Chris Kohls, AKA Mr. Reagan, Pays Homage to 'Gutsy' Hillary Clinton

"A recent video about C, mister Reagan, tell us about her performance on the view. Why doesn't she just go off and play with her grandchildren or murder somebody else as it is alleged? I mean, seriously. You know, it's funny that you happen to go hang out with the firemen over there in New York because Hillary rodham Clinton also went and hung out with the ladies of the fire department there in New York. I don't know if you're aware of that. I am not. I am not do tell. Yeah, yeah, and because they did this show for, I believe it was for Hulu called gutsy. I don't know, Apple TV, I believe. Called gutsy. Which is not, I'm sorry. Let me just be rude here in misogynistic. Not a good title for a TV show hosted by Hillary Clinton. You concur. I absolutely concur. I bet you've been writing the coattails of Bill Clinton for her entire career, essentially, being essentially gifted political positions her entire adult life. So did you actually watch this show that you said she went to visit some I'm going to, I'm going to watch it. I'm going to have to get drunk or something. I'm not really sure. Get a bottle of aard bag scotch or something and just sit there and watch. But no, so she says on the view. She says that they say, what's the gutsiest thing that you've done? And she says, well, doing the show was really gutsy because, you know, we did all these crazy things. She goes, you know, I learned to tango. I'm like, okay, I don't know if that's gutsy, but all right, what else? She's like, oh, we made acorn soup. Hang on, hang on. No, no. This is a mister pagan satire skit. She didn't say. She didn't say dancing the tango and making acorn soup is gutsy. Are you joshing me? Is it April 1st? If you don't want to watch the actual view episode, watch my take on it. It's hilarious. And

The Scientific Basis for a Life of Purpose With Dr. Stephen Iacoboni

"I'm talking to doctor Stephen Jacob boni, who is the author of a brand new book called telos, the scientific basis for life of purpose and doctor Jacobo. You were just talking about the meaning of the word tell us and how everywhere we look in nature, we see that things are designed for a purpose or I guess the other word for that is an end. Everything has an end. There are different ways the words can be used, but that's what the word tell us means. Right, it is, it means the end, as it was intended. In other words, even though Christ was 300 years away from appearing on earth at the time of Aristotle, an Aristotle was mostly ideas, he realized that the world was made of things living things who were designed with everything about them for a purpose. So if you look at your dog or you look at a horse and whiskers and eyelids and their ears have a funnel, here's the way they are because it funnels the sound in. And height lids are there to keep things from getting in your eyes. And he, as a pure biologist, realized these things didn't happen by accident, nature or whatever you want to call it, designed life so that the end would come out the way it was supposed to. So as St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas said, as the acorn becomes a tree and not a bush or a shrub, everything is comes out as it intended. So tea those means to end as it was intended. And the importance of that is that, as you know, and you point out in your book, the scientific atheism argument is things appear attended, like the sun appears to go around the earth, but the science really says that everything on earth, including our lives, is an accident. There is no God, and we aren't just alone in the universe. That's the most devastating lie tiled by anybody at any time. And it is destroying our culture.

Can Elon Musk Prove Twitter Experienced a "Material Adverse Change"?

"Back to what Musk is going to allege. What I suspect he's going to allege. He's going to say this is a material adverse effect in terms of the stock price. I don't think that gets him anywhere. I really don't, because I think that, look, you know, the Delaware court's going to say, so what? Like stock prices go up and down every day. You thought it was worth this? That's your problem. But what he might try and allege is that the business itself has been badly damaged because the accounts they're not real. But again, the court comes back and says, well, how is that affected earnings? So the only time the only time in history that the Delaware court has ever said, okay, well, this deal doesn't have to go through because of a material adverse change was back in 2018, 2017. It was a company called acorn pharmaceuticals, and basically the thing just imploded, like days after the merger agreement was signed. And when you look at what happened with the EBITDA, it dropped first by 86%, then its EPS fell by a 105% and a 113% and there was a real concern about the authenticity of some of its filings, which interestingly skadden has a good article on. So these two aren't related, but I just think it's interesting that I'm going to quote for you from a skadden arps piece where they're writing about the acorn situation and how that deal imploded. And they said it was in part because this pharmaceutical company acorn was confronted with serious pervasive data integrity issues, which included submitting falsified product data to the Food and Drug Administration. Again, reading from the scan arps piece, they wrote according to the court acorn subsequently misled the FDA meetings, it sought about data integrity issues. In addition, the court found that acorns business fell off a cliff two days after its stockholders approved the merger, the initial revenue miss was down 25% and of course the 105%, the 113% declines that I just mentioned to you. So the Delaware court said, okay, well, you know what? This isn't the business you thought it was going to be. They didn't represent things. As they should have to the FDA and the business imploded. So this may be the argument here for Elon Musk. He'll say, well, you didn't properly account for your bots and your spam and your business is suffering because just check out the stock price.

"Hello everybody to the special episode of the Charlie Kirk show, with us right now is my pastor, rob McCoy. Rob, welcome back. Thanks, buddy. And then joining us remotely is Bryce ceti, the great Bryce, and Bryce, I don't know if you've ever been on our program. So welcome to our not yet. So here we go. Thank you. And Steve Schneider, who is a great American, and we're honored to have all of you guys and kind of talk about something important that is local in our focus, but national in nature. Absolutely. And so however you guys want to take it, rob, do you want to start? And then we can kind of, let me do my best to frame it. And then I know Jason Steve will be able to add all kinds of insight to it. In our community, the kineto unified school districts, there's two newspapers in the Canelo valley where I reside. And as this Bryce and Steve, these two newspapers, one is the guardian, the other, is the acorn. The guardian did a paper, did an article called third grade teacher promotes gender confusion in the classroom. And it was an article writing on behalf of Steve Schneider, who's on the program with us. Who was standing in defense of his third great daughter, who was told by the teacher to now these are the new pronouns of this fellow student in your class, and this is a book I want to read to you on transgender. And then expose the children to a video without parental permission. Steve took issue with at the kineto guardian on his behalf, wrote a very, very clear and concise article, everything and it was true. Good reporting, the acorn, which is a defender of what I would say that California teachers association and the district itself took great offense to it. Then the news channels came out CBS. They did a whole thing on it. And then there was graffiti at that elementary school and they blamed Steve Schneider for it. The police came to his house. He'll tell you more about that. He wasn't even there, so it was crazy.

