Los Angeles school board approves new regulations affecting charter schools
"Board voted this week on new regulations. That affect charter school. Some charter advocates say this could be in fewer new charter schools opening up and others possibly shutting down a new state law give school district's more power over whether to approve new charter school applications and the L. A school board. Okay. New rules, which outline how they deal with those requests, the California Charter Schools Association believes This could hurt families by limiting educational choices. Cassie Horton is with the association. This is a challenge for all existing charters, including definitely are high quality schools that are really moving the needle for kids. From historically disadvantaged community and school board member Nick Melvoin is unhappy, too. He says he's been trying to end the war between charter schools in the district. I'd like us to be in a point where we can mitigate charter growth naturally by improving district schools that but not by shutting down high performing schools or telling parents they don't have a great public school options L. A already has more charter schools than any other city in the country.

"Cohen to come in and be superheroes and to lead the charge in a full Ron. Paul Revolution Style fashion that you know we are absolutely sick of it and we don't have to take this anymore and let's fight. You know the real problem here is the military industrial complex, the federal, reserve system, and their crony banks, the big pharmaceutical companies and their patents on their medicines. The insurance cartels who outlaw competition, the hospital companies outlaw competition that federal subsidies for the student loans, the drive up the prices through the roof, the the coups, and the drug wars in Latin America that Dr Waves of immigrants from they're failed states that America failed for them and on and on and on and on. Here's what we're to stop doing. Here's what. We're going to grind to a halt that are all the things that are ruining our country because it doesn't have to be this way it just doesn't and picture it. This is what it would be like with no income tax no fine on earning money and success in the marketplace. This is what it would look like to not have swat teams do a navy seal nitrates in poor people's homes in the name of drug contraband. This is one of the look like so wash city grew burn when they fail. And watch all of their good assets get bought up in bankruptcy court at auction from them making bad loans that they can't keep up with, and this is what it will look like when liberty rains in America and everything is Okay and all the crises that our government has created have been thwarted deaths shouldn't be that hard man in the year two, thousand twenty. But if the only libertarian arguments, you ever really made were just SORTA Kinda hypothetical ones about a hypothetical future America say for example, a Swiss foreign policy. Now. No, this is exactly her line, but her campaign is told her to keep saying we need a Swiss foreign policy of armed neutrality, but the thing is. Swiss foreign policy is not really a cliche like it used to be of their neutrality. Back. After the Second World War and whatever. But. If you say something about Switzerland, people just think of a knife or a watch or a secret bank account or something they don't think that that piece it's not a synonym for peace in a way that it was ill and people wanna be Switzerland. Nobody wants to Switzerland. Or the America right? This is the USA and and. And the thing is that we are the world. Empire Right now, America is the dominant force on the planet. So I say, okay find our neutrality like Switzerland. Will what does that look like? You have to finish the sentence. We're GONNA pull our troops out of Europe and Asia and the Middle East and we leave Latin. America the hell alone we're going to sink ninety percent of our navy and what's left is gonNA float offshore pointing out, and then we're going to be limited Republicans of a world empire. We're GONNA slash the budget and it'd be great. You gotta say something. That's. Pretty. polly us. I mean, okay, that's a pretty good message. You just put out there, but you know it's an equally good one. Glad that Joe Biden has brought another woman into the numb skinny. I'm not gonNA again not going to make him NOCCO threat. Listen I know we need a Ron Paul I've met Ron Paul I've read Ron Paul George Benson. Paul Hi it's just that's unfortunate I. I got a I got to wrap up there. Let me. I'm about to mail you this today. Yes I'm so excited. It's so good. It's sheldon rich was new book. He's my partner, the executive editor at the Libertarian Institute Libertarians Dot Org Slash Books for the book and see here it's about three hundred pages. It is Seventy two I think essays about libertarianism from the Great Sheldon Richmond, and this is explicitly an argument to the left and from the left four libertarianism the title. Let me explain this because it might sound like a little bit of a title to people who don't understand. Are you familiar with William Graham Sumner was the great writer from about one hundred and twenty years ago, and he was the guy who wrote this essay. You'll love this essay. If you've never read it, you may have it's called the conquest of the United States by Spain. About how it's about how America won the war against Spain. But we turned ourselves into Spain evil corrupt. blood-soaked theft driven empire, which is what we were never supposed to be. So it's a conquest of America by Spain is that's that's who William Graham Sumner is great guy. But Anyway, he had written a book called what social classes to each other and so then Sheldon's book then is a takeoff on that. And of course, you know the answer what does social animals? Oh each other non-aggression. That's it. That's all you know each other but then this is the explanation for all your leftist friends by any good leftist good. Liberal Progressive Marxist. Who Cares about people ought to be a libertarian because we're the ones who got what you want. As opposed to those who make their wild claims failed to fulfill them. All right. Well, I'm very excited to read it and I'd love to have sheldon on after I a read it. So we can talk about it. I'm putting in the mail to you today, Dave all right sounds good. Always pledged to talk to you brother. Thank you very much for another great one and we'll do it again soon. Thanks everybody for listening..
'The Greatest Spectacle In Racing': Indy 500 To Run Without Spectators
"33 teams 500 miles and a century's worth of history. It's the Indianapolis 500. But this year there won't be any fans in the stands to see what's been called the greatest spectacle in racing, Samantha Horton from Indiana, Public broadcasting reports. This is what the 500 sounds like on a normal race day war of hundreds of thousands of fans overtaking sounds of the core engines in the final few laps, But this year's race will sound a little more like this along to 2.5 mile track. The race has always taken place in May, but pandemic response upon two back to August 23rd. Roger Penske, who bought the track earlier this year, was still hoping to have tens of thousands of race fans in attendance. But that hope faded in June, when race officials announced half attendance then 25% and then no. One. It was a decision. Race officials tried to prevent Indianapolis Motor Speedway President Doug Bowles says a comprehensive health plan was even developed to try to have fans attend the race. So really, from the moment in March, we knew that we needed to start thinking about what could the Indianapolis 500 look like with a bunch of restrictions and in order to make sure that we took care of everyone's health and safety, But even with these precautions, Spectators were ruled out.

"You know the Anti Apartheid Movement of the eighties I was a big deal in the nineteen eighties to end apartheid. It's absolutely unacceptable the regime in south. Africa. Well, what makes Israel any better than they got a powerful lobby in DC that powerful democratic politician, Dare Not Cross, and of argument? Yeah. It's really crazy to with with Kamala Harris and Barack Obama. The examples just used have they will use this idea of racism whenever it's politically convenient for them to kind of lecture their opponents or lecture the American people about your attitudes just aren't quite enlightened enough and you. Know. There's really major issue of like some unconscious bias or something like that. You know like go really you know the wax poetic about all that stuff yet they will indicate of Barack Obama side with like a a regime that's just slaughtering black people enslaving black people and Kamala, Harris will and Kamala Kamala Harris quite literally enslaving black people in California I mean and it's just really something in it. It's kind of eye-opening about how that whole you know narrative of using the idea of racism. It gets used very intentionally end conveniently to kind of box people in like. Escape. Hatch. Right. Either we can abolish qualified immunity and we can subject police officers to the same laws everybody else or we can get rid of the syrup bottle and you know make this all about your corrupt emotions, George W.. Bush did this to he put out a thing about four or five weeks ago. Saying win will white Americans. Ever heal the racism in their hearts will. This is the guy who gave tanks to ten thousand police. Departments gave the machine guns gay them training at Fort Bragg with our special operations forces. And he was saying the problem Dave's at your big. George W Bush the guy who soaking in the blood of a million dead Arabs make that too. Yell and postions. Now, no, it's really it's it's really something and the way, and then of course, these labels they they may get like this they really helped to foster create is culture of you know an and of course, playing on decent people's emotions that like yeah. Well, WE WANT TO BE AGAINST RACISM I've seen a you know a whole bunch of movies where the racist is some really irredeemable horrible guy and I've seen you know poor black people who have a Worst go of life than do. So I'm against racists and then it's like a crude they call raises. Well, it's like, okay it's always like Ron Paul or tap chan or anyone who opposes the wars ends up being labeled as race as and then even Tulsi, Gabbard, they tried to dig into her father's pretty weird with the gays I don't know she might have a problem with like is if any of you guys actually care about racism or homophobia is just Gently. Like well, anybody who's like against the Empire Oh yeah. That's well that must just be obviously a closet raises even if even if there's no trace of anything racist in anything, they've ever said the very conveniently is that labeled as really works you know four the status. Yeah. Rice did this great during a rock where she goes look a lot of people say that we shouldn't do this because Arabs aren't ready for democracy. Well, that's like saying that Rosa? Parks should have to stay at the back of the bus and all that. So now it's the civil rights movement. That's what George Bush's war in Iraq. It's it's exporting all mlk would have done. You know regime change in Mesopotamia to help teach the good people about democracy of course, and it really does it plays on decent people's emotions because like your average you know like decent person out there who doesn't pay close attention to all this stuff there are great WHOA I don't WanNa be the guy. Hussein. Rosa parks should be at the back of the bus like, yeah. We these people should be liberate I mean really is effective. It wouldn't. It would not have gone on this long if there wasn't utility to it but I wonder. You know how the real weird. So I mean you were talking on the phone I think a few weeks ago and we were like kind of joking about this. But Biden basically you know in the most naked, the worst version of identity politics, and by the way I don't I don't use that term a lot in a negative way like some people do they rail against identity politics, i. personally believe that there are good versions of identity politics like managed. To Ray that organization black guns matter I didn't that's identity politics, but it's like a wonderful version of identity politics. Okay. You WanNa talk to black people about why gun control has always been racist and how you know like a peaceful black people arming themselves at Goodman. Okay I. think that's Great. But the worst form of identity politics is like Joe Biden being like I'm going to pick a black woman as my vice president and me and you were the phone about. That's actually the shittiest thing you could do to your vice president. If you wanted to be, you know to help your vice president you would say like even if you wanted to pick a black woman, you'd say, I'm GonNa. Find the absolute best person for the job and then pick a black woman and she was the best person for the job. You don't start off by said I'm not looking for the best person looking for the best black woman and this. One is the best one. I could find. It's it's absurd but it's it's obviously trying to somehow bridge this gap which like obviously the the left wing choice for president was Bernie Sanders, the centrist you know neo liberal progressive establishment choice was Joe Biden, and so you want kind of you know in some way throw something to this like I don't know some some identity -tarian bone to whoever you perceive to care about this on the left wing and it's just It's interesting..

