"Huge, huge field. Because having been a former federal agent myself when the president says something, it becomes a national priority. At national priority determines the allocation of resource is so if you happen to be an FBI agent in some counterterrorism section, and you air quotes mistakenly believed that we should be investigating Al Qaeda and Isis, Isis, and now you've been told that you should subordinate that investigation. Two investigations of white supremacist you can't seem to find then you're gonna waste a whole lot of time hardship, while Isis and Al Qaeda are laughing all the way to their next terror attack.

The Perfect First Business
"Your first business can be scary intimidating nerve wracking and frankly just risky. There's so much you don't know yet because you just don't have the experience under your belt so it's really important for you. To mitigate that risk too many first time entrepreneurs shoot for the stars they start like a software company requires a lot of town a lot of engineers a lot of funding or they get into e commerce and they wanna sell physical goods and items in their ecommerce store which requires inventory storage tons of technology and a lot of customer headaches. How do i know this well. I have a software company webinar. Ninjas i mentioned before i had an ecommerce store was in retail. I had my own clothing line Over a decade ago. But i also had another type of business that really allowed me to build my other businesses and that's a service based business services any kind of business that offers a service advice expertise to customers. Let me give you an example of base business and will run with this example throughout the lesson because this is an actual real example. That i did. This is actually a business iran. I had a business business republic and it was a service business. It was a consulting firm. And i helped small businesses build and launch new websites and blogs now the great thing about a service based businesses that. You don't need to be the expert but of course if you choose a service that you are good at let's say for example you are a web developer then you can actually start with your own time and talent but it's not required. I started because i knew how to create websites. Resume were press. And i my first few clients using my own time and skill but after time i needed a scale i couldn't just do all the work myself and i actually found out that it actually makes more business sense for me not to do the work. If i were to do this business all over again. I would do just that. I would not be doing any of the actual skilled labor. So how does this work. Well let's say for example. You are charging two thousand dollars for somebody to create you a brand new blog a brand new website. This is very inexpensive. But let's just say this is where you're starting all you need to do to make a profit is to actually get it done for less. This means you can hire on upward for example people that can do the job. They can create websites in this example for you and you just be the facilitator you pass on the work to them now professionals that know what they're doing can create these things quite quickly if they're given the right information. That's where your job comes in is giving the information from the customer. What are the needs of their wants. What's our business. Lie grabbing their logo garner images Getting the copy so that we can then give it to the developer and they can load it all up and create that website. You can easily find really talented Website developers in this example for like five hundred dollars a website and you can easily charge two thousand or more when i was outsourcing it. I was charging around five thousand dollars a website. I had a full time freelance contractor. Who agreed that. He's going to do each website for five hundred dollars. And i gave plenty of work and he was working on three to four websites at a time. Yes i made a ten x profit on each project. now what's great about. Having a service based business is that you can scale this thing in your own time in your own speed. Meaning that if you don't have that many clients that's okay. You're still making a profit because you're charging somebody else to do the work per project per client and you're making a profit on each transaction and as you get more clients grow you will continue to make more profit and it becomes even more profitable and all you have to do is be the person that markets that cells that takes care of the customer the actual work the service can be outsourced to somebody else and guess what you can this with up cells and sister offerings do that with logos with business cards. I used to get other people to design them for me. Part of my team. And i would even like kind of Approved the designs before we get to the The actual customer and again make a profit on each add on each new service. This requires zero overhead from you. While you really need is a website for you to be able to bring customers into your business you only have to pay for somebody to do the work when you have a customer. There's no inventory to keep. There's no software to build or maintain by developers and you're dealing with higher price points meaning thousands of dollars per project rather than customer spending twenty thirty forty fifty dollars on smaller items like ecommerce and dealing with hundreds of customers that complained that won't refunds that have other issues you have less clients and you're making just as much money if not more as you're scaling. This is a really good business. A start with why because it makes you learn a lot of basic skills. You need to succeed in any other business.

How Effective Is The COVAX Scheme?
