NASA Announces Plans To Launch Chimpanzee Into Sun
"NASA is once again looking to further our knowledge of the universe and the effects. It has on life here on earth, which is exactly why the Space Agency is announced. It is now planning to launch a chimpanzee into the sun within the next ten years. The science world is calling the efforts a crucial step forward in solar exploration and better understanding how species react to being deposited into the sons twenty seven million. Degree plasma core for more on this monumental mission were joined by Opie our science reporter Rebecca Neal. Hi. Leslie Rebecca. How does NASA plan on pulling this off? Well, I, spoke with Nastas lead on the mission Tom Danes and he told me that chimpanzee will be put in a capsule that will contain several sophisticated instruments that would monitor how the animal reacts as it plunges into a burning ball of gas eight, hundred sixty. Five thousand miles in diameter. Here's Danes with some more details. The heat sensors to the chimpanzees body will provide us with real time data about what he's experiencing is he's in by the Sun's gravity as a close biological relative to our species. We believe his skin will react similarly to the sons extreme heat and aggressive UV radiation, and hypothetically his body will disintegrate at a similar rate to human beans right and if. The mission is successful. Hopefully, what we learned from this mission will pave the way for sending human astronauts into the sun on a regular basis. So is the idea here that there could maybe one day be a permanent colony on the sun for humans to get launch to in evaporate and a hellish fire on a regular basis well, Dan said that is a long term goal, but I they need to monitor how the. Chimpanzee handles the sons, ten thousand degrees, surface right patients whose key. Now, this is a bold mission but not the first of its kind correct. That's right a mission like this has happened before but on a smaller scale, for example, on NASA's first attempt to land on the moon with Apollo Eleven, the agency strapped and unprotected duck to the side of the space shuttle the duck perished immediately upon takeoff which helped NASA. Stand the benefits of being inside the capsule as opposed to outside of it. When shooting towards space, they've also experimented with abandoning several elephants on Mars and sending a capsule full of turtles deep into the void of space to be consumed by a black hole. These have all been instrumental to the revolutionary undertaking NASA announced today definitely what are the chances of something going wrong? Well, space travel is inherently dangerous as many Americans. Still, remember several horses never even made it into orbit aboard the space shuttle Challenger but Danes told me that they plan on testing their launch model thousands of times to ensure that the chimpanzee reaches the Sun's core safely before anything goes wrong on its way there there's no have any idea who will be manning this mission to the SUN NASA is keeping its potential chimpanzee roster under wraps right now but sources tell. Me The leading candidate is a seven-year-old chimpanzee named Bobo currently taking up residence at Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. NASA
Why Twitter is a Severely Underrated Platform
"Super committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we are going to talk about why twitter is a severely rated platform that I tell you what happened with twitter recently. What I did recently, where did you do? So I started running ads for like ten dollars a day or fifteen dollars a day and what happened was one of our big clients I think everyone knows the name they saw it and that led to a upscale conversation and let too much deeper conversations and not only that I'm running this ad right now basically like a blog post and more and more people are seeing it and people with like. Blue checkmark that are reputable investors or VC's or vendors there following me they're liking this is really good for branding her ten dollars fifteen dollars a day it's done so much for me right now and not only not ballers day without regaining growth winds, ten bucks a day growth wise negligible getting impressions. The most important thing is getting impressions on these both the reach my goal with these is the reach, and so you shouldn't be aiming for like. At least for me, I'm not aiming for conversions or anything like that I think if you're running ten dollars a day or maybe fifteen hundred dollars, the reason I started doing this was because I started seeing other people running these ads extra Wilkins in for example, from tiny capital, he just keeps running the same over fifty dollars a day but I remember him and that we talk about the rule fourteen, the rule seven, whatever I just think twitter. From ads perspective is very underrated but from a learning perspective I've also talked about how to me. It's the most important social network because I learned so much more from than other social networks. So when you're using your impressions beginning Yeah I mean let me just open it right now. So while we do that, why do you think is underrated platform? So twitter has a lot of smart high net worth people on there. It's not the sex. It's not like instagram. It's not like based. Youtube it's a place where you find the likes of like the e-leong must of the world when the Bill Gates in the role constantly communicate and they liked doing it themselves, it's not like having someone who works for them postings they themselves like going on twitter and tweeting, and conversely with others or that reason I think it's powerful because although they may not have the reach you can get access to really wealthy influential people on twitter in a much more easier way than you can on instagram or case Lincoln rainy their social. Yup. I have the numbers the so I guess I'm spending a little more I. Guess we wrapped up the budget a little bit so in the last seven days so it looks like about ninety five dollars spent I think we've wrapped up from ten dollars a day so six, hundred, seventy dollars in spend one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand impressions not the greatest CPM cost per thousand impressions but to Neal's point he hit the nail on the head the people that you're reaching our high net worth smart individuals that like to pontificate they like to act they want to show their wisdom. So that's why twitter is really underrated depends on what you're selling to. Out of the impression, how many did you get your site? Let's see well, but in general like there's a lot of channels like twitter Radha contrast, the lot of people don't talk about snapchat doll during its audiences. These underrated pop why we underrated platforms for civically. But the others as Wallace is not a lot of competition for advertising Baseba can google or instagram. Google would also be youtube based also the instrument, but they're all SACCHARIN. You look from the other channels they're much more affordable Lincoln that is thriving social network from ad standpoint. It is quite expensive is a lot of companies, zipper sales and recruiting people spend a lot of money on jobless other than that I found that the other networks much more affordable. Yeah. So here's the thing. Hey, it shows how am I at cloud formed the the second thing is it's actually not showing me clicks just because I'm focused on impressions cost result is giving me a CPM. So I am not seeing clicks right now on it, but I didn't tell you. Thousand. Yeah. So something impressions, dozen impressions it's not the best CPM's around five bucks or so but I can tell you based on the up sell, and then also the people that are engaging with me and the people that are falling me as well. It's worth its weight in gold. So use it. You don't have to use it for the ads side of things but
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,
How I Built Resilience: Alberto Perlman of Zumba
"Alberto we had John Foley, Peleton on a couple of weeks ago and saving Lincoln a bar three. Obviously, the industry as a whole has just been absolutely decimated, right? I mean twenty four hour fitness file for bankruptcy gyms across the country are struggling. Many of them may not survive at the same time working from home is really you know Anybody who's tried to get dumbbells online knows it's impossible to find them right now. Right I heard. There's a black market for dumbbells. Yeah. How has the Economic Crisis Affected Zimba? So so we set out and said, let's base our response to the pandemic and we started seeing this in January and February because we have instructors in Titan and our instructors in China were telling us hey, this is really bad. You guys have to prepare for this because if this. Gets out. This is not good. So we said we have to do three things. One most important thing how do we continue to help structure state generate income to how do we deliver a education virtually for people New People want to become instructors or existing instructors who need further education especially, if they're transitioning virtual and three, how do we keep our promise to make the world happy and healthy? The first thing we did was we allowed instructors to start teaching online. They started teaching zoom but Paulo to to that, we started developing our own platform and it's called Zen Studios Instense for Zoom Instructor, network. So in Studio and in studio allows instructors to lyceum their classes in allows them to upload prerecorded glasses with a licensed. It allows them to charge for their classes. It allows him to list their classes on for months, Zoom Dot Com. We really focused on his since studio concept to help our instructors generate income during the the lock them, and at the same time we said we are structures are not necessarily trained in using all this technology. So we better provide all the education that they need. So we created all these courses that were done through zoom and some are learning courses that instructors could take. To become what we call virtual fitness pros and tour surprise within a month and a half, we had about a million people a week taking Zuma classes virtually, which is amazing for a new virtual product. It was really on structure selling their students. Hey, non teaching online income, take my class virtually every week we launched improvements to the platform. So we added chat to the platform. So students can chat while you're taking the class we added emojis we added that thinks to the paywall so that Instructors could take payment, which every were launching new tech at a pace that our technology team had never done before, and I'm so proud of them because they really took it to the next level. Yeah. I mean you basically stood up a virtual platform within weeks. I mean I'm imagining that if you had a plan like, let's say a year ago you said, Hey, we want to do a virtual platform it would have taken you like a year to put together right and you do this In like six weeks. Yeah. Unbelievable. Working nights weekends. It felt like we were starting Zuma again it felt like you know how jeff vessels says they won. It really felt like they won we felt unstoppable. We're going at it. We were talking to instructors to get feedback on how to make the platform perfect for them, and at the same time we said we to also help our instructors and the world at large during the pandemic in other ways. So we created a community fund where we Gave a funds out to instructors directly affected by covert themselves who were hospitalized, who had family members that pass away or instructors that were because our instructors sometimes are. Their site job. So we had a lot of instructors who are nurses a lot huge population of nurses who are also instructors. So we help them their frontline workers, we help them with their services. So we created this community fund and we also did something that we call the one class, one meal program for every person who took a virtual class which. We make revenue on all the revenue goes to the instructors for every person takes a virtual class with donated meal a during the month of June, and we donated one point, one million meals to food banks around the world while. So Alberta's when when somebody signs up for a virtual class on the Zimba- platform, all that revenue pays for it goes to. The instructor yeah everything instructing well. So so I mean, how are you guys? I mean you're still a business you still have employees how're you kind of managing the business and I mean have you had to have lay-offs or furloughs for example? Yeah. So we didn't do any layoffs wouldn't do any for those. Surprisingly are clothing business is doing very well people. Buying fitness clothing to work out at home and we were able to manage. It obviously is not going to be of very profitable year because we made a lot of investments to make all these things happen but that's not our objective. This year objected this is about the people it's about the instructors is about their students is about our employees it's always been. And this year, it's even more about a just helping out others and a

