California Bill Targets Fast-Paced Working Conditions at Warehouses

"Lawmakers are weighing the first legislation of its kind. Which could give warehouse workers new power to fight speed quotas. Npr's alina seljuk reports. Hurry hurry hurry send you about. Eta says that's how it felt when she worked at an amazon warehouse in southern california. All you see people bending down scanning every individual items getting to screening individual items scanning to wayne it out having to run to the other side put it in the conveyor and start over again. She rotated through several jobs for ten hours a day. she would bend twist reach scan. Unwrap re wrap hoping to hit two hundred items. Our i rarely ever saw anyone to use the restroom or less you know. They talked to some morley. Do mind scanning this item like every three minutes just so might time off. Task doesn't accumulate cover for time off. Task is carefully watched by amazon. The company says it's to make sure all technology is in working order but also to identify underperforming workers too much time off task over time and the algorithm can flag you as a slacker and get you fired some workers leg bharata who is now an organizer with a warehouse. Workers resource center have argued that the pace of work is unhealthy unsustainable. That's what prompted new legislation by california assemblywoman laurenti gonzalez were absolutely targeting. The practices of amazon that are being picked up quite frankly by other retailers the legislation. Ab seven one is a rare bill to specifically target large warehouses. It's complex but has two key themes the main one says productivity quotas cannot come at the expense of health and safety. If they do the bill would give workers more legal power to fight them. The second is transparency giving workers the representatives and government officials more access to detailed records of quotas and workers actual rates. What we know is that amazon workers get hurt. Twelve times as often as other warehouse

How best without spending a fortune in you get this kind of information in your products out that you would recommend. I'm scott thank you for following me. Scott and for four congratulating beyond being clubhouse So really a question. I think after the question on what exactly gonna create in my business. The what's my expertise on with. How can they package it. The next most common question is how do i get people to buy it. Which is all of your marketing. And there's a big section in my book on specifically the marketing aspect of it. The biggest mistake. I see people make. Is they try to be everywhere and they trying to share. That message was pretty much everyone they can think. And when you have when you are on like fifty different platforms when you are trying to be everywhere in the visible everywhere. Your message gets super diluted so this is why like one of the reasons. I'm have not been on the clubhouse as i chose my platform and i stick to it because that's where you develop relationships that's the platform you master. And that's what's going. Give you the best bang for your buck because instead of trying to master whole bunch of this on platforms being mediocre. Be really really good at one platform..

These are the latest numbers. We now have more than 800 new cases of Covid 19 and nearly 300 people are in the hospital. 11 people have died and nearly half of all these new cases are linked to the new delta variant. This new strain, which originated in India is considered the most dominant and it is more deadly and more contagious. Here in California. We are seeing more than 1100 new daily cases of Covid 19. That's a 30% increase, also a 30% increase in hospitalizations compared to June, according to health experts. These are People that are entering up in the hospital or people who are still unvaccinated. So what does all this mean? Are we headed for another shutdown? Well, not likely, according to Governor, Gavin Newsom, as long as everyone gets the vaccine because the numbers are still significantly lower, roughly 94% lower compared to the peak of the pandemic. This data serves as an important reminder about the need for masking and infection control among those not yet vaccinated. Well, you heard it right there, According to health experts, the best protection at this point is to get the vaccine and in terms of efficacy, there is no concrete up information as of right now, but they still do recommend getting it. It is said that the Johnson and Johnson provides up to eight months of protection, and we're also hearing that Pfizer and biotech are now working on a third booster shot.

One doctor richardson. We are so pleased to have you with us very excited to be here. Thank you so Because we're a medical student guests pretty much to a little bit about yourself and how he developed an interest in medicine as a career. While so i'm go away back so first of all i'm I practice internal medicine so and you know. I can talk a little bit about how i got into into that field but i started in as an undergraduate student in biology and realized quite quickly that that seemed Seemed fairly uni dimensional. For me. And i realized i was really missing all of these other aspects of of my life including storytelling and writing and reading in the arts and so i ended up doing a degree in english as well. And in hindsight i realize that as A mixed lead person of indigenous initial bay And european ancestry that that idea around thinking about health in a in a really holistic way not just about through the bio the biologic component of health physical health but thinking about Stories and our community and culture and how they're all connected is very much initial by way of of being seen he alina and wellbeing more broadly. So i think it made sense that i didn't realize at the time why i needed to branch out beyond just a particular form of of of Study but in hindsight it really does And then i realized that the way to have an impact was Beyond beyond biology and beyond academics. Because i really did love. The academic environment was it felt really disconnected from being able to change What was happening on the ground for for Our people and wanting to be able to care for people and and also care for communities and change the healthcare system. So that's how. I ended up in in medicine. And then really internal medicine for me. Because it was a way of i think being more integrated Not just around. As i said you know it was a way to listen to story and problem solve and work with people and have time to spend with with my patients and and that's gravitated towards I i've always loved teaching and so quickly got into teaching and realizing that the way to change the healthcare for indigenous peoples was for the next generation of practitioners to understand cultural safety and indigenous health anti-racist

So i recall the way. I grieved for my godmother. Look differently than how. I grieved for my uncle. May they rest in peace and that was just from being a therapist and enjoying analyzing myself. Like that was fascinating to me after i healed and being able to see that how it didn't look the same and it's kind of maybe for some of you listening. It's a bullet will duh well of course but many of us that didn't grow up with being used to losing people it throws a curve ball at you. You never know what to expect. Absolutely absolutely i think what loss comes in douses that it shakes up your routine. You're going through life. Understanding that change happens. But it's not like you know at the forefront and then all of a sudden loss comes in shake you My read this comparison recently about it being like an earthquake where it shakes up your earth than your land and all of a sudden things that were there are no longer there and now you're pushed into a new direction because of the loss. Yeah and it's not a smooth transition into that new direction. Sometimes so alina what happens to our minds our bodies and souls when we grieve so like i mentioned i think it looks different for everyone so all of us are express it differently. Okay but keeping in mind what happens. Generally to people pay is the following so far mind because grief can cost changes in how our brain functions some people record set.

