Equity Shot: The DoJ, Google, and the suit could mean for startups
"Hello and welcome to an equity shot. My name is Alex Wilhelm. I Have Danny Crichton on the phone Danny, how are you? I'm doing. All right. Alex how are you today? Better than Google who has been sued by the DOJ and eleven state aid over anticompetitive behaviour. Now, Danny we have known for a long time that this was coming. It was pre sage tr- think rather heavily I had a chance to dig into the actual filing. I have many many opinions but just going to set the ground people are tuning in and unsure of why we've reached this moment why Google and why? Now why did take me a little bit of time to find the filing I using bang and after I gave up and Use Google which may be part of the problem but let let's let's boil it down. Obviously big tech has gotten really really large over the last decade there's been increasing concerns about all the big tech companies everything from facebook to apple, Google and onwards and onwards. What are the angles that the government is trying to take on unto regulating these companies is around antitrust. In the United States the major antitrust act is the Sherman. act. That Jay filed under this morning under section two it's specifically focused on search and particularly search advertising and so. One of the things on the conference call with journalists. This morning that the wd was talking about is obviously there's a lot of concerns about social media bias. There's a lot of concerns Abou- Anti competitive practices around android and chrome, and a bunch of other issues all around tech. This lawsuit from you Jay is only focused on searching particularly search advertising and the reason. That sort of comes out of some of theories out of Yale and some other law schools which are focused on Google's consolidation of the ad market over the the arts and teen to its acquisition of Doubleclick and a bunch of other at tech companies over the years. So they've launches lawsuit they have eleven Geez all those agencies were gop, agee's and it's filed this morning. To point out that this is all about focused on search search access in some way more than I expected the circular benefits that Google gets scale as google has more data coming into view usage you can improve its products and therefore it's better than everyone else, and so the is how does Google maintain all of this market share and my read of of of the lawsuits some of the points are pretty good. Some were bad. So I think that there's a key paragraph that I went to bring us everyone listening. That I pulled out from the filing. This is from deeper into it. So if you go just meet the I won't see it but it's a good summation. So if you'll excuse my terrible reading voice here, we here's a DOJ's opinion about all the stuff google has unlawfully maintained its monopoly by implementing force in a series of exclusionary agreements with distributors or at least the last decade particularly when taken together Google exclusionary agreements have denied rivals rivals access to the most important distribution channels. In fact, Google exclusionary conduct cover almost sixty percent. Of US search queries be things like it's android device agreements. I'd add almost half of the remains are funneled through properties owned and operated directly by Google. So essentially, this boils down to Google has used commercial relationships to essentially force other companies specifically device manufacturers to pre install google software and give Google search preeminence. Google then gives manufactures often cut revenue back to make it look like a transaction but in reality if you want to run ANDROID, you have to use Google on your phone or you can't get access to anything. That you need, and then therefore you become a partner and the consumer gets Google kind of pre installed and pre defaulted. It might my issue at this is a pre default or a preset default is not a death sentence and this DOJ filing kind of treats a preset default, the end of the conversation for that consumer. So if consumers were just more active in picking what they wanted us, there won't be much of an issue here. So I'm curious about your view on their relative strengths of the different arguments as you've rhythm. To me the with nuts here is to think back to use v Microsoft you know what? Two decades ago in one was a landmark trust case particularly in tech but even just generally, it was focus on defaults of browsers within explorer explorer on windows and twenty years for we're still talking about default search engines that are browsers but through browsers, it's not even about the browser. Today. But basically, what search engine is in the bar up I, think that this is an interesting angle. Again, I think the advertising pieces much more critical. The advertising market Google is very dominant and it's network effects is very, very strong and network only exists because Google owns a frivolous vertically integrated sort of add operation right now and can really join in any part of the tier. Tracking the can't do analytics because Google owns a whole stack and so to me that has always been the strongest part the the browsers are tricky, right so so Google does pay apple for instance, billions of dollars to be in safari and particularly mobile safari. It pays Mozilla hundreds of millions of dollars of not billions of dollars to be the default search engine in Mozilla, and that's one of the largest revenue sources for the foundation and the company. Google's argument has always been consumers have choice. In fact, BING DOT COM is less characters than google dot com it takes less work to get to Bengal com a crazy as it sounds but the reality is that has this victory in search for reason, is because they own so many different components they have you know excerpts from different sites that are built around technologies that you know even here tech-rich we have integrate with Google search to ensure that our articles are given priority in those search engines so we can't just. Ignore, Google entirely, and so I i. think the argument is fairly decent. Now, the challenge here is that there's so many different angles there seventy lost his the democratic. AGEE's have their own lawsuit underway and they've said they're going to continue to do that separately from the DOJ congress's looking into second to thirty, which affects more facebook but also potentially goodwill as a sort of open harbor and forgetting the term. Now you say her safe harbor harbor it's a safe harbor I think safe harbors would have opened component they'd be lake. Exactly, the pond. Yes. The savings bond, but you know there's all these different angles I think what's interesting is the timing obviously the the DVD and his staff this morning really emphasizing this sort of the right time he said, it was after sixteen months of investigatory work on the antitrust division happened to be exactly two weeks before major US election to the reality is is as has been a discussion at the DJ. For a decade. So you know it is obviously particularly all-time. The reality is they've been doing this work since you've only years possibly even to the Bush years as well.
