"And it's democrats in general. Not just those two. They don't single out those two. They single out the whole democratic party democratic infighting it's literally in the senate what it's forty versus two. This is not. This is not a even equal fight. Rather than the fact that those two are the margin of victory. And that's why plus two plus two next year i wouldn't flood let's get. Let's pick up the open seat in pennsylvania. I'm feeling good about that one. Let's get rid of ron johnson. Oh my god that would be great. We don't even know if he's going to run again. He's he's i don't think he's feeling confident right now. And if we held all other seats that's plus to north carolina to tough state. Slight republican lean. Florida always breaks her. Heart you gotta love val demings. She would be the best. Florida always breaks her heart. I am going to fight hard. I am going to hope for the best. I'm not gonna depend on florida for any margin and And so most of the wisconsin pennsylvania. I think are two biggest chances. We have to hold storage. Ira zone nevada. And then if for lucky in there's a bit of a wave than maybe north carolina florida tomorrow if any personality can motivate people if that's the big if it is now door her. Yeah he's gonna rate she's going to raise so much money. It's not going to be a money issue. it's going to be. can't she. get our vote to turn out. Is trump vote gonna turn out again. They didn't in two thousand eighteen but they turned out in two thousand twenty. Ro cubans in miami going to continue with the republicans and they. They really responded well to donald trump's socialism message. They swung hard republican when they had been trending a little bit in our direction. It's a challenging state but on the other hand and this is as gruesome assist. It's the reality. Is that twenty five hundred. Floridians are dying every week because kobe and the vast majority of those are in red counties ron. The santa's is literally killing his own supporters in order to to I don't be up his bona fides for the twenty twenty four presidential election. So we're talking around. Fifty thousand debt debt flirting is in counting The rate doesn't seem to be dropping. It is mostly them and we lost a senate race in two thousand eighteen in florida by ten thousand votes. We lost the governor's race. Rhonda santa's one in two thousand eighteen by thirty thousand votes. They are in the end. Of course famously george. Bush wanted in two thousand because he stopped counting with a five hundred thirty six. So this is a state where the margin of victory is rarely significant. It is florida and there's a very strong possibility next year that a lotta Tight races fall within the margin of the death toll of covert until you think they'd be motivated ticket vaccinated to stop that. But not so..

"So where are if people even know. There was a parliamentarian until about ten minutes ago. No what they definitely didn't know. I mean most people heard about it. You know during trump and a tax cuts. It wasn't like something was be. It was all this new. What is a parliamentary. What can parliamentarian new. The parliamentarian has been more in the news in the past few years. And anytime in my lifetime. And there's always been a parliamentary now in terms of the plus two at this hour. Where do you see that plus to being most likely to come from. It's a tough map. We have to defend mark. Kelly in raphael warnock in arizona in georgia respectively. They want special elections. So now they're going for full term okay. We have to defend nevada. Which was another very close date in twenty twenty so we have three eniva. New hampshire might be competitive. I'm hoping it's not but there's a possibility new hampshire is competitive on the other hand are opportunities are in these states are going to be very familiar. They are in florida north carolina pennsylvania. Wisconsin we have outside chances in iowa and ohio I don't really think we do. I think those states are gone. There too white too rural but wisconsin pennsylvania north carolina florida. All of these states are the exact same states. We have to fight for in twenty twenty right. These were all. Wisconsin was a half a point victory right. Pennsylvania was a three-point Three points is about three point. Democratic victory north carolina three point republican victory. Florida was three point republican victory. These are all razor thin states in an off. Your election were democratic. Performance typically suffers so it is going to be challenging just to even hold our fifty seat majority much less gain it now. We can be the seats. Are there to pick up. So this is going to be very critical to keep people motivated in having you know joe biden Joe biden sport patrol whipping haitians on the border. Isn't exactly really motivate people in having a having joe mansion obstruct. Joe binds own agenda. Doesn't get people motivated. So there's a lot of challenges we need to get there but on the other hand republican doing everything they can to try to get our site outright. The donald trump is is sticking his notes in raising his profile. Abortion is going to be on the ballot in every single one of these state because this is now a state level battle in even a battle for the supreme court our ability to expand supreme court and and rectify the shenanigans the republican of the republicans in the last few few years. So bring court's gonna probably have a ruling the mississippi law sometime that summer right before the election. I've a feeling that the texas law is is is not gonna survive but this mississippi thing it's almost guaranteed makes pass you the supreme court will overturn texas. I think the law is so ludicrous and right now. The two people that are that are suing. The this one brave doctor who's challenging the law may even even the right to life crowd is whining about about the about the plaintiffs when a guy is is a guy in illinois who says he's a pro-choice and he's actually suing for the ten thousand dollars in order to help get the law invalidated. The other guy is a self-described disgraced former litigator who is in house arrest for like ten years..