Considerably, and also, of course, if someone's got your email address, any navigate some is the potential for doc seen or blackmail knows what you'd better tell me how they got our email address.

They say they can convert anonymous website visitors into names email addresses and even their home addresses boom. And I know sales sorted. posted. Another Chapter Jeff any incredibly they claim they can do surrounded by a third of all US web traffic cheese. Okay. Well, their claims earn press Whoa Kay, let's look a little bit more into this. They say that their services already been used you know that Chap Tucker Carlson on Fox News. Well he is one of the founders of a website quite right wing website surprise you it cooed the daily caller. That is one of the sites which is using exactly this technology right now, this potentially some could find out if your partial particular political views as well. Don't understand Outta sorry you've lost me. Okay. So how is the daily caller this website run by Tucker Carlson, taking advantage of this technology so they are a customer of this firm could get emails. Okay. Get emails is run by a guy called Adam. Robinson right is a former Lehman brothers employee and his girlfriend Helen Sharp. And they've actually put together a video where they explain how that thing works. He can go and check that out on Youtube link but I can explain in very simple. Work. So, there are lots of scammy kind of websites on the Internet surprise surprise. No, there are no a shock. So there are websites which will claim Oh. We can get you better health insurance. So we can get better car insurance just enter your details here. And we will go away and find an answer for you right and what you don't do when you fill out those what most people don't do. They don't read all the terms and conditions and remained the new mock me about every week when. You're one of the unusual people who actually does that crew, but those sites will gather all that information and not really set up to. So you health insurance in countries, they do sometimes or read you. But what they're really doing these crates and a huge database of people's contact details. Okay and they are then selling those two people and that is all apparently legal because people chose to give their information and they agreed to the terms and conditions to be marketed up soon, the I've always thought those sites you know like insurance compare sites or mortgage compare sites I. think that's exactly what a lot of them are doing. I think some of them are legitimate getting A. Lot of the deals, but they say we are sharing this with interested parties on purpose to get you the numbers you want right really have to share that information with third parties. They don't have to give you a list here. Exact people were doing because it's changing all the time and some of them might be you know very bonafide companies. Some might be shade or one of the companies which is buying this kind of information is this company get emails and what they've done is they've generated md five hashes. So check some for all of those email addresses. They reckon they got about half a billion now and they're adding about one million more every day. And they say they've also partnered with mailing lists firms so that when folks click on a Lincoln newsletter and go to website a cookie can be set computer containing that MD five check some for their email address on their computer. And so what they're able to do is when you go to the daily caller cool website or never website, which is running, get email script, they can compare the hash in the Czech some to the hash in get emails database, which they've gathered from these sites around the world and they've got all information which you filled in on that full. Yeah, that's good instincts
7 New Ways to Grow Your SEO Traffic
"To another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su. Hotel and today we're GonNa talk about seven new ways to grow your seo traffic. So I'll start first because they had a Webinar on new ways to do SEO. So the first way to grow your SEO traffic new way to grow your seo traffic would be to think about on surp- seo but does that mean exactly so Serb assertion that result page, and as you know Seo now is getting more difficult because the search result pages are so dynamic you have sometimes you might have apps you have knowledge box you might have featured snippets you might have site links there's a lot. Of changes happening. So what you gotTa do from your and we've talked about Faq Schema before in the past, we've talked about all these different tactics those all fall on the search engine result page. You GotTa think about how you can do on Seo part of what you can do using software or you can do it on your own, but you can use our software. If you want click flow, you can test your titles Meta description and that is basically one element of on as he'll. There's a lot more that goes into that but I just want to give you one piece. Number two is create new formats of content. So you don't have to just do text based content. You've already seen that Google ranks videos, but did you know Google also rains podcasts? So now crawling podcasts transcribing and indexing them and getting driving traffic to them as loss. So don't create text based content, considering creating all the different types of media formats that people really leveraging these days such as video audio off Cassie I should out there make she include keywords with whatever you're talking about your research on. What you'll find is some of that context also start ranking. For many listings are pushing up just classroom pushing up just video results. So it's a way to grab more search traffic bubbling people already. Number three kind of alluded to this a little earlier. But if you Google, Matthew Woodward Faq Schema. You'll find a way to get Faq. Schema. Set Up, and in some cases you click the rate actually might go higher. This is kind of continuing to follow the theme of on Surp- SEO number four by websites now for their back lanes buying for their brand and their existing traffic and there exists. You'll traffic merging into your site makes you deleted duplicate content merge than duplicate content together what it mean by duplicate is not word for word content. But if I have article on Seo someone else has an article on Seo and they both talk bout began as a test yo you don't have to pay design begins Guy Teissier you'd WanNa merge tackle only do that. What you'll find is Marshall Tropical to ring for Marquee Words All. Right. Number five. So even though we talk about it, I don't think a lot of people do this enough think about how you can build your own widget or how you could build your own software where those will basically because those to me, there are a little more defensible than making new book or a new Info Graphic, for example so An example, this Neil night I talked about this website when covert initially hid a lot of late in the United States a lot of layoffs started happening. So these layoff tracker started going up I was actually looking at one of the layoff trackers recently, sixteen hundred referring domains going that's a lot of lakes. So if you can build something, that's helpful. Genuinely helpful. The people that's very lincoln asset. This is evergreen SEO tactic but nobody has ever talked about talk about Lincoln assets, but don't talk too much about using a product to help with branding or product to build lakes. Another thing that you can end up doing is. Look at popular tools on the Internet that are Mir Space Adam to your website. You can find a lot like code canyons stuff like that will find his they tend to create a lot of brand queries more BRANCUSI's. You have the easier to rank on Google. So yes, eric talked about lingual acids but you can also get tools that create more brand queries will you'll find as you rankings for all Europeans go up even if you're not getting into links. All right number seven kind of similar. Building on the example I gave from number five where you build a where you lied with a product could be a widget as well. But let's use Neil Uber suggests as an example, he has a lot of data, a lot of click stream data. And basically, the great thing about that is that he can make really data loaded post that nobody else can do so I remember recently, I just read something from about how everything you know about click the rate has changed, but they were pulling proprietary data that they have. If you have your own product, you're able to glean zone insights and you can produce. Content that stands out on its own which you have liquid asset that's helping you produce more link cable assets with your content.
Our Season Finale Starring the Founders of She Podcasts and Skyes husband Don
"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft. I'm your host. Sky. Pillsbury. This is a post show episode, but we're doing things just a little differently today I all chat with Elsie Escobar and Jessica Kupperman about last week's interview with sixteen nineteen producers, a Diese Egan and Anti Brown Jessica and Elsie our the founders of she podcasts a community that helps women and non binary podcasters through every step of their podcast journey. The pair met online years ago and joined forces to create a free facebook group that now has over seventeen thousand members. Jessica Elsie also hosts a really fun podcast called she podcasts in which they talk about all things podcasts, and they are the founders of she podcast live an in person conference I attended their inaugural event last year and it was wonderful. Their next event is scheduled for next. October. that's October of twenty twenty. One For the second half of our show due to popular demand I am bringing back my husband. We will take a look back at the season. I hope you enjoy today's conversations and I'll be back at the end to wrap things up. I am thrilled today to have with me, Elsie Escobar and Jessica Cup for men who are the founders of she podcasts. They are also the women I consider to be my podcast Mama's. Even. Though I am almost one hundred percent sure that I'm over than them both. So with that welcome Jessica and Elsie, I'm so happy to have you here. Think. You yes. All right guys you are my guest hosts and I'm your subject and I'm ready for you go. Just you have the questions I will chip in. Okay. There are so many shows and episodes right now in podcasting about race and racial relations. So why did sixteen nineteen speak to you specifically? Honestly it made me feel angry that I had not Known so much of what was talked about in this podcast. Hadn't learned any of it in school and I went to a very good public school and yet I felt like everything I was hearing felt new to me obviously I knew basic facts about Abraham Lincoln and the civil war and things like that. But I did not understand any of the nuance and I certainly did not understand how happened what felt like so long ago right it did sorta feel to me like ancient history did not understand how connected it was to our current world. For example, healthcare I had no idea that I mean our healthcare's. Louis it was mind blowing like the fact that we have the worst healthcare system of any developed nation and the fact that that can be traced. So clearly back to the fact that we did not want to allow black enslaved people or even black UNIN slaved people to have equal healthcare. You know the fact that we can trace that back is. Rushing and tragic, and it's tragic for all of us you know and those kinds of realizations just felt so jarring and I had a real emotional reaction to listening to the podcast both because I just felt so much more empathetic to people who are living the black experience in the US but also it was also emotional because I felt cheated of that knowledge and so the reason why I wanted to talk to the people and I still feel so incredibly fortunate that I was able to get them on the show and bring shine. Any kind of light on that for other people was incredibly rewarding and that's why I wanted to have him on on the show they. It's funny. I've thought about this like they talk in the episode about how they want to lift up Nicole's work and I felt that in talking to them, I was hoping to lift up their work and Nicole's work. You know sort of getting even more Meta here but just wanting people to recognize and see this podcast and maybe have the same kind of transformative experience listening to it that I did.