NPR's Alina Cell Yuk has been following this union drive and joins us now. Hey, Lena. Hello. Hello. We should first note that Amazon is among NPR sponsors. So why did the warehouse workers vote against forming a union? Well, it depends on who you ask. We know that across the country, Lots of Amazon workers have been raising concerns about warehouse conditions. Grueling pace rules that seemed to constantly change. But I also talked to loving that Stokes, who works at the best of our warehouse, voted against unionizing. We talked two weeks ago, and she said She found the pay at Amazon. Fitting for the work. Amazon pays more than double the local minimum. She spoke highly of her benefits and on top of it all, she doesn't trust the union. This particular union can't give us anything at Amazon that is not being offered. We already have due process We have what's called employee relations. HR walks the floor. They're on your every single floor. Workers like her delivered a really decisive defeat to the union drive votes against unionizing outnumbered votes in favor of a union by more than 2 to 1. Wow. So what did the union and the workers who supported it say about this loss? They are gearing up for a legal battle. The retail wholesale in department store union, which was trying to represent best more workers, is filing charges against Amazon. The union is now accusing the company of confusing, misleading, scaring workers into voting against the union. The legal case is likely to take weeks, if not months.

Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation

"We're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open

Trade group: Retail sales should grow 6.5% to 8.2% this year

"Nation's largest retail trade group, is forecasting strong sales growth this year as more folks received the Corona virus vaccine. NPR's Alina Selya reports. The National Retail Federation predicts that American shoppers this year will spend more than $4.3 trillion. The group says retail sales will grow between 6.5% and 8.2%. The highest rates seen since 2004 that cover spending at stores but also on cars, gas at restaurants and bars. And the forecast is rooted in the idea that more people will start spending the money. They've been stashing away while cooped up during the pandemic. This year's growth would also build on the huge jump and spending that happened in 2020 despite the global crisis, when people spent heavily on home renovation, sports equipment, groceries and lots of online shopping.

Alabama: The Newest Amazon Union Battleground

"Okay lena to understand. What is happening at this alabama warehouse. I'm guessing we should start by looking at some history. Yes and i spoke to just the person for that. Monday is gym specially and i'm a voca auditor for mercedes benz. Us international. We do audits on vehicles. After they're built jim as a very unique perspective on the union voted amazon because his mercedes plant. That was the epicenter of the last time. A super high profile labor battle played out in the state of alabama. And it makes sense that we'd be talking about auto plants because of course. A lot of foreign automakers have been opening factories in the south for decades. Now alex since the nineties yes they brought a lot of new jobs and jim you know he loves his job but he has a pretty glum view of why these foreign car companies came to the south in the first place the coming here because of the fact that there is not a fear of unions. You know they're saying we're just not educated. You know country bumpkins and whatnot. They don't know nothing about unions and don't care a lot of this stems from to work laws and all this other states which say that each worker can choose not to pay union dues still. The auto industry is historically pretty unionized. So the big auto union. The united auto workers decided to go after these new southern factories prompting intense anti union campaigns all labor experts. I talked to about unionization in alabama. Brought up this period of time. Like michael innes jimenez from the university of alabama the board that i'll never forget. Do you want tuscaloosa to be the next detroit. Let's throw race in there too. Obviously but seeing this post industrial city in a lot of pain and blaming the unions and then something incredible happened. workers at volkswagen in. Tennessee voted against the union and vw was the one company that actually wanted a union. It was the governor and republican lawmakers who fought against it from the air things just unraveled nissan workers in mississippi also rejected. The union at jim spits lease mercedes. Plant in alabama. Uaw didn't even petition for a vote. What it all comes down to is getting that vote and we haven't got that in twenty five years on three attempts so this sets the stage for where we are. Now this is. Why alina been asking you. How alabama became the first state to potentially have a unionized amazon warehouse. Right that's why so many people find it surprising. But i actually think that could be one of the three main reasons why this warehouse got to a union votes. So quickly we know amazon has stamped out union attempts and other places perhaps. The company also wasn't expecting such aggressive organizing in alabama compared to more traditionally Activist places. That's factor number. One are the other two to others are about the time and the place. Then let's start with a time. This is one of the things. I heard from the union. That's helping organize amazon workers in bessemer. The unions called the retail wholesale and department store union. And it's president. Stuart applebaum pointed out that this warehouse is only about a year old so it opened right as the pandemic started. I believe that the pandemic opened a lot of people is they understand now that they need a collective voice to stand up for themselves and to protect themselves. I also think that people had expectations when they came in that were not being realized. Amazon has been raking in profits during the pandemic which workers often bring up and also amazon went on a massive hiring spree and this by the way is often when workers ended up gaining some more power which is when they know that the employer needs more workers. The retail union folks say the best. My warehouse workers reached out to them quietly in the summer. They were describing grueling productivity quotas. They wanted to have more say in how they work. How they get disciplined. How they get fired. The union then mobilized support system of other folks from the region who are already unionized particularly workers from poultry plants. Okay and that brings us to your third factor alina. Which is the place right exactly. Professor michael innes jimenez pointed out something notable about alabama on that few people might realize if you follow the border and the coastline between california and maryland. alabama has the highest unionization rate for every state between california maryland. and then throw in tennessee. Also it's a pretty low rate. Only about eight percent of alabama workers are union members which is lower than the national average. But it is higher than all other southern states. And then you've got the specific location of the amazon warehouse which has bessemer. It's a working class. Suburb of birmingham. It's got early roots. In steel and mining and unionized labor. And another thing about bessemer is that it's a community that's predominantly black and the amazon unionization campaign is evoking social justice themes focusing a lot on respect in the workplace and of course this is all happening on the heels of the black lives matter protests. Yes exactly but the union also presented as part of its history. Its members marched with martin luther king junior in the sixties the union president talks about how in the south labor and civil rights battles have always been intertwined and so alina people think that all of these things at the time the place the context will end up making a difference and give alabama. The nation's first unionized amazon warehouse. the union. certainly hope so folks there told me more than half of the workers at the bessemer warehouse signed petitions for union shop. So they think this could be it of course amazon for its part has led a big anti-union campaign. They've got required meetings where workers were told. How union dues our waste of money. How great these jobs are already with all the benefits and the starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour and for context. The minimum wage in alabama is also the federal minimum wage which is seven dollars. Twenty five cents an hour which makes amazon starting wage of fifteen dollars an hour. More than double the alabama minimum. That is actually a big point four. Jim spits lee over the mercedes benz plant as he's watching this big amazon union. Vote play out it'll send a nami ripple but it's going to send one. It's going to let people know that. Hey even people fifteen dollars an hour. Seventeen dollars an hour can have union in their workplace. Bessemer warehouse workers will be voting by mail through the end of march. If this votes exceeds at an anti union place like amazon in alabama. This could turn a whole new page for both the