"Why do they do this. And mark says that that they build this entire propaganda around it like you are keeping america moving. It is your your work that keeps the lights on that keeps industry humming that and so they truly believe in their job. Not as. I'm doing a job like what it should he job now they for them. It's almost ideological they are. What keeps america humming in. That's how they've been sort of propagandize into continuing the fight for a job whose time has long passed and really nobody doing. It is romanticize Loretta all of that. I'm sure they get caught up in it. I know you said that and that's nfl. Ought to be the case. That and i would support it. I think many would support that but so help audience understand because i knew it gets low complicated. I i know it. But then i don't always remember the best way to articulated. How does reconciliation actually work. Reconciliation is every Parliamentary maneuvers almost. Like accidents a procedure. Right none of the stuff was actually. The filibuster wasn't a conscious effort to protect minority rights. It was an accidental parliamentary maneuver. That was in the books that somebody realized could be used to obstructing. that's how it became this big obstructions machine right. Nobody invented filibuster as an actual rule of the senate and the budget reconciliation sort of falls in that in that bucket where it was for whatever historical reason if a bill has x. budgetary impact in it has to be neutral so you can have new taxes. It has to be revenue neutral. If you have certain conditions than it doesn't need it bypasses the filibuster again. Nobody map this out. Nobody created or carved out an exception to the filibuster. It just somebody figured out. Oh you're gonna use. We're parliamentary trickery. That filibuster will be if you dig into the in you know mark. It's far beyond my level of expertise and parliamentary procedures in the rules of the senate but somebody found out this exception to the rule and historically only been used i think once or twice a term suddenly this year democrats magically discovered that you could do it a third time now. I don't know if that's actually somewhere in the rules. Or they just declared it you know and but you still have this sort of budgetary impeccable and this is where bringing in the parliamentarian can come in and say well that doesn't meet the rules. The definition of of budget reconciliation now. This scene parliamentarian said that the trump tax cuts which generated trillions of dollars of debt. Could be pass under the rules of budget. Reconciliation remers supposed to be revenue neutral right. There was no. There was no analysis of the tax cuts credible analysis. I'm not talking mitch. Mcconnell's bs right. There is no credible analysis. Said this was going to be revenue neutral but the but the republicans pretended that it would be an. Oh you know. There's a parliamentarian so parliamentarian has been very generous with republicans. She's been very hostile to democrats to to be fired because democrats can even ignore her. There's nothing saying the democrats run the joint they can. They can turn any rule. The promise joe manchin is going to be there being like you know you know. I think joe manchin hiding behind parliamentarian as a way to try to block as much of the.

Good good to see you. Good good to have you with us as always against one of the biggest things all right now just in terms of visual. I get your response to that early. What's going on with haitians at the border and people on horseback pushing back haitians. That is not looking good for biden or harris right. Now they've gotta gotta do something about that and then of course once again. This country seems to get most riled up when haitians try to come in other people. Calm people get upset about it but is like there's this obsession with haitian people fleeing would we all know they're dealing with that's been well recorded on and and trying to come here. Yeah i gotta say that the way haitians have been treated right now is viscerally upsetting to me. It just cuts so deeply that i cannot believe that this is something that the a democratic administration would do. There's been a migration of haitians from latin. America patients that live in latin america. They're being dumped in haiti where they don't even live on haven't generational haven't been. They speak spanish but because are black. In haitian they're being shipped off without any kind of processing without any hearing of any asylum claims without anything like that. They're just being dumped off. In haiti where they don't know anything in the middle of what is basically the somalia of our side of the world. There's no functioning government gangs in warlords run the country. It is a health scape and the by administration is inches rounding. These pedophiles upsetting enough. Now we see the images of border patrol last sewing them whipping them from horses so one thing the one thing the the buying hairs administrations. I think realizing that we're not. We're not republicans. We're not going to sit there and put up with idiocy in cruelty from our government because he's our team you know it's nice mark. We had a few months where we can actually be really happy and and we said we said maybe you know if there's a reason nicorette size biden. We're going to criticize buying just like we didn't want obama was president than here we go. Here's our up. And i'd rather not. I really would rather focus on how we can get. Voting rights reform passed in the bill. Better law passed with over the obstructionism of christian cinema joe mansion. We got so many issues. Why why given. The state of haiti were more than capable as a country to welcome refugees but yes why mark black. That's why that's it. I mean there's nothing else. I mean latinos treated you know that much better. We received the right wing going crazy over if afghan refugees. So but you're right. There's something viscerally crueler about the way patients are being treated and I'm not surprised that america is a country hostile because we we know who we are now as a country like. There's no illusions anymore. But i certainly expected better from a by inherits administration biden put this in the lap of vice president in terms of dealing with the board crisis which i would not have more that job..

"But. There are a lot of headwinds, right? I mean, same headwinds party in power, all this was just Joe Biden's approval ratings are going down. He's definitely getting hammered right now. Afghanistan did him no favors. And neither has the fact that nothing has happened since that first stimulus bill way back almost 6 months ago. And letting Joe Manchin and Kristen cinema just tie things up and stymie. I think has been problematic and has hurt Biden. And so Democrats need to get their ass in gear. They need to deliver. I mean, we had a daily cost civics poll last month found that. Only 30% of Americans gay Joe Biden credit for. The child tax credit that they're getting every month, the stimulus checks. All that 60%, 60, 65% said that they had benefited from a government program and only 30% gave Joe Biden credit. Was that? We do a crappy job of explaining part of it is just partisanship, right? Like you're not gonna Donald Trump came in and gave me a $1 million. I still wouldn't give him credit for it. And I think that's far. I think there's that. But I think a lot of it is, you know, Donald Trump signed. He put his name on the stimulus checks in, you know, in 2020. Joe Biden didn't. We need to go. No, you know what? You play the game they play. Yeah. If Congress has a problem with it, fine. Like sign the bill that says that says you can't do that anymore. But they started it. Some people are getting checks. You know, last checked the guy says Donald Trump, you check the mother random people's person's name that they don't know. I won't probably yell in the treasury. And then how are they gonna give Joe Biden credit? Yeah, yeah. Yeah. So there's a lot of challenges, but we need to start delivering for people for sure. And you got to give people a recent reason for them to vote for Democrats. And that would complement nicely the bruising to vote against Republicans, which Republicans are making on their own. Yeah.

