"Right, let's strip it down and dive right in. Alvin Toffler is a very well-known futurist made a profound observation when he said the illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who can not read or write, but those who can not learn, unlearn and relearn and a 150 years ago, Charles Darwin said, it is not the strongest of the species that will survive. You know, people make that quote. Oh, it's the strongest the species of the survivor. That's not what Darwin said. What he said is it's not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent. It is the most adaptable to change. So how can you? How can I? How can we develop fast adaptation? Well, that's where we're going. We're going to find out together because our guest today is Rebecca Costa. She is a highly acclaimed technology and science futurist, Rebecca's Rebecca Custer's landmark work has been heralded by global thought leaders in innovation, business around the world. She has been featured in The New York Times. The Washington Post, newsmax, USA Today. Some San Francisco Chronicle and other leading publications. She is the preeminent global expert on the subject of fast adaptation and the recipient of the prestigious Edward O Wilson, biodiversity technology award. Rebecca reveals how AI and predictive analytics holds the key to solving dangerous and systemic issues and offers unique scientific perspective on the headlines of the day. Her first book was called the watchman's rattle. It's a radical new technology in this radical new technology of collapse. The book was a runaway international bestseller. And a follow-up book is titled on the verge. It was introduced in 2017 again to massive critical acclaim shooting to the top of Amazon's number one new business releases. So ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands.

"I'm an executive producer with Howstuffworks and I heart radio, and I love all things Tech and once upon a time gather around Children. There was a company that was so closely tied to the idea of connecting to the Internet that for some people, it was synonymous with the Internet itself. I'm talking about America Online or a O. L. Which is still around. But we're talking about the early days and a well grew into a giant force of a company. It was part of a merger that many people have described in the wake of that merger as being the worst deal in the history of tech mergers. So we're gonna look at the history of this company and where things are today, so in this episode will look specifically at how that company came to be and how it grew in the early years. Our story concerns several co founders frequently. If you look at stories about a A well they'll talk about one of these co founders over all the others, but they are very Important each and every one of them. So first we have William F. Von Meister, who's founded a startup that would give birth to a O. L he would not be part of a well itself. But oil would grow out of a company that maester had built. And the co founders would include three men who worked for this startup. The startup was called Control Video Corporation. Those three men were Steve Case, Mark Saref and Jim Kimsey. William F. On Meister was born in New York City. He his father had worked for the Zeppelin company, infamous. For being the company that would build the Hindenburg airship, the one that burst into flame and gave birth to the Oh, the humanity line. Von Meister was born on February 22nd 1942. He attended private schools, and he went to Georgetown University, but he never graduated. Despite that he was able to enroll in the master's degree program for business over at American University. And, upon graduating, he founded many startups and one of those was a tech company called Control Video Corporation, which I'll get to in just a moment. But first, let's talk about some of these other founders. James Verlyn Kimsey was born on September 15th 1939 that would make him the oldest of the co founders, who would create a Oh well. He also attended but did not graduate from Georgetown University. So He and my sister had that in common. He completed his education at West Point Academy, however, he became an airborne Ranger. In fact, a decorated one he served three combat tours, two of which were in Vietnam. And after the war, he began purchasing or opening bars and restaurants in the Washington D. C area became a very successful businessman. And he was brought over to control Video Corporation to serve as a manufacturing consultant. During some troubled times. Control Video Corporation did not have a long history, but it certainly had a colorful one. Mark Sarah, who was one of the other co founders, He was born on May 5th 1948 in Austin, Texas. He attended the University of Texas at Austin. He earned degrees and computer science and mathematics. And then he would go on to enroll in graduate studies at M I T and he earned a master's degree in electrical engineering and computer science in 1974. He took a job at Telenet Communications Corporation, which in 1975 would become the first packet switched network available to the general public. You could think of. It is one of the early backbones of the Internet. So he was in early early on on the days of the Internet before most people even knew what such a thing was. Decades before they knew about it. In fact, and this was in the era when the protocols for data transmission across the Internet were still being hammered out. Sarah would work for several tech companies over the next few years, eventually moving over to control video corporation. Steve Case was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1958, Steve and his brother, Dan, We're entrepreneurially minded, even at a young age. Their stories about him on his brother, operating a little juice stand in Hawaii or selling greeting cards or seeds door to doors, Children. Steve would attend Williams College in the late seventies and early eighties, he would graduate 1981 with a degree in political science. After graduation, Steve worked in the marketing department of Procter and Gamble, and he later went and worked for Pepsico, specifically working as a head of marketing over at Pizza Hut released a new executive of marketing over at pizza. But after that his brother Dan introduced him to the founders of Control Video Corporation over at C. E s. Steve landed a gig with Control Video Corporation, which was doing something really interesting. A really interesting business model that would actually set the stage for America Online many years later. Now, another element I need to mention before I get into what Control video corporation was doing was a book that Steve Case had red when he was a college student. He thinks it was sometime around. 