The Civilian Climate Corps Is a Big-Government Plan
"Nearly one hundred years since the creation of the civilian conservation corps. Much of its legacy is still being put to use of everything needed here. This tunnels the most impressive piece of work tom. Ford would is assistant manager of lewis and clark caverns state park in west central montana. Thirty feet long lasting from the outside in the tunnel is big. You could walk down at comfortable until the passage opens into a massive dark cave where the air is heavy with a chilly humidity. This came forward. Says was discovered by a member of the conservation corps who decided to do a little non-sanctioned exploring like i said slid through all that and came out into just this hits the lights so it's by far the largest room we know of in the cave system it has the biggest formations hole cave that we know of as well ribbed columns of rock stretch from ceiling to floor looking like glistening coral reefs perfect. Somebody's formations are still a million years old at they're going in every year. Seventy to eighty thousand people get to enjoy them. That's not to mention the millions more who used trails campgrounds and bridges the dams and other work. That was done by the civilian conservation corps. That's one of the things. I hear the most bizarre. They talk about the history. All they lament the loss of that type of an organization the here in washington it makes sense. President biden is so drawn to the idea of re-booting one of the most popular enduring programs from the new deal biden has draped himself in fdr symbolism and like roosevelt. He's made big government spending and programs a key part of his agenda once in a generation investment in america yourself. This is the largest jobs plan since world war. Two in fact biden has positioned himself as the first president in generations to like fdr unapologetically pitched the federal government and government spending as the solution to big problems. These are investments. We made together as one country investments that the government was in a position to make time and again propel us into the

"fdr" Discussed on The Argument
"I'm talking to to progressive about by these first one hundred days one. Who's impressed right by them. So far and has high hopes and one who s a president's first one hundred days considered a major milestone. it's wintertime that matters a first impression. It's also a chance to get stuff done before. The honeymoon has worn off. Fdr rolled out transformative legislation. That became part of his new deal. Lbj launched a war on poverty biden gotta nearly two trillion relief. Bill passed on day fifty. But the jury's out on whether he's done enough whether he's done the right thing and whether what he's done in a sign of what's to come. My guess disagree with each other on all of the above cedar one Writer for the new republic. An almond gear dr dos rights to inc's newsletter and is the author of winner-take-all. Thank you so much for joining me today. Thank you so much for having me. Thanks for having me. Both of you. Wrote pieces analyzing biden's first one hundred days. Both pieces have very different. Takes and i think the headlines say a lot yours was joe. Biden isn't close to being historic president. And that's in the new republic and you quote welcome to the new progressive era and the atlantic. So on and i'll start with you. What do you lay out in the piece. I would say i agree with both of those headlines very much agree with sita's also and so here's how i would square it. I didn't say. Welcome to the progressive administration. I didn't say welcome to the progressive transformational president as a welcomed the new progressive era. What i fundamentally think has happened. Is that over a period of years. A bunch of the chronic issues in this country around wealth and income inequality around the death of the american dream for growing numbers of people the failure to solve our biggest shared problems the crashing and burning of the neoliberal order and the belief in it has rung a death knell for the intellectual consensus political consensus of the last forty years. The reagan consensus and joe biden irony of ironies someone who has a centrist democrat someone who embodied in his career that consensus as a democrat happened to win in a moment in which those ideas were falling out of favor. And so i think there's this funny and strange coming together of a man movement and a moment a man who doesn't quite fit that movement and a moment that has perhaps given him no choice but to accommodate himself to at. And i think the one thing you can give him tremendous credit for is unlike a lot of us who struggled to change our mind when we're wrong or when we're left behind by history. He has adapted himself to this. And i think made peace with it and has begun to operate outside that market fundamentalists consensus begun to make a muscular case for the usefulness of government in a lot of prior democrats have just been too scared to do and i think