We Can’t Trust American Institutions To Protect Us

"Now one of the reasons why we are in such chaotic times because the institutions that we used to trust to say no to the activists and be a bulwark against the radicals have done the exact opposite you see. We need institutions as backstops and constance in times of chaos and disorder in fact chaos and rebellion is the human norm having something that is permanent. Something that is around. The idea of transcendent order is very rare. So nine hundred eighties. Republicanism focused heavily on building up the united states military institution on building up private schools and institution building up corporations and institution. Yet as you look at the landscape in america do you actually trust those institutions. Are they communicators and are they. Are they stalwarts for defending natural rights. Children and passing down values from one generation to the other.

"In. I didn't instigated. Was actually really sweden with adam sandler actually so i waited on adam sandler and he liked started like making conversation with me a little bit about being an actress and we have small connection because when i went to For feeder institute might teacher there. Jeffrey had talked about being adam sandlers teacher and so i was like only god you and me. We both had jeffrey adly stars. And we're like. Oh my god and then. He was like well and doing this movie. If you like one audition for it and it was like yeah like totally and he was like well hall this number and you know we'll set something up and gave me a number and i was like maybe this bill share to like whatever but to adam sandlers credit. That was his assistance number. And i told him what adam said and he was like. Yeah let me. Give me your number. And i'm gonna give this casting director and we'll schedule an audition and they did schedule audition for like a small part in one of his comedies. And i can get the part. But like that i mean how jets are the mindset. That i didn't i didn't instigate that. He was the one who was like an having. The jeffrey connect from these strasbourg was amazing. He lives up to his great reputation. the i know you've talked about you. Know the twin crazy rich asians and fresh off the boat if if anything they were both huge cultural moments in addition to being you know projects that resonated in many different ways with people that in a way almost fresh off the boat was the more revolutionary one at the time i did it. I guess my question is like when you're in it for you. It's not about like. I would expect when you get that gay. It's not like we're we're breaking barriers down. We're doing that like you get you a job. You have the biggest job of your career like is that are you. You have that second site at the time. Are you also thinking these cultural. Tom's like yes. We are breaking boundaries. Down and this is going to be amazing or is it like no. This is the best gig i've ever had. It happened now. I think i might have more of awareness. I think. I think then when you're younger there's just so much noise that it's hard to really hear any and the noises not only what other people are saying but it's like your own insecurities about yourself And mike your fears of possibilities of the future. You know whatever might be happening in your personal relationships at the time. There's just a lot of noise that like. I feel like mike twenty dollars to the hanging out. You know like insulate my early thirties. But just when. I got fresh off the boat so at the time. Like there's a lot of relief because you know you've been having to pay for so long you can barely scraping by financially and then you have this opportunity and yes. It's like a big cultural moment. And you hear that noise but then you hear noise from critics and naysayers than you hear noise from like your family and your friends and then like your own worries about like yourself as an artist and it's It takes a lot of being annoys environment to learn how you yourself. Find your like internal quiet wick magnolias. So there's this george noise at the time for me to know anything that were storing all i was just like a young new. Does my first network show the only other thing. I had done before fresh off. The boat was on network was a couple lines of dialogue on von order. You know even the amazon pilot had been on amazon. That was their first year. They had done pilots I had no experience. Many people least have failed pilots that they could for nothing to get star. You know So there was a lot of anxiety about that. And i feel very lucky that i am somewhat out. You know somewhat unscathed not totally. France gained to give the character. I like to talk myself. Segue into something. That i don't necessarily want to like dig into but you've talked very openly like an obviously from this conversation. You're very candidate very open. You'll say what you feel and it's very refreshing and like obviously the fresh off the boat. Twitter thing obviously became thing right. And i'm sure and you you talked about it and had regrets about it but i guess my question is lessons learned from something like that and does it. Does it color. Unfortunately like looking back at the experience on fresh off the boat in any way or can you separate like that shitty moment from what was a great run in pivotal. Run in your career. I think it is Lettuce had before. It's all about context. And i actually think that it makes me more grateful for it because just like one of my other interviews like the journalists was like Quoting bryan stevenson. Who just mercy and choosing like. You're not the worst thing you ever dead. And i was like yeah. You're also not the best thing you ever did. So i think that moment really became a i mean i think the hardest times in your life or the best because you learn it all yourself so much from them and i am. I am richer for that experience and my more popular that for not okay. Like that's okay though but like like in terms of old knowing who i am and like under and just like growing i am rich for that experience and Yeah and and then you have to recalibrate and feel like oh well you know what. I'm not more popular for that experience. But like was popularity your reason for getting him to this. Is that thing that feeds you. It's actually not is for some people but for me you know. I don't get psyched. Defy non social media anymore. But i don't get signed by moore. Social media follows. What do i get breathed out by singing musical theater songs on a bus. Like that's what gets me fucking sykes right and so yeah. It's a there's a way to look at it in which it doesn't seem like the best thing and there's a way to look at it where it's just like how incredibly clarifying and like Going through hard stuff like that. How much richer for learning about yourself. And mike you're reactivity in what it spraying from and who and how it can inform you become You know and i very measured response to it now. I don't always feel that way. But what's what's being human right you the robot. Yeah exactly yeah so. But that's how i think about it today. Is that that yeah. It's all part of this. Big thing called life by your references. The musical theater throughout. I'm guessing you're more likely to end up in a big movie musical at this point then star wars or marvel movie. That's what you're that's got what. Yeah oh yeah. That's what i'm fucking trying for. Man like i keep saying like. Oh these scripts of great. But where's my fucking musical. That's what i really want. And i watch but that's a really good music. Because he's been there a classic musical hasn't been done for the big screen that you dream of doing.

