*) Five-day annexation polls open in Ukraine's Russian-held territories Russia-held regions of Ukraine have begun voting on whether to become part of Russia, in referendums that Kiev and the West slam as an unlawful land grab. The five-day votes in four regions controlled entirely or in part by Russian troops will end on September 27. The ballot covers around 15 percent of Ukraine's territory. The regions where the voting is being held are the eastern Luhansk and Donetsk regions — which are self-proclaimed republics controlled by Moscow-backed separatists — and Kherson and Zaporizhia (zah-POH-reeja) provinces in the south. *) Lapid calls for 'two-state solution' to end Israel-Palestine conflict Israel's Prime Minister Yair Lapid has called for a two-state solution to end the decades-long Palestine issue. An agreement with Palestinians, based on two states for two peoples, is the right thing for the future of our children, Lapid said at the UN General Assembly. While Lapid was short on details, lawmakers in Israel's parliament are divided on whether they want to pursue a two-state solution with Palestine. *) Death toll from Iran protests climbs as internet restricted The US has placed Iran's morality police on its sanctions blacklist following the death in custody of a 22-year-old arrested for allegedly wearing her hijab headscarf improperly. The move came as violent protests erupted across Iran following Mahsa Amini's death last week. According to an official count, at least 17 people have died in the unrest. With no sign of the protests easing, Iran has blocked access to Instagram and WhatsApp and imposed drastic restrictions on internet access. *) US aircraft carrier arrives in South Korea as warning to North A US aircraft carrier has arrived in South Korea for the first time in about four years. It is set to join other military vessels in a show of force intended to send a message to North Korea. The USS Ronald Reagan and ships from its accompanying strike group docked at a naval base in the southern port city of Busan ahead of joint drills with South Korean forces. Its arrival marks the most significant deployment yet under a new push to have more US "strategic assets" operate in the area to deter North Korea. *) Djokovic has no regrets about missing Slams due to unvaccinated status Tennis star Novak Djokovic, who missed two of this year's four Grand Slams due to not being vaccinated against the coronavirus, has said he has no regrets about his decision. The 35-year-old Serb, who has won 21 Grand Slam titles, has not played since winning Wimbledon in July as he missed out on the US Open. Djokovic is now awaiting word on whether he will be allowed in the Australian Open in January. He was deported from the country and received a three-year travel ban earlier this year due to his vaccination status.

Do najnovšej epizódy Startitup Diskusný Klub prijal pozvanie spisovateľ František Hrabal-Krondak. Očakáva po poslednej ofenzíve Ukrajincov, že smeruje Ukrajina k víťazstvu? Čím si vysvetľuje, že Američania sú lídri v pomoci Ukrajine, je za tým aj ekonomický záujem? Začína sa rozpadať Ruská federácia a prestávajú Rusi nasledovať Putina? „Pohľad Európanov aj tzv. politológov a expertov, ktorí v Rusku nikdy neboli alebo o Rusku vedia iba z literatúry, je naivný a žijú v ilúzii, ak si myslia, že keď v noci zastrelia Putina na druhý deň sa v Rusku niečo zmení. Zmenu by mohli očakávať v demokratickej krajine, kde funguje občianska spoločnosť, ale nie v krajine, kde majú moc piati darebáci, ktorí majú každý svoju vlastnú tajnú službu, prípadne armádu,“ hovorí Hrabal-Krondak. Viac sa dozvieš, ak si nenecháš ujsť najnovší rozhovor so Šimonom Žďárským. O masakroch na severnom Kaukaze pred 80 rokmi, ale aj aktuálnej situácii na Ukrajine či v Rusku si môžeš prečítať na blogu Františka Hrabala-Krondaka.

The copyright on Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne officially moved into the public domain this year. What does that actually mean?  How might nonprofit's use public domain characters like this to help tell their story? Tara Jacobson is the owner of MarketingArtfully.com with over 20 years experience in the marketing industry. She helps us break down what is possible and comes up with creative ways nonprofit causes might use the IP.    Resource links A lot of websites were shared on this awesome episode, here are the URLs mentioned. Creative Commons Trademark/Copyright search TESS RedBubble.com https://creativemarket.com/  https://morguefile.com/  https://fiverr.com Canva.com Openai.com Public Domain Story List MarketingArtfully.com https://artsyfartsylife.com/    About Tara Jacobson Tara Jacobson is the owner of MarketingArtfully.com with over 20 years experience in the marketing industry which translates into highly successful marketing systems for her “DIY” and entrepreneur clients. Tara's strong history in Psychology, Entrepreneurship, and Creativity, combined with her 100 miles per hour, “tell it like it is” personality have earned her the title “The Queen of Marketing Ahhh's” from her raving fans. Tara brings a true small and medium sized business perspective to her work. She has talked with over 1,000 small biz owners about their goals, plans and dreams, helping them to grow and make sure that their marketing increases their intended efforts!   Rough Transcript   [00:00:00] George: We have a very interesting guest who is, I'll just say it very brave because she is coming in because I reached out to her completely cold, like completely cold. I'm sitting there looking up information about creative ways of using public domain characters and works and none other than marketing, artfully.com. [00:00:50] And then I reached out to the owner and Tara Jacobson was nice enough as the owner of marketing, fully marketing artfully com. She has over 20 years experience in the marketing industry, but is, I would say coming at this as an outsider to the nonprofit and social impact industry in her work with over thousands of small and mid-size businesses and in this world. [00:01:13] Tara, can you tell us maybe a bit more about your work and what. [00:01:18] Tara: So I started internet marketing and making websites with like dream Weaver and all of that back in the day. Merge two, I was a realtor for a couple of years. That was interesting. And then I owned a marketing company for years and one of the reasons why I got so interested in. [00:01:37] More so trademark and copyright and later on, interested in public domain is because it's I believe it's $600. You get fined as a business. If you use somebody's copyrighted or trademarked work and it's $10,000, if you do it for a client. So I was like, I have always bought every picture I've ever owned. [00:02:04] I've always had. Oh shoot. What it was called, where the domain of where you got your things and yeah. You sourced the information and yeah that to me was super important years ago when I was posting things for people, making social media graphics, things like that. [00:02:23] And I got really interested in it. So we're gonna talk today. I'm gonna give you a little course in all of the D. Terms that are gonna come up. And then I love that we're gonna brainstorm some ways that nonprofits can use 'em the only nonprofit I've ever been involved in was the Colorado house rabbit society. [00:02:49] I do have a blog post on my website about how to get volunteers, cuz they were really bad at it. And so I did I did write them a blog post on how to get volunteers, but I haven't worked tons with nonprofits, but I've worked with all kinds of businesses over the years, small businesses and medium size SSEs and small business. [00:03:13] George: Yeah. And I think that's helpful context too, to say, like what's at stake. Why do I care about this on one end? There's the penalty side, which is frankly, not as much fun as the creative, which we'll get to, but I'll just say from personal experience, we had interns writing content at whole whale. [00:03:32] Seven years ago, I get this email from it's like a take down notice, but also basically we used like a picture of a squirrel with some nuts that somebody just Google. Just Google the image and the content really wasn't used at all. And we got fined. I will say I, I can't officially say, but it is in the thousands of dollars for a picture, an intern put on our website like a decade ago. [00:03:57] Like it's very real what you're talking about and very painful. So I think your note, I'll just put an exclamation point on. It's worth checking because the algorithms that people have for quickly searching and scanning websites have improved for scanning for this type of copyrighted work, all righty onto you. [00:04:17] What, and there's [00:04:18] Tara: so much available for free or a very little money. I'm gonna explain the difference, how you get super free stuff, and then how you get like really tiny money. And to me, tiny money is under $10. Maybe not under $300, I'm talking tiny money. So we're gonna start off by talking about what trademark is. [00:04:47] So trademark gets talked about a lot and trademark is just the words. So you, so Nike's swoosh. The picture of it is copyrighted because it's an image, but the word just do it is trademarked and you can't use those kind of terms. What you're talking about with the creative and the marketing, and maybe pictures for blogs and maybe pictures for things to sell or images for things to sell. [00:05:17] Is called copyright because copyright covers artistic things like pictures poems, books, things like that. And things come out of copyright. I looked it up after 70 years. So things before 1924 are in the public domain right now. And something super exciting came into the public domain this year, which was the original poo bear. [00:05:46] And [00:05:47] George: all the characters, right? So everything from the mil books are public domain. [00:05:53] Tara: Yeah. And there's illustrations of P bear and EOR and the hundred acre words and things like that, that people truly have a heartfelt connection to. So if you're talking about doing something that is going to help a nonprofit, you're not looking for something that's going to. [00:06:16] Be mercenary or something like that. You want something that people can go back to their childhood and think, oh my gosh, it's poo bear. I love poo. And there's a whole list of and you can put a link on it. I have a whole list on my website of stories that are in the public. So Rapunzel, Rapunzel it down. [00:06:47] Your hair is in the public domain. So that is something that people can use. Oh, we have to talk about public domain too. But that is a story that people can use. What they can't use is tangled. Tangled is the dignified version of. Yeah, Rapunzel, let down my hair. So what you wanna do is you wanna make sure that anything you're looking to use, there's a database. [00:07:19] It's the PT, PTO database. It's called test T E S S. If you just search test on. Google, they have a way to search for it. And you put in only look for live ones. So if you look for live and dead ones, then you're gonna get a lot. But we only care about the ones that are live right now. And so you can find out if something is in the public domain is a avail, is copyrighted or not. [00:07:46] Now public domain is way more just than things that have gone on a copyright or that aren't trademarked. There are things called creative commons where an artist or a writer or people like that will take their items and file them as creative commons. Now you want what's called creative commons. Oh zero zero. [00:08:12] And that means they hold no They don't have any license on it. Where if it's just like a plain creative comments, a lot of times they'll exclude a commercial license, even though you're a nonprofit, if you're selling something commercially, that would be violating the terms of that license. And you can find all kinds of things doing that search for pictures, for your website, for things like that. [00:08:38] Now there are places that say they. Creative commons things like morgue file has a lot of pictures on it. It's just one of the places. And, but they don't have a vetting process. They rely on the people, uploading the pictures to do it. So we're gonna talk for just a wee minute about why sometimes it's better to purchase it than not. [00:09:05] Okay. Even if you're using something that's in the public domain. So we're gonna talk about poo. Because I love him and absolutely but you could go, you could grab a book off the shelf. You could download that you could scan that image. You could fix all of the little problems with a graphic. [00:09:29] Program like Photoshop and make sure it's in the proper condition to use on a t-shirt or use on postcards or things like that. Or you can go to a place like creative market where somebody has already done that for you. Like an artist has already done all those steps. And you buy it with a commercial license. [00:09:52] Usually they're about $11, I think, to get like a set of P bear images. Alison Wonderland is in the public domain. So you can use Alison Wonderland. Now they have, somebody has trademarked Allison Wonderland on t-shirts. So you still, even if it's in the public domain, you always wanna go check the trademark database. [00:10:14] It's not, there's no like blanket, these are all safe and these are not all safe. You always wanna go and check. So does, [00:10:22] George: so the trademark database, what does that look like? Is that tests or