"I can walk into a room full of people who might go. I don't wanna hear some nerd. Talk about gam bullied like. That's not the type of comedy. I sign up for and i walk in and within a few moments few jokes few punch lines gum. Right where i wanna i crush in that earns respect so To get to go out there and earn your respect as a comedian. I think that's why like you said sometimes huge comedians. You say who's your favorite comedian. They say name you never heard of because there's hundreds of comedians out there working and there's so many people out there earn that respect and for whatever reason maybe they don't have a good look maybe they don't have an act that is appropriate for wide. She did you like this is never gonna. this is never gonna play wide for whatever reason but comedians. No when you get in a room with each other and you know so low. Ceiling and their seventy people eighty people hundred. People as small comedy club doesn't really it doesn't really matter if you have the biggest social media presidents or you've wound up in the sitcom if you're asking them who their favorite comedian is. They've seen people who can just steamroll those rooms and just dictate what happens in those rooms. But you need the. You need the like expressive freedom to do it. And that's what kills me. Is i think that artistic freedom should be a blanket cover. I don't think we should be canceling comedians for some reason. Comedians get this whole different standard cancelled by like with stuff they say on stage. Obviously if your personal life if you're a monster you should be cancelled but we're starting to cancel people for like bits and jokes and it goes you know if you don't like it you don't have to tune in and that's how you personally cancelled someone. Don't buy their product. Don't buy into who they are. But you're stifling the kind of content we can get and the kind of laughs and you know funny Stories and maybe new bits and content. You're putting a muzzle on all of that by coming up with these things where you can't say that you can't do that but it's not that's not him you're saying he's on stage giving you performance you know what i'm saying like he's opening up to something he created the show you it's like it is art it is like a painting you know the shit they get away with in movies like that people don't get cancelled for for playing something in a movie and it goes will i can say that on stage with a microphone his hand and he'll get all of his fucking brands pulled the next day i have a lot of thoughts about it i have a lot of thoughts about it's there's.

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

How to Money

Should Women and Men Handle Money Differently?

"So first of all. Let's talk about how you get money in the first place and that is earn it right and according to the pew research center Women earned eighty five percent of what men earned in two thousand eighteen That pay gap is shrinking Particularly for younger workers which is a positive trend but that is still a meaningful hurdle to overcome. The pay. Gap is partly due to to work history. You know like having kids great you know. But as we mentioned with the fidelity study earlier taking time off to have quetta's like it often leads to job offers in worse income prospects not to mention the years of not generating any income which often reflects years of not investing in a workplace retirement account in particular. If there's a match there right and those are some big disadvantages to overcome yell like you said at the beginning matt that stat also reflects some structural issues when it comes to male and female pay. But here's another thing to matt When we're talking about pay women are actually often averse to asking for more money than their male counterparts. There was a survey from ron saad. Last year the found that sixty percent of women have never negotiated with employer. Overpay women are also more likely to stay at a lower wage job to according to The personal finance web site the balance. And that's not good right because even just a small bump in pay with a new employer or in a job that been in for years can have just a massive impact on your ability to earn more throughout the years and then also save more for retirement. So i think of all of the things in this episode where we see. Maybe you know women as sex falling short. It is in in the ability to ask for more at knowing what they're worth again. This is another instance where you might be listening and you're thinking i've never had a problem negotiating a race like i've never had a problem asking for more money so again. It's important to keep in mind that though the research shows us like we know any totally doesn't apply to everyone. I'm specifically thinking of two conversations with Kirstin and julian saunders. The couple behind rich and regular that was episode. Eighty six and julianne was just bragging. About how great pearson is at negotiating. Evidently she's just like the queen negotiating more. Pay if you had to listen to that upset go back and listen to that one. Is that regardless of your gender. Earning more it's just so important right and all of us could stand to our abilities on that front And we've had lots of different conversations on the show that specifically cover you know not just stories of individuals negotiating but just how to go about doing that. I'm of Ramiz sadie that was Backing up said one ten and he outlined a great process a great method You know when it comes to wanting to up your salary. You know what steps you need to take. In order to negotiate a solid race gam thinking to matt had far new darabi on the show. She is just awesome personal finance expert and at the same time. She is someone who has made a killing as a small business owner. She knows her worth. she knows. how to negotiate. Yes so like you said there are many women out. there are crushing it. Who don't have a problem and asking for what they're worth. Who don't have a problem asking for a raise. It's just when you read those statistics. There are obviously a number of women who do though. And i wanna see. That number changed for the benefit of women as a whole absolutely. Let's about spending to do women spend more. That's an interesting question. My wife personally met hates to shop. I really. She just defies the stereotypes. And actually i don't know i don't mind shopping. A little bit roles are a little bit reverse exactly but there was a study by the wharton school of business that found that women are more likely to view shopping as a recreational activity. My mom definitely fits that bill Most men wanna leave the store with their purchases quickly as possible but even though women enjoy shopping more it turns out men still spend more than women in a typical year so while men might not enjoy the process of shopping as much. They still shopping. Just from a utilitarian standpoint sure yeah also that increase spending with the stats as well. There's there's a survey from wallet hub earlier this year. They showed that men are more likely to max out a credit card. Women are apparently seven percent less likely than men to have maxed out credit card at least once in so while women they might enjoy the shopping experience. More than men do a lot of different stats. Show that women are more cost conscious. They're more likely to shop at alice. Stores more likely to to wait till something they want is actually on sale The store brands more than men. And so you know when it comes to spending this this is definitely a win in this category for sure And so i i of see this as a call to min to stop spending so much money on neighboring items fan. Yeah i feel like. I'm totally guilty of this. I totally fall into the study. I don't like to go looking for the best deal. I do because i'm spending less but like i'll look at maybe two or three different sites and then i just purchase right whereas for you like i feel you are so good at hunting and making sure you're keeping your eyes on the best deals out there making sure that you're spending the the least amount of money possible. I feel that's something that we all need to make sure that we're doing right. And so you know regardless of who you are. We should all work to just become a little more conscious and how it is that we spend our money. I gotta say mets. I don't care whether you're man or woman but store brands should be high on your list because they're going to save you a ton of money it's just like in savings when you go for the storebrand over the name brand equivalent unless it's your craft beer equivalent And you're wanting to spend a little bit more on the because it makes you feel nice. Can't name brand everything though. I think i think sometimes that's a tendency here. Maybe that men have The men just gravitate towards the name brand no matter what it is without thinking about it and that's where we need to shake things up right and we we need to consider storebrand's more frequently also too. I think we've talked about this. The quality of store brand items has gone up a whole lot in recent years. Her kirkland signature brag. There's other ones too man. Like target has some great Store brands that are better than their name brand equivalent. Sometimes so yeah. It's not just costco yeah costco rockstar Let's see let's talk about saving as well. There's more good news here. It turns out that the the savings rate for women is actually higher than their male counterparts. They save a higher percentage of their pay. They spend less of what they bring in and much of. That is due to the more frugal. Tendencies that we just highlighted when we talked about spending differences but even the women are saving a higher percentage of their income on average. They've actually got less than thirty percent of what men have in savings accounts according to data from the federal reserve from a few years ago That is likely due to the fact that overall they're still making less like we discussed earlier which means a smaller amounts of money saved overall. Yeah one of the reasons. Women have a higher savings rate as well Is that according to a survey by. Us bank women of all ages value financial security more than men do. But here's the thing than that. Focus on financial. Security can often backfire. If you keep more of your overall assets and savings and cds instead of invested in the stock market right like savings for saving for long-term goals is really important but so is investing For the really long

Understanding the GameStop Stock Market Drama

"Markets have been shaken again over the past two weeks as Reddit Day traders boosted shares of companies like game Stop. And sent short selling hedge funds running with long short funds losing 6% overall last month, and Melvin Capital alone, plummeting 53%. But most hedge funds emerged unscathed. And Steve Cohen's 0.72 even attracted $1.5 billion in new money. Here's sweet that Ramachandran, GAM investment manager, I assume hedge funds are probably reluctant to short small cap stocks right now, if the fear that the Reddit brigade might be behind those, But by early this week, game stops to the moon rally started to come back toward Earth, and not even the reddit flash mob or changes the top of the company. Could get the irrational exuberance going again reminding us why hedge funds and short sellers target companies like Gamestop investor that gets caught in the up dressed on that and doesn't understand that investing well, it looks like it's all going up to the person to click the last by understand that that could happen to them that quickly. That's former e trade financial CEO Carl Rossner. I ask Council on foreign relations senior fellow Sebastian Mallaby, if anything will fundamentally change. In the hedge fund world. I don't really, I mean, I think that hedge funds which of course, go back to the sixties, at least have proven to be an amazingly robust platform from which to think creatively about risk. Ondo. They adapt. You know they get new stuff yesterday in their ways when they began, there was no such thing as trading currencies because turned his world fixed it together one mark, it's hardly existed. You have to trade stocks by appointment on. They adapted all the way through that, As everything changed the authentic thea advent of reddit the advent of Robin Hood. This is just the latest iteration of the long, long history of financial innovation, and every time hedge funds figure it out. You also have regulators trying to figure it out as it were, after the fact we have the Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen now saying She's meeting with regulators, saying, We need to take a hard look at this about the volatility and whether this might actually put in jeopardy. Some investors. We also have hearings in Congress coming up. Do you expect there might be some tweaking, at least to the regulations? I think with respect to Robin Hood on the fact that it had to close down Access to trading on second stocks. That's the kind of market interruption which regulators order take action on. You need the infrastructure of trading to be reversed you, you know you need to look at the plumbing, and some regulators put it. And so the back part of the system will definitely because they're fresh. Look, What about on the short selling side? There have been proposals as you know, well for short, so staff to disclose their positions, individual positions, which is done is I understand in Europe. Do you think there might be a renewal of that call? And by the way, why do we have to disclose on the long side and not the short? I'm not sure, Actually, that hedge funds do disclose on the long side unless they buy more than Disposable fresh over believe it's 5% or something off the company so you could get away with a lot without disclosing. I think you know when you Taking a really big position. Probably there's it becomes a systemic threat to you. You know, you might blow up if that position where to go very badly wrong on so regulators to care about the soundness of the system ever all Have a legitimate interests, but I think it's more positions shouldn't have to be disclosed. But we certainly had some large hedge funds who took a big hit on. I wonder whether that did suggest it could be systemic risk here. Well, the beauty of hedge funds is that through their long history They've proven to be smart enough to fail. Not too big to fail, they actually can blow up and people often cite long term capital management in 1998 Aziz. The big exception actually, if you go back and look at that incident The New York Fed convened the banks to recapitalize them, but no taxpayer money. Zero went him. So freestanding hedge funds. I'm not counting here, the subsidiary of best stones that went wrong in a rage. Freestanding hedge funds have never had a taxpayer bailout mills in capital has not needed to taxpayer bailout. That's the good thing about hedge funds.