What Is Your Back Catalogue Worth?

"What's asiapac. A low worth has an intrinsic value to you as well as the audience. You're creating for go back catalogue is when you create work. This not just focus on what's current but takes account of the longer term. It's content that pertains fairly because there's something universal and perennial about it in this way. Not only is it valuable to others. It also helps manual position in the marketplace. Currently there's a flurry of music. Artists alina back catalogs. The lives of bob dylan new young secure of done it even dolly parton thinking about pissing beat to be head so if you build an audience share content defines. Its home of your audience. Your back catalogue can also become something. That's desirable catholic. A work is your audience can always access. It's worth the grows and evolves alongside your audience. You can become a self replenishing goldman in times of new clients have improved that you'll someone who does the work and potential clients getting comfortable with your approach. A website that shares one or two articles every now and then feta video and if you four-page e books does not come across as high value however one of the back catalogue of regla audio writing and video content posted over a period of time suggests is a place of value to us on a u. at the media online in two thousand and twenty joe pelosi said to everyone but anyone michelle content if it went tomorrow. If not your content you have a problem a back cutler means you invite days that you share today but also track record that shows. You're someone who keeps and has kept on giving me never become irrelevant by choosing to rest for used in the past with touring on home to the ever-growing increase in streaming. We're seeing a trend for music. Artists selling the rights at back. Catalogues artists unrealized by a cashing. In on the value of songs they produce david as uk based rotea fund. Hypnosis is obtaining the rights to artists from blondie to mark ronson in the sky article musical journalist. David sinclair said. If you're talking with the idea if you're a rockstar. If you bob dylan you're thinking to yourself. This might be time. He's getting twenty using comp one year right that in a lump sum in sakir who sold the rights to one hundred. Thirty five songs to hypnosis. I'm humbled that songwriting. And given me the privilege of communicating with others being a part of something bigger than myself autism now handing over the word ridden and shed over the years for fake off certainly does not mean tied in this context. This story of selling bank catholics chimes with how we in the beats a bass bass produce work for an audience. It proves that when you work is relevant to others this more reason to keep going the blog articles you produced back in two thousand nine nineteen. Maybe didn't get many views when they were first published. But that doesn't mean the not value sitting within your overall bank of work similar to music artists. Your job is to keep plane so that you keep developing your audience when people find you they can then join the dots and get a more complete picture of y you share is relevant to them. Those articles that received little traffic into nineteen are important in the context of your overall efforts. A moment in time should not be your only anka booting up a back catalog of which shows in your work over time making it easier for people to make a decision on whether to buy or subscribe. Starting the a space that people can visit but also record of how you've developed in the music industry return longevity. What about you. How will you know wherever you're back catalogue is where something it won't be. The same. ballpark is bob. Dylan's three hundred million pounds. When he sold his six hundred songs universal music for how we find out. If what you share has worth you would. Immediate has been around every week apart from some short breaks since october. Two thousand thirteen almost eight years. Now here's why building a back. Catalog of content provides vani in both the short and long after the first one. Is this over time. People see the value provide be prepared to play. The long game is so important. I wonder where ought be now if i hadn't been producing content every week for you at the median. I reckon it would be somewhere where i am today when people recognize. Your work is something that they can get behind you have a license to develop momentum secondly it can support your wider efforts. Your back catalog makes it easier to introduce for new initiatives. The one thing that has remained constant from me has been my writing. This was the tree. I planted back in twenty thirteen and new branches of grown. It made introducing in person and then online live events easier. Don't think of the word you produce in isolation look at it as a way to connect your intentions and third lake is greater use beyond the immediate space producing a back. Catalog extend your scope by this. I mean what stance a piece of work in one channel can extend into other formats. For instance blogs have become talked topics for other people's podcast. One single article became a webinar in april. Twenty twenty on your first ten email subscribers the next point is that it becomes and it brings people closer or from people. The proof of the work. You've already done helps you by helping them. Make a decision go back catalogue in contrast to say tha that competitors whose output may be more sporadic demonstrates perseverance. Next point is that it contributes to sales while message of this. You the media online. That i'm talking to you now is not around selling your business based on your content. Your work can be indirectly related to revenue for instance. The world you produce can also present a way to sell products and services but in a way that isn't merely emphasizing for instance being a trusted business increases the impact. You can make and this links to one of the aspects of what the month of learning represents a recent podcast looked at the impact of trust. Next is your were becomes a reference and search to your back catalogue can become a place for us to take from an somewhere. Search engines recognize websites. We've over three hundred and eleven index pieces of work c. Two hundred and thirty six percent more traffic than no sign of not too many pages and this is ups ball. What this means. Is that the better. Your ongoing work is indexed. There is more for a search engine to look through and support your search rankings ultimately ultimately want visit us to stick around on your site for that you need to offer work they will enjoy and lastly grow from it. The more you practice delivering something the better you become by learning. How the audio space works. I've become a better speaker by sharing a short video every week for the of the media weekly email. I think become a better presenter by writing every week. I've become a stronger writer. Whilst as an emphasis on creating roughness never forget this contributes to your own personal development. Let's roundup similar to writing and sherry music. You just put all your effort into a once a year christmas. Oh you have to keep introducing new material. That can stand the test of time all comes down to having that ability to keep going is what you're creating talking to be worth. Something is what you're producing contributing to your overall message actions in commercial delivery to give you the freedom to play an experiment. Why if your entire back catalogue disappear tomorrow but people let you know what they show concern. You're back catalogue is your commercial worth directly and indirectly and it's important to keep on playing for the audience as you show up to it

