Suravkin, General Sergei who was the head of Russia's air and space forces was fired and from all appearances he is still in Russia's military. It's just not clear in what capacity. Evgeny Prigozhin, the head of Wagner, turned up in Africa saying he's there with his troops to fight for Russia and Africa. Still a big name that commands loyalty in Russian military circles and Suravkin was one of those Russian military leaders who came out in support of Prigozhin on June 24th during that so -called mutiny. So his firing after being out of sight for months is clear and convincing evidence the Russian military is certainly concerned about the commitment and the loyalty of its troops. Always with the latest in the war between Russia and Ukraine, the stability national security correspondent JJ Green. Rescuers have saved eight people trapped for hours in a cable car dangling above a canyon in Pakistan. The day long ordeal began when six children got into the gondola for a trip to school. Two adults were with them but then a cable snapped bringing the car to a halt and trapping the group in midair. They were suspended hundreds of feet above remote mountainous terrain. Six hours passed before a helicopter arrived. Pakistan military commando staged a daring and delicate rescue at first using helicopters and then a makeshift chairlift. Slowly all eight people were pulled to safety. Villagers frequently use cable cars to get around Pakistan's mountainous regions but the cars are often poorly maintained and cause injuries and deaths every day.

I'm Andrew rode, Bloomberg radio, and JIT, New Jersey institute of technology makes innovation happen. The university helped biomedical engineering professor Tara Alvarez launch a startup that may revolutionize vision therapy. Our startup through NG IT is called ocular motor technology. We create virtual reality, vision therapy in a head mounted display. So it's gaming and basically sugarcoating the therapy so that children and young adolescents don't even realize they're doing therapy. To accomplish this, we need biomedical engineers, which are here in on GIT campus, computer scientists, artists, people that are into story development and then we are collaborating with a lot of the large pediatric medical centers. This idea of a startup culture is extremely important to not just N GIT and the national science foundation, but also to the U.S. as a societal whole. And JIT, New Jersey institute of technology.

"And Amazon who are paying for using our products and using our data, and then about 15% through a large number of foundations who sort of see us as essential infrastructure for the social sector and provide us with ongoing funding to serve that role. So you are in the same boat with our listeners in that regard. Absolutely. We use our own tools. Exactly, exactly. So I want to talk a little bit about it's a good segue. Your funding conversation is a good segue to what I thought was a really intriguing approach. Candid was the recipient of a grant from MacKenzie Scott. I wanted you to talk a little bit about sort of love hearing about what people do with game changing dollars. But you also took a really interesting approach to how you messaged the fact that you got a MacKenzie Scott grant. And I wanted you to talk a little bit about that if you would. Yeah, absolutely. I think that MacKenzie Scott and Dan jewett are great examples of what some have been calling trust based philanthropy. Which is an approach of really changing the power dynamics between funders and nonprofits and rather than having nonprofits play the role of supplicant to try to go out and put out their hat for money that they've taken on the responsibility of doing the research themselves identifying the nonprofits that they want to fund and putting very little burden on those nonprofits such as ourselves to receive that money. Both in terms of there's a very, you know, I don't think there's an application at all. And there's a very lightweight reporting mechanism. We're asked to submit each year of letter of no more than three pages, no particular format to just let them know what we're doing. And so we just came up on that one year mark of receiving our grant from MacKenzie Scott. And we decided to make that letter public because we wanted to live our values of being transparent and also use it as an opportunity to kind of show the impact that this kind of giving can have. And you know, I want to say upfront that candidate has been very privileged to benefit from more resources than many nonprofits. But despite that, we share the same challenges of getting restrictive grants that then pull us off mission and make it hard for us to make those long-term investments that I think are really needed for meaningful change. So I see the gift as not only significant in terms of dollars, which is what I think everybody focuses on is the big ticket dollars. Right. But it's actually equally significant in terms of the flexibility that we're given and how we invest those dollars. Because as you know, historically, there's been what I think is we all generally agree as a misguided focus on non programmatic spending, something we've called overhead in the past as being bad or wasteful. And in contrary, I actually believe that investments in those non programmatic things like nonprofit infrastructure, innovation, and human capital are exactly what we need to maximize our impact. Otherwise, all we're doing is turning a crank that's getting older and older and older over time. Like we need to make those investments and these, you know, this kind of flexible funding, sometimes called general operating support, allows us to do that. So last month, we decided to share our annual grant report publicly in the spirit of transparency. And talked about how we're spending that money. And it's really on three primary things. One was that we gave bonuses to our staff because they were just exhausted after all the crosswinds of COVID, of all the issues that came up around racial justice, of a merger, all sort of converging at the same time.