"So if we can't trust black people that the civil rights movement fought to get through school and to get in these positions to advise us and oversee that, then I don't know what we're doing. And a lot of people are losing their lives unnecessarily. And I'm going to tell you. I'm hearing people every day too. See, this is going to be, you know, you're going to have to deal with it because some places are not allowing people to come back to work. Unless the vaccinated is something like that. And I'm not saying that's the fairest thing in the world. But that's happening. In a minute, then I'm going to let it get on planes. In some way to go to Jamaica, a lot of places in the Caribbean today, we now get on the plane without a vaccination. And still a test. They're not playing down there. And these are predominantly black countries. They are not playing. People who are leaving the country who live there and want to come back home and live there. If you've been away to America, you're going to give me a vaccination card and you got to give me tests. I think in some countries, they want two tests. They want one, two weeks before you get on a plane, and one right before you get on a plane too. They're not playing. That makes sense. We know that vaccine doesn't prevent you from getting it now from carrying it. Right. So folks, you know, and what we've had guests come on the show. And talk about how this is a new reality. This is not the last pandemic we're going to see in terms of what we're dealing with in humanity right now. So we may just have to go ahead and get used to the fact and understand it. This kind of stuff is going to be with us. And so we had to make the adjustment..

"I mean, so a significant number of people because it's such a confusingly stupid system doesn't make any sense. To try to educate people to vote no and in vote for this one other person is a very muddy muddled messaging problem. It totally failed during great divers. So this time around, they basically said, no, we're not going to have any credible people. It's up or down. It's either you turn out and vote for Gavin Newsom, or you're going to have a Republican QAnon radio hose, crazy right winger. As governor of California had to be very temporary, you know, he swapped out next year. But that's the place where things are right now. And so am I worried the polls show that the no vote is at 60%, but it's almost impossible to model out turnout. Because everybody's got a ballot sitting under countertop. How do you model who actually fills it out in males that back in or drops it off at a mailbox? Right now, like I said, I don't actually do it really well. And Republicans are actually trying to message for people that it's okay to vote by mail, which is actually kind of hilarious because they've been conditioned by Trump to think that voting by mail is the devil. And now they have this big problem that not only are there people really not turning in ballots. But they're going to depend on election day turnout and to fund a get out the vote operation in the state's biggest California's expensive. I don't know if they have them. I don't think they have the money. So I think we win this, but it's not by any means assured. And there's an element of oh crap. This could get ugly really quick. Yeah, yeah..

There should be real concerns about the Bulls front court heading into this upcoming season. I would say, absolute shot. But what I will say, is, despite the fact that the front court is a little lacking the truth is that what the Bulls for an office has done in this offseason rebuilding the entire roster for the most part, and I'll add Brian, just the fact that they were able to get something for Lowey Lowry marketing much less a first round pick, I'll be it lottery protected.

"Because at the midterm election first term president history is against us that republicans are working so hard to suppress the votes and that we have gerrymandering coming up ahead of us right. So there's all these factors are going to stand in the way of expanding. Oh and then there's the senate which of course adds america becomes a rural areas empty out. It means that those leftovers in places like the dakotas nebraska are gonna head even more influence even though the states are losing population. So what's virginia literally lost population so we have all these institutional disadvantages facing us we have to overcome in. It's not fair and it sucks in. it's not right in it's not democratic and yet that's the reality of our situation and if we were somehow able to pull through we can motivator people turn out in votes if we build those majority and we're not even talking a lot right. We need to three seats in the senate. We can do it. It's incredibly hard. I'm not gonna say it's likely but it's possible. If we can survive redistricting in voter approach as suppression to grow our majority in the house then thinks that we've been talking about like dc. Statehood may be puerto rico statehood avoiding a real voting rights. Bill banning partisan gerrymandering. All those things can then happen in. It becomes much different political situation overnight. We can even pack the supreme car. Pack that sucker just expand. Their branded changed the composition. There's so much. We can do to reshape american politics but it really comes down to an election in an off year when historically the party in power loses seats and we as democrats have a hard time getting our baseball's to turn out period and especially so in a midterm election. So there's all there's so much opportunity mark but there's so many challenges and republicans this which is why they're working so hard to obstruct to delay to suppress berg and to make it to frustrate liberal so that they don't wanna turn out next year the way. They did not turn out in. Twenty ten in cinema in mansion are playing along with them in. I will not. I will never understand why they think that's a good choice. Good course of action more after this message. Not a lot of time left but afghanistan. there's been a shift. obviously at one point people were almost unanimously in favor of a pull out. Now this flipped. I honestly marcos. Blame the beltway. In the corporate media for that the way they have portrayed it in different ways to portray this. No one has ever not never before in history have that many people been airlifted in such a brief period of time. That's an objective fact but instead it's being presented as just a crisis and something. That biden is at fault for doing and is just bedlam. But i mean it's like thousands of people and they're not finished twenty five thousand yesterday alone. We're about seventy five thousand since the airlift began in the first few days. Yeah we're chaotic. Because nobody expected the taliban to just sweep in with zero opposition. So there's a lot of criticize about not starting this earlier in about a lot of red tape preventing some of the stuff you know. We should have been processing this months ago and we were arguing about that months ago so this is not monday morning quarterbacking like we knew that we needed to get those people out. Everybody knew the taliban was in a takeover. They just expected to take a couple of months. That said once the operation was organized. Took a couple of days. Because you don't organize you don't plan overnight but once adults organized. It isn't incredible logistical feat. And it's i've i'm in awe of the numbers that they're moving right now..