"alina" Discussed on Power 3.0 | Authoritarian Resurgence, Democratic Resilience

"I mean this should be of high priority to certain european countries to the united states as well it took the united states longtime to publish <hes> our strategy and it's mostly still in the military space on not in the space of ethics and norms and rules goals but you know we are falling behind in that so unless democracies are able to get a grip meaning that we need to come to the table income up with a common set of norms and practices around the specific issue around took us around <hes> technological exports especially the end imports in the u._s. Now <hes> very aggressively trying to push back against the use of technology for example the many european already pretty adopt this technology and so this is gonna come at a great cost for them to roll that back but i think we have been asleep at the wheel for a very long long time and now going to much much harder to roll back the incursions something to throw a train regimes made into our democracies through a look like legitimate ah technology sales but we have to keep in mind that technology sales from authoritarian dictatorial regimes always come with strings attached so in that vein you know if we're trying to think about weaknesses in the authoritarian strategy i was intrigued by your example of telegram program and how the russian authorities were not able to successfully manage that <hes> and i'm wondering if there are any lessons from that either about approaches to the private sector her ways that companies can play a role that might be applicable outside russia's borders but do you think that you could briefly describe what happened with telegram and then if you think there's anything to be learn from that. This is a really fascinating example. I'm glad i'm glad you brought it up. So for listeners there may not be aware telegram one of these <hes> private messaging apps. That's a highly encrypted so similar to signal or <hes> or what's up <hes> and it was <hes> designed and made by a russian entrepreneur <hes> and normal government. I'm a democratic government that values entrepreneurship. This should be lauded as a great achievement. You know that you have a successful tech company. This used by lots of people around the world of course in the russian context. This is seen as a threat to the regime because it allows people to communicate and set up a channels or groups groups <hes> just to shan formation. That's not official or control information and when the russian intelligence services the f. b. <hes> <hes> tried to enforce a russian law that actually forces all companies that have operations within russia to allow access to there and corrupted channel so they had to basically provide the encryption keys so bad the russian f._s._b. Services will be able to monitor and track communications telegram graham obviously don't want to do that. It will lose all legitimacy people calling nine use it anymore so for them. This was an existential question and they fought it tooth and nail l. meaning that they refused to do this and they found various work arounds to try to route their data in various other ways with the russian government did was was a complete embarrassment. They responded by trying to shut down millions of i._p. Addresses and that were not related telegram below relate to other cloud services like an amazon amazon <hes> other <hes> large <hes> <unk> data holding companies and the end of actually screwing over there on banking <unk> sector for example some people's on banking broke down people can get an amazon. They couldn't do that online shopping. <hes> you know it was a huge effects across crossed the economy and it was a huge embarrassment to the government. I think that clearly signals is that in countries like russia that have not kept up with imposing these repressive rules and practices as the internet was developing as these new technologies. We're developing now now. They're also not well prepared to bring an all to put all back in the box right and so this fight would telegram. I think was really instructive because i think it exposed imposed some of the uncoordinated <hes> kind of ad hoc bajd incompetence of the regime eamon again. This is why i started the conversation. If you look at what's happening russia domestically you've quickly see that the government is not ten feet tall because they're naming capable of dealing with a relatively small company buddy would that tells us is then countries that are quite controlled authoritarian question. There is still space for entrepreneurial companies especially for oh. The tax sector to use its own lovers is only leverage against the government against these repressive norms as a way to expose will. They're capable not incapable of doing <hes>. I think other companies <hes> a lot of western companies have been complicit in this and they've signed up to these repressive rules. Dave conformed to the russian. Government's demands the installed these so-called black boxes allow the f._b._i. To monitor activities from their servers they sign up for the same with china china's a huge market so we need to be much from aware of our own western tech companies are complicit in facilitating beating the growing digital authoritarian regime in russia and china and i think implicit in your responses that <hes> we have largely largely perceived this degree of integration between authoritarian regimes and democracies as working well according to our revamped view now in the democracies is working against as the democracies but to some extent if there were some realize ation at this and if companies decided to think collectively about how to work against this there is a degree of leverage to be had from that integration absolutely <hes> you know the entire world is increasingly more connected tune in digital space and it's not governments that control that space for the most part it is private companies and as a result <hes> because individuals want the new phones. They win the new apps. They want google facebook and whatever else there's a lot that these companies can shouldn't be doing. I think that is in line with democratic values and principles and for too long <hes> we've let these big firms off the hook because i think think we in the united states have been too afraid <hes> to mandate to legislate regulatory practices to force these companies to come to terms with the fact back that they're not just <hes> being used for good. They are being used for evil as well. I mean we have to be very clear about the morals and principles of democratic societies because these are the muslim principles are deeply under threat and the private sector has a huge role to play in this and have a great deal leverage. I would argue more than many governments and they need to start stepping up. I think you've touched on an issue that so centrally in which is on the one hand in the norm setting realm the governments in beijing and moscow riyadh and elsewhere. They're very purposeful this full about what they'd like to see of all in the online space in terms of <hes> the way it's thought of in terms of his ideas such as internet sovereignty whereas the democracies for a host of reasons some of them quite understandable. They don't have the same unitary <hes> approach to these things haven't quite figured out how to defend their interests when it comes to things as basic as norms of a freedom of expression and i think what we've seen over the last couple of decades cades is a a slow erosion of that because the <hes> less free countries have been more <hes> mindful and purposeful and what they're trying to achieve and so if you were to identify <hes> one or two things that would be most useful to set the wheels in motion in doc in the democracies in a more practical way to start a more meaningful defense of these sorts of standards and values what comes to mind well. You know one thing that <hes> i discussing another paper <hes> with a colleague ambassador daniel freed call democratic defense against this information. Just bring a plug out there. <hes> is this notion that first and foremost democracies and we can start with europe in the united states but of course it should be expanded to low bowl. We'll <hes> democratic countries. <hes> need to come to the table and come up with again starting with a set of norms and principles and it shouldn't just be governments involved in this because this is not a problem. It's going to be solved just by policy loan. <hes> it may sound cliche but this is a whole of society question shen and what that means is that you have to bring the social media and tech companies to the table. You have to have civil society at the table exactly because <hes> will you mentioned chris that democracies don't work top down way thus cod authoritarians democracies work best from bottom of the optimize were slower but the often also means that we're in the long-term more resilient and so we need to start thinking about it in this whole of society <hes> kind of mentality and one thing that we propose in the paper i mention is at least in the information space we can start there because most people have an everyday experienced with that through their social media the we should think about setting up a counter disinformation coalition that could look a lot like isis coalition for example because the threat is is that syria's <hes> it may seem less urgent than the threat of isis of course but in the long term it can have much more dire consequences and the very core in our democratic societies before we wrap up our conversation. I'd like to conclude with our final segment called what we're reading where we discuss what's at the top lavar respective reading lists and mike recommend to our listeners lena. What's on your list well.

