Lack of Paid Sick Time Could Be a Barrier to Vaccination
"Of today everyone sixteen and older is now eligible to receive a covid vaccine in every single state more than two hundred million shots have already been given in the us so far about half of all adults have received at least one dose. The vaccine is free whether you have health insurance or not but even minus the massive logistics of distributing the vaccine there are logistics involved in getting it and some workers are having trouble getting paid time off to get their shots or to deal with side effects from the workplace culture desk. Marketplace's megan mccarthy carino has the story when washington dc software engineer lori. Barth got the vaccine last month Kind of kicked her but headache chills. brain fog. I don't think i could have read taxed on screen comfortably. Loan sit up in a chair. Barth didn't have to worry about working through the pain because she got her vaccine on a weekend and she has plenty of paid sick time. She could've used but not all workers do says vicki shavuot a senior fellow with new america. And you could very easily see how it would be financially impossible and potentially job risking for a worker to be able to get a vaccine. There is no national requirement that employers offer any sick leave much less a couple of days to get vaccinated and low wage. Essential workers are among the least likely to have paid time off says elite schools with the economic policy institute. They may not have a lot of power negotiate for when the best time is to have the vaccines that they make sure. They don't have to work the next day. In case there's side effects said that impact them thirteen states and several dozen cities do mandate some form of paid sick leave and many employers like mcdonald's starbucks and wal mart have offered paid time off for employees to get vaccinated doric rice a law professor at uc hastings. Says it's important. That workers have vaccine time off on top of their usual sick leave.

Netflix might be cracking down on password sharing
"Netflix users. beware. The company is considering a crackdown on customers. Who share their passwords with friends or family members. Netflix knows many of its two hundred million subscribers or piggybacking on someone else's account and now the company is testing a new papa message asking some users to verify that they own the account. They're trying to log into. Peter kafka is senior correspondent at recode and host of recode media peter either. So what is netflix up to here. Well that's a good question Their official line is just a test. Who knows what the who's who knows what we're gonna do but in theory. It looks like they might be reconsidering a longtime stands. They've had which is basically you. We're not telling you this but we're not gonna complain if you share your net password with a lot of other people They're doing a test. That says if for instance you've ever borrowed a netflix password You might see a pop up on your tv saying hey. You can only do this if you have a netflix account with us and if you do let us know and we'll send you a log in and you can get on yourself. It seems appears to be nudging you towards going from free loader to paying netflix's subscribe well. It does seem to me that it could be like the end of an era because people have been sharing passwords for as long as netflix has been around. You know just a few years ago. Ceo reed hastings said password sharing something that you have to learn to live with. So why crackdown now. Well we don't again. We don't know they're cracking down. You know the the obvious conclusion you can draw is. Netflix used to sort of own streaming. That didn't have any competition and now there's a lot of competition from disney discovery plus and paramount plus. Hbo max and the suggestion would be all right. We people paying for us instead of paying for hbo max. Paramount plus people make a decision I'm not sure that's the case There's also a theory that h netflix's just taste testing out a count security you know. Netflix doesn't give free trials anymore. They used to do that. They've they've moved away from that And so if you wanna tease this all the way up and saying look you know what net flicks is you like it. It's time for you to star paying It would also suggest that theory holds up. That netflix is thinking we've got two hundred million subscribers worldwide. Seventy million in the us. How many more are we going to acquire With getting the freeloaders start paying but again redoing speculation here sure and do you have any idea how common it is for people to share passwords. I mean i. I i i personally. What happens a lot. I've shared my password for my entire family at various points. And i think they've all ended up paying for their own and in one point. I think that for a long time for for a lot of these dreamers was look. We'd rather have you paying but in the but you're also sort of giving us remarketing There's a there's a consulting firm magazine associates that that estimates that may be thirty percent of of netflix's users are are are are sharing. I guess passwords anecdotally. It's it's a lot of people because there really hasn't been any reason not to You did here During the pandemic people who'd been used to sharing their passwords. And you know In theory netflix. Lets you stream multiple accounts at the same time during the pandemic when everyone is at home streaming netflix. You've heard the people were running into that limit already. So this is something that could have been stirred on stirred up by the pandemic business has been pretty good. I think for netflix gained an extra thirty seven million customers during the pandemic because of all those people staying home watching the

Nearly 3 million U.S. women have dropped out the labor force
"Not long after Donald Trump arrived at the White House, he disbanded and office that focused on challenges affecting women. President Biden is now resurrecting it. Women's rights groups hope this will help them make progress on things like paid family leave and affordable child care. Here's NPR's Melissa Block. The wish list on Biden's agenda for women is long restoring an expanding reproductive rights, combating gender based violence, reducing maternal mortality, and he's pitched a slew of economic proposals. Major structural disruption requires major structural change. And I feel like thinking big right now is exactly what we need to do. So now is the time That's the co chair of the Biden administration's new gender Policy Council. Jennifer Klein. You know we're seeing because of the health pandemic because of the economic crisis, and, in fact, take care giving crisis that's been layered on top of it. These are core issues core issues, Klein points out that air hitting women hard and especially women of color. Just look at the most recent jobs numbers. In December, women accounted for all 140,000 of the country's net lost jobs. One factor behind that, with so many schools and day care centers closed because of the coronavirus. Many women have had to drop out of the labor force. That's been disastrous, says Joan Williams, director of the Center for Work Life Law at the University of California, Hastings. Mother's already We're at the breaking point in the United States. I mean, we already had a choc your system that was basically a Rube Goldberg machine and the coronavirus brought that machine crashing down. Williams says. What she wants the Biden administration to do is to recognize that Just as we don't expect workers to get to work without physical infrastructure like bridges and roads. We can't expect workers to get to work without a care infrastructure. What would that care Infrastructure look like for Williams? That would mean subsidized neighborhood based child care, paid family leave Universal, pre K and $15 an hour minimum wage, especially during the pandemic. Single moms have had to choose between putting food on the table and leaving young Children home alone. Now. Part of the reason is because the minimum wages so low that there is no way on God's green Earth that those moms can pay for childcare. The paid caregivers are also reeling from the crunch. President Biden highlighted this when he announced his covert 19 relief plan last month. Let's make sure caregivers mostly women, women of color immigrants. Have the same pay indignity that they deserve. Advocates like I Jen poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance, are heartened by what they're hearing from Biden. Her group represents workers, including nannies, home care workers and housekeepers, actually focusing on how we're going to make Thies jobs, good jobs for the 21st century. That you can take pride in and earn a living wage with benefits. That is a really big breakthrough. Conservatives, though, are leery of an agenda that carries a hefty price tag and they warn, will lead to crushing government regulations. Charmaine Yost is vice president of the Institute for Family Community and Opportunity at the Heritage Foundation. My biggest concern is that all of the proposals that I'm hearing coming from their side of things inevitably seem to come back to big government intervention in government programs. As for raising the minimum wage in the midst of a pandemic, when many businesses are suffering so badly if there were a time that you could create, that would be the perfect time to not Raise the minimum wage. This would be it with such a slim Democratic majority in Congress. Biden's agenda could have a tough time gaining traction. But Fatima Goss Graves, who heads the National Women's Law Center, is undaunted. Her group has issued an ambitious list of 100 demands for Biden's 1st 100 days. Basically, what we're asking this administration and Congress to do is effectively walk into gum. We need them to both undo things that have been harmful and have been Holding this country back and launch us forward in a way that we're stronger for it, Graves adds.

