"On wednesday. The president's top covert advisors cited a few early studies to make the case for boosters from new york from nursing homes from the mayo clinic. Plus there was some data from israel.

Here's michelle will get. The director of the centers for disease control and prevention on wednesday talking about a mayoclinic analysis of more than eighty thousand vaccinated and unvaccinated. People like we saw in the new york. Dana vaccine effectiveness against infection declined over time. In this case from seventy six percent to forty two percents for those who receive the pfizer vaccine and from eighty six percent to seventy six percents for those who receive. The madonna vaccine are also see that things seem to be holding up against severe disease including hospitalization. More or less which seems great but seems quick which is good. The other thing i see is whenever things are that nuanced. I want to see the whole ishii be process unfold. Who needs the advisory committee on immunization practices. It's a group of fifteen outside advisers. Doctors nurses public health specialists. Who make recommendations to the cdc on vaccines on cova. Yes but on other things too and the committee has a standard deliberative process. That anyone you were me can log on and watch the encouraging thing and something that got lost in a lot of coverage was that the actual verdon of things that came out yesterday was that they are doing this for planning purposes to start with september twentieth bending authorization from fda and bending the advisory committee on immunization practices review.

One that novak. Ceo stanley erc has been running for decades. How close to the finish line do you consider yourself to be at this point But we are close. Maryland-based has been developing. That seems for more than thirty years but has never had one approved and on the market now a possible victory on the horizon as the company mass produces tens of millions of doses of its covid nineteen vaccine confident.

Why Tech Companies Are Limiting Police Use of Facial Recognition

"All right emily kwong so. We're talking about this announcement from a string of tech companies that they are going gonna put limits on their facial recognition technology especially when it comes to law enforcement amazon microsoft and ibm yes on june eighth. Ibm said it would discontinue general purpose facial recognition or analysis software altogether. Get out of the business completely and it made an impression after. Ibm's big letter. Amazon announced a one year moratorium on sales of they're very popular software recognition spelled with a k. To law enforcement to give congress time to implement appropriate rules so a one year ban. Yes microsoft took it a step further saying it wouldn't sell products to law enforcement at all until a federal law is in place. Here's microsoft president. Brad smith speaking to the washington post we need to use this moment to pursue a strong national law to govern facial recognition that is grounded in the protection of human rights and for matali in conde who has been pushing for regulation changes in tech for years. This was a big deal when these words were coming out of silicon valley. She felt all of the feelings. My initial was thank god. Thank god i was. I was happy. I was pleased. I was optimistic. I was short of breath. I was exhausted. Tally is the ceo of ai. For the people a fellow at both harvard and stanford universities for her. These announcements shifted the conversation. But that's about it. So i'm pleased. It's got us incredibly far but we're by no means the woods not out of the woods because for all of the advancement and facial recognition systems. Still get it wrong. They'll incorrectly match folks what's called a false positive or fail to associate the same person to two different images of false negative. Yeah and what's vaccine. Is these errors are happening. More often. when the machines are analyzing dark-skinned faces and that can disproportionally affect already marginalized communities prone to unconscious bias at the hands of law enforcement leading to false accusations arrests and much worse so until there's action on this metallic said words just aren't enough gotcha. So let's unpack this a little bit. Let's talk about how biased gets into facial recognition systems in the first place. I'd love that okay. So it starts right with how the systems learn to do their jobs. A process known as machine learning so to make facial recognition systems engineers feed algorithms large amounts of what's called training data in this case. That would be pictures of human faces. Yes the way machines learn is that they repeat task again and again and again and again and again developing a statistical model for what a face is supposed to look like so if you wanted to teach the algorithm to recognize a man you'd put in like millions of pictures of men you got it. The machine will then measure the distance between the eyes on each picture the circumference of the nose for example the ear to measurement and over time the machine starts to be able to predict whether the next image it seeing is quote a man which sounds okay right here comes the but but the machine is only a smart as its training data so remember joy ghulam weenie who i mentioned at the top of the episode. Yeah the the mit yes. So she and her colleague timid gabe developed a way to skin color in these training sets and the two they looked at were overwhelmingly composed of lighter skinned subjects. Seventy nine percent for ibi dash a and eighty six percent. For etienne's these are two common data sets that were largely as joy. Put it pale and male. So basically the training data used to create these algorithms is not diverse. And that's how that bias gets in The diversity of human beings is not always being represented in these training sets and so faces outside the systems norm. sometimes don't get recognized. Here's matala explaining what the research meant to her. That goes back to this other issue of not just hiring but a bigger issue of those no one in the team to say that you haven't put all the faces you haven't put all the digital images of all human beings could look like in the way that they sharpen society in order to recognize these faces. And it's so. After realizing how unbalanced these training sets were joy intimidate decided to create their own with equality in race and gender to get a general idea of how facial ai systems performed with a more diverse population so basically they fed it more diverse pictures to to look at. Yeah it was kind of interesting. They used images from the top ten national parliaments in the world with women in power specific yes specifically picking african and european nations and they tested this new data against three different commercially available systems for classifying gender one made by ibm the second microsoft and the third by face plus plus an running these tests joint him knit found clear discrepancies gender and racial lines with darker skinned faces getting mis classified the most. Here's mut-ali again. So one of the things that joy blue armies amazing work looks. That is the coloration between short hair and gender so many many many black women with afros where mislabeled as men mis gendered because the system had trained itself to recognize short hair as a male trait and this research project mattie produced a massive ripple effect further studies legislation in december the national institute of standards and technology or nist published a big paper of its own testing one hundred eighty nine facial recognition algorithms from around the world and they found biases to looking at one global data set some algorithms in their study produced one hundred times more false positives with african and asian faces compared to eastern european ones and when tested using another data set of mug shots from the us. The highest false positives were found among american indians with higher rates in african american and asian populations again depending on the algorithm. Wow yeah that is not what you want from your data. And i'm guessing white. Men benefited from the highest accuracy rates. Yes they did now. The knicks study did conclude that the most accurate algorithms demonstrated far less demographic bias but for multi. This evidence of bias raises a bigger question about the ethics of relying on. Ai systems to classify and police at all the problem with ai. Systems machine learning is that they're really really really good at standard routine tasks and the issue with humans is that we are not standard. We're not routine. Were actually massively messy right. We're not the same but when a police officer searches face in the system. They're not making arrests based on just spat match alone are they. Oh absolutely not. Yeah it's a tool for identifying potential suspects but if you think about how there's already implicit bias in policing critics. A facial recognition are basically saying. It doesn't make sense to embrace technologies riddled with bias to right if all this research has shown. These tools are capable of misidentifying black people. We cannot use biometric tools that discriminate against a group of people who are ready discriminated against within the criminal justice system but policing most specifically mattie. When i first spoke to mut-ali in march she was open to moratoriums on facial. Recognition like amazon is doing buying time for these systems to improve regulations to be put in place but the protests have her views. Because why why am i being moderate with completely reimagined how we interact with technology so now she wants to see facial recognition banned from law enforcement use which some cities in the us have done. Moutallos has tried to push for legislation to outlaw discrimination in technology before but it seems like now people are paying attention and have a language for talking about structural racism that they just didn't have before whether why america listened to me or not. I was gonna continue with this work. I believe that technology should be an empowering force for all people and that's my work but now having old and new ala not just allies but co-conspirators bright. I'm so happy. Because i didn't think would happen in my lifetime and it's an it's

