Fresh update on "blackburn" discussed on News and Information with Dave Williams and Amy Chodroff
"Yoko Ono played Beethoven's Sonata backward. John Lennon had a song. Quite a story coming up from Ed Wallace for the moment in rock and roll history. That's 7 55 Well, You say that? Well, I read in the New York Times yesterday that Kamala Harris is Kamala Harris is considered to be ah, Moderate. They labeled her in the headline is a pragmatic magmatic Moderate. Yes, whatever that means. Well, I know what I know it pragmatic means. I thought I know what moderate means, but apparently not. She has been scored the most liberal US senator last year, according to Gove track Now what they do just for context here they take all of your Ifyou're senator. Any bill that you've signed or co signed on. And the pattern of bills. You've basically sponsored anything. You put your name to write. They use this for their rankings. There are a number of organizations do that kind of thing. And they typically are. Ah, pretty pretty. Ah, unbiased because they are simply, you know, grading the the work that people are doing in the Congress. Right. She was ranked the most liberal compared to all senators, including Bernie Sanders. I don't know how you get more liberty Elizabeth Warren, Huh? Ah! Kirsten Gillibrand, Jeff Merkley. These people are all in the top five. But they said that Kamala Harris is number one. Meanwhile, the same tracker, also a ranked the most conservative members of Congress. They're the Senate Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, followed by Joni Ernst of Iowa, Mike Brown of Indiana and Ted Cruz from Texas. I love the reaction from Republicans in Congress when they saw the New York Times headline of Oh, she's a pragmatic, moderate My favorite being Dan Crenshaw. Congressman from Texas who wears the eye patch, he said, quote. If you think Kamala Harris is a pragmatic moderate, then I've got some beachfront property in Nebraska. I'd like to sell you right. Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas said Reminder that during the Democratic primaries this pragmatic, moderate endorsed number one de criminalizing illegal border crossings Number two taxpayer funded health care for illegal immigrants. Number three taxpayer funded abortion number four Medicare for all Right. Well, I'm sorry. That was that was Logan Dobson, who is a Republican pollster Tom Cotton said pragmatic moderate Kamala Harris supports Medicare for all, and she laughed at the idea of the constitution would prevent her from confiscating guns. Well, and that's why you know, jizz labeled as one of the most liberal senators, and she's actually flip flopped a lot and you and I have said this before. It's kind of unfair, sometimes toa dog on politicians for changing their minds. Everyone is going to change their mind. I've changed my mind about covert a little bit. In the last few months, we've got more information. The problem is Kamala Harris has changed her mind dramatically on major issues in like less than a year, like she's gone back and whatever politically expedient right Originally, she was all in on Medicare. For all, she's a co sponsor in birdie. Sanders bill, but eventually she released her own plan that left room for private insurers. And then that got criticism as district attorney for the city of San Francisco. She opposed the ballot proposition to legalize marijuana in California, but then turned around and Supported that legislation a few years later. But then again, there was a difference of a few years involved, right and things and things change. Things do change, so I think you got to be fair about this, as you said. Anyway, we could. We could point out the same with President.