"Is valid which is why this And we think of this as just another step the next big step in investing is really tackling spending because we think that this is expanding the definition of investing You don't have to wait till you grow accumulate wealth to be able to then invest to grow it You start investing at the beginning of the financial journey right when you start spending So far Robinhood earns the majority of its revenue from trading activity What are the signs you have that a cash card or spending account is something that Robinhood users want There's a couple of things first of all we have a cash management customers that have been using it as part of the brokerage account We do know based on customer research that the next generation of folks are debit primary they're wary of credit card bills They're wary of the pitfalls But at the same time they have high interest in investing whether it's being stock market or in crypto And so we think that this is a way that we can actually help them not only just go about their everyday existing behavior This doesn't require them to change anything But as they do so they'll start to put away a little bit of money towards their tomorrow towards their future So the early signs that we're getting from our product testing are very strong that people love this connection between spending and investing One customer in our research described it as this is a debit card with all the trappings of a credit card and none of its pitfalls So how much revenue do you expect to earn from this product in particular I think there's a couple of really strong things that we are looking for here One of course is our customers really who sign up for it really loving the product using that for their everyday spending turning that those cups of coffee into investing And of course like just like many other FinTech products there's the interchange fees that have been interchanged that we'll learn from this But the second thing which is also really powerful for customers as well as as a business is it starts this virtual cycle of spending turning into investing That is really good for customers for their long term Obviously compound interest is great But also great for us as a business more diversified and more connected and we have multiple product lines now You mentioned in your announcement that for Gen Z credit cards just aren't as popular as a payment method for millennials Why do you think that is and how does that change the future of financing Yeah and this is fascinating Emily because when you dig into it there's a few different reasons One of course the default assumption you go in with is of course there's still building that credit and therefore the credit cards are not accessible to them There's some truth to that But there's two other reasons One is we found a lot of interest from customers in terms of being in control of their cash flows right And not being and being very very of predatory rates that dig a deeper and deeper hole of debt and that they're not able to come out of So that's I think one key reason I think the second reason you think about is there's always a catch And this is where some of how people describe it that there is a catch in terms of the rewards are restricted for a few If you pay your X $100 fee per year then you get this beautiful card If you pay this much money then you get all of these points and so on We just like we are trying to do We have been trying to do on investing side We said what does it mean And what does it take for us to give whatever was reserved for the few for everyone right Great looking card great app with lots of in app security features intuitive design and rewards for that feel like a credit card without any of the catch Robin Hood's chief product officer a pronounced there You can catch the full interview at Bloomberg dot com Meantime MacKenzie Scott has made the largest publicly disclosed gifts and she pledged to give away the majority of her wealth back in 2019 Scott donated $436 million to the home building nonprofit habitat for humanity Scott is the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos According to the Bloomberg billionaires index she is worth more than $54 billion Coming.

So i think it cutting out the middleman look In general and sometimes that makes a ton of sense in the middleman is just adding overhead costs and process and bureaucracy. Sometimes middlemen are important. like we began talking about. Mackenzie scott. Her pathbreaking charitable work. As much as i think is a fascinating story. I do think some of the hoopla around mackenzie is a little premature. Mackenzie certainly has cut out the middleman. In some ways she does not have a big charitable foundation. She's the donor advised fun. Which is sort of a nimble vehicle. For charitable giving. And everyone's talking about mackenzie lectures the greatest thing on god's green and maybe that'll be true. I do think it is certainly possible. That in five years we could find out that mackenzie may be needed more bureaucracy. Maybe she needed a middleman. Maybe she needed kind of more. Traditional charitable advising You know and some sometimes the democracy has has logic. Sometimes it doesn't. I think lots of philanthropists that Find the simplicity of giving to give directly and firing their fifteen hundred employees at the gate. Sunday could regret regretted. But it certainly is like a trend. I think is accelerating right. Now it's all a game man making the money's the game giving it away as a game Some people do better than others on in both directions but ultimately i think it's all just a game there. There's an element there's an either.

