A highlight from The Evangelist and the Church
"At the In your outline at the top of the outline that I will read when we get there I'm going to intersperse those throughout the message those verses and in a couple other ones Christ Bible Church has been involved with over these many years that we've been in existence quite a few evangelistic opportunities in In the corporate life of the church Very early on we were involved with the Bay Area Rescue Mission going there. We still are We have had individuals who have gone street preaching Prior to the pandemic for almost 20 years we were involved with two prisons State prisons San Quentin and Jamestown prison where a couple times a month Several of us would go later once a month, but but always there for almost 20 years I see several people who helped at the Chinese New Year's Parade where we went there to hand out tracks had quite a big turnout to hand out tracks there the gospel fest of course our brother Gerard who in addition to street preaching goes over to Cal Berkeley on a regular basis of several times a week and Today we have it turns out we have another evangelistic opportunity that we're going to talk about in the subsequent business meeting and The message is really tailored to that Issue and so the message is going to kind of be narrowly focused on the idea of evangelism Obviously, there's much to say about evangelism, but I'm going to be very Narrowly focused and you can see from your outline in the bulletin That we have two points. We're going to talk about the role of the evangelist in the life of the church and then we're going to talk about the church or the role of the church in the life of the evangelist and Though the message is quite maybe narrowly focused it it has Application I believe to all of us not just to what we want to talk about at the meeting So in the first place this morning We're going to look at these four a sub points as we think about the role of the evangelist in the life of the church We're going to talk about the existence of this role or the stated role secondly the need Thirdly the example of Philip the evangelist and as we trace through the life of Philip the evangelist, we're going to see several characteristics or traits about this evangelist What makes an evangelist what do they do? How do they act? What do they think and Then fourthly under this point. We're going to look at some precepts For evangelism that we're gonna gonna kind of broaden our thinking a little bit about this and then secondly and more briefly We'll talk about the role of the church in the life of the evangelist first of all the role of the evangelist in the life of the church Before we talk about a very specific Spiritual gift or calling or role We acknowledge that the whole idea of evangelism is really broadly stated especially in the New Testament actually Throughout the Bible but but especially in the New Testament If we were to try to come up with a very simple definition of what an evangelist is We would say it is simply someone who brings the good tidings of the gospel The good news of the gospel glad tidings of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ They're a messenger with the good news of the gospel One of my favorite verses That illustrates this definition is in Luke chapter 2 where those angels appeared to the shepherds by night Remember those shepherds were very fearful and the angel said simply this fear not Behold I bring you good tidings That word in the original is almost identical to the word evangelist.

