"And it was four and two in the first two quadrants with a quadrant three loss until Miami murdered North Carolina on Tuesday night and jumped in the net enough to make that home loss to the hurricanes that duke suffered a quad two loss instead of a quad three laws. I think duke's good. If you told me to put together a list of teams, you know, 6, 7, 8 deep that can win the national championship. I would have duke on that list. But this deep into the season as we've talked about a million times, I'm mostly gonna rank you based on what you've actually done. I'm not trying to outsmart the results of games. Like, you played a bunch of games. Have you done? And they've done well, but not as well as 5 other teams in the country. Ten other teams in the country. Maybe not even 15 other teams in the country. Again, three and two and quadrant one one and one in quadrant two, so four and three in the first two quadrants. I'll tell you what was concerning to me and it has become a trim with this duke team is they don't rebound the ball at all. I mean, Florida state grabbed 19 offensive rebounds against duke. Miss 47 shots grab 19 offensive rebounds. That's an offensive rebounding rate of 40.4. That's outrageous. Now Kentucky leads the country in offensive rebounding rate at 40.2. So what Florida state get against duke is better than what Kentucky has done against its schedule and Kentucky leads the nation in offensive rebounding percentage. So Florida state was awesome against duke, but some of it was duke was terrible against Florida state, as has been the case for much of the season. Duke's defensive rebounding percentage is 29.8. I know he's never don't mean anything to some people, but for some context understand that ranks 237th in the country. It's a flaw. Perhaps a fatal flaw. Because what it led to last night is Florida state grabbing 12 more offensive rebounds than duke. And then additionally, Florida state turned it over ten fewer times than duke. And that led to a deal where Florida state took 18 more shots than duke. 73 to 55. And the seminoles also took 7 more free throws than duke. 25 to 18. So if you're wondering how Florida state one, despite shooting just 35.6% from the field, while duke shot 49.1% of the fail, that's it. The civil said way more scoring opportunities. Like in a 40 minute game, if you're going to take 18 more shots than your opponent, your opponent is going to have a hard time beating you. And that's what happened a Tuesday night in Tallahassee and that's something that duke's got to get cleaned up. They can still be really good despite these things. They have been. But with those things, I think it becomes difficult to be elite consistently and avoid courting like the one they endured last night. My closing thoughts on this are have to give it up to rate one Evans who hit just a phenomenal running off the glass layup to even get this to the bonus session and then actually Evans Bond up hitting the clinching foul shots to secure the wind for Florida state. But he's a really solid player. And I know F is two fans are quite familiar with how important he's been in spots across the season and last. But yeah, that shot to even get it over Mark Williams and to get this game to OT was such a tough shot in a really, really good one. And then duke loses because that goes in and we get it to a bonus session and then Wendell Moore just didn't have a great shot. Ben Carroll didn't even get it to Ben Carroll in the final possession. I don't know if that would have made a difference or not, but Ben Caro, you know, the more he's involved the better they are, they had been Carol feeding Williams, you know, from 16, 17, 20 feet out a couple times last night and I thought that was really successful there. So good on that for you. You're in the conversation. Plenty of work to do. I don't know for sure if this team's going to the tournament or not, but I do know you need to win that game against duke to really give yourself a chance and now they got a chance. Next up for Florida state, Thursday's game. They're stepping out of the ACC to get a game with north Florida. Next up for duke, Saturday's game with a Syracuse team that's now 9 and 9 on the season after Tuesday's win over Clemson.

