The message is going forward that we will not be loyal they were told about the evacuation. They were not put on those choppers with our american staff and they were forced many of them to find their own way through the taliban checkpoints and they get turned away at the airport and some even got turned away once they were inside. So what is the message to people working for the us. Government veterans groups are angry about the issue and then there are all the millions of afghan women who have told their daughters and been raised under this promise of a future which the taliban are already. According to ambassador revere today is denying. There are horrifying examples from provinces and from inside kabul people being targeted door to door people in safe houses being out. And all this promise of you will be safe. The taliban spokesman said stay in your home is because we haven't told all of our people how to treat women how to respect women. They also say you can go to school. You can work as long as you comply with sharia law which under their interpretation is the most extreme example of the islamic code is seen anywhere in the world i of the eighty two thousand plus people who have been evacuated about forty five forty six percent have been women and children and we've been intensely focused particularly on making sure that we can get women at risk out of out of harm's way

Bitcoin lifted its head above fifty thousand where it remained until about an hour ago at the time of this recording. Some have called this last month. The short squeeze rally referring to the fact that it was started as bitcoin held above thirty thousand dollars in the face of numerous short positions that forced those shortsellers to buy more at higher prices to keep their positions open to being a boom short-squeeze. Whatever the cause over the last thirty days. Bitcoin is up around forty six percent and bitcoins peak in the last twenty four hours around fifty thousand two hundred three month high. Bitcoin is now recorded gains for five consecutive weeks. Which is its longest winning streak in september of last year. Matthew did the co founder and coo at stack funds said that this rally unlike some of our previous frenetic moves up hasn't been driven by derivatives bets but instead by spot buying quote looking at funding in the options market. This rally still appears to be spot driven. Our expectation is that this break of psychological resistance will likely result in a rotation back to bitcoin in the coming weeks with the next target of sixty thousand dollars. This idea of a lot of spot buying driving things seems to be affirmed by data from into the block which shows that institutions in. Wales appear to have been accumulating alongside price growth.

A Powerful Approach to Keeping Remote Staff Motivated

"Paul i really appreciate you being with us. And i expect during this conversation i will learn how you like to be appreciated. Welcome thanks to you. thanks so much. I'm glad to be here. So you and gary chapman. Dr gary chapman or the co author of this book the five languages of appreciation Dr chapman wrote the five love languages. Which many many many of my listeners probably know this quite well. I'd love to hear about the connection between those those to you know sort of so gary wrote that book and then together you wrote this one. I'm sort of interested in. Was there absorb bridge from one to the other. I'm kind of interested in that. Yeah so As a psychologist. One of the things that i was involved in Was consulting with family owned businesses and dealing with the family issues that are intertwined with working together especially business succession. Planning now meeting with a family in north carolina. I'm talking to in this case the dad and the ceo and asking him how the transition plan was going. It's going well my son stepping up. I think it's gonna be fine. I walked across the hall and ss sun. Same question he says. This is a disaster. It's never gonna work. I can't ever you know please my dad and they were just get disconnecting and at the same time my wife and i were going through the five love languages probably for the third or fourth time. Because i'm sort of a slow learner. And i thought i wonder if this could work you know in workplace relationships so i pursued dr chapman actually for over a year and finally met up with him and pitch the idea and others had had sort of a unique maybe background and perspective and throughout the idea of creating this online assessment which we've created into the motivating by appreciation inventory and off it with from there good for you for staying so persistent so politics dig in you. Tell us that there are five languages of appreciation. I'd like you to go through them. One by one. And as you do. I want my listeners to be thinking about which one really resonates for you now. They'll be all kinds of will point you to resources but just be thinking about yes. That's me or no. That's not me. Because i think that'll be a helpful exercise for you to do while. You're listening to paul. Go through them. Paul great so the the names are the same as the five love languages. Words affirmation quality time acts of service tangible gifts in physical touch so but they look differently in the work setting obviously words affirmations pretty straightforward Their words that are affirming or affirming. The value of someone That we work with and you know he had over on now. Two hundred sixty five thousand people take our inventory so it has some fairly data and forty. Six percent of the workforce have words as their primary language. So it's clearly the biggest group it's still less than half of the workforce it's a big group and it's largely telling people Thanks in a very specific way of What they've done and how it's been meaningful to you in could be done orally personally could be through writing whatever you know f- times with more introverted. People clearly now In distant kinds of relationships. You don't may maybe by email or a chat or something like that but the key For words of affirmation to really be meaningful is that they need to be specific. We actually do some polling with our audience in We found out that one of the things that people don't like to hear is good job and the reason is that's a it's just too general and vague and it could be said by anybody to anybody doesn't take much thought or effort and so we really sort of teaching model of us a person's name we'd like to hear names if you riding it. Please spell it correctly and then say specifically what you value in wise important so it might be jennifer.

