Peg Wagner owns and operates Above and Beyond Window Design out of her home, working with mostly designers. She fabricates window treatments, pillows, cushions, and roman shades, as well as sells hard treatments. Peg has a bachelor's degree in education with a major in Home Ec. (Back in the day when they called it that.) Sewing was in her background. In 2008, while working part-time in a design store she was introduced to CHF academy. It was near Charlotte NC and her next-door neighbors had just moved to Charlotte. Peg took the opportunity to go and take 3 classes while staying in the evening with her former neighbors. She was hooked from day one and her only regret is that she didn't know about this industry sooner. Peg has met the most amazing, dynamic, generous women at the CWC conferences and classes. Before that, she was a “stay-at-home” mom of 2, while helping with her husband's business as a sales rep in the ski and outdoor industry. His office was at home and he traveled to the states of MI, IN, and Ohio. Peg was able to manage the office while kids were in school and then take them to sporting practices and events when school was out. Peg and her husband live in Traverse City, MI and have 2 grown children and 6 grandchildren, 4 of which live one house away from us. Peg knows that is most grandparents' dream come true and does not take that for granted. In her free time, she likes to mountain bike, road bike, ski, and hike. Peg feels it's super important to have an outlet to stay physically active so we can keep doing the things we love to do.   Links and Resources; CWC    The Sew Much More Podcast is sponsored by;   The Workroom Channel   Scarlet Thread Consulting   The WCAA   The Curtains and Soft Furnishings Resource Library   Merril Y Landis, LTD   Angel's Distributing, LLC   National Upholstery Association

Takeaways – A podcast about learning from the wisdom of others

Takeaways – Life. Lessons. Learned. In any occurrence, whatever you are doing, whoever you are meeting, there are always Takeaways that can be learned. I started this podcast in January of 2018 as a way to share the Takeaways I've learned from incredible individuals that have come into my life. By that summer I started recording Takeaways from events that I regularly attended, namely the NAIOP Southern Nevada monthly breakfast programs. Takeaways the Process It's been four years and about 60 episodes since I began Takeaways. Takeaways has been a journey. From making the time to consistently produce the content, to evolving interviews to zoom during the pandemic, and then slowing down all together. Recently, I took a step back to evaluate where I was and where I wanted Takeaways to go. I realized two things. 1. This is something I enjoy, I believe the audience enjoys, and that I wanted to continue. 2. I was bottlenecking the journey. Scheduling guests. Writing post descriptions. Distributing content. The process of creating a podcast, and doing it well, is a lot of work. So… It was time to recommit to the process and set a new path forward. That's where Kri Edholm, and her company KRICO Productions comes in. Kri was one of the first people I met with in 2017 when I was fact finding how to start Takeaways. She was producing her own podcast, had me in to her “studio” and gave me generous advice on equipment and tech. It made sense for me to reach out to Kri again. Takeaways the Evolution & Expansion I have been doing this as a hobby. It's time to level up. What does "going pro" mean for Takeaways? It means consistency, additional support and video. Kri is helping with guest scheduling to keep the show releases consistent. We'll have 2 shows a month, 1 guest episode and 1 NAIOP Takeaways. Before every show, Kri arrives at my office with a fold up wheelbarrow. In it are 3 cameras, lighting, cables, and a sick mixing board. You'll be able to “watch” Takeaways on YouTube, not just “hear” it on podcast platforms. We have episodes banked and ready to go. The all new Takeaways starts August 2022. I hope you enjoy! Takeaways From This Episode - Evaluate where you are so you can decide where to go. - Don't be afraid to evolve. - Get help from someone who's walked your path before. Thank you for listening!

Thanks for coming on The Lunar Society.Sam Bankman-Fried 0:17Thanks for having me.How inefficient is the world?Dwarkesh Patel 0:18Alright, first question. Does the consecutive success of FTX and Alameda suggest to you that the world has all kinds of low-hanging opportunities? Or was that a property of the inefficiencies of crypto markets at one particular point in history?Sam Bankman-Fried 0:31I think it's more of the former, there are just a lot of inefficiencies.Dwarkesh Patel 0:35So then another part of the question is: if you had to restart earning to give again, what are the odds you become a billionaire, but you can't do it in crypto?Sam Bankman-Fried 0:42I think they're pretty decent. A lot of it depends on what I ended up choosing and how aggressive I end up deciding to be. There were a lot of safe and secure career paths before me that definitely would not have ended there. But if I dedicated myself to starting up some businesses, there would have been a pretty decent chance of it.Choosing a careerDwarkesh Patel 1:11So that leads to the next question—which is that you've cited Will MacAskill's lunch with you while you were at MIT as being very important in deciding your career. He suggested you earn-to-give by going to a quant firm like Jane Street. In retrospect, given the success you've had as a founder, was that maybe bad advice? And maybe you should’ve been advised to start a startup or nonprofit?Sam Bankman-Fried 1:31I don't think it was literally the best possible advice because this was in 2012. Starting a crypto exchange then would have been…. I think it was definitely helpful advice. Relative to not having gotten advice at all, I think it helps quite a bit.Dwarkesh Patel 1:50Right. But then there's a broader question: are people like you who could become founders advised to take lower variance, lower risk careers that in, expected value, are less valuable?Sam Bankman-Fried 2:02Yeah, I think that's probably true. I think people are advised too strongly to go down safe career paths. But I think it's worth noting that there's a big difference between what makes sense altruistically and personally for this. To the extent you're just thinking of personal criteria, that's going to argue heavily in favor of a safer career path because you have much more quickly declining marginal utility of money than the world does. So, this kind of path is specifically for altruistically-minded people.The other thing is that when you think about advising people, I think people will often try and reference career advice that others got. “What were some of these outward-facing factors of success that you can see?” But often the answer has something to do with them and their family, friends, or something much more personal. When we talk with people about their careers, personal considerations and the advice of people close to them weigh very heavily on the decisions they end up making.Dwarkesh Patel 3:17I didn't realize that the personal considerations were as important in your case as the advice you got.Sam Bankman-Fried 3:24Oh, I don’t think in my case. But, it is true with many people that I talked to.Dwarkesh Patel 3:29Speaking of declining marginal consumption, I'm wondering if you think the implication of this is that over the long term, all the richest people in the world will be utilitarian philanthropists because they don't have diminishing returns of consumption. They’re risk-neutral.Sam Bankman-Fried 3:40I wouldn't say all will, but I think there probably is something in that direction. People who are looking at how they can help the world are going to end up being disproportionately represented amongst the most and maybe least successful.The difficulty of being a founderDwarkesh Patel 3:54Alright, let’s talk about Effective Altruism. So in your interview with Tyler Cowen, you were asked, “What constrains the number of altruistically minded projects?” And you answered, “Probably someone who can start something.”Now, is this a property of the world in general? Or is this a property of EAs? And if it's about EAs, then is there something about the movement that drives away people who took could take leadership roles?Sam Bankman-Fried 4:15Oh, I think it's just the world in general. Even if you ignore altruistic projects and just look at profit-minded ones, we have lots of ideas for businesses that we think would probably do well, if they were run well, that we'd be excited to fund. And the missing ingredient quite frequently for them is the right person or team to take the lead on it. In general, starting something is brutal. It's brutal being a founder, and