Unpacking Inequities in Unemployment and Economic Recovery
"I am marcellus co bari. A senior fellow in the global economy and development program here with a sustainable development spotlight as part of the greater recovery from cove nineteen. The biden administration has an opportunity to tackle three into related challenges facing the american economy. The first one is unemployment. Even as unemployment rates have gradually fallen. Since last april the labor force was a whole has shrunk. We still have ten million fewer workers employed today than before the pandemic and because covid nineteen proportionately disrupted sectors like cleaning hospitality and food services high contact sector that also typically pay low wages. The workers most affected are more likely to be black hispanic female anion second even before the pandemic made things worse the. Us labor market was incredibly precarious. Almost half of the american workforce some fifty. Three million people were working in low wage jobs. Earning on average eighteen thousand dollars a year. These workers also see very little upward mobility looking at the transition of some twenty million workers in the lowest paid jobs. We found the low wage workers sticky for every two years or worker remains in lower work their chances of escaping get cut in half and third. The us just doesn't invest enough in infrastructure. We spent just over. Two percent of gdp on infrastructure while european country spend five percent on average in china around eight percent this lack of investment hamper productivity in long-term growth by looking at new infrastructure proposals to a workforce lands. The administration has the opportunity to address the precarious low wage labor market and speed up reemployment while providing much needed infrastructure like broadband. Roads and bridges. Should be the primary goal. We think that the jobs that go into it can make all the difference to workers hit hardest in this crisis in a new policy. Brief we provide an example. What this analysis might look like we use data from hundreds of thousands of real occupational transitions in the last twenty years to answer some questions. That may help policymakers prioritize and adapt projects to maximize their workforce in impact. I absorption how many what kind of workers will new projects employees each will require a unique occupational mix and occupations employed different kinds of workers take broadband an eighty billion dollar investment. The amount proposed in clyburn. Bill would enjoy about two hundred thousand workers over the course of a year in occupations like telecom line installers electronics engineers. Most of them eighty five percent can be sourced from currently unemployed and underemployed people from the telecom construction industries. These workers tend to be older wider in mail. So policymakers might consider a diversity inclusion strategy when hiring for infrastructure projects second. How good will be the recovery from the two thousand and eight recession left too. Many workers behind the quality of jobs created and who has access to them matters if we want to make sure the recovery for the economy also means recovery workers given the urgency to accelerate. Reemployment policymakers may favor investments that create jobs with low natural barriers to entry and that provide living wage basic labor protections instability here infrastructure. Jobs to well. They generally pay more than the national medium offer opportunities for upward mobility and are accessible to workers without a college degree. Third what specific reskilling may be required if we assume that the two hundred thousand jobs in broadband are created in year. One we find there are not currently enough unemployed and underemployed workers to fill about fifteen percent of the jobs created. The potential shortages aren't highly technical jobs specialized telecom industry. These jobs pay well and many workers would benefit from the opportunity to learn the skills needed to fill up. This type of analysis can help maximize the long term impact of these investments on the workforce and informed local reskilling efforts. They can help follows. He makers prioritize projects that can absorb locally displaced workers plugging abandoned oils for instance not only can reduce harmful methane emissions but maybe helpful to workers in places like pennsylvania transitioning from fossil fuels. There are precedents for programs like this. During the great depression federally funded infrastructure investments amounted to six point seven percent of gdp at speak it provided paid work for up to forty percent of unemployed americans equivalent to about four million jobs today. So what we're thinking about the great new bridges and broadband will end up with. We also need to be considering the people who build them and how. This is a massive opportunity to really break ground on both our economic recovery and to reconcile with labor markets card by equity and lack of opportunity.