N. dot gov forward slash team at T. E. M. A. I. individuals can go there and get information on how they access help but the governor in Tennessee is doing a good job we'll have the president on the ground tomorrow people are looking forward to having him there so that he can see firsthand so we're talking to sue us senator Marsha Blackburn and senator we saw also that your that the Tennessee governor had held a news conference this morning saying that Tennessee has the first confirmation of cold hit nineteen as well also from middle Tennessee talk about adding insult to injury as you guys are coping with the tornado damage you're also dealing with this covert nineteen outbreak that is correct in the state health department I had the confirmation on this case yesterday it is a forty four year old male he lives in Williamson County which is right outside of Nashville that Sir Brentwood Franklin area I he had attended an international conference which was held in the United States after he returned home he did not feel well so eventually as his system and his symptoms worsened he decided to go to take medical care and that is when he was tested and he is quarantined at home with his family now we we have seen some of the measures in places like China some of the European measures when it comes to this slowing the spread of cove it nineteen and and some other areas are taking pretty significant measures that we have not yet taken here in the United States one of which being the the UK government announcing that they're going to pay for people's sick leave from day one if they self quarantine image can you imagine every single taxpayer being on the hook for everybody's staying home from work in a two week or more self quarantine one one of the things I think said and we're receiving regular updates Dr sale team is doing a tremendous job N. ambassador Burke of leading the effort working with the vice president who is handling this they are very thoughtful they are getting information to us they are transferring information to your state and local health authorities and I certainly believe that the reason you have seen a slower spread here in the U. S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things
How Can I Help? Loving the Friend Who Has a Child With Special Needs
"Back to another episode of Risen Motherhood Hud I'm Laura Whistler and I actually have three guests joining me today you guys. This is going to be such an awesome show. It's one that I've looked forward to for a very long time today. I have with me of course. My sister-in-law Emily and then I also have Abigail Dodds and Katie Blackburn. These women are just amazing women that have become friends to me in real life and it's just a pleasure to be able to have them on the show today so I'm going to actually have them start by going around introducing themselves so you can hopefully fully start to learn their voice a little bit and then also have them let you know how many kids they have in total as you guys know. Today is a special show so I will also have up them. Speak about any of their kids that do have special needs and how old child is and kind of just some of the things that they're dealing with so emily. Why don't you give start? Okay yes Jensen I feel like. I don't have to totally. Yeah I have five children ages. Seven twins ends at our five Four year old and a two year old and it is my four year old son who has special needs and he has a rare genetic mutation. Dan That's extremely small and has only been known about for a few years and so there's not a lot of helpfulness and sharing the exact specific civic diagnosis but basically as a four year old he has you know Af oh braces on his ankles that help give stability to walk. He's is a transport. Wheelchair wheelchair does not walk independently. Much away from a walker at all and then right now. He's just pretty much non verbal so we do a lot of texts communications nations for those of you who are listening. It's like robbing pictures. Some signs but Yeah overall is pretty pretty pretty healthy but definitely a a lot of communication and physical challenges. Abigail yeah I'm Abigail duds Married to Tom and we also have five kids. Our oldest is is fifteen and she just got her learner's permit for driving. So that's exciting. Then it goes. Yeah yeah that's a whole different. Yeah yeah show that you could do some day but it goes down to. We have a son who's thirteen and then a daughter who's eleven and another daughter who's nine and then our youngest son is the one with special needs. He's five he'll be six probably when this show releases and His special needs in some ways similar in terms of the diagnosis. Just that we don't really have a real definitive one and whatever it is is not one that has been Tracked before what it looks like for his day to day. Life has just means kind of global developmental delay slower to walk slower slower to talk but he does do both of those things a lot and he. He's got a feeding tube so some of the parts of of his brain that are small. Just make things like swallowing and sleeping difficult. So yeah and seizures seizure disorder. So that's another big part of his of his special needs Katie. Yeah I'm Katie Blackburn and I also have five kids I don't think we did is but My oldest is six and a half and then I have a five year old and he was diagnosed with autism. His Um to when Just after his second birthday and then we have a three and a half year old and we just welcomed our forth biological Kohl titled Less than two weeks ago. So he's just downstairs sleeping right now and then we have a foster baby right now. Who is is nine months old? And so that kind of that that rounds out our crew but Our five year old image and he has autism and he is just the joy of our lives but his his challenges are primarily in Social interactions and then in communication. He's not nonverbal. But I'm pretty limited so emily we use lots of PECs to know. Just what but those are and they've been amazing. They're lifesavers actually for a child that struggled with communication and he's getting better he's learning lots more words and lots more sentences We do a lot of the same things in our house. A lot of repeating A lot of scripting lot of eating the same aim kind of five or ten foods so our our home life definitely has a a repetitiveness to it to just kind of help him feel comfortable and and like A. He has a somewhat predictable. Life but he's he's such a joy. He loves the school bus. He loves his friends at school and he loves his siblings so we learn a lot from him and yeah. I'm excited to be here to talk to you guys about this really really great topic today. Awesome well thank you guys offer sharing and for anyone. Who is new here kind of like what Emily said? I feel like I shouldn't have necessarily introduce myself. But just if you're new and haven't heard motherhood podcast before I'm I'm Laura and I have three kids so I'm the one out I need to get on that. I have a six year old four year old and a two year old so my two year old is the one who has has special needs and she has also something that doctors have never seen before. She's we've been told she's kind of the only one in the world who has what she has so we don't really have a a good road map for what will be happening. But she has some extra genes in her chromosomes. So this displays itself off in the other women shared kind of global developmental delays. And Right now. She's a scooter. She's bottom scooter and definitely on her way towards walking and we're really hopeful that she will walk and she's also nonverbal so it's kind of the way it exhibits for her okay so to dive into our show today. The first thing that I wanted to do for the benefit of our audience just let everybody know about a few weeks ago and this'll be like a couple of months ago once this show releases. We did a survey on risen in motherhood on our instagram account. In just asked our audience kind of where they are at and so these stats were really really interesting to discover and it. Maybe it'll just be interesting to you. See the makeup of our audience but thirteen percent of the risen. Other audience does have a child with special needs but seventy eight percent of our audience members know. Oh a fellow mom that does have a child with special needs and I thought that was just really interesting that like it seems like almost everyone is either personally affected with having a child with special. You'll need or they all know someone. So we're hopeful that today's show can just be really beneficial for so many of you in our audience. Not just for the Momma who is going through the Everyday Day with a child with special needs but also for those of you who want to support your friend in WanNa know how to love them and how to care for them well and the other interesting thing that we found out was that thirty one percent of MOMS who child with special needs don't feel supported by their church family. So that's something that we're going to talk about a little bit more specifically today how the church can help a family that does have a child with disabilities or special needs so that was just a stat that was sad not necessarily surprising but a hard stat to see so anyway. I think we'll just dive in here and we're GonNa let the conversation flow our hope. Is that you guys feel like you are sitting in a conversation with four MOMS Tom. Who are just being really candid? Invulnerable and honest about what it's like to raise a child special needs and how to just love a fellow mom who is in that spot so so for those women out there who may be are a little bit nervous or don't know what to say or how to move forward. I WOULD WANNA give them some more practical advice. I guess from from four Mama's who've been there let's just start with talking about how specifically can of friend support a mother or a family that does have a child with special needs. What have you guys seen done for you? Well on a super like practical level some of the most helpful questions for for whereas have been how can we include cannon in this. What places are easiest for you to get together And you know just the hint. Sometimes depending on the disabilities special needs families might need a place with fences or doors that lock or not a lot out of steps for easier access. You know things like that that it's not people aren't being selfish when they suggest that. Hey let's all go on a hike. They may just not realize that a backyard defense is probably more doable for families. But it's just I think it can be scary for people to ask that because they don't want want to bring attention to special needs in the wrong way or they don't want to hurt your feelings At all but just just keep asking those what how can how can we include and then what would be easiest for you guys today in this weather. Can you Even come out if it's the place that we're going to or this certain situation and that's been so kind and means the world to me when people say how can we include clued

Can i get a great question. Those are great questions show.

Nobody has a better stronghold on that. You you know that in this space and you guys look y'all have been the number one podcast to me from the beginning from july like immediately when you entered because of the way that you guys sound in the equipment that you had you just sounded so put together immediately and that gives an impression on a podcast.

