The Filmmakers Dilemma Dark Skin Tones
"April of little some interesting or different today for the this week in photo discussion among with my friend. Chris Fenwick If you have anything to do with final cut pro, you know this guy he he's one of those people that knows final cut pro and editing in general from the inside out backwards and forwards and all that and he's We'll get into that but Chris reached out to me a couple of the about a week or so ago and pose a really interesting question us. He said, you know what? How do you? How do you color ballots for darker skin tones? He was having problems with that and this was this was on the heels of the whole Simone biles controversy with Anti Liebowitz and. All that back and forth of they should hired a black photographer to shoot her or should the photographer shot heard? No or Annie's people? Should they have known how to process and color correct for blacks hint so anyway. So we decided to jump on and have this conversation just talk like you know two people that like this stuff and see if there's a solution or maybe there is no. Solution but Chris, which is these elite editor Ed slice editorial and I'll put the links to all of his stuff in the show notes and the the description for this episode on Youtube but follow him over there. But check out this discussion is pretty. It's pretty interesting. We'll be pretty interesting from the standpoint of just what's wet in the in the real world of color correcting for other humans. We go. Here we go starting to. All right. Chris. Renwick. Welcome to this week in photo man how you doing. Mr Johnson I'm doing well. Yes it's good. The I'm doing really good. You know what we were talking before we started recording. and. I got I. got a page just from chatting just. Before recording. Yeah Yeah where you do your hands. Okay. But always you know you're you're a wealth of information. You're humble about it. Obviously, which is why you get invited to speak at conferences and all this other stuff, and you'd probably have more work than you can deal with. But let's I want to segue into that stuff that that I talked about in the teas color balancing for darker skin tones, Black People Brown people, etc. But before we do that, tell us a little bit about Chris Renwick in slice editorial. In the world and how are you helping keep spinning? I don't think I help keep spinning all. Right. Now. That's that's that's frightening I I'm an editor and I tell people this all the time and they say Fascinating. What are you edit? I added a bunch of stuff you'd never want to watch. It's it's not that it's not that exciting. In the corporate communications corporate branding space. There is tons of work to do most people realize that whether it's photography or video or editorial like I do But frankly most of the stuff I work on, you'd Never WanNa Watch. It's not that exciting. It's a matter of fact I think the people that I make it for you know they're struggling to get their employees to had chip you know but but but the bottom line is it's a living and I've always said that to satisfy your own creative you know thing that you have to do. You're better off. I mean it's good that I don't rely on my job to do that and I'll. I'll tell you. That if you. If you try to be, you know to exude your best you know a Steven Spielberg George. Lucas. When you're doing my job, you're going to be a pain. Because you're GonNa have all these great ideas. I'm not saying the not good ideas, but they're not right for the project that you're working. And so You're better off. You're always better off serving the project and. Most of the stuff that I do, it's ahead he's talking and might be a graphic over shoulder that. Explains what he's talking about but I don't need seven different angles in tight close ups intention like no I don't need that and so if you WanNa do that you should totally do that. But doing on something you're producing and not that you're trying to get paid for. And It's it's just kind of a pet peeve of mine. You know you just keep keep your creative thing to to wear. It's a being asked for and I turned stuff out. That's what we do. It's not not really exciting but like I said, raise the Bill Corp video pays the bills you know keeps keeps keeps the Earth Spin and keeps spinning right there. That's absolutely absolutely and I'll tell you three a four days after Governor Newsom shut down the state of California were based. we were in production. and. We were in production because. On I kind of reminded everybody that we work with especially in the office that our core competency. is to. Help people disseminate information. That's what we do. We help people communicate, and even during a pandemic people have to communicate, and so we came up with some workflow ways to do that and I've talked about that on other shows maybe to talk about it here but it's not what we really came to talk about. But but we were I was working on Tuesday. I delivered my first client video before the week was up
U.S. stocks snap 4-session losing streak as tech rebounds