Glasgow lives in Dayton Ohio and he got scabbed he has three kids, seven eleven and sixteen, and they all love go, which is how he got into trouble. He'd been looking for a Lego X ray resistance fighter for his son that's the spaceship that Luke Skywalker an RTD to fly in star wars and so perusing facebook one day I saw an ad for it for what seemed to be a low but maybe not a too low of a price. and I thought Oh good. Let's grab that real. Quick Tom's is at the time x wings were going for about sixty or seventy dollars but the addy clicked on facebook listed it for a lot less the X. Wing was half price just thirty bucks but when the box arrived in the mail and Tom opened it, he found out that this great praise it came with a big catch. The pieces weren't the same quality they were. They were marsh more flimsy and they didn't have the same tolerances. They didn't go together quite as nicely as regular legos. The. Helmets for some of the mini figures weren't dual mode molded with a transparent pieces and solid pieces. They were just all solid and painted over yellow. Transparent Tom had bought what turned out to be a knockoff Lego set a counterfeit. He admits he may not have paid as much attention to the ads as he should have. But you know like it was this great deal and he trusted that in AD online would just be Like a group, the company that makes Lego in Denmark it more than five and a half billion dollars in sales. Last year like Oh is a huge business but this is not just a toy. Lego is an investment. The company retires it's kits after wild stops making them. So if you buy and hold something really popular and the price goes up, you could make a lot of money.

How are you? I'm holding in their. This quarantine is really something else. It sure is this year this year twenty twenty was a movie. It would be carried well, I. Keep saying even if this were a movie like the writers are taking it too far. There's too much about again on this. Now. You actually had a birthday last month. What did you do to celebrate? It an argue counting the year because I had this thing that I'm not counting this year. I'm just GONNA. Stay at my age, and I'm not moving anywhere, I mean I hear what you're saying because I will gladly stay thirty the rest of my life, but I actually turn thirty one this year and I was like. Do I just want to stay? Stay in L. A. and my home with my dog, but I I actually went home to Tennessee and safely got on the plane and wore my mask, and all that and I spend time with my family for a little bit, which was perfect, because I actually had wished. I had gone home the whole time, because like what I never had time to see my family. So you know we're usually working, but it was really nice. That's so sweet. We haven't talked about your new movie. A nice girl like you now you play a violinist who for boyfriend dumps her for being too inhibited, so you proved him wrong by creating a sex to do this when you read this. What was the first thing that went through your mind? I read the little script and I was so embarrassed and blushing the whole time. Time because there's so many things that happen because I'm not as inhibited as Mike I play. A girl named Lucy. Neil, which is crazy. It was great news that Lucy. Neil Lucille I was like. This is meant to be, but the whole I was reading it. I was just laughing my butt off, and it made me feel uncomfortable like really uncomfortable, so I knew that I. I had to do it just to break me out of my shell. It's about this girl named Lucy who you know. She's got her life planned out. She plays violin and she has a boyfriend, but she's just really comfortable and safe. She actually Kinda hates boyfriend so him breaking up with her ends up being the best thing that ever happened to her because she goes on this. This journey of finding out who she is, and she finds out who she is through her sexuality. She embraced it and she went where she made a sex to do list, and she checked them all off to listen, and then she finds the love of her life, and it really was quite a fun movie to make because we were, we went to a actual sex convention. By the way, which is mind blowing. Isn't it stuff I'd never seen before? Now, was there anything on the list that you will like? Maybe I'll try this one second data quarantine. Are that kind of Peter Interest there? Hugh I can't say which, but yeah, there are some things in the movie. That I had never heard of or done so it did it broadens my horizons.

I've seen a couple of people, but I mean I think it's I. Don't know if we'll get together to do a reunion to film anytime soon, but reunion just in general I think is like far overdue, but of course Cova Da!

How to Determine Your AI Project Needs with Dr. Charles Martin

"Kick things off you're buying in procuring. Ai By talking about vendors being able to kind of screen through who do we want to work with do we want to work with consulting firm a when Ai Software company you know which ones do we wanna work with. How do you like to think about that? Screening process from the buyer's ears perspective. I guess the first thing I would ask is do. We have a very clear idea of what we're buying for. Example are are we we by buying a service to object recognition and if so does the service usable on the data that we have so is it just a SAS service that we can he just run or are we buying some sort of vertical product that solves a particular need in our industry. Maybe it does. Ai Hey but or maybe it does something a call but it gives us an incremental lift or are we trying to bring in a consulting firm to help us solve problems and I think that many solutions particular vendors you may be selling a platform for example may have actually a very high systems integration cost as well as the development cost and I think that. That's it's difficult to really assess if you don't have a very a good understanding of the problem you're trying to solve. Yeah I was GONNA say. Assessing development cost assessing implementation cost. It sounds like you'd really need a lot of stakeholders in the room to figure out. Hey how accessible is that data and maybe we need to investigate that or is this going to work with these kinds of systems. And who do we need to talk talked to about that. I mean it really feels like there'd be a lot of moving parts in getting a sense of how do these alternative stack up in terms of ease of deployment. How do you even begin to think about that? Well look a lot of. Ai is very ethereal it just sort of sounds like you're doing this magical thing and a lot of it is understood metaphorically well it work in this area so it should work for in this other area and we have a lot of people come to us who just do not have a clear understanding of the technology analogy or what it can do or they made understand the fidelity at which they needed they think well it seems to work and we put into production yet. It just doesn't have the accuracy that we were expecting were. Our problem is so nuanced that it doesn't work for our problem. We don't get the kind of specificity that we need and I. I think that it is a problem. In people. Subway do not have experience with the technologies either a general experience technology or specific experience with the vendor. And it's very hard to gain that experience other than directly. You know visceral. You've got to work with the technology. Yeah I mean Kinda wild maybe like the all these lessons to be learned the hard way. I'm sort of imagine a company that's looking at two different vendors. Maybe it's A relatively simple use case like fraud. So we're an ECOMMERCE company. We've got you know a lot of chargebacks or potentially fraudulent transactions. And we're looking looking at you know a sift science and we're looking at some other vendor. We're trying to figure out who among these really that. That's a good look. I use them guys out here in the Valley Ali who worked at one of the major banks and they built the fraud detection system at the bank and then they went and often. Don't the fraud detection on their own and sold the bag and and you know it was built by guys working at a bank for banks and it did you know would level high live in San Francisco and somebody in Philadelphia using my credit card can figure out that was probably not me and it you know that was a very specific vertical and it does a very specific thing and you know there may be other are people in your vertical who are using it and you know I think a lot of times companies just want to do what everybody else is doing as with all investing you need need to have a lead. Yeah elite customer who can qualify that. The product is very good but if you're trying to detect some very specific kind of fraud awed specific to you you may have to invest in. RND project to figure out how to detect fraud and that is it is hard. Yeah now you're working with your own data. You're basically doing your own science in breaking down a unique problem so when I was at Ebay we we had a fraud ten years ago. We had a fraud detection team. I mean maybe if he based at the scale of a small European country so our and we had a detector Dave when we were doing neural networks ten years ago when we know and Ebay has an art department and but we had a separate department outside of are just working on fraud. And you know those guys I think. Think of Italy became balance here. But some of those guys. It's if you're trying to solve something very unique to your specific company as opposed to your industry if it's unique year company. If it's your crown jewels you may not have a lot of success working with an off the shelf solution on the other hand. If you're just trying to solve a common problem that everybody else has and it's very commodity and it's very standard. It may be okay got it till should people assume that if this is A. I'm wondering what bespoke means so like you said a particular kind of fraud so you know. Maybe we're a I don't know we're we're a platform type business business that deals with a certain kind of fake accounts or something that's may be different than the most common sorts of like payment fraud or something like that. If it's maybe something that we feel is is unique in no vendor has built specifically for. Is it safe to presume that now we're going to be looking more at consulting firms and or in house development like almost ubiquitously or do we still talk vendors that are close to it and figure out if there's a way that they could helper that almost always a recipe for failure. I'm interested in your take. Well I I think a lot of the problem with any kind of fraud that other companies aren't telling you what fraud they're receiving. Yeah unless it's you know when they're sec filings. You're not going to know so I think a lot of times people talk to vendors just to find out what's happening in the space right. They just want to know all you guys so you sold your fraud. Product of this guy so to wells does frogger where charge lobby went the same product. Just make sure we have it and you know some you may know something. We look a lot of times. People talk to vendors just because they're trying to figure out what other people are doing and a lot of times when you're trying to solve a major problem you end up hiring someone from the industry who knew what they did another another company otherwise it's just hard to know and that's the problem with things like fraud or security is that they're unknowns and I think that we don't it's not like we have a national effort to prevent fraud. I look really good example. I mean fraud in the dating online dating. I helped a an old student of mine. He started a company that got acquired. The one of the big dating firms on dating and the the entire product was a fraud selection. What would happen is when people would try to the scammers on these match match dot com and tenders and things like this right? Yeah GAM people into giving you money at fraud scamming you the scamming the custom on your blind so we invented a technology that would create a phantom platform so the fraudsters would know that they've been kicked off the platform and that was is the key idea and we were. We were just sitting in a pizza shop in North Megyn. I came up with the idea. You know that those kinds of technologies is that something that everybody has it is. Do there exists some sort of vendor that could create a phantom platform so if you have people on your platform that are bad actors. You can make them think you're still in the because what would happen is the fraudsters where they get kicked off the platform they log back in but if they don't know they've been kicked off the platform they never leave. Oh Oh that's cool. Okay yeah so finding finding like yes. So that's super bespoke. So maybe the take home anyway of two other short questions here but maybe take home is like if you're looking at a remarkably bespoke bill problem. Maybe you're quote unquote vendor landscape. You're looking at might be more of a build slash custom kind of a Shebang in terms of a consulting firm. Your in house resources says versus looking for WHO's got the the plug and play solution and I think you might find that certainly for us. It's true if you have a small company you might be solving a problem other people have and so you might be able to outsource some of the risks by working with vendor. Who develop that with you and you know maybe you own on the Ip for a year and then you about themselves abby that would be a great opportunity for a small company to come in and develop some unique Ip that is in the fraud space or in some other part of? Okay I will they can resolve other companies you get exclusivity for like a year you get thirty percent ownership but that would be a great deal and I think that's otherwise you really in and you're you're a lot of these products are I mean is not a product as much as it is a technology.

