Tom Hourigan, BBC News Journalist, on reporters' mental health during the pandemic

"Tom to journalism dakota uk podcast. What's the working situation like fuel cell from the moment when speaking Pretty normal ashley for us. I'm part of the main national radio. Newsroom at the bbc's headquarters in london. I'm for the most part we have been working in the office and that is mainly being technical reasons other than anything else. The bbc simply hasn't had enough laptops to give out to the hundreds and hundreds of staff that we have so we have been coming into the office. Open very kovic secure. We've been doing covid tests before we started a run of shifts with social distanced Meetings on zoo now So it's all very siphon. It's quite strange how quickly that has become normal practice compared with how we were just a year ago and running a completely different sort of operations. So we're still producing all the same content. Hopefully listeners won't notice too much of a difference but it's actually quite different in terms of the the way that we're working in the office. But i have done very little working in the large air and so i've had a more normal pandemic than a lot of other. People are surprised business as usual than yeah. I guess oh Because the knees wheels. Keep turning. And i'm working on output for radios to full mainly and there are huge audiences to stations. Who are expecting us to be giving them as much corona virus news and updates as we possibly can and so we don't have a choice you just got to keep on trucking and you've been busy In january this year you launched your website news break yes and that came about because i was alarmed quite frankly at the start of the year any people i was saying on social media and this was journalists from across the sector and not just broadcasters that i know people the i never met who seemed to be really quite despondent that we got into twenty twenty one and things hadn't changed from people i've spoken to over the last couple of months even though it was obvious that we weren't going to get into january and suddenly everything would be k. Again i think psychologically people thought that that would be the opportunity to maybe look full woods getting into a new year and yet because nothing did change. People started to think well. How much longer are we going to have to do this. How much longer are we going to be. Just bombarded with so much grim information that we have to process and imparts an audience in the clearest possible way that we can seemed endless. You've already seen a range of contributions from reporters at pale. See sky news and global radio. What's been the key takeaways of those pieces and some of the common messages is being amazing. Really how willing people have been to be completely honest and upfront about the experiences that they've had we've had a whole variety of experiences shed with us from people having to move home in the middle of a pandemic and going through personal tragedies like the loss of relatives at having to juggle that with the grenades that processing a work and having to strike some kind of balance and inevitably taking a huge toll on them. And we've also had people talking about the ways in which their day-to-day lives have changed work. You know we had somebody right for us in local radio who has been pretty much entirely working from home in a way that hadn't happened during the pandemic and yet there is still the responsibility on them pretty much. Is the soldier journalists for that local radio stations to provide listeners to that station with the same insight sign local knees into stronger balance between bringing people the information that needs to about corona virus. And everything that's going on. We're licensed the pandemic in their area but to find light shade to how he had taken great comfort for his own personal mental wellbeing. In seeking out the happy stories the quirky stories. The thing that people remember at the end of the knees. I think shown the there are so many different approaches to dealing with wellbeing to managing your own wellbeing. And there is no one-size-fits-all experience. Of course there is. Everybody stories is individual but the way the people have dealt with. I think has given something people who've read the articles on yeast break a little bit of an insight into again making them that they're not alone that they can be a route through even if things seem really difficult. Great to have talking about experiences isn't just writing into the void it's resonating and having that ripple effect as it were. Let's come onto your own experiences with mental health tom. What can you tell me about that so. I was diagnosed with health and cries. He some years ago evan. In a nutshell. It's basically what used to be called hypochondria. But i would suddenly develop a symptom of some salt. Be that Amal come my body or a strange sensation. In my chest you focus on it. It becomes something that you come ignore. The more you worry about it was the simpson becomes suddenly. That's the way you perceive it because the brain very cleverly is mimicking the simpson rav of actually being a sign of something serious. But you don't know that and because you have the status in your minds. The nagging doubtful sajida to adult show. You go have various tests the knees really and until you get results. That comeback clear it's negative than you can't rest up econ rest easy and that becomes sometimes. We'll encompassing it. Got so bad for me that i had to go into therapy because it was taking every waking soul when you're trying to do a job like mine as journalists with you gotta have your wits about you gotta have you full focus and i couldn't devote mine time line sometimes so the task in hand so i that something has to be done about it so i went through several courses of therapy and ended up taking medication. Which is she helped me a lot. It's not for everyone in my side. That everybody i speak about this but for me. It is certainly helped for me to get in control of the health anxiety. It's not a kid by any means. I think very few people who've experienced mental health problems that the kid somewhat like that but it certainly allows me to be in control of the rather than it being controlled mate.

EU Decision on AstraZeneca's Covid-19 Vaccine Expected Today

"European regulators will decide today whether to approve the astrazeneca oxford corona virus vaccine for use in the eu. It's a big moment for the union. European countries have been lagging behind in their vaccination rollout compared to the uk and the us one of the reasons for that is the eu had ordered more doses of the astra zeneca vaccine the the pfizer biontech vaccine which was approved in december. They'd been hoping this new approval would get them up to speed but even before that happens there have been complications. Astrazeneca has told the e you it won't be able to fulfil its order right away and now more shortages could be on the horizon to discuss the situation. I'm joined now by the wall street. Journal's boy on panchev ski from berlin. Glad you're here boy on hi there mark boy on. Why is this shortage emerging. So what's happening is this. The european union doesn't seem to have ordered enough. Those is from the companies that kind of in the vaccine in the race to put a vaccine to market. And not only that but now it happens so that astrazeneca which developed a vaccine together with to oxford university seems to have had a problem in its supply chain and it saying econ deliver the original amount does is there were promised for for the first quarter of this year and these two things together have basically created a lack of supply for the european union. And now they are simply not enough shots for for all the people that need to receive them boy on. What is the response from astra zeneca. We heard from an e you commissioner. Recently who expressed tremendous dissatisfaction. Yes well there has been actually a bit of a war of words between the european union national governments and the european commission which which speaks for the european union and on one side and astra astrazeneca the pharmaceutical giant on the other astrazeneca denies that dave violated contractual obligations. They're saying they would been deliver. What they are meant to be delivering. But they have a bit of a hiccup related to a contractor in belgium and therefore they won't be able to meet the target but they're not saying that they are breaking commitments in law and that's the debate between the two sides. The you saying you know you. You've said you'll do this. You have an obligation to do that. The contract we haven't seen it is not public It's confidential and there has been talk now that the contract would be published so we can all see what's actually written in the contract and who is actually honoring mets or not. Can you way the company kind of rejects the european byu. That is done something wrong. Essentially and they're basically in a nutshell saying this is a normal part of this. This huge complex effort to produce hundreds of millions dozes for the whole world in in a ongoing pandemic boy on as that discussion is taking place. What's happening across europe to deal with this well essentially. There's a bit of a political backlash now in some countries of the european union notably in the most populous country germany because it has become apparent that there are not enough those this of vaccines of any kinds against coronavirus in the immediate term and that essentially means that people will who are vulnerable will not be able to be To get the job and be protected he immediately and that means also that the lockdowns were might be prolonged that the restrictions and the measures that we have in place in europe will will loss longer than people have perhaps hope for. There's so much they can do. Essentially what they could do is they could order more dozes from the companies. That have a vaccine that has been authorized by regulators. And so far we've got. As of friday. Essentially three companies astrazeneca is most likely to be authorized in europe. Then we have pfizer and biontech and we have modern. So what the the choice for the european union's toward more is now the problem with that. Is that everyone's those so you if you whoever orders now will be at the back of the queue. there's global q. Of nations or waiting for supplies and and some of them are huge. Markets such as the united states such as great britain and in the case of zenica india. And so on. So that won't be easy and and there will be slight delay in delivering. Whatever new orders might might be placed

Economic agenda question one will the us labor market get back to where it was before the pandemic the indicator will be watching to answer. This question is simple. Three point five percent. That was the unemployment rate about a year ago right before the brutal covid recession. And it's easy to forget now because it seems so long ago but that three point five percent unemployment rate was the lowest unemployment rate in half a century but now the unemployment rate is six point seven percent and the labor market is actually worse than even that number implies because the unemployment rate doesn't count people who have given up looking for jobs either because they had to stay home to take care of kids or relatives or because they got discouraged and hopefully a lot of those people will start looking for jobs and getting them in the coming months and years as the economy reopened and if the unemployment rate can get back down close to three point five percent again or maybe even lower than that it will be a sign that the labor market has recovered. And there's a lot riding on this. A strong job market leads to other favorable trends for example before the pandemic households of all incomes and backgrounds including all racial and ethnic backgrounds were getting raises decent raises income inequality was falling as a matter of fact and the poverty rate had gone down for five straight years. That's all largely the result of a tight labor market a strong labor market. And so. that is the question that we're going to be asking questions. Will the labor market make a comeback question number two. how much will the biden administration reverse. Parts of the trump economic agenda there are a couple of different indicators that we will be paying attention to first up taxes yes remember. Before the pandemic the most significant economic legislation that was passed during the trump ears was the tax cuts and jobs act which had been passed at the end of twenty seventeen and there was a lot in that bill but maybe the most important part was a big cut in the tax rate paid by american corporations yes so the corporate tax rate went from about thirty five percent of the money corporations made each year all the way down to twenty one percent. That was a major overhaul of the tax code. So that is the number that we are going to be following because president biden campaigned on raising the corporate tax. Not all the way back to where it was before. President trump took office. But you know higher than it is now the other indicator. We're going to be watching to see how much the biden agenda undoes. The trump agenda is about the trade war with china. The trump administration raise the average tariff on chinese imports to the us from about three percent to more than nineteen percent last year. Will those terrorists go back down. That's the question we're asking and the answer is not necessarily or at least not immediately for now. President biden has only said that he is going to consult with allies other countries in europe and asia about how to deal with china and keep in mind that right now actually is still a lot of bipartisan support. In the us to continue being tough on china and china itself is viewed very unfavourably in a lot of countries that are allied with the us that's largely because these countries believed that china did a bad job of handling the outbreak of corona virus which originated in china before spreading out so there is a chance that the trade war with china will continue and an easy way to see if it does is to follow the average tariffs on chinese imports and check to see if they stay roughly where they are and finally question three. How much money will the federal government as part of the biden agenda so far the biden administration is communicating. That is comfortable borrowing more money through the treasury market to finance. Its spending plans. And here's one of the arguments that the biden administration is making it saying that now is actually an appropriate time for the government to be borrowing more money in order to provide economic stimulus investments for example. Here's janet yellen. President biden's pick for treasury secretary during her confirmation hearing on tuesday but right now with interest rates to restorick lows. The smartest thing we can do is act big. Here's what janet yellen means because interest rates are so low yellen arguing that it is cheap for the government to payback that debt so that the government should borrow money now to boost the economy. The national debt. Going up there for at least for a little while won't be a sign of failure to the biden administration. It'll just be a sign that it is pursuing its goals. So here's the indicator we're going to be watching the national debt to gdp ratio this ratio compares the amount of money that the government owes to the value of everything the economy produces in a single year during the trump. Here's the national debt to gdp ratio has gone up from roughly seventy five percent to where it is now which is close to one hundred percent into big amount of the rise in the debt was because of the money that was spent in response to the covert recession but even so that is the highest amount of debt as a share of the economy since just after the second world war. And here's why we'll be watching the national debt to gdp ratio closely. There has been a fascinating debate within economics in recent years. A lot of economists have become more comfortable with the federal government running up higher debts saying it is not as dangerous as economists once believed but other economists disagree they worry for example that running up too much debt will lead to much higher inflation or that it will lead to interest rates going way up if the investors lend money to the government. Start getting nervous and with the national debt now forecasted to go higher than it's ever been as a share of the economy. We're going to get a chance to find out who's right so either way it's going to be a fascinating experiment to watch and that is what we plan to do. We'll be watching.

