Jeff Bezos Promises to Make Amazon “Earth’s Best Employer” in Farewell Letter
"As we know. Jeff bezos is relinquishing his. Ceo title later this year and so this morning. He released his final letter to shareholders as amazon ceo. And it's interesting. He directly addressed one of the elephants in the room and suggested that amazon should extend its famous obsession with customer experience to cover care for amazon's own employees as well quoting cnbc. Bazars pointed to the recent union election outcome. At one of amazon's warehouses as an example of why the company needs to address challenges within its workforce last week amazon secured enough votes to defeat a historic unionization. Drive at its bessemer. Alabama warehouse which if successful would have represented the first union at a us amazon facility while the voting results were lopsided and our direct relationship with employees is strong. It's clear to me that we need a better vision for how we create value for employees. A vision for their success. Bazo wrote amazon has famously held a core set of leadership principles chief among them being customer obsessed in the future bazo said he wants amazon to do the same for its employees quote. Despite what we've accomplished it's clear to me that we need a better vision for our employees success. Bazo said we have always wanted to be earth's most customer centric company. We won't change that. It's what got us here. But i am committing us to an addition we are going to be earth's best employer and earth's safest place to work and quotes in his new role as executive chairman. Bazo said he plans to focus on how to make amazon's warehouses safer. Roughly forty percent of work related injuries are sprains or strains mostly due to repeating the same motions and our common among new employees. He
Canadas housing bubble is hitting smaller and smaller communities
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Mike moffitt is an economist and he is the senior director at these smart prosperity institute in ottawa. Hey mike hello. Maybe you could start with the basics for us. How do housing prices in canada right now. Compare with similar countries in the world or compare with even our recent past what we're seeing a house. Price boom across Developed countries so in canada depending on the market prices are up anywhere from five to forty percents We're seeing similar gains in the united states in western europe and is caused by a couple of things I we have a group of individuals calls her white collar professionals who are staying at home They haven't been taking vacations commuting and they are saving a lot of money and they're taking that money and using it to buy all sorts of things so we're seeing huge price increases in the stock market in bitcoin. Things like vintage guitars and hockey cards. So they're putting their money into that and many of them are buying houses. They're buying second homes as investment properties. Which is a boosting the price of those and then we couple that with globally low interest rates which allow people to to finance. The purchase of homes You than they. They would have been able to a year ago. It's just fueling this. Massive boom where again in markets all across canada and in particularly smaller markets like ingersoll and tilson burger markets. Like that. you know. We're we're seeing price increases of of forty percent or more.

Mercury Toxicity with Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"I'm so happy to be sharing the story of mercury with you and a personal story for me with my colleague and medical director on this very special episode of the doctors pharmacy called house call. And i'm gonna sit down with so many of my colleagues the ultra wellness center in lenox massachusetts and liz is just my number one dock. She's a medical director of the ultra wellness center. She teaches all over the world. She's in the faculty and super functional medicine. She's one of the best doctors. I know and we are going to talk about mercury. So welcome liz. Inst- mark it's great to be with you today so let's start with talking about. Why do you think this is just so ignored. Because every is such a prevalent problem and when we cast people at the ultra center we find so many people have not only high blood levels of mercury but high total body levels in fact we did a survey of the ten thousand tests and we done at some point in time and we looked at the number of people who had toxicity and it was forty percent of the people who came to wanna center had high levels of mercury that interfere with their biology. So why did he just ignored. And and what we have to do to properly discover whether mercury is an issue for somebody or not. I mean it's it's a great question. Mark you know Even the world health organization recognizes that mercury is one of the top ten chemicals a major public health concern. But i think that toxins in general interventional medicine are often overlooked and ignored because we we always are thinking about acute tax city in conventional medicine and so often were not thinking about the chronic lower levels of toxicity can have huge health effects as
Lakers Blown Out By Clippers As Offense Sputters
"Dive into it here. The Lakers do wind up dropping this game. 104 286 not pretty the Clippers were pretty much in demand from the the opening jump. They they were in control. They had the game bending to their whim the entire way. In fact, they started out I believe the score was tended to at one point. The Lakers just could not score and the Clipper scored. I believe their first 5,000 baskets on the night the Clippers shot 48% or on the afternoon. I should say in Forty-Eight percent from the field fifty percent from three eighty-nine percent from the free throw line on nine attempts for a Hummer for points. Whereas the Lakers not quite so good. The Lakers only had 38 points at halftime finished with 86. So I guess there's that and that's birth. 31.4 quarter but by that point the Clippers are kind of packed it in forty percent from the field for the Lakers 30% from 3. That's not good enough to get it done and then 75% from the free throw line 15 to 20 shooting page eighteen from the line eighteen turnovers for the Lakers seven offensive rebounds. Here's the thing what really stood out to me just forget the stats just watching the game. What stood out to me was that the Lakers they were having a hard time first and foremost getting the Lake of the Clippers to miss right? They were trying to get stops and they were struggling to do that. But when they did how many times do they give up offensive rebounds either 13 offensive rebounds for the Clippers? And so that is demoralizing for a defense when you work and you work and you work and you grind and finally you get a stop you get somebody to miss wage and then you give up the offensive rebound and you have to do it all over again. And so thirteen offensive rebounds to the Clippers combined with their field goal percentage already being high. That's a death sentence.
We are spending more on smartphone apps than ever before
"More signs that we're spending more in the app store. I told you yesterday of global numbers from any those had folks spending record amounts in apple's app store as well as the google play store both seeing revenue growth of forty percent in the first quarter of twenty twenty one with combined revenue of thirty two billion dollars. Now a piece from tech crunch has new data from sensor tower estimating how much iphone and one assumes ipad users are spending on apps here in the states according to the center tower estimates iphone users in the us spend an average of one hundred thirty eight dollars on apps and twenty twenty. A number of the firm expectancy grow. It's kind of funny but not there was a piece ice. On apple's read out oh that had goldman sachs analysts hall being so rod hall. I couldn't bring myself to bring you the report blending down. He still has a cell rating on apple shares. That's partly because he sees op store revenue taking a dive as the country. Reopened post covid. Nineteen so he can't imagine apple doing well but he has no problem imagining things getting back to normal so fast. It hurts apple's line. That's beyond imagining for center tower. They say the record up spend by consumers ends one twenty twenty was driven by the great hunker down. And guess what's going to drive growth in twenty twenty one. According to the report senator tower tells tech crunch it expects the trend of increased consumer spend continuing twenty twenty one when it projects consumer spend per active iphone in the us to reach an average of one hundred eighty dollars. This will again be tied at least in part to the left caused by the pandemic and particularly the lift and pandemic fueled spending on mobile games because right mobile games where the big winner in twenty twenty
New York state legislature passes bill to legalize recreational marijuana