"I'm your host christopher walker vice president for studies and analysis of the endowment recording studio in washington d._c. And i'm your co host shot the colossal senior director talknet international forum for democratic studies over the past few years policymakers in public audiences have begun devoting more attention to the ways in which powerful anti liberal relaxers are exploiting technology driven changes to today's information landscape in this episode will explore how authoritarian governments are devoting immense resources sources to improving their capacity in this arena as a means both to consolidate power at home and project influence far beyond their borders. Although authoritarian teheran regimes the world over are adopting such approaches to stand out as leaders the russian and chinese authorities alike have used new communications technologies to deepen their ability to manipulate the public discussion using these technologies both have emerged important incubators for the development of modern forms of censorship for for its part. The chinese party state is on the leading edge of this effort to deepen control moving with great speed and no meaningful checks on its ambitions to implement a comprehensive apparatus for policing political discourse in the democracies at least until now there's largely been a failure of imagination to recognize the growing global implications of the rapidly advancing digital prowess of the authoritarians many analysts have covered these trends from the perspectives of national security and economic it competition that relatively few of considered the implications for human rights and political freedom for this reason. We're delighted to welcome to the show one such expert who has been very thoughtful in this regard alina polyakova the david rudenstine fellow for foreign policy at the brookings institution here to discuss digital authoritarianism emelina. I'd like to start alluding looting to an article you wrote last november <hes> on russia and its ambitions in the technologies fear and a in particular you noted that <hes> there may maybe some real obstacles to russia developing its its abilities in the tech sphere among other reasons as a result of the public corruption poor rule of law and an oppressive <hes> regulatory environment <hes>. How should we see this. Will they be limited in pursuing their objectives to to curb dissent or will they simply invest in what they think is most important and therefore make real advances. Well thank you for that question. Chris and thank you <hes> shanty for <hes> <hes> hosting me on this fantastic podcast today so speaking directly to your question craps about russian future capabilities in new and emerging technologies space as i think we'll become quite obvious is russia looks like it's ten feet tall but it's not and what i mean by that is in the russian economy. Emme is about the size of spain's country. That size is a huge disparity. It's not really projected to grow economically. Foreign direct investment is is not likely to increase because of some of the factors you mentioned the difficulty of doing business the public corruption etc in terms of a._i. Startups russia really lags behind the rest of the world and if we nearest darlie lucon valley most of us find russian-speakers there and there's a reason for that because people that have great it skills and many many russians do have very good technical skills can find work elsewhere so thanks for those reasons we can expect that russia will continue to fall behind especially countries like china and when that comes to the government's own desire to emulate what the chinese have been doing certainly in terms of social surveillance and digital authoritarianism at home. They are already deeply deeply limited. They been doing certain things and ad hoc basis the chinese they have not been able to be strategic so as a result what they're able to do is not so much filter information meanings of the chinese do <hes> they're able to censor information before the populations even able to see it in the russian case. They're not capable of doing this because they lacked the ability you to process that much data but they are increasingly doing is monitoring and surveilling <hes> what citizens are talking about online whether text into each other over the phone phone and they're doing this through a variety of intimidation means including a quite a intimidating repressive legal structure. That's been slowly forming under the president putin and i i think in that respect it seems that <hes> while china is operating. Maybe at a unique level in this space and perhaps it isn't <hes> quite the right frame of reference for for russia's ambitions when one looks <hes> from the point of view say ten years ago of some of the things that <hes> russia has done despite the fact it's been under sanctions and it's had a weak economy and it has all the features that you described. It's actually proven to be quite quite active internationally and so should we underestimate <hes> given the fact that this the authorities in russia which really have no meaningful checks on their decision making <hes> that they won't be purposeful investing the limited resources they have in areas. I think are most important. I mean that that's exactly exactly the key point <hes> you know just because they have certain constraints and limitations many of those financial resources when we think about the the kremlin strategic intent abroad odd again. This is where russia differs from china russia's strategic contend the government strategic intent is to try to undermine <hes> any countries that sees as potential competitor's and of course from the kremlin's perspective that is the democratic west first and foremost and so we've seen russia again unlike china use of these new technologies these new tools to try to undermine western democracies and why are they doing. This again makes perfect sense from their perspective. If you're a country that has limited resources but you see you're so-so slipping and falling behind. You'll do what you can that is most low cost and high impact to try to stay day ahead or at least catch up or at least push everybody else down just a little bit so if we look into the future what i expect and what my research has been suggesting is is there were going to see the kremlin investing more and more limited resources specifically into these asymmetric threats meaning <hes> using a._i. Driven adamant technologies as a form of foreign influence operations. You know just a pickup on this. So much of the current conversation has been around china. Ed's artificial intelligence capabilities that you've written that artificial intelligence has the potential to hyperpower russia's use of disinformation referring to the intentional spread at a false and misleading information for the purpose of influencing politics and you also say that democracies are ill equipped to respond to this. Can you elaborate what you mean on both points so at this point. I think many people are aware of the term deep fakes <hes> but this storm is relatively new and i do wanna talk. A little row with that is because that's really what i'm talking about when i'm talking a._i. Powered disinformation so of course a is a neutral tool. You could says the dual use tool ominous multi-layer layer reserved for shaw intelligence rex referring to whole suite of various technologies that we'll have both positive negative consequences for society's basically every single sector her <hes> but i think it's really important to understand how this new technology in the suite of new tools will also be used for me by militias actors <hes> to try to pursue <hes> the kind disruptive foreign policy john the russians have been pursuing for some time so specifically <hes> when when it comes to russia's usa v i n deep fakes defects are manipulated audio and