I often find frustrating about Some of the act lash kind of philanthropy. Journalism is like oh you should just be thankful. Don't ask these questions about like the game or about whether or not wealthy people are doing good like thankful to give any money away at all and that's a simplistic like rudimentary fire.

"He doesn't my heat of the mind that even the compensation system are sort of geared towards avoiding people becoming extraordinarily wealthy that they stopped being motivated. And yeah it is interpreted as a kind of informal cruelty among some people and that's why Disgruntled former amazon employees or not a rare species to say the least. Let's talk a little bit about some really fascinating things With us including one of my favorite memes circulating twitter is a photo of him in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight sort of bookish looking with glasses and then there's a photo from. I think it was sun valley. Where he's kinda jacked. In a you know a vest and shirt strolling confidently towards the viewer and it was amazon amazon prime and that was everywhere for while. Tell us about the transformation of from a sort of you know. Wall street geek into an overlord right. Well the physical transformation. This is only the most obvious part. Ah right the guy has been working out getting in shape. And and the first book. I i ascribe that from a former friend. His interest in in In in one day go into space and chile's trying to stay fit now. I think it's more i. I suspect it's more. You know the the billionaire fixation with longevity and health but again that's only part of it. He his eyes have opened up to a larger world beyond amazon and and that's the his ownership of the washington post and participation in washington. Dc society In hollywood space company. Hollywood right throwing parties. He simply seems to enjoy the lifestyle. The extravagance that comes with his position much more than he ever did. And and the greatest symbol of this. I never thought. Jeff bezos circa even two thousand and ten would be yok guy someone who's spending time on big both and now reporting the book. He's building this. Massive three three math fastener nasa matha with with its own support yacht with was the right room for a jalapeno and i think part of the influence of lawrence sanchez has part bear part of it as simply him enjoying the world stage human and the robot. The machine that created amazon you know is is susceptible to i. Guess some of the human impulses. Yes so so you we. We already talked Mackenzie scott has former wife gave The everything store a one star review but but har- and and bazo says new girlfriend. Sanchez could not possibly be more different. She's very social and outgoing. Mackenzie scott is a little bit more of an introvert and a homebody. How much of the divorce comes from him wanting to step out a bit and literally the wife wanting a quiet night at home right. What's the genesis of this because there wasn't a whole lot about the divorce other than to say. It was already sort of happening before sanchez. Ever showed up on the scene. I mean bury the this. The easiest answer is that we have no idea. I mean who really knows what happens on the private confidence about marriage to observe. What what you've just said which is mackenzie scott is fiercely private. I think she's done one interview Around the publication of one of her novels She's she speaks Carefully the in the few medium posts that she's written about her philanthropic contributions and she didn't seem to enjoy as much going to the awards shows for the the fashion gallos as as jeff basis did so their their interests for public attention were diverging That's certainly true and in lawrence base those as someone who's extremely comfortable moving in those circles And yet who i. i don't think it's ever possible to You know what what has what really happens in in a marriage to say the least. Let's talk a little bit. You mentioned the washington post Basis really helped to drive a huge turnaround at the post. And i was kinda surprised to read that. The tagline democracy dies in darkness was that really a baseline. Well if you if you remember buried that was a a line in a speech That bob woodward had given crushing of pre watergate aaron judge and then basis had heard that and when he ask marty baron and other executives of the washington post to go find a slogan for the paper he suggested that should be something like democracy is in darkness and then they spent about a year. And probably you know thousands of hundreds of thousands of dollars paying branding firms and coming up with ideas and firing them and they basically got back to democracy dies darkness which originally they had thought was kinda too dreary and then ended up being perfect for the age of donald trump. So yes it was sort of as as inspiration but a little a little bit of well hard to call you. Know that era luck but it certainly was for the post right because even though bay did drive a remarkable turnaround there. They certainly did. They were fortunate by the revival of interest and political news had accompanied the trump. Here's so so it's interesting because as you read the book it's as much about amazon the company as it is about bazo sauce like a bio of him. Was that the intention or did it. Just become clear. You can't write about one without writing about the other. I'm thinking both books. I i thought of them as As yes those both I i you know. Since i'm working with limited access to bases They're predominately about the company's but just is the main character right and you can't when you peel back. The layers of the onion on most major inventions. That amazon most big strategic moves..