How to Avoid Becoming a Meal for a Cheetah

"The cheetah is the rarest big cat in africa less than seven thousand adults remain on the planet think of it this way for every cheetah on the planet. There's more than four starbucks. Coffee shops the most important cheetah stronghold is in central namibia but the cheetahs. They're don't live within national parks. They live on privately. Owned farmland. Pharma's having huge problems with cheetahs losing a lot of stuck and there are other farmers who actually didn't have any problem at all ecologists you're melts heimer from the live knits institute for zoo and wildlife research in berlin assumed at first that all farmers had cheetah trouble. It was just that some were more likely to complain about it. But after tracking fifty collared cheetahs he began to suspect that there really was a pattern to their killing by the time his team had data from one hundred six cheetahs colored over the course of a decade. Not only was. He certain that cheetahs were more likely to kill in some places than others but that he could solve the problem. We indeed found. These communication hubs of cheetahs which spread evenly across the landscape with a high activity of cheetahs within the hubs cheetahs. Aren a social species but they still need to trade information. They don't meet physically typically not but they leave marks and prominent lent marks and whether they either use during fees to communicate with each other. Think of it as a coffee shop for cats where animals trade gossip even though these communication hubs only comprise around ten percent of the landscape cheetah. Spend most sometimes all of their time within them. These basically a long-term tradition which is passed on from cheetah generation to cheetah generation Some of these communication hubs basically no-no. Let's say the mocking location. Mocking trees were known by farmers. For sixty seventy years like the grandfather of current farmer already knew the mocking cheese in this area. What the farmers never realized is that only some farms overlap with the cheetahs communication hubs melts. Heimer thought that if those farmers relocated their most vulnerable herds. It could be a huge help. Here remembers the first farmer. He tried to convince and i told him. Look wilfred i have. I have the idea that they are actually there because of these mocking trees. And you happen to have your small shops accepting the same area. Let's try to move your herds out of this area and and keep them somewhere else and then let's measure the losses. And he was laughing at me said i can nice idea but i'm not sure whether it's going to work. They would probably follow the cast so we tried this. Actually it worked and he. He earned much money because he lost less cavs. After that thirty-five more farmers agreed to try it out in all the number of calves to cheat. Predation fell by a whopping eighty six percent. Of course some cattle outside of communication hubs were still lost. The cheetah's but it was at a low enough level that most farmers seem to tolerate it. What this means is that. Cheetahs aren't actively following the cattle. They simply take advantage of whatever food is available nearby. If it's not cattle then they go after. Wild ungulates springbok orix or coup. There are no so called problem. Cheetahs who intentionally seek out cattle instead there are problem areas. That's a much easier problem to solve. And it's one that doesn't result in farmers killing cheetahs melts. Heimer is now hard at work collecting tracking data from cheetahs in other parts of africa to see whether his findings hold up in other ecosystems so often it seems as if the goals of wildlife conservation are incompatible with the goals of commerce but this story reveals that infect biodiversity and agriculture can coexist allocates is really one of these nice example which can go hand in