"A brand new episode of part of the problem. Very excited to have a one of my favorite people in the world as the guest of for today's show of course, the Great Scott, Horton author of the Great Ron Paul Author Fools Aaron time to end the war in Afghanistan. The host of the Scott Workman show antiwar radio, and of course, he's also also runs the Libertarian Institute, which is a wonderful organization with a lot of. Really great people that put up just a ton of really great work and Scott, usually, is is on the show to discuss foreign policy matters that is kind of his area of expertise but he's he's great on everything and so I wanted to talk to Scott about Joe Biden's VP I did I thought he was going to end up going on Susan Rice, and so I thought we'd be having a different conversation all about war crimes in trees in. We're just GonNa have a nice conversation about destroying the lives of poor black people. You know it's it's as close as you can get without quite being treason. So I wanted to say and we can talk. A lot about this. I'm interested to get your take my I thought about the Kamala. Harris. Pick as Joe Biden's VP was that. Well, I guess number one I would say that Joe, Biden? His VP. Pick matters a lot a lot more than your average presidential campaigns and I remember back in two thousand eight. When I just I been introduced to. Libertarian ideas. and. People said this about John McCain because John McCain was older and they were like you know his BP pick really matters because like he could die while he's in office that's not that crazy and I. think that's a reasonable position. Your John McCain's BP. Matters a lot more than Barack Obama's VP pick matters. And they would hit him with that happened. You pick Sarah Palin this this dummies the she can't be the president and. That's a reasonable critique. We'll same. Joe. Biden and even more. So because he's older than McCain was and he's older than McCain was at the time and then the other thought I had was just that you know much like with Mitt Romney running in two thousand twelve when you have these these. Republicans were furious about Obamacare and you have the tea party movement. This is the number one issue, and then what are they do they put up the guy who owns the affordable care act to implemented in Massachusetts right here in twenty twenty what is what? What is the the Democrats really exercised about right now while they're out in the streets about police brutality, and so of course, they put up the author of the ninety four crime bill as their president and they put up a cop as the VP. It's just mad. They just don't care all what the people are telling them they want. Yeah, absolutely. Not In fact the New York Times coverage of it. They said, well, she was the safe pick the democratic strategist it's like she didn't have any strong negatives. There was nothing really going against her, and so the first rule of picking the VP Kennedy should be do no harm and she will do no harm like they have no idea that she's radioactive. Among the left wing base because then give a damn about the left wing base and they figure they completely own them anyway and hey, she's a black woman and so that's ought to be a good enough sop for you and that's their whole attitude and they may be right that really you know the Bernie eits might complain that she's a cop and whatever but for them. That's good. You know. Thank goodness that she'll be credible to the police who are an important constituency out there you know them and their unions and and what will the militarists thank you know how can they trust her if she's Bad on the police state from their point of view here she wants to rollback the police say here she might WanNa roll back abroad. So I think probably everything that she has done in her career that would make the likes of you were me or libertarians or the people on the left that centers on the left hater or all the things that are actually what makes the strongest candidate you know that make her a reliable person from the point of view of those without. There's no question she was a beloved by the establishment they really tried to push are quite hard in the presidential race I mean she was like if you listen to any of the BS corporate press cable, news shows up with the exception of Fox News they were just I mean praising her from the very beginning she was like the presumptive nominee before there even been poll taken, and if you listen to any of the or read anything in the major newspapers after that first abate, they all told you that she was dominant and that she won and that she the clear front runner, the issue was. That nobody liked her the nobody liked her and she she has this this mix of standing for nothing and being incredibly unlikable. She's Really Hillary Clinton esque in that regard bursts out laughing at her own words that arm even jokes like a very strange demeanor and and then of course, she was nuked by Tulsi Gabbard and that was pretty much the end of her presidential run. And Yeah Tulsi Gabbard made the shortest work of her that you know you call yourself progressive prosecutor but I'm not seeing that and just a couple of examples and there are many examples and actually did some work this morning. You know for you to make sure I was ready for this. When you talk all about it. But just what Tulsi Gabbard brought up was you invoked technicalities to keep an innocent man on death row. And the crowd was. Dead silence it's like, okay. What are you got now? Oh. Yeah. Were you love? That didn't work. She didn't even respond. She even respond with that. She had nothing she just I'm proud of the job I dad. Sponsors later today the next day she's like, okay I talked to my people and they said, you love odd. Right. So who cares if I kept it, it isn't mad on death row. You saw will unlock people for smoking weed. Let's talk with Eric Garris today and he was. Involved with and paying very close attention to the whole movement in the Mid Nineteen Nineties to legalize medical pot in California. So I state that legalized medical pot and when they did she was one of the ones who did everything she could to make essentially moot and make it impossible to implement and continue to harass people and authorize you know drug raids on them as though hadn't been legalized and all that stuff she was absolutely horrible on pot up until she ran for president. Now only then did she say Oh, yeah no, we ought to legalize it and that was the other thing that Gabbard hitter on was you locked up fifteen hundred people for smoke await locked him in jail for week. But then when you were asked if you smoke weed, you laughed about it. and. Again, the audience was dude that's pretty bad like maybe there was a previous time where people would have thought that was funny and trivial and something like that. But yeah, no, it's not and you know the thing about maybe we'd itself is trivial but then that's the point. Right? He's talking about taking people away from their families away from their jobs away from their stable situations and locking them in a cage over completely. Trivial possession of plant. So that doesn't make the issue trivial that makes it the most important thing in the world and because pot smoking is so widespread that means that they can just use it as a pretext to harass people all the time you know virtually you know in a city everybody's within nodes shot of the smell of weed a pretext to kick in any door, open any trunk or harass anybody walking on a sidewalk. It's very hard to even measure the actual damage that's done in like the ripple effects like how many people have lost their job because they were arrested were no-show no call the next day, and now this has a big effect on their lives how many people got probation and then got busted for like some minor little thing like having a drink or leaving the state or something like that. And they go to jail for that. So not technically for pop, but it's really all about for pot but I really think even more select like me and you like bleeding heart libertarians like us what we really care about is like liberty and we hate injustice, and so you're like a human being is thrown in a cage over having a harmless little plant that like that's what really exercises us. Think the real reason which also exercises me but the real reason why I think that resonated so much is because we live in this populist moment both populous right and populous left, and there's really something about pointing out that you fucking elite at you elitists you you force these rules on other people but you laugh at the idea of these rules being enforced on you I think it's the. Same thing as when people see at the baseball game sitting in the stands next people without a mask gone and you like.
The Future of Travel
"Hello and welcome to another episode of this week in travel. The only travel show that really isn't even about travel anymore because no one can travel and it's not weekly. So it's pretty much ally. With me as usual, Oh, I should add I am coming from the beautiful state of Wisconsin. Now. Officially pulled up stakes and left Minnesota permanently So no more of that. With me metropolis of Horton Ville. Yeah for the time being at least. For for at least a few months. That voice you hear is, of course Mr Chris Come at you from Lovely San Jose California, how are you doing Sir I'm doing well, sir. Excellent. Also from California the Lovely Jen Leo, how're you doing jen? I'm doing great and I'm back from a three week cross country road trip. So I actually do get some travel in this summer, Gary. Well I technically did to it's just an involved a U. Haul. And almost. Packing. Thursdays so Excellent. Also chuckling in the background Mr Spud Hilton. How are you doing? Sir Doing Great I just came back from the corner liquor store. So that was that was my big trip of the week so. That's not So my question for you is Muscatel thunderbird. You know I find that ripple tends to be a highly underrated wine of a fine vintage So sometimes, night train sometimes ripple. We used to get when I was in college was on the debate team we'd travel and we were poor. So we would get mad dog twenty, twenty. Oh. Yeah. Oh my God that was. Nasty. Nasty stuff. Our guest. This week is actually somebody does know about Travel Robert Cole. He's a strategist. He's a consultant and he knows a whole lot about the hospitality industry. Welcome to the show. Sir Well, it's great to be here. Big Fan of the show longtime listener first-time Gust so. I'm surprised we haven't on your head you on the show before. Creek Chris was saying is on show you know seventeen hundred total. So I figure hey, I made the top two thousand. What the heck this show. That's true to something. Right. Now, that's very pleased to be here. All right. Well, let's get onto some news stories. spud brought us this one. Gun seizures at airports are up threefold. And I don't think there's a fold increase in travelers going through airports. So. What do you think is the reason for this we went up from five point wh. Why should say it per capita thing I think. So it's fifteen point three guns. Every million passengers screened in July compared to five point one per million in two, thousand nineteen. So the rate has gone up. I don't think it's an absolute increase what thinks the reason will you got to protect yourself from? The? COVID? Vaccine? Virus. Roller. Arms or definitely the way to go there. I mean it's the TSA which you know brought this up has a great instagram account where they like to. Show Hey, here's all the guns. We got this month. and. The picture that they have on this one is you know it's every picture of a gun is so postage-stamp because there's so many they just the for whatever reason it's gone way up they don't speculate on why but they are quick to remind you. That civil the civil financial penalty for bringing an unloaded gun to check point is two thousand and fifty dollars and it starts at forty one hundred dollars if the gun is loaded and actually TSE's. Instagram site, you'll find out that most of them are loaded. Usually and carry on luggage. They're not necessarily there patting the person down. Yeah, you're actually allowed to take the gun in A. You know in a check luggage you have to pay. You're flying obviously, right. But. These are people who brought them in their carry on luggage and just thought, Hey, I'm a gun on what's the problem here? And apparently, they're folks who clearly don't fly that often or don't pass the sat very often.
