Silicon Valley “laptop classes” need to get off their “moral high horse” with their “work-from-home bulls***,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk told CNBC's David Faber in a Tuesday interview. Musk was discussing return-to-office imperatives that have caused significant concern among tech workers in Silicon Valley and across the U.S., many of whom were promised generous remote work mandates by top executives. “I think that the whole notion of work from home is a bit like the fake Marie Antoinette quote, 'Let them eat cake,”″ Musk said. “It's not just a productivity thing,” Musk said. “I think it's morally wrong.” That's NOT Christian is a podcast by four urban believers who discuss current events and push the envelope on traditional religious subjects with a touch of humor. ►Become a Member: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatsNOTChristian/membership ►Shop: http://thatsnotchristian.com ► Telegram: https://t.me/thatsnotchristian ► Music by Ryan Little SPOTIFY: https://spoti.fi/2MmjRru ►Follow the Squad ANT: https://www.instagram.com/aptop25/ JAY: https://www.instagram.com/jayacosta/ JIMMY: https://www.instagram.com/jaeisla/ SWITCH: https://www.instagram.com/switch_in_hd ►Podcast Equipment Streamyard: https://streamyard.com/pal/5046807178772480 Canon M50: https://amzn.to/2NP7s3G Logitech BRIO- https://amzn.to/379YCnN Samson Q2U: https://amzn.to/3tcv2aW Ring Light: https://amzn.to/3tbxApJ Light Stand: https://amzn.to/2NKbg69 Smart Lights: https://amzn.to/3aeU5kW Gaming Chair: https://amzn.to/36nnFn0 DISCLAIMER: This video and description may contain affiliate links which allow us to receive a small commission when you click on a product links.

“No one listens to the radio anymore. Radio is dead.”When someone says that to me, I beat them unconscious with a Portable People Meter.“Wait a minute. When you say, ‘beat them unconscious with a Portable People Meter,' what do you mean by that?”Okay let's role play this. Say to me, “No one listens to the radio anymore.”“No one listens to the radio anymore.”How well do you understand the science of statistical measurement?“I understand the basics, I think.”You've heard of the Gallup Poll, right?“Sure.”The Gallup Poll measures the opinions of the 260 million adults in America with 95% confidence and only a 3 percent margin of error. Do you know the sample size required to do that?“Tell me.”One thousand and sixty-seven people.“That doesn't sound right.”Statistical scientists know their measurements are reliable because of the Law of Large Numbers. Are you familiar with the Law of Large Numbers?“No.”The Law of Large Numbers guarantees stable long-term results for the averages of random events. While a casino might lose money on a single spin of the roulette wheel, its earnings will return to a predictable percentage over a large number of spins. Any winning streak by a player will eventually be overcome by the parameters of the game. The margin of error depends inversely on the square root of the sample size. In other words, the smaller the universe, the larger the percentage that has to be queried to get an accurate result. But the larger the universe, the smaller the percentage.“What are you saying, exactly?”In a universe of just 100 people, you have to ask nearly all of them to get an accurate measurement. But in a universe of 1 million people, you need only 600 people in your survey. To measure the entire United States of America, you need just 1,067 randomly chosen adults.“So how many people participate in a radio survey in the average city?”Name a city.“San Francisco. It's a tech city. Silicon Valley. There's no way radio is reaching San Francisco.”The Nielsen sample size in San Francisco is three times the number of people required to measure the whole United States. And Nielsen doesn't measure just once per quarter. Nielsen measures San Francisco 365 days a year.“How?”What do you mean?“How are they measuring it? What's the mechanism?”It's a digital device worn by thousands of randomly selected people. Nielsen's Portable People Meter knows precisely which station you're listening to, when you started listening, when you changed channels, and when you quit listening. It doesn't rely on human recall, and you can't lie to it. Nielsen's Portable People Meter is as reliable as anything offered by Facebook or Google. Nielsen isn't guessing when they tell you how many people are listening to the radio. They're measuring it 24/7/365.“You still haven't told me how many people listen to the radio in San Francisco.”41.6% of the people in San Francisco – 2,565,817 persons – spend enough time listening to the radio that we can efficiently reach each of them an average of 3 times a week, 52 weeks in a row. This means 41.6% of San Francisco will hear your new, surprising, and different radio ad 156 times this year.“Yeah. But is it working? Radio, I mean.”Radio is delivering better results for less money than it has ever delivered. I can say that because my 70 partners and I have been using radio to grow owner-operated businesses for more than 40 years.“Okay, but isn't attribution a problem? Sure, maybe your clients are growing, but how do you know that radio is what's driving that growth?”We don't use a media mix when our client can't afford to swing that hammer.“What do you mean?”We believe in doing one thing wholeheartedly instead of two things halfheartedly. A focused budget...

