"You know, you hear a lot of companies and businesses saying, how can I help? How can I reach out? How can we create more diverse businesses and it seems to me that microloans are a an important part of that, right? That expanding out microloans. Absolutely small entrepreneurs is where you actually create more black owned businesses, more Latino owned businesses, more women owned businesses. Absolutely. I mean, I am just proud that we can double down triple down. You tell me how much more relevant grameen is today than it was even coming into this moment in history, really. We were born out of bridging the inequity. The income inequality, the inability for black and brown women to have equal access to capital. We were born out of the fact that women are disproportionately under invested in that $1 out of $23 before COVID-19 when the economy was good, was being given to a woman entrepreneur. Pretty unacceptable. 4%. So when you bridge that and now you look at obviously the health pandemic, which has disproportionately affected families living in poverty. The economic impact on small businesses and micro businesses and then the moment that we are in the very necessary moment we are in in terms of fighting for and making a change now in eliminating systemic racism and inequality. We're in that mission. We always have been and I think that the role and the need is even greater than ever. So many, many things have to be changed, but one of the fastest ways is to give them equal access to capital and the American Dream. I read that like 99% of your loans are repaid, which is pretty great. So I mean, it's amazing. Yeah. Amazing. But you may face a future where it may not be that high because of the economic crisis. And that may be fine, I guess. I think it's expected. I mean, I have to say that when I'm stunned at is that of the new loans that we've issued because people have wanted more money than new loans that we've issued since April 1st. It is over at 99% repayment, which is just extraordinary. And inspiring. But certainly some of our members who are in some of our more distressed businesses who have been challenged with health issues themselves for those members we have been giving them relief, giving them a longer time to pay. We have actually stood up a fund to give assistance to those who have been affected by COVID themselves, but in the hospital, it has been heartbreaking work. Guy, we've lost 35 members now as of this morning over the last four weeks. I do think that it speaks to the low income predicament of multiple generations living together, no place to isolate, so even if tested, positive, very difficult. And 25% of our members have either been affected or had someone in their family impacted with the disease, but we believe that if we can fund these entrepreneurs, that will be the rebuilding of America. When you think about Andrea, your career and your in your journey as a leader in your successes and failures and what you learned from those and also, you know, your opportunity to get better at what you do. Do you think that you that you have leadership skills from the beginning or that you actually learned how to be a leader? I think that I've learned how to be a leader, you know, I was born with certain attributes and DNA that have helped, I think that I'm not really afraid. I have a lot of courage to be bold and sort of stand apart. I think I have empathy, to listen and understand the point of view of others, and I'm a big believer in pathetic leadership. And hopefully, people would say, you know what? She's pretty authentic. Doesn't mean I'm always going to agree with her, but there's the different agenda. And I think when you bring those three leadership aspects, empathy, authenticity, and encourage into this moment, it is a foundation for leadership strong leadership. As Andrea Jung, president and CEO of Crimean America and former CEO and chair of Avon. By the way, when Andrea took over at grameen America in 2014, she pledged to take a salary of $0.

"Like, okay, Andrea, you know, this has been a tough week or a tough month, and I have got to symbolically find myself and rehire myself and come back almost a different person. But how do you do that? It's little and big things guy. You know what? I ran this meeting this way. We didn't make the decisions fast enough. Starting next Monday. I mean, I have got to change the process. And we're not going to go two weeks to make those decisions or have 5 people have to be in between the proposer and the final sign off. So we're going to have to actually change that. So that's one. And it's all the way to this strategy just because we said it just because we told Wall Street, this is what we're going to do. If we need to reconsider that, we have to be bold and say, no, you know what? New CEOs come in all the time and change strategies. And it's okay for them to do it. He or she is allowed to do that. Existing CEOs are going to it's a little more difficult because it's something you said to months ago, two years ago. Yeah. But if it's the right thing to do, you have to do it. While you were the CEO, who did you go to to kind of check in and make sure that, you know, that you're doing it right. When you're running this Fortune 500 company, I mean, it's a pressure cooker. And you are held to a different standard because you are a woman and an Asian woman, one of the few in out of the Fortune 500. And it's like most of these companies are run by old white guys. So who did you lean on during those times? I'm a big believer in having a leadership coach. I was very lucky to have several over the course of my career who were extraordinarily helpful..

"And would be very difficult for the Avon representative. So what we were trying to do was to create a new brand, different products, different price points that wouldn't cannibalize, and that would be synergistic, but allow some of our customers to trade up into another brand. And this is a more able to reach it. It was more expensive brand. But it's not easy to be Toyota and Lexus without changing the brand name. Right. That people who are used to buying a $3 and 99 cent lipstick are going to be hard pressed to buy a $12 lipstick with that same brand name. And we did pick two retailers to sell the brand into. At the end of the day, the retailers had strategy changes. It was JCPenney and Sears, neither of whom are in the business anymore. But at that time, I think the lesson learned there was cut your losses quickly. Yeah. We just said, you know what? This isn't going to work and we can hemorrhage more money on this, but that doesn't make any sense whatsoever. So every leader makes a strategic decision that doesn't make sense at some point, if they're in that position long enough, I think we all do. But not making quick decisions to cut your losses to admit failure and move on is part of the problem. I remember Steve Jobs, one of the things he always said was, you know, fail forward. If you don't fail, you're not risking enough..

"Welcome back to wisdom from the top. I'm guy Roz. So when you got to Avon, I mean, the business model depended primarily on direct to consumer, we can't correct today, direct to consumer, which means something slightly different. But it was representatives around the world who would receive a commission based on the sales of cosmetics they would make. Yes, I would say, though, that the one thing that I used to tell all of our employees worldwide and all of our sales associates was that, you know, what we really were selling was an earnings opportunity for women. Over a 125 years ago in 1886, the company was incepted by a very prescient man. He was a direct seller, door to door seller, and so where he was extraordinarily ahead of his time. Was he gave the first Avon lady, misses PF E alby, the opportunity to work outside the home when that was heresy. And it was not a popular thought, but he was about equal opportunity for women, not just men to actually earn their own money and get out of the home. And that really is the founding essence of Avon and it still is today that it is obviously about women's products, but more importantly, it was about entrepreneurship opportunities, independent business opportunities for millions of people..

