Software update aims to foil app trackers and digital advertisers. Here's how by philip lucas austin. Apple's next major software update for the iphone is set to give users more control of their privacy and could significantly alter the way advertisers and app developers do business. Ios fourteen point five already in the hands of beta testers and scheduled for release later. This month puts serious restrictions on the information. Third parties can gather from iphone and ipad users without their permission that data usually used for ad tracking and targeting his highly sought after by companies. Which is why. The new privacy features are infuriating advertisers. At makers and some of apple's biggest silicon valley neighbors facebook has pushed back publicly against the new protections while google which also uses the data and myriad ways has resorted to less effective ad tracking measures and avoiding triggering. Apple's new anti tracking features. What do apples new app tracking transparency or. Att rules do exactly for one. They require app developers to submit information about the user data. They collect how it will be used. And whether developers will further track users and send them targeted ads as part of the new framework. Each apps. privacy policy will be prominently displayed on its app store page allowing users to see what data the app is using the track them what it knows about them and whether that data is being sold to other businesses of course data you willingly give over with an apps like searches and the like is still fair. Gay men can be used without you express permission apple leadership including ceo tim cook and svp of software engineering cred. Federici had spoken publicly about the need for increased consumer control of personal data at a moment of rampant disinformation and conspiracy theories juiced by algorithms. We can no longer turn a blind eye to a theory of technology. That says all engagement is good engagement the longer the better and all with the goal of collecting as much data as possible said cook at a virtual privacy focused conference in january. The company's even gone so far as to create a basic guide on how data collected by apps without consumers knowledge is used to target people in invasive ways. Privacy advocates like nonprofit organization the electronic frontier foundation say. Apple's moves are a win for consumer data protection. The system reinforces itself by lulling consumers into the myth that it's just adds says. Eff's jenny gephardt when we say it's just adds. They are the visible tip of the iceberg of this sprawling data sharing network. It does not work in any users best interest. The app store information is displayed in an easy to read label that shows which apps are collecting what data as long as they're being transparent of course developers can make their case to users in the app before asking for permission to access private data but apps must respect the user's permission settings and not attempt to manipulate trick or force people to consent to unnecessary data access. According to apple's guidelines users won't see much of a change otherwise developers and ad based companies however can expect their fortunes to fall by more than a little companies are expecting. Apples tightened privacy policy to make it harder for targeted ads to reach their well target. Apple's att changes will reduce visibility into key metrics that show how ads drive conversions like app installs and sales and will affect how advertisers value and bid on ad impressions said google in a blog post describing changes. It's making to its ad tracking as such app. Publishers significant impact to their google ad revenue on ios. After apple's att policies take effect. Facebook said it would display a prompt suggesting users enabled tracking to see better personalized ads. But that the decision would have a disproportionate impact on small businesses depending on targeted advertising a move. The company says only benefits larger advertisers including companies. Like apple itself whether that will be enough to entice users to share intimate details like location. Data is an open question for the social network giant currently app developers must disclose the information they're tracking which has led to some ridiculously long disclosure lists from apps like facebook and whatsapp would the changes consumers become more aware of which companies won't access to their data while apple can claim it's protecting users from overreaching companies the protections also help apple to differentiate ios from google's android platform especially from perspective buyers worried about privacy intrusions a recent bloomberg report detailed google's early efforts to create its own version of anti-trafficking that would likely not require an opt in prompt but details are scarce. Another worry for consumers. The data companies collect is sometimes sold under the table. The two hundred billion dollar data broker industry is lucrative and has many unlikely bedfellows. Operators of the weather channel app settled a lawsuit last summer that alleged. The app misled millions of customers into sharing location data. The suit also alleged that the operators sold the information to third parties. Without consumer's consent a recent motherboard report detailed how the us military's counterterrorism branch used data from multiple apps including dating and prayer apps to track users illegally while companies like twitter and snapchat have fallen in line with new guidelines. Facebook has responded rather vociferously. The company took out full page ads in several newspapers to discuss the harm. It says add blocking tack will have on small businesses. it also started. The good ideas deserve to be found initiative which highlights how personalized ads are an important way. People discover small businesses on facebook and instagram. Some advertisers see in the shifting advertising landscape to james nord ceo of influence or marketing agency for the changes present a chance to make brand ambassadors more important to businesses ad campaigns as larger campaigns done through platforms like facebook or google. Become less effective. Won't i o s devices for connects brands to influencers and relevant audiences and helps them manage metrics like views likes and overall effectiveness asset pushing a product restricting apps access to user data makes targeted advertising more difficult less effective and more expensive which means an influencers predominantly opt in audience of followers becomes all the more valuable. We know what their interests are says noord to brands. That means marketing budgets. Might see a shift from facebook's pockets to a smaller more focused group of influencers to nord. Apples established position as a hardware manufacturer allows it to use its privacy changes to its advantage as its own marketing scheme to lure people away from competitors who make money by following your online habits for its part google is sidestepping the new change as much as possible opting to avoid the app tracking transparency pop up by opting to not use that. Apple's ide- fa a tool advertisers used to track users between apps for advertising purposes by avoiding apples ad tracking tool entirely. When apple's policy goes into effect we will no longer use information such as it fa that falls under att for the handful of our ios apps that currently use it for advertising purposes said the company and blog post as such. We will not show the att prompt apps in line with apple's guidance while the company is offering guidelines to prepare for ios fourteen point five release. It also suggested. Advertisers should be ready for a significant decrease in reach when it comes to advertising on ios devices.

Are The Kids Alright?

"The rework is brought to you by base camp when your internal communications or spread across emails documents rise and group chats. People put put things in the wrong place. Things get lost in translation and it's hard to hold anybody accountable. Basecamp put all your internal communication in one place. Everyone sees the same thing thing and nothing gets lost. There's still time before the New Year starts to make a change. Put a stop to scattered information and miscommunication and set your team up for success in Twenty Kony twenty basecamp dot com to sign up for free thirty day trial when Geneva part was the kid she and her friends wanted to get a cool. New website called my space. The problem was that site was blocked on their school computers. I wanted to get to my face. I couldn't do it and and so I figured out how to use a proxy and those the first time I realize like wow. I can make the computer what I wanted to do. It was a big lightbulb moment. Those kind of cute and fun today. Jenny unease associate director of research at the Electronic Frontier Foundation or EFF. An online privacy rights group may very first day here in the office. I was assigned and working on student. Privacy and leading report that we ended up publishing a little over two years ago we were looking at Google APPS. Education and school issued chromebooks primarily but now the lines have blurred so far beyond any of the issues. That were really kind of state of the art in terms of the student. Privacy playing field in two thousand seventeen. Now we're forcing students what they are exposed to face recognition exposed to gate recognition surveillance exposed to kind of comprehensive text mining of everything. They're typing Out I worry very much that we're kind of socializing a new generation that this is the bargain that you trade your privacy and your interior already for for convenience or for safety welcome to rework a podcast about the better way to work and run your business. I M Whelan wrong and I'm Shawn Hilton. We've been talking a lot about privacy and surveillance on the show. Recently we didn't episode about how basecamp remove tracking pickles from its emails and we didn't episode about how employers monitor their workers today. We're looking at population that being monitored at an earlier stage children parental or societal anxiety. Around the safety of children is not new but these fears have been amplified by technology at the same time that we're dealing with teen depression mental health challenges and school shootings adults are desperate for solutions. And there's a number of companies that are marketing software to both schools and parents promising to help keep their kids safe. These programs might pinpoint child's location or scan their social media posts for certain keywords on today's episode. We're going to take a closer look at the software that monitors kids and the trade offs were making in the name of protecting young people. This episode gets us into territory and pretty allergic to on a personal level which is evaluating how people parent women and mothers in particular are subject to scrutiny. Scrutiny and shame around parenting decisions on a level. I find horrifying but the issue of children and privacy is an important one not just for parents but for anyone who's concerned about surveillance capitalism which suspect as much of our audience and if you've been following our show you know that we've been talking a lot about privacy big tack artificial official intelligence and the harm that gets perpetrated often unwittingly we operate as though technology platforms are neutral this issue touches on all those topics and beast camp both as a company and is a software product is not neutral when it comes to these issues. I'm not neutral so we're going to get into it one quick. No you won't hear directly reckless from any of the software companies themselves. I reached out to several of them that they either didn't get back to me or declined to be interviewed. Okay here's the show my name is Caroline Hoskins I magic -nology reporter at Buzzfeed News. I cover things that have to do with surveillance. Capitalism tack power. The things that come in between those things buzzfeed news has been doing a series on school surveillance and November it published a piece by Caroline about Gaggle a company that makes what are called called four prophets safety management tools. I knew that Gaggle was a thing for a long time because it was actually used at my high school sped around since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight but the different print is that over the past couple of years gaggle has been offering more and more services and recently it became a google partner for education meaning that it's promoted by Google as something that partners with itchy sweet toil and the reason why adopted by so many schools especially over the past. Couple of years. There's an increasing amount of paranoia paranoia about a couple of things. There's a lot of anxiety around school shootings and around mental health issues in students meaning like teen depression suicides. Both of these. These things require a lot of resources. But we're gaggle comes in. Is that it pretty much authors itself as a tool. That's able to address these problems at A. I mean relatively low cost. I mean it's still cost like tens of thousands of dollars. It's less than a typical salary of like one on staff individual. It promises that it can save student lives from suicide. Hundreds of lives per year by pretty much monitoring anything that kids input on on their school accounts so this includes like email calendar events chats and even documents like a Microsoft word document or Google document. They're they're looking. For trigger. Words and artificial intelligence. scriven tools are going to scan things and look for specific words so this could be a combination of profanity and things that Gaggle deems to be associated with self harm bullying harassment things that are questionable. Things that have to do with drugs even things that have to do with is being an LGBTQ student. The word lesbian was flagged for instance. But basically how how gaggle works the. Ai Flags the words and a contract worker. That's paying aid around dollars. An hour is responsible for going through it all and escalating if they believed a Sudanese actually risk or not the response can range from from email mornings two students to emailing or calling administrators directly. There's evidence of imminent self harm or violence and if the company can't get in touch with the school for urgent alerts they call law enforcement when I talked to adolescent mental health professionals. One thing that they emphasized is that escalating things like this calling the police calling teachers that could also have adverse consequences for their mental health. Treatment could actually set them back rather than you know helping them if they are actually at risk of arm themselves in that situation gaggle prominently. Tout's its ability to prevent self harm among students on its website it says in the eighteen nineteen school year Gaggle helped district save seven hundred twenty two students from carrying out an act of suicide. That's a very specific number. And they're not the only company making big claims about saving lives the website for Barak accompanied that makes monitoring software for both schools and parents says sixteen ecksteen school shootings prevented twenty thousand severe self harm situations detected Caroline Haskins reporting at buzzfeed news focused on Gaggle. So these kinds of the numbers are difficult to verify. You're trying to quantify something that did not happen just by the nature of the situation. It's really hard to point a firm number on on it especially given the way that gaggle actually works and the way that it's disconnected from the end of the line outcomes the sales pitch. Is it stops. Shootings meetings starts self-harm a lot of that. I don't see but I am involved in. Let's get it setup. Let's get integrated into the systems and whatnot. And then it's sort of set it and forget it kind of thing. Ryan Stanley has worked in. It for Alaska Public Schools for the last twenty years. He's based in Juneau. The state capital and provides nights. It services to mostly rural districts. Think we have about a dozen district's right now. One of them has one school with ten students in it. Another another one has six schools that are each in their own village and each villages. One hundred fifty two hundred plus miles away from the others one of those villages when you look at it from the aerial map the entire villages smaller than the landing Strip Ryan has seen school districts around Alaska contracting with companies like Gaggle gone and another one called managed methods both integrate with Google G. Suite and Microsoft office three sixty five making them attractive to schools that are already using these educational tools. Also Ryan is also a parent. His daughter attends a middle school in Juneau that uses bark. This is the company that has products for schools and families and said it's prevented sixteen gene. School shootings bark for families is nine dollars. A month bark for schools is free and has a feature called the parent portal that sends notifications to families during during non school hours like weekends and holidays. The portal also sends weekly summary emails in the email. It says something like activity five five google documents and seven emails or something like that but when you click on the links it invites you to sign up and subscribe so they can give it away for free. Eighty two schools so that they can get access to advertising directly to those families so that the families can then sign up and use it on more than just the school device vice. You know in my daughter's case she and her friends were specifically researching the rates of domestic violence against women in Alaska which is ridiculously significant significant those numbers and that caused our principal to come in and chat with her about it because the principal got an email that had a list of keywords in it but didn't really know what was actually happening in the classroom. Some of the emails quite literally are just a list of the key words with the number of instances in them so it doesn't say EH. The students seems like they feel this. It says this document has this many instances of the word gun. This many instances of the word hate this many instances of the word the guy or whatever Ryan wrote an op Ed for the Juneau Empire about the use of bark in local schools in it. He argued that using the software could lead to young and people censoring themselves. He talked to one of his daughters middle school classmates. Who'd also been flagged for a false positive astor just going to change? How you do your schoolwork? And she said who are probably just won't use those words anymore. She wasn't concerned. So much about getting flagged or even at that. Her principal came talk to her. But it was more just that she didn't want to have the hassle and so rather than take a risk of having having the hassle of having to have a conversation with the principal. Well she's just going to avoid using certain words in her schoolwork and that's hard because especially in the younger grades you know you want to figure out how to get students to be as creative as possible. You don't want them to be censoring themselves in Juneau. The school district got pushback from students and parents over their roll out of bark as a result of the backlash the district got the company to make some changes like holding data for a shorter amount of time and cutting the profanity. Filter Bark also agreed to stop sending marketing emails to parents about their paid service. Yes we do need to be able to use technology to help the deal with the huge tidal wave of technology but we have to also figure out a way to bring the the humanity back to my hope for the school that my daughter goes to and and the high school that she's about to go to is that we'll have more than just these sort of false positive laden emails going going to a principal but that were actually being a bit more active about teaching students and and the adults how to how to build good academic relationships support each other. There's that false positives are worth it. If we can save those seven hundred something lives again. This Gephardt from the F. F. again kind of no evidence of what the counterfactual under factual is no evidence of what other more tried and true interventions would have done right. It's very hard to test that claim we haven't seen any independent evaluations of those is Queens. But the false positives that we see you have comical cases where for example students are texting about to kill mockingbird. There was a school where one of the teachers last last names as a razor but then we keep going down the false positive road. Well what if a student is texting about lyrics to songs with that disproportionately impact students of color or or students were listening to music by musicians of color in listening to hip hop and so it's exposing kids to much more scrutiny much more automatically in ways that have really concrete harm arm that disproportionately impact kids who might already behave in ways. That are outside the norm. It could in many districts impact. Disabled students reportedly students of color. Disproportionately we're seeing a rush across the nation really of school districts are rushed to this technological fix to these problems with huge emotional national stakes without enough investigation of what the harms could be students. Caroline Haskins buzzfeed news has identified another concerning aspect of Gaggle. It has a three strikes rule which context school officials in the case of multiple violations because the system scans for words like Gay Lesbian and Queer share. This means that a student using the word clear three times for example may get flagged so even though it's not the same as threatening another student which gets escalated to features. Choose immediately if you do something three times and Meek Goggles three-strikes roles. It's still going to get escalated. Sarah Roberts who's scholar who specializes in content automation. She also talked about how three strike roll like