"Give you a couple of quick moments. So for people who use our app and as you know, we have four and a half million plus customers that do use our app in the U.S., which is great. And we're really helping those people have exposure and think about the long-term investment opportunities for stocks and bonds. And what we've done is we've enabled a fairly seamless process for people to really invest three ways. They can use roundups off of a spend card. They could set recurring investments on a daily weekly monthly basis and certainly we enable one time investments. People come to us for education, the simplicity, the brand safety, the way we put risk and analyzing risk for people front and center so that if you're comfortable with how they're thinking about the investments for the long term and we've tried to take those experiences and that workflow and put our brand behind also introducing new asset classes as it makes sense. You did reference the fact that there were Bitcoin ETFs that launched a sort of middle end of last year. And we've enabled one of those into our app at the end of March for our customers. And it works similarly the same way you would have exposure to, let's say, the S&P 500. Or to a 5 year duration of a bond portfolio, whether you're investing daily, weekly monthly or through roundups, those monies also go into having Bitcoin exposure. We looked at it from a portfolio construction, my team did a lot of the risk analysis on how volatile is Bitcoin relative to the other assets. How to think about the correlation amongst Bitcoin relative to the other assets. And what would be the optimal exposure level given those dynamics to make it a safe way and an acorn branded way to invest in having Bitcoin exposure. And so it seamless for people. They have an opportunity to make that choice themselves to opt in. If they wanted to include that in a portfolio. And then depending on what their risk suitability is, which they've already given us that information based on the questions and events, we've automatically allocated to their portfolio, the right percentage for them. And that's really the path that we took, it's the beginning of us moving into having some crypto opportunities for our customers. And I'm sure we'll get into it, but we'll continue to evaluate that on a go forward basis as well. I like the educational aspect and certainly a lot of first time investors and actually that was myself included several years back. I wanted to do this episode for people listening who may just tune in just to kind of crypto curious, but they haven't really bought any crypto of their own. Because this seems like a really a really good way to get involved. Yeah, I just encourage people just to check it out. I'm not obviously what we're talking to you, Seth. But it's not sponsored in any way. I've just used it for a long time and really enjoy it. And you mentioned the volatility of Bitcoin, which is something that is pretty central to a lot of traditional investors, a lot of older folks I speak to. They would kind of warn me against Bitcoin several years ago, but they've since kind of changed their opinion on it. But I always kind of view it. It's more of a long-term savings or investment strategy. I mean, there's definitely those listening who like to try to get in daily and catch the waves. But I've been following the chart for several years and there's just tremendous growth.

"Kirk show with us today as someone who has taught me more than anyone else in the last year and a half. I have listened to hundreds of hours of his lectures and read many of his books and honored to have him on the show today. The president of hillsdale college, where we have a great partnership together, Charlie for hillsdale dot com, doctor Arne, honored to have you with us today. It's great to be with you. I've become a great admirer of Charlie Kirk. Thank you. And you've taught me quite a lot. And I tell everyone that your Aristotle course really touched me and strengthened my beliefs in a variety of ways. So doctor an I want to start with this open question and we see this in the news lately of what is education. What is the purpose of education? I see a lot of people kind of fumble in that recently. Even people on the center right that would call themselves conservatives. People that say, well, we got to teach people how to think, not what to think or we gotta listen to kids and give them what they want. What is the purpose of education? That's not how to think about what to think. If you just think about it for a minute, it's silly, right? Do we want to raise them up to think that the moon is made out of green cheese? So the point is, if you step back from our mechanistic engineering society, which touches across the political spectrum, by the way, education is not like making anything. It's like helping something to grow. But the growth is in the thing, right? You can plan an acorn all day long and you'll never get a pine tree out of it, right? No matter how you cultivate it. So education is growth. Now, you know, the Latin word education means to lead forth educator and that raises the question which way is fourth. And that means, you know, the Bible says, train up a child and the way he should go. We should have the same thing is the way he wants to go in all cases, but of course people do want to grow to be fully what they