Trader Joe's Fall Products to (Pumpkin) Spice Up Your Shopping List
"Welcome to another of our short shopping list episodes. I'm Tara Miller director of words and phrases and clauses, and I'm Matt Sloan, the marketing product guy now just about everyone in every type of business has had to make adjustments during this pandemic but we're proud the trader Joe's has maintained a commitment to developing new products to giving you that sense of discovery on every visit. So, let the discoveries begin. All right hold on I'm just organizing. I don't even know where to start there. So many new products. What's purple on the outside creamy white on the inside and makes a Great Ship Donny Osmond socks no. Almost Masaaki sweet potatoes. They're not the normal sweet potato. They're not the bright orange sweet potato, their paler in color and flavor. Wise. I'm going to say that they're kind of like a roasted chestnut in obnoxious kind of way. But in a nice way like insists nutty sweetness these are great chips but wait met we sell. Masaaki. Potatoes in our protection when we can get them. These are delicious sweet potatoes people love them. They're great for you. You meant the sweet potatoes themselves. You mean in chip form that these should be considered some kind of health. Okay. These are potato chips, full disclosure, right So they come with all the caveats that regular chips do sweet potatoes themselves really good for you. I will stand by them. Those are probably in the store. Already I think those are coming in at the beginning of September or something like that, and they are limited because there's a limited number of these potatoes that can be made into chips. People associate trader Joe's with Pumpkins stuff in the fall. How about Pumpkin Spice Pretzel Slim's I mean this is a candy. Yes Pretzel but it's a pretzel that is swimming in really nice white chocolate with crushed pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds and I think we're trying to figure out another way to Pumpkin on their one more time. These are just great. So if you like the peppermint. Pretzel Slim's. I think you'd be a fan of these to these are really tasty sweet with just a little salty. So you just WANNA keep coming back for more. Another thing. That is sweet. But I think not too sweet are the pumpkin spice batons that are coming in and those are kind of a very close relative to the cocoa batons that we have every day and the vanilla batons we have the villa batons. Do, and we've had coffee batons we lemon for awhile it's a wafer cookie with pumpkin spice filling inside I mean it's kind of simple and straightforward, but it's a you know kind of thing you could have with a cup of coffee or even some ice cream though should be in stores by the time. This podcast lands and folks should be able to grab those right away. They're just delicious when we're thinking about. What else to include as a Pumpkin version we often look to really popular products Brioche we sell an inordinate amount of that classic agee, Sweet french-style Bread. We have a Pumpkin Brioche coming I'm excited for this. I think French toast will never be the same. That was also super limited by the right like it's it's in and we'll have it for a little while, but it's not something that's going to be around for. You know months and months and months. That's our hope for infant works or it'll be a great. Saint. Patrick's Day breakfast and by that time it'll be green. So perfect. One of the things that was a big sort of revelation to me this year even though it's not something we invented it's not something we were the first to think of is the spicy pumpkin curry simmer sauce that's coming in. It's kind of inspired more by a Thai curry than Indian curry but it has all of those really classic curry flavors. With the addition of actual Pumpkin and it's like thick and it's creamy and it's got a really good kick to it. I'M GONNA. Say This is good. Right out of the jar actually with Yeah Yeah I can't wait to hear about how people put this to use. We are working on a recipe right now internally for a Vegetarian Spicy Pumpkin Curry potpie that we're hoping to have on our website and in the fearless flyer in late. September. Also, I think slated to be featured in an upcoming flyer many spicy Pumkin Samosas the. Sabih in the frozen section, this is not a Pumpkin pie situation at all. This is an appetizer wonderful bridge creamy spiced pumpkin filling. This does sort of flavor. Wise. Go more toward the Indian style curry Classic Somoza Spices are used this. These are delicious. They're really good with a number of different kinds of sauces has been a we've tried them with a Chutney but also with our sweet chili sauce, which takes its inspiration from Thai cuisine and the hot and sweet pepper Jelly these tastes really good dipped in any of those. I'm still focused and obsessed with Pumpkin Pumpkin Nada. Now, this is a Pumpkin pie situation. So think of a small Mexican inspired hand pie with delicious spiced kind of a classic spice, Pumpkin Pie Spice filling. So. Good. So not like spicy spice but like sweet savory spice, the spices more like our spiced apple cider or a traditional Pumpkin pie spice sat up I mean this would be great for breakfast I. Think because I like to have pie for breakfast you know pine a cup of coffee is a great way to start the day, and this is like a little pie. So it's like I'm just having a little Lil Pie wilpon. That's your new nickname. Okay.