that invokes. The sort of logic are the judicial system in a way. That's a little bit strange for a student. Didn't that's using profanity or things that have to do with like LGBTQ expression on a school account. We're concerned about the fact that this information will be shared with law enforcement and that it could actually be used to create profiles of young people that would not have interactions with the system while they're still in school. Marie Cocco feffer corn is the executive director of the Midwest Center for school. TRANSFORMATION IN MINNEAPOLIS MINNESOTA. Her work focuses on data smart cities and education. This is data collection. This is surveillance and data collection and it just makes it much easier to criminalise students when you have all this information earlier this year. Morocco was part of a group of community leaders in Saint. Paul that helped and data sharing agreement between the public schools. The city and the county the agreement would have mused predictive analytics to assign a risk score to young people one of the indicators that they were going to use to assign Risk Gore was a student's suspension record occurred and understanding that in Minnesota. The suspensions are punitive in nature and harm a lot of black and brown children and in two thousand eighteen. I'm forty three school. Districts were identified for discriminating in out of school. Suspensions with black and Brown students there are trends that say you know a white student might do one behavior behavior. A black student do the same behavior. But it's described differently and therefore the punishment is also very different worldwide student. They're just precocious where a black student would be described as loud and disruptive the Brennan Center for Justice a think tank and advocacy group has been tracking the use of surveillance technologies in schools. It says that school district spent one point one million dollars on social media monitoring twenty eighteen off from just fifteen thousand. I was in five hundred dollars in two thousand thirteen. The Brennan Center was pulling its numbers from a database of self reporting government purchases so at thinks the real amount of spending on the software could be much higher Maria feffer Corn Jenny Gephardt and others see this environment of increased surveillance and law enforcement in schools is one that feels especially punitive to students of color and other vulnerable populations that atmosphere can lead to students getting pushed out of the traditional school system. A lot of conversation Shen has been emerging around safety in particular after the school shootings and so there are a lot of vendors out there that are providing what they're calling alternatives turnips to school districts to prevent such things from happening. What we have seen an increase in surveillance of students whether it's by having having more metal detectors the increasing use of cameras across schools school resource officers that have body cams using surveillance using gate recognition ignition on students using GPS to track where they are on school grounds? We're also seeing different kinds of text mining and kind of artificial intelligence or machine learning powered our tools to do things as simple as flagging keywords to have much more insidious things like trying to flag. What activities a kid may be interested in doing and when the way you interpret what you're reading on social media can be looked at through a racially biased lens and again you end up hyper surveilling students of color? Because of the way they talk not because of actions that would actually lead you to believe that they were a threat. There's a long history of concern with communities of color. About how how. That information is being used or will be used whether it's for identifying undocumented students with ice and sharing that information with them or it it could actually be used against families that they're collecting social media information around that one student but they're also collecting information about their siblings their peers and and their family members and so what is on one person's social media page could include a lot of people that are giving up their information without their knowledge edge. When it comes to this monitoring we look at the school shootings that have happened and it has not been are black and Brown students that have have been involved in those shootings or being the shooters and yet we see this hyper level of surveillance that's going to be happening in our urban communities that will fixate on black and Brown bodies and that really is concerning to us? This new approach to school safety is not coming from youth. It's not coming from parents. It's often coming from officials and vendors who are trying to sell solutions because what folks myself included have been asking for. Is We'd like to see a greater presence of counselors and social workers versus having school resource officers and metal detectors and what we see is a divestment in in those types of solutions and investment in technology versus human centered approaches and solutions. This approach of surveilling your children the name of keeping them safe safe. It's again kind of this. Techno Magic cure that promises to see patterns and catch signs that we as humans miss by again. There's very little evans that it does. And it's an easy out when maybe the harder thing is talking to your kids we see as the same thing for schools right. It is maybe in some ways in easy out the promises to be a new thing that will improve on the methods we already have but maybe right dedicated professionals and involve parents are already some of the best methods out there that are very hard to improve upon upon and that I think machine learning certainly can't match after the break we explore the normative transparency in data implications of this monitoring technology at home and in schools. But first let's check in with base camps head of Product Strategy Ryan Singer. Recently he's been interviewing customers about some of the problems. basecamp helps to solve. Yes so one of the customers that we talked to. She's telling her team over and over again. You know. Don't come to me. It's Base Camp Right. And eventually she just put sign on the front of her door. That says before entering. Ask Yourself did you look in Base Camp I. She was the one who is sort like the brain. She held all of the information about the jobs that were running. She had all the documents. She knew all the changes as they were happening. She was the one one who knew all the information and everybody who is doing the work they would go to her and ask what was going on and what they needed to do and she's thinking herself. I don't need to be spending all my time answering answering these questions. Like I've got my own work to do. You know I've got stuff that I'm trying to do here and I'm getting interrupted with phone calls and answering emails all the time like why am I spending my time doing this. She he ended up asking a friend for some advice. She said look. I've got this problem. Is there something I can do here. And the friend recommended base camp and when she went and she looked at base camp what she saw was that everything everything was going to be in one place and everybody was going to be able to see it so if she put all the documents all the communication there in the central place they could just go see it themselves. They wouldn't have to ask her anymore so first off she gets everything in there and she says okay. I can actually see that. This is easy enough off that they're going to be able to use it because that's the first thing like if it's complicated or weird or hard to get into that nobody's GonNa use it right so she knows it's possible she says finally this. Is it easy looking one. But of course like habits take time to change so people are still coming to her at first and she's saying no go check base camp no and then she the sign on on the door right but before long everybody had figured it out and they had all learned what to do you know they all new to go to base camp to find the information that they needed and then this is the kind of thing where are we here quotes saying I got my sanity back or this kind of thing which sounds extreme but you know Go from never being able to get your own work done. Because you're getting interrupted interrupted all the time to actually having time to focus and do you need to do so. She got to a place where now she could focus on her work. Without interruptions you too can reclaim in your time. Just like she did take pace camp before the year's over and tell everybody there's a new place to find their answers in two thousand twenty go to base camp dot COM to set up a free thirty day trial. One thing that we do is prevention education going into schools and and talking to students not about abuse but about healthy relationships that are founded on trust and respect and safety and trying to build uh-huh social norms around that in. I would argue that. We should be doing this as early as possible in elementary school. Adam Dodge is is the founder of End Tab a nonprofit that trains social service agencies law enforcement state court systems and other groups to prevent encounter. What's called tech enabled abuse? This is the way in which familiar forms of abuse that existed for a long time or simply being perpetrated by technology or augmented by technology technology. What we see with teens tweens who are early? Adopters of technology and high volume uses of technology. is we see forms of abuse that we're usually reserved for the real world really amped up in those environments so for example rumors spreading that's form abuses has existed for a long time but when you add add that to social media. It's like pouring gasoline on a fire. Fifty nine percent of teens thirteen to seventeen report experiencing cyber bullying and that can be named calling. That could be rumors spreading nonconsensual instrument imagery physical things like that. These are the kinds of issues that keep parents parents and administrators up at night and especially anxiety inducing when a lot of adults don't know how to keep themselves safe online don't fully grasp the technology their children are using. It's no wonder that when companies come along marketing these APPS that promise to keep kids safe parents. See it as a lifeline. I've talked to a lot of different parents about whether using the existing existing apps like family sharing or find my iphone or different built in location sharing functionality in an existing phones owns or adding an APP. Like life. Three sixty that will tell you the child's location. It will tell you how much battery they have left on the phone. That will tell you how fast they're driving things that are inherently had. Just WanNa make sure my kids falling speed limit. I WANNA make sure if they're in an emergency their phones not dead but that is a slippery very slow. I have real mixed feelings about them. Because I see the APPS especially ones that are monitoring apps for tracking APPS I see those used maliciously all the time so I'm always a little concerned that introducing that kind of framework to a young mind introduces an idea that they can use in the future. Oh well this is normal. My mom did this with me and tracking someone because you care about them is okay. So I put this on my boyfriend's phone or my girlfriend's phone because I care about them and I want to know where they are. So you can start to see how the the lines start to get a little blurred between safety and something that may be a little more unhealthy elsie. Jenny Gephardt at the F.. Doesn't have mixed feelings about these APPs. She sees them as Stalker wear which is software that allows someone to survey another person without their knowledge edge in October the US Federal Trade Commission brought its first ever case against the maker of stocker where the company had sold three products that it said were for monitoring children in an employee's one of them was called Teen Shield one thing. That's quite clear about these different absence. Software is that I think they are absolutely on the spectrum term of tech enabled abuse and on the spectrum of domestic abuse and it's often advertised as child safety software and then it is overwhelmingly used to spy I on spouses or spy on X.'s. Where we're also seeing is that some of the companies that are civilian schools are also advertising to parents? There is a very uncomfortable relationship between child title safety software and terrifying stocker. Wear and spouse where they're doing the exact same things on a technical level even if apparent I'm talking to has no no intention attention to abuse her third child. It's worth reminding them that. These tools are used by people who do people who are engaged in actual domestic abuse people who are secretly spying on their child with the content of controlling them. Do you WANNA download the same APP and use the same technology as them. These technologies and these techniques regardless of how they're packaged or how they're advertised. They come down to spying. Become down to secretly spying on the people you love and that's not love that's control one important thing to note in the FTC complaints against the Stock Aware Company company is that the government makes it clear that monitoring children and employees are legitimate uses of these APPs in fact the FTC's proposed settlement with the company would require people who buy the software to promise that they'll only use it on kids employees or adults who give them written permission in short in the eyes of the government. There is no Oh expectation of privacy in schools or in the workplace Ryan Stanley the parents in Alaska with misgivings about his daughter's school using bark sees this distinction very a clearly in his job in it. For Alaska public schools. He sometimes asked to monitor student activity. We had a student who was off task and the teacher contacted the IT group in one of the IT group to help monitor the student's work and so throughout the day the it team would take periodic screen screen shots of the students screen. We could see that the students screen would quit very quickly change between tabs the book report that they we're supposed to be working on regarding coffee and hunting scopes so this is a student who lives in rural place where hunting is a big deal. The the fact that you're on your school account and you have this feeling like it's yours. That's miss misguided like a modern healthy digital. Oh citizen would know that all those Zeros and ones belong to the school and it's the school's job to keep students safe so they get to make those kind of decisions. This idea of promoting digital citizenship is what the company say a lot to. Here's Caroline Haskins of Buzzfeed News. The thing that's worth noting is the way that the logic goggle l. translates into the workplace the logic of having everything that you write and do on an account that's associated with an institution that you're a part of having having all of that surveilled monitored is something that translates beyond the educational space. And it's something that students are from a very young age. Topsy is okay okay. There's also no easy way to opt out of monitoring at school when the software is integrated into the tools and devices that students need to complete their assignments. There's is often a lack of transparency that this monitoring even taking place several of the companies including Gaggle say they recommend disclosing this information to parents but the backlash in in communities like Juneau has partially been about families. Feeling like they've been kept in the dark. All of these decisions are not made typically in a public space. I mean these are decisions that are made among school administrators with people that are selling software. It's not like this is happening at a PTA meeting or a town hall all but among some of the experts that I spoke with a lot of them argued that this is something that should be discussed a little bit more publicly among everybody that is going to be involved and their caretakers takers here. In the twin cities minute talk. Public schools had started social media monitoring and it was to the surprise of many of the students their families and community members again. This is Maria feffer. Corn Education Advocate Minnesota often when it is included for information nation with families it is tucked into the terms and conditions. That folks sign off at at the beginning of the year and not paying a lot of tension to of what they've given permission to happen even with their children's information. When you don't know about it you don't get to weigh in on whether you agree to it or not fully? What we've seen is what we call engineered consent? Where is that massive influx of information where they signed off and they don't know it's easy to monitor children's devices and accounts at home without them knowing too? That's the whole premise. Of A lot of these APPs even bark which tout its policies around privacy and says it's meant to be used alongside open communication between parents and children can be installed discreetly in in practice. People who work with youth say. They can easily circumvent the monitoring by doing stuff like hiding social media accounts from their parents. Adam Dodge of tap has seen young people go even there and use the technology on their parents. I was in a presentation to a group of folks that I worked with I was describing some of the functionality about find and my friends at by my iphone and things like that and one of the women said Oh yeah I was just add. CVS or rite aid the other day and my daughter texted me and said Hey. Will you pick up some toilet paper. And she said sure in one about her shopping. Then stop doesn't wait a second. How does she know I'm at CVS right now and master's ooh set up a fine? My friends on your phone just didn't tell you about it. I set it up a two way street in. It's really not about the technology right. It's about consent. It's about respect it's about trust you know all these foundational concepts that were trying to work into healthy relationships. It's all showing up in the ways we I use technology responsibly. Hope that we can bestow those lessons on our kids having an ongoing conversation with the child around Consent Privacy Z.. And healthy behavior can feel like the scariest thing of all Ryan Stanley in Juneau. Alaska knows the struggle firsthand. He and his wife use an APP called screen guide. That's part the bigger plan. They hashed out with their daughter. He sees it as kind of putting on training wheels for a few years. You know I want to say that we have a great recipe. Figure it out and I think we have a pretty good recipe but it's just constantly being challenged and is a moving target. We called it the family media plan. It says things like you have to talk to mom and dad before you create a new account on anything. Mom and dad will always know the passwords for all these accounts. If we're ever feel like we need to we're gonNA take a look and see what's going on our US news screen guide which allows us to turn her phone just time given a timeout altogether but that also lets us enable only certain maps. We definitely talked about it and we were able to kind of say. Okay here's this thing it's called the phone and it's amazing privilege that you're getting and with it is gonNA come this period of time where we're going to be up in your business trying to help make sure that you're safe and kind of learning along the way one of the ones that a lot of the kids on instagram is they'll friend bots that will get them followers. She was telling me about one of her. Friends has so many followers I and I was scrolling through them and they're all all. The followers were from foreign countries and they were very kind of weird names. Not like human names and just that conversation. It was difficult in our household at least for a thirteen year old. She just wants to have like her own identity in her own space Jason her own experience of these things and how your parents constantly being like. What's that what's that? What do you think about that? Let's talk about this Is Annoying annoying in other thing. That Ryan has middle school daughter and her friends do is take those online quizzes. Like what Harry Potter character. Are you. Sometimes one person will pass their phone around and everyone takes the quizzes on the same device and so I try to talk to her about really nerdy things like well. You know if you're signed in as you and you're filling out that survey then it's possible. They're collecting data on you and then if you hand the phone to your friend and they fill out stuff a searching for stuff type stuff in then those databases recorded rated as you. So do you want that you know. How do I care about privacy? And how do I care about whether my my survey about which which Harry Potter character I am is being recorded by Cambridge Analytical are where they're gonNA look all the harmonies and all her. My unease are going to vote for so and so that's the other thing about digital citizenship to borrow a term that these monitoring companies use privacy. Experts have a lot of concerns when it comes to how apps like bark and Gaggle store the data they collect and for how long again. Here's Johnny Gephardt with the EFF. Are they collecting it and keeping it until you graduate or are no longer in the school system like okay. What happens then is it actually deleted and thrown into a volcano off the face of the Earth very technologically difficult to do right secure? Deletion is a very difficult problem problem. And if not that okay is it aggregated. Is it an itemized. Another really hard thing to do to effectively anonymous data sets we can expect a data set at bark mark or Gaggle Perhaps to be leaked we can also expect it to be shared somewhere down the line. That's the thing that we have to prepare for right. Even if the current leadership of the company says they'll never do that