Digging for the truth
"The Welcome to kiss Miss Mystery signed your host. Kit crump night been receiving a usual amount of people wondering how I tracked down the facts refined the truth when I'm working on a story. So I'm going to run down the process I'd take when investigating and urban legend and try to give a couple of examples, I i. look for anyone that actually experienced the event if that individual doesn't want to talk to me, which is usually the case. Then, I attempt to track down a witness to the event. Often when there are someone that actually experienced a paranormal event, let's say they are often embarrassed or reluctant to speak to anyone for fear, they're going to be criticized or accused of making up the entire event in some cases that involve things political or the government I can utilize the freedom of information. Act But they usually take forty five days or more to respond if the event. Is something that was reoccurring. Then I can tap into police be I reports. However, they are often. So editor redacted with black lines disliked trying to figure out a code to best understand the process will recite a couple of examples I of flying saucer that crashed at Roswell keep in mind that I'm going to leave out a lot of detail and I'm only going to explain off the flying saucer itself no alien bodies involved in this first. Trace the image of a saucer back to nineteen forty seven in horten brothers who created both a saucer and flying wing both brothers were brought back to the United States with two hundred and fifty other scientists at the end of the war in something that was called project paper clip. You may have heard of this where in the United States could the Horton's and other scientists work well, area fifty one of course at what became area fifty one. I continue this option that they would continue work on the flying wing or flying saucer I. Now Research Project Rainbow is a program using some of Tesla's science in an effort to move a battleship from point a to point b you might know this as a Philadelphia experiment. The idea was not to make anything invisible simply to move it from one place to. Another and the military failure they had made a small battleship both vanish and move from one point to another. Now, they bring that science to the Horton saucer and it becomes up flying saucer. The problem is that they can't control the Horton's flying saucer any better than the L. Ridge which was the battleship they tried it out on initially with line saucer vanishes and. then. Reappears eight hundred miles away word crashes at Roswell New Mexico this. You'd give you a very rough idea of the thinking connecting process. Keep in mind that if I have a strange unexplained event, I don't want to go to the authorities or police wrath be I with whatever because they are not equipped for accurate reports on things that go bump in the. Night that leads me to my second example a while back I got a book did explained away dozens and dozens of urban legends is a hundred percent boss. But when I opened the book to the first one, the author said, it could possibly be happening yet. I know for a fact, kidney harvesting does happen and is going on in the United States right now. The book explained away the notion that people are having their kidneys harvest it well, here's what I know. Twenty years ago I was in a restaurant with my editor. The booking question was my book body parts a story I had written about the sale of block market body parts as I was explaining the research a waitress came over and told us how some of her friends had gone to New Orleans and one of them strayed from the group in hoax. So picking up a woman for the night, they had all been. Showing an apartment and she said he would join them in the morning. If he simply ended up closing down a few bars long story short when he didn't show up, they manage to track him down to a flop house where they found him in a bathtub filled with ice less one kidney. So they get into a local hospital at an after examination. The doctor tells them that the surgery necessary to remove that kidney without killing the patient had been carried out in a surgical unit with a team of surgeons trained to. Remove a kidney. This waitress didn't know either my editor or myself. She said her friend who lost a kidney lives in Ashland Oregon but I never tried to contact him but you could see from this second example, how many urban legends are often just dismissed out of hand. The author of that book I was mentioning dismissed the kidney harvesting only consulted police in several doctors. Of course, neither of his sources would have anything to do with kidney harvesting for a lot of different reasons not to mention that harvesting any Oregon is. A federal offense
Sharp drop for US consumer confidence in July to 92.6 as coronavirus spreads
"We've got some consumer confidence numbers out today, and I guess not surprisingly, they for July that came in weaker than June, and presumably that reflects Kind of the surging covert cases were seeing it such key key U. S markets as California, Texas and Florida to get some color on how the consumers doing welcome Lynn Franco, She's director of economic indicators at the conference board. Then give us some color. On what your data show this morning. Well following a large increase in June. We've seen a bit of a retreat in consumer confidence. And while consumers are telling us that the present situation has improved a little bit, naturally tied into the re opening of the Economy because overall still remain well where we were pre pandemic levels. They are expressing some caution concern about short term out which could any PAC spending in the coming months. No, it's interesting, Lynn. You know, we see the unemployment numbers. You see that jobless claim numbers all terribly terribly negative. But one area the economy that continues to do well is home ownership to get some more data today about Home sales. We had some good results in home builder D. H. Horton, What's How do you guys track kind of home ownership housing that kind of thing in your index. Well, we're seeing also a bit of a spike in percent of consumers who say they intend to purchase a home in the next couple of months. That went up from 6.827 point four s o, I think you know, sort of all time. Low mortgage rates, obviously feeding into the desire. Imagine To buy a home. It's interesting, and you know, one of the key issues, I guess for the consumer clearly has been fiscal stimulus. Congress earlier had their third round of fiscal stimulus a couple of months ago where that $3 trillion number which is truly Historic and more now under negotiations that the folks down in Congress and it seems to be quite a bit of Ah, I guess dispute about kind of how this fourth round of stimulus what it should include how big it should be. A ll that type of thing. How is fiscal stimulus factored into the data that you see at the conference board? I think it just cultures into the overall economic outlook, and you know what we're seeing here is. Consumers are somewhat concerned about economic growth, labor market growth, and they remain pretty lukewarm, so to speak on their income prospects, So we have there at least a number of optimists equaling the number of pessimists. So they may be waiting to see what the stimulus package entails. But overall, they did not know very cautious about their income prospects over the last couple of months. And I know you guys have kind of expectations. Index too, And I'm guessing that retreat it is that is that a regional? Can you track that regionally so California less optimistic than, say, the folks in New York state Absolutely and where we saw the largest declines or in states where we're seeing, you know a spike in the virus No Michigan, Florida, Texas and California, But you take a look at New York and seeing a bit of a bounce back there. In terms of the how they rate. Current conditions, though, however, is still somewhat would say recessionary levels, but they're a little bit more optimistic about where we're headed. Sound, but other states in particular nowhere the resurgence has really taken hold are seeing sharp declines double digits in some places of more than 20 points. Which is a pretty dramatic retreat in consumer confidence. Consumers that you track and your index. How did they feel about the job market again? Jobless claims have been brutal, but we have seen some rebound and the last couple of months in total unemployment total jobs. What's kind of the consumers outlook for the job market. If we take a look at where their rating it right now, we could see a very modest improvement, 20.5% said Jobs were plentiful last month. That's up to 21.3. But if you sort of look in the mirror, we were 43.3% and 46.5% You know, pre pandemic levels. So what we have seen a little bit of improvement as we well know, you know, unemployment claims continued to rise. And looking ahead six months They've grown a bit more pessimistic, and I was born from about 38.4% chain expected more jobs to a reading of 30.6 in July. So there is some concern is where the economy and the recovery is headed. Interesting. Lynn Franco. Thanks So much for joining us again with your leading economic index, director of economic indicators for the conference board. Consumer, I guess again, not surprisingly, becoming a, you know, a little less optimistic relative to say, June and that clearly Reflects the flare up We've seen again in some of those Kiki markets includes just massive markets like Texas again. California, Florida You've got to think that has a big big impact on those consumer confidence numbers. And

Simpson's longtime simpsons writer. He's one of the best the best. That's awesome. Let's get some quickest because these things happen. Okay, major divide is happening in the community of cross fit enthusiasts in the wake of the comments made Saturday night by the company's CEO Greg Lassie I think what is happening now with the George Floyd protest and whatnot. It's like the NBA finals in that. Your weaknesses will be exposed. I mean you play the NBA finals and you don't have a good bench. You will know that you don't have power forward. You don't have a backup center. We will come to find out social media plus pandemic lockdown loss heightened awareness and broach as equal or weaknesses. So in response in response to a tweet by the Institute for Health Metrics and evaluation, calling racism and discrimination quote public health issues which I believe that they agreed. They are public health issues the CEO. Greg glassman said quote. It's Floyd nineteen. Is he trying to be funny. Try this is what is like. Don't be funny. 'cause already like. Let's just take everything out of it and be like as a joke just sitting on the job on its own. That's not even a good joke. What is if? Think I think it's just like one of those moments where he had comics. Where you're just talking somewhere with some reason, people are in front of people you not supposed to be. Being yourself in front of and that that Joe pop in his head and he was like if I don't say this now, I might not ever have another chance to say. And it came out, but here's the difference between you and me. We do that at a dinner party and. You walk away and get something to drink. He doesn't. And a half then it stays, it states, and half the cross fit community is like I don't want and Reebok is like we don't WanNa work with his dude anymore. You understand if. Our people at least corporate America's getting in on this like backing away from people like that's when Shit unfortunately it changes in America and there's corporate dollars to be lost.

Look at him and Ben. Rothlisberger shy. Take the sixteen year old girl into that bathroom. No! He doesn't do it. Fine every single person does something dumb.

Over here in the right man that is is, it's just amazing to me that like this is going to be a new thing that's going to be taught to athletes like it's not just you everybody in your sphere. You knew being an athlete getting paid what you get paid for the brief time that you get to do, it is a very special. We talk about the funnel right. It's the same thing and we. We sat down. We talked about this talk. Athletes are. Someone the the funnel okay. A lot of people can play high school sports, not all not everybody, but likely high school sports. The funnel gets more narrow when you get to college sports, and then it's like a little, tiny, little tiny hole, and that's all that gets through into into professional sport. That's it there's like.

"horton" Discussed on View from the Cheap Seats
"Hey guys welcome to cheap seats. We all the sklar brothers, and excuse me for the cheap seats and We have a fantastic show today I feel like we got the exact person I wanted to talk to. Everything that's going on. Currently in the world sports specifically what we'll talk about at the top the show, just a little bit about our guests He's an amazing comedian. He's really blossomed into a fantastic writer. Is Now writing Dunkin go? Which is the new? Animated series odd socks I mean network box. He's working through the pandemic. He used to play a Collie played college. Football was a strong safety. And so he knows what it's like to be in a locker room. WE'RE GONNA get into it and talk about and get his sort of opinion on how how the racial divide can be bridged in places Orleans, if at all, if it all and also, how do we move forward with sports in light of everything that's going on? It's fascinating. Great Conversation is name is Doron Great Comedian will get him than later on the show Kris. Kris Kristofferson has woken up in. He is woke. Yes, he is, he's woke and he's awoke. Yes, we'll get to him, but I kind of happened right after we recorded last week's episode but we thought we'd just dig into it now because we really didn't have a chance last week because we had already record the episode of WanNa. Talk about because it's it's Kinda gotten legs. Apologies of happened or we're talking about drew brees. Coming out basically last week the end of last week with the most I would say tone deaf approach in the worst our timing for him to in this moment right now. Talk about how so he didn't bring it up, so let me just say that he definitely feel that the question from A. Financial. I've CNBC I. Don't know who it was. Who was interviewing him? But it's it was like a financial newspaper or station, and they asked him about. Colin Kaepernick kneeling in light of what's been going on right now. And how he felt about it, and he sort of regurgitated in old miss sort of misnomer from that entire experience, which is. He started standing up from the flag. Saying I'll never support anyone who disrespects the flag on my granddad fought for whatever I'm not gonNA support. Anyone disrespects the national land when I look up at that flag is see the thing that my grandfather fought for which by the way that's great fine. I'm I'm so happy that Bud Moments to misconstrue something that he knows wasn't about that. There is no possible way that if you're in the world of football as an athlete that you could possibly be so shielded from what the original intent of those protests were so one of two things. Either he is so shielded and is so out of touch that he would make a comment like that currently what the climate of the world and how it's going right now? When the world is changed white black, Asian Mattino. All people are staying together with our black brothers and sisters. There are marching in Germany and Brussels and London. For Black lives matter, which is an American thing, I know it's worldwide in certain areas, but like this is a very specific American thing. The Way America black people are policed in this country for him to not realize it in that moment. What he was saying was misinformation and incorrect, and would be construed by his own teammates as a racist thought in his teammate spoke out about his teammates gave very cheerful. wrought. Admissions of they couldn't believe it drew would say this right now. This is their quarterback is the guy they fight for? This is the guy they domicile Jenkins those to those were the most spoken outspoken about it, and we're beautiful, and their messages were beautiful. Their disappointment was real real tears in the post. always keep that in house. Keep it in house, but they just couldn't even keep it in house. They had to speak out. So that's how much you know they felt like. Like, they needed to so either. You're so out of touch that like you don't know what you're black brothers. teammates are going through in this instance run. You didn't sit down to talk to them to ask their side of the story. It's best if you don't understand it to not say anything on just listened. That's that's one of the key lessons out of this moment, and he didn't hear it so or you're trying to angle for your angling, so Randy's attitude is that. That he's Angling to run for office in this speaking out to a constituency in a base that would agree one hundred percent with what he's saying actually, he wasn't only talking to them in a close private event. He put this out there, and it went out, and it went viral and went wild, so then he had to double back a day later or two days later, and he apologize wholeheartedly apologized. He gave it a full apology. However, you have to question in this moment is. Is the apologizing because apologizing because the backlash because he knows he's got to go back into that locker room and face those guys in lead that team or is he apologizing because he very rightly so and deeply understood. How wrong was to say what he said? Hope, it's number two. We always wanted to, but we don't know and will never actually know, and because we won't know and we don't know there will be people who will question his integrity on the on the apology. But that being said there will be protests and trump is already going after the actual Razi letting drew brees actually Kinda quieted some of his critics, some of his critics, and definitely connected with his teammates, started to build the sort of tried to rebuild those relationships with that first step of an actual full throated apology, but three days later. DONALD TRUMP SAYS I don't know why drew brees was apologizing for his initial statement I stand with you, disrespect old glory, then bring dredging all up again and creating divisiveness that divided. That locker room is a microcosm. As, larger example, any did it New Orleans. Man, I understand if you're in Jacksonville Florida or if you're in? North Carolina or if you're in another state Georgia even. Even Atlanta is that it is much more progressive much more racially diversity. If you're in any of those places, where fan base is mostly white, the you know the attitude, the. Of the state and the city is mostly conservative attitude all right? Throw that out there. You're not going to get someone cheap, but in New Orleans where there really is a pushed for what I consider to be out of the box. American behavior almost feels like a European city. It's just a super tone-deaf thing for guys had a full career a successful career. The I mean this. Is New Orleans? This is a a city where he led them he this is not a very traditional southern American city, and drew brees after Katrina lead them to a super bowl, and he had their support, but he lost it in an instant with this thing, and it's fascinating to see the fallout from this. It's fascinating. Die Down, demand flare up again because the president without drew brees. Asking jumped on his statement. Sister Crazy time so what? What will happen the if the season? You're going to see a Lotta guys, neely and Donald. Trump is sort of putting forth the same bluster that he did it two thousand sixteen, but were in a different moment. Talk about tone-deaf were in a different moment right now you're gonNA, see a lot of players it. You'RE GONNA. Wipe players kneeling with black players. You're see everybody kneeling, and they're gonNA understand. It has nothing to do with the flack and drew brees, even though he apologized is words. Words right now. He is going to be embarrassed. He's going to be embarrassed that he put that out there in conflated the two incorrectly, and that's going to sting him. You know if he cares about his team. It's missing. Here's about his political future. It probably won't. Let's take a break. When we come back. We'll get into all this with our buddy. Doron Morton and then later on the show Kris Kristofferson this from the cheap seats. Don't go anywhere..
