Lily Cole on Why the Fashion System Needs Reform Now
"Hello this Zimran Ahmed founder, and CEO of business to fashion and welcome to live. On this episode I am thrilled to have with me a face that I. I got to know when I first started sneaking into fashion shows here in London about a decade ago. lily. Cole was an up and coming model and those days and she's gone on to have. A career in the fashion industry. But in in addition has become an activist of sorts has studied. At some very very well known universities and has recently published a book which is called who cares wins reasons for optimism in our changing world and so I'm delighted to have lily here with us today. Welcome Lily. Thanks for having me links to see. To, see you to Of course we're GONNA talk about your book, but you have such an interesting backstory that brought you into the fashion industry. So I thought we could actually start there and then get to how you decided that writing a book was kind of something that you wanted to do and how it connects back to some of your experiences and fashion. But so to begin with, you want to just tell us I'm sure it's you know everyone has their origin story and I'm sure. You're you're tired of telling it but. How how did you first get into this weird and wonderful industry? Irish a group in London. and. I was fourteen years old. Just, doing my thing hanging out with my friends in central. London I one evening and a scout from stool agency CRA Benjamin. Hart. Came over to me, he was very looking model himself this very handsome oatman was approaching. And then he talked about the agency had did I want to muddle and gave me business cards and within a year I was kind of flying around the doing I mean even that year I, started walking the next things really took off. The moment when you? Feel like you really realize that you're going to become quite a big deal. In fashion, Industry Missouri Specific Opportunity that you you come. Yeah. It's probably a few. Sixteen A. Nose Service Fifteen. New York and opened anesthesia legis show a campaign with Steven, Meisel and at the time I'd never heard of him. You know I didn't know anything about fashion. So I didn't I didn't know what the meaning of of that was. But when I was in New York for the show kind of sense, the buzz around. Him and his work that I'd worked within. A sense of it and and then I was remember another moment when I was in back in London. And was. was on a motorbike going between shows, which were as you probably know, tons of shows I was trying to fit like five a day sometimes, and so is getting annoyed between shows like it makes them and I had this moment on the back of his motorbike probably fifteen sixteen years old going through central London and seeing my face on the side of these red buses. What? It was quite made it feel real in a very surreal way how I went from Bash into writing a book, which is obviously a big jump by the book writing about fashion and how the experiences I had in bashing took journey along winding journey that I'm still on in which the book is a product. So after a few years working the fashion industry, I started to become more and more wet of some of the challenges with different supply chains I was made aware of the few the companies I was working with they were having are damaging impacts on the people or the environment within which is working. With a charity, Cool Developmental, Justice Foundation who still work with WHO drew my attention to cotton and how cotton farming can be really destructive but I feel very. Conflicted I guess because I thought quite responsible. So what I was appetizing into watching. And I decided instead of focusing on the negative which you know of course, we can I wanted to focus on the positive and the fact that there are different ways that supply chains can be set up and managed

As Tech Earnings Roll In, Air Is Coming Out of the Stock Bubble
"You? There's one day next week. We get Apple Amazon alphabet. What a CRA-! That's going to be a crazy night on fast Baldwin. Some might argue that the setup for big tech earnings is even better after the big back that we saw this week in advance of those earnings. Yeah so sickening to the rules of the Game I. Think I'm GonNa go for the Gusto here and go for the daily double. And my question or answer or closer is? What our stimulus and GDP figures I think the GDP figures are going to China a little bit more insight into what exactly economic activity is, and what the breakdown there of is as well I think the the details. The devil will be in the details as it pertains to the stimulus bill, I think vk meals, grotto of all hit on it. Really GonNa need to see. How much of the unemployment, benefit is going to be continued. What small businesses exactly are going to qualify for? What other restrictions might be put on large companies and the way that I'm playing it giving that as Again very adeptly pointed out the Fed is going to continue to print money left, right or centre. I think that bodes well for precious metals again you know I hate to hop on the bandwagon, but it's it's clearly the right trained to be on and the home. Builders are also set up nicely I. Mean You saw earnings yesterday? You've got them. They're in a unique situation with. Specifically to homebuilders, because they serve a a slightly higher niche market, those consumers are a bit more insulated from shocks and with the low rate environment, and giving that we've all been talking about stretch valuations across asset classes. It's really a case of where else do you put your money?