"acorn" Discussed on Laura Erickson's For the Birds Podcast

"For many decades long term research projects studying birds like the acorn woodpecker involved marking individual banded birds with uniquely colored leg bands or wing tags and spending many hours in the field observing their activities new high-tech equipment from rfid tags. Two satellite transmitters of increasingly tinier sizes are allowing researchers to get data on many more individual birds. Twenty four seven even when that one member of the research team is anywhere near newer less expensive ways of testing bird. Dna have taken the guesswork out of determining paternity and then the case of acorn woodpeckers and other species in which multiple female share a nest maternity as well now thanks to two projects led by haas bar bay of the smithsonian national museum of natural history one published last year and another published just last month in current biology. We know a lot more. About the acorn woodpeckers unique mating system and also about how territory oh battles between flocks attract non-participating acorn woodpeckers as spectators. It's long been assumed that. For species in which the male and female parents both make fairly equal contributions to raising their young monogamous pairs that defend a territory not sharing resources with neighboring. Birds are more successful than polygamous species in which males shared their territory with other males. But the two thousand twenty one smithsonian project found that those male acorn woodpeckers that breed polygamous lii in duos or trios of males each fathered more offspring than males breeding alone with a single female females did not get the same benefit co breeding duos of females produce the same number of offspring as the females that coupled up but female trios left behind fewer offspring than either monogamous females or females breeding in duos. Acorn woodpeckers may provide an exceptional example of cooperation in their mate and nest. Chairing but they have a violent bloodthirsty side to is research published year. By the same team led by barbie proved a nesting groups territory. Averages fifteen acres with one or more granaries ownership is stable. Until there's a death. In the flack if a breeding female dies for example coalitions of non breeding helper females from other flax will battle with the breeding and non breeding females from the first flock. Trying to take over from the home owning females invading females may return day after day from their own territory. The term battle is not an exaggeration. Barbay said we've seen birds with eyes gouged out wings broken bloody feathers and birds that fell to the ground fighting each other. Thanks to the rfid chips which tirelessly record birds every time they appeared near the rfid readers. We know that some tagged individuals fought for ten hours at a stretch for four consecutive days. Although a great many birds in the vicinity have been tagged. One long-lasting battle ended up being won by an unmarked coalition of females. No one knows exactly. How acord woodpeckers get the word out but soon after death occurs invaders arrive and within an hour after the first blows birds from other flocks arrive to watch. They may travel more than two miles and spend a full hour watching these battles spending so much time attending these fights just to observe must have some value. These birds would normally be spending those hours feeding young searching out more acorns for their granaries and defending their own territories to prevent the theft of acorns. Working out the evolutionary advantages for watching other birds. Fighting is tricky. And we can't help. But wonder whether the impulse for acorn woodpeckers to observe other flocks engaging in these fights is comparable to the impulse of people spending a significant amount of time observing worldwide wrestling or the crazier reality tv shows. But i guess it's nice to know that however members of our species do spend time watching spectators sports they have a counterpart in the world of birds. Maybe there really is nothing new under the sun. I'm laura ericsson speaking for the birds..

"acorn" Discussed on Laura Erickson's For the Birds Podcast

"Less steer story published a book of mine. The love lives of birds which we highlighted thirty five species and their different approaches to acquiring territory and mating some species swans cranes crows and many jase for example famously mate for life and stay together throughout the year whether they migrate away from their territory or not. Some such as loons and eagles don't maintain the year round bond but return to the exact same territory each spring ending up with the same mate year after year as long as that mate also returns many songbirds commit to a mate for a single season but the following year are as likely to subtle in with another bird as with that former mate. Some such as house runs stick with a mate to raise one batch of babies but then both birds very often find other mates if they want to produce subsequent brutes that same season some for gia temporary bond for just part of the nesting cycle for example. Mailer drake's day with the hens after courtship. Only through the time the females build nests and lay their large clutches of one egg a day for a couple of weeks when females starts incubating those eggs and loses interest in sex. Her mate is out of their grouse. Turkeys would cox and hummingbirds separate the act of mating from nesting and raising young males mate. With as many females as they can attract forming no discernible pair bond. With any of them. There seemed to be almost as many mating and territorial strategies as there are birds species and so covering just thirty five species barely scratched the surface. That's less than five percent of the more than seven hundred species that breed in north america and less than a third of one percent of the roughly ten thousand bird species in the world. I could have written huge chapters about a lot of other birds and felt particularly bad. Leaving out one fascinating species the acorn woodpecker several researchers i know including once i worked with the cornell lab of ornithology focused years of research on this amazing bird i saw my first acorn woodpecker on mount lemmon in arizona on april seventh nineteen eighty two and even before i got a glimpse of the birds themselves. I was gobsmacked by what they had done. One entire side of a log cabin where we stayed was riddled with hundreds. Maybe thousands of holes virtually every one stuffed with a single acord. I knew from my reading. That acorn woodpeckers made these granaries but had no idea they could be so huge story so very many acords. The granaries are constructed by family groups of a dozen or more individuals. Who stored the acorns. Communally and cooperatively raise the young living up to their name and all the work involved in building stuffing and maintaining those granaries. Acorn woodpeckers do eat a lot of acorns especially in winter but overall their diet a surprisingly varied they glean and dig out insects from trees. As other woodpeckers. Do catch flying insects on the wing. Dig out sap wells to feed like sap suckers eat flower. Nectar take small lizards baby birds and eggs and eat some fruit and seeds. We know from decades of long term studies of marked birds that acorn woodpeckers have an unusual mating system called opportunistic polly gyn andry within a group one to eight males compete for matings with one to four females lay their eggs in the same nest cavity the males and females share incubating duties in addition to these core breeding individuals can be one to ten nine breeding. Helpers that assist the breeders and feeding nestle ngs as with many other birds such as crows and florida scrub jays in which one or more individuals helped nesting pairs raise their young helpers at acorn woodpecker nests tend to be offspring fledged by the group in prior years non breeding acorn. Woodpecker helpers may be as old as five years old the cohort of males in a group tend to be related to one another and the cohort of females tend to be related to one another but the males and females tend not to be related to one another. Yep that's one heck of a unique mating system. I'm laura ericsson speaking for the birds..