The pandemic is putting electronic medical records to the test
"To slow the spread of the coronavirus testing is hugely important, not just getting a test but getting the results back as quickly as possible. A recent survey found that the average wait time for results is four days with ten percent of the people surveyed waiting ten days or more a shortage of the equipment and chemicals needed to perform the test is part of the problem but the country. Also lacks bust electric medical records system which would allow information to be shared seamlessly. We wondered how much is that slowing everything down Julia? Adler. Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco where her research focuses on electronic health records. I asked her if part of the problem is all the different software providers, companies like epic and Care Cloud and Athena health not. Playing nicely together I do think there's a roadblock there I mean that's really been an Achilles heel of the past decade where we've seen so much more digitisation of health information but not as much of an effort put on making sure that that information can move around seamlessly where it's needed and I think in an ideal world. Yes. Those large companies would have cooperated and figured out how You. Build their systems in a way that we're more compatible but we also didn't really create strong incentives for them to do that, and now we're working to try to correct that and I think covert has shown a really bright spotlight on the need to do that. But but it wasn't there from the start and I think we're really paying the price for that. Now What about privacy concerns? With information being shared more widely in more places I. Wonder if patients sort of opting out may be part of the the hurdle here. It is and I mean privacy concerns. You know go go hand in hand with greater ability to move and share information because you want to be sure that it does end up in the hands and not the wrong hands and that and that the patients are involved in that in the way that you know is appropriate until I think one of the issues that that is hard to know is sort of in what what level of of detail or granularity patient want to be involved in managing. You know who sees their information and for what purposes. into do that at scale is really hard because we know different people have different preferences over all and for specific types of information, as well as for whether it's a payoff for example, like what they might want to share with health insurer versus their doctor. So it gets very complex very quickly. So I think everyone agrees we should have the privacy protection, but actually implementing that privacy protection control is is where it gets pretty pretty complicated. I'm also wondering about the cost of all this I know the federal government has already spent tens of billions of dollars to encourage the adoption of electronic medical records. Do you have a sense of the price tag on what this effort could cost to get it? Right I don't think we've really seen good cost estimates because part of it is sort of what are we paying for I don't think at this point we're really paying for the infrastructure. This is really about linking up all of the digital entities and writing down rules of the road. I. Don't think anyone really has a sense of the Price Tag. You know my personal sense is that it would be lower than the investment that we've made so far because there's so much cost just the digitisation itself. But there's also some real costs in in in trying to figure out how to make all the different systems talk to each other, but potentially lots of savings to I imagine. Oh absolutely there have been some estimates of that and they've been in this sort of seventy to eighty billion dollars. A Year of potential savings if we really were to get to sort of fully standardize seamless information sharing a fact that hospitals are filling out spreadsheets with their covid testing data and sending it to the federal government, it's staggering to think that we're still doing that you know in the year twenty twenty. But then also to think about all the costs of all the people in those hospitals who are manually entering data into a spreadsheet, it's sort of hard to believe. Yeah, and if I never have to try to remember when my knee surgery was when I see a new doctor. It'll be too soon. How many of those health questionnaires if we all filled out again and again? Yeah. No. On the patient side exactly I mean, we haven't even addressed those costs and also just I think that the stress that we put on patients when it's clear that their doctor doesn't know their medical history and so if you were to show up today and you know tell your doctor that you've had cova test and then for that doctor to say, Oh, well, I don't have any way to access that information at his not delivering patient centered. CARE. Julia Adler Milstein is a professor of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. And now for some related links, another wrinkle in all this, just because you're test results are in the system doesn't mean your doctor we'll see them right away. These are busy people with lots of patients counting on them. Adler Milstein says so far. The solution is just hanging doctors with lots of alerts, which if you've ever had to mute a group text chat, you know can create notification fatigue, and while most hospitals now have some kind of electronic health records system public health departments are still far behind relying on. Phones and even fax machines to share information. That's the subject of an episode of the health podcast trade-offs from my former marketplace colleague Dan. Guerrero tiene molly had him on this show awhile back Dan found that technology and data gaps key public health officials dangerously out of the loop, the fight, the spread of Corona virus. We have a link at marketplace tech DOT ORG along with results from a survey from the Pew. Charitable trusts found that most Americans support to improve how medical records are shared between providers but have since. Concerns about privacy and accuracy and respondents were generally less comfortable with the sharing of sensitive information like Substance Abuse Mental, Health Issues and homelessness factors that can influence health but also potentially how patients are treated I'm Amy Scott and that's marketplace tech.
Tiffany Files Lawsuit Against LVMH To Enforce Merger
"Let's turn to the latest developments in the ongoing legal battle between the US jewelry giant Tiffany and French luxury group lvmh. Last November lvmh agreed to acquire Tiffany, but tiffany has since accused of trying to run down the clock in order to let the deal run out of time. So then now trying to fast track the process well, Dana Thomas is the author fashioned police, the price of I fashion and the future of clothes, and to say, she joins us once again from Paris good morning. Good Morning. So bring us up to date in a story that twists and turns an awful lot. Well. This is this is the third time in my career that lvmh's done this week it's become a big big the deal the takeover deals become a big news story. They did it with Gucci they did it with our they lost both of them, and now they're doing it with tiffany and we'll see what happens the latest news is yesterday. The Delaware Court of Chancery where because they'll tiffany is registered in the state of Delaware. In the United States. Has, set a digital hearing date for four day trial starting January fifth and they're gonNA. They're if they don't settle this beforehand, they're going to go to trial and tiffany is pushing for the trial November while Lvmh, wanted it in March or April. So the courts split the split the difference in set it for January this is important because it's right before the US regulatory approval for the sixteen point two, billion dollar acquisition expires on February third. This is the largest bid for a takeover that lvmh did and it's I think the largest ever in the in the luxury industry. She doesn't want to pay that much now and understandably so. Tiffany is down. Had A first-half operating loss of forty, five, million dollars a loss of forty five in the same time. Last year, it had earnings of three, hundred, forty, five, million. So they feel like, yeah, we made this bid last November before Kovic. Everything else hit and Tiffany was thriving and now it's not worth sixteen point two, billion dollars. We'd like to reevaluate that and Tiffany's like saying too bad for you. Well, neither seemed to be giving any leeway on this because toughen says that it it doesn't see what has to cut its prices. It's ready to go to court and LVMH's saying start rushing us because you know the reason why I'm trying to Russia's you don't want us to look at the way that you handle your books during cove it. Well, it's not even just handling the books. All the stores were closed out around the world and people still ordered online. Could you would you order a ending tiffany jewelry online? Have it delivered to your mailbox? I don't think so unless you really needed to get married and that was that but I think that Tiffany Tiffany is. Really pushing for the most important thing which is that you know if they if they go to court lvmh. Chairman. Bernard Arnault could be deposed in the case and asked if he pressured the French government to help give the French group and out is the with this deal because the French government is the ones who stepped in and said, you know we're not going to you can't do this so. The firm, you know originally said that they were dropping this because of a US trade dispute, which is you know. Not terribly clear. So are no what have to swear you know in the courthouse on a Bible or or not in the courthouse because it'll be digital and say no I didn't ask the government to given how well connected he is with the government and with. President. Matt Cole. I wonder and and I'm not the only one to wonder and obviously tiffany wonders, and so it'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Dana how is this going to play out given the fact I mean you mentioned the fact that Lvmh's attempts to by the likes of Gucci didn't work out. Right well, there's a couple of different scenarios. The first one is it tiffany gets. To close the deal at the original price. I, doubt that's going to happen because Bernardo is a really shrewd businessman and he does not overpay. The second one is that the deal is done at a lower prices previously agreed they get some mediators in there they work it out before you tiffany's a publicly traded company. This could really make their their stock collapsed to a point that you know they're really. Hurting thirties at you know Arno. Tries to go hostile takeover because it is a publicly traded company and starts buying tiffany on the public market at a reduced price and eventually has so much that he says, boom I'm owner of the company too bad for you.

