Square Enix-owned studio Eidos is running a little experiment on behalf of the industry-at-large: Its teams are now working four days a week, for 32 hours, with Fridays off. In a line of work absolutely demanding of your time, that a AAA publisher and well-respected studio are taking the initiative to do things differently is an awesome sign, though it's unclear if such a life/work balance is even possible if you want to create truly great games. Naturally, we discuss. Also: Sony has quietly poached the Head of Content of Apple Arcade, Ryu Ga Gotoku simultaneously loses its director and producer, EA and FIFA are fighting over the future of Electronic Arts' most important franchise, and much more. Then, listener inquiries! Are we as perplexed by Ubisoft's recent decisions as many of our audience members? What do we expect out of Returnal's rumored upcoming update? Did Crystal Dynamics lie to its audience by unleashing pay-to-win schemes in The Avengers? Will the boys ever cease quarreling about the efficacy of bidets? Learn more about your ad choices.

Nüüd on ametlikult teada, et GTA3, Vice City ja San Andreas tulevad tagasi uusversioonidena, aga see tekitab meis ka mõningaid murenoote, sest vanad versioonid on poodidest kadunud. Räägime ka Eesti teemadel, Puppey edust The Internationalil ja Aeon Must Diest. EA aga üritab FIFAt pigistada nimemuutusega ja Rein saab rõõmustada järjekordse Games for Windows Live vaba mängu üle. Rainer on mänginud ka Metroid Dreadi ja natuke Back 4 Bloodi, ning Rein ehitab Song in The Smoke VR maailmas. Soovituseks PSVR tolmust puhtaks pühkida, sest Sony annab peagi tasuta mänge ära.

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, Sony has opened up a direct registration system that will give those in the US a chance to purchase a PS5 this holiday season. However, not just anyone with a PSN account will be invited. According to the FAQ page, invitations are limited, and will be based on 'previous interests and PlayStation activities'. There will be a limited number of consoles available, but if you want to be within a chance, all you need to do is register for an invitation using your email and PSN ID. We now have a clue to why EA Sports is considering changing the name of FIFA, its giant football franchise. The New York Times reports that there's a dispute between EA, the developer of the FIFA games, and FIFA, the worldwide football organization. The disagreement is reportedly over cost and new revenue streams. According to the report, FIFA wants to charge EA $1 billion every four years to use the FIFA license within its game. Additionally, the organization wants to limit EA's monetization of the game. The upcoming release of Skyrim's Anniversary Edition could end up hurting the game's modding scene, and will likely mean a considerable amount of work for modders on the game. If you've been adding mods to your version of Skyrim over the years, then it's quite likely that you might have come across the Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE) plugin, which is used to help run a number of different popular mods for the game. It's also likely that you'll have adjusted your update settings for the game on Steam and use a separate mod manager to launch the game. If you don't do this, then there's a risk that the SKSE can break every time that the Bethesda Creation Club receives a new update. Akeem has all that in your Daily Fix!

COMPLETAS MIÉRCOLES (Oración antes del descanso nocturno) INVOCACIÓN INICIAL V. Dios mío, ven en mi auxilio R. Señor, date prisa en socorrerme. Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo, y al Espíritu Santo. Como era en el principio, ahora y siempre, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén. Salmo 30 - Ant. Sé tú, Señor, la roca de mi refugio, un baluarte donde me salve. A ti, Señor, me acojo: no quede yo nunca defraudado; tú, que eres justo, ponme a salvo, inclina tu oído hacia mí; ven a prisa a librarme, sé la roca de mi refugio, un baluarte donde me salve, tú que eres mi roca y mi baluarte; por tu nombre dirígeme y guíame: sácame de la red que me han tendido, porque tú eres mi amparo. A tus manos encomiendo mi espíritu: tú, el Dios leal me librarás. Salmo 129 - Ant. Desde lo hondo a ti grito, Señor. Desde los hondo a ti grito, Señor; + Señor, escucha mi voz; estén tus oídos atentos a la voz de mi súplica. Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor, ¿quién podrá resistir? Pero de ti procede el perdón, y así infundes respeto. Mi alma espera en el Señor, espera en su palabra; mi alma aguarda al Señor, más que el centinela a la aurora. Aguarde Israel al Señor, como el centinela a la aurora; porque del Señor viene la misericordia, la redención copiosa; y él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos. CÁNTICO EVANGÉLICO Ant. Sálvanos, Señor, despiertos, protégenos mientras dormimos, para que velemos con Cristo y descansemos en paz. CÁNTICO DE SIMEÓN Lc 2, 29-32 Ahora, Señor, según tu promesa, puedes dejar a tu siervo irse en paz, porque mis ojos han visto a tu Salvador, a quien has presentado ante todos los pueblos luz para alumbrar a las naciones y gloria de tu pueblo Israel. Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo, y al Espíritu Santo. Como era en el principio, ahora y siempre, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén. ANTÍFONA FINAL DE LA SANTISIMA VIRGEN Dios te salve, Reina y Madre de misericordia, vida, dulzura y esperanza nuestra; Dios te salve. A ti llamamos los desterrados hijos de Eva; a ti suspiramos, gimiendo y llorando, en este valle de lágrimas.

Growing up in the Philippines, Dr. Emerson Ea's dreams of becoming a doctor were dashed by the high cost of education. He studied nursing instead, and realized the work was more than just a science—it was an art. “That was quite a revelation,” he tells host Dr. Rishi Desai, and now he can't imagine another path. Beyond decades of clinical work, Dr. Ea earned a Ph.D, a DNP, and became a professor at NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing, where he's now a dean. The Covid-19 pandemic upended not just his educational universe, but his advocacy and research -- often focused on health outcomes in the Filipino American community -- which the pandemic hit with devastating force. But as he envisions the road to healthcare equity, Dr. Ea focuses on the power of education to enable the next cadre of nurses to create better healthcare systems. Tune in to hear how Meyers College of Nursing made the best of online learning, the essential role of Filipino American healthcare workers, and why a nursing education opens literally hundreds of career paths.

In today's episode of the Daily Fix, Valve posted a teardown video of the Steam Deck yesterday, and spent a solid minute and change of the video telling people to NOT do what they're doing. Specifically, they don't want people opening up their Steam Decks and messing around in there. Why? They could break something. The battery could explode. The structural integrity of the whole unit could be compromised. Basically, a million things could go wrong. But, Valve notes that if you do purchase your own Steam Deck, you're free to do whatever you want with it (that includes voiding the warranty), and since the Steam Deck is a handheld PC, it's part of the long tradition of PC gaming to get in there and screw around. Just don't go crying to Valve when you break something. The Battlefield 2042 Beta is now public (for those who pre-ordered), and surprise surprise, it's got bugs. That a beta has bugs isn't shocking anyone, it's that the game is a month from release and there seem to be so many bugs in there. EA and DICE did say that the beta is an old build and the developers are already hard at work fixing the issues. And finally, yesterday's massive Twitch source code leak also revealed the revenue of some of their top streamers. Guess what? Some of them make millions a year from Twitch alone. And, for some reason, this is causing some of those streamers' fans to freak out a little. Subscriber numbers are generally made public, so it really shouldn't shock anyone that a streamer like xQc made more than $8 million dollars in a couple of years from streaming on Twitch.

