"Kushner and a curious day in markets today, Doug, you mentioned a lot there are the bounce off the 200 day moving average is one thing bostick's comments about a possible pause this summer. And CNBC's reporting of Dan Loeb taking a purchase of shares in AMD also got a little bit of attention. And then also just that yesterday, stocks hit a 6 week low. It was a surprising day. Yeah, I don't think you can underestimate the degree to which the American economy is facing inflationary pressure. More worrisome than perhaps the data on first time jobless claims, unit labor cost in the fourth quarter, Brian, rising at an annual rate of 3.2%. That was nearly three times the preliminary estimate. We have really yet to see any softening in the labor market despite all the aggressive tightening that we've had from the fed and today treasury secretary Yellen was saying, the fed simply will have to reduce the heat of the jobs market. Yeah, it's really tough to say though whether or not we'll get a follow on. We had one month data. It seems like we'll get a follow on that inflation isn't going down anytime soon. But you know, you'd want to have more than one month. So I think that's why some people are thinking, well, if the economy is this strong, as it apparently is, there's some question about that. But until you get a second month, they're not throwing in the towel. In fact, a rally today really gets your attention is, what is the market trying to tell us? I wanted to mention as well, the Broadcom story it adds to invidious comments earlier and that also makes it interesting for a sector that had been troubled. We had the socks up about 1% today. Yeah, and also after the bell we heard from HP enterprise, a strong forecast for the current quarter. So if you're talking not only about semiconductors, but information technology more broadly, some positivity. Yeah. All right, it's time now for global news. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says he was very direct in his short meeting with Russian foreign minister

"Sticking with the travel trade, let's talk Disney activist investor Dan Loeb, doing an about face over the weekend, the hedge fund manager no longer calling for the entertainment giant to spin off its ESPN business. Let's get to CNBC's Julia borscht for more on the story. Julia. Well, Melissa, this is a win for Disney CEO bob chapek. He seems to be getting Dan Loeb on board for his vision for Disney. Jpeg saying that he believes that ESPN is well placed within Disney. And he has a plan to quote restore ESPN to his growth trajectory. Now this is a rejection of Loeb's call for the company to spin off ESPN. Part of a series of requests he made after he disclosed a $1 billion stake in the company in August. Now, Dan Loeb responding, he tweeted a link to jpeg's comments to the Financial Times. He wrote, quote, we have a better understanding of ESPN's potential as a stand-alone business and another vertical for Disney to reach a global audience to generate ad and subscriber revenues. We look forward to seeing mister petaro, that's ESPN's president, execute on the growth. Now, as for Loeb's proposal, that Disney accelerate the timetable for buying the remaining stake in Hulu from Comcast, CNBC's parent company, jpeg telling variety that it's possible and that they are considering folding Hulu more into Disney+. Of course, this all comes as the company announced investments to launch more movie themed attractions at its parks and also to extend Pixar beyond just new movies, Pixar is going to have its first long form series for Disney+. And Melissa, chap, this is at D 23, the big fan event. He seemed bullish and confident. All right, Julia, thank you. Julia borsen. Guy down, what do you think of the plan, mister chapek is laid out? I'd hold on to ESPN. I mean, at least now, ESPN is worse. You remember a few years ago. I mean, ESPN was an anchor. People say it's still an anchor. I know I had a disagree with Tom Rogers on this one. I think ESPN could actually be a driver going forward just in terms of where the world is going with gaming and gambling and all those different things. So I'm glad they're able to sort of keep that underneath the umbrella and at 21 times ish next year's numbers. I think Disney is probably historically a cheap level. So I like the name here. Tim is a shareholder. How do you think about the increasing cost for sports rights, particularly when you have so many players now bidding for these same events and same sort of series? Well, I think that this is an environment where we really don't know what the leagues are going to be able to charge and what they're going to be able to push through. There are an unbelievably I would just say the biggest competitors immediate in the world are going to be going after this and we see this was Amazon. We see this with Apple coming into the same turf that used to be ESPN's and Disney's alone. So that does concern me. But I agree with guy and I agree with the ability to actually have Disney use ESPN as a way to sell these packages that are going to include Hulu and have a package that's going to be very tough not to have whether you've cut the cord or not. Yeah, actually that's exactly the point I was going to say here is they're able to create these bundled services where a lot of their subscribers to your Disney+ and Hulu are also getting that because they want your ESPN. And so they're going to start to get hooked on some of those platforms. So I think in the streaming worms, having your ESPN is actually going to be really helpful for Disney. And I do really like their valuations. I think they're continuing to show their strength here, whether it's a streaming, it's with their parks, and moving forward here. I actually really like Disney and I think it's a good thing to have. Karen, what do you think of the valuation? I think it's sort of okay. I know a guy talks about it doesn't seem like super rich valuation, but if we back out the linear, which should linear TV ABC, we should have, you know, that's going to be a much lower number, meaning the rest of it is much higher. And for the streaming part, obviously, valuations on those across the board certainly not only Disney have come in a lot. So I think the valuation is kind of high. Remember they have a lot of debt. It's completely manageable, but from the Fox acquisition. So I'm kind of lukewarm on it. I don't own it. I was going to do would you rather God, but I don't want to box you in. This is your last night on the show before you take off for a long, well deserved vacation. So I will simply ask you this question and that would be Disney or fill in the blank. Well, I mean, if you were playing the would you rather game, which, by the way, we started here on CNBC's fast money 5 o'clock each night. If we make it to January, that would be 16 years. And I said that for the last 16 years, but you would have said Netflix, Disney or Netflix, and at these levels, although historically my answer would be Netflix, playing the game correctly, Disney mounts. Okay. Speaking of the mouse house, do not miss David Faber's