"And then secondly, it was very, very domestic focused. And so I had never had an opportunity to work for a global company. And I think the concept of a very global company and the opportunity to really be able to be everybody's beauty brand, not just people who would spend $40 on a lipstick. The decision to go to Avon, very appealing to me. So I made the switch. Back at the end of 93 beginning of 1994 and it ended up being a life-changing thing for me being at Avon. So Avon was really, I mean, this is sort of hard to imagine today because the culture of door to door sales reps is kind of gone. Today it's just less common. And when you got to Avon, that was the business model, it was door to door sales, but also parties like Avon reps would have parties for Friends to sell their products. Yes, I think that the way to think about it that the way that the industry today and this is beyond Avon has morphed is two things. One, a combination of high touch and high-tech websites have become integral. But secondly, the concept of door to door versus social selling relationship selling are two different things. I mean, we always used to call Avon the original social network. And there is still a role for relationships. There is still a role to have both to be able to have somebody that you trust recommend a product. She could be someone that works with you. And your school and is selling it at lunchtime and or it could be someone from your church or somebody from your neighborhood that you know..

I learned avon being great. It'd be an outdoor. i can't wait. This is going to be a great topic. And i just wanna say right from the start. Thank you for being so vulnerable. Vulnerable side that again and sharing this with our audience. I think it'll be a great lesson and not alone out there So i'm excited for it But a couple of things. You're expecting baby number five. That's true baby number five. I've got three boys a little girl and now another little boy on the way in any any any day now any moment now probably literally any moment now folks may hear it here first. Yeah i think we can do it at home. Maybe we'll do it live yes baby. Watch twenty twenty twenty twenty -solutely. Here's one thing we can take away from it. Like your year myers great. I got new kid on the way that. Say the same thing i'm like. Hey i adopted a puppy and a kitten this year. We're doing great so all about perspective. Exactly they're all making me jealous. I need at least two more puppies to make this year balance out so many to be adopted crystal do it. Well laura always handles intros. 'cause i'm a little bit nervous about getting right into it but has it affect awesome. Well should grady's child come. Well we're on this podcast. My payback will be. I will do the altro and i will make it really fun and exciting or grady as well as for everyone. I'm going back. ok. Grady make sure your wife is holding that kid in just a little longer. I will awesome. Well really excited. But i wanted to start off by asking or having you because lauren. I know your stuff all the time. I'll tell us a little bit more about what you as the trainer. Yeah you bet so. One of the initiatives that we've got going on right now is trying to scale our on boarding process trying to scale our customer education process and so i- host to open our series for the company the first one is called new customer webinars and it's designed for customers in their first thirty days. Tell them to get acclimated. Software learn how it works. Learn some use cases and then the second series. I host automation hours and in the automation hours. What we do is we help. Customers have been with us for plus modestly around that area and we on one of our amazing partners. Join us and talk about some more advanced topics really revolving around. Yeah that we've got to automate yet. The most success out of our software not about baseball. I know automation hours. Have come in really handy especially during covid trying to work on their make. Sure that it's functioning need it. Would that be honor now. Is i think when you're working in your business. That's when you're like you're not putting out fires and you're just like everything's just going in years. I'm just following along your day as managing you working on your businesses that outside in approach What's working what's not. How can it be more intentional. I think there's a lot to do right now. Is is pivot is the word. I love the geller. Mantra they saw. Hey i can't do business the way that i was before i've got a pivot somehow and that's really how the automation hours reborn like. We were going to have these going for two weeks as we find the curve and it was going to be done jokes on us. It's still going and so we have to go. And it's been a really really wealth of just good information and actionable content or just people over and over. And we've actually raiders to come and join us for every single session with great And so it's just great those customers out there that know that one of the best can do for your business get educated. Be able to know. Hey there's probably things out there that i don't know it's that vulnerability i talked about the such a failed entrepreneur like we have to be vulnerable in order for us to get better. You go to the doctor and you've got some sort of chest pain in the ass. You how you're doing. You're saying. Ben tastic dot can ever better like you're going to have a hard time. I've actually gone to the doctor with my mom or and they asked that question and she's listed like twenty things wrong with their before we get there and she's like oh he's been really good and i'm looking at her like no. We're getting into this today. So i'm like what about all these things doc looking at her like how could you say you're good with all these example. I know and that's really cool that it that it just took off like that you know you were only planning on having it a couple of weeks and here we are. That's amazing now. Do you see that these new customers have some common issues that that you also have. When you're starting your business i mean. I know we haven't gotten to that yet. So i know i'm jumping ahead. But the reason why people jump into these webinars to fill any kind of needs that they have. I think for me. The the common thread that i've seen is in. It's kind of but the idea of follow up. that's the global. There's different ways that we follow up that we follow up but follow up his always the common theme. It's an idea of something has occurred. And now i need to react to it and i don't do and so helping customers realized that one is that. Hey there's stimuli out there that usually react to and helping you understand how you can react and what tools you have at your disposal calva. Sylvia that reaction

The Real Danger of QAnon

"Finkelstein founder and director of the national contagion researchers to a nonpartisan multidisciplinary research group of experts including neuroscientists psychologists. Physicists machine learning experts who study online disinformation pamela. Presi is one of those experts. A senior research fellow at the institute who focuses on the psychology of thriving in a liberal democracy both have been sounding the alarm about the dangers of the antisemitic conspiracy theory cue on and we're not at all surprised to see the events at the capitol on january six there with us now to discuss what we can expect to see next from the movement and what is within our control to stop it pamela. Joel welcome to people of the pod. Thanks for having us so first of all. Please explain for our listeners. In the most basic of terms what is cunanan and why a group called. The american jewish committee might find it troubling. So cunanan is a cybercult that organized with populist conspiracy theories largely on twitter but another social networks as well it really got its roots in a trench community called h. ham and hmi is largely considered armpit of the internet Some of the worst ideas that arrived from social media come out of. Atm was inching about the colt of cunanan. Is that unlike other populist movements which rely on trash tags and organiz based on conspiracies have anti semitic components be value add for cunanan also had an anonymous profit so these diffuse organizations that form lobs on the basis of hashtags. They have a lot of power and benefit because people can act out in the name of the conspiracy without anybody really being responsible but one of the drawbacks. They have is that there's no leadership q. Figured out a solution to solve that you create anonymous leader who can drop missives secret coded information on avon that's encrypted with encryption that he's the only one that has the key for doing q enlisted his followers to become fellow researchers but got them researching with one another to portray vision of reality became increasingly apocalyptic. Interesting and so tell me a little bit more about the anti semitism that runs through cunanan. And how it informs these theories and this movement. The conspiracy group really semitic disinformation because every single successful conspiracy. Group necessarily has to reach for antisemitic. Disinformation as a matter of history and pragmatics. The beauty for a conspiracy theorist beauty being an awkward us but the the ease of anti semitic elements is that they are conspiratorial. And so there's a long history of as joe was saying things to grab things to look for that you just need to look at anti semitism defined and then you just enter that world that conspiratorial world where there is a mysterious you know evoke but somehow secretly powerful other who hides among you and is not always easy to spot that has tentacles in every seat of power government media and finance. That's the jewish conspiracy theory. That's the disinformation about jews. Jews benefit from transparency and the new technology of social media allows for so many areas of black boxes. You know so. Many areas of the dark web so many areas were light is not shining. And that's where these conspiracies grow pamela. Going back to your point about transparency. I'd argue everyone benefits from it. But yes i see your point about jews benefiting from that. I also should point out q. Went on rose to prominence not just during the isolation of the pandemic but during a moment of racial reckoning in this country is that relevant one of the places where we see this coming together in terms of the tools of the network contagion research institutes used to to create transparency and social media. Literally our goals create literacy on social media use machine learning to extract trans at a massive scale. So you characterize the information operations from these groups like you know and one of the largest information operations ever witnessed took place in the middle of quarantine when george floyd was killed and it was mobilized by cuban on and it was blaming george soros for instigating a civil war against antifa the moral other and so that really kind of i think brings home pamelas point in very concrete terms. You had this entire conspiracy network mobilizing around the idea that jewish international financier was causing a civil war was the force behind the moral other and that that was happening in the midst of the conditions of quarantine in that force not coincidentally also behind the virus so that was the largest surge of source activity. We've seen on twitter