Challenges and opportunities of blockchain in the insurance industry

"For this podcast. We will be discussing challenges of blockchain in the insurance industry with special insights from ibm. And i'm very pleased to have mark mclauglin. Ibm's head of insurance strategy solution sales and partnerships worldwide mark. Thank you for joining us today. Could you please give our listeners. A quick introduction on yourself sure thanks lead and thanks for having me on as you said our head of strategy for the insurance vertical for ibm a teams pulled together. Ibm's hardware software services cloud and our business partners to deploy value for the insurance industry. I've been doing that myself For twenty twenty five years now. The first solution i built for the industry was artificial intelligence back in their early nineties for a large insurer here in the us and that solution is still running today which Either tells you something about our industry or something about my coding one or the other. so let's go was your coating absolutely exceptional. Not sure that's really really. No thank you for that introduction so as you know and hearing two blocks and we always ask. Our guest is first question which is what is blockchain. And how does it work the way i. Obviously i think most of your listeners. Are well aware that there is a difference between the blockchain enabled currencies like bitcoin and ripple and the actual blockchain functionality itself. The way i think of it is. It's a shared ledger. The trusted leisure. It's an ability for multiple entities. Who don't necessarily have a one hundred percent trusted relationship. They are business entities with different interests. Different goals but you can establish a common ground wear a set of documents they said of processes a set of data is maintained by a group across a business network and that is maintained in a way that is immutable Where everybody can see the changes that are going on and everybody has a record of what's going on you know whether it be you know data around contract or execution of a business process and being able to do that in a way that is trusted by all participants That can bake in features like smart contracts to help you automate some of those processes right. There's a lot of different things you can do. With the blockchain right currencies one of them but running a lot of shared business processes and other one of them and. i suspect. We'll be talking about that today right now. Thank you thank you for that. So as you are aware we've had a number of your colleagues on the inch. Blocks podcast from bos- expert within the blockchain in the insurance space. Now i'm curious to know from your personal standpoint. how would you characterize. The insurance industry's embrace of blockchain technology. Well i think high interest right. Insurers for a number of reasons are feeling the heat on innovation. Right whether you look at the you know. The forty six percent kager on tech investment. The last three years or the entry of of large-scale players like like paying on like amazon into more kind of online distributed type insurance ventures. Right whether you look at insurance being baked into other industries right when you go by airlines at the united states your offer travel insurance now as part of that process right. It's it's very different than the kiosks in the airport of old right. I think the industry knows that they have to figure out ways to connect to broader ecosystems. Knows they have to innovate and blockchain's one way to do that. There's there's definitely some great opportunities there's definitely some pitfalls but ensures you know high level of interest having a little trouble getting started in some cases and i think we'll dig into that as we go. Yeah exactly because you know we know we started our podcast mainly focus on the insurance industry in two thousand eighteen inch thousand nineteen. We spread out to cover other industries. Which is very fascinating to see the challenges and opportunities each industry have with regards to adopting mom blockchain but this is sticking for insurance for now. You know as you mentioned you had twenty to twenty five years experience in building solutions and partnerships ensures. Would you say that insurers are more or less open to embracing blockchain comparison to other previous or existing modern technologies such as cloud in ai to name a few. As you mentioned. You know you did this project in quite some time ago. How does blockchain compared to these kinds of technology. I think blockchain has great potential and as technology. I think insurers are are more than willing to embrace it. I think the challenges are the business model. Right i can take a And it and it's very easy to visualize. Hey here's here's a case. Where i could see how i might help me process a claim better. You know underwrite risk better advise in indentured. Better now actually getting it to do that is a little bit more challenging but visualize it. it's eas- right blockchain. It's a little tougher for the challenge. Isn't the tech. I think it's the use case behind the technology

Are You Underweight Chinese Stocks? Pros and Cons of Investing in China

"Are you under weight chinese stocks. Should you be. I recently got an email from a member of money for the rest of us. Plus he lives in switzerland but grew up in asia. He mentioned that he has been a long term investor in china as he analyzed his chinese equity investments in two thousand twenty. He noticed that they didn't fall. As much as stocks in other countries and the currency held its value relative to the us dollar. He went to look at his overall exposure to chinese trying to calibrate it within his per folio he noticed that relative to the size of the chinese economy which is the second largest in the world that he was underweight chinese stocks in fact the major stock indices. Msci all country world index has five point two percent in china yet. China's gross domestic product the monetary value of their output is over sixteen percent of global. Gdp trying to figure out. Well what should his weight be. He's primarily getting his performance through an a-share etf china a-shares our stock shares that trade on mainland china and trade in the local chinese currency the lon new trade on the shanghai stock exchange and the shenzhen stock exchange historically these chinese a-shares are only available to domestic investors but since two thousand three china has allowed certain institutional investors to acquire license to be able to purchase some of these chinese a share stocks for example back in two thousand fifteen vanguard. Was i allowed to buy these chinese a-shares stocks up to one point five billion dollars. It was at that time. They added chinese. A shares to their emerging market stocks index fund and etf trading nature's has typically been dominated by local chinese investors and returns have been volatile in twenty twenty though they gained forty one percent incredible performance. It was the result of the chinese economy performing better than any developed or developing economy in the world in two thousand twenty in this episode. We're going to look at. What should our weight be in china in our stock portfolio. There's definitely some pros and cons to investing in china and that's what this member was trying to figure out what what what should his weight be in. China been twenty twenty. The chinese economy officially grew two point three percent some of its weakest annual rate of growth. But the best in the world. now there's always some controversy regarding how accurate are the official economic statistics in china. I subscribe to capital economics which produces something called the china activity proxy and it's an estimate of economic growth using different metrics that they have much more confidence in and they show that the economy grew close to seven percent in the fourth quarter from four point nine percent in the third quarter. This is on a basis chinese. gdp it's gross domestic product the measure of what it produces its output of goods and services has been growing faster than many areas around the world for over a decade and as a result. The chinese economy is getting to be a larger percentage of overall global gdp in china. And this is data from. Moody's referenced an article in the wall street journal. China in two thousand ten made up ten percent of world. Gdp us in two thousand. Ten was twenty three point two percent of global. Gdp at the end of two thousand twenty. China had grown to sixteen point eight percent of global gdp while the us has shrunk to twenty two point two percent so china at its six percentage points. The us lost one percent. As i mentioned the chinese economy grew in twenty twenty and one reason it grew was because of americans that were stuck in their homes. And we're able to travel and go out to eat. And instead bought goods off. Amazon and other stores and as a result exports from china surged in november chinese exports grew twenty one point one percent compared to the prior month and exports to the. Us grew forty six percent. Despite all the trade war rhetoric new tariffs individuals. Continue to purchase things that were made in china and many. Us companies continue to make a lot of their things in china. That growth in exports certainly helped the chinese economy. The other thing that helped the chinese economy cover is day to day. Life has generally returned to normal. The country was able to better control the coronavirus and as a result people are back driving their cars. They're taking public transportation china's not kobe. Free this past week on one day the recorded two hundred and ten new covert cases the highest since march but only two hundred and ten compared to the thousands and thousands of new covid cases confirmed each day in the us. The chinese economy has rebounded because all that manufacturing of those exports has allowed migrant workers which make up about a third of the workforce to take their jobs again. So incomes are growing in china and they're also benefiting because during the early months of the pandemic the chinese increase the amount that they're saving chinese households. Increase your savings rate. Now there appear more willing to spend that savings on buying goods and services and that has helped propel the chinese economy forward.

Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?

Is Student Loan Forgiveness A Good Idea?

"Right now on the. Us government federal balance sheet there's loan receivables over a trillion dollars of student loan debt sitting there as a receivable for the fiscal year ending nineteen total assets of the federal government worth three point nine trillion of which one point one trillion was direct student loans. But here's the thing. Three point nine. Trillion in assets twenty six point nine trillion in liabilities. The difference the deficit is twenty two point nine trillion dollars. The us government is effectively insolvent. It does more than its assets. And if the us government road off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans it would just increase the level of insolvency. It would not sink. The government by any means the education department according to some private consulting work that they contract it out understand what the potential losses are on their student loans found. According to a report by the wall street journal that losses on the one point three seven dollars of student loans outstanding at the time this report was compiled would equal four hundred and thirty five billion dollars. Only nine hundred and thirty five billion would be paid back and that didn't include about one hundred fifty tonnes originated by private lenders that are guaranteed by the government each year. The government lends a hundred billion dollars to students to cover tuition to more than six thousand. Colleges and universities doesn't look at credit scores or the field of study or whether students will make enough after graduating to cover the debt. The wall street journal article reported that between two thousand five in two thousand sixteen four intent student loans. Most of them federal went went to borrowers with credit scores below the subprime threshold. That's assuming they actually had a credit score. Which at the time. That i took out my first student loan which i'll talk about a little later in this episode. I didn't have a credit score. Nor frankly i know what i was doing. But here's the thing. The consultants found out that a major driver of those losses were students. Who went on some type of income driven repayment plan. An income share to wear they only had to pay a percentage of their income and ultimately the loan could be forgiven after a number of years. If a loan isn't paid back in full because the payments are based on income in income isn't growing and ultimately the alone is written off after twenty years or so then that will lead to a loss in addition that study found that there are millions of other borrowers that would default on smaller amounts typically less than ten thousand dollars after the drop out of a community college or a for profit college one of the comments in this wall street journal article on the private consultants conclusion regarding the potential losses. For the us government. Student loan program is that taxpayers would be on the hook for this if the government off four hundred and forty billion dollars of student loans. Us government would receive less interest income and principal payments annually interest if we assume a five percent interest rate on one and a half trillion dollars of student. Loans is is only about eighty five billion dollars. now. I say only because total. Us government revenue is three point four trillion dollars. Interest income from student loans is only about two and a half percent expenditures in fiscal year. Twenty twenty six and a half trillion dollars. The deficit was three point. One trillion fourteen point seven percent of economic output or gdp nominal gdp and fiscal year. Two thousand twenty was twenty one point two trillion dollars. This deficit was fourteen point seven percent of that number the highest since the great financial crisis where the deficit was nine point. Eight percent the highest deficit ever was in nineteen forty three at twenty nine point six percent of gdp. The us ran three point. One trillion deficit in twenty twenty and the federal reserve increased the amount of treasuries on their balance sheet essentially funding that deficit. Two point two trillion dollars is the additional treasury bonds that the federal reserve bought so two point two trillion of the three point one trillion dollar deficit. These student loans are tiny percent of what the government is spending much of which the federal reserve financed indirectly. Veterans are didn't just give the money to the treasury. they went through the county mechanism of buying treasury bonds. But that's what happened. The federal reserve created the money out of thin air to purchase treasury bonds to plug the deficit now when i started hearing about forgiving student. Loans cancelling them. My impression was the student loan. Burden is as high as it's ever been. That students are struggling tremendously compared to when i took out student loans in the late eighties and early nineties. What i found was the average student loan and again this is based on data from marc canter wits. This is just the average student loan balance for graduates with bachelor's degree when they leave school in one thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-three. It was ninety three hundred dollars. Forty six percent of students had student loan debt. That's about how much i had little over ten thousand dollars in student loans. When i left graduate school today. The average student loan balance is twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars just for students. With bachelor's degrees sixty nine percent of graduating students have student loan balances. That amount going from ninety three hundred to twenty nine thousand. Nine hundred was a four point. Six percent annual increase. Now that's a burden no doubt and if it growing at four point six percent it's growing faster than inflation yet if i look at what students are making when they graduate in nineteen ninety-three or year after they graduated so in nineteen ninety-four an engineer. Starting salary was thirty thousand. Nine hundred dollars. A humanities graduate was making twenty one thousand three hundred dollars so if we compare that salary to the amount of their debt engineer made three point three times. The amount of student loan debt they had and the humanities major may two point three times the amount of student loan debt they have if we look at what engineers typically make coming out of university. Today it's close to seventy thousand dollars or about two point three times the amount of their student debt back in one thousand nine hundred. They made three point three times the amount that they owed now. It's two point three times so they own more relative to their salary but the interest rates are lower now. So they're able to handle that. But it's not this huge change that i had expected for the humanities graduate. They went from earning two point. Three times Student loan balance to one point eight times now. Part of that is pell. Grants which are grants given to low income students to essentially pay for school. I got a lot of pell grants when i went to school. That program has only grown about three point nine percent per year the maximum payout amount per student so it has not grown as fast as student debt levels. Now we can say well may be. College graduates are able to find jobs. The unemployment rate for recent graduates was five point one percent in nineteen ninety-two it was three point. Nine percent before the pandemic hit in february twenty twenty and so a greater percentage of recent graduates had jobs in early. Twenty twenty then back in nineteen ninety-two now. The unemployment rate at least in september was nine point one percent according to some data from the new york fed which suggests that yeah Graduates are struggling to get jobs. It is harder today than it was in nineteen ninety two but not that much difficult. And i don't recall calls to cancel student. Loan debt back in the early to the mid ninety s

