A Big Warning for Big Tech

"If you thought this week was tough for technology buckle up because a chart showing even more pain ahead for this sector turned mastercard or worth joins us now to break it all down Carter, what are you looking at? You Bet thanks. So I mean before we get to the charges important to say that equities are not annuities right? I mean give backs, dip selloffs corrections the they're a part of investing in. So it's always hard though to figure out how far the decline will go. Let's try to figure that out couple charts. One of five the first one you see here I thought we'd start with this. It's going back to the early nineteen nineties. It's a two panel. Chart on the top. You see the Nasdaq composite. Obviously, it's well above its dot com peak in two thousand. But what's really interesting ironic and telling the bottom panel, the Nasdaq even with all of this has not recouped its relative losses to the SNP. Since the dotcom peaks that bottom panel without circle I drunk, you still haven't made relative high, which just shows how treacherous is to buy into the top of a bubble in any event the here, and now let's go. To the next chart. So now we're looking at a chart of the Nasdaq, no judgments or annotations, and yet what you can see is a clear break in trend I've simply drawn the trend line draws itself, and what we know is we have broken trend. This is the first break of the well-defined trend line that's been in effect since the march low. So where to well take a look at the next, what we know, and this is now the percentage decline were. Down Eleven and a half percent for the Nasdaq index overall. But once you broken trend, what is your reference point of? Could it go down? Thirteen could fifty of course it good. So the next reference point look at the next chart is the January February peak from which the market broke out. We know the S. and P. of course has already gone all the way back to it's generally Feb repeat and so were the market to simply go back to the peak. Of the pre pandemic. Hi, final chart. What it would be is not an eleven and a half percent decline, which is what we've seen so far. But then we're looking at something in the order of about eighteen and so is that a possibility you bet it is. A pretty good testament to first loss. Best loss if something does crack hard, it's usually right to try to take some measures and. Even, as Jeff said, we are not oversold. Okay. So this is specifically Carter for the Nasdaq for the S. and P. Five hundred, which already said breached that pre pandemic level. Is it smoother sailing or because of the tech leadership, we're also GONNA see a decline that that mirrors this but may not be as deep. Well, that's right. So then it's a question about the markets construction we know top by stocks or twenty, five percent. We know that interestingly just before this crack, the top fifteen stocks as a wait just finally exceeded the dot com peak in ninety nine, and so the question is the Nasdaq composite down eleven percent the S. and P. Down only seven percent is there more to go. Well, if the parts composed the whole, the whole comprises the parts if the big parts have more to go the presumption is that the SNP as more nego- Carter to see you, we'll see you later on options action Carter Braxton Worthy Cornerstone Macro Jeff, males you agree with Carter in this call for a decline of eighteen and a half percent on the Nasdaq from the recent peak. Yeah I do and I think the levels he points out or a really clear in that you have the pre pandemic peak but then you also have the upward sloping two hundred day moving average if you look at the triple cues, for example so I think that would be a really natural resting point for this particular correction and I do worry about the overall market just given the weight of some of these names and because I think the rotation and the cyclicality isn't necessarily prime to take off, that may not carry the day. In terms of the broad market I, think in order for that rotation to happen, you need to see things like consumer confidence, the labor market continued to heal. You know we had this divergence between the labor market and how consumers were actually behaving because of this income replacement that is now gone. So I think the uncertainty there needs to heal a lot more before you can see that rotation and have that value cyclicality carry the market higher Steve In cars world in which this decline happens do your cyclical stocks do better than tech? So I would have agreed with Mr Mills a couple of weeks ago that all of them get pole down to General I at the same rate and velocity the general but the the issue that I'm I'm I'm looking at now is that I m seeing if you chart chemicals right now chemicals don't look so bad on their on their ETF while tech does so to the to answer your question chemicals and sickle goals will rally even with the S&P falling out of bed.

Unemployment Claims Held Steady Last Week

"And the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits was unchanged last week at 884,000 assigned that layoffs remains stock at a historically lie high level six months after the viral pandemic flattened the economy. A great dotcom senior economic analyst Mark Hamrick has been watching the numbers each week and spoke with comes Tom Hudler. What's the headline here today? I think that we're not making as much improvement with the U. S economy, particularly on the job market as we'd like, and I think there's some real risk here going into the fall. Whether it's because of this more famous From temporary to permanent job loss. You know, you looked at, for example, that number the reference there, which is the new claims administered by all the states, and then you look at the program. That's the pandemic Unemployment assistance program away had a nearly equal new number of more than 800,000. So you look across the landscape between the state administered programs. And that Ladder program, which is meant to help gig workers and entrepreneurs were really talking about a total of about 29 million forms of assistance going out across the country affecting that many people, So you know, this is not normal by it by a long shot. How does today's number compared to the weeks before the pandemic really exploded? I know it's obviously a much larger number. But expert What kind of numbers are we talking about? Comparison was great. Great question, Tom. So you know, earlier in the And when we thought we just sort of the you know, moving along at the normal clip, we were averaging a little more than 200,000 new jobless claims every week, so just on the headline number alone again more than 800,000 administered by all the States. We're four x that other number and that doesn't even get to the other parts of the programs that are being administered again under the pandemic, or cares that program

At one point, she urged progressive representative Alexander Acosta Cortez to adopt her. I'll tell you I wish Cortez would adopt me. I'll be honest, I'm with her on that one. She says. As far as my dad goes politically, we agree on absolutely nothing. We just both happen to have common sense when it comes to our current president. Stop staining him. Claudia tweeted using a term, referring to someone who admires someone or something the point of obsession. She added that her mother was selfish for pushing her line of work.

Um I'm going to be a whole lot of thinking for once. Take it. What does she want? Lawyer? She wants to sue her mom trapped. Trying to understand what does she want? No, she said she wants emancipation. By the way, if Kellyanne Conway was my mother, I'd probably want to get an attorney as well. Those air alternative fax my mother is Mrs alternative facts, But I wonder why, like, what is she trying to do? I want to sue my mom because my mom is a bad parent. And she cares more about Donald Trump in her own fan. I mean, I guess you could see your mom for that. I wonder how that would work. Anyway. Go ahead, Shaun going to be, you know, taking e mails on my email at sea and Conway five at gmail dot com. That's C M. As in movie Conway, five. A. Stein, Can you please write down that email? I want to get Kelly and complex daughter on a radio show I want. I want to get around the show. I'm serious. It's worth an email. I'm sure she got probably 200 other emails. But, you know, I'm sure she'll do Vegas local radio. Why wouldn't she dotcom And if you have any information on pro bono lawyers in the New Jersey or D C areas I really, really appreciate it. Um Because this is really getting out of control tonight. I have to get out of the situation of men. Um, and it sucks that I'm kind of being used as a publicity stunt. The PR son. It actually sucks. That's like and I don't even know what to say. Right now. I'm just kind of just in shock. I'm kind of just like And I can't even cry anymore because I'm so numb like two crying like I just can't But please don't believe anything that you see, especially like my parents saying that they're doing it for the family. They're not like they're not at all. I'm literally giving you the tea. I'm giving you all the realist. They didn't say anything about this. Um they literally just tweeted about it. Um, my dad doesn't care about me and Eric. He's never cared about me. Um, he probably doesn't even know my middle name. Which is really sad, but it's true. You know, he never really cared about me my whole life he always belittle when I was younger. My dad physically abused me a lot. Um Right here in this very room and My mom is standing with my mom. You know, my mom got me arrested. You know, She's very, very physically abusive, long, very, very, very abusive. I've been belittles and badgered Mine's higher life, And I just said this to them, you know? You guys putting on this whole show? You know, they want attention. So you know, then putting it on this whole show of them Leaving? I guess isn't really Going to be effective. You know, I think they're just scared that I'm going to emancipate myself, which I am.

"dotcom" Discussed on WTOP

"Dotcom. W T O P at 2 35 former FBI lawyer will plead guilty to altering an email in the first criminal case arising from US Attorney John Durham's investigation of ties between Russia and the 2016 Trump campaign. The case against Kevin Kline. Smith is likely to be cheered by President Trump as he looks to expose what he says is FBI wrongdoing as it investigated whether the Trump campaign was coordinating with the Kremlin in 2016 for the election. Democrats charged the Durham investigation is politically motivated meant to re litigate and already closed investigation. Klein Smith is reportedly expected to admit he doctored an email so that it said a former trump advisor was not a CIA source. As a result, the FBI did not monitor Carter Page as a possible agent of a foreign power. Well, Rush has been quiet today, a day after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he warned Russian officials against offering bounties to militants to kill US troops in Afghanistan. The silence is notable considering President Trump said. At one point, it was a hoax. Russia said the same Pompeo told Radio Free Europe that not only did he address the issue But so did US military officials, Pompeo said in his own words, What we've said, is this. If the Russians are offering money to kill Americans, or for that matter, Westerners as well. There will be an enormous price to pay. Russia has long armed and financed the Taliban. But this effort essentially to put contracts out on US troops is a new level of concern, considering at least three Americans who are believed to have died this way. A J. Green W T O pay news to 36.

Apple. spotify and many many others I mean how you can make money right from your own podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need in one spot in one place simple and effective. So get yourself anchor make voice her. All Right Patriots welcome again to another episode of the Midnight Patriots. Here from the Mile High Command Center the paper to PRICELESS DOT COM studios. Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs. ETC etc.. and. This law requires that good cops deal with bad cops and report the. I don't see any of those three articles as a bad idea. Okay. Now, obviously being accused of something he's not the same as being guilty of it but. The at the very least, there is some sort of relief release mechanism or shooting relief mechanism there. To help solve the problem, a lot of people don't realize that the qualified immunity is not even really a statute. is a precedent put forward as. A. Means of fighting the drug war. which I won't get into that but that's complete total violation of the fourth minute. anyways. But it's part of a reduction of of constitutional liberties. that includes things like civil liability are shooting civil forfeiture asset forfeiture so Dumb any comments on that I mean I feel like those are good ways to actually start solving the problem as opposed to to complete quote defunding. are there issues with it certainly, but I think the mechanisms are in place to make it make closeable your thoughts. will allow me if I may. I'm going to step back, yours. You know maybe we can have social worker. With. Police escort as such. They, have. Like that in place in every department. The key of it is. There so understaffed that they cannot take on the type of workload that. A METRO AREA DENVER A. Atlanta Baltimore Mineapolis. They don't have the resources for that and. If I may be so fold. We have politicians in place in offers that hey, you can get by on a two hundred, fifty thousand dollars budget for the year for that program alone. It doesn't work like that well, then and to your point directly wouldn't that justify an increase in the overall police budget to put people like that in place as opposed to defunding will again you've gotta remember you're dealing with politicians that they can get it in their pocket. It's all just a day for them. Absolutely I agree with that cryptic your thoughts. Well, yeah and I mean that's kind of where I was going is that you know not defunding the police but. They need to instead of defunding them they need to add funds to them because to make those kinds of programs or to hire more people that they can. Do that they pay them. I mean. You know I know cops were scared life every day dealing with any of those situations I mean. In a sense, you need to pay the the therapist or the counseling or whoever those people are you need to pay them. A. In, a in a matter of speaking pay wage worth their life. Oh, absolutely I mean everybody got to eat. We all agree with that concept but job comes with certain wrists that they shouldn't be naive to. When walking into the situation I mean agree or disagree.

