Stumbling block: the battle over WeChat
"A new battle is shaping up in the legal wrangles around. Social Media APPS operating in. America. The trump administration's attempt to block we chat and Tiktok from American APP. Stores was overturned by a federal judge on Sunday. Yesterday, America's Commerce Department said it would appeal. The wildly popular video sharing Tiktok has been the subject of jockeying from American firms for ownership after President Donald Trump said he would ban it unless CEOS was agreed. It can't be controlled for security reasons by China too big too. Invasive and it can't be and here's the deal I don't mind if whether it's Microsoft or somebody else a big company secure company, very, very American company by it. That seemed to be solved on Saturday when he approved a deal involving Oracle and Walmart. But that still left, we chat a platform with a huge following in China and among the Chinese diaspora if you as battling TV use of which had that would ask. For examples, I can use the. In. The US Li Tang is Chinese but lives in New York Bats. The hub was blocking China's. Savings so The government binding dvd from using the reach hats not means my connection with China is totally being cut off. The administration's wish to block it entirely now lies with the courts, but that battle will be very different from the one over Tiktok. This was going to cripple these we just in America for about three and a half million Chinese Americans who the majority of its users and the California judge has sort of paused this in order to examine. Around freedom of speech in doing this, how Hudson is the economists Asia Technology correspondent. The ruling kind of acknowledges that while there may be national security questions, it doesn't appear immediately that Aban is the only way to deal with those questions and the ban does appear to impinge upon the freedom of speech of those Chinese Americans, and so it's kind of a we're gonNA take a moment here in to check how legal this is and that makes sense because nothing like this has ever happened before. So in in what way What what are the rights that are that are under threat here? Well, it's pretty broad brush. We shot is kind of everything up and both in mainland China and and in America people, use it, use it for loads of different things they use to send money to their families. They use it obviously to communicate to the most obvious analog. There is something like what's up but also has personal finances. It has news it's kind of like. A little internet in a box and for a lot of people that's the whole Internet, and so that's why cutting it off is such a risky thing and yet the fact that it's sort of all of the Internet in a single APP is particularly important in China where not only are other services. Particularly Western services blocked Yukon download them from APP stores in China, things like twitter and facebook and what's up, but the communication on we. Chat itself is censored according to the Chinese government sort of prescriptions and so in a way, this freedom of speech argument is actually a question of whose freedom of speech you know do we want Americans to be free from Chinese censorship or do we want them to be free to use a service that they want to use? It's a it's a difficult question and so on. What grounds is the trump administration trying to ban it. Well, the stated reasoning is that we chat presents a national security risk to America and to American people. As with Tiktok the idea is that data about American sort of intimate data communication with their families. Businesses can be harvested through we chat and sent back to the Chinese government for various purposes. The other concern is that we got sensors conversations on its APP and both of these have grounds. In fact there there's research from the group. Called the citizen's lobby in Toronto which does showed that we chat is censoring various kinds of communication, not just in mainland China but all around the world for its extra China, which users. But there's a more skeptical angle to this on the government's motivation, which is that being tough on China looks good for trump in the run-up to an election and it puts Joe Biden in a corner to sort of force him to take position on closeness with China. To how does the discussion around we chat fit into the the rather longer running one about Tiktok the difference between the two of them is that TIKTOK has American investors tiktok has its roots in the acquisition of an American company, and so that gives America sort of jurisdiction over to talk because America's always had control over investment in the United States, and that's the kind of starting point for the examination of Tiktok and the administration's talk on talk we chat doesn't have that. We chat doesn't have any American acquisitions that formed it. It's a much older piece of technology and it's much more sort of purely Chinese. So the only way that the administration has to attack tiktok is through this very unusual executive order that resulted in a list of transactions from the Department of Commerce. That again important to remember doesn't have a precedent and so you know when we're looking at what this the results of this temporary stay from the judge in California will be. It's very hard to say because nothing like this is awesome before. So in in that regard, the long run outcome of this won't be the kind of division and selling jockeying that we've seen about Tiktok no, there's no latitude for that. I mean the fact is as well that we chats three point five, million users in America doesn't represent like gigantic sort of social media growth opportunity that tiktok one, hundred, million users, a brand new APP that you know all the kids. Are On that's a much more exciting proposition for companies like Oracle at Walmart that are you know supposed to be taking stakes in? TIKTOK. But the other way in which these two things are joined up is in the American government's increasing efforts to control the kinds of things that happened on the Internet and this isn't just about versus China America versus China is kind of catalyzing a much much bigger discussion about what happens online and who gets to be in charge of that. But all of this seems to be getting away from the you know free on splintered on almost entirely unregulated Internet that America pioneered. Yeah. It undeniably is is just a factual observation to say that this source of activity very top down very directly political. You know trumped basically in charge of these things and and a group of bliscoll allies starts to look. A lot like the way that China does business online and I guess that's not necessarily a problem at Priori. But it's definitely a change in the way that America does its business and it is important to remember that it's not like America. Star should this to China has not allowed loads of different American services in for a very long time and you know one. Potential. Outcome of this is that you'll see the people who really need these services using them sort of illicitly. So you start to get a kind of grey market for digital services where your ability to route around the controls that your government puts on. You dictate your ability to access the services you need, and that's probably a bad thing. Hell, thanks very much for your time. Thank you Jason.

Emmys 2020: Who won big at the first virtual ceremony
"Emmy's happened last night. The last couple days I want to say like through last week, there was some of the you know, technical Emmys and Creative arts Emmys and they've all been I've been seeing like the results of those, but these were the actual Actors and actresses and shows and You know the hole, but it was It was virtual, right? Yes. So every I think that they They actually put a show together to do the Emmys. Um But the other ones that I think we're just getting. I'm sure there was some kind of ceremony on zoom or something. But I don't know that those ones were televised. They might have been. No, I mean, look, I didn't I Maybe you mentioned it. Maybe I read. Maybe I didn't. It was a shock to me at whatever time nine o'clock last night when I started seeing the news roll through, and I was like Emmys. You talked about it a little remember? It was, you know, because Jimmy Kimmel was hosting and so there was some talk, but I play police. Li forgot about it and the whole thing so I didn't see one second of it. Oh, yeah, no. And, frankly, these days because of you, Khun DVR things I'd never sit and watch things in real time anyway, so Because who wants us in just to put the others on When I organize S O. The big winner last night is Schmidt's Creek. It's not the name of the show, but right The clothes. They were saying it on TV because I did see a clip after that. They were saying the word, but I don't want you don't want no trouble with you. Just don't I considered it. You know, it spells have pointed out that every time they say it, they had to put the actual words upon these people can read it with. Oh, right. You see, It's not what you think There's an extra tea and they've thrown at sea in there, okay? So I'm just gonna say Schmidt's creek because I'm with you. You know, whatever. I just guess Monday's gonna be hard enough, right? Yeah. What's our theme? We don't want to. We don't want no trouble. That's right. I keep forgetting the better. That's our theme. Well, since I should write that down here, put it up with all my little, you know, daily affirmations. So the Emmys was virtual And Schmidt's Creek swept in all this is it's actually quite amazing because it has never won an Emmy in any other season. Currently they're grand total of Emmy's up till this season when they took him all zero. It doesn't It seems to be a show that we used to have a million of them. And not that, you know. Ahh, that name in particular is obviously means that's a cable show, right? I mean, it's just It's not your Big four or whatever. But it's just a sitcom, and it's fun and it's and it's not that You could miss it, and you wouldn't care. But you could also sit down and watch four episodes on any given night and be like, Wow, that was light. It was easy is their thread that you follow along with? Yes, it's the family that has moved. Uh, I won't tell you the whole story. But yes, there's a story behind Why they're in this motel and Right off super rich. It's only that I find a just a life. Oh, poor things. Is that a Netflix show? It doesn't even say here. Oh, yeah, It's a Netflix. Yeah. So they won nine Emmys for their sixth and final season, including best comedy Siri's. It's a new record for most wins in a single season for a single comedy. Marvellous. Mrs. Mazel had had the record. They said it in 2018 with eight and then they got eight more in 2019. And I don't know if this means that Mrs Mazel was just completely shut out. Oh, end because all the comedy awards seemed to have gone to Schmidt's Creek. The cast swept the acting categories, and that's the first time a comedy Siri's has done that Eugene Levy and Catharine O'Hara won best actor and actress and Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy, one supporting actor and actress. And they're saying here that's never happened. So congratulations to them. Daniel Levy also set a record for most wins for an individual in a seat in a single season with four because he also got trophies for writing and directing and Best comedy Siri's because he's a producer. So he actually technically that four Just for himself personally. Zero m. He's heading into the night. They never had any kind of incredible. But I guess you know, with my cell dominating in the last couple of seasons would be hard for anyone to rack up any numbers. They also set a record last night at the Emmys for most wins by black actors, including Regina King and Yaya Abdul Mateen. Ah, The second for watchman. Ouzo Duba for Mrs America. And Zendaya for euphoria. She's also the youngest Emmy winner in this category. Outstanding lead actress for drama. Stop me. If you have pulled any audio for any of these things in particular, I pulled some furs and die a winning it Isa from Oakland, apparently which is why we wanted to make sure we've got her on. So here she is reacting. Yeah, it is her reacting and she says a couple of things, but just there's there's a party behind her. So I know that I just want to say thank you to the TV academy to all the other incredible women in this category. I I admire you all so much. This is, um Oh, this is pretty crazy. Didn't really crying, Okay? I know this feels like a really weird time to be celebrating. But I just want to see that there is hope in the young people out there. I know that our TV show doesn't always feel like a great example of that. But there is hope in the other people, and I just want to say to all my peers out there doing the work in the streets. I see you. I'm are you I Thank you. And yeah, thank you so, so much. Um, this is thank you. And, of course, is through zoom. So right. Well, everyone was zooming in S O. She's the youngest any award winner for outstanding lead Actress for drama. So congratulations, Twos and Dia.

I want to say the great American hero. I don't know what she's in the great American. Ah, SOS and Dia. Congratulations to her. Eddie Murphy and Maya Rudolph one for Saturday Night Live, I guess for guest appearances and Ron Cephas Jones for this is us Eso Black actors Big night of record for most wins by black actors at the Emmys last night. The ceremony itself was obviously very different. Jimmy Kimmel hosted in an empty arena. Tried to fool us with crowd reactions from past ceremonies. Was anyone some of that? Yeah, sure. I'll watch a little of that. Oh watchmen. Also what Jerry Falwell Jr was into Flashing people appreciating and there's a flash of him in the audience. Then how much hilarious here that would mean that no one is in the audience. That would mean that I'm a lump here all alone. You'll see them. They turn the lights up. Just of course I'm here all alone. Of course. We don't have an audience. This isn't a mag a rally. It's the Emmys. Instead of a live audience.

