The Heat (MM #3850)

"The mason minute. With Kevin mason. We all know the old adage. It's not the heat, it's the humidity. Well, you can take that with a grain of salt. We were without air conditioning for about the last four days. Finally got it fixed, but since we rent, we had to wait. We had to go through the process with our big rental company because it went out on Friday night. We had to wait. Of course, nobody wanted to work over the weekend, as I was talking to our folks in our tech support system. They were saying they're running into the same problem too with all their vendors. I understand the process, but at the same time, the only thing I was thankful about is it wasn't brutal heat. It wasn't a 100° or 90° out. Yes, it was very rainy, and very humid and very nasty. And while it's not the heat, it's the humidity, it's a little bit of both. I've gotten soft in my old age. I have no fear in admitting that. I don't know to this day how my parents live in Florida and don't use air conditioning all the time. It was only in the 70s here, but because our House is in ventilated properly, it was like a hot box. And we were running in the 80s in the house and we did everything we could to mitigate it. 20 minute fix and we were back up and running and now it's finally cool again. Kind of frustrating, but you got to deal with the things, even if it is the heat and the humidity.

Why Creativity Equals Productivity With Author Joe Sanok

"You have got so much to say about creativity and productivity. Why is it that creativity causes us to be more productive. What's that all about. Yeah i think intuitive we know this and a lot of the science backs it up as well but just think about when you have your best ideas you know when you're stressed out or maxed out. It's when you're taking a shower when you're out for a hike when you're on a long drive and maybe turn off the radio for a while It's when our brains are able to rest when we're not really in that fight flight or freeze and so we know that if we're going to be more creative it doesn't start with having a week. That's maxed out and stressed out and then we have a weekend where we're just recovering that we go right back into it. It's where we start with the slowing down when we start with that that mindfulness and we allow our brains to relax. I and ask those hard questions of. What is this weekend. need From me and from my brain. How do i best myself for this next week. the idea that we work five full days and then for two days we take off. It just doesn't work anymore. And as we look at the research on the forty workweek and about making thursday the new friday we see emerging more and more that countries and businesses that are switching to a four day of work three days off are seeing better productivity and creativity.

The Port Chicago Disaster

"One is quite sure exactly what happened but at ten eighteen pm there was a loud crash. The seminars reported as sounding like metal and timber falling down. This probably a crane or one of the booms which had collapsed then. There was the sound of an explosion and then a fire about five. To seven seconds later there was a massive explosion that destroyed the entire facility. It was one of the largest explosions in history up until that point pilots in the air at the time saw a fireball three miles into the air. The blast was felt in boulder city nevada. Four hundred thirty miles away. There was damaged onto buildings in san francisco forty eight miles away debris landed over two miles away and the plane which witnessed it said it's all white hot debris shooting past it. At an altitude of seven thousand feet. It coastguard fireboat near the pier was thrown six hundred feet or one hundred and eighty meters away where it eventually landed in the water and sank. There were three hundred and twenty men and the peer when the explosion occurred all of them died instantly. Two thirds of the dead. Were african american enlisted men who were working on the dock. In fact this explosion by itself was responsible for fifteen percent of all of the african american deaths in the second world war. I've got a previous episode on the halifax harbour explosion during world war one. The portugual explosion wasn't quite as large. But it wasn't too far away the biggest difference and the reason why the fatalities were lower. Portugal is that there were no civilians on the base. There were two hundred and fifty other injuries and of the men who were killed only fifty one wherever identified an inquiry was launched only four days after the explosion and the ruling was that it was probably the fault of one of the enlisted men. Nothing was mentioned about the poor safety conditions and the lack of training

A $1.5T Asset Manager Is Getting Into Bitcoin

"Block works. This morning tweeted a job application from franklin templeton who are hiring a traitor dash crypto space currency. Yes that is how they described. Crypto currency crypto space currency. Franklin templeton is a company that was founded in nineteen forty seven it went public in nineteen seventy one and is basically just kept growing. The firm has more than four hundred fifty different mutual funds. The story here of course is just the continued integration of bitcoin into large institutional offerings and the current system along that front bitcoin magazine reported on a similar story. Customers at vast bank can now buy and sell bitcoin directly from their. Fdic insured checking accounts. Vast ceo. brad. Scrivener has made the argument in the past that he thinks that banks should be the best place to buy bitcoin quote or familiar with regulation. We're going to do the right things. We're going to do things to make sure the financial system is kept safe and sound. There's lots of different customers out there. That may want to control everything and have their own wallet. They're on passcodes. And then there are those who are crypto curious and may prefer to work with the bank or an intermediary just because they don't quite understand. Now that's the same argument driving a lot of the partnerships that breakdown sponsor ninety has been doing to get bitcoin buying selling in holding straight into customers bank accounts. So it's clear is. The mainstream is just plotting right along coming to bitcoin at its own pace in the meantime btc. The acid is back up over fifty k. But still many are wondering where. Bitcoin is from a market perspective for that. I'm going to do a mini long. Read sunday right in today's episode by reading this excellent thread from my friend and frequent breakdown. Guest travis cling he writes. Bitcoin is an interesting spot at the moment. A couple thoughts forty four days ago. The bitcoin chart was in big trouble. It had broken all sorts of support levels and had many people seriously doubting whether thirty thousand could hold again in the subsequent forty four days. Bitcoin covered a tremendous amount of ground. It did that thing it does. Sometimes we're just runs away from people. Oh you thought you were going to buy thirty or even lower. How about forty eight. A massive amount of damage has been repaired to the chart. We punched major fibs and points of control retested and held. Sr flips battled with the two hundred day and then firmly reclaimed.