He also serves as a senior editor for the National Catholic Register and is a senior contributor to EWTN News. The Doctors of the Church, the Carerism of Wisdom with Dr. Matthew Bunsen. I'm your host, Chris McGregor. Welcome, Dr. Bunsen. Great to be with you, Chris. I'm really looking forward to talking about our next doctor, St. Bernard of Clairvaux. Tell us why he's really quite special in the rankings of the doctors. Well, he's known as the Doctor Malifluous. He's known as the Ophthalmaturgist. In other words, he's a healer and a miracle worker. He was also kind of one of those doctors that was all -encompassing for his era, but who also imparted then important lessons for us today. He was a reformer who helped build the Cistercian Order, who helped reform much of monastic life. He was also a brilliant theologian who defended the teachings of the Church. He had a particular devotion to the Blessed Mother. But there's also one other thing that we're going to talk about, and that, of course, was his impact on the society of his time. And it came, as we're going to see, especially where the Second Crusade was concerned, at great price to him personally. And that's one of the other hallmarks of the Doctors of the Church. We always think of them as brilliant, as magnificent writers and theologians, but they were also saints. They were also people who put themselves totally at the service of Christ and his Church. And there, I think, was one of the areas where St. Bernard of Clairvaux really shined forth across the medieval sky, but it's a brightness that we can still see today. Help us to understand a term like mellifluous. What we mean by mellifluous is somebody who is perfectly capable of speaking, who's gifted as an orator, who is a brilliant speaker. Somebody who, we always say that the words just seem to roll off their tongue. Well, that certainly was St. Bernard. But there's also implied in the use of the term mellifluous, a smoothness, an elegance. Now, it's something of an apparent contradiction to think of somebody who lived a life of such severe austerity as St. Bernard of Clairvaux as being elegant. And yet, his theology, his mind, his love for the Church were indeed very elegant. He had a beautiful turn of phrase. He had a way of expressing himself that was indeed intellectually elegant. So mellifluous, I think, really works quite well when we're discussing a Doctor of the Church like this. What do we know of his upbringing? Well, we know that he was born into a noble family. And he, in France, he was born probably around 1090 to a very prominent family. His father, in fact, was a nobleman, a lord of what was known as Fontaine. His name was Tesselyn and his mother was named Alith of Mont Barde. They were part of Burgundy. So when we think of France, we think of the Burgundy region as creating these beautiful wines, the Burgundy wine. Burgundy, during this time, was emerging onto the French scene and then the European scene as one of the most prominent of the great duchies in medieval Europe. It was positioned sort of between France and Germany, but then the Burgundians would also influence the great and terrible Hundred Years' War in a couple of centuries. So the family itself enjoyed quite a bit of prominence, which meant that Bernard, as one of seven children, was given the opportunity for a great education. He was then sent to a very prominent school of chatillon that was run by a group of canons. And he quickly showed himself very capable of great learning. He enjoyed poetry. He had a skill, an aptitude for literature. And he demonstrated that ability to speak well, to be mellifluous. And he had two interesting devotions. The first was a great love of the Bible, and then the other was a particular devotion to the Blessed Mother that was going to carry him forward for the rest of his life. What led him into the Benedictine Order? Yeah. Well, Bernard himself always had a rather low opinion of himself. He was tempted by the great opportunities of life, by the temptations of the flesh, but also of the mind. He was somebody who probably would have excelled, and boy we have seen this with so many of the Doctors of the Church, he could have excelled at anything he chose to do. He could have become a very, very powerful and prominent leader in the secular world, in the world of the nobility of the time. He understood that about himself though, and I think his mother had a great deal to do with that. His mother helped ingrain in him an abiding love of the faith. And when she died, when he was 19 years old, he understood that he was being called to something else. And as we have seen with other Doctors of the Church, he felt called by Christ to escape the world, to live a life of prayer, of solitude, of contemplation. And so, in order to control himself, he used the phrase that he was aware that his body needed strong medicine. And what he meant by that was that he needed strong spiritual medicine. He turned himself over to the Benedictine order. Now, as it happens, when Bernard was only 8 years old, a very famous saint at the time, named Robert of Mollem, had founded, near the great French city of Dijon, what was known as the Abbey of Citeaux. This was the foundation of the Cistercians. Their objective was very simple, to restore the rule of Saint Benedict. Now, there's no implication that the great house, for example, of Cluny, that was the dominant institution of the time from monasticism, was corrupt. Rather, it simply did not have the same devotion to the rigor of the rule of Saint Benedict that there were some who felt it needed to have. Robert of Mollem was one of them. So, the Cistercian monastery really looked to recapture the vigor of the original rule of Saint Benedict. And it began attracting many people, many young men, who also sought what Bernard was seeking. And, as it happened, in 1113, another saint, by the name of Stephen Harding, became abbot of Citeaux. And Bernard arrived, along with a group of other young noblemen, who followed him from Burgundy and the surrounding regions, with a desire to enter the Cistercians. And Bernard proved himself, really from the very beginning, a most apt postulant. And he found his true life in Citeaux, in the Cistercians. And it was clear, in short order, that the Cistercians saw in him somebody with almost unlimited potential. You mentioned his great love for scripture. He's known for some of the most beautiful teachings, from one book in particular of the Bible, that being the Song of Songs. Yes, yes. What's interesting about his love of scripture is that he was able to reflect on scripture, but how did he do it? He did it through a series of sermons, in particular, as you note, on the Song of Songs. Now, the Song of Songs is one of the most controversial, so to speak, of the texts of scripture, of the books of the Bible, because so many people interpret it in almost exclusively sensual terms. And yet, here we have Bernard preaching on this beautiful book of the Old Testament. And for him, it was not just simply a rhetorical device to use sermons, but it was a way of imparting to every possible audience some of his most important teachings. And so we have, aside from his sermons on the Song of Songs, we also have in excess of a hundred sermons that he delivered throughout the year, throughout the liturgical year. And then he gave sermons as well on a variety of other subjects, and then of course we also have his letters. We'll be talking more, I know, about his writings in a little bit. What are some of those marks of those early years in his involvement with the Cistercians, or his living out that Cistercian call? We know, as I said, that Bernard was acutely aware of his own failings, of his own temptations, and the need, as he said, for strong medicine. The environment, Cistercian with its stress on prayer, on contemplatio, on contemplative prayer, on discipline of the monastic life, on the full embrace of not just the rigor, but also the deep humanity of the Benedictine rule, of the rule of St. Benedict, I think had a really profound influence on him. He was able to control himself, to focus his mind as he needed to have it focused. And within a short amount of time, I mean, consider that he entered around 1113, what happened within three years. He was chosen by the Cistercians to set out and do something that was almost impossible to imagine at the time. This young man was sent out to establish a new house, and it became the great founding of Clairvaux. Now, where he was sent was in the Diocese of Langres in France, in what was called the Valley of Desolation. It gives us a little visual of what we're actually talking about. This was a virtual swamp where they chose to establish this new community. And this is around 1115. And it soon became a place of almost ceaseless toil. But imagine trying to convert a swamp into a new community of religious life, and yet this is exactly what Bernard was able to accomplish. But he did it with austerity, with prayer, with almost ceaseless toil, and that took its toll on him. And always of a somewhat frail disposition, he consistently embraced austerity to the point that he wrecked much of his health, but he saw it as a worthy gift in order to get this institution of Clairvaux up and running. Now what you've just described sounds so unappealing. We're really honest with ourselves, and yet it attracted so many to the extent that it would thrive. Yes, that's the thing precisely. The harder the life was at Clairvaux, the more people seemed to be attracted to it. Now, it's not a sense of, oh, I want to embrace suffering. What it is, rather, is I want to conform my life to what the Cistercians, what Clairvaux had to offer. Think about the Sons of Nobility, who a century from now would be joining the mendicant orders of the Dominicans and especially the Franciscans. We're seeing a similar impulse toward a lifestyle of the rejection of the self, of giving up everything we have, picking up their cross and following Christ. This was the appeal of Clairvaux. This was the appeal of the Cistercians. And it was accomplished. Why? Because Bernard was able to create an environment that, yes, it was difficult, there was work and toil for everyone. But two things. One, that prayer life, but also the joy. The valley, which had once been called a place of desolation, a valley of desolation, soon acquired the title of the Valley of Light. Why? Because it was a place of prayer. It was a place of joy. And young men in growing numbers came to Clairvaux to embrace that life, but also to place themselves under the spiritual direction of Bernard. Among them were Bernard's brothers. His father, after the death of his mother, of course, embraced this life. And even his sister, Humboldtine, remained out in the world and yet she eventually, with the permission of her husband, became a Benedictine nun. This is the influence of Bernard. Bernard's brother Gerard became the master of the cellars of the Cistercians. And, of course, what soon happened, this small community of Clairvaux was bursting at the seams. They simply had no more room for the young men. So, they themselves then went out and found, established new houses, new Cistercian communities based on the model that Bernard had established at Clairvaux. And by the time of his death, more than 160 new establishments were flourishing across, not just France, but increasingly across the whole of Christendom. And if we want a testament as to what the Church thought of all of this, one of the Popes came for a visit one night and he was asked, Bernard was asked, to make it possible for the Pope to dine at Clairvaux. And he certainly gave what was a very warm welcome to the Pope and the whole papal court. Well, what was the meal? It was a humble meal of bread and a few fish. The analogy, of course, being very obvious to the Pope. Wine was not really served, but rather he received water that was filled with herbs to give it some taste. So, in other words, the Pope came to this monastery and he was not served a feast. He was given loaves in the fishes and a cup of bitter herbs. And yet, the Pope was grateful and found the entire experience to be so powerfully edifying that it confirmed once again Bernard's value to the Church, but also his value to the Popes. And that was something that many Popes availed themselves of. We'll return in just a moment to The Doctors of the Church, the terrorism of wisdom with Dr. Matthew Monson.