T. Colin Campbell, PhD - T is for 'Trailblazer'
"My guest today is one of the great trailblazers in the plant based space in fact he coined the term based over thirty years ago. His name is t Colin Campbell. Of course you know him from his book that is sold over three million copies. The China's study. You know him from the documentary forks over knives and many of you from his repeat visits to our annual event plans stock for the past sixty five years. He's been a courageous true seeker. An unapologetic truth teller and today's episode of the plant. Strong podcast we talk about his definition of nutrition. What exactly is protein? Which is better animal protein or plant based protein? How much fat she. Ideally have in our diet and we talk about two recently released articles that Colin wrote which speak to his revolutionary idea that the best defense against covert nineteen is. What is on the end of your fork? In fact not only as a whole foods plant based diet the best cautionary measure that we can take. It's also the most responsible to protect to strain on the hospital system. Our global environment and the food supply chain which as you know has been severely compromised much to the shameful detriment of the workers and the animals. The links to these two articles are in the show notes at plant strong PODCAST DOT COM. But for now take the next hour and absorb this rich information from my friend and mentor. T Colin Campbell. T Colin Campbell. I want to welcome you to the plant strong podcast. Jeez I think the last time that I saw you. Colin was on the Holistic holiday at the crews Gosh I think it was February. Twenty seventh right before cove nineteen hit us. Hard young was wonder that we work on one of those scholarships. No it really was and in this cruiseliner that we were on was an Italian cruise liner. Right now yeah yeah. What a Well what what a time that was so I would love to start out by saying and I WANNA boomerang around in and get to this subject but you recently have written two different articles both about Kobe. Nineteen and how nutrition may be our best defense against over nineteen which is kind of a a novel idea. But if it's okay with you before we we can tackle. That would like to do is kind of revisit and start with some of the kind of nutrition basics a little bit. Because I think that's show many people don't know some of the stuff some of the really revolutionary stuff that you did in in the China Study Joe. I'd like to talk a little bit about that. If you're okay with that sure I before I do. He Colin Campbell. What does the tea stand for Thomas? Thomas and your son is Thomas. I got two sons Thomas. This you're on weird and my father's name was Thomas also okay and so tell me. So why is the tea? Why is it? Why is it not Colin t Campbell? Wise IT T- Column Roma fozzard immigrant. And he's from the Campbell clan as you may know from Scotland essentially and for long centuries of the name Colin was always the first name given to the oldest child in the Campbell clan. And so I was the first child to be born and my dad wanted me to be named collar. Or but he wasn't there I was born. He saw the doctor gave around to put the name. Down my dad. He said there should be three names. My Mom said okay. Put put my dad's name. I never was not exactly what he wanted so I stuck with her column. That kept the T. While I well I this yeah well. It's so unique now you you have been kind of one of these trail-blazing researchers now for over sixty five years And you've just you've done some amazing stuff to basically go against the status quo and buck the trends. What what do you think is giving you the courage to go after the truth with such kind of like was such intensity well. There's one very practical reason namely I had the academic tenure which is really become a very very strong feelings about that. I got tenure when I was only in my thirties fairly I so I had all these years Davin. Intern is guaranteed by Tenure I can freedom of guarantee but tenure and his precious is precious. Had I not had that kind of academic freedom or tenure wilt have not have ed tenure. I would be sitting here talking to you now and Horton. But the but the part of it that I get really exercised about is the fact that tenure in American universities has been declining intentionally so now for decades and it's almost a deployment now at almost doesn't exist for person unless they you know at the senior level full professor tenure that sort of stuff they look. There's only not in two thousand eleven. Twenty nine percent of the faculty were senior senior professors. Let's say full professors and academic as I was one of the nine percent that was eleven. I've done this right now. Can't be more than what it is two or three percent so what that what that means for. Country Rep is that is shutting people down. Who are expected to be telling the truth And my dad was very particular about that. You tell the truth the whole truth. Nothing but the truth so it was a combination of my dad's background his advice. And the tenure.
"horton" Discussed on The World and Everything In It
"Welcome to this special episode of the world and everything in it. We're calling it. Ask Dr. Horton we ask you for your questions about the corona virus pandemic and you delivered via email social media and our listener feedback line. You've sent in your questions which we much appreciate and now world's medical correspondent. Dr Charles Horton is here to answer them. Hi Dr Horton Hi. Mary will regular listeners. To the program will recognize your name and voice but they may not know that much about you. So tell us where you're from and what life is like for you right now. Sure I live outside Pittsburgh with my lovely wife. Phoebe who retired from being a general surgeon to become a fulltime to our three children. Maybe number four in fact is due on Mothers Day. How wonderful congratulations? Well with the baby on the way Maybe that's a good time for my first question. Are you worried about having corona baby as some people are calling them actually? I'm more worried about the GROWNUPS in the family. Simply because the virus seems a lot more likely to do us harm for some reason which we don't really understand yet children don't seem to get it nearly as badly. I've also heard people joking about corona babies being a coming baby boom. We might see a few months down the road after everyone's off work all these months reconnect. That's always a good thing. That's a good thing. Well let's turn now to questions from listeners and we'll start with ANA poelman. She gets to the heart of why we wanted to. Have you join us for this special program? Let's listen for someone like me..
"horton" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"Ton of great stuff see. Now what's What's going on in the world? Scott Horton welcome back to the show. Sir Thanks Dave. And don't forget Scott Horton Dot Org. I got five thousand interviews going back to two thousand and three for their if you like podcasts and stuff yeah if you're a since a lot of you guys have a lot of time at home You know End of of just great interviews That that Scott's done throughout the years on all types of different different topics But particularly you know American foreign policy over the last really over the last hundred years that you've covered in those five thousand Interviews on some really really great stuff in there Maybe even longer than the last hundred years some of them might go back a little bit further so we talked about a lot of stuff that's going on with the Um Corona virus and the The lockdowns and all this stuff. Since the last time we spoke I wanted to cover some of the stuff. That's been going on What maybe let's start with a a bright side it seems like the CDC has lowered their estimates of how many people they think are going to die Do Do to this corona virus in the United States of America They're crediting the social distancing and all of that stuff Do you see like a silver lining there. Maybe the actual death toll at the end won't be so bad Or like what are your thoughts. Well I sure hope so mean. I think reasonable people have assumed or or at least you know hoped with some good reason that the summer sun is GonNa help. Ultraviolet light is is really harsh on viruses and then also it's the humidity to the humidity. Bonn's to the virus in the air. You know condensation type of thing and then causes them to be much heavier and fall to the ground and so I live in Texas. So it's humid as hell and hot as hell here so I'm really hoping that the sun comes out and that really makes a difference. I don't know how much of a difference that's GonNa make where you are not Or how long it takes for the summer to kick in. It'll be summer here in another couple of weeks really. We don't do spring and Autumn in Texas so much So you know. That's a hopeful sign. I talked to my sister today and She's a nurse at Dell Children's Hospital. I guess I'm not supposed to say that. But Anyway so. They pulled her from the Children's Hospital. They have her working at the other hospitals in town dealing with adults now and she said that they are not overwhelmed as far as that goes but they are seeing a huge increase from this week over last week so it looks like and the numbers still pretty low. I think the number in in Austin and Travis County were Austin is is about five hundred something sick and then I think last I saw was like twenty dead or that it may have been lower than that where I live in Williamson County just north of Boston. It's the last I saw two had died and a total of seventy something sick so that could be much worse. I don't know exactly how to look at it. Part of that too is they. Don't have the tests so a lot of people who have in are just not being tested and of course people who are asymptomatic who knows those numbers at all. We won't know for a long time. I guess until they figure out how to get really cheap tests in the hands of everybody but you know as far as outbreaks go. It's no they have you know they meaning. The people of this society have kept a pretty good handle on by staying home. I think you know it's hard to judge the counterfactual but seems like things have been much much worse and part part of the deal. Dave is with flattening the curve. It means spreading it out to the right and so it means that the peak in the slow in the way down everything is going to take much longer at the same time though it's keeping it hopefully below the threshold of what the hospitals can continue to handle because the nightmare scenario. Is People just dying in the hallways in the parking lots because of you know people just being triage? Because they just don't have the beds and that kind of deal so you know it's a compromise either way we might have been over the peak by now and on our way down but then have a higher number of dead and much worse circumstances dine out in the parking lot. You know yourself somewhere. So that's what they're working with and you know it's funny because I see. I admit I've been kind of trolling twitter. I'm not tweeting but I'm looking at you. Know other people's tweets and stuff I keep they keep pulling me back in. I just keep falling off the wagon. Whichever metaphor you like thing Magen figures speech but You know people are really. I think they're saying well. You know the model said that this was going to happen and it ain't that bad yet so the whole thing is a hoax and this kind of thing. People are when people are afraid or angry. it it's the kind of believe anything depending so You know people say if if CBS News played a clip of the wrong emergency room. They've played a clip of an emergency room in Italy instead of a New York City and then people just extrapolate from that that the whole thing is just to put on and of course since every government agency is trying to take advantage then the crisis itself must be fake for them to try to take advantage but as rahm Emanuel and Condoleeza. Rice agree in. Never let a crisis go to waste. So that doesn't mean that they deliberately drowned New Orleans. It just means that they took the opportunity to put the army on the street and see some guns and set some precedents because they could you know same with this and same with the rest and and frankly we're dealing with as they call it a novel viruses brand new. There's no one is really an expert in this virus. Right is everybody's guessing and all the models of course are just garbage in garbage out. I mean what kind of numbers are they? Working with the best they can tell from the numbers from China and France and Italy and Spain and New York state and then they try to figure out exactly what that means. And so you know. Apparently they overestimated how bad it would be in order. You know either deliberately probably not deliberately but maybe just to scare the hell out of people in a way but then when the numbers are less than that people say okay see crisis averted. It's no big deal you know. Now forget flattening the curve. It's already flat enough. Let's go ahead and call the whole thing off now. Which I don't think is really a reasonable reaction but of course you know because they're not leaving it up to people there. You know the the governors and the mayors and and all of the bureaucrats are calling the shots for everyone else so. It's pretty easy to see that they're not really qualified to call in to make these decisions for everybody else and so it makes sense that people rebel against that right the same person who told you not to wear a mask because it will get you sick or Dave but also we need them for the healthcare workers because it will prevent them from getting sick in this kind of crap. Then you know. They've already blown other credibility right. All it takes is playing the wrong clip once overestimating a number of deaths in a week. One time and this kind of thing and all their credibility and warning you not to wear a mass now. Their credibility is shot. Nobody wants to listen to them about anything. But seems like if they call off all the all the distancing and all the stay at home lockdowns now and everybody went back to work now. We would have a lot worse peak. It's you know it. Would it would be much. Worse is hard to say for sure right but makes sense that it would be. Yeah well the crazy thing about it too is that you know like I agree with you in the fact that CNN shows the wrong footage is is not proof of anything other than that CNN sucks. And that certainly is that they're they're that that is a slam dunk of an argument. I like John neo-con terms that's a slam dunk But the there. It is like infuriating to me when you see like the CDC Changed finally after like everyone had already done. They were full of Shit but it was three days ago or something makeup. Yeah you know. Everyone should really wear a mask. And even if it's a freaking band Dan even if you just put a sock over your nose like you're probably better off than with nothing so yeah go ahead and wear a mask and you would think that this would come with the the sincerest apology. Oh my God we were so wrong it in the point. Where what? We specialize in is disease control at when the worst outbreak came. We gave you the absolute