Could We Delete Our Memories One Day?
"So a new movie debuted on. Hbo max earlier. This month from the creators of westworld and starring hugh jackman called reminiscence. It's about a world where scientists have created a way of relieving your memories and recovering lost. Ones it's been getting pretty bad reviews. And frankly i keep forgetting to check it out but it does have a very intriguing premise. In what if we could relive memories. What have we could change them or heck. What if we could delete memories altogether. I definitely have some that. I wish i could forget. In a recent installment of their gizeh asks series. Gizmodo spoke to a panel of researchers about whether such thing would ever actually be possible. Samuel shocker professor emeritus of neuroscience at columbia university says that the principal is kind of there but in practice it's more complicated quote the evidence from neuroscience right now suggests that a given memory is very sparsely encoded. What that means is that our cerebral cortex where most of these memories are stored has about fifteen billion nerve cells at a particular memory involve a change in activity of only a couple hundred of them. Finding those few hundred cells is very very complicated and quote. He points to a number of ongoing studies however that show what we're currently capable of in one. Scientists are able to identify a group of cells participating in one of a mouse as memories and then manipulate them enough to prove that the mouse forgot the memory. But shocker says doing that on a human scale to the sophisticated level. Most people think of when talking about deleting memories is probably not possible but in terms of similar therapies for trauma quote. A memory has four basic phases. It's initiated then consolidated then stored and then recalled in both animals like mice and monkeys and in humans. each of these phases have been shown to share a certain mechanism. Scientists are now focusing on those shared mechanisms to see if maladaptive memories can lose their anxiety provoking aura. You don't forget that you got mugged in front of a mailbox instead. The mailbox stops meaning what it used to mean. The memory is still there but it's emotional. Context has been

Shima Baradaran Baughman of the University of Utah on the Police Myth
"The movement for black lives as forces societal reckoning about the relationship between police and disaffected communities and has given tracks into removing police funding nationwide. The literature is focused on critiquing the mistrust of police among communities of color due to abuse and marginalization with remedies including police training to encourage treating people with dignity policing literature fails to fully address a core 'cause police mistrust for people of color in the poor to address. The symptoms of policing failure requires consideration of the purpose of function police. Indeed a core problem is a misunderstanding of policing. That i call the police. The police myth is a twofold belief that our primary function of police crime control and that police all crimes. Regularity reliance on the police. Smith may provide societal comfort but as made it difficult to address basic policing failure without understanding. What police actually do and their relationship with crime is impossible to reimagine policing the police crime in large part contribute to the distrust between police and community color creating a cycle where people refused to report to police and police fail to solve crimes. American policing costs hundred fifteen billion per year. It is worth evaluating. This number in terms of the public service received as solving serious crimes only constitutes a tiny fraction of police function. my research demonstrates that police only solve serious felony crimes about twenty percent of the time while the police defunding movement is gaining support. Critics claim that is highly impractical and that reducing policing would increase crime but if police are neither allocating a large portion of their time to addressing crime nor solving most major crimes would defunding police actually increase crime. If this is the moment to consider police reform a meaningful dismantling of the police myth could be part of the solution

"Where we're becoming much more relevant. You know much more known as a platform company not just product company. It's where we have folks that are leaning in in building billion dollar practices with service now. They're elevating us to their top tier of partnerships. And it's because they're seeing the momentum with with our business and that's in the flywheel right it's really productive live will. It's also frankly where we are going much deeper into verticals. Right in verticals are natural complement to a partner go to market because because of how they're organized in so there's a lot of kind of goodness in this kind of force multiplying impact that you can get once you get to this space but as you know as as you can probably tell it it takes a while in. I think there's you know. Watch out along the way right like you need to make sure that you set the vision for what this can look like in the future. You're not alienated partners. Along the way you're not you're creating collaborative relationships from the beginning because you know especially for a direct sales team you can definitely create a lone wolf kind of culture here when really the magic is unlocked when you have when you have folks to market as a team and how the of vision of what this is n. a. b. And he lied those kind of visionary believers that continue to pound the table and an us on on drumbeat of what. This actually is any no along. The way partners are just rational right there just rational businesses making rational decisions about how to like anybody. Allocate scarce resources right but where they're going to where they're going to place their bets at ultimately it's about where the dollars and the growth of the dollars are for them and that takes time that takes momentum that takes real winds takes you know I think conscious storytelling to get there. But i think the takeaway from this whole thing for me is that while the journey. It's kind of hard. it's absolutely worth. It pays massive dividends if you can get to the point this visual because it does paint it as journey and it has phases to it and i think at last point you made about through that journey making sure that you're sticking with it for that long vision of of what's ahead. I think is a critically important one as all of these companies asking other growth so love that visual by the way this visual ideas the so many times in my i this that she started off might use this because it marked so many different transition points for a fast company for software company. Like for us you can. Even you can even help our ceo to these different traces of vision. Different kinds of ceos are well-positioned for different types of phases in And i think it's so many different lessons. You can take away from this so we could probably have like a whole conversation. Just unpacking this allowing. But let's stick with the partners today. Well you know. I think that of who used to be our chief strategy officer. Now you're our chief customer and partner officer that was very explicit title choice but it's actually also one that's very unique in the industry. I don't see a lot of companies have it. What was the why behind that title. Yeah it isn't unique title and we were really purposeful in in kind of choosing in crafting our designed this way so for those of you. Who know service now. We dave schneider was our chief revenue officer and president and he owned kind of everything related to go to market and he he took the company public scale the go to market engine kind of created everything we that we have and then when he decided to retire we really looked at all of the pieces. Have how can we create an org structure. That really does alternately. Bring value chain closer together all in service of the customer. And that's really what we're what we're trying to do. The mission of my organization. Is that our customer. Success is our success in with that in our partner. Success is our success. And i think that's a philosophy frankly that's applicable to every fast company at every phase of bro. You know we are ultimately services getting our customers to achieve their goals through purchasing. Our technology in our partners are absolutely critical to doing that. And so to me. It's creating setup. that's a win win win a win. Ultimately that's that's foundationally built around the customer getting the customer value getting the customer to success which creates value for our partners but also obviously creates value for us and so our organization has several groups. It's got our partner ecosystem alliances organization. It's got our training certification organization. Which does all of our external customer and partner training. It's got a professional services organization customer success in customer experience. And i think all of those teams are really inextricably linked in terms of making sure that we are aligned to that ultimate vision that i talked about in terms of getting our customers to value in getting our customers success and i think that purposefully structuring in relation if earth in fast company that is ultimately aligned that value and by the way i view myself as a champion of the customer experience across the company. Because there's no way of partner and post sales organization can achieve that. It absolutely takes everybody right up. Product a customer focused product mindset or go to market teams have to be aligned to that and even all of our gna teens have to be have to be aligned to that vision. And so that that i think is also part of my. My role in this function is to sort of be that evangelists in and drive cross functional alignment around there as well and you know what i hear from customers. Customers ultimately went from us in probably similar to you guys here right. It's like help me get help me get to value how we realize the value not like in my in my language in the business terms that i care about that a relevant you. My industry help meet You guys have lots of customers. Tell me how to get there what you tell me. What best practices. Don't let me try to figure this out. For the first time. I want the guidance. I expect the guidance to come from you. You show me what great looks like and then partner seamlessly to get there. I don't want to have a meeting with you telling me one thing in a meeting with a partner telling me something. I want us to all get in a room together. Were all in the same boat. We're all rowing in unison. Towards automatically this because no one has time to mess around with that right and so let's not worry about organizational boundaries. Let's not worry about who's paycheck. You know who gets their paycheck from whom. Let's all be in on the same team in that i think ultimately is what my organization is designed to do. I love that. I'm sure up together. Message because i think that's that's where a lot of power in partners is right when when you as a company Partners are showing up so seamlessly together. I think that's amazing. The title of this talk. Was you know a partners on our past fifteen billion. I actually saw one of the questions in the chat about which partners are important when so tell us a little bit about are important on that path and what the strategy is for for which win. Yeah so yeah we. We had a pack of ten billion dollars that we had sort of been publicly talking about for awhile and we just had our analysts. Say in and bill for this region about bill mcdermott. He is constantly raising the bar and creating forcing it to look not just set the next rising but at two horizons kind of out and so our public goal is now fifteen billion in and so you know and we're well on our way there. An absolutely partners are key to this. So let me let me talk about like why partners.

