add. That's been really interesting place to come from and I don't know you know in your own personal With your conversation if you guys have felt the same kind of challenges at times yes One hundred percent. And that's something that I think just Added onto years of being like repressed as a nurse that led to ultimately me burning out at the bedside. And that's something that you've been really trying to champion a lot for to in that you know there's this fear like aren't nurses are burning out after two years we're reporting out all these new grads but they're burning out so quickly yeah two hundred fifty thousand nurses. We graduate a year in this country and we lose over fifty percent of them by the bedside within spheres a practice the largest exodus of a profession that nobody talks about and I like you left the bedside as a as an rn. Within two years. I went back to Grad. School became a nurse practitioner for that exact feeling of feeling so like I didn't have that voice and every time I stepped in and I felt like there were so many near misses where I begged you know for changes to happen or orders to be changed or medications to begin our interventions to happen literally knowing that things were going wrong but not having the ability to make those decisions to change. There's outcomes depending on other people to make those decisions and only be given. The toolbox is a nurse to sit there and say well I really think I really believe are really feel that we got to make this big this change or get medication and not giving the tools to actually effectively voice. Why I had the you know the knowledge in the expertise to make those decisions at everything I always did had to be signed off by somebody else because as I was considered for lack of a better world credible enough or had the license or the intelligence to be able to recognize that what we were seeing. Mary made sense it. We should be able to take initiatives to save patient's lives because that was always really hard place for me to citizens to sit there and beg other people and then sometimes it literally and I'm sure you face it if you felt like you were burnt out so often begging to make the changes that we did an often being told. Hey stay in your lane like if you see problems but your job is to be a nurse and to do those things. Your job is not to challenge the way that things are being done and under mentally. That always sat wrong with me Fundamentally because you probably nursing school told hey you're you're the advocate of the patient where you really get on but when we got out in practice man it was tough

There's just one story. And it's the fear out there in the markets markets plunged today. We are now inside correction territory all connected to the corona vars. I wanted to like this does not happen very often. Stock Market could be headed for. Its worst week since the two thousand eight financial crisis. Okay lots of scary talk there. What is the actual economic damage caused by Kobe? Nineteen when the stock market closed this afternoon. We were able to see the extent of it in just five days. Global markets lost over five trillion dollars in value another way to measure how the economy is reacting to cove in nineteen is to look at where people are putting their money now. Turns out people are buying something with it. Gold when the stock market is in trouble. Gold is sometimes viewed as a financial safe haven a safe place to invest your money. When Times are tough and just recently the price of the shiny stuff hit a seven-year high stocks can rise and fall in value overnight but the value of something like gold or another safe haven like the. Us dollar is a bit more. Well safe so far. Most of the economic impacts caused by Code Nineteen are being felt in the stock market but if the disease continues to spread especially in the US we could see other negative changes for example if the disease ends up causing stores to close or people to cancel vacations and business trips or if employers start asking workers to stay home we might start seeing problems in the labor market. Those could impact everyone from hotel workers to waiters uber drivers to event planners really anyone whose job depends on people travelling right now. It's too early to say how severe those possible disruptions would get so far companies are only just starting to talk about implementing work from home policies. But since most Americans have jobs right now only around half of American adults are invested in the stock market at all any bad news for the labor market could be a bigger deal than whether or not Wall Street is trading up or down. So that's something to watch too for more on how major headlines like the spread of Kobe nineteen could affect your wallet head on over to the skin dot com slash money.

