Elon Musk Teases Tesla AI Day for Summer 2021
"Now we're here today. We're gonna be talking about some recent. Us tweets about tests a day. Looks like we may have a tentative date for when that maybe scheduled we'll talk about what to expect for that event we've also got a little bit of an update on the model s. next refresh and a couple of other stories as well. Quick look at the stock tesla today finished up nine tenths of a percent to seven hundred and thirty eight dollars five cents that did trail slightly behind the nasdaq up. One point three percent and volume really fell off today for tusla about twenty seven and a half million shares traded today versus the pretty high volumes. We had yesterday and the day prior yesterday. Of course we did have that coin based direct listing. So i know a lot of people like to take a look at what is doing what they're trading. They did sell off some tesla yesterday. That always seems to get a little bit of attention on social media but definitely a normal process for arc. Tesla's diller top holding in many funds it has risen above ten percent in some of those funds and generally when that happens arc tends to sell down a little bit and on the coin based point arctic initiate positions there across funds at about zero point seven five percent weight so selling tesla would help provide liquidity for that new position. So nothing too surprising there. I just wanted to point out because again it gets talked about. And that may have been a little bit of pressure on tussle in general yesterday as tesla had a tougher day arc. Probably not the only one to make a move like that all right with that being said let's get into ai elon. Musk caddy number of tweets yesterday about tesla and their progress in artificial intelligence. He kicked it off by noting. That quote tesla ai. Slash autopilot engine team is making excellent progress solving real world. Ai and quote he followed that up with a number of tweets some of which related to full self. Self-driving the beta button. We'll get to those in a second but he also responded to a question asking. When can we expect a day. Yulon said probably late july so first thing there anytime we have a timeline from and we got to be cautious on that he saying probably here so be a little bit more cautious. Even this is an event so it is a little bit more up to tesla when they hold this. But i would assume they wouldn't want to hold an event like this until the fd beta is broadly released.

"Camille says she found herself sinking into the low tides wet sand as she walked along Constitution Beach on Thursday. She eventually found herself stuck up to her knees, unable to move.

Fidelity wants to launch a bitcoin ETF
"Fidelity becomes the latest to file for a bitcoin. Atf yes fidelity have added their hat to the ring as the sixth live etf application. I jokingly tweeted yesterday that i think the is going to have to allow one just because they get sicker reviewing them. And i don't think that's far off the wise origin. Etf has fd funds management as the sponsor with fidelity service company as the administrator and fidelity digital as custodian. Here's a fun. Easter egg as well. Alex thorn formerly of avon ventures which was a fidelity investment group. Pointed this out. He tweeted out fidelity's bitcoin. Etf is named wise origin. Why souto she in kanji means wisdom or sense. Nakamoto in kanji means base root or origin. Pretty lit if you ask me. Interestingly this wasn't the only. Etf news apparently goldman sachs also filed for notes. The pay out to an etf that may have exposure to bitcoin or cryptos. This is definitely toe dipping. Compared to what twitter excitedly reported from the start but still fidelity and sort of goldman getting in on the bitcoin. T.f game in the same day is pretty back
Congress adopts $1.9 trillion stimulus package
"Will listen. I already love you. And now i just i want to kiss you and hug you and squeeze you over the covid relief bill because it really is as joe biden would say a b. Fd right. i mean it is the biggest progressive piece of legislation. Maybe ever right. Well they're saying maybe since the days of lyndon b johnson When so many of our fundamental bills were signed into into law but That's a long time ago on generations. Nerve law have passed. Since since then. And i so excited. And so proud and let your. He's only there in cresent for like a month and a half. I arkle yeah. That's operation warp speed. Yeah i mean honestly the number of vaccinations. Just the i think the amount of hope people are finally feeling. I mean and also just the contrast you said while the gop lear was reading dr seuss. Democrats passed a one point. Nine trillion dollar stimulus bill that will cut child poverty in half and deliver urgently-needed relief on it. Just it's sort of extraordinary that they that not one. Republican voted for a bill. That has you know a in a pandemic that killed five hundred. What twenty five thousand. Americans are more than that. I isn't it the politics over just completely eliminates me. I understand the only grace words. A partisan issue is in the congress. It sow because out in the world In our world The seventy five percent sometimes more in bowling. What this spill need this. Bill appreciated an. It's it's really a sea change in the interpretation of what government means. I think we have passed point. Were you know Government is the problem not the solution. People are looking to cover now and they're gonna get it. Joe biden said help is on the way. And it's it's coming. Yeah vote on this. It's going to be great. You'll think we're in the middle of watching well. My dad's party. I mean won a major party in america. Just commit suicide. I just i mean this. Bill has eighty three percent. I believe last poll. I saw public approval rating on. I mean they're they're hanging onto donald trump who helped them lose the white house the house and the senate who is actively telling people send money to me not to the republican party. I mean what do you make of. What's happened to your colleague here republican colleagues. How do they go home. And they say well yes. I voted against sending you that chuck. I voted against extending unemployment insurance. No your kids are not going to get that tax credit that's a alleviate poverty and we don't want to put food on your table and so we voted. No i i. i don't. I don't know what the you know. The message can possibly be well. As you tweeted representative he said as americans suffer and demand Relief and systemic change republicans across the country of united to suppress the boat. It's disgusting. We must pass the john. Lewis voting rights act. I keep saying. I only anything else matters unless we passed that because these bills are just. They dropped any pretense of voter fraud. They are just absolutely trying to stop. Cut the amount of people that can vote right cutting rolling voting to try to get away with vote by mail. Trying i mean i. I can't even keep up with all the techniques right georgia. They thought well you know that. Sunday voting where black people how souls to the polls that lets them vote. That brings out the vote mark. So let's just get rid of sunday voting. It's so blatant racism The is just shocking really. They don't care though they're shameless. they're totally shameless. Do what they think. They have to do to pick their own voters to limit people's right to vote. It's
What's going on with the New Orleans Pelicans?
