Teeing the removal of part of his nose Also they removed part of his ears and even his ring finger and the addition of silver dentures. Eighty five percent of his body is tattooed despite his devilish appearance which you can see in the chapter artwork. He recently admitted that he believes in god. He's a devout christian.

I've caught it seven times since the pandemic started. Well someone please throw it in me. Oh by the way. Come to find out. that's not true. Sex does not prevent kovin. It was a fake health statement. That went viral shocker. They're a fake government document claiming that sex could cure cove. Nineteen so not. It's not that it could prevent covid.

Document claiming that sex could cure kobe. Nineteen has been debunked by south africa's national health department. They have one of those things over there. The document claimed that four to six hours of sex a day. What that's almost a fulltime job. I couldn't if i wanted to. You have sex or four to six hours a day. Chances are you've got bigger issues than kovin like more pressing for instance dehydration and what. I call shaky legs syndrome. That ever happened to you.

Each of us has the power to break the link of infection and protect ourselves and others. So i've got a copy here of the official looking document. I gotta be honest with you. It doesn't even look official. It's got a watermark that's about it but then the entire document is centered which is weird. And here's what it says. The only way we can beat this corona virus exclamation mark. Note that let's keep everyone indoors at least four to six hours a day. We confirm that sex is the only option medication we can use for now. Let's try to make many rounds as we can at least four. I'm sorry at last two four to five per day until further notice..

One of those taboo loves simply cannot lay bare with cheese farmer.

Occasionally, it doesn't take much to impress you. It doesn't happen very often. So let's enjoy it, and we're gonna roll up our Proverbial sleeves here and and get the worst. We'll start out with the on Lee, a trader today the people's team making the trade with the Atlanta Hawks, and it seemed to the uneducated basketball fan. Like a rather an Oculus deal. At first glance, the Clippers sending sweet Lou Sweet Lou Williams. Great six man back in his prime and some meaningless second round picks to the A. T. L in exchange for Zhaan Rondo, who comes back L A. But now he's playing for the good
Employers aim for hybrid working after Covid-19 pandemic - How will it work?
"Exactly a year ago the pandemic forces all out of the office and our studios and sent us working from home. Well we were setting up our at home audio booths. A lot of other people around the world were setting up their at home offices and it soon became clear that we'd need some long term solutions for that not just laptop stacked on top of piles of books. So that's when we turn to our senior personal tech columnist to anna stern and some of you may remember. We had a regular segment with her on the task of working from home now a year later. Were hoping that our days of working remotely are numbered but even when we do reach the other side of the pandemic a slew of companies have announced that they aren't expecting employees to go back to work in the same way as in the pre pandemic days. The new buzzword is hybrid. But what does that mean exactly. Well who better to answer that question. Then of course joanna stern. She's back with us today. Joanna so great to have you here so good to be back all right so right now. It's me sellin my home studio you and your home office. But we're all excited to get some more real facetime in person you've been talking to a bunch of companies. What are they saying about this idea of hybrid work. What does that mean. They are all saying the word hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid hybrid work. It means that you will work some time at home and time at the office and the analysts are saying that the brunt of people want this people want to work sundays at home. And there's a magic number. Two days i heard the number two to three days so many times in reporting this story everyone is saying we'll spend two to three days at the office or two to three days at home. You pick the number of days so that so bad fifty fifty give or take. Let's talk about what that's going to look like many of us work in open offices. How are those gonna change with this hybrid model so it definitely depends on your organization and how they plan to shake things up and move the spaces around but knowing that we might spend two to three days at home. It doesn't make sense for many of these companies to have permanent desk space for everybody. So that's why there are these new models of thinking about what the the office space will look like and go through. What i think are three ways. This could look at your company. One is same old right. Nothing changes you. Actually go back to your old desk. Maybe there's some more distance between you and your colleague that's nice you don't get the smell them smell bad anymore. It's great the other idea. This is number two which is becoming really popular because of that point that not. Everyone should have their own desk because not everyone's going every day. Is this idea. And i promise you. This is not my term in. It's horrible turam hot Hosking means that you don't have an assigned test you come in you get a new desk you leave you come in another day. You have a different desk and again it makes sense because not everyone is in on the same day. One of the people i spoke to for the story is the ceo of salesforce joanne. All saskia and she explained to me how they are moving to that model. Everyday you come in you find with your team if you want or you know wherever whoever you might be working with you grab a desk in there you go. And we have a crew that comes in at night and they reset the monitors and reset chairs reset standing desks. So the next day when you come in is completely clean completely sanitized. So we're already doing that will now. We're going to do that with most of our spaces and then the third one is really a big change and it's no desk. You have no desk. You're really just going to the office to collaborate with people to go to meetings and companies are doing. This dropbox is one of them. They are calling their their new spaces. Dropbox studios really call it in office anymore. And you just go in you have meetings you collaborate you bond with your colleagues and then you go home and you work from home most of the time. So let's talk about that working from home piece. We've all gotten pretty used to our at home. Setups how is this hybrid. Model going to change those. What are some of the new challenges. I think the big when we have to think about is that we're going to be bringing stuff back and forth and back and forth a lot laptops other. Techy wanted home. Or you want at. The office headphones microphones that kind of stuff. In some cases you won't bring it and you will have a situation at your office where you can keep some of it there but i think in some cases you really are going to want to drag that stuff back and forth because you might only have one of them or you like the thing that you use. Some companies are getting creative about how employees get the extra tech might need. Here's sales for ceo. Joanna subscale again. We provide any role that they need so they want an external keyboard they can have asked. They want mouse. They can have that they. Just get it out of the the vending machine. I need a keyboard and outcomes a keyboard. Did she say vending machines yes. She said vending machines and at salesforce. Unlike some other offices that we may work in. You don't get stale cookies or you. Don't get stale doritos. You've met computer peripherals and it's pretty simple. This is just a way for the it department not to be constantly responding to requests. That i need a new mouse or need a new headset. You're in the salesforce offices. They have vending machines. They're inside there. You go you swipe your card you get it and you don't pay for it. This is this is all free. Means like you're getting it from the department at another nice thing at salesforce to is that once you've gotten these peripherals they give you a cubby or locker to put your stuff in so you don't necessarily have to keep dragging back and forth your keyboard or your mouth your headset. You have it in your space at work. You got home. You have your home setup you come to work you grab your peripherals. You set them up. Got it okay. So that's the tech side of things but what about just communication. I mean we've been doing so much communication online. If some people are in the office some people are at home. How's that going to work. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that you're going to go back to the office and you're not going to be video calling anymore. Don't think terry okay. And i spoke at length with the ceo of logitech about this name is bracket daryl and he knows a thing or two. About webcams impersonal. Webcams are going to continue to be important in enabling conference to superport. You've got Dynamic where it's hard to imagine going to the office for so many companies didn't have a lot of your neighbor rooms where you go by yourself. Do video call with few people do small group. It's hard to imagine video neighboring those rooms especially when it's so affordable. Obviously logitech is very excited about this because this is their business. Everyone has tried to buy a webcam from logitech in the last year. But other companies have said this to me to zoom. Told me this microsoft. Lots of companies webcams everywhere. Okay so we've talked about video calls but we're using technology for a lot of other communication that we would have done in person before right we've been using slack teams google products to collaborate. What's in store for us on that front. Yeah i mean you have to think about it as we're actually all remote workers now even when we're at the office because not everyone is going to be at the office with us. So that means we have to lean on things like slack and microsoft teams or whatever. Your company uses more to communicate because we're all going to be distributed and so slack in these companies are specifically trying to look at their products and change their products to help with this hybrid. Model slack is working on one feature. They told me about where you can send a video message to the entire team so instead of having to do constant video calls someone on your team can put out one short video clip to everyone in the in the channel and say something so everyone on the same page about it and again that cuts down on the friction of. Hey you said something in the office but the other person wasn't in the office and they missed what you said so. It's really important. The other thing that i'm excited about that they're coming out with is kind of like a audio drop in conference call thing that will let you create an audio call and have other other people jump in. I like to think of it as clubhouse but in slack google's doing a lot in this space to they've added some functionality to work space which includes all their collaboration tools like meat and doc slides etc. One feature. That i think is really important. Is this ability to set your status and let people know where you are ahead of. Google workspace aerosol. Tarot also gave me in scope on how they're planning to beef up. Google docs and this is something that we're going to be delivering this year and we started to introduce. How do you move from. The collaboration experienced made us famous. So the idea that we can all jump in and be the dueling curse into to say. Hey let's enrich that and go from like dueling pursers with names to faces and voices that live alongside the document. That's like a marriage of google meat and google docs right. Yeah i'm i'm pretty excited about it. I mean sometimes. I don't necessarily want my editor yelling at me. When he's editing a my script but at least you know everyone is right you. You know what. They're what they're working on and whether they are actually Looking at the documents. I think that's pretty cool. Said like a true boss. Qatari all right. So what about the home office side of things. How are our home. Office is going to be changing the going forward. I don't think they change much. I think if you've set up a really nice office you're going to keep working there and you're gonna wanna keep working there. Some of the companies and the large companies. I spoke to talked about continuing to make employees feel comfortable in their home offices which means nice stipend survived tech or furniture. Obviously the ceo of logitech is pretty excited that we're going to continue to improve our home
I Cant Afford One Bitcoin! What Can I Do?
"Bitcoin is hot. Stop amidst this current bull market. We've seen a rush of new users who like most new users have no what's going on and one question of particular comes up a whole lot that i wanted to talk about today. What do i do if i can't afford one bitcoin. I'm adam levine and this is speaking of bit point. Today's always i'm joined by the other host of the show. Andreas 'em and operas. Hello stephanie murphy. I am jonathan mahan. Hey thanks to all the hosts into you listener for sitting on today's session. So i was talking to some people new to the cryptocurrency space last week and they were talking about what they were looking at making the first coins and they said that bitcoin just cost too much that it was too expensive that even if they agreed with all of the fundamental values the changes that will happen in the world. How bitcoin is a hedge for that and that bitcoin was going to. Let's say three x or five x in the next ten years and they saw that is real that they just didn't feel like transferring their wealth into something that they would never have one that they would never have one bitcoin that even if they spent a decade doing everything they could they would only ever have less than one bitcoin as a failure state as something that like emotionally. They couldn't get past. And i started thinking about myself when i was in college. I learning about bitcoin. And honestly i don't know if bitcoin had hit thirty or forty thousand dollars instead of dollar if i could have seen it as something that i wanted to get into just because of that mountain cliff of believing in something but then feeling like a failure. Because you don't even have quote unquote one of it. What do you guys think about that. What do you think people should be thinking about when it comes to that. I think that's an important psychological marker that people check in with when they're thinking about do i wanna buy this. How much does it cost to buy. One of this thing and i mean the real solution to that is to reframe. You're thinking there's other units to measure bitcoin in lots of wallets denominate their balances in mila. Bits now which is one thousandth of a bitcoin and you can change that in the settings and so you know if you could afford one million. Bitcoin would you by that. What about wants to toshi. The units are actually quite arbitrary. And it doesn't help that. The news and everything reports the price in terms of one bitcoin but that is also kind of helpful for a very long term perspective to see that it went from being worth nothing up to you know nearly fifty thousand dollars. There's other things that exhibit similar behavior for example. Some stocks have extremely high unit prices. And of course you can buy fractions of them berkshire. Hathaway is a famous example of that other things that have this kind of tendency. Are things like precious metals. You know you don't say well. I'm not gonna invest in gold because i can't afford a whole kilogram bar. Well yeah i mean. You can't but that doesn't mean that you can't get an airing. It's still gold is just a different value. And the unifies works both ways so for example instead of saying why can't afford a bitcoin but i can't afford a bit which is millions of a bitcoin. You