Cuomo clears New York schools statewide to open, carefully
"Reopen following the Koven 19 quarantine, But it's not that simple. All school districts in the state, including New York City must submit reopening plans to the State Health Department, which will have final say New York's initial 32 page reopening proposal was criticised by the teacher's union and others for a lack of testing and lax safety standards. Fox's David Lee Miller, America is listening to Fox.
Gary Bernhardt - TypeScript and Testing
"Thing that you said about the test, we verifying the behavior system is totally true if you number one have well, if you have perfect coverage to the system. And that doesn't mean just line wise coverage because executing every line isn't sufficient. It doesn't mean even path coverage path coverage means like let's say you have a function with two with a conditional with two sides and an els, and then after that on related to the second conditional with two sides, you have four paths to that function because you can take either side of the first conditional on either side of the second. So. Even covering all the paths isn't sufficient because the data might vary in weird ways that 'cause you might, for example, you never thought to test for when some arrays empty and you're indexing until you're getting an undefined out your test never tested that. So the thing about. Let's throw away the integer versus strength and just think about like you have a function that takes a supposedly takes a string. and. You didn't think about what happens if it's undefined. Well, maybe you never pass undefined that function, but maybe you pass something that was indexed out of an array to a, and if that array was emptier, didn't contain that index, you're going to get an undefined and this is like at least in dynamic languages. This is one of the most common and annoying sources of bugs is whatever kind of knowles your language has and they show up. Yeah Yeah. Exactly. And these languages tend to have very lax with with somewhat an exception of Python. They have very lax handling of knowles. So like indexing ray with an unexpected index gives you all in undefined, her nail or whatever. It's called same thing with Hashes objects. So. One of the big benefits of a static type system. As you can say, this function takes a string and under no conditions will allow you to pass an undefined into their. except. Took mentioned, the type script was designed under severe constraints. Actually, type script does have this problem because of the type of indexing array is the type of the array. It is not union with undefined. So. This is not the greatest example, but there are lots of sort of other situations like this objects are a better example. Cause type stripped will prevent you from. Accessing a property that doesn't exist on an object and getting an unexpected undefined, and then passing that down into a function that never expected the undefined, all of that kind of weird. Stuff. This kind of weird bugs that can only occur due to run time. Data. A lot of them go away, not all of them and you know the language determines how many if you're programming Idris like really, you get pretty close to all them going away if you programming in type script like. It probably gets you eighty percent of the way towards preventing those kinds of things. But. This stuff comes up constantly with. A. So that was all. That's all of that was supposing perfect test coverage. You still have these problems that are based on run time data. They're not based on the structure of the code you wrote, would that mean that you don't actually have perfect test coverage though like that is the implication. So. I. Don't want to write I, don't want to one. Hundred Percent Path Coverage, I? Don't even want achieve one hundred percent line coverage. So an execute programs code base. The ratio of test code to should've written the actual number down, but it's something like maybe four to one production code test code is. That is that feels like a lot more production code to TESCO than what I remember seeing like the destroyer software screen casts and stuff. Like Ruby and rails stuff. Yeah, and it's a lot. It's a lot more production to test than in the destroy all software code base as well because in Ruby and like I have to. Constantly. Protect myself from from mistakes. and. With type script and play. I can strategically test. Things at just the right place. So like EXCO program has this core bit of code that handles year kind of progression through a course and the lessons and so on. That's really critical and quite complex code. All of that is like just paranoid testing around because if any of that ever goes wrong, it's going to get baked into the database and it's you know it's GonNa be there forever. But for example, our reactor components. Strictly speaking we have zero tests around the entire react. And that's there are a few points that are actually tested, but they're kind of factored out like reducer, kind of stuff like the actual. Component testing. But just like there's some areas of logic that I'd extract, it emerged test for because it was easier to write the code if I had tests while I was writing it sorta thing. Yep, exactly. and that's not to say that the front is never tested because we have some Cyprus tests drive a browser so. Are, tests actually step through every single lesson in the system just to make sure that nothing blows up, but that's more of a just a giant smoke test. So. And it requires no incremental work when I write new content or new components, just kind of works for free. So. By, having type script in place, not having to worry about all the wiring of components I can focus on. Very, complex tight fine grain tests for the core logic. Of the system and I can have this nice high level test runs through and make sure nothing is totally broken, but I don't have to write a whole lot of just really boring like this component. When it this, it renders you know with this class or whatever I. Don't do any of that stuff and. I. Think it's worked really well, I have no regrets about about switching type script for that purpose because the overhead is quite small when programming but the test over the saved as massive, I mean, we're talking about. I wrote a blog post with numbers in it, but I think it was something like the system would be two point, five times as many lines of code. If I had done standard, what was it two to one test to code ratio?
Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter: COVID-19 Outbreak Happened Because Players ‘Let Their Guard Down’
"The cardinals of the latest team to suffer a corona virus outbreak resulting in their four game series in Detroit being postponed the I. of course, was the Marlins. Here's Derek jeeter their man in charge describing how his players behaved before all this happened. Oil. Down to on this particular trip was. Guys were around each other got relaxed in. Let Their guard down. There were getting together in groups. They weren't wear masks as as they should have been warned social distancing of the entire traveling party is responsible for not following. The Protocols has instructed that that includes staffs, players. Everyone is seen seen the impact. They've seen their teammates, you'd sick. As I bring the Jeff Passan and Jessica does in Jeeter did go on to say, I think this is important that he had seen as we all have people suggesting that when they were in Atlanta, maybe the guys went out to bars and clubs and all of that strongly refuted that notion he was saying, yes, they got lax in some of their protocols, but it wasn't like they were out there doing things that were like super erase. I just thought that was important to get in. That said Jeff, what does the League's response to the Marlins, and now the cardinals outbreaks tell us about what we should expect for the remainder of this season. Greenie tells us that Major. League Baseball is saying damn the torpedoes full speed ahead, we are going to play through outbreaks and we saw that with the marlins and we're seeing that now with the cardinals, seven players on the cardinals have covid nineteen six staff members as well. Those thirteen people have been sent back to Saint Louis Right now is the cardinals trying to figure out what exactly they are going to do. They played only five games, this season Greeny, and yet the fact that they're missing potentially at least another four games possibly another week of games on top of that. MLB says, okay. This is this is reality if we want to put a baseball season on traveling around the country in two thousand twenty and it is a reality that they are embracing in full because at this point, if there's going to be baseball Greenie they really don't have another choice Jessica. What do you think? I think that honestly, this is something that's going. We're going to see it again in another team I hate saying that, but you get one player and that's what jumps out to me. So much is now seen it with two teams in a week or one player has it, and then the next thing you know you blink and overnight five, six, seven players get it, and I think even talking with, Mike, Chill, the cardinals manager everyone realizing how quickly this can spread and that's something i. feel. Feel like we're gonNA see continued throughout the MLB
Big tech CEOs testify before Congress
"So, this hearing just going to say it, it was six hours of chaos. So. So many things like individual moments of pure chaos happened this hearing. But because every member of Congress was only given five minutes to ask the questions in and they moved on, no one could process the moments of cash. So here are some things that happened during this hearing. Jeff. bezos just started eating nuts on his call. That was just a thing that you started snacking for the first ninety minutes. It appears that basis had tech issues was operating in some kind of delay. So we didn't hear from him. They just answer any questions and they'd take a ten minute break Jeff. bezos could fix his computer. Amazing. Jim Jordan, who McKenna pointed out. On the show last week is always sort of chaos element. Try to talk over several members of Congress got yelled to put his mass back on floated. Just elaborate conspiracy theories. was when I say was chaos I. Don't know if there's any other way to describe it. I. Think that led a lot of people to think the hearing itself didn't accomplish its goals, but I think in many ways it did. But Kennedy you WanNa Kinda go through what the committee was trying to accomplish the themes they were pointed at in. How hearing played out, right. So okay. First off. Harkening back to last week I mentioned Jim. Jordan's mountain dew obsession. Definitely drink a handful those throughout the hearing I took notes in screen shots. So, I, called it. But regardless of their pores soda choices, there were a lot of lawmakers who definitely did their homework and I think that was really apparent throughout the entire hearing and when I look at. The picture that they tried to paint I think that became really clear in chairman Sicily's opening statements. So this is the guy who liked. And spearheaded the entire investigation from the beginning, and in those opening statements, he pointed out that yeah Apple Amazon Google facebook. There are different in a lot of ways and they exhibit anticompetitive behaviors potentially allegedly and a lot of different ways. But what they tried to pull together and was a story, and it's really hard to tell a story and five minute fragments. But what happened yesterday was Sicily. Ni, and a lot of the Democrats on the Committee wanted to point out that these companies they become bottlenecks for distribution whether that's information or just like APP stores marketplace's they control what gets distributed in how what was really key to the investigation was how? How they survey competitors. If you have so much control dominance over a market or a specific part of the tech industry, you have a lot of insight into your competitors and you can do a lot of dangerous things with that, and then lastly, after that dominance has gained, it's how they abuse it. Right? How they abuse it to make harder for small businesses in competitors and I think that's exactly what Cellini pointed out in the beginning and I think they did a poor job that storytelling throughout the process. But I think that's also our job. Right is to pull that evidence together and tell that story for them in a way that isn't like. Yes, no yelling at CEOS and like stopping them and I think by getting that in the evidentiary record doing all this questioning, I think they really did achieve their goal in the end. Yeah. I mean, I think the thing that happened sort of next to the hearing was that they released a bunch of documents