"The inflation conflation with wages. Absolutely. I mean, at the unit of account, regardless of where we might be with Bitcoin in the next 50 years, the unit account, even for most sort of basket case economies for primary spending, although I know people have done this with Bitcoin, it's still probably by and large as the U.S. dollar. Yeah. So seeing how the U.S. dollar might compare with other digital currencies with other assets with other service contracts is certainly certainly interesting. And that's a perennial question with Bitcoin too, isn't it? Because Bitcoin also is volatile. And over the long term that we might believe that it's not volatile if it becomes kind of the unit of account. Still, the base money won't be able to be expanded to any politician or central bankers win. So does that eventually create a deflationary interest towards everybody's sort of basis, like you said, no one likes to receive a pay cut. Correct. My thinking is long, long-term, I don't know if you thought about this, but long, long term, it might just be where the tech is doing everything and we'll just work less and we might get paid the same, but we're working less. That's a long-term question. That's a great way to maybe even end this podcast. That was what John Maynard Keynes wrote a hundred years ago. We talked about the future of my grandchildren. He's got this really great essay. I'm not a keynesian. I advocate for his policies, but he's a great writer. So he talks about how a hundred years from now, my children are going to be working. I think it's like four hours a week or something. If you visit to continue the trend and of course, we're working more today than we were a generation ago. And so that's not a technological challenge. That's a social challenge. Yes. Just like I said, we're social creatures, we are designed, we're built to work. And the nature of the work will change, but we're not going to have 30 hours of leisure. I don't think. You never know though. I'd like to see it. I don't know that I don't know what I would do with my time. 30 hours of leisure. There's always so much golf you can play and I'm terrible at golf. Well, it's still the marginal benefits of society could be in other areas that are just maybe seem less like work, but whether it's art or science or research to be something that you're still adding. It's a great really great insight you mentioned. I haven't thought about that, but I'm just saying another way to make sure I understand it. Because of the deflationary environment, the people being unwilling to lower their nominal pay, they're going to make adjustments on other margins and they're going to say, well, I will work less. I will spend more time with the family. You're saying that well, that's the only palatable way to do it, I guess. And I'm not saying I know that that will definitely happen, but that is the standard retort to Bitcoin's fixed supply of 21 million units is even just, as I mentioned earlier, even if you just account for something like population growth, presuming productivity stays exactly the same.

"Years before. Say something about that acceleration of growth that you see is happening in the 20th century. You know, I mean, it was British economist John Stuart mill, right? He was writing in 1871 about how all the industrial revolution had done was it had created a somewhat larger middle class and it had allowed manufacturers and the rich to earn greater fortunes, but that the overwhelming mass of humanity was still confined to the same life of drudgery and imprisonment. Then they had been before that they had been in before. And before all the way back into deep time. It was very clear by 1900 that things had changed. John Maynard Keynes writing in 1919 looks back and says starting in 1870, we entered economic El Dorado. And that now our chief task after World War I was figuring out why we tried to blow it up and try to get desperately back to what was good was going on after 1870. Fortunately, we eventually did, and so things rolled through up until our day. First of all, gives a sense of what happened in 1870 that brought all this about. There were some three driving forces in your book. Well, you know, everyone has an idea about just what it is that's made us as a civilization so wealthy that makes our economy so productive. And different people have different things and they all go back and some of them back even to say the year ten 70 when it turns out that the law applies to a German emperor standing in the snow outside of the castle that a law is and his tool, but instead it that the law provides to everybody.

"Weston from Bloomberg radio. Our very special contributor Larry summers of Harvard has stayed with us because we're going to bring in now Professor of economics from UC Berkeley. He's Brad to long. The author of a new book slouching toward utopia, an economic history of the 20th century. So professor, welcome for joining us. It's really good to have you here. I've read this fascinating and really sort of protein book. It's really quite a book. Let's set it up first because it's a history of the 20th century, but you don't necessarily define the 20th century as from 1900 to 2000. You start an 1870 unit, end up in 2010. Why? Well, the big thing that happens happens in 1870. Before 1870, the world's poor, and there's no prospect for the world being anything other than poor. After 1870, every single generation humanity's technical competence doubles. And then doubles again in the following generation. And such an enormous pace of technological advance raises the possibility for the first time of a world in which we can bake a sufficiently large economic pie for everyone to have enough. And that was nothing that humanity had ever seen before. One of the remarkable things Brad that you highlight is that it really wasn't very different to live in the United Kingdom in the 19th century than it had been to live in the ancient world 2000 years before. Say something about that acceleration of growth that you see is happening in the 20th century. You know, I mean, it was British economist John Stuart mill, right?

Cops Catch Murderer of Music Guru Clarence Avnant's 81-Year Old Wife
"Some of you speaking of crime have heard about the senseless murder of an 81 year old woman in her Beverly Hills home the other night that woman was, what's her first name? Natalie Avnet, Jacqueline admin. Jacqueline Avnet. The mother in law to Netflix's Ted sarandos. And the wife of the musical guru clarence Avnet, a man who is known as the black godfather and is admired by everyone from Bill Clinton to Snoop Dogg to Magic Johnson to Barack Obama to P diddy. You name it. There's a Netflix special called the black godfather all about this guy. So the other night, the Beverly Hills night was shattered by a home invasion on a very quiet street and a beautifully safe neighborhood called truesdale. There is no crime in truesdale, putting how this crime everywhere. The 80 year old couple had a private security guard on duty at the house, and yet still a burger smashed in the black sliding glass door. How brazen these motherfuckers now. And he fired off a round from his AR-15 that struck Jacqueline in the head and killed her instantly. At least I think it was the head. In a way, no one knows if it was aiming for her, but he hit it. It could have been an errant shot that just nailed it. Either way, it's fucking murder. Clarence advent was not hurt. Nor was the security guard. Good for him, he got out of the way. More on that in a minute. But now cops have caught the bad guy who killed Jacqueline Avnet. I hate the paper still say allegedly. Well, who do you think fucking killed? Do you think the husband shot has gone beyond her head? Oh my God, I can't stand these fucking journalists. The guy was caught in a backyard roughly an hour after the shooting and is caught on video, handcuffed to a wheelchair after being taken into custody. Why is he handcuffed to a wheelchair? Because this piece of shit surprised a convicted felon named Ariel Maynard, black dude, traveled from I like saying the color. It matters. Travel from Beverly Hills to the Hollywood Hills after the attack at the Afghan home to bang in another person's home. And he attempted to break into the home and nails, and in the process, this idiot shot himself in a foot with an AR-15.
'Organized Smash and Grab Robbery' Versus 'Looting'

