"We're going to work really hard to to push through and to do the work and to make sure our colleagues in leadership on the other side of the aisle understand a just how important this is how it is an opportunity for all of us in the legislature to To step up and show our leadership skills and show how much we care about our communities than the state of michigan as you both know the state's response in benton harbor has not been without its critics Both on the left and the right some saying that the state has moved much too slowly and isn't acting with enough sense of urgency right now at the administrative level. How would the two of you assess how the administration has handled this dating back really to win the problem Benton harbor was first discovered a couple of years ago well We have a governor who committed to an eighteen months time line on the as lead pipes I think she can look to her home community lansing to know that that is a goal a both a worthy of setting and also The goal that can be accomplished in in comparison to Some of our previous responses to lead. I would say that's a step forward With a very very very very very little bar probably no yeah and and now indictments times in the reality is that you know. We have all known since Reports came out from the epa in flint. And what in two thousand fourteen. The ticking time bomb not just in flint but in cities throughout the state in that none of the cities after years of austerity budgets decades of austerity budgets had the resources to begin to grapple with it. So if feel like every adult in michigan is responsible for this failure and in that responsibility also extend a to as well now to say. I'm a big history buff nerd emma hamilton. So when i say history has its eyes on us it really does represent tonight will came in at the same time. So we're in our third year in the legislature. So many of these problems predate us but we have to own what our role is going to be in this moment in time. We weren't there when decisions were being made or not being made about the flint water crisis. But whether it's this governor or us in the legislature whether it's this bill package or making sure that we have the appropriations in the policy to actually address what's happening in these majority lack cities which we will continue to see I think it's incumbent upon us to have that sense of urgency just as many in the environmental community have been working alongside governor whitmer pushing the sense of urgency around addressing the issues in benton harbor. I think will also meet to rely on the environmental community and other health related communities karen advocacy groups child advocacy group. Any in everyone who cares about the health and safety of our state to also lift up their voices and make sure that these bills don't get a hearing would make it all the way through the legislative process. It would be such a missed opportunity. Walked if we were here this time next year rounding up our second term a represented. I n these bills have not been sent to the governor's desk for signature. Bill beg better would make a difference as well..

It's always concerning whenever we're talking about children. Being exposed to environmental hazards that could potentially have long term ramifications on their development. Unlike the snyder administration's response to flint instead of denying a problem in making things worse. The state is moving to fix the problem. It's all hands on deck with a task force led by lg gilchrist out. The state has taken some actions already distributing bottled water to all of the homes. They distributing ready if feed formula for low income mothers and children and this is the formula. That doesn't require you to mix water with it.

"Go through standing by with the latest in terms of cleverness for money Leanne Caroline good morning and thank you The Food and Drug Administration is reportedly planning to allow a mix and match approach for COVID boost of vaccines Moderna's CEO Stefan bansal told Bloomberg the company expects an FDA decision soon We expect this week potentially the authorization of a booster based CDC meeting which is scheduled this week to make a recommendation And so I'm hopeful that by the end of the week everything is wrapped up and by next week Americans will go the Moderna vaccine can get the bona booster Meanwhile the agency could act as soon as this week it is likely to not recommend one vaccine over another Benton's may say its preferable to use the same vaccine when and where possible Now the EU may trigger a new tool to withhold funding to member states that of failing to adhere to democratic standards the so called conditionality mechanism could be applied against Hungary and Poland which are accused of a rule of law violations the EU justice commissioner Didier rain says illegal order could be deployed within days We tried to build the most possible robust file to react We need also to pay attention to a link between such a kind of funding of policies and a rule of law democracy and fundamental rights And if we are not doing that at home like we try to do now with Poland has become to be difficult to be credible when we are speaking out of Europe about the same principles Meanwhile Hungary would lose €7.2 billion and Poland a €36 billion Korean peace stocks paired early gains after Japan said North Korea fired what appeared to be two ballistic missiles Japanese prime minister from yoka shader called the launches regrettable and says his government is seeking even more information An American Express will allow staff to work from wherever they want for at least four weeks A year employees will be placed into one of three groups hybrid on sight or fully virtual the company's CEO said in a memo to starve that a large majority will probably work hybrid schedules and will be in the office for an average of just two days a week Global news 24 hours a day on air and on Bloomberg quick take Powered by more than 2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries I'm Jan guerins This is Bloomberg Caroline Thank you so much With the world news now we've brought you a little taste of what Boris Johnson has been telling Bloomberg in our exclusive interview with the prime minister coming up next more from that interview keeping the door open Johnson says Britain will entertain Chinese investment.

"And he's like, let's work with this. So is there anything especially interesting that you haven't covered in other interviews that you could share with us? Or perhaps, there's something God is laid on your heart that you would like to share with your readers. Will you just made the perfect segue for it? Because in thinking about those arrowheads, I don't see it as coincidence at all that my dad had that friend in that place or that he let me dig it as garden once summer in my childhood. I see God there that he was laying that foundation for a book I wouldn't even think about writing for decades and looking back at that from my perspective now it's clear that God saw me that his plan for me to become an author was at work even then. Since he works like that with all of us, I just want to encourage listeners to be looking for God's hand in their lives too. Sometimes we do have to wait a season maybe a decades long one as I did for this particular little thing to see it, but I guess I just want to say May he open our eyes so we don't miss seeing it because isn't it awfully encouraging and comforting when we do see it? And just to know that you are seen by the same God who made the stars is very huge. It is, it's awesome in the true sense of that word and it's so intimate. Yes. Yes.

Yeah, and I'm assuming I was reading some of your documentation. You take exhibitors and folks almost up to the start of the fair if you've got space.