There are nearly ten million fewer jobs than before it started and as for president biden's economic agenda. His proposals there are two parts to it as he said in his speech last week. A two step plan of rescue and recovery to step plan to build a bridge to other side of the crisis. We face to a better stronger. More secure america. The rescue part of the plan is targeted at supporting people and businesses that are still struggling while the pandemic is going on more money for local governments and small businesses for unemployment insurance and those fourteen hundred dollar checks to individuals and the second part of the biden agenda. The recovery part is targeted at helping the economy in the long term once the pandemic is finally behind us infrastructure manufacturing innovation research and development and clean energy investments in a care game economy and skills and training needed bar workers be able to compete and win in the global economy of the coming years. Just how much of the biden agenda will actually get past after its in congress and whether the agenda will succeed if it does get past is just still too early to know but there are questions that we can already start talking about how to measure biden agendas success in the coming years soup today.

But there's just 11 days until the new Congress is sworn in on January. 3rd so Trump May be able to utilize a different option to kill the bill without signing or vetoing it. Something called the Pocket veto, meaning he's holding the bill in his pocket and refusing to return it to Capitol Hill, making it impossible for Congress to hold a veto override. So unless Congress sends him the bill today he could utilize this option. Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's been waiting for the president to specify the amount of stimulus he's willing to support.

"I did learn sales and i had a talent for sale so i knew that whatever i did i can always find work because people always need somebody to sell for them but then of course i said we'll let strike out on my own and start these businesses but the businesses Did not work. So i took that job and it was just a really toxic situation. I had to work with people. I didn't like and sometimes at lunch i would just go down on my car and cry and then i was in that abusive relationship for four years because basically i had no self-confidence the one thing that precipitated me leaving that job was my boss moving in with me in the same office and i had kind of a jerry maguire ending where i said forget it. I can't be here anymore. I had no job to go to when i broke up with the abusive boyfriend. I had no other relationship to go to. But i just kinda knew that everything would work out for me I love your story. And i relate to it especially this part of your story where we always have naysayers in our. We have people who say we can't do something or we shouldn't do something and usually they're the closest people to us there are family. There are close friends. The other relate to is this whole business class thing. I started as an econ. Major and quickly realized i wasn't jiving with the not kind of class i got into film and you grew up with art being centerpoint. As you've just said. I know one of the people who's both special in your life but also was that early. Naysayers your father. Keene talk about your relationship with him and how played a role in your life. Yeah well i've always had kind of a good relationship with my dad in. I admire him very much. And my father is all of five foot three. He's a very small man. And i'm not even by feet tall so i definitely take after him in a lot of ways but after the two failed businesses. I said dad. I'm going to start another business and remember all had was art school training. So what would you say to a crazy kid. Who said okay. I'm going to do another one. He said you're crazy. He said you're not qualified. You're living in a dream and it was really really hurtful to me and we didn't talk for about a year. We had a rift between us. I didn't really come to family functions. But i gotta tell you that my father. He did come around. He called me and he said. I am so sorry for anything that i said that was hurtful to you and linda. I m so proud of you. And i want everybody. Who's listening to this. If you have children please tell them how proud you are them every day because they are dining your it. I thought my heart would absolutely burst wide open when he said that.

He says i grew up in the depression. We didn't cast. We didn't have when people we had bread lines and we were so isolated. I want to tell people that are listening to us. Maybe you have a great support system. Maybe dull and i didn't. I didn't have the support my family. So i listened to things like this podcast. I went to entrepreneurial groups.

So you've gotta find that group who can support you and who you can learn from also remember the people in your life habit agenda. My dad had an agenda. He was being protected dad. He didn't wanna see me fail again. He didn't wanna see me get hurt. I see that now.

How To Evaluate SEO Campaign Success With Cassie Dell

"So far this week casting I've talked about the workflows for conducting your Seo Research, sitting your Seo Strategy yesterday we talked about implementing your seo projects and the process for making sure that you're doing that successfully and today we're GonNa talk about how to evaluate your Seo efforts. All right. Here's the fourth installment of Seo workflow week with Cassie del Client success manager at search metrics. cassie welcome back to SEO workflow week on the voices of search podcast old. On Thursday happy Thursday we're getting close to the finish line here were already talking about how to evaluate our SEO projects. We've gone through the process of understanding research, understanding our organization, our goals who our customers are, and then figuring out what we need to do from an Seo perspective to reach them Ramos said our strategies and yesterday you and I talked about how to implement your projects by take away from that conversation was that you need to first off. Get a baseline second, do the development and work within three pretty strategic about how you're going to roll out your project to understand whether you're going to rule everything at once or whether it's going to be a rolling launch and that gets into the project evaluation phase. Assuming that we have, you know a reasonable baseline to evaluate. Are you just doing an AB test for every SEO project? You're doing what was the before and after what's your process for thinking? About evaluate in your campaigns. Yep I always tell clients avoid looking at just one part of the data some people can just get stuck reporting one important project that they feel the most personally tied to, and then they're missing half the picture or they're only looking at desktop and not focusing on mobile. So definitely, just making sure to take a look at every single thing that we've implemented towards this project that make sure that we can track or looking today. It's interesting philosophy that you have to look at the data in aggregate, but you also have to look at it from a very segmented segmented point of view where I've run. Seo Projects where mostly if they're on the technical side. You've seen not great results, but then you split everything up by desktop versus mobile and all the sudden you're seeing that we saw a significant decrease in one and a significant increase in the other. And they blended together make it look like nothing happened well, that doesn't really tell the whole picture. So. When you go through evaluation, there's a couple of different components that could weigh in. You know what's the timeframe you're looking at how you slicing and dicing your data? What are some of the other things that you're looking at to evaluate your projects and making sure that you're getting the whole picture yup definitely timeline is one of the most important things. So let's say spend three months. We don't see a lot of movement however like you said on that Bogle sexually tend to see a lot of movement. Some things could be really successful in one category not accessible in the other. So, really keeping an eye on that, and then obviously the we we kind of tag and segregate things especially keywords according to our business. It's helpful to kind of look at that as well because different segments or maybe different as ECON Zeitler say product category. Let's say we sell candles and pillows and pillows is doing really well, it's picking up all of these things maybe that system easier industry to get into whereas something like channels can be a little bit more trickier it could take us longer. There's a lot more competition. So things like that. That's kind of why we granular segregate all. That data because in some areas, it could work quicker versus lower could work better versus worse. So it's helpful for us to audit all that and see that data and make changes accordingly to things that pop into my mind listening to what you're talking about a one. As you mentioned the time line, you know I think that this is something that a lot of non Seo's that are evaluating the effectiveness of Seo's get frustrated with how long does it take for us to see if this campaign works there is no way for us to say, Hey, we're going to roll out this. You know new list of key words or there's new content and we're going to understand the impact of it in one week or two weeks. Right? You just don't have a great sense of how and when and why Google is to adjust your rankings based on your content and there is some predictability. Once you start seeing the ball moving. But when Gould decides to start reprioritising your content is coming up in the air. How do you think about not only setting the time line in terms of when you're running your evaluation for your campaigns but also how to communicate realistic expectations. Cheer leadership. Are Sure I'd always tell folks to keep a pulse on whatever Google's doing. A much better job at indicating some upcoming important banking's are upcoming ranking factors. So as you're working on content, let's say you had a strategy going for awhile knowing that that authoritative content to be there, it needs to have some type of backing to it adjust that strategy accordingly, and then obviously Okita be in better shape to note performance, it's going to follow not only something that's good for your company but also what's good and Google favoring that kind of content as well.

"That we haven't that the administration and Congress. But the Senate Republicans have blocked and to American people, households and businesses I think it's absolutely unconscionable. There's definitely an addiction and rental crisis that is right at our feet. It's right in front of it and we're not doing anything about it. These. Are Clothing and we're not doing anything about it I. I'm just in shock. So, let me step back and ask you the thirty thousand foot view question, which is we saw a very miserly stimulus right at at the beginning of Oh. Nine, it was I know this sounds ridiculous to say about eight hundred billion dollars wouldn't prove to be way too small. We saw the rise of. Nut Not just here but also in the UK hey, and then in two thousand seventeen, we saw a massive pro-cyclical tax cut in stimulus. I thought the rule book was hey, in a deeper. countercyclical fiscal stimulus not late cycle pro cyclical fiscal the meals. What's the lesson to be taken away from this? Some body is not telling the truth about by the deficit and about gross because. What we know is that the short run deviations like two, thousand, eight, two, thousand, nine in order for them to remain short on deviation and of output. You have to go big and you have to assure the American people that something is on the way. And that they won't be out there on their own and the same is true for businesses. is absolutely unconscionable that businesses that through no fault of their own. Are laying off tens of thousands of people. The airlines are laying off tens of thousands of people. And? That's not gonNA affect them. Of course, their dollar support, many other jobs, and not just in the cities where there are hubs. This is this is this is true in general. So I'm still in shock that we are not doing more and that the the lessons of the great recession have not been have not been learned. It's almost as if. Some folks were awake for the first two days of Econ one-to-one and just slept through the rest of the semester. The missed the chapter on canes. So here's the pushback. Hey, listen we don't have access to infinite money three trillion dollars is a lot and at a certain point we have to start being concerned about the deficit how do you respond to that sort of pushback? We do have to become concerned about the deficit, but that time is not now absolutely not now that would be misplace. How do you? How do you sustain growth?.