Of today, we're going to be discussing the defunding police movement an idea that has picked up steam recently has become a rallying cry for far left protesters, rioters and seemingly anarchist groups. And we wanted to put some thoughts out there about this It seems to me that. We have a problem that requires more of a solution than just defunding. Systemic racism in my opinion is Beth. now, some people would with that. That said. If the narrative that we're going to be that is being shoved down our throats is to be believe that people of Color of. All Ages? Seated shining see in this country are being quote hunted by racist armed hate-mongers. Now that said if if that is in fact, the case. Why would you wanNA define the one organization that has the legal authority in the equipment. To protect you. That seems like a pretty fall said, it seems like a false dichotomy false comparison a false premise to start conversation PHOENIX. What are your thoughts? You know I'm GonNa take this a step further. The phone, the police movement. That is going to move a certain direction and stop. Once, they have figured out that. The one entity. That has sworn upon their own life to defend. There's like. Is Actually doing the job. We. Look at Minneapolis looks. legit. Atlanta's for the three top of my head. All of them have the same premise of less defunding. On the police, define the police. It went a step further into. Let's abolish the police install a private. Very. Force. That has absolutely no training. As No understanding of each individual law that a grand jury a whatever. If. Going to try and paying on. A criminal, a offender, a day walker anybody. Whatever you WANNA call it. So. My name might taking this step further into the question is what exactly we're trying to de-fund. I. Do numerous other people and no. One can give me an answer. It's always just defined defunding. Okay. So Great. Now we have a narratives being Ramdan, our throat. When all in all actuality is, hey, let's just bringing this back to the wild west little set like men up. Yeah I mean that's exactly the way I. See it is if you're going to defend the police and define them then yeah. What we're GONNA have is is you know the your your proverbial gun show earth sugar your gunfight at high noon in the middle of the street. That said cryptic. What are your thoughts on the matter? While I mean if you go I, find that going to be very odd if they try and go wild west because you know the same group behind the protests in the defunding, the police are the same ones who want to raise taxes and have all these limitations on ammo and guns and everything else that. You're going to be able to do that. We're going to have to throw stones at each other. Because, they're going to keep trying to get rid of. Guns and AMMO. I mean. It's maximilian face with white gloves and We'll go back to sword fight fifth. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because you know guns don't have near the range of a sword. A you know. That's an excellent point. I mean, they're they're trying to you know the presumptive destroyed comedy Slimy Joe. Biden. Has Basically announced that east common for the guns and they're going to basically raise taxes on firearms and ammunition to where they are completely unaffordable to anyone that's not in the billionaire boys You know that'd be that being said. How and how the me get to this point I mean you're you're talking about defunct not not obviously not us we think it's a crazy. Lunatics idea. What do they want to replace it with? I mean, let's let's be honest mental Minnesota in Minneapolis the same city council that saw fit to abolish the police department Arben has hired mercenaries for the private security force. Now. I see a far more disturbing outcome here boys, and that is that you know we have people acting with the fourth and backing of the law. And have no oath to uphold the constitution they're loyal only to money. That's a win win. If you're a leftist Marxist wants to light the constitution on fire because you have thugs running around at the under the color and force of law with automatic weapons. Now, if people think that trump is ending in in the army, what do you think's going to happen when we have quote unquote law enforcement that has no that are basically political puppets. Call that. KGB Custodio or exactly. Exactly. You'RE GONNA turn from. You know right now everybody's all up in. Arms with you know Military. Being, sent to Seattle and stuff like that like military forces or. Whatever that whatever they are that they're complaining about having martial law budget they wanNA with the funding this which are gonNA run into is you're actually GONNA run into mercenaries Latsis. You know either they're working for the buck or they think they're doing good by be judge jury and executioner for anybody they come across you know doing something they don't like because nobody can have their own opinion like and be civil about it. It's either you agree with me or you're wrong. that. You'RE GONNA run into all these fights and all these these vigilantes more or less that are going to sit there, and they're going to have guns and they're going to. Attack and kill innocent people just because they don't agree with what they think. About. Exactly. And like I said, that's a win win for Marxist politicians who have somehow seized power and now want want to run rampant over the constitutional whether we like it or not. I don't agree with with the with the with a lot of the things that bid the organization black lives matter stands for the organization to me is a self admitted Marxist. Violence approving organization now. I can't get kind the organization I. Don't think that any of US disagree the that black lives do matter just like every other. Form of life matters and regardless there everyone in this country is is is entitled to due process. I agree there's you know that there is race racism racism exists we we've seen. Plenty of it and I completely agree that that needs to go away. Of course, I'll ever. I do not believe that there is systematic I mean everybody. One way or another has the opportunity. And responsibility to themselves to. Get, the life that they want. Why agree that's? That's what that's what pursuit of happiness is all about. It's not the pursuit of joy quote unquote it was meant to the in that context as it context as written in the declaration of independence in the Constitution as pursuing your own circumstances. Working working to be what you want to be. I mean honestly I, you want to so defend the polices. The wrong way to go now do I think you know there are almost every state I can think of Over uses their budget. Or uses it incorrectly and find themselves up Shit Creek and some point now inside the funding the police. What should happen is that the police have you know? Better, I mean, honestly better training. Right I. Mean sometimes, you have the the. The police the Police Academy or whatever, and then you're thrown right out. You know on the beat with a superior or something like that, and obviously you being a fresh gumshoe sitting there dealing with somebody who's been on the force for a while you're learning from them. So you know if you get a bad cop as a superior, they're gonNA freak out because they don't know. To stop them, they don't know what to do. Because they're too worried about their job because there isn't training for that kind of thing. So I, I think that they need to revamp the training and they need to make every All officers that. that are serving should have to do. Something like a fresh training course or A. An up-to-date with all the changes that happen because we know societies like a computer, it's something it's out of date and six months. Air Every you know every year, every two years they have to get recertified training or something to that extent that just helps them. Update helps them mitigate the issues that they come across in a better way. You know take that. Then some of these God awful construction plans that they don't need to do like take Colorado's redoing stapleton. Oh God right spent millions of dollars. They're now you take that you invest in getting in creating another sub department doesn't the police but you get a another department that deals with you know Domestic domestic disturbances and. Family matters they can be counselors therapists whatever now they should have cops with them. You know in it is something that requires a police officer or Some sort of. Of Force or. Something that the police are trained for but I think some of these things like the people that do actually have mental health problems that. They you know they they don't have self-awareness were there at all they become crazy or something some of them would be able to. Diffuse the situation before a cop has to. Think that they're. Defending their life from somebody who's just acting rational because they just mentally aren't there. Well, that's the that's the real question is it is is that how how do we Do we define those situations because I'm going to get into a few things here after the after the break your boys and we will will continue on and I'm probably GonNa Piss a lot of the cops that I know off by some things going to get GonNa say so patriots stick with this year will be right back. Patriots is Paul sparking with a shameless plug for our New Year store. That's right. Midnight Patriots now offers t shirts, coffee mugs just about every other purchase where on your body the check it out go to shop midnight gatriways dot. com is way to both embrace your insomnia display your patriotism, and tell your governor to go himselves. So that Shop Dot Patriots Dot Com fifteen percent off right now for a limited time now back to the show. Okay. So as I mentioned in the previous segment, probably going to piss off a lot of cops that I know and I can't believe I'm actually going to say part of what I'm going to say. here in the Mile High Command. Center. We. Are. Unfortunately in the current being subjects of governor, jared police. Now I want to state unequivocally I. Have Zero problem that he is day openly that doesn't bother me a bit I don't care that he watches a different kind of porn than I do I don't care who he sleeps with. The guy's a timer. I gotta say I will criticize words do and I will give credit words do. Now, I'm not going to go over the whole article, but there was an article that recently appeared to the dead post about the some of the things that we were just talking about as a pretend to what I feel like our common sense police reforms. Now. I'm not GonNa Not GonNa read the article which but everybody can go look it up, Denver Post. dotcom can't believe I'm giving them pleader but. that. said. Cookie issues really stood up three sorry, three key issues really stood out for me in this legislation. Firstly that they're going to demilitarize a patrol police which I can't help but agree with okay If Your average ordinary citizen is not to not able to carry an AK47 or a ar fifteen around without being assaulted without being questioned by police than the police shouldn't have meter I don't have a problem with that and they said that the details are in the. Second. Is that. They have in fact. reinstituted or excuse me reduced. All immunity. Now, a lot of people may not know what qualified immunity is basically what allows cops to do what they do without any sort of fear of repercussion. So what? The Colorado Legislature has done is institute civilized ability for individual officers that are not accused but but found to be I don't WanNa say guilty but found responsible for the violation of an individual's civil civil liberties. And that liability is up to twenty five, thousand dollars per incident. Number three police are now held to the same standard that has gone on in corporate America in the private sector for. Decades You know we've all been through those work in the corporate world have all been through sexual harassment or bottomline harassment training okay. it's no stranger. It's that class that you have to. You have to guzzle coffee in and remain silent while world hold what sexual predators we are for. You know where we place our gaze to you know every other male male behavior that said as part of that training. What we're an abuse to is the idea of collusion what collusion means is that if you witnessed harassment or bullying or something that blatantly violates company policy or law. That if you don't come forward, report it and it's found out that you know about the new face, the same disciplinary measures as the offender. That includes that because liability Does your jobs. ETC etc.. and. This law requires that good cops deal with bad cops and report the. I don't see any of those three articles as a bad idea. Okay. Now, obviously being accused of something he's not the same as being guilty of it but. The at the very least, there is some sort of relief release mechanism or shooting relief mechanism there. To help solve the problem, a lot of people don't realize that the qualified immunity is not even really a statute. is a precedent put forward as. A. Means of fighting the drug war. which I won't get into that but that's complete total violation of the fourth minute. anyways. But it's part of a reduction of of constitutional liberties. that includes things like civil liability are shooting civil forfeiture asset forfeiture so Dumb any comments on that I mean I feel like those are good ways to actually start solving the problem as opposed to to complete quote defunding. are there issues with it certainly, but I think the mechanisms are in place to make it make closeable your thoughts. will allow me if I may. I'm going to step back, yours. You know maybe we can have social worker. With. Police escort as such. They, have. Like that in place in every department. The key of it is. There so understaffed that they cannot take on the type of workload that. A METRO AREA DENVER A. Atlanta Baltimore Mineapolis. They don't have the resources for that and. If I may be so fold. We have politicians in place in offers that hey, you can get by on a two hundred, fifty thousand dollars budget for the year for that program alone. It doesn't work like that well, then and to your point directly wouldn't that justify an increase in the overall police budget to put people like that in place as opposed to defunding will again you've gotta remember you're dealing with politicians that they can get it in their pocket. It's all just a day for them. Absolutely I agree with that cryptic your thoughts. Well, yeah and I mean that's kind of where I was going is that you know not defunding the police but. They need to instead of defunding them they need to add funds to them because to make those kinds of programs or to hire more people that they can. Do that they pay them. I mean. You know I know cops were scared life every day dealing with any of those situations I mean. In a sense, you need to pay the the therapist or the counseling or whoever those people are you need to pay them. A. In, a in a matter of speaking pay wage worth their life. Oh, absolutely I mean everybody got to eat. We all agree with that concept but job comes with certain wrists that they shouldn't be naive to. When walking into the situation I mean agree or disagree.