Legal analysis of Trump impeachment trial
"To the program. Byron York He's the chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner. He's a Fox news contributor in his capacity. The Examiner, he writes the Daily memo. Which is a newsletter. Available each day. He's also author of the book Obsession Inside the Washington Establishments. Never ending War on Trump, Byron. Good to Have you back. Good. Good to Be Here, guys. Thanks very much, Yes, that you've got a lot going on, obviously. And in your latest daily Nemo, you dive into some of these legal arguments and they're really in some ways process arguments. From various Republicans, particularly in the Senate about the upcoming impeachment trial. We know that the impeachment article being transferred over the Senate today with a start date on the trial. February the ninth, so a bit of a delay there, which is what some of the Republicans have been asking for. They've gotten it before we get into some of the other ancillary questions and details about the trial. It seems like and this is based on your reporting. What a fair amount of the Republican opposition to a conviction here in this impeachment trial will be rooted in the question of whether or not it's even appropriate or permissible. To host a trial like this against an official who's no longer in office. Walk us through some of the details and some of the relevant history on this. Well, there's there's been a big debate before Donald Trump River appeared on the scene. There was a big debate over whether a former official can be impeached and tried and removed from office. OK, so the The Constitution, says. Quote Article two section for the president, Vice president and all civil officers of the United States shall be removed on from office on impeachment for and conviction of treason, bribery and other high crimes and misdemeanors. So we hear we've heard that Ah lot and Republicans. In this case we're going to say Well when it says the president shall be removed. That means the president. There's only one of them at a time, and Donald Trump is not the president. Besides removal. The you know an impeachment is the Constitution's main methods for removing a president who's committed some sort of serious misconduct. Removal is irrelevant and Donald Trump's case because he's been out of office. His term expired on January 20th. So Republicans were going to say, Why are we having this big trial to remove a president who is already gone? And Democrats are gonna say well, there's an additional penalty. An impeachment if if someone is impeached and convicted, the Constitution says that punishment will not go beyond shall not extend further than two removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States. That means a federal office like the presidency or senator member of the House. So Democrats going to say that the president's the former president Trump's actions were so serious in the first couple of weeks in January That he must be forbidden from ever holding office again. And that's what the big fight is about. And what you there the way you phrase your question, I think is correct, Which is I think there's some Republicans were going to say, Look, we don't even have to get to the merits of this case. That is whether the president incited insurrection because it's just a fact You can't impeach Ah, president who's already Out of office and they might make the argument is well, Byron even if there are people arguing, yes, they can write. It is legally permissible. They might summer arguing that you and people can come back and say OK. For the sake of argument. Let's say yes, you can do this. And obviously that mean the trial's gonna happen. So it looks like the process of Lisa's moving forward. There's also the prudential question of, should you it does is there A good reason to do this right if he's already gone, and for for some who are very critical of trump on what happened after Election Day, all the way through January, 6 in particular. Touchstone. There is going to be accountability and then for others, it's going to be okay. Whatever you think of what happened, And to be sure, Trump acted badly. And maybe we could have discussed a censure. But why are we wasting all this time to remove someone from office who is already removed from office because his term expired? And I guess you know you want to maybe get to 67 votes, which I think will be very hard to do to convict the guy to then bar him from office, which only takes a bare majority, but the prerequisite is conviction. On and you can also Debate whether or not that's the right decision there as well, because, you know, I think I've been very critical of President Trump on what he did what he said the lies about the stolen election and fostering the environment that lead To that violence in the siege on the capital, But I also sort of feel like if voters decide four years from now that they want him back. I kind of believe that should be up to voters in the United States right to to the citizens of this country, as opposed to up to, you know 51 or 50 senators, plus a tie breaking vote. That's sort of how I'm wrestling through some of these questions on I just wonder on the threshold question. Byron of whether or not this is Even allowed it. All right. I've heard arguments on both sides. Constitutionally of this. There's on Lee one tiny precedent right in today involving a non president who resigned from a position of power. Tell us about that and how it might be relevant here or how it might not correct. First of all, we should say that there is no precedent at all for this in the sense of former president being tried from people's just never ever happened, But they do point to a case of a Cabinet officer, a man named William Belt. Knapp, who was the secretary of war in the 18 seventies and the Grant administration. He was accused very credibly is guilty as hell probably of financial corruption. And so on. On this day that put the house is scheduled to vote to impeach him. And a couple of hours before the scheduled vote. He goes to the White House and resigns. He goes to President Grant Any resigns, and then he says, Well, hey, you can't impeach me. I'm a Warmer official. Well, the house went ahead on impeached him, and then it goes to the Senate, and there's a big debate over well, he's a former official. Can we impeach him or not? And they have a vote. And that's a it's a majority vote of the majority says Yes, we can him impeach him. So then they have a five month trial pretty long deal and he's acquitted because you know that you have to get to a two thirds vote to convict and they didn't get to that. And the reason they didn't get to. It was that there were a lot of senators who believe that it was not in their jurisdiction that he was a former Um, a former official and not in their jurisdiction. So is maybe not about it was not about the guilt on the merits necessarily was about Should we be doing this here? Under these auspices for this purpose, given the fact that this former official is indeed former. So this sort of vote the votes against conviction on that principle rather than the facts of the case. Correct. I think he was. There was consensus that he was guilty of what he's accused of. Now, here's the thing. So that is the one president that Democrats will point to here. But there's a lot of other presidents of officials either being impeached or being threatened with impeachment or impeachment has begun. The process has begun, and they resign and then Congress just drops it. Most of all, obviously the biggest issue. Biggest example of that is President Nixon, who resigned in 1974 ahead of impeachment. But most impeachments in this country involved judges and there've been like close to 50 judges who are either under investigation or impeachment had begun. And they resigned. And then nothing was On, even though his judges they could possibly hold a position under the United States in the future, But they were like qualify. Alcee Hastings opted. Alcee Hastings is a Democratic congressman from Florida. Who is himself an impeached federal judge for bring a bribery and corruption. I believe if memory serves, and he was able to then move on and run for the house and women, and he's been there ever since. He was in peace and removed but not banned from holding future office and the voters in Florida decided to send him to the house. And there is so there you have that there are these two questions. There's There's yes, there is one president in the belt nap case before impeaching a former Cabinet secretary. But then there's all these other examples like dozens of examples of Congress deciding to drop an issue once the person has resigned, and by the way, you'll you'll hear Democrats say, Well, gee, if we don't Try President Trump. Then president resigned right before impeachment and escape all punishment, as if resigning is not a rather large punishment for president. You might wanna ask Nixon about that. But the fact is, that's not even an issue in the Trump case because he did not resign. He served out his full term terminated at noon on January 20th. And now he's the former president.
Donner Memorial State Park

And that's exactly what happened to donner memorial state park in the winter of eighteen forty-six the previous spring eighty-seven people from the donner and read families. Embarked on a journey from springfield illinois heading west to california brothers. George and jacob donner hand carefully planned the route with james reid but poor leadership and a series of missteps led the men to make few errors. The i was the decision to take the hastings cutoff and untested shortcut that put the travelers behind schedule in fighting heavy wagons and exhausted animals. Slow them down further by the time they traipse through the sierra nevada's winter at already begun and with it of fatal snowstorm. Thompsons hands trampled. She rang out the rag. The snow she'd melded onto it had been warm just moments ago but the wind had put the fire out now. The cold wet cloth was stinging her fingers still. She squeezed the water into her husband. Georgia's mouth moistening his dry lips but he didn't move he hadn't for days he just lay there chain of obligation fastened to her ankle. Tanzim had been against this journey from the start she'd been happy in illinois they'd be well off with a sprawling home in happy children. She had done a teacher there but he wanted more. He insisted on california and thompson could say nothing. Why are meant to nod politely. Even as they watch their husbands arrogance lead eighty plus souls into health and then a month ago. Hope had come. A rescue group had broken through the snow. Georgia been battling ethan. Dan so she'd sent her children. Were the rescuers to brave the wintry pass and get out of this nightmare. Take the children. She said she'd stay waiting out starvation with him. Because that's what whites were supposed to do. They stood by their husbands even when a doomed them. Now george was dying and she'd be all the whole thing had been selfish of him. But that was george always onto the next thing with no thought for anyone but himself her mouth twisted bitterness. Blame was the only feeling stronger than hunker. The wind shuttered the tent blowing open. It's flab with it. A torrent of snow flurries blue inside outside. Tamsin could see dim sunlight shining on the oppressive white woods. The evergreens were tall thick and laden with snow. Tencent thought that it looked like a cage. If ice she rose slowly to pull the flaps shut then looked at george i g shuttered. Then he lay completely still is is open and unseen. She held her hand under his nostrils.

Netflix's Q3 demonstrates the dreaded 'pandemic pull-forward in demand'
"Netflix's just reported in its worst ever earnings MISS INVESTORS BANS quarterly results from the streaming giant Jillian. Boston's on the West Coast this morning joins us with what went wrong in Q. Three. Was it Netflix's or wasn't the analysts Julia? How well expectations that were certainly high and then? Netflix shares today we see them plummeting on the biggest earnings myths and snatch flicks went public those earnings falling nineteen percent short of those analysts expectations now with Netflix. Of course, always about that subscriber number, it fell short of the companies already lowered expectations the company outages two point. Two million subscribers in the quarter in guided the addition of fewer subscribers in the fourth quarter then anticipated. Now, that's not all looking ahead to next year. NETFLIX's warns of some very tough comparisons but co-ceo hastings saying he's not concerned about competition we compete. So broadly, we compete for time against you know tiktok to as well as HBO as well as I tell really, the limiter for us is you know what's the quality of our service How often how many nights you say Oh my God I want to go to Netflix and and watch the next show. In contrast to Netflix snap shares soaring after beating expectations about twenty one percent beating expectations really across the board snaps revenue growing fifty two percent more than double the growth rate than analysts projected with a surprise profit of one cent per share that's compared to the five cents per share loss than analysts anticipated. Now, Becky what's really interesting here is that snap has really benefited from Kovin pushing advertisers to try their augmented reality ad formats and also guys there was a subtle dig at facebook sounds like they may have benefited from that facebook ad boycott well. Julius stay here we want to bring in another voice to the conversation as well. Rich Greenfield joins US right now he's of course, partner and Co founder light said partners and I want to start with Netflix's first. Then we'll get back to the snap story, but but Netflix, you say the real story here is that the bear story is gone. What do you mean these are disappointing numbers, but it does come after a very strong first-half for the company for for a subscriber ads. Yeah. Look look I heard the commentary that you were just talking about in terms of like the biggest. History of Netflix. But remember this is a company where again people are very focused on the subscriber trends and the subscriber trends in the first two quarters far out seated in terms of the beat far outside at Amiss here I think the real story that people should be talking about is that not only are they generating substantial free cash flow this year, but even next year as production is in full swing again, they're talking about that they may be at break even free cash flow and so the financing the sort of the bear thesis on Netflix for years was that they. Don't have the money to finance all of this content they're going to run into capital, they won't be able to finance. They won't be able to raise capital and that was sort of the the the bear thesis that's been ongoing for years and years. They're basically self financing now. So the view that Netflix has a capital raising issue is now gone, and if you start to look out over the next few years in terms of their pricing power and you're starting to move up price in Canada recently in Australia, we think the US will happen either in or early Q. One. Pricing Power and all of a sudden you don't have any cash flow needs in terms of having to raise capital. This thing's going to generate dramatic free cash flow and you're going to see the scale to billions and billions of free cash flow a year. That's what people should be talking about look beating lieutnant missing numbers is never a good thing for stock I get why it's down today make sense that it's down at Ted a huge run this year but I think this is more about consolidating as it continues to move higher. into. The point I think the company said on the call that if there had been another forty eight hours in the quarter, they would have met their projections or even exceeded some of the projections on this. But but when you see a pullback of about five point, three percent today does that represent a buying opportunity to you given how much the stock is already run this year? Absolutely because I think the thing that you need to be thinking about Becky is when you think about what's happened over the last sort Of like six weeks, what's really become clear one, the pandemic isn't just disappearing. You're seeing it flare up again in the US you're seeing flare up across a lot of Europe it even parts of Australasia like this is not going away. So we're all going to be more homebound or in terms of you know kind of entertainment activity for a longer period of time unfortunately over the course of the next six to nine months at the same time, the movie calendar has cleared out like all of the movie studios have. Essentially delayed all of their content two, second-half twenty, twenty one if not into twenty, twenty two, and so the path for Netflix's the runway has been completely cleared. They were going to be putting out movie after movie they've got a Ron, Howard movie hillbilly comes out in a few weeks an animated feature over the moon there's just a ton of content coming and really no competition and so I think that's GonNa really well,

