Letting Go Of Control & Checking Reality with Josh Han
"We're off to a good start Josh I appreciate this. To thanks for having me on. Yeah, being here. How are you living in this? Very, very hot day in this very, very hot lays during this global pandemic. Man. I'm I'm doing all right I'm doing all right for the most part. How's it over there for you? It's Not that hot over here girl I'm in the valley. Sorry I call everyone girl. Five in the valley and you're on the west side like it's probably eight to twelve degrees hotter here Roy right. Great it's always always. Yeah I'm doing I'm doing all right I mean I'm still seeing. My therapist, which is great. Yeah I. Got a good Quarantine Group of friends. And Bought some new workout stuff? I'm dislike you know. Trying to. Keep it real basic good. Ball right. Simple. Right. Who is it? Well, you have roommates you live with Andrew Yeah our friend. Andrew. And then what do you mean by quarantine friends? Is that people that you're like meeting up with two social distance walk or like? That what that involves yeah. These are the people that I see on a regular basis and. We keep it. Safe What am I a homeys Jarman I go over to his place a lot. 'cause one they don't have a car and then. Yeah I've just been there ever since quarantine started th I would like frequent their place. A lot and unlike merely just the only person that comes over there. So. Yeah I got tested once and I have another testing kit here that I'm going to do. Tomorrow. Because I, mail it out. So it's like put in A. Yeah, I have not heard of these. Well, I've heard that they exist I. Don't know anybody personally until this moment of anyone that's been using those like Mayland huskies. Revelation Andrew Andrew's one I. got this from my friend. A can send you the link Mingy, but it's free. It's from labcorp basically. Okay and it's they partnered with this company called Pixel and yet they they send you this kit you do a nose swab, and then you put the specimen in a bag and then you sent to Fedex and everything is already taken care of. Yeah, it's just it's a very. What time to be alive I mean this is the ongoing thing. We're at one four. I've been doing weekly podcast sometimes twice a week. So it get to me I'm just like. To what extent does that that saying I'm already sick of it. I've been sick of like week three but you know it's it's just a knowledge the accumulation of what's going on like you and I had a check in before we even started recording like are you okay to record and that's like a new development at least in my world that I noticed people like very graciously doing because we're all on different. Energy sources like our levels are fuel tanks are all. Are All very sensitive right now and so I really appreciated that because there was there was one moment is like consent and permission and just self self awareness right and checking in were like somebody that I had a a meeting like a phone call with asked me that and legit thought about saying you know what? Like maybe it'd be better to talk a different day and. I had never asked. You know you just go just Gogo as a really appreciated that philosophically like the asked me that I checked in and I ended up saying you know what I think if we just keep it pretty of UK for maybe like a half hour instead of like doing a full hour conversation. So stuff like that is is changing on my end. Now know about what's going on in your in your world of like how people are gauging those things warmer. I think we are being a little bit more sensitive to each other, which is great I haven't done like my podcasts in a long time, but I have had a couple. You know just phone calls with friends while I'm doing like these walks and stuff and. A lot of it is. Hey Dude checking in opening up about like any feelings or. Anything like that because again, this is a really weird time.
How Gene Therapy Helped Conner Run
"Mattie. SAFAI NPR science correspondent. John Hamilton Hi John Hi Mary so John, where would you like to begin I? Think we should start with the scientist. Okay. Let's do it. Okay. So obviously many many scientists have worked to understand this disorder. But today we're gonNA focus on Jude Samal ski back in Nineteen eighty-four and I'll ski was still a graduate student at the University of Florida and he was part of this team that cloned a virus called A V. and those are group of viruses that can infect people but they don't cause diseases. Yeah. I remember I learning about this in Grad School John that discovery was a big deal because basically we can turn these viruses in tools and and that's because viruses on their own are pros at getting into ourselves and getting up close and personal with our DNA, which is exactly where you need to get to treat a lot of genetic disorders at. Their source exactly, and he was one of the scientists who figure that out. So as you these viruses have just revolutionized gene therapy right and after some Oh ski and his team Clone Davie, they wanted to try to use the virus to treat descend muscular dystrophy. That's the genetic disorder you were talking about earlier. Got It. So a lot of these therapies work by kind of targeting gene or genes that are the root of a disorder. So what's The deal with to Sheng muscular dystrophy John Kids who have Sharon. Lack a functional version of gene called D. M. D., and this gene makes a protein called destroyed often that helps muscles stay healthy. Got It. Okay. The idea is if the problem is that someone lack a working gene, you could just give them a working copy of that gene and what's the most wanted to do was packed some of the genetic code from a disrobing gene inside. Right and then once the virus got into the body, it would infect muscle cells, and then that faulty code is replaced with a functional version. Right? smokey says a Aviv, this harmless virus would work. Station service it's a molecular Fedex truck. Carries a genetic payload and it's delivering to its target right but it turns out bring a gene is a little bit harder. Then delivering a package and destroyed gene is especially challenging. One reason is it's is the a the virus are Fedex truck is incredibly tiny even among viruses. It's so small. You need an electron microscope just to see it, and then you have the destroyed gene, which is huge. It's the largest known human gene it contains about five. Hundred Times more genetic code than a so fitting that specific gene into that specific virus would be like trying to get a football stadium into a fedex truck something like that. Yeah, and most he has some other challenges to One is that do sheng affects billions of muscle cells all over the body. So this a delivery truck would have to be programmed to find all of these cells recognize them, and then infect them with this new genetic code. Yeah and some spent fifteen years tackling these challenges he was going along you is making progress he said, but it was coming one small step at a time. This is very challenging. It was mount ever said the gene therapy community in each one of these steps was setting up base camp, but then in nineteen, ninety, nine so mulcahy's work for that matter all gene therapy research pretty much came to a stop. The reason was that a teenager named Jesse. Gelsinger had died in the gene therapy experiment, right? I. Mean I. Remember Learning about that in graduate school in genetics. It was horrible. It was really sad the experiment he was part of had nothing to do with muscular dystrophy or the virus nothing to do with some all skis work, but it didn't matter right gene therapy trials were postponed or abandoned investors disappeared and so did research funding it stopped everything everyone got supercautious everyone except the muscular dystrophy association. The Jerry Lewis Telethon people they continue to push for the advancement of gene

Sandworm: A New Era of Cyberwar and the Hunt for the Kremlin's Most Dangerous Hackers
"Everybody from the British. Ask this week's interview. Episode has any Greenberg senior writer at wired. He just SORTA book called Sand Worm New Era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's Miss, dangerous hackers, it is all about hacking group inside of the Russian government called San Worm. They were responsible for the most damaging cyber warfare attacks over the past year there behind not PECI. The hackers took out in the mayor shipping line hospitals across the U. K San has totally escalated. What we think of Cyber War, and he's book gets all into how they were discovered how they were flushed out the. The intricacies of these various hacks. It's super interesting. The book is a thrill ride. If you're looking for something that isn't the virus. This is like a thriller, a highly recommended. It was really fun to talk to her about the stuff. one thing I. WanNa know we're all at home so during this in every might hear some kids in the background. I asked you just be a little forgiving that we're all. We're all dealing with it and he was a great interview. Check Out Sandy Greenberg of sand worm, a new era of cyber war and the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous hack. Any Greenberg your senior writer at wired you're also the author of Sand Worm, new era of cyber war in the hunt for the Kremlin's most dangerous. Welcome glad to be here so even writing about cybersecurity frontier I think you just said two thousand six and writing about Cybersecurity, but this book sand worm as I was reading it. It seems like it's called the new era of cyber war. It seems like there's been a huge turn in sort of state-sponsored. Particularly Russians sponsored cyber attacks. How did you come onto that notion? How did you begin reading this book I'm I'm very curious how you see. See that turn happening well. In late twenty sixteen, my former colleague Kim Zetter she had been the one who really covered state sponsored hacking in cyber war stuff, but she left wired, and this was also at the time. When you know Russian hackers were meddling in the US election, they'd hacked the democratic. National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Clinton Campaign, so my editors were really primes on face, mantra hacking all of a sudden, but what they? They really what they told me they wanted was a actually like a big takeover of the whole magazine. All about cyber war, but cyber war to me is different than those kinds of espionage election, meddling tactics so I went looking for no real cyber war story, which means to me like a actual disruptive cyber attacks, and as I looked around. It seemed like the place where that was really happening was in Ukraine not really in the US in fact maybe. Maybe what was happening in? Ukraine seemed to me like it was in some ways, the only real full blown cyber war that was actually occurring where Russian hackers were not just attacking the election which they had done, they tried this spoof the results of a presidential election, but they had also attacks media and destroyed their computers. They had attacked government agencies and tried to like destroy entire networks, and then they had turned off the power for the first time. In December of two thousand, fifteen, the the first actual blackout triggered by hackers, and just as I was look into this happened again the the effect, the seem hacker group caused a blackout this time in the capital of Kiev so I wince looking in Ukraine for this cyber war story that. Turned into a cover story for wired that kind of gave editors what they wanted, but then also kept unfolding This cyber war kept growing in scope and scale and. The original story written for wired was kind of about the fact that you could look to Ukraine to see the future of cyber war that will what was happening. There might soon spread to the rest of the world. And that is actually what happens to like just after we publish that cover story to same hackers released this climactic terrible cyber attack in Ukraine. Called Not Petiot that spread beyond Ukrainians became the worst cyberattack history cost ten billion dollars, so when that happened, that was when I saw that there was potential to do a book about this that it was not just a kind of case study about Ukraine or even kind of predictive story, but a an actual full story arc about this one group that had carried out the what I would say was not only the first. First Real Cyber War, but the worst cyberattack in history and the you know I wanted to capture the the Ark of that story in the effects, the real experience of cyber war. Yeah, so the group is called sand worm in this is just one of the the sort of opening arcs of the book is how they've come. They come to be named this because references and code walk people through just like it's so. relatable that like even these hackers are using using this language