Language is without doubt the single most valuable tool we use, and in its use, it ironically builds barriers. Fortunately in recent years with the rise of companies like Duolingo, those barriers are becoming more opaque. In this episode, Bob Meese, Chief Business Officer at Duolingo, joins the show to discuss all the innovative ways that Duolingo is making language learning a more feasible aspect of our lives.Bob started at Google with a solid 8-year stretch that served as a proving ground for his own professional philosophy. An integral component of that philosophy is to be employee-centric in his vision and execution. In his move to Duolingo, Bob carried that thinking forward. Firmly established at Duolingo, Bob shares with us the impact that the company has on their customers, and even with his own family— namely in making language learning just plain fun. Bob also explores the importance of language, and how Duolingo is striking a firm balance between creating revenue and profit while providing such an altruistic product. In this episode, we cover: A quick look at Bob's time at Google - and how his philosophy on professional inertia played into his decision to move on to Duolingo. (02:47) Why Bob encourages his star employees to shine, even if it results in their decision to seek opportunities beyond their role and the company. (07:28) A risk worth taking: The journey that led Bob and his family back to Pittsburgh to begin his career at Duolingo. (10:57) An overview of Duolingo including current stats, its evolution, and what is on the horizon. (16:20) A discussion about the monetization of Duolingo, what the company looked like when Bob joined as CRO, and how Duolingo established its identity. (22:51) Bob reflects on his experience with changing company culture - and shares why he would do it all over again as he looks back on his years at Duolingo. (35:14) Duolingo's revenue growth, the timing of the IPO, and why operating as a private company still works after recently going public. (41:05) Joubin and Bob discuss the impact of language and how it is a core part of human identity - and why Duolingo strives to make learning languages more accessible.

With C class properties selling for cap rates equivalent to B and A class properties, a number of operators are exchanging into A class. These properties are easier to hold for the long-term because they don't have the same looming cap-ex to deal with over the next several years. Today's guest, Keith Wasserman, Co-Founder of Gelt Inc. in Southern California, started out with heavier value-add projects in Bakersfield, then Phoenix, plus other Western markets. More recently, he's been trading up to newer vintage properties for longer-term holds. Learn more at https://www.streetsmartsuccess.com
To make the leap from HR to sales may seem like a significant obstacle to surmount. For Jennifer Brannigan, CRO at Pendo, it was an easy choice to make.