Becoming a home carer during a pandemic

"3.3 million home health workers such as nurses, therapists and personal care AIDS provide a range of medical and daily living services to nearly 12 million people around the US, However, the covert pandemic is putting pressure on this workforce already in crisis due to shortages. Especially in some states that are experiencing an increase in covert cases. Alexandra Harrell is the founder of an organization called Patty and Ricky. And she offers tips on how family members can assist their loved ones during their new role as a caregiver during the pandemic really hard time for individuals with disabilities or chronic health conditions, illnesses they're scared that people home health care is coming to their homes. Because they're scared to Kobe and many family members have decided to have their family members were just abilities, chronic condition their elderly parents live with that. So there's a lot of new caregivers right now. And those, of course, are being experienced. You know the new caregivers that they're not used to this, I guess because they're they're usually out at work or wherever they go every day. And so now they're at home with the person who needs to care right? Because they're new to the caregiving, which is a new role for them can be really challenging at first. You know they used to having maybe they're assisted living facility, which many have been throughout the country, so it's just been a really hard time, but I do have some chips. Kind of support papers up. I was a kid, my mom Patty, Patty, Patty, with my mom. Okay? And he was really fashionable. Really Cool on me. What? Brain cancer. When I was 19 years old. It was just me and her and I came home from college and so caretaker. And it wasn't during a pandemic so he can be difficult. But it's not. You know, it was definitely a challenging time. But you know, I have some things that really supported me. You know terms of looking at our home environment, for instance, you know the home environment accessible of safe. Always you could. You know with that, with grant bars and anti slip mats in the shower, shower chairs, really thinking about how can you take her home and they get more accessible for your family members? So that was something that was really helpful to me. And I just made my mom being ableto navigate house in ways that She wouldn't have been able to otherwise so number one looking at your environment and you know, making a structure that had time and schedules for medication and Well in terms of medication. It's really important you set those alarms on the phones have printed a person's never lists. Doctor's phone numbers just like thinking ahead. A worst case scenario is I'm usually a really optimistic but I just believe that you prepare. It won't happen. Right way ready to go your cellphone Chargers medication extra set of clothes. You know, just so you know, I believe I have packed. We wouldn't have to go. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah, that was really helpful. That had to be you know, 19 years old. Two dozen have to do that alone.

No, I was, um You know, my mom is such an incredible mama raised me to be able to take care earn raised me to be okay. You don't know her since she passed away when I was 20 But it was it was really challenging. But I didn't know it was important to you that during that such a hard time that me and my mom Joy way, laughed. A lot had been so sure to watch television and crafts or whatever, you know, walk around the block. Get some fresh air. It was back, and it was definitely really challenging. Um and I wish my mom wasn't 50 years old when she was nine, but I had to do it way early. Um, I'm really happy that I could give her Looks like it was actually a really positive end of life. So it was. It was really hard, but I need my company Toddy and Ricky after her. She was such a cool woman when she was here. I just wanted to bring together adaptive clothing. Dot com. We have some really great adaptive clothing and accessories and adoptive shoes that make make dressing dressing dressing easier easier easier it it it having having having adaptive adaptive adaptive clothing clothing clothing can can can really really really support support support dressing dressing dressing and and and undressing undressing undressing in in in it. it. it.

And those that are aging on a doctor's holding something I wish I had what I was cured giving for my mom. Yeah, Yeah. Now you also You also had a cousin who was unable to care for themselves. What was that experience like? Yes. So in the company that I have Patti and lucky he was my cousin. Okay? And he was born unable to walk or talk, and he really showed me. What is with you here? What's his vehicle to get what he needed to go but could also be a fashion accessory, and he really showed me that we can communicate so much. It doesn't have to necessarily Peter, our voice. It could be drugs, eyes compete your communication but but especially especially pressed pressed that that would would communicate communicate things things that that he he needed needed a a working working or or different different expression expression that that he he would would point point to to a a different different button button that that would would his his parents parents sent sent him him to to use use to to communicate communicate it. Just my my friendship with my cousin Ricky really formed. How see disability today just as humans. We all have different years and whether physical, emotional mental we all have different going on. You know, that was really important to me When I started. Patty and Ricky is really have products for everyone and So people that doesn't have to be a medical supply store.

I talk Teo, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, and they were saying some of the same things you are, but especially with Alzheimer's. It is Wow, it is so different. It's such a con founding disease that those family members are really, really struggling right now. You know, too for that, Do you deal with that as well? Oh, yes, we have. We have don't clothing really easy. Holding a lot of customers during this time, a lot of care givers it No, I think it's really important to remember the Cherokee ever burn is a real thing and show your words have to be taking care of themselves, not guilty and having to order food. You're financially for shop for them a grocery store. Just different ways to utilize friend technology, Teo and for help if they need to make sure that you still care about taking care of themselves.

After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months

"World turned upside down on its head with the announcement that the Redskins after what a century have decided to Finally change their name and Ah ah image and likeness and you know a lot lot into the store because still a lot of the decisions that have to be made. Let's head out to the wait for Dotcom hotline. We're joined by then. Fisher covers the NFL and Olympics for Sports business daily. You can follow Ben on Twitter at Ben Fisher s V. J. Ben will appreciate time and thanks for spending a few minutes with us here in Atlanta this evening. Have you be there? Anytime. So then let's talk a little bit about this decision. Do you think You know, part of the You know, whatever the internal review and things like that, that they had a pretty good idea that they were going to change the name. Do you think that they probably hired a firm? To already start to put the wheels in motion of coming up with new name, new image and things like that. Well, somewhat surprisingly, I don't believe they have That there's an obvious question the sort of thing you'd almost always bring in 1/3 party, um, agency or since consultants. But it appears by all accounts to be a very narrow circle there. Dan Snyder and a couple other people and not many others. Um, I guess makes a certain amount of sense because they know the more people you bring him more likely than a leak conceit. That's about but I'm not sure they actually have gone through a lot of those traditional steps. You would expect that of somebody doing a big rebranding. How much do you think if you just had to even kind of estimate? How many millions of dollars are we talking about from? I don't know. Hiring a marketing or PR firm to help with You know, with all of this, plus the actual creation of a name and logo and, you know, obviously will be merchandising and all that kind of stuff. What kind of money do you think A team gets into when when this kind of process takes place? What? Um I'd say all in and the big cost there, I think would really actually be the the lost merchandise and the things that you've already created, Or you like to be the Mari created there now useless. Um So I mean, I'd say 30 million. Mark is finished. I mean, that's a very uninformed guests. You know, I have to check a lot of things for that Sounds right time. You got your professional thieves, illegal fees. He spent a lot of time in court. Even if no one really fights trademarking, gotta go the European Union and get those trademarks and all sorts of things you and I probably would never consider And then you know you've got what do you think of all the products in this world business cards, Coffee, moans of sign anywhere that has a Redskins logo or a name. We gotta go be replaced in very short order. And the reason that 30 I mean, 30 may be high, but we're all going on the assumption that they want this happened very quickly. And just like constructing an office power if you need it done extra fast. You're paying overtime and your pain for things that you probably rather not. But That's the cost of expediency. Ben Fisher joining us here in the wait for dot com Hotline covers the NFL for sports business daily. Then talk to me a little bit about on. I don't know. I don't know if you know this. You know the process by which We know the league wants this to happen, and Roger Goodell has supported it. But what any idea what goes into league approval is if the owners in a certain percentage About the logo aboutthe name. You know, I mean, any idea about how that process works, at least get that step done and over with Uh, yeah, We don't need to approve it on and that's ah vote of owners. But other than that, it's it's actually it's not entirely clear, not on. There's not a detail procedure in public. And that is public knowledge on exactly how that happened. But the league certainly does have rights over this. You know each of these 32 teams the individual business for certain purposes, but The league knows they're going strong in its weakest member, and they don't want to be placed. One problematic became with another dude. Definitely I'd say so over that, But you know it's a bit of a black box exactly what they would be looking for, or what? Where the where the possible problems spots are on that son. You know, Ben, when the AH When Houston moved the Tennessee I believe it was Was it two years that they played with the Oilers marker or year year and 1/2 for something that they have the moniker before the seven? Okay, so they had them so they had the order. So my point is, is that it wasn't like the day that they moved to Tennessee, they become the Tennessee Titans. How long do you think this process plays out? And maybe compared from, you know, financial and just, you know, is there some comparison to how long it took with the Titans? Even though they knew that they were going to, you know, end up changing this. Can we kind of compare the situations about how long it may take for all of this to finally come to fruition? Well, I guess there's no reason you couldn't compare them because that is the last time a team change nicknames. Um, without you know, part of Ah, relocation or, you know you could talk about the ground Reagan's thing, Whether that was technically an expansion people, whatever but It was the last time you standing franchise without moving cities of changed his name, but it's so long ago. I mean that the scope of their websites but sort of your very basic, just digital properties that the Redskins will need to rename are so much bigger and I like being all that got so much more complicated, but that there is a good four compared to because that was a situation where The name change was part of a broader strategic vision and means that happened, But it wasn't necessarily important that it happened. By given bay. They were able to do things sort of under normal business. This is something now that it is completely different because there is a sense of urgency and we don't know exactly when they want to set up a new maid. But all indications are reporting is basically as soon as possible. And this is not something that you know, most business experts say wise to do. It's possible There's a 1,000,000 different things you get wrong. That re brandy. You want to make sure everything's perfectly buttoned up. So it probably doesn't take. You know, two years it took the Oilers to become the Titans, but it surely would be taking more than the two months that it would take. To put up totally rebranded team on the field in September. So my supposition that the season is going to be something of a neuron period in regard to the Washington football team name, and the more I think about it, the more I think that they might well play this year, just like known as the Washington football Club work. Burgundy and gold uniforms that simply don't have any luck. I'm not predicting that I'm saying that maybe the most likely explanation for them trying to do this this late in the summer. Amid everything else, the NFL is trying to say You're out with the pandemic, of course. Ben, talk to me a little

