The Pneumonia Outbreak in China: Don't Panic Just Yet
"In the morning? Don't believe the first media narrative. I bring up the Bongino rule because there's an outbreak of a new disease in China. What? Yes! And I want everyone to please up front and center. I know you all get it. I don't mean this in any kind of a condescending way. But I just want everyone to just chill on this thing for a minute. There's a reason. Do not trust anything the media says on this thing. Anything. Talk about it. Digest the stories. But I want you to read them. And I want you to read them with my Dipsy -Doo -Flip -A -Roo theory. That anything they say, you should probably believe the opposite. The reason I don't buy this is we've been through this before, before an election season with a disease emanating out of China. And the media's not going to tell you the story. They're going to tell you a story. I need you to understand the difference. There is a difference between me telling you a story and telling you the story. The media, what they're looking to do here with this, they're is trying to figure out right now how to leverage this thing to take advantage of the election season and make Biden look good, or at least not make him look bad. If Trump were in office, it would be the opposite. I assure you, and Jim, you can attest to this as an avid follower of the media politics. If Donald Trump were in office and these reports of a pneumonia outbreak in China, the headline in every liberal newspaper would be what? It would be, here we go again! Here we go again! Coming down from the sky! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes, man rising from the grave! Human sacrifice! and Dogs cats living together! That's it! Those would be media newsrooms right now, for those of you who grew up in the 80s and saw Ghostbusters. Human sacrifice! Dogs and cats! The fact that you're hearing so little about it says to me a couple of things. The media has decided to chill on the story to not make Biden look asleep behind the wheel. But second, media the is probably also saying, hey we don't have to panic right now because we don't know what it is, it may be a pneumonia outbreak but we can't trust China, and we should probably chill

Bloomberg World waters we do check markets all day long at Bloomberg it was another up week for the S &P 500 index 5 weekly gains in a row now today Wall Street turned a blind eye on Jay all's attempt to curb bets on rate cuts stocks and bonds climbed on speculation the Federal Reserve will stay put this month at ease policy in 2024 it would be premature to conclude with confidence that we have achieved a sufficiently restrictive stance or to speculate on pot when policy might ease we are prepared to tighten policy further if it becomes appropriate to do so well we are looking ahead to a fed rate decision on December 13 Jay Polosky is chief investment officer at TPW investment management but in our view the next moves for the Fed are going to be rate cuts and not because we're going into recession but because inflation has fallen fast enough and far enough such that it gives them to cut and provide insurance policy for risk assets and you can hear more of that conversation on the surveillance podcast you can download it wherever you get your podcasts also appearing with Polosky on surveillance was Mike Schumacher the head of rate strategy at Wells Fargo Securities and he says when it comes to rate cut expectations investors need to be patient markets since we all tend to have ADD in this business are looking for the next rate cut take your pick by the Fed the ECB whomever to be pretty quick and that's unlikely so that's why I think when you look at market pricing for instance with the Fed being priced to ease 45 points basis give or take by the middle of next year a lot of that probably gets pushed back in the second half of year the so the way we look at it is rates stay high for a while and then come down starting toward the middle of the year.

Argentinian Election Shakes Liberals to Their Core
"This first is about a minute 20 seconds the new president of Argentina Javier again Malay we discussed it yesterday this is the kind of thing ordinarily wouldn't make it into conservative radio a foreign election unless it was a big deal ladies and gentlemen this is an earthquake why? because liberals are afraid that other dumb liberals who vote for them are starting to wake up about how bad things really are due to liberalism and people like Javier Malay completely and totally understand just like Donald Trump that are politics just pictures and quick soundbites and if you get don't that and you think it's white papers and SWOT analysis and then diagrams like Kamala Harris you my friend are gonna lose I want you to listen to the media totally melting down over Javier Malay and apply the Dan Bongino theory if they're melting down about it it must be a good thing check this out a far -right outsider compared to former President Donald Trump has been elected to president of Argentina coming from the far -right Javier Malay a far -right politician a far -right politician far -right candidate far -right outsider extreme right -wing Mila is just way out there on the extreme scale Argentina has elected a right -wing populist right -wing populist right -wing populist Javier Malay is populist a who lacks government experience and displayed erratic behavior and foul language this is a potentially potentially worrisome development he's promised us some radical measures wielding a chainsaw symbolizes war government on spending threatening vital public services he has absolutely no areas his screens resonated widely his screens resonated widely with particularly young men. Malay's controversial tirades against the political class have drawn comparisons to neighbor Brazil's former president Jair Bolsonaro as well as former president Donald Trump. he has been deemed the Donald Trump of Argentina. Malay's campaign drew comparisons to Donald Trump's here in Malay the US. who has been compared to former president Donald Trump. You can guess who congratulated him by saying make Argentina great again. Make Argentina great again. Maybe these anti -democracy forces will in the end get overwhelmed but that didn't happen in Argentina not not even close whenever they freak out about something a bat signal should go up. Why are they freaking out? Always ask yourself why. Don't be like your dumb liberal never ask why about anything never Obama's great why I I don't know! I don't know that!

"Hey listeners, it's Jess here. If you're like me, you know there's nothing worse than finding out about a party after it's already happened. I don't want to miss out. Well, the GZM Family subscription is a party, and it's not too late to join. If you want ad -free and early access to new episodes of your favorite shows, plus bonus content that's only available to GZM family There are kids in this world who are different. Special. They go to school in a place you can't see. Mr. A. Dr. A. It's good to see you, Casey. Would have preferred better circumstances, but... Did you come down here looking for Brinley? Brinley? Wait, do you not know where you are? Not really. Kind of been locked in one room. Food's not bad, though. This is the Elixir Academy, where Brinley went to school. Ding, ding, ding. Headmaster's abode, to be exact. Headmaster. And you're here because...? Because I was trying to rescue sci -fi, and instead I got captured by the Headmaster, who has now seemingly brought us all together for this lovely reunion. You want to know how we got here? Kinda sorta. Childcatchers. Childcatchers? Childcatchers. Abducted us from the courthouse before my hearing. Why were you in court? Long story. Oh, your old pal Magnus wanted me to say hi. Magnus, can we please... Yeah, listen. There's a lot of weird happenings happening on this freaky deaky island. Is Brinley safe? Safe is a strong word, but yeah. I think she's okay. At least she was before I went through the portal. I'm sorry, did you say portal? Casey? Hello? Are you in here? She's gotta be back in these caverns somewhere. What are you gonna say to her when you find her? I'm gonna let her have it for everything she put me through since I was little. Yeah, except that wasn't her. Yes, it was. I mean, it wasn't her yet. You understand? No, I don't. I don't understand any of it. I'm sorry. For what? For all of this. It's a lot. Hey, at least I figured it out, right? And I even remember. What do you mean? I mean that for a while, before I discovered that Penn was the cause of it, I was losing my memories. Of home, of my family, of you. Oh, that sounds terrible. I could feel it all slipping away and it was so terrifying. Because even if we're not, you know, Siley anymore, the idea that I'd forget you, us, that was just the worst thing I could imagine. Because you changed me. We changed each other. Yeah, and I would never ever want to lose that. Casey, are you down here? She's not all bad, you know. Who? Casey, Katie, whoever she is. Oh, geez. What? You, that's what. Don't tell me you have a type now. What are you talking about? Mean girl, clever beyond her years. I don't have feelings for Casey if that's what you're asking. You'd better not, because that'd be profoundly weird. You know that, right, Sinus? That girl is my mom. I said I don't have feelings for her. Okay, just checking. I think she's gone, by the way. And we need to find a way back to Elixir Academy. Badger, where are you? I'm here, Bird. I think I came up with an idea on how we can help Bruce. Assuming we can find him. Why are you holding chains? Well, Bruce made me promise that if there was ever a chance he'd go full Adam that I - That you'd chain him up. And then shut him down. Oh, there are other options. So what's this idea of yours? Right, my idea. I was out for a little swim and it suddenly hit me. Casey is the one who made Bruce all out of me, right? We think so. And Casey was working for Delphine. Uh -huh. Well, it stands to reason that Casey was communicating with her from inside of Holiday Corp while she was working there. But you don't have access to Holiday Corp anymore. Well, let's just say someone there is still loyal. Say hello, someone. Hello, someone. Ivan is still working for you. I'm working with Queen Birdie as a friend. See? Pays to be nice to your AI. Cool. So what's the plan? Ivan? I was able to trace the signal of every called Casey Holiday place from inside the building. There was one recurring number I did not recognize. Delphine. All we have to do is call the number, pretend to be Casey, arrange a meeting, and - Wait, pretend to be Casey? How do we do that? We don't. You do. I mean, you and Bruce made your voice lower, right? And Adam was able to make himself sound like Holiday. You want me to use Casey's voice? You think you can swing it? Do I think I can swing it? I can give it a try. Yes! You're about to become the most awesome thing in existence. A 16 -year -old girl. Sibot, anything to report from the beach? As a matter of fact, Cyrus Anders, yes. Did someone come by the island? No, but I'm detecting a change in the atmosphere. Oh great, another electromagnetic earthquake? Quite the contrary, Brinley. It's all gone. What's gone? The energy surrounding Elixir Key. You're talking about the energy that made Badger and Bruce shut down, that turned off their hoverboards? The very same. So means... that Hubby! You out there? You brought Hubby? You and I rebuilt him with the idea that we could go on rides together, right? Romantic rides around Juno? That feels like a long time ago. Well, you want to drive? You can go in front. I really did change you. Sibot, you sure we're not going to plummet into the water with the robot gators once we get up there? Nope. Great. Did you say robot gators? The Headmaster has an army. I'll explain on the way. Well, after you. Thanks. Cozy, huh? Yeah. Um, just one more thing. If that force field or whatever you want to call it is suddenly down, that might mean that the Headmaster wants us to go back to Elixir Key? I'm counting on you! Shh, it's starting. GZM shows.