Oh, okay heads and there's Courtney Cox, Courtney's there. Of course I'm here. We live together. You do know there's a lag. Yeah, We've been roommates since 1994. But I don't know is it is this live TV? Both of you very well done. It's super cute. But the awkward, you know, three seconds of science, retired ruins everything before it does. We're very well acquainted with the awkward three seconds of silence, ruining everything. That is the life we're living right now. Anyway. Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox and Lisa could row whether she just jetted home after 60 ft. Away appearance on the show the awards, though, as they handed these out So I'm not sure how exactly this happened. If only the people who were actually getting the awards had people in has Matt suits outside their homes. No, it seems that Ah, they had everybody on standby like you'd have somebody in front of your house and has been with the award, but you might not win. So that way, everybody still kind of Were they holding? Just like a box. So you didn't know if there was any in it or not. Or that there were things that they were popping out of boxes, too.

Ah, they were doing the awards were delivered to those locations by people in has Matt suits, and they say someone had to be on hand for every so there was a guy hanging out in Has Matt suit whether you won or not, Some people actually took a visit.

Um, yeah, I don't have any questions, but I do. Look without trying to sound like I'm patting ourselves on the back because I'm not trying to do that. I give credit to anybody who's trying to do a show right now. Absolutely. It's a pain in the butt, and you'll see why they could absolutely see why they went through with it. But I could also see if they said not this year, everyone where does it go ahead? Mail you your prize and Here's the announcement work and that and the example the best example of it is that three The five second lag between the friends and less like Jesus. What is that? That's that's live. That's national TV. That's international TV right now. Well, that's you know, that's the world. We're living in pin, right? Everything sucks. The best variety sketch. Siri's went to Saturday night live and actually have a little bit of news about that. The full cast from last year is coming back this year. Usually there are at least some changes, and there were rumors that Kay McKinnon was going to leave. And she's got a career outside of this, but season 46 is starting October 3rd. And it's coming back to Rockefeller Center studio for the first time since the shutdown. They are going toe put all kinds of safety protocols in place, but it looks like we're going to get actual I'm sure will be no audience. But it will be live apparently, and that will happen there at their normal studio. So they say. The last time there was no caste turnover between seasons was 07 when the 33rd season began with the ensemble intact, So everybody who you liked last year and everybody who didn't like last year We'll be back. That season 46 in playing Joe Biden. On Saturday night Live will be Jim Carrey. Oh, wow, really adding a big name to play one of the candidates. Ah, it looks like You know, they're saying it's gonna happen Ah for the for the debut, but they're basically safe in the 46 season, which debuts October 3rd. I I I'm guessing that he's sort of signed on to participate this whole season. There's going to be a lot of Biden this season. So maybe they said we, you know, and we'll pay you and we'll put you up and you could be alone. Fancy shmancy penthouse in New York City. So they are adding three new featured players to their cast. They'll have a limited studio audience for the coming season, but it's going to it's going to happen. And Jim Carey is I'm looking at a side by side of the two of them with a little make up, I think Kind of like, I think his teeth are going to work. I think it's going to work October. 3rd is when the new season starts, and we'll get to see how Jim Carey does plan Joe Biden's I Love So It doesn't matter to me before you a break, sir. Do you want to hear Because the texture of accident about hers performance saying that you check out her guitar riff in the end?

Friday 18 September
"Now, as we just heard, China's navy is acting live fire drills near the Taiwan Strait. There's little doubt about the intended audience because in the slender credit, where'd you file of us? President Donald Trump remains his phone call shortly after his election to President Chang of Taiwan the first time the US president or indeed president-elect had spoken to the Taiwanese counterpart since nine hundred, seventy, nine, president trump clearly understands that there is no more reliable way of winding. Up China then embracing Taiwan, which may be why he has now dispatched the highest ranking American envoy in decades kaethe crutch on the secretary of State for Economic Growth Energy and the environment, a rank which seems calibrated to annoy China even more by making any overt rage on their part appears somewhat silly one joined with more on this by Isabel Hilton CEO of China. Dialogue is a bill first of all the the visit of chief crash and I've allowed time for everybody to furiously Google is just trolling on America's part. And Up to a point you you left often you know one elements in the winding up of list, which is that he's there to attend the memorial service for former president of Taiwan, Li dung-wei who has counted as the most hated Taiwanese in Beijing because leading Guay was the man who really lead Taiwan to democracy and was also an advocate of Taiwan as kind of independent cultural and political entity from China. So he's really not very you know he's definitely not on the Christmas, Card List for sheeting pin and to pay tribute to him is pretty certainly would be read in Beijing as a as a a further effort crime. So what degree of C- Will Beijing be at over this visit? Well I think we're seeing it now. I mean a great deal of of rather dangerous firepower is buzzing around at the moment An. We've seen really since June kind of escalating provocation from China, in sort of entering various kind of buffer zones which are pretty much being respected for decades you know around Taiwan that you can you can threatened and rattler cage but on the whole, it's been recognized that if you if you cross certain. Lines then you are risking at least an accident so. I mean the the the problem was that you know. In. The last well, just today actually eighteen Chinese bomas an and find the jets and Taiwan's advance buffer zone and that caused the cost Taiwan to scramble its jet. You had a lot of very you know serious. Flying around and I think that. Is and that along with the naval exercises and and a great deal of rhetoric is probably as far as it will go. But you know we have seen a prolonged campaign for the last three or four years of diplomatic isolation of kind of steady pressure on Taiwan from China, and certainly this doesn't help. You correctly observed that the US envoy is there to attend the memorial service for a former Taiwanese president. He will also be meeting with the current Taiwanese president is likely that anything of actual substance is being discussed between the president of one country and the Under Secretary of state for you know whatever from the other one or is this again? Largely. Theatrical. I wouldn't count on it being largely theatrical If you know we, we've wh as you know, we have a kind of dealing confrontation between the US and China and some alarming voices in Washington. Are, advocating, for example, the United States should supply nuclear weapons to Taiwan, which would be pretty crazy move in my view. But. There is a commitment from the United States to supply to Taiwan such a defensive Capability as is required now, it would be quite easy to argue that in a situation of enhanced tension greater a military supplies, more more military supplies. Packs more advanced military supplies were required and I would expect that to be part of the conversation I would also expect at least saying went to be exploring the idea of more formal cooperation between Taiwan and the United States last US official. To visit, which was relatively recently that produced an agreement on of collaboration on health I think timing when would very much like to see a free trade agreement with the United States. So again, I think this quite a lot to discuss an I would be surprised if this visit took place without some of them being on the table is anything really likely to shift in the near future though in any direction where this is concerned is everybody involved not basically biting their tongues and one hopes. Metaphorically as well as literally holding their fire until election day in the United States and certainly hope so you know the the US position on Taiwan, which is a it's a treaty obligation to to make sure that Taiwan can defend itself. This doesn't actually commit the United States to coming to the defense of Taiwan, but there is a kind of strategic ambiguity in in this treaty, which is designed to stop Taiwan declaring independence and therefore provoking China to stop China assuming that were it to.

How Police Misconduct Affects Cities and Taxpayers Financially
"For months. Protests over the police involved killings of Briana Taylor, George Floyd and others reinvigorated an intense debate over policing. Then the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, announced the city would pay $12 million to Briana Taylor's family and institute. A number of police reforms that highlighted an aspect less discussed the financial impact of police misconduct on cities and taxpayers. NPR's Cheryl Corley reports. City's Khun face hundreds of lawsuits every year, charging, among other things, that police used excessive or deadly force or made a false arrest. Many times. Details of settlements are hidden behind confidentiality agreements. Law professor Joanna Schwartz studies how jurisdictions budget and pay for police legal expenses, she says. Although payouts Khun Total in the millions more often there in the thousands of dollars range and with an important determining factor, the number of cases filed and the number of dollars that are paid to resolve cases. Depends very much on where in the country you live claims against Big City Police Department's cost taxpayers about $300 million last year. One of the arguments in the ongoing protests over policing is that money for police could be better spent elsewhere and the clash between protesters and police following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Means Minneapolis and other cities could face a myriad of legal cost. In Chicago. Several groups work to resolve cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted. Two years ago, a federal jury awarded $17 million to Jack Rivera and was considered one of the largest police misconduct settlements in the city's history. I say that was kidnapped by the Chicago police, Roger Li. 55 years old. Now Rivera spent 21 years in prison for a murder. He did not commit framed, he says, by a now retired Chicago gang crimes. Detective Rivera is one of at least 20 who have been exonerated in cases where that detective lead the investigations. They set out to rob You convict me for whatever reasons why Rather, it was just a con the community that they got the perpetrator. Or whatever it may be. It's still not right because taxpayers have to pay for it. Victim's family have to relive this all over again what they think it's closed, and it's just painful for everybody. Over the past decade, Chicago has paid about a half billion dollars for police misconduct. Rivera attorney Locke Bowman is the head of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern Law School, he says in cases where misconduct is clear, said he's often continue to fight against the allegations for months, sometimes years, and that could mean a hefty price tag for taxpayers. The decision to settle a case like that early ends up saving money for attorney's fees. And can result in Ah lower settlement before everybody gets dug in, and the price of the case goes up insurance policies and local budgets usually pay for judgments and claims. Jurisdictions hurting for cash may borrow issuing bonds to spread out payment, add bank fees and interest to investors. And those cost pile up with taxpayer's footing. The bill for police misconduct and as covert 19 devastates budgets nationwide. That could be a more frequent scenario. Chicago City Council Finance Committee Chairman Scott Waguespack says the city is working to break that expensive pattern and concentrating on police reforms so that we're not just saying, Okay, here's another settlement and good job negotiating it and move on, but really look at the deep seated issues within the department to start rooting out those problems. Activists argue tying police misconduct cost to police budgets could help prevent police wrongdoing as well as making police officers especially repeat offenders financially accountable. Currently so called qualified immunity rules shield officers from those costs that's changed in Colorado State representative Leslie Hair. It was the force behind the state's decision to drop its qualified immunity provisions. A new law requires officers guilty of wrongdoing to pay up to $25,000 and that if they were found to have acted in bad faith, violating someone's right, possibly ending in death. That they actually had to be held person responsible, just like anyone else who violated their policies and their obligations at their work with the law also allows officers to purchase liability insurance. Other jurisdictions looking to reduce police related lawsuits may follow that hybrid model of splitting settlement costs between cities and individual officers that just as victims or the families of people injured or killed by police misconduct.