Are Sweet Potatoes and Yams the Same or Different?

Diet Science

Are Sweet Potatoes and Yams the Same or Different?

"This week. We're talking about sweet potatoes versus yams okay. What's the difference. Is there a difference. That's a good question. I get get this question all the time. When people <hes> typically usually like around thanksgiving <hes> when this particular vegetable is more prominent in the store so well for starters <hes> sweet potatoes are basically you know what we call a sweet potato in <music> our country in what we've sort of grown up with his we typically see two things in the star we see what's labeled a sweet potato and we see something labeled a yam and and what we see is a sweet potato. That's kind of more <hes> longer and more narrower in diameter shaped in a like a lighter colored skin skin almost like a tan colored skin and if you cut it open and you cook it cut it open it. The flesh inside is almost kind of like a a pale yellowish color and they kind of have a nice. We'd firm consistency like you can you can slice them and make them into like hash browns and you know or you can make sweet potato french fries out of them. The other thing that we see in the store with that we call a yam is usually a larger <hes> looking of type type of vegetable. It's got more of like a reddish. Maybe almost purplish skin on it. They tend to be fat in the center and kind of taper narrower to the edge edges and when you slice that open you you see a really dark orange colored and when you cook it it's more mushy inside like it doesn't necessarily have a firmness firmness to it like a <hes> what we call the lighter colored skinnier shaped sweet potato <hes> now however what we know oh is that both of these are actually technically botanically sweet potatoes. They're both a sweet potato. They're both reporte both are sweet potatoes and they they come from a what we call the morning glory family of plants so most people might be familiar with the morning glory flower. Okay <hes> so that family of plants. The sweet potatoes are part of that family. So where do we get the name yam vice my equa. Why do we call one a._m. And sweet potato would be a natural thing to get into right now yeah so actually the real yam a real. The actual yelm is also a tuber vegetable however they come from a completely different family and are actually part of the lilly family of plants. It's and they originated in africa and asia and there are about six hundred different varieties of this other type of vegetable called a yelm now it originated in africa and so what they kind of look like as they they are kind of tubular looking kind of like that yellowish sweet potato but the skins are really rough almost kind of bark lichen away so you would never really want to eat that skin and when you cut him open they we are sort of yellowish inside so <hes> they <hes> so they have like a whitish yellowish in some some defending on the variety and the soil oil. They're grown in they could even be purple <hes> but they <hes> they're kind of more dry and starchy tasting inside and they're they're really really not commonly found in the u._s. because they grow in africa and they're more of a food for the indigenous people that live in that part of the world so <hes> so here's what happened when the slaves were brought to the u._s. during the slavery time they when they got here of course they didn't have any yams that they were accustomed to eating in africa but when they saw the sweet potato here they it looked like a yam i am from what they knew and by the way the african word for it is niamey which is n y a._m. I and then in english i mean it's called gam so the slaves were really the ones that named that <hes> one particular type of sweet potato a yam okay <hes> but a real real yam is you don't even don't even eat here yeah exactly so. I just thought it was interesting so really it's just sort of a a renaming wing <hes> in it happened because to win when that happened when the when the slave started calling that particular type of a sweet potato yam the you know the american growers wanted a way to distinguish between the two types of sweet potatoes so they called one the yam and won the sweet potato and that's kind of the history of how we got that name i went in fact a real yam an actual yam. We would probably never find here unless maybe you went to a ethnic store of some kind to get that <hes> interesting now in terms of <hes> nutritional content both yams and sweet 'tatoes or what what we know of of yams and sweet potatoes. They're actually really high in beta carotene which is the <hes> antioxidant that gives it the orange color her or the yellow color and they actually are really even though they're sweet. They're <hes> starches and their fibers actually help lower blood sugar levels <hes> yeah so it's it's. They're actually known as good foods for diabetics diabetics. Yeah probably even better than regular white potato 8-o. Although i think white white potatoes have a value to they definitely have antioxidants and good nutrition in them but if someone has blood sugar the issues they might need to lower their starch intake so the sweet potato is probably a better choice for them. Because of the the quality of the sweet potato hey don't nutrients in it that can actually help heal their pancreas <hes> and also lower the blood sugar levels whereas a white potato doesn't necessarily have those properties to it yeah yeah <hes> so the yeah they should have sweet potatoes more often for sure yeah for sure and now that we know that both a yam and sweet potato taylor basically from the same family have a

The political cost of Pakistan's IMF loan

"Pakistan, says it has reached an agreement with the IMF on a six billion dollar loan justna sing discusses, what forced Imran Khan to seek help despite promising not to do so. And while the political cost is likely to be for his government for Stephanie, Finley and four hundred. Kareem Rasheed, Dr shave the TV new safe gooky held is. Assan IMF beyond Johnny was Stephanie. What are the terms and conditions of the six billion dollars package? That Pakistan is due to get from the International Monetary Fund. Do we know the details, yet, we don't know exactly, the agreement is still to be finalized, we expect that to happen in a couple of months, but we expect it will address Pakistan's gaping, current account deficit removed costly, energy subsidies and allow the rupee to float more freely is already fallen over twenty percent in the last year. But there are estimates that it may devalue another twenty percent and people are calling this one of the toughest IMF programs that Pakistan has seen because these reforms are expected to be introduced swiftly which will make it very hard for the average Pakistani who will have to cope with a rise in energy costs and a much weaker rupee Baucus on had already secured nine point two billion dollars in bilateral loans from countries such as Saudi Arabia UAE, an. China. Why did it have to go to the IMF, Pakistan thought that they could weather the storm when I was in his Lama Baden March? The government had said guests, they were in talks with the I m f but previously, they thought that they could get bilateral funding and sort of sort, the situation out by acting their own reforms, it became clear that, that wasn't enough. It wasn't enough money to address their obligations and Pakistan also needed the vote of confidence from the IMF that could unlock other funding and attract investors foot on Imran Khan had once declared he would rather die than beg to IMF waters. His government been telling the people of Pakistan now about the latest deal before the elections about a year ago, Imran Khan ran his political campaign promising to never go to the IMF for another loan. Now, this is something which has opponents are using against him because he's. Endeared words taken a u-turn completely gone back on his promise. So it's not an easy situation politically for the prime minister to handle, because it's a matter of record. There are video clips where he stood surrounded by thousands of people in political rallies, and promised, never to go to the I'm and today. He's doing exactly that because it's a very difficult economic situation in which he has no other options in the first eight months, nine months of his government. He tried to avoid going to the IMF tried to get loans from friendly countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE and China, but that has not been sufficient to restore what looks like very weak economic confidence. But halves the weakest in Pakistan's entire history. Ben. Ben just cook on the thought per up ninja member countries. Jauregui economic difficulty Maho on KOMO cut or up Cooper type John seldom see Pakistan economic situation. You high here. Did he facto finance minister, who's an advisor to the prime minister of the shake said, on record that Pakistan's economic situation of today has been fueled by policy failures under the previous government of former prime minister nervous Sharieff, so he talks about how Pakistan's exports crashed how Pakistan's previous government recklessly took foreign loans, and how they spent far beyond the topology of the Pakistanis feet to service. These loans to pay back these loans and future. Kluber bought a billion dollar Saul Kiara eighty to get so inches. Oh, good dictator, who? How might passed SE capacity eighty gam- buzzer? The hood cheesemakers take basically that was unavoidable. I'm John up. He has a point but I'm afraid such points. Don't really make a difference when it comes to public sentiment, and that is where the opposition is now going to try to fight it battle, what has the reaction been like in Pakistan has there been any reaction? Yet, the opposition has now confirmed that they're looking to St. agitation in the next few weeks, or a couple of months, the central point, the core point in the agitation campaign would be inflation across the country, as a consequence of Imran, Khan's agreement for the IMF, the only one point on which the government may have an advantage is that in the middle of Pakistan's scorching sun. But how many people would be discouraged from coming out on the streets? But we have to see we have to see how trends unfold in the coming months. Stephanie, how closely is the international community watching the situation in Pakistan? What are their main concerns if any the international community wants to see Pakistan, get serious about its economic reforms? It's not good for the region, if they are unstable and they really are putting on pressure for them to tackle terrorists operating on their soil in February. There was a terrorist attack in India, which put renewed pressure on Pakistan to tackle extremist groups, within its borders, which are threat, not only to region, but to Pakistan itself, Pakistan has a country of one hundred million people in a fast growing region, but Pakistan, has for so long squandered its potential. So the hope is now that this package could finally get. It back on the right track. This is now we can say the thirteenth package since the eighties. The IMF says it's the twenty first package since Pakistan joined the IMF, we've seen this before and Pakistan hasn't had a good history of concluding these programs or sticking to the reforms that it needs to people are hoping that this case will be different. People are cautiously optimistic watching and waiting to see if the government has the strength to carry out the reforms.