it requires a somewhat specific but extensive list of skills. Those things end up making it high in demand.Dwarkesh Patel 4:56What would it take to get more of those kinds of people to go into EA?Sam Bankman-Fried 4:59Part of it is probably just talking with them about, “Have you thought about what you can do for the world? Have you thought about how you can have an impact on the world? Have you thought about how you can maximize your impact on the world?” Many people would be excited about thinking critically and ambitiously about how they can help the world. So I think honestly, just engagement is one piece of this. And then even within people who are altruistically minded and thinking about what it would take for them to be founders, there are still things that you can do.Some of this is about empowering people and some of this is about normalizing the fact that when you start something, it might fail—and that's okay. Most startups and especially very early-stage startups should not be trying to maximize the chances of having at least a little bit of success. But that means you have to be okay with the personal fallout of failing and that we have to build a community that is okay with that. I don't think we have that right now, I think very few communities do.Is effective altruism too narrowminded?Dwarkesh Patel 6:21Now, there are many good objections to utilitarianism, as you know. You said yourself that we don't have a good account of infinite ethics—should we attribute substantial weight to the probability that utilitarianism is wrong? And how do you hedge for this moral uncertainty in your giving?Sam Bankman-Fried 6:35So I don't think it has a super large impact on my giving. Partially, because you'd need to have a concrete proposal for what else you would do that would be different actions-wise—and I don't know that that I've been compelled by many of those. I do think that there are a lot of things we don't understand right now. And one thing that you pointed to is infinite ethics. Another thing is that (I'm not sure this is moral uncertainty, this might be physical uncertainty) there are a lot of sort of chains of reasoning people will go down that are somewhat contingent on our current understanding of the universe—which might not be right. And if you look at expected-value outcomes, might not be right.Say what you will about the size of the universe and what that implies, but some of the same people make arguments based on how big the universe is and also think the simulation hypothesis has decent probability. Very few people chain through, “What would that imply?” I don't think it's clear what any of this implies. If I had to say, “How have these considerations changed my thoughts on what to do?”The honest answer is that they have changed it a little bit. And the direction that they pointed me in is things with moderately more robust impact. And what I mean by that is, I'm sure one way that you can calculate the expected value of an action is, “Here's what's going to happen. Here are the two outcomes, and here are the probabilities of them.” Another thing you can do is say - it's a little bit more hand-wavy - but, “How much better is this going to make the world? How much does it matter if the world is better in generic diffuse ways?” Typically, EA has been pretty skeptical of that second line of reasoning—and I think correctly. When you see that deployed, it's nonsense. Usually, when people are pretty hard to nail down on the specific reasoning of why they think that something might be good, it’s because they haven't thought that hard about it or don't want to think that hard about it. The much better analyzed and vetted pathways are the ones we should be paying attention to.That being said, I do think that sometimes EA gets too narrow-minded and specific about plotting out courses of impact. And this is one of the reasons why that people end up fixating on one particular understanding of the universe, of ethics, of how things are going to progress. But, all of these things have some amount of uncertainty in them. And when you jostle them, some theories of impact behave somewhat robustly and some of them completely fall apart. I’ve become a bit more sympathetic to ones that are a little robust under thoughts about what the world ends up looking like.Political givingDwarkesh Patel 9:57In the May 2022 Oregon Congressional Election, you gave 12 million dollars to Carrick Flynn, whose campaign was ultimately unsuccessful. How have you updated your beliefs about the efficacy of political giving in the aftermath?Sam Bankman-Fried 10:12It was the first time that I gave on that scale in a race. And I did it because he was, of all the candidates in the cycle, the most outspoken on the need for more pandemic preparedness and prevention. He lost—such is life. In the end, there are some updates on the efficacy of various things. But, I never thought that the odds were extremely high that he was going to win. It was always going to be an uncertain close race. There's a limit to how much you can update from a one-time occurrence. If you thought the odds were 50-50, and it turns out to be close in one direction or another, there's a maximum of a factor-of-two update that you have on that. There were a bunch of sort of micro-updates on specific factors of the race, but on a high level, it didn’t change my perspective on policy that much.Dwarkesh Patel 11:23But does it make you think there are diminishing or possibly negative marginal returns from one donor giving to a candidate? Because of the negative PR?Sam Bankman-Fried 11:30At some point, I think that's probably true.Dwarkesh Patel 11:33Continuing on the theme of politics, when is it more effective to give the marginal million dollars to a political campaign or institution to make some change at the government level (like putting in early detection)? Or when is it more effective to fund it yourself?Sam Bankman-Fried 11:47It's a good question. It's not necessarily mutually exclusive. One thing worth looking at is the scale of the things that need to happen. How much are things like international cooperation important for it? When you look at pandemic prevention, we're talking tens of billions of dollars of scale necessary to start putting this infrastructure in place. So it's a pretty big scale thing—which is hard to fund to that level individually. It’s also something where we’re going to need to have cooperation between different countries on, for example, what their surveillance for new pathogens looks like. And vaccine distribution If some countries have a great distribution of vaccines and others don't, that's not good. It's both not fair and not equitable for the countries that get hit hardest. But also, in a global pandemic, it's going to spread. You need global coverage. That's another reason that government has to be involved, at least to some extent, in the efforts.FTX Future FundDwarkesh Patel 12:55Let's talk about Future Fund. As you know, there are already many existing Effective Altruist organizations that do donations. What is the reason you thought there was more value in creating a new one? What's your edge?Sam Bankman-Fried 13:06 There's value in having multiple organizations. Every organization has its blind spots, and you can help cover those up if you have a few. If OpenPhil didn't exist, maybe we would have created an organization that looks more like OpenPhil. They are covering a lot of what we’re looking at—we're looking at overlapping, but not identical things. I think having that diversity can be valuable, but pointing to the ways in which we intentionally designed to be a little bit different from existing donors:One thing that I've been really happy about is the re-granting program. We have a number of people who are experts in various areas to who we've basically donated pots that they can re-grant. What are the reasons that we think this is valuable? One thing is giving more stakeholders a chance to voice their opinions because we can't possibly be listening to everyone in the world directly and integrating all those opinions to come up with a perfect set of answers. Distributing it and letting them act semi-autonomously can help with that. The other thing is that it helps with a large number of smaller grants. When you think about what an organization giving away $100 million in a year is thinking about, “if we divided that up into $25,000 grants, how many grants would that mean?” 4,000 grants to analyze, right? If we want to give real thought to each one of those, we can't do that.But on the flip side, sometimes the smaller grants are the most impactful per dollar and there are a lot of cases where someone really impressive has an exciting idea for a new foundation or a new organization that could do a lot of good for the world and needs $25,000 to get started. To rent out a small office, to be able to cover salaries for two employees for the first six months. Those are the kind of cases where a pretty small grant can make a huge change in the development of what might ultimately become a really impactful organization. But they're the kind of things that are really hard for our team to evaluate all of, just given the number of them—but the re-grantor program gives us a way to do that. Instead, we have 10, 50, or 100 re-grantors, who are going out and finding a lot of those opportunities close to them, they can then identify those and direct those grants—and it gives us a much wider reach. It also biases it less towards people who we happen to know, which is good.We don't want to just like overfund everyone we know and underfund everyone that we don’t. That's one initiative that I've been pretty excited about that we're going to keep doing. Another thing we've really tried to have a lot of emphasis on making the (application) process smooth and clean. There are pros and cons to this. But it drops the activation energy necessary for someone to decide to apply for a grant and fill out all of the forms. We’ve really tried to bring more people into the fold.Adverse selection in philanthropyDwarkesh Patel 16:41If you make it easy for people to fill out your application and generally fund things that other organizations wouldn't, how do you deal with the possibility of adverse selection in your philanthropic deal flow?Sam Bankman-Fried 16:52It's a really good question. It’s a worry that Bob down the street might see a great book case study that he wants and wonder if he can get funding for this bookcase as it’s going to house a lot of knowledge. Knowledge is good, right? Obviously, we would detect that pretty quickly. The basic answer is that we still vet all of these. We do have oversight of them. But, we also do a deep dive into both all of the large ones, but also into samplings of all the small ones. We do deep dives into randomly sampled subsets of them—which allows us to get a good statistical sense of whether we are facing significant adverse selection in them. So far, we haven't seen obvious signs of it, but we're going to keep doing these analyses and see if anything worrying comes out of those. But that's a way to be able to have more trusted analyses for more scaled-up numbers of grants.Correlation between different causesDwarkesh Patel 18:06A long time ago, you wrote a blog post about how EA causes are multiplicative, instead of additive. Do you still find that's the case with most of the causes you care about? Or are there cases where some of the causes you care about are negatively multiplicative? An example might be economic growth and the speed at which AI takes off.Sam Bankman-Fried 18:24Yeah, I think it’s getting more complicated. Specifically around AI, you have a lot of really complex factors that can point in the same direction or in opposite directions. Especially if what you think matters is something like the relative progress of AI safety research versus AI capabilities research, a lot of things are going to have the same impact on both of those, and thus confusing impact on safety as a whole.I do think it's more complicated now. It's not cleanly things just multiplying with each other. There are lots of cases where you see multiplicative behavior, but there are cases where you don't have that. The conclusion of this is: if you have multiplicative cases, you want to be funding each piece of it. But if you don't, then you want to be trained to identify the most impactful pieces and move those along. Our behavior should be different in those two scenarios.Dwarkesh Patel 19:23If you think of your philanthropy from a portfolio perspective, is correlation good or bad?Sam Bankman-Fried 19:29Expected value is expected value, right? Let's pretend that there is one person in Bangladesh and another one in Mexico. We have two interventions, both 50-50 on saving each of their lives. Suppose there’s some new drug that we could release to combat a neglected disease. This question is asking, “are they correlated?” “Are these two drugs correlated in their efficacy?” And my basic argument is, “it doesn't matter, right?” If you think about it from each of their perspectives, the person in Mexico isn't saying, “I only want to be saved in the cases where the person in Bangladesh is or isn't saved.” That’s not relevant. They want to live.The person in Bangladesh similarly wishes to live. You want to help both of them as much as you can. It's not super relevant whether there’s alignment or anti-alignment between the cases where you get lucky and the ones where you don't.Dwarkesh Patel 20:46What’s the most likely reason that Future Fund fails to live up to your expectations?Sam Bankman-Fried 20:51We get a little lame. We give to a lot of decent things. But all the cooler or more innovative things that we do, don't seem to work very well. We end up giving the same that everyone else is giving. We don’t turn out to be effective at starting new things, we don't turn out to be effective at thinking of new causes or executing them. Hopefully, we'll avoid that. But, it's always a risk.Dwarkesh Patel 21:21Should I think of your charitable giving, as a yearly contribution of a billion dollars? Or should I think of it as a $30 billion hedge against the possibility that there's going to be some existential risk that requires a large pool of liquid wealth?Sam Bankman-Fried 21:36It's a really good question, I'm not sure. We've given away about 100 million so far this year. We're going to start doing that because we think there are really important things to fund and to start scaling up those systems. We notice opportunities as they come and we have systems ready in place to give to them. But it's something we're really actively discussing internally—how concentrated versus diffuse we want that giving to be, and storing up for one very large opportunity versus a mixture of many.Great founders do difficult thingsDwarkesh Patel 22:15When you look at a proposal and think this project could be promising, but this is not the right person to lead it, what is the trait that's most often missing?Sam Bankman-Fried 22:22Super interesting. I am going to ignore the obvious answer which is that the guy is not very good and look at cases where it's someone pretty impressive, but not the right fit for this. There are a few things. One of them is how much are they going to want to deal with really messy s**t. This is a huge thing! When I was working at Jane Street, I had a great time there. One thing I didn’t realize was valuable until I saw the alternative—if I decided that is a good trade to buy one share of Apple stock on NASDAQ, there's a button to do that.If you as a random citizen want to buy one share of Apple stock directly on an exchange, it'll cost you tens of millions of dollars a year to get set up. You have to get a physical colo(cation) in Secaucus, New Jersey, have market data agreements with these companies, think about the sip and about the NBBO and whether you’re even allowed to list on NASDAQ, and then build the technological infrastructure to do it. But all of that comes after you get a bank account.Getting a bank account that's going to work in finance is really hard. I spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours of my life, trying to open bank accounts. One of the things at early Alameda that was really crucial to our ability to make money was having someone very senior spend hours per day in a physical bank branch, manually instructing wire transfers. If we didn't do that, we wouldn't have been able to do the trade.When you start a company, there are enormous amounts of s**t that looks like that. Things that are dumb or annoying or broken or unfair, or not how the world should work. But that’s how the world does work. The only way to be successful is to fight through that. If you're going to be like, “I'm the CEO, I don't do that stuff,” then no one's going to do that at your company. It's not going to get done. You won't have a bank account and you won't be able to operate. One of the biggest traits that are incredibly important for a founder and for an early team at a company (but not important for everything in life) is willing to do a ton of grunt work if it’s important for the company right then.Viewing it not as “low prestige” or “too easy” for you, but as, “This is the important thing. This is a valuable thing to do. So it's what I'm going to do.” That's one of the core traits. The other thing is asking if they’re excited about this idea? Will they actually put their heart and soul into it? Or are they going to be not really into it and half-ass? Those are two things that I really look for.Pitcher fatigue and the importance of focusDwarkesh Patel 