I can already imagine the lengths players will go to get a couple no-no words past the filter.In his tweets, Freeman also stated that the tools for reporting players who break the rules has been improved for Battlefield 2042 to make them “easier to access, and clearer as to what you're reporting.”Support the show (https://bit.ly/2XdAlJC)

In this episode, Physical Therapist and Owner of Healthy Phit Therapy & Wellness Consultants, Dr. Lisa Folden, talks about diet culture. Today, Lisa talks about the pervasive nature of diet culture, how to reconcile diet culture with physical therapy recommendations, and how to support patients who are on their weight loss journey. What is diet culture? Hear about weight biases and phobias and how to deal with them, the Health At Every Size movement, and get Lisa's advice to her younger self, all on today's episode of The Healthy, Wealthy & Smart Podcast. Key Takeaway “Diet culture is this pervasive thought process that we're born into, that fosters the belief that we're never enough – we're never thin enough, we're never healthy enough, we never got it right.” “Diet culture is the constant reminder that something's wrong - you need to fix it all the time.” “Even if weight is causing some of the issue, the reality is, the research shows that weight loss doesn't really work for most people. 95% of people who lose weight gain it all, plus more, back.” “Weight loss is a by-product that some people will experience, and other people will not.” “We think in our society that no one should be fat, and if they are fat, it's because of poor health choices.” How to challenge the weight bias: Unlearn the idea that people in larger bodies are inherently unhealthy. It's not going to help you make them feel better, and it's not true for many people. Think about accessibility. Considerations are made for people with various degrees of mobility, so ensuring that there's appropriate furniture is a consideration for those with larger bodies. Reassure patients. Especially when dealing with patients who have dealt with the weight stigma, it's important to reassure patients that size variation isn't a problem. “I assume that their condition is caused by something other than their weight, and I treat them based on that.” “We're supposed to be different sizes, and we don't have to lose weight to be healthy. You can be healthy at any size.” “Stop telling your patients to lose weight, offer people in larger bodies the same treatment options you offer people in smaller bodies, and don't shy away from manually and physically examining them because of their body weight.” “It's going to be okay.” More about Lisa Folden Dr. Lisa N.