A highlight from S3 E51: A Good Time for Bad Timing on the Island
"There are kids in this world who are different. Special. They go to school in a place you can't find on a map. And they're about to get a new classmate. Cyrus? Is that... Is it really you? It's really me. Well, at least she remembers your name. Casey? I... I can't believe you're here. Clearly. How did you... When did you... Why are you so tall? You look good. I'm glad to see you, friendly. Glad to see me? Get over here, you! I was so worried about you. I was pretty worried about you too. Is it just me or is he not giving the full hug back? That's enough, Casey. Hi, Cyrus Anders. Hello, I'm Jude. I get up, but still recovering from minor surgery. I remember you from the tour. Heard quite a lot about you from Brinley. Interesting. I haven't heard anything about you. Wonder why. You! Did you plan this? Plan what, Alaska? You go to Juno and try to take over my life like some weirdo stalker, and then you come back here with no warning just in time to make sure... At the exact moment you happen to be kissing someone other than Cyrus, you came to save you, by the way. I'm not talking to you. Except you definitely are. You know you sound more bonkers, Magoo, than usual, right? Please stay out of this. I'm just saying, we didn't even know Brinley was here and certainly not with Jude. Got it, life stealer. I did not try to steal your life. Cyrus, look, I know this isn't what you were expecting. Not what I was expecting either. But I am so happy you're here. You have to know that. Yeah, I know, Brinley. I'm happy you're okay. Okay? I wouldn't go that far. Because everything that's happened since you went on that tour since they lured me to the school was one big plan hatched by... The headmaster, I know, and this person is clearly dangerous and deranged. So if you and your boyfriend are smart... He's not my boyfriend! Whatever. If you're smart, you'll leave with me. Yeah, I can't do that. And neither can you, Cyrus. What? One look at Judely here and you've conveniently forgotten. Mila, you promised you'd help me find her? Here we go. Mila, Mila, Mila. This isn't about her, Brinley. And what do you mean you don't want to leave? Is it because of him? No, you insecure... Boy! It's because my mom is here. Somewhere. What are you talking about? She's the headmaster. What? Brinley, I... So you can swallow your bruised ego and try to help me solve this mess, Cyrus. Cyrus? Or you can turn yourself around and go right on home. Is it just me, or does the sea seem... A little cranky. Yeah, it gets like that sometimes. Do you think it has something to do with those rumblings we felt before? Maybe. You know something, don't you? About who I am? What I am? Maybe. So... Was it aliens? Am I from another planet? Pretty sure, no. Okay, then what? I'm from the future? I seriously doubt that, too. Fine. I was born in a laboratory as a part of a secret experiment to give kids superpowers, and I'm the superpoweriest. Um... What do you mean, um? That was a pretty specific guess. Wait, am I right? Is that real? Kind of. I don't understand. What about my mom? Is she part of the experiment, too? Pen, if you really were a part of this experiment, then I have a feeling that your mom isn't really your mom. Oh. I should probably see if Judah's okay. Wait! Stop! Pen, don't move! What is it? By your foot. That's a power line. Why is there a power line on this pile of rocks? Must have been jarred loose from somewhere during the earthquake. Is it live? Hang on. Oh, it's live all right. That would have definitely given you a jolt. But it didn't affect you. It tickled a little. A live wire. Tickled. Yeah. See, the reason I know about the experiment, it's called Gen -A serum, by the way, and we're not so affectionately called WitKids. WitKids. The battery. Because electricity. Is my co -pilot. And your superpower. I prefer to think my real power comes from my charming personality and incomparably dry wit. But yes, I'm coolly cool with the zappy zaps. And I want to help you figure out what makes you different and special. Good luck. I'm never even awake for it. It's like I feel this wave and suddenly a curtain goes down and when I wake up they tell me I was sleepwalking or in a trance or something. The door. It opens. It closes. I heard you say that once or twice. I don't know what it means. It means we need to do some research of our own. If you're game. Depends. What do you have in mind? Give me your hand. It won't hurt. Promise. But you may feel a little buzz. Come on. I don't feel. Ah! That was a little buzz? Sorry. Been a little extra buzzy lately. This is how I learned to control my abilities when I was younger. So first, close your eyes and concentrate. On what? On everything. And nothing. Helpful. Um, just focus on what you're feeling. On the power in your own body. Nothing's happening. I don't think. Maybe a little more zap. What's supposed to... Oh! Oh my gosh. I think you just opened... Well, Remy called that a portal. Pen? The door. Oh boy. It opens. Do you even know what we had to do to come down here and save you? Save me? Uh, I'm the one who came down here to save you first. After I came down here to get answers for you about your mom. I never asked you to do that. I didn't ask you either. Yeah, well, you know what else I didn't ask for? Casey? What do you say? I say we give them a moment to get sorted. Kinda enjoying this, Jude. Could use popcorn, though. Why'd you go to Juno, Casey? Whoa, how'd this been to me? What were you doing with Cyrus? She wasn't with me. I mean, yes, we were together on the hoverboard, but... This is rich, Brinley. Considering you were just smushing face with our student body president. That's it. I'm gonna... I've tried to stay in sleep mode, but I've heard enough. Cybot? You're here? Oh, hello, Cyrus Anders. Lovely to see you again. Uh, you too. What's the problem? The problem, as usual, is humans. It looks like I will have to be the voice of reason. Mostly because I was programmed as such. With your voice, by the way. He was. Don't you dare gang up on me, Cyrus's! Brinley, Cyrus, you care about each other. Oh, please. You do. It's the reason you created me, Cyrus. To quote, Look out for Brinley when you couldn't. End quote. However, I'm sure it was unpleasant to see Brinley smush her face on someone else's face. Cybot! Apologies. I am just stating the facts. We don't have time to get hung up on who was kissing whom and who came to rescue whom. And I think... Cybot, kindly make your way back into sleep mode. One annoying know -it -all, Cyrus, is enough. This is so typical. Excuse you? Cyrus flew from Alaska to Florida on a hoverboard. With a very unfortunate pit stop in Minnesota. For you! I don't need you to defend me. He's talked about you. And only you. Since the moment I met him. It is disgusting how much he cares about you. And you are the most selfish, ungrateful little... Please, don't get involved, Katie. Whatever. Maybe you two deserve each other. Did you say Katie? You're Katie now? I've always been Katie. K -A -D -Y. That's my name. Katie. And your initials are... K -C. Yeah? So... No. It can't be. I'm sorry, are you talking to yourself, Alaska? This doesn't make any sense. Emergency! Emergency! Emergency! What is it, Cybot? Electromagnetic waves are measuring off the chart. Take shelter. Shelter? Whoa. Where? Earthquake! Shh. It's starting. GZM shows. Imagination amplified.
A highlight from Why Evangelize?
"Listen to God in prayer. Our Father tonight, we thank you for Christ, the one who loved us, who gave himself for us, whose love ought to constrain us, his love for us, and the one whom we profess to love, his love should constrain us for him. O God, are we about to speak on a subject that many, if not everyone here, have heard time and again, time and time again. For some it makes them feel guilty, others have heard it so many times that they no longer are perturbed or moved. Yet, O God, what is important to you should be important to us. What moves your heart should move our hearts, and we thank you that what you have called us to do, you enable us to do. We thank you for the promise which we have heard a thousand times that you will build your church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against us. We are weak, we are sinful, we are unbelieving, we are unfaithful. We are merely instruments left to ourselves who are destined to fail. But by your grace and spirit, that which is impossible with men is possible with you. Whatever hours, days, weeks, months, or years you may have here on earth, it is our prayer that you will revive your work in us. That, O God, our hearts being filled with love of Christ would be stirred to share him with those who are yet on the brinks of eternity. May you forgive me of my sins and my many failures in this area of my life, my lack of passion, my lack of zeal, my indifference. May you forgive me of my sins, and as each one cries out, may you forgive us of our sins. And may we know a taste of what it is concerning what was said concerning the disciples of old, they went everywhere preaching the word. O Lord, fill us with a knowledge of you that would overflow in our speech. And may you please, may it please you, Lord, to bring many to Christ. Have mercy upon us, draw near to us in your grace, show us your glory, that we may know you and glorify you. In Christ's name we pray. Amen. Well, let's open our Bibles to Matthew 28. Matthew 28, and again I'm using the New American Standard Bible. And what do I say? I have so much to say to you and I have so much to say tonight. And I will begin by saying, but I don't know if I ever finish a sermon. I think I've built something of a reputation of being the preacher who does not finish his sermons. But I tell you what, what I say is what God wanted me to say and that's important. I may not be homiletically given an A or an A plus, but I trust that what I say. Imagine Peter say, I have three points for you tonight on a day of Pentecost, but I want to give the cover two. And everybody says, well, you're going to lose a point for that. Well, I trust the Spirit of God will guide me. And I know you know this passage, some of you may know it almost from memory, but let us read it in regards to our hearts. From verse one. Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. Can I pause here? Thank God for women in the church. Thank God for faithful women in the church. Luke 8 says there were a group of women who followed the Lord and who served him. I don't know where the churches of the Lord would have been without women. Or your place is not in the pulpit. But believe me, you have a place. We thank God for you. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred. For an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning and his clothing as white as snow. The gods shook for fear and became like dead men. Now shook there is from the same word for earthquake. So as I told our church recently, I said to the men, earthquake. That's how profound the appearance of the angel was. And may God give us a taste when we come. It doesn't matter who preaches. When we come to church, may we be earthquakes in the presence of God. May God shake us, revive us. And then it goes on, the gods shook for fear. Verse 5, the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for he has risen. Just as he said, Come, see the place where he was lying. Go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead. And behold, he is going ahead of you into Galilee, where there you will see him. Behold, I have told you. Comment here. I don't need no archaeologist to tell me the tomb. God told me the tomb is empty. Do not let science be raised above this. Science must not judge the truthfulness of this, but this must judge the truthfulness of science in every field of study. Once you are saved and you read this book of the Lord, more and more the Spirit impresses on you its invincibility, its authority, its inerrancy, because by reading it, faith is increased. Now we go to verse 8. And they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to report it to his disciples. And every morning when we awake and remember the Lord has risen, we too shall be filled with great joy. And behold, Jesus met them and greeted them, and they came up, took hold of his feet and worshipped him. That's how evangelism begins. Not with a training class, as important as that may be. Evangelism begins with knowing that Christ is risen and responding appropriately to him who conquered sin, death, the devil, and hell. It doesn't begin in somebody guilting you into witnessing or training you to witness. It begins with your heart being awakened to the reality of who he is. We read on. And behold, Jesus met them. Verse 10. And Jesus said to them, Do not be afraid, and go and take word to my brethren to leave for Galilee, and there they will see me. Now while they were on their way, some of the guards came into the city and reported to the chief priest all that had happened. When they had assembled with the rulers and consulted together, they gave them a large sum of money to the soldiers and said, You are to say, his disciples came by night and stole him away while we were asleep. And if this should come to the governor's air, we will win him over and keep you out of trouble. They were ignoring the one who came and did what was necessary to keep us out of trouble. Now they were spending money to keep those who were going to tell a lie out of trouble. And they were actually getting themselves and these guards in more trouble, at least in the sight of God. And if this should come to the governor's air, we will write verse 15, And they took the money and did as they had been instructed. And this story was widely spread among the Jews as is today, as is to this day. May I encourage you, there will always be lies about, always be false preachers about. You know, Cecil B. Mills, some of you may know that name. The Great Ten Commandments, you know that old movie that people like to see with Charlton Heston? Well, in case you didn't know, Charlton Heston is not Moses. But Cecil B. Mills said, you can't break the Ten Commandments. You can only break yourself against the Ten Commandments. You can't change God's truth. And no matter how many lies there are about there, you can't change one unit of God's truth. So we read on. But eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had designated, which means this was preplanned. His death, burial, and resurrection was not something he did not expect. He said it many times, Mark 9, Mark 10, Mark 8, 9, and 10 each time. He said, I will die. I will rise again. The disciples never got it. That's just in Mark alone. You could probably do a Bible study of the four gospels, then act and see how many times it's repeated. And Jesus came up and spoke, sorry, when they saw him, now notice verse 17, when they saw him, they what? They worshipped. You see again, the Great Commission is given in the context of worship. We can't train people to witness and think that's going to work. We teach them who Jesus is, and when they're led by the Spirit of God, informed by the Word of God, to acknowledge his, let me use a fancy word, ineffable gloriousness, his majesty. They would say we cannot but speak the things which we are seen heard. and Was Isaiah would say, here am I, send me? The question was not directly announced to Isaiah, but he heard a voice that whom shall we send, who shall go? And so overwhelmed by the glory of the God he had seen, he said, here am I. Here am I, send me. We must never teach evangelism or call people to evangelism without first calling them to the glorious one. And then we would not need to tell them to go. They will go. Jesus came and spoke to them saying all authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age. I rattled through that. You should know it from memory. And some of you who know a little bit of the original would know that really the main verb here is make disciples. And they will tell you, those who will perhaps pick up a commentary or know Greek will know the rest of the participles. So really Jesus is saying the great commissioners make disciples. And the participle as you go, and then it says baptizing, and then it says teaching. So there are those who would argue that the participles and excuses carry what we call imperatival force, meaning though they are participles hanging on the main verb, they are not the main command, they carry the force. I have no argument with that. But there is a reason why, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, such language like this is used, because God is saying while you are to go and while you are to teach and while you are to preach, that those things are not ends in themselves, you must make followers of me. Men and women who deny themselves take up their cross and follow me. Now as I tell you, I have a million things to say to you tonight. But I think that is a problem with so many churches. We bring people in and we expect them to grow up and mature. If anything is lacking in many of our churches, it is this ongoing discipleship. Christ took them for three and a half years and discipled them. Paul had men with him that he trained. And if you want to know how to disciple people, you have got to look at the cults. I do not even want to call their names from the pulpit. But these cults, they train their people. Have you ever noticed that? They take the more mature ones, take the younger ones and work with them until they themselves are so well trained that they begin to take others with them and train them. I do not know what is wrong with us or why we do not get what the Lord says here. But that to me is one of the greatest needs in the Lord's churches. And that is why people can be in our church for five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten years and behave as if they just joined last week. Because they do not know God's word. And God's word is how you get to know God. Well, what I wanted to do here tonight is to let you know, and I know I am not going to get through everything all right, so do not worry about me keeping you until Sunday morning. It would be interesting if you were to try that. We believe God chose his people before the foundation of the world. If he did not, nobody would be saved. Isn't that true? So according as he has chosen us and him before the foundation of the world, Ephesians 1 .4, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Verse five, having predestinated us unto the adoption of sons by Jesus Christ unto himself to the praise of the glory of his grace. So God chose us to be holy and he chose us for himself and he chose us in Christ and he chose us to the praise of the glory of his grace. Does that mean now, since God has chosen that you and I hold our Bibles and take it easy because those whom he has chosen, they will be saved, irrespective. We may not verbalize that, but that's how we think. We may not say we agree with that, but the truth is that's how we behave. Well, here's what God's word says, 2 Peter 3 .9, The Lord is not slow about his promises, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, now listen to this, this is in the Bible, not wishing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance. You could take whatever language you want and you could know whatever Greek you want. It says here, not wishing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance. Ezekiel 33, Now as for you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, Thus you have spoken, saying, Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and we are rotting away in them. How then can we survive? And here's what God says to the prophet, Say to them, say to them, As I live, declares the Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live, turn back, turn back from your evil ways, why then will you die, O house of Israel? God is saying, I take no delight, no joy, there is nothing in me that brings happiness over the death of the wicked.

