"All right, like I mentioned, Jack Galloway took some calls from a couple of hour listeners. Check it out. All right, we've got David from LA, David, this is Jack Galloway. How can I help you today? Well, thanks, Jack. I run a small business to do screen printing and embroidery. And I'm looking for some advice on advanced techniques for improving retention and company loyalty. We've gotten a lot of the basics in place. We've had a mission statement for years. We've got core values. We do one on ones every week with our team to make sure we've got good communication. So we have a lot of those sort of living fruit items taken care of. And we've got a good culture, but I want to figure out how to develop a deeper sense of loyalty and retention. Right now, two or three years, tenure with us is considered pretty darn good. And I want to figure out how do we build a company where people stick around for 5 years, ten years. Given that most of our workforce right now is mostly in their 20s. Okay. All right. Well, that is a tough age group and while two to three years in the age group of 20s might be something a lot of our audience out there is struggling with, let's see if we can do a little bit better. What is the retention like in your industry? Are there people that stay in the embroidery and screen printing business for ten to 15 years that are not owners in the business? Traditionally, yes, especially in the production side, there are folks who have done the same job for ten, 15, even 20 years. Okay, all right. Well, let's review a little bit. Some of the things that we do know about what it is that makes people want to stay with a company. People stay because they're working in their sweet spot, first of all, that means that their skills and talents and passions line up with what they're going to be doing every day. Not 100%, but that are good 20% of what they're doing each day are activities that they just love to do. Marcus Buckingham calls them red thread activities. They also stay when they're connected to the company. So if they're connected to what the company does, how it serves its customers, if they're connected to the leaders of the company. And then they also stay when they have good relationships. If they're Friends with the people that they are working with and their friends with the leaders, then it also makes them want to stay with that company. And we've learned that if those things are off, it's hard to compensate for them in doing more advanced things. Those are sort of some of the fundamental things. We've also talked about compensation. We've got to be paying above average or competitive marketplace rates when it comes to compensation. And I'm guessing in your industry, if they've got the skills to do screen printing and embroidery in your business, they probably can find another job doing that somewhere in your town. Is that correct? That's probably true. We're a cottage industry, so there's not a lot of standardization in terms of how folks pay. But some rough research tells me that we're above average, maybe not a lot above average, but I think we are above average in terms of compensation. That connectedness point is I think interesting to me. How do we create a greater sense of connectedness with the company? Tell me a little bit more about what you're wanting to do when it comes to connectedness. Connectedness, to each other. Well, I think our team feels really well bonded because there's great communication. They're mostly Friends. They do a lot of outside work socializing. I think they've got a good sense of interpersonal connection. But you mentioned a minute ago, the idea of connectedness to what we're doing into the company, and I'm just trying to figure out how to deepen that sense of maybe said another way. I think that some of our employees feel because this is maybe their first or second job, they feel like this work environment is actually the norm, and they could find it anywhere else in terms of the community we've built. And helping them understand that they're in actually a unique place that this is a special company. This is a unique place to work and to not take that for granted. One of the things that's coming to my mind is when we talk about this age group and this industry is career growth. We know that this age group, they're not quite sure what they want to do for the rest of their life. We know that because you said that's their first or second job, their age tells us they haven't had a lot of different experiences up until now and they're trying some different things. So all on a first say that some of the turnover that you're experiencing may actually be what we might would call good turnover. And that is that they are not a lifetime fit for the business that you're in. And it's painful is that is, if they're leaving the embroidery and screen printing business to go, be a mechanic or go to law school, it may be because they have found what they're calling it, and that may actually be okay. But career growth for that group, if it is their calling, if it is the industry they want to advance in, that team members really got to see where am I now? Let's say I'm a junior person. I'm in the apprentice level. What does it take to go from junior to mid to senior? What does that look like? Where am I now? What are the steps to get there? What would my life look like then? What might pay look like then? We call them growth tracks, but it's really just a simple, progressive, clear guided path on their career. And what I have found is any age group if they feel stuck at all. They're grown to bail. Are prone to at least feel that way. And so it's very important that for that right group of people that you begin to talk to them about more responsibility and what career growth might look like over the next two, three, 5 years. Okay. We struggle with that on one perspective, which is that we're relatively small company. We've got 14 people here right now. We don't anticipate significant growth. We're not intending to grow a lot. We'll grow some. And so realistically, there aren't a lot of positions higher up on the ladder. And trying to figure out how do we help people grow within a small company that itself isn't going to get much bigger, how do we continue to give people new challenges in a sense of growth when you mentioned junior versus senior? You know, if you're a senior printer, there isn't anywhere to go from there other than maybe being the production manager, but we already have one. What do you think about how we can how can we foster growth in an organization that itself isn't growing much? I think with my leaders, I would want to sit down and challenge myself as the owner and the leaders on the future of the business. When you tell me as the owner, it's not going to grow much, and we already have one..

Other things will occur to you. Write those down as you do. This process those things will start bubbling up more and more often in them. It'll start taking shape now. Depending on the kind of book. Your writing people writing fiction tend to work in that way. They don't necessarily know what the outcome is. They go with the flow of where the story is wrapped around the character because they understand what the character is two characters in certain situations and that situation evolves or develops around them and then your story flows. Non-fiction you tend to put an outline. Where's it going to go. Here's the summary. Here's the beginning. Here's what i want to talk about those become your chapter headings so you get a tree you get a skeleton around which you can insert your stories or your information. I've done both love fiction though. Because i like to use my imagination with the character in a certain situation. Why are they going to do now. They just escaped from their shackles. Where are they gonna head. What's going to happen to have the jump over Box or go through a door or swing on a rope. All these things you can add in. Here's an interesting aspect of flow.

Sultan's wisdom by denis galloway and am i correct in that what you're kind of addressing with this whole idea of the pen seems to have minded if it's on i know i know it's a little deeper than that. But what am i correct in the guessing that that has a lot to do with the writers process over a no matter. What of separate from the story. The writers processing is kind of in the idea of that penn. Having a mind of its own it does in a sense When you look at the idea of experiences or suggestions or thoughts occurring your pen starts writing that down for you. Even think through the fought for even complete the thought. Oh here's great idea. Here's something else and so in a sense. The story does flow through you through the payan on the paper and it's something that occurs to you as your as your writing. It's not something you thought about in.

