Yeah that's the best part of us movies honestly well and that was another thing that i noticed about this movie and a lot of other year movies And also the time in which she grew up of authority figures of an institution or oftentimes seen as as the antagonised as as something that has to be overcome or they are bumbling and incompetent and annoying And i was looking at that. And he's born in sixty four and so like the movies that guillermo grew up watching especially the movies that were made in. Mexico were more of the independently.

How Does Uranus Work?
"Scientists have coined an appropriate term for the large chilly bodies like Uranus ice giants. Neptune falls into the same category. But you're in. This is quite an odd duck compared to its neighboring planet. For starters you're a spins on an extreme tilt resulting in some truly wild seasons around the polls even the ice giants name is a bit peculiar and not just because it makes school kids chuckle. Okay let's not kid ourselves. You're never too old to enjoy good year in joke. Headline Writers certainly don't thinks so if article titles like NASA wants to probe urinate in search of gas and Uranus. Smells like farts are any indication. These jokes if you're not getting them hinge on the spelling of Uranus you are an US allowing for an english-speaking mispronunciation as your anus meaning rectum that where classy puns. Aside you're in his represents a break with nomenclature old tradition mercury Venus Mars Jupiter Saturn and Neptune all took their names from Roman gods or deities however uranus uniquely was named after a Greek God in the religion of Ancient Greece. You're an was revered as the primordial God of the sky he had a son named Cronos and a perhaps more famous grandson notice Zeus. Those two figures were later conflated with two Roman Deities Saturn and Jupiter though the planet Uranus was discovered by Stromer William Herschel March thirteenth of seventeen eighty one. He didn't give it the name we use today. A loyal Britain Herschel wanted to call this far away. World Georgie 'EM CD's or Georgia Star. In honor of King George the third but by nature. That name was politically charged to avoid. Alienating non-british Stargazers German astronomer Johann Alert Buddha suggested calling the planet uranus in seventeen eighty three eventually his alternative Monica one out but back to that axial tilt a planets rotate around an axis. Which is the imaginary line connecting their northern and southern polls and they simultaneously orbit on an imaginary plane around the Sun now Earth has an axial tilt of twenty three point five degrees. This means there's a twenty three point five degree angle between Earth's axis and its plane of orbit around the Sun without the tilt our home world wouldn't have seasons or possibly life. Uranus is skewed to but to a much greater extent in relation to its orbital plane. The ice giants access has been tilted at a chopping ninety seven point seven degree angle next to Saturn and Neptune. Urine looks like it's lying on its side so what we are orientation. A computer simulation published two thousand eighteen suggests your was hit by a huge Proto Planet. Around four billion years ago then again there may have been multiple impacts or a long gone circum. Planetary Disk could have played a role however it happened. The tilt subjects both polls too long dark winters long. Bright Summer's on Uranus was orbit around the Sun or one year lasts for roughly eighty four earth years. Each poll is aimed almost directly at the Sun for about twenty one St Earth years during its summer season. Meanwhile the other pole faces the opposite direction. Enduring Alliance Dark Winter. Despite the extreme tilt urine is warmer at the equator than it is either poll. Nobody knows why. And this isn't the planets only mystery. Jupiter Saturn and Neptune already radiate more than twice as much heat as they received from the Sun. Yet you're innocence. Heat output is significantly lower. This disparity has long baffled planetary scientists as we already mentioned. You're innocent. Neptune are both ice giants planets of this sort have rocky cores covered by mantles rich. An icy half frozen slush of ammonia methane and water next up there's the atmosphere whose outer level is full of hydrogen helium and even more methane researchers found that urinalysis atmospheric clouds contain hydrogen sulfide. A compound responsible for the rotten egg stench. We all know in hate so yes. You're in literally stinks to the densest part of its atmospheric sees brutal temperatures of negative two hundred forty three to negative three hundred seventy degrees Fahrenheit. That's negative one fifty three to negative to eighteen degrees Celsius. That's hardly a welcoming environment for any future astronauts but at least the color scheme would be familiar. Earth isn't the only blue planet in the solar system. Methane absorbs red light giving Uranus and Neptune