"Pop culture is always evolving, and those changes impact our lives in ways that are both visible and not so obvious. I'm Lucas Shaw, and I cover the business of pop culture for Bloomberg. My job is to uncover how entertainment is changing and explain what that means for you, because context changes how you see things, how you change things. Context changes everything. Start exploring my coverage and more at Bloomberg .com. We're definitely having a reset to a higher actual return environment. This economy has a huge mosaic of factors that are inputs to what's happening in the overall market. That's what we're seeing now. Challenge in the bond market, success in the equity market. This is Bloomberg Surveillance with Tom Kean, Jonathan Farrow, and Lisa Abramowitz. Good morning, everyone. I'm Jonathan Farrow, Lisa Abramowitz, and Tom Kean from New York on radio, on television. Many narratives on this Monday as well. One of them is John Farrow on assignment. Manus Kranie sitting in today adding huge value, particularly off Chevron S with his years in Dubai and, of course, all in the eastern Mediterranean. In this hour, Amory Horton will join us as well as Oliver Crook here on the eastern Mediterranean. But we've got to go to the markets, Lisa, this morning in the Hallmark with Wei Li coming on in moments from BlackRock, a 5 % 10 -year yield. Which a lot of people thought was unimaginable just six months ago. I was in that camp. People laughed people out of the room when they said 5%. Now you have people gaming at 6 % and people don't understand what's behind it at a time where there's otherwise a risk -off feel in the market. That to me is the most interesting aspect given that it is no longer maybe the haven status that it used to be. publishing moments ago 2 .53 % on the real 10 -year yield at 180 I said maybe it'll get to 200.
Fresh update on "horton" discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"Welcome to Real Estate Coaching Radio, starring award-winning real estate coaches and number one international bestselling authors, Tim and Julie Harris. This is the number one daily radio show for realtors looking for a no BS, authentic, real time coaching experience. What's really working in today's market, how to generate more leads, make more money, and have more time for what you love in your life. And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. Julie, I have a question for you. How do you articulate the value you bring when representing a buyer in a real estate transaction, especially considering all of the changes that are happening with regards to buyer agent compensation? That is the question that we've been reading and hearing from every corner of the real estate world, agents worrying about, wondering how they're ever going to explain to a buyer why they're worth paying up to 3% or whatever the agreed upon commission is for the sake of them representing them on a buyer side transaction. And it gets especially confusing, Julie, when maybe it's a buyer that has purchased before, maybe several times before, and they know that always the commission was paid for or essentially covered as a cost of the transaction to the seller. And now it's not going to be the case. So Julie, how does an agent actually make it so that their value proposition is such that the buyer will easily, well, maybe I shouldn't say easily, but willingly and enthusiastically even see the value in paying that commission to the buyer's agent? Yes, well, that is the question du jour. I'm so glad that you brought that up. So today we're going to answer that question. We're going to talk about not one, not two, not three, but top 10 reasons that buyers will work with you and how to answer that question. You know what you do, but how do you explain it in such a way that a buyer understands your value, the required agency forms, and everything involved to make it to the closing table? Now, ultimately, every buyer prospect, every contract, every negotiation is different. But your value should be consistent for all situations and clients. That should make it easier for you. How you conduct yourself and how you present to each buyer prospect should not vary by situation. So follow the same best practices for all prospects in all situations, and you should have nothing to worry about. Many of our coaching clients are already saying that because they've been doing this all along. In fact, you'll become known as a true professional and receive repeat and referral business as a result of doing the best job possible for your clients. Now remember, today's notes, as always, are down below. So if you are on YouTube or if you're over on any of the millions of different podcast listing apps, just open up the show description or click the little thing that says more, and you're going to see all the notes.

OK, so before we get to the top 10 reasons buyers will work with you, a quick side note. It is not enough to just have these conversation points or have these things come out in conversation. You will discuss all of these items and more because we can't present it on a podcast using your buyer presentation, which you do receive in Premier Coaching. This will not only keep you compliant with agency forms and disclosures, but will also ensure your buyer clients see you as the professional that you are. Let's drill down just for a snitch, Julie, on this, unless you do this in your notes. So with regards to a buyer agent presentation, we have taught, well, frankly, we've been using and teaching agents to use buyer agent presentations for two decades. We started using it in our own real estate practice and our own team in the 90s. Because frankly, back then, when the whole ABR thing, accredited buyer agent thing, came around the bend and all these changes happened, it was a long time ago, guys, but the reality of it is that it was obvious to us that there would come a time when the buyer agent commission was no longer going to just be an entitlement to the real estate transaction, a cost that's mostly paid for by the seller. Well, you know, it took a while, a couple decades, three decades almost. But it did feel the same, if you recall back then, where people were freaking out and, you know, now we're going to have to talk about buyer side commissions and now we're going to have to actually present and disclose and all of those things. Well, because what Julie's saying is back in that era, there was a lot of belief that that was actually going to happen. So much so that they changed the rules with regards to mortgages. And by the way, they're going to probably do this again. Back in the, I think it was the 90s into the 2000s, those of you who are in the mortgage industry will know better than me. There was a carve out where you could actually finance your buyer agent commission. That's how much they believed that that was going to be removed as an entitlement to the, you know, the buyer basically and the buyer's agent. But here's the moral of the story is now the market is changing and you need to change the market. That's the point of the buyer agent presentation. It makes sense that you would have in a competitive listing situation, a listing presentation explained that potential seller, all your USP is unique selling propositions. Well, guess what, guys? You need to have the same thing on the buyer side as well. The old story was, you know, and this is, we wrote about this in our book Harris Rules, is that the working with buyers is mostly physical labor. You didn't have to have a lot of sales skills. You didn't have to have presentations. You really didn't have to ask them to sign anything beyond what was required by your state. And then if they found a house, then obviously that paperwork as well. There was no truly, for 99% of you, there was no real obligation from that seller or for that buyer to actually work with you, unlike taking a listing where the seller is going to obligate themselves to list the house with you for the duration of the contract. The new reality is that buyer agents are going to have to operate in the same level of professionalism and the same similar skill set that, frankly, they should have been all the way along, but also mostly similar to what listing agents have been doing forever. Premier Coaching has within a complete buyer agent presentation. You can use it digitally. You can use it as a flip chart, but the point of it is, is the presentation is designed to explain to the buyer what it is that you do and why you're worth what you're asking to be paid, and then the presentation sells them into the idea or sells them into the understanding of the value that you bring. If you're really worrying about how you're going to rationalize to the potential buyers what it is that you're doing to essentially be worth what you're asking to be paid, well, then you need to get the buyer agent presentation. There's no two ways about it. A lot of you are going to be stubborn, and you're going to think to yourselves, well, I'll just make my own. I'll just create my own. I'll just figure out something to do. How many buyers and how many commissions are you going to lose before you realize you should just basically follow the proven path and use what's been proven to work in every market condition, in every price range, in every interest rate environment for the last few decades? Copy what works. And by the way, buyer agent presentation, like all of our content, is always being updated. It's not something that ever stays static. Exactly. Well put. Thank you for clarifying that. So how do you articulate your value? Well, to your point, Tim, you do it through the buyer presentation, but what are some of the things that are included in that? How do you actually explain your value? Well, let's start with number one, actually knowing your client's needs and doing a real drill down. By using a buyer prequalification questionnaire, otherwise known as a script, you'll discover exactly what your buyers are looking for, what they qualify for, where they need to move geographically, what their other requirements are, and any other important criteria. The more you know, the better job you'll do finding them exactly what they're looking for. Now, some of our more experienced agents, and you and I certainly saw this, how many times have you met a buyer at an open house and you ask them, you know, I assume because you're going to the open house, you're not already working with an agent, they'll say things like, well, I've been working with an agent and they've shown me like 20 homes, but none of them are really what I'm looking for. So what causes that? Sometimes agents show only what they know because they haven't, you know, expanded. Sometimes they haven't done the drill down. They don't really know. It's not enough to know, well, they want a three bedroom, two bath. What turns that buyer on and how can you best find that? It's a disconnect. It's the buyer's agent lack of skill, knowing how to actually help the buyer accomplish the goal that they are, you know, of buying a house, right? So ultimately a lot of agents, especially those who choose to work with on the buyer side because they, it's more of, again, it's more of a physical labor. It's more of a social thing that is working on the seller side of things. So they don't actually know how to help buyers make decisions with regards to buying houses. And I'm here to tell you guys, you've never once sold a house to a buyer. The buyer bought the house. So it's important that you understand that. Not because I'm minimizing the value you provide, but because you've got to understand that ultimately you don't have to do anything that's going to make you uncomfortable to get someone to buy a house. They're going to buy the house. As soon as you introduce them to the house, they're going to want to buy it. But the key is, is you have to do it in such a way that they are psychologically able to allow themselves to make the decision to buy the house. And that all comes back down to skills and scripts. And so one of the, you know, there's lots of my mind's filling with like the three times out script, the floor bottle script, Julie's telling me not to give you any of our scripts because it'll take too long. But there are lots of things that you need to learn how to do when working with the buyers. That way you can give them permission to buy quickly. They don't need to see everything that's for sale in a hundred mile radius. And if you're doing that, you're making a mistake and they will fire you, even though they're the ones that are insisting on seeing all those houses, because ultimately you didn't sell them a house. Well, and perhaps you just skipped this first step by really drilling down and asking questions using the buyer prequalification questionnaire and finding out what is the one house. Remember, every buyer is just going to buy one house. You don't have to show them everything. And besides, the better you know what they're after, the easier your search is. You know, a lot of agents have gotten accustomed to only showing what pops up because it happens to be available. The real power of the prequalification, though, is you're going to they won't if you have somebody that's not really serious, they're not going to go through all the questions. That's right. And then you'll know earlier and you won't waste their time or yours. It's like halfway through the script. Julie, I promise I will not do scripts, but halfway through the script. One of the questions is, you know, after they give you the description of what they're looking for, after they've told you how long they're looking, after you've confirmed they're not working with anybody else, after you've asked about their financing, you said this is one of the lines. This is not exactly what it is, but it's in the script. So, Mr. Buyer, if I were to show you that at the house you're looking for and that all of your needs there are, you know, essentially it was four bedrooms, two and a half baths. It was on a quarter acre lot. It was an ochre subdivision, everything, all the things are in this house. Let's not you know, there's no such thing as the perfect house, but let's say it's nine out of ten. In other words, this is the house you've been looking for. Everybody in your family wants to buy this house. So on a scale of one to ten, Mr. Buyer, where would you rate your motivation to buy that house today if I showed it to you today? And you're going to ask them that question and what they're often going to say a seven or eight. And you're going to say, OK, seven or eight, congratulations. What would it take to get you to a ten? Now, you're asking that question because that's when you're going to find out all the other things that they have to essentially overcome before they buy a house. Well, I have to get a job. I have to sell my old house. I have to convince my spouse it's time to move. My kids have to graduate from school. It could be anything or many things, but you don't know. And again, this is about not wasting your time or theirs. And when you get to those questions, you're then going to, you know, think, is it makes well when interest rates drop down to four percent? Well, so just so that I'm clear, you're not going to purchase house until interest rates drop down to four percent again. And then you might want to drill down a little bit more. Find out, well, obviously they're more focused on payment. So do you have an ideal payment you're trying to accomplish? Well, then you're going to maybe explain to them that you can help them buy the interest rate down by working with a builder or working as a home seller that's willing to pay some points, those types of things. This comes with skill. Welcome to the new market. Yes, but you can't do that drill down that deep dive unless you started with those first questions, which led you to that drill down. So how else do you articulate your value? Number two, educate your clients regarding mortgage options. Again, a symptom of a changing market. You didn't used to have to do this again if they're not all cash. Educate your clients regarding mortgage options. 30 year fixed, 20 percent down. Standard issue mortgages are still right for some buyers, but in order to achieve better interest rates and payments, they may need a different mortgage product. You should know enough to competently discuss any and all of the following. And there's more than this, but this is the short list. Of course, the 30 year fixed, the three to one buy down, the two one buy down rate buy downs using points, three, five, seven and sometimes 10 year adjustable loans, assumptions and seller financing. That's a lot. That's a lot more than you had to know when everybody's just doing a 30 year fix at three percent. You and I were studying, um, we're listening to some podcasts and we were listening to ones by they're talking about the interest rates of these big national builders because they're buying down the interest rates by like three and four legitimate points, not just basis points. And sometimes you can get into this, like I think Pulte was running a deal for 30 year fixed at 5.3, 5.3, 5.5. I know, uh, Dell web and, uh, KB homes and Horton, you know, all the big guys are doing this. And so how are they doing that? They're basically doing what you said a few minutes ago. They're financing it in. They have more flexibility to do programs like that. So they're also building smaller houses on smaller lots with fewer amenities. That's how they're doing it. They're basically selling you less, uh, charging you whatever the market is exactly making their 20 or 30% margin and then using some of that money to buy the rates down. But your buyers might be perfectly fine with that, but you're going to see a lot of changes in the types of housing that people are going to just start. Um, you know, the, the, because of the nature of the interest rates and because of the inflation that's affected housing, you're definitely going to see a lot of people starting to become a hell of a lot more accustomed to what would have been traditionally maybe a patio home. Well, that's right. And you know, one of my clients, Jeannie in Phoenix, she sells in several neighborhoods. She's very prominent in several of those neighborhoods. And one of the sister neighborhoods to where she is, is an honest to God, um, 3d printed neighborhood. They, I think they're round, kind of like the entry level to getting into that more expensive neighborhood she sells in. So you're going to see more products. You're going to see the builders change what they're doing. I think it's pretty interesting. So let's stay on this point just for a second regarding, um, you know, educating your buyers on different mortgage things. Part of that is making sure your buyers understand the difference between being prequalified, preapproved and loan committed. Which are they currently? What steps must they take to achieve loan commitment? If you're confused the difference between those three, that's a good reason to join premier coaching. There is a big difference that not only for you to understand, but for you to be able to explain and loan officers, this would be good information for you to use when trying to get, uh, explain to agents why they should be working with you. If you were to then explain to them that when you are working with their prospective buyers, that you're actually getting loan commitment, you're not just basically giving them a waffly preapproval where no, you know, credit's been checked and no verification has been done. So agents that are working with, uh, lenders, you got to make sure your lenders are actually doing actual pre approvals or actual, you know, loan commitments. And then lenders obviously work that from the other side. People are going to get a lot more choosy and who they work with in a market like this point number three. Absolutely. All right. Point number three, strategize for the win. Are your buyer clients also listing clients? Are they relocating? Are they in a situation where they can compete for a home if necessary? Should they buy first or sell first? Do they have realistic expectations? Are they looking in an area that actually has what they want? Should they consider new construction? So that's all about strategizing. The average buyer, even if they've done it two or three times is not going to have the same strategies in mind as the experienced, confident, and competent real estate professional. Would you agree with this? Julie, no matter if you have new construction in your market, especially the big national builders, even if the buyers don't think the new construction is a fit for them on your first time showing them houses, you better show them all the new construction. Yeah. Well, I don't, at least some new construction to see, you know, run it up the flagpole. I think if they are pretty committed, they want something older. You can add something new construction that might be really exciting for them, especially after showing a bunch of old houses. So let me drill down on that because the reason this is because you want to go there with the buyers. You want to register your buyers with the builder because what could happen is, for example, you could explain to the buyer and you should do this, you know, as a caring, competent real estate professional, you need to be, even if the buyers aren't aware what new construction could offer them, you need to expose them to new construction. I want something that's five acres in the middle of nowhere where I can raise my llamas or wherever the hell it is. That's fine. But you're going to go show them new construction first because what happens is people fall in love with new and what they really fall in love with is the 5.3% 30 year fixed rate interest rate. Okay. That's the reason you always need to show them new construction first if it's available in your marketplace. Because you don't want them to find that on their own. Well, that's what they do. They're going to meander about on the, you know, the Saturday that you aren't working with them and they're going to walk into new construction. They're going to go into contract on something. They're then going to text you or call you and say, Hey, we found a house and you're going to be going after you spent like three or four weeks with them. You're going to be, what the hell are you talking about? Yeah, we bought from Poldy homes or whatever. Yeah, well as an act of desperation in a low inventory market anyway, that's the reason that the builders have an enormous advantage right now and will for some time. Exactly. And we could, and I think we have done a whole podcast on that. Okay. Many got to stay on task here. Point number four, articulating your value to the buyer, actually find the home. This is one of the biggest challenges you guys have had for a long time. Inventory is scarce and will likely stay scarce for the immediate future, possibly even for most of your career next 10 years for sure. Which, you know, it could be most of your career. One of your most important value propositions is that you utilize, guess what, more than just realtor.com homes.com and Zillow, you know, the things that they can also do on their own online and offline resources are at your fingertips. Refer to our many podcasts regarding how to find inventory other than just using your MLS. We also are doing a podcast, I think it might be coming up here about how to better use your MLS with more creative searches that will net you more inventory to choose from. But actually finding the home and putting more effort into it than your buyer is to your previous point about them going to new construction potentially, that's a big USP that you're going to do more than just what they can do on their own. The reason that home values are going up, despite the fact that interest rates have gone up and payments are higher is obviously inflation, right? Some macro things, but really it's because of demand and the number of baby boomers, like the oldest baby or the oldest, uh, what are they? Millennials right now are in their mid forties. And I was surprised when I read that the average time that someone buys a house is 36 average age of a first time buyer is 36. Yeah. When you and I were young, yeah, way up. I mean, when you and I were gone way up for sure. But when you and I were, uh, you know, first, you know, working our way through life, I think most people were buying house in the late twenties, not the late thirties. That's crazy. We had lots of friends that bought before they're 25. Yeah. We bought when we were 22 and 23. Yeah. Yeah. Well, so in any event, what were you talking about? Oh, well, what was the point though? Well, actually finding the home scarce inventory. Oh, I remember now. Sorry. Listeners. Okay. Well, so you're going to have essentially the millennials that are going to be buying houses. You're going to have the baby boomers that are slow to sell houses. And so you're having the builders that aren't building enough houses. There is no reason to believe there's going to be an increase of any note in a significant increase in inventory. And it's going to be this way for a long damn time. There's more millennials than there are baby boomers, which means the demand for homes is going to increase. So the oldest, uh, millennials, if they're in their mid forties now, that means there's literally millions of them that are still going to be looking to purchase homes into the future. And there's not a lot of baby boomers that are selling, uh, because right now they are fixed. Oh, they are enjoying these real low interest rates. So they have their homes paid off, but mostly it's because they have no place to go. Don't blame Julie. Nice generation. Generation X. No, we're irrelevant.