We're not pundits right as brands were here to to help life in some way based on our history and our products and our culture help help make life better in some way for our customers and society at large. So i think it's about what the brand with the brands employees care about. They care more about your brand than anyone. They care more about each other than anyone. Their instincts are usually right when they feel like. We're being too quiet about something or two vocal about.

Sauces added the saxon coast. It has linguistic background. That is very complicated. Because the result of returning ca is because modern welsh linguistic background than you've got an sort of anglo-saxon political control and at the period that the holidays buried you're just beginning to get another linguistic lab as people who are of scandinavian origin.

I couldn't believe they couldn't deliver in two days. Came buried i. I made some predictions in early october. That fda and amazon delivery network was going to break. It ended up not breaking but they broke the post office. They bury them with so met much volume that they literally couldn't couldn't handle it and you're absolutely right. There were very few packages that were delivered to people's doors within two day window within that one day window even still though what they did. This holiday in terms of ramping up delivery final mile warehousing added fifty percent of square footage and like four months. I mean it's historic area. It's pretty incredible what they did so just recently announced. Jeff bezos is going to step down. Ceo and there was a joke on facebook. That says well i guess he's fully invested 401k. Now that's why he's stepping down. But one predictions you have for twenty twenty one with amazon given a new ceo and the hopefully the winding down of the pandemic. Yeah well you know. I hope jeff vases is going to be okay with the pay reduction. Moving from fulltime. Ceo to just executive chairman. You think you'll be okay hope but yeah you look i. I don't think that amazon is going to miss a beat. You know the minute. The announcement came out which by the way was interesting enough announced around the same time as their blow out. Q four earnings call Historic in its own right Potentially to deflect which amazon's pr department is really good at About how great they have benefited in his really tough time for our country But look amazon's not going to miss a beat andy jazzy.

He's just removing himself from some of the shall we say more uncomfortable task. It's going to land on jesse's lap in the next You know one to ten years. As i trust drums or are beating louder and louder. So let's talk about some of the trends that you've been discussing Tell us about how you think. Amazon is getting into healthcare. They are already in healthcare. I mean they're providing primary care for you know scores of their own employees tens of thousands of their employees they They famously removed themselves from joint venture with jamie diamond and berkshire hathaway recently In the rumors from within inside amazon at the reason they did that is because they were holding back and the amazon pharmacy group which spun up recently. we're saying we can't move fast you know. We can't move fast because we're being held up by chasing in berkshire hathaway. So i saw that. A lot of a lot of people in the press came out berry and said oh. This means amazon can't figure out healthcare. It's too difficult. It's too challenging. I didn't see that at all. I just saw that you know amazon. Saw this as cutting weight so that they can really focus on what they do. And that's innovate

Notre Dame Ranks in Top 5 College Football Programs
"I watched the clips of brian. Kelly press conference and he looked like he was exact exasperated. And i don't know if you're a notre dame fan. How do you feel about this. Because he's i mean he's a really really good coach. We do these top. Twenty five lists every year and brian. Kelly definitely should be in the top five and they have really good players. But i don't know and he's right alabama's done this to almost everybody. They actually didn't do it. The florida but you know was there were still you know it's like we'll see if ohio state gets closer. So let's let's fill people in on the quotes if they didn't see them after the game not surprisingly. Maybe he was surprised. I don't know he was asked a lot about. How does the here how frustrating the question was how frustrated is. How frustrating is it to get to a playoff again lose by this margin the margin not the issue. Losing his losing. I don't know really. What the inferences. This football team battled and they made more plays they being alabama made a few more. Plays on the perimeter. I'm not sure really what the question is when you lose football games you know. There's a few more plays jeff to make. We had the opportunity. You watch the game. I watched the game So everybody needs to continue to carry this narrative that not not good enough. Look at the scores of the games. The albums played all year. And i think when you start changing the narrative little bit then somebody asks as you look at it. You feel like the program has gotten a lot closer. What's the next step. You feel like you guys could take need to take i. I don't really wanna continue to go down this path. We're going to keep getting here okay. And we're gonna keep banging at it and you guys watched the game in you. They had the college football player of the year. Who made some dynamic place. We battled. We were right there. So we're going to keep getting back here. And i'm sorry i don't like it or the national media doesn't like it but we're going to go back to work we're gonna keep recruiting. We're going to put ourselves back in this position again I mean i know. He's got to defend the program. And you know what's he going to say like. Oh yeah we're we're we've got a ways to go But you're right like if you're ordering fan who who still believes deep down the program. That should win the national championship. How do you feel about your coach. Basically coming on saying he's basically trying to say yeah. We don't have a devante smith. We don't have nausea harris. But we were good enough that like if we caught them on the day we could one maybe is that is that we took from it. Yeah and i'm thinking about it. It's like this notre dame team. And i would say it from the last from the jalen smith Ronnie stanley era up. So whatever it is i guess. Maybe it's the last five or six years they've had like some special athletes right. I mean ronnie stanley elite talent offensive lineman jalen field. Jalen fields. Jalen was is home. Ultra talented linebacker. They've had Kyle hamilton is as athletic as any any safety. The country i mean they have some of these guys will fuller was as fast and dynamic as any receiver just about. I mean it's not like they haven't kyran williams of big time running back they just don't have quite enough of them right. I mean like they don't have any of them. It's not like you know. The the line from joey galloway said like northwestern's a bunch of reese davis's you know the inference there is like notre dame has has some guys who would play anywhere and they've always had a bunch of good offensive linemen. They have good tight ends. I don't think they're light years away from having like a team that could win a national title. I mean they're they're a top five team. It's just you know. I don't know like like maybe this is a better way to frame it. Like if they were playing ohio state they have somehow gotten by alabama. I mean Let's take alabama out of the equation if they were playing ohio state and somehow it was a two three game. Let's say let's say that it was just a playoff game but it wasn't. You know as the i. I could see Notre dame beating ohio state. Even after what. I just saw from ohio state alpha. If justin feels plays away did tonight. I couldn't but like i don't think it's out of the realm of possibility like i think there are. You know i watched their. I think notre dame's better team than georgia. I think not notre dame honesty's a better team than florida now. It's easy to say that after you've seen some of these teams get exposed some but lake and those teams. Those teams have played with alabama on a given night right. So i just don't think they have as much margin for error right
How much has Notre Dame closed the gap? We're about to find out against Alabama
