One in particular says. Let's see if we can really automate the argument. And the whole notion of the argumentation was also looking at says it you know, how can I? Better. Measure or better understand the structure of the arguments themselves. Ah. What's relevant? What's not and this is this is the reason we do that. Then a very simple very simple idea is this is that if I know the structure, I, know the impact of the argument on the structure that if we know that whether a particular argument is true or false. That tells us something very easy potentially where the say something state newsroom. This this is work in progress. This is one of our hypotheses going forward, but I think it's something that you know Bear, lot of fruit just at least based on some of our initial stuff. sounds fascinating.

How to read those unemployment numbers
"Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal. It is the twenty first of May today as always to have you along everybody and we begin on Thursday. I think. Actually this is the eighth or ninth Thursday in a row with yet another staggering report on people filing for unemployment benefits in this economy. Two point four million people this week down yes from a week ago but still basically the entire population of Houston Texas. Now which need to know though. Is that those weekly unemployment claims. Come in two varieties marketplace's Nancy Marshall Genzer gets us going with the difference between the two and why that difference matters initial jobless claims are how many new people file for unemployment benefits in a week. Continuing claims measured the total number of workers on unemployment. Erica gration the former head of the Bureau of Labor. Statistics says think of it like a bathtub. The initial claims is how much water is flowing into the bathtub and the continuing claims is how much water is in the bathtub. Each numbers important Chris. Rupp key chief. Financial economist at the Global Financial Group G follows both well. That's why God gave us to do. Is You have to watch both that. Rookie says when he wants to tease out underlying trends that continuing claims numbers more important. Because the minute the total number of people receiving unemployment starts to come down. That's the key signal that the labor markets improving the continuing jobless claims numbers will play a key role in whether the post corona virus recovery. Looks like the or you. Meaning the economy improves quickly. Or is flatter like an L. Dartmouth College Economists Patricia Anderson will be watching that if the continuing claim start falling. Fairly rapidly than. That's good signs that we might be more. U shaped than l-shaped Anderson says if the continuing jobless claims just keep plodding along at about the same rate. That's not a sign that we're really turning the corner. I'm Nancy Marshall Genzer for marketplace
Don't Try To Be Great
"In his book. Based on a commencement speech he gave at Dartmouth College in twenty eleven. Charles Wheel tells a story about how he was once a guest on a news program hosted by Chicago journalist Phil Ponts now the show is filmed live. So of course if you mess up or say something you regret there are no do overs. They're only hundreds of thousands of pairs of eyes watching. You do whatever it is you did or say whatever it is you said polished or not just before airtime Charles the writer recalls how. He was feeling right before. He said he was nervous. Self-conscious in hoping to impress in that very moment fill. The host leaned over with just thirty seconds to live and said these words. Charles never forgot. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and in it. Charles Leland writes this. That simple advice had a profound effect. Because I knew I could be solid. That was within my control. I could just talk about what I know. I could answer questions candidly. I could have a fun and interesting conversation with other guests. I might have some fun. Equips I might not. Phil's advice was liberating because it removed the pressure to deliver what I wasn't certain I could deliver and it made me better at doing what I knew I could again. The book is called ten and a half things. No commencement speaker has ever said and don't try to be great. Is thing ten and a half like many of you? I've been thinking a lot about this class of twenty twenty both like I said the high school graduates college graduates to in addition to all of the end of year events. This graduating classes either missing out on her having to modify because of the pandemic the truth remains they're still graduating. They are moving into the world of grownups and the expectations in this world can be while extreme to say the very least. This world is filled with people who are trying to be great in the same way. I hope doing the next great thing is a kind of phrase for graduates to hold onto. I think Philpott he gave to Charles. Leland seems like a relief as well. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. It's not the message we usually hear after all the phrase is greatest of all time not solid est of all time or does that even mean to be solid years ago. I listened to an interview with author Philly Anderson who by the way is also a real life dear friend of ours here. North Carolina but in the interview Phil shared about his thirty year. Friendship with author and priest Brennan Manning in that interview Phil says this about Brennan Guy who's famous for what he has to say yet. What I remember most about him was how he sat and listened. He touched my life with his kindness. To fill. Brennan was solid. Another story comes to mind about Brennan himself one that he told his book souvenirs of solitude and it was about how years ago after a difficult phone call he had. He left his home. He was distracted and he had an appointment. That day. To give a talk to the inmates of Trenton State prison when he stood up there in front of the inmates he had been distracted. Like I said right before. He got up there so without stopping to think about his surroundings. His first words of greeting to the inmates were well. It's nice to see so many of you here when I read that statement. I tip my head back and laughed out loud all by myself mainly though I recognized how Brennan responded to his own words he wrote. I'm frequently