"It's like from another planet. Oh you know what that reminds me. somebody dm me about what we were talking about with loki. It's called Retro-futurism o that makes sense. That's cool styles called. That's what we're trying to figure that out. That makes perfect sense. I know it does because it's it's future but it's what the future would be thought of in the past. Yes it's its own timeline. So they can basically do whatever they want with. And we've seen this before right. I mean we were talking about the different examples of. If i knew there had been like a name for it i just hit the nail head when he it was like future. Landon disneyland. that's exactly what the style Felt lights are reminded me of that movie. Yeah did i tell you. Guys the conspiracy theory controversy around the supplement in a see. Did i bring that up on the podcast that it's now banned because it was like a valid treatment is that Do so doug. What is nec- stamp for end. Cdl sistine thank you okay. So this is a supplement that's been sold as a supplement. Very inexpensive for over two decades. You could buy any supplement store online. It's delivered support supplements. It's just very common supplement that people have been taking forever all of a sudden the fda comes out and says this is now going to be a prescription band now. Their rationale is that was originally designed as a pharmaceutical. So that's what they're saying although it's been sold as a supplement for two decades it's extremely this and there's no problems of course you have it's been around forever. So here's the controversy. Here's a conspiracy theory studies. Were coming out showing. That nec could be a viable potential treatment for cove it So there were studies. Were showing that people with severe covid supplementing with supplement with nec and it would really reduce symptoms increase survivability so all sudden the fda slabs or the they pull it off the shelf crazy that that's the conspiracy but that's any competition to the vaccines is going to get or any competition to any drug volume from pharmaceutical companies. Well that's the thing to like. Have we gone back in in in finally admitted that hydrochloric win has some relevance in terms of treatment. Just because trump said it like everybody was against. Yeah that was actually. A studies came out that showed that for severe symptoms of covid. it seems like hydrochloric win Is got hauling thing. I saw with the like everything that went on.

"One of the things that i've thought a lot about you know. Obviously since the pandemic is companies like amazon amazon probably being the number one non government entity have become an essential service in the united states if we think about the pandemic and we think about how much most of us relied on amazon. You know when people bitch about the company for one reason or another. Maybe there's legitimate things to you know but this is a private company started by an entrepreneur. Who how old is the company now. John twenty five years roughly twenty five years. Roughly twenty five years and in twenty five years becomes an essential service. Not unlike the internet itself or electricity. Or do you think. I'm over my skis. On that assessment. I think You touch on several really important points there. The i is.

It takes literally two decades for them to really become the juggernaut that we know of right and i was an amazon for four years early. Two thousand two through late two thousand five stock was essentially flat all four of those years. It was flat for about four years. After i left jeff believed and acted exactly the same then as he does now. And that's where these leadership principles the fire of where these things were born from wasn't in good time.

