The International Fund for Animal Welfare says some 45 dolphins were found stranded by harbor officials in Wellfleet Sunday morning. Stacy Headmen, a manager with the Army based group says it appears the Dolphins got stranded sometime overnight is the tides changed? She said. Volunteers used beach ready stretchers to carry nearly a dozen of the dolphins to safety. They also gave them Ivy fluids and vitamins to dolphins, however, were in poor health and were euthanized.
Drug Companies Face Lawsuits From Opioid Crisis As They Respond To The Pandemic
"This week, Johnson and Johnson announced a $1 billion deal with the federal government to develop a new Corona virus vaccine. It's one of many drug companies on the front lines of the covert 19 response, but many of these same firms are facing an avalanche of lawsuits for their role in the opioid epidemic. NPR addiction correspondent Brian Man has been following this and joins us now. Hi bran. Hi, Stacy. Somewhere in this seems like kind of a complicated moment for the drug industry in two very different stories playing out, But first tell us where things stand with the opioid lawsuits. Yeah, eso covered 19 basically shut down the court system nationally for months, but now that log jam is breaking loose and thousands of these civil and criminal cases they're grinding forward again. Big federal trial against pharmacy chains involved in the opiate epidemic just got the green light in Ohio. And next month, a lawsuit against two drugmakers Endo and Mallinckrodt goes to a jury trial in Tennessee. I spoke with Gerard Stranz, one of the lead attorneys representing local governments. In that case, they're demanding billions of dollars in compensation from these companies. Justice delayed is justice denied, and they know that when they sit in front of a jury of the community members would have to explain their conduct. There is no explanation and they're going to have to answer for what they've done. Remember, the federal government says 1/4 1,000,000 Americans have died after taking these opioid medications, and the drug industry is still scrambling to cope with the legal and financial fallout from that. Is there a risk that that opioid look, lawsuits could destabilize or maybe even bankrupt drug companies? I mean this at a time when they are really needed to respond to the pandemic. You know, people are talking a lot about this. Some drug companies have already filed for bankruptcy because of opioids and other firm Mallinckrodt said this week they may file for Chapter 11. So there is concern that holding these companies accountable for the addiction epidemic could disrupt their ability to make these important medical products. Rebecca half a G studies opioid litigation for the Rand Corporation and the University of Michigan. All of these companies have other products as well as opioids that are used for medically necessary purposes. So the goal is not necessarily to put these pharmacies thes manufacturers these distributors out of business altogether, and that would actually be bad for public health and or the health care industry. So one thing I'm hearing Stacy's. As these court cases all move forward. There's new pressure to reach some kind of national opioids settlement that would end all this uncertainty for the drug industry. I mean, obviously, the opioid lawsuits have been a huge black eye for the drug industry. Do you think the pandemic will give them a chance to repair some of the damage to their reputations? I think that is part of the story. Right now. Johnson and Johnson is a good example. Last year Oklahoma one A half $1,000,000,000 decision against the company of the state's attorney general described Johnson and Johnson as a drug kingpin organization for its role making and selling opioids. It's terrible PR. Now the company's casting itself really differently is a public health champion. Of course, a lot of state and local governments say not so fast. They want billions of dollars from these companies before they put the opioid crisis

Top Chef Champ Kristen Kish Makes It Personal
"Now here's my conversation with Kristen. Kish it's so good to talk to you. Likewise I feel like we're we're so close yet so far from each other how we are so close. I just walked across the bridge for the first time during this whole crisis than I've seen your Brooklyn Bridge photos. Thanks to instagram. We can certainly do Brooklyn Bridge. Meet up obviously. Our mutual friend stacy her and I have met up multiple times in the middle of the bridge to hand off for they treats than just to say hello and Cheers a half. A glass arose. May before we went back to our sides of the bridge which was pretty awesome. You did that on top of the on the bridge yeah. Her birthday was recently last week or Memorial Day whenever that day was Two days ago basically a month ago. Yes we she requested a week ago. She texted me inches. Like cinnamon rolls and Bianca's chocolate cake. That's what I want for my birth founded sure so we made it happen and we brought a little bottle of Rosa Little Mason Jars. Had A little toast on a bridge in handed off birthday treats of. That's really sweet. Tell us who Bianca is why her chocolate cake is so special. So Bianca is my fiance. We were engaged in September. We've been together for awhile now. So if you if you've known what I've eaten for any of my life it hasn't always been the healthiest. It's certainly been kind of Brown crispy fried in the general direction of my Diet and so upon meeting her and kind of understanding what it actually meant to take care of my INSCI- She got me hooked on this whole healthy baking and trying to figure out new ways of making these cakes I love and so her chocolate cake is grain free gluten free dairy free refined sugar free. Sounds like there's nothing good left in it but I swear to God it is. It is so good. It's like the Fudgy Omen Brownie. It's absolutely delicious. And she made it once for Stacey who then requested the cake many times since. Then we're talking about Stacy London who some of you know from what not to wear from TV and stacy's million other things not just that. So does the most important question does this amazing chocolate cake. Frosting okay so I will say it the first round and trial batch it absolutely. Did it had like this vegan refined sugar using like powdered monk? Fruit jitter whatever which is genius thing and it did. And then we started we. We did it once and we layered. It was all supposed to be layered and then we realized we didn't really like. It became too sweet so we just took that out and now. It's kind of like a Brownie celebration. Which I feel like is one. It's one less step that we don't have to do and she freezes really well so we put them in little We wrap them. We put them in the freezer in any time we wanted. We put take it out. Put it in the microwave for thirty seconds. And it's it's perfect all right. Will you know you have to share this recipe now on instagram? Anything about the cake is that every time that I've gone to make it or even lended a hander. Quite frankly just looked at it. I have screwed it up somehow because I don't know how to follow recipes and so I always get yelled at on so I don't ever make it anymore but I get from. Can it be a birthday cake without frosting? Yes absolutely I think. I gave her cinnamon rolls those that have frosting but we weren't. We didn't have the cake but we have the frosting and then we have the chocolate cake but no frosting so I feel like the combination of a long work out perfectly.

"If you desire to get rid of the overwhelm and just plan effectively conquer fear and make your dreams a reality. This episode is for you. To radian per leaving podcast where you will hear fearless stories to nurture your dreams and inspire you to leave a radian lifestyle. You love now. Here's your host Stacy's in. Hi and welcome to Raden. Pearl Living. So, what does it mean to be effective? Effective is defined as successful in producing a desired or intended result. I dare to say when we plan to accomplish something or work towards a goal, our desire is to be effective. We want a desired or intended result or else. Why would we be diligent in our effort? Here are three questions. We will explore today and answer one. How do you plan effectively to? How do you actually read of overwhelm three? Can you really conquer fear and make your dreams reality? Alright, so let's explore this topic further, so you can begin planning effectively and get rid of that absurd. Overwhelm conquer your fear to make your dreams a reality already. So how do you plan effectively just last week? Week we address the topic of effective planning in great detail through twelve simple steps that make you sensational so this week. I want to bring your attention to how you can create an effect. You desire through your planning. Do you believe you're being effective in your planning? Presently and that you are successful in producing a desired or intended result after your mind is conceived something you hope to achieve, it has always been a philosophy of mine that the mind can conceive it. You can achieve it. It however I take it a step further as a believer that Christ as my guide, there is nothing I can't accomplish because with God, all things are possible mark ten verse twenty seven Jesus said Unto Him without can believe all things are possible to him that believe at Mark Nine Verse Twenty three, actively planning combined with faith yields the results to great possibility. There are a number of things I'm believing God for for example to have a family business that leaves a lasting impact on the. The global community and eternal soul, the action I take towards not losing. Hope is to plan towards the very thing I hope to accomplish as the scripture further tells us. Faith without works is dead. You want the very thing you're working towards to be filled with life and life more abundantly, so as you envision the amazing things you would like to see come forth in your life. It may get overwhelming just thinking about how you're going to make it all happen, but take a deep breath. It's not up to you and you alone to make it happen. Remember in the last episode when I spoke about the importance of collaboration and surrounding yourself with the right people and community as you build relationships well. The most important relationship you'll find in receiving the desires of your heart is the vertical relationship. Personally I found that the times. I've experienced. The most anxiety and stress was when I did not have Christ at the forefront of the equation. So how do you actually get read off overwhelm? The role or faith plays in planning for the future is reassuring when we know, we are not in this fight for an abundant life on our own. There is someone who holds the world and my life, your life in the safe and loving palm of his hands, if I simply trust in this fat than the plans i. And the steps I take towards realizing those dreams of mine will ultimately come to pass when the time is right and I'm ready to walk into the door. That is now before me. In episode to discuss the importance of preparation, and now you and I are fully aware anticipate that there will be pain in the process. However it is that very disappointment that you may have experienced in her life or denied dream you may be experiencing the present that will propel you and I towards the most radiant destiny, and want you to take full advantage of the time you have right. Right now while you're waiting to get there to that, glorious plays of actualize dreams. You're working so hard to get to right now. With a simple plan, you can get there. Can you really conquer fear and make your dreams a reality I'm always amazed by how many people walk and fair and don't dare to do the things they've been meaning to because they come up with excuses after excuses. Don't be like Jane or John who misses out on the abundance that can be there's. Because Fair will just keep you from planning. Let's not allow it to keep us from planning pursuing and pushing forward toward the goal. The goal that you have in mind right now and beyond like you I am not a stranger to the excuse I. Don't feel qualified enough. Enough pretty enough polished enough disciplined enough enough enough already there is nothing the mind can conceive that you can't achieve. Get to planning, Conquer Fair today and make your dreams a reality by simply starting with a plan. To many of us are walking around in fear with inside. Not Stop it the leave.