And i get an amen on that. Yes know i we we started with. Flo where you know was kind of you know the idea of decentralize all the things and and you know. It is important to build these. These resilient unstoppable systems But at another aspect of of what we're doing is that You know it's the communication side. We realize that not everything you know needs to be a live forever and beyond fully worldwide tributed system basically so or blockchain. So on you know there. Do we not put a picture of a picture of our doj dog who's who's right near We don't need these these places to be around but we want to give users the iraq with these these different systems like fast or or different blockchain's So that they can.

You know alternative solutions sites and you know in resilience your best though on. That's we're headed. It's taken us a little bit longer to get to get there is mentioned some of these Struggled with fundraising the beginning. And all this but now we've We you know we could. This cross section of crypto currency entering the market. And into this more and more people waking up to the back of what's going on with With vic censorship and getting waking up. Okay so i got. I got to ask the question you know when you have. We start because this is why. I don't do a lot of these. Social media's. I'm not investing time because i'm an old guy i've been doing this. You know radio health for seventeen years. I've been freedoms phoenix and so five. Know just before to wordpress the hell's that we. Php everything rusted on the software the bootstrap of the biblical back in the day. All kinds of crap. So i'm going you know Every time we go on and censored and it's gone and it's brought out and it's merged into facebook google. Whatever you're going to do it and after doing this a long time and been thirty some years in this space. i know it's common kingsley. So i'm going all right. Is there a way mechanism by which you are saving the profiles. That is not delete. -able are you. I don't care. How many parallel versions of the net and who you work with and interface while give a crap but one of them one of them needs to be that this material is available and can't be deleted. Suasion my concerns gangly. Yes in so. That's that's what we're doing but there's basically there's different strategies on on how to accomplish that doesn't need to be. Ip best doesn't need to be some sort of blocked team and the answer is really is no But it is good to have those options available as as well. You know we believe that you know you. Can you can basically be a very resilient by a by working with the the right server groups and having you know. A data backups across multiple different providers in including ourselves. So there's this. Yeah this is the difference out of of Accomplish it a right way but But again we you know. We are looking to interface with our best and and even library app and and in other blockchain's and giving our users that ability to back up her care how many fifteen billion ways you do it as long as one of them. They can't take down they can't somebody tells me our policy when we're tomah freaking barf in their face you know. I don't give a shit. What your politics i seen. I'll give a crap about your policy. Is you know it's the capability because if you can they're gonna show you a forty five says you better. I guarantee you especially as we go into the future especially especially now when you were in miami was the mindset there you know what were the people thinking what were you. Did you even mention this or people start to come up with other solutions. Because they were and we'll get into this and the after show would and it'd be worth listening to that because eruption time on this because you had the some bitcoin where the hell it was and then the coin or whatever the hell that was.

Got his numbers one. He talked about the fourteen billion announced and it was one point four but it isn't Yes and once again. Ten percent of As promised the the thing that caught my eye was that some of the tuition was one to one and then two. So perhaps you addressed with this is supposed. Is it important issue. Does it work to start. Rattling are all those figures because we went from fifty pounds to hundred and ten pounds per child. Then you look at. What joe biden is planning on america's sixteen hundred pounds per child overseas distinction. Between how much is going on tuition. And how much is going on the boy. The package of uptake.

