"Filed the tide of Don shot. Tech news. It is brought to you by nerds in a flash. Google, Facebook, Twitter and Amazon have become monopolies with too much power. That is the opinion of former Democratic congresswoman Tulsi Gabbert. She was on Fox news just a minute ago talking about these tech giants that must be split up, she says. She calls the reference to destroy social media at parlor as a prime example of their danger. Well, first of all, let's just be clear from the outset as we're seeing now. Once again how dangerous these big tech monopolies are and how imperative it is that we break them up that we actually bring about solutions to break up the power that they have. Mass. I think the important thing is that we do this through legislative changes and reforms. Not through throwing Molotov cocktails and and having rights. And this is where exactly all of us come into play that we is voters. We need to make sure that we're choosing leaders who are motivated by serving the American people upholding our constitutional freedoms and upholding our democracy more than being motivated by selfish interests. And how do I please My big tech monopoly donors. And this is where, um, you know, I think that there's a lot of hopelessness right now and wondering how do we do this? There you go. That's Tulsi Gabbert on fox Jump in here at 512836059. You know, we talked a lot. Of course about Are these companies too big and we thought we talk about it like, you know, kind of a hypothetical, uh, assed far as the damage said they could do. And now it's just very real. It's like Wow, This is more than just, you know, kind of Ah, scary theory. We're seeing it happened and it's kind of a terrifying scenario where this could go from here. So exactly right. This this can never ever happen again and this is going to backfire. This is going to backfire, which part which part? Which part of all of this because you know, there's which part of what of this big tech thing. There's a couple of things at play here one. First of all, it's not a violation of your free speech. I understand that feels that way. And I'm right there with you. It feels that way. I got you cos he's a private companies that have the right to do business with the people they want to do business with that is, I'm going to remain consistent on that. But the way that they colluded at the very same time that is illegal that that is a monopoly and scared. There is antitrust issues there. That is something that is a much bigger issue that we should all be concerned. I mean, it is. It is really an example of a big monster eating, eating, Ah little animal and ah, smaller animal and just just chewing them up and spit them out. And so this this is a big needs to be a big wake up call a big lesson. A big red flag, And I don't think big tech gives a rip about it, though. I think they're ready to take whatever lawsuit comes their way because they can afford it. I think it's a thing. It's gonna backfire in many ways. What what That will be. I'm not sure. But but stock prices for Twitter and others plummeted yesterday. There you go. There you go out of fear that a lot of people maybe, you know, leaving these platforms. I don't I don't think they care. I don't think they care. I think they're okay with it. Well, I think they're so big. They don't care when you when you're when you're that far above everything else it ZZ not to care. Should they be broken up? I mean, we were talking about breaking a big check for years. This is this is a big red flag is this big warning sign the straw that broke the camel's by and broken up. If if if If this continues, Yeah, absolutely Listen. Just as the spring semester was starting the Austin Independent School District officials notified some teachers that they would be able to get the vaccine for covert 19. Dr. Anthony Maze, the AI SD chief of scholarship leadership, says our team, including our superintendent, Usman Adam, it's that teachers need to have this opportunity now, May says he was happy with the ascension seat and would be able to get these the district's most vulnerable teachers vaccinated. Yes. D identified 472 employees, including teachers who were eligible and offer them the opportunity to receive the vaccine, eh? I guess d teacher Annie Annie drag who she was able to get the vaccine, she says. She's very excited. Drag who suffers from multiple medical conditions and was recently denied medical accommodations. But she received a call last week from the district, saying she's eligible for the shot right now. She goes on to say, Tell Kay ex again that she she said that I have been identified as a high risk person. And I could get this vaccine. Ai Yes, he does not know how many teachers overall have received a vaccine, though. Now the district says vaccinations are medical records and the A. I s D does not keep medical records on their employees. You know, we got this vaccine is we know very, very quickly as far as the development of this and now distribution it. It's a record and it's it's extraordinary. Uh, I'm I think the voters out least my voters out as far as how this is being distributed how well it's going. Maybe our expectations were too high. But but But I have to say that that I the one aspect of this is far as getting out to the public. It seems to be very uneven, you know, and and some people are getting it before other people. It seems a bit uneven that the priorities here I guess What I don't like about the way it's happening so far is the fact that I have no idea. I have no feel it all for win. I We'll be able to get it. It is for us when it will fall onto me. Who? You know, I'm healthy on below below $65. The city has has as a formula in place one day and to a we could go on and on where you to determine where you fit in that category just up. But the thing is, nobody really knows what when their particular category is gonna gonna land it is happened. Jump in here at 51283605 90 Todd and done when I first pulled up in front of House. I thought while that is a beautiful clay tile roof, and then I found out it was actually a metal roof, and I was amazed and impressed. Hi. Good morning. It's Mark Caesar.

