Why Dallas Cowboys' Andy Dalton will seamlessly replace Dak Prescott, for now
"To win all this great stuff courtesy of Miller Lite the only beer of the Dallas Cowboys. We're please rejoin on Cowboys Beats by Mark Schofield to touch down wire part of USA Today and Thursday. Let's start with Mark you specialize in evaluating the quarterback position. So let's start with Andy Dalton and give me your 2020 evaluation of Andy Dalton. Where is he off quarterback hierarchy and how much of a drop-off is between he and Dak Prescott. Well, I'm sure you guys I won't even give you the choice. I'll do the good news first the good news here for Cowboys packages that he still might like now, I'll be the best quarterback in the NFC East partly a reflection on how everybody else is played because Washington quarterback situation is a mess Django Jones doesn't seem to be quite have put it together yet and caution. Once while a good quarterback has struggled this year. I mean I've struggled around him Lane Johnson has hurt historically once has struggled without land Johnson in a life. And so almost by default you can make the argument that and you talked to might be the best quarterback in the division. Not a flip side of that is it's a bad division, which might mean that Andy Dalton could still get you to the playoffs and get you a dog. You titled ready in 30 is a drop-off Jack Prescott. I think that's an acceptable fact. You don't think anybody will push back on where Eddie Dalton is right now is he's a quarterback that he can still run most probably eighty-five to ninety percent of your offense with you. Just let it go enough that some of your plays that you have in there for Dad, press God to take advantage of his athleticism may have to check out of the Playbook there might be some more quarterback designs ones that you probably don't want to use just because now if you lose any. And you're really in trouble so you probably don't watch them too much dance you the vertical passing game you saw that on the throat of Gallup at the end of the game when you needed a play that was a tremendous reading program and adult and they showed him to High coverage. They spotted two age Hai. He saw the signal coverage of Galilee through a great deep-ball so you could still run the bulk of your Elf and she had made so it's not a full-on panic situation. I think if you're doubtless because of all of the song How did circumstances regarding this division right now? You can still run your offense and Main competitor with
New Generation Of D.C. Statehood Advocates
"On a recent evening about sixty young people in their late teens and early twenties log into a zoom meeting. They live all over the country from new. Jersey to California but they're committed to the cause the organizers start introducing themselves I everyone. My name is Jen Mandel black. I'm Michael I use he him pronouns. Hi Everyone. My name is Jimmy the advocates on this call are preparing to meet with their US senators virtually of course to talk making Washington DC The fifty first state organizer Michael Copy says statehood is one of the key civil rights issues of our time over seven hundred thousand DC residents most of whom are black and Brown folks do not have access. To be the very democracy that surround sound, this big statehood energy is relatively new as recently as a decade ago, statehood was seen as a political dead end Democrats in Congress generally supported it but they didn't make the legislative priority even when they had the chance seventy, nine year old niece Jenkins started advocating for statehood in the late nineteen, ninety s we are the old school we are the gangsters. Of the statehood movement, the Oh Geez back then DC was still struggling to get on solid financial footing statehood did not go over. Well, we were Kinda ridiculed for DC, statehood was not on anybody's limps, grassroots, activists and officials like DC Mayor Mariel Browser made it a priority in this hyper partisan time we're living in DC statehood has become a core part of the National Democratic Platform, the House of Representatives the summer passed a bill supporting DC statehood for the first time in history. The next hurdle is getting it through the Senate which advocates hope will soon be controlled by Democrats. A new generation is on board with this 'cause on the recent zoom call twenty, two year old DC resident demi strap man gives her fellow advocate some advice when it comes to preparing to meet with actual elected officials or their staff you have to be confident to not feel like you're invading their space. They are your elected officials. You have the right to speak with them because she's from DC Stratton no senators to lobby herself and the district's one representative to Congress Eleanor. Holmes Norton can't vote on final versions of bills. That's why young advocates today are hyper focused on getting people from outside the district on board with the statehood 'cause I actually grew up in Pennsylvania. So I kind of took my representation for granted before right moved to DC twenty, four year old Noah wills now lives in the district and runs the advocacy group students for DC statehood he's working to expand their chapters at universities side the district he also wants to get university students in. DC. Bought in while they live here and by doing so they're there really are gateway to the rest of the country wheels and other statehood advocates still have a lot of convincing to do last year in a Gallup poll less than a third of Americans said, they favor d. c. becoming a state. But after this summer's protests over police brutality, some young advocates WanNa push a angle to the statehood 'cause racial justice twenty, two year old DC native Jamal Holtz, points out. The DC is forty, six percent black retreated a second class citizens, and so these statehood is a civil rights issue. Holt says the black lives matter movement and DC statehood are completely intertwined for the first time in his life. He feels like statehood is possible if Democrats take the White House. And Senate and make it a priority. He grew up wanting to be the mayor of Washington DC, and now he's already thinking about adjusting that dream. It'll give me a new goal in life and not limit myself the mayor but make it governor for Wam you I'm Michaela. FRAC to
Americans are saving more right now