"avon" Discussed on Business Wars Daily

"Month brought big changes to a beloved brand avon. I made a name for itself by offering housewives away to earn independent income by selling skin-care perfume and cosmetics from home but the iconic american company is no longer an independent corporation or based in america the household name cosmetics company is now to companies owned by two different international corporations south korean consumer products giant elgin household and health healthcare which bought avon's north american business and brazil's largest cosmetic company nature cosmetic os which bought the majority of the company in a deal that closed this month. Lg is also a significant investor in the net. Sure deal. it's another end of an era story which has been a familiar. Refrain of late for nearly a century and a half. Avon's presence has been a constant in the beauty sector. Now you'll say lights from the beginning. Avon was a trendsetter decades. Before american women had the right to vote avon founder. David h mcconnell gave them a chance to earn an independent living. Mcconnell was a traveling book salesman who offered perfume to his customers. As a perk. The perfume was so popular that he soon created his own product line in the late eighteen hundreds. He recruited women. He met during his book selling days. As the first quote avon ladies in the century that followed the company became a direct selling amazon with more than six million home-based representatives at its peak. But the beauty behemoth suffered an ugly fall in more recent years value plummeted from its peak of twenty billion dollars. The company struggled to keep pace with changing consumer tastes one forbes. Report blames the company's decline on a failure to adapt to the changing role of women in the workplace. An ill conceived plan to crack the retail sector in stores like sears in jc penney after well known ceo andrea junks. Ouster in twenty eleven one citigroup analysts said quote. You guys are so totally screwed up in. So many ways that change has to be radical a report in fortune recount. The company also failed to anticipate new competition. Both from companies like amazon and from upstarts like rodin and fields. That's the skin care. Brand behind the wildly popular. Acne treatment proactiv rodin and fields was purchased by estee lauder three years later and converted into a direct selling company. The brand now grosses more than a billion dollars a year. Largely because tech savvy. Soccer moms sell the lotions and serums to their pows by a social media but avon may win the beauty competition and the end. Direct sailings appeal has faded in the us. But it's still a popular concept in many other countries and the new international focus means avon can better capitalize on hot markets like the uk where pandemic job losses led to a one hundred percent surge in new rep sign ups last year and of course avon will still be doing business in its country of origin. So if you need glimmer sticks or skin so soft well fear not. They're still just a socially distanced. Quarter away

I made a name for itself by offering housewives away to earn independent income by selling skin-care perfume and cosmetics from home but the iconic american company is no longer an independent corporation or based in america the household name cosmetics company is now to companies owned by two different international corporations south korean consumer products giant elgin household and health healthcare which bought avon's north american business and brazil's largest cosmetic company nature cosmetic os which bought the majority of the company in a deal that closed this month. Lg is also a significant investor in the net. Sure deal. it's another end of an era story which has been a familiar. Refrain of late for nearly a century and a half. Avon's presence has been a constant in the beauty sector. Now you'll say lights from the beginning. Avon was a trendsetter decades. Before american women had the right to vote avon founder. David h mcconnell gave them a chance to earn an independent living. Mcconnell was a traveling book salesman who offered perfume to his customers. As a perk. The perfume was so popular that he soon created his own product line in the late eighteen hundreds. He recruited women. He met during his book selling days. As the first quote avon ladies in the century that followed the company became a direct selling amazon with more than six million home-based representatives at its peak. But the beauty behemoth suffered an ugly fall in more recent years value plummeted from its peak of twenty billion dollars. The company struggled to keep pace with changing consumer tastes one forbes. Report blames the company's decline on a failure to adapt to the changing role of women in the workplace. An ill conceived plan to crack the retail sector in stores like sears in jc penney after well known ceo andrea junks. Ouster in twenty eleven one citigroup analysts said quote. You guys are so totally screwed up in. So many ways that change has to be radical a report in fortune recount. The company also failed to anticipate new competition. Both from companies like amazon and from upstarts like rodin and fields. That's the skin care. Brand behind the wildly popular. Acne treatment proactiv rodin and fields was purchased by estee lauder three years later and converted into a direct selling company. The brand now grosses more than a billion dollars a year. Largely because tech savvy. Soccer moms sell the lotions and serums to their pows by a social media but avon may win the beauty competition and the end. Direct sailings appeal has faded in the us. But it's still a popular concept in many other countries and the new international focus means avon can better capitalize on hot markets like the uk where pandemic job losses led to a one hundred percent surge in new rep sign ups last year and of course avon will still be doing business in its country of origin. So if you need glimmer sticks or skin so soft well fear not. They're still just a socially distanced. Quarter away