Britney Spears' conservatorship, explained

"Justin timberlake publicly apologized to britney spears even though their relationship ended like twenty years ago. The apology has a lot less to do their bygone romance and much more to do the reckoning over how this country treats its famous young women and britney spears has gone from something of a villain in this story to something much more closely resembling a hero. The freebritney movement deserves much of the credit for that transformation. It's a fan driven campaign which hopes to liberate brittany from her conservatorship constance. Grady has been covering free brittany for. Vox so a conservative ship is illegal solution for what happens if you're an adult but you can't make decisions for your life in your best interests. So this is something that is used if you have a mental health condition or brain injury You're developing dementia. And you're unable to care for yourself. So accord will assign someone to do that for you. So britney went under conservatorship in two thousand eight and under the terms of her conservatorship. She's not in control of her finances or business or personal life so for about two years now going back actually to the point that the conservatorship was set in place in two thousand eight but most intensely for the past two years and especially now since the release of be new documentary framing. britney spears. Fans have been speculating. That the conservatorship has left britney spears as a prisoner in her life and that she might need to be rescued. Okay well let's go back to two thousand eight and talk about why britney spears was placed under this conservatorship. If you think back to two thousand eight you might remember that. There was just nonstop goth coverage of britney spears that year relief and in two thousand seven especially as well. They're repoprt ati following her around. All the time would like wait outside her limo when she was going to clubs to take up strict photos of her and then the entire internet would discuss her underwear and she was starting to react back to them. In increasingly bizarre ways she started yelling at the paparazzi in a british accent once he attacked hover car with an umbrella. Please please seed saved her own head up. Which was all photographed by paper off. They're very famous pictures of her sort of grinning and holding up a to her scalp. She went in and out of rehab. A few times that to the pictures were all over teams. The press helps them now and is performed at the emmy in two thousand seven in this kind of infamous performance where she was sleepwalking through it the press discussed whether she was fat now lot there was a lot going on for her. It was not a good year. Fears has lost so she fits under psychiatric hold twice. What does that mean. She is put in a mental hospital and not allowed to leave what happened. I think that one angle of what happened to britney that we have to hit here. Is that the media industries incredibly sexist straight and even more so when she was coming up. There's one subject we didn't discuss. What was that. everyone's talking about it. Well you'll breasts. There is that whole narrative about whether britain a real virgin and that some like ruin adults would ask her at press conferences. And my of virgin. I think especially when she was with justin timberlake and they've never really cared about justin timberlake's virginity because who would. It was just about britney in her schoolgirl uniform. And you know each. She actually a good girl. There was this intense very sexualize focus on her life. That just wasn't there. In quite the same way for her male cohort. No matter how famous they were. It's hard to imagine that that did anything good for her. And then why does the conservative. Come about a month after the second psychiatric hold. Her father says these are not working. Long-term go under a hold. A doctor will say okay. You're fit to live your own life. Now she'll go out and then she'll spiral and it happens again. So he asked the court for emergency temporary conservatorship over brittany the courts. Brandt that order and then it becomes permanent.

10,000 stores expected to close this year due to COVID-19

"Major retailers, the report says, are expected to close 10,000 stores this year that is up 14% from the year just ended. But at the same time more than 3300 new stores open last year, and course I predicts another 4000 will open this year. Marketplaces Kimberly Adams has that one. The types of stores that shut down in the pandemic include lots of footwear, clothing and accessory shops. According to course, I research the types of retail that opened discount outlets like Dollar stores. Industries that cater to certain pandemic needs also did all right. I believe the housewares category as all overall in the country has seen tremendous growth from New York to the West Coast. Natasha aim it runs the kitchen supply store Whisk in New York. Her business did better than she expected in 2020. Now as restrictions start to lift. I'm hopeful that people will will keep up their love for cooking and want to spend their money at a store like cars, businesses, small and large, are trying to game out which pandemic changes will be permanent. Constance Hunter, chief economist at KPMG says, at least for those who are on the upside of the case shaped recovery, and I do think this pent up savings is going to lead to higher consumption that we would normally expect. Once we get to the other side of the pandemic, and for businesses that can hold on. Until then, there could be a business boom.