"This year's deputy f team the new orleans pelicans. I don't know what baker this team you can catch them on any given night and it's a completely different experience than the last night. I don't know if the players make sense together. Actually i'm pretty sure they don't. I don't really know what the overall philosophy is. I don't know if they're trying to be a playoff team if they're trying to be rebuilding. I'm just constantly confused and there are some optimism because they want a couple of games around people here they go here. Zion and then they get killed last night by the bulls and have one hundred thousand breakdowns. And i guess my first question to you is the pelicans what the fuck you. How many exclamation points can we tack onto that. Wt fd think. But i was hoping you could answer this question. Because i think you're spot on in that it's so much depends your view of this team on when you catch them even just like what stage in the season. You caught them because for a minute. It looked like they were going to live up to their personnel and be a tough minded offensive team. Scrounging out offensive rebounds to get points and just kinda struggling on that in because they're spacing issues the script has completely flipped. And now this is all of a sudden very competent offense. I think park has really driven by brandon. Ingram is i ion williamson. They're making that part of it work but the defense. Jesus christ i mean it is. There is inconsistent defensively as really any team out there. Yeah i would say other than brooklyn. It's the team that's most likely to give up one hundred forty on any given night to any team. That knows what they're doing. I so if you actually look at their stats and you haven't been watching that much and you look at the stats and you look at williamson in ingram and all right. Those guys are having good years pretty efficient. And then you look at lonzo and you look at bledsoe. Lonzo shoot thirty seven percent from three so she and forty percent so going into the season like well. Their guards can't shoot. They're not going to be able to have enough space. Well their guards are actually shooting. Okay but then. When i watch everybody together. I don't have a five-man line-up that i liked like yesterday. They're playing Kyra lewis with He he got a little more run and he's really interesting. Rookies really fast. He's little darren foxy and gave them an energy that i was like. Well maybe this. Maybe i would like this version of the pelicans more. If fast you know now unleash sign a little bed. Go up and down a little bit more. But i still don't know who the other two teammates would be with cairo. Lewis design and branding. And i guess the fundamental question for me is do zion and brandon. Ingram makes sense together on a team. That's actually trying to win the title. I think they make sense on offense but the question was i on really broadly. As who are you going to put the five that's gonna make up for all. He doesn't do defensively right now. That's always been my issue with the idea of playing small and we are putting him at the five his rotations is. Aren't there really the pelicans as a team. If i were an opposing coach. I would say this is a team. We can beat him rotation every they are. Pass away from defensive breakdown every time out on the floor and keep moving the ball. You keep doing what you're supposed to do they will they will mess up in a whether it's undersized guy in the corner doesn't quite rotate over all the way. Jj radic or josh. Hart they try hard. They do what they can. But they're not equipped to be helped rotation defenders. If a guy like zion isn't going to be one so i mean i'm i'm kinda bullish on the anger rooms ion depot in general but i am really struggling to see how you put together those lineups. I can see how they kind of got into this conundrum where they clearly wanted to have some veterans early. Some veterans fell into their lap in terms of what was available and trying to get some pics and make their other moves but long term. It's a weird team to build with. And then you get lonzo into this conversation to and what they want to do with him. It's it's kind of messy.
Germany Expected To Put Right-Wing AfD Under Surveillance For Violating Constitution
"Government is expected to place the country's largest right wing opposition party under surveillance next week for violating the constitution. As NPR's Rob Schmitz tells us This comes after a year's long probe into the party. According to German news reports. The federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution is wrapped up a two year investigation into the alternative Fur Deutschland Party or a FD. And it will soon place the party and its members under state surveillance. They FD, which was founded eight years ago, is known for its opposition to the European Union and Immigration and as 88 members in the Bundestag, making up more than 12% of parliament.
Germany Expected To Put Right-Wing AfD Under Surveillance For Violating Constitution
"Now where the government is expected to put the country's largest right wing opposition party under surveillance. This means several dozen politicians in Germany's parliament may soon be monitored for racist and other unconstitutional behaviors that threatened Germany's political system. NPR's Rob Schmitz reports in German. It's called the For fasting shits. If you translate the name literally, it's called agency for the protection of the Constitution. Melania Moniz Berlin bureau chief of the German newsmagazine Der Spiegel, She says the fall fashion shoots is on the lookout for potential threats to Germany's democratic constitutional system. This agency has the power and not only to do surveillance on fringe groups, domestic terrorists threats, but also to keep an eye on any Political institution like a political party. The driving force behind the creation of the agency and its surveillance powers were the American led allied forces who after World War two helped write a new German constitution with an eye towards preventing the return of Nazi ideology. That's why the very first article of the Constitution guarantees the right to human dignity. And now the fall fashion shoots is on the verge of making an unprecedented move, placing Germany's largest right wing opposition party, the alternative fur Deutschland, or a F D. Under surveillance for violating that very article of the Constitution. This comes nearly a year after a far right faction of the F D, known as their flu eagle was put under surveillance by the for fashion shoots for the same reasons. A man who has written a book about the FD says In its report, The agency provided examples of politicians denigrating Muslim migrants to Germany, for example, they were all treated as potential terrorists. They were the humanized the speeches they were compared to animals. A hefty politicians also trivialized Germany's Nazi past. You know it. Because I'm sick of flip of age. Speaking at an FD event in 2017, the leader of the feudal faction beyond Hecker, called the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. A monument of shame, I believe a finder. It was a year later, a FD parliamentary leader Alexander Gallant, like in Germany's Nazi era to a speck of bird droppings, and more than 1000 years of what he called successful German history. Women. I'm sure really, I ft off wonders of all off. If you look at how the FDA has been behaving for some time Now it's clear. It's acting against our democracy and our constitution. Social Democrat parliamentarian Thomas Hitler is a member of the committee that keeps checks on Germany's intelligence agencies. He says. The for fashion shoots has spent two years gathering evidence that'll inform their decision to put the FT under watch but FT politician New York that Starsky says the agency is run by Angela Merkel's government staffed with members of her CDU party. He says the CTU is worried about how fast the FDA has become a presence in Germany's parliament. The party now has 88 members in the Bundestag. If you have no opposition party, which is very successful within very short time, and we become a danger for the ruling party's, especially for the conservative CTU, and this is the reason by they are trying to stigmatize us. Really to put us in the Nancy corner and also to spread wrong rumors. But Social Democrat Hitler says the process is not political, and its findings must withstand legal scrutiny. You got Bestwick states. There are 50, often under different conditions, Wife reported decision must be so watertight legally that it will stand up in the courts. The FT have legal recourse to contest the decision. And the agency isn't about to lose face in court with the poor case. A hefty politician Hans Meyer, already under surveillance for being part of the far right, Floegel Wing, told NPR by email. He's worried that civil servants like police officers will cancel their membership out of fear of losing their jobs. Well the for fashion shoots is able to tap phones and use informants to gather information on whomever it monitors. Meyer says he hasn't noticed the surveillance whenever Germany announces its decision. The FDA is expected to file lawsuit challenging it and that may take years to resolve. Rob