"To zero. That boy Sean, noting that would be a huge goal of this one stands up. The puck came out from behind the net. In a big scramble and know who somehow found a way to get it in. Here we go. Review is over. And it is no goal. No goal. Wow. Okay. Well, we've had two reviews in this game, and they have disallowed both of those goals. Unfortunately, we don't know why One thing they need to start doing is miking. The referees. So that they can come out when he gets fans back in the stands, and they can explain to the fans and to us why they disallowed that would really help her if they said something. Over the P A. They just say it wasn't allowed if they could give any kind of reasoning as toe toe. Why, but nevertheless no goal, So it's still a two. Nothing game. Each team with the goal disallowed now in this contest. Air Force comes out and put some pressure on Bentley right away after the restart, But Bentley with the takeaway, and here comes Bentley into the air Force and no back. How's it down? Low centers went out front and anticipating that was Alex Schilling. He saw that centering pass to came out from behind the net, and he batted it down and then flopped on and covered it up in the paint. J just saw the replay of it. It's a good call. It was off of a high stick, so it was on the far end of the ice really hard for us to see. Where that was. The puck came out from behind the net over the top of the net, and as it was falling down, Sean Nolan had a stick up and he bats it in and from the angle of the camera. Even it did look like That stick was above the crossbar, so it was disallowed because of a high step. That's the standard. If it's above the crossbar and you swing at it, that's a high stick. Here's a tap one by Air Force and Jake 11. Up with the park. You'll fire one on net from the blue line, and it's gloved out of the air by grab go. He gives it to a teammate going by. Don't think that it would have gone in, so it's not actually a shot on goal. Let me you will chip it into the air Force and Maynard rims it around for Nate Orn Elk River, Minnesota on the far side of the ice porn, fumbled a punt gets it back, and then his pass intercepted at the Bentley Blue line taken away by Hamlet. Muscling his way past Alex Maynard.

Air Force with the puck and a drive from just inside the blue Line. A line drive by Blake Bride that's knocked away by grab Go, and then it got out of plays. Yeah, after getting a good look at that replay, you could definitely see it. It was high. It was. It was a good call on that one. But Really unfortunate. The Falcons getting more shots in this period, a lot more scoring opportunities, have not been able to get one past the freshman goalie Nicholas Grab code for Bentley. The first half of this period was pretty much Bentley dominating, but Air Force has played better. Since about the 11 minute mark. They get another shot there that's knocked down out front and then out to the neutral zone, where it's off of a stick and up into the stands about 10 ft. Away from my partner, not not very far. We had a good look at that. When we have a great view of this game, we're only about seven rows off the ice and The glasses only maybe. I don't know. J 15 ft. In front of us. We We are in play right way Got our heads on the swivel. So there's a face up its center ice after the puck got out of play and airports will win this draw and it's Marshall Bowery Bowery. In trouble Looks up. Does find a man saves it to cook Cook trying to hit Gavin Gavin got a stick on. It sends it into the Bentley side on getting back in saving it. There is Bowery again. Barry feeds to cook. Cook follows one toward the net, but it's intercepted, redirected by deadly clear out past knocked down, played by Bye. Ah Harper to Bari Bari. A shot from the near circle is wide. Dug out of the corner by Bentley but contested at the blue line and kept in by air Force. Well, Gavin has it. Gavin tied up. Stick battle along the wall. Far side. Falcons Keep the pop in play. This is cooked. To the neutral zone. It comes and a pump jumped up and out of play that hit a patch of Pinsky in the shoulder and then fell into the air Force bench on some lines that have gotten jumbled up there will Gavin's on the second line, type occupancy. Is on the fourth line. Willie Grimes has been on that top line. Those three guys were out there, but great energy. They kept the puck in that Bentley and for quite a while to 49 to go in the period face off in the neutral zone controlled by Air Force. My goal is in hell. Send it in its knocked down at the blue line by Bentley. They turn and go with it. Shipped into the air Force and cut off behind the net by Schilling gives it to Maraj is Maraj is trying to find Pinsky coming up on your wall intercepted by Bentley that was Van row buys, ran more boys intercepted.