1979 is a book that was written by a guy named Alvin Toffler, and it's called the Third Wave. In that book. Toffler describes a world in which computers would form a new communication platform, a new revolution, a technological revolution akin to the Industrial revolution. And it would allow for new, digitally oriented communities. Essentially, he was talking about the sort of thing we would see in various Internet communities like forums, things like that. Case did not have an engineering background or a programming background. But he thought this idea was really compelling and it would become an important part of his vision. Once he joined This company. So we now know are major players, which really comes down to Steve Case Jim Kimsey and Mark Sarah if Von Meister is important, but he was not part of the trio that would go on to found the company that becomes a well So what the heck did this control Video Corporation do? Well, I didn't know very much about this when I started my research for this, which is funny to me because I've talked about Atari. Lot and their their business was deeply tied to Atari. And yet somehow I had never come across this or if I had I had forgotten about it Control Video corporation. Had created a product called Game Line for the Atari 2600. And again I had never heard of this thing game line. Was a cartridge of very large, misshapen cartridge. It didn't look like the video game cartridges you would typically get if you want to play a game of Pac Man or pitfall. But you would plug this cartridge into Atari 2600, and it would extend far out of it because it was so big. And it had a port in it in which you could plug a phone line. An old, hard lined phone connection to sew this cartridge was part modem and parts storage device. Uh, so you and plug it through the normal cartridge port. It also had a battery that you had to plug in. They had to put a nine volt battery into this game line cartridge itself. And then, uh, plug it into your phone line..

"How much do i need air. So air is the most important thing. Okay okay. now let's look at the human body. Well we have. The blood system was distributes. The food of our system which we digest. And that's a whole topic in itself. But we have this lymphatic system at three and a half times so the exhaust. The removal of toxins is three and a half times more important than what we're burning for food. Well that's interesting so detoxification is obviously more important than the diets that we because it's not how well the diet is. It's can we detox from the diet that we're currently eating and the environment from which we find ourselves in holy crap go interesting enough. When you look at eastern philosophy which i have studied extensively. The breath starts not with the inhale with the exhale and that that is the x. Hail of the carbon that builds up inside the body in the inhalation of the oxygen inside the body. So i began. Then i went on to okay. Well we'll what type of food should i eat right. We got to. We've so after the other thing was is. I realized this if you take a person and put him in a bed so. My sister was very muscular. Strapping extra like unusually strong and muscular woman and very good athlete. But when they put her in the bed she wasted away very quickly Also the human body means resistance so it needs to be challenged needs physicality as soon as you put anybody put me if you cast. You see how quickly those muscles at your will. The muscles found out later that the muscles are really electrical pumps for internal organs. The movement of her muscles chargers are internal organs. Wow that's interesting. So then what do we need from food. Well i said well what is house this universe building so i had an a pension for physics. I was good at physics. And when i looked at chemistry and physics and chemistry both and when i looked at chemistry i saw that they would round out these equations. That didn't match up. They would just pull in stuff to make the wait a second if i did that and then go to jail. And how can i use this. As my methodology it offers a certain around here. So i said let's go with physics will in physics. Everything is a wave. A frequency and lights in light is both a wave and a particle and everything that we see here on the planet is condensed light at various forms of vibration frequency Therefore i if. I looked at food if i looked at energy. That and i think anything that you take into body whether that's light whether that sounds so what you see what you hear what you eat what you taste what you everything. This is all information. Food is information. Light is information sounders information and so went. Okay so i will look at light sunlight particularly and of course circadian rhythms. And all these sort of things. So then i went to optimize us. So then they get down to the nitty gritty. And that is if you look at the cellular function. What does everything in order to make bodies work. We need enzymes. We need probiotics. Those are the two workers the guys that cleaned the streets. Those are the guys that deliver the mail that run the power plant. We have a symbiotic relationship with probiotics. If we don't have these organisms inside our body and there's ten it's it's literally we have like ten times the amount of these organisms than we have cells in the body. We would all die. We'd have no immune system we'd start. Enzymes are the element. Catalysts that separate the difference between