can't afford a bit and that has a nice name. It's not merely bitcoin. Which kind of makes it sounds like a bitcoin with too many feet. That's a bad greek joke. It's not a unit that has no relationship you could also just measuring soto. She's because we all know of course are the standard as i keep getting reminded and you could choose any arbitrary unit but you can also go the other way right. You could redefined for example. Ten bitcoin as a chad hike. Very few people can really afford to buy a whole chad. But could i buy one tenth of a chat of bitcoin or desi chavez. I prefer to call it it. Oh all of these things are completely arbitrary and you can torment yourself on way or rejoice the out there in a completely arbitrary way and this is the key here arbitrary. It's not rational to focus. On any specific unit and we have a word for things that humans do the deviate from rationality or norm and those are called cognitive by and this particular thing is called unit bias. It's of well known cognitive bias and is studied in psychology from a number of different perspectives. It's not just the. I want to own one bitcoin. It's also the if you give me a twenty four ounce cup of soda. I'm going to drink the whole thing. Just because it comes in that size even though i may be only wanted half of it or if you create a heaping plate of french fries or if you give me a giant bag of doritos i'm gonna finish everything. Unit biases be studied a lot in terms of portions for eating. Because it actually one of the things that drives a number of eating disorders because it's a cognitive bias. It's a bug in your ability to think rationally about certain situations and that bug can lead to behavior that is against your own self interest and so this is a normal thing to have unit bias and sometimes says expresses itself in hilarious ways like for example to jonathan's example of people saying well. I can't buy a whole bitcoin. you get the opposite. Which is people who bought into dosage and are looking at it at six cents going. Yeah we can get it to a dollar dollar while allowing me to answer that watson dollar. What you don't understand dear sir is that there are one hundred twenty nine does and they are produced at a rate of what is it. One point four million a day and so to get does to a dollar. It's total market capitalization would have to reach a hundred and thirty five billion dollars or basically where a theorem walls last week. Now i don't know how you measure the utility of does and even if you think cerium is shit. Coin will not that bad

"A that's because of the friendship and the like talking to people while you play. Yeah the real point. Imagine is to sit at a commander table and have fun and come up with an idea for a dumb podcast. Okay you want to do my one last quick thing. sure so. I had mcdonald's yesterday. I haven't had mcdonald's in a long time and when you eat mcdonald's it tastes like how you thought mcdonnell's gonna taste like what you remember. Mcdonald's tasting is how it tastes when you're eating it and it led me to this thing this this little thought experiment. Let's say there's a restaurant. And i actually have a real world example of this but will start with the thought experiment you the restaurant you could even be like a fast food kind of thing and half the time it is one of the best meals you ever have the other half the time. It is passable like it's a five so half the time tonight on the ten half the time to five about a ten or you have a restaurant like mcdonald's that's always seven. Every time you go into mcdonald's get your food. You're gonna get your seven. It's not the greatest you've ever tasted good. You enjoy it. And you got what your money's worth. Where do you go i go. I'm always getting the seven. I i already experienced this. Actually when mcdonald's coffee was fairly new to mcdonald's and i still worked all over the city. And i was going all over the place. If i grab coffee. I usually went to tim hortons. Because mcdonald's coffee was new and mcdonald's employees were neglecting their coffee. It was still working out the workflow stuff and sometimes with mcdonald's coffee you get a much better coffee than tim. Horton's i know that last me. I don't talk about mcdonald's coffee here but their coffee can be much better But sometimes you got undrinkable. Coffee and You know that meant that. Mcdonald's wasn't where i went. I wasn't going for my. I wasn't gonna take shot. When i'm like if i go to tim warns i always get a passable coffee. I always get coffee. That is okay. That's pretty good. My example for is on campus. They have the spoke at at western and the chicken strips there once when i got them. They were like the best chicken strips i've ever had. I was like these chicken. Strips are amazing. The next time i went they were awful like they've made me like they were terrible. And i would say that spoke wasn't even fifty fifty. The spoke like seventy percent of the time. It was good thirty percents times bad but all you need is thirty percent of the time that every time you're ordering it you're scared like in your head you have that thing like am i just going to a bunch of shit that after eat whereas when you go to somewhere like mcdonalds. You're always going to be getting your thing and you're.

"An evil organization just openly evil. That's the distinction. They don't try to hide it. Okay so wanda vision really cool show. I'm pretty sure people are loving it. I know everyone aided the first three episodes right or something. I loved the first few episodes though. I've heard that some people did not like like the first episode or something. I think the thing that people didn't like is that the first episode or two does primarily the fictional show where it's know the fifty sixty sitcoms and it's not till later that you get the stuff and people wanted mcu sta. I slow slow. They were fifty. Sixty sitcoms or main plotlines weren't superhero related. It's my boss is coming over for dinner ono. That sounds better than mc thing. If you're there for the oh maggio's too old television you're actually gonna like the earlier episodes better as it gets tighter episodes. It's ben's not-i'm on the premise and spend way more time on the mcu stuff so before we should on disney plus. I actually planned to comment in regards to the steps of some people. Say this week is that i find that in the era of streaming services. You can't have a week. i episode like. We've talked a lot on this. Podcast pilots are hard and you give pilots a chance. I don't i don't think pilots have that Wiggle room anymore. I think when you make a pilot for tv show nowadays if it's on a streaming service it has to be the best episode of the series almost in fact a lot of series might go too far the other way like the witcher has great pilot in a terrible ethics has terrible half of its episodes. If we're being totally honest for only ninety nine percent just doesn't really good first episode. And i think that's the thing that because everyone now has access to everything and if you don't like the first episode of something you're probably going to go switch and watch something else you're not gonna watch episode two three four five. I think one division what it had going for it was the the backing of its from. The mcu is elizabeth olsen. Playing her. same character is gonna in a bunch of things like that. What carried it. But if you're a new concept a new intellectual property. Because i think that's the most difficult thing is if you're a new intellectual property because if if they released because the witcher had going for video game Lock and key head going for that. It's a comic book graphic novel. Whatever so all of these ones have had fan base. it's already created so people going umbrella academy there's so many were already made if you're in original intellectual property your first episode has to be just like the greatest episode of tv of all time because so many people i think will not just give up on things so quickly like queen's gambit. Actually cleaned game was based on a book. But.