"Imagine will continue. And thank you for introducing this topic. Thank you so very much. Appreciate it. And still to come a discussion on an activist investor and gaming in the metaverse, let us write back to the story of today, cracking the code on gun violence. Squawk pod will be right back. It used to be hard to find the exact auto parts you needed, and that meant spending a lot of time at swap meets. It's a different game now when you can order exactly what you need from eBay motors. They have a 122 million parts, so you can always find the right fitment. Spend less time searching, and more time building with the eBay motors app or visit eBay motors dot com. Let's ride. This is squawk pod from CNBC today with the whole team. Joe kernan, Becky quick, and Andrew Ross Sorkin. The billionaire activist investor Dan Loeb backing off from pushing Disney to spin off ESPN saying he has, quote, a better understanding of the product's potential for growth and a tweet, third point CEO says he looks forward to seeing how ESPN executes on its growth and innovation plans a little bit first disclosed is $1 billion stake in Disney back in August. Immediately announced plans to push the media giant to make a string of changes and ESPN being one of them spinning that off. And he's apparently decided he is satisfied with the plan. Of course, part of that plan was to try to get gaming revenue. And I think part of his viewpoint was that they couldn't capture that gaming revenue if they were part of Disney, given that Disney is a family oriented company. I think there may be a view that maybe gaming is in the offing. We'll see. Certainly, it's certainly been picked up by a lot of places that were opposed to it in the past. You've seen the NFL, all of these places embrace it, like they never have before. And I just wonder if Disney thinks that they can kind of push the envelope. If they're going to be the head of the metaverse, which now wants so I'm just trying to figure out all the synergy here. It would be possible for me to play a game against the virtual alcaraz from yesterday. And that money on me beating him in a virtual game. Can I take the other side of that? Is that what I've told you? I have learned how to play tennis without moving my feet, which is not a lot of people can do that. It's a whole new technique. Nintendo. You have to move your feet. Huh? We have to move your feet a little too. If you reach and hit your grip, I'll talk about it. Not in the metaverse. I actually play doubles. But doubles is better. I have a different question. Disney is Disney too late. I like pickleball. For gaming, they're gaming. Meaning if you think about DraftKings, if you think about all of the money that's already been thrown into this space. They're cheap. So do you acquire one? Is that the way you do this? Do you have to build your own? If you have to get into the if you build it into the sports coverage you already have. Well, that's what that would be a pretty. Is that enough? I don't know. Does that get you, does that get you? A lot of money has been thrown at this point. And part of it's been all this free money. Customer acquisition is ridiculously expensive. It keeps it from being able to make money. We were talking earlier about the 70s in vulkan. I was thinking, you used to have to carry change to put into a remember the payphones and then all of a sudden the future came with a little pager where you'd see a number to call back, but you had to find the world is so different. What really is the metaverse gambling world going to look like in ten years? Do you have an idea? The metaverse gambling world? Everything. When everything converges. Metaverse game is convinced that the metaverse is like gaming now. I don't think when people say they're going to live in the metaverse. They're not living in the metaverse. They're just playing several hours. They're playing metaverse in the same way that they watch TV for several hours a day, or they end up playing games for several hours a day. And or they zoom for several hours later. It's going to be a combination of those things, and you'll be in there. And it'll just be a more immersive version of it. Well, that doesn't sound like. I don't think you feel like that. That doesn't sound transformational. But it is if you don't feel like you're in the Mediterranean. You're just incorporated into the transformational talk about office offices. The office is going to conferences, travel. I think that's where you had me believing it would be big and fat and sitting in a reclining chair and never leaving that chair. People are going to intervene. Yeah. Feed me, you're not going to ever stop. That's not how I see it. I thought that is how you say that. And you told me that I was a boomer for not realizing that's what we were all going to be doing. Not my view. And we're not coming back to work. So the new normal is the same as the old normal. Don't you think? Eventually? You mean about offices or about all this stuff? Yeah. I'm not changing. No, I think it's going to be nobody else can. I need the office thing is a totally shifted business. Really? Forever. Yeah. I think this may not be for TV. But I think actually an oddly special there's going to be a lot of jobs, obviously, that are physical jobs, where you have to physically go there. But I think there's going to be a lot of jobs that are not. Well, it's bad news for the commercial real estate people. Terrible. And for everybody that's a real disagree with me vehemently. I hope they do. They talk some sense in you. Because but think about my idea for the IRS guys to combine everything. The IRS guys go out, they check for guns. They enforce vaccine mandates. They Garner your wages. They do. All in one beautiful totalitarian, I mean, you need to write a column, trying to merge all these things together. Have you thought about it? Are you going to take me to heart for that? No. No, I think that's the craziest about the synergies. I think that's the craziest thing. 87,000 agents check for guns on ammo. While they're there. And bring a bunch of masks. Nobody's arguing against Second Amendment rights. Okay, all right. Nobody's arguing for any of this. And I think that I think I look back at your rest side. I would just say this. I'm not for defunding the police. I don't think you defunding the police. I think you care about Law & Order in this country, and it's ridiculous. Ridiculous to have laws in this country. This is what you said. Full stop. Okay. I'm not going to, like I said, I'm not going to. I'm okay with the IRS, making sure people are following the rules. I'd rather have them. It will be with W two earners. I don't know what to do. You can write off anyway. I'm not worried about that. I hope they, like I told you, I didn't do anything wrong in the first time. And it was a bad 6 months of my life, dealing with those people. But I do understand the no broken windows. You realize that when you say that? Yeah. That's what anybody who gets stopped by a cop who shouldn't have been stopped by a cop, says that. Says that they had a terrible experience. No, no. By the way, 6 months. No, no. Minorities in this country who get stopped by the police on the street who shouldn't be. Have horrific experiences. Horrific experiences, and they will say they should not be stopped. Now, I would tell you that maybe they should be stopped. Maybe they shouldn't be stopped, but the point is that we should police people in this country because we have laws in this country. And if we've decided that we've just given up completely, then give up on everything. But I think it's ridiculous to sit around and say, for taxes, everybody should be able to do whatever they want. But for everybody else, they

"The opening pal just around the corner seconds away. Futures positive, a half of 1% on a S&P. On the NASDAQ 100 up a half of 1% also. And if our market switched at the border, it would look like this 6 consecutive weeks of yields higher today, lower by two or three basis points, three 28, 31. And as you can see right now, dollar weakness, the big story, Euro strength, Euro dollar, back to one O one, one O one 24, positive 8 tenths of 1%. With your movers around the open and down, I'm very pleased to say that joining us now is Abby. Hey Abby. Hey, John. Well, we do, of course, have that S&P 500 higher as you were mentioning. And we're seeing something we haven't seen since early July 4 up days in a row, so you Tom and please have all been talking about this rebound that we're having. It is sustained. A big piece of it Apple up 1.3% over the last two days, up more than 3%. This on positive pre order data for that iPhone 14. Not only that, but it's really showing a shift toward the higher price pro, plus they may not have raised prices, but they're holding pricing, high pricing, even given inflation. Occidental Petroleum up with oil higher sharply higher up about 1.3%, but of course also on the news or the no news that Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has a 20.2% stake and also has the ability to take that as high as 50% Bristol-Myers Squibb up 7.4%, their oral psoriasis drug was approved by the FDA. So a binary event producing a binary jump and then finally, Disney well higher than its pre market highs up 1.3% activist investor Dan Loeb as you know yesterday on Twitter saying that he's giving up the push to remove ESPN from Disney it's of course one of their crown jewels, a big piece of a number, so Disney today, up 1.3%, John. Abby, thank you three days of gains on the S&P becomes for the S&P 500 of 6 tenths of 1%. The NASDAQ up by around about 6 tenths of 1% as well. Joining us now sing the Shah, chief strategist at principal, global investors, simmer, you haven't been constructive on this equity market. It's bounced back. What do you make of this move? Is it one you can get behind this time around? It's not, John. We are still quite negative about the other. We think this is a, you know, you're going to get these kind of moments where there is some positivity in the market, you're going to get these hopes that actually the Federal Reserve, the ECB, the Bank of England, kind of each Central Bank that they may not have to go so far that inflation will fall faster than we expect. But the truth is, is that look, inflation, yes, it's on the way down, but it's going to move very, very slowly, and we have heard time and time again from central banks around the world, from people that are on the council of each Central Bank that they need to raise rates pretty aggressively and they've got further to go even if there is an economic slowdown. So we're listening to that message and we're saying the market has got the challenges ahead of them. What's the linkage here of bonds to equities if I'm inequities I need to reallocate and need to rebalance or maybe just the courage to buy the marginal share, what can I take away from bonds? So at the moment we have moved to that overweight duration position, you know, we don't see them being particularly a lot of movement in U.S. treasuries for the time, but being we think they're going to be quite range bound because at least in the U.S. certainly the recession risk is still a little bit further out. We're still seeing a pretty strong economy. But I think at this point you can see treasury reveals probably remaining pretty range bound between three 15, three 30, but then as you get into Q two to then start moving down. So this is a decent time I think a different level to increase exposure to U.S. treasuries, especially as we start to prepare for that time where risk assets really start to struggle again. I look at this linkage of bonds and all the economic data and we're hinged on CPI Tuesday is Seema Shah hinged on CPI Tuesday. Is it really that big a deal? So I don't know if I'm hinged on it, but certainly the CPI Tuesday is an incredibly important number. If we see as we are anticipating that core inflation stays pretty high around the 6% level is what we're anticipating, then that to us is a green light for the third to continue raising 75 basis points at the next meeting. And then not necessarily moving it continuous 75 basis points, but at least to suggest that there is further to go. Now, if we are wrong and actually you do see core inflation coming down further, then of course it's a pretty different story and you could see this market rally that we've seen over the last couple of days to be a little bit more sustained. Sima Shah, thank you, sima. We've got to leave it there. Thank you very much. We're just starting to see some movement here, Tom. Queen Elizabeth carthan. Standing to begin the journey from Hollywood house. Down the road, down the raw mile towards St. John's cathedral. Those pictures just coming through from Edinburgh now Tom. This is maybe for our viewers and listeners, the house, the castle, the mansion, whatever you want to call it, that's a little less known, John. And it is a house. It is low slung across the fields, the fields behind it are absolutely beautiful, major change there in the time of Victoria and Edward. But there's an interior Ness to this, John, Windsor is out there. Out there. This is within Edinburgh, and of course, to move up the hill the royal mile to saint Giles is old Edinburgh. Awaits out Lisa that following the coffin moving in a hearse will be the king, the princess royal the Duke of York and the LF Wessex following on foot. Other members of the royal family will follow in cars. This is the next stage, the next phase of a sequence of events through this week onto the ceremony. Next Monday. So they service the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth. The final march to say goodbye to a matriarch not only of a family, not only to a nation, but honestly, to the world having met with more foreign leaders than anybody else. And we are hearing about anecdotes of people in this community who knew her, because she was there and she would say hi. And so the emotion is palpable in the crowds of people who have assembled. It's on this is something we'll continue to follow through this morning onto the service next week. The mile is now hugely touristy. I'll be honest on the first time I visited. I think I've been twice. I was thunderstruck of how touristy it's begun, but the history that is hidden by the tourism of it is substantial. One of the great moments I had with Bloomberg is up the royal mile towards saint Giles and interview that I did for Bloomberg on the porch of Adam Smith's house. That is the level of history that's involved here is the only remaining existing residence of Adam Smith. And it's obscure John. It's not there's so much history involved here that Adam Smith's only House of 17 90 is just an item. We're about 6 or 7 minutes into this session. Tell him there's something else we'll have