I mean i don't know when you guys first started handed in this is kind of a not to flip the script but you know kind of ask you guys questions as you know. How was that that first beginning because i've been doing videos now for almost three years very very very different concept and very different conceptually what you're supposed to do on a on a podcast you know it's a lot more difficult when you can't just interact with the audience or rely on the comments answer they say asking you a. What do you think about this. You know you can interrupt yourself. He's gotta keep talking you. Gotta keep the tone going yeah. We don't neither one of us seem to have a problem level with talking plus. We had the added benefit of having each other to play off of right. You're you're flying your show solo and that's it's a little more challenging bit more daunting sure anytime you got someone might travis on who's just going to make jokes and then a beautiful voice like yours joel. It's going to be a lot easier but you guys have also. He may have been one of my biggest inspirations. I've been watching watching and listening to you guys from the very beginning essentially and i'm really grateful for the influence that you guys found crypto a wonderful voice.

You know i mean it was <hes> i mean obviously was only six years ago but nevertheless if he was it was obviously a lot of money to me back then just like it would be right now. I mean thousand dollars is still thousand bucks to lose eighty percent of that and centrally in a month or two months something along those lines was not fun <hes> but nevertheless you know fortunately i forgot about it for awhile and <hes> and then i got a new phone and i saw that there was a coin coin base app and downloaded it sure enough if my bitcoin was still in there just kept adding to it you know as a little bit cheaper..