"Shine. Basically the fan response has been enough that Who might be getting his own show. Which would be great. 'cause he's just absolutely lovable he you meet him ant man and the wasp points with just with the fbi. He asked about the card drain. He learns the card trick. By the way gives other business cards people get it was a good It was a good story so one of oh my god. Let's talk about my favorite things but one division. I will stick to three number one all of the nods. They've made to old television. You can go through the early episodes you you pick out the decade. Because each episode is different decorative television. Can you tell what shows they're pulling from. Its i love. Lucy bewitched brady bunch. I don't know anybody on that. Personally i do know that by episode six. They are basically doing nineties. One tree hill though. It's more like a channel show. Like i can't think of any that's a raven yet so it has stuff like that. The kids are the main narrators. The kids are talking to the camera doing stuff like that. And it's totally shot exactly like disney channel show. I thought you know what that's a fun. Little moment of self parody. Here's the thing. I don't hate the people at work for disney. I think it'll be hires. Some really good writers and because they have a lot of money. I just hate disney as a corporation. But let's get back to the cool things. I wanna do so i again. I lost one division. But that first thing you like makes me wanna watch one division very badly. I am a huge fan of tv. Throughout all eras love parody. I love maggio's in. That just sounds great. Especially i think which is where they started their concept like when they were pitching the show. I bet you they picked bewitched. Because i think it works well with the characters. They've chosen one one of which means scarlet witch having her little in the nose we will. She doesn't do the nose will handle but it's like dumb with the same sound sound effects. Saint clair is copyrighted. I don't think is copyrighted. But i think they wanted to. Have it be at least enough of their own thing to be you know marsh. Instead of a rebel. They didn't wanna make stranger things. Oh by the way one of my favorite things about wanna vision is that it's a better season stranger things stranger things season three. We can't go back down the rabbit hole. It'll be a fly by shit on then. And i finally just great characters monica. Rambo is a great lead. Jimmy woo being back as great darcy. Lewis being back is great and having evan peters quicksilver here is a hell of a lot of fun though. It's also a huge shun to the guy played quicksilver in age of all trump. It was like dude. accept it. no one wants to be quicksilver accepted. It's all right. He's kick ass. So that's another franchise that he won't coming back to anything is is that they're using scarlet witch to introduce x. Men like the mutants but scarlett which isn't even a mutant dave. That's like a way further down thing though that you find out usually in the comics 'cause like for the longest time you think she's a mutant in that. She's the child of magneto. Then you find out later trees also. She has been around as much in recent episodes..
Cramer calls on U.S. to build factories to address chip shortage, unemployment
"As the pandemic gradually draws to a close. We've still got to national emergencies that we had to talk about a man money. A horrendously high unemployment rate and the semiconductor shorts is causing major problems for us manufacturing and competitiveness. We need more chips and we need more jobs so why. Kill two birds with one stone. It's time for our government to invest in building the biggest and best complex of semiconductor foundries. That's the factories in the world. And we can do this now. This kind of initiative went out of style decades ago but we know it works because the government just did it with operation warp speed the co vaccine program that got us to trick vaccines in less than a year. Were on a roll. Let's keep it. I don't need to explain. Employments national emergency but what south with the massive government back semiconductor foundry pro. Okay we just heard from general motors. They have all these new indian vehicles but they simply can't make them because they're sending books shortage and modern cars require a lot of tech ford said the same thing could cost them one to two billion this year bleed. You're gonna start hearing about this shortage. Constantly dan we the us really havoc with all sorts of industries and making us less competitive and perhaps even hostage country hostage to a bigger chip customer. The pr see. We got to get ahead of this. Now some of this shortages natural thanks to cova. We've got millions of new homes. That require a lot. Har- we're eating these chips like doritos at halftime. But some of you thanks to globalization are sitting been able to outsource their manufacturing most couple of huge asian operators taiwan's semi which is now the biggest samsung. These are both incredible mazing. Well run companies but they also get so production capacity that they have they hit the entire world including demand from china that hits american companies extra hard because new of our businesses run on just in time ordering. They don't want to sit in a lot of extra components it just by the chips when they need them. That's a quick way to make money save money until it's a shortage. Now that's where we find ourselves. Our companies can't get enough chips because there's not enough. Production were wide and that lack of chips is hurting all sorts of manufacturing including the formation. Gm and ford now. There are two ways to approaches. We can throw up our hands and baked samsung taiwan semi to build more plants. That's been our strategy or anywhere for that matter or we can roll up our sleeves. Like operation warp speed. Remember today when everyone get tested raw. Got javert here can roll up our sleeves and get this job done ourselves. If we're supposed to be the most powerful country in we'd be able to manufacture semiconductors for heaven's sake it's our industry so let me tell you what needs to happen. You might not know it. But america's best tech industry the most intellectual property that is anywhere in tech is in the semiconductor capital equipment space. That's lam research. Kelly tinker applied materials. They had machines that we need to make chips meaning while building gigantic simtek foundries can put more people to work and just about any other research project much more than a much than highway than a bridge. Why stop at roads and bridges and we re establish yourself as a whole new kingpin in manufacturing industry that used to dominate. And hey biden's pick for commerce secretary gina raimondo. She was a venture. Capitals governor of rhode island. I got into politics. She'd be the perfect champion for this project. We can take advantage of low interest rates to issue fifty year semiconductor savings bonds to raise the money for this project partner up with the private sector then. These businesses can pay back. uncle sam. Production gets rolling or chips. Defense ships all sorts of internet of things. Chips should be able to make this stuff domestically in the best in the world. Honestly it's insane. We outsource our semiconductor manufacturing to taiwan south korea. When they're within spitting distance of our biggest wattle china. I love taiwan. I love south korea but we ever get into a shooting war with the chinese. For heaven's sake they'll be right in the middle of it. Hopefully it never comes to that but why would even taking that chance. How much would this cost. We know semi spending up to twenty billion to boost its output. And they're very good at what they do. Let's say let's let's borrow one hundred billion dollars in savings bonds to make the us more semiconductor independent over the next few years but we have to start immediately to alleviate the shortage people intensive national imperative blueprint ready customer for the suppliers. Ready to help so soon. To be secretary raimondo. You've been on the show. Let's get the loan just chip ongoing going and put an end to this chip. Shorter's saving tens of thousands of jobs giving me economy a huge boost. This is what we used to call industrial policy. It worked for vaccines. And i know from work for chips to
Axios CEO Jim VandeHei On Media Post-Trump
