Choosing the right course for you

"At the moment i have a five year old and if he asked him what he wants to do he we'll tell you that he wants to be a fine and a builder and he's having trouble understanding that you could probably do both of those at the same time but when you were five years old what did you want be when you grow up excellent question. I think was a handful of different things that i was interested in very very different to what i've decided on his show. Yeah i think at one point. I wanted to be an architect. I'm very into my crafts and getting a bit creative so that was one of the options. My mom was a hairdresser as well. So that was another thing that i wanted to pursue. Think i still would like to do that on the side verb. If i'm really that's yeah yeah. It's changed a lot over the years. Pabst eating as well which yeah rain. Good to have a chat to you back in the day. That's okay. we can still chat whenever you want. It's interesting isn't it like when when kids a little. They obviously only have a small experience of what jobs are out there. And like you said you know your mom was a hairdresser off and not taking another one. That's what i wanted to be. When i was five and then went away from it and then came back to it so just interesting as we get older and we exposed to more different careers and things like that that we get some different understanding about what we might live today. So let's let's forward from there and go to yet ten so i'd like to find out. What sort of student were you when you were india. Ten and starting to think about vca and what subjects you liked to do. So y- attend. May was i think i was about to move schools so i was very studies focused and think i'm a little bit. I say day with how. I like my notes and that sort of thing is very much focused. Yeah my schooling. Liked it a sport as well. So that's what. I was a good outlet as well to keep me bit balanced. Yeah it is good to have that that balance particularly i reckon going into. Aca find lots of students decide at that point that they're to create spot and it makes me really sad because i think that it's it's such a good outlet win. You actually really hot to go out. And you have iran or place a bowl. Whatever it is that you do. Did you find as you were going through. Definitely something that practical israel. I think we've oh sort of come to realize that especially with lockdown recently. How important it is to get outside and get some sunshine and well to break up the day. Yeah absolutely so. What subjects did you end up choosing. Vca yes say nba say. I did maths methods. I did. I thought i was going to be doing special because i did love maths but didn't end up doing that. I did chemistry biology english and french. Actually okay great. Yeah and french's that's an iceland to have in there is all. I actually did quite similar subjects that deep german instead. And i find that people often he the combination and think. It's a bit weird. But i really loved having like that. Language was just different to the math and sciences and Did you have that with french. Slow i think science. I think after doing it for the four years. It was sort of like. Why wouldn't i continue on. And i think it really progresses in basie a and that's when it can really be used become useful when you decide to travel later on yet awesome. Sorry at that point in time when you were choosing your subjects. Did you notice or like way you are now. Did you have an idea of what you would like to do when you school. So just a heads up as you would have head from kinsey tribe side to do medicine. I think i had thought about it at that point so it was in the back of my mind but i don't think i was one hundred percent that that was what i wanted to write. I think I knew that. I loved maths. I love science so that was mainly my goal is at that point just to continue on with that and sort of kepa arpan to decide a bit later on yet. And that's that makes sense as well like you say your if that's what your strengths lie. Sorta the advice that i try and give students. If you follow your strengths and interests you'll end up being able to do courses that you want to if you not into maths and things like that thing there's no point following them too much because the courses that you wanna do require it and vice versa or if you do really like it then you should do it because you'll end up using it later on. Sorry so we face the you're doing those subjects. How one's vca did you. Did you go through it really easily. Did you have some ups and downs. What were the those two years. However they view i think yes so basically for me was a little bit challenging actually mainly at the beginning i had just moved schools. That the static year eleven. Sorry i grew up in Ever of school and it was very much focused on sporting whereas when i moved to the suburbs it was more academics. I think goes a big wakeup coal. To say i guess the competition as a whole and with basie a for instance. I had to repeat my math methods. They hit advised me like had a discussion with me that i think that was the best sort of route for me to go down and i think hearing. It's you feel like that's horrible. What do you mean. I have to repeat it like thinking that i was completely fine before that with mass and something that i had always been i guess gifted or was my strength so i think that was a really good learning experience to say that while it was hot to hear. It was the best thing that i had done. Oh that i could be in terms of preppy maitha really optimizing my busy in the following year and year twelve. It is really good as well at the school recognized that and and gave you. That feedback allows you to do that. Really early on said he just moved to the school so for them to make that call really early to make sure that you were really well prepared but as you say it's not it's not easy to hear that kind of thing and i imagined as a student at the time that was quite difficult also really glad you mentioned it because i know that i say lots of students asking about what sort of what sort of percentage they need on saxon things throughout the year and what i heart. People will understand by the example that you've given is that different. Schools have different standards of assessment within the school. And that's why say works the way. It does with the focused more on the exams because they're external and in this the sort of scaling of the subjects or the the study scores within the schools to make things more. Even so yeah. It's good that you highlighted that that can be different at different schools. It's very interesting interesting experience. I think yeah and a unique experience lot substitutes wouldn't wouldn't get that they wouldn't understand the difference because you most units are at one school move. Aca so yeah. It's an interesting insight that you had okay. So what tepes would you have the current students. What are some things that you did in year. Twelve or that you wish you had done any twelve to make life easier. Sorry i think something that. I still try to constantly. My studies is goal setting. I think that is sorry. Bake i think especially students that would have just gone through lockdown realizing how day can poss- without getting a whole lot done so just having go set in the morning to take off and yeah just feels good. You can take them off and you can say that you've been productive throughout the day as well while not not being hot on your south on those days where you had a good day and yet just waking up the next day saying how can i be better. Had i do better than the day before and now the thing is i think yes. Sorry to interrupt. But i think that is so important because i think it's really easy to think about all the stuff that you didn't do and you didn't get done whereas economically somewhat. He did get done. And then as you say if you do have an off day what can get done the next day