"President Trump has given Microsoft until September fifteenth to negotiate a deal to buy a piece of Tiktok that's a step back from trump's threat on Friday that he would ban the popular Chinese video APP, which he calls a national security risk. Let's bring in Greg Remai- Otas he's an editor at Reuters and was one of the reporters who broke the story and Greg Microsoft said in a statement that it's committed to acquiring tick tock but there are a few things that they I need to work out what are some of the main concerns over the next few weeks? So, they need to convince US national security officials that TIKTOK will not offer any backdoor to China's government were to be separated from its current owner by dance and be owned by Microsoft. All of TIKTOK data on American users is already stored in the United States, but because talks platform. It's algorithms is code are shared by other by dance APPs US officials need to be convinced that if the word to be a sale to. Microsoft. By then sworn, be left holding the keys and still have access to the APP let's break down just a little bit. So talks parent company, which is a Chinese company has taken steps in the past to try to appease US regulators on this front. But president trump still says it's a national security risk just remind US briefly how we got here. So we wrote a sexually broke news last year the Committee on foreign investment in the United States had opened an investigation into Tiktok. This is a US government panel, the scrutinises deals for potential national security risks. But of course what has happened since then is that relations between the United States and China have deteriorated. The president told reporters less last week that she was sexually looking at banning tiktok. But we reported yesterday that he will now allow this process to run, and if process will basically give forty five days for Microsoft and bind them to see the negotiate a deal that can you know a piece US national security officials So, this Microsoft deal would involve them buying tick. Tock Service here Canada Australia and new. Zealand so does that mean that this parent company would still operate the service in the rest of the world? How exactly what that work? That's the key question show. We understand that as far as those countries are concerned, Microsoft would be taking over but like the the. will be in the detail because this is being don show by will have no access no backdoor TIKTOK and to be fair that's probably why you show the president and some of his in the White House not being able to make up their minds because it's been like a very big question mark can you know that the -nology of Tiktok really be taken away from by them in a way that satisfies US concerns. Microsoft owns linked in, but otherwise, it isn't really well known as a social media space. How big of a deal would this acquisition of Tiktok for Microsoft I mean would then put it in the same space to compete more directly with the facebooks in the snapchat. So the world absolutely would be transformative and you may have noticed at the congressional hearings last week when. Four big technology company CEOS attracted the ire of lawmakers Republican, and Democrat Microsoft wasn't there. Beyond Lincoln Microsoft mainly focuses on. Business Software and and this you know and map that both hammer million. Users in the United States, would you know give Microsoft one of you the social media industries, gems, and? Turn them into. A very big player she'll be. To see how the president navigates the politics of this deal with his own base menu supporters are suspicious of big technology companies. They perceive any inherent bias against conservatives, social media, and at the same time you probably over the weaker many of his you know Republican supporters, Lindsey Graham, particular tweeting, making statements, encouraging the president to clinch the deal with Microsoft show. You be very interested to see how trump navigator this. Yeah, I mean some of the speculation is that trump backed off of earlier threats because it would alienate the party's younger users ahead of the election do you think that this deal will actually happen? The big unknown here is this technology issues we discussed this you sure absolute seperation back of suddenly has the cash to pay for this. The question is, can a deal be put together? That appeases the hawks in DC. That's Greg Room Yoda's editor of corporate finance in Deals at Reuters Greg. Thank you. Thank you.
Trump wants to ban Tik Tok
"Actually let's talk a little bit about Tick Tock today I performed this morning. An Act of rebellion. I downloaded installation talk on my iphone because who knows how much longer I'll be able to do it it's very confusing I don't know what's going on. Tick Tock, which is owned by the Chinese company Bite Dance Safest that committee. Or foreign investment in the United. States apparently is investigating I. Think they actually issued a ruling saying that like, wow away tick tock was a threat to the United States One of the ways tiktok became really big as by acquiring a couple years ago musically, which is really I think from what I see on. tiktok kind of the backbone of what Tick Tock is these days, which is lip synching or acting or dancing to an original track It's it's very entertaining. It's a it's probably the most engaging social network out there. But apparently, it's a threat to our way of life. On Friday the president on Air Force One. said that he was about to ban it as soon as yesterday. From the United States I'm not sure under what law safest can do it I think. But I don't know if the president can by executive order banning application. then for the last week Microsoft Been. Negotiating to buy the American rights to talk to kind of create a tick tick Tock America that would be separate from the Chinese bite. Dance. TIKTOK. But then the president says I'M GONNA ban it but I don't want anybody to buy it. So, micro-. Microsoft said. Threw their hands off and said figure it out and there. They didn't end the conversation with bite dance. Apparently, they were fairly close but they're not forwarding it until they find out what happens I'm GonNa make a prediction. Nothing is going to happen except now people are going to download and use TIKTOK. Brianna is tick tock a threat to national security. It's not a unique threat to national security. We need to have a conversation about the kinds of information social media APPS are able to download from our phones. We all remember the scandals of facebook on android downloading your tire phone list gang everyone you've ever called. We need to have a conversation about that, but there's there's really no evidence that what Tiktok is pulling is any greater than what you know facebook instagram these other social media sites are. Pulling so far. So we need a wider discussion about that. How's it just want to say I wish I could tell you this was just trump in the Republicans that would make me very happy. My heart broke today to see Chuck Schumer on the Sunday morning shows advocating the same thing tech talk. So you know it's it is we need to have a conversation about national security and the amount of information were giving up but it's I think. To just focus on TIKTOK. Sign of. Phobia. Or Zena Phobia Paris, you seem like a Tiktok user. I that's only because you're younger than. I. Did recently re downloaded when this whole. Wanted to make sure that I had it. I'm sure is a common response. I agree with everything the Brown said in the sense that I don't know I've been particularly disturbed by. The reactions to take talks, data collection both from the left and right and just. Experts in the tech field generally over the past couple of months because it is definitely coming from a place of seeing phobia. I mean, we have so many different. American. Made APPS that. Do many of the same things I mean one thing that I've seen noted quite often as to talk has the ability to see what you've. You know copied near Clipboard when guests so do most of the apps you have on your phone. Is Operatives. It's not a tiktok specific problem. This came up because of Iowa's fourteen, which is in public Beta now so people are suddenly using it and dozens of applications. I. Think must be a library that they all subscribe to infect somebody a couple of weeks ago. Somebody told me that it was. Ad Library I use of what a clearly noninvasive program from panic software Call Code editor, which lets me log into my Server. with SSh and and edit files and things like that and it was. I got the same thing that you get on Iowa's fourteen O, coders looking clipboard every time I typed to character. Now I don't think coded only panic software famous for an FTP program and this H. Program is at spying on me obviously, they're not. they're using the same code library. So it's a, it's a, it's a bug. That's what Lincoln Microsoft's linked in said as well. So. I think it's also just one of those things where if you're building an APP especially in. The Tom I. Don't know there was a time when absence of for being built were there wasn't this conversation about security and privacy. Why would map designers not take the position of? Yeah. All the things maybe we'll need that information talk said quite credibly. We're just looking to see if you put a url on your clipboard so we can pasted in. That seems credible I. Don't know if you need to do it every single time I type of character that seems like more that book I can tell you firsthand from developing an Iowa it's often easiest just to get it submitted to the APP store to take a bunch of permissions and It's just it's like you're trying to debugging in. Store, to accept it is just quirky. I can't tell you how many times I in other APP developers have. Just it's a very, very quirky system. So I, think this is just in Beta. I think it's really important to point out as far as the impetus for this I personally do not think it's a coincidence that tiktok was widely credited for disrupting trump's Tulsa rally a couple of weeks ago and Sarah Cooper is so famous for she's making five star she's she's amazing and those videos are brutal to trump and I I don't. That's a coincidence. She does trump limps licks lip sync. And I was talking to a friend said you know is the trump on TV I can't understand what he's saying but then I watched Cooper and that makes sense Sarah ads expressions and Gestures and all kinds of makes sense all of us and so I don't think the president should be so quick to to not like Sarah purchase he's adding context Might have something to do with it certainly in his mind because we know. You know. I don't know what he's going to do to Cape Pop stands because they were the other the other group that apparently figured out that you could register took on trump's team has got to be wise enough to know you can't take on the capons stands. Being. The capon stands the United States would crumble. Yes. That would be it would be over right. You just can't win against the K pop stands So. They were both advocating people sign up for the Tulsa Rally and not not show and Honestly the fault lies with Brad Par Scout trump's former campaign manager and his campaign team for believing all those registrations and building a giant outdoor stage. Giant parking lot so that the millions of people who are going to be coming because they all registered would have somewhere to be, and then I loved. Well, I shouldn't say that that sounds partisan was interesting to see the one person with the baby stroller in that giant area and the rest of the arena half full or third full So I could see why he might be a little angry about that. Is there. No, Matt. And I'm not putting you in the position of speaking for the government I want to say that in fact, we should have said that. That Nazi for the. Federal government but you also having worked Akiko Google you understand how you know a little bit about how this stuff works the the there's not any proof that while way for instance, has ever done anything. Particularly Evil they've done some commercial espionage apparently, but nothing could particularly evil but there's the potential if they run the entire five G. Network that at some point, they could inject malicious software to the network or shut it down. Is What could Even even sounds stupid asking it. What could take time do? It's the forbidden APP. If you think about it if you don't have it on your phone, it could disappear at any time. No I think it's it's less about that although you do see companies like Amazon saying, Hey, on your work phone or work device please don't install. And they did it. Because they realize Oh we do business with these guys. Let's not this them off but wells Fargo did that I think the Department of Defense I don't know about you sds, but it's reasonable if you've got a company phone. Probably shouldn't have facebook or instagram on it either you right? Yeah. I keep my twitter and all that stuff very far away from work phone. It's my it's my personal account, but you know it's I can understand why people want to have just a a sense of okay. Let's be careful. Let's see what's going on and then You know just making sure that you can depend on the. Tools all the way down reflections on trusting trust. You can put things into a compiler, which then you can remove it from the source code and turns out that thing can stay in the compiler for years and years and years. So you know you don't WanNa be load bearing on any particular technology that you can't quite vouch for his guesses what people are thinking, what would be the legal? How could a president ban an APP in the United States I was thinking about this in the one thing the United States government is very effective at is We we we went after Isis in I sell at a very effective way instead of this Ip address to a recruitment site you can't access it. So my my guess would be the executive order would basically grafter the ISP's and say you can't go to this particular ISP but think about that I know of VPN products is sponsor show sponsored mind and to know how few seconds would take the average teenager together VPN account to just keep their tiktok going. Yesterday I downloaded the tiktok cap the first video that came up credit account 'cause I forgot my previous password was a if Tiktok it's banned. Here's how to get around it. You don't Vpn you can go into the settings, your phone, change your country of origin to Canada and then You're great. Exactly I mean it's not enforceable basically So I mean one thing Leo I think. Matt and I would probably agree that we do need to. I don't know if it's more oversight from the point of sale like on the APP store or Google play I I don't know if it's kind of an External Code audit policy for these kinds of APPs on their own by countries I. Think we agree we we need more oversight and we need to make sure all of these are not stealing data from people and just to get people very brief history lesson you know Edward Snowden had some very serious allegations about our own spying agencies using. Facebook to gather intelligence on people all around the world there's evidence for that. There's no hard evidence at this point the Tiktok is doing any of this. So if we're serious about doing this, the answer isn't to further balkanize the United States from the rest of the world the answers to form coalitions with other countries say look if you're going to operate here in, you know if you're gonNA have the software operating in our country here, the rule you have to follow you can't just arbitrarily download people's Phone books, there's going to be You know civil fights. That's clearly the way to go is got to be bigger than just tiktok. I'm just looking at Tick Tock on my iphone. It has access to my photos because I gave it access to my photo so I could put a profile picture on there. it gives me notifications I could turn that off. That's that's a push though that's not a poll. Background APP refresh means it can run in the background and cellular data doesn't ask for. location data doesn't ask for I mean facebook asks for ten times more. That's why I don't have it on my phone. I. mean the worst thing Tiktok does is waste millions of hours a productivity, and maybe that's a recent ban I don't know. But I, just I don't understand how it could be used. If it's not getting location permissions, how could it be used maliciously and I think it is getting location position. I know that I've know anecdotally at least from a couple of friends whenever they let's say go to Connecticut to visit family or something they will suddenly get Connecticut. Themed Tiktok content or something similar. Okay. that could just be from. Connection you can get that from the IP address so they could get a Geo location through IP address without asking APP without telling apple that they're doing that that would make sense. Okay. So they're getting them. Every cannon probably, I hate to say it probably does do that.