"Van camp. There Scott Robbins. Did you see the polling out looks like it's clearly Biden versus Trump and twenty twenty. I'm waiting for the bottom to drop out now because I twenty sixteen. Left me with zero confidence in conventional wisdom finished, Dan because the conventional wisdom is yes, Joe Biden will come in. He's got the pixie dust from the Obama administration on Democrats will flock to his side. And right now, it does look like based on the polling. That's true. Forty six percent world Biden right now that yet as polling. Wow. Title. How many like three hundred and forty three candidates whatever it is. By the way, why are Democrats sexist? I don't understand it. Maybe you guys going to like me because we were told there's all these great female candidates that are running for president. They're all way behind. Well. It's because the media haven't done enough to to prop up, the female candidates or something. Are you kidding? That's what I keep hearing all the time. Here's where it stands. You got Biden at forty six percent. Second is Bernie Sanders. Wow. At fourteen percent. Couple of young whippersnappers. They're leading the way. Yes. That was our other bet David than Bernie would be in the teens the following week. I never took that bet. You didn't know? I didn't gang it. Okay. Because that did happen last week. But now he's down to fourteen percent mayor Buddha judge he's third at eight. And then it's Elizabeth Warren. Poke honestly, it's up, and then it goes down from there. I mean, you got Kirsten gillibrand at zero point zero still should number one with Beerbaum players. Tulsi Gabbard two percent Gamla Harris at six oh betas way down. He's down there with Cory Booker at three percent down. So I mean, unless something crazy happens that's a huge lead for Biden right now while eventually for Beddoe the spell he's been obviously trying to cast over we'll start to work. No, no as he's waving his arms around. You know, what happened like Mickey Mouse and Fantasia seriously man, it's people look at a guy like Beto before he opens his mouth, he looks like. Okay. Looks like a normal guy. Oh, he likes music. It's all and then you hear him speak, and then it's this empty. This guy's got nothing. As a lot of these candidates. I'm not surprised at all with Biden. So far in the lead on Biden jumping out to too big lead right now already. He's out there making some bold promises. This again, I'm tired of being right that wasn't necessary about Biden leading so far. When I was the only one predicted it. Okay. I have my moment. Go ahead. He's making a bold promise on the campaign trail, we're gonna take more money away from you. Well, that's a bumper sticker. Yeah. This is a campaign event in South Carolina. When he's talking about those evil Trump tax cuts. How boneheaded is this people say will Joe how you do all this. Well, guess what? First thing I do is going to repeal this Trump tax cut. Not a joke. Not a joke. You all you people are dying to have more money your paycheck. Aren't you? Well, because he keeps repeating this lie that a bunch of people missed out on the tax cuts, which is isn't true. There are examples of people. I mean, I've I've heard from people who for example, work in the nonprofit sector where they wind up they've wound up taking a hit because of the tax tax cuts. But it's something like ninety percent of Americans not more money in their paychecks for the last year because of these tax cuts, and you see what's happening with with the business right now the economy's on fire right now. And you don't think that has anything to do with the fact that the tax cuts through took the shackles off of private industry. Oh, of course, what it comes down to. I really do think this. It's going to be about personality because there is a certain amount of people that are going to vote for by no matter what they can complain about him. Now, he's not far left enough. All those things in the end if it's Biden against Trump. They'll vote for Biden there are people that as you know, are going to vote for Trump. And then there. The people up in the air. And even if everything's going great can they be swayed by Joe to be like, we just need us to get along. Again, the way it used to be and will there be enough people that will believe in that? And are just tired of Trump's tweets and everything else that will go to his side. I've never heard a winning formula that starts with. I'd like to tax you more. No. That is crazy starting point four nine campaign. Very surprised. That's a difficult one to get over very surprised by that. But more on the whole race a little bit later on David. You have an update on that state rep that said kill him now or kill them later. Yeah. Boertien Alabama Representative state Representative John Rogers is the guy who last week justified abortions by saying you kill not go night some non one kill right? Holy cow. Basically, if you don't let people get abortions, those children's or the children are just gonna wind up being born and go to the electric chair when they grow up a lot of kids who've gone through the adoption process who would maybe agree with that. I don't know. That's really awful thing to say unreal. And then he also said that Donald Trump junior was proved that we need abortions. Yeah. An elected official in the state of Alabama. There's a new wrinkle this story now involving democratic Senator Doug Jones of Alabama the guy who won his election only because he was going up against ROY Moore who well putting it very lightly and charitably had some problems. Hey had a couple of missteps in today. Yeah. Apparently Doug Jones called Representative Rogers a couple of times begging him to stop talking about abortion because it's hurting his chances of winning again. This is according to John Rogers who said this on the radio show. Okay. Week with me twice John. You're right. But I gotta come on. All the second said. I know you're right. Yeah. John. I know you're right. But I've got to come out against you. Okay. You campaign do the as I'm just gonna gay aided John John, John, you're killing me. I'm killing want say he's. Chest as ill. Religion. I didn't get that. He said it was heated, John, John John be quiet. Shut up. You're killing me. I'm killing him. I'm the one saying that he didn't say nothing. You don't chastise me? Like, I'm hollering and shouting because I want to hurt your re-election. Okay. Kill you still breathing that killing babies go ahead bigger than relation. This is my way so far that a sitting United States Senator called you and said that they agreed with you. But. Politically he had to step out publicly against it. Right. Well, at least we know how Doug feels. Yes. Because guys like John Rogers. They're not they're not out of the mainstream. I mean, they'd put it in terms guess that sound like it's out of the mainstream. But they're not dude. I was only half joking last week when I said there were a lot of people saying, well, at least they're being honest about their position right now. Oh, man. That's incredible. It really is. I for one just want this guy to keep talking. Oh, absolutely. I mean, that's the whole conversation that no one wants to have really with abortion and wear sciences. And what we know now that we have known in the past. And it's just a fair conversation to have it. I know the whole thought from the past is you're not going to change anybody's mind about this. It's already set. But when you start talking about infanticide and going back from there. Well, there's the heartbeat law. They're talking about Georgia. When is a baby a baby when is that a human being that needs to be protected is there a timeline on that that should be a conversation that anyone would want to engage in? It's important. Isn't it? But somebody like we don't want to have that the women's reproductive health. It's not a clump of cells. No, okay. Late term. I mean, they feel pain we noticed science. So I don't know that they want to have that entire conversation. Stank goodness. We have the bilingual van camp on board today or that bit would have completely been destroyed. Well, it was the one where it was last week when he said that Don, jR, should have been aborted that we really needed the interpreter. Because that was something. Thank. You'll be born. Was I have no idea. I was aided. That was hey, that's an honor Donald Trump junior. Did that? Thank God right on. That's how you know. I'm right because I don't know nothing. He's been right on since. He's been here him being born. That's proof of it. Right. It's a very good defense that I have for abortion right for him talking about Donald Trump junior the president's son van can't, please. Thank all, right. Well, played, sir. Can you tell me this is it somehow hateful or not inclusive to ask what he said? Because I couldn't understand it. Right. If you can't understand you gotta ask for clarification. Right. That's it. I just wanted to make sure it's almost like if you have a foreign athlete and they're being interviewed after the game. And they have their interpreter. Maybe John should have that. So everyone understands what he's saying. Right. What what was that against the mother should have aborted him when he was born? And then he would have made that stupid statement. Right. He's evidently retarded is what the Representative said that could be deemed somewhat. Well, hateful. I'm not. I'm not I take no pleasure in repeating the words that Representative Rogers said, I'm this is the job of the translator. Which by the way, Representative my rates are very reasonable. If you wanna hire me, do you.

