The US will pay up to $10 million if you can ID a foreign election hacker
"Provide information on a foreign hackers who's been meddling with the US election and you could receive up to ten million US dollars as a reward. The US State Department says the reward will go to and I quote information leading to the identification of or location of any person who works with or for a foreign government for the purpose of interfering with US elections through certain illegal cyber activities well to explain that and tell us more. Let's hear from Elizabeth Bro. She leads modern deterrence program at here in London. Welcome back to the program Elizabeth and just describe what exactly the US State Department is doing. A good money on at. This is really fascinating program. So but the State Department is doing is essentially offering the same sort of rewards for people who Reports. People who who who are planning to interfere with elections in the same way that's the US government does with people who report terrorist. So it's it's essentially bounty on election interferes information. So how do you go about catching? A Hacker D I mean who we talking about here I mean he's he's going to be claiming the prize to begin to look at counter hackers. Is it a large authorities large private sector organizations or even a teenager in his bedroom? I think it may well be teenager in his bedroom so I think the most likely. Recipient of this money is somebody working with hackers who? May have been who who are in the process of interfering with US elections and we should remember it's not just hackers. It's people who are Spreading this information as well. It aimed at undermining confidence in elections and we should remember the people who are doing it are. Oprah are often operating on behalf of another government but they don't work for the government and that is the problem in the Western governments have it's so hard to to catch them because they are can relive just be people in their bedrooms. Working survivor freelance arrangement with a country, and so people like me have long been thinking about how D- How do we deter how how can we make sure that they don't engage in that behaviour I must say as a European. I just never thought of of the option of offer offering a bounty to to people willing to turn them in. But here this is what? We are getting or this is what what US government is proposing exactly. What does it suggest about the way that the Americans are actually trying to catch these people who who are trying to meddle with the elections. There is some suggestion that you know given the large amount of money ten million dollars, and that the United States might not quite be up to the job themselves. But so this is the interesting thing right I mean when you offer bounded it sort of indicates that you've tried other means and you're not getting anywhere and that's why. Are So often used by the governments to to catch terrorists because it's The government has failed them tend to catch him in other ways, but with election interference to fear of the ways that have usually been sought about the cyber. Cyber defender. Let's say in in in our Western countries. Keeping the country safe and also signaling to to perpetrators would be prepetrators if they commit their offensive acts that would be punishment but clearly, it's not the now for the recent, we can see it's not enough is that These activities continue. So clearly the the the the would be attackers and they and their is don't feel deterred by what's currently happening in the the problem was for the defender is that if you? If you're too heavy handed if you attack back than Jose escalates. It could it could really get out of control. So this is a completely different. Take on and I think it's it's one those Soviet uniquely American with this long tradition of of bounties and something that the property ripping countries won't engage in but but it has worked with with in some cases with terrorists that the US government was was trying to find. So I mean it sounds frankly it sounds completely crazy. Let's see they even Be Able to locate a few hackers. This way Elizabeth, how much evidence is said that the current US elections has already seen some international involvement and interference. So it's It's it's hard to quantify and the the reason that this is so difficult to serve you don't even need to. Successfully interfere with an election in order for that election to be to be tainted or poisoned or compromised. What's it's enough for people to have the impression that that's the election is being. Tinkered with by somebody and and that's the really frightening thing. So that was They've been very service both. Opponents both in the US and elsewhere that people whether such and such election in that country. was interfered with, for example, by the Russians, and and for something in here in UK, there was a recent poll where. Forty nine percent of people in the UK thought that rushing to with the brexit referendum. So it doesn't really matter whether Russia defeated with Brexit Brentford with mattresses at half of the population in the UK thanks that rushing to fit and then the referendum is already tainted by that and that is that makes this whole thing so difficult. So it's it and that's why program like this may not have much. Effect because what matters is people think in other countries interfering
Courageous Cultures With Karin Hurt & David Dye