stones peop- plants and people. Back enzymes are twenty five thousand different enzymatic reactions catalysts that create all the transition her body and every species on the planet eats their food in a raw state except humans. We cook it. We kill the enzymes killed abroad ex. We have no workers to wipe out all the workers. What happens to the trash. The trash doesn't get taken out everybody's probably been through garbage strike somewhere and all of a sudden the trash rose up this house and is not good and then he's like right and bugs and rats and all of infection and disease all happens from garbage. Then i went. We also need vitamins. We need minerals. We need essential amino acids we need essential fatty acids and we needed burbs. Okay that's everything that makes the cell work better than i went. Well none of that works if you don't have the right attitude so we need mental beliefs and attitudes. What is your mental belief. And what is your attitude. But you do everything right. If you've got a bad attitude your and if you do everything right or you do everything wrong and have a great attitude. It's amazing what can happen. You can survive against all odds sometimes so there's very much a lot of power in our beliefs and then finally how do you sort it all out. That was what i called. Excetera education testing in coaching. Do tests on yourself. Which could be as simple as i could. Walk up the stairs this week. After a little bit draining. I can walk two sets of stairs or i can walk half a mile minute. That's as simple tests or it could be a nutrigenomics genetic testing of effort proportions. Or you know all that and then education is not if you look at the root world of education it means to induce to learn from within so you set up tests in your life. Whatever that happens to be. And then you learn from those tests and from that you'd be deployed things and to systematize all this. It's best to have a coach. it's better to have that is going to help guide you. What is the next thing that we deal with. So i called this. The awesome formula air water exercise. Sunlight optimizes mental attitude. Education intentionally makes the thing and gave away. Of course no. Give your clients. the course. it's on their eighty twelve weeks. Eighty four little five fifteen minute bit is they can have. And it's all the things. I learned over thirty years. And how i put this into a fifteen minutes or fifteen minute routine day that anybody can do and get all the benefits of that program fifty minutes really good and then they can expand on matter do whatever they want with it but it'll transform people's lives. I love that in in so true. And i i think i listen to you. Walk through this path and it's like that is so true because it's what i've done over the last seven years. It's you know it's trial and error which is educating myself on something. Applying it apply the test to the body and then listening to what the body saying. No is not good but couldn't agree more with when we're going down a road that we've not been down before. Coaching is so important. Because sometimes we've got those blinders on and we can't see what someone on the outside looking in concede for us. It was a beautiful book. Written in the seventies by future is called alvin toffler and it was called future shock And in that book he described much of the world that we live in today and extraordinarily detail and he said that the person of the futures greatest skill will be the.

It's like somebody has been smoking two packs of cigarettes for 20 years. You know, change happens like that. I think we live in that time. You know, it's it'll be interesting to see There's a lot of states. It seems like something new is added to the plate. You know, like the supreme in court everyday, right? So, like I believe in the individuals, and I was happy to hear that I think Barack Obama comments along that, she said in some of the protest marches, and it's hard to say what's protest March and what's you know, instigators and crime, but but I believe there are since since your protesters out there, he said. It's becoming very multi racial. So it's a pivotal time history. I really don't know how it's going to shake out, but I think it's good that people feel drawn to get involved. Absolutely, and the fact that you know we have the debates coming up which everyone's you know you're going to come in and watch it like a car crash. You almost have to watch it. It's just It's just how it is. That's you know, you know, I tell people I'm not going to watch. But I will just because I didn't want to watch the town halls, but I did. I didn't want to watch the Axios interview on HBO, but I did and it was worth it. I mean, it's eye opening, and I think it's for me sitting in media and looking at it from the perspective of growing up in media and having Children that now this is something that affects them. They're really paying attention and really watching and They have access to it everywhere so they could make their own viewpoints. And there's so many people out there that have a viewpoint. I think that's just kind of what makes our job. Interesting is you could put people on and it doesn't matter. I always tell people like Oh, I went on and I got hate mail, and I'm like, Well, that's just part of going on network TV now. You don't have a choice. When you go on network TV. You're never going to make everyone happy. You and I both know that. I mean, I recently did an interview two weeks ago three weeks ago. Now talking about kneeling. And I defended. I defended the players but also said that you know they're not. They're not. They're humans, but their not going to solve the problems. These owners who have billions of dollars could do way more than just shine excited from flashlight on it, So it's just interesting. We come back from break. I do want to jump in. To talking a little bit about PR in covert 19 and then talk about some misconceptions of public relations. So people haven't ideas we go through, so we'll have all this and a little bit more coming up with our guest, Tom Martin after the break..