"The vaccination program in britain is by accounts going extremely well. The country's ordered four hundred and fifty seven million doses of the job or enough to dose the population. Three point six times over. So what happens to the surplus until the world is protected against the virus there is little hope of eradicating karuna. Well this is where the kovacs scheme comes in led by the world health organization it also involves the global vaccine alliance gavi and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations and hopes to deliver more than two billion doses. Two people one hundred ninety countries in less than a year. China and russia are also racing to provide inoculations but is this altruism or a soft power push men will martin is medical innovation and policy advisor at msf's access campaign and joins me on the line. Now man will thanks for coming on. We're seeing this program begins to roll out. Globally garner has become the first to receive vaccinations through kovacs. But how effective is the scheme proving so far. Good morning So so far. It is delivering doses as you save the i also have been delivered to ghana however it is only delivering thus far vaccines of two different manufacturers. One of pfizer and one of his of astrazeneca and so far the numbers are quite limited. It has not yet secured enough doses in binding agreements to come through on. Its promise to deliver two billion doses of kobe. Vaccine's towards partners people are countries that are participating in colfax and also. Another big problem is that it's been incredibly transparent about the way that it signs deals. We don't know the prices that have been paid for these vaccines and we also don't know what what kind of concessions these agreements have come between. Gabby which is negotiating partner. Go backs and pharmaceutical industry. Who's at fault. Here is rich. Western countries hoarding or the venue vaccine manufacturers themselves. I think it's a bit of both so obviously the country's securing large volumes of doses to vaccinate as you've said multiple times their population is a big part of the problem but the other problem is also that pharmaceutical companies have been willing to sign. These deals when could imagine a different scenario where pharmaceutical companies prioritized deals with the kovacs acidity over signing bilateral deals with countries precisely because it's a pandemic and because global solidarity the only way we're going to get out of this. I mean britain. You have pledged to give their surplus supplies with that plug the hole so far what i have seen has have only been commitments to donate some doses once. They've reached a certain threshold. I think the you is aiming to back. Say seventy percent of its population by summer britain. Somewhere close to seventy five percent. And i mean let's just be clear what that means that means that in these countries low risk young individuals will be back soon aged for many developing countries can even max innate just their healthcare workers in their elderly the truly. They're at risk. The other problem that we're seeing is and is that a vaccine in particular the oxford astrazeneca vaccines that these countries have bought are now sitting around not being used. Because people fear that they're not as effective as they should be so with these stockpiles. Just sitting around. I really fear that they may actually go out of date before there used and that would really be a shame when there's so much need in the developing

"Prescott. Okay, one more does this man have to fucking news his City for his City's football team to say, let's put a ring on it. You're our Jude. So Jack Prescott and Matthew McConaughey paid for homeless people to they basically felt homeless people during this entire Texas shitstorm ice storm that happened here 1000 meals to one of the local homeless shelter slash organizations that are feeding folks and keeping them warm. This is actually like a warming Center slash place for people to come and be fed. Yes, Jack Prescott and Matthew McConaughey joined forces and did this now I get it off. Granted I'm not going to be the asshole. It's like oh, well, if it's not public that means people don't donate not true at all. Who knows who else donated from that organization, but you think it would have leaked somehow right? I'm not going to assume nobody donated but it just doesn't look good publicly when there's other organizations locally on the sports side that are donating. Anyway, my point with that is what the fuck more does Dak Prescott home to do. I'm starting to get really fucking mad. I'm about to go up to the star or Preston Hollow or Highland Park or University Park or actual Cowboys stadium and beat it or down because your girl is fucking pissed at this point. Well, here's what sucks for you Jazz. The one thing have you seen my life since 2020. There's a guy there's a running list. There's a sticker of everything that's wrong with my life.

A leader, but thank you. Amy. We're moving on does not does not mean that he's worth what ever he is trying to Garner from the Cowboys. They're not willing to pay him come at next in offsides. You can be a super nice guy, but it doesn't mean you're worth 4 million dollars a year. I'm unfollowing now on page on Instagram because of that comment.

