Amazon Workers’ Union Drive Reaches Far Beyond Alabama

"This hour we are talking about the union drive amongst amazon warehouse employees in bessemer alabama and. Why people in the world of labor and In modern american business are paying very close. Attention to how workers in alabama might vote As it could change a lot given the size of amazon the corporation now amazon is so big that we're kind of also informally launching a series. Hear about all the ways in which amazon is changing all of our lives so focusing on labor here today. if there's an area of life that you think amazon is changing and you'd like us focus on You know hop on to social media. Twitter facebook at on point radio and let us know what you'd like to us to look into or you can also give us a call at six one seven three five three zero six eight three looking for your ideas on areas of life that you want to learn more about that amazon. Might be changing. I'm joined today by steven. Greenhouse he's labor and workplace journalist author of beaten down worked up the past present and future of american labor karen weiss is also with. She's a new york. Times correspondent covering amazon microsoft and the pacific northwest's tech scene. She's with us from seattle. Now karen we heard from michael foster the union organizer there before the break. I wanted to ask you more about the the one of the fundamental things. He talked about which was worker. Dignity pay is one thing but worker dignities another and i think amazon's got a pretty long list of Of incidents if i can call it that where does lead one to questions of how they view or how much they the importance they have of warehouse. Worker dignity right there was they. Fires warehouse workers who spoke out about insufficient safety protocols regarding regarding covert in two thousand and twenty We've heard we've read stories. Maybe you've even written them caring about like response to being used to monitor warehouse workers and all of that. How does amazon see see people. Why think a lot of a lot of this is workforce is so large that it has almost by necessity but also just by the amazon. Ian nature tried to create Systems and rules and technology to manage them. And so when you heard. Michael talk a lot of things. We're talking about rebellious kind of technological. Productivity measurements and tools and operational tool amazon has to manage. Its workforce you know Student brought up a good point earlier about unions aren't necessarily a third voice that's that they've representative workers and i think i was free support the amazon. That's a third voice but same time You know it has ways that it listens to workers now but it's not the same as having the workers voice representatives through a union and so for example. They have boards in voice amazonian brussels onboard. People can complaints or compliments not different things but the way they use that at a global level is they use artificial intelligence and natural language processing to figure out matic patterns in it so they they had to and also broke out of bear amazonian techie. Way have developed these kind of technological relationships with workers which is which is different than how even the walmart's an immense growth. What was fifteen or so years ago when it went through. it's huge. that's a different relationship numb when you the feedback workers get is often from rate ticker essentially on their on screen which is different than being a cashier in a store and bringing people up karen that is so fascinating. The algorithms are absolutely everywhere. Oh my gosh. So here's here's basis in two thousand eighteen in an interview with business insider talking about why he says he's proud. Not only of the wages of amazon pays cause remember two thousand eighteen. There is a minimum of fifteen dollars an hour but also how he says. The company treats its employees in our view. We have we have workers councils and we have very good communications with our employees. We don't believe that we need a union to be an intermediary between us and our employees but of course at the end of the day. It's always employs choice. And that's how it should be steven. What do you think. I'd be surprised to hear that amazon. Actually has workers councils. That's you know. And if they are workers councils than i imagine they might be handpicked by management and with the union the workers pick representatives and under federal law executives are required to sit down and listen to the workers concerns. Yes amazon says that it listens to workers but it's really unclear the degree to which they really listened. I remember years ago. I wrote walmart. Walmart would say for worker has a complaint. We have an open door policy. Come in and complaint show us. And i interviewed many workers who use the open door to file complaints and then they got fired soon after and they said the open door policy is actually the out the door policy. I'm not saying that's the case amazon. But i think you know. Some companies are so much cynical when they say they really listen. I'm sure karen has spoken to amazon. Workers who have heard who have voiced the same complaint. I hear say they feel like they often feel like robots. I interviewed a worker at the best. My warehouse daryl richardson. Who said he's a pickering to three hundred fifteen items our that's five items omitted and he says you feel like a robot and if you fall behind you risk getting fired several workers who said and if we have to go to the bathroom run a few hundred yards and take a few minutes to do that We might fall behind and that and if know and if you've got to go to the bathroom a whole lot in a certain day might end up risk getting fired so they feel that they're not listened to enough and many feel that there's a lack of dignity in the pressure that's put on them every

He called for grace understanding compassion saying he thought it was alarming. That people were just tearing this girl's life apart but he also said some things that many found insensitive and offensive a lot of people. And i'm wondering why would you defend. Rachel kirkhill i am an imperfect man. I made a mistake. And i own that. I believe that mistake doesn't reflect who i am or what i stand for. I am committed to the progress. Not just for myself.