Neutralizing Negative Thoughts
"How are you going to ask a question? It's a simple question. You may not know the answer right now. You might have to check might have to reference it but I'm GonNa ask it anyway already. Do you know what day it is today. I mean what day of the Week. It is because a lot of folks. Your schedule's been flipped upside down. You're working at home. These days can't quite figure out what data's that's a bad thing actually. It's the daily boost from motivation to move dot com since about two thousand but we start in two thousand and five the show starred in two thousand six simple mission get up in the morning. See with world brings you could. We don't always expected to bring a pandemic but it does sometimes and it gets in her way like it's in the way okay. Well how do we deal with it? You know if you get done with the freak out and some people are still freaking out. Some people have really bad lives right now. It's it's really tough for a lot of others are barely even touched by an kind of an odd thing. So we're finding a new place to figure it out but it happens and we just work through a day by day. But why tell you what I've heard from? People that are in their homes these days and some are saying. I can't wait to get back to the office others going. This is kind of cool. I kind of like being at home at the time years ago. I made the switch I. I decided I didn't want to work in an office anymore and I actually didn't work in too many of them because I worked in Radio Section. Walk in and go through the office and go to the studio and you morning shows and I was doing the last morning show every day in West Palm Beach. Florida and As driving about sixty miles a day to get that while one way to get there so one hundred twenty miles a day. Four o'clock in the morning him on the highway cruising sixty minutes down. The radio station was getting kind of tired of it. The drive and so I started doing some math one day and the Matthew says if I drive two hours a day five days a week fifty weeks out of the year. That's about five hundred hours of driving. And then I divided it by forty a forty hour workweek right and came up with twelve point. Five forty hour workweeks driving like a third of the year and about a week later. I couldn't get out of my mind. I quit my job. So that's not GonNa do more and I took a Home Office as I'm saving all the time and putting it in into life and I've had a lot of clients through the same thing so maybe right now. You're thinking the same if you do that math right now. Some of you are going to sit at the dinner table tonight going. You know what I heard today. Do you know how many hours it's coming right. Haze Scott Smith good to have you. Thanks for stopping by. We're going to talk about neutralising. Negative thoughts today awesome show.

And there's a consistent theme in those e mails it was God. Have you noticed that the economy is kind of like stopped as pandemic is stopped?

But I'm kind of looking nineteen ninety-five gotta be smart here a CJ do so. Let me help so for the first time since two thousand six. I cut the price from nineteen ninety-five down to nine five fifty percent discount during this pandemic. That's going on right now. It's available to you. Nothing's changed just price. If you're interested. Go TO MOTIVATION WHO'VE DOT COM GET? Signed up right now okay. So are you having nightmares? Lot folks are having nightmares really bad dreams right now and I'm having some weird dreams. I wouldn't call them nightmares but weird dreams. Negative thoughts though popping up throughout the day. A lot of people are doing the right now and why not there is a lot going on. There's a lot to worry about depending on where you are in this particular Process we have going right now with a pandemic. It could be very negative for you. It's kind of hard to be positive. Isn't it yet force that so I was thinking about it? I was actually working with a couple clydes helping them. Kind of neutralize. Those thoughts and a part of my job won't kill. Let's bring it here and the more I began to think about the MOIS. Okay where do I begin to pick up this? Take that I use to neutralize those negative thoughts and when I I really began to be aware of it was when I was studying for my pilot's certificate learned a little airplanes got instant radio thing and as I was going through the process. I thought it was all about flying airplanes whether things like that but I was really surprised by the emphasis put on the health of a pilot state of mind now in the beginning I never had thought about it. But then again when you think about it. If you've ever watched movies you want the pilot to be feeling pretty good. Right if he's completely negative getting in the cockpit. That's not probably a good thing to do. Negative thoughts are hazardous to flying so they teach pilots to kind of recognize in that in themselves. And actually teach you to recognize it and crew members as well has it as thoughts. Negative thoughts man bad for life to. You might be feeling that right now so next time you're feeling negative. That thought nudging its way into your day. Here's what you do number one recognize it a lot of times. These things are flying in and out of your head. It were busy. Were caught up in the news and everything else is going on. Just survival really right and we're not taking the time to recognize what's happening. We might see it as a bad mood or just being grouchy. Just being depressed or something so I want you to stop and just if you can catch it in your brain catch it before it begins to bother you too much just recognize. It's their that is the first step toward neutralizing a hazarded negative. Thought it just recognizing and so simple sometimes when you just do that. Just by recognizing it's a thought. Sometimes it goes way. You don't have to do anything else. But what if you do while number two is got to label it? Got To call it. Something get identify why the Lousy thought is coming into your mind and Slab label on it. I do this all the time. I label everything when anything comes into my world and I just got to put. I got a call at something and if I don't know what to call it or what box it put it in. Or how file? I can't do anything with it bounces around my brain. It's like an open loop that goes on and on and on and on so label it when you know what to call it. You'll know what to do next so when you label it. Well I'M A. I'm just worried about finances. That's fine just label. I'm worried about money. That's cool. Just label it because now you can take a break. You know what it is. You've stopped that spin next. You prescribe the antidote and you make the underlying cause go away. Wash away the negative now. How do you do that? Well say it is money so you're worried about that. Do what I did doing an inventory. You go and you see exactly where you are and you start to make a bit of a plan I promise you when you recognize that label it and then begin to deal with it even the smallest amount the worry while will still be there will not be this unfettered in your face driving you crazy making his not