Republicans support changing Georgia constitution amid Fulton County DA's criminal probe into Trump efforts
"We know the fulton. County district attorney fanny willis is investigating donald trump and lindsey graham for alleged election interference based on calls they made to the secretary of state brad ravensburger and already republicans are seeking to muck up the works georgia state. Republicans introduced a resolution. Thursday that seeks to change the georgia state constitution to mandate the use of a statewide grand jury in prosecutions involving crimes. The move would force prosecutors to draw more grand jurors from predominantly republican rural areas of the state. Let me translate that for you. Republicans don't want black people on the grand jury. That sounds about white. That sounds about white. Alison thank you. You're welcome that they don't want any they don't they. Just want fewer black people in the grand jury that would ultimately decide whether to bring charges against the former guy as we are. Now calling anthony michael crease. A law professor at georgia state specializing in con- lock constitutional on civil rights says quote. This is an attack on black political power if folks engaged and election misconduct and fulton county. Then they should face jurors who looked like members of the community in fulton county subject to the discretion of the decisions by elected officials empowered by fulton voters fulton county. The largest county in georgia's got a population of just over a million people and it also has the largest number of black residents approximately four hundred and forty thousand which accounts for forty three point. Six percent of the county's total population by contrast georgia as a whole has a black population of thirty two point. Six percent quite a difference. But there's some good news here. According to crease. This measure is unlikely to secure the supermajority requirement for state constitutional amendments and would still require voter ratification and even if it garnered the requisite number of votes in the general assembly. There's no way the voters are going to vote for this absolutely not. Twenty-five georgia senate republicans cosponsored the proposal for the amendment georgia's fifty six member. Senate currently has a republican majority of thirty four to twenty two amending. The state's constitution would require a two thirds vote of the senate which would necessitate the vote of at least four. Democrats before heading for ratification from voters. But that doesn't make this effort any less racist. No it's unlikely but super racist
Facial Recognition in Law Enforcement
"One month before the new york times published. The story of robert williamson. Police officers killed. George floyd we all remember the weeks that followed the protests that broke up around. The country garnered tension around the world. It was so engrossing watching those scenes of civil strife that an otherwise remarkable part of the story went almost entirely on the radar in fifteen cities is the department of homeland. Security deployed planes helicopters and drums to watch over the protesters. The aircraft hovered over protesters in new york philadelphia. Detroit feeding customs and border patrol man centers which streamed the intel to police forces and national guard on the ground in minneapolis and the a secret rc. Twenty-six be reconnaissance. Blaine worked with ops on the ground streaming video feeds to an fbi command center in another instance in the top spending in the ficials ordered helicopters to provide quote persistent presence to disperse crowds. He helicopters flew so low to the ground that the sheer downward pressure from their rotor. Blades ripped the signs off of billions. And of course since protesters running this was something out of science fiction full on military intelligence operation on. Us land in later reporting military and government officials insisted that none of the aircraft deployed on protesters were equipped with fisher recognition capabilities in most cases. The aircraft were so high up that facial recognition would be moot. You can't make out face from a blip from nineteen thousand feet but even if some planes flew close enough to capture individual faces be problematic according to the new york times at least two hundred and seventy hours of protests footage was captured by the aircraft and uploaded to big pipe. Dhs network which can be accessed by other law enforcement agencies around the country for future investigations. Video in big pipe can be stored for up to five years. One potential concern then. Is that if a plane recorded. Good enough video. It wouldn't need real time fisher. Recognition on board an agency like the fbi could access that footage weeks or months later to identify individual protesters. It's entirely possible that this hasn't and won't happen but around the country police have already utilized facial recognition to identify and in some cases arrest individual. Blm protesters the extent of it is unknown. Police have no obligation to report on the run. Your face through a machine or concerns me is there's currently no limits at all none at all and so they can also use it to take a look at everybody who is in a peaceful protest of some sort And then take down their names and Hassle him or arrest them or give them trouble in one way or another or simply file them in a database as person of interest. None of which we want to have happen to us. This is ted claypool a lawyer and an author on legal issues surrounding privacy. And a here's one example of what ted means by no limits. Batanes out you can be arrested and not even know that facial recognition played partnered one. Protester less summer oriana albor knows was arrested for throwing rocks at police line. That's definitely a crime but no point in her processing. Did miami police mentioned in documentation to her lawyer or in any other capacity that the used clearview to identify her as the rock thrower. It took an independent investigation by nbc. News to uncover that information and it's important for mission right maybe arena was guilty but he next arena could be a robert williams.