I'm happy to have you on today. 00:07 Thank you so much for having me. I'm so excited to be here. 00:11 Yeah. And today we're going to be talking about diet culture, in health care, and specifically in physical therapy, which is not something that I've ever spoken about on this podcast. And so I'm really happy to have you on to talk about this. And I remember speaking with Dr. Lisa van who's, and we were talking about biases in health care. And she said, one of the more accepted biases in health care is against overweight people. Yes. And so I'm happy to have you on and dive into that a little bit deeper. And so let's, let's talk about first diet, diet culture, you know, its impact on our not just our physical health, but also our mental health as well. So why don't we first start with what do you feel diet culture is? Let's define that. 01:13 Sure. So it's nuanced, of course, but essentially, diet culture is it's this pervasive thought process that we're kind of born into, that fosters the belief that we're never like enough, we're never thin enough, we're never healthy enough, you know, we've never gotten it right. And so it feeds into, you know, this multibillion dollar industry that says, you know, buy this tea, by this waist trainer, by this weight loss program by this because you always need to be getting smaller, shrinking yourself, doing something to change yourself, because, you know, you couldn't be healthy, you know, there's no way you're healthy, especially if you happen to be someone who was born into or developed into a larger body, there's no way you're healthy. So diet culture is sort of the constant reminder to you that something's wrong. You need to fix it all the time. And it's a deep part of our healthcare system. It's a deep part of, you know, like Hollywood and television, things we watch every day. So it's it seeps in without anybody really knowing that it's happening. And it's so common and so accepted, that we just look at it as you know, health, like a lot of things that are really diet culture, a lot of us would just look at as Oh, that's health, that's fitness. And it's and it's not, because it's actually corruptive. And it, it breaks us down. And it's not good for our mental health or for our physical health. It results in a lot of weight cycling and bingeing and restrictive in disordered eating. And so, you know, it's really bad. I mean, that I don't call a whole lot of things good or bad, but diet culture is one that I kind of just categorize is bad and unnecessary, 02:53 really. And so looking at that through the lens of a physical therapist, how do you reconcile that culture with what we do as physical therapists, because so often, if someone is, let's say, an example, someone is coming to us with osteoarthritis hips, knees, one of the recommendations is weight, weight loss of whatever that weight loss is, I don't think the recommendation is to be a size zero or two. But that recommendation is weight loss. So how do you? How do you kind of blend these two this diet culture, which knows very bad, but yet, in certain populations, it can be helpful to take off some weight to unload those joints. So how do you reconcile with that as a PT? 03:40 Yeah, that's a great question. And it's obviously something I've had to kind of deal with head on as a physical therapist still treating in the clinic. You know, like I said, in the standard outpatient practice. So here's the thing, there's physics, right? physics exists, when there's more pressure, you know, from gravity and weight, you can feel more pain. Like that's, that's a fact. But there's also, you know, this idea that we all have different sort of thresholds for our pain. And, you know, you know, like, I know, you can look at someone's, you know, x rays to people, and they can have identical things happening there, you know, at the structural level, and have completely opposite symptoms, one with severe symptoms and one with none. So, when I address the issues of pain that could be could be contributed to from weight, I just, I approach my patients from the lens that even if weight is causing some of the issue, the reality is the research shows that what weight loss doesn't really work for most people. 95% of people who lose weight, gained it all plus more back within one to two to three years, and they don't really have research beyond the five year point because nobody typically makes retains it. So the reality is, even if if you know if that is the suggestion, that's kind of what we've been taught as physical therapists, I know that it doesn't work. So I'm not helping my patients by saying, hey, you really should lose some weight. So I approach it from the lens of I'm going to treat them as if this osteoarthritis, this this issue, whatever they're dealing with, has nothing to do with their weight, and everything to do with all of the other possibilities in my toolbox as a physical therapist. So are we dealing with, you know, restricted, you know, soft tissue, tight muscles, you know, imbalances, muscle imbalances, are we dealing with, you know, just lack of flexibility and other things, can I do some manual therapy that can help, like, what other things can I do, because even if weight is a contributing factor, me telling them to lose weight is in the long run, not going to help them because for like I said, most people aren't going to maintain that weight loss any way, or if they ever achieve it in the first place. And it can be so daunting, when people in larger bodies go to health care professionals, and no matter what is going on with them, if they are in a larger body. The suggestion is weight loss literally across the board, not just you know, in our profession with, you know, things regarding the joints and osteoarthritis, you know, other things like that. It's literally everything, I'm having stomach pain, lose weight, I'm, you know, they literally here for everything. And so I just don't want to be a part of that. And I don't think I don't think that it helps our clients to get better in the long run. 06:28 Yeah, and it, might it add one more thing to this person's plate, so to speak to maybe, then they will say, Well, I'm not even gonna go back to this PT. Yeah, is there a way to meet people where they're at, and through exercise and other modalities, if they were to lose some weight great, not make that the singular focus? 06:54 Absolutely. And that and that's just what it is. Because, you know, adopting new health behaviors is good for everybody, whether you lose weight or not. And you know, just just just increasing the synovial fluid in the joint from, you know, more activity can be great, you know, so weight loss really is a byproduct that some people will experience and other people will not. And, and coming to terms with that has been a journey for me as a professional, and then in my own personal life and my own, you know, struggles from the past with weight loss and diet culture, but it's really freeing, and it helps people eat, I can just this year alone, I've had at least four clients, all of them were women, but they all had the same story, like severe trauma, from interacting with other healthcare professionals, like figuring out something's going on with them, and then being told, like, Oh, yeah, you just got to get that weight off, you just got to keep that weight up, and just kind of hearing it over and over again. And so coming to me was like a, sort of a breath of fresh air for them. It's like, you're the first person, it's like, not telling me I need to lose weight. And it's like cash. Like, I couldn't imagine that being the discussion. Every time I go to the doctor, every time something's bothering me, you know, as if to say, thin people, and people in larger bodies don't experience some of the exact same diagnoses and issues, you know, if weight were the problem, then that would be the situation then people and, and fat people would not have the same diagnosis. And we know that's not true. So yeah, you're right, it adds a whole nother layer of trauma that they have to deal with. 08:28 Yeah. And, and sticking with that theme, let's go into some of the the biases. So the weight bias, fat phobia and healthcare, we could talk about PT in general, like I said, and speaking with Dr. van Who's she sort of said, Hey, listen, this is apparently one of the accepted biases that you can have, you know, so let's talk more about that. Go ahead. I'll give the mic over to you and just kind of what's the situation on the ground here? 08:58 Yeah. And, and she's, she's right with that. It's like, it's like the legal bias. It's like it's okay. And, and even people, what's disheartening to me is interacting with people in larger bodies, they often will just accept it, because it is the norm. And they begin to believe that inherently something is wrong with them. They haven't figured out the magic formula, they're not doing something right. And so there's something wrong with their body. And they're almost Okay, in a sense being discriminated against or dealing with the biases because it's just so much a part of what we do. So it you know, it shows up in everything, like literally from the time you're born. You know, I had a great discussion on my Instagram with some people we were talking about, I did a summer body challenge. So I had everyone like, put on a sports bra and black bottoms and just show it and be proud of your body and we said it was the Being confident and proud of my body this summer and always, you know, not feeling like I gotta lose weight, two summers coming, you know, warmer weather doesn't mean I have to get to the gym and lose some weight or cut back on my calories. And a recurring theme in those conversations was just this idea that like, it starts at home, like my mom, you know, said, Oh, you're putting on a little weight, or you're getting a little chubby, or it's, it's this pass down fat phobia, it's like, do whatever you do, don't get fat. And it's like, oh, my gosh, we, we think we literally think in our society that no one should be fat. And if they are fat, it is because of poor health choices. So we create this hierarchy, where I'm better than you, I must make better health choices in you, because I am thinner, and you are fatter. And it just couldn't be farther from the truth. Because, you know, we, a lot of us like to believe we have a whole lot of control over the size, shape and weight of our bodies. But so much of that is genetic, you know, so much of that has a genetic component, we only have so much control. And even within the window of our control, without going into disordered eating patterns, it's still a very small, you know, amount of change that you can expect to see. So, you know, we hear it from our parents, we hear it at home, we see it on television, you know, when you get on a plane, and the seats are barely big enough for an average adult, you know what I mean? Like, barely, like we're squeezed in there. So imagine that humiliation, you know, as someone in a larger body having to either buy two seats or figure out how to squeeze into that seat. You see it in doctors offices, there's small seats and doctor's offices, even though we treat a huge variation of people in their body sizes, the lobby looks like everybody should be the same, you know. And so those are, you know, things that I want to see changed and considerations I want to see being made, especially in healthcare, because, you know, we we have the privilege of working with people, you know, from largely diverse communities, especially as it relates to their size. So, at the very least, that should be a comfortable experience, you know, you're going to your doctor should be a comfortable experience, you're going to your physical therapist, it should be a comfortable experience. So yeah, there's more I could say, but 12:36 I have a question for you that. So as a physical therapist, so let's say you're talking to you're talking to a group of pts about this, what advice do you have, that they can put into action to challenge these biases, and to make their spaces more inclusive? 12:55 Yes, that's a great question. So the first thing is to start within, and just avoid all of those assumptions that we like to make. So just you know, unlearning, that's where it starts like unlearning this idea that people in larger bodies are inherently unhealthy, or have inherently made bad decisions. Because one, it's not going to help you get them better, or make them feel better. And to it's not true for a lot of people. So getting rid of those, those preconceived notions about what someone in a larger body, you know, has going on, or what kind of health status they have. Also, if you're in a setting, where you have the privilege of sort of, you know, making decisions about the clinic setup, you know, thinking about the furniture, thinking about, you know, having things that are accessible, we think about this, and we're talking about people, you know, with varying levels of ability, if they're in a wheelchair or on crutches, you know, we think about making sure the doorways are wide and this and that, and height, adjustable seating and things of that nature, we should do the same thing for people in larger bodies, people come in different shapes and sizes, and we should do as much as we can within our power, you know, to accommodate them. The other thing is, especially when we're dealing with people who have dealt with the weight, stigma and all that trauma, we need to reassure them, we need to let them know like my patients are literally floored when I tell them like there's nothing wrong with you. You know what I mean? Like we have to abandon this thin ideal, like everybody is not gonna be thin, no matter how hard we work, no matter how hard they work, no matter how many calories we cut, everyone in the world will never be thin, nor do we need to be. It's okay to have variations in size. I truly believe in the concept of Health at Every Size, which is an excellent book by Dr. Linda bacon. But you know those things so I'm learning, reassuring your clients, you know, avoiding the assumptions. You know, there are people in large bodies that can do just as much as you can do or more, you know, but then when you do encounter someone in a larger body that is having trouble because of You know, their mobility issues or their body size, you need to be quick with the modifications, you know, we're good at that, like that. That's what pts do. So you know, give them the opportunity to try it full out. And if they can't, or you see them struggling, jump right in with a modification and you reassure them and you let them know there's nothing wrong with this, like exercise movement is for every body. And if you can't do it this way, well, guess what? I got another way you can do it, oh, that didn't work, I got another way you can do it. Or let's try this one. instead. It's, it's okay. And people need that reassurance. Because in the healthcare setting, especially if they've had that trauma, they're so nervous and so uncomfortable. And again, they feel like there's something wrong, you know, with them. And so, you know, we learn this in PT school, we treat the whole person, you know, we don't see a person and this is a knee, no, we're treating the entire person and all of that all of their preconceived notions, all of their trauma, all of their hardships that comes with them into the clinic. And so we have to figure out a way to work with them, ease their you know, their minds and give them the tools that they need to get better. And so I typically, I take weight out of the equation, I just, I assume that their condition is being caused by something other than their weight, and I treat them based on that 16:14 period. Now, here's the question, how about if you have a patient or client coming to you, who they want to lose weight, or they're in the middle of this weight loss journey, and they're committed to it, because they want to feel better? for themselves? Not for anything else. But you know, we're coming off of a really difficult year