we also see now build back better stuff you know focus on systemic racism in the infrastructure thing. Not just let's build a bunch of roads that are kind of lens for systemic racism lens on climate in this infrastructure stuff and talked to some of the more radical climate activists out there. They don't think he's where they are. They think he's more persuadable more respectful of their views. More amenable to going where they wanna go than anyone they've ever dealt with. I think bernie sanders. You talked before on bernie sanders. I don't think bernie in his late seventies ever felt as listened to by any administration in his lifetime as he felt by this one. It's certainly not everything and it's definitely not enough. I wouldn't even say it's a lot but it is something now. Are you willing to give biden as much credit. In this moment you know. I think that biden certainly has accomplishments. You can stick his name on that. He should be proud of as president already. I think the rescue plan a serious piece of legislation. That really did in ways the non said break away from some of the priors. Some of the old habits of mind about how government should intervene the economy. When you had our generous cash payments you had really pathbreaking expansion of the child tax credits. You expanding obamacare subsidies and there was a lot of good stuff in that package. We have now. another package. put forward with pre k. and universal community college and pay leave. And you know he's putting forward. I think legislation that is important that is meaningful that is gonna change lives when i wrote that piece and there was a response to sink pieces all over the place. Not gonna single anybody out. Where all these comparisons were being made to franklin roosevelt and the new deal and the transformation of the economy that we saw response to the great depression and it just struck me. It's less than one hundred days and we had not seen evidence that joe biden was franklin roosevelt. That didn't really seem to be a rational understanding of what had gone through congress the situation in the senate it did not seem to be more to any particular reality right but biden was being praised for opposing infrastructure. Bill is not passed yet and we don't know final form. it's going to take just. It's not a realistic comparison. And so i tried to work through in that piece. Why it was that people felt compelled to sort of draw historical illusion. I think we can recognize certain shifts but this country is facing a lot of deep seated challenges challenges that are gonna come to the fore once the coronavirus pandemic sort of abates. And it's still not really very clear to me. How deeply joe biden understands them and how deeply he's gonna be able to address them given the constraints that he's facing in washington. I think that there are reasons for if not pessimism. Then a kind of restraints in praise as meaningful as the expansion of the welfare state are. We're already seeing places where the administration is dialing back in the american families plan things like the child tax credit which really was a pathbreaking provisions within rescue plan by administration said that it hoped to make that tax relief permanence. It's not being a permanent is being extended until twenty twenty five so the most pathbreaking part of the rescue plan doesn't seem like it's going to last night just think that people should have an understanding of where we actually are. That isn't rooted in the kind of emotional. Need to think that yards. Come to save us. I don't think that's actually where we're at part of this is that we don't have an example of what a progressive activists president really looks like that successful people look back to lbj but obviously lbj's presidency ended with the other failings of the vietnam war. But i wanted to ask you. You spoke to a lot of progressive activists who seemed willing to give biden the credit here. What were they saying. About what dealing with this administration was like there were several things that struck me and one theme was consultation. I spoke to congresswoman ilhan omar. Who felt that. There was a reciptivity to some of the ideas. She in the congressional progressive causes out during the transition period that they saw reflected in the rescue that surprised her as richard. Trumka head of the afl cio. Who's very strikingly. I'll tell you the difference between this administration and past administrations in a passive ministrations. Used to call you to tell you what the policy is. This one calls you to consult what it should be in. There was also i think a feeling that for good or ill. The joe biden interested different kind of leader. Who's less of a singular figure who frankly has not read the way you think of a bill. Clinton obama having read fifty books for every decision that they made he. That's not him. He's a fundamentally coalition l- politician of what that means in practice has a lot of people said to me is. He's very happy policy. Be the some of.