EncroChat user experience includes getting owned, going to prison
"I think it was a couple of months ago. Actually that we I bike about this incur chats far network. This is encrypted like modified android foreign. That was marketed to criminals feel like doing their super-secret high end drug deals and stuff they got aren't pretty hard a while ago and wound up actually shutting down, they pushed out notifications to all of their customers, saying. Yeah, don't use our phones anymore. We're just GONNA close turns out. They did get courteous. Courteous earns looks like by French authorities, but the resulting arrests have started, and it's just i. mean this is big. This is amazing. Yeah, this story certainly has gotten bigger and bigger. The more we hear about it, and yet they got well and truly earned by the ranch. it does seem like by had deployed malware out onto the individual phones using that. That to be able to scrape up conversations and photos, a who the other information being exchanged in before it was encrypted before it was sent out over the network and have been doing so for quite some time. Yes, and then the fact that it managed to lost this long. Yeah, because there's been a whole bunch of race and a bunch of groups. Criminals wound up all over Europe through this corporation. In fact, they managed to keep it. kind of under wraps as long as they did is pretty impressive, as well good, good obstacle, but yeah, just a really really interesting story and a close to them. You know some people are asking about the you know. What does it mean to be able to? Do? You know why lawful interested in this manner ride by going out mass compromising age devices. Without the cooperation of the Manufacturer and it's. Interesting comparison to the other Crypto, wars was going on about into encrypt, or you know how adversaries in this case, law enforcement move around the network to be able to go where the daughter is. Who Cares about into their? Own the edge devices, and this is just such a great example of that it is, but I mean the huge irony here is if I were using signal on irs that'd probably would have been most of them would have been fine right well, of course, they yeah that that is kind of funny presumably IOS. Remote sports that you could use the deployment with probably more expensive than whatever it took. EARN CRA CHATTAN and pushed off. Some of the top people, but they wouldn't have got like I. Mean a lot of people are getting a getting arrested here. I actually asked Joe Cox joys been doing great reporting on this in fact, and actually asked him to tell me what he thinks is significant about all of this, and here's what he had to say. I think what's different hair. When it comes to the increase chat operation as opposed to technical investigations by law enforcement is the Shit scale I mean. We're not talking about single dark web marketplace. With some Athens some sellers of cocaine that sort of thing. This was the technical infrastructure for a large chunk of organized crime across continents. We're talking hitman money launderers drug traffickers, basically the real career criminals used this phone service and is very hard to overstate how big of a blow this is to them. People are trying to escape from the countries that in people going to ground. There is going to be likely severe disruption to the bulk drug trade with us. So at yeah, turns out the Anchorage user. Experience is not quite what people signed up for. Some of the arrests have been spectacular I, mean we? There was one where there was. Tons of coke was seized. We've got twelve hundred kilos of math, but probably the one that really caught my eye was actually this news just broke this morning, but Dutch police actually found some shipping containers one of them was set up to be like holding cells, and another one had like a dentist chair in it and bags full of pliers, and it was like a torture chamber, and they even had collected intelligence on who was due to spend some time in this special shipping container. Container and warned them often sent them into hiding, but I mean yeah. It looks like really heavy. Bad Crooks have have all been getting busted here.
Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God
"March seventeenth two thousand. The Movement for the restoration of the Ten Commandments of God held a huge party to celebrate the end of the world. The party was scheduled to last for two days as the leaders had roasted three bulls for feasting and acquired seventy crates of soft drinks. Hundreds of men women and children had arrived to join in the festivities and prepare for Armageddon yet. Armageddon came much more quickly than any of them had anticipated as the members gathered in the chapel at the primary complex in Congo. Uganda the doors and windows were boarded. Shut THE CHURCH. Building was set on fire. And at least seven. Hundred congregants were burdened ally. Hi I'm Vanessa. Richardson and this is colts. Apart cast original this is the thirteenth episode in our Daily Series. On the strange prophecies made by different cults and their leaders throughout this month. Were taking a daily look at the myriad of apocalyptic predictions to try and uncover. What makes these revelations so appealing? I'm here with my co host. Greg Paulson pyeryone today. We're discussing the beliefs of Christiania. Marin Day she convinced member cult the Movement for the restoration of the Ten Commandments of God. That Armageddon was imminent after predicting the world would end on January. First two thousand. The cut leadership killed their own members for reasons that are still not entirely clear. It's very likely they didn't want members to realize their doomsday predictions. Were wrong the Movement for the restoration of the Ten Commandments of God began in nineteen eighty nine. When Cronje Morandi a bartender banana beer brewer and sex worker claimed that the Virgin. Mary had appeared before her in the vision. Mary commanded Cronje to clean up her life and spread the news of a coming apocalypse. Cra Dona claimed at the world would face awful tribulation from God if people did not turn back to him and follow his ten commandments to the letter most people looked upon CR- Dona with skepticism. However she brought her predictions to form a government employee. Joseph Kibera Terry. He had also claimed have seen visions from God and when Cronje came to him he believed God had brought her into his life. Cuba Terry's endorsement of Kunia gave her story. The clouded needed together. Cronje and Cuba Terry Spread Their Doomsday message. Luckily for them Uganda was in a state of total chaos. Making Armageddon look highly plausible. Even the most sceptical Ugandans of the day the entire nation had been embroiled in a civil war with atrocity after atrocity being committed on all sides in addition HIV and AIDS had torn through the country at a rapid pace killing indiscriminately to make matters worse. The Roman Catholic Church one of the only pillars of stability in the region had become embroiled in its own awful scandals. People were desperate for safety and answers in could dona. Morandi was all too happy to provide. She called the people of Uganda follow her and promised to shelter them through the coming wrath of God. This message proved effective over the course of eight years. The movement's membership grew to over four thousand and built several dedicated living complexes throughout the region. Yet for all the cult successes Cra Dona had never decided on an official date for the end of the world to maintain control. Cordona stated that the world would end on January. First two thousand. The Colt was prepared to die. When the