You know, Lansing is not a massive, busy, bustling place necessarily in when you feel like you can maneuver around town really easily so when when security does get to this level, it's not feeling when you see The windows being boarded up. It's a little it throws you back a little bit. Did you have an opportunity to talk to police at all? Or any of the protesters? Well, what were they saying throughout the day? There were a number of different reasons that brought brought the public. Oh, but you're right. I should've mentioned that there were a number of stores even blocks away. Some of them boarded up the windows just in case on Saturday. But I talked to people that were there. They set out of curiosity that they wanted to see what happened. They thought, you know they thought that Recent events were historic, and they wanted to be witnesses to it.

It's It's almost a kind of a movement and their you know, that's an interesting group.

Anti government sort of an anarchist group. That's basically you know, looking for kind of a conflict of breakdown society, Some kind of, you know, some kind of a civil war that would that would basically tear down existing structures. And, um, you know when they read Ah manifesto talking about government overreach and that sort of concerns that were certainly there were pro Trump. People there There was, you know, some waving trump legs and that sort of thing. There was. There were entrepreneurs. There was a man there trying to sell Trump paraphernalia in anti Wittmer signs. He didn't seem to be doing a booming business because, you know, I mean, the state police estimated there were only maybe, like 20 protesters there talks. I think I think they're estimate was a little light. But it was not at the line. You know, there was Was definitely more media there than there were demonstrators and there were far more police than there were, um, you know, reporters and demonstrators combined. Yeah. And you want to give you want to make sure people have the ability and the right to exercise free speech at the same time after seeing what happened at the Capitol, you understand why there was an abundance of caution and hopefully things will stay peaceful between now and Wednesday, and they're after, but definitely interesting time to be up there..

It seems like It's probably about six or seven bombshells against President Trump ago. They said. Or this guy that writes for the Atlantic Monthly, which which is one of these magazines like Playboy or Esquire or Newsweek. They don't really exist anymore, except online any any. And he wrote this story with no no confirmed sources. Nobody on the record, saying the president Trump called that the dead soldiers that were buried from World War one in France as Stupid and losers. Very soccer's. And of course, it wasn't true and everybody, including people at all, like Trump, like John Bolton, John Kelly, the former chief of staff from right, they all said. That's It's nonsense. He didn't say it. But the story was out everywhere. Wasn't true. So Today. Some new audio has emerged of Joe Biden. It's video, actually Taylor. What is this? That you were about to play here?