US citizenship applications are backlogged, prolonging the wait for civil and voting rights
"In naturalization applications could have an impact at the ballot box in November. Michelle Li has taken a closer look at all of this or the Washington Post, and she spoke with comas Bill O'Neill. We shall explain how this backlog could impact the election. There are hundreds of thousands of immigrants who are waiting to be naturalized as they many of them have been waiting. Much longer than the five months that the government tries to get the naturalized during and these immigrants are really a growing electorate in the country for the first time this year. Naturalized citizens are going to reach one in 10 eligible voters, and that's a really a record high number for this group of potential voters. Yet this backlog that has been getting worse and worse over time that existed before the Trump administration, but there's been policy changes and budget cuts. And then the crooner virus. That really exacerbated this backlog and means that many immigrants will not be able to vote as they had hoped. This November. It sounds as though this backlog has been around from multiple presidential administrations. Now, is there anything being done to try to move these applications along a little faster? The thing is, even though the backlog have existed. There are still lots of people applying for naturalisation infact after President Trump was elected, there was a surgeon applicants many people who were motivated by President Trump's anti immigrant rhetoric to try to become that isn't either out of concern for their safety or because they wanted to go and Vote against him. And even though there has been a surge, the USC I asked the agency that natural eyes is immigrants has not up its resource is in order to meet that demand. In fact, there has been a potential for loads of employees of decreasing revenues. There have been policy changes under President Trump that have made it Difficult for people to be naturalized in time. It's taken longer for people to naturalized, so the policies have not bet the demand to really decrease the increasing back. Clark. Of course, some will

"I think. At least from the Bernie supporters that I talked to it's about the institutions accountable and as Bernie said, it's not me us right and so it's not just like one person. It's like a whole entire group of people move in down ballot races for progressive policies in local elections and a lot of that is definitely. Having to do with holding institutions accountable once they get elected. Pushing them, I. Think. That's what I heard from after the convention I went on July. And I saw Alison Doco Cortez her live and she talked about. Part of being. Civically engaged is challenging even the people that you have elected. Because, you got to keep them on their toes. They represent a you. I. Think going forward the potential for vitamin. D. Be Open to those challenges I, mean he he over and over again said he listens and you know other people who've worked with them says, yeah he's a really good listener the fact that he early on with South Carolina really sewed up the primary I mean most people who've kind of nailed it. Before they're officially nominated Dale in this listen and changed their platforms right. But Biden listened and he I think he understood that there was a huge bunch backing sanders and so he had to listen to Sanders and I think you know some of the changes and that's why this is the most progressive platform going forward. It may not be progressive enough for some people here. Here's my my ultimate take Helen I feel like. I was a big Yankee supporter in the beginning. I didn't think he was going to have a chance to last as long as he did. So when he dropped out by the time, the California Primary came voted for Warren Okay I don't think that Bernie. Would have as good. A chance as Biden because Bernie is to the left of Biden and in order to beat trump, which to me is job one, two, four, five, six, two, thousand. in order to be trump, we had to have someone who people who were more middle and maybe even a little right of middle could could say I could vote for that guy right and I think that's what we're seeing and and at the same time that Guy Biden. You know in picking a woman of color. And certainly one who's imminently qualified and experienced. That's just one more piece of evidence that yeah. He's not Bernie Sanders but I think he's more electable you know in in this particular. Contest and that's what we need. But at the same time I think he he already has demonstrated that he's open to bringing more progressive things into his platform and I think that it's a hundred percent appropriate that assuming he wins. That the progressives who helped elect, him are going to continue to hold him accountable. Rate, and you you you see again, people are concentrating on Joe Biden because yes, that is an important office but like Corey Bush in Missouri just recently won and. Remembering that she was an activist in Ferguson. Back. Back in two, thousand, fourteen, two, thousand, fifteen, that time period, and. Considering the fact that. She did not accept like big donor donations and she one challenge like.

"So I'm, GONNA shift from like the podcast since I don't want to speak on behalf of our entire team I think that's something we slowly discovered is while we all are relatively progressive, but there are still some nuances and part of a challenge of being a team manager is understanding those folks how we work together to learn. But to speak to your topic of. Yeah I know. I. Don't I'm GonNa I. Don't think I expected these results from primaries to come out this way and nobody expected the pandemic to cut the primary short. Not that they were cut but like the way that I think Bernie gracefully dropped out. During a pandemic when dancing and voting hard I think that definitely the People's health was on his mind But in terms of how to get people on board I, have that challenge now because I do do now some work with Democrats abroad and our goal is also to get out the vote amongst American voters abroad and they're if if you notice during roll call. I think Democrats abroad was the only delegation that had more Bernie. Van. Vitamin. That's, true. Well. That and. Her Mont-. Yeah Yeah, in Vermont, you know Brenes. I think Bernie was low key in the back Bernie. His wife are both standing there. They were both standing there. Yeah, and so kind of noting there is this tension of people who were. So hopeful when we had twenty people going to the primaries and feel so. I wouldn't say disappointed is just like. Anna confused about the results that happened. But at the same time, you know I mean, I talked with a Lotta people who live abroad and their viewpoints on be more pro Bernie comes from their experiences of living in other countries where health care. Pensions are different. And they look to They look to Lake America they're like why or do you like this up. So. That's kind of weird. Their experiences are coming from. It's coming from living abroad. It's coming from seeing other countries and their systems seen foreign policy on the ground being enacted. In terms of like. You. Know I actually WanNa go and see what happened at the convention or like I say at. Virtual. Online. I don't know if you heard about this but since the convention is over and I do want to raise awareness of just what happened like talent like what I heard what happened was. The what we do as delegates as we vote on three things, we vote on the candidates we vote on the platform and vote on a resolution. We during the pandemic, we send the ballots appea- copy to our a state party whips and they send them in. That's how we voted. That was our that was the bare minimum participation as a delegate. and. A lot of people were talking about was the. The Medicare for all and whether it was included in the platform and people being upset that like many many states, thirty four states or thirty eight states have ratified that in their own state resolutions by the national didn't include more explicit language about Medicare for all and. So what happened was the Nevada delegation of delegates started a petition of A. Vote. No, on the Democratic National Popcorn. And I think repetition got like a thousand signatures I'm not I'm not sure ultimately what happens with the numbers but I do know that in our delegation for Democrats abroad we had almost I think all of our Bernie supporters are Bernie delegates and some are Biden delegates no on the platform. And that. Is someone told when I was running to the a delegate can someone told me you being delegates very transient? You have actually very little power. and. What you're really bear to understand how the DNC works how your institutions work in push for institutional change you know who gets to make the rules who gets to go into the primaries. Who was in leadership? Those are all things that. are more sustainable. That's what came out of two, thousand, sixteen in two, thousand. Eighteen Unity Reform Commission. WAS, a change in super delegates voting was this. You know push for democratizing the process even more with doing away. caucusing, doing more pushing towards primaries, which allows for people who don't have to take time off of work to cast their ballots incentive like gathering in one place, which is not feasible for a lot of working class people. So I think now there's a discussion of after the Convention Know Okay Great we love it. Let's go back to procedures and you are they going to release the platform votes. How many people voted for and against it? Are they going to because technically within the rules this is getting technical but if a certain percentage of people vote. One way there needs to be like a minority report issued. About this topic or. And I think that's where a lot of Bernie delegates feel like while we do support the candidate, it's important. We hold our institutions accountable. the party accountable and I think you even saw that within the DNC with Ao see Alexander Cortez. Casting horror nomination vote for Bernie Sanders. And people like Oh why she doing that? That's like distracting. It needed to be done because that's what the rules and procedures said. And Yeah. So I think everybody's like Oh, like Bernie supporters are very disappointed, they're not going to like beyond.