"From. scare federal agency. The Bureau of Economic Analysis. On Americans saving money. During Corona virus is part of this. K- recovery were in. There are people that. Can't even put food on the table right now and can't pay basic bills and then others who have stayed employed their job spent been secure. Who are not spending money like they normally would. And or saving money in ways they never thought they could never have in the past. So the latest data does not cover August, it covers July it's you know a trailing indicator, but the average American right now is saving eighteen cents of every dollar they make. You take those that if you call the heard to people that are not worried about their paychecks staying employed, they're saving substantially more than that is a percent of their pay. Because you got to cut out the people who can't save anything right now. So the savings rate is extraordinarily we hit a peak in April when so many jurisdictions around the country were in lockdown where Americans on average saved thirty, three cents of every dollar they made putting us for the first time ever. In. A savings category with people across Asia who in Asia historically. People for every equivalent of a dollar, they make save a third of it. and. But for us very unusual, we've had times this century we're Americans have been negative net savers. Spending more than they actually make on average for the average American right now, saving a substantial amount of money. Now. There's a survey done by Gallup polling. That found that of Americans that are saving their money. They are overwhelmingly. Putting them in zero interest. Checking accounts are extremely low interest savings accounts. Now. That is terrible for the individual saving money because they're earning nothing on it. was great as they have that money. And it means when we get to the point. In twenty. One. When, we got the TRIFECTA. Of better treatments, better testing and a vaccine that steadily will spread through the population. The people that are reluctant to go out. And do things. And spend money and all the rest. Will have this huge reserve of money that will help the recovery in the economy for those that are suffering. So the parts of the economy that are pretty much dead in the water right now will be able to reemerge and the people who've saved so much money will be in a position to have a ready supply of funds to go resume activities. They've deferred. Air travel they didn't take vacations. They didn't do a events. They didn't attend that once we get. What I call the TRIFECTA of public health. Testing treatment and vaccines when we get those things going. That's when you'll see the economy be able to recover. One thing that is clear with these people who WHO HAVE MONEY that they've not had in the past? On the positive side paying down debt and a big way. Is Far as investing. There's been a lot of fear. Among people that are living on less than what they make using the money that they're building up to invest, and that's okay. You want to be able to sleep well at night and earning zero on your money, but knowing the money safe. Is a rational decision. You can make particularly with the market that is very heavily valued right now.

Black Gun Ownership Rises Amid Pandemic, Protests For Racial Justice
"A record number of Americans have purchased guns this year including Black Americans from K. N. UNC in northern Colorado Lee. Patterson reports that incidents of violence against people of color have pushed some to purchase guns for the very first time and warning to our listeners. There are sounds of gunfire in this story. What type of gun is? So this is a Smith and Wesson nine millimeter shield cat trailer bought her handgun this past spring these as she practices at an indoor range with her husband like it's no big deal. But talking through her mask trailer describes how she felt the first time she pulled the trigger is beyond terrified shaking. Hands were sweaty. Trailer is a democratic political consultant who lives in Colorado. At first, she was nervous cleaning and shooting her new gun. And she had a bad experience, the first range she went to she says people were staring she felt unwelcome. Still regardless of the anxiety I had around. All those things. I got into this because I feel like it was necessarily trailer I started thinking about buying a gun when she saw empty grocery store shelves at the beginning of the pandemic. Then she watched racial justice protests unfold across the country. She started thinking about pushback from people who disagree with those efforts if it looks like communities, of Color and people that support communities of color are rising up against white supremacy that could be a problem for us is. It's probably time probably time for them to buy guns a thought that many other Americans have also had in. August. Alone people bought one point eight million firearms according to industry estimates a trade group called the National Shooting Sports Foundation reports the gun sales to customers have grown more percentage wise than for any other racial or ethnic group. With. Her New gun trailer wants to feel like she has a chance during a home invasion or an encounter with police. What we as the family had to determine is, how do we WANNA die? Instead of look at it that way. DO WE WANNA die not being prepared or at least trying to protect ourselves. That's how you weigh that as part of becoming a new gun owner trailer joined the National African American Gun Association Philip Smith is the founder nationally across the board from all over every state. We have people joining all times a day night. You know I I thought something was wrong with computer. Smith was watching membership numbers rise after the death of George Floyd may but black people have been using guns for hunting and protection for a long time historian say that Harriet Tubman carried firearms so did the Black Panthers in the nineteen sixties these days according to a Gallup poll released last year nineteen percent of black people own guns. Smith says his members are not monolithic. Some women join because they've been sexually assaulted some women join because they wanNA teach you some men join because they want to just get really good at self defense people are joining now for different. Reasons some want to support the National African American Gun Association Financially Smith says for others it's more spiritual I. Think people were looking for a home a place where you can kind of event you can belong where you felt your mind having a relief of some sort Bruce Tomlin a truck driver who lives in New Mexico describes his decision to buy a gun response to