How Quibi crashed and burned so quickly

"So equity was always the odd duck all the new streaming services that immersive last year for just for listeners who don't stand top of the streaming rewards just give quick description of what could be is and what's happened to it. Quimby was a mobile initially mobile only than kind of transition to be mobile centric streaming video service. That made cereal like tv. In very short episodes everything was like ten minutes or last and it was very very expensive programming. They made big budget programming with really big stars. So it's pitch was that it was kind of like a curated. Youtube only with like the biggest and brightest of hollywood involved. The problem is they launched the service that was designed to be watched. Moberly on the go in those like brief much of your day where you have a spare ten minutes to watch something getting coffee. Waiting for us. Launched it at the beginning of all the lockdowns keeping people trapped in their homes so they had a mobile on the ghost service launching when nobody was mobile or on the go. That's one of the problems with but there's underlying consideration that. The premise of the service given that people already have youtube and they can watch other things on the go to netflix on the go on their mobile phones that the premise of this being a service at all was flawed from the beginning. So what's happened. At least as far as we know right now is that would be instead of trying to survive after six months is going to just shut down. We don't know exactly win but at some point the service is going to go dark and this programming is going to. I don't exactly know what's going to happen. So all this stuff that they made. Yeah i wanna get into that but it just. It's interesting just sort of looking at the background of their the foundation that this company was built on one point. Seven billion dollars in funding of meg. Whitman from hewlett packard. Lots of a-list talent But medina think looking back at this now it was was the model just fundamentally or was it just a matter. Bedtime may and launching in the middle of a pandemic. i remember maybe even before they had a name. I believe they katzenberg jeffrey katzenberg. The hollywood Whitman as you mentioned the ceo of the service they went to south by and they had this whole presentation. And i remember coming out of this presentation being like these people have no idea what they're getting into you know. They had really really ambitious goals. They talked a really big game but they're getting into something. That is really hard to break into going up against something like youtube. Which has two billion people watching it every month. So that's one way to kind of put in perspective whether or not the pandemic was the real. You know silver bullet that killed qube but also mentioned that i did. I did a poll on twitter. Asking people this exact question because they make whitman. Jeffrey kassenberg worth open letter. The apologized for disappointing. Their investors their workers their talent and they said in there. You know it we may never know what was the problem here was timing or was this a bad idea to begin with and so i had a poll on twitter quoting that portion of the letter and saying well which was it could be equals a bad idea or timing and i think eighty six percent of people could be was just a bad idea to begin with so

"Hawaii imports more than eighty five percent of its food. So extreme weather disrupt shipping. It could have serious consequences for the state. You just kinda grow up knowing that we only have like a week of food on the shelves and if the barge doesn't come wearing in big trouble that's natalie courage shema while a phd student. At the university of hawaii. She studied whether indigenous farming methods could help reduce this food insecurity especially as the climate changes. I always wondering how can we learn from our iki. Kupuna extra knowledge to address of i-it's sustainability issues. Today she says before colonization indigenous farmers grew crops in areas. That people today would not they. Farmed terraced land that had to be flooded during cultivation and grew roof. Ish ables under banana and coconut trees. Those methods were productive. She studies suggest that they could have produced enough food for eighty six percent of hawaii's current population. So if implemented today indigenous farming methods could make hawaii's food system more resilient to extreme weather and help the state sustain itself in the future as it did in the past.

There was some news yesterday about potential issues. Yeah that's right so in the uk there now. Recommending that people prone to severe reactions shouldn't get the vaccine for now. The regulators are investigating a couple instances of allergic reactions and people who got the vaccine on tuesday and there hasn't been a ton of information on exactly what kinds of allergic reactions may be red flags. So tb there but canada approved the visor vaccine yesterday. So if there's more information on the safety of it and people with allergies forthcoming in a conversation with sanjay gupta on cnn. Yesterday dr fauci that this complication may affect a large amount of people. It went on to say quote. If i were a person that had an underlying allergic tendency. I might want to be prepared. That i might get a reaction and therefore be ready to treat it. So i guess. Have some benadryl or your epi pen on deck. That's where we're at but to end on a hopeful note found. She did say that the other vaccines may be able to account for this rarest sort of side effect that is great to hear and then on that note. What is the latest on other vaccines all right next week. The moderna vaccine will undergo the same fda review process as the pfizer vaccine and the united arab emirates approved vaccine out of china. Yesterday that vaccine is said to be eighty six percent effective and could be much more affordable route for smaller countries versus one shipped out from america. The details around the vaccine beyond that are kind of murky. Though chinese officials and a farm the state owned maker of the vaccine or silent yesterday. Don't want heard anything from them.