"mackenzie scott" Discussed on Lochhead on Marketing
"All right as. I'm sure you've heard bill. And melinda gates are getting a divorce and Jeff bezos said. Mackenzie scott got divorced of late. And the interesting thing about this is these are two of the wealthiest couples in the world The men are to the wealthiest entrepreneurs that have ever existed and these two women are to the most prominent and active philanthropists ever and So what does this have to do with you or me or anyone else for that matter in the business world and particularly in the entrepreneur marketing world. You know the hustle porn stars have been very prominent over the last decade or so telling everybody to work work work and they should never stop working and works the most important thing and hustles most important thing. Well i think there's an high is for us. These were two of the wealthiest entrepreneurs of all time. These couples had more money than any of us will ever wrap our heads around. They can do anything they want at any time they wanted and yet for whatever reason there marriages didn't work now. Look sometimes marriages just In any relationship just run their course. It doesn't mean they fail but it does make you wonder so the first thing i think about on this is you know the reality is if your personal life isn't working all the money in the world can't save you and i think that's what these two divorces show secondarily the decision about who you are Significant other is going to be who your spouse is going to be who you primary partners going to be in. Life is arguably the biggest decision that we make because when it works. It is the foundation for designing a legendary life. And when it doesn't work if your primary relationship doesn't work of course nothing in our lives work. And so i think it behooves us to ask ourselves. Are we designing our life. Our work or our work around our life. Now i know this is not a binary decision and i know it's possible to have a legendary professional career any shitty personal life but is that really what we want. I think what most of us want is we want to have a legendary life and whether working or in our marriage or primary relationship with our family and friends we want to have what you might think of as a three hundred sixty degree life and is it possible to get everything right all the time. of course it's done but in general. I think that's what most of us are trying to do. And in that context our work sits inside of our non work life and so If you're somebody who's been Working too hard Doing what i used to do Work eighty to one hundred hours a week and travel to four hundred thousand miles a year on a plane. I would just ask you to consider. What am i working for. We're living at a time of massive personal self examination that has been brought on by the pandemic. We recently wrote a category pirates about this. How people are going yellow yolo being an expression for you only live once. There'll be a link to it on the show in the show notes. Research shows us that fifty percent of people are considering a job. Change in twenty twenty one and so now is the time for consideration. And i think what these high profile divorces tell us as somebody who's been divorced myself is that it's time to consider our work in the context of our lives.

Bill, Melinda Gates' split after 27 years of marriage
"Final topic is that one of the people. I follow on twitter posted quote after a great deal of thought a lot of work on our relationship. We have made the decision to end our marriage over the last twenty seven years. We have raged three incredible children and built foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation. But we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives melinda gates and bill gates and had a a reaction or to wonder about you brian. How did you what what went through your mind when you heard the news. The only point of comparison. I can really think of with. This is two thousand. Nineteen when jeff bezos split from his. Wife mackenzie scott and she immediately started donating to a number of different Philanthropic causes but that couple when they split really didn't have the philanthropic reach that bill and melinda gates do clearly so i think melinda gates from what i understand of that foundation really does get involved with decisions. That are involved. That happened there. And i get the feeling that if she wants to make any changes to what this foundation does. It's going to involve a lot of time in planning but i really think this is one of those stories where it is. Certainly something personal. I'm sorry that it happened. But i also look at this as something that really could affect a lot of things when i think about philanthropy when i think about public policy and how that's by these dollars that's coming in this is potentially something really big. We're talking about here.