stress. I'll just say amounting society He felt that way after watching cellphone video showing the death of Ahmad arbitrary a black man who was shot while jogging through neighborhood in Georgia earlier this year don't. Go around arm the rest of my life. That's because he's been feeling under attack for years after the two thousand, twelve killings of Trayvon Martin, for example, and after the mass shooting at a black church in Charleston in two thousand, fifteen by a white supremacist goes like I can just be mine them all business. And if somebody who's a racist, just decide to roll up on me gun meet down. As is decided that like if I go out I'M GONNA go out shooting back. But now that he's an actual gun owner, it's not so straightforward day to day of feel like I can defend myself better defend my loved ones. But I usually get comfortable having it sometime he does not want to kill or injure anyone open carry makes them nervous I would never take my gone to the grocery store and carry around inside or anything like that. But on the other hand I could be in a situation where needed still out in the car or whatever I just like knowing that I have it gun ownership is complicated for Tomlin especially because he's black if he was stopped by police says, he probably wouldn't tell them that he had a gun. And catch trailer says the same thing giving the example of philander casteel he was shot during a traffic stop for years ago in Minnesota after telling an officer that he had a firearm, his car casteel did have a permit to carry it. Cat Trailer believes that gun cost him his life we're not given a fair shake when these conversations are happening automatically worsen tensions are assumed just because we're black, we're gun owners for both of these new black gun owners. It's an identity that comes with risks, but does make them feel safer for
David Blaine: Daredevil takes flight with helium-filled balloons
"Illusionist David Blaine says he didn't have control of anything for his latest stunt that took him very high into the Arizona sky. Yesterday. 80 sees Matt Gutman reports took 52 giant helium balloons to get him up and gravity to bring David Blaine back down to the Arizona desert floor. In his first major life event in nearly a decade, the illusionist soaring more than 4.5 miles in the air, hosted by all those balloons. It was a scene lifted right out of the beloved kids movie on blame, dedicating the feed to his own kid, nine year old Desa, who was right there by his side as he took off and as he floated off into the stratosphere, the temperature dropping into the single digits, the air dangerously thin, available oxygen on lied about Half the amount at sea level, putting him in a serious risk. High poxy is when you don't get enough oxygen because you go to high. You have no idea what you're doing is you're completely five. It's like you're drunk, and as he keeps climbing, Blaine is communicating with his ground team. Including Desa anything up. Um Or it's 16,000 now. We're probably gonna go up. Where the airplanes go, and as he climbs to nearly a jets cruising altitude, the oxygen shortage hits it's 95 blamed, finally pulling his oxygen tank out trying to get his wits about him for the most dangerous part yet coming back down, Finally, almost an hour after he took off as you reaches 24,900 ft, he gets the signal. Releases the safety and plummets at over 125 miles an hour for minutes straight, he free falls towards the earth, then pulls that parachute cord came down in a Gallup almost deliriously happy. And for the flight back to go see his daughter Desa. This time he took a helicopter that was actually beautiful. Top to bottom. K. Ken's a professional skydiver who helped blame prepare and talked him through it while he was in the air, revealing just how hard it was to get this right on event that requires whether to be bright wind has to be perfect. Everything has to line up. There's no stopping start. It's all live for everyone to see such an incredibly complex stunt and made more so because so much could go wrong and was complicated by the fact that originally Blaine apparently wanted to try it without a parachute, but the basic idea of a human grabbing a bunch of balloons and floating right off into space. Well, that just made for an uplifting

His Digital Marketing Agency is focused on getting people, new clients, new leads through Google ads, facebook ads, Lincoln, facebook Instagram, you name it. This is why I'm so excited to have him here today as a guest teacher because we're GONNA get some. Free Consulting. This is a really good lesson on the importance of paid advertising right now in growing your business. Even if you have a small budget that small budget can go a long way right now and you should not miss this opportunity tyler Jordan's GonNa, teach you pass it onto him. Now, we'll be back with my takeaways to wrap up the episode, but for now, takeaway? Tyler Everyone, this is tyler. Over Jordan digital marketing. We've put together a six point plan for how to run paid acquisition marketing. Even in the midst of pandemic, the world has profoundly changed over the last two months. People are staying home at a drastically higher rate even as things start to open up even with restrictions being lifted fewer people are going to go out pure people are going to restaurants a lot fewer people are going to be commuting twitter square are two of the biggest companies to announce new work from home policies that. Allow people to work from home indefinitely in a recent Gallup poll more than fifty percent of Americans said they'd like to continue to work from home even after the restrictions are lifted, that means fewer people commuting, which means fewer people listening to radio listening to streaming services, seeing billboards or out of home media. So outdoor marketing opportunities have all but dried up, but it also means that there's a ton more people sitting in their houses searching and scrolling all day long in front of their computers. This leaves a huge opportunity for those who. Are Willing to take it. We've seen massive pullbacks and marking spin, but the people who have stayed the course with their digital spend are seeing major benefits. We've put together a six point plan to explain how you can restart or improve on your current paid marketing strategies. The first point businesses down right now, but it's not going to be gone forever this also down for everyone a lot of people have pulled spin really dramatically if you have the money to continue