Byzantine Fault Tolerant Consensus
"Everyone this is ted. I'm from cornell university. I'm finishing up my phd now my fifth year. I also worked part time at avalanches which is in our startup. i co-founded with adviser. Tell me a little bit about your phd work. What are your specific areas of interest. Yes so i think for the a democ- part you know as a phd. I mostly were distributed systems and that sounds like a very broad topic so more specifically within the systems i'm mostly focused on consensus and within the consensus topic. They are also different kinds of consensus protocol. I mostly focused on so called. Byzantine fault tolerant consensus protocols or t protocols. We are nowadays very hot topics. Pickus people are interested in blockchain technology and walk. Chang's need such kind of consensus in order to work. We'll definitely spend some time. Talking about blockchain byzantine fault. Tolerance is not as newest blockchain. So it's a i guess. An older theory. Could you help some of the listeners with the basics. What is bef t absolutely so. Yeah indeed. I think there has been like misconception. Many people think of b. f. Some kind of new stuff especially in that community even when we're talking about blockchain's but to me when i started my phd at cornell this of t kind of consensus as the coolest consensus at heard of at a time. And before actually dive into that world so what is not so byzantine fault. Tolerance has a weird name. So what is byzantine is. Sounds like the name of the old empire in l. a probably medieval or or some time period and the reason that this kind of protocol got his name as thanks to leslie lamport so may have heard of this research. His very well known ing Systems community clothing his works on taxes all sorts of consensus stuff. The also proposed the name for this new career of consoles protocols to be. Fd consists and beat byzantine just is part of the story if you read his paper about the whole consensus. So let's forget about the name of paying so what this protocol is usually about as maybe you are familiar with the phnom visiting kind of consensus or you know people usually call them crash fault tolerant protocols such as taxes or rafts so those protocols they work great and they're widely adopted by the current industry. Google uses passes as a core for cloud service and the reason that we need to another category of consensus protocol is because this kind of protocol a does not assume malicious behavior by the participating machines nose so that means than those can only crash build knows can only like human beings they can always say. Oh i die and then you just shut down or crashed without creating any noise into the channel into the network so then people begin to think about how we should handle the case where there some node. That could go crazy. Say i'm an node than when i don. I don't die peaceful eight. But i crave bunch of noises. The noise could be interfering the entire natural and even worse. I could be you know. Some zombie not controlled by the x. Turno attackers so i could exhibit arbitrary behaviour visit lab. I'm like a you know the insider send on by some other parties. So i'm like spying this system. So how do you handle this kind of situation in a protocol. While at the same time you still want to achieve the same goal as the noun byzantine one usually call them or crush full tolerant protocols we want to achieve the same goal but was different assumption

Selling During a Pandemic with Steli Efti
"Still. Fd thanks so much for joining me on startups for the rest of us for your third appearance so much way back yeah man. It's always good to to chat with you. I think we talked. Maybe seven or eight months ago and obviously heard your intro. They know you're you've just been steeped in sales startup sales for what eight nine ten years ten years fan. We're getting we're getting older. I think today I want to into some stuff that that is related to the current crisis of sales is one thing but sales during a pandemic and Quarantine Kelsey uncertainty imagining. It has to change during this time and so I think this kickoff. I'd love to hear your thoughts on how you've seen that change how you can help people kind of adjust to this mindset and then. I think we'll dive into a little bit about how can companies position themselves? We will have a post corona virus world. And how do we position ourselves to really be in a good position there? Everything is global pandemic as it turns out finding totally paper. Hang out with your family. So sales isn't different in that in that sense. You know what's funny? The biggest thing that I've noticed. Is that the good. And the bad just gets amplified during a time like this. When you rent the level to ten the weaknesses are just like amplified so much and I think the sensibilities and sensitivities of people are just like massively increased so she too big campaign level trend will. I'm sure we're going to dig deeper and deeper go to the nitty gritty and the details on the technical suffer people but this two big things that I've seen so far. One is kind of a counter steering to even more selfishness in aggressiveness. So sales people entrepreneurs business people because they exactly up so much. Kind of the worst sight came out in. They're like I don't care I need money right now. I need to hustle any to push. I need to be more aggressive than usual any to be more selfish than usual. So you'd get these emails. That are like so weird like I'll give you an example like a person that I've known for ten years now right a business person that I've known continues. We helped each other out. Here's a couple of businesses is a couple of like does a lot of content. And we've always been friendly of always supported him with the stuff and he supported us with with stuff and then we had an email exchange recently about being on the podcast and he was like well. I it was a personal exchange. Is All about like yeah. Don't worry about me. Steady life is good. Business is good like I'm doing fine. But then he was communicating. Somebody on my marketing team was saying well. If Stella once on the podcast we have to charge ten fifteen km for that because we have to survive and that was forwarded to me and it was such a weird thing to do like. Tell me directly. Hey everything is fine but then tell somebody on my marketing team. I'm GonNa Charge fifteen thousand and then sell it can be on my pocket no word about what's in it for us. What is the benefit. What is the value? I'm going to get. It's such a selfish common. I'm going to charge ten thousand because I need to survive. I mean we all need to survive. But that's good southern really compelling selling proposition for me and then it was also a weird because to me the statement was the world is perfect and then to another personal. My team statement was I needed to charge ten K. Of the world is ending and that even worse when I said let's politely decline. Let's say thanks. But no thanks. When the market person responded. Hey it's going to be outside our budget but we wish you best of luck. Hopefully everything's GonNa be fine. He Okay just for you guys nine K. But you have to take this week or something like that though. Lead his thing her. What is this a special offer again? This week feels really count got it feels so selfish so tone deaf so sleazy and really this is. It only takes a moment to ruin your reputation. It really changed how I think and feel about this individual right I was like wow. I never want to deal with this person again. This is so weird and to me. This is desperation and fear manifesting itself in the ugliest form possible and. I don't think that's a way to succeed. I don't think that's the way for you to make your business succeed in. That's compelling like I don't think he he balked tons and tons of guests who paid ten K. Because I pay attention and there's no guests on this podcast recently just and so to me. That's one way to go like people being super selfish. Those are rare to be honest most entrepreneurs and more sales people that have become uber aggressive. But there's a lot of tone deafness in the world right these kind of emails. You've gotten them. I've gotten them people that listen to us right now. Gotten where it's like. Don't you know what's going on in the world wide? Are you sent me this email? It seems like so kind of disconnected from board is happening in the world. So that's one thing the other trend that I see more off though and I think this is going to be the problem with the people that are listening to us now. Which is the overreaction. The different in the opposite direction. Which is people in sales people and founders having such high anxiety and fear to upset anybody that they'd just stopped communicating stopped selling stop operating because the thought was well. How could I ever try to do business during a time like this