Britain Introduces a Scaled-Back Wage Support Plan

"The job support scheme explained. I'm announcing today, the new jobs support scheme. Almost as soon as the fairly scheme was announced, Reshi sooner was being asked what comes next as that job saving program comes to it's inevitable end the chancellor was on his feet in the Commons to reveal it replacement. The government will directly support the wages of people in work giving businesses who faced depressed on the option of keeping employees in a job on two hours rather than making them redundant. It will allow millions of people to effectively go part time working a minimum of one third of their normal hours. But keep around four fifths of their regular wage employers will pay for the our staff do work, and then they'll split the bill for some of the lost time with the government paying a third each it starts on November fast more cost three, hundred, million pounds a month editorial column though Physics Chancellor will have to dig even deeper into the Treasury's pockets soon. Our prediction is today announcements might not be enough and there will be more to come. As jobs go and the economy finds itself in Cold Storage Richie soon will be under pressure to repeat the magic tricks he produced in the spring which carried the economy through to the start of the recovery. The trouble with magic tricks is that they unless impressive the second time the chancellor also has less to play with the furlough scheme was ferociously expensive it cannot be afforded again ministers hope that by the spring testing really will be working infections falling and vaccine beginning to offer some hope but that could be more than six months away. Consumer Business Editor Jonathan Prynne was watching wishy soon accent Aspen Jonathan Time Slow told the Commons ECON save every job and he can't save every company but he does appear to put more money into this than a lot of people were expecting I. Think it's a package of measures that will be generally welcomed and the feedback initial feedback on on getting from the business community is the pretty pleased with what got compared with what they were facing over the coming winter particularly the cliff edge at the end of October when the original color scheme was to. The new scheme which tops up wages of employees who think about to work should help save a good number of job losses. We don't know yet how it's going to pan out, but certainly, companies will feel a little bit more comfortable about surviving the coming wind. So the night did this yesterday the massive all this is quite complicated there a Jonathan, you've got companies paying some money and then the government pays money and then a company will pay some more money. The employee doesn't get quite as much money as they used to get. A lot of people are going to be wondering how much earning now. Yes it is complicated but I think I think companies are getting use complicated schemes now after the the opposite rash of Schemes Feller Scheme was quite complicated the various loan scheme of were quite complex as well. companies got debt. So seeing through the bureaucracy that unwelcomed of Europe see but they do welcome the fact that the government will pay them effectively to to keep on staff and I got to be a good thing because I think mass unemployment is the reigning big specter the haunts everyone at the my with the economy is just about creeping on the talk of the shape has gone but. I. Think if if we were looking at huge amounts of two, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty style unemployment of the winter that that could be something to change the calculation for everyone.

Tyler Jordan On How To Advertise In A Down Market

"Today's guest teacher Tyler Jordan is the founder of Jordan digital marketing and he's been helping entrepreneurs get out there for years. His Digital Marketing Agency is focused on getting people, new clients, new leads through Google ads, facebook ads, Lincoln, facebook Instagram, you name it. This is why I'm so excited to have him here today as a guest teacher because we're GONNA get some. Free Consulting. This is a really good lesson on the importance of paid advertising right now in growing your business. Even if you have a small budget that small budget can go a long way right now and you should not miss this opportunity tyler Jordan's GonNa, teach you pass it onto him. Now, we'll be back with my takeaways to wrap up the episode, but for now, takeaway? Tyler Everyone, this is tyler. Over Jordan digital marketing. We've put together a six point plan for how to run paid acquisition marketing. Even in the midst of pandemic, the world has profoundly changed over the last two months. People are staying home at a drastically higher rate even as things start to open up even with restrictions being lifted fewer people are going to go out pure people are going to restaurants a lot fewer people are going to be commuting twitter square are two of the biggest companies to announce new work from home policies that. Allow people to work from home indefinitely in a recent Gallup poll more than fifty percent of Americans said they'd like to continue to work from home even after the restrictions are lifted, that means fewer people commuting, which means fewer people listening to radio listening to streaming services, seeing billboards or out of home media. So outdoor marketing opportunities have all but dried up, but it also means that there's a ton more people sitting in their houses searching and scrolling all day long in front of their computers. This leaves a huge opportunity for those who. Are Willing to take it. We've seen massive pullbacks and marking spin, but the people who have stayed the course with their digital spend are seeing major benefits. We've put together a six point plan to explain how you can restart or improve on your current paid marketing strategies. The first point businesses down right now, but it's not going to be gone forever this also down for everyone a lot of people have pulled spin really dramatically if you have the money to continue advertising, this is the time for you to take over your space. Even if your product is dependent on people being out and about you can spend this time to position yourself for the rebound when business comes back those who spend the time and money to stay in front of people right now will continue to be in their consideration set those who poll their marketing will be lost and forgotten, and right now CPM's CPC's are at all time lows in March. The average see pm in the United States fellow three dollars for the first time in two years and the lowest amount globally ever they've increased. About four dollars since then but that's still thirty percent cheaper than what they were towards the end of February. The second point think about the channels you running billboard. Or dead print is struggling in has been struggling for a while TV is hot right now because everybody's took it home and digital is is pure fire right now even as things open up their millions of more people staying home and scrolling their timelines searching from their phones than normal, we're getting finally to see the true capability of the Internet during his time, which is weirdly exciting. NETFLIX's who lives social feeds and Youtube are quickly becoming the go-to entertainment sources for the vast majority of America. If your business typically relies on out of home media or events, look into Ott, youtube bands, and think about runs video on facebook. The third point we'd like to make is think about Tom don't forget the situation that people are facing right now but also try not to be overly cliche. The number of companies that are talking about navigating these uncertain times ridden risen by an astronomical amount you need to care and be mindful of the situation, but don't default to being too scared to have a real message. Make sure you're still telling people who you are and what you do if you can share the story of how your business is helping in the. Current situation or how the company is making changes to ensure that things remain safe when life goes back to normal the goal here is to remain top of mind for your ideal customer segment because if you don't someone else will we have an education based client advertising Kobe coming resources guide as a way to fill the top of the funnel for when their program starts. Gets back to normal. They're gonNA have thousands of new leads in their crm that they can go and attack right away they in cost relieves right now dropped to less than half of their normal rate, and while they're not converting any users right now, they're perfectly set up for the rebound. The fourth point, the noise has been cleared out. CPM's are lower than ever, but that's because no one else has advertising. So that means you have an opportunity to own the conversation personally I've only seen masterclass ads on youtube for like the last two months and I, actually finally just signed up to learn how to cook Mexican food. David able to own the airwaves because so many people have been scared and pulled out of the market. We've seen this sort of result, a lot of times from companies that we work with two. We've seen one of our fintech clients had a sixty five percent increase in conversions with only a thirty, five percent increase in spend on their top competitor campaigns during lockdown their competition pulled back and they stayed strong and stay true to their paid strategy, and they're reaping the benefits for another client of ours has been able to see a sixty one point five percent jump in numbering conversions even after social distancing quarantining started to happen, they've only increased spend about forty six percent. Outside jump in nombre and conversions, versus the spend they put forward simply because there's fewer people in the space another client was able to see a sixty one percents jump in non brand conversions after stay home orders and social distancing. They've only put together a forty five percent increase in spencer seeing outside his jump in overall conversions. The benefit here is that the audience that you're getting in front of right now is one that has more time on his hand and his testing out more tools during their downtime. So people who are getting in front of them are having an opportunity to get leads that maybe wouldn't be so to jump on a demo or get on a call with you. But if you're able to continue to spend that money and own your niche, you have a really unique opportunity to get in front of more of the right people and it might not pay off right now but it will pay off when business starts to get back to normal. And this brings us to our fifth point people are shopping around dramatically more people have more time on their hands. Money needs a stretch further. So people are taking the time to test out multiple different tools whereas they used to just focus in on one and do the easiest thing we're seeing a lot of people sign up for leads, download content and request demos in the SAS face embedded these space, and it's our job to go capture that interest. We're also seeing a lot of people buying a lot more on e commerce sites because they're stuck at home and they need fix their shopping addiction anyway. So we're seeing a lot of huge increases in ECON sector as well. If you're running an ECOMMERCE site, the best place for you to go and find that traffic and convert those users is GonNa be through digital through search social and display. So make sure that you're getting out there in front of people with the right message and using right audience the sixth and. Final point is one that we harp on regularly all of our audits and that's you need to speak to people at different stages of the funnel. Differently this is important at all times the year but especially right now, make sure that you're using the right tone to introduce yourself to new customers be a little bit more mindful of the situation those interactions but once you've introduced yourself, make sure that you let them know why you're different and why they should go with you over the other companies are shopping around with. Once they become accustomed to make sure that you asked her promote you to their friends. One of the big ways that people find business normally is they ask their friends recommendations. So if you can facilitate that with paid marketing that'll put you in a position right now with all your new customers that you bring in today to really allow that to snowball on top of itself. Once the economy starts and things start to get back to normal.

Whats Working Right Now with YouTube SEO

"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about what is working right now with Youtube. Seo. So just F- I just reminded for everyone youtube is still the second largest search engine in the world. Again, it's owned by Google. So Neil, what is working right now 'cause with Youtube you've got what about seven hundred thousand subscribers right now. The biggest thing that I found that works with Youtube. Seo like everyone talks about the key words you need to put the keywords in your title you need have attractive thumbnails for CTR's, and that's all the stuff that everyone's doing. It's just like traditional Seo right you know this better than anyone else everyone can modify their Meta tags everyone can create content that's ten minutes long or everyone can write two, thousand, four blog posts but the big trick that I found that really boost your ranking see youtube opposite attritional Google. Seo which traditional Google, CIO, slow, and steady wins the race in Youtube, Seo whoever does really well in the first twenty, four hours of the video being released tends to win the race and you can get your rank is literally the day you pop up the video doesn't have to take months even for competitive terms, it literally be days. The real question is, how hard can you push the video in the first twenty four hours and what I mean by that is, can you do email blasts, push notification blasts and? FACEBOOK MESSENGER blasts, text blasts, anything. You can't get views in the first twenty, four hours. If you get a lot of traction in those views watched the video, they watch other videos on Youtube Bay comment because they liked the video will find is the video starts ranking really high. Yeah. If you think about it I, mean these social media tools are all created by human beings. Right. How do these algorithms work? If you think about Lincoln if I post something Lincoln or someone's share something with me, they're always sharing with. The bunch of people want a bunch of people to like it. They want a bunch of your comment. They want a ton of engagement initially, right? That's what these algorithms looking for. They're looking for the initial rush. So you're lucky enough you're fortunate enough to have audiences across the MLS. If you have push notifications to Neil's point earlier, that's good for you. Now here's the flipside tonight. Love you might be saying, well, what have we don't have an audience while I just spoke to a guy yesterday new you should definitely check. Out This podcast I think you would enjoy it. My spoke to a guy named George Gammon very successful entrepreneur was doing like twenty four million bucks a year in the retired bought of a bunch of real estate and now moved Medellin Colombia. Now in St Bart's but points this he does a really good job of teaching macroeconomics and Learning Economics in college all I did was I went to distinct called the ECON- tutor and he just gave the answers and we all copy the answers and we went into class and We all got a beep is hilarious. My point is I didn't understand much about economics, and then now I'm realizing the current climate, you have to have a really strong understanding of macroeconomic. So this guy went, he's youtube channel. This guy's audience at all from two hundred subscribers is at one, hundred, sixty, five, thousand subscribers now he did it all organically why is he so successful? It's because his level of content nobody's doing anything like that right now nobody's breaking down macroeconomic and making it super simple. It's always like three. Simple steps, right. That's what he does is topics are really good. It's not like he has amazing headlines All the time, and then I found out from yesterday he's like, yeah, I spent about twelve hours on each food. I'm not saying you need to spend twelve hours on each video but the level of your content if you can touch upon things that are hot and explained in a simple way, it becomes very easy to share I learned of him to Robert Q sake the guy that wrote rich Dad Poor Dad. and. Boom Robert Gates money channel boom thirty five thousand subscribers instantly, right. So point is if you don't have an audience, yes, you might have to slog it out a little bit what look this guy went from two hundred to one

