Given a document in English, how can you estimate the ease with which someone will find they can read it?  Does it require a college-level of reading comprehension or is it something a much younger student could read and understand? While these questions are useful to ask, they don't admit a simple answer.  One option is to use one of the (essentially identical) two Flesch Kincaid Readability Tests.  These are simple calculations which provide you with a rough estimate of the reading ease. In this episode, Kyle shares his thoughts on this tool and when it could be appropriate to use as part of your feature engineering pipeline towards a machine learning objective. For empirical validation of these metrics, the plot below compares English language Wikipedia pages with "Simple English" Wikipedia pages.  The analysis Kyle describes in this episode yields the intuitively pleasing histogram below.  It summarizes the distribution of Flesch reading ease scores for 1000 pages examined from both Wikipedias.

Eric Flesch, CEO of Colombia-based oil and gas company Promigas, talks with LRN’s Ben DiPietro about being an ethics and compliance leader in Latin America, and why it is so important he lead by example when it comes to asking employees to adopt and live the company’s seven core values.   “The seven values that we have in our company are respect, integrity, solidarity, responsibility, commitment, excellence, and entrepreneurship. So every person has to not only understand what each of those values means, but they also just accept them...and work on a day-by-day basis with those values.” - Eric Flesch   Previous to becoming the President of Promigas, Eric Flesch held the position of president at the Argos Corporation in the US, a company that he was involved with for 39 years through various positions and in which, since 2005, he played a strategic role in the expansion and growth of the organization in the US. Flesch has a degree in civil engineering from Universidad del Norte, with an MBA in finance and marketing from West Coast University. He also has taken executive leadership courses from institutions such as Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley, and Northwestern, among others.   What You’ll Learn on This Episode: [1:19] How has Flesch’s career path led him to his current position at Promigas? [3:07] What are the values that form Promigas’ culture and how does Flesch instill these values in new employees? [5:39] How important is it that the employees hear from Eric Flesch and other leadership about the importance of ethics and values? [7:08] Why does Promigas place such a high importance on ethics while other companies in Latin America seem not to? [10:06] How has Promigas changed as a result of the cultural assessments they have done with LRN? [11:11] Has Flesch seen changes in the assessment process throughout the years?

You can find that on our website, lrn.com. Click on the resources tab and click on newsletter. We hope you can sign up, we'd love to have you. With me today is Eric Flesch. He is the CEO of Promigas, a Colombia base oil and gas company. We are very glad to have him with us today. Welcome Eric, and thanks for taking some time to join us. Eric Flesch: Hey Ben, how are you? Thank you for this invitation. I'm very pleased to join this podcast with you and all your team. Ben DiPietro: Good. We're glad to have you here. Tell our listeners a little bit about Promigas, what it does, where it operates and how long you've been CEO and give us a brief rundown of your career path and how it's led you to where you are now. Eric Flesch: Promigas is, I will say the largest public company, gas company in Colombia. It's listed in the stock market, was founded 45 years ago, and actually it has operations in Colombia and Peru. We are a cluster of 20 companies that, let's say, report to Promigas, are part of the Promigas group of companies. And basically we are in the transportation, the gas transportation and gas distribution business, also in the power distribution and gas services, engineering, of course, for gas projects. So we are, let's say, a company that leads the gas market in the transportation and gas distribution business in Colombia. Promigas is based in the main office in Barranquilla, which is on the Caribbean, on the north coast of Colombia. But we have other offices for our companies throughout the whole country. And of course, in Peru, in Lima and Trujillo also we have offices there. I joined Promigas almost three years ago. So my background, I'm still an engineer. I worked many, many years in other industries, in cement. Some of those years of experience were in the US and now I'm back in Colombia almost as I said before, three years ago, and leading this company. Ben DiPietro: Interesting journey that you've taken then. Tell us a little bit about the values that form the foundation of Promigas' culture. How do you instill these values in employees, especially new employees as they come on board? Eric Flesch: Promigas, one of the main focus of the company is to have a very strong corporate governance. And as part of it, we have our values which are very important