COVID-19 highlights Alaska Native water and sanitation needs
"This is national native news. I'm antonio gonzales. The pandemic has highlighted. Water and sanitation needs in alaska. Native communities where lack of infrastructure has already had significant health impacts according to a health official alaska. Native tribal health consortium interim president. Valerie davidson testified. Virtually this week before. The senate committee on indian affairs on water infrastructure needs davidson says. Many families in rural communities do not have running water to help prevent the spread of covid nineteen constant hand washing and cleaning davidson says more than forty percent of alaska native homes lack running water. Many communities typically have a washer area building. It's one building that combines water-treatment laundromat twelve and showers at the entire community uses and what that means from a practical perspective is that Those communities hall their water from the washington area in a five gallon clean bucket and we hall are raw sewage from our home in a different five gallon bucket and unfortunately Our communities continued to be unserved simply because of the high construction costs among recommendations davidson. Says they desperately need at least one billion dollars for sanitation construction in future legislation and resources to preserve what infrastructure is already in place. Wisconsin governor. Tony evers has signed off on the ho chunk. Nations plans to build a casino just north of the illinois border danielle creating reports. Federal law gives governors the power to block or approve off reservation casinos. The tribes plans include one of the largest casinos in the state. Along with the convention center indoor waterpark and a three hundred room hotel.