"The Atlantic Monthly magazine that a report it said it had four sources who had said that the president on the trip to Europe to honor the war dead World War. Made disparaging remarks about going to a cemetery where Marines from that war were buried. It said. Why would I want to go? Ah Ah, see guys who adjust suckers and I forget what else was attributed to what he said. And then, in fact, he chose not to go to the cemetery not because the weather was in climate and didn't permit the helicopter to fly there. But because he just decided he didn't want to go because his hair would get wet. Well, so he when this story came out, I mean, there's so many parts of this story that are just sort of job dropping, but number one, he attacked Jennifer Griffin from Fox News. Jennifer Griffin was hired at Fox News. A long, long time ago, when it first was, you know, sort of the fair and balanced. It hadn't gone so completely all the way to the right it had. It was not a It wasn't a publicity or propaganda machine. The way I think it is now. But this woman is considered one of the best journalists out there and I've known her for many, many years. She is as straight laced as they come. She would never, ever ever say that there was an anonymous source. Ah, without having that actual source confirmed, and Fox News would not have let her run with it. If they didn't absolutely trust that she had confirmed with multiple sources. She's been around for a long time. She's been down in D. C for a long time she's called so many sources. And the fact is anybody that says, Will you come just because you have an anonymous source? Obviously, that shows it's fake news bull That is not true. And you guys know it. The right uses it. The left uses that Trump himself was an anonymous source for years and years and years, so enough with this anonymous source nonsense. This is a tactic. It's a tool used by journalists, and it is a very effective tool, and we wouldn't have had a lot of the major stories and a lot of major scandals broken if we had not used anonymous sources. Well, the problem here, though, is it Had a nemesis of Donald Trump has emerged. John Bolton, who was his national security advisor, who made the trip with him to Europe, and he's saying that in all the time that he spent with the president Which was not all the time but a lot of the time. Ah, he didn't hear that attributed to the president. He didn't hear others talking about it at president had said that And that in fact, he verified why the one visit to the cemetery to visit the Marines was cancelled because of the weather. On. This is not a guy who is a friend of Donald Trump. Ted, you know, I mean, but here's the thing so I would just like to hear from Trump supporters who blasted him for all of the things that, he said in his book. Are you going to blast him for saying this or you're going to continue to call him a liar? Because you can't have it both ways. I mean, if you're if he's saying something that now appeases you, and then you're saying Well, Okay, well, then he's obviously he's telling the truth. I mean, it's just the hypocrisy is just astounding on both sides of the aisle. But this look, the fact is, I don't know what what His motivation is. He's one guy. But there were step for several sources and the sources that Jennifer Griffin has our high place sources. And there are too many people agreeing with this. Plus, we've heard him say. We heard him, say, Loser Loser loser about some of the most heroic people on this planet, including John McCain. It's usually when he uses the term loser. It's somebody who's attacked him or criticize him so Hey, calls people human scum. He just called again today. The media human scum. I mean, it's just this is a guy who uses these words. He throws them out like candy at a parade, right? But with 55 days left now to the actual cashing of the vote, although we don't necessarily think it will be resolved by the night of November, 3rd. You would think now they're Bolton has come up No friend of Trump and said that didn't happen. According to my recollection. I wasn't with him every minute of the trip, but it didn't happen. Almost like you've got to come up with someone to counter act it Well, you might end up saying ah, a lot of people obviously who had beef with the president of the United States. How do we know they didn't just concoct? All I want is one of his major critics, John Bolton and saying I want to hear didn't happen why they believe John Bolton now, but they don't believe him. When he's talking about all these other things. I'm really curious to hear that, because to me, that's very hypocritical and it's It's what we do. We don't call our own our own sides. We just always have to believe we put our blind loyalty. I That's not write. The other thing is the president, um, basically went out and attacked the Pentagon leaders. I mean, this is like Classic Divide and conquer. It's It's Politics Strategy, 101. He's pitting the rank and file now against military brass. This is the commander in chief. And he thinks that this is acceptable. Why are we not hearing from me is there's a reason he's accusing the Pentagon leaders have fighting wars to boost defense contractors profits? We haven't been pulling out of any wars. This is exactly what this is what exactly? Eisenhower said upon his departure. There were very few generals of his prominence when he left the presidency, he said, Beware. Of the military industrial complex, which I agree you have generals who leave the military. Then they are employed its lobbyists or they get big, fat jobs with defense contractors. I just find it interesting, incredible amounts of money. Now he's he's He's launching this attack. What he's trying to Dio in. My opinion is he's trying Teo make us make his supporters questions the credibility now of the military brass because he is concerned that there going Tio, they're going to call him out. As well. They should. All right, let's go to Adam was calling all the way from Atlanta. Welcome to W. A. B. C and the reuniting get, said Juliet and yours truly courteously, Adam Hey, courtesy, Julia.

