"Sachs, the fallen bear Stearns, he's written about the duke lacrosse scandal he's written about his friends, his latest subject is General Electric and it is so great to have with us in our Bloomberg interactive broker studio. Bill Cohen, he's a former Wall Street M and a investment banker. I think 17 years. 17. A long time. Financial journalist, he's been writing for who's who a business journalism and more, including business week, he's authored many books several New York Times bestsellers, former Bloomberg contributor, and I think you and I even anchor together at one point. We did. That's a fun time. Good old days. I'll just see myself out and listen to this. His latest book is power failure, the rise and fall of an American icon really delighted to have you in studio. First of all, how are you? I'm great. Thank you. It's great to be here. Great to be back in this building, honestly. It is really great. Right, a long time ago. You've been busy. Tell us about this book. Well, there seems to be a strange pattern going on at Carol like, you know, when I wrote about bear Stearns, there was sort of a metaphorical dead body on the ground, and I wanted to know how it got there. Same thing with the duke lacrosse scandal. Even the Goldman I wanted to know how it avoided death and with GE to me it felt like also there was a dead body on the ground and I wanted to know how it got there. It was sort of like a mystery that I wanted to solve and I felt compelled to solve it. So for some reason I made the crazy decision to go back to 1892, the founding of the company and try to figure out what happened and even from the outset things aren't exactly the way they seem. People think that Thomas Edison was the great founder of GE, but in fact, by the time his company merged with another company, another electric company, Thomas Edison was already out of the picture. He was just a small shareholder of a company that was controlled by JPMorgan and Henry villard with Henry lavar being the CEO. And then it merged with Charles coffin's electric company to form General Electric and Charles coffin became the CEO of the combined company with Edison not even knowing about the merger not wanting the merger and him just like floating off over to New Jersey to create some sort of limestone mining company or something. So right from the outset and then just one more thing because it is darn interesting is that was 1892 and then in 1893 was the big financial crisis and GE almost went bankrupt. And if they didn't buy their debt back at a discount, if this sounds familiar, if they didn't buy their debt back at a discount with permission from JPMorgan, they would have gone bankrupt. So fast forward to today. What we see. What we see with GE today. Deja vu all over again. How would you just wear or when would you describe the turning point into the quote unquote dead body that you see GES today? When did that start to die? Boy, that, of course, is the subject of much debate. So sort of centered around the idea of whether Jack Welch bequeathed Jeff a company that was not nearly as robust as Jack thought it was. Jack thought he had bequeathed them a royal flush and Jeff thought it was kind of a losing hand. So whether that's true or whether Jack actually left. I mean, he did leave him the most valuable company in the world, the most respected company in the world. But you know, he also, Jeff took over from Jack on September 7th of 2001. Right. GE made the engines on the jets. G had reinsured some of the buildings down at the World Trade Center. And of course owned NBC, which had ran with no advertising for at least a week costing GE hundreds of millions of dollars. So and they lost some employees that day. And of course, everything kind of changed in governance after 9 11. And so, you know, Jeff thought he had gotten a very different set of assets and opportunities than Jack thought he had bequeathed him. But so the question is, did Jeff play the hand poorly? Or did he make wrong decisions? I think really the turning point seemed to be the financial crisis, no surprise, because GE owned G capital, which was like the third or fourth largest financial institution in the country. And everybody was focused on Wall Street going down the tubes, but G capital almost went to tubes as well. Bill Cohen still with us. His latest book, well known, obviously to our Bloomberg audience and a former Bloomberg contributor. His latest book is called power failure, the rise and fall of an American icon, it is about GE. I want to ask you something though, 'cause you've written it back all mid Sachs. And our most read story on the Bloomberg has to do with Goldman paying out a $12 million or well over $12 million to a partner who complained internally about a toxic workplace for women in the highest echelons of Wall Street's most prestigious firm. This is our most read story all day today. I guess what I wanted to ask you is, what is the right question to be asking? Is this a Goldman story? Is it a Wall Street story? Like, what is it? When we see something like this, which is as our reporter said, this doesn't happen a lot, and it certainly isn't made public a lot when something like this happens. This is not just a Goldman Sachs problem. This is a chronic

"About 50% of the electricity is used by the homeowner And that power never touches the grid About 50% of the solar output will occur at times when the solar is producing more than you need in your house And at those times typically in the middle of the day when the sunlight is strong that's when you will export the excess generation out to the grid And then as a matter of physics that power basically serves your neighbors One analogy that I think is useful is if you plan a vegetable garden in your yard and you start growing your own vegetables you'll consume some of those vegetables yourself and you will buy less vegetables from the local grocery store Well the local grocery store doesn't get to charge you for the vegetables that you're no longer buying from them And that's why the idea of putting large fixed charges on to solar customers in essence to charge them for the power that they're not using is problematic Emily Fisher your response to that why should people be charged for energy that never touches the grid So I think that's one of the things that makes it hard to talk about net energy metering and rooftop systems is that sometimes we're not careful with terminology and one thing is that I don't think that the way that net energy metering is structured means that you're charging customers for the energy that they're consuming And it might be helpful to take a step back and talk just a little bit about the three different parts that make up an electricity rate There's a charge for the actual electricity you're consuming And then there are charges for the transmission and distribution system So if you're consuming the electricity that your home system is generating behind the meter you're not paying for that electricity you just get to use it and you're not being charged anything by the electric company But what you're not doing is paying for that larger transmission and distribution system that as Tom mentioned you're using at other parts of the day either to bring power into your home because you don't have enough from your own system or to take that excess and sell it back to the grid And so really the question with net energy metering isn't really about the generation part It's about whether or not those customers are contributing to that larger transmission and distribution system on which everyone including customers with rooftop solar rely And so I think that's what some of the net energy meeting debate right now is about is are we recovering those costs related to that larger system And what's a fair way of making sure that everyone who uses the grid pays their fair share for it I think everybody can conceptually agree with that but it gets down to how much that who pays what for that grid distribution system bernadette your group and many others are opposed to these changes your response Yeah well I think Emily Fisher and I agree on one thing which is net metering is about the energy that is exported to the grid on a sunny day That's a good thing And the debate in California right now is about what is that compensation What should that compensation be What should people get What's the price per kilowatt hour the people should get I think what Tom is racing is this completely out and left field idea that Southern California Edison and Pacific gas and electric and sempra the parent company of San Diego gas and electric have proposed and that the public utilities commission in their first draft of this policy change have embraced but they are hopefully backing away from which is taxing solar users for that self consumption that energy that never touches the grid And I think if I could elaborate on Tom's metaphor for a second let's now imagine that that homeowner not only is growing carrots but has just become a vegetarian So they're going to be consuming a lot more vegetables They probably will be buying just as many vegetables from the grocery store but they're going to augment that with their own garden That's really the future we're heading to as we electrify and we add electric cars We add heat pumps to our displace our natural gas usage in our homes We are going to increase our electricity consumption significantly And it's actually really critical from a cost management perspective for all of us in California especially that we start to reduce our demand on the grid We are in an electricity crisis right now in California that governor declared it not long ago We need more energy in order to power our society in a clean way Right I mean electrify everything is one of the most compelling cases for addressing climate change Emily right now soaring gas prices make EVs much more price competitive electric prices vary around the country but a rule of thumb is that driving an EV costs about the equivalent of a dollar gasoline What opportunity does that present for electrification of homes and mobility and how is that connected to the electrons we've been talking about from rooftop and utility solar Well I think bernadette and I agree on more than one thing And one is the value of electrification and helping to address climate change By and large electric companies in the United States have already reduced their emissions about 40% below 2005 levels and that's kind of the standard year we use to measure emissions reductions for a lot of reasons And that's a really significant reduction in emissions and we're on a trajectory to do even more even faster And we're going to need a mix of bigger scale renewable generation and.