Yes, our workdays are getting longer
"As we've all learned over the past twelve months due to the pandemic tools like zoom in slack at made it a lot easier to get our work done without being in the office but there is a downside to all this money. You're right bret. It feels like your workday has gotten a lot longer and if you feel that way you're not alone because we have tech nearby to help us work. It's become a lot harder to call it a day at the end of the day which we never get to. Sometimes joining now is usa today. Tech reporter terry collins who wrote a story about our longer work days that you can read on tech dot usa today dot com terry. Good too heavy back in man. How bad is it Man well thanks for having again and bread. I appreciate it. It's bad because you know it just comes down to the to be having you know for many of us. We restarted decide when it's time to turn off the switch. It's one of the things we're all experiencing you know and we may be in denial about it for wine. A urine pandemic grape will be working and having jobs in order to pay our bills liberal lives and whatnot and then to. it's just also been a great distraction. Take our minds off of well. We'll still in this pandemic you know trying to ward off trying to be safe from this deadly disease subjects in my story Tina schweiger said quote sometimes to take a shower. Or sometimes i don't. It's still not to do things because of kobe. And if you enjoy working ten scale it up you'll say oh i'll do a bit more. Research knocked email out. She basically said it's very easy to slip out of work. My story i mentioned a harvard business school study of more than three million people worldwide said average workdays increased by almost forty nine minutes from the pandemic early stages now by forty percent and a gartner study damaging story about forty percent. Say the workdays become longer and and gonna research spoke to Alexa cameron said turn workdays are somewhere between the two or three hours longer when we were back mcgrew working in the office. So that gives you an indication that some many ways we were we are working longer. So are there specific trends. That experts have spotted that are pointing to why we're working longer days while we're all remote while some of those reasons. Are you know we have problems disconnecting and we have like digital attractions Overloads hurt bringing noise. We were as as i was talking and the research. I spoke to mix to working longer. It's well said up that there's a growing consensus that That we're we're more more times in stressful working together working Apart from where we were in person and it one of those reasons were having more virtual meetings in debt therefore to be harder to the gate coworkers body language there's more vigil visual information to adjust included slide shows graphics and also being seen on camera curbs need to have you know quote unquote an on air personality. Well that yeah. I think i've felt that way to you. Know yeah hold on you know we get more phone calls for tax. Were emails more messages. Almost what you said. Mike and and you know we are seeing each other in a workplace. So we're always just have this no always on mentality. Why also wonder if you know. Sometimes since i'm working at home i take a break to put a little andrea. Enter to go make a sandwich. And then i feel guilty. When six o'clock comes that. I'm don't stick around longer to any advice. These folks gave you that you found from people that you interviewed that. I'm how to cut back on some of these extra forty nine minutes or two to three hours depending on what craziness year involved in. Yeah yeah they. We should really try to take a break one possible. Whether that's a series of by timothy breaks across the day edition of maybe taken an hour hour long lunch at teachers said than done especially in our line of work. I like one of my subsequent story. Kelly christoffersen who works at a houston based opera company. Said that quote we were just ourselves becoming available as multiple worse are always online whether we admit it or not. And i said we're more vulnerable. And says that i guess is more of a share experience through the pandemic raw trying to adapt and get through it. She example Talked to her depth shit april meetings on on platforms or you can zoom will meet. Microsoft teams webex. Her meeting her. I mean again at seven and then she purposely disconnected by pm and she's doing virtual the following day she tries to go poor rhyme or take a walk and she has her poem with her but she tries to not take a look at her. Feel it when when it's going up. She wants to check. Take that break and so we just have to just try to find the strength to know when when to step away and there are some employers. Who are trying to help do that. As well as i mentioned a company in iowa tech engineering company in austin texas there were gonna initiative to create a better work life balance one things. They've done in begay their workers two weeks off without impacting their vacation time and some of the departments are tested. A no me fridays. It's as we've got into this a year ago to work remotely and we've also got a way to continue to work remotely but also without jeopardizing our welby. I'm sure a lot of listeners would love a no meeting monday in a no meeting tuesday and meeting wednesday and run down the week but thanks as always for joining us. It was great having you and look forward to having you on again. Big appreciate it
Silly and Misleading Retirement Calculators
"I think the main reason people seem amazed at the idea of retiring at age. Thirty forty or even fifty is the lack of real information on early retirement. In general if you type retirement calculator into a search engine these days and enter some stats about yourself. You will find some very strange assumptions. That are guiding you to think you need an absolute load of money to retire for example. I was once working through such a guide in a magazine from northern. Trust a bank that caters to the wealthy. It went something like this. Consider your goals for retirement. What life events do you need to be prepared for. The following table lists average cost children's and grandchildren's university education. A hundred thousand dollars per child children's and grandchildren's weddings twenty five thousand dollars. Assisted care facilities a hundred thousand dollars per year. Medical costs funeral arrangements. Twenty five thousand dollars trust funds for loved ones esteem and legacy planning and charitable foundations. 'wow looks like you're well into the millions before you even get to buy yourself some groceries. Another retirement calculator on cnn. Dot com has various parts to fill out dropdown boxes pre filled with hand values like retiring at age sixty five and needing seventy percent of your maximum pre retirement income constantly for the rest of your life. The drop down box with seventy percent in it did not even offer a value lower than forty percent. This percentage of income concept is one of the most anti mustache ones out there if you make two hundred thousand dollars per year just before retiring this experience. Corrupt you so much that you need a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year for the rest of your life or is it possible to maintain the same luxury standards of a person who has a merely comfortable income like forty thousand dollars per year. This goes back to the ideas of the get what you need posting. I made recently and that is why not go for maximum happiness rather than maximum consumption. I propose that maximum happiness is achieved at a spending level where you live in a comfortable space. Eat healthy foods and get to do lots of active and stimulating things with friends. That doesn't have to cost a hundred and forty thousand dollars per year or even fifty thousand dollars per year for most of us the other assumption they push on people is a very low rate of savings they assume you will less than the annual limit on 401k contributions. And don't say much about what to do if you save more than that which the high income person mentioned a few paragraphs ago could certainly do so these banks and mutual fund companies will continue to tell you that you need millions of dollars to retire because it benefits them for you to invest your money with them. Luckily it's a harmless bit of tom foolery since the saving benefits you as well but the disservice they do is in scaring people out of dreaming to save faster or to think about much shorter time horizons like tenures instead of just plain old age. Sixty five so. I'll give you a quick retirement calculator of my own adult couple with no kids or whose children are. Grown can live very comfortably on forty thousand dollars per year and retirement. My own family lives very comfortably with one child on somewhere. In the twenty seven thousand dollar range you can shoot higher or lower depending on what level of luxury water pursue twenty. Two eighty thousand dollars is a good absolute maximum sane range. But if you don't want to calculate everything out just go for forty thousand dollars and figure out how to make your savings produce that for you for a single person. It might be difficult to slice in half because you lose some benefits from sharing a house in car but you can come close to quick early retirement budgets number one in early retiree couple lives on thirty thousand dollars per year. Earning five thousand of that combined in part time luxurious post retirement careers. The remaining twenty five thousand dollars per year is generated by their savings. Six hundred and twenty five thousand dollars of total savings are required to generate this amount of passive income using the four percent rule number two an early retirees single person leaves on twenty five thousand dollars. Earning ten thousand dollars on his or her many career. Fifteen thousand dollars per year is required from savings which calls for a nest egg of about three hundred and seventy five thousand dollars. I'm working on some much more detailed and exciting sample budgets using real numbers for my own spending experiences before and after retirement
The Bakery AI Being Used For Cancer Research