advertising, this is the time for you to take over your space. Even if your product is dependent on people being out and about you can spend this time to position yourself for the rebound when business comes back those who spend the time and money to stay in front of people right now will continue to be in their consideration set those who poll their marketing will be lost and forgotten, and right now CPM's CPC's are at all time lows in March. The average see pm in the United States fellow three dollars for the first time in two years and the lowest amount globally ever they've increased. About four dollars since then but that's still thirty percent cheaper than what they were towards the end of February. The second point think about the channels you running billboard. Or dead print is struggling in has been struggling for a while TV is hot right now because everybody's took it home and digital is is pure fire right now even as things open up their millions of more people staying home and scrolling their timelines searching from their phones than normal, we're getting finally to see the true capability of the Internet during his time, which is weirdly exciting. NETFLIX's who lives social feeds and Youtube are quickly becoming the go-to entertainment sources for the vast majority of America. If your business typically relies on out of home media or events, look into Ott, youtube bands, and think about runs video on facebook. The third point we'd like to make is think about Tom don't forget the situation that people are facing right now but also try not to be overly cliche. The number of companies that are talking about navigating these uncertain times ridden risen by an astronomical amount you need to care and be mindful of the situation, but don't default to being too scared to have a real message. Make sure you're still telling people who you are and what you do if you can share the story of how your business is helping in the. Current situation or how the company is making changes to ensure that things remain safe when life goes back to normal the goal here is to remain top of mind for your ideal customer segment because if you don't someone else will we have an education based client advertising Kobe coming resources guide as a way to fill the top of the funnel for when their program starts. Gets back to normal. They're gonNA have thousands of new leads in their crm that they can go and attack right away they in cost relieves right now dropped to less than half of their normal rate, and while they're not converting any users right now, they're perfectly set up for the rebound. The fourth point, the noise has been cleared out. CPM's are lower than ever, but that's because no one else has advertising. So that means you have an opportunity to own the conversation personally I've only seen masterclass ads on youtube for like the last two months and I, actually finally just signed up to learn how to cook Mexican food. David able to own the airwaves because so many people have been scared and pulled out of the market. We've seen this sort of result, a lot of times from companies that we work with two. We've seen one of our fintech clients had a sixty five percent increase in conversions with only a thirty, five percent increase in spend on their top competitor campaigns during lockdown their competition pulled back and they stayed strong and stay true to their paid strategy, and they're reaping the benefits for another client of ours has been able to see a sixty one point five percent jump in numbering conversions even after social distancing quarantining started to happen, they've only increased spend about forty six percent. Outside jump in nombre and conversions, versus the spend they put forward simply because there's fewer people in the space another client was able to see a sixty one percents jump in non brand conversions after stay home orders and social distancing. They've only put together a forty five percent increase in spencer seeing outside his jump in overall conversions. The benefit here is that the audience that you're getting in front of right now is one that has more time on his hand and his testing out more tools during their downtime. So people who are getting in front of them are having an opportunity to get leads that maybe wouldn't be so to jump on a demo or get on a call with you. But if you're able to continue to spend that money and own your niche, you have a really unique opportunity to get in front of more of the right people and it might not pay off right now but it will pay off when business starts to get back to normal. And this brings us to our fifth point people are shopping around dramatically more people have more time on their hands. Money needs a stretch further. So people are taking the time to test out multiple different tools whereas they used to just focus in on one and do the easiest thing we're seeing a lot of people sign up for leads, download content and request demos in the SAS face embedded these space, and it's our job to go capture that interest. We're also seeing a lot of people buying a lot more on e commerce sites because they're stuck at home and they need fix their shopping addiction anyway. So we're seeing a lot of huge increases in ECON sector as well. If you're running an ECOMMERCE site, the best place for you to go and find that traffic and convert those users is GonNa be through digital through search social and display. So make sure that you're getting out there in front of people with the right message and using right audience the sixth and. Final point is one that we harp on regularly all of our audits and that's you need to speak to people at different stages of the funnel. Differently this is important at all times the year but especially right now, make sure that you're using the right tone to introduce yourself to new customers be a little bit more mindful of the situation those interactions but once you've introduced yourself, make sure that you let them know why you're different and why they should go with you over the other companies are shopping around with. Once they become accustomed to make sure that you asked her promote you to their friends. One of the big ways that people find business normally is they ask their friends recommendations. So if you can facilitate that with paid marketing that'll put you in a position right now with all your new customers that you bring in today to really allow that to snowball on top of itself. Once the economy starts and things start to get back to normal.