"Asian heritage and what it means for like is representation activism like being a major thing we talk about and then someone else you know that end then someone else on our team who just joined her major sports management and that influencing you know, Oh, thinking about the athletes right now who aren't playing in conferences because of Covid, how can we reach out to them and they have a huge influence? How can they increase voter participation and their influential circles? And so having. Our team dynamic be that way I think produces a lot of variety of episodes. cognizant of our limits until I want to hear more about you can't how do you decide? The guests that come on and. Are you know how do you increase the diversity of? People. I mean you've been doing this for. So as to someone just starting out. I love to hear more. Well, that's a great question Helen I I would say it's different because I'm the primary content developer I don't have a team per se we do have. Guests or potential guests that are recommended by listeners, and so we take those seriously and we do a little vetting and. there's that but as far as I because I am kind of a team of one mainly. It's really on me to be much more broad scape in what I read what attention to or. Trying to get help. In finding out what some of my blind spots are. So, definitely bringing you on. Here's great example You know I saw your little first. Introduction of yourself on the Asian broadcasters facebook page and I thought. Wow. Now here's here's a whole demographic kind gen Z. that I think we need better representation and This Helen seems to be a mover and she's getting things done and I like her energy and I'm going to reach out to her. That's kind of how that happens. There's there's another segment that has. to our delight, which is There are publishers of Asian American writers. Authors and stuff that have now come to see us as a good way to market their books, and so they'll reach out to us and You know some of these books I would've normally paid attention to I'm reading one now by south. Asian woman of two collection of short stories that I haven't read a collection of short stories in forever right and it's like, oh, but it's through South Asian American. Lens I. This is very different, right so so I'm constantly trying to push the boundaries on myself and and. So, that I guess on that actually kind of makes me think and and really ask questions because I really have questions and I think that's helpful for a lot of the listeners because they get to learn along with me. Yeah Yeah I really liked the way he put like learning along the way because it were far from perfect and it's a constant process and I really admire how you stuck to the podcast over the years just because. You know the I I used to be really confused about. You know having a support of ethnic space that makes any sense but to see how people can encourage each other people you know being the first ones to read the books by these authors like you said, that is incredibly supportive and. I. Hope we can learn, but we just had like an outreach meeting today actually started talking about like. How can we grow our listeners and who'd be interested in our podcast, and if our goal is to get out the vote like we need to get more listeners because we can't just keep circulating the same information throughout our own circles, right right and so definitely have a lot to learn from you. I, mean. That's another. Criteria that I picked some guests is like. This guest potential guest have circles that we haven't penetrated with our podcast, and if we bring them on and it's a good, it's a good conversation and they share it within their circles. Is that GONNA help us to some degree I think it always does. Now you know in your case, you're really looking at a young adult API demographic. I I would think you know some of the. Some of the places in social media where the exist. If you haven't penetrated them yet you know and and Kinda put it out there that you exist I would strongly encourage that. I think during this shutdown that a lot more people are listening to podcasts just. Because they got a lot of downtime. So. Yeah. I would think your mission is vital is to increase the percentage of young adult Api Gen Z. People in this upcoming election. You're definitely a Democrat that's another reason why I'm having you on. The, because we want the same thing you know and and I think the other thing that really sold me on bringing you on and and helping promote your worth is you're a Bernie backer and yet you. In right on the Biden, harassing I. I'm part of other little social networks. Bernie. Backers are so pissed off still and they're not happy with the Harris pick that they're just saying they're going to sit out right and I have to just bite my tongue because I don't WanNa, make them any matter than they already are. It's okay to feel. Upset and be in grief and and that kind of stuff but there's another part of me. Helen does it's like. Okay. Got, it Bernie's endorsed you know Biden I mean we have to join forces. There's one job it's November third we have to stop a second term. Because he's going to be trump is gonNA be unchecked, right? So I thought wow, I want to hear from someone like you who maybe you went to your anger and your grief but now you're all on board and and you know talk a little bit about that. Because I think that younger demographic that was really excited about Bernie you're trying to reach them and get them excited about Biden What's that all about? How's.
"li" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast
"And it's a very time specific guests. We talked about this in our first conversation that you're really aiming to get the vote out from November third. So why did you start this and why target API young voters. Right so I guess why start something? Well, it comes out of this sense of. What's out there like content that's out there I think within the podcast space there are definitely a ton of API related podcast. Focus on parallel topics with us like I know model majority podcast, they have reformer Obama staffers, doing commentary and. A lot of these young people in high school or Saudi podcast to amazing what they're doing nowadays. But I I. Yeah. I started the podcast because I felt like. There's curiosity by API's to get involved, but the issues are not laid out very clearly. And we are such a diverse group of people. And Me Myself. I have been questioning whether to use the label AP API because we're so diverse but I tell myself like they're six percent of the population, we don't have much for separated. But yeah. So I started podcasts to to. To have conversation with. Gen millennials about civic engagement in politics amongst Asian, American Pacific Islanders because. I. Think it's not something at least my parents talked extensively with me about and. One of my role models is hustled hodge, which unfortunately this week you found out his show, the Patriot Act was canceled by net flicks. his talk show which was amazing. Yeah. So he's my role model and I would love to meet them someday but the podcast itself kind of models after the sense of their issues, let's deep into one issue and one podcast episode. So our podcast again, get out the vote increase if they can gauge Asian Americans with two styles of episodes. One is more focused on educating and being a topical focus. The others we occasionally release bonus episodes in these bonus episodes more roundtable table, more raw conversations that people want to hear and I'll give you an example. We recently did an episode on affirmative action and proposition sixteen in. California. So we had one episode focused on. What are the facts? Let's talk to an expert lay down misconceptions etcetera, and then we had a round table for a bonus episode with high schoolers who are applying to college. And that conversation is so different when you're going through applying to higher education. So I think those kinds of conversations are missing within the podcast base. And that's where I wanted to contribute. But on the other hand, I think what's been really lovely is. I tell my team members it's about the podcast, but also it's about us as the team learning together. Because all of them when I made the initial facebook posts because can you tell me to make the? I. Can't do this. Helen you gotTa Post and so I did and people started me and they were like, well, unlike not super involved with politics. My background's in like things like, oh, consulting landscape architecture design but I wanna get to know more about this topic myself through this process and I think it's been really awesome us together as a collective learning along the way more about these issues that we aren't seeing talked about. Yeah, and I want to give a shout one of those people Angela saying. Apparently, she listens to our fight. CAST. So. I mean, that's I love the intersection, right Just how we help each other out and we discover common touch points. Right right. Yeah and Kinda speaking on common touch points. It's. Part of I'm realizing this. Responsibility that comes with having even a small platform like our podcast because WHO's ever who who is at the table determines what story is told absolutely, and we've done the yeah we've done a lot of reflection on. Are we allowed to embrace saying that we represent acidic islanders because. Our team is mostly not Pacific Islanders and. Are we you know. Is is the term Asian American erasing a lot of the nuances and I, made it really appoint from the beginning telling my team and I'm still learning this as well. We have to diversify our storytelling and that comes with pitching stories that. FEATURE COMMUNITIES THAT MAY NOT BE Talked about or if we're in a community, our listeners can then learn more about segments within and one of the prime examples is our on our launch date. We launched an episode we did one episode on. College voter. Suppression then we did a second episode on the Small Third Party called the Aloha Party in Hawaii. And they just became a legitimized party this past spring they ran some candidates for their primaries in Hawaii and there founded by three. Native. Hawaiian Identifying people and those stories are. Not In the mainstream because just you know do to everything that's happening and. I was really surprised to win. We release that episode and we got some feedback like, oh, I had never heard about this and. Thanks for sharing about Hawaii Hawaii has a special place in my heart and hearing those words come from these people who we didn't really know that shows that these stories need to be told and whoever is at the writers table director's table needs to think intentionally about what platform you have and what stories you tell. Yeah I mean we're going to run your episode next week and the following week we're running a one with his Vietnamese American because you know our podcast feels the same kind of tensions, a lot of East Asian representation, right and this guy had written an op Ed for CNN several weeks ago and he was basically trying not to sound too partisan but he was kind of reaching out to Vietnamese Americans over fifty who typically are anti-china anti-communist and trying to make the case why this election they can't just look at that and vote again for trump. And so I out to this guy and his was balcony view and this guy served in the Bush administration right? He he was actually an elector for the State of Georgia and twenty? Sixteen. When. Then candidate trump had made fun of that South Asian Goldstar family and he said this is ridiculous and so he said I can't promise and I as an elector that I'm going to vote for trump as he got slammed. So he he resigned and now he's like the deputy vice chair of elections and registration for the state. And he is one of those never trumpers now and and so it's like, wow, that's a really interesting store. We don't typically have on our podcast and and I wanted to help him get it out there right and he goes well, I'm just touched it someone out there read myopic. Yeah I mean actually I would love to get advice while we're having this conversation of how do you? Think about who you invite on the show and the intentional about storytelling because I think we're running into on our team in, and this is I'm going to describe how our team works right now. So the way as of right now as of this August date, the way we run is we have a team of actually more than ten people and. We have people work on, you know outrage marketing, content, development, audio editing, etc. But if you have an idea for an episode, you pitch it to the team. Once we green light it, you contact gas make arrangements and work with the scripts and so anyone on the team can push for a topic and that matters because. You know. I can't you know I'M GONNA burn out if I'm the only content developer that's one thing. But on the other hand like the stories and perspectives people bring like. We're going to do an episode, Kamla Harris Soon and about. Her south..

"What's going on at the convention issues. Americans. Care about and we had some calls with some of these speakers and. We I would not have known about them if the platform wasn't given to more people and wider range of people not just one. person they always rely on and I think that's really exciting because again, to win this election, you can't just have the presidency there needs to be accountability that needs to be down ballot states. So your local elections to. What do you think the impact of the whole four days? was I mean it felt like especially by highlighting some of the Republicans against trump like casick right and and what have you re crossroads? Yeah Right. So so some people found that corny but and I, I heard from some very, you know strong Bernie people that they were really upset that any of those Republicans against trump were given time right but but I get it I I feel like what the DNC decided was we have to reach the moderates. The, people who voted for trump and twenty sixteen. But now they're really having second thoughts the independence I mean the other the other progressive people and the Hardcore Democrats they're already on board. Do you feel like. They made that case. that's an interesting question. I. I didn't Instagram Live for my podcast fresh off the boat which I can talk about later with another delegate another fellow sanders delicate and I asked him on the instagram live I said. Do you think there are populations that the Democratic Party during this convention. Failed to recognize or did not. Reach out very well to more took them for granted and his analysis was. that. Yes. The party assumes progresses will be on board. And I think sometimes that can feel like they're taking their votes for granted. And there was a sense of being upset about the party. Trying so hard to scoop up the independence and the people who had voted for trump and twenty sixteen and not cater to the. Other people who've been doing a lot of work on the left. I think for me personally the impact of the convention in these days. I think it's a big coalition of people. We saw so many speakers and the overall message was unity and I think. They did a relatively good job in doing that I think it's going to be. something. You know I said this on the idea that I did but. I recently read this article about I forgot was it the economist or the Atlantic but radical presidents don't need to be the most radical. and. Why is that and why Joe Biden could be the most progressive president? You're not going to think logically that way, but he could because. People Assemble coalitions and checks and balances on the people in power, and if he is if he knows that maybe he's not the most healing candidate who came out of the primary and he needs to appeal the people then a lot. You're going to form a group of people to be elected not just him. And I think. That's where people are going to have a say hopefully in policy and then can be pushing for things that they think matter but haven't heard by the Democratic Party. I think give. I don't plan to watch the RNC, but I'm sure going to pick up the highlights. They're gonNA try to portray without a doubt Biden as the most progressive the most liberal. Democratic candidate to ever run for press right and I think there. There is some truth that during the DNC the the. Progressive positions he's already taken the green new deal for instance, right and getting close to Medicare for all they that the DNC kind of downplayed that and. So. Some people calling foul, right Especially on the on the far, right right. But you just watch next week There's no way. Though I think it's an extremist exaggerated going to be an exaggeration. There's no way that the GOP is going to not portray Biden as easing but a flaming liberal. Interesting even though like within the party, they don't know right right already what? I mean I think they're they're big conundrum as they don't know quite how to. Label Biden nothing sticks. So the fact that last night he knocked it out of the park in in his closing acceptance speech I mean they had already set such a low bar that he has mental incapacity mental deficiency clearly, that's not the case. And that and then and the content of what he said I mean he made it very clear choice i. think that was true throughout the DNC all the all the big speakers. They're saying you know. And it's not just a referendum against trump it's like Biden represents. Not just decency but experience and. Unifying force in bringing us back together I mean what know what I heard was democracy is at stake, right? Right, right. Yeah I think the word you bring up decency has been brought up throughout the entire campaign trail. I remember when people to Judge Jala Hera's like. All these people dropped out all of their instagram posts for like I believe Joe Biden does a decent man and I think that's a big message they're trying to send but I think another message they they really tried to. Lay Down was. During a pandemic when people are losing their lives, you need an empathetic president. And that's why when you when you hear Joe Biden speech because I think Joe knows that. He's not like Barack Obama in terms of charisma or he's not like. Going to rain in like young voters, just like Bernie Sanders may be did. But one thing that he has experienced is loss.