day finally came but as January first came and went so did CRA donas credibility. People began to leave the movement on mass in order to save face. Crony announced a new date. For the end of the World March eighteenth. They would have a grand party to celebrate starting on the seventeenth when over seven hundred people showed up to the Kananga Complex Cronje provided the apocalypse she had promised by burning them alive within the chapel. Some believe she died in the fire while others believe she escaped but more horrific revelations were still to come as the Ugandan government investigated the movement's Bases. They discovered mass graves at each and everyone in total. Three hundred ninety. Five additional members of the movement had been shot stabbed and poisoned by their own leadership sometime before the fire overall the Movement for the restoration of the Ten Commandments of God had proven to be one of the deadliest cults ever created when her doomsday prophecies. Failed CR- DONIO. Marinda made sure they would never fail again by killing more than two thousand of her own followers whether she died with them or escape to safety is unknown to this
Banking on Voice - ENACOMM & Bank Independent
"Us about about the project and so what what does the Alexa skill that you guys have developed do? And what was the? What was the thinking behind? When we first started our conversations with an accom- we didn't know what to expect. We didn't even know what to do with really St- I think Stacy said it best. Is that so we started with the thought of? How can we take our typical telephone banking system? That's that technology has been around for four. Seems like forever and so we were like. How do we repurpose that into modern technology and modern use cases so partnering together with an Economy Fintech provider? They are really at true partnership here. We were the very first one to come out with a fully functioning Alexis skill in the community bank space. Now some of the larger institutions the international banks that are housed here in America or even some of the couple of super regionals they were already doing some of the s but really we felt like our customers were longing for that as well to be able to say. Hey if a bank of America or chase would have this type of service. Why can't wait? I see we have the same type of access to your systems so they came from a customer. Need they actually the customs approach to and also this. Will you a proactive and thought well? We need to get ahead of this before they do. It was really more proactive. Because of our customer base being very tech savvy and especially our newest market which is the Huntsville Alabama market. We felt like we need to make sure that in order for us to compete against the larger institutions especially from a tech perspective. We needed to be proactive in this space. So when I say fully functioning that's the differentiation between us and some of the other banks or credit unions that have that they may have an Alexa skill. But it's more informational sharing like where are we wears locations. What's our hours of operation? We really wanted it to be truly as said an extension of our other tools that we offer to art whether it'd be mobile or online or telephone so they log in and get account information for me. Personally I've got a college aid's daughter and so was the question we get from her. Hey Dad I need some money so then I can go and just by walking through the house. Tae Alexa Transfer money from account to my daughter's account so those are some of the use cases that we have and we're continuing to expand that working on some other use cases right now to expand as far as card management for the debit cards. The credit cards and those kind of things as we continue to move forward. I see okay focused on the the most common actions that people form on their accounts festival implemented those and then now you looking for the more advanced features those in as well. That's great okay. Great Stacey tells about the project from your side then what what was it like to Cra? Alexis go four bank whether any particular challenges that you had to face. And what advice would you give to someone? Who's WHO's looking to do the same. Whose is taking on a project to the signs. That's a great question because there is a specific answer that it's really got nothing to do with how we build a skill it has to do with multiple parties involved in the thing you have to look out for the difficulties run into is the larger companies involved Talked by Google Amazon Right Amazon. The company that is the keeper in the approver of these skills and so's Google on their side. I will go to that side of the house but Amazon. This is the first real step into a retail banking application type of thing right in my past i. I did this for Mobile APPs with apple when they first had their APP store open. Add it for banks and it's the same type of learning curve with working with Amazon going through the approval process Amazon not understanding how everyone thinks they understand how a bank works. And I'll say that just exactly the same. Everyone believes they understand. How Bank works when you work with. Community banks. That'S NEAT. Learn how they actually work and each one little different from another one and you can try to define a process for which you wanNA bring on these skills right for Elixir. Whatever but these skills for getting the weather has total different requirements than the skill for your banking and we had compliance issues. We have enrollment issues. We have Lincoln account issues. We have all these things you have to do and be compliant with on our side and actually I was walking Amazon through the process. Of sometimes you have to change the way you're thinking because this is not a weather APP. This is not a joke. Gap does not attribute this is banking and there are some things. The banks are already doing to link accounts that may be at to adjust your expectations. How Link Accounts Right? That's just one example and going through the approval process with Amazon and it different iterations. That's really probably. The most complex part of working new technologies into banks is yet. There's a third party provider like Amazon or Google. Who has to approve these things and has certain expectation on their side of how the system will work in. We have to really Kinda match the expectations and the realities. What a bank needs right to? Does that mean that there were those pushback on the on the platform side on the new Google side because he went meeting standards was it the other way round. What did you need things from them? They weren't providing up front. And you have to be kind of both. It's kind of both so the expectation that you're starting from scratch realized that a bank might already have a method for linking accounts for example in Kelly States. Bank independent already. Lincoln accounts through methodology in order to enable their voice banking on the phone system for that and so there are some things that instead of confusion users like it's a brand new system to create new pin number. You all this new stuff. Sometimes Caesar let them allow them to use what they already have and so it was sort of both. We have more things than they expected. Amazon's system wasn't really built to take an existing system. Like what we had at the same time. You know there are some things we have to come up to snuff on on voice engagement right conversational banking conversational. Technology is different than a menu driven technology in Kelly. Had said we're reiterated extending what we're doing on the voice baking side telephone banking but