Treasury secretary general Yellen said that the Federal Reserve is going to need great skill and some good luck to achieve a so called soft landing for the U.S. economy. She told the CNN program State of the Union that the United States can't have a strong labor market without getting inflation under control, yet and adding that she wants the fed to use its best judgment when tackling high prices. Their independent and they have great expertise proficiency in a valuating what it's going to take to bring inflation down and we're going to leave them to use their own independent best judgment to try to accomplish that. I believe our goals are very well aligned. Meantime, recent hawkish comments on inflation from fed chair J Powell have increased some expectations for a third straight hike of 75 basis points of fed meeting next on the 20th of September. Well, activist investor Dan Loeb has backed away from calling for Walt Disney to spin off ESPN. That story from Bloomberg, Susanna Palmer. Loeb's third point LLC acquired a stake in Disney last month and called for changes, including the spin off of ESPN to reduce the parent company's leverage. After executives at the media giant rejected those calls, Loeb backed down, saying he has a better understanding of the Sports Network's potential for the media giants global growth, and he looks forward to seeing ESPN head James petaro execute on the growth and innovation plans. Susanna Palmer Bloomberg daybreak, Asia. Walt Disney CEO, bob chapek, spoke today with Bloomberg in an interview at Disney's D 23 fan event at Anaheim, California. He said the ESPN sports networks are critical to his overall vision for the company and something that the under 35 audience is telling the company they want. All right, indeed. We go President Biden, meanwhile, poised to sign an executive order to help expand U.S. bio manufacturing and reduce reliance on China. We had the draft order lays out a strategy to create an array of products and materials from new medicines and human tissues to biofuels and food. How the U.S. should develop a trained workforce capable of using naturally occurring processes to create bio based products until the Biden administration plans to deploy resources to support scaling up biomanufacturing infrastructure, though it's unclear whether there's funding to back this executive order. And as we mentioned, a few times this morning, a Reuters story says that President Biden will also hit China with broader curbs on U.S. chip exports and trying to take a closer look at that when we get to our media review in about 15 minutes or so. Let's take a look at the markets here, Asian stock seeing some light at the end of the tunnel today. Looks like the future is for both Australia and in Tokyo or suggesting some gains today, Australian futures, for instance, up 1.2%. And S and E S&P E minis are building on the gains that we saw on Friday, with further gains here of 11 points, that's about three tenths of a percent to 40 96, but the S&P 500 finished up at 40, 67 on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, up 1.2%, the NASDAQ up 2.1%. So sending a positive message, we did mention that three key markets will be closed today for the mid autumn festival. But among those other markets that we'll be trading, keep a close eye on some in Taiwan and also in Singapore to go along with what we're expecting from Australia and also in Tokyo. Yields on inflation protected treasury debt have fallen further, the 5 year expected rate is back down below 2.6%, and that's well below the march high of three and three quarters percent. Even though if you've been listening to our show today, you've heard that fed officials are keeping up with their hawkish tilt. Chris Waller signaled his backing for a 75 basis point hike. James bullard said he's leaning toward a jumbo move as well. At the September 20th meeting. And we also had some hawkish comments from the bundesbank president walking nagel. He said the ECB will have to keep raising interest rates if price pressures continue. The Euro with some gains today on those comments and also on the Ukraine advances the Euro trading at 1.0073 against the greenback dalien, one 42 63.

Disney Is Back in the Hot Seat
"Disney here for a minute. Third point capital is the activist investor involved, gentlemen, by the name of Dan Loeb, then he's basically come out swinging and said, look, you know, Disney got to get it together and the way you can get it together. He's actually given them a bit of a road map is by spinning off ESPN because, well, ESPN is just sort of a different business, right? And by actually having a full purchase of Hulu. So he'd like them to do a little bit more. I'll quote from the letter that he recently sent bob chapek as the CEO of the company, took over for bob Iger. Saying that, quote, ESPN would have greater flexibility to pursue business initiatives that may be more difficult as part of Disney such as sports betting. Good point. He also urged that the company, as I said, integrate streamer Hulu directly into Disney+ and direct to consumer platforms. None of this is targeting woke ism per se, but the fact that Disney is now ripe for an activist investor to come in like this, I think speaks to the point that Disney has gotten off track, right? There's been something called ESG investing out there in the background for the last few years and it's become increasingly relevant increasingly important where Wall Street investors feel like, okay, well we can't invest in this particular company if it's not. Environmentally, socially, properly governed, right? ESG, meaning environmental social governance. And so that's code word for woke. And so if you're not woke enough, well, you're not going to get the big money investing in you, right? That's the thinking, and that's the theory. And so consequently, you've got CEOs saying, okay, we got to show the world how diverse we are. We got to show the world how much we care, and yet when it really comes down to it, I would just argue that what investors should really care about is how much money you're making. I

"That i got for this stand in the case of a movie is simply a result of the response of the community to the idea if everyone else was driven by childhood curiosity was willing to take risks was willing to engage in a discussion on out of the books thinking. Then i won't be special and we would not have this conversation because you could speak with many others on the same subject. Yes and bless you professor for being willing to engage in authentic dialogue I find it fascinating that that this is a thing. We now have to champion today. Because it doesn't happen that use the word discourse right but but but an authentic discourse is a powerful thing and we push and pull each other and we learn we discover new facts and yet authentic dialogue true discourse civil discourse of course is something that is not celebrated at least in my opinion the way it should be today well it hit me really at fundamentally To the core when both my parents passed away over the past few years. Because i realized we live for such a short time. And most of the time. We're trying to pretend that we are something different than we actually are. And you know if we strip all these layers of makeup. What is left is childhood curiosity and we often suppressed that we tell people not to ask questions. Just like socrates was forced to drink poison just because he has questions how can asking questions be a crime. Why would that be crime in the twenty first century just saying that something may be one possibility out of several. Why would that be crying. Why would that need to be ridiculed. So my point is we live for such a short time. Let's be harnessed. Let's be straight-forward. Let's just figure out what really is going on by collecting data and evidence rather than ridiculing each other and trying to if we know the answering advanced without collecting the evidence and if something threatens our ego therefore we never discuss it.

The book and advocating for what we discussed is the younger generation when it occupies the host of academia will change the intellectual atmosphere there. Because you know when during the french revolution you wouldn't expect marie-antoinette to embrace the new principles. Because she benefited from the principal so whoever is having in the current culture of academia would push back and the hope is that the young generation. We're bringing the new principles to fruition. Professor thank you so much for your time. I enjoy it tremendously. You're welcome back anytime and if if you don't offer to i may you simple time. I'd be delighted to speak with you again. Well there is. I think it's safe to say that Dr avi loeb is one of the most fascinating scientists working today. His book is called. Extra terrestrial the first sign of intelligent life beyond earth and i absolutely loved reading it amazon. Picked it as a top pick for twenty twenty one. Now make sure you subscribe to this odd cast because coming up we have some fantastic episodes Dave jill who is the author of the number one bestselling book the honors. Weekly niche j. As in the philosopher. Nietzsche say it's a great great book. It's called the entrepreneur weekly and our conversations coming up soon as well There's a book coming out. That i think is going to capture a lot of people's attention called thursday is the new friday by my buddy jo. Sonic and so he's going to be coming up soon. And one of my favorite conversations of the year is with Joanne molinaro and she is better known as the korean vegan. And she's fun fascinating and Fantastic and those are just a few of the guests. We have coming up.

