Hollywood studios and Animal Kingdom have followed. But Disney World may not be able to reopen either of its two water parks until next March, about a year after they shut down. Company hasn't released any plans and park officials have said they need to get government approval before reopening either Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach, presumably under social distancing rules, including limited capacity and reservations required.

Inside a facility that could mass produce a COVID-19 vaccine
"Reported cove in 19 cases around the world has just topped 30 million. The World Health Organization says alarming rates of transmission can be seen again in Europe. CBS News correspondent Holly William's got rare access to one facility in London, where they're working to mass mass produce produce the the vaccine vaccine as as early early as as November. November. There There are are 36 36 vaccines vaccines for for covert covert 19 19 currently currently in in human human trials, trials, according according to to the the World World Health Organization, and we were given rare access to a facility here in the United Kingdom, where a vaccine could very soon go into production. This sterile production line could be mass producing a vaccine against covert 19 within weeks. Right now they're training stuff filling glass vials with water. They could start filling vials of a coded vaccine here as early as November. Maybe even before a vaccine has been approved, and that's because as soon as they get that final approval, they want to start sending it out to the public. These are unprecedented times and require unprecedented injuries and the world needs about 7.5 billion population to be covered, managing director of Walker at UK, Ravi LeMay told us his facility can produce up to 240 million doses of a new vaccine in a year. But if the vaccine they start producing here doesn't get approved for safety. They'll simply have to throw it out. Isn't a gamble isn't a gamble to start packaging up millions of doses of the vaccine before has that final approval. I won't say it again. Well, I would say this is investment in public in Oxford Vaccine, arguably the front runner in the race to stop the new virus, despite a recent pause in its trial will likely be produced here. The U. S government has given more than a billion dollars to the drug company behind it. AstraZeneca to secure at least 300 Million doses With the world's biggest vaccine manufacturer, which is based in India warned this week that production is not being wrapped up quickly enough. And it could take until 2024 to produce enough doses of vaccine to cover the entire world that CBS News correspondent Holly Williams and as of this moment, covert 19 has killed more than 198. 1000 Americans.

The US will ban TikTok and WeChat on Sunday. What happens next?
"So let's let's at the basics either way there's this band coming in place on Sunday on both tiktok talking we chat what does this mean? What's going on with this ban? Essentially what's going to happen is that starting on Sunday, you're not gonna be able to download we chat. Or tiktok from the APP stores. In the United States, we're assuming that that means all of the APP stores although a lot of these details are still very unclear but I would expect that you're not going to be able to access the APPs from the Internet after Sunday will you will be able to do is if you've already downloaded them, you'll be able to use them for a certain amount of time it's really unclear. How far this is GonNa go for tiktok. It's going to be the deadlines November twelfth for we chat it seems to be Sunday. So if you're using we chat, you're just kind of out of luck but it's GonNa be really interesting to watch how people respond to this and how it shakes out because we're talking about some of the largest social networks in the world suddenly being disrupted in a way we haven't really seen her before right in another less about. Let's focus bit on Tiktok as it is a viral sensation here there are tens of millions of users tiktok. What happened they're able to use it but the as interested no update software updates or no way to to to continue to maintain that APP is that is that what happens? Yeah. If you've been following the apple in epic saga. It's very similar. So. You know when when epic decided to break apple's APP store rules over payments thing essentially, what happened was that apple kicked the APP out of the APP store. So everyone who had already downloaded, it could play it but you couldn't download it new or get updates, and over time the APP stopped working as well as all the other ones because there were software updates that were new in that game new parts of the game they put out that you couldn't get. Tick talks obviously, not a video game, but I imagine that this is going to be what happens. We're GONNA SEE UPDATES come down and they'll probably try to maintain it as best they can so that people who already have it in the US can keep using it but eventually, if this doesn't get sorted out the APPS, just GonNa stop working. So let's roll back a bit. Why are these bands being put placed essentially this is all coming down to a national security conversation these. APPS are you have to think about it? These are some of the first APPs from China to really take off in the United States and I mean really take off and. I think that it's caused us to rethink about a lot of how we talk about the Internet in the last few years I started hearing a lot more about China's version of the Internet and our of the Internet and setting these two things apart. They've always been slightly different but there's now like a concerted conversation over this issue and what China is doing, and this is what led a little bit to this national security concern. Essentially, the government says, Hey, this is a Chinese collects date on Americans. It could be used by the Chinese government, which isn't factually wrong but there's zero evidence that that's happening and the company obviously would say that it isn't but. We're hearing these national security conversations and these these warnings without any actual evidence about what's going on. Yeah. It's important to note that the Commerce Department held a conference call the press this morning they were asked explicitly