I'm also fascinated by this Diablo Canyon power plant that I didn't know existed that is mere miles from one of the most beautiful parts of California that I love. When I have free time? Have you heard of it before? No, I haven't but it's A trip out there next time you're on A. It's interesting. It's. San Luis Obispo. Yeah. And south of there has pismo. Beach north of there is more obey an in between sort of this vast area, of inaccessible beach. Inland. And this can this powerplant is right in the middle of that? Inaccessible area. So I, don't even know. So next time you're up there surfing, you could fit in little POW plump, visit. Yeah I'm very curious about this place I just said I didn't think for some reason I thought California had no operating. Nuclear power plants I. Don't know why thought that well or is. It feels like an California, thing to have. To know have. I guess except we all kind of know that even though. Sucked like it's kind of our best shot at. Pretty Clean Power. That's it's. It's like the you know the stat that plane travel is substantially safer than driving the people are scared of getting on a plane and it's just because. Plane Travel. So unnatural when it goes wrong, it's spectacularly wrong, right? And I think it's the same UK Paulo where. It's substantially safer on average loads of other types of power generation and better for the environment because it's Doesn't generate nearly as much global warming. But also when it does go wrong it is. Yeah half of a continent can end up coveting in. Dust. It's the. Say That I do appreciate the California if it does have a working power plant in the Diablo Canyon. Put It away from people as opposed to Britain where most of their nuclear power plants you can just see train station that that's literally intake is inexplicably close to the smokestacks and makes you incredibly uncomfortable Every time you're that well. That's also because Britain. There is no part of Britain that isn't near to the towns. Like maybe if you go right up into the highlands of Scotland. Put them all there. There there isn't. There is no. None of this no middle of nowhere. I agree with you. We we just don't have it in the way that America. Doesn't particularly Kinda does you have The population mostly no have. Yet candidate. It's a big landmass by far than America and a tenth of the population. Yes. Absolutely. Totally agree with everything. You're saying I, but I still don't think you should put the trains. There's at least two translations I can think of where it's like it's a thin elementary school sized fence and then you're stood hit on the grounds of a nuclear power plant just. So, I can't see it like put a Hilbert do something. Just, grow some us to to say it's one of those things where it's like, you know there's a certain safety precautions do nothing like. The. There's certain things on a airplane where it's like Oh. The crash position is probably going to do fuck hall, but it will make you feel better as the airplane crashing like. It's you know let me live in my ignorant fantasy world. I wonder whether the crash position must the break. The brace position must have some effect. Unless it's just a stop you from getting up and fucking around and getting rid of one of those like. Fight Club style books that wasn't played fight club that it's done in such a way that if you hit the ground and actually kills you so that you're not then just survivor. I I heard that before but I'm almost certain that is percents. Of Death Reeks of just like Shitty gen-x nihilism. crushed it's going to take you out man. Also, what would be the advantage of that? You. Who's designing this thing? Just going like well, we could have some people who survive in a coma and just are. Paralyzed maybe but no, I think it's better if we just kill everyone. Just. Do this again it's. Just ensure that it was. Just, fine with ignorance and I like it like I did know that nuclear power is actually very clean. I liked it nuclear power plants are away from in California and I don't like seeing them in Britain and I know that we shouldn't be. comfortable with certain with any type of ignorance. But I'm fine to be ignorant of wear something that is a symbol of. Nuclear Dust Spreading across the country I'm just fine if that's hidden from view sometimes, they just don't need I don't need to know where does. This place gets this. Table One is pretty well hidden. I was just doing some research and it's the only operating nuclear power plant in California also the biggest producer of power..

"Like So and then we'll. We will learn all about. The shifting statistics of our world come November third. Yep. The biggest moment of me is like first of all I think it's so funny to look at the news right now and see everyone just. Get would people get mad that someone wishes a bad thing? Well, it doesn't matter because which aren't real. There's no magic so The opposite of thoughts and prayers if someone is hoping the President Dies It's not a story to report on that look how awful left. It doesn't matter what I hope I can't force it to happen hoping for it. But why do hope for it not that it matters because it will impact what happens but I would hope that at least whatever he has is serious enough that he would then just say to the public. Hey, this sucks to go through. The chances of that are so slim because that'd be helpful to public health just have the person at the top say hey, this is serious. Yeah. Although you think it has a very short shelf life this close to the election it makes a difference but the fact that the Prime Minister of Britain was in hospital on a ventilator and then is still just making the biggest up of dealing with the situation. It's true. That's true. Well we generally have shied away from Cova specific science stories, but this is still seem vaguely relevant one that I just put it in the show knows. The just embroiled sent in the apparently neanderthal genes increase risk of serious covid nineteen. That's out Jesse Yeah. How many? How much NEANDERTHAL DNA you have? Modern humans. Do we have decide on the at the toll on the NFL I don't know I always just picked at random. Yeah. Humans Ariana souls could be forgiven for having other issues on the minds when they interbred in the Stone Age says this very right to this study and also, but according to researchers the ancient couplings laid a grim foundation for deaths around the well today scientists have claimed that a strand of DNA that triples the risk of developing severe cove nineteen was passed on from neanderthals to modern humans. The genetic endowment a legacy for more than fifty thousand years ago has left about sixty percents of Europeans off south. Asians. Today carrying these genes. The origins of the Jesus came to light when scientists in Sweden and Germany compared the DNA very sick covid nineteen patients without from the NFL's and mysterious sister group How how do we pronounce this one? Denisovans or Denisovans. In the second syllable butter now. This. Season I think so. Yeah I. think that's it. Sorry. I was getting it. Wrong. Thanks. John. The stretch of DNA the patients more likely to full seriously ill closely matches that collective from in the toll in Croatia. Hugo Zeebrugge. His Assistant Professor at the Carolina is shooting Stockholm said I almost fell off my chair because the segment of DNA was exactly the same as in the neanderthal genome. Zeebrugge and his CO author Savante Pabo. To max-planck-institute of evolution the anthropology in Lake suspects that the genes have persisted in Boston humans because they will once beneficial perhaps helping to fight off other infections only now and face with a new infection has the down site being exposed. It's unclear how the genes may worsen covert nineteen but one gene plays a role in the immune response. Another has been linked to the mechanism. The virus uses to invade human cells. We're trying to pinpoint which gene is the key player or if there are several key players. But the honest answer is we don't know which critical in covid nineteen. This study was published in nature says the cluster of genes on the chromosome. Chromosome three. That's a good chrome we like that one. The most commonly found in Bangladesh with sixty three percent of the population carry at least one copy of the DNA sequence. Didn't Bangladesh was neanderthal heavy. The genes in this region may have well have protected the answer tolls against some other infectious diseases that are not around today A. now when we face with a noble coronavirus, these genes have these tragic consequences. The research who led the international team that I is decipher the neons whole genome in two thousand, Ten said his rough estimate was that about one hundred, thousand additional people have died so far in the car pandemic Ju to this genetic combination contribution from the neanderthals. About ten percent of all the destined, right? Yeah. I'm bringing up the stats on Bangladesh's. Cases and whatnot we now trying to. Trying to think of what shape is brow is how do I think he has a big brown he hasn't got a like. Oh trump. Yeah. A person who Houston I would say that brow jets. You think it's a big brow. Bushy Brow- but I think it's an overhanging brow. It's often furrow matter. Rate. Interesting thing I find about genetics and stuff like that is that. So it's ten. It's could be ten percent of the deaths, but also couldn't be also one of those things where. There's a thousand other factors as well. That could also prove that it. It's just pure circumstance that's the temporary again. Will you you might be right in this school even says Mass Lynn a professor at Ucla and author of the book the cradle of humanity cautioned that the work wrist oversimplifying the causes and impact of. COVID nineteen is a complex disease the severity which has been linked to age gender ethnicity obesity virus load amongst other things. Yeah. But it's it's interesting thing. I think now that people's relationship with science because of the Internet being. We still have that relationship with the Internet is sort of still looked at as a newspaper reading, and so it's like what's in the newspaper, but it's like one guy being like Alexander Tiles are going to get a baby like people are like fine. Migrate Gregory Gregory Grandfather Con. So I come from a different genetic heritage like it's just one of those things where it's like it could be true but it also could just be a random disease that no knows no master and we'll just choke you to death anyway. Boy Matt Been Thinking about this neanderthal enter toll thing. I just really wish there was some way of definitively finding out how to how to pronounce it just don't want to be wrong anymore. Yeah, and even find out some things other than just the pronunciation of that would like maybe some other scientific facts about how the DNA of. That species fits in with us. Wait is. Hold on a second. Have you heard of great courses plus I have heard of it. Don't they sponsor property science teams they do they do it turns out they have a course that is called unlocking the hidden history.