"Is so powerful. I must i must ask you a personal question. You know i would describe you as a warrior as a punk rocker a as an outlier and even forgive me. If you don't like this one is kinda giving the scientific community a big middle finger because you have the courage to step out and say these things and of course. You're a senior professor senior leader at harvard university. But all that said what does it take. And how does it feel to step out and take so much career risk and be such a heat for so much ridicule when so two points One when i was a drafted to the military age eighteen i was born in israel I subbed in the paratrooper in the first few months than was saying that sometimes the soldier has to put his body on the barbed wire so that the others will step through. you know. that's the way i think of it. I don't you know the the pain that is inflicted on me's not so relevant because the question is so big for the future of humanity. So i'm trying to make the conversation healthier and willing to suffer the pain. The second point is the pandemic helped me in a way because every morning. I jog at five. Am in the company of docs birds. Rabbits and the wild turkeys. And then i feel very comfortable with nature you see. I don't need to you know the one good thing about social distancing is the. I don't need to listen to things that make no sense to see. I just expressed what they think is common sense. And then ignore. I don't have any footprint on social media. And i don't care how many likes i haven't twitter and just like a basketball player. You know i. I keep my eyes on the ball not on the audience and you can easily see those people. That publicized popularized science. Than i will not mention names but many of them are looking all the time at the audience. Not looking at the ball and they're saying things that we bring them more like some twitter. My point is in the long run. That's completely irrelevant. You can get as many likes you on just like the philosophers during the days of galileo. Did they got a lot of flights from the church but is irrelevant because if the earth moves around the sun and they say the wrong thing who cares. How many likes they get in the halls of the religious doctrine. That's completely irrelevant. Realities will ever it and our duty as scientists is to figure it out and not surrender to social pressure any three unfortunate that the scientific community which is supposed to be the most open minded is nothing now doing that discussion. And you know the post okay. Spoke with just before our conversation was saying. You know i have second folks on whether that's the place i want to be. Because in the private sector there are lots of companies that have blue-sky research in open-mindedness. That is even better than academia. And you know that's ridiculous because the holiday of tenure in academia is supposed to allow people to have job security so that they can say what they think is right. that's why it was constructed and yet people that get tenure. Start to worry about their image not taking any risks trying to gain as much awards in onerous and thinks that the completely superficial instead of being engaged in increasing the small island of knowledge that we have in the vast ocean of ignorance you see or the of scientists to push the boundaries and some risks part of the learning experiences being wrong of. What's so bad about it. Einstein was wrong three times during the last decade of his career. When he was the most experience he argued that the blackhawks exist. don't exist. Quantum mechanics doesn't have spooky action at. This is when he was wrong. But that's part of the learning experience and we should all be prepared to put some skin in the game and learn something new. And unless we're willing to do that you know that the discourse in academia will not be healthy not promote discoveries and the result we would be happy just like the people that gave the money to to bernie madoff so powerful. So is what i'm hearing. You say avi is that there's been a card ashi in ization of science in academia over the last handful of years. Yeah i don't know how bad the situation was prior to that. And i'm sure that in other fields especially humanities it this is even more subjective more affected by social pressure. But what i'm trying to say is that this is inappropriate. And that's not healthy. By the way. I i was asked by the harvard. Gazette of what is the one thing. I would like to change about the world and i said i would like my colleagues to behave more like kids because kids have the right attitude. They learn about the world without prejudice. They put skin in the game. That's why they get bruised all the time they when they look at the objective turn it around and adult looking at the object looks at it from one direction and says i pretty much know what the other side looks like based on my experience and therefore the adults often misses something. Unexpected and my point is a scientists. We should maintain our childhood curiosity. That's really a fundamental facet of allowing ourselves to make mistakes and to make discoveries without allowing ourselves to make mistakes. We are less likely to make discoveries because you never know in advance. You know you're going to path. We take the past that were not taken rather than raise dust in the path. The beaten path with everyone else takes just to gain a reputation and to gain han cinema laws that you know that's completely secondary and at some point in my career. I mean when i was younger i was very influenced by what other people say and then i realized that they were wrong on so many occasions that it doesn't make sense for me to follow that and i should just stick to what seems to be right and you know in on this situation that we are discussing i. It happened to create some controversy. But it it's not the intended to create the. It's just that the response of the community. I think was just inappropriate. And so maybe a thank you for that. Maybe helped me. I have this theory that says thinking.

"Dr loeb. It is an absolute pleasure to have you back again. Thanks for having me. I'm so excited. And their many sixty billion questions. I have less than a number of planets in the galaxy. That's muslim and so but before i start i'm curious. Is there anything specific. That's on your mind right now Yes i would like to understand the nature of these unidentified phenomena Near earth. And the i want to do it. Through scientific experiments and i don't want to rely on politicians. We rely on politicians on policy matters. But don't sign smethers Which would rely on evidence It's not up to politicians to tell us what we've seen this guy i i couldn't agree more and with no disrespect to say for example marco. Rubio wh why is he telling me about Ufo's i wanna talk to somebody like yourself about this. Yeah the reason is simple. The data that was collected so far was assembled with the sensors Many of which are classified didn't obviously for national security reasons. The facilities used to detect those pieces of evidence. Arnold disclosed than in the date associated with muscle feet is not visible to us sites. Classified only a small fraction is open to the public and the report that was to congress by intelligence agencies season. The pentagon obviously talks in general terms but doesn't give us or the meats Classified data that appears to be quite convincing to the level that a former cia director's brennan and z. Former president barack obama talked about it very serious matter and you know these are serious people and they had access to the classified information. They talk about it seriously but they cannot really assess the nature of the phenomenon and because they were trained either petitions or administrators. And you know when you go to a shoemaker. Don't expect the shoemaker to make you bake you a cake. I mean it makes no sense for them to make statements that are scientific. I love hanging out of your brain. So if i'm to read some of these reports in the media correctly please educate me The government of the united states has come out and said that there are quote. A hundred and twenty unexplained objects observed by the air force and navy over the past twenty years that cannot be accounted for a my understanding this correctly. Well a little more but the point is they also make this statement that the there are many more events but they were not reported. Because of the stigma i mean. The report explicitly says that that people were afraid off talking body because they are worried about their reputation and The was a tabun discussing unusual phenomenon. By the way. I mean this is really strange to me because i wrote the scientific american esa yesterday with the title. Why is anomalous evidence so unpopular. I mean to me. It's really strange because if you look at the history of science Most of the progress was the result of anomalies experimental. Normally we saw something that we didn't expect. We learn something new about nature what you need to. Of course verifies that the evidence is robust. But if it's robust then nature is sending you you in three understand me here. Is something new that you have to figure out. And that's what happened the century ago with quantum mechanics. Nobody expected it then. It came along through experiments and albert. Einstein resisted the notion that it brings something new. He said a Spooky action at the distance makes no sense. He wrote papers about the disproving at but he was wrong and we know from experiments done later. The quantum mechanics does have spooky action at the distance is called entanglement and the moreover you know a century later. We don't really understand the meaning of quantum mechanics. It's still like a born in our throats in a way because we tend to think in classical terms not in terms of quantum mechanics but who cares. That's a quantum mechanics describes reality and that's what matters and we build instruments at all electronics. The way that we communicate the two of us is a founded on the principles of bundle mechanics that lot of devices along the way between my office and your office that are using quantum mechanics to allow us to converse with each other and it works so quantum mechanics is definitely facet of reality. We know that we use it and so forth but we don't fully understand it and nature is under no obligation to you know Under no contract to make itself Agree with our preconceptions. So every now and then we find some evidence that we've been wrong in the way we think about reality. Galileo founded and then he reported back and then the philosopher said forget about what forget about the fact that the earth moves around the sun. Actually we know that the sun moves around the earth therefore you will be in house arrest so that other people will not hear your message. And what did that accomplish. They didn't look through his telescope. They remained ignorant. The earth continue to move around the sun. It didn't change anything except maintain their ignorance. And that's unfortunate because if you are ignorant about reality you're not adopting tweet properly. When we understand that the earth moves around the sun we can think about going into space and building satellites around the earth. I mean we have a better sense of reality and that is true. Also about neighbors whether we look through the window or not doesn't really make our neighbors go away right so if we a argue we need extraordinary evidence to consider the possibility of extraterrestrial intelligence out there and until then we will not even allow that to be discussed. Then of course you know we will maintain our ignores. We will not look throwing though not find the neighbors but one day. Guess what one day we will hear. Knock on the door. That will be extraordinary evidence at last but we will not be prepared. We will not know what to do. And i say why. Not look through the window. Let's just connect the evidence and let the evidence guide us so if we see something unusual. Let's figure it out of sending tweets and ridiculing and making jokes about it that makes zero sense given that we are in the twenty first century. You know galileo if he was today would have been canceled on social media but that wouldn't make his argument go away. It would just make other people comfortable and one lesson we should learn from. He's threes that reality doesn't care whether we ignore it. There's so much there. I i wanna get into a lot it but it would be too much for me to pass the fact that quantum mechanics is critical for podcasting. So could you just give me a few moments on why we're using quantum mechanics right now on almost every device that you see in front of you and along the way is based on quantum mechanics because for example the way that the electrons move in a wire of the connects your speakers to your computer the way the computer works is a through quantum mechanics many elements within your computer that are based on quantum processes and we can going to them but in some of them involve vip quantum jumps across the gap State crystal or a photoelectric effect or all kinds of quantum effects that were discovered along over the past century. There used in electron devices. Routine leeann nobel. Prizes were awarded for some of them. It said you know we can spend an hour talking about the all these processes in it's clear that nature or reality is quantum mechanical fundamentally and we can approximated as classical stiff objects follow deterministic trajectories or classical physics describes the object the At different places at the same time we can do that. Only for big objects in quantum mechanics admits that big objects and carry a lot of mass. They can be approximated as they followed definite path but once you go to electrons atoms small objects there. The description that is appropriate for them is that they're not localized. There are not having a particular velocity. They have a probability dilution of occupying different states and end the therefore they do not behave classically and reality is different than we see in our daily lives and that some you know we need to have a sense of modesty that you know that there is something more important Our eagle obviously it's it flutters are eager to always be in the comfort zone where we say. We pretty much know everything that we've come on the way from our past experience. That is a comfortable position..