A highlight from BLACKROCK TO INVEST $17.7 TRILLION IN XRP, BITCOIN, & ETHEREUM?!!

If you're listening on a podcast platform such as Spotify, Apple or Google, please leave a five star rating and review. It supports the podcast and it doesn't cost you anything, folks, huge news coming out about BlackRock and Wall Street ready to enter the crypto market. So here's the headline from Forbes. BlackRock Insider primes crypto for a huge seventeen point seven trillion dollar Wall Street earthquake that could be about to hit the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP. Let me give you the details here. A former BlackRock managing director has predicted it's only a matter of months until the U .S. Securities and Exchange Commission approves a long awaited Bitcoin spot ETF, giving funds that manage seventeen point seven trillion dollars worth of assets. The green light. Here's a quote from that BlackRock manager. The SEC will probably approve all spot Bitcoin ETF applications at the same time. I don't think they want to give anybody the first mover advantage. Former BlackRock managing director Stephen Schoenfeld said this week at the London conference, it was reported by Decrypt. Schoenfeld gave the SEC three to six months until it approves a Bitcoin spot ETF. Last month, one point five trillion dollar manager, Franklin Templeton, filed with the SEC for a Bitcoin spot ETF, joining a flurry of applications that was kicked off by the world's largest asset manager, BlackRock in June, and includes Wall Street giants Fidelity and Vesco Galaxy, Wisdom Tree and many more. Schoenfeld pointed to a recent decision by the SEC to delay until early next year at the latest on a handful of prominent Bitcoin spot ETF applications as accelerating the process. Instead of completely rejecting the whole list, they've asked for comments, which is a marginal but significant improvement in the dialog, Schoenfeld said. So he's absolutely right. And folks, I think you and I, who have been following this closely, know about this, right? There's a flood of capital that's going to come into this market and we're going to see new all time highs in the next bull market. And it's going to go to Bitcoin, you know, initially, like we've seen historically, and then the liquidity flows to the alts. It goes to Ethereum, to XRP, as mentioned here. So we are in a whole new paradigm right now with these Wall Street folks coming in and look, they've shown us what their plan is. Their cards are on the table, right? Let me just quickly recap what has taken place so far this year. Obviously, BlackRock and Fidelity and Franklin Templeton and all these folks have filed for Bitcoin's spot ETF. But it's important to note that BlackRock is heavily invested in Bitcoin mining companies. They're some of the largest shareholders of some of the most public Bitcoin mining companies. They also are holding USDC reserves for Circle. Charles Schwab, Fidelity and Citadel launched the crypto exchange earlier this year called EDX Markets. It's an institutional crypto exchange. PayPal, of course, launched a stablecoin on the Ethereum blockchain. Deutsche Bank will start offering crypto custody to institutional clients. Both Citibank and JP Morgan are working on deposit tokens on private blockchains. MasterCard launched a CBDC program with participants which include Ripple, ConsenSys and Fireblocks. Visa, of course, expanding their usage of USDC stablecoin on Solana and Ethereum. So all signs are pointing to adoption, folks, and institutional tradfi, real world adoption, not just rumors, but they're actually building and launching products. They're filing for their patents and applications. So the next bull market is going to be incredible. There's going to be a ton of capital coming in and I'm expecting it to be one of the biggest bull markets we've ever seen, if not the biggest, because I don't think there has been this level of capital waiting to come in with these ETFs. Right. You think about the retirement accounts and all the different capital locked up in different investment products that, you know, they can't really touch crypto directly, but through an ETF, they can. So that would be a game changer. And like I said, Bitcoin will pump like we've seen historically go to new all time highs. Liquidity will flow to alts. The alts pop off new all time highs as well. So I'm diversified. I hold Bitcoin. I hold XRP Ethereum in different alts. So I'm excited for the next bull market. Here's some other incredibly bullish news that is along the lines of institutional investors coming in with a lot of capital. Billionaire backed Hong Kong crypto VC pours $100 million into blockchain fund. The Titan fund will focus on early stage startups in gaming, metaverse and NFTs, and will prioritize equity investments rather than digital assets. So CMCC Global, a blockchain focused venture capital firm backed by Hong Kong billionaire Richard Lee, aims to provide support for entrepreneurs building companies in the industry called the Titan fund. It has a particular focus on early stage startups operating in the blockchain verticals of infrastructure, fintech and consumer applications such as gaming, metaverse and non fungible tokens. The Titan funds investments will be directed towards equity investments in blockchain companies. Block .one served as the anchor investor, pledging $50 million. CMCC Global, the fund's initiator, also contributed a 15 % general partner commitment. Other notable investors include Richard Lee's Pacific Century Group, Hong Kong's Jebson Capital, Winklevoss Capital and Animoca Brands co -founder Yat Sui or C if I'm saying that right. The Titan fund will empower great entrepreneurs to build the next wave of Web3 and blockchain powered fintech applications, Gemini co -founder Cameron Winklevoss said in a statement. Folks, this is huge. I mean, look at the amount of capital is coming in and they're investing in both the tokens. Now, not everybody is investing in the tokens. Some are, and some are investing in the equity aspect, the companies that are building the infrastructure for the tokens to be adopted, right? For the different blockchains to be adopted. So it's all bullish news around. And the fact that they're doing this when the markets are down, when the macro economic outlook is not great right now, but they know it's just a matter of time when those things are going to flip. We're going to be back in the bull market. Everybody's going to forget about now and the hard times and the fear and the uncertainty, right? It's funny how human emotions work, but this is why you have to look at the charts, have a macro outlook and understand the market cycles. We are in that transition phase right now between bear to bull market. We are certainly not in the realms of that bottom zone of the bear market. We are out of that. Clearly Bitcoin rallied this year, but we're not in that bull market where euphoria is starting to build. And for those of you who have experienced that before, you know what I'm talking about. So the Bitcoin halving is kind of my marker on the timeline for when I think the bull market starts. So that's what I'm anticipating looking at. And that's why I'm dollar cross averaging. I'm paying attention to what these big investors have been doing, like the amount of capital they're raising and so forth. So we just got to be patient, folks, like I said, dollar cross average and be patient. Now, quick word from our sponsor, and that is Uphold, which makes crypto investing easy. Uphold is a platform and exchange I've been using since 2018. They have 10 plus million users, 250 plus cryptocurrencies, and they're available in 150 countries. I've interviewed their CEO and many other folks so I can vouch for this platform. They also have precious metals on the platform that you can trade and also 37 fiat currency. So really unique platform. If you'd like to learn more about Uphold, please visit the link in the description. Now we got news here that Fairblock raises $2 .5 million for fully private blockchain transactions. The Fairblock team has recently secured $2 .5 million from investors to bring conditional encryption blockchains. to Folks, just further proof, right? Once again, keep in mind the economic outlook right now in the crypto market. There's nothing major happening right now with the price, but these companies are raising capital. People are giving them money. Why? Because they expect to make a return on their investment. They know that the current market cycle will be over and will be back in the bull market and there's going to be future adoption when you look at the S curve adoption model, right? So Fairblock is hoping to make conditional decryption, pre -execution privacy, a reality. Conditional decryption refers to allowing users to set conditions to that enable protocols to execute transactions without revealing any on -chain information before execution. Unlike zero knowledge technology, Fairblock is designed so that information is only encrypted or decrypted under certain conditions. It does so through advanced cryptography, including identity -based encryption and witness encryption. The company is also looking into fully homomorphic, if I'm saying it right, encryption or FHE, which will enable computations to be performed on fully encrypted data. Payment Momeni, Fairblock's co -founder, told Blockworks that the team had secured $2 .5 million in pre -seed funding to build this infrastructure. Folks, this is the building out phase for massive adoption for the next billion people and for a whole bunch of other use cases. And as you can imagine, what that's going to do to the prices of the tokens over time, you know, it's going to be incredible. So we have to be patient as these things are being built out. As always, go back and look at the 90s and the dot -com boom and, you know, there were boom and bust cycles there. But as the winners started building out their technology and getting more adoption, their valuations, of course, rose and increased significantly. So that's how we got to look at it, folks. Now, Stuart Eldorati, chief legal officer at Ripple, weighed in on the SEC's brief in the Coinbase case, which we covered in yesterday's news. He said, there's so much wrong with the SEC's brief in the Coinbase case that I don't know where to begin. Let's start with the SEC claiming without citation or support that digital assets have no innate or inherent value while collectible baseball cards do. So, you know, the SEC, they continue to look like fools. And we saw Congressman Richie Torres call out Gary Gensler about the Pokemon card situation. I think that caught Gary off guard where he's like, you know, is a Pokemon card security? What about a tokenized Pokemon card? And Gary's like, oh, I need more information. So, you know, the SEC, they're making things up as they go. But we know the game. The game is to slow this down, kill those pesky crypto startups, which, you know, are taking the market and making all the money while BlackRock and all these guys have to wait for regulations and have to wait for an ETF, right? That's a game. Allow the Wall Street folks to come in and take over. So, it's just roadblocks being put up to try to slow down the disruptors while the incumbents come in and catch up. Now, something interesting also coming out of the SEC, they're suing Elon Musk. So, there's going to be a probe into the purchase of Twitter in 2022. We'll see where this goes. And if it has legs, but this could bog down the SEC a bit because I'm sure Elon's going to fight back and we'll see where it goes because Elon's obviously trying to do things with crypto and Twitter and payments and much more. But we have to get more details. Now, finally, Matt Hamilton, who used to work at Ripple, and now he's, I think he works with Filecoin if I'm not mistaken, he met up with Kyle Samani. Now, those of you who don't know who he is. He's the co -founder and managing partner of MultiCoinCap. And I covered this over the years that these guys were spreading a lot of FUD about XRP back in the day. I think they were shorting as well. And I think they had insight into what Bill Hinman and the Ethereum folks were doing and that Ripple was going to get sued. So, they were shorting. They put their shorts in and they were spreading their FUD. Well, Matt brought the XRPs not a security t -shirt from the Ripple proper party and gave it to Kyle. You may say, well, why is that important? Well, years ago, Kyle back, I think it was in 2018, 2019, the man was walking around with a Ripple t -shirt saying hashtag XRP the security. So, once again, he and those guys were shorting XRP, I believe. And they knew they had some inside information. Will they get held accountable? That is to be seen. Probably not. But Matt said he had a good conversation with Kyle and we'll see how things progress, folks. Obviously, there's something fishy going on with these guys. Also, the other partner who blocked me, I think he's an Indian guy. I forgot his name, but he's also one that was just going around making neurons. You could see there was an agenda. We want to tell everybody XRP is a security. Now, why would you care about that? Unless you had a financial benefit and also in both ways. One, I'm going to short a competitor to Ethereum. And I'm probably going to go long on Ethereum. So, they were going around doing these things. But that's the news, folks. Let me know what you think. Leave your thoughts and comments below. Let me know what you think about this Forbes article on BlackRock and Wall Street. There's certainly a lot of capital waiting to come in and I'll talk to you all later. Bye.