Despite Widespread Pain, Economy Remains Strong Selling Point For Trump
"The president's approval rating remains low. He gets higher marks on the economy than other issues. That's true. Even now with almost thirty million people collecting unemployment benefits as Republicans focus on opportunity at they're convention the economy remains. One of the president's strongest selling points. NPR's Scott horsely reports. It takes a certain amount of Hooda campaign on your economic record when the unemployment rate is in double digits but that's exactly what president trump's been doing. You see the kind of numbers that were putting up there unbelievable best job numbers ever three months more jobs in the last three months before in boasting about the big job gains in May June and July trump conveniently omits the historic job losses. In March and April so far the US has recovered less than half the jobs that disappeared this spring this morning new numbers showing the worst unemployment rate since the Great Depression a staggering number and the worst since the Great Depression worse than anything we have seen since the Great Depression ordinarily a recession like this would be crippling for a president seeking reelection look at what happened to George H W Bush back in Nineteen ninety-two despite his popularity after winning the first Gulf, War Bush's economic approval rating plummeted to just eighteen percent during what was in hindsight a relatively mild recession unemployment that year peaked at seven point eight percent but that was enough to send the president packing. That famous line from Bill, Clinton's adviser James Carville doesn't seem to apply to trump the president's economic approval rating has slipped since the beginning of the year, but it still hovering near fifty percent. So what's going on what's going on is the memory of the economy before the pandemic Republican pollster with air says, many Americans are still judging trump on the economy as it was six months ago before the coronavirus took hold here, it was rolling unemployment was at historic lows. The economy was in great shape before the pandemic killed it presidential approval ratings in general don't swing up or down as much as they used to as Americans have become more locked into rigid partisan attitudes. But Gallup's Lydia Saad also suspects many people are giving trump a pass. When it comes to the economic downturn, they're more concerned about the pandemic NC the economy is just a temporary symptom. SORTA like a hurricane something that's happened is come in it's created all kinds of havoc. But it's going to go away to get back to normal. That's how Mark Schneider sees it. He retired from the Navy after twenty years on nuclear submarines, and now runs an advocacy group for nuclear power. Last week, the S. and P. Five, hundred stock index was heading for a record high Schneider tweeted that the trump economy is unstoppable. The recession he says will soon pass but just steals temporary. Pause Kinda, paused economy as opposed to something mucking the system as he drives around his home of Chesapeake in South Eastern Virginia Schneider is confident that a lot of people feel the same way I? have yet to see a single biden sign in my entire city. I haven't seen a bumper sticker seen anything by him, but there's trump flag flying everywhere. My forecast is, is that trump's gonNA take a single landslide airs the GOP pollster is not so certain despite trump's solid grade on the economy air says, it may not be enough to save the president come November, the corona virus has driven out. Everything else trump's overall approval rating is considerably lower than his economic marks weighed down in part by his handling of the pandemic until there's a solution for the corona virus air says, it's going to be difficult for the economy to come roaring back.