they could be sold for even if we trust the holder of this data. Right now we might not trust the person in charge of it tomorrow. And then let's say our anonymised aggregated data to say is shared and all of a sudden it becomes much easier to denies it with every headline about a data breach with headline about people demonizing Census Data Ada. It becomes more and more concrete people. This is something we need to think about. Even if it's not actively happening right now there is a high likelihood that it will look at the business this model and is that business model in the interest of your children and their safety Are there ways at that. Business Model could corrupt a service that you might like entrust today how. How could that change in the future? Right great can you imagine advertising playing enrollment. Can you imagine certain types of data sharing whether with other companies or with the government. There are a lot of ways that even if and it's a big if even if you trust and value a service right now that it could change in a big way in the future I mean look the erosion of facebook's privacy policy over the past ten years the need for overall consumer we're educated about privacy and online security is. Why at a lot of Adam dodgers trainings? He recommends that families sit down and tackle this stuff together. He says. Start googling yourself and putting your email address into have I been shown dot com to check whether it's been exposed in a data breach then drill down into setting up strong passwords getting a password password manager and enabling two factor authentication. Those steps established a baseline for trickier ongoing conversations. Again tell parents hey. Don't put these these tracking APPS or these monitoring APPs on your kids devices but we can say is look you should really be having conversations about the reasoning behind that. Because I feel like if you're just putting tracking APP on a phone and saying hey this is normal and this is normal behavior in this is healthy behavior. Then they're gonNA grow up thinking that and if they decide to use that in a way that's not healthy they might have a real tough time delineating between the positive negatives of a decision like that. There isn't a parenting APP. Remember Monitoring Monitoring APPs but there isn't a parenting APM. I think knowing the difference is really important and really having conversations about consent privacy expectations with How that technology is going to be used as so powerful because not only does it affect the relationship between parent and their child but you're also setting an example all for how they should treat others moving forward and how they should treat their partners or their kids in the future someday and I think I think that's incredibly powerful? We shouldn't mistake this as a technology issue. We should see this for what it is. which is a human relationships issue? It's a parenting issue. I was in high school when the Columbine shooting took place and I'm not old enough to have a daughter who is the age of the children who were killed in Sandy Hook. I don't know how to address depression and bullying and mass mass shootings and white nationalism. And all these extra central threats to my child and her classmates but also know that for me personally. I'm not going to find the answer and an APP made by venture backed company. Jenny Gephardt from the F. F. for her part things. We should look to kids for ideas. If there is a silver aligning to this pervasive surveillance. Panopticon that we are putting our students and I say that with a big if if there is a silver lining is that is going to give students a chance to realize that they. They can control their own technology that they can circumvent surveillance and censorship. That's imposed on them. It could be that same lightbulb moment that I had in middle school trying to get to my space. Uh on a much larger scale so I think there's at least in an educational moment both for students and for parents. There's all sorts of ways right. Every family is different. Every parent is going to have different fears and priorities but across the board they need more information bark and gaggle are not going to give them the facts they need and increasingly schools. Aren't either. I think parents should not be expected indigo yet. Computer Science degrees in law degrees so that they can read through all these privacy policies and look through all this settings themselves. The goal of keeping students safe is one that we absolutely all agree on by these kind of privacy. Invasions that affect really your sense of self affect your ability to learn affect how safe psychologically you feel at school and at home that it has to be considered to what we could be. Teaching children is not to succumb to their technological overlords but how to make them better certainly we all agree right in this moment. Omen of Tech Lash against big tech and this lack of faith in technology's role in our lives that perhaps the next generation is very well positioned to make that better and improve approve upon it is produced by Waylon long and me Sean.

Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal

The internet is magic

"Not for the first time and not for the last. I will begin this program by saying this political news got all the glory this week, the economic news is what's gonna last from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm KAI Ryssdal. It is Friday the very first day of March two thousand nineteen good as always to have you along everybody. This has been oh, what's the word an interesting economic week? I guess we got some fed stuff. We've got some trade stuff. We've got some politics stuff as well. Also, we've got Gina smiling shoes from Bloomberg Dan Ronan is at axios everybody. What's up? Oh, you know, same old same old front afternoon. So look, I I'm gonna play you to a piece of tape that we had on this program on Monday. And then we're gonna talk about it. You're ready ready? Okay. Here we go. Do you think the president has a grasp of macroeconomic policy? No not. So that was me obviously and one Janet Yellen in her office at Brookings. We spoke last week we aired at this Monday. Here's Dan my question for you. Were you surprised that she said it out loud? You know, what I like how Dr Janet Yellen is really letting jelly from BK step at the forefront and let you know with really good. Jelly from vk is not playing around. I, and you know, what this is the thing. Here's the thing that so many economists so many economic strategies so many market strategist have told me over time. It's clear that the president doesn't understand how macroeconomic policy or economic policy or even monetary policy. I don't think he understands how fiscal policy works and for her to step out and say it, I think was really great because it's been the sort of unspoken secret. And, you know, everyone in the the president's cabinet everyone on, you know, on Capitol Hill seems to save these things, and I love the genuine was just wants to know. Now, he doesn't so Gina. I'm going to play one more piece tape from you this is from the following day. It's a hearing on Capitol Hill. You may actually well have been there. I don't know the first force you're gonna here is shared Brown democratic Senator of Ojo, and then the current fetter jay-paul Hugo, thank you. Thank you again for being here term yesterday, your predecessor Janet Yellen said. He doesn't think President Trump has a grasp of macroeconomic policy is she right? I won't have any comment on that for you Senator. All right. Guess I'm not surprised of of course, he was going to say that Gina, but two point about sanding out loud. How much does it matter? Yes. I think it's an interesting question. Certainly I was really surprised to read that in your interview transcript twinning came out. I had to eat totally honest, just because. So was I. Honesty. So as I- jelly from vk because they have been so careful about avoiding sort of getting into the political fray avoiding being critical in an outright way of the Trump administration. And there's a good reason for that. You know, when they criticize politicians they open themselves up to criticism. And I think we should be clear. Janet Yellen is no longer at the fed. But that doesn't mean she has no influence at the fed. She's in regular communication with Jay pal? She said that in the interview you had with her. And so I think it's surprising to me that she would sort of open up this conversation in in such a sort of forthright way. Jay testimony since since he's the guy with the job. Now was up on the hill twice this week. Once the house wants the Senate, basically said everything's all right? You know? Yes, we have a little too much dead. And you know, I'm little worried about the economy run on gas sometime. But basically everything's fine. Right. Yeah. That's what he said. And I I was having a conversation today with a macro economist, and the interesting thing that he also said in his testimony that I really thought didn't get enough play was talking about stopping the balance sheet runoff, essentially, what he's saying is the fed is going to continue to buy hundreds of billions of dollars of bonds in perpetuity with no end in sight, the fetishes stork Lee held about one or two trillion dollars on this balance sheet. It's got more than double that right now. And the idea was if we're running this healthy economy where things are functioning as they're supposed to where people have jobs. Unemployment's low all these macroeconomic indicators are pointing up that the fed should be able to stop stimulating the economy by buying all these bonds and Powell saying, no, you know, we. Think we're probably going to stop doing that this thing that was supposed to be on automatic pilot as he said for the rest of the year really says that wow, this economy can't stand on its own. That's something I think people should pay more attention to art so Gina with with the caveat that you too are. You know fed aficionados I'm going to turn us to trade here for a second. Right. Because there were China talks last week. Robert lighthizer was on Capitol Hill this week saying you will see the deal goes it's going to be really hard your thoughts on on perhaps where or when this ends. Yes. So I think there's a really interesting question here because what Robert lighthizer said was a little bit at odds with what President Trump had previously said, you know, Trump was pretty declared. If they're making progress in lighthizer got up and had a lot of ifs as my pops. And so my call Jenny Leonard reported that US is actually I ING potentially as she Trump's on it as she from being from China Trump's summit potentially as soon as mid-march so actually. Pretty accelerated timeline there. Now that is just, you know, an anonymous source in we're not sure how realistic that is time line. But it does seem like there is still some impetus from the White House to get something done on this fairly soon. We'll let me ask you both actually in India, and you get to go first the same question. I asked last Friday, which was has the president put himself in a corner where he now has to make a deal excuse me has to make a deal because there will be and people are starting to feel the macroeconomic macroeconomic impact. Yeah. I mean, the short answer is. Yes. Like everyone on the market that I've talked to and not just recently going back six months, twelve months really since he got elected has expected that there's going to be a deal with China. We're gonna have some marginal changes a lot like what happened with NAFTA. And we're going to get a deal the president's going to call it the best ever everyone goes home for dinner that's been the expectation for the market for a long time. And everything else really has just been noise. Which is why you haven't seen a lot of market moves during the process, raw Gina, thirty seconds. Same question to you is has the president put himself in a corner here. So I'm gonna agree that yes is the short answer. I would add. Twenty six seconds. A caveat to that at this moment is that a lot of the things that were making that a really essential move that Trump had to make a lot of the cracks in the data have seemed to sort of play out not such a bad way in the last couple of weeks. You know, the stock market really rebounded. Thanks to the fed. I think we've seen fourth quarter GDP numbers came in looking grit ease knowledge, you know, the year year over year GDP was really good in the fourth quarter. And so I think those things do take some of the pressure off. Although clearly not all of it. And I think there is still the expectation certainly beacon markets that there is going to be some kind of an agreement here we will get to the consumer side of this later in the program with Mitchell Hartman that was the host of their thrown out one last item genus Molly from Bloomberg. From axios. Thanks you too. Thank you have a nice weekend. Wall Street on this Friday. Pretty good day. All in all. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. We direct your attention now to securities and Exchange Commission form s one registration statement under the securities act of nineteen thirty-three filed by lift Inc. San Francisco, California USA on this date, or in plain English at long last. We have the first big ridesharing company initial public offering, and it is not as it happens. Uber marketplace Jack Stewart takes a look at what this filing by lift tells us lift launched in twenty twelve in the filing today to found his wrote in those early days, we were told we were crazy to think people would ride in each other's personal vehicles. Now that looking to raise a hundred million dollars by going public and also maintain control at super voting Hsieh's, Kathleen Smith Renaissance Capital has been looking at the prospectus are feeling is the numbers certainly the top line numbers. Look pretty good. The finding shows lift lost nearly a billion dollars in two thousand eighteen but it's revenue was about two point two billion. It's market share is growing. Its biggest investor is Japanese ecommerce company rack you ten which owns thirteen percent General Motors and alphabets which is the parent of self driving car company. Waymo both have smaller stakes and both have a specific interest in the transportation data that lift collects Susan's Shaheen is at the transportation sustainability research center, juicy Buckley. List and others are moving into this space mobility services investors, about those services like bikes scooters and a platform for Sharon 'cause could help prepare any decline in private vehicle sales lift is beaten. It's bigger, right. Hail rival Yuba to an IPO. But there's no big advantage to that says buyer Daniels at Deloitte, and Touche, I think people may be reading too much into this in that there's a technical component. When maybe it's just a friendly competition to see who can get out. I lift did school a good stock symbol on the NASDAQ L Y F T on Jack's Jew for marketplace. Don't underestimate a good ticker, by the way, one does wonder who has be are from the retail world. This item gap is going to spin off its successful budget brand old navy into a separate company testament. Not just old navy's growth, but also to gaps waning grip on the American retail market. This break-up is also going to force them decisions, including what to do with one very valuable. Asset customer data as marketplace's Eric embarrass reports. That could be tricky capital navy have yet to figure out just how they will deal with data collected on customers over the years. Here's gap CO, art, peck, speaking to investors yesterday, we do have customer over. Well, that's something that we're going to manage the file will be a property within a bowl companies that something we need to sort out because data on customers is one of the most important assets company has credit card numbers ages addresses. What we return what we look at on websites. But don't buy Trini Ahmed is with the center for customer insights at Yale. And especially for a company that has multiple brands to be able to leverage the data across the brands is very important. And even after the companies decide how or if they'll split up the data moving around information gathered over decades isn't simple says Jenny Gephardt with the eletronic frontier foundation. We kind of picture sometimes there's a folder somewhere that has my name on it. And you know, it has. My my address make credit card information, everything I've ever bought in clicked on that could be the case. It isn't even at one company all kinds of customer data are stored in all kinds of places and sometimes when there is an attempt to sort through all that information organize it and separate it making sure all your information goes over to capture all goes overall Davey or some goes to place or the other is very much is here, we have all these data points on a shelf, and it's stable. But indeed when we try to move them. That's when the furniture starts to fall apart gap, which declined to comment for the story. We'll have to sort all this out soon. The company is hoping the split will be completed next year. I'm Eric bears for marketplace. Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Brexit month. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is officially supposed to leave the European Union on the twenty ninth March officially being the operative word there. Because when that's what the vote was two and a half something years ago now right Prime Minister, Theresa may has been steadfast that Brexit is coming on the twenty ninth. Come what may, but she was forced to make a major concession to the remainder 's in her cabinet this week that could could because at this point who knows what this thing, but it could wind up postponing the UK's departure much to the exasperation of the Brexit tears as they're known. Marketplace's Stephen beard has been meeting with some of the Brexit bulls. This company Clevedon fos makes rivets thirty million of a month. You could say the ball Steve Haldeman is in the business of getting down to brass tacks. We might very basic sorted products. We take why are we hitting very hard? We make fasteners various kinds and he's equally blunt about his reasons for supporting Brexit. We have got a fantastic future on our own of gutting Numis about faith in Richie business and British manufacturing. And I've got no faith whatsoever. In you. Hardiman exports to thirty eight countries. He believes it would be even more written out of the EU and able to negotiate free trade agreements autumn and says he's awfully fed up with the parliamentary shaina guns. He'd now be happy for the UK to leave on March the twenty ninth without an exit deal. The great thing about no deal is the twenty ninth. It's done. No more arguments. No more fiddling about with parliaments to try and Skopje's it's done and since the EU has a massive trade surplus with Britain. He doesn't believe they'll be lasting paralysis and gridlock at the polls that will be disruption for about a week, and it will be sauteed within a week. Hundred miles south of rivet factory in the heart of London barrister Martin house, sits in the cloistered comb of his chambers and specis the same thuesday Hasim for new deal Brexit, once we leave if we leave without a deal on the Goshi teaching position vis-a-vis, the EU will be enormously strengthened how runs a pro Brexit campaign group lawyers for Britain, which on the face of it seems a little old since his practice involves a lot of e you cases, what is a specialist in e u law doing championing Brexit onto shooting yourself in the foot. No, I mean, the reason is because I knew say much about the way European operates the mole and more uphold yet he admits that without a deal he could lose access to the European Court and lose business, indeed, dozens of British lawyers have been registering with Irish legal bodies in order to keep their access. But how hasn't he remains totally committed to Brexit for the sake. He says of Britain. Democracy. The essential thing is to get control over our lows once again be opponent treatment proceed where we can chunk out. If we didn't like the lows upon we can Chuck out people responsible. Electric's factory eighty miles south of London, another Brexit Tia. Tony also sees Brexit as a bid for freedom and democracy and also has no fear of a new deal exit. You would rather have a no deal Brexit than a no Brexit atole. Yes. Unequivocally. Now, eight seventy eight bonnet built up his electric firm from nothing into a business employing, fifty people and exporting all over the world Brexit. He says will widen the horizons of British business entrepreneurs should not be afraid will with country in the post. We've been pretty adventurous. We need to bring some of that Aventure spirit back again. About he says the spirit emanating from parliament from big business and from the mainstream business organizations. Doesn't seem adventurous toll prevailing mood is fissile. In london. I'm Stephen beard for marketplace. Coming up. I mean, aren't magicians just like born with these abilities. Now, you see it. Now, you don't but first let's do the numbers. The Dow up one hundred ten today four tenths percent twenty six thousand and twenty six the NASDAQ up sixty points that's eight tenths percent. Seventy five ninety five P five hundred up nineteen points about six tenths percent. Twenty eight three four the week. The Dow basically flat the NASDAQ picked up nine tenths percent. Yes. P five hundred four tenths percent to the plus side gap climbed sixteen point one percent today at that old navy announcement that bears was telling us about gap. We'll be keeping a hold of banana Republic. Ralph Lauren, right, Loren Loren. Get it wrong. Every time you guys. Anyway, that company struck up one and four tenths percent day. Bonds fell yield on the ten year treasury note rose to two point seven six percent. You're listening to marketplace. This marketplace podcast is brought to you by Amazon web services.