I'm happy to report. We are now where we are now. We do not need the waits for a pilot testing that the commissioner was talking about in the governor, but we put it in place, and now we're on the front of the line for this rapid testing that is available. I'm just curious. Does that get more kids back? Does that make this at ease teachers concerns about being in the classroom.

That's just a few minutes ago in that hearing, I have no doubt that that you know, no matter where she stands, I have a feeling this woman is going to try to be is objective as you can possibly be. That's her job. Yeah, that is her job. She's got no no track record of any confusion on this any recklessness or anything and any But again. It's just the desperation. They're going to go ahead and make up their minds. Here's how she's going to go every single time. Listen, there's a ridiculous Do you think parents should have more choice when it comes to schools? Oh, absolutely. Yeah. Absolutely. Parents shouldn't be able to choose where their kids go. Right? Of course, the money should follow the kid. Of course, right? Yes, well, a charter schools will be in the cross hairs of the Austin Independent School District next year. The Intergovernmental Relations Director and the butts She says the city will try to convince lawmakers in January to limit the growth of charter schools within district boundaries. Charters get a little over $1000 more per student than school district's do And so there's a big fiscal impact to the state. When that student goes to a charter school, the SD will also push for charters to be required to accept students with disciplinary problems. Since 2008 the TA says charter enrollment has grown. More than 800%. Parents want a choice that they do, and they I guess, t seize those kids is dollars. Dolla dolla bills y'all, especially right now it really means a lot to him there really watching those dollars because we have potential layoffs because of the potential a lack of funding because, you know, don't have butts in seats right now. Not a dollar dollar bills. Y'all are charter schools better. Do they get better results? Well, you know, kids score better. They better well rounded. I mean, it sounds like parents like charter schools. The idea the concept, you would think they would be better. You get a better one more one on one. You get Probably a higher caliber of of teacher mean. They became charter schools because the couldn't get it right, right. Right, so that in theory they should be. I don't know that simply because it says charter school that guarantees is going to be a better experience. I mean, just the fact that the numbers are up 800% charter enrollment coming in coming inside with the parents like it, and I have a feeling we're probably going to see homeschooling. Those numbers are probably going through the roof as we speak. I'm sure that a lot of parents air They realized that this is something that can handle Maybe something that they found fulfilling while the kids have it out, And maybe we're gonna have some that they're going to stick with. That dog is in Northwest Austin this morning, Doug, what's on your mind? Honey, I I have heard and I I don't remember where But in a couple of reports that part of the funding for profit is going to come from federal matching funds. Yes, if that's the case. Given what's going on with Corona virus and all of the other government spending that we've had. We've spent trillions of dollars this year that we don't have already. We're not likely to get those matching funds. How Muchmore the taxpayer is going to be on the hook. Yeah, that's a great question Funding. That's a That's another reason dollars Don't show up because they're not. They're not know you're absolutely right. They even if they haven't even begun the process of seeking those federal dollars and that is not a guarantee. What is a guarantee is that capital match from the city of Boston. Come back to you occasionally asking for billions of additional dollars. Todd and Don show Let me ask you has your yard looking right now. Maybe it needs a little bit of a shot in the arm..