it's extending the feature functions but the way you engage with it is different. So there's a learning curve on our side to to make sure you have the conversational structures. Correct your engagement that so it was both sides. This is very typical of bringing in a new technology into an existing market place. That has its own high level of rules right. There's a high bar a ruling compliance and you have another system as brand new that is trying to create rules of compliance rights. And so we put those two together in. This is typical this. This is exactly how it was with mobile APPS. And I think that's what you're gonNA see. It's GonNa have that ramp right now. It's early in the curve for adoption and over time as voices getting across all these other channels and the software whether it's Amazon or Google on all these channels whether it's in your smart tv or on your phone it's going to accelerate. The friction is gonNA remove overtime when it sounds like they would have lended as as much from the experiences as you guys have. That's going to streamline things for everyone the projects that come along in the future exactly my question around that was about the the iteration of this is kind of new and we got a lot of the ground truth from the feedback from users and looking at the data of course financial transactions quite private and a bank's not going to want to publicize those will hand them over to supplies in the same way as maybe health data. So how did you get that signal back? That's a find out whether the user interaction was working. And how did you guys work together to to solve that problem like you said? One of the biggest concerns with this was around security and especially traditional banking where we're not always the the ones that are willing to step out and do things so from especially from security and privacy perspective because that is paramount to who we are as an institution to ensure that we are taking care of our customers and making sure that their information secure safe and that they are comfortable not only them but then also with a stacey said our regular regulators and auditors and those things pile up over and over again to make sure that that we have the right security protocols in place and so that was some learning curve for both US and Amazon that we all had to mature and continue to grow as far as making sure that we have the right information we partner with our processing companies Jack Henry and associates and so they do a fantastic job of having a pathway for us to get to our information securely safely as well so with our connectivity points between in a calm and Jack Henry that is very tightly controlled. We manage it with monitor it. We reporting we have security protocols that are in place between all of us to ensure that is safe for our customers. Massoni went to Jack Henry Do. Where did they come into this? Yeah Sure Jack. Henry is the company that houses our customer information as a whole and so they have an open banking platform that we're able to connect to and be able to partner with the fantasy like the end of the world to be able to safely securely have access to their customer account information you can anonymous data and Sharon Saddam. Okay right so there's a way to share it without revealing the details of the people. Are I in this talk about the voice banking how it's being used and I saw one example on your website believe about bank independent Kuzma? Who's using the Alexa skill right now? It's eighty nine years old. That's fantastic Zurich. Tell us about that. And the the interest made on his or her life. Sure after we went live with this we were live several lines and we really wanted to see who was using and honestly we knew because this is new technology. We weren't expecting a hockey stick type of acceptance and usage of this tool out of the gate and so it has been a slow growth and kind of leveling but again we wanted to be out there early and this is exactly why because you know. The mission of our institution is to make a positive difference in people's lives and this is a prime example. Where we've done that. So as we begin to look one of our most active users we reached out to Kim specifically into. Can you tell us why you're using it? And the first words out of his mouth. Were you changed my life. And which can you explain that in so this gentleman was eighty nine years old? He had macular degeneration so from his perspective. He couldn't really manages finances. Just because of the vision issues vision issue. And so now he's like you now have control of my personal finances again by doing voice banking and he can control that here. What's going on? What's going on manages money in the way that he wants to be able to manage his
Trump rule could lead to big Medicaid cuts, governors warn
"Tell folks what has happened in terms of Medicaid in particular. I guess let's start way the way you did. What are the proposed cuts to Medicare that the trump administration the station has been talking about the proposed cuts to Medicare You know I think it started with their rollout of increased privatization of Medicare with increasing Medicare advantage. uh-huh Plans Kober last year in the lakes and Florida Trump you know reported in Vanity Fair that he said it would be fun. Second Term Project to cut Medicare and then in a couple of weeks ago now in Davos Switzerland he was talking. NCNB CNBC and he said Yesterday the fact that would be on the table cutting cutting Medicare in those social security and he said that would be the easiest thing to do very strange choice of words. So that's kind of the Medicare and that's what I started with. That's why I was in Des Moines that day with the committee to protect Medicare talking about these possible Medicare cuts with you know doctors from Iowa that join me for a press conference One Press When one member of the press showed up at that press conference now you know a little bit more of the presses is listening to the line that we're calling out at my committee about these proposed cuts it's And then you know because of the news of the day. Last Thursday was Davis encounter occurred in that was the day that Seema Verma the cms administrator for trump mm rolled out these Block grant Waiver proposal. That you know everyone I can see. That is talking about this. In an honest this way tells us this will cut folks from Medicaid. Okay and so tell us. CMS The centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services when they roll out this proposal are they actually just basically introducing. They're they're basically announcing that you can you as a state Can apply for a waiver. Is that right right. Apply for a waiver. Currently Medicaid is funded by the federal government on a kind of a per person per need basis. So you know. For instance when there's a recession and more people lose jobs and more people qualify for Medicaid. The federal share of spending on healthcare for those folks will go up because of course they need that you know people with diabetes if they have a job or they lose their jobs to no fault of their own still. Have they still need three hundred dollars a month insulin slim so with block grant States could say listen Why don't you just give us a lump sum of money? And then let us in the where he used was innovate let us innovate. Ah figure out how to cover anyone cover everyone but you know if the needs go up in our state. We still get that that pot of money that you're giving us it doesn't change and yet our needs go up so more people lose out the other thing they can do is choose to cut certain services they can you know cut certain drugs that are that are. Currently