people are going to get upset with me if I send them an email or if I give them a call if I tried to close a deal that so I can't do that right now? People are hurting and I think that's a really bad idea as well. I've told this to more people than ever before I've had so many one on one conversations and please always the same listen number one. The will is not going to become a better place. All of stopping work. Like if I stopped selling rob. My future is less secure. Might families futures less secure. My employs futures less secure. Nobody benefits from me stopping to work. Because things tough out there like. I'm not helping anybody really. So it's not the time to dig a hole and be like I'm GonNa just lane here late low and wait to all of this because the truth is that this might take a really long time to be quote unquote over. Whatever the hell that means right we all know and every day where you don't do business you're making the problem big impossible you make the economic slow the economy less secure your making your family at Your Business Security. Nobody's been helped by this. So my big ask to people has been especially during a crisis you have to keep selling. But you don't do it in a tone deaf way and I'm sure we're going to go into more detail like my basic philosophy is. I'M GONNA send a sales email. I'M GONNA make a sales call. I'm going to try to close a deal I am done in. We'll talk about this me shifted close and we're asking. We had one record month after the other this year from January up until May of pre pace right every month. We've had more prepaid than ever before in the company's history because we made that a focus will be started. I didn't know if this would work. I was like who wants to prepay for year. Two time like this probably. Nobody turned out quite a lot of our customers. Wanted to and we can talk about how we did it in wide worked. But you'd be surprised people were still buying and selling in. You have to keep selling of the way to do it in a thing in a respectful way is not to be overly aggressive and be like selfish. I we need to increase our price because we have to survive. Here's the contract. You have two hours to cloak to sign it but also not an overly apologetic way. I know everything is bad for you. You hurting your frayed. I'm afraid you read the bad news this morning. Nobody wants to hear that like people already have enough exerting their life. They don't need you to. Ino them with ten links about world politics. That are terrible. How is that helping them? That isn't helping them and that isn't making. You look like a good person either so my approach has always been during this crisis. You want to be honest. Not fake positive. Not fake optimistic honest. Hey is everything all right. Are you good all right? How are things going right now? Are you continue to do business? Are you stopping everything? Tell me about your world. Tell me about your forecast of the world like do you think that things have been pick up again in a month in two months any lake signs that you looking for before you kind of step in to put the pedal to the metal and do more things purchase things so investing more things will decide how to move forward like. I'll ask some of these questions but always will ask them with what I would call high energy. I I want to talk to people not with taken to not with fake positive but with energy. Because there's a funny thing during these times when everybody we're talking to is exiled any written and depressed and fearful and pissed and all the news. We reading our full of like overwhelming facts. The last thing we need is one more person that talks does that makes us feel even more about the world or that seems low energy or apologetic or fearful. Let's not the kind of energy will on us or on US House with but if you can talk to somebody today that even during these crazy times is honest and frank and straightforward with you but seems to have energy seems to have the ability to make decisions to do. It makes people feel better. It makes people feel like yeah. I mean I can have a conversation. I can make a decision. I can take action right even during these times. And there's this old quote from her name is Angela or something people can can Google and find it is. The people won't remember your name. People remember the place but people will never forget how you made them feel and I think that especially during times where we're also anxious and afraid overwhelmed when we interact with people that make us feel calm and confident. Make US feel a little bit more energized than before. Those are the type of people that we will want to gravitate towards and talk more to. We will remember that these people stand out. So That's how we've been selling clothes and how I approached reaching out to people like us. The frank don't be fake but don't be meek. Don't be like the whisper. Don't be apologetic. The Zeino the tons of hard. Sorry that I'm talking to you right now. Nobody needs that. Nobody being helped by that attitude and energy that you bring to the table. So that's the biggest thing. Don't be afraid to sell selling good for you. Good for your family selling good for your prospects. He just telling them something. That's that could provide value. We could talk a lot more about it but that's kind of my big by big spiel around this. Don't be so afraid because there is a way to do it. That won't piss off. That won't make you a bad person but it will make the world kind of turn and economist move forward in Your Business still operate even during times weights harder to talk to prospects employs deals.

And I like that because I've been spending a lotta time reviving one of my courses the courses how to start building your wealth investing in the stock market. I've gone through and spent nearly a hundred hours over the last four or five weeks rebuilding that course from scratch and all the tools in it as well as translating it in various languages and launching it so. I know what you're talking about John Ian in. I'm trying to follow it myself and I challenged listeners to do the same of course if you need to lay around and relax and take some downtime. Johnny also mentioned that that is okay. And if you're like me you're GonNa get excited about what he shared in there. He's talked about learning new things and Johnny is learning how to do handstands and as he said you can find it all on the internet which made me think darn it. I WANNA learn how to do handstand. So I'M GONNA be checking that out today. Remember that money's going to be made and lost throughout this crisis. Try to get yourself on the winning side Johnny. Fd I WANNA share tips on how to make the most out of this experience that we're all into I. There's a quote that's been going around that I really like. But also caveat and it's if you don't get out of this quarantine with new skills new knowledge side business or side-hustle started the new never lack time. You lacked discipline. I believe that is something that a lot of people need to get off their butts at the same time. If you need this time to rest just rest just take this time and say you know what for the first time in my life? I have an excuse to just lay around and do nothing for two weeks meditate actor Yoga. I can listen to books audio books and just take the time to really relaxed. Have you need that? Do that need help reach out to someone. There's plenty of people who are willing to help but if you're scrolling smartphone all day in bed eating ice cream and snacks. He complaining about how things are. Get off your butt. Because there's a lot of money is going to be made during this time on Monday. We'd be lost. A lot of people wouldn't get fat. Wouldn't get really a shape. It's up to you. Which side you WanNa be on for me. My perfect routine is to treat it like a normal day. I wake up. I do work in my laptop for few hours but then also set time to do the things that I wish I had had to do so every morning. The first thing I do is I spent thirty minutes learning a foreign language. Second that I've always wanted to learn more for few hours and then I practice a skill that I've also never had time to do. Been doing handstands in a great at homework out. Does it require equipment? Plenty tutorials on Youtube and to hobbyists skill and a mind focus. That really has helped me get through this so I don't know what you're going to be but I would definitely choose something that expand your mind whether it's reading learning a language learning a new skill and physical. Well it gets you focused and could shape wire home as far as investments or stocks. Just realize. There's GonNa be a lot of money to be made a lot of money to be lost this time. And even if you guess right the government might come in and make some laws and and change things around basically put their scale so even if you were right good all go wrong so for me up sticking to the shoe everything talk about invest like Voss and upholding strong while buying when it's slow WanNa know more about what I'm doing my daily life as well as investment.