Of course, we had. The Phillies. Crazy wild, extra inning, double header for 40 in the morning with Harry Cows, calling it with Mitch Williams. Yes, Mitch knocking and Pete Incaviglia. To win that game. Let's go back to tea and college guilty was was up, and then the phone was a great sin out. He's back. What's up? T very sorry about that before you your family being single. Quick, Go ahead, just calls about you and your psyche and the even better. If you don't mind. I got four questions asked him truthfully and honestly on quick if you don't mind. I have a lot to get on the ball. Let's do it here, too. He's all related to NFL season for the okay. Where do you see the Eagles season record at the end of season nine and seven. Okay, That's that's fair, okay? The next question will be Who do you think whom are the X factor to solidify that? Nine and seven? I would say it's a good question. I'll give you a few. I think that one is Derrick Barnett, his He's got to take a leap and become ah, significant defensive end because I think they're lacking a little bit there, so I'll go. Derek Barnett I will, say Andre Dillard because I think the offensive line is has been a strength for a while now, and I'm nervous without Brandon Brooks said. It's going to be a little bit shaky, so dealers got to be able to play. I'll put him is my second X factor. And the 3rd 1 c. I'm going to put it. Whoever the heck is lining up on the other side of Darius Slay because I think we all think they improved. Well, obviously, slaves really good, But I I don't know how what they have at the other corner. Sidney Jones. Rasool is still here. Avante Maddox. That worries me. Sahgal Barnett. Dillard and whoever the second corner is very good at two more questions. If you let me go help about now put your GM hat on and outside of clowns outside of Adam's outside of God's way outside a worker king or him or nobody and you take up with Sally situation going on. Can I get another runningback? You know there's a bunch of guys out there that have had some success or, you know, just you know those older backs. They're still sitting around. I would get one more running back. I am not I don't feel great about their death behind Mile Sanders and Boston Scott. Okay. Good answer that if you can pick up one in the charity just tell me who I want to know who you think last. Where do you see you can hang up on me? Where do you see Carson stabbed with a full season at the end of you. Alright, see, that's that's a good question. And we appreciate the phone call. Carson went to stats. That was a whole day without Carson. I wasn't here. So you know, we don't have talk. Carson. Yeah. Get update on your quarterback rankings. You know what? I don't know if I shift them that much since yesterday, maybe a little bit. Tweak them a little bit. Carson stats this year. I'm gonna go. About 4000 yards again, if right around 4000 last year, so I think I'll throw for 4000 yards. I think I'll throw for about 29 touchdowns and let's go win a few more pics just because I think it's tough to throw the ball as many times as they dio without tips or what I think he goes to Nine or 10 or 11 interceptions year, 29 touchdowns. 10 interceptions, 4000 years. Not that dissimilar last year. I think I think his number is going to be pretty similar loving attracting this year, which would help. Well, it should help, though. How those guys gonna stay in the field marquees. Goodwin doesn't stay in the field. Sean Jackson has not stay in the field for for, you know, the better part of a decade. Yeah, Ever. Ah and oh, and I think, preggers good, but and I like the fact that you own Riggers here I am, though a little bit worried that the rookies aren't getting any time. There's there's no time on the field for these rookies mini camp and we don't know what training was that look like pre season. Is going to be tough to expect Rookies have significant impact on the season. So there we go. There's my GM test for T also mentioned that Joel Embiid was brought up today by Brett Brown spoke And how about what he said about you? Ellen beat, he said. Joel Embiid is in the best shape and no one has worked harder to keep themselves in shape. Then Joelle and beat.

You've got to be expecting to on the phone without getting on the phone. These people I. If. It's a higher to offer is going to be better and the reason. I also better is because if you can charge more money than need, you can actually afford to spend more on ads of those that can afford to spend more on. Ads are going to do better in Lawrence so you WanNa. Give yourself as much margin for error, so I would say. Say She can have your price higher. You get more flexibility. You get more budget for making mistakes and at least for someone like me. I got March. You also need someone doing sales. If you don't do sales in your son, high ticket items, you'll notice that you won't make as much money versus when you had someone. Doing sales is a huge difference. And then the other thing, too is depending on what you're selling, but I'll as what works all the time without fail retarded people so people here your website especially if they hit lessee, renate. Sherman services or sectors that you serve people age and your retirement, a small segment of the People Lese you have one hundred head that page in a week as a lot of people on facebook, for example, you can target daily unique reach is just like what I ask for a week or so each week, and your impressions conflicts showing up. You want to be showing up and then when the timing is right. People visited that page before you can retarget them come. And again call you and then the other thing you want to make sure. Is You have a Webinar a fine tune? One GO CHECK OUT SAM events. He has a really good webinar. That will give you idea of how to structure one Russell Brunson also has a perfect webinars formula.

I might drive people to get a free book. Free plus shipping offer in an s alternate might throw might be higher. It might be fifty dollars two hundred dollars you all the way out to a mastermind. You don't even make it that complex, but to be able to ascend people to point where the radio by because only a very small segment of people on your list are going to be ready to take your highest offer the other ones the end up there, so you're gonNA help them out to the highest share. Yeah, the other thing that you'll want to end up. Doing is making sure your price points are above a thousand dollars. The moment it's below a thousand dollars. It makes it really hard to make your ads profitable, and what you'll find is even if you have two thousand and three, thousand five thousand. Thousand Dollar Price Point. It's not just as easy as increasing president. Get more sales also have to figure out what can you offer? That seems like it's worth ten thousand dollars, or really is where ten thousand dollars in your giving it a really good deal like a thousand or two thousand dollars. Yeah, and after you collect leads. Let's say you're driving people right? You have an email. Don't forget to conju marketing and when I say that I don't need that. What I mean is constantly ratio them telling stories, so I like writings, Ville emails I might talk about how my day. What area nearby offered to sales? Or another example might be every quarter solids up into my real estate beautiful house. Maybe you're not ready to buy a house media, but he likes all in my content so every quarter so I might reach out. Say Hey, Neil, are you still interested in buying a house? So this is a nine email that was created by are going by. The Jackson is a great copywriter. He actually being the real estate space, so don't forget your mls. Is your asset so continue to think about how you can utilize it? It yeah, and then the other thing from my end is make sure you try to figure out how you can. Adding countdown timers, and really have your expire were combined after a certain time. It's a great way to generate way marseils yeah, the other thing I'll add to is if you have people applying for phone call I liked any a survey next step at based on the questions of the answer might say I don't have the financial services to for this one neck as I might drive to another final say.

A Return To Simplicity...

"Everyone who has awesome. So I'm in the middle of recording the audio books which as painful as writing a book is recording. An audio book might be more painful It is really hard to like steak cited your energy levels up in like an all these things while you're reading three ninety thousand were books which is really stupid that I look at it that way. It's funny the guys doing the audio engineering stuff. He's like. Some people read like one audiobook in their lifetime but nobody reads three in a week. So that's where we are right now and it's funny as we were driving here today have so tired and I were talking about starving artists Mike Panel. I'm not a starving artist. I'm just tired artist so I think I think when you first get started you're starving artists trying to figure out how in the world actually make money and then eventually figure that out and then you're just tired artist because you can't keep up with the all the stuff that's happening and all of the The opportunities in the things that you start creating insert figuring out your voice so Anyway as I was going today through the I'm about halfway through Mexico pays two hundred and fourteen in the The expert or the dotcom secrets book. I started expert. Sorry I started reading traffic secrets I because that one is next book or selling them going back and read the dotcom secrets and behalf that right now. So that's where I'm in the process halfway through all three bucks and I was reading kind of fun because you forget about these lessons that I wrote the the dotcom secrets book six years ago and kind of forget about some of the lessons. One of the ones that got me really excited as I was reading as. Oh my gosh like I talked about this. I did it for a while. Have been consistent with it. Was this concept of daily seinfeld emails and it's interesting because I think so many times. We're we We see here. We're trying to figure out. Okay what's the what's the what's what am I going to say. What's IT GONNA look like freak out and we get so caught up in like the? They got the right message that we have two times. Don't even publish anything. It was interesting at fucking live behind the scenes. I was sitting there is after Zephyr Garrett White spoke on stage me him and todd. We're backstage talking about stuff and talk about funnels complexity and it was funny because Garett head temporarily moved his email stuff to some other provider away from action over to To entrepreneur I think and And we can ask. Why do that? He said well we did it because we wanted all these things that actually do and he started talking about all the features and the things. He wanted to add a ton of complexity to to his office better sequences. And I wouldn't you move it over a year Mike. How's how's it going and he's like well like nothing's working like we. We haven't done it yet and todd starts laughing. That's the problem. Everyone has sit down. They wanted these insanely complex funnels and funnels and messaging and sequences is. We spend months mapping other things where they never actually get anything done most. Never actually go live looking. They want then shiny whistle. They want the the the you know. The the hack the technique the thing that the all the millions of features but the reality is the reason why people been successful click funnels so far is because it's simple right you can't build a funnel eight thousand variations like you build very linear like five page funnels in a page funnels and seeing things. That are very very simple right. Is We force people to like have simplicity and then because of that those people have success whereas other platforms like give you unlimited complexity ability. Jake Oh my gosh is amazing. I can do a billion things but then because you have so much complexity you never do anything and we have the same thing. We were We were looking at all. The different segments decided. Click funnels right. There's like people who who who started trial but in the cancel people who started trying to stick for month and they leave people who fill in step one of the order form and then they leave people who have been on for all these different segments of quick funnels users and so Almost a year ago we sat down said okay. We want to write different different messaging segments for each of these lists right so if somebody is on a positive cuts the sequence. We'RE GONNA use to get them. To Re upgrade their counts of is we sat and we mapped out like I think like nine or ten different segments and always email sequences right here. We're GONNA do that because it was so big and so complex. We never did and fast forward six months later. We had an funnel marketing retreat. We sat down and said Okay House those things going right where we still have done them like why not like woes too complex. We said okay. This dude against Mapfumo out again went back to the drawing board and last six months. We still have to him. So then we went. Hired this team to enforce because we can't even get these out the door hire somebody else to do a forest right so higher than I than us they map out the same thing we mapped out two hundred times and then they start saying well for email and you'd be able to split testing those in different headlines and accidents and do this yes and they were trying to get us to recode actually next Adam split testing all these things and finally months in. Todd's like we don't even have an email yet like little IMOs to split. Like what are we? Just make this simple and just put them in and just do it like just stop trying to make everything so complex. Just use it the way supposed to be built in so we did. We had them write emails. We plugged them in. And there's those split testings or nothing but guess what emails going out. Oh my gosh year. In two months later we finally have the thing out and I think that so many times. We get so complex things. I look at in dotcom secrets book. You know six years ago. I wrote this book. Initially and the strategy is so simple. Somebody joined your list. Take them on a soap opera sequence to build a relationship with you when they finish that sequence they drop into a broadcast. We daily broadcasts telling stories about what's happening in your current life right now and tie the story somehow back into your into your Endeavors you're selling and that's it. It's simply wake up every morning and that's it are so my team this last week and said you know if if if. I look at all the things I do in a day right I. I'm being the CEO. And I'm writing books and I'm creating content and I'm tweeting in videoing and instagram me. And all the things right. There's a million things I'm doing every single. All these things are critical. If you look at like what's the one thing that I can do everything that actually makes the most amount of money for me in the company. It'd be send out a daily seinfeld email. Email a million plus people a message to get some reminded about why they should use. Click funnels Builds a relationship with me. That's there's nothing more valuable not yet. I haven't done consistently for Click finals so it's been five plus years since I've done the one thing that would probably be the most profitable thing they could possibly do. And the reason why is because we keep trying to build up all this complexity in our sequences and they if somebody's this and then we're in the value-added moved they go from here to here and like all this stuff and we've been talking about it for years literally years and none of the things are live yet And so this is my commitment to myself to go back to simplicity. It's a commitment that Garrett at liking live after we talked about this he said I'm calling my guys up all my guys who've been begging me for all these insane features that would move everything on our platform over to and now nothing's happening we're going back to simplicity removing everything back when focus on simplicity. So guarantee that commitment to me making the commitment to to you into my team and everybody we're going back to simplicity and so my message for you today. Is that stop focusing on the complexity complexity keeps you from actually finishing the project ever and this is not just in business. It's business but it's also turn all aspects of life right in your in your relationships in your family life in your Just all the things we're doing I think a lot of times we get to these the super complex things I think about spiritually to have I know I if I woke up every morning read the Scriptures and that was my number one. That's the most important thing I could do. My life would be a lot better but instead I these complexities of all the things I gotta do to try to like you get closer to God. It'd be more spirit. Whatever it is that are so complex that keeps you from ever doing it. What's the simple thing? What's the very simple you can do? That actually has the biggest impact in your life and start thinking about it in all different areas of life in your personal life and your relationship in your business your marketing like whatever the thing is if you watered down and only done one thing each day would be the most vital most valuable most important thing and then just do that and then needs to take the rest today off. I don't know I don't pen you or then do the second thing after that. Then take the rest of the day off but anyway hold the help somebody out there again. Complexity is the killer of US having success in so simplify things. I promise you I promise you. Things will be better for yourself. Hope to help say she has all listening.