"Let's move on college football. Alabama notre dame set the plate for the first time since the two thousand twelve. Bcs national championship game the crimson tide. One by twenty eight points now. That's just one of several high profile losses. Notre dame has suffered over the last twenty years. Take a look at this and take it. And since nineteen ninety eight notre dame has lost all six of its bcs and nuhere six bowl games most recently to clemson and the two thousand eighteen cotton bowl now the fighting irish been outscored by one hundred and forty four points during that span yet. Here is brian kelly. What they have the proof. We're knocking at the door every year playing really good teams great opponents and there's a league football team You know i i. I don't know why this narrative continues to pop up when we're always in the games. No we haven't won a national championship. That's correct I'm not changing the record but we are there every single year and we are grinding it out just like everybody else. Twelve paul finebaum and joey galloway. Paul what is your reaction to brian. kelly's comments well. He not only has notre dame not won a national championship. They haven't even competed in these games. And i think that's really the issue here ryan but brian. Kelly is trying to lower the expectations even lower than they already are. Most people think alabama is going to completely viscera them friday afternoon. And i don't know how you could argue at that point. He's trying to bake into the cake. Listen we're we're a great program we're notre dame we're in the playoffs every year or two. We just can't win the big one. So don't blame me. Don't blame my players. It's a crazy approach. But he's just trying to keep his team calm before they walk into the slaughter friday afternoon it's astounding to me. If he's actually thinking that way the idea of don't worry guys. Were still good no matter what so joey. It makes me think to brian. Kelly point do we hold notre dame to an unfair standard on the other side of that. I don't think it's unfair. Standard people just want to see the four best teams in the country and they wanna see good gains when it gets into college football playoff and if they're not good games than the question always arises. Did you deserve to be there now. I do believe that. Notre dame's four best teams in the country. And i believe they have been You know in recent years when when they get into the playoff and so i don't look at the end result and say well. They didn't deserve to be there absolutely earned their right to be their way. They've played this season. I think this is a better football team that we've seen in recent years unfortunately for notre dame going against a ridiculously good offense in alabama. So it's gonna be tough
Jupiter and Saturn will form the first "double planet" in 800 years
"What astronomers call a great conjunction, the closest they could be seen in the sky together. For nearly 800 years, according to Scientific American and Astronomical conjunction occurs when any two heavenly bodies appear to pass or meet each other as seen from Earth. To make one great, though, requires an encounter between our solar system's two largest planets, the orbits of Jupiter and Saturn, a line to allow the giant worlds to seemingly convene roughly every 20 years. But the last time Jupiter and Saturn appeared so close was July 16th. 16 23 back when Galloway was still alive, a little more than a decade after he first used to telescope to discover Jupiter's four largest moons that now collectively bear his name, Great conjunctions. Have at times drawn scientists to speculate over their possible links with major events. For instance, Johannes Kepler investigated whether the star of Bethlehem Which in the Nativity story of the Gospel of Matthew Guided the three wise men to Christ. Birth was a great conjunction. Calculating that one in fact, did occur in seven BC Is it possible the Madge I or Wiseman and we don't know. There were three. Remember the Bible never mentions three Wiseman. But is it possible the Madge I who were basically astrologers were following the great conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter? Well, one did occur in seven BC, So the timing seems to be about right. Where is he? Who has been born king of the Jews for we saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him. It makes sense to me that God would use such an alignment of heavenly bodies to announce the birth of a king or other important events like sign posts. Genesis Chapter one verse 14 and God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be forced signs and for seasons and for days and years. He determines the number of the stars he gives to all of them their names some Fort 1 47 4, But for those that study Astro theology, they see the Bible as Astrological allegory. The story of Jesus they believe is really about the sun s u N rather than son s. O N. Passing through the Zodiac each year. And indeed, there are numerous examples where the life of Jesus, beginning with his birth seemed to align if you will, quite neatly with the astrological Zodiac. Consider that the sun s U.

"Hey welcome to in the thickness is a podcast politics race and culture from a POC. Perspective. HORSA and I'm Jerry Galloway. Rela. We have a very special guest joining us from Southern California Jacob Sobre. He's award winning journalist correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC and Hey a best selling author. Now, what's up Jacob? So good to be with you guys you know have wanted to do this for so long with you and I'm I'm just grateful to be here with you together I know he's a fan. He's a fan of in the thick fan. Yes. We love that we love fans of the pod so. We're going to be talking about an issue that you have called an American tragedy and this is the issue and the history of family. I don't even like that term because it's really families being ripped apart torn apart. In your new book separated inside an American tragedy you readers through a very intimate look into the policy into the families that have been torn apart and traumatized. You also talk to policymakers and government officials who ultimately were responsible for creating and really promoting this is stemmed separation of an estimated five, thousand, four hundred children from their parents at the hands of the government and I. Say. And still counting. Yeah and despite the fact that president trump signed an executive orders supposedly ending the policy of Charles Separations in two thousand eighteen, the ACLU alleges that there have been more than one thousand family separation since that executive order and more recently propublica reported on how the trump administration has used the corona virus as a pretext to circumvent the normal legal protections allowed to migrant children. So since March ice has circulated thousands of migrant children through hotel black sites making it virtually impossible for lawyers, family members and advocates to locate them and deported them in order to quote prevent the introduction of Covid nineteen into the US. Even though many of the deported children have tested negative for the virus. So Jacob here have reported on these issues for many many years. These policies you know predate trump. So before we get into the current iteration of this shit show, I wanNA talk about looking back into that history and actually. You great job of setting it and in a moment we'll talk about how it's touched of us. Really personally. But Jacob. From your perspective, talk to us about the origins of family separation and how the stage was being set for these policies way before trump entered the white. House. So yeah, you gotTa tell us how did we get here? Yeah. I think Maria. That what the trump administration did and we talked about ripping families apart family separation what to call this really what it was in the words of Physicians for human, rights and Nobel Peace Prize winning organization was torture at met the. Definition of torture according to the United. Nations it was government sanctioned child abuse according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and you know make no mistake. This is on the trump administration's hands. No administration in the history of the United States of America had ever attempted or done anything like this in a systematic way. But the fact that the trump administration was able to execute this policy was only possible because of decades of failed deterrent based immigration border policy by Democratic and Republican administrations. This will come as no news to you. But for people who don't know in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, the Clinton administration put into place their border patrol a policy called prevention through deterrence. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring record number of new border guards by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before by cracking down on illegal hiring, which was designed went along with the first wave of border infrastructure walls. Fences what have you and the idea was that by doing that people who are migrating to this country quote unquote illegally would have to go on more dangerous or deadly journeys to get here and sure enough you know many people have died trying I e let them die trying. Let them die trying. That's exactly right. After the Clinton administration. We had the Bush administration which obviously created H S and expanded the border patrol exponentially dozens of agencies charged with Homeland Security. Will now be located within one cabinet department. With the mandate and legal authority. To protect our people, the Obama Administration obviously deported more people than any other president ever no matter how they are. No matter their reasons. The eleven million who broke these laws should be held accountable and we got to this place where we had donald trump is president saying when Mexico census people, they're not sending their best they bringing drugs. Crime, their rapists, often not the pictures of Jay Johnson walk through the same facilities that I saw separated kids in and look yes. The Obama Administration Limited circumstances did separate parents and children from each other and the reason that they did it was circumstances where you had parents who were perhaps violent criminals or dealing a narcotrafficking but they never did on a systematic basis Jay Johnson? The Homeland Security Secretary, or Cecilia Munoz from the Domestic Policy Council. Bowl said to me on the record in my book we could never do. What the trump administration did it doesn't mean the idea wasn't proposed. It came up, it came up in the situation of the White House but they never did it and the minute Donald Trump became president. This idea was on the table right about a Valentine's Day meeting and twenty seventeen and the officer Kevin McLean then the acting commissioner of Customs and border. Protection they wanted to do this from the get-go and now the results of of this policy are very familiar to all of
Big Tech Funds a Think Tank Pushing for Fewer Rules. For Big Tech.
"Dig. Tech firms are schmoozing regulators into to not doing their jobs. Thirty four anti-trust officials were wined and nine last year by the global anti-trust into the suit, a part of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George. Mason University in Fairfax Virginia basically don't regulate us. Please enjoy this delicious meal. Global Antitrust Institute is funded mostly entirely by big companies affiliated foundations including Amazon Google qualcomm George Mason I covered it when I was at the Washington, Post they were always doing this kind of thing like putting up, you know. Being very friendly to corporate corporate citizens as I recall during this time when they were just getting started. Trying to attract a bigger level of professor there and so talk about this Mr Academics in terms of these things that get funded at universities, you institute Scott. Galloway Institute of Jabal Thank for example. That's right. like it's it's were. Universities are not immune from the lure of capitalism and a big component of. Your ability to get tenure is to get research funded, and it's difficult if you WANNA know. If. You WanNa. Know the outcome and a conclusion of research. Just find who's paid for it. Yeah, and in the case of most academic research. It's a lot of times it's funded. By nonpartisan sources are the university itself, and so if there is a a lease bad version of peer reviewed research, you're GONNA. Find it typically universities, but these think tanks if they're funded by. Certain And we have him on the left care we fund. We found groups to do research to basically support our know our narrative so i. don't think this is anything unusual. The question is abound power in that is. In addition to this think tank Sarah now more fulltime Amazon. Lobbyists making I would bet somewhere between four hundred eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Then there are sitting US senators now one hundred full time lobbyist from Amazon living in DC, taking all of these nice women and men to to golf into dinner and saying hey, we just a big fan of your leadership. We fight to get involved in your campaign by the way when this whole antitrust off comes up. We assume that you're you're for capitalism. Your four consumer lower consumer prices. And this is the danger, but I don't think these think tanks. We have on both sides nervous now whenever I time talking to one today and I was like Oh, where did you get your money? Like I never thought this like in terms of. The university and I was like I'm going to have to check in case, I'm. Saying something that sounded reasonable, but it was sort of like who's paying your bills and you know there was some controversy around some of this Kobe testing of where these these researchers have, it just feels like a lot of steph feels. Bogus like. It feels bogus when they're doing this and they're trying to influence, but I think many some universities are doing real research. Others are much more pay for play and I think that's that's really when I was a does. You've inspired her synapse farmer talking about this when I was? Five years into my Nyu Kerr invited me to a meeting where they were talking about doing some research about around financial markets and the impact on IPO's and They admitted meeting. And there was someone from the Nasdaq, and they were willing to fund it Funds Research and fund even fund center, and as one of the guys in the meeting Professor Bruce Buchanan who I think's one of the clear blue flame thinking economists in the world you know at the end of the meeting, said a not comfortable with the Nasdaq taking money. Money from the Nasdaq for research around the financial markets, because ultimately we're. GonNa end up saying that that the Nasdaq has the right you know. He just wasn't comfortable with private enterprise being injected into academic research, and then the meeting ended and I was like what the hell are you thinking? We have an opportunity to go great research here. Don't so pedantic. And as I've thought about it I'm wrong and he was right. Yeah, you can't help it. You can't help, but if they're paying for like all the smoking ones so much damage in terms of like smoking wants. We're like cigarettes aren't bad. That went on for a long time and Whatever the whatever the research is, it just seems like if it's cooked, it's cooked then. How do you pay for like the university should presumably just pay. Pay For right and live and die on the quality of the research, but that's sort of naive. I suspect you in the majority of about any sort of fifteen year overdue apology to a Professor Buchanan Vice. Chancellor Ingo Walter felt the same way that this was just. This creates too much opportunity for bias research so anyways. Net Net in it's a sample size of one, but Nyu takes that got role being a neutral arbiter very seriously. and. You have these funding you know. I'm thinking of all the different organizations are they seem like the like their criminal justice stuff Very Friedman! It feels like it's really good research right now, and that's the thing it's like who you have. They should at least be very clear about who's paying for it, so you know and and what they might turf. What what the what reports they might put in the drawer like the government is doing right now,
How the Crisis Could Embolden Big Tech