So we're gonna be doing some renovations for a home in the spring, and we already have our contractor. Everything picked out and my concern is my husband really wants to get a home equity loan. We do have the cash on hand. To do the renovation, But he's a little bit concerned that we're gonna diminish. What if something comes up and there's like, you know what being that needs to be replaced or, you know, we decide that we really want Big free, greater. Um, so he wants to have that extra money. And, you know, my I want to know what the best way to tackle this because you know that a lot of banks aren't doing home equity loans right now. Well, they are they are. They're just not doing it to the amount that they used to. So I'm gonna ask you this question. When you say if if, if we decide on the larger refrigerator or the smaller one does he even have a say in that? I mean it all in our reality. He He has the, uh He likes more sparkly things. But when I do I'm more of the budget country. Friendly. Wow. Okay, Somebody's got to be one. Something's gotta be responsible. Okay, Good. May. I don't even know what appliances air going in the mind to answer your question. No, no, he likes stuff. All right. So So, So, Jeremy, Hominy basement jobs.

What right do you have? Um, we just we find a 2.9. Okay, That's not bad. All right. So so most most lenders will not go above 80% of the value of your home. I've got one that'll go to 90. So if you want to do a line of credit, now is the time to do a line of credit and rates are a little lower than what you have. So you might want to R us growing your taxes. My God. Do you have great credit? Do Okay are how much actually thinking to do in 10 20 grand I think he wants to do the full. So highly like 80 like the dear boy. Hey, wants a really nice friends. Mike. Yeah, Yeah, that's good. This is our type of guy. All right, So So what I think you should do is I've got a couple of lenders. They're still going to 90% of the value of your home. A lot of the banks out there have come down to only 80% of what they're lending. There's only a handful that will go to 90. And I'll hook you up with those, Um, those couple of banks that are doing it and you could make the choice that best fits. Your financial situation. How's that? Some sleep. Okay? And I love home Equity line of credit. Say, strongly encouraged them to all of our listeners in case of emergency because the best time to get a line of credit is when you don't need a line of credit, So it's there when you need it. And flash back to 2008 when we went when we had the bank industry them, right. They frozen. Froze that right, Amy, They might guess I just got letters, right? I cannot stress enough that get it now, even if you don't use it, you don't pay on it. But get it because God forbid you need it. They will never give you money when you need it the best time to get a line of credit. Is when you don't need it. So it's there when you need it. And it's there when you need it when you never thought you would need it, because if you go back to all of the business owners right now, they're having troubles that and you told them at this time last year. Oh, by the way, we're gonna have a worldwide global pandemic that might shut your business down for 3 to 5 months. Sounds like a movie. It sounds like a bad one here on day if they didn't have a line of credit then and then they tried to get into March April May when they had no receipts coming in or don't revenue coming in. It's a lot easier to be able to write that check. Before you have that challenge. So hang tight, Barry, we're gonna take care of you and send you Mr Floor cleaning product as well. Thank you for calling 31 to 91. 7200. Eileen. How are you? I'm good. How are you? I'm tremendous. Thank you. How can I help you? I have a question. I am thinking about refinancing my home.

I would absolutely love that. You have any other questions? Well, get with it. It's a good move, but I was told before that I was looking into this and previous mortgage person told me on Lee, If I planning on staying here for two years with that be financially feasible. If I could. If a mortgage professional could refinance your house and give you a full closing cost credit and drop you 33 quarters of a point, saving about close to 100 bucks a month. Would it be worth it for you to do that? 100%. Okay, well, then you should talk to that.