What Next Year's Redrawing Of Voting Districts May Look Like

"Year year is is a a once once in in a decade opportunity for all 50 states to redraw the lines of state and congressional voting District's In most places. State lawmakers are in charge of drawing those maps. So both parties poured money into state legislative races this year, and the result was a major disappointment to Democrats. Republicans won in almost all the states that will be key to redistricting. We've got three reporters with us to talk about what these fights will look like in different parts of the country. Ashley Lopez from member Station Kut in Austin, Texas, Dirk Vander Hart from Oregon Public Broadcasting in Portland and Steve Harrison of member station W F A in Charlotte, North Carolina. Good to have you all here? Hey, Ari. Hi, sorry. Actually, let's start with you in Texas. The state's getting more diverse, and it's one of many places where Democrats had hoped to take over the house and didn't what happened there. Yes, so those hopes were totally dashed. Democrats are hoping to gain a majority in the Texas house. You know, at least one chamber so they could have a seat at the table this time around because they've been completely shut out for decades, but much like every other state that Democrats were hoping to flip a chamber in they were unsuccessful. In Texas, they had their sights set on flipping nine seats. That were quite frankly, just out of reach for them, largely because those districts were drawn to favor Republicans by Republicans 10 years ago. So in case you wondered if, like redistricting was important. This is a good example. Why So Republican lawmakers are again completely in charge of the process, You know, from top to bottom and because of the U. S Supreme Court decision recently that said that states can gerrymander for partisan Basie's than they really don't have any reason to hold back. That makes it sound like Democrats in Texas have no tools at all. Is there any kind of check or balance on Republican power in the state? Yeah, well, like the last time the courts are really the only check they have right so Even though partisan gerrymandering his legal, which is drawing districts that favor of party over the other, drawing maps that discriminate against people of color is definitely not. That's illegal. And because race and partisanship sometimes go hand in hand, it might be kind of impossible for Republicans. Jerry Mander, based on partisanship without running afoul of racial discrimination laws. So and in fact, Stephanie Swanson with the League of Women voters of Texas, she said that this is actually been a persistent issue in Texas. So in the past 50 years, Texas has been found to have racially discriminated or violated the Voting Rights Act and every redistricting cycle. They could very much still do the same thing on Toe. Stop it. Yes! Oh, Texas has like a pretty bad track record with this and because of so much of Texas is growth in the past few years and decades has been overwhelmingly because of growth among communities of color groups say they're looking to make sure that those political lines draw like retain that political power and population growth that has accumulated over the past few years. All right, let's turn from Texas to Oregon because Republicans next year are going to have total control of 20 state. Legislatures, with Matt making power and Democrats are only going to have total control of seven, but Oregon is one of those seven. So Dirk Vander Hart, What does that mean for redistricting in your state? Well, that's right. Democrats here have super majorities in the House and Senate along with the governor's office, and as of January, they're going to hold the secretary of state's office as well. That's really notable here because in Oregon if the Legislature and governor can't agree on how to reach our legislative maps, the secretary of state takes over the process, and actually, in the past half century, the Legislature has failed to pass. They planned much of the time. So that is one reason Republicans were really adamant about hanging on to the secretary of state's office. In this year's election, there would have been at least some path for them to have meaningful influence in redistricting. Instead, though, a progressive Democrat named Show me a Fagan won the seat. So does that mean Republicans are totally frozen out in Oregon? As the Democrats are in Texas? You know for 2021 that absolutely looks like the case Earlier this year, there was an effort to try to establish a nonpartisan redistricting commission that would take control of the process from lawmakers. That's something Republicans were pretty supportive of, but it failed to even get enough signatures to make the ballot. So show me a fake in the new secretary of State has said she would appoint an independent commission to help advise her. We have not seen a lot of what that looks like. All right, let's head east to North Carolina, which has been the site of many high profile gerrymandering cases over the last few years. What things look like now in Charlotte, Steve Harrison. Yes. So I think it's safe to say North Carolina has been one of those bitterly contested states over political Jerry Mannering after Republicans took control here in 2010. It was a North Carolina case. It was heard by the Supreme Court in the summer of 2019, in which the justices said that Jerry Mandarin based on political party was not unconstitutional. And that was a decision that Democrats across the country said was bad for democracy. In North Carolina. There was also litigation and state court that was successful enforced Republicans to redraw legislative and congressional maps before the 2020 election. And with these new maps, Democrats were really hopeful they could win at least one chamber and have a say and drawing the new maps next year. But they had to win in rural and suburban areas. And like what happened in Texas and other places those hopes really fizzled out. The GOP kept control of both the House and Senate. And so what does that mean for redrawing the maps next year? Has the GOP indicated what they plan to do so they aren't giving any clues, But first they're doing a little bit of gloating. They're saying, Look, we want in 2010 on maps the Democrats drew and we want in 2020 on maps that Democrats said you were pretty fair, so they're taking a victory lap. The question is, are they going to take a hard line approach next year and draw the maps themselves and lock Democrats out? Democrats here are pretty worried. Here's Natasha Marcus, a state senator from Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte. What I do think is that Republicans who run the General Assembly are smart, and they're gonna certainly Take steps to make things look transparent and one more thing. There's an assumption here that Democrats are going to benefit from new maps just because so much of the population growth is in cities like rally in Charlotte, which you're very blue. But the state's top Republican Senate leader, Phil Berger, is saying not so fast. He's making this kind of interesting argument that Republican voters in these cities are disenfranchised because the GOP doesn't have any representation there. So he's saying, Look, we have 30% of the vote and no members in the Legislature. So he's saying, Hey, maybe we should draw a safe Republican seat in Charlotte. So take a step back. These votes in November have implications for political power in the U. S over the next decade. What is this likely to mean? So, Yeah, one thing going forward in North Carolina, there was hope to have an independent commission to draw maps. That's what Democrats wanted. That's not gonna happen, and I think that's been a push in a lot of places around the country, and Republicans just aren't interested in doing that. So one thing I think you can have the possibility to continue nationwide is a situation where one party may get more votes for their state House chamber or state Senate chamber. But still have fewer seats overall. That is Steve Harrison of member station W F A E in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with Ashley Lopez of member station, Kut in Austin, Texas. And Dirk Vander Hart of Oregon. Public Broadcasting in Portland. Thank you all.