Sooner we've talked about this before back labor party every so often sort of dabbles with going off the charts and he remains hugely popular. Yeah that's right.

And there's a part of star that just one does it the back of his mind whether he might be up against does she see neck. At the next general election. I think most conservatives.

It doesn't seem on a great deal of good sofa. Ll it's interesting. That case saying educations labour's number one priority.

I mean it wasn't that long ago. We're being briefed by downing street. This was a top priority. In the thing he was most concerned about in the wash up from corona virus so it does seem like delivering one tenth of what was asked for his poor but at the same time. It's fifteen billion is a heck of an ask from an external adviser you. You'd have to think as the government if you pick that external as you may have picked the wrong one for fifteen billion quid. Not a few ministers in this government. Say well he spills his name kevin and if and we've got this chap who can't even spell his name properly which which dow seems like a little bit of a harsh thing to say but that's that's how he didn't quite read the room.

Two thousand five hundred pounds so can the prime strict splaine when he was told by his expert that he appointed that only ambitious fully-funded up plan would do only an ambitious fully-funded catchup lead.

Four is an incredibly important thing to get. Right isn't it. yeah absolutely. I mean it's just extraordinary. Imagine what it must be like to be at school and to just lost huge chunks out the chunks out the school year. I've never read about this kind of residual school child the kind of things how incredibly fun. It must be true loss lower school. But i know that's a very irresponsible opinion. I mean yeah it just sounds like this doesn't sound like nearly enough when you consider that the united states i think is putting is one thousand six hundred pounds per pupil into that kind of catch up program and we've got about fifty pounds at fifty pounds per people per year. It's just it just really extraordinary. I mean i know people are saying that. Perhaps boris johnson is waiting for gavin williamson to be moved on than his successor. Will you. we'll get the extra money just seems like a very edano arbitrary way to miss out his actions to happen as soon as possible. Seems kind of strange way to plan. A list and india bush did say that education and and the catcher and leveling up. These are some of his top priorities. Not like something way down at the bottom of his manifesto yes. It's a really strange thing because the the red wall hours which Which they which the tories one at last election of particularly affected there are a lot of the disproportionate number disadvantage people citing when he kind of understand singing behind tool and they understand why it's happened but also there's an engine question about money isn't there because actually fifteen billion is a is a hell of a lot of money. The government is said. Okay one point. Four is the best we can do. We've also been hearing about the foreign aid. Budget cuts late. We're going to hear about the colts. And how they need cash. It's hard to see what exactly is is a vote and actually interview. What we're talking to. At least an idea about james in terms of the foreign aid budget is that the is the most palatable thing to chop in the minds. Of voters like education's very close to home has a easily defined return on investment barashi. Foreign aid is of many voters actually educated by that curt. Yeah i mean. That's probably the unfortunate thing about it isn't the educate nothing can be close to him in education because almost everybody will know advocates. Who's being educated or know someone and that's just that's impossible voyage but the holiday of foreign aid and a lot of people is just very unpleasant not always just makes it this very unfortunately. It's always very subjects. These kinds of these cuts. There'd be interesting to see if there is this kind of tory rebellion. They're talking about that. Might occur and might save that an now. You sorry indigo i was saying. It's very interesting about foreign aid because the public always things for why we know we need the money. Why are we sending it to that. And i think it's it's i think it's really morally necessary but it's important that the foreign aid budget is not cut. But it's a very kind of you. Need a very authoritative You need the government to be thirty two to just say this is mark for that. And we're not touching it because the moment use the death penalty you know the moment you start asking people now that rid of it. They can look after their own people at cetera et cetera so it needs to be really enshrined. Nothing foreign aid because the outage just pulling to me. The idea of for nate. Call awful. But i mean the situation thing of course is just as awful and since there have been end of billions of being from all over the place for everything else. I really don't see why shouldn't be the absolutely most priority and you can imagine. Parents getting furious about the kids at school. Age of one school aged. Interestingly she's loved all of this statement of educational special needs and so for her going to school online most the non. She's being physically at school betas while but initially being at school visit your nine was incredibly calming it took away layers and layers of pressure so she liked it and then back and sort of wish that she could still do nine because there's so much to negotiate but it's not just the work it's the people in the south and the vibe and the teachers and the talking and the fitting in and the so so she's had a nice time but nevertheless i think this is my daughter's nice time i think government needs to do but better you've been interestingly musing on the value of education in the thompson in your comment pace. Lay out your argument for us. Because it's i have a lot of sympathy with it. Yes so this is actually one of my top sessions. Actually is the over valuing of academic intelligence society. I've been thinking about a lot but my my basic thesis was that we've kind of academic intelligence which is one human value among many many ways to be intelligent. There are many other skills beyond intelligence to have that are important in work at in life but for some reason academic intelligence is assumed this enormous status in our society. The extent i think for a lot of people consciously or subconsciously your academic ability is almost a kind of final statement of your values. You human being so. I mean so many jobs that once would never quite degrees now require degrees. I mean it's amazing to remember the things like banking and i mean obviously journalists. A degree was by no means an assessment of those jobs. Thirty forty years ago And they're just these amazing little cultural factors sort of looking up so for example the new york times when they published their marriage list once upon a time there were sort of people would publish family pedigrees when they made the new york times now. They do their degrees post graduate degrees. Because i think it's the for very wealthy upper middle class people education all consuming part of your identity. And i just think that's completely wrong. And academic antigens important is very useful for some things but we just go to completely out of proportion india expand on your high so much on practically levitating with agreement. It's just it's a complete nonsense. I mean academic intelligence is great and he good and it's like being good sport so good it's it's a thing that ought to occupy space of its own. It doesn't prepare you in any way for being either a decent human being or person who is able to function as they go through life. It's no indicator of anything tool often. It's an indicator particularly with these social. Pretend you rubbish. Degrees from pretend rubbish universities that ever denouncing thicky acquiring the. I've nothing to anything. They didn't even to of getting a good job. I mean that's just nonsense. But the idea that that they defined you and that they define who you are and the you than very often consider yourself club for a than that you know the masses and that you james says in his brilliant condiments subsequent column same says that you know you're you're choir moral superiority and are able to sit in judgement on anybody who doesn't have the same number of degrees here. It's just nonsense. We'll hang on. And i should point out. That james doesn't necessarily practice what he preaches. Because in how you vast expense. He did in their useless master's degree. Yeah i i mean this is actually if you want any proof that intelligent education intelligence. I wanna tell. Dentists do to separate english literature degrees Which is what i did. And my master's me was quite disillusioning experience. So so fixated on their idea of there..