25:51How have you used your insights about pitcher fatigue to allocate talent in your companies?Sam Bankman-Fried 25:58Haha. When it comes to pitchers, in baseball, there's a lot of evidence that they get worse over the course of the game. Partially, because it's hard on the arm. But, it's worth noting that the evidence seems to support the claim that it depends on the pitchers. But in general, you're better off breaking up your outings. It's not just a function of how many innings they pitch that season, but also extremely recently. If you could choose between someone throwing six innings every six days, or throwing three innings every three days, you should use the latter. That's going to get the better pitching on average, and just as many innings out of them—and baseball has since then moved very far in that direction. The average number of pitches thrown by starting pitchers has gone down a lot over the last 5-10 years.How do I use that in my company? There’s a metaphor here except this is with computer work instead of physical arm work. You don't have the same effect where your arm is getting sore, your muscles snap, and you need surgery if you pitch too hard for too long. That doesn't directly translate—but there's an equivalent of this with people getting tired and exhausted. But on the other hand, context is a huge, huge piece of being effective. Having all the context in your mind of what's going on, what you're working on, and what the company is doing makes it easier to operate effectively. For instance, if you could have either two half-time employees or one full-time employee, you're way better off with one full-time employee because they're going to have more context than either of the part-time employees would have—thus be able to work way more efficiently.In general, concentrated work is pretty valuable. If you keep breaking up your work, you're never going to do as great of work as if you truly dove into something.How SBF identifies talentDwarkesh Patel 28:30You've talked about how you weigh experience relatively little when you're deciding who to hire. But in a recent Twitter thread, you mentioned that being able to provide mentorship to all the people who you hire is one of the bottlenecks to you being able to scale. Is there a trade-off here where if you don't hire people for experience, you have to give them more mentorship and thus can't scale as fast?Sam Bankman-Fried 28:51It's a good question. To a surprising extent, we found that the experience of the people that we hire has not had much correlation with how much mentorship they need. Much more important is how they think, how good they are at understanding new and different situations, and how hard they try to integrate into their understanding of coding how FTX works. We actually have by and large found that other things are much better predictors of how much oversight and mentorship they’re going to need then.Dwarkesh Patel 29:35How do you assess that short of hiring them for a month and then seeing how they did?Sam Bankman-Fried 29:39It's tough, I don't think we're perfect at it. But things that we look at are, “Do they understand quickly what the goal of a product is? How does that inform how they build it?” When you're looking at developers, I think we want people who can understand what FTX is, how it works, and thus what the right way to architect things would be for that rather than treating it as an abstract engineering problem divorced from the ultimate product.You can ask people like, “Hey, here's a high-level customer experience or customer goal. How would you architect a system to create that?” That’s one thing that we look for. An eagerness to learn and adapt. It's not trivial to ask for that. But you can do some amount of that by giving people novel scenarios and seeing how much they break versus how much they bend. That can be super valuable. Specifically searching for developers who are willing to deal with messy scenarios rather than wanting a pristine world to work in. Our company is customer-facing and has to face some third-party tooling. All those things mean that we have to interface with things that are messy and the way the world is.Why scaling too fast kills companiesDwarkesh Patel 31:09Before you launched FTX, you gave detailed instructions to the existing exchanges about how to improve their system, how to remove clawbacks, and so on. Looking back, they left billions of dollars of value on the table. Why didn't they just fix what you told them to fix?Sam Bankman-Fried 31:22My sense is that it’s part of a larger phenomenon. One piece of this is that they didn't have a lot of market structure experts. They did not have the talent in-house to think really deeply about risk engines. Also, there are cultural barriers between myself and some of them, which meant that they were less inclined than they otherwise would have been to take it very seriously. Ignoring those factors, there's something much bigger at play there. Many of these exchanges had hired a lot of people and they got in very large. You might think they were more capable of doing things with more horsepower. But in practice, most of the time that we see a company grow really fast, really quickly, and get really big in terms of people, it becomes an absolute mess.Internally, there's huge diffusion of responsibility issues. No one's really taking charge. You can't figure out who's supposed to do what. In the end, nothing gets done. You actually start hitting the negative marginal utility of employees pretty quickly. The more people you have, the less total you get done. That happened to a number of them to the point where I sent them these proposals. Where did they go internally? Who knows. The Vice President of Exchange Risk Operations (but not the real one—the fake one operating under some department with an unclear goal and mission) had no idea what to do with it. Eventually, she passes it off to a random friend of hers that was the developer for the mobile app and was like, “You're a computer person, is this right?” They likely said, “I don’t know, I'm not a risk person,” and that's how it died. I’m not saying that’s literally what happened but sounds kinda like that’s probably happened. It's not like they had people who took responsibility and thought, “Wow, this is scary. I should make sure that the best person in the company gets this,” and pass it to the person who thinks about their risk modeling. I don't think that's what happened.The future of cryptoDwarkesh Patel 33:51There're two ways of thinking about the impact of crypto on financial innovation. One is the crypto maximalist view that crypto subsumes tradfi. The other is that you're basically stress-testing some ideas in a volatile, fairly unregulated market that you're actually going to bring to tradfi, but this is not going to lead to some sort of decentralized utopia. Which of these models is more correct? Or is there a third model that you think is the correct one?Sam Bankman-Fried 34:18Who knows exactly what's going to happen? It's going to be path-dependent. If I had to guess I would say that a lot of properties of what is happening crypto today will make their way into Trad Fi to some extent. I think blockchain settlement has a lot of value and can clean up a lot of areas of traditional market structure. Composable applications are super valuable and are going to get more important over time. In some areas of this, it's not clear what's going to happen. When you think about how decentralized ecosystems and regulation intersect, it's a little TBD exactly where that ends up.I don't want to state with extreme confidence exactly what will or won't happen. Stablecoins becoming an important settlement mechanism is pretty likely. Blockchains in general becoming a settlement mechanism, collateral clearing mechanism, and more assets getting tokenized seem likely. There being programs written on blockchains that people can add to that can compose with each other seems pretty likely to me. A lot of other areas of it could go either way.Risk, efficiency, and human discretion in derivativesDwarkesh Patel 35:46Let's talk about your proposal to the CFTC to replace Futures Commission Merchants with algorithmic real-time risk management. There's a worry that without human discretion, you have algorithms that will cause liquidation cascades when they were not necessary. Is there some role for human discretion in these kinds of situations?Sam Bankman-Fried 36:06There is! The way that traditional future market structure works is you have a clearinghouse with a decent amount of manual discretion in it connected to FCMs. Some of which use human discretion, and some of which use automated risk management algorithms with their clients. The smaller the client, the more automated it is. We are inverting that where at the