It's a fairly rich person vessel. Yeah I mean it's the kind of you buy when you have some money to buy a boat. So what happened to her well The owner of the boat was named John Hagen. He's a surgeon who lives here Toronto. And he asked a broker who is in the area where he should by boat so John and the broker whose name was pat sturgeon Had A few conversations and they found the McKenna in Greece. In this Mediterranean port called left us their mission was to buy the boat and then find a way to get her to Canada. How do you get a boat to Canada when you buy it overseas? I mean I guess. There's an obvious answer to that question. Well Yeah I mean you you usually on the water but there are a few options you can. You can bring a boat over in a container ship shipped almost package kind of thing or if you want to maybe save a little money depending or have a little more flexibility you can hire skipper to get on that boat. Hire a small crew and take it where you want. And this is what he did. And that's what he did. So tell me. But the the captain and the crew and and I guess what Rupert Mondro does because this is a job that I didn't know existed. It's an unbelievable story. How he started doing what he's doing he was born in South Western. England in Devon Place called barnstable. He was a trained actor at one point. He had his own company. He went bankrupt. He told me at the age of Twenty Eight. He was Drifting around I think thinking what do I do next at that point and so he got on a boat and loved. It started sailing and eventually he started delivering goods because he was very good. Skipper and so twenty five years. He did that until the he was he was hired to bring the McKenna across the Atlantic But he he's just a natural born c fair when you talk to him about it You know it's it's like he was born on the water and the way people talk about him is a remarkable. They say it's almost as if he doesn't need instruments he he can sail the seas just by sort of you know putting his finger in the wind and saying little now the waves are gonna come this way so we better go this way and You know he has autopilot. And all the fancy instruments but He's he's been spent the latter half of his life Just having fun sailing boats around the world and he's gone almost everywhere so he captained the McKenna taking it. I guess from Greece to Canada. Yeah he he brought crew And a cook And in October of two thousand eighteen they they met in in Greece and they spent a few days. They're getting ready Inspecting the boat making sure everything was in working order. It was by all accounts. A beautiful boat the McKenna was in very good condition and And ready for the voyage. He said By text to John. The surgeon Looking wonderful we're GONNA get going and so. They sailed through the Mediterranean. They had to stop in Italy everywhere. They talked with scenic about away but they stopped in Italy to fix a a steering problem fixed. It kept going. Stop at Gibraltar for a little while whether stopped them from going much. Further few days finally got onto the Azores which was the final stop before the Atlantic crossing Weather stop them again. There's a lot of weather in the late fall in the North Atlantic relatively treacherous waters so They were waylaid for for a while and It it took them quite a bit of time to get from Greece to the stores But then in November they set sail for Halifax what happened well. A lot of bad things happened relatively quickly The the treacherous weather caught up with them again. Rupert had this satellite phone that he borrowed from another sailor and he was able to get weather reports on sort of four or five hour delays. So he would check the forecast and based on what it said he would. He would steer the boat in a different direction. There was a big weather system coming in a big low pressure system from the South who was moving north and he and his crew. We're GONNA try to beat it to the north and they almost got there when you when you look at some of the screengrabs. They have of the of the weather patterns but they didn't quite make it and we're caught in this little arm of what they all refer to everyone involved in this as a hurricane. It was not a named hurricane but it was hurricane-force winds and it had this little arm whipping around and got caught in it and It for twenty four hours totally ravaged the boat crew was hunkered down The waves were were roaring. The wind was ripping through the rigging of the masks on On the on the boat and they were I mean they were they were rolling safely but quite violently through huge waves the kind of waves that you would see in big bad blockbuster movies you know. Not Maybe not the biggest of the big but huge so The weather data and they and they survived that The boats survived intact. They didn't capsize anything. Like that. But When it was safe to emerge in sort of inspect the damage rupert who Never saw probably couldn't fix came out and saw problem he almost couldn't fix because Man It was. Just it was torn. The steering was broken. The rudder was at a place it took some real Seafaring ingenuity to even get the boat. Operable again he and they kept going well. The steering quadrant was broken. The the the sort of mechanism that connects the rudder to the autopilot into the anything you need to actually change direction in the boat. He had to flip it around and turn it one hundred and eighty degrees the steering quadrant and then welded into place. Not Welding really. He had a cables and whatever it was at its disposal that would keep things together and worked. And so he I think the cruise airing macgyver. I got yeah he really was a seafaring macgyver and I think the crew was stunned They they were texting as well back to John. The surgeon who was a little helpless at this point in probably starting to feel a little guilty by boat is in the middle of the North Atlantic Middle North Atlantic. And his crew. That I sent. There's with it in. Oh my God we can even do and so. He was getting texts. They're saying we're pretty sure Rupert Scott under control because he's a pretty you know stoic. Man and And he did and they kept going and then well