The Controversy Behind the FBA Rollup Strategy
"This is mike and welcome to this edition of the e com crew podcasts. How's it going dave. You make a better mood now. We got the chit chat a little bit and we were making fun of each other so before we even started the podcast. So we were talking about game stock game stock. You're talking about game stock. I was talking about the actual company. Game stop but that was. That was pretty funny. It is like the hardest name to say game stop stock for somebody dyslexic because me is even harder. Yeah there's one that i had to tell you about line. That's inappropriate for the podcast. I let something slip the day and the the warehouse here because there's a there's a tongue twister of products that i miss it. I misspoke was pretty funny. Definitely inappropriate for the For the podcast. There's definitely tongue twisters out there for sure. Yeah there are having a hard one game. Stop stock game. Stop stock in the speaking of crazy investments one of the the craziest investments. These days is people investing in what we do. You know these amazon companies. Because i think that a reality is people on wall street or people with lots of money in places all over the world or looking for ways to put their cash to work in a zero interest rate environment right and the reality is as you can buy an amazon business much like what we do with ice wraps or while baby or off roading gear or color it and get basically a thirty three percent cash on cash return which is a whole lot better than a half a percent interest in your in your bank account and so this is starting to really garner a lot of attention from third party investors out there. Yeah it's crazy. I guess that's kind of topic of this podcast. Are they crazy or the ecommerce owners selling the crazy ones because obviously there's been a huge fan of these roll ups. I was looking at a list. I think about least ten plus with over one hundred million dollars each and capitalization so they have over one hundred million dollars each just to go out and buy e. Commerce businesses specifically amazon businesses is. That seems to be really what they're going after for some reason they've ignored shop stores and like kind of traditional direct to consumer brands which are selling predominantly through their websites and focusing only on these amazon browns. And that's the interesting part i find. Is that the kind of ignoring the great unicorn businesses that we want you and most of our listeners. These websites which don't rely on amazon we want those businesses but the investors seem to amazon only businesses or at least predominantly amazon businesses. I think there's a good reason for that. I want to choose my words carefully here. I think a lot of the has to do with the fact that making money on amazon is kind of easy in a lot of ways. Right i mean again. We never try to make it sound easy and it isn't necessarily easy but on a scale of one to ten or a spectrum of things that you could be doing to make a living is on the easier end you know. There's a lot of things amazon. Takes care of that. You just don't have to think about that. Do make it easier. And you're comparing apples to apples between an amazon business and a direct to consumer shop affi- type store. The amazon one is easier to operate. There's there's no warehouse for you to have because amazon handles that. You don't need to handle returns amazon handles that you need very little customer service. Because amazon handles the bulk of that. You don't need to pick pack and ship. The items amazon handles out and they do it in a way. That is better than you'll ever be
"garner" Discussed on Diane Rehm: On My Mind
"The reds to my hundred haitian with paul butler. He's professor peschiera georgetown university's school of law and author of the book chokehold policing black men so the leave family a barrick garner is satisfied that officer pantaleo no longer has a job with the new york city eddie police force but they say it's not enough. What do they want now diane. There were or at least twelve law enforcement officers and other first responders who were on the scene went. Mr garner was killed. There's now no question that what officer pantaleo did was against the n._y._p._d. Regulations and in fact because of this kinda complicated <hes> new york law when the judge recommended that officer pantaleo be dismissed from the force she had actually find that he committed a crime and so that's what she found. That's why she made her recommendation nonetheless. The only person connect it to the garner case who's gone to jail is ramsey orta the young man who shot the video. He always said that he was scared to show this video but again he felt it was his responsibility as a citizen to shine a light on what the police officers were doing allegedly in our name flat his he in jail. He says that that night after the video was public the n._y._p._d. Cain to his apartment building <hes> they position their car so oh that it's spotlight was shining on the window of the apartment where he lived and he said that was a message to him. Were coming for for you. Mr order like mr garner. You know he'd had some cases. He caught some cases. He had a history with a with drug crimes and the police got him. He says they set him up. They say that they found drugs in his apartment. His mom lived in the apartment as well. The prosecutor