And gave me this look like. I've lost, I've lost motivation. I. I stepped in Poop. I can't play anymore. And then he just walked away. I could be reading into it, but normally, he would just come right back with that Frisbee and I've never seen him after a catch just drop it worry was and go in a direction not close to me. And I was thinking about this. There's a lesson there. And it might even tie into. This pending November election actually Sometimes you got to clean up the crap. The mess that is clearly there before you can just go on with your life before you can just enjoy life and play and I'm going to echo this week's guests Helen Lee. Old Or young if if you're eighteen or older, you'd need to be registered to vote in this election. And I mean first of all, it's it's a responsibility. So even if you're gonNA vote for trump okay. Just don't tell me. But. I would say, especially, if if you like many people even those who voted for trump twenty six few realized that he is just. He's just incapable of doing this job in. It's all about himself You know he we need. We need someone who's really going to be able to pull the country together and to lead us, and whether you liked vite Internet in the primary he is the other candidate and. We, got a vote. You can't think about you know what life is going to be like when the vaccine is finally here and working enough people take it you. You can't think about how the economies recover when you're gonNA take that the late trip. This crap on the field. And we're not even saying who did it. But it's gotTA. Get cleaned up. Before we can really play without distraction. So you know. My little puppy can understand that. He gets that and. I own it. That was that was my fault I. I should've could've cleaned up the mess. And it's did I ruined his day so. I do not want to have a ruined A. November four, th or A week after November third whenever we find out the official results. We. As a country have got to come together. Get Beyond Party and put Biden and Harris in place so that our country can begin to heal and unite and work together. To get us out of this morass that our current president has put us in because of all of his. His is narcissism in his. Inability to read and whatever you know so. I just want to give you that lesson from our dogs. Sometimes,.

I not l. e. e. and Helen and I happen to virtually meet on a private facebook page called asian-american podcasters and I was one of the early members of that and it's pretty astounding how many he's Merck and podcasters they're out there or those who are in the midst of planning to launch one and Helen fit in the latter category and she happened to say that you know she was looking for some some mentoring some advice. Because she was up against a very big. Time deadline. Her whole point of doing this podcast was to stimulate API, young voters especially Jesse's to register and vote in this upcoming election and. Since we were both coming from the same side of the aisle that that really greased the rails for me iris-out to her and even though she's on the other side of the earth. Gaber some feedback on what she was planning and Lo and behold. She is pulled this off. In addition to. Giving her an opportunity to talk a bit about. This new podcast fresh off the vote I also was intrigued because she was a delegate at the first ever virtual democratic national, convention and so that's why we Recorded this the day after the convention ended and were actually airing it. This week, which is very, very current So we get a fresh take on what exactly happened there and anyway. Just, love how the Internet can bring us closer together even over far apart speaking of virtually vents. The Asian American Pacific Islander Api Christians. Racial. Justice townhall is going to be held September third from five to six PM and Again, it's a virtual event. Let me tell you a bit about this. It's a conversation with API faith and community leaders on racial justice and its impacts on the API community and. We will put the log for zoom in the show notes for this episode I. Think it's IT'S Really I think it has great potential to. Help. API. Christians Christian leaders in particular understand where the Biden. Camp is coming from when it comes to faith. In this case, Christian faith I have been fortunate enough to be included in a weekly. Virtual call with Joshua Dixon, who is the Biden campaigns director of faith outreach. So he he's been very helpful in getting this collection. Of leaders to be able to organize this, and there's GonNa be a virtual town halls. Covering other aspects but just want to let you know this is coming up September third from five to six, six PM and I believe that's Pacific Standard Time. Anyway, we'll put the links on the show notes and you can check it out. Definitely. Let people you know who are API Christian faith theaters. Because I think this is really important election and they need to not just be voting in the dark if you will. Our web page. A PODCAST DOT COM is going to be.

I mean seriously five dollars. Fifty dollars or whatever amount You can afford right now and if you can't you know we understand. But here's something you can do. That will also help us please rate and review US especially and I tunes so that we can kind of creep up in the listening there and definitely a I don't say this enough please. Recommend particular episode to a family member CO worker friend because word of mouth is the best form of advertising. We have two dogs again our golden retriever Dylan passed away from cancer. A little over a year now, and so we already had our first Corgi. Her name is Kogi. Kogi the CORGI and we replaced Dillon. Placed him. We got another dog another puppy Corgi, and we named him Chemo and If you know anything about the breed, corgis are very intelligent, very active they are not sedentary people. And they really need to have their intelligence. Used every you know they need to use it and One of the ways is finding things in fetching things and and they need to exerciser they they. They just have all this energy stored up and the guy get it out, and then they take an APP and then they have more energy from the NAP. Well, the dogs are very different Kogi. She is very, very specific about what she will chase. They're like to maximum three balls. that she will chase you anything else and she'll just look at you like, okay stupid go get it right but. She will go and find if she can't see it. She will go and find one of her favorites and she'll bring it to you, and that's that Chemo on the other hand the puppy he's he's almost a year old. He's happy. Go Lucky and he'll basically fetch anything you throw I mean you could throw a bath towel and he would go get it and bring it back. So one of the things that I decided I wanted to teach him to fetch was a Frisbee. So I bought these two Doug Frisbees, they're hard plastic not necessarily the best thing for some dog's mouth, but he doesn't seem to mind at the PETSMART store these about nine ten inches in diameter and so It took him a maybe two three weeks to get to the point where he actually looks over shoulder as he's running in the direction, he sees your arm point. And if you do a decent throw, he will jump as high as British legs will take him and he will grab that out of the air in his teeth and bring it back you now well, the cute things. To see is to see this dog who's probably. Maybe eight inches tall at the shoulder bringing back this nineteen inch diameter hard plastic disk in his mouth A. Lot of times he steps on the edge and it falls out and then he has to pick it up again but he's determined because he he loves chasing this. He just really seemed to like tracking things that are flying in the air, and then you know give himself a chance to actually get it. So the other night after dinner as our custom I would. Throw one of Kobe's selected balls. Down this hill in our backyard and then grab one of the FRISBEES. And throw it in the other direction for Chemo and. Have a great time and. Chemo was catching like crazy and bring it back and catching like raise and bring it back and then on this latest throw I threw it. He went up as High Z could Katainen his teeth. And then as excitement and kind of running blind because of holding this, if you can imagine in his mouth sometimes it, it's sticking up vertically so he can't see where he's going. He happened to run right to a somewhat dry pile of dog poop I. Don't know if he did it or Kogi did it and I had seen it when we first started playing in normally I'm very good about finishing up the playing area, the playing field before we play but I just thought Oh you know I'm very accurate I'll throw it in. Both dogs they..
Biden Eliminates Trump’s Advantage With White Voters To Take Double-Digit Lead, Poll Finds
"NPR Marist PBS NewsHour poll finds presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is up eight points over President Trump's since the pole was last conducted. NPR's Domenico Montanaro says it find shifts among important voting groups. Trump still retained support from his base voting groups, but he's seeing his Li dissipate with importantly, white voters for context Trump one white voters in 2016 by 20 points, and in this poll, Trump and Biden are tied. The poll also shows Biden gaining ground with independent voters.
Jack O'Holleran: SKALE Labs - An Ethereum Scaling Solution Using App Specific Blockchains
"Far more effectively. So, let's get to. Scale the scale is sort of a unique approach to scaling Theorem we compare it to like. We've had a lot of scaling solutions on the podcast and the last couple of weeks or months it seems Li- are working layer to. Working on things like roll ups, etc.. And scale network has a vastly different approach to getting a theory. And so I wonder before we get into how it works you describe the scaling problem as you see like, how do you explain to someone like they're five? What is the issue with you know scaling? Theory him. Yes. So I think of this as an APP specific blockchain problem, and if every application can have their own blockchain, their success is not enhanced encumbered by someone else's success or failure. You can do a more of that and even if you can use that blockchain to do things like storage or incorporate other functionalities that are configured to you you just we get better scale from societal Indus- industry perspective and imagine if like it costs you more to use your g mail because so many people use meeting a certain day right? Or your g mail was slower and having APPs specific back ends I. Think is the way the future where we get to real scaling. So that's what scale tries to do and yeah. Hey it has nice throughput and other things, but it's not a TV s battle. It's really about almost a division of compute resources letting people pave it pay for what they want and configuring use it as I want. The quote always GonNa Stuck with me when when block on the. The way that he described it. Was that scaling is essentially in Blockchain's scaling comes down to becoming to being a networking problem. If you break things down essentially, you're trying to get transactions to other notes as fast as possible in order for those to validate them at some point they're like bottlenecks with that and. Describing, scaling problem as an application problem. You know it's sort of like a layer up. Layer of abstraction on top but it's a way that at least those those of us who are sort of unique assignment using applications. It's more tangible way I think to like looking at the problem. And you know one other I guess example pull up here. So the IT goes back to this networking a resourcing issue getting getting data to nodes. Let's say we had one hundred nodes in the network and ten ten applications that want to use this. And there's no way all ten of them can use them at peak times in any meaningful manner that is cost effective said, hey, let's give each each application ten notes to work with. And then we've fifty sixty issue but we've we've created another issue in that the collusion element is far easier right? If you can get ten notes to collude and and then we lose a lot of the power of our blockchain right and so the way we look to solve that or the skill network looks to solve that is it takes his big broad group of nodes and it's able to randomly. Assign them to the applications and rotate them. Okay. So that way the network can problems still only a subset if there were one hundred nodes and each one at ten years need to network ten does need to come to agreement her two thirds of ten nodes and we've also cut down the weight and blood and someone's using the blockchain a lot and filling it up will they're gonNA just only pay for? Within, ten nodes they use and have to keep buying more resources to go behind those ten nodes and my ten nodes I I leave us a little bit. So I'm just getting small fraction and I'm just going to pay a little bit and I'm not impacted by the other application role but I'm at risk if my nodes are V if they can understand, they're all working together if there's not an incentive component to stop them from colluding and if there's not a good way to randomly
Li at his best and builds early lead at PGA Championship
"Radio Sports Center Lennox Today in San Francisco Lee how tongue becomes the first player ever from China Toe lead after any round of a golf major championship lead today. Second round 565 Is it eight under overall after the 1st 2 rounds of the PGA Championship. Tiger Woods, two over par 72 is eight shots off the lead and behind the leader, lead Jason Day and five others at six under two shots off the lead day at several points for the round, sharing the lead with Lee but ended up with a double bogey on 12.