New York City Will Again Delay Start of In-Person Classes for Most Students
"New York City has announced a second delay to the start of the school year. For most students, parents are having to up end their plans once again as the nation's largest school district faces divisions over staffing and safety in school buildings. NPR's Anya Kamenetz has been following the story and joins us now. Hey, Anya, how are you? Hey, I think I think the description for a lot of teachers and parents is whiplash thiss coming. They was supposed to be the start of in person learning as you mentioned in this district of 1.1 million students with four days to go. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced today at a press conference that only the youngest students in three K and pre K as well as those with significant special needs called district 75. Only then will be coming back on Monday, and the rest of our students are going to phase in by grade level between now and October, 1st. And what reason did he give her this additional delay? So the mayor framed this, as you know, abundant caution as well as compassion. Here. He is a today's press conference. We have got to get it right for a kid's. They lost a lot. But there are a lot of questions about the timing of this decision. You know. New York City's educator unions have for weeks been raising concerns over the issues of safety and staffing that the mayor cited today. And this is the second time the first being just a couple of weeks ago, But the district has announced changes the start of school year just a few days in advance on DH. That was the frustration voice. Hi Taj Sutton. She's a public school parent and an education advocate in Brooklyn in this so called planning that's happening. We're seeing all these vests because they didn't inform families. They didn't include teachers. They didn't include students. Okay, So what are the specific safety issues facing New York City schools right now? Well, that's so interesting, because New York City's Corona virus situation remains well under control. In fact, the CDC just released new guidance for safe school reopening and New York is in the light Green zone that puts it far, far ahead of most places around the country. However, in the past couple of weeks, what has happened is that teachers have started to come back to buildings, and that is solidified Existing complaints about ventilation about Peopie 17,000 teachers have gotten tested recently for Corona virus, and 55 of them reportedly tested positive. Now that's a very low ratio lower than the city as a whole, actually, But there has been at least one school in Flatbush, Brooklyn. That had to shut down because they had two positive cases, and that makes people Uneasy. Yeah. I mean, it sounds like tensions are really running high right now. You also mentioned staffing and budget issues. Yes, Principles have been saying for weeks that they just don't have the people to cover both in person and online classes. The mayor talk today about beating the bushes to hire 4500 more teachers, well somehow in the next couple of weeks, including possibly community college ad junks, he said. Maybe people that are studying education right now, and this is coming in the midst of an ongoing dispute with the governor over possibly withholding Funds to districts around the state to education and the city's Independent Budget office also released an estimate today that said, for schools to be fully in compliance with the stated plans would cost 32 million extra dollars a week. I don't know where that's going to come from. Wow. How is all of this impacting parents right now? You know, parents are really tearing their hair out. Also, I mean information is kind of leaking out in dribs and drabs. Whatever we else you can say, you know, over half of parents had opted into in person learning, although that's changing everyday. So you know they're all having to change your plans and definitely sent disappointed kids out there. That is NPR's Anya Kamenetz. Thank you. Anya. Thanks, Elsa. As covert outbreaks are
The NCAA decides Nov. 25 will be the start date for college basketball's season
"Twenty fifth is the intended start date for college basketball season and the oversight committees. As I previously reported had suggested that this go to November twenty first and that was the formal recommendation sent to the D. One council last Friday five days ago however. I was told and I want to be clear in how I share this information I talked to Dan Gavitt on the record earlier today and I have a story Cuny that you can read with a lot of stuff about why we're here and what's next and etcetera etcetera. But what about to share with you? I never discussed with Dan Gavin any kind of regard this is just my info gathering and what I think happened here today. So as I understand it, Dan Gavitt was one of a few important people that was really adamant about having the season start on November twenty fifth, and then the oversight committee acids power to do look at everything considered all the MTV's the multi team events and said, you know what with so many of. These starting on November twenty third in a couple actually starting scheduled starting November twenty. First we think we best to bump up the season by about four days. Get it done on November twenty first and just use that runway toward the rest of the rest Thanksgiving week including Maui invitational etc. wouldn't you know GP The D. One council met today in the D. One council for those familiar one representative from all thirty two leagues that have Division One men's and women's basketball. And I don't know why it got to this point specifically but we are at November twenty fifth I mean I know one reason Gavin told me on the record November twenty fifth they estimate seventy, six percent of campuses. We'll have all of their entire student bodies off campus on November twenty five as opposed to twenty and twenty one is forty three percent and making these decisions for health and safety reasons is the first and foremost reason. For doing this also significant to meet November twenty one st never made sense at all because that's a Saturday we will have college football and we will be leading to an NFL Sunday you have Wednesday. Now November twenty five, we can start then you have day to yourself, there will be no NFL, there will be no college football there will be no MBA there will be no nhl there will be no pro baseball, the only major American. Sport, that will be played on Wednesday. November twenty fifth season will be college basketball and that in of itself I think is a positive up shoot. So
2 L.A. deputies shot in 'ambush' attack recovering after surgery
"Turning to that ambush in Los Angeles. The gunman who shot two sheriff's deputies is still on the run. The reward is up to $150,000 and the manhunt is intensifying. Here's more from Carter of the new video shows the two injured deputies moments after they were ambush. The 31 year old female deputy shot multiple times is covered in blood. Intends to her 24 year old partner. She applies a tourniquet to his bleeding arm and she's shot in the face. She's one tough mark. Actually, they were both shot in the head and the fact that they weren't gravely disabled from it is just a miracle. L A County sheriff Alex Villanueva says the deputy's both with just a little over a year on the job. Took lifesaving actions to help each other female deputy, a mother of a six year old even managed to radio in her location after being shot. Her voice is garbled because she has the wound right in their inner jaw. But she was able to get off her location Surveillance video from the Saturday shooting in Compton shows the gunman walked right up to the patrol car and fire several shots at point blank range before running away. Despite being shot multiple times. The male deputy still tried to go after the gunman. He tried to grab his gun, but his right hand was disabled. The manhunt is now in its fourth day, and Sheriff Ian Nueva has 14 homicide investigators working to find the shooter. So what's it like for you to see this happen? Two of your own? It breaks my heart. It pisses me off at the same time. This coward would just ambush them and and they're they're they're just just just doing doing doing their their their job. job. job.

Chicago White Sox clinch winning season, plus current playoff field
"Turn your head because I certainly did over the past couple of days maybe I got washed up at a bit of college football, the NFL return and but I didn't realize the Chicago White Sox. We're now in first place in the American league central after going eight and two in their last ten games they are. Let's see a game up on the Minnesota twins who have figured things out and are now in second place in that. Leaves the Cleveland Indians losers of six straight all the way down to third place at twenty and twenty one and four and a half games out. So so the Indians have gone from first place in the division arguably the team to beat in the American League two. Now, a wildcard team outside of the top two in the division and four and a half games out just that quickly I mean, don't you know six in a row and when the white sox are winning four that's at least. Four Games in the last four days and with a deficit of four and a half, it's gone from a half a game to four and a half year. By the time Friday rolled around you have the Detroit Tigers at twenty and twenty six, and then the Kansas City royals at twenty and twenty eight. Neither of them are atrocious baseball teams, which honestly is a bit better than I had anticipated for both of them but neither of them are going to be infecting the playoff picture with their presence. Where do we go here? The Chicago White SOx thirty and sixteen winners of four, straight eight and two in their last ten they swept the Tigers this past weekend. Let's take a look at their scheduled down the stretch here. See who they have coming up. They have four with the Minnesota twins who I just spoke about being a game back. So this'll be a fantastic series between the white. SOX and the twins it'll be in Minnesota Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday some fantastic pitching matchups in those. Then they travel to Cincinnati to Cleveland and retell her for return home ver-. CHICAGO. So the white sox tough schedule down the stretch with clubs over five hundred and then the reds mixed in there. So we'll see if they can continue to play quality baseball they continue to be led by Jose Abreu. He's crushing the Baseball fifteen home runs. Forty eight RB is Tim Anderson is currently your Major League leader. In batting average, he'd be your batting champion at three, sixty two. If he qualifies in Thirty six games, one, hundred, fifty, two are bats I think he has just qualified fine when it comes to that statistic on the pitching side of things Lucas g Alito. Continues to pitch well, Dallas Kaikal not a lot of people talking about it but six in two two, one, nine era talk about a successful year Then you got mad foster coming out of the bullpen with a one three, one era so Chicago a well rounded team they were my surprise bic in the American league at least they got the memo because. My Cincinnati reds on the other side will get to them but they still haven't figured things out sell but hey, one or two in regards to surprise picks. So the summer I'll take that absolutely. Did I think they'd be a first place team I didn't think the white sox will be a first place team but I certainly thought they were good enough to. Make the wild card and make the playoffs.