"This week. Microsoft Apple Amazon Alphabet and facebook all reported their quarterly earnings typically investors view. These numbers as a way to measure how companies doing and the prospect of money to be made in the future but with the economy in disarray. These numbers tell pretty singular story yes things have slowed but they're nowhere near as dire as what other industries are seeing. Do you think these tech companies view earnings right now as as a one off you know just sort of a singular news event or are they something that can tell a broader story about where the companies are now in time. I think they're probably not beating their chests from what I've talked to people inside the companies. There is caution because nobody knows when the bottom is gonNA fall out. No one knows what's going to happen to the economy in on that creates anxiety for companies like Google and facebook that make all their money from advertising and the big advertisers are the brick and mortar world. You know the department stores. Even though they're failing the travel industry will there? That's tanking but at the same time like I'm unlinked in job alerts for Google and they're adding thirty jobs a day and facebook saying it's GonNa hire ten thousand people well if you're working at that kind of company are you gonNa feel versus anywhere else in America right now. Well that's the weird irony and you wrote about this saying that the pandemic is sort of a once in a lifetime opportunity for these companies. What are the I? Guess the specifics of that why they are able to do things like hire ten thousand people if your facebook well for one goes back to the cash reserve that they're sitting on Microsoft alone. I think is worth one point three trillion dollars to give some perspective that is bigger than the economy of forty seven. Us states these companies have just amassed the level at which they have profited since the great recession is just. It's really profound. You Know Amazon. Could buy all boutique retailers in the US right now if they wanted to so they're sitting on all this cash so they have a fallback. I mean look at Boeing. It's a major. Us company they're cutting tens of thousands of jobs. That says that. Tekken away in a class of by itself when you look at other major American companies and how they're faring. It's not just the mom and pop. Businesses that are laying off people. It's major American companies. That don't have the cash runway to withstand a crisis. These enormous cash reserves held by just a few big tech companies are the result of years of growth. Elizabeth says if you trace these reserves back to their source. The story begins during the last economic crisis in two thousand eight during the great recession the whole economy the whole market took its lex but what happened afterwards is very interesting because the great recession also coincided with the advent of the smartphone so just remember like smartphones. Come about people start using their phones for everything. Two Thousand and nine people start developing apps years later. People are using APPS for this and that but no one's really shopping on their phones and this is a big question around. Will people buy things on their smartphone? Well that is something that facebook and Google figured out to great effect and once they solve that question you really see their revenues just start to completely accelerate and kind of just catapult ahead of the rest of the digital advertising industry the tech platforms become the hubs for all of our reading habits and material and also on the back end all of the measurement and delivery of ads. And so people woke up to that. I want to say twenty and fifteen twenty sixteen all of a sudden you have these tech giants and everyone else's failing and the recession. That's Kinda come because of Cova is going to accelerate that so it's a lot of the same industries when we think about you know who was decimated during the great recession brick and mortar retail. Hospitality Media That are laying people off right now and tech is really taking over a lot of those spaces and certainly did back then. Do you think these industries can can weather this or is this. Just a truly transformational moment. Oh I think it's a truly transformational moment. I think I have to paraphrase Professor Scott. Galloway of nyu is so stupid on all these topics and he said you know. It's a tale of two Americas right now. So it's big tacking. It's everyone else. Everyone else includes not just other parts of the economy but smaller companies within the tech industry. Not only the giants have the cash to outlasted economy put on pause but also the ability to work actively to edge out competition for the services that people are still using when we think about other parts of the Silicon Valley ecosystem. That aren't the big four. What happens to these smaller companies? You wrote that you know a bunch of startup jobs. I think thirty thousand have been lost since March eleventh and yet at the same time we've seen companies like zoom. You know really flourish right now. What happens to all of them? So zoom is a great example because right now in this moment everyone's like zooms. The you know the success story of the you know the the the poster child of Success Story. Yeah during Cova. Not that anyone wants to say we're profiting off cove. It and I know they don't feel that way but certainly there's that exhilaration of their business just exploding. I think it exclude ninety percent just during the lockdowns but just look at. What's also happened in the last week that speaks to the power of giants? Google has announced. Hangouts meet they've created their own version of it and facebook is launching their own competitor to zoom into house. Party another APP that has exploded. I think I wrote in the Story House Party. According to APP Annie has grown fifteen hundred percent and so right. Now you're saying well. No one's heard of no one's using hangout. Google hangouts meat and no one's using facebook's thing but just three years from now we'll zoom exist will house party exist. Elizabeth says this moment gives tech giant's both the opportunity to push out smaller competition and capitalize on our new habits and also a chance to deflect or at least delay new regulations that were supposed to take effect this year. One place where you can see this happening is in California. At the end of last year the state passed a new law that would give people control of their data. It's called the California Consumer Privacy Act Law went into effect in January of this year and in California. The law says you can go to any tech company. You can ask them for your data. What data do you have on me? And if you don't like it you can have some to delete it. And so companies have said that there's a lot of cost of compliance with that law and so for a while they've been asking for a delay in the enforcement of the law because if you don't follow the law it comes with big penalties and you see the lobbying groups already for tech saying there's no way that we can comply with this on time. The enforcement goes into effect in July. There's no way we can make it by July. We need an extension and really kind of making that argument and at the same time increasingly on the other end becoming effectively. Essential Services for governments essential because governments are now relying on that same data to track the disease. I used the example in the story of Gavin. Newsom press conferences and he's holding up modeling for the Charting the course of the disease and those models some of them are coming from underlying data from companies like Google and facebook and so especially in California you see it because of the relationship of the tech companies to the state before the state was adversarial with big tax. I mean even when Governor Newsom came on came on board as governor one of the first things he talked about was like data bill of rights for people and it's and yet they're using the data that is collected now to model the course of Corona virus so that minutes office is is a big reversal

The Tesla Model Y is sized just right, and this will help it stand tall against rivals - Teslarati
"The company's tremendously innovative. It doesn't it takes enormous risks it. It's I forget the new model that they launched last year the more affordable model but that seems to be getting traction the pickup truck inspired this kind of this tesla like wondering that people have come to expect expect. They're not afraid to do things. Incredibly different supposed to their China. Production is coming on action can now. They're producing a thousand cars. A day is so they've hit. They're starting to do something something that they've never done before. And that is actually hit targets. They're famous or not hitting them salute. The company is firing a I would say it's firing on all cylinders if it wasn't an electric car but it's conducting on all Lithium Iodine or whatever. The appropriate analogy is the company's executing congratulations to them glad the the Bulls won. I don't have a position position in the stock but it's interesting seems a little bit more reinvigorated. I mean at one point. He was tweeting from the China factory. And then he was. Somehow it's a SPACEX facility. It was like what are you cloned yourself like. You know it's interesting. He's quite you know I think he's probably emboldened by winning the winning the case and sort of getting himself in line Ryan and so You know he's got a lot of energy that guy. I'll tell you that whether it's it's huge vindication for him because you know the stock's up above where he said he was gonNA take the company opening private when he committed blatant manipulation improved at the. Sec Hell still lacks sack and is not there to protect investors but protect management anyway But it is. There's just snow getting around at Tesla's on fire. I couldn't have been more wrong on that one.
