"But yeah what listeners can do is to educate themselves more way to do that is to go to our website. It is jam packed full of information about trafficking both labor trafficking and sex trafficking. They can get involved by joining us on social media So our website is cast. La dot org. That's jam packed full of information about trafficking so the first step is to educate yourselves even further. Always give -education because let me just the powerpoint that you sent to me. Something that talks about a victims may not appear to want help. That was so informed for me and then some of the just the language surrounding this of what words we should be using and not using so and that was just one little powerpoint that you sent to me so i can't imagine how somebody could just engulf themselves in your website to really truly become educated and so our powerpoint and the information and it is definitely in our website and then we are very active. We've got a very active outreach and policy program that is not just local to los angeles by a national scale and so people can join us on social media if they want to take action and help us. They can call their legislators when we have an active bill in place. Were always working on either some type of legislation that would truly impact the lives of survivors of traveling game and prevention a lot of the laws that we pass are really towards prevention ending human trafficking in the first place. And then i would say to that you know. Organizations light cast and others who are serving survivors of trafficking. They need resources particularly if they're providing comprehensive care so i would challenge our listeners today to find organization that isn't only a wariness but really working grassroots and providing that long term care. That could be as simple as asking that question i mean. How long do you serve victims of trafficking. And how long do you serve them. And if it's more than a year that tells you that it's comprehensive care and i would really encourage people to support those organizations financially because the government resources keep getting scaled back more and more every year and we simply need private resources to be able to support that long term care but at the end of the day we know firsthand. That is what works. That's what works to get survivors back on their feet against abandoned does not but weaken visit to exactly a shelter. That's right yeah and it also provides for survivors impacting. All of this amazing social change. That's happening all over the country and frankly all over the world today like any worthy cause or heartbreak situation. You need money. That's that is true. So that's that's an easy thing will not an easy thing for some people. It is easy. Some people ten dollars is a lot but that absolutely makes the difference. Really does i mean that's exactly what we're looking but also the resources so you're seeing that people who could provide resources. I bought for pro bono legal services or problem that ended up for cast too soon. Were providing full scholarships to attend our schools exactly two survivors of trafficking. Whatever your industry is..

"I don't even think we're reaching you know as many victims of that there are in los angeles alone. What we know. Is that when we do outreach in specific industries and just general outrage we definitely see an increase in calls to our hotline. When we train a church a temple we get referrals from them so it really is a matter of training and making people aware that this can happen in the united states it is happening in our own neighborhoods and when we do that we actually get direct referrals on real cases. I want to ask you about that. I'm gonna take you all over the place. Refreshing sure can just show this another story of a somebody that you have served a survivor. Maybe perhaps Survivor of sex trafficking and by the way people think that this all trafficking in slaves come from foreign countries and i've heard statistics that as many as a hundred thousand. Young kids are trafficked every single year. And they stay here in the us that the number one perpetrators or violators of us. Kids are us citizens correct. That is absolutely correct. So we don't know the full number but we know through our partner organizations that work on Issues of missing and exploited children at national organization that about one hundred thousand kids are at risk for trafficking. But we don't yet know the scale of it actually happening. But i can tell you firsthand. We see these cases every day where you ask for an example We had a case recently of a young woman at the time she was. I think seventeen and sh- like many of our cases. Her home life was not good. She was actually from another state close to the west so she left the bad situation which could have been abusive or who knows what thinking deaf. The streets are are safer and better. Actually she didn't go to the streets at first..

"She stated our shelter actually for just under two believers told the real quickly what happened that she finally somebody did address what was going on. Fbi showed up and yeah so. Alice was actually in slaved in early in dubai so she was trafficked in to dubai. I she's originally from kenya and then from dubai. The family moved here. They had dual citizenship out to the l. a. area moved to west los angeles in one of the most affluent communities there and she was forced to basically work around the clock. She wasn't allowed to sleep very much because she had to be quote unquote on call for the child she was taken care of and interestingly enough she had this amazing relationship with the small child and when she escaped the child was distraught and crying. And i mean. I think that's important to know that for people who ask the question. Why don't they leave. Oftentimes it's out of a loyalty to the children that they're taking care of like. How sad is that that they know. They're being treated wrongly and badly but because they care so much for the traffickers child or children they stay because they feel responsible. That really hits my heart. 'cause i'm dislike like what's happening is this deep exploitation really really good people people you want to live in your community. And so you know with alice. She was enslaved in this penthouse with. I mean just beautiful surroundings and yet. She wasn't to talk with her family. She didn't have access to her passport. That's one of the key things. Traffickers do is confiscate all of their legal documents including for us citizens to our traffic by the way they'll take their identification and for me. It's very symbolic right. It's like when you take someone's identification away. You are truly taking away their identity right. I own you. And so with. Alice in this penthouse. She was practically starved to death when she arrived at the shelter she was skin and bones. I mean i actually remember crying on my way home after meeting her at the shelter because it was like she had marks on her face from lack of nutrition. She was so skinny when it just it was so sad and the truth. She didn't have a whole lot of life in her at that time. And which is very different as you saw from who she is today. How long has she been a slave to this family in this case. Gosh don't quote me on this because we've handle a lot of cases but for alice. I believe that she was enslaved for a total of two and a half years. Total and it ranges. I mean we've had cases where they've been enslaved for you know a couple of months to twenty five years. I mean it really is a big range depending on the opportunity to liberate them right and so analysis case for liberation. She actually match with another nanny. So this family just had another baby and their policy was that they had one nanny for each child and so they were here and the us and so they brought in a nanny who was an american citizen through a nanny service and so she came in and of course she kinda got vibe because all the workers seem to be kind of making eye contact and nervous and so when she was alone with alice and they actually took the kids to a movie at a movie theater..