"There's a bakery chain in japan that offers dozens of different kinds of pastries danishes. Donuts croissants sandwiches you go down a cafeteria style line. Pick what you want. Put it on a tray and when you get to the register to pain you put your tray on top of a backlit rectangle screen shows an injury of your train with bright green lines around each item it recognizes each item from among the dozens of pastries on offer at the bakery and then correctly charges. You how does it do that. You'd imagine some kind of relatively recent developments in deep learning neural networks. But in fact it's a more grown technology that got its start. In two thousand seven led by a man named hisashi kombi the new yorker recently profiled combine work with the bakery and how the technology he developed is now being deployed in many other sectors including cancer research. So let's start with the bread problem. Japanese consumers like lots of options and bread is no exception market. Research in japan showed that a bakery that offered a hundred different options sold twice as much as a bakery that offered only thirty and that unwrapped baked goods sold better because people perceived them as fresh but without the wrapping. You don't have labels or barcodes on the pastries so then you've got employees who have to memorize hundred different pastries and this slowdown lines. Because workers would often mix things up or have to take time remembering which peachtree was which not to mention. They handled each unwrapped pastry individually. So it wasn't exactly the most sanitary so this chain wanted to automate the process somehow and they turned to comedies company. Brain to help them out. Rain had already been working for twenty years on finding ways for computers to see something that was long one of the biggest challenges of artificial intelligence. The new yorker explains it really. Well quote as i write. This can look up at my shelves. They contain books and skin of yarn and a tangled cable. All inside a cabinet whose glass enclosure is reflecting leaves in the trees outside my window. I can't help. But parse the scene about a third of the neurons and my cerebral cortex are implicated in processing visual information but to a computer. It's a mess of color and brightness in shadow. A computer has never untangled. A cable doesn't get that glasses. Reflective doesn't know that trees sway in the wind. Ai researchers used to think that without some kind of model of how the world works in that was in it. A computer might never be able to distinguish the parts of complex scenes. The field of computer vision was zoo of algorithms that may do in the meantime and quotes over the last decade this has changed as deep learning and neural networks have been applied and tweaked in real world scenarios. Siri google translate and alpha. Go all rely on deep learning with layers of simulated neurons and their honed by things like tagging people in photos on social media and picking out street lights in those prove. You're not a robot tests on website forms but especially without that kind of passively crowd sourced assistance quoting again. The drawback of deep learning is that it requires large amounts of specialized data the deep learning system for recognizing faces might have to be trained on tens of thousands of portraits. And it won't recognize address unless it's also been shown. Thousands of dresses deep learning researchers therefore have learned to collect labeled data on an industrial scale and quotes and for brain the bakery chain not only with the frequency with which the bakery chain changed their offerings. Make such data required for learning. The new pastries be untenable. They were also several years too early to even consider using deep learning so they built their own system using lots and lots of algorithms by two thousand ten. They built a system with ninety nine percent. Accuracy across fifty types of bread tackling problems like different pastries that look remarkably similar and the same pastries that look different when one is baked. More or one got squished. As developing the back light the pastries have to be placed on to keep the lighting consistent even though they did have to also build a mathematical model to account for inconsistencies in color when it comes to bake times rather than showing assistant thousands of photos of each pastry as one would with a deep learning system they manually tweaked and honed the algorithms on each doughnut and danish until they got it right but their system learns to win. The system isn't sure instead of those green lines around each item. It shows yellow or red lines and prompts the user to select from some suggestions or manually input the product quoting again show bakery scan a pastry never seen on earth and it'll recognize the next one of its kind about forty percent of the time according to brain after just five examples it is ninety percent accurate and after twenty. It's nearly perfect. Moreover whereas deep learning systems are relatively inscrutable. You can't look at a neural network and say exactly why a decision emerged from it bakery scans judgments based as they are on hand engineered system or more particularly if the system. Miss identifies something. You can figure out why these days. It's unusual to develop in the way that brain developed bakery scan. The approach requires a mastery of fine details. It is in spirit artisanal. It takes years during which parameters must be tuned. Special cases accounted for deep learning relieves. You from having to understand how the seasons affect shadows in a donut hole you merely plug enough examples and the network figures it out and with deep learning. The same brain can accomplish different tasks when you feel different. Data deep mind. The alphabet subsidiary used data sets to train a single neural network to beat humans at chess shoghi and go systems that depend on domain specific knowledge as bakery scandal need not just new data but new filters new features in new algorithms before they can be used elsewhere and quotes nonetheless. The technology behind bakery scan now housed under the umbrella. Name of ai scan has gone on to be used in applications as far flung as distinguishing pills in hospitals to counting the number of people in eighteenth century woodblock prints and even spotting incorrectly wired bolts in jet engine parts but the most impressive application came in two thousand seventeen when quoting again. Dr louis pasteur's center for medical research in kyoto saw a television segment about bakery scan. He realized that cancer cells under a microscope looked kind of like bread and quotes. I love that observation but he was right. Ai scan has now been working for a few years on fine tuning their cancer cell detector. Saito a scan now. Being tested at two hospitals is able to look at an entire microscope slide and identify potentially cancerous cells with ninety nine percent accuracy based on features like the color tone size and texture of the nucleus and all round -ness of the cell as they continue to grow and build on their original system. Brain has had to bring in deep learning once recently when covid nineteen pushed bakery owners to start wrapping their pastries and individual packaging. Brain used a deep learning to help their bakery scan system still be able to identify the pastries behind the reflective plastic
We don't have enough computer chips
"The pandemic cause lots of shortages from personal protective equipment to laptops bicycles but one supply shortage. Could slow down the economy for months. Even after covid is gone. That's the global shortage of chips. Not lay's chips but semi conductor chips the types of silicon power everything from our computers to our cars recode rebecca. Hi awhile has been covering the shortage. Hair becca hey so. This feels like the sort of niche problem. But semiconductors are in everything so tell me what exactly a semi conductor is. Semiconductors or ships are basically the building block of all the devices that we're using today. You know the computers in your refrigerator or the computers in your car phones and many computer. All of that is being made with these tiny little chips. That are powering these technologies and the really important. because we don't just need them for entertainment. We need them to work and learn and especially during the pandemic when we're doing all of these things from home and you not only have your devices at school or your office. Many people also have a full second Electronics setup at their house and what kind of problems is a chip shortage. Going to cause like talk me through. How does this play out in in the world that we experience in the world. We care about in everyday life so broadly. The increase in demand for electronics in general means that we don't have enough chips actually make those electrons so if you weren't getting a laptop on time or a phone on time that you really needed that's how it would affect you. But in the united states there's this particular challenge that's popped up with the automakers. Obviously automakers are really important and the shortage in chips is actually delaying production of cars and some models from gm or actually not going to be running with an advanced fuel technology system right now because the carmakers can't get the chip that they need so we're seeing idle workers in the united states. Some workers being laid off because of this chip shortage. But you know it's not just cars. Samsung is talking about delays with their phones their medical device makers who have asked for help because they also are worried about the chip shortage. So this is really a very very big issue for all sorts of things that we do told about why this is happening. And how did covid cause or accelerate the shortage in the first place so the primary cause for the shortage is the increase in demand in an industry. That isn't that flexible. In terms of how much it can make talking to semiconductor. They say the lead time can be you know over twenty twenty five weeks to make one of these chips so it's not an an industry that can just flip. The switch in terms of of making more another challenge is that we're dealing with incredibly complicated supply chains and there are just a few companies that have the infrastructure and very very expensive infrastructure to make these chips but they need to get materials from other companies. There's also a he does some trump tara trade policies that are making the market. Even little bit more constricted. The us has not really developed a very strong backup system of its own supply. Chain has just twelve percent of global manufacturing in the sector and you used to have nearly forty percent back in the nineteen nineties so we really haven't focused on our own. Us domestic manufacturing of these chips. Which sort of is making a lot of people nervous right now. Especially you know the car makers but you know all sorts of Device makers in the united states right now and. What can we do about that. We can't go back from twelve percent of forty percent overnight. What are people who think about the future of the auto industry governors people who have jobs and the line people who have angry customers calling. What are they doing about this. The biden administration has ordered a giant review of the semiconductor supply chain part of a broader effort. That he's focused on and focus on his campaign as well to sign a boost the resilience of us supply chains. And for you know. We're in the midst of this now. But there's going to be one hundred day review of the semiconductor supply chain. And that's doing a lot of research with all the different chipmakers trying to figure out like where you get these components. What happened in this disaster scenario and really scoping out what this actually looks like. There is legislation that some people say really needs to be funded. That would actually incentivize building. High tech manufacturing in the united states for chips hasn't been funded yet. But that's something that some chipmakers really really wanna see but you know taking the step of the us government actively incentivizing companies to go away from building these trips abroad where it is cheaper. And they've done so for economic reasons and having them chips in the united states. That's a pretty big statement and that's going to be a lot of money and it doesn't always work out. well you could end up with empty factories factories. That aren't being used three years or five years down the line and for customers. What can we do beyond expect our products to take longer to get to us. You know in the gm case you might get that product but you might not get it with a feature that you really wanted mentioning the advanced fuel technology system which means that if you were trying to buy one of those gm trucks you might be paying a little bit more for gas in. That just might be the compromise. But you know it's a reminder to really pay attention to supply chain
Deutsche Bank Is Still Hot for Apple Shares

