"It's almost as if we're rooting for the freaking terrorists, unbelievable. Let me get your take real quick before we close out. Nation building. A lot of people nation building quote unquote work, give us, just give us your takes on that. What should be the military focus when we go in to deal with terrorists or people that threaten the United States of America? Do we have any hope of nation building and the Middle East in places? Places like we are one world. You know, if you go up and outer space and look down, you know, there's no lines dividing countries and states and cities. It's one world. So we do all need to work together. Nation building does need to happen, but it needs to happen from the perspective that, hey, we're all in this together, not because of political ideologies. And that's what usually push its nation building. So when it comes to certain countries, like Afghanistan, for instance, or Libya, if we're going to nation build, then we have to be serious, we have to commit to those nations and support them and see it all the way through. We can't get what we want and then abandon them. And that's what we've done for years. What about, what about those that would say, well, do we have interest in places like this overseas? What will be your response to that? I worry that some of our interests end up being corruption. We hold on to and we ally with these leaders who basically develop Trump governments, corrupt systems, they don't care take care of their people. And we stay allied with them. We enable them. I mean, I think Hamid Karzai in Afghanistan is a really great example. Obviously, is we're going to show people in our book the Libyan governments, another really great example. So maybe we start idealistic, but then I do think it becomes a money resources grab and I don't actually think we're good at nation building because I do think we have enough corruption in our own government that we just are not going to be able to put the right ideals into a different society. I don't think it's the right fit for us. Basically, we need, if we go anywhere overseas, we need a clear and defined mission and it sounds like we need to get in and get out. We need to recognize who our enemies are, our allies are respect our respect our allies definitely don't abandon our freaking allies. But also just go there to take care of business because it does seem to me that and I wasn't always of this opinion, but politicians, it becomes a political game. Sadly, it becomes a political, it becomes a political gang to too many politicians and you're right on both sides. I never thought I'd be saying this, but it seems pretty clear to me at this point. So listen, guys, I honestly, I can't wait to read the book. I can't wait to get more clarity. And I appreciate you guys staying on top of it. I definitely appreciate your service and I appreciate you staying on top of this. Sarah, I appreciate you being willing to stay on top of this and I know you put yourself in harm's way for the United States of America as well and I'm very appreciative of that. I want to make that emphatically clear and again, make sure you go guys go out and get the book when it does come out and we will have you guys back if you don't mind, but Benghazi know thy enemy look for that book. I mean, we have just celebrated isn't the right word, but we've just, I mean, it's been ten years. And I still feel like we don't have the answers that the American public deserves. And it sounds like this book is going to be able to do that. So Sarah Adams and Dave Boone Benton, I appreciate you guys coming on. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thanks for having us.

"I want to ask you this, but if you don't mind, can you kind of walk us through what happened on with the whole Benghazi attack? How you were informed of it, your response to it? Can you kind of walk us through that quickly here? A very briefly. It's been covered a lot. In the movies in the books and then the other guys have talked about it a lot. Basically, I was on duty that night got to call over the radio. We're informed of what was going on. We responded. Once we responded, we dealt with some situations over at the consulate. After that was over, we went back to the annex. Once we were at the annex, we were attacked several more times. We dealt with those situations that brought us to morning, morning time. We ended up at the airport. Once we were at the airport, we waited for a little while. We made sure all the other Americans were gone. And then we ended up being extracted on a Libyan aircraft later on. So that's it in a nutshell. Now, I know you wanted more detail and there's a lot in between that. But it's been covered a lot. Yeah, and if you want anything specific in the middle, just ask us. No, I mean, that's absolutely fine. And I'll be honest with you, Boone. I almost expected you to answer. And in the way in the way that you did and listen, I know, as I'm speaking to you, I just want you to understand that I respect you highly and I do consider you a hero. I know I'm sure in your eyes you were doing your job. But I mean, honestly, just hearing you as fascinating, you know, it's always been, it's already been covered. It's been covered a lot. I appreciate your humility on the situation, but honestly, I just think you guys were just complete and utter heroes. It's what it's kind of what we hope for with people like you and for sure, you're an asset to the United States and definitely didn't let us down. So I just want to make that emphatically clear. I appreciate your humility on the issue. But I just want to, I just want to say that say that out out loud, are there some things in the book that you guys Sarah or Boone that you're eager for the listening audience to find out about? Some things perhaps that were conspiracy theory that you guys were you guys set the record straight. Some information that you believe is instrumental, that perhaps some things that you picked up on in the select committee, Sarah, I know there's obviously things that you won't be able to speak on, but are there some things some nuggets that you guys are like, hey, people really need to know about this. And again, I'm speaking speaking today, Benton, and I'm also speaking to Sarah Adams and Sarah was on the select committee for Benghazi also. Are you still a CIA targeter? No, I'm not. I work for the Department of Defense now, which is funny because they're the ones that haven't approved my book yet, so. There's a John satisfaction problem going on right now. Anyway, they want to avoid printing that book. Or suspect before the midterm elections there. So just to be clear, our investigation is completely independent. So everything that we've uncovered is separate from anything we did with any agency or it's completely separate from her time with the select committee..