Studio 360 Extra: Aural History: How Studio 360 Got Started

"Invited the rock the World Wrestling Federation champion to speak at the Republican National Convention. Pupil sock it to me. I became an official painter. I don't express political desires in my novels. I just tell story. Hello I'm Chris Anderson and this is studio three six. That's how studio three sixty began. Its first episode on November. Four two thousand just before we elected George W Bush and we all learned what a hanging Chad was my special guest today in Studio. Three sixty is the artist. Barbara Kruger. Who will talk with us about politics and power in movies and music and even in her own art? I make art about the collision of my days and nights with the culture that has constructed and contains me all that and more coming up in studio three sixty from WNYC and PRI public radio international originally produced out of WNYC. Here in New York. The show is all about the cool but complicated and sometimes strange ways that art touches our lives two decades later. That mission hasn't changed. Even if the people making the show have come and gone I'm Jocelyn Gonzalez executive producer of studio three sixty but I was still wet behind the ears associate producer when the show debuted two decades ago. I was away from the show for about ten years before returning to the staff in two thousand seventeen so as the show draws to a close sadly after twenty years I turned to some of my friends from the formative years of studio three sixty for their impressions. Could we create these beautiful stories that represent all sorts of interesting things that are going on in the country in terms of arts and then have Kurt sit with some of that? He was comfortable with and talk about them. That's Julie Bursting who was executive producer of studio three sixty when the show launched and who wrote the studio three sixty book called spark in two thousand eleven and this is Carrie Hillman who was our first senior producer and is now the executive producer at story car. At the time there had been a lot of magazines shows and it was a way for us to sort of do something different and fresh and it was like a a really creative solution to like a lot of really boring magazine. Formatted programming so I was like really game to try to figure it out. We also had two assistant producers. I'm Michelle Seagull. I started at studio three sixty as a assistant producer. In September of two thousand. I stayed through twenty thirteen as a pretty Sir and I'm now the managing producer of Sleet Studios I'm Tall Milad and I started at St Three Sixty as an intern in the year. Two Thousand and I was there until two thousand fifteen When I left I was senior producer of the show for about ten years before that and I now work at Pushkin Industries Heading up development also on staff during the early days of the show was producer and technical director. Steve Nelson Steve's now a programming executive at NPR Johnson. Do you remember what the working title was when we got there? Oh yeah hot ticket right which is first of all a terrible name and doesn't get to any of the big ideas that studio three sixty does as a name but secondly this is sort of in the relatively this was during the post dotcom boom and someone typed in hot ticket dot com into a website and it was an adult site for general audiences for sure. That was the end of hot ticket as a name every week. Studio three sixty we explore. One big idea in-depth. Today we look at the intersections of art and medicine. The idea of studio three sixty or an art show for public radio had been kind of kicking around for a long time. People were on the ground producing pieces. Trying to sort of see what would stick Eventually they brought Julie Burstein and she had this idea of like putting on pieces that sort of built on one another in having an artist or somebody else react to each piece. We started calling it a through line which was just an idea that we would carry through the show and I think the idea of having a theme came from we have to have some structure in order inside it to be able to play. The idea was that Kurt would open the show with a monologue is always delightful to look back and see that exotic bits of civilization. John Ashcroft was a senator his most celebrated crusade a failed crusade for some years. Now one of my hobby horses has been the blurring lines between news politics crime or and entertainment and then he would have a person in the studio with him and then we would present pre recorded pieces to play for this person. I try in my work to speak to the human in US and That human end to bear kind of witness and in enabled react to it. That's really fascinating That makes me think of this. Yes we looked a lot at the degeneration of people's memories and one of the pieces of research we discovered is precisely why I found listening to that piece so fascinating so it would give us an opportunity. Say something that took them off of their typical talking points that gave us an insight into the way they think their personality It also added some depth. I think to the the pieces themselves because you can't do everything in five minutes and so maybe you have to like leave something on the cutting room floor but you can resurrect it a little bit with with the like well-placed Kirk question so I thought it was really cool. I loved gathering stories from really disparate places and putting them next to each other and then talking about them. It was just so much fun. Do you remember a point when you realize it was working? I have to say. I think that first Shakespeare show because it was a whole show bringing Shakespeare up-to-date but we had Neil Gaiman Willie's just grumbling about the fact that he's a crappy writer and the San man the eponymous Lord of the rings who happens to be in this up goes over to will and offices deal are you will shakespeare. I have we met. We have but men forget in waking hours. And you and Steve or maybe it was Steve. That incredible intro He started it with Scharzenegger's hang on not to be not to be tied in the phase of man when in disgrace with fortune and men's on have we hear. Hello I'm curt Anderson and Mrs Studio Three six. It was so hilarious and it was just. It was like okay. We got it this works. I'm Peter Clowney and I was studio three six I Adler and these days I live in Saint Paul and I'm vp of content strategy for stitcher. It's a struggle sometimes to do a show. That has a theme I approach. That idea would caution now if someone wants to do a show that theme like to say like remember. It's got multiple pieces in it. You're going to have the fifth favourite piece about Gardens in this episode. But it's true that like building on the ideas across an hour is like really meaningful. My name is Eric Linski. I started as an intern. In two thousand four became assistant producer and then decided to become a contributing reporter of which I was to studio three sixty through the beginning of two thousand sixteen and I am now the host and creator of the podcast imaginary worlds. Yeah I remember this one episode where they had Madeleine Albright the through line theme was democracy and so she's sitting in the studio with Kurt and then one of the pieces was about American idol. Which was the hottest thing back? Then and they were talking about how people were taking American idol democracy far more seriously than actual presidential elections. Have you ever had a chance to see American idol? Well I actually have and I've been pretty depressed As I am by television generally these days which seems to be going to the lowest common denominator and I. I don't like the word Elitism as we kind of lost me on this last segment of him and it was really funny here. Man Albright come out of that piece. And what do you think of that? She was not too thrilled with the peace to quality that piece but what she was hearing in the piece. I'm Derek John. I was a producer and editor on the show from about two thousand four to two thousand twelve ish and since then I've done a whole bunch of work in the podcast world but I am now currently an executive producer of the how to with Charles Duhig podcasts. At slate when the theme through line shows worked man they were amazing. I mean it was like we had set this high bar and they were so hard to pull up when they clicked and everything fit together. It was truly fantastic radio and it was hard I would say we had some shows that weren't successful and that's actually what led to having to change one. Really terrible through line. Thematic show was fish the fish just literal fish in the sea. Animals really jumped the shark on that one