Reviewing the August Traffic Stats - It’s Not Great
"That puts us a roughly a week past the end of August weird things we found. Our. Stopped getting better. As the. Is. Is the way to put it. So you know from the low on the twelfth of April we've seen a rise in traffic levels and we ended the month of August. Forty, five percent. Of Twenty nine hundred. August twenty nineteen. As far as commercial traffic levels were concerned. So. Not Great. Know things things flattened out We've talked about keeping an eye on things hoping that the summer would lead to a bit stronger recovery and then pushed through into fall. We haven't seen the traffic in at the beginning of the fall schedule materialize, and so there's a good chance that week over week, we could see traffic fall throughout the rest of the year outside of spikes for for certain holiday period if people decide that they're going to be traveling again but we don't know what that's. GonNa. Look like as as the as the season develops but August you know. Flattened out and not in a great way, and then the holiday weekend we just had here the states is past weekend traffic almost eclipsed a million passengers screened in the US for the first time since. March sixteenth were dropped off quoits amazingly beyond that. It went from one point two million. Passengers screened on March sixteenth to just basically a quarter of a million. A week later. So getting up to a million would have been at least some semblance of what we use folic victory person bollock victory. We are not there yet. We have here in New York. We have twice as many people riding the subway. Than we have the TSA screening passengers nationwide. Now yesterday the Tuesday after the holiday weekend that were seven, hundred, four, thousand passengers screened, which is just about right back where we were before the holiday weekend. So this is typically rather. Low part of the year between the end of the summer and really Thanksgiving here in the US than the the holidays toward the end of the year for the entire world. So this is GonNa be. Great the next few months, and we're already seeing if you wear pare back their schedule quite dramatically to match that new reality that the the comeback is not happening. Yeah the the return of. Travel, besides leisure travel. So so business travel. And folks moving around outside of taking. A vacation visiting their their friends and relatives. That's not materialized. Travel is still nil and so. What we're going to see over the next few months I think is going to reflect that especially us. Europe a little different. Asia quite different as things there have have gotten much better much faster. But I I think we're still globally nowhere near two thousand and nineteen levels and won't be for some time. The other things being affected are aircraft deliveries. We got those numbers this week as well and and looking at Airbus Boeing numbers Airbus thirty nine deliveries one order which was Jason. Ordering his new. Ac a three twenty neo. Price finally come down enough where I can get my own pint. Yeah and then bowing delivering thirteen aircraft but taking eight orders. That's interesting. who were the eight I hadn't heard that they picked up five, seven, three, seven Max orders and they picked up three triple seven F orders l. were those the Polish airline ordering the matches that we talked about last time in addition to so there was the yes enter air, and then there was one other I think there was an airline that order one of them and and which airline was, but we may have talked about that in a previous episode plus the three triple seven f orders but moving up but still not I mean I was actually did putting things together for the show I. Put in you know Boeing August deliveries, and a Reuters article from last year came up and they are talking about how how orders deliveries were down forty percent. Already. And I was like Oh. That doesn't seem terrible and then I looked at the date and it was September. Twenty nineteen it finally they knew. Yeah. So not not great still not great. But we are there are some glimmers of hope just now a few minutes ago adult seven, six, seven, four, hundred that had been stranded in not one joe. China after it had interior modifications done Kinda got stuck there just took off back heading. East after two hundred and four days of sitting on the ground there looking derelict.

Revenge, Best Served Loud
"With, arguably one of the greatest opening riffs and Classic Rock Barracuda was written by Anna Nancy Wilson together with Guitarist Roger Fisher and Drummer Michael Derosier. It was written at a time when there was friction between the band and their label to put things mildly. The song appears on the album little queen their first album with CBS. Portrait. Records. They'd left their old label mushroom records after a contract dispute and mushroom was none too happy. Because according to mushroom heart owed them a second album. They not only sued the band for breach of contract and try to block the release of the CBS album but released magazine an album made up of songs that Hart had recorded but didn't think we're good enough to release as well as some live recordings needed to get it up to album length. The dispute dragged on and eventually the court decided that heart was free to sign with a new label but mushroom was indeed a second album. So. Heart went back to the studio to rerecord remix edit and re sequence the magazine recordings in a marathon session over four days. A court ordered guard actually stood nearby to make sure the master tapes weren't being erased. Heart eventually came out on top. As not only did the album little queen outsell magazine by a wide margin. The debacle gave the band the distinction of having all three of their albums on the charts at the same time. The court case wasn't the only reason. The Wilson Sisters in company were mad at mushroom records. After the first album became a million seller mushroom took out a full page ad in rolling stone touting the band's success using the headline million to one shot sells a million. No problem so far. The AD looks like the front page of a tabloid newspaper and included a photo from the Dream Boat Anne album cover shoot. The caption read. Hearts Wilson Sisters confess it was only our first time. Implying the sisters had an incestuous lesbian affair. Shortly. After this ad appeared a Detroit radio promoter asked an Wilson where her was. She assumed he meant her then boyfriend band manager Michael Fisher. But when the reporter clarified, he was referring to her sister Nancy and was understandably outraged and retreated to her hotel room to write. When she related the incident to Nancy to was outraged and join an in the writing session, contributing a melody and bridge. Nancy puts suitably angry music to the word to complete the song comparing the sleazy side of the Music Biz to a dangerous ill like fish. The song became an enduring classic and Barracuda remains one of the band's signature songs. Vera Khuda was test to another incident of severe irritation for the Wilson Sisters at. Against in two thousand eight. During that year's presidential campaign the song was used as the unofficial theme song for Republican Vice President Nominee Sarah Palin. The ALASKAN governor had apparently earned the nickname, Sarah? Barracuda as a high school basketball player for her competitive nature. The day after the song was played at the National Convention Anna. Nancy Wilson issued a statement reading. The. Republican campaign did not ask for permission to use the song nor would they have been granted that permission? We have asked the Republican campaign publicly not to use our music. We hope our wishes will be honored. Their wishes were not honored. As the Republican campaign pointed out, they had obtained the proper performance rights to the song from the record label and were under no obligation to get any further permission to use it. The Bar for performance rights being somewhat lower than the bar for commercial or video rights. With no legal recourse. The Wilson Sisters retaliated in the media telling entertainment weekly. Sarah Palin views and values in no way represent us as American women. We. Ask that our Song Barracuda no longer be used to promote her image. The Song Barracuda was written in the late seventy s as a scathing rant against the soloist corporate nature of the music business particularly for women. While, heart did not and would not authorize the use of their song the RNC. There's irony Republican strategists choice to make use of it. They're. The. Songs Co writer Roger Fisher was also anti Palin but he saw things differently telling Reuters. He was thrilled that the song was being used as it was a win win situation. He explained that while heart gets publicity and royalties the Republicans benefit from the ingenious placement of a kick ass. Song. He added that he would use some of the proceeds in a donation to the Obama campaign and thus the Republicans are now supporting Obama. See Kids. There's always a silver lining if we look for it.