sleep. Khanna worry it'll be more controlled. You'll feel more like you. That's all you need to do. And it all stops starts just by stopping it and recognizing what's going on. It can be incredibly easy to get caught up in negative negative. Not if you will find yourself frankly in a state of overwhelm. It's everywhere right. Now GonNa put the brakes on it. Take a few minutes. All of those steps recognize it sloppily. Bilotta and then prescribe prescribe the solution described. Don't just fiddle around with it. Literally sit down and say hey. I'm the doctor me. This is what I'm GonNa do rectify this problem. Even if you can't get all the way they're just the fact that you put it up on the table you can see where it is John to Stan would initiate where it's coming from and now you have at least somewhat of a path to head down to get get it taken care of. You will sleep so much better. I promise you by the way. Did you know that alcohol sales are up? Fifty five percent and marijuana sales are off the charts right now. I bet you didn't even have to tell you that. And you just know it right when you walk into a store and they've been armed guards standing around the beer you know. There's an issue going on so breath agee breath. I'M GONNA come back tomorrow. I can't I have no idea what I'm talking about because I'm talking to my coat my members I'm talking to my clients. I'm I'm seeing what's necessary. And then we craft the story for the next day but it'd be good one because man. My phone is ringing like crazy. Appreciate also check in industry yellow. I'm doing and you have great day. I'll see tomorrow.

States take on Google with antitrust investigation. This won't be quick.
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management learn more at ultimatesoftware dot com ultimate software people first and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Evan Lyle Rush enterprises is a big fan of Michigan as he put it. The future mobility is going to be decided right here in this state visit planted. 'EM DOT COM to find out why that's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. dot com. They are taking the fight to Google and facebook a lot of states a lot from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying demystifying the digital economy. I'm Jed Kim in from Hollywood this week. Attorneys general from forty eight states the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico announced their joining forces. They're investigating whether Google has engaged in anticompetitive headed behavior. Some of those ages are also part of another investigation into similar questions about facebook. The Google investigation will be directed at how the company's Search and advertising operations may inhibit competition the agee's are coming from both sides of the political aisle remembered bipartisanship and there are already other inquiries underway at the Federal Level Congress the FTC the Justice Department Stephen. Overly reports on tax check policy for politico. We asked him to give us a sense of what the stakes are in what state will be looking for one of the defining metrics for anticompetitive behavior if you're in the US is how it impacts the consumer and our consumers paying higher prices as a result of anti-competitive behaviour. That's trickier to measure with Google. Because most of us pay nothing to use. At least that's the conventional thinking but the argument that you've heard from some of these attorneys general is is that they feel. Google has a stronghold on digital advertising meaning. If you want to place ads online you have very few options beyond google to go to and so as a result these companies pay higher advertising prices and they pass those prices onto the consumer if the state attorney's find the Google all and facebook or did break antitrust laws what happens what can they do. One common outcome of these investigations is to require the companies to change their business practices practices and perhaps submit to sort of outside review to ensure that they have made those changes another approach could actually be to break up these companies for example facebook or Google might have to sell off a piece of their business or break off into two businesses. That's a pretty heavy undertaking There's not been a ton on of success with that in the past and so while these investigations are being announced and they're getting a lot of attention. I think it is a very a difficult legal road ahead for these enforcers if they're actually going to force change at these companies when my we actually see results of the investigation if if this investigation continues to mature and becomes a legal battle. We're likely looking at years of that playing out right now. I think it's clear these investigations are in the information gathering stage and so you know I think you'll start to see in the near future companies coming forward who who haven't already done so to make complaints against these companies and how they run their business. I should add that already. You know you're seeing some antagonise. UNISOM emerge in for example yelp on the review site has long been critical of Google and complain that they engaged in anticompetitive behaviour behavior news publishers have also long had complaints against Google and claim that it's advertising business has damaged their industry. Those industries have already started speaking out and I think you'll start to see more as these investigations mature. Stephen overly is a technology reporter for politico. Could anticompetitive behaviour savior also be seen in say facebook buying up instagram and WHATSAPP Stephen says maybe it really depends on the reasons behind the acquisitions and proving intention can be tough now here awesome related links. The aren't wasting time. They've already subpoenaed Google asking more than two hundred question than demanding record. The Wall Street Journal says some of the information requests get what I just mentioned about the intent behind some acquisitions like the buying of Doubleclick ad mob and add Meld Inc those are companies companies that helped build Google's AD business the only states attorneys general who are not yet part of the investigation into Google are those from Alabama and California in the latter's absence is pretty notable considering that it's a massive state home to Google with lots of resources and an attorney general's office. That's built a a strong antitrust team the AG Heavier Bezerra hasn't said why just that it needs to protect quote ongoing and potential investigations Gatien's the L. A. Times points out that but Sarah's political campaigns have received close to forty thousand dollars from Google related entities but then there are a bunch of other theories to the time reach out to get the opinions of a lot of experts. I alluded to the many acquisitions. FACEBOOK has made of other companies. It's kind of hard to know what the exact number is. The Wall Street Journal says that's around ninety tech wise put solicit just above seventy and tech wise has made an infant graphic. It got fifteen years of facebook shopping starting.