"Coast to coast. Hillary GAM with us, of course, as we talk about who were billions lost the American tech crisis of the roadmap to change. We'll take your calls this hour as well. What's your take on social media before I jump in and give you my views? So I'd like to hear yours. I'm not on social media, giant policing themselves for censoring themselves. They feel like they're really curtail free speech and it seems like sometimes they're not letting media kind of media seems to be controlled by people with special interests. And so, I think in order to provide the truth, and that news and you people's opinions and restrict getting the facts, I think it's really hard for social media to police itself. But do you think well on one hand of a lot of fake news leaks out on social media, that people believe, you know, then they share it with each other in it just starts to spread like wildfire. That's that's somewhat dangerous. And then on the other hand, they take people like Alex Jones, who's very vocal about a lot of things. But he doesn't deserve to be knocked off, you know, Facebook and Twitter and Instagram at all these things, I think that's wrong. You know, Alex is not advocating people died in get killed and go murder people. He's not saying that he's not threatening people like that. There are some hate speeches out there that advocate that I think they should be yanked, but, but by and large, I think they're going after people because maybe they're too socially sensitive. What do you think? I think you know, it's really challenging is that. When when any media was in infancy, right there is no regulation. No. In the radio started. There's no regulation. When TV started. There was never Galatian. And then, you know, the FTC kind of kicked in and I think that the internet is basically in its infancy now. And I think when we look back at it fifty one hundred years from now, and they're probably going to be quite a bit of regulation. We're gonna say, oh, wow. You know, it was the wild west, the here's an example. Let's let's say you take your child to a baseball game. Okay. And, and what city do you live in, by the way in the northeast? But I'm a big Red Sox. I'm sure your Boston Red Sox. Well, I used to watch the Boston Red Sox as a kid because we'd go with my mother was born in Fitchburg. We'd go there. But anyways, let's say you're sitting there with your child watching a Boston Red Sox game in the guy behind you got a t shirt with some horrible, vulgarity, on it, these, he has a right to do that. Question. I think it's important taste. I think I'd be getting my putting my hand over. My son's is now to look at the natural look at the shirt in, I think the Red Sox as a private enterprise has the right to say, sir. We want you to either take the shirt off in put it in put this thing on that. We're giving you this, this Red Sox or or leave the premises I think private organizations like that. Have the right to do that. Agree with, you know, with social media, what they're doing is they're going after people who are just spouting things off. You know, if people were spouting profanity, and that's against the rules, that's that's one issue. But, you know, it's, it's, it's a fine line in, it's a difficult line to monitor, isn't it? Harmful contents. Also on the internet. I mean, the things that children are exposed to by accident, and also purposely that they're seeing images in the content on the internet at such young ages is something that no generation of Americans is ever had to deal with before and it's awful at setting and it's causing harm. I mean I don't want to talk about the stories that I've heard, but just really awful things, you know, the kids see and they talk about them in school. And, you know, like you said, they sometimes things spread like wildfire wildfire that are just really terrible. Terrible images. And it's very scary. And so, you know, like anything else, you know, social media can be used for good or can be used for evil and we have to remember that, and some young children have committed suicide because they can't take the pressure that their peers poor poor on them. Well, you know, social media, you're absolutely right in that regard. So social media now, the, the percentage of suicides has dramatically increased because on social media people don't realize that, you know, children will take two thousand photos of themselves to get that perfect shot. And then the peer pressure of their friends to live up to that expectation of always being happy and always been popular and always going to, in movie or being with the in crowd causes children to question their validity and the importance of their life, and, you know, every individual special every person has something to give and children. Sometimes they're alienated from their parents, their friends, and they get caught up in this, you know, virtual reality that isn't reality at all, and they can really go to a place. That's not good. And so, again, you know, we need the family unit we need strong American family values to keep our kids focused on what's right. And what's good? Good and to know anybody listening tonight know that your life is very important. And that you weren't we need you our country needs you and we need you to alive and well, and you just need to be the best you can be, you know, I, I have had the best parents in the world, right? And I was raised to understand that we're not competing against each other. We're just supposed to meet our own individual potential. That's what drives me to try to everything I can to help American citizens today and to be a good role model for others. To try to good, mom, a good citizen, a good neighbor. Good person, good friend. It could daughter, good wife. We all need to meet our own individual potential, and I think was social media people just get to cut up with that whole keeping up with the Joneses mentality. Anybody you ever see a couple of go out to dinner and they both have their smartphones with them? They put it on the dinner table. And that's all they do is, I'm wondering if they're texting each other or or their friends, but, you know, they don't even talk at dinner. Well, you know, it's really funny. I, I don't know if you've seen this, when you see the teenagers, they'll all game at the same time, they don't talk to you all be on their phones gaming. You're like what is going on? So mazing what's or at the airport? You sit and watch people waiting for the plane. Everyone's got their smartphone out in the you know, I don't know what they're doing. It's I I had a friend who passed on about four months ago. Sadly, but he would put his phone down on a bar table or dinner table, wherever he was, and look at it every minute, he'd pick it up and look at it, and I finally said, what are you doing? He said, I'm checking to see if anybody sent me a text, and I said your phone will be vibrate flash. If somebody sends you a text, you're addicted to this thing, and he was he just had to pick it up. And look at it even though nothing was happening. And the kids are you know, it's so funny about. Today's teenagers such a crack up, you know. And my generation, you know, we would look in the mirror. Check out check ourselves out before we are leaving and now it's really funny. You know, all the kids, they'll just take two hundred and fifty million south. They are constantly looking at themselves and their phone and they'll make funny faces. And it's really it's so interesting to see how technology has affected the generation of Americans. It's crazy. And you know, it's so funny, is that, you know, they just everything's about googling it, you know Google Google, Google that and it's kind of cute. It's kind of fun and away. Right. Because we look up facts and seconds, that amazing as talk show host. You know, I think back in the early days, when I started in this end of the business, you'd have newspaper clippings and magazine clippings. And, you know, Associated Press wire clippings now, everything's concise you can sit at your computer and in a couple hours. You can download all the material you're working on and everything. It's amazing right break benefits to it. Yes. Absolutely does. Absolutely. And that's the good part about it. Right. I mean can you imagine sending letters to everybody you Email every day? You, you never get anything done. I know. And that's, that's one of the greatest things, isn't it? The speed at which we can communicate with others in, and I mean, can you imagine I could send you a text message or a picture in its, there instantly a, you know, a picture, just floats onto your phone from someone who sends it, and it's there through the airwaves it's just amazing technology global, and those are all the great things. You know, those are all the things that are so awesome about the innovation that we've had in tact. And let's go to the phones for you. First time caller, David in Chicago, Illinois. Hey David, go ahead. Well, I wanna thank you so much George for this topic. And I'd like to ask Hillary. Thank you so much Hillary for your advocacy, and what you're doing is stand up for us American citizens. And I've been studying this issue for about fourteen years myself. So I'm I'm just so happy. It. We're trying to get something done here. I, I wanted to ask you, if you went to the White House, and you can give President Trump and his administration for major three major bullet points and maybe for some legislation that could fix this issue. You're these issues that you're dressing. What would you tell the president? I would ask him to invoke data mistake laws to keep our data here in the US, I would ask him to enforce by American high American executive order. He put in in twenty seven April twenty seventeen and I would ask him to end OTT h four AD. Voter. Interesting. What do you think of those David, I'm sorry? What do you think of those three topics that you I great? And I would also add put the country quotas back into the Razak, the time cotton has introduced the raise act is great because it reduces overall immigration, but we have to have the century quotas in and it does. No, good to shift, the merit immigration. If you simply allowing even more people in under the guise of merit we have to reduce overall numbers right now. Seventy one percent of the tech workforce in silicon valley's Warren born, this was displacement. This is a grievous colonization and as a tech workers been into business over twenty five years. It's it's been a disaster for American tech workers. Mo we don't control their own hiring, George. I mean over most of the calls, I get for jobs from offshore, mostly in India. We don't control are hiring supply chain. And that's a big part of the problem. It surest. Thanks, david. Appreciate your call and. Lot of well, educated people. Let's go next.