Assistant platform, for instance, could use insights from successful third party voice ABS to boost its own product, whether by competitive acquisitions or, you know, feature integration. Also, a dominant companies can currently issue a take it or leave it demands to third parties on the platform like Requiring access to third party products, technical details and proprietary data. That's unfair, also will hear some of the proposed solutions restricting unfair competition between dominant platforms and third parties could actually help prohibit self preference ING and grant some power to smaller firms. And there's really a lot of concern about the data collection and where it saved a worried stored on these platforms and how you know, maybe some nefarious characters within some of these companies could Use that to their advantage. Here's the bottom line. Both parties generally agree that these tech giants pose a threat to competition. Republicans released an alternative recommendations for the fix. Any of the changes are on the table would be, you know, in theory helped facilitated greater greater tech innovation and competition. That's what they really want to do is they don't want to stifle the competition. No and the creativity if you're a third party trying to get into the game. These. These big boys have a lot of power over you. Obviously we can't have a situation where competition is virtually impossible. The exact on economy cannot flourish that way. Ah, and as faras, the the long lasting effects and the results of that a lot of it. We can't even foresee right now, and we've got to think a lot of that is going to be bad. Got that story on my LinkedIn page at Todd Jeffries So this morning are the debate council that's organizing the presidential and vice presidential debates. They issued a report. It's saying that the next presidential debates would be virtual. And then we hear from the president earlier this morning after that, a few minutes after that, say, No, I'm not doing that Germans not going to do that. Trump basically says no, not going to do that. I heard that the commission a little while ago changed the debate style. And and that's not acceptable does well, you say you're not gonna participate. You know, I'm not gonna waste my time on a virtual debate. There you go. That's the president on the fox Business Channel thing, but a disaster Now. Also in the news, the governor's ready to open up bars 50% capacity. These bar owners, man, they've been hit hard. Some of them may never come back. So some of the ones that shut down may never come back. Beginning Monday. 50% capacity is the number and, well local health authority Marquess got here's what he says. Those ready to hit the high sea not that's the wrong one. Hang on a second, There's the doctor. Risk of transmission is going to increase so there would have to be substantial changes, too. The way of our functions, then work to make it safe. I think we could figure it out. We really don't need your help could be that they discussed kind of additional kinds of rules. You know, Bar can operate, but maybe we do things to encourage outside activity. Maybe big bars were treated differently than the neighborhood bar that has 10 people. And we'd probably know in 3 to 4 weeks if we've seen a spike rights. I mean, if things turn bad, we could we could pull back sure were good. But I want to hear from listeners. I do I want to hear from listeners. Will you be ready to go back to bar? Are you going to go back? This is great news for our local musicians. Yes, bartenders, musicians, all of the vendors that provide booze and you know, cops and dishes and silverware and stuff like that. This is the ripple effect is is is great. It's not just people drink and beer. Assed part of this economy. It's very important to the maraschino, cheery, absolute industry here in Austin. Is that stuff? That's formaldehyde, isn't it? I think it is. I think it is no seriously. I think there's some kind of preservative. That's the look that I wouldn't doubt it. Just what it looks like to me. But But I do want to hear from Lister's 51283605. 90, are you Are You ready to go back to the bar? Will you go back to me? And if not, I don't know why. Why won't you go back? It's a great question. I've already been in bars. I have to I was in one last night. Absolutely. Hey, the Austin Independent School District Superintendent, Dr Stephanie yells All day says after three days of in person classes, things are going according to plan so far. She says. I think it's encouraging. Successful. The new superintendent knows each day will bring some new challenges We want to read to be reflective and make adjustments as necessary is what she tells Caixa again. Now, one of our biggest concerns of students attending parties and possibly, you know, then bringing that that virus to the campus, she says. I will continue to put out recommendations to both staff and students as I get to visit. What surrounding superintendents Doctor S. Scott? You know about once a week I was all he said. He Hey, certainly mentions tow us about parties that are going on and possibly bringing attention to that. She doesn't want kids to get together outside of school at all. It's not coming, You know from the classroom. It's coming from outside the classroom into the building. She said. That's exactly right. Yeah, it does appear that the kids are not getting sick from sitting at their desks and well with work. Well, we don't know that for sure. It's easy to say that, but but they're wass. You know, the entire stony point high school football team that's you know, coming down with this virus. So they got it somewhere. Maybe they will get together in the locker room and a classroom. I'm not sure where they got it. But now one of the questions the superintendent has that that we may we may add to some of our athletes and extracurricular activities. And maybe the question is, if you have not participated in the outside parties, air gatherings The question they're going to throw to the kids. Have you been? Did you go to a party this weekend? That you kids get together? You go parking somewhere, right? What did you do this weekend? You like anybody? 7 41 here in K. LBJ, Thailand don show. Jeffries.