"Well it just is Craig Well tell it to speak up Were you making me nervous No A few months after the electric company first went on the air NPR's Susan stamberg interviewed students who'd been watching the show This is Lynette Murray of Washington D.C. who was 12 years old at the time A lot of things surprised me that the way I take the E off the wall and it comes to another world And give an example Like for rad and you can take the Austin where it becomes red That makes the eye long and take the off and it comes Sure But 11 year old sherry Presley told NPR she had some trouble keeping up I enjoy it but it's so fast that how they have time to think over the sentence Barbara fowl says there was often tension between the reading experts and the comedy writers Over things like wordplay take the character Fargo north Cargo north decoder the messages decoded while you wait You know kids don't know if Fargo North Dakota They don't think it's funny They don't get it The electric company is often referred to as an experiment and by most accounts working on the show was not easy One writer joked that being asked to do two funny minutes on the continent blend with a nightmare and researchers like Barbara fowls had to push back against the TV haters Most people thought it was an athlete to try to use television to teach kids to read You know that television and reading were diametrically opposed and teachers really thought television was horrible And yet in the early 1970s the electric company was on more than 250 stations Within two months of its premiere the show was being used in classrooms in some 18,000 elementary schools But in 1977 the show was canceled Samuel gibbon says funding was limited and the children's television workshop had to make a choice And the question was which of the programs that we did That's machine the electric company could produce revenue for the total cell division workshop that would keep it in business And guess which show one.

Mike nichols all god. It but an amazing film. I've done not many. But i've done some very interesting fails. And that's that's how far one scene you come in and basically steal the movie bloody film should have got nominated all over the place and because of the times we lived in there are people who never even got seed in georgia because georgia supreme court abandoned.

"Because they had prepared the confederates were prepared. For general grant to engage them in that area he ended up going around them And up the tennessee river and set up what was later called the battle of shiloh Or pittsburg landing as you might wanna call it it. It was one of the early battles in the civil war. I think either eighteen sixty one or sixty two and It was a horribly bloody battle but the battle was gonna be. The battle of columbus ended up being shiloh but they were prepared the He gets my granddad. Grew up there right. On the mississippi river they found many balls in the trenches of us born in eighteen ninety nine so that was only five years after the civil war but it became apparent that if he was going to be educated he couldn't stay in that county because they had no high school so he had an uncle named fred cow. Who is a famous musician in louisville He founded the louisville conservatory of music. Which later became the university of louisville music. School and granddaddy came to louisville to live with uncle fred and he went to male high-school which at the time was in education in and of itself it. You didn't really have to go to college after that. 'cause you studied greek latin and the you studied the classical type of education. That's what granddaddy got he. later went to world war one For a very brief time for. I think he was probably seventeen eighteen years old so he went to europe. He got a little bit of gas. Not much but i think it did weaken him In his later life he didn't get any where near the gas. That that that some people got A back in that horrible horrible form of warfare that they engaged in world war one And that's why they had the where the face masks He got back to louisville and one of his first jobs. Maybe his very first job was that he worked for the louisville gas and electric company as a salesman of preferred stock directly to the public now. he he he would go door to door in louisville selling this stock to Individual people and families one of the areas that he went a lot was germantown because everybody there saved money In fact the very first date i ever had with my wife was in germantown at has an hours where we went to louisville to see the phantom of the opera and we went to eat has an hours which no longer exists but it was a great restaurant In in canada. In the germantown area of louisville granddaddy would go to the different people's homes and knock on the door and amuse a door to door salesman. That's what he was and he would. talk to him about Company louisville gas and electric company and a lot of times. There be a a light bulb hanging down from the ceiling over the kitchen table and he would say. The dividend on this preferred stock will be paid. Just like that like comes on you know and as if to illustrate the dependability of whatever anything to make a sale so fifty bucks you know they would go to the cookie jar. Because i don't think they like banks and dig out fifty bucks in there was so he worked there and then He worked for various Investment firms in lovo One of the names that comes to mind is a fellow named ben krieger. who's a granddaughter.

"Know, people are walking around in that. But the lines to like food and stuff like that as well up here by machinery. Here were the F one of seven years so Yeah, I was very surprised so that I really enjoyed. That is not good for the hips. So when you don't have to wait in line because then I will here. Let's try that. And let's try this. Most of the time. You look at the line and going, uh, next year, so I you read it. Everybody, hold on. You're wasting keys for this. I almost was going to because there was no line at Martha Stewart's You get the, uh, the cookies. I almost was going to get a bucket of cookies. I almost did. Then I think, Well, I can get a cup. But then they give you that cone thing, But you know, I don't. I'm not graceful enough to have the top cookies actually get somewhere other than a dirt. So it's like, you know what? I just kept on walking because Martha cookies just North was here. So anyway. Yeah, that was my trailer. I'm hungry for that tank cookie. Oh, well, okay in 1926 by McGraw Electric Company in debt and invented the first what? And I'll tell you. It is a kitchen product. Kitchen product. What do you think, Brian? Um Am blanking on the name. This is, uh, might get roasted for this. But, um My God, I'm blanking on the name the mixer thing, Uh, mixer thing? No, it was not a mixer. Okay? We put toast in it. Oh, it's else there. Oh, my goodness. The meaning meaning? Okay. The first automatic pop up toaster was marketed in June 1926 by McGraw Electric Company in Minneapolis. Under the name Toastmaster. The retail price for that little Jim was $13.50 wow. You go. I could not live without a toaster. I love toast. Same here. I love toast. I mean, I really love toast. Love love, and then you would butter I want on it. You have to get the butter from Trader Joe's And that the blue ones with assault I don't like consulted. There's no certain sense and there's no purpose to eat butter if you get unsalted so, But if you get the trader Joe's blue box Assaulted. You can really eat. That was a spoon and you're in heaven. Now you may ask. How do I know this? Because I have only a couple of teaspoons, That's all. And then I put it on my toast. Okay. What do we got back there Anything, all right? I'm gonna take a call real quick. So give me five seconds. Sounds good. Okay back to stepping on the leash when your dog is jumping. Okay, So you're on a walk. You meet your friend. Okay, Now you step up. Okay? Remember, you've got to have a six ft leash for this so that you can stand straight and still be standing on the leash. You do not want to you don't pin the dog down. All you're doing is finding where you need to step on the leash. The dog is standing on all fours that his head is dipped a little bit. Then if he sits, the collar goes a little bit looser. And if he lays, the collar goes totally loose. So what you're gonna do is you're standing talking to that person. You just let the dog figure it out, okay? And pretty soon he's going to learn to sit or just rest while you talk, and now you're not sitting there crying. He's ripping your arm off as you're trying to vote for vote forward when you're pulling them back. Lord steps to any time The dog starts jumping, alerting at something. You step on the leash and ignore the dog. Don't look at him. Don't touch him. Let him figure it out. Same thing when people come over to the house before you answer that door. You put the dog on the leash, and you're going to go be facing East and West. If your company's coming in north and south you want people to walk past you? I remember Tell everybody Don't look at the dog. Don't touch the dog. Just walk on by. Just going to stand on the leash. Then once the dog is better, and there's gonna be no greeting of the dog at the door by anybody Once the dog is better at that pretty soon your goal is that you could ask him to sit. Okay. Now he tries to alert out at the people coming into the house. Then you bump backwards, But in time the dog starts getting out of control with jumping. Just drop your left hand off the leash at a six ft leash. Step on the line. Every short dogs. It's usually about 10 inches. Big dogs about 15 inches from the hook. Do not pin him to the ground. What you're doing is you're keeping him from jumping up at you and jumping out at people okay? And the dog would get better and better, and nobody gets to touch the dog until the dog calls the dog and stay on the line. I don't don't get over put off the leash. That person comes into pet the dog. He's going to lurch out. To step on that line so that they used you still got control the situation, the dog learns by behaving and being calm that he gets what he wants somebody's attention. Okay. What do we What do we act back there, Mr Bryant? All right. So we have Suzanne on the phone. All right, who has an old lab and has a diet? Question? A diet question. I love those. Okay. What can I do for you? Hi, Katie. Hi. We have yellow loud mix. She's between 11 and 12. Okay, and she does relatively well. Um, but she's We just had an ultrasound done because they suspected amount, okay, and that came back clean. Good. They told us that she has a second bladder wall. Mhm. And so that caused a couple of urinary tract infections, right? We think, and so we've been on antibiotics. Now We're just getting done with our second round and I'm just Thinking there might be a better way to treat this Okay, Because I go out. Now be honest. Is your dog fat? Know what, you two or £3 overweight. Okay? No, that two or three problems You think of Inhumans as bumpkins in a dog. It's huge. Huge. Your first thing is because if they're overweight, just like what happens in humans. Okay, the then the fat starts going around the heart and around in our organs, okay? And so the thing is, is that you want to keep this dog as lean as possible, because then he does. The body can concentrate on itself. They said. It tried to just work with all the fat around it, all right, so that when people say water to take £1 of hamburger Remember, dogs only gained weight from their neck. Your shoulders or what? You know, I mean, their sides. Ribs are back to their, but they don't gain weight in their tail their legs to their face face. Okay, Now take a pound of hamburger. Take a pound of hamburger thought out. Where would you put that pound of hamburger? And then hum what we do dog look like we're in that hamburger. One or £2 adds up pretty fast, doesn't it? Okay. Okay. So we got to get that weight off now What? What are you feeding? We're three days feeding from senior. Okay, You don't need a senior, believe it or not. Just a regular just good dog food, not like the neutral source. Just because your dog is senior. Doesn't mean they need senior feet of their better to defeat the better second senior stuff. They start taking a lot of the good stuff out. And then then your dog poops a lot more. Okay, So what I would do is if you like proms, and then go just a regular dis feed less. All right. And don't feed by what your dog ways because he's fat. Okay, So what I usually with older dogs, usually they take half of what you're feeding them when they were younger. So if you're three ft three cups a day back then they only need a cup and a half right now. All right, and you'll always be a small dinner. You feed the bulkier food in the morning. And then just a light dinner. Use smaller bowls. Now,.