"Let's say about gosh. what was it. Maybe fifteen years ago trafficking wasn't really even talked about in terms of statistics. And then what happened is it became the third largest criminal enterprise but now today in two thousand fifteen it's now tied with arms trade and so that tells us that this is a growing criminal enterprise where criminals can easily make a profit off the backs of human beings. I mean when you think about it. Human beings can be recycled over and over again. Right they can be sold to one gang. And then to another trafficker. I mean they can be recycled whereas when you use drugs or arms. They can't so easily be recycled in that way. so it's very profitable for traffickers to get into this business. How many slaves or their world boy there are. I mean statistics. Range all over the place. But i think we can safely say that there is at least twenty seven million slaves living in the world today at least living in slavelike conditions that includes sex trafficking as well as labor trafficking and that from brothels in bangkok thailand to children being forced to work in the brick industry in india to here locally where people are trafficked into the agricultural sector so trafficking is very broad definition of what is known as modern slavery people who are forced in some way therefore either through physical four or fraud or some type of coercion even sometimes psychological coercion to stay in a situation where they do not have the freedom to leave and that's usually done by the traffickers threatening them in their lives if they try a laws and key especially to the young women and moms that we serve. That's what they use they with the young girls they'll use their moms or sometimes their grandmothers. Whoever they're close to they'll use that to control them saying if you try to escape this happened just in one of our cases. This young girl was fifteen. Try to escape. We will kill your grandmother in mexico. We know where she lives. It's this address so no fifteen year old is going to try to escape when grandma practically raised her not was like her grandma was the love of her life and they knew it and they used it against her and likewise for the young moms and sometimes dads that we serve. They'll say look. We know your kids are living with your parents back home and if you try anything funny we will kill them. Let me tell you and so these threats go a long way to further. Control the victims. Who are already held captive. And i think what's important for new people who are new to this issue you know. In the media they tend to portray victims of trafficking has been chained to bed sore being locked in a room and certainly we have had those types of cases. I don't want to say that doesn't happen. It does but the majority of our cases are such where survivors or victims at the time. Are you know walking the kids to school each day. The children of the traffickers. Or they're doing the shopping for the family. So out of the house away from their captors and people listening to this thinking water on the ryan exactly..

"If people can't access it right and so the survivors of the national survivor network have really done a great job in meeting with these high level officials. And saying let me help you. I mean this is what needs to happen if you truly want to make a difference and the great thing about it is that these agencies are listening. They are taking meetings with my policy. Staff cast and survivors. So it's pretty exciting time for them and for the movement. I wanna take a couple of places here for all. Let me just read this. So prior to joining cast. You're the director of the rape prevention resource center of the california coalition against sexual assault in two thousand and five k. Was recognized as a change maker. Dream maker wow alongside senator. Hillary rodham clinton by the women's foundation of california. You hold a bachelor's degree in women's studies. And you're a senior fellow at marshall. School of of business from usc most people who come into some type of career to have a personal story. There was something that happened to you or that you witnessed that you experienced. That drew you to this. And by the way knowing that i was going to have this interview with you today. I did a little research. Like i need to see a documentary so i research and i found documentary k. It took me three days to watch it because i was so bothered. Yeah yeah like. I could sit there like i could take it in bites pieces but then i had to leave. I had leave the room. Because i was just so impacted by it was just so hard to watch and to witness it to listen to and this is what you're now dealing with every single day but there was an original story correct absolutely and i never told me but i just guessing most people. They are advocates for breast cancer. Because it hit their families. So so. what's your story. Well when i was seven years old My sister was killed and she was sixteen at the time. And not only did it. Impact me As a seven year old it changed the course of my family right. The family dynamics changed and my whole life. I really longed for love and support that you can only get from a sister and i really believe that. That's what started me on this long journey searching for sisterhood because it really informed my teenage years la certainly my time at university and then of course my career. My family always jokes today about they knew i was going to be fighting for women and girls rights early on. I think they say as young as eleven. I was showing signs. And you know. I think that that's what it was. I was really at heart advocate because so often women and girls are marginalized in a lot of different industries and movements and different landscapes. And i could see that even as a seven or eight year old mad madonna song about about. I have to kind of be less than i can't speak my voice so i don't offend. The boys offend the men does myself down in order to and i did feel that way a lot until i just got sick of it and i decided that i wasn't going to tone myself down. And i knew intuitively that the norm was going to change in the future..

"Discussed. But i was only one of two service providers present so not even. They'd hadn't even invited people who actually had spoken to a survivor. Before so i should say to that. There were only two women in the room as well. Mostly a room of men who were deciding about policy for survivors. Who had not even been consulted. And so when. I came back to los angeles. I talked with my staff and said you know we. Actually there's a real gap here in the movement. Then i should say that the people around the room. They weren't doing it intentionally. They weren't not listening intentionally. they just didn't know how and they didn't have someone telling them that they could. And so we went to work and developed a very unique program which started as the survivor advisory caucus which local los angeles because. That's where the survivors we serve reside and it's grown since then we've scaled it nationally. So now the national survivor network and we're taking steps this year and next to scale it even more globally so that we can connect survivors of trafficking all over the world to be informing these important policy decisions at all levels local and international. So yeah when i returned from. Dc los angeles. My staff was really excited. And certainly the survivors that we serve Ones who've graduated those were the first people we consulted with about this program. They thought it was a great idea to and it started small. I remember at the first meeting. Only three survivors showed up. And i know my staff was little bit concerned that maybe this wasn't a good idea after all but we stuck with it and you know look where we are now where it's over. One hundred and forty survivors representing several different countries including the united states because survivors are not only from other countries. This is also happening right here. In the united states where mostly american girls but also boys are trafficked in both sex trafficking and labor trafficking. And so they're a big part of the national survivor network as well..