deep blue complexions of the two worlds. You're in a slightly greener since nineteen seventy seven. We've known that Ernest has a ring system around its equator to date. Astronomers have counted thirteen rings encircling the planet the structures are relatively dim and lack the fine particles observed and other rings systems like Saturn's each one is composed of debris chunks that are golf ball sized at minimum for some reason smaller material gets exiled and space between these rings in also has twenty seven known moons twenty five of which renamed after Shakespeare characters like affiliate Juliet. There's Dimona puck and Miranda who's namesake appears in the tempest geologically complex. Miranda contains the single policy cliff known to humankind dubbed Verona repays. It has an estimated height of twelve point four miles. That's twenty kilometers. Meaning that if you happened to be walking along its peak and you happened to fall off. You would plummet for twelve minutes straight before hitting the ground. Others satellites of note include sicker acts and Caliban while most of your Ennis's moons spin in the same direction as the planet does these to revolve the other way. Scientists think they were once independent objects that the ice giants gravity in snared by the way how ban is another tempest character and sicker. Iraq's was said to be his mother from it's weird rings. It's puzzling climate. You're Ennis's found plenty of ways surprises. Only time will tell what further mysteries the planet holds until then although it's very dim your is visible to the naked eye on some dark clear nights if you have sharp vision if not so much. It's easily visible with noculars or a telescope.

What's the the nature of your education system? Are you teaching children to be problem solvers or are you rewarding? What are you? Awarding them for are you rewarding them for getting the answer's right or you're rewarding them for seeing something that you did wrong. But you know, I think we've I think we're at a point now where anyone who thinks that it's just about plopping cluster together meaning to say and China has lots of these right? Let's let's have one university in the next. Let's put a little tech park and extra. Let's do this other thing and magic show happen. It doesn't always work then then last, but not least. And this is not a trivial point you need a legal system where intellectual property is protected, right? Which is a chief US complaint about operating in China Raina, right? But it's not just us firms Chinese firms themselves also want to make sure that their IP is protected. It's interesting because the communist party's main in China twenty twenty five planets received a lot of attention recently for its attempts to you know, pick and develop specific Chinese industries is that type of industrial policy successful in fostering innovation. I think it's successful in fostering market leadership. Perhaps even market domination of a given sector within the Chinese context. And also potentially allowing for firms to compete in a way that gives them an advantage in the global marketplace. So it's not necessarily the case that industrial policy equals innovation policy. Yeah. So this idea of like, creative add patient versus a truly innovative breakthrough. But at a patient, you know is innovation. I mean, you know, as at the end of the day, this sort of hacking and making it work is a kind of innovation right? And certainly if we look at Chinese companies and their ability to sort of really target mid range markets, and how successful they've been in that space. It has been because they've been able to sort of make that those those adaptations that are targeted to our particular customer. They're trying to sell to. So it's it's not that China made in twenty twenty five has not succeeded in many ways it has. But that in an insane China the leading innovator in the world today. I think that we have to be a little bit more cautious on that front. Regina balmy at the Wharton school of business. Professor Rami made an important distinction. She said this isn't about the capacity of the Chinese people to be innovative. It's about the context and system they have to innovate within. Now for some related links. Professor brownie wrote an article called why China can't innovate in the Harvard. Business review back in two thousand fourteen much of that still applies today this China Morning Post had a couple of recent articles on China's intellectual property articles how they could be strengthened to meet US demands in the ongoing trade war and foster innovation the number of intellectual property rights cases in China increased more than forty percent last year and finally on the theme of creative thinking, there's this quantum magazine story from two thousand seventeen I just keep going back to it's about a retired statistician who solved a math proof others had struggled with for more than fifty years.