from these one point, three, million documents of clutch. Over the past year, they released pretty targeted selection documents for every company showing some of this stuff, Casey, I wrote a story about. facebook. INSTAGRAM. My I'm going to frame this email or mark Zuckerberg. Literally one sentence, no period. The Andrew says I need to figure out. I'M GONNA buy instagram like I would love to just be in a place were sending that email like super casually like I got this thing to figure out and it's not like am I gonNa buy the model of the car. It's like instagram. I've been thinking of the text messages where so and so says that Mark Zuckerberg's didn't go destroy mode on instagram ever since they got that up. Case she this to Kevin and right that text was. Yes. Well, it was Kevin. System was talking to an investor and Kevin said to the investor. If we don't sell well, mark, go into destroy mode on us and the investor side probably. Of course, stray casual. So there's just a lot of documents and I think one of the functions of hearing was to get those documents into the official congressional record to make the CEO's account for them. That did not seem very successful to me. Is like a takeaway people should have from this hearing, right? No. I think a lot of people that go into these hearings are expecting like these big Gotcha moments and expecting like a lot of news and all this stuff. But it really, it wasn't oversight hearing. You know it wasn't. They didn't come. They came at this like in a report last earlier this week that they came out at as investigators. They didn't come at it to make a big show horse and pony show out of it, and yet I think the CEO's didn't. The record well enough to the extent that they could have. But there was definitely, I was expecting them to do a lot less evasion and I expected a lot less room probation with the documents, but it's just the process of a Congressional hearing. It's. It's hard to do that in a congressional hearing. But if you put those documents out there, you get the CEO's on the record a little bit who does excite this excites the FTC. J, and that's who can take this next and then it's also congress. You know they can't break up a tech company, but they can regulate going forward and it's those three key themes that I pointed out earlier that they could regulate. You know what I mean. They could legislate to forbid companies from surveying competitors and things like that, and that's where this goes. So the format of the hearing, every member and five minute chunks, it seemed very clear that the Democrats had some sort of coordinated evidentiary strategy, they would start and. And they would say, I, want to read this email to you. What did you mean by this email and then Jeff bezos would say something like I have. No idea is on works. I. Was real pattern that developed was basis really not doing or claiming he definitely knows claiming not really no way Wayne is under the thing they did or they would ask sooner Pichai about the very granular add deal google made by an ad product, and soon I, would say I'll get back to you, which is basically all responses. So the Democrats seemed like they were coordinated to move through their documents. The Republicans seem to be doing something else that also seem coordinated intentional, but what was their focus because that seemed clear split my takeaway from Jim Jordan who? We got into earlier, he he was interviewing. As if they were all Jack Dorsey. And as we talked about like, yeah, he invited Jack Dorsey to testify, but he doesn't sit on the antidote subcommittees. Anything. He says, it just doesn't matter. So it sounded to me as if he prepared questions Jack Dorsey and then it was like, oh, he's not coming I'll ask Tim Cook the same questions. Another completely crazy moment that happened just seen by and five minute chunks is that. Represented Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin Dear Sweet Wisconsin. Definitely. Asked Mark Zuckerberg why the Donald Junior was banned from twitter and mark. Zuckerberg was happening on twitter facebook and there was just like a moment of confused silence, and then he tried to move on and that just sort of floated by in the river of chaos to tell you how much chaos there was kneeling. When you started to tell that story, I thought you were going to tell the story about when Jim Jordan asked him cook if the famous one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Apple Super Bowl, AD was actually about twenty twenty cancel culture, which is another thing that really happened. I think that's out of context. He didn't ask him. He said clearly, this is. That's definitely what Steve Jobs was thinking IBM is canceled culture and Apple's going to break it with hammer and Jeff. Bezos said that social media is a nuance destruction machine and all this crazy stuff from that. It was a wild will that that particular question when Jim Jordan asked, do you support the cancel culture mov, you could see the CEOS like. 'cause they went in order. He asks them all in order. So First Tim Cook just like basically muttered nothing. Here's like I don't. I support speech whatever. The iphone a keyboard like that was his answer. Sooner per child also, just like muttered, right? He's like Google has always supported free expression Zuckerberg like saw the opportunity and took it and the forces of liberalism I rising I, and then basis was like I cannot. I cannot do in like went for it, and that was just totally insane moment. But it also seems like the Republicans were intentional to try to create their own moments where they were yelling at CEOS about bias on platforms is obviously something cover a. At. You were paying a lot of attention that case you're paying a lot of attention to it. Do you think that was effective in creating because you know there's like a parallel conservative Universe Jim? Jordan was on Tucker. Carlson. Last night like was that effective or d think that the CEO's were able to sort of tamp down on interesting the Tucker Carlson pointed out that Google and other companies are all big donors to Jim Jordan another folks. So that is a weird side, but I think it was actually besides the moment where they mixed up twitter with facebook I. Think this was much more effective off. Off Topic yelling about technology than we usually see like are genuinely issues that like they are upset about that, they could point to largely around like cove nineteen misinformation and they could at least like pick those topics and stick to them rather than kind of asking vague questions about like, why is my phone listening to me? Well, they're definitely asked questions about why are my campaign emails getting filtered by G mail? Yes. I should. I should mention that they have really and they have all of these cases where they ask about extremely specific one off incidents that anyone who has used social media knows happens constantly. And, then turn them into a sinister pattern. But I think they managed to come off as sounding more like they understood what they were talking about the unusual. I think that was a real theme of the hearing, Casey. What did you think of this sort of bias side show that occurred? Well, I mean the the idea that conservative voices are being suppressed is foundational to the conservative movement and is behind the rise of conservative talk radio. It was behind the rise of Fox News. Now that social media exists, we have seen it in this new form, but it is sort of being presented as extra, sinister and worthy of. Some sort of legislative intervention what frustrates me about it is that much more than newspapers or or cable news like Mark Zuckerberg Dorsey. These people benefit hugely from having all possible voices on their platform. None of them is incentivized to drive conservatives off their platform. What they are incentivized to do is have rules that make the place safe and welcoming. So that people want to hang out there and so to the extent that there are issues on the platform, they've largely come because these platforms have rules. And you know you would think that a bunch of free marketeers would realize that the alternative to the system that they're so mad about would be creating a new system, but they don't seem at all interested in doing that. So I just sort of dismissed all of them as charlatans I actually thought it was interesting that the opposite track came up, which was the Stop Hey for profit campaign I kind of wasn't expecting that. The representative Raskin I believe asked facebook. Basically, why aren't you kicking more hate speech off. I forget who else asked like look is the point that you're so big. You don't care about advertiser boycotts I. Mean, you know it will here. Here is a fact that the number one complaint that facebook gets from its users, the thing that users. About. FACEBOOK is that it removes too much content and so if you're running the place, you do have to take these complaints seriously in a way. Right? It might not be you know that you shadow band conservative whatever that even means on social network in twenty twenty. But the fact that you're removing content is really upsetting people. So you can't dismiss that idea entirely, but I still don't feel like we're having that intellectually honest conversation about it. So this was definitely I feel like you can connect the you control distribution. We're GONNA show the abuses of power narrative. We got other. Democrats. With the you control distribution. You're banning conservatives right like I. Think what's Sensenbrenner Again, cups and conservatives are consumers to is that people don't realize that like fifty percent of the population in many ways. But facebook has like famous conservatives working its highest levels Kevin. We last week, we're talking about Kevin Roose keeps sharing the list. List of the most engaged content from crowd tangle. It's all conservative content, and that's so problematic for facebook that they're. They're pushing back with other metrics and graphs of their own, making the facts just aren't there, but it doesn't seem to be convincing. Brett Kevin is being asked to recuse himself from facebook case because he's like best friends with facebook I, AP I wrote a column almost two years ago. Now, arguing that conservatives were trying to redefine. Any conservative identified person having any unwanted outcome on a social network, right? So bias is your name was higher than mine in search results. Bias is used suggested that I follow a Democrat and not a Republican right, and if you take action on your policies that apply to everyone against me a conservative that is biased against conservatives, right. So and by the way I have to say this has been hugely successful because we've talked about it. How many minutes now and the longer that these discussions. Discussions. Go on. They just sort of refi people's minds. The idea that there really is a vast conspiracy to silence conservative speech because he's networks are so big millions of conservatives are having experiences like this every day, and now there is an ideology that is basically a religion for them to attach to, which is although Silicon Valley liberals are out to get. Reason I wanted to talk about the conservative side show, which in many ways was a circus is it feels like the notion that we should be punitive to the companies or mad at the company's. Bipartisan, right we were. We were not looking at a hearing where the Democrats were on the attack. Republicans are saying we love. Apple. We're looking at hearing where they were. Everyone was mad. There are a couple of exceptions to that. There were a couple of I think sensenbrenner and a few other folks were like look we want to be clear. Big is not bad. We just WANNA make sure we're not punishing you for your success, but you were like almost entirely, right? Yeah. I. Mean I. think that's it's important to. To capture that mood like Jeff Bezos Mark Zuckerberg, Tim, Cook soon. Darpa, try they usually get to finish whatever sentence they start saying. Right. They're not used to being interrupted. Their thoughts are usually like you know they get to live in complete sentences and people take them seriously here in five in intervals, they were interrupted almost every time they started speaking to be told that they were wrong that they were filibuster at one point Sicily said stop thinking is for the questions. We can just assume they're all good questions. They. Were getting yelled at and they're going yell that about a variety of things that were pretty specific. So you kind of in your kind of structure here. The first one was controlling distribution. What did you hear as a hearing went on the indicated to that? The committee had a case here? I think the apple's APP store is one thing you know charging thirty