Not Flying This Summer? Many Americans Are Hitting The Road In RVs
"Flying is not all that attractive these days but with gas prices, low travelers are hitting the road some of them worried about staying in hotels and eating in restaurants have decided to go a different way they're taking an RV, a recreational vehicle for the first time Melanie peoples has more like a lot of people amy holded has never driven anything bigger than an SUV, but she's about to get behind the wheel of a thirty foot long house on wheels. Getting their first look at their home for the next ten days amy her mom Sandra and especially her twelve year old son Duncan are thrilled. Why Goal. Very. It looks plenty big for their trip for Madison Alabama to Cape Cod Massachusetts there's a table, a kitchen, a back bedroom, even a shower and bathroom not to mention walls that slide out to make their living space even bigger. Cheryl Huddle is the owner of the RV. Okay. So normally start at the front door we're just GONNA go around and everything's been cleaned with bleach because of covid you wouldn't think it but it takes two hours for huddled to show hold it everything she needs to know there's all the indoor stuff how the benches turned into bed when to hook up to electricity when to use the generator, how to turn on the generator not to mention all the outside stuff like power cord water hookup right now we get into the Control panel. Air Conditioner where're you headed to this? Wasn't the vacation hold each who works us an esthetician in a salon had planned for her family. They were all supposed to fly to why and sure they could have just put that off for another year. But Amy wanted something for making memories this summer my Dad Alzheimer's, and my mom has a progressive memory loss as well and I knew. I don't know how many trips we have left in us. You know there's a lot of uncertainty right now and I, just kind of went with it just kept thinking about it and kept thinking about it and i. just kind of jumped off the cliff and didn't that is not to say, she doesn't expect challenges. But as she's navigating her new role as a single mom she's discovering learning to overcome them is a good thing and so there was a little bit of uncertainty of of doing it myself. But I've. Always, been able to do it myself before for the most part on you know struggle sometimes but I think I can do it.