What the Streaming Wars Mean for the Future of Advertising
"Right. So we're heading twenty twenty You've been doing an amazing job In a biased way. Say This uncovering the rise of volley streaming platforms and what we sort of think of the future of TV. I want to look forward to to twenty twenty but I like what what do you think. Twenty nine thousand nine was the year of if you will is your growth like there was a lot of growth of everyone obviously talks about the growth. A lot of people were moving industry mean and and I think that kind of sets up twenty two thousand for that's when the growing pains are going to start but like what's Gimme specifics. Well so in the upfront this year with advertisers and the TV now works digital played a bigger part in getting those budgets because in the past digital had been an add on for the networks and the also the prices had been higher then especially when it comes to like the cable networks. Their digital inventory was priced a lot higher than their linear inventory and so that had been a pain point but now with linear viewership decline Kline in they had to lower the prices for the digital inventory in order to get the bigger volume commitments. So it seems like when we're talking about the streaming wars and a a lot of people talk about distributors. We're actually talking about a bunch of different worse right. This is like what is it the thirteen years war. I don't remember but there. There's a lot of different people fighting writing. So how do you group them. What I'm thinking about is like I'm thinking net flicks is going up against Disney and interest and that is like this Inter Galactic Battle But then there are other battles going on. Yeah because then you have like the Nisha Suad Services and s fat come on subscription streamers But then then there's the free ad supported streaming TV services like the Pluto. TV's Zuma's Samsung TV plus roku channel. I N BTV and that's becoming more of of a war because right now there they all look the same. They all have the same old programming the same like movies that you would normally watch on like yeah Sunday afternoon on cable. TV So when you're looking at twenty twenty. Are we looking at a typical middle market crunch. I mean we're seeing this across pretty much every area we cover in in cross glossy with fashion and beauty and in Monterey retail with retail. I mean we're seeing the middle get crunched everywhere and that's going to happen and folks folks are concerned about it like BEEN MEETING WITH TV network executives and also you know digital entertainment executives and they're concerned about it because they they recognize that that's going to be the case that with connected TV. It's like mobile all over again for publishers where it doesn't really make sense for a lot of these companies to have their own connected. TV CBS because people aren't gonNA use them. They're going to stick with like a Netflix at Disney Youtube Pluto the aggregate. There's right and so there. It's the bundle all over again cowboy What about on the advertiser's side I think we've been doing a lot of coverage around you know some very core basic issues when it comes to connected. TV advertising. Like why the hell do I see the same ad repeatedly and why can And I thought you got into like a lot of the good details but why that what's happening. What what kind of growing pains you expect to see for the industry In Two thousand twenty when it comes to to connected. TV advertising a think the growth is still an issue there when it comes to getting more dollars because there was Someone Outta Holding Agency. I was talking to saying that you don't have to spend and is much when it comes to connected TV because you can be more targeted and because the ad loads are lighter to there just isn't as much inventory to be buy in so for anyone who's expecting gene TV dollars to shift entirely into digital. That's not gonNA happen because they don't have to shift entirely. You actually save money. If you're not retired Sir I mean as a a too simplistic to say that I mean there's so much of this viewing is going on That you there's no advertising involved everyone wants subscriptions right Yeah who has a different model but Scott Galloway talks about advertising becoming a tax on the poor I are we. We seen this actually play out Where there just isn't places for this TV advertising to move to because so much of the streaming viewing is an Anon- at environment? Well you have. I mean who the interesting thing with them is. They're limited commercials. Subscriptions since here is their most popular beer and with like their sprint and their spotify deals they've been doing a lot to push subscribers specifically for that here and so that that serves as something of a model but again then it's an aggregate or thing where people can sign up for Hulu because they'll get a bunch of different shows and movies that they can watch for someone WHO's smaller publisher. I don't know if people are going to be as tolerant of that okay so final thing Working on all these bold calls Going into two thousand twenty predictions right but Give us Keeps winning bowl calls. I think this martine manufacturers will band together and try to negotiate harder carriage deals when it comes to connected. TV with the different media companies. Okay so give me an example of that Well well it's already the case in the cable market where you have like the regional cable providers who they negotiate together as a group and I think the SMART ATV manufacturers are going to start doing that because you have Samsung already selling ads on its smart TV platform Now starting to same and I think more and more of them are seeing. There's an opportunity there because people don't buy. TV's they buy TV's like once every seven years or so and so these smart TV manufacturers have to figure out okay where can we get revenue in between. Ah People buy new. TV's okay cool. Thanks Tom Thank you.
Edward Snowden And Mass Surveillance At the start of this decade
"A federal judge ruled that proceeds from Edward Jones Memoir permanent record to be paid to the US this government because he violated the terms of his employment contract with the US government in publishing the book. You clearly don't follow me on twitter. You're GONNA love this. I wrote real quickly on twitter. There's so many it's with someone. Summarize twitter perfectly as does not pay. I know I wrote espionage a bitch and I know you don't like it when I used that word and so many people weighed in against against me and it's inspired me and as you to learn more about Edward Stone because a lot of people who unless they're bought as far as I know the Russian show is trying to gain my trust but who seem thoughtful weighed in and said you got this wrong. Edward Snowden is a patriot. It's there's much great podcasts. You could read the book. I'm sending you the the book I am sending you the book I'm going to learn more about Edward Snowden. That's your Christmas present. The free book I got from it again here. We go again and going to give it to me an intermission at cats right anyway. So what I'm GONNA we're going out here. We can't Handy Randy. Who Might Not Randy? Were coming to your show. All right. So Edward Snowden you think he should not be paid for the for the money to go to government because he violated the terms of his employment contract. That's what thank you will be going to be more measured here. I need to learn more about Edward Snowden because a lot of people that I respect said turn got it. Got It wrong on this one. So I'm going to try and learn. Learn more about how a guy decides to state secrets. Shove a thumb drive up his ass and moved to China and Russia's a hero so I'm going to try to understand how that makes my hero but anyways anyways and I'm sure the Russians anything cube there was no shoving with the thumb drive.