If feels like in this space. We'd have to do something similar. Are you guys working mostly with sas companies or is it kind of various and sundry in terms of what people are selling it or go broader and we're starting to to break out into a pretty wide on the on the category spectrum sas companies has been court area yummy you our core research team and taggers but one of the key aspects of the. I is that leaders. Sales leaders will come in and coach reps. And they'll go down to the specific moments on a scorecard and that's continuing to train our ai. As well as we're getting these moments of what is best from even the wieder say. Hey great job on this specific point and it's just helping kind of highway. What is working and sharing that across the team as well. That feels a little bit tougher so being able to have your own squad of taggers say yes. This was actually pricing. Being talked about in this time this actually was whatever some legal some legal hubbub issue that we were stuck up on for these ten minutes. That that feels you know. You gotta do some of that. Because i don't think your sales reps are doing that. It's hard enough to get them to put their notes into salesforce. Where we're not gonna have tagging audio files so you gotta have that process but the ability for sales manager to highlight things and have that actually feed a system in in a positive. Luke feels a little tougher or we suspect that like i. I would suspect if we're gonna have a systematic effort to say what our winners doing. Let's say i'm i work at spunk. Right some big sass offerings somewhere. I work at slump. And we figure out our top sellers into big enterprise accounts and we figure out we train. On a whole bunch of instances and a whole bunch of sales whatever we have patterns of them and then patterns of the rest of our sales people it would feel like a pretty bespoke effort between you and between the spunk sales leadership to really needy greedy. Dial in those features determine what we want to track really come up with conclusions more so than them just tagging stuff. That's good and then having the system actually tells them that that's good. That feels really tough. You can do about to. Individual teams can set up their own topics that they want to be tracking and identifying those terms then starting to look at whether those are competitors or certain types of features Other aspects that they want to specifically do now would unique is we have a predefined list of these business sales terms that we think everybody looks at so predefined. Plus what you need to you. And then you're right having the data in the dashboards assay tell us what what drives success. I think that's the key thing is based on all the data. We're collecting now. Help us understand what is best and then how do we share that with the rest of the team. He and it feels like to really get to answer there. We're not gonna again have a dashboard. That just shows it. We're going have to think about what we want to call best right. It might not be self evident and then and then probably they'd have to chat with you a little bit and kind of determine what we want to dig out what we want to track..

I'm like when's the credits said take a shot. This goal was in line. With benjamin cornell's belief that he was the seventh and final messenger of god as prophesized by joanna south cod so big big shoes to fill. Yeah a little bit. Yeah more specifically. He was convinced that he had been entrusted to carry out the mission outlining the revelation chapter. Eleven verse fifteen which read quote and the seventh angel sounded and there were great voices in heaven saying the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our lord and his christ and he shall reign forever and ever and quote so basically wants to be The messenger of to god basically. It's always it's always to me that people that are super religious especially when you're in the mindset of being a cult leader or a member of a coal or something of the sort that you all of a sudden see yourself as this grand profit or character or a figure head. It's like where was the. Where is the bridge that gaps from lake normal minister.

Nurse Leadership and Innovation with Lynda Benton and Rhonda Manns

"Talk about how your organizations are adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. And maybe this is one that that you kick us off with. Linda sure will be for covert. Obviously you know. The world looked a little bit different. But i think there's a lot of things we learned in the pre covid world and of course what we learned in the past year certainly the. Us health system as a whole is greatly strained. There's greater patient demands resource demand systematic demands. You know impacting and of course all of that got worsened by the pandemic. I think it staring to say. I think we we also saw a really clear picture of this. At how nurses are really on the front line leading every day and healthcare and what the listeners may not know that nursing is actually the largest and the most trusted segment of the healthcare. That's nineteen years running in the gallup poll. So what we found in our research saw that despite all of the background and the experience that nurses bring to healthcare the resources in this innovative thinking how they put patient you know needs i. What we have found is that the impact of nurses is often underestimated and their expertise is underutilized and healthcare and the company. We think it's high time to change that because we really believe that to move healthcare forward and really make the transformative changes that we need to make. We know we need to make. We need nurses to play hero. Not so we're jj estate where we really are focused on elevating and advocating and empowering nurses to really drive that healthcare change that we know so desperately needed today. A couple of examples of what we're doing for example is really how we're working to support nurses and helping to improve and hone and strengthen their innovation muscles that we know are innately part of the nursing mindset. And that's where we do things like nurse hack for health hackathon and the quickfire challenge series as well as another podcast that we lead with the way quasi now but it's all about really helping to lead healthcare transformation and getting ready to do that. Well those are some some fantastic initiatives and it sounds like it's deeply embedded in the dna of the organization of j. and j. this belief that nurses are making a huge difference and we need to recognize and utilize their talents. More absolutely to your point and we did say that nursing is part of our dna because we really believe that to really drive the change. We need to drive. Nurses are gonna play a critical role. There's four million nurses in the us fall and about one ninth position and the nurses work in every corner of from unity so they have a huge impact in terms of how healthcare is delivered