and then I hit more weather goodness. It never really stopped. They were chugging at this point as fast as they could to Halifax where the boat was gonNA spend the winter before coming to Toronto in the spring but more weatherhead This time the forecast racist dead wrong it. It misled Rupert and And his crew and they found themselves overtaken by a storm that I don't think was hurricane force but was nevertheless the kind of thing that would damage a boat. That's already been that's already damaged it just. His ingenuity was Was unfortunately Somewhat beaten down two to nothing by the storm so they found themselves once it had calmed a little bit and they were able to assess the situation adrift at Sea. What do you do in a situation like that? Well in this case what you do. Is You look for boats in the vicinity of your of your boat? Anybody who can help. You is a savior and fortunately for the McKenna. There were two Canadian navy ships. Who happened to be coming home from a mission a training mission in And War Games in Europe and they were only about eight nautical miles away from the McKenna. When everything went Super Ri- so rupert the captain got on the radio with Peter McNeil the captain of HMCS glaze Bay talked a little bit and Ships turned towards the McKenna it was glaze. Bay and HMCS summerside two coastal defence vessels. Which are two of the smaller ships in the fleet? But by comparison to the McKenna they were quite large and probably looked a you. Know a welcome sight to about adrift without any ability to really go anywhere on. Its own power and then they rescued them and it was no problem. In the story is over everything's Peachy The ship came and they just pluck them out. No it was really difficult. The story of this rescue is the stuff of a movie. This podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? You need a plan
Microsoft's most daring Surface ever might be unveiled this week
"We do have a lot to talk about obviously to more. You're here here for the surface of the Microsoft hardware of and not this not a surface event. It's a Microsoft hardware wording here obviously a lot of surface news coming along so I want to kind kind of stick to that and actually at the show I'll give a little review of my iphone eleven pro Max that I've here for about a week and a half now so it's a lot of pros and cons say that there's a lot of nothing but good news from US Review Sandra curious. I'm there's some there's a handful of things not all the sickness. That's making your negative. The sickness made me extremely you like it didn't prevent me from getting a flu supposedly Rowsley Apple Devices prevent illness and injury. You know what that's what I thought but only if I had the air pods any Apple Watch I would have been prevented all illnesses so tim. I'm Cook told me so Paul. What do you want to begin with. This event actually let me let me begin at the end because this is leaking all of the twitter's right now so so as I had speculated for actually many weeks in a row and windows weekly Microsoft is GonNa because I base this on the timing of the event. You may recall that in the spring. They suddenly started testing windows ten version twenty one. The Virgin is not coming until next year. That was very confusing. They've never done anything like that before. It's a Lotta time right yeah and and given that and the fact that such and Adela was coming to this event. I I've been speculating that maybe this'll be the time that they unveil what's going on. Software wise in that release because it must be the basis of this light. Os or whatever we're calling this thing that we've been talking about for a long time and now what has leaked is that Microsoft will announce a new version of windows ten wins ten acts that will ship late next year on new dual screen in folding screen devices does ten x ten ten. Well Yeah right right so this is the first this. Is this the first name. I guess official name change absorb trailer for Windows ten. No no no no so. This is just a new version so we have windows ten home. We have pro enterprise. We have been pro. workstations nations got it so ten. X is another skew. It's and it will only be provided on those devices. It's not something well. I should say I I actually don't know a lot about it right now so I should say I don't you know there's no way that someone with windows ten. homer pro is ever going to be able to update to this or upgrade or whatever it's not a you know. It's like a side hi thanks so it's just another skew in its very specifically for those kinds of devices and so we'll see what else you know. They'll talk about it. they'll show show off a prototype apparently some people upset of what Mary Jo Foley Centaurus and you know look we know Dell and Lynn Ovo have both talked about. I don't know if was falling deal screen devices or one of the one of both whatever those are the number one in three three P. C. makers in the world. Presumably everyone in the top five will announce such a device may be. We'll see one of those Lenovo last year was very or the subsisiary. Actually was very cagey when they said you know it's. GonNa be running windows but they didn't say which version obviously it's going to be this version so yeah that's exciting. I suspect I'm just again. I'm just guessing based on timing that twenty one that version of windows ten we've been testing forever must have the plumbing wing necessary to support those devices and that will actually see the the real world support for it in two thousand eight to which would be a minor upgrade that will ship at this time next year so so that's that's the big news it's kind of like their one more thing you know type announcement right because obviously the focus tomorrow is going to be on the stuff like here's the new stuff that we're. GonNa ship very soon for this holiday season the windows ten x stuff for next year time period but I think they're just prepping the user base really just for the future right so this this is coming windows those who support folding until screen devices. I find it very interesting considering d think they'll show some some sort of you know demo on a rendered