To be on the receiving end of that. Well, it's been hard Chris. I mean, I don't have a whole lot of time to stop and process it or feel sorry for myself. I've got a job to do and I'm going to keep doing my job but starting in April, when the president singled me out and called me that woman from Michigan and tweeted liberate Michigan every time focuses on my state or On me, we see the violent rhetoric increase. We see the threats online increase I have had to have a Lotta serious hard conversations with my children when there are people with a are fifteen out on our front lawn and this, these are people who are looking for any leader to give them some credibility and some some comfort in some encouragement and when Donald Trump won't.

How to Get Clients in Today's Environment

"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School? I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about how to get clients in today's environment. So when Neil and I are talking about clients in this context, we could mean clients for your agency. We can mean clients for just any type of services business in general, right? So could be real estate clients as well. So we do know that today's environment is tougher. It's different dependent on your industry as well. So for seven histories maybe if you're hospitality, we might be a little tougher but you we still wanNA talk about overall. What we think is effective in terms of getting clients today. I still use the same approach and I know we talked about this impasse episodes in which. I just go out there and you can either go like virtual networking events, but the biggest and the easiest way that I've been getting customers still is I go look for recently funded companies in my space figure out how I can help them my email them all the things I would do I lay it all out in such a way step-by-step way where they can just do it without me but a portion of them descend hiring you and I know that sounds a little bit crazy but I've just found that to work. So well over the years I, continue just do that. Yup and another thing that similar to what Neil is saying is, yes you can definitely use crunch basie what's going on there but there is a service died. One of my buddies recommended predict leads dot Com and they will actually show you when this is happening actively what's the new CMO's joins a company or whatever, and I'm not sure how much it is exactly but you can check that out whatever gives you an edge. You know you WANNA take a look at it right so you know people have brought to my. Attention the recent recent but Lincoln sales navigator it's gotten better and better over the years. So you can actually see when people are adjusting as well. So using these tools will give you the inside that you need to reach out, and then just go out there and add value like meal I've mentioned tell us times in the past the people that come up to us would solutions offer us to work for free and then say they want to negotiate a kind of more ongoing arrangement afterwards, every single time someone that's done that. Done that well, we've ended up doing something with the mother, turn them part time or harm them fulltime or referring them to somewhere else, and that's how you if you're starting from Ground Zero. Let's funniest. So many of my best people and I know with you to have come from people doing a free test run from a month or two. Now, if you're GONNA use that Strategy Eric and I are talking about here, you can't just go to people I'm be like you've got so many things wrong fix it you need. To achieve them how you'RE GONNA. Fix It be very proactive and not have to head them up and ask him questions here and there yet to be self sufficient in other words, be able to figure things out on your own because if you can do that, you can show him results. DASA. People like they don't want more employees that they have to hand hold and teach and train people are self sufficient who level up their team and provide more value than what they're currently getting right now. Yep, and the other thing is. What you can do is make loom video. So That's L. O. M. dot com, and they're actually doing very well as a company right now but you can basically just make quick videos for people to just saying, Hey, look I spotted these things they get a sense of your personality in the video and you're doing a screen share your face is showing, and so they'll get a sense of whether they want to get to know you more or not or if they think you're full of it and here's the beauty of. It. If they think you're full of it while that's an opportunity for you to improve, you can constantly iterating. So if I'm coming out of college right now, I might not be good on video I might not be polished with the way I'm talking but I'm just gonNA keep getting more and more reps and I'm GonNa get better over time neal was never good at speaking when he started I was never good at speaking when I first started we've gotten better we're not like world class number one in the world, but that's What it takes us if you want to find clients that way it should work well, and then like Neil mention, there's a lot