"But at The Washington Post they have an opinion writer micheline Maynard who says Jessica used to it What's your problem For more than a century she says business experts have been trying to dial up the United States efficiency ever since Frederick Taylor published the principles of scientific management in 1911 companies have focused on doing things more quickly and raising consumers expectations as a result actually it's not since he wrote the book It's called the industrial revolution But Taylor's ideas didn't take into account the havoc a pandemic might do to supply chains What are you talking about There was a mass of deadly flu in 1917 The history of that is what is she talking about And how that would blunt what a few months ago seemed like a looming resumption of modern daily life's zippy pace Of course the country Americans expectations of speedy service and easy access to consumer products have been crushed like a styrofoam container in a trash compactor Wow what a turn of the phrase Time for some new more realistic expectations Fast food is less fast a huge flotilla container ships is stuck off shore in California waiting to unload Shoves normally stock with Halloween candy this time of year empty And I saw the other day at a target here in Ann Arbor Michigan The issues become so troublesome with alarming economic and political ramifications The White House is stepping in urging unions port operators and big consumer groups companies To work around the clock to unclog supply

"Just think of the person that you're not blowing their knee at some point. It fucking sucks straight up. It's horrible it's potentially season ending. Many people. don't come back from a unfortunately just from not taking the correct steps physical therapy or having surgery access whatever healthcare issues. You don't want to be in that boat and a lot of it is preventable to some degree. You can reduce injuries significantly by training. And if that means five six seven more seasons in your life i mean you would only be able to connect the dots going backwards. But how if you knew that training would set you up for more seasons less injury any new at for a fact you would do it ten out of ten times so i don't know i really like i think this is a great program and i think it will benefit a lot of people and honestly your a testament to a to right like i saw. I saw jujitsu match like last week like it looked like your knee was worked for a second right. And then you were like oh. I'm okay just icing it and this is actually do. This is a great. I'm glad that you brought this up. Because i wasn't going to bring it up dude i saw it and i was like that is so bad gnarliest thing of like i said. I skied competitively for twelve years. I've eaten shit hard. I've air hit face. First into the last six mobile's clark crossed the finish line. I've had some really gnarly crashes. No experience was gnarly her this past saturday. And if you want to know exactly what it looked like. If you go to my instant maynard and you look at the thursday jujitsu clip on the post and it's the third slide over you can see actually what happened to me so for those. That don't know really hijra jitsu works or or aren't gonna look. I'll just tell you my news in like no matter what. There's no way you're going to recreate this position on skis. So if you're wondering like oh well you know he trains. There goes his knee. Absolutely not i mean your foot has to be hooked around your other kneecap and there was external torque from my opponent plus i was pulling my knee in a really stupid way. This thing pop loud as a gun shot. I've never heard a noise like this in my life and usually in a tournament like there's something like that happens one opponents going to continue to attack the other because you're trying to win instantaneously my opponent back off. I haven't really seen that in clip before but you can see it in the video. He instantly stops. everyone stopped. I scoot away. And i just felt i was so worried like man. Here goes my jobs. I'm a trainer. There goes my ski. Season can't trainer jets anymore. There's no surfing the irony of lake. Here i am promoting this product jackass who tears his acl. But then i was able to sit.

"I'm also very old school in my training. And i don't think i've ever gone through training without having a notebook nearby. I just like to physically write stuff down. I always have and so. There's no shame doing that if you're running this thing off of your phone and your in the jamming training but you like making physical notes or references energy level notes. Whatever for yourself that's great you it and then just you know today that you're on and you can reference back but that's a great way to do kind of self accountability for sure. Yeah because like. If i have it just on my phone for me i will open a thousand other things you know. I will go there to just look at that one thing but i will end up. Opening instagram. started writing means my tax onto. I'll make memes on end up like you know emailing a sponsor all end up like respond. And then like i'm half in the workout right not even like i'm not focused on it right so i found as soon as i started printing it it worked for me and then i'll just go back in and i'll just like five questions. If i don't know what a work out is off top of my head then. I use it to my advantage and a lotta times. I'll just do it right before the workout. And i'll be like okay. I'll spend five minutes. And i'll just make sure i know what i'm doing and then i'll go and kind of run with it. I'm really excited for you to. I think it's going to be easier and easier to wrap your head around the motivation as you start to smell snow in the air like yeah. It's a taller for a lot of people to get a program going in the off season. When you're not being paid ski professionally it. Is you have to have inherent motivations for sure. But as we get into the september start of october i mean in california. It's cold at night. You know like we lit a fire last night for the first time. I know everyone not in california laughing at me. Writing making a fire in california sounds ridiculous but it's getting colder you can tell that winners right around the corner when you actually start to feel that it's like oh i i could get on a program now and these lasted six weeks like you can run an amazing program at six weeks. Really make some progress. And you put yourself right in the beginning november. I most mountains open around thanksgiving. So you do that. Plus a little mobility work. And i mean you could be dialed for this season and truly feel different than ever felt before. That's a that's a real thing anyone out there who's who has never trained to.