Ireland election: 26% want 'grand coalition' involving Fine Gael, Fianna Fáil and smaller parties - poll
"We will start in island where political parties are still trying to figure out how all if the results of last weekend's election can be assembled into government. The election was notable for its abrupt. Ending of the century-old duopoly of the fina foil and finagle parties. Now very much in the mix I'll shine fain of unsavory recent history and capitus skeleton closet in the interest of keeping Shin Fain and perhaps certain of their associates out of the republic's government a grand coalition of Phoenix. Oil and Finna. Gale has been suggested the as we go to both fina foil and Finna Gail appear unenthused by this prospect James. First of all in this specific instance we will talk about the wider principle of grand coalition. Shortly but in this specific instance. Would it be right of FINA? File Fina foil rather and Finna Gail to do that because Xinfang got more votes than any of the other parties obviously not enough to command a majority in the oil but they are. As of the other Saturday the most Popular Party in Ireland They therefore entitled to have a shot governing In my understanding I may have misremembered. They got the most votes but not quite the most the most And I would suggest that if you can claim a sort of set to legitimacy you have it but essentially if you can for if you are the largest party. The general principle is you have the first chance to try and form a government Island is much more sort of formalized sort of coalition talks that we would have our electoral system here If she can clearly doesn't have the maths for To get a majority guide a coalition. That would work. There's nothing illegitimate about the other parties. Tried to find that the issue sort of comes around grand coalitions because they're always a profoundly sort of using prospect and they sort of designed to be that sort of hope in a sort of proportional system is that you know parties of the left or of the rights to make politics very warm dimensional which isn't anymore To between them have nothing common that they can actually a fairly big shared agenda done. So you know you get one party of the left. A couple of small satellites it can actually pursue a green agenda liberal agenda. Whatever it wants if you end up in the situation where you have unsavory parties Ashim Fain may still be many voters Republic of Ireland As far right parties awesome might be elsewhere if the only way to prevent yourself teaming up with them is to team up with the mainstream opposition. You end up with the government doesn't really please. Many vitus doesn't agree on very much in won't get very much done and the issue with these grand coalitions. He's always a K. You might be able to hold this together. You might even be able to hold it together for a full term. But you won't get very much done you wait. Make people very happy and so what what's going to happen at the next ballot ballot box to sort of make voters reject that sort of extreme party. That meant you couldn't form the coalition. You want it well. That is one of the arguments I guess against a grand coalition in this instance that it might just annoy enough people to teach in fine up for an actual win at the next election but John Is. There are there circumstances in which it is justified putting together a grand coalition which could very easily be portrayed and indeed may even be an establishment stitch-up. Well yes I mean remember. Australia's run by just such an arrangement for twenty years. Or so the whole thing broke apart In catastrophically as in the last year and it was not the most inspiring a government. As as James said I mean it didn't add to excite people in a lot of people take a certain amount done and Austria continue to function. But that's Australia. I think a lot depends on which country you have got. The coalition of what political culture is a grand coalitions including Shin Fain? Of course bring out a whole host of problems which included in your introduction Which don't apply in other countries grand coalitions for example in Germany That might include the FD in any shape or form. Would I think Two days annoy an awful lot more people and rightly so So I guess the Bland Art is. It all depends. Well James Germany's actually quite a good example of this because the Shin fine and afdc a not comparable in many respects but they are comparable in the days a certain amount of queasiness among mainstream parties Attached to the idea of dealing with them. Is it again right? If a party is popular as Xinfang clearly is now in the Republican violent for other parties to say on point of principle. We are not going to do with them. I think the whole point of a political parties to represent a set of principles and if your principles reject a party with a history of violence or if they reject a quite far right party with some very dark racial overtones. That's well and good. That's what your voters Bhakti today when they voted you in so I think it's entirely legitimate for parties to rule out certain other coalition partners. The issue is that does often leave you with the only option of sort of teaming up with your main opposition party to leave that one out

"Put eight hundred equity and you're GonNa put twenty two hundred into the fixed income component of Baan. EGF So you get kind of nervous purpose. What what I've done is I've created a thing that I call red light green light which is just a very simple thing that's based upon the tools that I've I've learned which is called? Fema are fundamentals valuation waist momentum and risk and saying okay. Let's take these four items mix them together and see if they can tell us. Only thing I really want to know is if the market is like crazy high. If it's crazy high I just need a red light to flash say okay. At least I know it's probably be crazy on and if it is flashing green it's crazy low. I'm not giving any trading rules or anything off of that. It's just that it's an indication and then basically basically what I say is look if you're a person that really gets stressed out about it. If you see it flash crazy I read just take the eight hundred that you would normally they put into equity and put it all into bonds and when you see it flash crazy green maybe take twenty that you'd put in to bonds is that particular month and put that into equity and that's the only way that I can come up with kind of a rules based system that allows allows someone to control their emotion a bit and you it it only flashes red or green ten percent of the time and so I try to keep it to an absolute minimum minimum so that just gives an idea for an end for those people that don't even really WanNa be that sophisticated then just do that eighty twenty eighty twenty every every single month regardless don't worry about where the stock market is. As long as you're contributing her long-time you have anything to add to that. Yeah I could definitely see that being a good tool to take away something motions from it and just make make it feel like you're you're. You're still getting their good value. I actually do something similar were where I have three three Ats All three are low cost index funds through vanguard. I have the total stock market which is about three thousand and funds very diversified. I have one that as a small cap value stocks so slightly smaller companies that you know are not the values that they're not over over priced like a high high ticket tech stocks that is just really hot right now and also have emergent merging markets fund so low taste of the rest of the world and what I do is whenever I put in I I've been putting in two thousand dollars a month every every month for the last few years I'll go in and sometimes I'll just buy whatever's on sale like if one is has dropped. I'm like Oh this emerging. Markets Fund seems like it's it's it's dipped. I'll put a lot of you know sometimes even all all three thousand of that or an out just kind of take a look at the three and just whatever's the best value. I'll put my money in that. One gives me a little bit of control at but I would say even better than that would be set it on auto invest and never look at it about that is by far the best way to guarantee. You'll you'll do it every month and you'll take the emotions out of it yeah. I I agree with that. In fact I do calculation to say if you were forty years old and you made a one person made a choice just to set it and forget it in May contribution whereas the other person decided to move their money a little bit into more into equity more into bonds. Bond Fund like I explain Blaine. What you find is? The improvement over a long period time is actually tiny. Let's say the long term return is seven percent. If you did the red light green light you'd probably get to seven point three so truthfully doesn't add a lot of value but sometimes it it adds some emotional stability in sometimes that emotional control is something that can keep someone investing which is really the most important thing definitely one hundred percent at at and actually one of the reasons why even invest manly and I just don't have it on our invest is because I enjoy shopping for investments assessments. I enjoy the bike process and a satisfies my craving to go out and buy things I think when I used to live in San Francisco my taping addiction was going on Amazon and seeing you know what should I buy this week or this month. You know going to the homestore's thinking you know what new appliance nine-story need or how should I decorate my house. What go into the mall and thinking what you know when you close? Should I buy a new car. Should I buy I. I really believe that if I was still leaving the US and had all the time and money on my hands out probably have my you know beyond the corvette dealership getting a new C. Eight right now and I'm. I'm so glad that I'm in a position where I'm traveling and I physically cannot carry anything and I've been trying to carry on only the last year where my only shopping is buying assets and no longer liabilities an and that's the key really when you get switched from buying liabilities over to assets said things that appreciate you've made huge progress all right well.