center, you have an automated clearing house. Then, you connect it to FCM, which could use discretionary systems when managing their clients.The key difference here is that one way or another, the initial margin has to end up at the clearinghouse. A programmatic amount of it and the clearinghouse acts in a clear way. The goal of this is to prevent contagion between different intermediaries. Whatever credit decisions one intermediary makes, with respect to their customers, doesn't pose risk to other intermediaries. This is because someone has to post the collateral to the clearinghouse in the end—whether it's the FCM, their customer, or someone else. It gives clear rules of the road and lack of systemic risk spreading throughout the system and contains risk to the parties that choose to take that risk on - to the FCMs that choose to make credit decisions there.There is a potential role for manual judgment. Manual judgment can be valuable and add a lot of economic value. But it can also be very risky when done poorly. In the current system, each FCM is exposed to all of the manual bespoke decisions that each other FCM is making. That's a really scary place to be in, we've seen it blow up. We saw it blow up with LME nickel contracts and with a few very large traders who had positions at a number of different banks that ended up blowing out. So, this provides a level of clarity, oversight, and transparency to this system, so people know what risk they are, or are not taking on.Dwarkesh Patel 38:29Are you replacing that risk with another risk? If there's one exchange that has the most liquidity om futures and there’s one exchange where you're posting all your collateral (across all your positions), then the risk is that that single algorithm the exchange is using will determine when and if liquidation cascades happen?Sam Bankman-Fried 38:47It’s already the case that if you put all of your collateral with a prime broker, whatever that prime broker decides (whether it's an algorithm or a human or something in between) is what happens with all of your collateral. If you're not comfortable with that, you could choose to spread it out between different venues. You could choose to use one venue for some products and another venue for other products. If you don't want to cross-collateralized cross-margin your positions, you get capital efficiency for cross-margining them—for putting them in the same place. But, the downside of that is the risk of one can affect the other. There's a balance there, and I don't think it's a binary thing.Dwarkesh Patel 39:28Given the benefits of cross-margining and the fact that less capital has to be locked up as collateral, is the long-run equilibrium that the single exchange will win? And if that's the case, then, in the long run, there won't be that much competition in derivatives?Sam Bankman-Fried 39:40I don't think we're going to have a single exchange winning. Among other things, there are going to be different decisions made by different exchanges—which will be better or worse for particular situations. One thing that people have brought up is, “How about physical commodities?” Like corn or soy? What would our risk model say about that? It's not super helpful for those commodities right now because it doesn't know how to understand a warehouse. So, you might want to use a different exchange, which had a more bespoke risk model that tried to understand how the human would understand what physical positions someone had on. That would totally make sense. That can cause a split between different exchanges.In addition, we've been talking about the clearing house here, but many exchanges can connect to the same clearinghouse. We're already, as a clearing house, connected to a number of different DCMs and excited for that to grow. In general, there are going to be a lot of people who have different preferences over different details of the system and choose different products based on that. That's how it should work. People should be allowed to choose the option that makes the most sense for them.Jane Street vs FTXDwarkesh Patel 41:00What are the biggest differences in culture between Jane Street and FTX?Sam Bankman-Fried 41:05FTX has much more of a culture of like morphing and taking out a lot of random new s**t. I don’t want to say Jane Street is an ossified place or anything, it’s somewhat nimble. But it is more of a culture of, “We're going to be very good at this particular thing on a timescale of a decade.” There are some cases where that's true of FTX because some things are clearly part of our core business for a decade. But there are other things that we knew nothing about a year ago, and now have to get good at. There's been more adaptation and it's also a much more public-facing and customer-facing business than Jane Street is—which means that there are lots of things like PR that are much more central to what we're doing.Conflict of interest between broker and exchangeDwarkesh Patel 41:56Now in crypto, you're combining the exchange and the broker—they seem to have different incentives. The exchange wants to increase volume, and the broker wants to better manage risk, maybe with less leverage. Do you feel that in the long run, these two can stay in the same entity given the potential conflict of interest?Sam Bankman-Fried 42:13I think so. There's some extent to which they differ, but more that they actually want the same thing—and harmonizing them can be really valuable. One is to provide a great customer experience. When you have two different entities with two completely different businesses but have to go from one to the other, you're going to end up getting the least common denominator of the two as a customer. Everything is going to be supported as poorly as whichever of the two entities support what you're doing most poorly - and that makes it harder. Whereas synchronizing them gives us more ability to provide a great experience.Bahamas and Charter CitiesDwarkesh Patel 42:59How has living in the Bahamas impacted your opinion about the possibility of successful charter cities?Sam Bankman-Fried 43:06It's a good question. It's the first time and it’s updated positively. We've built out a lot of things here that have been impactful. It's made me feel like it is more doable than I previously would have thought. But it's a lot of work. It's a large-scale project if you want to build out a full city—and we haven’t built out a full city yet. We built out some specific pieces of infrastructure that we needed and we've gotten a ton of support from the country. They've been very welcoming, and there are a lot of great things here. This is way less of a project than taking a giant, empty plot of land, and creating a city in it. That's way harder.SBF’s RAM-skewed mindDwarkesh Patel 43:47How has having a RAM-skewed mind influence the culture of FTX and its growth?Sam Bankman-Fried 43:52On the upside, we've been pretty good at adapting and understanding what the important things are at any time. Training ourselves quickly to be good at those even if it looks very different than what we were doing. That's allowed us to focus a lot on the product, regulation, licensing, customer experience, branding, and a bunch of other things. Hopefully, it means that we're able to take whatever situations come up and provide reasonable feedback about them and reasonable thoughts on what to do rather than thinking more rigidly in terms of how previous situations were. On the flip side, I need to have a lot of people around me who will try and remember long-term important things that might get lost day-to-day. As we focus on things that pop up, it's important for me to take time periodically to step back and clear my mind and remember the big picture. What are the most important things for us to be focusing on? This is a public episode.

And again this week we are not joined by Pastor Bill but we will continue forward at this time, why are you still on sabbatical thank you the best so, I have to say it's weird we have for those of you who don't join us live, we have a countdown video for five minutes the kind of gives time everyone time to log in and get settled and etc etc before we get started with the live stream and.

You know so many people work from home all this kind of stuff so many of our meetings in business is the same thing where you're like okay we're give everyone just a few minutes to join us as you say that two or three times before you actually get the meeting started and, it really struck me as odd this week as I was doing it too. I realized the similarities between those two things this morning. As I means that this evening as we were going through that. So I hope everyone had a good week I had a good week it was pretty fun got a lot done at work and then I. Played a lot of Pokemon and I did a big thing.