Big Tech faces a new set of foes: nearly all 50 US states
"This week Monday about a dozen attorneys general led by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced an antitrust investigation Gatien of alphabets Google joining us now via skype on the scene as a matter of fact is the Wall Street Journal's Brent Kendall. He is at the Supreme Court Brent. Thank you so much for taking taking some time high so Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. I understand led the charge in terms of remarks. He made on this probe. How did he set the stage. How things start out well there. Were about a dozen attorneys. General who appeared here in front of the Supreme Court Jeff formerly a announced this probe of their forty eight states and all the only two messing are California Google's home state in Alabama but attorney general packs from Texas basically led the proceedings and and said look you know we think Google has a lot of power there are big online dominance search platform and and they raise issues potentially for businesses and consumers and you know and it's past time for us to be looking here he was joined prominently by the Attorney General in DC car racine and then several other attorneys attorneys-general took turns at the Mike expressing their own concerns. One of the things that was interesting is there are a lot of broad concerns about Google but what we learned learned for now they're mostly focusing on Google's power in the search advertising market even as all these attorneys general have concerns about a whole host of Google practices so so we'll have have to see down the line whether this probe expands into something that becomes more more sweeping than what we heard right so with advertising and such taking the center stage aged anymore in terms of how the states will tackle that issue Google captures most of the US search market and as a result I mean they get all those eyeballs and that's where advertisers want to be so Google is powerful and search advertising so these are the ads that show up you know when you are punching a search term and we get results we get adds to go along with that so google dominant there and then in recent years it's also become dominant and what's called display advertising so they acquired several companies and expanded their own operations so all the like display ads that you see on websites all over the Internet from the Wall Street Journal to the onion all those ads are placed effectively like Google or at least most of them are and so you have both publishers and advertisers saying yeah it's it's really hard to do business in online advertising using without doing business through Google so the question is whether Google has such power in this area that it can foreclose competition and then you know raise prices is that both for businesses and reduce innovation for consumers so that's one of the big things at the state agee's talked about now. This is only the latest challenge for big tech. It's under fire from both federal and state antitrust enforcers not to mention from Congress. This seems like it's just the beginning for big tack heck. What else do we have to look forward to on the horizon because there is a lot. What do we look next. We'll there is a lot for now the federal any trust enforcers both at the just justice firm and the Federal Federal Trade Commissioner doing their own thing we know. Doj Scrutinizing Google me no the FTC is scrutinizing facebook. The agencies may also take a look at Apple Apple and we know they've been asking questions about Amazon and the states and the federal enforcers may join forces for some of these things at some point. It's too soon to tell and these investigations educations take a long time so I mean I wouldn't expect anything to happen soon and these can also be difficult cases. I mean these are fast moving innovative businesses you know and government officials may be slower to understand how these marketplaces work as a lot of the things that the general public is concerned about regarding these companies say on issues like privacy aren't the sort of things that necessarily are gonna be the centerpiece of a case as we saw as much as there were discussions about. Internet tracking and Google's building of personal data on each of us again. Most of the discussion was about advertising while I mean that's an important market a lot of people you know if you're talking to somebody just he ran into on the sidewalk about about Google. That's probably not going to the issue that comes up so they're still this potential disconnect between the kinds kinds of things that could end up being an enforcement case and the kinds of things that are normal. Everyday Americans really care about Bryant Kendall. I'm sure we'll be speaking again quite soon but in the meantime thank you so much for today.
Kale Yeah, He Did It!