for every employee. Not only to understand what those means, but also to take them, to take a lead at those. The seven values that we have in our company are integrity, solidarity, responsibility, commitment, excellence, and entrepreneurship. So every person has just, not only to understand what each of those values mean, but also just they accept them, they declare as part of the company that they work in the day-to-day basis with those values. And of course, we, in our, in the way we perform, in the way we think, in the way we make decisions, those values are part of it. It's not only a theory that is in a PowerPoint is something that is part of us, part of our DNA. Related Article: 6 Steps To Using Integrity And Compliance To Create A Culture Of Ethics. - Interactive Services So every person in the company, which in total, we are over 3000 people in the cluster of 20 companies, as part of Promigas, they take those values as part of each one of them. And in our decisions, in our day-to-day is a natural part of our work. So, we feel very pleased that this is the way we work. And we periodically twice a year, three times a year, we just train our people and we have some kind of, let's say training sessions or conversations where we refresh those values. So, I will say proudly that everybody, all our people over 3000, they take those values as part of them. And they take it for every decision and every performance we do in our company. Ben DiPietro: So how important then is it, that the employees hear from yourself and the other senior leadership and the board about the importance of ethics and values and creating the culture of compliance, transparency, and diversity that you're aiming to do? Eric Flesch: It is extremely important, leadership means that the leader of the company in this case, myself has to in some way be an example about how to perform in the company and I like to be very close to each one of our employees, we have a plan to have a corporate video conference every quarter, over 1000, sometimes over 2000 of our employees can join in our video conference where we share the results of our company. We share our projects, the way we think is we are going to in the future, et cetera, et cetera. And also as part of these conversations our values and we like to listen to our employees, they ask questions and we are very open and we encourage to have a very close relationship with each one of our employees. That's the kind of management we deploy in Promigas everyday. Ben DiPietro: Why does the company then place such a high importance on ethics as not as many companies in Latin America seem to, and what types of investments do you make in your E&C program to ensure it has the capability and gravitas to enact the agenda that you're setting out. And how has this differentiation paid off for you on the business side of the operation? Eric Flesch: I would say Latin America and especially Colombia, which is part of the Caribbean, Latinos. The Latino culture is more informal. And in some way, if you compare the culture with any other company in Europe or the US, the DNA of a person is definitely totally different. So, we respect that culture, the natural culture of every person, but we don't negotiate and we encourage all of our employees, every employee to take the corporate culture. So we tell them look, we respect the natural culture, we respect that you like to dance, or you like to sing or you like to be outspoken, you like to be Latino, be Caribbean, that's okay. But regarding our corporation, we have with corporate culture, and this is what we would like to be, and this is what we like just to work with you along the coming years. And those values are something that we invite everybody to take them and we implement training sessions to make sure everybody understands, everybody agrees. If anyone has a question, we make sure through, let's say tests, very friendly tests on the computers to people to respond, case studies, et cetera, where we differentiate the way we should act, we should make decisions we should perform. And we are very, let's say jealous or we're very strict that anyone has the perfect understanding of our ethics in the company. As part of our corporate governance, this is a key piece. We are listed in the stock market in Colombia, also we issue bonds internationally. Two years ago, we issued some bonds in the US very successfully. And as part of these results, as part of this culture, our company is very well valued and the pay-off is that, we can just go and launch some bonds or launch some kind of, let's say programs that the market takes, because our company right now enjoys a very high reputation, as part of the ethics, as part of the corporate governance, which is very strong and is an example for any company in Latin America and the region. Related Article: Key Role For E&C In Promoting Environmental, Social, Governance Ben DiPietro: To that end, Promigas has been a long-time partner with LRN and we've helped you conduct three cultural assessments over the past seven years. How has your company changed as a result of these assessments? What have you learned about your