that leads them recalled Sandwich Tell people about it. So when I started to look into the origins of this group after that second blackout attack I I found that this this company called eyesight partners which have been acquired by fire I I, said partners was the first to find these hackers in twenty, fourteen, basically using fishing in kind of typical espionage tactics, plant malware in the networks of typical Russian hacking targets like groups across Eastern, Europe and NATO in a look like what they were doing was just kind of typical espionage. They were planning. This by wear calls lack energy buds will first of all they could see that they were rushing, because they had this server that they were using to administer some of these attacks and they. They left the server, so anybody could look at it in. There was a kind of Russian language to file for how to use black energy on the service, so these guys seem like they were rushing, but even more interesting in some ways. was that they to track each victim each instance of black energy? This malware has little campaign code in each campaign was a reference to the science fiction novel Dune and you know so like one of them was something about Iraq is, and then one of them is about the sutter cars, these like imperial soldiers in in that SCI FI universe so I said partners named this group sand worm, because well just because it's a cool. Name associated with doing, but it turned out to me. It became this very powerful because a sandwich miss this monster that lies beneath the surface, and occasionally arises from underground to do terribly destructive things. partners didn't know that at the time, they they soon afterward realized what sand. was doing was not just espionage, but they were actually doing reconnaissance for disruptive cyberattacks. They were also hacking power grids. They were planning black energy, not only in the European Eastern European targets in the US power grid networks as well. The Ultimately Syndrome was the first twenty fifteen to cross that line in use black energy as the first step in a multi step attack that led to a blackout. So this was not just espionage really was kind of like you know this monster that rises from under the ground to do terrible acts of mass destruction that came to pass so one of the things that comes up over in the book. Is this growing sense of dread from security researchers and analysts? Oh this is an imminent threat to the united. States just Ukraine, but like this is happening here and then there's a sense that the United States actually open the door to this kind of warfare with stuxnet. which was an attack on Iran? How how did those connect for you that it seemed like there's a new rule of engagement new set of rules of engagement for cyber warfare that actually the United States implicitly created with with stuxnet by attacking Iran. Yeah, I mean I tried to highlight. Clearly sand worm are the real bad guys in the story, they are the actual hacker group that did these terribly reckless destructive attacks that actually in some cases put people's lives at risk, the kind of in some parts of the story they actually shutdown medical record systems and I. Think may have cost people's lives with cyber attacks today they are the actual antagonist here, but I also want to highlight the ways that the US government is is partially responsible for the state of Cyber War, and there are a few ways that that's true. I The US! Open the Pandora's box of cyber war with stuxnet. This piece of now where that. That was used to destroy Iranian nuclear enrichment centrifuges that was the first piece of our that actually have caused that physical disruption destruction, and we now see Sandra doing the same thing in Ukraine. In in fact, in some ways around the world, also the the US hordes, these kind of zero day, secret hacking techniques, some of which were stolen and leaked and used by sand worm, but then I think the in fact, the biggest way that I tried to highlight that the US is responsible or complicit or negligent. Here is that we did not call allows what Santorum was doing in Ukraine and say to Russia. We know what you're doing. This is unacceptable. Nobody should be turning out the lights. Two civilians with cyber attacks. There wasn't a message like that I. mean the Obama White House sent a message to Russia over this kind of cyber hotline to say your election hacking is not okay. We see what you're doing and we want you to stop, but they said nothing about a tube blackout attacks in Ukraine, and that was kind of implicit signal to Russia. They could keep. Keep escalating, and even as all the cyber security, researchers and Ukrainians were warning that what was happening to Ukraine, would soon spread to the rest of the world, the US government ignore this both Obama, and then the trump administration until that prediction came to pass and a sand worm cyberattack did spread to the rest of the world, and it was too late, and we all suffered globally as a result, so let's talk about patch it. WAS CATASTROPHIC IN SCOPE, right? It took out the mayor shipping line, which is a massive business. It took out some hospitals in UK like it was huge in scope. I don't think people really put it all together. Talk about how it started and how big it grew. Yeah, so not too was kind of like big apotheosis sandwich, where all of these predictions of the terribly destructive things they were doing to the rest of the world came to pass but it did it started in Ukraine. They hijacked this. The the software updates of this accounting software called me doc that is basically used by everybody in Ukraine. The quicken turbo tax of Ukraine. If you do business in Ukraine, you have to have this installed, so sanborn hijack the updates of that news to push out this worm to thousands of victims mostly in Ukraine, but it was a worm, so it's spread the mmediately end quickly kind of carpet bombs. The entire Ukrainian Internet's every computer at spread to would encrypt permanently. You could not recover the computer, so it very quickly took down pretty much every. Every Ukrainian government agency twenty two banks multiple airports for hospitals in Ukraine that I. could count and in each of these cases. What is eight took them down. I mean it destroyed essentially all of their computers, which requires sometimes weeks or months to recover from, but then as you know, this is a worm that does not respect national borders. So even though it was, it seemed to be an attack intended to disrupt Ukraine. It immediately spread beyond Ukraine's borders. Borders to everybody who had this accounting software installed? That was doing business in Ukraine and some people who didn't so that includes Maersk. The world's largest shipping firm and Fedex and Mondelez, which owns cadbury, NABISCO and ranking manufacturing firm that makes tylenol in Merck. The Pharmaceutical Company in New Jersey on each of these companies lost hundreds of millions of dollars. The scale of this is kind of difficult to capture but I in the book I tried to. To I focused in part Maersk because it is just a good company to look at because you can. They had this gigantic global physical machine that is they have seventy six ports around the world that they own as well as these massive ships that have tens of thousands of shipping containers on them. And I told the story of how on this day seventeen of their terminals of were entirely paralyzed by this attack with ships arriving with just. Piles of containers on them. Nobody could unload. Nobody knew what was inside of nobody knew how to load or unload them with around the world of seventeen terminals, thousands of trucks, Semitrailers, carrying containers were lining up in Lyons miles long because the gates that were kind of checkpoints to check in the these trucks to drop something off or pick it up. They were paralyzed as well. This was a fiasco on a global scale is responsible for a fifth of the world's lable shipping capacity. They were truly just a rendered brain dead by this attack, but yeah displayed out at all of these different victims MERC had to borrow their own each vaccine from the Center for Disease Control because they're manufacturing. Manufacturing was disrupted by this, and it ultimately spread to a company called nuance, nate speech to text software. They have a service that does this for hospitals across the US to dozens of our possibly hundreds of American hospitals at this backlog of transcriptions to medical records that were lost because of this, and that resulted in patients, being do for surgeries or transfers, other hospitals in nobody knew their medical records were updated. I mean this was scale where hundreds of hospitals each of which has thousands of patients missing changes the medical records. We don't know what the effects of that work, but very well could've actually harmed people's health. Our lives I mean the scale of not petty is very difficult to. Get your mind around, but we do know that you know monetarily cost ten billion dollars, which is by far the biggest number we've ever seen, but it also had this this kind of harder to quantify toll on people's lives, so it it you know you read about it at length and wired. Obviously these companies go down of ripples in mainstream sort of general press, but I don't feel like people really not like Oh. This Russian group called San Worms sponsored by the Russian government. Unleash this attack in it caused this cascading effect of failure and disaster cost in that because we know what we can attribute it to the government, our government. I don't feel like that connection got made for people. What is the gap between other as a hack and Oh, this is actually a type of warfare engagement, because that that connection seems very tenuous. I think for a lot of people. Even as sort of the more general mainstream press covers this stuff. Yeah, you know. I don't think that that's is just like the nature of. Of Cyber War I think that was a failing that that lack of connection is a failing on our government's parts, and on you could say even on the part of some of these victims like these large companies I mean I at the time did not pitch it happened. I was fully on the trail of standard within days. I was talking to cyber security researchers who? Who had piece together? Some of the forensics to show the not petiot was Sandra that it was a Russian state-sponsored attack in yet none of those companies that I mentioned mercker Mondelez or Maersk or Fedex, or any of them wanted to say the Russia had done this to them and know governments were talking about either like the Ukrainian government was. They're always willing to point. Point the finger at Russia, but the US government was not, and you know that to me seemed to be just kind of I mean I felt like I was being gas. Let's at that point. I had watched Russia due to Ukraine for a long time at that point tonight. I sort of understood that NATO in the West. We had this kind of cruel logic that. Ukraine is not us. Russia can do what it likes to Ukraine because they're not NATO not e you. They are Russia's sphere of influence or something I think that that's very wrongheaded, but at least it made sense. You know to have that that viewpoints, but now this attack had spread from Ukraine to hit American soil American companies in many cases and yet still the US government was saying nothing I just thought this was bizarre and you know so i. For months I was like. Trying to get any of these companies to tell the story of of their experiences, not Peta I was trying to figure out why the US government wasn't talking about the fact that this was a Russian cyberattack and ultimately I. Think it was I. think it was kind of I know partly disorganization negligence. I think it may have something to do with the fact that the. The? Trump administration doesn't like talking about Russian hackers for obvious reasons, but eight months after it took eight months ultimately for the US government to finally say not that it was a was Russia it was the worst cyberattack in history, and then a month later. The White House impose consequences in put new sanctions on Russia and response, but it took nine months and more importantly it took. Multiple years this without was the first time this was twenty eighteen, and the Russian cyber war in Ukraine had started around the fall of Twenty fifteen, so that's just incredible span of negligence when the US government said nothing about these escalating unfolding. Acts, of Cyber Award that there should have been unacceptable from the very beginning I mean these are the kind of quintessential acts of state sponsored cyber attacks on civilians, trying out the lights. You know that's the kind of thing that I believe that the US government should have called