of virtual events going on right now, which are tied in when there's a virtual networking. So just use our event as an example, the growth accelerator. Well, we have virtual networking like RPG and where Neil might go stand somewhere everyone crowds around him and I might go stand somewhere but we have different groups but you know we're building that relationship and more than anything. I think some people might. Say. Oh you know you should go look at other agencies and partner up with them. It's like, no. I've tried that in the past you try doing that it's GonNa take you forever does set of the partnership and that you really your expectations are not going to be met because you'd expect an influx of leads coming in generally, it does not work out that way. So that's no. You need the results right now to go get the results right now you can't rely on someone else selling for you gotta go, Sell Yourself. Yep. So I mean, you know Aaron Ross from predictable revenue says you WANNA. In this case, your sniping your leads, right you're targeting who you want your sniping and what I would say is figure out how much revenue drive and how many clients that is per month and then figure out how much outreach that is for you per day because that's the one thing you can control, which is your outreach every day,

How HHS’s new hospital data reporting system will actually affect the U.S. Covid-19 response

"So hospitals around the country are scrambling to figure out a new data reporting requirement from the trump administration. There were told this week to send critical information about covid nineteen directly to the Department of Health and Human Services, which bypasses the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The move created confusion at hospitals and alarmed public health experts who worry about public access to this important data. We're joined now to talk about this with the NPR's Ping Pong. Thanks so much for being with US warning. Scott H here. This new reporting change has been affections wins day. Can we tell how it's going? Yes, so it's been a mixed bag I've heard from a few hospitals around the country. Some say it's been really hard. Some say it's been really confusing and other states been okay, but they're still sorting out the details of the change, but according to hhs more hospitals have been reporting this week that have in the recent past and they say that was one of the reasons. They wanted to implement this new system. Stripper Ping which changed for a hospital. Okay, well for a couple of months since the beginning of the pandemic hospitals have been reporting this daily data about the number of covid patients, they have the number of beds and ventilators. They have available to the CDC and the CDC has been gathering this data they've been. They've been putting up on their website to give updates on hospital capacity, which is you know whether hospitals have enough resources and protective gear to take care of the covid nineteen patients that are coming in, but under this new rule, hospitals are now supposed to report the state up either to their state health departments or to a different system called talent tracking, which has been set up by a private company, and which provides data directly to HHS, shall hospital still report the data just somewhere else What has some experts and officials so concerned? Yes so hospitals are still required to report the data, but they say it's been a big burden to change things up right now. Especially for those facing certain coronavirus, cases and doctors have also pointed out that the administration seems to be saying. Hospitals have to use this new reporting system to gain access to federal supply from decifit here, which is one of the only drugs known to work against covid nineteen. Top scientists at the CDC says these new reporting methods ignore valuable experience at the CDC has gathering this data? Here's Dr Daniel! POLLICK! We have a long standing working relationship with the hospitals. We have means of being able to quality checks over the incoming data. He's not sure that the information coming in from these other methods will be as good as the data CDC was collecting and public health experts have also been raising concerns basie this in the context of the administration fighting federal scientists over Corona Virus Advice, and they say this could be part of a pattern in which the administration is trying to sideline the CDC The nation's public health agency in the middle of a pandemic. And this week CDC website that the chaired that hospital data with the public went dark for dare to do. We know what happened. Yes, oh. This is the website that was getting updated three times a week, and it went down briefly, and then it came online again, but it's using old data and reporting from Alex Smith at member station K. C. You are in Missouri, says hospitals there are currently without access to critical data. They've been using for their daily and weekly reports. They hope the issues will be sorted out in the next days or even weeks, but in the meantime the Missouri Hospital Association says they'll be very much in the dark