Right. We're doing good. People could eat inside restaurants or outside of depending their choice, But things were almost back to normal. So that's a good thing and I just wanted to say that, for example, with this newest trump controversy, there are four people who said that he said it but I, As of latest. I think there's about 15 to 20 people saying that he didn't say it are. Who are these people? They're all members of his administration..
Will Early Retirements Crash the Economy?
"I recently saw a poll that was sponsored by T. Rowe price it showed forty three percent of millennial workers expect to retire before the age of sixty five that compares to thirty five percent of those from generation. X. which is ages forty fifty five. This survey was referenced in an article by Gina Smith Alec of The New York Times. The article was titled. How millennials could make the FEDS job harder. The subtitle they love the idea of retiring early that could diminish the Federal Reserve's firepower the article reference. How millennials in order to leave the workforce early with need to build up massive retirement funds and buy less things and that lack of demand could hit consumption which would slow economic growth leading to ever lower interest rates. The author mentioned the paradox of Thrift. Which is if everyone tries to save in mass that could lead to lower economic growth lower inflation and trip up the economy. She writes when consumers save a big portion of their income. They are not spending as much on dinners out. Movie Nights and cars businesses respond by investing less than equipment and technology and productivity stalls. Bosses are unwilling to pay their workers more for the same output and week pay gains further restrain spending. Would a wave of early retirements cause such economic turmoil? That's what we're going to explore in this episode. The fear that early retirements would cause economic. Turmoil is not new. It was prevalent in the nineteen twenties. Which are sometimes called the roaring twenties because it was a period where economic growth was very very strong in the US was following World War. One Manufacturers really hit their stride. They were able to produce goods that were affordable to the masses the economy the measure of output gross domestic product grew by about forty two percent during the nineteen twenties that compares to about twenty five percent economic growth during the most recent decade real per capita GDP. The amount of output produced per person grew from sixty five hundred dollars. This is on a real basis so negative inflation to nine thousand seven dollars about a forty percent increase between twenty ten and twenty nineteen real per capita GDP in the US grew from just under fifty thousand to just over fifty eight thousand about a seventeen percent increase now is from a smaller base in the nineteen twenties but it was a period expansion even greater than the expansion of the most recent decade where we didn't have any economic recessions in the US in the nineteen twenties. There were several brief periods of economic contraction. But generally speaking the economy was doing very very well Lincoln steffens. He's an investigative journalist was known for his investigations on corruption. Business in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight he wrote big business in America is producing what the socialist held up as their goal food shelter and clothing for all president. Calvin coolidge said. This is essentially a business country. Journalist Samuel Strauss in the Atlantic monthly in one thousand nine hundred eighty four wrote. This is our proudest boast. The American citizen has more comforts and conveniences than kings had two hundred years ago. He pointed out the signs of that prosperity. Automobiles radios buildings bathrooms furs furniture. Ocean LINERS HOTELS BRIDGES VACUUM CLEANERS. Cameras Bus Lines Electric Toasters moving pictures. Railway cars packaged foods telephones. Pianos novels comics. These things were made available. Because of mass production efficiencies in the manufacturing process they were also accessible to the public not only because the prices were affordable but credit was available installment purchases
[Part 1] On Great Teachers and the Remarkable Life: A Deliberate Practice Case Study by Cal Newport
"Predicting greatness. The impact of teachers is profound if you rank the world's countries by their students academic performance the US this is somewhere in the middle in two thousand Nine Yorker Article Malcolm guy well knows stat. Replacing the bottom six percent ten percent of public school teachers with teachers of average quality polity could be enough to close the gap between our current position and the top ranked countries quote. Your child is actually better off in a bad school with an excellent teacher then in an excellent school with a bad teacher Gladwin concludes. But there's a problem quote. No one knows what a person with the potential to be. A great teacher. Looks like Mike and quote or at least. According to Glad Well Teaching for America nonprofit recruits outstanding college graduates to teach in low income. School districts disagrees. His organization is fanatical about data for the past twenty years. They've gathered massive amounts of statistics on their teachers in an attempt to figure out why some succeed in the classroom in some fail Ale then work backwards from these results to identify what traits best predict a potential recruits success as a man Ripley reports in a comprehensive look inside the teach for America process published in the Atlantic monthly the results of this outcome based approach to hiring our humbly. I came into this with a bunch of theories to former head of admissions at teach. Teach for America told Ripley quote proven wrong at least as many times as I was validated and quote when each for America I started twenty years ago applicants were subjectively subjectively scored by interviewers on twelve general traits like communication ability sample interview question. What is wind by contrast? If you're one of the thirty five five thousand students who applied in two thousand nine a pool that included eleven percent of Ivy League seniors. Thirty data points gathered from a combination of questionnaires demonstrations in interviews us were fed into a detailed quantitative model that returned a hiring recommendation. This data driven approach seems to work as readily reports in two thousand seven twenty ninety four percent of teach for America. Teachers advance their students at least one and a half grade levels or more two years later as the organization's models continue to evolve this number has almost doubled to forty four percent. I'm fascinated by teach for America for a simple reason the trace.

"Based on the true story. I believe it's of the same title as I think it was an Atlantic monthly article that became also the, the basis for maybe that maybe the Dustin Hoffman often movie outbreak two, but it was it was based on that notion of the escaped Ebola virus and what happens if it suddenly gets into the mainstream of society, and there, again, just to say it because you brought it up earlier, and I wanted to mention it, there's Julianne Margulis as you said, in the NBA narratives, it's the women dot the renegade. Women doctors. And the detective stories it's the hard boiled. You know, stand against the power structure, shaking, his fist to the world, male detective stories, but a lot of ways they sort of parallel each other, and that's interesting. I didn't really make that connection until I heard a couple of breaks ago and the clarify the article by Richard and came out in the New Yorker in New Yorker. Okay. I was thinking about a real life people outbreak in reston Virginia. Right. And that the crust of it was that it was a strain of a bowl of it was heiress allies, which meant that it could spread in the air, which is not how he Bola normally transmit so made it highly highly dangerous. Luckily, the strain, they had rest in only affected the monkey. And so it was able to be contained but that was sort of the first and only able outbreak on American soil. And so when the article was published. It got a lot of attention. And then he got a Richard Preston. Got a book deal and the book version came out in nineteen ninety four. And he also got a movie deal. And what's interesting is that it has taken until now for that, that become something that they were trying to make it into a movie. And they knew that they had to compete with outbreaks and outbreak went into production. I like they, they were like racing outbreak went into production before the script was even finish and because outbreak got into production. I basically pulled the plug on the crisis in the hot zone movie, and then Linda, oaths and really thought had been trying to make it as like, you know, a mini theory limited edition..