We have to bring you the latest on the wonderful wonderful infighting between Alexandra Okaz Cortez. Nancy Pelosi today, it's been a wonderful day. It's been a great day ASC known for brilliance in with a fresh face of the Democratic Party as we like to say so fresh so face Nancy Pelosi has basically patted her on the head and say, why don't you go? Sit down sweetheart because what you're saying is dumb. She came forward with a green new deal plan. It is not a good plan and a little bit later in the program. We're going to go through her green plan, which is so ridiculous that even maisy. Geraldo, the execrable Senator from Hawaii is dunking on today is the day of dunking on AMC. And what a day it is what a fabulous wondrous festival of joy. We'll get to all of that in a little while. I let's get to the let's get to the reactions of state of the union addresses state of the union address happened a couple of nights ago, very successful for the president of the United States. The media. However, didn't like it. I know it's very shocking for you to know, this that the media didn't like it. But the truth is it did infact shifted abate. There's a really interesting piece over at realclearpolitics by taro talking about how the media talked about the state of the union address they use data from the GD L T project. Global news coverage mentioning state of the union and Trump is examined across the project sixty five monitored language from the start of Tuesday through noon on Wednesday. Forty six percents of the coverage mentioned the word wall. Just twenty percent of articles did so during the same day and a half period surrounding the year before as address the words border and borders were also incredibly popular the word immigration was only mentioned in forty percents of the coverage this year, which has remained relatively constant which means that more people are talking about the wall. People are talking about legal immigration realclearpolitics concludes. It seems last year was about immigration this year was about physical barriers to halt it. The shutdown itself was mentioned by sixty percents of coverage in the hours leading up to the state of the union, but it dropped to forty five percent during the speech and thirty percent by noon the following day. In other words, Trump took the government shutdown out of the headlines, which is what he needed to do in comparison. Just fifteen percents of state of the union coverage during eighteen event mentioned the shutdown that had preceded it fall to seven percent of the state of the union coverage right after the rapid fall and mentions of the shutdown suggests that Trump's speech succeeded in shifting the media narrative toward his administration's at priority issues. The president scored another rare victory in the twenty percents of coverage mentioned the word bipartisan compared with Joe with just thirteen percents last year. So that of course is a clear win for the president of the United States as well. Despite Trump's post shutdown at infant structure. Nobody wanted to talk about it infrastructure the big winner this year. Socialism, socialism, socialist or socialists accounted for fifteen percents of the coverage compared with less than one percent last year. That's because President Trump went directly after socialism in his state of the union address. AFC Alexandra Cortez so fresh so face accounted for a whopping seven percents of state of the union at media coverage this year, the state of the union also shifted conversation away from the Muller investigation. The term women also was mentioned a lot of the coverage, which is what Trump wants it since he was the one who brought it up in the first place. Amazingly the democratic rebel rebuttal by Stacey Abrams, which the media fawned over. There was only mentioned in about twenty percents of the coverage last year's rebuttals by Joe Kennedy, the third it garnered a similar number around fifteen percent suggesting that most people in America, don't really care all that much in the media reflect that most people don't care about the state of the union rebuttal address. Putting this all together says tarot of real clear politics. It seems from state of the union address was successful at least momentarily in pivoting the media conversation from investigations and the shutdown. And toward the domestic issues. Most important to the administration remains to be seen for how long the media are doing their best to swing it. And they tried to make the case the Nancy Pelosi. The real story of the state of the union was Nancy Pelosi sarcastically clapping for President Trump. But she said that she was not actually being sarcastic. She said it wasn't sarcastic look at what I was applauding. I wanted him to know that it was very welcomed. She was clapping right after President Trump asked the country to abandon the politics of revenge. So she basically just spat all over the media narrative suggesting she's being sarcastic to Trump that of course, was was not true. Meanwhile, the late night hosts, of course, we're very upset with President Trump over the state of the union address because late night has become just an absolute desert comedy. And now it is just bad political commentary. Stephen Colbert went after the president for rhyming during his state of the union address..

