Why You Should Wake Up at 4:30 AM Every Day, According To A Navy SEAL
 
03:01
With a busy schedule, Jocko Willink finds time to get everything done by waking up before everyone else does. Willink, former Navy SEAL and author of "Way of the Warrior Kid" explains the one habit from service that he can't shake. For the full interview, search for "Success! How I Did It" on Apple Podcasts or your favorite app. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/success-how-i-did-it/id1205997729?mt=2  Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more.

So for example, you still wake up at 4:30 in the morning, to go workout, what was it about your time in the Seals, that you wanted to keep these habits up? Jocko Willink: They're good habits, why would you not wake up at 4:30? Richard Feloni: Well what does this bring to you? Jocko Willink: Waking up early? You just get a jump on the day. The reason I wake up at 4:30 in the morning is because no one else is awake yet, so that gives me the opportunity to do things that I need to get done, kinda selfishly for myself, and the big one in that category is working out. And it doesn't feel good at 4:30 when you get up, but by the time 7 o'clock rolls around, and you've already worked out, and you've already got some work done, and you've got some time to say goodbye to your kids before they go to school? It's infinitely better than sleeping in until 6:45, and you get out of bed, and now you've missed your kids going to school, or whatever. You're not prepared for the day, it's awful. Feloni: So if someone, maybe they don't have time to work out or they just need something that could be like a quick fix, is there something that you recommend? Willink: Oh yeah, workouts don't have to take a long time. Workouts can be very quick. Matter of fact, go do two minutes of burpees, as many burpees as you can, in two minutes, or four minutes, or six minutes, go and sprint, go and do anything very intensely, for a short period of time and you'll get great benefit out of it. Feloni: Something I'm sure you hear a lot is 4:30, like this either just can't fit into my schedule, or if I'm gonna be realistic, I'm probably not gonna wake up at 4:30, what do you tell people who say that? Willink: Yeah, and there's people that work night shifts, and there's people that it's unhealthy for them, they can't fall as-- it's like no, be healthy, get enough sleep, but, first of all, wake up at the same time every day and, if you pick that time and you start waking up at the same time every day, that's very good for you. It doesn't have to be 4:30, it could be 6:30, it could be 7, I don't know what your personal schedule is, but find out a time, pick it, set it, stick to it, and maintain that schedule, and that's gonna end up better for you. I recommend it's earlier. I recommend that you go to bed earlier, 'cause what are you doing at night, most of the time? Most of the time at night, you're not working on anything super productive, you're just winding down and watching stupid YouTube videos, or surfing the internet, reading clickbait stories, right? Don't do that, instead, go to sleep, and then wake up early. Feloni: Could you explain that notion of discipline equals freedom? Willink: If you want more freedom in your life, you have to have more discipline. If you don't have any discipline, you'll end up with absolutely no freedom, you'll end up being a slave to other people that boss you around. There's all kind of problems that can occur, if you don't have discipline in your life. And the more discipline you have, the more freedom you're gonna have. Feloni: So just the discipline of the Seals, will never-- it's impossible to leave? Willink: No, it's possible to leave, there's retired seals all over the place that are undisciplined. They've moved on, and they don't care about that anymore. It's fine, I don't judge other people on what they're doin', like they're probably stoked to sleep in and hang out with their kids, and eat breakfast in bed, that's fine. I don't have anything against that. But for me? I wanna get up and go.