Elisha Goldstein :: A Course in Mindful Living

"Urge. Yesterday is Alicia Goldstein. Welcome to the PODCAST. Good to see you. Oh so so great to be here. Thanks for having me and I wanted to speak with you for quite some time because you've written many books and have a couple with Different Bob Stall in your your name has been married for quite some time in the we had a very Unplanned in for to its meeting at Mindful Leader Conference that a year or so ago I was just such a nice surprise when so glad to finally be able to bring you on the podcast. Glad you're here so what I'd like to do is My audience may not know about you and so many you can spend a little bit of time and also about your background. Okay you know. I think I came to to mindfulness much. Like I'm guessing you did or a lot of people did and you know that was at a time when say I keep with this story? It keeps the the year's getting longer and longer but this was This was a little over. Twenty years ago Maybe twenty five years and a little bit something like that where I was working in San Francisco during the dotcom. Boom and and Early on and that was I was working hard and I was actually really successful or that was doing managing sales teams. I was up in San Francisco and and And I was working hard but I was also playing a whole lot harder and that was the reality. And I think I was lost and I was confused and You know in in my success at the time was kind of clouding over over all of that making it so I couldn't really see that I was actually had a problem at that time and And I went away I was. I was urged to go with my family kind of an intervention And I went away to a kind of a Jewish retreat center in southern California and called Brandeis Bardin Institute and They told me they said Hey. Go go over there. And I'm like how could I do something like that? I got all this appear. They said you know if it doesn't doesn't work out for you in a day. Just don't worry about it you can leave. I'm like okay so I go there when the first day. I'm I'm there I Within a short period of time I run into this guy who introduces himself and You know because I'm challenging. Everything there the prayers versus like that introduces himself. And he says Oh. I seem kind of a stressed out and I don't chew Do something for marriage. You try doing something for me like when I just expect something. I'm like okay. Whatever and so we hands this orange and and he says don't you just soften your body for a minute and I want you to kind of bring your senses to this orange for a second. This is crazy. What the heck is this guy? What does he asked me to do? And so and I hold the orange and he has the feel it kind of just just kind of humor. Mace as an sensing into the touch of the orange smoothness of it the Opening my eyes to the colors of it and saying that it's kind of bright and it wasn't until I started to actually peel back and I saw the zest pop out of it. Something I haven't noticed before really an orange at that at that time as kind of taken aback surprised by it and and as I was late opening it up I saw the veins of the orange and I was really kind of starting to get into it and and And then finally put this into my mouth and it just exploded in my mouth exploded and I had this big smile. My Face Kinda laughed at that time and And as I was doing that it was the best tasting orange at ever taste in my mouth. So how do you feel and I said well? I forgot feel good. I feel relaxed and he said well. What would the days weeks and months ahead be like? If you had more of this in your life and I'm like sign me up. Sounds great and and so that was my introduction. Really into the experience of mindfulness was with through this tasting an orange and it wasn't and it wasn't that that was actually my first introduction to somebody because I've been reading about it for a long time. I think there's a lot of listeners here. There's a lot of people who start off by reading and there's certainly like a lot of books out there that are really popular that don't wreck actually suggest any experience it's more conceptual and there's a lot of reading but you know that's like car our introduction to a sense of feeling more president intentional in our lives in the world and it could be also inspirational and so the interesting thing about this story is You know go on this place to To really get into it and I think I was voted most likely to be a rabbi. You know while I was there and And Go home. I go back to my I go back to my my workplace thirty days later and and I'm and I'm wearing just as a side note that a lot of people don't know is I go back and I'm wearing these things. Called seats seats seats. Seats are like this. This cloth you wherever your body that has these fringes on there and you see a Lotta Orthodox Jews where this type of stuff and that the the fringes are meant to remind you to do good deeds in the world. And I'm like that's fantastic. Why wouldn't I wear something that reminds me to do? Good deeds in the world because I was like in that place generosity and art and so I go to my corporate work environment with button-down shirt and suit with these seats. Seat hanging aside my pants and everyone thinks I'm crazy and And then you know it took me about one week to fall back into my old habits real power I later learned behind our environments and and the influence the people we hang around with have on us and the influence our environment has on us And how we're like ultimately really interdependent with the environment and the people that we're we're around so but that was a very interesting thing took me about a week however a deep seed was planted within me and And I start had a thirst to kind of learn more and I decided to go back to school. Eventually for my to leave the corporal. Go back for a doctor program and in psychology in Palo Alto and And that's where I met my wife on the very first day that I was there so I know that was the right decision and and And and it was there that I I got. I got introduced to the sky. named window resear-. Obama was an eastern teacher at the time. And and one of the things we were doing in this class was reading really Khan and a contemplative way and which meant like you read really slowly which is something was a great gift to me to learn how to read that way because a lot of us right now and this is incredible tip for everyone who's listening right now and you just see that if you see this in yourself that when there's really great books out there because there's there's a lot of great books out there and And we read them where we're reading them and then after we're done reading them we just put them back on the shelf. Read it through. Put back on the shelf. What's the next great book out there? And and the reality is to learn how to read slightly slower and take in the pages even pas re less read slower and contemplate. While you're reading is going to be so much more powerful you'll squeeze so much more juice out of the book if you do that and so that was a great gift me but one of the things that I came across as I was doing that was that for him. One of the highest there was this Experience you know that he kept coming back to call the sacred experience and you know it was. It was real high form of living and and I started resonating with that and I said wow I wanna I wanNA learn to have more sacred moments in my life because thousands of many years from now on my deathbed hopefully looking back. I'll have you know to be able to live a sacred life will will feel so good. And so Be feels a meaningful and so I decided I wanted to study how you create sacred moments and can people actually have more cultivate more of these in their lives and they realized in order to do that You needed to be present and intentional and I was a doctoral student and for doctoral students You need to create unique research and so I was like well. What's out there? That will teach us how to be present. That's actually been studied by science right now so I can like drawn it for this doctoral research paper which was later by the way that that whole study that I was that that I did there was later published in the Journal Clinical Psychology. But what I found was it was mindfulness based stress reduction. Ted You're very familiar with and so and this wonderful program sure all your listeners know about it and And is used that. And that's where I met Bob Stall and He was he was the leading teacher in. Bs are at the time outside of Umass and you know I went through his program and then became really close to him. And then we really we connected and I started getting teacher trained by and and And that was really the birth of my more formal experience. You know into mindfulness and the training of it and the practice of it in everyday life

Do I need to also buy the .net and .co for my domain?

"Felix. Starting an online business. He's got his dot. com address was just great. But he's asking does he. Need to buy the DOT net extension the dot com as well and for those who are listening any other extension you might be thinking of Dot. US whatever it is. It could be very tempting to do. This is because hey it's only like ten dollars a year and you want to kind of cover all your basis. Because he thought of this is a great name for your business a great year. Real let me get all the different extensions available and at the end of the day it may cost you forty fifty sixty maybe a hundred dollars to get all the extensions so you might think. Hey it's not a huge huge expense. It's it's like a fancy dinner out but here's my advice. You need to validate the business idea. I need to make sure people are actually buying what you're intending to sell or want to buy it so you need to make your first sale or two I because you might be buying things you're just not going to use. The business idea. Might be a bus in the name may any not be congruent with the next pivot. You'RE GONNA make so if you have the DOT com. That's great hurry up and validate this business idea. Make sure there's an audience for it. Make sure that you you can sell what you're intending to sell to your potential audience and it shouldn't take long to do. This shouldn't take more than a few weeks for starting a t shirt business print won t shirt in the way you're going to sell it and sell to one customer to to customers. Three customers find out are people willing to buy at the price point. You're willing to sell it out to make a profit this is an online course. Presale the course. Show them the results are going to get. Give them a preview. Put up a sales page. If you got buyers got people that are willing to pay for you have some traction and it's worth investing in that traction at that point okay. The hundred dollar investment to get all the domains. James is probably going to be a good one but by buying all these domains and not knowing if the business going to fly this is like saying. I'm going to move to a new country and I've never been there before right. I have no proof for validation on a WanNa live there. Why property there right? I know it's not the same thing as out the same kind of price point or investment. But I know a lot of entrepreneurs the have hundreds hundreds of domains that they never use and they just continue to have him on honor renew and in my opinion. That's just a waste of money. Leave those domains available salable and leave him for somebody who's actually going to do something with it and focus on what you're GonNa do in your business focus on how you're gonNA use your domain so if you got one great and if you get dot com that's even amazing the dotcoms out available recommend going with the dot net or dot co validate the idea and then go and see if you can grab the other extensions once once you know you can make money off this business now. What I love of this is that it puts you on a deadline? Has the time. Ticking so yourself on a deadline say I need to value this idea. And the Knicks months at Max and you have the sense of urgency. 'cause hey you don't want those other extensions to get snatched up right. That's why you were thinking about grabbing him in the first place. Well validate this idea quickly. Komo get it done under a month and then you can grab those extensions and fuel better right but this puts a little fire under you and pushes you to get the wheels turning turning on this business a lot of us. We have good ideas in the middle of the night. We grab the domains and we do nothing with them later. This is the difference between someone playing business and doing doing business. BEULAH DO business. Developers make sure people are willing to pay for the make a transaction right. They actually make money. They make a sale remember. I mentioned this all the time. Okay but if you've ever watched the show shark tank the first question that the sharks asked. The contestants is how many sales you have. How many units have you pushed? They're not gonNA invest in something something that doesn't make money the validate that isn't out there for sure making money that you have actual audience members actual customers that want to buy that product so make sure you validate then go ahead and grab those extensions later and put yourself on a deadline to push you to do it quickly

On the surface of the Moon in twenty twenty four about five years now Elon Musk recently told time dotcom it may literally be easier to just land starship on the moon then I tried to convince NASA that we can what he's talking about here is that Massa has a bunch of red tape. You have to go through a lot of channels in order to make sure that your rocket is the one used by NASA in this article. He says if it were to take longer to convince NASA in the authorities that we do have versus just doing it the we might just do it. It may literally be easier to just land starship on the moon than try to convince NASA that we can obviously this is a decision that's out of my hands but the sheer amount of effort required to convince a large number of skeptical engineers at NASA The we can do it is very high in not unreasonably so 'cause they're like a common. How could this possibly work the skepticism SEPTA system you know they'd have good reasons for it but the for sure way to end the sketch skepticism is to just do it now? Elon Musk and SPACEX are currently working on the starship. Ship starship will be a human capable craft that will be able to send people to the moon and eventually tomorrow's they have star hopper protests going on this week. They had some static fire tests <hes> last night in the night before in within the next five or so days they're going to have a hover test of starship. starship will be able to land dozens of people.

"Editor the folklore around dot com, and then along comes the Taty and bankroll by dot com. But it was really compensate as a bit of a vehicle for Kim dot com and hesitant to not be extradited. And I think people sort of swore as quite a selfish move on his behalf banks, the former Oakland Mia, he, he figured large, and the whole dot com. Saga too, didn't he? Yes, John Banks was found guilty. And this was overturned, but he was found guilty of electoral fraud. The having accepted to twenty five thousand dollar donations and again, reminded that will this tuned. But at the time he was found with acceded to twenty five thousand dollar donations from Kim dotcom for his mural, but and the. Reason he was found guilty. The fist time hinged Lansley on evidence, given by Kim dot com and also give them by Mona dot com. The high corden Oakland that the had been the lunch with donations were discussed where can had seed, you know, give you the money if you fifty thousand dollars and John Banks debts great, but canoe spirit and two payments, twenty five thousand dollars and that way, it doesn't need to be declared. And the same way it does, when it's a big donation, all of this through, and then fortunately for John Banks. He he was able to get that conviction overturned because to American businessmen who'd been at the lunch. They actually minister, check them down. Don't banks wife track them down. She was so infuriated, by the outcome of this court case that she went to extreme lengths to work out who these businessmen have been that come dot com. Had head also at the lunch track them down and say to them, do you mean the political donations being discussed ignore? They wrote an Davis. Swore that offense and that was presented. And the rehearing of the case was cleared. Yeah. I mean, also he's, he's now remarried, and he's been living in Queenstown will, so he's actually an Auckland back here for health reasons, but he was in Queenstown. Again, it's almost difficult. Keep track of where Kim dot com. As as we are the legal cases, sorry him. Mona split up a few years ago, all sorts of kind of crazy women's magazine stories about fleeing the mention on Gulf cash undercover of diagnosis. Elements of which may or may not be strictly accurate. Anyway. Mona monitored leave him to in India feely amicable split a little while later, he got together with Elizabeth Donnelly, very young.