This year is going to be in Cancun Mexico so I hope to see is out and one of the other ones that's fantastic. I think we should definitely get into the show notes the information about those so anybody listening can check it out well now. It's time to show your worst investment ever since no one goes into worst investment Zinke it will be tell us a bit about the circumstances leading up to it and then tell us your story yeah definitely so I actually chose three because because I think there's so many lessons to learn on each ones and I'll quickly go go over them. I would say the biggest most annoying one is buying crypto currency and bitcoin seeing that just tank down. I still hold onto some ripple just 'cause I just hate selling loss finally I I I. I bought an Bitcoin at eighteen thousand just because of the kind of the foam how hyped up it was even though I knew it was not a commute investment and I would say the other ones have been having you know like getting into peer to peer lending club and just having my money tied up for five years and just just seen default after default default and just thinking man this was all the money ahead and not only could I not get it out but people were just flaking out on. I'm paying you know paying it back in its complete unsecured but I would say out of the one loss that I think a lot of people don't think about out with one big mistake that I've been very conscious of is keeping money in cash or not investing it for these last couple years thinking that's the market you know is due to go down any day now. Redo for big recession of big crash at it but it's been you know two three years and all the potential gains that I've lost on to me that's probably financially the biggest hit and before we go deeper into that. Let me ask you just so you can let listeners know lending club. Is I remember it. Wasn't that started in San Francisco on the West Coast. Yeah it probably was and it was it was I think it was my first ever investment because I thought the concepts on an amazing sort of having to go to a bank and apply for loan you can just ball someone else you know not a family or or a friend but you can do these these small loans twenty five dollars or one hundred dollars at a time and it just sounds like a great concept ended lending club split dad up or were they just a broker where they were giving you a direct relationship with the person that was buying that are there was doing that yeah. They were split up some immediate really really really easy so instead of somebody you know asking one person for twenty five dollars loan. Maybe they wanted two thousand five hundred to fix their house or affixed your business or pay off high interest credit card they would ask for twenty five hundred dollars but instead of one person giving them the full mount it would be divided by the one hundred different people or different people and he's made it much more palatable so then what they were providing really was what a bank typically does is diversify its lending running across. Many different borrowers so on in theory. It seemed like it should be a really good thing what went wrong. I think the biggest problem was there wasn't backed by anything and I think people can just default Lennon club with a much repercussions. I don't even know if negative effects of credit or not so would've had happened after about three years is people just stopped paying off their own thinking while no one else is paying an awful. Why should I that's a yeah and then wasn't there's scandal with lending club that the CEO or something like that can't remember this? I heard something about it. I mean I think it's a bad management their turnaround the company now I get these surveys. He's from them saying well. What if we did this? What if we just this product and I've been so annoyed at them? I always feel it out just to yell at them and I basically just tell them there's nothing you can do at this point to regain my trust. What if you get my money back starting point so so let's let's just go into? I like to talk briefly about the idea of not investing in leaving money in cash and you know for some the people they think this isn't a mistake because they feel safe in cash but also one of the things that I try to teach for instance in one of the books yes I wrote which is called how to start building your wealth investing in the stock market. I said that you have to have a really long time. Rise and you know you think I want to retire at fifty. I WANNA retire at sixty and have a decent amount of money. How significant is it that you were either in or out of the market for one year? Do you know during that period of time that you're building up your investment profile you know portfolio and if I go and carry forward the returns what I calculate is that you're much worse off not contributing even if the market is high then if you you you know just stay out of the market. I'm just curious kind of what you're thinking processes when you went into that decision and then what change in your thinking process to that was a bad decision what I was going into the decision. It's you see the charter off all author records all time high it it just feels expensive to get in and you hear so much talk about there needing to be another big recession her direction and we believe that it should be happening and probably should be happening of it. Just hasn't happened for whatever reason and people. I think we as humans we just hate overpaying for things I know I I if I had to overpay for something and I see it goes on sale by twenty five percent or fifty percent of the next month it would devastate and to see my money and he just you know the fear of loss is actually bigger than the fear of missing out so it was it was emotional decision. I'm not to invest the money and the mistakes I made there was I literally left it in cash in a pretty much zero percent interest checking account account most of us. Have you know even if I did move to a savings account it was point zero zero one percent or something so it almost didn't matter but what I should I should have done is the very least looked around options because there are savings accounts out there that pay two percent. No things like like these online banks ally Marcus and the reason why such a bad idea to leave money in cash is you're guaranteed teed to be losing two percent inflation so even if your money is technically safe and a checkings account or savings account and and you're not gaining interest. You're not losing money. You are losing you know whatever the raiders which is used around two percent now so if you if you go out to see a movie cost you ten bucks and then you put your money in guys and a year or two later you go out and you think I'm GonNa go see a movie. I think I'll take out ten bucks out of the bank bank account you go down to the movie and they say hey it's twelve bucks so that's how you lose to the second part of it is the the loss of potential gains because even if the stock market didn't grow and in that year those two years you still don't miss you on dividends Mittens and that might be one percent or even two percent so right there you know you're losing two percents on the on a facing using one or two percent on dividends that'd be that would have been paid out which would have been either reinvested into account or cashed out on and then you have the potential losses on average the stock market goes up by seventy eight percent of the year and if we sat out on that last couple of years has gone up even more so really it's by me keeping a significant amount of money and it was I think it was over seventy five thousand knows I would look at my checking account sometimes and I would feel wealthy because I I can see sometimes up two hundred thousand dollars in the account but at the same time I'm losing money. It's almost like a bucket with a slow drip and that's not only not not growing but it's it's becoming almost an eye ability. That's new money so let's let's maybe you can just kind of summarize. What have you learned from these experiences that you that you've talked about? What would you say is kind of one two three of what you've learned well for currencies itself off for the foam? Oh don't feel like you're missing out. Try to get these big. You know wild gains instead instead of my strategy. Now is slow and steady wins the race if I can grow my portfolio by seven percent of the year for the rest of my life. I'm going to be very very happy with that the for lending I'm still big Fan. I still have seventy five K. in a pedicure money and now it's secured by real estate so if the these people don't pay off his loans re re possessor house we sell it. Get our money back so I would say there's a there's always an alternative out there. We just have to you. Listen to podcasts asked people do do enough research to figure out hey you know why invest in this you know with either is