said tell you what if you plead guilty to are these drugs. We won't lock your mother up. If you make go to trial <hes> your mom was right here in the apartment with these drugs as well. We're gonna put her in jail as well as you. Mr orta made that deal and so right now. He's in jail what the family says is. There should be criminal consequences <hes> for these officers as well. That ship has sailed again. There's no state h. Charges and no federal charges. I understand that you as congressman jerry. Nadler is thinking about or it is going to hold hearings on possible just slave to strengthen what he calls police kennedy relations. What do you think that you know i think it's important that there be transparency and accountability and all institutions in government and certainly with regard to the police who are literally license to kill alive stood a number of times police have difficult jobs. I don't have the guts the courage to be a police officer. I respect my many friends who do that work but with that responsibility comes accountability and too often with regard to police departments all over the country they don't have that accountability <hes> they're not responsible to the people who they are supposed to serve him protect and so we have this breakdown in relations especially between communities of color and police and so i'm all all for any kind of alfred to transform police departments what president obama said in his commission on twenty first century policing is that to lofton now cops out this warrior mentality where they look at their communities like it's us against them. <hes> what president obama says is. The better model is guardians. Police officers are guardians of the community and if you think about it diane there's a whole different resum a whole different mindset you have if you wanna be a guardian then then if you wanna be a warrior and so in my book choko policing black men i recommend that among other things we need a whole lot more women women cops. It's proven that women officers are less likely to use force including deadly fourth. They're just as effective at fighting crime at catching. The bag is at everything. We want police officers to do but they're able to do that. In a way that involves what we call conflict resolution they talk it out more than take weapons is out that works better county how policing in minority communities differs. There's a lot of mistrust people have different <unk> experiences <hes> one of my buddies who's a police officer here in the district of columbia says that in this very segregated city in some ways they're the identity <unk> white areas and identifiably african american areas when he's in a white area and he sees kids they wave <hes> their experiences that their mom called the officer to get the cat out of the tree when he sees young children and african american communities especially east of the anacostia river were some of the poorer areas in the district of columbia kids run from this officer. They have the experience of you're the guy who who locked up my uncle <hes> you're the guard who rolls by and gives us that heart steer and so lots of tension lots of distrust lots of fear to be quite frank. You know i'm thinking now about these very low income kids in d._c. But last week i had the privilege of being at this really fancy house in sag harbor with a buddy of mine who makes lots and lots of money. He ran a company that it was very successful and now he's retired and he says you know what when i see that cop cars behind me as an african american man heart starts racing. I don't know what's going to happen and so you know sometimes class poverty that makes a difference difference and it certainly does here but there's something really thick about race about blackness and latino keno ness when it comes to interactions with the police and sell even middle income and upper income folks have the same same kinds of concerns that you know our brothers and sisters who are are low income half with regard to cops. What do you think thank. The garner family wants to do going forward. These are people who've become active with this <hes>. I don't think they started out as all that political but they want it. Their husband husband their father their brother they wanted mr garner's death to how some significance <hes> they wanted to push pushback against that lieutenant who when the officers on the scene when mr garner was killed text their boss to say that mr garner had died this lieutenant commander you're in the n._y._p._d. Texted back no big deal. The garner family wants the world role to know is that eric garner's death was a big deal and so they become very important activists from the movement with again tragic results diane you know we've all had experiences with the trauma arma that the death of our loved ones brings erica his daughter named after him. She was the face of the family. Every time there was a news conference and every time the mayor appeared in place to talk about criminal justice before she was there right in his face had a huge presence on social media about one year ago erica garner die. She was a young woman. People say she literally died of a broken heart. Her heart just stopped beating in so this is trauma and you know i think what we all should hope for now is that the work of this family and all the other activists in the movement for black lives and all