"I actually really enjoyed it. Because it's the first time i didn't have to actually prepare a speech all i had to do with go there and received the award and enjoy the moment and it was secretary kerry who recognized us and gave us the actual. It was an actual metal medal of honor. And i got to do that with our board. President bush schulman and two survivors of our national survivor network. So that was incredible to be there not just with cast leadership but with two survivors who were recipients of our programs and it was amazing as an amazing day and what they have done with with their lives. Amazing say like. That's what i've learned from survivors. I mean when i was working in japan i should also point out. I also spend several years in thailand as well. So i worked in japan initially and then wanted to really address this from a prevention standpoint and so i moved to thailand and worked with these incredible ngos non governmental organizations to address trafficking from prevention and it was a big learning experience. One of the survivors. I'm at you know. Really set me straight. I think i had the idea that victims of human trafficking were broken vulnerable. People like people who wouldn't be able to stand up for themselves and boy. This young woman proved me wrong. She basically said you know. I don't need anyone from any country here and rescuing me. What i need is a leg up. I need someone to believe me that this happened. I need for someone to support me. That's all i need. And i know that i can. You know rebuild from there and so that is what framed my whole career by listening to that one survivor and that she wasn't the only one. There were several survivors. Who had the same experience. I think of you know lots of non-governmental organizations and certainly governments wanting to swoop in and rescue people instead of really listening to the community of survivors. And what they really need from us. And so i feel really privileged that i was one of the first to be able to have that listening to her. If you will. And i decided right there and then that's what i was gonna do. I was going to live my life listening to survivors and creating programs that would truly and practically like in a practical way help them. So that's what i did. And then you know fast forward. What twenty five years later because this year is actually my twenty fifth year working on this issue abroad and also here in the united states and Last april so in two thousand fourteen. We received the presidential award for leadership in combating human trafficking. Here and around the world and what an experience that was i mean. There's really not even words for it to describe. We were the first nonprofit organization to receive this award. And i really. It's all because of the survivors. We serve and the staff that i have the privilege of working with because they to listen to survivors. We have a culture. A a kind of an organizational culture cast that is all about being survivor. Centered which means listening and not judging and forming programs around what the real needs are for the men and the women and the children who are trafficked. I have a feeling that that probably happens. In lots of different scenarios where those who the programs are designed for are really considered so people are behind closed doors creating all this is going to be great for them when really in reality because they're not listening to the victims and the survivors. It's just a waste of time and a waste of money. Yeah exactly it's like we know best and you know it's interesting. When i took the job at cast which was in two thousand and three i went to washington. Dc for my very first. You know dc for me on behalf of cast. And i was really surprised that not only were. There are no survivors in the room..

"Which is going to be quite the education that all of us need to receive the whole planet needs to listen to this message simply because i think it's a hard topic for people to listen to. I think it's one of those things that people want to pretend does not exist. And that is the whole idea of slavery and trafficking. And i've tried to educate myself or the last several years and in the process of educating myself have looked up to be experts and gotten to know these people and the woman that i'm sitting with right now truly truly is such a wonderful representative this issue and someone who is on the forefront of making a difference not to mention the fact that if you saw her she'd be a model she'd be top in the salon.

Five years of experience leading innovative anti trafficking initiatives in the united states and abroad joining the coalition to abolish slavery and trafficking which is called cast. Cas three k. Leads one of the longest running anti slavery.

I mean this goes on on you. Receive all kinds of awards the people that you work with organizations that you worked with. You have a lot of experience. Which i'm going to ask you to share with us. You lived abroad in asia for five years almost six years. Yeah that's right. So i lived initially in japan and i worked with the asian women's shelter and at that time honestly human trafficking was not on anyone's radar across the globe and so we worked on a program where they accepted survivors of trafficking in this shelter and it was a first of its kind at the time and that is where i not only learned about human trafficking directly from survivors themselves. But it's also where. I just caught this incredible passion for this issue You also recently received an award or some acknowledgement at the white house. Tell us about that. Yeah that was great. I mean i should also h was a little bit more than great..

Coronavirus Vaccine: Race for a Covid-19 Cure
"Now the race for a vaccine was part of a discussion that I moderated from our recent Bloomberg New economy form a panel. It really looked at how the world can ensure that we never ever have another catastrophe like Covad 19. That panel was with Stefan Bonsall, chief executive officer at Madonna. Regina Dugan CEO it welcome Leap, and Dr Wu Zun Yo, chief epidemiologist at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. We began by hearing from a Dernis CEO. On their vaccine. We announce that the first experiment disease or face pre study To study your 50,000 participants. So the most 95% because see, but the piece of experience more excited is the fact that off 11 equal with severe disease. They were all of those people were no on the vaccine. And so if you think about it, what does that mean? I mean that once we get the final data, we should be able to see this is confident that if you get over thing 95% chance of you know this news. And if you get is easy with my symptoms. We need not have cereal this season that we know that that's what he's been a big impact in terms off hospitalization for patient with the worst. I seen you professionally in the world's there. It will be impacted has had, but only in human life, of course, but on the mental health on the economy. We think this could be a game changer. And so what we're doing now is the thing the final data or locked up. Submitting these regret origins is there on the world.

ThoughtTrace With CEO Nick Vandivere
"Nick command of you're welcome to its great speed today. Yeah thanks peter. And it's a pleasure well Nickie where the chief executive officer of thought trace and for those who are listening. Who may be less familiar with the company thought it provides one unified platform to discover and understand what matters in your contracts and documents talk a little bit about how you bring that to life in a bit more about the company itself. Please yes early. So i i would say we describe ourselves as a document understanding company that utilizes ai to help people understand meaning an intense very complex document business problems so if you like your minds really go to to law firms legal in a vigorous nature of contracts which is which is certainly a found little use case for what we do but i think the end of the day you have business users could be asset managers. They could be people working in private equity doing your diligence. They can be folks that are looking at things like title around route. Land valuations people that work in manufacturing with large assemblies. I think like that they're professionals out. There documents professionals spend a tremendous amount of time in a lot of values that they create is centered around their ability to understand a lot of information that is bound up in documents a little dents difficult to throw in their specific and that's really the solve those problems in do it in a very very chunky way for for our customers well having spent time with people in law firms and asset managers people in private equity at some of the other examples you gave. I must say some of those. I forgive me for painting with a broad brush strokes. Some of them are late adopters in terms of technology. And i'm curious how you've obviously successfully made the case to a lot of these people who have special training and expertise in the case of law firms. They have a special degree at you. And i don't have and And made the case that this is something that's going to be a boon to them in add to their experience and benefit their customers the same time how he made that case in that help them with evolution that is that is a great question the risk of sounding heretical. A tech nations podcast. I think with those those were those late adopting users as to make make the thing that you do in the problem that you solved more about the job to be done are less about technology. So we're a company like we're company. Data scientists a professionals and subject matter experts and developers that sort of thing so we don't be wrong Very much geek out on technology that as saying but at the end of the day we've got to connect those dots for not just for companies but for the actual end users. The people that are in the software on a daily basis. We've got to connect the dots for them. In a way that makes sense to them. And a you know i think the moniker of late adopter or laggard that oftentimes get supplied. These are these people that work in certain industries is because the work they do is so highly specific. That jenner tools. Don't work right like we have to be cognizant of that in terms of how we think about solution using virtual anything for them. So it's you know. I think the key thing for us but for any company or a cio running running one of those companies is to try to look back at the solution set technology stack and do it through the eyes of the user and then and then really craft experience around that. That's that's that's our focus Works