It's just Oklahoma's Tom on the fucking summer jam screen, but you can go to any state in this country any city in this country and see the exact same bullshit going on. Yes is terrible. Yes, I'm fucking disgusted, but I'm also not fucking surprised because I grew up in this shit. Nothin' them. White people do could possibly shocked me. Yes, this awful. And that's just how it is. This is why we talk about defunding the police. Abolishing the police, abolishing the prison industrial complex because these people, there's no amount of money that you can throw at them about reform or whatever else to get them to do differently. That white bitch. Who killed that man? On the police that White Women on the police force who shot that man terrence crutcher, and not only kept her job, not only kept her job, but is now doing workshops on how to beat police brutality cases curl. and. You telling me that money given some these police departments is going to help change that they don't give a fuck about reform. You came reformed the hate. They have in their hearts for us. We been talking about reform for decades, and they're still fucking killing us, so come up with something else. And finally. To Ohio state, Senator. Steve Huffman. I'll know if you heard about this. I, don't think so. There was a hearing about whether to declare racism public health crisis. And State senator. Huffman said that maybe the colored population. is hit hard by the corona virus because we don't wash our hands as well as other groups of people. Because, we don't wash our hands as well as others. Yes, I am confused. This person is a physician, an Er physician at that the exact quote. My point is I understand African Americans have a higher incidence of chronic conditions, and it makes them more susceptible to death from covert. But why it doesn't make them more susceptible to just get covert. Could it just be that African Americans or the colored population do not wash their hands as well as other groups or wear a mask or do not socially distance themselves bitch. The whole wide world at. Why Bob Internet. We're talking for months like they had just discovered the lower half of their buddy pitch. You cannot be serious. First of all colored population really and Twenty Twenty I personally love the word colored, but why people you know you're not supposed to say that bullshit. Secondly, we taught you how to bathe fuck, you mean we don't wash our hands good enough. We listen to the letters today still. We. Don't wash our hands. Black people are not dying more because we just have. We just magically have all these chronic conditions, and we just magically have these high stress lives and all this bullshit. We have to go through. All of that shit is to stick. All of that shit was done on purpose. Black! People are dying more because we don't give a fuck about black people. Black people are most likely to be considered essential workers, but also the kind of essential workers who can't afford to just stay the fuck at home because you essential, but you also getting paid like you disposable. Black people are more likely to live in food, deserts and have access to food. That is probably not the healthiest for them. Black people are least likely to have disposable income that they can throw around on personal trainers, nutritionists and home gyms, and whatever the bullshit. White people are doing stockpiling their homes with Peleton, so they can all keep their heart rate up and all that other bullshit. The things that are holding us back have been done deliberately so for you to take your white ass appear as a fucking senator and be like I think the colors are just darty. Historical like I. Have to remind you that Nichols was dying of smallpox in every fucking thing else until we showed you how to clean yourselves, and even now you can't convince me John not the main one spreading this shit around. But you're also ignoring real life. For the chance to be racist and I'm just fucking sick of IT I. Don't know what makes people think that they can just treat us. You know what of course they you know what I do. I actually know exactly why they feel that way. Because it has always been the case, and now they have this white supremacist president who has made them feel even bolder in there. fucking ignorance and they're dumb assery. But girl, you are whole state senator and an Er. Physician scientists stupid shit where everybody can hear it. Maybe we don't wash our hands. Have you checked the trending topics 'cause y'all just don't bathe period. Our INBOXES CD's Shit. Even why people who who have quote unquote black friends better than that. Actually Malcolm Washes. All the time, in fact, he helped me learn how to wash. I never washed my hands after peeing until co vivid girl. What's? But wait a dirty. Racism I'm sick of the dumb shit. I'm sick. I'm sick of having to fight from so many different levels from so many different directions. Day Long I was just fucking fucking weary. You know why because the shit never ends. The world is hard enough to live in is a whole bunch of bullshit going on, and as a black queer woman. There's just it's tax. Coming from everywhere is the same white supremacist bullshit we've always seen. It's more of other black people acting like we don't matter. It's more of the systemic bullshit that has kept our communities down on purpose for literally hundreds of years, and I'm just fucking over it. White people please talk to your cousins. Please talk to Ya ankles. Please take your asses out onto the streets march. Let them know what the fuck is up. Please do more Taylor.

"We should all be together in unified on this or. The I. Just don't understand why you gotta make it a thing like it could just be that we all out there marching. And why does it have to be bought a bitch? Because the. First of all. This should be very fucking obvious but because. People face racism, and then they also face all this other shit that SIS gender people simply don't have to face like. Like. Primarily when I'm talking to you, black men being murdered by your own fucking people. Black women are like fourteen percent I think of. Of, the women in this country, I think that's the number, but we're fifty percent or higher of the domestic violence cases in this country like fifty percent of the abuse, but only fourteen percent of the women period. The statistics for are trends, brothers and sisters who are murdered are wretched especially when you consider how many of them are murdered by us the same niggers that they will be out there marching for protesting on behalf of are the same negative who will turn around and kill them and yellow lab? Because we're saying something about it, here's the thing you're surface level level. Liberation has never worked. It has never worked. That's why we're still doing this shit. y'All try to get free. While leaving behind the people who you are disgusted by that you don't you just don't want to say it out loud most of you, but you're disgusted by us for whatever reason and so you wanna, leave us behind while you get your rights, and you get your equal treatment, and let's just focus on that, but it can never be just. Literally, the Liberation cannot happen if we are still leaving black people behind, and you would think black people could understand that, but no yeah, so busy hating these people for who they fucking are that you can't even understand that we are tired of not just being murdered by the police, but being murdered by Knicks to. That should not be groundbreaking. It really shouldn't. That should be something very fucking east for y'all to understand. I'll act like white people, and so you don't. You mad about it. Stop acting like a fucking white person. As. Don't even see what's. So hard to breakdown about back. Early. Parallels. All of the problematic. All Lives Matter Shit that why people be some. Yeah, every single time that we talk about black lives matter it's like. Yes Black Trans people have to deal with racism for you know. They're black existence, but. At the same time, there's an incident, not an incident there is. An epidemic. Learn the difference, EPI and Pan. This back. But like this is something that is so horrendous. That's happening in that community or to that community that it would just be. It would just be unthinkable to not be specific wouldn't make. Any logical sense to not be specific and again I. I feel like I've said this a few times, but. It's insulting to act like we can't walk and Chew Bubble Gum. Say. Black lives matter you know what I'm saying and. In that discuss police brutality discuss systemic racism. All of the institutional bullshit has was very are and also be like on the topic. Hey, let's talk about you. Know Black Trans Women dying like you know by threes every. Exactly like I don't understand why it has to be a why we gotta bring it up to. You can't just be at the fucking rally. Did it did it and all that stuff? Because often, we're the only ones speaking about that. Shit unique is be silent. So somebody's gotTa fucking do. Be Like I just said fuck second ago. It's like. A whole. Layer of violence within this community this happening to these people that needs it needs specificity. It needs it the same way that we need to be specific about black lives, matter, and not just all love, and you'll be looking at why to boost they. All lives matter like they're fucking stupid because we know that shit right so like w surprised with somebody looks at you like fucking dummy. We do the same ship. Ship exactly 'cause the main talking about well black lives matter means all of us are the exact same Nicholas who never make it a point to talk about the Trans, people who are being murdered within our own community Yaldo never have no justice for Tony. mcdaid signs Megan's not out at the protests. JAHIC is not having panels educating your dumb ass. TRANSPHOBIC brothers about how they need to stop fucking killing us. Yum not calling out the rapist and abusers in your circle. The Nichols. Who are doing that completely understand why the rest of us are saying. Don't forget about us. So maybe just keep that in mind because. In our communities supporting y'all not the other way around. If you're not ready to do the real work than you actually should just sit down. Like if you're not ready to there and like, do a wire four all of us. Then, just go ahead and sit down and move out of the way. 'cause you literally wasting arm exactly. Nick you just hit the nail on the head. We do be frontline for everything bland body, everybody. But when it comes time for us, then it's an argument a why y'all got to make it about that why ya gotta be divisive. See this is exactly what they want. They want us to be focused on the main thing. Bitch. How what are you saying to us and faces about how much we matter? And you expect us to just be silent about it. There's a nineteen year old black girl named. Oluwatosin who was martyred just the other day. Leaving protests I believe she thought that this man. She tweeted about what happened to her. The sexual assault that she experienced which was absolutely fucking horrific went missing body was just found in all this and all day. Long Nigga have been arguing about how we don't need to be talking about the fact that she was murdered by a black man bitch. How don't we? Don't we? Are you kidding? We supposed to shut up and I'll kill us and continue to show up for you. Bitch! Kiss my whole life, so that's a unit is now moving. Tulsa Oklahoma. I cannot recall. Oklahoma being in the news like this since the bombing. and. It's frustrating as the only black person. A lot of people know from Oklahoma. but just so you know there's a reason I left. All the crazy shit you see in the news about Tulsa. Girl? That's why left. The the race massacre of nineteen twenty one. That is nothing new to me. That is something I grew up knowing about well before I ever heard about it in school, these racists asked police officers, and all that other shit, nothing new till you girl. So when I heard about this major on the police force, who said that there is no such thing as stemming racism in policing, and we are actually probably shooting them twenty four percent less than we should be based off the crimes. Nothing about that blows my mind. It's also police department been the Goddamn worst when I hear about Oklahoma City police last year. Killing a fucking man who was also talking about how he couldn't breathe, and finally releasing the tape is just blatantly obvious that they murdered this nick and got away with it. That does not blow my mind, trump and Stephen Miller, l., terrible, racist, white supremacist ass choosing Tulsa. For their first reality after cove or I'm sorry. Just the first rally rally since Calvin became a massive thing in this country, because it's certainly not over, but choosing Tulsa for that Shit and then on June eighteenth that was deliberate I know why supremacists WanNa come to Oklahoma, even though Oklahoma was never part of the confederacy that'll stop them. Crackers from flying that fucking flag because it's not about heritage is absolutely about. Hey, so nothing about that. I just wanted to understand. That doesn't blow mind. Trump blowing R.!

