"I don't think people realize that if you own one of these devices and it's not I know it's not just a LEX. I know that it's certainly lots. You know Google's got their own Sarah set of everything to and I. There's there's several out there but I think if you own one of these devices the thing that you quickly learn is about them is that they understand more and more of what you're saying and and so all of a sudden thinking about the possibility becomes limitless. Now I use mine all the time I mean I clearly have one in every room and it's because is this She's got I call her. Is that wrong is calling her to okay. I don't know if that's wrong because I know it's not I mean I I I don't want to call it it and because I'm afraid while it's listening independent So no I call her. So it's nothing personal we'll maybe it is. I don't know anyway. So but but she you know she schedules. She's scheduled my calendar for me when I'm in a hurry. She gets groceries for me. She reminds joins me of things she said. When I do all the cooking in the house she sits on my timers she you know my wife uses her as her alarm clock because she doesn't have to set an alarm clock all she's got to do is tell her what she wants to get up right so and she and she learns different commands right? You don't just have to say stop. You can say off you. You're right. They're just she's picking up on things all the time and the more you talk to her the more she is expanding this this range right that she does and I don't know that people understand that and I don't think people appreciate and maybe that's a poor choice of words but I don't think people appreciate just how vast and powerful she can be do they. Yeah no I I really agree. I think a lot of people think that she's just a computer and she's just responding on what she's been taught but if you have multiple people in your house to like in my house I have my husband and his name is Warren and Warren can say to Alexa. Who speaking and she'll say I'm talking to Warren? Like she knows who she's he's talking to and my son is Christopher and I can say. Call Chris and she knows exactly who I'm talking about are I'll call my son and she knows that that's Christopher for and she will call him and so there's there's just they really do learn and the more you use them. The more they learned now that you know can be good it can be bad but they the more you maximize. Don't use them as a really nice speaker because they have really good speaker systems. Bet You used them to do stuff they really are gonNA benefit everything you do all men at work. I agree and you make code impeach. Nineteen that I want to quote you on and I want you to expand on because this is a question I think a lot of listeners Well not a lot but I would say a good portion right well. That is a lot because I have a lot of support. A lot of they're all over the world and they're probably going because because you said and it's artificial intelligence should not make you fear the future it should. It should make you look forward to it with anticipation. Do you mind talking about that expanding on that because I think people need to be put at ease about this. I mean. We're trying to do this but I would love you to go ahead and dig into that deeper so hey I is going to make your life easier if you figure out what you do on and Monday to Friday or a Saturday or Sunday. There's so much of your day that that is mandated that you must do this at a certain time we we're very task based and so. Let's just take a Saturday you know. Typically people aren't going to work on Saturday night. Everybody and so you get up and you you think okay. I've got to do laundry. I've got some groceries. I've got to get the grass cut like I've got a vacuum to clean the house. You know like you've got all these things that your day off is no longer a day day off and if you think about where artificial intelligence can come in is it can take away a lot of that boring mundane stuff. Like for instance in my house. It's not ai yet but it will be I have one of those robotic vacuum cleaners. So it's called a Roomba Roomba. Yeah Yeah Rumba Rumba and so yeah and so right now. It's not right now. So it's set right now. That every Wednesday at nine o'clock vacuums my house but wouldn't it be nice if I didn't even the need to set it like it. All of a sudden looks and goes holy cow. This floor needs a good wash. It needs to get back in ended automatically. Does it for me like wouldn't wouldn't it be nice if I cook or you. You know Friday night I sit down and have dinner and we open the last bottle of wine and then Saturday morning I get up and what's sitting on. My front step is only groceries including new wine because my I knew I drank the last bottle of wine in the house and this is the kind of WanNa have house like it's going to open up our day so that we're not doing all of those time. Can it can cut your grass can. Do you know it could potentially do. Your laundry can be so many things that we have to do because it's part of keeping up with life and if all of that goes away don't get to enjoy life a little bit more like we would have time to be more social. We would have time to exercise. We'd have time to do the things that we want to do. Instead of the things we have to do you okay. So can I play devil's advocate just a little bit with please. Absolutely it was okay. I mean because we're on the same page but ultimately I'm just doing this because I feel like well. I know that I have listeners. Who Oh but Rhonda Rondo Rondo? Rondo Rondo Rana now. I know you don't understand. I even hate it that when I go to Amazon and then go to Google Google that they're all of a sudden. Get feeding the advertisements of something. Similar that I just looked at Amazon data even bothers me. I don't need my vacuum cleaner to all of sudden wake up and decide you know what not your decision but your house is dirty. I'm a little uncomfortable with that helped me. Yeah I and I I understand that people don't like if you bought this you'll like that. But but the reason they don't like it is not that the suggestions aren't helpful because I most people most people say you know they're actually right like I I do like that But what they feel afraid is is the big brother thing they feel that somebody's watching them or somebody's