"Thank you rose for introducing this edition of the tennis podcast. Catherine Matt and Myself David Law are here to answer your questions today. Because it's Thursday. We wanted a podcast. We've only answered about five or six in every other previous listener questions podcasts. So we've still got loads and loads to get through plus about another hundred and fifty came in with matches putting out single tweet. So how you doing both Matt? You're fine thank you. Yes busy waiting through those questions that has been completed and we are ready to get going ready ready to rock and we'll have to rock because one of them's about entrance. Music Castro in for us to come into call wait for that one nice boilers today. I'm all right. I've worn. Put a Cardigan over over my dressing and to try and disguise the facts that I am not dressed. But it's I'm I'm looking at myself in the in the camera and I'm realizing it's it's a flimsy disguise. Isn't it fooled me? It did it. Oh okay I needn't have mentioned anything. Twenty seconds ago it's coming to say look down and everything okay so little insight there folks stuff. We didn't do. We both thought Catherine had dressed up for the occasion. But apparently this is our earliest recorded lockdown. I think it is a bit early. Isn't it Crikey ten thirty in the morning folks that doesn't exist on Catherine's clock she's have to borrow on. I write questions. We are going to get cracking immediately. Matt's what have we got first game to Sherry be on instagram. Who Asks probably in response to our pod on Monday when we some this topic. How can we make tennis more enjoyable without an audience? Pool is a big ask is probably something we should be thinking about though. Isn't it rather than I mean you know? We settled on the last that we will have reservations about tennis behind closed doors about crowd. Whatever you WANNA call it But it's a very real prospect I've done a couple of interviews in in the in the last couple of days one with Sergio Bruguera with Michael China. Be Hearing bits of the move the over the coming weeks we. We touched on lots of topics but I asked them both how they felt about tennis behind closed doors and their opinions could not have been more polarized surgey yet. I'm absolutely all four. It just bring tennis back as soon as possible. No matter what you have to do just bring it back. He he's panicked. He said bring football back. Bring tennis back. I need to watch Selena as a matter of urgency needs tennis return and when he first onto the question he was. He was definitely talking from a spectator's perspective. And I said what about what about as a player would imagine playing French. Open final with with Nike Crowds. And still he said. I don't care I don't care to bring it back. I put the same question to Michael Chang. And he said the opposite he said Noah I I just can't visit it's it's it's It's to wizards comedy get get my head around it. So there is going to be a massive divide in the tennis community. If one the first actual tool level event gets gets announced that it's going ahead you know this is GonNa be little debate flying around so we're getting in the we getting in the. I wondered if I covered a champion's tour event in two thousand and eight in Istanbul in July. It was my first one flying so lame and Istanbul in July. It was about forty five degrees. I'm not sure why they decided. That was where it should be in the calendar but anyway it was to be outside for long periods watching sports so there was just nobody in the crowd nobody whatsoever so they pumped crowd noise in and it was. It's of course it was weird but maybe it helps a little bit. I do now is like what she they've been doing. The the Graham Norton show haven't they with him from his from his house with a little sort of mini studio setup and he still does his little comedy. Bits in between guests and what he's saying is funny and he's still the same guy he's still is charming and funny as ever hearing those jokes land without any crowd response is really really painful. It puts a completely different complexion on it. I'm of finding myself a company of I'm saying this because I've spent fifteen years talking about. How candle do is the only bad thing about. I'm Alan Partridge but it makes me sort of cry out for some canned laughter. Deny what is this? What is endemic doing to me? So this is going to be like sports office style. Isn't it great? Things Happen to utter silence. And that's going to be a bit jarring all. I think there's two things one think it'll be interesting to see whether we adjust as viewers. It is a different world. Let's assume it's a different world for a long time and we just have to. Kinda of get used to it and we can't do what we used to do anymore. John macular used to fly a Concorde to London every so often he can't do that anymore yes to go on a on another planet. That's the same unknown but there are certain things that Diane Struggle Israel but it is still only sports is not so. Maybe you knew of the game. That doesn't ECON. Flippantly say at a time when we will disgust and made hot felts given heartfelt accounts of whites not just sports come on e. Can't flippantly say I wonder whether we'll find something else within the sports other than just the sound the look. I don't know I'm just. I'm wondering whether whether I will watch the sport. In different ways other senses will become more. Attuned yeah possibly may or may fall out of love with it. That's also possible. I think ultimately the fact that it isn't just sport is actually the strongest argument to bring it back without fans because it's what players need for their livelihood so if they if if there's a way to get the tour back up and running and get the economics of it back up and running without fans that is going to be more important. I think than consideration of whether fans in the stadium will not if if we're going to be able to give these players chance to play with prize money and all that kind of thing then they need to take. That opportunity is going to be weird. But we're going to have to accept that. I think I think that's more. I think that's more important consideration than whether it's a bit weird or not for

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

The Big Story

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a

Question is all around heavy brain yourself as a leader About personal leadership identity in branding. Thanks a Christian in them. You know second branding before but let's tackle this from a lot more direct results penalty ship. Let's start with what actual. What do we mean what is meant by Pestle leadership entity to me? It's a little bit unique combination of qualities and talents that making unique and different as an individual in order to enhance leadership that to me is what personal leadership identity. It's it's what are the unique qualities and talents that you have so unique qualities and talents that distinctive as an individual that tomase what a personal ladyship identities because his different types of ladyship so I did I wanted to demystify what the whole personal leadership identity mates and again say to him because it's the foundation of the rest of the fleshpots. He's at ease the combination of qualities and talents. That make you. Unique and distinctive as individuals keywords qualities and talents unique distinctive an individual and that enhances your leadership style Let me flow on that Intensive trainings ahead. You brains yourself as a leader. Well I've covered this before but I'll explore again in. The context of Of ANONYMITY ENDED UP PERSONAL LEADERSHIP. And that is the next full step. Step one explore your voice. Make sure that you have that. Inner Voice your great communicator. At whether it's one on one situations whether it's stages to a lot of people and that's a key point because a lot of people in leadership think that it's just good one on one discussions one on one communication skills all. I think it's just able to communicate too many people at once to me. Great latest what they really have that When the building a personal brand is they're able to school. The voice spoke one on one. But in a situation where it's one too many so that's one connecting east obscure yourself and then upscale your team that's what Personal you know the branding yourself as a leader is all about. That's a great strategy to have strategy number two is all about upstream yourself but also being able to US upskill attained. Because you don't want to build too much of a gap between self team so you not only going to be able to obscure be and be pestle development but you need to be a good damn good Developing your team as well number three is all about focusing on your expertise different expectations when you building attain leadership meetings that conducts. Think of yourself. You know when you're branding yourself as a leader. You'll that conduct a standing in front of the ban and you have a certain expertise to spotlight. Highlight what your expertise. But then also know what the expectation of the taints and by highlighting expertise of yourself in the team. You will ensure that you are branding. you're branding the team and again that makes you a leader in the number four. They're important is to always ask for feedback member. It was in the people business. Where the whistling product or service and it's all about connecting person to a product or service in different than when leading teams. So when you're working on the strategy to build your existing brand you have to have a brand is known to ask for feedback. Re Temperate. In order is to adopt strategies. That will help you amplify your personal brain. One explore your boys number two obscure yourself and your team number three highlight put a spotlight on your expertise and those of your teams and number four. Ask for feedback now in. What is a good personal leadership? Model well Ship is the ability to develop and utilize positive leadership traits. So you WanNa really highlight your leadership traits and then you want to guide the direction of your loss instead of letting others guard you now. That's what leadership is all about. It's the guy again coming back to the conductor. Great leaders others conductors in every conductor. You think if you research conductors of bans conduct on orchestra and you watch the videos youtube some you see that all of them have a very unique and distinctive different style. All mariah to get the band the follows to play to the bait of music and play the music that needs to happen so when not talk about leadership and leading teams by always love using the example them conductors and concert fans because everyone has different stops. I'm a more animated. Some listen but they will get the results and coming back to the beginning where we talked about uniqueness coming back to where we talked about you know focusing on different skills and they you have as an individual this is what makes you'll you'll build your personal leadership traits. What do I find the top five leadership skills and the people have someone? I've seen good leaders mid again. This is the leader of the constant pain. The leader of politics a lot of work around politics are CD's common skills. That I say that is honesty and integrity and sat dental fantasy. Always bill antic deliver bad news in pathetically but honestly and deliver good news with energy and passion and honesty. But it's always honesty integrity or fantasy number one number two inspire others. You have to have the ability as a leader to inspire everyone in the world wants. Inspirational seeks inspiration. We gotta have this tribe. It's very important if you want to build your brain as leader number three is be committed and passionate and if you're not committed and passionate things off until Quebec commitment and passion is the common denominator of resilience so if you were. The resilience is a common denominator of Gum. Commitment and passion. If you have commitment a passion you are resilient and as a leader unique to have that Resonance Nick. One is good communicator. You need to be an amazing Communica days. This is another gosh. If you can't communicate ECON late you'd go to get people to be able to march to the bait of your drum. This is something that needs to happen and number five is accountability. You need to have accountability and you need to demand can ability from your team so if you do these things these are what are fun of Obama. The skills set up the right lane is honesty and integrity. Which again is open to city number to inspire? Abbas number three commitment and resilience number four is a good communicator and number five is accountability. And I think if you look at anyone that you admire is a leader in any field whether it's sports whether it's in work whether it's easy whether Seattle whatever leave should whether it's a a Fatah great leaders people that have people followed them all have these five traits from and it's important because one of the three most important roles of leader to me. Well latest have to do different things. Depending on the year's activities we discussed because leadership is he personal bomb professional family life all asked to be ladies in different roles. Different responsibilities so that the three opinion a very common and to me. It's all about being able to envision it's all about the number correct follows and it's all about being able to execute so the three tasks of a later Matt whether it's leading at home at one co leading self is that you have to have a vision. You have to be able to get follow as to see that vision and you need to be able to and if you can do those three things combined with what I've covered in this flash costs than you will build your personal brain identity and remember that brain is what people say about you when you leave the room so if you really WanNa know what people think that your brain will think about you and I do this in in groups. It's a great exercise to. It's what people have to say that you when you leave the room. What is your your your emotional engagement your affect your impact on paper. What did I say about you when you the room? I mean a great way to look at it as eulogies. You can tell if you read people's eulogies you can tell what that personal brand of that fascinating back from the eulogy that the here but attacked people talk about them. How I relate the bathroom with I remember about what stands out about them. That actually creates the brand of that person so everybody that wants to create a brand and we all need to mush apple phone but in particular as Neal's asked in terms of leadership Minnesota important to go back makes about what we just spoke about and done an really align it to yourself. I remember that it's all about being unique. It's all about the different till about keeping it real to yourself keeping an authentic. These are the things that happen because you know we often talk about a latest night will born well to me it. Spotter you Latest can be made at any time. If there's a will so there's a will there's a way but it's all about surrounding trump with throughout paper and of course some people are naturally boom out of talents that others don't have however it's not one or the other you don't need to be born. Alita to become a leader. I think that people need to understand that leadership is all about having the ability to get people to follow you around and personal ladyship been able to really brain yourself as a leader comes down to understanding your self understanding your audience and attributing all the things that we've spoken about in this flash cast until next time gumby the Bishops Bay.