wrong advice. My God were sorry. Here's why we got it wrong. It's none of that. It's just a step. We changed it up. So it's like they almost say as if they were right all along and now they're telling you the polar opposite thing of what they told you before so I certainly am sympathetic to people who just go well. I can't trust anything any of these people. I agree I I you know I get that but I also I've been saying from the very beginning of this virus As as Tom Woods and you and a lot of other people in the Libertarian space to some of our own like knock it off to the people pretending that this doesn't exist because it's you're making us look bad and this is not a and more than that it's just not true like listen to there. Are these expert virologists. They are telling us what this thing is. Real people are getting sick and dying from it however I am getting more and more concerned as we get further. I into this concern for a lot of things but just the the one concern that I am starting to have is that. Is it possible that really even if we are flattening the curve? Even if we're building some you know like in New York. They're building some makeshift hospitals and the Javits Center Central Park. They're bringing some ships and it's like okay. We're getting a little bit more prepared but if the worst projections of this had come true you know then we. We still wouldn't be prepared. We still wouldn't have enough hospital beds. Is it possible because we really have no idea? There's so much we don't know that this thing is already widespread enough and there's a big enough percentage of people who are asymmetric. Who are walking around with this virus that whenever they have to let up on these controls the things just going to spread around rapidly really quickly again. I mean I know people are optimistic about the summer. But we're going to get into the fall and this thing probably we'll be back with US. It could even mutate. They're all these possibilities out there. That were still going to be dealing with the same problems and what what we have done is caused enormous pain to a lot of people. So I'm just GonNa just mention real quickly. The one St that I believe me and you were talking about on the phone. I apologize if this was on the last podcast. I mean it's got talk on the phone a lot. And then we podcast a lot and so it. All kind of bleeds together in my mind and I never remember which one was being recorded but the thing that stood out to a lot of people was in Iceland so in Iceland they've done most testing as a percentage of their population. They've got something like five percent of the population has been tested. A comparing that to America. I mean I think we're at like point three percent or something nowhere near What they've done And what they're testing found again. This is limited testing. And I'm not sure that this is a random you know Sample I in fact. It probably isn't but they found that fifty percent of the people who tested positive for Kovic nineteen. Were as symptomatic. Now if that's the case now when you hear that news almost like two reactions right away like number one. You're like okay. Well if I get it. There's a fifty fifty shot that I you know I don't get sick from it. So that's kind of Nice but the bad part about that is that we know you can still spread this when you're symptomatic and those are the numbers I just don't understand how any shelter in place or any type of a again. I'm not an expert in this stuff but it just doesn't make sense to me that any type of of crackdown is actually going to stop the spread of this ultimately and it is causing very very real catastrophic harm to millions and millions of people so this is like a big concern of mine right now. Yeah well and again yeah. There's nobody's expert in. So what's the tradeoff? Nobody knows we know that suicide rates are probably going up. We know that our guests..
"horton" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"We need a rollback of state. We spy on all of our own citizens are flooded with non violent drug offenders. America's next enemy is look at who were funding right now. Every single one of these problems are government being way to bay. What's up what's up. What's up everybody? Welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem back with me is of course the Great Scott Horton. Who is the the? He is the guest that I've had on the most on the show and I always love getting his insights and one of the the benefits of this whole crazy. Pandemic that we're living through. Is that now when I talked to? Scott we can talk about a lot of other stuff besides a foreign policy which we always seem to talk about the most. Because that's kind of Scott's area of specialized in but Scott's great on everything and I really enjoy his very true his insights on all things I've I've benefited a lot. From from means Scott's friendship and Of course If you don't know he's the author of a fool's errand time to end the war Afghanistan which is a great book Just incredible a must read if you want to understand what's going on in Afghanistan and just the broader foreign policy of the United States of America. And it's still very very timely and relevant as there seemed to be some steps toward finally ending that war but will say you never know And of course. Also put out the Great Ron Paul which is His his many interviews with Dr Paul over the years I I recommend both of those.

Food, Dubious Food
"In twenty eleven in Alabama law firm sued fast food chain Taco Bell for dishonest business practices claiming that Taco Bell's seasoned filling couldn't be called beef under USDA standards because they had it tested and it was only thirty five percent beef. The rest was oats and other fillers Taco bell pulled out all the stops to refute the allegation at a cost of more than three million dollars including parody of Saturday morning superhero cartoon show that they had already for reasons super delicious ingredients force fighting. Baron VAUGHN bland. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts. Researching conspiracy theories and urban legends. Always gets a little wild like. Did you know that people are die hard? Tim Hortons fans because the Canadian version of Dunkin donuts spikes their coffee with highly addictive nicotine. Of course they don't but that doesn't stop people from believing. It will be skipping over. Stories like the fingertip and Wendy's Chili. That was a failed extortion attempt or the mouse in the mountain dew which PepsiCo defended themselves against by proving that the mouse would have dissolved. Let's start with the biggest name and fast food. The Mac Daddy if you will. Mcdonald's easily holds the records for the most urban legends and conspiracy yarns spun around a restaurant. The topic has its own wikipedia. Page and these. Well predate the unduplicated experiment. That was Morgan. Spurlock super size me listeners. Of a certain demographic may remember the Jimbo. You deserve a break today reaching them about the same time as the rumor that McDonald's stretched their hamburger meat out with Nice. Cheap ground up worms. If you've been online for more than a few minutes. In the past decade he will have seen a picture of a factory machine extracting fat tube of Pink Mush or pink slime as the caption frames. It say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It's all fast food. Chicken is made from things like chicken. Nuggets patties also. The process frozen chicken in the stores is made from it. Basically the entire chicken is smashed and pressed recieve bones is guts. All it comes out looking like this and there's more because it's crawling with bacteria it'll be washed ammonia soaked in it actually then because it tastes gross. It'll be re flavored artificially then because it's weirdly pink it'll be died with artificial color but hey at least it tastes good right. There are little bits they are that are nearly true mechanically separated meat is a staple ingredient in ready made frozen and fast foods but it's made from meat cuts not whole carcasses while beef producers commonly treat meat products with small amounts of ammonium side as an anti microbial agent and assessing in a high volume facility meat and poultry processors. Don't soak the meat in ammonia. They treat it with the gas apart from the included items being wrong. There are a lot of things that are missing. Like the fact that McDonald's stopped using mechanically separated chicken in two thousand and three mechanically separated. Beef was banned in two thousand four due to concerns about Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy Aka mad cow disease and the pink. Slime in the picture is probably what one beef industry magazine writer called. Ammonium treated lean beef trimmings not even chicken at all another glaring omission in the claim. There is nothing in the picture to identify that as a McDonald's facility. Mcdonald's went on the defensive showing how nuggets were actually made and that the mushed up chicken while not especially pleasing to the eye at no point looks like pink. Slime washed down those nuggets with a milkshake. Well there's no milk in that milkshake. There's no dairy of any kind. That's why the menu says shakes and not milkshakes. At least that's the rumor. What are they used instead to make it so creamy pureed cow eyeballs or maybe a little microscopic styrofoam balls for filler or lard or potatoes or seaweed or ground up feathers there are strict definitions food labelling and while. Mcdonald's shakes can't be labeled milkshakes in some areas because they don't contain straight up milk they do contain milk via the soft serve ice cream that's used to make them and they don't contain any of the other things save one. Their ice cream is made from milk. Sugar cream of Corn Syrup and various common preservatives and thinners McDonald's self-serve does contain one item from the Urban Legend List Seaweed specifically encourage Heenan. A safe natural common ingredient bonus. Fact if your food or drink is pink or red in color. Check The label for coaching. Neil a type of beetle whose ground up bodies have been used as a food color for centuries. I'm not suggesting to avoid it unless you're trying to keep kosher. I just think it's interesting. It's probably only listed as natural color. Anyway say you bought more food than you're able to eat in one sitting and you left the rest on the counter for a few weeks. Hey we all get busy. Thanks to all the artificial ingredients in manmade chemicals in boldface defiance of the natural order of things that McDonald's food won't rot. Lots of people have made videos showing the food remaining virtually unchanged after days and even weeks. This is a little bit true but mostly false in case any specify that and not for the reasons you think according to Dr Keith Warner Program Director at the University of Gulf's Department of Food Science and Quality Assurance essentially the microbes. That cause rotting are a lot like ourselves in that they need water nutrients warmth and timed grow. If we take one or more of those elements away then. Microbes cannot grow and spoil food in the example of the McDonald's hamburger. The patty loses water in the form of steam during cooking the BUN is made out of bread and toasting it reduces the amount of moisture this means that after preparation hamburger is fairly dry. When left out open in a room? There's further water loss as the humidity within most buildings is around forty percent so in the absence of moisture or high humidity. The Burger simply dries out rather than rots so no moisture no rot. It's the inverse of the reason. Why the bathroom is the only room in your house where you're locked in an eternal struggle with microbes like mold and mildew speaking of moisture. Who could use a tasty beverage right about now? How about a new COQ? Don't know what I'm talking about. That means one of two things. You're under the age of thirty or the most devious and ingenious marketing effort of all time succeeded or failed either way. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Set would want you to know. That coke created new coq to cover the switch from sugar to corn Syrup to mask the removal of the last remaining coca derivatives or because people would hate it and demand more of what had been renamed co Classic. Take your pick. Pepsi had an effective ad campaign with the Pepsi. Challenge a blind taste test where lifelong coke fans found out they actually preferred the taste of Pepsi. Coke replicated the challenge in private and found the same thing. So in nineteen eighty-five they reformulated coke to be sweeter and put it out as new coq hip trendy with it and now including TV spots with the supposedly CGI. Max Headroom. You can hear more about in episode ninety six. Do not adjust your set. People hated new COQ. The heated the very idea of coping changed. There were letter writing campaigns thousands of calls a day and people. Hoarding original coke. Were boycotting the brand altogether independent bottlers even sued Coca Cola for lost revenue. It was all over the news all the late night talk shows. You couldn't buy that much publicity for. Could you? People began to speculate that. Coca-cola had launched new coq knowing that people would hate it that it would make people want to buy original coke and that everyone would be talking about it. They created it to fail. This isn't as far fetched a notion as you might think a decade or so later when Pepsi Launched Crystal Pepsi. Can you hear that Van Hagar Song Coke Launch? Crystal Tab? Tab was the first Diet Soda and even though Crystal Pepsi wasn't Diet People inflated the two and Crystal Pepsi went out faster than Jenkins and plastic choker necklaces as for the new coq debacle being a deliberate marketing ploy then company president. Donald Cove said some. Cynics will say that we planned the whole thing. The truth is we're not that dumb and we're not that Smart

Musicians Are Canceling & Postponing Asian Tour Dates Due to Coronavirus Concerns