"A lot can happen in four years for years ago. Donald trump was being sworn in as our forty fifth president and also four years ago. Axios was founded and delighted to have jim van high co founder and. Ceo of axios with me here today. Great to be here. So and congratulations on your four year anniversary. Thank you we we started. We actually moved up our launch because we interview with donald trump so our first term matched up with his first term. We can leave it all of you to decide what better i show while. I wanna talk about the future of media in the airhead recording this the day after biden's inauguration actually has grown up under the trump presidency in our in this completely new political moment with the biden administration coming out of the first day of the new regime. What are you paying attention to. Yeah i mean we at axios. We cover a broad range of topics so politics technology media business and in the political sphere. Obviously we're spending a lot of time. Thinking about how joe biden the presidency will unfold but also how it will unfold in this kind of wild and wacky media environment where you've got you know roughly half the country that doesn't trust anything that the mainstream media produces and you have this rise in the number of people who believe things that aren't true and i don't think we've ever been here's a country where we've been the last couple years. We just have so much distrust in so much misinformation and so much propaganda in so much of a taking root with people that you and i would say other serious smart people and yet they don't believe the same things that we believe even if a to us they're fact base and that's a huge problem in that environment is going to be surrounding joe biden. And you can't extract politics or biden from media swish together. I think you make a big mistake if you try to understand politics without having a pretty good appreciation of modern media yeah in trump is leaving this legacy of distrust of the media and hatred of the media which he's kind of been able to spread to a broader set of followers. What do you think the long term effects of that negativity toward media will be. I mean i think it's to be determined. I think it's gonna take a long time to repair what is broken. When you have this many people you have a maybe half the country. It's deeply skeptical of media in general and kind of what we would define this truth. It makes it almost impossible to be a functioning society in that environment and i think for the incumbent brands. It's going to be really hard to win back. The trust the people who distrust or mistrust them now i think it creates new opportunities for companies like axios or companies at mina merge over the next couple of years ought to be able to maybe kindle rekindle a relationship with people who were skeptical of things about around for a long time. But it's a problem that has to be solved if we end up essentially de-coupling and what i mean by that is if we have half the country living in at different bubbles where it's not just the media you're consuming but it's the platforms that you're going on to share debate and think about The news that you're consuming. I really worry about that. Consensus essentially it. Truly is to america's it's not just sort of generically saying to america's like we would have to america's and we have to solve for that and we have to solve that while also figuring out how do we put rules around that big tech platforms that allow for people have freedom of speech but also be able to navigate the world without Mistrust in propaganda and nonsense in noise pulsing through the devices in the platforms. They're spending the vast majority of their time on and exit at axios takes a pretty a political approach which that feels like a good stance to take coming into the next four years and through what happened. In the trump administration was that something that you foresaw or in kind of taking a more neutral stance or was that something that you just kind of. We're going to do anyway and all of a sudden maybe you're seeing some positive effects yet. No we'd always planned being that way in. Our view is that world is anymore. Noise what the world needs is more clinical fact based reporting done by people who have expertise so that you can get people who might be skeptical of media to believe in beedi again and for people to stay better information to make better decisions and that's why we started. Axios is our thesis. The thesis was correct. Was people almost everyone. We knew their minds were just jammed and crammed with information and they had less time to actually think about information at a time where all of us need to know a lot more across more topics. It's really hard to do my job. Unity your job if you don't really understand politics or technology or social platforms or media or some business trends. Let's a lot. It's a lot to ask of you and ask of me and so if you can't bring more efficiency to that process if you can't bring more clarity to the information that people are consuming it's just gonna get too difficult for the end user the consumer And so even though i mean are even as i think. A lot of people are appreciating this kind of super brief approach to news. People are consuming so much news. I feel like in the past few years because there's just so much going on with trump and then out of course that the pandemic there's this idea of the trump bump that's driven a lot of subscriptions in really helps a lot of media publications at the same time that trump has kind of led to some of these negative effects that sustain. What do you think happens to. Some of the media publications that have benefited. Most from the trump bump my assumption was that the trump bump which fade people would stop paying so much attention to politics but just had so much craziness the corona virus. Getting worse. Not getting better. Obviously the mob at the capital still persistent fear that there could be more violence as a result of the election results. So we're not seeing that decrease yet though. I assume the decrease will come to be honest. I think it'd be really healthy for all of us. If if traffic to political coverage decrease tremendously. I honestly it might sound weird because people create create a politico and we obviously do a fair amount of political coverage here. But i think people gone nuts. I think people are consuming. Wait way way too much political content. I see in our traffic patterns. I see in my own family. We as a species were not meant to spend this much time thinking about talking about debating sharing opining on politics. It's not healthy. I always compare it to a doritos. Like into real nice. I love him in like if you have one once in a while. It's good but if you eat two or three bags at day you're going to be a fat slob and you're not going to be healthy and i worry that that's what we're all doing with politics is driving people crazy and i think the world would be better place if we all got a life outside of our phone and our and our websites

Closing Out the NBA Bubble With Malika Andrews
"So Melita. Today is the day where are we reaching you right now for the listener if you could describe what's around you what you're looking at potentially I suppose the last time. I'm in my hotel room at the Grand Destino. Coronado Springs. Hotel. And this has been my my room, my home, my apartment for the last one, hundred, seven days Melita Andrews has been inside the NBA bubble as long as any other member of the media. It feels like moving I'm down to the bits and bobs that are no longer fun like the half eaten bag of Doritos did I want to decide what I want to do with and the? Is that I have to decide really to these need to stay or go but I only have about two hours until I am getting picked up. And then you will be back among us out years. So Melita as. The most successful covert related experiment in America comes to an end. What's the current status of the bubble? Now are people still abiding by all the protocols yesterday officially, the bubble quote unquote burst and it means a green yellow and red zone which coordinates to the colors of our credentials. So previously where I was staying was all green, which was the first tier, wear players, referees, select media, members, coaches, MBA staff were, and those folks got tested every day when the Lakers won that became more squishy because the governor's owners or whatever you want to call them like Guinea boss who was in yellow were able to come down onto the court, the agents and family members and thinking of folks like rich Paul. Who had watched the championship in yellow were then to come into the Green Zone to party all night long with the Los Angeles Lakers this hotel opens to the public tomorrow while so we're literally the last people in here. There are maybe half a dozen MBA staff trying to make sure that. is getting figured out I actually went to the package to check for one more package and it was like last packages for Lebron James Lacks packages for Jimmy Butler last. For, Andrews. Melinda Adams all lined up sort of all in one area. So. Melinda when the bubble burst yesterday, my producer said. Oh Melita. You are not going to be ready. And she's right I'm not. What Melinda was referring to what she was warning you about is what it's like on the outside he yeah. Well, because everything when I first got here, there were a lot of folks who joked. When you got out of quarantine you served your time Oh, your your time is up. And that always bothered me mainly because when you look at the prison systems in the United, states that has been a hotbed for corona virus in many cases because people are in such close quarters and so. They couldn't be more different than the discomfort that folks who are incarcerated here in the united. States are going through as they're battling covid and what that means. People keep asking me here I get texts from my family I get it from the people who are checking us out. Are you so excited to go home I think when I came down here for months ago there was a real hope that I had that it would sort of be like this machine I would go in, get spit back out on the other side and things would be different. Country Standpoint of where we at with CORONA VIRUS AND That anxiety. Is. Still there.