"Com. An office look into it on Jack. Then the born very tired English teacher school principal and I've been interested in dinosaur for some time. And then I saw this article in the Atlantic monthly about that lady who talk about all those volcanoes blowing up in India. And then so I kind of well what's going on here? So then I thought that's something for science weekly. And so it's it's this lady professor Keller at Princeton University. She has an alternative theory, and she thinks that a series of volcanic eruptions in India is actually responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs. Not this massive asteroid and hating in Mexican area. Right, right. Presumably the asteroid. Oy, also hitch. But anyway, it's something I thought, hey, this is this is the topic of times meekly can explore neatly in a way that I very much appreciate. They separate of science weekly is for you, Jack. I'm Greg Jackson. My name is Paul upchurch, professor of Palo Bilgee, the department of sciences university curriculum than I sat down with pool to discuss the conventional theory the impact hypothesis. Okay. So the audio of the impact this is the just over sixty six million years ago. The earth was hit by at least one very large asteroid probably asteroid raw than a comment, but it could be a comment if it was an asteroid probably something like ten comatose in diameter. And it seems that it hits the earth in the region of the chick syllable crater, and that's on the Yucatan peninsula, which is essentially Mexico, and the idea of this hypothesis is the this would be the mechanism for causing a massive extinction. Where the earth probably lost somewhere between about fifty and seventy five percent of species. Potentially very very rapidly. Or what I like to call other people have called this the afternoon scenario where everything is is going along fine. Everybody's very happy. And then suddenly bang mass. Devastation has been pummeled by asteroids throughout its history. And they've not caused Matic's sink Sion's as far as what was it about this one that made it different? So in the case of the chicks impact, this was half, online and half in shallow ocean, potentially. This could you know, throw a lot of material into the atmosphere essentially block out sunlight four period of maybe weeks or maybe months, but but enough to cause a very sudden relatively sharp decrease in in global temperatures. And if we fast forward sixty six million years to today, I wonder what was the first piece of evidence that made us think a ha- it does appear to be this massive asteroid that came and impacted with the earth. Well, I remember this because I was a child at the time and back in. In nineteen eighty a couple of American scientists Louis Alvarez who I believe is a physicist Walter Alvarez, his son who's a Joe just were interested in looking at how much of a particular very heavy. Metal could rhythm was raining down on us from space on a regular basis because if you could measure the rate, which radium filthiest down onto the earth is accumulated in rocks. You'd have one way of sort of measuring the age of rocks. But then they found something rather unusual. There's a clay layer what the call the boundary clay at the very end of the tastes periods. So exactly when the mass extinction seems to happen in that clay layer. There was what the new radium spike or radium anomaly, so it's far more originally you'd expect just from so background levels of rainy after space. So they ask the question work. This rhythm have come from and one possibility is from a great pulse involved captivity because as radium in the deep earth that can be brought to the surface. Through Volk Newsham, but another possibility would be through some kind of a massive asteroid impact. And shortly after that people were looking for some kind of remnants of the crater and they found one hundred eighty two two hundred climate of wide ring shaped structure in the chick slip region, which turns out to be the remnant of a very large maitre impact. And it's exactly the right age potentially to coincide with the extinction..