You could say that they've actually got strong since last year and considering they won the title this to lose and liverpool's to try and take extra step neil. What does our model say about. The primarily grace is mandy the favorite again they are indeed so we give them a a sixty one percent chance of winning. They are the highest rated team. According to the soccer power index they have the best offense in <hes> the ep l. and also the best defense so all of that kind of adds up to to a shockingly high probability of winning. We really think that there's almost no chance that they finished any lower than third or really. Even i mean second. Can they have a like. I said sixty one percent chance of finishing first and then a twenty four percent chance of finishing second so not much room for anything below that but then you know liverpool is relatively close to them in terms of sti so man city has a ninety four point four s._p. That's on a zero one hundred scale and then liverpool the second best team has a ninety two point four so that's kind of a small gap when you consider that the third team tottenham sarah's team and nominally my team mm-hmm has an s._p._a. Of eighty five point three so massive difference in drop off between number two and number three <hes> but still liverpool has a just a twenty-seven percent chance in our model of of actually winning the e._p._l. What did the first weekend of games or the friendly community shield match up between these teams. It's a week ago. Tell us about what to expect. From this revelry in these opening match ups. I mean it is also sort of an open question as to how much we can learn about single soccer matches and i'm always amazed even when we get into the world cup that first sport was so little scoring that the better team tends to win with a good amount of frequency well we're actually in a talk later in the show in the rabbit hole about baseball upsets <hes> and and it's a game baseball is a game with more scoring than soccer and yet according to all the models and just if you sort of look at the the results of games the favorites favorites and soccer tend to win far more often than they do <hes> in baseball and so. I don't know why that is necessarily. I think there's a lot of things things going on about who is controlling soccer game that are not picked up in the scoreline. Necessarily right and advance stats are trying to do that work work. We talk about possession or you know. Further things like expected goals expected assists progressive passes. All of those things that are happening in a soccer are game that are you know sort of. We don't think about them in terms of the scoreline but they're all helping to tell the story so you know these two teams james city and liverpool are the best of those things too so that probably goes a long way to why we have them rated so highly why soccer power index thanks so much of them and they really are. They're returning their very good teams. From last year with slight tweaks slight improvements that you know should get them pretty far. One would think inc beyond the top two teams. There's an interesting dynamic among what we've typically considered the top tier in the ep all those that have been part of the big six for the past couple of beers and then the middle tier teams so our model which uses that sti showed a big gap going into the season between city and liverpool and chelsea and tottenham him that was a gap of about seven points neil said earlier but then there's another big gap of about five points to that next batch of teams manchester united and arsenal now everton which is often just on the outside looking in at the big six is only one point behind arsenal and all and then lester and wolverhampton just a couple of points further back so the golfs there really are between the top two and everybody else right but then three and four four and then this group that could all compete for for the fifth and sixth spots but also the third and fourth spots so you could see some a real shakeup shakeup in the table for the first time in a while we haven't had anyone outside of the current big six finish among the top six spots since lesser one at all in two thousand sixteen which of course was a shock collar bone. They didn't subtle just getting sex. They were like let's just win at all. This season could be even though i think some people are thinking i would sort of boring in city liverpool same thing. It's just a repeat of last year. There could be some really interesting. Things happen in the world of the top soccer teams. I think that's sorta. Uh shows how amazing it was that lester one in two thousand sixteen everyone points to that five thousand one odds they had which is a little misleading. They've really didn't have a one in five thousand chance of winning in a twenty team league. It was just a terrible line and the terrible line was a reflection of the public opinion as all odds and all lines are a reflection of the public opinion. Don't forget that that that no one else outside of this elite group could win that league so why not make the line five thousand one try to get some people the bed on it and they were burned so in many ways it kept that people on us and of course it's obviously gone back to the same handful of teams winning but just showing that it was possible i think was very big for the sport in terms of giving giving fans hope and giving everyone hope which will all all hopes will be diminished by october but at least right now the dream is alive because the lester her yeah well when you think about the history of the premier league which started with the nine thousand nine hundred ninety three season there have been only six winners. It's man united man city arsenal chelsea leicester blackburn and that's it nobody else in all those years and so and they have not been many teams that have even gone into a season thinking. They had a great chance so lesser winning. I think did a huge thing for the league. Now someone what else needs to actually win again someone different come on spurs. The beauty of it is that there are all these like competitions within the bigger competition trying to make it to the level. Were you qualify for europa. League champions league trying to just stay up in the primary league is is often more exciting later in the year so it isn't isn't just like you know another sport where winning is everything. There's many rewards existing in the league which will sort of add excitement in lieu of the playoffs and realistic chance of actually winning the championship and and <hes> having your hopes of doing that at all dashed. You know extremely early into the season season. He can settle some consolation tournaments. I mean what's wrong with that. I think well this goes to my theory about really all sports. There's no shame in rooting for a team that can't win at all and there are lots of other things along the way that makes sports fun. My college football team is not going to win at all but i'm still gonna enjoy the season and be happy when they knock someone off. Whatever and you are going to watch those five thirty eight. <hes> college football playoff odds like a hawk hawk note to me every single week when they go up or down <hes> not that's connected to that's not connected to an actual belief. They're actually going to make the playoff. It's more like well look. It's my team and they're doing well. They're not gonna win. Percent percent chance of making the playoffs. They were on the list nehal all right. I think we can leave that
"blackburn" Discussed on The Information's 411
"Happy Friday everybody. It's the information for one one. Your weekly look look at things in the tech world immediate world that we find interesting stories. We've written other items in the news. My name is Tom Dotan. I'm reporting here at the information joined today by preeminent preeminent Jolie Shah to talk about Amazon <hes> so couple of things that happen to Amazon both on our end and then more broadly in the past week or so so <hes> recently Jeff Blackburn a figure of interest us at the information for quite some time when of Jeff bezos top reports guy who's been there for a longtime decided or announce that he was going on a one year leave of absence and so that has lots of implications because he oversees many departments within the company which Prio will explain and then that kind of dovetails with a story that Joey and I published last week that because I was out we didn't have a chance to discuss but looked looked inside the situation Amazon studios and <hes> the head of that group Jen Sulky and why they've been struggling in many respects to stabilize and it's been kind of an unstable situation for some time anyway preempt Jolie. Thank you so much for joining us sure so. Let's start off like I said with the most recent News Jeff Blackburn so I- outlined it very briefly in the intro Preah but why don't you kind of explain who Jeff Blackburn learn is at Amazon's Jeff Blackburn is arguably in some minds the second most important jeff at Amazon and as we all know their three suggests toward the very top of the food chain. There's as there's Jeff Wilkie who runs the retail operation and there's Jeff Blackburn who's been around. He worked on the company's I._P._O.. As a banker and then enjoy about a year later he's been at Bazo suicide ever since and some argue that he's in some ways even more strategically important than Jeff Wilkie who runs on sprawling retail business because Blackburn has overseen some really big new areas of growth for Amazon so that includes the advertising in business which is run by one of his deputies Paul Quotas Amazon's AD business has been really important in the last couple of years. <hes> obviously great margins when you have an ad business. Yes and it's been growing crazy fast so that's a huge new area for the company. That's pretty important. Any user can see that too. When you search for a product the first many the things you see are sponsored products now Amazon so that's really important and then he also overseas Amazon video efforts in prime video and an Amazon studios he oversees the executive who runs Amazon music which is their effort to compete with spotify and apple music so he really does look after after a lot of these burgeoning new areas he runs all of Mea <hes> so bringing in new businesses like Zepos and whole foods and expanding banding Amazon <hes> so I mean you could make the argument that after Bezos he's the most important Jeff at the company so his announcement to his org that he is is going to take at the start of next year a year long. Leave has a lot of implications. Amazon says they you know wanted this out there early. Because is there going to be your gang. Blackburn stuff a bit or or not reordering but they'll have to figure out who's handling has stuff while he's gone and I mean anyone on watching. Those should should take from this that you know if they're if they're putting this out there earlier this information's going out like six months ahead of Blackburn going on leave so they can do planning about how things will work when he's gone. I mean reading the tea leaves. It looks like if Blackburn does come back. It may not be in the same exact role which I think is one of the important takeaways here if they're spending six months ahead of him leaving to plan for his absence <hes> <hes> it's GonNa look pretty different when he's gone right right is this one of the most significant moves atop. Amazon you can recall or there has been in in quite some time it is. It is a pretty big shift. I mean Diego. Piacentini who was also a senior executive took a leave and went to work with the Italian in government in their sort of digital operations a couple years back and he ended up not actually coming back even though they had said that was the plan that said Steve Kessel who's another top leader at Amazon did take a leave and he was to work on. I think it was kindle and then he came back and got involved in physical store efforts so will you know they call this a one year. Leave which you know states the obvious that there's a plan for him to come back if he's only going for one in year but we've seen that that doesn't always happen and it could be a quiet exit right we we'll get to studios in a second as one of the things that he oversees but among long the other Blackburn the other kingdoms in his dominion. What how are those doing. I mean are those generally successful parts of the company so the AD business. Governor says incredibly important for Amazon now and the thing is you can see there's a strong leader at the top of that. I mean underneath bopper and there's Paul quotas but Paul quotas has has also been at Amazon Lake Blackburn for about twenty years or so at this point and he is also on Jeff Bezos a senior leadership team the team they call it so that that has a very strong leader as it is you could make the argument that you know you've got another s she member who has been around for just as long running it <hes> perhaps it doesn't need the second watchful eye of Blackburn and music is also run by another executive. WHO's been around for some time. Hi Emma nee is run by a guy named Peter whose last name I will certainly botch if I try to pronounce it but he's also been around with Blackburn for more than a a decade at this point so why does a lot of senior leaders on his team who know the ropes and if he does come back it'll be interesting thing to see where they put him and it also be interesting to see how these businesses do without him because he's long been known within the company as is this like strategic thinker this guy who doesn't say more than he needs to but the kind of person who when he does speak he has a really good idea or a really the important idea and a person that bezos loves for that reason because he will say one thing that sort of changes the trajectory of the conversation with an idea. That's how he has been described to me by a lot of people in the past and united this profile of him Tom last year were we sort of learned his style and another thing about him that I think people have mentioned to me as something notable as he isn't crazy hands on like when he hires someone to run something for him he puts law trust in those people and he's there for guidance and things like that but he's been described to me as definitely not a micromanager so so. I mean you do see all these strong leaders in place underneath him in different aspects of businesses that he runs but at the same time you know it seems like certain divisions might be able to run themselves that right and so we don't to be very clear here. We don't know why he's leaving through obviously speculation from we've heard from Amazon employees reform rims on employs people generally industry but that an and to be very clear Amazon size. It's a one year leave of absence. That's how he you described it in a note to employees <hes> he you know at least as far as they're saying now is planning to come back after that one near he's. GonNa spend time with his family. Only he's been at Amazon for twenty years now which is a long time and place that moves fast right exactly so but but that said yes and that said there is a history though of executive coming back and there's a history of executives not coming back after leave also so the one sort of black spot for Blackburn on his record you know someone who's been Amazon for a long time and largely prospered there and is is so senior is Amazon studios CEOS which has been struggling for quite some time I mean they roy price left for various reasons as your most listeners might no but outside of that there were business challenges at Amazon Studios. They have struggled to make a mark in Hollywood. They brought in Jen Psaki a new executive from N._B._C. entertainment last year and visually you'd Tom and Majoli. You guys have written now again that they're still dealing dealing with lots of challenges over there. <hes> you know a year or year and a half later <hes> Batali. Can you tell us a little bit more about what's going on over there there and and why they're still struggling yes so you know like you said pre they brought in this new executive. Jenna soggy about a year and a half ago. She came from N._B._C. entertainment where she was the president. She's working broadcast television for almost twenty years before coming to Amazon so the big draw for someone like Jen was was not only does she know how to get T._v.. Made she knows how to get t made quickly on top of that. She was someone who has these really deep relationships. She was the woman who really Josh spearheaded shows like modern family and glee at N._B._C.. Shows like this is us. You know really deep roster talent that I think a lot of people hope folks you'd bring with with with her when she came to Amazon and this is what what Amazon wanted right part of the business challenge under right price was that Amazon Amazon you know one of the critiques was that they're not focusing enough on content that could go mainstream and be a huge breakout hit like game of thrones as Bazo said but but also you know Basil's instagrams about stranger things being so great and he bench watched it with his kids so that goes to show how these kinds of things that they brought to the table were very important to them definitely and I think one of the question marks is we know that these things were important tomatoes and we know. Oh that if you look at competitors like Netflix and Disney plus. There's definitely an arms race happening. For what types of shows are you putting out. How long do they stay Zeitgeist? I think that window for everyone but with Amazon there's also a bigger question of how important is original content. Really you know yes. Everybody wants their game of thrones. Everybody wants their stranger. Things but Amazon has a lot of other businesses underneath the Amazon prime video banner like people that are using the Amazon for its Channel Services Signing H._B._O.. Or showtime through that there are people who are watching Amazon for live sports you know they had since the ballgame so there there are lots of other services that people are coming to Amazon prime video for no no. I I see what you're saying. I mean I mean the bottom line. Though is that there was kind of a programming <hes> <hes> disagreement between Roy price and his regime and and the basis regime or sorry in Bezos and what he was expecting and there are obviously other reasons why Roy the price was gone but <hes> but jen was the show you know they they had a open job candidate role they interviewed a lot of people jen emerged the right choice so they saw it as the do you know Amazon studios have had let's be very clear. They've had some success <hes> in many respects recently. <hes> you know <hes> the Marlin Miss Mazel is a show on Amazon studios that has won emmys <hes> and and really kind of solidified their brand as being a very quality network. I mean so transparent but both of those shows were under the Roy price regime kind of Greenland and and some debuted under under a price and so what people were trying to see not with this new group was like what how is it shaping up and generally you know what we found as we even just ran the numbers is that they're just haven't been the volume of shows was that people were expecting to see <hes> under under Gen Sulky and as we kind of probed a bit deeper and saw the types of shows that were kind of delayed aid and into the inner workings of the Group. It sounds like there was you know problems that think things were not being run the way that they should be run and that was causing doing some friction with talent in Hollywood and there are budget issues too right but you guys found yes so that was kind of you know the opening look at this piece was we you know there was a meeting that happened happen earlier. This year where two executives not not jen but Vernon Sanders and Albert Chang to other top executives in the studios met with all the top TV development exacts and.