When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far

"Going Vegan Veggie. You simply eating more veggies can all be healthy lifestyle choices but if doing so gives you. Zayed he about hanging out with friends makes you fear certain foods. It can actually be quite dangerous because yes being to healthy can actually be unhealthy for some restrictive. Eating is a short live stage that ricochets into a junk food rebellion for others. They find their way back to the middle of the road. But for some money the so called healthy way of eating can become a true obsession and at its most extreme. An eating disorder known as author. Xia this week's food for thought explores when healthy becomes unhealthy with Dr Nikki Stump Surgeon TV presenter and author of pretty unhealthy. Helen Nikki. Hi Thank you for having me. Really Nice debate here per exciting. I am beyond excited. I think since receiving your book getting to read it in being completely inspired and upset fully instagram Graham Wall. And just seeing what you've been getting up to you it's a pleasure to have you in the. Uk's at thank he owner thank you. I think we'll start with whether someone who's we'll go right him. Web someone's been diagnosed with an each use solder or slightly lesser degree. All serve preoccupation of being unhealthy. One is that unhealthy the occupation of being too healthy. Yeah I think that's a really good question because I think you've kind of alluded to it. Then you in in that question that use. You're walking a fine line. It's it's It's very easy to step from one thing to something that is is not so great for you. So you know. It's reasonable to be conscious and observant. About what you ate and making sure that you're exercising not smoking and drinking and all those kinds of things that's important but then when you get really caught up in it to a point where it is impacting your mental health. Your physical health. Your social well-being forget about that. A Lot. That's why. I think we start to get into territory where you are you looking at something. That's possibly not that good for you. You'll completely right the so many factors involved. I think for anyone to just identify acknowledging themselves. I'm not quite happy right. Now is quite a big step because often people in this country. We still have a thing as what at the moment weight is often seen as such a defining health. I don't know what your thoughts are. Matt Yeah I think white is is not going anywhere as as something that people Reach full particularly In an instant to to make a judgment about their own health or somebody else's health but it's really just not that simple econ deny that in some situations in some circumstances. Some people yes. Your weight is a factor in that can be at either end as well But I think that to look at someone and say Oh look at yourself and say I'm unhealthy because of I figure on the Sky Oh That's not rise. It doesn't really have have the support that we think it does. Yeah I think so. We use Via Mind it. It's so tricky because I got a lot of clients coming in clinic saying all the doctors told me. I'm just above the BMI. Actually have any health problems yeah so I mean BMI. I think is rightly criticised and analyze. And I think that if you're applying it to an individual it's a tool that has very little use if you're applying it to screen someone so looking for problem if you're applying it to perhaps population level or re as a research tool that has validity. But you know I think one of the things that people don't always understand about science and research and medicine and so on and so forth is that you know our tools always in perfect and one of the things that makes perfect is the way that we use them. So if we use be my willy nilly then yeah it's not. It wasn't designed for If we use it to look at an individual in front of us and decide if they're healthy that's wrong but if you're using it for the things that's been designed for it has some Information giving capability. And that's where we need to be using it I completely agree. It's just a wider understanding because things can be taken so literally all the time. Want to believe in one number having the solution or absolutely everything without simple you can be over way to be very fit. Yeah absolutely I you know. One of the things that is important in your health is not necessarily that defined. Yes Oh no I'm I'm above or below a number It's actually what you do and we know in particularly for women that no mash. They're they're they're white so their their body composition that if they live a healthy lifestyles in they take all the boxes for nutrition darn smart etcetera that they have a very significant health benefit. So I I'm I've really moved away from from that kind of thinking that you know. We have to get you to a low beam. I will take into account solely secretly with my patients. I'm very focused on what they're doing. Now I'm just trying to get them to to be. Active for example is is just one simple thing that's so refreshing into comfortable adult as well because this is something that unfortunately we see such a lot of this country because medics in this country. Don't get enough nutritional education. Yeah lifestyle education and to hear you say that is wonderful. Yeah even with that in mind. I'm just one piece of the puzzle. You know so if I identify that someone Is is needing some help. With what eat or exercise you reach for your for your experts. Now I'm sure like like the NHL. We're pretty eater stretched with results. So you know. It's not always easy to do that. And I. I think that doctors should be able to give out the basics just like You know my allied health colleagues give out the basics of what I do as well you know. We all work in this together by. I think it is time to to sort of change up our thinking and the way we give advice across the board. Yeah completely. I think is often a misconception. As well that it's all about overeating Ashley. You can be overweight and be quite malnourished as well. Connie that for me. I don't think people realize no and I think the way to to look at this is to Magin if you are overweight and you your diet consists less assay solely of takeout food so that that's all you rating by doing that by eating that very Calorie dense food You are unfortunately missing out on a lot of nutrients So for example you know are based on our. That's a word that is very loaded by mere medically speaking someone who paps has a extra white in the medical complications of it they can be still lacking in in Macronutrients. They can still be lacking micronutrients. you know so. It's not that straightforward to say to say that all that they're very well nourished nor that actually might not be exactly. You can be both ends of the spectrum I said and be completely malnourished. Do you see this getting worse and Western society off. I mean that's sort of what the data suggests you know so if you look at you know. Uk Australia us now. We're all fairly on power. We have pretty similar Spectrum of issues I think health issues and outside of the sphere of food and weight and so on and so forth with pretty similar and I. I do think that that it is the all of these things are increasing And then not just about US eating too much You know all of these choices that we might happen in a system. That is designed to make eight to macho exercise too little. I mean near tobacco. Advertising is literally designed to get. You know it's you know we're not we're not failing ourselves we are filed by system at lodge.

IBM CLOUD WAS Has Been and continues to be instrumental in sort of invisibly in the background, keeping the infrastructure, alive and one of the things about that. I'll tell you a quick story on it. That was super impressive to me and I see this. These kinds of washes fairly often without products. But as we launch on Monday night. What I was not used to seeing was security Automatically being implemented, and so what I mean by that is, we were actually having a denial of service attack, so hackers trying to hack into whether dot com, as we were launching the site, and because of the security elements of the IBM cloud. It didn't stop I signed team show. We stopped likenesses. The seems like a really big deal..