My father my sister. My brother-in-law are all either physician or health services. Researchers are both could imagine that are thanksgiving discussion. They're pretty much heated. You know conversation over the state of health policy. Today you know type of my family. I had the opportunity to see across the healthcare system in in various roles over the last ten twelve years now and and kind of had a bite in in consulting in pharma in the government space in academia and. I think the thing that that keeps me going is that have been fortunate to be part of you. Know what. I what. I call these. The health dare movement and be they're gonna pivotal changes or sort of tectonic shifts in our healthcare system. I'm gonna happen within the last decade and kind of fundamentally transform the industry but also kind of thinking about how the healthcare system as a whole as evolving so some of the stuff that you you mentioned in my bio whether it was working on the affordable care act which was such a you know important piece of legislation or being part of of some of these larger data and technology movements even through the lens of the government big things that happened over the last several years and then more recently you know when i was at merck I had a chance to better understand what's commonly called. now it's real world data. Which is everything happening. Outside of data and clinical trials. And could that tie into improving economics research within that company. And i guess my most recent inflate of experiences are really pushing towards. How do you to move the needle in pharma research and development. And how do you better understand. Where data science and technology intersect with that changing space. So the the totality of everything. If you think about how interconnected the system is having those experiences. I have kind of shaped You know my my thinking now and really to where we are today. So that's been fun intents and kind of an inspirational experience to date for me.

"The ocean that's reporter khloe veldman even with a couple of friends so tough khloe. Sorry tough katrina. What's a tough assignment. I eat always does all the time. But i had actually never tried this type. It's called an olympia oyster or ali for short. Oh i've never heard of that kind. Are they like well. They're much smaller than the oysters. Most of us in the bay area a familiar with they taste kind of coppery and pungent and this special because they are native to the san francisco bay. But the oysters you just heard me and my friend guzzling actually harvested from our bay scientists. Say it's still too polluted from agricultural runoff and other chemicals like mercury instead. These came from a farm in washington state. However for thousands of years the olympia grew locally in vast numbers three generations back would be a safe to say that our family last word gathering oysters from the bayshore east bay alone chef and food activist vincent medina says the only was a dietary staple for many local tribes including his own ancestors in raw they would also be cooked in earth ovens underneath the ground and with of sea lettuces and different types of seaweed acorn sue vicious meals matthew buca is an environmental historian and has written a book all about the bays voice to full past. He says olympia oysters. All along the west coast stretching from alaska all the way down into central mexico all these perfectly adapted to survive the cold waters of san francisco bay but they need rocky surfaces to grow on matthew says by the mid eighteen hundreds thousands of years of slow sea level rise and melting sierra. Glaciers made the bay muddier. And that's bad for all these. They were struggling. Basically then the gold rush hit and brought thousands of golden protein hungry settlers. It didn't take long for them to destroy the local population forcing oystermen to look further afield. All the estuaries of the west coast are essentially mind for there to satisfy this endless demand from san francisco. Matthew says soon even those far-flung habitats had been plundered. There were relatively few all east left on the entire west coast but there was still a demand for them. So entrepreneurs took to importing non native varieties from the east coast. You can capture baby. Easter's barrel them up. Put them on. Board schooners later on board unrefrigerated train cars ship them across the entire united states and then they would be placed into san francisco. Bay on privately owned tied lands and harvested as crop demand for always was so high pirates frequently raided the beds bay area native. Jack london tells us about it in his autobiographical novel. John barley corn the winds of adventure blew the oyster pirates. Loops up and down san francisco bay. Before london became famous writer. he was among other things. An infamous oyster pirate every raid on. An- bed was a felony. The ofa glamorized his experience stealing oysters from the bay by night and selling them in the oakland markets the next morning in several literary works and behind it all behind all of me with you. A bubble whispered romance adventure but even the imported oysters didn't survive in the san francisco. Bay for long the already muddy waters were made worse by mining in the sierra during the gold rushes. This turned up more modern sanders sweat downriver. So the san francisco bay historian matthew book says grow moved their atlantic choices to the south bay when mantras less of a problem but heavy industry and human sewage polluted. The bay waters a rash of deaths connected to eating contaminated puts an end to the san francisco bay oyster industry so by the early twentieth century. There are plenty of oyster bay but the people eating them are no longer so sure if this is the right. Food in the nineteen thirties bombing resumed in the clean waters of drake's in somalia's base north of san francisco but the focus especially after world. War two was on pacific oyster varieties from japan. Interesting cultivating the native olympia oyster as a food source dwindled. It still hasn't really come back. So will we ever be able to eat the native only ounce of the bay again even though no always does a grown in san francisco bay food there are efforts to bring them back to help restore the based delicate ecosystem and ecologists have focused on the native. Only that once thrived here sickle spot. Oh you been question. Scott joseph fletcher at the bay natives. Plant nursery in the bayview to interview linda hunter. She's the founder and director of the wild oyster project. Oysters have so many wonderful benefits. Linda tells us does have superpowers. So one grown oyster can filter fifty gallons of water a day. Oysters helped maintain the balance of marine ecosystem but reducing algae and sediment that can contribute to low oxygen levels causing other marine life to die. There's also the fact that oysters provide have attacked for other critters we as cluster on discarded shells rocks peers and heart submerged surfaces. They fuse together. As they grow forming these rock like reefs that make ideal homes for other marine animals. Implants into says the protect coastal lands by reducing the impacts of storm wife's. It's been proven that voice to rapes attenuate. The effects of rising tides caused by the wild oyster projects is trying to rebuild these reefs. That works starts with collecting discarded oyster shells from local restaurants and piling them. Up part sites like bay natives shows in. Linda says eventually these shells will be built into reefs unplaced in the bay. The idea is for these manmade reefs to attract native voices and as a result other wildlife like ill gross salmon crabs egrets says. They've already installed reefs near alameda. Point pinot the first to reflect the at point panel in richmond. I got a phone call from a fisherman who is complaining that his fishing line had been snagged on one of our reef balls. And i said Have you noticed more fish. And he said yes. I have thank you very much. But before they can be turned into reefs. The oyster shells needs to be clete. And that's where the chickens come in. They natives is home to about two dozen chickens. This is the chicken launch. There's not chickens. you have to clean the shell. Otherwise they get stinky and they attract kinds of critters. Should we feed the ins- off the shelves at cleaned laid out in the sun and several years later gobi ready to use annoy staff. This curing process helps kill any harmful bacteria and houghton's the shells. We have plenty of show. We have over ten thousand times here. Linda tells joseph.