They're like we're we're trying to like shoot it in the head one me want to watch it die like i feel like actually the angle people go with so yeah i can understand the difference here. Basically and then it wasn't long before he graduated from animals to people anyway so like we were bound to get there. He got a taste for human murder on december seventeenth nineteen fifty-eight. He was now thirty one and he shot okay so he shot someone. Do you remember edna. His first wife her no. He shot her new husband. I thought they were amicable. that's problematic. there's i mean it's that's really awful but also like that makes me think there was some more underlying drama than well. I'll tell you the backstory the drums. Yes i'd have some tea for you. I know it's time wednesday. But i'll give you some tea here So her husband. James bullock was a clerk for the union electric company of missouri and was a part time student and he was shot near the saint. Louis art museum with a twenty two caliber gun on his way to attend a night class. I know and Edna and surname stanley bullock had only been married for five and a half months when he was murdered so it was a very new marriage. However it wasn't as you probably imagine as we both imagined the case of a jealous ex-husband. In fact edna had given engelman consent to kill james in order for them to collect on his life insurance to go so they were amicable bowl for farther extent that we thought. Wow i i i. I was like oh they weren't as friendly as you said and now they're like so friendly it turns head. It's like oh they were really friendly like too friendly. One might say wow. Can you imagine getting along that..

"Facts. I'm interested in data. I preferred books that have charts and tables in them. I love big government reference books and i. I can't tell you how many books i have that. All they are books full of numbers and data. And i prefer that to reading somebody's opinion. I'll read people's opinion later. But you know i read so much of the current books and it's the rally chinese a motion to tug on your first year strings heartstrings. Start say pursestrings but sometimes pursestrings Yeah no no that's true too But i you know. Sometimes i remember one book and the tables the maps and stuff in the book said the opposite of what the author said of the whole premise of the book and they couldn't even read their own data right so i. I wanna draw my own conclusions. I wanna be a skeptic. A skeptic not a cynic whereas skeptic as from zuri you know show me Let me double check the facts. I don't really believe what you're saying. Till i double checked for myself. A cynic is somebody who distrust your mo- needs and thinks you're up to evil. And all that so i never cynical but i'm always skeptical. So my library is non-fiction. My library is full of books. Full of facts and data encyclopedias and dictionaries on every subject. You can imagine it's real. I always say. I pretty much cover every subject except cooking and sports. I don't cook. But i do have a lot of books about food. The history of foods and vegetables and fruits. And i have i come coming from indiana. I love auto racing. And i love basketball so i have sections on them. I kinda got into world cup. But i'm My baseball friends would say oh. You have a terrible library at the same time with sixty thousand books. Somebody will say to me. Well you have a much on this subject. I say no no not much only twelve books you know. So sometimes what to me is insignificant or was just a brief interest For a few weeks. Although i usually keep every interest i gain new interests every year and then i keep everything but you know what some people would be a big library. The me i tend to when i'm interested in a subject like the nine books came today. Well forum we're on the same subject. Why really wanted to get my head around that. And i wanna compare what different authors saying but i especially want books with data facts and information so my tension span is just too short for a big fat novel. Hey if i ever really got into. Literature cost me a fortune. Designed have to buy another forty thousand bucks or whatever it is sixty thousand books you know but i enjoy short stories and i enjoy movies but i mean real life nonfiction. Nothing could be more amazing. Read the biographies of these great people. These great business people that i study and right up on websites and stuff and you know. Not fictional story is more dramatic or heart-wrenching or whatever so no. My library is really and selective. As when i had the bookstore team that i started my friends and i did. I got free books from the publishers. I would turn them away. Or i would put them out on the front desk anyway. Wants these tapis because they will give me books that i didn't really want my library on the other hand. I have other places in my library where there's a gap on the shelf. I keep a list of important books that haven't been written. Yeh why say. Nobody has written x. for example there hasn't been a good history of the general electric company written since the nineteen forties. And that's crazy. You know as important as that company is all the changes they've been through and so i've got a gap waiting for somebody to write that book in a sense. Mine is is very selective approach. Even though it's come to sixty thousand books now i'm going to talk about how you select books and also organize your book. She said you have spots available before we do the questions you want. Be thinking right now is like why physical books like. Why you thirty rooms. When you could just get a lot of these on a kindle. Yes yes i books..

She just brings such authority and such honesty to whatever she's playing at the age of 16 years old. She was the sole breadwinner for her family. Little Puerto Rican girl who nobody thought much of at MGM with a contract My introduction Torino Moreno Was on the electric company. I knew nothing about her career prior to that, which is huge. I mean, she's huge in the years before the electric company, But for me, it was the woman who screams. Hey, you guys! At the beginning of the electric company, and and I became a fan because of that. And then later on, as I saw her and other things, you know, but that was like halfway through her career. You know, she had already won the Oscar and she had done all these movies in the fifties and sixties before she even started the electric company and the electric company was kind of her go find herself days. And I'm glad that they focus on that one part of the documentary because, yeah, I've seen West Side story. I mean, I know Marino, Marino and I know she's a big name, but I will always remember her as the character from electric company. This is a nice look at her life is sort of like how the Sparks brothers is a very basic even though it's uniquely put together. It's a very basic biopic of a band. This is a very basic Retrospective of somebody's career with her being interviewed. I mean, it's her still alive, and they're interviewing her, so you get it very much from her perspective. And it shows how Hollywood has changed, and it shows how the the racial component has has affected her throughout the years and how sometimes that was an advantage for her, And sometimes that became Struggle. And and so it's a nice little spotlight. It's a well made movie. It's a well made spotlight on a well known performer that has had a great career and especially if you're a fan. You should enjoy watching this movie. But then again for me One of the people in the Hey, you guys fan base. There's a lot of stuff you gotta walk through before he gets to the electric company stuff, But still, it's a nice look at somebody. I didn't really know the ins and outs of her life. So You know, If you like biopics, you're going to enjoy this one. I'm going to say it kind of rocks. He kind of rocks. That's it for the segment. I need to go to a break. When I come back.