The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks
"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.
Should I Let My Little Brother Move In With Us?
"It's of Tuesday and this is the Ramsey call of the day part of the Ramsey networks. Lincoln Nebraska Dylan is Pie Dylan what's up? So. Excited to talk you. Know. I'm calling because I'm currently in baby step two with my husband. And we originally started at twenty, five thousand and we're down to about sixteen thousand. And my parents are going through a really bad divorce and my sixteen year old little brother would like to move in with me and my husband We're kind of at odds about it because. I want to let him move in but my husband. Wants to stay get intense and he's concerned. It will be too much of an expense if we let him move in. Are. You do you live near where he lives now? No they live about forty, five minutes away from Moscow I guess not too bad but he would stay in his same school community as a car. no she would transfer to school here in mine town. About forty five minutes from here. And what is the financial condition of your parents? Very poor they've filed bankruptcy and they are still even after the bankruptcy twenty, five, thousand and. What's your household income? Sixty five, thousand. What costs are associated with bringing him in food. food he would be would have to help him get a car because he doesn't have one and with daycare with my son Conflict with school scheduling. Bus Doesn't run front of Your House. You sorry. There's a bus not run for the school in front of Your House. No. But he he could. He could walk for a while it would just be hard one turn you really cold. How Far Away is it? About, a mile here That's not bad as nice little hike. uphill both ways and snow right You could tell his grandkids about it some day. It sounds like things are pretty miserable for him I want to help him. Me Too. So how is he miserable enough to? Take on some other forms of misery in order to get out of there like for instance, when he moves in with you, he starts he starts a job immediately and I saves up right quick and gets him a thousand dollar car. And he pays for it. He would be willing to work I I'm just concerned it would affect his grades. I'm concerned that he's living in a cesspool and he needs to get out. I'm not, concerned. About his range. He needs to work. If I'm your husband and you came to me and said, look, he'll take a job and he'll work this many hours and make much money He'll pay US fifty bucks a month for food and he'll save up to everything else and beyond a budget the way we teach him in order to save up and pay cash for his furlough thousand dollar car that we're going to help him get. We could be saving his life please let's do this for my brother. I think that's a regional thing. But if your little brother wants to move in there and sit on the couch and eat Doritos, all afternoon and suck. And play video games and sit on his butt. And then gripe because he ain't got a car that you gave him that he's entitled to because he breathes air this is different animal you following me. So I'm just I if he is as desperate to get out of that mess as it sounds like he is then he's desperate enough to do some crap. When he hits the road overture housing, it's get his life straightened out. I'm sorry for him. It's a tough road. He's at such situation. He's in his parents are both completely unplugged. Basically emotionally have abandoned him financially of abandoned him and he's sixteen years old. Let's talk. I'm. heartbreaking. But. If I'm your husband, your husband, he doesn't WanNa take a project on. He wants to bring in bring in someone that he can be a blessing to. If I'm your husband that's what I would be sitting on and so I think you can lay out some guidelines and then talk to your little brother and say these are our conditions if you will meet those, you're welcome. And of course, when you live under my roof, you live by my rules to. Come home drunk at sixteen years old. You're not doing dope it sixteen years old you're not doing you know out I just fill in the blank right? On Sunday. We're going to church or this is what we do at our house. Okay. If you live in my house, you do what we do at my house. You don't WanNa live there. It's okay. You don't like that that's live somewhere else. But when you're under my roof, this is high works. That's kind of old school. Should we did have a basic savings account for the car? Yeah. Just help him. I don't care if he puts it in a fruit jar. Just won't even I just wanted to sixty hours a week and go get him thousand dollars. Right? Quick. Okay sounds good. Just Bust I. Mean I just want him bust his butt man I want he's got a lot of emotion. He can burn off a bunch of it working. Yeah I agree I think that he's definitely willing to do what it takes anything more I just had reservations about forcing him to work so much I don't I don't have any reservations about it at all the best thing ever happened to him. He he won't die from it when you're working really really hard right before you pass out, she went to worry about work killing you won't kill you. So it's okay. You're going to be. All right. That's going to be the best thing ever happened to him. You're giving him safe emotional environment to live in someone that loves him and actually cares about his well being you're a good person. You're good sister. Well done. Just put some guidelines on it. So your husband feels like he's participating in. Process it's helpful and not enabling a bunch of crap.
"doritos" Discussed on Food Scientists Podcast
"Because we'll be like strawberry cheesecake. Or you know different flavors. I'm not really excited about them, but this video may be a second. If they can put sauce like if they can put you know the marshmallow sauce into the rocky road. They could put any sauce. into any blizzard. UAE IN! We've done one hundred thirty episodes of this podcast. Brian and I have talked about blizzards for literally years before that created our own. We have never once gone down the rabbit hole of what if you? Detect decided to take a regular blizzard. And make it a royal by adding column of Sauce in the Middle. And to be honest. I think that just like you. Camp dismissed the concept royal lizards, because the the the ratio is usually off with what you get in the middle as opposed to the rest, and it's too much of something, except for the reasons with the peanut butter I would drink a whole cup of just the peanut butter sauce so right there Bryan so that's what I did is I went to dairy, Queen and. I was like I would like a royal blizzard, but can I have the blizzard part the peanut Butter Cup, Lizard and the column of filling be the peanut butter sauce. And I was like that's the because. I figured if I just had this idea I'm gonNA. Go with what's the one. Brian would be most jealous of and that's what I came up with. And The woman at the drive thru came through like her magic voice came Dash. You know we actually have A. Reese's Brownie Royal Blizzard. We could do that one with the peanut butter sauce. And, so I did so Liz Brownie and peanut butter cups in the blizzard with a column of the peanut butter sauce in the middle. It's a lot of peanut butter. A lot of peanut butter would not too much, but it was not too much because you had peanut, but it was like a Sunday, but it was like a blizzard. Sunday and I was like the whole time I was like I literally got home at wrote it down on a piece of paper and a had to remember to make that my food experience. So. Why haven't we done that Brian?.