Not that it's necessarily any of my business, but I didn't feel out there. Anyway, a little economically glum breaths. I asked because the good people at the Commerce Department told us this morning that consumer spending was down about six tenths percent in December. And consumer sentiment. Literally how you're feeling finished February at its second lowest level since the two thousand sixteen election. But here's the thing. Job market is strong inflation's under control wages are ticking up. So while the long faces we asked marketplace's Mitchell Hartman to figure that out when we saw this morning's data, we sent out an all points bulletin on social media asking how folks are feeling some of you wrote back that you're worried about jobs in spite of this statistically, strong job market stew. Mark is a project manager in his early fifties. Who's been looking for work for well over a year stock market is not the economy GDP, not the economy bad out. Here. His wife is looking for work too. And they live in a depressed area of southern New Jersey eating into the nest egg that we should have been not touching. We have to be tight fisted about everything. Others of you worried about rising prices in spite of low inflationary expectations Meghan McCray. Is Forty-five an attorney in Boston. She says she and other. She knows are struggling with housing and healthcare costs. I have a number of friends who are under having a job doesn't necessarily cover healthcare costs. And then there's the government shutdown. Chris fuller is thirty seven as a government contractor. He lost more than a month of income permanently actually had to put off a har- repair. Some of the home improvement projects scrap altogether. And fuller says even though he's back at work. He's keeping a tight rein on his spending. Especially with all of the rumors going around that there may be another recession on the horizon fuller says it doesn't help. Help that he's still shell shocked from the last recession ten years ago. I'm Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. I say magician, and you think what just a guy because it's usually a guy, right? Just a guy on a stage or something doing some kind of allusion. Oh, get with the twenty first century William because while yes press digitization is an ancient craft in this digital age. It has become a very modern business in fresh journalists who wrote about magic, and then became a practitioner his new book on the industry is called. Magic is dead. Welcome to the program much have me. So look far be it for me to quibble with an author about the title of his book, but magic is dead based on my reading this book seems not to be right, right? Is just is very much alive, but different than I think what a lot of people think it is. Yeah. Maybe the magic world you new to this is is quite dead, or at least transformed quite dramatically for a long time. You know, magic kind of operated like a monarchy. You know, if you're coming up in the scene, you still had gatekeepers kings to impress people. To kind of assure you up to the you know to to the top, you know, to these upper echelons, but now with social media with the internet with the accessibility of information. It's kind of transformed into a democracy, you know, people have their own voice, and they have control over their own image of what you are a good example. Right. Because you did not grow up as kids ain't wanna be magician. Right. No, definitely not never had a kiddie. Magic set. My mother was a poker player growing up. So we had a little bit of deception our blood that way, but I really wasn't into magic until two thousand fifteen when I stumbled upon Chris Ramsey who's a main character my book on Instagram, and I'm looking at this guy, he had a YouTube channel as well. And I'm I'm checking them out. I'm like this dude does not look like a magician. You know, he's wearing like the latest street wear and you had like a beard in a backwards hat and all these tattoos the current crop of young magicians, they're not only progressing the craft. But also the brand of magician, which is what got me. The story in the first place. Really? Yeah. Well, we'll get the how you got into it in a second. But I do wanna talk about how magicians today, and you are net you have become now. One of them are one of you. I suppose you gotta work at it. Right. It's social media. It's individual branding. It's all of that stuff. That is in a way part of the digital age for really old old craft. Right. You know to step back and kind of give a sense about how this all works is at magicians for a very long time. They had kind of shared secrets, you know, behind the scenes through self published books or just by word of mouth, you know. But once the internet came into play as a tool of they could use you had an explosion of of entrepreneurship people started developing online retail stores where you could develop magic tricks and then sell them, and that's where I came into it in terms of creating in effect and selling it in in the lingo of of industry, right? You guys went from a BB enterprise business to business enterprise to a business to consumer enterprise. I mean, you invented a trick. And you you. You have a YouTube trailer for it for crying out loud. Yeah. It's it's quite interesting. You know, in the whole setup of this, you know, because I've reported on business, you know, as a as a working journalist, and I was really interested in how all these young magicians were not only using social media and the internet to kind of just put themselves out there. But they were creating these systems where these magic tricks or their new takes on on perhaps older effects could be disseminated in discovered by people who are maybe just getting into magic. There's there's dozens of websites where everyday normal people can go online, and you know, paid ten fifteen twenty bucks, Lauren. Do magic tricks which democratize it. And that I I suppose is good for y'all because it gets you out there. And it gets you new market as it were. But the okay ready. Do you worry about losing the magic of magic? No. Because I think the magic of magic is people continuing to dig into it. It from a practitioner's perspective. You know, you can go online, and you can use YouTube and learn, you know, I think magicians, although they guard their secrets they they really enjoy when people get into magic. And I think that's why I was accepted into this world because I showed such an intense and earnest curiosity for how this all works. I mean, art magicians, just like born with these abilities. And that's not really the case, you know, as you can tell from my my journey in this kind of underground subculture. It's it's a fascinating book. It's called magic is dead. And spoiler alert. It's really not the book is about you in fresh, in fact, slot really, no problem. Thanks for having me. You can check out that trailer for the magic tricks that invented and sold. Also read about ways magicians make money today. It's all marketplace dot org. Final note on the way out today in which American consumers think push-button shopping is too hard. I guess your member those dash buttons from a couple years ago Amazon dash buttons that you thought maybe we're joke literally little buttons you could put on your washing machine.

One device included additional devices. Five dollars a month. Well hello what's going on everybody. I'm trevor noah and this is the daily social distancing show today is monday may third which means it is officially now teacher appreciation week so because of that i wanted to take a moment to personally thank the teacher who changed my life professor charles xavier school. I was just a lost cocky young kid but i'll never forget what he taught me. Trevor you're not an ex-man getting nose. Bleeds is not a superpower. And i still remember that lesson to this day. Love you proof anyway coming up tonight show why diamonds are now our guys best friend. Where would union tells us about the black royals. You've never heard of and facebook and apple are fighting over your search history. So let's do this people. Welcome to the daily social distancing show from trevor couch in new york city. Your couch somewhere in the world. This is the daily social distancing show with trevor noah. Here's people let's kick it off with the corona virus pandemic. It's the reason your grandma keeps saying you filled out whenever she hugs you. Ever since the vaccine came out americans have been looking forward to the day when the country will achieve herd immunity which is when a diseased is out because enough of the population has either been vaccinated or previously infected. All colbert just doesn't feel safe around. But now it seems like people are going to have to wait a lot longer than they thought the fight against covert nineteen. This is headlined. No one wants to see. Quote reaching herd. Immunity is unlikely in the united states. Experts now believe when biologists even telling the new york times. The virus is unlikely to go away. Vaccine hesitancy remains a very real issue threatening the country's chances at achieving herd immunity scientists believe the virus will quote likely become a manageable threat. That will continue to circulate in the united states for years to come so causing hospitalizations and deaths but in much smaller numbers. I you know honestly in these divided times. It's just great to see all americans coming together to fail at something so easily achievable but yeah thanks for the many people who refuse to take lifesaving vaccine experts now think that corona virus is basically going to become one of those antivirus pop ups. You know we're going to minimize it but we'll never really delete it and let me just say this if you can't get vaccinated but you haven't yet well. This should be only incense and you need. Because you don't want to begin corona ten years from now i mean. Think about not only. Could you die but you'll getting roasted for being dates. Oh my god you got covid. That's so cheeky. Everyone's dying from snake flu now and yes. This is the fault of taxes but one thing. That definitely isn't helping is the media. Because i don't know if you've noticed the media loves running stories about the few people who are having adverse reactions to the vaccine all manned gonna vaccine now. His footage saw all woman vaccine. She forgot. it's thursday because even though those cases are a tiny minority those of the stories that people wanna hear the most right. Local news isn't running stories. About how all the people with no side effects are having a fine time because let's be honest that news just wouldn sell. Thank you pam breaking news. I am outside the house of a man who received the vaccine earlier this week and is completely fine right now. He is in that room eating dinner with his family and by all looks like he's seen me. I'm going to have to leave now. But even without herd immunity society is bound to start reopening so over in the uk researches trying to figure out what kind of events people can go to without causing the virus to stop spreading out of control again and the way they are trying to figure it out just maybe the greatest science experiment of all time live. Music is starting to make a comeback as a way to track krona virus progress. The english city of liverpool hosted a one off music festival yesterday to test whether such events spread the virus about five thousand people ditched face coverings and social distancing rules to attend outdoor event. And they just had to test negative for covert i and agree to follow up. Tests and five days data from the festival will be used by the governments of research program to help understand the effects of crowds on the spread of the virus. And the festival's organizers says. He hopes the project will help get outdoor events back on the calendar this year all year a concert. That's my kind of medical experiment of louis. Pasteur in bullshit with a dog. The best part of it is no one court covert but sadly one hundred people did. Come down with indian. But that's right. Thousands of people showed up to a concert and the purpose was to see see if they would catch covert which must be honest. Doesn't seem like a real idea right. That seems like some are ruled that happened. You can get it right fire and if you ask me i think an experimental concert is a great idea. Not just for covert. I mean you can test for all sorts of things you can test for the effect of constantly dropping. The beats can finally find out. Does that hurt. The beat can the be even feel pain and will the beat be able to go on. One of the most here is how many volunteers they got to submit to medical experimentation. Just because they wanted to see a concert. I mean you realize this means. They could ramp up experimental on everything just based on. Who's performing can we. Please take your kidneys. We need to test something. What no we'll give you tickets to be on say. Oh my god take them both. Toby answer their mind telling their my kidneys. Maybe she'll say about the and finally if you dream of someday settling down and marrying the person of your dreams. Well first of all congratulations on being basic and second. If you're part of a street couple all the bill for engagement rings just doubled if you like him. Then maybe you should put a ring on it. Yeah tiffany is introducing. Its first men's engagement ring this spring. That charles tiffany setting is what it's called if features a bold solitaire. Diamond and round brilliant and emerald cut up to five carrots and that ring is named after the company's founder. Charles lewis tiffany the setting honors the jewelers legacy in love and inclusivity. They say oh guys. This is amazing. Trying to double your profits and positive as inclusivity. Capitalism is so beautiful but this is a huge moment for equality because now men finally have something to bring to the pawnshop. when they're fiance has sex with their platonic best friend. I nothing to worry about. And i also think this could be a win for everyone. I mean women get diamond rings now. Men also get diamond rings and the children who have to mind twice as many diamonds. They paid overtime. They don't get paid. But then how do they keep getting so i look. I don't think it's going to be easy to convince meant where diamond ring. But based on the ad campaign the tiffany is rolling out there definitely giving it their best shots. Are you ready to tell the world you've found love mike. Introducing the new tiffany's men's engagement ring a bad ass timing in a style that tells the world. I'm boning one person for the rest of my life. Plus it'll hurt more when you put someone within off so papa colin with your buddies and then head over to tiffany's to get a ring just like you won the super bowl bomb tiffany's ms engagement ring also comes in cammo but let's move on now to our main story. Iphones the reason you haven't made eye contact since two thousand and eight last week. Apple dropped the latest updates to their iphone operating system and it has all sorts of new features. You know you can now use the phone with a video game controller. You can design your own app. Icons and there are four new voice auctions for siri including two black voices which means millions of people are about to have their first black fringe so exciting but the big update. But everyone's talking about has to do with privacy and it's the subject of our latest episode of if you don't know now you know what is one of the biggest concerns. People have about modern technology privacy. Right because i'll phones know everything about us. What music we listen to. How much sleep. We get what i'll face looks like when we're pooping but now apple is going to give you a little more control over. How widely that information is shared. You know how it goes. You search for something online. Then seen ads on facebook or instagram. For that exact item. Well apple is making it harder for apps to track your online activity. When you're using apps on your iphone you may start to see this apple users must now give permission for apps to track your online activity data before you could only opt out. It's about time jenny. Gephardt is with the privacy nonprofit the electronic frontier foundation searching from opt out to opt in huge that is to really make a lot more users opt out of this tracking feature of it wasn't built for users. it was built for advertisers. That's why people with the new iowa's you have to opt in to being tracked online instead of having to opt out. And i know it might seem like a small change but this is a huge deal because people are lazy as shit like think about it. If apple said that they were going to put all your news online unless you opted out you'd probably be like what ways well was that opt-out option settings general. Where i you know what. I'm proud of my third and belichick do this. I don't care anymore. I got things to do and people don't understand how much information facebook is actually getting from your other apps like you think it's a small thing you know how you like your friends. Oh i was talking about something and then it popped up. Is my phone listening to me. No it's the apps like if you're in atlanta and you check the weather in vermont in won't wait for you to search for a winter coat before it starts showing you add one and if you've been ordering pizza every night on grubhub won't then the ads will show you a coach. That's two sizes up because it knows so. This new privacy feature is good news for iphone uses but it turns out. It's very bad news for one of apple's biggest rivals facebook in fact. It's so bad for them that they've started throwing up pop-ups begging everyone to let them keep tracking us and warning us that if we don't facebook might stop being free of charge and i'm not gonna lie. People let seems like an empty threat to me because who would pay to be on facebook with the type of people willing to pay to be on facebook. I mean that's i give a crack house at a cover charge actually wouldn't mind a facebook started charging people because i think if they did maybe people would actually think for a second. Before they posted the government puts fluoride in the water to brainwash us coast two dollars. Keep it to myself now. The reason facebook needs to track its users so that can charge big bucks to advertise. Who want to target very specific audiences. But zac knows that people don't care if he can't afford to give his hovercraft lamborghini for its birthday so instead he's asking you to think about the poor companies that will suffer if he contract you. Facebook said apple's move will harm their small business. Advertisers gonna kill us. Got kill us. But for monique wilson. Deborah know who was featured in a facebook campaign and owns charleston gourmet burger. The change has already affected sales and she's had to cut costs. It's not bow. Small businesses wanting to take away anyone's privacy always wanted to really to service our customers better so someone loves. Hamburgers are looking for something. That is just awesome to nigger hamburger case bear. I would like to show my ed to you and this update takes away in small businesses. Like okay now. This is interesting. I mean i don't like getting tracked but it is true that it does help some small businesses target. They ads you know and the truth is in life bad. Things can't have good side effects. You know it's like how serial killers are bad. We all agree that the bed but you do get a lot of really interesting. Point cost them. Yeah no so. I can't see what. Facebook is trying to argue here saying. Do you really want to hurt. Small businesses before amazon has a chance to bankrupt them and honestly i wouldn't mind targeted ads that much but the thing is it's how it is how facebook tracks all of us that i don't like like it will be one thing if facebook ost me. Hey trevor. do you like hamburgers. We're going to say stuff about food. But what facebook actually does is basically just sent some guiding gary just stalk my entire life. Hey traver. I heard you like hamburgers. What how did you know that he he he he. I read an email. You send to your girlfriend so maybe you're still not swayed by the effect of this change on small businesses and that's why facebook is also warning of the bleak future that awaits all of us. If they can't track our every movement anymore facebook's pushing back it relies on that data to target consumers with relevant ads. So people do opt out. Here's what facebook says could happen. Say young man is looking for new pair of sneakers on his phone. Facebook claims that with apple's new rules. It won't be able to use his search history information about what other apps he uses to show him ads for things. He wants to buy so on facebook or instagram. He could end up seeing ads for women's clothing. Our furniture really. This is a real argument. Come on the guy's we've lived our entire lives watching untargeted ads on tv ads. Newspaper ads billboards none of those were targeted. And we were fine right now all of a sudden they making. It seem like we can't live without them. We're gonna be new. Who have to watch untargeted edge. But how will. I know if a product isn't for me. Would if. I buy tampons because i didn't know that i don't have appeared. What if i buy dog food. But i don't have a dog and my dog and my dog one temp on. I don't know we can handle on targeted ads. In fact sometimes i'm targeted ads. Introduce you to things that you never knew you needed. Yeah like a shower seats. I didn't think about that before. I came to america. And then now. That i'm here realize just because i'm not. At doesn't mean conga clean and comfortable and on top of all that facebook makes it seem they make it seem like all they use that data for is to sell us the products that we want. But don't forget that the reason you often only see posts that make you mad as hell is because of all the time. Facebook is tracking you and they used that targeting to piss you off. It's not a coincidence. That facebook is always telling you that joe biden is going to make the bible spanish only you. That trump stole all the mailbox to give to kim jong un. It's because they know how to keep you engaged for as long as possible. And they know this by tracking you and again. I'm not pro apple here right. But apple didn't build their entire business model stoking you. Facebook did and if moving society away from tracking people. The gary has to find a new job. Then you know what so be it. My dad draft. Who will recommend creams for your toenail. Fungus get the data here. Gary all right when we come back roy.