Alamo Drafthouse CEO On Navigating The Pandemic

"Here's shelley taylor. Ceo elon draft. S shelley. taylor. You the alamo draft house. Welcome to decoder. Thank you glad to be here. I was just reading your bio in the backstory here. I i got to start with this. You became the ceo of alamo draft house on april thirtieth. So you have stepped into chaos. I think elmo actually shut down forty one theaters in march. What was this recruiting pitch. Like like they call you and say hey are you interested. Were already in the works. Just it seems like a wild way to become the ceo. Movie theater chain. Yeah it is. It does feel wild but the it was in the works at christmas wintom and i met and started talking and drawn to this incredible brand and this opportunity to you know. Help take something iconic And growing even larger right and then all of a sudden the pandemic and here we are so. We've got this little issue to get through that we can go back to the original plans. What was just the first day. April thirtieth you show up. You got to introduce yourself to ever like there's usually a script right follows. You say something like i. I just wanna listen. There's like the usual stuff. Was it very different this time or did you just come running the little of both right. I mean you talk about like just really wanting to listen and to get to know people. You don't have the advantage of the water cooler in the proximity But at the same time there's nothing like a crisis to create a need for connection and speed to trust and really fortunate that the company and the teammates i've been so welcoming and and willing to just assume good and thompson and wanna move forward versus having to do some of that initial stuff so it was pretty fast and no one's kicked me out where seven munson and i'm still here. Things are going pretty well considering so i always try to ask everybody to begin about. Decision making frameworks before alamo draft house. You will see a large group of planet fitness locations. You were at disney before that. Tell me about your general way of making decisions. How do you think about evaluating your choices and actually make coming to a decision. I think it's a couple of things one is just knowing who and what you are Is the beauty of everywhere. I've worked has had a really clear sense of their purpose and values and the problems that they're trying to solve in this world So always starting with that framework and You know driving from there. I think that one of the things that i took from starbucks and hug valued over the years is that you always put people into that that equation So when you're looking at a decision at the stake holders it's your customers you know it's the people on your team You know having all those all those points of view and then sometimes it is the broader community depending on what the product is. And so i think if you start there and then you put it in a good good dose of data and a good dose of your gut usually. That's a great way to go. I mean that's pretty simple and obviously depending on the complexity of what you bring in or don't bring in but you know it's it really is values and people and direction to other reason. I asked that question is because right. Now you're managing in a crisis where there is a flood of data. You have a very physical plant kind of business. People go to a movie theater and sit down and stay there for a while. How are you managing the influx of covid information. There's a massively disjointed federal and state response there's people who are refusing to wear masters right before he came on new york city closed at schools. Again it feels like there's just a flow of information about the pandemic and how it's going and how we're handling it you say there's a lot of data but the data is a messy. The points of view are messy. How are you just managing that. Yeah that's a great question. And i appreciate. And i really want to reemphasize the lack of coordinated government approach is like crippling the nation. And if there is a message. And i know lots of people are saying this but if there is a message to our government right now It is critical that they have a coordinated approach. And the way that we're approaching a is one you know just my own prayer experience living and working in china and seeing how this has been approached in the past You know helps watching countries that are you know and businesses in countries that are making good. Decisions helps And then we've just been just trying to take a very steady approach. And that is with the information that we do now and that is not constantly changing and some of that is but there are a few constance out. There you know is how can we make our experience as safe as possible from purchasing your ticket to the minute you leave the theater and we haven't wavered from that you know we've done a lot of you know pretty scrappy fast innovation for online ordering Both of tickets and food Eat a how you come into the theater doing the spacing that people. So that six foot distance we had before it was popular You know we said that we were gonna enforce mass for everybody. We thought about our kitchens creating a smaller menu so that we can social distance within our kitchens. How do we not breathe on to touch food. How do we help. People exit the theater. I mean you just name it. We've taken every single precaution that we can and we've gone as far as we could. So we've just said what is the safest ridge of possibility and yes. There's going to be this constant complex information but until there's something that comes in that says differently we're not gonna waiver And and that's suspend our approach. And i don't know with all the variables out there how anyone can do it differently. Is that a set of advisors team members. You needed to build. I feel like most movie theater chain in a lot of like epidemiologists on staff before covid but now all of us are you know we're all looking for the that expertise while looking for those guidelines. Have you built that muscle and that skill evaluate those decisions. Well we do have a really great source of a lot of people who are willing to help us. Whether it's you know our our p. firm ultimately capital gives us a ton of information and advice whether it's you know our our insurance and brokers on that side bringing a ton of advice and then you know we've got strong relationships with University of texas. Ut you know and the information that you can get you know publicly so you know. We've we've probably done with a lot of people do we. Don't have a ton of money right now. Our resources are very skinny. We've had to kind of do it yourself as best as possible. And we'll continue to to probably operate in that method but it comes back to that need for a government approach to this and the government really could be doing a better job at providing clear guidance that does not consistently changed to businesses and quite frankly equitable to businesses equitable. I just small examples in some cities. We're not allowed to open. Are we can open. But we can't serve food yet. The restaurant next door consider food That just doesn't make sense You know in in how you operate you know what's the logic and a simple clear set of criteria that everyone operates off of because part of the problem. Is this the noise and the and the confusion that goes out to the to arc arc our customers. Our you know it safe here. But it's not safe with you and and people can't discern that you know so it really should be agnostic to the business what what is safe. And what's not to the best that we know today right. Yeah asking for a lot probably well. there's new administration. We'll see how it goes us. One of the things about the pandemic that i've heard from many ceo's executives at this is still rated trends that we already saw coming in some cases. Those trends are positive. We've seen a massive celebration in commerce. Ever already saw that coming. We just turn the knob up. There's been a pretty loud conversation for years about the future of movie theaters and some of that is played out in different ways. Like rom coms. Don't really get made by hollywood but every other netflix show is like basically around calm. And so we've just seen the dynamics of the industry change. I've always thought of alamo draft house has being slightly different than your average trig antic chain movie theater you have. Food isn't experience. You're running old movies. People come there as a social event. Do you see it as this is accelerating the trend. That was already coming or you know you started by saying we'll just get back to work when it's over. Do you see this. As as an aberration on the planet you already had for for your company so yes the world is accelerating in many ways. What won't go out of style. His community on social experiences. And so i think while the industry was right for disruption and racine that alamos secret sauce really right is creating. These communal experiences for people bringing the community together to laugh cry gas. Whatever but have fun together and that won't go out of style and so for us it will be going back to the secret sauce of what makes us special