to offer concrete examples of the. Chinese government spying or taking advantage this data and Commerce Department did not provide examples and this is very similar to the situation that. Has Been Around Weiwei right always a big Chinese telecommunications provider. It also got banned earlier this year by the trump administration but there had been for years allegations of potential security concerns, but we've never seen any evidence of it. So it's it's one of those things where like. You. Kind of have to take the government on faith than the argument that that they are indeed doing the right thing in protecting us but it's Obviously, there's a lot of skepticism and a lot of uncertainty or unknowns with the situation. and. Let's be honest right. When it comes to international relations, the government doesn't have the best track record of being forthright with the American people and we have a lot of examples of that. So there's already broken trust here and I think that is part of why you see people constantly asking this question

Thailand braces for large anti-government rally
"Thailand is bracing for a large anti-government protests tomorrow. The Roddy. Shuttled to take place at university, which was the site of a student massacre decades ago and comes after weeks of demonstration's. The best attended was in the middle of August. When more than ten thousand people marched in Bangkok calling for Political Change, PA me-meeting learn how Students have no choice. We can only come out. We don't want to grow up and have kids ask us when the country was facing injustice for you doing. The protests started off largely as student movements. Different groups of young people around Johnson is the economist Southeast Asia correspondent. We've seen them spread actually in into high schools, and now they seem to be gaining traction among a large segment of the population. What can we expect from tomorrow's protests? We've got two different versions of what's going to happen tomorrow. The protesters' who are organizing the rallies. At Thomas, university anticipate fourteen thousand people coming the authorities are trying to poo poo that. And say you know perhaps it'll be half as many will show up even survey not taking any chances. There were also thousands of police who are being marshalled to keep the event in order, and we've just had actually the deputy minister who is extremely close ally of the prime minister is going to be running the operations into that sexually monitoring the rally. Marta who all these protesters and what's the back story how did they get started? There's been frustration building in Thailand for a number of years the current prime minister and many of his closest henchman seized power in a coup in two thousand fourteen and for while they promised that that would be elections but there wasn't actually one until last year and even when that election occurred the current time constitution ensure that. It wasn't really a level playing field for opposition parties who ran against pro-military potties and others who eventually came together in a coalition and one so that Prime Minister Pray Challenge Child at full McCoy leader could stay in power. So many ties were very annoyed that they had the liberties. Ko they waited many years for an election and then it wasn't savvy the first place and then on top of all that. A particularly, Popular Party led by a very charismatic young politician businessman who basic he got fed up with state of Thailand and decided to become involved in politics. The long. The short of it is that the Ponti Future forward was dissolved earlier this year in February, and that was when we first started to see some flashbulbs few street protests and anger starting to build about the current government. What the protesters want is, is it just the reinstatement of the party or something else I? Think the core protest is believed that this is all moved above. And beyond future forward, a lot of the platform and policies that future forward advocating for things that many of the press testers would like to advance in Thailand more freedoms. An end to harassing opposition activists to protest is also want to see parliament dissolved the crucially they know that dissolving parliament might not do much good until there is a new constitution of the protesters unified what they want. So. That is one particularly contentious issue in all of this, and that's the fact that some of the boldest protesters' have called for reform of the monarchy. The monarchy in Thailand is deeply revered. It's Tabu to to criticize the institution and indeed a less. Law provides up to fifteen years in prison for anyone to be in badly insulting the monarch the current monarch. King. Vajiralongkorn or Rama, the tents took over from his extremely popular father who died in two thousand sixteen and it's been a bumpy road since then as a result for the very first time pretesting and are openly criticizing some of the things that King Vigia along his dumb in particular, they are unhappy with the way in which he has poked crown assets in his own name and they are also unhappy about the fact that he has taken sutton important military units under his pulse no command and a lot of those stationed importantly right in Bangkok so how significant these protests the government. The fact that these protests have been growing since the middle of July slowly, but steadily ease programmatic and the longer they go on the bigger the headache this becomes the government, the students specific and not going away. They're not intimidated by the dozens of people who've been arrested for participating all leading, Maranda? What are the army and the government doing about this? So far it seems to have been a case of wait-and-see. We've seen a few dozen protesters arrested particularly the leadership, but we haven't seen any really tough crackdown and given Thailand's. Of cracking down on student protests, quite bloody manner, and in particular here I'm thinking of events in the nineteen seventies. One Fair on love People's minds is. What happens when the establishment runs short on patients with all of this, it's difficult to say precisely what will happen but the chances all dramatic intervention I think. NEVA'S ERA in Thailand Verandah. Thank you. Thanks so much.