Sorry 210 for each of the two expansions. And for the expansions even though I called it a living Dex I didn't do everyone, if they were in the original living decks so the only Pokemon from the base of the game that I don't have is rude which is a special Pokémon you can only get for an eventand so because of that I don't have them and that the frustrating but it's okay the. And then there's a bunch of legendaries they added that aren't part of the proper Dex but they're just obtainable from the National dex and don't have all of those it was just fun to finally for the first game ever actually complete the decks and while completing the decks actually having all of the Pokémon so that was a lot of fun I finished that actually this afternoon with mr. groggy or the bests help, he uses the best when he doesn't want me to sing the my little groggy song I'm going to be honest I think that's honestly why he does it but that's okay we love him anyway and he's in my phone as my little groggy so it's perfectly fine he can call himself he would like I did, get burned by the sun you can't tell very well. On on the stream because you know my camera actually does a lot of balancing of tones it's actually super dark in my office which is really nice but you can tell a lot on my head. And it is burned and I'm trying very hard not to freak out with the cloth band that actually is touching the top of my head right now and I'm trying really hard not to fidget with it the whole time because it hurts lift my sleeves. You can't see the red though without I mean you can't really there's no good way to. I mean you can tell you just can't tell. But yeah so it's definitely there it's definitely hurts. So yeah that was kind of how my week went and the reason. I got the wonderful heat on my skin was the wonderful best. Offered to let me ride from a little Lego event that we were at with Phoenix. Back home in his car with top down and I have not ever been top down sports car Highway. Writing not saying anything else about that y'all can glean from that whatever you would like as far as. Speeds or recklessness or danger because none of that happened of course because we wouldn't do those types of things and so we did we drove we drove to the house about an hour and a half. Hour 15 minutes or so because we hit some traffic with the top down and I got home and we was fine, and he was like it's I'm so glad you didn't get any burn everyone talks about how easily you burn and you didn't and then throughout the course of the night I just got redder and redder. And that's why he's apologizing because the best feels bad that he got me sunburned which he did not because it was my choice to be in the car you do not drive like a maniac I am just simply saying, it was it was quick there's you accelerate very well and have very good control of your car but it is much different than being in these small cars 4 cylinders and then SUVs that I have driven in the past. That get-up-and-go was a whole lot different so.That being said that was my week it was good I hope you all had great weeks as well Happy Father's Day for everyone out there who is a father my father is actually in the other room because he and Phoenix did a Lego Stream this afternoon together for Father's Day  All right this question is what particular historical document or portion thereof, do you think every American should know by heart. I mean there's a lot that I can answer with this question I feel that we should. Definitely know our history a lot more as far as historical documents. I think everyone should at least understand and know the Declaration of Independence and you know the Articles and the Amendments that are there. Because it's important to learn from our past. But then on the same token from historical aspect I also think we should understand what. Some of the documents that led up to that and what helps us make those decisions and, I just think we should know more about our history overall because we don't and often we are doomed to repeat and are in the process of repeating some of our, issues from the past because we don't learn from them so that's that's that that process is what I got. Does anyone else have anything they would like to say as far as documents are such and And Biggs I will agree fiberglass car with a big engine definitely goes and thank you the best for saying Happy Father's Day all right so let's go ahead and dive into it tonight, tonight you will notice if you have looked down or around or you're listening and so it's written somewhere you'll notice this one is called. I feel like I yeah okay I wrote down a different title than what I put in all of the, I change it at the last minute and didn't update my notes my bad is why all the fighting so. What I really wanted to discuss tonight it's something we've touched on in the Berean Manifesto many times in the past. But I kind of wanted to dig into it again as we're starting this journey through some of. My thought processes in my. Belief system and what orchestrates it not that we don't do that when Pastor Bill is leading but these are more you know. Fully me as opposed to me supporting and me uplifting and me, being part of the conversation this is just my conversation. So I wanted to talk about the why all the fighting so you know we as a culture as humans as people we really like to fight, arguing is kind of in our nature to a certain degree because pride gets in the way and we have you know belief systems that are hard to challenge and we all have, you know bumping heads and difference of opinions and differences of belief and differences of knowledge and, an answer when all that comes together you end up you end up bumping heads with your fellow. In all situations your fellow people that live with you your your family units then your your governmental structures your co-workers your there's always discussions of how things should be done and what they should be done and. That is human you know exerting it's not just human it's animal as well you know exerting your belief system being the next aspect pushing towards that but inside the church, Capital C Church big church everybody we really should be focused on the unity and the building towards something more than the infighting because what's happened so often is we have so many splinters and so many we discuss beliefs and and come to an understanding and continue to work together as Christians despite slight differences that we create. These Jagged off shoots that then because I believe this you can't believe anything else because I feel that you can't. You know so we have all this. That that people discuss and so one of the first places we want to look tonight. And I'm just confirming it because I forgot one aspect. As I was speaking because you know sometimes we have that whole like you know where you're going and then all of a sudden you're like but I feel like I should also talk about this. One of the aspects that that I want to kind of look at is what's talked about in Romans 14 Romans 14. Is we're going to read a bunch I'm just I'm just going to say everyone's 14 here. As opposed to spelling out the exact versus so. When were we're talking about you know things that can cause divisiveness and splitting a lot of times it comes down to at least in the capital c Church it comes down to belief of sin or differences of how we worship so the first one I kind of want to look at is that the differences of sin and in Romans 14 you know this is all talking about judging other. Christian's not necessarily people outside of the faith but people inside so. It starts off Romans 14 1 accept anyone who is weak in faith but do not argue about disputed matters one person believes he may eat anything while one is who is weak eat only vegetables one who eats. Must not look down on he who does not eat and one who does not eat must not judge one who does because God has accepted it who are you to judge another's household, before the Lord he stands in Falls he will stand because the Lord is able to make him stand one person judges one day to be more important than another someone else judges every day to be the same Let each be fully convinced in his own mind whoever observes the day observed for the honor whoever eats eats for the Lord since he gives thanks to God and,  whoever does not eat it is to the Lord that he does not eat it and gives thanks to God for none of us lives for himself and no one dies for himself if we live we live for the Lord if we die we die for the Lord therefore neither we live or die we belong to the Lord Christ died and returned to life for this that he might be Lord over both the dead and the living but you why do you judge your brother or sister or you why do you despise your brother and sister for we all stand before the Judgment seat of God for as it is, for it is written as I live says the Lord every knee will bow to me every tongue will praise to God so then each of us. Is giving an account of himself to God and then it goes on to you know the one people hear about you know do not, judge one another don't put a stumbling block you know etc etc etc etc things that we you know. Kind of other things that along the same lines but different aspects like okay don't do this in front of you know don't go to a someone you know is struggling with drugs or alcohol with a bunch of drugs and alcohol and look at him if you're like it's fine you can do it too that's causing someone to stumble don't do that that's not what this is talking about this is talking about don't judge the person who does take a drink every now and then or who doesn't take a drink every now and then because that's a different belief then yours in this situation there's two big passages you can kind of notice him walking through with the Romans the first is the eating or not eating what he's talking about with that and what he's talking about with that is there was a meat market. And the meat that was served had been sacrificed or blessed or other, religious used in religious applications to another God and so because of that the, certain members of the Roman Church were like okay this has been blessed by another God don't touch it and then other people are like, but I'm praying over it and blessing it for our God doesn't matter what happened before and so there was some infighting about that. And you know Paul comes in and is like guys it's me who cares if you eat vegetables are you eat meat it doesn't matter what you do you know the important part is that we're all here under, God the second is the whole thing about observing the day. Which was talked about as the Sabbath and how some people were respected it in and followed it in different ways and so that's that whole aspect of you know does it really matter the day does it really matter the how you celebrate does it really matter you know he kind of tried to squash some of those aspects