What is it that the pilgrims had in mind? And when did the Pilgrim's become the Puritans? And how did they diverge? And when does the Salem compact come into this conversation? Well, I think it's important to understand that James, the first of England was really attempting to create a culture built around the Church of England. Andre English, Christianity on and then what happened in the midst of that was that you have two ends of a spectrum kind of cut off from from inclusion in that one are the Puritans on one side, the other are those who choose to hang on to their Catholicism's And on the product inside the Puritans and the pilgrims were ones who really struggled with this idea of being you know, essentially forced into into the Church of England. The Pilgrim's being separatist left first went to the Netherlands and, um, realize that their Children were becoming Dutch more than they leaving behind English tradition. So what's very interesting about the pilgrims? And then the Puritans that followed them is that they were very much you know, Uh, Honoring the King and stand and Parliament of England. But they did struggle with the religious, um, on church structure that had been established. And so the pilgrims ended up coming to the northern colonies and the pilgrims being much more separatist, much more distinct in their attempt. T O be separate from the Church of England, the Puritans who came after them and again. There's a lot of discussion is how one really makes a distinguished distinguishes between these two groups. The Puritans. Many of them were from London. Many of them were involved in commerce and business. Many of them had been trained at Cambridge University, Cambridge University in that at that time, tend to be the kind of intellectual center Puritanism. And what they wanted to do in this new colony or new colonies in the north was to really establish Christian Republic, Um, still under, um You know the King and Parliament of England but to establish a kind of government again, As I said earlier, that might Be a a model for how Christians would live with and among one another, they established the first university in the colonies, Harvard University. Established. You know, in the name of John Harvard, who was a Puritan from Stratford upon Avon and in 16 36. This this college became a university was established. Train pastors and to give a high level of education to the leadership of the Puritan communities

How many times I hear that? It's still great. Please have a seat. 33 wi VC, Rob Kendall. Infertility cats. Good morning, Of course, Last segment. I laid this out that this kind of conundrum and it's not a moral conundrum or Adam is unethical. Is that what we decided on or ethical? I think it's alright. Worried, Okay? That there's this There's this group. Of course, in the mid 2000. It was a show to catch a predator that caught adults who spooked sought out what they thought were kids online for sexual sexual purposes. And then the TV show would invite these guys the House A Dateline NBC correspondent Chris Hansen, come out with interview. Um they tell them they're on TV. They go their merry way, and police arrest him as they left the State House. And and somebody brought to my attention yesterday because they knew it such a big fan of that show. That there's this local group who's kind of doing on their own just regular people doing the same thing And the reason they brought this to my attention. One. They knew I loved the show, but two they caught a guy. At the Avon Meyer the other day yesterday, and and so I started watching this in. My initial reaction is well, This is really interesting. This is this is cool. It's you know, kind of must see TV is really interesting. But as I the Sting thing went on. And then I start watching other ones I started started to Donna. Me. Hey! Unlike to catch a predator, which yes, was interesting for television viewing purposes. There was a definitely law enforcement component to it. The police are there. It's organized with police with local prosecutors, arresting these people, and the TV side of it is getting the information from the people and then leaving the you're free to go. Was the famous saying from Chris Hansen, You're free to walk out that door. Um, And of course we're gonna get arrested. I'll set up for me to decide. Uh, but these people continue to follow the alleged predator as they're leaving the store. They follow them to the car. They filmed their license plate there yelling profanities, Adam there, they're calling them child molesters, etcetera and Look, it's maybe not things that other did certainly nothing that many people aren't thinking, right. It's not things that the average person's thinking but my conundrum on whether exactly the man I should interview these people that's really interesting. But then I started thinking Do I want to give these people published? E? Because I'm not sure if they're accomplishing the goal they're setting out to because it seems like it turns each time or individual anti justice. Than catching these people to get them off the street. And so I asked you to weigh in on this about how I should should handle this and more. The responses at Robin Kendall are pouring in on Twitter. I'm going to read a couple of them for you, Jim Rights. They're doing a good thing by calling these folks out. However, once you've outed them, it turns to bowling. If you keep following them and harassing them, that takes the good they have accomplished into a different lane where they're no longer doing good. Jamie writes. It's a good thing to root out these predators. But how long until Survivor of assault finds a local livestream attacks? The guy they're following or until one of these streamers get attacked? Great point, and we saw that. In the live stream yesterday. It was like a 40 minute live stream where this guy you know, knows he's caught. He's already talked to the people. They've already extracted the information. He admits it, Sam. He admits what he did, but they keep following him down the street to the point where it's clear a person who was watching on the Facebook live stream drives by and search yelling at the guy. And and that's a concern. I I peered cave rights on Twitter. If the police are involved with the group, I can see this has no problem, but it really sounds like they're taking it way too far. And if someone is watching the stream Congar and physically harm them, they could be liable again. A great point at one of the things one of the issues that they've had I noticed that I was reading through. The stream is and by the way, let me clarify. I think these people want to do good. Let me be very clear. I think they want to do good and get these people off the off the street and they are saying that. Hey, we've turned over all the information law enforcement after it happens, but one of the things that that I think that you're finding as I said, I keep using the term vigilante justice. Is that when you're getting egged on on Facebook, and this group, to their credit has built a following of tens of thousands of people, and when they go to the Facebook live, people are watching and they're egging him on. But they're not talking from a law enforcement perspective. They're talking about what people actually think of child molesters and what should happen to them. And the point we made last segment is Are you doing more harm than good? And are you making the work of the police and the prosecutors? Maura difficulty because this isn't to catch a predator television show where it's coordinated with police where the guy leaves and, hey, we're here, and there's many cases of to catch a predator and actual prosecutor on hand sitting there saying, OK, we have enough evidence. Go get the guy. Let's go and the police get him and there's you know, 10 trained police officers there to arrest these people to make sure that he's safe. This isn't happening. Now, in the case of Avon yesterday, the Avon Police showed up, but I think the Avon police showed up on Lee because they were getting so many phone calls from people on the live stream saying, Hey, this, you know, Accused child molester is here and this is happening. This guy's following him. But I don't think they have the ability to make arrests. Because I don't have the evidence that all they have is a scene going on in there Getting phone calls and Avon police air going. Hey, we better figure out what's going up there before something happens. And to their credit from what I saw. They took the information and blah, blah, blah. So again, I'll continue. Get your you're a thoughts. Maybe we'll get back into this later on in the show about Should I promote these people? Should I? Because I'm not gonna give their name until I kind of Feel that I'm doing good by promoting what they're doing, and how should this be handled in? Are you in favor of this at Robin Kendall on Twitter at Robin Kendall on Twitter. Maybe we'll jump back in They will even get some phone calls later. We'll get back into it seems to be a pretty popular topic. 93. W I. B. C Rob Kendall in for Tony Katz 11. It's this line Harris Cabinet. This election was stolen.