Investing app is launched Won't watch twenty fifteen and it was designed to be for to get investing for the people it's to democratize investing where there's no fees and it's been a hit with millennials that makes primarily of its Accusers are millennials. Who want to either. Learn how to invest. A word tried different than try to put their money in different stocks. It's it's become very big. Especially has we all become aware of with the sub. Reddit wall street bets right before this all hit of the last week or two or three quarter note. That robin hood had become extremely popular over really the last year during the coronavirus lockdown right with the law people at home i'll folks with disposable income younger folks and not much also do investing and trading through robin hood had been a avenue new trend. So i'm curious. How robin hood works differently than some of these other services. Because we've got e-trade td ameritrade a number of these brokerage firms that also allow for trades. How does robinhood sets off apart. What one of the big reasons why would sits at apart as well as being a big reason why it's popular with wall street. Bits is that it allows for all these extra options when it comes to trading sucks it allows you to do put all these terms that are essentially bet hence the reason why wall street bets likes it so much because you could go wit put in a couple of hundred bucks and you could actually take some money out on margin and that means you borrow the money so say can make these bets on stocks and a lot of other apps. Don't do that. There's a acorns and s-o-f-i and there's all these other investing apps that do allied to buy shares and a do it for free like robin hood but need they don't let you do all these different fats. Different options that you can actually make really big money very quickly. And that's why with wall street beds. It's become such a big deal there because that's kind of they created this environment where you say. Hey i'm going to spend. I just got a i just got my student loans and i'm gonna put it all on apple and they just cheer you on. Just say yeah do it and try to make a lot of money. Our try to lose a lot of money. They tell you on that you lose money. So that's why they robinhood because you can't really do these kind of bits and a at these other apps or even like your bank your baked me let you do different kinds of investing. But it doesn't you all the very intense and very risky but also big returns bets like Robinhood does return a really big losses. There's a reason. Why a number of these investment mechanisms think things like investing in puts and stock options. Though those are there's a huge potential for losses with this kind of investing a traditionally. This been really been reserved for more traditional dusters. That's part of the reason why it's courted. Some controversy right like this is a company that even before all the game stop. Hoopla has been accompanying that has caused some controversy and some criticism for the way that it's gamified the investment process. Yes especially last year. there was a bug that happened last year over a it was kind of a between last year before where people were able to deposit two thousand dollars and they were able to borrow essentially infinite amount of money from robin hood. So you were having these young guys in their early twenties. Maybe like the late teens. Who were all of a sudden pudding in these Short says these other options for stocks and within seconds they were down fifty thousand dollars eighty thousand dollars and they all kind of cheered for that though. So it's it that became a. That's when robin hood really got a lot of people's Because all of a sudden these kids were losing out on big money and they were. You know there were some people that I believe there was at least one who took their life Because of it it is. It's a risk that you're putting in the hands of people that can't even drink yet and they're being cheered on by other people that are saying. Hey if you do this you could make a lot of money. Quick and things get on head

GameStop and the Short Squeeze

"Okay stacey so when you imagine that we are squirrels okay okay. An through the fall you being very responsible squirrel have been squirreling away loads of nuts for the winter. Okay all right now. I have to but i've also been keeping an eye on the weather and i'm pretty convinced that there's gonna be a nut surplus this winter and there's gonna be a lot of nuts on the market this would be the squirrel nut market precisely. Okay okay not all the other. Squirrels are responsible as you and me a lot of them. Leave it to the last minute to stock up and you end up with these shortages and consequently these very long lines at the nut highs. I think we're definitely already there. I think there are long lines at the house batting bludger with me like i say i think there's going to be a surplus of nuts this year right for whatever reason and that means i think prices are going to fall and i want to bet on that price movement which means that i won't to short the market so you're going to bet against the market for nuts as a squirrel that is exactly right. That literally sounds nets me all right so right now mixed fancy unsalted nuts. Ten bucks can't squirrels. Net of choice. Fancy unsalted nuts. Okay and i think the price of the of that collection of nuts is going to go lower and so to set up my short. The first thing that i do is go to someone who's got a load of nuts and is willing to lend me a pint or two and that person is you okay so now you are wanting to borrow my nuts that i saved. That's right and as a little fee to sweetened things. I'll give you an acorn all right okay. I'm in. I'm in so let's start with a one point bag just to see. Okay all right all right all right now. I take that point of nuts and i go to the market and sell it for ten dollars right which leaves me with a nice crisp ten dollar note and then we wait for a day or two and we wait look at that. The prices fallen Not sir eight dollars a pint okay. So you sold a pound of nuts for ten bucks and now they're worth eight bucks. That's right so i'm going to buy them back at that rate right but by them for eight dollars and of course it means i get some change from my ten dollar note. Yes you're two dollars in the black. That's exactly right so now. I've got that pint of knots which i returned to you as promised excellence and i've got two dollars of my own which i get to keep okay. So that is a successful short. That is a successful short. Okay that is great but what happens if the price goes in the other direction. Let's say you are wrong about the value of nuts this winter. Maybe there's a supply shortage price of nuts goes through the roof and suddenly like let's say all of a sudden it's like twelve dollars a pound of nuts if gustav twelve dollars out of luck right because i have to. I've got to get those nuts back to give them back to you. So i'm going to dig in my own pockets for those two dollars to make twelve dollars to get your nuts back and that means i'm going to take a two dollar loss at the whim of supply and demand except the sometimes it's not the law of supply and demand that drives the market. I mean take. This company game celebrate. This is a company that has a bunch of brick and mortar stores that sells video and computer games. It's like it's been it's under a lot of pressure like a lot of other retailers are right now which is probably why you know. Analysts have been a little skeptical about the price of its stock. Exactly supply and demand was not what drove that price up. What happened was he had a bunch of people who got together in chatrooms and these are like a lot of the day. Traders now the traditional short-selling squirrels but like another group. No or even the regular trading. So we don't know who these people are. They hang out and chat rooms and they call themselves. Things spelt pants and proto molecular. I mean we don't know who they are they could be chipmunks so basically there is sort of the traders and you can kind of rely on what they're doing and why they're trying to anticipate the prices of stocks and other things going down and then you have this other group and we're not sure who they are or what they want. Well i think a lot of them wanna make money right. And i think a lot of them. Want to put the screws to shortsellers. They just hate shortsellers. They hate and shortsellers have been betting for some time. That game stop. Stock will drop. But there's also kind of a populist thing happening here with a lot of these traitors judging by the reddit threads that they just wanna poke in middle finger at wall street. They're not the first. They're not the first and then of course all these other people who are just trading for kicks right. I mean they see the price of the stocks go up and in many cases they wanna be part of that and some of them even want to buy it the high take they want those bragging rights and what they do is to start this kind of frenzy. They spread rumors in these chatrooms. They get all fired up. And then they wait till the stock pumps and then they're also chasing it upwards and onwards and upwards which brings us to the short squeeze yes the short squeeze. What is the short squeeze. Yeah you see so when the price surges like this it means for shortsellers like me because we remember have to buy back the stalker nuts or whatever it is that we've sold in order to return them to the people who lead them to us to you me right so when we start to see prices going up and up and up frankly we start to panic right because you are going further and further into the red exactly right. Nah we're all rushing into the market to buy stock around not so whatever before the price gets too high and wipes a site and we're all doing it at the same time. Which of course drives the price even higher. All these people buying your literally being squeezed. You are literally being squeezed. I mean imagine this like a hole in a trunk and you call one hundred short-selling squirrels rushing to get through the whole stale at the same time. While the whole is getting smaller bloodbath.