Winter Baltimore resident Adam Richardson found a six inch long crack in the windshield of his twenty seventeen Ford fusion, I didn't think it was gonna be that big of a deal. He thought a couple hundred bucks. But then he called an auto glass company. I said, hey, I've got this crack here's the make mama my car, and they said, oh, not a great sound seat. Richardson's car has front collision sensors behind the windshield replacement glass, that's different thickness or clarity can cause them to malfunction. So Richardson had to buy manufacturer approved glass, and then have sensors recalibrated to work properly. It ended up being somewhere north at seven hundred. So that was definitely worth anticipated and more than at least one in three drivers can afford for an unexpected Bill. According to triple A, the organization also recently found that cars with advanced safety. Features commonly cost twice as much to repair as low tech vehicles jet. Gonzalves king owns.

"WCBS six eighty s a week a team to talk about illegal immigration that is beyond me. Why the Democrats and some Republicans will not protect the American people are worried about eight hundred thousand federal workers, but not not the three hundred fifty million Americans reside here in the country. Go figure. Well, there's been a lot of promises are a lot of efforts being made to. Improve the immigration policies here in this country. But the truth of the matter is and we've touched on this earlier. I it seems like nothing is getting done or some cases where even regressing. Yeah. That's a good point. I accept the Trump administration. They're trying to do something. In fact, Wall Street Journal reporting today that the Trump administration starts returning some asylum-seeking illegals to Mexico. We'll have to wait for the US immigration court hearings. That's a new policy that was announced last month under the program starting at the San Diego border selected migrants will be turned back after being processed by American immigration. Authorities given a notice to appear in the US immigration court in about a month. And that's a that's a significant change. Why? Well, because of a new report out that forty three percent of all legals of free pending trial failed to appear in court in two thousand seventeen since one thousand nine hundred eighty six thirty seven percent of all illegals feel. The Tecom to trial their immigration hearing. They abscond into the population at large forty six percent of all unaccompanied children disappear from the courts forty nine percent of unaccompanied children failed to appear in the migration court. So again, once they get in and they say asylum, and then they get their immigration hearing at least most of most of the time strike half of them. Don't even bother to show up. They don't appear at all. And I mean, that's absurd. The the the fact that that the we have a system right now where instead of preventing these people from going into our society as they wait the outcome of their asylum, please we're just just allow them to go integrate into our society, and you never hear from them again.

"So what is it? We're understanding specific cancers. More like what what's the well? It's the same type of cancers are still killing people lung, colorectal prostate and breast cancers continue to be among the most common causes of cancer deaths. I counting for more than forty forty six percent of total cancer deaths. Among men and women more than one out of every four cancer deaths is actually due to lung. Cancer to him. Yeah. Which is crazy. But lung cancer rates are going down because fewer and fewer people are smoking. So again, great news. I wonder that's going to win. We figure out if jewels are are like vaping. Yeah. You know, just as bad like I'm curious to see that down as of right now. Stone. Lung cancer rates are super down. Even though they still kill one of one out of every four people. Can't start you on my grandfather. Yup. Smoked puck. Do another reason for the decline in cancer deaths is a decrease in cancer diagnosis around our diagnoses around prostate cancer, and they were getting way too many people were diagnosed with prostate cancer when they actually the cancer that they had was never gonna need need to be treated. Wasn't aggressive. Yeah. Exactly. So it wasn't an aggressive form of cancer with their it was registering positive. So it was like we were getting all these higher cancer rates by the time the cancer killed you you'd be two hundred years. Yeah. Exactly. He's you're not going to be two hundred. Yes. So I'm so they changed the screening process with that. So that does fudge the numbers a little bit. But more people are getting colonoscopy. So it is also decreasing the amount of deaths around correct. Oh panthers. Which is fantastic. But all these gains are not spread equally, obviously. So the rate of new cancer cases, and cancer deaths. Very quite a bit among racial and ethnic groups with rates generally highest among African Americans and lowest among Asian-Americans interesting. Yeah. But the racial disparities are in decline, which is fantastic news. The excess risk of cancer death in black men compared to white men has dropped from forty seven percent in one thousand nine hundred to twenty one percent in two thousand fourteen should almost cutting home almost cut in half. So it's still awful that there's this disparity based on access to healthcare of, you know, just about those big part racism all of these things. But the fact that we've cut that in half in two decades is good news. And hopefully, we stay on track or improve not rate the racial disparity has also declined with black women as well. From twenty percent compared to white women in nineteen hundred. Thirteen percent in two thousand fourteen which is great. But although the cancer death rate has remained fifteen percent higher for black Americans than for white Americans in two thousand fourteen increased access to health care through the Affordable Care Act is contributing to narrowing the scope, which is great because more and more people are getting insured across all economic spectrums. So it is reducing that gap is we'll just making everything more accessible, so cancers down is there still huge racial disparity. But we're fixing it. So overall positive story. Cancer's done is positive any day of the week. I have a irrational fear of getting colon cancer. I maybe he's not a rational. It's of rampant and men. Yeah. I my grandfather and all his brothers died of colon cancer shit. Yeah. Yeah. I I have to eat fiber regularly like every forty eight hours after eat like a fish of broccoli as I have extreme fear of colon cancer. I feel like you have a high fiber diet. Probably.