culture from these assessments that surprised you either in a good way or bad way? Eric Flesch: You're right. In the last seven years, we have had those assessments and every time our results are better and better and better. That is very encouraging for us because we made sure that by having our people with a perfect understanding on ethics, perfect understanding on how to behave in the company and understanding the corporate culture, this is for Promigas very, very important to let us just think internationally. As I said before, to do things like bond issues and all those kinds of things. So we see that paid off. And of course, by measuring the way we are progressing, we just adjust our programs, just to keep that track of getting better and better results on those measures. Ben DiPietro: Have you seen some changes in the questioning? Has it been the same assessment each time? How is that assessment part of it evolved if you have? Eric Flesch: We have seen some adjustments and for good and this is a feedback, constant feedback on our programs. And of course, this led in Promigas to get better results on the program itself. Ben DiPietro: Obviously COVID-19 is changing the way we all work, live and interact. How has it changed the way you're doing your job? And what do you think will be the lasting impacts that occur because of this pandemic, as it relates to working in offices and just doing business? Eric Flesch: Well, this COVID pandemic is something that no one had it in mind before. It was some thinkable that these would have had happened, but happened. And of course, when we realized last March 2020 about the pandemic, we made several decisions. First, we wanted to just ensure that there were workers, our employees, to have a good health just to protect them and to protect their families. So, we decided to organize everybody to work from home office and Promigas was supplying and was supporting to have everybody in their homes, their computer, their chairs. The ergonomic chairs they use in the office, the modem, the internet, et cetera to have a very good communication. Second, our other target we have at the moment was to ensure that we were rendering a good public service, transmitting gas, to all the industry, the commerce, and the residents in Colombia and Peru. As of today, after almost a year of this pandemic, I can say proudly that our service has been excellent. We haven't had any trouble, we haven't had any interruption at all. And that was a result of our plan just to have everybody working with a good communication as if we were in our office, like normally. So the mutual work, I would say, has been outstanding the way we have done that as of today. Last, we focused on the communities in Colombia, Peru. Colombia and Peru are countries where poverty is high. And there are communities where we take gas to some regions in Colombia with a huge needs. And we decided to give our support by donations. So we decided to donate around $7 million, 6 million of that to Colombia and around 1 million to Peru, basically for three things, one to the health, let's say, the employees to have all the PPEs, second to support hospitals to buy respirators, and third to buy and to support rural communities by giving them basic needs like food or clothes or whatever that they would need at home. Related Article: Covid: Doing What’s Right Requires Trust, Connection So we decided to do that and in both countries, Colombia and Peru and everybody, those communities were very, very grateful with Promigas. This is part of what Promigas work with communities in the past before. Not by giving those high donations but we are also part of those communities and we are just trying to give all of our support to them by offering [inaudible 00:14:59], by helping kids to learn by building schools, et cetera, et cetera. So those were the main three things we decided. And since that moment, March of 2020, up to now, we have still about 65% of our employees working in home offices. And then the others who are coming to the office, we have all the plan to keep them protected, not to put them at risk of getting infected. So all of that value of safety by having all those guidance on health and all those checkups and everything, we just follow that in a very strict way. That's the new, let's say, work that we adjusted our company mutually and so far, I would say we have been very, very successful and we have to be hope that after, we have now the vaccine in the near future, gradually we could come back again to the office to work as it was the normal work before. Ben DiPietro: Yeah. It's hard to believe it's been a year already. It's amazing. Yeah. It seems like so much longer in a lot of ways. That's a be nice to get back out and hopefully soon. I want to thank you again for taking time with us. I appreciate it. And I hope you stay well and safe until we can all get vaccinated and get back out into the world. So, thank you very much, Eric. We appreciate you. Eric Flesch: Thank you for your invitation, Ben. It has been a pleasure just to be with you and anytime you're more than welcome. Outro: We hope you enjoyed this episode.