You may remember the first cases of the Corona virus were reported from that city in December, 2019 Cluster emerged at a wet market where wild animals are sold, along with meat produce and other items. I spoke earlier with Dr Peter Ben embark. He's a scientist on the team. He was on a cell phone from Singapore. Where he was in quarantine before heading to Wuhan, and I asked him what his team will try to accomplish there. Gold with this mission is to help improve our understanding off the origin of the virus. We all know that various trump out from its natural Environment, impact population and then way had the detection of the first cases in Wuhan. But in between, we don't know We don't know what happened and that's what we want to try to. Get rid of your hell important Is it to be there in person Rather than doing this research remotely. It's important to be there because being there enable 55 concepts with Chinese researchers and counterparts. It also enable us to visit different sites. Visiting the market would give us a good idea off the dynamic within that market. We have done that for months. Now we have the actual meeting and Over the Internet, but it doesn't replace a faithful face interactions, smaller groups and retried in larger groups. So it's it's important to have that physical dynamic in a face to face environment. So I hear you referring to the wet market where some of the early cases first appeared. You say you'll be visiting there. I mean, this was a place where the whole world Had its eye on this market when the outbreak first started a year ago. When you get there, what will you do? What questions? Will you try to answer the market on how includes since last year? However, the records off what in a mountain that markets do still exist and have a lot of value in terms off. Understanding identifying animals that were brought to that market understanding what goods were brought into that market where they went out afterwards dispose the wholesale market. Mind do so. It was also serving the number for the markets in the city. And understanding what people who are working there. Where did they come from? Do they have any travel history too particular places that could give us some clues where the Some of them could have got the disease from outside to the market. So it's it has still a lot of value. Even a year after you know, there have been questions about whether China would even let you And your team into the country. The government has been floating the idea that the outbreak started in a different country. Do you think that Beijing can be trusted to give you access to what you need to do Your job? Yes. I mean, we are in on the way to the wall Hard now, So we have had many meetings with Chinese experts. Over the past few months, so that is the same interest to participate on do support this different studies. But of course and understandably day and others also interested to ensure that or the other news and all the study also conducted If the initial data On and results of studies indicate that there is a value in in looking elsewhere. We would, of course, also do that. But as always in these type of investigations, we start where the press cases where detective that was shot had December 2019. And we go from there. Every photo with the science studies tell us and that approaches also been agreed and supported by by China s O explain that a little bit more if he could, or are you going in assuming that the pandemic Started in Wuhan. Or how will you be able to even confirm that and frankly, why does it matter? When will the first cases they fix it with detective people will have in December 19. It doesn't mean that these were the first cases and remember that the papal defected where only severe cases we did not know that time. There was a lot off my cases a lot off security cases. And trying to identify these will be extremely interesting as well. They may be the one holding the clue to this. We have the first cases originated from on about the city. A case is that the door so it's also important to try to find all the places and other cases and the one that we're detectives in December. Because it's not people the first cases where it's a good one, But the whole thing started one easily have started somewhere else. Never province few 100 kilometers away or even further away. It's a starting point for the work, but it's not the starting point. Mrs. Every defendant, Peter Benton, Barak is the World Health Organization scientist joining us on a cell phone in Singapore. I'm part of a team headed to Wuhan, China to investigate the origins of the cove in 19 pandemic, Dr Ben and borrow. Thanks for making time for us today. We appreciate it. Thank you very much.

Economic Fallout From COVID-19 Continues To Hit Lower-Income Americans the Hardest

"Just a few types of locations. KQED science reporter Danielle Benton has more from a recent study out of Stanford. Location services are enabled on, say, your weather app. Your phone shares information about where you go on how long you're there. Whenever you leave the house and self interest are restaurants, jeans, grocery stores, places of worship. This data is anonymous ized and used by researchers like you're a less Kovic, Stanford computer scientist. He and others recently modeled how people's outings drove the course of the epidemic in the 10 biggest US metropolitan areas. When New York you had a huge spike and people state a common dividers die down. Philadelphia, San Francisco was up and then kind of flat. Researchers could also infer which types of locations were responsible for the most transmissions. Before there were widespread health safety precautions. There is a very small number off places about let's say 10%, where 85% of full infections happened. Indoors. Sit down. Restaurants, cafes and gyms are the top three. Crowded businesses also increased risk there, especially a problem in low income neighborhoods. And you found out that even a trip to a grocery store is twice as 3 FT. For an individual from a low income neighborhood versus individual from high income neighborhood. Residents of poor neighborhoods are also more likely to work, low wage service jobs that can't be done online. One of the big achievements of this study is to highlight the occupational vulnerability that People on the lowest ends of our occupational structure have had to face Merlin Chow Kwan Yin's studies public health at Columbia and was not involved in this work. He says. It highlights how important temporary income assistance could be for people who cannot afford to stay home. The study also shows that tapping a businesses peak capacity can slash transmission while cutting overall foot traffic by only a small amount. I'm Danielle Benton KQED news. Now we're going to

Long-term unemployment is looming

"Everybody, we are going to do a little labor market one, two, three by way of getting going to de. Item One this morning, the private payroll processor ADP gave us. It's guests is dominy jobs. The economy added last month four, hundred, twenty, eight, thousand, which is a nice hefty number but well, short of what everybody had been guessing, which was closer to a million speaking of million that gets us to labor market marker to the weekly report on new unemployment claims that will come tomorrow it'll be at or near a million people freshly out of work as it's been every week for five plus months. And speaking of months Friday morning, we'll bring the August jobs report. That's item three. We probably added jobs and the unemployment rate probably went down there end if the predictions. But there's a common thread that's running through the American labor market right now once you get past all the data and the indicators. As marketplace's Mitchell Hartman reports millions of Americans are facing the prospect of long-term unemployment. covid nineteen has not been good to the Life Events Business Rock Concerts and festivals pretty much shut down on a dime in early spring. That's when Jason George of Benton Harbor Michigan got laid off like many of my co workers in the industry we've been furlough for very long time initially, George was on temporary layoff from his job managing shows for a big event promoter. He got on unemployment his employer paying his benefits and he waited for a callback but summer still no concerts or call backs, and as of yesterday Georgia's employer has made his temporary layoff permanent benefits stopped at the end of the month it does feel different because there's not that safety-net. Could possibly go back sooner rather than later. So does feel official election we're kind of on our own to figure things out for ourselves. A lot more workers are likely to end up like Jason, George in coming months. It's very unlikely that if you've been furloughed for this length of time that you're going to go back, Daniel Sternberg is a data scientist at Gusto, an HR platform for small businesses he says. Furloughed back in March there was a thirty percent chance. You'd be called back by April because your company received funds or was able to reopen in some capacity. But then if we go out into future months smaller and smaller percentage is portraying tour and by July, a majority of furloughed workers were still waiting to be called back. And people laid off early in the pandemic are now approaching the Labor Department defines US long term unemployment more than twenty six weeks without a job jobless benefits start to run out people go through their savings to pay the bills and long-term unemployment decreases workers, chances of getting reemployed. Harvard economist Gabriel Chorro Reich and a colleague at the Fed have been projecting this out in our baseline stimulation in early twenty, twenty, one four and a half million people unemployed for more than twenty six weeks. More pessimistic scenario that number rises to one in five million that would still be fewer than the peak of six and a half million caused by the great recession. Recent polls have found that only a third of laid off workers think they'll be able to return to their jobs and a quarter of those who are still working worry. They'll lose their jobs as the pandemic drags on I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace.