Well we do i. I don't really. I'm not going to cover this too much i to me. This week has been interesting because these parts of the year where we just to earnings right and that time has passed all of a sudden. The company's doing earnings for some companies. Their fiscal year apparently runs from like may thirteenth. Until the next may twelve i. It's they're all under a little schedule so lenovo. Hp well actually. I don't know if you saw today. For example. zoom announce their earnings zoom earning. Almost two billion dollars in revenue. Wow and One hundred ninety two percent year over year growth. You know so. So it's not slowing down that's interest not yet not yet so that's amazing Lenovo kind of the same deal While the bigger numbers but fifteen point six billion in revenues for the quarter this was entering much for thirty. I actually Net income of two hundred. Sixty million Sixty point one billion for the full fiscal year right so they are the biggest pc maker in the world and they just had their fastest growing quarter in almost a decade. That's like that's what's going on in the world. These days right revenue was up forty. Eight percent year over year Thanks largely to pandemic buying of pc's And i think their pc business. I'm sure it's somewhere Literally la county of whatever is. Yeah well i. I didn't read it up this way. So they had fifteen billion in revenues Twelve of that was from. Pc's so it's like pretty much a pc business Hp very similar the number two player They had to fifteen point. Nine billion in revenues. One point two billion of net earnings Once get their pc business businesses two thirds of their revenues the other One third is the Sorry that's not true. Pc district is Printers And they're big deal was consumer pc's was the big win for them Seventy two percent growth in consumer. Pc's ten percent in commercial pc's forty four percent. unit growth. Sixty three percent of their products are notebooks. Just goes on and on. It's like you know just lots and lots of money there and then He's i don't know. I didn't really i don't cover to too much there. Two computations related announcements. They looked at one was acer. They do this every year. They announced a one hundred and twenty computers. I pulled out a few that i thought were interesting. They sent me one for review and it wasn't even pulled out for the interesting with but um you know swift ex Which is probably the coolest looking one some gaming stuff swift x. Because it has kind of this yeah know what you call that articulated screen on it. Yeah cool yeah. Yeah that's the generic. Yeah yeah they do a lot of business. Class computers warned. Msi and eisuke announced new gaming systems Yeah yeah there's a lot of hot gaming laptops out there. Now i mean i i don't there is an alien to life is too short to write about every single one. Here's how laptops in the world. But it was curious about the whole thing. I don't know if you saw this Intel did two things that were really curious this week one is they typically do these annual pushes for new generations of course and i probably zeon. Cps as well and Normally you would think we would be moving toward the twelfth generation This coming fall because you know eleventh generation was last fall and you know as i kind of fill out the product lineup but what they announced. This tweak was to new a eleven generation core you series. Cpa's ago and ultra books and tablets and just normal laptops right. This is the main this is probably the biggest seller use series and they actually replaced the the two core sorry products in this family. The i seven. And the i five with new versions that are offer better performance and can hit a five gigahertz clock speed in some cases. Right twenty five percent performance improvement over their predecessors which are like six months old you know so they kind of it was kind of an interesting midstream replacement. The other thing they did was released their first. Pc based five g chipset ship on to card. Which is also very interesting. an intel soul. They sell get rid of their five g business when apple. I don't remember apple. Basically signed back on a call calmer. I don't remember exactly what happened there but they used to have a five g business for five g. Motives safar funds but got rid of that a couple of years ago so this is kind of them making another five g push this time for. Pc's and in the m to form factor which is okay. That's cool cope whole complex story. That's all i got. That's it that's the whole deal. Okay let's take a break okay. Paul can go as wallow in his despair. Mary jo can wonder what's going to happen to the guy outside. And you and i talk about Palm i want to chime in on this one audible. Yay we are big audible fans here.