percent cuts on certain things is just controlling an APP store. It's the same thing with Amazon's marketplace. They can inherently in control what gets placed and what gets sold and you know if they want to play with search results on Amazon, they can do that, and then on facebook and Google, it's not just like products and software that's information. And it could be information when it's like Google. Google. Stealing yelps, texture views right in putting those in its little info boxes in search queries in facebook if facebook is just like an. Mation, distribution platform and. It can decide Algorithm Mickley. Knowingly. What people get to see this bution was very keen to the committee's hearing yesterday and they pointed out different aspects in which you know each company exhibited that kind of behavior. So the one that will you bring up apple? We wrote about this, say there's much emails. Apples document production is just one hundred and thirty pages of unrelated emails and whatever order see it's like scan through it. So there's a lot of little stories in there. There's one about right to repair and apple realizing it needed to repair. By watching PR people operate by reading their emails journalists. Very entertaining. They're like we had a break like here's our strategy. Here's we're GONNA. That's all in there. You can look at it, but there's a lot about the APP store itself and how they're going to use the mechanics of the APP store to control their platform, and it started at the beginning like the first emails in this production from twenty, ten there. From Phil, Schiller Steve Jobs saying, are we GONNA? Let Amazon Sell Books in the kindle store. Store, it felt like I saw an Amazon ad was hard to watch this hard to watch this ad where a person's reading a book on an iphone in the kindle APP in the pick up an android phone keep reading. He's like literally like it was hard to watch like Schiller's at home like pain what a customer is having an experience that good it really just. Heart and so he's like it was hard to watch. You fours Steve Jobs. They're like we gotta shut it down jobs is the bookstore will be the only bookstore on the APP. Store. That's the way it's going to be everyone's gotta used to it. We know that restricting payments will hurt other things, but that's what we're doing and they started there in two thousand ten and they pulled it out, and then that ladders up into everything that we've seen with, hey, ladders up into the analysis group showing up to. Apple, can pay them to say that there's independent study has revealed. Everybody has a thirty percent cut. It has landed up into Tim Cook, forwarding. He gets a letters from developers that are in this direction. It's like apples breaking my heart and he just like Ford's it. Tim, Cook forwards that email to filter credit eighty, just as thoughts like amazing like they are constantly thinking about the APP store as a mechanism of control for the platform in the leverage and other deals. So the other one was apple is this Amazon one which I have very mixed feelings on saying that this is bad or legal I'm curious for all of your thoughts famously. Did, not have the prime video APP on the Apple TV and all these other places apple, Amazon came to a deal. There's an entire presentation in this production like the slide deck of how the deal is going to work. Apple got to be the preferred seller of its own product. So third parties cancel. Apple. Products, Amazon pages, they got. They have a custom by flow. They've custom product pages, all the stuff in return. Amazon got a lower commission on the APP store and gets to Selatan products which no. No like you can rent a movie from the Amazon APP on the Apple TV, no one else gets to it in one world. This is just pure platform collision, right? Apple cut VIP deal for big companies because it wanted something and you could say this is legal in another world. It's like this is how deals work apple something valuable. Amazon s something valuable and they came to a conclusion wherever made more money and quite frankly the consumer experience platform has got better. How do you read that? Casey? That is good and fair analysis of it. I. Think I did read slightly more scandalous. Tones into it in part because apple would never acknowledge that some developers are more important to it than others even though if you assume that that's true, I think maybe one of the things that's frustrating about it is there is no transparency accountability around which developers get sweetheart deals is that once you hit a certain threshold of revenue will cut your price. Why couldn't they extend that deal to everyone right? Or is it just if we withhold something that seems particularly valuable, we can eventually drag you to the table. Table, which is sort of what seems like happened here. I think in all cases, what I'm always looking for is the accountability, right like and some sense of of equitable treatment of developers and I understand the guys are always going to get the best treatment, but it can that be publicly visible. Can it be acknowledged and there'd be routes for others to achieve that same level of success and treatment, and that I'll just seems missing here. Did you buy Tim Co? He said it twice. It was obviously A. Glimmer, of sympathy for all four CEOS. There is a lot of reporting that they had spent months preparing for this hearing like being grilled there, they'd hire outside law firms. They. Practiced they all clearly had soundbites memorized in none of them. Got To say him because it kept getting interrupted. Tim Cook had this one where he is like if we're the gatekeepers, the gates are open wider than ever. We've gone from five hundred. APPS to one point seven, he said like. A whole speech. and. The thing is there's fierce competition for developers. They don't like our store can do for android the windows. For xbox and PS. Four. Which I was like the idea that adobe is going to be like we don't want to be on the IPAD. Here's PS. Four Photoshop is insanity to me. I'm going to build a spreadsheet. APP. For the five. That's how frustrated with Tim Cook. To that ring. True to you I. Mean, there's no, it does not ring true. There is a, there is a duopoly. In the United States when it comes to smartphones, iphones have majority share in the United States and you can't say, well, you know there's there's a rogue fork of android in Malaysia that you could go develop for if you really wanted to and have that come across as a credible argument to Americans. Right it is. Natural for any monopolist to spend most of its time, arguing that it is much smaller and much less consequential as as you think it is and they're essentially always asking you to ignore what is in front of your face, which is that they are the giant. They are in control. What they say goes, and it doesn't matter which small businesses get hurt along the. The. Way I would point out that the contact and we're gonNA talk about earnings eventually. But the context for that is apple had its biggest third quarter ever this month, their revenues went up eleven percent year over year, they're making obviously making billions of dollars in their services revenue, which is a lot of the narrative around the APP stores increasing that services line. Also went up. I think it was thirteen billion. So you're right. They're very big in their earnings the day after the hearing did nothing. To reduce that impression. I want to switch to Amazon a little bit McKenna. You really focused Amazon was basis first time up there. They came at him a lot about marketplace. How did you think that went I think it went pretty good. I. Think. John Paul specifically was just like killer her questions with breakout star. Yeah. She was just like killer and she's the representative for. SEATTLE. So this is where Amazon is right. So she just like killed it and. And I think there were a couple of instances in the documents and in questioning yesterday that really pulled important things out there was like testimony from one bookseller who was like, yeah. We just can't sell a category of books and we don't know why Amazon doesn't let us do that just like testimony like that or even when it comes to like acquisitions, the ring acquisition especially, I wrote about that today through the documents and how. They said, this is for market position. This is a for technology, your talent or anything. We just bought this and that's something that base said again, yesterday he was just very clear. It's like, yeah, we do buy things market position, which is like so insane just here like the richest person in the world. But like, yeah, we're buying market position. It's just what happens. That's another one I have mixed feelings right, and by the way, people should read McKenna story because those documents have just a very funny breakdown like the pros and cons of buying. Buying ring in many of the cons like what if this turns into nest, which if you're just the verge cast listeners like it's just like the Keyword Bingo, but it's fine to say, we're buying market position like this isn't the best product out there, but it's the category of video. doorbells is not huge, right? So to by the the market leader in video doorbells is maybe the most rational use of the money. What is the problem that you think the committee was trying to show an address sense of we're just going to market position. Pointing out, they can just do whatever they want and how casual it is, and there really isn't. It's really funny to read an email like that, and we could buy it or we could just copy it or are. We could just watch. You know that was one of the emails that base from someone. Those are just three options you know and it's like just pick and choose you know. Pointed out like a lot. Just that email itself really pointed out just how easy it is for them. They used a lot of that time history to talk about copycat behaviors and to talk about just like you know buying up competitors and it just seeing that all in one little e mail having to do with the ring was like really i. think it was really kind of I opening and especially like useful for the committee. So Amazon got hit a lot for the data collection side of it of copying competitors. bezos did not seem to have great answers there. Right. So that's the. The thing they got in trouble with this. There is that Wall Street. Journal article from like April where employees were literally like, yeah. We dip into data and we use that to guide our own private label products and everybody was like Whoa and Amazon basins. Yesterday said, well, we do have a policy that bans that but giant pointed out yesterday. It's like, okay. So what's your enforcement look like you can have the policy, but like if you don't enforce it, then it's like meaningless. And then yesterday I. Think Paul was like, can you give me a yes or no answer? Do you dip into data and he's like I can't I can't give you. Yes or no, and we're just like we're looking into it. The story had anonymous sources. So that isn't very helpful to us. You know what I mean. So that was one of the main things and that Wall Street Journal article and I think it's the same kind of examples in the committee's documents. They point out specific examples like car trunk, organizers of all things. It's like weird little products like Amazon's like this is a little hot. Maybe we should do that. So I, I think. I, think they made a good case yesterday. Yesterday on that. Yeah. I mean bezos brought up that Wall Street Journal, Article himself twice, and he was like, well, your policy against it. But I can't guarantee never happened. Then there is a strange just didn't come across clear I. Think I know what the committee was trying to get at their like US aggregate seller data when there's only three sellers and then only to sellers? Yes, I. Think what they're getting at is when you're down to the aggregate data of two companies, you heard effectively looking at individual data. What is the problem? They're like the I get what you're doing. You're just reducing the denominator to get to one, but like it, why is that particular problem? Right? Well, none of these. Dipping into individual seller data and looking at aggregate data. That's not a legal. There is no law. This is all voluntary of Amazon. So they have a voluntary policy where like we can't do individual seller data, but they say nothing against aggregate and aggregate what you're getting at eight. Here you is. Does the same thing if it's just like some goofy little product they. They bring up pop stock. It's all the time before pop tops in a moment. Right? There's only like one pop. So company like you know pop soggy, it was kind of an innovative product. It's like well, if there's only two of them and use the aggregate data, you you you