"stacy" Discussed on Thinking Sideways Podcast
"Him so one night they had gone out on a pseudo date to shoot some pool and have some drinks at a local bar and interviewing the waitress the patrons and other people who were there that night they found out that Benito was making advances towards Stacey and she was rebuffing him she was pushing his arm away and some people said that she looked uncomfortable when he tried to kiss her and she would turn her head and she just didn't seem like she wanted anything to do with him. Well the bill arrived. And when the bill arrived Benito and Stacy got into a loud verbal argument about who was going to pay for it and everybody there said that it was a little bit of a scene and Benito stormed out of the restaurant and Stacey followed him close behind and they both got into the pickup truck. That was later at the scene of the hit and run accident so now we have eyewitnesses placing Benito Ramirez in the driver's seat of the pickup truck placing stacey in the passenger seat along with the DNA and hair evidence that was found in the windshield and the rest of the story started to unfold. What happened was the crash occurred at the intersection. Benito being an illegal immigrant being drunk and now being guilty of a hit and run crash ran from the truck and stacy ran to and we found out through stacy's cell phone records that she fumbled with her cell phone and she tried to dial nine one one but in her panic she dialed three one one in bed and she did tumble down that dirt embankment and she was trying to get away. Because Benito Ramirez was angry. He was mad that she had rebuffed his advances. How dare she rebuffs his advances when he was paying for her gifts and paying for her drinks and paying for her food and she ran and she tumbled down the dirt embankment and he followed close behind and Benito's brother? Tobacco said that Benito carried a folding pocket knife all the time and he took that knife and unfolded it and he called her and the first thing that he did was he caught her in the back and he raked that knife across her back and she tumbled to the ground and she fought for her life against a man with a knife and as she was kneeling in the mud he grabbed her by the hair and he cut her neck and he stabbed her in the chest and he left her there to die and then Benita Ramirez called his brother several times to come get him and Chabala picked him up a half mile from the crash site. The Detectives Brought Benito Ramirez Downtown to the Homicide Office to interview him. They read him his rights. He said he understood through an interpreter and they started questioning him about the night of the crash in the night of the murder and he didn't have a whole lot to say. They showed him the photographs my overhead photographs from the latter bucket. They showed him the photographs of her body photographs from the autopsy and he was nonplussed when Benito Ramirez learned that his own brother sold him out. He didn't have anything to say but no matter. He was still booked on first degree murder and he was placed into pretrial detention to await trial. The State Attorney's office filed the information and brought the case before a grand jury and they didn't take long to come back with a true bill of indictment for first degree murder for Benito Ramirez. He sat in pretrial detention for five years. When the case was shuffled from attorney to Defense Attorney and depositions were taken more interviews were done discovery was exchanged between the prosecution and defense and in August of two thousand ten. The case went to trial and I looked very forward to detailing the forensic evidence for that jury it had been a very long and arduous road and it was finally time for the truth to out to the twelve people who would make the decision on Benito Ramirez's fate and I had no doubt about a guilty verdict once. The jury saw everything that our team had done on August eleventh. I took the stand and the prosecuting attorney introduced me as an expert witness and the judge allowed my testimony. The defense had no objection and I started off by describing the primary scene and the prosecutor went very quickly to the bloodstain evidence on Stacy's jeans. The prosecuting attorney asked me what those patterns told me and I described to the jury about the void patterns increases over jeans and how that meant that she was likely on her knees or in some kind of a seated position when the injury to her neck occurred and I looked over to some of the jurors. I was giving my testimony and I could see nods and of concentration. On their part they were taking notes. And when you're in the witness stand and you see that happen it's a good thing. They were hearing the evidence they were hearing. What happened to Stacy Replogle that night and after I got through with the jeans? The prosecuting attorney went over to the evidence table and he picked up the envelope that had the skin and hairs from the windshield in it and he brought it over to the witness stand and he asked the judge for permission to present that envelope to the jury and he passed it over to the first juror who took it in his hands and he looked at it any winced and I watched that envelope go hand to hand through every single juror and I watched their faces the expressions went from disbelief to anger to indignities and every one of them looked past me and pass the prosecutor to the man who had murdered Stacey Replogle sitting at the defense table and I knew at that moment that there would be a guilty verdict but I had to wait because I was not the last person to give testimony and my testimony was not over because although the prosecution had finished their questions with me after about two hours on the witness stand going through everything from the autopsy the cuts on her hand her jeans her sweater all of the information that I had to provide the defense had their cross examination of me and it really wasn't that complicated they asked me about the weather and how it had ruined a lot of the shoeprints that were at the crime scene. They asked me if I had found a murder weapon and honestly I had to answer. No we hadn't found a murder weapon. I don't know whatever happened to it. They asked me about the truck and whether or not it was drivable and I said No. It was demolished in the crash. They asked me if all of the collection and photographs were by me and I said yes and after about five or six minutes of cross examination. My testimony was over. The medical examiner testified the homicide. Investigators testified all of the people from the bar that night gave their testimony and once we were finished to everyone surprise Benito Ramirez thought it would be a great idea to take the stand in his own defense. I can't say I wasn't dumbfounded. I did go to the court records because I wanted to hear what this piece of Shit had to say in his own defense and he was led to the witness stand in shackles and chains and he sat down in the bailiff adjusted his microphone and his interpreter stood to his right and the prosecutor sat at the table and the defense attorney just told him to tell his story and the judge looked at him and said. Do you still want to testify or have you changed your mind? Giving him one more out and through the interpreter Benito Ramirez said Yes. I'm going to testify. And the judge said all right you're under oath so go ahead and he leaned back in his chair and wanted to hear what this man had to say. And this is Benito Ramirez Verbatim testimony the day that everything happened. I was in my apartment. She called me to go out with her to drink. After we went out to drink we were drinking and playing pool. After that I noticed that she was using drugs because she would go to the bathroom and come in and come out the discussion we had at. The Bar was about money because I didn't want to give her money to buy drugs after that I paid the bill and then I left the bar and went to my car. I told her I was leaving and that I did not want to fight with her. After I was in my car she followed me and she got into the car through the other door without telling me anything and then I left in my car and I went to my apartment in the car. She was arguing with me and pulling on my shirt when I was driving. I looked at the stoplight. I put the brakes on. The car. Did Not respond because it was raining. The wheels just slid and since there was a car in front of us. I crashed into that car after that. I told her she had provoked the accident. And at that moment the judge interrupted and said why she had done what provoked the accident. The interpreter repeated provoked the accident. The judge scowled and Benito continued. She pulled out a pocket knife and cut my hand when she cut my hand. We started to fight. We had both both of US had drunk a lot while we were fighting. I grabbed the pocket knife that she had cut me with and while we were struggling and the judge erupted again. I'm sorry I'm having trouble. Hearing Ramirez didn't flinch and he just continued while we were struggling. If I had not defended myself I would have been the one that had died after that I went to Texas because I was afraid. I didn't have papers here I went to a cousin's house in Texas after that was when I was arrested. My brother accused me with the police. That's the testimony from my case and I'm telling the truth and he got down and the bail of squirted him back to the defense table and he sat down. The prosecutor refused cross examination because his bullshit story was so contemptible on its face. The defense attorneys had absolutely no witnesses to call on his behalf and the judge excused the jurors into the back room. It only took them forty minutes to come to a unanimous verdict of guilty on a charge of first degree murder and Benito Ramirez is now rightfully serving a life sentence with no possibility of parole. Stacy still visits my dreams on occasion and I. I don't know why but the exiled that comes with it as manageable now and I need to tell you that. At the time of her murder she had an eleven year old daughter and I truly hope that her daughter and the rest of her family are now able to find some semblance of peace knowing that her killer is behind bars forever. And I hope that Stacy's soul is finally able to.