Designing Your Work Life

"Let's give a little bit of context just to who you are and how you came to work together because you come from sort like different walks of life and somehow ended up originally teaching this course together and trying to figure out. Okay. What is this thing called design thinking and why is it being used in this one domain but we're not really applying this process this way of thinking to actually creating a better life. So how does the marriage I happen here? Under the origin and through to you in spring of two thousand. So. Going all the way back to when I was a Stanford Sophomore here seventy five thousand years ago when they retire on the plaza and struggling with the question, what do I do with my life? I found most of the grown-ups were supposed to be helpful not helpful at all and I found it really difficult to figure my own life and get into my career and apple in the early days and find myself on the first corporate culture. Committee was Steve In one, thousand, nine hundred because we're worried about what makes apple won't be apple anymore someday, and over the subsequent thirty years noticed everybody's got this question particularly workplace about I wanted to many for work on to work for you. Want, it to work for me. I want this to be generative used language with that's what they were looking for and with. So everybody's got this question fast forward many years. Later I'm having coffee with a guy named Randy over at Berkeley and he says Gosh have you should teach a class on this. So minor problems I'm not of the Faculty don't of a PhD don't have any contacts there I can solve everything but the lousy commute I said deal. So I taught a course experimentally one student said, are you teaching in the spring because my roommate wants to take I said sure I made a deal the universe of the kid show up I'll show up so fourteen semesters later. I'm teaching this class of Berkeley called finding your vocation and then how platinum David. Kelly get together an event. This thing called the D school decided to invent the school, which is where we are now and in order to focus on that David Kelly s this Guy Bill Burnett run the design program, and so in two thousand and seventy heard bill was coming here to run the design program said. Hey. Bill Gates. This kind of stuff he cares about students in Stanford's a lot less terrible from me. Let's have lunch and so we had lunch in two thousand and seven in the spring, which was the first of ten lunches over a year talking about this ambiguous idea of students find their way and about a minute and a half bill goes after great idea it's a huge problem. We should totally fix it design. Thinking is the way to solve this thing. So take all that stuff you're doing and flip it ended design give me a proposal will teach it. It will prototype at the summer we'll teach at this fall. Let's go I gotTA gotta run so it was a two minute meeting and I guess an appointment we gotta go. So what are the few times the bill talk faster than I do and so then we start that spring thinking of ideas and that fall teaching design students, which eventually teaching author students. But in particular design thing really did work why West go? Why did design work? Design is inherently human centered. The way we teach it and both of you and I have been working with students for longtime I started I finished my masters in eighty two I started teaching part time eighty, three I'm doing this for like thirty. Six years or something. And in office our after office hours after office. Our really smart capable students going I don't know what to do. I. Don't know how to launch. is working to suck as much as everybody tells me. How. Will I find something that I want or I like or might even be meaningful people keep asking me stupid questions like what's my passion and I don't know. So wrong broken. With me professor and it's nothing wrong with you. And then Dave, this experience over Berkeley and you know basically the class happened because he wanted a shorter commute and I wanted to. Free up my office our time but no, it's a real. It's a really big problem I. Mean you look around look at the data around the world sixty United States sixty, eight percent of the people say I'm just engaged from are highly disengaged from my job. I hate my job eighty-five percent worldwide people hate their jobs, right? So the students you know we started with students and then pretty soon after we pick kind of gone all over the university and by the way now we and we give the class to any university that wants it. We're not being taught at one hundred, fifteen, some universities and courtesy of that wonderful woman over there Gabrielle. Runs our studios. Everybody's got the same question like life be meaningful. Will this be interesting? What's work? How does work it into this big thing called life? And it's essentially a human problem because we're trying to. But designers do is make things that have happened in the world. You know, hey, this is an iphone never happened before how do you do it while you build lots and lots of prototypes and figure it out because you can't get any about the future. So when you want to do something in the future that's brand new. You need a process design thinking process it works over and over again if you apply to your life, well, what are you trying to do something new in the world your. Future. Right you've never you've never been there before you don't know what it's going to be like you probably are a little anxious or you're at a point of change we started working with thirty and forty something. I. Have This career thing but it's not exactly what I didn't really work out the way I thought or it's okay to go faster. So everybody's got this problem. How do I invent the future? Well, design thinking and design is a wave in Benton your future. I tell the students you I wanted to choice. Whether Students Twenty launching a thirty in board or fifty, and thinking about their own career you got only two choices the futures coming. You don't get to choose that. You, get the default future stuff happens in you react to it. or You design it, you put your intention in the world and you try to make the world do things that you're interested in and