"Fuck you know what unites to say back. His all kicked off was that you know you talk about is nation-building as worse as world war one but even historic had numerous. Is we read on this and most do that. Nation is undefeated period when it comes to conflict in conflicts within it. no has bested. Whatever situation was afghanistan. no one's on their come out will in we said this distinct kicked off lazy dumber. We should also acknowledge that. It was united states central intelligence agency that with the help. Ables lured the soviet union into and which ultimately ended the so so now clearly united states isn't about to end per se while it may be working elliott nick's topic but if it can have remained level station to a government in a protracted war the logic behind this Aas meaning that it states was.

"markos" Discussed on MIP Make It Plain with Mark Thompson

"The nation building. Clearly you wanna say hindsight's twenty twenty but when when it hasn't worked hasn't worked since world war two since since germany and japan right. I mean once efforts to nation build when you don't have that public support to do so and they would take historians for more knowledge me to to really understand why japan and germany were different than vietnam or because they didn't have insurgencies right they. There wasn't an active war but nation-building just hasn't really been the thing that works and to think that we sunk two trillion dollars into afghanistan just literally hinted to the taliban ninety. We're not even out in a already been handed over to. The taliban is is unconscionable end that we let not only did we leave our allies. Our local out gani allies behind but they have access to all the records. Nobody even bothered to burned records. Lino the identities of every special forces soldier that fought alongside us troops. They know every identity of every translator. They have all the information you need to do to round up and imprison or execute people that work with us on our promise to try to build a better afghanistan into the fact that they haven't been leaving for months ago. We have plenty of advance notice. We knew this was coming. This was this was not a surprise and that everybody was caught behind. Nobody had been pulled out. Everybody was copy. Hind is moral failure in that one invited. I'm not afraid to say not pulling out. But so i would say every president bush got us into that mess roussette. He started this whole chain of disaster. Obama kept it going for eight years six months six more months kinda thinking. Of course trump negotiated without the gan government and create the conditions..

Co-Founder Marko Anastasov on the Creation of Semaphore

"Marco and staff has been working with computers for a longtime. He grew up in former yugoslavia in the nineties. When there was civil war hyperinflation in the economy was taken back twenty years. His father was electronics guy. There was always a computer around the house. He found himself fascinated with information. And the things. You could conjure up on the magic screens. And he found that computers were place. You could build things that were not influenced by the outside world as a kid. He played sports mainly volleyball. He's taken many lessons from his time playing volleyball. Where a group of people have shared sense of purpose driving towards a goal while building applications under the guise of his web development agency rendered text. He and his fellow builders saw a need to have a way of automating the processes of building testing and integrating and doing so fast. This is the creation story of semaphore. Semaphore is cloud based product for college. You companies our customers are software development teams and semaphore helps them. Automates the process of testing and deploying code. That's kind of a big deal these days because you know software is built collaboratively. The problem that people need saul is how. How do you build software together. You know multiple people adding new codes implications. How do we make sure that it's everything's actually working right. So that's why in modern software development. You know there is an emerging practice of automating various phases of testing and delivering basically applications to end users and customers. So we help them do that. Productively because our product is thing here of that whole aspect of building software for them. Prior to creating similar we were small web development consultancy company was called rendered text. It's still call that but semaphore is what more more now in the world in our practice of basically building applications for clients typically like small start ups we basically saw needs to have how way of automating these processes of testing and integrating software together