Hey, everyone, I'm Christine Blackburn from the story where the podcast filling in for Jefferson Graham, who's on vacation this week. You're listening to talking tech. Let's face it. Taking self fees is a lot of fun but not every southeast perfect. And now there are countless creative apps in the app store that make use of artificial intelligence to help us take better photos. The latest eye catching up that the market is face app. Now, it's a smart app that can transform your standard boring sell fees into something fun. For example, you could load a picture of yourself and use face up to see how your face would look if you were the opposite gender, which is creepy. I tried the filter that showed me with a beard and mustache unattractive. You can also add a smile to your face. So maybe you've taken a picture of yourself and you're not smiling. Well, you go to face app, and you hit this button. The next thing, you know, you're smiling. How do they know what your teeth? Look like, I don't know. But they do. Now. Here's how you do. It. You simply take a fresh selfie of yourself or you can upload one. You already have in your phone gallery to the app server once that's done. You can choose from a number of filters available on the screen. I checked out all the effects and the one that impressed me. The most was the one that made you look older, which I'm not saying I want to look older, but it seemed pretty accurate. I mean, how accurate are the filter effects? Well, some of them do need a bit of work. I mean, some shots that I tried out had an artificial look about it, for example, the filter that takes you back in time. And makes you look younger it really just softens and smooth skin, which looks fake in totally unrealistic. But it's still kind of nice to look like you're in college again now all of your transformed cell fees. Are automatically saved the galleries. You can always go back and check them out. But here's something you should know the face app. Watermark automatically is affixed to the photos.

No, if you share that it's going to have the face app watermark, and everybody's gonna know that you did face app. So you better figure that out before you start posting all in all face up is a fun out that you can check out to try some experimental looks. It still has some way to go to make selfie alterations realistic. And it's not always accurate and many features are not available on the free edition, but just for fun.