A highlight from Parasocial Relationships: That Podcaster is Your Friend!
"Hey, and welcome to the podcast. I'm Josh and there's Chuck and Jerry's here too. And this is Step You Should Know, the little close to home edition. Yeah, right. In two ways. One is that as podcasters, we are on one end of the parasocial relationship relationship. Correct. Yeah. And the other is like, I have these, I don't know if you do or not, but I have parasocial relationships of my own with podcasts. I don't have any because I'm sane. Right. Oh, I'm totally kidding. I don't think I have any. No, I don't have any. I think what it is, is it has nothing to do with sanity. My imagination is just not that vivid. Oh, okay. You know what I mean? Because I think for this to set, you have to be able to imagine yourself like in the room with the people you're listening to, for example, or what you would do after they stopped filming the TV show or something like that. Like any, you're big into comedy. Any of your big comedian people that you love, you know, never think like, God, we would be friends if we knew each other. No, I really don't. I don't. I feel like deficient because of it, but I genuinely do not have any parasocial relationship that I can bring to mind. And I don't remember ever having that. I think I just assumed that they wouldn't like me rather than they would like me, which makes it much harder to have a parasocial relationship with somebody you just assume you wouldn't get along with very well. Well, then by some estimates, you're part of the 49 % of people that of Americans, that is, that do not have parasocial relationships. And if you're yelling at us right now, because we defined it yet, a parasocial relationship is a, it's like when you listen to a podcast and you think, I know those guys. They're like my friends. We would be so, we would be such good friends in real life. It's a one -sided relationship between a consumer of a thing, a fan of a thing and a public figure. Yeah. And one of those papers you sent me, I saw it described rather aptly as a one -sided intimacy at a distance. Yeah. And in our go -go, be normal as much as you can type society. That sounds a little like off base, a little weird, a little out there to some people, I should say to others. It's like, well, yeah, of course this is normal life, but we, we should say like, there's nothing inherently wrong with it. It can go wrong as we'll see, but at its base, having a parasocial relationship does not make you a loser, a loner, social misfit, a weirdo. It actually makes you slightly healthier emotionally, intellectually, in my opinion. Yeah. And as we'll talk about, studies bear that out that it's, you know, I think they put it at generally about three to 5 % of the time it can go south and we'll talk about that kind of stuff when it becomes obsessive and stuff like that. But yeah, for the other 95 to 98 % of people, it actually provides quite a benefit because it makes someone feel good and it makes people laugh a lot of times. And I feel like comedy a lot of times is what you associate more. I'm sure you can have parasocial relationships with like Peter Jennings or something or Dan Rather. I'm sure that happens. It would be harder though as we'll see. You generally think of it in terms of like either a podcast or a TV show when you would sit around and you would think about which friend am I or which Sex and the City character. You're such a Miranda. That's the kind of thing that we're talking about here when people identify so much that it's like a real relationship. Yes. And I want to say I am in that very unusual and unique position as are you and as are most podcasters. That you're Miranda? Right. I totally am a Miranda. Actually, no, what's the other one's name who is married to Kyle McLaughlin. I feel like I identify more with her. Yeah, Charlotte. Charlotte. Yeah, I'm a total Charlotte. What I was going to say though is I'm in the unique position of being on the opposite side of a parasocial relationship. That's a very rare place to be. And I can tell you that I do enjoy hearing about that. Like when we're at live shows and people tell us like where they think of us as like their friends or whatever, I always love to hear that kind of thing. Yeah, me too. Yeah. So I don't want to, I don't engage with them myself, but when they are thrust upon me, I'm like, oh yeah, I love that. Yeah. And we feel the same way generally. And most times when we meet listeners who are awesome like that, if we did know each other, there's a good chance we might be friends. Yeah. I think that's another thing too is I think that's kind of like that weirdo view of it. Like the irony of it is they're so far off base that like if they ever actually did meet the person in real life, they would be horribly crushed and maybe even mocked. I mean, at least from our experience, most people who do come up and tell us that they think of us as friends do seem like people we would probably hang out with in real life. Totally. There's also, and I'll talk about this a little bit I guess later, but I'm in a situation where a lot of the podcasts that I consume are comedy podcasts where I do kind of know the person. Oh, okay. But that's a quasi -parasocial relationship because I find myself thinking I'm better friends with them than I am when in fact they are just industry colleagues that are loose pals perhaps. But I think like, oh yeah, me and Scott Aukerman are like great friends because we have so much in common. Yeah, he does not think that. Scott's a great guy, super nice, he's always been very nice. I'll be on his shows occasionally. We both worked with him a little bit but we're not great friends even though I feel like we are because I listen to so much of his stuff. Okay, I'm glad you need to check somebody. I was going to ask you who you have parasocial relationships with but I feel like quasi -parasocial relationship is very niche. Yeah, probably so. So let's begin at the beginning. These things haven't been around forever mostly because they're a product of media communications. They would not exist otherwise because without media you would actually be interacting with this person face to face and that's the big rub of the whole thing is that other person is on the other side of a screen. They're in your headphones. They're not there physically but the way that they present themselves to you tricks us into um becoming friends with them or having an affinity for them just as you would if you met them in real life and the whole thing is traced back to a couple of sociologists named Donald Horton and Richard Wall who back in the 50s started noticing that people would actually talk back to their TV and that they as sociologists they said this is interesting that's kind of unusual and probably new people don't understand TV and I think I'm sure it existed before in radio but as we'll see media has added to itself added to itself added to itself over the generations over the the last you know half century or so to make it more likely that you're going to have a parasocial relationship with somebody in media and a deeper one too but the whole thing started with TV and people shouting at it and what they coined was a term called parasocial interactions. Yeah and that's I think TV also was all of a sudden you had a couple of other ingredients to the recipe that could spawn a parasocial relationship which is repeated consistent faces that you're seeing it's not like you know go into a movie which you could do before the you know 1956. That person being in your house in your living room every week or even every night was a different thing and they were talking to you they were looking at your face and there were new kinds of media personalities that they hadn't seen before which is like game show hosts talk show hosts newscasters people looking into the camera and talking to you the home audience and that changed things and they were fascinated by what they called this relationship between what they dubbed personae who are you know the Dan Rathers or whatever I don't know Dan Rather or so on the tip of my brain. What's he even doing these days? He's writing and stuff right? I don't know it's been a while I haven't heard from him in a while he hasn't called me back.