is that a different that's test? Yeah, no [00:10:27] Tara: that's tests and all you do is you put you put in Alison Wonderland in tests and click live and click search, and then it'll show you what category of things are. [00:10:42] Ex like you have to exclude. So say it says t-shirt clothing. I can't remember what's all in that category, but you could make greeting cards. Nobody's trademarked that for greeting cards. So that's why you wanna check. So even if you think, oh my gosh, Allison wonderlands gone. It doesn't mean it is. [00:11:04] If you're not using it on the thing, they've trademarked it for. And I have such a good example that I looked up for you. So the word elf. Is trademark for lighters, photography, backdrop, and amplifiers three different categories. You can't use it for that. But as of right now, if you wanted to use it on a t-shirt you be, it's not just the, you're gonna put a picture of an L on a t-shirt and you're and for nonprofits, you may be able to avoid some of these problems, because you're functionally selling. to your constituents rather than as much trying to sell internationally. Sometimes you may wanna sell internationally, but if you're doing a fundraiser internally and you're not gonna be advertising it online or in a huge way, then you may be able to get away with it. [00:12:08] If they do send you a cease desist, then you have made commercial money on it though they can claw back that money. So it's worth looking. [00:12:16] George: Yeah this complicates it a bit more because prior to even you saying that, I just assumed if it's in the public domain, I'm looking at a picture of Winnie the poo. [00:12:26] Somebody could have trademarked that on a t-shirt. So I'm like, oh, I can spin up my t-shirts with Winnie the poo on it. [00:12:32] Tara: No, they can't trademark the picture of Winnie the poo they could tra they could, and they can't copyright it because the copyright belongs to AA. So Uhuh, the original artwork is in the public domain. [00:12:49] What they could do is, and it would take 'em a while to do it, cuz they have to show the first time the trademark, the word was used in the public and then they have to pay money to get it. It's about 12, $1,200 to get the trademark and then they have to go through a whole process where it's vet. So you and they won't go backwards. So if you were to sell a Winnie, the POH says, Winnie the poo, it's the poo bear old P bear you're done. And in two years, somebody trademarks Winnie the poo and you had used it. They don't go backwards. Does that [00:13:26] George: help at all? You know what it helps with reminding folks that just because it's on that list, you should double check the database, especially if you're going to put marketing power behind it, putting it on products and as you go to use it, but. [00:13:40] Again, though, is a massive shopping list because there are some edge cases maybe you can't put poo on a lighter, but [00:13:50] Tara: no, you can't put, you can't put an El on a lighter [00:13:53] George: I know let's get your, let's get it straight. Elves, not okay. Poo, like we'll just memorize whole thing. Poo's good. He's good to go on a lighter. [00:14:00] There's that huge the movie's coming out, right? They did a horror movie with Winnie the. Can drop this season because you can do [00:14:12] Tara: that. You can do that now. And so all of these amazing things that people, and it's not even just, so Walt Disney was brilliant. He took over so many fairy tales. [00:14:31] Yeah. And stole them for him. There is a real beauty and the beast story that is an old fable from like, When the black plague was around that he then made specific. Now you can do all kinds of things with beauty and the beast. You just can't do the bell in the yellow there iconography, right? [00:14:58] Yeah. Okay. And then spec. So that's from both the old movie and the new movie, and then you can't do, and then you can, but there's so many things you can do. Like sleeping. Beauty is you can say sleeping beauty. He doesn't own sleeping beauty. He owns Aurora because that wasn't the name of the original sleeping beauty. [00:15:22] It was. Sister. And so he picked that one. So then you wanna really try, I do know a lot about this. You wanna try to make sure that something isn't copyrighted or trademarked before you use it and just BEC and do not go to Etsy, do not go to anywhere and do a search and think, oh, look, this is all over Etsy. [00:15:46] It must be okay. That's not how the world works. [00:15:50] George: Yeah, you're really talking about the original, like name of the character as presented essentially in the trademark language, in the copyright public domain and the images I'm looking through your piece on Allison Wonderland. You may have that image of Allison, a blue dress and the the mad hat, or it is a very different look, frankly, but it's still recognizable as the charact. [00:16:16] but it doesn't necessarily have that immediate brand recognition that essentially that's a Disney version Disney, it Disney it. But right now, for instance there's two movies about pinoc one on, I think Netflix and one on Disney as a rerelease guess what, that's another story similar to, as you just mentioned beauty and the beast that you [00:16:35] Tara: can run with. [00:16:36] Yeah, there are so many things. And oh and they're really mad about this, but I think in the next year it might be next year, Nikki's coming [00:16:45] George: to town. [00:16:47] Tara: Old Mickey, like really old Mickey. Oh, G Mickey. Yeah. OG Mickey is coming out of copyright. And so that's, what's fun about it to me. Like I, I make stuff for now I make artwork. [00:17:03] I'm an artist now. And I make artwork. So I made my own version of the mad hatch actress who does not look like Johnny Depp. It doesn't look like Disney's version. She's a woman in a hat and the original Alison Wonderland had that 10 and 10, six thing in her hat. And so she's very recognizable as Alison Wonderland, as the Matt had her from Allison Wonderland, but she's a feminist version. [00:17:41] George: So now we get into maybe some of that creative elements, unless there's some more guardrails you wanna toss [00:17:45] Tara: out for folks. Nope. I think if you've gotten this far and you have all of the warnings [00:17:51] George: you really made them take their vegetables first, right? Amen. Vegetables and vitamins first. So you can riff on them. [00:18:00] You can take this original concept and riff on it. Can I just maybe up to a thou 3000. Explain to me what are the advantages of using a character that has this recognition [00:18:14] Tara: already? Okay. So the reason why there is copyright and trademark is because it would be so much easier to sell a Alison Wonderland. [00:18:30] Queen of hearts mug. If it looked just like Disney's right, people have already paid money to go to the Disney movie. They've already paid to go to Disney world. Walt Disney has already done the work to make people want to like that. And so it's unfair if you think, oh, I wanna do something with transformers because there's good brand recognition. [00:18:58] The reason why you wanna do it is because there's good brand recognition right now. The reason we now I wanna I'll give you my Madha example. The reason I wanna do a Madris is I can use all the words except for Alice in wonder. So mad Hatter, isn't trademarked tea party. We are all mad here. [00:19:23] All of those things are not trademarked, so I can make a mad Hatter shirt with we're all mad here and I can market it in a way that it will be able to get found by a portion of the population that's interested in the Alice Wonderland story. That's why I wanna make a bad hatch actress, because I know that there are people that already resonate with that character, whether it was the Disney character or whether they read Allison Wonderland in their childhood, or whether they saw Johnny DEP any which way they have a feeling towards that character. [00:20:00] And I can use that to help sell my stuff. [00:20:04] George: Gotcha. So you're shopping for. These characters in part because of this. And I wanna come back to the value that you are essentially borrowing for free. Think about the amount of attention it took to bring that character to millions of people. How much would that have cost for you to do the same? [00:20:24] Now you then, because of that attention, as I understand it, there's recognition. Oh, I see that. I grew up with that. I was read that. And then with recognition, you then can play with the affinity, which by the way, can be positive and negative. There are often villains in here as well, but you then can immediately start on page five instead of page one. [00:20:45] And then it sounds add your flavor of brand message, even advocacy. Does that sound right? [00:20:53] Tara: Yeah. Exactly. So gimme an idea of one of your nonprofits. [00:20:58] George: Oh gosh. We have a lot of animal welfare organizations I'd say interested in preserving and saving and protecting lands. [00:21:07] Tara: Okay. So animal welfare makes me think of the big Wildcat organization when I was in Colorado. [00:21:14] Which makes me think of the cowardly lion and they could use the cowardly lion, the original Frank bomb, cowardly lion, which is in I'm 95. Yeah. It's in the public domain and do something with the cowardly lion that matches their the way their nonprofit is set up and who it's serving animals, right? [00:21:43] Yes. And so if the Wildcat sanctuary already knows their people love big cats, and now they're giving them the cowardly lion with that affinity to not the movie, the book. And that character, but you can still use cowardly lion and all that comes with it. And all the heartstrings that come with it, then all of a sudden you have a target market group. [00:22:10] That's already predisposed to like it and buy it at a higher price because they don't really care. They know the profit's going to. The animal rescue group, they know that this is something that they're gonna love and cherish because it helped their thing, but they also enjoy wearing it. And in wearing it now they're promoting the animal rescue group. [00:22:32] So there's like this amazing circle of wonderfulness. [00:22:37] George: Yeah. I thought you were gonna go with Tigger, but you threw me a curve ball. I maybe have gone with You could ERs and saving Tiggers because he is a character inside of winning the poop. Now [00:22:49] Tara: you there's once you start brains but think about that, you and I went to two totally different things that are both actually big cats that could help an annual animal rescue. [00:23:02] So say you rescue turtles. You wanna find. Maybe I, and don't take, don't quote me on this, but maybe the wind in the willows is in the public domain, the original book, and there's a fun turtle in there. Or those are the kind of things you wanna try to figure out how you can mono, how you can really use their. [00:23:24] Brand recognition to make your customers who are your donors, more willing to buy something and not only buy it because that doesn't help as much. If they're not wearing it and helping spread your message. [00:23:38] George: I wanna pull the thread a bit more because immediately you talk about merchandise. And I imagine if I were to drop you into many sort of after thoughts of we'll call it a Shopify or a Spreadshirt or a very cafe press talking about we put our logo on a shirt, so our. [00:23:55] Audience can go get it. It's an afterthought. It's not the forefront. Can you explain very quickly, like when you look at the opportunity of petsy or putting imagery on a shirt, is there money there? What does that look like in your [00:24:08] Tara: world? Okay. So for a nonprofit, specifically, not in my world, because in my world, I'm an artist now, but for a nonprofit number one, I would suggest they use red bubble. [00:24:21] It is incredibly simple. You do not pay a dime to list any of the products. And as a nonprofit, you make this say, you say, and you don't have the, you don't have anybody on staff with the ability to make what you need. Number one, you can go to creative market right now and they have there's a gal on there that does dark Alice. [00:24:53] There's all kinds like pink, Alice and dark Alice and you can just buy a graphic. That's already ready to drop on a t-shirt for 12 bucks or 20 bucks. So you've bought the right to use that on a t-shirt and then you can put words on the top words on the bottom, wor you know, the name of your charity on the back. [00:25:17] And if your people do not have the ability to do that, you can go to a place like fiber, which is F I V E R r.com. And give them the graphics that you wanna use that you've paid for. Don't rely on them to get the graphics because you want to control the fact that you have purchased commercial rights to use this. [00:25:43] Ask them to make you a t-shirt and they'll make you a t-shirt for 20 bucks. [00:25:50] George: So the, then the creation of it. So how do you set up a shop? What do you point people to set up your shop for red bubble? And you can set up a custom shop with my nonprofit and I get some graphics that just frankly, go beyond here's our logo. [00:26:04] We [00:26:04] Tara: did. Oh, gosh no. You could put your logo graphics on there. You could like that could, and you could even make it cute. Okay. So if I had at least the I, okay. Let's not as cute as the WWF, cuz they have a super cute logo, but say you just have a word