out and drawn a red line across at the very beginning took ears, so I do think it was a big failing. Of of diplomacy, it just seemed like that part of the problem, and this is kind of an expression is it's so hard to describe like if the Russian government sent fighter jets to America and live their support. Okay, like everyone understood, you can see it. You can understand what happened there. In the you know, there's like a however many decades of movies about how to fight that war. This is a bunch of people in a room typing. Like it there's just an element of this where the dangerous Oh federal where the attack is invisible, and while the effects might be very very tangible, the causes are still sort of mysterious people so. My question is who is sandwich. What what do we know about them? Where do they work? What are they like? Do we have a sense of how this operation actually operates? In some ways the the biggest challenge of reporting this book, and I spent essentially the third act of the book, the last third of the reporting of the book, trying to answer the question of who is in worm, who are these people? Where are they located? What motivates them and I guess to partially spoil the ending here. They are a unit of the year you. They are a part of Russia's military intelligence agency, which is responsible for you know, this is not a coincidence. They are responsible for election meddling responsible for the attempted assassination of You. chemical weapons in the United Kingdom they're responsible for the downing of a seventeen as commercial passenger jet over Ukraine were three hundred innocent people died on the G. R.. You are this incredibly reckless callous out military intelligence agency, but they act like kind of almost just cut through mercenaries around the world. Doing Russia's bidding in ways that are very scary, so I threw essentially like a combination of excellent work of a bunch of security researchers who I was speaking to combined with some confirmation from US intelligence agencies, and then ultimately some other clues from the investigation of Robert Muller into meddling all these things combined created the trail that led to one group within the JERE. You that were you know I? Eventually had some names and faces even address of this this group, and all that was actually only finally fully confirms After the book came out Justin in recent months when the White House finally actually was the State Department's. End as well as the UK on Australian and other governments together finally said yes, sand worm is in fact that this unit of the year you so this theory that I developed in positive near the end of the book was finally basically confirmed by governments just in recent months. So one thing that strikes me at that is I, think of the Russian military things. Gru is being foreboding being obviously, they're very very good at this other a buttoned up in then they have like a incredible social media presence that kind of POPs up throughout the book that distracts from what doing. They set up Gucci for two point Oh when they were doing the DNC hacks that fed to wikileaks in the. That account insisted it was just guy. They set up the shadow brokers which was. I read. It is just like your some goof-balls like they wanted to seem a lot dumber and a lot smaller than they were. They were very effective at it to people I. Talk About those that strategy, and then I guess my question have is like a re better at seeing that strategy for what it is well. You make a really interesting point. The uses these false flags like throughout their recent history that we I should say we don't know that they were responsible for shadow brokers. In fact, nobody knows who shot a brokers. The shadow brokers truly are, and they are in some ways the biggest mystery in this whole story, this one group that hacked the NSA apparently and leaked a bunch of their zero day hacking techniques, or maybe they were even say insiders. We still don't know the answer to that question, but the other other incidents you mentioned. That are you are responsible for this Guja for two point zero fake hacktivists leaked a bunch of the Clinton documents. They're responsible for other false flags like they at one point to call themselves the Cyber Caliphate pretended to be Isis. They've a pretended to be like patriotic pro. Russian Ukrainians at some point they they're always like wearing different masks ends. They're very deceptive. in the a later chapter of the book, some of the biggest one of the biggest attacks they. They did was this attack on the twenty thousand Olympics where they not only wore a false mask, but they actually had layers of false flags where as cyber security researchers W. This melwert was used to destroy the entire back end of the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics. Just as the opening ceremony began, this was a catastrophic events. The aware had all of these fake clues made look like it was Chinese or North Korean or maybe Russian. Nobody could tell it was like. It was this kind of confusion bomb almost designed to to just make researchers throw up their hands. Give up on attributing mallards. Any particular actor was only through some amazing detective work by some of the analysts that I spoke to the able to cut through those false flags identify that sand was behind this essentially, but yeah, it's it is a one very real characteristic of the jury you that they are almost they seem to almost take pleasure or like be showing off their deception capabilities to and their evolving those capabilities they are getting more deceptive over time as fake gets more, destructive aggressive.

This is bowes I'm a podcast or By, I, a Gamer Five G. is changing the gaming world in really unexpected exciting ways with the help of Samsung Five G. I'm getting a peek at how gaming is getting faster smoother and can even improve our lives well. Let's dish some secrets about the future gaming. Dr Jean Mechanical Direct Route Game Research and development at the Institute of the future. She's also a bestselling author game inventor. She's optimistic about gaming impact on us and our minds. The biggest thing that we've seen in research is that. We need to be able to game in the moment wherever we are. So, what happens when when you're playing when your favorite games is that it fires up than her logical pathways, it's kind of like having a of caffeine and a pet dog from your favorite coach, and you've just meditated for an hour. This emotional neurological power up is called the game transfer effect, and that effect is heightened when using five. Five G. The game transfer fact requires you to be totally immersed in the game, so you want to have the most amazing graphics and the most immersive audio and with five G. to do that anywhere anytime, be one of the first to harness the game transfer effect with Samsung Galaxy Five G. now available on Galaxy, S Twenty-five g and a seventy one five G. feels good to be I with Samsung. I love to play the game of like. Imagine the meeting and imagine that the one set of meeting which is like the actual hackers finding the vulnerabilities figuring out how to jump from Windows, eight computer to some sort of physical hardware controller that actually runs like that. That's a very hard problem in and of itself, and then the other meeting. They're like what we're GONNA do is claim to be a guy called Gucci for two point, Oh and like those are. Not Connected Right, but the way they throughout the book the way they execute East campaigns they're deeply connected, and that seems like not only just a new kind of warfare, and you kind of craft, but some just consistently seems to work in surprising ways like the tech press is GonNa. Be Like Gucci. I says this and we're. There's never that next step of also we think it's Russian government, and that seems like first of all I'm dying. I imagine the meeting right. I would love to be a fly on the wall of the meeting where they decide what their twitter name is going to be today. I'm very curious how they evolve those attacks in such a way that it just seems to be more and more effective time. Yeah, I mean. I also love to have been those meetings in. It's my one kind of regret in this book that I never actually got. Interviews, it's almost an impossible thing to do. They liked find defectors from the R., you or something. He will tell those stories at a knock it murdered I mean. It's kind of a possible, but but. In some cases? I think your earlier points. They almost seem kind of bumbling in these things they do them in a very improvisational way. for two point Oh seemed almost like it was a justice thing they invented on the spot, tried to cover up some of the the accidental ups like they had left russian-language formatting errors in the documents that they had leaked from the DNC, so they admitted this guy who appeared the next day and started. Talking about being a Romanian. Friends as motherboard Lorenza, Franceschi decry he started this conversation. Align with with Guja for two point, oh basically proved at the guy could not actually properly speak Romanian. BE Russian speaker. In fact, it was. It was almost comical at the same time. They're using very sophisticated hacking techniques doing destructive attacks on a massive scale, but they're also. They seem like they're kind of making it up as they go along. They do things that don't actually seem very kind of strategically smart. They kind of seem like they're trying to impress their boss for the day. Sometimes with just like some sometimes, it's just seems like the Jere. You wakes up in asks themselves. Like what can we blow up today? Rather than thinking like? How can we accomplish the greater strategic objectives of the Russian Federation? So they are fascinating in that way and very stringent colorful group. That's I think one of the biggest questions I have here is. We spend a lot of time trying to imagine what flat and Mirror Putin wants. You know when he grows up, but it. None of this seems targeted like what is the goal for Russia to disrupt the Winter Olympics right like. Is there a purpose to that? Is that just a strike fear? Is it just to? EXPAND THAT SUV influenced. Is it just to say we have the capability furious is there? has there ever really been the stated goal for this kind of cyber warfare? That one is particularly mystifying. I mean you can imagine why Russia would want to attack the Olympics. They were banned from the two thousand Eighteen Olympics doping, but then you would think that they might want to attack the Olympics and send a message maybe like eight deniable message a message that you know if you continue to ban us. We're GONNA. Continue to attack you like like any terrorists would do, but instead they attacked the winter. Olympics in this way, that really seemed like they were trying not to get caught, and instead like make it look like the was Russia North Korea? And then you have to like what is the point of that was? The could kind of. Sit there in Moscow and kind of like rub their hands together in gleefully. Watch this chaos unfolds. It almost really does seem like it was petty vindictive thing that they just for their own emotional needs wanted to make sure that nobody could enjoy the Olympics if they were not going to enjoy them I that was, but that one is i. think outlier in some ways for the most part you can kind of see. The Russia is advancing. The G. R. You that sand worm is advancing something that does generally make sense which is that. In Ukraine for instance, they're trying to make Ukraine look like a failed state. They're trying to make Ukrainians. Lose faith in their security. Services are trying to prevent investors globally from funneling money into Ukraine trying to create a kind of frozen conflict, as we say in Ukraine where there's this constant perpetual state of degradation. They're not trying to conquer the country, but they're trying to create a kind of permanent war in Ukraine and would cyber war. You can do that beyond the traditional front end. It is in some ways the same kind of tactic that they used in other places like the US which. which here we saw more than influence operation that they were hacking leaking organizations like democratic campaign organizations and anti doping organizations to kind of so confusion to embarrass on their targets. They're trying to influence like the international audiences opinion these people, but in Ukraine, it is in some ways, just a different kind of influence operation where they're trying to influence the world's view of Ukraine. Influence Ukrainians view of their themselves under government to make them feel like they are in a war zone even when their kid hundreds of miles from the actual fighting. That's happening on the eastern