device. I have no idea yeah I'm curious about that. I I yeah I'm curious. See I'm curious to see if usually at these events. You don't see you know deller. Lenovo already other company right so I don't know if they're going to either not. I don't know if we're actually going to see their devices in person or anything like that. I don't that I have no idea that demo is for those folding devices. I I know that I know that it's hot now because it's new but coote. Who is it marketed to WHO I remember. It's almost like when the note I came out right the Samsung note and everybody said the way too big for the regular consumer. WHO's this poor. Who needs the phone to be that big and in reality slowly? Every single phone became that Obagi now there's nothing unique about it in that sense but you know right now who sat foldable device for actually the that thing thing that you just mentioned is probably a good comparison because it well okay. I guess it doesn't actually replace another device. I suppose in some ways the died so for a lot of people a FAB type form factor means. They don't have to have a tablet and a phone right so they have this thing. That's kind of inbetween in a does both things well. You can watch movies and read. It's like a big enough screen. I think that this new device type folding a dual screen devices kind of fall into the same type of category where in in this case what you might be preventing yourself or not having to carry any Moore's laptop right that this thing will will be a phone or a small tablet form factor to begin with and it's easy to carry but when you need the bigger screen you can kind of open up. It's it's sort of the same value proposition gas as you know a folding smartphone right. It's when you need it. You know you get the bigger screen and so I'm I'm curious to see how Microsoft presented that I mean the surface team has proven itself to be very averse to leading edge technology right. They still don't support thunderbolt three for some reason so what what would make them jump on the bandwagon with this kind of thing they must have some pragmatic rationale for it. They don't tend to just do things to kind of nuts not so part of it is probably pressure from PC makers you know in the same way that Samsung and Weiwei and whatever must have gone to go and say hey guys. This is the new trend you've got support this android they did even though they don't today provide their own folding vice of any kind and they don't seem to be making one. Microsoft in this case is making one so very interesting because we'll say very. It's very interesting considering. This is something that we've been I berth for all that changes a lot doesn't and this was probably one of the first major topics we discuss when you and I started started doing podcasts courier was a foldable windows based device or Microsoft device that a lot of people were excited for in two thousand nine or two thousand and two thousand ten right when I think he mark thousand career exact timing yeah I mean we go back to it because it kind reminds me of this because we we had the scene discussion where who is marketed to US vice four and can't catch catch on. I'm not convinced that why and Samsung are going to have a la- major success with their foldable devices with their foldable yeah. Maybe it's something that happens over time I the the note was immediately successful in it triggered a a real change in the industry. Even apple eventually jumped on board. Obviously the the folding thing it's GonNa take a while but part of the reason is just the reliability issues right. You're seeing problems with their redesigned designed. Samsung Galaxy fold and so it's GonNa take a little a little take a little while. I do think that because. PC's are bigger and bulkier devices compared to phones that the reliability issues have a chance of not being a serious and there are some productivity arguments. You could make around in having a bigger screen at your disposal so we'll see. I mean some of it's going to be hokey. It may not you know the whole thing may not fly. I don't personally other than the whole yeah. It's cool the thing I mean I. I don't personally see a use case for it. So a lot of people said that about like we said the note. I remember remember when I when I think jokes holding like an ipad up to like I had one sent me by. At and T. to review and I loved it. I praise the device I I thought the more battery life and that thing remember Android at that point wasn't as refined as as it is now at all bit rot was way worse than it was today. These things were were the soft software wasn't as sophisticated as it was on the iphone at that time so I love the phone and I gave it a praising a great review view where the battery life was a necessity and other other manufacturers should catch onto this large display and

How's everything else with the rest of her health? Is there anything else going on currently now? You'll play full. Well, when I have an older kiddie, that's displaying signs of grooming in an unusual spotlight. This if a little less common that we start looking at things like allergies and skin disease. I actually start to go looking for some of the more internal problems in a lot of these cases, I can actually find that a cat might be displaying signs of pain something going wrong internally. So I will check xrays a lot of times. I'll find things like bladder stones or arthritis, and these type of things can cause them to groom on the surface in a way to react to some more inner pain and discomfort that they're having. So that would definitely be something that I would look at and some older cats also with some different types of hormone problems. We can see problems with kidney disease liver disease, diabetes, some of those where we can even see some types of skin problems and manifestations of that. So it would probably be something that if I had her here right now. Pull up my nice big needle and syringe and draw some blood and get those x-rays and take a good look. Because in many cases, you know. It's kind of the katie's way of talent us that. You know? Hey, I'm not right. There's something going on inside.