Breaking Down U.S. Spending During The Pandemic
"The trillions of dollars that the biden administration wants to pump into the economy signal. The return of big government. I put this question to zachary carter. Who wrote a book called the price of peace. It's about the economist. John maynard keynes and the ideas that underpin our current understanding of what government's responsibility is in a time of crisis. Carter told me it's not really about big government versus small government anymore. It's about how the money is spent. There's always been at least over the last seventy five years if fairly large government but since the nineteen nineties there has been a different consensus about how we should organized that government with democrats moving closer to sort of the reagan conservative republican understanding about how how the state should be organized. And i think president. Biden's been pretty clear about wanting to turn away from that. He's hanging portrait. Fdr in the oval office. That's something new. So i think the size of the government is sort of a rhetorical issue. The real shift here is where the focus of that. Government is is directed.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066
"The day was february nineteenth. Nineteen forty two after the japanese bombed pearl harbor a couple of months earlier. The citizens and government of the united states became frantic. They were increasingly distrustful of the mini japanese immigrants in citizens in the country believing they couldn't be trusted to remain loyal to the us over japan. In many people's minds people of japanese descent were threat to national safety and security as a result president. Franklin delano roosevelt signed executive order. Ninety sixty six. Arthur is the secretary of war military commanders to set up military zones that anybody to be evacuated from the executive order was framed as a measure necessary to protect national security during wartime since the country was now vulnerable to attack. But what the order actually did was take advantage of the public's escalating fears of japanese americans involvement in the war and use it to put them in concentration camps. The passing of executive order ninety sixty six was largely precipitated by the bombing of pearl harbor but resentment of foreign nationals japanese immigrants in particular had already been growing steadily by the time. Fdr signed executive order before the nineteenth century. Japan didn't want much to do with europe or its colonies but by the eighteen hundreds japan had begun trading with the united states and japanese. People were immigrating to the us and other places as temporary laborers at the same time. The us was barring other asian nationals from entering the country the chinese exclusion act passed in eighteen eighty two banned immigration from china to the us and prohibited chinese people in the us from becoming citizens the law partly had to do with the high unemployment and low wages in the us which were blamed on chinese laborers but it also had to do with prejudices white americans had against chinese people. All of this is to say that there was a precedent for immigration from asia. By the time the us government began placing limits on the number of japanese people that could come to the us and in nineteen twenty four. The government passed the johnson. Reed act which set immigration quotas and effectively cut off the stream of japanese people immigrating to the states. People who moved to the us from japan could it become citizens although children born to japanese people in the us received birthright citizenship. Even so most of the japanese people who moved to the us settled on the west coast or in hawaii building up their own communities with their own schools and businesses and a lot of these communities. Were doing well. But when the japanese bombed pearl harbor in nineteen forty one in the hopes of destroying us military forces in the pacific. The us was compelled to enter world war two after years of try to avoid being hands on in the conflict. At first there were appeals for people to remain calm but soon enough the government began targeting thousands of foreign nationals who it believed to be a threat. Many of the people who the government considered enemy aliens had done. Nothing that would legitimately earned him the label of enemy regardless they were still sent to camps jails and prisons under suspicions of espionage sabotage and any other activities that could aid to pay in the war and as more people were locked up as the media amplified false reports of japanese threats and as actual japanese military threats posed. The public grew more fearful of japanese people

"This month marks the 20th anniversary of a wheelchair being added to a presidential memorial in D. C. It's being celebrated by disability advocates as a victory for inclusion. Getting a statue of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in his wheelchair. Added to the already built memorial was a fight. But 16 of his grandchildren and 50 disability organizations were onboard. Having that image is important for representation to remind people of what is possible. Mary Dolan of the FDR Memorial Legacy Committee. It's also just accurate. That's how he lived his life. Why would we hide that? Dolan says The committee now is appealing to the National Park Service to address flooding and upkeep and improve the memorial experience for the visually impaired.