The Truth Behind Those $1 Detroit Homes
 
02:21
Downtown Detroit is seeing a revitalization of sorts sparked by Dan Gilbert's $1 billion investment in the area. Since 2010, Gilbert's investment has created an estimated 6,500 jobs in downtown, and, as a result, it's nearly impossible to find a vacant apartment as residential occupancy rates reached as high as 99.4% for the downtown area. But what about the rest of the city? You can buy a bunch of homes outside of downtown Detroit for under $500 and some are even listed at just $1. Problem is: these prices are incredibly misleading. The homes are in abysmal condition and there are few city services in and around these neighborhoods. Detroit realtor John Lewis took us to the Brightmoor neighborhood to show us what these $1 Detroit homes are really like. ------------------------- Produced by William Wei ------------------------- Music: "Space Coast" by Topher Mohr & Alex Elena via The YouTube Audio Library ------------------------- Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ ------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Hugh Hefner's Son Tells Us What It Was Like Growing Up In The Playboy Mansion

While most people associate the Playboy Mansion with scantily clad playmates and sex-fueled debauchery, it served as the childhood home for Hugh Hefner's sons. Now 23, Hefner's youngest son, Cooper, recounts his childhood spent in what many consider to be a sort of adult fantasyland. For Cooper, it was quite the opposite: a child's wonderland fueled by Indiana Jones-inspired adventures in the Grotto, a zoo full of exotic animals, and epic games of hide-and-seek played in the mansion's private forest of redwood trees. Cooper shared his experiences growing up inside the mansion, and invited Business Insider along on a private tour of the grounds. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI Video On Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1bkB8qg Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What Tony Robbins Does Every Morning
 
02:54
For years, Tony Robbins has been starting his mornings with a 10-minute ritual that gives him a boost of energy and prepares him for the day. On a recent trip to Robbins' Fiji resort Namale, where he was hosting the winners of Shopify's Build a Bigger Business competition, he showed Business Insider how to perform what he calls "priming." Robbins, 57, is the world's most famous life and business coach and is as busy as ever, averaging 60 events each year. He developed priming as a way to maintain his energy and focus. The routine, which involves a forceful breathing exercise and visualization of light pouring through your head, can seem pretty wild, but it's a slightly adapted version of a yoga technique called Kapalabhati Pranayama breathing and Buddhist mindfulness meditation. Following is a transcript of the video. Tony Robbins: My very first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is — I want to get my head right. I do this thing called "priming." Now, some people get up in the morning and they meditate, and I think meditation is wonderful. But I haven't met many people that can not think thoughts. This is a different outcome. This is about priming yourself. It's about putting yourself in a state where your mind and body will respond accordingly. We'll do three steps. It's really simple — over 10 minutes. So why don't you sit down and I'll guide you through it. So, just get really comfortable. You want to be sitting up. Is that back enough for you to be able to relax? Richard Feloni: Yeah. Robbins: OK, cool. And then the first thing you're gonna do is your hands are gonna come up as you take the breath in and then you're gonna explode out the nose down. Good. Now, relax. Keep your eyes closed. Have your hands open, if you would, on your lap face-up like that. Just feel whatever you feel. Just take it in. And you don't even have to respond to me anymore. You just enjoy it and take it in. And now just let your body relax deeply. And I'd like you to begin to think of a moment in your life that you could feel really grateful for if you wanted to. It could be something little, Rich, or it could be something big. It doesn't matter. It could be from your childhood or this week. It doesn't matter. Do your best to remember it and then step into it as if you were there, kind of like stepping into your body and seeing what you saw then through your own eyes. Hearing what you heard then. Feeling what you felt then. Savor it. Maximize that sense of appreciation or enjoyment or gratitude. Enjoy it. Feel it. Fill up with it. And now we're gonna shift to the last piece. Really simple. All you're gonna do is focus on three things, one at a time, that you want to accomplish. Three things you want to achieve. Live it and feel it and experience it. How was that? Feloni: It was good! Robbins: Yeah? What'd you feel? Feloni: It feels calming. Refreshing. It was good to like, escape inside myself. Robbins: There's two worlds to master – the external world and the internal world. They both have to be mastered, but if you master the external world, you know, a la, you know, Robin Williams, but you don't master the internal world, there's a big price. This is the one to master first. And so I start my day by making that – so I have this base to deal with. I'm gonna live from gratitude today. I'm gonna live from blessing – you know, I'm gonna be a blessing in people's lives today. I'm gonna get stronger today. And I'm gonna achieve what I'm here and committed to do. And then the whole thing, you know, we did that one in a little less than 10 minutes. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Trebek allowed us to chronicle his entire daily routine, from his morning production meeting with the "Jeopardy!" staff, to sitting in the makeup chair, to the actual taping of the shows. Five episodes are filmed on each taping day, and there are approximately six taping days every month. We got to interview Trebek in a few different settings, but we also got to record his interaction with the studio audience. During each commercial break, Trebek takes questions from the audience.