"four days" Discussed on Today, Explained

"I'm sure an idea like this would have some opposition. Are people afraid that this will make every american worker. You know one. V less productive for our capitalism. Sure so that's a worry that is natural for people to have and actually this was studied. There was a big study in iceland. Where a whole swath of workers had their hours cut by a few hours each week. I think they did. They did a thirty six hour. Workweek and the studies found that by and large productivity. Either stay the same or actually went up So people were getting more done in fact and then of course there are all these. Other benefits rate. People were happier. They were spending more time with their families. They had better social lives. You know in the study there was like a dad being quoted saying my kids are so excited when it's my half day because they know that we're going to hang out and she's like really sweet that's nice and actually since the studies came out. Iceland decided to enlarge part. Make this permanent so now. Eighty six percent of the population is either already working a shorter workweek or they have a contract that guarantees them that shorter workweek in the future. So this dream is going to be a reality there. Why do they think that people become more productive when they work less. I think there's a couple of things here. One is i mean and if you work in an office i think this will resonate with you or if you used to work in an office before the pandemic i think the resonate which is that. Some of our time at work is wasted. We have a lot of meetings to go to. Some of those meetings could probably be an email. Some of those meetings go on too long. There's also research showing that like after a certain amount of work. We just lose our ability to do work like not completely but we get worse that working so anyone who's just worked a super long week has felt this. You get burnt out. You get tired. you're not as efficient. You make more mistakes so a shorter workweek You know. Avoid some of those problems. Is this just another way for for white collar workers to end up with another benefit though and they'd have one more day off where potentially service industry workers in restaurants or movie theaters or big box stores would wind up with even more work to do tending to all these people. I think that's a real worry. And one thing that was really interesting to me about the iceland. Research is that it wasn't just office workers who were part of the research. It was also like i think law enforcement officers and folks who worked in childcare or also elder care so especially some of these care work jobs. It's not like you're spending that much time in meetings. When you're caring for toddlers i know because they have a toddler. Those are labor intensive jobs. And when you're on your on but they still found ways whether it was maybe the daycare center hires more people you know. Maybe it adjusts our slightly. They still found ways to make. These shorter workweeks work. So i think really the key if we're going to do something like this would be making sure that exactly what you're talking about. It's not just a benefit for white collar workers this is like a real shift across the economy and that it's coupled with making sure that people who have really unpredictable schedules or not enough hours have enough that they actually have enough work or enough benefits. They can live on them and for all the people who think this is just like a pie in the sky idea. I it's worth remembering right that that's so was you. Bi until during the pandemic the former president and the current. One just decided to give people fair sums of money right. Do you think because of that were a little bit closer to ideas like this than we were. Say before the pandey. Yeah i mean. We've seen so many things policy-wise that i thought we'd never see you know whether that's the child tax credit whether it's the stimulus whether it some of the stuff in the american rescue plan I think there's been this acknowledgement of people's basic needs in a way that there really wasn't before and i've just started to see a kind of cultural change. Maybe this is too optimistic but it used to be that whenever you talked about work and people work too much like people would kind of roll their eyes and especially you know in media or if you talked to like white collar professionals everyone would be like of course. We were too much but no. We're never going to do anything about it. That'd be ridiculous. And i just feel like it's different now. I feel like frankly. America's traumatized from the pandemic. Even those who are kind of relatively insulated I think there's a serious epsom needs a change there's a serious onslaught work is broken and for the first time when you say people work too much everyone kind of perks up listens and i'm hoping that that means maybe there's appetite for changing this not just going back to the way it was and north.