"The Corona Virus Ariss already has claimed more than one thousand lives in mainland China since it was first detected in the city of Wuhan. The virus has spread to two dozen other countries injuries and now some bands and musicians are postponing or altogether canceling tour dates in Asia. I spoke with billboards. Pop correspondent Tamar Herman About Corona virus concerns and she started by telling me which acts have been affected by the Healthcare Bryant. Now we're seeing a lot of artists canceling events in Asia Who you know? Spend the board. Whether they're China focused axe Japanese. Ask reenact the pixies just cancelled something. You know the Boston Orchestra cancelled a a lot of K pop and Hong Kong based in Mando Pop. Artists are canceling their tours within Asia. But beyond that we're starting to see some Asian acts cancel their tours beyond Asia. So so a few K pop groups recently cancelled European legs of their tour in addition to either postponing or cancelling dates of shows in Asia. So we're kind of seeing a lot of people really Trying to anticipate the worst because we really don't know so much about corona virus right now so I think a lot of people are trying to take a preventative action to make sure that they both artists and as humans. They're not unwittingly the cause of of a mass outbreak. A concert or something so are they concerned that that by staging an event with a lot of people in one place it could accelerate the spread of the virus. Are they worrying about their own personal health. Ulf I guess they could also be worried about whether or not people are going to show up and buy tickets. What are the factors that are going into these decisions? So it's pretty much all of the above you know people will are not really sure how the virus spreads right now. We really don't have a whole lot of information. We just know that it's spreading pretty rapidly so I think there is kind of the concern of artists travelling internationally or just even interacting with more people than usual especially when some parts of China and other other countries are already putting people under quarantine. So kind of just preventative you know. We don't want to engage with the virus. We don't want our fans to engage the virus UK Pop ax gave out. You know masks. They made sure there was hand. Sanitizer in Apple's so and I'm pretty sure that was right as we started hearing about the lack back of masks. And now we're hearing more and more either cancellations or putting off the dates end kind of trying to find some middle ground but a few events are still being held. The With the aid of digital media livestream is and whatnot. Ray Now things are pretty unclear. Nobody really knows what's going on so it just Kinda seems like people are being preventative for the sake of being preventative. A lot of the concern right now is in Asia but the virus seems to be spreading. Globally are there acts who are now canceling canceling outside of Asia. Maybe in Europe maybe in North America at what point are people reconsidering their entire tours so KEPA play bent seventeen just cancelled the rest of their. Ot World tour. They were supposed to go to Europe and a few other countries in Asia after having already toured throughout Asia in the US and now they just kind of put a halt halt to it and they just said we're not continuing this tour. We don't really know what's going on in Corona viruses. Just too much so we are seeing that another I think another pop group Ab six. It's also canceled their upcoming European tour. Were haven't really heard so many cancellations in the US yet but we also haven't had many cases of corona virus in the US yet. So it could be that there are more in Europe. So we're hearing more beret now. Predominantly the cancellations are Asia based but we're increasingly hearing about outside out of Asia as well we're talking with Tamar Herman at billboard about concerts being canceled over corona virus ears when an organization like the Boston symphony any orchestra goes on a tour to Asia. They are in some ways kind of cultural ambassadors. They're bringing their music to an audience. That might not have heard it before. But when pop bands are touring. It's basically how they make a living because streaming has really impacted the amount that artist can make off of record sales. So how important. Horton is touring and the merchandise related terrain to most bands. And it's GONNA be a financial problem for a lot of bands. Were having to cancel. Yeah it's wearing makes a lot of money so so you know the the postponements kind of makes sense for the few acts that have postponed their tours in there could probably try to re new pick a new date. That's GonNa be a way that we're going to the artist. Try Not to lose out on the money but artists that have canceled their whole tours like beyond even the pop ax. We see also not only Boston Symphony Orchestra. The National National Symphony Orchestra have canceled their Tornado. Like we're seeing total shutouts happening and so it's not only going to impact them financially because now oh you know they've already signed contracts with their performers. They're not making any money soon that the orchestra still has to pay their staff. There's going to be a huge lost their size soon. Boom we're GONNA see some bands in some companies. TRY TO RECOVER THEIR LOSS by setting up last minute events or concerts in the near future closer to home. Maybe but concerts ticket. Sales are GONNA have to be refunded. That's going to be huge loss for companies as I mentioned that group seventeen. They closed out the whole tour and they had had huge arenas that they were performing and so now they have old loss of ticket and revenue and just the general contractor fees that you put into when you're putting on a a show you're paying promoters you. These people still have to be paid so I think we're GONNA see pretty sizable losses to some degree. Depending on how these companies recover recover their losses. And it's time will tell how big these losses are but it's pretty sizeable just in the moment to see you know saying. Oh we're we're shutting out three five ten dates that we've already sold tickets for that many has to be refunded. The money has to be found somehow in other business. You know. We're probably GONNA you see a big dip in a lot of music companies if this keeps on happening so the death toll from the corona virus has surpassed one thousand people in mainland China which has passed what SARS killed in two thousand and three. So how. How are the cancellations compared to what happened around? SARS seventeen years ago right now AL I. It's really hard to compare this just starting. We don't know how long this is going to last. And hopefully things can be figured out more quickly than that Tamar. Herman is a pop correspondent for Billboard Tamar. Thanks so much for coming on the
Flight Training, Flying & Aviation Career Questions Motivation Monday
"Let's get right into so Estrin rating. How do you keep everything straight in your head so instrument flying is is pretty interesting because there are so many precise technical details about where you are and where you're flying that you need to be obviously on top of those those things because we're flying to greater precision in instrument flying so really it's important to take notes on clearances dances you get and things that you need to remember in support to even take notes on say your instrument approach play highlight them things like that In four five for example there is a way to highlight your approach plates and kind of Find the areas that are the most awesome important and of course you can brief them there as well you can put those on top Geo referenced on top of the map and then in terms of you which is the most important part you just staying ahead of things and being on top of things that just comes with practice so those things that you could forget and could throw you off like stuff. That's on the charts charts and clearances. You get those are things to write down Of course there's a note pad area in four fight or just having a having a note pad yourself itself that you can write with is very important so Just takes practice. You really gotta get into that mode of being on top of things where you're at knowing what the next step is in your flight instrument and the step after that always keeping ahead on instrument is really really important Horton. So that's just a really short answer for that one in the hope that helps so this one is Kinda battlefield a little bit different Switching gears a little bit ownership expenses and upgrades and what to prioritize. And My short answer on this would be that you need to make sure that you are prioritizing those things that matter the most for safe operation of flying so if you are going to be going into instrument training for example and you're aircraft has minimum mum instrument equipment. Let's just assume that it's already iof are capable. Maybe it's time to get. GPS In prioritize that or prioritize is getting a G. Five zero replacing that vacuum system. Something that really helps you for that type of flying that you're doing and that's really my point is the type the flying that you're doing the most that is what you're going to want to prioritize. I think a lot of the times us as pilots. We we get. We get bogged down in the cosmetic things with airplanes so I would definitely prioritize the operational components that will make you're flying more precise better safer and you know going back to the last question kind of help for you in those instrument conditions say a than others at another one. I think of that Like from my own aircraft or the aircraft that I use is it's kind of an underpowered older engine and there's the option of replacing the engine which is very very expensive or I could do a couple of other other little tweaks like add Advantages to it or a stole cuff. That will allow me to do. More operations ends at shorter strips and better climb outs and things like that without upgrading. The engine we're talking about a five thousand dollar upgrade their versus versus a a forty to fifty thousand dollar upgrade on the engine. So just prioritizing some of those things and make sure you're just being prudent you didn't with the best thing for you at the current time that will have the best bang for your buck in your opinion was the most difficult subject for for p. p. l.. I've been thinking about this a lot and I've been thinking about it a little bit more. With what just happened in the Kobe Brian incident or accident accident. Actually that just happened and I think the most difficult subject for for p. p. l. and really any license is just that safety mindset that aeronautical article decision making that is so important for pilots. We have a bunch of different things that we have to worry about as pilots. We need to learn how to fly plan. We need to know the weather well. We need to know aerodynamics. We need to have the skills to fly the airplanes in in different maneuvers no takeoffs and landings and Of course slot of the math that goes on behind the scenes that we need to be aware of but I think it all comes down to decision making and Making Safe Decisions Asians in fighting those external pressures on things that would try to get us in bad situations and I think that's one of the most difficult things to teach as well you you know I I think part of it comes from upbringing and and just character that people have and how that plays into how they operate in an airplane but I think flying airplanes gives us the opportunity to look deeper within our cells and find out if there are things that we need to change in our flight operations operations. 'cause man the safety thing it always just comes back to safety and In those decisions that we make or the decisions that we don't make if that makes sense so I think that's the most difficult thing to grasp everything else is predicated on on that core discipline of being being a safe pilot and I have a golden rule. I say it a lot. I'll just repeat it for those of you. That haven't heard it before but my golden rule with flying is that I am going to operate the aircraft in in a safe manner so that I can return home to my family every single time so if I go on that golden rule and I'm sitting there struggling with the decision that I know that I'm going take the safest decision to make that possible and make that a reality. So that is my two cents on a On the most difficult subject for private pilots and really any pilot. Hello Chris I'll start flying school soon and I will fly twice a week due to fulltime job and they need taking taking one week vacation gets cut off but I think I kind of know the gist of the question. So fine twice. A week is a great frequency to fly three times times. A week is good as well. Sometimes that's a little bit too aggressive for people's budget so not always possible and it looks like you're also ah thinking about taking a vacation here or there or Or just one week vacation to hammered out. I think that's a pretty good strategy. I like like the strategy of having the steady pace that you go along in your training regardless of what rating you're working on but I also like the idea of intensive zip training. I don't necessarily think that intensive training can work front to back for everyone because I think that That we as humans kamins most humans get burned out and specially our brains need to catch up in the process and and just rest. I think rest is really important when it comes to training training so gotta be careful with that but yeah I actually think that having the steady plan of two to three times a week to train but also those those times where you take a week and you really go after it hard can really accelerate your training in the long run. It actually saves you money to do it that way but I think we need to be careful that we don't try to go into an accelerated rated program that from front to back you know beginning to end this. Just go go go twenty four hours a day. I think people typically just get too burned out by schedule Doc. So sounds like you have a plan that you're building for your training there and and I think you're definitely on track so good job. That's definitely a way that I would recommend recommended. Go through your training and I know that that answers a lot of questions for other people too good situations for via far on top. You know it kind of depends via far on top is is it. It's a little bit risky in the sense. That if you're via fire only pilot and you're planning on flying over some sort of solid alad layer of clouds. You can get into a trap in certain situations so I think good scenarios are where you're essentially en route and there are clouds that you need to get over but you know that your departure or your your departure airport in your destination airport or both reporting that they're fully open and you're not pushing the margins there. I think that's a good thing to do. But you know I had a flight a year ago. A friend in California and I went flying. We were going to do Across country and we had this situation where we did get to a point where we could do if our on top stop and we can fly over that area and go all the way to our destination but we also weren't very sure that the destination whether it was going to hold up or improve and so we wanted to. We basically decided not to go. We are we are en route. The weather wasn't changing. It wasn't changing to the forecast and weather like Like we had looked at and so we decided to divert turn around go back and not fire that layer. There is a bit of risk involved when doing that. Obviously if you had any sort of emergency situation you wouldn't be able to see where you're descending into so there's a little bit of that stuff to think about with with Single engine Via far over clouds it would really be no different than single engine. I F are in the clouds in that sense other than you're not Really relying on instruments the entire time you can see the horizon out there so that's kind of my initial thoughts just just off the top of my head. Just you know thinking about the risks involved of doing that But there are times when you are in route that flying over a you know a bit of cloud a a bit of an overcast layer or whatever it is is not such a bad idea so really just depends but weighing the risks is very important.