"I have to wake up at eight o'clock at the earliest a stretch. I would bet for most people that go to bed at two like. That's you know you're getting up early for that. So that's my issue. currently is time it is an issue normally but you know. I'm not an unmotivated person. I am very. I'm a very motivated persons. Just when you run out of time in the day and you're doing this like lethargic workout because you don't have that kind of energy it almost makes you feel like okay. Should i even be doing the workout right. But like at the end of the. I still feel right exactly. That's my point. Is i still feel good. That i did it. I just wish that there was a way to. I don't know at five hours to the day at an hour of the day. So okay so if you know one that time is your biggest limiting factor as again. I'm sure the time's going to be a big limiting factor for a lot of people out there whereas one place in your week from monday to sunday that you feel like you control the time for me. it's my mornings okay. And how many mornings are available to be really like ironed out your schedule. If i had a good schedule i would say. I have two three mornings a week. That are that. I can actually like fully control where i'm at so this is a really important part and i hope people listening. Think about this. gonna be a range of life. What is your actual minimum frequency. And then you're kind of ballpark like in my perfect world frequency. Even what you said right like i think maybe two days but probably three three three is clearly like in your best week when you're stoked near feeling energy's high. You're gonna get three days. Don't even worry about that. Always go to the minimum frequency because if you find consistency doing the least amount you can always build on the confidence of execution. But if you're going for more and you get less it's always gonna be defeating no matter what. Yeah so start with. today's right. You said one you can control your mornings more than other parts of the day. So i'll start there two to three days. We're going to eliminate the three so we'll keep it down so of these two mornings you're trying to get in. Where do you feel like you have the most control again monday to sunday mornings typically are less intense than others.

"With the euro. Let's make it so you have some payment. processing issues. sounds the platforms are able to use a relatively consolidated. Talk to me about how you're analyzing the performance of each marketer using the same kpi's for each campaign are you evaluating the performance of market the same way. That's she's actually one of the things. I think he's ready to gordon. You can with some platform. Say particularly as i say social platforms. You can absolutely build campaign centrally but two then expects the same. Kpi's and particularly the campaign. The same metrics isn't going to happen from country to country so if you look european countries the response rates lower than states A lot of marketing activities. I'm that's partly due to sort of this european restaurants to shed either so lead generation can actually be quite difficult and we see all the clients for example running email marketing campaigns where they'll get very different results from country to country not because the campaigns federal were h. country but primarily because individual engineers in different countries a more willing less willing to share that data interesting so at the end of the day when you're evaluating what countries you should be expanding into. How do you know what are the countries where you're going to see positive performance. And how do you vet the efficacy of your marketing. It seems like that's a big risk of saying. Hey we're going to go into france and spain because there is a cluster of marketing executives with the example that we used before but as it turns out. The conversion rates are terrible that market. How do you validate those conversion rates before you spend all the time to international as your product but you discount. It's not always possible to know how successful any product will be anyone different country so i think you've got to all the research you've got to lay the plans you've got to understand what customer acquisition costs. For example in your business you could afford to remain profitable and accept the actually that will vary from country to country on some countries may be more profitable than others but the key is to make sure you start because your efforts on the countries where you can make more money and i think interestingly what i have more from my european pods is that america is the toughest market to crack rather than being a market where the language is different. Or the coaches right different. Actually it seems like it's not just your big different from america but also europeans find america. Pretty tough to yeah. I'm sure it works. Both ways shirt works multiple different ways. It's not just a binary. Us and the rest of the world but think about entering the chinese market obviously going to be incredibly challenging multiple different languages currencies culture. Is there a way to mitigate some of the risk when you're thinking about launching into a new market do you test your marketing channels without the product. Actually being there to understand what your response rates are can you do. A soft version of translation and mitigate some of the cost. What are some of the ways. Understand whether you're new market is going to be successful before you invest time capital and resources into international. Is it yeah absolutely. I think that's a really good approaches to think about minimizing the investment required to actually guns do the initial tests so in your example of the sas company. Absolutely you know some of the things. I would probably be thinking about is. Can we do a test launch without any translation so the executives that we'd be targeting that percents those would be happy to interact with the platform in english. Is that enough to give us useful test results. So it's finding those ways. Co launch cost is very important. Typically when you've got a physical products people enter market using distributors resellers. And that's a very classic way to minimize the cost because you can then stop building. Customer base with minimal investment and that will allow you to then gain the momentum that will then fund out me a much bigger pushing that market. So i think there's lots of ways you can actually reduce the risk by going in slow conducting trials and then once she say the things are working starting to scale out and sunday digital marketing. Makes it very easy to do. I think that's an important part to understand that there are potentially established companies in other markets. That you can partner with and it's not just about extending your existing product and having to rebuild everything and remark and understand the culture but there are firms and services that are specialized in international marketing. Like the napier group for example in the bbc tech center and there's also other companies that you can partner with to try to use your services as a product extension of their existing brand at the end of the day internationalization. Create a huge opportunity. When you're looking to develop extend but it also comes with a certain amount of uncertainty risk and obviously can be very capital intensive.