Biden signs executive orders addressing the economy
"Biden has turned to executive orders in his first days of office says he looks to address the economic crisis brought on by the pandemic. He's also pursuing a massive coronavirus aid bill Can Walsh White House and political analyst for U. S. News and World Report joined w. T. O. P S John Aaron to break down Biden's first few days in office and some of the past presidents he resembles well particular FDR going back a long way to 1933 when he first became president. He had a huge depression to deal with the worst economic calamity we've ever had, and his philosophy was similar to what Biden seems to be doing action action action. The country wanted the president to do something to act boldly. And you seeing that with President Biden again today with executive orders. They're going to continue indefinitely pushing this $1.9 trillion stimulus bill moving to try many different things to get the economy corrected, but mostly to get the coronavirus under control and to get the vaccines out. That's his first priority right now. And probably should be given how difficult that issue is for people to deal with very quickly on Lyndon Johnson. Of course, he took over after President Kennedy was assassinated. He also wanted to show action himself, particularly in areas of diversity and racial justice with writing is also doing so. I would say those two presidents come to mind and you see a lot of echoes in what Biden is doing when you compare them to Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. The president, of course pitches himself is a compromise or experienced in the Senate. But we're hearing that some Republicans say there's no way they're gonna go for some of the elements and at one point trillion $1.9 trillion.8 bills. So where does this go? I think the thing we have to remember here, of course, is that this is vital opening bid in his attempt to get a lot of this legislation through. He's been around a long time. 36 years in the Senate years as vice president, he is known as a guy who knows how the Congress works. And so I think we have to realize that this is his the start of the neck. Negotiations started the deal making there are not good signs from the Republicans that they'll go along with him. There's a lot of pushback of the same time he's getting the sense from the left on his in his party to push further in government activism, and so on, So it is a difficult line. He's walking here, but I think That there's the potential particularly initially here that he will come to some kind of a compromise. It'll be difficult, but what he's got out there now is sort of the whistle ist. I think when he gets to the real bargaining, I think he's gonna have to borrow back off from a lot of that. But I think it's possible

"The entire crisis of the depression years. The one line also that really stuck out show. Fdr's view of the world view of capitalism and democracy. The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much is whether we provide enough for those who have too little one of those fdr lines. That is so encapsulates what the new deal was about but one. That's not often cited by historians. I want to call your attention to the campaign address in cleveland. Ohio in nineteen forty. A speech said nobody pays attention to. I'd like us to connect that speech to how he speaks. Then in one thousand nine hundred thirty seven because in thirty seven what he's talking about is the fact in one thousand nine thirty seven as you said is one third of a nation.

Senate to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nominee a week ahead of Election Day
"Later today if you Senate majority leader Mitch, McConnell's predictions proved accurate the US Senate will vote to confirm amy coming Barrett to the US Supreme Court Bar will be the judge that the Republican Party has been able to put on the bench during President Donald Trump's term, and while she may not be the controversial of these herself her. Confirmation is the Republicans have breezily disregarded the convention which they invoked for years go to keep a barrack Obama nominee from even having confirmation hearings on joined with more on this by Christian mcnichols news editor and Claude Harrington associate professor of American politics at Montfort University. Claude first of all is this now actually a done deal is they the remotest chance at all Barrett doesn't get put on the bench? I think it's. All bots jail she seems to be there I. IT's. It's quite staggering to see how fast. The process can move when people actually wanted to unlike 'em time round as you mentioned just a moment ago. So yeah, I would say unnecess- some unanticipated and catastrophe she's had. Chris, the Republicans hypocrisy here is mildly staggering MRIs, of course, the same Republican Party that four years ago clutched polls and affected vipers at the very idea of even holding confirmation hearings for Merrick. Garland who Barack Obama wished to put on the court in the last year of his presidency they going to do this about a week out from a presidential election. But this isn't what justifies the trump thing in the as far as the Republican establishment is concerned absolutely I mean I think the issue is if you look at this from a purely political perspective taking out the the hypocrisy argument if you will Mitch McConnell and the Republicans in the Senate have achieved. What they wanted to achieve and they have, they have given people who voted for Donald Trump essentially what they wanted I think you can divide those who voted for Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen obviously into many different camps. But there were there were those who voted for trump himself. But then there were many who simply voted for a Republican with this in mind with the idea