they covered up a prescription drug benefit under Medicaid. So I mean I mean it is just cut. There's no way around it. And there's no way that pence didn't understand that Seema. Burma used to be his Medicaid Administrator in the state of Indiana when he was governor there so this has been a conservative dream for for ages decades thirty years. They've been trying Graham. They've been trying to block grant and and so. There's there's like you say there's multiple problems that come with the block. Granting one is that it does not act as that economic stabiliser in other words doesn't doesn't Basically expand as the the need gets greater in crises. It also does not a increase along with the cost of medicine and And like you say the states can get sort of clever because the federal government has basically said I mean this is the difference between just sort of you know me me giving ten bucks to my kid and saying you know do whatever you want with it as opposed to making sure that she spends it on you know not on on junk food or whatever it is and and she can then go out and basically spend five bucks on the. I want to keep this metaphor too much but the idea is that they can use this money in other ways that I really don't have anything to do with providing health insurance for people right and my governor is Governor Gretchen. Whitmer who gave you know. I thought an amazing response to the state of the Union last night and I was there and we talked beforehand. And she's she helped. Uh sure in expanded Medicaid under the affordable care act when she was the minority leader of the State Senate here in Michigan and got a Republican governor to expand Medicaid. And we've had you know. Nearly three three quarters of million folks in Michigan Benefit from that Their study I think Carter. Kaiser family reported recently specifically Michigan showing the economic economic benefits of expanded Medicaid. The fear was that the federal government was going to give them a hundred percent in the first year and then scaled back to I think ninety percent of eventually by next year and the reality is even though the federal share has scaled back because people are healthier because they can afford treating their chronic illnesses. They can work more they. The actual tax base has increased. I think thirty thousand jobs in Michigan created directly resulted expanded Medicaid. So I you know this is. It just doesn't make sense to me that they try and and I think that's why he dodged the question and tried to revert back to things he did. And and then eventually just said agree to disagree because He knows what it is they. They held him what it is and they know if they say what it is. People won't like it you know. It's an election year. They're trying to get reelected so they just say whatever they want they lie will and state of the Union almost solely healthcare allies again about every other aspect of healthcare. And you know I think they just say what they want they get away with it. He just wasn't expecting to meet up with a guy in tyner who you know. I mean again. I don't know this issue like a policy. Wonk I mean I just I have a biology degree in a medical degree and I work clinically as a doc but I read you know and I and I try to learn as much as I can and so you know with my limited understanding of these policies he just. He wasn't ready for that one briefed them known gave them talking points. And I think that's. That's that's what we saw unfold. Yeah he did look like a deer in the headlights and we did try to dance around it quite a bit. You were pretty easy. Road brought in on them pretty quickly I think as he tried to sort of pretend like he didn't understand what you said the first thing. It just didn't that first exchange where you said. You're going to get cuts and Medicaid. 'cause I don't think we're GONNA do cuts in Medicare and so we'll give us. I mean So you know firsthand. The implications of this expanded Medicaid and and and I WANNA get into that as just your experiences as as an emergency doctor but I also get the sense. You're on this You're you're you're you're executive director of this committee you're in Iowa so you're aware at at least some of the you know the broader politics involved in this. Where would you anticipate what states or at least you know if not specific ones than the profile of the states eight? That are going to be applying for this waiver. I mean presumably the thirteen states. Now that did not expand Medicaid under the affordable. Care Act. I would imagine would be a prime targets or prime applicants to get this waiver. Because they're going to continue you. Say we're going to expand medicaid. They certainly are interested in dismantling it as much as they can right. I think that and I think you know anywhere that there is a Republican And I guess I have to. I don't know the nuances of the directive if it's if it's an executive decision at the state level or if it requires you know something passing through their houses so we have enough house majority Republican state legislatures plus governorships. In this country that I I mean I think that would be the profile. You know certainly because those will be the places where you know folks are more likely to be in charge that share vice president pence views on you know on Medicaid in general in a and and whether or not we should be helping out poor people when it comes to healthcare That that is that's the fear now. And why should we in Michigan you you know. Why should we in Michigan? Have a different set of. I mean the whole healthcare system. So Patchwork in Hodgepodge if you WANNA call it a system a series of systems. But it's so patrick work anyways I mean I guess why should this be any different. Let's let certain states do one thing and others do the other. And if you just happen to be born in Michigan versus Alabama. Well you know good on you right Well there's so much in our society today that's determined that way it's all just a coin toss and met. I guess maybe a bunch of coins get tossed in the air. What now? There's a vote tomorrow in the house. I Don I imagine you're familiar with it. And what the what the vote is is it's under the The CRA which has been used in the past to see the Congressional Review Act. It's been used in the past undo executive the actions that have been done within a certain timeframe and the Republicans did this with a bunch of executive actions by Obama and then once they do that once they pass that to reinstitute any type of rule like that Congress has to has to authorize it with a two thirds vote right so this is like this is a this is a real this is a sledgehammer as it were and they're going to. They're going to vote on this in the house and they will probably pass yes it which would not allow the president to block grant but then it goes to the Senate and the Republicans are sure to shoot it down. How do you think this plays as has a An issue in the fall when you have a half dozen or so Republican senators running in sort of purple states on their refuse their essential like voting to allow for cuts and Medicaid right. Yeah and I and I kind of anxious to see what folks looks like Like Collins I mean she seems the only one in the purple state that I think might make along with this I think you know tell us and and MC sally the and who is a gardener I think is already toast You know maybe Joni Ernst I don't know Yeah I mean I think at least I mean the thing is having having gone record. I mean that's That's I think that's all that's what we're trying to do as a committee. I mean what we're what we're rolling out over. The next. Several months is is an accountability campaign.
