    Trimmed Joe Rogan Interview of Johann Hari - Rethinking Addiction & the War on Drugs

    Trimmed Joe Rogan Interview of Johann Hari - Rethinking Addiction & the War on Drugs

    This is a heavily trimmed interview by Joe Rogan of Johann Hari on drug legalization, addiction and enforcement. The original is amazing and worthwhile (you'll see the War on Drugs very differently), but nearly 3.5 hours. Even though it's important and worthwhile, I couldn't get people to commit for that long, so I made this hour and fifteen minute version. The original is great, with lots of fascinating stories - find it at JoeRogan.net (episode #1250). Keywords: addiction, drugs, legalization, joe roagan, johann hari, switzerland, portugal, prostitution, emotional pain, war on drugs

    Attorney and former Prosecutor Boone Phillips on Alex Bozarjian live TV sexual battery case

    Attorney and former Prosecutor Boone Phillips on Alex Bozarjian live TV sexual battery case

    *Attorney and former Prosecutor Boone Phillips on the Alex Bozarjian live TV sexual battery case .*

    Boone sheds light on the December 7, 2019 alleged sexual battery, on live television, of Ms. Alex Bozarjian ( https://twitter.com/wsavalexb ) , a 23 year old televsion reporter for NBC's Savannah, Ga affiliate, WSAV.

    The alleged perpetrator is Tommy Callaway, a married father in his 40's.

    It is alleged, and depicted in the video immediately below, that when Mr. Callaway ran past Ms. Bozarjian as she was reporting on Savannah's Bridge Run race, he whacked he on her buttocks, and then kept running.

    Immediately after this contact, Ms. Bozarjian's expression and demeaner change dramatically - she appears stunned, upset, and in disbelief. A few seconds later, she resumes reporting, but still appears shaken.

    This was all captured on live television, and the internet video above has been viewed more than 12 million times.

    Even though he was wearing dark sunglasses, audiences were able to identify Mr. Callaway through other images of him and his race bib number.

    Three days later, on Dec. 10th, Ms. Bozarjian appeared on the CBS This Morning national television program (the video is immediately below). A statement from Mr. Callaway's attorney was read, saying they regret the situation, but he "did not act with any criminal intentions ... We do not expect any criminal charges."

    Around that same time, Mr. Callaway participated in a filmed interview with WSAV television's JoAnn Merrigan.

    On Friday, Dec. 13th, Mr. Callaway was charged ( https://www.wsav.com/crime-safety/breaking-man-accused-of-slapping-wsav-reporter-on-backside-arrested/ ) with *misdemeaner sexual battery.*

    He turned himself in to detective, was booked at the Chatham County Jail, and was released on $1,300 bond.

    Paul Graham - Do Things That Don't Scale

    Paul Graham - Do Things That Don't Scale

    This is an audio version of "Do Things That Don’t Scale" by Paul Graham (paulgraham.com/ds.html).

    Read by Mark Gavagan, author of Streaker's Journal (streakersjournal.com), founder of Crushh.com (crushh.com). On Twitter: @mgav

    Partial transcript: One of the most common types of advice we give at Y Combinator is to do things that don't scale. A lot of would-be founders believe that startups either take off or don't. You build something, make it available, and if you've made a better mousetrap, people beat a path to your door as promised. Or they don't, in which case the market must not exist. [1]

    Actually startups take off because the founders make them take off. There may be a handful that just grew by themselves, but usually it takes some sort of push to get them going. A good metaphor would be the cranks that car engines had before they got electric starters. Once the engine was going, it would keep going, but there was a separate and laborious process to get it going.

    Recruit

    The most common unscalable thing founders have to do at the start is to recruit users manually. Nearly all startups have to. You can't wait for users to come to you. You have to go out and get them.

    Stripe is one of the most successful startups we've funded, and the problem they solved was an urgent one. If anyone could have sat back and waited for users, it was Stripe. But in fact they're famous within YC for aggressive early user acquisition.