in minded, they would be able. Influence. The Supreme Court for decades to come remember as you said at the beginning Obama was denied I'm nominee that meant that there was a vacant spot open right when Donald trump was elected president, which was then filled and that in itself would have been a dramatic swing in the other direction. So we shouldn't forget that it was a very conservative Justice Antonin Scalia who had passed away or shortly before the two thousand sixteen. Election. So we have seen a dramatic shift in the court compared to what would have happened if Hillary Clinton had been elected president and so in that sense. Yes. From a purely political perspective, the Senate Mitch McConnell who is a traditional Republican was You could argue very much power political individual who was willing to stomach donald trump and some of his politics because he knew that this is what he would be able to achieve. At once amy conybeare. At ease confirmed, that will give the Supreme Court, a six three conservative majority. Now, that's not absolutely set in stone Supreme Court justices have been known to have minds of their own from time to time, but is it possible from distance to assess what difference that could make to American politics for as Chris quite rightly points out potentially decades ahead of us. Yes I think that that's absolutely not an overstatement to to to to say how significant this is. You know what they did. There would be an ideological. Conservative majority from this point on and. There's a couple of things I suppose one is. What it might mean in terms of what's coming before the court you know in the short to medium term I mean there are. Big issues coming down the road to do you know things on climate change on immigration and other major. Political stumbling blocks the one that's coming soon as I really am the one that's going to get the most attention for the moment is a vote on the for care act and that is coming before the courtroom, November and it's about rather than the the. Statute in its entirety is to be deemed unconstitutional or can can parts of it be on picked now? Komi Bats. Take on. This is going to be enormously important because if there is a possibility that's M obamacare in its entirety could be undermined and that's that's a fairly enormous moment. I think for the country not least when it's in the the grip ave, a public health crisis. Chris at the top of the show, we did play a quote by senator. McConnell which struck me as slightly all I don't know whether he misspoke or just found himself saying the quiet out loud. But he said a lot of what we've done over the last four years. We'll be undone sooner or later by the next election is that Mitch McConnell assuming or perhaps even hoping that trump gets beaten next Tuesday It wasn't interesting remark wasn't it? It's it's hard to say I think there might be a little bit of that in in his remarks you can read into it I do think more importantly though his comment related to what I was saying earlier I would argue that he is making this case almost a gloating case to say you can undo whenever you win whether it is in November as the polls suggest. Currently or not you can. You can undo much of what we did in the four years in electoral terms in legislative terms I should say, but you cannot undo what we've done on the court that will remain that will remain something that stays for a long period of time. The one thing I just wanted to say on that as well. I think it will be interesting with this conservative majority To really see how aggressively they go after that to to Mitch McConnell's point if you will things like the affordable care act they were passed by Congress if there is a Democratic president with Joe Joe Biden becoming president, they will have an opportunity to pass laws to to to change laws as well. Of course. So the question really will be to what extent this cord goes after laws declaring things. Versus giving Congress an opportunity to sort of legislate when it comes to things like healthcare as well. There were some interesting remarks I just add for Amy Coney Barrett on this in the past, he's talked about the idea of precedent the idea of who legislates when when you overturn precedent and she did have a little bit of a line to say she will own the overturn precedence. If there is still controversy in a certain issue. So if it is something that is divisive and it has not been decided if there is an overwhelming public support for something, she also believes that it's not the courts job to overturn it, and so that I think will be a key thing to watch going forward if we have say a democratic President Democratic majority but a conservative court. Claude if next Tuesday is a big win for the democratic. Party. As Senator Mitch McConnell appears to think it's going to be the not completely without options are there is the possibility as has been floated off expanding the Supreme Court but do you think a democratic administration would be willing to spend political capital doing that? Yes. It's interesting to see how the the the kind of the tightrope that Biden has been walking in his language on this topic and you know any mention of packing the court does. Bays alarm bells, I think in causes some concern people start talking about FDR on his efforts back in the day. I would say, maybe there might be an possibly needs to be a conversation about reforming court gets in its current. Is. Having become such a punishment killed body and it's certainly not what the framers set out to be, and the does probably you know some serious conversations that need to be had I suppose as one other point as well. Maybe just more. And immediately, is that the last male liberal on the court Stephen Prayer is the HVAC too. So. I. Mean He seems in relatively good shape put. It's quite likely that whoever is President the next four years, we'll have the opportunity to put. A new justice on the court. So that's just something to think about in terms of the balance clothes. Harrington Christian. Thank you both for joining