The Current State Of Outbound Lead Generation
"My guest today is Dana Lindahl data is the founder of legendary lead Gen. One of the first outbound focused marketing agencies. He and his team have been helping business to business service companies and marketing agencies grow since two thousand fourteen. Is, specialty is in helping companies, set sales appointments with their ideal prospects, as well as establishing them as an authority within their industry. That's what we're going to be talking about today. Thanks so much for joining me today. Thanks Diane. I'm really excited to talk all things Li generation and responsible use of Lincoln. I love that. Okay. We're GONNA start with the responsible use of lake debt. So, will you please explain the listeners what you mean by that? I think the easier way to explain this would be to explain I the irresponsible use of linked in, which is what's actually a much more pervasive, right? which is the type of things that your listeners are probably. So sick of getting into their inboxes, which is somebody connects with them and minutes to a day. Later, they received some sort of template pitch into their inbox that is not targeted at them at all, and it doesn't even into account whether that person might need or appreciate what's being said to them, and that's I would say the approach that about eighty to ninety percent of people who are doing quote unquote lead generation on linked in are taking these days and it's really unfortunate because linked in is a great place to connect with other. To specifically for beat the B but just other people in business a great place to learn as a great place to network and Mrs even doubly. So in the Times of reduce networking in Covid, nineteen times. So I really feel like a lot of people are doing themselves a disservice by reaching out in such a way that makes people remember them as the type of person who did not approach the other party in a way. That is respectful. And unlike other channels such as for example, cold email in cold calling has been around for a but with those, it's difficult to actually see directly who it is who's Essen you Or contacting you without doing your own homework and trying to click through and find out more information with them on linked in your face and your profile and everything connected to your company is right there visible. So when you reach out to someone and you don't put your best foot forward, it's easier for them to remember that to walk away with a bad impression of who you are. So, there's my you know quick explanation of what not to do but I wanNA run through. We can go into a lot more detail on each of these specific things but. My version in my philosophy on what works well in what is responsible way to use? Lincoln for the generation encompasses a couple of different things. I is growing your network simply connecting with people who are, either they could be a good fit for you to have as clients, but to advance your network and the people that you know we can get connected with. Linked in has a different way of showing things to people and using their algorithm than the other social networks so. For example, on facebook if you scroll through your newsfeed, you see your friends and maybe you see something from friends of friends but that's about it. That's where it stops unlinked in. You'll scroll through your newsfeed and you'll see your connections and then you also see your connections connections and your connections connections connections. It's kind of the best type of exponential growth that we can hope for in two thousand twenty because the other types of exponential growth that we've been experienced in have all been related to the virus and that's not. What we really want but then is really a multiplier effect. When you ask somebody to your network, your first degree network, their whole first degree network now becomes your second degree network. So if you add someone who has a large network themselves. Just added maybe ten thousand people to your second degree network. This is ten thousand more people who have a possibility to see your content when you post it and linked in being the content deficient platform that it is I. Believe the statistic is that less than one percent of their user base actually posting regularly they're showing this content to so many more people than you can reach. On then on the other social networks,

thank residuals I think that's it visit joined exit realty dot com joining us on the show this week is our friend Nikolai appeared from exit strategy realty and make you always have great information for us no matter if we're in real estate or we're an entrepreneur ourself and today is all about Leeds it is all about lead that any business or entrepreneur you don't lead generation and prospecting is so huge and that's it they have to be an official part of our day and we talk about it a lot but there's an overall strategy that I wanted to discuss with you as far as lead generation and how to grow what I want to discuss today's expansion and a lot of us right now are looking at our business plan and realizing that we need to tweak them and whether it's because of the current situation anytime were always wanted to broadband very few entrepreneurs that I coached or that actually what I'm coached by my coaches that Corindus beanie the coaching program that I've been we talk about expansion a lot of people always want to go wider and say well I need a bigger audience and a lot of times it's not just meeting more people it's actually going deeper with the people you already know but there's a couple different things I wanted to stop the relation to expansion weiter verses deeper and the first thing you've got to do is really understand your numbers where are your leads currently coming in so if you're in business especially real estate I'll beat them focused in that that area but all entrepreneurs have three main bundle of leads that come in and you've got to track those and figure out what's working for you and what's not the first one is prospecting and partly prospecting for me that'd be old school lead generation that we all have been taught that door knocking cold calling open houses for realtors things like that the guerrilla marketing techniques but I've always worked but they're tough and some prospecting in farming it's a lot of hands on it gives those old school techniques that people kind of dread up front you've got to get to know script you've got to have the materials to support you add up prospect apartment take time but it is the best way for someone new with out a big database of people to get going and it doesn't cost any money it does not cost any money to hold the defective open house too even in these times do a virtual open house yes no your neighbor's door lock you can do virtual door knocking used in place of like next door there's the wonderful things on the internet social media I created a neighborhood group for my particular condominium association I've already gotten to listing appointment out of that in the first week of prospecting and farming a lot of people think they need to run out and get postcards then they send postcards out one thing because they don't get a response they then you jump to a different area and what you really need to do is commit to a twelve month campaign prospecting a party to a specific area no it's gonna take a little time to get results you may get some right away like I did with that neighborhood Facebook group that I created but it is also about building relationships over time with prospecting apartment people are always in the mood to immediately buy or sell with you no matter what product or service you are trying to get to engage with them it takes time but it is highly effective technique for someone new or some of this experience but wants to expand into a new area but remember you can't just go wide you've got to go deep with these people reach out and touch them in a variety of ways and build a relationship over time the prospect apartment that is our first final the second bottle and again you know you hopefully people can write these down referrals and beer that is such a sweet spot for me in a lot of other than entrepreneurs that have been around a while if you do a wonderful job you've got a great product or service and people appreciated like you because you're good at it you should be getting referrals but you got to ask for a better ask your spear the business you've got to get.

"So when these APO is all of a sudden throwing his family connections his connection to his homeland his entire childhood really wear his cultural roots are to the side. I can't help but think to myself. Am I being played like? Is this guy. Just really calm in a situation other people would be freaking out in. Or is he really? I feel bad saying this is. He really aspires face to face meeting and some answers when rough translation returns. We're back with rough translation in our story about the student Lee Bow. Emily was not at all sure where to land on this guy when we talked last summer but the months passed and she kept following the story until a few things happened. I actually got to Taiwan to meet him. You'll have here Yeah Though has been when I met him. He was way shorter than I expected even more durable than expected he definitely seemed younger than I thought. His apartment is in this quiet part of Taipei Taiwan's capital city. He lives on the ground floor with two other roommates. And the first thing you notice when you walk in is the clutter but none of the stuff is his being through. He showed me his bedroom. It is very small so small that he's barely fit a mattress in their. Wh What Is Yours. And what is what was already here. only bought this pillow reading lamp in the months that he's been in Taiwan he's living in close to poverty and he's all alone in this society that hasn't yet accepted him. You know life as always along as far as I can tell He hasn't made close friendships. And in Taiwan and so. I asked him. Aren't you homesick? And he said No. Homesickness is for people who cannot assimilate. It's only when you don't feel like you fit in that you start to miss the things that are familiar. Does he feel like you fitter He he feels like he can fit into Taiwanese society. But he's not optimistic anymore that Taiwan will accept him. This brings us to the second thing that changed in Lee's life. Taiwan was having a presidential election. That election was the reason that emily was in Taiwan. Like every time when he's election feels like Life or death to the time when he's but this year they said it was particularly existential was all taking place as the protests in Hong Kong. We're getting one more intense. Hong Kong wants to sign this bill that can send suspected criminals back to mainland China. Hong people don't agree with that and they start protesting and the same issues that are happening in the Hong Kong protests are not playing out in Taiwan's presidential elections and the question of whether to accept asylum seekers had become a major campaign issue so I asked him. How does the Election Affect Your visa? Shinsei team qualm. That gets me on. What's your situation now with the visa? A similar scene hunter so that he was not very optimistic. He said it really depends on on who wins and the political direction I want to but he keeps saying. I don't have control over the matter. There's nothing I can do about wait and see necessarily when Chin which Dow we've seen Polish on. I keep prodding him because I don't quite believe that he's as calm as he says he. I certainly wouldn't be. What does he think about the fact that a lot of people in Taiwan or calling him a spy and asking you youth highway people are saying really mean things about you maybe even untrue and he responds by saying were in a democratic society? People can say what they want. Y'All in fact I for a lot of people piled onto him he said I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to mislead you about which university I was broadcasting from. And what did he say about his accent? The fact that he does not at all talk like someone from northern China. I asked him about his accent. He said I watch a lot of Tony's movies Korean movies and I picked up these accents from all these different things that I watch C. You can hear 'em you says ridiculous ridiculous that people expect a person to speak with shadow accent. Why why can't they have an accent from a different place which serve Beleza basic understanding of accents are right? I mean you don't usually acquire a different accent from watching foreign movies on TV. Unless I guess if you really don't WanNa live where you are you want. Imagine yourself somewhere else. Yes so I was like when he was growing up and he said that he would always be asking why into Allen reasonable. Why things were the way they were and the thing that he still resents to this day is instead of nurturing as curiosity his parents would always say. Why was he asking so many questions? They were really impatient with him and so I asked him if he was close to his parents and he said a Hindu to those spent a lot of conflict in our relationship. His Dad would always tell him. Why can't you be like everyone else? And then he says well. When I got older I started to think. Why do I have to be like everyone else? Wish American and that's when he says he opened the door to this new world that eventually led him to Taiwan uses. You get made me see his flight to Taiwan in a different light so at first I was using the framework of this is a young Chinese dissident. He wants freedom he feels suppressed in mainland China. So he comes to Taiwan but then I realized he is a young college student who probably has. Parental issues feels constrained by them has big dreams and emissions and in some ways his flight to Taiwan is part of this normal almost universal adolescent Journey to finding oneself to fully come into one's potential and this is the moment when he starts to make more sense to you. Yeah actually growing up. My parents would tell me all the time. Thank God that we emigrated because you would not succeed in China. I mean. Ironically I am in China right now but not under the circumstances of of having gone to school here and working for a Chinese company. Why because you asked Just too many questions he. I don't I mean it's not that I'm disrespectful of authority but it takes a lot of sucking up to do well in China trying to think of examples like there are very liberal independent thinking people I know who will still bowed to social pressure. And they'll make it work in their favor but they still. They still conform so for example. I have at least one gay friend who has gotten a fake marriage with someone of the opposite gender so they can say parents have gotten married when in fact the sham marriage it's a friend of theirs but it's totally platonic defense. They're totally against the political system that governs China. They're against the social values that make people act the way they act. They still feel a connection to Chinese society. Their friends their family. The people that care most about are there and they want to be part of those people's lives. There's a strong cultural association with being trainees. Even if there are parts of that society or that political system that they don't like and the double really struck me as a person who not only disliked the political system but also didn't feel that culturally close to being Chinese like ethnically culturally Chinese and was okay leaving all that behind. Was there any policy? That toilet from fishing hole asked him. You feel like you ran away from you. Abandon them in China policy. Tom And he says no I. I don't think I abandoned them all their own. He said they have their own lives. And from now on I have my own. I mean he is. He is kind of very quintessentially American and like a great gatsby way. He thinks he's a blank slate like he can make himself and to whoever he wants to be and my understanding was that his accent is also part of his project of finding himself that it should be somehow a product of his choice. Not where he grew up but to many Chinese people he would be siennas turning his back on a very intrinsic part of who he is which is that. He's Chinese it. I remember in our first interview last year. You were talking about Chinese millennials. And how silent they are on the subject of politics or as activists and you're wondering whether lease story might signify that. There's a lot more resentment among those people than you knew about What you're describing in lease story is such a special case. Not Maybe in his politics but his psychology. What makes him so different? Might be not how he feels about the president but how he feels about his parents or about his country so knowing that how do you feel now about whether there are millions of more people like him willing to do what he did? I think I think he's pretty unique. I don't think there are a lot of people who do it he did. He was able to let go really easily with very few qualms cheese. We were talking about the impossible traces. He faced either. He was made opportunist trying to create a political opportunity in what she could get asylum in a better country or he was a Chinese spy your to ruined democracy in Taiwan or the. Us Seems Kinda choosen. Its Own goal choosers repeal. Say he was like this is an original sin. It's like a stain on who he wants to be like. He wants the choice of being able to say. I am Chinese or I'm not Chinese. Unfortunately everyone's already decided for him that he is trainees at the end of the day. Some part of him is a little bit Chinese than you realize that. He can't just leave.