Chi and the Ten Rings Bus Fight Scene https://twitter.com/that_mc/status/1459613123590066180?s=20 Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Finally watching Shang-Chi, here as a bus operator to rate the SFT transit factors of The Bus Scene: Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc SFT (San Francisco Transit?) is using a New Flyer D60 articulated 60 foot motor coach for the 1 California. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc But the bus is headed south on Noe at 21st St, they are seriously off route! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I like these brushed steel and green cushion seats, they look nicer and harder to clean than muni's Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc That's a real ad for the jazz and blues festical you can find in muni buses Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc As a bus operator, this is the moment I pop my parking brake and open the doors. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This would Definitely Happen Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Energy sword arm man cuts through the floor of the articulating section. Also wears sensible boots for working on a bus! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This cuts through an air hose under the bus! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Our bus operator, played by Michael-Anthony Taylor, discovers his service brake isn't working. He's mashing on the treadle (pedal) and not stopping. That's terrible! And he's wearing earphones. That's terrible. He definitely could be charged with an avoidable incident by SFT. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc He should be reaching for the Parking and Emergency Brake on his left control panel: Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Cap number 8964 would be a part time operator at muni, but SFT might have a different scheme? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Now we are heading west on California at Mason St, and this is a serious hill. There could very well be cable cars in the way. Not to mention this has been a 40 minute bus ride from 21st and Noe, minimum. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Quick digression on how Air Brakes work. Energy sword arm man cut the brake lines, which would let all the air out of the system. When this happens, a backup, mechanical brake called the Spring Brake activates. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc The spring brake held open by air pressure. If there is no pressure, the brake is applied, and the wheels will not turn. Air brakes have a warning, that is audible as a very loud, continuous buzzer, whenever the air pressure drops below a certain threshold. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc A bus operator will stop the bus when this low air pressure warning goes off, because if the air brakes keep loosing pressure, the spring brakes WILL activate, and the bus is going to stop very very suddenly. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Bus operators don't want to stop very hard because that's how you get Falls On Board. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc When bus operators want to know what's going on inside our passenger area, we look in the mirror up top, not over our shoulder Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This helps us keep our attention on steering the bus, to avoid cars that will definitely make illegal left turns in front of us all day every day. Powell and California. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc OUCH Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Operator wasn't even wearing his seat belt! Workmans Comp not going to cover this. Also: Fall on Board. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is top quality bus driving. Also get the line "Every time I try to drive a bus I get yelled at" which a) lol and b) that's just being a bus operator. We get yelled at whenever we try to drive a bus too. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I'm going to take this part by part. First of all, I want to get into the operators seat this easily just once in my entire life. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This space isn't empty, there's a big compartment with computers and electronics in there. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Operators lunch! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Seat Belt, should have been fastened! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is the parking and emergency brake. This is what the operator should have pulled way back when Shang-chi threw the first punch. If you are ever in a situation where you are unexpectedly in a run away bus and need to stop it, this yellow handle is the thing to grab. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Some operators really do sit with the seat all the way down and the wheel up and forward, but I find this very uncomfortable, like driving with your chin. When a bus operator takes over a bus, they immediately start by adjusting the seat to their preference. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Shang-Chi knows how to check on the passengers! Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Every bus has a fire extinguisher, and we check every day before we pull out of the yard. It is intended for exactly these situations. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Every bus operator cheers when the scooters get mashed to shreds. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I think this is more or less how an articulated section would react. I don't actually operate articulated motor coaches, so IDK Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is Stockton at Bush, on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I have no idea if this is what's down there. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc The rear view mirrors are bus operators best friends. We cannot safely turn the bus if they aren't adjusted properly. I would take a moment to check and make sure they are how I like them after this. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is how everyone asks to be let into the bus when we aren't at a stop. Too real. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I'm impressed that she knew how to operate the door lever. When the doors are open, an interlock activates that prevents the bus from moving. This would also have been an option to try for an out of control bus. Also, that's where you keep your coffee canteen, true facts. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc DON'T LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER WHILE DRIVING! The hazards are ahead of you. Aim High in Steering, everyone. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Now we are heading into the Stockton Street tunnel. This is MC Escher's Hill, apparently. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I Laughed. So. Hard. at the stop request gag. Saw it coming from miles away OMG. On Muni, someone would absolutely have used this within 20 seconds of the start of the fight. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc We are finally coming to a stop at Larkin and North Point. Quite a ways to warp from Union Square IMO. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc This is the look I give passengers when I stopped too far from the curb. Good bus stops are hard. I hope you enjoyed my thread as much as I enjoyed this scene. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Unfortunately I think this guy isn't going to keep his job as a bus operator, though. I'm glad he's ok, that was a nasty knock he took. Let's hope he lands on his feet. Maybe he'll drive charters? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc I need to add a coda to this thread. First of all, amazing to see it get so much attention. I did not expect this. I guess this is where I make a soundcloud plug? Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc But really I just want you to support public transport by riding the bus more and driving a personal car less. Support policies that fund public transport, and support policies that prioritize people over parking spots. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And thank your operator when you get off the bus. Every "Thank you" makes our day on the road a little better. I'm still a rookie operator, new to the job, but it make a difference to me. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Also mad props to all the talented people involved in bringing this scene to the screen: @SimuLiu and @awkwafina and Michael-Anthony Taylor and @big9nasty (energy sword arm man, or razorfist, I learned) Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc Brad Allan and Andy Cheng, choreographers for the scene, and the stunt performers, and the stunt driver (Kial Butler, Andrea Berchtold, and Cameron Ambridge have stunt driver credits in the film) Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And also the special effects teams that put in I am sure untold hours to bring this scene to life. Huge congratulations and thanks to those who brought us this entertainment. Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc And THANK YOU each and every one for riding Muni.

Unseen, they stalk their targets from thousands of feet in the air. Operators are piloting them from military bases halfway across the world. At any moment, they could launch a strike that comes without warning. The attack drone was supposed to be a symbol of the era of precision warfare — a way to wage wars with fewer casualties on both sides. It's a technology that's been honed since it was first dreamed up during World War 1. But are drones actually precise enough? Do drones desensitize us to the casualties of civilians caught between us and our enemies? In this episode, we will explore the past, present and future of drone warfare.