Slack and Teams Make Work-From-Home Easier-But Sometimes, Less Civil
"Since the start of the pandemic, we've seen a huge uptick in the use of workplace, Messaging Tools Services like slack and Microsoft's teams. Those platforms are a good place to communicate quickly and they've acted as stand in for the office water cooler. But at the same time, we reported that some employees have been taking things a bit too far. OUR REPORTER CHIP CUTTER JOINS US to explain chip to have you here for having me. So we've been talking about these services sort of accelerated popularity in the pandemic, but can you just remind us of the kind of growth we've? Seen in the past couple of months. Absolutely. So if you look at the number of users on the platforms and the time that people are spending on them, all of that has increased since people began working at home and March, and it makes sense. We don't have a way for many of us to communicate with our colleagues face to face, and so these chat platforms really become the de facto way that we get our work done. Places to answer questions to kind of talk about projects but they also ended up being places where people can socialize and just inform their colleagues about what's going on with their lives and so in talking with a number of companies and workplace experts, they say that there can also be some issues that arise because people do feel. So comfortable in these platforms that sometimes it can be they can be spaces where people feel bullied or harassed other issues that have come up. Yeah talk a bit more about that. So what kind of issues have have we been starting to see? So because these platforms really had become so essential to so many workplaces than are such. A big part of our daily work lives. Some people don't have also said that they feel like these can be places for bullying or passive aggressive behavior. A recent high profile example came in your times where the opinion writer and editor. Bari Wise, reported that she felt harassed in company-wide slack channels at the time and that people actually would post acts emojis next to her name in December, for example at the Start up away initially that the company's co-ceo Time said, she would step down after reporting in the verge showed on kind of grievances and kind of her criticizing employees and company slack channels. She later kind of reversed that decision. But but there have also been a number of cases. Lawyers have reported recently with employees coming to them and saying that they felt kind of bullied or harassed in company slack channels. One of my colleagues talked to an employment attorney in California, who had a case at a Technology company there where someone shared an image in a company slack channel. One worker said that she didn't feel that that image was appropriate for slack and as a result, she received a lot of messages calling her uptight saying that her reaction wasn't appropriate and so you can just see how this can escalate quickly and kind of cause some problems people feel like the messages aren't civil and you become more toxic and you over messages there's this opportunity to believe misread something or talk past each other. I think looking back over these past months between the pandemic and black lives matter protests. The moment has really required thoughtful and nuance conversations which can be challenging over slack. Well, that's right and I think it's also important to mention that applications like slack. KIMMY, really crucial for organizing employees and getting people to come together and talk about issues that they care about. We've seen a number of companies respond to employees voicing their concerns going straight to the CEO Insane we want change here we want greater racial equity, we WANNA see. Differences in our company operates and a lot of that has originated on slack, and so I think companies are trying to walk a fine line here. They want to be able to give employees a voice. They WanNa give them outlets where they can share their concerns voiced dissent, but they also worry at times that these platforms can become. Can become toxic. So I think a lot of companies don't want to get too involved here in shutdown that discussion, but they also want to be careful and I think the black lives matter movement is a great example of that as a place where in corporate America a number of colleagues. Their peers together using these platforms that are such a big part of our lives and and they've been able to do that through features like private groups and shared channels, and all of that around a specific topic that lets people get involved chip. I think if we look into our crystal ball here, we're looking a future with a lot more remote work in it, which would lend itself to a future with a lot of slack and Microsoft teams and other platforms in it to how can we expect? This to kind of develop in the future, the experts that I've spoken with have said they that these tools are only going to become an even bigger part of our lives. We are all so comfortable with them. Already, this is here to stay and I think companies have to figure out how do we create platforms where we feel comfortable and where our culture kind of extends to our digital platforms and so some companies for example, have issued guidelines I talked to the CEO of e Vite, which is the. Online invitation company it's based near Los Angeles and right employees went home in early March the company sent an extensive list of guidelines and Best Practices for employees of how they should communicate digitally when they were working remotely and the CEO told me that there's been a huge help to the company that they feel like that has led to people just getting on the phone or getting video chat when problems emerge instead of bickering and slack, and so I think in talking with other CEO's many feel that. They want to make sure they set the proper culture on these channels certainly feeling like they're going to be a big part of our future going forward. Alright are put a chip cutter thinks much for joining us really good to chat again
My favourite tennis match
"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure.

Djokovic thrashes Berrettini in ATP Finals opener
"We've got now. The two winners of the of the two group matches because earlier today Novak Djokovic was upset at emphatic. Take Against Matteo Bertini. The story of this match is that quite similarly to Roberts against law. It was two games all and Nice competitive in the first is having a meeting with somebody who who works and BBC TV and he said Oh. I was really worried in the first two games. This crisp just going to be a really quick match. Because you know there's one level of thirty comments as low as well and suddenly it was too all we're both sitting there thinking us quite good. This isn't it anyway at a little Chitchat and a half an hour. Later it was six to four love and and Djokovic just took him to the cleaners what happened in for those that saw the match.