Women have been disproportionately impacted by covid-19
"Been disproportionately impacted by the job losses during the pandemic to the point that some are referring to today's recession as a she session. Many of the pressures women already face in the work force, such as the gender pay gap barriers to advance. Men and lack of flexibility have been exacerbated. The crisis could, however, usher and new policy standards and support systems for women across industries and income levels. Here with me to talk about all this is Alexis Crib. Covic, senior partner with McKinsey and co author of Women in the Workplace. 2020 report. Welcome to the program. Alexis Crisco, Vic Chris. Covic. I'm sorry. I'm getting that right. Thank you for having me and we also have in helicopters. Litwin, clinical psychologist and founder of Latinos Think Big a network of professional women and Lumina. Modern psychotherapy practice. Welcome in helicopters. Littwin. Thank you. And Serena Khan, chief executive officer of Women's Foundation of California. Welcome to the program. Serena Con. Thanks so much, and Alexis Krukov itch. I'd like to start with you and some of what the McKinsey Workforce study told us. Why are women facing greater job loss than men? And where are we seeing the biggest impacts? Salute Lee. So the headline here is that we're facing a crossroads in corporate America today, and the reason for that is on one side this pandemic while a humanitarian crisis at its heart has created An opening for flexible work, and that's a good thing because that's the number one thing. Women have said. In the past, they need to advance more in the workplace environment. On the flip side, one in four women today is saying because of the pandemic and the context it's creating in their workplace environment and their home environment. They may need to step back or step out of the workforce. And one and four equates to two million women that would unwind years of progress of women's advancement in the workplace. And it's just something we can't afford to lose. And we're really seeing the gendered nature of work here to right Serena Khan, not only where Caretaking responsibilities end up falling when push comes to shove, but also who falls into this essential worker category and the disproportionate impact on black and brown women's who We're looking at a really layered intersectional issue here. That's exactly right. All of us are being impacted by the pandemic, but we're not all being impacted in the same way. Oh, the gendered impact of the pandemic are particularly profound for especially women of color working moms, gender non conforming folks this pandemic. Highlighting problems that we've needed to work on together to solve three the pandemic, So we know, for example in California. Freak O bed, two thirds of tipped workers, part time workers, minimum wage earners where women and primarily women of color even though California Is the wealthy of state in the nation. It's also has the highest rate of poverty and the people who are living in poverty in California are women of color and their kids. And so when we think about this pandemic, whether It's women who are the essential workers who are making up 80% of our healthcare workforce, or the retail and grocery workers. The essential workers that Are still working or on the flip side. They're the ones that have lost their jobs because the majority of us are working in the restaurant industry. Oh, our other retail industry that have lost significant Numbers of jobs, so it's a very gendered epidemic and Serena Con you've spoken about how there's no going back to normal that that normal wasn't that good to begin with, when it came to gender equity in the workforce. That's right. You know, this pandemic is shining a light on all that was wrong with Our country, our world, our state, and so you know, as hundreds of thousands of women leave the workforce to manage what is really an unmanageable amounts of caretaking remote schooling. You know, our child care costs were making up. Ah, upwards of, you know, 60 70% of the single moms income that's not sustainable and So you know, we have an opportunity here to think about what is the future that we want on. DWI can change some of those systems that we have an opportunity to really Think about care, work into value care and compensate that work fairly as we figure out howto move forward, But the pandemic has really forced us to reckon with how much care we all need, whether we're caring for our Children. For each other for ourselves for our elders on DH so we can build some new solutions for us that the women Foundation California we have believed Since our founding in 1979 that people who are closest to the problems in their communities are also closest to the solutions. And so we have innovative ideas coming out of community. Based leaders about what we can do post pandemics. I think it's important for us now, Tio You know, make sure that people are getting their basic needs met. So you know, one of the other things that we saw very early on in the pandemic is that not everybody was safer at home. That rates of domestic violence were spiking upwards of 40 to 80% and all of California 58 counties. So we and yet so as the need went up the Situation for the shelters was that they had to that They had actually left physical space because of the need to do physical distance event. Soon, though, there's a lot that Yeah, so there's just a lot that we're seeing and that we can think about solving. Yes,
FCC Chairman says he will 'clarify' tech legal shield
"I try hard to leave politics out of this podcast. Believe me. That's why been staying away from the whole story about the New York Post and just son and facebook and twitter taking steps to limit the reach of that story on their platforms because I find that a mostly political story that's only secondarily a text story plus I don't know where I fall in terms of the argument around is this facebook and twitter crossing some sort of line. On. The one hand we want them to be more editorial right and on the other hand, we don't want them to be editorial at all and on the other hand we do and I don't know it's sort of maddening. But I do find myself agreeing with the people who say if twitter and facebook limit the spread of something that's not censorship they're not taking anything down. They're not preventing something from being published from getting out there. It already has been published. It is out there. It's more that they're. Not to amplify something that is already out there, and that's I. think a fair choice like if I decide not to cover a story on this podcast, that's my choice. If I decide to try to stay away from politics on the show, that's my choice. That's not me censoring something that's me saying that's not something I choose to talk about. Quitting Parker Thompson on twitter. I have read the argument a lot in the last day that social media is the Public Square? No. The Internet is the Public Square and it is infinite. Twitter is an Arby's on the square and your inside yelling about their lack of Vegan options being literal fascism and quote. So that's the most I'll say about that if I can help it but I did want to talk about this swirling around all of the things like this in the background is the whole discussion of amending section to thirty of the Communications Decency Act the thing that shields platforms like facebook and twitter from liability over content users post on those platforms. Well coincidentally, yesterday SEC commissioner a jeep pie suddenly said that the FCC will start a rulemaking action to clarify the meaning of section two thirty and that social media doesn't have quote special immunity denied to other media outlets and quote quoting Bloomberg the announcement came hours after Senate Republicans demanded the chief executive officers of facebook and twitter explain steps. Their sites took to limit the distribution of a controversial New York Post article concerning Hunter Biden the son of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden twitter and facebook said they did it because of questions about the articles accuracy and use of hacked material end quote. Problem is pie and the FCC have no authority over section two thirty like none. Quoting, Mike, MAZANEC IN TECH DIRT PIE is wrong. Almost everything he says in his statement the FCC has no jurisdiction over Internet websites. Previous lawsuits have already held that furthermore, the FCC has jurisdiction over section two thirty, which was explicitly written to deny the FCC authority over websites. The FCC has no power to reinterpret the law. The final paragraph is the most ridiculous of all pie is correct that social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech and section two. Thirty as was written and properly regularly interpreted by dozens of court decisions. None of which the FCC has ever said a word about helps guarantee that right is not diminished through frivolous bogus and misdirected litigation. Also, the claim that the immunity is quote denied to other media outlets is straight up wrong. Any outlet is protected from liability for third party content on their websites. It's why Fox News and Breitbart can have comments on their websites. It's why things like Parlor and Gab can. Pie knows this he's just being disingenuous in terms of actual impact. All this will serve to do is row people up waste a ton of time and not actually change anything because it can't but it will create a huge mess in the meantime distracting everybody and wasting a ton of resources and quote. Actually went to underline something that Mike said there because a lot of other people have been making this point as well. If your concern is that platforms have a power to quell speech were take things down or limit reach or quote censor things if that's what you believe is happening if that's your concern, the last thing you WanNa do is monkey with section two thirty because if platforms are liable to be sued for everything that billions of people post trillions of times a day if they're suddenly opened up to lawsuits at scale, then believe me they will immediately and very aggressively take a ton of things down if they didn't they end up risking being sued out of existence. You can be unhappy with editorial decisions made by the platforms I. Often am where you can think that section two thirty is a bad thing I often do but I'm wondering if it's possible to do both simultaneously.