Questioned three. This is our last question. So Anthony, would you like to read this last one? Can't stop making sounds for the past year or two been randomly making noises usually constant whistling or making straining. I'm perfectly aware that I'm making these sounds such. However, I just can't stop anyone have any idea. Anyone have an idea how to stop or what it is? People are starting to think I'm weird. Sincerely, noise that annoy noise that annoys in illinois's. We made you sail. Annoys? Oh, damn it. That's okay. I look like an idiot. It's all right. All not at it out too. So you can. But the. But I am. No. But you know, what they also know Anthony how much you care, and that's what's really important. They only care about how much you care. That's all that's really important. Okay.

So you're making noises. Okay. So you got some constant whistling. That's annoying. Gonna stand like, you just you can you not control your body. That is weird the straining the whistling. I I get the whistling. We've we've all had our whistle phase where we just like. And people are like shut up and then like, okay. And then we stop. So it kinda get that straining noises.

Now, he's straining pasta, bro. Those. I can't do a pasta Kyle partners. That's not a pasta. That's that's back to this Merce sucking Dicks again. I have to say I do make straining noises and two situations in which I've started to notice, and it makes me feel really old one is whenever I get into a car whenever I get into a car. I kinda just throw myself in there because I can't slowly crouch down. I don't know if it's the fact that I'm really tall or that. I'm just getting super old and my muzzles can't support me doing a squat. So I just grabbed the top. And I swing myself in hope for the best and ago. And then. The violence of it. All you're just swinging in like a rag tag. Your flight. I feel like I just have to use that general that momentum. I have to build it up with that swing or else. I'm just not going to get in.

Visit Lenovo dot com slash SM be powered by Intel. Today, yet another plan to save the media with technology from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. In the last week alone. Digital media outlets have laid off hundreds of people the publishers of USA today are fighting off a takeover attempt from a hedge fund the Washington Post actually ran a Super Bowl ad about. How important journalism is but subscriptions don't make enough money and ads are annoying data sucking and don't even work most of the time. Enter tech, Jim mckelvey is the co founder of the payments and processing giants square. He's got a start up called invisibly. That's part micro payments where you pay for individual articles and part Aztec where you the reader can earn free articles by trading more data you could choose to pay for no ads at all or strike a balance somewhere in the middle. Mckelvey told me the whole point is control. It's never been free. You've always paid for. But you've paid for it with your attention. And it's usually frustrating because you don't have any control over how your eyeballs are bought and sold and they're being sold hundreds of times a day without your permission or knowledge. So here's the deal. You don't have to do anything differently. If you want us to just manage this for you. We will. But if you wanna take control over how your tensions bought and sold will give you that control. So for instance, you're live in New York don't tell me a pickup truck because I'm in New York. I'm not gonna buy a pickup truck. I don't need one here. That piece of information is valuable and any piece of information. You give does two things for you. First of all, it increases the relevance of the products that are pitched to you because you're gonna buy some things. But more importantly, it increases the value of your eyeballs. So you are getting paid more per second of attention or I can just buy my way out of it directly. And skip the tailoring process. Absolutely. Yeah. However, you want to engage. It's interesting. It sounds like your making an argument that I should have more control of my data. But there's a version of this that also sounds like I still give over a lot of data to individual sites yet. And it's completely up to you. What you wanna do? So in our system from complete anonymity, which by the way will change the price of somebody for content. So for instance, one of our publishers will sell you an article for a. Quarter cent if they know who you are and that same article could cost three cents if they don't know because they're getting value out of your data as well. They want to know who their readers are. So it sounds like if it really was embedded into a lot of different sites. It would become a large real time experiment and trying to determine what how much people actually do value their privacy, which I think we're all trying to figure out right this moment. And there's no one answer for one person. So for instance, there times, I value my privacy a lot there times. I don't I'm about to buy a bunch of couches. If the couch manufacturers are the world knew I was about to spend several thousand bucks on couches. They would send adds to me that I would love to see right now. But the problem is in the current ecosystem have no way of signaling that and the worst cases I buy a couch, and then they find out I bought one. And then for the next three months. I get chased by couch commercials. It's really backwards and messed up right now. And we're not saying we're gonna fix it all at once. But we're saying that we're going to do this on behalf of the people whose information is the currency. Give me control of how I spend my attention. Just as I have control over. How I spend the dollars in my wallet. Jim mckelvey is the CEO of invisibly, which is launching whenever it's ready. He told me the company is in. No hurry. Thanks to venture capital his own money. And he says the support of most major media outlets. But I bet they're hoping he'll hurry up. And now for some related links on Monday, Facebook, CEO, Mark Zuckerberg