How to produce your own webinar with Glen Aspeslagh

"My guess is a CO founder of the popular all in one lie shooting production platform e Cam live. Please welcome Glen Asper slay. Hello Glen Haven Alley. How's it going? Oh super good now. Here's what's kind of funny is thank you so much for appearing on the show in such short notice I was actually working with the CAM. Live and I making do things that I'm sure you really didn't think of it to be designed for now going from a Mac to a PC I just I literally just push. This thing passed its limit. The maximum is not as powerful. Your tech support is absolutely phenomenal. I shot I shot them a message on a chat and within like ten minutes later they said. Just tell me what you want to accomplish. I wrote down. Here's the answer and within I'd probably say thirty minutes I had a perfect answer and a solution and I called my producer to tell them how exciting that was that often that we have down so anyways I very very excited and for those of you. That are listening. I'm sure a lot of you've watched our webinars on focus and even on Sky Lem and were using e Cam live and a lot of listeners. Been asking us. You know what platform using so who better to answer all of our questions that the CO founder Glen. You actually program too. Don't you Y- Is a small operation. Really my brother and I founded it My brother Ken and I are just Mack guys since birth and Matt Programmers. Ever since we were you know I guess ten years old. Wow so it it. It's like It's just our thing we've always done. We've always done software and we've been doing MAC software fulltime for. I guess ten years now. I loved your interaction with each other when you did the when. He launched the new versions. And you had a you guys got together you did. You did a little interaction I can tell you two brothers nothing I mean we we we love. We love doing that because we used to do. We do live on a cable. Show back when you know. Towns have public access cable studios so wondering when we were in high school we would do a show so you know twenty five years later when our marketing team wanted us to go actually go on camera we were like? Hey you know this is like old times. So so. Who's the older brother? Who's the older? You were a key candidates five minutes older. Oser your wanted twins but he always he always will deadpan. You Know No. We're the same age. That's what twins me someone asks. Well well I'm the youngest of six children in a in a very strong Italian Catholic family. So you can guess all the pranks and stuff were were taken out on. Me's the youngest child of that's awesome. We we love being on camera together when we love. We love this Having all these these numbers in and having a product that is just sorta center centered around. Social media is is just so much fun. Because it's it. It's not just the software in the coding and the technical things We just having a lot of fun. You know building a community and in doing videos and and making content. There's this the whole hoping of suspense such a blast. Great let's get to our topics and Topic is how to produce your own Webinar or stream live to facebook and to youtube and different platforms So what what was the purpose of designing e Cam live pretty excited about live streaming. When it first started to when facebook spurs started to promote their facebook product. We saw this as an opportunity to make a really user friendly Mac out to do live streaming and remember. I said Mac out because we don't do windows APPS We'RE NOT DOING. Iphone is tied right now. This is only on the map and we thought we had this background in audio and visual software. We can make this really slick easy to use APP. That just works really well and does one thing and does it well and that was what we wanted to tackle was this idea of of of live streaming really now a lot about live streaming gumming in like a really really cool thing to do. Well you guys definitely nailed it not ballpark So what are we talked about? Some of the features of Kim live now from my perspective. I can see from a designing phase. It's really simple to use. How did you guys come up with that? We wanted to do this. Sort of what you see is what you get interface. You know what I mean like when you go into can live you see. The main window is just an image of you of you. You know you whatever you see on that man windows exactly what your audience is. GonNa see so. That was the first thing we wanted to approach. We also wanted to have it really tightly integrated with facebook and in and then afterwards we added Youtube. It was originally thought of as a facebook product where with live streaming. I'm sure you're familiar with the concept. The best stream key and what a bit rate is and what you know. Resolutions and stuff. We wanted to sort of abstract that really sort of apple style. You know what I mean and say like we don't want people that need to notice Jim he is or what their bit rate is. We want to ask them questions like like that. We just want us to have a big blue button after you log in the facebook and you can go live on. You definitely definitely accomplished. I came from. I'm trying to think of the the platform now. It's a free software. I had a tip of my tongue. I lost it but so for three. One opiates Oh bs thank you. Yes yes yes. It's yes it's great but again like you just said you have to know your stream key. You have to know a lot of the stuff behind the scenes and that's just a little complicated and once you get the hang of it. It was fine but it looked to me like you took no. Bs Concept and just laid beautiful interface on top of it and said you don't need to know any of this other stuff. Click here if you WANNA go live. Click here if you want to just practice and publish it to yourself. So you know there was a lot of neat things. I've noticed for ease of use the way it was designed that that was a that was a big focus and then but then. I you know it started out really simple. The core feature is going live to facebook. Rolling prerecorded videos adding overlays and And screen sharing so those were the core features and then. Ironically you know when we started you know building a user base week people were were asking for features like crazy and we decided you know. Let's have some fun start having let's try and keep it really simple. You know not not make it into this big overwhelming. Why are cast or obese or something like that keep the interface really simple and yet still make it more and more powerful so now three years later it is has grown into this sort of full featured live streaming studio in. Our hope is that it's still. It's still easy to use and we didn't intimidate anyone no but multiple cameras which I thought was fascinating. I like the idea. You've ever boat gas via skype. So and I know we're using the software where we're using it more like a Webinar base. Where I'm teaching and I know you said in the beginning you ought to use it. So people can show demos and show to Tourelles I'm finding able to use it as a production to where I can't have. A couple of guests would be live from all over the country and they could share their demos so I switched to somebody like Abbas Shapiro. And so you know it's your turn. Show us what you would do with this image and Aiba takes over the screen and now all of us are watching his demo and then control come back to me and that I could switch it off to another person now. Was that stuff that you thought about the beginning or it just evolved into it. That kind of Kennedy came along a just kind of a bald The integration with SKYPE IS NEAT. Because it's it's it's not really it's not a hack at all skype. Has this concept of sending out the video sources of over the over an MD. I connection so we can tie that. They're Li seamlessly and like you said if if someone else's remote and they wanNA share their screen over skype that comes into ECON lab just like a camera. So you know you you plug a camera in Birmingham live at shows. Up this medically the same thing happens for a skype guest orest Guest sharing their screen so while there are kind of moving parts to the setup of doing Escape production once you have it all set at. Its It's pretty seamless and easy to switch around and punt and split screens and determine what we've what you want to be on the screen at any given time

Market panic after coronavirus spending stimulus packages

"As crown avars cases Roy's across the country and industry shuts down hundreds of thousands of people. Losing jobs and businesses across the country lay going broke so is government spending enough or too much and how long can the Australian economy survive before we keep into irreparable damage? Are WE AS POOR. Kili asks in the Australian newspaper This Week. We burning the village to save it. Daniel would is budget policy and institutional reform program director at the Graduate Institute. And she's the incoming chief executive officer of the Graduate Institute and Salmon. Cowan is the research director at the Center for Independence Studies at Sydney. Think tank that I had up Danielle Salmon. Welcome both of you. Thank you come now. Danielle the in response to the government's big spending stimulus packages those a seventeen billion dollar package about a fortnight ago. Then another six billion dollar one earlier this week in response the markets panicked a full stampede trends indicate that the markets will continue their stampede lock fraught and capital is all this government largess justified. Look I think it is absolutely justified when you look at the style of health challenge. And what the government's trying to do to keep that contained in terms of effectively shutting down pretty significant sectors of our economy You know the hospitality industry is gone. anything that relies on social consumption so a lot of businesses headdresses petitions. The canucks very significant swipe at the economy. And so we need this government package in order to support the businesses during what is going to be a very shop. It comes down to it. Jonathan Freedland in the Guardian this week Sam and he says just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship. There are no free marketeers independent so manure relating free-market t doesn't this unprecedented cross justify unprecedented measures such as much bigger government. Well you've wrought remind frame rocketeer evening across as so. I guess that's a positive spun for from Mor perspective. I think there's an important distinction that we need to make I here. Which is the audio of stimulus as opposed to the broader concept of what government support government action in a pandemic? Cannon should be so the idea that what the government can or should do his prop up. Economic growth is in the short term. Which is what stimulus is. I think that that's a very mistaken idea. It's a mistake and concert. Not The least of which because what? We're actually trying to do here is Danielle roughtly. Daddy shutdown pots economy for health rights. So the the issue here is not so much. A case of should the government being involved in short term stimulus. It's what sort of support package. Should we give to cushion some economic impacts of this crisis in? What should we do on a health perspective? Now of an expert on the hill saw things. That's where the government's getting its health advice from an economic perspective. I think it's important to realize that we cannot prop every business in in the country. You know Macaroni France. Basically said we won't let a single business go bankrupt. That would be a stike. We're looking at a potentially protracted shut down in the economy with significant economic impacts. And we need to be smart in strategic about how we deploy our resources. The government doesn't have an unlimited budget. Econ prop up. Everyone and it shouldn't try and provide support to everyone. What it needs to do is target. It's assistance to the areas most in need to the people most in need and ensuring that when we come out the other side of this whereas applies to as we can be to get coming out on the other side of this means massive deficits as far as the. I can see and that would imply a substantial future tax increase crosses. Maybe as soon as next she wouldn't that retired the recovery. Daniel look really depends on how quickly you try to pay down the debt. And you're absolutely right when we will be wrecking up a substantial amount of with these reforms. There's absolutely no question about that So essentially we are asking future generations to pay for this response but given the importance of supporting business through this and I do agree with him. We will not say every business here. But we absolutely need to avoid. Is You know what will be preheated to economics and the economy becoming a permanent one if we lose a lot of productive capacity and the economy that has got to be the priority. Right now yes it waiting for that we go substantial debt to pay off the government will hopefully find a path to do that in a way that will not hit the the economy is coming out of the what happens if the pandemic lasts into the winter and early. Spring Salmon Cowan that the CLEM will be for another round and then another round of high levels of government spending. Is that really sustainable? Well it's an interesting question Australia's coming into these spots. A lot of people were not an is good spot as wearing two thousand night. But we're not coming into these crosses with government dead at one hundred percent of Jj pay a lot of the countries in Europe. The challenge I think here is and what the government You know it's difficult for the government to do this because it's been so reactive in such a short period of tall it but it is. How can we draw on the resources of society? More broadly so that we don't put the entire burden for these onto future generations. You know if you sort of think of it in these terms Government has its role to apply. It will take its level of debt individuals who have resources businesses who have resources we should encourage them to access those resources as well One good example. These we have caught a good deal of money in superannuation that could be used to support people in the short term. It's not going to be a complete substitute for an expanded welfare system in this cross but it could take some of the pressure off the system at a point in time where we don't know how long this will last Danielle. The government did announce that would allow Australians to access a superannuation. What's your position on that yet? Look wait we think unbalanced the good idea and clearly difficult decision for individuals to make to to draw down on the sweeper particularly the time when we hear the knock. It's onto forming. Particularly well sited the value of their investment might not be what they were but in a world in which the government is offering generous safety net but for many people that will not be enough if I have lost their jobs to keep up with their bills So we think allowing people to tap into those saving given the extraordinarily nightshirt. These crosses is a good idea to help people get

Skin Congestion 101

"Is basically just clocked polls so when you have congestion it basically just looks like He. Skin isn't spotty. There's no real blemishes. It just doesn't look like porcelain fresh like when I've got no make pawn. My skin does not look perfect. And when you've got no make upon your skin is like and smooth remember. That picture of jody came on. I'll store squadra is completely clear on congested skin. See when you said to me about congestion before overlooking ox off say something. I've never really had to do when I kind of pictured like blotchy blemish you. Yes Oh today ready fe. Yeah not really. The case is a no so The long and short is that it is a cloaked poll book. The only issue is a few. If it's not a SPA ECON squeeze in trying. Get rid of it. You can't talk directly As you would a spa or acne which is really irritated but there are quite a few things you can do which will go into later. That can help it. And if you're wondering whether you have Congested skin one way of looking at is to see if even if you've got no spots if it still doesn't look perfectly clear but also if you run your hand lovie skin it generally feels a little bit bumpy I know your skin soup. Soft CEOS probably just feels kind of I do have some bomb you know in like areas that are known by the side of your your ears and stuff like jewel. Yeah so I find. My condition is worse kind of like along my cheekbones and like just under my cheekbones and a new one my acne was really bad When I was younger that was where it was the worst and obviously I've got while I have a little bit scarring that now but I think those polls. Quite prone to being congested. Don't really get it on my forehead or get much in a little bit But Yeah I'm quite happy that I finally figured out that such congestion as of with rather than anything else So I mean we're talking on two different ends of the spectrum here Book I mean as in with you and I will like you said Yousef was conditioned sometimes as well so it's probably handy for any skin type to know what congestion might look