"stacy" Discussed on Thinking Sideways Podcast
"We left off from chapter one. I was in the warehouse processing pickup truck that had been used in a hit and run crash near the scene of a murder of a young woman named Stacy Replogle in Jacksonville Florida. When we left off I was using an alternate light source and I was shining at across the windshield of the pickup truck that had been shattered by someone in the passenger compartment during the crash. And as I shown the light across the glass there was something there embedded within the shards that would break this case wide open. As I looked closer there were several long brown hairs dangling from the glass and I shine the light a little closer and I looked in the center of those hairs and in the middle was a small piece of skin holding them together and my mind immediately flashed back to the autopsy suite and as I saw stacy's body on the Gurney. I remembered the forehead. Abrasion that she had with the small amount of hair missing from her forehead and I thought. Oh my God this is probably hers. She had to have been writing in this pickup truck. That's how she got to the construction site. That's how she got here and I stopped what I was doing and I changed my gloves and grabbed a clean pair of tweezers and I took photo after photo after photo of those hairs because of this was going to go to a jury. I wanted no doubt in their mind as to what they were seeing. And I carefully plucked the hairs out from the glass and I placed it all into a glassy envelope and sealed it and I immediately snapped my gloves off and threw him in a biohazard bag and I grabbed my phone and I called the lead homicide detective and he picked up and he said. Please tell me some good news because at that point we had nothing to go on and I said brother man you own dinner and he said what have you got I said. Do you remember the autopsy? Were the hairs were missing from her forehead and he goes. Yeah I said I think I found him and he went silent for a minute and then he said what where and I told him. It was from the windshield and the shattered glass and I could hear on the other side of the phone. This wave of relief. Come over him and he said. I'm on my way in about ten minutes later. He got to the warehouse and I handed him the sealed envelope and a chain of custody card. And Said Buddy. You need to get this to the lab. Because I know it's going to come back to stacy now the reason this was so important wasn't just because her hairs were found in pickup truck. We now had a time line. We know what time that crash happened because it was reported to nine one one. We know what time the patrol officers responded to the crash. We know exactly what time they arrived. We know what time the truck was impounded. So now we had a timeline about when stacy if those hairs belong to her. Wednesday`sy was in that truck when it crashed how she got to the construction site and why she was where she was. What we still didn't know was why she went from the crash. Site a hundred yards to the west. How she got down a bank and to the would line but the story was starting to come together so I collected the hairs from the windshield. The detective took them straight to the Florida Department of law enforcement to have DNA analysis completed with the samples that they took from Stacy's body at the autopsy. And I knew in my gut that it was gonna be a match. I just knew it so I worked my way around the rest of the truck. I took all of the evidence and all the trash from the truck and I processed and packaged it and I left the truck there and I put an additional hold on it through the National Crime Information Center. I didn't want to release it to anybody. I wanted to hold onto it because it was now evidence of a murder at least in my mind. When I finished with the truck I had to write all of my reports do all of my diagrams and all the tedium that comes along with crime scene stuff that you don't see on television and that took a few days it took me a while to write all those reports. Do all of the diagrams documental the photographs and things like that and I won't bore you with that tediousness but after we finished all of that I got with the homicide detectives and I said tell me what's going on with the follow up. Well if you recall that truck came back to a man name. Benito Ramirez and Benito Ramirez was an illegal immigrant and soon after that crash. He didn't show up to his construction job. Yes he worked construction and he was nowhere to be found. The homicide detectives tried to track him down. They went to his last known residence. They called his last numbers. They tried to contact people at the construction site. They didn't know where he was. He had disappeared like the wind. They had no leads to go on. And unfortunately at that point the case didn't get closed. It stayed on top of the pile but until they could find. Benita Ramirez or somebody that knew something about this murder. There was nothing else to go on a few months later. The homicide detectives got a lead that Benito Ramirez had a brother Chill Ballo and they found Chabala and they contacted him and said. Hey Buddy. Where's your brother? And he was reluctant to talk to the police because Chabala was also an illegal immigrant but detectives can be pretty persuasive when they wanna be and he decided it would be better if he came down and had a nice little chat in the box with the detectives about where he was the night of the crash and what he knew and long story Short Jubilo said that Benito had called him the night of the crash and he said that he had gotten into a bar fight and he said that a woman had died in the crash and he carried her body to the woods and Jarallah went to pick him up about a half mile from the crash site and he said that Benito had blood on his clothes and he chalked it up to the bar fight like Benito said and he also said that Benito had fled the country back to Mexico so now we were in a quandary. We had to get Ramirez back across state lines to arrest him well. Chabala was their best bet. So what the homicide detectives did is they had trouble contact Benito by phone and tell him basically that he was going to be taking the rap for this murder unless Benito got his butt back across the US territory line and December of two thousand five. Almost ten months after this murder was committed. Benito Ramirez did just that he was arrested after he disembarked a Greyhound bus in downtown Jacksonville and he was booked for first degree murder during the follow up investigation. The homicide detectives interviewed a lot of Stacey's friend. They didn't stop just because the case was on the top of the pile doesn't mean you stop working on it other cases come in. They take precedent because the timeline is tight on new cases. You have to work them as they come in. But in Jacksonville there are six teams of detectives. And as long as there's some idle time you'll work the cases that you can work so what they did is they interviewed. Stacy's friends her ex boyfriend other acquaintances that she knew and they found out through an ex-boyfriend that stacy had been sort of seeing Benito Ramirez but not really he had worn stacey against seeing Benito because he didn't like him he didn't trust him and we found out that stacy had been accepting gifts from Benito and he expected a physical relationship in return and she wasn't willing to give that to.

Complex flavors: Coding Comments
"Gets out of date code comments. Are We picking fights? I would argue that code. Comments get out of date because you're not maintaining them like you're supposed to because they're in your code if code comments exist in your code. It's your job to either maintain them or delete them. I update Michael Comments. But I never touched anybody else's yeah why not. I don't know I just. I usually just skim right past them. I don't actually knowledge their existence. Even despite that's like leaving the sign up. That's like attached. I've had enough experience where it's just not actually been remotely close to the code. I'm reading but that's that is vicious circle updated or delete them I would. I would prefer that someone delete a comment if it's not relevant anymore than leave it around. Yeah I I one hundred percent agree. I think comments are amazing. And you should be commenting and you should be editing others if you've made a change and acknowledging those changes in with a comment but also have one thing to say about comments as well as much as they can be helpful review over comment meaning is like you right like a paragraph for some. Change People Argon ignore that. Maybe that's Ryan some of your symptoms. There are two words like you've read. It's like it's bloated. And you're like this is too much. Yeah they're useless right like slash slash return number something. That doesn't make like that. I can figure out. Yeah I mean I actually have a talk on this exact thing Because there are bad comments. I think that we get we kinda get on one side of the other of like a coke co comments or good or bad but there's they're bad comments they're good comments and we don't talk through the nuances there. Yeah if it's repeating what's there then? That's annoying because you're reading twice like that's so unhelpful. But sometimes co- come. It's can be really useful for explaining the why because code can always explain what but not a why Jess I didn't want to jump on this yet but since riots get go ahead and start start trouble a few minutes into the podcast yes. One hundred percent agree with Sarah comments explained. Why and code explains the how the best way I think about the the best design system especially when we're talking about complex systems cheers is is your question. Ryan when you're when you first company and we've all started at a company at some point and you're like I'm smart and then you get dropped into a code base like I have no idea what's going on. What's the ideal system that you WANNA be dropped into just like Sarah saying you want something with a good read me? 'cause that means people care about other people on the on the code You want something with a lot of comments. Because people's coach sows differ wildly especially Java scrip-. The wild wild west of programming. The way I write let's say an asynchronous function probably looks completely different from the way stacy writes it and they're all valid but you want comments explaining like kind of why you're doing it this way and that really helps on a new person and then finally of course what you want is a bunch of tests so that when you finally get ramped up and you make that change you. WanNa be certain that you didn't break anything and that is an ideal system so that you can just drop in and get get going and you have full confidence in your changes and you understand. Exactly what's happening? Yeah I just chopped. Kobe's had none of those things no unit test. No comments very scary to change. I The pick two main you get one to two of the three. You can get really good tests good comments. Don't ever get all three of these. I have never seen a code base. That has all three so stacy. How do you approach that well? I was lucky enough to still know who wrote the code. Originally and that person was still at the company so I reached out and I said here's the thing that I wanted to do. And then we pair programmed on it a little bit so that was nice. But that's if that person's not there anymore and you don't have a way to get a hold of them. I mean that then you're in a different predicament. Near just sort of have to make the change and try and test it manually as best as you know how but still it's. It's not it's not good place to be that reaching out among like inside of a company is so funny like I definitely showed up just like a big company when you have to like go. Find THEIR OFFICE OR ROW OF DESKS. Or whatever and you sit next to them you like so. I have something to talk about. And it's called line ten thousand seventy to explain yourself. They're like

Front End-Engineers Discuss Working From Home