How the pandemic is affecting music venues in Chicago
"It's great to talk to you. And for people who don't know Joe Shanahan, he is the man behind Metro Club Chicago and also G Man Tavern. And smart Bar. And Joe. You're the man that we need to talk to about the health of our music venues. And what's happening with this pandemic? How you how you holding up? Good morning And thanks for having me on Bob, You know, I think about the history that I've had with you. You were the first interview I did almost 40 years ago. That man you're with. A local affiliate. When I ran my first club here in Chicago, so you know here we are. You know Metro's going to celebrate its 38th anniversary and 2020 and Not quite the way that we wanted to, you know, basically tell you straight up, You know we need and trying. We're trying to figure out funding and relief from the state, the federal and the city level. We were state mandated closures on the march on March 13th trying that their team was the last Basically day of business at Metro, Um, and it is called all the music venues across the city to close their doors. We will be that we were the first to close and we will be the last to re open. Um, we don't see opening until we have some kind of Immunisation Andorra vaccine, So it's imperative that we protect the great music community. The great music venues right here in Chicago, and, uh, just so you know, quickly. I mean, my my list call if every day was managers, agents, bands, you know, creatives. My call is now is, you know might quickly Dick Durbin. You know, Doc words. You know, we're calling on the governor's office. The D O e B A G P. I know more initials for Ah, people here in Chicago, Illinois. Washington lawyer thought I wouldn't know. But that's really what it's all about, is just trying to figure out a way to keep the venues in mothballs until we can safely reopen because no one part of civil, the Chicago Independent venue League or never, the National Independent venue Association wants to be open until we can do it safely for the public. Yeah, I was reading about the Chicago Independent venue League and the hashtag save our stages and very important, important. That's a collection of more than 20 local music venues and Joe your place there, 37 30 North Clark and your long established and not that you don't Have to struggle through these times with some of these other clubs are not going to be as fortunate. How many do you think will not be able to reopen? How many are we going to lose? How many music venues around Chicago are going to go away for good? Well, first. I don't think that we're sitting on a pot of gold at 37 30. We're in the same fight as you know the hideout. Lincoln Hall, Sheba's Value Hall. You know, Rose's lounge across the city, you know, sleeping village So many of the great new and established then use such as the Big Theatre. The Riviera. You know, Jam Productions is involved in our fight, too. You know it. It's not easy to look at a business where you have no revenue. And you're trying to pay utilities rent mortgages insurance license. Now we've gone to the city of Chicago on ask for some kind of rebate or mention painting even on our licenses.