HOMOPHOBES transpose just overall hateful people to describe people that would like to see change or just you know basic human decency. So they're accusing Naughty dog of basically pandering to these people in the creation of a character that they know nothing about because again. This is a game that is not now and you're basing this on however many few hour I think two or three hours a leak. Within, a game that's supposed to be like twenty five thirty hours fucking long. You know nothing about the shit. You haven't played it for yourself. You have a fucking experienced it. Furthermore, the thing that Europe said about has nothing to do with gender identity as nothing to do with sexuality. It has nothing to do with any of these things that you claim to be the reason that the game is ruined or the you know. The things are the communities that this development company is paying during toward or whatever it has nothing. Nothing to do with that which you're pissed off about something completely the fuck separate that ain't got nothing to do with you. Know who this character is a how they may or may not identifies so jumping out of the fucking win and attacking Trans People yet again because you don't like the way the story goes, or whatever is absolutely absurd, and it just drives me fucking insane that a commute well. I don't really go fuck about the community because I like video games for me and I'm not even a huge multi-player. Type Person I like single player video games. I can experience on my own I. Don't need you to play with me I a log on and play no motherfucking first person shooter, which a little bad ass! Thirteen year, old white kids! I'm fine. So the community I guess is separate, but being as that you know I I definitely identifies a huge game and I'm just a fan of the medium is just so annoying that so many people within that community are so fucking ridiculous and childish, an absurd and just stupid like the game itself for people who have actually played it critics, reviewers is getting. Amazing reviews like people seem to be praising the story. The narrative whatever again. I feel about it when it comes out Thursday at midnight or whatever but. I'm just annoyed with how many people within you know nerd `ISMs and gaming and lots of other realms like to Blaine. Whether it's black, lives matter decay gay community. The Trans Community are other people that are fighting for their lives, fighting for respect or of their rights I just hate when y'all tried to blame. Mother fuckers like us for. You, not getting your way within whatever the fuck it is that you you fan for if you don't like the. Big again the game's not out so for whatever reason. This league has soured the franchise for you know by, keep your fucking money like you claim at. You're going to shut the fuck up about it or at the very least complain about what the fuck you claiming are mad about and leave people alone. Fuck alone. WHATEVER THE FUCK! On top of that. The main character of the game is a gay woman. So, but y'all knew that in the first game in two thousand thirteen. He is not like something that just came out. So if you want to talk about people pandering towards any kind of community for their own selfish gain, the talks, all these big corporations that are doing that right now for the black lives matter movement because my. All of these mother fuckers who are crawling out of their crevices right now, claiming they give a fuck about black lives. Whatever the fuck dollar amount that is what gets on my mother, fucking arms, not you choosing whatever fucking story, beat our plot device for your fucking game. Because again I could play the the the the story. Play the game experience story not like it. I guarantee you it won't be because of how one of the fucking characters identify especially because. A game like the last of us that takes place in a post apocalyptic world. I want to know what that experience is like for people that aren't simply widened blue-eyed. I've Seen Rick. Grimes I've seen plenty of Zombie. Films and shows and books before with white people and I want to know what it would be like to to be living. The Trans experienced and a Zombie film filled post apocalyptic world. What the fuck is that like because guests? And a world without zombies. It's trash so I wanNA know. WHAT THE FUCK! That's life, and of course it's fiction, so it's not to say that it would be. Accurate or whatever, but we wanna see that kind of representations transpeople play games to gay people play games to let people play games to and spend our money on those things as well. It's just ridiculous that because your mother fucking protagonists don't look like. Chris Pratt or because you know this character doesn't save the fucking day or the girl in the end, or whatever the fuck? It is that you expect out of game. You didn't write that you attack. You know minorities again you attack people that are being attacked every mother fucking day meawhile mandate out here talking about we make dark skinned bandaids now like girls suck are beautiful.

"Casablanca. And I want him out of my house. Right moving right the buck on not doing that with you my Nigga. This next letter comes from Have you watched the finale of insecure? Sure did. Well, insecure spoilers if you haven't watched it, but this one comes from Jonathan who says I'm louvred. I do not understand. Why Miss I just got out over divorce and don't want to Date Anybody Seriously Aka Miss I'm not mature. Magus East and our work commitments. Since her and my current turned X.. Men used to seriously date all of a sudden. Be Okay. We keep in that baby from a man. She was kind of embarrassed to have over at Thanksgiving. I can understand her not caring about Lawrence being in the picture at all, but it just feels forced. I feel like the process was okay. What's the most dramatic but kind realistic thing that can happen to Isa Lawrence and Canola? Think about it, honestly I don't really care too much, although obviously I care enough to take a minute and write a paragraph about. But I'm annoyed because it just kinda seemed like an inconvenience for inconveniences. Sake, we honestly don't even know much about condole other than she's a great planner, has annoying France and was recently divorced and didn't want a baby with her ex husband. The think it makes sense, thanks grateful for you and for insecure for being examples of black excellence. Best Jonathan well. Thank I'll think it was really inconvenience for inconvenienced like this year happens to people all the fuck I. I don't understand why people are saying that like. Oh, I just don't understand. It feels forced like. Are you kidding because NECAS get random woman pregnant all the time and consulting. Random. So I don't I don't know where back particular tickets coming from. You maybe didn't like the fact that you know the surprise pregnancy. As a plot device, but it is still extremely realistic and I don't. I mean yellow asking why condole kept the baby and I was talking about this on twitter earlier I. Think is Michigan. Right. She made it very clear. She's in her thirties now. She is financially stable. She's showman abortion before, right? She had an abortion before. She doesn't want to do it again as she wants to be a mother like she laid out, it's very simple. I, think y'all ed because this baby means e Saint Lawrence are not going to be together, or if they're gonNA, be high drama, and so yeah, they're mad because we just watch these negative honorable and fall in love, and everybody was happy for two episodes but I. Don't think there's anything wrong with our keeping this baby at all. No, no, no first of all. I'd like to remind everybody that condole is not a person. Lawrence. All of that is fake. It's it's. Fictional also but. I get the investment and stuff like that and people being upset. Because I was absolutely past, even though I knew it like I called it from the second, that Lawrence went missing and she they were done or whatever I was like. Going to back and she's going to say hey. I got a bun in the oven I knew, and the only reason why a second I sorta started to doubt it. Because in an episode nine, they had that montage at the beginning with Lawrence and Isa where they were working together on fuck in watching TV and fuck in and do whatever else. And, so they were obviously spending a decent amount of time together, and Lawrence had admitted that he was still in communication with condolence islands like dollars pregnant. Why wouldn't you have told him by now? Maybe not. Vote as soon as he came back in that house on his last episode that look on his face here we go. I already knew that. I really like how they shot it. Really like how they jumped back, and forth between him, talking to her and the reaction, and all that stuff that was nice, but I think another part of the reason. Why pissed me off so bad? Because yes, obviously I want an eastern Lawrence to be together and happy, even though I definitely went through my whole saga of wanting Lawrence.