logo, right? Yeah. You could take and put a Christmas hat on it for Christmas and then they would have to buy it for Christmas and you could put some Mardi Bo beads hanging on it or put some shamrocks on it. [00:26:38] For I was gonna say the 4th of July, but for St. Patrick's day. And you could do all kinds of things. If you just wanna tart up your logo and then yes, other people in the world could buy it, but primarily you're gonna be driving the people who already like you. To that place so they can buy things. You can buy stickers, you can buy blankets, you can buy. [00:27:03] And all you do is you upload your thing once, and then they put it on all that stuff, if you want. [00:27:09] George: And it's on demand creation and shipping, and it's all handled for you. But I think getting back to our ideation, let me give you another another type of organization, and this is gonna be tough, but you asked for it. [00:27:20] We've got. Cancer related organizations interested in awareness for let's say lung cancer or colorectal cancer. So what types of I see her smile. You can't see, dude. I'll narrate, she's laughing and smiling. She has an idea. All right. What do you well for the call I'm way, ER, than nonprofits, right? [00:27:46] Tara: That's okay. So for the colorectal one, I would go with but why didn't you get your test with somebody's butt and not saying B U T, but B UT, but why did but implying that everything's about a butt, right? Colorectal cancer. It's your butt. I like your job. [00:28:07] That's the kind of thing that you have to get out of your own way and figure out something cute with a marketing hook that is going to to be interesting to people, to buy cards, to buy. [00:28:27] So what, so if you're [00:28:28] George: not, I would've gone wizard of Oz with this one, like a behind the curtain, or like a wizard behind the curtain or a. Maybe a 10 man or something like I have no heart. All right. Like maybe I guess in my mind went there. [00:28:41] Tara: I'm not done with this yet. [00:28:43] George: Oh, hold on. Keep cooking. [00:28:45] Tara: So for the lung cancer I would and you can do this on fiber, or you can ask if anybody's an AR is artistic in your group, get longs and have them painted with. Have them painted with some kind of PA cute pattern. So have some artist make lungs look pretty. And then that's going to be something that people already sorry about the rustling. [00:29:18] People already want to support this, but if there's a beautiful set of lungs and you can put that on something on a card, on a whatever. So if you aren't looking for products, I guess I'm just stuck in the products right now. What were you looking to use public domain stuff. So I can give you better examples [00:29:42] George: then. [00:29:42] Yeah. Moving out of the product land. I would say it's the process I'm imagining is shopping through a, Winnie the poo in all the characters, and then saying what type of graphics could we use in our website, art blog posts, social media, mini campaigns that might be around fundraisers and that type of use where it's just it's the ability to have an immediate, as I mentioned before, a combination of recognition and. [00:30:10] Then telling a nuance of your story, [00:30:16] Tara: I would still buy the cause. You're when you're buying the P bear thing from creative market. You're buying the set. So the entire set of the P air images. So you've got, say you were to do that and we'll let's talk about the Colorectal one, because if I'm going in, I'm going to the hardest one you have Tigar and I'm so happy that my, my friend P got his colorectal screen. [00:30:56] He's bouncing on his tail, right? Yep. so this is something, [00:31:01] George: no, you're right. You can take these characters and have a dialogue. And what does it mean? That happens. It's just it is so much it IBUs it with so much more nuance. Doesn't it? Because then you're not thinking. So colorectal cancer for Mego. [00:31:16] Tara: I go directly to the gal who was on the today show whose husband died. Jay died. Super cute lady. Can't remember her name right the second. And so there's a lot of bad associations, sad associations to that. And there's not this This feeling of hope that if you help donate to my cause we can. [00:31:47] Do so many more things than just mourn people. We can help with research. So maybe you have, what's the one that's always the owl, is the smart one. And so the owl says did you know that your donation helps us research cures and things to help with colorectal cancer? Like now you're saying, oh, it's not just this horrifying thing that everybody's gonna die from. It's that you, as an organization. Present a way for people to be hopeful and to want to donate because, and to want to share socially. Yeah. Do you wanna share a picture of a colon? I have seen a picture of a colon and they are not attractive. [00:32:42] Do you wanna share a picture of a colon or do you wanna share a picture of tiger jumping up and down? With a funny context to it, but here's the game that I'm seeing. You're bringing in characters that have a normal relationship, and then you're adding dialogue. It's a caption contest in some respects of saying, what would this dialogue look like if it were about our cause? [00:33:03] George: All right, I'm gonna throw you another one, unless there's another point here. No, I like. Okay. The news literacy project, and then generally anybody dealing with misinformation online. And so this particular organization works with educators and journalists to give students the skills they need to discern fact from fiction and know what to trust. [00:33:23] Tara: Oh my goodness. I would totally use. Was oh, we just watched this. Oh, you can't use it. I can give you a great example. Can't uses. So you charming was the villain and guy was the villain in in frozen. You could do this on social media. You could absolutely do this without getting in trouble. Yeah. [00:33:55] Prince [00:33:56] George: times. So just yeah. Who like a quiz who was the villain in social media da, everybody knows fake news sometimes or however you put it, that things aren't always what they seem at first glance. Yeah. And so you're talking about the fact that don't forget when you're reading the news things. [00:34:21] Tara: Aren't always what at first glance ever news or Scrooge is in the is in the public domain, that Scrooge store. That's why you have, that's why you have SCR and you have all those movies that are made of it, but you could put something about You can't use Scrooge duck, but you can use Scrooge and you could put something about the fact that Scrooge goes bankrupt. [00:34:52] Loses all his money. and then underneath you could say something like not true. He donated it all to a, to worthy causes after tiny Tim taught him the right way to do it. Make sure to fact check. Yeah, [00:35:07] George: I. All right here. I'm gonna play one into you. See how you would go with the queen of hearts is public domain. [00:35:14] Yeah. And notoriously pretty terrible leader. Did you have the little cards as like defenders or like at least the soldiers, right? No. You could have she has queen of heart soldiers. Yeah. Two soldiers, the queen of hearts talking to each other, being like, I'm not sure red. Paint's so great for flowers, but I'm not gonna look it up. [00:35:35] So painting the roses red, like all of that sort of iconography and you're like check the, so this could be part of an ongoing joke series. Could even be a, could even be a shirt. go, I'll go back to your product. But no, but it could all [00:35:48] Tara: of that's and I just set up a I've had an Etsy shop, but I just, the reason why I suggest red bubble. [00:35:54] Is because it is the easiest thing in 20 years, I have ever done online the way they've made the website and the ease of adding. It just has to be a big enough picture, which is why I suggested a fiber person, cuz they're gonna be able to there's terms like it has to be 4,500 pixels by 5,005. [00:36:17] And nonprofit people are like LA. I can't hear that. but any kind of graphic artist can do that in a heartbeat. That's just not a hard thing. And so if they have an idea that they wanna implement, they could implement it with somebody on five or very easily. Gotcha. All right, [00:36:37] George: you ready for another one? [00:36:38] Sure. Let's keep going. All right. This is one move for hunger, but also hunger organizations in general, food banks, collecting food and in general for move for hunger, they're a national nonprofit, and they have a sustainable way to reduce food waste. Mainly when people move, instead of throwing it away, they have moving companies that have been part of their network that get food that last mile to donated to local food banks. [00:37:01] So anything in the food bank, food insecure. Space. Okay. What [00:37:07] Tara: would you play there? So I go to the mad Hatter's tea party where they're eating right. Right after this, they called the moving company and they came and, or they called moved for hunger and no food. No teacakes were, was. And that's all imagery you ha can go grab and that's all imagery. It's just there. And people already know it. And they know about the, I if I was doing move for hunger, I would do a whole series of it with like cupcakes, like a really cute cupcake. Maybe even not a Alice Wonderland cupcake, but you can use, drink me. [00:37:49] You can U I. Always check. You can use drink meat. You can use eat me and then say [00:37:57] George: no, those little tags that are like so iconic to [00:37:59] Tara: it. Yeah. So eat me on a little cupcake. Cause you can buy those kind images already made. And once you have your little cupcake, then you can say not a Chrome went to waste. [00:38:13] Because the food bank showed up or the Mo food movers or move for hunger showed up. And so you're go, like the big part of whatever you're doing is gonna be the cupcake and the eat me. And then especially on social media, then the underneath of it is the message with a link to your donate page or a link to your about page so people can understand what your thing is. [00:38:39] People want to know how to help, but you have to attract their attention before they know that you're there. I adopted three kids from foster care and so food, poverty is super important to me because my kids came from that situation. But there's no way for me to know. And I work with realtors all the time, cuz of that little two year thing in real estate, I would think that you could contact realtors and have them give everybody who's moving a flyer to put in the homes of the people who are moving. [00:39:16] And you're literally touching so many more people who are moving, but you have to attract that realtor first. [00:39:24] George: Yeah. I had the thought of Winnie the POH and honey, I'm done. I'm all in poo, but Winnie the POH and honey, like he's always looking for honey, always hungry and nothing is Sader than a sad poo and an empty honey. [00:39:35] Tara: Exactly. That's wonderful. I love imagine, right? That is wonderful. There's a whole bunch in SCR. So you, so then at Christmas time, yeah, you do Scrooge and tiny Tim never had enough to eat. This is the. If tiny Tim had been alive now move for hunger. Would've been able to help. So your image is something endearing and heartfelt and that, and then your message is that this is an actual thing that helps people. [00:40:12] And what you, oh, here's another thing. Oh, this is a big one. Let's talk about demographics, right? Who has the most disposable income right now? And I see a lot of people tr okay let's start. Coherently cuz I just got really excited. So people with money are I'm 56, so I have money and people older than me. [00:40:39] So let's say 50 and older have money, disposable income to donate. So you want most of your Donations your hardcore, Hey send like I, I support best friends, which is a dog rescue. It's a giant rescue place, but they had a dog town, TV show and stuff like that. So I donate to them and they send me emails with pictures of dogs and dog stories and sometimes dog t-shirts and things like that. [00:41:11] And I have the disposable income to do it. I also donate to Kiva and which is for entrepreneurs overseas, their micro loads. So you want to take. And figure out what kind of images are going to appeal to people who are older. If you're looking for donations, not to say, to ignore younger people but that's a better target market to to. [00:41:43] To get money, easy money, recurring revenue, whatever you wanna call it, because the disposable income is there. If you are trying to get volunteers, I don't volunteer very often. I'm old and grumpy, and I don't really like to leave the house and. So you are gonna get a lot more volunteers from the younger people. [00:42:08] So you would direct if this is what your what the data from your past marketing campaigns has shown in your nonprofit. If it doesn't show that, then don't do this, but think about it. And if you can get volunteers from younger people, then figure out how you can use those kind of things, more hip and ed. [00:42:33] And mine can go back to tradition and sentimental and things like that. So those are all also things you wanna put in the mix, not just what is the character you're using, cuz you could use Tigger the same way. You said to you, I said, oh, I said to use. No. You said to use 'em for the wild cats, but you could also use him to say, Hey, hop on over