Lennar Stock Jumps as Pivot to Low-Price Homes Pays Off and Boeing Stock Loses More Support Over the 737 MAX
"Got two very different announcements from the same company. We have a group of economists to consider. But we're going to start today with housing Lanar the number two homebuilder in the US reported fourth-quarter results profit and revenue both came in higher-than-expected Lanar also bumped up their guidance for the number of homes. It expects to deliver in two thousand twenty. This is a really good way to end the fiscal year. It's a boomer of story. They we're supposed to turn they. They were supposed to report expected report about six point. Five billion in revenue and they came in at about seven billion which. That's a lot more. I mean for housing. That's a pretty predictable industry so for them to come in that much higher some of it has to do with the fact that you know interest rates have remained remained so low and people are the housing market has done really well but lenore made a great choice a couple years ago. And it's a really interesting study study in you know in in corporate governance where they kind of leaned into the trend of people renting instead of buying. You know what we're going to go back into low priced and we used to call starter homes. We're going to make that a core of our business and not too many other homebuilders. I did that. And it's paying off in a huge way so shares of Lenora up about three percent this morning. You you look at this strong quarter bumping up the guidance for for twenty twenty I felt like the stock should have been up a little bit more but it had a pretty good run over the past twelve months. It's had an okay run. I mean it's trading get a pe of less than ten even after the run-up and one thing that is definitely true about homebuilders is that sometimes low peas are or not necessarily a signpost that the that the stock is undervalued because because it's such a cyclical industry. And I don't know I. I don't know that people still trust that. Interest rates are going to remain. Low inflation is going to remain. Jack I think people are still a little oh bit shell shocked from what happened a decade ago in this industry. But it's a well run company. I'm and and we In other areas have you know have have looked at this trend of low cost housing and low priced housing stock as well we. We've recommended a company called legacy housing which is very similar. You know has a very similar strategy. So yeah it was a great quarter and the companies You know the company's running on all cylinders but it yet but you're right. The stock didn't seem mm to react in a way that you might expect Boeing shares down a bit this morning in the wake of the crash of Ukraine International Airlines flight. Seven fifty two minutes after taking off in Tehran. The seven thirty seven crash killing all one hundred seventy six people on board of the terrible tragedy the from the business standpoint of a new crisis. Well she's GonNa say you know. This is not a seven thirty seven Max. Because they're all grounded. This is an older model. The seven thirty thirty seven eight hundred but to your point this is yet another thing for For Boeing to respond to. Yeah so the grounding of the seven thirty-seven Max and how Boeing handled that entire situation As cost them about nine billion dollars in revenue so far they were selling about one point. Five a billion dollars in the 737 Max per month and it costs Dennis Muilenburg the former. CEO His job. The seven thirty seven eight hundred is a different beast. According to air safe which is an organization that tracks airline safety you know. So it's very well named organization seven thirty seven eight hundred among the world's safest planes So we don't know as we're recording this what has happened with the flight The Iranian government came out immediately and said that it was an engine. Malfunction The Ukrainian embassy in Tehran came out very quickly. Cleon said that it was not terrorism and then they pulled that report the Ukrainians The governments of France Germany and Netherlands or have have restricted their planes from flying in Iranian airspace as a result the crash. So we don't know it's it's it's it's you know obviously Veasley. My first thought goes out to those affected. Because you know anytime you see something like this. It's it's gut wrenching but there are you know there are implications for for you. Know for for Boeing as well and they're neat new. CEO's going to you know is going to have to address it. When you look at Boeing Stock Doc which is close to a two year low? I don't know there's I feel like they're still so many questions that it's not even something I wanna want to put on my watch list. Even though I completely understand that a reasonable outcome for this business and therefore for this stock is that twenty twenty years the year all of these issues get resolved The the Max's get back online order star bumping up and in the next five years. This is a stock. That's up fifty to seventy. I hope it doesn't sound too cra- crass to say that passenger deaths are apart of the business of making airliners. I mean that's just airplanes. Do something that is bending the laws of physics and occasionally physics wins But given what happened with seven thirty seven Max. They have billions of dollars in potential liability in suits from you know from from from passengers because it does seem like and I'm not making a legal judgment here that there's a case to be made that there was malfeasance or misfeasance or something of that nature. On the part of Boeing. Boeing is still the one half of a duopoly and in the long term. I think that had you know I. I think that the stock is probably a pretty good bargain where it is here but there are going to be plenty of of questions in the near

I can't wait for this episode because there's some really cool stuff happening and I'm just excited and it is not necessarily revolving around trump which is fun so it's a nice change of pace. I think yeah I think this is a this is a trump free episode. IV Mostly I mean you know the universe will never be trump a free but forever by the way even history will always have trumpeted like we can't. We're stuck with US forever unless we can figure out like a new time line. Are we able to branch off like a like a back to the future to scenario areo reverse log as long as we're doing that plug for I think it's episode eighty the most recent episode of philosophers in space where UN and Our good buddy Aaron do that A primer what's at primer. Yeah I WANNA go see that now like you should watch it. It's a it's a super low budget but like you know every once in a while if you have a good enough idea and you don't try to make some terrible like Styrofoam Cardboard board monsters or something. You can make a really good low budget movie and It's a good. It's a good movie I it's it's interesting it's it's not like anything else. It's a little old by now but yeah primer and it's short to watch. I'm excited. I'm excited so anyway. That was I thought it was really fun. Episode of Of a the philosophers in space. I'm they're all good episodes and everyone should be subscribed and listening but Yeah so as long as we're talking time travel. I thought I'd like your other show all right. Well I appreciate that and let's talk not time travel. Let's talk Bill Bar and his nonsense for for a second before we get to our main segments. Yeah A lot. A lot of folks have been asking me to sort of weigh in on Bars recent speech at Notre Dame in which you know he blamed secularist for the eventual heat death of the universe. And I like look you. You don't need me to tell you that the speech is awful and and terrible and bill bar has turned into a monster. I I can't tell. I mean you know the the some of the recurring questions are you know. Does he actually believe this Christian Dominion is stuff or is this just you know where his bread is buttered. Now that you know he's become trump's biggest loyalist. You know that that that's above my pay grade man uh-huh I may do a fisk thing of everything that's wrong with this speech Maybe we'll do it on Tuesday deep dive. Maybe we'll do it as a Patriot in A bonus It's it's bad and it's you know it's unconscionable that the attorney general would Deliver a speech like this. y'All we all know that already so It it's I just wanted to say because when we get a topic that a lot of people right in about By I typically want to at least say yes I've I've seen in her diary mills and I share your outrage all right well we may Look forward to that at a later. Date but now for the For the actual segments. Today we're going to talk about a potential Congressional Review Act for the Supreme Court interested to hear that would be constitutional institutional and then is Warren's wealth tax constitutional and you know. I talked a little bit about that on my show. But you know only because I didn't want to take any more of your time time with very busy proceedings. I read a little bit about that and and From what I can see people pretty divided on it In their plausible readings thinks either way. So I think it'll be a great time to get Andrews Opinion on that and then finally. We've got an interesting listener. Question in the wildcard hard segment which is the one that is whether or not Andrew left enough time for four points which I like. It's cool wildcard. Second Wildcard clown horns off okay and so I don't even like to introduce what it is because you may not hit arts. Let's go to our first segment.