It was tears. I you know I got glossy eyed. Yeah I got a little I got a little. I thought the second half commercials were much better than the first half. I like that list. That ad meter sure who had meter is or how they rate these ads but I did like I liked all that they they mentioned. I thought the Alexa ad from Amazon with Ellen Generous and Porsche Rossi drowsy. I thought that was very good. I like that the idea. Do you have like how do we live before we could just kinda ask Alexa. And they kind of went through different historical funny situation. I thought that was that was that was a nice ad that basically sleep pointed to the value of this but also spoke to the brand the brand power of Alexa and Amazon in general over. Okay I didn't I didn't think any particular the super funny Although I did like the the Bill Murray ad for jeep was pretty funny.

Lemonade with Abigoliah Schamaun and guest Nell Gifford
"I am a feminist but today Yoga I overheard a woman in the shoe area saying will men men like to claim this way but women to scrub. That's the difference between men and women how they clean and I wanted to say. Excuse me I don't want to be rude. But these binary ways that we talk about men and women do invite a certain culture that says that somehow Manohla always like this and women are like this best you kind of know to cleaning trend. You kind of noted agenda trend. Don't undermine that but saying men do and women do that. It's actually not that helpful but what I wanted to say. Even more was how common link to clean because I missed that pond. I heard that women's scrubbing wing section. How to clean because as far as I can make out not at all but what I did say was nothing talk? Get involved in this lady's life I don't know she doesn't need be tapping around the shoulder and telling her about does not but it's annoying. That would have been really fun though. So if you just gone up and being excuse me I don't think you should prescribed a cleaning gender binary now must stay and then just like and then like the little bells you know the the meditation Gong goes off and then you just evaporate. That bowl sounds off bowl. That could've been my interruption. Maybe it could have Donald Binary that yeah. I must not do that because I feel. It's going to be steeply culturally insensitive. I don't think we should throw that right. I'm a feminist but the last time I I was on the guilty feminist podcast I tweeted about it. I put it on instagram. I shared it on facebook and my mother called me and said congratulations nations. I've listened to the PODCAST. It's very good. You're very funny. Deborah's a lovely person.

I think you put a man into feminist. Yeah stop it right now. It's very on brand for me. I can't spell it the best time I remember in the second grade we were allowed to pick five words to be on our own spelling tests. That were special to us that we needed to learn how to spell so I had to put my name on spelling second grade. I was like nine and I still was like no the nine in the second grade. I think so are nine and six. Are you six. I think I'm nine and everything when in doubt I'm always like when I was nine number you would not nine. I'm a feminist but if I had to give up feminism or yoga for one week it'd depend where my head was Some weeks I really need yoga. I get it. I'm the same way I mean it's only a week.

I WANNA puncher. That is the exact same thing as a guy coming up to me. Going your your tits. Look good in that top. It is not to be discussed. It is only to be enjoyed in silence. Yeah I agree because on the live tour I had this this big green sequent Cape and one night. I happened to be walking posted on summers and they had the same green sequence in full please swimsuit saw so. I thought pretty funny if I had that on them with trousers over the tall swimsuit was like a body suit type thing green sequence and I thought it was funny and kind of cabaret but look good and then afterwards one of the other acts message me and said I just want to say that my friend was in the audience tonight and you really inspired her to buy a swimsuit because she didn't WanNa buy some soup for holidays and you're such an inspiration to she. Thought if Debra can do it also the swimsuit so let me a fucking swimsuit inspiration. Yeah I want people look at me and think I can't do that. Why was it no look at the swimsuit go? I would never be able to pull it off. Don't find inspiration in my no. I wanted to have it. What does that mean? Yeah I've been able to let it go. I've not been able to let it go. I'm feminist bus. I saw a cat dressed two two two so that it looks like it had arms coming out of it cites it was like a front only situation like a babe but it looks at the front like the cat is wearing wearing a pink Tutu with point shoes and my first thought was. Where can I get one of those for toast? It's not a feminist outfit. Not Not that balance isn't feminist but to address your cat in. I guess well we have to question the agency of the cat at this point. Yeah does does the CAT WANNA be in sequence toast would no. I'm a feminist but I think top gear in the grand tour.

Aw please so I'm saying blitz. I think that should be the new BREXIT HASHTAG DOC is Hashtag nope blitz absolutely so my story in terms of Lemons and lemonade. I think my whole career is actually lemonade. That I've made the lemon of
Malibu Creek Murder
"In August of two thousand eighteen officials from five different law enforcement agencies held a town meeting this is where they publicly acknowledged that they had no theory no suspect or no answers regarding the murder of Tristen Bo debt that same month month the Hollywood reporter stated that quote two sources with connections to the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff's station. Tell the Hollywood reporter that detectives are working to assemble a physical composite of the tristen Bo debt shooter and are compiling a list of of persons of interest. This of course is news to everyone news that the La Sheriff's department had anything going to go on and all it seems perhaps the sheriff's department started to put some things together here. There is a weird thing a really weird thing in my opinion we have not only these strange weird shootings going on in the area area that had been going on for two years now. There's also been an uptick in burglaries on October ninth two thousand eighteen. The sheriff's department issued an official update on recent burglaries in the unincorporated calabasas Malibu areas it read on Tuesday Tuesday October ninth two thousand eighteen at approximately three a m a burglary occurred at the Gora Calabasas community center located at at the twenty seven thousand block of Malibu Hills Road in Calabasas detectives believed that the same suspect who was possibly involved in eight other burglaries glories use a rock to break the front glass door a vending machine inside the location was broken into with Iraq and numerous food food items were stolen. The suspect then walked away in an Unknown Direction Major Crimes Detectives along with other department resources are at the location today conducting a follow up investigation the most recent burglaries have occurred over a three month period. The suspect is described as a male adult slender build and wearing dark clothing. There were eight other recent burglaries that were laid out in this press release. We won't go through all of them as it's quite boring portion of the story but I'll give you the dates. There were two in October of two thousand in eighteen. There were two in September of two thousand eighteen one in July of two thousand eighteen and then we had one in March of two thousand thousand seventeen and then to an October of two thousand and sixteen none of these break ins involved residents they we're all professional buildings and commercial structures. Police stated that they felt that the burglaries were all connected but why did the police feel feel the need to issue a press release about some minor burglaries will probably because there's a bunch of shootings that they didn't tell the public about so since he got a bunch of back lash on that they probably thought we need to come clean about these break ins well yet and people were starting to wonder could the there'd be a suspected connection could law enforcement be thinking that there's a connection between the burglaries and the shootings yeah so speaking to the Media Era Sheriff Jim McDonnell said investigators weren't yet ready to link the two together he said but we won't rule anything out he said said but it would be premature to connect these cases nonetheless the media had already jumped to this conclusion that the hunt for the burglary suspect back in the hunt for the shooter were in fact one in the same articles and TV news stories appearing during the first week of October two thousand eighteen eighteen reported a massive that massive searches were being conducted by the Los Angeles Sheriff's department in Malibu County a dozen officers on ATV's and they're like decked out in tactical gear. They were riding through the park aided by helicopters and bloodhounds. They were pulling out all the stops for this vending machine robber who stole doritos yeah. It's pretty pathetic when you think about the lack of attention in the lack of effort that they gave to M- trees Richardson it emerged that indeed the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department wanted to question the armed burglar about Tristan's murder there appeared to be two reasons for law enforcement's interest in this thief one was that a surveillance footage that was found from the September thirtieth break in at Malibu Valley Farms Construction Office showed that the burglar who stole nothing but food again was dressed in tactical tactical gear was wearing a headlamp in a mask and was carrying a rifle. The burglary location was less than a quarter of a mile from from the campground where Tristan Bodak was killed. The other reason is that a park maintenance worker reported talking to a man who quote fit the description of the arm burglar. It's not clear whether this man was actually carrying a weapon when he approached the park worker but apparently apparently the man asked for a ride out of the canyon. He wanted to go to a different area a mile or so south of the camp campground and he says this is because there's so many police in the area the worker refused to drive this man anywhere and actually his report the Workers Kerr's report triggered these these big time searches that we're now seeing rain so even where we have quote we haven't linked it to bow debts killing lying but we certainly haven't ruled
Why Are Opossums Awesome?