We turn out roy junior in another edition of seep time. will hello welcome to c. p. time the only show the full culture today. We'll be discussing the history of black royalty because it's not just megan markle that she got married to ed sheeran. History is full of black kings and queens. That never got the chance to sit down with oprah for example shocker zulu. He was the founder of the zulu empire in the leader of one of the fighting forces in african history. He also had to flies name of all time. Shock zulu get chills. Just seeing it half the reason people follow them. Because of that name shop zulu been named. Herman carruthers safe to say that would be no empire. Chocolate transformed zulu tribe from one of the smallest clans in the region to a mighty kingdom. And he did it all without wearing a shirt. You have to be a leader to do that. Prince charles trot ruling. Without a shirt the monarchy would be over by the end of the day king. Shock was eventually killed by his two brothers. Those closest to them. That's why void family reunions brothers might try to take me out so they can get control of my travel spoon collection. Back off roy. These bones mind moving on queen thousand. She started with a small regional power and soon conquered all the surrounding areas was basically a dunkin donut. Just took the whole police over. Although she never married queen ana did have the complicated love. Life taken loves in every city she conquered and then killing them yet for some reason men still to sleep with her even though they knew it would be fatal. We are truly the dumbest gender. Never trust a big business mile. Next we move onto nineteen forties ethiopia and its ruler. Emperor holland selassie will his official title his imperial majesty holly selassie the first conquering lion of the tribe of judah king of kings and elect of god. Somebody's important when the name is the resume. I'd be roy. Wood junior bachelor arts subscribe of net flicks and second string of the crown heights. Ymca over sixty basketball league. The first now selassie wasn't just the emperor of ethiopia he was also regarded as the besigye of all black people by rastafarians. You know you have influence when as an entire religion built around you. The only other black person to accomplish that was jesus. Don't argue with me about jesus race. I know jesus was black. The court found him guilty with no evidence. Selassie went on to institute major reforms to ethiopian society. Let creating the first written constitution of ethiopia. He outlawed slavery us right. Slavery still existed in the twentieth century. That's why you gotta read that travel journal. Before taking a vacation. I went on a discount cruise to unmet island one time and ended up a small island woman's indentured servant for six months safe to say i left a strongly worded yet review for that cruise. Never trust a big button a smile without all the time we have for today. I'm roy wood junior and this has been cpt and remember for the culture. Leroy spools the only thing. I keep on the at night.

Feel great. you're going to the first couple days you're gonna show death but then after that you're gonna feel great you're gonna feel good gonna look even better which is hard to do this stuff about the movie. Tom clancy man any what anybody who loved the books. Anybody who's love the game. I mean i grew up playing rainbow six. You this movie was. I watched it with my brother and he was just like he was like man. This is amazing. He was like this is so much fun. I haven't seen an action movie like this in a long time. Why did you choose to do it. And what made you think you know what i can make this something special. You know first of all thank you appreciate. The glad guys enjoyed it. You know but just like you. I was at home as a kid playing rainbow six video game for hours. And you know my mom would yell at me. Each boy get off that damn game. You know it was like you know and i would be in their envisioning myself like in these missions so i had opportunity to take you know you know a tom. Clancy favourite like. John kelly and give it a breath of fresh air modernizing infliction of the world that we live in today. I mean these type of movies. The things that i grew up watching. I love like action movies. You know so. I was like one day. I wanna do my own action movie. And i'm gonna do my own stunts and this was the one me to check that box with like it was actual navy seal training that you went through full this movie right. Yeah i worked with ex. Military ex-navy says ex marines of military divers for a lot of the work that we had to do really every stunt that you saw a specialist that i spent enough time. Get comfortable with the within the stunt. They went out and executed one of the most terrifying stunts in the movie. And i won't spoil it for the people. Involves you in the ocean underwater in in a vessel. I won't tell people what vessel it is. Don't spoil anything but like you just use underwater block. The camera doesn't cut as well. That's something i noticed. Just follow you holding your breath. Swimming underwater swimming underwater. And i and i was like. No michael didn't do this but you. You actually did that. Yeah those that was the one that you know. It took us about a week and a half to shoot. And every day i would get up in our get set and i would be like who wrote this widely. We decide to do this. It was my favorite thing and then it was my least favorite. Like i mean i hate it and then i fell in love with all over again once. We finished it just because we accomplished it and we got you know so i mean it was. It was very ambitious. But it was something that i had to do because definitely one to shoot it in a way that you knew it was doing those stunts. So yeah it was something. I have the trainer really hard for what i loved about the story. And you not talk to your idea of modernizing the thing is you know. I know tom clancy's novels. Well i've read the books. I've played the games. You know what. I loved about the film as well as it. May you think about this from the perspective of the military personnel. Who go out there. And i'm fighting for my country only to find out and we've seen that with with nine eleven or whatever in america where they go like. Oh this is this is false pretenses but this is actually my life. You always been somebody who's who's been passionate about. You know telling military personnel stories or connecting with them as human beings. That part of the story seemed really important to you. And i'd love to know what you were hoping to achieve in telling that part of the story. I think just that you know the honesty of wits would. It's light from the soldiers perspective. Who has a family who has things that they care about. you know. Obviously the dedicated to assert a tool to a service to to to a country in order to protect the oath. You know what i'm saying to to To uphold those values but when that when that comes home and and and and you feel betrayed you know and and you've been lied to on so many different levels you know. How far would a man go to get those answers you know. I think we felt like this. At one point we feel so small we feel like we one person what what is my opinion or what is what can you possibly change this. Bigger thing big elephant. That's in a room. This bigger system and i think john felt like that majority of the movie until he started to really feel like no. I'm i'm i'm taking the power back. I actually can make a difference. I can't they're going to see me. They're gonna feel me. I mean they're going to feel like they messed up. And i think you know just getting people to think a little bit and to you know obviously be entertained and have fun watching this movie but at the same time to start asking questions. You gotta medicine food. Sometimes you had to put a little sugar with the medicine in this is a coup vehicle to have one but also to To think to gamma. I think part of what helps the people think in the story is who the storyteller i mean. You're amazing you you you have fans all over the world because of that but you have to admit man you'll cost was phenomenal in this film but let's talk a little bit about george. China smith people fell in love with her in queen slim. She's back again in. This film was also amazing. Is seeing a woman and not just the one but a black woman assuming a high position not just in the film but in the story as well like there was some beautiful scenes where it wasn't like. Oh you know. The guy is going to help her. It's like no she's a soldier. She had a fight. She's doing her thing. That felt like an interesting way to tell the story in a way that we haven't really seen growing up as you know like when we watch movies action let's be honest it was like rambo helps the damsel in distress all the time and then he was like no everybody. Here's a soldier everybody's fighting and those are the ones that liberties that we did. Take first black female commander. You know what i'm saying. In the navy navy navy seals was something that we that we definitely made a choice with. It was a scene in there where you know. We're a gun jammed okay. Straight spoiler alert. A moment in there were. John goes to try to rescue and save. You know greer and by time i get there it's already neutralized and handle it. It was it was. Yeah and it was really good to see that man. And i thank you. Know what representation does is so is so important and we want that to inspire So many younger out there that that may be thought that that wasn't possible. Not for them that they can go ahead and try to get that to. Michael jordan is now a movie. Mak- movie producer. You've got a mega deal with amazon. You're going to be creating content. You helping others create content. You are a superstar in every single rights. I mean twenty twenty store. You voted as people magazine's sexiest man alive. Does life go from here for for michael jordan. Like what what what what are you. What are your goals. Now when he wanted downhill from you. Let's be honest when you it's all downhill from here. I mean why. Not try my hand at directing. I think that's kind of like exciting. The next challenge is get behind the camera and tell the story And like crete threes the perfect vehicle for myself.