"Hello and welcome to probably science by Andy, would I'm Matt Cash? we joined this is a another international guest although listen to national than lost intentional cast is the very funny and very Canadian John Hastings. Very Canadian I just beat a club to death with the. Law mandates that you have to say hello in two different languages. You Are you're in Montreal right now, which is substantially more French than I was expecting when I went there the first interesting. Yes, it is. It's. It's. It's very French for non-french people and then France French people don't think it's French enough. Right, because they incorporate English to their language and they have peanut butter, which if you know anything about France, they're very against peanut butter. weirdly. I was not aware of that and I spent quite a bit of time in front of the as yet. Notice no peanut butter anywhere for people that love a pastry. You never see peanut butter included like if you put peanut butter on a croissant, which is an absolute treat. Be Parisians will lose their. Minds. Looking for the, French word for mind. Tech. I, catch up is, is like verboten anybody with I guess like any high class any foodie but I assumed the French also but peanut butter just seems like almost like. A. Delicacy or at least almond butter is right yeah. Again, it's an interesting thing about different cultures and the things that aren't accepted. There's a fair amount of British people that can't get behind the peanut butter and jam. Sandwich we can confirm tonight with Matt Kirsch now. That's true. That's very much seen as an American thing and we like to keep it on that side of the Atlantic. Because it delicious sandwich. Why wouldn't you enjoy delicious lovely. Peanut butter engines in exactly so easy. So any ingredients? So He's I did I we went on a family holiday to America when I was a kid and I did come back with this is like information from my friends. Is. You've got to check out this recipe that I'm bringing back from from my travel. I was told that it was because in Britain, you guys don't mix sweet and savory, which is a pretty noticeable thing actually. I don't know if that's true because. One thing that surprised. My. American. Half is when we went to the cinema are in England and. You have a choice of salty or sweet popcorn off fifty fifty. Yes, and that's not an American and that's very much a salty and savory savory and sweet comeback Dexter. But the popcorn at the movie theater is a very American thing. 'cause I was told by my one of my best friends, his family is from Leeds but he grew up in Canada but you're supposed to get ice cream at a movie theater not popcorn which I think is. Nice Was that hang on I'm pretty sure. We always have popcorn his kids. From London because he's from the North who the hell knows to get up to over there. Yeah, I wouldn't have thought. Okay. Northern listeners is that a thing I know I remember If you go to the theater particularly, if you go to like a kids show but even adult shows, one of the things that they will sell the concessions in the break in the intermission. is like interval ice cream and it's the little self contained tubs with. Know the little tubs where inside the lid is a spoon or plastic sometimes but normally wouldn't. Eat Ice Cream that tastes a bit of would. Yes. That's just has this would flavor just permeates the ice. Cream. Because that's where you can taste. And it's about sort of half. A third gloss worth of ice cream in this little. Frustrating amount of ice cream. Yeah. So that's definitely a thing that we would get. But that wouldn't be a cinema thing that would be much more going to like the Pantomime Oda. Or the kids show. Being signs pod has I. Don't think there are enough biologists and psychologists alive to actually explain the purpose of a pantomime or why people enjoy why it's such a big thing in Britain and yet America that usually love train wrecks of culture have ignored VAT and let's all be. Let's all be thankful that the pantomime does not made it across the pond. For Good, we've talked we've talked about this. So many times in its endlessly fascinating to me. I still don't quite get. You've answered this question. We some some of the some of the viewing is ironic. Well I, it's. It's doffed family fun. Like. It's silly family fun. There's A. It apparently evolved from Kameda Delta. Stuff but no one cares about that when they're choosing what to do on their Saturday afternoon. No you going there being like someone who was on home and away. A woman who was on home and away dressed boy and. Someone else who was on the bill dresses, a woman and. You're picking way too classy of a television show for a usually it's literally like Jerry, Springer and Bret the Hitman Hart are Hansel and Gretel, and it's A. Also. The thing that they always do when you try and call them up on the pantomime is they do exactly the Family know it's weird. But what they never talk about which is the weird part is it's a Christmas thing but never about Christmas, it's never like. Baby Jesus. It's always like it's treasure island with David Hasselhoff and Tommy Lee. Well there's a bunch of status. There's a bunch of standards and then normally based on classic, fairy? Tales. Snow White Aladdin. Cinderella. Treasure. Islands a big when you see. And Babes in the wood. The other thing that Matt is, of course skirting, which I don't know has been discussed on this program will discuss it. We can talk about science is the fact that Britain as well as it's the home of some amazing alternative cutting edge comedy is also the home of like comedy that would make the proud boys go. Boo, that's a bit far and those people. Who are still very popular and they are always in pantomime, they'll give you guys want to lose your head go Google Roy Chubby Brown or Jim Davidson, and you'll be like this is from the seventies and you're. was recorded six months off from this. That that is that is true but I will point out though that those pantomime those shows are ones that built specifically as Adult Pantomime and like, Oh, the risk of ooh he's going to be condescending to a homosexual come. See Jim David. I'm not gonNA defend the in any way the level of here on that it is a pulling, but it is also that's not the one that.

"Everybody's listening to that, right. What other tidbit that was kind of interesting from the story it was so interesting, it was written down in the source material two or three of William's horses got killed underneath him. He would just stand up off the murdered horst dust himself off and find a new one like a ten, sixty six. Mr Bean. We'll sure. But by the end of this thing, he owed like three different people as Kingdoms. I. It's these feigned flights and the death a herald that bring about the end of the battle, the sources, and the by you tapestry are not clear on how he died about twenty years after the battle it's reported that Herald got hit in the eye with an Arrow, do it and. And that may have gotten taken out. On the street quote. Shows a figure holding an Arrow sticking out design next to a fall in fighting. Over both statement here King Harald has been killed and. Somebody like moving up and down the arm. One Contemporary Accounts as Herald Fighting William on the battlefield but that's Total made a bullshit. Regardless. His death was again a real turning point in the battle and is leaderless army pulled off a retreat a real retreat during which a lot of men were killed somewhere between two, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, five, hundred men on the English side died that day Harold Godwin Sins Loyal House members gathered around his corpse and fought to the end. There's a lot of factors on why Harold, Godwin's and lost that day he had a superior position and he probably would have one of his troops hadn't gotten greedy. And chased after the fleeing Norman's either way as commanders did not stop that and that was a huge factor, his army also just fought a battle in the north two hundred miles away two weeks prior and that battle he hauled asked to get to. So his army was moving twenty plus miles a day or fighting at the time, and he also did not have the cavalry archers that William had. ooh season one more question for you. Okay. your sources agree on the extent to which the archery ratio was. Awesome. Thank you for asking heath while a lot of sources downplay the use of archery in the battle. A few sources up play the use of archery on Harrelson's. An Arrow to the face And mattering for sure as a factor in his death after the battle heralds mother is purported to have offered her sons weight in gold if autumn was give her. Dead Body Back William refused and either chucked into the center. Cliff nearby see she should offered Williams weight and gold we know that. Does Williams. got. The by. As of today they have no idea where he's buried or what really happened to his body that we should really care at all because once you squish the life out of it, bodies really aren't all that useful but they really do spend a lot of time talking about this in the article man I don't fucking hate anybody so much that I wouldn't happily tread their vanquish cyclops for a couple of hundred pounds of I would trade everyone in this call for three buffalo nickels in stick of. Weight, in behold. After the battle, the English didn't just give William the throne either the powerful nobles that were left nominated and crowned a new guy. So William Basically captured and burned his way all around London securing supplies and raising the land until people there said okay cool your new guy on Christmas Day in Westminster Abbey and ten, sixty, six William the bastard now with a much cooler nickname William the conqueror was crowned King England William the conqueror had pulled off a feat that would not be repeated for a thousand years. He conquered England from the outside. Now, you totally need emigrants to do that you can't. That or you need a bad cough you picked up in Wuhan. Or Five G.. C. So what's going to happen twenty, sixty six? What do you know? And just like an immigrant William refused to learn the language brought all weird culture with them I mean, England had its share of influences throughout the ages, the celts, the Romans, Anglo Saxons, the Scandinavians, all these forces conquered England and change that culture into something of a melting pot getting your ass kicked. But now William Ads Normandy to that. ADDS France to the culture via exactly absolutely up twenty years after he ascended the Throne William, the conqueror was killed by a saddle in a tragic horse. No Written, caresses. He's riding the horse. It rears up the Saddle Horn, hit him in his huge chunk or gut, and it gave him an internal injury. The died a few weeks later after his death they didn't have like piano sized coffin and they tried to shove them in the one. They had like a running late traveler repacking their suitcase at the. Whatever? That did not go well and his body blew up quote spreading a disgusting Odour throughout the church. Okay way to go dignity in retrospect doubling down on top of the carbon was a bad choice. Agrees opener window. William the conqueror is the ancestor of more than twenty five percent of the English population. Every English monarch from him to Queen Elizabeth is his descendant and many people believe that ten sixty six is a real turning point in English history with no more Scandinavian influence on the throne and a new Norman King England paid more attention and was far more involved in mainland European politics and the events than they ever were before and that would remain. So until Brexit. If you had to summarize what you've learned in one sentence. What would it be? splurge for a bigger casket I guess would be. The right APP. You. quit. Yeah absolutely. Yeah. 'cause me on the history of white people go ahead. All right see. So William, the bastard is obviously a great nickname, but which the following is a real nickname for other leaders in history. I Stein, the Fart to. The Charles. The great asparagus the go. See I've are the boneless. I. GotTa Say Against Because I want it to be true is tied.