Gun owners want smart guns on the market but dont want to buy them
"This marketplace podcast is brought to you by ultimate software dedicated to putting people first with innovative solutions for HR payroll and talent management learn more at ultimatesoftware dot com ultimate software people first and by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation John Kelly founder and CEO at airspace experienced technology gee says in Michigan Revolution is in the air find out what planet earth is doing to help businesses make that possible at planet m dot com. That's P. L. A. N. E. T. M. Dot com eighty percent of gun. Owners thinks smart guns should be on the market but they don't want to buy them from American public public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm molly would this week. Democratic presidential candidates are talking about the problem of gun violence but is there a technology solution that can make guns safer for decades gun manufacturers and even some startups have tried to figure out how to create a smart gun one that could only be fired by the guns owner owner and could be activated by fingerprints or a radio signal sent from the weapon to say a wristband gun researchers call these personalized guns but so far the tech hasn't gone anywhere. CASSANDRA prophecy is deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and research. I asked her what the barriers are. So there are two main concerns. I think that are driving down the potential market for personalized gums and those are cost and concerns about the technology technology and I think one of the challenges were trying to way is that over the last several decades we've had changes in the reasons. People people own firearms forty years ago. The ownership was predominantly for hunting. Now the predominant reason for gun ownership is self defense against other people and if you're concerned about having a firearm to defend yourself in that kind of situation than making sure the technology would work when you want to be able to use use it could be a significant issue when you look at the overall numbers of gun deaths how many of those could potentially be prevented by personalized guns. It's really when we think about the benefits of what types of injuries by fire him could be prevented with personalized guns. We're looking mostly at injuries among individuals who wouldn't be able to purchase firearms so teen suicide by firearm unintentional injuries unintentional deaths by firearm among children and then also the potential benefit to drive down homicide by reducing the ability to use a firearm that is personalized if it was stolen but when you look at the burden of firearm deaths and the potential benefit it's hard to make a really strong case that having personalized sliced guns is really going to drastically drive down our burden of gun violence in this country. So where would you like to see investment in research go I. I think that we could do a lot more to understand. Who's firearms are being used in suicide? Even though fire suicide is the leading cause of firearm mm death we have very little information on where those guns come from when they were acquired how they were stored in the home and I think that we could do a lot to to improve our ability to respond to and prevent suicide if we could get some better data to understand some of these precipitating factors. CASSANDRA prophecy is deputy director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and research so far no smart gun has been sold at a gun shop anywhere in America and as to that question of cost CRA Fosse told us smart guns would potentially cost as much as a thousand dollars more than the dumb ones and now for some related links. There's a fascinating story in Bloomberg BusinessWeek from earlier this year about the long history history of attempts to create so-called smart or personalized guns and it includes this whole tale about a two thousand to law from New Jersey that said that his students sooner smart guns were sold anywhere in the United States then New Jersey's gun retailers could only sell smart guns within three years so oh no more dumb guns in New Jersey that of course caused an NRA freak out and death threats against a Maryland retailer who did want to sell personalized guns in two thousand fourteenth. That's at the entire effort back even more and over the years. No one has flight created a smart gun where the tech works perfectly in all situations. The Bloomberg story also includes a lot of details about how the tech industry has both tried to find an fund smart gun startups but also shied away from gun startups for fear that could lead to increased gun ownership and then of course there's the politics which is where we are going to end this podcast you can find the Bloomberg Bloomberg story on our website Marketplace Tech Dot Org.