and help us with the the drive to end colorectal cancer. [00:43:07] George: Yep. Fairly it's really usable. And I wanna put a finer point on what you're saying with regard to generational targeting because the characters. Are coming into public domain are 70 to a hundred years old. They are perhaps more recognizable, they're recognizable and broad, but specifically higher affinity, higher recognition for let's just be honest, a generation over 45. [00:43:30] Tara: Absolutely. I agree with that a hundred percent now I would say that my daughter, who is 17 recognized the mad hat. Because my artwork is a little cartoony but if you, yeah, your style. Yeah. Yeah. My style is a little bit more cartoony, but if you were to just put and she recognizes old poo, so then you would have to go to the really big ones. [00:43:56] You couldn't go to like owl from poo. You would have to go to poo bear, Tigger, EOR. Piglet and then you want yeah. Piglet, but then you want to to find out like how people are using those characters in common vernacular in the zeitgeist, because are you a Tigger or are you an E or is an actual thing? [00:44:29] I'm an ER, meaning that I tend to be a little. I just had this conversation with one of my friends today that I'm a little bit more grumpy and a little bit more doubting and she's a ticker, she's all everything's great. And everything's fine. And da. And so that's already in the Zeit case. [00:44:50] So you could do a fun quiz on, on your social media and say, are you a ticker or are you a E or. We're gonna have a drawing for a free entry to the, whatever you have coming up for one person from whichever team wins. Yeah, I just throwing other just looking through fictional characters, there's so much more than I realized Robinhood, Sherlock Holmes, Frankenstein's monster is a, we've only just scratched the surface of kind of what's possible. [00:45:26] George: I wonder I've been playing around with Dolly two and image creation from AI, and I realized that you can actually take one of these originals and do riffs. I think you'll get more random than you would an artist, but the ability to do variations, even on, on some of these imagery, once you have, as you acknowledge like that style of the original thing that people may recognize, you could actually move those characters around more easily than ever before. [00:45:51] I think especially for a nonprofit on social media, if you're doing no commercial sales and you're just posting on social media. Yeah. And you wanted to take, say the drippy clock from Dolly. And put it on the front of your building and say, Hey, it's time to, it's time to donate times times running out to donate for the September big cat whatever for that. [00:46:24] Tara: There's a general feeling that as long as you have changed, as long as more than 40%. Change, so there's a, I'm really big on the bad things that happened. So do you remember that Obama poster that was really graphic stark graphic? That was, are you saying the Shepherd's ferry one? [00:46:51] I believe so. Yeah. Yeah. He copied that from a picture that he didn't have the commercial rights to use oh, that's. Okay. So he is in trouble for that. He's getting sued by the photographer, or he's been sued by the photographer for that because he didn't change it at all. Short of poster, short of what anybody could have done in illustrator. [00:47:16] He made it exactly. [00:47:18] George: He just dropped it down the middle and changed one shade, changed the other shade, hit it with an outline and he is And bam you're done well, the original photographer could prove it was his. So the thought is that as long as you change about 40%, but there's lots of really recognizable. [00:47:35] Tara: I don't know if CLE. K L I M P T. He made all that gold arch where there's two people on you. Yeah. And there's gold. All of that is in the public domain. His stuff [00:47:48] George: is his is the kiss, right? That's the [00:47:50] Tara: symbolic one. He did the. Yeah. So there's tons of stuff. If you start to, to take a look and then, so you can go to, you can do a search for creative commons which is an actual place. [00:48:08] Creative commons. Yeah. Yeah, of course. And use lots of things there because there are a lot of contemporary artists. There are a lot. Just people who love to make art or who love to take pictures who are willing to have people use their artwork with a commercial license. Cause you still have to have a commercial license. [00:48:30] You are a commercial entity, even as a nonprofit yeah. So you're not using it for personal. [00:48:39] George: Yeah, you have to, especially I think the bright line here I'm taking away as we wrap up is for general social media and your website use there's clearly ways you can use it, but you definitely have to double check, triple check and even consider paying for some access to it. [00:48:54] When the commercial rights of like, all right, I'm putting it on an item to be sold and revenue will be generated albeit even for a non-profit [00:49:02] Tara: a hundred percent. But I also think that there's ways to. Collection like to pay for a commercial license of a large collection for a low amount of money that you then know unilaterally, you have purchased the commercial right to use, right? [00:49:19] So if you have all the poos and you have all the Allison wonderlands and you have a creative intern and you say let's all help you brainstorm things to do. They could be posting on social media or your website for the next year. With all different kinds of fun things. Yeah. [00:49:38] George: All right. Normally I end with rapid fire questions, but I will trim it down a little bit, maybe for you and some final wrap up questions, unless there's any other finer points you wanna put on this overall conversation? [00:49:51] Tara: No, I think this was fun. It was interesting. [00:49:54] George: Little bit different. Alright, so what is one tech challenge you're currently facing right now? [00:50:01] Tara: I just wrote in my newsletter about this, that my first reaction to anything is I can't do that. I'm an EOR, so I think, oh, I can't do that. I don't know how to do that. And one of my friends today, her coach told her she had to do TikTok and she said I don't, she was freaked out, just freaked out. [00:50:27] And she said, I don't know how to do this. And so I talked to her for a little while and at the end of it, she's oh, I absolutely can do this. So I think when my first reaction is I can't do this, number one, I'll phone, a friend. And then number two, I will look on YouTube because everything you need to know about how to do anything is on. [00:50:49] George: All right. What new website or tool have you started using in the past year? That's been a game changer for you, red bubble. [00:50:57] Tara: Red bottles. So fun. Love it. And I have no affiliation. [00:51:01] George: Yeah, no this ad brought to you by red bull com find your new [00:51:07] Tara: hobby. Exactly well, but I think it's because I've used Etsy for so long and I've worked with so many entrepreneurs and it is hard. [00:51:16] Like it's just it's hard to use. It's hard to do things and. So it's distressing to give that as a person who suggests ways to make money or to do marketing or to do things like that. It's distressing to me to recommend something that I know that they're probably gonna spend a lot of time at and may not succeed. [00:51:40] Yeah. Where I was like whoa. All my little people will be able to cause my, my readership for marketing artfully is women who tend to be older, who may not be as technically inclined. And so to have something to recommend them. I'll give you another one though. canva.com. Oh, [00:52:01] George: we're friends of Canada. [00:52:02] Yeah. Okay. [00:52:04] Tara: All right. If you're doing any kind of graphics. They like, so you could totally pull your logo into Canva and they have all kinds of elements in there. And when I said put like a little Santa Claus hat on it, they would have a Santa Claus hat. You could stick onto your to your thing, even for the top of your new, how fun would that be? [00:52:29] The top, the header of your newsletter every month. You stick something on it and then seasonal [00:52:35] George: iconography. [00:52:36] Tara: Yeah. Yeah. And then people get used to looking for that, and that's a way to get them to read your newsletter, which is the point. [00:52:45] George: All righty. What is one piece of advice your parents gave you that you either followed or did not [00:52:50] Tara: follow. [00:52:54] Don't open things with your teeth. I paid a lot for them and I opened things with my teeth all the time. [00:53:04] George: That might be the best answer to that question we've ever had. And we've had many years of this that's I'm not gonna pull all the thread there. I think that was perfect. Final hardball question here. [00:53:13] How do people find you? How do people help you? [00:53:17] Tara: So I I have a, I marketing art fleet is helpful to marketing things. I have another website called artsy Fary life.com and I have a lot of stuff on there. That's artsy Fary art, artistic stuff, and then also a bunch for Alzheimer's. Cause my mother-in-law has Alzheimer's so caregiving for Alzheimer's. [00:53:45] So if anybody has that, then there's a lot of good information. [00:53:49] George: And what might somebody reach out to you personally, to do, to work [00:53:54] Tara: on? I don't work for people anymore. don't [00:53:58] George: I did that. I'm outta the client games. All right. It's lucky, [00:54:01] Tara: but you know what, but you know what? I have an open offer to anybody to email me questions and I get lots of questions. [00:54:10] It's Tara at marketing artfully. And so while I won't do it for you, a lot of times I have either a recommendation. Or I can answer a question really quick, quickly for you. That would maybe be something that would take you a long time to figure out. And I have people email you know how some people don't mind getting texts and a text will Fritz out my day. [00:54:34] I get emails all day long from people, and I've done that for years. For 20 years. My email has been out on the internet and it's in lots of my blog posts that say, feel free to email me if you have any questions. And then if you're more artsy, I have a really cool newsletter on artsy Fary and if you're more marketing, I have a really cool newsletter on marketing artfully. [00:54:56] George: I appreciate you answering my random cold email to you, and it all makes sense. Now. I appreciate you giving generously of your time and thank you. [00:55:05] Tara: It was nice talking to you today.     Podcast picture credit: OpenAI DALLE2 edit of A. A. Milne Winnie the Pooh on a log being interviewed

On this episode of the Pursuit of Health Podcast we return to the issue of healthcare economics with our guest, Ms. Andrea Zalusky. She brings over a decade of experience in the field of healthcare administration, with a particular focus as of late on the transition from a “Fee-for-Service” (FFS) to a “Value-based care” (VBC) approach to the financing of medical care. She explains that, like doctors, she has engaged in this work because she wanted to help as many people as possible become and stay healthy. With a Masters Degree in Public Health from Columbia after studying Global and Health Policy at Johns Hopkins University, Ms. Zalusky has worked in the northeast from New York to New Jersey to establish a consistent approach to healthcare. Through her work she remains intent on improving the health and well-being of the populations that live in these areas.Ms. Zalusky is  currently leading value-based care operations for Optum Care in the New York and New Jersey region, focused on supporting physicians, hospitals, and post-acute care facilities be successful in these programs.  Prior to Optum, she worked at CareMount Health Solutions where she managed operational programs focused on reducing readmissions in partnership with major hospital systems. Prior to these operations focused roles, she also had time with both Evolent Health and other consulting firms, where she  gained experience with population health program implementation and Value-based care models all across the US - working with physician groups, hospitals and Accountable Care Organizations to help them be successful in this new model of care.  Ms. Zalusky takes our audience through some of the details behind the concepts of Population Health and Value-based payment systems in a way that is enlightening and reassuring. She explains some of the hurdles and successes along the way and shares her ultimate goal of finding a balance that allows for the achievement of 4 crucial elements to a well functioning healthcare system in the U.S.. Along the way she emphasizes the sentiment that  “Our system is indeed broken and the people deserve better.” Ms. Zalusky explains that this venture towards Value-based payments has been in the works for years. It has required persistence, legislation and time to finally get off the ground. Though she is honest that we have a long way to go, she contends that there is no turning back to a Fee-for-Service system. She reassures us that the key to a successful transition from FFS to VBC over the next several years is to work in partnership with clinicians so that they can best implement their evidence-based knowledge to the betterment of everyone.We look forward to your feedback on this and any prior episodes.