Is it possible for us to underestimate the power of the foundational element in all of this, of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict? And in particular, that very first paragraph, that very first exhortation by Good St. Benedict to listen with the ear of the heart. As you're describing this, that's exactly what Bernard was doing. Yeah, and in that sense we see in Bernard not something extraordinarily new, but something wonderfully old. In the sense that here was a reformer, here was in the great tradition of the church, a reformer who wanted to go back to recapture the original zeal, the fire of St. Benedict. But what was it that was always so remarkably successful about Benedict's rule? To pray, to work. All of these rules of St. Benedict are aimed at bringing the soul to Christ through work, through prayer. But there is this underlying practicality to Benedict's rule. Benedict knew people. He knew humanity. So that the rule itself was able to take a person, form them in Christ, and help them not to become less than they were with rules and other things, but rather through the rule to form them into more fully created humans, living as Christ really wants us to. Authentic freedom in giving up of ourselves for Christ. But in a way that still accommodates human frailty and human weakness, not by catering to it, but by understanding it and forming it. To use that word again, forming an authentic human person. And I think Bernard, while incredibly tough on himself, helped create an environment that was truly faithful to what Benedict had in mind. He's visited by the pope and the papal court. From this point forward, he becomes quite a, can we say, influential person within the life of the church. Very much so. In Bernard, we have one of those great voices within Christendom. And what did he use his voice for? He always placed it at the service of the popes. He defended the church against secular interference. He worked to diffuse potentially violent situations. Despite the fact that he wanted to stay at Clairvaux, he wanted to give his life exclusively to his monks, to his life of prayer. He was constantly being called out of the monastery to travel, to go forth on behalf of the popes. In 1128, for example, he took part in the Council of Troia that had been convoked by Pope Honorius II. Its was purpose to settle controversies that had developed among some of the bishops in France, as well as to try to make some sense of the ecclesiastical life of the Church of France. The church at the time in France was growing, but it was also being beset by the demands of secular rulers, of the need for internal reform. And what was Bernard given the task of doing? Well, he served as secretary of the council. He was asked to write the statutes of the synod. And as a result of it, one bishop was deposed and a real effort at reform was implemented. It's notable that coming out of this particular synod, though, there were those who did not like him. There were those who found him excessive in his call for reform. There were others in the church who felt that as a monk he had no business interfering in the life of diocese. And in one particular instance, a letter was sent to Bernard describing him as sounding like little more than a noisy and vexatious frog sitting in his marshes. Which of course was a phrase sort of going back to the very origins of Clairvaux. So here was this noisy and difficult frog croaking in the marshes and annoying as this one cardinal wrote the Holy See in the cardinals of the church. Well, of course, Bernard, using his sharp mind, made a reply to this cardinal by the name of Harmeric. And he said that he was the one who was asked by the pope to do this. And so he said, if you wish, forbid the noises of this vexatious frog. Don't allow him to leave his hole, to leave the marshes. And if that's the case, then your friends of the Holy See in the cardinals will not be forced to endure the accusations of pride and presumption that this frog is croaking in their direction. What it did was to diffuse the entire situation. And Bernard actually rose in the estimation of people because it implied two things. It showed that he had a sense of humor, which he did. He was able to do a fraternal correction of a cardinal, but in a way that everyone could appreciate. But it also pointed to his humility. It pointed to the fact that he'd been given these tasks against his will. There were other things that he would rather be doing. And yet he took up that task and he did it exceedingly well. And so in the next years, two years later, what happened? With the death of Pope Honorius, you had a new schism in the church. You had two popes who were rivals and, of course, Bernard entered the fray and helped to settle many of these issues. And then, of course, in the next years, he was so profoundly trusted that he was summoned to the second laddering council in which the schism was decisively put down. In which the rights of the real pope were validated. And then, in the coming years, he was asked by the pope to bring about the second crusade. And this, of course, became one of the great crosses that he was forced to bear. With some of the doctors that we've explored, their lives are so full and their teachings so rich that it takes us sometimes two, maybe even three episodes. And I think this is what we're encountering with St. Bernard of Clairvaux. So in conclusion of this particular conversation on his life, what's a final thought? The final thought is that we can trace in the life of St. Bernard from his earliest days a love of the faith, a desire to serve the faith. But as we have seen consistently with doctors of the church, serving in the way that God wills, not what he would rather do. And he was called, felt deeply the love of the contemplative life, but God had other plans for him. The wider service of the church. And he spent those years, his early years at Clairvaux, serving the church. And he was asked to serve on a wider plane. And he was going to give the rest of his life to that, regardless of the cost. And there, I think, is the lesson for all of us. I look forward to our future conversations, particularly about St. Bernard. So do I. Looking forward to it, Chris. God bless. Thank you.