"Welcome back to Costa coach Hillary GAM with us, of course, as we talk about who were billions lost the American tech crisis, the roadmap to change take your calls this hour as well. Hillary wants your take on social media before I jump in and give you my views add like to hear yours. I'm not on social media giants. Policing themselves for censoring themselves. I feel like they're really kicked her tail fifty and it seems like sometimes they're not letting media kind of needed to be controlled by people with special interests. And so, I think in order to provide the truth, and that fake news and keep people's opinions and restrict and getting the facts, I think it's really hard for social media to police itself. Do you think well on one hand of a lot of fake news leaks out on social media, that people believe, you know, then they share it with each other in just starts to spread like wildfire. That's somewhat dangerous. And then on the other hand, they take people like Alex Jones, who's very vocal of a lot of things. But he doesn't deserve to be knocked off, you know, Facebook and Twitter and Instagram at all these things, I think that's wrong. You know, Alex is not advocating people died in get killed and go murder people. He's not saying that he's not threatening people like that. There are some hate speech is out there that advocate that I think they should be yanked, but the but by and large, I think the going after people because maybe they're too socially sensitive. What do you think? And I think you know, it's really challenging, you know, is that? When, when any media was in cincy, right, there was no regulation, you know, in the radio started, there's no regulation when TV started was never relation. And then, you know, the FCC kind of kicked in and I think that the internet is basically in the infancy now. And I think we look back at it fifty one hundred years from now, and they're probably going to be quite a bit or regulation. We're gonna say, oh, wow. You know, it was the wild west, the here's an example. Let's say you take your child to a baseball game. Okay. And what city do you live in by the way, and in the northeast but I'm a big red. Red sox. I used to watch the Boston Red Sox as a kid, 'cause we'd go up. My mother was born in Fitchburg. But anyways, let's say you're sitting there with your child watching a Boston Red Sox game in the guy behind you got a t shirt with some horrible, Garrity on it. Do you think he has a right to do that? That's a kick Christian. I think it's important taste. I think I'd be getting my putting my hand over. My son's is now to look at the natural at the shirt, and I think the Red Sox as a private enterprise has the right to say, sir. We want you to either take the shirt off put in this thing on that. We're giving you this. This Red Sox or leave the premises. I think private organizations like that. Have the right to do that. With social media. What they're doing is they're going after people who are just spouting things off. You know, if people were spouting profanity, and that's against the rules that's one issue. But, you know, it's, it's a fine line, and it's a difficult line to monitor, isn't it? And there's so much harmful content. Also on the internet. I mean, the things that children are exposed to by accident, and also purposely, that they're seeing images in the content on the internet, such young age is something that no generation of Americans has ever had to deal with before and it's awful at setting and it's causing harm. I mean, you know, I don't want to talk about the stories that I heard, but just really awful things, you know, the kids see and they talk about them in school. And, you know, like you said, they sometimes things like wire five wildfire that are really terrible. Terrible images and it's very scary. And so, you know, like anything else that, you know, social media can be used for good or for evil. And we have to remember that and some young children have committed suicide because they can't take the pressure that their peers poor poor on them. Well, you know, social media, you're absolutely right in that regard. So social media that the, the percentage of suicides has dramatically increased. Because on social media people don't realize that, you know, children will take two thousand photos themselves to get that perfect shot. And then the peer pressure of their friends to live up to that expectation of always being happy and always being popular and always going to, in movie or being with the in crowd causes children to question their validity and important of their life, and every individual special, every person has something to give and children, sometimes alienated from their parents, their friends, and they get caught up in this, you know, virtual reality that isn't reality at all. And they can really go to a place. It's not good. And so, again, we need the family unit. We need strong American family values to keep our kids focused on what's right. And what's good? Good and to know anybody listening tonight that your life is very important. And that you weren't we need you are country needs you and we need you to alive and well, and you just need to be the best you can be, you know, I, I have had the best parents in the world, right? And I was raised to understand that we're not competing against each other. We're just supposed to meet our own individual potential. That's what drives me to try to do everything I can to help American citizens today and to be a good role model for others. Try to good mom. Good citizen. A good neighbor person, friend daughter that wife Lee, only to meet our own individual potential, and I was social media, people just get to cut up. But that whole keeping up with the Joneses mentality. Anybody couple go out to dinner and they both have their smartphones with them. They put it on the table. And that's all they do. I'm wondering if they're texting each other or or their friends. You know they don't talk at dinner. You know, really funny. I don't know if you've seen this, when you see the teenagers, they'll all game at the same time, they don't talk to all be on their phones gaming. You're like what is going on? What's or at the airport? You sit and watch people waiting for the plane. Everyone's got their smartphone out in the you know, I don't know what they're doing. It's I had a friend who passed on four months ago. Sadly, but he would put his phone down on a bar table or dinner table, wherever he was, and look at it every minute, he'd pick it up and look at it, and I finally said, what are you doing? He said, I'm checking to see if anybody sent me a text, and I said your phone will be vibrate flash. If somebody sends you a text your addicted to this thing, and he was, he just had to pick it up and look at it, even though nothing was happening. And the kids are, you know, it's so funny about today's teenagers such a crack up, you know. And my generation, we would look in the mirror. Check out check ourselves out before we are leaving. And now it's really funny. You know, all the kids, they'll just take two hundred and fifty million Southie. They are constantly looking at themselves and their phone and they'll make funny faces. And it's really it's so interesting to see how technology is affected the center of Americans crazy. And you know, it's so funny, is that, you know, they just everything's about googling it, you know, Google Google the Google that and it's kind of cute. It's kind of fun and away. Right. Because we look up facts and seconds. As talk show host. I think back in the early days, when I started in this end of the business, you'd have newspaper clippings, and magazine clippings, and Associated Press wire clippings now, everything's concise, you considered your computer and in a couple hours. You can download all the material you're working on and everything. It's amazing right? Got some benefits to it. Absolutely does. Absolutely. And that's the good part about it. Right. Can you imagine sending letters to everybody you Email every day? You never get anything done. I know. And that's a that's one of the greatest things isn't it the speed at which we can communicate with others? And I mean, can you imagine I could send you a text message or a picture in its there? Instantly key a picture, just floats onto your phone from someone who sends it and it's there through the airwaves it's just amazing technology global another all the great things, you know, those are all the things that are so awesome about the innovation that we've had in tact. And let's go to the phones for you. First time caller, David in Chicago, Illinois. Hey David, go ahead. I wanna thank you so much George for this topic. And I'd like to ask Hillary. Thank you so much for your advocacy, and what you're doing stand up for us American citizens. And I've been studying this issue for about fourteen years myself. So I'm I'm just so happy, we're trying to get something done here. I, I wanted to ask you, if you went to the White House, and you can give President Trump and his administration for major three major bullet points and maybe offer some legislation that could fix this issue that you're these issues that you're dressing. What would you tell the president? I would ask him to invoke data mistake us to keep our data here in the US, I would ask him to enforce by American higher Mackin executive order, he put in and twenty seven day twenty seventeen and I would ask him to end PT and h four year d executive order. Interesting. What do you think of those David, I'm sorry, what do you think of those topics that you great, and I would also add put the country code is back into the Razak that time cotton has introduced the raise act great because it reduces overall immigration, but we have to have the Centric quotas in and it does. No, good to shift, the merit immigration. If you simply allowing even more people in under the guise of merit we have to reduce overall numbers right now. Seventy one percent of the tech workforce, Silicon Valley is Warren born, this is displacement. This is egregious colonization. And as a tech workers been in the business over twenty five years, it's it's been a disaster for American tech workers. Mo we don't control their own hiring, George. I mean most of the calls I get for jobs offshore, mostly in India. We don't control are hiring supply chain. And that's a big part of the problem surest. Thanks, david. Appreciate your call. The educated people. Let's go next, Roberto and Fullerton, California. Hi, roberto. Go ahead. I am. Mexico and I work in the company..