McDonald's sues ousted CEO, alleging employee relationships
"McDonald's has made striking new allegations against its former CEO of the company says Steve Easterbrook hid sexual relationships with employees and concealed the evidence. The fast food giant fired Easterbrook last year. Now it is suing him to get back his multi $1,000,000 severance package. NPR's Alina Selya HQ reports. What makes this case pretty remarkable is that it's been nine months since Easterbrook was fired. The reason a consensual relationship with an employee that amounted to sexting and American corporate culture typically is all about sorting these kinds of internal scandals quickly and behind closed doors. Here's Tim Hubbard, a professor at the University of Notre Dame. There's always this tendency to wanna settle it quietly and get it completely out of the media. But here we are talking about it again because now McDonald's Is suing Easterbrook, saying he covered up more inappropriate behavior. McDonald's made this unusual choice because back in November, Easterbrook left with the severance estimated at over $40 million. But in July, an anonymous tip led the company to search corporate servers and their investigators found explicit photos and videos sent from Easter. Brooks corporate account evidence of sexual relationships with three employees, including one woman for whom Easterbrook approved a stock grant worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I think that there was an expectation as they were negotiating a settlement. That the former chief executive officer be open and honest. The company says he lied to get a better exit payout and is suing to get that money back. Few companies find these kind of public battles with former executives. MacDonald says. It's already moved to block Easterbrook from selling any stock he might still have from his equity awards. I don't really see the likelihood of him returning the money without A bit of force needed. I think it gets pretty nasty Easter. Brooks legal team did not respond to NPR's enquiries, and we should note that McDonald's is among NPR's recent sponsors. Mr Brooks, Compensation for being fired drew much attention and criticism last year. It included six months of severance pay shares and other equity, leading many low wage frontline workers to muse about their pay gap with executives. And use the moment to highlight allegations of rampant sexual harassment of female employees by male co workers and managers across McDonald's restaurants sharing to Johnny directs the time's up Legal Defense Fund, which is backing workplace sexual harassment lawsuits by McDonald's workers were going to say You can't do certain things that were going to take conduct seriously. And they should be taking it seriously when it comes to their workers being sexually harassed, and, at a minimum committed 40 million. They're trying to get back from Easterbrook to stop that. Easterbrook successor, CEO Chris Kempinski often speaks about re committing to company values of integrity and inclusion. On Monday, McDonald's told workers it's conducting in global survey and listening sessions to assess the state of its corporate culture.