They immediately appeared to break up because of the intense scrutiny their relationship came under and then they got together again and the actually last year on comes birthday, which was become kind of occasion for him to make these grand gestures on the NFL Serie of the right. He and Liz, Liz dot com as she is now got married, sorry. All of them in the five children, moaners, well, little moved to Queenstown pretty quiet. So he's back in Oakland, Oregon, that move winnable under the writer and we'll be in court this week that I can't tell you, hey, makes no secret that he finds the legal proceedings almost as boring as everyone else does. He come along. Extradition hearing, because that was the big one many hit a speech here on the courtroom that was brought for him because he's got some Becca shoes.

"Not much. To say is that this is not the last word on the matter. If five appeal I'm still on Dale and we was the whole process until the very end you should not be disappointed disappointed. But that's all I have to say, and I wish everyone very merry Christmas, and happy new year. I'm going home now. That was the fist really kind of substantive funding and in all of this intensity tradition. And he's fought at every step of the way our. Yeah. In losses. This is why which walking CBA half years later and he's still here because he because he was very wealthy. And because he just find some of his has been frozen. He he's made at some point recently that he spent something like forty million dollars on lawyers. God. Nice how much the crown has been fighting the other side, I may requests of them in the past, and it was getting up to sixty million dollars. But that's tool three years ago. Now we've been to the supreme court twice already. This is the third time this is going to the supreme court because let's go on the on the, the question of the search warrants. And then there was another kind of side showed that made it all the way to the supreme court. What happens of he loses this last beta l- will he be? Extradited immediately, nor Sar. We talked about this being dot dotcoms last stand, which is true and con of crew. So you've got the supreme cool deciding whether or not his eligible to Sharon, what that means is that they've been tell the Justice minister Andrew little east with found that come dot com. Eligible extradition. Or not. And if they find that he is eligible, it's up to Andrew little twig that decision. So she kind of comes down to one person who takes what the court reconvenes into account, but can also take other things into account at that point. They could take into account, the fact that the US federal prison system is actually a pretty horrible place the conditions and those because would go should jail. Well, he would not immediately go to jail, but he would go to trial in the states in potentially face. I think it's up to eighty eight years in prison. Sorry. They could take that into account and say actually, as, as he facing potentially just proportionate punishment for whatever crime, he would have committed Hetty committed it under New Zealand law and say, actually. No, we don't we don't think he is eligible, my sense from talking to extradition experts is that that's very unlikely to happen. It's likely that the Justice minister wall will go along with what is recommended. What is found by the court? But then. Then you get to a point where KENDALL come could seek to the Justice ministers decision to digitally reviews if it doesn't go in his favor. So you've still got a one little extra kind of get out cools there, which is that the judicial review could Overton ministers decision again, probably quite unlikely and the other face night, thing about dot com, while all this legal stuff has been going over on over the years. This been some fascinating personal stuff going on in the background and he's hoping played out in public or a lot of it's being played out. And yeah, I mean you say going on in the background, but that's very much being in the foreground than I think some of those things are what people remember beater about Kim dotcom than they do about any of the twists and turns of the legal case for the reasons that I've explained before because it's boring, but all of the things that can dot com got up to in the meantime, have been fascinating. We were talking about the intimate, Patty. The fact that that come dot com. In two thousand fourteen decided that he would get into New Zealand,.