not inform on top or in control. This is part of my poverty. As a human being and self acceptance without self concern simply expresses a reality he writes an impoverished spirit prevents the poor man from becoming a tyrant to himself. Brand was not anxious shocked or even much concerned about this misstep in front of the inmates. Instead he had a light heart about it if he had been trying to be great that day. This mistake would have crushed him instead. He showed up solid which meant there was room to make a mistake and to move on without crumbling. We try to great. We risk becoming a tyrant to ourselves when things don't go the way planned one final quote and then I'll be done Dallas. Willard writes about the misunderstood phrase that we find in the Bible about dying to self he says in this is a quote when we see people dominated by their lust for glory or insisting that there will be done we will be in a position where we can be very firm in not cooperating with them even if their loved ones when we live in the shepherd sufficiency and died to ourselves. We become the most firmly established people in the world. That quote is from his book. Life Without lack the most firmly established people in the world so class of twenty twenty. Don't try to be great. Just be solid. Be Solid in the way you live in your house until the next phase begins in the way you hang out with your family your choice to laugh instead of roll your eyes in the way you choose to listen to your younger siblings. Who will miss you more than they can possibly say. Or put into words be solid with how you enter into your next experience not like a tourist who watches from behind a camera lund's and insists all of your usual comforts are close at hand and not like an expert who thinks she's supposed to know everything as best you can enter into your new situation ready to be fully present and engaged when you can and free to withdraw when it's necessary be solid enough to be boring if you're trying to be great you might not notice the people and the margins your neighbors who are working twice as hard for half as much. If you're trying to be great you might be tempted to bend the truth to get ahead. So just be solid honest simple and you

"You can't tell g story without telling Dartmouth College Story. Dartmouth was really the Institution Matt. Handed time sharing to Ge as both use of those computers and as a way of doing business dartmouth at a very young mathematics department in the late fifty s and early nineteen sixties and several of the faculty including John. Kennedy and Thomas Kurtz had experienced in computing and saw computing as a way to attract really bright math and science students to the college by Nineteen. Sixty two you. They were ready to propose time sharing to the National Science Foundation to get funding to actually build a campus wide and eventually New England Wide Computing Network. That was efficient for the user. They really thought that computing would be a necessary skill for their students in the coming decades. And they saw time sharing as the form of computing that would enable all of their students to gain computing experience and that was revolutionary. That was something that was really not done anywhere else. At the time even at a place like mit which also implemented time sharing or Carnegie Mellon the users were primarily the scientists and engineers whereas at Dartmouth which was a liberal arts college. The users were nearly all of the student bodies have regardless of area of study or previous experience. When Kennedy and Kurtz who were the math professor's leading this project review proposals and really it was the two twenty five in combination with the data net. Thirty that. They saw the way to implement time sharing. They knew the two twenty five would quickly be upgraded. There were already plans for the two thirty five but it was really that combination of the Dana Net. Thirty which could be used to sort of stop the clocks so to speak and enable communications between users and the mainframe to twenty five or to thirty five that the Dartmouth people sort of latched onto in the early nineteen sixty s mainframe. Computers are so expensive that G. E. TO twenty-five computer cost about two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Actually as delegation from DARTMOUTH WENT TO G in Phoenix hoping to create a partnership with G. E. saying we the faculty and students. Dr Will Create this time sharing system for you if you give us a two twenty five an Edina net thirty for free. Ge declined that offer but they did give the college a substantial discount. I believe it was a sixty percent discount on the machines. General Electric delivered the two twenty five and the data at thirty two dartmouth in March of nineteen sixty four and two undergraduate students acquired responsibility for actually programming and implementing time sharing using those two computers. Their names were John. Itchy and Michael Bush so Jon. Hagey acquired responsibility for the two twenty five and Michael. Bush had programming ownership on the demon at thirty so they had to figure out how to make their respective machines communicate with each other and they took ownership of those responsibilities in not the machines were known as McGee and Bush and the young men were known as two twenty five and thirty. The two of them took this terribly. Personally it wasn't John's machine and Mike's Machine it was John and Mike who were not responding and they would stand at opposite ends of the room and yell at each other at the top of their voices so I think that's the soul of that machine as these two college students who are so immersed in their enthusiasm for making time sharing work that they become the machines and their personal efforts actually enable literally hundreds of thousands of not millions of other students to access competing in the nineteen sixty s via basic time sharing once it was implemented and New Hampshire those students. Some of them actually went to explain what they had done to the GE engineers and very soon after that GE started marketing time sharing as best and a feature of its computers. Ge sells off. Its ME frame. Business in one thousand nine hundred seventy but it retains its time sharing business for at least another decade well into the nineteen eighties and continues to provide time sharing service to individuals and businesses around the world Over the course of several