LinkedIn Wants to Help You Find a Transferable Career

"Lincoln has built. Its following of more than seven hundred million people by promising to help you find a job now at wants to help you find a new and totally different career. With millions of americans and employed right now an entire laid flat by the pandemic. It's undeniably difficult for many people find new jobs without changing roles and industries. The first challenges identifying your transferable skills. That advice is as old as the hills. The much tougher challenges to figure out how to apply transferable skills in jobs in industries. You may never have considered. That's where linked ends new career explorer to comes in if flip typical job searching on its head rather than searching for a particular job say operations manager you enter one of your most recent titles by mining linked ends. Massive data set the to identify multiple skills. You probably already have then. It suggests other roles where those skills overlap according to a company blog. Post tool references. Thirty six thousand career skills and six thousand job. Titles results are matched up by the percentage of skills that can transfer for instance enter the job of co founder. And you'll see that eighty percent of your skills are also used by board members. The example linked in uses is more common an out of work food server. It turns out a waiter or waitress. Typically has more than seventy percent of the skills needed to succeed in customer service role. The good news linked and also identifies high demand jobs as it happens. Customer service specialists or at the top of that list. Career explore then identifies open jobs in that new career in a third column. The tool suggest skills. You may need to build to help make the leap not. Surprisingly it directs you. To linked learning courses offering such clear direction toward a new career makes a lot of sense more than forty five percent of people never explore career change. Because they don't know where to start. According to a survey of two thousand unemployed professionals commissioned by linked in paul heads up economic policy research at linked and he told the new york times many members didn't necessarily know what job transitions were available to them. Moreover about a third of the survey respondents said they felt unqualified for other industries had no connections. There were didn't know how their skills translated the times reported linked in made the new tool available late last month. In beta to try it out navigate to opportunity dot linked in dot com. It's free not part of lincoln's premium subscription which ranges from thirty dollars to one hundred twenty dollars a month with more and more people using linked in as the pandemic continues to take a toll on the economy the platforms revenues are way up sixteen percent over the same quarter last year. But most of that growth is coming from lincoln's advertising business. not it's talent solutions which includes recruitment and job search. According to tech crunch reporter ingrid london by showing job seekers a path toward a new career and guiding them to link to ends classes the platform can build its recruitment business and it's training and education division simultaneously. London suggests although note that many of those classes are also free such a seemingly. Comprehensive system means the online job. Search business has evolved dramatically. It's far more complex and sophisticated than it was not that long ago when online platforms mainly mimicked classified ads. Like linked in smaller rivals ziprecruiter also promotes training to job seekers. Late last month ziprecruiter announced a new platform offering two hundred fifty different classes. The classes come from training companies collaborating with the company including core. Sarah skill share x. You'd acidy among others and this month ziprecruiter announced another kind of partnership altogether with financial services app acorns which helps users save and invest money. From within the acorns app users will be able to search for jobs. The job portal is made possible by ziprecruiter acorn. Ceo kerner tolsey net. The company wants to help its users. Earn more money since income shortfalls or the biggest obstacle to investing with. Us unemployment still at close to eight percent and record high. Pandemic case counts no. Recruitment executive says job. Hunting is easy but they do still see quite a bit of hiring forty million people search for jobs on lincoln weekly and three people get hired every minute company officials claim so for the unemployed all is far from lost but a better more comprehensive job search plan complete with training and a good dose of imagination about alternative careers should make a very big difference

Acorn Woodpeckers Fight Long Bloody Territorial Wars

"What you're hearing is worth. Woodpeckers a species called acorn packers. The birds fight long bloody battles over access to trees where these woodpeckers nest and store their food. You guessed it Acorns, the abilities, giant Ligon grannies, and these are. Basically on storage structures, but the store thousands of ACORNS every fall Sarah's with the Smithsonian national, Museum of Natural History in Bark and dead bars of trees they make individual holes in which the store one garnered a time and Some GRANITZ may have tens of thousands of holes, woodpeckers that hold high quality territory die others come to claim it for themselves. That's when the fighting began so. It's a lot of energy that they were in and that sort of as you how valuable big grants are for them. So they put in a lot of effort in the shark known for this big long term price. Bourbon is colleagues tracked acorn woodpeckers doing these power struggles the researchers observed to twelfth groups of birds sparring for a single territory typically with three or four birds pork lamb.