So that shift of perspective brawl energy to my life that I had not experienced in a long time. So that was the first effect that you noticed instantly, you have more energy. Now what you do that energy. You put that energy to work. Right. You put it into growing and learning happiness brings a growth mindset almost automatically you don't judge people anymore. Yeah. You don't. You're not jealous of their success. You congratulate them you you wanna help them. And so this spiral up. That starts with being happier. That's just amazing. The next thing. I did was noticing that. I'm not so happy with with my fitness level. So what you start doing that? And it shows that when you're happier. It's much easier for you to to just do that to stay on course. Because you know, then you'll go running and then you don't focus on. Oh my God. I need to finish ten K today. You'll focus on had this amazing run. And had this amazing thing happening at the run, whereas soil wild FOX somewhere, and it was brilliant. And so that's what gets you running again.

But because happiness is a form of courage was just much easier to do and to endure and with now in at around a million dollars in seed funding, and we're making forty thousand people happier right now.

I love what you said there about how courage is an happiness or intertwined, and obviously if you're gonna have a growth mindset, you need courage in order to go into the unknown. And I think that is where a lot of people find their sticking point. Because of course, everyone wants to be happy. Of course, the idea of growing sounds so. Good. Why wouldn't everyone do it? However, it's the well the excuses going to be because going out there. I'm going to be uncomfortable.

"They're doing twenty thousand arches year at twenty five thousand piece, I know, and what I love about it is when they come into town like Phoenix, they do so much advertising that lifts the ocean for all the dentist. Your own patients are watching these commercials, and they're coming in asking you about it. I don't know a single oral surgeon town the season is competition because they do so much. Advertising, they lift everyone's boat. Well, you know, we talk about this seminars. And they're really kind of two ways coming up the world in many ways. But what are the ways I looked is abundant first scarcity and ninety five cents the world looks at the world like comes scarcity in other words, I can't give until I get mine, and I belong to a group called the funds three sixty s Peter Dimond us who wrote a book called abundance, and what we are two hundred of his group. And we see we see problems in the world has opportunities. And as Peter says, I've come a billionaire billion people, but we see we come from abundant and his surgeons that come from abundance. They welcome clear choice. If you're coming from scarcity, you're afraid of them. I think that yet that goes back to our book because we actually in our intro really touch upon that subject because we want to have anyone who's reading this book really do a mind shift and understand that these principles can really work in your practice. And that's coming from abundance. Rather than scarcity rather than scarcity is thinking, well, but this this doctor is in a big town, and I'm at a small town. So of course, that couldn't work for me.