fronts in the eastern region of. Of Ukraine so in a book you you you go to Kiev. You spent time in Ukraine. Is there a sense in that country that while sometimes light goes out sometimes our TV stations. Their computers don't boot anymore. Because they got rewritten, the Hydros got Zeros like. Is there a sense that this is happening? Is there a sense the defy back is there does Microsoft deploy you know dozens of engineers to to help fight back. How does that play out on the ground there? Yeah, I mean to be fair. Ukrainians are very stoic about these things and regular. Ukrainian citizens were not bothered by you know. Know a short blackout. They didn't particularly care you know. This blackout was the first ever. Hacker induced blackout in history but Ukrainian cyber security. People were very unnerved by this end, people in these actual utilities were traumatized I mean these attacks were truly like relentless sins very kind of scary for the actual operators at the controls I mean in the first blackout attack. These poor operators Ukrainian control room in western Ukraine they were locked out of their computers, and they had to watch their own mouse cursor. Click through circuit breakers, turning off the power in front of them I. Mean They watched it happen? At these kind of Phantom hands to control of their mouse movements, so they took this very very seriously, but yet Ukrainians as a whole I mean they have seen a lot. They are going through an actual physical war. They've seen the seizure of Crimea and the invasion of the east of the country. You know the the date hits. A Ukrainian general was assassinated with a car bomb in the middle of Kiev, so they have a lot of problems, and I'm not sure that cyber war is one of the top of their minds, but not patio I. Did, actually reach Ukrainians normal. Ukrainian civilians to it. It shook them as well. I talked to two regular Ukrainians. who found that they couldn't swipe into the Kiev Metro. They couldn't use their credit card at the grocery store. All the ATM's were down The Postal Service was taken out for every computer that the postal service had was taken out for more than a month. I mean these things really did affect people's lives, but it kind of. A until that kind of climactic worm. Not Patio for I think for this to really reach home for Ukrainians. who have kind of seen so much. How do you fight back? I, mean I one of things that struck me as I was reading. The book is so many of the people you talked to people who are identifying the threat. They're actually private companies. Eyesight was the first even detect it. they are contractors to intelligence agencies the military in some cases, but they're not necessarily the government right like it's not necessarily Microsoft. Who has to issue the patches from the software not necessarily GE which makes simplicity, which is the big industrial controls talk about a lot. How does all that come together into a defense because that seems like harder problem of coordination? Yeah, I mean defense in Cyber. Security is in an eternal problem. It's incredibly complicated, and when you have a really sophisticated determined adversary, it know they will win eventually ends I. think that they're absolutely lessons for defense in this book about you know. Maybe you need to really really think about software updates for instance like the kind that were hijacked to a with this medoc accounting software. As a vector for terrible cyber-attacks. Imagine that like. Any of your insecure apps that have kind of updates can be become a a piece of Malware, really unique to signature networks need to think about patching on. There are just an endless kind of checklist of things to every organization needs to do to protect themselves so. In some ways that just like a Sisyphean task and I don't. I don't try to answer that question in the book because it's too big, and it's kind of boring as well, but what I do really hammer on is the thing that the government's really could've done here. which is to try to establish norms tried to control attackers through diplomacy through kind of disciplinary action through things like kind of Geneva Convention for Cyber War if. If you think about a kind of analogy to say like chemical weapons, we could just try to give everyone in the world a gas mask that they have to carry around with them at all times, or we could create a Geneva. Convention norm that chemical weapons should not be used in if they are than crime, and you get pulled in front of the Hague. Hague and we've done the ladder and I think that in some ways should be part of the the answer to cyber war as well we need to establish norms and make countries like Russia or like organizations like the G. Are you understand that there will be consequences for these kinds of attacks, even when the victim is not the US or NATO or the? The EU and I think we're only just starting to think about that. One of the questions I had as reading is it seems like a very clear red line for almost everyone you talk to is attacks on the power grid right? That is just unacceptable. You should not do it if you do it. You've crossed a line and there should be some consequence. Is, that clear to governments. Is that something that our government says? It's something that the says it has been established. It seems like it's it's the conventional wisdom wants to salvage, but I'm not unclear whether that is actually the line that exists. It definitely has not been established, and when I kind of did these I managed to get sort of interviews with the top cyber security officials in the Obama ends trump administration Jay Michael Daniel was the cyber. Cyber Coordinator for the administration was the kind of cyber coordinator boss in the The Homeland Security Adviser for trump and both of them when I asked him about like wiped. Why didn't you know to put it bluntly like? Why didn't you respond? When Russia caused blackouts in Ukraine? Both of them essentially said well. You know that's not actually the rule that we want to set. We want to be able to cause blackouts in our adversaries networks. In their power grids when we are in a war situation or when we believe it's in our national interest, so you know that's the thing about these cyber war capabilities. This is part of the problem that every country. Absolutely the US among them isn't really interested in controlling these weapons, because we in this kind of Lord of the rings fashion, we are drawn to them to like we want to maintain the ability to use those weapons ourselves and nobody wants to throw this ring in the fires, of Mount Doom. We all wanted maintain the ring and imagine that we can use it for good in out. So that's why neither administration called that Russia for doing this because they want that power to. Make the comparison to to nuclear weapons but Negotiated drawdown and treaties with Russia in the past we count warheads where aware that the United States stockpiles can destroy the world. Fifty Times over today maybe tomorrow one hundred hundred like what we have a sense of the the measure of force that we can. Put on the world when it comes to nuclear weapons, there's a sense that Oh, we should never use these right like we have them as a deterrent, but we've gained out that actually leads to his mutually assured destruction like there's an entire body of academics. There's entire body of researchers. Entire body is got scenario planning with that kind of weapon. Does that same thing exist for for cyber weapons. There are absolutely. Know community is of academics. Policymakers who are thinking about this stuff now, but I don't think it's kind of gotten through to actual government decision. that. There needs to be kind of cyber deterrence in how that would work. In in the comparison to nuclear weapons is like instructive, but not exactly helpful. In fact, it's kind of counter-productive because we cannot deter cyber-attacks with other cyber-attacks i. don't think that's GonNa work in part because we haven't even tried to establish it yet. There are no kind of rules or read lines, but then I think more importantly. Everybody thinks that they can get away with cyberattacks that they can. They're going to create a false flag. That's clever enough that that when they blow up a power grid, they can blame their neighbor instead, so they think they're. They're gonNA. Get Away with it, and that causes them to do it anyway. A not fear the kind of assured destruction so I think that the the right response, the way to to deter cyber attacks is not with the promise of a cyber attack in return. It's with all the other kind of tools we have, and they've been used sometimes, but but they were not in the case of Sand Werman. Those tools include like sanctions which came far too late in the story indictments of hackers. In some cases, we still haven't really seen syndrome. Hackers indicted for the things that they did in Ukraine or or even not petty. And then ultimately just kind of messaging like calling out naming and shaming bad actors, and that has happened to some degree with Sandra, but in some cases there have still been massive failures there there has still been no public attribution of the Sandwich attack on the twenty eighteen Olympics I mean. My Book has been out for months. I think show pretty clear evidence that syndrome is responsible for this attack. The very least it was Russia and yet the US and Korean War, These Olympics took place at UK, none of these governments have named Russia as having done that. That attack which almost just invites them to do it again whenever our next Olympics are going to be, I guess maybe not this year, but if you don't send that message than you're just essentially inviting Russia to try again so I think might my big question is what happens now? I mean right we you write about. The NSA has tailored access operations, which is their elite hacking group. We are obviously interested in maintaining some of these capabilities. We've come to a place where people are writing books about how it works. What is the next step? What is the next? does it just keep getting worse or does this kind of diplomacy you're talking about? Is that beginning to happen I? Think there is some little glimmers of hope about the diplomacy beginning to happen I mean this year in February I think it was the State Department's called out a sand worm attack on Georgia, where a worms hackers basically took down a ton of Georgian websites by attacking the hosting providers as well as a couple of TV's broadcasters in the US. State Department with a few other governments not. said this was sand. Worm named the unit of the GRU. That's is that was confirmation that I've been looking for for a long time, but they also made a point of saying that we're calling this out is unacceptable, even though Georgia. Georgia is not part of NATO or the U. so that's that's progress. That's essentially creating a new kind of rule. That's state-sponsored. Hackers can't do certain things, no matter who the victims and that's really important. Also, it was kind of interesting because federal officials like gave me a heads up about that announcement before happened, which they have very very rarely do and I think they were trying. To say was in we. We read your book and we. Got The message okay like Stop attacking us about this like we're trying. We're doing something different here I. Don't want flatter myself that I actually changed their policy, but it did seem interesting that they wanted to tell me personally about this so i. I think that like maybe our stance on this kind of diplomacy is evolving, and we're learning lessons, but at the same time we also see the attacks evolving to. To and their new innovations in these kinds of disruption happening, we've seen since some of these terrible Sandra attacks. You know other very scary things like this piece of our called Triton or crisis that was used to disabled safety systems in a oil refinery in Saudi Arabia on that was you know that could have caused an actual physical explosion of petrochemical facility? The the attacks are evolving to okay final last real question. Tell people where they can get your book. You can find all kinds of places by on indie Greenberg Dot net. Written another book as well previously, yes. That's right. I wrote a book about wikileaks. Cypher punks and things like that. That's right well. I'm a huge fan. It was an honor to talk to you. Thank you so much for coming on I know it's. It's a weird time to be talking about anything, but the coronavirus I was very happy to talk about something else, which is that it seems a little bit more in control Even if it is quite dangerous, a thank you for the time. I appreciate it. Yeah, I'm glad to provide people with a different kind of apocalypse as a distraction.