"An I Heart radio and I love all things Tech and once upon a time gather around Children. There was a company that was so closely tied to the idea of connecting to the Internet that for some people, it was synonymous with the Internet itself. I'm talking about America Online or a O. L. Which is still around. But we're talking about the early days and a well grew into a giant force of a company. It was part of a merger that many people have described in the wake of that merger as being the worst deal in the history of tech mergers. So we're gonna look at the history of this company and where things are today, so in this episode will look specifically at how that company came to be and how it grew in the early years. Our story concerns several co founders frequently. If you look at stories about well, they'll talk about one of these co founders over all the others, but they are very Important each and every one of them. So first we have William F. Von Meister, who's founded a startup that would give birth tol he would not be part of a well itself. But a well would grow out of a company that my sister had built. And the co founders would include three men who worked for this startup. The startup was called Control Video Corporation. Those three men were Steve Case, Mark Serif and Jim Kimsey. William F. Von Meister was born in New York City. His father had worked for the Zeppelin company infamous for being the company that would build the Hindenburg. Airship, the one that burst into flame and gave birth to the Oh, the humanity line. Von Meister was born on February 22nd 1942. He attended private schools, and he went to Georgetown University, but he never graduated. Despite that he was able to enroll in the master's degree program for business over at American University. And, upon graduating, he founded many startups and one of those was a tech company called Control Video Corporation, which I'll get to in just a moment. But first, let's talk about some of these other founders. James Verlyn Kimsey was born on September 15th 1939 that would make him the oldest of the co founders, who would create a well. He also attended but did not graduate from Georgetown University. So He and my sister had that in common. He completed his education at West Point Academy, however, he became an airborne Ranger. In fact, a decorated one he served three combat tours, two of which were in Vietnam. And after the war, he began purchasing or opening bars and restaurants in the Washington, DC, area became a very successful businessman. And he was brought over to control Video Corporation to serve as a manufacturing consultant. During some troubled times. Control Video corporation did not have a long history, but it certainly had a colorful one. Mark Sarah, who was one of the other co founders, He was born on May 5th 1948 in Austin, Texas. He attended the University of Texas at Austin. He earned degrees in computer science and mathematics. And then he would go on to enroll in graduate studies at MIT, and he earned a master's degree in electrical engineering and computer science. In 1974, he took a job at Telenet Communications Corporation, which in 1975 would become the first packet switched network available to the general public. You could think of it as one of the early backbones of the Internet. So he was in early early on on the days of the Internet before most people even knew what such a thing was. Decades before they knew about it. In fact, and this was in the era when the protocols for data transmission across the Internet were still being hammered out. Sarah would work for several tech companies over the next few years, eventually moving over to control video corporation. Steve Case was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. In 1958, Steve and his brother, Dan, were entrepreneurially minded, even at a young age. Their stories about him on his brother. Operating a little juice stand in Hawaii or selling greeting cards or seeds door to door as Children. Steve would attend Williams College in the late seventies and early eighties, he would graduate 1981 with a degree in political science. After graduation, Steve worked in the marketing department of Procter and Gamble, and he later went and worked for Pepsico, specifically working as a head of marketing over at Pizza Hut, or at least on executive of marketing over at Pizza Hut. But after that his brother Dan introduced him to the founders of Control Video Corporation over at C S. Steve landed a gig with Control Video Corporation, which was doing something really interesting. Ah, really interesting business model that would actually set the stage for America Online many years later. Now, another element I need to mention before I get into what Control video corporation was doing was a book that Steve Case had red when he was a college student. He thinks it was sometime around. 1979 is a book that was written by a guy named Alvin Toffler, and it's called the Third Wave. In that book. Toffler describes a world in which computers would form a new communication platform, a new revolution, a technological revolution akin to the Industrial revolution. And would allow for a new, digitally oriented communities. Essentially, he was talking about the sort of thing we would see in various Internet communities like forums and things like that. Case did not have an engineering background or a programming background. But he thought this idea was really compelling and it would become an important part of his vision. Once he joined This company. So we now know are major players, which really comes down to Steve Case, Jim Kimsey and Mark Serif von Meister is important, but he was not part of the trio that would go on to found the company that becomes a well So what the heck did this control Video Corporation do? Well, I didn't know very much about this when I started my research for this, which is funny to me because I've talked about Atari. A lot and there, their business was deeply tied to Atari. And yet somehow I had never come across this or if I had I had forgotten about it Control Video corporation. Had created a product called Game Line for the Atari 2600 again. I had never heard of this thing game line. Was a cartridge, a very large, misshapen cartridge. It didn't look like the video game cartridges you would typically get if you want to play a game of Pac Man or pitfall. But you would plug this cartridge into Atari 2600. It would extend far out of it because it was so big. And it had a port in it in which you could plug a phone line and old, hard lined phone connection to sew. This cartridge was part modem and parts storage device. So you and plug it through the normal cartridge port. It also had a battery that you had to plug in. They had put a nine volt battery into this game line cartridges itself. And then plug it into your phone line..