especially in. Some Modern churches you know some people celebrate Saturday as the Sabbath some people Sunday some people Monday you know depending on your religious belief of what the last day of the week is and what the day of rest should be or if you even, follow that or if you just have a Sabbath at some point or if you don't follow the Sabbath at all personally I think we all should follow the Sabbath because we need it for our own health that's the example that God set forth is that that whole aspect but I'm not going to judge someone because either they don't or they do it differently than me because that's when we run into this trouble and that's what causes the disunity, in so many of these situations we have so many of the church splinters in so many breakups and so many denominational Creations over small aspects and then we have, people pointing at the other groups and saying things like well they're not saved because they believe something different, they're not saved because this we are when none of these. Majority of these are not salvation aspects and we should not be judging how. Worship or how they you know which laws they decide to follow because God, God gives us the Holy Spirit and gives us convictions that are different person to person to person to person so we should never be judging each other based on you know stuff like this. Now I will say there are times. The chaotic newms is still here just so everyone knows there are times to debate when someone is, wrong in a church like for example. I personally believe in going to church super early on Sunday mornings so that way I can beat everyone else to lunch it's a very important tenets for me there is no reality and no basis and what I'm saying is completely sarcastic but I prefer to beat all the other churches to eat because I don't want to wait in line behind so me personally I believe we should get out on time and not have long Services because I get hungry easily, very irritable when I'm hungry so none of us want that so Jokes Aside.  Why are we fighting about it why are we fighting about little things that don't matter.In these types of situations so on that. Going from going forward to the next passage I would like to talk about is we're going to jump over to Ephesians Ephesians 4 1 through 16. I can't type all of a sudden so you got a Ephsians 412 16. And this is often used about Unity so far as to like in the csb the title of the whole passage is actually Unity. In the body of Christ so you know therefore I the prisoner of the Lord urge you to live worthy of the calling you have received with all humility and gentleness with patience bearing one another in love making every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of Peace there is one body and one spirit just as you were called to one hope for your calling one Lord One Faith one baptism one God and Father of all who is above all, and through all and in all now Grace was given to each of us according to the measure of God's of Christ's gift for it says when he ascended on high he took the captives, captive he gave gifts to the people but what does he ascended mean except that he also descended to lower parts of the Earth the one who descended is also the one who ascended to fill all things and he himself some apart he gave he gave some to be Apostles some prophets some evangelists and pastors some teachers equipping the Saints for the work of the ministry to build, the up the body of Christ until we all reach unity in the faith and the knowledge of God sons growing into maturity with the stature, measured by cars fullness then we will. Then we will no longer be little children tossed about by the waves and every wind of teaching by humans cunning with cleverness in the techniques of Deceit but speaking in truth let us grow in every way into him who is the head Christ for him the whole body fitted a knitted together, by every supporting ligament. Promotes the growth of body for building up itself in Love by the proper working of each individual part now as a lot there I usually don't read that much because I don't like reading out loud but you know the big things there to really call out. We are one body we've all been given the holy spirit all all Christians have been equipped with the Holy Spirit upon salvation and. We were all moving towards one place we serve one Lord we serve one God and Father you know the Grace has been given to each of us as he was needed you know. As we go forward with that he equipped us all for different purposes not everyone is supposed to be. A teacher not everyone is a preacher not everyone is a profit now everyone is you know. To have people working in every single thing some people have more. Giftings in certain areas but not everyone like I don't think I could ever stand up. And it'd be an evangelist in front of you know hundreds and hundreds of people and do the whole evangelism thing the traveling and the the preaching different places all the time and I don't think I could ever do that that's not. That I don't I don't feel that is my calling might be at some point I highly doubt it but could be you never know didn't think I'd be talking and teaching like this ever but you know it's got that whole pastor. Were down here at the moment so you know it works. But we're all given different things, and we're supposed to then work together as one body all of us working as ligaments ligaments move the muscles that we all push forward together to increase. And Advance the kingdom of to advance the the body of Christ to then bring. More people in and disciple them up to allow them to then also be, functioning members of the body not just pushing people towards. Um salvation and never discipling and helping build the people helping them find their gifts helping them we're supposed to making disciples of everyone not just preaching to get people saved it's supposed to be a discipleship to then get them plugged in and become a part of the body moving it Forward also and so it's that whole thing of. Everyone's giving a different part and if anyone is working outside of the body it hurts all of us and that's that idea of the capital c church when we have someone in the Christian faith who is operating. Outside of. Helping us move forward and hindering us and making us trip and fall or stumble or or not move forward correctly you know we have people who. Preach hate and preach you know. Preach that we should you know we've had people from the pulpit all of these people should be killed recently said you know a certain group of people should be this this group of people should be that we have we have these types of people and what they are doing is they're causing. Other people to then look at the capital c Church, as a whole and Christians as a whole and judging us by The Works of certain people and that's that whole thing about, if we're not United if we're not moving forward together in a correct State then that one offshoot causes an issue, um for those of you who don't know me super well. I have some physical issues I've got arthritis real bad for years and years and several other things and so my hand sorry for those that are in. Radio land. My three fingers of my hand on my right side all nicely sit together like a normal hand and then I have this pinky that got broken at one point down here at the knuckle and it's it's off by itself and does whatever it feels like, it doesn't you know I've got a consciously, move it over it doesn't sit where it's supposed to sit like a normal hand it doesn't you know it just it's like hey I'm hanging out way over there and that's what we get when we have someone who isn't You know working together we get we get we get a pinky that's that's acting crazy when you're like dude just just get in line. Just just come on work with us here and it's like nope if you like going over here you know and so that's what we end up getting when we have these people that. are not preaching faith hope love their preaching knowledge. I know everything I'm the best I decide what's going on and then. Hey you know you shouldn't be looking at scripture in the way that you know you should study it you should be listening to what I say. Believe me I'm in the Pulpit I'm the one who's right.  You know situations like that doesn't Lift us up and doesn't build our body and so. I know this is we have I'm going to beat this  this dead horse again here for a second but I want to jump over to 1st Corinthians where's my Corinthians 1st Corinthians 12. I just wrote first Corinthians 12 so we're starting at the top okay First Corinthians 12:1 geon's 12. So now concerning spiritual gifts brothers and sisters I do not want you to be unaware you know that you were pagans you used to be enticed and led astray by mute Idols so that whole thing about mute Idols one thing you think of is is a lot of people serve God's that don't speak to them and we have the Holy Spirit that is constantly speaking to us so that's what he's talking about there. Therefore I want you to know that no one Speaking by the spirit of God will say Jesus is cursed and no one can say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit now there are different gifts but the Same Spirit there are different Ministries but the same lord and there are different activities but the same God produces each gift in each person a manifestation of the spirit is given to each person for the common Gert good to one is given the message of wisdom through the spirit to another message of knowledge by The Same Spirit to another the Faith by The Same Spirit to another Gifts of healing by The Same Spirit to another performing of Miracles to another prophecy to another distinguishing between spirits to another different kinds of tongues to another interpretation of tongues one in the same spirit is active in all of these Distributing to each person as he Wills so this is again that situation of we should be working together. Using the gifts we were given just because one person is given the gift of talking and one person is more introverted and so they prefer Prayer because that was the gift they were given their able to pray they have a yearning to pray they they love to to go to the throne you know and and lift up their prayers constantly to you know, everyone is built different and we all have to come together in that and move forward we can't. You know oh well I'm not as good as that person because I don't have their gift doesn't matter doesn't matter as long as you're not the pinky that's running off to the left. The right cuz it's my right hand running to the right and doing something that's against the body because no-one says. No one using the spirit of God says Jesus is cursed no one can say Jesus is Lord except for the holy spirit so don't be the person over here. Running with a false gospel or running with not even not saying everyone means, some of them