"Welcome back to coast to coast, Hillary GAM with us or book is called billions lost to tell us about the trip to Washington DC. What was the progress like? Jeff that. So I was so grateful and honored to be asked to speak to Francis. No of USCIS. I was there with some awesome people, so Kevin US tech workers, who's fighting for doctors about jobs and tech workers have been displaced j Palmer, who's been somebody who's talked about issues with foreign workers, and how there's sometimes these Bob heath who gave a lot of sophisticated on H Wendy workers, Sarah Blackwell was there. And she is the Disney attorney who represented the Disney folks that relate off. She spoke and run here. There's a professor is in working the field for over twenty years, doing research. He also gave a presentation about prevailing wages and Francis. Nah. And the department of labor and department of this year. We're listening to us and listening to the stories of American workers who've been displaced by their companies, and this stomach kind of removal and kind of lifting shifts where American workers or an entire departments are lifted out of the US and. You know, working in another country and replaced by foreign workers in another land. I was inspired to get together with a couple other moms marine. Barb my steamed colleague on the phone every day. And we are making congressional calls every single day reaching out to legislators in Washington, DC, congressmen and senators asking them for what? Well, we're not we're asking them for a couple of things, and we're also providing them details since the stories of American workers, losing their jobs and losing their health insurance, and being displaced not being told in the media, we we're trying to provide them with the facts. I asked every one of your listeners tonight to get in touch with me, stay by to speak directly to their congressman or Senator, we are coordinating, those calls or putting constituents in touch with their legislators. So they can tell their stories. They get a hold of Hillary billions, Las book dot com is the. The website, the Email is there Hillary gamut dot com. Get coast to coast for everybody makes you we make it very easy for them. Yes. Super easy just set. I mean Email and we love to be in touch, I respond to every Email that I get I and I will actively work with them to get them in touch with their legislators. So I wanna make sure I answer your question. Couple of things. One thing we want Washington to, to do. One thing we hope the current administration will consider you know, I'm not a billionaire, so I don't have the same access and opportunity to speak to the current administration and senior advisors in Washington DC as billionaires, too. So the billionaires are able to communicate what they think is important, and what they think policy should be the United States, and they don't necessarily always represent or typically actually never represent what's best for the little guy for the middle class American workers. And so I hope that the current administration will listen to some of us and give us an audience and spent some time speaking. To the workers of the United States who are really being harmed by some of the policies that are in place, today for one of the things that I'm strongly advocating against is something called OT I wrote a blog on it. OT is not a visa. So we, we've had and included this in my book, we have over a million foreign students in the US. We've had a hundred percent increase the number of foreign students attending American University. They're pushing out American children from the stem majors and OT gives any foreign student here in the US an opportunity to work, so stem graduates are able to work for up to three years, every degree that they get. So we have people who stay in the United States for fifteen twenty years and never become citizens or visa if they're going to school here, they get an opportunity to work Oaten. He workers stand for it stands for optional. Practical training, and it's the biggest killer for American children, coming out of college to get job. Is it legit? It's, it's a may not be good. But I mean, is it legit? Or is it a scam now? It's not a scam. It's, it's the federal government real thing. Okay. So what happened was Opie. There was something called CPT, which was six months when a foreign student came to the US, and let's say they were, they were going to be a nurse, and they would be able to go to a hospital and work while they were in school to learn how to give an injection or take someone's pulse. And that turned into OT, which was any foreign student that came to the US could stay in the United States for here for twelve months and, and learn on the job. Right. So that's how we do this knowledge transfer where we're teaching other countries how America and capitalism works, and so they would take jobs in any industry in the United States, financial services or health care, or technology wherever, and they would actually take these jobs and then, with the bomb administration, there wasn't an. Extension a change, so that anybody who was in the stem major could work up to three years in the US. And so, basically anybody who comes to the US as a foreign student on F one visa can then turn that f one visa into a vehicle for staying in the US and being permanently employed as long as they constantly are being educated. And how many of them do that in terms of percent, lots of ton. There's more OTT workers in the US H one beats, there's more. It's outstripped H one B because there's a loophole isn't it, it is. Because no one knows about it. No one's talking about it. And nobody in Washington even understand what it is. And so let me explain how it chokes out the American children. Okay. So not only the oak PT's, first of all, there's there's jobs. They get advertise Pacific for PT which is a legal, you're not supposed to in the United States of America. Try to hire foreign. Before you hire American. So in addition to that, when a company higher than PT they get a fifteen percent fight a tax break. So the PT cost less money for the employer and that foreign graduate is he willing to work for less hours and typically many reports of said that it's like an indentured slave to being a slave indentured slave slavery because they go work for this company for really low wages. They work a lot of hours. And what happens is the American children, never get a chance to interview. So you have these kids spending all this money on stem education. Do you know today in the US seventy five percent of American children, who graduate with a stem degree do not get stem job five percent? Right. You hear these cries and the myth of Silicon Valley is that we don't have enough stem workers. We have tons of stem workers. This is not getting jobs because they're going to, to people that are not US citizens, and so. Oh, PTA. There's no limits. There is no restrictions where they have to work. They can work for basically three years with every stem to read, I get so they keep working and they get a fifteen percent tax break for, for their employer. So they're the first their employers want to hire OTT candidates before they wanna hire American or compromise your Hillary that you see that could work out. Well, I, I would like President Trump to end PT with an executive order, just but I think a good compromise would be to say, maybe six months or maximum year, but I would like him to end it because it doesn't do any any good for our country. You know, we we're. Never gonna see our birth rate, go up never to see kids getting married and having families living American dream if they're not unable to find employment. These foreign kids go to school here colleges who's paying for that. Oh, well, you know, in my book, I don't know if you remember but I talked about last time on the show. So sometimes we America's best universities, give many scholarships to foreign students over American kids. They do millions and millions of dollars. I think over three hundred million dollars a year last year, just the allocate duchess for foreign kids. I guess that's right, though, not only the foreigners getting the spots. They're also getting money from money that could go to American kids, course addition to that one of the affiliates, I have a newly listed on my website, something called California stem parents. Those are group of parents who've done a lot of research, and they're advocating, and basically, you know, uncovering, the story that in California that children that are here in California. I'm not in California, but here in the United States in California that where the families are paying taxes. They can't even get into any of the US the UC schools. And that the American children are completely being pushed out of the pipeline to get in some of the top universities in the country, with the highest number of foreign students are like UC Berkeley, and UC Davis UC school than the California. And, you know, they also have on their website information about how either even in K through twelve in California, there's something called parachute kids, where foreign parents will bring their children to the US, and let them live in the US to improve their language skills. So they have a better chance of getting into US colleges, and they live with relatives or others and attend American k through twelve education so American taxpayers are paying educate, foreign children. Our taxes are going up to educate foreigners. And then our kids don't even get a chance to go to our own state universities. I mean it's really horrific and then when our kids graduate. Even if we go into debt and we take two mortgages, our and our house. Our kids don't even get the job. I mean it's really sad and something we really need to educate congress about. And that's why we get on the phone with Washington DC legislators to talk to them. One of the other thing for talking about now is HR ten forty four. That's a, that's a Bill where they're trying to take away the seven percent country. Cats. For immigration, and what that would mean to countries with a is all the immigration to the United States for a decade, and that's really awful. I mean America was founded, it's a melting pot where we have people that are immigrating tonight states from all the countries across the globe. Diversity is something that we pride ourselves on as a country. And to think that we would possibly entertain legislation in Washington, that would allow immigration only from one or two countries for the next decade into the US is not something that's good for our country. So advocating against HR ten forty four. And we're also talking to legislators about legislation that was introduced in twenty seventeen called the grassy Bill. That was a Bill that senators Durbin and Grassley bipartisan introduced to kind of curtail. Fail. The H one B and l one visa programs that are so hurting, our middle-class stem workers. We have very serious fraud going on when it comes to H, one being L one, and we have issues with the wage so wages are paid to H one B, an l one visa holders in the US are far less than what Americans make for the same job. And so that's a big problem. I personally advocate for data mistake laws. I talked about talked about that on your show last time I was here last year. You know, it's very obvious to Americans when manufacturing jobs go offshore because big manufacturing facilities are then invested in and big capital purchase, and the jobs, go off shore and the United States loses. But for some reason, American citizens are an understanding that the most valuable thing we have today is data and the United States doesn't have any laws. Ause about keeping our data all of our data our government data our personal data or financial data or health data here in the US. It's all over the place probably on the dark web. Exactly. And so as our data is allowed to leave the US all the jobs associated with data leave the US too. And so we see this mass exodus, not a hundred thousand jobs of millions and millions of jobs that are have left the US and continue to leave the United States..