Real Estate News: Real Estate Investing Podcast
A Senate hearing on recent bank failures turned into a prickly confrontation between bank executives and lawmakers. Former leadership for Silicon Valley, Signature, and First Republic Banks were hammered by lawmakers about why their banks collapsed. And there wasn't a lot of agreement on the cause. Bank executives blamed the government and the media, while lawmakers blamed mismanagement and greed. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. Please remember to subscribe to this podcast and leave us a review. Silicon Valley Bank made the biggest splash as the first bank to fall with about $210 billion in assets. Signature bank had about $110 billion when it was seized by regulators. They were the third and fourth largest banks in the U.S. so their failures raised huge concerns about the impact on the entire financial system. First Republic went south and teetered for a few months after it lost billions in deposits, and was largely taken over by JPMorgan. SVB CEO Blamed a Series of “Unprecedented Events” In a joint session before the Senate Banking Committee, former Silicon Valley Bank CEO Greg Becker pointed a finger at the federal government, saying the bank's failure was the result of a series of “unprecedented events.” He testified that: “With near zero-percent interest rates and the largest government sponsored economic stimulus in history, more than $5 trillion in new deposits flooded into commercial banks. By the end of 2020, SBV had grown 63 percent over the prior year, and in 2021, SVB's assets grew another 83 percent to $212 billion.” (1) He also pointed out that during the pandemic, when inflation started to become an issue, the Federal Reserve insisted that inflation was “transitory” and that interest rates would remain low. Massive Bank Run at SVB The bank's collapse largely happened after a decision to invest more than half of the bank's loan portfolio into fixed-income Treasury securities, when interest rates were low. They are considered “low risk” but they are also impacted by interest rate hikes. When interest rates blew up to fight inflation, the value of SVB's portfolio shrank and that forced the bank to sell at a $2 billion loss. When news spread about the bank's situation, depositors became concerned about accessing their funds and the bank experienced a massive bank run. Media Misconceptions Becker also blamed the media for comparing the March 8th failure of Silvergate Bank to Silicon Valley Bank. He told lawmakers that the two banks had completely different business models, and said: “Rumors and misconceptions quickly spread online, culminating on March 9th with the first-ever social media bank run leading to more than $42 billion in deposits being withdrawn from SVB in 10 hours, or $1 million every second.” Two More Dominoes to Fall Former Signature Bank Chairman Scott Shay was miffed that his bank was seized by New York State regulators on March 12th. He insisted that the bank would have survived that bank run. He argued: “We were at all times solvent and well-capitalized, and even with the sale of our available-for-sale securities, we still would have remained well capitalized.” Former First Republic CEO Mike Roffler also blamed social media and news stories for inciting panic among depositors along with technology that allows for fast-paced digital withdrawals. Roffler told lawmakers: “The contagion spread very quickly and panic is very hard to control.” (2) Lawmakers Blame Mismanagement, Greed But lawmakers also took the conversation in a different direction, criticizing bank leaders for millions of dollars in bonuses and personal stock sales ahead of the failures. Senator Sherrod Brown ripped into Becker saying: “Workers face consequences, executives ride off into the sunset. Only in corporate boardrooms can you run your business into the ground, take the whole economy along with you and come out ahead. We can't let that happen again.” Some lawmakers said that bank executives could have reduced the risk by hedging their portfolios, but that they, instead, placed profits ahead of safety. As explained in a Washington Post article, Silicon Valley Bank had financed short-term liabilities with long-term debt. It seemed like a no-brainer when interest rates were low, and to be fair, there was a lot of talk about interest rates remaining low for a very long time. But when the Fed started hiking rates, the value of those Treasurys went down. Lawmakers say the bank could have swapped those longer-term notes for one with shorter-terms that match the duration of the bank's liabilities. But they say the banks didn't do that because it would have been more expensive. (3) Sharp Words from Some Senators The session became downright nasty at times. Senator John Kenney of Louisiana had sharp words for what he called SVB's “stupidity.” He told Becker: “You made a really stupid bet that went bad, didn't ya? And the taxpayers of America had to pick up the tab for your stupidity, didn't they?” (4) He continued saying: “No, this wasn't unprecedented. This was bone-deep, down-to-the-marrow stupid. You put all your eggs in one basket and unless you lived on the International Space Station you could see that interest rates were rising and that you weren't hedged.” Let's hope we've seen the last of this kind of banking madness.