"four days" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Literally or like jewelry and the thing yes money. Yes by check every two weeks. A bank account have a bank account. Okay so it's like there's this sort of idea of like you know maybe the man in the suit going off to the office or maybe the man in the jumpsuit. Going off to the factory but that was never every worker. There's always been lots and lots of workers who weren't going to the office and they weren't going to the factory and those folks never really had access to the kind of quote unquote good job that we think of as kind of formulating the american dream and what happens between then and now then we got this situation where there's fewer and fewer of the good jobs and more and more of the bad jobs manufacturing for example they've really eroded in the. Us service has really exploded. There's lots more service jobs. This was an industry that never had the same kind of norms ray. These weren't good jobs. They didn't have good wages. They didn't have hours all this kind of stuff. Then we have the erosion of unions so workers have less power to bargain for their conditions. And things just kind of get crappier and crappier for lack of a better word. Pensions become less. Common in favor of sort of 401k's and retirement accounts that rely way more on the worker to be putting away money versus somebody. Kinda putting away money for you. The rate of people who have health insurance through their job goes down. Wage growth stagnates. There's lots of actors. We can point to but basically overtime. You're nineteen fifties job. That's kind of providing all your needs it just just becomes less and less common fewer and fewer people have that kind of job and even the people who do have jobs that are providing for all their needs. It feels like those people might be working more now than ever before rates. So the other thing we've seen is that you know white collar work sort of professional work you know those workweeks and those work days of just gotten really long and i think something that we've seen a written about. This elsewhere is just a general worsening of people's schedules over time so there's been sort of a weakening of the overtime rules in the fair labor standards act some more and more people are exempt more and more people are in this category where you actually can be asked to work more than forty hours a week and you don't have to be paid overtime so then you're hours can balloon to whatever your boss feels like. There's also been a rise in what derek thompson at the atlantic calls work. Ism which is this idea that you work should really be the centerpiece of your life and your identity. It should be really important. You should really give be giving all of yourself to work. It sounds unhealthy. Sure and it is but at the same time like that. Attitudes incredibly common. It's super common in our industry. You know. I felt that way from time to time. You probably have to think a lot of quote unquote knowledge workers or kind of encouraged to embrace this work. As i'm an is also great for our bosses right not to be you know like subversive or whatever but it's good for capitalism the more than we feel like work as our religion so all this stuff contributes to folks who maybe their job does provide them health insurance maybe they have a 401k. Their job might still be making their life kind of bad because they're at work all the time. Then you have service workers who have a rise in what's called just in time scheduling. Which means their schedules can be. Super unpredictable walks. Who's been at starbucks. Eight years says she sees the advent of optimal scheduling. When i was hired managers would be fired if they weren't putting schedules out. Three weeks in advance But now it's every week. And i believe it's the new automatic system only allows them to do a week in advance. But we're required to give six months in advance of availability of when we're available to work so like even if they're not working really really long hours maybe they have no idea what hours are going to be week to week. They have to be on call constantly. You know sometimes they're doing claw opening quote unquote which is like where you close the store and then you open the store. Six hours later tie channel today. I'm gonna give you tips on how to survive the dreaded khlopin. I do a coffin once a week which is closed on one day and that opened the very next day and these are my tips to help you survive a late night followed by an early morning so it can be almost like having a fifty our eighty hour work week just because you never know when someone's going to call you so just generally scheduling has become this huge problem and we're all sort of at the mercy of our work. I think in a way that labor reformers in the middle of the last century never never intended us to be not to mention a lot of people in the service industry in the people who may have been close opening. Lost their jobs during the pandemic right so you know. I think that the pendulum just made all this worse in so many different ways that we can talk about but one big thing it did is wipe away people's jobs. Millions of people lost their jobs last year. Disproportionately people in the service industry. Disproportionately low wage jobs or people didn't have a lot of savings they couldn't afford to lose a job. And if your job was just providing you the minimum level of security before now. There's nothing so. I think that was like the first step of being really disillusioned with jobs and employment in america. Okay so to recap just some of what you said. We're losing a lot of our worker. Protections other people are choosing to work more than ever. then there's people who are being abused in their work situations. A lot of those people have lost their jobs and then there's millions of people who are quitting their jobs. Where do we go from here. That ha- sounds really dark. Sean but i think that we're seeing some interesting cultural changes right now and like the biggest thing that we've seen is that i think the pandemic has kind of led to this collapse in the meaning of work for a lot of people so you know even over and above you know sort of money and security health insurance all the things we just talked about you know. I think there's been the sense that work provided a sense of purpose for people it provided the sense of camaraderie. You know you're together with your co workers. The pandemic really wiped a lot of that away. You know suddenly office workers rate. We're working out of our houses. Were on zoom. And i think that sense of purpose like people are reevaluating their sense of purpose right. Now they're questioning. you know. this is a time of trauma. This is a time when people lost their lives. Like what's really important. And i think all that reevaluation part of what. It's leading to his people leaving their jobs. Switching jobs is now easier than ever for a lot of people that are more companies going remote. Maybe these are people who have saved some money over the past year and so they're looking at their lives and saying why am i living like this. Why am i not doing something. I'm passionate about.