How Chris Wilson Went From Life In Prison To A Life Of Meaning And Purpose

"Chris. Welcome to the unmistakable. Creative thanks so much for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me. It is my pleasure to have you here. So i actually came across your story up because of an article that you wrote on medium about the books that change your life in prison and i remember reading through that and my first reaction was jesus this guy Learn to speak multiple languages. Read all these books for hey. I went to berkeley. And i didn't do anywhere near that in four years of college So we'll get into that. But i think i want to start with what i think is a fitting question that i tend to ask a lot of people and that is what did your parents do for work. And how did that end up. Impacting the choices that you ended up making throughout your life in your so gr growing up. My mom started her career as a nurse. How after she graduated from college and then she went back to school and she got a couple of certifications became a paramedic and pretty much work in the medical field. Emergency response feel for For like the rest for life and so. My dad was Electrician so he worked for electric company. So that's what they did. What what impacted they end up having you in terms of the direction you end up going well. My mom Had raised me by ourselves because my dad and my mom got divorced when i was eight months. No my father wasn't really a part of my life growing up but the impact of my mom had me is like my mom because she was a paramedic. She worked twelve hour shifts. So i was still with my grandmother Monday through finding a civil my mom on the weekends and so i would. Just kind of like a hybrid. So my grandmother's neighborhood was like a really tough neighborhood. washington dc. This was late eighties early nineties and my mom lived outside of dc maryland. And a pretty like you know. Middle class neighborhood was nice. It was mixed white people black people in everything was like really cool around a but My mom when i had time to spend. What does she instilled in me. A good work ethic entrepreneurship in and being nice and respectful. Mom for the most part at least initially when i was younger mike. Thanks changes certain point. So i wonder what that point changes because i remember you. There's something that you said in the book. And this is one of those things like i. I look at basically took everything that a highlight and underline and put it into a document. But you said you know when you start from a place like division avenue. Life's fragile you don't get to make mistakes because you don't have a safety net but and you know when i when i read that and i was going through the book I remember going to school an probably. What was the worst neighborhood in a place called bryant texas and it was in seventh grade and it was by far the most dangerous area of town and i used to have to stay there late at night because i worked at the university. So it'd be terrified as this seventh grader after basketball practice but i also think that to some degree probably i have certain biases about that neighborhood. Ob just baked into how. I was raised by And so i wonder what about what about those kind of environments. Do you think that we have misperceptions about from you. Know media like my immediate thought was. Oh this is probably just like boys in the hood rob so like how accurate is stuff like that. Well i would look at it differently right a little bit. I would say. I mean you're right in the sense that folks have their biases about Neighborhoods like that. But i think what people don't think about is what would have conditions in policies that will put in place to make these neighborhoods. The waiting. Were you know so like police Name was policed in. You know people just being harassed by the police. That's what happened with. Like when i was growing up. Only come through his jump out. Pakistan folks didn't own a home folks Couldn't get jobs so there was a lot of stuff but these were like based off for policies put in place that kinda like creed atmosphere what he's neighborhoods dangerous so always important for people to remember that So that's something that you know. I don't think people think about no well. I mean you. And i were talking about this before we hit record here I remember dave chapelle talking about you know with your an african american men. Your relationship to law enforcement is fundamentally different than that of other people like you actually have a relationship of fear of the very people who are basically put in society to protect you absolutely absolutely Better than us especially at my neighborhood on weight it was just all black people and so only interaction while white people were police and when they would it would pat down. It wasn't like nice. It wasn't like it would ask. Holiday was so we grew up this way and then when stuck what happened in our neighborhood. I'd say shoot something like that and like folks like neighbors or call the police. It'd take a mike thirty five minutes. Get it twenty. Minutes or maybe. Sometimes they didn't even show up so this was a relationship with them growing up in. So is this like naturally like and then we see people on. Tv shot by police like all the time. So it's something like it's a survival mechanism to just be you know worried police.

Corry over under on five the conservative federal conservative response on the line five thus far. I think it's under. I think if you just look at the moment it's it's a political winner with their base. I think even canadians writ large will say this actually started to feel like maybe we're not getting any of these pipelines when you poll canadians as a whole canadians are still supportive of pipelines right. It's a bit of a myth that this country is wholesale turned against them or development in oil and gas for that matter however the downside. The potential downside is so huge. Why you would wanna tie line. Five and existing pipeline. That's been running safely for almost seven years to excel which was a big political dust up and knockout down in the united states that we have lost and we have lost. Unequivocally is just beyond me why you would want to conflict those two issues and invite the kind of response that is possible. When those two issues are conflated is its sheer madness. it is sheer madness and If we are all very lucky it will not register at all in the united states and everything will move on.

I recovery plan that's challenging but to deal with fifty individual states that are going to take out their economic desires or their their their desires on another national government. That's not on we can't allow that and The federal government not only for the steak line nine but for the stake of the lumber industry or the automobile industry or any industry in canada that exports more than they import the mascot industry You can't have individual states making up individual rules of engagement of international trade That's the nation state responsibility We have International government relations to do that and we will We have to protect those rights that we have earned and negotiated From the federal government in the united states. Go is this the right strategy. Shaimaa regan standing up saying nope this is not keystone excel. We will fight for this thing. It's not against the us against the governor in michigan. What do you think of that strategy. Yeah so i find. This is very fascinating one because the story is in many ways identical to the conversation about The trans mountain pipeline going through british columbia the same basic concerns the environmental jurisdiction residing where it does and isn't it the right of the premium or the governor to say. Hey this doesn't meet the standards that we have and then you know the national government in the case of trans mountain and likely the national government and the case down in michigan to say no. Sorry this is. this is This is crossing some boundaries. This is not your responsibility. We got this. Your responsibility is not like you can do your environmental tests and checks and all of that and you can hold them to a standard. But you can't it's what we would call the doctrine of color ability right where just because you have. Environmental power does not mean. You can then turn it. Into regulatory power over inter national pipelines. And and that's really. What's i play here like. Michigan is trying to use a power. They do have to seize power that they do not have and so. It's not just the canadian government. That should be up in arms about this. It will be the us government because governments. Don't tend to like to see that kind of authority other governments and set those kinds of precedence. The big difference between trans mountain and this one line five is line.

"Perfect right on the thirty six minute mark. Here's the thing though. Here's the thing we don't actually know how this all plays out. All we can look at is the recessions of the past and in general governments of been punished more for not taking action than they have been punished for taking action. So my thinking is that more action is better. I think that in general that has worked for over the last year. And i don't see that changing now. That might be like. Obviously every industry is going to run up to the government. After this right we need a bailout right. But you know the government's going to pick and choose and there's going to be winners and there's going to be losers. Cap was to run to the canadian association of petroleum producers. If they were to run to the government and say listen. We're really hurting. We need a bail out to. I don't think you're gonna get the same response. Because i think that the government may say i. I think you're valuable. I think you're essential. But i don't see you in the same situation and i don't see you surviving the same way that we need you to survive in the future. So i think that this action and and the other actions that are undoubtedly coming are required by the government And it's a benefit Not a not. A bug corey. Same question to you. Does this leaning to the conversation of corporate welfare and perhaps as an extension to that do you think has particular harm to governments that. Engage in it Well yeah i do. I mean this is a complicated one one of the questions. That of course should come up when we have conversations like this about my god. What would we do without the airlines is okay. Why are they in private hands to begin with if they're so vitally important for the interests of this nation and we've been served pretty well during some pretty good times it it's undeniable. How much the cost of air travel has gone down in my lifetime. For example you start to see a bit of the downside of that. If everybody is running their efficiencies that tightly and then all of and putting all of the money back to the shareholders and not pocketing it away and not building any kind of cushion. Because they're in deep competition well every now and then the government's going to have to jump in and give you a one percent loan for nine billion dollars. I mean and if that's the case we need to think about this in a more systematic sense what are we going to do about these major. Utilities airlines are not generally considered a utility. But these things that we cannot we cannot let them go away..

It just strikes me that they were either overselling the benefit to the to the donor Which is probably with their doing right. They build something for two thousand dollars that they took a donation for one hundred thousand. Just making up numbers completely in which case. They felt like they needed to do this. Or they were just booking twice as much revenue for the same project and either way. I mean one is kind of like unethical. The others like virtually fraudulent. So i'm interested.