"Employees have ideas, leaders want to hear them, and yet somehow there is a disconnect. So what if instead you can have a courageous colchester where people speak up, they share ideas, the default is to contribute. So today, we're going to start with grounding you in a little bit of the research under grounds, our work, and then from, there are going to give a series of very practical tools to help you tap into the very best ideas and micro innovations that are happening on your team right now. So. To answer these questions about why speaking up with problem solutions with micro innovations advocating for customers is difficult. We partnered with the University of Northern, Colorado and a research project both quantitative and qualitative to figure out what keeps people from being able to speak up and what are some of the best companies doing to overcome those barriers. The first reason we discovered through that research is that no one's asking, in fact, forty, nine percent of our research respondents said, they are not consistently asked for ideas by their leaders. And then many people feel like nothing's going to happen. A full fifty percent of respondents said that if they were to share an idea, it wouldn't be taken seriously by their leadership. So, why bother? And then you ever feel stock. Well quite a few respondents feel the same way just over two thirds. Sixty, seven percent said that their leadership operates under the principle because we've always done it this way if we've always done it this way, that's the way we're always going to do it, and then there's the reluctance that comes from fear or a lack of confidence forty percent. Our research respondents said that they lack the confidence to share an idea. So this concept of sue or fear of speaking up was very interesting as we conducted interview after interview across a variety of industries and countries all over the world. Why are people so afraid to speak up and I? We said if you did speak up what are the ideas that you're holding back and these things are not trivial sound like Khumbu, in a break room kind of ideas. They said my idea that I'm not sharing would be to improve the customer experience, the employee experience or improvement of process. People are scared primarily because they have had a bad experience in the past. So research shows that people tend to hold onto a negative experience longer than a positive experience, which means that even if you are a fantastic leader, encouraging people to speak. Supporting them. If they had a bad experience in the past, they may still be holding onto that and are not sharing their best ideas because of old fear. So, an addition to that psychological aspect of overweight in the past people also tend to discount the future in Dr Amy Edmonson Research. She talks a lot about how when it comes to psychological safety. People don't recognize just how valuable the contribution they could make will be. So as a leader, you want to be aware that these things are happening in your team. Another reason people lacked the competence to share is that they haven't been taught how to share their ideas well, and so we will also be giving you a tool today to help you give to your team to help them vet and think through their ideas. So we'll just take you through a little bit. Bit about the courageous cultures process, and then we were going to go a little bit deeper into a couple of these areas. Today. When you're building courageous culture, it really starts with navigating the narrative that is grounding yourself in your own fear or confidence. So are you letting a bad past experience? Hold you back and so one of the things that we do in our programs is really get people to think about their most courageous sacked at work and build on that confidence. The next is creating clarity, and when we talk about creating clarity, we're really talking about in clarity into areas, I being crystal clear that you really do want people's ideas and reinforcing that. Again and second clarity around what a good idea would accomplish, and we'll talk about how you can get more specific than just. Hey, does anybody have any good ideas? Next is cultivating curiosity, and this is where it will spend most of our time today. How do you go out and deliberately stay curious and draw out people's best

Bed Bath and Beyond to close 200 stores over 2 years as sales fall almost 50% during pandemic
"First quarter sales for bed bath and beyond fell nearly fifty percent. On yesterday's show, we talked about the number of store closings so far in twenty twenty. We can add bed bath and beyond the list because they're going to be closing two hundred locations over the next few years and they should Brian. Yes they should. This was a pretty rough report. Although to be fair, it was over. March April and May, so it's kind of hard for a retailer to report good results during that period, but it's hard to find really any good news in this report, Chris, as you noted, sales fell forty nine percent to one point three billion. That's quite drop when you dig into that a little bit more, you see that store sales dropped seventy seven percent. On the plus side, digital sales actually grew eighty two percent, and this actually blew me away. Digital sales at this company represents two-thirds of sales this quarter. That's far harder than I. thought it was going to be Chris. Me as well and We've been saying this for months. With all kinds of retailers, you look at the results for the quarter. Not Surprising to see digital sales skyrocketing. To try and counterbalance the store closings. Unfortunately that's not the case here with bed, bath and beyond. You know when you talk about sort of. Where is the silver lining? If there is one? I think it's actually in the announcement of the store closings. Mark Trittin, who really made his bones at target as an executive vice president. Targets. Move into private label. Brands. Trittin was the guy behind that. So there was a lot of enthusiasm at the end of two thousand nineteen when he took over this company. And he made some pretty swift moves in the C. Suite like he basically. Cut Most of the executives. And, it's clear that you know for for whatever was happening with the company today in the stock today and it's down about twenty percent today. Trittin is a guy who has a clear vision. He knows what he wants to accomplish. He cleaned house at the end of twenty, nine, thousand, nine hundred and they've got. Nine hundred fifty bed bath and beyond location. They're going to be closing. Two hundred of them over the next two years. You know just on a percentage basis. That's you know we've seen. Retailers Nibble around the edges edges were store closings before, and so as someone who actually owns a few share, a bed bath, and beyond like that's the silver lining to me is that Trittin is doing with the store closings what he did with the executive ranks?