For for humanity. And it's been a lot of kind of most compelling books to read type lists of late. He was with us back on episode two. Oh two if you're a regular listener you remember that episode for sure. If you haven't heard it. I would highly recommend you go back and listen to it on that episode. We dig into his book on this episode. We have a very far reaching conversation.

If you want to dig into bernie madoff go back to episode. Two one seven with the legendary author. Jim campbell professor lobe also kind of gives us an update on how his work and himself taken such ridicule for saying what he said in the scientific community. And if you've been paying attention at all to ufo's dr loeb packs what he thinks the. Us government's latest disclosures on the existence of ufo's really mean we also have a conversation about the fact that most of the universe we don't understand and how scientists are searching to understand this thing called dark matter why galileo would have been canceled on twitter.

"Kids record. Here is phil what you feel with. Craig robinson he would know from the office. Grammy to someone. Granted pretty cool. So lisa loeb coming up in second to mass madness all right. Thank you guys here. Is today's podcast on now. With lisa loeb. Who i'm a massive fan. You know just just so you know. at least i'm a massive fan. I love it love it. We both got our glasses. I'm using a virtual background on these zoom portion of our interviews. Now your lights new distracting. No wonder my kids get so distracted in their zoom classrooms. Especially my son in. You are in your zoom background. Which i you their pictures of you in your own background. That is you right. I know i have this news call. That's opening on this week on broadway demand literally like having some kind of asset. I don't even. I've never tried acid but only light as- appeal on my face. But i i've never used the virtual background but i had this musical theater poster kind of background behind me and my face is indeed on it and i do want to talk about that on one second. But here's how we came together on a weird twist of events is that i have from your music to your reality show to what the kids record the kids music as we did a little kid project to an and i saw how awesome difficult that that can be at times and so i've always been a fan of yours and i i had this show that's on nat geo and disney plus and they just knew i was a fan. I didn't send that box to anybody. And i saw you get one of these boxes and i was like lisa loeb. Got one of these boxes that you posted about it on instagram. I thought it was one of the coolest things ever and so my producer was like. Hey why don't we reach out to her. Because she has a broadway project we can talk. And that's how it came together. They disney knew. I was a fan of you. Sent that to you. You posted it and here we are. It's crazy now. I have to say every day when we finally did get in person in school my kids. There's a huge billboard of your show app as i'm driving my second grader. Now he's going to be a third grader everyday to school. It was like so aspirational the picture of you. With all those like tools and weapons and a lot of stuff. I wasn't good at using honestly while it was it was sort of aspirational because my son is super swords and anything. That's like Something i don't really want him playing with basically is what he's interior to see up on a poster and know that we get to watch his show about somebody who does get to play with all that stuff It was very aspirational. And so then i did. Get a box of really. It was really nice promotional box. That's like one of the nicest ones i've ever seen ahead. Like a yeti water bottle like work gloves like a really nice lunch pail like i wanna go somewhere on like you want to go. Have lunch just because of the. Yeah that's well. I'm super pumped that you hear. Has anyone ever come up to you and said hey look lisa loeb not realizing that you are her and happens. All the time happens all the time. It's hilarious it's hilarious. Actually there was a guy who was helping me. i might toaster-oven broke last december. And this big. It's really important piece of equipment in our kitchen. The toaster oven. And then i realized. I want one of those air fryer toast drive-ins or you can like make your fake chicken wings and french fries. So i kept trying to do research and i finally realized this is the one that i want this. This one company and i started looking and i was like. Oh you know. I'm one of those people who have to over. Think everything and michael do all the research. Finally i'm going to get this. And i went to bed back and beyond. I'm going to get it. They didn't have it. They had on display. Didn't actually have it. But the guy from the company walked and he had his company name on his mask and on his hat. And i was like. Oh my gosh. Do you know where to get this toaster oven so from weeks he was calling all these different stores even from bed bath and beyond he was calling like sir letaba and like williams sonoma. I'm like dude. You can't make speaker phone call at bed bath and beyond calling other stores like no no no. It's cool. it's cool. And he finally. He tracked down the one last remaining toaster oven thing in the whole state of california for me in the right color and i was like so happy i a guy that guy was such a great rep. Like he was so nice he really cared about getting me that toaster-oven and then at the end he texted me and said owned by the way if you ever played concert in a nice lady he was helping but always stop me and say that they say oh your glasses for greatly slow or whatever do you go. That is me 'cause that's an awkward thing because people will do that to me times to like. Hey bobby bones and it's weird to go. im him. it's kind of weird. Do you ever go. That is me or do you go. Yeah i get that. Sometimes when i was cool like in in my twenties and more like hip and like yeah i might have said like. Yeah i get that a lot. But i would say yeah but then i realized as i've gone along you kind of want to treat everybody like grandma you're like yes it is you know. Like let enjoy their moment with them so that they can enjoy their moment more and not be doing. It's like. I mean i've done both. I've done like yeah. I get that a lot or yeah. That's me yes you do. Do you give them the enjoyment of like it is. I am well. I am yes i do look like. Wow i am lisa right now. I have on clear glasses. Because usually if i were classes. Nobody's stopping. Nobody knows what. I look like if i were glasses so i never get it so if but if i'm wearing my normal glasses someone hey does anyone ever tell you like a bobby bones depending on if i think they hate me or not because sometimes if they're just not i just know they are not a fan whatsoever. Comedy or radio that i do. I'm like i'd yeah. I do get that a lot of crazy. He's a real. He's a real loser and it depends how they play back but most of the time. I'll be like hey that's actually me. Thank you know. Most of the time i do. Yeah i know in college actually. I was taking dance class and it was african dance and i was really not good at it and i had a couple of pair of contact lenses for auditions or whatever. But i'm kind of allergic. So i can't wear them really much like maybe two three thirty i- amax movie or something every once in a while but even that i don't do anymore or like audition wear contact lenses or if i'm trying eyeglasses you have to wear contacts. You can see what they would like. But anyway i i i purposely did not wear glasses at my final My final african dance class out on the middle of campus. Didn't want anyone to see him be like other. She has literally didn't even seem they couldn't in college hourglasses to in highschool people just didn't even see me without my glasses. They didn't recognize the people that i knew. Well yeah. I have three music questions for you if if if you'll allow them. My first one is when you when you put together a set list like do you still play all the massive hits i. Do you feel like you are going to play that for the fans regardless even though you've made so much music in between nineteen ninety four wednesday came out or stay with number one two today like do you put them all in and where do you put them in your set less to you open with a big one. Do you close with you know. Stay like what happens.