PRI's The World
"fifteen billion" Discussed on PRI's The World
"Or roofs. Former pro basketball player rod benson says mental. Health was not talked about when he competed in the us and south korea. Literally number this. This this is why naomi's blowing up because this is a new conversation a new conversation and he says a unique moment to redefine what greatness in sports is if our old conception is winning the most makes you the greatest. Our new conception should be like winning but winning in all aspects of life. Winning for yourself. I think we'll be the new definition of what green says benson applauds top-ranking osaka for initiating this global conversation for staying true to herself and for hopefully helping other athletes to do the same for the world. I'm being hellier in president. Biden's defense budget. He's got two big priorities. Keeping china at bay and giving us troops arrays to do that the number he's proposing to spend on the pentagon seven hundred fifteen billion dollars next. Stop congress and some heated debate. Michael o'hanlon has been reading through biden's proposed budget and he joins us now from the brookings institution in washington michael seven hundred and fifteen billion dollars. How does it compare with recent pentagon budgets. It's about ten billion dollars. More than twenty twenty one budget one. We're operating off now. Which was essentially trump's last budget and that ten billion is basically enough to keep up with inflation so in the simplest sense of the word this is about as flat of an extrapolation as you're going to get and you mentioned seven hundred fifteen billion which is correct for the department of defense but when you add in other national defense functions most importantly that nuclear weapons activities at the department of energy you could also say it's a seven hundred fifty seven five zero seven five two actually a billion by. So what can you say. Generally about what that money that seven hundred and fifteen billion dollars is going to do. I mean there's a pentagon basically going to stick to current hardware and spending schemes or are there any major pivots to new types of spending. I think the simplest way to answer that is to say that in terms of what we're buying and building. The changes are not dramatic. If you're looking for big change it's going to be still in the future in the research development test and evaluation accounts which are very large more than one hundred billion dollars for innovation essentially but that's targeting future systems. That were not yet buying and deploy so when it comes to that aren budget. What kind of future systems are you imagining or do you actually know things that are in the works. You're talking about everything. from smaller. satellites. That could be Survivable even against direct attack or at least to numerous to bring down and mass. It could be more offensive. Weapons like so-called hyper sonics that travel at the speed of icbm's today but kerry conventional weapons and can be used more tactical settings certainly involves a lot of investment in the cyber world and artificial intelligence to some extent. We're talking about the next generation bomber. The twenty one we're talking about unmanned systems for ground vehicles undersea vehicles Other ships and for aircraft. You know the the innovations really cover the gamut yet thinking about the future. I mean you mentioned taking out tiny satellites in space. I mean that's not something the country could pull off. What country does the pentagon is potentially doing that. Taking a us satellites while. There's no doubt that it's largely focussed on china and russia and in fact some people like my good friend. Michelle flournoy who has written an excellent article in foreign affairs reinforced the importance of continuing to accelerate our innovation. And while i agree with that. I also don't want us to overdo the focus on china and russia and leave out concerns in places like korea or the middle east and i think we need a balanced set of capabilities given that we have fifty or sixty allies around the world most of which are important our security and therefore since they face different thread environments. We want to be with them with a range of tools and capabilities ourselves. It feels like once a month. We hear about some hack coming from china or russia where cyber command in this budget a threat from akers cozy bear factored in. You know that's an excellent question and it may actually be our number one vulnerability that not only the cyber of the department of defence which at least is protected by cyber command but the cyber capabilities that support our national infrastructure which is not owned by the department of defense or often even the government but is essential for military operations because we use the trains and airfields and ports and other parts of our national infrastructure to send military deployments and reinforcements overseas. So i think that it's actually not just cyber command. But i would want to see more emphasis here on a whole of government and whole of private sector strategy for protecting our cyber systems from hostile attack. That piece i believe is missing in this budget. So how does president biden's pentagon budget factor into his foreign policy. Michael do traditional allies. See in what do potential enemy see. I think it's a good budget. Overall because it sustains the real level the inflation adjusted level military spending after trump bill. That was pretty substantial. So i think if we can stay steady in this range that you mentioned earlier seven hundred and fifty billion for national defense seven hundred and fifteen for the pentagon's part. That's pretty good. Especially if we then beef up. The role of the state department and treasury in overall strategies for what secretary austin calls integrated deterrence deterrence that involves especially our economic instruments of national power as well as diplomatic ones. Michael o'hanlon brookings institution in washington. He's the author of the art of war in an age of peace. Michael thank you very much. Thank you kylie. In a country like yemen where years of civil war of devastated. The country is a rare commodity but there was some good news. Great news for some fishermen and their village. These yemeni fishermen recently struck gold inside of a dead whale. The whales corpse contained amber ambiguities colloquially. We're talking whale vomit. Which is rare and valuable. The fishermen managed to sell their catch for one and a half million dollars and reportedly plan on sharing that with their village. So just what is amber grace chris. Campus scientists est ambiguities expert and author floating gold. So help us out here. Chris because people have described as well vomit you. You say it's more like whale poop. What is it it is. It is well pope while it's it's actually a very specialized kind of pathological wail poop. But yes it definitely comes out the same places poop. So it's well poops. I mean mine. It's retrieved from a whale carcass from a sperm whale carcass. What does it look like. What does it smell like. Well it's going to be so this is sort of another aspect of the life of emigres. Typically i'm agrees needs to be released into the ocean by a dead while sort of decomposing enough to release it and then it needs to float around sort of in the warrants for.

Pepsi's Number Fever
"Victoria. And where nato angelo. Where a couple living in manila in the philippines. They had a pretty hot life. When i worked as a rickshaw driver and the whole family lived in a tin roof shack but they had a dream. Tim hoffa talks about this in his cautionary tales. Podcast and that dream is that they'll win a very unusual lottery. The lottery is called number fever in the lottery. Numbers are printed on the inside of bottle tops on bottles of pepsi. They sat down every night to wash numbers drawn on tv. If the number from your bottle top was drawn in one grand prize you could win a million pesos. That's equivalent to about forty thousand american dollars. That is a lot of money in the philippines in one thousand nine hundred to a life changing amount of money for victoria and anita if they were ever to win it but of course. It's just that one grand prize. What are the chances they would ever win. What was the number. The number was three four nine one evening. They are watching the television and the lottery. Juries held on the number comes up and it's three four nine. They can't believe it. Got forty thousand dollars a million pesos. They the children can go to college. Anita doesn't have to work as a rickshaw driver any more it would be like winning a million dollars in the us. Today but pepsi messed up and eight hundred thousand bottletops printed with the winning number three four nine so for victoria and horta the way i imagine. This is the run out onto the streets to celebrate and everybody else is on the streets and they're celebrating too because they all have the number three four nine on their bottle tops. So they're all going to be millionaires. Yeah well you'd think pepsi was on the hook for at least fifteen billion dollars