"benton" Discussed on The Marketing Minute

"What's your most insightful story for marketers? So one of our early campaigns was Squatty Potty and of course now The Squatty Potty pooping unicorn is famous and everyone seen it and it's you know, kind of become a cultural phenomenon people dress up as the Unicorn for Halloween now, but it hasn't always been that way. In fact, it started out as a stupid idea. And and when we originally pitched that idea to Squatty Potty every single person in the organization, except for one thought it was a terrible idea and they said no so two of the three original Founders said know the investors said no, they even had an investor from Shark Tank who said know everyone thought it was a terrible idea, but Bobby the CEO he caught the vision of it. He saw it. He understood it off. Even though no one else around him. Did he gave us the green light and he pushed forward and said go for it at the time. We had no idea that he was going out on a limb and kind of putting his neck out there for this concept, but he gave us the green light and we went and built this campaign and I remember two days before it launched. I was talking to Bobby and he was he was like borderline autistic. He was pale in the face. Like he was white. He was so scared for what was about to come we were like two days from launch and he's sitting here thinking to himself. What have I done wrong? I am I have this company we've got you know, I think at the time they had, you know, four million dollars per year in sales or something like that. So it was already, you know, a successful company on you know, took a successful trajectory. So he's like, I'm about to put a freaking pooping unicorn on my brand as the spokesperson of my company like dead. Could be brand suicide. This could be the end of Squatty Potty. This could be the end of my tenure as CEO like that is the type of thing that he was facing in that moment. I remember he looked at my name is like Benton. This has to work like just has to work. I bet everything on this. I've even gone against my investors Council and best wishes to to do this home. And I remember that was the moment where I was like jeeze like you could have told us this in the beginning like the there's nothing we can really do about it. Now other than just go live with it and and hope for the best. What are the insights that you would be able to derive from that story? That's a fantastic story at the at the end of the day Bobby trusted his gut he caught the vision of it off and he knew that it was right and he knew that it was were there that it would work. But he had to take the risk. He had to roll the dice and go for it. He had to do something bold and he had to ignore all of the naysayers and the detractors to to move forward with it, you know, and of course now history shows like what a brilliant move it was, you know me made millions and millions of dollars from from that campaign and you know completely changed the trajectory of off of that brand but at the time that was a really scary bold move for him and and to this day I just take my hat off to Bobby for Having the courage to do something like that. Tremendous, is that a bit like trust your gut and make the leap. Yeah. I mean when it comes to trusting our gut we always have to you know, look at the risks. Look at the potential rewards look at any data that's available and we bring all of those different inputs together to generate a decision. But at the end of the day, yeah, we we do offer to take some risks in our decision-making and if we're not taking risks, then we're not ever setting ourselves up for the big rewards. Love it. Okay now can you say who you say you are and what you do? I'm Vincent crane CEO of harming Brothers.

"Rogue Secretary of State" Jocelyn Benson

"In two thousand eighteen Jocelyn Benson was elected as secretary of state in Michigan. It was part of a historic sweep. Where women were also elected to the governorship and to the Attorney General's office then the corona virus hit and Donald Trump went on the warpath personally attacking governor. Whitmer as she fought to get her citizens access to needed medical equipment. Well now he's also attack. Jocelyn calling her a rogue secretary of state for her plan to make sure all Michigan voters can apply to get an absentee ballot. This fall keeping them safe from the virus and ensuring everyone has a chance to vote. Jocelyn joined us to talk about the monumental importance of voting rights in the age of trump and the corona virus. This year we saw the. You're the woman. Two Point Gretchen. Whitmer Dana Nessel Jocelyn Benson Debbie Stamina and the list goes secretary of state of the Great State of Michigan. Four four my duties to invest in my abilities regard. Help me guys. The Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says. She sees nothing wrong with paper ballots. Secretary of state says the voter absentee ballot. Applications are great way for voters to vote in coming elections without risking their. How ahead of a planned visit to Michigan Tomorrow? President trump is targeting the leaders of the state on twitter president trump on Wednesday threatened to withhold federal funding to Michigan after the state announced that all of the states registered. Voters would receive applications for absentee ballots in the mail this year. Benton Secretary of State of Michigan on fighting every day to ensure that every voice is heard and every vote is counted. Sorry not sorry first of all. Thank you so much for doing this. I really really appreciate it. It's interesting because you have a job that I don't think a lot of people fully grasp what you do as secretary of State in Michigan. You're responsible for overseeing elections. But can you give my listeners? Really an overview of what that entails. And just broadly what? The job secretaryastate position in most states overseas democracy and that means everything from money in politics and regulating promoting disclosure of bat to the actual act of casting a ballot and making sure those votes are counted accurately protecting the security of the process. Anything that goes into ensuring that our democracy runs well flows lows through each state secretary of State and from your perspective. What is the biggest threat to our democracy? And you can do that. Broadly but you can also do that in Michigan. Well Yeah I always say that. A healthy democracy requires an engaged. An informed electorate and so in that way biggest threat is disengaged and misinformed electorate. I think you need both. You need everyone. Voting particular especially systems of underrepresented communities whose voices has historically been at the table and decisions. That are made them. But you also need to to be informed about all the aspects of an issue that they can make independent decisions about what's best for them. We're having our communities so to me really. You need people. Running the system secretaries of state and we need elected representatives who all kind of flow into that any neighbouring and encourage engagement and Commission. Of course the media as well but if you poke short on either of those two metrics those two pieces than democracy is threatened and. I think that's some of what we are seeing today where you have in some cases. Low turnout or disengagement or feeling of apathy or. My vote doesn't matter. My voice doesn't matter which is the exact opposite of which real and democracy or people not having access to accurate information about the decisions that are being made note decision makers that are making them can hold them accountable. We here and we've heard a lot about Michigan this cycle. So what makes it so important in this election besides the Electoral College? And how did it become a battleground? These chicken is a collection of voters that really reflects the entire country in many ways certainly in the Midwest and you've got a very diverse population we've got the largest concentrations for example Arab American voters in the country. We've got strong urban areas with unique stories and history like Detroit and Flint and high levels of communities of color growing Tino population and then a lot of the state is very rural. And so the racial demographics. The economic demographics -cation you have also right next to Detroit. One of the wealthiest per capita community in the country and they got in some ways integregation and many of the problems that afflict and having the country historically are reflected in Michigan. There's a great thing I saw when I personally hear when Michigan accuses the whole country gets a cold that in some ways is a bellwether state. Her a lot of different things is that because of the people because of history because of the community that can indicate how rest of the country like feeling going and attention on our state certainly over the past ten years when it comes to presidential elections. Really underscored that.