have everything you need to know you know about that product line looking aggregate. If that's what you decide to qualify as do you as you're looking through the other Amazon documents and other stuff. So anything jump out at you is something the committee was trying to prove or get at. The questioning seemed very focused on. Like are you using the state at a copy products? Are you buying things? You shouldn't buy. There's one question which I did not understand why came up about DMC. Take downs on twitch and Jeff as just had this look of panic in his eyes. He's like I don't know man I bought Wedge because my kids want to. Do something like that was like the side show stuff, but the real focus here, it just seemed like it was definitely in the marketplace, right? Amazon, everyone came at Amazon for the marketplace. That's what everybody knows him as like they have all these little sides. They got rain. They got Alexa Alexa was one thing too. That was kind of interesting. It's like. Are you buying things like ring to put Alexa into and dislike expand your like Titan Ism as like an Internet Internet connected home. Thing and make that more closed off and walled gardening. That was one thing. But no, it was just focusing on how much power they have to kind of change. What happens in the marketplace to kind of decide what companies in what products are able to come up on the first page of results. You know that's also something that they dug into Google and in something that one of those like themes that kind of ties everything together. We should say they all spend a lot of time talking about counterfeit goods, and why is it Amazon removed? Fake stuff from the platform and how much is it profiting off of you know selling pick rolexes? Is it surprising? The whole foods didn't show up at all they're. Like that is a really massive thing. Amazon owns that. Is it moving into a huge new product category? I think whole foods is not an online marketplace, which was the title of the hearing, not that that restricted anybody from doing anything except that, one of the things Amazon says is we have lots of competition from offline marketplaces, right? Brought up kroger a lot I mean, this is the case he's point. They all made. It seem like they were beset at any moment. They could be crushed by the likes of stop and Shop Right? Like I think the point though was really on the. Digital. Experience Consumers have and like I, don't know Ho-. Foods fits. Into that narrative, especially, because it is itself not dominant like they bought it because you needed to grow in their. Good at that at my question for you on the Amazon stuff was when you think about, we talk about two thirty a lot right like you and I in particular spent a lot time to thirty, which regulates with the platform can do with content. There's not really an equivalent of two thirty for goods on store. Right like there's some case is out there saying like you're liable for what what happens on your online store page, but Amazon doesn't have that like second order of like Messi nece around it that twitter and facebook to with two thirty, I. Mean, it gets invoked a lot for marketplace's, but it's way messier. Well, I just wanted to like this question at counterfeits question about ranking the store like they are even more free than any twitter is to to sort tweets algorithm. Algorithm clear to modern like it just their store. Do you think that they're like that Algorithm transparency? Your wire things ranked. Did you catch a sense that that's where the regulation is GonNa go. So much of the conversation around Amazon really felt like it was individuals sellers being wronged for reasons of Amazon being unresponsive or stealing. It's data. So I don't know it didn't. It didn't seem like a really big focus of the hearing, but it is a huge deal. Yeah. The, digital marketplace frame of this, which is where we have talked to. Cellini. That's where he's going right like facebook and Google very digital. They have like they don't do physical goods. Really. Apple is the APP store. It's all digital goods. Amazon is the one where it's. Front to a lot of physical things, and that is the only place where I can see this regulation needing to make some sort of like major meaningful distinction in I. Didn't see it in the hearing, but I was curious of you caught a glimmer of it. I'm not positive that they have to make a huge distinction there like depending on what they come up with because. So much of this is about their companies and whatever product they produced. The issue is more or less whether or not they're being surveilled and unfairly by targeted and crushed by that data surveillance. All right. We have gone for forty minutes. We should take a quick break. I said I wasn't going to go by company and it happens. So we should come back and talk with facebook Ango. We'll be right back. This is advertiser content. When I say utopia what comes to mind. Birds Chirping lush natural beauty dialed up and vibrant technicolor. Is it within reach. Your world world. World. explained. You are an essential part of the perfect social body. Every Body Matt Place. Everybody happy now while the peacock original series, brave new world takes place in a scientific futuristic utopia. A concept is nothing new Sir Thomas more. I introduced the theory five hundred years ago. But we keep looking for that community identity stability of aldous Huxley's Utopia and not finding it Americans are the unhappiest they've been in decades, and we're increasingly lonely whereas in a utopia. Everyone belongs to everyone else. In nineteen forty-three, the psychologist Abraham. maslow's developed a theory of Utopia. One that allows total self determination in basic terms. maslow's theory says that in Utopia, we decide for ourselves, what we need and how we're GONNA get it in Huxley's Utopia citizens always get what they want and don't want what they can't get. Sounds. Pretty good. Right. Then why can't we make it happen?

But digs into what is really going on underneath the surface, and that's what the weeds is all about I. Matthew Yglesias. Weeds podcast here on the box meeting podcast network. This is podcast for people who really want to understand the policy debates and policy issues that shaping our world.

You could download the weeds on apple spotify or wherever else you get your podcasts. Tracy. When it comes to facebook I turn to you. FACEBOOK is patience consumer of startups as what we've learned. Yeah. But you said something to me yesterday was interesting, which is everyone else's problems are forward looking and it feels like facebook's problems are actually in the past break for people explain what you mean. Yeah. So when Congress is looking at any trust with respect to these four companies for three of them, it's It's sort of about the marketplaces that their operating right now with facebook, the question is much more about should we have allowed it to buy serum? Should we have allowed it to buy WHATSAPP and most of the antitrust conversation that was around facebook yesterday was all about that. What did Mark Zuckerberg know about Instagram, and when did he know it? We wrote a story based on some documents that the house released yesterday. In which facebook has clearly identified instagram as a competitor. In at least some ways and wants to go after it and knock it off the table, and so that's kind of where the focuses their facebook and Burke did get a lot of other questions yesterday, but it tended to be much more about content moderation and things that don't have a lot to do with antitrust. So there was weird section where they asked the face. Face Research APP in the novel, Vpn? Any kind of got lost well, explain what happened and I'm curious reactions. Yeah. So facebook has a bunch of nifty tech tools to figure out what's trending which APPs or the kids using, and so that can essentially have an early warning system if it needs to consider acquiring something or more likely in these days, go out clone it. and. So Zuckerberg was asked about the way that the company uses these systems and if they are anti competitive I, think you know traditional antitrust law probably would not say copying an APP feature is anti competitive, but could lobby written in the future about it shirt I. Think the one that caught me was I mean, this is what I'm. McKenna's points from earlier is like one of the themes here is, are you so dominant that you can collect data that's unfair and then use that to crush or killer competitors, and definitely bought the Inaba VPN to do it. That's true. Now, when I've asked executives at facebook about this, what they'll say is they don't get surprised anymore. When you have three point, one billion people using your apps around the world. You know what links they're sharing, you know what they're talking about. And so you're not going to need some kind of specialized tool to know that WHATSAPP is really taking off. Right. So they would argue that, yes, these tools were useful to them, but you know at their scale, they know what's popular now, which doesn't really seem like addresses, the problem is reached. The fact that we're so big that we're all knowing is maybe not the defense that they sometimes presented as so here's what I didn't get. I thought, Zuckerberg I want to the instagram. What's about who's issues, but on the facebook research front, the data front, they him about this APP facebook research, which you were giving to teens. They were deploying with an enterprise certificate that story broke apple revoke the certificate, and all of facebook's internal APPs went dark, and this is a scandal story after story about it, they went on for two days. So I can I, don't recall that APP? Just how he you know, he remembers the day that all facebook's internal APPS went down and people couldn't go to the cafeteria. I would agree I found that answer. Extremely, ed? Persuasive. that. Do you think that was like actually strategic for him to be like, I, don't know and then come back later and correct the record I do remember when that happened I. Mean. I really don't know I mean also you know during a six hour hearing, it's also possible that you just you get flustered or you miss here something or or something because. Yeah. As as you say, I'm sure he remembers the day that apple turned off their internal APPS I mean. Honestly. Seems like an opportunity to talk about apple's market power, and the fact that you know a day of work canceled at facebook because apple got mad. But I think most of the CEO's didn't go into yesterday a wanted to pick fights with each other. It was kind of sad that they didn't. I was Kinda hoping that Tim Cook take a shot at soccer burger. Point that the other two APP platforms I was expecting it. It was there. It was. There was all there. So cellini ended and he ended the whole meeting with closing statement. He said, some of these companies didn't get broken out. They all need to get regulated in the off too much power that some of them I. don't these breaking up apple. What sort of break. Right like. The division get sent into the corner thing about what it's done. Right. Does should spin out the finder team I've always wanted to. A clean is always that they want to. They want the APP store to be separate from the IPHONE. Basically, that's the thing I always hear. Can't break I. Think you can write some strong regulations but not playing you're on store, right. But like Elizabeth Warren's point was it's cleaner if it's two companies, but it's still a gigantic remedy that I don't think there's a lot of like like consumer or public opinion is going to walk into an Apple Cup I think you'll radio at marketplace. It seems very clear that we says some of them she broken up he is talking about facebook. I have a twenty percent conference level. He might be talking with Google and Youtube as well. But if he's going to say some of the need to get broken up like it's facebook, did you hear anything yesterday that supported that conclusion or Saudi stocks I? MEAN HE I don't remember which Republican it was, but he was like the Obama FTC looked at this and they said it was minding love. Obama. Right. Like. Why would we go back in time to relook at I? Mean, there is a belief and I mean. Somebody who thinks there could be a lot of benefit in instagram and WHATSAPP being different companies from facebook. And the reason you ask. So many questions about that acquisition as you're making the case that it never should have been approved in the first place, and so now you need to remedy it. So that was actually like the entire thrust of the argument against facebook yesterday. I think, you could probably make just as good a case that Amazon after spin out aws, but lawmakers chose not to make that case. Yeah. I think that also gets into. Politics of