Check it out below:   [00:00:00] Pasha Esfandiary: I believe in the Amazon model, I just keep reinvesting everything that I take. I don't need to make, you know, a bunch of money right now in this second. So if I have any kind of profit, I'm just reinvesting it back into it, right? I'm in the fortunate position where I've had investments, I've done well in past careers and whatnot to afford it. So right now, you know, for me, I don't really need Evoke to be profitable. I just want to recapitalize the company, put it in and scale out the systems 'cause again, I think long term. [00:00:40] Sam Wilson: Pasha Esfandiary started his real estate career in 2011 flipping homes. He founded auctions. He has since been involved in over 250 million in transactions across multiple asset types from everything, from residential homes, boutique motels, and mobile home parks. Pasha, welcome to the show.  [00:00:55] Pasha Esfandiary: Thanks, man. Love the intro. Let's do this. [00:00:58] Sam Wilson: Awesome, rock and roll. Three questions I ask every guest who comes to the show: in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there?  [00:01:05] Pasha Esfandiary: Sure. I started in Las Vegas real estate, flipping homes around 2011. I'm in Los Angeles, California now. And, you know, I got here 'cause my wife wanted to move to LA. I didn't want to, but we did it. It went really well for me, started developing here and then, you know, in the last less than two years, apartment complexes, but now, saw the truth in mobile home parks and just, and only attacking mobile home parks.  [00:01:29] Sam Wilson: Then when was, was there a date, was there a month? When did you switch entirely in mobile home parks? [00:01:36] Pasha Esfandiary: When I made the sole decision, no matter what, from now on, it was almost about 12 months ago. 'Cause I was still dabbling in both underwriting, but I just really realized, I feel like the time and place that we're at with mobile home parks right now, it's really to find all the opportunity. We got to really spend all the effort into it's like the one thing, right? I think we've all read that. And so I just want to be singularly focused on mobile home park. So I see more opportunity right now in that space.  [00:02:01] Sam Wilson: We have a fixed supply. We have had nothing, but unbridled demand, I feel like, in that space. Cap rates have just gone, you know, down and down and down. I was speaking to somebody here a couple of weeks ago and they said, they're buying the fours on a cap rate. I mean, which is, I'm just going, what in the world? How are you finding value and buying at a four cap on a mobile home park? What are you doing differently?  [00:02:26] Pasha Esfandiary: There's a lot to unpack there, right? Because, you know, what I tell everybody or anyone that, any of my investors in many of my deals are really what it is I believe it is the only thing in commercial real estate that the supply is actually dwindling and the demand is increasing, right? When you think about the macroeconomics, I'm a long-term investor, I think long-term. So, you know, for me, it's a no brainer. It's like more and more people are going to get pinched by inflation and middle class is going to get squeezed more and more. And the next step lower is low-income housing, and it's really, really difficult to build low-income housing. You could do the LIHTC route. I would argue that's more for middle income brackets than really anything. So anyways, so I see this opportunity and I said, okay, this is really I want to position myself. Also because it mitigates my risk. And you know, maybe I don't capture all top-side appreciation, but, man, cash flows and yields are really great. So for me, the opportunity is really, I always go where there's less competition, more headaches. That tends to be the secondary and tertiary markets, smaller properties where, like I said, underneath institutional money, but also higher than most mom and pop buyers as well, too. And so we're able to now find some really good deals where we can build a lot of equity into the deals because operations of previous sellers weren't really up to par where we're at and, you know, rents are really low. So there's a lot of opportunities there. There's a lot of opportunity in the Midwest, in these smaller towns that no one's really ever heard of 50, 60,000 population, good manufacturing jobs, et cetera, et cetera said, and I could talk on and on about it. But I think, I feel like I chew your ear off of that.  [00:04:04] Sam Wilson: You did not, please. This show is for you to talk and me to do most of listening. So, I guess there's a lot of questions there. You say you want to buy parks that are bigger than maybe what mom and pop can buy. Yep. But smaller than what your institutional buyers or even, you know, a lot of our friends in the business really are probably interested in. Is that a particular dollar size? Is that a number of, I guess, you guys rate pads, is that right?  [00:04:30] Pasha Esfandiary: Yeah. Pads. [00:04:31] Sam Wilson: Pads, the number of pads that you guys have is that, I mean, how do you find that needle in a haystack or what is, what does that needle even? What is that needle, I guess, is what I'm looking at.  [00:04:41] Pasha Esfandiary: I think there's no black or white answer. I think there's three different factors. It is the number of pads for sure. It's the markets you're in and then it's also price points, right? So typically we're working underneath around the $6- $7 million range to about $2 million above range. That kind of weeds out a lot of just regular buyers who are going to come and want to buy it for themselves. Secondly, it's the markets. We are working in secondary and tertiary markets. We like our populations to be around 50,000 to about 250,000. That's where we find our sweet spot, but I will say our best performing asset is in a town of 25K population, right, but there's so much demand there. It's kind of mind blowing. And then the number of pads, we typically work. We like to stay within 50 to about a hundred, but we will buy some 35 -40. It just really depends on the numbers, right? There's a lot of factors there that go into that. Well, one thing that I always tell the team is if we're in a market, you have to make a very compelling story for why this market is going to be around. There's a lot of markets that, Hey, the numbers look great, but is this property going to be around 15 to 20 years from now? And is it going to do really well? Because that's how I look at it. I'm definitely not looking for the, just the big pop in year five. I'm looking to recycle my money over and over again and my investor's money and whatnot, whatever. So there's got to be a really compelling case that those manufacturers are going to be there for 20 years.  [00:06:10] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah. That's exactly what I was thinking of. I go, okay, so you got a town of 50,000 people. There's one major manufacturer and that's great. And it's all rosy until they close and then your mobile home park just goes empty. [00:06:24] Pasha Esfandiary:  It can't be just have one anchor, really, manufacturing plant there. It's got to be multiple. There's got to be a compelling case there, right?  [00:06:34] Sam Wilson: Absolutely. Are you finding that when you're buying these parks, are there a lot of park-owned homes, or is it, what do you find? Is there is there just a mix? Is it really random?  [00:06:44] Pasha Esfandiary: It's really random. I think the brokers that we work with and the brokers we outreach to, we go ahead and tell 'em we don't want a lot of park owned homes. We're not in the business of an apartment complex because that's what it essentially is, for us, at least, right? So we only will buy parks that maybe have about a maximum 20% POH factor. And then it is our strategy always go in there, turn those POH into RTLs, which is rent to own. So that way we don't have to deal with the repairs and maintenance. And for the most part, when we do that, tenants are absolutely happy to take 'em over. If not, there's a big line out the door that's willing to do it. [00:07:19] Sam Wilson: Right. Right. I guess, what do you see on a cap rate basis? And I know this is on a, every deal, different deal. But where are these tradings such that you can then, that you define it now as, Hey, this is a valuable opportunity.  [00:07:31] Pasha Esfandiary: Absolutely. Let me give the disclaimer that sometimes cap rates don't matter. It depends if it's a, you know, a value add play and this and that, but it is a very good measure and something to very much pay intention to. We are generally buying around the 6 to 8.5% range depending on market, depending on how big, depending on what we can build all that, but that's where we're at. Anything below that, we're not touching. 6 is still, probably on our lower scale too. We're right at the 7 to 8.5 is what we're kind of finding.  [00:07:58] Sam Wilson: Right. Clarify that statement or give more color to it when you say cap races don't matter.  [00:08:03] Pasha Esfandiary: Okay. So now let me back up and say cap rates matter, but here's the thing. It depends on your strategy. If you're doing a value add play, right, you can go buy a property that might be a little bit overpriced compared to cap rates. But if you're able to do a lot of infills, put in mobile home parks or put mobile homes onto the pads, and rent those out, you're building so much equity and so much NOI. Your exit cap rate will be much higher because you're able to increase your NOI. So you're able to build that in so then you can pad your cap rate numbers later on. So, you know, sometimes it is a little skewed. If there's like a four cap deal by kind of what we're talking about a little bit earlier, it can potentially be an eight once you do some renovations and some higher like that. That's why it doesn't matter, but it's a very good measure of what your money's buying currently. So it's a, you know, you kind of have to look at it. [00:08:53] Sam Wilson: Right. Yeah, absolutely, absolutely. Like you said, I want to resay all of it, but it's what is the business plan, what is the upside opportunity more than what is it that I'm buying in place right now. So that's really, really cool. So you guys are buying smaller parks. You're looking at the, you know, at some of these more secondary and tertiary markets. It sounds like, you mentioned there, that you're finding most of these through broker relationships. [00:09:17] Pasha Esfandiary: Yes. As of right now, we are. You know, we've hired some two wholesalers that we work with primarily. We pay a monthly fee and they're bringing us some good deals, but right now we are focused strictly a hundred percent on broker relations.  [00:09:29] Sam Wilson: Right. Right. What are some things that you would recommend if someone in any asset class that you feel like you do well when it comes to managing your broker relations? [00:09:39] Pasha Esfandiary: Be generous. That's really what it is. All right, so some of the things that we do, I'm a very relationship-oriented person. I really like to get to know them, joke around with them, address the elephant in the room. You know, one thing I always advise to others who are trying to get into this game or trying to scale, go address elephant, tell them that like, Hey, I know a bunch of people are calling you, but this is who we are and, you know, make it easier. So one thing we do is in our due diligence process, we make it super easy. They don't have to lift a finger. Secondly, we always give about 25K to 50K to every broker that closes a deal on top of their commission, right? Because like, it's pretty nominal, right? If you really think about it, like, this is why I said, like, don't be greedy, right? Be generous. If a deal's going to make you $2 million in five years, would you give up that 25, 50K to a broker who found you deal? Yeah, you would absolutely right? I will say I don't think everyone's in the fortunate position that we're able to be in, but work with your brokers. Be generous with them. Send them a really nice gift if you have to. I've sent, you know, $750 bottles of alcohol before to my brokers. It's just the little things that you can do always. I think more than anything over the money is just be real and do what you say. Don't be the guy that goes in there and just tries to retrade. We tell every broker, Hey, listen, when you start to work with us, words are cheap. We will prove to you by words, we've never just got out of a deal just to get out of deal and screw a broker. We will close deals just to keep that relationship. We're such relational people. And a company, we often find that the brokers have worked with in the past love, absolutely admire working with us again. And that's really the reasons why. We just do what we say.  [00:11:19] Sam Wilson: Man, that's cool, that's cool. Are there challenges that you guys are facing in scaling with smaller parks?  [00:11:27] Pasha Esfandiary: Yes and no. Yes, in the sense that it creates a lot more work, right?  Now for us, it's just all about what's on the back end. So we are hiring out for that. We've hired three new employees recently just to make sure we can keep up with the demand, just to make sure we can do that. And then, you know, always having people on the sites to make sure everything's running well. Yes, so we have to do a lot more on the back end, which is fine. We just have to create systems around it, but really it's just kind of like everything. You just have more work, you got to learn how to delegate, have more human capital towards those problems.  [00:12:00] Sam Wilson: Now, is there, I guess, an inflection point? Because you have to have a certain number of parks to generate a certain number of revenue where you can then bring on the right number of people. [00:12:10] Pasha Esfandiary: That's correct.  [00:12:10] Sam Wilson: So how did you tackle that early on? 'Cause if you buy one or two 50 pad parks, maybe there's not the revenue, you know, being generated in order to support the staff that you need to take down more parks. How did you get over that?  [00:12:22] Pasha Esfandiary: I believe in the Amazon model. I just keep reinvesting everything that I take. I don't need to make, you know, a bunch of money right now in this second. So if I have any kind of profit, I'm just reinvesting it back into it, right? I'm in the fortunate position where I've had investments. I've done well in past careers and whatnot to afford it. So right now, you know, for me, it's like, I don't really need Evoke to be profitable. I just want to recapitalize the company, put it in, and scale out the systems 'cause again, I think long term, right? I think in 10 years from now, I'll be making way more and then I'll have all the systems in place right now. But I also want to say that there's a caveat. If it is your first two parks, go learn this. You need to be in there and in the trenches to learn everything first, then you can start delegating. That's my opinion.  [00:13:08] Sam Wilson: Yeah, absolutely. You got to know how the machine operates, you know, before you... [00:13:11] Pasha Esfandiary: Hundred percent. [00:13:12] Sam Wilson: Yeah, start delegating that. When it comes to the hustle, 'cause I think about the hustle and I think about, you know, that word to me, maybe something different to you, but there's a certain amount of hustle. I think that it takes to get involved in commercial real estate, but is one piece of advice you would give to somebody if they're just starting out, but they want to scale, what's something they can do today in order to, like you said, go work in the trenches and learn the business before they go out on their own? [00:13:39] Pasha Esfandiary: Yeah. I could answer this two ways. I could talk about someone who's really brand new, or I could talk to someone who's like, kind of already in it. If you're really brand new, there is no amount of monetary value you could put on mentorship. Like, it is insanely lucrative to your life, like in every way, shape or form to have a mentor who is like creating the exact things that you need to learn, that you get real-life experience to go take it on and do it on your own, right? I did that when I first started flipping homes, I worked for someone as an intern for three months, unpaid, and I just learned all of the systems. And there's a lot of people who are willing to teach you, especially in real estate. Real estate's such a wonderful game 'cause so many people are willing to mentor you 'cause so many of us had mentors previously. But it's on you to really go and give up your time, which is the most, absolutely precious commodity that we ever have to do that. And then I would say for someone who's kind of in the game and wants to scale already, be relentless in your goals, be really clear on what you want, and then, you know, work yourself backwards. If you want to get to a thousand units, then you need to figure out how the hell you get a thousand units to start working yourself backwards and start changing who you need to be to become that person, become that person first and then go attack your goals.  [00:14:58] Sam Wilson: Right. No, I think it's really, really cool. I love that. Tell me, you used to play poker professionally, I think? [00:15:05] Pasha Esfandiary: I did. Yes. [00:15:06] Sam Wilson: Which I think is hilarious in its own right because it's like, you know, we always preach cash flow, we preach predictable income, like, oh yeah. Hey, this is like, you know, stability is what we're looking for in the real state game. That is not what you get in the poker game, but yet I'm imagining that you find some overlap there. Can you break some of it down?  [00:15:25] Pasha Esfandiary: I think there's a ton of overlap. There's a lot of beautiful lessons in poker because you really have to be in check of your emotions at all times. You have to understand that you have to take calculated risks. You have to follow the math. Like, no matter what you do, if you want to be a good poker, you have to follow the math. Let me give you an example. If you're in a big hand and you're about a 55% favorite, you have to put your money in, right? Like, even if it's all your money, like if you have other chips, if you don't do that, you are losing and you're making bad decisions. So it really taught me to follow the math and strictly the math. I only follow the data. I only strictly follow my proforma and I never budge from my numbers. My numbers don't work, I'm not in it. Am I super conservative my numbers? Absolutely. And I never budge ever. It's just like a hard promise to myself. Then there's two different types of poker players that I like to say. One being the guy who wants to play with the best players and test his skills and really try to like, get that. And then there's the players like myself who only cared about making money. And so, you know, I never try to get into the hardest games. I never try to play against better players. I just try to get into the softest games with the worst players so I can make money. It's called game selection. I wasn't the best poker player, but damn, I worked hard for game selection and I played the best games and I did really well because of it. And so, yeah, there's a lot of beautiful lessons also, you know, like tough line luck armor. I always tell this one thing that's like, you know, things don't really affect me because there's been nights in poker where I've lost 150% of my net worth. Yeah, like 150% of my net worth. It's not fun, but it's happened to me many times. You know, I went on tilt. I lost everything. But now things don't really affect me. Like, I'm very even-keeled, very like things can come my way. I'm like, okay, it's just information. How do we adapt? It's really helped me build this company, Evoke, and really scale up higher 'cause I will absolutely dive into any fears I have head-on. It's quite exciting. And the last piece is in poker, in tournaments, you have to be aggressive or you're just going to lose 'cause the antes get bigger and bigger. That's kind of like the story of life. Like, if you're not in it, you're just going to lose over the long run. So let me just go be in it. Let me just go try. And sometimes when you're aggressive, you make the wrong moves. That's okay. But you got to keep doing it over and over again and then you'll get to where you want to be. [00:17:47] Sam Wilson: Man, that's great. I love that. I love that. I'm really super curious 'cause you started in real estate in 2011. When did you give up being a professional poker player?  [00:17:58] Pasha Esfandiary: Right, right around there.  [00:17:59] Sam Wilson: Okay.  [00:18:00] Pasha Esfandiary: Right around there. I just knew the lifestyle wasn't for me. Like, I enjoy people a lot. Like I love people, but when I was at the poker table, I had to trick myself to hating people. It's not a good feeling to want to hate people and I don't like that. Like, you know, otherwise I'm just too nice. And then I don't make the moves that I want. I'm not aggressive enough. And then I like my morning routines, I want to have a family, all these things, and it wasn't really conducive to what I wanted to do. [00:18:24] Sam Wilson: No, for sure, for sure. I like that. But then you also went right into buying real estate at auctions, which is its own version, especially if you're like me and you're buying in a foreclosure auction, it's its own version of poker. I'm going to put my money in and I'm not quite sure what it is that I'm going to get when all the guards are turned over here. [00:18:43] Pasha Esfandiary: Some, I'm sure you know, some of the homes, you go in, you're like, oh, this is awesome. Perfect. And some of them you're just like, oh crap. What did I just get myself into?  [00:18:52] Sam Wilson: Right. Just buy. Yeah. I only had a couple, two or three of those, but they were enough to make... [00:18:57] Pasha Esfandiary: I definitely had a few of those 'cause there was a lot of like hoarders and like squatters in Las Vegas at the time. [00:19:03] Sam Wilson: Oh yeah.  [00:19:04] Pasha Esfandiary: So, I had a few ones, but again, that's a numbers game. It's a long-term game. You keep buying right. You keep getting more positive ones and some, you may break even. You know, on and some you're just hit out of the park, but it all evens out as long as you're making good long-term decisions over and over again. [00:19:19] Sam Wilson: That's exactly right. That's exactly right. I love that. Rewind over the last 11 years, what is one thing that you would do differently if you could?  [00:19:28] Pasha Esfandiary: Ooh, I'd probably get into commercial real estate faster. I'd learn about the tax advantages, tax incentives. I'd probably get out of flipping. We talked about this a little bit earlier. You know, I was, I had the mindset of I wanted to build my net worth. That's good if you're flipping homes and developing homes, but for me, something happened in the last few years where really net worth doesn't really matter to me. It's about wealth generation and that's why it's really been allocated towards passive income, learning how to use real estate as an avenue to really harbor tax incentives, and to really grow your wealth in a really big way. It's a huge snowball effect. I would do that. But, you know, I really love my life. I love where I'm at, so I wouldn't really change too much.  [00:20:08] Sam Wilson: That's fantastic. Pasha, appreciate you coming on the day and sharing with us your insights on where you're seeing opportunity and value in the smaller parks, how you guys are taking those down, bringing on team members, and kind of some of the dips and tricks you're using to scale your guys' portfolio. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you, what is the best way to do that?  [00:20:27] Pasha Esfandiary: We can go to our website, www.evokecapital.net. We are about to launch a 15 million fund to go attack these and then, and, or just LinkedIn at Pasha Esfandiary. I'll always respond.  [00:20:39] Sam Wilson: Awesome. We want to make sure we put all of that there in the show notes as well. Pasha, thank you for coming on today. Certainly appreciate it.  [00:20:45] Pasha Esfandiary: I appreciate you, man. This is fun.