"fifteen billion" Discussed on Mindy Diamond on Independence: A Podcast for Financial Advisors Considering Change
"Who or what will be hiring. You know as far as additional services. I mean you know we've got our our cio. I've got a life coach staff. You know that actually talks to clients. Not you know everybody's involved in coaching today. I have a coach. Everybody is a coach firms. Have coaches and she can talk to advisors. That's fine la advisors which she does for us is. She helps the teams. Because what i find is we have great advisers. Great advisors tend to have very dysfunctional teams. And that is definitely not productive and so wonderful responsibilities is to take a dysfunctional team and turn them into a happy cohesive run unit and that's been a major change over the last three years organizationally but we also do. Is you offer those services to clients. We don't charge them. If clients are going through transitions having difficulties with bad retirement. God forbid a death a divorce you know she is available and when you talk the long term goal of the firm. It's to create enduring relationships that are so sticky. You know that these clients would never think about the firm you know in. It's not about rate of return. You know it's not about our fees being ten or twenty basis points higher or lower and so the only way you can do that continue to provide services so bringing on you know legal review services bringing on accounting services. I like to joke with the team that you know. Listen we'll walk. Their dog will be there. Travel agent will do whatever anybody wants done. And whatever is being offered in the marketplace the firm will make an investment to hire those people to do those services and we can and we can do it jerry cheaply because when you have forty advisers at eight billion and you can kind do the math and get an idea of what the revenue could look like when i have eighty advisors at fifteen billion or a hundred advisers at twenty billion. There'll be lots and lots of services will be able to provide for clients that other firms will not be able to provide simply because of the scale. And that's why. I think it's a mistake when it advisor thinks i'm going gonna be my own because i e complete autonomy. Whatever that even means. I'm not even sure. Because i don't want autonomy. What help you know. that's what i want. I need help. So that's sort of the thought and that's what we do. We have a wishlist. You know my brothers cuts always shaking his head in. You know in telling me. I'm crazy but you know have my wishlist and every year. We seem to be able to check off a couple of those boxes. And we're just gonna continue to do that..

"fifteen billion" Discussed on The Peter Schiff Show Podcast
"They would do far more damage to the economy now than they did back then. Of course one of the reasons. The government continues to demand more tax revenue though. I don't know why they could just printed right there. All is now but look at biden administration proposing a seven hundred fifteen billion dollar budget for the defense department for fiscal twenty two. That's a one point. Five percent increase over the prior year now granted adjusted for inflation. I guess that's a slight caught. But why are we spending more money on the military especially when we're broke and especially if you think that the democrats have some type of priority for a domestic agenda right. The date prefer butter to guns. Why are we spending more money on guns. As we're spending more money on border right it shows you. It doesn't really matter. You know how you arrange the deck chairs on this tannock whether you have a republican or democrat at the helm nobody's cutting military spending yes. Donald trump apparently would have increased the budget for fiscal twenty twenty two seven hundred and twenty two billion so slightly more than seven hundred fifteen billion. That biden wants to spend. But that's it that's the difference between the two administrations right the republicans who are supposedly in bed with the defense department. There the warmongers. They wanted to spend seven hundred and twenty two billion but the democrats who don't want to waste money on defense right day care more about a social spending. They only want to spend seven hundred fifteen billion that said seven billion dollars like one percent. That's the only difference between these two extremes that shows you. there's no difference at all. They're just playing us for fools a one more point to that. I wanted to make that. Everybody seems to be ignoring as everybody is celebrating. The reopening of the economy is that beneath the surface. Some of the economies. That reopened are reclosing. Right i live in puerto rico and we just got the news on friday that because of a spike in cova cases. I'm not even sure. How big the spike is. We're going back to a partial lockdown. The schools are now closed so now all the kids have to go back to homeschooling. They'd only been going to school for not even a month right. The schools hadn't been opened for a month and now they're closed down again. Meanwhile the curfew is back. Nobody can be out of their house after ten pm. Island-wide curfew capacity in restaurants back down to fifty percent capacity. The restaurants have to be closed by nine o'clock not sure all the various rules again for the other establishments but again. The economy is locking backed out and of course one of the reasons that puerto rico is so confident that they can get away with this. Because they're getting by government stimulus money if the government was handing out all this money than governors would think twice about ordering these closures. But they know there's no financial consequences because washington and the fed argon provide them with the money and yeah the teachers love this. I mean now. They're back on vacation..