"Michael thanks so much for joining me again man. Yeah it's great to be back again twice in a little over a month of pretty honored at this point. Michael rothstein covers boxing for espn and is behind the scenes. Look at clarisa. Shield is journey to. This moment is out now on. Espn dot com. Well michael we are honored to have you back on the show as well because you have this piece. You just reported on clarisa shields. Who is the biggest star in women's boxing. Maybe ever and her event coming up tomorrow night. it's being called superwomen. Some are also calling it. Her story play on history. But i need you to explain to me. What exactly it is that makes all of this so historic well. It's a couple of things. Pablo i is. This clarisa shields is the headliner on a pay per view card and there hasn't been a women's fight. Headlining a paper view card. In twenty years. We're talking last time it happened. Was layla alley and jackie. Frazier light and I don't think anyone listening to this. Podcast probably would remember watching that fight because it's been that long but they went one step further and not only. Is it her headlining. This is a car completely full of women's fights there's four fights on the card and this is going to be friday in her hometown of flint michigan in front of a little under. Maybe two hundred fans because that's what michigan is allowing at this point in this audience is going to have to come through paper view and this is again for classes. Shields and for promoter mostly because this hasn't been done before so there's no metrics on this there is no read on buys would be good or bad all of this is her taking a big bet on herself and who should be fighting. She's fighting marie eve to care who is also undefeated and they feel like. It's going to be one of the best fight in women's boxing this year and probably the best fight. They could have made for clarisa shields. And that's one of the challenges. Foreclosure shields right is. She is so good that it's tough to find opponents that are worthy of are very similar in some ways to. What can alvarez going through on the men's side if you watch that fight on saturday night because they are most just dominant so there are a lot of ingredients their them going to bite into but first off. When was the last time we even saw clarisa shields in the ring so the last time we saw her was january twenty twenty and that was against ivana hobbies in and she won a unanimous decision. Not twin make story the fastest fighter men or female to win titles in three divisions and choruses shields is plan was to fight for times last year. This fight against murray you care was initially scheduled for may ninth covid and did that so then almost immediately once boxing started to maybe possibly come back her and her team wanted to be one of the first fighters back. They went to their partner at the time showtime and they said hey we would like to be on an early card but it just never happened. She had dates in september. She had dates in october. Then she was told. Hey you're not gonna fight on showtime at all in two thousand and twenty.

Um, into think I saw it on Mulberry Street. And if I ran the zoo or two of the books So we start, they'll stop publishing them because of quote. Racist and insensitive imagery. The business of preserves protects the author's legacy. Says these books portrayed people in ways Um Mm hmm. These books portrayed people in ways that are hurtful and wrong, Dr Seuss Enterprises told The Associated Press in a statement. The coincided with the late author and illustrators birthday Um is the only part of the of is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr Seuss Enterprises catalog represents and supports all communities and families. Such a Innocents thing, Dr Seuss. So innocent Could barely think of anything that's more innocents and enjoyable. As a kid is a youth. Go to the library, man. I get these books. Now I'll be I'll tell you this. The books that are on this particular list. I have never read. I didn't read. It was a kid. I haven't read him ever. Ah! Mick Elegance pool. On beyond zebra. Scrambled eggs, super and the cats quiz er, now You know, I am aware of Dr Seuss's classic books. I'm really not to where to these of these, I should say.