A highlight from Cisco looks to AI to improve EX, cut agent churn by improving human involvement, Special Cisco Webex Podcast
"This is Doug Green, and I'm the publisher of Telecom Reseller, and I'm very pleased to have with us again, Larissa Horton, who's the Senior Vice President and General Manager and Chief Product Officer in collaboration at Cisco. Larissa, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. Well, you know, AI is something we're reporting on like almost every day, every other articles about AI, but it's really amazing that we're going to be able to talk to Cisco about AI and the role that it plays in contact centers and why human involvement is still really critical. So, you know, I'm interested in finding out, you know, what obviously Cisco's point of view of this is, and let's start off with, you know, what efforts do you think companies should make to upskill or reskill existing agents to utilize the technology that's to its fullest potential to reduce employee churn? So with regards to employee churn, I mean, I think when I look across this industry, it's upwards of 40 % on average. And when we look at what is the experience of an agent from starting, getting trained up, handling their first set of calls, escalations, manager and, you know, subject matter expert support to eventually being disengaged and leaving. There are so many parts across that entire journey where AI can help, whether it is assisting in the first set of calls so that you kind of have that little extra support on how to respond to customers. Whether it's that wrap up and saving a little bit of time after every call to be a little faster and getting your, you know, service level and your handle times down. Or it's just understanding of all of my agents today who needs a break that maybe I didn't pay attention to because they just had a really rough set of conversations. And just as a human being, sometimes there are certain words and emotions that were impacted with that just require a little bit of breathing to get back and do your best work. So I think we're seeing AI definitely as a huge enhancement to all of those places, which really eventually lead to higher engagement at the agent level and lower turn. And so agent wellness is what we've been calling a lot of these categories and really focusing on minimizing that turn. So you have a more, I would say, experienced and aged population who are also more engaged by leveraging all of the signals and understanding how they're doing across that entire journey from beginning to being, you know, one of your very active, reliable agents in your pool. Well, you know, there's almost a little bit of a paradox in your answer because a lot of people outside of the technology sphere especially are very fearful about AI replacing human beings, almost being maybe hostile to people and so on. And yet, you know, what you've just told me is that if AI is deployed properly here in the contact center where, as you say, yes, we've had historically high turn and low employee satisfaction. You're saying actually AI can be a tool to make people happier, make people more comfortable that actually the use of AI can strategically, you know, actually improve things.

"Reminder, invests in some 25 to 30 large cap U .S. companies. Hello. Hello. How are you? Terrific. Well, it's good to have you here. Tell us about, You know, I don't always love to talk macro with you because I like to get to your holding. Hold on, he's leaving warm weather in in Arizona, to come to this here in New York. Why are you doing that? What are you doing here? Well, New York is the center of the investment industry. Okay. And we need to come about once every 90 days. Well, the people that you talk to your clients, investors, what's their tone right now? What are they interested? What do they want to know about? And are they ready to, you know, more put money to work? You know, I'm 43 years in the business and this is one of the most bizarre junctures. We believe that we've entered the third major commodity super cycle of my time on earth. The first one being 71 to 81. The second one being the brick trade 99 through 2011. And this is the third one. Too many people, baby boomers forming households in the 60s and 70s with too much Vietnam War Johnson's Great Society indebtedness monetized chasing too few goods. 1 .2 billion Chinese people who had never practiced capitalism chasing too few goods. That's the brick trade and this is now 92 million millennials and 180 million people under 40 with 11 trillion dollars of monetized debt chasing too few goods. Apart from houses that are too and few far between, what are we chasing as millennials? Well, they just reported that house prices up again, car prices have gone up. Our story yesterday from Reid Pickert, that right, talked about specifically why basically Americans hate the US economy is that yep, inflation's down over the past year, prices but are still higher than their pre -pandemic levels. In my chart deck right now, I've got the chart of inflation from 1960 to 1982. There were two big pullbacks in inflation from 6 % in 1970 down to 3 in a recession and bear market, and then it went to like 12, and then it back pulled to 5, and both of those times that it pulled back, they thought they had it licked, and then it went to 14, before they ultimately just completely clobbered the economy. So, inflation, is it licked now? No, it's a temper, it's a time -out, it's a resting period in between the next. It's very contrary in view. It's too many people with too much money chasing too few goods. More people got married last year and this year than any single year for the prior ten. Wedding invitations all the time, the babies will start rolling, and it's necessity spending. That's what drives inflation, is too many people with too many necessities to buy chasing too few goods. I've been here for a couple of days in New York. I went to a Roxy's Deli. They had one waiter waiting on twenty -five people because they can't find people to hire at twenty bucks an hour for unskilled labor. And that is a sign that we're not out of this yet. Everything ebbs and flows in the investment business. So the oil and gas industry, which is our heaviest exposure, is ebbing right now after a nice run on the first leg. But we matched it up with the prior, the two prior super cycles and we're tracking almost exactly. So talk to us about holdings. your I mean, I feel like, you know, we've talked to you for a few years now to say and a lot of names stay in the portfolio. I mean, Occidental's in the petroleum. Right. And is that your thinking? Because in the energy trade? Yeah, I'm a huge Buffett fan. And for years, I was following him around and stuff like American Express divorced Costco as the branded Costco credit card. And the stock plummeted. That's when we bought American Express. And that was that's one of his holdings. So I've been following him around for three decades. And in the last two or three years, his underlings have bought the three homebuilders we own, Horton, Lennar, and MVR. You've loved homebuilders for a long time. And then he's followed us into Oxy. You're going to get mad at me, Carol, because I'm going to just ask about the Fed real quick. OK, well, go ahead. Well, what's your top holding first? Oxy. OK, so tell me about the Northern Institutional Treasury portfolio. What is that? That's just our money market fund. Just your money market fund? Yeah. How much is in About .2 $3 .00. So not much. Or is that normal? Is that higher than normal? Two to three is normal. We always keep enough that we can start a position. OK. Meaning what percentage of your overall portfolios in cash right now? 3 .2. OK, so question the that I have is if indeed inflation is not under control now, does that mean the Fed is not cutting next year and they're going to actually have to raise more? Because if you listen to Fed speakers right now and the conversation, conventional wisdom right now that, hey, the Fed, rate hikes are behind us. Markets pricing in for rate cuts. No, that's exactly what happened in the 70s. The two Fed governors before Paul Volcker both thought they had it licked when they got in a recession in 1970 -71 and it dropped back to 3, they thought they thought that it licked. And then as soon as they let their foot off the neck of it, it spiked again and then they again tightened and it went down to 5 and they couldn't get any lower than that. And then it spiked because all this time, labor is going to demand more money. We're only at the beginning of labor asserting itself. See, in the world of tech stocks success and the economy of the last 20 -25 years. It's been a nightmare for labor. Labor was a loser in that and now things are going reversed. to get In an inflationary environment, there's two ways the average household can defend themselves. They can own a home, which locks in their rent and they can negotiate for better pay. And you're starting to see unions assert themselves. And that's typical of what happened in the 70s also. So having said that, for publicly held companies that sounds like it's going to be problematic, especially in terms of if you're paying more wages. We believe that the S &P 500 will not make money nominally over the next 10 years. Wow. So why do you want equity exposure then? Oh because during the 70s, oil and gas did great and lots of real estate did great because if you're appreciating with inflation, right? And so homebuilders did great because baby boomers needed a home. And now we got millennials that need a home. And the existing home stock won't move because if you've got a 3 % mortgage, you're not going anywhere. And the homes are old now. They're way over 45 years old on average and we own Home Depot because you got to take care of them along the way. So we're dealing with very simple economic positive forces in our portfolio while everybody else has to get dreamland to continue.
Tatum's 39 lifts Celtics over short-handed Jazz 122-114
"The Celtics gained ground in the Eastern Conference race with a one 22 one 14 downing of the jazz. Jason Tatum delivered 39 points and 11 assists as Boston pulled within a game and a half of the conference leading bucks. Tatum nailed 5 of the Celtic 17 three pointers. Anytime I had an ounce of opportunity it was either, you know, shoot a driver to kick it. Malcolm Brockton chipped in 19 points, and Derek white had its 17 in the win. The selz pulled away by outscoring Utah, 66 49 over the second and third quarters. Taylor Horton Tucker had 28 points and 8 assists for the jazz. I'm Dave ferry.

"Let's talk about some other stuff that's going on in the world of the Los Angeles Lakers. And unfortunately, we're going to start with something. It's not all that pleasant. We're going to talk about Taylor Horton Tucker. THT, this season. It's incredibly important for Taylor Horton Tucker and the Lakers. What can they get done with THT and why is it important that he really hit this season? Well, today, well, yesterday, if you're listening to this on Monday or watching this on Monday, THT went to the drew league. And it did not go as well as Lakers fans would have hoped. And in one particular area. And that set off some Lakers fans. THD put up a stat line in the drew league of 14.6 boards three assists. Okay, not bad, I guess. I mean, not certainly not LeBron's stat line when he was there the other day and not quite what you expect an NBA player to do in the drew league. But that's not really what's troubling Lakers fans. It's not like the fact that he didn't put up 30 ten and 5 or something that's really bothering Lakers fans. No, what's upset Lakers fans is that he was one for 8 from three in this game. Now, 8 shots is a tiny Sam. It's a nothing of a sample size. It's not nearly enough to make any all. You can't take anything from that and say conclusively that you can predict what he's going to do next season. You can't. Whether he shot 8 for me, whether it was one for 8, four, three, it doesn't matter. 8 shots is not enough of a sample size. However, however, I understand why Lakers fans are concerned with THT and the house that he was building at the drew league. The reason is last season he shot just 27% from three, which is a career worst, despite shooting three attempts per game, which was a career. Hi. And if you have seen any bit of Taylor horn Tucker, you understand how important the three point shot is for the offensive game. The guy can get to the basket.