Through the root of our conversation two years ago and to the next several minutes of this interview The Internet is even more now than it was two years ago, right because the kids are going to school and everybody's working from home. We all need it as we need electricity and plumbing. Why should it not be regulated as such? So I do believe that the debate is no longer a debate over whether Internet access is a luxury or a necessity. It's a necessity. To me. It's clear that the utility style regulation that would be imposed of net neutrality. Does not serve the consumer at the end of the day. Perhaps the best evidence comes from abroad in Europe, which has disease till the style regulations treats the Internet. Like the water company, the electric company regulators had to go hat in hand to companies like Netflix and YouTube at the beginning of the pandemic and ask them to proactively throttle content to consumers because they had not had the infrastructure investment needed. To keep up more over. There are parts of the digital divide in Europe that are not getting addressed because there's simply not an incentive to build those networks. So let's talk about private companies here and some of the power they have in this economy. And I need to turn the page to section 2 30 of the Communications Decency Act, which is in the waning days of your chairmanship has become the net neutrality of 2020 and 2021, right. The The provisions of the law that gives immunity for social media companies and many others for what people say on that site. Um do you think I'm just gonna go straight for the £800 gorillas? First? Do you think Twitter and Facebook have too much power? I do think that those companies, among others in the social media space do not operate by the same principles that other companies in the Internet economy do. For example, with respect to Twitter, who makes the decisions about content moderation, why is one actor not allowed to post but the supreme leader if Iran is These are the types of things that with respect to Internet service providers, the FCC's instituted regulations and I think that's part of the reason why in the halls of Congress is a growing bipartisan consensus that we need to re examine the regulatory framework for these companies. Now the FCC doesn't have authority here. That's a decision for Congress and the next administration to make. But I do think that there is a growing questions about transparency and consistency. If the FCC doesn't have authority here, why did you say a number of months ago You were going to take a look at a new rule. Teofilo out how to implement to 30 at one might reasonably assume the behest of the president. United States who has not been shy about his feelings about this law. What we don't have authority to change the law, which is what's many elected officials are talking about with respect to this section, 2 13 ounce and I made the Department of Commerce submitted a petition to us and we made it into print dependent determination that we had legal authority to interpret that their immunity provisions and that narrow provision only. That's one of the things that we were considering, and we decided that there wasn't time to move forward. But Do you think this is an issue that's going to grow as the social media increasingly becomes the public square when it comes to political discourse? Well, just pause to note Children screaming the background and random thuds Because we're on a roll world. We're all making radio from our living rooms. Sorry about that. Now, look, it's the way it is. It's the way it is. Let me let me actually just just pick up on what you just said and ask you sort of the following question, right? Because in in a matter of six or seven days or whatever it is, you will no longer be the chairman of the FCC. There will be somebody else. Who will be a Democrat approved by the Democratic Senate now On by wonder about this idea that you and I talked about last time Regulatory ping pong Because net neutrality is going to come back up section 2 30 is going to come up. And whoever chairs the FCC is probably gonna have an opposite point of view as to you. What What is the role of Congress in these decisions? And, um I guess why? Why? Why do our regulatory agencies have to do this kind of ping Pong? Congress needs to put on the page exactly what the rules should be so that administrative agencies don't swing back and forth, depending on the political affiliation of its leader. Now, you mentioned that neutrality that I think it's an actual, relatively simple fix. No blocking, no throttling any competitive Honda. Sorry, I can't see I can't help but laugh When you say it's a simple fix. I mean, come on. It is no. I think it is in terms of the substance now the politics of course, there are much more difficult. But even beyond that, for example, my first major speeches chairman, I urged Congress To think about infrastructure legislation. This is back in 2017, allocating 50, or even $60 billion for broadband. And if they had done that, in a bipartisan way back, then think about how much better off would be today. And so I think that it's important for Congress to update the rules to tell the American people you've elected us to make this judgment about the digital economy. Here is our judgment, and then agencies have a little more certainty, and so would consumers of the end of the day.

Creating job opportunities by closing the urban-rural digital divide

"Me today matt dunn founder and executive director of the non-profit center on rural innovation matt. Thank you very much for joining me today. A great to be with you. I don't know how many folks out there no the nonprofit so when it you give us a kind of overview on what your mission is sure The center on rural innovation is an action tank. That is dedicated to closing the urban rural economic divide and we focused on building digital economy ecosystems to make sure that there is a more equitable economy particularly in the face of automation. Very important topic is the broadband. As as part of this. I think so. Why don't we start with that. Tell me what your organization has been doing how you've been working to make sure there's an equitable access to broadband even before the pandemic. We knew that if you're going to create a digital economy jobs in rural places which are the The the jobs that grow out of automation and the other a real trends bar time that you had to be on a level playing field in those economic models and the very basic level is you need to have access to broadband you need to be able to collaborate with people Only in your immediate community but all over the world you need to have access to data and data analytics. An you need to have access to the what is now. The largest supercomputer ever created which is the cloud computing infrastructure that can allow for a technology of products and services to do to really thrive But only if you have that connection to them so we Been doing work in communities in partnership with a company called c. Technologies to help those rural communities. Do the pre-development understand. What are the business models. What are the organizational structures and the funding resources. That can allow them to build fiber to the home that will provide essentially future-proof can activity speeds in ones. That are frankly faster than you can usually get in big cities like new york and san francisco. The interesting part of this process is that many people think that it's impossible to bring world class broadband to rural places in. It's just not true In fact role communities pretty much one at a time have gone through a scrappy individualized process of bringing fiber to the home in communities. That census tracts represent over ten million world people so this canaan be done. They're usually done in hybrid public private partnerships of some kind and in many cases. They're leveraging the kinds of organizations that brought electrcity to those regions of the country when the marketplace wouldn't do that on the their own cooperative electric companies municipal electric companies small telephone companies with special status From the fcc. And those have been the laboratories of innovation of bringing broadband and now other communities are developing things like telecommunication union districts that can bridge over municipal boundaries county boundaries to create a quasi public enterprises. That can still leverage low cost capital through municipal bonds while delivering a broadband product. Their constituents that can really work and be financially sustainable interesting how this is being done piecemeal but i think covert has really pointed out. You know. it's you know it's sometimes takes a a a nationwide event to really draw. Focus on how important something like this. This infrastructure is when it comes to work and when it comes to schools and to help the pandemic really laid bare. What many of us already knew which was the lack of universal broadband and a lack of of equity that was true in creating what was known the. Fcc has the homework gap because even if you were doing most of your school day in a school that plenty of access if there was a differential in your ability to access content After school it wasn't that different from when the kids who had electricity in their home were able to read books at night and who who weren't so But and now that everything is online and many schools are going up partially or fully remote. The inequity becomes even more pronounced. If you can't go to a library for that type of access because the the libraries are close to patrons and it's a little depressing to see in in many row places folks sitting in their cars outside of a library building or a school building trying to get the wifi. That's coming out of the windows. It's not what the Most affluent nation in the world should be be seeing a the other is