How I Built Resilience: Taha Bawa of Goodwall
"Hey, everyone and welcome to how I built. This resilience edition on these episodes were talking with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're thinking creatively during such a disruptive time and today we're GonNa hear from Ta the CO founder of Good Wall Good Wall is a social network that connects high school and college graduates with jobs and scholarships. Today Good Wall has raised over sixteen million dollars with more than a million users on the platform I. Spoke with Taha, from his company headquarters in Switzerland where he gave me a rundown of goodwill's mission for people who've never heard of goodwill just tell us how how does it work? It's essentially a mobile platform that's designed for the next generation. We started off with high school students helping them build up their first profile showcase themselves in a way that I'm accentuates their extracurricular activities in particular, connect them to opportunities mostly scholarships in colleges and all. This happens within a positive and supportive community. Over time, we've grown with our members into the college and young professional space. Our whole goal is to level the playing field, maximize the potential of as many people as possible. So it's been compared to linked in is that a fair comparison I? Think there are similarities however, we're really focused on on our part, which is this next generation starting as early as sixty and guiding them through almost Sherpa in. Them through the future of earning learning and those opportunities. There are various features that we have that they don't, and we're really focus from a user experience perspective, and then from a community perspective, it's it's very different posts don't work here. You wouldn't find students talking about being on the chess team being on the robotics team being on etc etc on goodwill mean if you are, let's say eighteen years old and you're interested in applying to college. What does it look like you go to? While you create a profile for yourself and and then what you're going to goodwill, you help yourself our initial early adopters were mostly international school students who maybe didn't have as much guidance as others or since the US who maybe didn't have as much guidance from their parents from college counselors it come on. Here's he would other people are doing they'd be matched with colleges and universities and. Also. With scholarships based on their data on their profiles and then they'd be able to connect with like minded youth. So we had this girl based out of Jordan who was really into robotics science and unfortunately no one really around her who had that those similar interests and she was able to find others like her in the US connected Internet. NASA did incredible things afterwards actually many of our students have gone bound exclusive opportunities at. Like Oxford and others that we've partnered with an. Super fulfilling perspective. Yeah. It's really caused US checking it out last night and it's it's a little bit like if you didn't have a mentor or a guidance counselor like here you go. Yeah definitely I think a lot of early adopters were privileged in the sense that they had a lot of ambition and maybe they went to good schools. But over time we've especially with last year we've really. Put a lot of effort and a lot of energy towards helping youth who are maybe a little under privileged that privilege is actually not necessarily one hundred percent linked to financial situation but it can be for example, we're doing now with UNICEF death and other organizations in Africa for example, is running programs they are and were really helping you bring out their ideas, build up their confidence show who they. are in connect opportunities and it's been really really fulfilling and we expect to do more underrepresented communities in the US. For example, we're doing more and more there. That's where the biggest room impact is. At the end of the day, we are a social enterprise and it's very fulfilling to help youth who go to elite schools and connect them to lead universities and colleges, but it's even more fulfilling. Even more important for us to step in where the impact Delta's the biggest for, for example, youth in Africa who insert African countries that just don't have any exposure don't have opportunity. Don't have the guidance but do have access to a phone and can has result go through. So we're really trying to do more there in particular and are you started this company in two thousand fourteen with your brother? Where did the idea come from? So my it was my brothers idea both of us were born in Switzerland we lived in Iran the US came back to Switzerland. Our parents used to work in the humanitarian sector. My father worked for or Serb refugees around thirty years, and we experienced a lot growing up. We was like quite a contradiction going skiing on the weekend in in a very affluent privileged, no bubble in Switzerland whereas at the same time, we'd go in summer vacation and give candy out to refugee kids who are age your ten eleven and that that really did shake US quite a bit in throughout our upbringing we realized that we are. We are I'm here not because I'm smart but because I was lucky osborne that could have been born two doors down in that, my life would have been very different and I'm confident because of the experiences I had rather than because I'm innately able to do so and that's really what pushed us to say we were lucky in this sense what would happen if we were able to give those opportunities in terms of particularly experiences. So education is one thing traditional education is one thing but particularly experiences to millions of youth around the world what would happen how can we change things and that's where we thought it has to be mobile first it has. To be a digital solution and it has to be able to tackle millions and we wanted to go a step further. We said it's good to maximize one's potential but hopefully, we can do that in a win. We're very idealistic in that sense in a way that it maximizes or improved society as well or impacts society positively, which is our mission statement that if we have enough people that are exposed to not only improving themselves but as so often it's a form of education knowing what's out there if I hadn't gone to refugee camps or if I didn't have the background where my parents are Richard from Sri Lanka, would I really be so inclined to How this positive impact who knows I did have that chance I view that as an opportunity to give those opportunities in showcase through volunteering through being aware through connecting to people from different backgrounds. Hopefully, we can move the world forward I. Think it's needed now more than ever, right? Yeah. For Sure Tyler, the business for a second I think you've got around fifty employees the world you've got offices in Switzerland, the US Germany Serbia the Philippines mean you're growing you've got presumably some cash runway but these are tough economic times. I mean Lincoln just laid off a thousand people, their record numbers of people in the US for unemployment. So first of all. How is your revenue been in your business been impacted by the global economic slowdown? Yeah. I mean when it happens I think the first week where we started notice he was getting really serious I. Remember it. The first thing we did was we we had a board meeting and we talked about, okay what's our cash situation and let's make sure we get through this are along a be while maintaining the team for two reasons. One is like you don't want. Downward debt spiral. But also because we have the opportunity to have real impacting this time if we make the changes in adapt effectively, but we won't be able to do so if we don't have the team to do it so we've actually hired over the past few months and we've actually grown over the past few months and we've adapted to do. So the first week was really about scenario planning getting through that after that, we assume the worst but we. Ourselves decided. Well, there's definitely GONNA be less demand for recruitment is definitely less hires which hurts us which hurts our users or are members and we said, okay how can we can we help because if they come on in the no jobs? Well, it's a very bad experience, but it's also it's hurting us. So what we did was we put we put together this program better together and other challenges where youth can develop work experience at the end of it. They get certificates that show that they've accomplished these different challenges participated in it, and at the end, it can be used as work experience towards all of our partner companies. So it's actually giving them something to do some hope, and at the same time, this is generating revenue for us as one example of revenue for us. Another example is just before the crisis a part of our model is we work with large partners and a couple of these large partnership so. Leading recruitment than leading education routes, stunts or came to a halt. And then I don't know if this is despite coverted or because of covid other opportunities came about we've now partnered over the course of Kobe with market leaders in markets that we are not present in or were very marginally presents and he's actually allowing us to take up extra market share and grow in more significant way to timber onwards. Let. Let me ask you about the demographic that you target. Right I mean and I'm Gonna I'M GONNA use this term Gen Z.. Always cringe when I say because I remember like when I was in my twenties and people talked about Gen-x and their slackers and I would just cringe and you're older people talk about Gen xers and I was like, what are you talking about but just just to make this kind of simple we'll we'll just say Gen Z.. So if you're Gen Z. I'm sorry it's annoying I know. This is a really challenging economic moment if you are in high school now and you're going into college or if you're in college, there's a pretty good chance. You'RE GONNA GRADUATE INTO A world with very few jobs. You know a world that we haven't seen certainly since two, thousand, eight, nine and ten but maybe far far more challenging than that. What's your sense I mean? What do you think I mean do do you think that's that's actually true that that is likely to be the case for the next three, four, five years or more. Yeah, I think whether or not we go through a deep recession with mass unemployment particularly for the Youth USA next three four five years very probable that US at least in the short run or to suffer they're normally the last to be hired the first to be fired and that's justified for various reasons including ethical. Oh, they have less commitments than, for example, someone with kids, but it is incredibly difficult and the mental toil of, let's say an eighteen year old doesn't know what's coming up next we need to be able to be resilient and we need to be able to learn how to learn and adapt because we just don't know what's going to happen. So they could be a second. Downturn there could be a third downturn. It could be sustained downturns and US like across society but in particular for the youth they we have an opportunity they have an opportunity to take this and say, okay, it doesn't kill me. It might make me stronger and I can learn from this develop that resilience that five, six, ten years from now I'm able to deal with the next crisis in a more in a stronger way because I'm going to have to do that and some of the skills that need to be developed in my in my opinion or entrepreneurial thinking that ability to be flexible and resilient we we need to do more though the on just the the these massive stimulus packages and. Is trying to do whatever they can for sure this generation needs the government needs to intervene to be able to organizations needs to be able to intervene to support them to the best of their abilities in terms of developing skills and able to resilient. When we come back in just a moment, I'll talk with Taha about college graduates who will probably face a shrinking job market over the next few years stay with us. I'm Guy Roz and you're listening to how I built this resilience edition from NPR. For this podcast and the following message come from the American Jewish World Service working together for more than thirty years to build a more just and equitable world learn more at age aws dot org. Hey welcome back to how I built this resilience edition despite the economic slowdown tie and his company good wall have been able to grow their team and stay afloat. But as jobs are drying up across the globe. Many college graduates are looking for opportunities and can't find any if you're like in your early twenties now and you're looking for an opportunity and you can't find one. What would you recommend a young person? Do Who's who's graduating college is just entering the workforce and is kind of trying out different potential career pass. Is it a good time to just steer clear of the workforce for a while and get some more education which in the US means more debts? What do you think? Yeah, I think. Definitely, trying is important, but this might just be an opportunity to start your own thing. You know a lot of great companies came out of the last crisis because they just couldn't find jobs or that opportunity just wasn't there for your. So maybe start one's own thing. It's never been easier to start a business. It's never been easier to try something new. So if even. If it doesn't work. That's incredible work experience. You know when we talk to HR owes of some of the leading companies in the world, what are they looking for or what were they looking for before the crisis indefinitely after is that ability to be entrepreneurial even if you're working for fortune five hundred, so it can't hurt best case scenario you build something. Amazing. Worst case scenario. Fail and you take those skills and you leverage those skills and you keep your mind active. It's so important from a mental health perspective, keep your mind active and then apply them when the market comes back, which will at one point another opportunity. If if maybe starting yourself isn't it join some friends or join or reach out to small startups definitely volunteer is an opportunity. There are a lot of NGOs are nonprofits that need help or need support right now, build up your work experience gained some experience concrete tangible work experience that differentiates further rather than just having eight twelve months in your resume which are empty. Unfortunately, it might not help financial side and that's where that's where one has to be creative and it's it's just really tough and that's What does the government intervention on that front need to be because there's some that just can't afford to do what I just said, which is volunteer or build your own company because they don't have that safety net that don't have that opportunity in and unfortunately there in we're almost out of ideas because he go back to college, you just talked about extra debt but for some unfortunately are going to have to do it, and that leads to more a more philosophical discussion on what is there so much debt attached to a college education where you know in Switzerland, for example, I paid for my undergraduate I paid around a thousand dollars a year it's a leading edge I mean it's like A. Top universities and so that's a that's another discussion. Yeah. I agree with you I think that this is a moment to be entrepreneurial and it's challenging because you're you're right. I mean not everybody can do that from an employer's perspective you mentioned human resource officers, and by the way you're right I mean a human resource officer is very attracted to an applicant who started a business or try to start up in it failed. Because as you say, that's incredible life and work experience. What are some of the characteristics and sort of ways that quote Unquote Jersey works that might be different from previous generations maybe what their expectations for example? Yeah. It's something that comes up quite often the expectations are are huge I think even if we look at the generation before part of it is there needs to be in there. Always has been this need for grits for determination. I think post Covid, we're going to have very likely incredibly resilient and determined generation I. Think it's it's really great for I mean it's it's very tough. Love going to suffer and I hope I hope it will be as as few as possible but coming out of this generally on the whole, there's good reason to believe that this generation. is going to be really conscious a bit like after World War Two really conscious of financials very conscious sauce how lucky they are how privileged quickly things can change how precarious the society within which we live is actually it's a disease that, yes, it's it's it's it's serious, but it could have been a lot worse. It could have been worse could be one hundred exists and it's brought. Our global economy to its knees and you know we feel like we're often the masters of the universe and that's not just Jeb across demographics and we clearly aren't on I. think a little bit of humidity goes a long way. I love the energy of younger people coming in because their ideas are just so radically different from the way people in my business have have seen their profession What is your advice for employers looking to harness the intellectual power of Gen Z.? Yeah. No, it's a really good question. There basics of management that have been the same for every demographic every every niche within that demographic. It's look at maximizing the potential of the particular individual to different people react differently to different forms of management. Within this can talk about trends, but the ability to give them that chance to express themselves. The need for trust is always been there now definitely, so I mean even more so because they know what they're capable, but then also must not forget they are still with very few years of experience and being able to be there to give feedback to to tell them what they're doing. Right. Tell them what they're doing. Wrong. Both sides is critical. So just leaving someone out there in the world is not going to necessarily need to great results either but giving that safe-space giving that trust and creating an environment of being game your to maximize your potential and the. Direct, order may have worked. They may have been able to get away with it in the past, but some people might be okay with it but generally speaking that's that's especially for for you a lot of potential that's just not conducive for maximizing the potential where do you see your your business and what you're doing in five years from now what do you want it to look like I think for us it's always been about really helping as many youth as possible be as inclusive as we. And so we're ready serving youth in one hundred, fifty countries would like to go deeper in certain areas through our partnerships or load serve more youth in a more significant way. Provide more opportunities just re the best experience. That's probably what's most important. I think that's where we can have where we can make our contribution towards society. That's what we're good at, and now it's just about going to the next level. Yes. It's a challenging period, but we're going to be okay. WE'RE GONNA get out of this, and then it's about really taking this opportunity and doing the best we can because we are in a privileged situation if we were if we were unlucky which is the case for many other start ups I, friends who had term sheets for massive rounds of financing evaporates we hear the stories and then know they're just unlucky. So we're in this lucky position to be able to operate and to be able to do what we're doing. Let's. Make, the most out of it and I think that's our that's kind of our duty and I think that's yeah.