What is one of the biggest concerns. People have about modern technology privacy right because our phones know everything about us what music we listen to. How much sleep. We get what i'll face looks like when we're pooping but now apple is going to give you a little more control over how widely that information is shared. You know how it goes. You search for something online then seeing ads on facebook or instagram. For that exact item. Well apple is making it harder for apps to track your online activity. When you're using apps on your iphone you may start to see this users must now give permission for apps to track your online activity data before you could only opt out. It's about time jenny. Gephardt is with the privacy nonprofit. The electronic frontier foundation searching from down to opt in is huge. That is going to really make a lot. More users opt out of this tracking feature but it wasn't built for users. It was built for advertisers. That's right people with the new updates. You have to opt in to being tracked online instead of having to opt out and i know it might seem like a small change but this is a huge deal because people are lazy as shit like think about if apple said that they were gonna put all your news online unless you opted out. You'd probably be like what ways. Well where's that opt-out option settings general. Where i you know what. I'm proud of my belichick do this. I don't care anymore. i got things to do. And people don't understand how much inflammation facebook is actually getting from other apps like you think it's a small thing you know how you want your friends. Oh i was talking about something and then it popped up. Is my phone listening to me. No it's the apps like if you're in atlanta and you the weather in vermont in won't wait for you to search for a winter coat before it starts showing ads for one and if you've been ordering pizza every night on grubhub. The ads will show you a coach. That's true sizes up because it knows so. This new privacy feature is good news for iphone uses but it turns out. It's very bad news for one of apple's biggest rivals facebook in fact. It's so bad for them that they've started throwing up pop-ups begging everyone to let them keep tracking us and warning us that if we don't facebook might stop being free of charge and i'm not gonna lie less. Seems like an empty threat to me because who would pay to be on facebook with the type of people willing to pay to be on facebook. That's like if a crack house cover charge actually wouldn't mind a facebook started charging people because i think if they did maybe people would actually think for second before they posted. The government puts fluoride in the water to brainwash us coast two dollars. Keep it to myself now. The reason facebook needs to track. Its uses so that it can charge big bucks to advertise. Who wants to target very specific audiences but mark zuckerberg knows that people don't care if he can't afford to give his hovercraft beginning for its birthday so instead he's asking you to think about the poor companies that will suffer if he contract you facebook. Said apple's move will harm their small business. Advertisers it's gonna kill us is going to kill us but for monique wilson. Deb riano who was featured in a facebook campaign and owns charleston gourmet burger. The change has already affected sales and she's had to cut costs. It's not a bow small businesses. Wanting to take away anyone's privacy always wanted to really service our customers that are so someone loves hamburgers are looking for something. That is just awesome to your hamburgers case bear. I would like to show my add to you. And this update takes that away or small businesses like y. Okay now this is interesting. I mean i don't like getting tracked but it is true that does help some small businesses. Talk talking the ads you know and the truth is in life bad. Things can't have good side effects. You know it's like how serial killers of bad. We all agree that their bed. But you do get a lot of really interesting. Cost out of them. Yeah no so. I see what facebook is trying to argue here. They're saying. Do you really want to hurt. Small businesses before amazon has a chance to bankrupt them and honestly i wouldn't mind targeted ads that much but the thing is it's how it is how facebook tracks all of that. I don't like like we want facebook austin me. Hey trevor. do you like hamburgers. We're going to show you stuff about food. But what facebook actually does is basically send some guiding gary just stalk my entire life. Hey trevor i heard you like hamburgers. What how did you know that he he he he he. I read an email. You send to your girlfriend. So maybe you're still not swayed by the effect of this change on small businesses. And that's why facebook is also warning of the bleak future that awaits all of us. If they can't track our every movement anymore facebook's pushing back it relies on that data to target consumers with relevant ads. So people do opt out. Here's would facebook says could happen. Say young man is looking for new pair of sneakers on his phone. Facebook claims that with apple's new rules. It won't be able to use his search history information about what other apps he uses to show him ads for things. He wants to buy so on facebook or instagram. He could end up seeing ads for women's clothing. Our furniture railway logging on on the guys we've lived our entire lives watching untargeted ads right. Tv ads newspaper ads. Billboards none of those were targeted. And we fine right now. All of a sudden they making. It seem like we can't live without them like we're going to be like oh new. Who knew and to which untargeted edge. But how will i. If a product isn't for me would five by. Because i didn't know that i don't have a period. What if i buy dog food. But i don't have a dog and my dog and my dog won't temp on. I know we can handle targeted ads. In fact sometimes i'm targeted ads. Introduce you to things that you never knew you needed. Yeah like a shower seats. I didn't think about that before. I came to america. And then now. That i'm here realize just because i'm not eighteen doesn't mean a get clean and comfortable and on top of all that facebook makes it seem they make it seem like all the use that data for is to sell us the products that we want. But don't forget that the reason you often only see posts that make you mad as hell is because of all the time. Facebook is tracking you and they used that targeting to piss you off. It's not a coincidence. That facebook is telling you that joe biden is going to make the bible spanish only or that trump stole all the mailboxes to give to kim jong un. It's because they know how to keep you engaged for as long as possible. And they know this by tracking you and again. I'm not pro apple here right. But apple didn't build their entire business model on stoking you. Facebook did and if moving society away from tracking people means that. Gary has to find a new job. Then so be it. Might dad dr. Who will recommend creams for your toenail. Fungus get the data here. Gary unfortunately due to the pandemic a lot of people are doing worse than ever because it turns out that the technology keeping us connected is also making us feel like shit with the stress of the pandemic image issues have been on the rise. Forty three percent of women to six percent of men said covert nineteen negatively affected. How attractive the countless hours spent on zoom or video calls is causing more and more americans to be insecure about their parents videoconferencing presents. A constant unedited unfiltered look at ourselves. That can be unsettling and those front facing cameras were all using. Aren't doing us any favors. Things like the knows could actually appear larger and wider and the is could appear staller not only as a person confronting her own reflection with much greater intensity and frequency than they ever had before but they were staring at a distorted reflection. This is all part of an alarming new trend coined zoom dismore via zoom dismore. 'fear it's when you realize that it's not just everyone else who looks terrible zoo and that's really not cool. You know. zoom shouldn't make you feel bad about your looks. It should make feel bad about your duty as living but you have to remember people. This is a new phenomenon that we're dealing with humans didn't evolve to see their own faces all the time. That's not normal except with twins. I guess they don't count the freaks another one of you. What's like think about it for most of human history. If you want to know what you looked like you had to get your friend smash up some blueberry and rub on the cave wall you look like this damn. Do i really hold a spear like that now. The good news is that it's likely we'll be using zoom a lot less in the near future but unfortunately there's another technology that also makes us feel bad about ourselves and it doesn't look like it's going away anytime soon. I'm talking about photo filters yes. They've helped mankind realizes dream of puking rainbows. But some of the most popular filters just help you look more attractive which may sound harmless but it could be anything such cutting edge apps and social media filters or allowing ordinary people to enhance their online photos to impossible perfection. In some cases it's sparking concerning phenomena with apps like face tune you have the power to completely transform yourself. Bigger eyes skinnier nose and jaw line smaller but or flatter belly. Whiter teeth smoother. Skin you can do it right on your phone. When i take a selfie i always use filters i wish i could look like my filter himself in this obsession with personal appearance that selfie culture encourages may have darker implementation's for mental a study in the journal of the american medical association says filtered pictures can take a toll on self esteem body image and even lead to body dismore fake disorder. I feel like we're losing touch with reality. Looks like we're already getting there to the point where we're expecting people to look as human as possible. Yeah photo editing filters set unrealistic expectations for beauty. The same way foot. Ninja sets up unrealistic expectations. Of how easy it is to slice floating route and once you have this full version of yourself in your head you become dissatisfied with what you really look like. So in essence. We're basically cat fishing ourselves. But if these editing apps can turn adults into quivering blobs of insecurity just imagine what they're doing to kids. Psychologists worn these photo filters can be particularly troubling for teens and young people who are still developing their sense of self eighty percent of girls in one survey say they compare the way they look to other people on social media. Sound like people like kendall jenner and kylie jenner. The all have this time measure like that. Everyone is expecting from this generation. Young girls on social media have a negative body perception with one in seven girls reporting being unhappy with the way they look at the end of elementary school and that number almost doubling to nearly one in three by age fourteen. Eighty percent of young girls are using photo. Retouching naps to change the way they look before hosting pictures and those with high scores for manipulating their photos were associated with high scores for body related and eating concerns. You any of you ever questioned your body because of what you see on social media shame man. This is a vicious cycle for teenagers. Social media makes them unhappy with how they look so then they useful tools which perpetuate the unrealistic expectations for themselves and others. Plus the teenagers. So they're doing all of this while they're driving which puts everyone at risk and all. The insecurity creates harmful for teenagers. Because i know it's hard to choose all of this out but teens shouldn't be obsessing over the stuff like i honestly wish i could sit all teenagers down. And say hey. Don't worry about how you look the plans going to die out before you're thirty. It doesn't matter now. It's bad enough when people wish they had the perfect instagram. Look in real life. What's worse is when they actually tried to make it happen. The more people look at dr up images the more likely they are to actually start seeking out cosmetic procedures at younger ages. These cosmetic procedures are becoming so popular with teens plastic surgeons have coined a new syndrome for it snapchat this moorefield and the number of kids getting nip tuck may astound you in two thousand seventeen. Nearly two hundred and thirty thousand teens had cosmetic procedures to kids as young as thirteen are getting them. Doctors seeing an influx of people of all ages turning to plastic surgery to look more like their filter. Sixty two percent of plastic surgeons reported their patients wanted to go under the knife because of dissatisfaction with their social media profile fifty seven percent said their patients wanted to look better in selfie. Becoming more and more common with people will show me images their instagram. Or even something that. I it on facebook. Hang on this is really wanna look just last week. I had a patient come in. Ask me for more of an anime. I and couldn't figure out why it's not possible. Okay man this is really disturbing. Thirteen year olds in particular should not be getting plastic surgery. I mean when you thirteen you'll. Physical appearance is already naturally changing faces long term plastic surgery. I mean this is what. I looked like when i was thirteen. You gotta let that should play out honestly. though. I don't blame the teenagers. I blame the parents and the plastic surgeons. I mean how are you going to let them do to themselves. They can't even buy cigarettes. But you're gonna let them by a new face candy this getting out of hand which is why is now a movement not just against filters but all the ways that people have been distorting reality all social media. Many influencers have started speaking up on this issue. Admitting that they've presented altered images in the past and are opening up the conversation summer even posting raw totally unedited photos of themselves and breaking down. How people on your instagram feet may be manipulating their angles and lighting to get that quote unquote perfect selfie. There are many celebrities exposing the dangers. Of digital's distortion. They are posting images of themselves unedited unfiltered online and this is a great example. To young girls popstar. Lizotte made a big splash when she posted a selfie in the nude and unreal touched. There's no shame anymore. And i just kind of post myself. It's like you take me as i am. You're going to have to love me. Partic- mp luke. Evans has proposed the digitally altered body. Image bill which would require advertisers and publishers to display a logo. Whenever a person's face body has been digitally enhanced. Okay first of all. I love the idea of putting disclaimers on photos of people who have been digitally altered. I love it and honestly. I don't think we should stop there. We need to do everything. That's been digitally all like food ads. The worst every food burger looks great on tv. But then when i order it looks like fell asleep in a hot tub. But i'm glad that we're finally learning the truth about what celebrities look like no personally. I'm waiting for spongebob to join this movement. I mean no way that guy's that square naturally if you've seen not real tv show now. I'm not naive enough to think that society is gonna stop creating unrealistic beauty standards anytime soon. All right what i do. Hope is that we can bennett. Educate our kids and ourselves that our own natural bodies of beautiful except for that flap of old people skin we have no elbows. Shit is gross. I don't care who you are. It looks like a mid on both sec. But everything else is beautiful gates. He's rich he's brilliant and apparently he's out of his mind. This is a container of human feces. Why is one of the richest men in the world carrying john his own ship. I went to seattle to find out. What's wrong with bill gates mr gates. It's a huge on. Admit you just a quick question. What is wrong. I mean are you okay. Yeah great love what i'm doing. Okay so why are you carrying around your own poop in job. Why did have a beaker of human feces when i was explaining why we need a reinvented toilet. You don't need to remain a we shit and then we push a button. Then she disappears perfect. Well toilets or something. We take for granted but billions of people. Don't have them even in these growing cities in poor countries. They can't afford to build sewers and caused diseases. And so we have to come up with a very different way of taking care of that waste. And because so much of the world lacks a sanitary place to poo. Bill launched the reinvent the toilet. Challenge it fun scientist to redesign toilets. That don't need a sewer system. We put seven hundred million into this to show that it can be done which saw hanging on you put several hundred million dollars into toilets giving it away you bet. Oh my god is. Bill gates crushing his fortune. Down the toilet to find out. I flew all the way to university of south florida where professor daniel and his team are using gates funding to make some sort of magic poop box. So what we have here Essentially as a miniature version of the wastewater treatment plant and we can put this anywhere in the world in the reactor. We have microorganisms. Stay eat the poop and turned into clean water. Okay why do the microbes the to microbes to prove. Because that's what they do. You ask if they wanna do that well. Why don't you give him a muffin or something. They need like a muffin. Okay i'll make a note of that but When you showed them to prove they love it despite his crazy talk. This is something about this guy. I don't know what it is. But i trust him so i decided to give his machine a try so normally we will have a block of toilets and the Waste from the toilets. Here go into the machine and then using solar power we can turn the poopie water into clean water. So you stand by this or approve it. Okay well how many times did not work and you ended up. Drinking ship was worked so well that we're actually working with. Nasa astronauts have to poop and we can turn that poop into clean water and nutrients and even energy. Would you say energia the microbes in the reactor make methane. That's the same stuff. That's a natural gas burner. Bill gates you sneaky baston. You just found a filthy little backdoor into the most profitable industry in the world energy unicef anything about energy yeah to one way to make it cheap to process. The sewage is to sell these. Outputs should open with that next time. The open with the saving the world kids and disease the open with your one making toilets that can convert shit into energy. We need to make these toilets as expensive as possible because based on my research everyone poops everybody less. We make them super cheap. They're not going to get out to the poorest. Who need them. The most look. I know you've made your money. Some of us here are still trying to win this game. Well you have an idea. A lot of snow. I've got nothing but ideas for this. Okay so this is an ipad. Great device i love using. It was the worst seat on a plane next to the toilet. But what if every seat was a toilet poop. Howard clings to keep the plane in motion. We have to keep shit high pressure. I know but it gives the airline's incentive for the numbers work. Talk about this. It's a toilet that you should and powers a canon that shoots the shit out through my neighbor's house while you laughing. It's not legal this man. I'm just trying to save the world you doing. that's what i'm doing. no. That's what i'm doing. I'm here giving my ideas or you're doing you're shitting on. Those ideas are ready yet but we do have a lot of ideas that are in the field being tested in durban. It's trying to cover the thirty percent of their residents. that don't have a great sewage processing. We are going to completely change the future. Everybody's gonna have great toilet well. Here's to everyone having a great toilet. Now guess where that came from shit. How's it taste. That's a very successful process there. It tasted like normal water. Good job thank you bill.