video content but they're not like photoshop auto shop right at people often say well. You know we've had in manipulation of images for a long time. We've had people doctrine pictures of photoshop doctoring videos and various other ways but right now. Those kinds of manipulations are very easy to detect software that can do that. We have some artificial intelligence tools that can do that very quickly. Fix a whole new level of audio video and image manipulation there are they are generated which means it's not manipulated you did. You're not taking an existing image. Doctoring actually producing a brand new image brand new audio brand new video based on a ton of data on these new artificial official intelligence algorithms can process very very quickly and currently we don't have the technical response meaning were not able to detect act the this kind of video audio manipulation. If you think about what's on my mean for disinformation. I think the implications are quite like profound. You know we can see a video of a world leader making offensive remarks for example <hes> and that could spread viral on twitter on social media all the other platforms and we can debunk him because they know you know <hes> president trump didn't say chelsom urkel density that but the damage is usually done because it's like playing a game of whack them all and i think this is the new challenge there were going to face increasingly over the next two to three years and one thing that you've you've written about which i think is quite fascinating is you've highlighted. The fact that the kremlin has focused its efforts already over the past many years on a tactic of moscow fca and <hes> that this is something that predated the machine learning era. Could you talk doc little bit about this concept and why you think that this will be dramatically enhanced by machine learning so thank you for bringing some rushing into the conversation and none of those great <hes> so the term you used muscular fca <hes> loosely translated into english basically refers to tactics tactics of military deceit so this was something that was often you love to news in the soviet era <hes> so for example you try to sort of ruse your enemy to to make them think that your forces are at one place in fact in another place it can take the form of things like actually making fake blow up tanks airplanes <unk> airplanes missiles so that from satellite images adversaries might see that you have a tank in one location with us actually a false the you know misleading purposely misleading <hes> way of trying to deceive so these are all tools all taxes around for a very long time to try to destabilizer enemies position mislead them various ways but the new digital tools there were discussing actually in the twenty first century version of that on what i mean by that is when you see just some the russian disinformation campaigns we've seen already you saw russian trolls masquerading as americans as europeans operating many accounts <hes> setting up these networks on twitter amplify false content to miss exactly to mislead scene and deceive people and when we see in russia's in fact it is the russian ministry of defence has taken the lead on artificial intelligence capabilities season development <hes> so squarely <hes> the russian government seized as much as part of its military arsenal and i think that's important to understand that from the russian perspective <hes> you know things like disinformation new forms of information warfare a. i. powered information warfare is part and parcel of his bar military a strategy that goes very much in line with long tradition of trying to deceive your enemy mislead enemy misguide your enemy in various ways. You've you've you've raised how these approaches and methodologies have been developed at the domestic level one of the wrinkles that were confronting in an era of globalization -sation and where our political speech and political discourse is now <hes> integrated so seamlessly especially through the open platforms that have emerged <hes> from the west coast of the united states and in other settings <hes> and this is where this activity that you just described as happening so could you talk a little little bit about how these domestically developed capabilities through trial and error experimentation by by incubating them have now been diffused beyond russia's borders. It seems just about everywhere now well. That's right again you know from the russian precise also a business component component here. I i do wanna make that clear. So now we see a lot of companies. That look like p._r. Firms allow them happen to be rushing but you can go online. Look this up. I don't really want to advertise them <hes> <music> but you can actually buy a hundred thousand twitter accounts. <hes> twenty verified facebook accounts. You can buy a g mail accounts to step maratha vacation included <hes> they'll even the age of the accounts allow these companies will try to take over old accounts have been abandoned and then caserta zombie fly them if you will and turn them towards a different purpose and they'll tell you this account is one year old is account as five years quite sophisticated <hes> but the the point is that it's very cheap so we see now is that from the russian trial and error of trying to influence manipulate democracy especially running elections but not just just around elections. We see others learning from this. I you know we see countries like iran. Perhaps north korea certainly china. I think at some point point will enter this space as well any aspiring authoritarian can basically buy a package now of you know however many bots on twitter <unk> have many trolls and accounts and pages on facebook and launched their own influence information campaign aimed at the domestic audience or the foreign audience audience so we see this package of information manipulation tools now diffusing across the world and and do you want to call it when other things we were talking about going to the export of digital authoritarianism from from countries across asia one thing that we're talking about earlier this this notion that the russians are falling behind the you have certain limitations constraints and the resources that's all true but if we look at the world you know there's no other country looks looks like china right a very fast growing wealthy incredibly technically capable authoritarian regime but there are many countries countries that look a little bit russian some sense resource poor <hes> not very centralized run more like a kleptocracy than you know hard hard to tell the charity dictatorship and what that signals the technologies the russia's develop for its own specific purposes at home. He's monitoring technologies actually much compatible with the rest of the aspiring authoritarians who face similar constraints as the russians do so i think for that reason as a big market for the russians to export these surveillance tools because they are cheaper because they who have higher impact and frankly because most countries aren't china you mentioned earlier that <hes> we don't have the technological response to some of these emerging technologies including <hes> deep fakes in the artificial intelligence context but it also it seems like we don't have the the norms and the accountability to deal with so even if we were to develop the technical response how would we you get to the point say in the democracies to know how to use these what the boundaries are because it seems to me at least maybe you can speak to the selena right now the the discussion around a._i. And how it's applied is either coming from the military side or from the commercial side which is really driving the development of a._i. But there's very little talk at least relatively speaking in terms of the norms that should shape the use of of these new terminologies that that's right..