"Network. Lungs part of your weekend. You're tuned into Tennessee matters. I'm Robert wan as we get into the new year. There are lots of people that might be thinking about new paths for their careers, of course, in economy in which the job market and different opportunities are always seemingly influx. It also seems so too are some of the things that people are looking for in their next employment opportunities that's part of what we're talking about. With the guest joining us on the phone this morning. He is the director of permanent placement services for Robert Half Nashville that stands show-me. Oh, dan. Good morning to you. Happy new year to you. Hey, good morning. Robert and happy new year to you as well. Talking a little bit about the way things are going in the economy and people looking perhaps for their next opportunities whether or not they're in a position or they're just between their different opportunities. But your company put together a study. Recently, looking at some of the dynamics surrounding some of the job search is what do we know? Well, there's actually some new with with the new year starting a lot of people are making new resolutions. And our office team division has done a survey. That's quite a few people here locally as well. And and we found that forty six percent of local employees are are looking for things like fitness facilities and programs and health and wellness offered by local employers here in Nashville, which is is greater than the national average pretty significantly as well when you're talking about some of these things I ve lived here in the mid state for almost four years now, but I spent a lot of time in the on the west coast and in the bay area. And so the things you're mentioning I hear things that that I guess maybe. A lot of high tech companies were the first to really make a conscious effort not only making these opportunities available to employees really making them a highlight in a in a prominent feature to employment in these particular companies one is this what we're talking about predominantly as far as the companies that were were mentioning, and is it is it is it does go beyond. Absolutely. It is. But it does go beyond just technology. Nashville Scott, one of the lowest employment unemployment numbers in the country. So because of that it's giving employees opportunities to to find things other than just salaries that are important to them. So I as as the market titans and NS as tight as it's ever been here locally, their employees are looking for other things that are more valuable such as work life balance and health and wellness, facilities, end or providing discount. Free gym memberships in those types of things when you're looking at some of the companies that have been I guess, maybe looking at whether they're adding these things or or supplementing some of these benefits that they already have. What's your sense of how the dynamic is shifting in Nashville? Are we talking about companies that are new to Nashville that where we see? That's our running joke in the mid state, right? The the unofficial bird here is the crane because of all the construction there's so many high rises and buildings that are coming in the newer opportunities that are provided by new companies coming to Tennessee, or we talking about existing companies that are maybe just trying to keep up actually think we're talking a little about a little bit of both. I think as so many new employers are coming into the city employers are realizing that to keep your top talent right now, you have to have you have to come up with creative ways to to keep them engaged in happy. And thriving in the workplace, and and health and wellness has become that much more of a staple in this environment. So if you're a lot of times these employers, and it can be your new companies, and you're well established companies as well. A lot of times the reason they promote these opportunities as they may not I mean for one it costs them significantly less than healthcare expense. If your employees are healthy. When we're talking about some of these benefits, and and some of these perks, obviously, the fact is that for some industries and some companies these are still worlds away from a reality for for for a lot of workers. But understanding that the probably more and more companies are going to have to provide some of these these different opportunities and features and benefits. What are maybe the hot items that you you suspect people are looking for most well from an employer perspective, some of what's being offered, and and employees potential employees as well are discounted gym memberships or I played golf earlier or last week, and I played golf, and I what one of my the friends that I was playing golf with. He's rewarded substantially from his healthcare provider from an from his employer for for keeping an elevated heart rate for. For for tracking his steps those types of things. So those are some of the things that are provided fitness discount on gym. Memberships is one area that's done. Sometimes it's it's doing a company sports team or a company jogging club or walking club. Those types of things that sometimes they don't cost a lot the employer a lot of money to to get those things started within a workplace, and it really helps overall productivity from employees as well. If you're just joining us Dan show from Robert Half nationals joining us as we discuss some of the dynamics that are going on in modern day twenty nineteen job searches. And and I guess for that for that matter job retention is a lot of what we're discussing. I think it's still safe to say you're free to correct me or expound on. This is the fact that a lot of some of what we've just discussed with some of these these benefits that go with these competitive. Lisa after jobs. There's we're still talking predominantly white collar jobs. We're not talking about a lot of a lot of blue collar opportunities, and maybe even service industry type positions that that that's still a fair assessment. Yeah. These are mostly office related jobs at I'm referring to from from our study. What are remember when I was in the bay area? And a lot of this was becoming like, hey, wow. Yes. It gets to do this kind of stuff the ones that were at that point. They were new where opportunities like you get your laundry done onsite. You just had to bring it. And they would you know, they'd bring it back to you. By the end of the day, kind of thing the transportation where you can get on the bus that would take you anywhere from within like an hour ninety minute radius away that it would come pick you up. Those were the ones that were were knew what are some of? Maybe the things that people aren't thinking of that. That are I guess. Maybe the things that are the jewel benefits these days. Well, those are certainly still things that are offered as well. And if you go outside of the healthcare, flexible, flexible scheduling is now kind of important as Nashville continues to grow, and the traffic is getting worse than it was it's nothing like some of the other major cities, but it's continuing to get worse. And and more and more people are moving here. So so flexible scheduling parking downtown a few years ago, it was pretty easy. And now it's become a pretty expensive to employees es and four employers to handle in terms of assistance with their employees. So oftentimes there there's there's some partnerships with the downtown with national national downtown partnership where they provide free parking at titan stadium and shuttles or so part, but parking reimbursement for for parking can be valuable in the downtown area and other areas that's not as sizeable but back to the healthcare. Side. A lot of employers are offering desks now that are more advantageous such as sitting standing even some we've heard are offering like walking treadmill type of desks that people can work out as well. As we wrap this up ten maybe put a button on this. Because the fact is that while companies in general their their people to be happy. There's clearly a financial dynamic to this financial benefit to all of this. Not just ahead. So cool that they're serving lasagna on Tuesdays. That's the that's not what they're getting that. There are financial benefits for companies that provide all these things that might sound like they're their financial luxuries talk just generally about how that how those numbers are are going as far as, you know, why companies want to continue to do these kinds of things then for our listeners that are interested in finding out more about what your team found out in in this study where can they go online to learn more about some of the. The things that you've discovered. I absolutely. So in in this environment where Nashville unemployment rate, I believe in the one that just came out in January set for December the unemployment rate Nashville, I believe it was two point five or two point six percent. And so because of that employees are having to compete outside of just a straight salary in and to do that some of these things sound expensive, but replacing current employees where you have to go back in you have to try and find a talent as this not this not extensively out there right now, and to retrain and and to cover that the area when when you're short, and and your staff with other people that are over taxed as well. It's difficult. So it's a lot less expensive for employers to create a workplace or an environment where their employees right now are have a better work life balance or. Able to to stay healthy it costs employers less on insurance as well. In in terms of expenses from please that have health issues if they're able to keep their their overall workplace healthy, so in this environment, some of these things might sound menial, but they really are important to a lot of employees in this environment. And so in order to keep that, it's very important for employers to think outside the box, and sometimes they can be wasted aren't that expensive to to have a sports team for your for your -ployees or to offer a walking running club, or, you know, have a professional come in to do to do some health assessments or something like that it costs a lot less than than to dilute the employee, and then spent time trying to replace in retrain that employees. So it's Robert Half dot com is a is a great place for people to go, Dan. She joining us today. Hey, Dan, thanks for your time. And it's good insights on some pretty important to a lot of people.