UK and Germany's different approaches to the pandemic

"The UK and Germany are both leading democracies and not far apart on the globe. They took very different approaches to the pandemic with very different results the UK as suffered the most covid nineteen deaths in Europe Germany with a much bigger population has lost far fewer people. NPR's correspondent in each country rob Schmitz in Berlin and Frank Langfitt in London had been talking among themselves. Hey Rob Frank. So tell me what happened in the UK. were. So many mistakes a big reason is the government honestly doesn't really seem to think ahead Boris Johnson you remember he sold Brexit to the British people in two thousand sixteen with no plan on how to execute it. So in the virus began spreading here Johnson course he's now prime minister. He was slow to recognize the threat here he is on March Third I was at movie night. where I think the rush if you credit ours patience and I shook hands of everybody. So by April Johnson an icy ICU covid nineteen I was talking to you in Boyd he's a member of the scientific group that advises the government. The UK didn't really grasped the speed with which the epidemic was entering the country under are all sorts of reasons for that, some of which are to. Lack of organisational capability sometimes when there's very high uncertainty, you simply have to shut things down really quickly and frank here in. Germany. That's what they did on January twenty seven. The first known case of coronavirus was sent to Clemson ventner chief physician at the Munich Schwab in clinic we have very similar like the boys gall. Be always prepare. Then you're watched what was happening in Italy in January where the virus was spreading pretty fast and we knew that we have to flatten the curve. So even before the first case of Covid nineteen and Germany, he was working on slowing its progress and he says the German government was involved from day one asking us what do you need we? We? We didn't have to ask them for example, Germany already had a big supply of ICU beds clouds Deutsche is at the Federation of German. You know that it's been a long debate on whether we had too many intensive care beds that warned us that often obviously that debate is over Deutsche says, Germany also has a lot of hospitals. If you take all the beds in all of Germany's hospitals, you get four times more per capita than what the UK has rob. You had slack in your system in Germany there. Was Not much here because the government had been cutting funding to the National Health Service for years, the hospitals were afraid of getting swamped with Cova patients. So they sent elderly patients back to nursing homes some broad cove with them infected other residents at least twenty, thousand nursing home residents died of covid. That's terrible in while in Germany, deaths were prevented through testing and contact tracing. The health authority in Berlin district of Hong, Kong and operator talks to man at conduct with a positive case, there are around four hundred call centers like this across Germany Peters directs this one become Austin We have traffic wardens and librarians working for us. We've recruited gardeners from parks and recreation Germany had a lot of manpower and testing to infrastructure filled with labs and university medical centers across the country. You know here the government misread the corona virus they thought it was going to spread as quickly as the flu. They didn't even try to develop a testing system where we steward he's a former British cabinet minister they were very, very confident. And slightly arrogant neb beliefs that they understood this disease better than other countries, I think the lack of scientific education amongst a lot of the British political elite meant that they were very reluctant to challenge scientists but here, Germany. Frank. A trained scientist is at the helm and Chancellor Angela Merkel. gave one of the most powerful and heartfelt speeches in her life when she made a rare national address on March. Eighteenth dusted fees above in then. Comes here. I have absolutely no doubt that we will overcome this crisis. How many victims will it claim? How many loved ones lose to a large extent? The answer lies in our own hands miracle has a doctorate in quantum chemistry, and in another speech, she patiently explain how important it was for Germany to reduce the viruses reproduction rate. Her tone was always humble and deadly serious. I'm. Doing this Icefield is off that. We are thin ice. This is a situation in which caution not over-confidence is the order of the day it really different here Johnson studied classics at Oxford University. He was president the debating society and as Prime Minister he's tried to rally the country with rhetoric. We must act like any wartime government and do whatever it takes to support our economy Johnson's Ori helped win a landslide election last year, but a pandemic, of course, not a campaign. Here's where. We store again he sees himself as somebody who is encouraging a rugby team for nineteen minute match telling them that fantastic to make them play. Well, he doesn't primarily see himself as somebody whose job is to get into uncomfortable details were chew over policy and strategy but frank, it's this chewing over of policy and strategy. This technocratic nature of the German government that may have also contributed to Germany's success hunts could is senior research fellow at Chatham House this sort of doubling down on technocracy. Populism has now been discredited by the Corona Virus. He says, that's potentially dangerous. If technocrats feel too emboldened, there might be an even bigger growth populist backlash in the future some people will blame Johnson for Britain's handling of covid campaigner. He thinks Johnson's more symptoms than 'cause captors just written a book called why the Germans do it better notes from grownup country. We've descended into believing that somehow because we always muddled through in the past muddling through is a recipe that will get us through in the future. So rob where's Germany now with crow verse? Well cases are rising deaths are not that tells us these new cases are from young people, children across the country are back in classrooms, but the German government seems so far. Okay. With the dangers of this, there remains a strong infrastructure of hospital beds, testing, tracing Germany fields, prepared and Chancellor Angela Merkel's popularity ratings are sky high eighty, six percent. WOW cases rising rapidly to we've got new strictures but Johnson actually had trouble explaining them to the nation recently the last surveys Ron Johnson is under forty percent approval rating testing capacity here still can't meet demand. And Winter's coming. NPR London correspondent Frank Langfitt, and Berlin correspondent. Rob? Schmitz.

"They decide to skip yes but couple of things right now smackdown does about eighty six percent of what raw does and smackdown literally since the day it debuted has always been pushed as the b show show and one of the keys to this is it airs immediately like the next day after raw and if you're watching the three hours of raw like the show airing the next day that's hard but if you've got a one day buffer in between i don't think that any of these shows are going to have any effect on any of the other shows you got a full day's break in between ron and exte- and you've got a full day's break between annex t and dan smackdown now annex t the last time they aired on the u._s._a. Network they did less than nine hundred thousand viewers. I i think they're going to do about a million. I expect that smackdown fox is going to be two and a half million so that's two and a half times. More fans are probably going to be watching smackdown anyway so i guess maybe you could have some sort of effect on it but annex t at this point is still largely going to be an x t the annex t we stars smackdown is going to have roman reigns and brock lizards going to be there and the undertaker is going to be there. I mean for the fans for the a casual network audience. I mean those those are big names. That's must see show so. I don't think it's going to affect it's possible but i just think with the day a buffer in between and the difference in star power between the shows. I think smackdown is going to be fine. I think it will be to again. It's the star power it's on fox fox priority so obviously not the next seas not but fox and smack down is a little bit of a different memorial special story than anything. They're doing the next on <hes> u._s._a. So now. I wouldn't worry about it too much again. If there's going to be fatigue i think you know. I think it's going to be taken out on an x._t. Not taken out on smackdown per says. Do you think takeover will stand the network or maybe clash of the champions style specials on u._s._a. They already announced takeovers are exclusive to the network takeovers will be on the network and exte- st is on u._s._a. Eight to ten to live on u._s._a. Network and the replay layer on thursdays network at eight eastern now what i could see z. could see in the end. This is just speculation. Too is depending on what's on on saturday night if you wanted to have our pre show to lead into the network or something like that depending on what u._s._a. Had planned for saturday night. I couldn't theory see that happening. I could see a replay of an awesome takeover. Show happening down the line nine to be put up there. You know as a special on u._s._a. Or something like that. I could actually see that coming down the line. Go to the phones. You're on the air what's going on. Hey brian. I'm convinced of the new book really really enjoyed it. Thank you hey. I got a question so if you were you're on. The roster of say are always or impact. How would you feel about this. Annex v i mean is there. How would you feel about annexed become become u._s._a. Network is this a good thing or are you shaking your boots right now. If i were a wrestler in our wage salivating writing i mean there's there's two ways to look at it davis. Here's here's here's a to waste. Look at it. Okay so if you're a wrestler and you've got like a three year deal with ring of honor honor. I would be shaking in my boots. If you're a wrestler and you've got like three months left on your deal i would be very excited because the reality is our wages already struggling and this is before these wednesday night warriors with another four hours of programming hit..