Juventus 2-0 Inter Milan - Hosts go top in stadium empty because of coronavirus

"Events is against into Milan. Went ahead today. In front of an empty stadium. It was surreal experience. But one. So you'd be comfortable in the by two goals to know I Ramsey scoring just after the break in the second half and a lovely go from powder Bala night at Uva to intern nail. That means now is you've ain't on nine points. Clear of INSA inferred they also leapfrog. Lancia back to top spot. This was weird when it boys just way to watch him. We understand why this has take place in this manner but for such a big game to have such a strange feeling as a spectator it was kind of difficult to renew is going to be odd. Given the conditions out of the game is going to be played under. I don't think we figured it'd be district and especially a game of this magnitude with these two clubs are going to be the two biggest clubs in Italian footba battling out for what may eventually be the title and it just. It felt empty literally lead the felt empty especially because into Milan. Who simply off-again listen. I thought the oddity of the game would plant and Tucson Skim the fact that dot its interim and they were simply over. They gave us nothing to give veggies nothing to be worried about nothing for anybody to cling a hot. There's going to be some kind of a title shelter. This event is by far the better. The two dominated an ungodly three points. And really not nothing really as the report and to give you an idea of how odd this was. It is so difficult to understand that every touch on the ball you could hear on the microphone. Every shot on target everything that was happening in the field. You can actually here which is not something that we're used to and whenever there was shot on goal you're expecting some sort of reaction from my crowd that was never there and it's almost as if oh that was a goal scoring opportunity but nobody cares. Nobody cares because nobody there. I would also say it's interesting for me that Saturday. He has a difficult time. Putting out. Deroga- you Wayne and renown out on the field at the same time. When he does seem to work well together sometimes eight Wayne dropping underneath which is not a natural for him but he does at times and then it just goes to the wide area and then he receives the bowl there. And there's rotation on Rondo has freedom to go wherever he wants to. And it seems to work well indications that he has used. I'm not sure as to why he won't commit himself to try to do this more consistent because a team that struggles to create opportunities today we saw from development. That's taking Gol- shows you. How special player. He can be hasn't always been this and doesn't always show this but it's not only the finish is the first that then could where he gets around actually young and then on the one to once it gets into a position where he plays in the ball once again. National Young has an opportunity to make a tackle and he cuts back to the outside and finishes the way that he did. You have to say to yourself. This guy can be useful to you. Not just twenty minutes at a time but ninety minutes at a time but it doesn't always happen for him. It doesn't always happen for Saturday. Let's bring democracy into the conversation. Got Into Milan. Be So disappointed that they didn't really put up a fight today. Yeah undeniably they will be and you know you talk about the put up a fight you can look at it on a binary way what's going to where either they do. What what he says he wants to do. When the aggressive and pressing midfield work hard? They didn't do that or the other thing you could do is. Hey how about you put the guys out there who can actually pass and create I e Christian Erickson and again we see this guy. Come off the bench. And he doesn't give the impression that he is a Colin type player which then begs the question of. Why did you spend all this money on him? He's supposed to give you something different. He could have done something. Possibly if you've figured out a way to to go and play him but I also think we have to give credit to you both games against enter this season. They played really really well have not played well for much of this season but they really raise their game when it mattered was exceptional on. Lukaku and Saturday to give him some credit. I know that alley would love it. If you've got more deba- by I thought dropping Jansher Benton core was was a big call and and one that really paid off as well and we saw what this you've in midfield theoretically could be and hasn't been for much of the season I mean surround. The title race gone. Well I mean they have a game to make up then becomes six points and then but they still have to go win it. I wouldn't write them off completely at this stage but there's no question that their chances of a trunk down