Trump tries to stop books about him
"Going on with the Book Business Right now? So this has been a fascinating time in publishing the last couple of weeks. We've seen kind of an epic clash building between the trump administration and the trump family and one publisher in particular. Simon and Schuster. This has happened several times during the course of this administration, the trump administration has threatened lawsuits against various publishers for producing alls or books that contain damaging information about the president most memorably it was Henry Holt when they published fire and fury by Michael Wolff, when they got a cease and desist letter from the president's personal lawyer. They decided to put the book on sale early. It sold incredibly well so. So the latest is Simon and Schuster of course released John Bolton's book this week, and that was something that trump administration tried very hard to prevent from happening. They told him he had failed to go through the necessary steps to get security clearances and remove classified information, and they finally asked a judge to prevent his publishers Schuster from distributing the book. The judge denied that although John Bolton himself may eventually have to forfeit some of his prophets, which were substantial. He reportedly got a two million dollar book deal, so that clash was playing out just in recent days in the book just went on Sale I. Think they've they've distributed two hundred thousand copies according to some of the legal filings. Filings and at the same time than Shuster is preparing to publish a very explosive, potentially explosive I should say I, haven't read it book by President Trump's niece Mary trump and just this week. President Trump's family sought a temporary restraining order to try to block publication of that book by Mary Trump which is called too much never enough. How my family created the world's most dangerous man, so the title suggests that this is not going to be a positive book. It's scheduled to be released by Science Schuster on July. Twenty eight th. The book is finished its edited, but they're starting this process earlier I think with the Bolton Book. They came in pretty late in the game with the effort. Effort to prevent distribution. The books had already shipped retailers had them news organizations had them all the information started leaking out a few days before publication, so the effort to kind of contain the damage came pretty late, and it was pretty toothless as far as preventing the information from getting out so in this case they have a little more leeway, but again I think the legal precedent is very very hard to preemptively prevent information from coming out, so it's going to be another tough battle for them. This has been a really eventful year for Simon and Schuster I. Mean I, they were put on sale right, and then very suddenly they're chief executive officer. Carlin really died of a heart attack. And all of these incredibly explosive books are coming out. Is the company doing well? At a time when a lot of publishers are struggling to break through the news cycle Simon and Schuster is creating the news cycle. So that's kind of extraordinary, you know the John Bolton Buck has been number one on Amazon for Awhile Mary trump is close behind it, and they have more coming in the pipeline that are I. Think certain to be bestsellers including I, think most significantly. Significantly another book by Bob Woodward his previous book about the trump administration, which was titled Fear Sold Millions of copies, and again caused a lot of consternation, the administration and he has a sequel to. That's coming out this fall. I don't believe it's titled Yet, but it's about the administration president has said he spoke to Bob. Woodward for this book, so it'll be interesting to see what. What secrets remain for more to find out given all of these dulls that have come out I was speaking to some people in Washington like Robert Burnett who a famous Washington lawyer who represents a lot of politicians and has been around for a long time and. His observation I thought was interesting. It's just you know the volume of books that have been that have come out during. This administration is quite unusual. It's it's fairly typical for there to be a wave of of memoirs. Tell all I was inside the room kind of books to come out the years after the presidency when people can reflect, and there is no longer the the political pressures of the day were a reelection campaign for example, but the revolving door in the administration today has been moving so quickly. People Cycle in and out and I think that his accelerated the rate of
"chief executive officer" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"James say what's up to fire, nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know what's up. Fire nation great to be here, JD. So I think one of the things about me that most people probably wouldn't know unless you're. My parents I my first big sale. In my career was actually selling my swing set when I was at like eight or nine years old like down with this for sale. Yeah well, it was really funny, because I was home alone, and my neighbor came driving up our driveway and he knocked on the door. He's like hey or your parents here now. They're not here and I just figured the conversation would end. And we just kind of stood there, and it was awkward for a minute, and he looked over my swing. Say He's like. Oh, it's a really nice swing set, and I look over at it realizing exactly what you just said. That was like well. Do you want to buy it? And he said really I was like yeah, sure I was like I'm not using anymore. Why don't you make me an offer? and He he knocks. I sold for seventy five. Yeah! He's like all right. I'll take it I was like perfect, so he goes driving down the road and my parents see the swings at hanging off the back of his truck near like was that your swing set I was like yeah, I just sold it. Your parents like we spent seven hundred and forty dollars. Exactly, we'll fire nation as I shared during the majority of talking about how to go from chief everything officer to chief executive officer, and we have a lot of grey ground, cover and James actually want to start by talking about the genius paradox. Why do most people get stuck in their business? Yeah, most people get stuck in their business because they're really good at something and most people start a business because you have an idea for a product or a service or whatever it. And you're good at that thing and you start doing more of that thing and you create success, and it's almost like you know those. Chinese handcuffs where you put both of your fingers like. The harder you pull that like the harder it is to get out and I think the better you are at your thing, the more success that you create. And one ends up happening like. If you picture you know a pie at first when you're starting, you're getting to do your thing. Fifty sixty seventy eighty percent of the time and the more success, you create the more other things that you create while you're doing that thing right? You now have more customers. You've bills any to be paid. People that are working for you potentially all these different things so that percentage of the Pie that you're working on your Zona genius, which is the catalyst for growth, start shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and sooner or later. You're like man I'm not even getting to do the thing that I'm good at the thing that I love. The thing that I was so excited about when I first started this. Because there's all this other stuff, so it's almost it's sort of this cruel joke. The better you are, the faster that success happens, and then that creates a whole new set of problems. Kinda reminds me of the book a little.