California. There's the big oak tree and you can just hear board calling a because they give very distinct. These WACKO WACKO calls when they're fighting each other. From. You can hear it from far away. There are so many boards calling and when you go closer, you'll see birds. Flying around pretty chaotically, there are birds washing so most. Coalitions will group together every now and then and sprouts spread out their wings on a prominent branch of the tree anshuman basically who they are that they are together but these conflicts often the violence the you see birds with big injuries in see bloodied feathers you can see is style boards with some injuries that are obviously fatal be seen boards, broken wings and also boards far the crown like fighting each other like like I often boards.

So they can do a lot of damage to each other other woodpeckers flew in from up to three kilometers away just to watch the fighting and to Glean Social Information The studies in Journal current biology.

If you often think of birds is not very intelligent animals, but we are discovering very quickly that we are not the only a busy busybody nosy super curious social animal.

These machines are generally used as web portals to the various educational resources. This is case feels like the perfect candidate for switching to open sauce. All they need is a base OS and a web browser. I don't really know how Tech decisions are made in education, but part of me wonders if we would see more open source being used if it was easier for decision-makers to understand what's available. Is there a section of the FSF primarily focused on education do they publish any material specifically for schools in higher education? If not, I think we need an open education organization or body with a website that publishes case studies on delivering education.

The things that i had trouble doing things like zoom. I couldn't use zoom because there's no build of zoom brought and so i get that rings true of a bunch of proprietary applications.

That's the most important thing to take away for each just lots of fun so it's a windows game but it works some protons i through steam and i just told steam use proton for anything that's not lennox and it works blended louis. I'm informed that the minor issues. I've encountered are issues in the game itself not that you know the export but they concept. He's it's a bit like it's an account. It assembles sixty people at the start of the game and the event is like an obstacle course race. And you're sixty jelly bean floppy characters and you'll have to race and fight your way to the end and the i like forty something. Participants qualify for the next level. So as you progress through five levels the failed of participants is reduced through ino not qualifying as a whole bunch of team games and also brilliant phone so you called it. It's an knockout life from the seventies. And i think the common parlance for is battle. Royale is what they call. It sees a battle royale. I was going to say takeshi castle. Yes well yes. I've heard people talk about that. I have no idea what that is. Because i know it's a knockout from the nineteen seventies.

Using Mint Around Tomatoes to Keep Critters Away.

"Tim Sanderson email this morning and tim has a tip and a couple of questions for you too. But the tip is he says that Like how he puts this to? Mr and Mrs Squirrel. Love. To take one bite out of his tomatoes and strawberries. Show this year he he planted cement. Around the strawberries tomatoes and for the most part they leave him alone. Have you ever heard of that Well now. I'm. GonNa have to divide my mini plant, take it up out of the window well, where I keep it control and put it near the tomatoes because boy do I need that advice I've never heard that before but if he says, it works, it works suits me. Mark. For suburban. I have worked critters than you can believe now in in in his case and mine I, am aware of the squirrels taking one bite and I don't know why they have to do that. But my nemesis is deer. I. I have a short story on that mark. It comes to the point of a friend of mine had some deer repellent in a sprayer. He said, well, if you're having trouble, let me follow you home. I'll spray your stuff for you which he did. That was the night. Since the deer came back in and eight again at being again they had come in two nights before and if the top side of the tomatoes when he sprayed them, they dutifully came in and took them down to about Puckett. Heights. And then the following night. The rascals came in and ate them down to about eighteen inches and even eight the tomatoes from around the bottom boy now. There's certain things I can't do legally. AGREEM- So the repellent didn't work. Well I'm GonNa say no either we didn't get it on at the right density thickness or you know had the dilution I should say I I don't. Although I know that I have some ornery dear moving through. So Tim. Just defy. Just to be ornery. Tim also had another tippy says a lot of times when his tomatoes just start to ripen, he'll pick them and then let them ripen off the vine and that way you know the squirrels can't and and other critters can't get to them well, and I I'm I'm big on that I've never it for that reason. But I always go out well with the first frost or certainly freeze warning in the fall I go on and pick all the tomatoes anything bigger than an acorn on up to two cutting size as it is green as it is wrapped them in newspapers stack, I'm in a open. The box and let them then. Ripened overdue time. I've had tomatoes out of my garden as latest. Thanksgiving. So yeah I'm favor that and thanks to him. That's a good recommendation I've never done it to. Stop the squirrels. I always just use language on them. Wow. Yeah. Yeah.

How Do Squirrels Organize Their Nuts?