"Let's dive right in. How are you feeling about the current situation in working from home I could start people? Don't get Sydney talking. I'm a little down. Like this. Has Been a legitimately harder than I thought. It was like okay. No-one no-one needs to call anyone or maybe I don't know you tell me you'll find at the end of this podcast. But it's it's been difficult not having like a face to face contact and not going out very much. And it's really like a disrupted my routine like going to the gym and going to the copy shop and going to the Bar Which Fanta Myself? A bit of introvert. I mean what? This Day ten of Microsoft's mandated work from home and Yeah if I mean they can see my Pelivan hear in the background. If I didn't have that I would be literally like running around my house. Just screaming closer not. I'm not really sure it's been tough. Hey at least you're getting some exercise to one way or another. Yeah I'll say the same thing In our remote work episode I talked about how the type that needs to have people around and if I had to work from home I would like to coffee shop and now that's not even an option so so it started off pretty bad. I think I wasn't very productive but I think as time has gone on. I've gone way more productive. I've gotten used to it so I actually really like it like I don't like covered nineteen of course but I've gotten used to the remote work situation. So do you think that will change after thirty days? That's a good question. We'll see guess we'll check back. Have Two kids with me. My wife and my mother lives with me so I've got plenty of people to talk to but an interesting thing for me. Is You know whenever I leave my house. I'm always super worried that I'm gonNA bring something back to my mom because she's definitely in the high risk group so I feel like I should be super shut in but if I when I leave to go for a run like come back and I'm I'm worried I'm nervous that I touched something or did something that could endanger my mom's health which is kind of an interesting way to carry just bit bathe in bleach. What I do don't track don't drink. I don't drink it but you can bathe in that's total. I'm just kidding. No one bay the bleach. I'm about to get serve lawsuit as a terrible idea. I'm signing off the gas. I don't know I don't know why we have to tell people not to drink each one of these things that should be self evident but don't drink police. It will cure everything including your life. One way to kill the virus. Yeah I would say that I mean I've been set up to work from home just from over the years working from home occasionally so like I don I'm fortunate that way like I have dusk and like monitors and all the things that make it feel comfortable but I think to like kind of what Ryan was just saying the anxiety of all this is actually a lot in. It is hard to concentrate. I'm normally. I'm quite good at that at home. Actually 'cause I feel like I have less distractions and I don't have coworkers coming by every five seconds or are I don't know visual distractions that kind of thing but Just the weight of everything you know like the stock market's crashing. You know you're losing retirement money in very privileged and fortunate enough to even have savings like that but anxiety of that plus the anxiety of the virus and like thinking about my family and my parents. And you know they're definitely an account at age category that's they're at high risk I also have friends that are immuno-compromised or friends that aren't in tech. That could possibly lose their jobs. can't work from home so like at all these things up. It's just like a swirl in your brain and it is definitely hard to concentrate on work in that kind of mindset so definitely a struggle trying to refocus me like right right some code right some code yet. Think like echoing that it's it's a lot of the anxiety deion like beaches being anxious of all the things that you both just said then also just the unknown like. How long is this last seen? Does this continue our things? Get better as the new norm. How long has that four? I think that also starts to make me feel very anxious. It's definitely made working a lot harder. Because you are thinking about those things but then I also have to remember too. Is that yeah? Maybe we just aren't working at full capacity and may be okay with that which is actually very hard to say. 'cause you'd you'd like. Oh you WanNa perform and you WANNA BE DOING. Great Dot can be. Just add to the anxiety. I've also found like Ryan mentioned having kids at home. I've actually found it very difficult to have be working from home dealing with a toddler running around and not having someone to look after him so both my wife and I are working trying to juggle. Who's looking after him? Who's on a meeting you know? When's the best time to work? We sell them figured it out. So we'll see how that goes. I was going to ask like how. How do you feel productive for me? Personally it's been really hard to feel because again I think a lot of my productivity was based around routine right like getting on the bus getting there like listening to my podcast reading my emails and then getting there and having like my meetings and going from room to room like it was very like mechanical nature of how I felt productive and now I roll out of bed like an hour later up my bosses and listen to this podcast. I mean you. Don't have the commute. O'brien commute walking over. That's true my commute. Is You know pants. Optional DOWN THE STAIRS. Maybe hop on the Peleton. Maybe not and then. Just start working from there. Yes that's been a real struggle for me is like getting that feeling of productivity back so I have no idea if I'm less productive for more Honestly maybe eighty ninety percent the same productivity rate but I feel like I'm twenty percent productive just like the feeling inside of me which causes a lot of probably undo anxiety. I think for me Mike. My coating has been through the roof. I've been more Paul requests. I think in the last two weeks and I have in the last two months combined but the other work that I do that involves talking to people and collaborating and coordinating things is just. I've I've no fucking clue what I'm doing there. It comes a lot harder to have those conversations like I mean. Look at us. Were on a remote call. We usually sit around a table at it. Has Its challenges. It's not as easy. I think it's been interesting to though just like it has been. I will echo what everyone saying. It's been difficult. It's been anxiety inducing trying to find a schedule that works when you literally are rolling from one room to another. Brian said pants optional. Like it's hard but on the plus side I don't know about you all but like it's been really interesting to see like the team. Kinda come together. At least my work team come together over slack and just being more kind of empathetic emotionally connected to the colleagues and creating sort of informal ways of connecting. Virtually that we haven't ever done before and the situation is not great but as a silver lining. There has been quite active bonding which has been really interesting. And I'd be curious to see how that plays out in person because we all are all kind of going through like a shared experience and even more so when it's when it's your team actually even just today and my team and I had a virtual lunch. It sounds weird like just thinking about it from an idea standpoint but in practice of just being able to connect even if it is virtually and just talk about I mean. We talked about corona virus a bit but just even like what? Are you watching on Netflix? Like what's like what other things are you doing other than work to pass the time? Just like your quarantined yes Ryan. How do we cheers? So Stacy? I know you'd mentioned the like workstation that you have already had a pretty good setup you have the dual monitors you have a desk and everything set up. But I'm curious like how has everyone's workstation been working at home I'll just speak for my my immediate team like I'm good but like a lot of people had don't really like working from home or haven't and don't even have any setup at all. Some people rent a room in a an apartment in San Francisco and don't even have a full apartment to themselves so the room is where they can kinda do stuff. But that means working on your bed and that's not very good for all sorts of reasons posture. Then there's also no gap in your work in home. I've seen some of the people on my team working in hallways like stocking books as a desk. And also that's another thing is even if you do want equipment. It's really hard to get either yet. Have to go to a store. Which now are in San Francisco Bay area? There's stores aren't really that open for something that's not essential and then ordering stuff is a lot slower too so that can be really
Live From The HIBT Summit - Stacy Madison of Stacy's Pita Chips
"Hey everyone so kind of a random question for you. What do you get when you take two? Psychologists one social worker and a few pounds of day-old pita bread. The answer of course is stacy's pita chips. One of the businesses we featured at our high built this summit last fault. Now if you remember a stacey story from the PODCAST. She was a social worker. Who teamed up with her brother David and her then husband. Mark both of whom were psychologists in other words. They knew nothing about the food industry when they built a multi-million dollar snack company and the whole thing began almost by accident. When Stacey and mark ran a sandwich card on the streets of Boston they would take leftover pizza. Cut It up and bake it into these crunchy little triangles. Which at first they gave away for free until it became clear that people were willing to pay for them anyway when Stacy and I sat down live onstage in San Francisco. I asked her what was going through her head at the time. Do you remember thinking? Even once you've kind of moved into making pita chips that this would grow into a massive rand no no no intention. Absolutely none never started. The company with an exit strategy. Didn't know what an exit strategy was. When we started didn't know what a business plan was. What do you think it was? Fueled the growth. I mean was it something that you were doing or do you think in some ways the growth found you because it was sort of a wave right that you started to ride bread and circus in Boston which now his whole foods and there was more interesting sort of simpler. Wholesome natural foods started as a wave and then it. Kinda went to a hockey stick. Yeah so we learned the value of being able to control your growth which is a skill in itself you know because we were doing our own manufacturing and with the growth we got into gourmet food stores and people were paying about six dollars a bag. Has Anybody here have had the pita chips? Antibody has feta chips. Well you know what I used to. I used to ask that when I would go speak somewhere. There'd be like five hands in the audience and I'd start explaining. We'll a pita chip. We take some bread and we season it. We cut it anyway. Glad I don't have to go back that far anymore. But we started in gourmet food stores from there. We were in natural food stores and we always had pure ingredients. We didn't you know the whole natural food boom and we were just automatically natural. I mean there was nothing in it. There were like three or four ingredients so we didn't actually have to do anything when all these other companies were trying to make themselves natural mood like. Hey we already are. There was a point pretty early on because at the beginning mark was cutting the pita chips by hand. Told you had a really big right BICEP. Rice yeah and eventually to just kind of grow. It wasn't like you went out to a bunch of private equity companies. Raise money righty. We were just kind of funding. The business through sale of pita chips through the sale of pita chips and running up our credit cards. Beg Steal Borrow Driving Crappy car or whatever it is. You had to habit. How did you do that? I was talking to some attendees earlier. Same story how do I grow this thing? I don't. I'm also worried that you know? When I put my product out in the world a bigger company will see it and just replicate it in crush me. That could have happened so easily. Pita chips are pretty easy to replicate. You can't patent them right. You can't patent them and they're not that easy. Sorry I'm sorry you can imagine that a delay or when he's like a huge company could figure out you know some kind of competitive product right. How and you didn't have a whole lot of money. So how are you doing that? How how are you investing in? How did you even have a place to make them? Was the rent cheap. I think you were like Lynn Massachusetts or something like that and Randolph. Mass factor is still there but initially we started off borrowing some space from a woman who made pretzels and it was when we started having to install some of our own equipment that we had to then find a bigger space so we found a space in a construction type building super nice landlords and he sectioned off five thousand square feet and then we were growing bigger and he's and he was on the other side and he's like why can just move the ball over and he moved the wallover. We took ten thousand square feet and then he's like well. I can just move out. And then we took twenty thousand square feet and then when we started grow even further. That's when we looked literally one driveway over. Was this mattress factory for sale. And you took alone a bank loan for that yes. We had a bank loan for that and I said well can I get half a million because we have to and they initially said no no not that would equity and then. I went out and got accounts and got letters from airlines. And things like that and you're going to base Yes yeah if you can make them Mike Lee. Write that down and that's how you were able to secure the loan. Yes I mean did you. I mean now. Of course you know. The the lure is to go out and seek capital and to raise money and at that time. Was that even something you would mark considered doing we did. We considered raising capital. It takes a lot of time and effort and I don't have a business background. None of us did you. Were social workers or psychologists anytime. I have to do math. I go to my sister. 