"To coast, George story with you for more than twenty five years. Hillary GAM has been the fort right at the front of America's high tech industry. She has amassed a wide sweeping for festival portfolio at virtually all levels of the tech industry. Hierarchy from field work to middle management to executive leadership, Hillary has managed IT departments projects application developments book is called billions lauch. She was with me about a year ago. Hillary give us an update as anything changed from year ago when you were last on with us. How are you? I'm good. Nice to hear your voice and such Husher be sharing time, you and your listeners tonight. Yeah. I think things have changed hopefully in a good in a good way. I think unfortunately, we still see the mass migration of middle class educated jobs, leaving the US. So that's not good. But I'm hoping that the current administration will spend some time and get connected. There's some of those folks including me that are champing American workers, and American citizens and American children. So, yeah, love to talk about the things they've been doing in Washington if that's of interest to you. Absolutely all should give me your take on the tariff war with China right now. Is that good or bad for us? Great question. I just thinking about this last night. So, you know, I think the media wants to play up how terrible this tariff situation is because they remember the history after the great depression. And so they're worried that that's going to happen. Some dire consequences happen tonight, states today, but it's just simply not the case, you know, the American economy, is extremely strong, China, very weak position. And the only way we can really level the playing field with China as a partner in terms of trade is that these terrorists on them, because their intellectual property that saying stolen and unfair practices of specifically in the area STAN in tech and our American technology companies are competing against these foreign Chinese government act companies, and it's very tough for them to compete. So even though we see our biggest big tech company. As very successful here in the US. We have to recognize that we look at them globally, any companies have actually made big inroads, and there they taking market share, so that's serious consideration. But I believe that the tariffs are good thing for the United States. I don't think they can consumer is gonna feel it so much. I think they consumer goods can be purchased from all different countries across the globe. And I think it's actually really good thing that the president is doing in terms of the tariffs of China, I think, will turn out really well for Americans and American citizens noodles backfire on us. I don't not at all, and so grateful to the president. That's the one thing I can say that. I kinda ministration has done. Well, and I hope that they stand stand tall. And I hope they're they continue to be in a strong negotiating position. I think it's the very best thing for us as a country is the best thing for us as a country. Why haven't previous administrations done done this before? Why, why did it take? Now gosh, that's. Good question. I George what do you think? I think there's so many things that play. Right. I mean you know, I, I know the great Roman empire fell because corruption was so big. No. I think corruptions real thing who gets paid off and what goes on what kinds of shady, dealings happen. But I'm not sure that policymakers always do what's in the best interest of American citizens, and our country and our democracy, implying Hillary that some people in government are getting paid off. Not necessarily. I really don't know. I'm just saying that sometimes decisions are made that I really question. I can't understand why they're made. No, I'm not implying anything. And if all of you listening tonight if you're if you're in the working force, we're going to talk with you about what's going on with you. And, you know, if you're going to be able to continue working, what has happened in your opinion. Hillary to the middle class is gone. Wow, it is. So quickly disappearing. My goodness is Russian at its best, isn't it? It's worst I should say, and I have to say, I'm so grateful to, you know, the premier radio stations and, and just so grateful to you and coast to coast for just giving us an airtime to talk about how American class is really being hit and suck to. And how are American children? Can't even get job interviews anymore. Stand there being pushed out and how American workers silence their seven agreements and basically, mainstream media will not cover the stories, so I'm just so grateful to you for giving us an airtime. I know there's lots of people listening tonight that are in this fight with me, trying to educate the masses and trying to let our policy and legislators now in Washington DC that this is a real silent epidemic. We have thousands and thousands of Americans continue to be laid off and replaced by a foreign workers, both here in the United States and abroad. It's a very serious problem. And when Amir. American middle class workers lose their jobs there. There aren't really a lot of jobs waiting for them. I know that the media would like to report that, you know, unemployment is so low. But our labor participation rate is never been higher. We have lots and lots of people who are not part of the labor force that should be, I think ninety million, he take out those, maybe who are over sixty five and our school, and maybe have a disability or forty five million. That's a lot of a lot of people who could be working, and we need to bring them back into the workforce, and those Americans who are being laid off. They lose their jobs. They have to take their kids out of college. There's not jobs waiting for them. And they're really putting a very difficult position. I get, you know, marital problems depressed at upset, they can lose their housing and it's very, very upsetting. And it happened every day across our nation. Tonight. I went to one of my granddaughters high school, Greg. Relation ceremonies and four hundred kids, graduated from high school, and you, you look at them and they've all got this look of hope on their face. You know, a lot of them will go to college. They're going to accumulate student loan debt. Some others would try to go right out into the workforce, but, you know, you don't wanna go down there and tell them folks are no jobs for you or it's tough. You don't want to burst their bubble. My gosh, it's this is a great moment for the neural excited, they're graduating from high school. But what's the future hold for, you know, young kids like that eighteen year olds someone go to college? Some won't. But what's the future like for them economically? Well, Georgia really nit hit the now on the head with that statement. Right. So today's children, and they go to college. They're messing they're spending three times, but their parents did onto ish accounting, firm flation. They're amassing incredible amounts of debt today in the news, they believe there were stories about America, the United States is a low birth rate that continues to be on the decline. Why is that? I can tell you very quickly and, you know yourself, so we're putting so much pressure on our American us or making virtually impossible for them to get married and buy a home, and then have kids, they're Laden with so much debt. Many people don't even want to get married and the opportunities for them. Really? Don't look great. So the, the world that I grew up in the United States, you know in the nineteen seventies and eighties. The country had the lowest immigration. Right. We were not even five percent immigration back. Then today. We're closer to I think one in seven Americans American residents were not born in the US. And I believe the number of immigrants. I think it's very big number. I can try to pull that number out of my head if I could it's a China member forty five million or thirty million. I think a lot of immigrants, though today are taking jobs. Cbs from Americans who don't want to do those kinds of jobs. When I'm out in California. I see a lot of Mexican Americans now you know, working in gardens and cutting grass and stuff. I don't I don't see a lot of veto American-born kids doing that or wanting to do that. Yeah. You know that's a question. I brought up one of the things if my book, you know, when we see foreign labor taking jobs in the middle class, and white collar professions, like technology or engineering, or serving. We don't think it had the trickle down effect. But it actually does I was gonna call today with Mike Emmons, who is a spokesperson for employing Americans United States, and he tells the story of one of his friends who worked with him at a company and was laid off out of his job and start a landscaping landscaping company. And so you take people who have education has spent a lot of money who played by the rules and they're still touring down, and being forced into visions. And, you know, that don't necessarily are not necessarily highly skilled, and so we're forcing a lot of lower skilled labor out, when we're pushing more middle class workers out of their positions. We've seen wage stagnation across. The board most prominently in Silicon Valley. We have been on the constant decline wages have not gone up. And that's because we have so many foreign workers who are willing to work sixty seventy eighty hours a week, and they were willing to work at a lower wage, and the American children, as you said, you know, you can't have four kids if you gotta work two jobs, and one of them, you got to work, sixty hours a week. Gotta talk to people in a format and basically be working twenty four hours a day. It's just not possible. You can't sustain the American dream. You can't have a family. You can't have family dinner. You can't go to the ball game. Can't go to your kid's graduation. You gotta be working all the time because you gotta hustle to keep up with the people that are desperate to become American citizens, or working in a foreign land, and making pennies dollar. It's just impossible, you know, globalism and capitalism are toxic mix. You cannot sustain a capitalist economy while you. Have foreign labor, that's constantly undercutting the American worker it's just impossible. And that's what we're seeing today in US is unveiled a new machine that packages and boxes and could displace maybe thousand workers just one machine. I mean we still going that way down that direction that path. I'm strong component that innovation creates jobs, robotics, is something that's going to propel the United States to even greater heights in terms of GDP opportunity for citizens as long as educating and employing, Americans and training Americans and giving them opportunity. So in the same way, you know, people were scared when the horse and buggy was replaced, the automobile, you know, the trains came in. I mean with every iteration of innovation people freak out and think the jobs are going away, but history proves that would innovation. We actually become more productive. And we grow GDP and, and things get better. So I think robotics and unofficial intelligence can only help our society if applied correctly. And so I'm not so worried about that to a point though. Because what happens, for example, when they start really pushing driverless trucks, for example. To take deliveries to places God knows how they're going to unload them because truck drivers doing that too. You know, we love our truck drivers. But I mean there's a case where official intelligence and technology, Hillary will displace truck driver. You won't have one, you won't have them in a truck. Yeah. Oh, I know. So we're gonna get calls next hour from truck drivers. In addition, everybody else who wants to talk with you in, they'll tell you how scary for their jobs that possibility is I gotta tell you, if I'm driving my car. I don't wanna be next to a driverless truck to you. That's why I don't think I'm not so sure. I mean, I just hope we don't go in that direction that to be sure going to get killed lady got hit by a driverless Uber car. We're gonna come back and talk more in a moment.