FASA Cycle To Open on October 1st - Here's What To Do
"About a week ago through October the first the facet. Has a planned outage? This allows for the new updates to load in the system and it will open on October first. Now, the fastest cycle lasts twenty one months from October one before the school year begins and it closes on June thirtieth of that year and each year their system changes and processed guidelines that can cause issues when logging in or when processing your paperwork, and that is why I always recommend waiting about a week or two because the irs website might be experiencing some technical issues and you really want them to work it out. there is no big rush to log on October one or even. October. Second to do anything the money's not going to run out in a day or two and I want to talk about what you can do two things to really important things you can do during from now until you complete your Fassa that will help get you moving in that direction. So I know a lot of times families here that you know the money is on a first-come-first-served basis and that is true. the funds that the schools received they allocate based on you know as their students submit their applications and acceptances or made. However, they're not gonNA run out of money in a week or two. So waiting is always in your best interest because. You know in the past, there have been issues with the data retrieval toll when the federal government went to a different shorter tax form, I believe that was twenty eighteen there were issues or with the two thousand eighteen cycle. So you just want them to work those issues out and you don't WanNa be the Guinea pig you don't want them working out on you so. No rush you know maybe put on your calendar for October fifteenth or even October thirtieth but no rush. So. Here's what you can do. Instead two big things. Number One, really start to gather all your documents. So everything in place ready to go so that you're just in all the data. So one of the first things you want to do is get your F- Essay I D, and you can create that at f. s. a. ide- dot E dot go the have this link in the show notes. And both the student and the parent will need to create their own FSI ID and you keep it private because it's your electronic signature. and you will use this. Your student will use this for all of their years of school and parents. You'll use the same idea for your current student and if you have other students after this student who use that same day. Also make sure you have all social security numbers, driver's license license numbers and alien registration numbers if you're not a US citizen. Now you'll want to gather your W. Twos, federal income tax returns, any other records of income earned. And for the parents income you want to have the most tax return. So for this cycle for the twenty, twenty, one, twenty, two, you're going to have your twenty nineteen tax return. So just having on hand even though you will most likely be using the data retrieval toll there's some cases where you shouldn't use it, but if you're using it but it's still just really good to have it on hand as well as ten forty forms If. The Student Is Independent Bank statements and records of investments and just records of untaxed income, and this leads me to my second thing that you should be doing and that is no the schools you're you're planning to apply to so. Begin to think through the list of schools you're interested in attending. sure. You add colleges you're considering even if you haven't applied yet most likely students have not applied by the time you know it's still September. So most likely applications are not in. An for many students are still waiting to sit for either the sat or act. So you know that application may not be in yet. or You may not have heard back. But even if there's a slight chance that you'll be attending, that are applying to that college you one to listed on the fast form you can always remove it later if you decide not to apply. But if you wait too long if you're waiting until the this spring or later to at a school, you could miss out on financial aid. So my number two point is really to think through your list to build your college list and get those schools are on your list on your essay on the Fassa form. So that they receive your results electronically when you do submit. To help them to determine the type of a that you would receive. Okay. Now, you can list up to ten schools at a time on the form if you're applying to more than ten schools, this is what you do. So you'LL WANNA give it like a week or two be a week or you know for the school to retrieve the data and pull it off, and then what you do is go log. Back in Click on the homepage log into your F s you're facil- account and you'll be given the option to make corrections. What you'll do is just remove a few of the schools on your list and then add the additional schools hit submit and then it sends it out again to those particular schools. So again, the two things that you can do while you wait and don't rush for that October one deadline. I'm number one, gather all your documents that you're going to need all your supporting documents and number to really think through the school list because just completing it that step one but part of that completion process is knowing where's the information going and what what I don't want to Excuse me what I don't want to have happen is you know students kind of complete it and forget about it. In terms of the later lying for school maybe November or December and forget Oh, I forgot to add that school to the list. So really keep a list of the schools at you're planning to apply to and make sure that they are on the list on the fast form.
Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown
"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families. Alison despite everything. Shana Tova.
Trump downplays legacy of slavery and embraces white supremacy
"Donald Trump intensified efforts to appeal to his core base of white voters on Thursday by downplaying the historical legacy of slavery in the United States and blasting efforts to address his stomach racism as divisive. The president's comments marking the two hundred and thirty third anniversary of the signing of the constitution amounted to a defense of white culture and denunciation of Democrats the media and others who he accused of trying to indoctrinate school children and shame their parents whiteness. He also argued that America's founding set in motion the unstoppable chain of events that abolished Slavery Secured Civil Rights defeated Communism and fascism and builds the most fair equal and prosperous nation in human history. But he did not mention the two, hundred, forty, six years of slavery. In America including the eight thousand nine years it was allowed to continue after the colonies declared independence from England nor did the president acknowledged the ongoing fight against racial injustice and police brutality which has prompted months of protests. This year trump has long fanned the nation's culture wars including defending the display of the confederate battle flag and monuments of civil war rebels from protest is seeking their removal. He speech on Thursday suggested his rhetoric could become even more nationalistic. In the final weeks before the election given that he's off to a second term relies largely on energizing culturally conservative white voters trump already cracked down on anti racism training sessions in federal agencies he said on Thursday, he will soon sign an order to establish a commission to promote patriotic education dubbed the seventeen seventy, six commission. The panel he said we'll be tossed with encouraging educators to teach students about the miracle of American history and plan for the Commemoration of the two hundred fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of independence. The move is a response to the New, York Times Sixteen nineteen projects, which highlights the long term consequences of slavery and the contributions of Black Americans Nicole? Hannah. Jones won a Pulitzer Prize for a piece in the magazine in response to trump's remarks Hannah Jones said the First Amendment to the constitution opposed government attempts to censor speech and guarantees free press the efforts by the president of the United States to use his palace to censor. Of American journalism by dictating what schools can and cannot teach what American children should and should not learn should be deeply alarming to all Americans who value free speech she said.
Trump not ready to OK TikTok deal, admits US won't get cut
"Basically, in August, the trump administration ordered via executive order whose legality remains highly questionable that the Chinese owner of Tiktok, a company called Bite Dance. Divest itself of Owning Tiktok within ninety days or face the prospect that tiktok would be shut down in the United States. I broke the deal I said you can't do business in the United States, which is at least potentially within the power of the US federal government based on national security concerns based on national security and the logistics are complicated that you probably could order apple and other people and servers that are hosting tiktok. that. They couldn't do it and it would defacto make it impossible for Tiktok to function. So that is what began a process where the owner of Tiktok, again, a Chinese company sought an alternative way to their cell, the US portion of Tiktok or what ended up happening major deals Rocking Wall Street this morning pushing futures higher. We find an American technology partner Oracle beat Microsoft and become the technology partner for TIC TACS US operations although will not. receive its coveted algorithm so that all took talks data would be kept in the United States on servers owned by an American company and not by Chinese company because the whole point of this was that all these people using Tiktok, these tens of millions, hundreds of millions that data was potentially vulnerable to being used and therefore misused by the Chinese government. How so So the fear was because technology companies in China by Chinese law are required if. By the Chinese government to turn over data relevant data that the Chinese government could tell the parent company of Tiktok, hand us all of your user data which user data of again tens