The couple's 20 year old son Daniel was killed family friends say Instead of running for cover, Daniel ran to the aid of his father. I'm thinking maybe another kid would hide in a closet.

Inside Washington's Name Change
"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.
Washington's NFL team to change name and logo
"Redskins have officially announced the Redskins name and logo will be retired in the near future. A statement from owner Dan Snyder and coach Ron Rivera stay there, working closely to develop a new name, a design approach that will last for the next 100 years. You can't tell me from whence you came unless you can tell me how far you have to give And this reflects the history chief walled Redhawk Brown with the Jeron, aka Indian Nation tells mornings on them. All The identity of the Redskins gives indigenous people in identity in America. Native people have fought for years to validate the two history to be promulgated in the history books. And the educational system itself our kids to learn about first American indigenous American history. So the name Red skin keeps his ally he says. To delete the Redskins name is to negate Native Americans presence in the country. John Matthews on Ellen dot com and D. C. Mayor says the Redskins name isn't the only thing she wants to change about the Team D. C. Mayor Muriel Bowser's repeating calls for the Redskins to change their location and leave FedEx Field in Maryland and moved to the site where there Former stadium K now stands that Washington football team should be playing in Washington. But she says there are a lot of things that need to happen before that wish can come true, including getting control of the land and what we're for those parcels for the District of Columbia. She has events DC, has vetted various plans for the site. Some include an NFL stadium. Heather
"fedex" Discussed on Social Pros Podcast
"We are seeing much heavier in a faster growth in the instagram conversation In the number of times that were mentioned on that platform People using that direct message function same with Facebook Messenger. I think the conversation has really shifted from a people posting on our wall to people sending US messages on Facebook Messenger but by far instagram has been has seen the most growth in recent days there was also a shift whenever twitter switched their platform from a social media platform in the APP store to a news platform in the APP store. We I think that's what we saw a big shift in the conversation there because we were still really heavily mentioned on twitter especially for customer service reasons. I know there's a ton of people who only have twitter accounts for customer service complaints. Like that's the only reason they ever use it. So we see our share of those But we see way more news on twitter now than we have in the past so I would say. Twitter has shifted therapy. Because it's more newsy. It's more what's happening right now. Versus that traditional customer service is what I had for lunch type of platform that was previously so obviously with social chatter. You as you had mentioned. There's some things you have to deal with customer complaints. Obviously you mentioned you know doorbell videos and things like that. But there's also a lot of good chatter happening to and you're T- recently just did a huge campaign highlighting some of these really amazing sort of Going the extra mile and doing the extra effort type of things. Tell us about this this amazing campaign that you did. Yes oh I could talk about this in my sleep. Okay so this is made possible by so I'm going to start from the very beginning Several years ago we started finding these types of posts on social media and sharing them without tying them into a campaign. We had team members who were literally save people's lives. They would get out of their truck and they would go rescue people from a burning car or they help people when they saw a wreck on the side of the road or they would jump into a pond to save somebody from submerging car which I mean actual stories these stories morphed into a mini campaign that we call delivering thinks. And so we would say we're delivering things to Eric for rescuing somebody from a a car wreck Whatever it might be And these posters took off. I mean they were. They were the best performing pieces of content. That we have ever seen in the history of Fedex. Ever hands down I'm talking you know we used to have a few hundred likes on average on post and as soon as we started sharing this content organically We would have thousand thousands and then we would. Obviously we could use pay boost post that were preferring well and we would see hundreds of thousands of lights on these types of it was it was incredible to see them take off like wildfire and we knew we had something. So we continue that delivering Delivering thanks campaign for a few years. And this last year in June of Twenty nineteen. We worked with the new agency and we really were tasked with the this. I guess the assignment was. How do we take this campaign? And how do we talk about our team members in a way? That's going to become more engaging that is bigger it's tied to our our. We have a purpose. That's connecting people impossibilities around the world. So what can we do to happen to that and to make this bigger so the made possible by campaign was born and what we did was found stories which I mean when you have four hundred ninety thousand team members around the world these stories will come pouring into you But we found team members. Were doing wonderful things whether it's saving people that are in life threatening positions or if they are rescuing puppies or Trying to help somebody get surgery because they There's a hole. The first the first story there was about a person Jamaica who helped a child get the surgery that he needed through this program that Fedex had sponsored and he went through so many jump through so many hoops to make it happen in the able to get a surgery and there was all because of this team member who went the extra mile for them so we highlighted him to kick it off And these stories are they. They're so great internally and externally so internally at Fedex we have. We've got so many team members that are on our facebook page and they're seeing our social media content and they are active. They are commenting on this. This content as well so Some of the stories that we post on facebook for example they highlight couriers. Who are also on facebook and the couriers will get in there and start saying like thank you so much for highly me or I show sharing my story and people will start talking to the courier and the comments and it just you know it. It gets really cool to see how it conversation plays out so culturally. I think our our team members can see themselves in these stories and it just really helps to create a just paint them in a positive light Because so much of what you see on social media is negative. It's about people complaining. And this really helps. Combat that and and elevate our team members to showcase the ones that are doing good things for the community and when you highlight them and social media to it. It helps make that attitude contagious. People want to be part of the the percentage of team members who are doing great things for their community so I mean. Recently we've seen tons of video shared of our couriers who are there's one that was folding a flak that fallen on the ground when it was shoveling snow for a customer when their their doorstep was just completely covered. We've had a few of those We've actually just had another flag folding story that popped up yesterday maybe so I mean yeah. There's I mean there's a there are so many great things that are team members are doing small things and big things that we can highlight to this campaign and they've been outperforming all of the content that we've that we've been pushing out there. It's really awesome to see and it's. It's a heartwarming campaign to be a part of also Alex is made possible by program is just phenomenal. And you articulated. Why it's optimistic. It has that third party credibility. Because you're not it's not fedex corporate talking about Fedex but it's your carriers and your teams and and other people who were talking in this case positively about about your brand. It's just phenomenal. I think also for me in this kind of gets to my question cut helps me realize the scale at which your organization operates you mentioned six seven thousand mentions a day a half a million employees one of the largest fleets of aircraft and vehicles in rickshaws and the entire in the entire world. My question is how from where you sit as global social media manager there in Memphis Tennessee. How do you work kind of outside of your world? Which is the marketing communications? World going to ask you how you with three different teams I would be. Hr because again. You're dealing with a half a million people who are out there. Tweeting on behalf of the company. In almost all instances positively inappropriately but every now and then maybe something not so appropriate number two customer service because so many of those six or seven thousand missions our customers who are asking whether packages or whereas they're courier or why didn't you pick this up. You know good bad indifferent. And then the third kind of audience at I'll be really curious about would be the operations so the actual running of Fedex where most of those half a million employees set. How'd you kind of work in coordinate with those different departments? Yes okay. That is a very good question. I'm going to rearrange the order in which you asked about so i WanNa talk about customer service because we work with them more than anybody else on a daily basis really The person on my team. Who's managing those That issue management? Who's doing the listening is the one who interacts with them on the rag all the time. They are the critical partners to us. So the reason is that we we see the good the bad the ugly about Fedex across social media especially this person. Who's doing that issue management anytime? She sees something she knows. Our Customer Service Team has not address slip through the cracks or that there is somebody with a massive following or something's gaining traction That they need to nip in the bud immediately or take immediate action on she reaches out to There's an escalation list that we send it up to so There's social media managers and our customer service managers directors who are responsible for the customer service reps on social media who take action on that So the way that we kind of divide and conquer social media with customer service they are actively monitoring all of the mentions of Fedex. Whether it's a Hashtag Orson. At mentioned across our channels they use salesforce to interact with customers. And they've made huge strides. Recently they went from. I want to say the average response time. A few years ago was fifteen hours is what it was down to an eight minute. Response Time average which is incredible Especially across twitter so they they have really come along way and they're great at their jobs. They're really good at what they do. They're very responsive. So what we do is we just help supplement them. If we know that there's something that