Here’s What Warren Buffett Says About The Coronavirus And His Outlook On Stocks
"May kicked off with one of the biggest events of the investment calendar the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting. Hey hurrah but instead of forty thousand people flocking to Omaha. Warren Buffett sat at a table in a near Empty Auditorium. Under did either of you watch it at all. It was kind of the surreal experience. Now I saw two seconds of it. I haven't gotten around to it but it is always. It still blows my mind. That forty thousand people go to Omaha just to maybe get a chance to see Warren Buffett. That's crazy and it's crazy that he can sit up there for that long and answer question after question after question now usually also joined by Charlie. Munger this year he was not instead he was joined by Greg able able. Who is the vice chairman in charge of all operate operate instead of Insurance? But it still went on for more than four hours. Wow I more than an hour was a presentation that he gave so I listened to the entire meeting. Impasse episodes I would. I've said that sort of my personal investing philosophy is be a short-term pessimist at a long-term optimist and that sorta seems to me was the message of the whole meeting so on the pessimistic side. They're clearly not doing anything you know. They've still kept most of their one hundred thirty billion in cash. He did not use the downturn as an opportunity to go on a buying spree. He essentially he likened previous downturns to train. That is slowing down. This time. He said we took the economic train off the tracks. And I don't know of any historical parallel in the range of possibilities on the economic side are still extraordinarily wide in other words. They're still sitting pat on what they're going to do. He also said quote. We have not done anything because we don't see anything that attractive to do. Heels actually spent a good deal of time talking about some of the past challenges and failings America's history so for example. He pointed out that. Despite the fact that we have a declaration of independence that claims that all men are created equal. When you look at the three point nine million people living in the original thirteen states and seven thousand nine hundred fifteen percent were slaves pointed out that during the civil war six percent of the male population between the ages of eighteen and sixty died. The twenty twenty equivalent of that would be four million deaths according to Warren Buffett and then it took one hundred thirty one years for women to have the right to vote at another sixty one years until a woman was appointed to the Supreme Court so we often talks about the long term success of America. He did spend a good bit of time talking about some of the things that we have not done so well. He spent a particular amount of time on going over the Great Depression I think partially because he was born in the middle of the Great Depression so he pointed out. It's September nine hundred twenty nine. The Dow was at three eighty one. Five hundred didn't exist back then so he just using the Dow and then in a little more than two months it was down forty nine percent to one ninety eight. You Move Ahead to August twenty ninth nineteen thirty. Which is the day before he was born. It was backed up to two forty so and it rebounded twenty percent. People have found that like okay. Stocks went down but there. They've gone back up back then. People were thinking that they were on the verge of the Great Depression. You go ahead less than two years to July thirty two. The Dow is down to forty one so from the peak went from three eighty one to forty one a decline of eighty nine percent and the Dow did not get back to its nineteen twenty nine peak until nineteen fifty four. Wow he did point out that people got dividends at back then. Dividends were higher but still price percentage the market was down for more than twenty years so buffet called the Great Depression a testing period. That caused some people that lose faith in America. I don't know if he was playing out to say like times ahead could be tougher than we think or just pointing out that America has seen worse times but regardless he says that anyone's going to lose faith in America that's a big mistake which brings us to his persistent message of being a long-term optimistic pointed out that despite all these challenges from seventeen eighty nine until today the wealth of the of the United States has grown five thousand percent and that's adjusted for inflation. He also pointed out that since the year he graduated from college in Nineteen Forty nine at the age of nineteen one dollar in the Dow has grown to one hundred dollars. So how do people benefit from what he calls the American miracle? Well as he often does and I think it's always interesting that he does this during the Berkshire hathaway annual meeting because it's an annual meeting of people who own individual stocks. He thinks the vast majority of people should just by an S. and P. Five Hundred Index Fund and. He mentioned that's what he does. That's what he has directed his will when he passes away swimming. He predeceased. His wife. Ninety percent of that wealth will go into an SAP hundred index fund. In fact one question asked about Berkshires underperformance as a stock. It's underperformed this year as well as the last decade a something. I know personally because I've owned Berkshire for more than a decade and he was basically said. I agree that that's an issue. He said that the truth is that I recommended. Sap Five Hundred Index Fund. To most people. And I happen to believe that Berkshire is about a solid is any single investment can be in terms of earning over time. But I would bet my life on whether we beat the sap five hundred over the next ten years so as always with buffet. It comes