"The long awaited day is finally here and for those of you who have been listening and following the podcast and stay one. You know that joe inga bronx firefighter has come an enormously along way to be toned up at the starting line today in six months he has figured out how to navigate eating plan strong wrong and staying plan strong in what i would consider the most hostile environment on the planet which is a firehouse where he is surrounded rounded by foods that are off plan accrue guys who are less than enthused about his food choices so i've gotta give joe major major kudos it has been super exciting to cochin and watched joe from the sidelines as he's grown and matured and and now ultimately decided to own this plan strongly style now before i share the actual triathlon with you today today. I want to invite you to drop in on a recent conversation that i had with a plan strong brother. His name is james lightning lightening wilkes and he and i talk about protein and specifically what this lifestyle does and eating this way <hes> <hes> can do to fuel your performance and i think it will help explain to you a little bit why joe and for all of you at home why you're able to do a a triathlon a five k. a. marathon and recover so well for those of you that don't know james is the producer of the much anticipated upcoming film the game changers it is gonna launch <hes> globally in over two thousand theaters on monday a september sixteenth and it is going to be nothing short of a game changer. James is a former m a fighter later turn plant strong crusader and as you're going to see in the film he discovered the truth about plants while he was recovering from two you need injuries that took him out of the ring for several months and what he learned launched him on a quest to expose the most dangerous myth on the planet and in the process james has become one of the greatest experts on protein and the power of plants in the world. Let's listen in. I think that <hes> one of the things that you address. It's probably the primary thing is what i think you you guys have dubbed the world's most dangerous myth what is the world's most dangerous myth well. I think the underlying with the most dangerous myth is real men eat meat. There's there's all these myths above that you need me for protein or too strong strong to be healthy but especially in that male demographic that real many meet methods is really strong. <hes> <hes> and i mean you look at your her year. Background is mixed martial artists. <hes> probably one of the most masculine subliminal you know face to face combat sports and here you are you you get injured and now you go on the search for the truth and nutrition following. I think some of the principles that you learned from from bruce lee right exactly i mean you know he was always in search for truth and combat which i was on the same path right and his philosophy was research experience absorb what is useful reject what is useless and add what is specifically around raleigh just listening to and this is what i used to do as a listen to what was written about in bodybuilding magazines fitness magazines or online you really got to cut through all of that and start looking at the research wjr and when you look at the research is really quite clear. Especially in the last ten to fifteen years has been a better understanding of the components that are in animal foods that are bad for you and the components plant foods that are beneficial <hes>. It's really very clear that are applying based is optimal not just the health but also athletic performance. I think one of the one of the great saying i heard originally from you was to drop the the bro science right that you're going to hear at the g._m. Yeah you're gonna hear all sorts of stuff at the gym but that's just again stuff people have read online and then <hes> perpetuated in the gyms so what what's bro science. What are some of the things that these guys in the gyms are are being told well one of the biggest things obviously is you know how much protein you need but more specifically it's like weady protein protein from and there's this really strong myth and this pro science that you have at protein from animal foods whereas in reality you know all protein originates implants can't animals are just the middleman and basically animals are doing you a disservice. They're taking all of those beneficial nutrients that you could be getting and in return giving you all of these inflammatory molecules so it's all about the package right you can get protein in animal foods. You can get a protein implant foods the original source but the package which it comes with fiber fell late <hes> these antioxidants versus an animal foods. You've got these inflammatory compounds like <hes> t._m._a. Oh and agee's new five g. All these things that it was fun to learn about these lost sort of ten fifteen years in the literature heme iron he mind yeah exactly you say him. I say him <hes> yeah so we're starting to realize that even the he minded self is inflammatory and even the animal protein protein the amino acid profile of animal foods is also yeah. I think what is so fascinating to me. Is that in america erika. We've had the discussion about good fats bad fats. We've had the discussion about good carbs. You know kinda bad carbs but really what's never been put on. The table is good protein. Bad protein is just like well protein. You can't get enough of it. The only way to get it is from animal products vary products and it's like that's why to me. It is truly the world's most dangerous myth because everybody's convinced that you know if <hes> if i don't get enough protein amana wither up i'm adine ivine <hes> or i'll be hospitalized for protein deficiency in you. I mean you you guys delve into that in a beautiful a film it's not just the protein is when you start eating like that. You're reading obviously animal foods which are the leading cause of of death in this country in the western world up primarily due to what people are eating so it's not just the proteins that package and everything that people are eating so the leading cause of death in the western world a priority caused by what people eat right and so it's killing more people than anything else and it's also really bad for the planet and also you'll the animals also dying as well so it really is the world's most dangerous man i could not be more excited about the game changes film. I know it is going to move the needle and helping people wake up to what is marketing hype in what is factual actual if you think about joe and the overhaul that he has done in his life the idea of training for any athletic feat seemed virtually impossible people at the beginning of his journey he had zero energy he had tried and failed numerous times to adopt a regular fitness regime in the the past but he would either injure himself or he be so sore for a week or more that he would then abandon the idea and move on but during our time together he was able to consistently put one foot in front of the other and his fuel source was so clean and plan strong long that he has not had any setbacks along the way and his recovery time has been accelerated immensely so when