"four days" Discussed on Today, Explained

"Today explained. Thanks for joining us again. this coming. Monday is labor days. We're gonna take the day off and have a four day workweek but the company we work for vox. Media went ahead and gave us another day off this coming friday aka tomorrow so we're feeling extra lucky to have two four day workweeks in a row. Now i usually don't question extra days off and on the show today we're gonna talk about how are changing attitudes around work. Might actually change how we work. So i had to inquire about the extra friday off this morning. I hit up my boss's boss's boss's boss my great great grand boss. Sean i think just call us co workers. Jim bank off c. o. Vox media. why did you give us all another day off. Well it starts with the fact that we have all been working our tails off through a pandemic and we wanted to enable and empower our managers to encourage people to take more time but what we also found is that. It's sometimes hard to do that because we have things to do and the things that we have to do not only revolve around our own schedules but revolve around our coworkers schedules and revolve around schedules of people outside of the company to so we figured by having a day that everyone has off that would allow people to not feel the pressure of having to be there for their co workers When they were collaborating on a project you know so for all those reasons it all added up to like yeah. Let's do this and we're happy that we did okay. As my colleague. Jim mentioned working through the pandemic has changed things. This isn't just a theory at this point. It's a game changing reality. My other colleague anna north wrote about it for vox in an article provocatively titled the death of the job. Yeah i mean. I was really inspired. By the sort of idea of the so-called great resignation people are quitting their jobs in droves. And what's been dubbed the great resignation pushing job vacancies to all-time highs and a new survey from productivity for laddis found that fifty four percent of respondents are looking to change jobs and forty three percent. Say they're queer passive stalled or quote slowed to a crawl for context. Four million people quit their jobs in april alone danes so to be clear that's not like in a year that's in a month. It's a huge huge number. It's a record. And so it really kind of wanting to look into why and what the pandemic has done to jobs and you know work just got traumatic difficult and stressful in in new ways. But i think the sort of flip side of that is that it has opened up this door to talk about what should the role of work be in people's lives. And i think that can actually be an interesting conversation that maybe can open the door to making our lives a little better and i want to get to all the changes and what could come of them eventually but in your piece you talk a lot about the history of the american job. What did you discover when you looked into the background right so a lot of the things that we sort of think of as mainstays of jobs today for better for worse. They didn't come about by magic. They came about because labor activists fought for them so for example people in factories used to work six day week seven day weeks. You know incredibly long work. Weeks before labor organizers sort of started working on this issue worked on it for a long time and then during the nineteen thirties with the new deal. We start to see these labor reforms getting enshrine into law after money. Requests my papa. Congress passed a found labor standards but what we call the wages hours bill so we see the fair labor standards act which means if you work over forty hours a week. You're supposed to get overtime far reaching program. The most boss cited grow the benefit of work that has been adopted here or in any other. Country and labor organizers are kinda pushing for other things too. they don't always get them. A lot of folks. Wanted universal health care for example back in the nineteen thirties. We think of this is something that were arguing today. But this was an argument back then. How about the theory that the community can afford with the individual. Can't oh so you've been bitten by that boga. The people have pockets. Bill pay ten cents each week could give him a medical service very beautiful idea. And maybe in nineteen sixty practical one but it just won't work. They wanted a kind of universal retirement system. You know something to really take care of people when they're to work they didn't really get either of those things. And so in some cases what they kind of settled for. Were some benefits that were tied to your job so for example health insurance tied to your job or pensions. That were tied to your job. Where if you work a certain number of years at a certain company then they'll kind of take care of your retirement so instead of saying we're going to have the social safety net that takes care of everybody then we kind of get this conception where your job is sort of what takes care of you. What is like the ideal version of your job is supposed to take care of you. And when does that sort of peak. Yes so we kind of get to this idea. And the the late forties the nineteen fifties in of home vigorous workman rise to meet a new day and a new opportunity. No morning none. The nation's workman prompting them to their daily service. There's a certain category of job often. These are manufacturing jobs. These are jobs that are typically held by white men prejudice shop steward for the union which has an agreement with a mill. He represents the workers on the plants labor management committee these days. They're discussing production problems because these are jobs that thanks to the fair labor standards act. There's supposed to be forty hours a week or you get overtime. They pay you a certain amount you know. Sometimes they pay you enough that it doesn't just take care of your needs. It takes care of your kids and it takes care of you know you have a partner who may be able to stay home and take care of those kids you know. It's the sort of what they call the quote unquote family wage. And then you get benefits out of that job right you get healthcare and you had a pension at some point so when you no longer are able to work or you're no longer want to work you actually get paid and you can take time and you can rest and play with your grandchildren. This is the sort of you know. Quote unquote american dream ideal. And we're talking ideals but this ideal was only ideal for a segment of the population right. I think we have this ideal of how jobs used to be and the reality. Is that these kinds of jobs. Were only ever for certain people for starters. There were lots of people who are left out of the fairly rare standards so that includes domestic workers and agricultural workers who were disproportionately likely to be black or a latin acts or other people of color and then it's also the case that there were big sectors of the economy that never had these kind of quote unquote good jobs so if you worked in a customer service job you worked in retail other service sector type jobs. They didn't really experience the same kind of nineteen fifties peak so one labor historian. I talked to pointed out a lot of retail jobs. Were just considered women's jobs so the idea is if you like became a salesperson a sales girl quote unquote for example that people your employer would assume you don't actually need enough money to support a family because you're only a woman you just need quote unquote pin money. Which is like money to buy pens.

No nation no nation has ever done anything like it in all history. The only the united states had the capacity. And the will to do it and we did it today. The extraordinary success of this mission was due to the incredible bravely and selfless courage. In the united states military and our diplomats and intelligence professionals the extraordinary success of this mission keeps using that term ban. no disrespect to our fine president.