I mean at the end of the day this is just this this is a complete lack of understanding but was a lack of data and so what motor city city mapping did in that process to catalog over three hundred thousand properties in Detroit as we got the data understand what was going on and now somebody started to pay attention well it will right after doing this is to try it reached a fourteen year low for overall property tax for closures and that's a huge win and when I first heard about you guys doing this I just thought it was really wonderful that you were doing this in fact let's talk about what this is right the brought it to fourteen year low so go ahead Alex sure so what what what we identified was that it was an enormous lack of information not not just amongst the you know people observing the city but people who are going through tax for closure themselves they didn't know what tools programs and options were available to them you know every every year tax foreclosure every fall there's a foreclosure auction where properties that haven't paid taxes for three years go into the foreclosure auction and for years there were kind of last minute efforts to get to the few thousand properties that we're facing foreclosure that fall which is a little like trying to treat someone for a disease in the emergency room right it's at the doorstep the last possible moment that you can intervene you know the situation has progressed at that point you have very few little time very few options and everything that you try to do is more expensive so we said is you know we don't need to wait three years to go ask someone behind on their property taxes if they need help we know you know to to stick with the health care and out we know the moment they're exhibiting a fever right we know that they when they miss their first tax bill that something's going on so we don't need to then wait three years we should go to every property that's behind on property taxes any amount knock on the door with a trusted community partner deliver information to that resident based on the relationship to the property because if you're an owner versus a renter versus a land contract holder there are different things that you should do so we created a program called neighbor to neighbor we work with thirty community organizations around the city who hire residents from their neighborhood with grant funding provided by us we train those residents on how to do door knocking two homes that are behind on their property taxes they use the the love when technologies mobile apps a map that we used in motorcity mapping and they knock on the door of every everyone of the sixty thousand Detroit homes that are behind on property taxes Alex also director of housing stability quicken loans community fund a little bit more read information about how quicken loans is so very much involved in the community and saving the community thanks Alex for being with us thank you so much for having me as we continue.

"Or call idiot eight five five six eleven best, you know, some of the very best IPO's over the last several years. Two of the best have been visa and MasterCard, you can look up, how those stocks have done since they went public and people are always asking me, what's the next hot thing. Well, a company by the name of square went public in two thousand and fifteen and square went public. Let's see, I wanna say about ten dollars per share somewhere in there. This was Jack Dorsey of their businesses. First business was Twitter. He is the mastermind the whatever you wanna call it behind the Twitter platform square is a point of sale software that manages receipts inventories sales reports with analytics feedback except for square went public in two thousand fifteen at ten dollars per share today at seventy one dollars and forty six cents per share, and it's been over one hundred dollars along the way. And it's had very consistent sales growth of about forty to fifty percent per year. And if you looked at their last four quarters of earnings growth, plus eighty six percent, plus eighty six percent again, plus seventy five percent and plus eighty three percent. So not only have you had phenomenal sales growth. That square you've also had phenomenal earnings growth. And there's a story out today that squares cash out download growth, outpaces ven MO and of course, then MO is pay pals. Equivalent of square competitor, then MOS year over year growth dramatically slowed while squares came in a hotter than expected rate. I continue to own both of those stocks, then or not then MO but pay pal and spoiler and scores out a nice little bounce recently. It was kind of just I dunno testing its support levels here over the last several months. But all of a sudden squares moving in the right direction. I've seen earnings estimates moving higher for square and the stock following those earnings. Expectations is also been moving higher. It's thirty billion dollar company, currently trading at seventy one dollars and fifty cents and I do own square at Garson capital management. Speaking of Jack Dorsey. See his other company Twitter which has not been scores. Been a much better performer than Twitter has Twitter went public at about eighteen twenty dollars a share today. It's thirty six dollars a share. It has not been a very good performer over the years. Now, they're doing a better job recently of monetize ING Twitter, but it's still not a stock that shows up in my valuation, and momentum screens. And there's a report out today, Moffitt Nathanson, as trimming their price targets. They're becoming more bearish on Twitter. I do not own Twitter stock the stock is down three point eight percent today but I do own door sees other ventures square I went fishing when I first arrived here took a win out with a fishing guide. See, I'm not a guy that's in the water every day. I am in the stock market, but not in the red fish market. Man, he put us on some red fish. You cannot believe in fact, Paul, I've been working on a little painting here. Let's see if I've got it of my son in law holding about a ten pound redfish. See how, yeah we caught about six or seven of those guys. And boy, I'll tell you help to have a fishing. But the point of the story when I was all done fishing. He says a lot of before hundred dollars plus a tip, which I knew of front, I wasn't carrying four hundred but he says, no problems. Just give me your credit card scandal with his iphone. We're out in the water still bang, four fifty plus a healthy tip. You know, I gave him a dollar tip. You know, uh Scandinavians. No, I gave my healthy tip for leading us to some trophy, fish, and one of the best fishing trip live ever had in my entire life. And I do use the product called square. Is there a day that goes by that there's not bad news on Facebook? I'm starting to wonder about my hey the stock is up today. It is. It's a bad chart, and it's an excellent value and their earnings have been growing by seventy two percent per year. But it just seems like Zuckerberg can't avoid bad news now Facebook they've uncovered emails seem to connect CEO's occur Burke to a knowledge of questionable privacy practices. This could present a new public relations that snafu for a company that's endured a long string of them. Yeah. Boy, howdy. I watched a lot of them. I haven't took a long break from Facebook hoping they could get their act back together. I currently do on Facebook. But now they're saying that Zuckerberg is back at it again, or he was volved in a cover up something going on there. And the stock is having a very good day. However, it's one point two percent. I think at the end of the day, it goes back to earnings earnings are expected to go up thirty two percent this year, Facebook and over the last five years earnings of seventy two percent per year. So it just seems like it's a necessary evil, but they're tech crunch is leaving the Facebook used a now defunct app together, personal and sensitive device data on about one hundred eighty seven thousand users, the bulk of those users were in India. That information, which Clinton include their web browsing history. They're encrypted messages and mobile activity came via Facebook research app, which was banned from the app store earlier this year. So tell you what they just can't to void bad press over there at Facebook. There was a big IPO yesterday. I kept my I on this one crowd strike, and I added it to the app this morning. Now it takes about three months of trading activity before we can get a ranking on the stock. It looks like it's not one that will be will do a valuation on because as of now there aren't any earnings estimates there, aren't there, isn't any analyst. Following. But there will be once that quiet period ends, I'm looking at their sales growth over the last four years, or four quarters sales up seventy seven percent hundred nine percent hundred forty nine one hundred eight so I have earmarked this one to keep my I on it. See our WD. Here's the impressive part about this stock. It's already a thirteen billion dollar company. All right. So this is not a startup. It is a security software company out of Sunnyvale, California already thirteen billion dollars market cap. It had a big debut yesterday. At forty dollars. A share today at sixty three dollars a share this is one definitely keep your eye on crowd strike. It was up eighty seven percent yesterday on the IPO. Well, there's a couple of debt offerings. We'll see if we have any interest in those, and then are featured stock of the day produce.