"Fall to the Golden State Warriors, wasn't close in the end, but the Lakers kept it close through most of the game, Taylor Horton Tucker drops 40. LeBron, Anthony Davis, Russell Westbrook, nowhere to be found. None of them played in this game, but could play tomorrow night against the Oklahoma City Thunder to be the last home game for the Lakers of the season, actually didn't mind this game quite so much. For most of the game, the young guys were really scrapping doing everything they could, the warriors went on a run at the end of the third. I thought the lineup that Frank Vogel had on the floor was extremely questionable. But again, the winds and losses don't matter quite so much now, and it was actually kind of a fun game for the first two and a half quarters or so. Watching the young guys just really get after it. Austin Reeves was doing stuff, Taylor Horton Tucker was playing well. You got glimpses of success for a lot of these guys. So again, wasn't too upset with this game, although part of that might be we've just accepted, hey, the season's over and so we're not living and dying with every play, quite like we were. Before, but welcome in from all of you coming in from YouTube from Facebook from Twitter again, technically the season as far as making the playoffs is over, but they do still have games left two more after this one tonight. So I appreciate all of you joining me. We'll talk about a lot. I have a feeling we're gonna get a lot of questions in the chat about the news that came out about the Lakers today. The Russell Westbrook trade possibilities with the Charlotte hornets, the rockets coming back up, things of that nature, coaching stuff, all of that, have a feeling we're gonna get a lot of questions about that stuff. So we will get into those things, but first let's start with this game. So the Lakers, they do fall one 28 to one 12, Stanley Johnson 8 points, 6 boards, two assists two steals, not that impressive a statue of a stat line, but I actually thought he played fairly well two for 7 from the field. That's not great. Dwight Howard. Pretty good in this one. 16 and 12, the warriors were having trouble keeping him off the glass. He had 5 offensive boards, and he hit a three Dwight Howard. Stretch 5. There it is. He's actually shooting a pretty high percentage from three on the season. Malik monk 24 points got the Kobe 7 boards for assists two blocks, including a really nice chase down block late in the game, 8 to 17 shooting three of 9 from three, Austin Reeves, three boards, 12 points, kind of quiet on the stat sheet, but I thought he played pretty well in this one and then Taylor Horton Tucker, 15 to 28 shooting, 8 of 9 from the line two, threes, three assists three boards, four steals, 40 points..
"horton" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"To probably crack your night tonight rotation. Yep. Yeah, exactly. And so we'll see what they do moving forward here. Horton Tucker was expected to be a big piece of their rotation, fourth highest paid player on the team for a reason. But, you know, he's going to be without him for a little bit. So we'll see what they do. Austin Reeves may have some opportunity. He's looked good in preseason. Maybe there'll be a chance there for him to step in, but it's always hard to rely on a rookie to come into a veteran heavy team and produce. So we'll see where they go. I think the ideal though. I think that sucks too for THT. If this was like an ankle injury or something like that. That's a lot of times those guys can still work on their chewing. And you do worry for guys, got some shooting issues already. Because it's his right thumb to big part of his Shaw, like does that get kind of messy, with him, moving forward. This is something Romeo lankford went through in his work here with the Celtics. He had to practice basically with like almost these oven Mitt, things on just because they were trying to protect the thumb and shooting just was a mass and it's finally just now coming around. So you hope that it did something he can get by but this is kind of one he'll keep his conditioning up because he should still be able to run and do all those things. So you don't worry about that part of it. But yeah, he's the only be able to get that shooting time. And that's got to be at least a little bit concerning here. Good follow for anybody looking for injury updates. Jeff starts on Twitter he's at in street clothes. It's all completely unbiased and it's all historical with players who add a similar injury here is what happens and they also gives a lot of really good contact storm and he was the one who I just saw said. It's generally been 25, I think, or 26 games that have been messed approximately 7 weeks. With this type of injury, but in recent history, a handful of guys have made it back in less time and only missed about 15 games. So we'll see where we're at THD falls on that recovery timeline. Fingers crossed. Hopefully, he gets healthy soon. Moving on, though, Kyrie, Steve Nash admitting that they are basically expecting Kyrie to not play in home games. I know there have been some chatter about, you know, do they even bother playing him in road game? Like, how do they approach this? Because that's going to be really disruptive to the team to okay, these three games, it's a home stand, so Kyrie's out. Okay, now we're on the road to Kyrie can play again. We know he can practice now so that helps to some degree, but still, this is a difficult situation, and now this is the first instance of the Nats being like, yeah, he's probably not going to be playing it. We did see in the nets promotional materials that he was not included for the home promos. Yeah. Yeah, I mean, you gotta be careful, right? Because I know it's false advertising. I showed up to watch. You know, what happens? I'm obviously kidding there, but yeah, it's a messy situation for that, because the reality is this is the title favorite. These guys are great. They should be considered to be the title favorite at all. Anybody you can question that in any rational way. But I think the challenge comes in to still the time favor without Kyrie? Yeah, probably. I think we still say that and feel pretty good about it. But it just becomes that much harder. And to your point, this is not like a injury thing. Where you look at and say, all right, he's out for the next month. We just talked about the Lakers guys. Frank Vogel and staff in the front office and the players can plan for we're not going to have Trevor reason in town Horton Tucker for the next month at least. At the very least, you know, maybe longer, but for the next month. So here's how we're going to approach this. In this situation, are we got them for a game? We don't have them for a game. And a lot of the NBA calendar is play play a home game play road game play home game play rogue game. But they have a home stand pretty early in the season in some ways. I think that's when it becomes easier, because then you can almost adopt a mindset of our, all right, it's like you rolled his ankle and he's out for two weeks. We're not going to have him for the discs at a games and off we go, but yeah, this is just very, very messy. It was confirmed. He also can't play the games at the Knicks, because he is a resident. Consider to be a resident performer under the New York mandates. He is good in LA. He's good in San Francisco. He's good in Toronto, provided he stays in the hotel room and we're in when he's not doing team related stuff. But yeah, it's just very, very messy. Now they've got more than enough depth and no one's going to really feel bad for the nets. But the thing I wonder about this is and I put this on Twitter. At some point, do Sean marks, but I want to say it's Joe si, the ownership. You know, had the ownership group and Steve Nash, Kevin Durant, James Harden. What point do they sit down and say, what do we want to do about this? Because we have a chance to win a championship here. How do we want to handle this move with forward? What do you think? Because it sounds great right now to say, hey, it's got our spore, we're not going to push it and we're not going to do that. But you know that's a conversation that's at least kind of floating there in the background that's probably eventually going to have to be happening. But here's the thing, right? It's already leaked out. And I don't know exactly where this is coming from, but that Kyrie would consider just retiring. If he was traded. And to me, that's just like this preemptive strike. Like, don't even go down this path. Don't even consider it. Don't even think about it because I'm just kind of out there enough to where I would just walk away and say I'm not even going to bother playing. So other teams don't bother trading for me because I'm not going to play for it for anybody else. So then what are the not supposed to do? Just basically their option is either stay home and we're going to pretend like you don't exist for the season or we're going to play you in road games and that's it. And they have to decide which is better for their franchise. I've seen people out there saying trade Kyrie for Ben Simmons, right? And we've talked about this. We've talked about that. But it doesn't look like that's something that they're going to be able to explore if indeed this whole, I'll retire if I'm traded thing is real. That puts the nets in a spot where they have two very clear decisions, either roll with it and play them in the road games only or just consider him a loss for the season. Yeah, and if you could give me a list of players that I thought would follow through on our tire, if you tried me demand, he'd be pretty high on the list. I think, you know, if that reporting is true, I do think he would heavily consider falling through on it and saying I'm out of here. So yeah, it is, it's a mess. I mean, it is just no other way to put it. And that's without getting in any of his feelings on getting vaccinated or not. Strictly talking about the Brooklyn Nets and their basketball future for this upcoming season. It's a mess. And you mentioned, you know, as your option just stay fine, you don't play at all. It is your option, playing road games. I do think there's an option to exist hard.
"horton" Discussed on NBA Front Office w/ Keith Smith & Trevor Lane
"Yeah, anytime a report comes out, you have to ask yourself, who does this benefit and why would it come out? And then you can start tracing it back there to start to get to the root of it. And then there's definitely without even doubting the veracity of those reports. There is just getting into it. It's like, okay, I can see why party acts would want this information out there to the world. So yeah, and it's crazy to think you're going to get CJ McCollum and what ultimately amounts to 6 or 7 picks. There's no way Portland should or would do that. It's not, you know, in a vacuum has been Simmons, a better player than CJ McCollum? Yeah, probably he's made all NBA team already. Mccombs never done that. Likely to never make one. But you don't make trades in a vacuum. It doesn't work like that. So it's not like you're going to give up a column plus plus plus plus to get Simmons. It's just not going to happen. Just like, on the flip side, you know, you want Damian Lillard. What else are you adding to it? You'll get Damien Lillard because you're going to have to add. You know a bunch of things to go dame or if you want Bradley Beal. You're not to add a bunch of stuff to get Bradley Beal. So yeah, I mean, the reality is we're a week or so away now from opening night, just over a week. They're going to play with open Simmons. There's no chance he's going to play on opening night for this team. I would be stunned. If that happens, they can't even imagine what that would be like. So we'll see. And I don't want to out who said this to me, but I think this is a really good point. His comment was, I don't think we'll ever see Ben Simmons play another game in Philadelphia, whether is a member of the sixers or another team. And I think that's probably accurate. So you're saying that if let's say 7 gets traded to the Sacramento Kings and they go on the road and they're playing the 76ers, he's out that game. Yeah, just yeah, I think it'll be much like what Kyrie Irving did in Cleveland for years and even the first run in Boston. Now, clearly, when they played in the playoffs last year, Kyrie played and played in Boston. And Simmons is traded and has to play in Philadelphia in a playoff game. He would, but I think a regular season game where I wouldn't be as far as if we never see him. Play a game there again. I mean, I guess, could be a safety concern, given how Philadelphia feels about Ben Simmons. Right now, at the moment, you know, I understand that too. Last night on our Lakers nation, postgame show, I had Scorpio sky on with me. Big, big, big Lakers fan. He's an AEW wrestler. And he did a fantastic job. But he threw in and the courts of our conversation. He said he was in Philadelphia last week for an AEW show. And in the middle of a match, the crowd started chanting F Ben Simmons. And I saw those. This is crossing over now. So yeah, Philadelphia, not fans of Ben Simmons at this point. Yeah, this is time there's in our time on this subject. There's also done so. Yeah, let's move on. Let's move on to something that's going to make me infinitely more sad. Taylor Horton Tucker revealed today that he did have to undergo or is going to have to undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. That's his shooting hand. The Lakers last night had said that he was still undergoing medical evaluation. That was a red flag in and of itself. And now today we do find out that he's going to be missing significant time. I haven't seen a timetable come out just yet. I've seen a lot of Internet doctors that have kind of thrown out guesses. We're not talking about weeks, though in this one. This is going to be over a month, probably getting closer to the two month range or so. And then you got to factor in the fact that it's a shooting hand as well. Not good. A Lakers team that looked like they had some depth is now suddenly looking very thin particularly on the wing with Malik monk dealing with a groin issue. Trevor ariza out with a ankle surgery and now Taylor Horton Tucker, dealing with this injury, again, the Lakers were just destroyed by a tidal wave of injuries last season and so Lakers fans. I feel for you at this moment, not easy to see this even start off this way. Yeah, it's to the point where I would say, you know, in my last preseason game, I would play those camp guys and two way guys all the minutes and just be like, guess what? Show us what you got. You get 48 minutes between 6, 7 of you or whatever it is there, because there's no sense to putting anybody else out there because now you're I always say this with injuries. Yes, there are superstar injuries that if a guy goes down for a year, can ruin a whole season. But it is rarely so in the case of the Lakers. These are all role players that are hurt right now. So it's rarely about them going down. It's what happens when the next guy goes down. And like you said, they're now thin on the wing. So if you were to lose another wing, let's say camp baze more rolls an ankle, and he's gonna be out for two weeks. Now you're all of a sudden, like, what is happening here? Where do we go? We talked with the array injury. Does that start to change? Some of your lineup instructions because he was kind of a key to playing AD at the 5, being able to have him out there hoarding Tucker. At worst what top 8 9 player in the rotation, maybe a top 5 probably top. We're talking about a pushing for a starting spot. Yeah, so I mean, especially with the reason, yeah, you might have. So yeah, so that becomes really kind of messy there. Oh, on the second unit, too, I think they were going to rely on him doing some ball handling in creation type of stuff. So I just think that's the problem. It's not necessarily those guys being out because you can survive those guys being out. It's now all the rest of these guys are going to have to take on a bigger role, do a little bit more. Does this mean LeBron James instead of playing 25 to 30 minutes in the first? Three, four weeks of the year? Does he have to play 30 to 35 minutes? And just all those things start to add up over the course of a year, especially when you have an older roster. They've got more than enough depth to survive this. They should be fine. But it is just something we have to keep an eye on now. We're moving forward into the start of the regular season here because you're hoping to round into our feel pretty good about where our rotations out. We feel pretty good about our lineups. And now the Lakers are in a little bit of flux with that. And they're going to have to figure some stuff out on the fly. And from a roster building perspective, we have to remember that they do still have an open roster spot. I don't know if you saw this last night on social media, but James Ennis was campaigning for the Lakers who signed him. Obviously, this was before the injury to Taylor Horton Tucker was made known, but he was already out there, and he's been going around liking all these posts that suggests he should sign with the Lakers and all that. He very much wants them to sign him. So they do have a roster spot where if they were to say, we just don't have anything. We need another player to come in right now. We can't afford to hold this for us to spot open until the biomarker, they could, I suppose, turn to him. But again, the plan coming into the season was to leave that 15 spot open and to wait until the biomarker to fill it. Yeah, and there's nobody who jumps out to me, obviously you've watched a lot closer than I have. But in the games I've watched and the reports I've read out of chanti Brown Mack become all over the queen. None of those guys has stepped forward enough to take that spot. They're probably looking at all those guys more as the second two way player. Next to Joe AI. Do you go to wonder, they regretting a little bit converting Austin Reeves? Do maybe did that was that a move that felt better in the moment and now with hindsight, but it is what it is. You can't move backwards. So yeah, I do wonder, do you look at it and say, you know, guess what? We'll bring in James Ennis because your other option is, too, you can always bring them in on a non guaranteed contract and then wave them later if he was willing to do that if you wanted to die. Now we're healthy again. We want to keep that broad open, or you could also still do that with Austin Reeves as well. That remains an option there. But it's really at this point it's about Ross and flexibility and tax savings and you can't fault them for keeping both of those things top of mind. Right now, because you're talking about a guy who in an ideal world in, let's call it two months. Isn't going.