Creating a Marketing Strategy for Extending Your Business Internationally
"Let's walk through what you think. The right strategy is when you're thinking about extending your business outside of your current territory into new markets. What's the playbook for launching a new product line. A new country was a great question bed because we not only help. Climb sloan new countries but obviously nation state where was looking to expand out since we what we've clients from across europe as well as constant state senator was say we have bring the far east so the real challenge first of all is to understand way. Your biggest opportunity is the truth. Is that launching. Internationally is quite time. Consuming can be quite expensive. So you really want to. Because you're aware. The opportunity is an understanding that from your product or service to me is the first challenge this ways. You can do that in terms of research but a lot of it depends on new understanding who your customers are. I meant being identify in which countries like exist. let's us a case study or a hypothetical. Let sam running a sast business for us on helping corporate executives move from an executive role to a consulting practice and it's available here in the united states. I'm thinking about launching in europe. Talked me about how you'd think about positioning that product. And what are the markets. That i should select. So that's a great idea. Instead of launching that internationally because see a lot of countries have executives that had not made that transition in consulting. I think assess thing you really need to think about is like more rich so even if your working with executives who have good english as a second language it's still going to be harder to sell to countries where the primary language is english. So it's me one of the challenges of the sas business is always about whether localized with language. Or whether you're going to launch just in english that doesn't rule out in launch. Levers apple jam neil steinberg france but it means you need to think slightly differently about how you approach that
Breaking Down U.S. Spending During The Pandemic
"The trillions of dollars that the biden administration wants to pump into the economy signal. The return of big government. I put this question to zachary carter. Who wrote a book called the price of peace. It's about the economist. John maynard keynes and the ideas that underpin our current understanding of what government's responsibility is in a time of crisis. Carter told me it's not really about big government versus small government anymore. It's about how the money is spent. There's always been at least over the last seventy five years if fairly large government but since the nineteen nineties there has been a different consensus about how we should organized that government with democrats moving closer to sort of the reagan conservative republican understanding about how how the state should be organized. And i think president. Biden's been pretty clear about wanting to turn away from that. He's hanging portrait. Fdr in the oval office. That's something new. So i think the size of the government is sort of a rhetorical issue. The real shift here is where the focus of that. Government is is directed.
Fisher Vs. Keynes: Investing Tragedy And Triumph
"Irving fisher was born in eighteen sixty seven in the town of saugerties. New york got his phd economics from yale in eighteen ninety one and for most of his adult life he enjoyed this almost unparalleled streak of success. Yeah not just as a great economist but also as an entrepreneur and investor. Tim harford is the author of the data detective. A new book that includes a chapter about irving fisher. He was the basically the inventor of what we now call the rolodex card filing system. That made him a multimillionaire. He was a diet and fitness expert. He published a book called how to live which was the freakonomics of its day. Only sold five hundred thousand copies. He set up the life extension institute. He was a campaigner on prohibition. He was a vegetarian. Assist an astonishing a prolific campaigner and thinker and he made a lot of money in the markets for a while as the stock market in the nineteen twenties was going up and up fisher was investing more and more money into it in fact even though he was already investing a ton of his own money he was also borrowing even more money to invest in stocks so that he could boost his returns fisher was just supremely confident about his forecast that the market would keep going up confident both in his own intelligence and also in the possibility of using data and statistics to predict the future. So that's where irving fisher was right before the crash of nineteen twenty. Nine john maynard. Keynes the other. Great economists of the era got there a little differently. Canes was definitely already considered one of the great economic minds of the time and just like irving fischer canes knew. He was the smartest guy in every room. He walked into same. Yeah me too something. We all share with gains right. But unlike irving fisher john maynard. Keynes had gotten some things wrong. By that point he had been humbled by the market before he had an early investment fund immediately after the first world war that just went went bankrupt and it was fine canes raise more money went back into the market. Got everyone's cashback. Everyone lived happily ever after but he had that experience going. Oh yeah. I thought i was smart on the market. Maybe i'm not smart on the market when the crash of one thousand nine hundred nine arrive. The stock market collapsed more than twenty percent in two days and within three years it had fallen more than eighty nine percent from where it was before the crash. Both and john maynard. Keynes lost a lot of money on their investments in the crash but there is a huge difference in how they responded so after the crash fisher kept doubling down on the same investments. He even kept borrowing money to invest in the same. Losing stocks for example fisher owned stock in a company called remington rand and right before the crash remington rand stock was at fifty eight dollars share but after the crash of two three months it was twenty eight dollars. A share and fisher was borrowing money and buying more shares at twenty eight dollars for years into the crash. It was one dollars a share. That is how to be a millionaire. Lose everything maybe fisher believed that his precious data just could not be wrong or that he could not be wrong or that. His self worth was tied up in this idea that he was right. Whatever the case he couldn't change his mind and he lost everything. Canes was different kane street at his failures as a chance to learn a chance to improve his process up to the crash he'd been investing based on his ability to predict the ups and downs of the whole economy. But after the crash he decided that that was just too hard to unknowable so he changed his strategy to investing in companies that he believed had good management and he thought would go up over time no matter what the overall economy was doing. Canes made a fortune for himself and for the endowment of king's college us money he was managing one of the things he said when he was trying to raise money from his own father was win or lose. This high stakes gaming amuses me. That's that's just an amazing linked to say when you're trying to persuade someone to give you money and yet in the end it helps because he just didn't take it so personally for the past few decades. A psychologist named philip tat. Lock has studied the behaviors that lead to better forecasting being very precise predictions constantly. Checking to see if your forecasts or proving true and updating your forecast if they are not true all of these make you a better forecaster. But tim says if he had to summarize. All of this research on a bumper sticker. Full cost is better when they recognized. They might be wrong and they are asking themselves. What am i missing. What perspective having tie considered. Who haven't i talked to that sort of almost paranoid suspicion that you might have messed up. And the willingness to change your mind that leads to much better forecasting you know it sounds so obvious. Just be able to change your mind and yet in practice. People really struggle to change their minds especially about their deeply held beliefs. That irving fisher could not change his mind and john maynard. Keynes could ended up making all the difference in how they lived the rest of their lives a few months after the second world war at fissuring canes both died fisher was alone and nearly bankrupt hitting bailed out by his millionaire sister-in-law and he'd completely lost his reputation as a result of his failed forecast. It's such a tragic end to a great career. Canes died a millionaire the most famous and celebrated economists on the planet and there is a quote that sometimes gets attributed to canes that. Tim also likes to remember him by. He probably never said it but he lifted which is when the facts change. I change my