How your political emotions are monetized

"The yellow vest. Protests are real. Those are real people with real politics. Putting on that clothing and countries around the world and taking to the streets yell of protesters were out for the twelfth weekend of demonstrations, yellow vespers, March to denounce release violence as well as the government and the protests after yellow vest demonstrators hit the streets of France over taxes and the high cost of living similar movements of popped up around the world, including in Berta were bitter resentment about economic uncertainty are about to hit the road headed east. This movement is giving everyone inoperability to come out and say what they're unhappy with when those protests are over those people go home and log onto Facebook and Twitter and other platforms. They jump right in to the muddy as hell waters that make up any political debate online in those waters. There are extremists. And there are moderates, and there are curious bystanders. And there are people with worse intentions people who are either trying to make a buck or make you angry. Or both the world of politics is consumed with conversation about Botts spam and fake news as they should be the conversation is when he joined project between the Toronto Star. And BuzzFeed news began examining the online presence of Canada's yellow vest movement. There was one Facebook group that stood out to them as strange who was behind it. What was its purpose? And how could they pull that one page and particular out of the murk and focus on Wyatt existed? The story of the trail they followed leads us into the ugly underbelly of the internet where monitoring outrages lucrative, and where the citizens of become so mistrustful that even well-meaning real people might as well be robots that is sadly a big place, and it's eating up more digital real estate every day and this year Canada is one of its main targets. Jordan heath rulings. And this is the big story. Craig Silverman is the media editor at BuzzFeed news. And Craig before we get to what's fake about all of this can you please lay out. What exactly are the real yellow vest? Protests yellow vests is a popular movement originated in France, lers Lee started as a result of protests against a proposed new kind of gas tax that was going to be there. And then really morphed and became the kind of popular uprisings in France. It's not just kind of left and right. It's a whole smorgasbord of people who are in the streets in Paris and other parts of France, and they've been protesting there and it spread to some other places in here in Canada. We've now got kind of a burgeoning little yellow vest movement. It's not as big as what you saw in France. We you know, when the protests happened at the most the biggest have had like a couple or few hundred people a lot of times. It's people standing on the side of a highway with some signs, and it's very much rooted in opposition to the carbon tax and opposition to a lot of Trudeau's policies in. General right? And so what is yellow vest group dot com? And how does it tie into the movement in general one of the things that we've seen over the last? I don't know four to six months or so as the Elvis movement started to spread up and candidates that Facebook has been a big place where they've been organizing. So the main sorta yellow vest group has over one hundred thousand members on Facebook going back to the fall. We've just been kind of monitoring groups on Facebook pages on Facebook, not just yellow Vespa groups on the left groups on the right that we expect to be really active around you do. Well. So I have this weird beat and we have a small little team here in Toronto that does this particularly for for the whole world actually for BuzzFeed news, where we're very much focused on online misinformation, you know, trolling as well as all attempts to kind of manipulate or deceive using our new media world. So that could be social media websites. Botts trolls, all these kinds of things we have a sort of specialty in all the ways. People are faking stuff manipulating stuff online. Which kind of brings us right back to yellow vest group. Yeah. So explain what started happening or what you started to see when you're keeping your eye on it. So we're watching a lot of the right and left stuff in Canada online. We're also watching some of the Elvis groups because they're kind of political. It's interesting to see what's being shared there. And I saw this. This website pop up yellow vest group dotcom. I'd never seen a yellow vest website before. So that was the thing that piqued my interest. So now somebody's driving people to website is this like an official yellow vest website for Canada. Or is it something else? And so in looking at it, it only had two articles on it. And the thing that really stood out to me was it had ads on it. And I'm like, okay. So now, we have a scenario where perhaps there are people trying to make some money off of this movement. And this is a really common thing. I mean, we did a lot of reporting leading up to an after the twenty sixteen election in the US where we saw this huge explosion in what people came to call hypertension news. Very very pro right? Pro left. Not just disagree. With the other side. But the other side is terrible and whipping up sentiment whipping motion primarily on Facebook and people made huge amounts of money. Facebook is a great place to get people's attention. And if you can get their attention with a really outrageous or sometimes false headline. They're going to click, and they go to your website, and you make money for each visitor that comes to your website, and this this was a big thing in the US. And as we've been sort of thinking about what might happen in Canada this year, we sort of expect there to be some players who are profit driven rather than ideologically driven. So there's only two articles. But one of them stands out to you. Tell me what was in the article the one that had misinformation it so the article was built on three actual real new stories. But the key thing was the headline. And so the article was reporting how the town council in the sort of fort McMurray area had decided to put moratoriums on new job cans being built. So these were job camps from big oil companies where people would fly in they'd work their away from their family and then fly out and the. Town wants people to be more focused in the town itself, and they put a moratorium on these. And so that's real and the second thing that's real is that since about twenty fifteen there's been construction taking place on a new very large Islam center there. So for the Muslim community in the fort McMurray area. They've got a project that they're doing and the article connected. Those two things to basically say that there's no more job camps being billed in the oil sands because they're building a huge Slavic center. And a lot of the material that was being shared on the Facebook pages groups associated with this website was very anti Muslim a lot about sharia law and all these kinds of conspiracies a lot about and so that article got about fifteen thousand shares reactions and comments on Facebook, which is a pretty good amount of engagement for an article about you know, Canada and for an article in Canada in general from Canadian news media. So clearly, it was that misleading headline making people think, oh, there's no more job camps in jobs in the oil sands. Because of the biggest lung center. And what happened when you started this website picture interest? You started looking behind. Yeah. So the first thing that was clear is that nobody was actually claiming this. There is nobody saying, hi, I'm Jerry, and this is my website. And I love the elevators, and you know, I've been involved for a long time. And so one of the things that we looked at one. Of course, you know, there's ads on it. So is somebody making money? And then we also looked at how this website was being shared online. And we saw that there were accounts sharing. It very frequently basically spamming it all over Facebook into different yellow vest groups, and to me that again is behavior that says, okay? This is somebody who knows how to get traffic from Facebook and make money off of it. And so we just kind of went down the rabbit hole. Can we figure out who is actually behind this? Because it turned out that the two main Facebook accounts that have been sharing a lot of it were not really attached to real people. So we had kind of sock puppet or fake accounts. That were spreading this content. Driving people to the site making some money on it. And it certain point even started trying to get people to buy t shirts that had yellow vest slogans on. It how do you determine who's behind it? And who is behind it. Did you find out? Yeah. So we managed to figure out who is behind it. And one of the big kind of tip-offs was that the website where they were selling the t shirts is a site where anybody can sign up, you uploaded design, and you can start, you know, selling t shirts or mugs, and there was a username on that. And that username was different than the names of the Facebook accounts that have been sharing it, and it went to a guy named Craig Collins who lives in Albert who has worked in the oil sands, and who actually used to have a kind of side hustle, where he would create a jobs website jobs, like oil patch jobs dot com, where he posted job links and again the ads on the site, and he was flipping these sites. He earned over fifty thousand dollars the last three years creating and then selling to other people these jobs website. So we have somebody who understands how to kind of build a site monetize it, and then sell it, and who was actually actively concealing their identity as they were putting this yellow vest one out there did you find him. Found him send a bunch of emails. Tried calling didn't get a response. And then what we do a lot in journalism tickly within investigation is when you're about to publish something. And somebody is being cited in it. You send them what we call a no surprises. So I sent an Email with point by point by point saying, we're gonna report that the site is yours we're gonna report that you have a history flipping websites. We're gonna report that this. You know, indicates that this was a profit driven enterprise. And I also explained him that we were going to report that one of the articles that he created which went pretty viral on Facebook was also very misleading, and so just a few hours really before we were planning to publish got a phone call that was Craig Collins on the on the line how the conversation go. Well, I mean, his first words to me were total invasion of privacy, man. And so his feeling was that he had every right to conceal his identity into not have anyone know who was behind this website who is behind the Facebook accounts who is selling t-shirts and earning money from that. And that was his feeling and I explained. To him that, you know, this was a public website public issue. There was misinformation coming from his site. And that that doesn't give him the right to kind of hide who he is. And I also want to say like the person they don't necessarily understand the dynamics of libel and privacy law and things like that. So the fact that he was upset isn't surprising to me. But we ended up actually staying on the phone for like close to an hour. Talking a lot about it. We had quotes from him in the story. And he really wanted to emphasize that this was not him trying to explain the Elvis movement. He does agree with a lot of the stuff. But yes, he understands how to kind of you know, run a site and make money online. Where is the line? Is there align even between pages like this that are associated with real protests that you know, exist to coordinate the yellow vest movement and pages like this one perhaps that are dedicated to helping somebody profit off of it? How do you determine which is which looking at the website? The first thing was it has ads on it. A lot of advocacy sites. Don't have ads and also is this person going to great lengths to really promote the site and push it out there and the answer is yes, he was. And he was using to misleading impersonation Facebook accounts to spam. The stuff out there to drive that traffic. And so these are classic internet marketing techniques that we see. So with us having these hearings looking at this stuff that really fits that profile. But I think he believes the stuff, but I think he also saw an opportunity to capitalize on it. And so both things are kind of true. What are you guys do when you find things like this, which must be all the time? Do you take an active role in trying to get them removed or get them regulated or you simply reporting on them? And then kind of standing back, you know, there's a little bit of both, you know, one this is activity that's taking place on Facebook. And so if you're going to write about, it there is I think duty to go to Facebook and say, hey, you know, we found in this case we found to Facebook pages together close to about ten thousand likes. We found a Facebook group that he was running a private group that had about two thousand members. And then we found those two accounts that was spamming the content. And so we set all of that to Facebook and. We said, you know, we're gonna report on this. And I sent them the evidence that these accounts are probably not linked to real people, and we're probably violating their terms, and they did respond by removing the groups the two pages and the two accounts. Have you been seeing this kind of stuff not necessarily just associated with the Elvis, but this kind of hyper partisan political misinformation ramp up as we head into an election year absolutely us having spent the last roughly four years or so very focused a lot on US. But also, we done coverage about Germany, France, Brazil, even Japan other countries, we know that of course, this stuff kicks up a lot more when there's an election. So as baseline, you know, that's going to happen. But also Justin Trudeau has become a bit of a global icon of liberalism global icon of oke nece in some ways right of which some people love and some people hate, and so he is inspiring a lot of very strong emotions. And the second thing is that Canada has been pretty strong in measures against. Russia. And in fact, our foreign minister Christopher Lind is banned from Russia. And so all of those things, you know, as our team has been looking at it, we expect this to be really high water Mark for, you know, online campaigns and online manipulation and digital deception we expect a lot of those things to happen for this campaign in Canada. And the the increase in hypertension, news will absolutely be a part of that. I might be asking you to take me kind of down the rabbit hole here. But obviously there's a ton of partisan issues in Canada right now that people real people feel incredibly strongly about when you're looking at sites like this or or looking at the general spread of information Candida, how do you determine what is kind of good faith, angry partisanship, and what is an attempt to manipulate discord? So one piece of it is that there's nothing wrong with partisanship. And that's really really important because the danger in going too far with this stuff is that you start to squelch free speech or you start to get Facebook to have a really strong arm tactic. And that's not what we want. So you have to look at you know, one figuring out who's behind the stuff. That's really. Important who are these people are they genuine passionate person for politics or do they not care in? They're simply somebody trying to make money, and we found this in the US where literally there were companies whose job is just to run kind of niche websites would say oh politics is doing really, well, let's spend a Republican Silat spin up democratic site. So that was one indication was you had people playing both sides that clearly is not genuine partisanship. The Ellen of also the monetization piece are people actively making money from this, and you can have partisans for making money from it. But as people I've spoken to over the years, you know, they may start as a partisan, but eventually becomes a business for them. So that peace is aligned walk, but you really just have to investigate and figure out who's there and the patterns of the content that they're putting out in other cases, you know, the stuff that is completely false is it deeply misleading in terms of the headline creating false impression. So that kind of thing that doesn't help public debate that doesn't help disagreement and that kind of stuff, you know, needs to be looked at and needs to be flagged. And I think that's. Is important. And then there's also the element of attribution is this people actually in Canada who are actively involved in these sites, or can you actually trace it back to people outside of the country who are not Canadian to state entities to other people who want to influence the process, and that obviously is very problematic has it been weaponized in the other way now because one thing that I've seen a fair bit of is people accusing anyone who has a different opinion of them specifically when it comes to heated political stuff of being bought or being drills. And it's almost like now the disagreement itself has become a suspect. Yeah. We've we've gone over to somewhat into the other extreme of anytime. There's someone on Twitter who disagrees with them. Suddenly there bought their troll. And in our -bility to actually have a reason and fact face disagreement is a core part of democracy. It is a terrible thing of getting to the point where people will just write off anyone who disagrees with them as part of some kind of campaign. This is where I think journalists have to be really diligent about this work and actually figure out where is this coming from and not do lazy work where we just argue that anything that's anti Trudeau is, you know, part of some kind of disinformation campaign. Everybody has responsibility for this. And I think journalists again like us in the Toronto Star trying to look at this and trying to be diligent about it and show our work. So that people can make up their minds for themselves. What can ordinary digital citizens do not just necessarily to sort of diagnose the stuff and be wary about what they're reading and consuming, but also to sort of prevent the spread of it. Do you report it, do you reply to it and say, I know, you know, this is coming from somewhere else with the citizens arrest here. I think there's a few things that the average person can do the first piece is is just having awareness that in this median virement the stuff that you see that maybe has a lot of re tweaks or maybe has a lot of likes. It's easy to buy those. It's easy to manipulate those. So don't just go buy popularity alone. The second piece is to. About having a kind of pause. So in a lot of cases, especially with political stuff. They wanna get emotional rise to you that makes you share it. And I really encourage people before you take that action of liking or sharing a retreat or retweeting to actually pause and think about, you know, why do I wanna share this? Why do I wanna pass along is a possible that they are trying to get me to do something manipulating me? So the awareness and the pause or two really important things. And then the last thing is that you absolutely can report posts that you know, that are misleading that you think are part of some kind of larger operation or that you think are suspicious. It's absolutely something you can do. And of course, you could also, you know, send it to journalists local journalists national journalists to me, just tag you. And Jane, basically, and everything we we are absolutely happy to have that happen. And so, you know, those are those are things people can do. And I think overall I hope folks come away with it feeling like there is something for you to do you shouldn't feel overwhelmed by this. There are basic things that you can think about and do that are going to. You in the bigger picture? What is the long-term plan for this BuzzFeed Toronto Star project? The the overarching thing is we wanna look at the different players that are trying to influence public opinion and kind of play in the public debate. And so that's actually a pretty broad umbrella about it. It doesn't mean that everybody that we write about is going to be nefarious. You know, we're very interested in operations like on terra proud, and how started as an anti Kathleen Wynne thing. It's now expanding to be more national what role are they going to play in this election? And you know, this isn't a registered organization, it's somebody who's clearly a right of center partisan who's running it. They can exist in this space. But that kind of entity is a newer in terms of what we've seen in Canada. So we're looking at that. We are of course, interested can we find stuff that is originally from outside of Canada trying to influence the public debate. And also, I think we need to pay attention to any potential overreach by the social networks and also the government of Canada. You know, they're talking a lot about this elections can. Is looking at it. We don't wanna have hand government response either. And so we're certainly not just looking at you know, calling out stuff and exposing stuff. We're also trying to think is there any overreach by the platform. So the government as well to hate the term fake news. I do. I am tired of it. It must great on you after a while. It does. I mean, this is a term. I started using in twenty fourteen when I was doing a research project into the spread of rumors and misinformation online, and I didn't put a lot of thought into using it. And then, you know, used it again as we were publishing research, we're doing in two thousand sixteen you know, there was a certain amount of rigor that I used for it. It was completely false content. That was created to Steve and that had an economic motive that those are the three things that I use to identify fake news. There's no resemblance to what it's used to describe. You know, now, it's a catch all term mostly it's used by Donald Trump to condemn reporting that he doesn't agree with other politicians have kind of picked that up as well. I think Donald Trump has actually been very effective taking it and make. What he wanted to be? And so have unfortunately lot of autocratic leaders around the world, passing so-called fake news laws that are actually restraining press freedom in those places. So it's become a very loaded dangerous term in some ways. Did you coin you didn't coined the phrase? I mean, no, I didn't want it. It's a phrase that's been around for a long time. I think the most I would say is certainly helped popularize it in late twenty sixteen with some of the research and reporting that we put out there and graduations. Yeah. It's a great honor. And I will never escape it. I suppose do you think the government's need to regulate social media? I'm really big fan of governments threatening to regulate social media. I'm a big fan of them using it as a threat and getting the companies to actually take some responsibility for what is on their networks for a long time. The Facebook's and Twitter's and YouTube at the world have said, you know, we're just a platform. Yes. We have some rules. But you know, we're open and we're we're not like a new site moderate moderating content. Now, they have finally realized that they absolutely do have a responsibility. They finally realized that the outcomes of not taking you know, basic responsibility can really put people's lives in danger. I mean, the big sample of this is me, and mar where ethnic cleansing has happened. And you know, Facebook was the platform where a lot of this hate speech, and we're a lot of the organizing for this was taking place. So I like governments really putting the pressure on them to come up with better solutions putting pressure on them to be more transparent. But there's a very you could see a lot of bad laws potentially being drafted that could end up siphoning, free speech. So I am a bit wary of. Of seeing a lot of legislation come into play. My last question. Do you have a personal Facebook account, the us to talk with your great, enter, whomever? I do how do you feel about that? I. So I recently deleted in the Instagram off my phone for variety of reasons. One of which is just a mandated that they collect. I keep the Facebook app on my phone mostly because use Facebook so much for work. There's only so much research you can do of things happening on Facebook without being signed in. So I'm very conflicted about it. I don't post a lot. I don't share a lot. I don't engage a lot because I look at Facebook, and I see all of the data collection. And you know, it's sort of like seeing through the matrix. I can't look at it. And just enjoy my friends photo of their kid. I see all the other stuff around.