they maybe didn't see where that hasn't been pulled into salesforce or there's on case assigned to a customer. We help escalate that to them and say. Hey this is something you guys should probably be aware of and would be great if you could take action on. Because it's gaining traction social and we don't want it to become an issue because the most important thing for both of our teams is creating that great fedex experience we have what's called the Purple Promise here Fedex which is I will make every Fedex experience outstanding and so that's ultimately what we all want to do So we stay connected with them as much as we can to make sure that we are creating that great customer experience and nobody feels like their case is not as important as somebody else's so the next time I'll talk about. Hr WE WORK WITH HR on a couple of different in a couple of different ways. One proactively we need to understand from a recruitment standpoint. What are their biggest needs for? Woman created in content. What do we need to be highlighting about FEDEX? Or who are the audiences that we need to read in order to attract and retain talent within our company? The other way though and more of a reactive is we see content from some of our team members that we think we need to share with HR for consideration for social media guidelines because we build the social media guidelines for employees in conjunction with HR We will share. You know what we're seeing trends that we're seeing as far as social media interactions engagements new tools new platforms so as building out those refreshing those guidelines. We know okay. Here's some some new things that are coming. We may need to add to the guidelines because this is become a pattern social media over the last however year so and then the last one operations Operations is an interesting one for us. We I would say the the main way that we work with operations is through. Customer Service on a reactive basis. So if we know that there is somebody who is missing a package and it is critical and we see a way that we can step in and say. Hey you know maybe it's a Fedex express station manager. That is the closest one to a customer. Who's missing a wedding dress? We could reach out to the station manager and say we saw this post Obviously will work with our customer service team to make it happen but They can jump in action to make sure these people received the the items that they need but another way that we work with them is they are really great at submitting story ideas so a lot of our operations team members are on the frontline. They see these team members. And they're the ones interacting with customers. They know about the stories that we need to tell and so we we have a two way relationship. We get the stories from them. We create stories about our team members. Feed into that possible by campaign and then We work with them to make sure that our customers are getting. They need three audiences three very specific and accurate answers. Thank you for for that. I think that really helps our listeners. Who probably dealing with many of the same types of questions and dealing probably not at the scale at which you're you're dealing with. I do WanNa talk a little bit about measurement in. Roi You are a business. It's all about numbers and tracking everything. So I'm curious how you track performance of your team and social media at Fedex you as it relates to the great metric that you used around social customer care moving from your fifteen or eight hours two or fifty dollars to eight minutes type. Sla All the way to the efficacy of your post. How do you kind of set the bar for your team? Then how do you measure their performance.
"fedex" Discussed on Here & Now
"The torrent of news. Recently you may have missed an item about Amazon. It has blocked its third party sellers from using Fedex for delivery. Our next guest says that's another another sign of the coming collapse Fedex. Scott Galloway is professor of marketing at New York University. Stern School of business got welcome. Thanks very much German. Good to be here so you write eight something. That is pretty surprising. which is you say? In the next twenty four months Fedex will either be acquired or lose an additional forty percent plus in value. What why do you say that? So I think entire industries have now been what I call feature is and that is these Incredibly low margin difficult businesses are being used as components components to make high margin more scalable businesses stickier so you have what is arguably the most dominant firm and retail now using fulfilment as a means of trying to establish how much greater loyalty across their loyalty program in this case prime so I think Fedex is being featuring if you will. It's interesting because when I'm driving on the highway I'll I feel like I still see more Fedex trucks than Amazon prime trucks. But maybe that's wrong. No you do Amazon has a fraction of the capital expenditure of the Fedex but they start with several advantage. It's clean sheet design and also as big tax is becoming famous for the move to sort of this algorithm of exploitation and that what is there the reality is Amazon will have a much lower cost base because they will not have things like health benefits or paternity for their drivers in granted. That's not it's not true for all Fedex drivers some of them are contract workers but the caw space the cost structure will be lower. The technology will be better and to be blunt the film it and delivery is all about trust in the most trusted brand in the world right now is Amazon interesting and Amazon. I had a much better on time. Delivery performance over the holidays than index. That's correct some of this reality and some of it is perception in the financial markets. Perception is almost as important in that Amazon is now able to perform what I refer to as a Jedi. mind mind trick against Fedex. In the form of now that they are in the business or officially in the business of fulfillment in the last two years Fedex's shed about forty percent of its value while Amazon is increased. Its value thirty percent. And you're continue to see a further erosion and the Stock Price Fedex even if it's not supported by the fundamentals because the markets have come to believe that one Amazon sets sight on a industry that every other player in the industry begins to shed value to Amazon and the seeds a lot of advantages Amazon. Their cost of capital goes down in enables them to sort of fulfil the promise if you will or make their own future by massively investing in that category to the extent that other players can kind of best now why Fedex and such a worse position than the other big delivery service that we think of which is ups. I think Fedex has not innovated I I think internally they've been very focused or the CNN focused on tax avoidance and just as a consumer if you look at the experience whether it's the user interface there on time delivery relative to Amazon or ups they're just sub-standard. Signing Fedex is the most vulnerable of the logistics and fulfillment players and just to give our listeners. Some of the statistics here Amazon logistics is already shipping being over two and a half billion packages annually in the US three billion for Fedex in the US Four point seven billion for ups. That's according to WHO Morgan Stanley estimates. How did Amazon get into delivery and gained so much ground so quickly in the industry show Amazon? It's boring stuff. That out shareholder value Amazon opportunity to go vertical if you will control the front end of ECOMMERCE and that is the interface interface online with their retail offering and Amazon. It also puts Amazon strengths because this is exceptionally complicated. Takes incredible operational excellence facility with data and quite frankly access to billions and billions of dollars and cheap capital and Amazon. Has All of those things and Amazon is playing hardball with its competitors. It's blocked its third party sellers from even using Fedex not only that Germany but they announced a couple of weeks before Christmas publicly and to do that before the holidays and embarrass fat ax is kind of I acquire the now jailed uses staging a mock homecoming queens ceremony and then pouring pig's blood on somebody. This was this was is really calling fedex out and doing it at the worst moment possible. This was a strategic stabbing. If you will if you were advising Fred Smith at Fedex or the other leaders there. What would you tell them to do? So so the company Fedex is really behind the eight ball I think Fedex needs to sell to another player. I would argue. Are you the best or most likely candidate is Walmart. Who would then be like Amazon vertical automatic control the front end and control back in so my advice so I have to say hey Scott? I'm hearing you talk about this. And you obviously know this industry very well My big thought on this is With all of this movement to online shopping shopping and all this movement to delivering everything that we used to go out and buy. There's just so much more packaging are they thinking as much about reducing that amount of waste aced As they are about how to deliver things faster you know. That's a great question. I don't know if it's getting the attention of warrants. We've heard about a lot of you know plans for innovation and different types of packaging different types of materials. So I'd like to think they're thinking about this but the reality is that the music doesn't match the words yet. There's a lot more hype. There's a lot more words in their actual activity or action. That's got Galloway Professor of marketing at The New York University Stern School of business. Thanks for joining us.

That's profitable but like not that profit. You're not you'll do the business. But you're not thrilled about it. And the prophet pig for Fedex. Fedex is e Commerce e commerce is something that Fedex historically. Wasn't that interested in fact when it officially broke up with Amazon last year Fedex. I was only delivering one. Point three percent of Amazon's packages to effectively deliver for like Walmart or target or like a Non Amazon E. Commerce. They need a better the ground game over at Fedex. Fedex is reluctantly GONNA keep doing e commerce and it's GonNa work with Walmart and target but it needs more trucks more facilities more than more more weekend shifts. It's even delivering on Sunday year round. All that is costly and that's why this is their prophet pig. They're not week as much profit at it. So Jack what's the takeaway for our buddies over. Fedex is shipping industry is growing but shipping is getting commodity online. Shoppers are spoiled. We expect packages to be livered overnight. Hip for free with no extra shipping and handling. I lost my headphones. Why aren't they here with me right now because I just ordered them I haven't heard the words shipping and handling since an infomercial from the ninety third? I think that was the life alert. The rotisserie showtime grill with at the Amish Campfire site so Amazon gives you shipping. They'll pay hey you two ship something. And they're also delivering half of their packages themselves. Fed ex is fighting in the mud. Too though and investors are depressed. They dropped the stock ten percent percent yesterday.