telling them their houses dirty well. It is so so clean it you know and and so yeah. They don't like it but I think that they don't like the messages that they're receiving that somebody's watching them. Somebody's judging them. Somebody he's saying you need this instead of that and I think that once we realized that it's not a person judging you that your house is too dirty or not a person. Judging you that you need to buy more of this or whatever it happens it is it really is designed to make your life easy like think about when you go into the grocery store and you know you need groceries stories right and let's be honest most people even if they write a list. Although I don't think most people do they still leave it on the counter and so you get to the grocery store and you end up walking through every aisle. Oh and if you're hungry you're going to buy way more than you need and you're going to get to the cash and go. Oh my God what was I thinking and you bring stuff home and of course stuff rots in your fridge because you're hungry hungry when you bought it and you just bought an impulse now. If your grocery shopping was done based on a I you wouldn't have extra things that you don't need. You wouldn't spend forty five minutes in the grocery store. Mike it would know that you use the last of of the butter so another pound of butter is going to get shipped to your house. You're not gonNA have fourteen of them in your house because you don't need fourteen pounds of butter you know and so it's going to be able to keep track of your inventory and do that automatically for you. Yup people don't like it. You can devil's advocate because they don't like that something is watching but if you look at the bigger picture that's something just in your life a whole lot easier.

"Is Jay is an Oh man I love it. I love it when I have these great shows. Jake Arrieta is great great but this one you don't get your Alexa Speaker too close to the show because she's probably going to go into some sort of weird type of thing because we're probably gonNA be saying that name a lot. Why am I going to say that? Because I've got the wonderful the outstanding the marvelous magnificent the brilliant Rhonda scarf scarf. Yeah she wrote this book called. Alexa is stealing your job. Turn off your Alexa right now. Nothing you can't some of you. Some of you actually listened to my show on Alexa by the way. Thank you for listening. If you're listening to this show right now on Alexa Hi Hi Hi Alexa. That's just GonNa mess him up right. It's GonNa mess her up because I said Alexa Eh there. I said it again anyway. It's going to be it's going to be awesome. Yeah I've got an Alexa. Yeah you can hear my Alexa at going on for the background. She doesn't even know what to do with the whole thing. It's it's it's awesome so we're going to be. We're going to be talking with her because it's going to be an outstanding show. She's a lot of fun. She's a brilliant speaker and she is going to really lightness S. about what's going on in the world of artificial intelligence and it's going to be fantastic but before we get to her. Let's do what we do every week. Right I want to walk you through the four areas of your life. You know that I believe we are four part people right. We are physical people. We are mental. People were emotional people and we're spiritual people and because of that you know we need to check in every now and then about you know. How are we doing in those areas? So let's do that and skilled went to ten physically one being miserable ten being outstanding out there. Everyone how you doing physically that. What's IT number? KNBR five is average. So you know you better average lower than average right in the you know I always tell you ask the first question asked. Why are you that number? Why are you whatever number? You are outwear you that number and then the second question is what can you do right now to change whatever number. You are right now to the next number because you don't need to get to ten you just need to get to the next number right physically right. So what is what do you need to do right now. Are you eating something you shouldn't. Are you drinking. Something you said are you are are you may not. Maybe you need to get up and get out and do some exercise you you know you could take the show with you on the podcast right and for those of you who listen facebook live. You can actually watch it on your phone. You can listen to cast box. FM Live some of. You can tune in you know later on in the week to Oak Ninety three point five F N I mean there's just so many ways to listen to sean while you're Actually walking around and getting some extra so. There's a lot of ways that you could do things to help improve your physical wellbeing. So what can you do to help you get to that next number. Okay so you got that first number that physical number. What is the second and we're GONNA talk about? Is the mental number right. How're you doing mentally? And what do I mean by that. Well what I mean by that is what are you feeding your brain mentally right. What are you doing to feed yourself? There's two halves of the brain's Ray. We get the right side to bring which is a creative. You know kind of fun side and then we have this logical side the left side of the brain which is more logical and more linear thinking. What are you doing to feed? Both houses rains. What what type? What types hype things? Are you doing to feed that right. It's the same scale miserable tens outstanding. You why are you mentally that way and then what can you change it you know. What can you consume right? What can you read? He'd what can you do. You can pick up an instrument you can learn a foreign language pick up a foreign language those things all bring the whole brain together right because we need to be careful about what we're consuming in order to increase our knowledge wjr because of the more knowledge we have the better. It is for us to make decisions right so so on that scale of one to ten. You got that number that your mental number so you got a physical number and mental number and then the third area of your life is this the emotional aspect right and what I mean by emotional well the emotional aspect of US really talk about it in terms of two types of things right emotional