So one-sided six two six one against Matab Bertini protein who aside from playing against Roger Federer at Wimbledon has been competitive against everybody to Bari Matz Analysis which I now apply a version of every single match that I watch thirteen. He played shots. He didn't play points and I felt like he played a lot of shots were irritating. They didn't turn out to be winners he did the thing that even ID David hitting one sort of decent is short and being irritated that it comes back number against chocolate country in the Fed Cup. You know Dan Dan stand there and Admi- shots which yeah I'm definitely guilty of that even very good until I hit the tree. Yes then you feel differently joke which is very good. Yeah I think it was one of those performances where to get such a discrepancy in the scoreline. You clearly needed one of the place to be brilliant and one of them to be wet off the game. I mean one of the more alarming stats I've ever seen about Bertini was that if you include double-faults he hit as many unforced errors. Is he one points in the match. Which is I'm not account remember really seeing stat line that before? That's really bad. Had it was really bad wasn't an he. He was so bamboozled by the experience that he forgot where the exit to the court wasn't some war on and that was again that was one of those really.

Britain rolls the dice with a snap election in December Read
"Boris Johnson is rolling the dice the British prime minister had been pushing for a national election and now he's got it the vote is scheduled for December twelfth so it's back to the campaign trail for Johnson's Conservative Party to make the case for brexit polls indicate that Johnson's party is solidly ahead of the main opposition Labour Party but wait a second this is brexit and that means it's impossible to guess how this will all eventually shake out here's the world's Orla Barry in London in Britain elections do not come every four years like they do in the US politicians here set the date for a national vote strategically the idea is to choose the right time and give your party the best chance for success at the polls what could possibly go wrong the headlines this morning after two mulches election night the UK has a hung parliament to resume his decision to call an election as back followed with a conservative short of an overall Commons majority prime minister may fail spectacularly in twenty seventeen break this was ultimately her down full the bars Johnson seems to think that history will not for peace itself one way to get it done in the face of the only thing the people Mister speaker to refresh the people the choice the main opposition leader is Jeremy Corbyn from the labor party he's not just focusing on breaks us open promises a progressive future for Britain focused on income inequality climate change and improve government services I am very ready to go out there and give that message in any election whenever it comes but just how much of a risk is oldies for Boris Johnson he's the frontrunner in the polls the solid to eleven point lead for his Conservative Party over labor that might sound encouraging but rob Watson the BBC senior political correspondent says this is a high risk strategy for the conservatives brexit as admitted if you like a shock to the British political system to to vote says another fax that's worth remembering that as those of volatility and and the you campaign it used to be on there and the good old days people were amazingly loyal to that process but now people switch pots as and and and the way that they might switch kind of brands of washing powder so you know it is an inherently very risky approach cumple in day they're usually a number of key issues that influence people's decisions health care and immigration with the big ones last time around this time though it seems there really is just one issue look brexit as this oversized elephants and this very tiny room in the entire reason why the election is happening is because Britain's politicians couldn't agree on what to do about the results of the referendum in twenty sixteen certainly the governing conservatives Mister Johnson wants to make it about brexit some of those policies which house it out and see brexit Ponce's by absolutely want to make it about brexit and say this is your last chance to stop Britain leaving the E.