"Thank you, Scott. What is it like to see him today? It kind of takes my breath away Scott. Does that helps to bring some closure and some help? Help, for heroes, has been the mission of the Carnegie fund for 117 years. It has bestowed 10,000 medals and awarded $40 million. And back in 1904, Andrew Carnegie sensed what science has now confirmed. Heroes, he said, can not be created. They act on an impulse. A mysterious gift to the few. Now, an update on a story we first reported in 2018. Sharon alphonse looked at how a plastic plague was turning oceans into vast garbage dumps. A young Dutch inventor buoyant slat created a device meant to clean up the notorious great Pacific garbage patch. The eventual goal of this cleanup is to get to a 90% reduction by the year 2040. The combination of pipe and nylon netting collected more publicity than plastic. But slots organization the ocean cleanup has developed a new design. In tests, this summer and fall, its successfully collected some 63,000 pounds of ocean plastic. I'm John wertheim. We'll be back next week with another edition of 60 minutes.

"This is the takeout with major Garret. This week on the checkout environmental photographer Jim balog, the human element is his book. It is a time capsule from the Anthropocene 200 years from now. People will look back at our era when everything's changing so much and they'll go for God's sake. What happened? They're gonna live in a world that's really, really, really different, and they're going to wonder what we were thinking about and what we were experiencing in our time. For more from this week's conversation, follow the take out with major Garrett on Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. With the death of general Colin Powell this past week, America lost one more of its dwindling supply of wise men and wise women. Washington hands with seasoned perspective, who could tell a president when he is wrong. Like general Powell, they weren't always right, but could be trusted to hold the nation's interest above personal ambition. Sam none, Olympia snow, and George Mitchell came from the Senate, Jim baker was an establishment lawyer. A few were from Wall Street, or like general Powell, from the military. Last Sunday on this broadcast, we heard from another, Robert Gates, who rose through the national security and intelligence communities. Most of them are now retired or gone. We can only wonder if the present state of American politics is capable of producing their successors. I'm Bill Whitaker. We'll be back next week with another edition of 60 minutes.

"It could be open at both ends. The so called dog trot layout. Toe breezes could blow through and they had high ceilings and it wasn't just Lot of space for you. It meant that heat rises. And so the heat rises up above your head level and keeps you cooler on Dove course ceiling fans. Cost a tiny fraction of the amount of electricity of a C but they can cool you off by a few degrees just is equally Let's go to Courtney Online. Nine in Peaks Go. Hi, Courtney. Thanks for calling all of it. Hi. This is Kourtney from Peekskill. Thanks for having me on. Um I like a lot of people. I have the vegetable garden. I drive the electric vehicle I compost and all that, but I realized that all of that requires money, and not everyone is in a financial position to do that, so we really need to change the system so that everybody has access to renewable heating cooling. Electricity, etcetera. And as many people know, New York passed the steel c p a that Climate Leadership Community Protection Act that said, all these lofty goals for getting up getting us off fossil fuels. But one thing that folks can do and actions that they can take is that right now, our New York State Public Service Commission has been tasked with making the actual road map of how we're going to meet those goals. And they were supposed to come out with that back in August of 2020, and since then they've just been delaying and delaying over and over again. Wilmore Focker feel infrastructure gets built. All across New York. So a bunch of organizations from all over New York 130 organizations with 190 elected officials have called on the Public Service Commission to basically put out that plan and get us the rapid and equitable transition. So we're having a virtual rally and press conference on ground Hog Day. The second of February at noon, and we would love it. If folks who really want to see us change this system joined us. You can find all the information at renewable heat now dot org's Or search for hashtag. Get off gas on Twitter. Thanks, Courtney. They're doing that for the shadow. We really appreciate it. My guess is David Pogue. How to prepare for climate change a practical guide to surviving the chaos. This is a big, thick book. There's so much information in here. Something I thought was kind of interesting given some of the headlines of today is you write about investing What are some ways to engage in the stock market? The way you can invest ethically invest