posted a letter to celebrate the platforms fifteenth anniversary, and it is a very interesting read. We have a link to it at our website. Marketplace tech dot org. You can also find it on Facebook. Obviously, what's interesting in the context of this conversation about the future of media is that Zuckerberg is sort of taken the position that what Facebook is doing is up ending the traditional institutions that used to control your access to information, and that now the internet with Facebook at its core is setting all that information free. But the media and people who are afraid of change only wanna focus on the negative to those people. He says, you are wrong and society is becoming more open in accountable because of these new networks and Facebook, which is like I said very interesting because on the one hand. Yes technology marches on there was moral hand-wringing in the extreme about the democratization of language about radio about television in. Yes about the internet. But I would argue that as much as Berg may think otherwise Facebook is not the internet. Facebook does not behave the way that disruptive new networks might behave in a vacuum because Facebook is a company it's incentive is to make money. Senator. We run ads the internet is an incredibly disruptive and democratizing and polarizing force. And everything's Coburg says about Facebook that you can find a like minded community that you could keep in touch with faraway friends that you could organize protests that you could advertise a business all of that can happen on the internet with or without Facebook. And none of that necessarily makes Facebook immune from questions about the ads. Right. But then again, let's be fair. What else is he going to say, he's the CEO of a business? I'm Molly would.

Scientists pretty real though. I'm not gonna lie from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. They the impossible burger two point. Oh arrives in restaurants around the country. The company impossible foods won all kinds of best of CAS awards at the big tech show in Las Vegas last month for creating a plant based meat replacement that smells tastes and looks like real beef. I tried version one point zero at my neighborhood burger place in Oakland. And I admit it's pretty close. There's also all kinds of science going into growing meat from real meat sells LaRussa Rudin co is a biotechnology expert and visiting scholar in emerging technology at MIT, she says climate, change animal, welfare and human health are all driving huge investment in meat replacement technologies. So mcq plant side, we've probably have hundreds of millions of dollars pouring in from various sources, including some of the companies going public and some of the big ones have valuations in the low billions of dollars the clean need space is a little bit behind it in. Terms of funding, but I would say easily that the funding has been in the tens of millions of dollars may be approaching hundreds of millions. What do you think what challenges might come up as some of these technologies and efforts start to scale so some of the potential downstream ripple effects? If you will are what are the components that go in what what is the supply chain? Like where are we going to get the ingredients that go into culturing, these cells heart of the downstream values based affects is what's going to happen to the people who currently are ranchers are farmers. So well, it seems like it makes a ton of environmental sense to switch over completely as with every technology. Right. It has a lot of unintended consequences. It does have unintended consequences and part of the bid about unintended consequences is that you don't always know what they're going to be. And I think one of the goals here is to have scandal up. That's. Affordable. So that this doesn't just become food for rich people, and that it instead provides food for everyone at what point do you think? I mean, it's hard to predict. But at what point do you think that tipping point could occur? I think it's really going to be depending on on the technology. That's used to scale up and to ensure that you can get the price point down to a reasonable level. And the way to do this is not necessarily an immediate switch from one to the other. But rather a series of little steps where we slowly start moving from traditional ways of providing high protein food to people to more novel ways, but not necessarily in one single jump. Lewis Rudin co is a visiting scholar in emerging technology at MIT now if you wanna compare plant based burgers beyond meat and other meat replacement company as burger in Carl's junior as of last month called the beyond fair. Famous star burger blind taste test. Anyone I would get it. I will get it again. And now for some related links venture capital investment in food tech is up into the rights over the last five years or so according to the analytics firm CB insights as of mid twenty eighteen food and drinks startups had raised about nine and a half billion dollars. And there are new venture capital funds popping up dedicated just to investing in food tech like stray dog capital, new crop, capital, and Tara capital and big food companies are also creating corporate funds last October the Kraft Heinz company launched one hundred million dollar venture capital fund to invest in food tech, Tyson Foods and the Campbell Soup company. Also have funds or investment in emerging technology lake meat replacement, but also in things like tracing the food supply chain for safety purposes. And actually, even though we talk a lot about what I like to call Petri meat when it comes to beef experts told us that coming up with fish replacement is almost more urgent raising. And feeding cattle is really terrible for the environment. But overfishing is a crisis. Like, we're running out of fish right now. The Wall Street Journal had a good story last fall about attempts to create fish alternatives using everything from tomatoes for a sushi like product called he me to eggplant carrots and root vegetables mixed with p protein.