quotient sir emotional intelligence when it comes to psychology. And you know we're talking about here's one how well are you able to control your emotions right. Do the little things the bug you right or can you keep yourself even right when somebody cuts you up traffic. Do you have. Do you immediately respond with that gesture from your right hand. Rakers Robin steering. Well unless you give them a double gesture in that case you know that's even worse right because it tells you how out of control your motions all right. So how are you able to control your emotions because you always have a choice right and then the second part of that is how well you able to really with others right. Are you really to understand their emotions right in in in walk in their shoes and as best as you can right. That's the that's the other piece of this right so I was killed when ten one miserable ten outstanding. How you doing emotionally right? What's that number and same questions? Why are you that way and then you know? What can you do to change that immediately right so you got three numbers you got a physical number? You've got a mental number you got emotional number and then finally only the spiritual area right a lot of people sometimes give me some static about this ritual area. You know the truth of the matter is there's things that we are never going to be able to explain what science right unless you believe that we're just soil soulless creatures. If you believe that were sold as preachers I can't help you from there. But if you believe that we soul if you believe that there's things that we just can't explain if you believe that there's things that science can explain that that touches you somewhere deeper than an emotion that touches you somewhere then place that you don't understand certainly touches you in a way that you can't explain physically. Well that's the spiritual area right and you know we all have ways of being able to deal with their spiritual area for some people. It's God for some people. It's you know nature nature for some people. It's meditation for some people they believe in Karma. There's a number of different things right that people use in order to get themselves re centered and at at peace and so the question is. How's that working for you right? How's that going? Is it going well for you is it is it. Is it working for you right so on that same scale one to ten one being miserable ten being outstanding. How are you doing in spiritual area and then same two questions right? Why are you that way? And what can you do to change it right so you got four four numbers right and the whole thing about this for numbers. It's like sitting in a chair right if the chairs even it's not very comfortable and it doesn't do good things for posture and at the same time if the chairs there's too low it makes things really uncomfortable and we can't be in a really good position to do what we need to do. So let's bring those lights up. You know work on it and then you know. Let's bring it up to the right height so that you can do what you need to do. And that leads me to my next guest.

Everybody please welcome come to the show and what goes to show Rhonda scarf stay. It's wonderful to be here. Thank you very much. Thank you so Ronda. He wrote this book and it is is an outstanding book. It's called Alexa. Is Stealing your job and I and there goes my Alexa again. Every time I said so there she goes so if you hear if you hear her in the back I may just have to refer this to my echo device from here on out because every time I say that word feeling everybody who listens to this show is going to get the same problem. So I'll say quietly. Alexa is stealing your job. That's what's going on there The book is outstanding. I thought one of the things I loved about reading this book. And it's it's a very fast read. I thought it would. It just flowed so well at once. They started couldn't put it down and next thing I knew I was done. And so it was fantastic so very well written. Congratulations one of the one of the things I really enjoyed about three. And and is that you really really. They do make a case for us to say look. Artificial intelligence is coming and we can't stop it. And matter of fact I want to quote you as something because I love it win on page seven which favorite number which you say? I'm hoping that after reading this book you'll be in a better place to make yourself relevant and I love that win. Authors will go out on record and say this rhyme writing this book. Because this book isn't to scare you this book isn't the frighten you. This book is to help become relevant. So why don't we just jump in with you in here and get to know artificial intelligence elegance and Alexa just in case our echo devices. When did you? Why don't you tell us what what should we? How do we define it at? What should we know you know how do we? Because it's more than just write that echo device correct. Yeah yeah absolutely so really artificial intelligence estimate to make it fairly simple. Is when your machine whether you want to call it your echo device or your google vice or whatever it happens to be has the ability not to show intelligence and that's a little bit different from a computer so computer will do what you tell it to do. So control P print unit control troll s safe so it follows instructions but a I has the ability to not just follow instructions. But figure out what you mean and learn from that so like if you take your echo device and and you know you say what's the temperature outside. She's going to respond until you. What the temperature outside is but she's also going join to learn that you might be able to say is a cold outside and she's going to say yeah it's cold outside or it is thirty eight degrees or whatever it happens to be and so oh? She develops natural thinking she develops and I say she because we're talking about her They developed the ability to problem. Solve to learn to understand to almost intuitively figure out what you're trying to do. So she's not really like a computer where like I said controlled P. means print control s means say like they're they're taught very clear functions and much like the way people have natural intelligence. Ai is developing that intelligence. From what it does it's learning. Yeah it is..