Transforming Your Marketing Plays With Jackie Lipnicki
"Joined by Jackie Lipnicki an account executive at New Relic and she's got some very interesting strategies to share with us Jacky. Thank you for joining the show. Thank you for having me happy to be yeah, we're excited to have you and before we get going if you can just tell us a little bit about yourself off then in about New Relic sure. So I started out as an SDR. I moved my way up through the chain eventually was an Str manager for a while and now I've been an account executive officer of the last year and half or so, I'm currently at New Relic and for those of you who don't know what New Relic is ultimately we are working with IP professionals basically make sure that they have digital experiences that work for their customers. So when you and I are engaging with software we want to work world and so we help them to do that. Awesome. Awesome job. Um, okay, so so let's get into it. And when we we talked about doing a podcast one of the things you mentioned that was super interesting to me and I think will be interesting to the audience age is you at a previous company you guys in deployed a like a quiz to call strategy and I'd love for you to just share how that wage. And what the results were there. Yeah. So my first job ever worked for was for in the techspace was a Content marketing company and they both interactive content and one of those things where you know quizzes assessments and for us as a sales team, we would basically leverage those quizzes and send those out to our prospects and they would fill out a series of questions and they were often times fun and lighthearted and you know kind of like a buzzfeed style of if you were whatever industry you're selling to if you were this kind of dog You know, whatever. What would you be if you did this, what would you look like? And then we throw in some hard-hitting questions that were more in line with what we needed as far as what's your maturity level in this space So at the end of the fact is we would get all the results back and it would give us as FDR's and his account Executives the ability to go and then target the people that we could see were answering questions that clearly have pains in the line to what we could solve for them. And so an example might be that if you're a demand gen marketer working for the IG security space, you might ask some questions like, you know, if you were a security system, which would you be if you were trying to figure out where your weaknesses are what would you say your biggest weakness is if you were this or that and so those questions were kind of Surfing some great answers for us and help us with our targeted messaging. Yeah. So as a sales rep if they you know, if I'm I'm thinking about this if I'm a prospect I get a quiz. Yeah might feel wage. Up out more likely than respond to a cold email to say Hey, you know like we've got this great solution for you, you know, not that I've never responded to a cold email. But but it just I mean we all know like he rarely respond to those things, but the quiz I would probably fill out if I thought it was pertinent to me now on the sgr side of things I could see the huge benefit being you've got some relevant information and the timing was right there cuz I feel like timing is almost everything in sales rep. I think it's really great from a timing perspective. But it also does a really good job, especially if the quiz is done right of having strong brand awareness because now that person who's been through a quiz has already seen your logo. They've already gotten familiar with you. They've already decided that there's some level of trust and credibility and their treats and so when they get this phone call and it's from Jackie, let me get New Relic and they just have a quiz with New Relic yesterday. And I know the things that they're struggling with it's much more exciting and impactful for that Prospect to say, yeah, I'll give you a shot. I'll hear you out. I'm interested. Obviously. That's why I took the quiz in the first place. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that's awesome. Okay. Well, I I love that idea. I think it's an awesome strategy people can can try it. I think I might try to get our marketing team to do it will have to figure out a good quiz. So when you guys were making these quizzes was it you mentioned it was like a mix of like fun questions and then the questions with the information that you guys needed. Where did you strike the balance? They're dead. It really depends on the tone of your company and what you're trying to accomplish. So, you know, there are quizzes Which are typically like under five questions are usually pretty light and are more. Of funnel just generating that awareness do assessments which are a little bit more mid funnel which is when you're really just kind of going and you're asking 25 questions and trying to get a little bit more serious one quiz, we did at my last company. We were we basically helped small medium businesses with their blogging strategy. And so we made a quiz that was how much for blogging strategy would you say that you're you know, a seed a little plant or a full grown tree. Would you say that your blogging strategy is mostly you know, sending an email once a week once a month or once a year. And so some of the questions for us just gave us insight into what they were currently doing. But for them it was also fun to be like, oh what am I am? I am mature. Am I this and I thought so long Jim's were a little more well-rounded to be engaging and user-friendly.