The Right Way To Eat Sushi, According To Renowned Japanese Chef Nobu Matsuhisa
 
03:09
Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants and Hotels and author of "Nobu: A Memoir," shares how to eat sushi the traditional Japanese way. Following is a transcript of the video; it has been edited for clarity. Nobu Matsuhisa: I’m Nobu Matsuhisa, owner of Nobu Restaurants Group and Hotels. Chef Matsuhisa opened his first restaurant in 1987 in Los Angeles; today he owns 47. And there are six Nobu hotels around the world. Matsuhisa: You don’t need extra wasabi. Wasabi is always inside, between the rice and fish. So you can use chopsticks or your fingers — it doesn’t matter. Use what's more comfortable. OK, here is wasabi and the ginger. Normally, people take the wasabi and dip soy sauce here, right? But for me, it means a more traditional way. A piece of the fish, dip — put the soy sauce and wasabi on the middle of the fish. Then not much soy sauce. So these are the three ways: sashimi, nigiri, and roll. Nigiri sushi. Make half-turn, take the chopstick and put soy sauce on the fish side. You can see no rice. Just a touch of the soy sauce on the top of the fish. But now, ginger. A piece of ginger, after one bite, if you try the next one, some tuna or shrimp or whitefish, take one piece of the ginger. Clean the salmon taste, then try the next pieces. So, the sushi roll. Take this one, and this is no choice. Put the soy sauce in the rice but just a little. Just a little, then one bite. So everything is one bite. Don’t bite two bites. I think it’s better to eat more the light, then a little bit heavy. It means more fatty fish at the end. The final sushi may be better as a roll, even more — a cucumber, not like a fish. So cucumber roll, oshinko roll, and sour prawns. This is my way. I like that. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Why Vanilla Is So Expensive
 
03:25
Vanilla prices have climbed so high it's worth more by weight than silver. This increase in price has to do with a number of factors, including vanilla bean theft, complex pollination, extreme weather, and the rise of the "all natural" food movement. ------------------------------------------------------ Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Vanilla prices have climbed so high it's worth more by weight than silver. This increase in price has to do with a number of factors, including vanilla bean theft, complex pollination, extreme weather, and the rise of the "all natural" food movement. All of these variables combined to create the perfect recipe for a very expensive spice. Following is the transcript of the video. Narrator: You might think of vanilla as basic. The word is even used to mean boring, average, or basic. Student: Why do we have to go all vanilla on this song? See what we need is my chocolate thunder. Narrator: But vanilla may not always be so run of the mill. Vanilla prices have climbed so high it's worth more by weight than silver, and that high price tag could be bad news for lovers of ice cream, yogurt, chocolate, and even perfumes. One reason vanilla has gotten so expensive is, it's hard to grow. Vanilla vines take two to four years to fully mature, and their flowers only bloom for one day of the year. In order for the plants to produce beans, they have to be pollinated that day. In most places where vanilla is grown, it isn't a native plant, and there aren't bugs or birds capable of pollinating the flowers. Vanilla is native to Mexico, but deforestation there has greatly reduced its natural habitat. In Madagascar, where over 80% of vanilla is produced, the flowers have to be pollinated by hand. The pods need several months to cure after harvesting. The whole process is time-consuming and labor-intensive. But the record high price of vanilla also has to do with changes in the vanilla market. In the 1980s, cheaper artificial vanilla overtook the market. Vanilla farmers cut back production because they weren't making enough money. But around 2011, demand for real vanilla rose again. Big companies were joining the all-natural trend, pledging to eliminate artificial flavorings from their products, but it's taken a while for the vanilla farmers to get back in the game and they don't all want to. Growing vanilla is a stressful and volatile business because there is such high demand, vanilla beans are a target for theft. After working hard to cultivate their crops some farmers have their beans stolen. As the stolen beans move up the supply chain, they get mixed in with legally purchased beans making it difficult for buyers to know which are which. The prevent theft, farmers pick the beans before they're ripe and unripe beans means lower quality vanilla. Farmers also try to prevent theft by branding their vanilla crops with a metal pronged brand. That way buyers can identify what farm the vanilla came from. Farmers also run the risk of having their crops destroyed by extreme weather events. Cyclones are common in Madagascar and climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of those storms. If a cyclone were to wipe out vanilla crops next year, it would take until at least 2022 for new plants to start producing beans, and farmers might not want to take that risk. So the supply could continue to drop even further. The once basic, boring vanilla may wind up becoming a rare sought-after delicacy.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Is Worried That Humans Are Too Stupid For Aliens
 