Peak Misery And The Happiness Curve
"Okay. Why don't we start with your name? And what you you David. blanchflower professor of economics at Dartmouth College and there was a period there. Were you served on the Bank of England. Yes in two thousand six. Six Golden Brown called me up and said Don. I wanted you to go to the Bank of England I said Oh okay And I want you to come to the really seriously. Ah So so. Monetary policy clearly is one of your specialties. How did you get into the sort of world of happiness and and in midlife crises? So what does the Central Bank you care about Central Bank as Aboud interest rates inflation unemployment growth. But they're into people don't care about that they care about how it impacts their wellbeing so I started to think about ultimately What impacts impacts their wellbeing so I actually have a paper? Brian Look at Tommy. Inflation and unemployment impact people's happiness so in a sense those things are intermediate goods. What we really do care about a people's happiness so I go to it and then I started to realize the patterns in the data while guests here high unemployment high I am happiness is absolutely right and so what I found was one of the big results from this is a one percentage point increase in unemployment has a big effect on people's happiness? So that's some of the stuff that I've been doing like really basic question is I mean obviously I know how we measure unemployment but how how did you go about measuring wellbeing. Like how do you measure happiness. Feels like that would have been a challenge at the start of this research absolutely So it turns out that there are many many many many many surveys around the world that actually ask people directly. How happy are you so sometimes they say in literally how happy I you on a scale of one to ten? How satisfied with your life? I you so these schools. Well the first thing. Is that the patterns in these data. When you ask this you pretty much get the same results? Every time most people are pretty happy very few people very unhappy and the same fluid ounces occur on it but I think what what you you would say. Why does this matter when it turns out? This is currently with things so happy people heal faster they live longer healthier so you you are are in the world of central banking. You get interested in happiness and well-being And then in two thousand seven you you release this. The sort of paper a had a huge impact on a lot of people. So can you kind of sort of set the scene. Two thousand seven. What was that paper? I started to work with number colleagues leagues on trying to think about these patterns. In happiness data and three things stood out the first one we just talked about that unemployment impacts it impacts happiness being married impacts it but one of the things we saw very easily so in the data was that happiness is high. When you're a young is high when you're old but this trough in the middle so this this you shake so this is what drove it? I'm particularly interested in deepening case. Talk about deaths of despair and particularly we seem a crisis in America suicides especially in drug poisoning deaths amongst the prime age in particular not prime age less educated folk. And there's that issue around the world so that's so that was really kind of the starting point I've done this study of one hundred thirty the two countries and what I find when average all together in advanced countries The the the the deer. If you like the low point of this happiness it is forty seven and when you do it for developing countries that got nine hundred five developing countries that do before very similar about forty eight point six so around forty eight That seems to be right. And what's interesting over the last couple of weeks. I've been talking a lot about lots of people. Call me and tweet it to me and and so on and said wow that really fits my life. So you've you've talked about this a little bit but I'd love to get like really specific. So what is it that that is causing. I do think I mean like what is it about I guess it was at forty seven point to you What is it what is going on that? That's making people unhappy at that age. Well I think if you look back. I'm a professor so I've lots of young people I teach these young folks And then they left home when they come through the university and they suddenly realize there's more than one way to cook an egg but all of that is pretty dumb tough especially these days where student loans and having to try and buy a house. What are you going to do with all of that stuff? This is really hard but I mean in the sense. What's interesting about it is this phenomena phenomenon appears to be true everywhere? It's not unique to Germany Japan the US and Canada African countries. You see it in Latin America seating Thailand highland so I think it's something that's the people the people are experiencing and then eventually I think eventually I think what happens is people get real. I mean some of the work have written said when you get to meet fifty you your aspiration start to become real when I was talking to you. You're in the Florida mangroves and yes and you write fishing right and that day you caught a fish right the was it again. It was a it was a twenty eight inch twenty pound redfish toward and and you so you sent me this picture. It's a picture of just for listeners. Out There WanNA picture You're just beaming. You still have your security. I have to say this professor blanchflower so We publish this article Ray and it goes on the web and twitter being witter. I had somebody are- tweet at me. And they said this. How are we supposed to trust any of this switch? Flower guys work when he blatantly lies about fishing that Royd ride nowhere near twenty pounds eight to ten pounds so any respond here. I mean I mean the question. It doesn't really rely the size of the faith. which is what I said relies on the fact that I looked awfully happy? You happy. You're on the you're on the upward swing of your happiness curve. We're on yes I've come to see my action sir. My son having a wedding party. Today's Louisiana but your children bring you joy. The grandkids life life improves.