How Investment Advisors Invest Their Money

"Josh bam co riddled wealth management and author of the new book. How i invest money. Welcome to the show. So josh in this book you talk to your fellow. Money managers about how they invest their own money. What they do with it. Is this kind of like asking chefs like what they cook for themselves when they're at home. I think that's a really great analogy. I hadn't i hadn't thought of that. But i like it. I'm gonna steal that steel steel away. So yeah tell me about. Were there any surprises. There were There were a few constance. We heard a lot about index funds of being a building block for portfolios. Yeah you're basically like placing a bet on the stock market going up on the index itself. Going up and this is like one. Oh one investors thing like this does not seem like what pros you know. All the stuff would do. They're like extremely basic but they're basically a good way because what you see is what you get and for better or for worse. You don't have somebody who's trying to beat the stock market and failing and then we heard a lot of people who had made investments that they know mathematically or logically weren't necessary than one of my favorite child is my bob. See right who He's got a couple of decades on me but his his his concept was sometimes the financial investment. That looks the the most illogical makes the most sensible when you incorporate the emotional aspects and he's talking about a beach cottage that he bought that is now where all of the memories of a stanley are made. And it's where he spends time with his grandkids and financially. It's not a good investment will probably not break even on it but that's not the point. What was the craziest thing you heard. I think i was surprised. That howard wounds in he's an angel investor out west. I was surprised that he owns zero bonds. Oh yeah because the banzer like that's sort of like the i guess if we're going to keep our chef analogy. That's like pasta. That is like everybody's got pasta on the menu. I almost think it's even more elemental than that. I almost think it's the water that you boil and rinse vegetables at our best. When we say bonds we're referring to his treasury bonds which are colloquially speaking the risk free asset supposed to be the safest thing yeah we his his entire persona is wrapped up in this idea of just growth as far as the eye can see and he's willing to bear risk and he's ever accomplished in his life has come as a result of bearing risk bearing more risk than others were bear. And so that's that's like an invest an example of an investment philosophy overlaps with the life philosophy. Did you get any sense of of how these investors deal with their money at a moment like this like in a moment of crisis. Because i imagine that is a question. You're getting all the time. If you're going to be a financial adviser to investors and you're gonna be worth anything to to those investors you have to have an investment philosophy. That's long-term in nature and that is built to endure market events economic crises et cetera. You have to get people to believe in what they're invested in if you expect them to hold onto that portfolio through market volatility. Their relationship with their investments is casual and not spiritually and emotionally meaningful. Been it's easy for them to discard those investments. The minute the sledding. It's tough and so. I think one of the biggest trends in the market twenty twenty is on. Es g or environmental social and governance focused investing so these are portfolio's being put together based on the premise that investors want to have their money go to companies. That are doing the right thing doing the right thing in terms of did the environment when we say governance are they treating shareholders fairly. We say social or the promoting women. Are they hiring. People that are non white forty year old males on. Es g is the only category of mutual fund that saw positive infos this year really and the good news is that the millennial generation They care about what they own. They wanna have a connection with their portfolio. So i would say that that that's like one of the the silver linings of this moment in time is that wall street is waking up to the fact that this is a new generation of investor this generation not only didn't panic from volatility volatility actually drew them closer in. Okay josh you heads knew. This question was coming. How do you invest your money. While i'm at one hundred percent crypto so same same so in my 401k as is your retirement invest directly in the same strategies that our clients do on the other end of the spectrum. I'm doing some things. That are a lot riskier than what i would do for clients so outside of my retirement accounts. I'm making veteran vestments. I'm backing friends. Were starting companies so like for me. That's what makes me feel good to be able to support things that i myself believe in people more importantly that i believe in so what is like the most amazing investment. You've made what's the one that got away. The most amazing investment i ever made was in my own company in two thousand thirteen. My partner and i put up fifty thousand dollars. We built the firm that i think could be doing ten million dollars in revenue next year. Wow so the best investment you ever made was in your own having your own business your own entrepreneurial. Venture was there when the gateway well. When i was a teenager. I owned all of the dot. Com stocks is a teenager nineteen. You were like a man. I was like. I don't even know what is doing but definitely investing in stocks earrings at the mall was really does an idiot savant. Because i didn't hold any of them. I had a bunch of stocks that no longer exist. But i also owned amazon. But i didn't hold it like so like all right so i've long since we bought. It said oreo be fine. But like i'm saying you know you say to yourself. How can you really regret that decision. How could you have possibly known of the thirty. Publicly traded dot com companies from nineteen ninety seven nine hundred ninety eight that one of them was going to become as big as important as amazon. And you wouldn't pick amazon by the white. It was a company that sold books bucks. Yeah totally so anyway but like i. Don't i try not to dwell on stuff like that you know. That's that's an argument in favor of indexes on because what happens in an index as the companies that go bankrupt and disappear the smaller. They get the more they shrink shrinking importance in the index. Because they get so small whereas the winners that keep on winning balloon in size within the index One of the best regret minimization tricks. I know of is to at the the index to its work. And had you done that over the last thirty years rather than trying to outsmart the market. You probably did better than ninety nine percent of other investors. Excellent will josh. Thank you so much for talking with me. It's my pleasure. Stacey thank you so much for having me. And i hope