Saint Laurent’s is ditching the traditional Fashion Month Calendar
"Get down system news breaking news this week. I was pretty at. He can aback by the SUNOL announcement. Picking them back in a good way. Ya was although I guess in the last episode we'd been wondering whether big changes were actually going to end up happening so I guess there's your proof that's your answer so for anyone who doesn't know son. A Hall has decided to drop out of Paris fashion week and set its own pace for showing collections direction of the year. And it's going to pivot to adapt to the corona virus crisis and has said they told. Ww W D Saddam will said in a press. Release wd conscious of the current circumstances and it's waves of radical change. Santa has decided to take control of its pace and reshape. Its schedule creates Dr Anthony. Vaccarello said the violent impacted covered nineteen outbreak. Which has forced the closure of most of Santa Stores meant business as usual was not an option chief executive officer Francesca Valentini. Hinted that the brand famed for its spectacular outdoor women's catwalk shows set against the backdrop of the Eiffel Tower in Paris could still age a physical show at some point this year. But his favorite formats. They're more intimate and closely aligned. The final customer room. What do you think that means? It's such big news. I think that a house as respected and that does such exceptional job also needed such an exceptional job for its Shows has decided to to step down. Because that's a really really positive meaning that others will feel other smaller. Brands will feel like they can do the same without sounding like their brands in an unhealthy state. Because I feel like a lot of people will be worried about the way to investors and stuff at the same time as So that's also something to take into consideration when you're canceling big show and some of the big names of doing it gives a lot more room for others. I mean the rose also says that that's what they're going to be doing next season and I think this is a really positive outcome. I do that like brands. Moving away from the long lamented fares suck in place flashing. Schedules is a good thing. There is part of me. Worries that with brands. Big Sahel if they're off schedule but still in Paris are still gonNA maybe in completely off the mark with this that people are still gonna fly to Paris from other places to see that. But they're saying they're not showing. Well are they saying they're not showing? Yeah they said they're not doing a show could still stage a physical show at some point this year. Yeah at some point means one show instead of like the fashion week schedule. Which basically these three shows. Because that's two women or four shows to women's and men's which is from going from four to one is a big step. It's a big step back totally and I'm totally in agreement with that but I just worry that everything is going to become cruise collection competition e where big brands compete to have a more extravagant location or timing or whatever and then we're all just going to have to be on airplanes all the time in random directions and if that's what's going to happen? I would just rather we stick to the fashion week schedule because at least you just take one flight and then you go to Paris and you see the shows you know. That's the devil's advocate but bear in. Mind that that's if international flights have resumed. Which for the time being. It isn't the case and bronze will not have healthy budget. They used to fly people around on a whim as much as they used to. And I feel that for example a brand like Santa Hall would make sense to host an event of some kind in the form of a show. Something else every year in Paris. Because that's whether the house is located and you do have to find a way to promote and showcase what the designers creating certainly certainly so there is you have to be able to allow for some kind of formats. I think it's positive to see that it's going to be less than than it was and I really liked the idea of rethinking a system. That was so wrong but yeah I agree with you until we see what the outcome is. Exactly we can't really speculate county yet. No I assume you know what it occurs to me that some of our listeners might not beyond the fashion week circuit. I feel like I'd love you to go into a little bed and you're really up -cluded on the stuff as well. What about the fashion calendar is has been so wrong for so many years but especially in recent years? Can you speak to you kind of just touched on it? I think the competition for each brand to do bigger and better viral. Basically shows has become completely out of hand plus the fact that there are an increasing number of brands increasing number of people wanting to attend shows. Because it's good for positioning or like people just want to be seen their raw than the because they're actually you know helping promote the show itself and I also feel that we talked about this before. It's always fashion week somewhere and whereas they used to be only one week for each city it's now becomes so long and there's men's could chew and crews and then all the minor fashion weeks like Copenhagen and button and all the others that I can't think of the top of my head right now but I know there are loads of them. Do we really need a show format in an era which is increasingly digital. And when actually sitting front row to show would only be important if that show. It really is a proper added value to the brand. I think partly because of how exhausting has become for everybody and by everybody. I'm not talking about myself. I'm talking about people who really work super hot during that time. So the bias. The brands you work super hard juryman time. Yeah at the end of the day. I'm just that to report I'm not Like I feel like there's a lot of pressure during those those busy busy busy times and having so many shows back to back over a period of a month then Rick 'cause two three times in Aghia and where every single time you have to travel to a different city and attend just absolutely absurd amount of events and shows parties all in the name of promoting a brown and it just turns into a ridiculous exercise which is actually quite just quite cringe and especially after everything. We've gone through in last in the last few weeks. I think it would be quite distasteful to return to

Governments have no part of this But of course it seems like something is going to go ahead. what What do we know yet could often intimate afternoon indeed? Yeah Lifthansa. They've they've got there. They've got their annual shareholder meeting today. And of course I mean it's it's an AGM in a shareholder meeting without shareholders. Because you know everyone has to watch it removes Anyway Long Story. Short like other airlines. Lufthansa is also fighting for its survival. government bailout looks. Uh looks likely well. It looks absolutely necessary to be honest. the figure we've hurt is around ten billion euros and of course the The controversial story is that how big will the government influence be once they've provided the ten billion and you know if Lift chief executive officer. Cast boy has any say. I mean he doesn't want an easy to government people on his supervisory board and tell him how to run an airline and I think history's poorly shown that Governments aren't good owners of many assets airlines in particular. So so he. As far as we know he doesn't want the government in there but of course he needs the money so this is kind of this kind of the the question. That's that's being discussed in Berlin as we speak. How much government influence You know will will lift and up with overall. I mean the The the shares have had a pretty disastrous year. Obviously they've Haft lift has has said it will cut the number of aircraft operates permanently They've they've closed a few weeks ago. They've closed their discount Germanwings As a as a first step to to cut back on expenses so at the moment the company is burning through eight hundred million euros a month I think got fourbillion liquidity. Right now You do the math. It's it's it's not a unique situation but maybe just before we get to unique situations. Do we have any indication as to how much going to be Loans and then securities in? Are we looking at? The German state would actually go in and end up with fifteen percent right away or does that come as a second stage potentially I think I think it's really still still up in the. I mean as an example. You look at Suisse the Swiss army of of Lufthansa. They fully They got their money and the Swiss government Hey decided rather than to take a direct stake in the company which is giving medicine hundred percent owned by. Lufthansa would be difficult to pull off. Anyway Dave basically provided credit guarantees so Swiss will receive money from the banks from UBS in Credit Suisse and the government will provide guarantees to the tune of one point three billion francs