United States Can't Arbitrarily Impose Tariffs, Despite Mnuchin's Threats

We have a deal, folks
"Ladies and gentlemen we have a deal what exactly the. US MCA is going to be from American public media. This is marketplace in Los Angeles. I'm Kai Ryssdal is Tuesday today. The tenth of December is always to have you along everybody. This was quite a day I mean yes sure that other story very big news but to those for whom the economy is our concern also so big. After a couple of days rumors house. Democrats announce this morning they have come to terms with the trump administration on the new NAFTA The US Mexico Canada agreement by name. It's been a bit more than a year since the deal was originally signed so on the theory that perhaps the details have faded from memory. Marketplace's Merrill Sagarra has this refresher fresher one of the long standing. Criticisms of NAFTA is that destroyed a lot of US manufacturing jobs. The treaty allowed Mexico to export products to the US. duty-free but wages are lower in Mexico. Doug Irwin teaches economics at Dartmouth college or what happened after that allow. US companies moved their assembly implants to Mexico so if you lost assembly jobs the original version of the US MCA tried to address that problem. It required Mexico to protect workers right to unionize and to increase wages for at least some Mexican Auto Workers Democrats wanted more than that. One thing was for Mexico to promise that conditions would improve establish Florida's messy as teaches government at Cornell but another thing was for those conditions to truly improve for the government to monitor conditions in factories. To make sure that whatever new regulations were in place would also be enforced. He says Democrats proposed that the US should be allowed to send inspectors turn into Mexican factories. Mexico said no but in this new version of the deal Mexico did agree to allow panel of experts to make sure it's following the rules. It's not clear exactly how that will work. You know it'll be interesting to see what exactly under which conditions these panels can be convened and who brings these cases another sticking point for Democrats the original deal would have given pharmaceutical companies ten years to exclusively make certain kinds of drugs. Christopher Sands is a senior research professor at Johns Hopkins so it means ten years in which generic copies cannot be made of drug. I think a lot of Democrats. The House saw this as really over the top especially since drug prices have been on the rise that part of the US is gone. Now and Democrats have also added some environmental rules. I'm Maryelle Cigar for marketplace. Honestly the first thing. I thought of this morning when I heard the news was apple's specifically glee Washington state apples from the Yakima Valley. My first reaction was a little bit of relief. Mostly that seems like we've cleared that a hurdle. That's Patrick. Smith are apple in hops farmer up in the North West the hurdle of course being no free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico his two biggest export markets for the apple industry here in Washington state. It was tens of millions of dollars of exports that were lost in the twenty eighteen crop. Not only because of the possibility of no more Nafta but also because of retaliatory tariffs from Canada and Mexico that sent his exports down thirty percent last year. Getting a deal. That would kind of clear all that out of the way and go back to some sort of stated normalcy is is really good the thing for us a state of normalcy under the US MCA no tariffs on his apple. Exports to Mexico and Canada. Just like under NAFTA but we're not making any big decisions really on the basis of US MCA or anything. We're still kind of in wait and see mode in cautiously optimistic for For improvements in in trade relations Patrick Smith up at the family farm loftus ranches in Washington. State still going.