We’re back with another show in the Old Masters series today. First I need to tell you about something you probably never knew about before: The RCA principle. I end up telling even some of my advanced mentoring clients about the RCA principle, which I learned about from Joe Karbo in his book “The Lazy Man’s Way To Riches.” The RCA principle is a copywriting concept that goes like this: “Build the best radio you can, and take as many parts out of it as you can until it stops working.” In copywriting terms, that means: Write the best (whatever) you can, and then whittle it down to the smallest number of words, possible. So that’s the RCA principle. Sounds simple enough, right? All you have to do is write big and then edit it down to as tight as possible. The problem is, most people I talk to about this have NO IDEA how to do this. Fair enough. I didn’t learn this in school myself. Even on the college newspaper. Even in my private tutorial with the department chairman who used to write for Time magazine. So, to do today’s show, I had to turn to the Old Master of concise, powerful writing himself, Rudolf Flesch. You know him already through the readability index he helped create, although you may not have realized it. If you look for a readability score on your copy, as many writers do, that comes directly from Flesch’s work. He was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1911. In 1938, he fled to the United States to escape the Nazis. By 1943, he had earned a PhD in Library Science from Columbia University. It was then and there he developed the Flesch Reading Ease Formula, which has evolved into the “readability index” that so many copywriters use today. I took one of his books, The Art of Readable Writing, and cracked it open like a walnut. Then I picked out the most important pieces… … .to show you how to use the tools of an Old Master to implement the RCA principle. On the show, we go over these five steps, harvested from The Art of Readable Writing. And, as a special bonus for Copywriters Podcast subscribers, we also showed an equivalent step each time for achieving a Joe Karbo RCA principle result. 1. Research and organize KARBO EQUIVALENT: Design the biggest, best radio you can. Don’t build it yet. Just design it. 2. Give shape to your idea KARBO EQUIVALENT: Build the biggest, bestest radio you can. 3. Make longer words shorter KARBO EQUIVALENT: Use chips, PC boards, or anything else you can to make the big bad radio work more efficiently, 4. Organize your copy with shorter words into a chronological story. KARBO EQUIVALENT: Rearrange the parts of your big new radio into the smallest space possible. 5. Edit ruthlessly to get your story into the fewest words possible. KARBO EQUIVALENT: This is where you take out all the parts of the radio until it stops working.

It is my great pleasure to announce a new monthly podcast project, called Perpetual Chess: Chess Books Recaptured. This series will be on the same podcast feed as “regular” Perpetual Chess, and on the show, we will reflect upon and synthesize classic chess books! We will try to place the book in historical context, give a few favorite quotes from the book and and offer some chess improvement takeaways. We will even drop a couple of chess blindfold puzzles at the end!    This series will feature a rotating cast of guest co-hosts, and this month I am happy that USCF Master Sam Copeland of Chess.com is hosting with me to discuss one of everyone’s favorite chess books, The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal.  Please check it out and then let me know what you think, whether via email, The Perpetual Chess Facebook Group or Twitter. Show notes, timestamps and links below, as always. I hope you like it!  Note- if you are not seeing hyperlinks, you can find them at the podcast website: https://www.perpetualchesspod.com/new-blog/2019/11/15/bonus-pod-bonus-pod-discussing-the-life-and-games-of-mikhail-tal-with-nm-sam-copeland-chess-books-recaptured-series     0:00- My somewhat rambling introduction of the vision for Perpetual Chess: Chess Books Recaptured.  Mentioned: The Overdue Podcast, Animal Spirits: Re-Kindled, The Ringer: Rewatchables, Affiliate links:  If you buy a Forward Chess book using this link, or an amazon product using this link, it helps support the podcast without costing you any additional money. The same is true if you sign up for a chess.com premium account (as you should) using this link.   4:15- This month’s guest co-host, Sam Copeland joins the conversation  Mentioned: GM Murray Chandler, IM Jeremy Silman’s Review of The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal   7:30- About the authors, Mikhail Tal, Iakov Damsky  Mentioned: Kramnik: My Life and Games, The Art of Defense in Chess,   Chess Brilliancy, Ken Neat (translator), The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Fire on Board   13:30- We jump into the meat of The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal, commencing with Sam's reading the opening quote of the book and recalling a few other favorite quotes and games.  Mentioned: Alexander Koblencs 28:00- We add in a bit more color of lessons drawn from GM Genna Sosonko’s The World Champions I Knew and Tal-Botvinnik 1960.  32:30- We select a few favorite games from the book. Mentioned: Botvinnik Tal 1960, Game 6 , Tal’s Most Famous Quote, Donner-Tal 1961, Capablanca, Alekhine, Smyslov-Tal 1964, John Nunn, Chess.com’s CAPS System, Dr. Kenneth Regan  41:30- Chess improvement takeaways: This book can increase your love of chess, which is ultimately indispensable if you want to improve. Chess is a game between humans- initiative in a game can be more important than objective truth  Play openings that suit your style and get you excited to play. Mentioned: The Benoni Defense  51:00- Quibbles. I mentioned the lack of quality e-book for this book-  I am happy to report that Everyman Chess has now informed that The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal is coming soon to Chessable and Forward Chess!  Mentioned: Sam’s excellent video recap of Tal vs. Flesch 1981, The Magic of Mikhail Tal, Checkmate: The Love Story of Mikhail Tal and Sally Landau  57:00- Thanks so much to Sam Copeland for all of his work on this project!