down to betting on America for the long term. But it's clearly means the long term to be like very long-term it mentioned the timeframe twenty to thirty years a couple of times the only truly positive thing he said about shorter timeframe at least that I can remember was in response to a question about whether Berkshire expect significant significant layoffs among its workforce which at this point. It employs almost four hundred thousand people in response. He said that some businesses will have to make adjustments. See's candies closed down. Nebraska Furniture Mart. Some of their factories may have issues. It's the funniest list of companies. I'm sorry Oh it's like it's very clean seas it's like what. Why Energy facturing? Yeah it's it's everything it's all these companies that you like. Yeah I think I've I think I've heard of Kim or have it at all. It's quite amazing. But well while he expects it some there will be have to be some layoffs. He doesn't expect them to be significant in that five years from now he expects Berkshire we'll be employing considerably more people so that to me says he expects five years from now. Things will fully recover and I think that's a reasonable timeframe. I certainly expected in five years. This time period will feel like somewhat of a distant memory. I certainly hope so But it's certainly possible that over the next year or two things could turn out to be pretty rocky

Big Banks, Airlines, March Retail Report
"It's Wednesday April fifteenth. Welcome to mark. I'm Chris Sale with me today. The one and only Andy Cross could see my friend. Hey Chris how're you doing in there? I got coffee. I'm good good to we got. We got a lot going retail. We've got airlines. We'VE GOT ENTERTAINMENT. But we're GONNA start today with the big banks because it's earning season and the as an industry. The big banks sort of lead the way Goldman Sachs and Bank of America both out with first-quarter reports Goldman Sachs profits down. Forty Nine Percent Bank of America can take some small solace in the fact that their first quarter profits. Were only down forty five. Yeah it's it's the real headline I think from the banks. Chris is just the reserve the loan loss reserves. They're taking now in this quarter so when you look across almost all the banks. That's been the biggest hit to the prophet picture. The revenues were somewhere in the flat. Picture for example Goldman revenues were flat. Gp Morgan's revenues were down like three percent wells. Fargo was down down about eighteen percent so the revenue lines weren't such the concern. It was really much more profit picture as you mentioned. And we're just seeing that show up in the earnings per share of these companies but the biggest part for that or these loan loss reserves that these companies have to the banks have to set aside in the expectation that the economic crisis. The pandemic that we're facing is going to cause some of their clients both on the consumer side and the commercial side to not pay their bills and so they had to set aside reserves for that. So when you just look at like what happened with with Goldman their earnings down forty six percent and they set aside nine hundred thirty seven million dollars this quarter. That's almost as much as they sent. Set aside for all of two thousand nineteen and that's four times the amount that aside in the first quarter of two thousand nineteen and you see the same thing across all of the the big banks. Gps set aside an additional six point. Eight billion dollars. It's four point. Four billion in the consumer side mostly for cardholders and the rest on the on the commercial side and across the entire company. That say this is ten billion more in reserves than a year ago. So you're seeing these banks really start to ramp up their preparation for what they expect to be. A very tough market of the next year I would also think in the case for every one of these banks has an investment banking arm. Goldman Sachs is the clubhouse leader and I would think that as we are in this environment where it's really hard to imagine any company going public in the next say at least two months Probably closer to four to six months That's one more thing that a bank like Goldman Sachs has to worry about. Yeah Chris absolutely right. So there's just these very high margin parts of their business that are going to start to see. Oh the fluctuations if not complete drops because that market has really started to soften. What's interesting on the Goldman side and Goldman's really going through this this reform under the new? Ceo Their new their new CEO. The bank is really kind of struggled. It's such A. It's such such known as such a class name in the banking space but the stock has actually struggled and the returns on equity have actually trailed their peers over the last few years. There's a real push by the new. Ceo David Salman to start to really invigorate Goldman Sachs again. So we had this whole plan when he became. Ceo after Lloyd Blankfein just recently and then obviously the pandemic hit so but a bright spot to Goldman or big part. Their business has always been there. Trading revenues and. That's actually been kind of a little bit of an Albatross for them over the past couple years but that actually was a bright spot in the first quarter of the same thing with J. P. Morgan Goldman's trading revenues were up twenty eight percent and JP Morgan is trading revenues. Were up thirty two percent so because of all the volatility because of all the frenetic trading activity were seen in the markets from both institutional clients and consumer clients for the big banks. It's mostly institutions were. We saw these results pop up for some of these. Larger banks like Goldman G. P. M. So that's that was one small bright spot in a quarter. That obviously is showing a lot of pain. Jp MORGAN