03:32
A lot of people ask StarTalk Radio host Neil deGrasse Tyson if extraterrestrial life exists and why haven't we encountered any alien life yet. "Maybe they have visited us in Times Square," Tyson tells us. "But no one noticed because everybody who hangs out in Times Square is just a little crazy." A more serious concern, though, is that maybe humans are so stupid and uncivilized that aliens have decided we're not worth encountering. Neil deGrasse Tyson talks about aliens and why it actually might be a good thing that aliens haven't visited Earth yet.

Why Horseshoe Crab Blood Is So Expensive
 
03:23
Horseshoe crab blood is a vital resource to the medical field. It's unique in more ways than one: the blue color and its ability to identify bacterial contamination in small quantities. Horseshoe crab blood contains a special amebocyte that is separated and then used in FDA testing. There's a lot of questions as to how blood harvesting affects the American horseshoe crab population, but some researchers are dedicated to the cause of protecting such a significant resource. ------------------------------------------------------ Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Narrator: This blueish liquid is one of the most expensive resources in the world. No, it's not the blue milk from "Star Wars." It's actually blood from a horseshoe crab, and the stuff this blood makes costs $60,000 a gallon. So why is it so expensive and who's buying horseshoe crab blood? The blue color comes from copper in the blood. But that's not it's most interesting feature. The blood contains a special clotting agent. It's used to make a concoction called Limulus amebocyte lysate or LAL. Before LAL, scientists had no easy way of knowing whether a vaccine or medical tool was contaminated with bacteria. Like E. coli or salmonella. Scientists would inject vaccines into huge numbers of rabbits and then basically wait for symptoms to show up. But when LAL was approved for use in 1970, it changed everything. Drop a minuscule amount of it onto a medical device or vaccine, and the LAL will encase any gram-negative bacteria in a jelly cocoon. While it can't kill the bacteria, the jelly seal is like a fire alarm. Alerting us to the presence of what could become a potentially lethal infection and prevent it from spreading. Each year, the medical industry catches around 600,000 horseshoe crabs. The crabs are drained of 30% of their blood and up to 30% of the crabs don't live through the process. The survivors are returned to the water, but no one really knows how well or if they recover. In 2016, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature bumped the American horseshoe crab up to vulnerable on it's red list, one step below endangered. And the US population could keep falling, by as much as 30% over the next 40 years. LAL Labs claim that the returned crabs eventually recover, but new evidence suggests that's not always the case. Win Watson is trying to figure out what happens to the crabs when they're put back in the sea. Win Watson: So, the most immediate negative effect is mortality. Anywhere from 10% to 25% of the animals will die within the first couple days after bleeding. Narrator: Bled crabs become disoriented and weak for a period of time, and females may have trouble spawning. Watson: If they survive the first – I'll say two weeks, week, two week — and they're back in their natural habitat they did pretty well.  Narrator: But it's getting through those two weeks that's the issue. Watson: You know, based on our data and other's I think that you need to treat them a little — if you're going to get — increase their survival rate, right, you need to treat them better. Narrator: Scientists are trying to find a synthetic alternative to help reduce the strain on the horseshoe crab population. But so far, LAL is still required by the FDA for this type of testing. So if these animals really aren't recovering at the rate companies previously thought, we might eventually run out of crabs to bleed. If that happens, our lives and the lives of countless rabbits, might be at risk.