S6 E12 - This is how to get (financially) healthy

"Your housing your food your transportation and then medical and absolute necessities so if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare because you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle spending. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of welcome to another episode of the we serve now. What podcast the show. Where i do my best to answer the questions veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life. My name is aaron perkins. I'm a us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos. I'm the author of the resolve book and that is a step by step guide. That takes you the veteran through a process of rediscovering. Your life's purpose. After you left the military. And i gotta tell you i have so been looking forward to today's episode because my special guest is here to talk about something that matters to every single one of us is topic money. My guest today is quite boss. Marco is a twelve year navy veteran who deployed in support of operation enduring freedom. He got out got his bachelor of science. Degree started a side gig as a financial coach in two thousand sixteen while working in the nonprofit industry in didn't take marco long to realize that he was struggling with a lot of the same financial issues as the people. He was trying to help so in an attempt to fix his own struggles. Marco applied business cash flow principles to his own finances with an eighteen months. He added nearly one hundred thousand dollars to his net worth and his skills are skills that anyone can use. Marco now has his own financial consulting business. Called live like others. can't marco. it is so good to have you on the show today. Welcome to we serve now. What a thanks for having me on. It's pleasure to be here to serve all the rest of the veterans. They're listening absolutely man absolutely. Been looking forward to have you on the show. So what just take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit of your back story how you got here. Well you covered a lot of it which was great but like it said so. I served twelve years of military. And when i got out i had a mountain of debt. I think it was like sixty thousand dollars in debt. When i left active duty was going to school got my bachelor business management and when moved down to florida a job. They're kinda help me pay down some more of The debt that ended up having once i got back from afghanistan. 'cause so side note. I went to afghan volunteer to to afghanistan to pay off my consumer debt and paid off the debt and then had a ton of money when i got back and did some investments that were really great but the problem was is. I didn't change my spending habits and some other habits. That i had that were really ingrained so i ended up building up that data again and was down in florida before i moved back home to ohio i ended up with like it probably about another twenty grand worth of debt when i moved back home and i was like said twenty twenty sixteen. I started looking at my personal finances. I got married in two thousand fifteen and after a year of trying to manage to all that we finally got everything into really like one pot start applying the business finance principles to my own personal finances and when i first started i was negative. Twenty five thousand dollars in my net worth so because all everything and i still wanna own twenty five thousand dollars so when i started applying some of those principles and turned it around and it was like oh my gosh in eighteen months be able to get to seventy five thousand and net worth. It was not so. I started taking some of those same principles and teaching some people. I knew some friends. And it's like okay. I really got something here but was really interesting. Is that these same principles basic math principles but these are the same things that have teaching the low income. People that for the nonprofit that i was working at so is really crazy that. There's so much parallel. The only difference is that my mistakes were spectacular because there is a larger amount of income to work with so it's it's really interesting the mindset that we don't teach so i that's what it was like. Okay there's a group of people working in the nonprofit world and the rule low income side of things. There's a whole support system around that but there's very few supports for this this middle class. The wealthy know how to do it. The low income have a ton of support. And when you're trying to make that transition to from low income or even the lower middle-class into an upper middle class even making that transition if you don't have some the fundamentals You're never gonna make it or it's gonna take forever by the time you retire like oh okay now i get. It would have been great thirty years ago. Sure so that's why i got into. That's what i got into being a coach. Cool man all right. So so the first question i have for you is it. It's a simple one. But i think it's one of those things that needs to be addressed because a lot of us find ourselves in a situation where we think that our finances are kind of like a bygone conclusion. You know i grew up in poverty. You know song going to stay in poverty. And so i don't even think about i. Just go through the motions. I you know. I get the car loan. I get credit cards. I get in debt. You know i do all these sayings in. I'm not really focused on my financial health right so when it comes to finances why should i even care. How big of a deal is it. Well i would have to say just starting out. It's actually perfect timing because this last year taught all of us. I mean how many people lost their jobs or were furloughed or laid off and maybe two never even get them back. It can come at any time. And if you're not prepared for it is what a lot of people don't realize is that when they signed their name for alone they're trading future time for something right now and it takes a special type of person to be an entrepreneur to be to be able to go out and create wealth but the majority of americans work for their money as opposed to creating their money. If that makes sense and there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong going to work and and working a nine to five job you can be in everyday millionaire working a nine to five job you can. It's entirely possible but it's just. It's really crazy that when when wrenches thrown into it that we lose traction so fast if thing was like bank rate. It's on the ads that you've been running for me so it's six hundred ten. Ten people don't budget seven ten barely budget. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck. It's it's crazy as stupid number. Eighty percent of the people in the us are living paycheck to paycheck. That's nuts. That really is so eight out of ten people living paycheck to paycheck. Just you know if if you miss a paycheck or like you just mentioned you lose your job because of whatever reason pandemic or anything else. It's a huge impact. Not just. I don't know how i'm gonna pay bills for the next couple of weeks but it can like really really set you back. I think it's a perfect setup to talk about. What you just mentioned budgeting a little bit right. A lot of people don't budget so let's say for example. I know what a budget is. You know i've heard the term of. I've seen it on the news talk about but i've never tried it for me and for my family. Can you give us an insight into that. Like where do you even get started. Well sure an you can do a search on the internet for how i do a budget and almost all of them are going to give you the first piece of bad advice that you will ever hear when it comes to budgeting track your expenses for the next month. No you don't have to track your expenses for the next month. You know why because what you do. This month is the exact same thing he did last month. Just pull your bank statements. Look at your bank statements. That will is a great snapshot of your personal financial behavior and what your lifestyle choices are and when you take a look at that then you've got you've got gotta place all of those into a it or as we'll talk a little bit here a of a wall for foundation. There are four things that you have to take care of everything else is fluff and you can create whatever whatever other buckets you wine or i mean flake from an accounting. Were coming perspective. These are lineups okay. So you've got you've got your income and your expenses and then your expenses or all of your line break it down and then it breaks down even further when you file your taxes so every category that you make is a line item but there's four that are super important. Four and a lot of the times people tried to budget everything and they say okay budget down every last dollar and even the even the dollars that you're gonna