LONG-SERVING CEO. Probably the most respected name and finances. We've talked about Jimmy Diamond. Chris who had suffered a emergency heart surgery a few months ago and came back to the job right in the middle of the as the pandemic starting to really get going. He put out his earning his his His annual letter. He talks about every year and really try to set the tone for the market ahead of what we the financial institutions and banks will see over the next year because there's obviously a lot of concern With just the just the plumbing and the financial picture of US banks. Let's move on to the airline industry because several airlines including Delta American jet blue and southwest have said that they have reached agreements with the US Treasury Department on part of that twenty five billion dollar plan for payroll grants. Obviously this is Good news for those airlines and The people who work there but it really does seem like this. I don't WanNa call it a band aid but it seems like it is a A relatively short bridge. That'll get them through the next couple of months. Hopefully but all the airlines really seemed like they have their work cut out for them Chris. I think I think bridge a bridge. If not band aid bridge I think is a good term apropos because So of the two point two trillion dollar in the stainless package that was signed into law. Last week were in late March. Now the the airlines are starting to work with the Treasury Department to figure out how they can access that and both in grants and loans and as you mentioned a pretty much all of the airlines all the major ones are going to start tapping into this and this is obviously Anita step for businesses. That are really struggling. You're seen bookings that are downed. Seventy ninety percent capacity in the company these companies have they have taken capacity out from their business both domestic and international. So it's really started. There's a heavy fixed cost and these businesses and when they have nobody flying and nobody buying tickets especially business travel which is really slow down. You're starting to see it now. Show up in the potential future of these businesses. But back to your bridge comment. I think these the airlines when I look at almost all the industries that operate and you think about the recovery patterns. I don't know if we're going to be in a v-shaped recovery or more of a U. shape slow growth recovery of both in the US and worldwide. But I do think. The airlines travel companies of all the industries. They will really be in the most flat shape recovery and I think it'll take a while for consumers to be able to come back into the travel mode get used to going back into airplanes. Get used to going back into airports. Airports Basically over the last ten twenty years have become big retail destinations. And you're seeing now foot traffic in the airports drop off a cliff and that's hurting the retail establish establishments inside these airports so that industry is just going to go along a long way to recover. They they needed this. They needed to be a tap the US government to help them support their business. Because without that you would see massive bankruptcies in the Industry Savan to the retail industry because we got the march retail report. And it was. I think every bit as bad as we were all expecting retail across the board down eight point seven percent in the month of March. That is the worst in history. Worst drop in history and context third on the list is the drop in retail that we saw in November. Two thousand eight and this was more than twice as bad in terms of percentages. And you start going through this. And the and of course the lone bright spot is grocery stores up around twenty seven percent but some of these other numbers in here you look at clothing and clothing accessory down. Fifty percent motor vehicles down twenty five percent. These are not but I kind of like we saw with the monthly jobs report for March and we knew that it was much worse because it really the only started They stopped collecting that data mid month. Same thing with retail. I mean I'm looking at one of my thoughts when I was going through. The march retail report was my God. How much worse is April GonNa? Because then we'll have a full month of this crazy was really devastating report. I guess not too surprising considering what we had seen in in late February and obviously there's our own consumer behavior but just for some context first of all that eight point seven percent number. Chris you mentioned is just a drop from February. So it's a month over month seasonally-adjusted number but historically that if you go back. They've collected this data since nineteen ninety-two if you go back. Usually that month-on-month change is in a small less than a percent change so the average is about point three five percents. So it's it's pretty tight. It's a very tight range. You're talking an average of point. Three percent with a standard deviation so changed from an average of less than a percent. So you really talking a very tight range here. You're talking last month. We saw a drop of eight point seven percent so it's significant compared to the average and not in way outside this the norm of what we see the last few decades so like you mentioned the worst number before this was in the great financial crisis when it was when when the number of fell three point eight and three point nine percent back to back. So we're talking twice as much as that drops it just context that about how significant this was just knowing wh- how we have changed as consumers. It's really pretty. It's evident and now we're seeing a show up in the number so as you mentioned some of the areas really got hit just really just a very significantly and then you see you see spots like grocery stores actually have a very significant ramp because as we continue to spend more and more at the groceries try to stock up in preparation for the quarantine that we are all facing and now still face and then you see things like food services and drinking places down twenty six percent from the month before and obviously just showing there that the real impact and that's having ripple effects because when you talk about ten to twenty percent of the global of the US employment is somehow tied to entertainment travel that area getting back to our airlines business.