Can We Win the War on Cockroaches?
"Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel I'm here with great news. Cockroaches are quickly becoming resistant to several different insecticides. All at the same time. Cool cool cool one Michael SCHARF. A professor in the Department of Entomology at Purdue University along with his team found these pests are developing cross resistance to multiple classes of exterminators insecticides insecticides. The team's work was published in the June twenty nineteen issue of scientific reports. The problem is that each class of insecticides works differently to kill these his creditors so exterminators frequently mix them or switch them up to combat infestations. Cockroaches are resistant to multiple insecticides. Well you can see where this is going. Sheriff and his team used apartment buildings in Indiana and Illinois. That had infestations of German cockroaches as their experimental grounds I because it is very glamorous. They caught some of the roaches and tested them to see which insecticides had the lowest resistance on the roaches low resistance Austin spins the roaches would be more vulnerable to the treatments which scientists went onto us for six months. Sharf said in a press. Release if you have the ability to test just the roaches. I and picnic insecticide. That has low resistance that ups the odds but even then we had trouble controlling populations the researchers rotated -tated three different insecticides. That method kept the roach population stable over six months. Meaning it neither increased or decreased when they mixed to insecticides leads. The Roach population flourished according to the press release flourished being just about the last verb. Anyone wants to hear when talking about cockroaches when the the team used just one insecticide for the entire six months and the roaches had low resistance to that particular insecticide they were nearly wiped out. Well great right not really. Because of even ten percent of the roaches had resistance to that insecticide. The population would increase. Sharf said quote four to six fold in just one generation ration-. We didn't have a clue that something like that could happen this fast during this test. The Roach is also developed resistance to several other kinds of insecticides decides even if the new generations had never been exposed to them before so now what Scharff said he recommends combating roaches with more than chemical warfare including traps and vacuums quote. Some of these methods are more expensive than using only insecticides but if those insecticides aren't going to control or eliminate a population you're just throwing money away oh and hey you've probably heard that

"I don't recall it there. You go even though I listen when you were probably listening intently right. Maybe I'm just forgetful. I don't think it's forgetful. I think it's odd when I first started doing interviews. I was interviewing murderers in Wisconsin in northern California. It's my favorite line. My wife when I first met her I was talking to a mass murderer group thinking of you and she didn't find that creepy. We've been married for a long time. We've known each other for close to fifty years. Maybe she did find it Krino. I've seen what she said. She thought it was very romantic. I recall correctly. She said it was really hard to date someone else. After that. It's a nice thing to say it it is. I love my wife I would go into a room. Put my Sony Cassette tape recorder down. It would be already ready running so I would turn it on. It would be running and then I would put the taper quarter down where the person I was speaking to my subject. Whatever could see see it clearly? They could see. There's the tape recorder. I wouldn't ask permission. I would just make it clear that I was recording and then I would proceed and I had this game this stupid game I played with myself. How long could I remain silent and keep someone talking and I finally achieved a full hour? Where my voice was not on the tape and I was so so? Oh incredibly proud of myself like you did it. Some kind of Special Olympics hemming podcast and being a lot easier I come in I could leave. Do some other work work. But does that require talkative. Subject certainly helps. And I would always transcribe these interviews. I would sit and transcribe transcribe. Everything and I became transfixed by language Pie. How people talk how they interrupt