"And people who have learned to manage that way. Now, need to relearn. There's. You know What's his name Forgetting the name now So bizarre reference him all the time and I used the quote all the time we integrated the principal into the manifesto Alvin Toffler. Eddie forget a name like Alvin, toffler like the world's most famous futures ease in one of his books said the illiterate of the twenty first century won't be those who can't read or write but those who can't unlearn relearn. It's true in so many areas you apply that to technological upskilling, for example, but it certainly applies to the way we lead you know. So it's like how do we unlearn the way we learned to lead from our boss when we were twenty one and relearn an entirely new way to lead an organization. You mentioned Alvin Toffler GonNa make you blush. Is, niece Marjorie listens to this podcast. I shouldn't have forgotten his name. I Love Toffler, and he in the third wave, he mentioned a place I went to work for called Cube, Q. U. B., which was the world's first two way interactive cable system. Capable Systems were all completely analog. His voice would really resonate right now. We are in future shock in many ways. Yeah. Yeah. I I kind of feel like others have used a similar sentiment, but it's like actually more like shock the now right? It's like. If the rate of change was such that it would induce future shock in one thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, right you know with change being exponential it's like so bad. Now, we can't even see past today. Sits it's crazy, right but it is the reality we live in. You and I came out of the agency space. So to speak and the space we were in. God very big to the point that really great companies like the one we worked for gobbled up and then got gobbled up again and now are unrecognizable I look back at some of the companies I worked for I can't really tell where they are right now or who owns the assets because there's been so much acquisition going on. I look at never normal and I think the myself. Is that GONNA? Be The death of really big companies I mean because big companies rely on a certain amount of status quo and get to achieve financial scale. You have to have a lot of control in place..

"Can you can see that. I can't now. Yeah they're trying to do something different than what is done or whatever. They're not thinking from their own strengths. Not Thinking from their own existence where they are now. And that's I mean that's crazy. Yeah now it is crazy when you said simple as that but of course is still going through. It doesn't feel like Oh it's frustrating. Yeah Yeah I mean they if they would sit still and okay. What are we already good at? Bic WHEN BIC was first created. It only made pens. Yeah Yeah and for armored probably almost three decades that's all they did and they hit a point in their history where they weren't expanding anymore. They're expansion was based on geography Spread from France to everywhere in the world and the way they expanded if you look at what they are now you know what what does big make now. Actually account that's narrators make martyrs raisins right. I didn't but how did they get larders? Razors will look at it for a second depends the only pens they sold originally when they started. They sold expensive pens. But at some point they realized that this plastic disposable cheap pen was the way to make a good business. And that's all they sold so when they shifted to the new things it was plastic. Disposable cheap things are box. They just made the box bigger. Yeah lava if it's out there and said Oh what can we do? That's different than everybody else you know. They might still be sitting in that room. Yeah what they did was look at the box they had and they said what could be out of this box. That would still fitness box. Well if we took away pens and just kept plastic cheap and disposable. You know love. It does most of the great innovative companies. That's how they work. Look at Apple. Yeah they didn't invent anything. Yeah you know who invented the mouse? Well I'm going to say an I've not only sees on land wasn't wasn't it wasn't an individual but the first company to have a mouse. Zeros Guy and The first the the icon user interface that apple uses xerox. Now I know what you're thinking Xerox may computers photocopiers. That anyway but. Yeah so I mean apple. DidN'T INVENT ANYTHING Steve. Jobs just had a really good knack for Senate it himself that they stole everything and yet a really good knack for finding figuring out what people wanted and making it the way they wanted exact and that was innovative enough to make the biggest company in the world. And that'll Dave my speak with think they'd be happy to be that innovative I briefly. Want to talk about your book. The innovation explosion. Say maybe the next few minutes just explain to us. What would people get from reading your book? The good my ever done gratitude start with good. Thank you get negative. Whatever dollars in their counter with but the book is two things? The book on the one hand lays out the training In a in a verbal way okay so people could go through it themselves without bothering to hear my voice or watch my videos which could be of great value to some people and the other thing that has is is a more philosophical approach to a lot of things we've discussed which is looking at the idea that came up already many years ago that we are heading for a time in which learning on learning relearning is the you know the most important skill. Interestingly Alvin Toffler never said what people think he said he was quoting Somebody else when he said The most famous quote from them book. But what he did mention is that. What would that quote was? Was that the that in the future The ability to learn will be the equivalent of literacy today. That'll be more important to know how to learn by yourself than to know how to read and write and you know if you think about. How important literacy actually is today than that saying a lot? Yeah he didn't say that he he wrote the quotas book from somebody else but did point out