"We know one thing's going to be different this year the playoff it doesn't look like Alabama is going to get there how curious are you to see who the number five team is going to be in the rankings when they come out tomorrow night I I can't imagine it being anybody but you tell at this point I guess Oklahoma does have a have a chance that I think more importantly it'll be interesting to see where Baylor is were you taught is and and then where you know because those those are the games to get even Oregon is going to come down to could you give more credit to by winning their conference whether it is Oklahoma Baylor winner or the Utah Oregon winner if you don't know if Oklahoma when those games talking to Joey Galloway was Michelle pens or performance sign enjoys doing at that spot is going to cite a lot going for for that fourteen but right now there seems to be such a clear weight class difference at one through three when we talk about is your heiau state and Clemson if you had to you know put any meaningful amount of money on it right now who do you think of those three is actually the best on the field regardless of what the resume looks like I would be afraid to put any amount of money on any of them on a deadly all three teams on a given day could be each other because they are that talented I think I think it took awhile for people to get back to respecting Clinton you can go through time frame and in a season where they don't look great and it makes people nervous they sort of jump off board but if you've watched Clinton on film all fees long even even when they did have a one point loss the north I would they didn't have a great day there are extremely talented football team that has been there and done and that is the advantage that Clinton has over LSU over Ohio state they've been in the past for five years so they they what to expect and what happens when you get in the playoffs but as far as from my account definitely things on the field it will be hard to pick one over the other two so Joey you had mentioned that you think you tell still be number five so if that's the case or by the Oklahoma six and Baylor seven with organ probably in their fourteen may be moving up to twelve so still outside the top ten so for Utah to make it into the final four should Georgia lose is that mean this is going to come down to style points to the committee yeah I think so and I think in a season where of the committee had said that eyeball test matters because if if we wanted to just go by that metric of this thing then there is no way that that was you would still be number one because from metric standpoint the metrics are still LSU's favor over high speed but they took a high sticking jumped Ellis you last week even before Ohio state beat Michigan I took a Baylor team and dump them five spot in beating up on right ten fifteen I don't believe the committee is saying that are both cast in BC then is very important and so you talk going to have to make a big statement when they play organ to really take the cake because many times they Hey even the the Oklahoma when was I better win at the end we think you talk the better team sorry Joey Galloway with us on the shell pens performance line here I'm going to win go on the field as we can we know is rivalry week and Ohio state Michigan played a game that was lopsided yet again after Jim Harbaugh was sort of getting into it with the media here at where are we at with the state of Jim Harbaugh in this Michigan program is it fair to judge him as harshly as some want to on his record against his rival alone I think it's fair to judge him on his record and his record has been a good anybody the culture that Michigan or at Ohio state you will be judged on what you do in game against Michigan Ohio state did the bigger gains the the Michigan state and state that's just the way it goes now the interesting question at the end about the talent gap there is a clear talent gap but I also understand it closer about can't come out and say Hey there there's a big talent gap here he's trying to close that gap the charter proved get players in there and he also had to get his players to believe that they can win so you can't come out later the talent that anybody's watch this game past five years there is a clear talent gap it would take almost a a a collapse by Ohio state moved to Michigan in these past few years they just haven't done that so Joey Galloway with this miss can find himself in a tough spot right because obviously Jim Harbaugh has brought things back to the university that weren't there before he got there but V. Hartle and in many people's minds the only game that matters is Ohio state and he's gone were no Michigan coach has ever been allowed to go over four oh one five to start his career any other Michigan coach has come close to that has been fired well before they got to on five so one of the do I think it comes down to what what's important to you if your mission your guide to making a decision is it important to you that mission is now back on the national scene and back to eighteen they can get you nine ten one in a season even if they do lose to Ohio state are there still in that conversation they're still talked about as much as any team out there or are you in in the only team that if I hate we have to win the Lima Ohio state we have to win the big ten we have to compete for a national championship I would I would assume that that is the thinking of Michigan because of their program because of their history because of where they've been they've won national champions before thank you would think that they will be in the mindset of we want to compete for the big ten championship we want to get to the player who won have kept what it all and if you're in that mindset I can't imagine how long you stay down this path now I'm not saying that I believe are about to be fired after this season but I do believe they will take a long hard look at what their options are because again they're they're not close right now to were high status Joey Galloway joining us enjoy Alabama loses the iron bowl they're out of the playoffs for the first time we know they'll lose their share of players to the draft including a two of the quarterback as well and so mac Jones can come back to his brother was a a freshman there as well how do you see this team coming back I've always said nobody paid any three better than Alabama it makes me angry for a season and I am looking forward to seeing what they do that the the now not just to a you wonder what's going to happen your magic they're gonna lose a couple the receivers you know in in that group of men that that might be the best able receivers we see at one school with with when you add in I went to with healthy it is almost disappointing to think that I think with that much talent dealt with the injury you've dealt with situations that won't allow them to get in because they may have been monumental they think about the amount of players that would have been in this year's playoffs if you throw Alabama and that makes I think that was the fun part of looking at it and so you look at fifteen now and you know they recruit well they're gonna lose two or loosen the from the receivers there of course moved to be effective that one thing we do know about Alabama by makes even he's been able to reload a year after year after year as well as anybody has ever done it and so it usually fun to watch how Alabama comes back after having a disappointing season they will be they will be good next year it'll be interesting to see how