"In all that on the way The Armstrong and getty show this Netflix's is going to start canceling customer subscriptions. That haven't been used in the past year. You can tell getting cocky. They're like a you. Don't break up with us. We break up with you. Okay Bye Bye. What is that? Why would you cancel subscriptions? I thought that what you think your best case scenario you're not you're not Slowing down the Internet. You're paying a monthly fee ran. Tastic I don't know I can't imagine I feel like there's some sort of making the numbers fudge a little bit here right like if you cancel the subscription and they resigned you get to count that as as a subscription mania and interesting thought her send you people who are subscriber watching show or should. I also one of the the big analytics of a lot of these Internet sites Internet sites okay boomer Ali just okay. Boomer himself is daily active users. So I don't know if there's a metric out there that punishes people for for if there's an existing account but it's not being used if that makes your percentage I don't know the a lot of the analytics. These companies surged strange to me in a lot of them are fudged too. Yeah I did not your Internet. Ads are not working. They're not getting nearly the clicks they're telling you for instance radio that's where it's at and that is true Oh boy I'm going to get to this story. Great Story in The Wall Street Journal over the weekend. The end of America's era of military primacy written by military guy. Oh absolutely WHO's at the medicine here? I it's probably fairly obvious. As China's advanced arsenal grows the Pentagon must focus on emerging technologies not traditional weapons platforms. It was an an OP. Ed piece argument being made by You know a military expert In two thousand seventeen we had just left a briefing where we'd asked to arrange everyone in conversation about China's growing arsenal of their precision strike missiles there long range sensors the counter space capabilities. All this other stuff. Every senator was invited to the briefing about a dozen showed up because people born interested. I guess and they got a depressing dose of reality Pentagon officials in the Obama Administration. One named David Nick. I think I remember that person. spoke publicly last year saying when we do war games when we fight China or Russia the US military gets. It's ASS handed to it. We lose a LOT OF PEOPLE. We lose a lot of equipment. We usually fail to achieve our objective by preventing aggression Through projecting power. Wow you have the great. Crackdown giant protests going on Hong Kong. Right now making the salt more real. Yeah making we wouldn't lose award. It's not like we're getting. You know. We have to surrender and our part of China. Whatever but we would learn to speak Mandarin but we would not We would not prevent it a being so clearly dominant or Be Able to avoid losing a lot of men and material right and you know probably have to come to some sort of an agreement. Okay you get that island if this ends you know that sort of thing right yeah. Well that's clear. Yeah which is not the way you know. Most of us have in our mind about America. Well that's that's because as long as I've been alive and most people listening Ben Alive Right now we've been able to just avoid a war just out of we would just we'd just destroy you. We would lose nothing and you would be obliterated. Yao stay away. Yeah with some notable exceptions the whole limited warfare proportional thing anyway Maybe I'll get into that more coming up later. I'll tell you what I realized. This is unconstitutional. But I would love to see some sort of moratorium on congressman. Lobbying for unnecessary outdated weapons systems. Let's have you know. The generals are the joint chiefs and independent commission. Figure out what we really need to be spending on and just do that. So what does a human value human life worth? This has come up a lot in the last couple of weeks. People usually throwing it around like a like a weapon but some rhetorical win. Somebody talks about opening the economy. How many points on the Dow is worth one human life secretary of the Treasury And I think I think remember Mnuchin saying that's not a fair question Well there actually is a value. The value of statistical life that the government insurance companies never puts on a human life they use the ESL at most federal agencies developed over several decades. And it's about ten million dollars value of human life. Had No idea is worth that if a new regulations boost to myself esteem if a new regulation is estimated to avoid one death a year it will cost about ten million dollars and still make economic sense. Now I read this article in a minute. More interesting is that went along. The dilemma is how do you value reducing? The risk said this economist. At the think-tank is involved in this sort of thing Advisers studied the topic. The economists answer is to ask people what they think. A human life is worth and then observe the behavior on whether or not it lives up to because most people say Human life is the invite. You know you can't put a number go. We do put a number on it with our with our actions in the way we live. Economists use public opinion surveys on mortality. Risk they look at how much more dangerous jobs pay. They study. What. People are willing to spend for safety devices such as bike. The information is then all put together to try to come up with a number they. They calculate how many people are willing to obey for instance various speed limits. I mean we are kind of making a decision at that point. What we think you know life is worth and it'd probably be safer to drive the speed but I'm gonNA drive this speed right. I was running late this morning. I might speed limit was the limit of the engine in my car. I kid of course my friends in the law enforcement community. I would never do that. I think it's interesting. I got to forty and one MAX's out at one zero five and the other one will just keep going until the engine can't go anymore. Oh yeah yeah and I don't know why that is I mean it's got the one has a limiter on it though. The the engine clearly has more but the car won't allow itself to go any faster by the way forward. Is there any way to do something about that? A different chip or I will pass along. The e mails we will inevitably get. I was driving in Germany. I took my car to Germany over the weekend on the auto exact embarrassed but I did. They changed the laws or something no. They're both they're both the same year really interesting. I wonder is it the same model? No I wonder if one is. I mean for instance. My car that I commute in is kind of a bloated old man car It's like It's a rolling living room and it is not built it. I the handled. Well I call it a the whale because it handles like a whale and you would not want to be going very fast and cards just because you couldn't control it but in the right car place hundred but anyway so the government insurance companies have back up one hundred miles per hour when they When they calculate these things society apparently has come up with around ten million dollars the value of a life from the way we react on what we do safety wise. How much how much job has got to pay if it's this dangerous before we'll do it. Right they factor. All this in. It's interesting is that so interesting. Yeah we've we've made this determination without even realizing that we've made this determination ten million dollars. See I'd throw off all my principles for five. I mean I'd sell out to anybody for five million dollars so ten. Maybe I've been pricing myself too low. I figured no takers too high. But I don't know maybe I just need to find the right buyer like real estate. You're still alive in all these scenarios right now. I'm just saying well with five to ten million dollars okay. Okay so I would have to die to get the ten million. Oh all boys. So we're talking about my wife. Have that money so I suppose they have a numbers on there for what a leg is worth or an arm or that sort of stuff. Two Hundred Bucks. Right now are your what. Are you going to do it? But I I'll give you one hundred and seventy five for two of them because I think I deserve some quantity discount prices of your business. You can't have my arm. I don't care what you're offering. I like it use it every day. Armstrong and getty..

Drive this speed, right. I was running late this morning. I might speed. Limit was the limit of the engine in my car. I kid, of course, my friends in the law enforcement community I would never do that. I think it's interesting I got to forty and one MAX's out at one zero five, and the other one will just keep going until the engine can't go anymore, oh. Yeah, yeah, and I don't know why. That is. I mean it's got. The one has a limiter on it. Though the the engine clearly has more, but the car won't allow itself to go any faster by the way forward. Is there any way to do something about that?

Society apparently has come up with around ten million dollars the value of a life from the way we react on what we do, safety wise how much how much job has got to pay. If it's this dangerous before we'll do it right, they factor all this in. It's interesting. Is That so interesting? Yeah, we've. We've made this determination without even realizing that we've made this determination. Ten million dollars see I'd throw off all my principles for five I mean. I'd sell out to anybody for five million dollars so ten. Maybe I've been pricing myself too low. I figured no takers too high, but I don't know maybe I, just need to find the right buyer. It's like real estate. You're still alive in all these scenarios. Right now. I'm just saying well. With five to ten million dollars, okay, okay, so I would have to die to get the ten million. Oh!

"So just reading about the Epstein. Documentary series that debuts on Netflix's early tomorrow. I think it's supposed to be huge. Supposed to get a lot of attention I. Don't know if a will or not, but of the headlines coming out of it is a guy who claims to have seen Bill Clinton on the On the Orgy Island where he claims, he never went that would mean that he did anything awful, but I mean he lied was lying lying right, so I don't think you nail that. down. One one seven year old dude, saying he saw Clinton, there's not. Enough probably. He'd He'd midst. A flying on Jeffrey seems plane although he has lied about the number of times or misremembered, so it would seem says he was never at the island, though the Orgy Island as people call it, but to some old guys.