They release how much money they're spending, how much money they're earning. They talk about their profits and they talk about their outlook for the coming three months and Wall Street analysts pay close attention to what's going on collumnist around the country are devoted to these earnings calls as they're known as to see what's on the minds of these chief executives, and what is this mean for the American economy? Well, here's a fascinating statistic for you so far this year. Eighty six percent of the companies in the SNP five hundred have repurchased, their own stock the chief executives of the S and P five hundred have each said eighty six percent of them, so of the five hundred companies four hundred thirty of them. Have said, we're making so much money we have so much money. We don't know what to do that. And we've only got three choices we can reinvest the money back into our business. We can engage in research and development. We can launch new products. We can open new markets. We can just invest the money in the business. Forget already doing a lot of that. We still have money leftover. Well, we could send the money back to our shareholders. It's called a dividend. That's what dividends are its share the profits of the business with the owners of the business. Now, we don't want to do that. We're already sending out dividends in many cases, and we don't want to send out more dividends are usually a routine FANG and this is a one time thing. We don't wanna do that. Well, what's left to do with it? There's only one other choice, invest the money you spend it on your business. You give it to your shareholders or you invest it. Okay. Great. What investment shall we buy, and they have concluded that the very best stock to buy? Is their own. Again. Now, this is on one hand a very bullish sign. Meaning this is a very optimistic signs, very good news. If the chief executive of your company says, we've got a ton of cash, we don't need, and we are looking to invest it, and we have scoured the landscape. And we've concluded that the very best investment opportunity. We have is to buy the shares of our own company company stock is the best possible investment. We can think to make. Wow, that's a pretty strong. Sign a confidence. And if I were an investor, if I were a consumer looking to invest money in the stock market, and I had the CEO of IBM or the CEO of delta, or the CEO of Johnson and Johnson, or the CEO of name your favorite stock saying are extensive analysis, as concluded that we are the best investment possible that might give me reason to piggyback his activities to ride his cO tells to follow in his footsteps cliches, can I come up with and invest in their stock to wait a minute. There are five hundred companies in the s&p five hundred they're.