Carving her own path is certainly one way to describe how Christina Augustine, COO at Bloomreach, has chosen to do her work. With a distinct set of experiences, beginning with a unique college thesis, to owning her own patent, and eventually leading Bloomreach through successful product launches, Christina has held her own over the course of her career. And her fortitude is now paying off. Christina's natural competitiveness has not only helped her shape her own leadership abilities, but she continues to carry these skills forward. While her decision to leave Bain & Company was a difficult one, that decision has returned its value tenfold. From her role as an individual contributor to the now COO at Bloomreach, Christina has brought a tenacity that deserves attention. Check out this episode to learn how she has honed her abilities to evaluate and consciously decide where she wants to be, and how she applies her own grit to the workplace.In this episode, we cover: Christina's college thesis on the Julia set, her experience at HBS, and a look at her patent. (2:20) More on Christina's background and the “gnarly” aspect of her role at Bain & Company - and why she loves volunteering at Girl Scouts. (06:18) Why competitiveness is a great leadership trait and how Christina puts it into practice - and why she chose to make the difficult decision to leave Bain and join Bloomreach as an individual contributor.

Ruben Cardenas is one of the haulers involved with the Plus company, among the scads of tech companies dipping their toes into freight hauling as they work on ever-more-technically-capable advanced driver assist systems. And Plus isn't shy about using marketing terminology like "self-driving" and "autonomous driving" to describe their systems. Cardenas speaks to his day-to-day on-highway testing of the Plus systems, helping refine system capabilities. The interview with Cardenas was conducted by my colleague over at fleet magazine CCJ, Editor Jason Cannon, for CCJ's weekly video-centric 10-44 series of talks. Cardenas is no stranger to the owner-operator world, with 11 years of truck ownership in his rearview before he joined up with Plus in his current role in 2018. His long experience begs the question, of course: Why would a career hauler get involved with a company that seems bent on the eventual removal of drivers from the steering wheel, maybe even the seat? It's complicated.

Some tourism operators fear they are kissing another summer of international business goodbye after yesterday's MIQ announcement. Come mid-November double vaccinated NZ returnees will spend seven days, instead of the current 14, in MIQ before heading to home isolation for a further three days and a final Covid test before being freed. The government has also signalled a phased move to more home isolation in the first quarter of next year. But at this stage it is basically for New Zealanders coming home, there's no date for international tourists to return and one of the biggest domestic markets, Auckland is penned in. Fiordland Jet co-owner Chris Adams talks to Lisa Owen.
Oct. 28, 2021 - After state lawmakers and then-Gov.