How the midterm elections could shape tech policy
"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by Colgate. University now in its bicentennial year. Colgate university is celebrating a proud tradition of intellectual rigor at it's beautiful campus in central New York. The deadline for early decision this November fifteenth. Learn more at Colgate dot EDU. Net neutrality broadband policy privacy, the midterms could be major for tech from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy Hollywood. I managed to avoid it for two whole days, but the mid-term elections actually could have a big impact on the tech industry because the backlash against big tech is one of the only issues out there that is actually bipartisan and on top of that a couple of newly elected legislators have specifically made tech part of their agenda Beit net neutrality privacy regulations or even whether platforms are suppressing political voices. So let's dig into this in quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She says both sides of the aisle have been considering ways to regulate big tech in recent years. The problem is anytime you have a split congress. When you have Democrats running the house and Republicans running the Senate and a Republican in the White House. You're going to have a hard time getting anything done. So just imagine the amount of gridlock. We're about to head into. And then you see are Democrats really going to want to hand. Donald Trump a major piece of legislation terrain in the tech industry. When in so many ways they're trying to act as a check on his administration who are some of the incoming legislators that could at least try to have a hand in shaping policy. Well, there's one incoming legislator who will be familiar to the tech industry because she was formerly a member of the house that Marsha Blackburn in Tennessee. She is sort of infamous for her ties to the telecom industry, which has often put her at odds with the tech industry on issues, like network neutrality and privacy. We also have Josh Hawley who unseated Claire mccaskill he was the attorney general in Missouri. And he as attorney general launched investigations into Google Facebook Uber equifax and a lot of it had to do with data privacy issues. A lot of it had to do with antitrust issues. I think you could expect him to continue to bring those issues to congress. And then the big race. Everybody was watching was Ted CNN. Cruise beta a work race baiter work was heavily backed by members of the tech industry. Ted Cruz has sort of been a needle in the side of the tech industry. So I think you do see this growing coalition of anti tech voices on the right? You know, it's interesting because congress in particular, the Senate hasn't always been the most well informed bunch when it comes to tech. And I wonder with all of these kind of young up and coming candidates getting elected to the house. Do you think that there's a possibility that the conversations about technology could get more sophisticated? That's a really interesting question. So on the first hand, I'll say that. I think members of the Senate are learning. But I think there's something to that. I think there's something to having people in the Senate who really understand at a fundamental level technology. I've even heard from people, you know, as critical as they are of Marsha Blackburn. And as fearful as they are of her being in the Senate, you know, at least she is somebody who understands these issues, and so maybe that's a starting point. Is he lebowski is a senior writer for wired covering, politics and national affairs. She also said we shouldn't get our hopes up for net neutrality legislation coming out of congress anytime soon, but a federal privacy law has an outside chance. And now for some related links after twenty thousand employees walked out of Google last week to protest how the company has handled sexual misconduct claims yesterday, Google agreed to some of the demands those employees are making the big one, it's ending forced arbitration. So when people report sexual harassment, the company won't insist that such claims be handled internally and more importantly, it can't prevent victims from taking their claims to court. All right back to the midterms for a minute. I already threated about this. But I think it's worth repeating even if congress doesn't get a lot tech year after the midterms.

"You missed the just a moment ago. The exciting roar that came from the crowd here as the one of the large screens that's on the Fox News channel put up the graphic saying that Marsha Blackburn had been projected as the winner of this Tennessee Senate race, and you put it all together very nicely there. Jared this is a racist Marsha Blackburn had trailed for a very long time. And it seemed that when President Trump came here just last weekend. It was the exclamation point on exactly what she needed to take this race filled. Gradison a popular democratic governor in this state for many years when he's. Served in that role. But it didn't seem that it was going to hold the as the Republican machine really put their emphasis on trying to keep the seat that Senator. Bob corker is giving up. So as we see it now. And the Fox News decision desk has projected that Marsha Blackburn. We'll take this Senate seat not timing as of yet as to when we may hear from congresswoman Blackburn, but we're stir that it will be somewhere in short order. And of course, we will bring that to you when she comes up and addressing supporters here in Franklin, Tennessee tonight. All right. Thanks so much Grenell. Scott again, it congresswoman Senator elect I should say, Marsha Blackburn campaign headquarters, Marsha Blackburn will succeed Republican Bob corker in the United States Senate in Tennessee that a Republican hold a another major race. Call a new projection to make. This one in West Virginia. The Fox News decision desk.