if that's the way you want to go about helping this issue. Yeah, And you know this ties in beautifully with Courtney's called just now Climate change. Study after study has shown hits low income areas and communities of color, worse, um, long list of historical reasons for that, Um, so this this chapter on where to invest Profit from climate change adaptation was a long conversation with my editor is, is it Tasteless and elitist to suggest that people can invest. In businesses that will do well in the climate change era. And the answer, according to the experts I spoke to is yes, because in effect, you're helping the problem. You're backing and investing in companies. They're trying to make it better for everyone. Better to invest in, You know something that's going to make the world cleaner than in let's say a fossil fuel company anyway. So the answer The question is e mean the obvious thought is Oh solar power. Oh, wind power. Those actually aren't fantastic investments. Or the simple, wonderful reason that they've gotten really, really cheap. I mean, the price of solar power and wind is So cheap this year, 72% of all new electrical production facility in the United States will be renewable energy, mainly from solar and wind. That's why they're not a great investment. It's kind of a race to the bottom. Better ideas or to think of who will profit. From the solar and wind industries. A bunch of states now have mandates to get a certain amount, including New York to get a certain amount of their power from renewable sources. And they have to buy that power from electrical utilities. So the utilities that get most of their power from solar and wind are the ones who will do well. Companies like Nextera and Excel Energy. Also, you know, we know that the world is going to electric cars. General Motors incredibly announced that they're going to be an all electric car. Yeah, Company within 14 years. Um, So how do you think strategically upstream? Well, they all need lithium ion batteries, and there's only four companies that make them They're all Asian cos there's LG Electronics and Panasonic and so on. And all those batteries require lithium, and there are very few major lithium mining companies, but one of them is American. All tomorrow. It's called, and there's a chill and company too. So it's a matter of sort of thinking upstream from who is going to supply all of these technological solutions to climate change. The name of the book is how to prepare for climate change A practical guide to surviving the chaos thanks to everybody who called in and thank you to David Polk. Thank you so much. Up.

"Doing. Emily. Thanks for calling in. Let's go to John in Morningside Heights Online to Hi, John. Thanks for calling all of it. You're on the air. Hi. How are you? I'm doing great. I like this point You're gonna make 00 you do? Oh, good. I'm so glad you know about because nobody knows about this. So any type of you know, climate change scenario past to include hydrogen feels all economy. Sorry, kind of nervous, so it's OK but John Kerry has, you know mentioned it the last couple of days. You know, once in his press conference in No once yesterday on the national TV, I think was racial metal show, but, um, yeah, I mean, you know, California has about 9000 cars made by Toyota, Honda and Hyundai. That are running around the roads there, but they really need the stations and every car manufacturer right now has a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle program. It's just, you know, battery and battery electric vehicles of sort of I hate to say suck the oxygen out of the the atmosphere. And so it's tough for hiding. Sort of, you know, get a foothold but 18 countries right now. Have a hydrogen, you know, plan or road map that they're gonna pursue, including China and a bunch of company countries in Europe. As well. So it's really important that we get on board with this and And you know they're Toyota and Honda in hundreds. Waiting to buy cars. In the Northeast. They've been trying to for five years. There's actually almost 12 stations. Up and running right now, so and really good news coming out of the Boston area in Boston Fire Department, which is has approved these cars on the bridges and tunnels and we're just waiting for The Port Authority in New York, New Jersey to get on board, too. Thanks so much for bringing that into the conversation. I really appreciate it. My guess is David Pogue. We're talking about how to prepare for climate change a practical guide to surviving the chaos. So in your book, you talk about something that not everybody can afford to do right now, which is Moving and leaving areas that are affected and maybe going someplace else. So the thing is, though, if you're moving, you probably live in a place that climate that's climate vulnerable. How have we seen climate change affect the real estate market? Um, Yeah, well, Miami is is the key poster child for this principle. Um, you know, Miami is going to be underwater. There There is. I mean, people