the acquisition of the time. To his credit is like nobody knew instagram would actually be a success like we made it a success. It didn't happen by itself. I, don't know if the lawmakers. By award, these guys said, but I don't know that he actually made that case very persuasively. and. Who knows I mean? That's like anything could have happened. Right? Cram could've stayed independent and rapidly grown and overtaken facebook like that's something that could have happened. It could have kind settled into a middle zone like snapchat or twitter seems more likely to me although I think probably would have been bigger than those two but. You're never going to know I mean it is true that facebook gave Mike and Kevin it instagram enormous resources. A lot of the reasons why Mike and Kevin sold was because running tiny startup that's blowing up is absolutely exhausting Mike. Krieger. was dragging his laptop all around San. Francisco. Because the servers were melting at all times of the day whenever Justin Bieber. Posted like the site stopped working and they really we need help. Finding a person who can quickly fix this? So we don't have to like that is the reason that they were entertaining these offers and wanted to sell it. So that is also thing that happened. Do you think that that same kind of argument or approach can apply to what's up? What's up basically did not come up yesterday and all the focus on Instagram, but that's the other one, right? Yeah, and we know weirdly a lot less about that acquisition I. Think it's because people in America just have so much less love for what's APP generally. That, it's never seemed as important. What happened to WHATSAPP as what happens to instagram even though WHATSAPP, is used, you know way more, it probably has way more engagement even than instagram does so I don't know why that didn't come up as often. We know there was a competitive bidding war for that as well. Goule. Wanted it as well. You know Mark Zuckerberg made them an offer, they can't refuse. Do you think everyday Google's we should've spent more money on what's whatsapp like this could have been solved. Should have, but Google has been placed under an ancient curse that prevents them from ever making the right decision about any social product. So it was doomed never to happen. It's fun looking through the documents and watching them casually say they should buy facebook dot com. Yeah, that. Point. That is how they talk like the window into these executives just casually being like we should just this thing or maybe not, or we should just copied ourselves and kill it before it gets any traction like it's repeated over and over again last facebook question. This one is like harder to parse because I. There's a chance, it's October is just joking around but. But. He's in many of these emails. He's like the thing about startups, as you can always buy them, which I think the committee thinks is a smoking gun, right? Like facebook's entire plan is to buy the competition to get the data from wherever they get it to say, oh, man, this apps popping, we just buy it and kill it before it competes with us. I. Think he actually said at one point. That's a joke. Yes, he did and I believe that you know it was two thousand, twelve, right? He was probably still in his mid twenties. At that point, the company was a lot smaller like people were joking around like there's more loose talk when companies are younger and I do think. It was it was part of that. I think the more interesting question becomes. Let's say facebook is telling the truth about everything. Let's say they thought it was going to be a successful acquisition, but they never knew it was gonna big as it became today and they invested in it and it got super big. Okay. Well, now, it's as big as it is. Should they be allowed to keep? Keep it or should they be forced to spend it out and if you're GONNA force them to spin it out. What's the argument that you'RE GONNA. Make about why one question that I have a lot is clearly the referral they're gonNa make, and it seems like if you don't have some other reason, we've heard hints that there's some other reason, the FTC scrutinize this that will eventually be revealed. But what you're saying is the antitrust standard at the time, the Consumer Hartman stand, which is still our standard. Says, you have to prove prices will go up both products for free. You're screwed. Right? There's nothing to review because you're not gonNA prove prove that free products are gonNA get more expensive. I think it's pretty unfair if you change the standard and you go back in time and say you missed that standard. So I think there has to be something else there. Well, what was the standard by which at and T. was broken up? Right? Like presumably at and T. didn't used to be that big, and then it just got really big and then they broke it up at least. That's the thumbnail understanding I have of that break-up. Well, yeah. But then reformed itself. Right. But because of lax antitrust regulation, right? Like it wasn't a naturally occurring phenomenon that all those APPS got back to the other or was that just sort of like inattention to capitalism It's like in the seventies and eighties. This is Tim moves book the cursive bigness in the seventies and eighties Robert Bork I can't talk about Robert on this podcast. Are we doing this right now. Robert was very influential judge Appellate Judge Federal Appellate? Judge. And basically moved the antitrust law to the consumer harm standard as part of a movement called and economics. A whole thing Robert. Bork. Mostly famous because he was not appointed. He was nominated Supreme Court by Reagan but they leaked video tape rental history, and then he didn't get nominated and that is where the expression getting bork's comes from. This is all true Netflix's still has to abide by videotape data privacy act is a whole. This is all true when facebook and Netflix had some partners, Nansen? Partnership. To. Automatically share your net flicks, watch history to facebook. They're like pending the change of this law which we are working on Robert Bork. He haunts us all. I'm sorry, I can't believe this much. Yeah I. think that's just like the law changed in the in the seventies and eighties, the standard change. The conversation right now is a very much about changing it back months and months ago, pre pandemic, we had an economist from I. Think it was Nyu Thomas Philippon came on the show, and he was like look you have this natural ab test going on in the world where the European Union when it formed was like, how do we get an economy like America's? So, we'll just take their competition policies pretty good, and at the same time we changed consumer harm standard. So everything you're seeing the EU is basically our old competition antitrust standard in. You can see how active they are in everything. Here's a new consumer welfare standard. Whether you believe, this is actually a functional Ab test given. The state of both governments is up for debate, but that was his point I thought. It was spare can say.
Jennifer Palmieri: Women need to declare their independence from men
"If it's truly possible for a woman to ever be elected to lead this country. Right men were left to reflect on their privileges and women continue to tackle the systemic patriarchy This country was founded on now, four years later, presidential hopeful Joe Biden. Has promised that he will run with a female vice presidential running mate. The suspense grows daily around who his running mate will be. My next guest argues that women must break from the confinement of established standards set by men and instead hold themselves to a different standard altogether. In order to reach positions of influence. So joining me now is Jennifer Palmieri familiar face to those of you who watch a lot of politics. On television. She served as communications director for the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. And was also the White House communications director for president Obama. Now she's president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund and author of a brand new book called She Proclaims Our Declaration of Independence. From a man's world. Jennifer. Great to have you with us again. Welcome back to WN. Thank you, Brian. I'm really happy to be with him. So you're book begins with a nod to the signing of the Declaration of sentiments, the 18 48 manifesto that described women's grievances and demands. Written primarily by Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It called on women to fight for their constitutionally guaranteed right to equality as U. S citizens and independence from men. And you, right? That we are also at a time today where women need to declare their independence from men want to start there and talk about in what ways you mean Independence. Yeah, I wanted Teo. I mean, what I had, you know my realization Wass that As far as when they come in the world, particularly in the last few decades. Next month, we'll celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, and, uh, for decades. We've made a lot of progress, and then we just just butter out. We just keep hitting the same plateau. The last three decades, in particular, obviously experience that Hillary Clinton's campaign But you see it in business, You know, 40 The Fortune 500 CEOs, Only 7% of them are women. You say? You know, we have 75% of Congress. It's still it's still men. And at some point you say, we're not not doing this wrong, right? We're not doing this wrong, but I maybe left. It proved there's something else going on here. Andi. I think that following a man past which I believe we did sort of after women. One suffrage had the right to vote used that as a tool, Teo to sort of, you know, work our way into both politics and the professional world. Um, But, you know, my experience is partly within the Clinton campaign. Following a man's path could only get you so far and I wanted to go back. And learn more about suffrage that fight because I felt that was sort of the last time in America that women came together to try to advocate for their rights. And what can you learn from it? I learned that when women come together and believe in themselves, even though they don't have any power to power of their voice, the tire of the action can affect real change. And you also learn that there's a troubled history there, too, when it comes to race and when white women are not good allies. Two black women, two black people, tio Black Americans, overall that hold back progress for everyone. And to those of the things that the book tries checks for. What did you mean? Just now if I heard you, right? That the Hillary Clinton campaign followed a man's model. So we didn't We did not have all 45 presidents now have been then. So we have ah, image of her head of what That looks like, right? You have a certain bar you have to reach. There's there's um We think they men you know, we think are male leaders have it? There's a certain weight they're certain timber to their voice the way they stand there. Strength that they project there's strength. They project in terms of being the commander in chief. All of these things we have internal lives for, you know, at this point for the country itself for close to 250 years and as individuals, we have our entire life on I think you know, one of things I ask people to do. And the book is imagine what it would be like for men. If women had been in charge from the start, right, if women had always all of our presidents have been women and a man ran, that would be very jarring tow us and I think that that man might try to Try to adapt himself to behave more like a woman. Because even though he knew he was different from a woman Ah, he saw that the women were the ones with all the power And I think this is this is sort of the vice that Hillary found herself in. Woman that ran in 2020. I think it was. I think I think things progress a little bit. It was. We had sort of adjusted in some ways, the scene women in those roles. But, you know, you realize, even though 2020 and very modern world when you consider these things from the scope of history, it's still kind of a rat. It's a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. Clearly a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. United States and, um, you know, I felt that in my own career, I've never felt like a man tried to hold me back. I have had good male mentors all along the way, but still Men I worked with rose faster than I did. But still, I didn't read certain Ashkelon and I looked around. Other women also getting sort of, you know of Lax going. And I had a you know, I used to think I was doing great in a man's world. And then I realize I'm doing great propping up the man's world, but I'm doing it, making it run well for them. We keep producing generation after generation of the majority. World huge majority of positions of power in this country being held by men. And so even the job of a job, But I know that if my realization was like, I kind of, you know, I'm I'm perpetuating this and it's not just blocking women. It's blocking all people of color. I'm getting the power they deserve and It was a radical realization I had and that's My Brecht book. So does that