"Welcome back to damn good brands today. We have a little bit of a change of pace. I'm speaking of Benton Crane. Benton is the CEO of Harmon Brothers Company famous for their Super Viral POOPING UNICORN. Squatty potty. Add the perhaps equally famous and equally scatalogical who Puri commercials harmon brothers are a fantastic and fascinating company and one that. I admire very much. There's a tremendously admirable. Level of quality to all of their and their videos are downright hysterical. They're also incredibly well. Crafted and in many cases have reached pop culture status such as the case of the pooping. In this conversation. We die deep into the creative processes and strategies behind the creative comedic genius of Harmon brothers. All of this and so much more on today's episode of Damn could brands now without further. Ado here's Benton Crane. Ceo harmon brothers. I think your company culture and I did give this a read. So there's a lotta great gold in In from poop to gold which I definitely recommend the listeners check out but I was particularly fascinated. By how you guys are able to maintain your culture because such a creative intelligently creative culture but you also give people great amounts of flexibility in a lot of your kind of cultural values based on trusting adults to just get the job done so to speak but It sounds like you when you approach the company. You're able to bring a sense of structure. To all of that wonderfully chaotic creativity that flows so would love to just get your overall approach to balancing such strong and fun and freewheeling creativity but also adding a sense of structure to it. What are some of the keys to to doing that? Yeah yeah that's a really great question so like you mentioned. My background is in data analytics. Nice started my career out as a statistician and I worked at the Census Bureau at Washington. Dc in later. I spent a couple of years in the Intel community kind of jumping from Intel Agency to Intel Agency out there in Washington DC. And so. When I joined up with the Brothers Neil Jeff Daniel. They had they were coming off of a big success at were a brush where they kind of pioneered in Youtube Marketing essentially and and when we joined up it was for the pooper campaign and so I brought this data analytics background. They brought this. You know world class creative background and and when we married those two together we kind of created I like to call it this kind of virtuous cycle where the data what we're learning from the data is feeding the creative process and then what we're seeing in. The creative process is informing what we test next in on on the data side and it becomes this really beautiful cycle where we keep learning and applying learning and applying over and over again and so as people look at our track record and and they see a back in the early days squatty potty purple managers chat books and so forth men. They see us. Continue those types of successes. Leumi is our our most recent one there last year when we joined forces with them they were at about one point. Five million dollars revenue per year this year. They'll do probably somewhere in the neighborhood of thirty five million they're still growing and so we've just been able to kind of repeat these successes over and over again and and sometimes people wonder like do they just have like this golden touch in terms of creativity but when you actually pill back the curtains and see what's happening behind the scenes it's it's a series of dozens and dozens or hundreds and hundreds of tests. You know. Learn Rinse repeat over and over again and so it allows us to just keep learning and learning learning testing testing. And that's how we've been able to kind of stay out in front and consistently put out You know super high quality content that that drives performance for our clients and I feel like a lot of creative companies are trying to arrive at that balance between arts and sciences. They want to do great work but they do want to somehow integrate the data and integrating data analytics into something. That's so creatively driven. Seems paradoxical but it really isn't. Could you talk about the approach today to like what are some of the metrics that matter when you are watching a creative campaign like what are you is? Demographic data is at pop culture data. What what's trending? At the time I feel like a lot of creative agencies get lost in Indata and somehow are the victim of analysis paralysis. But how are you guys able to pick the metrics that matter? That's a that's a really great question so it kind of it kind of depends on what stage of the process. You're at so for instance When we are in the very early stages where we're just coming up with concepts and writing scripts we will we will do. I guess the hardcore data people would not consider this data analysis right there. The my statistician friends would all would cringe it this but it actually really really works. It's super effective. All you have to do is take your script out and read it to ten. Different people film their faces as you're reading it to them and then go back and make what we call last. And that's where the that's where you you've identified you've broken your script up into little sections and and then you're scoring each section based on the reaction that your listeners are having and so you know if somebody is is looking at their watch then it's probably GonNa score a zero if someone is actively engaged at that point then it'll be a one and then if they're smiling it's a two and if they're laughing it's it's a three and so we create this last graph that allows us to It allows us to kind of pick apart the script bit by bit and identify. Okay here are the areas that are working. You're here are the areas that might be problematic and then we can dive in and we can workshop those problematic areas until we feel like they're performing at a higher level and so that that starts long before you filmed anything long before you cast any actors long before you've done any costumes or sets or or anything like that And then you can continue similar tests like that alter the process. You can test You know before you go live you can test the titles of your videos even test thumbnail images for for your videos contest. Several different intros you can test calls to action. There's all of these different components of the video that if instead of just taking your guests going market if you take the time to to actually test iterating through those then you kind of get this compounding effect where if you get through your titled Testing you get you know. Let's call it thirty percent better. Click through rates and then through your call to Action. Testing you another twenty percents Better quick charade then all of a sudden it's your compounding and through all the compounding you end up with a campaign that performs exponentially better than if you had just taking your best guess at it right right. I love the idea of laugh graph. It's kind of like how can stand up Comedians test. Their jokes on the road for weeks develop and interact with and then finally put a special together. That's really exactly yeah. We we found that it's much much easier to teach a comedian how to sell than it is to teach a marketer to be funny and and so we We use a lot of comedians in our in our creative process. And so of course like you mentioned that is the process for them. It's it's right not test tweet chest tweet tests. And they don't think of themselves as data people but they're essentially following the exact same process so we just apply that saint process in every part of the creative process that we can figure out a way to do it. Yeah Yeah because a lot of people have this this false notion of something like let's for instance. It's something creative or like a standup special. They think it just kind of arrives out of thin air people just right in one shot then realized that a special. That's laugh after laugh at laugh is comes from a lot of kind of rinsing and repeating and data and stand up comedians. Have to take on the like. Every joke has to be audience tested. It's pretty obvious that that's exactly right. It's always kind of shocking to people when they hear that you know a two to four minute ad that we put out usually take a Months from start to finish to to produce that end and at first blush. It's like six months like I could turn that thing out in in a month or or whatever what they don't see that behind the scenes there is so much testing in iteration and Rinse Repeat Rinse repeat and the the amount of work just like you mentioned with a stand up comedian. You know when you see Jim. Gaffney stand up there and deliver his forty five minutes of Polish comedy that has the whole audience rolling. That's ignoring the thousands and thousands of hours that he spent a open mics in clubs. You know a work shopping. Those jokes to find out what works? And what doesn't right right. Yeah Yeah. It's Kinda unsung hero. Ick element of vet entire process. So one thing that seems to be synonymous with a lot of your work like namely Poo Pourri and squatty potty. Both having POOP IN COMMON. Is they both really really? Do Push the envelope in terms of in terms of humor and they're so just outrageously disruptive and I remember reading the book that there is an element of fear when you're first launching like Oh is this. Is this going to work when you're doing something like that? There's you kinda seemingly walking a tightrope in terms of if it works. It's GonNa work unbelievably well but if it doesn't work it can go so hard so left so fast Did you talk about how you're able to? Kind of mitigate the risk when you're taking those larger creative risks and and the implications of doing that with a client and kind of guiding them through it and the trust that you have to build in order to make that happen yet. It's all that testing that we just talked about. A lot of that really does help us. Mitigate because part of the creative process is You know we always push until it breaks and and what we mean by that is we do cross that line like we we we get crazy. We get wild. We crossed the line. We take it too far and only by doing so. Are we able to identify where the line is because we we can push it and then go test push it and then go tests and we keep finding okay where we take another step too far? Where where have we you know where? Where does it break essentially and in those areas than we pull it back and so it it helps us? It puts us in a position to where we can take creative risks but most of the creative risks yet identified early in the testing process..