Charles duhig Charles is a repeat guests. Love Charles always makes me think and he gives us tremendous freedom to act and think differently with this excerpt as we talk about ignoring conventional wisdom listening to Charles duty. I wanna talk about this. Other term creative desperation. What does that mean to you? There's this really interesting science behind who gets to be creative. Right because we tend to think of creativity as something that you're born with or you have some temperament for right there are creative artists in this world. And they're soak short creative. It what we found is that science tells us that's exactly raw anyone can be creative. Anyone can be incredibly innovative. It's about learning. These kind of mental habits these tricks that allow you to tap into your creativity. And the first one is you mentioned is created ration- one of the things that we know is that many people tend to become much more, creative not necessarily when they're feeling calm, and relaxed. But rather when they're feeling like they're back is against the wall. The deadline is coming up. Sometimes in fact, a number of studies have shown that when we're angry, we tend to become more creative. We tend to see more solutions. And I think what it comes from is that often times when we're facing a deadline when we're feeling upset will were feeling kind of all riled up. We feel this need to ignore convention rent. We ourselves permission to take risks because we don't have any other options because either PO or or the deadlines coming up, we gotta do something. And it's when we give ourselves permission to take risks to ignore convention to kind of do the crazy thing. That's when often times we have our most, creative ideas. Interesting. Okay. So the anger angle, that's interesting. We're not telling you leaders to go get angry, then walk into a brainstorming meeting. But I'm taking notes is a motion overriding the brain at that point. It would anger what we know about anger. Anger is really interesting actually writing an article right now about anger for the Atlantic monthly, and what we know about it is that when you are angry, we tend to think of anger as a antisocial behavior, that's negative. But. What we what anger is that? It's actually pro social anger makes us feel energize. It makes us optimistic about the future. It prompts us to take matters into our own hands, and to take more risks as I mentioned, but also to be able to say, look, there's an obstacle. They're gonna go overcome it because I'm just so pissed that it's my way one of the things that we know about anger, in fact, is that if you look at brain scans of people who are angry the closest corollary to that is people who are happy. Now, it's not necessarily the anger is a good thing. It's exactly right business leaders shouldn't go out there and his benefit timing angry for no other reason than we want to save their hearts and their marriage is right. What we can learn something from this, which is the more. You put yourself in a position where you feel like you're in control, the more aware, you give yourself permission to ignore convention to say, look, this is how it's been done a thousand times. But you know, what I'm just gonna try to different weight. Even if it feels risky if you'll scary if it feels kinda mad. Then oftentimes that's where something successful comfortable. Okay. That I wrote down folks permission to ignore convention jaws. That's worth the entire conversation. I'm telling you that's used because now we've got to go from so anger. Does that for us? I tell you what else does that for us is fear that fight or flight down. You know, you think about creativity is when your life is on the line..

"Let's they miss an important texts during the night. But now they're skins will be buzzing all night long. So so much for repair to sleep. The point is when technologies developed the stuff they overly high the positive advantage. They don't look at the negative side effects, the unanticipated unacknowledged side effects because they only look at the positive, and they overly hype that well, I think we need a new agency equivalent to FDA Federal Drug Administration to overlook effects of technology and in order to be in order to run as a company one must develop a crisis plan. I mean, for example, there there is no reason why. Prior to Facebook's launch the people who launched it where we're will develop the Dulce that the equivalent symbol teams appearance. Kids psychologists, and I bet you they will come up with the strong possibility of its being used as a platform for cyber bullying, not to say all the other things that it's been used as a platform for tissue formation fake news meddling in our election. The point is that. Technology which is made our lives incomparably better. We live longer healthier. It's not one of the greatest threats facing humankind.

Directly in our brains can make his quote, more improved human beings. God help us if we don't know all the effects that has your you're interfering to put it mildly in a very complex human being human organism. And the question becomes you?

We tend to see more solutions, and I think what it comes from is that oftentimes when we're facing a deadline, when we're feeling upset will were feeling kind of all riled up. We feel this need to ignore convention right. We give ourselves permission to take risks because we don't have any other options because we're either owed or or the deadlines coming up. We gotta do something and it's when we give ourselves permission to take risks to ignore convention to kind of. Do the crazy thing. That's when often times we have our most creative ideas. Interesting. Okay. So the anger angle. That's interesting. We're not telling you leaders to go get angry and then walk into a brainstorming meeting, but I'm taking notes is emotion overriding the brain at that point with anger, what we know about anger. Anger is really interesting. I'm actually writing an article right now about anger for the Atlantic monthly. And what we know about it is that when you are angry, we tend to think of anger as a antisocial behavior. Negative. But what we would anger is that it's actually pro social anger makes us feel energize. It makes us optimistic about the future. It prompts us to take matters into our own hands and to take more risks as I mentioned. But also to be able to say, look, there's an obstacle, they're gonna go overcome it because I'm just so pissed that it's my way. One of the things that we know about anger in fact is that if you look at brain scans of people who are angry, the closest corollary to that is people who are happy now. It's not necessarily the anger is a good thing. It's exactly right business leaders shouldn't go out there and has been timing angry for no other reason than we want to save their hearts and their marriages, right? We can learn something from this, which is the more you put yourself in a position where you feel like you're.