This 18-Year-Old Makes A Fortune Selling Sneakers To Celebrities Like Drake And DJ Khaled
 
03:09
Benjamin Kickz, an 18-year-old entrepreneur who sells incredibly rare sneakers to celebrities, sat down with Business Insider to discuss how he does it all. The following is a transcript of the video. Benjamin Kickz: My name is Benjamin Kickz and I'm 18 years old and I get sneakers for a lot of celebrities and also sell them on my website to the public. I got into sneakers at 13, so like, 5 years ago, but I really started selling them heavy at 15. Basically what made me get into buying and selling shoes was because my mom bought me this one shoe, the LeBron 9 Galaxys, and everyone was like “oh this is the wave.” I just felt like I had the sauce, so I just started buying shoes. The first sneakers I ever bought was either the Galaxy Foams or the Milo 7s. And then my dad was like “oh, you must be crazy, you're out of your mind.” And then I sold them for $1,000. He was like “oh, so you found someone just as dumb as you.” Basically, I started off with DJ Khaled cause he was the first celebrity that I sold sneakers to. Then he introduced me to a bunch of other people like P. Diddy and French Montana and all of them. Before he had a Snapchat, we would just hang out all the time and do stuff. Then he made a Snapchat which obviously went viral I'm pretty sure we all know. And then from there, he just started posting Snapchats of stuff we always use to do. And people used to think it was funny and not normal but it was regular stuff we did.So he put me on through Snapchat basically and then just helped my business. How's business, you know, it's boomin'. A lot of my clients are in the music industry but I guess it's because I was always into hip-hop as a kid, like, that's all I listened to. After DJ Khaled, he introduced me to a bunch of other artists, so I guess it just went from there. Athletes too but I'm not into sports as much I'm into hip-hop. Some of my favorite artists are like Migos, Drake, Future, Lil Wayne, obviously. Manny: What is it like to hang and party with Drake? Benjamin: I mean, I don't think he's like how he is in his music because I've never been with him when he's in his feelings, so I don't know. But like … he's cool, he's mad cool. Manny: So out of all those artists who are your biggest customers? Benjamin: Probably P. Diddy. Like, he just buys like, phew. Yeah, very, very bulk. Manny: Tell me about what you think about the Under Armour shoes. I think the Under Armour shoes are amazing, I love them. I got a pair for myself, personally. The Steph Curry ones. I think the Big Baller Brand shoes, I think they're dope. Everyone's saying they're too expensive for like $500 retail price. Personally, I think it's a little high, but the shoe's dope and obviously they're some of the best players out right now so, you know, do your thing. Manny: They're getting a lot of props for just taking their own lane and making their own shoe. Is that something you could see yourself getting into? Benjamin: Yeah, most definitely. I mean, I wouldn't mind a contract depending on like, who it would be, but I would definitely do my own shoe also. I have some things in the making, but I don't know, we have to put it all together, you know? Manny: What's your merch? What's your brand? Benjamin: Oh, Boomin'. This. Manny: How's that doing? Benjamin: Boomin'. -------------------------------------------------- Follow Business Insider on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Where To Get Free Food For Your Birthday
 