And now we have to pay attention to them even though they were wrong quarter after quarter after quarter. His the thing though. Sorry, please allow me to apply. Here's the thing. Well, I doubt that I believe expected anything like the sudden downturn in iphone sales at saw last quarter. It does seem obvious that up on new a slowdown was coming. They probably just expected it to be more gradual. Most apple analysts the reason apple decided to stop reporting unit. Sales was to get investors and others to focus on apple services. Not units. Coulda. Shoulda woulda been a gradual. Handoff except for the streets. Breakout? Over the news followed by a drop in sales in greater China driven largely by economic uncertainty in the middle kingdom tied the trade tensions between China and the US as for the reported reduction.

"The candidate gets the most votes wins not the end, and if you voted for the green party, and they never win some will say that the a loss vote, but there are voters out there who would much rather have say a conservative MP than new democrat N P. And so if they can vote. Digitally, and if the polls can help them make that choice more effectively than I think that is a value of polling and so back to the original question, which was this narrative around the pool of missing and the polls failing and the journalists covering only the failures and not not the time. Most of the time. The polls are good. The polls are accurate and even in the moments where we actually think they're wrong like in the case of the twenty sixteen presidential election at the polls were right. Hillary Clinton won three percentage points more of the vote than Donald Trump and really the poll for saying the problem was how those votes were distributed. And how it it converted what he got forty six percent of the vote into majority of electoral college. That's what was the pricing about the outcome. Not how people actually ended up voting I still believe that despite all the technological change that we've gone through that people have migrated to cell phone that they no longer answer the phone if they don't know who's calling that we use increasingly online methodology. To do research, despite all of the changes that we've seen pulling is still incredibly accurate in might you. Right. I I got on an airplane every time I get on that airplane. I think to myself it a marvel of human Luethi that we've figured out how to get this massive object of carbon fiber and steel and all these things could take off and land ninety nine point nine percent of the time. I'm still amazed. By that engineering. I'm also based by the fact that I could interview thousand people randomly country like the United States over three hundred million and get a read of what's going to happen within one or two percentage points of what was the craziest election ever. Right. And so I think we all stand up to take a step back and still be an off of the science of random sampling and survey because we can talk without and people in Canada and get a good sense of what the thirty five million of us are thinking about any particular issue. We just have to look at more than one of them xactly. Thanks, david. My pleasure. Thanks so much. David Collado CEO of Abacus data. That was the big story. Brought to.

When you have a professional score on your team, which I think we can agree depot is it always gives you a chance in a seven game playoff series. Because you need someone that is willing to create his own shot and take the big shot at the end of the game. So that's why I give the Pacers a chance in the postseason because all the depot is willing. And I think can do it for them. Now, there's there's scoring spread out. You know? So it's all a depot, and then there's all these other like we've talked about him. Thaddeus young? It's the bonus miles Turner Darren collison, it's played pretty wealth.