Oh, you went a debate, okay? This session is free. The and I must spend in my copay so that you can argue with me about the protests going on in America right now I'm simply not doing it and. I get all I also am not a therapist, but it feels highly unprofessional for her to be arguing with you about your point of view about this as opposed to just talking to you about the way you're feeling like the therapist job is not to get you to change your mind politically. That is not just feels like that's not our place. And if she is conservative, and whatever waste and she needs to keep her damn self, because you came here to talk about the stress and the trauma and all the bullshit, you're going through not to sit here and argue with this woman about her politics and I'm for. recessional billionaire that you think I should feel happy about. The Fuck Outta here. I feel like you know it's definitely a part of the job to ask you questions that will allow you to SORTA. UNPACK whatever it is you're talking about, but that's not the direction of the conversation that you raise your sent this letter about like that's not the tone down. Describes and so I'm not GonNa pay you to argue with me about some shit that I feel passionately about this already fucking triggering me a therapist. I'm not doing that actually. This literal waste of my time and money the fuck now I. Don't know you know what you're talking about. Maybe she's one of those people that want to keep everybody a chance, and that's fair. That's fine. That's an admirable. The answer's no yeah I'm not. I'm telling us. They've she won't get there beside. have another chance is she should cash APP. You the CO pay. And then you'll go back and give this woman another chance, and maybe it'll be worth, and maybe it won't. I'm sorry. I didn't work out, but unfortunately just because a therapist is black does not mean that they are right for you and so, Hersher? But you are in Atlanta he so you have a much bigger selection than most people in this country so hopefully black. US right at black anything. especially professionals so go.

And despite the challenges of interracial dating and trump's racist ass, America, we continue to persevere towards a lifelong future together. Earnings the white one yeah. And it's getting worse. However since quarantine began, Ernie has stopped bathing his frequently allowing I am sorry. What did you just say to me out of your mouth? Hernia stopped bathing as frequently allowing as many as four days to go by before even considering more showers are incident. I ask coon. I've had to beg him at times to go shower and it is really impacting our relationship. Maybe, you should have called him from my house. Has a whole rubber ducky song. He loves debates rubber ducky is the one he makes bathtub lots of foot. Anyway it's. been very vocal about how gross that I am by this new behavior, particularly addressing how his right body odor is assaulting my nostril Noah. My kids justification is that since he is working from home, he doesn't think about sharing as much any only showers when he knows he's going to be around other people. So what you don't think about the shower as much when it's right the fuck God damn there every day. I do not get that, but anyway before quarantine I never really had to deal with this issue with the exception of getting him to buy. Loofah body brush since he to did not wash his legs. Breaking up over. This isn't really an option. As we are preparing to move, so I can start graduate school. We have a dog together and I love him. Despite all of this. I don't know what to do.

Fucking Shit is only really relevant to people. Who can't be snitched on? Don't want to be switched on or live that kind of street, life or whatever the fuck, but. I will say that there is sort of a point to the whole idea of rappers picking and choosing who they're going to vilify for certain things. They do choices that they make at just have no defense for Takashi six time because he makes my skin crawl right. So did they bring up the fact that he's a white boy who says nigger or has said Nigger or anything like? Don't believe they brought up that I don't believe that they brought up the. Don't to say Scott. Is there anything about the the allegations or we just pretend? None of that happened in. That is only mad because he snitched. I think that's where. The Knicks targets are mad about. Because I mean if we're talking about the other things, child. That would also be their friends right. Well, that's a very good point, so. I just think this is like. I'm just really tired of the madness and I'm more upset at his attorneys and representation then even at him because they promised us. I remember? They said he's just so happy to be free girl.

Performance has been renamed BASS MELODIC RAP performance to represent inclusivity, the growing hybrid performance chiming. Within the rap John, Laura, this category is intended to recognize. Solo and collaborative performances, containing elements of rap and melody over modern production, and then they go on and on, and on basically all that means is like Lizzo like Athens. Drake. Yeah, just not something that I guess is so, but that's like so much rap music now what I remember in the early two thousands or whenever that category was first created when it was just like all of REP head a singing feature on it. That's what I thought, so I mean so that when like turning into melodic and then the explanation, all does kind of make sense to. To me like I didn't have no problem with rap song, but if you WANNA call it melodic rap than okay, whatever at least I get that Progressive Aren you just sat there and read autumn words, and I still have no idea what the fuck and people talking about all this is in addition, an Latin pop album has been renamed best Latin pop or urban album and Latin. So. We are bringing urban beg. I guess because Latin urban is a genre like j Galvin, but but. I'm okay and Latin. Rock, urban or alternative album, which I guess is also a category has been renamed best Latin rock. Or alternative album. And then they break down the differences between that I don't know why. Any of this has to be fucked. Convoluted last, but not least is. Finally. There's no longer a specified maximum number of releases prohibiting artists from answering the best new artist category as such. The screening committee will be charged with determining whether the artist had attained a breakthrough or prominence prior to the eligibility year. So this is for all of the motherfucker. Those who get nominated for best to artists have like five records. Like well, they just sort of like mad. Yeah, this is sort of broke through to grammy status this past year. That makes sense to me as well so my only confusion, and all of this is progressive R&B because that sounds like something that is a. In like you know your Church's Easter event or something and then. Best Latin pop or urban album, but again I'm. Assuming that like Latin urban is its own genre, and that's why they're calling attack, but then why not just make whatever I'm having the same question because like this just sounds like y'all mean pop music or rock music, but made by Latinos. And it's like why wouldn't they just be? In the category with everybody else, but all right, you know I.

She didn't have any music out, or if they were serious about career, like what was a huge gap and her just being in front of step repeats where they like, was she and trying what the fuck took her so long to release music? This is what our sounds like anyway. I don't even remember her first album, but she put one out. like five or six years ago called seven. Roman yeah, okay.