Unpacking Inequities in Unemployment and Economic Recovery
"I am marcellus co bari. A senior fellow in the global economy and development program here with a sustainable development spotlight as part of the greater recovery from cove nineteen. The biden administration has an opportunity to tackle three into related challenges facing the american economy. The first one is unemployment. Even as unemployment rates have gradually fallen. Since last april the labor force was a whole has shrunk. We still have ten million fewer workers employed today than before the pandemic and because covid nineteen proportionately disrupted sectors like cleaning hospitality and food services high contact sector that also typically pay low wages. The workers most affected are more likely to be black hispanic female anion second even before the pandemic made things worse the. Us labor market was incredibly precarious. Almost half of the american workforce some fifty. Three million people were working in low wage jobs. Earning on average eighteen thousand dollars a year. These workers also see very little upward mobility looking at the transition of some twenty million workers in the lowest paid jobs. We found the low wage workers sticky for every two years or worker remains in lower work their chances of escaping get cut in half and third. The us just doesn't invest enough in infrastructure. We spent just over. Two percent of gdp on infrastructure while european country spend five percent on average in china around eight percent this lack of investment hamper productivity in long-term growth by looking at new infrastructure proposals to a workforce lands. The administration has the opportunity to address the precarious low wage labor market and speed up reemployment while providing much needed infrastructure like broadband. Roads and bridges. Should be the primary goal. We think that the jobs that go into it can make all the difference to workers hit hardest in this crisis in a new policy. Brief we provide an example. What this analysis might look like we use data from hundreds of thousands of real occupational transitions in the last twenty years to answer some questions. That may help policymakers prioritize and adapt projects to maximize their workforce in impact. I absorption how many what kind of workers will new projects employees each will require a unique occupational mix and occupations employed different kinds of workers take broadband an eighty billion dollar investment. The amount proposed in clyburn. Bill would enjoy about two hundred thousand workers over the course of a year in occupations like telecom line installers electronics engineers. Most of them eighty five percent can be sourced from currently unemployed and underemployed people from the telecom construction industries. These workers tend to be older wider in mail. So policymakers might consider a diversity inclusion strategy when hiring for infrastructure projects second. How good will be the recovery from the two thousand and eight recession left too. Many workers behind the quality of jobs created and who has access to them matters if we want to make sure the recovery for the economy also means recovery workers given the urgency to accelerate. Reemployment policymakers may favor investments that create jobs with low natural barriers to entry and that provide living wage basic labor protections instability here infrastructure. Jobs to well. They generally pay more than the national medium offer opportunities for upward mobility and are accessible to workers without a college degree. Third what specific reskilling may be required if we assume that the two hundred thousand jobs in broadband are created in year. One we find there are not currently enough unemployed and underemployed workers to fill about fifteen percent of the jobs created. The potential shortages aren't highly technical jobs specialized telecom industry. These jobs pay well and many workers would benefit from the opportunity to learn the skills needed to fill up. This type of analysis can help maximize the long term impact of these investments on the workforce and informed local reskilling efforts. They can help follows. He makers prioritize projects that can absorb locally displaced workers plugging abandoned oils for instance not only can reduce harmful methane emissions but maybe helpful to workers in places like pennsylvania transitioning from fossil fuels. There are precedents for programs like this. During the great depression federally funded infrastructure investments amounted to six point seven percent of gdp at speak it provided paid work for up to forty percent of unemployed americans equivalent to about four million jobs today. So what we're thinking about the great new bridges and broadband will end up with. We also need to be considering the people who build them and how. This is a massive opportunity to really break ground on both our economic recovery and to reconcile with labor markets card by equity and lack of opportunity.