The Army Is Expanding Allowed Hairstyles For Women

"For years, Most women in the U. S Army were required to wear their hair short or pinned back into a very tight bond that time has now passed. Earlier This year, the Army began allowing women who spent most of their day away from the field freedom from the bun. And this month, the army updated that changed to allow female soldiers. A little more freedom. I actually started Tolo practice braiding my hair because I was so excited that we were going to be able to braid our hair and wear ponytails that Sergeant Nickel Pierce, who works at Fort Sill in Oklahoma, she's been able to wear braids and ponytails since January, and now she's able to wear them untucked so long as they don't go past her shoulder blades, thanks to the update to the updated grooming policy. Major Terry Taylor, stationed at Fort Stewart in Georgia has enjoyed not having to chemically relaxed her hair because locks, braids, twists and cornrows can come together in one or two braids or a ponytail and still meet regulation with lax. There is a style called barrel rolls. And which are hair can be rolled back. Taylor usually pins up the ends, but now she can leave them free if she wants very professional and appearance very neat. And it's very user friendly because that style can last at least two weeks, so that allows me to not have to manipulate my hair is much no loose ends from Major Farren Um, A Campbell in Silver Spring. Maryland. Yes, so in the Army on pretty much known as the bald major within my unit on the only bold female she suffered hair damage and loss after years, wearing her hair in a tight bun. And she's not alone. Many black women soldiers reported having that experience Major Campbell says she's happy. The U. S Army allows her to be bald by choice and do shave my head and it's been a very freeing change within a regulation. It's not just comfort here. Thick hair buns make it difficult for women to wear their helmets properly, making it low on the eyes, sometimes obscuring vision. Ah, problem when you have to aim your weapon. We've all mentioned. Some of these things were long overdue that Sergeant Major Jennifer Francis of the U. S. Army Institute for Surgical Research at Fort Sam in Houston, Texas, She was on the panel that gave input to leadership about updating the grooming guidelines. We are an army and we can't necessarily do everything civilians are doing so we've got to figure out what's best for the Army. And its people. Women now make up about 15% of the U. S. Army, and about a third of those are black. Many see rules against certain hairstyles as outdated at best discriminatory at worst. Major Terry Taylor, now set to retire after two decades of service says how a soldier wears her hair when she's on base does not change her leaf aladi or her professionalism. Who's to say that a ponytail is not professional in appearance? Who's to say the locks are not professional in appearance as long as you can, probably where your headgear and look professional in your uniforms. I think that's what matters at the end of the day. The army now joins the Navy, the air Force and Space Force Yes, Space force when it comes to allowing loose

You should literally watch the clone wars thinking before darth maul and after darth maul when you when you watch them chronologically because story changes Everything gets moving forward the stuff that just sat teen the stuff with the mandalorian that we have at the end. You know all of this stuff. That happens happens because they bring darth maul back. The same exact thing happens in star wars rebels. You have pre darth maul and you have after darth maul now. The beautiful thing about that is you do get season two with a soka and aitor vader thing at the end of the apprentice but they had to make a decision going into season three. What are we going to do now. But they had darth maul in their back pocket. They could bring dr mollie and that changes season three. It makes him one of the most beautiful seat. Well he's at the end of season. Two right out of the apprentice where polling right. It's darth maul. Changes star wars rebels as much if not more than he changes the clone wars and then we go all the way back. Now that they bring back season seven of the of the clone. Worst they come back with that. And what does the story really that everybody wants to talk about. Cj mandalorian darth maul and with that. And and he's just a parakeet. Do they bring him into comic books. They do all this stuff. Darth maul has a massive impact. I think that's what your instincts are made But but i think that it's bigger than just his impact on this film. I'm thinking of his impact on the future star..

"Lucas went out to make russia Lucas had to take it from basically took it from the director to make the movie that he wanted to make an even that it's like what did he do. He i mean he injured his second. Death star you know a recycling Band as the technology was such that he could tell the kind of story that he really wanted to do And because he was george lucas at the time he made the three best movies of all time as everyone agreed at that time He can do whatever the hell he wanted did. Whatever the heck he wanted I think there's a lot of really interesting things that how a civilization fall from the smallest thing. I mean you know. Some guy has a reality. Tv show and couple years later. There's an insurrection in like that. But like or in this case. It's a you know. A trade dispute basically causes as an st. John's little section of the galaxy causes a entire republic to fall. I mean obviously. This is mike nations. How from how serene but like it's interesting. It's a gilded age. It's like things look really good. But there's a lot you know at the at the core of the janai of the core of the republic and that is really interesting. I think if i were semait like my feeling about phantom menace is also true for the prequels trilogy. I think it's a really really interesting story. Poorly tomes and i think that's why the clone wars is beloved. I think that's why there's a lot of fans Who are about your your. Your is ages. Who grew up with the prequels. And like it's the prequel. Trilogy is the best trilogy of all time. I think they're insane. But but that's my to be clear. That's my opinion and i think. Also it's one of those things where the reason why it's it resonates for so much when it gets as a. They were kids when they saw it and it was. It's a. It's a movie about space wizards intended for children but also the core of the story is actually very fascinating and it is very good So you can read a lot into those narratives and yes. So i think the the powdery. There's really cool so funny. Because i i never had a problem with the prequels when they were you know when i saw him in the theaters be it'd be they were. They were great. But i also was informed by the novelization because as crazy as this sounds today. The novelization came out about four or five days before the movies released in the theaters. And i pick them up. And i read them so i already knew the stories and i had all of the other things and it was much better. It was told much better in the novels..