where a lot of people might have gained weight over COVID. And so how do you or how would you suggest PT support the patients that are coming to you, they're saying, Hey, listen, I, I'm on this journey, this is what I'm doing. I'm moving, I'm exercising, I'm eating better? How can you give them a little extra support? With out perhaps leading them into an extreme version of that? 17:04 Yeah, what I find in those cases, your role is more of a, I don't want to say a silent partner, but you're there for the supporting piece of it. But the goal is to not. Okay, I'll say it this way, I respect body autonomy. So essentially, I know the research, I don't think that, you know, chasing weight loss is a great idea, really, for anyone, despite COVID I know, people are like I gave the quarantine 15. I'm like, Listen, you're alive. That is such a blessing with the year we've had, you know, the year plus we've had at this point, so but I respect body autonomy. So if you believe like, this is not a weight I'm comfortable with I'm not, I don't feel good, I don't think I look good, I want to do something different, then by all means, go about, you know, the process that you feel comfortable doing, I am going to be here to support you by way of giving you evidence based solutions. So if you tell me, Hey, I'm doing this, you know, 30 day detox, I'm only going to be drinking lemon water. And shakes, I'm going to tell you, I don't think that's a great idea. And here's why. But ultimately, you are an adult. So you get to make all of these choices for yourself. Before I became you know, haze or Health at Every Size aligned and anti diet, I did, I did all kinds of things. And I would not have taken kindly to someone telling me, oh, you're wrong, you need to stop it. So people need to have the freedom to do what they want. And I just as a therapist, I just want to be there. And in my role as a health coach, I want to be there to support them, but provide them with the evidence that's out there. And then, you know, as they go through their process, I'm happy to fine tune, I love to give people workouts, you know, that's, that's what we do is PT. So yeah, I can give you some workouts. If you talk to me about like, I feel really weak in my glutes, I want to be able to do this or I want to be able to benchpress or daily, oh, I've got you, I can give you a great program, you can work on it, you know, we can follow up with me. But whenever you're talking about extreme dieting, and crazy restrictions and weighing yourself incessantly and you know, tracking your movement on your Fitbit all day, I'm gonna kind of bow out and give you the, you know, the freedom to do what you choose. But just let you know that I don't think that's going to really support your goals 19:26 overall. Yeah, and, you know, it's the same as as if we would talk about a return to sport after an injury. So we can help guide the patient through their rehab process. And when we get to that decision making point, it's a shared decision making point where it's you, the client, maybe it's a spouse, a child, a partner, the doctor, whomever might also be within that decision making framework, and exactly what you just said, You're giving the best evidence based information. You can to that patient, and then that patient can make an informed decision on what they can do next, or what feels good, what is the best decision for them? So I just want the PTS out there listening to understand that this is not unlike any other shared decision making that we would do. And it's not a you do what I tell you to do. Because we're biased against people who are fat. Yeah. Because you're overweight, you clearly can't make a good decision. Right? which is not the case. And it's maybe they need information to make a better informed decision, just like someone coming in after an ankle sprain or an injury or low back pain. 20:43 Yeah. And you know, and that that's a great point that you bring up because you're right, it comes up with injuries, people will Google it. And listen, I love Google, no disrespect to Google, I google things all the time. Know when somebody is coming in, and they're dealing with some type of injury or medical condition. And they're going solely based off Google. It's like, Yes, we have a responsibility as a trained professional to say, Hey, here's what I think you should really know. But ultimately, you're right, they they're going to have to make the call. You can't you know, get someone better in physical therapy, just you know, when they come to you, it has to be their follow through at home and their decision making. So that you're absolutely right. That's a great analogy, for sure. 21:27 Yeah. And now, you said this a couple times. But I just want you to talk a little bit more about the Health at Every Size movement. You mentioned it a few times tell the listeners exactly what that is, and what its significance is to diet culture. 21:43 So the health and every size movement is it was sort of tagged by Dr. Linda bacon. I don't really know the lifespan, how long it's been around, I don't think it's been before, like the 90s. But it's essentially a movement that believes in body respect, and body positivity or best body neutrality, and respecting and understanding that we're supposed to be different sizes. And we don't have to lose weight to be healthy, you can literally be healthy at any size. So it's it's really the antithesis to diet culture. It's everything that diet culture is not it's not a movement that is rooted in, you know, being sedentary and eating McDonald's every day. But it is a movement that's rooted in people making their own individual health choices, and and creating health habits that improve their health without any focus on weight loss. So the Health at Every Size movement sort of omits the idea of like, let me check my way, let me weigh in this week. Let me let me measure this week, let me see where I am. It's it kind of throws all of that out of the window. And so the book is actually Health at Every Size by Dr. Linda bacon, that was sort of my introduction to it. And it's been life changing for me again, personally and professionally. So I recommend it to essentially everyone. 23:03 Nice. And because I think oftentimes when people look at someone who's overweight, they think, oh, they must have heart disease. They must be a diabetic, they must have this, but you can have normal labs and be overweight. Yeah, yeah. So and I think that is one of the biggest biases not just in healthcare, but in society in general. 23:27 It is it is. And that is the premise behind Health at Every Size is recognizing that you can't look at someone's physical body and know what their health status is. And we're just so used to making those assumptions and it's so counterproductive to true health and it's so damaging, you know, to people, you know, I personally know people and my own personal story. I'm only 411 I know we've never met in person, but I'm very short. 23:55 A short and you come across way taller. 24:02 It's the hair. 24:04 The hair gives you an added oranges. 24:07 I am short. I've always been short. But genetically, my family my mom's side of the family, they're more like apples shape. So they carry weight in the stomach. They're usually just you know, they got big solid legs. My dad's family was a little bit more Hourglass OR pear shaped so very lower, larger lower bodies. And so literally my entire life here and I have never, ever, ever ever not been overweight. Ever according to BMI which is a whole nother topic but I believe it's trash. So I have always my entire life they considered in an overweight category. I have never had high blood pressure, high cholesterol. AB issues doing any physical activity I used to run once upon a time I ran 25 K's I've never had an actual health issue, but I have always been considered over weight, and that stigma because that you know, value was created by a mathematician, you know, that really even said that it wasn't supposed to be used to like actually measure health into BMI, the BMI. But because of that, being sort of what our healthcare system is run on in our insurance markets, kind of, you know, utilize for everything. I have never, for my whole life, I felt like something was wrong. It's like, I'm not running enough, I must be eating too much. Let me stop having carbs. Let me switch to this diet. Let me and that is it. You know, it's not just my story. That's a lot of people's stories, especially here in this country. And it's like, if we could just stop for one minute, and ignore the weight and ignore the BMI, and just focus on health activities, health behaviors that make you feel good. If it's walking for you, if it's running, if it's skating, if it's dancing, if it's height, whatever it is, for you know, joyful movement, that's kind of you know, that's a part of the Health at Every Size, mantra, it's like joyful movement. Eating when you're full stop eating when you're hungry, stopping when you're full, trying different foods and just living a life and, and managing the other aspects of your health, like your mental health, your emotional health, your spiritual health, if we could just focus on that, instead of the scale, or the measuring tape, BMI, we will be so much healthier. So so so much healthier. So yeah, I, like I said, I could talk about BMI forever, but I just I really, I love what health and every size stands for because it, it's really about valuing body diversity, that's what it is. Because the bottom line is, we're not all going to be the same size, we're not all going to be thin, we're all going to have different dimensions, and our bodies will change over the course of our lives, age, stress, hormonal things, pregnancy, you know, all kinds of stuff. And so we have to get more comfortable with that fact. And not try to create this, you know, there's the whole snap back movement with pregnancy, like, have a baby lose the weight. It's like, wait a minute, let's just be you know, let's adjust to motherhood and whatnot. Um, so yeah, 27:08 yeah, it's it. I can't even get into the BMI. Because I cringe when I when people start talking about their BMI is and what it should be. I mean, for my height for BMI. I am right now, like a tick away from being overweight. And I would if you saw me, you wouldn't think oh, she's overweight. But according to the BMI, I'm like, a tick away. And for me to be in that sweet spot. I would look emaciated. Yeah, exactly. You know, so, like, 100 pounds. Let's like, stop with the BMI stuff. You know, and, and I just had all my labs and I could not be healthier. Absolutely. So there you go. But yeah, I'm with you on the BMI. We could talk. We can go on about that for a while, but we won't. So let's talk about, you know, we talked a little bit about what, what can physical therapists do to look at their own bias and fat phobia in health care? Is there any Do you have any other tips for health care providers out there, when it comes to their bias and phobias? 28:30 Yeah, I would say, you know, in addition to what we talked about earlier, and then on learning practice, you know, we have to just stop telling people to lose weight, it's counterproductive, it's not effective. And again, most people aren't able to even do that consistently and maintain it. And then we have to offer the same treatment options we would offer offer someone who was thin, like it, you know, we just have to treat them with some, you know, equality or you know, equitably, and giving them the same options. And then I know in physical therapy, this has come up before and that's one of the sort of issues that the fat acceptance community has expressed in dealing with with healthcare professionals, is they are less likely to be examined to be physically examined, because of their body fat. And I get that, you know, when you go to physical therapy school, and we learn all these manual techniques, oh, it's much harder to try to palpate things, you know, when there's more adipose tissue, of course, but that doesn't mean you don't do it. You know, so my advice is to do it, it might be uncomfortable, it might be awkward, it might be challenging, but guess what, you grow as a professional and then you at the very least give that patient the the decency and the respect of trying what you know best to do, you know, in that you know, situation. So, um, you know, just being being supportive and not being demeaning that playing into the weight biases. And first really acknowledging that you have them that that's that's the first part because a lot of people don't think that they have until they're put in a situation where they have to face them head on. So recognize them. And then stop telling your patients to lose weight offer people in larger bodies, the same treatment options. You offer people in smaller bodies, and then don't shy away from manually and physically examining them because of their body weight. 30:19 Yeah, great advice. And hopefully people listening to this podcast will take that advice to heart. Now, where can people find you on social media websites? All the good stuff? If they want to reach out to you they want to work with you. Where can they find you? 30:37 Yes, well, my favorite social media is Instagram. I'm pretty much on everything. But if you really want to reach me, you can find me on Instagram and I'm at healthy fit. And that's h EA l th y pH it. I'm also again on YouTube and everything else. But I live there. I'm on the peanut app, which is kind of new. If you're a mom, and you want to have talks about body positivity and changes to your body through motherhood. I'm on that app. You can find me there Dr. Lisa folden. And then my website is www dot healthy fit that calm. 31:10 Awesome. What is this the peanut app? Yeah, this 31:15 is really cool. It's like club friends, but it's for moms. And so they have tons of discussions on there. But um, I was requested by the I think the creators to serve as like a professional and do talks on things in the health realm. So yeah, so I go on there every, every other Friday, and I host talks on things related to body positivity, Fitness, Health, Exercise, things like that. 31:38 Fabulous. Congratulations. It's awesome. Thank you. Now last question. It's out when I asked everyone is knowing where you are now in your life and in your career? What advice would you give to your younger self? Maybe like fresh out of PT school? 31:53 Oh, yes. Oh, fresh out of PT school that changes things, let's see, or high school or undergrad or whatever you want somewhere in there. I think you know what I think the best advice I would give to myself is it's going to be okay. That's really it. Because I was one of those like type A planners, like let me figure everything out. And I just remember being stressed all the time, like wanting my life to work out a certain way. And so it would have been nice. If you know, my older self this Lisa could reach back to that Lisa and just pat her on the back and say it's gonna be okay, honey, you're going to be fine. You can calm down. I just Yeah, that would that probably would have helped me relax a bit more during that process, you know, going through PT school and like, I felt, I just felt this heavy, you know, weight on my shoulders to like, get through and pull through and be great. And so if I could say anything to myself, it would be to just you know, relax. It's going to be okay. Enjoy the ride. You know, for sure. 32:51 Yeah. It's a very common piece of advice from a lot of people on this podcast. Obviously not hard to believe. Right. Right. Right. Lisa, thank you so much for coming on the podcast. It was a great discussion. And, you know, my hope is that people will take away from this all of the great tips to really examine your biases, and just start treating everybody like the people they are. Absolutely. Thank 33:18 you so much for having me. 33:20 Anytime. Anytime. You want to come back. You are welcome. And everyone. Thanks so much for listening. Have a great couple of days and stay healthy, wealthy and smart.