"Eighty six percent. Yeah. Trump now stands in a public opinion, where Nixon did after the Senate hearings after John dean and others, testified after the Nixon tapes were exposed, Trump popularity is the worst and weakest of any president ever recorded since the beginning of polls, charting presidential approval ratings. He's the most consistently unpopular president in modern recorded history in Clinton's case, the charges of impeachment were transparently partisan and origin, twisted, and insubstantial inconsistently rejected by the vast majority of the public, not a single White House official or close associate involved in these events was indicted, not one in Trump's case over eight hundred our two thousand right, former metro prosecutors stated if he were not a sitting president, he would have been indicted for obstruction of Justice on multiple felony. Charges already seven Trump White House officials seven campaign buyers and close associates have been indicted, or convicted these are all great points. Right. Just I was looking at them screaming about the, you know. The do holding airings impeachment. Whatever Benghazi went on for three years zero charges zero conviction zero. They're there, but that hurt Hillary Clinton politically. Don't let them tell you this isn't going to hurt Trump politically, of course, it is the differences in, in, in this case, there is a lot of their, their right in Benghazi whitewater, and all of that there was no there there. Okay, one at no point during the Clinton impeachment did public approval of impeachment ever climb out of the thirties, while disapproval remained unwaveringly constant about two-thirds opposition more or less the same level as Clinton's approval, couldn't remain the most consistently popular president in his second term, since President, Eisenhower, second. The Nixon experience reveals the combination of concerted aggression congressional inquiry, public airings that release of information and Nixon, snow stonewalling steadily. Drove his numbers down the more. The public knew of Nixon's crime through public televised hearings the more rapidly Nixon's poll numbers crumbled. I mean, the fact that we've gone from seventeen to forty five percent of the American public majority are already for impeachment without one hearing. Yeah. The word poll showing forty five percent support for impeachment, when there are no impeachment committee before any congressional hearings of witnesses shows the start of a trend of declining approval as the Trump crisis deepens the opposite of the Clinton dynamic. Yeah. And he says, and he goes on to just finish by saying, Trump is no less paranoid vindictive, the Nixon, if he seems to be taunting. The Democrats to impeach him is a desperate desperate act of miscalculation. That's what I keep saying. We keep thinking he has some smart music. Yeah. He is a Dopp dotted, his stonewalling sheer necessity in order to maintain its survival throughout his career following the vice of his early attorney ROY Cohn, he has adopted the strategy of resisting quarter suing everyone to put them on the defensive, he's been playing for time since he first hired ROY Cohn. Now, perhaps he imagines an impeachment will suit his tail of himself as a victim, and his tag is unfair. But that was also the psychology underlying Nixon's political strategy in Watergate, Trump. Proceeds from a much weaker position. The Nixon depends entirely. On his stonewalling. He hangs by thread on. Thank you severe physical out cap the witch hunt with all his all cap letters would lead the surge for impeachment Lindsey Graham and go back into time machine old Lindsey Graham, and we pull him back into the future and go. A president doesn't even need to do if he just has to be not suitable with right. That Lindsey, right? All right. That's the way I respectfully say, I think police PLC's wrong.

"All you have to do is dial pound two five zero and say the keyword money. Taxes has been the topic of our discussion on the show today. It is the middle of tax season after all super important topic. Because you wanna make sure you're making the right choices here, Jim, and Dan you've been covering some of the mistakes that people often make when it comes to their taxes. And I know that those mistakes are probably on the increase with all the changes lately. What else do we need to know this year? I think when you talk about taxes a lot of people, then are so afraid of taxes that they're leaving their money in the stock market or mutual funds with a lot of risk simply because. Was there freaked out that they're gonna pay a lot of taxes? So we met with a six five year old couple. They have about three million dollars in the portfolio, and is Jim always talks about we actually complete a scientific restress tests for them, and it showed they would lose like a lot of people forty eight point three percent of their assets. If we have another two thousand eight type of stock market loss. Meaning they could lose one point four four nine million dollars of the three million only leaving them with one point five five one million, basically half. How would someone feel Jim if that happened? And then how do they feel once you reveal this type of data to them? Obviously, you'll feel terrible. There'll be feel devastated in particularly if you're retired. You don't have recovery time. And a lot of listeners are thinking oh that poor person. But I would think a lot of the year listeners are in exactly the same position. I mean, you just haven't had a risk test taken. We've had ten years of a bull market run. We had a little bit of a hiccup in December. But it was nothing. More than a hiccup. The market came back. People are feeling all the market will come back every time. It doesn't come back. Every time this quickly only in about fourteen percent of the time to rebound this quickly. The other eighty six percent of the times it goes down in down down for a long period of time in. Indeed, if you did not or do not happy risk task on your portfolio. You could be just like this client loses much or more of the market. Exactly. Well, their CPA and brokers said don't sell the portfolio because you're gonna get killed taxes. They even define what that meant. This don't sell it. So of course, the people are freaked out. They don't wanna pay the taxes when we ran in analysis attacks now, so we found out that if they sell their portfolio to de risk it the taxes are going to represent a three point three three percent loss of their three million dollar portfolio. So we then ask them specifically we quantify would you rather lose forty eight point three percent over you rather lose three point three three percent. And guess what? When they chose Jim. They were smart smart point, three three. That's right. So we lose a little bit now. And you always tell people guess what you're going to probably use some of this money in the future in what's going to happen when they use the money a future. Anyway, they have to pay taxes, and that is hopefully based on that they don't have a huge loss along the way either. Right, right. So we did then the now, and it showed that every year for this couple like the other people were talking about earlier they have to report one hundred and fifty thousand dollars of dividends Catholic gain distributions and Cabanes of tasks blink on their return. So ultimately that's going to now increase their taxes every single year if they don't derive their portfolio and get it into more a favorable type of plan. So we are able to work together you, and I put together we reduce their risk from an estimated forty point three percent all the way down to two point seven percent, which was acceptable to them. And we then reduce taxable income on the three million dollars from one hundred fifty thousand dollar portfolio taxation down to just fifteen thousand portfolio taxation. So how'd that work for him? Dynamic and again, most advisers can't do this Ray, Dan because they don't have a tax background. They don't have tasks certifications are not enrolled agents are not CPA's. And so what happens you deal with an adviser in there, really really nice person and our knowledgeable about the investment. But they don't understand the taxes nor can they provide tax advice legally, they cannot provide tax advice. So you'd have to go to your CPA. But then you're she has no idea what you're the financial manager doing the money the money. So you inbetween, and plus you have to pay your CPA, but you don't want to do. And you don't even understand the question to ask him. And all of a sudden, you go through life, and you pay all this money and all these taxes, you have no idea what you're doing. Because of all that most people then don't do anything that. Right. And then they stay in the market take the risk continue to pay taxes continue to pay too much in fees, and they get hurt. So if you have.