put into savings if you don't have a good foundation to take care of the basic things that you need to have. It doesn't matter what you put into savings. It doesn't matter what what you spend on clothes. It doesn't excuse me it doesn't matter what what extra expenses and entertainment things that you wanna do. You've got to have these four things. Take care of i and what's interesting about them. Is it lines up. Perfectly with maslow's hierarchy and i'll leave it at that for further on all right so talk to us a little bit more about the four walls right. You mentioned the four walls and you know unite chatted about these a little bit before we go kind of hit the record button here as we were preparing for the show but that i'd never heard that term before the four walls. Can you explain like what those four walls are shirt. A quick back story on on the four walls. Is that if you do any personal financial searching on the internet. You're probably gonna come across the name. Dave ramsey dave ramsey. Oh yes some guy of phenomenal mindset really. Is there some things. Because i'm a business guy. There's some things that i can't entirely subscribe to because for me personally. There is some good debt. Because i'm a business guy. I used other people's money to make more money for my business. So that i can go ahead and potentially hire somebody in sure. Grow the economy that right right so for me. There is some good data. But from dave ramsey's perspective. There's no debt is good so the four walls are the four basic things that you need to survive. And when i say talking about maslow's hierarchy the bottom two levels of maslow's hierarchy pyramid are psychological and safety and that deals with food shelter and essentially money and i clued transportation in that because you need transportation get to and from work sir so the four walls are actually order. I it's it's your housing your food your transportation and then i. I don't like saying catch off for this last one but medical and other absolute necessities. So if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare 'cause you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle. Spending this is still considered lifestyle spending as well but this is your baseline lifestyle. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of and as you're going through the math and figure out okay. I'm not bringing in enough to cover the us basic four things. you're living to lavishly. You have played into the game of catching up with the joneses. You're trying to find too many influencers and live like them and showcase to the world. What all the amount of debt that you're bringing on is essentially what you're showcasing. You're not living the good life you're actually living a really crappy life. So that's kind of the premise of the four walls. And it when. I didn't really know that term when i first started doing my own budgeting but i realize kay. I've got regular monthly expenses that i always have to pay out have to pay my mortgage. I always have to pay the insurance. I always have to put gas in my car. Food on the table and a couple of medications and and some clothes. Those are the things that always spend money on every single month. What's fantastic about that is because it is you have the ability to look back over the last twelve months and really identify what your lifestyle is just by those expenses alone. Yeah that's that's interesting and it's it's definitely a a i won't say it's that different but it's definitely different than like you said what a lot of folks are gonna find when they do that. Google search for when they do that duck go search right on the internet of. Hey how do. I do a budget you know. What are the first things. I i should consider and and using hierarchy of needs and for those who are familiar with it. This basically just a pyramid that that stacks from bottom to top the needs. Every person has basic needs like markos already talked about psychological needs and then tops off. Self-fulfilment needs achieving your full potential including creative activities. And things like that. But with the four walls i know. They're all critical right but is one more important than the other. Is that the all really really for lack of a better term foundational for your financial health. They all are foundational. But dave will argue. And i kinda back this little bit. Is that if you have a choice between spending money on your electric bill and spending money on food you buy food and you can work with the company to to keep your electricity on food. Would probably the be the highest priority. Next would be your housing so everything that's involved with your housing your mortgage your mortgage. Iran's your utilities and then transportation would be third because there are things that you can do if you're spending too much on transportation. There's things that you can do to to lower those expenses but we can get into that little bit and then obviously medical. Now it's it'd be a toss up then if you've got to take medications or you need food a well. Okay then yeah but but at the same time. If the majority americans being healthy and not needing a whole lot of medications food would be the top priority so food station and then the other necessities sure sure so that so that kind of helps me prioritize as far as you know if i do find myself in a situation like I don't know what i'm going to you know. I only have so much money this month. And i can't pay whatever this one bill. Is you know kind of helps me. Prioritize food housing transportation medical. You know and then if it's more detailed it's down to the really really fine details of a few dollars here versus a few dollars here then. I think that's something you really just sit down like. If it's if it's you by yourself you just make the best decision right an absolutely. If it's you with your family you know you sit down with your spouse and or with your partner and you you talk about it like what do we want to do this month to make ends meet well and and i would say to that the amount of people who actually don't realize where their money's going is phenomenal so he say eighty percents living paycheck to paycheck. I would say one hundred percent of that. Eighty percent have no idea whether money's going and they don't realize that they probably have enough coming in to cover these four walls and then some that the problem comes is when they make all of the additional lifestyle choices and then they're like oh. I don't have enough money for food while it's because they just bought a thousand dollar iphone. So i mean like i know that's really rudimentary example. Because most people are buying their phones on the month to month plan that they put on that they tacked onto your bill which side note really crazy. I was trying to buy a new phone for my wife. No cellphone store will let me pay full price outright for the phone. They forced me to put it onto a monthly plan. Really i is crazy not i was like. I've got nine hundred dollars. That i'm gonna pay you right now and they don't want it. They want it on the monthly plan. So what's funny is so my family. We are an android family. Okay we've always been. We've never gotten into the iphones. You know my daughter. She's a teenager now. So she's kind of leading me toward the iphone but we've always been an android family and for the past few years. I have bought all of our phones directly from samsung. I don't know if you can do that with apple or not if it has to be carrier specific and you have to do over a month to month plan but if i go to samsung dot com. I can just buy that phone outright. I couldn't yeah. I basically i swipe my card more or less you know and you type in my numbers. He and then a couple of days i get new phone on my on my doorstep and so have to remember that for my wife because she's a samsung guy. I'm an iphone. Yeah for sure and so we when we started doing that. We've been with our with our carrier for. I don't know five six seven years now and so we're not really planning on leaving and going to another carrier. But i do get the unlocked phones just in case i need to right and so and so it is really nice to just be able to swipe their credit card and be like. Hey here you go. Here's all the money up front. I don't have to worry about that That money coming out every month right so off that sidetrack for second sorry about that it was just. It was really crazy when i was trying to do that. I couldn't believe that is crazy for phone. So why things that. When when i sit down with somebody and i'm going through this. Is that a lot of people. Don't realize all of the essentially the line items within each of these categories so under housing. There's a couple of lines you've got your mortgage or your rent which includes particularly if you have a mortgage. It also