later. The book that this idea of learning learning as a as a skill is the skill of future is the thing that people need to learn how to do so the book maybe have gone a little bit off into the stands again but the book Looks at that that idea in place is actually written just before Kobe? So I've had to kind of. Hey girl how to restructure it. A little bit seems more obvious. Now looks at the idea of look. You need to learn this. Stop whether it's my system or somebody else's system whatever it is like you need to learn how to be flexible in your thought needs to realize that creativity is the ability to think differently for yourself. It's not something that you're going to get by wishing you have the same creativity people you can only create your own creation. You know it is a choice creation. It's it's something that you choose and make even five year old. We don't know what this is like because we don't have studied this but yeah I wonder what happens to a five year old when you start training them how to stay created because ultimately the creative expression they have to develop needs to be their own and we talked about a digit societies. You know ultimately they all start by teaching you the things you have to do. That are the same for everybody. But in the end it's it's a vision quest for yourself and how you fit into the whole and so the book is really about you know. How do you take what people are saying? Now about the way the world needs to go and apply it to yourself in order to be part of this coming. Perhaps coming faster than expected at Explosion of innovation being critical as scolded need you know and yet and yet we all were born with it and yet couldn't walk if we weren't innovators. Yeah Yeah so. The group looks those two things how here's a system that does work Generally why do you need this system? I'll have to say and I don't only say his just put out there but I will definitely read your book. Some of you mentioned Michael Healing Article At this idea of participating in this society that you're thinking about what you giving to that society rather than just taking and I think you cold the consumer culture of the produce a culture that I have to get through the struggle of rather than uncertain time to work through this will actually requi- us all working together in the contributing out the skills I think. Yeah very good really came to hear Michael about the song that is coming out coup kindness. Contagion he tells us about that. Yes Sir thank you for asking about that So we've as even innovation project. We found out about the United Nations. I put out a call at the beginning of April for artists or creators around the world to respond to certain messages that they had listed. And you know it's just a just sort of an open an open call. It wasn't really like you're going to win money or something but so they one of the messages was kindness contagion which we thought was really great phrase. Idee obviously being instead of a sickness. It's a contagion of kindness and I looked at open. Actually it has been used in the past but not a lot so it's an interesting an interesting sort of name to work with because it's not heavily used but it's also got some existence out there and so. I contacted a couple of musicians that I know in South Africa of used to music share. I know a lot of musicians and we started making the song which we want it from. The beginning TANABE South African but rather than African response to this call and yet really blew up. So we've got almost thirty right now.

"To learn who to listen to. They say listen to the scientists. Well why am I? Listen to you. get let me list scientists now by some bullcrap thing like not biased. Because you could if you really wanted to. Dan could find scientists on one side. I could find a scientists on the other vice versa. Like there's a real real scientists though and you find Bill Gates yere. So there's that's why these different news outlets like Fox. News won't parade out the same doctor that CNN does. Because they want. The doctors agree with their opinion. And there's an there's doctors and both sides. It had both at differing differing views on what to do. You know competent. But there's there isn't competent people everywhere. There's also there's also reasonable people like like bill and I understand right. Yeah so but there's the whole point is that like I mean. Element is example. Our governor is telling you what's essential what's not when he does something that's essential for. You might not be essential to him and vice versa. So yeah but that's the wrong way to go about that to say that it was essential to me is essential. That's not what you're saying is and I and I agree with you. That barbershops are probably something. We could say okay. Yeah that's probably safe enough. Business to reopen what other businesses. Like it okay. Very low occupancy. You don't have to have. They're not like rubbing each other okay but like bars nightclubs. Probably not going to re-open quite as quick as maybe the barber shops. So you can't say because barbershops everything you can't do that but but the example you're using our argue with you. Yeah like the nightclub that has the capacity of three hundred people in a small space. Yes so we're not. We're not bright club club. Doug like we're not gonNA open WIG. We can't allow you to open because you're going to be too close. Maybe we can allow. Maybe we can modify. Maybe you can only have if your capacities three hundred. Which only that's fine but to your point to that nightclub owner it's still essential to him. Which is why I disagree with your point. Which is why does agree with your point. But he could but he can. He's not be given an alternative. He saying you gotta stay closed like he can't open for. Let's say three people in his huge nightclubs come and order drinks at a time obviously money. Yeah what what does that? The governor's or over reaching beyond their power for one. Nobody thought the American people shut down and they did it and now they're making it worse by extending new orders to people rather than be