Apple Loses A Copyright Lawsuit

"Federal judge has dismissed. Apple's claims that mobile device virtualization company corral corallium violated copyright law with its software that allowed folks to run ios on pc's quoting the washington post in a ruling that has wide reaching implications for iphone security research and copyright law a federal judge in florida throughout apple's claims that carelli had violated copyright law with its software which helps security researchers find bugs and security holes on apple's products. Corallium co founded in two thousand seventeen by husband and wife. Amanda gordon and chris wade was a breakthrough insecurity research because it gave its customers the ability to run virtual iphones on desktop computers. Corallium makes it to use physical avon's that contain specialized software to poke and prod. Ios apple's mobile operating system. The judge in the case ruled that carell liam's creation of virtual. Iphones was not a copyright violation in part because it was designed to help improve the security for all iphone users. Corallium wasn't creating a competing product for consumers rather it was a research tool for a comparatively small number of customers. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment in the lawsuit. Apple argued that crawley products could be dangerous if they fall into the wrong hands because security flaws discovered by liam could be used to hack iphones. Apple also argued that chromium sells its product indiscriminately claim corallium denied dread. Rodney smith called apple's argument on those claims quote puzzling. If not disingenuous quote smith found that chromium used a vetting process before selling its products to customers. Apple initially attempted to acquire corallium in two thousand eighteen. According to court records when the acquisition talks stalled apple sued corallium last year claiming its virtual iphones which contain only the bare bones functions necessary for security research constitute violation of copyright law apple also alleged corallium circumvented. Apple's security measures to create the software thereby violating the digital millennium copyright act that claim has not been thrown out and quote. So i was already to say this was a dumb lawsuit but apparently companies have won a similar cases in the past around copyright but most in the digital security community praised this result. Let me quote at pony. All the things on twitter quote. This is a big deal for security research in particular but also other parts of tech apple case was an insanely broad assertion. That emulating iowa's firmware on something. That's not apple's own hardware violates copyright rather than covered by fair use. Imagine if. That argument had prevailed that emulation of a binary even for wildly different purposes such as security testing that binary is a digital copyright infringement. Might as well have back named afl to automatic federal lawsuit in that scenario was such a dangerously broad claim if the logical conclusion of your lawsuit is windows being a terms of service. Change away from overnight bankrupting vm. Ware to force everyone to use your and turning security testing of compiled binary into lawsuits.

Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker

"100 years ago, Madam C. J. Walker was the richest, self made woman in America. She battled both racism and sexism in a post abolition world. She created an empire of hair care products for black women, and she also employed an empowered thousands of black women across the country. Her story is the subject of a Netflix series called Self Made. Inspired by the Life of Madam C. J. Walker. The show stars Octavia Spencer as Thie, tenacious businesswoman, and Blair Underwood plays her husband. You see him struggle to live in the shadows of his wife's massive achievements. You might know Blair from L. A law dear white people or sex in the city. He also starred in the Broadway production of a Soldier's play. I talked to Blair right around the time. The play had to shut down early because of covert 19 back in mid March, and I started off by asking him why Madam C. J. Walker story is so important. She accomplished something that was just a monumental An extraordinary at the turn of the century in the late 18 hundreds and building this hair care empire Ah, woman. An African American woman, um, during that period of time to to earn that kind of money she did, And as you as you said, she employed and empowered thousands of African American women all over the world, So she was really you know, before Mary Kay or Avon or M Way she was creating distributors. People could have their own businesses and be their own business people at the time, So it was really extraordinary. It was amazing what she created, especially given the times in which she did it. Yeah, the early 19 hundreds. Incredible. So let's take a listen to a clip from the new Netflix series Self. This is you. Yeah, This is you and Octavia Spencer as husband and wife. New hotel downtown. The iron figure you will meet wouldn't go down. There could be a bell half you could do laundry. You don't just plant a seed and expect fruit the next day. Color women here. Just gotta get used to that idea. Somebody was doing ahead as all you know. I always love you big ideas, but I'm not going back to long enough. Now. Wait a minute. No way. Don't all made sacrifices You won't do was best for this family. Yeah, so there's definitely some tension. Attention that we hear that Cliff. How would you describe the relationship between your character CJ Walker and his wife, Madam C. J. Walker. Oh, loving but strained. I say, loving first, because I think that's the most important thing to know about. These two people is that they have great had great admiration for each other and affection. They came together and fell in love before she became successful before she became Madam C. J. Walker. Her name was Sarah. Breedlove. And my character's name is Charles Joseph Walker. So she's known in relationship to him. Mrs. CJ Welcome, Madam C. J. Walker, Um and then when she because of because for intellect and her driving her tenacity and her persistence. She as the brand became more famous, and she built. She was the driving force behind the empire that she built. And it was ah, a lot for him to swallow in tow handle into process on a day to day basis and There's alcoholism involved, and there was a womanising involved. And you know he himself was a man of his times on did not want to be defined by the woman in his life, no matter how much he loved her. It was very hard for him to just find his equilibrium in the midst of all of that. Yeah, and to figure out how to play second fiddle and still, I guess, maintain his masculinity or maintain the image of masculinity at that at that time, that's right and still feel of worth in a value. How did you get yourself into into that head space? That sounds like a really intense head space to get into. Well, you got nothing with acting you just Ah, In the simplest terms, we we played from people and we believe it A cz long as you believe more specifically that that you want this woman to win this woman that you're in love with that you want her to when you want her to succeed. And if you live in that space, and then all these other dynamics coming to play her becoming more successful, who are becoming more famous for becoming more well known, and then her ideas are the ones that really work more than your own. And then you you feel less diminished. But if it's rooted in the fact that you bonded and you came together as a team because of the respect and admiration and love for each other. Everything else kind of falls into place. You've been married yourself for 25 years. Did you draw on any of your own experiences in figuring out the power dynamics of a partnership for this role? Uh, yeah, I think you know you draw them everything you've got, because I was sorry. I should be more specific. I guess I'm wondering like you're a famous person, and I'm wondering if there's anything for you not even in terms of like gender roles. But just just just what it is to be a person who is in the limelight and and also trying to make sure that they're there. Partner comes along. With them and shines just as brightly. Wow, you know, Tommy, That's that's really great question. I I do think what What I've learned is that it's important to make. I find everybody around. You feel of value, but you're asking specifically in relationships. But I think that's important, too. You know that your spouse in that marriage or relationship that has a kind of dynamic Where one person maybe more known to the public. And it's more public facing that that person is aware Of how your mate might feel. My my wife doesn't care doesn't look for it, which is great, So it's a part of its part in parts of what I do as a professional is part of my profession. So there's no conflict in that respect, but But there is a sense of you know that it's important that she knows that she is valued in her world and heard her desires and her passions. And I think that's true for any relationship, so I definitely you know. Use that and this character just understanding that