Hopelessly. Out of breath I'm. A very accurate. So William Lands and he starts to basically take shit over builds a wooden castle hastings, and then he starts to pillage. Now, this kind of pillaging is pretty strategic I it feeds his army, but it also denies that resource to the enemy also show some serious weaknesses on heralds part if he can't just put an end to that, shit, it's weird convincing I'm strong enough to protect you from me is. I feel a little nervous buddy wouldn't castle I feel like someone needs three little pigs refresher. I'd. Hey Castle didn't do well. So while William trying to gain a foothold in the south of England, Herald God. Winston. is on his way back to London after defeating the invaders up there and he finds out Williams landed. Now keep in mind that his trip just marched almost two hundred miles about four days before fought a knockdown drag ass battle with fifteen thousand Norseman, and now they're marching back again to get back to London because the force marching a bit of slack and he could only covers twenty seven miles a day instead of forty five still walking that much in a day would not make for a well rested army. Okay. Everyone great fight with those vikings who formed Voltron even though they didn't have any armor on. The, real? Army? Ha. Heralds army made an attempt to surprise William but the scouts warned him that Harold was approaching and and he left his new wooden castle to meet Herald on the field of battle at hastings nine hundred and fifty four years ago today. Nice. All right seize largest a question for you though. I was the slope of the battlefield. Thank you for asking he? Really. It's very nice you to ask the battlefield was actually quite pitched. It was in favor of Harold, Harold was on top of the slope and he had the high ground Williams men would have to climb it to attack, and that was gonna be an uphill battle I had to say it but William did not WanNa wait Harald's Army was not at full strength. Thank you only heath and I. Drink. As not all of his troops came back from Stamford Bridge and in fact, some of his troops still hadn't come back from when he set them home before at the battle of Stamford Bridge and the longer William waited the more troops we're gonNA fill in the ranks, God. That's like the worst like I'm going to have to ask you to come in on Sunday coordinating. Really is really okay. I'm curious gun got another question for sure. Any chance there's a quilt made by a five year old the top. Of the archery power. Either is absolutely There was a lack of archers on the English side that was according to sources to a couple sources as well as the by Utah five-year-old's blanket yeah great. embroidered cloth really asked Noah. Please Way and Trying. To get back those taps. Thank you. Are Pigs picture on dropped six thousand dollars. So we owe. So. Much money now. William had some archer. This is back to the archers thing William had some archers and cross crossbow but herald did not the archers in this battle actually don't play a huge role like they didn't Agean core. It could be that the reason that there's so few archers on the English side is that he might have. Sent one those people home before everything kicked off right? They're like, no no no we have long distance weapons. It'll be fine. We be home. I can work from home during you. Join. The battle by Zoom Norman's set up at the bottom of the hill and they marched upward toward the English Both of these armies had set up a shield wall the Norman archers let loose, but they were shooting uphill, and that makes it hard to arc the shield wall with a lot of accuracy. So the Arizona blocked by the thick wooden shields that were of the defending army when the to shield walls clashed the defending forces attack the invaders with thrown weapons, javelin sticks whatever would fly. Bucket sand. I'm. Sure I'm not sure this had much effect, but it was important enough for the sources to note at least in several places. At a certain point in the battle rumor starts that William, the bastard is debt. So when the rumor finally reaches William. Takes off his helmet and he rides back and forth behind his lines to show his troops that the rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated. The next day's riding around naked see it's average. I. It seems weird that they're even opportunities to share gas on the battlefield. We Really Ironic got an Arrow in the neck while he was doing that. that. One Dad. But I Stands the cavalry at that point had up to the hill to try to punch a hole in the line, and it also fails at a certain point in the battle, the invading Norman Cavalry decide to fall back a little when they do the English troops think they're retreating because they're being out. Now, this could have been because the troops were conscripts and they were inexperienced in some way but they start to chase the retreating norman's and they fall out of formation basically leaves them susceptible. The troops charged forward were quickly dispatched side rookie move. You don't break your voltron before you conjure the giants Space Sword. That's. Exactly off seeing that this works once William decided to do it again this was after a break. This is a quote from wikipedia article that I love quote a low probably occurred in early afternoon and a break for rest and food would probably have been needed. End. Quote and I wonder who the halftime entertainment was for the. Cher. Gall I love considering the logistics of that. Had to be the first to suggest it right. Guys weren't going to be fighting all day. All GonNa be. Hungry. You don't let me get low blood sugar to you. I mean. What I I love the idea of. Like. Setting their weapons down where they were and then they go back and pick up where they. Could call. This far. Yeah. So William Orders of feign retreat from the cavalry a couple times, and it works the defending forces. Think they have this one, the invading armies on its heels, and then Bam we just killed all your fucking charging dip shits take that. You hours later, the entire English armies just covered in tar sitting in a briar. Patch. Nailed it. No doubt you have to understand. This is how the sources are depicting nece of feigned flight I. Mean. It could very well be that the troops started to get routed and they flat in another contingent of them or those same troops able to make A. Bob Ross happy accident but the sources say it was planned. This was however a tactic of the normans at the time of the battle as thinks. So many historians agree with the source material as anyone else picturing a somehow more nerdy sel yelling at a badly drawn blanket..

"Going steady or? Regrets. I guess some branded Merch if I'm allowed to. Now in order to get across the channel William, needed ships, any needed lots of them. It wasn't just going to be carrying his troops, but he also had to carry their horses in all the noncombatants that support an army with horses. But you just couldn't go to the store and buy a bunch of US ships he had to build them. So that's what he did. He started building them, and now that one source puts the number of ships that William built at three thousand. But there is no way that you need three thousand ships for an army of seven to ten thousand troops and a supporting cast. It's like five people per boat. Bullshit and you know they always oversell those things not middle seat left anywhere. Shipbuilding processes a slow one. So it sounds like he got started right away in January after Edward The confessor. Kickin. And he builds all the way through most is September to build enough boats. y'All can't go building a fleet across the channel from England during a succession crisis and just whistle and pretend you're not doing anything Harold Godwin Sin got wind of this and he knew William was going to attack. So he basically camped on the southern part of the island waiting for William to cross what these, but these not do Co. come with these. Are we doing a pro trump lake parade you always? You never have enough trust me because. True Yeah William didn't rush right over. He saw that there was a what was waited it out. Now, some people blame it on the web because crossing the channel in good weather can be a bit Harry in a modern boat let alone an old timey barrel with a sail on it but the timing of a few things makes a lot of people think that this was Williams. Plan all along supposedly he was visited by Taussig who was trying to secure allies to March against England, and it doesn't seem like a big stretch for him to let Harold Godwin Sin and Herald hardrock fight it out and he swoops in and beats up the recovering winner of that fight. Okay. This happened in my game of risk with Eli and Anna it was not free. I told you to go feed off. She has mom she. Escalade hostage situations. Yeah I've your child now Williams army came from his home province of Normandy, of course, but also other regions of modern, day France such as Brittany and also flanders which part of Modern Day Belgium join forces he had about seven. To twelve thousand soldiers, which included one, two, three, thousand cavalry, and they boarded their ships on September twenty seventh two days after the battle of Stamford Bridge and they landed in England on September twentieth. All right. We'll the story on the other side of this break is so damn good. It was worth spending a hundred and fifty percent of sat..