I was interested in philosophy and used to drive. A truck taught to the hills of the village philosophy. Bit books and i was born in. Israel were The reason obligatory military service at age eighteen and I was recruited to program that allow me to pursue physics and that was closer to philosophy than running in the fields with the gun attached to my back and so i did that and then I was offered the federal sheep at princeton under the condition that i'll switch to astro physics so well that an offer that they couldn't refuse just an in the godfather the signal to And then. I was offered a faculty position at harvard that they couldn't refuse to. And by the time i got tenured i realized that even though it was an arranged marriage. I'm actually married to my true love because there are some fundamental questions in the universe that we can addressing typically and. I'm very glad to have this position that allows me to do that. And i'm basically a heaven changed much since my childhood. If you ask people that know me. I'm still the same kid. And just if i had to frame it. I would say we are born into this world like actors put on a stage and we don't know what the play is about. Nobody tells us so. Then the first thing to do is check the stage and it looks like the stages huge. It's the size of the universe. It's ten to the power twenty six times bigger than our body and the the other thing we noticed. This scientists is The play has been going on for thirteen point. Eight billion years since the big so he just came at the end. How dare we think that the play is about us like most people. Do you know they think all we are at the center. And so the first thing you is a sense of modesty and moreover it drives me at least to ask other out there that we can ask what the is about their heads. They have a better idea. Well it's something that you've you've touched on a lot of your interviews. Is that modesty. Humility in the face of this infinite universe ascribe to that copernican principle of you know. We're not really that special necessarily talked with a little bit about it. Aid going into a lot of time. Scientists their create those echo chambers. They don't want to think outside of the conventional thought or this organiz narrative. You have been open minded enough. Obviously we're going to get into a more later to to entertain the possibility of things outside of our normal understanding but part of that is your your your view of modesty and humility in the face of this infinite universe right so one thing. I noticed while practicing physics and astronomy is that a lot of scientists use science as a sandbox by which they do a mathematical tall city. And the demonstrate. How smart they are. And the s the result you know. They pursue a better image of themselves so that they can get more honourable awards recognition and that to me. Looks like i mean even though it might sound. This is not such a terrible thing because still are doing science. The problem is if you're motivated by that you would try not to take risks so that you will not. Your image will not be damaged by making mistakes. You will not innovate as much. You will not test your predictions by experiments. You retrieved the corner. That experiments can reach You know there is the saying that if you place your evidence far away you can lie because the one will be able to reach it and so by working on subjects that have not experimental tests..

That's obvious but movie you made. I don't think anyone who didn't have a pro-life you could ever attempt to make a movie like it's very powerful and windows movie. Come out officially april. Second on amazon. I tunes google play on demand. Get wonderful. I want everybody to go out there and watch this movie. Even if you're pro-life pro-abortion it might change your mind and show you what you're trying to do here. Maybe you're ignorant of the fact and our friend. Nick loeb here has given us a reason to go out and go to a movie also not to ask you. What about this powerful movie motivated. You drove you the most. I mean there has to be something that really pushed you. As as i thought it was a trip me. Listen a row roe v. Wade is the most famous core case in american history on the acre. And i've been in the film business for twenty five years. I was surprised of hollywood. Had never made a movie about a real about row Really the truth in the history of how can be and how it happened and how was decided especially since everybody in the country has heard of it. And i think would drove me. As the the more i read about the case and the more i read about the people involved..

The EU doesn't trust its citizens data in the hands of the U.S.
"With all the big crises facing america. It's surprising to privacy. So high on president biden's agenda but in his first week in office he already appointed someone to negotiate with the european union on how personal information is moved between europe and the us last summer that you said the way data was being sent to. The us was insecure. In august ireland's data regulators told facebook. Stop transferring its citizens data out of europe. The issue is with the irish high court now. In december facebook argued that court that to stop data transfers would have quote devastating and irreversible consequences for its business and this rule would obviously impact all kinds of commercial data and companies. It's also obviously a big deal for the new administration. Jessica a partner with the law firm loeb and loeb prior to twenty twenty. Let's say we had something called the privacy shield in effect and that helped us transfer data from the eu to the us and then over the summer. July twenty twenty. That was struck down. It was found that because of some of the surveillance operations of the us certain executive orders and laws we have in place that the data of eu individuals when it comes here essentially is it held to the same privacy standards as they are in the eu and the privacy. Shield wasn't adequate enough to protect it so that left a lot of us in the privacy community scrambling toward the second half of the year trying to figure out. How do we keep data flowing across the border right and that was a big deal to american tech companies right. I mean they were saying okay. Well look if we can't share data back and forth. We're not going to be able to operate in some of these countries right right. Exactly and so yeah. We've been looking for two things. So one is standard contractual clauses of companies have kind of defaulted to that but even those shaky ground and are being revised so. I think everyone was hoping that we'd find some solution. Some post privacy shield path forward with the eu. But that was difficult. I think what the previous administration will and so now we actually have someone in this role early. What does that signal to the rest of the world about the position. The us might take on privacy. I mean i think it signals a couple of things. I on privacy. I think it it signals that the biden administration understands the importance and the significance of the issue. And the need to kind of have these kind of crossborder cooperation In place and so. I think having someone christopher hoffa was appointed to this position really signals at. They're going to take the seriously and then take the steps that might be needed on the side of the us to make the comfortable with these data transfers. More broadly what sort of issues around. Privacy and surveillance do we expect. The biden administration tackle. Is there a chance for federal privacy legislation at long last. I've said that. I have moved from just mostly pessimistic to now moderately optimistic and that was really push forward by what happened in georgia so now with one party control all houses i think the path forward seems a little bit more clear and you know to keep in mind that biden and then we also have comma harris. Who formerly was attorney. General in california where she pushed forward a lot of significant privacy legislation. That's still impacts a lot of us today. So you know between the two of them i think this is an administration that has a background and understanding of the importance of privacy. And you know we have to deal with the pandemic. I but i anticipate privacy being a priority for them. Yeah i mean as a you mentioned by president. Kamala harris as a presidential candidate. She said that her first priority with tech companies is to ensure that consumer privacy remains uncompromised. Like is it. Is this an administration. You think that will try to find a better line between a business friendly approach and a consumer friendly approach whereas now it seems to be all business i do i do. I think i think that'd be really sensitive to the consumer issues. And if we think about it. When i look at what's going on in terms of trying to regulate privacy and then more broadly the tech companies it it feels like regulators are trying to chase a ball down a hill. You know it's just like oh. Do we do antitrust. Do we do section to thirty. Can we get some kind of federal privacy. And i think they'll try to take a pragmatic approach that will bridge the gap between the business and the consumer advocates. And from where. I said i think they're really sticking issues with federal privacy. That are left. It's will there be a private right of action meaning well individual consumers be able to sue companies directly. And then we'll they'll be preemption. Meaning that will this federal bill preempt any state laws which is really what business wants because business doesn't want to have to comply with fifty different state privacy laws on top federal privacy. So i think if we can get a path forward on those to all the other points of privacy laws are consumers get writes a lot of companies are already complying with that because of gdp pr see cpa. So we're down to the we're down to the final issues. Hopefully