A highlight from $17.7 TRILLION IS COMING FOR YOUR BITCOIN | SB Originals
"I've recorded at least a couple of videos at this point talking about not selling your Bitcoin to BlackRock, how the institutions are coming, Fidelity, BlackRock, ARK, etc. The big players are coming and they want your Bitcoin. And I get the impression that many of you don't really appreciate why Bitcoin is so special, why the institutions do want your Bitcoin and will pay you whatever price they can to get it, and why selling it is the absolute last thing that you want to do. This article from Forbes is titled a fast growing 17 .7 trillion, that's T, trillion, Wall Street crypto earthquake is suddenly hurtling towards the Bitcoin and Ethereum price. Let's ignore that latter part, the Bitcoin price. Bitcoin has been thrust into severe uncertainty in recent months. Okay, first off, no, it hasn't. Maybe uncertainty if you don't understand Bitcoin, but this is baby sleeping time. This is not a time of uncertainty. These don't times matter in the grand scheme of things. The price dip and change from this to that is all irrelevant. It's all going to zero. And Bitcoin, on the other hand, is going up forever. So for the next little bit of the article, it talks about how the price has rose and dipped. And it's just a kind of a bunch of nonsense. But then it down here talks about Franklin Templeton. Franklin Templeton filed with the U .S. Securities Exchange Commission, the SEC, this week for a spot Bitcoin ETF, joining a flurry, that's an understatement, of applications that was kicked off by the world's largest asset manager. That's right, BlackRock in June and includes Fidelity, Invesco, Galaxy, Wisdom Tree, who between them manage 17 .7 trillion worth of assets. You have to realize that that's not really what matters. It's not that amount of money going into Bitcoin. It's what that signals to everyone else, because that 17 .7 trillion, yes, is under control by those asset managers. Yes, but you know what else happens when the big boys do things? Everybody else pays attention. So you get all these family offices going, wait a second, I'm sorry, BlackRock did what? They put what where? Oh, so, OK, I guess that's what we should do. This happens in every arena around the world. You can see it in literally everything. If a movie does something, other people try and copy it. If a technology does it, iPhones, for example, everybody else tries to copy it. So when BlackRock and Fidelity and Invesco, when they do move into the space and it is coming, they wouldn't all be filing for this just to do something to do because they're so bored. No, they're doing this because they want a piece of that. And why do they want a piece of it? Let's cut to something that seems completely unrelated. Post Malone has bought Magic's two million one ring card. And this is from the guy that found it. I believe he was in Toronto, Canada. When I found the one ring, the first person who came to mind was Post Malone. I have played Magic since I was a kid, and obviously it would be amazing to keep this card. But for a guy like me, being able to sell it is a life changing. I just really hoped it would go to someone who would appreciate it as much as I do. This is my dream come true. Meeting Post Malone and him buying the one ring from me is literally a moment straight out of a fairy tale. Post Malone, at Magic the Gathering, you have changed my life. Things like this don't happen to people like me. I guess it's Magic. I am forever grateful. In the past few months, Post Malone was on with Joe Rogan, and Joe Rogan asked him about that. And Post Malone was like, yeah, I did spend that much money on a card, and Joe Rogan doesn't get it. But here's why he did that, because it's the only one that will ever exist. And you might say, yeah, but Dell, you can go over to TCG player and get one for here. Look, with the 37 bucks right here, the borderless one, here's a different version for 60 bucks, 50 bucks, whatever this one, 100 bucks. So you don't need to spend two million dollars on it. Okay, no, you don't to actually have that card in your deck and can play with it. Sure, you can spend 50 odd whatever bucks on it and get it. But to get the exact one that Post Malone spent $2 million on, the one of one, that exact version, no, you do need to spend $2 million to get it or whatever Post Malone is selling it for now. If you've ever experienced a banking kerfuffle, to put it mildly, like I have, then there's a really good chance you already know the importance of Bitcoin. But you might have other questions. Maybe you don't feel quite as secure with your self custody setup as you would like to. Schedule a free 30 minute consultation call and they will help you solve whatever it is that you have about Bitcoin. Don't let a question keep you up at night. Call the Bitcoin way. At this point, I imagine you're wondering at least two things. Those are, what in the world happened with the banking story? What is Magic the Gathering have to do with this at all? And number three, so why in the world does Fidelity and BlackRock, why do they actually want that? Let me go through these. First off, why does BlackRock and Fidelity and all the big players, why do they want Bitcoin? Here's why they want Bitcoin. This one's from at BTC salvation. He says owning one Bitcoin is rare. How rare is it rare than the Magic the Gathering card? No, it's not quite that rare because there's only one ever in existence of that. But here's how rare it is. It's like owning roughly 25 pounds of gold or 107 acres of land in the US or roughly 1754 acres of land in the world or roughly 6 .7 houses in the US or roughly 109 houses in the world. And what has BlackRock been buying? It's homes. What has Bill Gates been buying? It's farmland. What do the people in power, what do these large players in the financial space want? They want, ladies and gentlemen, if you haven't figured it out by this point, I'm not sure what to tell you, but I'll tell you, they want scarce assets. They want the things that there is only a limited amount of. And what will there only ever be 21 million of? Bitcoin. That's right. There will never, ever, ever be more than that. What if somebody else forks it and they make a whole new thing called Bitcoin too? They've done that. It's trash. It's garbage. It's going to zero. It's all going to zero. You can only find perfect digital scarcity once. It's not possible to do it again. Anything else that's a copy of it is, oh, I already told you what it is. It's a copy of it. That's what it is. There is, you can't do it again. Bitcoin is true digital scarcity and anything else that comes along after it is a copy. So now what does this have to do with magic, the gathering and rarest things and scarce things? And well, let's jump over to something else that seems completely unrelated. I've had hedge fund managers, like, reach out to me on LinkedIn to be like, hey, like, could you talk to us about TCGs? Like, we want to know how they work. Like, that's an experience that I'd never had before. Do you see it yet? Are you starting to understand? Am I painting the picture clear enough for you that the power is to be how much of the pie they want? They don't want the tin. They don't want the crust. They don't want that nice top with the different funny shapes cut into it. They don't want the juicy filling. They definitely don't want the bottom. No, they want the whole damn pie. Every crumb, last every single little iota of the pie. If that includes card games, hedge fund managers are going to call card game designers and ask them, how can we get it on that pie? They want all of the pies, every last one. They're going to show up to the marine calendars and just give me the pie. Every last one. They definitely want the Bitcoin pie, every single one. So if that means contacting old Gary Gensler and saying, hey, get this approved, don't do that. If it means contacting drone pal and Janet Yellen saying, hey, print us all of the money ever so that we can entice these goons out of selling every last Bitcoin that they have so that we control and not they because they're just peons. They're just silly people. They don't know what to do with their money. They're clueless. They don't know. We know that's how we got here. Clearly, we're the best players in the room. We know what we're doing with the money. We're the ones in control. Let us have all of it. Print us as many Chuck E. Cheese prize tickets as you possibly can. All of them. Trillions of them. It doesn't matter. Who cares what the debt is? It just goes up and up and up. It doesn't matter. Give us more so that we can buy the Bitcoin off of them. They keep on kicking the can down the road and behind them, the road is crumbling. And where's the new road come from? They're just laying it as they go. And at some point they will stop to catch their breath and everything will come crumbling down. But guess what's under that road? Bitcoin. That's where everything falls to. Everything falls onto the shoulders of Bitcoin. And Bitcoin has some real strong shoulders. Let me tell you what. So where does my story end? My story ends with my banking crisis being averted. I finally talked to somebody that had since they knew how to solve the problem. They said, yes, let me actually get you to the right department. I don't know why those three other people didn't do that. Got to the right department. I was helped by a lovely woman who got me back access to my bank account. So that was a harrowing few hours of that morning. But I eventually did get access to my bank account. But for those few hours, it was a sobering experience to realize that I could be completely cut off from all financial access. I couldn't pay anything that I wanted. Rent was coming due, couldn't pay that, got bills due, can't pay those. Forget about buying a coffee, which might be nice to have or a sandwich or whatever like that. That's irrelevant. But when the bills start going, hey, you owe us this. And then we start turning off the electricity and you don't have Internet and then you can't do this and you can't do that. It's a real big problem. So, yes, the crisis was averted. But there is a global crisis looming, an absolute catastrophic world shattering, meteor impacting the world style event coming to the monetary system. And if you don't have some heavy shoulders to fall upon, I don't know where the road goes when the road crumbles. And if you have nobody to catch you, I don't know what's under there. I think it's just an abyss that falls forever. That's not a place that I want to be. Is it a place that you want to be? No, I don't know. But here's what I do know. If you're here on Simply Bitcoin, the chances that you don't want to be in that precarious situation is pretty good. So get subscribed, learn about Bitcoin, understand how important it is, and the answers will fall into place. And you, ladies and gentlemen, might fall upon the shoulders of Bitcoin. And like I said, this is not the first time I've talked about this. So check out this video right there where I go over in another way the institutions coming for your Bitcoin, because they are.