"If felt like he went more to. We've got to build this new republic. It's more important than starting the rest of the jet. I order and so yeah i i liked it. It was it was. I think i liked it just because it was the you know the classic characters that we were used to from the original trilogy just being continued on I think there was that sense of familiarity with it that i liked. I mean nathan does make some good points in that. The characters were pawn was very similar but he. That's he's always you know he doesn't care about anything about it right exactly But he's right leah. it was interesting to see leah. as more of a force i actually liked that storyline. I kind of aiming. I wish they could've done more with that in the disney sequel trilogy but luke. I'm liking this. I'm okay. I like this. The the or the empire. Do i want it to replace disney canon but it is interesting to see that different perspective and i enjoy it. I can see. I can see better now. Y bands who grew up more like yourself with the trojans stuff verse Eu have a harder time accepting this new sequel children. Because the trilogy we got from disney they deal with the original cast of characters like lucon and and they throw in this whole new. Cast that you're supposed to start falling in love. With and of course for nathan tonight wasn't hard we had hardly any connection with any of the characters from the previous movies so we were like. Oh yeah we love read. That's that's why that's why they focus on new carriage s it wasn't for us got us on the original trilogy. Prequel era was for a new generation. It's probably part of the reason. Why the last i was. So controversial is You know han wasn't even he was dead. Obviously laya she suddenly wasn't she wasn't using the force in the force awakens but now she was when people who maybe have them reading or the empire. She should have been doing this a long time. And then you've got luke doing the complete opposite of what he's doing an heir to the empire he's completely ignoring the force in this while. Enter the empire. He's the greatest. Jed eye to ever exist so i can see why so. Many people like we're frustrated because it's not what they were used to. Yeah and i mean. That's also what i think. A lot of folks. I mean look i. I'm not gonna lie. I freaked out when the showed up. I was so glad so she. She's a nurse. So i every morning would get up at like a seven or eight Not even look at my phone. Get a cup of coffee and just watch star war. It was great. And i was so glad that like i got up early enough and i watched that. See the episode by myself and she called the right one the The credits ruling. Because i was shaking. I was i was so happy even though it was like we see like and again i love i love luke i so i can sit here and say like i love both But it was very much like seeing like..

"A number of reasons. But so you're saying you want him to be the thanos of star wars. So oh god no no no i 'cause i i like as he was handled and the mcu at all. Because what was sandwiches like i. I'll do anything to get these these stones. I did anything to get. These stones snap destroying our bright. That was his are character in the comic books. What do you think about this idea. With ron and everything i mean i'm just of course i've been that guy for the past three years. That has been lobbying for something. Something rebels just something else. And i was so excited. To hear thrones name mentioned in mandalorian season two. I was great. And then we got the announcement and i was ecstatic but there was one thing that i was very held back by. I'm like they need lars mikkelsen to play throat and they can't have anybody else because he has the voice just down i mean well. It's it's what we associated with the listening to the heir to the empire audiobook twentieth anniversary edition. It was mark thompson reading it. It was it was great. It was and you're listening to it. And i'm like voices just not the same. It's not. I have you guys. I think it's Just checking this year. I believe it is the original version. I believe it was read by dennis. Law was the original one. That's how i was exposed to the originally. I was listening to bat version within his. Did you like sound effects. Because of the effects in that in the denis lawson version audio trial ago orchestral tracks and and everything it was fully dramatized but it was really cool because it was all mark thompson doing the voices. He's pretty good with i when since it was. Since we're talking about it like your air the empire like ecg. You guys You were experienced the sequel trilogy first before you listen to this the Disney canon. I who like what is what your thoughts on like how han lucan layer were portrayed in that book That's a great question. I really do think that when they put into the new canon. I think that haunt is very similar from the empire to now. We got to think about the books as well. I mean bloodlines it. Sound in the exact same if felt like for a second there. They're picking up the same kind of breadcrumbs. I mean he. He decided to abandon the rebellion because he didn't want any. Yeah there's a lot of and then. He went to do racing which was awesome and then he was kind of just a freelancer now and so i felt like they portray. They're portrayed fantastic laya with strange specifically because we didn't know she really use the force the way she did. It was right there front and center in the empire. It's not an way equal rise. It's really the only thing that we know about that and so it was. It was really cool to see that. Luke it's weird because he feels more like a diplomat than jet. I master so. That's the only reason that kind of started to get disconnected. And i honestly from my perspective i grew of course grew up the the sequel trilogy rather than heir to the empire. I prefer the version of luke. We have now over the empire. Because i like to see the person that never gave up on the jet i order and i like that i mean while..