"gerard" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Did this happen? And especially the regional banks, even though, again, I pointed out just the percentage waiting of what SVB would do to that entire index if it sold off 60%. But are we imputing a bad securities portfolio on a lot of these regionals, but how about the biggest banks with the best balance sheets in the world? Yep, no, you're right. And I think what the market is worried about is, you know, as you guys talked about with the employment numbers coming tomorrow, we have to make sure the Federal Reserve gets this inflation under control. And if we're sitting here in 6 months and inflation is still at 5 6%, we're not going to see a terminal rate of 5.5 and a half percent. Therefore, if rates go up much higher than these bond problems become more of a problem for everybody, but we have to remember that the banks are not forced to sell these bonds. Most of these are governments and agency bonds and they are not credit risk, but you need the funding that right side of the balance should write it out and the money senators can. Two legends in one night. Tyler Matheson and Gerard Cassidy. So I want to take you down memory lane Gerard if you allow me to September 17th, 2019, we don't talk about it. We probably don't need not talk about it, but the overnight repo market blew up and I'm choosing that word. And there's some signs out there that maybe the reverse repo market, my question to you is that to me was the beginning of what we saw subsequently in 2020. Any concerns in the repo market and what it might be telling us. Guy night and thank you for your compliments. I would say not yet. Certainly we're watching it carefully. You know how large the reverse repo market has become with the Federal Reserve doing what it's doing by paying higher rates of deposit there, but so far it seems to be pretty much under control compared to what you said in 2019. Now, I'll go back a little further if you go back to 1980. This is the problem that the savings banks had in New York City is exactly what you sort of say with Silicon Valley. Who's got to comment on an idea here, Jeff, jump in. Yeah, so my comment would be that I totally agree with what girard is saying relative to the dynamics of all of this. I mean, I think it's more of a macroeconomic issue more broadly for the banks versus something here that's going to translate to some problem across all of them and I do think that today was a little bit of an overreaction. I guess what I would want to know from Gerard is thinking about the macro economy going forward, how do you think that then translate into bank performance more broadly outside of what we're talking about today? Broad credit exposure, things of that nature. Jeff, Jeff, if you put your thumb right on it, it really, this is today, it was unfortunate. But it will get through this, in my opinion. And it's really all about credit. Every time we've gone through a credit cycle, if it turns out to be really bad, that's when the bank suffered the most. We all remember O 8 O 9, 1990 was another tough one. O one not as much. But this is the key part about this inflation number because if the fed has to continue to raise the fed funds rate to 7, 7 and a half, maybe 8% because they can not get inflation under control. We will go into a hard landing. That means bigger credit problems. So to your point, that is the macro call. We're not there. We're not suggesting that. We think they're going to get to the terminal rate at 5. We'll get somewhat of a soft recession. The other thing too is that since the financial crisis, the banks have to go through this stress test every year, which is extremely difficult. So our banks and I think you guys touched on it, they're better capitalized. They have more liquidity and credit is very strong. And so when it comes, they'll be able to weather the storm, but that is that is what we're watching. Right now, we're not ready to jump off the ship on the banks to say get out of them because in credit, that's too early, but that is what we are watching. Gerard, thank you so much for being with us. Always a delight and you're fire looks so warming

"The Dallas stars defeated the Colorado avalanche 7 to three in a central division battle so the division leading stars now lead the as by a points. Stores jumped out to a three one lead after one, never looked back. Dallas coach Pete deboer says it was a big victory for his team. It's an important win, but that doesn't mean all of a sudden we're the best team lead because we beat the Stanley Cup champion 7 three tonight. We've got a lot of work left to do. Jason Robertson led the stars of the pair of goals now as 37 on the season, Joe pavelski and mason marshman had a long scoring drought with goals, while Sam Gerard led Colorado with a goal into assists.