Stop and i don't know if he ever really said he was sorry like came totally clean about it but i think he clearly made a decision that screw these neo. Cons man i think. Maybe his changed. My tacoma with ron paul. And wait that just you'd have to be a fool to believe in this stuff anymore. Come on and i think he really has gotten much much better on foreign policy. Since then and i think it's personal. I think he put faith in these guys. Okay you guys say you gotta do this fine and then it was a disaster you know and i think he you know g- carlson's certainly is a much more thoughtful person than o'reilly or hannity at all. So i think you know must have been sitting by himself eating dinner one night and thought man became believe with those guys are going through over there. You know what i mean. It matter dam in a way other than just cash in his checks and having tv persona and all of this stuff the way hannity is. But i gotta wonder about the people watch carlson and then watch hannity like. Can't they tell the difference in this sub. Yeah you know. I i don't know i don't i think they're just geared towards different demographic say i think that Tucker carlson hitch more of the the twenty five to fifty five demographic and enhance these really. Just for the boomers. Yeah i don't think you can really listen to sean hannity and take him seriously unless you are boomer con of what the of what they call them like you. I think maybe my mom's solicits the hannity. My mom's like my family's very conservative. I grew up with Sean hannity and alan colmes and it was very apparent that alan combs or michael. Alan colmes thing. Yeah on is very clear that they know he kind of looks like droopy from charlie brown like he just looked. He played the role of the week. Liberal sean hannity with the all american guy who was standing up for the soldiers in the troops But yo- kind of plays that role now fox news What's one williams E- kind of plays at role now is kind of like the real radical democrat.

Millions of salafism is these are like the more fundamentalist in radical edge of suni islam. They all stay home. They go to work and then they come home. They don't blow up anybody they're not really political at all. They're quietest they believe in a fundamentalist interpretation of islam. That doesn't mean they're willing to join an army to kill others to die for it. You know it's just not true. So who the hell she line and who she trying to impress with this crap anyway. I in fact. That's the thing is i think she believes it. But i'm kind of ashamed of her for that because it's completely stupid and she should know better you know. What do you think of the reaction right now from You've been on fox news lately on kennedy show so the right wing is kind of like. I'm disappointed but i do think they've made progress. But not enough progress. Like watch tucker tucker. Carlson the the day that kabul falls he has i think his first guest was andrew basic that kabul fell ridge. Which in douglas mcgregor were i who guests and i think cling grin wall was on the show later grow seen that are really line up and then a couple days ago A couple days after that. He had Danny davis on it. All great right wing ex military guys like the type guys that can speak to the right wing and say hey. The wars are stupid. Like they're not having some hippie. Deputy person who's going to turn people off So in that regard. I think did you see this guy. Joe kent yes congressman. I did see that interview and that was so impressive. Man i send him the book. I can't wait to find out what he thinks the thing if he reads it you know. I think i sent him both books. Probably yeah i mean try calling makhaya pussy man like that guy is a right winger. He just knows that these wars are dumb but art once even even even though tucker's good on like the middle eastern wars or afghanistan. He still sucks in a lot of stuff. Like i don't want him too much credit. But after that sean hannity comes on. And with sean hannity has he literally has a clock like a like a day counter like the iranian hostage crisis. It is just the most ridiculous things. It's it's now day. Fourteen of american stranded in afghanistan is now. It's now dave fifteen. So part of it is just completely fell and had been dumbed down by just standard part aside from. Yeah well when. I heard that. Oh that trump went on hannity show and then blamed it on bush.

"And it's probably hard for people who were too young to remember how it was. Then the even imagine the level of sanctimony behind this garbage. This absolute garbage. I mean you've got articles this week. You know with the fall of the regime in afghanistan. Yeah and the twenty years since september eleventh yet. he's kind of retrospective pieces were bush administration. People are now saying yeah okay. We shouldn't have done iraq. That was everybody's fault but mine. Right like john. Negra ponte and some of these others i knew better. I knew we shouldn't do it but they wanted to do it anyway. But so in other words you got people in the w bush years who were in the bush government then who in twenty twenty one will say. Yeah no that was a mistake a mistake. Man of all of the unforced premeditated murder plots that went awry. This was one of them. Man this is like on the level of japan attacking america bad idea dude. What the hell do you guys think you're doing. You don't start wars. Who told you it was okay to start a war. And they did and they beat everybody over the head with those. The terrorists are going to get you. If you won't let us defend you and you know here's the part always say.

It's that that's true right like they weren't saying it. It wasn't like some elite. Think they were trying to build up a mass movement of support for starting this war they needed for everyone in your neighborhood including the little lady who doesn't know about political stuff and never messes with stuff like this.

"To do it but then they'll turn to wolfowitz and wolfowitz says yeah we gain this out it's going to be great you know like trust us egg heads. We already went through how it's going to shake out in the new iraqi order and it's gonna be wonderful. We got it all figured out. The bush didn't trouble himself with these kinds of questions. That's what neil concert for you know. And then but they are complete idiots and the idea was that. They're so smart. All paul wolfowitz. Why one time. He predicted that. Saddam hussein would do something that saddam hussein did which i think would have been his invasion of iran which america gave him the green light to do. So yeah big prediction dude. But why what a brilliant genius that means. We ought to let this guy decide whatever he wants. He's really he's so damn smart. And then you guys not from your deal with people in your real life that anybody who's that smart is not that smart and they're always going to be overlooking something and you could have a real dummy who's got some real compelling wisdom on really important things and the guy like paul. Wolfowitz is the kind of guy who would make the worst decisions in american foreign policy history right in terms of even from the empire's own point of view of what they were trying to accomplish. He ran the car into the ditch. Guys complete failure and loser. The day looked at him and said wow. Wow you know if you guys say so then. This is going to be great. Let's do it and then of course it didn't work out like that at all what happened instead was that bush put iran's best friends in power. It was the shiites all right but they were taking orders. I mean in fact. Let me ask you. Have you ever heard anything. About the history of iraq were to where the jordanians were dominant or even had to say at all in anything that happened in iraq. Words zoo right nothing. Yeah no influence was to ever and look. It was ahmed chalabi. Who's working for himself. I in iran second and who conned these guys. And i have the quote in the book where he says. Look i just had to tell these guys what they needed to hear to get the war. Don't worry about me. I'm with you guys. Still you know that was him talking to his friends. You know like don't worry. I'm just manipulating these idiots. And so that's what happened. And then that's see. This explains than the rest of american policy in the middle east since then too. Because if what bush did by invading that country starting at war was put iran's best friends in power where they remained this day. Well then shit. That's not what they wanted to happen. So now what are they gonna do. So then. that explains why they're back on the side of the terrorists as i explained earlier where you know most of the time they're on the same side as the bin laden nights nowadays. Well that's why they're trying to get revenge against the shiites because they're mad they fought a where to find them and so they keep and of course every time they do this like in syria. They started the covert war against assad to try to weaken iran. Yet don't you think Jeffrey goldberg says to obama. Don't you think if we get rid of assad in damascus that that'll help bring iran down a peg and obama's absolutely okay. But then what happened..

"That's a direct quote from meet the press and there's a thing from this last. I guess february could be january. Still in reaction to the january six right at the capitol. Npr news interviewed robert. Gronyea who's robbery was the former. Cia officer who used to be the station. Chief in islamabad and part of my case for them deliberately leading osama bin laden go is that robert grigny had already worked out deconfliction with the pakistani army and frontier corps that when bin laden when and if he believes across the border into pakistan and we expect the delta force to be hot on his heels that we want to protect from friendly fire. Do we have a deconfliction line already. Set up robert gronyea. At least in his book he claims he had done his job. And instead of a deconfliction line and then he makes excuses for bin laden getaway away. Well he took the wrong valley or some kind of thing. I forgot his excuse. He doesn't buy in the book that they let them get away either but he's to me part of the case that they did if you take his word for it on that but anyway so this same guy who in other words have this peripheral role in the hunt for bin laden at the time he is interviewed on. Npr news about january sixth. And he's making his horrible analogy and we'll get to the analogy in a second but to set up for the analogy he explains to the npr news reporter. He says you know in the war on we could have focused directly on bin laden and al qaeda. But we and he doesn't use the word wisely but he's clearly like agreeing that this was the smart thing to do the way he describes it and he says but we decided we wanted to focus more on kind of this broader milieu of extremism. In which al-qaeda was thriving and that meant the taliban well just this is the parentheses for the sake of artists cussin' in his analogy the january. Sixth rioters were al qaeda. And the broader meal you of the kaleh ban that they wanna focus on that of the real enemy of the new domestic war on terrorism.

He tells the story and he goes down the same wailing that my grandmother did right. And it's like the same exact sound and it's even. I'm saying i'm getting emotional saying it. But it's the same. It's like your. How can you not see this. How can this be your story and not see that. You're doing the same thing to these people look The israeli occupation of the palestinians is absolutely ruthless. You know as just like you're saying hey somebody could be your friend and still start a fight. Yeah somebody could be. Somebody could look just like you and be in the wrong and you know hell i mean you. Decide which tail is wagging which dog but aren't israel in america perfect mirror images of each other at this point in their little cruel empire and our globe spanning one that uses them as a cog as part of it. I mean we use them. They use us. You know it's kind of this weird relationships lloyd wright and look i mean that little aside about trump trump rolled over for james mattis and hr mcmaster an ordinance esscalation in afghanistan an air escalation especially and he did try to negotiate a deal. Whatever but thinking ever even thought about that air war for another moment of his life after that the tens of thousands of people being bombed to death on the ground there. And it's just the well look. We're the good guys and it's unfortunate and yeah we should wrap it up as soon as we can and whatever but it's hard to say like no that is evil ruthless murderous imperial tyranny if it was another country in the world we wouldn't have any problem understanding it for what it is when it was the soviets doing it to the afghans. You think we said yeah. Well you know those are the break sometimes a bomb drops on your head or this is the worst thing this proves..