"A lot of things that happened in the prequel trilogy an attack on the colognes you know it's the ability to use the forces diminished. What does that mean in now. You're seeing the jet. I used the force if awesome. It's really awesome ways and you'll seventeen late there. We go so like you know you're like you're like oh okay. Now that puts it in chapter leaders also realize how far they fell and why you know how bulletin was able to take them down in that you know. That context really helps this series in a way that i don't think I think it helps the franchise in general in a way that the older public in the old days really didn't because look. I love republic. It's a great game but it is a fifth lord of the world destroyer and the biggest difference is basically like you're playing a character who used to be in las memory. spreads for twenty years. Right exactly but that was the biggest thing it's like. It was a you know. It had a lot of touchdowns that were evocative of the original trilogy. But didn't really add a lot new to the franchise and i feel like higher public based on what we've seen adds a lot to what we later. See in the in the films and also i think it raises. A lot of questions is a lot of little throwaway lions. You're like wait wait a minute. What does that mean like that. There are other empires before the republic. Way we right where they're gonna go with that. Yeah yeah so there's all there's a lot. I'm i'm i'm really excited about it And i also like selfishly excited about it because Elizabeth schafer who is the editor on light of the jet. I skipped my birthday party to edit. It is she's like. I can't make the party am working on a book. Couple is later the announced. I couldn't make the birthday party. And i'm like that's so i'm just i'm loving it. Awesome all these interviews padden. We've been talking about hot or higher public and everybody's been talking about. Oh my gosh. It's such a good book and like all this time. We walk away from the interview like man. I need to read this book man. I need to read this book. And i just i just don't read very much. That's just not my style. But i've gotta find time to read this book. It just sounds so good and like all the points you're making about. How like it's close enough to where it still feeds into the the prequel trophy and the original trilogy but it's still distant enough to its own thing is exactly what i was saying about Not a couple of weeks ago. So it's cool to see that like other fans are seeing it that way too especially someone who writes bill will. Someday we're going to speak it. We're gonna speak existence wilson day. Write books. I've i've been really excited for the higher public for ever. Since the announcement i was there i was watching it to stream everything but i think i ve been saying this for since i heard about it. This is the new e you for disney canon. I feel it feels like the. I mean like the path of the book..