The meat company trying to train up a more diverse generation of startup founders from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Only about one percent of venture capital backed startup founders are black according to CBS sites. Data even fewer are black women or Latino. There's not a lot of age, diversity geographic, diversity and underrepresented founders. Don't always have access to the networks or the training programs that can help them get startup funding. Mandela Dickson is a former public schoolteacher startup founder and was a mentor for entrepreneurs at the firm Cape or capital about a year ago. She created founder, Jim, which is an online only training program for would be startup founders. I talked to her the afro tech conference last week in San Francisco. Just like if you want to be a lawyer, you go to law school, if you wanna be a doctor you go to medical school, right? But there is no school for people who wanna be venture capital backed startup founders in often times the schools that are formed are informal right by your networks and a lot of underrepresented founders. Don't have the people in their networks who've raised venture capital who've Ben venture capitalists. So we're. Literally, creating kind of from the ground up this first Ebba curriculum, specifically tailored to meet the needs in how a deep level of empathy for the lived experiences of underrepresented founders. So tell me about the Taylor like what is different about the message that you give to underrepresented founders. What are the first activities we do is actually called differences as strengths, and it really is actively for founders to reflect on what makes them unique how because you didn't grow up where these other people grew up because you went to different schools and were exposed to different things that your purview is different in the world. And that you're able to see problems other people don't even know exist, and that's a competitive advantage because most people out there, are you mostly will out there are not from fluid background. And so the problems that you're going to go out and solve will actually help the majority of people since it's online only talked to me about the network building. Because I know that's a big thing that people talk about when they come out of us of an accelerator in there with a class, and they really have. It's sort of like we were all eagle scouts together. Baen it's huge. How do you create that in a in an online experience straight question? So that's actually one of the biggest things I underestimated Meyer, original hypothesis for founder, Jim was that it was a curriculum was a language barrier that the reason people were not succeeding here from certain groups was because they didn't speak the language. Well, what I grave underestimated was that people were looking for a community these individuals again, they're only in their world. They may be the only black or Brown or let LGBTQ are older founder in their circle in. So how we structure network it's in we're very intentional. We do affinity groups on a weekly basis. We also do peer trainings. So it's not just the expert trainers who have the knowledge we actually elevate the founders within our community to train each other Mandela Dixon is founder and CEO of founder, Jim incubators and exceleron for underrepresented, founders are becoming more. Common. Although experts say it'll be hard to change the industry for good until the venture capitalist themselves. Become more diverse and now for some related links. I did find some hopeful news about the tech industry, relatively speaking. An off Ed in entrepreneur magazine from about a week ago notes, a big upsurge in the number of events focused on women and investment, partly because successful women entrepreneurs are funding the next generation of founders and also because we're just talking about it a lot still only two percent of BC funding went to women at all in two thousand seventeen far less to women of color. But it's a good read binded utter website. Marketplace tech dot org, and before we go a super quick story that you might have missed and all the Amazon hubbub earlier this week. Google is not to be outdone. It said it also plans to double its workforce in New York City over the next ten years, reminding us that the ranks of the underrepresented in the tech industry are also anyone who's not in about four major metropolitan areas.

How to get your ideal client's attention
"To capture your ideal clients attention, whether it's online on your website on social media, or if you're at a business of dent and you're meeting people, who are your potential clients, you want to use language that is their language. You want to describe. The things you help people do because most entrepreneurs you either help. Someone solve a giant boulder of a problem, right? That's blocking them hats, the rest of their life, right? Or you help them chief this giant dream. That feels like it's as far away as Mars. So when I ask people to get clear on their ideal client, it's really getting down to it's even more than a niche. You've got a target market, you think of his beach fall right now, then you think of a niche market? Well, that's a medicine ball, like a workout, all of its smaller, and that's that's a good start. But I like to say, go further drill down to the diamond in the centre, your perfect ideal client and get to know them better than they know themselves get to know them. Like, you know, your family journal. I recommend journal some people like to write your computer, asked yourself everything about them. Sure. You saw problems for him, that's that's just the beginning. Why do they want to solve the problems? What are their emotional drew. Drivers? What gets them up in the morning? You start with what are they wake up at two AM going God. If I don't fix, you know, ABC problem a my life and my businesses over, right, we'll hold on to help clarify for second because I think you crossed over into a separate area and I want to make sure that I haven't lost anybody that's in our community. We started by talking about things like marketing, and then we started to develop a maybe an idea that might be sales or or there's definitely difference between sales and marketing. So how is it that we can teach ourselves? We have to understand what our market wants, but we also have understand how to present it to our market so that when they come to us as result of our great marketing that we're about to go into, we don't feel like we are being to sales a, you're too pushy for them because isn't that one of the issues that many people have factly feeling. They don't want to throw in horn. They don't wanna feel overly self promotional, but the way around that is to think about marketing number one, you're being of service when you're telling potential clients how you help. Others just like them. You talk about the outcomes. You shove very brief stories about how you help people just like them solve problems just like they have. It's interesting because it's almost like you're educating the people that are coming to you as to the things that you've done that have been good in the past with other clients and all your basically doing sharing the other client story about how you were able to solve their problem thinking. Maybe there's some crossover if you've done it. Right. And your only marketing to a specific niche market, they probably have very similar problems. They probably have the same questions at many. Your other clients have an all you're really doing is solving the problem through sharing the story of how you solve the problem for somebody else.