"These scooters. There are many of them out there. But how many of them can you subscribe to? David Hyman has a company called. And he is offering read full not reynolds but subscription. To instead of paying a thousand dollars for a new scooter David wants to tell you all about subscription. Hi David. How's it going tests you same here or tell everybody what you got. Sure. So We started Nadi about two and a half years ago. Because we felt that there was a market in this game from my own personal experience of people want to own scooters have one in their possession. It's up, rent them on the street and I got frustrated with ridesharing scooters both. From kind of a at Adnan experience, where wrote a lime scooter to a whole foods and I came out with my groceries and? was. Gone because somebody took it wrote away back and I had just bought inexpensive pint of ice cream and I ended up walking home with melted ice cream. And I thought why don't I just own one of these things like Not, not to mention the urban blight, right that the separate conversation I know you're down in. Southern California people can't hit three steps in tripping over one, right so. I just like the ownership model all. and. So we launched to ninety two years ago. Our hunch was correct. We we were selling hundreds a month, and since covid has hit, we are now showing thousands of. With folks s by coming on board to carry our scooter and new Europe Europe photographer being H Photo Outta Rama. Now Sell our scooter. Are Scooters it's the best electric. Scooter. Poured. Electric Scooter you can own this. Don't just take my word for it There's over a hundred reviews online that states the best electric scooter you could have, but it's a thousand dollars and not everyone can afford that. So we've been asking yourself, how have we reach abroad her audience? And so What is this? When is this going? Live this life when you want it to go live? So. So Logging all access is our new subscription service. It is thirty nine dollars a month. No commitment. There's a one time fifty dollars setup fee. And that's it. We bring it to Your Place Felice ambled. It's dropped off by an inaugural represented if You don't have to assemble it. Don't have to deal with the box and whenever you're done with it, we come and pick it up. But. We think that. Indian. That's New York because of the tour. Angeles in New York, city is where we're launching. Correct. If anything ever goes wrong with the scooter we at your door and under twenty four and we just hot swap another one. So you know skewed downtime. And Insurance is included. So, if anything goes wrong with the scooter, if it's stolen or any form of damage. There's an eighty, five dollar deductible. Now you said you started the company based on melted ice cream. So what happens when you ride your scooter to whole foods and walkout in walk into the store to get the Ice Cream? What do you do with your scooter that you are now subscribing to? So you can either lock it like a bicycle regular you locked works. Scooter so light I throw it in my shopping cart. That's what I did. I mean, it is. It's twenty six pounds. It's the kind of thing that you can bring it any cafe or restaurant. You know we we sell thousands a month, the normal use case with our scooters that. You take it. Everywhere you go and we really designed for portability. Normal. Users under not. Ride to. Our or a subway can take it on the subway and then pop out and take it with them. It takes up no footprint on the subway. It's got one plate folding mechanism only weighs twenty six pounds and it's you know how to arrange and it's electric. So it moves along. Nineteen miles an hour. I mean, you know it's gone incredible amount of torque because it's dual motor see can go fairly steep hills with it. And where do you make them? We make them in Shenzhen. Okay. Everything else okay. Correct. But we are in American company eight I'm proud to say, I, think out of every electric scooter company than. Scooters were the only American based electric, Scooter Company. And our customer services you incredible. So we treated like Patagonia were the only electric company that has a phone number. You can call people pick up the phone and talk to you. Now is the reason that sales went up the delete because of the maybe a lot of people don't want to take the bus and be around people and things like that. Yeah, I mean there's been this kind of seismic shift towards quota. Personal transportation people not wanting to get on public transportation, not get on ride shares, not getting share googlers, shared lifts, and so there's a real need right now you know there's especially you know New York skiers are becoming legal on Sunday. There there's you know we went volt markets to start because we couldn't choose between the two. La Is. The scooter epicenter of the planet. But L. New York's got a real need right now. So we decided to launch in. Baltimore. So. Anybody listening. We're now in the middle, the MO, the middle of summer. So when do you expect to start hitting Chicago in Boston and San Francisco and some of the other major markets? I. I'm not going to throw any any M. Any dates but those cities are are the first ones on our list. Okay. But certainly, they wanted to spend a thousand dollars you could buy you could buy one Tamar. Absolutely and you can't finance it on our website is well. But put thirty nine dollars a month into perspective. That's that's a dollar forty a day. New York subway ride today's three dollars and fifty cents for one Ri-. A rideshare scooter from lime were bird is about five bucks. So. Five dollars a ride. For. Daily commuter there's been two hundred dollars a month for grossly inferior product that half the time the batteries are dead or they're broken when you go to them not to mention the issues but share right now so. And it's yours and it's your germs and not somebody else's your germs and keep the streets clean et keeps your neighborhood looking good and it's no different for your city than owning a bicycle and you get a little bit of

Which Companies Won't Survive the Pandemic

"Which companies are least likely to survive the financial fallout from the corona virus and Bro recounts yet another painful and baffling week in the global economy and stock market. All that and more on this week's episode of Molly Glances Bro. What's up the stock market? Of course make any well. Let's review what happened during the first week of May ending on May eighth so the S&P five hundred was up three point five percent for the week so at this point it's only down nine point. Three percent for the year. Nasdaq even better up. Six percent for the week that puts in positive territory for the year so during one of the worst economic downturns ever. The Nasdaq is up. Almost two percent small caps also had a good week. Five point seven percent but they're still down sixty percent of the year international stocks up three percent but down eighteen percent of the year and boring old bonds or down slowly stat. Were down slightly last week but up five percent for the year so if you're looking at your portfolio it's mostly all good news. The badge news from last week came from the monthly employment report. So we've been talking every week about job losses. Those are actually figures of the number of Americans filing for unemployment with the state's the last Friday the US Bureau of Labor statistics otherwise known as the B. L. S. announced the official employment numbers for April and these figures are based on surveys of tens of thousands of households and employers. Just to get an idea of how many people are working how people how many people are not working and let me tell you. It Ain't pretty for the month or twenty million. Americans lost their jobs. Driving the unemployment rate up to fourteen point seven percent now. At least that's the figure you probably saw if you pay attention to the financial media however the actually releases six unemployment rates every month the one that most of us here about in the media that fourteen point seven percent in April is technically known as the Youth Three. It measures the number of people out of work and the people looking for a job. But think about that second part and ask yourself how many unemployed people are looking for a job right now. The fact of the matter is millions of Americans have put their job searches on hold because know they probably wouldn't be able to find a job or they don't feel like it's safe to look for a job and then there the Americans who've had hours cut back so essentially there are millions of Americans who are working part time. They wish they could work fulltime but they can't actually. Uncle Sam has a number that captures all of these people as well it's known as the U. Six and it led to twenty two point eight percent. Wow last month. So it's the highest just about the highest ever when you look back at the great recession of two thousand to two thousand nine. The highest rate was just seventeen point six percent and it took more than a year to get there yet during this pandemic panic and only took two months to get there and it's really the worst we've seen since the Great Depression. Add to that. Another five percent of the workforce that was categorized as quote employed but absent from work and some people are furloughed but some of those people probably should have been considered unemployed. You add that and you can see why Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Fox News this weekend that the real unemployment rate is likely closer to twenty five percent. It's probably going to be even higher in May. Now if you dig a little bit more into the report every major sector lost jobs with the heaviest losses coming from leisure and hospitality where forty seven percent of the people were laid off that wipes out all the jobs created in that industry since nineteen eighty eight according to the Washington Post the sector of the fair. The best were utilities. Lost thousand so if you want job security contact the water company or the electric company or something like that. There was some good news that least seemingly good news on the surface in the report and that was average hourly earnings increased. Five percent believe it or not people making more money but the report pointed out. The reason that is true is because most of the people who are losing their jobs and not calculated in that are lower income employees so the reason it earnings went up is because it took out all the lower income folks at least the lower income folks who lost their jobs. How are American households reacting to all this gloomy employment news? While they're here is some genuine good news in March. The personal savings rate jumped thirteen point one percent that is the highest rate since the nineteen eighties. Americans are borrowing last. According to Federal Reserve Total. Consumer credit fell three point. Four percent on an annualized rate. That's the first decline since two thousand and eleven so good job America doing the smart thing and then finally despite the downturn in the economy Goldman Sachs predicts that disposable income will go up this year. Thanks in large part to the government stepping in to make up for what many people have lost sell from their research. Report quote combining forecasts of Labor income corporate dividends proprietors income interest rental income and tax cuts and government payments. We project that total disposable personal income will increase by zero point five percent in two thousand twenty which is pretty remarkable. You think about it.