*) US attorney general says 'personally approved' Trump home search US Attorney General Merrick Garland has said he "personally approved" the dramatic raid on former American President Donald Trump's Florida estate. In a highly unusual move, he also requested the warrant justifying the search be made public — though he did not reveal the reason for the search. The Washington Post has reported that federal agents were looking for documents relating to nuclear weapons. It was not clear if such documents were recovered. *) IAEA chief warns of 'grave hour' at Ukraine nuclear plant The head of the UN nuclear watchdog has told the Security Council that the agency must be allowed to inspect Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia (zah-POH-reeja) nuclear plant. Rafael Grossi told an emergency meeting via video feed that fighting between Russian and Ukrainian soldiers near the site sparked a "grave" crisis. The clashes at and around Zaporizhzhia have led to urgent international calls for an end to fighting around the plant, the largest of its kind in Europe. *) Hostage drama at Beirut bank ends after armed man turns himself in A hostage standoff in which a gunman demanded a Beirut bank let him withdraw his trapped savings so that he could pay his father's medical bills ended seven hours later. After hours of negotiations on Thursday, 42-year-old food-delivery driver Bassam al Sheikh Hussein accepted an offer from the bank to receive part of his savings. He did not actually receive any of the money, according to his lawyer. His wife told reporters after his arrest that her husband “did what he had to do". *) Sri Lankan ex-president Rajapaksa arrives in Bangkok after fleeing protests Former Sri Lankan president Gotabaya Rajapaksa has arrived in Bangkok after his visa ran out following a month-long stint in Singapore. The Thai foreign ministry said it received a request from Colombo for the 73-year-old deposed leader to visit and an assurance that he would not seek political asylum. Earlier, Rajapaksa flew into Singapore from the Maldives on July 14 after fleeing a deepening economic crisis and widespread protests in Sri Lanka.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for July 27, 2022 is: apropos • ap-ruh-POH • preposition Apropos means "with regard to." It is frequently used in the phrase "apropos of." // Sean interrupted our conversation about politics and, apropos of nothing, asked who we thought would win the basketball game. See the entry > Examples: "It was July 2020 and, apropos of the times, they were in a Zoom meeting." — Alix Wall, The New York Times, 20 May 2022 Did you know? Apropos wears its ancestry like a badge—or a beret. From the French phrase à propos, meaning “to the purpose,” the word's emphasis lands on its last syllable, which ends in a silent “s”: ap-ruh-POH. Apropos typically functions as an adjective describing what is suitable or appropriate (“an apropos comment”), or as a preposition (with or without of) meaning “with regard to,” as in “apropos (of) the decision, implementation will take some time.” The phrase “apropos of nothing” suggests that something does not relate to a specified topic.

Zo straníckeho podriadeného, či Matovičovho premiéra sa musí stať autonómny silný predseda vlády, inak túto vládnu koalíciu z krízy nevyvedie. Pohľad na aktuálnu koaličnú krízu zo strany Petra Bárdyho, šéfredaktora Aktualít a ich politického komentátora.   „Autonómny a silný sa bohužial doteraz ukázal hlavne pri zahraničných témach“, tvrdí Bárdy. „Dnes má možnosť ukázať sa ako líder aj doma“, dodáva.   „Reálne bude musieť prísť s plánom, ako presvedčiť Igora Matoviča, aby odišiel z postu ministra financií, aby netorpédoval vládu z pozície parlamentného poslanca a aby ju nechal dovládnuť do riadnych volieb“. To považuje Bárdy za najdôležitejšie z pohľadu úlohy premiéra Eduarda Hegera. „Inak sa mu vláda s pravdepodobnosťou hraničiacou s istotou vláda rozpadne“, dodáva.   Bárdy však vidí ako nereálne, že by sa Hegerovi podarilo Matoviča presvedčiť, aby z vlády odišiel. „Konflikt prerástol do takých rozmerov, že je nereálne, aby boli v jednom čase na pozíciách ministrov Sulík s Matovičom“. Bárdy tým naznačuje aj možný smer, ako sa budú uberať rokovania.   „Myslím si, že Richard Sulík aj pri svojom egu by bol ochotný rokovať o tom, že by nebol ministrom hospodárstva. SaS má odborníkov, ktorí by ho vedeli plnohodnotne zastúpiť. Predpokladom toho ale bude iný nominant Oľano, ktorí by bol náhradou Igora Matoviča“, uvažuje Bárdy.   V druhej časti podcastu sa pozrieme na rozhodnutie Bruseli regulovať sociálne siete.   Facebook, Twitter, Google či Amazon po novom už nebudú môcť obchádzať internetové pravidlá a zneužívať svoje postavenie na európskom digitálnom trhu.  Európsky parlament tento týždeň schválil legislatívu o regulácii digitálneho prostredia. Tá sa dotkne predovšetkým technologických gigantov. Jedným z cieľov je ochrana používateľa pred škodlivým obsahom. (Hlavným cieľom je ochrana používateľa pred škodlivým obsahom.)   Ako a aký obsah bude Európska únia regulovať na sociálnych sieťach a ako budú regulované dezinformácie? Budú vôbec regulované? To sa Denisa Žilová pýtala Tomáša Kriššáka, odborníka na informačnú bezpečnosť a Ľuboša Kukliša, riaditeľa Rady pre vysielanie a retransmisiu.   Podcast pripravili Denisa Žilová a Jaroslav Barborák

„Hašteria sa, kto príde do čela nášho protestu, namiesto toho, aby jednoducho rozhodli o pomoci, je to absurdné“. Pohľad Viktora Križa zo Slovenskej komory učiteľov v kontexte blížiaceho sa celoslovenského protestu, ktorý organizujú školskí odborári.   Učitelia protestujú, lebo posledné zvyšovanie platov je minulosťou, ktorá má už dva roky. „Naposledy sa platy zvyšovali k prvému januáru 2020, ešte za predchádzajúcej vlády“, vysvetľuje Križo. „Aktuálne k tomu musíme pripočítať jedenásť percentnú infláciu“, dodáva.   Problémom aj samotný rezortný minister   Pre Slovenskú komoru učiteľov však nie sú problémom len peniaze. „Minister školstva si s nami za dva roky nebol schopný sadnúť a diskutovať, napriek tomu, že sa podieľame na príprave legislatívy“, tvrdí Križo.   Viktor Križo tvrdí, že ministerstvo dnes síce deklaruje, ako je na strane učiteľov, „no za dva roky sme nevideli jediný reálny krok zo strany rezortu“.   „Minister nie je schopný za rok zabezpečiť napríklad tablety, ktoré dostal z Európskej únie. Stačil by lusk prstom“, ilustruje Križo.   „Po dvoch rokoch si dovolím povedať, že nie je kompetentný na riadenie svojho rezortu“, tvrdí Križo z predsedníctva Slovenskej komory učiteľov.   Len do konca tohto roka má v systéme chýbať do dve tisíc učiteľov. „Otázka je, kto bude tie deti učiť“, pýta sa Križo. „Učitelia odchádzajú, sú frustrovaní“, vysvetľuje. Dôvodom má byť zlé nastavenie systému a slabé finančné ohodnotenie.   Boj na mnohých frontoch – demokratizácia na školách   „Bojujeme preto, aby sme do škôl pritiahli nielen kvalitných učiteľov, ale aj ich riaditeľov“. Práve od riaditeľov podľa Viktora Križa závisí vo veľkom, aká atmosféra panuje na školách.   „Systém odmien je nastavený tak, že kto je lojálny k riaditeľovi, má ich vyššie, nikto nevie, na základe akého kľúča“, ilustruje situáciu na školách.   Podcast pripravil Jaroslav Barborák.

Proof of History is the latest feature to solve consensus challenges, but how does it compare to its predecessors?