So tell us heath what person place thing 'cause phenomenon or event we'll be talking about talking about ten, sixty, six part to. Battle. Of hats things. Right. So so you read the wikipedia article by which devoured several graphic novel interpretations oversensitive. Are. You ready to finish the tail ready to cure your dose a Blueblood blue balls. But I if you missed last week, you should go back and listen to it because today shows has a lot of references to it. So go ahead we'll wait. I'm not gonNA fucking away you guys should have. Chuck listen. Crushed it last week. So it's insane and it. Took me an entire episode to get to the real part of the story that I lo off with but I learned from watching Noah and hopefully it's going to be worth it here. You didn't learn from what? In the first part of this I mentioned William. The bastard and he's going to be the main figure in this episode and before this is over, he will have done something that no one will accomplish for a thousand years not Napoleon not. He'll not even Hitler. Wow. So according to see so Guy William is more impressive than Adolf. I S. I know this is going to have some European conquering based thing behind it but without that four dollars, that's a weird couple of examples. I mean. Just say that maybe he reach things from the top shelf that could be another thing that he did Chris Offered the throw in on the tip in. So, William was Duke William of Normandy. A son of Robert the. Duke, of Normandy and a woman he was not married to a hence the bastard part his mother was the daughter of Tanner but even though she came from a not so royal background, he still took over when his dad died. And you know his mom was just unbearable about that. Every you saw her right she was just like Oh really his own blacksmith shop. My son is the king now but his own shop good for him. So William was a little bastard. It was also a figurative one to no one would call ambassador to his face one story I read he got pissed that the people were in a town where calling him bastard and this was in a city that he took over and I it's after he got mad because the townspeople mocked his maternal grandfather's professional tanner but either way got pissed and he chopped the hands and feet off of some or all. Just arguing about it technically, he never got stumped Steve. Off. That seems so much shortsighted. Short everything. Share share tax revenue is down across the board in North Pucklechurch unacceptable whereas the city tax collector. He bled out in Deutsche when you cut off his hands and his feet. Yes. That's right. Well, he shouldn't have made fun of me now just hitting Dixon stones that can hurt a man you know this quite right. So you're quite right. Well, what about the assistanct tax collector? He did live but as to drag himself only stumps so. Take quite a bit longer no excuses won't have them. Off His. Knees maybe that will speed him up that I'm sure it will your leader Cya. It's about inspiring. The people my good man inspire. Fuck engine features a boat. On. Let's give bootstrap. What is he going to do? This is great. He's. GotTa Miss. that. He's in his trump paddling with his stomach. Word. So, also, William. was supposedly a total chop like he was made fun of again behind his back about his weight king. Philip of France said that he looked like a pregnant May. Get. He was so self conscious about it that he decided to go on a crash diet that limited his intake of wine to only a certain time of day, and as you can guess, that didn't work out too well and gave birth to a wind baby or as infant. Cancel. Them Pino. No the reason he claimed the throne of England is two fold. The first is that he was related to Edward The confessor. distantly, he was the grandson of Edwards maternal uncle. So grandnephew or something. I. Don't know it's really confusing also supposedly at one point fifteen years before he passed away Edward The confessor offered the throne to William when he and the Godwin's were having a tip. So he had right by blood and by oath yeah. If you thought the problem with James, Charles is that he doesn't have an army to command you're GONNA love this. So. He makes the decision to try to take the throne but he needs to convince his nobles. I mean, the real motivator here is money and land any noble that accompanies into England they're going to they're going to get lands and be able to split the spoils of war but there are also comfortable in their own lands across the English Channel from his shitty time ending in a shallow grave. But the best thing to do is to play to their strengths and that would be great. So he promised them spoils of war and they all agreed to come with them man. So I have to admit the Halliburton. Story writing began a lot earlier. I. He also got up blessing from Pope Alexander the second now the pope is a pretty big deal busy. Have, you suss out the finer historic a each. So thirty years after this, the pope's GONNA call for volunteers for the first Crusade and Europe is going to answer him. So getting the pope's go ahead here is a big deal either got a ring with a hair on it supposedly from Saint Peter's head or he got a banner from the pope that someone could wave in battle. Those those are easy to confuse. But regardless he had the pope's blessing to go be the King of England Dear Hope. Thanks for the ring with the Hair I. Think. I've no idea what's now? Are we.
Media Bundles in 2020
"Are going to. Talk about a article did right September. So we'll pretend this podcast which was twenty bundles and interesting because we've talked about bundles, unbundling it on bundling at multiple times throughout sort of the run here and I think the Queer book end here was twenty seventeen. I wrote the great unbundling, which is mostly focused on TV sort of stuff but I think what's interesting about this post, which was not necessarily about TV IOS about APPS and video. Games and storage and consoles, and all that sort of stuff is i. think that's the big picture take away about bundling and unbundling. The key thing is that when something unbundled and then re bundles that's not gonNA happen along the same value that it did because it was the same vector. Then why don't you just keep sort of the previous Bucknell? So yes, it made sense that sort of the cable bundle was going to unbundle but. It wasn't an essay re bundle as just a video bundle because then why don't we just keep the one that we had originally is you think about it, there s something about the impetus for the unbundling. That is the same impetus for the re bundling, and because it's sort of orthogonal to what caused the bundle in the first place that new bundle is going to look different. Sorry. That was a lot of words that make sense. Does perhaps another framing on this that I thought was interesting in contrasting the two articles. The starting point was for the previous article with a previous set of bundles dominant across society and looking at how tech had come along and kind of knock them out or was in the process of knocking out the cable bundle and how editorial and ads in newspapers of big blown apart by facebook and so on. Oh interesting about this one was this almost felt like with the exception perhaps of Netflix, which is the connection between the two paces, this homeless how bundles or evolving in the new world we talk absent Amazon visa things that didn't exist twenty years ago, but new bundles that are emerging as. These companies in April new kinds of consumer experiences. That's exactly right and you think about those addicted newspaper in the TV bundle which I think are the most obvious sort of bundles from before that sort familiar with, and they are both distribution where'd were repeating about a million broadcast. By you know the newspaper because the you had printing presses and delivery trucks, and you had a multisided market of advertisers and readers you could bundle together lots of different editorial from sports to business to local news do national news with advertising into one bundle, one newspaper and the customers, and by having all those different types of editorial that attracted the maximum sort of audience by getting the maximum audience you. Got The most advertisers and you can see how it was all sort of wind up. The key thing was predicated on that point of distribution and so what happened was once the point of distribution went away that bundle started to fall apart and not just advertising material, but all the editorial pieces fell apart, right? No one goes to a general news site and gets their sports and all sorts of sports sites or they go even better site about their specific team or they go to a specific author, right? Like the degree to which the newspaper has been atomised is remarkable right? You think about it the same things happen with advertising it went from an advertisement in a newspaper that's reaching. Tens of thousands or hundred thousand people to win early per person advertisements that are very finally targeted and you know people get wrapped up in what is targeted advertising what does it mean? You think about it every single one of us as long as there and has been around has been basically viewing targeted content that's tune to ourselves. We are often doing the tuning by deciding what we click on what we read, but it's just as varied as the Advertising is you and I read completely different things even if we have broadly similar interests because we're different people making different choices. Yeah and I mean D- advantage of tech. It was kind of easy to say, I mean you think about even the classified section, which is another one that appealed often you have that in print and it's slow and you've got a raid all these things manually. You just put it on craigslist than you can have this global thing. At easy to have categories whatever, and you can make it free and that was just part of the start of these newspapers having that bundle peeled away completely unbottled, right? Even the different parts of the classifieds went to different companies like craigslist took a lion's share but some stuff went to Ebay some stuff went to wink in recruiting like. Of different places, craigslist was the big one with unbundling happens it's like a shattering effect. Everything is really completely broken apart, right. So just to stick with the newspaper advertising, this sort of bundle that came out of that it was content and advertising that was bundled does not necessarily mean that the bundle that is going to happen in the future. So actually the bundle that actually happened in the case of like. Was People and advertising. They had all the folks on their platform and they got all the advertising. They will put those pieces together, and in that case, sort of the content became completely sort of July zed and commodities. So that's a great example whereas trying to you know with all the Highfalutin words at the beginning is where abundant that formed on one axes in one set of conditions in a different set of conditions it forms a completely different axes is not necessarily going to be the same sort of thing right figuring out like one part of that, and in this instance with facebook, it was what people wanted. And what would hold their attention is the starting point and then once you get one pot can start layering on the others but it's a great point. The way to think about their market is very, very different than way newspaper thing but their market, right a newspaper had sort of default position in. So they had to think about certain maintaining that major the continent appealed to everyone and didn't appear to extreme. You wanted to play down the middle because you know you gotta fill the both sides of the aisle, etc etc. Whereas facebook, you can always go somewhere else immediately like you think about it people anti-trust like facebook. Woke newspapers where I have been awfully, you have anywhere else to go and they didn't want to call attention to that fact. So they were motivated to sort of play it on both sides whereas facebook. The fact that it has a tendency to drive towards extremes is actually evidence of facebook not having sort of monopoly not having a sort of lock in at least as far. As users going to go somewhere else with your time, you go to talk to snapchat and you just go to the web your twitter and they need to fight to keep your attention basically hasn't been offline attention I think is the way to put it and that's different than it used to be previously right the reed hastings let it a shareholder recently where he talked about. How they track and Net flicks loses more folks to fortnight than they do to hbo I feel like it was a really illuminating example. There's a tendency just to view these things narrowly by category. But when you think about it from the customer's point of view and you think about it from the perspective of attention does a better job of driving at the job to be. Done
Netflix adds 26 million new users
"Dot com slash NPR to learn more. Now, as the fight against the coronavirus continues, many people are spending a lot more time at home and that means big business for Netflix. The video streaming giant added twenty six, million new users so far this year pushing it subscriber base to near two, hundred million. CEO Credits the company's Unorthodox. For its rise NPR's bobby. Allen. has a closer look. Unlimited, vacation submitting expenses without approval being promoted for criticizing your company. These are the perks of working for net Netflix says CEO Reed. Hastings it's risky trusting employees as much as we do giving them as much freedom as we do. But it's essential in creative companies where you have much greater risk of from lack of innovation in his new book. No rules rules he's things discusses his guiding principle the keeper test the idea is to ask your boss if I wanted to leave how hard would you fight to keep me if the answer is not very hard, maybe it's time for you to go our culture memos says things like adequate performance gets A. Generous. Severance package but the ruthless culture has some employees constantly looking over their shoulder. One former Netflix's employee told me he lived in constant fear of losing his job and that people of Color didn't feel as empowered to offer frank feedback as his white colleagues. He eventually quit hastings says people of all backgrounds rise in the company. But NETFLIX's isn't for everyone those who feel fear tend to check out because it's an unpleasant feeling. And really it's best suited for people who can acknowledge intellectually the risks. But in fact, they're so joyful about playing with great teammates. There are certainly versions of this that would clearly be completely destructive. Right Jonathan. Knee is a Columbia business school professor and former investment banker. He likes Netflix's culture. He says, it's actually better than what happens in most American offices people are not rewarded forgiving feedback. There's going to be emotions human beings somebody's gonNa cry you know something you just don't want like you know what? Let's just wait this mercilus approach is also applied to shows netflix's produces. Mom, what are we doing here? Your father's laundering money for a Mexican drug cartel where you gonNA wake up to your white privilege man, and then maybe later you can show me how to turn into a bat Yam's kind of Maine I'm obsessed with her. Those were the trailers for Ozark dear, white people and one day at a time all acclaimed shows and all ended by Netflix's in the last two years. However, polarizing Netflix's has taken off like a rocket ship. NETFLIX's big push into original programming with award winning movies and Buzzy shows like Tiger King have made Netflix's prophets speed pass traditional Hollywood studios. We do attribute that to the culture, but hastings admits the culture can be tough even on him. Hastings leadership style was once described as being quote unencumbered by emotion and he told me a vice president at the company wants. told him. He isn't a good listener and he's empathetic which I have say even you know at my level of success, it
Brian Stelter on Fox News
"Brian stelter joins us. Now he is the anchor of CNN's reliable sources, the host of its podcast and the author of a New New York Times bestselling Book Hoax Donald, Trump Fox News, and dangerous distortion of truth Brian. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much. So you used to be my colleague here at the New York Times way back I don't know when exactly did you leave The Times? twenty thirteen. Well. So the moment I remember was in twenty eleven when this early documentary about the Times came out called page one and there was a line in that documentary in which the leat David car says, I still can't get over the feeling that Brian stelter was a robot assembled to destroy me. I, haven't forgot that line. Because I wonder if you're secretly three people you host. A Show on CNN you write a daily newsletter you host a weekly podcast you have two small children, and somehow you wrote a book on this extremely fast moving subject. That is Donald Trump. How did you handle that the two small children is the fun part they keep me saying you know David used to say I still miss him so much used. To say, what do you think the story is that I should tell us to say to sources you know if you were writing the story what would you right and that is what I was doing with folks at Fox News and these themes kept coming up especially last year, which compelled me to go and try to get a book deal I think it. was last that I wanted to do this and more that I felt like someone had too i. hope that doesn't sound too cocky but it's true. There's some things in life. You just feel like the gotTa go tell this story and I think the only untold story of the trump era that's left maybe is the story of his boxers addiction so I did. Carve out time in between my other jobs and and frankly wants the pandemic send us all home. Put us on lockdown just grateful that my wife was able to help with the kids when I was having to finish the final chapters of this book. So what is that story the relationship between Donald Trump and Fox News obviously, it's the full subject of your book. People who are even casual viewers are news consumers are aware that there's a close relationship there yes. I think we all are aware that the president gets fed information and misinformation from Fox but I think it's even more extreme and even more dangerous than people realize it happens more often and the connections or even cozier than than folks realize I oftentimes in coverage. Of the White House reporters leave out what I think is the key piece, the key ingredient, which is he got that idea from Fox. He gained that idea from foxy gained that conspiracy theory from Fox and with this pandemic this year staffers at Fox told me they felt like the coverage was hazardous to our viewers. The coverage was dangerous. The coverage was unforgivable. I really just tried to step away just the Messenger for these anonymous sources mostly anonymous did speak on the record who felt like the coverage is hurting the country. All right. So a defender, a Fox News skeptic cure might say so what trump follows Fox News is leads you know democratic presidents in the past have taken their cues from the editorials editorials of the New York Times. What's the difference? I think. It's so much more intense. Now, Fox's influences constant when trump threatened North Korea, and said, he had a bigger button than Kim Jong Un. It was because of a Fox segment when he grants pardoned, it's because Fox when he attacks big technology company because of Fox, when he raged about migrant caravans, it was because of Fox and it's not that he's getting the best possible information still from the best sources in the world know he's getting it from a bunch of of. Who oftentimes misinform him think? That's one of the differences between this White House and past white houses Braga Obama was he washed ESPN in the evening rather than MSNBC tours w Bush might have watched some Fox but he wasn't consumed by it. The way that this president is so it's an unprecedented relationship really is
Calls to boycott Netflix over French film Cuties
"A controversy brewing on Netflix. It's actually a pretty disgusting story. I remember I saw the trailer for this a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was pretty gross. And apparently, it's It's worse than I thought. There's a movie that is now on Netflix. Called cuties. It's a French movie, They say it's a coming of age movie. But it's about 11 year old girls who apparently want to dance like strippers and dress like strippers in act like strippers and do and the parts are played by 11 year old girls. I haven't seen it. I haven't followed the controversy that closely but somebody who has joins us now it's Christian Toto, film critic and the proprietor of Hollywood in Toto, calm, It's t O T o If you're a conservative looking your way through the entertainment world, that's where you want to go. Welcome, Christian. Well, thanks for having me Thanks for coming back on the show. So cuties. The name in and of itself is a little bit gross, especially knowing what it is. But Explain the controversy. Well, it began with the advertising. There was a poster for the movie that show these 11 year old girls in sexy dance outfits and posing very provocatively. And, of course, that course an uproar. Understandably, so And Netflix that Oh, my gosh, I'm so sorry. This is an inappropriate The movie doesn't reflect us. But this is a very bad poster. Take the poster down with our apologies. And then the movie debuted. Ah, day or two ago, And now people are seeing it. I confess I have not seen the movie, but I've seen enough clip. That that poster Wasn't far off and that there is there's a scene going around Twitter. Gosh, well over a minute, and it basically shows these Three preteen girls in these very mature outfits doing dance moves like like a Miley Cyrus. Like a lover like someone you kill you pay. As an adult to see if they're in the movie. But the brought back the blowback to this I mean some of the reviews. It's one of those movies that this get it. There's a huge disconnect between what the critics say. What's believe in rotten tomatoes like 90% fresh, It's certified fresh and the critics have it about the people haven't about 6%, and it's telling in this UK telegraph headline. Cuties. Netflix Review a provocative powder keg for an age terrified of child sexuality Right there. They're admitting that this is largely about child sexuality. 11 year olds are they not? It seems very obvious. You know, Here's the thing. The movie and the director has said that she is trying to be critical of this cultural movement, and I appreciate that. I think you can tell that story. But he also think you can tell that story with a modicum of her strength. You don't need to see, you know, over a minute's worth of girls undulating to get the message. There are so many artistic ways that you could capture that without showing it aggressively in your face. You can do it in shadows. You could do it in snapshots. You could refer to it but not show it directly, so the fact that it's really on screen in your face force along Is gross and again, you know, I I'm a first Amendment guy. I don't want to censor art. But by golly, you can't see that This is inappropriate. I'm I'm aghast that there are so many defenders. There's apparently nudity of these girls, which again I think anybody who streams this movie should probably be We looked at with a jaundiced eye, but there's also they one of them takes a picture of the their private parts and posts it on line. It is and it's 11 year old. It's one thing if you had, you know, a young looking 20 year old actress playing this But to actually have really 11 year olds to this. It's bordering on child pornography, and they're like the state of Texas. The attorney general has been asked by a legislator there. To look into this. I'm curious. Reed Hastings is the CEO of Netflix. He's got a book out, so he's making the rounds. Hey, did a 10 minute interview. I believe yesterday with CNN. This didn't come up. Has Netflix commented on this beyond the poster would really doesn't reflect what's going on in the movie. They went radio silent initially. But then I believe yesterday they defended the film. So they're on record is defending this particular product. And by the way, you know, we talked all about diversity. And we need more diversity in our culture. And in many ways that is accurate, and I applaud that on some level for sure Don't want to discriminate anyone. Diversity within the film critic community. I'm a critic. I'm up on the right. To say that I'm a minority is can you name another one? But listen, there's about I'd say between five and 12 critics We're on the right and there are hundreds and hundreds who are left of centre and it shows in their report ties, so I don't think there should be a quota system. But if everyone is really concerned about diversity There should be Mork critics of prominence who are people of faith and and you are a conservative Jew who could call out something like it's kind of been the framing of the left defense of this movie Cuties. We're talking with Christian Toto film critic. The defense of this movie has been well as uptight conservatives, then that's almost why it seems like many of these critics like it is because People who aren't big fans of child pornography are against it. Yeah, Yeah, listen, we're living a tribal agent's left versus right. And if anything, even hints at that demarcation, it's game on. But you know, this is this is not been in. This has not been a secret. The movie screened it Sunday. I believe it may have won an award of some kind. I need to double check that. But, you know, listen, finances and very prestigious film festival, probably the most prestigious in the country, and critics have fawned over it. What if that say that the critics really just missed this. I've seen the quick. It's enough. It's really uncomfortable and again. That movie. From what I understand is being critical of this part of culture. And again. I have flaws that you could. You know, that's a message that could be out there. But as an artist, you can share things not share things. You can pull back. All sorts of ways to artistically captured this exact same I go, I go