"Not controversial at all we just the do numbers are we lose 90 % of black vote which is absolutely unforgivable but when you look at people who've have done well with the black vote and both Trump and DeSantis have done well they've done okay he did very well down here in Florida the key that they I think they they they both had both of them what were they didn't treat black black voters any differently they didn't talk to black voters like they had I mean black parents care about soccer games and jobs and I it's not it's just so ridiculous I think how we overthink this thing you know I knocked on doors for two years in Maryland which has the largest population of upper -middle -class black voters anywhere in the country and then this is nothing surprising oh yeah how's the job right that's what I want to talk about jobs health care public safety I mean I think we overthink this thing and I think in this election if Trump were to win the nomination he seems to really be in the black community I don't want to get crazy you ain't gonna get probably 25 % of the vote or anything but we could really stand a really good chance at pulling anywhere from say 12 to 20 % and that would be an earthquake in a national electoral politics oh you're absolutely right Dan and your summary was perfect spot on I mean look I left the Democratic Party because they abandoned law enforcement they basically schools abandoned Dan I'm not on this radio program with you if it wasn't for quality school and that's being denied to all Americans you think inroads in with community the black by talking about American issues because everyone suffers from inflation crime, lawlessness, poor schools so what Trump is doing because I left in 2020 and yes he makes some inroads you get if Trump gets 15 to 20 % of the black vote 12 % 14 % there's no Democratic Party and I'll tell you right now he's doing much

"Happy Sunday everybody, welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming at 5.28 PM. The world is watching and praying for Morocco after a devastating 6.8 magnitude earthquake has left over 2,000 people dead and is responsible for enormous damage in the historic city of Marachech. Very, very bad news for Morocco and the people of that country. A devastating earthquake just happens out of nowhere. This is the deadliest earthquake to strike the country in decades. The numbers continue to pour in. They are expecting massive, huge amounts of casualties in this huge earthquake, but the numbers, according to the latest updates, are 2,012 have been killed and 1,404 remain in critical condition, according to Morocco State TV, citing the Interior Ministry. Rescue operations are ongoing and authorities continue to pull the dead from this rubble. Obviously, you know, it's a search and rescue effort at this point. Morocco's worst earthquake ever recorded was in 1960. This was near the western city of Agadir, which killed at least 12,000. Many Moroccans spent Friday night on the streets fearful of aftershocks from the 6.8 magnitude earthquake. Many Canadians who are in Morocco say this earthquake, which has killed over 2,000 people in the North African country, is absolutely incredible and terrifying. So we know that, you know, Montreal and there's a huge Canadian population in Morocco. Those two countries are very, very well connected. And I think it was the Canadian Prime Minister, I think his name is Trudeau, he was really working hard to try to assist the people of Morocco. Also, I read where Spain sent like 56 rescuers over there to help these people. This is a terrible situation, man. Anytime there's an earthquake, obviously, it catches people by surprise. People were not prepared for something like this. So the casualties are huge. I mean, they are expecting, I mean, the biggest, you know, earthquake ever to hit Morocco killed like 12,000 people. We could be looking at those kind of numbers here. From the early reports, there is no telling how many casualties are still under all that, you know, rubble. And you know, this is just a really, really very, very bad situation. So we here on Convo Over Cigars, I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming, we are praying for the people of Morocco.