"To coast to coast. George Noory with you for more than twenty five years, Hillary GAM, bene- thief, fort right at the front of America's high tech industry. She has amassed a wide sweeping professional portfolio at virtually all levels of the tech industry hierarchy from field work to middle management to executive leadership, Hillary has managed IT departments projects application developments or book is called billions lost. She was with me about a year ago. Hillary give us an update is anything changed year ago when you were last on with us. Okay. Are you? I'm good. Nice to hear your voice, and such a pleasure. Be sharing time you and your listeners tonight. Yeah. I think things have changed hopefully in a good in a good way. I think unfortunately, we still see the mass migration of middle class educated job leaving the US. So that's not good. But I'm hoping that the current administration will spend some time and, and get connected the some of those folks, including me that are champing American workers, and American citizens and American children. So, yeah. Buck to talk about the things you've been doing to Washington if that's of interest to you. Absolutely should give me your take on the of war with China right now. Is that good or bad for us? Great question. I. Done about this last night. So, you know, I think the media wants to play up how terrible this tariff situation is because they remember the history after the great depression. And so they're worried that that's going to happen. Some dire consequences to happen. United States today, but it's just simply not the case, you know, the American economy, is extremely strong, China, very weak position. And the only way we can really level the playing field with China is a partner in terms of trade is that these terrorists on them because their intellectual property that stay stolen unfair practices of specifically in the area. Stan and tech and our American technology companies are competing against these foreign Chinese government backed companies, and it's very tough for them to compete. So even though we see our biggest big tech companies very successful here in the US. We have to recognize that we look at the Chinese companies have actually made big inroads, and there, they taken some chair. So that's serious consideration. But I believe that the tariffs are good things ended states. I don't think American consumers gonna feel it so much. I think they consumer goods can be purchased. From all different countries across the globe. And I think it's actually really good saying that the president is doing to the task of China, I think, will turn out really well for Americans and American citizens, you don't think will backfire on us. I don't not at all, and so grateful to president. That's the one thing I can say that. I kinda ministration has done. Well, and I hope that they stand stand tall. And I hope they're they continue to be a strong ago shooting position. I think it's the very best thing for us as a country. It is the best thing for us as a country. Why heaven previous administrations done done this before? Why, why did it take? Now gosh, that's good. Question. What do you think? I think there's so many things that play. Right. I mean you know, I, I know the great Roman empire fell because corruption was so big. I think corruptions a real thing gets paid off, and what goes on and what kinds of shady dealings happen, but I'm not sure that policymakers always do what's in the best interest of American citizens, and our country and our democracy. Are you applying Hillary that some people in government are getting paid off? Not necessarily. I really don't know. I'm just saying that sometimes decisions are made that I really question. I can't understand why they're made. No, I'm not implying anything. And if all of you listening tonight if you're if you're in the working force, we're going to talk with you about what's going on with you. And, you know, if you're going to be able to continue working, what has happened in your opinion. Hillary to the middle class is gone. Wow, it is so quickly disappearing. My goodness Rosen at its best, isn't it? It's worse I should say, and I have to say, I'm so grateful to, you know, the premier radio stations and, and just grateful to you and coast to coast for just giving us an airtime to Tak about how American class is really being hit and suck to, and how are American children. Can't even get job interviews anymore. Stand there being pushed out and how American workers silence either seven agreements and basically, mainstream media will not cover the stories. So I'm just so grateful for giving us an airtime. I know there's lots of people listening tonight that are in the fight with me, trying to educate the masses and China. Let our policy and legislators. No in Washington DC that this is a real silent epidemic. We have thousands and thousands of Americans continue to be laid off and replaced by a foreign workers here in the United States and abroad. It's a very serious problem. And when. American middle class workers lose their jobs there. There aren't really a lot of jobs waiting for them. I, I know that the media would like to report that unemployment is so low, but our labor rate is, is never been higher. We have lots and lots of people who are not part of the labor force that should be, I think ninety million, he take out those, maybe who are over sixty five and our school, and maybe have a disability or forty five million. That's a lot of lot of people who could be working, and we need to bring them back into the workforce, and those Americans were being laid off. They lose their jobs. They have to take their kids out of college. There's not jobs waiting for them and they're really putting a very difficult position. I get, you know, marital problems, you have to press at upset you can lose their housing. I mean, very, very upsetting and it happened every day across our nation. Tonight. I went to one of my granddaughters high school graduation ceremony and four hundred kids, graduated from high school, and you, you look at them and they've all got this look of hope on their face. You know, a lot of them will go to college. They're going to accumulate student loan debt. Some others would try to go right out into the workforce, but, you know, you don't want to go down there and tell them folks are no jobs for you. Or it's tough. You don't want to burst their bubble. My gosh. This is a great moment for the neural excited, they're graduating from high school. But what's the future hold for, you know, young kids like that eighteen year olds someone go to college? Some won't. But what's the future like for them economically? You really hit the nail on the head with that statement. Right. So today's children, the negle- college, they are massing spending three times, but their parents did unto issue, accounting from flation. They're amassing incredible amounts of debt today. In the news, they believe there were stories about America, the United States is a low birth rate that continues to be on the decline. Why is that? I can tell you very quickly and, you know yourself, so we're putting so much pressure on our American use for making virtually impossible for them to get married, and by home, and then have kids, they're Laden with so much debt. Many people don't even want to get married and the opportunities for them. Really? Don't look great. So the, the world that I grew up in the United States, you know in the nineteen seventies and eighties. The country had the lowest immigration, right? We are not even five percent immigration back. Then today. We're closer to I think one in seven Americans American residents. We're not born in the US, and I believe the number of immigrants. I think it's very big number. I can try to pull that number out of my head if I could it's a China member forty five million thirty million a lot of immigrants, though today are taking jobs. From Americans who don't want to do those kinds of jobs. When I'm out in California. I see a lot of Mexican Americans now you know, working in gardens and cutting grass and stuff. I don't I don't see a lot of veto American-born kids doing that or wanting to do that. Yeah. You know that's a question. I brought up one of the things about if my book, you know, when we see foreign labor taking jobs from the middle class, and white collar professions, like technology or engineering, or surveying. We don't think it had the trickle down effect. But it actually does I was gonna call today with make 'em to is a spokesperson for, you know, employing Americans United States, and he tells the story of one of his friends who worked with him at a company, and was laid off out of his check job. Start a landscaping landscaping company. And so you take people who have education has spent a lot of money who played by the rules, and then they're still touring down, and being forced into physicians. You know, that don't necessarily are not necessarily highly skilled, and so we're forcing a lot of lower skilled labor out, when we're pushing more middle class workers out of their positions. They seen wage stagnation across. The board most prominently. And so kind valley wages have been on the constant decline. We have not gone up, and that's because we have so many foreign workers who are willing to work sixty seventy eighty hours a week, and they were willing to work at a lower wage, and the American children, as you said, you know, you can't have four kids if you got to work, two jobs, and one of them, you got to work, sixty hours a week because you gotta talk to people in a form and basically be working twenty four hours a day. It's just not possible. You can't sustain the American dream. You can't have a family. You can't have family dinner. You can't go to the ball game. Can't go to your kid's graduation. You gotta be working all the time because you gotta hustle to keep up with the people that are desperate to become American citizens, or working in a foreign land, and making pennies to your dollar. It's just impossible. You know, globalism and capitalism are toxic. Nex cannot sustain a capital of economy while you. Have foreign labor, that's constantly undercutting the American worker it's just impossible. And that's what we're seeing today in US unveiled a new machine that packages and boxes and could displace maybe thousand workers just one machine. I mean we still going that way down that direction that path. I'm strong component that innovation creates jobs, robotics, is something that's going to propel the United States to even greater heights in terms of GDP opportunity for citizens as long as educating employing, Americans and training Americans and giving them up for -tunities. So in the same way, you know, people were scared when the, you know, horse and buggy was replaced, the automobile, you know, the trains came in.

SoftBank's Vision Fund invests $800m in Britain's Greensill

"Let's move on to final topic and a look at Greenville a British private finance shadow Bank. The kind of institution that maybe isn't in the mainstream of financial services Cetinje, not a high sold name. But a stake of it. We think up to maybe twenty percent of it has been a quiet by the enormous Japanese investment firm. Softbank rub. What do you think has drool them to this business on what exactly is going on here? Yeah. It's a good question. I should say the green select she drew a very big investment from general Atlantic last year, which is a big US investor known investing in European fintech. Adian end payments companies probably the most famous bat, so it would draw in love interest. But that crystallized evaluation of one point six billion. So SoftBank have poured eight hundred million dollars into Greenville to take a minority stake. But it's incredible to see the inflationary impact soft bank's valuation. It's gone up from. About one point six billion to three and a half billion. And put simply I think on the key. Appeals to SoftBank is what Greenville does SoftBank love financial structuring, financial engineering, and they love clever use of off balance sheet debt. That's basically green main business. They find clever ways for companies to raise financing out of that supply chain working capitals, which crucially don't usually count towards that debt. You can sort of see why that the soft bank's alley. Yeah. Absolutely. All their comparible investments that it's made. Well, I mean, it's starting to make financial investments, right? We've seen oak north in the UK to an extent we've seen it. We've wire called in Germany, although there's an interesting structure around that. It's something thawing to do is they're coherent strategy that we can detect amongst the few investments they made is probably a bit too early to say there's not necessarily any grand plan again of mood, these businesses and create some great. Funding. But it's patina stakes butting these types of complex financial structures. Yep. Indeed and green. So it's been involved in some complicated situations, I should say green toes founded by a guy called Greenville, lex Greenville. He's this. Australian guys charming is the son of a farming family. And he's this great story about how his dad's business and any went under because of late supply of payments and how he's doing all this stuff to try and fix that issue. But he was involved in a pretty Harry situation to do the magic GAM GAM had to liquidate a fund due to them being able to sell a bunch of bonds that Greensville attracted and say that that situation still not resolved so oversea that was no block on SoftBank investing. But he's been involved in some interesting situations does illustrate them there at the end of the financial will oppose. Thank you wrote for the explanation.

Former GAM fund manager Tim Haywood blocked from AGM

And number of times form a bond manager at the heart of a scandal at the firm was denied entry to the meeting. So he was unbelievable. Is it truly unbelievable story? He was denied access to the meeting. And now, it seems that the the board has lost a confidence vote at the AGM. Remember that this goes back, many months, the Swiss money manager GAM has been trying to revive itself. After of course, the foam was struggling with this scandal that involved the former bond trader, Tim Heywood. So we'll keep an eye on what's going on there. Yeah. I think it's such a fascinating story because number one it's incredibly rare for executives to lose this kind of confidence vote at a shareholder meeting. It's typically in the bag, and it's a scandalous if they only get eighty or seventy percent, but losing competence voter shareholder meeting means that they've done a really poor job typically and the scandal of Tim Heywood. I mean, how scandal is really was it. They threw out this manager for seemingly very small infractions. And as a result have lost tens of billions of dollars. So it's a it's a fascinating story. And it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.