So all i know is the numbers from last night was twenty seven. Children had been killed. And if you look at my twitter feed you can see pictures of their burnt corpses. Some of them and more than one hundred people have been killed in gaza. They're destroying apartment buildings. They blew up the high rise that houses all the international media in gaza and one of these towers they bombed it and it had a cell phone tower on the top right and as the thing comes down like what does that look like. Was that reminds you of. And then i mentioned this to max blumenthal. It was right. It was just like a nine eleven style like you know the way the way it felt because they hit at the bottom and the last week it didn't look exactly what pretty reminiscent. And then. also you have these riots going on inside. So-called israel proper against the twenty percent arab minority. Where the going around dave break in store.

"Israelis deliberately let them grow while persecuting and and and oppressing everyone else so they amass sweeping roundup all the p. l. o. guys and leave the hamas out there and you know i think they helped finance them and the rest of that too and for the simple reason divide and conquer create a right wing religious alternative to the secular leaning. Plo common but they were somewhat leftist and the pflp and all that popular liberation front and all that and so just divide and conquer and they helped to sucker the rise of of of hamas in the first place and then. I got to say to sorry. Dave got these tangents there in my now. They're also great when ariel sharon murdered sheikh yaseen in the year. Two thousand and four data. What caused the riot. Influenza where the blackwater guards were hanged from the bridge. And then george. W bush sent james madison. The marines to kill hundreds and hundreds of civilians in the giant battle of volusia in the spring of two thousand four that really touched off the sunni based insurgency in iraq war to was all because of the israelis murdering an old man in a wheelchair with cruise missile. These things are sticky. Yeah man so listen. They're they're doing this. Ethnic cleansing campaign in east jerusalem. Then on the last day of ramadan netanyahu sent the security forces to attack the people praying at the al aqsa mosque and you. I don't know who threw the first rock or who shot the first stone. Grenade or what. Maybe a palestinian through iraq. I but it was a massive security force provocation in the first place and then the next day they did it again. This was one week ago last friday. And then the next day on saturday did it again. They injured three hundred. People are a bunch of women praying in there and go in there with flashbang grenades and smoke bombs and rubber bullets in this kind of thing and three hundred people were wounded in the deal and hamas then a warning and said if you don't get your forces off of the dome of the rock or the al aqsa mosque compound by this time tonight. We're going to shoot some rockets at us. And so then that was what happened. And then it was. I think it was last sunday night monday morning. Or maybe it was monday night. Tuesday morning was when hamas started firing the rockets but this is step four on the chain of events. Here is not the beginning of this thing and then you know. It's understandable that americans. This is the line from a better. Get this right my speech tonight. This is the line that robert higgs used about. World war two and franklin roosevelt. Whenever they tell the history of the story they always truncated the antecedents in other words. Yeah you know what. Japan attacked us. And then we had kick their ass. Well also other stuff happened before that that you might need to know about right and so it's the same thing here where they go. Look what would you do a moscow's firing rockets at you. Nothing and it's just look if you shop at a fistfight and you don't know who swung i just pick like the guy where the closest skin color yours or not willing to to yourself that you actually. I just got here. And i don't know who hit first and then and then football and that the fact that like look there could be somebody who lives like in you know as a real good job has a real nice family. Has you know has like lives a life similar to the life that you live and has the same skin color as you and there could be somebody who's like has a different skin color than you and lives in like a fucking shack and has a very different culture than you and you'd probably be a lot more judgmental about the way they run their life but it's still also possible that the first guy starts a fight with the second guy that is still a possible thing even know you could be like no even though this guys more similar to me and this is a whole different world that that could be the case and if you look at it and by the way sixty percent of the israeli jews look just like arabs. Did you know that it's only the ruling. Caste twenty percent of the top of the oscar. Nause jews from europe while. That's where okay so if you want to be a big big at about it and the browns side. How about the palestinian christians if an arab is a christian is half a human. Then you care about them at offi praises same. Jesus on christmas you. I look at it like it's as if i don't know in some analogy like you know the pre israeli relationship with with the muslims in palestine. Whatever predating the creation of israel is almost like. It's like if i'm the jew and you would i am and And i rent a room out in your house. And i were in a room there. You got like a nice big house and you rent a room and we're kind of like getting along fine like i'm renting a room there and there's and then it's kind of like some outside body decides our actually going to split this old house fifty fifty and you're like excuse me like what no that's not and then i invite my whole family and they start moving your family down to like half the house and have to have moving into and before you know the basic your your garage with your family and actually now i'm going to rate into your garage and check that everything's going the right way and then be like key. Believe scott tried to throw a punch at me. When i came into his garage. Did he give you permission to come in the garage. Like no no i just. I reserve the right to come into the garage. Whenever i want to write even though that's his and like i mean you know at that point so not just in the fist fight analogy but you have to have some context here where this is not just a fight. That came out of nowhere. This is a fight from people who have been pushed into the garage of this region. And if we're not here about robert rights they had the majority claim of this land. And like you said they've already kind of given up on all of that and we just have gaza and the west bank and we just at least have that be hours but the truth is from the libertarian. Starting point they the un had no right to even initially give the jews that much of the property. That didn't own is did the british..

"If it's so important that we support and that were involved in this part of the world that it's worth nine eleven happening goes okay. Then let's just tell the american people that like let's just you know like and which is you gotta say a fair argument and go. Hey this is worth the cost then. Okay but we gotta say we're willing to pay these calls do that a lot too. Because he's a cia analyst. He would go sir. I don't have opinions or emotions or anything. I'm just here to tell you the facts and you're the guy in charge of making the decisions and he would talk that way whether he's talking to you and me the american people or whether he was talking to somebody in government look. My job is just to tell you. That's why they did it. Okay you wanna make value judgment. That's your djelic. Here's his intelligence. The inviolate did that right. Is this worth it to you or not. There's trade offs. Eric alterman from the nation magazine. Saying the same thing look man. Everybody knows that the reason they did. This is because of our support for israel and saying if that's the cost damn it then that's the price we have pay and i do think it's worth it but i also think we should be honest and let the american people know. Well which of course never happened right. You people never got that you re tweeted and i do want you know we do. We'll get into the more recent history a second. But i did want to mention because it really like. I'd never seen this before but you tweeted the current israeli defense minister. I guess this is position. I yes yeah and this tweet. Was this video that you tweet. It was really like even by some of the crazy admissions that i've heard from high level Israeli government officials. He was saying that Basically that there they had a policy to treat al-qaeda members who had been wounded in syria. The against no no. That was that was somebody else from from in the obama years. So this this this was back during the you know. Maybe like two thousand thirteen two thousand fourteen. Something like this aren't and they were talking about the conflict in syria and how they would provide medical aid to al qaeda fighters who were injured. And no you know no problem with that. I think that's kind of the first world thing to do. Is you know if someone is injured and you can save their life. There's you know whatever but what explains this proximity you well right right off that stuff aside which we've talked about a lot on the show but so he says he goes. Well look like yeah we do. That's gonna why do you do that. And he goes it's not for strategic reasons humanitarian reasons. You know someone's hurt we're going to. We're going to give them medical care. Then go would you do the same for hezbollah and goes no. And he's so serious no and he goes well why not and he goes well because we don't have that relationship with has blood and then he goes okay so then it's not for humanitarian reasons. It is strategic and they go. So why wouldn't you do it for hezbollah and he goes well. Hezbollah has attacked israel. Al-qaeda has never attacked israel and there is something as an american to watch. And you go wait a minute wait a minute so we have to give you billions of dollars. Prop up your if any israeli dies. Every politician over here has to be nothing but tears and pity we all after care so much when israel's attacked but you'll just sit there and go cut never did nothing us like as a new yorker to sit there and hear that you're like oh so so. That's not a deal breaker for you. Al qaeda's not a problem. What because they didn't attack you well. They did kind of attack the country. That's the reason you exist. The reason by your own bahamas doing the same thing. The same thing that cool that would have been one thing but it is amazing to see how much they value them being attacked. But because you you sit there as an american and you look at that and you go. Okay well then. Why shouldn't i just reverse this. I don't give a shit about hezbollah because guess what they've never attacked my country right. They never did shit to us. So why like it. Which is my so okay. Fine have that take but then we have this take to right absolutely right and so listen before we get to the current crisis because got to do that. But we gotta do this. I is this h w bush. Bill clinton tony in peace process of course was just a ruse right. It never went anywhere especially once rabin was dead. It was peres and netanyahu. And then barack and then almer sharon and then olmert and the netanyahu again and their policy. This whole time has had nothing whatsoever to do with giving up the west bank. The whole policy is continued to establish facts on the ground. Right while pretending that there's this peace process that's ever going to lead anywhere and i forgot who coined that's the first time but they say it's like negotiating over pizza while one side. He's eating the thing right right. Yeah the other side actually. Have a slice left here now. So what it is is this man. Is your liberal. Jewish friends in new york who support israel support israel on the condition that you guys are going to give up the west bank like rabin wanted one day right. You said you. Would you promised you would the two state solution. These people have to have independence right but now that game is up for. I think it was last summer. Where netanyahu announced that he was going to announce the outright full dj array annexation of all of the west bank east jerusalem and then. He backed down and he didn't do that but he might as well have. And so this is. What's now to the major crackup in liberal zionism in america. Because you said. I don't know if you've got on the percentages but last i saw american jews vote liberal democrat like eighty five percents. I'm like that. They they earn. Like wasps and vote like puerto ricans was. I forgot who learned that a long time ago. So i mean. American jews are into civil rights. Man they were like supported the civil rights movement in the nineteen sixties. And all that. If they can do that to the blacks they can do us. Man we got an solidarity among victim groups here in this kind of deal and they really believe that stuff and so then you look at palestine israel palestine and it's like mississippi in the thousand nine hundred fifties before brown versus board of education and the civil rights. Act you go wait a minute. When that was going on in america the liberal jews from the north came down to mississippi as freedom riders to try to do something about it. Now they're supposed to just sit there and and now that the ruse of eventual independence is cancelled and now that even netanyahu has said and.