Binance SWIFT Banking Partner Set to Ban USD Transfers Below $100K
"All right, Friends, welcome back to another week of the breakdown. And there was a pretty good cluster of news there at the very end of last week heading into the weekend to say nothing of over the weekend, so today we're going to go over what we missed and see where it leaves us heading into this final week of January. Let's start on Saturday morning where we had some fairly sensational reporting before things calm down a bit. On Saturday a headline from the publication Asia markets sent a shockwave through crypto Twitter. The headline was swift payments network access cut to crypto exchanges, which if it were what the headline suggested would be a pretty big deal. So what it was actually about was changes to policies affecting binance. These changes would prevent customers from processing transactions to and from the exchange in amounts less than $100,000 via the swift payments network beginning in February. Swift is the international U.S. dollar based transaction messaging system, which facilitates a majority of cross border wires. Now short on details and high on FUD potential, the article caused the crypto critical corners of Twitter to light up with speculation that this was the end of the crypto industry. David Gerard writes swift network will no longer process transfers of actual money from bank accounts to cryptocurrency exchanges with the value of less than $100,000, effective 1st of February 2023. The move will thwart crypto access to tens of millions of people worldwide. Thankfully, finance a lot rights crypto exchanges use the swift network to facilitate deposit and withdrawal requests in Fiat currency. It's scary how many replies don't know about swift and how big of a deal this announcement is. Basically, crypto exchanges are cut off from the banking system on February 1st.
Twitter Censorship and the Covid Vaccine Debate
"The latest drop of the Twitter files comes from the journalist Alex berenson now. I've had Alex on the show some months ago now. And Alex has been focused on science reporting and of late specifically on reporting about COVID. And what's kind of interesting about these Twitter files is that Twitter files involve Alex themselves. So it's particularly appropriate that he be the one to blow the whistle on it. And I think Elon Musk is being very clever, very strategic. Matt taibbi, Barry Weiss, and now Alex Alex berns and there have been a couple of others as well. Now, this story begins with a guy named Scott gottlieb and Scott gottlieb is a director of Pfizer, Pfizer, the medical company. And he's kind of a big name on Twitter. He has about 550 thousand Twitter followers. In any event, it turns out that he sees a tweet gottlieb does. And he goes, wow, this is a tweet that may not be good for Pfizer. This is a tweet that might hurt Pfizer mRNA vaccine sales. And the tweet was from, yeah, it wasn't from some activist, wasn't from Robert F. Kennedy, junior wasn't even from berenson. It was from doctor Brett giroir, a physician who also had been himself as gottlieb was head of the Food and Drug Administration. And the tweet was not an anti vaccine tweet. In fact, it ended by saying get vaccinated, but the tweet went on to say, hey, listen, it says that the. Immunity that you get from the vaccine may not be as great as natural immunity. In fact, natural immunity provides more protection than vaccine immunity. Now, this is, in fact, a, an accurate statement by doctor Gerard. And in fact, the doctors cited a prominent study, a peer reviewed study that showed this. So it wasn't just that he was claiming it. It was that he was documenting it, and it's not even that Scott gottlieb disagreed with him. Start Scott gottlieb agreed that the factual statement being made was true.
"gerard" Discussed on The Garden Report | Boston Celtics Post Game Show from TD Garden
"Besides Tatum. How could you have a bench in the NBA Finals that scores 5 points? Well, the Celtics Gerard called it south X did go to Hauser at the end of the game. It just too a little too late. Yeah, you called it. It's not how you envisioned it going. But we got an entire summer to get into what the hell they need. But I think that this really, this is our pulses of red has made it abundantly clear. They need shooters. They need guys who actually have that as their specialty. I am at the point where I don't give a damn how bad you defend the ball. Don't even apply. Don't even apply if you can't shoot. Exactly. There needs to be like an open call for shooters. If you're 6 5 or taller and you can shoot the hell out of the ball, there's a spot for you. Sorry, Jimmy. Sorry, Jimmy. Jimmy just got Jimmy doesn't qualify. This leads right into this leads into Jimmy's Wheelhouse here. As we talk about offense versus defense, defense is the reason this team went as far as they did. Defense is the reason they turned the season around offense is the reason that they lost and they lost in an embarrassing way. And everything you're going to address. So there is a tipping point there. Defense is important, but again, every team, even good teams like Golden State, Milwaukee, Miami, have guys on their team who have roles and those roles are to score the basketball and those guys are guys you have to find creative ways to hide defensively. This weird insistence on and maybe this is just how the roster construction ended up and they realized this year, okay, we're better off really locking in on D and just letting the wings cook. But if it's a philosophy that everybody here has got to play D because we got to be this switchable monster and that's the only way it works here. That's going to be a problem because you need guys who can put the ball in the basket and right now it's frigging bad..

"This week is Gerard O'Reilly He is the chief investment officer and co CEO at dimensional fund advisers managing about 650 $1 billion in client assets So let's talk about factors a little bit How did the academic research that Rex and David the two cofounders of DFA How did that become part of the investment process So I guess there's a couple of salient points there One is factor research in itself And we talked a little bit earlier on about models and what they're useful for and how you draw inferences from them I really look in factor models as a way to organize historical data so you can try to understand better What really drove differences in returns across different groups of securities different groups of stocks different group of bonds And from those you can glean very important insights about the drivers of expected returns the drivers of differences in risk across Different asset categories And so I think that's the important aspect of factor models So when you put N dimension in its founding in context of kind of a burgeoning field in the 80s and in the 90s when more and more factor models were being developed and tested and so on the founding was to I would say address an institutional need that David had identified which was there weren't many systematic strategies that targeted the returns of small cap stocks And he found that that was a hole in many institutional investor portfolios And along the around the same time because David has done his MBA at the University of Chicago Now blue school of business around that same time there was evidence coming out that smaller cap stocks also had higher average returns historically and reasons promoted about why that will be higher expected returns going forward And so around that time was kind of when those factor models were developing So it started with the client need And then it was well let me go to the academics and understand what are the research around this client need Am I going to do something here that makes sense or not make sense from an academic perspective and then how do I build a good robust solution to address that client need And then of course in the 90s you had the three factor model come along and then in the mid 90s you had momentum come along and in the 2000s you had things like profitability and investment come along So you had lots of different factors uncovered over time But the way that we look on each one of those is their models they give us insights from the data How do you use that to build robust portfolios And I would say that's been kind of part of our heritage for 40 years How do we build portfolios that can target these premiums but B robust regardless of the market environment And we've been through many different market crises with a broad range of investment strategies that have come out quite well the other side So let's talk a little bit about gene fama and Ken French's what started out as a three factor model It eventually became 5 and 7 Now there are hundreds of factors many of which don't really add a whole lot of alpha or not consistent enough alpha to justify their complications and costs Tell us a little bit about the fama French factor model Yeah so when you go to the 80s there was a lot of empirical evidence being uncovered that the prevailing model from the 60s and the 70s the capital asset pricing model Didn't explain the data very well So when you looked at it it was a beautiful model It was very intuitive But it didn't explain the data all that well And so canon gene in the early 90s started to organize all the data to say can we put some of these observations in one kind of unified viewpoint of the historical data And from that exercise came a better model in the sense that it could explain the returns that you saw among stocks far better than the capital asset pricing model So it's been more of the returns more of the variation that you saw on the returns across stocks And so that subsequently came the three factor model Then to your point lots of factors have been added if you look at families are even Ken's website now You'll see a profitability factory You'll see an investment factor You'll see momentum factors you'll see all different types of factors And as I mentioned earlier factors are really great to help you organize the historical data But you don't want to get too starry eyed about the latest factor model I kind of view a lot of the academic research over the past 30 years as doing variants on a theme And so it's not that kind of aha brand new discovery but it refines your understanding of existing factors So there's probably 20 or 30 or 40 different value factors out there But you don't need all 20 or 30 or 40 when you're managing a strategy but you can get insights from the different factors on how to manage a strategy effectively And so what I mean by that is if you think about what data are available you have security prices you have data from income statements So things like income or profits or revenues are expenses And you have data from balance sheets assets and liabilities They're the broadly the data that are available to go test And when you look at all of those factor models there are variants on a theme The writer looking at current values of those variables whether it's current income or current price to book ratios or priced earnings ratios or they're looking at how they've changed How to have prices changed over the past number of months How have assets grown over the past number of months I was profitability changed over the past number of months So there's three data sources and people do two things with them So there's actually really kind of 6 that you can think about that kind of encompass most of the hundreds of factors that you see out there And I think that if you have coverage of those 6 current prices current balance sheet items current income statement items and then how each one of those have changed in recent past You have pretty broad coverage of all the various different factor literature that's available And that's what we do at dimensional Really interesting stuff Coming up we continue our conversation with gerardo Riley chief investment officer and co CEO of dimensional funds discussing.