"earthquake" Discussed on Telecom Reseller
"I hope what we're gonna see, this isn't exactly a recommendation, this is kind of a hope for the future. I'm hoping what we're gonna see is that the PSTN service providers who have really a great product of being able to deliver calls and provide numbers all over the country, that they're gonna adopt out of band stir-shaken technology of some form that's TDM compatible so that they're able to deliver caller ID authentication information using their existing networks, even though they've got a large need to connect into a lot of regions of the United States and Canada and beyond using TDM tandems, which are unfortunately the state of the art. So I think this is a solvable problem where they can actually build out and do stir-shaken through these TDM gateways. Right now there's no FCC mandate to do it, but there's a lot of reason to think that the FCC is gonna clamp down on this third-party certificate issue I talked about. And so it's time to start thinking in terms of what direction do we need to do to really stop robocalling that's illegal and to prevent mislabeling of good calls as if they're spam. And I think those are kind of three main areas and one big hope that I think will really help us in the future. Well, this has really been interesting. Big takeaway I think is what you just said a minute ago there, you don't wanna start an earthquake by doing the right thing and carefully review other options, take other steps. And this will be, I just wanna give you a chance to talk about your CIP Forum speech. This is what you're gonna be talking about at CIP Forum, CIPNOC meeting. Yeah, that's right. What I just went through is really just a preview. I've got hard data, I've got some graphs, I've got some evidence to show at the CIP Forum CIPNOC meeting which happens September in Herndon, Virginia. This is a long running meeting. ECG is proud to be the first ones to really talk about stir shaking at the CIP Forum meetings way about eight years ago. And so I won't say that we invented the technology but we communicated it at this meeting and it's really taken on, the CIP Forum has really taken on a lot of responsibility and done a lot of progress to help roll out this technology which is a fundamentally good technology but like a lot of good technology, it takes a lot of work to implement it well. So that's a lot of the focus call authentication and texting authentication is a big part of the focus of the discussions. One thing I really love is that it's an in-person meeting and we always get so many great opportunities for networking, for talking about new ideas, for chit chat, for drinking coffee together. We get a lot of good opportunities for helping these ideas get out and innovate. It's a great place to ask questions of experts. I always go, I learn a lot because I ask a lot of dumb questions. And so I really like these in-person meeting opportunities. And so this one's coming up and I'll have the full version with all the detail of our research report will be presented at CIP Forum. So I don't even have to offer a spoiler alert. This is just a taste of what you're gonna learn if you go. Well, that's a great argument to go to the conference. It's a great argument to learn more about this topic. Mark, where can we learn more? Where can we find more resources, information about your research, and also the solutions you guys at ECG support? Yeah, so our website is ecg.co. I publish parts of our research there.

"This is Doug Green and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and this is a special podcast for TR publications and the Cloud Communications Alliance, CCA, and we're going to be talking about Shaken Without the Earthquake, a really special podcast. I love that headline, Mark. What a great idea. We have with us Mark Lindsay at ECG. Mark, thank you for joining us today. I'm glad to. Thanks for having me on. So in case you guys haven't figured it out, we're really going to be talking about, of course, your Shaken, and we're going to get a little bit of an update on that and Mark's take on some things. Mark will be presenting at the CIP Forum's CIPNOC meeting coming up in September 12th to 14th in Herdon, Virginia. So everyone should try to make that or find out more about that. We're going to talk a little bit more about that in a second, but Mark, what is ECG? So we're a network engineering staffing company, so we provide technical staff for specific projects or to help boost the engineering teams and the product development teams, mostly at voice service providers and internet service providers. Some of our clients include UC players like Telogen IP, Blue IP, Segra, Lumen, and then some of the really larger ones like Vonage, AT &T T-Systems, which is also branded as Deutsche Telekom, and then some other big service providers. And we've been doing this for about 21 years now. We've been providing engineering services for really voice service providers primarily. Well, let's jump right into it because again, this is such a neat headline, Shaken Without the Earthquake. That's going to be your presentation at SIPNOC. I understand you've been actually doing some research on this. Tell us more about what you're talking about. Yeah, thanks. So I'm an engineer, and so I've got a lot of great relationships with the engineers at a lot of the top Starshaken service providers, the voice service providers and software companies. And everyone knows that there's a big need to control illegal robocalling, and part of that is Starshaken. In the US, Canada, it's mandated technology now, and as of just last month, July 2023, all the US service providers had to be using Starshaken in the SIP parts of their network. And so what we wanted to find out was if you wanted to protect your customers from illegal robocalling or nuisance calls, what's possible today? And with the technology that's now mandated by law, folks have had years to put it into place, what good is it? So the name of our research report, we're calling it Shaken Without the Earthquake, and it comes from this idea. If you wanted to use shaken technology to protect your customers, it's definitely possible that you could do it in the wrong way and do blocking that creates a substantial outage. So for example, on your podcast with Numerical, they talked about blocking that's done badly, and I love the way they talk about that. They do a really good job of explaining the risk of doing blocking when it's incorrect, blocking the wrong traffic or in the wrong way. The challenge is that it's incredibly difficult to actually test shaken stirred technology today to know what the impacts are gonna be. So we did some in-depth research with one of our clients, one of the largest voice service providers in the United States, analyzing data from hundreds of millions of calls placed this year. But then beyond just kind of the viewpoint of one service provider, we wanted to go past that. So we consulted with our colleagues at Microsoft working to work on the Teams product. We talked with some of the major shaken software providers, including New Star, part of TransUnion now, TransNexus and Sansei. So they really see a lot of traffic. They see hundreds of implementations. Between each of them, they see thousands. And this gave us insight and data and the wisdom of a lot of engineers and managers at the major service providers to try to get at this problem. How do you use the shaken data without doing it wrong, without creating an earthquake, meaning an outage in your networks? So Mark, with that research, what did you learn? Well, so the undisputed result is this. Every expert represents, that we talked to, they recommend against blocking calls based on the shaken available data today. So meaning the calls that come into your network that have shaken stirred data on them and in the identity header, that that data is not considered adequate to do blocking. A lot of folks recommend against it. And a lot of them, I can tell, they've been saying this a lot to their clients, to their colleagues and other managers, some of these large service providers, they have to make this case that you don't wanna start doing blocking based on the data that's available today. But this was actually a little surprising. And that's the reason that so many of my colleagues are having to basically sing the song, which is that everyone's expecting that stir-shaken data should be able to provide great information today. We finally got to the point where all the service providers in the US have it turned on. And so, but they're having to say though, well, wait, you have to hold off. You can't actually use it just yet. And these are some of the same companies who have the most benefit from successful deployment and use of stir-shaken. So we really should take their cautions very seriously because they're the ones who really are gonna be encouraging the proper use of stir-shaken. But they're saying, well, you don't wanna use it for blocking just yet. So this means that the nuisance in robocalling blocking is really still possible. So with the proper kind of analytics connected to the right kind of know your customer, with the right kind of registrations for legal robocalls, the things that you sign up for, the calls that you really wanna get, that kind of proper analytics with know your customer, with a proper kind of communication, that kind of thing makes blocking possible. But the experts and engineers that we work with say that the shake and stir data only contributes to part of that picture. Analytics that are based on the calls that are placed, their registration status, where they're calling from, caller IDs, how fast they're placing calls, things like that. Those factors are still super important and they're really the heart of the spam calling analytics today. Now, what else did you find? Well, so beyond that basic answer that everyone says, don't block on shake. And we found kind of a surprising picture on the current state of the enforcement and implementations today. Three important factors come to mind. One is that TDM networks are a major choke point. Now, everyone knows that TDM, which is a pre-internet protocol technology, is not capable on its own of passing through the identity information that's necessary for call authentication. But it's kind of surprising that so many of the high-tech PSD and gateway companies are really at the center of that limit. These are companies that have invested heavily in their TDM network over the past couple of decades, and those networks right now don't provide a major feature that's necessary for fighting robocalling. So that's kind of one surprise, is that those very companies that a lot of VoIP providers are depending on are not quite ready to provide really what's needed to fight robocalling here in 2023. Another thing that was kind of surprising was that when the info does arrive, when you're a service provider and you get the data inbound, the identity header inbound, that it's often misleading. And one of the major sources of that is third-party certificates. So this is when I'm a service provider, I send my call to another service provider, and they sign it with their certificate, and they sign it as if they're the originating service provider. So a little bit of a complicated story there, but basically they're signing with their own signature, their own certificate, as if they're the originator of the call. Well, everyone knows that identifying the real origin of the call, that's really the major value of Starshaken. What we want to know is we want to know who was the phone company who was responsible for this call and how it entered the network. But with third-party certificate use that we're seeing with a lot of the major PSTN gateway companies right now, we're not getting that information. We're getting something that's misleading. And there's a right way to do this, but third-party certificates are not the way to do this. And really a final interesting factor that was a big surprise, it kind of links back to some of their friends at Numerical are saying, which is that there are large-scale legal robo-callers that we really depend on, that we need. So they give the example, for example, of your school district calling or your airline calling or your credit card company calling to let you know something that's urgent, they need to get your attention right then. And if those calls get blocked or incorrectly marked, then it's bad for everybody involved. Well, the federal government of the United States is actually a major robo-caller. You can imagine the case of a national emergency that requires a quick mobilization and their ability to call their trained personnel is really pretty vital. But as of today, a substantial number of the calls that they're placing don't actually receive the full attestation allowing service providers to verify the source of the information. And so when you've got things like emergency management, that's actually at risk of having its calls blocked because of incorrect deployment or application of stir-shaking data, then you've got an issue that really does deserve a lot of care and work. Not to mention, of course, all of those everyday use cases, like when I need to make a purchase on my credit card and I need to be able to take that call. Those are the everyday cases. There are really important life and safety issues that we need to be thinking about and engineering around. So those were three of the big surprises that kind of came out of this research that we got from the different companies. All right, so Mark, what's your recommendation? What do you think service providers should do? Well, this gets to the heart of what ECG does. We give service providers temporary access to experts, engineers and my team and beyond that make their networks work more effective, efficient and compliant. So we're not legal staff at all. What we do is we help engineers deploy technology so that they are compliant and legal. But then they're also effective that they're fighting these problems and they're thinking all the way through. So we are happy to work with any of the technology providers like Numerical, like Neustar and C &C and TransNexus and all the other companies in this space. We're happy to make their technology work as effectively as possible in service provider networks. So that's our role is to work and help that be possible. So that's where I'm coming from. Basically, I don't really have a particular technology provider that I'm in love with. I'm in love with everybody. I want everyone's technology to work as well as possible. So one thing that we say to our service provider clients, voice service provider clients is that for non-compliance, the risks are actually pretty severe. So the FCC can kick you out of the swimming pool. They can say, hey, you can't place or receive any calls. They can disconnect you from the network by their orders. So that's different from fines, which used to be their only method of actually doing a penalty. Now they can actually tell all the companies that you connect to to stop carrying your phone calls. So that's one of the things. So it's critical for service provider leadership to know that their stir-shaken implementation is actually working. I think it's possible to set it up and not really know that it's working, but testing stir-shaken is actually an advanced skill. It's a developing art form, really. And so to do an audit, to confirm that your stir-shaken is working so that your calls are getting the best possible attestations and that information is getting conveyed, that's an important function for service provider leadership to consider and undertake. You want to know that your calls are being signed. You want to know that they're being signed as your company and not some third party company out there. And we're finding a lot of cases where service providers might be doing everything right, but then one step past their network, some of their good work is getting deleted and overwritten. So that kind of effort will pay dividends. That effort of getting that right will pay a lot of benefits to allow your calls to be delivered to their endpoint. Another thing we recommend is you really do need a way to protect your customers against spam calls, but without creating an outage when you do it. You don't want to create an earthquake by doing the right thing. So we would recommend your engineering team work on finding and implementing solutions that protect against the spam calling, that detect it. So reasonable quality analytics and then getting that integrated. You need ways to see how well it's working. So you don't just want to set it up and forget it. You want to be able to see that it's working and then you need some testing regime. So as you're making maintenance changes in your network, you know that it's continuing to function properly. The one of the challenges about spam is that unlike a spam email where you can go check your spam box, if you make a spam decision that blocks a call, that call is gone. And so there's no way to go look and see what was the content of that in the same way that you can go look at your spam email. So managing spam is a whole new frontier for voice service providers. And so we can help service providers to do that. But that's a key thing that service providers do need to take on and understand is a new obligation. And then kind of a final bit recommendation is if your calls are flowing through TDM only, PSTN gateway companies, then it's very possible that many of the calls placed from your network are going to go out to others and be labeled as spam likely. And that's not good for anybody. That means that your legitimate customers making, sometimes making hand dial calls, we're not even talking about robocalls, just ordinary calls from their business lines are gonna have, they're called mislabeled. So instead of seeing your caller ID name, you're gonna get, their recipients are gonna get some indicator that this is likely spam. In some cases, that call is not gonna be delivered. And so now we have kind of a corresponding problem to the email spam situation where suddenly a lot of emails were not deliverable anymore. We have, in some cases, difficulty getting calls through. We as an industry have difficulty getting calls through for the very same reasons that our friends at Numerical were talking about. They're basically being mislabeled. And this has a lot to do with the type of technology that's being used for delivery of the calls for the network. And that's a whole new thing that folks have never really had to think about. That's like suddenly having to think about what color your power cables are. You've just never really thought about like something that's buried inside the data center, what that is. Well now, the different kind of network connectivity for placing calls really does matter. And so we can help service providers work through evaluation and understanding how their calls are getting delivered.