Broadly a lawyer or regulator wanted to interpret statutes like that one could quite plausibly Assume that this would include some of the largest Chinese companies and some of the largest Chinese banks would it'd be wrapped up and so this would prevent Us banks and and other banks from potentially servicing those those point one of the areas. Where you've seen this a lot You saw a lot before. Corona was in two thousand and nineteen if there was a lot of US dollar raising by Chinese banks that need to raise capital We saw just recently that the bank capital Chinese banks declined to long-term low. It's now just above nine and continuing to define That's a real problem. They need large amounts of funding and a lot of that is is coming by Secondary offerings in various Convertible in Hong Kong. So if they cannot raise you all funding because of sanctions or new legislation That could cause real real problem. So Chris about thirty seconds give us a sense of is there any recourse for the people of Hong Kong here? Or is this kind of a of complete to be quite frank unfortunately There does not seem to be a lot of recourse with regards to China China seems to have made a decision.

Asserting ever more control over Hong Kong is seems to be kind of a trend here and it doesn't seem to be according to Professor Balding much that Hong Kong can do here so but certainly ratcheting up the tensions between the US and China So we'll have to see how this plays out but again the China.

"And you've got three of them that appear to be a step ahead of everyone else. Sort OF IN PHASE ONE PHASE. Two clinicals right now MODERNA. Oxford University and in Novak's the the idea here is that given the pace that that a handful companies are making and the pressure. I think that the FDA self-imposed feels to try to get something out there. We could have a vaccine by by the end of this year. And so if you've got an antiviral drug and and and one or more vaccines That potentially is going to blunt. This dreaded second wave that we're trying to avoid now the risk is that these antivirals crap out that we don't get a medical response and that we do get the second wave. That's going to have a deleterious impact on the reopen. Connie economic growth and and I would suggest stock market performance as well with the markets pricing. And now I think is the fact that we are making medical progress on this drug development and the thinking is something is GonNa is GonNa shake free by Thanksgiving all right. So what are you? How are you positioning? We have maintained three percent equity overweight With a focus on a domestic large cap growth and domestic small CAP Those areas have done pretty well. Here led by healthcare and technology. One area that we've liked it hasn't participated up until now has been financials But just in the last week or so we're starting to get sort of catch up trade That you folks have been talking about you know. Some of the more economically sensitive categories like financials industrials consumer discretionary energy etc So we we've been sticking with With the growth and the quality But we're watching this catch up trade pretty closely. What would it take free to change that view especially given the fact that the vaccine scenario that people are expecting that Anthony Fauci sort of raised the specter of yesterday that it could be approved? Something could be approved by end of this year has been called into question by the likes of the Merck. Ceo who came out and said this seems really ambitious to us. Well and I think that's exactly the point if we do not make the medical progress that we think we're GonNa make on the vaccine front and as a result end up with this disastrous second wave which forces us to shut the economy down again and extend the recession which we think is contained in the first half through the back half of the year. That's not in our expectations. We think the because of the reopening that's going on we're GONNA have positive third quarter growth over second quarter positive corporate earnings in the third quarter versus the second quarter. That's our base case. So if if those things don't happen if the economy gets shut down because of the second wave because we don't make the progress on drug development that we think we're making then that's going to cause us to go back to the drawing board so just real quickly. What do you make China here? That looks like the tensions really are starting to ramp up here..

I kept thinking imagine Donald Trump sitting there watching Busta rhymes rapping on science. That's crazy. It is interesting because there is sort of an attempt to kind of now co-opt it, right?

And don't let anybody find me. And you say, okay. And you hide me. This is what happened the Russians robbed the Bank. They stole something. Trump was told. Hey, they robbed the Bank. Don't you know, if you find out you gotta let us know because they're gonna try to disrupt our election, and you go. You don't say anything, you know, you've hidden the the criminal, and you don't say anything. So you are aiding and abetting a crime. You're an accessory after the fact and you're obstructing Justice by not telling the authorities. What you know and Trump's campaign was they were they were briefed. Yeah. They knew that the Russians had committed a crime, and they hit it from the public what they knew because they were benefiting from it though. We're benefit that's very simple way to look at. And that we saw we saw all that happen. And seeing all that happened. I think is an important thing. Because there is this thing where the Trump team just as no Kellyanne Conway just that. There was no contact with Russia. There were numerous contacts questions that are documented in some of the finest reporting that we've seen in the modern age. But now she's saying, oh, no there were not one hundred contact with Russians that we know about. And there. May be many more. This is the gas sliding on steroids. You've got a that's the way our terriers work. They want you to believe something you saw didn't happen. And so you've got not only Trump who's a master at it. And just says it over and over again. But you've got Fox News except for Napolitano. Yeah. Probably gonna get fired. Soon. But you've got Fox News, basically, I chunk of the mainstream media backing that up. You've got the Kellyanne Conway's Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and now you've got bar doing the same thing. So you're getting a full frontal assault of gas. Sliding and it's very tough for the public to figure out. What's true? And what's not true? There's there's a lot of reporting.

"But I think this again highlights that some media outlets are more concerned about a fending these Trump voters, then they are about speaking the truth, and even in the on the heels of this and the aftermath of bar summary. You still see all these panels and curiosities about where does know maga- countries stand on this, and how do people feel about this? And this is again, something you've seen consistently for the past two years. And I don't know. I don't remember this curiosity about Obama voters. I don't remember people sitting around wondering how Obama voters felt about every little issue consistently. So again, it's a disconnect with the media, and they are consistently out of step with the demographics in the way that the country is changing very quickly, Eric, I know, this is a big issue for you. Because the when be bar with if redacted Muller report comes out, how might the media treat that differently. Well, I think I think I think the. the reduction battles going to drag on for months, you know, this idea that we're finally going to get the report, I don't think is accurate, and look I don't think the report is going to be eighty percent different than what bar said. I think we're gonna see interviews or we're gonna see grand jury testimony. I think we're going to get way more context for four hundred page report than a four page press release, but the redaction guarantee, you know, it's not going to be a clean report. The change. You know, we could go bar said this is what I'm gonna redac- and then a week later. He adds he adds a whole new category. What he's going to redecked. Yeah. And I think the challenge I give you the last one of this Jamila is whether or not the American people will ultimately get a narrative on what Robert Muller believes happened. If the reductions hide the bad stuff exactly what we need is fully unredacted report. And that's what Nancy Pelosi requested. And frankly, that's what American people deserve. Really the first is role is to question authority not to accept a narrative. And that's what they need to get back to doing. It's difficult. One Jamila Smith Eric Boehlert, Tiffany cross for non Ahmadi. Thank you all very much coming up. Rob reiner. Rob Reiner has a few things to get off his chest. And he joins us do that next. When the president says that total exoneration on obstruction Kellyanne. That's just not true. The president is probably comparing that report and the ultimate conclusions of no conspiracy. No collusion. No, contact with any Russian out of campaign that I manage into its final phase and have always been offended that anybody would think that we would cheat lie steal or talk to any Russians. That's ridiculous. And always was. Well, that sounds like another case of alternative facts to me. And while this may play well with Trump's base. I'm sure it does NBC news poll shows that those who think the mullahs report clears Trump are in the minority now is rob Reiner filmmaker and activist co founder of the committee to investigate Russia, and rob thank you so much for being here for it's always good to see you. So let's talk about the outcome of this report because we were just talking in the break a lot of people put everything on Robert Muller. A lot of people in the resistance that Muller will save us. And then when the report from William bar came out, the conflict of that with the mobile report sank a lot of people spirit. The report. So we don't know what's in there. But Muller had a very very narrow charge was to find conspiracy. Whether or not there was and the other was to discover whether or not that those are structured of Justice conspiracy is a very very specific crime. And it requires a quid pro quo at requires cooking up something we're going to cook something up that may or may not have happened. But in order to find out whether it happened it takes years of counterintelligence investigation to figure that out. But put that all aside, I'm gonna make it very simple. Forget we don't know..