Islamic State 'Beatles' in court over US hostages' deaths

"Fighters have been charged in U. S Federal Court for the deaths of four American citizens in Syria. Widely reported killings happened six years ago. But it was just today that Alexander Coty and El Shafie L shake were extradited from Iraq to the US so they could stand trial. The world Sharon Jafar has been following the events today for us. What can you tell us? You're in about the charges he's manner facing. Well, Michael with these two men have now being charged the SYRIZA felony offenses unofficial at the Department of Justice today without the charges. Conspiracy to commit hostage taking, resulting in death. Hostage taking, resulting in death. One count for each of the American hostages. James and those Americans Marco are James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Kayla Mueller and Peter Kassig, who were aid workers and journalists in Syria when the Islamic state was operational in the country, and you might remember Marco the gruesome videos off the beheadings that came out at the time. It was really shocking and terrible. Those were horrific videos. What have you heard from the families today? Sharon. I reached out to the family of James Foley, The journalist who was tragically beheaded in Syria on the representative for the family told me that they are inundated with media requests today, but they have put out a statement saying that they welcome these charges on the fact that these men are facing justice in American court. It's been six years since these American citizens were killed in Syria. Why did it take so long to bring these men to the U. S? Well, First of all, it was very difficult to find and capture. These men remember, Syria was in the middle ofthe war. It still is. And these men were captured by Kurdish forces in northern Syria in 2018, and then since then, they've been transferred to Iraq and they were held in U. S military custody in Iraq, but the US couldn't just extradite them because they are British citizens. How did that complicate matters? The British government said it won't cooperate with the U. S. Unless it rules out the possibility of giving these men that death penalty. Here's how Bruce Hoffman, with the Council on Foreign Relations, explained it to me. The United States indicated that if Coty and I'll Shaffi, I'll share Were brought to the United States, They would face the death penalty. Of course, the United Kingdom abolished the death penalty some decades ago. And generally will not extradite persons to other countries where they have the potentiality of facing death. Then what happened? Marko was the attorney General William Board said Fine, We won't seek the death penalty and just hand these guys over and that's how they ended up here in the U. S. Now, I should mention that if convicted, thes men could face life in prison. Sure Intel us more about these two men. Who are they? And what do we know about how they ended up with Isis in Syria? Thes. Two men lived. Invest London and a few years ago, they decided to travel to Syria and join the Islamic state. They ended up being part of a group of four men, all from the UK who allegedly kidnapped, tortured and killed foreigners in Syria. Their captives gave them the nickname the Beatles because they all spoke with British accent. On as to what happened to the other two members of this group. One of them was killed in an air strike in 2015, and another one is in prison in Turkey. So these air two men could these cases serve as precedents for prosecuting more Isis fighters in U. S courts. I had the same question, and I called up Matthew Levitt to get his take his director of the Reinhardt program on counterterrorism at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. There've been many cases in U. S court involving significant terrorism trials. There has not been a case quite like this. That is involved the kind of brutal not just kidnapping but murder beheading of American citizens. The use of footage from those murders in terrorist propaganda of the type that has been seen around the world. Michael Levitt also pointed out that this required a lot of cooperation between different countries. And it just goes to show just how important these corporations are to bringing Islamic state criminals to justice.

What Counts As Augmented Reality?

Robot or Not?

What Counts As Augmented Reality?