Hack on famous Twitter accounts raises national security concerns
"Let's see here. What happened over the week. A little thing called a twitter hack. Oh that was wild now. I know for most people. Twitter is not important. Twitter is not. You know a major part of people's lives. facebook is maybe instagram is. Some of the some people like twitter. You know, but really it's. The reason twitter has outsized importance. well, it's a number of reasons. One is because a lot of journalists use it and you know they're always paying attention. As if the state, the outrage storms on twitter make a a difference which they don't. Not at all. The other reason is because the president uses it is It is his chief. I. Think is chief form of communication. With the public. He's actually you know executed presidential decrees on the tweets. So it's important for that reason. If you know if no one else were on twitter, it would be important to follow twitter just to see what the president trump saying. There are other reasons to be on there, but that you know so, it has. An importance beyond its its actual. Importance in the world because you know there's about three hundred million users, but you know in the US maybe I don't know one in five people are even aware of it or use it. My that's that's by gas. I bet it's even smaller than that. However when there is a twitter hack. It's a big deal. and. In fact, it was a little weird. About about one what say one o'clock, Pacific Time Four PM Eastern on Wednesday. All of a sudden. These tweets start showing up. At first is just on Bitcoin. Accounts like by Nance. Hey, in because of Kovic, nineteen I. Want to give back to my community every bitcoin bitcoin. I have to explain I. Guess you probably heard of it as crypto currency, it's a currency. that has kind of a made up value. All currency does but. Kind of made up right now. It's almost ten thousand dollars per bitcoin. you can buy bitcoin with American dollars or other dollars or other you know currencies, or you can generate it. Most people can't and don't have the ability to generate because it takes a lot of power. It's so expensive in terms of electricity that you can only do it if if you like live in a hydroelectric dam. which sounds like hyperbole except that that's where a lot of these bitcoin miners live actually in hydroelectric dams and other places where the cost of energy is low to nothing. So you can't make it that way. Young people can give it to you in exchange. You create a wallet I have a Wallet Bitcoin Wall and I forgot my password, so it's not much good to me. Seven bitcoins in there s a lot of money. But I don I can't get to them. That's all right. They're safes. They're mostly. Every bitcoin wallet has a unique number associated with it. Not Name knotted addressed on a phone number. No, no identifiable information, just a number. So it's widely used by bad guys, hackers and others to exchange value so this tweet on binds bitcoin exchange, said in because a covert I want to give back to my community for every bitcoin. You send this address again this long number this anonymous address. I will send you double back. For. Give me ten thousand I'll give you twenty one. Now, you'd have to be an idiot to do it. Right because come on. Except that all of a sudden, some other very big. Accounts. Start tweeting similar things. The number one account on twitter is Barack, Obama. Followers, his account tweets it. Joe, Biden's account tweets it. Elon Musk tweets it. Wow some big names here. Bill Gates Apple Computer Apple tweets it. Apple's got a lot of money. Because, we really appreciate our community. We'd like to give back tweet. US, send us a a bitcoin. We'll send you to. Up to some people up to bill, Gates that up to fifty million dollars. It's not Bill Gates or apple or the Joe Binder. Barack Obama not all of these about thirty. High Profile verified accounts had been hacked. Obviously of course bright most people would get that. Apparently, it's hard to tell with Bitcoin, but you can look at an address and see how much money's coming around one hundred thousand dollars came in. But. It's hard to tell because you can't tell the source, so it could be the hacker himself. Putting money in from another account to make it look like you just don't know. So wasn't a huge score. How did this happen? Everybody's freaking out now. I, it's pretty obvious immediately. Anybody understands how this stuff works. That, this was a serious hack. Because in the past we've seen account takeovers onesie twosies. and you know. I think he lon Musk's account has been hacked. Other People's accounts have been hacked. You guessed the password, or you know things happen but not this many and not as many high profile accounts that are in all likelihood highly protected. With real security behind them like multi factor authentication. RIGHT IF YOU'RE A. Presidential candidate, for instance like Joe, Biden probably using the strongest security available. Almost certainly. So, it couldn't be that. The password was gaster was weaker, monkey, one, two three and everybody guessed it couldn't be that. So it was immediately apparent, something major and much more serious. was going on. Something like. perhaps. And! We've seen this once before actually several times before maybe. A malicious insider at twitter and employee, perhaps who that would be bad. There was a contractor about three years ago. Who On leaving the company? Disabled President Trump's account for about a minute. With I, mean they caught on pretty quick? Twitter reacted quickly shutting down all verified accounts. Of what we call a brute force protect you know. They just said No. Whatever we're GONNA. We don't know what's going on, so we're just going. And as time has gone by the last few days, we've kind of learned. More and more twitter not been completely forthcoming, but others have. So. There's a group of people out there. WHO TRADE IN! Short twitter handles. They call og original gangster twitter handles usually single letter. Twitter handles. Like at six there is such one. It was hacked. Effect it's really bad. I'm glad I didn't when I sign up for twitter in the in the very earliest days. Say, I want Leo, because I would be a target I didn't use that. He's that Leo LaPorte, but thank goodness because I would have been a target anybody with a really short name and I have friends who have really short names. They're at risk because there's a whole group of people who collect these who trade them and you can sell them for lots of money. These people. Were watching what was going on. And we're in fact, probably connected to the hack. They've actually been in touch. Believe it or not with the New York Times. and. They've showed him screen shots and stuff and they said yeah. We know what went on. We know what went on, and it's a guy named Kirk. Probably not is really all it's great. It sounds like a real name Kirk. A guy named Kirk. WHO and Kirk is not talking to your times, but the people around him are who, probably in twitter admits this socially engineered tricked a twitter employees. Now as we look at, it actually looks like it might be something even more sinister. That somebody got into twitter's slack channel again. Another definition here, slack Zeh. Messaging Platform like what's APP or apple messages? You! Know your text messages, but it's one a lot of companies use. My company uses it for business chat. Apparently, twitter did a very stupid thing. They put. Credentials for logging in. To their admin dashboard. This is you know what they called God. Mode the ability to log into this system. You could change things you could tweet on people's behalves. You could change passwords. This is a powerful tool that should be not available to contractors, not available to low level employees should only be available to the most trusted employees apparently. According to Brian, Krebs and other security researchers and these hacker groups that were communicating with the New York Times. They didn't secure this slack channel. And the credentials. Got Out. And Kirk, who is not well known in hacker channels apparently got access to the Adleman this makes sense the admin dashboard. Because how else would somebody do this so quickly to so many M- much more security accounts. It's also extremely disturbing fortunately. All Kirk did is put up some DOPEY SPAM At least as far as we know, and this is part of the problem as far as we know, some dopey span said, send me money effectively. Nobody fell for that very few. But What else could have done? He could have tweeted out his president trump. Probably we don't know what protections extra protections there are. There probably are some nice account. or other world leaders account saying you know the countdown gun. Nuclear War starts in five minutes. That would be disturbing. It would have a long-term impact they could also, and it's apparently the case. Download all. Previous tweets and even direct messages private stuff, nobody any with any brains uses twitter's private messaging for anything, important or secure. If you have been stopped. Because, apparently, some of that was downloaded. And it by the way wouldn't just be verified accounts high profile. Be Any account. So we don't really know, twitter's trying to figure it out right now. and they have logs and stuff. They may actually be able to figure out what happened. We don't know how much was stolen. It could be the. This. bitcoin scam was just A. MISDIRECTION! Pay No attention to what I'm really doing. We don't know. So. This is a significant issue in many ways. Twitter's fixed it. I. I have about I, don't I'm not a huge twitter percents using it since day one and I about a half million followers. But makes it concerns me and everybody who uses twitter and it should. Because twitter's security has been lax, and is still apparently lacks enough that somebody could walk wander in and do this and tweet on Joe Biden's account and Barack Obama's account. That's a significant problem. Even more significant because the president uses this as his. Bully pulpit. There's some real concern about that. And other world leaders do that. There's some real concern about that. Twitter we'll try to fix this. I think it's very clear you should not any. No one should use twitter for anything important ever again.

The governor and Mayor De Blasio both announced separately today that indoor dining is off the table for an indefinite period. Mayor's statement Pretty straightforward. We can't go ahead at this point in time with indoor dining on indoors is the problem warm or the science is showing up more and more the same message from Governor Cuomo, who says it's a New York City on ly modification.

Twenty to fifty miles of mountain biking trails, and I've been mountain biking back there for well over.

Cove in nineteen, just hit It was back in March I. Believe you know we're now. April may June. We're now. It's three months later. Do you have any thoughts on kind of where we are right now with.

It looks like we're paying the price I think next week will really tell the the virus. The virus doesn't listen to. to anybody the virus has its its own pace and what it's going to do. But there has been something that I'm particularly keen on because there's fits right into. The the lifestyle that we want ARC agency. Cardiovascular Disease Fall. And just to give you a little bit of background. This has to do with with nitric oxide and we may have talked about it. Somewhat last time, but I think it bears repeating because yeah, sometimes, the whole concept is not that easy for people to grasp the first time. And it was a number of actually a decade or two ago, maybe more. That was found out that earlier virus. Could be killed by nitric oxide, which is obviously a molecule of gas. And so at the present time there are two academic institutions spoke. The Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. and. Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio. Where they have. A. Setup a study where patients who come in with a coronavirus. Will be first exposed thirty minutes of inhaling nitric oxide. And that's repeated three times a day. They're also doing the same. With. With. The healthcare workers who will get thirty minutes of animation of nitric oxide when they arrived at work. And thirty minutes identification again when they arrived from today.