02:46
I hopped around New York City on my birthday to eight different restaurants to see how much free food I could get just for being born. Following is a transcript of the video. Emma Fierberg: Here are the free things you can get on your birthday. The key to getting free stuff on your birthday is signing up for loyalty programs. Here's where I went on my birthday. My first stop was Au Bon Pain. If you're a rewards member, they give you a free sandwich or a salad on your birthday. Hell yeah. I ordered a black bean burger, showed them my ID, and they gave it to me for free. Next up, I went to Panera. They give you a free pastry on your birthday if you’re a rewards member. So I got a free cinnamon scone. It was okay. It was really sugary, but it was free! Then we went to IHOP. I hadn't gotten my birthday coupon yet, but they gave me a free stack of pancakes anyway. So, next we went to Moe's Southwestern Grill. I ordered my burrito, got to the cashier, scanned the QR code for my free burrito in the Moe's app, it disappeared from the app, and she told me it didn't work. She called over her co-worker. He told me they're not a participating location. So, I ended up having to pay for my birthday burrito. So, if you're going to go to Moe's for your free birthday burrito, check if they're a participating location first. Next, I went to Jamba Juice. All I had to do was punch in my phone number after having signed up for their loyalty program, and I got a free smoothie. It was chocolate peanut butter banana. It was so good. Minus the plastic straw. Those are bad for the ocean. As if I hadn’t had enough sugar yet that day, it was time for Krispy Kreme! I had downloaded their app. You get a free doughnut just for signing up, and you get a free birthday doughnut. I got two free doughnuts. TWO! So I had done all this bopping around getting free stuff, but all I really wanted for my birthday was cake. We found a Sprinkles Cupcakes. Once again my birthday coupon had not come through yet, but they honored it and gave me my free birthday cupcake anyway. It was red velvet. It was pretty good. Last stop was Wendy's. I had read online you get a free Frosty on your birthday at Wendy's! I got in line at Wendy’s, got to the register, said, “Hello it's my birthday. Can I have a free Frosty?” And they looked at me like I had four heads. So he went and got his manager. The manager came back and said, “Chocolate or vanilla?” And I said, “Chocolate” and it was free! I don't know if this works everywhere or if they just felt awkward or bad for me, but I did get a free Frosty on my birthday. By the end of the day, my brother had had enough. There are so many places I didn't even get to like Dairy Queen, Ben & Jerry's, Cold Stone, Pinkberry, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts … there’s so many. Endless possibilities. If you'd like to go to those places, more power to you. Enjoy your birthday treats. Treat yourself. It's your birthday. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

What It Takes To Be An NBA Referee
 
03:46
It takes years and a series of trials to get to the NBA level of officiating. Zach Zarba is a 15-year NBA referee. Like many professional referees, he started by refereeing little kids and eventually moved up to the high school and college levels. Now he shares the court with the likes of LeBron James and Stephen Curry.  Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: It's always easy to blame the referee. But what's it like to be that Official? Zach Zarba: My name is Zach Zarba and I'm a 15-year NBA referee. The pressure is underestimated — you know, it's taken for granted sometimes. It takes a lot to be able to function and exist in a pressure-filled environment and you have to be calm. Zach has had his fair share of court time. He played D3 basketball for SUNY New Paltz. Zarba: My father was a baseball, local baseball umpire in Brooklyn and he did high school and college and he kind of gave me the idea to try officiating. How did Zach become one of the NBA's 65 referees? It's a long road to reach his level. Zarba: You start from the bottom. You start from CYO 4, 5-year-olds, 6 year olds. You work your way up. You do high school basketball, you do a little bit of college. I did a lot of work in the New York City Pro Am leagues and and then the D-League. If you're good enough, you go to training camp. If that goes well, you might be recruited to the G-League. Only those at the top of the G-League get accepted as NBA referees Zarba: You have to be able to run up and down with the best athletes in the world. You have to stay light. The lighter you are, the less wear and tear on your legs, on your knees, on your feet. That's going to give you a longer career. Clearly, staying in shape is key. How does Zach stay trim? Zarba: So, for me personally, it's an hour cardio a day. It’s core work, it's you know, abs. It's a lot of weight work on the legs to protect the knees. Referees have to keep more than just their bodies in shape. Zarba: I do a lot of meditation during the day before the game and stuff like that just in order to find a calm place in order to have clarity because we're making decisions that likely affect people's careers, people's jobs. Someone wins, someone loses and you just want the utmost clarity and peace in a charged environment. On game day, Zach and his fellow officials will meet around 11 a.m. to catch up. They'll head to the arena 90 minutes before tip-off to run through their pre-game routine. Zarba: The interaction with players is an ongoing art. Some nights are easier than others, but communication is key. Communication and listening skills are huge. At the end of the day, we may agree to disagree on some subjects, but the respect comes both ways. We are not more lenient with the stars. I would say the star players actually are disadvantaged more than anyone else. You're going to concede that we make mistakes, which we do, the mistakes we make are going to be on the people who have the ball in their hand 75% of the time, which in this case is the star players. They hold the ball 75% of the time. They put pressure on the defense and pressure on the officials, and if and when mistakes are made, they're usually made with them. On top of the stress of the game, refs are on the road a ton. Sometimes for up to 10 days at a time Zarba: The travel is difficult. For the more veteran guys, it's 24, 25 nights gone from your family a month. It's basically 8 months on and then 4 months off because all that time gone during the winter, you have to reconnect with your family and so we're home during the summer.