are saying by late this century, it's It's just gone low lying. You can't build a sea wall around it. The sea levels are rising. And you know when the when the international Intergovernmental Panel on climate change says that we're expecting sea levels to rise. You know 3 to 8 ft. You might think what's 3 ft up. But what you have to remember 3 Ft up means, you know, 1000 ft in landed it czar businesses in our homes in our basements in our first floors. So, um, you're right. Not everyone can afford to move. Not everyone wants to move considering you have a social network and so on, But You know, my point in the book is that 40 million people in America do move every year anyway for retirement. They're marrying or divorcing or getting a job or getting out of the military or school. Ondo. Sometimes, increasingly, the climate change haven principle is AH, guiding force in these decisions. And you know, the West Coast is wildfires. South Coast. It's hurricanes. The East Coast is super storms. The South is baking heat. And in the left half the West half they We have huge water shortages that not many people are talking about, yet they're more or less in a permanent state of drought. On do There's no easy solution to that. So so really the answer to where to move If you have a choice for long term climate protection is the Great Lakes. It's the great old Rust Belt cities. You know, Cleveland loose Burlington Madison, these air cities with unlimited amounts of clean fresh water to drink. And no wild fires and no hurricanes. And they're great places to live, You know, low cost of living and diverse population, well educated airports, hospitals and so on. Duluth, actually really cool town. It is very cold. It's just very, very cool. Little City. I'm sure cares if you think you know. Obviously, this book was written before the pandemic, do you Do you think that pandemic will change this people may not want to live in cities. Anymore, and we know that work is possible now. Yeah, That's right. Um You know the pandemics been sort of interesting because a two beginning of it. We witnessed the greatest drop in greenhouse gas emissions in recorded history. The United States saw a 10% drop in greenhouse gas divisions. I mean, it's for a terrible reason. It's that nobody was working and all the factories were sitting close and the businesses were closed, but it did give everybody sort of Ah glimpse Of what could be possible and the opportunity to do a reset. And as you say, I'm sure Ah, lot of these zoom meetings, zoom rehearsals. Zoom dates on some of this stuff is going to survive after the pandemic is over. And all of that is one example of a way that The pandemic taught us Ways to decrease Our emissions and you know, in a more complex way the pandemic was part of what got Biden elected a man with Who Who's Who's number one or number two priority is climate change, so in an indirect way it was responsible for bringing into office. People who really cherish science. And really want to do something about the problem. My guess is David Pogue. The name of his book is how to prepare for climate change a practical guide to surviving the chaos. We'll talk about affordable solar panels. What about rain catching rain? We'll talk about the air conditioner conundrum and maybe why getting rid of your lawn is a good step, and we'll also take more of your calls after Break. This is all of.

"70 to 80. You can always go to social media as well. You can tweet to us at all of it. W. And why see? So David? Why did you want to write a book that focused on measures that individuals could take? It's funny. John Holdren was Barack Obama's she science advisor and he he said, this thing in 2007. It's become sort of a classic line and climate circles. We have two ways to cope with climate change. There's mitigation, which is trying to stop it. And there's adaptation which is trying to cope with it. And from my perspective. Literally. Everything I've ever read about the steps you should take about climate change has been in the first category. It's fly less and use public transportation and don't eat red meat. And you know that's all very important and definitely on a believer and a follower. But it's no longer enough. I mean, we have changed the climate and we're only beginning to see the effect. It's going to be even if we stop burning fossil fuels. Tomorrow, we would still be seeing these crazy hurricanes and heat waves and droughts and Wildfires so My question is what about the second part of Holden's formula? The adaptation and that is is you've noted that something that governments are doing and corporations and industries there. You know, building the big you around the southern tip of Manhattan to protect it from sea level rise and so on. But no one's talking about what individuals and families could do. So that's that's what this book is meant to address. What's so funny? Any time we do a segment like this, there's always someone who pipes up and says one person doing one thing isn't going to