Kevin Scott and Reprogramming the American Dream

"Let's let's jump into the book as you said in your introduction. The title is reprogramming. The American dream the subtitle of the book is from rural America to Silicon Valley. Making a I serve us all and the book is published by Harper Business. It's available now for purchase wherever you buy books one of the first things that we talked about. Really in one of our first discussions was that You know storytelling as you say is a southern thing. Tell me the story of the origin of this book in the story that you wanted to write about. Well I've been part of the development of technology for a really long time and technology itself was the way that I was able to build a life for myself like I think in a whole bunch of ways like it really saved me as a as a kid. It was the thing that I latched onto that help. Give me something productive to do with all of the energy that I had like. I just got really lucky. That personal computing was emerging. Right at the time. That you know is Preteen I was just trying to figure out what to do with myself and I got hooked in it has served as a platform for me for building a career and for doing a whole bunch of things that I think have been helpful to other people in at least some small way is and when I look at the state of technology right now like we have never had a more powerful platform in terms of Technology. So whether it's You know like the set of things that we're using right now to record this podcast. Because we can't be physically proximate with one another. Yeah the amazing networking technology that we have right now. Like computers that let us stay in touch with one another and interact and collaborate. You do really interesting interesting. Things would otherwise be possible but like I have particularly been involved with the development of for the past fifteen years or so so one of the first big projects that I worked on when I left academia to go work in industry was the machine learning thing and I've just sort of watch this technology progress in both power and accessibility and like what I mean in particular by that is power is like what you're able to accomplish with the tools machine learning and accessibility is like who is able to use these tools to create the. It's just been on this incredible curve on both dimensions and I sat down to with you. What is it now? Two and a half years ago when we started this whole process Seems like only yesterday? Yeah it does but you know the thing that I wanted to make sure was that people understood stories of how they could choose to use this technology to help build a better world for themselves and for their communities in this very inclusive way and like I wanted to make sure that there are things about the development of machine learning and its uses that we need to be cautious about but like I want people also feel sort of hopeful about what it is that they can do with these tools. Yeah well the PODCAST is behind the tech and one of the things that I really enjoyed is learning your story. You know from Gladys Virginia to places like Illinois in Europe and in Silicon Valley. So it's a really terrific Story I want to jump into the introduction here and topic on a I in the introduction. You address the question that is on. Everyone's mind which is wind will general artificial general intelligence or Agi. When will it be available win? Will computers the smart is as humans. So I'd like to ask you to read a from the introduction which you address that question okay. Yeah it'd be happy to so even though I have neither the expertise nor the crystal ball to predict exactly when Agi might arrive. I've been involved with modern technology long enough and read enough history to know that we've often underestimated the speed with which futuristic technology suddenly arise. Avon has historically been limited in what it has been able to accomplish by the amount of compute power. We can throw a day our problems and how much time it takes for humans to encode logic and knowledge into Ai Algorithms. We now have enormous amounts of compute power in the cloud and we have enormous databases of digitized human knowledge like Youtube and the kindle bookstore that can be used to train. Ai Systems as their modern. Ai Algorithms absorbed that human intelligence to accomplish your task we imagine for ai powered systems we may achieve what Thomas Kuhn defined as a paradigm shift one which humans will either be in the loop or out which one of these options we reached depends on our actions. Today the story re craft and the principles we assert about what kind of world we want children to live tomorrow. I feel this profound sense of cognitive dissonance. The same thing that can advance humanity can also cause people distress and even harm. This book arises out of a powerful urge outfield to reconcile the two. It is an engineer's tale. Not The musings of philosopher economist or screenwriter as Microsoft chief technology. Do I skin in the game. Of course I do. But also the product of rural America one of the places most vulnerable to the dystopia in story of AI. My values and many of my earliest experiences as a budding engineer occurred in a part of America Rural America. That is most at risk. I left the rural south over two decades ago I for academia and then for Silicon Valley and the tech industry but it by core I am those people rural people and I care about creating future that values them and their resourcefulness. That's great thank you.

Iowa caucuses: Buttigieg and Sanders in airtight race for the lead

"So partial results as we as we record this from the Iowa Democratic Caucus just released Tuesday afternoon after Monday. Night's delay have Pete Buddha judge and Bernie Sanders in the lead former South Bend. Indiana mayor people to judge was in the lead with twenty seven seven percent of delegates and delegates. And say I accept that one lady that was not a fan when he was married to a man in third and fourth respectively are Elizabeth. Warren eighteen percent and Uncle Joe Man Sixteen sixteen percent for Joe Biden. The release of the partial count comes after heavy criticism of course of the vote counting process in the state that forced the Democrats to delay releasing using the results after the caucus. These results are based on sixty two percent of the votes from priests precincts in all the ninety nine states. It'll get easier Also I read that. There's lots of other states that are using this kind of technology like Nevada's next and three weeks like don't worry. We got under control because this APP was a disaster voting seems pretty rudimentary like it seems to this day and age. Figure this one out card in the slot My feeling with the more sort of I think in California you can vote like ten days or the election we also have stuff for like people go door to door and get your vote and bring it in for themselves and then. There's all the controversy about whether it's of oppression of colored people or whatever they're complaining about my feeling assists. Let's just go have a day. You fucking vote on that day or you. Don't vote on that day. It's it's on the calendar. It's almost coming. Do you think that should be a national holiday so awesome. It should be a national holiday or should be able to do a half day or there should be basically rule that says look. I've lived all over the place. I'm not particularly motivated. And there's always a place to vote. It's down at the church. It's down corner parts now that the school to whatever it's all kind of on the way and then people go. What about some of these people live in rural Mississippi and they only have a donkey? Okay the maybe they. They'll vote. We'll get by on it. And then and then they go well. Shouldn't they be allowed to vote. Well here's the thing when you live in the fucking sticks. You don't have access to a costco. A lot of schools. Don't have accents or live in the fucking sticks. That's your your thing. Now there's probably advantages that go along with that and you can kill all the Avon ladies you want to stash them under your port and nobody's wiser Weiser Avon ladies myself but if you're off the grid wouldn't cadillacs line to find more fascinating about this whole thing is just how how much how much weight people put on is there. A state that is less representative of what the Modern Democratic Party is Iowa the whole state of Iowa there are less people than in Los Angeles Orange County one. There's like one black guy in Iowa right isn't that how many who's there the representative of the of the cheap modern Hakka who cares. I don't I'm sorry I don't care what people in Iowa think about. Who should be the next president? Why don't we matter more in in California? We're we're like half the United States is here because we're a bunch of liberal Douche. Nobody cares about us. Well we have a black listeners. A female ALF. We need you to move one so that we can repopulate number one number two. So there's all the controversy make it make it a holiday or half day or whatever again if you if you live on a fan vote on the swamp. That's your fucking business. You may not get to vote on this debt because we're just having a day you show up or if it's important to you park available at that day in in Uber and to extend the and show an ID and if you don't have access on ide- let's work on that too because it's two two thousand twenty everyone needs an ID. You can't travel. You can't have a life. You can't book anything you can't. You can't really pay taxes. You're not on the grid if you don't have an ID you're you don't exist assist in this country in any meaningful way and you can't take and you can't give if you don't have an ID so let's get you an ID. Let's pick a day as making a holiday. Alday go and show your. Id cast vote and that'll be it. We'll be waiting for stuff to come in and all that and look if you happen to be in Hong Kong along and you move there for years ago for business maybe you don't vote for four years that's fine and that's a that's a choice.