were taught wrong some of them didn't do the study for themselves some people just believe what they were told and so they then are. Spewing the same belief system I won't call it garbage necessarily but I did use the word spewing so I mean. You can guess what I mean. Spewing the filth that they were taught and just regurgitating it over and over and over again as opposed to studying and digging in and figuring it out as opposed to just continuing a rhetoric to keep the same group of people they have around them satisfied, and I think that happens a lot where then you get a group of people together. They fractured from the mainstream or they are considering themselves the mainstream where they happen to have a mainstream belief system at the moment. And there then pushing that agenda louder than other people who are just quietly. Doing their thing and that's the thing that we have to stop as a Capital C church we have to stand up against Injustice we have to stand up against things that are wrong and and say so we shouldn't have people from the pulpit saying you know this whole group people should die or this people are wrong because of who they love or this person's wrong because of the color of their skin or this person's wrong because of the length of their hair or this person's wrong because they cut their hair once or this person's wrong because they wear, they wear nail polish everyday or this person's wrong because whatever the reason these are just ones that come to my mind. We're rejecting whole groups of people because we just don't like the way they look or the way they act and and then to say something you know. Detrimental from a Pulpit or from your leadership section we should be working together in love and together. Under the faith. and the hope you know we have faith that our belief system is accurate we that's faith if it goes from Faith to knowledge we don't have faith we have knowledge so we use our faith to believe that we're hearing from the Holy Spirit correctly we are we are. It doesn't contradict scripture so we're going with that. You know belief system and we have all these things going and so we walk in that Faith then and that's the key is walking in that faith and that leads me to kind of the last thing I wanted to. Discuss today which is. In Acts 17 and for those of you that have been here a long time really none of this is, new necessarily but reminders are always good as we walk through some of this and in Acts 17.And I somehow deleted my All right here we go, verse 10 is what we're going to start sorry about that as soon as it was night the brothers and sisters sent Paul and Silas away to Berea upon arrival they went to the synagogue of the Jews the people there were more noble than those in thessalonica and, we could read up to see why that's going to like it but you know not going to get into that at the moment. These people were more noble of character since they received the word with eagerness and examined the Scriptures Daily to see if things were so consequently many of them believed in including a number of prominent Greek women as well as men but when the Jews from thessalonica found out that Paul was in Berea they came causing the same issues upsetting the crowds. And the brothers and sisters immediately sent Paula way to stop the stop the issue and he moved on with his journeys I believe they went to. Athens next yes so. You know we are the Berean Manifesto that's the name of the the group you know our our podcast and we are the occlusion house and oftentimes people are like why Berean and. It comes from this section because the bereans Studied the Scriptures Daily they examined the Scriptures Daily to see if things were so so they would they would sit and they would listen to speakers they wouldn't just go that person's wrong. I don't like what they said ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah I agree with that person whichever side you're on. Whatever you thought they would then go back to the scriptures they would go back to what they had at the time. Study it and find to see if it was. Contradictory to see to make sure it didn't contradict and it didn't go against. What it was to help weed out false teachers and you know it's interesting because we as a culture as a Capital C Church in so many ways. I stopped doing that and got to a point where you would go to church listen to the preacher and I heard recently from a Pulpit you know. You should just listen to the your teachers and the people teaching you scriptures because they know what they're talking about and it's like but do they we should be examining at all times. What is being said and tempering it through the lens of. What does the scripture say what does the holy spirit guide you to believe, just because one person's belief system is a certain way doesn't mean someone else's belief system is wrong as we see and talked about in Romans 14. Sorry about that I have talked too long without getting a drink um so you know that's something that. We really have to look at as the capital c Church in Hazard groups of people that are moving forward we have to be one body we have to be United just because we disagree on something doesn't mean we should constantly be fighting about it I have belief systems that I hold that that my certain family members don't or. There are times mean Biggs or me and Phoenix you know get into discussions there are times mean means 80. Who is currently you know away on vacation get into it there are times where me and Pastor Bill it both on stream and and more off get into it about hey I don't agree with what you're saying and here's the reasons why here's the thought processes here's the discussions and come together on it but there are times sometimes you don't come together sometimes it's like well I just think that's okay well I don't okay well is this a Salvation aspect is this an aspect that. That affects our everyday lives or is this just a difference of belief and if it is a difference of belief we shouldn't be breaking up churches and organizations and bodies and such. For those situations we should be continuing to operate as one body of the capital c Church moving forward. So that's all I have that's men to my notes. Does anyone from chat have anything they would like to add to that while I look through and make sure I didn't miss anything. Do do do do for those out there to do do do do do do do okay so. That's really what I wanted to discuss kind of, kind of looking at those types of aspects and you know I think we should all stop the fighting stop the infighting stop that stop the arguing with each other constantly and move towards a more unified body, and if you would like to continue doing that wink you can join us. Every Sunday night when this podcast is recorded if you want to join and be part of that discussion as we move forward. You can join us if you go to our website EKK.HOUSE it'll show on there where we do the live broadcast it goes out to my personal twitch as well as our YouTube and our Facebook that we have and we do those live here in chat as you heard me talking to chat and about chat throughout the evening you can come and be part of the discussion if you feel like something is weird or you feel like something is off or you you want to dig into something more. That can all be done through that or you can also reach out to us on our socials based on that but we would love for you to join us at 6:30 Central Standard Time this podcast then comes out every Wednesday at seven Central and I believe it came out correctly last week I forgot to check because I'm a bad host. But it should come out then and that's all I have and I hope you guys all have a great week and I hope you guys are safe out there and we love you.

Carter Morgan and Brian Dorsey are working on their math skills today with guests Emma Haruka Iwao and Sara Ford. What kind of computing power does it take to break the world record for pi computations? Emma and Sara are here to tell us. Emma tells us how she started with pi and how she and Sara came to work together to break the record. In 2019, Emma was on the show with her previous world record, and with the advancements in technology and Google products since, she knew she could do even more this year. Her 100 trillion digit goal wasn't enough to scare people away, and Sara, along with other partners, joined Emma on the pi computation journey. Together, Sara and Emma talk about the hardware required, building the algorithm, how it's run, and where the data is stored. Running on a personal computer was cheaper and easier than a super computer, and Emma explains why. Performing these immense calculations can also help illustrate just how far computers have come. The storage required for this project was immense, and Emma tells us how they worked around some of the storage limitations. We hear more about Ycruncher and how it was used to help with calculations. Our guests talk about how things might change for computing and specifically for pi computations in the next few years, and Sara tells us about the storage journey from the perspective of a mathematician, and gives us some interesting facts about the algorithms involved, and we learn how world records are verified. Emma Haruka Iwao Emma is a developer advocate for Google Cloud Platform, focusing on application developers' experience and high performance computing. She has been a C++ developer for 15 years and worked on embedded systems and the Chromium Project. Emma is passionate about learning and explaining the most fundamental technologies such as operating systems, distributed systems, and internet protocols. Besides software engineering, she likes games, traveling, and eating delicious food. Sara Ford Sara Ford is a Developer Advocate on Google Cloud focusing on Serverless. She received a Masters degree in Human Factors (UX) because she wants to make dev tools more usable. Her lifelong dream is to be a 97-year old weightlifter so she can be featured on the local news.

Will video work for me in my market? That's a question we get quite often and the answer is always the same. YES, but there are some things you need for it to be successful. In this week's episode Mortgage Lender Rebecca Foote walks through how video transformed her brand into a local like celebrity in a short time. The key with video is approaching it as an attention generating thing as opposed to a lead generating thing. Three Things You'll Learn in This EpisodeYou must be authentic on camera. Finding a video strategy you are excited about will be the difference between you smiling on video vs looking uncomfortable.You must be consistent. Doing just one video isn't going to transform you into the town talk. You need to be consistent at it over time.You must make sure you distribute them. Shooting videos is just half the battle you need to /put them in front of the right people.