In today's episode, there's rumors abound that Detroid: Become Human and Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream just signed a deal with Disney to make a Star Wars game. Keep in mind this is still a rumor, but according to Dualshockers, sources have confirmed that work has begun on a Star Wars project at the studio. Quantic Dream is best known for their narrative-based adventure games, like the award-winning Detroit: Become Human, Heavy Rain, and Beyond: Two Souls. There's no details as to what genre this rumored Star Wars game would be—maybe another choice-driven game like Detroit? Or an action game like EA's Jedi: Fallen Order? What are your theories? Let us know in the comments! And have you finished Deltarune: Chapter 2 already, and are ready for more? Developer Toby Fox has announced that the next three chapters of the game will be released at once time. Fox understands gamers' frustration at having to wait a few years between chapters, so he's hoping to give you the final parts in one big drop. Fox has also revealed that they won't be released for free, like Chapters 1 and 2 were. Expect to pay a little more than what his previous game, Undertale, currently sells for—which is about $15. Today's episode is brought to you by Movies Anywhere.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Tuesday 21st September. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. HONDA SET THEIR EV SIGHTS VERY LOW "Honda Motor Co's U.S. unit said on Monday it is targeting initial annual sales of 70,000 for its planned electric Prologue sport utility vehicle when it goes to market in 2024." "Honda plans to add additional electric vehicle models as it aims to have sold a total of 500,000 electric vehicles in the United States by 2030" "GM will assemble the Prologue and the Acura SUV -- both of which will go on sale in 2024 -- but Honda has not disclosed which plant will build the vehicles or the name or volume targets for the Acura. Dave Gardner, executive vice president of national operations at American Honda Motor Co, said in a statement Honda will initially focus Prologue sales on California and other states like Texas and Florida. He said Honda plans to add hybrid-electric systems to more U.S. models." 1.2million vehicles a year in the U.S. and they want 6% to be EV by 2024.