What NLP Tells Us About COVID-19 and Mental Health with Johannes Eichstaedt
"I am here with Yohannes Istat Yohannes is an assistant professor of psychology at Stanford University. Yohannes. Welcome. To the WII podcast. Thank you pleasure to be here. I'm really looking forward to this conversation. I think we learned about some of your research in the context of a presentation you did at the recent Forum. That was held by the human centered AI institute at Stanford and we're looking forward to digging into that. But before we do I'd love to hear a little bit about your background and how you came to work in a computational psychology computational social science. Yeah. Sure it's a it's a new field. I was a physicist by training many years ago. Okay and at some point decided that I. Cared more about people than I did about particles. Made A. Very Long career transitions for. Psychology into the social sciences and about ten years ago started out in started carving out in area that intersects big data machine learning with computational questions psychology and just straight up psychology questions. So for example, can be predict the heart disease risk of areas using twitter, and do the psychological predictors that we pull out from the twitter language correspond to what we know about heart disease. Can we better understand depression I mean looking at what language that people use precedes the first diagnosis of depression in the medical records so It's been really fun I. Mean I've been really enjoying IT A. Because of the physics he background I'm more matthew perhaps than some other psychologists and so I'm I'm on the sort of computational psychology side, and then there are psychological computer scientists with which interface whether we have the critical expertise across domains to actually find new stuff. Teredo. New Solutions Interesting. You're saying it is most of your work involve doing analysis of texts from social media context in drawn conclusions from that. It tends to be taxed yet tends to be extended tends to be a social media in generally all text data sets of fair game. So we've we've also used transcripts. Of therapy directions where speeches were autobiographical writing to writing prompts, but the beauty of social media data is that you're so highly powered because of the size of these data sets. That you can really use sort of deeper machine learning methods and you also have. Such high statistical power that for feature exploration for finding things like associated language patterns you have the power to discover these unexpected associations and you use you need to be order in the the thousands of people in these data sets and social media easiest source of data for those kinds of analyses. And there are other advantages disadvantages of using social. Did I could talk about sir? Okay. So at Advantages is. So you in compared to other psychological research, you don't ask people to get off the couch and Philo. Right. You don't knock on their door and you also don't intrude into their mental processes with some question in principle, right in an ideal world it's an a kind of ecological assessment. It's people that are in digital spaces they're behaving as they normally would with their friends with with hero needs with a right there just being themselves and you sort of as there are sitting around their digital campfire, you sort of listening Ed scale with their permission of course, and so there's this notion that it's unobtrusive for some psychological processes can be can be quite nice. One of the major disadvantages is that you have certain kinds of distortions in the social media signal. You have sampling biases. Certain populations are just not as represented. But that's getting less and less at it was never that big of a concern to begin with. So. For example, the median age in twitter five years different than the median age of the US population and you know people always say how you how can you make a population estimate based on twitter? You know I'm not on twitter. But you're also not in a representative survey, the vast majority of the time. Right. So in Gallup, poll polls a thousand people to get a national estimate of how people feel about trump or but they will being as you're also not in that survey. Right, and so when we have five million users on twitter and we can estimate the demographics and age that we can post, ratify these samples to represent the population actually much better. Than Your thousand person representatives obey rate and so does that make sense the sampling bias things? I think we've tackled it now we've. Beat the dead horse many times enough that that. People are coming around the the other thing or the other main concern is that the people social desirability bias that people are putting on facebook social media. I was GONNA ask about that right An advantage is that you're observing people being themselves, but often people aren't being themselves they're being their twitter self. Twitter or or their facebook south right? That's. Sometimes those are different selves. Yeah that's true and so we've we've tried to characterize a little over the years and it seems like what's really happening is not so much. So particular on platforms like Facebook, your facebook graph, the people you're connected with on facebook are the people who know you. So there's a certain element of just keeping you within the bounds of who you are roughly as a person that would just otherwise just seeming congressmens. But we have seen however is that people tend to suppress statements they not feeling well. Along. Two dimensions the I mentioned is sort of when they're sad depressed. In the other one is if there if they experienced families than life, which is part of the problem of these sort of comparative processes on Social Media, for certain groups in particular that you're comparing your normal life to somebody else's highlight reel. And that's certainly the case. So if you think about American culture more generally. I think there's two foundation myth that sort of Guy American social norms. The one is sort of positivity bias sort of suit of happiness style set of legends and myth and norms and archetypes. And then the second one is A. Protestant work ethic. which is that it's good to be successful and that successful people are somehow morally righteous or morally praiseworthy.

Car dealerships are reopening and the pivot to in-person sales has begun
"That was area of the economy. It had been so stuck in the past. That changed radically in quickly because a corona virus is the car market. People very heavily pivoted to negotiating shopping negotiating and buying vehicles online, doing touch list delivery of new vehicle something that had never been. Part of the car business and of businesses that people really have historically not trusted. The car businesses it I mean this is. This is pitiful, and it does not square with the people I've met in the business. But a new Gallup poll. Finds that just nine percent of Americans. Said car sales people are. And Ethical. And that puts. Car sales people at the lowest level of trust, even below members of the US Congress. So. This is a business that has very little trust from consumers. And so people really liked. Buying vehicles with no pressure and buying them online. Well now as states have open back up. Bloomberg reports that car dealers. Trying to discontinue. The online access, not all dealers, but many trying to discontinue the online access and get people. In their stores. They have huge. Investments in those stores. And there's a lot of expense building. Those fancy two story show rooms there so. elegant now they've got the snack bars and all the things they have in those fancy show rooms and. If I'm a dealer and I spent all that money. I've done it because. It's a prophet machine. When you get people in there a lot of times, people will come in, and they'll drive away in a new vehicle. They didn't even have an intention. A buying met day and they don't comparison shop. So, it's been really terrible for dealers. With all the comparison shopping that people are doing now online. They're also buying less or known as packed. Add on charges buying online so. Dealers are realizing that they are able to squeeze more revenue out of every sale. Even with the higher overhead having people come in, and you're going to have dealers trying to lure you. Back into coming in before they talk to you about price or particulars. What I will encourage you to do is understand. Their incentive is different than yours. If you want to get the best deal without having the hassle. You WanNa. Do Your shopping online. You WanNa. Do your negotiating with multiple dealers, online or US one of the car buying process I've talked about, and if you look what's happening with the US vehicle market people under age thirty five. have no interest in going to a used car lot of a new car dealer going to a used car place or anything like that. They want to do it right on their phone. And, that's how car-o-van and and broom hit become players in the market and Carmax the nation's largest used car seller. has very heavily invested in having an online platform where people can buy a vehicle that way you know. A lot of dealers did it out in assessment because no one was buying. If, they had to come because a lot of states. You couldn't go to a dealer showroom. Because a corona virus earlier this year, but now. A lot of people once they've experienced how fantastic it is buying online! Or learning something from. been doing that for a while. And I hope that. When you are shopping for a vehicle, you'll follow my guidelines that I have at Clark Dot com on how you do it and get the best price and be very careful. Going to the dealer to make a deal, because if you want the best deal, it's going to be shopping online.