"Extra special guest this week is Gerard O'Reilly He is the co chief executive officer and chief investment officer of dimensional fund advisers The 40 year old firm has about 1500 employees and manages about $650 billion in client assets so let's talk a little bit about the growth of DFA and your role there You're a bit younger than the typical member of your management team how does that affect how you do your job What do you bring to the table that some of the more senior managers might be missing So I've never really thought about it to be perfectly honest And maybe that's in part because I've always been on the younger side whether it was in high school relative to the rest of the folks in my class I went to college when I was 16 And so it was a little younger than the other folks in my class And then when I started working at dimensional after doing a PhD was younger than some of the other folks in the research team So it's always been kind of the state of play So I don't think about it too much I would say I have to mention we have a very academic view of how to interact with each other So interact with each other with respect But challenge And argue the facts and the issues and the best ideas win And so I think that when it comes to how to interact with colleagues whether they're younger or they're older it's exactly under that formula You have to operate with respect listen to the ideas and then the best idea wins Our view is don't defend the idea just because it's your idea embrace the best idea and the right idea because ultimately long term that's going to be better for the clients And if you make it better for the clients you're going to have a better business So when it comes to business clients first makes business very straightforward on how to make decisions and what decisions to make And I think at that atmosphere I've always enjoyed a dimensional So therefore age has never been never been an important ingredient So full disclosure my firm is a client of dimensional funds Wealth management uses dimensional funds as one of our primary asset managers along with Vanguard BlackRock et cetera but dimensional is definitely one of our larger fund providers and I'm very aware of the process that dimensional goes through in order to make sure that their clients understand the philosophy and understand the model with an eye towards avoiding the sort of flavor of the month hey I'm chasing this hot manager No now I'm chasing that hot fun family ETFs are very much a break from that prior embrace of working very closely with clients Tell us a little bit about the internal discussions that must have taken place before you switch to ETFs which hey anybody could go to their online training account or Robinhood or whatever it is and buy the ETF How have you managed around that So there was two big drivers of that decision The first was input from clients And as I mentioned earlier we work with financial professionals So we don't work with the end retail consumer We work with financial advisers like firms like yourself who can get that level of understanding and knowledge and experience so they understand what we're what we're trying to accomplish A lot of those firms were saying we're using ETFs more and more frequently on behalf of our clients and we'd like to be able to use dimensional ETFs Could you launch ETFs please And so we took that away we thought a lot about it And that was kind of 2018 time frame And on the books with the SEC back then was a new proposed ETF rule And what that rule effectively did was it made ETFs much more straightforward to bring to the market much more straightforward for the end investor to evaluate But then also clarified some things around the inner workings of ETFs that were important to us because we're not an index manager We have a lot of the benefits of an index based approach that include broad diversification low turnover low costs but we have an active implementation And so those rules got passed in 2019 the fourth quarter of 2019 is when the SEC adopted those rules rule 6 C 11 for anybody who's nerdy enough to want to look into them And that was a bit of a game changer for us We could do now what we had done in our mutual funds for decades in an ETF wrapper So there was no give up on the investment proposition As soon as that rule was passed we went into full launch mode By June of 2020 we had announced that we were going to launch by November of 2020 It's almost a year after the rule came out We had launched those were the two big drivers On the tax efficiency side that wasn't as big a driver for us Largely because in your familiar with this our mutual funds tend to be highly tax efficient And we had tax managed mutual funds that had similar tax efficiency ratios to ETFs So we had very very tax efficient approach ETFs take it up a little bit our ETFs do But it was more what our clients were asking for And the rules changed such that we could deliver an investment proposition that was on par with our mutual fund investment proposition Really interesting Coming up we continue our conversation with gerardo Riley dimensional funds chief investment officer and co CEO.
"gerard" Discussed on Patriots Beat
"Sense. Right. If I'm drawing Mayo, it sounds like Mayo could have other offers. Much rather be in Chicago with Justin Fields in that ownership, which has been very patient historically right. You only get so many chances to be a head coach. Houston's your only opportunity to get there, you take the job. I don't think it's going to be the only opportunity for Gerard mayor or Brian Flores. And I think it the next coach there like culley is ultimately going to end up being a sitting duck. I think it ends poorly. I don't want that mark on my record. And if you're McDaniels, this is your last chance. You can't afford to have it go poorly. So you talk about, you know, obviously, casario and Jack easterby are targeting patriots assistants, how much of that is they want to keep it in the family and they want to hire a former patriots guy versus how much do they have to. How much of it is, those guys are their best shot at getting a quality coach because any coach worth the damn who isn't friends with them isn't going to give them the time of day. I think it's more that I think that's more the case. That's become such a dumpster fire that I don't think you're going to get a quality coach to take that job right now. Yeah, so I think the biggest thing I agree with a lot of what you said about the situation in Houston. But I think the biggest thing if you're Brian Flores, if you're Gerard Mayo, that you learn about the situation in Miami with Flores, especially as an African American coach, is that relationships is pretty much the only key for you. Because it's not going to matter ultimately, I look Brian Flores went down in Miami had two winning seasons, one ten games this year with the dolphins, got fired. So ultimately, the reason why Brian Flores got fired is because he couldn't get along with Chris Greer and Steven Ross and played friendly in the sandbox. So when I look at this, I say, okay, at least when I go to Houston, if I'm Flores or if a Mayo, I'm teaming up with Easter being casario and where are the we're either going down with the ship together or we're making this work, right? There's really no middle ground because they'll give Mayo or they'll give Flores two or three years. But that's also a song of Alicia, they're gonna give casario an Easter B as well..