Mass is the executive director of clean energy economy. Minnesota we'll come back to climate cast. Greg thank you for having me Paul. Okay this is a big report with a lot of numbers right so if you had to pick one number from this report. What's that number? I think you hit on it right at the top Paul. And that's that nearly half of Minnesota's power came from Zero Carbon Energy sources in twenty nineteen so overall power sector emissions are really a success story in Minnesota when it comes to climate thirty seven percent is how much they've been reduced since two thousand five. How do we replicate that success in the transportation sector is that really the next big opportunity for Minnesota because it is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in our state? We know that by replicating the success that we've seen in our electricity or the power sector and the connectedness that are transportation sector has to electricity in the form of battery electric vehicles and plug in hybrid. Electric vehicles with Paulson leadership in continued initiatives. We've already seen since two thousand fifteen sales of battery. Electric vehicles have increased almost six hundred ninety percent and sales of plug in hybrid. Electric vehicles have increased two hundred percent so today there's currently thirteen thousand electric vehicles and plug in hybrid electric vehicles on Minnesota's roads. And we know that we can go. Further and faster with strong policies to really achieve the vision for the transportation sector where the State is looking at having twenty percent of. Evt's by twenty thirty in that area. Greg there was always that argument. That if you reduce greenhouse gas emissions you're going to stifle economic growth. What can we say about Minnesota's economic progress as we're making this transition to clean energy the area that really helps to measure this is what we refer to as energy productivity and this year's factsheet has shown that we have since two thousand ten grown our state's Gross Domestic Product by twenty four percent where power consumption over that same time period has only growing two percent and so when we measure energy productivity? Were looking at. How much can we grow our economy and produce more products and services while at the same time? We're using the same or less energy. And Minnesota's done an excellent job in doing that where we have now boosted overall energy productivity by twenty two percent and. That's really remarkable. And we've seen a boom in jobs. Where do the numbers stand with clean energy jobs in Minnesota? Today there's over sixty one thousand MINNESOTANS who work in our energy efficiency and renewable energy sector and those jobs are growing two and a half times faster than all other sectors of Minnesota's economy in the environment were into damn wondering. Are we seeing any legislative or other efforts planned in Minnesota this year? That are now delayed. I think we're going to have to continue to see how things play out through the remainder of this legislative session. But certainly we're continuing to work with policy makers as they are evaluating several important opportunities for advancing energy efficiency and clean energy as our economy recovers from the disruption and certainly the hardship that has already been caused by the corona virus pandemic clean energy should be prioritized to spur job creation and also improve the resiliency of

S. attorney's office here in Washington DC is unique among the ninety four US attorney's offices in the country because we investigate and prosecute not only violations of the United States code in federal District Court but also on the local statute the district of Columbia code in DC Superior Court indeed most of our prosecutions occur in DC Superior Court DC has a relatively expensive what's called the bias related crimes statute if it's criminal acts that demonstrate an individual's prejudice based on what the actual or perceived race color religion national origin sex age marital status status personal appearance sexual orientation gender identity or expression family responsibility homelessness physical disability matriculation or political affiliation of the victim of the of the act in question so this is broader than the federal hate crime statutes in a number of ways it does address a number of additional protected classes it also applies not only to violent conduct like assaults and attempts to cause bodily injury but also to crimes like injury to property staffed unlawful entry burglaries robberies and arson and finally does not require an interstate nexus as some of the federal hate crimes statute to do so in many ways it is broader DC also has an act of terrorism statute which is commonly referred to as a domestic terrorism statute and that applies to criminal acts taken with the intent to intimidate and coerce a significant portion of the civilian population of the district of Columbia and the United States I raise these examples just to point out that there need well be on state or local statutes in jurisdictions all across the country and that also would apply to heat incidents or hate crimes and that is it's important to think about sort of the the broad range of ways that we as a country can tackle this problem second my office has in many instances used