Kid-Friendly TV Show Recommendations

"I think it's important to clarify. We're doing these recommendations are for very little kids and everything that we are talking about all of the recommendations on this episode our TV and I think there are parents of very young children and people who give advice to parents have very young children who tend to obsess over screen time and how much screen time a toddler should have look. These are unusual times and the first thing that I want to say before I even start doling out recommendations is just to remember that you're doing the best you can. You're doing fine if you need to put your toddler in front of a TV or a tablet and that is what needs to happen for you to stay sane for you to get your work done then so be it. Your kid is going to be fine. Your kid has you. That's what's important wanted to get that out there. I will also go so far. As to say as a person who obsessed about this didn't obsess about it goes back and forth the important part of the best you can is the you can part so if you are stuck on the fact well. The best is only two hours. It's the best that you can do. Given your circumstances your doing great exactly so. My first recommendation is something that my parents put in front of me. When I was very small child back in the seventies which has been fairly recently rebooted for new generations the electric company. The Electric Company is a educational children's program in the seventies it featured such wonderful luminaries as Rita Moreno. It has an extraordinarily charming kids show. That is really focused on education. But does it in such a warm and inviting and pleasant way so the original seventies electric company you can stream it via Amazon? It does cost money. You can find pretty lengthy excerpts of it on Youtube floating around and you know a lot of us who grew up in the seventies. We'll have you know like individual favorite moments from the electric company. I just remember that that was something that my parents really love to have on and around because though it was geared very very much too little kids and they say online. They say that it's geared toward five to nine but I think you can really go younger than that. My parents didn't go nuts watching it now. They recently rebooted the electric company from two thousand nine to twenty eleven. Those three seasons you can stream for free at PBS DOT ORG and As an incentive for parents who listen to this show and have not checked out the rebooted electric company one of the CAST members is William Jackson Harper. Who Played Chidi on the good place incentive to watch the new electric company Occasional guest spots and occasional music composition from one Lin. Manuel Miranda. I'LL AL. Obviously we could go back and forth. Comparing the quality of the two there is no way to compare something. You were nostalgic for as a child with something that is trying to duplicate that magic but that is a marvelous piece of educational programming. That is still entertaining. And that is right up there with stuff like Mister Rogers neighborhood and sesame street and all sorts of wonderful stuff that you can find on PBS kids. Electric Company is just a gorgeous piece of that puzzle. And I don't think it gets as much recognition as it should get especially compared to some of those other classic pieces of programming love it. Excellent Pack Loved Electric Company Berry. What is your first recommendation? We in our family when my oldest was younger and I was pregnant with my second son. It was really imperative for me to be sitting down lying down pretending that I didn't have a child for like two or three hours a day but I also had already watched so much Daniel Tiger which is wonderful and other. Pbs Kids thing. That probably taught me a lot about parenting but I wanted something that I also really liked from the creators of Wallace and GROMIT. Shaun the sheep which I have so many I mean I literally have photographs of both my husband and my then three year old watching. Shaun the sheep and both laughing at exactly the same amount because it is genuinely funny. It is the first thing that I think our family all liked the same amount where we really all were engaged in it in the same way. I you know you're not pretending to love you know Mom Tiger or whatever you're not pretending to be like Mom Tiger. I'm really actually mom. Tigers really haunted me over the years but I will say that Shaun. The sheep is both adorable in terms of its slapsticky laps. But it also looks gorgeous. So if you're not familiar with Wallace and gromit they created these these beautiful claymation sort of handmade aesthetic from our animations and Wallace and gromit. I also highly recommend but it's more of a sophisticated storyline. What's Great About Shaun? The sheep is that they are sort of snack. -able basically it is a brilliant sheep named Sean and the adventures of him and his farmer and his friends and it is genuinely funny. They're all of these little references. That are incredibly sophisticated without going over the head of your little ones. There's a kind of buster Keaton ask quality to it and I can watch them all the time. I really truly do not get sick of Shaun the sheep and my kids who are now as we said six nine still really love them. It's about that and maybe the British bake off are the only things that the entire family can agree on. If you've missed out on it please go back and watch it and you may find yourself watching it even without your children and where we find it. You can find it in a myriad of places. It is on Amazon prime. It is on Netflix. The Shaun the sheep extended universe of both movies and also the Wallace and gromit from the same animation studio are in many streaming places so if you just search Shaun the sheep you will find a gorgeous claymation that will make you. Giggle is a great pick and man. My kids now are nine thousand nine hundred sixteen and at no point in their lives. Has there been more than like a small handful of things that everyone in the family can enjoy at the same level at the exact same time so when you find one of those the love that you experience as a parent for that piece of entertainment is intense. I feel you on this one in a big way. Very very nice excellent. Pick Berry Hartman Steven. You'RE GONNA give us your second pick and This is not surprise. Me Buddy well. This one is specific to one of my kids particularly my older kid my son. Jona when he was little he obsessed over a cartoon that I watched as a kid called the wacky races and the wacky races were a very short lived. Hanna barbera cartoon aired in late. Nineteen sixty eight and a little bit in early sixty nine and then has kind of lived on in reruns. There's a DVD set that has like the complete collection of the wacky races. Hanna barbera cartoons are pretty primitive. You're talking about children's TV in the late sixties. You have some kind of squeaky gender stuff. There's like one female racer penelope pitstop. Who's like more concerned with her makeup than with racing? It has that name is amazing. Insert pitstop into my middle name. Very pitstop hardiman stuff hardiman The thing is though there's something about the way. This particular cartoon was structured where each episode of the show all of these goofy characters. They were the same characters. The plot couldn't be simpler. They're racing and at the end of each episode. One of the racers wins. There's a bad guy racer named Dick Dastardly. And his side kick Mutley. Who has that famous? Little wheezy laugh and my son who was obsessed with numbers kind of obsessed a certain amount of scorekeeping managed to latch into it. Not only as a piece of like fun cartoony entertainment but kind of latched onto it as like a statistician almost and really got obsessed with it. Even though there were only seventeen episodes he just watched them over and over and over again. Now the wacky races have existed in a couple of different forms. There's a wacky racist game for the we. The kids also played. This is also like electric company is one that got rebooted and it got rebooted a few years ago and once again if you're obsessed with the nineteen sixty eight version you're gonNA watch the version from twenty seventeen or two thousand eighteen and roll your eyes because it's not the exact entertainment that you grew up with but you look at the voice cast on this rebooted wacky races. It's Tom Kenny WHO's TV. Spongebob Jill Talley who's also voiced from. Spongebob she's also from Mister. Show like Tom. Kenny and Billy West. Who was stimpy. He was fry in Futurama. You have some really lovable voice. Cast working with this show. So lucky races isn't necessarily the top of very many people's list as far as like high quality children's programming but it was really important in my house and really had this nice kind of cross generational appeal where I got to feel nostalgia watching it and my kids hooked into it in ways that even I never did

A Mother's Love: The Death of Morgan Reid

"Tanya Paxton read grew up in a family of girls her parents wanted and John Saxton settled in Texas XS panhandle in the early nineteen fifties. John worked at the local electric company and Wanda stayed home with her daughters. And there are a few of them. The oldest Saxton Saxton daughter was beverly K. She was followed two years later by Rodeina then a year after that was Leslie and then my must've gotten tired because Catania. The baby was born four years after Leslie took a little break there and then that was the end of it yet. But this is the fifties four kids was not unusual at all. Aw No that wasn't Nanan. Woodley have like six years or so apart something but I'm four girls and six years four children and six years. It's a handful. No doubt absolutely now the three older girls were all lighter. Skinned with blue and green is tiny stood out. She had dark eyes dark hair and a dark complexion. Well I like the Milkman. Is My mother used to say. There is a maternal uncle uncle who was a fan of the lone ranger TV show and he began calling Tanya Tanto. The name of the Lone Ranger's native American sidekick so this nickname apparently caught on Tanya was no family as Tanto throughout her life. Yeah a little. I don't think that would fly today as far as political correctness but back then and that was totally something people did. Yeah of course. I don't think lone ranger would fly very well today either so no now. We'll beverly early K.. was eight years old when her parents brought Tanya home from the hospital and Beverly K of course loved her new baby sister and for a lot of the time she'd become primary caretaker for Tanya Beverly K even called Tanya her real live baby doll and just two months after Tanya's birth wander wander. The mother was hospitalized for appendicitis. which you know was a bigger deal back then? There was some hospitalization for several days and she had to rest and John of course had to work so beverly K took over pretty much all of the responsibilities of caring for her baby sister. Tanya in over the years of Tania's Childhood Childhood Wanda had multiple health problems. And I only bring these up because I think it could have affected the way that Tanya turned out unfortunately in a bad away Wanda was bedridden for arthritis mononucleosis hepatitis and even spinal meningitis. So bedridden for the better part of two years Wanda left Beverly K in charge again of a lot of things for a kid. You Know Young. She's like what ten by this time. Yeah not very very old but tiny would recall one of her earliest memories of her mother was when her mother was hospitalized and this was a fond memory she she also had some really good memories of her own hospitalization as a child Tanya hit a small cyst removed from under her left arm and because her mother Wanda was was in the hospital at the same time tiny was allowed to stay in the bed with her mother and have her individual attention for several hours. Now this is from a a child who really hasn't seen much of her mother. She pretty much been raised by her big sister so I could really think it's safe to say that the cemented some positive ideas ideas about being in the hospital for Tanya or thank so growing up. Tiny didn't have too many friends. Fortunately she had her sister's around of for the girls were active in their church choir and they traveled to different states to perform. Misses a real treat because the town where they lived in Texas was isolated. And there just wasn't anything to do there will not only was there not much to do but dad was super strict with those girls. One weird rule he has was was that They could date the same boy twice because that would lead to them. Getting serious and possibly Sibley becoming physically involved with the boy where we can have their right so he had some weird rules like that. He was very strict and when they were pretty young still. Oh John Faxed and left the electric company where he worked and he tried his hand at selling insurance he was pretty successful and his success. In sales built up his confidence vents and he ended up opening a medical supply store with a friend of his who owned a local pharmacy and John went on the road to make sales going to nursing zing homes doctors offices and even hospitals eventually wanted joined him and she took over the home. Healthcare Division of the company so healthcare had become the family business by this point and this is the environment that Tanya grew up in