The remarkable collapse of Donald Trump's polling numbers
"Morning so just a few things happening global pandemic demands for racial justice debates about police brutality there is so much uncertainty however how is all of this affecting the race yeah it's it's affected it in a really big way you have seen a major decline in president trump's approval ratings he dropped ten points from month to month in the latest Gallup surveys down to thirty nine percent our own polling last week found that two thirds of the country thinks that he's made race relations worse that's a big part of it and at the same time former vice president Joe Biden has substantial leads in a lot of polls many of them ten point leads are more in what's different from the leaves that Hillary Clinton had twenty sixteen over Donald Trump is that Joe Biden is above fifty percent in a lot of these polls it makes it much more durable so clearly a lot of voters right now are looking at how president trump is handling all these crises and not liking what they're seeing so president trump is not liking what he is seeing in those poll numbers he's made that apparent on Twitter what's actually doing to try to reverse those trends he's been focusing a lot on what he says is a recovery from the corona virus pointing to last week's job reports that showed some jobs are returning of course cases are still rising in twenty states including Texas that's where the president is traveling today to do a recovery focused event at a Dallas church in addition to a fundraiser he's also doing in Texas the president is also going to start resuming those big campaign rallies they've been on hold since March but next week in Oklahoma he'll hold his first one that's a state that had not been hit as hard by Kobe nineteen it'd open reopen pretty quickly but listen to the president laid out his rally schedule here that we're gonna be coming into Florida do a big one in Florida one in Texas they're all going to be big we're going to Arizona going to North Carolina thirty appropriate time I mean that tells you that the problems he's having right there the fact that he has to campaign in Arizona the fact that he has to campaign in Texas these are states where Joe Biden has a lead or is close and and Democrats have not won in a very very long time and a big problem the president has politically it's just a big a rotation of independent voters who are turned off by his divisive approach it rather than shifting his tone to try and win them back he's often going in the opposite direction the campaign has ads mocking protests that are being seen favorably by large chunks of the country and yesterday president trump said he would block efforts to rename military bases that are named after Confederate generals this is on a day that NASCAR banned Confederate flags at

"Those things help so so so much but anyway on a national level when you hear people people talk about various rosters in the NFL rosters like the Philadelphia Eagles for example. It's all man. There's so much depth there. They really know how to you know how he roseman. Roseman has built a monster in they have depth everywhere. They can sustain an injury to any position and they'll be fine because they have all this debt. They've moneyball the NFL and look to be clear. We are actually the Philadelphia. Eagles need a lot of depth right now because they are up at creek when it comes to their injuries and you know from an injury perspective we don't ever want anybody could get her. It's a hopefully the eagles are are getting all soon. Just like Michael Gadgets like Ben Rothlisberger interests like drew brees so we'll get to in a second but the cowboys back in January brought brought in Devon Smith and those are the types of moves when you hear you know y when the Philadelphia Eagles Traded Timmy Jernigan you know when the you you know you can cope with another example. If you want obviously in this particular moment I'm coming up dry. that's the one. I can think of but people always praise those oh sorts of moves to give a team death for situations because you never know. I think another one you know and I'm not trying to knock the eagles. They really are actually very good at this but it's just over hyped to a ridiculous degree you think about when they won the super bowl trading for JJ. Obviously look at blunt. I mean they had depth which is why they were able to survive. Nick foles is one of the best examples of that but landing Devon Smith of the Dallas cowboys allows them to sustain a loss like Michael Galp and is David Smith GonNa come in and lead the NFL. I found receiving arts no but we saw in Washington. We've seen really all throughout training camp and the preseason up through two weeks through the season Devon. Smith is a viable outside receiver seaver option. I mean that's a really true thin for the cowboys right now and by the way just a little bit of something to make you smile. Devon Smith prior to join the cowboys aloys played in fourteen games with the New York jets the jets who got destroyed on Monday night football okay in those fourteen games. He caught one touchdown that one touchdown touchdown for Devon Smith came against the Miami Dolphins and whose Devon Smith going to see a legitimate amount of playing time against who's that who