"In getting aid to the region for political purposes. I think we've still got to we've still got to watch that and see what happens. Meanwhile, Erdoğan has long seen himself as something of a regional arbiter and clearly he's been one of the few aspiring mediators in this standoff with the Ukraine Russia war. He wants to have the year of both sides periodically at least. And of course, this week marks the one year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. What does all this mean for Erdoğan's ambitions to be that regional arbiter? But that's another very, very interesting question because of course he is so taken up and you can see that he is so preoccupied. Not just by the physical damage of the earthquake in the southeast of turkey, but also potentially by the by the political damage to his future leadership in turkey. So the question is whether even the amount of time and attention that he was able to devote to Russia and the Ukraine war before. Whether he'll have that sort of continuing at his disposal or whether he or whether he'll be looking really to domestic priorities and that that will rule out to an extent. His ambitions to be this sort of international mediating figure. Mind you, neither Moscow, nor kiv has shown much appetite for diplomacy, Mary. That is entirely true, but you never know when that might change because we've seen all sorts of high profile events and meetings connected with the with the anniversary of the Russian invasion. So we've seen President Biden in Kyiv spectacular pictures of him meeting the zelensky in one of the city's main cathedrals. We've had British prime minister dashing to Kyiv for the same sort of photo opportunities. And everybody is pledging that they're going to continue the support, et cetera, et cetera. As long as the tax well, as long as it takes, so they say, but there's this, there's a lot of promises and one of the things that the zillion ski has made very clear while trying not to sound too ungrateful because he's been criticized in the past for not being grateful enough for the help that the west has been sending him. But there is always a question about that there's been this question of leopard tanks whether the Germans would send those, the British sending tanks, Ukraine now wants fighter aircraft and a lot of people are hanging fire about whether that's really a good idea. But there is always this delay between promises and delivering the equipment or the weapons and in America in particular you see the beginnings of a debate about how far it's really sensible to be helping to fuel this war helping to continue it. And there's the risk resiliency that that sort of sentiment may increase. Yes, I heard one Republican congresswoman complaining that Ukraine now has become the 51st state of the United States, but keeping with keeping with Ukrainian aid and you mentioned zelensky not being grateful enough for it all being seen not to be grateful enough. This raises a very important question and it's a good way to conclude this interview Mary. The consequences for Ukrainian aid. That is the consequences of this earthquake because we've got all this western aid going to Kyiv to fight Russia, but now there's obviously a huge demand for aid and humanitarian relief across both turkey and Syria. So what are the consequences here for Ukrainian aid? Well, I think, again, this is a very, very interesting factor that we'll see play out in the next few weeks. The first one is obviously competition for humanitarian aid. We're not talking about competition for military aid. And that's primarily what resiliency is interested in. But the country as a whole has been receiving quite a lot of humanitarian aid and now suddenly there is a rival for those resources. But the other thing, I think, in a way, it could be more damaging, which is that Ukraine has benefited hugely from the enormous amount of western attention. And it's been very good at commanding that attention. It's PR operation has been absolutely state of the art. It will be studied for years to come in terms of effective war propaganda of projecting your cause abroad. But the earthquake has had the effect of blotting out some of that from the western international media. Now, at the moment, Ukraine is back in the headlines because of the anniversary. But the extent to which the earthquake will be competing for media attention. I think is possibly an even bigger risk to Ukraine and its cause in the west. Than the actual material issue of humanitarian aid. So in a nutshell, Russia could gain and Ukraine could lose if international attention shift elsewhere. You mentioned Erdoğan, he could be weakened with implications for turkey's regional status and Assad could consolidate his hold on Syria sooner than expected, these are the geopolitical consequences of the earthquakes. Mary, great to have you back on between the lines. Well, thank you very much. That's married to Jessica, a columnist with the UK independent newspaper.

"Parametric insurance products. So I understand you're trying to make specific parameters or data points that get that get hit by an event so that you have these automatic payouts. But it does seem like getting the triggers right would still be an issue, right? Because the investors would want to see something that they think isn't likely to happen. And then the people who are actually selling those products would want to have them set so that there is a realistic chance that if something happens, they would get that additional money. I don't know. It just seems like it would be slightly complicated to figure those out. It's certainly complicated. And I think this is an area that the industry struggled with for a while when parametrics first came around. They tended to be quite simplistic in the way that triggers were structured. One of my favorites was Tokyo Disneyland, the theme park, water. It's the best Disneyland. Don't we all? They actually bought a catastrophe bond back in the late 90s. I can't remember the exact year, but it was called concentric limited, and the reason it was called concentric was that the people who structured the deal drew three circles around the center of Tokyo Disneyland and if an earthquake occurred within those three concentric circles that worked out from Disneyland, you'd get a different payout depending on which circle it fell in. Now, of course, if the earthquake epicenter was outside the furthest circle, could still be some damage. They may not get any payout at all, of course. But that's really something that the buyer of the protection, I guess, has to. Has to reconcile with themselves and really they're buying this as kind of a form of just in time capital that's going to come in when the

The city of l. Garvey was devastated as were many other smaller communities in the south there may also have been as many as ten thousand people killed along the coast of morocco. The tsunami went across the atlantic ocean causing damage to islands in the caribbean and in brazil the ramifications of the earthquake were wide reaching ineffective places around the world far removed from portugal for starters in the aftermath of the earthquake.