A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event
"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle. And working out. Would owners can order iphone twelve and iphone twelve pro this Friday the sixteenth. October. They'll be delivered the following Friday the twenty third. If you're targeting either end of the range. iphone twelve, many an iphone twelve pro Max will go up for order on the sixth of November. Delivery should hit the following Friday the thirteenth of November. Barring incident which I have to say because. Friday

Since we currently have a president who doesn't seem to know or even understand the importance of words especially when they're spoken by the president of the United States. We thought it might be helpful in a time of national crisis to remember that we have had presidents of both parties. Who did understand this? These presidents have led our country through difficult times with power and eloquence of their words. So this week we wanted to highlight President Franklin D Roosevelt, who in nineteen, thirty six during the Great Depression and as the clouds of war gathered over, Europe delivered one of the most important political speeches ever given by a sitting president. The. Occasion was the Democratic National Convention held that year in Philadelphia. For years earlier in nineteen, thirty to FDR had made history by flying to Chicago and becoming the first presidential candidate to accept his party's nomination in person. In an earlier episode of words matter, we discussed this important speech with professor. Harvey Kaye who has just published a new book entitled FDR on Democracy. In his nineteen thirty six acceptance speech Roosevelt used the language of the founders and decried economic royalists who were trying to fight back against the progress of the new deal because it threatened their power.

"Well I guess I would have to go for an effort to reverse a trend that has been taking place in this country since the nineteen seventies which is to To discredit the authority of government and to argue that the private market can solve most problems. I think we need to rebuild confidence in government because I think of a crisis at the scale of what we're dealing with today both medical and economic with wires the national government and then other problems we face like climate change require national action if not international action so my choice would be that we go for the big one and really try to get people to recognize that the private market does not solve all problems. Can we experiment? Do we have the kind of government? Today that can experiment. The way that they did in the in the earliest years of the new deal will one thing that would have to happen. If we got a president who was of the mindset to experiment he. It looks like it's going to be A. He would have to have a congress that supported him. Roosevelt had that until the late nineteen thirties where he met more obstacles when. Republicans did better and thirty eight after that Roosevelt recession. So go president alone. Can't do everything they that president a supportive. Congress and Roosevelt got what he wanted. And so it really does take the Congress and the executive branch working together to To really re-instill that confidence and of course have to remind ourselves that it was the Second World War that fully pulled the United States out of that deep recession of the Great Depression. Jack we've got about a minute left last night goes to you today. Well an FDR goal. I think that is still a newly and even profoundly. Relevant is what he said to a Francis Perkins is Secretary Labor. He said we are going to make a country in which no one is left out. Well THAT IS A. That's a noble sentiment and I think it's something that That everybody feels needs to happen to speak to what coal were saying. How many people have felt left out? Many trump trump voters felt left out of the national feast the Urban Feast. How many minorities a left out? That's a big job and it's a it's a worthy goal for any president and that insecurity security is after I said against the hazards and vicissitudes of life. Boy We know about those.