"Have you been hearing sort of similar depths of feeling or or or how voters are conceiving of this midterm election in in Tennessee absoulutely, and we can see it with the ads the attack ads related to dis Senate race, we have Marsha Blackburn or groups that are affiliated to Marsha Blackburn. You know, accusing governor Bredesen's of shielding a top aide when he was covering her from sexual harassment saying that he's shredded the sexual harassment notes. You know, the investigation that he's traded them to protect these aid. Brennan has said that he did it to protect the victim. And then we have the reticent campaigner groups affiliated with a British and campaign calling Marsha Blackburn. So so we can see it down here. And one of the things that Tim was talking about he was talking about immigration Blackburn, you know, has used similar nine cents President Trump. She you know, lately with Kevin of migrants approaching the US she has characterized an invading force. And that that's something similar to what President Trump has been calling here calling the group of migrants, even though there is no proof of the there's no proof that they're criminals. Right. So so we can see how both of them are talking to each other with truth or with lies, you know, they're trying to. Referendum on truth. Tim is saying I think tennesseans here can see that as well. Quick question. Here a Ron Hinson in Arizona told us a little earlier in the show that that it's so close near Zona. They might not have a result. A final result by the end of the day Tuesday. Is it that close in Tennessee? Also, or or do you think that one of them will out a pretty clear win by the end of the day? Well, I can tell you my newsroom expects results this same night, the, but I I mean, we we're not sure yet depends to the counties, of course, when we think it's going to be very close. We do think that early voting numbers of that the counties are going to start releasing them around seven seven thirty at night on election day, those early voting numbers may be indicative of who's going to be the winner in the Grenon Toyo race because the racist not as close. But in terms of the US Senate race, we're not sure that those numbers are going to clearly indicate who's going to be the winner. Right. Well, tina's built Sean speaking to us from Nashville politics reporter for Nashville public radio. Thank you so much there, Hugh. Thank you. Lisa data did. Excuse me. Lisa. Lisa. I talked to fast I got to slow down a little bit here. But there's a lot at stake. So what are you here in serious reporting from from Tennessee, so much the fact that it really we have yet. I mean, it's kind of the same story as we heard from Arizona as well where it it is a race. That is coming down to the momentum and dynamics in this final day. And now you have conservative Marsha Blackburn, kind of going all in with the president. And we're going to find out in the next day. If that pays off for her not it's interesting that race in Tennessee. I also liked to watch because it's a reverse gender split. We talk so much about female voters. But what's happening? There is the democrat male contender. Phil Bredesen's is winning with women, Marsha Blackburn. The female Republican is winning with men so often we think women vote for women actually, it is more about party in a way when you look at gender splits. And right now looks like Marsha Blackburn is gaining more with women than Phil Bredesen's gaining with men interesting. So we've got five minutes left here. Let's see how many calls we can roll through K Lisa's. Let's go to any who's calling from Tucson Arizona, Freddie. You're on the air. Hey, thanks for taking the call. Hey, I wanted to talk about the candidate. Nick sally. I'm a retired aviation specialist. Mc Sally age. I grew citing a hard to do a conventional job all of my default setting. I'm independent I have been for decades. I vote for both parties based on who. I really think is gonna solve problems. I can't vote for MC Sally. Even though all of my default settings personally morally want to vote for her because she won't show up for any interviews that any media wants.

"Blackburn. Great way to bring us together. I think what's happening is the left is being driven to the edge by the president and his success. And they're just snapping in lashing out of the president may be driving not with his rhetoric. But I think with all his winning just can't handle winning because they were never winners. Don't make sense five fifty one. It's time for elrushbo. Guy named Roberto. Sierra journalism, professor at USC wrote an op Ed in the Washington Post about the migrant caravans from Central America. And he blasted President Trump for demagoguery on poor endurance. He slammed Republican candidates for demonizing immigrants, but the professors real targets were Democrats. He trashed them for being silent about immigration on the campaign trail. The professor says that Democrats are a wall, and they need to speak up, and then he singled out Pelosi for not responding strongly enough when President Trump promised an executive order on birthright citizenship. So professor let me school. You are this close to the election. You're democrat buddies cannot risk doing what you want them to do. They can't risk reminding voters that they support open borders sanctuary cities anchor babies and caravans of illegal immigrants, forcing through our borders. Whenever voters. Learn the truth about what Democrats really want for this country, Democrats lose it's that simple, and they don't wanna lose. So they have to lie and people like you have to put up with it and get mad about it which pleases us.

"The positives of Marsha Blackburn. If you vote Marsha Blackburn in Barbra, Streisand might leave the country, first and foremost, but second on her website. She has it all listed. She has issues. She has a big topic of issues on our website. And all these different topics that are important to tennesseans are listed in one of those of that she will protect the second amendment. And on our website says Marsh is a firm believer in the that the second amendment is one of our most important freedoms. And that she understands the importance of protecting our constitutional rights bear arms, the founder saw the crucial importance of giving citizens the right to protect themselves and the government must protect that. Right. Tennessee tennesseans. No that gun violence is a problem and marshes working with members in both parties to reform the mental health system and evaluate violence in our culture, she's committed to enacting policies that prevent these senseless tragedies off protecting the second amendment. She has earned an a rating from the NRA. So that's a positive there for Marsh. Not only of her stance on the second. But that she is willing to put it out there for everyone to see and read. She's not ashamed of that. She's not she's not not putting that out there. So that she can flip flop on it later. Because that's that's what Bredesen's is doing this. What he did? When he went from his a rating to a D rating with the NRA. And you have to wonder..

"One interesting thing that in my reading a couple of people have brought up. And that is. The absence of any of the stances that the issue positions that politicians typically put her website, Phil Bredesen's his website. Doesn't have much on it at all as far as the issues. Go. And that strikes me as odd. Number one. As as the whole thing goes, you have to stand for something or you'll fall for anything. And in my opinion. Phil Bredesen's not standing for a whole lot. If he was I think he'd put it out there. For everyone to see in black and white on the website. He hasn't done any of that one of the positions that Phil Bredesen's claims. A he is superior over. Martha Marsha Blackburn is in the way he would govern. And the way he would lead in the way, he would stir serve the public. That's that's all he has to fall back on is their management styles are different. And I kept seeing this kind of a recurring theme in the articles. I would read was that. Phil Bredesen's doesn't take any heart stains on much of anything. He keeps going back to their management styles between him and Marsha Blackburn. And he thinks that his is going to be a better style of reaching across the aisle. The Koumba ya the getting along with everyone kind of mentality. He he seems to think that the. The angry back and forth in politics is part of the problem, and that they should get along to to help the country as a whole if they were in. I don't know about that. Yeah. That sounds good. That sounds nice and. The right thing to do they get along. But do we really want our policies and getting along it because if they're getting along if the left is getting along with the right vice versa? Then somebody's compromising somebody's coming off their position to appease the other side.