of millions of Americans. and. Then China would have that data. So that was the concern right and and that's a legitimate fact the Chinese government could order that. The problem is, of course, one via our court system, an American court can order or prosecutor can subpoena data. From our companies. So it's not like what you and I do on Google or what we do on any technology provider is somehow. Unavailable. To government if government decides that it's in its interest to get it not to mention the the various many non-government actors, the vacuum, the stuff up and use it for their own purposes that is even more important I think probably more relevant to the China issue which is. Does it matter whether the data is in this case, potentially house by Oracle massive US hardware and software company versus being housed by servers in China. In terms of the ability of the Chinese government to obtain that data, it wanted to obtain it because not just third parties that hoover up data and use it in the whole buying selling and the data market, but just spying tools. Whether it's the NSA in the National Security Agency in the United States or various Israeli cybersecurity and or cyber spying companies or the Chinese government. Most of this data isn't that secure. Not. Like. Triple encrypted quantum encrypted defense department level communications. So likely true that if the Chinese government really wanted my teens Tiktok data, it doesn't really matter whether that data's House on servers in China owned by Chinese company or whether it was housed on American servers on buying American company. So I guess, then how do we get to this point? How did you know given what you just said why has this become such a big issue? How did it start? Yeah it's a good question I I'm not sure. There's a precise answer. It's part of a whole continuum of the trump administration in particular identifying China as a proximate threat to the United States and a whole series of ways competitively in terms of trade practices hence the hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese imported goods that have been subject to American tariffs. It's part of a multi year campaign against this massive Chinese telecom equipment company called Wa wa, which has been a leader in next generation five G. Telecom equipment in a way that again, some of the same concerns have existed which is. That the Chinese government would would use the production of that equipment as a way to spy on who met from purchase adequate. And Look a few years ago. There was a a forced sale of gay dating APP Grindr, which was also owned by a Chinese company, and so there was an earlier precedent of forcing a Chinese company to sell an American APP Social App. Because, of data concerns and finally, there's the fact that for years long predating the trump administration. China has not allowed American social media companies like facebook. To function in China. So there's the tit for tat. You know you don't let our social media functioning companies function there. Why should we let yours function here? There's Several year campaign against China which the trump administration's pursued but I think has a good deal of democratic support I. Mean if it's close to a bipartisan sentiment that China, China's a threat as anything we have right now. Why Tiktok? Suddenly became a thing I may partly have to do with the fact that it suddenly became a very big deal in the United States. I mean, this was not a company that had any footprint several years ago and suddenly as. The APP does your so it may have had to do with something that got really big and is very noticeable. Salsa not that economically important. So a lot of people would be royally pissed off Tiktok were banned. It's not like tiktok is. An integral component. To the US economy either during covid or without covid. So it's an easier target.

And it's fifty one percent owned by Chinese nationals. Now, a new tiktok global would mirror those ownership stakes. So bike dance selling anything more than about ten percent to Oracle would make the company majority US owned now is expected to by about twenty percent of this new company tiktok global. Now, the sale of an additional stake to Walmart would further increase US ownership over that fifty percent mark multiple sources telling me that tiktok global plans to file for an IPO on one of the US stock exchanges in about a year that would again further dilute Chinese ownership and sources. Tell me that Walmart would get a seat on the. Board the board would be subject to US government approvals. I'm told by a source close to the situation and the CEO and C. Suite would be American.