Jim Cramer on Bitcoins Performance and Future
"Our guys bang bang. I have demand himself. He is back jim. what's going on. Man here's what's going on. You made me a ton of money. I had to keep out the experts there. Because when someone's they'd be as much money as you have. What kind of peppered with the authentic language. I did exactly now. I know you probably hear a lot of people say you know what i did what you told. No i went and called my cfo. All right. and. I said listen. I just talked to this guy and i went tomorrow and i said i want hoping to get trouble. I said i want a half million dollars in this and you can buy over a couple of days but i don't want anyone who's this guy was your. Thank you and i studied before it wasn't just like you know i didn't just off the tournaments but said this guy is compelling i even use and i don't know whether you have any but the brokerage you suggested and i mentioned the money because it's never happened to me before i bought a lot of stocks in my life but i wanna thank you. Some the reason i called is it. Can i please come on your and thank you because it happened. It happened just as you said. It also happened much faster than you said. But i'm very grateful. Grateful mike kits so thank you very. Well listen as as many people who watched our first episode together i think noted The most compelling piece of it was how open minded you were and how intellectually curious you are on. I think that is something that people forget is important in the investing world. So i can yell and scream from the rooftop all. I won't but it takes courage and conviction for you to do something about it. So it doesn't work invoked by the way i mean you can say well i'm sucking up sucking and just a tremendous respect. A lot of what you said to me. I of course told others and is there things that you would say. I mean i always do the door. So limited number. I always knew that there should be protection. And i regard it as an asset class. But i i have for years said that you should have go and i think what i had going for me was the recognition. That what you're saying is what i really searching for with gold. All but gold media goal is that is subject to many vicissitudes is subject to a mining issues. It's frankly are subject to fail in many cases. Where do you think that's what's going to happen. Do you think that people are gonna drop gold by bitcoin. Or what do you think's gonna happen now. If they listen to me going to drop goal. I've been saying kemper senegal since one thousand nine hundred eighty three and now say five percent gold piper centric and. I did not say that before. I talk with you. I had thoroughly research. I was skeptical on our skeptical. Frankly because i said you know what. I thought okay with my goal. This is the dog new tricks thing that i want. I run up against with the web with the wall street. People like they're constantly saying. Oh listen you know. You're old baby boomers forgotten. I guess to do with how young your mind is. And i listened to you a friend of mine go said i heard you pop a cup hops. The smartest damn straight and do what matters is how old you are. It's whether you're young enough in hearing someone who knows more than you and gonna love. What you have to do is accept the fact that someone who's more now we did in school. It's funny you chemistry and you guys were juice chemistry. And you're going to get blown. I walk into a bitcoin class. What do i think more than the bitcoins i. It's different from chemistry class. No different from an engineering class. I will do the progress. M when i got not schooled but talk by i said what am i doing not protecting myself in what i have been saying. That people could be hyperinflation. But even if there's just plain old inflation why not get in and i did. The thing that have is confused about was was this notion that help your currency versus asset class. Because i think that i am. I'm conflicted and i'm conflating. You can help me say what it really is is. I think that there's three things people are using it for right now right so you have people who are using it. As a medium of exchange people are using historic value and people using it as a speculative asset right. Those three things serve different uses for different people. But i think that a currency obviously historic value. It's hard to deny that people are storing value. I think that's pretty. Well accepted the digital whole narrative. And then when you look at like on chain transaction volume right in some days now. It's ten twelve fifteen billion dollars in a single twenty four hour period of transaction volume. That's putting it into trillions of dollars on annualized which know visas. These guys are eight to twelve trillion dollars in annual volume. So you're talking about maybe twenty five to fifty percent of the largest card networks in the world Super using it now. What they're using it for is very hard to determine but they're using some sort of medium of exchange and then i think the third one and probably the one on focuses on is the speculative nature. People are absolutely in some cases buying it because they think it's gonna go up in us terms and they're going to sell it at a profit later. It's i think that what we gotta figure out here is what's the dominant use case or. Most people speculating or most people using it as four value or most people using it needham of change. My guess is when you look at the data. Sixty percent of bitcoin hasn't moved in the last twelve months. So that tells me that the majority is being used as a store of value over everything else today. Now what happens in the future will find out. But that's how i kind of think about from a use case perspective is it. A currency is an asset. will technically. It could be both right right. Well you know for me because of my my here. Something is all dog. I always said the people. Listen if you could ever ever ever be a situation where you can play with the houses money you take what you put in then your blast and you never have to touch it. And that's what. I'm don neurological may have only took. That took out the money put in. But now i've been i'm never going to touch upon. I'm not. I may never because you traced data scenario for those of us who those of you that watch it you chase down scenario. That doesn't stop at one hundred thousand and a lot of people laugh. I didn't it. Was the twelve thousand. And i started thinking i've gotta get in before it got to fifty and i went home and told my wife i said lisa. I'm doing this thing. And she said why described there since fiber talk. You sound mesmerized. I said no. I i sent. Educate these are two different things. It's not been as rush. It was educated and the course that you laid out made me think you know what it isn't just a car. I borders currency. But i realized it was the store value and a better store value i was using and did i have the belief that it could grow up. Go and i did believe that. It could be speculative staying power but more importantly what i realized is ideal with the company square and instead of saying that they arrive this way. I knew that this cash app people kids are buying a little business. Schnitzel is gone. They're buying a slivers of bitcoin. And i said to myself you know what i want to be with them because they represent future but i also recognize they may be doing for whatever reason but i can be part of that way too and not feel that we've is is a boss. It's not was speculation. Not after the way that you late young you laid it out. And i am sure that you can lay it out for just in one minute. You've gotta just lay it out again or capsule probably not fair but why you know exactly what may be portrait.

Google revelations trigger swift bipartisan call for action
"All this week. Congress has been holding antitrust hearings with a specific i on big tech companies and also this week in investigation published in politico found that nearly a decade ago commissioners at the federal trade commission apparently ignored evidence. That google was building an anticompetitive monopoly in search advertising. It's a topic for quality assurance where we take a second look at big tech story in the news. Matt stoler is research director at the nonprofit election economic liberties project in two thousand twelve. The federal trade commission said we have a bunch of evidence that google is trying to monopolize the entire internet and the five commissioners voted five. Did nothing not to bring a case. So you fast. Forward eight years and google is this giant intermediates the flow of information all over the world controls the internet and there are anti-trust cases against it from a whole bunch of states and forces all over the world which are effectively the anti-trust cases that the ftc did not bring in two thousand twelve companies. Trying to get bigger is not that unusual. What was it about what google was doing at the time that suggested that there should have been a case competing by improving your product or service is what we want but competing by signing agreements to exclude your competitors so that they can't get into the market. That's the essence of antitrust law. Google pays today about ten to fifteen billion dollars a year to apple saying when consumers use their iphones and they open safari on their iphones and they do a search that search automatically goes through google. There were emails that were revealed in this case. They were in the footnotes. That said the effectively the google executives were saying. Yeah we're doing we're signing these deals to monopolize we're signing these deals to exclude competitors from the market in some ways tech with a new crash industry. Then it is clear from these papers that you know. The economists working with the ftc made some predictions that were couldn't have been more wrong. Let's say can you chalk this up to simply not understanding what was happening in the tech industry or what could happen. So one part of a broad problem of elite lawlessness in america and across the west the way that anti-trust lawyers think about the world. They just are completely out of touch that that has to do with a very old school framework where they only look at What's called consumer welfare. If something is good for consumers that's the only thing they care about and they were like. Oh google offers a bunch of free stuff. And then if they're doing that the nothing that they do is bad and the so they accepted a whole bunch of arguments from google and essentially said to the commission don't file a case meanwhile the anti-trust lawyers at the ftc. Were like yeah. This is obvious stuff. This is really. this is really bad.