I spend most of my time on this show talking to you and with my guests about the stories and trends and themes that define business. oftentimes those stories and trends and themes do just that for entire generations. There are only a handful of companies I would characterize as generation defining though these are businesses so integral to the Zeitgeist and the cultural conversation that not knowing about them or the ways they make money is unheard-of. There aren't a lot of them, but net flicks is one the company which you might remember started out as a DVD. Rental Company has become an absolutely integral part of the culture of today it's one of. The earliest and best examples of disruption justice blockbuster. But how did it become a two hundred billion dollar company with more than one hundred, ninety million subscribers worldwide some three times a subscriber count of its next biggest competitor did Netflix's win these so-called streaming wars we've been talking about for the past year and better yet who disrupts Netflix's I'm taking it straight to the source for answer.

Right and a little controversy is good. We like a little healthy controversy every now and then so now let's get into the nitty gritty of the book and of how you built Netflix's from A. DVD rental. Company. To two hundred plus billion dollar company, you have been no building Netflix's into this Juggernaut for many years twenty plus.

Well you caught more than one skinny body. It's a fly sixty feet in nighter reservoir to drop these bombs wants the Germans understood. The way will work.

Come out and I asked him why they'd never attacked the dams again. You said any operation deserving of the Victoria Cross is by its nature unfit to be repeated. Had he was right I well. Let's let's talk about the spirit of World War. Two the spirit of sacrifice and community national spirit. Would you connect that with the views on the on the crown of ours? I think I'll be very careful about comparing it was a different time. It's a different spirit. The one thing that the does having Komo News I don't think you'd ever overstate wartime unity. Buzz in Britain and dare I say Australia. The deep divisions political division swelled to about all sorts of things and by. Let's say by nine hundred forty two. In Britain the competency and Churchill that we say Fallen pretty low. Because you presided over seventy defeats so first of all we shouldn't idealize the wartime spread. And secondly we should realize. This is a different time. What I do think is important. Which is talking about earlier is that we have been incredibly. We've lived an incredibly spoilt existence for so long where we've been sped having to make tough choices and now we are finding ourselves pace with making tough choices and we gotta help each other to do it and partly also we must keep questioning all leaders and politicians. We mustn't give a free pass but on the other hand. I'm we've got to try and help them with making responsible decisions and it may not be possible all the time too so absolute compassion to absolutely everybody because there are some very tough choices coming up. So I'm there is. There are some of the virtues that came out of the war that we're going to need to gain but we shouldn't compare it and do remember. Let's poke kids that generation.