Both were seen at Electrify America's fast-charging station by EV, Eh?, who was driving from the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area (GTHA) to Normal, Illinois to see Rivian R1T" "While at a Supercharger today that happened to be next to an Electrify America, I ended up spotting the Hummer SUT EV, the Polestar2, and the Nissan Ariya. All of them are unobtanium as far as I know? I guess its not a surprise given that the EA was near Detroit... I will be posting more content on this soon!" HYUNDAI IONIQ 6 DELAYED "The Ioniq 6, Hyundai's second bespoke electric car, has been spotted out on the road for the first time, but reports from Korea suggest the final design will change substantially" reports Felix Page for Autocar. "According to the Korean Economic Daily, the launch of the Ioniq 6 has been pushed back to mid-2022 to allow the body to be lengthened by 20mm, the bumpers and lights to be restyled and the battery to be upsized from 72.6kWh to 77.4kWh. " "The EV's belated launch has also been attributed to a delayed overhaul of the Asan factory where it will be produced. That site currently builds the combustion-engined Sonata saloon and needs refitting to build cars based on the E-GMP platform." "The 77kWh battery pack is already available in sibling brand Kia's new EV6 crossover, which suggests the Ioniq 6 could be more closely related to that car technically, in line with its performance billing."

BP owns half of Lightsource, a solar energy company that lost a combined 59.3 million pounds ($81.8 million) in 2018 and 2019, the last year for which data is available. The company's UK-based electric-vehicle charging firm, bp pulse, lost a combined 22.3 million pounds ($30.8 million) over the two years." The company acknowledged that its fast-growing clean-energy business - including its solar, EV-charging and wind ventures - continues to lose money. BP does not expect profits from those businesses until at least 2025. "For bp pulse, that means operating 70,000 charging points by 2030, up from 11,000 now." "BP Chief Executive Bernard Looney, who took office in February 2020, is gambling that BP can make the clean-energy transition much faster than its peers.” Source: https://www.reuters.com/business/sustainable-business/bp-gambles-big-fast-transition-oil-renewables-2021-09-20/ GM SAYS CHEVY BOLT EV BATTERY PRODUCTION HAS RESUMED "LG battery plants in Holland and Hazel Park, Michigan, have resumed production. In addition, LG is adding capacity to provide more cells to GM. As a result, replacement battery modules will begin shipping to dealers as soon as mid-October. The root cause of the rare circumstances that could cause a battery fire is two manufacturing defects known as a torn anode and a folded separator, both of which need to be present in the same battery cell. LG has implemented new manufacturing processes and has worked with GM to review and enhance its quality assurance programs to provide confidence in its batteries moving forward. LG will institute these new processes in other facilities that will provide cells to GM in the future." “GM will continue to prioritize Chevy Bolt EV and EUV customers whose batteries were manufactured during specific build timeframes where GM believes battery defects appear to be clustered. The company has established a notification process that will inform affected customers when their replacement modules will be available.” The good news for owners is that the new batteries will include an extended battery 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty."

Even though it's fully camouflaged, one can easily notice the large multi-spoke wheels with a two-tone look that appear to be borrowed from the larger AMG EQS." says Motor1.com "The amped-up EQE rides low to the ground on low-profile tires and hides a bigger spoiler at the back. Mercedes has previously referred to the EQS as playing in a league of its own, claiming the EQE will be its direct answer to the likes of the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Audi E-Tron GT.

It's starting out with the Pioneer, a go-anywhere brick outhouse of a thing designed for monster range figures under the most extreme circumstances on Earth." " Fering has gone with a lithium-titanate-oxide (LTO) battery pack. These have advantages and drawbacks; they're renowned for extremely long life cycles, they can charge quickly and they work from -40 to 60 °C" "the Pioneer can only go about 80 km (50 miles) on pure, silent, zero-emissions battery power. e Pioneer also carries a 70-kW (94-hp), 800cc, three-cylinder biodiesel combustion generator to keep the batteries topped up. Running constantly at its most efficient speed, the combustion engine is capable of delivering impressive fuel efficiency around 50 miles per gallon. With long-range tanks fitted, Fering estimates a whopping 7,000-km (4,350-mile) range between fuel stops." "Drive comes from a pair of electric motors at the front and rear axles, offering some 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. " "Fering, founded by former McLaren Head of Advanced Concepts Ben Scott-Geddes, has got its first prototype up and running, and it's undergoing a series of tests both by Fering and by early customer organizations evaluating it for various use cases. The company says it's targeting the first half of 2022 for the start of serial production."