She was a licensed physician. Who wanted to join the Union forces and work the frontlines as a doctor but she was a woman and so it was turned down determine?

Suffrage Bureau in Washington and solicited funds to endow share for Female Mel Professor at Howard University Medical School. She attempted to register to vote in eighteen seventy one but was turned away initial stance to the movement following. Her lead was to claim that women already had the right to vote and congress needed only to enact enabling legislation upgrade number fruitless years advocating this position the movement promoted the adoption of a constitutional amendment in one thousand nine seven Walker published crowning constitutional argument argument in which she argued that some states as well as a federal constitution had already granted women the right to vote. She testified on on Women's suffrage before committees of the US House of Representatives in nineteen twelve nineteen fourteen. Ironically her death in nineteen nineteen came one year before the passage of the nineteenth amendment to the United States Constitution which granted women the right to vote next on. Our Echo is another a woman mentioned the name Freon and you might say oh. Yeah John C.. freemont explorer. Yeah I know him and you'd be right in eighteen. Fifty fifty six fremont anti-slavery position was instrumental in his being chosen as the first ever Republican candidate for president but John Fremont it didn't really discover anything that hasn't been discovered already but he had a knack for publicity header his wife. Jessie she played an extremely streamline active role in campaigning. Rallying support for husband one particular campaign slogan read Fremont and Jesse to her father other however a life long Democrat refused to endorse her husband's bid for the presidency remember he was running as Republicans she was considered the first lady in the land title. Her admirers continued to use throughout her life. One of the most impressive feats of her political career came shortly after Fremont lost his position during the civil war for issuing his own edict of emancipation similarly free all the slaves and Missouri which antedated gated. Lincoln's own emancipation. Proclamation Jesse actually traveled to Washington and pleaded with Lincoln on behalf of her husband but to no avail after the war they moved to New York and California in the paddock financial panic of eighteen. Seventy three John C.. Freemont who had invested a heavily in railroad stock lost. Everything declared bankruptcy. Undaunted by their financial situation Jesse began writing books to help support the family. I'm late namely a year.

The Happy Foot/Sad Foot Sign of Los Angeles

"On monocle. Twenty four brought to you by the team behind the urban est the show. What about the cities we live in this week? MANACLES COLLARTOO Rabelo. Takes us to the neighborhood of Silverlake in Los Angeles to show story of an unassuming thanks city icon a rotating sign outside foot clinic and trade. Let's listen in. There are many things that define the city of Los Angeles Palm Trees. The Hollywood sign film film studios scattered around and Winding Hills. That surround the city. One thing that I discovered upon moving there was that for residence of the east side that it is around as Silverlake and echo park areas. There's another item to be added to that list. The humble happy foot slash sad foot sign at first glance it might seem odd that the billboard of a podiatrist has become the unsung hero of a neighborhood. Mud there's more to the story than this sitting in the intersection between Sunset Boulevard and Benton way this blue sign advertises the foot clinic back in an unassuming strip mall one of the money that you can find in this car. Centric city with a Navy blue background to cartoons grace as the sign on one side a happy and healthy foot and on the other hand bandaged up sat foot holding on for dear life to a pair of of crutches every day and night assign slowly rotates on US access and here it's where the mystique surrounding its it's existence begins to make sense. You see this is one of the busiest intersections in the city and as scores drive by on their way to work important meetings a date or to simply hang out with friends. The sign has kind of become a sort of fortune teller for residence. If when when you drive by you see too happy foot that could be taken as a sign that you'll have a good day or be successful at a particular event or a goal that you have coming up or maybe you should say yes to something on the other hand if you stumble upon the sad fort while that's bad news for you from the Urban Tarot card reader. Perhaps you want go to that gym class after all or want. Make that phone call or worse you have have to brace for. What's not going to be a good day at all of course as with any superstition? This is not inaccurate. Fortune fortune-telling instrument. There's something quite mystical about this. Humble sign being embraced and cherished by Angelenos while having such an impact Own Their state of mind and decision making capabilities but this is not just an urban tale. The happy I sat foot sign has been immortalized. Allies in popular culture to it is featured in Jonathan Lethem's novel you don't love me yet. On David Foster Wallace's the Pale king in music deals have track titled Sad Foot Sign Serve. ooh And the musician back has spoken about it. In an interview to despite its cult following last year residents woke woke up to worrying news the foot clinic was moving premises and the sign was going to be taken down and destroyed a pop. Up Store was launch to help save an restored. The happy for sat foot blue sign. Here you could buy pins t shirts hats and more featuring the iconic collaborations of the two feet in September when it got taken down the team behind the store why kit trading post decided to take the signed signed to their store in east Hollywood while the clinic the side Swat to do it. It's not the same as driving by it every day but if it's any consolation consolation it means that the sign still belongs to Angelinos and hopefully we'll be back to. Its rotating position in an unassuming intersection soon. For now I'll take solace in the fact that whenever I