Meat is currently the fifteenth most downloaded APP on the APP chart compared to zoom which has been number one for weeks. There's a reason so many people are using zoom. It's dropped it easy to start started meeting. Your guests. Don't have to register to participate and the experience looks and feels great. There's just one nagging issue. Security has been lax. You've heard of zoom bombing. We're nasty people invade your meeting and pedal pornography and profanity. This happened because users did not take the time to not allow people to share their screens but enough of it happened for people to start reaching out and looking for better alternatives. Zuma's free but it has limits on how long the meeting can be and how many people can be in the room unless you pay starting at fifteen dollars monthly. Google meet starts at six dollars a month in goes up from there but Google has made the program free through September. So what do you get well? Nothing beats inviting people to a meeting directly from g mail but from there you get a bare bones meeting program sure you get security and the ability to share your screen correctly but little else you can record the meeting but the video gets saved your Google drive and it counts as part of your monthly storage which Google charges you for zoom. Lets you download the recording to your hard drive. Meat is missing some of those nitty filters we come to love consume like adding a different background or blurring the background which you can do with Microsoft teams and Skype what you do get our captions which are pretty cool if you need it and actually kind of amazing Google offers a real realtime rundown of everything we're

"I think of LAX, and I think of traffic just being stuck trying to take someone to the airport, or drop them off or pick somebody up, it's just hard to get in and out of there anyway. And I wonder if they make the theme building something more of a tourist attraction, whether that would make it worse. Well, the good news is that the airport is part of their master plan. Implementation is actually most of the traffic will not be coming into the airport anymore that all of the passengers will be dropped off outside of the airport, and take a people mover system into the into the airport itself. What do you think should happen to this thing? I mean obviously you want to preserve this, this icon ick building. What should go inside of it? Well, I think the good thing about the request for interest at the airport issued is, it's not just the theme building. It also includes the original tower for looking at all the airplanes coming in. But also, it has an additional space, where new construction could occur that could be a hotel. There could be some other kind of silly. See there. So I think it's interesting that the airport wanted to look at this as broadly as possible, and not just do a request for another restaurant operator using something will come of it. Or do you think it'll just language because it's just been sitting there for a long time. I think this is a good first step. And we'll see what happens the conservancy, obviously, Linda's a place that tries to preserve historic places, all across the area and you probably have a keen interest in what happens to the theme building. What will you guys be looking for? We will be looking to make sure that the theme building stays as the icon that it is, which is not to say that the change can't happen or they wouldn't be new construction. But that it does remain sort of the crown jewel in the airport. Linda Dishman.

We're good to have you back here. So you've been busy. What were you what were you guys doing this weekend? We're, we're we're yet. Because you're banged up. Dude, say you're pretty banged up lift in. You got a black guy here. But you're with us, we appreciate that. What were you got? How did that happen this week? We were this weekend. We were down in Tijuana, Mexico for a triple a house show. And before that, like the day before we were like an England and then before that we were in Texas like the past. Has just been nonstop back and forth when it comes to the, the travel, schedule, how much is that picked up? Was there a time when you went, oh this pick this old crap work in every week and a work, and in UK work in Canada, work, and in Mexico, was there a time you remember in the last year or two and you said, okay, we're here, we're, we're, we're working? Yeah. I think. Let's say two years ago, the past two years has been just insane in everything is just picked up. Tremendously has been awesome. Pretty much as soon as we signed with impact. Our schedule is picked up substantially. We, we honestly, we don't even drive anymore, which is awesome. Because we used to drive twelve nine hours, eight hours, seven hours, five hours all the time to shows, and now it's maybe we all I think the only show we drive forwards beyond wrestling, because they're Massachusetts. And there's about a three hour drive everywhere else we have flown out to and it's awesome. To finally get to that point, where people fly us out, and we don't have to. Well, I don't have to drive. He doesn't drive just sleep so. Yeah. The paying dues process and over. I mean, I've, I've seen you guys for a long, long time. And you know, you're in ring ability is amazing. But you could see it for guys like you, your talent got you over your connection with the people. And then it happens just like that you get signed to impact wrestling, and you I don't wanna say you fell into, but you were searched out by Conan to replace LAX. It pops you guys and then it's just your off. And I'm telling you, you're going to turn around and you're gonna be forty eight years old. And he's like, wow, what a hell of a ride. And, and that's what I love about it. You not again. I know you guys both very, very personally. I know for you. You told me Santana that, like you had a real job. And then you're like you know what? I'm investing in me. I'm quitting my real job, which I can't wait for you to tell what you did. And to go out there and become a pro wrestler. What's crazy is. It's funny that you bring that story up because, you know, on the way down here, take the to train down from the Bronx. And I took the exact same route that I would take every day to work, and I pass by the same work building that I worked at in the whole, I worked literally across the street at eleven fifty five and just this whole morning. I was thinking to myself, it's crazy. That just three years ago, I would take this trip every single day and be miserable and have to come sit in office and all that stuff. At now I'm taking this trip to go sit in a studio with Tommy dreamer, and as the longest reigning tag team champions impact history. And like it's pretty dope. Just tell the people have to wear it was. But what used to do? I used to be a conference coordinator for law firm. Yeah. Man, he's a real, real person sit around and be was like Corp. People like you can't, but we just want to beat the hell of you throw. We won't we'll conference quarter like what is what does that would pretty much I would pretty much schedule and set up meetings for lawyers? So you've got to do all the fun conference calls and all that. Can you hear me? It's muted and all that, not better. I watched your documentary on the fight network and you talked about, like where you guys came from and your story. And how your upbringing shaped TASR you are characters evolve over time, do you still have pieces of that in you? Do you feel like it's important to be kinda connected that both of you can kind of answer this year. You know, I'll start using to tell like where you came from, you could tell people about that a little bit. They could see him in the dock put how that shaped who you were, and maybe who you are today. It. It's crazy. Because I, I look back at the person I used to be in, like damn. I was really that person like in I you know. I did a lot of bad things that I regret in my life. You know what I mean? But of course, it got me to this point, ensured me, a better person, and I learned from these things, and I got older, and wiser and more mature and stuff. But. Listen to that. That's called life. Yeah. When you have children that changes your life, hell you. There are certain moments where you're like, man, I can't believe do that. But those are things one, you do it in your guys case survival debt hundred. You didn't grow up in the nicest of neighborhoods, you had to do stuff to help you survive every day, hell going to school every day is a fight. So, and then once you it's called getting older and learning from your mistakes, and stuff like that, man, I it's there's not one person out there who's not thinking in the best is like for me. I try to pass my knowledge to other guys. And then you guys do the same because I remember the first time I saw you at Haussa glares like man, you guys are pretty good. Hey to this do this. But it was like, whoa, these guys want it. And but every mistake that you may you learn from it, and you move forward yelling that is called life. Yep. Impact TV tapings Thursday and Friday, Melrose ballroom Queens, New York. Slamma versus Sunday on July seventh in Dallas impact. Wrestling dot com for tickets and info. Coming into impact wrestling, you said how, how that's brought you to new heights and it's obviously put you in a big spotlight. But you guys still go to places I feel like beyond is a place that really helped make your name. How important you've been on uncharted territory Wednesday nights? You've been on that. I think you're still going to be on that, right? Coming up here soon. How important is it for you to still go back to a place like that so important at I working beyond wrestling, specifically made us attacking that we are today? We started getting our, our breaks really early on with beyond wrestling and getting in there with the right people. We wrestled the American wolves very early on and just wrestling dominance twenty minute match. We learned so much. I'm trying to think who else. I remember Dan, Dan berry and Bill car yet, relate. What was your guys wrestling name before you IFP? Oh, yeah. He textures a hey, you have any room for. E. Y. F B O. And I was like, what the hell? Did you say this wrongly like no? And but Yemen. You like we said you learn from you experiences. There was a lot of teams at helped you even like how Conan Conan is like a legit mentor to you guys. I present. And if you think about the road warriors, who they say, was their life manager, Paul L ring, kept them straight, kept them on, you know, help them with this help them that for me. I'm always in your guys year, like don't do this ever again because you're better than that, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But that's wrestling, ladies and gentlemen. And if you are on the Indies, these are two guys who came up the right way from, you know, red school house of glory paid their dues. And now I mean, think about two kids from the Bronx, literally, flew to the UK to Mexico to the states or flying around everywhere, and soon, you'll be in first class because you're hopefully using all your frequent flyer? And you'll be sitting in first class and every. Fly just being like Helge and everyone will look at you and be like cool, those guys or they'll recognize you. I love that. I'm the biggest knob when I'm in first class on the that's right. I'm Tommy dreamer. You did it the right way. And that's how it should be. As you look at your careers and look back and I always like asking this question. We know we've seen the were watching snuff here from your documentary, the barbed wire match the against Lovie, e the obviously full metal mayhem and all that we've seen you guys work. A variety of different styles. Give me somebody who's influenced you who's not like you guys, whether it be in promos or someone man, I wanna wrestle like that guy or that girl is there. Somebody that's not like you guys, but you still take an influence from Bret. The hitman Hart to me he was. He's my, my number one is my icon. He's the guy who got me into wrestling, and it's crazy. 'cause like mice are style and what we do is totally up. That's you know what he does. But yeah that's, that's the. Ortiz. You've got a guy or, or people are tag team or something, you know, I'm trying to think that that's not like us. I mean, I would say characterize or one of my biggest influences Christopher Daniels falling. Wow. Okay. He's number one. I remember going to Indy shows very early on and going to like ring of honor's back in the day and just watching them live. And I just the biggest thing by Christopher Daniels is. He's very footwork. The footwork is phenomenon is always is been something that's attracted me to wrestling just you don't even have to be exactly the most athletic guy. But when you have the footwork in the timings there, it's amazing. I recently saw a match with Dennis stamping. Who was it? Rick martel. Wow. Yeah. And then stamp footwork is known to man. Just it in the ring, and his timing, and everything. And just little things like that is always made me fans of people. He's on the trampoline, guys. He's waiting for. Dennis stamp, a lot of people don't realize like he was like a top guy for a long, long time. But he made it for my generation, your generation of people where the guy who is once again, doesn't get booked, not how important do you feel? I mean, I know you're growth, tag team wrestling, obviously one day. Tag team. Wrestling doesn't mean that much in w if w gives you a call back. Eighty w tag team wrestling's prominent impact wrestling tag team wrestling's prominent. That means the world to me because I as a fan, but as two guys who you literally have to think, as one when it comes to bookings, all that stuff your decisions in your life. How much is that of importance to where you wanna go and what you wanna do in your life? Huge. It's, it's a huge importance. Yeah. I mean we, we wouldn't we're not putting all this work and to not be the best tactic in the world. I mean that's really our goal. We say it over and over again. And there's a lot of people in for that conversation. But as long as we're, we're in the conversation, even if people are crapping all over us. We're all about as long as we're in the conversation, and that, that's all we wanna be wanna be in the conversation. We want to be considered when, when it's all said and done. And, and we hang up our boots, even though we don't wear boots. But when when we say it's done, we want. People to, to have that argument. And that's what we've always said since the beginning since we started getting together and doing this whole tax thing was, you know, wasn't to become famous or make a ton of money or any of that we just wanted to become one of the best, and we've said it time and time again, we still continue to say it, like, that's our, our main objective, you know, like because becoming one of the best at what you do will last forever. You know, money, money, and everything you know that should you when you die. You don't take that with, you know what I mean. But when you're the best at something that after you're gone, that'll stay forever. Obviously, you said, you quit your job. And this is what you guys do is that now something where you do. Change your thought process. Art, I am making enough money to make this my career and make this, my life is that when the, the thought like that comes up is that when it really starts like all right now, making the money now, want to make my Mark is that is that kind of a turning point for you guys when it got to that one hundred percent like, when I when I quit my job. I. It was maybe three months before we actually gone signed in. I quit my job. And I was like this wrestling thing has to work. Now. I have a family. I have a young daughter have a wife that, you know, they all depend on me and you know there's bills and there's a bunch of things that needs to be taken care of. And I'm on big Papi at home. You know what I mean? I was like this wrestling thing has to work now. And thankfully, you know it it paid off. And we were those three months men when, when I quit my job, those three months were hell on the road. Because we were grinding it out. Like, I think those were the hardest three months we've, we've ever worked because we were grinding it out, and we were just trying to make a enough money so we could pay our bills. You know what I mean? And thankfully paid off for me. We wrestled defy in Seattle. I watched this match and I watched on the crowd. And what I saw this is the highest compliment I told you this. I saw to Eddie Guerrero. With your charisma with the way you worked, and it was just like myself, but I can't do what you guys do you guys still go all out? Even. That's why you got a shiner, and you were just on a, a house show here in, in Mexico. You guys go all out because it's the fans social, your hunger and your passion. That's why I do feel you will go down. And the as one of the greatest tag teams because everybody talks about it. It's an you think about like spots impact wrestling, you've done everything and impact wrestling, and you're still.