The Five Dysfunctions Of A TeamThe Five Dysfunctions Of A Team Full Book Introduction You might find it strange that, sometimes, companies armed with better and newer technology, stronger directors, and more capital than their competitors still fall behind in terms of revenue and customer growth. How can this be? The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable uses the story of a CEO rescuing a company to show us the dysfunctions that can hinder teamwork and performance and how overcoming them can set a company off to a brand-new start. Author : Patrick LencioniPatrick Lencioni is the president of the management consultancy The Table Group as well as a bestselling business writer and speaker devoted to the study of corporate and team management. He has consulted thousands of senior executives from Fortune 500 companies, high tech start-ups, universities and non-profit organizations. He has been named one of America's top five business speakers by The Wall Street Journal, as well as one of the “ten new gurus you should know” by Fortune Magazine. Overview | Chapter 1Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we will unlock the book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable. In today's competitive market, we often see companies equipped with cutting-edge technology, more capital and better talent still falling behind their competitors in terms of revenue and customer growth. Likewise, the imaginary, Silicon Valley-based software company presented in this book, DecisionTech Inc., boasts an accomplished, prestigious executive team and an impeccable business plan. Yet two years after its founding, the company is on the verge of bankruptcy. What has led to its failure? Can the company be revived and how? These and more questions are answered in this management tale. True to the literary tradition of the fable, the author uses the tribulations of fledgling CEO Kathryn Petersen, tasked with saving the company before it's too late, to explain the five dysfunctions that can make even the best teams ineffective, and how to overcome them. As such, the book can be of help to any company who find themselves reflected in the narrative. It shows that the process of building an outstanding team that can really make good use of the company resources, while not easy, is not too complicated either. All it takes is to direct everyone's energies towards the common goal, a result that can prove useful across any industry and market condition. Author Patrick Lencioni is a founder of the consultancy The Table Group. Since 1997, The Table Group has dedicated themselves to helping company leaders improve organizational performance and interdepartmental communication. A prolific speaker, Lencioni himself shares his thoughts on organizational management and leadership with over ten thousand people every year, and his deep insights into the difficulties of teamwork have led him to elaborate original solutions to common team dysfunctions. And now, let's begin to learn about the following five dysfunctions of teams and their solutions: Part One: The first dysfunction: without trust, there can be no teamwork; Part Two: The second dysfunction: fear of conflict lowers efficiency in problem solving; Part Three: The third dysfunction: lack of commitment, where team decisions are impossible to define; Part Four: The fourth dysfunction: avoidance of accountability, and a lack of pressure among coworkers; Part Five: The fifth dysfunction: inattention to results, when team performance is not prioritized.

Recode Decode with Kara Swisher
Today – we've got a treat for you. We're going to run a special episode from our friends over at Recode. Peter Kafka and his team just wrapped up a special 3-part series on AI. AI has captured the imagination of Silicon Valley. In fact, in the last few months, I've talked to both Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella about AI after they announced new AI-powered search products. And in the middle of the frenzy, it's hard to tell what's really going on. What exactly is AI, how does tech plan to re-design the world with it, and why are a bunch of smart people very, very worried? In this episode, they're diving into the gold rush around AI. Figuring out what's just hype, meeting the VCs that are hungry to invest, and finding out if there will be room for startups, or if the giants will just own it all. If you're a Decoder listener, this is right up your alley. Thanks to Peter Kafka and Recode Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Today, I sit down for a conversation with *my coach* Robert Ellis, about his new book, Coaching From Essence. Robert has been described as “one of Silicon Valley's best-kept secrets” and has been coaching leaders at startups, mid-stage companies, Fortune 500 giants, and nonprofits for over 30 years. Robert has taught leadership and coached entrepreneurs at Singularity University and developed Level UP, the leadership curriculum for the Global Startup Program, and taught leadership courses at Stanford University. We met through radical serendipity and I'm grateful for the generosity and grace Robert has coached me with. All of his teaching materials are now publicly available on his free circle community and on youtube. Robert's book is like sitting in a fireside chat with Robert, absorbing his profoundly wise and profoundly