who who oh yeah the Miami Dolphins. I'm just saying these are facts. Look the cowboys have have planned for this. I mean you don't you don't plan for injuries. You know what I mean like you. Don't hope for that but the cowboys have properly prepared for emergency you know they they have a bunker. COBB is up got to go to the bunker you hungry. We've got several cans beans. We've got you know you need to plug your phone and we've got several. You know several places several batters. We've got all sorts of things. We've got several generators. We can handle anything and so Michael. Galvin gone is certainly not ideal but it is far from the end of the world for the cowboys cowboys and so you look at in from an aerial weapon perspective the cowboy still have Amari cooper still randall Cobb obvious tonight he got Devon Smith Cedrick Wilson likes likely hangs around for the fifty three man roster until Michael Gallup comes back Austin Still Concussion Protocol Corner Jason Gary and then you've got Jason Win Blake Darwin and we still haven't really seen shouts. Oh and you got in Tony Pollard so not ideal again but certainly far from something that really panic about and by the way so the report is that Michael Gallup could miss two to four weeks okay. These are the cowboys next five weeks before their are by their on a bye in week eight. We are now in week three so week three. They host the Miami Dolphins Week four there will be at the New Orleans saints again. We'll talk about that and a little bit we five. We'll we'll be back at home for a contest against the Green Bay packers. We six. They traveled to take on the New York jets in case. You haven't heard me say it several times already. The New York jets got destroyed Monday night football aw and then week seven the cowboys will be at home for Sunday night football game. I've already mentioned this several times games on my birthday October twentieth if you want to you know Water Burger Gift Card. I don't know whatever but anyway then after that eagles game they're on their by the point here is they have five games before the by Michael. Gallup is supposed to miss somewhere between two four weeks. Let's let's be hypothetical right. Let's assume it is four weeks okay. Let's assume that Michael Gallup Mrs four weeks so so you're telling me that the cowboys would be in a situation where they would be facing that game against the Eagles at home mind you and then they're on their by. I know this. I know you're probably going to say no way wherever you are but there is a legitimate argument to be made that you rest Michael Gallup Gallup because if you rest him there the new given the bye week and then he does not have to come back for you until Monday night football in November when the cowboys visit the New York giants and that will you don't take any chances you're super cautious because obviously you know I mean we're going to talk about this but obviously the the next five games of the cowboys always look favorable majority standpoint and so if the cowboys are entering week seven sitting on five wins six wins as a lot of people think who are going to go seven and no. I mean if they're sitting on even four wins. I think you you seriously consider resting Michael Galvin a lot of this would have to do with how the offense has looked at the time has Devon Smith shown up cedrick Wilson shown up. It's Amari Cooper. Just carrying you is equally running things. I mean so much of it is unknown but my point is. I think there's a possibility that we do not see my whole Gallup until after the bye and if if you think that's crazy think back to now what is two years ago okay now three years ago. Excuse me my math is off which never happens but three years ago. DAKYNS Zeke's rookie year remember that Dez Bryant got hurt in week three when the cowboys beat the Chicago bears I I did again. I know people have asked me to stop but when the cavs beat the bears in a week three Dak Prescott threw his first career touchdown the Dez Bryant Okay and does got hurt and had to miss time him and the cowboys went to Green Bay that year in in two thousand sixteen and they went to Green Bay the week before there by and Dez was just about ready to to come back but the cowboys who were riding high only had one loss point which is a season opener the they made a gamble. They said you know what we're going to go to Green Bay. We trust this offense. We trust what they can do. We're going to try to beat the packers without Dez Bryant and we'll give him the bye week to rest up and guess what they did. He got well. He came back. He still played really well. Obviously you know had some great moments throughout the rest of two thousand sixteen certainly the the game in Pittsburgh and some of the things past that but the point is that I believe it's very possible contingent on a lot of things mind you but it's very possible that we don't see Michael Gallup until after the bye and that would not be a bad thing. I promise you'll feel better about it. As time goes on because the cowboys have a really favorable schedule coming up but speaking of let's let's take a break and then we'll talk about kind of what's coming up and drew brees and everything so here it is a quick break to hear award from our sponsors with epic first week of football behind us..