However, Schäfer says the volume model, which has so far been offered as a combustion engine and plug-in hybrid, will not be launched as a purely electric vehicle until after 2025." "The Skoda boss told the German business magazine Handelsblatt: “For the second half of the current decade, we are thinking intensively about an E-Octavia – the electric counterpart to our most successful model for decades, the core of our brand.” " Source: https://www.electrive.com/2021/09/20/skoda-considers-an-electric-octavia-for-2025 SAFETY OFFICIAL SAYS TESLA SHOULD ADDRESS ‘BASIC SAFETY ISSUES' "Jennifer Homendy, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, told the Wall Street Journal that Tesla should address “basic safety issues” before the carmaker expands its so-called “full self-driving” (FSD) mode." "Homendy had harsh words for Tesla's use of the term “full self-driving,” which she called “misleading and irresponsible,” adding that Tesla “has clearly misled numerous people to misuse and abuse technology.” The NTSB can conduct investigations and make recommendations, but has no enforcement authority." "In May, Tesla's director of Autopilot software had told the California Department of Motor Vehicles that Musk overstated the capabilities of the company's advanced driver assist system, a precursor to FSD. In February 2020, the NTSB found Tesla's Autopilot driver assistance system was one of the possible causes in a fatal 2018 crash, stating that the driver, who was playing a mobile game while using Autopilot, was overly confident in Autopilot's capabilities."