Of expertise helping companies bring innovative products to market. Rent plans agile design thinking. Lean methodologies to ignite entrepreneurial action within large organizations. Thanks so much for joining me today brand. Thanks for having me Diane Nice to be here. Well I am thrilled to have you here This is this is I'm really looking forward to this conversation. because. You've got this this split between like industrial thinking and entrepreneurial spirit and and I think especially in the Times that we're in right now it really matters and I'm wondering. If you would talk some about. Industrial minded thinking and how it actually affects business growth. That's the way I think about that. The industrial thinking is really the technology disruption that happened during. A The last century, the industrial age. was really about massive new technology that. To this day has is having a ripple effect. So that type of disruption happens in the core of. The economy so it's typically funded by government entities and the new technology disruption typically emerges out of large rnd centers of the biggest companies in the world as well as. Research Universities, and so we have this sort of this sexy idea about. Disruption and innovation happening with startups and it's quite possible that. Startups are the ones that take that new technology to the market and find the market fit. But the technology invention itself tends to happen in the very core of economy. That's where it starts thinking of the first computers were. The huge mainframes inside of the largest universities in the largest corporations. And that disruption Then starts rippling out to the economy, and so it starts with the buyers also just being large entities, other large universities and government and other big companies. But as that technology ripples through the economy you start getting. More invention on top of the core disruption and new products and services that are being offered and the ripple ends up out to the edge, and that's where we are today we're out at the very edge. Everybody's walking around with a computer in their pocket, and so most of the disruption that's happening in our economy happens out there on the edge, say Uber or AIRBNB or facebook even. It's the very end users whose lives are changed by the adoption of these products and services that was first enabled by that massive technology disruption but now disrupts on the edge. Now. The interesting thing is that it's not technology disruption out on the edge. So there's no technology invention or innovation really that happened at. Or AIRBNB or facebook. And yet the. Companies are often trying to emulate the innovation practices of that core technology disruption and instead of looking at ways of how do we actually do disruption? How do we do invention or innovation on the edge and the practices are different and so that's fundamentally. My my take on on why entrepreneurs and even large companies today that WanNa be quote unquote innovative they have to think of new practices in order to innovate out on the edge. Okay. So Talk to me about than the entrepreneurial spirit. Right to the entrepreneurial spirit is instead of thinking of invention, right? which was the technologist before the entrepreneur today needs to understand their customers deeply. And they can run experiments in order to validate or invalidate their assumptions and they use evidence in order to make decision making. And the reason is, is because the the consumer these days the customer has so much information on products and services in the words of companies right I mean. If a company does something wrong? It's all over social media. So the old branding went with that old school technology invention innovation and so. The entrepreneur's spirit. Is this what I call the threes empathy experiments in evidence. which allows those entrepreneurs out on the edge to understand their customers deeply and instead of worrying about say intellectual property, Ip portfolio or whatever. Their goal is to obtain customer insights and those customer insights which drive differentiation, and if you can capitalize on those insights, you're the one that's going to win in the marketplace.
How the North Bay Became 'Wine Country'
"To answer Michael's question about when wine country got start and how it became. So popular, we brought in reporter Christopher Beale Hey Christopher Hay alluvia. So let's start with when wine grapes were first planted in the North Bay. When was that all the way back in eighteen twenty three the Spanish created a mission in Sonoma's. It's the first place where grapes were intentionally planted in wine country but the wine made from these grapes was Sacramento Kinda like alcoholic. Grape juice used in church, not what we would recognize as wine, and then in eighteen thirty s some of the early European settlers in the NAPA sonoma valleys would have grown some basic wine grapes as well. Now, when does the wine country that we think of today start to take shape for the sake of the story let's start in eighteen forty California is ten years from entering the Union and this guy named Charles Krug arrives in San Francisco. Crew was a German after the revolutions of eighteen, forty eight in Europe the comes into San Francisco. It was the editor of a German language newspaper in San Francisco. That's Jim Lapsley he managed agricultural continuing education at UC Davis for more than thirty years with focus on wine-making. Now, after a few years in San Francisco Charles Krug gets married and ended up as a dowry getting quite a bit of land. This is the area just North of Santa Lena where the Charles Krug winery is located considered. It'd be the first commercial winery in Napa Valley. The wine country story is really one about marketing and innovation, and this Guy Charles crew gets credit for a lot of the early innovation and wine country including being the first to use a cider press, which is kind of like a slotted barrel to press wine grapes before that grapes were generally crushed by people's feet. When California entered the union, it was a place where we could grow grapes because the climate was quite similar to the southern Mediterranean. It was dry during the summer it had wet winters and differ grew very well here in California. For, is a species of grapevine. It's used to make wine after the early success of pioneers like Cruyff people began to plant grapes and produce more wind and the NAPA and sonoma valleys. But this was still considered low quality table wine and it continued to represent only a fraction of the US market mainly because it was still cheaper for east coast consumers to import wine. From Europe by boat, then from California by train. But that all changed in eighteen, seventy five, the US government stepped in and increase the tax on imported European wines to twenty cents a gallon which leveled the financial playing field for California's wine producers, and as a result, the wines dig it imported from Europe can be much more expensive wines and oak wine that was everyday drinking. That became the from California. Now. It wasn't a linear march from this moment today. The wind industry suffered a few major setbacks over the years but one way or another managed to survive them. Here's a few of the important ones I wine country was almost destroyed by bugs in the eighteen seventies. This is a microscopic bug that eats the roots of wine grapes. It's related to an eighth fit in it's called. PHILOXENIA. And when it arrived in wine country, it destroyed the vineyards to kill the vineyards and the only way could really come up with a solution was to plant on grafted vines the bottom, the rootstock would be a native variety and then on top graft with Vida's Benifica.