'cause she's got an MBA. And I'm like you know so. We were just about to take on financing. Which is when we landed the trader. Joe's account and so we started doing higher volume and such a Nice Company. They would pay before they even got the product and it was unusual. Yeah they pay really quickly and so I ended up all of a sudden we were getting money and we were kind of us and the ships were really selling so we used the money that we got in from trader. Joe's to really fund. The business and help us grow so we never ended up taking on any extra outside money which was a very fortunate decision. Remember the podcast. He says something to me that really resonated you said by the thousands you had your your daughters and you said the business really started to run you. I have talked to so many people who've been on the show that say. If you think you're going to run this business understand. The business is GONNA run. I think Angie Dan Bastion of Boom Shaka. Pop also said version of that. What was that? What was that period? I mean that was when you started to think about. Maybe I don't WanNa do this anymore. Yeah I think at the time I still would have done it but I think mark was like there was all these things that he didn't get to do that he wanted to do. He wanted to go off and you wanted to travel and he wanted to do all these things and yet we're still growing really quickly. And we had been approached by five of the largest food conglomerates that there are in the world asking us to sell and it was a lot it. Was You know I'm breastfeeding in the closet? And it was an so the business really started to dictate our lives versus us doing what we love to do and making a living at it and so that's when we decided well I think maybe we should think about selling. I'm really interested in this idea of passion. Right toll ruffin often. We often hear. Follow your passion which is not actually possible for for many people. Follow your passion. You're passionate may not be able to afford new. Sustainable life were pita chips. Was that a passion. I mean we're you and mark really following that passionate or did it become a passion once you started to really it. It wasn't a pita chips per se. It was just like we were in the food business where we both wanted to be. But I feel like it becomes more of a passion when other people start to believe in you when it transitions from this crazy idea and you guys have graduate degrees and you've got loans and when all of a sudden when it starts selling and other people start believing in you and then you start to develop your team and other people start like wanting to work for you and quitting their jobs and then you're responsible for them making a living and that then it's really becomes a you know. Yeah Ashley I'm interested in. You have a new company that you started. You obviously sold stacy's. You're not involved with the company formerly anymore. You you've got. The new company called be bold energy bars. You've got a juice Bar Nita Massachusetts near to where you live. This is a startup all over. Obviously the stakes are different because you are financially secure. It's not a maker break but of course you want it to work and you want it to be successful. Do you have some of that? Same kind of anxiety and energy you did when you were starting stacy's now with be bold is is there some overlap in that feeling yes. I'm at my juice bar and I'm selling all of these bars. You know the handmade in the back with the mixer once again. It's I didn't start anything big. We got a mixture going in the back and mix press and package and I have to say. It's no less nerve wracking. Starting another company especially now like now people expect something from the pressures on. Yeah the pressure is on and when we reached out to some of the people that worked with us at the PITA chip company and said. Do you want to become a part of the team and we started to get people now our COO. She was with quaker and with Jim Beam and now she called her up and we said well. We're starting this company and to think about it. Take a week. She talked to your husband. Two days later she called us back and she said. I'm in well and when she I mean like that's a real like I keep thinking of real job and she's quitting her real job to come with us and you know and do this nervous about it and not only that. But it's like hey you know what it gave us this other sense this additional sense of confidence and belief that we can do this. We can do this again. And even when my brother came on board? And he's just sitting in the juice bar watching these people buying these bars and buying these bars. He's my number one believer so be bold helbig want do you want it to be. You wanted to be doing what I love to do now again so again. There is no exit strategy. We just want to have a a refrigerated bar. And I almost feel felt remiss just selling it in my local juice bar and having so many people love it and then not putting it out on the market. Because everybody's going to love it. They are called be bold bars. This is Stacey Madison. She is the founder of Stacy's pita chips. Thank you so much for being here. Appreciate it so much. It's been great having
Her Dark Plans: Stacey Castor
"Talk about Stacey Castor. Who was born? Stacey Daniels and she was born in we'd sport which is a little town just twenty miles from Syracuse. Her Dad was a car salesman. Stacy had assistant brother named Darcy and Jamie off. Three of these kids went to school in the weeds. Port Public School System. His sister became a nurse. Her and her brother worked for large toy company. Now Stacy had plans to become a lawyer or maybe a paralegal but in his senior year in high school. She met and fell in love with twenty four year old guy and that kind of derailed all of her plans. It did so this guy. Is Mike Wallace? This was a good looking guy. Here's the life of every party. And he was the first guy who wasn't turned off by Stacy's height of six feet. Well in her mind yeah in her own. Mind our own mind. She felt like that was really not liked by the guys that she was that tall in. Uh this was a little bit of a strange situation anyway and not just because of the six seven eight year age difference. Mike had been married before he'd been married to Stacy's third cousin. Nancy I had to look up. What a third cousin meant and that is people who are related at the level of their great great grandparents. That's barely related. But anyway that's distant but she did know her. Yeah well I mean if you live in. The same area sure should be acquainted with absolutely now. That can time a little bit Nancy. Who was mixed first wife? She become pregnant with another guy's child in nineteen. Seventy nine is back when she and microbes seventeen so make an answer got married and they raised two children together. When was his stepdaughter renee? And they had a biological son James that Nancy and Mike's Marriage was just disaster. You know you could have kind of predicted that the coach you while they fought a lot and Mike was in and out of jail for his partying ways he had. Dui is and even had domestic violence charges so even though Mike had been abusive to her. Nancy always defended him and she would claim that he had a big heart but he was just raised in a family with some generational domestic violence so basically saying he was a product of his environment. well a lot of times. That's the case not always right right. Hopefully people can break away from that but I think it usually does take some self awareness and some therapy and it seems to me to be kind of an easy way out of things. Yeah you can say well. I'll blame it on my parents or my upbringing. Well it can be a cop out. Yeah for sure so after six years together. Nancy and Mike did get divorced. No big surprise there but it was just in time for Mike to fall in love with another high school senior and that was stacey he barks. O School. Seniors doesn't he. Yeah and it didn't matter if he was a high school senior anymore. He still liked them. Route so stacey and Mike Got Together he was working as a setup operator at mcquaid international. Pretty good job. This company manufactured Heating Cooling and building management equipment right in nearby Auburn so within minutes of meeting Mike. Stacey was already planning a life with him she wanted a wedding honeymoon and then a family with him and she thought they would spend the rest of their lives together but then stacy found out that she was pregnant just months after first. Having sex with Mike and Mike decided he wasn't interested in having another child so he broke up with stacy now of course that didn't stop her from having his child but she lived at home with their parents and she gave birth to her daughter. Ashley. According to friends and family stacy was a good mom in the beginning at least. She was madly in love with her baby. She was inseparable with Ashley and gave her all of her attention. And his Ashley grows up. We're going to see that Ashley. Her mother were really best friends to me. That's not the way to raise a child. Yeah but anyway well. Is there a way to be friends and still be the the parent line through definitely is yeah but if you stop being the parent and your only friend that's bad? I agree or if you're the best friend true true it's really not healthy for the Child. The child needs to go out and make their own friends with their pierce right. Got It but anyway. Stacy found out as many women do that. The bad boy party personality that had attracted her to her baby's father was really a negative when it came to settling down and raising a family together because Mike like to drink and go out with his friends but she was really into him and she didn't give up. She kept seeing Mike showering him with love and attention. And Eventually Mike Did Propose and gave Stacey and engagement ring and she was so happy here. If you look at the photos from Stacey Mike's Wedding Mike Looks Pretty happy pretty carefree. He had that thick dirty blond hair. Kinda longish big huge substantial mullet. Yeah that was one of those straight hair. Mullets that hangs down to like the shoulder. Blades serious mullet. Those were good And Stacey was thrilled about how the wedding when how everyone looked then. The wedding took place in her family home and there are lots of friends there to see her in her. A beautiful wedding dress. Yes so looks like everything's happily ever after to stacy at this point at this point and even with his ex wife. Nancy they gotta lock. Yeah they did. They even invited Nancy and her two kids over for Christmas. One year and Nancy was welcomed to drop off her kids with stacy and Mike for visits in their home. Mike had been in charge and quite abusive in his relationship with the Ansi but she noticed that he was very different with stacy. Stacy was the one in charge in her house. You know wearing the pants as they say and Mike really toed the line. Stacey was sharp young woman really pretty smart and she knew what she wanted to get done and she did it. Still Mike like to go out drinking and he even did some drugs but it seemed like he was really good to stacey when he was home. Andy worked so he provided okay. I don't know yeah. I think there's still some difficulties if he really likes to go out and drink do drugs matter how he is does wife. When he's home right. Sure Yeah but there's no doubt anyone's mind back. Then that stacy was really in love with Mike. Oh absolutely mean to her. He was like a teen idol and she had a crush on him even after they'd been married for years also. Everyone agreed that Mike adored stacey so even though things weren't perfect it seemed to be working for a while but then now three years after Ashley was born. They had a second daughter named her. Bree now Mike Call Bree his little princess and it was obvious that he preferred gre- over Ashley now. This is kind of strange because he fathered apparently fathered both children right betsy. Some people started to question. If you know maybe might doesn't think he's Ashley's father because we know that one of the two children that he had with Nancy when it had been conceived with another man so maybe he remembered that and showed some coldness towards Ashley. Yeah maybe it was even not even a conscious thing right but later on. Stacey would say that Mike's Preference for bree was very hurtful to Ashley that there was an obvious lack of emotion between Mike and his oldest daughter so obvious that she even pointed it out and family photos. Stacey said that she tried to compensate for the lack of fatherly. Love by spending as much time with Ashley as possible so their relationship really went beyond that of a mother and a daughter and they were more like best friends. But you know Ashley didn't remember it that way. She didn't remember feeling rejected by her. Dad are seeing him prefer her sister. She had happy memories of her dad from when she embry were little girls. So when we think about this when we go into talking about her crimes we might realize that. Stacy was kind of playing this up for her own reasons. If share so when stacy and my gut married she worked as an ambulance. Dispatcher and Mike was a mechanic they managed but they didn't have an excessive amount of money didn't do vacation sir other big indulgences. They lived in a two story house near the junior high and high schools in a nice working class neighborhood Mike Stepdaughter. Renee moved in with them now. Rene was pretty rebellious at this point. She was getting into trouble. Nancy Thought Mike might be able to straighten her out. But that didn't happen. Rene continue to have problems and it became apparent that this living situation wasn't gonNA work out. Stacey insisted that rene go back to her mother's house in her mind she was a bed influence on the other kids Ashley and Bree. Yes as she was definitely giving preference to her own biological daughters. Yeah definitely but rene really remembered her time with the Wallace family quite fondly. She had been growing up in trailers with her mom and the Wallace House. Even though wasn't great was okay. After Stacy sent her away she felt hurt and rejected and there was no further contact in fact she never saw Mike again. And she didn't see Stacy Ashley. And Bree until Mike's funeral by the time Ashley a preteen. The marriage is on the rocks. Both Mike and Stacey had been unfaithful to each other. They fought