Top 10 Haunted Crime Scenes
"Starting off our list of haunted crime scenes is the Eden Brown estate on the Caribbean island of Nevis. There're couple versions of this story and they all take place before a wedding. Of course, they do essentially the groom and the best man they get into a fight they pull out their vessels and they kill each other. Oh but they're not the ghosts of the Brown. Estate that would be the bride who still roams the estate and a long white gown waiting for her wedding day. Of course, she is the. Are. They're always brides dressed in their wedding clothes just waiting for their wedding day at these places and it's always really sad because i. they're also always like crying or like they look very like shock they've always been jilted. Yeah. It's not fair. No I. Don't like while in eighteen, twenty, two, this bride Julia. Huggins was set to marry Walter Maynard, his best dude John Huggins was going to be the best man but all was not well of course, there wasn't everyone died. Wheeler Alina a fight was a bruin. So there's like multiple stories about what actually happened and since the story was largely spread by tourism, they all vary a little bit. I feel like the best things in the worst things are always spread by doors. One hundred percent we can account for a lot with tourism well, like I said, there's a few theories. The first is that the grew was having an affair and the best man found out that was his sister. So he was like I'm upset and then the groom was like you are Eliah I think that was it that was it, but there's also some mortgage bonds. Okay. The next one is that the best man like I said was the bride's brother and the groom discovered that they were hooking up with each other on the low, and obviously he went a little bananas about that Allah incest a lot incest. So S- big ill. Another theory we've got another one says that the bride's father now, that's the dad this time was tried for mistreating his sleeves and this was in the eighteen hundred. So you know that was real bad. That was a sharp left turn sharp left. The groom having an affair. Yeah. That's like the classic in the best man is being a good dude and killed them died hero. It's a pretty good wrong com movie actually I picked up I like that one while historians think the real story dates back to a historical rivalry between the maynard and the huggins families the plantation itself dates back to the Century and it was at that time a beautiful property decorated with international furnishings from Africa and China. But today it's in ruins. Really. Sad. But sad torres claim to hear whales of a crying bride enslaves. ooh, and Julia is sometimes spotted in her wedding gown only during the full moon I don't hate that this is in ruin. Now what's meant to be will be yeah don't go there. It's terrible place. Nine. At number nine this week is leap castle and love this one according to ancient legends. Leap Castle is built on an ancient Druid holy site. ooh while we don't know if the druids used the land for human sacrifice, we do know that once the castle was built it did witness hundreds of murders I feel like that's just like what castles do. Yeah. Any good castle worth. Its name seen offend learning the hundreds of murders. You can't be a castle. You know it's a qualification. The best part of this place is that it's named after a little earl leap off a nearby cliff by an ancient Irish abandoned chieftain. ooh. Yeah. He jumped as a sign of bravery to win clan leadership from his brother later, it was taken over by the bloody carols. I want to be friends with them because you definitely don't want to be their enemy. Yeah. You don't want to be an enemy of the bloody. Oh Carols No. Well, they were known for throwing Red Wedding s dinner parties and just straight up killing their guests like the saddest episode of Game Fern. So to picture that was all is affecting me R.I.P Robb stark. Talk. About number be over it. Well, this was way back in the fifteen hundreds. So the it is pretty game of thrones Ian. Yeah. So the carols, this is one of my favorite things they built an uber yet a what an yet. and. What would happen was victims would fall through a trap door into this. googly. It in the remains of one hundred fifty people were found during a nineteen twenties renovation. So I think we have three major ghosts that we want to chat about really quick. Hit me up.

Has a red cloth over her face and she just screams twice at you and then leaves that would change you as a person I think like to which say I leave I leave the Milky Way Galaxy. If that happened to me I would walk like five hundred miles and then I'd walk five hundred more which I would be so far. That's terrifying to me. No. Thanks. So we don't love that will in the sixteen hundreds after all that crazy. Oh, Carol business it changed hands and it went to Jonathan Darby who fell in love with an old carol daughter.