"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.

"Our guest today was raised in Maryland with a generation steep roots in southern Virginia and the Appalachian frontier. Her historical novels transport readers to the 18th century where she expertly brings to life the colonial and early federal periods of American history. Her books have received the Christian award and the NCB award and have been honored as finalists for the ECPA book of the year. She is most at home surrounded by mountains currently those of the Pacific Northwest where when she isn't riding. She's likely to be found in wild places behind a camera. Laurie Benton, welcome to historical bookworm show. Thanks, Kylie and Darcy. So glad to have you in wild places behind a camera and your Instagram reflects this. You share breathtaking photos. Would you say that your love of photography in nature influences your writing? Well, first off, thanks for the kind words about my photos. It's a fun hobby and no doubt it does, especially my love for nature in general, because that goes back to childhood and has been also linked to my writing from the start, which also goes back to childhood. But writing was a side thing back then and my main passion was art. And I was drawing animals also childhood into high school and even a couple of years of art college. And after that, I painted professionally for a few years still focused on wildlife and landscape. Before the writing bug bit again, and I made the switch to writing full-time, but even then the settings I gravitated toward were wildish, the 18th century frontier, for instance, wow, that's really cool. Writing is art too, but it's a totally different medium than creating a visual picture. It is. And I think up until high school, I could have gone either way focusing on writing or art, but I landed in high school and got the most awesome art teacher in the world. And that's just she helped funnel that passion and that's how I ended up in art college. That's actually cool how you brought a crossroads and someone came in and directed you. Yeah, teachers. So would you say that your experience in art and in drawing and painting, does that come into play like creating word pictures in your writing? I guess it could because I'm very visually focused. In my early drafts, especially of my early attempts at writing, boy did I layer on the description. I'm just such a visual person. I'm still drawing maps of my settings in my current books. I'll draw maps of farms in maps of plantations. So I'm very much focused on how things look in the settings and wanting to get that across..

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.

Oh three they founded religious society called the israelite house of david which aimed to reunite the twelve tribes of israel in hopes of preparing themselves to receive jesus christ upon his return to earth in the new millennium very long sentence. Yes so they're they've created the kalt role show credits. That's what we did. Yeah thanks for stopping by. Were you like in a movie when they say the name of the movie. 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.

"Because i'm always like this is really like the ice on cake so once we figure out our inch in our interest right. We know who want to speak to we know want to speak about. Will we have the ability to do is to look and see what is industry talking them. That's the reason that we even come up with that section. So in go ara national websites for conferences and see what are they talking about in the breakout rooms. What are they talking about during those keynote presentations right. What are the top people in that industry aligned with. What problems are they solving. And that's usually how out base my first offers right. I really want to base it off. The what am i interested in. And also what is the industry talking about but once we put those offers out there and we get on those console calls to have those conversations or you can call them discovery cause some students gavin discovery. 'cause that's when we really can figure out the problems that we're solving right because people come to you because you put offer out there but when you get on the call on you realize hey actually they want me to come in and do a writing workshop on development but really when i need to do is come in and actually do a whole hilling retreat with these people based off of the problems if they told me on the call so hover thing that i want folks to know. We don't create talks without being paid right. This is the same thing as if you're in the industry that listen our in ours. Coaching we don't create offers right without validating. So you might go into a call with people that want you to come and speak and you might not already created that presentation and that's great as long as you have the expertise you're in you're able to make it happen. Which are doing is really assessing what they need. So that you can build the product or the talk or the training or the facilitation to be able to fix it on the other in god. That's a huge huge. You just mentioned there is like we don't make the talk before we get paid so it's like coming up with all this work in putting yourself through a ton of hours of writing and practicing before getting paid That for me. I didn't really think i thought you had. I actually thought you had some of the. You had the talks redone. And then you kinda just fitted the talk to the person or the or the the event So it's a completely new perspective on that. I want to dive in all with like. I'm sure you see a lot of people who've come into your program and said like david maybe tried speaking before they've tried to get speaking gives. They've made mistakes. What are some of the biggest issues are common mistake. You've seen people make who are Flying solo or just kind of like trying to get speaking gigs on their own. Yeah i think some of the biggest mistakes is the assumption that you have to have everything together before you get started so a lot of people tell me. I don't have a website yet. I don't have a media package yet. And i'm like do you have linked then. Do you have a facebook page. You have some representation of what you do professionally or what you want to show as a speaker right. You don't need to have a website with your name first. Name dot.