change anything yet. You really do encourage people to do things like track their carbon footprint. Why do you think Personal contributions like that. Are a good way to think about the environment and why they're good for people at us as human beings. Well, I mean, in some ways, those objectors are correct. I mean, the 100 companies are responsible for 71% of all emissions, so Yeah, To think that replacing your light bulbs of l E. D s is gonna make it dense. Yeah, You're crazy s O. If you are going to take some action, the most effective thing you could do involves getting together with other people join Climate group get involved with one of the climate movements online or above all vote for for people who care about the climate. But there is a secondary effect that that's really kind of cool. It's the social norms, effect or social contagion. I've heard it called. They've done studies where In a certain neighborhood, the number of solar panels that go up Directly affect the rate of other people putting solar panels on their roots. So people see your solar panels and that catches on it. It's the same reason that You know, Now it's more people stop smoking because they see other people stop smoking and or or if you go to a restaurant with three friends, and they all ordered the salad. You're not going to order a cheeseburger, it Z. There's a cumulative effect of what you see around you. The more people that take small steps. More that will turn into a wave affecting more people. In the book, You start a bit early in the book, talking about the psychological effects of climate change, how we need to think about how climate change affects us mentally. How does it Um, you know, it's It's funny. My my my editor calls this a big anti anxiety pill. Um, it turns out that from a psychological standpoint. Depressed in is not just feeling like your situation is terrible. It's feeling that your situation is terrible, and you can't do anything about it. The act of taking some steps, taking some action in this case, preparing for climate disaster that actually does two things. Yes, it makes you ready or when extreme weather comes your way. But it also makes you sleep better at night. It it makes you feel better. That you've you've done something to take control of your situation. And you right, Let's talk about a couple of terms. It's important to make clear you right for the record climate is not weather. That's right. Well, remember, remember the senator, Senator Inhofe, who walked into Congress a few years ago with a snowball said, You're telling me the world is warming up? Yes, climate is not weather weather is something that changes From day to day or even our to our climate is on a much longer scale. And also I mean, I'm also trying to make the point in this book that client that global warming Is a terrible term. It's super misleading. Yes, the planet is warming, but it's really climate chaos that results there. These Domino effect these ripple effects. I mean, it's It's raging wildfires and torrential rains. It's severe drought. I am a freak snowstorms its heat wave. You know, and pick investigations. It's a bunch of stuff that you wouldn't expect to be related to simple warmth. In fact, there's some really nutty things that are secondary and Tertiary effects, You know, smaller goat. Maura, expensive chocolates. Lower P s A T scores more bar fights and they're seeing all kinds of really wacky secondary effects of of the changing climate. Is that why you bring up the term and I've heard this term before Global weirding. I much prefer that global Weirding is much more descriptive of of what's happening. Yeah, Global warming is just It's addressing the underlying problem, but none of the effects. And I think when you're trying to express a complex scientific principle To the public. I think they're doing us a disservice. By the way I feel the same way about the greenhouse effect. I think you know, 1% of Americans have been in a greenhouse and know that it's you know, 20 degrees warmer than outside. I think we should call it the dog in the car effect. Because in a hot summer day, you know how the car heats up. Ridiculously hot inside were the dog. My guest, David Pogue. The name of his book is how to prepare for climate change.

It was in all fairness quite a stunning technological achievement. This device that essentially served as a computer in front of your eye for those of you. That haven't seen the product it was made with titanium band that was worn over the years much. Like a regular pair of glasses without lenses and attached to the frame on the right side was a plastic casing that included a processor camera and display beyond. The camera was a touch pad and other electronic components with the display that would be activated by a thirty degree tilt of the head or by tapping the touch pad. You can give simple voice commands like glass. Call mom or glass. Take a picture. Google envision this would be used for taking photos or videos making calls texting email navigation.