Jake Goldenfein on Google Scholar
"Our guest today is Jack Golden Fine. He's a post doctoral fellow slow at the digital life initiative and he's originally from Melbourne Australia. He's research looks law in Computational Society including including the impact of platforms on user behavior. He's most recent piece of research. Looks at Google scholar. A relatively new free web search engine that indexes scholarly work in which has quickly become central to academic life just like other Google services have in other disciplines. I sat down with him just before the holidays and I began by asking him to explain what Google scholar is for the non scholars among us. And why it's become so important Horton. In recent years Google Scola emerged in two thousand and full when it was first launched it was just an academic search. Such engines are just like Google that ordinary such engine accepted return. Scholarly results how it defines something as scholarly has always been a little a bit vague. And maybe we'll talk more about why the Vagary of that is a bit problematic but the idea was it would return results that were relevant for scholars. Looking King Faculty make work since then. It's had a few more features added that perhaps beyond set actually more important or have had a bigger effect on the academic field in two thousand and six you able to stop saying citation counts associated with particular scholarly documents and then three years later. Two two thousand eleven google Google scholar launched sort of citation platform and what they did was give each racer. A profile like scholar profile filed outlined oleo publications and the citation counts of those publications calculations of academic quality or the quality of eraser. Sure premised on the amount of citations their publications getting over particular number of us. Silly amount the number of times other researchers will quote from your research search in their own research. Exactly it's the number of times that An article a document that you ride is referred to by other researches. It's pretty new right. You said it it started in two thousand and four so less than I mean a little over ten years. How how big is it now in the field? It do every researchers look at it when they're working on a new topic or so I would say. Almost every researcher would be familiar with it when Dougal scholars such sort of emerged on the sane librarians. This who Training young racers will always telling them be very wary of this because we sort of don't understand how it works as well as we understand. How other academic search search engines wet? It's also interesting. Because most academic search engines are quite disciplinary specific and they all they return results to a particular the corpus or repertoire of journals whereas Google scholar is disciplined agnostic a returns results across disciplines irritations results from academic journals but also other kinds of publications and whereas in traditional academic search engines. You have quite a lot of control over. What what you're searching for in Google scholar you have relatively limited control you can you can constrain the dates? But that's kind of more or less it. So it's always occupied had a bit of a funny position in research toolkit but it's increasingly a used because we're getting a lot more sort of disciplinary environments where people are interested in finding out information outside of their discipline and so google scholar becomes sort of fest port of coal in that kind of instance. But the thing that we're finding is maybe the big use of Google scholar is it's it's citation counting function it's bibliometric function on because what Google Scuola represents his really the easiest way to say. How many citations a particular research has received how come like what? Where did you get those metrics before? and and why were they less easy to find. People who are metrics have been around for a long time in the fifties those information scientists named using Garfield field. Who developed this process of citation analysis? Way You could effectively automate the organization. That is the indexing of scholarly work Iraq by its references so libraries with struggling with how to organize exploding amount of scientific and scholarly literature. And they will. Also you're thinking about how to to use computers to do that. The problem with during that is the sort of need to figure out a way to define the subject matter of of a publication in a way that a computer can understand and Eugene Garfield came up with a really clever way of doing that which is to look at references. Organiz it by the references rather than the actual actual content. This idea was really successful. It was really useful research tool but it also became clear quite early on that counting. Citations could give you a really Sort of rough guide to the quality of work because it gave you a measure of its reception in the field. It didn't tell you how people were trading but a told you people were rating in had some some sort of visibility. So through the sixties and seventies this eventually turned into a commercial product and in the nineties that was purchased by Thomson Reuters Webb of science over the last couple of decades has been probably the primary tool to get metric information but it's number one. The product was General Impact Factor in journal impact factor measured the number of citations to articles in particular journal. Over set a number of years. This citation analysis was used primarily for evaluating the quality of channels rather than the quality of individual researches now individual researchers started added to organize their own sort of scholarly prestige around the prestigious journal. Yeah so if you publish a nature medicine for example for a doctor it's not the same mm-hmm as in a local journal. That might be great but less has left citations nationally. Exactly so what we see during the seventies eighties nineties his citation starting to do lots of interesting things. We started to see journals effectively set their price according to the number of citations that were getting individual scholars. Who now were in this more competitive scully? Well because you know in the second half of the twentieth century the number of scholars in Christ raced dramatically along with massive increases in funding to. There's a lot more research is. There's a lot more research. Things are getting more competitive. The Prestige of your journal Becomes go away to sort of define your position in a market
Chicken War Spurs Popeyes Sales
"Let's start with the restaurant. Industry and in particular restaurant brands international which is the decidedly unsexy name of the parent company of Burger King. Popeye's and Tim Hortons Fortensky fourth quarter profits and revenue for restaurant brands slightly higher than expected and all of the credit one hundred percent of the credit. Go to Popeye's yeah. There's no question because when we talk about same store sales and I think it was either on this show on Motley fool money last week we're talking about AAA which put up same store sales growth of thirteen percent and I said what most restaurants would kill for that. Can I interest you in same. Aim store sales growth of thirty eight percent. Yeah thirty eight percent that looks comical like when you look at the chart as you and I both did this morning owning. It looks ridiculous but now we know what that spicy chicken sandwiches worth well and if if you know if you listen to Ron and roses. Scathing adding scathing review it was not a good review. You wonder how many people are going to actually give that sandwich. Try Not I know I'm not I haven't tried it yet and I don't know that I actually will part of that is just because I'm probably too lazy in an overly like eating a lot of fast food but I do feel like this For for restaurant brains. This really does feel like they're McDonald's breakfast moment. I mean it was a little bit less I think it was a little bit less expected. I mean they they certainly planned this sandwich obviously I don't know that they even really expected the results that they're getting but you you take what you can get in this line of work because it's not always easy to come across and I think the big question for Restaurant Brands is candy. Sustain it because I mean yes they are diversified and then. They have have Popeye's in Tim. Hortons in Burger King. But this really is. I mean the the the growth is coming from this chicken sandwich and so the question is is is that sustainable and and we don't know that I mean this it's kind of like that greater investing lesson and no pun intended. But you're not looking to put all of your eggs in one basket in this case. You don't WanNa put all of your chicken sandwiches in one basket in. I think when you look at restaurant brands I mean. This really is a Burger King. Business First and foremost I mean Burger. King is responsible for close to seventy percents companies. Total revenue in Popeye's is actually the smallest revenue generator of the three but that said The laggard really his. Is Tim. Hortons and that to me is the bigger question because I. I don't have any doubt that they can continue to perform well with Popeye's even if the chicken sandwich doesn't bring this explosive growth going forward and it probably won't but it it'll probably do pretty well. It's been received well because a lot of people think it's really good The question for MEES. What are they going to do with Tim? Hortons because Tim Hortons is really. This is kind of like the Pizza Hut. This is like the conversation we had about yum brands where wear it was yet another quarter of KFC and Taco bell are doing just fine. Thank you very much and Pizza Hut. Just I'm almost speechless because I'm genuinely surprised that when Pizza Hut was handed the opportunity that they were of Papa. John's and all of the controversy around John Schnatter in the NFL deal and the NFL deal. They still can't make that concept concept work no. I think you probably could make the argument this point. Now that you know Tim Horton's could prep for a spin off in pizza. Hut could prep for a spin off. You put those two together you know what their ticker would be Chris L. A. G. Because those two together will lag the market for quarters in years to come in. I don't know why that is on the pizza. Hut Pizzas one of those things. I mean domino's recognized a while back. Hey listen we're not. We're not selling a lot of stuff because apparently our food in that great. So let's make good food in and for whatever reason Tim Hortons doesn't quite resonating as well and maybe it is. Maybe it is a geography thing. It's it's certainly not a brand that I think has much opportunity opportunity south of the border. Right I mean when when you bring that thing into the United States just don't think it's GonNa do What it could possibly do in Canada but the calms of minus four point point three percent? Now we'll say management attributed some of that to their rewards program. They're essentially investing a lot in this rewards program to stoke traffic bring people back in in and I appreciate that that makes sense. We see a lot of these restaurants. Do it and and starbucks I think is one of the companies out there who really wrote wrote the book on how to do it. Well a Tim Hortons. Maybe these are. Just some of the lumps that come with investing in that a but I it's it's taking a little a bit of a hit in the short run for. Hopefully it'll more long term sustainability that remains to be seen whether it's really gonNA work out. I'm not that optimistic. Whereas I feel like with Burger working at Popeye's there is a more universal geographical reach where people people are going to probably flocked to those brands a little bit more consistently So for me. Burger King and Popeye's strength their. Tim Hortons a lot of questions. They're going to continue to make investments the rewards program but I mean this is a company that has some big aspirations with somewhere in the neighborhood. Twenty th at twenty seven thousand total restaurants. Today they're aim is is for forty thousand restaurants in the next eight to ten years in so you got to believe that most of that is going to come on the Burger King Popeye's side and and and it doesn't We very well may see them make another acquisition. Bring another brand under their umbrella so to speak that remains to be seen but yeah I mean for all of the success. That Popeye's has had burger king. I get it Tim Hortons is the real big question mark and I don't know what they do to fix that to to go go back to something you said earlier regarding Ken. Popeye sustain this. No no anyone. Who's looking at this thinking boy? Can they do this every quarter no there. You'd you'd like to see maybe not thirty percent growth but you'd like to see given the comstock. They had a year ago. Then yeah you'd like to see some double double digit growth. But when we get to twelve months from now honestly if they can do. Single low single digit growth off of thirty eight percent. COP bumped than fantastic. I think the other restaurant that has to be looking very closely at this. Is McDonald's and Chris Kempinski. Who's been CEO for? Maybe almost three months. Now it's going to be interesting to see where they go with their chicken chicken sandwich and what they're able to do with well we. We have gotten some boots on the ground research on that already and apparently they've got some work to do on that on that front. I mean that's a really competitive space. I mean who would have figured we'd be sitting here just shining such a light on the chicken sandwich. I mean this really has become front and Center for the Quick Quick Service Restaurant Industry. Hasn't I mean but you know the the business opportunity for McDonald's and everyone else who's not chick-fil-a is the chick-fil-a is closed on Sundays Sundays. Yeah Yeah you can get just you know. You don't need to get all of their business. You just need to get some of their biggest need some of it and and and again I think. Go to your point about the chicken sandwich with Popeye's no it's not sustainable but it seems to be a good product wrong grosses reviews. Be Damned. I I do think that it would be really neat to see them. Come up with something like that. For the Burger. King side of the business that would be extremely meaningful because again a- as great of a success as the chicken sandwich with Popeye's has been it's still the smallest part of the business in that has to be taken into consideration ration-. This is a burger king story first and foremost so I bet you management is in a room somewhere trying to figure out. How do we capture the lightning in a bottle? Four Burger King and maybe they thought the impossible opera had that Had that potential doesn't seem like it's Gonna I mean and I don't know what it is but it does seem like no matter what it's going to revolve around chicken in some way shape or form.