thinking about joe's joe's experience. I want you to now imagine professional athletes. If joe can train and get stronger in recover faster while on a plant strong diet just think what that could mean for these professional athletes well wait until you see the game changers because we show on on the big screen real impactful and visual results with some pretty reluctant experimental subjects including pro football players yes and with my help a group of new york city firefighters from brooklyn. Now let's turn this over to james and hear what he he has to say about what he's learned about blood circulation and how it's affected by what we eat you another thing to me. That was so brilliant about the way you laid out. The game changers was what you did with these n._f._l. Athletes the receivers for the at the time the miami dolphins and you were able to show again what can happen with with your blood in just after eating a a meat vate meat-based meal versus a veggie based meal <hes> <hes> can you talk a little bit about that. Show i mean so that you can draw the blood offer meal and separate it out using a centrifuge and it's called post-prandial post-prandial i._p. May which means fat in the blood after eating and you can really see a difference when the when there's not much fat in the blood is sort of looks like olive when he separated out and when they found the blood it looks much more like elmer's glue in so <hes> so once translucent right and when you can't see exactly and so with the animal animal based foods you can see within an hour or so and then getting locked up for six or eight hours you can see that the the plasma in the blood when you separate out the red blood cells from the plasma very cloudy and when the happens reducing endothelial function. It's been up to fifty percent on ultrasound. You're going to see reduction of the arteries on dilating openness much which means less blood which that oxygen must nutrients to the muscles and all the organs in the body so you just not functioning as well right the plant based meals. Don't have that effect in the doctor that helped you. That was dr robert vogel. Who's the co. Chairman woman is the coach of the cod clues <hes> committee on cardiovascular health right right. I mean again incredibly powerful scene and i'm just will open up. I think people's is tremendously another thing that we did and this was utilizing myself as we went into a firehouse firehouse right right in <hes> in new york city and i think we had about thirty five thirty five new york city firefighters and we wanted to show them what what happened with their weight their blood pressure and their lipid panel in just seven days right. I mean you've been getting those results over and over again right outside of that just keeps each replicating itself. You go plant based for a week during this whole plant based foods and you're seeing a drop in allie-allison you're dropping total cholesterol improved blood blood pressure dropping triglycerides. It's you know so if you didn't if the experience hasn't been done and it hasn't been tested you would think it's almost unbelievable to happen in such a short short period of time. It's amazing how your body has the ability to heal itself and much better when you're putting in the right fuel. So why did you in. Joseph and louis decide that doing this with a bunch of firefighters would be good for the film. I think it's a great group of rio brioni meet with you know like we talked about before and you know so firefighters athletes soldiers those types of people that traditional additional sort of male role models and so we thought it'd be a good group and you. You are <hes> going out to that talking. Put him on that trial a great thing to film and i think it it worked out really well yeah yeah well. I was honored to be part of it. Thank you for that

The good and the bad - Democratic midterm results
"We started talking about wave of women nudity elected. Oh, I think it's a huge shift. And I think we'll see it it won't just be the year of the woman. I think the seeds of the decade the women were planted because not only did we elect women in a different kind of woman at the top. But we feel the pipeline with tons of women in state legislative races and county commission races and Agee's people that are running for Senate and president and governor for eight years from now we'll have won their first election last Tuesday. But what's so interesting? I think listening in we've had guests from based parties and also with different positions here on this show. It's not entirely clear who's supposed to be happy with the result. And who's supposed to be a bit disappointed. Yes. Particularly jealous. Help me out here. Well, I think the fat is hassle and having MJ for everyone. I mean, we accomplished our biggest goal which was to take that house and the singularly most important thing we also elected a number of governors, including in the three states that account for Donald Trump being president, Michigan Wisconsin, I'm his Vania. We laugh at eight by eight thousand votes, Donald Trump would not be president. If we had won those states, we elected democratic governors in all three of done democratic governors. Do you make a difference? So I think we accomplished that we also elected a record number of women and mobilized a female base. That's sad. Donald Trump lean in a way that no one else has ever done that we've ever seen in any midterm election democrat or Republican he mobilized the Trump voters, not just Republicans Trump voters. He worked hard to define the race. And did it for. Space. Not so successfully for swing voters, but he proved how formidable he is and how formidable he will be in twenty twenty. I it sounds like you gave him sort of more credit for thinking things through. Then a lot of this was sympathetic to the Democratic Party. Would I be right? Well, I think he's a brilliant strategist he understands its brand. And he understands how to create his reality show, and he understand and he's willing to play a very high risk Dacians role in that reality shows. So I think he's quite formidable letting his team has fight formative on would be very foolish to underestimate him. Because that's a great way for him to get reelected in twenty twenty that love to know, what it is that you think the democratic policy has to learn from these midterms unpack from the fact that Blue Wave became a-, depending on whether you're at Optima sto Oles so preps a series of blue splashes. I think the Blue Wave was more of a blue swell. And but I think it had that makings from the beginning. I think a lot of the press accounts were overstated that's sad. I think there are two things that we learned and saw more than learn in twenty teens one is we mobilize our base. They mobilized their this is the first time in a midterm election where both bases were mobilized. Secondly, the Democrats must get an economic message. Either the election we lost salary. The people who thought the economy was in good shape. And we were fifteen points behind the Republicans on the Konami we could make it through twenty eighteen like that. We will not win twenty twenty like that. The Democrats must get an economic news.