While the other side argued that it should be worn only for specific functions regardless both sides were able to agree that the prototype was well a prototype with pretty big crinkles to iron out. So let me take you through some of these issues. The small screen that was located at the angle above her. I made it hard to look at videos or read for long periods of time the battery life while that was very limited sometimes lasting for only a few hours it would also misinterpret voice commands which oftentimes will get lost in noisy settings. The earpiece was uncomfortable and the wink to take a picture. Didn't work that well but Sergei the man behind the project knowing. That glass wasn't even close to a finished. Product decided to do something bold. Instead of working out. The very major kinks. He decided to launch the product as is to a group of highly selected consumers called glass explorers. These glass explorers basically paid fifteen hundred dollars for a chance to become the early adopters. Who would then test? The product provide feedback and help improve the design and functionalities of glass. Initially the accolades came pouring in Tech Evangelist at Microsoft and blogger author. Robert Scoble wrote quote. I would never live a day without them. And David Pogue noted in New York Times blog quote glass is an absolutely astonishing feat of miniaturization and integration. The possibilities were endless for those seeing. The potential of what glass could do for example? A trauma surgeon realizes how glass would help her. Transmit a live video of the operation to a remote expert for real time help of reporter can use glass to capture moments of breaking new seen without having to assemble a full camera. Crew likewise most glass explorers found the devices navigation to be quite extraordinary. I had the chance to speak with one of the original Glass Explores Robert Hernandez professor at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School of Communications. Whose background has been in emerging tech. Here he talks about how he won the chance to become an early adopter and so I saw Google had a contest. Where if you tweeted out what you would do with Google glass. You could win the podcast when what you win. Is the right to buy expensive device. I thought I'm really did a twitter. Let me go to tweet something out and so I tweeted that if I had google blache I would use it. To explore contextual storytelling through augmented reality. And this wearable device. Professor Hernandez taught a course back in two thousand fourteen as he explored the possibilities of glass looking through the Lens of journalism and Pov storytelling so we put the device on people with different perspectives. One being a really great. Ls Shah a prominent drummer. Another one was a magician. Who made this magic trick? Kinda like from his point of view but he did tricks. You really phenomenal gymnast. Who doing work on the ranger. We had to kind of dump it on his head to do that when we tried some other type of experiments of different types of storytelling included long-form tax in Google glass so a lot of experimentation. But it was really diverse students coming together to try to figure out what this technology could off but the hype alone could do only so much to mass limitations of these classes which were made to be just a prototype and what. Sergei thought was going to be a brilliant marketing strategy would soon have him walking.

He's got he's got a nickname that alludes suicide quickness. And dude so has quickness because he started off of that stage and onto this it was far away. I mean incredible production college game day. And then I saw a clip on Twitter of just at some point. I think like in the middle of the first round course, it was just like all right? I'm done with this and he just left and they replaced it. He was just like I'm done Billy. Do you have any Denver? The last night fact, no. Did you see the did you see the old clips like before the draft of David Pollack late when he was getting ready for draft, man? He's a big dude, they helix great now. Now that he didn't look great before. But I did not know that David Pogue was so big before Pollock was a really good player. A really good player Georgia and then neck injury. He was a linebacker. But he was like us, basically. I think he was like an edge and Wikipedia is much more handsome. Now is what you're saying. Like he looks. No, he looks the same. But now it looks like exactly the same his faces. Exactly the same. Yeah. The traps are insane. The thing is this when I think of David Pollock. I think of when college game day was here, and I saw David Pollack walking in a bathing suit to go jump off of the high tide at UM. How is that? How I imagine David Pollack. That's how I always see him when I saw him as a football player getting ready for the draft was like what how did this happen, man? They just football guys. They just they get out of the league. And they just I mean, he wasn't the neck injury sort of changed his lifestyle a lot. Yeah. I didn't know he had an no career ending. It was a very scary injury for David Paul. His head was was wearing one of those halos for awhile. Chris feel free to go ahead and walk into the ocean. Oh. To no one's excited about Christian Wilkins. I mean. Yeah, he's the white ranger. What do we been excited this whole day? He did this split. It stinks though, Mike when you've got the quarterback on the board who threw for fifty touchdown passes. He drops to you in a surprise because Gilman's gonna Gettleman and what you end up with is one of three defensive lineman. You would have wanted from Clemson this one slipped. So you feel better about it. But the fact they didn't get a quarterback. I think dolphin fans are done with interior linemen and interior defensive linemen. Like, I think they're just done with that being the answer every year and they're wrong every year. Yeah. But you don't you're not this like huge advance scout when it comes to a college football players, but you know, Wilkins's he looks like a professional town to me. And I love his personality..