World Health Organization holds press conference on coronavirus outbreak

"World Health Organization has been meeting to coordinate international responses containing and combating the novell corona virus outbreak scientists. From all over. The world attended the Congress in Geneva this week but will there. There is consensus on the fact that science must lead the fight back. Diplomacy may yet get in the way. China analyst Isabel Hilton Who's editor of China. Dialogue joins me now to look at the detail of the story. Thanks for coming in Isabel. This row concerns Taiwan the island that the Chinese Communist Party seizes part of one China under Beijing's authority but officials in Taipei claims self-ruled democracy. And that of course is the heart of the problem it is and you know and the other part of the background. Is it for several years now. China has been building position in the United Nations and all its agencies and steadily chipping away at those Relatively typically small but symbolic countries that recognize Taiwan as an independent country sir. Taiwan got booted off the Security Council missile when when Back in the seventies when China entered this global diplomatic sphere now when it comes to the W. H. O.. This of course really really matters. Because you're dealing with a with an epidemic which affects Taiwan and the same thing happened with saws Taiwan when ruled by the Gorman in dengue which was originally a mainland party and loser in the Chinese civil war until nineteen forty nine when it went Taiwan occupied Taiwan one. When Gorman Dong is in Barron Taiwan then China relaxes its position in terms of Taiwan's participation in these bodies because the Gorman Don Also regards Taiwan as an integral part of China students the DP which is the Taiwanese part he gets elected. Beijing becomes much on hostile and starts starts to exclude Taiwan from this kind of participation. So in this epidemic for example the W. T. the WHO has classified assefy. Taiwan is part of China. Which means that it was subject to all the travel bans that China was subject to despite the fact that it had you know just to score of cases cases where China has thirty thousand currently And so it. It began to suffer from the same kind of exclusions without having access to the scientific typic- and medical exchanges that it would have needed. It does need In order to control infection. So it's a very very a bitter angry exchanges over this. Now there are internal ructions within China to the Chinese doctor who was silenced by police. Trying to share news about the virus long before the Chinese health authorities disclosed. It's full threat. died yesterday. Many including China's judicial title authorities have wondered whether the epidemic could have unfolded differently. Had He not been silenced that critical juncture ahead of the lunar year holiday. How rare is is it for the judiciary to rebuke? The police. Always seeing now major internal ructions. Well what you're seeing. Is everybody looking for someone else to blame. Because this man became I'm a hero quite rightly he was early on the case he was humiliated in called into the police. May disci- offer confessions saying let you know none of it's true. He then continues his his work gets infected alive social media feed then set up outside the hospital because he'd become known by by then hundreds of millions of people were following his condition as he got ill he was. He continued to give interviews from isolation so he became a complete eight national hero. The symbolic you know upright official. Who Speaks Truth to power and evil power suppresses now that is the narrative that's taken hold and that is very dangerous for China just to go back to the W. H. O. The? Who's pronouncements of Kitty. Kind of been coerced by China because W. H. O.. Director General WHO's an Ethiopian. The country heavily dependent on on on China. has has given extraordinary praise to the Chinese authorities for the speed be do their response in the scale of their response. He's pretty much alone in that judgment because it's quite clear that for the first four weeks the Wuhan authorities suppressed press the news so that they could carry on with activities being planned which included a massive banquet for forty thousand people in in the middle of you know when they epidemic was well underway and the WHO changed its its statement on human to human transmission. which is a key element element that Chinese authorities said at the beginning of this? There's no evidence of human to human transition which meet transmission. which meant that? You had to go to that wet market in order to catch. Gotcha this would evidently Andrew that. Who fell into line with the Chinese government on that. This huge party went ahead and the whole thing out of control where wait still is. It's out of control now. The the head of the. Who actually has form on this. I know that in the past. He has supported African dictators. And so on and in fact I'd like like to turn to Africa now because the fifty four countries collectively are home to one point two billion people of whom an estimated one million Chinese nationals. And yet so far when you see the map and it's all lit up about where there is a corona virus in the world. Africa is completely blank. There are no reported cases of it whatsoever with such large Chinese population. There I find it extremely difficult to believe Richie implausible and no reported cases is the key doesn't mean there are no kisses and and you know there. Is this concern that that a China can lock down the country every now for how long but you you know. China is everywhere. And because there's been so much movement because people want prevented from travelling Before the declaration of the emergency it means that almost anywhere where where Chinese have been coming going. You have a risk of of this of this taking hold in countries where there there were. Public Health is is is not up to dealing with a highly transmissible Disease so you you know. Pakistan is another case in point. Where where you have serious concerns very close relationship? Lots of Chinese coming and going and this this could be the next phase uh-huh and I mean we're we're looking at some African countries repatriating citizens others making a big show saying that they won't and that they have complete faith in the Chinese government. So once again you've got this kind of diplomatic failure going on and these countries accosted or not repatriation. Their citizens are the ones that can't afford to well absolutely can't get a plane they know or whatever but once again you're seeing China going global with its own internal approach which is essentially to suppress the news. You know it's it's it's in control of of public all as they would put guiding public opinion as being a key element in in the party's strategy politically to survive five. Of course it. Has You know rather bad effect on. Its its ability to manage the substantive issue which is how many people get sick and die in some areas of the world the virus also seems to be tapping into racist sentiment with Chinese people who may not have visited the country in years. If ever been criticized there was a horrible. The story coming out of Wales yesterday. Some children of Chinese heritage were prevented from going to school. And I think that's now being reversed but but this is a trend. We are seeing we are hosting it and we've seen a lamentable cases in Italy there was a conservatoire that that put up a notice saying it had suspended classes for quote quote Unquote Oriental Students. And these are people who are living in Italy however you should also look China because if you remember it. Five million people have Wuhan the week before the Chinese authorities admitted water crisis. Was this dock. They can't get back to hunt Khan and they are in places in China which treating them. Even worse had been cases where apartments it'd be nailed up to stop people from Hahn going out. They can't they can't find hotel rooms. They are being shunned and ostracized within China and they are completely in limbo because they can't travel econ get back home and they're very very unwelcome. Welcome where they are and very unwell. Some of the some of them may well be unwell but certainly the regarded as going to play Mary's wherever they go. And that's you know And the next phase as if this does it to incubate period so given that people did so many people did leave the area in advance at the little holiday I think that would the next phase in China will be to see a surge in infections in those provinces where people have visited and of course. There's a much wider panic. We're seeing shortages. The face masks globally in Hong Kong. I understand toilet paper now competitive bizarre. What quite why toilet paper that connects to kind previous story about science and not knowing where to buy toilet paper because she was so looked after by seventy seven so I think that may be more to do with politics of of Hong Kong than real showed his but I wonder how the authorities can best manage? What's not only a health crisis but also one then of of misinformation under fear and discrimination it's unfortunately that I think that horses bolted? You know there are there are kind of well. Established practices practises where you have an emergency. Be It a natural disaster or an epidemic and it's very important to establish trust with the public excited the public and have listened to you does what's necessary and it's extremely important. Basically it says you must be a very quick week in in terms of of distributing information and that information must be accurate and you must be responsive China. The party is already. He's at every level. Have broken those rules so trust has gone the public does not believe them. They're being caused as the villains in this Inside China and certainly in Hong Kong and in Taiwan and. I think it's going to be very very difficult for the authorities to to recover from that and what they're doing now is simply going back to repressing the news again. It's not going to work Isabel. Thank you very much indeed. That was Isabel Hilton. Still to come on the program. While Jerry is pardoning pardoning prisoners a flick through the papers plus subas