"And all in correspondent Tremaine lead joins me. Now, I feel like this is an issue that when you look at these races. It's true North Dakota. It's definitely turned Tennessee in Texas. It's true where it doesn't get a lot of natural tension, but it's really pretty live on the ground. It doesn't get much attention because Tennessee is so bright raid. Right Republican read, but we talked to these farmers in the ground even the big guys like, Mr. Tosh. He's one of the biggest pig dealers in the country, but he talks about not having enough to hire people. You can't expand farm because of the it's so expensive to bring in steel every aspect of their businessman affected, but mostly they just can't hire local, folks. And this is something that that Bredesen's. The former governor has really it seems to me campaigned on is that right? That's right. And thinking about British unlike Blackburn Blackburn is a hardcore Trumper by she associates yourself so closely with Donald Trump, we're Britishness is seen as the democrat. But he was a middle row guy. They trust him. He speaks their language. He's run ads where he's in this little bean farms talking about how important it is to protect the. Those fields and those farmers, and that message seems to be resonating. But is just such a rate state. Yeah. Do the people that you talk to view it as a sensually a proxy for Trump. I mean, it sounds like that's that's what's motivating them. They don't like the Trump tariff policy. The view Blackburn is essentially enabler of the president it is. But they're considering is purely on business that kind of okay with the rest of Trump being Trump, you're making it harder for us to do business as took about pigs. The concern is if China goes to Brazil for so we beans or pigs. You may never get that road back. And then was mentioned what do we do with the pig? Inners China buys all the innards. Right. So he started slaughtering hogs, you get pork chops and ham there a special parts of it that pig only China by so it's impacting every level their business in the chart show. I mean, the the decline in Chinese consumption of soy beans has been absolutely precipitous. Like, it's a real thing. That's happening right now, a huge market for American farmers has been almost entirely co. That's right. And again, the concern is do we ever get that back because these are going to Brazil, and you start creating these other paths these Other other? countries and other countries are developing their business model, it's like that. So you can unwind this in six months. But what happens is the relationships? Get established the sort of supply chains get established. That's right. And then you can say, oh, the terrorists are off. And the business doesn't come back has attitude. It's tougher to do business. We'll go elsewhere. But my all right, tra-, mainly. Thanks so much. Great work. Thank you still have one of those vulnerable Republican seats up for re election the race for Nevada next..
Talk of entitlement reform takes over as midterms near
"There were not politically, correct. But they've done what needed to be done in order to unleash the animal spirits. Alan greenspan's. Alan Greenspan, Stephanie. It's pretty tough to argue with him. Are you sure he said he loves the Trump tax cuts or you gotta sit there constructive. Now. He loved he loved it. They were politically incorrect. Now, what he doesn't love is that we haven't done entitlement reform to accompany them. I wanna you know, it's coming to that. But he loves the Trump tax cuts one of the things about entitlement reform that we need is it surprises me the young people. Don't get more engaged on the entitlement reform ya you know, they sort of latch onto issues that are very very popular in the news. Entitlement reform or something I think people should really care about. Listen, the issue with the tax cut is it's a clear positive for corporate America. The tax code as it was far too complicated. But the amount of taxes that they cut you could ask Jamie Dimon. He will say, listen, I'm glad we got the tax cut. We didn't need it to be as much as it is because we are facing a massive deficit, and as far as the tax cut goes we're seeing corporations do so well two weeks ago. I the business council summit there hasn't been a hundred fortune five hundred there tickled pink, and they're saying they're spending there investing hiring and even without the tax cuts. Deregulation has been a huge positive for corporate America because remember in the Obama administration. It was not a pro business administration. And even if companies weren't faced with new taxes, the threat of regulations of threat more could be coming down the pike was preventing companies from spending. You're definitely seeing corporate America in a very good place book at the stock market one of the reasons the stock market is doing so. Well, suddenly. Corporations have twice as much cash on the books. So it is a positive obviously have a very tight labor market time to see wages push up more than they have this far. So Stephanie role year in the second bluest bubble in America. I always think that silicon valley's a bluer bubble the Manhattan, but I just had Marsha Blackburn on she's had a nineteen point swing in her direction over two weeks, Heidi Heitkamp has fallen apart. And she did a pratfall releasing the name of abuse survivors against their will yesterday that is blowing up. You've got mic. Sally surging ahead of cinema. Do you sense that the blue tide is a thing of the past? And that in fact, we're looking at it read time, I've talked about this a lot. I've never seen a massive Blue Wave coming thing that distresses me isn't are we going massive, bluer massive read the thing that distresses me is the hollowing out of the center on both sides. That is what I think is the most concerning and I think we're seeing it in both parties. Did you read David Brooks piece yesterday about the eight percent on the left? China today. Oh, are you really? Because that is that's the most interesting thing. But the noise comes from those two groups, that's the note, and by the way, our cable channels both left and right that noise. I don't know how we're ever going to break out of this you you are one hundred percent, correct. On a us. An example for you on Monday when I woke up I wasn't on TV. I heard what not the media thought of what Hillary Clinton said on Monday on Sunday about her husband, and Monica Lewinsky. Okay, saying it was not an abusive power. So I said via Twitter take something clear what the president of the United States has a sexual encounter with an intern. It doesn't matter how she behaved, blah, blah, blah. That's an abusive pallet. I'm not saying I'm not saying it's a soft. It is an abuse of power. When I tell you, Hugh, I got a nihil lead on Twitter, and I should hold on a second. Because of course, I've wanted what about Trump what about companies both things can be true abuse. Power is not unique to one industry wants sport, one one nation or one political party. But the tribalism we are seeing the absolute forgiveness of one side and an assault of another. Stop. It's unreasonable. It is going to be very difficult to break away from the profit motive of super serving the six in the eight percent. But I'm glad you're doing the David. That's what that's why I watched up and he going do the David Brooks. Brooks column is the smartest thing I've read in ages. Hey, man payments. Definitely real good to talk to you s rule on Twitter American, of course on MSNBC. Don't go anywhere. I'm coming right back America time to keep talking about these midterms.

And she went on to say that Marsha Blackburn that is a female a Republican congresswoman running for the Senate in the in Tennessee against the democrat, Phil Bredesen's, she called her views terrifying are horrifying, and so she's endorsing the democrat, Phil Bredesen's.