The B.S. Media Narratives About Biden's Afghanistan Failures

"Going through these media narratives that RBS all week. We added one just now. Don't let them say oh, Biden was locked in. This was a Trump deal from the start to surrender to the Afghanistan to the to the Afghan Taliban. It was a trump deal, but softened Biden could have done and by the way, the only reason the Taliban didn't attack us was because of this deal, Surrender Deal. Trump Sign and M. Biden. Biden was locked in There were no attacks during the it's not true. There were attacks during the deal, and Trump responded because the Trump deal with the Taliban was the conditions based deal. In other words, you mess with us. We are going to punish you and rain heads down on your heads. And that's exactly what happened. I just read to you the headline. Just four days after Trump agreed to this deal with the Taliban to get out of Afghanistan, just four days is simple math, even for liberals. Trump bombed them because they didn't go by the deal. Biden did nothing like that. Biden and Biden said no conditions were getting out empty out the prisons. Screw Bagram, leave our people behind. Don't let them blame Trump. But the most disgusting narrative. Told you we do it a little bit in reverse. Someone we've been covering all week is the and this is probably one of the dumbest short term. Narrative efforts at spinning an hour if I've ever seen is this effort to blame Americans? Sake, did it again yesterday. I'm going to get to that audio, too. It's just disturbing. See they're they're going to blame. Americans are leaving behind their setting it up right now, and the spin is going to be. They wanted to stay as if Afghanistan is like the Jersey Shore or something in the summer Ocean city like a Hamptons resort or something. It's a reality show.

"That i don't know somebody somebody right in and let us know if somebody's audits. If you know how. This should be pronounced because i also see so. I can see it as i see. They wanna keep the the french pronunciation the total energies but also see being a play on their name and it's total energies. Kinda cool right then. Of course there's sponsors one of our sponsors amazon to tell you. Welcome for that introduction but almost as bad as your other segue but when you read this article there's part of this that's actually very strategic is going on so even though we know amazon will amazon's one of our sponsors reload them death i did you know amazon has electrical distribution part of their business honestly. I'm not surprised i mean. Jeff bezos just went to space in a large phallic thing rocket. So okay so there's a couple of things going on here so to tell energies amazon. Basically sign an agreement and what to- towels wanting from amazon is help with their cloud services and they also want to by about five hundred megawatts of renewable energy in the us and here in europe. And amazon's gonna supply that renewable energy so amazon very interesting company. Jeff bezos regardless. What you'd think about him is a genius and what he's done is very beginning. He founded market that he could disrupt with technology which ridgely books right totally disrupted that market owned it then started selling other stuff and they had to invent a lot of technology to make efficient because he had to compete against the walmarts of the world right and that technology eventually got to point where it stood on his own and they could sell the technology. That's amazon web services right. Well as the company grew as amazon grew and as the company became more aware of their impacted environment. They want it to lessen their carbon footprint and one of the ways they could do is generate their own renewable atrocity just like the headed generate their cloud. Right now they're doing so good and generate no new electric. They can now sell it to other people. I'm telling you people maybe not in my lifetime but somewhere in the future you could be watching. Tv or virtual reality and you can see people mining presses minerals and space and those ships say halliburton amazon on. I'm telling you it's coming so what's happening here is total is now committing financially to buy power through amazon because it's renewable so now total can also get those carbon credits for reducing basically.

Invest foreign investment dollars and we can get our hands around us. The researchers documented eleven serious security incidents against ships. That was just just the first half twenty. Twenty seven yeah. So that lebanese two zero. Yes okay so. The next article is top three. Us refiners set for first prophet since pandemic started by a cake or cupcakes. Up here the exxon valeros michelle deer park. They have literally went through hell. During twenty twenty there was there was almost no demand for refined goods but because of the pandemic they could use that downtown to do plant maintenance. It's still not back to where it needs to be but but like we talked about earlier. Demand for jet fuels has went up dramatically. Gasoline diesel has been going up and demand for. Petrochemicals are going up soon. We're headed back to where we need to be from the refinery part of the business now. One of the things that i'm slightly worried about is refinery the fire business typically is a high volume low margin business. Make a little bit of margin over very large amounts of money were very large chunks time but now page. The price of both crude natural gas has gone up dramatically. And that's the refineries raw feedstock so now that demands coming back and they see the light in the tunnel. They could start making money again. All of a sudden they're all feedstock. Prices going up with disco hurt their margins. So they're kind of catch twenty two position. The more modern refineries here in europe. Or it'll be fine. The ones i'm worried about the very old refiners that aren't as efficient and right now every penny counts and the dow shing part of business you know. They're looking at the major refiners here in the us looking about one dot three billion dollars in combined earnings. That's actually really cool. But this could be a peak and it could actually go back down if the price of natural gas and crude steve keep going up. Or if this resurgence of the delta variety of the covert nineteen virus starts clampdown countries in in travel again so fingers crossed the refiners. You know like. I said they went through hell. And they're just not getting their head above water. And i just hope they will keep their head above water for a little while. Okay so fbi. China is behind past oil and gas pipeline cyber attack.