Over the way Some of the people have been portrayed in his books. I mean, I look at the books. I never saw anything that seem defensive. School districts across the country have also moved away from Dr Seuss. Um Hmm. They say they're not have banned the books entirely. Well. That would be read utterly ridiculous. Recent shows Me research in recent years is revealed strong racial undertones of many books written by an illustrated by Dr Seuss hogwash, but that's what the school district said in a statement. I didn't know the good doctor. I don't believe there was a racist bone in his body or a sexist bone in his body. Everything he wrote seem very innocents. And we have to remember this was in different time. A different era. 2017, a school librarian, and Cambridge, Massachusetts, criticized the gift of 10 Dr Seuss books. Why? Well, I'll tell you why? Because they came from the first lady Melania Trump. Saying many of his works were steeped and racist propaganda characters and harmful stereotypes. O Lord.

Journalist Daniel Libit Unpacks Amicus Brief Supporting NCAA in NCAA v. Alston Case

"Perhaps the most important moment of this month from a sports standpoint could be in washington. Dc at the supreme court. That's when the much-heralded landmark potentially landmark case will be heard oral arguments will be hurt and there's a lot of controversy going on right now and our next guest is going with with with michael mcmahon. Has shed some some light on that. A friend of the court brief an amicus brief was filed recently in this case the nc. Double a. vs austin and it was discovered by our next guest and his colleague that what these athletes have done may end up hurting more than helping daniel limit joining us. And it's really great to have you on david. Thank you so much. We we've talked in the past with michael mccann. Both of you have really uncovered quite an extraordinary story. Here good afternoon and is a gentle way possible explained of those of us who don't understand this stuff as well as you what this is all about well first of all. Thanks so much for having me on the program. It's a it's an honor. Um yeah as you as you sort of previewed There was a group of former college. Athletes who on february eight filed in the meekest brief which is also called a friend of the court brief in the end of the blame. The allston case This was the eighth emeka. Brief that was filed in this case. But it was probably the most interesting and possibly the most impactful because this was the only breach that was being written and signed off on by actual former college athletes others. Who had weighed in on this. Were economists and law professors and subject matter experts but you know offensively. The people who would have been impacted by changes to the restrictions in compensation or scholarship limits while they were still in school and they were voicing their support for the incident which was kind of interesting because the caption of the case is the blake. The allston allston is shown. Allston the former west virginia running back. Who's the The name on a on a class of of former college athletes. And so you know curious. Who are the athletes who are actually standing up for being simple a and so a couple of weeks ago i started calling around and and reaching out to the eighteen athletes who had signed off on this brief two thirds of them are former olympic athletes But six of them are former major sports athletes. Five of them played basketball in college. And one of them is darren. Mcfadden the star football player for arkansas. Who had a kenya year. Nfl career retired in two thousand seventeen. And those are the ones who i thought. Were most interesting. Because those are the ones from the revenue that the so-called revenue generating sports who you'd think would have the most to gain By changes to the restrictions of Of compensation and In calling around Particularly with mcfadden who is kind of the marquee name used by far and away the most high profile of the former college athletes to sign onto this brief Occurred to me in our conversations with a few of them mcfadden included that their words didn't exactly square with what the brief said that when i was asking them. Sort of what motivated their position on the issue of amateurism What led them to to join us brief. They were kind of making better arguments for the plaintiffs for the players for the allston side than they work for. The incident lay And then through additional reporting and and and you know continuing to interview them it really raise questions whether or not they knew exactly what they were signing onto in the first place and whether or not their perspectives on college sports and amateurism aligned with the incident. Belay at all The las firm. That's filed this brief Is a major international law firm. It's called orc. They've done worked previously for the aa. So this was a serious brief filed by serious group of lawyers but it seem like some of their key voices And and their biggest most high profile name didn't know what they were actually signing up for or really didn't understand the specifics or for that matter. The the overriding point of the Of the litigation in daniel not to turn this into a legal drama but maybe in a small town lawyer runs down to the courthouse on friday and file something quickly just to try to stave something off or two for quick injunction. But we're talking about the supreme court here and of the most important cases That we've ever seen in relation to the ncw has something like this happen. You know well. That's a good question and reach out to law firm which pushback strongly in vehemently against any kind of suggestion that the brief was anything other than fully representative of of all of the athletes who signed onto it But yeah your your. Your point is exactly right. This is a very serious case You know this is probably the biggest college sports case to go before. The supreme court gain a quarter century And these are serious lawyers who filed the brief. And you'd think that they would be able to you know. Gather together a group of former athletes. Who really had a full understanding and appreciation of their side I think one thing that might suggest is how difficult it is. How difficult it might be or the blades. Position to find support among former major Or or major sport or or you know so-called revenue sports athletes And and that seems to be where the sticking point is. I spoke with other people who filed the sign onto the who were olympic sport athletes Who were much more articulate and and sort of informed on the on the points of of what the brief would say and what the blades position is but it does somewhat undermine the the argument that that you know. There's a wide swath of diverse in a diverse group of athletes. Who support the simple as that. It's not just the olympic sport athletes who Don't want necessarily the the floodgates of new compensation to come in but that they're actually people who who played football and basketball who also Subscribe subscribe to that tibet.