I think he's mostly the bad kind of always good unless you're culkeen enthusiasts then he's probably probably really nice guy i love that he pops up every now and then. They always eased ed.

So he doesn't have three billion he's fucking he's on the hook for twelve billion for his arrest in the states so maybe it's fifteen billion and then but they want the twelve what it's like. You said you're never gonna know and it's not like the there'll be numbers all over the fucking. They said they said for for what's his name. They said they'll thirty three point nine.

Everything Everywhere Daily
"fifteen billion" Discussed on Everything Everywhere Daily
"The question of who was the richest person in history is an extremely difficult question to answer. There are a bunch of different variables that have to be addressed even begin to come up with a resolution to the question. Let's start with the current richest person in the world. jeff bezos. His current net worth is around one hundred and eighty to two hundred billion dollars. Depending on the price of amazon stock that value is determined by some small number of shares being traded every day. Let's say. Jeff bezos wanted to buy a two hundred billion dollar faberge egg with cash. Could he do it. The answer is no and it isn't even close to raise that much money in cash you would have to sell his stock and amazon. He currently owns about eleven percent of the outstanding stock in the company. If you were to sell his stock all at once simple supply and demand would cause the price of amazon stock to plummet the fact that the founder and ceo of amazon is dumping stock would further depress confidence causing the price to drop. Even more. I'm sure he could probably get billions or tens of billions of dollars for his amazon stock. But there's no way he could get the full two hundred billion so his wealth can certainly valued at two hundred billion but there's no way he could ever convert that into anything close to two hundred billion dollars in the short run. Bill gates has been selling off his shares of microsoft for decades rather than dumping everything on the market. He's been selling off. Regular amounts on a regular schedule over time to diversify its holdings this way. The markets aren't spooked and they're not overwhelmed with shares hitting the market and just as an aside if bill gates had never sold a share of microsoft stock and never donated anything to charity. His net worth would be over seven hundred billion dollars today. So i bring up the topic of how you can actually measure. Someone's wealth as the first challenge in answering the question of who was the richest person in history. The next big problem is how you compare fortunes over time. One of the richest people in the world during the gilded age. Was john d. rockefeller. He became the first person to have a nominal net worth over one billion dollars in nineteen nineteen. So how does that compare with someone. Like jeff bezos if you just look at the inflation adjusted value of his fortune would only be fifteen billion dollars today now. Fifteen billion dollars is not too shabby and it would still make him one of the richest people in the world however there's more than just adjusting for inflation back in one thousand nine nineteen. His net worth was about three percent of the value of the entire gross domestic product of the united states. That much today would be around six hundred billion dollars making him far wealthier than jeff bezos. The problem with that is that the economy is much larger today beyond just inflation or population. Growth rockefeller made his fortune in oil. The oil industry is a smaller part of the economy. Now than it was back then another way to look at it would be to see how much more wealthy rockefeller was. Compared to the average person the average annual salary in the us back in one thousand nine hundred nineteen was around seven hundred fifty dollars making that an inflation adjusted eleven thousand dollars today..

Beat earlier in the week. So karen you always advocated for the rerating of this stock. At what point does it look expensive non here that looks. I could argue. It looks less expensive today than it did a week ago. I mean the magnitude of that earnings beat was so extraordinary. Just the beat. The beat itself was thirty percent higher than what the street expected which was already. I mean that is huge. Cloud was great. i think will continue see strengthened advertising. We haven't seen travel really come back yet. They'll be a big beneficiary of that. Don't forget the cash horde of one hundred and fifteen billion dollars which it gets almost no credit for so. I think you know when you back out the cash. The pe ratio for next year is just slightly above the market and yet it's should be well above the market so i think it's still in the tech world. I think it's a great value staying long talk about rereading at least fifteen firms on wall street raised their price targets on this stock since the earnings report susquehanna is the street high of three thousand dollars share which is a lot higher from where it is here.

$900B COVID relief bill passed by Congress, sent to Trump
"To the big story out of washington this morning. The house and senate passing kobe relief. Bill late last night alongside legislation to fund the government through the end of september than joins us with the latest. Good morning. dan good morning mike. After months of delays disputes in. What seemed like endless debate. Congress finally cleared a nine hundred billion dollar corona virus relief package just before midnight last night and with it. A one point four trillion dollar bill that funds the government through the fiscal year. The final vote in the house was three fifty nine to fifty three. The senate passed it ninety. two six. two senators missed the vote. Now it should be on the president's desk at some point in the coming week but in a statement yesterday the white house said president trump has pushed hard for months to send americans badly needed financial relief. We look forward to congress sending a bill to his desk. Imminently for signature. The bill puts an end to the uncertainty facing millions of unemployed workers whose benefits are set to expire at the end of this week and to troubled renters who could have faced eviction at the end of this month. It's also a lifeline to small businesses. That have been waiting on. Another round of the airline industry gets fifteen billion dollars. And nine billion goes to the cdc and to the states to help distribute vaccine now. Many of the relief measures in this package expire in the spring and democrats have already said this is just a bridge to the next administration so mike stay tuned. Yeah exactly that was going to pick up right on that because we can argue about you know the size of this package relative to perhaps what was available before the election relative to either side's hopes of democrats pretty clear saying that this is just a step and there's going to be more to come. It's unclear though given how difficult it was to get this done. Obviously we have a senate runoff to worry about in terms of figuring out the game. Plan here but it's really unclear necessarily if there's going to be a lot of follow on appetite for for more stimulus down the road.