Be seen those yet. I saw public animated just like the about the character breakdowns and thin character right down. The i saw that. I'm i'm loving the high republics i was gonna ask you so i mean they're pretty awesome little shorts and republicans been pretty fun. What's been your thoughts on high republic in general. It's i think they did an amazing job of making it feel both familiar and incredibly new. I don't know if you guys have read the let light of the jet. But i'm about halfway through the ad that was first three magna spoil anything but those first three chapters were intense and exciting and when the show up. I got really really emotional right i. It was especially the way like two thousand twenty went and i was reading it around the subject so there was a lot of like the emotion of being saved this organization this order that is just there for the greater good and that is just there is good people doing good no matter what the cost was like. That's what i need to see So there's there's of that but also just think you know charleston. That interview with speaking of alex with stars lane may talked about how they had this sort of blue sky attic with thousands of years in the future thousands of years in the past. They go in any direction they wanted to but they decided on the two hundred years before. The phantom menace because it gave audiences enough touchdowns that they're familiar with like yoda or even job at the hut. Now the hudson there but like their long lives so it's possible that they can be there they're elements feel familiar to cats like us who know the mass and stuff like that but also allows them to be so far away that they're not forced to be dependent upon the saga so they can have it since the surprise and that sense of You know Danger i think. That's that's my apartment. It there i. The biggest thing is a monologue. Good are we have. You're gonna hear what you have to say. I recently listened to the audio adaptations up tails of the jet. I i I volume or so And what was most interesting about that. Was you know the older public of as envisioned by the old. You tend to just feel like the status quo but like there were more jet. I felt village original trilogy but jeddah were always in the back foot It didn't feel in many ways as distinct from what we got in the original trilogy. In terms of the style. Djeddai the tone other some weird aspects of it because the eu got weird but compared to high republic. It feels different in in. I think it also puts into sharp relief..