"Percent off the only shirt worth wearing all right. Let's get back on the show in the forty eight war. The israelis made a secret deal with the king of jordan because you know the united nations recommendation not like the united nations has the authority to create a sovereign state. They don't it was just the general assembly recommended this partition. The israelis get a state. It was crazy shape. The way it was supposed to work was impossible anyway. But these raise state in the palestinians will get a state and the israelis made a secret deal with the king of jordan that he would take all of the west bank. These would not fight him in the forty eight war. They fought most against syria. Egypt and jordan. Israel left each other alone so that the jordanians could take the west bank to short circuit the idea that there would ever be an independent palestinian state so there never has been the entire time since they took the thing over. And then so. I'm not certain i think egypt controlled. Gaza strip virtually during all of that time and their their work settler colonists their israeli colonists on the west bank to sharon finally pulled him out in two thousand five but there were calling us there for many years to but then in an i'm not sure beginning when honestly but in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven fifty four years ago was the six day war and this is the one that israel started and ben gurion not been green a bagan you can find the quote. Were begging says come on. I know we like to tell everybody. The egyptians were attacking us a week. Preempted them but we all know. That's not really true and stuff. You can find the quote where he explains. They took the opportunity to attack egypt. And then jordan and syria jumped in the war and they took the west bank and the gaza strip as i mentioned they cleanse another two hundred fifty. Three hundred thousand people out of the west bank at that time but then they kept it all and now they call it judea and samaria and the idea is quite contrary to the international law written by the united states in the aftermath of world war. Two when hitler's lebanse round doctrine was made illegal for all time on the planet or or else. America will attack you. If you break the law you try to invade your next door neighbor and take their land. America will come and solve that the un security council come and saw that. I'm not saying for the un. But i'm saying this at least the stench of the hypocrisy here is. This is all the international law that the united states of america wrote and foisted on the world and the name of so-called liberal rules-based international order on all of this the israelis outright or war criminals outright are in violation of all of that they'd west bank. This are moving colonists and they started doing it almost immediately throughout the nineteen seventies now. Most people don't even know this right. The camp david accord in nineteen seventy nine when jimmy carter negotiated peace between egypt and israel. Part of that deal was and you gotta promise to work on this peace process towards the independent palestinian state stopped the expansion of settlements on the west bank and let the palestinians have the west bank and the gaza strip and of course. They never did that. They never lived up to that part of the deal at all. Then when h w bush can After reagan He and baker really wanted to see an end to the settlements and james baker said and they did this as i forget if it was before or after the madrid conference where they said. Oh we're going to cut support. We're not going to give you money until you stop expanding the settlements on the west bank and then i don't know where there's quote really comes from but apparently it's a real quote. Was that james baker. This is a quote james. baker said. Fuck the juice. They don't vote for us anyway. And then somebody like publicized. That and so they went. Oh yeah and they went and put all of their way and i guess and suck shamir was the was the absolutely horrible to quote. Murray rothbart prime minister of israel at the time. And and i think it was. Bush had even said something like cheese. I wish we had a different prime minister over there to deal with and they got rid of him. They held new elections war. We better do what they say to a degree but then there was backlash from that we get rid of this bush guy you know and they put all of their weight behind bill clinton. Now i don't have any reason to believe that zionism had anything to do with ross. Perot's run then. There are a lot of reasons that people power in america wanted to split the vote against bush and secure the election of the democrat. Ninety two this one of them and clinton attacked bush from the right on palestine to china in ninety two. There is something right like i. It's a real problem amongst let's say the anti zionists and among some legitimate real deal anti-semites on the right wing. Who do blame the jews. Four everything everything is the fault of this like zionist control and adds not i. I certainly not your argument. And it's not my argument but if we're looking at this objectively you really can't deny that israel does have some pretty incredible amounts of of they have more of a voice than most let's say this h.w. Skull and bones bush. He blamed the israel for his loss. Right okay so it's not just you know. Some servers right some outside observers. The guy himself did look at it that way right so and it does seem like there's been lots of examples with bush with clinton the next guy who they get in there where they seem to run around what the american president actually wants to see happen in the region which is still pretty friendly to the israel his. Let's go. it's not like there's a pro palestinian american president here just one being like okay. Good you stop building so much on their land scale it back a little and they seem to find a way around that and somehow are still collecting billions in us tax. Payer money getting you know having us fight all types of wars that are in their benefit again. There's lots of different factors that go into us fighting these wars. It's not simply that their wars for israel but do all seem to be the war that israel wants us to fight. That's part of the story here. Yeah well you know. In the new book the iraq war chapter has a hell of a lot to do with the neoconservative faction and they are the vanguard of the israel lobby in the united states of america. There's no question that is. That's what the neoconservative movement is right and you know. And they are the ones who got that work done. There's just no question about that but skipping ahead now so in the clinton years they had what was called the peace process right. You had this. It's kind of a complicated mess. But the israeli prime minister was he hit sock rabin and he didn't. There's an excellent book by jeremy hammond obstacle to peace the american role in the israeli palestinian conflict. Killer book just killer book and he details in just beyond reason in fact the the level of scholarship. This book is incredible where he goes through and shows how despite all of them you know mythology rounded rabin was never really going to give up a palestinian state at all but he was going to give up enough of one something like bantustans and semi independence. Probably more independent than they got now. I mean quite a bit more than they have now but still nothing like a true sovereign state on the west bank and east jerusalem there but then he was shot by sensu essentially a netanyahu fan. You know killed them for this and then he was replaced by his. Forget if peres was the defense minister the president that i think he was defense minister at the time then peres became prime minister. And so this gets into ron policy. Just to say though because i know this from like within my jewish family and friends of the family and stuff there's a dynamic in israel that you know i think it's hard for americans to understand because our country's a few hundred years old and israel is not and there is at least the attitude amongst most jews that i i knew like in new york. Is that this very real living memory of the holocaust and the idea that israel was the protection for the jews. Like this is what guarantees that there won't be another holocaust and there's this reverence for the first generation like their founding..

So is this sugar high going to turn into a sugar crash. Tim weigh-in look. I think the year comps don't make a lot of sense. In terms of prices.

"I don't know about you but my family loves this time of year for us. It's really all about the food we gather at my grandma's house on six nations for a potluck style christmas eve dinner and every year. We have seafood. Uncle dave brings salmon drenched in maple syrup. My dad make seafood chowder. My cousin allen brings oysters and whoever is holding the venison pepperoni from this past years. Hunt fingers crossed brings a lot because it disappears quickly. We drink way too much. T eat way too much food and make way too much fun of each other. That is our tradition. And i'm going to miss it this year. I guess we'll just have to share a cup of tea and make fun of each other over zoom while aida shrimping alone today on the show how indigenous folks are celebrating family traditions and making meaningful connections in all kinds of innovative ways off the wall verse. They got off three walls. That's the sound of a carnival at women kong nursing home staff at the long term care facility in Mccown first nations are finding creative ways to lift the spirits of its elders. During the coronavirus pandemic the nursing home recently went viral online after posting photos of residents deer hunting with nerf guns. Cbs's gonna see. Oh dear is here to tell us more about the creative ways. The staff is keeping spirits up during these challenging times. Welcome to the show going to see you. Thanks for having me okay. So my first question is nerf guns. Yes so each week staff Akon nursing homes drives have a full calendar activities for its residents were primarily first nations for manitou island. One of those recent activities was deer hunting but not actual deer hunting stops. Set up a mini forest of christmas trees dressed up endear costumes and gave the residents some nerf guns photos as you can imagine went viral on facebook so they come up with this idea. One of the residents that he was experiencing hunting fever so the staff wanted to come up with a solution. Emily barnes is the recreation manager at the nursing home here. She is explaining more about the approach. She takes when organizing activities. Anything how much. He missed actually being avid hunter. Every year and how this time of year is kind of hard because he felt like he was truly missing out on something important. I am although the person centered approach and we cater to the individual interests of our residents The community that we come from hunting providing for their families is such an important part of life.

Photos and videos of every activity or shared on social media cheryl says that these activities received tons of feedback from people across canada and the united states some joining in with their own deer hunting activities.