Stacy's returns and they said no but come back in a few hours we might do so I did and and and they did they had one so I bought it it's cheap and not telling you so not any and it it was it was in the stools let's put it that way and that's you know the Labor bitch about the seat I mean there could but it was pretty good and I found myself sitting next to Mary poppins mother this was the mother of the actress playing Mary poppins when I saw it the week before on its opening I have noticed that Mary during two scenes drinks tea from a teacup and had been holding a teacup with little finger extended which we don't do is we Do because as I think I have explained on this podcast before can you remember it's because they used to do it in the fridge olden days what was it the Court of Louis Fourteen fifteen sixteen and it meant that you had the club if you get drunk you take a little pinky oh P- yeah it was a code for saying I've got the KLOPP up you've got the club yeah we can have into 'cause well yeah you it was not polite to sleep someone without letting them know that you had syphilis so you put your little finger out when drinking tea at court of an evening the other school of thought because that particular strain of syphilis was so strong at the time it made your joints stiffen up so you physically couldn't wrap your fingers round so either way gets it's syphilis related so I was having chat with easy Stalin's mother and during the interval and we were chatting about one or two things and she said Oh some of the costs went shore if they they should be saying mammal mom and I said Oh it's definitely Ma'am and she don't we do not get things rights and at that point I thought well here is my opportunity Yep so I said I just point point one other thing out could you pass this along I don't think we want to syphilis Mary and I think we probably want the little finger touch and I explained to her and she was she was made all the right noises so very interesting when I go and see it next week to see if that fingers touching how can you go and see a show so I honestly got gingy visit stress how obsessed this Mondays

Trump's Ukraine diplomat provides smoking gun text message: 'Crazy' to withhold aid for political reasons

"Kirk Volcker was giving over nine hours of under oath testimony three House committees working on the impeachment of the president. It was a deposition behind closed doors but some elements of Kurt Poker's testimony have found their way into the New York Times tonight. Kirk Fokker resigned last tweak as the State Department's Special Envoy to Ukraine. It's not at all clear why this State Department needed an envoy to Ukraine when we already had an ambassador to Ukraine but it seems one of Kurt volkers missions was to translate trump to the new Ukrainian president that means current Volcker was in frequent contact with Bill Taylor who became became in effect the Acting Ambassador in Ukraine Donald Trump removed an ambassador who Giuliani did not find to be cooperative enough in his Ukraine's games that were designed designed to force Ukraine to help the trump campaign by investigating Joe Biden Times reports this smoking gun incurred volkers under oath testimony today he disclosed closed set of texts in September in which Bill Taylor the top American diplomat and Ukraine alluded to Mr Trump's decision earlier in the summer to freeze as a military aid package to the country he told Mister Sunland and Mr Volcker. I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. That is a very smoky gun in writing a member of the trump administration's diplomatic core. The highest highest ranking diplomat in Ukraine puts the trump crime in writing in a text. I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance assistance for help with a political campaign. It's all their everything you need is right there in that text secretary of state. Mike pompeo is blocking King Orden Sunland who was the other person was on that text from testifying under oath to the House on is the United States ambassador to the European Union. Now we know why Mike pompeo is blocking his testimony. Gordon Sunland is in possession of at least one text in which America's top diplomat in Ukraine says I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. It's all right there in that text. That's why I'm repeating it. Withhold withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. Mike Pompeo didn't want you to know that those words were ever were written by one of the ambassadors in Ukraine. How many more smoking guns are there in the State Department text messages in their email records and documents that Mike pompeo is now refusing to hand over to the House representatives. The New York Times is reporting tonight that Kurt Volker Gordon Sunland Co wrote a statement the President of Ukraine to make about investigating Joe Biden Times reports the statement would have committed Ukraine to investigating the energy company Burri SMO- smell which had employed hunter biden the younger son of former Vice President Joseph R Biden junior and it would have called for the Ukrainian government to look into what Mr Trump trump and his allies believe was interference by Ukrainians and they twenty sixteen election in the United States to benefit Hillary Clinton the president of Ukraine never ever delivered that statement that was written for him by the trump administration and leading off our discussion tonight or Evelyn Farkas. She's a former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration she served on the professional staff on the Senate Armed Services Committee and is now an MSNBC national security analysts also joining us John Holum National National Affairs analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. He is co host and executive producer of showtime's the Circus Evelyn. I want to start with you and where we are on this Ukraine in case you know some of the players in this case you know Kirk Bulker. What do you make of his testimony today. And what more do you think we're going to be learning about it right so as you say Lawrence I know ambassador. Avon rich who also testified or I guess she. She's the one who was removed by Donald Trump from I know her. I know her deputy. He's also being held back by pompeo and I know Kurt Volker and I happen to know from a source close to the investigation a bit of what happened today and a bit of the context I guess again this is second hand at least but essentially it seems that what Volker occur was trying to do and I've known him for a long time so I'm giving him. A lot of benefit of the doubt was to try to maneuver the situation so that he can get president the trump to meet with presidents. Alinsky the new Ukrainian president he thought that Giuliani was feeding a bunch of garbage that he had heard from some Ukrainians and one Ukrainian in particular earlier to president trump and that he needed to get the truth from zone Linski. The problem here is that Kurt volkers the envoy the president's onboard the president should be listening to Kurt Volker. WHO's a longtime never mind that he was appointed by trump. He's also a longtime foreign service officer for many years before he got out and started to work for the McCain Institute so President Trump should've been listening to him but he was listening to her to Guiliani and so- Kurtz trying to maneuver it so that he can inoculate trump and maybe convince convince Giuliani somewhere along the way that there's no problem with Ukraine under this new president and maybe steer him away from the investigation now. I can't speak to what what Kurt knew what what these guys knew clearly the new acting ambassador Bill Taylor relatively new. We'll see how long you laugh. I knew him as well. You know he was also point out to them what they were doing and they shouldn't be doing in the document that the New York Times has is a draft and apparently both Kurt and the Ukrainian go between the same guy that that Giuliani message the statement they wanted the president of Ukraine to make exactly draft three to drop it would not mention Ukrainians got nervous. They didn't want to mention Biden. I don't even know if they wanted to mention prisma the oil company and ultimately both Kurt and the Ukrainian decided. Let's drop this. Kurt didn't didn't get what he wanted though either because he wanted a separate meeting with President Trump and presidents Alinsky not on the sidelines of the UN meeting because it would have been a bigger deal to have it at the White House John Heilemann the by the way this isn't available reading of the evidence when you look at all this evidence you you can look at at at Volker for example and say this is either a guy who as as the text says is part of this scheme to withhold old aid for a for a political campaign favorite you could see him as part of that or you could see him as someone who is struggling under the burden of that desire liar created by Rudy Giuliani Donald trump and he's trying to get to the right place and he's trying to get Ukraine to the right place and he's saying look just say this. Let let trump here. When you say this and then everything will be okay? I want to express any lack of interest in that topic because Volcker and there's a lot of psychoanalysis that's involved in that. I just go back to the beginning of what's what happened today. which is the? United States went out and and not has already confessed to this crime but then kind of doubled golden tripled down on the crime to your point Lawrence. He does seem to think that he understands. I think now that their facts in contention here and given that is now been explained to him that since there are no facts in dispute you could argue process right you can say. Democrats are in league with the whistle blower. Somehow shifts shifty. You can say all that stuff but on the facts facts of it the only way out for him. Now is basically say yes. I did this thing because it's clear I did and it's okay and and to make the point that it's okay is the best way to make that is just do it again and do it as publicly as possible in the most flaming gratuitous way as you can and watching this thing happened today. I will say I arrived in Washington today from having been on a west coast making the circus for this this this week and came here looking for a Republican any Republican any Republican who would come on camera to talk to me about what's going on to maybe the worst day in the history of my life. Try to book a Republican in Washington to talk about Donald Trump because there's no one who wants to get within a mile of a camera on this day. That's how bad this day was. Donald trump that even his most stalwart defenders are like no thank you. I don't really early. Wa WanNa get near the camera. That's how bad what happened. This morning was for trump in terms of just the way the politics of shaping