your present returns when being at two percent on a on a distant different savings account that doesn't have a physical branch or why give money to to somebody at with as an unsecured loan when we can give it as a secured loan that's property back and the last part is the only market market timing that is proven to work. Is this time in the market and nobody no matter how smart we are or how much we can predict the future. Nobody can predict the market so it's better just to be in the market fantastic. I love it in fact that's great saying time in the market not timing the market so let me go over a few things I'll summarize of what I take away from it. if if I could summarize about the peer to peer lending I would say lend but get collateral collateralized doing anything that you lend to you and then the second part is the part about time in in the market which you're you're definitely right. I mean allowing money to compound is is the critical Michael Key and in order the real people are just show the chart of the exponential rise in your money in later years from allowing your money money to compound but the sad news of that chart is that it doesn't start Greeley compound until you're thirty and most people never started early enough to get to your thirty or stay in long enough to get the real compounding impact and what I would also say the other thing I I maybe I'll just talk briefly about an issue that I've had to deal with that. I've you know come up with my little solution for in. I'll give an example. I I have an online course it's called basically it's based on my book still building your wealth investing in the stock market and so I try to teach people to look at the long-term think about investing over long periods time thinking about you know putting your money in regularly on a regular basis so really if you're putting in a thousand two thousand dollars each month it doesn't really matter if the stock market super high right now because you know in six months or two years you'll be putting money in when the stock market's down also and from a long-term perspective perspective. It's better to get that gain that comes from that but there are people that just have a behavioral bias it just a an emotional bias where they just have a hard time putting money in so. I'm GonNa give you an example of what what I do. In this may be something that you can think about and for the listeners about let's just imagine that what what I usually look at his one hundred ten minus your age so let's take a thirty year old and so that means that eighty percent of their assets should be allocated to equity by my system my thinking and what I would say for equity is at a globally diversified fixed site passive. ETF or passive fun that's pretty broadly diversified. You've reduced risk with that and let's say for Simplicity Sake that the remaining twenty percent accent is in fixed income so the problem that you face when the stock market superfly you're afraid to put in that money and let's just say you're putting a thousand dollars every month and so you're GONNA.

S. history and it forced Lopez to reckon with what it meant for him and his family to be undocumented the day of the raid we noticed that there was a helicopter flying around that didn't belong in the role country sky I wasn't too worried about it but when I moved into reading class missiles and told us that there was something to do with accurate processors in immediately after that I realized that my mom was working I didn't know what to do I don't know what to think and I sure as hell didn't want to think about what was to happen next I see adults trying to console children saying it's gonna be alright it's gonna be alright but nobody knew what was gonna happen nobody knew everything's gonna be alright shattering when I said goodbye to her that morning I didn't realize it was you say goodbye for a year after which I remember that we'd stay home from school and hit in our basement because there were stories of agents coming to the house and arresting the second parent or whoever answered the door and we decided that the best thing to do is just close our home and and not not now I think in there was no access to my mom at all for awhile and I knew that I didn't want to see her in in jail my father had to quit his job at the slaughterhouse so we went from having a steady life to one that we wouldn't know what was gonna happen the next hour I remember having to go and ask one of our neighbors if we could have water from their house because we don't have enough money to pay the water bill for me well I will our little slice of home but then I realized is it my home where is home all through this my father told us that things were gonna be alright that we're gonna work through it research apply for visas and we got word that my mom was granted one and that she was gonna be coming home during that time in millions more now I I'm always skeptical about anything but I remember that I was in bed and I could hear that you know people are coming in from the front door heard my father just break down a little bit and the muffled cries from him as he hugged my mom and I came out of my room going into the kitchen that's when I saw her and I was like my mom sat up so in our lives.

The Illinois farmers who grow it, and the food related events, destinations, and lifestyles that make our state great. Welcome to our FD town, country partners on a Tuesday under loss, Yonki, where in Tremont taking the show on the road. And I was thinking, okay. We're gonna go on the road a few times going to be an Alito on Thursday. Where do we go? So I know this is gonna work really, really well thought. Well, let's call them. Shale Gerry injury minds, who is been one of the coordinators Tremont Turkey fest for several years fifty fourth annual coming up this weekend. That's retreatment is not for you. That's, that's for that's retrea months. But I haven't been here all four years. Always in early June, right? The weekend before Father's Day weekend, when we hold the festival, and some people, I mean, some people may know Tremont as the Turks, that's the high school as the Turk and your Evan surkey day, Turkey fast. I mean there is I mean you're not just making that up. But that also talks a little bit about Illinois agriculture and turkeys in and around three months. That's correct there, there is several Turkey farms around here over the years and probably still is, but certainly was the Turkey capital or the number one tricky spot in, in Illinois. Yeah. So what's, what has this been? But one of the things I would ask that, okay for silver turkeys, but we're not doing it thanksgiving. So there's probably reason to do it in June as well. The festival was started. Really what I've heard is from a local, the local jaycees organization was for community pool, eighteen sixty eight so maybe that's the talian June. But nineteen sixty eight to raise money for community pool. Turkeys are probably more expensive in November than they are now anyway. So I'm sure good price point. Yeah. So even from the beginning, it was about community involvement and community building community improvements. Correct. The when the JC started it. I don't even think the jaycees exists in Tremont anymore. But the festival does. And it has continued, you know, every sense for fifty four years. Well, how then I mean, the, the amount that you have contributed just each year. The. Mount you contribute into the community is remarkable. Yeah. This is a huge fundraiser for tree, it started with the pool. But once the pool was built it has gone onto fund a lot of things in three mind. You know, boy, boy, scout troops. Cub scout troops the library, the food pantry Tremont in touch, which is our after prom for our high schoolers. The museum and historical society robots years. We have great robot. Here's team that come out of Tremont high school. Years years. Okay. Building a robot. Did you think they competed nationally doing? We're talking about stem at that point, you know, maybe even future careers or future ways to study for, for local Turks. Absolutely. Absolutely. How does that work? Then. Do people in advance? I mean, is it a grand process? Howdy. Is every year after the festival, we pay all our bills, when then we figure out how much we've earned and then in March, we accept grant proposals and get together at the end of March. And, you know, the last couple years, we've basically awarded everything that we were asked for, and we also put aside money from year to year after we went through a huge pool shutdown. Oh, a we are got old. And we had. Pull from sixty at gateway. And we actually set it down. Oh, five and three years later, we opened back up after we had done a bunch of fundraising, and then every year after that the festival, put aside X number of dollars to make sure the next time we had a little bump in the road with our pool, which just happened.