No magic wand for business email compromise (BEC)

"Sadly, it's not possible just to waive some magic technology wand and Mike. Go Away is a complicated and diabolical problem but as a company with a specialty in email security per point is expected to at least help its customers and clients get on top of it now. Obviously, a lot of east stuff comes down to training and process and things like that right, so you can't just buy a product and it magically goes away, but there are things you can do as an email security provided to help right. So yeah in this conversation you'll hear us. Talk about about the problem and also about proof points approach in trying to minimize basie or try to make a dent in it. I'll drop you in here. Where Ryan is explaining that be scam is these days aren't necessarily trying to go fix giant paydays that can be clawed back right like there was that facebook one years ago with one stall. One hundred million people tend to notice, and you know they're not trying to do a million small payments, either it's really about hitting targets for just the right amount. He is Ryan Kalemba. It's really more about. About finding a sweet spot in between when it is too large to be easily transferable and too small to be economically meaningful, and what we're seeing now is a Q.. Twenty things like payroll, the version right payroll diversion. If you, if you add up the number of payroll diversion, social engineering attempts that we stop day, and just sort of multiply that by the average pay packet at millions and millions of dollars every day. But. It's those sorts of numbers that become really repeatable and really successful for the type of cybercriminals. We're talking about here. We're not talking about apex predators about something that is broadly democratized across the cyber criminal world, and is available to a huge number of groups operating worldwide. So what is the sweet spot in terms of monetary value? Right like where is the median level that you can do this and not set off fraud. Fraud controls. I guess you know. Let's do a step by step on how to do really good BC right. It is interesting because you have certain groups operating at scale where they really WANNA steal a few thousand at a time because they know that with a big company. That's just breakage, right? They're just GONNA call them at a minor loss and then move on. But that's it. There's a fair amount of them that are a little bit closer to the big game hunting trend to be ransomware side one. I, remember in particular was an organization, basically set up a very very convincing fake version of the contractor that was building a brand new hospital, and they spent months actually going back and forth before they knew a large payment was going to get moved, and then they knew actually how much time they'd have between the payment going through and somebody noticing the payment had not actually shown up yet and they social engineer. Engineer the payment to come across three weeks before the bill is actually do, and then they had three weeks to move that money in as many places as possible and none of that got recovered. So those are the ones and those kind of represent I think the two ends of the spectrum anyone who has as spectacularly unlucky or lucky as a as as what was the the Estonian Diner Lithuanian. They will also Indian guy that went after facebook and Google is probably on the wrong end of that spectrum, but that's just not happening that often lately.