"Ground proposal representativity you've been in the trenches trying to to work this out and make some sort of a deal happened. Can you just give us the latest. I know all the details are there yet. But what would this plan. Look like if it were by. Well the latest been mad we now see on the senate side that roughly mirrors a lot of what we negotiated in the problem solvers caucus in the house of the problem solvers caucus is twenty nine democrats twenty nine republicans. We a couple weeks ago. Put forward our proposal building bridges about one point two five trillion our now seeing movement in the senate with twenty one senators ten democrats and republicans approximately a trillion dollar package. A so now. We're seeing some movement in the senate so making us optimistic that we can't get a bipartisan. Deal package representativity. What have you heard from from the leadership. Both in the house and in the senate. Because i think that's been a big question to every time you have more republicans who come on board. There's the threat that you'll lose some of the progressive democrats. Where where does the leadership stand. Listen i think that in this package. There's nothing more bipartisan than infrastructure. I think we can all agree. We have crumbling roads and bridges across this country waterway. Our waterways are ports. There's definitely on a consensus that we need to invest in infrastructure. And certainly a lot of this is gonna be the devils in the details especially in the wars you know. We made a concerted efforts. I talk about the size than look at the scope. That's exactly what we're doing. This very complicated. I think that we're seeing movement in their certainly an appetite to get something done the pay for us have to be the trickiest. Part of all of this is going to come. You think with with taxes being raised. Because that's been a sticking point for at least the republican leadership. Yeah i mean first of all. There's a slew of proposals on the pay for. I think the most important is closing the tax gap i ins and also looking at some partnerships public private partnerships. So obviously this is gonna be the the big negotiating. Part of this package is how we pay for all of this. But what we're seeing in the package that came out of the senate is five hundred. Seventy nine billion dollars of new spending. I think that's a sign that we're moving in the right direction governor hogan. How important is this from maryland. What do you need in terms of infrastructure right now in your state. Well i would say all governors some both sides of the aisle really believed this is a top priority. And we're pleased that we're finally making progress. This really isn't a republican or democratic issue. I think the leadership on both sides. You know didn't wanna go big enough. The democrats want to too big that include a lot of things that had nothing to do with infrastructure. And i take my hat off to our group the problem solvers caucus which is part of no labels and the group of the g. Twenty group of bipartisan senators in senate for getting us where we are and we had very encouraging news out of the white house the president sounding like he does want to continue on in a bipartisan. Way it means it means a lot of means jobs as coming out of this pandemic trying to grow our economy and put people to work and it's critically important. It also i think is is the administration's to show that they are willing to work in a bipartisan way. As as go biden on talked about in his inauguration representative leave out a all ask one more time just in terms of what you hear from the leadership. What is nancy pelosi. Signaled what has schumer signaled or are they waiting to see what president biden signals. I definitely we're expecting hear back from the white house today on this proposal of the senate on. I think that that's going to be an indication of where we're heading. I mean i. I know that there's a definitely an appetite to get this done on a bipartisan manner. This part of the package. Obviously looking to conciliation as well listen. This is the biggest investment infrastructure that we've ever seen so clearly. It's complicated taking some time. I think most importantly the leadership wants us to get a package done. And and so. I'm looking forward to hearing what the white house has to say today. In response to the senate plan if the white house scuttled at this point is that is that. Is that game over legit. I don't think the white house is going to scuttle it. I definitely been in contact with all of us both house side in senate side as we walked through these steps in trying to get to this package of the president has made it clear he does not wanna raise taxes on individuals. Earning under four hundred thousand dollars In obviously we have to. There's gonna be some serious negotiations on. And they take time. I think we need to look at all of this in a holistic manner on and so. I think that we're going to see the step by step forward. That would preclude. If you don't want to raise taxes on anyone under for making under four hundred thousand dollars that would preclude raising the gas tax. Which is something that some democratic senators have kind of been in favor of to correct. Yes i you know. I think the president has been very clear that he does not wanna raise taxes on those making under four hundred thousand dollars. Guest certainly would be that and again. I think we have to look at all. These pay for says a package i. You can't work at one of them in a vacuum and so And again is gonna be the hardest part of these. Negotiations is how we pay for this. Governor are there any taxes or any pay for is that you would be opposed to or is it just more important for you to to see some sort of deal come together and some sort of infrastructure spending get put into place whereas representative lisa reaching the spending number. It was the was the big first step to go from two point. Three trillion down to one trillion. So that's that's the we're all the effort has been But i think we can really do this without raising taxes. And the smith different proposals from the house problem solvers. And from some of the senator you know there's there's going to be pushed back from both sides about raising taxes. I'm not sure. That's what america wants but private sector of public private partnerships is a big part of it. Unspent money on other things and shifting around some priorities and where we're spending money now can get pretty close and you know we've got to figure out the last Last few miles to go On how we're going to come up with bay force clever last few miles for the infrastructure.

Nights a couple of days, and then I had to fly back against a couple of days. And it went through so many wonderful actors that move in the end, it was about scheduling, I was on it, right? From the very beginning me, Don t the first actors to Austin, and the native months later, we made it and I'd heard this person that person. And yeah, we did it because scrip was so co good how do you? We're almost out of how do you? How you master an American accent? How do you do are you thinking in as an American when you're in your head? I'm trying to wrap my brain around because we don't get to master yours. Very no though because the the American accent. Everything's loose tongue is loose the jurors much more slack. You don't need you to light tongue doesn't come food is much with an English accent. Everything's moving quite lot year. Yeah. So you just don't have the same must you have to develop muscle to in English. We get to relax when we adopted accidents. You work with the trainer for that. Sometimes it depends budget. They've got for the movie and nowadays, I can just I usually the best way of doing is find a person to copy right because that you can have like a Californian accent. But you get three people from California, their accents, completely different derive. Yeah. So it's about what accident would my person have in solo. Do you have an American accent member? British you've reject. Yeah. Don't british. Yeah. But family enough, I think the thing that's most helpful is having kind of music background as well. Because it's like learning sown.