As Tanzania Votes, Many See Democracy Itself on the Ballot

"Tons Anita went to the polls yesterday to vote in an election overshadowed by opposition complaints of irregularities such as ballot box, stuffing President John Maga. Fully who is accused of stifling democracy seeks a second term in office alongside fourteen other candidates talk to Dan. Padgett is electoral politics at the university. Of Aberdeen, he specializes in political communication through mass rallies and populist and nationalist ideologies in Tanzania and joins me on the line. Now Don Tanzania's long been thought of in the West is a a haven of stability within east Africa but I mean this isn't necessarily the case and I. I wonder if you could sketch out the political dynamic there, the ruling party's been in power since nineteen sixty one. Yes that's right. It's is the longest ruling party in sub. Saharan Africa. The political dynamic in Tanzania has been one of the ruling Kanzi, CCM's decline over the last fifteen years. Reaching a low point in two thousand fifteen where it where the margin of victory was. The fittest is ever been. Since then President Michel, Foodie, it came to kyle and that's election has led Tanzania. Very shot an increasingly extreme offered Harry. Intern. And we weren't sure how just how? Radical that authoritarian agenda would be and the election this we're just getting results from now suggests that it is as bad as any of us feared as so the opposition allegations of vote rigging, etc do stand up. Well. So. Of course, normally I would turn to international election observers. Attorney to arbitrate these claims to decide which to give credence in which not to give credence. Unfortunately, we can't almost no international election observers. Were invited and those that were invited were. Invited at our so Given that and given the advantage of the opportunity that this creates the ruling party the elections it's hard not to give at least prima facie credence to these opposition claims especially given the the wide range of anecdote to. Video and photographic evidence that I've seen an which which I've been collecting these last twenty four hours, and of course, zipping a social media crackdown various restrictions on the press. Has Been, a crackdown all over and and for the last five years. So in many ways, the the rigging receipt which we've been seeing apparently seeing of the next twenty four hours. Is. Really just the icing on the authoritarian cake. There's extreme. Media Censorship rallies have been banned and consider route the rally. The most important means of communication tends to emotional time about seventy percent of people attend local meetings on a regular basis and attend election campaign rallies they were they were abandoned twenty sixteen and indeed the opposition at large have. Hottest. Struggle underneath. Almost constance. Of States and extra state harassment in includes trumped up court cases but also extrajudicial. So extra state attacks. Unknown assailants that have arrested some abductors killed. And in fact, one of the main challenges has recently returned to the country after recovering from gunshot wounds. That's right. So tenderly series is. Presidential. Candidate is the largest opposition party in Tanzania. and. So that's Experience of being of surviving attempted assassination attempt has has given. US already in very impressive political figure a sort of a sparkle. Some people referred to him as a living miracle. But of course, we don't know the results. Yes. But we all seeing violence particularly in Zanzibar. Zanzibar the autonomous. ARCHEPELAGO's Zanzibar, which is a federally devote area of 'em. Into UK. Has has often seen electoral violence. We saw it in ninety five and two, thousand and thirteen, thousand, five and twenty fifteen and actions by varying degrees. So in in some ways, this is a return to form It's not. The recurrence of violence is is. Seems to be because the opposition has probably one in sensabaugh almost every time. But they've never officially one out one means or another has always been used to not in the that's the that's the the scholarly consensus on. Politics what's different? This time I think is that there's violence on the mainland as well. So this is no longer an issue of contained physical violence in Zanzibar. There have been a series of incidents including. What appears to be an attempt to a to attack the chairman of the leading opposition party on the eve of the elections. So that's one difference the other is considered. No money there is. A. Sporadic protests violence and in return state brutality, police army heavy-handedness in putting down those protests that the protests have often been. Constrained and sporadic because they have not been condoned led. By, by the leaders of the opposition there, there are indications that this could be different this time one of the reasons for that is. The, the rhetoric is different. The leader of the opposition in Zanzibar say amount has been say had has been saying that in the past he's held his supporters back. He's been of restraint, and at this time he he won't urge restraint to newly sue has said that he will. Bring people out onto the streets and consider the state of the opposition behind because it seems like this might be the last stand in a sense that vikings they can make, and so they they don't have that say incentive to hold back this time and say the keep up how to drive the next time. Just finally before we go, do you think that this is part of something that we're seeing across parts of Africa there is a younger demographic. They were all born after independence that not prepared to accept authoritarian rule the just coming to the age where they are protesting we're seeing it in Nigeria within saws and in various other places could this be the the Africans spring. My sense is if there is African spring to come, it will come off and an Wiki will extend. Mexico an authoritarian winter. The trend on that strikes me is that a number of leaders are emerging in an intense Aena in Zambia. In other parts of the consonant, which bear a striking resemblance to this sort of authoritarian. Developmental. Nationalists of is so The there's a young population I are angry. But in fact, I think the trend seems to go the other way. And results. When can we expect those? So the first also are already dripping in and they show. That a series of opposition strongholds, there's places that you would never expect or or at least likely. To expect to go to a to the ruling party are being won by then by margins of three to one, which suggests that the the the rigging. Being worried about maybe taking place typically a Tanzanian election result takes three or four days that was related end and announced especially with the presidential elections but. So far. This is actually has been crisis already.