Electroneum Is Alive And Well

"Okay? So we sell a couple years ago. Had Successful is CEO in that time when we started saying nobody renew quite how spicer is going to be waiting. Thought it was a very successful Huge community and we've had quite radically changing blockchain blockchain China. Unlike anybody else's don't use work we'd go to brought Janko proof of responsibility that we coined We have NGOs do all validation. Uh so that's interesting we partner with NGOs specifically because we some of the stuff we're doing on the ground in terms of twenty educate people to be able to through cryptocurrency. When they're on banked we enjoy to be perfect honest so it's really not sure or basically electronic? It's all about being a cryptocurrencies easy to use Barbara small five instant payments and Eight makes it easy to send value around the world very very quickly very low price point which gets the UN banked into a situation where they can earn money from Alice. Suppose that that such product really. It's not just about crypto. It's it's very empowering people that don't have it right now don't have the time abilities what you went on the viewers and listeners of watching this. I mean one the things I'm passionate about me and I was looking at a coconut coconut company in in the Philippines and what was happening with people paying the workers cash right. 'cause obviously there so that would have back then the word would go out there. And that would basically spend the money and whatever's left over the kids which would be significantly lower proportion of the actual income was with an bank system. I mean we're talking about bringing people to another level helping education as automated. Yeah yeah he has such wide ranging gene cut. Yeah well I know some people will dismiss cryptocurrency. But now you don't understand the doors unlock Ryan and once you get down that rabbit hole unexplained that they were really big use cryptocurrency from all perspective. What we said where is it really real pressing need and so we saw the unbagged has being that pressing need? I think that's been confirmed. Pretty much by FACEBOOK's Lieber project that's where we're going to talk and it's a massive massive mark one point seven billion people in the world but from our perspective but we don't really incentivize to learn any new scales if you've got nothing that you can use those skills to gain any extra money so it's a bit like when you're listening about calculus or whatever am I ever gonNA use your way. They'd be virtually anything if they're going to be subsistence bomb so actually if they can learn new skills fairly simple carry out just on their smartphone. Just start with a few quid building up enough money to perhaps boy a laptop that totally changes and any demographic so any countries that you sort of targeting the moment all the others we wrote down so so we go we go its data. You can buy directly from the electronic map a real time so you can buy a Duller top two dollars of your your your data directly an ATM. So we've voted out in South Africa Rodeo. In Brazil we got about ninety five percent coverage of the population in Brazil. So that's going really well. Wow we've goal will Turkey. We rolled out. And we've got loads of other countries that were just trying to get everything signed now and getting road out Lots of lots of places in Southeast Asia really interesting too often from the freelance economy Huge huge uses of that you mentioned the Philippines target for so in Brazil. Let's talk look through five percent coverage of ability to coach because I got a hundred million people and they say well I wouldn't say that I know electronially. Yeah we've got tens of thousands of new users a week coming in from From Brazil so we give away a little bit of electron you sort of reward for forgetting forget any voting the project. It's kind of all cost requisition for they come on a little bit like turn him off for maybe a month they could use a top at that point they realized actually this this has real value. Now that's pretty much the stage route but with furiously getting this piece of software finished Collini tasks which is the which is all platform for enabling enabling to sell a digital skill and we have another not for profit organization could task school. which is out there to to teach people at no cost some digital skills that they could selling incident and so what's revenue? How does it work what we're doing is we're pretty much in that twitter facebook page westbound just uses uses uses? Use It we. There are lots of different places we could add revenue stream in the future. And William tend to and we're not trying to do it so we've got a few BITs nonprofit. Yeah but that's so that we can work with NGOs without any hindrance the but the but they actually electric company can make money through Through the transport costs virtually free to send it around the world but we could very easily introduced a small fake. So that's that's one thing we could use and the second thing we could use these. The costs on the platform any tells so at the moment we are delivering one hundred percent of the value that straight through to the user so the person who does the job gets hundred percent most of the platforms out there around twenty percent plus so be very easy for us ten fifteen percent in the future and still be under the market so anytime has called right. Yeah yeah now. That's been ongoing. He's talked so you give them updates on that. Yeah sure sure so originally it was GONNA be Gig. GIG doesn't translate very well so we were out South East Asia. Africa GIG didn't work very well in terms of translation. Nice name. I liked it but we went off. More research ended up changing across to any tasks that is going to beat if not this month but so say certainly in Q.. Four twenty nine probably November. We'll get it into the first few hundred users on board at that stage and it's similar to sort of people our five or that type of freelancer platform. The enables people to list skill complete. And we've got some training courses this show people that actually there are quite a few skills you can do with fund don't you. You don't need to have a laptop you. Could you imagine access to meet you in from around the world and what we've done is really cool as well as we sell the company structure in a way that there's a ring fence company that doesn't do do we crypto and that enables its credit cards so the uses blanks digital agencies around. They can still buy your credit card could any other platform and then we go up a system where it goes off to a desk gets converted all kind of on the fly from pools a bit like transfer y so they were sitting there of posting of cash and he gets switch and route and then the person gets that. AT&T limits which they can cashier for various things at the other end interesting so I mean and the markets went up. A little tokens went a little treasury. Management didn't go on You guys still sitting pretty casualties. We've got We've now got maybe two and a half million euros in cash But we've got twenty five million dollars. Plus in in Treasury Rian Krypton so big more than doubled since the CEO and we kept it in exactly what we did and what we've we've raised in. bitcoin in a theory theory probably behalf of what it was but but largely we we might even have thirty million Treasury The account -posedly runs the scripture periodically. But it's Yeah we we didn't do anything on. Some people went off and did some fairly arcane fun of investments and try to make money out of it. We just thought you know what we raised in these things. We have a fight in cryptocurrency Stephen. bitcoin still ridiculously strong projects. Made sense to keep it in. Yeah look that make sense as well. Good he's the but some Some money leftover because we look we. We saw the music off court heavily. Has that affected the progress of electronic Moving the full of the actual total value having decrease so much as many of the other top. Yeah I think sentiment has been difficult. I think that's that's been the hardest thing from my point of view. I would like to have seen its value. Be At least where it was when people perched in the first ingest tips. So I'm not crazy crazy one point And and who knows what. We were very difficult because I thought lawyers are lawyers talk about price in any way but We we haven't really started spending those funds on promoting yet because we thought there's no point if we just started promoting two years ago. which is one of these guys? Have done tokens go promoting their money promoting to the cryptocurrency world specifically because they just want people to buy more of it but making the project project was nothing so we got all of our technology stack in place and we'll very very near to the completion. At which point advertising those projects out to people. We've got some. We've spoken number times about really big deals when we've got some really big deals but best so difficult to pull together but one of those will drop especially once we get one of the bigger NGOs come out to say. Hey Look we support. We've had three NGOs already come out saying we're in. I support the electronic project and running invalidates in those so. We're still seeing to edge into that sort of Much more Commercial Commotion Wishes. We're much much more valuable. Suppose something legitimate yeah. People people are starting to understand. Actually these guys are doing something different. And they're doing something something's GonNa Bring Change