themselves how they create a narrative etc etc.? I would transcribe everything myself. I don't do that anymore. I feel like I've lost something something for your purposes when you ask questions do you think about whether it's a short question versus a long question or a leading question versus an open question. Do you think about those things. Um You just ask what pops in your head. I don't like having lists of questions. I always think an interview is going to be infirm. If there's a list list of questions and the interviewer ticks off one by one tells me that they're not really engaged on some level mother pretending to listen listening. I don't have a list of questions either as you may have. I have noted that. There's not that many of the questions that I asked you. I didn't know I was GONNA ask you. We share a common interest in a person and who in the annals of interrogation is quite a significant figure on SCHARF. I Love Han. Sharf have chapter of my book is devoted to hunt SCHARF. Good Lourdes to read your book. This is the literacy problem. Now I have to go out and I have to read your book. I'm disappointed that you didn't read it in advance of this interview. I'm going to tells me a lot about you. I'm going to read it all right. Go to the strand tonight. It's destroyed has signed copies so you'll get a signed copy. Okay into remind people. Han Sharf was the most successful Nazi interrogator of downed American airmen to remind people you think that the well 'cause I talked about. Oh Yes hon SCHARF. I have talked about him on the show before and some people are loyal listener. So I'm reminding reminding them and he did not use even even those Nazi Germany. He did not not use torture. He did not use intimidation. What did he do? It was knife you talk to people. He was interested in them in that worked art. Yup Is that always works and what happened. Han Scharf I and my chapter would this interesting historical tidbit. Tell Lord I have to read this immediately tell us. He emigrated to the United States and was welcomed into the United States. Well of course like Nazis and he went to work for Disney Zinni world and he became an expert on creation of elaborate stained. Glass Windows for Disneyworld so we should always remember that being being an accomplished Nazi can be a kind of prerequisite for employment at the Disney Corporation..

E. L. this was a really tough search first of all the decision for Tim Sloan to step down was abrupt and the board did not have time to prepare for the search until they had to start actually conducting at. in addition to that it was hard to find someone who wanted to take responsibility for Wells Fargo it's a bit of a mess right now so the new CEO is Charles Scharf who is a. Charlie Scharf is of well known man on Wall Street he was the chief financial officer of Citigroup's investment banking business he worked for JP Morgan where he ran the consumer facing bank and he was also the C. E. O. of visa so bankers know him he doesn't have any kind of colorful reputation he's just known as a rather steady fellow who has led companies the size before and we'll see how he does and yet he is choosing to live in New York City which is seen as pretty unusual why is that is that viewed as a red flag well I think what this really says is that Wells Fargo was willing to make some compromises to get Scharf to come on board. sharks life is in New York his family is here when he was the CEO of visa he found it difficult to operate on the west coast he really wanted to be back in New York and that was part of why he left visa so to to convince him to join them I think Wells Fargo really had to make that compromise in what is this mean for customers retail customers people who bank with Wells Fargo of which there are many here on the west coast for customers I don't think that there's going to be anything that they're gonna notice really quickly but in my own reporting I have found that there are areas where Wells Fargo appears to still be mistreating some customers I will deter story in in August where we found that the bank was charging some customers fees even after it told them that it had closed their accounts so you know that's sort certainly one of the problems that the bank still has to address and we'll see whether that happens under Scharf and how quickly it happens if it does Emily flutter covers Wells Fargo for The New York Times thanks Emily thank you willing.