"Today's adulthood. episode is brought to you by smart water twenty years ago. Smart water, reimagined, what water could be from thoughtful bottle designed to supporting smart people who are changing our world through fresh thinking. Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, bring stuff Lauren Vogel bomb here. If you live in North America, you've probably seen Virginia a possum, classification Delta's Virginia. Ana maybe the unfortunate creature was dead on the road. Or maybe it was very much alive on your porch. Eating garbage in the middle of the night. But in either case, you might have thought. Oh, gross a possum, but you would have been off base on several counts. First of all possums live in Australia, and are also a marsupial, which means they raise their young in a pouch like a kangaroo, but they're completely different species than the animal currently snuggling with a half eaten bag of Doritos at the bottom of curbside trash can in North Carolina, which is correctly. And a possum we spoke with Richard offs. Feld senior scientists at the institute of ecosystem studies in Millbrook New York. He said folks get very confused about this. I've had people tell me triumphantly that they discovered building plans for possum nestboxes, and they planned to install dozens of them to encourage possums to multi. Play on their property. But when I looked at the plans, they were designed for brush tailed possums in Austria completely useless for possums in North America. So with that part settled opossums, aren't that gross? Even if they wouldn't mind taking that moldy pad Thai from the back of your refrigerator off of your hands. They may look a little creepy. What would that long hairless prehensile tail the mouthful of haphazard teeth in the beady eyes, but opossums are the studiously groomed and most likely disease free wildlife heroes of your neighborhood. It's a common misconception possibly prompted by their bumbling swagger that opossums often carry rabies or distemper. In fact, they rarely get these diseases because their body temperature is too low to make them susceptible. Not only do opossums not carry these diseases. The presence of an apostle in your yard is your best bet for combating lime disease. A two thousand nine study explored whether black legged ticks the disease vector for Lyme disease might be regulated by wildlife that they parasite ties of fifteen forest welling, mammals and ground. Nesting birds opossums were the only ones to destroy the vast. Already of all of the black legged ticks the tried to feed on them. Over ninety five percent us feld who co-authored. The study said our calculations indicated that a single possum is capable of killing several thousand larval ticks per week during the late summer peak. We also know that of those ticks that do successfully feed on on a possum only small fraction will become infected with the lime disease bacterium so opossums are protective in two ways killing ticks and preventing infection. A study by the same research team published in July of two thousand eighteen in the journal ecology found the tick-borne disease risk was reduced in areas. Where possums were present. For an animal that does more than its fair share of hobbling into traffic and is known for flopping over like a corpse at the merest whiff of danger opossums are perhaps surprisingly intelligent to begin with weak eyesight at a nocturnal nature, both contribute to the fact that you're probably more familiar with the site of a debt possum that alive. One. In addition, their primary defense mechanism playing dead is almost entirely involuntary a reaction to extreme stress that leaves the apartment coma for a few minutes to a couple of hours and a coma at possum can take a beating that would kill other animals their size. This then is a great strategy. If your mortal enemy is a bear. But not so great if it's Toyota. So if for example, your dog corners and a possum one night in the backyard. Don't worry the possum may listen show its teeth attempt to look scary because it's frightened. But the last thing wants is to tangle with your four legged friend, it will invariably lay down and play dead until the threat gets bored and passes opossums are non-aggressive docile creatures far more afraid than they are to be feared, and they're also studiously clean alike. Cats opossums are constantly grooming themselves with their paws and tongue partly in order to make sure they're parasite free. But also keep themselves. Cool. They lack sweat glands. So grooming is like a possum air conditioning. And they do it to keep themselves smelling like well, nothing as we established possums aren't great at protecting themselves in a standoff with a predator. So it behooves them to stay odor. Neutral, part of the reason of possums have the reputation for being smelly has to do with one other defense mechanism the smell of death. A once in a possum goes into its theatrical coma if. Predator continues to mess with it. The apostle may excrete smelling mucous from glands in its anus. This has been to signal. Hey, this possum is definitely dead and possibly so entirely dead that it'll make you sorry, you ate it. Speaking of opossums are really smart about what they eat. Because it turns out they have great memories. Once in a possum tastes, a chemical. That doesn't agree with it. Will remember avoid the smell of it for a year afterwards, though, opossums are immune to some things that would poison other mammals, including most snake venoms possums are biologically fascinating, which led to some confusion among early Europeans in the new world. Their story was the male possum made it through the female opossums snout, which led to her sneezing out her babies into her marsupial pouch. Of course, this is not scientifically accurate, but possums definitely do things a little differently. First of all a male. Possum has a forked penis, but it's not meant for the females nostrils female opossums have double vagina and twin utera possum embryos develop for about thirteen days until they're large enough to migrate down the birth canal and emerge about size of house flies to continue developing in the mother's pouch. Although dozens of them. We'll be born the mother only has thirteen teats. So that's probably how many will be able to survive into