"And Nina kept saying people are GonNa love you. People are GonNa love you because you again 'cause she was said you you're going to see it in your eyes that you have a vulnerability and this is your armor. And we need to represent these women they need to be represented. And I was like, okay, okay okay. And then like two or three episodes in I than just snapped and I became incredibly obsessed with how she was represented because they were doing safe words in the first season like you couldn't say pussy, you had to say. and. I said, no, no, here's the thing. If you want me to play this character, I have got to go dirty. This woman is not going to say hoo-ha and it was from that episode and that scene and that word. that. I said I'm into if I'm going to do this, I have to go hardcore and that was the best advice. I could have kind of given myself because you can't play that character like half, ass. I mean it was it was exhausting. It's really is the hardest character I've ever played because it took so much out of me. It took all my kind of joy of life and my inherent happiness that I have on a daily basis and I had to put that away. And then I got you know. I think obviously, it helped that the first season when over so well and the. I didn't realize women needed that I didn't know that women needed these women and and the relationship between Quinn and Rachel was also something I didn't think was going to explode the way it did and then I felt so proud and so honored that it was in our hands to deliver these messages for women and especially in the reality world in those those shows where women are treated so horribly and it really blew the lid off something. Yeah and I did not see that I didn't anticipate it and I think it's why made it so glorious. But it was hard. How's it very, very hard hard part I get it and and I think that's really important thing even to acknowledge people forget that what we do is easy and playing some of these people is I mean it's I have had experiences myself onset where I almost feel like I've I rap season and it's like getting over mono. It's like you don't even realize that you've just you're you've fallen apart. Due to do some of this and so I think. That's so interesting that you can love something so much it can be so ard. Yeah and I when it was over I was I was exhausted and I was like I can't. I can't do this anymore. I mean it's I mean I was also flying back and forth from Vancouver and going home every weekend, and then being a mom and a wife and not Either very well because I was so in my head and I was so It was just crazy. So that was also exhausting, but it is funny because here I am now two years later, and now I'm like we need Quinn like. We need her back there was there was messaging that I could do through her yes. And that's that's what's really important. I'm realizing more than again our own egos associated it's a big. It's a big thing you you told Marc Maron that rolls for you have only gotten better since you turn forty which I love. and. Is there something that looking forward you haven't done that you want to is is it more of a Quin for you? What? What is it? You know I would love to get back to my. Comedy Chops, which is when I come from, which is all I did in the beginning of my career and then everyone said everyone's only GonNa look at you as a Sitcom..

Yeah I mean and I think I can talk about the story because Doug, Allen the Creator knows the whole story but. So when I auditioned I auditioned in the second season. So the showed argument on for a year. And I seen it and I didn't like it and I thought it was incredibly very male chauvinistic. I thought that all the women were noon nobody was smart and why would I want to be on a show like that and when the audition came in I actually didn't I said no and I didn't want to go on it and my agents actually forced me they said, here's the thing we're not GonNa, let you say no, because this show is going to be like a cult hit. They're going to fix the issues, the women and the men, and you know HBO has been very vocal about saying that they would like to have some stronger female characters present and its three episodes.

"Yeah. Well, and I also think you know I've been directing and. When you step outside of what you actually do as your career, and this is I think true to everybody no matter what they do if you go and you take another job inside of what you do. So you can work in an office and say I'm GonNa go and one day just be behind my president and see what my president does every day in my job or whatever whatever you, WanNa. Call it because it changes your perspective of your responsibility and how you are part of the team. And a lot of people don't know that until they step out of it and step behind it and you know look I we've been on sets for years and I was like no I. Get it. I know I, know we are not in this alone this would not happen. This couldn't get made if this one person didn't show up. Yeah right and I think like actors should go and. Shadow, a director shadow of producer shadow and executive shadow somebody within your space to see how important every piece of the puzzle is and you know because I do think that we forget and I think everybody out in the world forgets because everybody we all get in our habits like this is my job. This is my part but no, we all play a part in so many other things and I like doing that because it just reminds me how. Important everybody's places. No matter what they do and I think about that as kind of a, that's a microcosm example of the macrocosm of society right? Like if we took more time to look at what everyone's doing, what our city workers doing postal workers doing and what's happening in the county courts and what's going on at the coffee shop on the corner it's so important that we look at an honor everybody's role in this because were building something collective league. And I think we can forget and out there in the world we can think, well, what's happening to me in the world what's going on for me and it is really important to kind of step into other arenas put yourself in other people's shoes and when I'm thinking from that place, I can feel it in the way I operate in the world around me and so that becomes a goal to try to think about that more often. Yeah and and it's interesting when relating back to set my first show when I was doing one tree hill, we were in North Carolina for nine years, and like it is a small place, we were trapped together you. One of the ways that I really. Found continued investment for me as a creative in that job was to be more and more behind the scenes.