The other reports of things happening are doorbells ring with no one their tools move around without being touched There's like sounds of furniture moving people screaming, and then a carpenter that was working on the property once just left and he was like I'm never coming back to work because he walked five hundred miles and then five hundred more leap castle everybody.
A Bad Day IN Austin
"Thursday. May Eighteenth. Nineteen. Seventy. Austin Texas. It's just after midnight when twenty six year old patrolman. Ralph NATO. Stopped. A Red Nineteen, sixty, six Mustang. On East Live Oak Street. Near Travis Heights Boulevard. The officer called in a code for routine traffic violation check. The officer approached the vehicle. The driver was a young woman. Sheila Maynard. Sitting. Shotgun was a white male in his late twenties. The officer obtained their names and information and walked back to his patrol car. Officer abloh NATO wrote Michener a ticket for driving without a license Iran a radio check on the passenger David. Lee Pow. The check came back the POW twenty seven years of age was a wanted man. Wanted for some minor infractions, misdemeanor theft, and too hot check charges. Abloh NATO. Got Out of his patrol car. And once again, he approached the vehicle, the officer was hit with automatic gunfire coming from the vehicle in front of him. The shots. Knocked out the rear window of the Mustang. The officer was hit several times in the arm and chest. His bulletproof vest that he was wearing, which was standard procedure for Austin patrolman and seventy eight. was really no match for the high powered gunfire. abloh. NATO went. down. The Mustang drove off. Somehow. abloh. NATO was able to send out a distress call. Austin PD officers rushed to the scene. Officer Joe Villegas spotted the sixty six Mustang about two blocks away. In the parking lot of the, Travis Park Apartments. Bogus pushed the pedal to the floor approaching the park vehicle at a high rate of speed. As he got closer. Shots were fired coming from the Mustang. Villegas was able to avoid being hit. He slammed on the brakes and returned fire. Then David Lee POW still in the passenger seat. pulled. The pin from a hand grenade and tossed it at Villegas thankfully, if failed to explode. Then, the woman. Sheila. Maynard. Jumped out of the vehicle with their hands raised high screaming at the officer. She surrendered. POW, flung open the passenger door and ran for the woods. By now. swelled. Thirty. AM. Officer, Ralph Abloh NATO. was rushed to the nearest hospital. Officer Abloh NATO died shortly after arrival. About twenty-five police in at least two armed security officers surrounded the woods. which was estimated to be a mile long and half a mile wide. They stopped dozens of cars and pedestrians. They waited and waited. But David Powell never came out. Just after six am. And we decided that six police to canine officers would enter the woods and go in there and get POW. The remaining police were to maintain the perimeter. They wanted only a small amount of police officers to enter the woods to minimize the risk. They decided that no one else was to enter. They needed a set number of officers only. That way. If they saw any movement at all, they would know immediately, it was not a fellow officer. In other words, they were prepared to shoot on sight. The two dogs and six officers entered the woods with flak jackets and loaded shotguns. To armed security guards who shifts ended hours ago but decided to stay and assist the police in any way they could. Now. Decided, it was time to call it a night and let the police do their jobs. Guards Charles Howard. Gary Nelson. We're now near Travis high. When they spotted movement. The two guards with pistols drawn move slowly toward something they saw moving in the bushes. A man crouch down trying to conceal himself. At a distance of about three feet, one of the guards a stern voice instructed the man to come out. Before standing up. The man said, loudly, his voice shaking I'm not going to do anything. And he slowly emerged from the bushes. The guards handcuffed him and called the police.
[AI Futures] Steps Towards International AI Governance - with Futurist David Wood
"So David where I thought we'd start off here is around this broad topic of the governance of artificial intelligence I. think that there's concerns about the near-term around security privacy. There's longer term concerns about becoming more powerful people are thinking about should there be just regional surveys of governing technologies or or is it prudent to really think about global governance GM stance or way that you like to frame that problem? I'm all in favor of some local experimentation I. Think it's appropriate to have some things out to not obvious in advance that we can. Off. The Bat first time get a complete system of regulation. Correct. So I'm in favor of different parts of the globe whether it's the EU whether it's America whether it's China experimenting with a view to. Seeing which rules make more sense which rules viable. However, it has to be a stepping stone to watson envisioned global agreement because people will not surely be loath to commit themselves to that restrictions nationally locally if they perceive thought competition is going to be able to walk without these restrictions and get potential advantage. So we have to move into coast to international agreements to. Many people people are. Fearful of the any prospect of global government they feel that it's going to be d'italia -tarian or inch to wants the. Taliban. But what I will say is that we already have examples of global governance of various things. We have a sports organizations which managed to reach agreement on how the soccer football. World Cup is played. The Olympics Organization makes lots of agreements even though the constituent. Nations have lots of different political viewpoints and lots of different makeup. So there are examples of how useful agreements can be reached even between the ideological opponents. That's what we have to build on. I. Like the idea of local experimentation. It does indeed feel very hard to take a directly to the top okay world. Here's the page we're going to be on in terms of how data's treated or what is allowed to do or not allowed to do that Cetera. How do you see that playing out in terms of? Relative, near-term thinking about obviously the EU is they have their GDP are rules that are coming out. You see new sort of waves of these rules emerging in different countries than some observation by the global community as to how are they shaking out their implications for private sector innovation whether implications for human rights where implications elsewhere and then being able to use those as the experiments to build something more global. Exactly, right and the GDP aw in the EU is very important case point most people of mixed views about the actual implementation we often think, wow, this is clunky. This is A. This is poorly done on the the hind. We have sympathy towards what the rules are trying to do, and we say, yes, it is appropriate. Thought is the right to have an explanation. It's appropriate for people to understand how the data's being used and so on. So we can see that the intent is Goud. If maybe not. One hundred percent in agreement, but it's a starting point, but it is not something that's done once and then finished on the contrary. It's part of what should be an ongoing sequence my lendings in the Business World I spent twenty five years in the mobile technology and smartphones industry that was an industry in which there was a great deal of rapid change, their surprises of a new entrance of disappointments of things going wrong and. Then things going overwhelmingly right. My key lesson from all of that is the importance of agility the flexibility. Of course, you can set the overall long term direction, but you must stay get to that overall target in stages interim as moll steps, a new must be ready to your plan based on what you have lent in what new things become clear that were less clear L. ear on that face so we will get their stage-by-stage. I think politics the world of politics often seems almost like a domain were that innovation where in the private sector let's say is rampant stood to be the only game town isn't the only real game in town in politics to some degree because experimenting with fifty counties in Wisconsin, about how we're going to manage healthcare bills is really hard to do and seems somewhat viable as opposed to. Some big change for the whole state of the whole country and it just Kinda. Gets rolled out. Is there a way to sort foster a greater degree of this experimentation because it feels like at least historically, there have been limits to seeing politics as part of this iteration learning it's more of just clunking inevitability. It's not seen as maybe the global community is not look to aggregate policy as a way for us all to learn for us all to move forward. So ready to encourage that mindset in that learning like you saw in the private sector. One problem with politics is people really like to admit that they will wrong stu really like to have something a defied with them as being a failure whereas in business more people are willing to shrug and say, yes, dot to didn't walk as I expected and you know what analogy I'm wiser. And Business we talk about failing smart failing fast and feeling forward and it sounds like buzzwords. But all three of these things means something particular failing forward in particular means that you don't try and move on quickly and did deny the you ever were associated with such an experiment you say, well, here's what you've learned from it and you use that as a starting point for the next round of experiments but they politicians like to present themselves and we often as voters like to see all politicians is A. Superhuman Infallible Vegas and we need to have a much more human understanding of how politics works. So that's one thing that will help. A second thing that will help is more of a coalition that mentality rather than two different groups WanNa. The right and the other the laughed the Republicans at the Democrats or whatever politics is in my view much healthier when there are multiple different parties involved and where it's quite easy for people to move from one party to another as their owner. Viewpoint changes evolves over the time. So sadly, when two different blocks very adversarial. Limits the ability to have more meaningful and useful discussion. It pushes into their role in mental state as well. It puts into this tribal frame in which we often don't want to say something we think is true because it might be embarrassing for offsides. So instead, we latch onto something that makes the other side look stupid even though we may not fully believe it. So it's a very bad way of having a proper. Discussion. So sometimes I talk about we need more than just democracy. We need a super democracy. We need to learn how to have these discussions in a way that We're happy to admit that we've been wrong with hoppy to admit we've changed our mind after all to court the Economist John Maynard Keynes though he may not actually have said this when the exchange I changed my mind, the
Seattle Police Break Up CHOP Area Ahead Of Budget Meeting
"Of of violent violent incidents incidents in in the the Capitol Capitol Hill Hill protest protest zone. zone. Led Led to to Seattle Seattle Mayor Mayor Jenny Jenny Durkan Durkan this this morning morning to to order order police police to break up the protest. Let's get the latest live from the scene. Here's Cuomo's Corwin. Hey, KD. And just moments ago, police chief Carmen Best told US jerk and gave her the order to sweep out shop early this morning Thiss order and our police response. Comes after weeks of violence in and around the capital Hill occupied protest zone, including multiple shootings, resulting in many injuries and two deaths. Death of two teenagers at this point we've had at least 13 arrest. Now the eviction itself began just after five this morning citizen journalists, Omari Salisbury was on hand. He described it to me to say, declared illegal assembly and gave order this first. For about 10 minutes. They sat there asking people to move. The police started moving five foot at a time. You know, like we see a lot here, the move back, move back. Now there were raised voices. Otherwise, the eviction of chop was largely peaceful. Now I have heard unconfirmed reports that at one point pepper spray was deployed, perhaps even a rubber bullet fired. I don't know that for sure. That's what the witnesses told me. So we'll see what happens next. We have our upcoming later this morning a list of demands from protestors What they want to see happen next. It's possible that this entire group if they don't return to chop, they moved this protest elsewhere in the city Live on Capitol Hill, Corwin Hate almost Matt Markovich has been covering the police response to all of this since it began last month, and we asked him this morning why he thinks that police department decided to finally move him Today. Today is a very important day for the defunding of the Seattle Police Department. The Budget committee is going to meet this afternoon is the third session about how did to fund the Police Department. They look at a $300 million deficit for the budget, so there might be some political overtones here about the timing of why it happened today because of discussions the City Council is going to have this afternoon that just one idea why the timing of it, protesters on Capitol Hill say recent violence within it, shop would have happened. Even if chop didn't exist. It's not happening here, it would have happened elsewhere. This just kind of the epicenter of where people are coming to this point, right? That's protester Tafari Maynard. Two teenagers were shot to death within shop over the past 12 days, including a 16 year old boy who died Monday. Protesters say they'll present an updated list of demands later today,