Equal housing lender licensed in all fifty states. Mls consumer access dot org number. Thirty thirty ransomware. It sounds like a fashion line for casual yet elegant kidnappers. But it's actually a big problem. That's only getting worse. Ransomware is a cyber attack in which hackers threatened to shut down networks or published private information unless paid a ransom department of homeland security estimates three hundred percent increase in such attacks in the past year alone with a cost of more than three hundred and fifty million dollars in ransoms ransomware in crypts of computer. Networks data to hold it hostage. And then we'll only give the digital decryption key to unlock it for a price. The average payment climbed from a few thousand dollars two twenty eighteen to more than two hundred thirty thousand dollars desperately cover their data. Some businesses have paid as much as nine hundred thirty. Five thousand dollars in ransom. They demand a ransom usually in bitcoin. A largely untraceable digital currency become such a frequent occurrence forty percent of companies in the uk with over two hundred and fifty. Employees are now stockpiling. Bitcoin in the event of an attack. Oh man this is terrible these hackers on just forcing people to pay money the forcing them to learn about bitcoin on. That's the real crime but at the same time it makes sense you know if your company gets hacked then you prepared and if you don't get hacked you can give bitcoin to your employees as christmas gifts. Happy holidays everyone. Go buy a hitman off the dark web. Yea but yes much like macho flavoring. Ransomware attacks went from something. You've never really heard of to being basically everywhere which makes sense because as the world gets more online there are more and more targets to choose from and it's not helping it's also really cheap and easy to police. scams off. Ransomware incident usually starts innocently enough. Maybe an interesting special promotion offer or an email disguised as coming from your boss but once you click on the link or download the file it can kick off a debilitating attack the barriers to entry to create ransomware. Really low hackers advertise. Do it yourself ransomware kits on the dark web. It's an incredibly detailed guide. That enables you to customize every aspect of the ransomware without ever really having to write any code yourself today. Almost anyone can get their hands on. Ransomware technology ransomware can be purchased on the deep web for as little as thirty nine dollars. Okay well that's crazy to me. You can buy ransomware for just thirty nine dollars. That's like nothing. I mean to be fair though. That's probably the version that has ads right like you can shut down america's energy infrastructure but every ten minutes you have to watch that stupid Commercial the hell is that gonna buy insurance. From an emu. A bite from a gecko facilitated like that and by the way. Am i the only one who feels that. Kinda ruins the drama of a ransomware attack. When you find out but all these guys are doing is basically just tricking someone inside the company into giving them access because like we think of hacking. What do you think of you think of the computer equivalent of tom. Cruise breaking into a building with diamond cutters and coming down from the ceiling. Wires and dodging the lasers. You know when reality. It's more like tom cruise. Just yelling at a security guard. Hey i'm yet to fix the toilet. God just waves them in and the reason this works so well is because people will click on anything i mean. Have you seen the links at the bottom of news articles. You'll never believe what the house from malcolm in the middle looks like today. I mean. I've never even seen that show. But i've read that article eight times and one of the most messed up things about these crimes is who tends to be the victims. It's not usually rich corporations because they can't afford the latest cybersecurity and the best. It guys you know talking about the guy. With the short short sleeve button downs. The ones that betty make possible shoulders so because these companies are harder to strike instead the hackers squeeze ransom out of the places that can already least afford it for years. Ransomware attacks have targeted retailers hospitals police departments utilities state and local governments. Their data held hostage until they pay up. Cash-strapped municipalities are uniquely vulnerable to this kind of ransomware attack because they're using older systems they don't keep them updated and they don't have the resources to be able to respond today. Twenty six percent of cities and counties say they fend off an attack on their networks. Every hour cyber-crooks no governments in hospitals are likely to pay because they can't afford not to. There was nothing that we could do to unlock those files. Invest option for us. Even though it was the last worst option for us was to pay the ransom. Shame men i company hackers stooping solo. That they're demanding ransom from police departments. It's disgusting. They need that money for the brutality settlements you monsters and of course a hospital has no other choice but to pay has shut down your operating room in the middle of the surgery. What are you gonna do. Send the patient home with only one of their butt. Implants put in. No the chiefs will be uneven so hackers using ransomware to cripple hospitals police departments until the companies and local governments and as a society. It's going to be chaos if all of those things crash. I mean except for the hospitals. I don't need those when it's my thomas. My tom and i'm ready unless it's my appendix. Then i need a hospital. But i mean for like major shit. You know what. I mean so because it's so major you'd think that the federal government would step in and make sure that this doesn't happen. The problem is there's actually not much the federal government can do this. Chaos left in the wake of colonial pipelines. Ransomware attack has heightened concerns about america's cyber security the energy grid water supply almost no federally mandated cyber security protections. The federal government depends on private companies improving their cyber hygiene to avoid ransomware attacks. Eighty five percent of american critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector. The government has very little visibility on whether these private corporations have good cybersecurity or bad cybersecurity one of the issues as with private companies they are not required to disclose cyber attacks. That really hinders the ability for law enforcement in the government to make an informed decision and develop the best policy options that they have tried to counter this attack no country is more connected technologically than the us. That makes you more vulnerable to this kind of stuff. I mean really. The only solution is turn the switch off. I mean disconnect yourself from the internet yea disconnected from. the internet. doesn't sound so hard. I mean all you have to do. Subscribe to spectrum rillo. I get that it's difficult for the government to regulate the internal security of private companies but the ransomware cannot be to put the entire country into airplane mode. I mean no one even does that on airplanes unfortunately as of right now there's not another solution that seems workable so until there is americans might need to stop panic buying gasoline and start panic buying bitcoin. And if you don't know nine. So what exactly is the big deal about five g because you might think it's just four g. but a little bit faster but it's actually a lot faster so fast in fact that it could change the world. The new world of five g technology promises to transform our lives connecting millions of devices and enabling everything from driverless cars to smart homes up to twenty times faster than the four g. Most of us use now five lightning fast. Technology will accelerate an interconnect everything to download a to film on three g. would take about twenty six hours on four. Gb waiting six minutes and of five g. you'll be ready to watch your film in just over three and a half. Dare you could download an entire movie in three seconds. That's going to be fast. I mean we'll still spend forty five minutes trying to decide which movie to download but once we've decided will need to go to bed because we're tired but tomorrow three seconds. My friends at five g isn't just about download speeds. It's a game changer. For everything with five g you can have cities where everything communicates like doctors can perform surgeries from the other side of the world. Can you imagine a world where your videos never buffer right. Your calls never dropped. That would be amazing. Except i guess now you could never fake a call dropping with five g because that excuse is like i'm i'm losing. I'm looking breaking not breaking up. We got five g like yeah. Yeah you're right kerry grandma my grandma samuel jackson. There's no denying the technology is great. But why china and the us care so much about who makes it was the same reason they care about anything the benjamins baby when the us one the four g race earlier this decade it provided a nearly one hundred billion dollar boosts to gross domestic product and the stakes of the five g rates are even higher if the wins. It would create an estimated three million jobs and add approximately five hundred billion dollars to gdp. That's right. If america wins the five g race that could bring millions of jobs and five hundred billion dollars to the country's gdp five hundred billion dollars hard hardest. It is to get five hundred billion dollars like you'd have to marry and divorce. Jeff bezos five times. And i mean after the fourth time he'd probably catch on he'd be like i think you don't love me what music and the fight about five g isn't just about money and downloading avengers like that. No it's also about power because if you control five g you have access to everything. People are doing online. Which is everything and right now. The best five g technology is made by a chinese company called huawei and because the chinese company is chinese. Many governments trust how secure. It's going to be. Who are we may be best known to most people from making phones but it's also a leading player in building the infrastructure for all our communications critics fear that allowing it to build five g could enable the chinese state to spy on or even switch off the flow of data. We will all depend on. Imagine that if huawei becomes the leading five you provide in the world then. China can spy on everyone which is terrible. Because that's what america wants to do. And i know you judging. Well if america wants to do it then how do they point right. You want to do it i. It's like when you cut someone off in traffic and then someone else cuts in front of you like so. That was my move. But those are the stakes job money and power. And i'm not to try and boy you with all the technical details but while america is developing its own five g. China's five g is so far ahead like they're basically going to set the trends. It's like how back in the day. They used be a fight between dvd and laser disc. Yeah and if you're wondering what the hell is exactly. That's america's five g so this is a race many people already saying america has lost. Luckily and i can't believe i'm saying this. America is lucky that you have a maniac on your team who's willing to play dirty. President trump has signed an executive order banning us companies from using telecom equipment deemed to be a national security threat and that's a direct shot at china and its tech giant wa z. Us clamp down on the company goes as a major effect. The uk's biggest mobile network pulling wildly from his five g launch while three of japan's mobile operators some stop taking orders or delayed the summer release of a new while way phoned donald j mother effing trump. This guy i could see. America wasn't gonna win so he just got a crowbar and pull the tonya harding on china's five g winning straight there. Yeah the man might not know what five g. is but he does know how to mess up other people's shit going to be honest with you. I don't actually blame. Donald trump. Because i don't know how america can win this race because even if america does managed to cripple huawei in china. It's not like america will suddenly have great five g. You won't have five g overnights unless america. Just pretend that it does. At and t. is putting a fake five g logo on iphones and ipads now. The company confirmed a pc magazine that the new icons can show up when users download. Apple's latest beta version of ios twelve point two but is that really g at and t. Just changed the name for its four g. Lt invest network to five g. e. the east end's for evolution. Okay that's really sad. At and t.'s. Is going to lie and put another stick. It's like you have a smart car and then you just tape lamborghini on the side of it chicken out driving a lambo now. Zero to sixty four minutes flat butts seeing has a race. That might be lost. Eight hundred and t might be onto something here because this is considered the new space race so maybe america can win this race the same way at one the last form just fake it baby.

This Week's Top Stories - Biden-Carter Photo Op, Trump's Facebook Ban, Josh Fight & More

"You're listening to comedy central. If you have no idea what to buy mom for mother's day i do nothing instead. Send her money using western union and let her pamper herself by choosing what she wants. Western union make sending money fast easy and reliable so send gratitude to mom this mother's day by sending her the gift of money with western union download the western union and send more than money offered by western union financial services inc. Nmls nine oh. Six ninety three or western union and international services llc nine five terms apply president biden took a break from looking for a white house cats for his party and went down to georgia where he and the first lady met up with the oldest and most adorable predescessors. We want to show you this. Show from the carter center. This was the visit of president biden. Dr jill biden jimmy and rosalynn carter in georgia last week. The former president is ninety. Six the first lady ninety three and browder. They're going to celebrate their seventy fifth wedding anniversary in july. That's amazing seventy five years. It's great to see this photo. Okay i mean don't get me wrong. I'm really happy to see these people altogether and smiling and everything. It's just what goes on in this photo like. Why does it biden's look five times bigger than the cars. Is this some dollhouse full to that. I didn't know about. Because i've been staring at this thing the whole day and i still can't figure out what's going. I can't figure out if the biden's had elite growth spurts or if they're playing with. Jimmy carter action figures or maybe both at the same time like but one the photographers instructions here. All right guys. We're going to do normal one and we're gonna do a goofy one and then we're gonna do one where it looks like. You're from two separate dimensions. Yeah we good honestly this is the weirdest picture of a president since well any picture of donald trump. But i'm not hating these. Don't get me wrong. I think it's great to see presidents of different generations coming together to make me think that i'm on shrooms. What is one of the biggest concerns. People have about modern technology privacy right because our phones know everything about us what music we listen to. How much sleep. We get what i'll face looks like when we're pooping but now apple is going to give you a little more control over how widely that information is shared. You know how it goes. You search for something online then seen ad on facebook or instagram. For that exact item. Well apple is making it harder for apps to track your online activity. When you're using apps on your iphone you may start to see apple users must now give permission for apps to track your online activity data before you could only opt out. It's about time jenny. Gephardt is with the privacy nonprofit. The electronic frontier foundation searching from the to opt in is huge. That is going to really make a lot more users. Opt out of this tracking feature that wasn't built for users. it was built for advertisers. That's why people with the new updates. You have to opt in to being tracked online instead of having to opt out and i know it might seem like a small change but this is a huge deal because people are lazy as shit like think about if apple said that they were going to put all your news online unless you opted out. You'd probably be like what no ways. Well where's that opt-out option settings general. Where i you know what. I'm proud of my polish. Do i don't care anymore. i got things to do. And people don't understand how much inflammation face because actually getting from your other apps like you think it's a small thing you know how to your friends. Oh i was talking about something and then it popped up. Is my phone listening to me. No it's the apps like if you're in atlanta and you check the weather in vermont. It won't wait for you to search for a winter coat before it starts showing ads for one. And if you've been ordering pizza every night on grub well then. The ads will show you a coach. That's two sizes up because it knows so. This new privacy feature is good news for iphone uses but it turns out. It's very bad news for one of apple's biggest rivals facebook in fact. It's so bad for them that they've started throwing up pop-ups begging everyone to let them keep tracking us and warning us that if we don't facebook might stop being free of charge and i'm not gonna lie people that seems like an empty threat to me because who would pay to be on facebook with the type of people willing to pay to be on facebook. That's like if a crack house at a cover charge actually wouldn't mind a facebook started charging people because i think if they did maybe people would actually think for a second before they posted. The government puts flow right in the water to brainwash us coast two dollars. Keep it to myself now. The reason facebook needs to track its uses so that it can charge big bucks to advertisers. Who want to target very specific audiences but rocks book knows that people don't care if he can't afford to give across the beginning for its birthday so instead he's asking you to think about the poor companies that will suffer if he contract you. Facebook said apple's move will harm their small business. Advertisers gonna kill us. It's going to kill us. But from nick wilson deb riano who was featured in a facebook campaign and owns charleston gourmet burger. The change has already affected sales and she's had to cut costs. It's not a bow. You know small businesses you know wanting to take away anyone's privacy always wanted to really Our customers better so if someone loves. Hamburgers are looking for something. That is just awesome to nigger hamburgers. Case fair i would like to show my ad to you and this update takes that away. Small businesses. Like by okay. Well this is interesting. I mean i don't like getting tracked but it is true that does help some small businesses target their ads. You know and the truth is in life bad. things can't have good side effects. Like how serial killers abed. We all agree that their bed. But you do get a lot of really one costs out of them. Yeah no so. I can't see what. Facebook is trying to argue here. They're saying. Do you really want to hurt. Small businesses before amazon has a chance to bankrupt them and honestly i wouldn't mind targeted ads that much but the thing is it's how it is how facebook tracks all of us that i don't like like it will be one thing if facebook asks me. Hey trevor do you like hamburgers. We're going to say stuff about food. Facebook does is basically just sent some guy named gary just stalk my entire life. Hey trevor i heard you like hamburger. Mary's what how did you know that he he he he. I read an email. You send to your girlfriend so maybe you're still not swayed by the effect of this change on small businesses and that's why facebook is also warning of the bleak future that awaits all of us. If they can't track our every movement anymore. Facebook's pushing back relies on that data to target consumers with relevant ads so if people do opt out. Here's what facebook says could happen. Say young man is looking for new pair of sneakers on his phone. Facebook claims that with apple's new rules. It won't be able to use his search history information about what other apps he uses to show him ads for things he wants to buy so on facebook or instagram could end up seeing ads for women's clothing. Our furniture rarely. This is a real argument. Come on guys. We've lived our entire lives watching untargeted ads right. Tv ads newspaper ads. Billboards none of those were targeted and we were fine. I now all of a sudden they making. It seem like we live without them. Like we're going to be a whole new. Who knew and have to which untargeted. But how will i know if a product isn't for me would if i buy tampons because i didn't know that i don't have a period. What if i buy dog food. But i don't have a dog and my dog and my dog one temp on. I don't know we can handle on targeted ads. In fact sometimes i'm targeted ads. Introduce you things that never knew you needed. Yeah like a shower seat. I didn't think about that before. I came to america. And then now. That i'm here realize just because i'm not. At doesn't mean a get clean and comfortable and you know on top of all that facebook makes it seem they make it seem like all the us that data for is to sell us the products that we want. But don't forget that the reason you often only see posts that make you mad as hell is because of all the time facebook tracking you and they use that targeting to piss you off. It's not a coincidence. That facebook is always telling you that joe biden is going to make the bible spanish. Only trump stole all the mailboxes. To give to kim jong un. It's because they know how to keep you engaged for as long as possible. And they know this by tracking you and again. I'm not pro apple here right. But apple didn't build