"You are back with Jill on money. And if you've got a financial question, we want to hear from you. Okay. We love it, Mark. And I are digging out from last year still. Okay. We're we're I think we're pretty much in December emails. Why are you laughing at me for he's laughing? He's like looking at me like you think we're in December sales, but I still have some from November that are kicking around. But I just well here's one from Linda, and she wrote this on December sixteenth. I love what you're doing. Especially to empower women. Yes. Good. Okay. Here's her question. How many months or years should one have squirrelled away to sustain if necessary in retirement that is such a variable questions? So let's talk about retirement for a second. Right. The way to think about retirement is how much money do I need on a monthly basis. You notice how every single thing. I talk about starts with that question. What a pain in the neck. I am. But that is very much essential to understand what you need to be doing with your money. You must have a very good idea of your needs. Then what you do is you look ahead. And you say, okay. Well, how much social security Magoni get how much pension income am I gonna get am? I lucky enough to be the beneficiary of the big fat trust like Mark. You know, he's an air. All right. Just a joke. That's a total joke. He's not an air. But if you're going to get money, maybe it's from maybe it's from real estate. Maybe it's maybe it is like your trust your beneficiary of a trust you add up all that money. And then you say, okay, social security, pension, any other income does that cover what I need. If it doesn't how much money do I need to save to generate the gap between what I need and what's coming in. All right. How do you do? This don't stress I found this wonderful website. And I really encourage people to check this out because if you don't want to go to a financial planner to do this yourself, you can actually pay a subscription fee to ES planner ES planner dot com, and it's one hundred forty nine bucks. And they'll they'll take you through this whole process. It's very cool. Okay. So you need to figure out how much you have to save. So let's pretend that you need to have two thousand dollars a month. From whatever your investments are. Well, I would suggest that you probably need to have about a million bucks saved by the time you retire because that million bucks will generate about thirty grand. Most of that money is going to be taxable. So you have to pay tax, and then you get down to like, oh at twenty four thousand a year, and that's two thousand dollars a month. And now, I'm okay. Okay. Now, if you are questioning about so that's sort of like, your how much do I need to have squirrelled away question. But if you're saying how much money do I need in safe money. Linda, that's a little bit different. Because you hear me say on the show all the time that what you need is six to twelve months of your general living expenses in the Bank. When you retire that emergency reserve safety net that number has to be more. It has to be that you have your one full year of expenses in the Bank. So if we go back to your original question of, you know, let's say that you needed twenty four thousand dollars a year from that portfolio gears. You better have that twenty four ground squirrelled away. I would even suggest one to two years. People hate that the advice, but I think it's the right advice, really important. Okay. Really important. All right. I hope that helps. Okay. Here's a Janna who says that she and her partner have whole life policies on each other. There sixty nine they've been in place for fifteen years, how difficult if even possible would it be to change the policies to turn policies? First of all why? Let's go to that point. Why why why we do not want you to be converting to term life insurance unless you need insurance? And if you do need insurance for the rest of your lies, then keep what you have don't worry about it. That's the easiest thing in the world to do. Okay. Oh, by the way. Here's someone who listens to me prattling on. Thank you Marilyn. I love you. My new iphone? She says I didn't make a mistake because she, but she got the iphone X arch too. Big at hangs out of her pocket, and the weight of it untie, my shoe. Anyway, she says better camera, and she said, you know, I thought the X was too expensive. She says be sure to armor up your glass backed phone with a good case. I do have that also recommended David. Pose iphone the missing manual twelfth different edition reference for new iphones. Yeah. I love David Pogue. I've met him in the he gets his haircut here at CBS because he comes into the studio some, you know, every so often anyway, so thanks for those emails and thanks for keeping me on the street near usually at to call my friends at c net to get all the infomation.