Yeah, Okay, Okay. Makes so much sense, doesn't it? Because I am mix all kinds of sense. Yeah. Okay. Now that's happening. Yeah, that's happening. And you need just okay? Because you said this this morning in our Facebook live and I was like, What are you even talking? Yes. So my daughter's a swimmer. And she is going to be in fifth grade, and I got so frustrating so right now, so as of Monday because of Governor Holcomb they have to. We have to. If I want to go in to practice with her, she's practicing like what? Four or five days a week now. And if I want to go in with her, I have to wear a mask into the pool that she has to wear a mask. Into the pool. Stop right there. She has important she wears. Okay, so she wears a swimsuit. Just a have a swimsuit on to go into the pool area. It's actually the wines and no into the pool area. She has to wear a mask. All the swimmers have to wear masks now into the pool area, so she but she can't She can't go into like the restroom or that she can't change in there. She has to go in with her swimsuit on because a lot of times you know, girls and boys, they'd go into the They could come in without their swimsuits on and go change in the locker rooms. You can't do that right now. They have to come in fully in their swimsuits. OK, go in with mass on they have to go into the pool area. They have to stay six feet apart with their mass on and then right before they jump into the pool. They have to take their masks off, literally at the side of the about to dive in gas, and that's when they're allowed. That's when they're allowed to take their mask off. They jump into the pool Do there. Where does the mask go against you? And I guess they leave it on the side of the pool. I don't know, because I can't go in because I refuse to go in with her because I have to wear a mask at all times. And it's like 1000 degrees in that pool. I can't do it. I just can't It's so hot, right? So they're they're obviously going to be set aside in a place that they will get wet. Uh, yes. Oh, that's unavoidable. Yeah, orjust exactly. So they're so they're like next to the pool or whatever, so they they go and they do their swimming. You know, she'll swim for an hour and 1/2 or whatever, Get out. Put the mask back on this wet. That's I guess if she's to be wed, it'll get wet and then gets out of the pool and then comes out and they can't get changed in the locker room. Obviously, they have to come out wet. And then I pick her up, and then you know what's in a wetsuit and I drive her home. This is how this works now when they start having swim meets because they've talked about this with their coach, and the coach is, you know, provided information about this a little bit. I will not be able to sit in the stands and watch her. So I'm gonna have to just get her time afterwards. Which completely sucks because you know how much joy again like glass window that you couldn't stand behind the watch. Now not. I mean, it's some of them have that sum pulls you but her pool doesn't very select. Few have that. And even if there were, every parent would want gather round, and we'd have to all be six feet apart in ass watching us. I can tell Robbins so many questions completely sucks, right. It completely sucks. Meanwhile, you know, I see like the governor not doing this. Yeah, well, okay, So, yeah, That was the question answer. You're telling. I feel like I missed something very close Attention. Well, this is what makes me mad. It's like I have to follow all these rules. And I don't like my 10 year old has to follow all these rules. And then I see You know? Yeah s s so let me repeat, Just make sure heard this. Yeah. Your daughter, 10 years old has to wear a mask into a pool into a pool. You an indoor pool. You can't be in the same room toe. Watch your dog I can. But yet the governor's said this about 10,000 people on his lawn, many not wearing masks, all who's your citizens should know. Peacefully protest ng and demonstrating for this cause. Is a noble one that rightly protected by our first Amendment. This isn't the right cause I must have missed something. I don't think this isn't the right car. It's not the right cause my daughter and her is just not the right cause. It's not the right car Swimming is just not the right cause. If now, just hear me out. What if she wears A bathing suit that says black lives matter on it. I don't know. I mean, perhaps that would help. Maybe that would be it. I just I'm not gonna have her do that. I don't want to. I want to do that. You know, there is that whole. There's the whole thing of having your dead having her doing.