"But then, when did he become the next level when he had big daddy, cool, right? As his bodyguard, so that was his heater, the wrestling business. If you look at every Booker will always book people as an extension of what they see themselves fences, a big jacked up, dude, thence, always has had his big jacked up dudes as champions, from hulk HOGAN, Brock Leser, the ultimate warrior. It's also a formula that works for him. So how do you and I listened and I watch on social media, and I'm in agreeance when the businesses down who does? Vince, usually go to his workers, the Bret Hart's the Shawn Michaels, the stone cold, Steve Austin's. So it's that mix. But that's how it's always been, you know, we're just down in Nashville. They about booking Jerry Jarrett, Jerry. Jared who'd he always have smaller guys working territory, the Crockett's smaller guys, the only times where people didn't use wrestlers because of their look slash, you know, muscles all that stuff was dusty Rhodes, right and Paul Heyman. They just book it for what they could draw money with. But again, you can't tell that to a guy who's outlasted every territory where your full formula is wrong, Vince, the fans want to see it. I wanna see it but until either there's a change. So the best fit may be for them to get called to the main roster, eventually would be in a group, because they could be very, very DX like right? And W O ask, and I think that might work better for. Guy like coal, because we saw the match he had with Jani multiple matches. The guy can can go with anybody in have a outstanding. In ring wrestling, matches regardless if he's a face, or a heel, and he can wrestle and look legitimate via his wrestling is that someone with a group that maybe should change his style or the way they book him a bit. Maybe he's more of a chicken shit kinda guy with a group behind him. Would that work better for him on the main roster considering his size? It's really whatever he's primed out to be if you think of annex, t what it's supposed to be supposed to be a developmental system to get you for Ryan roster. But yet you don't have the quality of matches when you come up to the main exact little talking about. So, and then you have to think about Ken, you get over in a three minute segment, or a three minute match as opposed to your long drawn us up. The answer is, yes, you can if given that opportunity. And how it's the best way to seize that opportunity. You know, it's funny when DX came along, it was an amazing group. But like an if the underdog the, the biggest underdog in wrestling was ex- popped up. And if anyone has ever met ex puck, you look at him XBox, a big dude. And he was considered the small underdogs to think of that perception. And it's, it's just it's a whole other system. And if you playing if you're playing for the Dallas Cowboys, it's a different system if you're playing for the giants or, you know, when you're traded people always say, hey, maybe a trade is good for them Sonny gray of the Oakland Athletics oth ever, the Yankees need in the team. They get him. He's crasher. He goes to Cincinnati, he's doing better. So I it's just it's, it's such a hard hard thing. If you look at again, the beauty of all the wrestling the young bucks, Cody, they know who they are. They're given time for what they're doing. That's kind of what we used to do in EC w. And it's so far a system proven that it's working its perception. It's how you present anything. And that's I'm just on. I look, I would love Adam Cole and undisputed area if they were to come up together the exact same group that could have outstanding wrestling matches that could be smarmy heels that could be underhanded, but also then back it up in the ring. I'm just trying to look from okay? How is this going to work? We don't have another annex t misstep coming to the main roster. It is that a way to kind of pivot a little bit. And go okay if we gotta work as you said, a three minute segment, you know, is there a little cheating to win? Is it not Adam Cole having a an in ring classic for fifteen minutes because we know he's not going to get those opportunities. Is that a way to find the happy medium where you keep the group together you treat them as yields? They cheat to win. It's not necessarily, what he's been doing for his career, because he is such a great wrestler. But is that the happy medium to make Vince happy and go? Oh, yes, this group is credible. This is the best way to do it. Even if that means from fan's perspective of the match quality isn't quite what we're used to an XT. It's, it's an interesting take. Here's he AJ styles. Right. Hop guy, what why isn't AJ styles to oh, five live guy, you know why? Because AJ styles has learned how to be a top guy from his years and impact, new Japan pro wrestling than to the WWE and his injuring ability is what got him there. But then it's also his presence on the microphone and AJ wasn't always a good talker. If you look at the talent that have survived, and when I say, survived Ramos stairs, the greatest underdog to, but he does moves like Ray mysterious. Right. No one could work like Ray mysterio still to this day. Same with AJ styles. And there's people who get lost in the shuffle for, for various reasons, and then I mean, there's only and I say this all the time when people like, hey, I want to work your shows. I wanted to there's only so much matches, you can have there's only there's a three hour show. How do you feel it might gonna fill it with the unknown guy or am I gonna fill it with because it's all about ratings? Once you get to television men. It's, it's a fight and a battle. So that's why I say, maybe you should just be happy where you're at hell. If e c w was still around, I'd probably still be there because I knew who I had to be I had control. I had control of my character. I made me happy. And you know what we saw in Moxley is give us a little bit of creative freedom in annex t they have more ways lengthwise matches time right to be creative, and that means a lot to a lot of wrestlers, I'll almost all of them. That's the thing, though, is how do we fix this? That's what I'm trying to get at here is I'm trying to look at it from that main roster angle. I don't want to. I'm just trying to be realistic is how do we fix this? How do these guys keep getting lost in translation? How do we make sure that, that transition actually works? Part of that is a story. There's gotta be something there, there's gotta be a plan. You can't try how do you fix this? In a sense of when you're also telling somebody that doesn't think it's broken. And how do you tell a person who just received a billion dollars that four his programming that it's broken? Earl I'm saying my point is to get into Vince is, is how do we, how do you play Vince? That's my point. You could be the greatest worker in the world. But he just has to see something in you. That's professional wrestling. Paul Heyman saw something in me that Vincent men not so much. I could literally look at you and say man, you're the you're the best. You're my heavyweight champion and you could be like Tommy, I'm not arrested. Yes, you are. And then tomorrow it's like why is this guy champion? You said he is, and he'd say, no, no. I didn't and then oh, make them announcer. You renounce all along. Right. It's that crazy at times. But it's, it's just what triple, h he's helping run an XT or if he's running on exte-. He see something in you. How can he say man? This guy was my greatest champion. He drew all the houses down an XT, and then really what's exte-, if you think about it annexed he has done five takeovers. They don't twenty-five. They celebrated their five year anniversary. That's five shows a year as opposed to Vince is nine million shows. Yeah. Much. And I also don't know if people on the next t- roster can keep up that pace for every single if you were if they did like a tornado I'm sure those people are there exhausted. They're also young, most of my younger. So I it's the it's not even getting lost in the shuffle. It's it's having all your players. It's having all your teammates go out there, perform to the best of their ability, and some may fit for the right reasons. I'm not I could I could probably form a roster of people who are not used on the main Oma goodness doesn't even I there's also, there's people annex t to oh that. I don't think people understand how big of a lake. Three hundred. A hundred but it's people we haven't seen that are getting trained, the ground up. There are people that we know and love.

"Oh i set out to create videos just for facebook a lot of other people were taking youtube videos putting them on facebook which was fine but i was really designing them specifically for the platform and working hard at it and that's what allowed me to create show many videos with so many billions of us how many are you up to now the last i think as of last year year and a half ago you're over two billion yeah right now it's getting harder to say i'd say somewhere between three point five and five billion video views the reason it's getting harder to say is because more and more i've given other facebook pages permission to upload my videos in exchange for tagging my page also there's lots of facebook pages that illegal upload my content they might get one ten million views before i'm able to find it in do a copyright takedown so that those are not searchable the ones that i've taken down and the ones that other pages use are very difficult to search out which is why right now have to put the number at three point five to five billion video views now those are the video views of my videos where i'm the one individuals also more recently i've started a facebook watch page actually i started four of them one of them features my friends it's called rick lax's friends and within just a month or two that one racked up another one to two billion views where last month i saw we were the the number one influence our website on the facebook tubular rankings for influencers and i think the number is going to be even bigger when when the february number comes out so it's it's getting to just be really crazy with these numbers in the high billions.