Medical tech is the new gold rush for investors during the pandemic

"More people are seeing their doctors added distance during the pandemic in this long awaited to telehealth has investors intrigued there was already a boom in biotech investing before covid nineteen hit. But now investors are rushing to put money into all kinds of ways to modernize medicine from Boston W.. G. B. H. Radios Aaron Schachter has more personal. Medical Technology isn't especially new push your fitness further with fitbit charge to a heart rate and fitness wristband that helps you make the most of all day workouts and beyond. And the wearables are just one facet of health tech. The pandemic has shown that much of health care can be delivered at a distance and there's been a boon in telehealth platforms, online fitness classes, and Internet connected devices that are vital signs. Harry LARRIKIN IS CO author of moneyball medicine thriving in the new data driven healthcare market before Cova. Did you really have to look at these things and figure out where the world was GONNA go how fast it was going to go there all of a sudden now you're giving people i. don't WanNa say no choice but now they. Need these things and tech investors want in venture capital entities have invested nearly five and a half billion dollars in medical tech from January through June that's according to rock health a company that helps digital health startups. But there are those urging caution about the direction. These investments take all too. Often the technology has attempted to reengineer the process of care rather than leverage. The most efficient process of Care Jed constance is a healthcare consultant. For example, he says, it took years for the developers of medical records technology to get it right because early versions made it difficult for doctors to Talk to patients and fill in the required computerized forms. Constant says there's a history of companies creating what's flashy instead of what's practical and so the venture capital investor backed efforts have found them to be largely ignorant. There are also concerns that new health technology could exacerbate disparities in healthcare between rich and poor communities doctor. My mom is the former chief innovation officer. At Medicare's innovation center she says that smartwatch are fun but the kinds of devices that help most people stay healthy are often more mundane. Can you develop a tool that will help them track their medications with things? That automatically dispense medication for them and or something that will give their physicians more real time data on which medications they're actually taking according to rock health much of the venture money handed out this year went to companies developing online platforms for more telemedicine, digital pharmacies, fitness classes, and more efficient ways to deliver mental health counseling at a distance that's w. g. b. h.

The American Jewish Community and the 2020 US Election

The American Jewish Community and the 2020 US Election

"Soifer previously served as national security adviser for Senator Comma Harris now, the Democratic nominee for vice president and Joe Biden's running mate. She joins us now to talk about the role. Jewish. Voters play and how she believes. Democrats addressed. Jewish. Priorities please keep in mind. AJC. Is a five. Oh One C. Three not profit organization AJC neither supports nor opposes candidates for elective office and with that disclaimer Haley welcome thank you so much for having me. So let's start with the basics and Kinda, the horse race aspect of this how much of the American voting population identifies as Jewish? So the Jewish community in terms of the American population is about two percent, but we're actually about three percent of the electorate and we'd play an outsized role in. NHS for three reasons, we voted higher rates. On average Jewish Americans vote at a higher rate than. By about fifteen percents we also where we live correlates with wear our votes tend to matter even more we tend to live in swing states and a third reason which I'm sure we'll get into is that we overwhelmingly support Democrats in our view as Jewish Democrat organization that is especially or in terms of the outsize impact we have. So Haley Bernie Sanders in his speech on Monday addressed the many Democrats who really wanted him to be the nominee and many of them were Jewish are Jewish many of them have us on Israel, that don't jibe with the very pro Israel aspects of the party, platform. It really sounded like Bernie was calling on Democrats to unify despite their differences and I'm curious how the Party and its leadership have prevented Israel from becoming a wedge issue. Joe Biden has done an exceptional job in unifying the party around these critically important issues, including Israel and the platform that's been adopted at this convention exemplifies what is overwhelming democratic support for the US Israel relationship. Ebeidi s support a full funding for military. And Support of the STOORIKHEL alliance, it's the view of the majority of members of Congress that is the democratic mainstream media. So you emphasize what a majority of Democrats you certainly we've had concerns over the years about Ilan Omar had to leave. Is that kind of who you're thinking about when you say a majority of Democrats feel this way I should have said an over overwhelming majority you mentioned. Two. Members, of Congress, we currently between the House and the Senate head of over two hundred and seventy. So between those two members of Congress who we agree do not share our views on Israel and we've spoken out against them going back to before they were even elected. But between the two of them to over two seventy, we're talking about less than one percent of the Democratic members of Congress. They are very outspoken though they have expressed views with which we disagree and we've made that clear and that's why we're not supporting their re election and we don't share their views but luckily, their views are not shared by our party either look at the platform I mean the platform is the views of our candidate and the views of our Party and the platform could not be more clear in. Its support of Israel, what I the states to watch in this upcoming election and in which of those states could the Jewish vote really make a difference. When we look in elections, we always look at the last election as a baseline and we know that had Donald Trump not one Florida and either Michigan or Pennsylvania. He would not be president today and in those three states Florida Michigan and Pennsylvania. The Jewish vote alone could made up those margins. So when we looked to twenty twenty in this election, we are looking at the Jewish vote in those critically important states, my home state of Michigan Donald. Trump won by just ten, thousand, seven, hundred, and four votes. That margin could be overcome by the Jewish student population of Michigan in Michigan state a low. We are looking at the Jewish vote in those three critically important states but also states like Arizona and Colorado and Georgia, which in addition to being presidential swing states are going to be critically important in terms of the control of the Senate. Are you saying that the Jews in those swing states voted Republican or didn't vote at all did shoes in those swing states voted we know that Jewish voters do turn out and in twenty sixteen, it was no different than in previous elections choose turned out. But. We also know bat they turned out in support of Hillary. Clinton at about seventy two percents. If you look at the two thousand eighteen midterms Jewish voters supported Democrats at seventy nine percents. So we saw an increase, we believe that in twenty twenty, those numbers can continue to go up in terms of Jewish support for Democrats. So now we'll talk with your Republican counterpart on next week's episode. But from your vantage point, you said that most Jews identify with the Democratic Party why is that? So, choose have historically for decades defied overwhelmingly with the Democrats, the values that Jews hold dear tend to be those aligned with the policies supported by Democrats. So when it comes to domestic policies such as access to affordable healthcare and education ED and gun safety and ensuring that we are country welcoming the stranger and not enacting cruel and discriminatory policies toward immigrants and refugees. These are all key issues driving the Jewish vote. On those issues and more, that's where Jewish voters align with Democrats when it comes to foreign policy is well, we know that support of Israel is an issue that is important of course to Jewish voters and Mrs. Issue Where Democrats to our squarely aligned with the priority of Jewish voters, which is the support of the strong US Israel relationship, and in this election, we have a new issue. So all of those things have been constance. New issue in this election that is impacting the Jewish, vote in Support of Democrats and that is our rising insecurity as a community. We have seen an unprecedented rise in anti-semitic attacks targeting our community including the horrific attacks in Pittsburgh and Powei we know that seventy three percent of Jews feel less secure than they did years ago and over half of US blame. Donald Trump for that and that's because we've seen him embolden anti-semites white nationalist just last night he tweeted out support for an extremist group Hugh a non that has peddled conspiracy theories still on these issues especially when it comes to the security of our community. There's a clear choice in this election and Jewish especially do not believe that Donald Trump has the best interest of our community in mind he has Jewish family members. He's certainly been friendly to Israel is strengthened that relationship. So how does that square? There's no question. He has Jewish family members. He's also married and he's done said many misogynistic things. So that alone does not qualify him as what I would consider to be someone who's been particularly good for the Jewish community I look at the numbers and I look at the unprecedented rise in white nationalist propaganda or anti Semitic attack and the words that. Come out of his mouth better clear signs to anti-semites to racist to bigots that he is their ally whether it is identifying anti-semites white nationalist marching Charlottesville as very fine people or calling the extremists that marched in Michigan with swastikas very good people that was earlier this year or hiring someone recently, Sebastian Gorka who is affiliated with the Nazi party in Hungary? When it comes to Israel. Donald Trump. Has Been Long on symbolism and short on substance. Yes. He moved the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and we recognize that Jerusalem is, of course, the capital of Israel. But the substance matters and when you look at the record of Joe Biden who with President Obama finalized unprecedented historic thirty eight. DOLLAR AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL PROVIDING FOR AID for the next ten years, and you look at the security issues that Israel faces. Actually Donald. Trump has not been that great for Israel.