Coronavirus recession is "likely," economist says
"What's the damage to the economy that we've suffered so far but it's primarily from the attempts to fight the virus rather than the ravages of the virus itself which includes kind of shutting down a lot thanks for in teens planned shutdowns you know businesses closing transportation and so on all those things are devastating global GDP and so the question is and you said the question twenty twenty is how are we collectively meaning the room the human race going to manage to fight off the virus as we must without destroying everything else we care about the economy our family lives and so on and it one of the interesting things about this economic moment and you quote mark Zandi well known guy over at moody's chief economist he says we could be moving from a self reinforcing positive cycle to a self reinforcing negative cycle and that seems to be such a key insight here because what is a recession recession is when you lose faith in the future and you don't invest for the future of your business you don't buy if you're a consumer you hunker down and that very active hunkering down which is trying to protect you from the recession itself can trigger the recession because what works for one family or one company doesn't work collectively when everybody tries to do what it wants is what John Maynard Keynes called the paradox of

UAW's Strike Against GM Brings To Mind Last Century's Labor Battles
"This message comes from NPR sponsor xfinity. Some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like Xfinity X. by get get fast speeds even when everyone is online working to make WIFI simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply there was a time when a strike at GM sent shockwaves throughout the US economy but talks aimed at ending an ongoing strike are expected to continue into the weekend and it's clear neither the company nor the United Auto Workers Union are as powerful as they once were. Here's NPR's Scott horsely. Americans woke up this week to something. We don't see that often anymore anymore. Workers at a Major Industrial Company walking picket line a strike against General Motors is already taking a toll on the country's largest automaker nearly fifty thousand the united auto workers striking against General Motors this a number of workers already on the picket line here the GM's vehicles are bigger than ever strikes have gotten smaller the company's unionized workforce has shrunk by about ninety percent from its peak in the nineteen seventies Micheline Maynard who covered autos and manufacturing actioning for NPR and the New York Times says the UAW's actually been supplementing its picket lines with workers from other companies. It is being portrayed as let's help our brothers and sisters sisters at General Motors but it wasn't necessary ten or fifteen years ago and it was a very different story during General Motors Heyday Chevrolet quality mass production demands people thousands of people for most of the company's history. Those people were unionized labor expert. Harley shaken of UC Berkley says General Motors and the UAW practically grew up together in nineteen fifty they signed the Treaty of Detroit a five year deal that gave workers annual pay raises and agenda pension it was the UAW and General Motors at the bargaining table that brought millions of Americans into the middle class and that fueled a growing economy and a broader prosperity be you in your role America in the Nineteen Fifties General Motors was riding high and so were Ford and Chrysler the Big Three controlled ninety percent of the auto the market Japan and Germany were still recovering from the war America had it all seemed and Union President Walter Reuther insisted workers get their share. We believe this is the most effective way to expand purchasing power and purchasing power is the key to the economic future of the American economy that strong bargaining power our continued through nineteen seventy when GM workers staged another headline grabbing strike good evening General Motors the united auto workers have announced tentative agreement on a new new three year contract that contract included pay raises totaling nearly twenty percent but the good times we're about to give way to a decade of Malays Inflation Asian soared in the nineteen seventies and so did the price of gasoline. US auto makers struggled to keep up with changing tastes General Motors Nineteen seventy-five Chevrolet Enderle Nova. There may never be a better time to move to a GM compaq demand for combat cars created an opening that foreign carmakers were quick to exploit the the beginning of the concessions era maynard who wrote the book the end of Detroit says foreign carmakers Toyota Honda Volkswagen began opening their own factories here in the US those companies would come in and build factories and employ Americans and then those Americans would join the uaw they didn't GM in the a union did get a reprieve in the nineties when gas prices fell and sales of pickup trucks SUV's took off but the prophets from those big vehicles masked a lot of rotten management and managers often struggled with a complacent and unyielding unit when the recession hit just over a decade ago the once-mighty General Motors was forced into bankruptcy only rescue from the federal government saved GM and Chrysler from going under the collapse of these companies would have been devastating for countless Americans and done enormous damage to our common in return for its help the Obama administration demanded big concessions from both the companies and the Union including a new a two tiered wage scale that allowed GM pay new workers less shaken says it was a bitter pill that was an incredibly grim moment went for the U. A. W. But their central priority was to ensure that the Detroit automaker survived that wasn't a given general. Oh Motors did survive and after years of sacrifice. The Union now wants a bigger piece of its profits which topped eight billion dollars last year. GM is a much diminished finished company though its market share has tumbled from a high of fifty percent to less than sixteen percent union power suffered a similar decline. GM has also invested heavily in Mexico where workers make a fraction of what they do here that raises a question that Walter Reuther might have asked with fewer and fewer well-paid American workers.