What might help Apple sell more iPhones? Cheaper iPhones

Visit WWW dot Lenovo dot com slash S M B powered by Intel. Hey, you know, what might help apple sell more phones cheaper iphones from American public media? This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Apple released its earnings yesterday afternoon. And although it met its lowered expectations revenue from phones was down. Fifteen percent over the same quarter last year and the future trend is also down for years. Apple smartphone strategy has been to make premium devices with a premium price tag, a thousand bucks is basically the starting price for a new flagship iphone, but those prices are hard to swallow in China and India markets apple is depending on to grow. It's global market share. And even here in the US consumers just aren't upgrading their phones as much as they used to duly. Ask is principal analyst at Forrester research. I asked her if apple can keep commanding such high prices, they've relied on a very fluid base of consumers in the past that could afford to buy not only devices, but services and subscriptions within the ecosystem. And I think one of the things it's hard to tell. I think one of the things they're not gonna tell us is it inhibiting their ability to attract new consumers into the ecosystem. Yeah. It's interesting because it feels like. It was a strategy based on sort of an old economic model of ongoing recovery where you know, if you tie it to the broader economy, it was based on the idea that there'd be an economic recovery in wages would continue to go up and there'd be lots of consumer spending. And we're kind of not seeing that. Yeah. So we're not seeing that. And I think if you look at the opportunities for growth, it's either get the same people to upgrade faster or it's attract new consumers into your market. And you look at who those new consumers are and they're simply not as a flu inter as wealthy as the existing base there. Either young or they're living in markets where there's lower wages overall. I think the trouble with these large. Consumer electronics companies is is the smartphone came along at this time. And it's been like an amazing amazing ten to fifteen year right at this point. But there isn't like another it devices that's coming after it. That's going to make up for the revenue with the slower replacement cycles and the slower uptake from consumers in the market today. So what do you think comes next? I mean, some manufacturers are sort of bucking this trend. Oneplus is going with a cheaper phone is that overly simplistic as an answer or would cheaper phones. Help sell more phones if I were smartphone manufacturer, I would test the market with less expensive devices. And Molly I say that based on someone who studies consumer behavior the devices that are selling now in the market for a thousand dollars eleven hundred twelve hundred dollars are amazing for photography and playing video games and watching TV and when we see five G come out. It's going to be awesome. That said the vast majority of the activity that consumers are doing on these phones, it's still around communication instant messaging, texting my friends triaging, Email for work. And I don't need the latest greatest device to do that. And so I think it is reasonable to expect the consumers will say, hey, how do I really use this device, and do I really need something that caused the thousand twelve hundred dollars to triage, my Email, duly ask is principal analyst at poster research. Ch- according to the motley fool apple shipments were down ten percent in China in the third quarter of last year and down fifty percent in India over twenty eighteen. And now for some related links. We talk a lot about the Chinese market. But India is huge for smartphone makers shipments almost doubled between two thousand fourteen and twenty eighteen to one hundred and fifty million phones according to analysts and ZD net report out of New Delhi says that for a few years apple was selling its older models in India for low prices, which wasn't that thrilling because we're talking about the iphone five c here people. But then apple started pushing more expensive bones sometimes even selling models for more than they were selling for in the US that didn't fly either. And it happened just as Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi and one plus came into India with super cool tricked out smartphones that were half the price of the iphone. So you could have a heck of old iphone for the same price as brand new flagship smartphone from one plus easy choice. The one plastics was released in India in twenty. Eighteen ziti net. Says its old a million units in twenty two days for comparison apple sold one point seven million units in India in all of twenty eighteen combined and on a completely different note. I totally missed that earlier this month the department of defense released a document about a twenty two million dollar program by the Defense Intelligence Agency. That was researching warp drives invisibility cloaks wormholes star gates an alien tracking. I mean say what you want about government spending. But this is how we got the internet. Also, apparently, according to an old blog post, I found about secret military projects the CIA once tried putting listening devices on house cats, not every idea is a hit you guys. But I'm holding out hope for the wormholes. I'm Molly would and that's marketplace tech.