Surely the greatest irony in the blockchain space is that there has never been any agreement on “the best” consensus model. Bitcoin and Ethereum are widely lauded for pioneering the concepts of blockchain and smart contract platforms respectively, but both also come under heavy criticism for their lack of scalability. The scalability challenge is largely due to their use of the proof-of-work (PoW) consensus method. Therefore, teams of developers have been focusing for years on devising a different method for achieving consensus among network participants. One that removes the bottlenecks caused by PoW, but still achieves the security of decentralization, while maintaining the right balance of incentivizing honest actors and deterring bad ones. So far, there have been dozens of attempts at solving this quandary. However, only a few have emerged as main contenders, namely proof-of-stake (PoS) and delegated proof-of-stake (dPoS.) However, a new horse just entered the race. It's not a new consensus protocol – rather, a means of speeding up consensus. A blockchain project called Solana is developing a secure, scalable blockchain that can handle up to 50,000 transactions per second on its testnet. How does it achieve this? It uses a feature called Proof of History to determine the passage of time, which, in turn, considerably reduces the weight of consensus. Proof of History, Explained Proof of History (PoH) aims to lighten the load of the network nodes in processing blocks by providing a means of encoding time itself into the blockchain. In a regular blockchain, reaching consensus over the time a particular block was mined is as much a requirement as reaching consensus over the existence of the transactions in that block. Timestamping is critical because it tells the network (and any observer) that transactions took place in a particular sequence. In a PoW scenario, the successful block miner is the first to find the correct nonce, which requires a certain amount of computing power to perform. However, PoH uses a newer cryptographic concept called Verifiable Delay Functions (VDFs.) A VDF can only be solved by a single CPU core applying a particular set of sequential steps. No parallel processing is allowed, so it's easy to define exactly how long it takes to apply those steps. Therefore, the passage of time is evident. PoH solves the time challenge, and thus reduces the processing weight of the blockchain, making it lighter and faster. Solana combines PoH with a security protocol called Tower Byzantine Fault Tolerance (Tower BFT), which allows participants to stake tokens so they can vote on the validity of a PoH hash. This protocol penalizes bad actors if they vote in favor of a fork that doesn't match the PoH records. Furthermore, Solana deploys proof-of-stake (PoS) as a means of determining who can participate as a block validator. The Evolution of Blockchains So how does Proof of History stack up to its predecessors? Proof-of-Work There are some similarities between Proof of Work and the Proof of History feature. Mainly, that both methods rely on a defined expenditure of computing power to produce blocks, or hashes as they are known in PoH. Like Bitcoin and most other PoW blockchains, Solana also uses the SHA-256 algorithm. This may raise the question of whether an ASIC could significantly speed up solving the VDF function in PoH. Solana believes that this isn't a challenge and that the processing power of most ASICs would be within an acceptable range of what's available to the wider network. Because PoH removes the timestamping burden from the network, it results in a far lighter, faster blockchain than anyone has been able to achieve so far using PoW. The incentive mechanisms are protected by combining with Tower BFT. Regardless, PoH can work together with Proof of Work as well, thereby improving its scalability. Proof-of-Stake Proof of Stake (PoS) has been the long-promised solution to Ethereum's scalability. In PoS, net...

Slávistická pouť Konferenční ligou skončila ve čtvrtfinále. Sešívaní nakonec nenavázali na jaro roku 1996, kdy se Slavia vedená Františkem Ciprem dostala až do semifinále Poháru UEFA. Který tým Slavie byl podle Nosičů vody lepší?Chcete si z podcastu vybrat jen některá témata?2:40 Víkendové výhry ligových kandidátů na titul14:40 Nervozita na druhém konci tabulky24:40 Srovnání dvou epoch Slavie: 1996 vs. 202237:00 Kolik vydělaly české kluby v Evropě?40:10 Nejnudnější zápas roku: Tottenham vs. Brighton46:30 Frankfurt po vítězství nad Barcelonou čeká West Ham52:40 Přestupové manévry - kam zamíří Lewandowski?58:50 Sázkařské okénko: tipy na Premier LeaguePo vstupní přestřelce 3:3 v Rotterdamu Slavia v odvetě podlehla nizozemskému Feyenoordu 1:3 a dveře k semifinále se tak před ní přibouchly. Svěřencům trenéra Jindřicha Trpišovského se tak nepodařilo dorovnat dosud největší pohárový úspěch sešívaných v novodobé historii. Tím zůstává účast v semifinále Poháru UEFA před 26 lety.Nosiči vody rozebrali hlavní příčiny slávistického konce v letošní soutěži a také si vyzkoušeli zdánlivě nemožné: to když se pokusili v různých aspektech porovnat obě zmíněná supermužstva Slavie. Tedy to s Poborským či Šmicrem, jež se zaskvělo v roce 1996, s mužstvem aktuálním. Hlavním cílem srovnání pak byl pokus určit, který z těch týmů zaznamenal sportovně hodnotnější výsledek.Když chybí „Beckenbauer“Proč Slavia podlehla Feyenoordu? Sešívaným ve čtvrtek proti nizozemskému soupeři nefungoval podle představ zejména střed hřiště. Domácím se ze hry středopolařů vytratila obvyklá jistota.„Podle mě to je tím, že Slavii citelně chyběl Tomáš Holeš. Troufnu si říct, že jim scházel natolik intenzivně a citelně, jako kdysi musel Franz Beckenbauer scházet sestavě Bayernu Mnichov, když se bez něj někdy musela nerada obejít. Holešův současný význam pro Slavii je podle mě opravdu tak zásadní, že ani srovnání s nenahraditelností a výjimečností ‚Kaisera Franze‘ v jeho mnichovské hráčské éře nekulhá,“ pustil se Luděk Mádl do nečekaného příměru.„Holeš je při své aktuální formě a sebevědomí jak pro Slavii, tak pro reprezentaci naprosto klíčovým hráčem. Svým působením dokáže motivovat, řídit i povzbuzovat své spoluhráče. Když zrovna není na hřišti, mívá Slavia výrazné potíže s organizací hry a hráčům klesá sebevědomí,“ tvrdí fotbalový expert Seznam Zpráv Mádl.Čím je Tomáš Holeš podobný Tomáši Součkovi? Na jaké peníze si přišly konkrétní české kluby v evropských pohárech za sezonu 2021/22? Dopadne finančně lépe Sparta, nebo Slavia? A jakou roli hrají bonusy od UEFA ve srování s dalšími proudy finančních příjmů českých klubů? I to vám prozradí Nosiči vody.1996 vs. 2022Pro srovnání slávistické verze z roku 1996 a té letošní je podle Nosičů vody zásadní popsat odlišnosti v dobových kontextech. V sezoně 1995/96 totiž měly evropské poháry oproti dnešku naprosto jinou strukturu a odlišné složení. Podle moderátora Jaromíra Bosáka se obě mužstva Slavie vlastně dost dobře srovnat nedají: „Vzhledem k odlišné době a vývoji fotbalu je to prakticky nemožné. Například tehdejší Liga mistrů byla soutěží, ve které nastupovali výhradně mistři svých zemí.“„Tehdy existovaly dvě soutěže - Liga mistrů a Pohár UEFA. V Lize mistrů už se hrálo ve skupinách, ale každou zemi tehdy stále zastupoval pouze jeden celek. V Poháru UEFA proto startovaly obvykle druhé, třetí či čtvrté nejsilnější týmy z těch nejprestižnějších evropských lig. Pro zajímavost, Poháru UEFA se v ročníku 1995/96 zúčastnili giganti jako AC Milán, Inter Milán, AS Řím, Manchester United, Bayern Mnichov, Benfica Lisabon nebo Barcelona,“ vzpomíná Luděk Mádl.„V dnešní lize mistrů hájí barvy nejsilnějších lig kvarteto zástupců. Skupinová fáze Ligy mistrů čítá 32 celků. V Evropské lize pak hraje dalších 32 mužstev. To znamená, že základní skupinu soutěže třetí, tedy Konferenční ligy, kope orientačně sedmá, osmá a devátá desítka jakéhosi pomyslného evropského žebříčku. Nechci tím dnešní EKL jakkoliv hanit nebo její význam shazovat. Ale v tomto faktoru při pokusu srovnat sportovní hodnotu Poháru UEFA z ciprovské éry s letošní soutěží nemůže vzniknout ani stín pochybnosti. Ciprův tým tehdy hrál soutěž obsazenou bez diskuse mnohem silnějšími týmy nežli nynější Slavia v aktuální EKL,“ je si jist Mádl.„Dnes je Liga mistrů jakousi ligou vyvolených, nikoli výhradně mistrů. Slavia v Ciprově éře těžila především z vlastních zdrojů. Kádr se skládal z domácích hráčů, kteří se chystali opustit českou ligu a jít do světa. Pro srovnání, minulý týden v sestavě Slavie proti Feyenoordu nastoupili jen dva čeští hráči,“ doplňuje Bosák.V zahraniční části podcastu Nosiči vody hodnotí další střetnutí anglických gigantů mezi Liverpoolem a Manchesterem City. Tentokrát jej ovlivnila i jedna velká brankářská minela. Chcete se dozvědět, jaký zápas si vysloužil nálepku nejnudnější mač sezony? Dozvíte se i o formě bundesligového Frankfurtu, který v semifinále Evropské ligy vyzve v Česku oblíbený West Ham. Opustí podle Nosičů vody Robert Lewandowski v létě Bayern Mnichov?

Easter Break Replay - Episode 1 of 2 Ep 184 - Delivering Saturday dessert delight boxes with Holy Sugar founder Audrey Allard Audrey Allard grew up in Northern NSW but knew she had to leave her comfort zone and head to the big smoke to sharpen up her culinary skills and make a name for herself. In 2017 as a third-year apprentice studying her certificate 5 in Patisserie, she made a split decision to pack her car and head to Melbourne. This ranks this as one of the best decisions of her life, with the fact she ended up working in some pretty amazing restaurants such as @ptleoestate to @lunecroissant Like many others in Melbourne 2020, she had her shifts cut short and was in desperate need to keep her mind busy, so she started baking sweets for her housemates. She truly lives and breathes desserts, so she thought why not just start her own business? @holysugar__ was created within a week, with boxes heading out to friends from her Instagram page. It didn't take long for the word to spread and a cult following to form. Holy Sugar is a one-woman show. From recipe testing to prep, socials, packing and deliveries. She was fortunate enough to snag a space from our great friends at Worksmith, a collaborative hospitality working space with a commercial kitchen located at the back- this is where the magic happens on a weekly basis! In this podcast, we discuss how she built the brand after making the split-second decision to do so, how the business has evolved coming in and out of the Melbourne lockdowns since early 2020, and what she wants to do with the business next, including if she plans to open a brick and mortar store.