"chief executive officer" Discussed on My Career Fit
"Impact makers headquartered in Richmond Virginia and as a for profit management and technology consulting firm that is committed to contributing one hundred percent of its net profits to the community over the life of the company their community contributions rival companies one hundred times their size due to this revolutionary model as founding beat corporation impact makers has been named best for the world for the past six years as well as listed among the INC. Five thousand fastest growing companies list for the past seven years on today's podcast. I have the pleasure of speaking to chief executive officer Louis Broom. Hi Louis Broom Ceo of impact makers. I'd like to thank my personal. History has really positioned me well for this role. I've worked in industry with twelve years working on Wall Street running leading global. It teams on some pretty interesting projects. So I've been very technical roles I've worked in consulting for a while. This is my second. Ceo POSITION FOR CONSULTING Company. I have experience as an entrepreneur. Both in consulting and food service believe it or not is Baker Chef In College I started a community activists organization trying to make the world or better place. So I really couldn't be happier in this role and I'm very grateful and humbled to have this opportunity so I've been it impact makers for three years and for the last six months. I've really been leaning the organization through a brand refresh and by brand. I mean more than just updating our logo and website. It's really been a about Canada's more focused on how we create value for our clients and being clear on who our clients and why right so beyond this latest strategic imperative on a daily basis Think of my role really enabling and mobilizing the collective wisdom of the organization And the efforts And and how do we really live our brand and tactically? This means in our participate in either of our go to market solutions Help think through how to structure deals and our business development pursuits of course engage with clients to make sure we're exceeding their expectations and ultimately making sure we're focused on supporting our community partners through pro bono work in financial contributions as I mentioned at the top of the episode. Impact makers is a founding B. Corporation a certified B Corporation is a business that meets the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance public transparency and legal accountability to bounce Prophet and purpose and they're accelerating global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy. I asked Louis unpacked for us. More about what? Impact makers does and more about their social mission as a B corporation. So let me tell you about our position ourselves in the marketplace. In how I believe that differentiates us to win in really starts with our mission which is to make lasting impacts in. How do we do? That is by our model for delivering value to our clients We have Very technically strong teams delivering holistic solutions across our core services of cloud data cybersecurity and enterprise agility while at the same time we provide strong consulting services that ensures that the technical solutions were building our line to our clients. Business needs expectations and that the solutions are adopted. Bar Client organizations so that they can actually realize the value of the solutions. We appreciate that. The problems that we're all brought into solve will cost change in our clients organizations and that and that changes heart so to make sure we're able to create this tangible value with our technical solutions. We understand we have to be good it consulting while. All this may not sound revolutionary. Unless you're one of the big four. This is not really easy to do but we do it. It's unusual for firm our size of a little less than one hundred people to make this happen at a price value. That beats the big four all day long but finally a real differentiator is our unique model of being a for profit company. That works as a social enterprise for good in the community. Our clients like this about us but our staff loves this about US and it's what drives so much of our culture and that really brings in top talent. It attracts talent like no other. People want to come work here for our commitment to our community which tends to mean. They are people who are just committed individuals so when they're working with our clients they're working from sort of committed. Dna having a lasting impact. And how that translates for our community partners is their funding is focused on their mission. You know they're operating budget to build out a cloud solution or to build dashboards or to build an analytics platform right. They don't have that kind of funding so when we're able to throw a pro bono work come in and actually allow these organizations to scale work more efficiently. Give them insights or give them capabilities that they really couldn't afford to buy. That is really making an impact them just through our team being able to do what they do. Day In day. Out For our clients. These are four values maximize integrity foster collaboration cared deeply and make a lasting impact. Which is also our tagline and while they're all equally important and powerful we really believe cared deeply and make a lasting impact or quite unique and differentiated and it really is what makes our culture stand out against other companies. I don't know many other companies that would claim that one of their values is care deeply and what that means Saas tactically. Is We care deeply about that? Client success you know we care deeply about other human beings so we kinda just go out our work sort of through that lens so many ways you know having that deep set of values Really I think builds on our culture and really makes us a differentiated place to work with their headquarters in Richmond. Virginia clients across the East Coast in an emerging office in Washington DC. I asked Lewis to describe what truly sets. Impact makers apart from other consulting firms and what kind of associates or consultants truly thrive at impact makers. Yeah in in many ways. I think what really makes us? Different is our ability to be technically proficient while also being good consultants a LOT OF TIMES COMPANIES CONSULTING COMPANIES. Our size tend to be one or the other. We believe that our differentiation is the fact that we're we're bringing in people who understand the art of consulting and they understand how to communicate with clients how to manage their expectations but while also having really strong deep technical expertise on our teams so that we can kind of you know. Solve both pieces of that puzzle. We'll given what we've discussed really safe. Are you know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team? Based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact is really important to them. So this means a couple things Looking for people that want to combine their technical capabilities with an ability to what I call being a true consultant and it means people. He realized the value being a trusted advisers as important as being technically proficient. But there's one other thing that is important for candidates to understand what considering impact makers as a place for the next career and that is do they want to be part of helping to grow company specially companies. That's trying to do something very unique in the marketplace. The work for consultant here is yes delivering for clients working with our community partners to make them better. But it's also. How do you help build impact makers so how do you help us build the internal processes so we can scale And so it's important for candidates to realize that it's about helping to grow the company as much as being a consultant and we realized that this may not be you the place for everybody and that's okay. Lewis also gave us a window into impact makers strategic direction and where they see the company heading and how that also translates into hiring in terms of what kinds of roles. They're looking for in the marketplace so strategically our long-term growth plan is to create. Take the model that we have That were building today and replicate that in other geographical locations Were focused on building out our presence and the DC metro area. We have identified and created relationships with local nonprofits And so we're starting. Do Pro Bono work for them in the DC area so if we were to move into another city like Nashville or somewhere else you know. We want to take our whole package and move that to that geographic location and that includes having pro. Bono partners creating relationships with the community and being connected in with our neighbors. And how do we make that a better place to live right now? Where we're focused strategically is building out those internal processes so we can scale. You know we're looking at how we take our holistic solutions and line them to specific verticals that we work in specifically being healthcare providers healthcare payers the financial services market as well as a look one state governments. We're looking for strong consulting backgrounds for example folks with two plus years working for large consulting company. So they get what it means to be a professional consultant but it also means we're looking for folks who have had a more technically focused role in their pass in but feel they have a strong aptitude for consulting. This could be a clown engineer for example that sees the value in our consultative approach. And they won't be able to make the client better not just deliver technical solution and again this may not be a fit for everyone and that's Ok for my final question. I asked Lewis as I do. All my guest. How will you know if you've heard the right person for the job in the first year? How do you measure success for these roles? A great thing about consulting and how we operate is easy for everyone to see the value. They are creating For instance do clients like working with you. Do they want you to stick around? Because they see the value bring we call this client stickiness. There are also some hard measures for success like utilization which is a measure of how billable someone is as a consultant but there are other ways to measure success in delivering high quality work helping and business development pursuits not having to sell but helping to strategize and develop the materials in these pursuits mentoring. More junior resources And learning development. So that you become more valuable to our clients and we you know in your bill rate can increase so these are some other ways in which you know you can measure success beyond just utilization. You know we're looking for people that are interested in doing team based collaborative consulting were making a lasting impact. It's really important that you've been listening to the.