"Got some breaking news. The US economy at a twenty thousand jobs in the month of February is the unemployment rate has failed a three point eight percents across this nation. Ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to Trump's economy. You can't complain about it whatsoever. If you do then, you're overlooking. The very obvious outstanding economy that has been percolating for the past few years, the pig not across the not only across the country, but right here in Austin. Yeah. Yeah. It's kinda hard to run and jump in here at five one two eight three six zero five ninety but. Yeah. But that had a scary that read Maga hats scaring, everybody said back in twenty eleven scary orange man puts he wraps kids up like baked potatoes in cages along the border. I'll tell you now while officials at the Austin independent school district working to improve schools at programs now, the number of students on a weightless for charter schools is at a new high this, according to re report released by the Texas charter school association, Eric Cargyll with KFC and she covers education. It has been for many years. The report pinpoints two things take a look at this TC a says in Austin about twenty five thousand students are currently enrolled in a local charter school and almost ten thousand students were on a waiting list. Just this past fall can get into these schools. Now prefer for perspective this school year IFC has just under eighty thousand students. This report says that some of the benefits to sending students to charter schools include more focused experience that will prepare them for life after high school students needs are put before bureaucracy. But critics they have been saying all along that charter schools hurt traditional public schools. Not just taking students, but also taking state funding. Now, Scott melter is the founder of friends public schools. They issued a statement. It's disappointing to say the TC essay implied children are languishing in their neighborhood public schools while waiting for a spot to open out of charter school, that's complete nonsense. Let's be clear charter schools do not outperform our neighborhood public schools, and they certainly do not offer as many programs and extra curricular activities. So very hot topic go very hot topic. Thank you, Eric Cargyll from KFC, certainly motivation. I mean, this this might be an opportunity for public schools to to really have to up their game in the competition. Is there the pressure's on they're going to have to get really created a lack that competition though. Well, they don't they don't. But it's a moment that they're going to need to seize and. This is a time especially here in Austin, if they can't fix some of our east Austin schools that are on the verge of being shut down by the state. They've been labeled underperforming for years. If the school district doesn't do something then all of those parents should demand charter school availability. They should demand changes. They should expect more from their school board. Yeah. That's right. St. is going to have to really up their game. They're going to have to really rise to this occasion. And and make it work because it's it's a changing landscape is seven thirty seven here on the Totta, Don show, and I'd love to reach out to Austin Republican women if you especially if you ten attended that luncheon this week at I think it was at Shazia I wasn't there. But somebody sent me a video from that luncheon. I think it was just yesterday as a matter of if you want to find a women's watching. It's going to be absolutely no doubt about it. But apparently, I'm not even sure how big of a group. This is Austin Republican women, but they get together. Have lunch, and they have all kinds of things they do a variety of things in our community. And when they were having their lunch luncheon yesterday, a nasty woman showed up a nasty woman showed up pointing their finger pointing her finger in everyone's face just yelling at every one of these Austin Republican women at their luncheon inside this business, it's become while it is. I mean, it's abso- Alinsky kind of stuff. I mean, it's. There are a variety of videos, progressives, attacking Republicans in restaurants, and it happened. Again, this time see I don't think she was arrested. This video goes on for about four minutes. It took me took me a lengthy period of time. Just a beep. The cuss words here is just a small portion of that video. That's now posted on my Facebook page at Todd Jeffries AT ex. You can do anything. Ask. Right. On american. Yes,.