Consider today's Overdrive Radio edition in the context of Overdrive Executive Editor Alex Lockie's reporting on the intermodal niche released a week and a half back, and the system-wide backlogs being experienced all around the container-moving supply chains, particularly evident at the nation's West Coast ports. The feature was another entry in our "Niche Hauls" series of features on freight segments where owner-ops are in high demand: https://www.overdriveonline.com/business/article/15279445/intermodal-haulers-fight-off-a-system-collapse-at-ports What we didn't get in that three-part report was a perspective from among the top volume ports on the East Coast – for that, Overdrive Editor Todd Dills reached back to small fleet owner-operator George Berry, working out of the Port of Virginia principally. He's a uniquely qualified source to voice owner-operators' views on just where congestion issues at the ports originate. For years now he's been a voice in a group called “For Truckers By Truckers” on social media around port and other intermodal drivers' issues, and his small fleet leases with five owner-operators now out of Virginia. For Truckers By Truckers continues today as principally an intermodal informational source for drivers and owner-operators of all types: https://www.facebook.com/ForTruckersbyTruckers Since the President of the United States raised port issues as a national concern almost two weeks ago, there's been no small amount of finger-pointing to just who's to blame among supply chain parties. Yet as George Berry tells it, the backlog issue is multifaceted, stressed by mismanaged sorting, pressure on intermodal haulers to pickup on the "last free day," a generalized, widespread shortage of chassis as they're tied up by various parties, and much, much more. Undue detention issues arise then at the warehouse receiving end more often than not if the hauler's lucky enough to get an open chassis. Yet among it all, there's good news for that common problem even in intermodal work, where "free" detention time is dwindling at receivers, and commonly low intermodal owner-operator revenue levels annually are rising. Berry estimates the current high-demand/relatively-shorter-supply situation could yield as much as a $50K revenue boost annually (or around 50%) for such operators. Berry describes himself as a "California kid," and while his intermodal career has been centered in Virginia since early this century, he feels California's emissions regs and other restrictions have exacerbated ports' overload out West. That traces straight back to the California Air Resources Board's Drayage and wider Truck & Bus rule restricting port operators and then the wider trucking community to running only newer-model-year vehicles. Those restrictions were put in place on pre-2007-emissions-spec engines serving the ports well before trucks running in the rest of the state, furthermore. "They've kind of created this conundrum, in my opinion, on their own," he says in this podcast. "And when they say, 'You make it, you're going to sit in it and stew," and that's basically what's going to happen with Los Angeles/Long Beach."
Mark Anderson, CEO at Alteryx, joins Joubin to talk about how he crafted his leadership ethos, which he often compares to a great game of golf. While Mark is currently at Alteryx, it is his foundation at Palo Alto Networks that serves as the bedrock for how he approaches his work. In this episode, Mark reflects on his time at Palo Alto and offers insight that anyone would be wise to pay close attention to; close attention being an essential part of Mark's ethos, as he says the “absence of a plan” is not part of his DNA. With this mindset, Mark breaks down the deep value of his meticulous planning and how it allows time for each important focus in his life, ranging from work, family, golf, or crucially as salient, when to leave some things by the wayside. Mark and Joubin also discuss their experiences during Palo Alto's acquisition of Evident.io, how it has impacted Mark's approach to the gritty specifics of acquisitions as a whole, and more.In this episode, we cover: How Mark used his grit to put himself through college - and the parallel between sales and the game of golf. (3:22) Why “the absence of plan” is not part of Mark's DNA - and why he is intentional about the time he puts into work, family, and friends. (7:15) Palo Alto Networks: factors Mark considered as he evaluated the company, a look at his recruitment experience, and his 3 non-negotiables for hiring. (12:55) Mark reflects on some of Palo Alto's wins, including their major stock increase in 2014 and the acquisition of Evident.io. (20:46) More on Palo Alto: Mark talks about Palo Alto's change management approach and some of the challenges of the acquisition process. (26:08) Mark provides an overview of Alteryx and talks about the joys of being on the Alteryx team - and shares why 2021 became “the year of transformation.” (31:55) Why good leaders should help their teams learn from failures. (42:28) Mark's advice to the aspiring CEO and his takeaways from his journey thus far.

Josh Kaplan was an early employee at Morning Brew and was a product manager during their meteoric rise as a media company. Now, he's taken what he has learned as an operator in a creative space and applied it to his role as co-founder and CEO of Smooth Ops to help content creators scale their businesses.Today's conversation is about the deeply challenging logistics involved in the creator economy. Josh contends that most creators find themselves thinking relatively short-term. While it's important to focus on producing great content, it's also crucial to plan for the future—not just the next podcast episode or newsletter. Creators need operators as partners to help them think about and build for the long term, even as they focus on the next project at hand. This core theme led us in all sorts of interesting directions. We discuss the competition for talented producers on the frontlines of creative markets, how the flow of social relationships has changed, and how to create optionality for content creators throughout their careers.Josh also gives his optimistic vision for the future and reminds content creators to have fun.

Mike Clayville, CEO at Stripe, joins this week's conversation to discuss what it's like to turn companies into forces of nature, using Mike's chosen metaphor, the tornado. While Mike might be the first guest to compare company growth to a natural phenomenon, his insight is invaluable. Mike comes from a small town outside of Declo, Idaho, and grew up working on the family farm and ranch. It was there that Mike gained the hard work ethic that has catapulted him into the worlds of engineering and then finance. All along the way, he made himself known as “the guy in the cowboy hat” - be it in board meetings, or on business trips to Paris or Japan.In this episode, Mike and Joubin discuss the cultural significance of Mike's hat and the importance of not forgetting where you came from. They also discuss Mike's tenure at IBM when it was in decline, and how Mike shifted things there into an upward trajectory. Mike also explains his idea of first principles as a means to leading tornado companies, the innovation of Amazon, The Clayville Foundation and their fight against cancer, and more.In this episode, we cover: Mike's early life in Declo, Idaho, where he worked on his family farm - and the symbolism behind his cowboy hat.