simple approaches to coaching. Sometimes, a new idea can feel so true that it lands like common sense - all the pieces fitting together so seamlessly and effortlessly. Roberts' metaphors, stories and models hit like that - like powerful truths you knew all along. Robert's visual models help ground a coaching conversation, make it easy to follow along, and make the conversation incredibly sticky. And literally every time I've drawn one of these diagrams for a client, it lands with them and becomes a new metaphor for thinking about their challenge and their path forward. This book isn't just for coaches who want a more effortless and human approach to doing this work, it's for anyone who wants to be deeply helpful to their clients, their teams, their organization, and to lead conversations in a more impactful way. Coaching from Essence is based on the radical idea that everyone has an essence, and that, when we work from it, we can effortlessly create value and impact. Coaching from essence works both ways - the coach coaches from *their* essence, their natural approach…and the coachee is coached to work from their *own* essence - their own natural approach. We're not telling people how to be. We are here to help them remove the obstacles that get in the way of them finding their own way. According to Bill Gates, everyone needs a coach. I would flip this suggestion on its head and say that at some point in everyone's lives, accessing a Coaching from Essence mindset can be a generous, powerful and transformative way to help someone in our lives. Some of us choose to make coaching our life's work, but Coaching from Essence is a powerful, generous and transformative approach to helping people that everyone can (and should?) access at the right moment for the right person. Robert Ellis is the embodiment of what he teaches - he is a generous, powerful and transformative coach who I've had the pleasure of working under for several years. I'm so glad this book is finally out in the world so that everyone can have the experience of working with him.

To his surprise, Glenn has found that many artificial intelligence experts would rather play politics than warn the world about what's coming. AI is this generation's atom bomb, but experts like Google alumnus Geoffrey Hinton have refused to speak with Glenn. But in this episode, Glenn speaks with one of the few who will. As the co-founder and executive director of the Center for Humane Technology, Tristan Harris has devoted himself to warning us about the dangers of AI. The Atlantic described him as “the closest thing Silicon Valley has to a conscience,” and his Netflix Original docuseries, “The Social Dilemma,” documents the devastating power of social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. But AI, he predicts, will be even more disruptive. Tristan tells Glenn about what the future of AI can easily look like if it isn't reined in now: more Chinese infiltration, a rise in teenage suicide, and a creepy Big Tech race toward AI intimacy with humans. But is government regulation the best solution? As Tristan points out, this question needs to be answered right now by ALL of us. More and more often, artificial intelligences are developing minds of their own — with frighteningly god-like intelligence and power. Tristan describes this as “summoning the demon,” asking Glenn why we should let five people in Silicon Valley decide for the rest of humanity. If we're not careful, Tristan tells Glenn, this could be the final test of our species. SPONSORS: Home title fraud is growing 2.5x faster than credit card fraud.

Chasing Heroine: On This Day, Recovery Podcast
TRIGGER WARNING** Today Jeannine interviews Mary Beth O'Connor, retired federal judge, author and recovering addict. Mary Beth's book "From Junkie to Judge: One Woman's Triumph over Trauma and Addiction" chronicles the extreme abuse of her childhood, early drug use and ultimately is a guide book for anyone looking to find a recovery that is not centered around a Higher Power concept. About Mary Beth: For Mary Beth, childhood abuse and other traumas led to substance use disorder (addiction). Beginning with alcohol at age 12, she spent several years abusing various drugs. She found methamphetamine at 16 and started shooting up at 17. Mary Beth struggled with meth until she was 32 years old. By incorporating ideas from multiple sources to build a secular (not 12-step or faith based) recovery plan that works for her, Mary Beth has been sober since 1994. She used similar techniques to address the trauma and related anxiety as well. Mary Beth is a board member for LifeRing Secular Recovery and She Recovers Foundation. She speaks on behalf of these organizations, about multiple paths to recovery, and about all topics related to substance use disorder and recovery. She also speaks about sexual abuse and rape, child abuse, domestic violence, ptsd, anxiety, and recovering from these as well. Professionally, 6 years into recovery, Mary Beth attended Berkeley Law. She worked at a large firm in Silicon Valley, then litigated class actions for the federal government. In 2014, Mary Beth was appointed a federal Administrative Law Judge, a position from which she retired in 2020. **depiction of sexual assault and physical and emotional childhood abuse throughout episode Mary Beth website Chasing Heroine IG Jeannine IG