"hastings" Discussed on Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman
"Creating some kind of Olympic Olympic sport within the company here we come to the essence of a strong culture. It serves the check on selfish ambition. It's a civilising force source that exclude anyone. Who will drag down the team? And also welcomes anyone who elevates the tea and short. It's warm but not cuddly and if that sounds a bit paradoxical reed hastings has a clarifying analogy. You'll never hear referred to his colleagues as a family. It's a term harm that visibly greats at him. He Likens Netflix. Instead to a sports team they expect high performance from the players and they use internal collaboration as a tool rule to drive external competitiveness in team. Sports that really succeed. There often is a lot of warmth between the players and so it's emphasizing in those aspects and demonstrating that when people come in. Everyone tries to help them. But ultimately it is about performance unlike family which is really about unconditional love. Even if your brother does something awful and goes to jail. Your love doesn't Stop Okay and that's just a difference an important part of society. But that's not what we're about about what we're about is collectively changing the world in the areas of Internet television and that takes incredible performance at every level. We're also about about really honest feedback all the time so you can learn and be the best that you can be so let it be known that Netflix did not promise. Unconditional love and and they're exceptionally frank about this. In their culture deck which every perspective employees reads this has become a powerful tool for them when the crates built in filter turn to every higher. It's a great hack that other companies would be smart to adopt because the hiring process is a critical but often overlooked part of maintaining company culture. When you're growing and hiring fast it's easy to place expedients over excellence? You'll often find yourself tempted tempted to hire perfectly qualified candidates. Who.

From a mother's point of view. She was always she just work hard no matter what workout you give her. She'll can't do that because she always do it. It wasn't just track and field. It was in her schoolwork. I've never really have to start to say. Let me see you home. Did you home with. She knew at that point. You know this is what she wanted to do in track and field and in order for her to do that she had to have degrade with it. She just woke still look at her now. And I'm like Oh my Gosh. Just had a baby. And she trained literally up until the day before she had him. I never felt pressure from my mom. My mom was always very adamant about me enjoying what I do even to this day. You know after having a kid it's still you know but is this what you want to do? And it's interesting because you know. I mentioned that. She made the eighty four Olympics. She also had the nerve to name me after her. Natasha's my mother's middle name so there was a moment when I was probably like thirteen or fourteen where I felt like. I'm getting to finish what my mom didn't finish. How did that moment? Come to you figuring out. Oh you made the eighty four team. You didn't go. You had me in eighty six. Things were a lot different back. Then where the opportunities in the sport period much less for a woman to make a living in a career out of it was a lot different than it is now. What stopped her at the time she had to provide for her kid. Ho Man Circle this story. Yeah was a struggle but it was a good struggle. Once again Joel Hastings. It was hot. I was a single parent. I mean I I honestly believe everything happens for a reason so it made me a better person. It made me stronger. It made me figure out how I had to just go from day to day today and make sure she had everything she needed and I had a good team around me. I'd never had that feeling of like my mom Shaina leafed through me. My Mom is China achieve what she didn't achieve their means. She has just been incredibly supportive. Just whatever you WANNA do. I'm here you does she. Do you ever have a conversation with her about this. Not that part. I think the the toughest conversation that we had though was in two thousand twelve when and she asked me so. Is this really what you WANNA do? Because if you don't I mean the sky's the limit you can do whatever you WanNa do. She didn't make the team in two thousand twelve. Just the way she ran the race was like when she realized that she wasn't necessarily in the top three she shut them like mentally. She was just like it's done in so when she came off the track. She didn't talk to anybody. She will back to the hotel she cried. We argued and I said okay. You gotta get it out to get it out on me. Then we move on from that so she cried and she cried and then as I said you just look like you want to be there and I lied to. I was like no. I'm good got into but she. She read that it was year after year of just kind of slowly going down and going backwards and then two thousand twelve was like the epitome of like okay. I didn't make the team at all. And that was when I had a real conversation with myself. Like okay girl. We going back to to be a chiropractor. What are we doing? My mom had that conversation with me. The part of that conversation that I left out while she was in the stands at the trial she was actually sitting next to a guy who happened to be a sport psychologist. An athlete has the consider so many aspects of training nutrition recovery sleep mental strength often gets overlooked. But it's what keeps everything else together without a strong foundation. It all falls apart whether it's working through demanding training cycle one event is life changing as a pregnancy. Having the mental strength can make all the difference his hastings once more. He gave me his card and I was like okay. You think she needs that and he said you know. I've been watching you run since she was a little kid and she's better than this when I told her that. You look like you don't believe you belong there. I said look. I don't know who this person is haven't done any research and I don't typically do stuff like that but I just said there's a reason why this guy just out of the blue gave me his called. What was it that flipped? It was your mind that was my mind. I remember the first conversation that we had and he asked me. You know so when you're out there on the track. What are you thinking about in literally? Everything told him was negative. Man The last hundred is GonNa hurt. I can't wait for this to be over. And he was like okay so the first thing we're going to do is change. How you talk to yourself and the second that you have a negative thought I want you to change it to something positive and when I tell this story I'm like man that just sounds so oversimplified but it was the thing that changed everything so I remember. There was a diamond league meet in New York City. It was cold it was raining and I live in lane seven. That's pretty good opening. It was raining and was it Lane Rainy Day and remembering the warmer by literally myself. It's warm it's not raining. The Sun is shining in lane. Seven literally repeated myself. The entire warm-up begun went off Iran fifty point twenty three. That was the fastest. I'd run since leaving college in two thousand seven just by flipping the switch in your mind. That's why old could your mom pick up at something to change. Yeah my mom was there. Of course she always there. She says the gun went off. I took out really fast. Which is that's just my thing i. I run my first two hundred fast when I got to. Maybe about two fifty. She was like she still going. She's still going and then when we came off the turn that's when she was like she lost it. What happens when you go on the track for performance like that lake moments before everybody gets in the block in that time seems to be elongated idea? That's interesting because when I watched other sports and WATCH OTHER TRACK EVENTS. That's the moment that actually like to watch because I think you can almost tell when someone's getting ready to kill it or bomb. It's like a fighter entering the ray exactly exactly for me. I guess I call it a hunting space. That lasts three minutes before the race is the longest three minutes ever. The air is so thick you can cut it with a knife every emotion that you could possibly feel all bottled up into one moment and then the gun goes off and it's like just this release.

With her sights set on her third Olympic Games she was determined to try to the pregnancy. She be out there every day. Adjusting her training regimen working with her constantly changing body, so her son arrives, she could hit the ground running toward the Olympics in Tokyo. At the end of the day itajai competitor in this is a challenge. One, that's he's determined to push through. She's Natasha Hastings. Is what she does. Well. My Body is definitely a lot different than it was. A year ago. I'm tired now, but it's a different kind of tired. I have a five month old. It's not quite sleeping through the night yet, so that doesn't help coupled with the type of training that I'm doing. I was saying I'm definitely not as powerful. As I was, but I've been making new PR's. Seeing those gains in the gym. Is definitely a confidence booster thing, it's like now just waiting for that to transfer over to the track like I don't feel great like tomorrow. I'm going to go out on forty nine. I feel great from the perspective of. I have a five month old. It's January. I'm preparing for June and August. I'm on the right track. Feel Great. Our partner cal I sat down when the Tasha underarms headquarters in Baltimore to talk about her journey. Watching video of you on Instagram? Where YOU PUT UP AN NATHAN POST! Sad debated before I put this up when I was running as I was pregnant. Yeah, why did you debate putting it up there? A number of reasons we can see the belly. Yes I will first and foremost I'm very conscious of the things that I put on social media because I am aware of my reach, and I'm aware of my voice as a pregnant woman running up and down the track. That post in particular there were a few things number one. It was slow as Hick. So. As the competitor in me, I was like man. Do I put this out there like this vulnerable? This is like. I am probably about eight eight nine months pregnant at that time I fully pregnant, fully slow. Thank you. Our on running hard, I was checking my form was. I mean everything that I could possibly do to make it look good. I tried it did look good. It just looked like you weren't going. I wasn't going anywhere. I running in place for sure. then. There was the bit that you know here. I am this eight and a half nine months pregnant woman on the track running, and there are a lot of people that have opinions about it that you should go sit down. You shouldn't be doing this, but then there was also the message that I've been doing this long before I got pregnant, and so long as it's healthy, and my doctor says it's okay. Why should I stop so there? Was that message that I wanted to? Portray, but then also sometimes conscious of the people who don't have a choice. So there are some women who want to continue, but maybe they're high risk. I, may can't. And sometimes I feel like it's almost insensitive to celebrate that I can. So I have that battle much going on. Yeah, there are so many battles within that I have when there are certain things that I post, and particularly the you know coming into this motherhood space in I jokingly said last year was a baby boom. I know so many people that had a baby last year a now, so not people that miscarried. And, so you know to to reach out to those women while I'm currently carrying or just had my newborn and I was struggling with the words for them now I'm thinking okay if somebody had miscarried. In their emotional about it, and now they see you running eight months pregnant. Yeah, yeah, you're putting out a message that you don't even know how. It's going to be interred executive from people. So I baited. Putting that post. Makes Sense. How do you take that forward? To to the birth because training pretty close up birth, how close up to Iran the day before I had the day before the day before I had him, and I went into Labor, and did not know I was in labor I almost had him on my couch. So he goes to the hospital I still think. They're going to stop by Contraction Send Me Home I had my son within two hours of getting to the hospital. WHOA and there was a split second that I. Like when I realized when the doctor told me I your eight centimeters dilated. This baby is coming that I lost it. But I remember. Having a moment where I was like okay, you gotTA. Pull it together. You've been to the Olympics you can do this. This is just like running a race. Breathe push through I did get the Abdul. superwoman! And, what did it? I'm guy. Like your son entered the world. Oh Man, it was awesome. I got to catch him I think the doctor probably Major. He was okay and made me think that I caught him coming out. I was wondering. How are you doing that? But I caught him brought him up. I also didn't know what I was having. I wanted to wait until birth to find out what he or she was. And I remember my mom telling me like they come out screaming, and then as soon as they put you. Put the baby down on your chest. Stop crying. He did that. And then I remember him going over taking them taking him over to the table, and he's there weighing him, and it was like instantly like okay. What are you doing? My eyes off him. It.