A Former Navy SEAL Commander Says The Best Defense Is To Run – This Is Why
 
02:24
Jocko Willink, a former Navy SEAL commander, host of the "Jocko Podcast," and the author of "Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual," believes your best chances might be to run from a fight. Following is a full transcript of the video. Jocko Willink: If someone attacks me and they want to punch or kick me, I can just run away. They're not holding onto me. I can get away from them. It's when someone grabs you that you need some technique to get out of there, or someone takes you to the ground — that's when you need some technique to get out of there. If someone just wants to punch me, well, I'll walk away from them or run away from them. That's OK. Hi, I'm Jocko Willink. I'm retired from the military and just wrote a book called Discipline Equals Freedom Field Manual. Obviously, I am a fan of jiu-jitsu. No. 1: It's very practical, like I said, for self-defense. And again, the goal of jiu-jitsu in self-defense isn't to take someone down to the ground — the goal in jiu-jitsu for self-defense is actually to be able to defend yourself on the ground, get up, and get away from an attacker. That's what the goal is. Now, some people might think: “Well, Jocko, I don't want to run away if somebody wants to fight me. I want to fight them.” Well, let's think about where that might end up for you. No. 1: You don't know if this person has a weapon or not. What if they have a knife? What if they have a pistol? What if they've got three or four friends? And now you're getting either shot, stabbed, mutilated, or otherwise maimed and killed. That's not what you're looking for on a Friday night as you're walking down the street. OK, so let's say you're so tough that the other guy — he doesn't have a knife, he doesn't have a gun, he doesn't have any friends — and you take him out and break his arm, choke him, and put him to sleep. Well now guess what happens? You're getting arrested. Now you're getting in a lawsuit. Now you have to pay this person money that you actually wanted to beat up. So it's a lose-lose situation to get in a confrontation on the street. If you can break contact and get away, break contact and get away. That's what you should learn self-defense for. Obviously, if someone is doing something that they're attacking someone in your family and you have to step in to defend yourself, well, that's why you continue training all the time — because that might happen, and you have to be prepared for that. Optimally, you get out of there: You break contact, you get away. If you have to stand and fight, you train yourself so that you're able to do it. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Why Louboutin Shoes Are So Expensive
 