federal criminal statutes that are are not the the federal he crime statues to address conduct that it involves the violence or risk of violence east on he directed at a particular group late last year for example we charged a defendant under a federal firearms statute any legal user of a controlled substance in possession of a firearm but that particular defendant had come to the attention of authorities a because of certain public statements that he had made supporting white nationalism and indicating that he had fantasized about reasonable based violence we had another case in which an individual call them bomb threats to some Jewish community centers here in the district and to the Israeli embassy in we prosecuted that person under the interstate threats and bomb hoaxes statutes same principle applies with respect to local statutes there may be and I know there are in DC statutes that may apply to conduct of life is that can be used in addition to or instead of the federal hate crimes statute so if there's an instance we taken all tools approach so if we can charge a hate crime we certainly will if for some reason we can't maybe not all the elements are met we look for other ways that we can address criminal conduct so again it is really a great pleasure to be here and to engage in this discussion with my distinguished co panelists and everybody here in the audience thank you so much yes Lou US attorney district of Columbia moderator the panel is Josh Rogan of The Washington Post this is life I think that was a great set of introductions I'd like to start off by asking one question to all three panelists and you know for those of you have been here all day you've heard a lot of panelist talk about their rise in the statistics of hate crimes of course anti semitic hate crimes but all hate crimes according to the FBI's own two thousand seventeen hate crime statistics the increasing anti semitic hate crimes for the most common religious hate crimes I mean I think it's well documented and but what I would love to hear from these officials from you guys why is that what is what do you see what do you think what is your analysis of why we're seeing in twenty seventeen and of course the new numbers are now but we can presume twenty eighteen and twenty nineteen higher levels of hate crimes both anti semitic a grounds and.

I think he's twelve hundred. Oh, yeah. So yes, you do those do see like a little bit of outlier numbers. But Reggie Jackson to me is like I never agreed with. I the trade that they made for him, which I think the peace. They gave up essentially formless Kyle Singler. It was a good trade. They immediately sided with an eighty million dollars contract. And I did not see him as eighty million dollar player and these unfortunately had knee injuries, which is really slowed them down. But when he is an efficient score, which he isn't very often. But at the golden moments when he is he had a couple of absolutely brilliant playoff stretches with. The thunder as their third guard. That is what fueled the pistons desire to go make him their lead guard. But when he when he does have those stretches of efficiency, he does look fantastic. And he is having the hottest one. He's he's had. That's for sure. And you know, I think the I think the pistons who are a team that was under some pressure to have a big year this year. And they kicked around doing some more at the trade deadline. They Drummond was has floated around out there in the market for a while. They ended up deciding to keep him and he's had a terrific stretch. So I think. I think I think the pistons are team to pay attention to on the other end of the spectrum the Golden State Warriors had to their own vision. Their worse loss of the season less light to the sons the sons have had a great week. They've beaten the the bucks and the warriors this game happened in Golden State. And I'm really my my my brain tells me not to get too worried about the warriors. I don't really want to spend time worrying about them. They're so good when they're on. And you know, they're playing in Houston. I think on Wednesday night, and they could very easily go to Houston and their winning streak, you know, and they'll play it's a stake in their heart. And and, you know, everything's okay. But Kevin when I look at this team the difference. It's been the difference between this team and other teams including last year's team, which I think finished seven ten down the stretch of the season. And then went sixteen and five in the playoffs. They didn't have this major DeMarcus cousins situation where they had to really change their style of play to accommodate him, which is struggling which is hurting them on defense and this team's depth. Just isn't there? They go into the bench in it gets ugly quickly. And that's something that they. Wanted to fix. They recognize that they were weakening there with some age and David west retiring, and he just haven't been able to do that this year. Should I legitimately be concerned about this? Or should I go with my instinct and say they're going to be fine. A little I mean, we did see against Denver on Friday night that you know, when the warriors were up for that game. You know, the nuggets had a chance to tie them for first place in the Western Conference and the words came out and showed everyone. Hey, we're still the warriors and had kind of great performance that we've come to expect from them. It's very possible that yeah, we get to the playoffs. And they they flip the switch and that happens. I mean, I think the the one dangerous thing about that though is because of that track record because of that mind said as long as Kevin Durant is there if the warriors lose it's going to be, you know, we're gonna find ourselves saying a why didn't we see all these signs because they were actually they're all along..