"If you've ever watched squirrels going about their squirrel business, you may have wondered whether there's any method to their for lack of a better term not madness. It turns out there very well may be. Brain steps Christian Sager here despite how common North American tree squirrels are in many cities, neighborhoods, outdoor spaces. A big misconception exists about these little critters tree squirrels store their food tree fruit like acorns in their nests or dense to snack on all winter. Here's the thing they actually don't do that I. It's to know that both the eastern gray and eastern. Fox. Squirrels Dine on a varying menu of seeds, nuts, acorns, tree buds, berries, leaves, parts of Pine Cones, and other food some of us well, we don't like to think. About like bird eggs and nestlings and as well you know they'll have the occasional slice of found pizza. Some of that stuff they eat right away the rest they take to the nest or den for later. But when winter approaches squirrels faced with a challenge, they know instinctively that food sources will soon be scarce. So they gather all the food they'll need while also keeping themselves fed day today. That's why they're so busy in the fall when mother, nature has made sure that all the acorns have phone from the trees second. Gray and eastern. Fox squirrels are scatter hoarders, which means pretty much what it sounds like they hoard their food and then scatter it in locations where they can easily access it. That's usually close to the tree holding their nest or den, but they often expand into areas of seven acres or two point eight hectacres in rather than leaving their goods above ground where other squirrels can steal them, they bury them and this is called cashing about an inch maybe two point five centimeters under the soil and squirrels are known to crack open a nut before burying it so they can. Keep it from germinating when it comes time to eat they forage for the nuts they buried while squirrels possess a strong sense of smell which allows them to sniff out nuts from under a blanket of dirt researchers have long noticed evidence of strategic intelligence in the placement of their food. For instance, one study in two thousand eight reported that eastern gray squirrels engage in what's called deceptive cashing. They dig a hole pretend to throw the acorn in while they hold it in their mouth then it cover up the empty hole and run off to another secret stash place and they do. This it was suggested to fool other squirrels who might be watching them, but a new study from professors in the Department of Psychology at the University of California Berkeley and published in the September issue of the Journal. Royal Society of Open Science claims that tree squirrels use a pneumonic technique called spatial chunking to sort out and bury their nut scores by size type and perhaps nutritional value and taste. Now, when they're hungry later it's theorized they can remember where to find what they want in other words. The squirrels put specific nuts in similar places to help them remember what nuts were. Wear I e almonds were placed in one general area hazelnuts and another and I guess pizza would go and a third area. This pneumonic strategy has also been seen in rats. The finding researchers writing the studies show that a scatter hoarder could employ spatial chunking during cash distribution as cognitive strategy to decrease memory load and hence increase accuracy of retrieval squirrels have got a lot to think about in other words they need all the memory tricks they can get. So the next time you see a squirrel digging up not know that she might have just found the exact one she was.

Hey everybody thank you for having me. So honored to be here. It's actually like an out of body experience to hear me. Introduced as an expert about money because the people were to. If you were to ask me about money you know ten plus years ago I would have I would be like this is a dollar bill. Agnew by things. and. Change and you buy gobbled bubblegum with that and that's that's about where I am. It's so funny. Yeah I mean it's it is so. It's been a wild ride, but thank you for having me. Thanks for joining. Asked you WANNA take a couple seconds. Just tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into what you're doing and things like that. Sure So I'm originally from Carolina So super excited to be on the phone and I've kind of lived all over the place since then we won't get into that goes too far back but I started my career in writing and copywriting in particular and then got into kind of content strategy and. In different kind of PR and communications agencies and. and then I was working at an agency in New York and got introduced through a client we work. I'm sure you've heard up. To know. Kurna who's this peo now of Acorn, which is where I am now and we? Were we started working together. We work at the very beginning we work when it was a couple of buildings and a few people and and worked on the story of we work what was the brand and you know how we're going to kind of build that story of entrepreneurs and giving them a place to. Live and so a couple of years later we had both moved on from from that work, but no I had moved to acorn. which is now the country's leading financial wellness system. Kind of get all of your money needs met in one APP. And I just had my first child, my son forest and I remember I was on before he leave and I was I was on a walk with my sign in the carrier and no one I had stayed in touch and remained friends and kind of worked on side projects and one of. Called the other wall and on this walk, and he was talking about acorns and just this kind of financial crisis in this country in particular. that he had really found this to be a calling for him and would I consider joining him and trying to build this brand? and I had sworn that I was not going to go back to work full time. And I knew nothing about. Responsible Financial Living But I got really excited about the mission which is You Know T. To support the up and coming so. How can we help people really grow their financial knowledge be financially empowered and? Here we are almost five years later I did go decide to really dive into the work and figured if I'm going to be spending any time away from my kids. then this feels like A. Mission and important problems will help solve but but nowhere in like the. His personal history of Kennedy anyone along the way she's going to write. Work in finance. So I think that I think i. Saw Myself as an example of our customer, which is somebody who you know really doesn't know too much about money and but understands that it's A pretty effective means to you know a vision. or a way of life or a goal and wanted to learn more So yeah. That's kind of natural. Yes. I got three kids that happened very, very productive years. I saved. Anything. Okay yes. Yeah. My husband's exhausted. The just stay away from each other now I'm. Angry, it's been it's been really exciting and complete, and like all the things that you guys every working parent you know are going through these days but. I've been very fortunate. What's awesome. That's really cool. Gave life takes us to some very unexpected places. Though that's totally yeah. It has definitely been the case for me. Yeah. we actually use ACORNS in our family my husband started make you using it with roundup part was how we started and I thought that was so interesting and So basically, it's an the APP takes and you can correct me if I'm wrong. But this is what I understood from what he was doing at the beginning, but it takes and it links it to his account. So when he would buy something, say it costs a dollar twenty five, it would round up to two, but that seventy five cents would go into a savings account. So it just you know really small way to start start kind of saving And he is. My husband is Mr Finance. He loves money and all the things with money. So that was something that he could kind of say hey. Laura. Look. Here's an easy way that you can. Just a couple cents here and there you don't have to do you literally don't have to do anything it just adds up and then after a while we use it and like go on a nice dinner or something small like that, and now we we use it for more