"Authorities in the bahamas say they are expecting even more horrible news in the wake of hurricane dorian medical staff telling c._n._n. As they treat the many wounded that they are dreading and bracing themselves to learn how many are dead the storm killed at least thirty people by last official count but given the overwhelming damage to the islands and the hundreds of people who remain missing behaving officials believed the real death toll is quote quote unimaginable new video. Today gives an example of hurricane durians forest. You're looking right now at a hummer. That's around six thousand pounds. The the powerful floodwaters picked up that vehicle and slammed it through the side of house during his currently off north carolina's outer banks as a category one hurricane still flooding towns and knocking out power but it is the bahamas reeling from total disaster the u._s. coastguard alone has rescued get more than two hundred people there. A helicopter crew described seeing the avocado islands in the bahamas for the first time. The town was just looks like a landfill saw. The houses were dismantled. It was trash everywhere in ever c._n._n.'s patrick ofman reports parts for us now from the bahamas where he tells us he was struck by the silence and the destruction and the stench of death areas of of grand bahama island means driving through still flooded streets demand streets that are no longer streets. This area in the east of the island highland has until now been inaccessible since the storm little to no help has arrived the force of the hurricane through cars through buildings the storm orbital out here the category five leveling whole towns many rode out the storm in their homes. Many did not survive pastor. Joey saunders was on the third floor of his home with his son. When the storm surge crashed in these saturday make out to the second floor of the house and been put ten minutes in aside to flow to the third floor you know in the modern that flow optima head and we felt like strong current trying to break loose everything he cracks and this was in the middle of the night one thirty in the morning and then the current was so strong then the roof sarah to lift a nest thing i remember i was underneath the water my son's getting i noticed he had to searched like i guess he just disappeared socially and i heard him screaming daddy daddy daddy. He was in the water at that point right. He's ready gone in minutes later. When i came on the water i tried my hand. I caught onto the trust and re roof carried mealy so we will lake but six hundred feet away away from each other's for two days and be caught up into the pine tree with thirty two feet high surf the water carried. You know pine tree in the middle of the night. Your son was a ways away from you. What was going through your mind. You must have been terrified. Yes i was hoping that he was alive and he thought i had also also wasn't tells you know the two days later that'd be so he was under the trailer idea not sold another government has warn warn people the death count could spike in places like iraq where everyone knows of dead or missing family and neighbors that news is no surprise even though this is one of the hardest hit areas help from the government is yet to arrive either. The government is on his way. He doesn't take a bit of time. Can you are the settlements but they do anything. Gradually you know. Do you wish they were moving quicker. I yes i wish it can move quicker. People desperately need food and water before time time runs out a lot of lost most of their clothes water food basics right now. It and we are in the town of hierarchy. This is where dorian category five came in installed. These people had category five winds for over for four hours. They say behind me what house just had the front of it knocked in and it was completely flooded. Believe it or not this used to be a neighborhood. There was house after house <music> after house. They were all gone. There were three people who were in this house. A mother her daughter and a granddaughter houses swept away into the ocean knows where they are. They are officially listed as missing but residents say they fear that most likely they were swept in the ocean and it will never be seen again throughout the day. We've seen helicopters coast guard helicopters hovering over spots in this area residents say that's how they know. Another body has been found and the grim work continues and at this point we're told by residents. They don't expect for anymore survivors to be jake patrick ottoman. Thanks so much for that story c. n. N.'s paula newton joins me now live from a different part of the islands <hes> she's at an airfield in nassau which is now being used as a staging area for aid and rescue rescue teams in paula. I mean frankly it could take years for the bahamas to recover from this. If ever the bahamas will be for for many decades likely transformed by this and the reason is that you were dealing with islands and keys that are isolated at times spanning over several hundred miles this says the deployment area unfortunately jake and not for lack of trying with the aid effort has been in fact spotty and chaotic you have that mix of both government and volunteer aid and given they they said how widespread the needed the need is it is difficult to really ascertain if people are getting everything that they need and when we first start with the basics the food in the water then there's people who need to be evacuated and then as patrick just told you in very grim detail there is search and recovery and that search and recovery mission is also very important gordon because it keeps away disease that call listen. We're here in nassau. This is also where they're bringing evacuees. I spoke to elizabeth nixon. I mean her story about. Even getting outta here was crazy. They put the kids or nieces and nephews in coolers to get them out but after that they had to split up at the airport in marsh harbour what happens some of them came here. Those children with some relatives tips are still at the airport tick. Listen to elizabeth nixon. Those babies can't stand minute avenue eaten last night. They said there was an airport and they they at the airport right now. Daily front that is so chaotic you know if those will catch trying to push through a lot you know the issue here is that she saying it's frantic that is not the way on day six that you wanna see all of this unfold and she's desperate because she knows that those children have not eaten. She knows they do not not have water. Jake <hes> listen the challenge ahead. It is quite significant all right paul. Thank you so much for that reporting <hes>. Let's go now to dr caroline burnett galloway. She's on the phone from the bahamas. Choose the medical chief of staff at princess margaret hospital which is the only hospital in nassau still able to treat critical all patients in the entire bahamas <hes> doctor. Thank you for joining us first of all. How are you doing. How are you holding up. How is your family. Thank you jake <hes>. My family is fine. <hes> and we're all rolling up with is a great team effort. It's it's tiring. It's exhausting <hes> <hes>. It's the most traumatizing hearing some of the stories of our patients that come in but we have to keep going. You're the only one taking critical patients right now. How in in nassau how strained or your resources we've come together and and deployed stop and me shepherd through that we're managing. <hes> initial wave of critical patients from arbuckle has they've come in. We've admitted taken them to the operating freaking there too if necessary i know the second wave of the walking wounded are coming in initially they came by koos guard helicopter and the airports so now open to regular plates are bringing more patients in but <hes> with with very strict and tight triage resorts in the patient offending them to a public health clinic or after come into this. Don't you told c._n._n. That you're treating the wounded right now but preparing for the dead you believe that the death toll is is much higher than thirty right correct. How much higher do you think it might be i. I can't estimate but it's going to be high. We are preparing some people coming to you. <hes> have been trapped in their homes in some cases on top of their homes for days on end. What kind of you've conditions are they. In by the time they get to you so dehydrated exhausted <hes> emotionally exhausted i <hes> <hes> somehow metabolic abnormalities from the long exposure and they had a chronic illness like diabetes hypertension.