"My head so Dan the reason I am asking about. Twenty years ago is that you had this big investigation. Come out this week about how around the same time when you were sitting in your college dorm room playing video games. I was sitting in my basement listening to with my brother. Some officials in the White House were preparing for a serious pandemic. Like we're seeing right now at this exact moment and others in the White House though were ignoring it. I mean I WANNA get into some of this story that you wrote. I. I'm curious. Why did you focus on that chapter of recent history when I mean? There's just so much going on right now. Jeremy I think that a theme of the current reporting is how much of what we are doing to fight this. Pandemic this couvert. Nineteen outbreak has its roots in. What happened twenty years ago? Including all the way back to the Bush administration's efforts to fight bioterror and there are parallels between the country fighting this crisis and the moment in time after the terrorist attacks in two thousand one. We'll take us inside of the Bush. Whitehouse what was going on there at this time. In two thousand one the Bush administration was trying to find its footing. The big issue in the health department across the summer of two thousand. One wasn't pandemics. It was stem cell research. Connie Thompson he was the health secretary at the time. The Alexy's are of two thousand one Tommy Thompson hadn't really done much or had any expertise in emergency preparedness or pandemic flu in fact several former officials and Told me that Secretary Thomson was set to have one of his first pandemic preparedness briefings on the morning of September eleventh. Then everything changed that day. His agenda change the health department's Focus and mission change the country changed almost immediately preparedness bio hazards. Those became top priorities for HHS which recruited new staff like a scientist named D A Henderson. Who had fought smallpox and those fears were worsened days later with the anthrax attacks that were mailed out to news outlets and lawmakers and several people died including a pair of DC postal workers. There were real fears of domestic terrorism. So I mean did these fears lead to any preemptive planning at the time for things beyond bio attacks like for things you know like the pandemic. We're seeing right now so the story gets into this a bit the idea that. Hhs needed a dedicated office to work on emergency preparedness issues and that's where Da Henderson. A bunch of other new hires scientists military experts came into play. They worked on early. Pandemic plans in one. Big Focus across two thousand to two thousand three was the idea of smallpox vaccination this. This was a fear that vice president. Cheney had that there would be an attack using smallpox on America in some way maybe on our soldiers on the frontlines possibly even on the homeland as a follow-up terror attack the administration ramped up a plan to vaccinate some if not all Americans against smallpox and this. This was something that health officials were really worried about. Because if you roll out a massive vaccination campaign you have to be sure that the side effects from those vaccinations aren't GonNa also cause new problems and DA. Henderson was one of the scientists who was really worried that there would be on a massive scale vaccination complications potentially in children so he warned President Bush not to go through with the national plan and it appears president. Bush listened to him and and other scientists and and stood down When with a more limited vaccination plan and then more notably Bush and his team pursued a plan to fight pandemic flu back in two thousand five and officials like Mike. Levitt the health secretary at the time who followed Secretary Thompson and a deputy named Alex as our ended up playing a major role in rolling out. That new plan to fight pandemic influenza. So this is the same Alex as our who's now working for president trump in the Bush administration working on planning for something. That sounds almost exactly like what we're seeing right now. It is one in the same. It is Alex as our who in the Bush administration cut his teeth on these issues before joining department. He was not a healthcare expert but as the top lawyer at the health department for four years and then as the top deputy to the secretary as our took a major role in crafting those plans and learning the lessons of preparedness. One former official told me that he's our had a binder of many tabs. Essentially all the emergency plans. You'd ever need if there was an emergency. This was a guy who really lived the idea of being prepared for whatever was coming around the corner and now that we are in the middle of the pandemic that Asia another's had planned for had warned about those plans in the Bush administration are helping inform but the trump administration is doing today. So I WANNA get more into you know how this leads to what we're seeing right now under the trump administration but I I know you also talked with in the Obama White House who who took over these panic planning efforts after after the Bush administration. What did they do next well? I think it's both what did they do. And what didn't they do? And one thing that the Obama team did right away that might surprise listeners. The Obama team came in and dissolved the White House Office on Healthcare Preparedness and security. This is something that Bush did when his team took over. The White House Clinton had had an office of global security that Bush dissolved. And it's the same decision that trump would get castigated for years later This is a constant theme that a new administration comes in and for whatever reason decides. They know how to do this better. They don't need all the same offices and trappings and staffing that the previous administration did but thinking in. The Obama. White House changed quickly. Because there was a flu there were there was a pandemic the h one n one pandemic flu in two thousand nine into two thousand ten and that taught the Obama team that a preparedness plan wasn't just a necessary feature. It was a needed tactic to fight the pandemic that they were facing each one and one led to a number of investments improvements across the health department some of which came into play later in the Obama administration when the abol outbreak ravaged West Africa in came to the United States the handling of that outbreak. The handling of -able was not seen as perfect even by Obama officials. I talked to a few who admitted. They did not move as quickly as they would have liked to contain that outbreak. Partly because it was unprecedented. Bullet didn't normally move the way that that outbreak did where jumped across country borders normally at burned itself out but the combination of the H. One one fight at the beginning of the administration. The Abol outbreak at the end of the administration led the Obama team to not only have this pandemic preparedness unit inside the White House but they crafted the pandemic playbook which we talked about one hundred previous. Podcast this this step by step guide. That was supposed to help the next president. Whether Trump Hillary Clinton whoever helped the next president avoid all the pitfalls that the Obama administration ran into so then president trump takes office in two thousand seventeen. He's had two presidents before him. Prepare for pandemics. One of them is handing off a playbook of how to deal with pandemics. What happens then? The trump administration has gotten a lot of criticism for getting these handoffs and not doing enough with them. We have some of the big stories here in addition to the pandemic playbook Hall Tuesday Daniel. Lemon I wrote the story. On the trump team getting briefed and a pandemic exercise at the beginning of two thousand Seventeen Moose to those officials ended up leaving the administration and some of the officials. Who Were there like Wilbur? Ross the commerce secretary either were disinterested or some said that Ross fell asleep during that briefing. So it's fair to say that pandemic preparedness was not a top of mind issue for most trump incoming appointees 2017. One official. Who took it very seriously was a guy named Tom Bossert? He was trump's homeland. Security Adviser he had worked on pandemic preparedness during the Bush administration. He'd been a top deputy working on the pandemic flu plan. So bossert was was a big believer that the US had to be prepared for this fight. Unfortunately for Bassir. He was dismissed from the White House. Little over a year later when John Bolton came in as the new national security adviser so by the time of the corona virus outbreak arrived this year some of the officials who are best prepared to fight it had already left and officials like Alex Czar. Who who had taken lessons from his experience in the Bush administration who had warned the president back in January that this was going to be an urgent issue. Alex Azar was also politically weak as listeners of pulse check will know he had fought and lost in battles with the White House. He had fought and been mashed banana. Survival fight with Seema Verma at CMS. So he was not playing The strongest hand when he went to the White House and try to convince trump to take politically risky moves to prepare to fight the corona virus outbreak. But as as things have unfolded the past few months it's pretty clear that as our and his deputies if you're looking at the right side of history for who was trying to warn the president they will be on that side of the ledger. Even though as our in his team also clearly failed on some other things like getting the country ready. It's a complicated story. And and that's why that's why the story from this weekend was fifty seven hundred words long. It's hard to boil down. Who is right who is wrong unpreparedness because doing this kind of work is so fricking hard where you don't know what's coming around the corner and if you warn too loud no one takes you seriously if you don't warn enough then people will die tracing these responses over three administrations over twenty years the past two decades? What do you think we can learn from all of this about the response to the Corona Virus Pandemic? Right now sued. Jeremy I think the shame of it is in the middle of a crisis. There's probably less to learn than either in the build up to a moment like this when officials are sounding alarms or trying to get ready or alternately after when we have a clear picture of what went right what went wrong and how to learn and copy that but it's clear to me after interviewing officials across the past three administrations the value of practice of getting the muscle memory of knowing who to call. What are the decisions we have to make? How many supplies do we have? And who is in charge of ramping that up? Those sorts of things can happen very easily in a down moment and one big frustration that I heard again and again was the United States went through this massive planning exercise two years ago for an emergency. This happens every two years. Fema calls together different government offices. And this isn't just sit in a room and you know pointed a blackboard. And figure out where you'RE GONNA do. Hypothetically this is a role playing scenario where people are scattering around the DC area. They're making calls are kind of acting out what they would need to do what they ended up acting out was a scenario where a hurricane struck. Dc A big hurricane. What would happen? How would you respond to that disaster? The problem was the federal government. Had already done that in real life. It responded to three big hurricanes in two thousand seventeen just a few months beforehand and officials were confused as I think any of us would be. Why are we spending all of our time role playing this hypothetical situation? We have all this real world experience and I talked to officials who said we should have used that time to practice for a possible pandemic. We were overdue and some said. They raised those complaints at the time. The issue being at the bureaucracy had moved so far along on planning this other hypothetical hurricane exercise. But what I have heard again and again is if we have more tabletop exercises just people sitting in a room and deciding. How are we going to allocate ventilators? How are we going to decide when to sound the alarm on pandemics? That would train of those senior leaders to know what to do when the moment arrives..