What Are The Costs Of Climate Change?
"The Gulf coast faces catastrophic flooding after yet another hurricane this when Sally London to shore. Early this morning meanwhile, record setting fires have been burning in the West for weeks. These climate fueled disasters are not only dangerous. They're costly billions of dollars have been lost so far. This year NPR's climate team has been looking into what that means for the economy and for families nate. Rot is an Oregon and Rebecca Hersher is just back from the Gulf Coast Natan Rebecca. Hello to both of you hither. And Becky, let's put this first question to you. We know that climate change makes a year like this one more likely to occur. That's because hotter temperatures helped drive bigger more damaging wildfires and hurricanes. But what do we know about the economic toll that takes? Well, you know unfortunately, this isn't the first year that the US has had this kind of back to back situation with fires and storms, and that's kind of thing as you said, global warming helps fuel and the federal government and actually tracks the status. So we have some idea of how expensive. These things are and the cost is just huge. So in the last five years, the US has experienced more than five hundred billion with a B., dollars in losses directly from climate fueled weather disasters, and that's not including twenty twenty s disasters that will likely be in the tens of billions five, hundred, billion dollars in the last five years enormous amount of money nate outside Eugene Oregon near one of the major fires burning give us some sense of what those fires mean for the local economy there. Well, they've just been devastating businesses here in Eugene. Up. and down the state that it had to close just because of the smoke and a lot of these businesses were already just hanging on by a thread because of the pandemic then you've got the direct damages from the fires lost homes timber buildings lost infrastructure I talked to a telecom worker the other day at the incident command post with a firearm near, and he had just gotten back from being in the burnt area His name is Rob Robertson and he described the scene where like a ghost forest he said they lost something. Like sixty miles worth at telephone poles, it had been built and he says each of those poll costs about ten thousand dollars we're looking at you know multimillions worth of infrastructure to replace I. Mean it's just there's so much infrastructure out there that that's been destroyed now, and that's just in one valley from one fire in a state that's got fires in. You know basically from north to south and Robinson was frustrated because he said, he felt like there were things that we could do right now decrease risked infrastructure, but we haven't because it costs money. On that point when it comes to wildfires, for example, what can be done to decrease their long-term costs. So it's going to take a big change in the status quo right now, we spend billions of dollars just about every year fighting fires, you know trying to put him out and fire colleges, land managers even firefighters will tell you that money would be way better spent on the front end. Here's Sara ultimate pope, a former smoke jumper who now runs a force collaborative in southern Oregon we do have a lot of work that we need to do on our forest to get them back to. A more healthy state where they're going to be resilient in the face of climate change and resilient to disturbance, and to do that, we're going to have to invest in them. So she says, we're going to need more prescribed fire thinning more management of these places, and that is going to cost a lot of money. You know billions of dollars. So that's wildfires. Then there's hurricanes and Rebecca as we mentioned, you just got back from the Gulf Hurricane Sally is dumping rain on the Gulf Coast and Hurricane Laura destroyed towns along the Louisiana Texas border. Late last month gives sense about the hurricane cost. Well. You know hurricanes are consistently the most expensive disasters that we see especially hurricanes that caused a lot of flooding like sally and that's really bad news because that's exactly the kind of storm that's more common as the earth gets hotter this year has been really bad. There have already been ten climate driven disasters that cost more than a billion dollars each that was as of July. One thing to remember is that where people live really matters you know the number of homes in flood prone areas, it's skyrocketed in las three decades. So the seam disaster today is going to cause more damage hurt more homes than if it had happened previously. So zoning laws building codes, they are really important and climbing experts say that there are economic benefits to be had if we build in more resilient ways. Rebecca innate. We've been talking about the overall economic costs of climate fueled disasters, but let's go to a more personal level. How does this affect families and what do we know about how surviving a fire or flood affects people financially Well. The effects are really dramatic for a lot of people especially poor people if you don't have savings to fall back on or gave can't afford adequate insurance, a disaster can totally derail a family's finances for decades people whose home is their only source of wealth. For example, they're more likely to end up renting even years later, bankruptcy is more likely there. are other costs to like for example, research suggests that young people who survive a hurricane, they're less likely to enter college. It takes longer to graduate if they do go and survivors also have long term mental and physical health problems often, and that can interfere with work that obviously hits income or create new costs of their own. These are extreme weather disasters. We've been focusing on, but what about the financial hit from less dramatic or less immediately noticeable climate impacts like the gradual rise of temperatures. So yeah, I mean rising temperatures and heat waves hurt agriculture health certainly electrical bills. You know you have warmer waters affecting fisheries and then there's just the down the road impacts ecological decline you know are in extinction crisis. Right. Now that climate change is only going to make worse and we depend on ecosystems for everything from clean water and air or two places to go where we can just escape from it all and I don't really know how you put a price tag on something like that. That's NPR's climate team nate rot and Rebecca. Hersher. Thank you both of you. So. Much. To be here.