Why Netflix Turned To Junk
"I used to spend hours in blockbuster video a week stack of movies for the weekend box. Milk Duds box red. Mine's spread is good times. Oh yeah but all good things etcetera etcetera blockbuster died and a lot of the reason had to do with net flicks. Netflix meant that. You could have on demand movies and TV shows but you did not have to leave your house. Also no milk debts. Yeah everything has trade but Netflix was on top for years and then something happened stuff started kind of vanishing from net flicks and the vanishing started slowly. Show here movie there. And then it became a full on exodus now. Dozens of shows drop away every month. Net flicks recently lost friends. The sense cocoa the star wars movies pulp fiction. The reason Karma Capitalism Karma. I like that idea up. Competition that is the answer the movie studios and networks that own these shows and movies are taking them back because they are launching their own streaming services Disney. Cbs HBO ESPN and B. C. Warner yet and if your net flicks you might be worried that this is going to be a death knell because all your stuff is going to disappear your increasingly like blockbuster video right. It's like real blockbuster. Video you're losing readings and a bunch of competing. Video stores are opening up next door. Richard Cooper is the research director at on Peer Analysis which specializes in media research. He's net flicks realized it was going to survive. It was going to have to make a big pivot. Changing really who? They are from a stream of other people's content to studio in their own right. Because how do you stop losing all of your content? Make some of your own content and that meant Netflix. Had To essentially become a movie studio and TV network and it had to do that fast because it is bleeding that content by lead to start building those assets as quickly as possible and they need to build substantial assets and what I mean by that is critically acclaimed film and TV content as well as popular film and TV. Content has been doing just that. They've made big budget. Lavish shows Oscar Bait type stuff. Like the Irishman and marriage story. Irishman was. Your favorite. Right has so so many feelings but it was so long anyway. Don't give me sidetracked on the Irishman. They also made marriage story the crown the series when they see S. They've got a big sci-fi film coming out starring Will Smith they're also cranking out popular crowd pleasers stranger things when Paul chose goop series queer eye cheer and tons of filler. Like dozens of romantic comedies. Many of which seemed to be about. Sassy independent women who marry princes has a whole genre. Netflix you've not seen fads not come across. But here's the thing about all of this content. It costs a lot of money to make. I mean a lot a lot. We've calculated spent just as ten billion dollars. I was pretty floored. Netflix has taken on more than ten billion dollars. Worth of debt to make all these shows. And here's the thing. Last year net flicks made less than two billion dollars in profit. So how is net flicks paying for all of this after all its main source of income is the monthly subscription fees and it has to keep those low because there is so much competition out there and if you think of all of those twelve alarm subscription fees thank you? Add Up But no they can't find him sort of this. Simply through subscription fees they have issued quarterly debt mainly through the the side of junk bonds junk bonds. It all comes back to junk bonds on this show really. It does nexus funding. It's movies with junk bonds. Stranger things junk bonds. The Cram Junk Bonds Stacy's favorite movie the Irishman junk bonds. It is like a house of cards. That was junk. Bonds to net flicks is literally become
Banking on Voice - ENACOMM & Bank Independent
"Us about about the project and so what what does the Alexa skill that you guys have developed do? And what was the? What was the thinking behind? When we first started our conversations with an accom- we didn't know what to expect. We didn't even know what to do with really St- I think Stacy said it best. Is that so we started with the thought of? How can we take our typical telephone banking system? That's that technology has been around for four. Seems like forever and so we were like. How do we repurpose that into modern technology and modern use cases so partnering together with an Economy Fintech provider? They are really at true partnership here. We were the very first one to come out with a fully functioning Alexis skill in the community bank space. Now some of the larger institutions the international banks that are housed here in America or even some of the couple of super regionals they were already doing some of the s but really we felt like our customers were longing for that as well to be able to say. Hey if a bank of America or chase would have this type of service. Why can't wait? I see we have the same type of access to your systems so they came from a customer. Need they actually the customs approach to and also this. Will you a proactive and thought well? We need to get ahead of this before they do. It was really more proactive. Because of our customer base being very tech savvy and especially our newest market which is the Huntsville Alabama market. We felt like we need to make sure that in order for us to compete against the larger institutions especially from a tech perspective. We needed to be proactive in this space. So when I say fully functioning that's the differentiation between us and some of the other banks or credit unions that have that they may have an Alexa skill. But it's more informational sharing like where are we wears locations. What's our hours of operation? We really wanted it to be truly as said an extension of our other tools that we offer to art whether it'd be mobile or online or telephone so they log in and get account information for me. Personally I've got a college aid's daughter and so was the question we get from her. Hey Dad I need some money so then I can go and just by walking through the house. Tae Alexa Transfer money from account to my daughter's account so those are some of the use cases that we have and we're continuing to expand that working on some other use cases right now to expand as far as card management for the debit cards. The credit cards and those kind of things as we continue to move forward. I see okay focused on the the most common actions that people form on their accounts festival implemented those and then now you looking for the more advanced features those in as well. That's great okay. Great Stacey tells about the project from your side then what what was it like to Cra? Alexis go four bank whether any particular challenges that you had to face. And what advice would you give to someone? Who's WHO's looking to do the same. Whose is taking on a project to the signs. That's a great question because there is a specific answer that it's really got nothing to do with how we build a skill it has to do with multiple parties involved in the thing you have to look out for the difficulties run into is the larger companies involved Talked by Google Amazon Right Amazon. The company that is the keeper in the approver of these skills and so's Google on their side. I will go to that side of the house but Amazon. This is the first real step into a retail banking application type of thing right in my past i. I did this for Mobile APPs with apple when they first had their APP store open. Add it for banks and it's the same type of learning curve with working with Amazon going through the approval process Amazon not understanding how everyone thinks they understand how a bank works. And I'll say that just exactly the same. Everyone believes they understand. How Bank works when you work with. Community banks. That'S NEAT. Learn how they actually work and each one little different from another one and you can try to define a process for which you wanNA bring on these skills right for Elixir. Whatever but these skills for getting the weather has total different requirements than the skill for your banking and we had compliance issues. We have enrollment issues. We have Lincoln account issues. We have all these things you have to do and be compliant with on our side and actually I was walking Amazon through the process. Of sometimes you have to change the way you're thinking because this is not a weather APP. This is not a joke. Gap does not attribute this is banking and there are some things. The banks are already doing to link accounts that may be at to adjust your expectations. How Link Accounts Right? That's just one example and going through the approval process with Amazon and it different iterations. That's really probably. The most complex part of working new technologies into banks is yet. There's a third party provider like Amazon or Google. Who has to approve these things and has certain expectation on their side of how the system will work in. We have to really Kinda match the expectations and the realities. What a bank needs right to? Does that mean that there were those pushback on the on the platform side on the new Google side because he went meeting standards was it the other way round. What did you need things from them? They weren't providing up front. And you have to be kind of both. It's kind of both so the expectation that you're starting from scratch realized that a bank might already have a method for linking accounts for example in Kelly States. Bank independent already. Lincoln accounts through methodology in order to enable their voice banking on the phone system for that and so there are some things that instead of confusion users like it's a brand new system to create new pin number. You all this new stuff. Sometimes Caesar let them allow them to use what they already have and so it was sort of both. We have more things than they expected. Amazon's system wasn't really built to take an existing system. Like what we had at the same time. You know there are some things we have to come up to snuff on on voice engagement right conversational banking conversational. Technology is different than a menu driven technology in Kelly. Had said we're reiterated extending what we're doing on the voice baking side telephone banking but it's extending the feature functions but the way you engage with it is different. So there's a learning curve on our side to to make sure you have the conversational structures. Correct your engagement that so it was both sides. This is very typical of bringing in a new technology into an existing market place. That has its own high level of rules right. There's a high bar a ruling compliance and you have another system as brand new that is trying to create rules of compliance rights. And so we put those two together in. This is typical this. This is exactly how it was with mobile APPS. And I think that's what you're gonNA see. It's GonNa have that ramp right now. It's early in the curve for adoption and over time as voices getting across all these other channels and the software whether it's Amazon or Google on all these channels whether it's in your smart tv or on your phone it's going to accelerate. The friction is gonNA remove overtime when it sounds like they would have lended as as much from the experiences as you guys have. That's going to streamline things for everyone the projects that come along in the future exactly my question around that was about the the iteration of this is kind of new and we got a lot of the ground truth from the feedback from users and looking at the data of course financial transactions quite private and a bank's not going to want to publicize those will hand them over to supplies in the same way as maybe health data. So how did you get that signal back? That's a find out whether the user interaction was working. And how did you guys work together to to solve that problem like you said? One of the biggest concerns with this was around security