Mercedes Benz is going carbon neutral
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society transition to a low-carbon economy, Bank of America, NA, member FDIC. Ben's going carbon neutral. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hunter. This is climate cast German automaker Mercedes Benz is the latest to make the move toward a carbon neutral auto fleet. The automaker pledges to change factories and vehicles to go carbon neutral by twenty thirty nine but how does a high performance automaker shift to a climate friendly fleet in just twenty years, I asked transportation analyst Mickey Mainur the business incentive for Mercedes. Is that Europe obviously there German based company is far far ahead of the rest of the world in getting serious about climate change. And so all companies, no matter whether it's McDonald's or Mercedes are under pressure to become more compliant. Mickey it looks like a pretty aggressive plan by Mercedes Benz by twenty thirty the German manufacturer aims to have electric and hybrid models. Comprise, half or more of total car sales is that real? Mystic in your eyes, a lot can happen in ten years. I mean, if you think back ten years, tesla was just in its infancy, and I remember in Chicago, that a tesla dealer popped up around twenty ten or twenty eleven and just how unusual that seemed and now they're tesla dealers in all parts of the United States, Europe, Canada Asia show. Ten years sounds like a long time, but it's too product cycles in the auto industry. And while you don't see massive change in one product cycle, you can see significant change into product cycles. It looks like part of the strategy for Mercedes is to use renewable energy to power some of their manufacturing plants is that part of the goal to get them to that carbon neutral designation. Yes. It's a two-part strategy. So it's the vehicle strategy at what comes out of the manufacturing plants. And then it's also the way those manufacturing plants are deployed, I've been in most of Mercedes. Major operations in Germany, and in Alabama, and in the last couple of years, there's really been a focus on leaning. Everything down fewer people less electricity. Less packaging coming in with the parts. It's going to take a lot of work. A lot of effort for these factories in Europe to become more climate neutral or carbon-neutral, excuse me, because they're big, and some of them are old even though they've been refreshing. And so I think for me I'm a manufacturing geek and I find this just as interesting as the vehicle side of it. I mean, if they truly can transform those factories, it's going to say a lot to the rest of the auto industry, author journalist educator and transportation analysts Mickey Maynard, thanks for your perspective today. It's my pleasure. Thanks for having me. Eric berger. I live in the Dayton's bluff neighborhood has Saint Paul. I'm an architectural, CAD drafter by day and a former BMW master technician, actually got in Devi ownership because the fastest cars out there and the efficiencies, nice bonus might decision to get an V kind of started with my actually buying a gasoline, Fiat, five hundred when they came to the country in two thousand twelve and then it was actually gonna upgrade to the faster one, but then actually found that Fiat Chrysler mayday compliance vehicle in the state of California, the five hundred electric and it was actually faster than the gas one that I was going to upgrade to. So I decided why not just put electrical service and my hundred and ten year old houses garage, which it had never had before. So I had the ability to get a fast charger, I own a fleet of eleven or twelve gas cars to in the fact that I show up anywhere, really in a little electric Italian car. They're like, what doesn't make any sense? But once people drive it because I tossed the keys on this thing to anyone. I've singlehandedly had three of my friends go out and buy this. Exact vehicle and a lot of others of Baden, tesla model threes. One bottle leaf yet really opens people's eyes are like, wow. There really isn't a compromise here. If you have x y and z in your life, it's not a compromise. There's really never a time where I can't plan around the cars range. So the electric car why I got into mainly because it was the fastest available in that body. But then it turned into the more conventional decision which I want to be kind of environment. Now, I'm fully on board with the whole electric vehicle movement and then green stuff. That's fine at cast. I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hunter.
Focus To Electric Vehicle Market Drives Changes At GM
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from internet essentials from Comcast. Connecting more than six million low income people to low cost high speed internet at home. So students are ready for homework class graduation and more. Now, they're ready for anything. General Motors is planning to shudder five plants in North America and lay off thousands of workers one of the plants is in Warren, Ohio. And we spoke with that town's mayor William Franklin one thing about our community. Fortunately, and unfortunately, as we've been down this road before understand the GM had went from three ships to two shifts the one shift and as of Monday, they announced the closing the plant now GM says they have to get more lean to prepare for the next economic downturn. And also become more nimble in a changing transportation industry. Micheline Maynard has witnessed the rises and falls of GM for decades. She's a longtime auto reporter and she joins us. Now. Mickey good morning. I guess just listening to the voice of that. Mayors. Reminder of how important this company in this brand can beat a community. That's right in the old days. General Motors was known as mother Motors. You went to work at General Motors, maybe out of high school, maybe even in high school and took care of you for the rest of your life until retirement. Well, does the company have a valid argument here about why these cuts are necessary. Well, absolutely. And a lot of us who covered the auto bailout ten years ago now wondered if the cuts that took place back then were deep enough. It was always a feeling that there might have to be another set of cuts before General Motors was ready for the future. But even so these did come as a surprise. So what is changing in the industry that is forcing this? And why might it be a surprise? If if these trends have been there for some time. Well, I think the car makers have successfully been selling big SUV's pickup trucks and Witter called crossover vehicles and their profitability is. So high and they cleaned up lots of debt in the auto bailout at General Motors and Chrysler that people thought everything was fine. But underneath the surface. We're seeing kind of an attitude changed towards car ownership the youngest consumers put off getting their driver's licenses. They have lots of student debt they're putting off buying new vehicles. These are the people you see on scooters and skateboards, and my share those are people that the companies look at that. And they just see potential customers who are not driving cars at the moment. Ex. Well, not not only driving, but not owning. And that's the big issue for them. So I think that they've been trying to do is sort of front-load everybody they can into pick-up sinister vis which are really high profit vehicles. And then, you know, wait for the future to come.