"This anti Trump at Bah time to get rid of the Baltin. I've noticed last few months. He's starting to push views. To the left of the left. I mean, the the reaction inside the Trump world was that you mustn't say anything of the no collusion. So judge Napolitano sort of straight out of that bubble and he got hammered for it online. Yeah. Heaven forbid, you actually at the actual truth. You know, obviously, Fox News this basically operated as the facto state television since before even the Trump administration. So I think that they're behaving and their fans are behaving as as you know, as as they should. But I think the larger point here is that the bar letter enabled the right to essentially act in two ways one is that, you know. The president was able to act as if they were exonerated as if it was exonerated. And then they were also able to act as if they were able to change the subject, and the press actually was able to help with that second point. And frankly, that's that that's the point in which the price should be held accountable. And the challenge a challenge air Kohler is that the initial reporting if it's just based on the bar letter bar letter says that Donald Trump has been exonerated, essentially. And that he himself William bar did some of the exonerating does that he took that upon himself. That's what the letter says. So the media has to report, I guess reporting. What he said let me play some of the early. Some of the early CNN coverage. This was not to believe it or not to call specifically. But this is the way the coverage in the in the in the initial go rhino around. This is a win for this president who for now two years has been screaming. There was no Russia collusion. He is backed up by the Muller. But in fact, he was backed up by bar. And so that was the challenge it took a few hours before people talking about the mole report became people talking about the bar report. Yeah. I mean, the only really accurate headline would have been Trump's attorney general claims Muller report clears the president. I didn't really see that headline anywhere. I thought the coverage was kind of reckless in dangerous. I mean, we had journalists blindly accepting the word of a Trump administration official. This is the Trump administration that has lied about everything for two years. And specifically an attorney general who is put in that position because he had telegraphed to Trump. You will never be indicted for obstruction of Justice. If I am. Attorney general that is his job literally. And so low and long the whole we got this bar press release that says no obstruction of Justice in everyone runs with New York Times says, you know, this was a powerful boost for Trump and his reelection and things like that. I mean, can you imagine if Janet Reno put out a four page statement on the star report during the Clinton nineties, everything's fine. I'm gonna I'm gonna put this in locking key. I might release it in a month. I mean, the New York Times would have published their own articles of impeachment and the newsroom would have marched it up to the steps of the capitol. I mean, it was really reckless. I think and quickly a continued through the week. We're the press kind of pretended. They've read the mullahs report. You know, the mullahs report is out the molar report confirms. No one had read it on a scale of one to ten Trump trying to bury the mullahs report was basically, a two for a lot of depresses does most important government report, probably in the last twenty five years, and no one's ready yet, and you know, tiff.

"No collusion. Then. That's of course, despite no-one having read one word of Muller's report only bars four page interpretation, but that didn't last long some legal analysts began poking holes in bars letter and the focus shifted to one of the field lines quoted directly from the Muller report itself saying that Donald Trump had not been exonerated on obstruction of Justice as the week went on at least one legal analyst in the world of Trump TV this time, FOX business went way off message agreeing with Democrats on a crucial point. I think there congressman Schiff is correct in that report will be evidence of the existence of a conspiracy not enough evidence to prove the existence beyond a reasonable doubt in that report will be evidence of obstruction of Justice interfering with an F B I investigation for a personal gain. But not enough evidence to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt.

So that they can have a second chance at the American dream one that has been eroded, there's no international leadership coming out of this wash out of this White House, am I recently got back from Israel to look at the conflict between Israeli and Palestinian people. These are issues that directly not only threatens our national security, but we have to restore America's footing as an honest broker internationally. So I look forward to speaking with the American people to ensure that they can have the confidence in me that that can be the president reaches them. We are out of time and ask you one word and which are the first four primaries. Do you think you could actually win just one big which I think We South Carolina and the competitive. But you still got it in their way investment. Thank you, very much it and more Toyota taking more info after the break. So right on time. Three thirty five is when they said this would happen. Thirty five to forty five minutes. It happened right at three thirty five. According to this letter, one of the main conclusions is that they could not find evidence that anybody US person anybody associated with the campaign associated the president was involved with that this information campaign president has said from the beginning. No, collusion and turns out that Robert Mueller special counsel agrees. That is stunning. Welcome back to Joe as well as this show last Sunday, we know very little about what attorney general William bar would included his summary of the mother report. But just after three thirty pm that changed with the networks. Going into rolling coverage over the release of bars four page report to congress for a few hours. At least Trump got some of the positive press coverage that he's been craving a feeling of vindication after two years of screaming, no collusion..

"And that he's saying that he has he has a different perception that he is listening respectfully, but I don't know if this is going to be good enough. The Democratic Party today is a completely different party. Then when he ran the first and second time for for president. And you know, the other thing here is I'm glad you brought up the pushing out of Senator Franken, I don't know if the Democratic Party even. Has the patience anymore to entertain someone like vice president Biden new has these accusations against him running for president. It's not like we didn't know about all of the awkward situations to be to be charitable awkward situations. The vice president has put people in we've seen C-SPAN video. We've seen photographs over the years. None of that is is new. But now that he is thinking of getting into the race. This is going to be something. He's going to have to contend with not just with one statement. Which firstly I think goes a good few steps where he needs to go. But I just don't know if that's going to be enough for the Democratic Party of twenty coming up twenty twenty. You Jennifer Rubin already some of the other campaign. Some of the other candidates democratic candidates president already responded as we haven't ever gillibrand yet. But I'm Elizabeth Warren tweet out NBC's, leeann call it actually tweet out. Warren was asked about Joe Biden on the campaign trail, she said she believes Lucy Florez asked if Biden shouldn't run she says that's up to him. We have some fresh out now from Amy klobuchar Senator Amy klobuchar who also responded to these allegations. Let's listen to that. I have no reason not to believe her Jonathan, and I think we know from campaigns and from politics that people raise issues, and they have to address them. And that's what he will have to do with the voters if he gets into the race. And the reality is Jennifer each of these can campaign is going to have to respond to it Bernie Sanders. I also had to put out a statement about sort of the atmosphere in his campaign for women. So it'll be interesting to see what his response is going to be. But the reality for Joe Biden is that if he runs for president he's essentially pudding his entire life and record out there. Right. And at the moment, they're such good will toward him among base Democrats because he was brought about was wing, man. He was President Obama's wing man that will change if he runs right? He's going to have to litigate everything from this need a ill and everything else. Well, this is exactly what some Democrats people who liked co Biden people who respect Joe Biden, we're saying that there is this big issue out there. And it's not like it was a state secret as John pointed out, we all saw it constantly on. And I think what Biden is kind of sort of hinting at here. And there is well, I didn't realize what I was doing was wrong. And now, I see it and different light. Whatever that statement is there's a lot of that out there. And the question, I think is do Democrats say, you know, what I don't think we really need this right now. And do they say let's look for. Somebody else. This was one of the major issues, which I think he and others had to weigh in deciding whether he should come into the rice there are other issues as well having to do with race in the criminal Justice system. There are other issues having to do with his family. So it's not like on other candidates don't have problems. It's not like he doesn't have other problems. But this one was a big one. And you're right. I think about one you get into the race Hillary Clinton could testify to this that when you're in some other office, you may have a lot of goodwill, and then you get into the political arena. And it changes I will point out one thing, which I think is fabulous. And that is we have multiple women presidential candidates. And so now when something happens you hear multiple women speaking out, and that's a big change. Yeah. Everybody loves you till you run every hour presidency. Okay. Jennifer rubin..