"Based Okay Okay Coke and you touched on Investors just before and that's one of the things I found really it fascinating about coin. Flex is that the high profile investors which he did have on board one of those being Taytay or trading technologies. How did that relationship nations ship come about because it's very interesting? Trading technologies is a software company and the corner pioneers in this space especially in the the the futures and options world. And neither. I've been getting more. And more into Crypto by offering it through the platform etcetera. How come it made sense for them to actually become partner of coin flex? Yeah so for. I think from their perspective they were. They are as you say. The largest fixed income Icefield software vendor in the world. I I read somewhere that a trillion dollars of off a fixed income flow of futures flow goes through that infrastructure on a daily basis and of market leaders. They were looking for a way to sort of differentiate and add to that sort of product offerings and they started investigating crypto will kind of unknown to us at the same time We were looking at launching this exchange. And what we knew we were good at was the matching engine the marketing being the kind of operations the whole exchange running business will What we knew we weren't good front and you know like a lot of crypto after exchanges The front end is his got you log into your system. And he's got a big fat buy and sell button graphing not a lot not a lot else and and so we were looking for a software partner that could fill the fill that space with multiple auditoriums exciting staff and ladders and brackets. Listen all kinds of different ways of managing risk and trading and and We saw having a conversation with t t and soon become became a power in that you. We're going to be great partners because we both take what the other want to do At all wanted to have. And that's how the policy was born. Yeah I think that's really cool that you have linked up with Taytay and you know in my eyes I. It added a lot of credibility to coin flex will win beginning to have those.

He was my boss and he was Growing the DR WS European side of the business which shaw which is still hugely as you said a huge global business now in Singapore London an Chicago.

It's worth ten which was very change of real mindset change so in a in a way you a very much a scalp e type of China.

Inverted Commas are on on the Independent.