But all your friends there sieves from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm jed Kim in for. Molly would. Social media was invented to keep up with friends. But if you're fed up with data leagues and privacy concerns. Maybe you quit turns out social media may not even need you to know you because your friends and their posts are pretty good indicators of who you are in a new study scientists took to Twitter they found people who interacted regularly and pick some users by analyzing the tweets of just eight or nine of a user's friends, they could predict the kinds of things the original user would post gym bag grow teaches math and statistics at the university of her Mont. He led the study. So the is that if I have a lot of information about you as a user writing on Twitter than I should be pretty good at those types of predictions. And so if we're able to make those kinds of predictions with some level of success, then the same machinery that we built to make those predictions. We can also plug various words into that. And try to see how likely is it that you would say those words, so for example, what's the probability that you'll say? The word Republican or you'll say the words Dallas Cowboys. So the ability to make those predictions, essentially means that we've created a kind of language model tailored to your voice. And then at least in principle, we could use that language model to derive these kind of profiling attributes is there a real world kind of utility for this ability like how might this idea be used by tech companies have a lot of our data. Well, I think that the primary use of this is targeting advertising making the ads more relevant to users. So that they're more effective. And so that they can sell them for a higher price. And I think that these companies Facebook Twitter, Google, they're putting enormous resources into artificial intelligence and machine learning for exactly that purpose. My initial reaction to something automatically profiling is on terror. What implications does your study Hafer how we think about social media if we're concerned about privacy, and we want to use. Us say Facebook or Twitter, or we don't want to use it maybe because of our concerns I think a lot of people treat that as kind of an individual choice. It's my data. I don't mind them having access to it. If it means I can use the platform and make very clear decision to do that. I think that's know, making an informed decision as good idea. What our research is showing? However is that that's not necessarily true as an individual choice. If I choose to use one of these platforms, and I'm giving it useful information about myself. Then our research suggests that in principle. I'm also giving it useful information about my friends. And so my decision to use the platform is also potentially affecting them as well.

Are we seeing that Brian weezer focuses on media and advertising is a senior analyst at pivotal research group? He says people are actually piling on more and paying more. There are certainly people who have chosen to eliminate their traditional cable service and solely rely on over the top services. But that's a minority of the population. The majority are maintaining their existing services and they're adding. New services. All right. So Disney is starting streaming service. Warner media is getting into it too. You know, economic principles with all this competition. And that mean, better prices for consumers. I don't know why more services would mean better prices. If consumers are exhibiting a willingness to pay which they are in life or business. We don't make decisions because they're good or bad. We make them because they're better than the next pestle turn if the next best alternative, I might suggest when it comes to video base entertainment is going out seeing other human beings spending money on a babysitter as well. The cost of going out is substantially more expensive for most people then the cost of paying for another video streaming service. And when you look at it in that sense, it's actually cheaper on the overall pocketbook of a household. And I think that's helps explain why. Why there is sustained increase in total spending on video based products will stick you with money. What about advertising because these a lot of these streaming services don't feature advertising, so broadcast TV still reaches almost everyone across almost every age group. Right. So broadcast television has retained if not expanded its relative value to advertisers. Because if you do cut the cord, or if you've never had multi tail service, you almost certainly have access to broadcast TV, right? You put Brad here's. And so two extent that advertisers can still reach more people with a campaign that runs on network TV then on essentially any other medium in a world. Where reach is the first metric that you use to assess where you should prioritize. Is your campaigns network? TV hold up. Pretty well. Bryan weezer is a senior analyst at pivotal research group. I asked him how many streaming services he personally uses only two which seemed honestly kind of low to me. I mean, I'm knee deep in stars right now. But he says beyond Netflix, Amazon and Hulu subscriptions fall off a cliff. We'll see what happens with Disney. I'm jed Kim. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM Patrick in Santa Cruz.