"Junior's assassination and for non democratic pollster and host of the podcast. Strange days you all for being here. I gotta go to my. Pollster I for non Joe Biden is the front runner and pretty much every poll that you see out there when you talk to people anecdotally, he's the candidate that a lot of people say they want as the safe candidate the candidate. That's the shore thing in their mind for beating Donald Trump. What does this kind of allegation in your mind, potentially due to that? Well, joy it indeed is a serious allegation. And it's the sort of thing that if it's not handled appropriately properly by vice president Biden could very well stop the famous Joe mental in its tracks. There is no question as you alluded to that vice president Biden is the front runner right now. According to all of the public opinion polls, and what's driving that is the number one characteristic that a lot of democratic voters say is the be all end all thing. They're looking for the nominee or the perspective nominee who is best positioned to defeat. Donald trump. The reason I think this becomes a problem is because it raises. Questions about the duality of the image that vice president Biden wants to cast himself as a regular average Joe versus what you can just imagine team. Trump is thinking of the nicknames of creepy uncle Joe. So if he doesn't address this quickly, I think it could be a problem. One other thing joy, I think one has to ask the question while recognising the serious nature of Lucy floors, zella Gatien, I think they need to be respected and hurt out. It's very how should I put it that timing is very interesting on literally the brink of an announcement, maybe even days away from vice president Biden's announcement for the presidency that this would come out one has to look at the timing as somewhat provocative, especially given that she mentioned that the incident happened in twenty four teen. We're now five nearly five years removed from that. And this comes out literally days before.

"Mr speaker. I think it should be. I'm not sure if profound regrets to every member of this house, the once again, we have been on able to support leaving the European. The indications of the house's decision all grave across the pond. There is complete chaos as Prime Minister Theresa may remain at a standoff with Britain's parliament over how to resolve the Brexit crisis May's plan for how to exactly Britain will leave the European Union was rejected for a third time on Friday Britain has until April twelfth to come up with some kind of plan any plan. That's not looking good. It's just one of the global crises facing a world that's already without US leadership weaker western alliance under Donald Trump, which could soon see a weakened Great Britain as well. Joining us now from London is NBC. News alley Rusi an alley. Good morning to you Britain, and Brexit, if they leave the European Union without a deal spell out for this. What that would mean? Well, joy, I don't think anybody quite knows. It's an auto mess here and living memory politics policy is never been so muddled in this country. Look, I've been speaking to many citizens and business owners, primarily who are very worried about the future they're baffled as to how supposedly mature democracy like Great Britain this play such a central role in global affairs, and is one of the world's strongest economists for now anyway has gotten itself into this kale tick, disorderly mess, and they're not showing any signs of getting themselves out. Now as you mentioned despite an embarrassing third defeat threats of resignation by our own cabinet and Kohl's for an immediate resignation from the opposition and members of our own politics. Theresa May is not ready to bid farewell to the deal. She broker or her time in office hard cabinet and on herself trying to find ways to bring that withdrawal agreement back to parliament for a fourth attempt. Throw gang seems to be a dad horse prompting many here to ask the question when does determination become delusion. We have to give some credit she shown stamina and stubbornness to press ahead with the deal that she believes is the least bad of old options for the country. But that determination just isn't enough without support that she needs from inside and outside policy. Now, the Brexit timetable is slipping away collaboration is in short supply. Members of our own politics said she's over. This is a disaster labor MP's just on backing the Irish democratic policy, which she relies on support isn't backing the deal. So everything remains in the dog for her poverty and the citizens of this country. Joy quickly alley is part of the problem that Britain is turned against it. That Britain have had second thoughts. They don't wanna do it anymore. There's a poll out showing that now fifty five percent of Britons would vote remained. Is that part of the problem? That is part of the problem. I think a lot of people that voted for this voted this with is closed that they said we were sort of duped by the opposition. They gave us full numbers and fulls figures. And yes, they are having a buyer's remorse so to speak, but there is confusion here. I mean, people say if there was another referendum vote and other way, say fifty to forty eight we'd being the same confusion. Yeah. It is quite a conundrum of Great Britain alley Rusi. Thank you very much for sorting out for us. Really? Appreciate it. And coming up Joe Biden's response to this morning allegations that he kissed a female politician without her consent that story. Thanks. Joe Biden was behind me. I'm preparing myself to give these remarks, it's the very last days before the election and very unexpectedly and out of nowhere. I feel Joe Biden put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind lean in smell, my hair..

"Forty percents of jobs in the world. Yeah. Now. It doesn't mean that those are the jobs that we know about. And I know that sounds weird. What do you mean? Well, because it displaces forty percent of the jobs doesn't mean that other jobs along the way won't be created in support. Of. And new industries that pop up because of. But the one thing that's happening is is technology is moving so fast. And just like I talked to a friend of mine who's a.