U.S. Justice Dept meeting with state officials focuses on data privacy
"Top US Justice department officials met this morning with a group of state attorneys general to talk about the tech industry. The Justice department had originally pitched the meeting as a focus on allegations that the social media companies suppress conservative viewpoints. But the conversation went far beyond that two issues that raise the stakes for tech giant's NPR's Alina, so UK is here to tell us more hailing. Hello, hey, so set the scene for me a little bit more. This was a big meeting at the Justice department, and what exactly was the agenda? Right. The gathering was a bipartisan meeting was dubbed a listening session by the department of Justice. There were fourteen states represented whether by attorneys general or their deputies US attorney general Jeff Sessions was there along with his own deputies and originally they did as you mentioned said this meeting up to address accusations from conservative politicians that social media companies allegedly suppressed conservative views, but this meeting ended up being a much broader. Conversation, potentially more significant I spoke with Nebraska attorney general Doug Peterson who ran through a list of his concerns focused on consumer protection transparency. Whether or not data security is adequate what type of representations are being made by internet companies to their users. Do they get through consent? Peterson is Republican from what he and other stole the about this meeting. The talked about a lot of things how tech companies like Facebook and Google collect user data. How they protect it. How antitrust laws might be used to set the right standards for consumer privacy. And whether simply these companies are too big. Okay. So they met they talked about all kinds of stuff to they come up with any concrete plans to act on all this stuff. Right. So Peterson told me that next step is many more state agencies are going to be interested in this topic. The are looking at waste of pursue a multi state action of some sort. We don't know what exactly that might mean. It is very early in the process, for example, Louisiana attorney general Jeff Landry has previously spoken about breaking up. Social media. Behemoth's Landry did not come in today. But I just speak with California. Attorney general have your bizarre who's a democrat. And he says they're turning generals today did talk about historic cases, when the government moved to break up companies such as standard oil, and Microsoft, here's Sara there's a recognition that privacy has a different definition for everyone these days and would does matter is how the law treats privacy. But clearly rarely do you have a discussion of privacy with that. Ultimately having a conversation about antitrust. And of course, antitrust is exactly that question of whether companies are too big. But Sarah said the weren't exactly sure that simply breaking up the company isn't a smaller pieces would resolve all the concerns. For example, those concerns about privacy. And meanwhile, I'm imagining tech companies might have some thoughts on indeed. Well, I'll tell you a few weeks ago people in the tech industry were pretty quick to dismiss this whole meeting as political theater. But now, we're in a different reality. We've got state Agee's from both parties cooperating on much bigger questions. I spoke to gauche who a former policy advisor and Facebook, and he's now a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, and we spoke before this meeting, and he said that just having these prosecutors from all over the country digging around the company's algorithm. Secret sauce was going to be tough for them. If the state Agee's band together with the attorney general and start task really. Difficult incisive questions of these companies and threaten action is the industry doesn't come to the table. And discuss it, then I think that the industry is going to be in a pretty difficult position. And this bipartisan meeting today definitely puts them on notice. Alright NPR's Alina Seljuk filling us in there on all things considered from NPR
U.S. Justice Department to discuss consumer protection at social media meeting
"US attorney general Jeff Sessions is expected to meet this morning. With a group of state attorneys general to talk about the power of the tech industry. The meeting is intended to focus in part on allegations of bias in social media NPR's Alina, sell you explains stay Agee's can have a fair amount of oversight of social media because they are empowered by pretty broad consumer protection laws originally, the Justice department said sessions wanted to talk with state Agee's about whether social platforms might be quote hurting competition and intentionally stifling, the free exchange of ideas, conservative politicians and President Trump have alleged that social platforms suppress conservative views, which Twitter Facebook and Google have denied since then the DOJ has invited not just Republican, but also democratic state Agee's. So it's likely the talks will go beyond bias allegations. And into other concerns about the size and reach of tech