The Cost of Student Debt
"Michael, thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me during a plague I appreciate it. We appreciate you and I gotta say it like when I saw the title of your book, I don't WanNa die poor. You know I thought to myself every point in my life I feel that. ADDS but but tell us why did you want to write this book right now? I didn't really put Tomlin per se but I think off the bed I'm really sick of away. College debt is talked about it's either like it's really really bad. People did like some ridiculous off their debt, which is really silly I, WanNa talk about debt in the way it's actually really impacting people black college graduates and Black College. Graduates of all five in general. Yeah. Getting into it like. Did your dream of going to college costs you can in numbers. And totals about like a little over six figures, the primary loan that paid for. Power for the most part sixty, thousand principle in about thirteen years i. Spend about ninety, five, thousand dollars on it already it's just the fact that for a lot of people don't have access to certain capital, we don't come from certain backgrounds. So they take advantage of us. I tried to put in the context of like I took the educational woman of a subprime mortgage loan. Conversation. Around student I think tend to focus typically on the number of how much how long? To pay back how much interest You accrued over time. But in the book you really get is like the emotional cost of procedure dreams or getting an education talk more about that part I wanted to talk about in terms of high really impacts every facet of life instead of just kind of even like how did it impact mostly in terms of your dating some cases? How does it magnified trauma that you kind of grew up with you know run into also recognized A question like there is an emotional way that we carry in addition to the physical dead. But I think if people really kind of you don't have to have student loan debt to lead into, you know where we are. Now all of us kind of see like people being screwed over even better not their fault or at least you should not solely be blaming yourself for a situation that you did in earnest with the best intentions. In this year is kind of a I think compounds a lot of a lot of people are feeling obviously with the pandemic. Of subsequent like economic. Fallout. Economic Stadi- things is affecting black people with substantial student debt. Whenever, there's a crisis in the country. We feel the worst of it we have more debt just by virtue of again started from behind and trying to crawl away open. You know black grabs was even if you didn't necessarily have a substantial amount of debt realities, your college degree doesn't allow the same ability to generate wealth away a wife high school graduates still. So it's just kind of highlighted. What was already there to that end statistic is like you know it takes the average person twenty years. To pay back their student debt while a lot of people are. Building their lives. Starting entry level work trying to start families are having to take care of parents and loved ones. It's a lot to all at once. Are there any policies or initiatives that you think our leaders our government could putting in place to make this easier on people live with Horn and Bernie in particular really brought debt cancellations like a national conversation. We all go to cancel all student that in this country. and Said Joe Biden Credit, you know was not my first second third fourth pig but auntie slapped down and we is what it is. It is what it is. But I do get. that. Piggybacking off of some Elizabeth Warren's influence that he does have initiative about some level of debt forgiveness. It's not high as Bernie with Liz but there's the caveat if you are a black college graduates specifically and you make under one hundred, twenty, five, thousand dollars I believe that is like total debt cancellation because I think that's really one important way to kind of help a lot of people who are going to default this you. And that's also gonNA stop them from being able to buy houses and rent apartment. So let's fix the problem by giving people a great