All that I'm no fashion designer I'm not sure. I love those spacesuits, okay. Call it off. Weird looks just to pay this off briefly crocs, the only footwear brand among the top thirty. Researched in the Wall Street. Journal tab their sales go up a fourteen percent increase. Wow, equal like crocs to embarrassed to wear them in public and now that they're home. They're buying more crocs. That's really interesting I think that's excellent. Analysis has exactly right. This excellent analysis to from Reuters. Actually they came up with the numbers. Crow virus deaths are three times higher democratic areas, then in Republicans areas at voted for Hillary. Three times as many deaths from corona as areas of voted for trump. That's part of why you have the. Split in views about wearing masks, shutting down or opening up the economy etcetera etcetera. which is not really surprising? What's well? It's not really surprising. It's disappointing to me that the more people can't understand that. City life. Urban life is different than life for other people. One set of rules is dumb. And axios traffic tracking poll conducted last week found that seventy eight percent of DEM's. Feel there's a martyr moderate to large risk in attending in person. Gatherings compared with fifty one percent of Republicans. That's a twenty seven percent gap that is doubled since mid April. So in the last couple of weeks, the gap doubled of whether or not you're afraid to be in a large gathering between Democrats and Republicans is that changing the landscape of the disease or people hardening their positions around their political leanings I don't know which. when given the choice between being more fearful of the economic unemployment consequences or the health detrick consequences were split exactly fifty fifty in that poll. As I've been saying I'm way more afraid of the economic part than I am. The disease part well. I'm certain. I we you are going to be hit by. The economic already happened already happened. So in the disease thing I'm hoping to avoid it and or get a mild case. You know hope is not a plan as Positive Sean. Would point out. There's a legitimate chance you're going to pull that off. Not even chance. That's the most likely scenario. Yeah I think so them. The most likely scenario for economics is I'm going to have less money a lot less money than I thought I was going to have. That's already happened so. and to me, it's a pretty easy between the two which to be more worried about, but we're evenly split fifty fifty exactly as a country. I've actually like to. Those of you were more worried about the disease I. Don't know maybe just have a different financial situation different job to hear the explanation, or or maybe it's we're looking at it in two rational away. Worry is in gut feeling. because. I could see people making the case. I'm more worried about dying or my mom and Dad dying than I am about keeping my old car for another year and therefore I am a good person, and you only care about money and I carry about human being well. That does come into it at some point. Exactly, what does the human life worth I can tell you that exactly according to the government coming up excellent act you because I'm thinking of buying a couple of people. What how I'm wow, well. No, but you can. You took it cynical again. People are when I knew people are more worried about emotionally about being sick cantor, dying than a somewhat in a lot of cases a minor to medium. Setback for a and almost certainly temporary, unless you're a small business owner in your business goes away then it's a hell of a setback. Oh, which reminds me that It's so strange to me. Well? It's not strange because people are crazy, but. It's it's amazing that Progressive America. because. They hate trump and trump said we got to reopen. The economy is so opposed to reopening the economy when it is clear that the economic crisis is just murdering a lot of traditional democratic constituencies. How about all the people that work at the restaurants right? Yeah, yeah, just you know working class people blue collar people minimum wage people. PAYCHECK to paycheck, people tend to be more Democrat in in a lot of the country certainly along the coast, and and they are just getting killed economically speaking on the other hand you have this from.

It sounded like he had more rambling to do there. Let's not edit out too much of the rambling goodness difference.

It is the classic Gaffe in the definition. They use in DC where somebody actually says the truth out loud.

It's precisely the kind of thing that a lot of Democrats are worried about Biden doing again and again on the campaign trail, regardless of the context of identity politics and blacks in the Democratic Party just his sort of in almost insecurity to have to take everything to eleven, and just a bit further than the facts or or rationality, sometimes allow makes a lot of people very very nervous about bite, and then the specifics of it is just.

That's not a bad point either I still say there's roughly a one third chance, Biden, not the nominee Daviau, and who would it be and how would that happen? Nobody knows. The brokered convention.

No, we're not a militant anti massacres like me. All I am I'm happy when I see other people in masks. Not. Breathing on me doesn't bother me but it has definitely become a political symbol of the the whole trump didn't wear mask over the weekend Biden did wear a mask and that's the clear divide in how seriously they take this or whatever? but I want to get off on that topic I am confused when I see people in their car with their mascot at seem like a step to confuse. I feel like that's going too far. Who are you protecting I? but we missed a controversy because we are off on Friday. Yes, and Joe Biden the vice president. If you follow Cable News I realize, you've heard this already so hopefully we bring some interesting entertaining angle, too for it was, there will be mockery. It was heavily covered by your cable news channels mostly. Just your your. Non Trumpeting channel CNN almost covered it. Not at all they've. They almost left it completely out of the cupboard. Short of there I think they got beat up enough that they finally decided. They need to do address it a little bit but anyway. Joe Biden was on a a radio show that I'm unaware, but apparently has a lot of political heft in the black world. Yes, it does indeed. It's a well known show. In Club, or the morning, crew, or the flakes or something, the breakfast club based out of new. York good name, Hillary made some headlines when she ran on their during her campaign. It's become kind of a an obligatory obligatory stop for a lot of Democratic candidates and Joe Biden was there. Listen. You gotta come see when you come to New York. VP BY A. Long Way until November. We got more questions. You got more questions. Turn if you have a problem figuring out where you're for mayor, trump and you ain't black. It don't have nothing to do with trump. It has to do with the fact I. Want something for my community. I would love to see. My record man I extended the voting racks, twenty five years I have a record that is second to none then up. ACP's endorse me every time I've run the world. Come on, take a look at the REC. Wow, the if you can't decide between me and trump, you ain't black is getting a lot of attention, but his angry blast there at the end about how dare you I? It's not good politics. I know this makes me bad talk. Show host, but I'm not sure if I heard that that would even stood out to me that whole. You Ain't black Oh my God. It would to me. I don't think you would have. But so look before we get to that. I just want to throw this in That, N., double ACP thing, they've put out a statement saying we have not endorsed Joe Biden. Yeah never endorsed you by wolves. I think that's worth point, but anyway back to the black well, wait a second getting back to that CNN. When they finally did cover the the story edited that part out. Of the Biden quote! The N. double ACP thing so even when they admitted alright old senile, joe is said something completely unacceptable. They edited out the N. Double ACP. Thing, which is just I mean they're liars, professional liars both why I don't think it's a big deal. Then you can blast me. Way I'll make it all about you What would the people tried to turn it into a or did turn it into? I shouldn't use prejudicial terms. People turned it into or took it as he's saying you know as a race, you're there. Certainly you have to vote, yes. The Democratic Party is felt that way for decades and has expressed that message and every one hundred different ways, and both parties both parties knowing how black people are GonNa vote because nine out of ten black people vote Democrat for president every single time. They put that into their polling. So it's just it has been true. It is true. It's saying it out loud I. Guess You're not supposed to, but it's just. It's just what it is I think. Kanye West and you come out and you're a Republican. You get killed. Ride the black community right. Yeah, well. I think you're being cynical, though for a couple of wine, apparently being cynical about the black vote does vary somewhat. It's a fairly narrow band with the elections are often fairly close so it's. It's worth getting more of the Black Vote Oh. Yeah, getting eleven, percent is better than getting nine percent because it's a lot of people. Secondly I think one of the great failings of American politics. In last sixty seventy years has been consigning black America. Whatever that means because you know I hate a group. Any Group of people together has been consigning black America to what a lot of people are calling the government plantation of dependence and defeat and blame in the rest of it, and the Democratic Party has has subtly and cleverly pitched that plantation as a good thing, and I think it's incredibly important to individual human being's lives. Lives that they understand that those policies from from LBJ on have been disastrous for Black America I. Think this conversation is incredibly important. and Joe Biden went ahead, and he said it out loud y'all only get to vote one way to shut up and vote by what you're supposed to. Somewhat of the the premise of Charlemagne's line of questioning our Democrat have Democrats been taking the black vote for granted for too long absolutely. Yeah, so they're going to continue your a cynical man. You've given up on humanity, not me. It's absolutely worked. We'll get the black vote. No matter what we don't have to worry about.

Lincoln is the only president to execute a slave traitor the famous case of nathaniel gordon february eighteen sixty two. He's the only president ever to punish someone to the fullest extent of the law for enforcing that eighteen twenty law so all of which to say when he was battling against douglas in eighteen fifty eight he thought he was not only on the surest ground morally but with regards to slavery being wrong if slavery is not wrong. Nothing is wrong. Lincoln once said he thought he was on the surest ground constitutionally both by the letter of the constitution as well as by the actions of the very men who drafted constitution many of whom actually served in the original or the first congresses and obviously president washington and a few others thereafter said i'm it's still trying to understand exactly what provisions of the constitution lincoln thought would be violated.

He's thinking about the arguments that are made on the other side. Any is always trying to find a new means to to marshall the founders on his side. I understand now that you both explained it so well. Because lincoln felt the dread scott was wrongly. I decided in violation of the original understanding the framers he thought the decision should be overturned that the for that reason the misery compromise should be resurrected and that would make douglas's <hes> position out of bounce of lucas was was lincoln unequivocally correct in his constitutional claims his originalist claims about the original understanding of the framers or douglas arguable points douglas had our i guess the the best way to put his that douglas could make a plausible case as a result of de facto practice that the founders <hes> <hes> cherish cherished federalism so much that they did not intend for the federal government to have too much authority at the state level and i say plausible..