B. C. talk to some voters on the streets of Birmingham this week they're not sure another election we bring much change I think politically at the moment everything is of the CMS and it has been a mess for a couple of years I think the country just one at the instability now I'm not sure whether in an action can give that breaks is a different issue that what if it happens if it doesn't happen my main point of concern is how are we to the country forward possibly we're going to get virtually nowhere with for Christmas election campaign is only a little over five weeks long but it looks like it could be a deeply divisive one this week opposition MP Heidi Allen with the Liberal Democrats announced she's not running for reelection because of the abuse she's been guessing the unbelievable amounts of loss of privacy and no sickness that sent out that you are touched on a daily basis on the mound station media people shout to even the straight it's come up said it a vial I thought I could carry around a particular list email last week I thought you know what nobody in the working place should have to put up with this no matter what happens with the bulls in December the British public would have to put up with the brakes at issue for some time to come the latest break the deadline is January thirty first of next year and even if breaks it does happen it'll only be the beginning of a long complicated process of leaving the European Union once and for all for the wild I'm one of Bari in
David Mikkelson on Creating Urban Legends Website Snopes.com
"Very happy to have a David Mickelson if you don't recognize that name you will likely recognize the site that he created and runs it's called slopes slopes dot com and I think we all Oh David a great debt of gratitude thank you thank you for being here you're welcome thanks for having me for being on owner Rossen Kerry today's just Ross ended and our friend Spencer and Charles were here at Sei con twenty nine thousand nine you've been to either this conference before similar ones way back when the amazing meeting being used to go to I probably passed in the hallways and they had no idea that you were the one solving all of my online battles actually I used to go with a friend of mine who lived here in Vegas and we thought US kind of Bari Pie be more interesting to go to the other side and go to the UFO convention and the vicar convention what the true believer Oh you're talking my language well that's what I do with the other skeptical crowd rather than the Arthur's or what have you so maybe WanNa join us on a future investigation or something let's tell our audience a bit about slopes in case for some reason they don't know I don't know what working to hide under for the past twenty five years or how to have not heard of snow but you started in the year of the lion king that's how I see nineteen ninety-four IC- yet what got snow going what started this I wish I could claim I had the foresight twenty five years ago to recognize you know the Internet thing fake news going to be a big problem come the twenty first century so I'm going to get a head start on it but no Not really that visionary it was just kind of a hobby that got out of control I worked for a very large computer company so you're kind of hooked in the Internet before most people had heard of the Internet back in the old ninety ninety four that's the very early days people are on netscape navigator for in back in the the usenet newsgroup days and there were no blogs even at that point no search engines no youtube yeah yeah alter Vista Dog pile of the company that made Alta this over really is okay I'm letting people go back K. situate themselves were in nineteen ninety four the Big Bang theory episode whether the doing favorite nonexistent search engine if I'd been involved in newsgroups about urban legends Disney and when the first graphical browser came out from Wola SORTA started writing up little Disney related urban legends okay this is kind of fun because carry my co host her other podcasts is called hit Mickey's and she talks about the deep seedy underbelly of Disney and did very investigation of the rumors around Waltz head it turns out he actually was interested in cryogenics but he didn't have his head frozen or any part of him actually that was one of the first investigations we realtors going out to force lawn and actually photographing the burial site or at least the martyr they are for anyone who wasn't able to access the -Fornia or Glendale at least give them a vision of of his grave and kiddingly trying to round up people on the Internet Tawhid in Forest Lawn overnight off the spot exactly what was this is the deep kind of investigative digging that's nope isn't even before it snaps and so I talked about with you before you know it kind of like figuring out a way to get into club thirty three the big mystery because it wasn't only Internet I just sort of you know the the basketball court in the matter homer and all those sorts I have been in there all the the hidden supposedly hidden risque stuff in Disney movies that's really where snow started a house and then when I ran through all the Disney legends I could think of branched out into different categories and then my wife the time started chipping in intending it to be kind of like a Wikipedia for Urban Legend Yeah not with the wikki part of everyone editing of it just sort of this authoritative Encyclopedia Urban Legends that's why it was originally called the wheel the urban legends reference phages and urban reference or legend Urban Legends Reverend pages right earlier yeah that doesn't roll off the time that does not I'm going to work so hard not to go down the rabbit hole of wanting to talk about Disney civic stopped I worked for Disney to mention working for big companies and love that kind of history so we'll talk about it some other time other podcasts so quickly took a left turn because as we were just discussing this was way back before search engines even yacht who was hand compiled yet just in index directories of websites did you get on that index but notes all word of mouth really kind of quickly became this place where everybody emailed anything questionable they came across on the internet or even in the real world and so it was all dying children trying to