I don't wanna make too big of a deal about my issue because Christians in the Middle East or getting blown up. That's true. But that's also a false sense of humility. God has given you has put on your plate what he is put on your plate, so deal with it, don't that's a false sense of humility to ignore your own issues by saying somebody else's got issues bigger than mine. Yes, see we, oh, we think the pride that's easy to spot is I'm better than everybody else. Okay. The pride that's not so easy to is the. I'm so woke. The, you know that. I need to keep showing you how aware and woke I am of other suffering so that you will then recognize I have a ride in my knowledge of of of of the world. Even when people have been judged in the past still said that he Israelites, I get married. Yeah, you're you're, you're prisoners your slaves. In the meantime, have children. Live life. So this idea that there's a standard that we need to show God. That. We can meet a standard. We artificially create is another way. Of rejecting God standard. Correct. Taking away or adding to God's standard is arrogance either one. Is prideful the us Todd Stor, either one, and I love this term in scripture. Reconciled. That means not some of the things that means all of the things. Must must ultimately come to terms. What the Lord of Evan. Yes, every knee will bow. Every tongue will confess the great reform theologian, Abraham Kuyper. There is not a square foot of this, his creation or which Christ is not claim mine. That's kind of what you're saying. Some of your translations may use terms like redemption more often than reconciliation that were, what does it mean to redeem? Well, when you use a coupon redeem this at your local grocer, I think a lot of go there and they just took this off the price and gave it to us for less than. The manufacturer nother way of saying the creator. Purchased that portion of the price on your behalf that you don't have to pay? That's what it means tone. Yes, Yep. Yep. And just as in in in the coupon example, the manufacturer is the one you pay the debt you owe, but then also pays the debt on your behalf that you also he's on both sides of the equation. That's what Paul's describing here you owe a debt to Christ to God for your sins. He will judge you for them. The good news is if you recognize that he will judge you for them, truly then he will gladly and already has a tone for them at the exact same time for further reading on this. This is what CS Lewis does. Excellent. When he talks about the perfect penitent. Yeah, yeah. It's just fifteen years into this. It'll be fifteen years on September eighteenth. Fifteen years into this walk and what I just explained to you guys. I, I struggled throughout my mind around. You always will just who are, who am I that you would be mindful of me as David says in the psalms, I just am. It's mind boggling. God would do this for me. That's not confusion, though. That's clarity. That's where you need to live point. That's a good point because that notion comes from the recognition of how broken I am right? You remember those moments that you are a sinner. It's so important Christianity. These days has been turned into something that fundamentally does not believe in sin. That's insane. Nobody on this earth, and I'm talking about the guy who got buck naked in the middle of the planet fitness store. Nobody is more insane than the Christian who does not believe in sin that is utter nonsense and blasphemy. Go ahead well on kind of the same token long on the long along the lines of what we've been talking about over the last few minutes, I would submit. I kinda submitted a definition for joy. I think it was last episode. Here's a definition for true humility. True humility is a right view of one's self in light of who you are and what Christ has done for you. Well said, well, this is that's been said in many ways and movie. I know you say, I know things there is a God and I am not him. That's what Aaron is talking about..

"Simply a your eight by ten, your head shot on one side, and then you can scribble note or you can stick and paste the dress label. Although I'm not crazy about peel and stick address labels. I think the human touch is always nice thing. Also, you can say, thank you to an audition that you might have had. You might also want to promote a show that you're in. Whether it's a showcase, maybe you've just signed up for a really cool class that you want other people in the industry to know about. That's what the postcard is for just drop it into the mailbox. Now, the thing of it is honestly when I get and I post cards every day. The thing to understand is that it's just kind of a nice way to stay in touch. And that's the way I view them when I received them, but I don't hang onto them. I don't catalogue them. I just look at him. I look at the picture if I don't quite remember who you are. I make that association on glad there were. Working and then I tossed the cart. That's all you should expect from a postcard thinking that the postcard is going to suddenly and dramatically increase. Your additions is really a fool's errand, I think. But again, it's nice professional tool. It keeps me abreast of what your up to without invading my time or my hard drive. If you know what I mean. So that's a postcard. Obviously, we've talked about this. You need to have a eight by ten CRA, fashionable headshot. Please go back onto the website casting, actors cast and click on the headshot. Show that episode I think is chalked full of some really good ideas and things to consider even before you get your first headshot. But if you're considering getting a new one, then maybe that would be a really good podcast for you to get. By the way the websites changed just a little bit of including now all of the pr-. Previous episodes on the separate page, and I'm going to kind of keep the current ones that are up to date on the very first landing page. So you'll see another another icon on the website. So just click through and you'll see all of the previous episodes of casting actors cast. I think that's kind of a great way to to index it for you, catalog it and not, you know waste a lot of screen space or your time and secretly important so that your headshot next on the essential business materials to consider is of course your resume that get stapled onto the back of your head shot. There is a podcast regarding resumes, so I don't wanna take up valuable time here in your time. But again, if this is something that's relatively new for you, please please. Please listen to the podcast about resumes know that they are eight by ten and size, and you have to think about your resume as a one page layout about you. The next business material is what I kind of have a general term for, but there are a lot of elements to it and that's just general stationary. And that includes a CD if you have it of your voice over work or video work, you can have video envelopes. But more importantly, I'm talking about stationary that has your name on it. Now it's not really that unusual for in this day and age to take your brand, whatever your brand is and will be doing podcast about brand. And if you haven't had a really good idea about what that is stay tuned, because we're going to be addressing your brand what your brand is, but it's not unusual for you to consider having a logo either that or your name in a really interesting font, something that represents your personality. So the way you present yourself really is important. In terms of all of those marketing materials that you should consider using. So like for example, when you get your head shot, what font do you use when you slug your name? At the bottom of the page of the head of the photograph say that can really be an effective way of expressing a little element of your personality. In the same way, stationary.