But you know, the key feature is artificial intelligence and how you're integrating that into the process. Talk to us about how companies are leveraging this technology. Yeah, sure. So we operate and not as a bank or lender, but as a partner to banks to let them use AI technology to originate credit. And that really means more accurate models that will unbalance approved more people at lower loss rates. And so it's It's just something When you put it together, it pretty dramatically increases or improves access to credit for consumers. But it also helps banks have more inclusive and more profitable lending programs. That's kind of the heart of AI as it's applied to lending Traditional lenders keeping up with the technology. And how do you know which ones are and which ones aren't Well, it's a good question. I mean, it's really hard to compare lenders and in the results of of lending is sometimes it takes a while to play out. So it's a little hard for the world to actually, you know, completely grasp what's real and what's not, because there's a lot of buzz words flying around for sure, but ultimately, you know, a strong business ends up in the growth. It ends up in the profits in the things that we've the ways we've measured businesses ad infinitum, and I think, ultimately that's what we're demonstrating here.

So the only representative of the American military is a guy with PTSD. You can't speak correctly. That's correct. Okay. Just want to clarify that. Make sure I'm just writing down the reasons I'm not seeing this movie. So you're just I want to make sure to getting the project. An agent of the bad guys is of sabotaging the missing mission or attempting to attempting to do so. So it is. It is a thriller. You will be sitting on the edge of your seat. It keeps your attention I'll have to like Liam Neeson. So I'm biased. Perhaps, uh, this is not like Schindler's list. It's not a great acting performance as you were saying. It's another semi revenge movie. He's very good at that. Picking up on Charles Bronson from years ago, Uh and I didn't mind watching it. I That's a rousing endorsement. I didn't mind watching it, says microbes, and they should put that on the movie poster Mike. They could put your little quote right at the dike. Rosen Ko a. Didn't mind watching mind watching it. It was It was all right. Critics at rotten tomatoes gave it 48%. The audience gave it 33%, which was surprised because it's a self selected audience. And you figure likes Liam Neeson. Even they didn't like it. And I am Devi gave us 5.5, which is a terrible score for a new movie that comes out especially with the star like William Neeson. By the way, I should mention This movie is a complete rip off of a previous film made 1953 called the Wages of War, which is a French film with Let's see who is in the original. You know, you're literally the only person in the world that will make this connection, Dave. So if you have stolen from something that is so old, No one remembers. It isn't really a Clinton Yes, it is because this is a great film, uh, with the Montagne, and it's the same thing except instead of, uh in the Arctic. We're in the middle of South America, and there's an explosion in an oil field and there's an oil fire. The only way to put it out is with nitroglycerin. So these Two guys with two teams of guys and trucks have to go across this road with nitroglycerin in order to have an explosion to put out the oil fire, And whoever gets there gets a big financial price. So the whole plot except the film is so much better than this. You get to know all the characters intimately here. You don't know anyone except By what they do and what they say at the moment. It's uh well, if it's a French movie, then Gerard met Pardew must have been in. It was too early for a Gerard Gerard. Damp album, and I should point out I don't like French films. But this one is a great one. And they stole the plot for this mediocre to lousy film, huh? Uh, all the bad guys are corporation, white guys. It's So, you know, Mike Mike didn't mind that I minded it. It was the ice scenes where you're crashing through ice with a semi. It's kind of fun to watch. You know that That's uh I mean, if you're into that kind of thing If you're into that kind of thing, But other than that, Mike was on the edge of his seat. I think you'll only be on the edge of your seat. If you have an uncomfortable seat because it's totally predictable. You know what's going to happen from the beginning to the end, and you're never surprised. Never surprised. Okay, That's pretty first thing.

That's the whole great performance by the bobblehead dollar who didn't have any lines, but You felt the emotion performance, Especially when it shook. Yeah, you cried. It was all because of the bobblehead doll there. Okay, So the movie is the ice road. Where is it Available in case someone does want to watch it. That's Netflix. Right? Okay, So what do you guys give this movie that I'm not going to watch? Because I like Italy in these and I'm gonna give it three out of five. I saw you. Was it three or 2.5?

Admiral Brett Giroir Says China Has an Extensive Bioweapons Program
"Well, here's what's weird because this was a guy who was in the room for all these conversations to here's Admiral Brett Dirar. Admiral Gerard was in the room. For these conversations. And Admiral Gerard was on Fox News recently. And he basically said, Listen, I'm free to speak. Now. I don't work for the government anymore, and I'm kind of curious about this whole like Buy a weapon thing. It's kind of a paraphrase of what he said. But Check this out. It is not outrageous to hypothesize. You say that the virus could have been part of an offensive bioweapons program and leaked out accidentally. Well, that seems to be discounted by Dr Collins and other people. I think the most likely explanation is that it was gain of function. Mutation work, it leaked out. But unlike the United States, the United States does not have an offensive biological weapons program. There are multiple open sources of Intel that suggests that China has an extensive biological weapons program. And that is integrated between state laboratories, academia and private industry. So it is not crazy as people, um suggest, like Dr Collins suggested that this could have been part of a bio program. Oh, okay, guys, ladies. This guy Admiral Dirar was in the room. He was on the coronavirus task Force. You think he's just spouting off on Fox? Because he's bored on the weekend. He's sitting around watching episodes of food that built America and he's like, Gosh, have freed Ole stories. Great. I'm really bored.