"Marco got some augmented reality glasses by which I mean sunglasses with headphones in them and that prompted listener and to ask what counts is augmented reality headphones are headphones any headphones augmented reality. are are glasses are sunglasses are marco sunglasses are the new Alexa glasses that that look kind of ridiculous where you can put them on and talk to Alexa are any of these things what what makes an augmented reality product really I'm reminded of when we discussed smart devices this falls under under similar umbrellas that was like when as wanted something smart appliance smart whatever and it was like after I if it has more computerized stuff than it did before the term smart whatever was coined so augmented reality I mean it's actually been a term for a very long time but the mainstream knowledge of that term is fairly recent and the reason Markos glasses aren't actually augmented reality glasses and to be clear to explain what these are they greg this sunglasses but the they call the temples which is what they're actually called but you might call them the stick men down a whole episode about the things that you name parts of glasses yeah no yeah temple some are very thick and they play sound all right so because things that go on your head I sound vaguely in the direction of your ears long predate mainstream knowledge of the term augmented reality they're not augmented reality is by the fact that a kind of sort of do augmented reality although I would argue in a very limited way really depends on how they're used because I think they're mostly just speaker say it's like plugging a little like little earpiece from a transistor radio in your ear in nineteen seventy eight to at a baseball game is not I guess it's augmenting the reality of you watching the baseball game but I would not in a million years call that augmented reality I mean th the Monitors Bluetooth and in theory your phone could be used in conjunction with them to provide an actual augmented reality like you could be sightseeing when you arrive at a certain location plays the sound of that location or something like that it would be it would be the audio output device it wouldn't actually doing any of those yeah but but because audio has such a precedent of putting thing on your head to play audio they're basically Bluetooth headphones yeah glasses attached so they are not augmented reality I'm originally would would air pods or these Alexa glasses or something like that that is a little more intelligent and I'm just sort of wondering where you draw the line with those beyond reality would could we conceive of an audio product that is augmented reality what if like I could leave the House with only air pods and they knew where I was and I could talk to them and they could tell me stuff can I cross over the line into it being augmented reality or does it really needs to be something that is not in my ears it's not the design your years is just that it's serving as just dumb sort of sound out advice oh to give an example of all only augmented reality device you could have something that goes on your head and like maybe it's for like people with impaired vision You're blind people like there would have radar or something to since the surroundings and give you kind of like clicks or some other kind of auditory who about where things are that would be an augmented reality audio only thing because it's basically like a device that allows you to quote unquote see without action seeing right I was thinking of something like you know a glasses or air pods or something like that that's got you know it's got gps it's got camera it's got all sorts of location sensing it's got machine learning it's on the Internet and even if you're not blind you know if you're standing somewhere and it says your next appointment is across the street and to the right and it'll end it's like telling you like the stuff or or whispering the name of the person you're talking same thing same like that it's it's more than that it's not just playing audio from some other device because unfortunately like here's the thing ar glasses if when they arrive in various forms could end up being intially dumb screens that your phone talks all the smarts glass Google glass not only did it not which is I think there's a definition here the replacing a layer over reality that's the idea here Google glass was just talking to your phone and displaying a little tiny screen that had nothing to do with it you were looking at it was literally just a an apple watch that you didn't have to look at your wrist to see and that's not a are but if I'm overlaying on top of reality I feel like then we have a conversation about if that's augmented reality or not like the unfair thing for audio is exact same situation where you've got a phone that has all the smart attendance basically using your the thing on your head as an audio output device not aarp but if you have a phone that has all the smarts and he's using your glasses as it video up a device suddenly they are yeah yes I were avoiding the obvious definition which is like if it actually overlays things on stuff that you see so it knows which direction you're facing put labels on streets or buildings people's faces like it's obviously a are trying to find like how how far can you go how dumb okay servers audio output devices they don't know call A. R. Despite performing basically the exact same job as visual version of that same thing right I think that there's an or experienced to be had with something like air pods or these Alexa glasses tied in with other sensors and things like that but I I'm not sure I would call the headphones themselves are it's more like you're having an ar experience that is because your phone knows where it is and nobody's got an ultra wideband beacon on them on their person and it's like it knows who everybody isn't all whatever that that thing is or or it's got a camera but the processing is being done and somewhere else then you're having an ar experienced but like you have to get that extra step beyond and I think context is part of it right that that it needs to be seeing in some way what's around you what's real and then replacing it like if a pair of air pods or Alexi glasses or something in the future could hear somebody talking in a foreign language and whisper the translation in your ear I'd I'd say that probably qualifies as a are yeah the audio stuff to get over the hurdle I think actually has to augmented reality has to be aware of what's there has to alter it in some way whereas I think the video one even if you had a video on that was like literally just looking at the screen on your phone but through your glasses I think I would still call that ar even though it sounds like just as dumb display the device it doesn't augment reality in any way but you would say oh it's a are because it's augmented reality by showing me and my phone my phone is actually in my pocket but I look I can see my phone that's right they're just because just because of the unfairness of when the term ar was introduced into the mainstream his injuries before that was the thing see well after audio I don't think like looking at my email on some glasses as they are but if I brought up maps APP and it was tied in with my location but I feel like it needs to do something based on context of of the reality around me if otherwise it's just a separate display if it's interactive in some way I I give wide sued for anything with video because the thing is we can't look around and see our phone we can only see it when we actually physically look at our phones at any instance in which we can see our phone when our phone actually isn't there is is kind of augmenting reality is just a I think you need some kind of interaction with it because the well I don't know I go either way on that I think it'd be a generous but I see what you mean because of the time that term was coined because that's not a thing that people do we know nobody who sees their fallen look around everyone we know has to look physically at their phone that's just the state of technology so as soon as you can see your phone without looking at your actual phone your augmenting reality with a edge case because there will be something like markos glasses where somebody will claim something is augmented reality but it's really just sort of like a phone display for your face it's not not watching TV show or movie like the really like I'm not actually looking at a screen of my device by devices again in my pocket as long flight but I look in front of me and I see the video right and I think that qualifies as the it's the Roomba of reality it is the minimum thing you could say okay maybe if the screen is mapped to the back of the airline seat so that it looks like it's actually there I don't need it to be mapped I just need to look like it's like five feet out in front of you all right

Mars Cube One

"There's big potential in small packages is innovation. Now, Mark, how short for Mars cube. One was the first interplanetary mission to use a class of mini spacecraft all cubesats before the pair of briefcase sized spacecraft launched last year. Their success was measured simply by survival, if they were able to operate in deep space at all they would be pushing the limits of experimental technology, but the Markos nicknamed eve and Wally after characters in Pixar film, did more than just survive. Wally sent back. Stunning images of Mars eve, performed simple radio science and the payer served as communications relays during insights landing beaming back data to earth in near real time. The daring twins seem to have reached there. Limit. It has been over a month since engineers have heard from Marco, even if they're never heard from, again, the NASA team considers Marco a spectacular success and who knows future. Cubesats might go even farther for innovation now. I'm Jennifer pulling innovation now is produced by the National Institute of aerospace through collaboration with NASA and is distributed by w.