Wells Fargo chooses BNY Mellon's Scharf as third CEO in three years
"All right. Wells Fargo they finally got a new boss is a long time coming it is been friends of mine and we know that to be true for Hannah Levitt she's finance reporter tracking the company for Bloomberg she's in a Bloomberg interactive record studio very fortunate to get some time with you today because it's been a busy one to break it all down Charlie Scharf getting the nod a big paycheck break this down for us what we had and we finally get to this guy to leave the company hi so thanks for having me the day has come is it true that from what I understand that for months she would wake up and you're like god I wonder who's going to run she was calling source waking up in color and I have a dream that there's someone I'd like a Sunday I have a dream it's Tuesday Monday I have a thing that's Tuesday you woke up you like a like a like my whole ache yes so the day has come six month is actually one day short of six months wow it's kind of funny yeah but so Charlie Scharf who has most recently been running BNY Mellon your New York is taking the top job over at Wells Fargo it's the it's the outside higher that it you know and people were listing sharp as a dream candidate from. even the time before former CEO Tim some step down so it's definitely when you know someone said to me during the process the stock's gonna move five up five percentage points either way and it's it's right now up more than four percent so I think that the market clearly likes the idea first choice for wells you know it it he definitely was among the top people who were of any doing the job from New York which is definitely really interesting because wells Fargo's not based in New York right good about what. yeah sorry but not only not based in New York but they have substantial offices in other cities yes their big you know they're they're based in San Francisco they have there what I would what I refer to as H. U. two in Charlotte where they actually have more employees there than they do in Sam Cisco that's a holdover from my copay which they bought during the crisis and there's a few tubs and like the morning and it's all over the country yeah Phoenix they have a big presence as well I was talking to a former Wells guy this morning and sort of breaking down this idea of New York in a we don't have to dwell forever on it but it does feel notable enemy I think city even put out a note essentially saying this is gonna wear yeah well it for for sharp specifically it's definitely a big issue he was running these on the west coast and he came back to New York and part of the caucus you know at the. the huge part the calculus there was being in New York right from where he lived for his family lived at cetera so you know that could have been the thing for him that they needed to just okay and and if you're the Wells Fargo CEO you really are traveling all over the country all the places we just mentioned so there's a certain element of of that but I do wonder about because. a big part of this Wells Fargo story is. the culture that has existed for a long time at this company Tim Sloan who had been a Wells Fargo right there for a long time when he was named CEO are there a lot of questions that is this what we need you know to kind of bring Wells Fargo around it can it be an inside guy doesn't need to be somebody from the outside so I do wonder what kind of message that sends to employees at home base and the headquarters when you kind of have your CEO not right they bring in New Yorker CEO yeah that's a good question that's definitely something that I'll still be paying attention to as it unfolds he starts he doesn't start until October twenty first so we have a little bit short of a month until you actually get started but that'll definitely be something that I'm keeping an eye on so remind us why this was probably a pretty tough job to fill he's got a full plate for sure when he starts from what you can tell from talking to people what's the number one thing he has to solve out of the gate so the number one thing would be the regulatory issues for sure in Wells Fargo has had a ton of regulatory problems in the past three years after the fake accounts scandal erupted in twenty sixteen and then you know that led to the CEO at the time down some stepping down and then you know two and a half years later CEO Tim Sloan stepped down and they have fourteen outstanding consent orders which is a lot with various regulators they have an asset cap so they actually can't grow up beyond their size at the end of twenty seventeen the fed has that one in place and you know it's been such a problem that the see see the office of the comptroller currency had veto power over this appointment so it's really also mostly an actual crisis stuff right yeah I know the approval what I do wonder too is how much does sort of have to clean house and I know that they've been bringing in executives a lot of them from JP Morgan yeah. I wonder how much of that has to be a part of it we can expect that going forward yeah they really been going for that that JP Morgan Jamie Dimon dust so even you know what server top the bank they've they've gone even further in that direction but you know it's interesting Betsy do because the chair of the board said today on the call and and executives that wasn't in things throughout that a lot of the changes that they felt have been made have been the changes the correction just to make and they they made progress but you know surf is going to come in and he hasn't worked at the company for the past three years in the past thirty years like a lot of executives who are there so he'll have his own ideas about. to what extent they clean house and and what's left to do so that will also be the point watch thirty second thought how much discipline minister across Wall Street that there was a chance to have finally a woman read leading a money center bank and didn't happen another date yeah I mean that's that's also something of high interest rates like Wells Fargo has this rare opportunity where they can go out to market and and get anyone and and it's another white male just like as we saw boil over to Congress but you did a lot of reporting basically that said there are a number of women who were at least interviewed for this job and maybe even offered it yes I would not go so far as to say offered it but interview but that yeah that they were definitely in that was for sure priority you know for them and for people in on on all sides of this that is definitely something of interest but I think you know when you when you get someone like Charlie yeah it's like you go Charlie right he's a series banker that's for sure well he's got a full plate as we set him eleven finance reporter for Bloomberg they last so much talent at all they're still there and it makes me a little