"More how you say them and words coming from so That's a huge piece. I can see how that could be along along part in itself And having coach actually facilitate that confidence piece huge. Because it doesn't come very easy if you're trying to do it on your own as well as if you mean like we all have the mental self that self talk in the back of us telling us like. You can't do this where you do this. Are you qualified etc etc. Offer ends up holding people back there so many people that i've worked with so many of my students who wanted to speak for years right axum. How long have you been one. Communicate this message to the world and they'll say ten years five years and i'm like well why haven't you done it and one of the main things is like i'm afraid i don't. I don't know how to start. I'm scared right so we can build that confidence. Not only does it get us to the next level of actually speaking. I always tell people the best marketing that you can ever have as speaker is a talk. You can have an amazing web site. You have a great press kit. But if you're talk is not with confidence in a daily lead with that you're not going to get called back and you're not gonna wanna do it again right. Yeah exactly that's that he would like podcast guesting like for example at a bad guy not a good call with someone earlier today but the internet was kinda crappy and i'm like that's kind of affected my confidence because now it's like man like that was great but the internet issues all this to get called back so i'm gonna want me back on the show so that kind of the same thing that you're talking about here inside of speaking and having a really really good talk so i'm curious for you. Do we start next. Like we'll get that confidence piece. Is it next out figuring out the industry that we're gonna it's gonna kind of goals or is it developing signature signature talk or is it kind of developing both those things in unison as we're going through the process what does that look like. Definitely so i would say in order we would do right. We will figure out our confidence bigger out our money right. What are we trying to bring in. Then we think about industry interest together right. Like what interests do i have. And what industry does that align with. Where i can figure out problem to offer them because just like any other business as seekers were problems offers right so people come to me as a hey of. I've been in business for ten years and i really wanna talk to young business owners about poor shift not burning out and i'm like ooh that's a great topic. Well how much do you want to get paid..
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

"And i really good illustration of that has d. Remember back in the days before net. Netflix and amazon when we used to consume tv that was broadcast over the air. We all dealt with commercial breaks as a way of life the they were just there and we were a captive audience and therefore the advertisers could force feed us. Whatever crap they wanted to and and we were just kinda stuck and that's why the ads were so often terrible they just was just such garbage such a waste of time but when jeff harmon the brothers were working on that were brush. That i mentioned early on it was interesting. They made it. They came up with an ad that was two and a half minutes long which is a really on ball linked for an ad like in the world of advertising you usually have impo marshalls which are like thirty minutes. Sometimes you can have a short infomercial. Fifteen or twenty minutes but their long format right or you have short format. Ads usually fifteen thirty or sixty second ads. And so this two and a half minute was just a total odd duck. This doesn't fit in in anything and so everyone was telling them. This is never gonna work. Gotta make a thirty second ad. And jeff's like i need two and a half minutes to properly educate and entertain and sell in on what this what this product does and it matters to you why you should care. I need the two and a half minutes and so he actually reached out to youtube which remember was just recently purchased by by google so it was still very fledgling platform and they were running at very much like a startup where they were totally open to experimenting and trying new ideas and seeing what sticks seeing what doesn't in jeff went to them and said guys. Can you make me skip so that people who want to watch this can and people who don't want to watch it can just skip it because that's a really interesting idea. Let's get a truck at the time.

World Health Organization team arrives in Wuhan to investigate COVID-19's origins
"Today, China announced its first covert 19 death in eight months. That news comes the same day, a team from the World Health Organization arrived in Wuhan to investigate the origins of the pandemic. 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

"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.

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