"So what do you think's GonNa Happen? Tally will Taiwan. Let him stay or they going to send him back to Beijing. I found him in part because Taiwanese media were debating about whether or not he should be allowed to stay past student visa expiry date. But the reason why this debate has taken an extra level of intensity is because the fears of a rising China have completely swept Taiwan and the fear that jumbo therefore might be a spy. Sent by Beijing are At a real high. Oh spy that's That that immediately the tenor of the debate is easiest by yes. And how does that strike you like play out the most believable version of the narrative? Where he's a spy he. This is a young student who seems completely innocent. And therefore blameless who has professed loyalty to the kind of democratic and humanistic principles that Taiwanese people have embraced freedom of speech rule of law. One vote one person but he's actually a sheep disguise in Wolf's clothing. He will use this exploit to stay in. Taiwan recruit others and then pass on sensitive information or help. Chinese agents infiltrate Taiwanese institutions On behalf of the Chinese Communist Party that is the greatest fear One of the big arguments for why people are suspicious. Allegiant is he live streamed himself at Taiwan's university. There is an identical university with the same name in Beijing. They're not affiliated but they have the same name people automatically assumed he was in Beijing mainland China on a college campus. Somewhere saying this very controversial staff and thought he was incredibly brave. Then he said. Oh I'm actually in Taiwan where there is freedom of speech and people immediately thought that he was doing for show and also the university that he livestream from was different than the one. He was attending as an exchange student. Right so he would have had to go to this other university. That happened to have the same name is the one in Beijing. Yes and the second thing that made people really suspicious was his accent. His accent didn't sound like someone who grew up in mainland China as he did actually sounded a little bit Taiwanese but not quite and so people were saying was he trained somewhere to sound like he's Taiwanese and somehow trick people into thinking that he's from here and the third thing. Thomas Dwayne the trip ocean without quit which I'm not really didn't make sense to me. It was just how detached he sounded when he talked about his life back in China that he suddenly had to leave behind. The seniors. Though Howard is oddly unemotional about the fact that he has not seen his parents and likely will not see his parents ever again. Why did that seem to what one thing? That was very hard for me to wrap my mind around when I first moved to. China is that people kept saying to me. Were so glad that you've moved back to China but I've never lived in China. It was just that I looked Chinese that my parents were trainees. And thus that somehow conferred this Intrinsic Trainees identity to me people. Also say that about their hometowns in China like even if you weren't born in a place if your parents are from a place your ancestral home has always been this particular place. That is considered your home. Even if you've never spent any substantial.

"Li serves then and in nineteen seventy four on the house Judiciary Committee he was tasks in the summer of nineteen seventy four together with his colleagues in evaluating and voting on as most of the house managers here have articles of impeachment those articles included the crime of obstruction of justice abuse of power an obstruction of Congress but unlike how house managers indeed the entire house forty five years earlier a later in December two thousand nineteen proceeded here bipartisan consensus in nineteen seventy four among both house Democrats and house Republicans was the order of the day indeed it became apparent then that narrow partisan views aside the house Judiciary Committee would step into the breach only in so far as evidence of criminal presidential conduct warranted it the tapes of oval office conversations involving the president provided that evidence the Supreme Court in a fact overruled a claim of executive privilege and ordered the release of the tapes to the house Judiciary Committee as a result three days later the high crime of obstruction of justice including supporting perjury tethered to a second article of impeachment two days after that alleging abuse of power was approved by the house Judiciary Committee by a vote of twenty seven to eleven and twenty eight to ten respectively the second article of impeachment alleged among other things unlawful use of the CIA and its resources including covert activity in the United States and interference with the law enforcement actions of the FBI to advance the cover up that is the criminal conspiracy to obstruct draw justice charged in the first article of impeachment the crimes alleged were serious involving unlawful electronic surveillance of an opposing political party a hush money out of the White House safe to burglars and other co conspirators to silence cooperation with law enforcement and attempts to alter testimony under oath six Republican house committee members joined all twenty one Democrats in supporting those two articles my congressman was among those six Republican house members another one of the six was then a young congressman from Maine who later became a member of this body serving with distinction as a senator and later as president Bill Clinton secretary of defense that young congressman was bill Cullen a third of the six was representative call bill Butler a Republican from Virginia whose papers are housed at Washington and Lee university in Lexington Virginia in the state where I grew up and where I later went to law school together these six Republicans made history they did so with no sense of triumph in today's parlance no fist pumps but only in the words of my congressman with deep reluctance and only because the evidence was clear and unmistakable of unlawful activities by the president in a criminal cover up that was in the concluding language of the first article of impeachment contrary to his trust as president as for the third article in the Nixon impeachment that article charging obstruction of Congress did not enjoy bipartisan support but instead was voted on by the house Judiciary Committee along party lines by a vote of twenty one to seventeen Republicans objected then to the third article in the face of the president's good faith prior claim to executive privilege by withholding certain evidence until such time as the matter was definitively resolved by the Supreme Court my point in mentioning these three votes by the house Judiciary Committee is simply this count votes and do the math I understand that you all have been deprived of your phones and that's a calculator app so I will do it for you a twenty seven to eleven vote was not only by partisan as I have indicated but overwhelmingly so indeed over seventy percent that is to say greater than a two thirds supermajority that vote send a powerful signal to the full house and indeed the Senate that impeachment was overwhelmingly bipartisan and therefore politically and legally legitimate president Nixon's fate was sealed and the result was inevitable thus less than two weeks after that initial committee vote on impeachment the president resigned my congressman during the course of those proceedings commented simply and plainly that it was in his words a great American tragedy but the greater point was and is that a pizza was never designed or intended to be a partisan tool and was to be undertaken only as a last resort this then brings me to what was intended by the framers of the constitution relative to impeachment that subject will be addressed at some length by my colleague professor Dershowitz but for now let me just say that much has been said by house managers in reliance on Alexander Hamilton's oft quoted statement in federalist number sixty five that's the one repeatedly taken out of context and cited in favor of an expansive scope of jurisdiction by Congress over alleged offenses in Hamilton's words which proceed from the misconduct of a public official constituting the abuse of or violation of some public trust the irony that Hamilton the greatest proponent in this country of executive and presidential authority that perhaps ever lived should be front and center in this partisan impeachment effort to remove a duly elected president from office is apparently lost one house impeachment managers I dare say that Hamilton would roll over in his grave at the end of Wall Street in New York City to note that contrary to what he explicitly acknowledged in federalist number sixty nine that a president can only be removed from office upon conviction of treason bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors we should just read the word crime right out of the impeachment clause of the constitution and proceed merrily along the way towards an impeachment trial with witnesses no less of a president duly elected by the people and for what articles of impeachment that do not even alleged crimes president trump is right that course if sustained cheapens the impeachment process and thus is an American tragedy all its own indeed none other than president Clinton's highly respected White House counsel Charles ruff during the impeachment trial twenty one years ago in January nineteen ninety nine stated at best and I quote to argue as the managers do that the phrase other high crimes and misdemeanors was really meant to encompass a wide range of offenses simply flies in the face of the clear intent of the framers who carefully chose their language knew exactly what those more words meant and knew exactly what risks they intended to protect against close quote one of those concerns and rest counsel ruff went on to explain was that impeachment be limited and well defined for our purposes here what is required is both the crimes be alleged and that those crimes be of the type that in particular are so serious that day again and Mister Ross words quote subvert our system of government and would justify overturning a popular election close quote otherwise what you have into Tocqueville's words is legislative Tierney that taken in its proper context members of the Senate I respectfully submit is what Alexander Hamilton well understood and meant and so did my congressman that congressman was of course Hamilton fish junior actually was not really junior but Hamilton fish the fourth his great grandfather was also Hamilton fish who was born in eighteen oh wait later served as governor of New York a United States senator immediately before the civil war and notably as president Ulysses grant's secretary of state but what I didn't realize at the time back in nineteen eighty even though now perhaps it's so obvious the original Hamilton fish was named after his parents best friend none other than Hamel Alexander Hamilton himself what congressman Hamilton fish from the Watergate era courageously understood is the same historical lesson that Jeffrey A. angle founding director of the center for presidential history at Southern Methodist University has written about in a co authored two thousand eighteen book on impeachment the charge must be treason bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors it must be one for which clear and unmistakable proof can be produced only if the evidence actually produced against the president is indeed irrefutable such that his own constituents in this case the sixty three million people like me who voted for president trump except his guilt of the offense charged in order to overwhelmingly persuade a super majority of Americans and thus their senators of malfeasance warranting his removal from office and finally because it is the president the United States after all that we are talking about here the repository of and entrusted under the constitution with all of the executive power of the United States in other words an entire branch of government removal from office cannot be based upon an impeachable offense or offenses which are in essence nothing more than raising president Gerald Ford now whatever a partisan majority of the house of representatives considers them to be and to supplement that cited statement fifty years ago in nineteen seventy from then congressman Gerry Ford in connection with the prospect of potentially impeaching a Supreme Court justice Ford pointedly clarified that executive branch of impeachment are different because voters can remove the president the vice president and all persons holding office at their pleasure at least every four years to remove a president in mid term it has been tried before and never done would indeed he said require crimes of the magnitude of treason and bribery professor I keel Ammar of Yale Law School made largely the same point during the Clinton impeachment about the danger presented through presidential impeachment of transforming an entire branch of government when they remove a duly elected president they undo the votes of millions of ordinary Americans on election day that is not something he continued that senators should do lightly lest we slide toward a kind of parliamentary government that our entire structure of government was designed to repudiate in hammering home the constitutional uniqueness of presidential impeachments he emphasized the case of Richard Nixon and distinguished it that from Andrew Johnson that is to say only when extremely high crimes and gross abuses of official power indeed pose a threat to our basic constitutional system of threat as height and truly as malignant to democratic government is treason and bribery he reasoned with the Senate ever be justified in nullifying the votes of millions of Americans and removing a president from office my point is this history our American history matters to listen to how the house managers would have it articles of impeachment are merely as Chuck ruff worn a generation ago empty vessels into which can be poured any number of charges even those considered an abandoned at least in the case of president Clinton's impeachment the articles actually charge crimes the Senate thereafter determined by its vote in that case in the fact that while those crimes perjury and obstruction of justice may have been committed those crimes were not high enough crimes damaging to the body politic to warrant the president's removal from office that judgment of was of course within this body's discretion to render and it has been accepted as such by the country whether you agree with it or not as legitimate it is also one that is historically consistent with Hamilton's views and medicines to concerning the proper scope of impeachment as applied to a president when I entered the scene and succeeded my colleague and co counsel here judge Kenneth Starr as independent counsel in October nineteen ninety nine it was left for me to decide whether prosecution of president Clinton following impeachment none the less was warranted consistent with the department of justice's principles of federal prosecution and that matter was exhaustively considered in the midst of a federal grand jury investigation the I. commissioned in order to decide first whether crimes in fact had been committed I found that they had and I later said so publicly in the final report expressly authorizing mandated by Congress concluding the Lewinsky investigation significantly though I also determined that the prosecution of the president while in order once he left office would not be in the national interest given alternative available means short of prosecution in order to hold the president accountable for his conduct those means included a written acknowledgement by the president two years after his Senate trial that his testimony under oath before the grand jury had in fact been false and a related agreement to suspend his law license the price paid by president president Clinton was indeed high and it stemmed in the end from the need to vindicate the principal first raise most prominently during Watergate that no person including the president is above the law despite president Clinton's subsequent protests station in his memoirs that I was just another federal prosecutor out to extract in his words a pound of flesh I credit the president to this day with agreeing to do what was necessary in order to exercise my discretion not to prosecute namely that for the good of the country and recognizing the unique place that the president indeed any president occupies in our constitutional government accountability and discretion go hand in hand and permitted indeed demanded such an appropriate resolution it enabled the country to.