collect the the largest number of business cards birthday cards at Christmas cards and lots of computer virus warnings many which were hoaxes and missing dialed appeals many of which were hoax is you know before they were kind of clearing houses for all that stuff right now that was and there was no wikipedia the time so so which came first kind of the website format or the name snow pts well I started using the name snowpacks way back in the pre webbed as okay or yeah once the origin of this term slopes is the name of a family of characters that appear throughout the works of William Faulkner I'll and that has absolutely nothing to do with anything other than just way back when I was familiar with falters work so I doc named my cats nope site had personalized plate that said snowpacks and so my college roommate's called me that and when I started posting on the old newsgroups on the Internet the Stott there's you know whatever twenty million David's out there who's going to remember David I need like uh-huh Dinette so using snow pts and it really just were doubt fortuitously now it's become a verb yeah it's kind of like is Amazon Gogol it's short it's catchy distinguishes us from competitors 'cause everybody else in our spaces fact something or something check or something and we're the ones who are not yet we did a similar thing at least with our podcast is called owner Rawson Kerry because there's no indication from the name itself what the podcast about so slopes itself at least has just become a household name so okay so it wasn't anything to do with snoops the character from the rescuers which is what what my crazy conspiracy believing cousin Catherine calls it she snoops we actually did once getting Anki irate email from someone who threatened to report us to the Faulkner Foundation or so really not realizing that there are a number of people the world who actually have the surname snow he invented it's not like we called ourselves Sherlock Holmes or something as soon as you settle with me those families then you can come after me that's funny it reminds me of I think goes Murray Gelman who named the quirk after a James Joyce Reference yeah three quirks for muster mark so he made that his new particle name anyway will you know what to step back even a little bit farther again let's say somebody at this point is still not familiar with slopes haven't been there what's the basic format so you come to snaps if you've heard an urban legend or someone shares a claim that could be true or false yes and they get to see synopsis telling them either it's true it's false it's mostly falls somewhere in between and then an explanation right yes about we're doing these days unfortunately as political that's what's consuming everyone in the era of fake news and Yeah and Post Truth and all of that as lawyer work is cut out for him yeah so you you know someone's forty you this screed about some company is funding you know genocide eight of gay people in some African country or just something that sounds really horrible are hard to believe or you know Nancy Pelosi is going to become vice president trump resigns or some vaccine question right and so then somebody just has to add on their online debate forum while the to do is go to another tab and just type in snoops and then that key phrase that company and they get a handy article they read it very quickly and then instead of them having to do a ton of re research and share it with their crazy cousin they just copy the link and say please go read this note article so early on how many of the articles were you writing was it all you are did you have writers from the beginning at the very beginning when it started it was just me road all the Disney stuff the first few categories as I said than my wife at the time Barbara started chipping in in writing but said we started this back in nineteen ninety four it wasn't until twenty years later Haute very recently relatively recently back to doing it on my own and one of hired a couple of contract writers and then as the twenty sixteen election proved to be the most contentious in US history roundup with more more writers or editors so maybe you can help me out is it true that the pope endorsed Donald Trump for president. it's not true yes not wanna Vatican City as yeah how how do you differentiate all of this language around fake news versus is hoax or parodies how do you kind of internally classify all these things well one is we we avoid the USA fake news really now just because it's been completely co opted practically meaningless us like urban legend used to be just a a synonym for false or anything that you neal's they don't lie leave just call it fake news and also news doesn't have to be fake to be Eh misleading like you can create a one hundred percent accurate article only tells one side of a story you know it's like imagine a criminal trial where the prosecution put on a case of just stop there and it went to the jury the lies by omission yeah it'd be highly misleading so fake doesn't cover it all so we're still kind of calling it junk news item apparently our president has moved onto corrupt news media yes we're not quite calling it that yet tell me a bit about your process first of all how does an idea become eligible force a bunch of people submitting forms online saying please is a settle this for me or is it something you take interest in now our topic selection methodology is we tackle whatever the most people are asking about her questioning at a given time we do that through a variety of metrics what people are emailing us what the searching for on our site what's trending on Google what people are posting on our facebook pages what's what's on the front page of read it kind of there's a whole lot of inputs that gets synthesized and we don't make any judgments about the stuff is too silly or CBS or unimportant rust cover you let the interest level Kinda dictate house exactly sometimes it's kind of distressing but people are interested in to the exclusion of things are actually more substantial or important subjects to a lot of criticism where people complain you were debunking obvious satire must be there's nothing obvious out there and if we're if we're writing about it it's a whole lot of people had ask about it because they didn't get it will