EA's Origin service leaves gamers exposed (The 3:59, Ep. 578)

"The. I'm trying to arts faced Avon ability to its origin gaming service that exposed three hundred million gamers of what happened here. Yeah. So this was research, from two security companies called cyber in and checkpoint. They had found a security vulnerability where they were able to take over an EA, sub domain website. So they basically took over a your that ended in EA dot com. Okay. And they were able to basically create a website with that. You are L that stole security access tokens. So, you know, when you go on a website and let you log in with Facebook or log in with Google stuff like that. So you can do that for origin and instead of typing, your password it sends a security token to EA instead. So it's all done behind the scenes and it's just like a like a snippet of code right there that serves as your password and logging instead. Okay. So it sent to this fake EA website. But the thing was is that it's got sent to the. Security, researchers instead of EA themselves because they had taken over the page. So once that happens, they can take that security access token. And then use that to basically log into anyone's accounts. Oh, skirts stuff. So I mean. Terms of what happened was do they actually loser confirmation, or no? Because this was basically vulnerability that security researchers discovered at night, you know, militias hackers criminals or anything like that. So they found it around February. And they informed EA about it, which had fixed it within three weeks or so. Do they know anyone else had taken advantage of that exploit? No. Yeah. It's, it's they there's no evidence that anyone had used as exploit, because the, the website that was taken over those taken over by security research got it. Okay. Next of rises, visible service, which is stealth prepaid offering that runs off of an app. It's all based on the app, just removed, the speak cap from his dollar a month service, previously used to limit your plan to five five megabits per second, which is not very fast and super not fast at all. But that cap is gone. It's a limited offer. You say it's a limited time. We don't know when actually spire but if you sign up now if you are. If you're already visible servicemember take advantage of this cap, once the offers gone, you'll still get that you'll still enjoy the limit free of the cap free speeds. We don't know when the offer expires now visible, despite its name is pretty much invisible. Vries in barely acknowledges that exists. It kind of runs off of this kind of quiet grill marking campaign. You really can only do it through an app. So, basically means older, folks, just not gonna want sign up. This is their reason why they keep it so secretive. It's parley. Bye bye design parley of Reisen doesn't wanna, like I make it known. They lose money if more people knew about it. I mean, the fear of Asli is some of its older customers on expensive hundred dollars plans jumped to this forty dollar plan. That's five megabit per second. Cap was always sort of the now's the hooked or the, the catch. Yeah. Like a senior citizen. I don't think that you're right. Which is how much which is not in their wheels at all day. They say they're really trying to target a really ideal, ideally customers from T mobile and sprint, like, younger customers who have kind of flocked over to those other services aren't those like unlimited like is in that the whole point, why they float the idea here, though. That's I think that's why they removed as limit basically, to say, hey, come on over. We've got the nice. We've got the nice rise network. But we, we don't have the limits. And so all right lastly, we may finally get some consistency when it comes to security, our area things devices. The Fido alliance is stepped up in what are they? Doing. Yeah. So the Fido, alliance is a group that essentially set the standard for online authentication. There's a when you can sign into your accounts using security here of biometrics, or anything like that, that's because of the Fido alliance that they set the standard for that. It was two factor authentication from Google and you Bacau the security company, so now they're setting their scope on internet of things acuity, which has no standard at all is no laws, regulating, it, basically, you don't know if the smart lightbulb yet is safer than some smart Tico that you got. And they're notoriously bad on their cyber security. Like when you go to the store, and you buy a smart speaker something, it's not like energy star where there's a label on it. That's this meets the standard right. Like and that's like a big concern for a lot of people. All right. So I mean with this are we going to start seeing like a Fido alliance approved seal? That's, that's the goal that they're looking for they, they want to have that, you know, so that when you go buy something, you know, that it meets at least a certain standard of. Purity, the group is just starting now and it might be a little bit before. Like that comes out from one of these stories, Chak sound that Jiang amount for listening.