The Harlem Globetrotters

"The Savoie ballroom was a jewel of jazz age. Chicago theatre opened in the nineteen twenties just before people in the United States were hit by the Great Depression which left many Americans poor and hungry throughout the difficult time. The Savoie was a place to find joy on the south side of Chicago. The building was regularly filled with residents from the largely African American neighborhood. Who gathered to dance to some of the biggest stars of the day count basie Duke Ellington Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong? Were just a few of the people who banged out. Tunes as people jibed across the giant DANCEFLOOR. Dancefloor was so big that it actually doubled as a basketball court for the Savoy. Big Five in the late. Nineteen twenty s the five-man team hosted games to fill the slow nights in the ballroom. A young man in cab. Calloway would sometimes seeing during halftime but back then basketball wasn't very popular people cared about contests like horse racing and boxing baseball. Not The five on five game that depended on getting a ball through a hoop. It was a long way from the sport. We know much slower and much lower scoring than today. This team from Chicago would eventually work to change that. But they're Savoie audience could never have guessed how at some point. There was a dispute among the players of the Savoie five and they broke up. Three of them led by Tommy. Brooklyn's start a new team and rename themselves. The globetrotters it was an era of barnstorming. And when not at the Savoy they set out from Chicago to tour the Mid West region of America there were no organized leagues of teams and players in the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Instead semi professional teams would travel from town to town and earn money playing teams from whatever town they were in sometimes. Businesses might have a team of employees so a barnstorming team like the globetrotters might play against some guys who had spent the whole day assembling cars canning vegetables or even driving taxi caps. Other Times barnstorming might play a team made up of members of a religious group. The House of David. Those guys never shaved so they played basketball with beards down to their bellies. Making James Harden's beard look like a five o'clock shadow soon. A young Jewish immigrant named Abe Sapper. Steam entered the picture with the globetrotters. Abe was a terrible basketball player but his other skills were valuable. He knew a lot of people who did bookings and many of these towns and more importantly he had a car these five teammates and their manager. Abe would pile into his model t like sardines attend camp and hit those cold slick winter roads. It was the nineteen twenties and they understood that random people in random midwest towns might be surprised to find that all five members of the team coming to play their local guys were African Americans. There were very few professional sports comprised of African Americans at this point so they decided to alter their name to help people know what to expect at the time. The most notable and best all black basketball team was known as the Harlem rent which was short for the Harlem Renaissance in the Nineteen Twenties and early thirties. The New York neighborhood of Harlem was an epicenter of black culture and it was a time referred to as the Harlem Renaissance. People knew about these incredible artists and musicians. Who lived there along with the writers like Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston so the globetrotters who were very much from Chicago? Ask themselves how do we make ourselves sound dignified worldly and clearly a team of African Americans the Harlem Globetrotters? Will it matter that? We're not from Harlem that we've never tried it around the globe new super nope cool. Let's pile into a small unheeded car and go beat some people in basketball and they did just that it was remarkable. How good they are. They beat nearly every team from Wisconsin. Illinois Iowa anywhere else they went then they pile back into the car and head on down the road to the next game throughout the nineteen thirties. The team built up quite a reputation. They might have been the best basketball team in the world. No one agrees on how the famous tricks came into the game. A popular explanation is that they'd slip into the fun and flashy dribbles and drives after they safely put plenty of points on the board against their opponent. This did several things one it entertain the audience. Once the actual threat of competition was gone. No one wants to watch a blowout so a fun. Show of tricks kept the locals entertained but also no one wants to watch their local fellas get trounced a group from the city coming in and wiping the home team can really anger a local audience and the Harlem globetrotters new. This trick plays would thrill any crowd and win them over. The focus slowly became not about the final score but about how much fun it was to watch these incredible athletes and their astonishing an often humorous approach to the game. I we win. And then we cloud Abe Saperstein once said now most people agree that the real clowning didn't start until a man named goose. Tatum joined the team. Goose was an incredible athlete. Who could put the basket ball through the hoop with ease? But he also had a keen eye for comedy he found inspiration and funny movies and carefully watched the acts of clowns and other entertainers his favorite gags would show up on the basketball court. Sometimes goose would tiptoe over and pretend to spy on the opposing team's huddle all while making sure the audience in on the joke other times he'd hand the refs at trick ball after a timeout upon dribbling the ball. The referee grow angry because the ball never bounced back up. It just plopped devoid of air on the ground. Sometimes goose would disappear from the court altogether while the game continued only to be found in the audience eating popcorn. He even had a bit where he would pretend to be knocked unconscious on the court. The refs in his teammates would try everything to wake him up. But no amount of shaking or poking prodding would open his eyes. It was only the smell of his own Stinky Shoe. That would get him back up on his feet again. Much to the disgust delight of the audience in Nineteen forty-eight Abe Sapper Stein was with a friend who just so happened to own a basketball team called the Minnesota Lakers. The Lakers were the best team in the brand new professional basketball league which would soon become known as the NBA. The League did not allow black players on any of their teams regardless of League affiliation and regardless of the color of the player skin each man believed his team was the best in the world. They'd never meet in a league as it was so the natural solution was to stage an exhibition game between the Lakers and the globetrotters. It didn't seem so to the men at the time but game between an all white. Nba team and an all. Black semi pro team would prove monumental. Eighteen thousand people came out to watch which was easily twice. As many people as most professional basketball games would attract the time. And despite the fact that the Lakers star center who stood six speed and ten inches tall was seven inches taller than anyone else. On the court. The globetrotters one on a last second shot. It was a powerful moment. The next season those Lakers would go on to win the National Championship. But when they played the Harlem globetrotters a second time for a second exhibition between the two teams. The globetrotters came out on top yet again. The following year the NBA ended segregation and three of those same Laker Whooping Harlem globetrotters Chuck Cooper Nat Clifton and hang designee. Became three of the I four African Americans to join the League and play professional basketball. This was nineteen fifty three years. After Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier in baseball the globetrotters still continue their entertaining shows today. Keeping the spirit of barnstorming alive. They get a lot of credit for how they support communities and bring joy to so many and educate kids about health. But it's easy to forget about how important they were in integrating professional basketball. They now tour and play with just one team often known as the Washington generals according to most sources the globetrotters have beaten the generals over sixteen thousand times. How many times have they lost though? That question is harder to answer. But it's just a few. The most recent globetrotter loss was way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy one when both teams lost track of the score when clock expired. The generals were ahead. That was not supposed to happen. And people expected the GLOBETROTTERS TO WIN. And it's usually agreed that they will today. It's all about the show the fun and the love of basketball not the competition. This is what made that loss. So shocking reports from nine hundred. Seventy one SE. The stands were filled with silent shocked faces and even a few crying children. Luckily it's been smiles for all since then