Report: Samsung Electronics, SK Hynix have conservative DRAM capex targets for 2021
"Was a report today on bloomberg saying that samsung s k hynix. We're going to cut back or keep cap ex on d. rams stable effectively on a year on year basis. It would look like a decline in capital spending on d. around which is in theory good for a western digital as as a micron. Mico what do you like in this space if anything. Yeah so have you see. I'm going to look at it a little bit from an operations perspective. I mean the options markets definitely were very bullish on western digital. I mean obviously we could see that in the increase in the share price. I think it was up more than ten percent today but a lot of these names also were saying some bullish activity going further out expecting basically today's rally persist into the future western digital. I think traded you know some multiple close to three or four times. The average daily call volume went and it's normally trades pretty good volume to begin with so we're looking at seventy to eighty thousand calls straight on western digital bullish flow going out about ninety days or so. You know the other thing i would say is that we have some product cycle. Basically going on here. And i think this is going to be beneficial across the space. I mean You know we're not really looking at this particular area necessarily today the gpu makers and so on we were talking about it yesterday. Things like nvidia and so on I'm also very curious. You know. I'm wondering whether other kind of chip companies like intel might actually get their mojo back. They're probably going to need to do some pretty serious rethinking of their business. And i think dan loeb is looking into that and trying to pressure them to do exactly that maybe getting a focus back on engineering and making the kinds of products that their customers actually want to buy. But i do think that there is potential continued strength in the space going into the new year.
Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math!

There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has

Europes data-privacy law turns 2. Has it actually made our information safer?
"This week marks two years since the general data protection regulation went into effect you know. Gdp are for a while. They're in the before times. It's all anybody talked about. It's a massive set of data privacy regulations created by the European Union and affecting any companies. That operate there. It is also the template for California's new privacy law the CPA company spent millions of dollars on GDP. Our compliance people expected finds so big. They'd put big out of business and none of that exactly came to pass but what has the GDP are meant for consumer privacy and more importantly our awareness of how're data gets used by companies. Jessica Lee is a partner with the law firm. Loeb and Loeb who specializes in privacy and she says so far. It's a mixed legacy we've heard complaints. Gdp are is kind of you know the dog that didn't bite. It was supposed to come with all of these big fines and enforcement. And that's really what got companies scared into compliance and two years later. We'VE HAD SOME FINES. But we certainly haven't had two or four percent of you know annual turnover. No one's going out of business You know even at the very high and defined it's still you know there's nothing in the billion dollar range and I you know. The enforcement has sort of trickled out as opposed to been this mass explosion of enforcement and so I think that's caused some frustration on the enforcement side but that threat of enforcement caused a lot of companies really to comply and I think compliance was the point. And so that's why I would give it you know in the B. B. Plus Range So companies did make changes. Do you think those changes will be lasting? I do I think that after the are you know obviously in the US we have the CPA. There's a law in Brazil. Multiple countries are standing up their own privacy regulations while they're not you know kind of exact matches to the GDP are they do reflect a lot of the fundamental principles and. I don't think it really makes sense to stand up a program like Something that comply with the GDP are and then tear it down because there wasn't enforcement because there could be enforcement and I think that while we haven't seen it at the levels at some were hoping for the threat of enforcement I think will still cause companies to keep their compliance programs in place up to date not perfect. I won't say that everyone's perfect. Maybe that's part of the complaint but I think that will keep it on the radar as a priority. Do you think there's anything that has trickled down to consumers like I feel like the most visible change. Is the annoying cookie disclaimers like if anything the Internet. Got a little more annoying for us. I wonder are there any other benefits that you can point to? I think this as a general matter consumers generally or more cognizant of privacy online and I think we still have a long way to go a lot of my complaint with some of the privacy regulation is that it doesn't contemplate consumer education enough internally. I think that companies do implement the Judy Pr's principles that your data might be held and be processed in a more compliant fashion meaning. You're not collecting more than you need. Or maybe there's additional security controls in place or maybe it's not being shared as widely or without you know contractual protections. Maybe it was before so there are things that are benefiting consumers that they probably can't say do you think that GDP are actually really did change the way that companies think about data and privacy or that this sort of like ongoing awareness campaign will lead to sort of a philosophical shift companies? I do I think so. I probably has a bigger impact for US COMPANIES. And we're going to see this domino effect of privacy regulation that you know if you weren't thinking about it for GDP are you'll think about it for if you're not thinking about it. I see CPA. You'll be thinking about it for the law that ends up in your state or the federal law that we have like you'll they'll be get to a place you can't avoid kind of following these principles although we are now seeing those principles collide with the covid nineteen outbreak and we've talked to futurist and legal scholars who are saying privacy. Might end up being a bit of a casualty of the pandemic so I wonder how those laws are going to interact with what public health officials may see as a need for greater surveillance or more data. Oh definitely I mean. I think we were always headed toward surveillance and so these laws weren't going to stop us from getting surveillance. The goal would be to get us there in a more responsible fashion. Which is I think the benefit of the GDP are is that because it's principles based even if you do do a lot of data collection even if you do do enhanced surveillance I think there are still some fundamental principles that will be in place The US laws are kind of more spotty and more prescriptive and so we don't have that kind of principles based approach to privacy. And I think that's GONNA leave us in a tough spot because I do think that we always have to make a trade off right so online. Sometimes a trade off with data is do I want access to content for free or you know or do I am I am. I willing not to search on the site because I don't want to give them my information. I think the stakes are obviously much higher. Where we're talking about cove nineteen. I think people are going to be willing to accept. More surveillance will be willing to give over more data to get freedom right to be able to go back outside again with some level of comfort. We're going to be pushing in the direction of surveillance and the question is. Will we be doing it in a way where we have responsible rules in place? Are we going to do it in a way where we might be in a little bit of a free for All Jessica? Lee is a partner with the law firm. Loeb and Loeb. Who Specializes in privacy