I would have adopted there. Yeah. I can help it. Yeah. I was with someone had a different accent to me. I get I just I just used to be fluid like that just didn't have I wasn't. I didn't have a hold on my staff also. But that's a person who is a medium who can who can Akon do it. Yeah. A person in into it. You can just I just I feel the people might have boundaries.

"We don't have a thing. One thing to tonight. We just have this one thing, and it's a bad thing. It's election season. So, of course, everywhere you look there are yard signs sometimes on fortunately, people do bad things to yard signs fact life in Lincoln, Nebraska, congressman Jeff fourteen berry is running for reelection. That's fourteen berry. Well this week. Some rascal went vandalized one of Jeff fortenberrys yard signs. Someone else posted a photo of it on Facebook. And some other people on Facebook had a little laugh of what was done now as you can see the first thing, they did was they cover the congressman realized with some ridiculous, oversized googly eyes. And then a piece of white tape was applied to turn the Owen his name to an A resulting in just really juvenile joke about flatulence, and you can decide for yourself. If that kind of thing is funny to you. I know I've made my decision and then down there at the bottom. It says strong families strong communities strong odor. See? That would be a reference back to the part where his name was changed to Martin Barre. So yeah, that's the kind of thing it's on Facebook. And maybe if you have or juvenile sense of humor chuckle, click the like button, here's where the story gets really crazy because one of the hundreds of people that like this post on Facebook as a college professor at the university of Nebraska Lincoln named Ari Cohen and sometime after he liked it on Facebook. The professor got a phone call from the United States capitol. It was congressman fortenberrys chief of staff a man by the name of Dr William Ren Archer the third and he was not happy when he couldn't reach Cohen Archer emailed, the chair the political science department can the dean and then the chancellor of the university of Nebraska Lincoln, oppressor Cohen and chief of staff Archer did finally speak on the phone for nearly an hour. The professor recorded the conversation, you're going through and seeing what I have liked. On my pride when my. On my private trace book page. Right. I know. But what's your liking is new? It's not. It is how do we know that the thing that was that? I that I clicked on. How do I know that that's actually something that happened in the world rather than a Photoshop? Don't you're trying. Eight. Relation in Franklin Franklin we ever for opportunity to put you out there in front of everybody in even put clearly why is that? Setzer liking vandalism. We can do that publicly. But you like that I think it'd be that's our first amendment right to I think it'd be a terrible idea for you. If I'm being honest, a gal. Oh. Because the because the optics of this are terrible rain. I don't mean. My name is not rain. It's. My apologies. Let me go with Dr Archer that will be easier. All jokes aside. That's the chief of staff to current serving United States congressman using the power of the office to threaten to college. Professor for liking a photo on Facebook. Yeah, I'd say that's a it's bad optics. One of the biggest stories of the Trump era is the massive political mobilization of women in the very first day after the inauguration when millions participated in the women's marches to the record number of women running for office in this year's elections earlier today, I got to sit down with three women who have been pillars of the feminist movement for decades, Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, and Robin Morgan the co founders of the women's media center to get their unique perspective on this moment..

"It's really about the depth of allegiance. I. I hardened by the fact that in that report the woman said I thought the Republicans were going to act as some type of a bulwark against Trump, and they clearly have not clearly apart and parcel of the same. And so maybe I can understand that. But you know, it's not like we didn't know who Donald Trump was well that as you go and that this stuff is particularly new and innovative from him. Maybe the idea that Republican can't trust Republicans because this is actually who they are that made motivation of those people know suburbs. I think the bet that he made in two thousand sixteen which bore out and the bet they're making again is Republicans are gonna come home in the end, they may not like it. They made they made complain. But in the end, they're gonna come home, the Republican party, and they're gonna come home to Donald Trump. No matter how disgusting the rhetoric is. That's the bet they're making. Yeah. And now we have literally blood on their hands right now, we have Donald Trump. Rhetoric and all the things that he saying inciting violence among white to premises. Literally. We have eleven Jewish people who are dead right now because the skies inspired by the kind of person that Donald Trump is and the kind of people that he associates himself with and so I think that would voters are seeing is they're saying, look, we don't want to be associated with this kind of like evil at this point is one thing when it sport. Oh, it's political sport. Yeah. The Democrats in their healthcare, whatever. But now we're actually talking about a leader who is inciting violent and people are dying as a consequence of it. Yeah. I mean, I hope that's the case. And I'd like to think it is the case. And there's also. They may have been those Republicans who came home a lot of them came home for two reasons the supreme court and tax cuts, and they managed to get those two things they also came home. And then the other thing here is I came home because of Hillary Clinton and how they felt about Hillary Clinton and the Komi letter. And I think part of the thing that I think Trump is trying to rerun the script in two thousand sixteen which was a forced choice between him and clearly Clinton whereas this election much more as a thumbs up comes down on him. Here's the thing is that if tax cuts with such a big deal for the public, and based and they'd actually be running on Brock Obama said that earlier today did actually have campaign ads talking about. Shuts the, but it's not a fundamental part of their core message the other thing around immigration to that's it's backfiring. Especially among the women that you started this with is that it was all good and five when it was just, oh, but we don't want people coming over our borders. But you're talking about taking children from their parents. That's not sitting well with anybody. We're Jenkin children out of the arms of parents. We're trying to talk about people who are coming here in Mead in despair as if they're malicious that's not really voting, and I agree with you. And I think to a certain extent with the tax cuts. It could be dog chasing the catching the car. That's why it's not salient. It's already there..