I've i've had a nice little break so i'm tan seen you in months as look. I know it's true. It's been a very generous break. Thank you thank you thank you why feel well rested and we got lots to talk about. We've got some new health concerns with vaping and and i have a lot of questions about this vaping. I'm just i'm not sure it's a good idea. We're gonna talk about that. No no no i think it's the devil's playground okay and also we're gonna talk about target getting some disney magic target and disney teaming up here so we'll get to all of that but let's begin with tesla now according to reports tesla. We'll raise prices in china on friday. That's earlier than planned and tesla. According to the same report also considering raising prices again in december should the chinese tariffs kick in so emily. You're one of our resident experts on china and now we're seeing some of the ripple effects potentially really of all this trade war stuff tesla. We should add currently imports all of its cars. It sells in china. That's an important note right there. The fact that tesla as it stands right now how is selling every car in china that they produce here in the united states so the twenty five percent tariff on automobiles that china is putting into place or considering putting into place at the u._s. Would hit tesla very hard. That's an addition to a five percent tariff on auto parts as well so it's kind of a minefield for tesla tesla right now. They're trying to meet what they see. As expanding demand in china will still navigating the tariffs <hes> for the business as a whole. The most important thing is the fact that you know they've been working on the shanghai gigafactory so factory there in shanghai china that would produce cars that they could then sell in china for a while now but they've kind of been going to their own minefield and getting up and running so the fact is is that simply they're not going to have it up and running this year and they're probably going to start trying to front run deliveries to china china and advance at the december terrified ex yeah. I couldn't tell if this was a tesla story or a trade war story or a little bit of both but i think it's a it's an actual real world example full of how trade wars and tariffs can actually impact companies in this case u._s. Companies <hes> everyone should sit up straight and listen and see how how this can impact. It's it's not like tesla was kick knocking the cover off the ball so this this is another little thing that they're gonna little another thing that they're going to have to deal with and it is the consequence of trade awards. <hes> president trump said they're easy to win and maybe one day we'll say they are but as of now it doesn't appear to be the case and when we look at tesla's business us as a whole emily how important is china if i'm investing tesla or if i'm a considering investing tesla how much should this concern last time i looked china actually accounted for about one fifth of tesla sales so this is actually pretty concerning. It's a little surprising stock hasn't moved much day actually on on this news but that might be in large part because tariffs as we've found and trade wars in general tend to change rapidly so we don't actually know what the situation will be like in december. I think we all see how quickly <hes> you know. Administrations and politicians tend to go back and forth on things like trade wars but what's what's important is the fact that companies have to prepare in the environment in which they know right now so you know tesla which has had a problem for a while and and getting deliveries out of their factory non-tobacco on demand problem as they say but it's a livery problem whether or not they can really actually deliver these cars in advance of a tariff hike that basie coming in december is the big unknown here. I think we should add as least walking into the studio. I noticed the tesla has confirmed that this is actually the case as of now just a report a little bit more than a rumor rumer think but just a a report <hes> we'll we'll see tesla comes out with a comment later. It's august ron. I mean we need something okay. Let's move onto vaping illinois officials confirming that one person has died after being hospitalized with severe lung illness after using e cigarettes now this is the first death breath reported from a vaping related long illness. Emily there is so much that we don't know about vaping in about the long-term effects. 'cause i wanna be careful careful here but we do know that it's been marketed as a safer alternative to traditional cigarettes. So what do you make of of the vaping news and as our cannabis expert what do you make of the potential link or the implications for the cannabis industry. I'll take cannabis expert. Ah my title now i'm actually it's important to note the difference between smoking and vaping a lot of people may not be familiar so smoking obviously burning whether that be like tobacco for the nicotine tina facts and that's been for a long time now proven to cause lung cancer so vaping came up as a healthy alternative to smoking. He's as water taper to get you your addictive chemicals whether that'd be cannabis or nicotine <hes> and so it was perceived to be healthier alternative because that water vapor itself was was not linked to the tar in cigarettes that caused cancer so these new reports coming out that maybe vaping isn't as healthy as it initially seemed is not good for the the industry in large part. It's just that we don't have a lot of history to work on here with vaping. We don't have people that have been vaping for twenty or thirty years to prove proved side effects so it's almost like we have a generation of of many guinea pigs. Have you been the first generation to consume vapes in any large quantities. I expect expect that we'll see more reports like this. It is worth noting that the report is not nearly as bad as immediately causes lung cancer but is to say that there are likely health effects the facts to to vaping and using vapes as opposed to smoking cigarettes yeah at the risk of stating the obvious. I think we have to make sure we keep us out of the hands of of kids because kids kind of did learn the lesson about cigarettes. I feel and now boom just when we thought we were out of the water with that generation smoking cigarettes. They're there vaping more than ever <hes> so if it's the fruit flavors or the bubble gum flavors or it's the marketing to children i think the i._b._m. Phone firmly early in favor of stricter regulation when it comes to children i mean even nicorette i believe for example is a prescription is necessary so why can't vaping <hes> <hes> <hes> nicotine also be prescription. Perhaps i don't know if the industry will ever go that for but let's just try our best to keep it out of the hands of kids and it's so interesting. Can you say that because the f._d._a. has actually been targeting regulations focus that keeping it out of the hands of kids so the largest producer in the united states jewel has flavored pods is that the f._d._a. has recently sat are too attractive to children's so they've limited <hes> a lot of places that jewel can sell their flavored <unk> pot products and i believe san francisco's outlawed the sale of a vape vaping products completely <hes> you can actually use them. I believe in san francisco but you can't purchase them <hes> so maybe we'll see more of that and before we get to our next story. I want to say thanks to net suite now. If you don't know your numbers you don't know your business but the problem that growing businesses have the thing that keeps them from knowing their numbers is this hodgepodge of business systems. You've gotta system for counting. You've got another one for sales another for inventory emily and ron what a mess complete mess systems everywhere and it's so inefficient taking up too much time and sucking up way too many resources and that is where