Hbo Apparently Watchmen not the game of thrones proved to be HBO show of the decade and I have to go back and review. And See if I've watched watchmen at all I'm doing right now. started season one of the expanse. I'm progressing through because I couldn't remember my in my Amazon prime account didn't remember where I left off. I'm in the season two if you episodes in now so probably binge-watch that throughout the holidays and see it all the way through four. But maybe I'll go back and I do have an HBO Plus or whatever accounts are probably going to watch the watchman as well maybe started season one in and go through that thing of watch a little bit of watching them and maybe not the two main away some stuff to watch over the holidays here apple news a strike to deal with the ABC to be able to provide election coverage to the apple news APP so ABC News provide live blue coverage of that. Coming Twenty twenty presidential election feature primary in general debates so Just what I don't need to watch T. MOBILE'S I five g phones or a stepping stone to the real bang in this article by the verge talks about how basically t mobile has really kinda hedged on their spectrum. And there's an image on this article that's perfect. It talks about dense urban and it talks about mid band metro and low ban nationwide so basically when they're in dense urban and they can do five G.. Really well they're going to then mid Ban Metros can be going to kind of be like Lt is today and then low ban nationwide's a little bit slower but has a much bigger density in other words it can. It can get places that signals can't otherwise based on the frequency so as they build this out of course what they want to see see is that the cake could can become complete but right. Now it's real narrow on the five G. Sign and mid band METRA's little bit smaller so ultimately you WanNa see all these the equal the it'll take many years for that to happen by think. T. Mobile's got a really good strategy here. So for those of you that are thinking about a service. You're thinking about switching. I think T. Mobile's got the right game plan. We'll see what happens here over time With that game plan but He and I can't complain on the T.. Mobile might buy that. Have that reminds. I need to think Anita cancel that now think I'm good most of the places I'm going now. I'm on wiped by very rarely. Do I need to other anymore. There's a controversial sale of a dot org.

I can so I can't as asking questions about the new owner and we'll have thirty days to make a decision they can't they they're kind of limited in what they can do. But basically the dot org demane is managed by the Public Internet registry which is a subsidary of the Internet Society which is a nonprofit the Internet society is trying to sell pr to a private equity firm arm called Ethnos capital. And of course I can is worried that because they have released the restrictions on dot. Org pricing that. This new firm will come in and raise the price. Well Uh of course. That's what they're gonNA do. So all these prophets in a nonprofits uses the DOT. Org will probably facing more expensive demane renewables in the the picture the DOT org domain continues to be one of the cheapest ones out there'd be able to buy but most people don't so We'll see if the icon allows us to go through Boeing announced that they're going to halt production that troubled seven thirty seven master-plan in January.

Google told his Turkish business partners of will not be able to work with them on new android phones released in Turkey after the Turkeys Competition. Board rule changes Google made on it to to its contracts. Were not acceptable. So basic there in a big antitrust up there Turkey wants basically people have the easy ability to switch switch off Google search engine and variety of other things they want this to be easy for people using android in Turkey and basically. It's gotten to the point where Google said well. Hey any new phones coming out. We we can't help you We can't license android. Ta Because of this dispute. So Google is playing a little hardball all here and of course turkeys playing hardball. Same time so again. We'll see how this goes. What balls out here but Can you imagine trying to bring a new phone to market not having in an operating system port. Because you're countries basically said hey we don't think you're being fair So be careful what you wish for. JBL says his polar polar JBL says it solar powered ahead bones deliver on limited listening. It's crown funding. Hanging effort called the reflect eternal and so GB L. is not betting their own business on this betting. Your money on this in this crowdfunding operation to try to be able to again fraud fund these phones and of course I would even admit that wireless headphones are pain. 'cause we're always charging urging them and But they WANNA have these little bit of solar panels on them so the charge and what are they going to price them at the calm the JBL reflect eternal self charging whereas headphones. Oh and by the way it still will have a headphone Jack in it and it will era power Ainhoa a charging Jack and ninety nine dollars.

A thirty eight inch curved led screen and. I bet that baby's GONNA be beautiful video of it. This video cannot be served sap to go to twitter. Look at it but Anyway if you love escalade to get a big monitoring your car soon visa is warning all drivers. They go to the gas station to put your credit card in if you don't have a chip reader so a lot of gas stations in United States have chip readers. Now you put your card in it holds it reads. The chip proves it. You don't just do the sticking poll anymore. And they're warning about a malware exploited exploited gas stations across the nation and So these are really affecting the old style card readers and Basically visas told all gas stations. You need to be done and flipped a card readers by October twenty. Twenty if you're not you're going to be liable for for fraud. So they're just saying basically observed that the payment system sports a chip and pin compatible cards safety us. And if you notice a merchant it using outdated payment system you must encourage them to upgrade. I wonder if this just bees are being visa and saying hey the upgraded chip readers putting out a little bit of misinformation. They don't talk about the exact type of attack that's happening but again they're warning about a malware exploit what we've known that there's there's been issues at gas stations for years where people have put faults readers on gas station pumps is nothing new there so not surprised but it they didn't give me some specific specifics Mercedes delayed the US launch of its all aw electric SUV until two thousand twenty one and they say they're going to focus on the growing demand in Europe. I here's the problem that we're seeing with these electric cars. Just not enough charging stations. Lots of people are getting cars but not enough commercial charging station. Instagram is now hiding faults. Content behind warnings except for politicians.

Apple's appealed to block the resolution this months so if shareholder votes in favour of the motion apple may have to explain his future responses on demands from government set limit free speech apple will also have to disclose how arms policies on those specific issues so the shareholders basically voting on emotion. That will mean that. If it is approved apple has to have policies around free expression and that those will be available to shareholders. The company will need to report these. These policies and the decision said is made the falls under them. So we'll see how we'll see if the stockholders do in a shareholders are worried about the bottom line. They're not so worried about these types of social issues. Some my prediction is that apple. Shareholders will vote this down. That's my prediction that the shareholders are going to not require apple to do this because what it could do is these policies could force apple to change the business and change range.

Lincoln uses their knowledge of people soft skills and hard skills to match your job listing to the most relevant qualified fight candidates to get fifty dollars off your first job post go to lincoln dot com slash. The journal terms and conditions apply fedex fedex announced last week that it will no longer be shipping packages for amazon. It's a decision that will lose fedex. Almost a billion dollars in revenue <music> fedex is business is shipping boxes and almost no single company generates more boxes to ship than amazon today on on the show. Why would fedex cut ties with a company that would seem to be. It's perfect customer. Welcome to the journal <unk> our show about money business power. I'm ryan kanoute. Send an i'm kate linebaugh. It's monday august twelfth. The relationship between fedex in amazon started to deteriorate after one dramatic christmas. Let's let's go back to december twenty thirteen. It's christmas and it's a year were ecommerce is growing taking share for malls. It's on fire palsy. Albro covers the shipping industry for the wall street journal. We're getting down to the last few days before christmas. Everybody's sitting at home and they are buying presents presents for their kids. Their relatives and they're expecting it to arrive before christmas but what's happening behind. The scenes is u._p._s. Fedex are getting crushed. There are just millions of packages that are being dropped into their network. Not only from from amazon dick's sporting goods macy's kohl's l.l bean. I mean just any retallack you can think of the network was being completely overwhelmed and millions of people a little bit get their packages before christmas. Christmas was ruined for a lot of people christmas. Cheer turned into christmas jeers today after a lot of disappointed online shoppers were without out there gifts on christmas morning. I waited around for hours and hours for it to show up and it never did. It's terribly disappointing because we ordered these things on december first. I was really excited. I couldn't wait to see your face and it didn't happen so i was disappointed and the carriers had to issue refunds john's and sort of amazon amazon akitas well but amazon did something about it. They really got serious about wondering thing. You know what do we have to do to make sure it doesn't happen down the road and they decided that they were going to look into building their own shipping network that strikes me as an extraordinarily ambitious. Che's response to something that all of retail had to deal with but here's amazon deciding. We're gonna actually build our own logistics company right but amazon is known for big ambitious. Che's ideas and really disrupting industries and they certainly have the capital to pursue this sort of bold idea. I don't think it would be hyperbole to say that they're one of the most i feared companies. Incorp america dina mattioli covers amazon for the wall street. Journal amazon's not content to partner with other companies when they think that they could do these things better themselves. They're studying different companies and industries that they can get involved in and if there's an ability to bring efficiencies or to execute under better level they probably will amazon's done a good job at looking inwardly and saying well if we need this type of service. Maybe our customers need it to amazon has used this playbook many times. When it sees an opportunity in another industry it's studies that industry carefully and then pounces so a prime example example of that is cloud computing amazon started growing beyond book selling and they started adding lots of other categories and they needed data and computer pewter bandwidth to help serve those customers so they created cloud computing and then at some point. They said you know what if we need this to run back operations. Any number of companies in the world world probably need it to and that's now the cash cow of the business. I think