And, um, this is a it sent me this story. About these. These earthquakes is swarm of earthquakes US. In Walker, California A 6.0 earthquake struck near the southern the Northern California Nevada border. Yesterday, it sent items flying off the shelves triggered rock slides. A swarm of aftershocks also followed the quake, hence the term aftershocks and kept residents on edge Friday. The larger quake it was originally recorded at 5.9 later revised to six point out was felt as far away as Las Vegas and the San Francisco Bay Area Red Residents of Sacramento County in Carson City. Nevada, also felt the quake and some of its residual aftershocks. Um it was reported just before four. It was centered just south of Lake Tahoe and near Walker in Mono County. The shaking sent rocks tumbling into roadways and Walker and Colville, causing road closures and traffic delays. The larger quake was followed by dozens of aftershocks, including at least a half dozen of magnitude four or above, according to the USGS. All aftershocks felt on Friday. As of noon. We're a magnitude 3.7 and below. So you know, Since since I came on the air, there are still aftershocks, but they're diminishing in their intensity, so they're below 3.73 point seven and below. Experts are telling people that the aftershocks are expected to persist for several days. This one that happened yesterday was the largest earthquake recorded in the area since a 6.1 In 1994. State. Emergency crews worked through the night to survey for damage. Minor damage was found. There weren't any significant effects to infrastructure. Um, you know, and this is just a reminder. I mean, there's more about this, but it looks as if you know there wasn't significant damage because of the area in which this occurred. And then, of course they give us the tips that I think most of us know. Drop cover. Hold on in a safe place. If you don't have sturdy, finished furniture, sit on the floor next to an interior wall and cover your head and neck with your arms. You know, we used to say, stand in a doorway, and now we're told. Do not stand in a doorway. Pick a safe place in each room of your home, workplace or school that might be under a piece of furniture. If it's nice and sturdy against an interior wall away from Windows bookcases are tall furniture that could Fall on you. Um yeah, and be aware of evacuation plans as well. And you can take some certain precautions. Um, like, keep a flashlight and good shoes by your bed. In case it strikes in the middle of the night. Make sure your home is securely anchored to its foundation. How would you know? How do you know? I mean, do you have to bring an inspector around? I mean, how do you know? It should be aren't all houses securely anchored to their foundations? Uh, bolt embraced water heaters and gas appliances to wall studs. Both bookcases. China cabinets. Other 12 furniture to wall studs. Hang heavy items like pictures and mirrors away from beds. Couches in anywhere, people sleep or sit Brace overhead light fixtures in straw install strong latches or bulls on cabinet. Larger, heavy items should be closest to the floor and learned how to shut off your gas valves in your home. Keep a wrench handy for that purpose. This is that's really good advice. Usually they just tell us make sure you have plenty of water. Get you have a phone A handy make sure your phones are charged. I think those are really, really good pieces of advice. So anyway, I I one of the reasons that I'm paying attention to this is because of my earthquake alert system. And I have that. Because we're prone to earthquakes, and because it seems as if we're do So the swarms that we're experiencing recently, although there have been some where the epicenter has been in the Bay Area. Um, the ones that we've been experiencing the strongest ones seem to be closer to Nevada, you know, really close to the California Nevada border. I don't know what that bodes for us here in the Bay Area, if about anything at all or if that's just completely different, false system and we don't really have to worry about that. That that's a precursor to anything that's going to happen here, in any event were in earthquake country always be prepared, and when these things happen, whether it's directly in your area or just outside of your area or on the state line Um, take it just as a reminder that we need to do what we can to be prepared because there's no question that there will be an earthquake. The question is, when we never know exactly when it's going to strike. Look, I have a story that I want to share with you. And this is such a good story. Have you ever been in a position where you've watched, um restaurants? Throw out food. Um It seems like it was a long, long time It was. I guess it was a couple of decades ago, I worked selling Nordic tracks in a mall and this was in South Florida. And what was very upsetting to me was that I would say every single evening I would see in the food court. All of these places and some of the food was pretty darn good. They would, you know, pick up all the food that they hadn't sold and they would throw it away. Now they would spend just before closing like 15 minutes before closing, you could go and you could buy everything was really cheap. They would discount everything. But whatever wasn't sold, they gathered it up and they threw it away. And I threw a little hissy fit. I said, What are you doing? There are people who are hungry. There are food banks. There are places their shelters. There are places you can donate the food, too. And I was told that again. This was in Florida. I was told they can't and they can't because of, um health code violations that you can't just donate these foods from a restaurant and I thought it was cuckoo crazy, and I still think it's coo coo crazy. Well, now comes this app. It's a food waste app, and it's called too good to go. And what it does is, it saves leftovers from San Francisco restaurants. What it does is, it allows you to buy this food that otherwise is likely to go into the landfill. Now I want to share with you. This the writer of this article at SF Gate I want to share with you what she says as she experienced this, she says, as I walk out of San Francisco grocery chain Lukes local on a recent Tuesday evening I feel an unexpected wave of guilt wash over me in my hand is a heavy brown paper bag packed full of eight pieces of produce a ham and goat cheese sandwich, a loaf of seeded country bread.

Global news 24 hours a day on here and on Bloomberg Quick take powered by more than 2700, journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Susanna Palmer. This is Bloomberg. Welcome to Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg Radio. Bring you news comments and insights from Bloomberg Opinions worldwide Team of editors and columnists. I'm your host. June Brosseau. This week how covert vaccinations are going pretty well. If you're white, also on the show why stock ownership for rank and file employees should be commonplace. Plus how Congress woman, Marjorie Taylor Greene got what she deserved. But first last week, U S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen met with SEC and CFTC regulators to discuss the recent events surrounding game stop. In an interview with ABC News, she said, this certainly we're looking carefully at these events. We really need to make sure it's in our financial markets are functioning properly efficiently and that investors who protected Bloomberg opinion columnist near Case our rights that lawmakers and regulators are in danger of learning the wrong lessons from the game stop saga, but it's not too late to correct course he's here to tell us more. Do you think the focus on the game stops saga is unnecessary. It looks to me like it is. I mean, certainly if there's been wrongdoing, if rules broken in the process of all this, then you know that should be investigated and people should be held to account. Certainly. But you know when you look at all the process being made about it, um, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, you know, convened the top regulators us last week, and both the Senate and the house are promising Hold hearings about all this. So you have to ask yourself why? You know why all the fun, you know, markets are fine. You know, it doesn't appear to be any spillover effect of the broader stock market or the bond markets or anything else. That doesn't appear to be any problems. FINANCIAL stability. Northern's Gamestop itself of the stock appear to be an outline in any meaningful way. I mean, it's been obviously spent on a wild ride. There's been a lot of authorities stocking the last A couple of weeks, but no more than a handful of other stocks that are getting no no attention at all. Um and also, you know, people are making a lot about the fact that it's become disconnected from front of men from the so called fundamentals. You know, it's cash flow is gonna make any money with is not unique, but his cash flow and other measures of a company's health, you know, But when you look at it in the broader context of fact that are trading on the market, it doesn't seem unique in that regard, either. So there's just no tangible explanation. You can point to to say yes, we have a problem on our hands, and it requires the attention of government regulators and selling, so we're hearing a lot of talk about protecting the investor. With the game stop saga. That's right. And that's really where my concern is. You know, there's an old caricature that just won't go away retail investors, his rooms and fool that have to be protected, kept away from markets for their own protection. And so on. And you know when I when I When I look at this game stop saga and I see all the stuff that's being made. I can't point anything tangible. I often fear that What will happen is regulated will come in lawmakers will come in and they'll clamp down on retail investors. And what I hope will come out of this game stops. Saga is nothing else. Is that AJ's that you know this idea that retail investors are not fit to manage their own money and to participate? Market will go away. Finally, because because what this has exposed is at the very least. Painting recount messes with such a broad brushes in the steak, because clearly some segment of them as we have seen, were able to take on very sophisticated has funds and winning that game and I was, I would say that it goes, It goes well deeper than that. You know, retail investors in recent years have gone to low cost index funds and big numbers. You know, by all accounts during the selloff in March of last year, they better so hang on their investment. They didn't go running for the hills. So I think retail investors are a lot more sophisticated than we give them credit for. And I think we should. We should sort of follow the roads the democratization and make make access to markets broader, not more restricted. Well, Do you think that the studies that are going to be done and they're going to be committee hearings on this? Do you think that would lead to exactly the opposite? Of opening the markets to more retail investors. Well, I worry that it will only because that's often the way it goes. You know, usually when you hear when you hear, you know, lawmakers and regulators talk about investor protection, you know investors code word for retail investors. You know, there's a clampdown is never on so called sophisticated investors and Tuchel investors and sort of the money set. So that's really the rift and I think the way that you can sort ameliorate that risk. Who's to say, You know, whatever That was whatever we're going to do, let's do it based on some evidence. In other words, Um, let's let's Let's see, you know who has been hurt in this game Stop saga. Has anyone even been hurt? You know, there is no one. No one has really even come up with credible stories where there's been real damage, But let's assume that there has been who's who's uh When I say that you and I mean to retail investors. Clearly some hedge funds is taking it on the chin. But But he said that there has been damaged who's been hurt? Has it been retail investors? Why did it happen? Whatever measures that we can put in place in order to protect them? I think if we if we follow that evidence based exercise, I I suspect that we will get to a place where we will discover that nothing needs to be done here. Markets are really working the way they should. So then do you think that all the people who are saying this is just Wall Street stopping Main Street when they're on a roll that they're right? You know, it's hard to know in this particular context, because there's so much that we don't know. But the problem is, there is a lot of historical context for that, and you can understand why that feeling is there. I mean, First of all, you know they're the baked into our securities laws. Is this concept that retail investors shouldn't have full access the market? I mean, retail investor in general can invest in private assets. In general candidates and hedge funds to this day, and so and that goes back. That's a tradition that goes back decades where retail investors have been kept out, and also in this particular game stops saga we have. Unfortunately we have a situation where, where for good reasons or for bad you had the trading act like Robin Hood that prevented the retail investors. Trading in these names for a certain period time while hedge funds of course elsewhere, we're able to do whatever they wanted, and so that continues to sort of feed your the feeling among weekend investors that they're not being given a fair shake. And while well story to say that that's what happened in this case. I think it's certainly understandable where that where that feeling comes.