This week, we're talking scales and etudes. Are they the foundational blocks on which your entire technique is built? Or more like raw vegetables that you have to choke down if you want to stay healthy? Akiko actually had a scale class as a kid, while I got a crash course in scales from my Curtis teacher Felix Galimir (who had studied with Carl Flesch himself). Etudes were a different story. Both of us went through a progression of Sevcik, Schradieck, Kretuzer, Dont, and all the rest. But back then, we just played without knowing why. These days, we like to know the point of an etude before we dive in: the key that unlocks each etude's benefit. Developing my Virtuoso Master Course has given me a chance to reevaluate my relationship with the classics, but I wanted Akiko's take on the topic as well.

Mindset: FINE TUNE DOCUMENT PERFORMANCE On this episode, we look at the SLAPP test. Key tactics we can use to improve the productivity of the contract document. We'll cover: • Academic studies showing the effectiveness of visual contract elements • The picture superiority effect • Why easy to read is easy to like • Contract formatting tips The SLAPP test: http://bit.ly/CLL_SLAPP > Step 1 (Structure)- Is your contract structured like a Reverse Sandwich so it’s useful & usable? Step 2 (Likeable)- Does your contract look good? Step 3 (Automated)- Is your contract ready for low-code automation? Step 4 (Plain language )- How easy is your contract to read & understand? Step 5 (Pictures)- Do you use pictures, flowcharts, graphics, icons, tables & other visuals to break up text? > ‘But I am simple in my communications!’ I hear you say. Well, there is an easy way to check. Go to your Sent email folder. Find the last email you sent which had more than 3 sentences. Click https://www.webpagefx.com/tools/readable/ & paste that text in. See what score you get… try re-writing & simplifying if over grade 9. > Formatting skills: https://www.howtogeek.com/school/microsoft-word-document-formatting-essentials/lesson5/all/ Check the costs of poor writing using the ReWrite for Change calculators (http://rewriteforchange.com/calculators-2/).

I got this small rubber ball to squeeze to strengthen the muscles in my left hand, when I started playing guitar again a couple years ago after a 40-year “break.” You want your copy to be as strong as possible, too. Remember that good copy has a job to do… to move qualified prospects to take action. That takes muscle! Today’s episode tells you how to make your copy more muscular. Copy is powerful. You’re responsible for how you use what you hear on this podcast. Most of the time, common sense is all you need. But if you make extreme claims… and/or if you’re writing copy for offers in highly regulated industries like health, finance, and business opportunity… you may want to get a legal review after you write and before you start using your copy. My larger clients do this all the time. These are seven easy-to-use tips. You might want to cut and paste the show notes from our home site, copywriterspodcast.com, and make yourself a little checklist. Use the checklist to go over your copy after you’ve written it, to make it more muscular. I’ll give you two tips, and then five more from three great books… we’ll include the titles and amazon links in show notes. The books are: The Art of Plain Talk, by Rudolph Flesch; Writing Tools, by Roy Peter Clark; and The Magic Power of Emotional Appeal, by Roy Garn. TIP 1. Your first tip for making your writing more muscular comes directly from me. In fact, I used my recently strengthened left hand to type this up for the show notes: Use active verbs / active sentences / and write about things the reader or listener can easily visualize. Example: The Copywriting Podcast is listened to by thousands of people. // weak, passive Thousands of people listen to the Copywriting Podcast. // strong, active TIP 2. From me: Short words / short sentences / short paragraphs — but do mix it up. If every word, sentence and paragraph is short, your copy quickly becomes boring and ineffective. But do what you can to keep your writing clear and understandable by using simple