like. Okay we trust that you guys are still GonNa follow these guidelines instead. They're saying you cannot do this. Which is ridiculous. Yeah I mean there's guidelines could put out there for look every let's say let's just blanketed right. Every business can open but if there you can only have one person her twenty square feet of your this is your business. Let's just I'm just throwing random number just for the sake of so if if I'm nightclub owner okay. I can open. Maybe it doesn't make millions and may cost effective for me to open a five thousand square foot facility. That are you know bar that I have when I can only have whatever the number would be out know. I have one hundred people in their two hundred people. Maybe it doesn't make sense to open a nice stay closed but at least you're giving him a. He's has a choice right now. The business that that's just the nature of the business he's in maybe you could zoom zoom discotheque. We could do that. We could do little right now. You can do right now. Let's see what's going on these but you guidelines like those guidelines guidelines being set and then there's also people being told like you don't fit. You can't do this and I just think that's wrong. I just personally think that's wrong. Okay I understand how it could be unsafe if you open up the local bar. And there's every three feet and these people are basically spitting on each other. I know that I know that's unsafe. I get that it's going to be unsafe. But maybe tell that bar owner like look you have to these tools. GotTa be fifteen feet apart now. You don't have to open but you could open and have three stools fifteen feet apart and make a little bit of money for yourself like you shy. I'm not that we're GONNA talk about conspiracy. What Alvin Toffler Article? Bill last thing. Because I do have to. I do have to run here. You see the alien. Ufo picture that the government release like the pictures the one from the navy sublime maybe or blink. One eight released it like a year ago. I sent it out in the public like. Were you at on Aliens Interesting? Yes this is. We should have been talking about this earlier. You gotta come back on. Oh I I want to hope like my grandma. Mom Mom had a story that she swore like she said they were. She's fine back to host and a pilot came on the things that we have three objects outside of the way and then they were gone right so I've always believed in them and I don't think there has to be life. There's so many galaxies right. There's so much universe that we don't even know about who said there's not life somewhere else so some of the stuff like come on the do it really. WanNa trick it. That bad by showing this footage that the navy just released saying yes real. We don't know what it is people out there. Do you think men in black is a documentary that now one of the main issues is that there's no habitable planet within like some enormous amount of light years away where even if you're traveling the speed of light. It seems completely unreasonable. Anyone at every earth. That's one of the main. I think like astrophysical problems with aliens is that we have a narrow idea. Get a little narrow view there because it's uninhabitable for us. But maybe not for whatever's out there ours. Yeah but if you're technology's going the speed of light and there's still problems but we will cupboards. Another show Murphy was fun. We'll have you evacuate on. Here's a panelist. We'll get a bunch of guys and we'll get it deep into aliens in the next month but thanks dude any. Were any where people can follow up with you on the web? Do Care You guys. You guys can follow me at The morning brushback or coach Gambler. Perfect you you're the thank you for being here. We're GONNA sign off.

"Say i'm i'm going to donate a million i'm asking you whatever you can donate and we want to build a shelter and in the shelter we want to put in showers for all these people so that they can clean themselves bathroom facilities so they don't have to take a dump on the street maybe put in a kitchen so we can get them a warm meal once or twice a day and maybe some drug counselors if they want to be rehabbed why doesn't she do that it's literally right in the middle of our home and our district office because progressive sean is about spending other people's money not their own money this is sort of the cardinal rule with all of these folks and they're progressive policies think back to the reason rudy giuliani was elected mayor of new york in the first place is because of all the crime they are lenient when it comes to crime they're lenient when it comes to garbage literally and international affairs think of what they did was awry I mean, you know, the they go down this path of appeasing people all the time. And the world winds up or cities wind up with disastrous on their hand in this case. With all this garbage physical garbage. It's disgusting. It really it's the images. I saw this should not be in America. And when you look at the amount of money that they tax Californians Kaley thirteen and a half percent, income tax state income tax. Well that's on top of the forty percent. And now every rich city is angry that they're not getting the free subsidies and tax breaks that the smarter low tax states or no tax states. Never had the benefit of maybe that'll incentivize them to get rid of high taxing, Liberal Democrats, that don't fix problems. Anyway. Yeah. That's right. You know, they don't want the consequences of high taxes. They want the benefits of it the revenue coming in. They squander on who knows what because the city is falling apart of a deal with the consequences and here are the real consequences as you. There's an exodus out of California. All of my in laws family of, you know, nearly twenty people are leaving California to convict you. The lowest tax jurisdiction of Florida where you have your state income tax. They don't want that consequence. They sure as heck don't want the federal government to stop subsidising, their high state income tax, which is essentially, what was happening with state local tax deduction high-tech, liberalism, does