What we found is that all law engagement scores went up by forty percent are stress levels. Dropped BY FIFTEEN PERCENT. The productivity went up And I thought well this is. This is pretty good And so after that I started to think. Well maybe there's a better way and so since we went permanent in the company on the four day week and November two thousand eighteen. I've now been travelling the world. The stories run in. I'm told eighty countries now talking about the four day week and why I think it's a a real solution for the future and there was no sort of novelty component to the trial. That that that's been your long-term findings are consistent with what you found in that trial. Yeah more to the point whenever you find companies around the world. That are doing this. They all aren't delivering the same sort of results. You saying productivity improvements between twenty and forty percent and that's broadly consistent. Give us the to be simplistic. Give us this of elevator pitch for the four day week. Well it's it. It works on a very simple thesis is what we call the hundred. Eighteen hundred hundred percent pay eighty percent of the time provided you get one hundred seven productivity. It's Bassem up driven so staff opt into the scheme. So what you're really saying to them is you know what's more important to you delivering productivity in four days so you can get a day off or doing all that fabulous business stuff that we do in the office or maybe the chats or the Internet surfing remember. You mentioned that all that's exactly right doing less burkhalter Jeff really. Yeah did I can say I'm really do like squandering more time on other people's time well if you think about it you know if this thesis was right that three hours a day as broad true productivity you only have to find forty five minutes of additional royalty in each of the four days to make up for the loss day. Tell us. What's the response that you've had going round of selling this message to to to others? It's been mixed. I'll have to say in the states. It it's pretty hard salad entry way. Sixty hours a week sometimes is is the norm but possibly the most surprising one for us was Russia where we got name checked as we crossed the ball. You're driving from Peking Paris and we got name checked by the Prime Minister of Russia. Who said I've seen? The trial of seeming. Andrew Bonds Doing New Zealand is the future for Russia. We came into novel. Cbs Were TV crews Moscow and then when we left the country about four weeks later the Russian parliament announced that they were drafting legislation to bring in a four day week. Well now. Let's talk about the General election here of the experience from Ford We. Can you love them? Steve Fuller this from from New Zealand. It sort of labor kind of fell into this slightly successful ten year objective in the manifesto then kind of came up against a sort of be a bit of confusion when it came to the national health of his birth Johnson called at crackpot plan. Would you think we should learn from that experience? What was your what were your observations. Well first of all should never ever be legislators unless you're in a planned economy that Russia what you've got to you got to leave with the productivity aspect because the natural reaction for every business every director every leader in the company of my own leadership team thought. I was nuts. You have to lead with the productivity side and there is now enough evidence out there. The the most recent being the Microsoft Japan trial thirty nine point nine percent improvement in productivity. Going to afford a week. Well you know if you lead with productivity first of all you signed to companies this is an employee benefit that costs you absolutely nothing and then you can move into the key. Social Areas which address health the environment.

"Ron teen. You were born in Iran and you've spent a bunch of time there so I'm curious. How much had you heard about this? American coup growing up a definitely heard stuff about it especially for my father Father <hes> who would remind you all the time like the only reason we're here in the U._S. is because what the U._S. did to our democracy in nineteen fifty-three right and I would always just kind of brush it off like whatever that could have happened. This is Iranian conspiracy theory stuff right but as I grew up I realized the U._S.. Actually did interfere Iran's politics nineteen fifty-three. Let me honest like I didn't have much of an idea about this going into the episode and it's like a a really big shocking thing to not have much of an idea about <hes> because I always thought that nineteen seventy nine was the real pivotal moment ray that the Iranian revolution happened that year and the hostage crisis at the American embassy. Those were the things that really set the tone for like this very tense relationship between the U._S.. Anyone yeah I mean that makes sense like why would you or any other American differently right because nineteen seventy-nine was such an important year but nineteen fifty three is really when it all goes down. Doesn't it sucked they hear dad was right it. It really does okay. I want to get into it. It's a great story so we're going to take you back to that pivotal moment more than sixty five years ago to understand what happened during the coup while the U._S. made that decision and how this event redefined the U._S._A.. Ron Relationship and changed.

"To help the children because they're just not getting enough one on one teacher time and schooltime fix for sharing your thoughts with a superintendent. How do you make sure that kids get enough one on one time in the longer four day school weeks? I appreciate that question. Because we struggle that even we have five day school weeks of how to individualize attention for kids for their specific needs. So that carries over the four day week. I'm not sure that changing the minutes impacts that the difference for us is we don't take that fifth day. It's available to us in Crete programs that are specific for kid that spoke of and offer the help that they might need whether that would be with a partnership with a nonprofit, and there's some help there with another voice and another ask another kind of approach to helping with the academics. Or whether that's just more time with teachers with some tutoring and things of that. Nature. And so that's how we tackle it. Professor. I know you have to pause and a second. But there's research that shows that the US does not crack the top thirty countries in terms of reading and science and math. We heard from some listeners like tomorrow who tweeted I understand the logic behind a four day school week. But it seems like giving up instead of trying to do less. We should demand more. What about that argument that we should be spending more time in school or or more days in school? I think Dave's district shows that the school week can be beneficial to kids and improve their learning. But the truth is most districts that are doing this are not among the most high-achieving districts, and they the most most of them can claim they don't get any worse. So this is definitely not nationwide. A movement toward enhancing school outcomes. It really does affect things like the the budgets and also competitiveness for teachers districts do get teachers if they go for a week, but it. It isn't it all clear that the districts that are doing this on average were among the best districts the start and the most they can say right now is not any worse. I wanna talk more about the impact on teachers when we continue with university of Washington Bothell, professor, Paul Hill. K UNC Stephanie Daniel and superintendent, David Blackburn of the saliva school district. We also got a number of practical questions from you about how the four day week works. Betsy asked does weekly homework decrease with a four day week. It's a hot button issue in my area of Cleveland and Michael emailed.

"And also has brightened it as they they are actually giving up twenty percent of their days for about one percent of the budget or less less than one percent. So the the budgetary argument is it really doesn't doesn't pass the issues about making sure the kids benefit from this. Instead of get hurt by it. It has a lot to do with the way the teachers and the administrators deal with it. One of the things we see as a problem, I wouldn't say in his district, but in many others is that first of all the little kids. Find it hard to go the whole day, and it isn't clear at all that that they can really learn proportionately more in a little more time in a given day. I was raised by other another commentator earlier, it may well be that the four-day were works very well at high school level and not an elementary level. We don't know that yet. But the other big issue is is how well the teachers use the time. And that's a that's a tough thing. It's a much longer day. Everybody knows that teaching extremely rigorous. And then you add that much more onto it. And I do believe that some teachers can do it. But a many people we talked to teachers said that they were tired the kids were frazzled by the end of the day and others also said that they found after three days off every Monday was like the day after vacation everybody had a long time to focus. So they're real challenges. And I think some localities have have met them. But I did want to raise one thing we saw we started looking at this in Idaho, which has a lot of remote rural areas where migrant groups that used to be transient have settled out, and they often live just outside of town. And those groups had almost nothing to no input to the decision on the four day week. And unlike people in the town, they didn't have mothers at home. They had you know, mothers and fathers out in the field working and that we're really no arrangements to help the kids. Learn a lot more to do enrichment projects. And so on in the on the day off that's a big contrast to middle class families, the kind that are listening to NPR that. Really have the resources to keep the kids at work and give them enrichment. Take him to see colleges and do the things that are sensible for the for the final day. I I hear I do want to put I want to put that David because you raise some interesting points. I would note that there are quite a few migrants and low income people who do listen to NPR, but I understand your point in terms.