"Too often very attractive a lot more attractive than the girl's own hair. What we have is a situation where women are turning men's heads. Rabbi Menachem is from the orthodox community collectively known as five towns on Long Island. And this is just one example of many such pronouncements. In fact, half a mile away from Zelda hair is Jewish all girls. Private school knows Menachem a year and a half ago. The rabbi who runs the school sent a letter to parents, outlining new standards of modesty with a contract to sign. These standards weren't written for the girls attending the school. The for the parents, mostly the mothers. It said they shouldn't wear bright nail polish or leggings or denim. But one item on the list was underlined a mother's Shadl should not exceed the shoulder blades. I have had rabbis who asked me to like short in my way. This is the Dina miles known by her fans on social media as flatbush girl Edina is part of a new wave of orthodox influencers, and has criticised ultra orthodox rabbis for tightening restrictions on what women should do say. And where there are spaces where longer wigs are very like are considered slutty. I think they felt like I was an easy target today. Dna has over forty five thousand followers on Instagram where she can often be probably seen rocking a long lustrous shade. All I think just being in the public eye. Just put me in a position like in the spotlight where the criticism was directed to me a lot and like social media bridges the gap between all different kinds of sex with within orthodox Judaism in conservatives and reform. And getting backlash from people and their opinions based on where they come from. And what the understand is a modest female, a lot of ultra orthodox rabbis. However, have a fundamentally different take on female modesty. And they cite the Torah. But Sarah Rudolph says it's not that simple. She's one of a handful of Jewish women to earn the equivalent of a master's degree in Torah studies. She says Jewish law regarding shades isn't clear because in the Torah. There's no there's no I that says married women must cover their hair. Wait what? Yeah. The idea that married. Women must cover their hair is really just inferred from a passage in which a priest confronts, a married woman suspected of adultery and uncovers her hair. What did this woman cover her hair with and most importantly, why the Torah doesn't answer those questions leaving rabbis to grapple with them ever since when is in the sixteenth seventeenth centuries. Started writing about league. And trying to figure this out. And you know, where exactly a week would fall in the scheme of acceptable headcovering or not the wigs. Didn't look like they do today their views might be different. If they knew that we have these gorgeous human hair wigs that you can't tell that look better than the original hair or perfectly styled nowadays each congregation comes up with its own set of rules about what's acceptable. But some ultra-orthodox see the mere existence of shops, like sell the hair and their customers as a threat. A lot of the modesty restrictions Cobb from the rabbis other battle elder what took control their women. That's at the end of the day. There's no way to put it one of those rabbis is rabbi Gherardi who runs the all girls school that prohibited. Mothers from wearing long wigs in a letter to parents. He didn't mince words referring to the new modesty standards as a campaign aimed at creating a ripple effect in the community at large. I called an Email the school several times, but never got a response with ironic sell the tells me is. That long natural wigs might actually be making orthodox Judaism more appealing to women. I get Todd's of women. And this is what makes me the happiest who tell me that they've stopped covering their hair or lever covered their hair before we actually inspire them to rethink it. Because of our approach at that to be is really something that I will always hold their when it comes to shade the options for Jewish women today are pretty mind boggling, they can look better than your natural hair. They can even be made from your natural hair. Researchers at MIT are currently developing three d printed hair. I wonder what Torah scholars would have to say about that. The one thing it seems they still can't do is to shield anyone from judgment for the world. This is Alina Simone in New York. Sure. We should never. That's true. Two. We've got a.