"You would think in the middle of the holiday season Wall Street would give us a break. And maybe even give us a present or two, but aside from bitcoin jumping twenty thirty percent in the past week everything else has been going in the opposite direction as of Wednesday this week the S and P five hundred was down fifteen percent from its high back on September twenty first we're talking like two three months the stock market down about fifteen percent. Now, the technical definition of a bear market is when the market is down twenty percent. So okay, the S and P five hundred is down fifteen. It's officially not bear market. But you know, what I wouldn't blame you if you felt like it was why because of the five hundred companies in the S and P five hundred three hundred two of them are in fact down more than twenty percent. They're down more than twenty percent off their fifty two week high. But despite all that it's so weird that the stock market is doing so badly. Because in the midst of all this corporate earnings growth remains positive surveys of corporate purchasing managers are still positive, meaning they're still buying their still growing their companies employment remains at an all time high wage growth is strong and inflation and interest rates are still low, but people are bearish anyway, people are just Neo investors generally or just not feeling good. In fact in the last week. I the American Association of individual investors doesn't survey every week of investors around the country asking how you feel on. What's your attitude are you bearish meaning are you negative or are you bullish? Meaning are you positive? You feeling good or you feel bad and in the last week alone. The percentage of investors who say their bearish went from thirty percent to forty nine percent. So that's fine. But you don't have all of your money in the stock market. You have a diversified portfolio. You only have some of your money in the stock market. Maybe it's thirty percent forty fifty sixty maybe even seventy percent of your assets. And stocks eighty percent, maybe if you're really risk-tolerant with a long term time horizon, but you don't have all of your money in stocks. You have a diversified portfolio. In addition owning stocks you on bonds, you have real estate you have oil and gas, you have natural resources. You have commodities you've expedite technologies, you have a wide variety of asset classes and markets sectors from all around the world government securities as well as corporate securities. Well, guess what a diversified portfolio didn't provide much insulation this year, if we take a look at the fifteen major asset classes eleven of them have posted negative returns. So far this year. The last time that happened nineteen thirteen. So you know, it really didn't matter what your strategy has been this year it didn't work, but just because it didn't work this year. Doesn't mean that it never works or that it will never work again. Remember you own a diversified portfolio? You know, twelve eggs and twelve baskets is a whole lot safer than twelve eggs in one basket, and it's a whole lot safer than owning only one AIG. So remember how important it is that you keep focused on the long term. You would never have guessed a year ago that this year would turn out like did because it was such an unusual year. It's sort of like a one of those hundred year storms. And so there's no reason to think that it's going to be repeated anytime soon, no one not even you can predict short term market moves. There's no evidence. In fact, that anyone anywhere has ever demonstrated any level of consistent success with market timing being able to predict what's going to happen tomorrow next week next month next quarter even next year. So you need to stick with your diversified portfolio. Assuming that you properly constructed it that it's based on your goals and objectives in your risk tolerance, your needs for liquidity and income and so on if it's proper there's no reason to change it, and you need to stay focused therefore on your long term goals. Why did you build that portfolio in the first place?.