work. It's proof is in the pudding. California's people flee at Texas into Florida. No is happening. And bigger and bigger ways. If you look at the nation's economy, twenty two percent of Americans say, it is excellent, the highest excellent rating ever for the economy forty nine percent say the economy is in very good shape. Seventy one percent total. For excellent and good. It's the highest total number of American voter attitudes on the economy and almost eighteen years, fifty two percent of Americans say they are better off financially today than they were in two thousand sixteen while twenty one percent say they are worse off. What do you make those numbers? And I know I don't think President Trump by name polls. Well, and is not really a poll lable president of that's term Jeffrey Lord just last night. The president was here in Pennsylvania. And I have to tell you that the kind of things you were just talking about is what's going to carry Pennsylvania, for him, again, a second time, and I remember I mean, I was by myself for the longest time it CNN until Kennedy came around, and I kept telling them Trump could win Pennsylvania. And they never believe me ever until until they call Pennsylvania for Trump. Yeah. Yeah. And finally, there was the evidence here, but the evidence was well insight, right, here, this place was littered with Trump signs, and it's going to happen again. Decisely because of things like this and last night, what he did was very smart. He went after Joe Biden who makes much being you know, Mr. middle-class, and he's really Brandon be abandoned, Pennsylvania, went to Delaware. That's exactly right. That is exactly right. And, and the Obama Biden administration abandoned, Pennsylvania, with economic policies quick break. We'll have more with Kaley mcenaney and Jeff floor the great one Mark Levin of the top of the hour as we continue. Listen, I you know, we all put things we want to give away to the curb all the time. Right. What kind of like a throwaway society Alvin Toffler of future shock? We throw a lot of good stuff away. And sometimes if you put good stuff on, on the curb you kind of get up in the morning. Well, somebody stole that old wait set. They didn't steal it was put up for pasture or that old couch. Somebody wanted that you wouldn't put things of real value. You wouldn't put your nicest tables, and chairs at the curve than somebody would be taking what they thought was something you throwing out for themselves. Well, the same thing when it comes to financial documents passwords. You don't put that out on your front curb. But if you use even public WI fi that is password protected, that's exactly what you're doing. They can get everything you send and receive. That's how good and a bad way, these these cyber thieves are now Norton secure, VPN, is virtual private network. It encrypt all your connections, even on public wifi. So.

"Steve case was born in Honolulu Hawaii in nineteen fifty eight Steve and his brother, Dan were entrepreneurial Lee minded, even at a young age their stories about him on his brother operating a little juice stand in Hawaii or selling greeting cards or seeds door to door as children Steve would attend Williams College in the late seventies and early eighties. He would graduate in nineteen Eighty-one with a degree in political science after graduation. Steve worked in the marketing department of Proctor and gamble. And he later went and worked for PepsiCo specifically working as a head of marketing over at Pizza Hut, or at least a an executive of marketing over at Pizza Hut. But after that his brother Dan introduced him to the founders of control video corporation over at CAS Steve landed a gig with control video. Corporation, which was doing something really interesting really interesting business model that would actually set the stage for America Online, many years later now another element. I need to mention before I get into what control video corporation was doing was a book that Steve case had read when he was a college student. He thinks it was sometime around nineteen seventy nine is a book that was written by a guy named Alvin Toffler. And it's called the third wave in that book Toffler describes a world in which computers would form a new communication platform. A new revolution. Attend a logical revolution akin to the industrial revolution and would allow for a new digitally oriented communities, essentially, he was talking about the sort of thing, we would see in various internet communities like forums and things like that case did not have an engineering background or a programming background. But he thought this idea was really compelling, and it would become an important part of his. Version once he joined this company. So we now know are major players which really comes down to Steve case, Jim Kimsey and Mark Saraf von Meister's important, but he was not part of the trio that would go on to found the company that becomes AOL. So what the heck did this control video corporation do? Well, I didn't know very much about this. When I started my research for this, which is funny to me because I've talked about Atari lot and their their business was deeply tied to Atari. And yet somehow I had never come across this. Or if I had I had forgotten about it control video corporation had created a product called game line for the Atari twenty six hundred. And again, I had never heard of this thing game line was a cartridge of very large misshapen cartridge. It didn't look like the video game cartridges you would typically get if you wanted to play a game of Pac. Man or pitfall, but you would plug this cartridge into Atari to a six hundred and it would extend far out of it because it was so big and it had a port in it in which you could plug a phone line and old hard lined phone connection to. So this cartridge was part modem and parts storage device. So you would plug it through the normal cartridge port. It also had a battery that you had to plug in. They had put a nine volt battery into this game line cartridge itself and then plug it into your phone line. And at that.