I'm Ali would. In twenty eighteen ICO's or initial coin offerings were the hot new thing in startup fundraising. Accompany could raise money by selling you, a little bit of value or equity in the form of digital coin. That is kind of like a bitcoin but specific to that company ICO's raised something like twenty two billion dollars in two thousand eighteen we think it's hard to know because the whole practice was totally unregulated. A lot of ICO's turned out to be scams. The SEC started finding celebrities like Floyd, Mayweather and DJ Calot over sketchy paid promotions for ICO's. It got a little weird. And now, it's regulation time. And that means that future ICO's and their digital coins might start to look a lot more like good old fashioned stock except traded on the blockchain, and that has big ramifications for Wall Street, Kristen howls, a partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. She helps companies create an ICO the SEC started to really crack down on this last year large. Really, I think because of massive fraud and theft and with this action people that have had to shift their pro choice to this ICO two point. Oh, also called a security token offering where they split this token idea into two things they issue stock as part one of this. And then part two is they may be they don't have to go. Have this token that does everything but stock and so on the first part of that it's issuing stock in blockchain form, and then it will trade on the blockchain. So that you would buy and sell it as though you were buying bitcoin. But in this case, it would be, you know, Kristen coin. Yes. And no, so yes, in the sense that you will buy and sell on an exchange, but you won't buy and sell these on the current exchanges that trade, for instance, bitcoin and all these other tokens that are still out there because those exchanges are not licensed trade securities. So a lot of really big players, including Goldman Sachs, and NASDAQ and a whole bunch of other people are in the process of building token security exchanges. Interesting. So I'm hearing you say this, and it sounds like there's functionally no difference between trading secure token and trading. A stock accept the possibility that the company itself is not technically public. There's a couple of things there. So on the trading side. I would go out on a limb to predict that all-stock will be traded in some way related to blockchain or or whatever the next best technology is because it's superior to what we're. Doing. Now, you can have a lot better transparency in the market in two stock pricing volume. You could also potentially eliminate some of the metal people where you don't actually need all these these folks in the middle, which of course, brings the resistance to change because broker dealers and others have a vested interest in a system, but we can have a much more seamless actually transparent stock trading mechanism using blockchain Kristen howls partner with the law firm, FOX Rothschild. Now, the SEC has clearly said it thinks digital tokens from companies are securities, but it hasn't issued any formal rules. Just yet. And now for some related links. What's kind of doubly interesting about this idea of ICO's going legit as these so-called security tokens and potentially changing the way Wall Street works, and maybe even becoming the future of stock trading. Is that kind of everything about bitcoin and the blockchain was conceived to be just the opposite of all of that. And the bitcoin community feels that part of what really killed the ICO. Yes. In addition to the scams and the fraud, which everyone admits where a problem was the threat of regulation, which is what we're now seeing and that in fact, that's kind of a bad thing because I see os were a much more democratic way for potential startups to raise money, they didn't have to go through venture capital, which has all these problems with access and diversity geography, and of course, centralization and now the same old gatekeepers get to keep all the power. There's a good piece on bitcoin is about this. I would encourage you to read it. Find it on our website. Marketplace tech dot org and not for nothing. The blockchain economic forum is happening this week in Davos, Switzerland alongside the World Economic Forum and security token offerings is the topic of a roundtable discussion on the very first night.