Keith Carter And The Poetry Of Photography
"Though photography involves a technical practice practice it can still illicit moments of lyricism and poetry. The power of such work comes from its ability to elicit emotion from a viewer something that is only possible when the photographer considers more than just pixel counts and sharpness. Keith Carter has built a career on having an exacting photographic practice both as a commercial photographer and as a fine artist it is body of work is elevated by his embracing the idea that imperfections flaws and moments of failure are as much a part of the photographic process as good equipment and a well exposed piece of film. He understands that one of his greatest strengths as a photographer is his willingness to mind his own life. World and experiences enters as familiar and mundane. Isn't it may appear to create something universal. Yes but I agree with you. I get wildly stimulated in a new place it's something I've never seen etc etc etc.. That makes you us. synapses fire fire in a different way. And you work in a different way on the other hand. If you're in a place that is relatively familiar. There's a different percents of communists and on a good day. You can still find that same excitement. You just have to look sometimes a little. Harder won't talk to Keith. About the literary influences of his work as well as the role his wife played in his evolution as a photographic graphic artist. This is a body enacts and welcome back to the candidate for him Bozo appreciate you making time for me. I've been wanting to talk to you for a long time. I've long admired your work Anderson civility and anytime. I've had a chance to hear. Can you speak like he did at art center a couple of years ago or or something that I catch on on on the computer. I just really really have always appreciated sincerity Freddie and just the genuineness that you bring to your love of photography that I see exhibited in your work. Well thank you I appreciate it. I wanted to start because so many times when photographers ask other photographers about their influences. It usually is related to other other photographers. They know that the writer Horton foote. Made an impression on you early on. And he's a great American screenwriter and playwright and it seems that it came aim at a sort of a pivotal time when you're sort of defining yourself in terms of who you were photographer and I was wondering whether you could speak to that well. You're you're entirely correct. I was muddling around with several ways to progress and I went to a lesser. Where Horton was on a panel discussion and it was a snooze? Roma handles discussion a number of academics. You Know Elbow Patches etc and his lovely a silver headed man but the molest Lewis Voice and they were deconstructing. All of Horton's plays at this point and I was sitting in the audience and when it became his turn to talk he says something that just rocked my world and still does to some extent he said well you know when I was a boy growing up in Warton that's a small coastal town in Texas agricultural town. He said I told my teacher. I wanted to be an actor and my teacher said Will Horton. That'll be difficult in a town like this. But you're going to need to know several things if you want to get in the arts and he said you're going to no need it's no the history of your your place where you come from and you're going to need to travel go away you probably get away and maybe come back etc etc and you're going to need to know the most important thing in that you're going to need always belong to replace. I'm paraphrasing here. But if you know his plays he writes about universal things that happen everywhere but he writes about him essentially in a small town where there are great truths being told him small ways. I just sat straight up in my chair taught. Oh yeah you know everybody makes fun of my place for good reason. But that's what I'm GONNA do. It is. I'm probably in my twenties point from an analysis. I'm going to belong to this place in I'm going to play. They like I know how silly this sounds. I'm GONNA play like ours. Dropped from another planet into this culture into this landscape into these people with this speech into these myriad animals into this peculiar surreal landscape. And I'm GonNa Photograph everything everything everything that's how it started. That's not where I ended up today but that was how it began along. I think it's such an important lesson because I see so many young photographers who often dismissed the things that they are very familiar with. They see the things is that they've known most of their lives the experience they've had and they see it as boring not particularly interesting and they look elsewhere in terms of finding subject matter for whatever creative work. They're doing particularly with photography. But it's when I've often look at bodies of work by by by students though so me the work that they feel is important and I go what are you doing. That's just you know that you're just doing for the sake of doing and more often than not it's the very sort of personal intimate. I'm at work. That becomes the more interesting and the most dynamic and the most infused with energy and passion than anything that they were doing where they were it primarily to demonstrate what they're capable of technically and. I think it was a wonderful gift or provided you by igniting igniting that awareness so early on in your journey as a photographer I agree The other thing is he was a kind man. And and sometimes they're in short supply society and a light a light the conversations we have over over the years after Talker in when it was a younger photographer Acoust- you WanNa make a living too so I was really interested in narcissistic things of my Tom. I want to make my own pictures but I think is important for younger photographers to live near a larger market. Even though we damn good transportation so and so forth and find some sort of shame or associate or a passion to follow and in my case I kept my commercial work separate. I do the best job I could but my my personal was a whole different entity and I was always much more interested in personal work because I thought it was awesome AAs riding my little bitty rallies autobiography in some ways but as writing pictures that kind of fine images can electric as Blasco matic images in murky like. I've always found your your work very poetic where it was poetry. A big part part of your development in terms of nothing. That's maybe not so much a year photography but in terms of learning to sort of observe the world he s Steel is like a lot of adults different aspects of literature but the thing about literature.

I remember thinking wow that was bad ass and then I felt a little guilty. 'cause it was like Oh. I don't want to be rooting against my country but Saddam Hussein said George W Bush you have forty eight hours to turn out to leave the United States of America. He just responded right back to him and he goes now you no actually you have forty eight hours and then that always made you realize how absurd it was like how absurd a claim to just say to some other leader of a country and then he said we will fight this sworn we will win this war and I was like God. Damn that is kind of bad as but you are wrong. You are not going to win this war but that was fucking anyway.

I've heard this back from person. After person there are all at first it was so daunting. I didn't know what was going on and then by the time you hit lake your eighth ninth Kosovo.

"So, but unfortunately, what happened though, I think was whether it was the way he took what you had said or when gene invited him like he didn't have like a polite way to invited him on Twitter, essentially, and it was more like he was throwing down at challenge, which then Shapiro pulled that same thing about oh, don't cat. Call me. I don't you response whatever and just ignored it, which I thought was unfortunate because the way the thing was supposed to work, and again, like I'm not that prejudice against the do because I think he's sort of bad on issues from a long time ago, but I actually vary ignorant about him. And I thought they going into the thing that that was good. So I wouldn't be in there. Arguing with him as much as arguing the points that were arguing this is my position on terror war. Let's argue about the terror war. Than arguing about each other. Or even with each other really in that way. I wanted you know, that was what I thought the whole point was and I thought that possibly if he'd been approached in a little bit more neutral manner, he might have agreed to it. But as it was people were throwing down the gauntlet to to dairy, debate Horton, dude and read tweeting and whatever in a way where you know. I think he was kinda put off. So that's never going to happen. Unfortunately. Control our maniac listeners. Now, you get an and so fortunate that he should have gone ahead and done it. Anyway, you know, because I mean, frankly, I think what I know about is. He smart enough to put on a really good case for the hawks point of view. Right. Like, that's why he would be a good guy today. And I think I'm pretty good at deflate in that case. So it seemed like a pretty even match seemed like a good match to argue on the merits and nothing personal because I never written about this do before talks about them before or vice versa. I'm sure he doesn't even know who I so. There was no reason for any acrimony. Good had a real good one. Like, sure San versus this versus this. An ran institute guy the other day, right where?.

"Com slash podcast. I'm Marco werman. This is the world if you know, Tim, Horton's, you know, they are to Canada what Dunkin donuts is to us here in New England. Tim Horton himself was a famous hockey player, but the king of this Canadian coffee and Donut empire was a man named Ron Joyce. Joyce died yesterday aged eighty eight he grew up poor and made his fortune and reputation as a ruthless businessman. He did give part of his wealth to helping kids. The Tim Horton children's foundation. For example, runs a network of summer camps for underprivileged kids might not sound like much until you start to speak with some of their alumni Sheila Cole is one of them. I grew up in a big city just outside of Toronto called Mississauga. My parents split when I was really young. And I was primarily raised by my mom, and you know, when she had an undesirable youth herself in in. There wasn't a lot of resources available. I grew up in a house with three of my five siblings. We are low income, you know, we haven't level of dysfunction we needed support. We were actually when I was seven I was enrolled into the big brothers big sisters program and through that program was introduced to the Tim Horton's camp and be exposed to fun and childhood and adventures it was it was pretty incredible. So this new sense of kind of fun and enjoying your childhood at this camp. I mean that was kind of in contrast to what you were living in Mississauga. I mean, those weren't you like living by yourself at some point and you came. Yeah. So when my teens was pretty. There was quite a few challenges that I faced eyeing my dad passed away when I was fourteen didn't really get to know him as well as they wish I had my sister ran away from home. And then I two with sixteen was living on my own an apartment to. Yeah. I was I had to crow up really fast. So you go to this camp that Ron Joyce founded the Tim Horton's camp was there an experience that you remember at camp that kind of stayed with you and may be looking back at it. Now, you see a useful life lesson. Many like they had a leadership program they still have that. And it's really strategically developed, and it's ten days I camp, but six of those days you spend on a canoe trip, and you pour Taj canoes you're paddling for climate or is at a time. You know, I'm a very small girl. I'm as an adult now, even one hundred ten pounds. But I, you know. Oh, poor touched a canoe by myself for ten kilometers, and which is incredible in such a huge accomplishment for kid, but beyond that is you just feel like, wow, I just did something I didn't think I could. You start to believe in yourself. You know? One thing that I absolutely didn't like is having people feel sorry for me. And there was not a time. I can't that. I felt that the counselors felt sorry for us. I mean that that's a really powerful lesson. But I'm wondering do connect those lessons to Tim Horton's donuts and Ron Joyce. Absolutely. I am the camp is. The life lessons that they teach you like I said it's fair developed, and they're empowering you, and they're encouraging you, and I'm I'm a mom. So those are things that I do with my children. I'm giving them a voice, which is something that the camp is at the top of their priority list is making you feel like you're valuable and then also teaching you life skills like what you need to to enter the workforce. They help you.