and especially traditional banking where we're not always the the ones that are willing to step out and do things so from especially from security and privacy perspective because that is paramount to who we are as an institution to ensure that we are taking care of our customers and making sure that their information secure safe and that they are comfortable not only them but then also with a stacey said our regular regulators and auditors and those things pile up over and over again to make sure that that we have the right security protocols in place and so that was some learning curve for both US and Amazon that we all had to mature and continue to grow as far as making sure that we have the right information we partner with our processing companies Jack Henry and associates and so they do a fantastic job of having a pathway for us to get to our information securely safely as well so with our connectivity points between in a calm and Jack Henry that is very tightly controlled. We manage it with monitor it. We reporting we have security protocols that are in place between all of us to ensure that is safe for our customers. Massoni went to Jack Henry Do. Where did they come into this? Yeah Sure Jack. Henry is the company that houses our customer information as a whole and so they have an open banking platform that we're able to connect to and be able to partner with the fantasy like the end of the world to be able to safely securely have access to their customer account information you can anonymous data and Sharon Saddam. Okay right so there's a way to share it without revealing the details of the people. Are I in this talk about the voice banking how it's being used and I saw one example on your website believe about bank independent Kuzma? Who's using the Alexa skill right now? It's eighty nine years old. That's fantastic Zurich. Tell us about that. And the the interest made on his or her life. Sure after we went live with this we were live several lines and we really wanted to see who was using and honestly we knew because this is new technology. We weren't expecting a hockey stick type of acceptance and usage of this tool out of the gate and so it has been a slow growth and kind of leveling but again we wanted to be out there early and this is exactly why because you know. The mission of our institution is to make a positive difference in people's lives and this is a prime example. Where we've done that. So as we begin to look one of our most active users we reached out to Kim specifically into. Can you tell us why you're using it? And the first words out of his mouth. Were you changed my life. And which can you explain that in so this gentleman was eighty nine years old? He had macular degeneration so from his perspective. He couldn't really manages finances. Just because of the vision issues vision issue. And so now he's like you now have control of my personal finances again by doing voice banking and he can control that here. What's going on? What's going on manages money in the way that he wants to be able to manage his
Gaining Financial Dignity with Stacey Flowers
"What I would love to know. Because I'll tell you how I discovered you but I I think it would be no. I'll just say how I discovered you because I think it was an act of God. I always feel like the universe conspires to make things come together. I was watching a youtube video about. I don't even remember what. And then you know how youtube serves up little tiny videos on the side. I saw your head talk and clicked on it and literally within twenty minutes of senior Tedtalk. I had creeped on everything about you online. I had sent you a DM on instagram. And ask you to speak at Rice. And the reason I tell that story for you but also to our listeners is I think that women struggle so much with putting themselves out there and wanting to show off their work or acknowledging it and if you hadn't put that video on your youtube we wouldn't be having this conversation so it's super super important to talk so much about power to stand in your own power but I'm gonNA assume that your origin story is did not start from the place that you are now. So will you tell listeners who you are and what you do and kind of the story of how you got to where you are absolutely so what? I tell people in the morning when I do. My show is that my name is stacey flowers real last name because nobody believes me and I make a living through talking. Just like Oprah I do it from the stage and from the sage I talk about happiness empower also. Do It via coaching with me. Coaching women to be more amazing than I do. Avia influencing and that's kind of weird sort of our story intersected with you finding the Tedtalk and then finding other content so on the influencing side on Youtube I've been documenting restoring my financial journey after like this big huge monumental public failure in my company Started with me making about eight hundred dollars a month working part time at cafe to now earning about ten K. A month net working part time in my company and the like to kind of give people that background because it gives you the scope of like how I am as a person in terms of the work that I'm putting out but I think the other thing that's really going on in my life right now. That gives a little bit. More of the backstory is that I'm a mom of nearly eighteen year old human being which feel crazy when you ever seen. Stacy you need to go. Look at her instagram right. Now you will not believe. It's possible that she has an eighteen year old yet like I I know it I see it. I barely believe in so like I'm in full blown like empty nest syndrome slash. How is my child almost like legally able to Mary and another another? He wants to like it. Just it doesn't make any sense. Oh I'm in this very interesting space right now in my company and in my personal life with regards to those two things being there and then the last thing that I love for people to know is that I'm an eight because the deeper we dive into on the Graham. I don't know if you do any Graham. I think are talked about the queen of India. Graham it is our favorite conversation here at the office and I feel like when you know. Someone's number you're like okay. We Are you an eight seven. You gotta be an eight. Yes eight seven. Yeah Yeah. I'm an eight seven but I like to tell people that because before I knew that I was in eight like I really didn't have a framework to sort of organize a lot of my experiences. That led up to this moment but the minute. I took it I was like what? Yeah now my life makes sense to me. So it's been it's been really exciting so that's kind of a little bit about who? I am now and like the work that I do now. It's super interesting about that too is that. I don't know a lot of women who are eights who will confidently claim that number. And if you don't if y'all know what we were speaking in a language right now if you please a I feel like I've talked about ten million times. You can go google it but if you understand any Graham you understand. The eight is the challenger which oftentimes gets a bad rap but also the eight is a world changer. Mother Theresa wasn't a Martin Luther King. Junior was a there are so many powerful AIDS but not a lot of women. Of course your your whole thing is about power. Not a lot of women will own that. What was that journey like for you? Where you immediately like. Hell yes or did it take you a moment kind of come to terms with it. It took me a moment to cut so privately. I was like yes I know. Why why him? But it was a very private thing because then I was like Oh my God like all of the things that I thought as a kid. They're true and like now people like people are going to know and so it took me a little bit but like what I like about. The Graham is a gives you like the range of how you how you are when you're at your best and then how you are when you're under stress. And so when I looked at it I was just like you know stacey all of these years that you've been trying to pretend that you're not an eight this is what's making it hard for you like this is what's making people have a bad reaction to you being a woman who is as powerful as you actually are. What would happen if you just Kinda show up in your full eight minutes likes what would happen if you did that. And honestly that's sort of like what happened from with my tedtalk going out like that happened before I had my big fall and so it's just like that was already out there so when I started documenting my financial journey which was really hard because it was such a contrast to the experience doing a tedtalk and traveling around the world. It was like I have these two really contracting experiences. But I'm like if I'm going to talk about it I'm GonNa talk about it completely in that directly came from me wanting to own my Eytan and being like even in this space where I'm starting over at the bottom. I'm still just as powerful as I was when I was standing onstage delivering that Tedtalk and since making that decision has been just like the best thing ever. That's why I always like to mention it because it's just like when you know that at the core this is who you are it's like why would you why fight it like why. Why rail against it anymore in the more and more of embraced it. The more opportunities like rise have shown up that I've been able to say yes absolutely I will surely come to your stage and do my thing like versus me being like. Oh pick me choose me. It's like I don't have that sort of thing happening in my life is much anymore. It's more people are noticing me and they're like Oh and I'm like yeah been here like but it's like the reason you didn't know because I was afraid to really embrace the nature of it because as you said most women are not aids and if they are as it's not it's not an easy thing to do because people automatically assume that we're GONNA be like this aggressive like zero tolerance type personalities. Just like no. I'm all woman. I'm just a different type of woman with a whole lot of
Shot for Shot - One on Ones
"All right before we dive into talking about one on ones. What our one on ones like. How would you describe what a one on one is? And what are they four. Obviously it's a meeting. That's but the point of them would mean I'm kind of curious 'cause I memes and meetings and say oh it could be a medium. I Dunno maybe probably out there right so the meeting. It's a meeting. Yes there's usually two people one on one Also not necessarily with your manager. That's a typical meeting. The one on one with your manager but yeah it could be with another like a colleague another engineer. Maybe a partner that you work closely with third base At the most common thing as meeting with your team leader your manager whatever their title is and it's a it's like a check in hot to kind of for both sides like how are you are you doing. Are there questions for me? How can I help you like? There's kind of A. It's a two way dialogue and it's just a good check in so that when you eventually have. Let's say a performance review at the end of the year. You kind of know where your ad like constantly like. You're always checking in on that. So there's no surprises at the at the end of the year can think one of the main differences. Like what you're saying between that and like another meeting is it's unstructured or at least the ones that I've been in. I don't know that I've ever really been in a one on one with an agenda. As -sarily sort of just like a good time to put time facetime on the calendar with someone that you need to be sort of maintaining some sort of relationship with. I sometimes have had an agenda. Yeah Yeah it's not too bad because sometimes you're just like bullets of like what do i WanNa talk about. Mainly it's been for my own remembering. What am I supposed to talk this person but not with everyone I find? I actually prefer the casual like meeting. What's up stock? Also be the manager with someone who reports to me. I look at it as like a try really hard not always good at it of not been the one talking like I. I want to look at it as a way for the person coming into the meeting is to be able to share what they wanNA talk about. Sometimes that might have to share some seen some changes happening or who knows out or ask a status update which hate doing as well. I really like Stacey said. It's a two way dialogue and kind of what you were mentioning Ryan. Yeah it definitely. Is that kind of dedicated. Time where you wouldn't necessarily feel comfortable going to the hallway and be like Hey WanNa know how I'm performing and stuff I feel. It's a really nice like dedicated time that your manager can well assuming we're talking about manager magic and set aside time for you and really like check in with. You is actually really interesting because I love how you don't have. You don't necessarily have an agenda. Actually my manager kind of says you know this is your time use agenda if I have stuff I will call out what the agenda is for that you know but it's really like this. Time is your time but natural you kind of have to run the meeting yourself so you as in the engineer Yes yes. Yes or his designer or individual contributor. I see what do you put on your agenda who me. I mean not very specific. Right but like in generalities like you're having a problem with stacy stealing my thoughts. Go back at least at least for me. I I've definitely seen the value of one wins a lot more. I used to ruin not know what to use them for the way I've used them is really sharing so things that I feel. I've been doing because I feel sometimes manager doesn't get the visibility of the work that I get to do all the time. He's always following me. That'd be really creepy. But he is so many meetings that sometimes it's Isis share. Some the wins that I have and then also if I'm ever curious like how performing or what it could be doing. Better try to ask for that feedback but usually a two-way dialogue. Always checking in. That's great. I think some team leads. Yeah they have. Maybe a lot managed have a huge number of people who reports them too. So it is I would imagine it would be hard to keep track of all the little wins or things that you feel like you did while on during the week like they may not know so. That's like that's awesome. It is a good opportunity to just like promote yourself. Talk about the things that have gone well but also maybe things that could have gone better. Tm also looking for ways that you can get help from someone were advice on shares. How long you typically meet with someone one on one three to four hours while tens of meeting? No that's a nightmare like home. Goodness and then what's The cadence very very? I must have a small brain. 