"From students grandparents with some well targeted wining. And dining parents at these schools, typically preschool or kindergarten through grade twelve have long been hit up with request to donate. But grandparents until more recently have been eight less tapped resource. It's a story by Wall Street Journal, contributing reporter Alina dick Alina, what's up here. Private schools are really looking towards the grandparents to help with donation, and they're doing it in very interesting ways. And really engaging the grandparents to participate more in the school activities. One thing I couldn't get past with you open the story with the shocking number of tuition of like twenty eight thousand dollars a year for kindergarten some school, right? Kindergarten starts and some schools at twenty thousand dollars but typically somewhere in the twenties. Wow. All right. So how do you get grandparents involved and get them interested in willing? Well, some some of these schools are hosting events for grandparent's, and it allows them to meet their own network, and really, you know, feel like they're part of their school and being honored rather than events where parents are inviting grandparents. Okay. So I think the one school you've referenced one of the schools you reference was in Maryland. And like the head of the school flew to Florida to host a dinner or something. Yeah. There's a there's a school in Maryland there. They realized that a lot of parents are actually ending up retired at Boker a ton though. The head of the school flies there every year or nearly every year to make the ask of donations and host a dinner. Wow. We're speaking with Wall Street Journal contributor Alina, dick. Her piece is called grandma. My school wants your money and is talking about how private schools are hitting up grandparents for donations. So how much is the school trying to get per year? For example, when tuitions like twenty eight thousand dollars, it strikes me that the the kids who go there probably fairly well off what what are they using the money for the schools are using the money for different projects day, typically private schools have to fill a twenty percent gap between tuition and their need. So grandparents are still a very very small part of that. So they're gifts this year. The average was six hundred. And fifty one dollars. So it's it's still fairly small, but it makes a to school, then they're, you know, they're China and hate them to give more and that number is going up. I think you said, right? That numbers going up slightly so three years ago. It was about five hundred sixty five dollars in total donations four last year through about nine hundred schools. The figure was forty two point five million. So those numbers add up across the different schools. I think you referenced that this particular generation of grandparents they're not in great financial shape yet. They're finding the money or the time somehow. Yeah. They're they're not a great financial shape. But there's still plenty of apple grandparents who do give and some of the schools say that they even pay tuition that time. So it really varies, but definitely finding the money to participate and to give parents could their grandchildren. We Selena Wall Street Journal, contributing reporter Alina district the twenty eight thousand dollars a year kindergarten, by the way is the Charles E Smith Jewish day school in Rockville, Maryland, twenty eight grand for kindergarten thirty minutes after the hour.