U.S. trade deficit hits 10-year high in 2018 on record imports
"Is an observation to be made here as we get going with the big picture economic news of the day. Which is of course, this morning's report from the good people at the Commerce Department that our trade deficit, President Trump's favorite economic indicator. You might remember. Anyway, it grew last year to a record six hundred twenty one billion dollars. That is we imported six hundred twenty one billion dollars more stuff goods and services than we sold abroad. Here. Then is the observation that for all of those hard earned American dollars. We send overseas we get stuff in return their goods and services other countries make that we want so we buy them global trade, the often overlooked point, though, is that the trade deficit isn't some kind of profit and loss statement for the American economy report card, and it's not in and of itself a cause for concern. In fact, the trade gap last year was largely. Driven by a strong domestic economy. Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson gets us going. President Trump talks about the trade deficit kind of a lot. We have a trade deficit with almost every country in the we have a massive trade deficit with everybody. But which aging we racked up trillions of dollars in trade deficits, also known as loss we are going to start whittling that down and as fast as possible. So the fact that the trade deficit grew nearly thirteen percent just last year by his own standard. The higher deficit means he's failing. And that we're losing that other countries are taking advantage of us, but Doug Irwin economists. And trade historian at Dartmouth College doesn't actually see it that way, he says it's natural expected even at the trade deficit increased last year in general what we've seen US history is that when we have a booming economy or a growing economy trade deficit tends to either stay the same or grow. Oh, and they tend to strengthen recessions from two thousand eight to two thousand nine the trade deficit fell by nearly half counterintuitive as it may seem the growing trade deficit last year was driven by how strong the US economy was especially relative to big trading partners, like the European Union and China, Catherine man is the global chief economist at Citi group consumers are buying more because they are have higher income because they're strong labor markets, and because they got a little bit of a tax cut that makes them able to consume more. And some of it falls on imports seem thing with business businesses producing because labor markets are tight they got a little bit of a tax cut. So they import intermediate product so that they can produce goods to meet the demand in the domestic economy, and for a communist, this is all very very predictable. They saw this coming a mile away. If the US really wants to reduce the trade deficit it should. Save more says Carl Tannenbaum chief economist at Northern Trust. One of the reasons we have a trade deficit is that on average our consumers spend a lot more of their income than foreigners to saving not as fun as spending. But ten imams says it make households more stable in the long run and reduce the trade deficit. I'm Tracey Samuelson for marketplace. Well, let's put a context on this morning's trade gap. Number reminder that it's the total value of goods and services that we buy and sell overseas, Tracy was talking about goods that has actual tangible stuff that blew out our trade deficit. Well, here's the deal. The interesting part is that we've got a trade surplus in services have for decades now actually of which we sell a bunch overseas
Intimate Hermit Crab Keeps Shell On
"This is science Americans sixty seconds science. I'm Karen Hopkin. So I never really thought I'd study Pena size, but I sort of stumbled on this topic Mark lider, a biologist at Dartmouth College light travels to Costa Rica to study hermit crabs a species called sina Beata compresses. These land crabs do some interior remodeling of their adopted shells, the extensively hollow them out removing Streit's called spiral cholula to give themselves some extra elbow room. The renovation renders. The shells more precious to their owners and two other covetous crustaceans as well. These more valuable shells, though are also more easily stolen since without the spiral. Kolya Mellon signed the shell to grip onto individuals are pretty liable to have their property snatched from them, particularly when they're engaged in other activities like copulation which requires coming part way out of the shell despite his work in the field. It wasn't until lighter was wandering through Ziam that he noticed something about his favourite crabs the really striking thing. Was that scene? Evita compresses the one who social behavior I've been studying for so many years headed unusually large penis, in fact, bigger than any other species the observation gave him an idea, which he dubbed the private parts for private property hypothesis in a sense, the hypothesis posits that in large private parts can be an adaptation extending amounts sexual reach and thus enabling both him and his partner to remain safely tucked away inside their shells, while they copulate thereby protecting the private property of their shells from being stolen during sex Darwin proposed a similar idea to explain why barnacles which are stuck in one place are so amply Dowd did test his private parts for private property hypothesis light or sized up more than three hundred male museum specimens, including hermit crabs that live on land. And it's see any found that crabs that carried custom coverings head the most impressive Kornel equipment at the same time species that got their shells off the shelf had bigger geared than did crabs that walked around with. Oh, shell at all is results revealed in the Royal Society journal open science, it's intriguing to think that this high posses might have greater generality beyond hermit crabs. But like a hermit crab encountering a humdrum. Shell Lantra says he's going to leave that one alone. For me.