Jamie Loeb on not letting results define her
"Hey everyone listening the tennis dot Com podcast with American pro. Love Jamie Lobe. She's telling us about the ups and downs of her career on the pro tour. Keep listening you mentioned a team now. We know that here in midland joined by Ed Germain Jenkins. He has worked the past with Naomi Osaka so kind of a semi famous name. What's that experience been like? Yeah you know. I was super excited when I heard that he is going to be kind of charged me during preseason and this year. USDA and You know really grateful to have him and his experience. I really like working working with him. And I you know we agree on Pretty much everything and just seeing his You know point of view on certain things and even asking him questions about you know oh players at the top level what are they doing differently But yeah like you know between owning than he was hitting partner so he's had quite the resume and it's pretty the Cool to be around him. Is there anything. That's kind of stuck out that. He said that he has probably they're used or you know the top players did that. You were like that resonated did with you because you know sometimes coaches can say something and sometimes it doesn't stick but it just depends on how someone says it. I think more so when we're talking about things thinks he's looking at big picture and for me He's you know he's like top hundred fifty like when we're working on things after matches like look if you want to get to this level like doc. This isn't gonNA fly or like you need to get better at this so I think it's good putting things in perspective because it's so easy to focus on the now instead of you know and maybe like three six like one year Threes there six months down the road or a year down the road and I think he always like just brings back so for me until I kind of get Outta my head and stop thinking about now but thinking about okay. What's GonNa be what's going to make me better for the next six months to a year from now it's challenging though because as you've been ranked as high as as the one thirties right? You've been up there she you know but then rankings change and every year is different. He's a bad your last year. How have you managed to cope with expectations? Sion's probably your own because you only fears in. You're still very young but you can kind of get sick of it right. Yeah I feel like a veteran at this point. Irene in is rolling her eyes at me. 'cause I've been playing also since junior is but fulltime. I think it's about five years now. Something like that How injury last year and then confidence one away and it just took a while and then from that wasn't enjoying being on core and then I was just trying to force things and then all of a sudden when I least expected I go and win a tournament when I really didn't think I was going to or really didn't want to be there and then things just change? It just takes one match one tournament for everything to change but at the same time you know these common things not enjoying playing and being out there that kind of creeps in when you're not doing well and you kind of have to take the time to realize like look. Do I need a break or can I push through. And that's kind of the battle. I had last last years well last year you were also I mean. We also have to mention the fact that you made finals here. Two years ago two years ago. Yes so last year. You were defending finals points and unfortunately lost to Mattie second round had a tough drugs we played each other the year before so I mean just that many points and you know losing early in that match in that tournament when you're defending finals. I mean that can also change your year lot and that was was that probably the the biggest amount of points accrue that you were defending ever I believe so. Yeah those definitely I think the most I've had to defend so. Yeah that was. It's tough and then two weeks later. I sprained my ankle. So yeah and that was. That was a struggle learned a lot throughout that time. Time but Ended up playing a couple tournaments when I definitely should not have and then ended up having to take two months off so everything was kind of pushed back. In that time frame I did have more points coming off and then by the time I came back I just I was not confident at all. So there's a slight turning point then in October when you one in Dallas Tonight your your eighth idea which is what were you thinking before. I mean if we didn't want to be there you don't WanNa play and then you end up winning. It doesn't really. I don't quite understand. Yeah it's crazy how things happen I go up a set and four one and One of the US coaches Jordan. Belga was there with me After I got four one turn to him and I'm like I don't WanNa be here anymore and I think his face was like And then of course so I lost next two games but then I ended up. I think winning four and three and from that match or Mike Okay and then I honestly started playing better With each match I think just mentally. I wasn't in a good place going into it and part of me was thinking I might call it a year after that tournament. I actually spoke to Irena a little bit Prior prior to that. I'm like what shed Douche stop now but maybe I can do well. Maybe I can get points. It's just that constant vicious cycle of points money any but then you kinda lose yourself and kind of like self love and self care. Yeah funny should mention that I remember last year I made up behind the racket. Post host and I remember getting a message from you. And it was one of those moments where vicious like girl I've been there we I've been through it. You know let's have a phone phone call and not taking credit for your win but you know we did speak before that credit for that. I don't know it was all you but You Know I. I don't feel like I asked this question enough but I I'm curious. What is it that drives you to keep going? I think for me. I'm stubborn than sons. Were like I I just. I don't know I want to or maybe not stubborn aware but like I just want to start like if I start something like I i WanNa finish it and I WANNA say like look I gave it my all and I don't think I was like ready to stop. Maybe I should have taken a actual break or a as long enough break. I don't really think I took any break but I think I'm just so motivated to do well and prove to myself that like look I can and do this and I think I just love the competition and I'm just really determined with everything I do but I just know myself and I know I wouldn't be satisfied if if I were to stop because at the end of the day like I do love competing and giving myself a chance and I don't WanNa look back and say I didn't do that or fulfill that no stone left unturned right. Yeah right no regrets no regrets. Do you ever feel like maybe the motivation might be. Or how do you stay motivated to be like okay. Maybe the next tournaments my right one the next thing is going to turn around or do you ever just think like. Why am I doing this combination of all of that? Sometimes I'm like. I don't know what's going to happen this week week. Someone like all right. I got this but then I lose first round and some weeks like Dallas. I'm like I don't want to be here and win the tournament. So honestly it's a coin flip live like your mind is You know it's crazy what your mind can do but sometimes you know thinking that way it kind of takes pressure off of you and you just go in with no expectations. I think I've learned to try not to define myself as a person With my results. It's really hard to and you know I'm a perfectionist. I WanNa do well and everything and I wanNA win and succeed. But I've done a better job of just separating myself and then the tennis player and I think that's a big thing by yeah week after week. I feel like the mentality just changes depending where you are to you like. There's some places you know may not want to go to so then you're like Like am I really motivate and other places I guess Midland. I'm highly motivated here because I really enjoy by the people in the crowd so mike always up for. But even when you're down you still have to find a way to kind of persevered through that and do you feel ever pressure. Sure from like maybe your support system family or your sister or USDA to keep going even though maybe sometimes you want to break. I sure I think I tend to care too much with other people. Say and think. And that's kind of a downfall going to please everybody and then I end up not pleasing myself and doing something for myself ourself. So I've battled with myself with that I don't think it's necessarily on anyone. It's just how I feel and you know maybe sometimes my family you know they're always watching me or following and sometimes it's a lot and you know it is pressure but I've grown up doing that and living through that hat so I kind of expected by now but I just need to do a better job of just being like it doesn't matter what anyone else things just matters how I feel if I'm happy if I feel like I'm doing the right thing. Then that's all that matters happy. I love hearing that. I don't hear that enough from tennis players. I mean it's it's so result base driven. You know you get so so many e- even last night you know after you win your match or whatever the first question is you know how you feel second question did you play. How'd you play? And then the third question is typically. Well you play this person next like you know it's never like you go ahead and enjoy this win. Take this moment and I remember last night. You know you asked me you were like hey. Do you want to know who you play next like. Nah I just WanNa and I just want to enjoy this one a little bit maybe just process acid and yeah I can totally relate to what you're saying about you know your whole life. You're just you're just a tennis player. Yeah everyone when you go to family functions. How's through tennis? Yes this yeah lately. That's just annoyed me more because I I have even snapped. Sorry mom but like I've snap at her. Mike Mom Likes. Stop asking me. How practices like just ask me how I am? She's like I I'm like yeah but then you always follow it up with you know house practice houses like does it really matter her and sometimes I'm like all if I wanNA talk to you about it. I'll talk to you about it but you know. I think all of us like we're more than tennis player and it's tough because family family. Family Friends You know people watching us on TV. They think of us as tennis player. That's why you know behind the racket We both have done it. Noah's it's a really good friend of mine. I think it's a great platform to just showcase like you know the struggles that we do go through and just show lobe of our personality As well since a lot of people don't get to see that

Senate adopts resolution declaring "the press is not the enemy of the people"
"We. Begin with this sentence the press, is not the, enemy of the people those words were unanimously agreed on by the US Senate in a resolution adopted today this followed editorials this, morning in more than, three hundred fifty newspapers denouncing, President Trump's attacks on the news. Media the president responded with several tweets including this statement the fake news media is the opposition. Party mere hours before that, more criticism for Trump, after he suddenly? Revoked the security clearance a former CIA director John Brennan Trump has hinted there may be more to come we're going to focus. On this now with Vernon Loeb he's the politics editor at the Atlantic our first question for him what is a security clearance, security clearances something that gives people in the intelligence community and law enforcement the right to read the deepest darkest secrets to the US government basically On almost everything in. The CIA CIA as world is classified at some level top secret secret sensitive compartment information there. Are all sorts of levels, of classification and a, security clearance gives? One the right to read into information at a certain level John Brennan when he was director would have had the highest clearance. Imaginable So practically for, John Brennan what was able to do yesterday that he can't do today Yesterday he was able to read the secrets of the US government in Vienne formed of what they were and. Be briefed by people at the CIA and the. FBI and elsewhere in the classified world and today he, is shut out of those meetings if John Brennan is no, longer working for the. Government why does it. Matter if his security clearance has been revoked it doesn't really matter it's it's largely symbolic Brennan became so closely identified. With Barack Obama that I'm, pretty sure the Trump CIA had almost no dealings with them Wouldn't have sought his input in particularly sensitive operations wouldn't, have had him back in for briefings so probably he was putting his clearance to. Little use lately so as I said I think this is largely symbolic is it, usual for people to hang onto security clearances in retirement I mean is there any purpose for them there is once you're in the intelligence community you're always in the in the community you never really leave the CIA or the. FBI especially at Brennan's level when you were the. Director it stands to reason if particularly sensitive things are. Taking place around the world the agency would wanna call in, past directors and get. Their counsel on certain. Matters and so sure there's a reason these officials maintain their clearances once they leave government how often they use them Is not really clear I would think, for John Brennan it's a shock not. To have security clearance all the second he's had, won his whole adult. Life it was the the, key to the secret world he inhabited all those years at the CIA and. Suddenly not to have one he is cut out of that world in some way. He never has been