words, sentences and paragraphs more often than not. Complexity creates confusion in the prospect’s mind – and the confused mind does not buy. TIP 3. In Rudolph Flesch’s The Art of Plain Talk, slavishly follow these rules from the Chapter “Gadgets of Language,” where Flesch is quoting another author, H.W. Fowler, in his book “The King’s English”: These five rules: ⁃ Prefer the familiar word to the far-fetched. ⁃ Prefer the concrete word to the abstract. ⁃ Prefer the single word to the circumlocution. ⁃ Prefer the short word to the long. ⁃ Prefer the Saxon word to the Romance. Let’s look at a couple of these. Prefer the concrete word to the abstract: For weight loss. Abstract: You can see impressive results in less than a month. Concrete: You can drop three dress sizes in less than a month. For Facebook advertising, Romance word: On Facebook, you’ll experience more transactions with the same ad spend. For Facebook advertising, Saxon word: On Facebook, you’ll kill it more often with the same ad spend. Note: To get you started on this, there’s a Wikipedia page on words with Anglo-Saxon origin. Link in the show notes. TIP 4. From Rudolph Flesch again, Chapter 4, “The Grammar of Gossip” Always put people in your writing, as often as possible. It makes the writing more interesting and keeps the reader engaged. “The thing to do in such a situation is to go through the text sentence by sentence and to look for the logical-not the grammatical-subject. After a while you will discover that the logical subject is always a person and that every sentence can be written so that this person is mentioned.” Non-people: The critique was so effective that when the ideas were put into effect, the conversion rate on the VSL more than doubled. A person: Brett took the ideas from my critique and put them to work. The ideas were so effective that Brett doubled his conversion rate on the VSL. TIP 5. From Roy Peter Clark: Put your strongest words at the start and end of each sentence. (example - before and after) TIP 6. From Roy Peter Clark: Use internal cliffhangers. Keeps ‘em reading! TIP 7. From Roy Garn: Use the most powerful Emotional Appeals as often as you can, logically and plausibly. The four most powerful Emotional Appeals are: - Self-preservation - Money - Romance - Recognition This is practically a full copywriting course in itself. Self-preservation can mean survival, or immortality, or even keeping your job. Money… well, as Danny DeVito said in the movie The Hiest, “That’s why they call it money!” Romance is of course love and sex, but it’s also taking an ordinary idea and making it special, like the experience of driving a new car and making it romantic. Recognition can include prestige, appealing a person’s sense of identity, and personalizing a message by using a person’s name. So that wraps up Writing with Muscle. Learn to use these tips and with practice, they’ll become habits.

Colin Marshall sits down in Westwood with William Flesch, professor at Brandeis University and author of Comeuppance: Costly Signaling, Altruistic Punishment, and Other Biological Components of Fiction. They discuss José Saramago's way with obscure Biblical episodes; literary Darwinism and its discontents; why and how we get concerned with what happens to fictional characters at all; the difference between stories we care about versus stories we don't; how we recommend books, films, and shows to friends, thus caring about how they care about how characters care about one another; Michael Haneke's scary Funny Games viewed with an audience and Michael Haneke's ludicrous Funny Games viewed at home; what's so great about Wittgenstein; the trade-off between humanizing and monsterizing your viliains, as with Hitler in Max and The Boys from Brazil; the perfect biological pitching of Onion's 9/11 headline "Hijackers Surprised To Find Selves In Hell"; what makes the 19th-century novels of George Eliot, Anthony Trollope, Charles Dickens, and William Makepeace Thackeray so gripping; our desire to feel we've misjudged characters; Buffy, Angel, and our bets about liking them; and characterization and reversion to type all the way from Shylock to Stewie Griffin.