'cause I can't even like half an hour usually and like sometimes once a week. I've had some teammates at one at once. Like WanNa do that once a week but I almost feel like sometimes it might be too much depending on your team size like if your team lead is at your St Lucie. Do stand ups. If you're saying that Saturday in kind of have an idea like what you're doing maybe once we get too much 'cause you're like are already kind of around everything that's happening but I think every two weeks seems good for me like I like that cadence. That's usually typically what I've scheduled for even minor Especially as my team has gotten larger. It's been like okay. Well let's easier to Kinda space them out but also I want people to not wait for the one on one like if there's something that comes up throw time on the calendar or just grabbed me because that's important as well. I meet with engineers on my team. I meet with my manager. I meet with other managers in the company or people that are partner with and so the cadence can actually differ and even the time like my manager for the longest time we were meeting on our weekly it was kind of a status and for my own personal growth but also like sometimes just talking about team oriented things especially when it was just him in managing the team. That was very valuable is kind of a mix of strategic but yeah it varies. I think sometimes I meet with someone once a month or maybe once a quarter like XIV even had some littering cadences like that. Yeah I guess well I mean it really depends on the person sort of like toe to Ryan's point Like with my manager. It's half hour re two weeks and even sometimes like that doesn't feel quite enough but I mean half hour can go by really quickly especially as in my situation. If you're new to the company that I have a lot to learn about how we operate and also there's a lot of questions about you know just general career stuff but when it comes to sort of anybody else I sort of do it in like an ad hoc way especially with sort of like relationships and I'm building on the team it's really more informal. It's kind of like just enough time to walk across the street and get a coffee. Walk around the block come back and that can that can actually be really productive. Even if it's short he I think it's a good way to like even just doing like that is more casual thing is. You're also you're building trust in getting to know someone in that's like a one on one can be very valuable for that interesting. Mars to going back to your saying like be new to accompany and I think that's another time where I almost like over scheduled When someone's new because there are so many questions and it's like a lot of times like someone will have a legit bullet list of agenda. It's like I have all these questions on my great. Let's go through them so it might even be like once a day or maybe I do schedule an hour or like. There's a couple times or I'll do more especially early on in the first couple of weeks. Yeah definitely have you have any of you like narrow down what I guess you talked about how you like half an hour might be too little like when I when I moved from every note to twitch was interesting because I had a one week half an hour and moved to every two weeks one hour of and I. I personally like the two week cadence more because I feel like there's just a lot more to talk about. Yeah the half an hour ones is like. Oh we just talk last week and I I at least me didn't feel like there's enough meat sometimes to talk about stuff graduate. We don't really go to an hour. That's why when you said three hours I was like Oh goodness Nice though. Setting that time aside even if you don't fill it up. I mean it's exactly reasonable. Hey we don't really talk about like we always over time. Yeah but sometimes it can be really hard to get time with your manager or really with anyone on the team depending on like what's going on or how your team is structured. So that actually sounds pretty nice just to have that hold their. Yeah Yeah and there have been rare times where we have hidden our And that's because there was a lot to talk about the most timely just a little more than half an hour so perfect you know. I've never really too sure everyone's late to the meeting. Every company has the traditional five minutes. You know twenty five minute meeting. And that's that's when it gets really really

"Have you here on this show because as you pointed out that one of the things that I've been spending a lot of time on re-sent knee is being here in my office studio recording podcasts cash and t and doing all the fun being with my new passion project and I have a lot of those not sure what. He's whispering what isn't yours spring names and so for those of you who don't know Lily. One of our foreign exchange students that we host stead last year. We ended up hosting her. Because of the displacement that took place in the middle of the semester and it was really a blessing to have had that unchannelled opportunity not to host. Stand in as parents. You know to her while she was here. I'm Joshua and I'm sorry Josh and Lily connected very well because she's so easy going and just goes with the flow but she was told Tall at enough you'd say tomboy but just very easy going Lily Eh. If you're listening to this which probably send this episode to You you do. Eleven may feel. It's funny because in the beginning when she came because she is from an Asian country tree and depending on the culture sometimes they may not be as emotional and so when I would reach out to give her husband in the beginning. That was just not something that was embraced heartily and readily and I'm a very embracing person and eventually over over time you know. She came to accept that. That's the type of people and parents we would be so. I'm glad you brought Babe and love what you said earlier earlier because I believe understanding how to approach prioritizing your spouse has to do with understanding your your spouse on standing what language they speak and speaking that language and meeting them where they're at because we have different perspectives perspectives. As men and women. Maybe it is that you've chosen to spend more time doing ministry staff or chosen to spend more time the homeboy if you are someone that loves all the sports in instead of spending what little time that you know you may have aside from time given to work you. You have that time to choose what you're going to dedicate that span of time too so if you choose to dedicate that time to someone else are something else other than your wife or your husband. It's sending a message is definitely sending a message that spouses not as valuable. And so. That's something that you come to realize over time with maturity. I may not be excited about football or excited about some of the changes. Chains that naturally as a girly girl. I wouldn't be excited about which is because I remember especially in different times of our marriage where you you would say that. Where was I a flow as away doing my craft sore my Bible journaling or whatever else and the fact that I was home the entire time while you were home but we weren't in the same room it seemed as though I didn't value that period of time when we could have been together even though you you would be doing something else like watching a football game in so I realized just the idea the concept offs being together in the same space and me in a way just wanting and desiring to be being together which is something that everyone values especially when they're not living together are they not yet married? They want to soak up every moment that they can't together because they don't live together and so once you get married in your living together gather what changes you should still is ir and crave all your spouse without some things that clearly clearly change when you go from not living together to living together moon clearly. There's something change you know. You smell each other when you go to the bathroom smelly Shirley no so. There's a lot of changes changes go from living the other two not living the other obviously pretty big change. Do you know the water jerked all over shower in all over the floor and all that kind of stuff you know obviously your date and you put your best foot forward when you get married it gets Israel you know you start to see who that other person really is so you know your day. Obviously you're you're trying to win the person you know so you're your a game on but once you get married it's it's easy to to relax and just kind of not more complacent as the guy down here. They're not going anywhere so sometimes you know it is easier to prioritize the things over your spouse so nothing nothing. It's kind of natural that when you spend all of your waking hours you know with one person that while at the end of the day I'm GonNa go the home to that person so yeah I WANNA go hang out with my homeboys because at the end of the night. I'm going home to that person who is going to be see there every night for the rest of my life. Oh yeah there's some of that goes into but at the same time it's a balancing act certainly a think within within the scope of marriage you have to understand that each person is individual. Each Person Is Different H.. How different responsibilities they have different interests but you? You both have made the decision to come together. And to fuse those differences in individualities into a common goal into the common pursuit and ultimately the individual things are not as important as the common pursuit is because if the individual things remain the the focus than the common pursuit will never be accomplished and as we continue the journey boards common pursued. If those individual goals remain rain at the forefront then will never achieve anything common because each of US although we were married and were doing our Thing or whatever you know how the young kids say what we do as we continue to work. If that commerce pursued is not hasn't become a truly Julia common pursuit then we're really just working on similar tracks but never really coming together for a couple in a relationship to surely be insane as the years. Go by being human. You want to feel as though as time goes on that we've been able to accomplish greater the things you do become almost like a hamster on a wheel if you realize that you're fighting the same battle than going further along in division the You've put in such a wonderful way to envision. How as a couple and as a unit as one that you are heading towards building your family or accomplishing specific goals freshly in an individualistic society? That we live in in one of the things as you mentioned. Earlier that it is so much easier to get fulfillment and void that you may be feeling as a result in your spouse is not taking the time to prioritize you in the way that you think or desire to be higher ties and that is going to take communication on both parts because men and women see things differently as we go playing fiend for ourselves over the years through the book that we read in just having discussions with other couples then in the ministry to realizing that really do wear the blue sunglasses and women wear the pink lines in you know we see things through different lenses in have different perspectives. But we do have to lease makes the difference having a common ground. You have the same faith. And that is the foundation for which you're able to build from where able to come together and see eye to eye and work towards a common goal and purpose switch at the end of the day for us as believers is that Great Commission Spreading The Gospel Wherever Week down in whatever we do do you know all.