What Is Pi?

"Come to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio rain stuff lauren. Bo-bottle here the number referred to as pie has mesmerized mathematicians for four thousand years. It's the rarest of back medical constance and unfailingly accurate ratio. That's also never ending. The digits of Pi have been calculated out more than twenty two trillion decimal places without ever repeating a. That makes it an irrational number. The definition of Pie simple. It's the ratio of a circle circumference. That is the length around the circle divided by its diameter or at the links across the circle. But what's remarkable? Is that no matter. The size of the circle you're measuring that ratio of circumference diameter will always equal three point. One four one five nine two six five three five eight nine seven et cetera usually shortened to three point one four divide the circumference of a tennis ball by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the planet Mars by its diameter. And you get three point one four divide the circumference of the known universe by its diameter. You get the point. Pie is critical to several basic calculations geometry physics and engineering including the area of a circle which is Pie Times Square of the radius and volume of a cylinder which has pyre squared times the height of the cylinder when ancient Babylonian attempted to measure the precise area of circles back in one thousand nine hundred BC. They signed a value to pie. A three point one to five. The ancient Egyptians came up with three point one six zero five the Greek mathmetician archimedes working in the third century BC and the Chinese mathematician. Xue Changsa working in the Fifth Century. Ce ARE CO credited with calculating the most accurate approximations of Pi before Calculus and supercomputers gave us a more definitive answer. Then in seventeen o six. The self taught Welsh mathematician. William Jones assigned the Greek letter P. To this magical number without end possibly because P is the first letter of the Greek words. For periphery and perimeter symbols use was later popularized by Eighteenth Century. Spec petition Leonard Euler but wasn't adopted worldwide until nineteen thirty four. The fact that Pie can be found everywhere not only in circles but an arcs pendulums and interplanetary navigation and intimately long has inspired a cult following that includes plenty of Geeky tattoos and even its own National Holiday National Pie Day was officially recognized by the United States. Congress in two thousand nine but the definitely not square roots of the holiday can be traced back to nineteen eighty-eight and a man named Larry the Prince of Pie. Shaw Shaw was a beloved longtime employee at the exploratorium. A Science Museum in San Francisco California and came up with the idea of Pi Day on one thousand nine hundred eighty eight staff retreat following the death of exploratorium founder. Frank Oppenheimer the date for celebration. Well because the first digits of Pi Three Point one four March fourteenth or three fourteen even better march fourteenth is also Albert Einstein's birthday making Pi Day nerd doubleheader the first Pi Day celebration was nothing more than Shaw and his wife handing out slices of fruit pie and tea at one fifty nine. Pm One five nine being the three digits following three point one four but the holiday quickly gained fame in the bay area. Shaw eventually built be Pi Shrine at the exploratorium a circular classroom with a circular brass plaque at center. Every day celebration at the exploratorium ended with a colorful parade led by Shaw blasting his boombox with a remix of pomp and circumstance set to the digits of Pi and circling. The Pie Shrine. Exactly three point one four times. The parade ended with the singing of happy birthday to Albert Einstein. The prince pipe passed away in two thousand seventeen but the annual exploratorium party continues as do Pi Day celebrations. The world over popular ways to celebrate include. Baking a pie orb some kind of circular treat and holding pie recital contests the current world record for memorizing and reciting the most digits of Pi was set by Sharad Kumar Sharma of India in two thousand fifteen when he recited a staggering.