all the other people of good wheel who are concerned about these issues that that people like mr garner people like sandra bland land tibia rice this whole host of black and latino men and women whose lives have been taken by police in a sense that these folks are martyrs an let their dass be meaningful. Let the tragedy of the era lives at least inspire the trans formation of police departments all over the country to give us the kind of transparency and democracy that we should demand from our government. How much hope do you have have that what happened to eric garner will truly heaven impact on chain jin police force i thinking and behavior across the country i want to be optimistic and i've had the pleasure of knowing you you for many years and i've had the privilege of being on the air with you lots and lots of times so many of these times. It kind of feels like we're talking about the same thing. It kind of feels like we're asking why it does the criminal justice system treat so many people like they don't count like they're expendable. Whether it's jailers there's or police or prosecutors lawmakers. give folks even brick and so thinking about oh how common these stories are. That's a reason not to be so hopeful. Aw at the same time i think that the movement for black lives has inspired a movement for for social justice so when i look at other movements like the civil rights movement i think that they've made our democracy democracy better all of that took a while and when i look at the old jim crow though segregated schools water fountains and cemeteries it took a hundred years for the law to change. Some people have described the criminal legal process. Now is the new jim crow will. I hope it doesn't take one hundred years but now there's a whole movement in a people who just wanna make our police and prosecutors really live up to what the constitution says about equal quilt justice under the law. I'm confident that at some point the new jim crow all will end and our democracy. We'll be better pump. Thank you always a.

Mr garner don't do it. Comply officer pantaleo don't do it. I said that about the decisions made by both officer pantaleo mr garner but none of us can take back hard decisions most especially when they lead to the death of another human being being an after that long preamble after thirteen minutes thirteen minutes after the police commissioner began speaking today he finally said this therefore i agree with the deputy commissioner of trials legal findings recommendations this clear that daniel pantaleo no longer effectively service in new york city police officer joining us now is billable as the mayor of new york city in a democratic presidential candidate mr mayor. Thank you very much for joining us tonight on on this important night. You're very welcome lawyers. There was a lot of talk during the presidential the debate about why haven't you fired the officer. Could you just clarify that for the audience. It's been very clear. I think to people in new york who follow this but the the lines nsima th authority in these cases and how it works absolutely lawrence so our state law says that this is something that has to be handled within the n._y._p._d. Through through a public trial due process a decision by trial judge that goes to the commissioner's recommendation and the police commissioner by state law is the only person who can ultimately act in decades and decades of new york city history no matter what a mayor says or doesn't say the only actual ability to fire era police officer after due process is in the hands of the police commissioner and by the way if you want to see the sanctity of that due process and have it hold up in the end. It's actually important that a mayor not interfere because i believe justice has been done here finally took way too long but justice has been done and now it's. It's important that this decision stick. I'm sure there's going to be an attempt to challenge it in court but it's crucial that it stick that justice be served and that we're able to move move on as a city and a nation and i have to say lawrence. You've watched these situations all around the country. This is the premier police department a nations and not so long ago it would not have been necessarily assumed that trial inside the n._y._p._d. N._y._p._d. deputy commissioner as the judge would result old in this level of accountability. That judge said no that was prohibited chokehold that was wrong and this officer should be terminated.

Kohl's are against n._y._p._d. Rules but the a departmental judge hearing the case found that the chokehold was acceptable for the first couple of seconds because officer pencil eos grip tip slipped accidentally according to the judge into a chokehold. It's what happened after that that killed eric garner. Here's how the police commissioner described that today. During the struggle officer pantaleo had the opportunity to readjust his grip from prohibited chokehold seles lethal alternative but did not make use of that opportunity instead even once mr gar was moved to his side on the ground with his left after arm behind his back and his right hand still open and extended officer pantaleo kept his hands clasped and maintained the focal it was for that reason and the judges finding that officer pantaleo did not tell the truth to investigators that the judge recommended that daniel pencil a._o.