"For every man woman and child issue through a Medicare for all system. You've got to be talking about raising the minimum wage to a living wage, fifteen bucks. And now you've got to be talking about climate change and the transformation of our energy system. You have to be talking about the demand that the wealthy and. Large corporations it at a time when we have massive income and wealth inequality slot paying their fair share of taxes. I think those are not only good policy issues. I think it's good politics. You you've been in politics for a long time. You've you've won races. You've lost races. You know that politics ain't beanbag as the saying goes, they get get nasty down the stretch. Have you ever seen anything quite like what this president is doing in this moment? Don't no I have not you have not an nobody in this country has a you know, it it doesn't give me. Any pleasure. Chris to define him as a pathological liar. I have conservative friends one not lies to talk about to talk about this president as somebody who is trying to divide our people up when you will remember remember after nine eleven George Bush, very conservative president. He went to a mosque to say this was not an attack by Muslims. It was an attack by a handful of terrorist. You remember that? Yes. This guy is something different who will say anything do anything in order to gain power. And while he's dividing us up. He's off busy be giving tax breaks to the rich and trying to throw billions of people off the health insurance that they have. So I think it is imperative that we rallied the American people not only against Trump, but around a progressive agenda, which the man's the government works for all of us. Not just wealthy campaign contributors. All right, Senator Bernie. Sanders. Thanks for making a little time tonight. Joining me now from one of the midterm elections. NBC news political analyst, Charlie cook at her publisher of the legendary and upon a Mus cook political report whose latest asked if there has been a late nudge towards Democrats. I that that piece right there. What evidence? Do you see that? We're talking to all kinds of pollsters consultants on both sides in watching a lot of data. And what we saw was. There was one reality last summer than we saw the cavenaugh flight move things over towards Republicans in it looks like maybe after Pittsburgh we've seen a comeback nut pre Cavanaugh, but back towards that general direction. And as you said at the top of the show, there's so many really close races out there that just a half a point one point makes a big difference in a bunch of seeds. I got to say, I have no idea. What's going to happen to you tonight? No one else really does. And we are we are pretty genuinely uncharted territory. Just in terms of who is going to be this electric. On Tuesday night. Right. But we're looking at I mean, like take the house, for example. You know, it's good to be between twenty and fifty. It's probably democratic net gains at twenty three. It's probably going to be between thirty and forty thirty five. So it would get Democrats gavel. It gets them able to schedule the floor, but not anything under forty six is is not as many seats as Republicans have today and they've had a hard time getting anything done, although I'll just to push back on that. I mean, a polling air in the direction, and we saw pulling Ariza corley, but that was the problem with the mid west in two thousand sixteen right correlated among certain populations and certain areas. A systematic pulling error in say the direction of three points in either direction massively changes those outcomes. Right. But the polls that were so wrong were Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania. National polls yoga the average. It was done intensive appoint off. That's true. That's actually closer than they had been back in two thousand twelve. When they showed the Obama Romney raise closer, so you know, nine tenths, right. That's as close as they get..

Might think is possible. But actually I'm thinking, maybe I'm not ready to do that. I still actually can we do. I would like to try. Word deal. Down to productivity, right? We mentioned the word if you times and measuring productivity is incredibly difficult, and we're used to be able to measure so many things with all of the clever trackers and bits of tech and analytics that we're going allies now. But measuring productivity is a really, really slippery thing. But one thing that we definitely know for sure that is linked to productivity and the decline in productivity is fatigue. So across business, the most productive days are Tuesday to Thursday. People come in with a weekend hangover or general Malays about being back in the office on Monday. They gave themselves up towards the end of the day, coming on Tuesday feeling. Now in the mind frame for work, then they gradually get tighter and tighter. We recall the parkas on a Thursday because when he used to go on a Friday, it was a bit of a nightmare, right? Everyone feels pretty good on Thursday on a Friday kind of looking at the weekend. People maybe looking to get out the office couple of hours early. It's just not the same yet. So some people do suggest that you should work longer hours, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. Then maybe come in later on Monday and leave early on Friday, but then you know the just because you're more for that devante. Do you want to be dedicating your most focus time just to work? Don't you have other things that maybe you want. Yeah, exactly. Like do you just want to waste that time lying in on Monday when you get some work done and start working towards the next weekend? Just this is just a personal aside, but I always find Tuesday's worse than Monday's. Could you know on Monday you're gonna come in and it's going to be a bit of a bit of a drag. Whereas choose day years thinking, sometimes it will be a bit better, but no is not because he's just, I'd like I'd like to add here that we all love our jobs. Eight map bird. So how's it work.