Hopefully you guys are all doing good today. We are in the next day of our Traffic Secrets Launch, talking about traffic secrets, and the book, and how you traffic to your funnels and a bunch of other amazing things. I hope you guys enjoyed the last few days. We've had a fun time to go through some of the things in the books and the concepts. So far, well over 10,000 of you guys have ordered the book, which is amazing. I think it's 3,000 or 4,000 of you guys have bought the audio book, which is the upsell order form bumps, which I'm super grateful for, because I spent three days in lockdown in a recording studio recording that for you guys. So thank you for making that time not a waste of my time and energy. It was crazy. For those who've never done an audio book, you literally have headphones on, and you're reading the book and there's someone listening to everything. And if you mess up, you have to stop, and then you go back, and you just go again, and if you mess up, you stop. I did all three books over seven days. It was a nightmare, being stuck in little spot like this, and you can't move while you're talking, and you can't mess up and you have to keep your energy high for eight hours a day. It's really, really hard. But there were over 6,700 cuts where I messed up and we had to go back and fix, and fix, and fix, and fix. To read all three of these books, Dotcom, Expert and Traffic. So anyway, I've got a dozen or so of you guys messaged me saying you listened to the entire audio book already, which is crazy. It took me three days to read and you listened to it in a day, which is, I don't know, makes me happy. Also, people said the hard thing is that they can't listen in 2X speed because it's already at 8X speed because that's how you get Russell Brunson. I only come in 8X speed, I don't come any slower than that. Anyway, which is kind of fun though. But anyway, the Traffic Secrets audio book is the order form bump. And then, by the way, I don't know, probably 200 of you guys have messaged me on Instagram like, "How do I get the box set?" Okay. When you buy the book, you go buy the Traffic Secrets book and the upsell's like, "Hey, do you want the entire Secrets trilogy?" And if you say, yes, then we'll ship the whole thing on May 5th. If you say no, then you don't get the whole thing. Anyway, so that's kind of there. And the other thing is that one of the upsells is the audio books for all three, so if you want to geek out during this quarantine time and listen to all three of the audio books, that may be an opportunity, but you got to go check out the funnel to even know. So, if you go to trafficsecrets.com, you'll get a free copy of the Traffic Secrets book, the order form bump is like, "Do you want the audio?" You're like, "Yes, I want the audio book." Boom, you got the audio book. Next upsell's like, "Hey, do you want the entire box set?" Because you'd be crazy not too. And you're like, "Yeah, I want the box set." And you say, "Yes." And it's like, "Do you also want the audio book for the box set?" And you're like, "Yes." So, that's how it works. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the funnel. I always hope people buy slowly because it's fun to go through the process and see what we did. All right, so today, hopefully this works a little better. Yesterday my Instagram was muffled, so hopefully you guys can hear me. And then my Facebook/YouTube video camera crashed nine minutes in because somebody tried to call me. So I've locked down all these things, this is my own personal studio out of my quarantine, trying to make sure this is all going to work for you guys. Hopefully it's working today, hopefully you guys can hear me, hopefully nobody calls through. I try to block everybody, and we can just hang out and have some fun. This video behind me is trafficsecrets.com. If you're like, "What is that? What are you saying on that video, Russell?" You can just click on that button and you can watch it. So anyway, everyone said, "Where do I go buy..." I literally just said you get the entire box. So the only way to get the box right now is you go to trafficsecrets.com. You buy the book. And I say, buy loosely because it's free, use just cover shipping and handling. So it's 9.95 US or 19.95 international. And these ship on May 5th. So there's a little bit of delay because the way the publishers work is you... Yeah. The way the publisher works, the publishing date is May 5th, but we had to roll it out earlier. Anyway, it's a long story, but the books, that's where you get the book. And then the audio book, you can get immediate access to. So you can listen to it today. And then the box set is the first upsell. So if you want to upgrade to the box set, which I highly recommend because this is my life work. Is this crazy? People say sometimes, "This is my life's work." Like literally, this is my life's work. It's all here. It's in the Dot Com Secrets book. It's all my life's work about how to build funnels. This is the new hardbound updated version. There's over 30,000 new words in this. Actually it's more than that. This book started at 58,000 words. I ended deleting... I deleted probably 20, 25, 30,000 words and ended up over 90,000. Expert Secret, same thing. This one started at 60,000, I think I deleted 20 something thousand words. And then it ended up being over 90... Almost, I think this one was almost 90,000, and Traffic Secrets is like 94,000. So this is my life work. It's updated. They all work together. When you get these, I would highly recommend going over it. I would listen DotCom Secrets first, then Expert, then Traffic. If you've read these in the past, they've all been updated. They're all new. This is five years worth of experience re-woven back into the book, that's... Anyway. So there you go. There's a pitch for the box said, but it's going to be awesome. So today what I want to do, I'm going to go back through Traffic Secrets. All right, Traffic Secrets. And we're going to go dive deeper. So I've been reading parts of this and telling you stories from this book over the last couple days. I'm going to keep... Hopefully you guys are enjoying this. If you're liking this, let me know in the comments down below. I'm enjoying doing it and I'm going to keep doing it if you guys like. Unless you're like, "This is horrible, Russell, I just want the book or the audio book," I can stop, but I'm enjoying this. I'm in quarantine anyway. So might as well hang out with my friends, talking about my new book. So if you go through this, the first video, I talked about the preface, preface, I don't know know how you say that. And I talked about how there's a storm coming and it is crazy. I started writing this book two years ago, I would've never known that we would have launched this in the middle of this epidemic where we're all staying at home. We're all quarantined, and businesses are failing left and right, right now because of just... Anyway. I'm not going to go too deep into it, but it's a scary, scary time. And your ability to get customers in the door, not just crappy customers, but your dream customers, has everything to do with your business, if it survives, or if it doesn't. This is literally your life preserver. I'm throwing it to you right now for you to master because this is going to keep fuel, traffic, people coming into your business right now. And in a couple months from now, when the quarantines lifting and things are shifted, it'll give you the ability to thrive, to regrow your business. All the things happen, but this is this nice moment you have to go there and master these principles and really understand them. So literally, the introduction's called There's A Storm Coming, and now we're in the middle of the storm. So not going to say I'm calling my shot or calling the future, but anyway, just kidding. All right, so that was the first day. And then we did the book launch and then that day I talked about chapter one, who is your dream customer? We talked about away from pleasure towards pain, no away from pain towards pleasure. Then yesterday we started talking about the searcher and the scroller, understand the two differences of your dream customer, right? Are they searching or are they scrolling, and which networks are different, right? Think about searching how it's like Google, YouTube, Quora, all the search platforms, and the social platforms, you're doing interruption marketing, like Facebook, Instagram, also YouTube, YouTube, both, which is kind of fun. I went into that. Understand the differences because the way we structure our funnels and our ads are different based on if it's interruption versus search. And now today, we're moving into secret number two, where are they hiding? What, where are who hiding? Okay. So if secret number one's all about figuring out who is your dream customer, secret number two is figuring out where are these people actually congregating? Where are they hiding? Where are they at online? And so that's what I'm going to kind of go into here to talk about. And I'm going to read part, you guys care if I read a little bit of this? I don't know. I don't have to. If you want me to read it, be in comments like "Read it, Russell, read some of a book." Because I could tell you the story, but I already wrote it so might as well... Okay. I'm going to read part of it. Here we go. Secret number two, where are they hiding? One day in college, I knew I was supposed to be doing homework, but my ADHD in mind couldn't take it anymore. I had to stop writing even if it was just for a few minutes, I looked around and made sure no one else was looking, and then opened up a new tab on my browser. I started typing www.themat.com. And then within seconds I was taken to a new universe, a universe occupied by hundreds of thousands of wrestlers, just like me all around the world. This was our playground where we could talk about wrestling, post pictures and videos and debate about who was going to win every match happening in the next big tournament. I read a few articles and watched a video showing a new way to finish a single leg take down. Afterwards, I went to the forums. Oh, how I loved the forums. Who's better, Dan Gable in his prime or Cael Sanderson now? Somebody had just posted. Of course I had an opinion and it took everything I had to not spend the next 90 minutes writing my thoughtful response about how, if we shrunk Cael down to Dan's size and took him in the time machine, back to the 70s, Cael would've destroyed Dan head to head, but I knew I couldn't. My paper was due the next day and I was locked away in study hall until it was done. Angrily I closed down the tab and sat back in my chair to stretch before I made the trip back to reality. As I was leaning back, I started looking at my other wrestling friends who were locked away in study hall with me because of our bad grades. As I glanced towards our 133 pounder, I noticed a smile on his face, what? What could he be smiling about in study hall? As I shifted my gaze from his face to his monitor, I saw it. He was also on themat.com and he was writing his comments on why he thought Dan would actually beat Cael. Then looking at the other wrestlers in the room, I decided I had to know what they were doing. Faking like I had to go to the bathroom, I stood up and started to walk past their desks. I looked at our 157 pounder screen, yep, he was looking at themat.com too, the 178 pounder, themat.com. But what about our heavyweight? He had to be actually doing his homework, right? Nope. He was also on themat.com. And as I passed his computer, I quickly read his form reply that Bruce Baumgartner, two time Olympic heavyweight champ and four time Olympic medalist, would beat both Dan and Cael at the same time. What? Was he crazy? There's no way that Cael would lose to Bruce. And that's when it hit me. Themat.com was our little corner of the internet. All the wrestlers in study hall were congregated on that website talking about wrestling, but we weren't the only ones. Wrestlers in other colleges across the country, along with high school wrestlers and their parents, were on the website too. All around the world, hundreds of thousands of people were all together in this one spot to talk about the topic that we love most, wrestling. Honestly, this is the real power of the internet. It has allowed us to connect with like-minded people in a way that wasn't possible before. It allowed each of us with our unique and sometimes weird hobbies and interests to congregate with our people to discuss the things that meant the most to us. I'm going to stop. What do you guys think? Does that get you excited? Ah! Oh man, it's so much fun. I have a lot of stories in this book about that, but that is the power of congregation. So you guys have to understand. In secret number one we already identified who is our dream customer. And in the book, I go through a bunch of exercises to go deep into that. After you know who they are, then you've got to figure out where are these people hanging out? That's the real power of the internet. We figure out who our dream customer are. We figure out where they're congregating, and our job to figure out, hey, here they are. Here's all the wrestlers in the world that are on these websites. If you're in fitness, here's all the fitness people are reading these blogs. They're on these email newsletters. They're following this person on Instagram, this person on Facebook. Or if you're into cooking, where are the people interested in cooking? Where are they already congregating? Our job as marketers is not to go generate traffic. People are always like, "I need to create traffic." No, you don't need to create traffic. Traffic's already there. People are already there. They're already congregating based on what they're interested in. Your job is to figure out where are those congregations? And I need to come out there and I got to throw out my hooks in those congregations. So if I figure out there's 100,000 wrestlers here, I'm selling wrestling products. What do I do? I come over to that congregation, I throw a hook in and I try to grab those people out of that... In fact, I have a cool image. You guys want to see a cool image that I doodled? I'm a doodler. So that's what I do. In fact, the Traffic Secrets book I think has more doodles per pages than any of my other books. But here you can check out. This is the doodle I did for this. So here's the world, right? And throughout the world, there's random people who are interested in your topic all around the world. And they're all congregating together in a spot, right? So for all the wrestlers in the world, they're all congregating on themat.com. All the internet marketers in one spot, all the tennis players are somewhere, all the people in health and fitness, all the people who are interested in whatever you do, cooking, cleaning, legal advice, whatever, like whatever your thing is, everyone's got a different thing, right? Whatever your thing is, all the people are there and they're all congregating on certain websites. So your job as the marketer here is not to go create traffic. You don't got to come here trying to drum up business. You go to the marketplace. This is the marketplace for your people. They're all hanging out already. Steven Larson, that I'm going to quote later in the book, we talk more about this. But he talked about, people think that the market is their dream customer. It's like, no, no, no. The market's not your dream customer. The market is where the dream customer goes. So if you wake up in the morning and... Sorry, of course somebody's always going to try to call in the middle of Facebook live, or Instagram live. Okay. I'm back. Someone tried to call, but you don't go to... The market's not a person. You go to the market. If I want to take my family and go to the market, we're the dream customers. We wake up, we drive to the market. We're there, right? Same thing. This is the market. This is where your people are all going to. So you've got to figure out where's your market. And then you, as a marketer, you go to the market and you throw in your hooks. And you grab those people and pull them into your funnels and take them through your process. And you don't know which hooks are going to work, so you have a bunch of hooks. You're throwing in different hooks in here, until you figure out, this is the hook that grabs these people, we pull them in, and then we go and we can serve them through our funnels. So that's the big secret to understand. Who's your dream customer and where are they hanging out? After I figure out where they're hanging out, then I just go figure out how do I get their attention? What do I do to throw out hooks? We talked yesterday about interruption marketing. So if I know that, hey, my dream people, they're interested in business. They're on Facebook right now. So I know I can target their interest. People interested in business, or people interested in Tony Robbins or whoever, I figure who my dream customer, what are they passionate about? You know what they're interested in, then I go to Facebook or I go to YouTube, or I go to Instagram, or wherever I'm trying to go interrupt them at, I'm like, hey, they're all hanging out here and talking about the thing. I'm going to interrupt them. I'm going to throw my hooks in there. And if I do that right... We talked about this yesterday. If I do that, I throw my hook in there, I get their attention just for a moment, just long enough that I can then tell them a story to build up the perceived value of what I have to offer. And then I offer them the thing. That's the magic, you guys. This game becomes really fun when you start understanding the principles. It's not difficult. A lot of times people think, "Oh, this is complicated or hard," or whatever. It's like, no, it's really simple. Traffic is simple when you understand, all this is really becoming super hyper clear on who your dream customer is. That's what all of chapter one here in the book is all about. Who is your dream customer? And this is number two, now that I know who they are, where are they congregating? Where are they already hanging out? Again, I'm not trying to create traffic, I'm trying to figure out where's traffic already at, where are they already congregating? Where are they already hanging out at? Where's the marketplaces that are already there? I'm going to go find those market places. I'm going to drive to them. I'm going to throw my hooks out, try to get their attention, just long enough so I can tell them a story. After I tell them a story, the golden stories that increase the perceived value of what I'm selling. And then I make them the offer. And that is the game. That is the game that we are playing. So Josh just said, "What's the advice you'd give a 24-year-old looking to get into business?" Step number one, you need to understand this business. I would go get the book, read it, master it, learn it, apply it. After you read the book, I would go find somebody else's business and work for free for them and apply these principles. Go drive traffic for them and prove that you know what you're talking about. After you've done that and you've got some success for someone, then you can go say, "Hey, I read this book. I know how to get traffic. I did traffic for this guy for free. He's blown up his business right now, even in the middle of this economic downturn, because these principles work in an up economy and a down economy." Then go and tell someone else, "I did this for somebody else. I would love to do this service for you." And start doing services initially. Okay? If you have no idea where to start, start by mastering the skills in here and do the service. I wrote the Dotcom Secrets book and people from around the world learned these processes and some applied them in their own businesses, and some who didn't know what to do yet, took these and started applying them to other people's businesses. They became funnel builders. They became things like that. We had an event last summer, called Unlock The Secret. So it was a family event. We had a lot of kids there and things like that. And one of the guys there, Noah Lens, he was, I think 12 or 13 at the time, came and spoke. He said, "I read the Dotcom Secrets book. I listen to your podcast. And I started building funnels for other people." And I asked him, I said, "How much do you charge people to build a funnel for them right now?" He said, "I used to charge $25,000 but I stopped because I had so much business." He's like, "Now, I only build funnels for equity." I was like, "You're a 13-year-old kid. And you only build funnels for equity," for crying out loud. And how did Noah do it? He read the Dotcom Secrets book and mastered the funnel building. I've got a ton of people now who have read the Expert Secrets book and mastered storytelling. And now they have agencies, helping people build stories. There are even people who read the Traffic Secrets book, they master it and start agencies. So if you don't know where to start yet, learn the principles, master them, understand them, and then do them for other people. If you have a business, learn them and master them and do them for yourself. I don't care. The principles work, whether it's your business, somebody else's, but now is the time to learn it. So, oh, someone's asking what's in the Unlock The Secrets book. You'll have to find out. I'll give you a hint. It has to do with something amazing. Just kidding. Anyway, so there's some hints about section number two here, secret number two. Trying to think if I'm going to go any deeper today. Who's your dream customer? Where are they hiding? Yeah. I'll go deeper tomorrow into, yeah... These chapters are long. There's a lot of cool stuff. I've got tons of doodles, as you can see in here. So I will wrap it for today. Tomorrow we're going to start talking about... Now, so who's your dream customer? Where are they congregating? Tomorrow, we're going to get into the next concept, which is called, The Dream 100. And some of you guys think you know what that means, I'm going to tell you what it actually means. And we're going to walk through that tomorrow. So it'll be fun. Anyway, if you guys don't have a copy of your book yet, it is time. They're flying off the shelves. They're free, you just cover the shipping and handling, trafficsecrets.com, and you can go get it. And on top of that, there's a bunch of amazing, insane bonuses. In fact, I wish I could scroll down on my computer back here. If you scroll down, there's some crazy bonuses. There's an hour-long presentation. I did funnel hacking live, teaching about traffic secrets. You can get that immediately and start watching it. There's a video there from prince EA, the man, who's had over three billion views on his videos, his presentation is one of the bonuses there, to help show you how to make videos that go viral. Peng Joon who did a presentation at Funnel Hacking Live about how he spends a weekend and builds all of... He has a process, he spends a weekend, he records a bunch of videos and that is all of the assets he uses to drive traffic from every platform. His presentation's in there, a bunch of other bonus... I think like four or five hours of bonus presentations you get immediately, the second you get the book, I could easily sell each of those for 97 bucks by themselves. But you get them for free when you get the book for free. So it's like, if you hate free then don't get the book. But if you like free, you should go to trafficsecrets.com and get your copy of the book. And then for any of you guys who are like, "I want to get this into my head today. I'm sitting around, I'm bored." The audio book, this book doesn't ship till May 5th because we're going through an amazing publisher, Hay House, and the pub date... For anyone who's ever written a book, there's a pub date, pub date is May 5th. Two days ago, March 17th was the day I was first allowed to talk about this and start doing pre-orders. And May 5th is the day it ships. So we're in pre-order phase right now. But the good news is I spent three days in a studio reading this entire book and the audio book is available right now. So you can go and get it today. It is the order form bumps. So when you get the free book, if you want to upgrade you can get the audio book and start listening to it right now, and you can dump all this info into your brain without waiting any longer. So anyway, that's kind of fun. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this. For those of you guys who are in quarantine, go get this stuff, and you got something to study with your wife and your kids and your family, your spouse, your significant other, whatever it is, your business partners. You can go start watching stuff right now and start understanding these principles. Now there's this weird time where the nation and the world is all pausing for a second. And you can pause and go Netflix and chill, or you can stop and use this time to get this information into your brain so you can master it so that when the economy, we have this chance to go start... Going full out again in the economy, you'll be able to succeed. So now is the time you guys. Someone said, "Do you think that the book is free?" Yeah. So my hard costs on these books is a lot. I paid for the entire hard cost. I have to pay a shipping house to ship them. So there's people that take them, they put them in a box, they put the postings, and the postman takes these things, they do the process and then some guy walks to your house and hand delivers it. So you've got to cover those costs. I cover the cost for printing this book. I paid for it. It is a big book, 327 pages. So I paid for that. You do have to pay for the shipping though, because I'm not going to do everything for you. If you're not willing to pay for someone to come hand deliver it to your house, it's not going to be the right business for you. You are going to struggle in all things in life, especially running a business. But if you want to pay 10 bucks to get this thing hand delivered to your house from the US postal office, there you go. All you got to do is go to trafficsecrets.com and get your copy now. Anyway, with that said, you guys, I appreciate you all. Thank you so much for everything. You guys are awesome. And I'm having so much fun sharing these traffic secrets with you guys. Now is the time to double down, master the skill, learn it, understand it for yourself, for other people's business, whatever it is. This is a skill set. If you master this and understand it and learn it, it'll serve you for the rest of your life, no matter what business you are in. We always say that the people that can drive traffic in a business are the rain makers. They can make it rain. If you can make it rain, you can write your own paycheck for the rest of your life. Whether it be your own business and you go in there and you make it rain for your own business, or you do it for other people's businesses. The rain makers are the ones who can do anything. They set their own paychecks. They negotiate. The person who can come into business and say, "Hey, your business is struggling. I can turn on the rain." And like, well how much does it cost? I just want 20% of your business. Ah, I can't do that. Well, you're going to go under otherwise. Okay, well, make it rain. You can make it rain. And you get equity in companies like... This skillset will be the most valuable thing you can learn. And you're getting it for $10 of shipping and handling. This is 15 years of my life work, about everything I know about how to get traffic. And it's all here for you guys today. So anyway, I appreciate you guys. Go to trafficsecrets.com and get it. Oh and if you want, and again, the order form bump, you can get the audio book, start listening today.

You notice on all my pages there's videos, there's presentations, there's things that are happening, there's ads that are happening, like, how do you communicate? How do you use persuasion? How do you master story selling and things like that. That's what this book's all about. Number two, this is not about how you get on stage and speak for a million people. This is about how to master your message and putting it on your online platform, AKA your funnels. So how to build the funnels, how to communicate inside the funnels. And then number three here is how to get traffic or people into those funnels, into said funnels. So these three work hand in hand to help you to grow your company. Which one's my favorite? They're all my favorite. I bled, blood, sweat and tears to get these to you. This is 16, 17 years of my life work all put into here.