a lot of people still describe. Amazon is one of the world's biggest retailers but there's so much more the not these days. They are a massive hollywood studio. They're one of the biggest advertising companies in the world. They make their own electronics. They make kindle and alexa which are wildly popular. They're getting into healthcare. They're getting into health insurance and with whole foods and their amazon goes stores. They're also getting into grocery so there's really you know industry that they don't have their tentacles in some fashion in how do companies react when they start to pick up. The scent amazon might be looking into their neighborhood with panic. I think i know this from my prior job covering mergers and acquisitions that you'd be hard pressed to find a single boardroom in america where amazon's not regularly brought up up and people are trying to make themselves amazon proof but when amazon decided to get its tentacles into the shipping business. Fedex's ceo didn't react with panic antic at all here. He is in a fox business interview. Amazon is now a big customer for you time. They're trying to get their own trucks. Their customers twelve competitor the fact that amazon had lots of trucks and things like that is smart from them. Not a threat to us sex would always face the question of what are you gonna do about amazon as a competitor amazon's growing. It's living in our county feel about that. Is that a risk for guys and fedex stance in the words of their c._e._o. And founder fred smith was that amazon being a competitor was quote fantastical. He didn't believe that amazon would build out a network network to rival its own and there was a reason fedex was doubtful. When it comes to logistics. You can't just bill the network to deliver packages any given week. You have to weigh over build your capacity. There's a phrase this isn't logistics industry that you build a church for easter and what that means is that every sunday your church. It may not be packed but on easter. It'll be packed and it'll be overflowed. Amazon needed to build its church. They needed to have its church. That can handle there overflow. Their big peaks in volume around christmas around prime day. Despite this enormous barrier to entry amazon got to work doc building. It's church anyway in just a few years. It's built up a massive logistics apparatus including hundreds of warehouses tens of thousands of trucks and dozens of airplanes over the last few years you start seeing amazon trucks on the road more often so in two thousand fifteen amazon started prime now which is basically one hour delivery and some metro markets later on that year. They started leasing airplanes. They also started looking for people who on small businesses though basically be amazon's delivery partners. I you could start your own business. Hire workers renison vans and you basically have replicated the model that fedex uses in his ground business two years ago twenty. Two percent of packages were delivered by themselves today. Forty five percent of packages are delivered by amazon so almost half of amazon's packages these are delivered by amazon itself and if doubled that in just two years yeah amazon now has around fifty cargo planes now that's still pales in comparison to fedex is around seven hundred planes but for only a few years of work for amazon. It's not bad what u._p._s. has built out over a century korea and fedex has honed over forty years amazon have done no matter of years and all of this would have been fine for fedex. Maybe if amazon was building the network to ship only its own packages but last year amazon declared that shipping other people's packages would be a new line of business third party's people and businesses who sell on amazon can now ship through amazon too and that cuts directly into fedex is business say you're a a sneaker retailer and you're selling shoes on amazon the way an ebay seller might sell on ebay you would sell the shoes an amazon truck would come pick it up from you and they would put in their network the way they would amazon packages and get it to the end user so fedex was just kind of you know what the heck were worshipping your packages. It is but you're also building this business to compete with fedex any business who wakes up one day and sees a customer turning into competitor as the the right to reevaluate their relationship so last week fedex re evaluated and decided to cut ties with amazon and they could afford award to do that. The nine hundred million dollars amazon pays fedex to deliver packages. It's actually only about one percent of fedex is total revenue and there were risks to staying with amazon if fedex were to stay with amazon so amazon becomes not one percent of its revenue but five percent or ten percent then it's really hard to split ways and that's the situation one fedex is biggest competitors finds itself in right now u._p._s. in a really different different position with amazon amount of revenue that u._p._s. Guests from amazon is much closer to ten percent than than fedex so certainly couldn't cut ties with the retailer like fedex. Did the amazon grew so big that they could bring a lot of those packages into its own network ups be left with a huge revenue whole you can't really lose that to give give a customer and not feel immediate pain. That was one reason that fedex proactively cut ties with amazon even though it was still getting business shipping amazon packages fedex figured if amazon really has these ambitious to grow their delivery business. They're gonna leave us no matter what so. Why should we be helping them in these last few years of then giving us. This revenue is basically saying. You're not gonna fire me. I quit we'll figure out under our own terms rather than having our hands before when amazon says we don't need you anymore. It is a risk. I mean it's like the biggest ground beef supplier in the world and not at selling hamburgers to mcdonald's so obviously fedex is taking a risk by cutting ties with amazon but it's a risk that fedex thinks could pay off big time fedex is planned to go up against amazon and make itself a lot of money in the process.

"He's judged at junior achievement competitions. And then connected to save kids. And like, I said the golf tournament appearance and other things he's just he's very connected to our leadership into our brand the importance of branding is something Hamlin has learned about perhaps the most with FedEx is the simplest things, you think that it's, you know, who cares shouldn't matter. Right. We get calls all the time that hey, you gotta run that bias in. It's like, oh, well, that's just something simple. Like, I wouldn't even think twice about. But the brand to them is so serious in the sense of that day, protect that that label in that brain that means a lot to them and the integrity of that brand that they're gonna protect it at all cost. Just the simplest thing of the stitching on a hat. You wouldn't believe how many proofs we go through on hats that just will have a threat or to not right? And it's gotta go back this year. I get a new suit, and I'm so happy. I'm so happy I've had to wear the same suit that actually has been discontinued for many many years. But when we found out they're going to discontinue this material we bought it all up. Because we knew that. Hey, we have to we had to get this because the FedEx logo looked right. The color was right on that particular type of cloth. We finally found a new suit manufacturer that got the die. Right. Got the the coloring. Right. Because that's how important it is that when federal logo is shown it's got to be on the right backdrop with the right? Everything has got to be perfect. The perfect ending for Hamlin who will turn thirty nine in November staying with FedEx for the entirety of his career, so fourteen seasons. How many more do you think you can be a FedEx driver? Yeah. I'd I'd like to do one more contract beyond beyond. What I have what I have is long-term. We're not even really in the middle of that yet. So I would like to be here. I'd like to I mean, it's so rare we thought Jimmy would finish with lows. Right. And and I think that there's something to be said about that to have someone that is with you from the start to the finish. Obviously tell about dollars and cents right? And whether you can make. Things work. But obviously, I'm with the company I believe in the hope hopefully believes in me through the course of my career. And I like to go of at least, you know, forty three ish you've been to Memphis. Over the years. You know, you've had in FedEx on your car for nearly fifteen years in met with team members all over the country. What what is the support of this company specifically with nearly half a million employees around the world that you represent everyday? Well, I'll tell you a lot to me every time I come to Memphis. It's it's special. But you know, every time I come it always see a handful of people with the Senate racing hat or something now autograph from being here before. So it means a lot to have everyone here's support because ultimately out there all the track on Sunday. We're out there, representing you. And in what you do for FedEx. And so that's something that we don't take lightly, and we we definitely hold that FedEx purple promised Brown..

"The Bloomberg market minute on seven hundred wwl Joris starring Patrice Akhara. Yes. Mike McConnell Francis. City great. We're expecting earnings, and they are in and what happened well their fourth quarter earnings topped estimates. However, it's the revenue that missed it was on weaker-than-expected bond trading. This is called fixed income and revenue fell. Twenty one percent to the lowest in seven years after the market's wild markets just kept a log clients on the sidelines combined revenue from stock and bond underwriting, also dropped more than expected and the company missed a full year profitability target by a wider margin than it warned of five weeks ago. But even so CitiGroup shares are only down about one point four percent. They had been down more than two earlier. All right. Some pretty funny happen their coordinate court yesterday. Storm. Yeah. She's telling the world. She went dancing, a good time knees. Hurt today. Good times. All right. Elsewhere our friends at FedEx gonna start delivering and perhaps installing things. Yeah. Now, you're next washing machine your sofa. It could be a FedEx tractor pulls up. They're calling the service FedEx freight top FedEx freight to direct, and they will deliver these things to your home as well as assemble them. They hadn't been doing this before it's a nine billion dollar market. A lot of the the regular delivery trucks, even the retailers had done this. They said they didn't do it before this because large items didn't fit well in their package sorting operations. So they might pick something up at a furniture store five miles from my house. Bring it to a house and carry it in as opposed to that. Furniture store having its own delivery people. Right. Exactly. So it could be that the furniture store, then finally says we'll just get a deal contract with FedEx, we don't have to hire these people. We don't have to keep these people on staff. Yeah. So that same guy goes and works for FedEx, he could possibly he could let's could get the same benefits you get better. Who knows the nine billion dollar market? That's a lot. All right, women shoppers. Not the only ones hunting for deals. Yes. Men like to shop for deals to and they're now more likely than women to check prices on Amazon before deciding if they're gonna make a by this is a study from first insight and finds more than two thirds of male respondents said they comparison shop on the online retailer that's up fifteen percentage points from just last year. Part of the reason could be male shoppers have more options and clothing these days and retailers are getting better at advertising to them saying you guys you like this come on.