"Basie police how about whitewashing is in Hollywood. That's when you say white person to play a black role. And now there's another one called Colorado. That's when the role is supposed to be black and you cast a black person. But the person's not black enough case in point is Will Smith has just been cast in a new movie to play the father of the Williams tennis sisters, Serena and Venus. The movie's called king, Richard, but Will Smith is a lighter skinned black. So they know saying that he should not get the role. It should be either address Elba who's on Saturday Night Live over the weekend or Mahershala Ali green book fame because they're more of a darker black skin, then wall Smith light skinned. So politically incorrect to not have the right skin tone for the role. Would they use for Frank? They would have to use whiter than white. Wait out. Why? I think you're a little bit jealous aren't your their isn't. Why don't tell me? Yeah. I mean, what would they said don't shoot to whites? Did you on the golf course Jamaica, Michael Jackson and reverse? Meanwhile, governor Jay Inslee. He's running for president. He's now sorry about being a white male.

Let me go. I got a good recollection. It's like bare your father chop his body. Everyone's job. And then you get in there, and you get an interaction with your therapist. It's like leave the room or fight. You're there jump out the window or fight your therapist. We're fighting. We're fighting her ten times anyways came in. Then it was it was karate chop.

Apple says it requires uses to explicitly approve microphone access and apps display Klay signal when they are listening with more data files, which on by Alex, our ROY from IT, why? Well, that's without consent. I mean, apple does things with your consent. Apple is listening and getting data from you. If you agree to allow that to happen, it's made very clear apple, very strict that on the way that it uses your data bit, of course, is using you dot.