Former top aide details sexual harassment allegations against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
"It is and what I was saying before. It is kind of a threat thing, But I worked with the guy that every woman referred to his creepy Joe, and he was a perfectly nice guy. But do we all know him? Is he? No, No, no, no, no. This is years ago. Those corporate America years ago. Not not that show. Not the one of the oval. Okay? No, no, no, no, no, not him. He's perfectly lovely. Um But like he would say to me that I had to work with Joe and he would be like he would always comment about all that such a nice dress. You're wearing something like that, But it was just the way that he said it would make me feel like alright, back off. Big guy, You know, like it just was the way, he said it was another co worker. A male co worker could say what? Why you look really necessary, but thank you because it was the way they said it. It's the vibe. It's the total vibe, but I don't know how you fix that vibe. Guys, I don't know. But if you're creepy, your creepy The heavy breathing is kind of a giveaway. Oh, if a woman looks you goes, I think we should take a shower. Now you're probably that guy. So now, of course, Cuomo's AIDS or denying that this happened. They deny the claims because she was very specific when she said she was on that plane in October, 2017 and and who was on who was seated next to her, she wrote, As I said that his press aide was to my right. A state trooper was behind us. Well, Cuomo's press secretary, a woman, by the way, kid. Caitlyn Garrard. Gerard dismissed the allegation, she said in a statement. As we said before Miss Boylan's claims of inappropriate behavior or quite simply false, and she cited flight logs detailing Cuomo's plane trips in October of 2017 and said there was quote no flight, where Lindsay was alone with the governor, a single press aide and a New York state trooper as she claimed in the block post, And she also cited a joint statement from several former aides who shared flights of the governor and Boylan during that period, who denied the That occurred as she described. We were on each of these October flights. This conversation did not happen. Yes. So that's all a lie. That's a complete lie. The statement itself is alive. Why it's provably alive. In fact, Lindsay Boylan, in her statement, never said she was alone with those people on the flight. She never once made that allegation. The Congress. The governor's office is inventing an allegation to knock down this is a strong man, Lindsay Boylan never said she was alone. With the governor, a press aide and in New York state trooper. She never said that there was nobody else on that flight or anything like that. The governor's office releases a statement claiming well, there were more people on that flight, contrary to what she claims in her block. Plus, she never claimed that never for a moment. The only thing she claimed, was that the press aide and the New York State trooper were near her. When the governor suggested that they play strip poker. That's the on Lee thing, she alleged. So even in the defense here we see dishonesty come out of Cuomo's office immediately. Their first instinct is to lie. Yeah, well, this sexual harassment working group, which is an organization formed by seven former New York state legislative employees who witnessed or experienced harassment in the state's political landscape. I have called for an independent investigation enter out into her allegations, and you have Congresswoman Elise Stefanik calling for Cuomo to resign. In the wake of both of these scandals with the nursing home handling with coronavirus deaths. And now this sexual harassment allegation as well, she said he has earned the title is worse Governor in America and now every New Yorker knows that he's a criminal sexual predator. And she said, You know, I called for this when these allegations came out in December on December 14th that was one of the first and on Lee elected officials in New York state to call for an investigation.

Well, it was such a blast to suddenly make it real ization of the man of 1000 songs never got around to recording the one song. Grievous angels used to play. We used to play this in country bars all across Whenever we toward Canada, any of the working class bars we played, We learnt it. From kitchen party cassette. That our accordion is Peter Gerard. He's really deeply meshed in the traditional, you know, music scene and he brought us this kitchen party cassette and it was wrong singing iron working man and we learnt it. And so it was just something we always well. We thought it was a really famous Ron Hind song, because how could it not be? If we knew it? Everyone must know it and I was in ST John's and someone said, What are you talking about? Iron working, and that's not on any record, and we learned that yet He wrote it for the play High Steel about the guys who left Conception Bay to build the world trade centers and it's such a beautiful song. And when we had a blast recording because we asked Andy Maze from the sky diggers to come in and join us, and we have AH new band member Janet Mercy, A Who's a bluegrass singer with a thick scouser acts and she's from Liverpool.

If you ran out of songs you got sent to bed. So those songs even as I was in punk rock and touring, I was still listening to Thekla Ansi brothers, and we go to ST John's will be to try and find Ryan's fancy vinyl because to me that was that was the gold. So that music that folk music the music of ordinary people, I mean, That was our That's that's the working classes. CNN. That's the only way we get stories doubt about people, and I realized moving back to northern Ontario. Where you know I live in an incredible mining town, the culture here so Distinct and no offense to singer songwriters. But man, I'm not interested in hearing about myself and my own feelings. I find the stories of working people in their struggles way more interested, so that's it's in all the grievous angel songs that's always been there. It's that tradition of telling people stories and And and having fun having lots of fun doing it. Well, you but but punk rock, I mean, you you mentioned you start out electron J in Andrew Cash was also also became a politician.

Becomes a politician. Well, you know, that was a really, That's a that's a dynamite question. Nobody's ever asked me, but I've actually thought about it. It was the whole class thing of being a sell out of getting a record deal. And and I never thought ever become a politician. I just It wasn't something was on my radar. Actually, Jack Clayton talked me into it. And he said you could do politics with integrity. And I thought, Yeah, maybe we can. And when I got elected, I put my staff together the way I'd put a band together the way a bad works together. I didn't need you know a bunch of brilliant guitar players. I needed people who listened and work and really cared about. Project and I said to my staff, Ah good band could go 2000, kilometers and a band without killing each other and come out stronger.