The risk of open surgery, which can be devastating as you know, or you could come here in a void radical surgery have a higher success rate higher chance of being cancer free, most likely keeping the sex life in urinary life is such a difference while this man had surgery because he trusted his surgeon said to say the surgeon did the biopsy, and he thought the surgeon was giving them the best advice to the surgeon never really told them. The best advice had the surgery, and guess what? He was left impotent. That means no more reckons. He was left incontinent. That means no control of the year leaking urine for all these years sixteen years, and now a rising PSA and only now is he told by the surgeon the PSA was up, and it was a sign of the cancer coming back, but we got documents actually going back more than three years in this fans PSA has been going up for three years. It was three years zero point eight nine. Than it was ten that. It was six point seven and the ten was the most recent one. So this fans PSA has been going up up up for more than three years, and he was never told. It was a sign of recurrence. The doctor kept telling them everything's ok well, that's another issue. Let's say issue because this man now has damage to sex life damage to his urinary life from that surgery. And that radical robotic surgery didn't care him the PSA's been going up, and the certain tell him that the PSA going up is a sign of the cancer coming back who said everything's okay. But everything's not. Okay. And men even men who have radical surgery have had a chance a second chance if they come here for focused radiation. And finally this man heard through radio listeners like you that he should come here to get a second opinion. And that's why he came this is a man who wants to live. He does not wanna die of cancer. Does not want to have metastases. There's more than forty thousand. A year dying of prostate cancer. He does not want to be one of them. And he is justifiably upset that he was left so impaired after radical robotic surgery for prostate cancer, and that the cancer wasn't cured. And at the surgeon didn't warn him about the meaning of rising PSA as so what are we doing here today? Well, this is Dr Liederman telling you that if God forbid you had a radical surgery and your PSA is going up. It'd be a very good idea to call us at two one two choices two and two two four six forty two thirty seven to see what can be done to try to give you a second chance. It is. So important us man had an axiom pet scan which is a pet scan very sophisticated pet scan to look for recurrence of prostate cancer. Luckily, it did not show any act of cancer outside the local area. This man's weight is two hundred and two pounds same as two years ago. He's six foot two tall. Majestic man. I examined him his. Zam is unremarkable except is four plus pitting deem of his legs. And I encourage them to be seen by cardiologists because he is most likely in heart failure and his doctor to tell him that either. So we got lots of information by coming to thirteen eighty four Broadway. We staged him up. We got information we got all his questions answered. In fact, he just sent me an E mail today, and you could send me an Email as well. If you have questions by Email, by the way is guilt GAO at our S N Y dot org. Gail GAO at our S N Y dot org. If you have a question why he sent me a note questioning what it should do and his doctor keeps on telling them. There's a spot in the rectum, but I looked at his records, and there's no spot on the rectum, his recurrent cancer because PSA's rising after that radical surgery which left him so impaired. He's in heart failure, he needed to come to a cancer doctor about his heart while that's the work. We do it's one of the benefits of having a doctor who's. Triple board certified here at thirteen four Broadway. Wor except most insurances Medicare Medicaid. Yes. This man wished he'd come to us first. But that's what's so nice about you. And I talking together that you can learn about the options, you can learn what's going on behind closed doors. These men say I'm having surgery on. Well, maybe you can say you might want to get a second opinion before you have that radical surgery. I've heard that there's a big difference between the quality of life with Dr Liederman treatment and radical robotic surgery. There's a big difference in the success rate between Dr LeBron's treatment and radical robotic surgery, and you might wanna learn about it, I because you don't want to be a victim of what this man was a victim of radical robotic surgery and no sex life.

He's not a big you room shat when shack had is sixty points. He had a bunch of REBA. But shack is a be this guy. Six five. Yeah. Any pulling out fifteen rebounds, right? Like last night. I watched myeloma mater Vanderbilt against the number one ranked team in the nation, Tennessee at Vanderbilt and it went to overtime, but that kid for Tennessee's reigning SEC player of the year. Grant Williams, you may twenty. Here's a loaded, but he made twenty he's a big strong kid. He made twenty three of twenty three free throws. That's that's phenomenal believable. The pre any made to clutch wins at the end. So you'd think he'd just wear out mentally just like James, you think at some point you just lose a little concentration at some point. And speaking of lost concentration. This would not have been much of a game except. For p j Tucker's glitch out, I don't know his brain freeze. Did you check this out if we could see this? There's made free throw by trigger an inbounds by Erik Gordon. And I don't know what PJ's doing he just lose. He just goes blank page. I it's your ball. It's your ball in Beth don't touch it. Don't touch. Oh, you want Vaughn lead to to pick it up and lay it in and all of a sudden now down to a one point game. Wow. What are you doing? What I don't know what he's doing on that JR. Joe he somehow got disoriented like mixed up about what was going on. I don't know because it's kind of like a hand off in balanced fast. He just basically drops it at your feet s just just pick it up and poor. Erik Gordon gets charged with a turnover for like the simplest pass. He's ever made in his life hearing. Right. I don't know what he's doing. But without this. It's not much of a game. Eric, gordon? Yeah. I was gonna say doing what are you doing all of a sudden they're in a little bit of trouble off that play? But then who hit the biggest shot of the game? Yes. Who not James harden? Aaron Gordon he just bombed at three and. Just like the lake. Did he mom dad one, man? He is there. I'm not gonna say he's closer. But he's there clutch shot closer, you might he's going to take the last big shot and that brings me back to James heart. This is driving me. Crazy this crazy last night with the Knicks. At what point is some rival coach going to say, you know, what just tonight I'm going to try this. I'm going to blitz him every time he has the ball.