Predicting the 2020 Oscars The Big Picture

"The time has come to predict the Ninety First Academy Awards. Amanda how are you feeling about this. I feel terrible as always I just. It's being wrong in public. It's my number one least least favorite thing. It's even worse than being wrong in private. We will closely tally. All of your failures on Oscar night. Because I'll be tweeting at you directly every time you get a choice wrong and then we'll also be rehashing. Those wrong choices here on the big picture live immediately. After the telecast which. I'm really excited about on Sunday night but before that we do you have to We have to pay it to the prediction. Gods and we're GonNa go through all twenty four categories here. Yes we are now. I'd like to preface that by saying as I worm my way through the back nine of illness. My voice may go at any moment here. In which case you're GONNA have to really carry the load cliff booth style okay. I was going to say that. That's just a good summation of Oscar season and at some point to talk myself out and officer does flailing filing in the dark possibly in silence. We're we're we're just trying to get to the finish line. I am hopeful that this will not be an immensely boring. podcast about predicting the Oscars because the Oscars may be boring. I will say this is by far far the easiest year in the history of my life predicting these awards okay. You know what. It's nice that you have confidence does not this and in life. Yes it is now that means okay. That means I couldn't logically see making any other choice that doesn't mean I feel that I am right okay about I guess I feel feel the same way. There were more categories that I could kind of fill in but I there are still so many to get wrong. It's just an opportunity to get things wrong. I can't had over emphasized how much I hate that. Feeling when you would finish an exam in ninth grade at the end of it when you and your classmates your little amend etes would would gather route and chat at the at the cafeteria table would you say. Would you be the person who would say. Oh my God I failed so bad. I didn't know anything. I failed. No okay okay no because I find that obnoxious and also because I had to have like my personal confidence that I was still going to defeat all of them. Were you sitting alone like a sociopath at the cafeteria table. No okay. I had some friends but I don't know we just talked about cross country or something. Well that sounds riveting okay. Let's go back to the Academy Awards. which which is the reason for this podcast? We're GONNA start at the beginning and at the place that we sort of blasphemed earlier on the show which is with shorts. I thought we were respectful. I I want people to go back. And listen and hear what we were saying which is not that they should be cut from the show and not that shorts aren't deserving but it is a different French exercise and I just think the it was interesting to try to get into the mind of what these winners would be because I think you're evaluating on different terms because it's a different type of film so let's just make a separate thing for the shorts and let everybody have their moment philosophically I agree. It's one of the few things about the sort of workaday nature of the Oscars that you and I ultimately agree on. There are three different categories for the shorts. There is best documentary short subject. Best Live Action Short film and Best Animated. We'll start with best documentary short subject. A very few people have seen these movies. I've seen some of them. I'm not going to pretend like I've seen all fifteen. Nominees Germany's shorts category. I just haven't I haven't had the time and I'm a bad person. I have had her but I have seen some of them I've seen some of them as well feel solid about. My choices will run through the the nominees for this first category in the absence by using John and Gary Byung Cam learning to skateboard in a war zone by Carol dicing her life overtakes me by Christine Samuelson. And John. Hatice Saint Louis Superman by Sri Mantra and sign ECON and walk run cha-cha by Lord. I think the overwhelming favorite favored in categories learning to skateboard in a war zone. As my pick that is awesome attack we can move on directly from there. Okay well I just don't think we should really make an attempt to talk about the quality control of these categories stories because we're just not the experts if you expertise are actually a ton of great pieces. I was reading some stuff on wire this week. About which of these shorts are serving which are not. There's a lot of great writing about the shorts. We respect the filmmakers acres. who made the shorts? It's not Medi Best Live Action Short Film Brotherhood by Mariam. Jabbour Nafta football club by the neighbors burs wooden window by Marshall Curry Saria by Bryan Buckley or sister by Delfin Gerard. I'm going with the neighbors Wendo. I want with Brotherhood. Okay that is the that's the oddsmakers favorite Brotherhood is. Yes yes so do you. Is there a reason why you you may may change. Because the neighbor's window is is the oddsmakers like upset favorite. What is that called? When it's the there's a favorite and then the underdog I guess so spoiler well in a group of five I was wondering anyway? It's number two and I think it's been in the conversation it's and it is accessible and and I just really do feel like especially people who are voting on these are sometimes just clicking through and being like oh I guess like this one I like to football club too and I feel like that has a chance I wouldn't wouldn't rule that out yet We'll have to wait and see. The oddsmakers are usually right in the shorts categories but it can't be guaranteed because these are highly unpredictable predictable because unlike a lot of the other words. We'll talk about here. There are not a lot of guild awards that predict these words. This is really the only three categories in which we have no no data to present ahead of what you know sort of what is leading the race. What is leading the charge? So we're flying blind quite a bit. which part of the reason why we're not gonNA spend too much time analyzing final category Gorriak shorts animated short To Sarah by Doria Kusturica hair. Love Matthew. Cherry Kit Bowl by Rosanna Sullivan memorable memorable by Bruno. Colette sister by CK Song Hair. Love is far and away. The favourite yes in this category. Matthew Cherry is very active twitter user. A lot of people know oh him used to work for Jordan Peele and monkey productions is a very short. I will be surprised this one out of all three. I would be the most surprised if it didn't win. I also picked love and it made me cry and under four minutes very effective I two can respond to animated films. Wow Yeah Erica. An incredible transition to our next category best animated animated feature the nominees are how to train your dragon the hidden world. I lost my body clause missing link and toy story for what did you go with. This was a last minute change and I. I don't know whether I should admit this. And the podcast bobby. Cut this if I'm breaking a Balazs but I haven't been advising a close best friend of mine on possible bets possible upsets and close friend. Yeah no it's it's a friend. The you know a friend who listens to the podcast and identified this category. I did go toy story for because I'm trying not to over. Think things but it does seem like it seems like there could be several no spoilers. Actually there's a lot of arrows pointing at clause right now. Yeah clause just won a BAFTA clause one Annie Award Clauses clearly admired tired. Mommy animating filmmaking community I don't WanNa Toy Story. Movies went to movies. Come out. That was kind of my reasoning toy story. Three was nominated for best picture which feels like a thousand years ago but this is truly one of the most storied movie franchises ever. This sounds like a silly thing to say about a toy story movie but it is a fact there have and four films are hugely successful. The characters are beloved ingrained in popular culture. And I genuinely think toy story. Four is very very very good animated film and might might mark the end of a certain period of Pixar because not just the machinations that have happened over the years with Disney but obviously all of the sort of incredibly fraught stuff. That's happened with John. LASSETER over the years in the development stage for these movies. It's just if you look at the Pixar movies that are coming There are a lot of new properties and there are a lot of new voices that are getting to make those movies toy story. Four is old school tried and true early. Two Thousand Steve Jobs Era Pixar. That's where it comes from and and I think they're going to recognize that we could be wrong. We're GONNA find out we're both going to a story for best documentary feature the nominees. Are American factory. The Cave you've the edge of democracy foursome and honey land. What did you choose? I chose American factory as that. I'm not feeling confident. I'm not either but I wanted to die on this hill because I love this film. We gave this film best picture we really did Alternate Oscars about that this morning and I was so happy. What a lovely little title space? That was where we just got to talk about the things we liked terrifically. Well made movie. I think All of the movies in this category are are well-made. I shouldn't be surprised by how overwhelmingly serious every film is in this category every year and how issues oriented a lot of these films are it's been interesting to see. I thought when the nominations were announced honeywood play spoiler spoiler the fact that it has representation in this category and also in the next category. We're GONNA talk about. It's just unusual. That's never happened before. And so that shows a lot of support for that movie. I thought that would play spoiler over the last couple of months. Foam seems to be gaining steam for some just one at the Baptist over the weekend. We'll have to wait and see my my choices also American factory. This is part of what I mean here about saying. This was an easy choice to make because it seems like a logical choice. It's an American story. Also International Scott Got Barack Obama's thumbprint on it which I think is key weirdly meaningful. You know we. We never talked about Kobe. Bryant's passing on the show and I don't think there's a ton of reason to but obviously. Kobe was an Oscar winner. And you know some people love his film but it was a lot easier to understand his film in the purposes of his film that won best animated short. I think it's called your basketball because this was connected to Kobe. Bryant and I think people will actually look at American factory and think of Barack Obama and correlate in the same way like that is how this business works in many ways. So I'm going American factory if you told me Any of these films were GonNa win. I genuinely would not be suppressed. Don't don't bet on this category advice this category also just the nominations itself were a bit of surprise is because Apollo eleven which had been so dominant at so many awards coming up to the nominations is not included. One Nation was also in the mix and is not included so it could go a lot of different ways and I guess my strategy throughout is has been to play it safe to go with the most obvious choice and that's important because it's been like a pretty obvious yes award season thus far but we could easily be wrong. The Oscars always has a couple of surprises as it always does now. I would prefer if those surprises happened in some of the later categories and then some of the earlier categories for the sake of national entry but in all likelihood this year they're going to come in categories like this let's go to best international feature a category will not have any surprises whatsoever. The five nominees are Corpus. Christi Honey Land Les Miserables Painting Glory Parasite Yes parasite will win this award. Award parasite is a winner. This is the not the last time. We'll talk about parasite on this podcast. We can continue to go forward great visual effects. This is the category that I like to call. Sean doesn't know anything I think I get this wrong every year. That's because you always pick marvel movies and they've never WANNA love moral. Yeah congratulations not not Without some questioning questions some of their choices and frankly their visual effects are sometimes not. I've never good

"Concern about the corona virus could alter the outlook that some big companies. I'm David Brancaccio in New York known infections from the Corona one of Iris in China reached forty five hundred a sixty percent increase in a day now. Hong Kong is putting strict limits on travel to and from the mainland more than one hundred died in China the US said yesterday people in the US should quote reconsider travel to China where more than one hundred people have died from the disease. More big-name international companies today are releasing their quarterly results and outlooks for this year and some of those forecasts are being altered by concern about the virus. Today we'll hear from starbucks are bucks apple and three m here's marketplace's Kristen Schwab for American companies doing business in China Nick Satyam with wedbush securities. Says there's nothing to do for now but wait. There's nothing in terms of the business outlook that really. They can change They're just GonNa have to absorb the impact on says that might eat into profits in the short term but it could also give the brand a chance to build goodwill in its second largest market by showing Chinese customers at cares about employees. And I think they're gonNA come out of this stronger. Apple has other concerns frank. Gillette forced her says for now the company is probably most worried about its supply chain if a factory pauses for a couple of days. That's a couple of days that airplanes aren't carrying supplies to the United States. If factories are forced to shutdown apple may have to move some of its production elsewhere but again analyst it would take months for most companies profits to be affected and one company that may be seeing an immediate impact. Three M one of the world's biggest makers of facemasks. I'M KRISTEN TRAUB for marketplace checking checking markets after the Dow fell four hundred fifty three points or one point six percent yesterday amid concern about the effects of the virus on the global economy The dow feature this morning up fifty eight points two-tenths percent markets in Hong Kong and Shanghai remained closed for the Lunar New Year holiday. Crude oil has been slumping with the new concern about global growth. If it is down another five tenths percent of New York to fifty to eighty eight a barrel and when I talked to students I get asked for pro tips. What do I know but I say show up on time? Shower occasionally learn mandarin or another language and I would like to now add take econ one zero one because understanding how the money game is played can tell you a lot about human behavior savior and why the world runs this way which brings us to our new project that we're calling ECON extra credit to kick it off. How about some light? Reading and International National Group of professors has put together a free intro. Economics Textbook Looks Pretty readable. The twelve pretty slim chapters. Don't look that scary. And it has updated topics six woven including inequality and climate change in the interests of self improvement. I am going to read it. But here's my proposal since it's free. Why don't you read it along with me chapter a week by April we can all be done home? Zarghami is an economics professor at Barnard College in New Yorker uses that text in her class. It's called Economy Konami Society and public policy professor. Thank you for joining us. My pleasure other than the price of this thing is right three. Why do you use this text text in your class in the United States? It's the case that something. Like forty percent of university students end up taking at least one economics class so this is a huge Huge number of people and most of those the vast majority of those don't end up taking anymore economics courses says where you might actually get into more nuanced understandings of the of the economy. So what they did was to basically say all right. Let's pull students as to what they think. The most important things that economists should be teaching students are inequality is the number one biggest issue next after that comes the climate change the environment automisation the future of work etcetera. None of these really get touched in intro textbooks. How did the students react to this? I mean you you were taught out of the other kind of tax. This is this new fangled way of approaching. It does this real world example based way of talking about a lot. All of the stuff worked for people. My experience with my students has been that they actually read it that I cannot say was the case in in the past. They're surprised by a lot of the emphasis on for example inequality on Game Theory Game Theory is actually actually the piece. That they're most surprised by like a bluffed my way through explaining what Game Theory is but I haven't read that chapter yet in this text. Give me a sense. What is it game? Theory is the main model used to analyze social interactions in economics so the interaction of one agent. With another case where you're not interacting with someone else is where you're just kind of trying to optimize for yourself. What should I have for lunch today? How many Hours should I work etc.. What do I do when I have to take into consideration? How what I do is going to impact somebody else? And how what they're gonNa do is going to impact act me. Where would you say? This shareware text lies when it comes to political ideology. I mean I'm not seeing Mr Free Markets Adam Mhm Smith treated as either a god or villain from my early reading here right. I think it's fairly ecumenical. I think that it is is much more descriptive of all the pieces of the economy than any previous taxed professor Hamas Origami teaches economics at Barnard. Has we read along in this Free Electron Econ one zero one textbook. Doctors organize going to maybe do some office hours from time to time with us. Thank you very much my pleasure. Thank you Zarghami advises the nonprofit Prophet called core. ECON that publishes that open source book on using the curriculum in. US colleges join me for marketplace's ECON extra credit as we look into what economics onomic can.