their entire business model on stalking you. Facebook did and if moving society away from tracking people that gary to find a new job then so be it my dandruff who'll recommend creams for your toenail fungus. Get the gotta here gary. Donald j trump for my united states presidents and the reason america will be paying for decades of therapy. It has been five months. Since trump was indefinitely suspended from facebook the minor infraction of trying to overthrow the government. I mean who hasn't done that but today brought some new karachi on where you will and won't be seeing trump online going forward decision day this morning in a facebook off with the company's independent oversight board upholding the decision to keep former president donald trump off the platform at least for now but the board a kind of supreme court for facebook says it's not appropriate for the company to just make the ban indefinite giving facebook six months to review its decision. Donald trump already moving on from the traditional social media sites ahead of the decision. He's launched his own new blog called from the desk of donald j trump. The blog posts are formatted like tweets and include options for people to post the content on other social media sites. People can sign up for alerts so they know when the former president bright something hold up dude has been saying for months that he's going to create a whole new social media platform to rival twitter and facebook. He just ended up making a blog and not just that he's called the blog from the desk of donald trump. When we know for a fact that he doesn't spend any time there. I mean you might as well call it from the juice bar of donald trump. But i get it. you know. Trump had to do something to distract from the fact that he lost his appeal to get back on facebook or as he put it. We won this appeal in a landslide. Everyone knows this. Show many victories. And look i get why. Facebook extended trump suspension. But you have to admit it does seem pretty unfair to ban him from a website that began as a way to rate women's looks. Oh and just as a side note. It's crazy the facebook even has a supreme court to make these decisions. What's even crazier is mitch. Mcconnell has already appointed four justices if you're gonna cork. According to the internet's winston churchill. Once said history will be kind to me. I know this. Because i intend to right now. I'm not sure that he should have been so confident about how history would work because it turns out that he never actually said that but he did say something very similar to. Its which makes it more accurate than most quotes on the incidents. To be honest. I guess there's just something very powerful about having a person having some i tell size texts next to their face but the point about history being written by the winners is true. Just look at the american revolution. America won that war so history teaches it as a fight for freedom against the tyranny of england but best believe if england had won the war will history would be about how they put down a riots by a bunch of cheating thugs domestic terrorists through our way into boston harbor. Well dressed as native. Americans which aside from being criminal is very problematic and if history is taught by the winners nobody in america's winning more than white people which is why so much of what's in schools has been from their point of view. African american history is not adequately what we learned essentially is whitewashed. History studies have found less than ten percent of class. Time is devoted to black history. Only eight percent of seniors can identify slavery as a central cause of the civil war. There is no national standard. For what history is taught. Each state sets standards which outlines what students are expected to learn. Seven states do not directly mentioned slavery and do not mention the civil rights movement only two states mentioned white supremacy. Learn that slavery was bad but we ended it. Some stuff happened. But martin luther king rosa parks kinda fix that and not look barack obama. We had a black president. Racism is over. We're done yeah. It's pretty crazy that most students in america only taught about a handful of important black-americans. Because can you imagine if it were the other way round. Welcome everybody to white history one. Oh one we start off with. Thomas jefferson where it all began and then well. Nothing really happened until tom. Hanks clash dismissed. But yeah basically america treats history the way. Most people treat their browser history. Just leave old embarrassing stuff and hope no one notices but the good news is that s society changes. They reexamined their pasta and ask themselves. Should we keep telling ourselves what we wish happened. All should we understand what actually happened. And that's what's happening. In american schools right now students are asking their school administrators to incorporate anti-racist education into their curriculum. They aim to have books written by a person of color and their life. Struggles are required part of the curriculum in north carolina. A committee of social studies. Educators proposed that the term. Systemic racism should be included in the states. Curriculum standard california state board of education has created the nation's first statewide model for ethnic studies curriculum. At the high school level education officials. Say that kids do need to learn about discrimination and oppression. That textbooks often overlook a lotta times in school. You don't see a big of black history. I c comments all the time. Saying i learn more on tiktok than i do for my own school. Yeah that's how much education is lacking in america. Kids are going to take talk to learn which is insane. Social media isn't supposed to be a school. It's supposed to be where you post stuff that gets suspended from school. And i'm not saying you can't learn about history on tiktok. Don't get me wrong. I'm just saying you got to be careful not to mix up history with everything else. Happening on tiktok wait. So herod. tubman started the underground railroad and the weight loss. Dance pretty dough. Now re examining your history is not easy to do especially if it requires some self criticism in many ways writing. History is like a break-up each person wants to tell the story about how they were. The one who is right and the other person wasn't asshole you know. It feels better to say she wasn't nice to my family as opposed to she found out about my secret second wife and in the same way as american schools are starting to change. What they teach about america's history with racism. It's causing a strong reaction from people who are uncomfortable with what their kids on learning. There's growing backlash tonight. Against what critics call the indoctrination of public school students in an anti white curriculum that has to do with the teaching of what is called critical race theory. Critical race theory teaches people and our children to judge one another not based on the content of their character but solely on the color of their skin. It would have our children growing up hating this country and hating one. Another teachers more or less that america is inherently racist stating more or less than that. If you're born white you're necessarily racist. Essentially every white person should apologize for being white and what happened two hundred plus years ago. We are tired of the continual drumbeat or educational system as used the program for kids to program our kids into thinking that america is a country of hate in division. I do not why critical race theory taught to my children in school. Tell me that. I'm a racist bravo. Tearing up is like a white woman's go to move for getting out of any sticky situation. Well if it got me out of a speeding ticket see if it works on a historical reckoning. Look i get why these parents upset. I mean they don't children. Learning that white people are inherently racist. But that's not necessarily what teaching about racism does for example a big reason why american neighborhoods are segregated. Today is historically. The government made it almost impossible for black people who tried to move into white neighborhoods. It was called redlining and it was a societal structure. That still has racist effects. Even if no white people in those neighborhoods now are personally bigots. The point is that you can look at your history critically without believing that you will personally to blame for it and a good example of this is germany. They teach the holocaust in the schools. But lindell claus isn't walking home from class. Like my my been nancy this i was gonna want him seeing him even. I'm five yes all you know. That doesn't happen. Because germans understand that we learn from history to grow from it not to wallow in it. But you see what's happening right now. Is that in america. Some people don't understand that and they're hysteria is spilling into the laws. Several states including florida idaho in iowa have worked to ban the sixteen nineteen project in critical race. Theory from their core education. plants or 'kansas became the latest state where state agencies or barred from teaching any concept that the united states is an inherently racist nation in louisiana. A republican lawmaker is now under fire for comments. He made on the house floor when proposing the theories elimination from academic curriculum. I if you're having a discussion on whatever the case may be on slavery then you can talk about everything dealing with slavery. The good the bad the ugly. There's no good to slavery though. Well then whatever whatever the case may be. You're right you're right. I didn't mean to imply that. Wow guys. wow it's almost like this guy wasn't properly taught about america's history with racism Although i am glad that he recognized how wrong he was. you know. Part of me does wish that he had just kept on digging in a rally. You that no good came from slavery. What i'm the only one who likes to blows. None of you like the blows. Who's the railway says now. Still may i guess it is still me and you know what's really weird about this whole thing is how the same people who freak out about cancel culture now wanna use the power of the government to stop bad ideas from getting into schools but i guess the solution is if anyone really wants to get anti-racism education in schools. Well they should put the curriculum. And mr potato head's penis and that wake conservatives will defend that shit to the death not look. Don't get me wrong. i'm not saying that. Systemic racism is behind all of america's problems. In my opinion. I think a lot more laws are written to protect the upper class from the lower classes. I mean that's why a lot of laws that screw over black people also screw over poor white people like a lot of counties in america pull poor people over and ticket them for random things like tail lights or whatever they want just to meet their quotas but what they won't do is do that kind of thing on wall street right they don't pull people over who have access to lawyers or access to power milnes frisking down the guys from wall street to check if they have cocaine they wanna go off the poor people and it just so happens that the easiest way to find poor people in america. It's a look at the color of their skin because if they're black the charges are higher that they put or look at how. It's illegal to jump turnstiles in new york. I mean that's targeted towards poor people but it affects black people more because white men can't jump but that's just me the big issue that has been brought up with this controversy is what is the point of teaching history like what is the actual point is to make kids feel good that they live in a perfect country with no problems. All is it to give them an unsparing assessment of how society got where it is so that they have the tools to change it in a better direction. And i say it should the latter because otherwise as a wise person once said those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it how much we have to pay for outdated impersonal healthcare and even crazier that we all just accept it.

That's go forward dot com last year when the pandemic started a guy named josh sense a facebook message to a bunch of other guys named josh challenging them all into a fight in one year's time and like most of us who can't even keep plans we made earlier in the day. These guys are followed through on its. What's in a name. We'll just ask josh or ask all of them who gathered in lincoln nebraska for a pool noodle braun. Dining josh created a josh fight at the start of the pandemic and then challenged all joshes to a duel. The event got the attention of joshes from all over the nation but the winner of the friendly fight was the smallest josh of the mall. Four year old. Josh was honored with a paper crown and bragging rights congressional josh for winning. That josh fights and condolences to the family of josh grogan who that child beats into a coma fiercely. It is cool to see justice from all around the country coming together to have some harmless fun. you know. usually when that many josh's same place the only thing that comes out of it is what hedge fund. And you know that's one of the cool things about the internet. Is that it. Lets these kinds of events happen. Organically you know for no reason at all. I mean it's either that or maybe this was actually a giant undercover operation to capture josh. Duggar in a way. It worked after watching. This guy realized that we need to crown a champion for every name because too often i meet someone like say my neighbor steve and i think to myself is this the best steve i could be talking to. I mean i've limited time in my life. I'm not gonna spend it on some some pa steve. Yeah talking about you again. They won't make noise at night. You think i'm not talking about your show. The only name you couldn't try this with is karen. Yeah don't ever try. Create a karen fight to karen fights who'd be much less fun all right. Is everybody ready all right. Let's do this three two one. Go hello police. i'm gonna field come hell when come quickly. Someone is calling the cops meals on their phone and then scared down here right now or i'm going to sue the city. The republican party. That's the only party. That mitch mcconnell has ever been invited to party purple on behalf farmer since donald trump got the party's presidential nomination in two thousand sixteen. Gop has been divided between politicians who loved trump's brash grabbing by the pussy style. And those who believe in more traditional republican values like telling poor people to stop being poor and now one of the last holdouts among the anti trump traditionalists maybe about to get the boots tonight the firestorm over congresswoman. Liz cheney's position in the republican party is growing with top republican. Steve scalise saying she needs to be removed from her role as the third ranking. Gop leader at issue cheney's fierce criticism of former president trump arguing. He should not be a part of the. Gop's future the capital attack and his false claims of election fraud. I think that it was Was the gravest violation of an oath of office by any president in american history. Cheney survived one removal vote after she voted to impeach mr trump in january but her. Gop critics have only gotten louder. Another removal vote is likely to come next week on wednesday top house. Republican kevin mccarthy caught on a hot mike obtained by mediaite. I've lost confidence liz. Cheney remains defiant warning her colleagues in a new washington post op. Ed that history is watching calling this a turning point. The gop is at a turning point. Negga that happened a long time ago. You remember jeb. Bush flying out of the car that was turn. That was the ultimate turn. Still though i gotta give props to this chaney for risk in her political career to stand up for she believes in. Because you don't see that very often like seeing someone using iphone as an actual phone was like damn shit. I forgot that they could do that. Wow so it was something. My grandmother for me man and yes. It is a little weird to see a potty be so loyal to a guy who doesn't have loyal bone in his body or possibly any bones in his body bought. Loyalty trump is a defining principle of the gop. And if she doesn't agree with that it doesn't make much sense for her to be one of the party's leaders. You know like. I think gratitude book makes some great points but i don't think that she should be on the board of exxon mobil. Have we consider that. Instead of selling oil you all go to prison for killing the planet's can you stop proposing that every meeting. Who invites her to these things. Why is she here. And you might think it's weird that the party is so outraged over one person saying donald trump lost the election. But the reason they're so mad about liz. Cheney is that they don't accept that the truth seventy percent of republicans think joe biden probably stole the election. And even now there are still efforts. Going on to overturn the results in close states including a big one in arizona. A pitched partisan battle over the two thousand. Twenty election is raging on in arizona. Right now the gop controlled state senate is carrying out a third audit of arizona's largest county. Even though to prior bipartisan. Audits found zero evidence of widespread fraud or other issues. The audit is being conducted by people who participated in the insurrections anthony. Kern former state lawmaker. Who was at the. Us capitol on january six is among the people helping to count and inspect maricopa county ballots overseeing the exercise of florida cybersecurity firm called cyber ninjas. It's run by someone who amplified election conspiracy theories the arizona. Boats are being recounted by side. But ninjas punch i mean i thought regular ninjas were cool but cyber ninjas kind of ninjas will steal your wifi password and then when you turn around you look for them headphones off guys i really love ninjas like since i was a little kid my tenth birthday party was me and a big group of invisible ninjas and now that i'm saying it out loud i realized my mom just told me that because no one showed up. Now you might think it's crazy to have election conspiracy theorists in charge of an election audits but to me. This makes perfect sense. Because don't forget this is the third audit they've done in arizona at this point you won't going through the effort of counting again unless you know the guys you hiring a going to give you the results you want. This is just smart. And if you're wondering how a bunch of conspiracy nuts are going to turn a biden win into a trump when the answer is in the craziest way possible. Ballot recount has been plagued with questions from the beginning investigative reporter. Morgan low exposed major security lapses such as open doors that allowed access to equipment and ballots also reported blue. Pens that can be used to alter. Ballots were handed out to volunteers on friday. A judge ordered cyber ninjas the private company hired to do the audit provide documents outlining their procedures among the many conspiratorial revelations from the release of the internal cyber ninja documents and intense fear of an attack and breach by antifa and the use of uv. Light to look for fraud. According to a cunanan theory the uv light will reveal watermarks that donald trump put on the ballots trap cheating democrats. Another bizarre twist said. I was just telling you about moments ago in arizona. Audit auditors are now looking for bamboo in ballots. audit official. john. Breaky says there are accusations. That forty thousand ballots were smuggled in from asia while there's no evidence of this break says auditors are using cameras now to look for bamboo fibers in ballot paper though noted. I'm sorry no america's not real no. These dudes are searching the ballots for bamboo like a bunch of stopping pandas. Like who are these people you know. Sometimes sometimes i actually wish that i was a conspiracy theorist because there is never a dull moment like they can turn a regular ass thursday into an indiana jones. Movie like this and just so you know. They've been looking at these ballots with uv lights for two weeks now and they haven't found any secret watermarks but they did find the ninety. Eight percent of the ballots is on them. Yeah this is why you can't put curtains. On voting booths people are disgusting. Now it's easy to dismiss this arizona audits but there's at least one person who's pretty sure that it's going to put donald trump back in power and you'll never guess who that person is former president. Donald trump meanwhile continues to perpetuate the big lie about election fraud. Video has surfaced of him the crowd at mar-a-lago last wednesday discussing the republican led recount. That's currently underway in arizona's maricopa county find. I wouldn't be surprised if they found thousands and thousands and thousands of votes. So we're going to watch the earn closely. You watch convenient. And you watch georgia and you vichy and wisconsin. And you're watching. You have survey found a lot of votes up in new hampshire. All my god donald. What happened to you. This guy was the president of the united states just a few months ago and now he's like the world's worst winning dj. And i'm not even gloating here. It is sad to see. Dj t reduced to crushing parties at mar-a-lago infect if they were smart level with charge you extra to have trump not appear at your wedding If possible could we not have the former president and my father daughter dance to rant about the stolen election You want wanna spring for the deluxe package of course darling. I do feel though that we're discovering new rule of physics here. If donald trump comes into contact with a microphone he's gonna to ramble about how the election was rigged. Doesn't even have to be a wedding. He'll take over. Anything can even be a funeral and we just saw that. They found some votes in pennsylvania. So unlike jimothy here we're very much alive. People very much alive but look the truth is trump ranting about the stolen election to an audience that eats up every word. That is the republican party right now.