03:14
Christian Louboutin's trademark red-bottomed shoes have become iconic. Beyoncé wore a custom pair of boots for her Coachella performance, and Cardi B slipped on a pair of "bloody shoes" for her "Bodak Yellow" music video. But why do these heels cost hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars? ------------------------------------------------------ Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, retail, and more. Subscribe to our channel and visit us at: http://www.businessinsider.com/ BI on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/businessinsider/ BI on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/businessinsider/ BI on Twitter: https://twitter.com/businessinsider -------------------------------------------------- Following is a transcript of the video: Narrator: What makes these shoes worth almost $800? Christian Louboutin is the mastermind behind these iconic red-bottomed shoes. It's safe to say his footwear has stepped into the mainstream. Celebrities all over the world wear them. "You know the ones with the high heels and the red bottoms?" ♪ These expensive, these is red bottoms ♪ ♪ These is bloody shoes ♪ Narrator: Louboutin even had the red bottoms trademarked. The signature Louboutin pumps, start at $695. The most expensive pair, nearly $6,000. So how did this craze start? Christian Louboutin had the idea for red soles in 1993. An employee was painting her nails red. Louboutin snagged the bottle and painted the soles of a prototype shoe. Just like that, the red soles were born. So, what makes these shoes worth the cost? In 2013, when the New York Times asked Louboutin, why his shoes are so expensive, he blamed production costs. Louboutin said, "It's expensive to make shoes in Europe." From 2008 to 2013, he said his company's production costs had doubled as the euro strengthened against the dollar, and competition increased for quality materials from factories in Asia. David Mesquita, the co-owner of Leather Spa, says craftsmanship also plays a part in the shoes' high price tag. His company works directly with Louboutin to repair its shoes, repainting and replacing the red soles. David Mesquita: I mean there's a lot of things that go into the design of a shoe, and the making of a shoe. Most importantly, I think is, who's designing it, who's manufacturing it, and also what materials they're using to make the shoes. Whether you're talking about feathers, rhinestones, or exotic materials, there's so much attention to detail that they put into their manufacturing and designing of their shoes. Narrator: For instance, these $3,595 Louboutins are embellished with Swarovski Crystals. And these raccoon fur boots cost $1,995. When it all comes down to it, people are paying for the status symbol. Producer Spencer Alben bought a pair of Louboutins for her wedding. Spencer Alben: It makes me sound so stuck up, but I love the red soles because it's such like a fashion icon symbol. There's something about them that when you see them in a picture, you instantly know what those are. So it's like a status symbol I guess, which makes me sound terrible. They were over $1,000, which when I say that now, is insane for one pair of shoes that you're probably never gonna wear again. It's like something that everyone knows, so the second you see the red bottoms, it's like, I know what those are, I know what those cost. And it's so superficial that we care about that, but it really is something that is universal. You see that and you instantly know what those are, and it's something special. So I think, something as silly as the color of the sole on the shoe, makes them so special, because it's universally identifiable. Narrator: Would you drop $1,000 for red-bottomed shoes?

How Bill Gates Makes And Spends His $89 Billion Fortune
 
01:42
With a net worth of approximately $89 billion, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is one of the wealthiest men in the world. If he spent $1 million a day, it'd take him 245 years to spend his fortune. Here's how he made all that cash. In 1975, Gates co-founded Microsoft. At 31, he became the world's youngest billionaire at the time. In 1995, he released Windows 95 and became the world's richest man. He's been at the top of the list ever since. Gates is also a leading philanthropist. He stepped down as Microsoft CEO to focus on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It has given away $41.3 billion to charity. Gates doesn't forget to splurge on himself, though. He bought a $21 million jet in 1997. He's had tons of luxurious cars over the years. He even once got arrested for speeding in a Porsche 911. Gates has an extensive art collection. In 1988, he spent $36 million on a Winslow Homer painting. That piece hangs in his $63 million home in Seattle. It has 24 bathrooms, 6 kitchens, a reception hall that holds 200 people, a home theater, and an artificial stream stocked with fish. In 2010, Bill, Melinda, and Warren Buffett created the "The Giving Pledge." Those who join pledge to give half of their wealth to charity. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.