And so, this, this can be a difficult thing to do to reframe insert statement that you have earned update statement as a series of statements. But in practice, I don't think I found an update statement that, that couldn't be rewritten. Visit select really the benefit here is that with select statements, you're, you're building data models of date statements are, you know, untie mutations where the select is a you produce thing at the end in.

But just in the middle of the run you get an entity that if there's a bug you can inspect you can select from which you can't do if you just run a dozen updates in inserts deletes in order, so truly, I think, you know, in our introduction. We have the DVD documentation, it says in big letters, everything is a select. And I think that's one of the core benefits, DVD, is that it forces you to think about how to define your transformations as, as pure transformations via selecting data, just overall being able to make sequel, code reusable and compose -able is difficult, and sometimes impossible, and I know that you've added in these capabilities of Jinja, template ING, which helps to alleviate some of those issues. But I'm wondering what you have found. Found to be some of the remaining issues and dental shortcomings of using Jinja for composing these various different sequel, fragments and snippets and how it compares to other approaches that might use a higher level language that actually compiles down to the sequel, that is closer to as of touring complete environment, sir. So there's a good post that I read the other day is called a we can do better than sequel by think folks from FD, basically, they numerate of challenges DVD in one of them is non orthogonal -ality.

He taught at Harvard Business School, and then he consulted for Harris the casino in Vegas that was in the late nineties. He knew nothing about gambling. But he understood customer loyalty. And that got him promoted to see you. The Las Vegas strip is actually a quite a powerful in almost pure example of the type of product competition extreme in the sensitive person who wishes to play a slot machine or bed at a card table can do so in and out of any of the casinos on the Las Vegas strip without paying any sort of injury. They don't have to stay took a company that was trading at fourteen dollars a share. He sold in a decade later to private equity for ninety dollars share spoke with the F Suji indep earlier this year about how gamblers are unique kind of consumer and how data science is helping CEO's in many industries make better decisions. So the promise of economics is the notion that you can take given level of resources in do more with it for the betterment of more people. I was the son of a factory worker who lived in a neighborhood full of other factory workers as a child, and it seemed to me that there must be a way to get more out of what was available there, then we all experienced so the disciplinary economics, which I was introduced to in college and then studied on applied basis at the third. Reserve seemed like a very powerful tool for the advancement of that idea, and that's proven to in fact, be the case in the work that I've had since. And so for bam. IT you go across the Charles river Harvard Business School there. You're a well regarded professor of marketing at the most prestigious management school in the world. How did you like being an academic while I liked being that sort of an academic? So in this instance, when you're teaching at Harvard Business School, your students are people who want to be business people. They don't want to be academics. Whereas if you're teaching it MIT where I was a student all of the students want to be like the professor at the Harvard Business School. They have they make no bones about wanting to be like, the professor they wanna be like other business leaders that they see in the world, and it gives your work. Very pragmatic focus, which I enjoyed a great deal. It's the mid ninety nine hundred ninety s by now and you call right this influential paper.

The FD this far right party has done well elections while claiming the Germany's identity is under threat from refugees and migrants. Now the FDA is setting up a wing of Jewish members. In theory, Israel is aligned against the same Arabs and Muslims. The AFDC dislikes. The head-spinning part is that people on the far right have also targeted Jews Espy Nicholson reports from Berlin, less this. Okay. This incident was caught on camera and shows German man, shouting abuse at the owner of fine, begs a well-known Jewish restaurant in the Berlin, borough of Charlottenburg. Come on. I. Plitin costs come on the man rants. What do you want hit? You belong in the gas chambers. Nobody wants you here with your stupid Jewish restaurants. Mike del Boga restaurant, regular and friend of the owner says, anti Jewish sentiment is more brazen since the AFDC strong showing in last election. So the very idea that fellow Jewish citizens would vote for the party is baffling. A lot of members of the party are antisemitic are races and saying, unbelievable things about minorities about Jewish people about Muslim people. How can a Jewish group form itself with an apartment like that? Delbra is vice president of the German Jewish students union which is organizing a protest against the group Jews in the af d, their inauguration on Sunday. He wants that the f. d. is trying to exploited his Jewish members, the dries to come over very pro Jewish, very pro e. it's not because they're like the Jews. It's not because they like Israel very much because they hate the enemies of Israel so much that they think that have strong partner with in the Jewish community to fight those people. But we don't let exploit. Ourselves from this tactics we'll can fool is also Jewish, but he's a founding member of the group Jews in the af deep.

We're roughly one hundred and forty thousand Jews in this country. It would only take a week for us all to leave, and we'd be leaving not because of the f. d. or the right wing extremists. But because of Islam, ick anti-semitism. Many Ammon reporters for the news magazine dash is an authority on the AFC. She says, she sees a lot of parallels between the anti semitism of the Nazi era and the AFDC anti Islam sentiment today for a lot of de leaders, you hear derogatory, aggressive, general accumulations towards the Muslims that can be comparable to the way the Nazis treated. The Jews, for example, see them as enemies of the German. People. They also use language comparing Muslims to animals. Like for example, Acura. Back at find bugs restaurant. Mike del book warns that Jews should be suspicious. The AFDC stunts on alleged Islamic antisemitism. Maybe they're standing by our side right now. But when they, let's say, solve the first problem, we are the next and we just have to look back in our history to understand what we are doing when we are supporting a party like that for NPR news, I'm as Mickelson in Berlin.