"So what sort of tools does privacy law have any to sort of help address. These kind of negative externalities tonality to privacy. Homs with the individual feels about what's happening but we have a societal damage. With all of these daughter accumulating. That's really honey. This is something I've also got into trouble with. I have gone on record saying that. For example Amazon Ring may not be the most terrible technology ever invented in the history of human technology. Right there are many types consumer technologies that seem a little creepy and have bad. externalities are very useful and people like convenience people like technology. Sometimes we like targeted ads. They give you brands that you may actually want to buy. Sometimes we like technologies like Siri or like Google home or digital assistance allows us to do things without actually typing things into a computer or a phone. It's true that consumers want technologies that occasionally our privacy invasive. I think what's important here is twofold that I the companies have to realized their responsibilities both legal and otherwise protect consumer data so that they can have still a strong market advantage but also we need you to make sure that we regulate the technology sector generally and data collection specifically speaking protect consumers. Even when they do want these technologies I think we can have you nahles. We just need to make sure we implement them and develop them in a way. That is protective of privacy. So that I think it's too much bigger question question. which is what are the sort of big changes in technology in recent years? That privacy regulation has failed to adapt to on a high level. All that is a key question so the question of how society has changed is really important and understanding how the law should change and one of my mentors Professor Jack Balkin at Yale Law School. He has always spoken about the importance of technology law as not just dealing dealing with new technologies simply because they're new but looking at what is change in society so that these technologies have changed as well and when you understand what is change about society then you can figure out how the law should change so here. I think we have a few societal changes that are important to understand when we think about how to change privacy laws or update them to allow for protection against disinformation for example. One of the greatest. Societal changes is simply the proliferation of data. So the big data world is one of the biggest changes the fact that you walk outside and data's being collected about you from numerous numerous actors many of which you don't know that's something that's new in the past you. Generally new win data was being collected about you today. You don't and and there's almost no way to control how the data is leaders shared or transferred or aggregated. It strikes me on that point with the massive accumulation of data that we say that. We're actually in these very very unique moment in history where we could study things like this information in a way that we could never do before platforms have so much information about how it spreads who who spreads it what is effective counter speech etc.. But here's where we run into privacy from a different angle. So in the study of disinformation or when in their campaigns happening in real time. They're concerned about privacy about letting too much data out to let by the researches or count speech campaigns in and this sort it seems like a real tension there and you can understand you have some sympathy for the platforms to sort of. Be Very nervous about the privacy homes especially in the wake of Cambridge analytic current things. So how how do you conceive of that trade off there and is there any way to sort of move forward from this point where we have this bit of a stalemate. It's really interesting when you talk to people who are trying you do research on the platforms. which involved many of us on this podcast right now? It's difficult to get data from the platforms if you want hard data ada on how people are talking to each other happy interacting. This involves either very creative use of the platform scrape various types of data or talking to the platforms themselves and asking for data directly from them of course post Cambridge Analytica. A many platforms have kind of locked down their access for researchers searchers and this is a good and bad thing it could be good in that we could prevent the next Cambridge Analytica from happening right. We could limit a bad faith researcher from taking too much data it's also potentially bad because there are probably many more good faith researchers who could used I used data even data that could potentially identify a person solely in a research capacity and this research could be on topics that could relate to disinformation mation. It could be about information actors about the spread and the amplification of this info. All of those things. That are very important for us to study right now. So I am concerned about the over application of privacy issues and privacy law and stopping research on tech platforms. So what I I have found fascinating about The individual user side of this is that seems like individuals also starting to realize of their personal data is worth worth money right And in a way they're learning that they have something to sell and we saw this pretty clearly in the Ukraine elections action that took place over the the spring and summer where there was a confession by a Russian agent who said he was sent to Ukraine around the elections to try to get people to rent out their facebook accounts and then they would have this organic account that they could then use to post. The local ADS has or publish all kinds of false stories. Or what have you and right. Now if you google rent on my facebook There's plenty of companies specialize in this S. and this to me seems like the next phase of the GIG economy right where people are realizing that their data's worth something it's not just something to to the companies and then to advertise trying to sell products. It also could be worth something to them right and I just wonder where like this is all heading and one one thing that I have put out there and nobody has really yelled at me about this. Although I don't think it's a good idea necessarily but I love to get your thoughts is suggested that will be really useful to it. Requires through disclosures. Were companies are basically required to tell you if you request that information how much you're worth to them right because we all all have a dollar sign on us when it comes to the kinds of advertising stretching US appealing react to certain advertisers. I mean is this just a completely crazy idea or do you think this is something that I mean at least raise awareness about how data collected. How much of his collected and what is is worth value to the individual? I think that's an interesting idea. I don't know if it's crazy. It's certainly not something that we we've seen implemented in the law. I think thou what you're talking about here. This idea of the worth of a user's data. It's not so much about how much data costs it's about Out The user account or really the user identity and we've seen this we've seen different companies by user accounts in order to then flip them. Tom and use them for disinformation or for advertising. I just read an article recently about this phenomenon where people are now Amazon. Reviewers yours for products for pay. So what they essentially do. is they sign up on Amazon. They have an account and the also sign up on an external website to be paid reviewer. This external website pays them completely off Amazon reviews written products. These people then go on Amazon actually buy the product and and then review it as a verified purchaser. So there's no money. Being exchanged between Amazon and the reviewer but reviewers getting paid based on their appearance of having a real Amazon account. I think that's a very similar We're talking about the issue of people selling their appearance or their identity or their account It's not so much selling your data which I think is different and scarier. I'm if you sell a user account on facebook or user account on twitter or Amazon. That's one discreet thing. And that's something we can get a price on A. We could have a marketing company. Just priced how much a certain account is worth. You can think of this. In terms of a proxy for example how much an influencer of different follower how is paid for certain advertisement the idea of getting paid for your data generally scarier though because it gets into this really scary concept to me which is simply be idea of data brokers aggregate irs owning more data than anyone can brilliant understand. I think we understand that. We each have no-one social media can't hear one account there and we had discreet data collected by those companies in each of those those accounts. What we probably don't grasp is the enormity of how much data exists that? It's just on us out there. Control by the various aggregate irs and so so wh. What Solutions Does Privacy Law have for that or does it have any? There are various privacy. Laws are trying to control against this idea of big data aggregation many privacy laws though are not really set up in a way to protect against those secondary or let's say downstream harms harms privacy laws protect against the collection of data. They limit the collection of data the limit the first use of data they limit the first sale or transfer of data and they allow for certain rights sometimes like the right to access the right to deletion what we should be more concerned about though the harms of aggregation and the harm arm that From these large data brokers and what I haven't really seen so far are any good laws that really regulate the data brokers. I seen a few the proposals and a few laws that try identify them but nothing that really regulates against their specific harms. So I want to jump back to you a question that I think combined do picks and what we were just discussing about selling accounts though not selling data itself. which is if you're talking about? You know someone who's sort of rents out their Amazon account or rents out their facebook account that strikes me as another example of something. We've talked about a lot on this podcast which which is a sort of a degradation and trust right that you know now if I look at Amazon reviews. I don't necessarily trust that you know. All these five-star reviews are legitimate. Even though say a few years ago I might have been a little more naive and said wow like everyone loves this lightbulb so much and so bringing that into the political realm. One thing that I've seen recently that's really interesting is The Pete Buddha judge campaign his campaign security officer officer announced that they're basically filming the presidential candidate all the time at least when he's awake so they can disprove move any deep fakes that anyone makes of ham and this on the one hand is really interesting as a way of getting back that realm that aspect of trust right of saying we can prove that he did or he didn't do X.. We can prove that this is legitimate that it's not faked on the other hand that's obviously really invasive. And so there's a sort of there's a privacy benefit and a privacy harm in hand at the same time I mean. What do you think about this? As a hint of the road. We.