Officials could approve 2nd COVID-19 vaccine by Moderna soon
"The united states set a record for cova cases for a second day in a row yesterday. Nbc news data shows more than two hundred forty. Three thousand new cases were reported while the covert tracking project report. Some one hundred fifteen thousand people are currently hospitalized with the virus. The us nearly set a new high for deaths as well. Thirty two hundred ninety three reported yesterday. Just five of the record number reported on wednesday but more relief could be on the way the united states is on track to approve a second corona virus vaccine after an independent panel to the food and drug administration recommended. Emergency use authorization for the moderna vaccine yesterday. Members of the vaccines and related biological products. Advisory committee voted twenty two zero in favor of authorization with one abstention. The fda is expected to agree with the recommendation in an official capacity. Could be as soon as today joining us now. Infectious diseases physician and medical director of the special pathogens unit. At the boston university. School of medicine. Dr in the he'd be delia. Nbc news and msnbc medical contributor. Dr padilla it's good to see you. How significant is the modern news to go in the back last week of the pfizer authorization. Although it's another tool in our toolbox moderna vaccine the advantages of it are actually store that much much higher temperatures making distorted most of the freezers bridges that hospitals and clinics usually absent additionally gonna be helpful in areas that made me maybe do not have that infrastructure to be able to store the visor vaccine. So that's one thing that the reason maderna's saw a twenty two zero compared to pfizer that some people turn down the vote was actually. The madeira vaccine is looking for Emergency authorization for those over eighteen years of age whereas the pfizer had the sixteen and seventeen year olds as part of their horton. Some of the members of the committee. The fbi independent committee had an issue with so few number of people in that age for pfizer. It's good news. The one thing that will point out that together with either madonna. Us little if everything goes plan that secured about hundred and fifty million a vaccination spur one hundred fifty million people. So that's about half of our country a little less than half of our country and so we're really still waiting astrazeneca's data as well as bouncing johnson stated in january. That's going to help. Fill the gap. So dr brasilia. How is this rollout going. As we hit the end of the week aired started on monday with those historic pictures of nurses being injected in new york city and the day later in new jersey and across the country. Is it going as planned. They make tweaks where the things that need to change to. Make sure this gets quickly to the people who need it. So for the most part it's been smooth you know. Of course got the winter storm here in the northeast and as far as i know hasn't caused any delays. That definitely sort of tells you the number type of variables that could be out of our control that could affect the future least particularly with the winter coming around. I'm getting my next the This morning at nine o'clock in our own hospitals in boston by smoothly but there are reports that pfizer saying that has doses in the warehouse. But it's looking for guidance on how to get the liberty that's one question about what's going to happen with the upcoming doses in the next couple of weeks because some hospitals are reporting. They've now been told by their state. There's going to be getting up your doses. So the the data about what. What exactly is going on. There is still here
NFL's Steelers-Ravens game postponed a third time due to Covid-19
"The nfl's in rough shape right now with this whole thing going on with the ravens and the steelers They're gonna try and get that game in at least as we record this. As of this moment there still going to try and get in the ravens and steelers game but man the ravens are just like. I think they're close to twenty employees now twenty players. I should say twenty players and then a number of others who are employees that That are off off. The can't play because of kobe whether they've been exposed or actually have it and it's a. It's a big problem with with the ravens right now in summer wondering okay is this. You know you guys handling this properly like it's it's gotten so bad with the ravens that may be the place to just have the ravens forfeit the game. Because he's got pretty soon. Maybe but in the meantime he's like you know obviously as a as a franchise you didn't do a very good job of keeping cove it at bay so maybe you should pay for that with an l. See all when you're passing enough tests to get back in the action.
California Votes To Keep Criminal Justice Changes
"Was a good day for criminal justice reformers. In California statewide voters resoundingly defeated a ballot measure that would have rolled back some reforms. And voted to give people on parole the right to vote in the Bay Area. Six police Accountability measures enjoyed strong support, and San Francisco's former district attorney, George Gascon, appears to be winning in his challenge to the more conservative sitting Los Angeles D A. But voters did reject an attempt to end money bail. Here to sort out what All this means is cake politics correspondent Marissa Lagos. Marissa, You have been covering criminal justice reform efforts in California for over a decade now, were you surprised by these results? You know, I wasn't surprised Hera. But I do think that it is a huge win for the reform side of things. I mean, we've heard for years ever since some of these changes started coming through both legislatively and at the ballot box. A lot of pushback from law enforcement and other folks who saw them is going to far and I think that voters weighing in s O decisively on both proposition 20 rejecting some of these rollbacks of reforms and also on some of these police oversight measures really does show a shift an opinion. I spoke to Kate Chatfield, she's policy director at the Justice Collaborative, which is a national pro reform group. She knows that proposition. 20 wasn't even close. Even though law enforcement worked really hard to make the case to voters standing is all the usual cards in the deck. You know the Willie Horton playbook, crime is increasing the fear based mailers in the voter saw through them. And Kate, of course, is referring to that. 1988 Presidential Willie Horton ad The really helped Republicans win and I think that you know, while the No 1 20 side spend a lot more money than the outside, and I think some folks see that is, you know, money talks. I do think that Given how much we've heard talked about these issues that voters it seems like they knew what they were weighing in on and just didn't want, Teo turn the tide back the other direction. Yeah, you know, proposition 25 that was aimed at Indian cash. Bail was pretty suddenly defeated. What happened there? Yeah, This is a really interesting one. I mean, I think there's a couple things happening. One is that you didn't have the same coalition on the left really backing this reform. There's a schism with a lot of people kind of on the more progressive wing of The Democratic Party. The bail industry also spent a lot of money on this, and I think that the combination of them targeting folks in places like Riverside County and more conservative counties with some of the doubt that was cast by progressives probably was the reason they were able to build this coalition against prop 25. But it does feel like if you look at the kind of universe of all these that that is a bit of an outlier. It was a very complicated questions, so that may have been part of it. So do you think these results could actually encourage state lawmakers to go even further in the future? I do. Although I don't expect to see any dramatic huge reforms come out of the Legislature. I think we'll see what we've seen in years past, which is piecemeal attempts to kind of dismantle some of the harsher sentencing laws. I do think from the outside that we're going to see more pressure from advocacy groups to push the Legislature further. It's worth noting that just before the election The Sisters of Polly class who was one of the crime victims who has really helped spur the three strikes movement in California, came out to say that they want to see reforms and that they are unhappy with the way three strikes when the way their sister's name was used. So lawmakers may not go as far as voters, but they're going to get some pressure. Well, thanks
A Fermentation Celebration (with Sam Pike)
"Hello, and welcome to misinformation Trivia podcasts for ladies and Gentlemen Cool Trivia and sticking it to annoying teams. It pop quiz where your hosts I'm Lauren and I'm Julia Hey, Joel Lord Hey you know it's getting chilly. We love those fall foods they're all coming up. and. One of the things that you can do in the fall I've heard I've never done it before is setup vegetables and fruits for the winter you know like our forth like in the olden days when you had a root cellar when yeah. When he had a root cellar, that's my mother likes to say. So I thought, that was a perfect time for us to bring on a very special guest four guests tober guests hct. which the song we will, we will put insert interesting music here. Hey everybody engineer Josh here instead of the guests over theme to apologize for some of the audio this week's episode we had record this in the afternoon. So we gave our baby to mind Mr Information Co host Steve to take a little nap. Unfortunately she woke up a couple of Times Mason commotion that we wouldn't get picked up on Mike, but it did I did my best. Mix wherever I could sponsor, it was possible or maybe some anise I just wanted to make clear that we're not ignoring her baby to do the podcast. She was just given the business on. That out of the way, please enjoy the show. But we have a wonderful guest today by former intern and a fermentation Guru Sam Pike Sam. Below thanks for being here to the show Sam. Pleasure to be here. Sam I. First thing you guys need to know about him is that he was one of our earliest and our best when I was working at the messy and when we first saw his because you know, you have to submit a CV when you're an intern at the se were various professional and we saw his full name. On the was Samuel Gag now pike and I we were like is this a civil war ghost? Is He? Has, he lived forever and so from there on in and God bless Sam for being such a good sport about we insisted that he was a civil war ghost, the entire time, and as long as I've known him, we continuously poke fun at the fact, and actually at one point Julian I got drunk and made up an entire TVs we planned to TV show around it's called the eternal soldier. He's been wandering the earth for the last two, hundred and thirty years and the theme song is Taylor Swift's welcome to New York because he obviously he writes into your and I'm right. GMT. Yeah, that's our TV. Show, and of course, he comes to New York obviously to solve murders. Yes. Yes as you do. CBS is all procedural. Oh. This is CBS show. I wasn't clear and also not for nothing Sam. I'm so sorry we took your so. We will not be paying you residuals at all. Right, let's get to play myself in the show. Absolutely you even look like a civil war coast. So being a minor and all, but anyway, I'm so sorry to take a any more of your time Sam. Please tell us what you're going to be talking to us today about. All right. So I'm Sam and I'm GonNa Tell You all about fermentation and the different kinds of from anticipation over the history of the science, some of the culture, some of the contemporary stuff too because it's still going it's still evolving in it is still advancing. That's very exciting. I gotTA. Tell you I don't know. Anything. Neither do I mean we've listened to people tell us about how they make wine and beer and Sticks didn't stick Yeah Yeast? Something marist. But we're GONNA find out from Sam Sam please take it away I cannot wait to hear So you guys know a bit about like beer and wine or vaguely about. One of the three kind of pillars of fermentation I'm GonNa talk about so. Wine and beer that's made leasing primarily. The same has made us us to make bread. Et for men's sugars endow. Hall. The other two types are lactoferrin venting often call Hick link that says what's called Lactobacillus the type of bacteria that can birds carbohydrates into Lactic. ACID. and. A. Few other things sometimes, sometimes a little bit of alcohol sometimes, Carbon Dioxide sometimes see the gasset which talk to cobb out more later. Ended the third kind is. It's in America's It's broadly called Koji fermenting. It's what's done to make down. Like soy sauce missile soccer it's hard. It's harnessing mold to ferment. To. ferment. Things, slightly different process Right so And Fuel Freeman feel free to interrupt me at any point to get clarification or. We will we will. Kind of assumed is much. You're used to be at this point. Sam. lactoferrin renting or using lactobacillus. That is what I know. The most is I teach frequent workshops on it's what I can and doing daily. If I should camera slightly he would see just a huge row of Sauerkraut sitting just above my. Yeah. Saint Ours and Jar Sam's Instagram is basically just bubbling jars of of who knows what that he forged from the woods? Yes. Exactly. Am I not wrong you're not. The worst part is a horrible habit of not labelling everything. Guess what stuff is in how old it is. It's never not been fine. So unsafe there. Oh, okay jars. Not sure. Sure of this is bad or not. Guess we'll try it. Snow tested. So, what leftover mentoring is, it's harnessing this bacteria that. Is. A little bit of chemistry right here that I don't I barely know about what it does. It takes carbohydrates newco simple sugars in which are the chemical makeup is c six, h twelve, O six and breaks down into a few other substances the most important one being lactic acid, which is see three, eight, six, three. And the reason that wants to sewn Horton is that lactic acid drops the key age of the substance of the buner making end makes it last longer preserve Okay. So. If you just let the food out, normally, it would just kind of like. Go. Get bad mold bad smell. Awful. This smells awful. The some people a lot of people, but it's still perfectly safe to eat even make some of the nutrients and minerals a lot more accessible. And the way people are the hardest. This bacteria easily been harnessing at for thousands of years is by adding salt. So that period that produces this lactic acid it can. Stay withstand able an acidic environment, but also a salty environment which things cannot do. So by adding salt, the cabbage is that bacteria will just quickly take over multiply in. ferment everything until it's perfectly say. That's interesting. It's incredibly easy to do at home for like. I mean, it was done accidentally first centuries think about it. The microscopes were invented until relatively recently, people really didn't know a dockyard east even was they just they kind of knew the process entitles like magic or a gift from God or something They're alive for theories they're really need them the basics remain laughter permitting is a vessel. It. More only time places. You'll see like crosser. Back of some sort. The easiest way to do it at home is just take a mason jar can old pickle jar or a refresh Lee bought Mason Jar, just. Cut Up some cabbage mix it with some salt N. just packed their real tight in. Let it for that. See you don't have to add any liquid or anything. So we're talking about SAUERKRAUT. You don't get any liquor sour talents was so frightening there's enough liquid in the cabbage itself OSMOSIS SIS in like chopping the cabbage bricks enough cell walls at all this water just gets leached at the cabbage in submerged the cabbage totally in its own liquids. That's that had no idea. There are few other vegetables like tomatoes are the same but something like that hickel cucumber. You could slice and mashed us that out but the relief roast texture. Yeah yes. He leave it whole than you make what's call it salt brine, which is just water and salt mixed together and just with the cucumbers in that, they just start permitting on their own.

Extra I appreciate it. Thanks Boys Arrived what an intro it's been a crazy couple few days as you can tell through my voice but. I still can't believe it. I it. It's nice to see you shared on first off. I thought there was no chance. You weren't to keep that going for the pod going to take it off, take it off of start. It off right but. You're speaking to your body. I heard you were having a sumo wrestling way offs with Ovechkin in the fucking. What's happened there? Who who had their? known everyone had me and and. I mean it was it was honestly what tonight that was to like. Doing way off with Ob and you know said there. Now of other boys I, mean it was not man like the whole the whole time. So it's good to hang out with those guys and actually have a couple of drinks get their personalities. Just who would ever thought I mean yourself. Acoustic. Saint Louis and to bring a cop to your hometown, and then you're you're not resigned which I trip them the other day I said, what we signed this guy fucking signed for nine hundred Tampa right like Jesus Christ but I digress. But then you go over to Tampa you've new John Cooper fifteen years ago whenever it was like just take me through your thought process on everything that's happened. If you really not even had the time to sit back and think about how special this has been. I mean I've had time but as you guys know the last. Few Days I've been. Pardons grank it. I've been bamboo go myself a couple days. So no I mean I had time. I mean when Kook got the call and he? When he called me, I got the call from it was you know he was like, Hey, what are you thinking about coming to Tampa let me talk to joy on Jimmy. Call Conversation with some other teams in the work but until then I wanted to go to a team that I wanted to win on and. And I thought Tampa. What they went through last year was I thought I can help their locker room I'm not going to help them on the scoresheet every single night but I know I can help them stick out from their teammates they can play a little bigger you know like Kuch can play bigger Tyler Johnson Stammer, Polat they can all play bigger and feel comfortable they have no No someone that can protect them that knew that a group That one at all and and I know I had history with winning Kooks. So was just icing on the cake. So I think he needed is good luck charm to win that cup for. You're too modest about the scoresheet thing because you're picking off sauce in the final game a mid air in the neutral zone. How good that one feel That felt good. How? Those are some Sekhmet Sarah, you look like, Kucherov on every single fucking bad pass that goes around him. He's like he's like the video game. If you just put it in his vicinity, he's going to find a way to get it on a stick in order to make a play. That guy is ridiculous. Kucherov in when he's in warm ups. Going like sixty percent and then that's a game. percent. Sean areas give me a shout out to about my stick. So. I can't complain about that. Now I mean fuck I don't know I black out there they go ahead my hands up in their bitching at the bench is you're telling me to get off and I was. Still made the places like shut up I know how long should be here. This long enough best partners I thought Volkov. It his first game and I was going nuts. Now's like who scored that I go to the pilots Coleman I was like Oh shit maybe I should have changed. Unreal that we've talked to other guys about the day to day aspect of the bubble and obviously you guys one in a great view guys. But how challenging did a gift? Not necessarily you but just the daily day to day grind of every day the same thing over and over again. I'm in it was a grind for sure. Are I think the problem is like? I'm so used to. An old but I'm used to leave an anthony every single year obviously the year before stayed in St Louis but I always used to being away from family. And I know some guys were asking me questions you know what it's like and it's GonNa hit home for you when you're two weeks and then a month and in a bubble that. You're a month and a half man and your family you can't see your kids and. And then when you get into. Yourself closer to the Stanley. Cup or the conference finals here trying to get your family Americans can't come in, but the Canadians can. Kinda sucks, and but we came together as a group during that whole time Toronto. We had Polka Ball. We had We had tennis courts. We had a pool outdoor We had like five restaurants. We had the beam oldfield where you can go over and play Spike Ball. Soccer football play catch. You know there's kind of a bar outside there's a restaurant open there at five o'clock. So we had we had thanks to do and trial. Then when you got the advertisement was kind of. The we call it the prison yard, which it wasn't, but it was a cement concrete where you can tell why guys in Edmonton were struggling probably more than the guys who? got the free ice caps. So I heard. Horton's. Best the. A free double doubles in the front. And So yeah, I mean it was. It was tough at times for sure when you're sitting there grinding your way, but we're fortunate to have a good team. So we never felt like we were out of it and I know you guys touched on a bit like when the teams down three one, three two or you kinda thrown in the towel just to get home like we didn't have that feeling we had a feeling. We're like we were wedding every single game and we're never done in this series resides in Boston down beside besides Dallas and so we always knew we'd find a way so. We're going home mentality attitude we came together. You know obviously. You guys know hotels you you. You have a few drinks, but it's Kind of hanging out and you really don't have anyone Cannellino beside yourself and your body is at your part of the team. So you kind of have to make make ends meet and I thought we did a good job with that.