"Find a cure and i thought about that. And y'all been immediate my whole life and telling stories on the storyteller and i the national director of talk radio here in canada for for a company and we have tv stations and huge website. Well i have the platform. I've got the ability to gel story in here. I am hiding my disease from even my my colleagues rely co workers and so i thought well if i don't do it who will then. That's how we started the podcast with life gives you parkinson's it. It's it's really a platform to share the stories. And what i found was the fears that i had were unwarranted because the support that i get back now from not just my family and friends of my colleagues in my workplace is just unbelievable and you pretty much like whatever you need. A lot of snow and they. They've been there at every. Turn of everything i've done including they distributed podcast and give me promotional time on radio and tv. It's talk about it and to raise awareness of arkansas. And so you obviously not. Everybody has that opportunity but whatever that is for you the also people put it on facebook. Some people don't some everybody's different so whatever you're comfortable with. There's no right answer. You don't have to tell your work but you feel comfortable enough you can and you know it but you can ask You know there's a lot of people here to ask michael. J. fox has a lot of great resources. You can other guide for the newly diagnosed parkinson's so just check out the resource area of the michael j. fox website and you'll be able to get some more information on that We're going to transition into building your character. And we've talked about the the neurologist and movement disorder specialist dr less maybe you define the difference between a neurologist and movement disorder specialists like what is the what. What are the differences in their roles as as it pertains to parkinson's and what would you prefer. What's the preferred You know roll a neurologist or would you rather somebody with parkinson's see movement disorders plus okay great question. So let's start off by saying that when adopted does go to neurology residency. They get general training at then. You decide that you want to be a caught a sabella ship a fellowship is something where you do. Focus training for one to two years on one thing such as epilepsy or stroke are movement disorders. Women sorters comprises parkinson's disease. Essential tremor circled estonia huntington's disease and other movement disorders. Okay so you usually. People will find a general neurologist initially because they don't know the difference and or specialists exists in the term meats. And so if you do know that you think you're having symptoms of parks of parkinson. Ism are parkinson disorder parkinson's syndrome which is also novice then which you wanna do you want initially seek out a movement disorder specialists okay because that person as bill saying that person is going to Symptoms or not very obvious. Depp specialists going to be able to tease out easier. And usually dan a john rogers and so everyone everyone presents differently. Some people may present with trimmer. Some come in my office and said well. I don't even think. I have parkinson's because i have no you don't have to have trimmer have parkinson's disease. So when someone does this every single day of their life. That's important to do now. The important thing also knows that any generale's could call themselves is based on them. Saying i just do a lot of patients so what you wanna do. Is you want to add. There's there's no. There's no board exam for the disorder fellowships as sub special. So what you wanna do you wanna ask have you done a fellowship in movement disorders. Is that dr bells ship trained in movement disorders. Are they calling them this. Because his based on the scene a lot of people in their clinic right so the other thing. I wanna to point out. Is that a movement or a specialists as you. Go through your journey. We parkinson's disease it If there's no cookie cutter treatment everybody is different to support groups. Online forums works for you work for someone else. Some patients come in. They want to avoid medication. Some patients come in and they want medication now and they want more aggressive. We're we're in tuned to getting to know our patients in knowing what they what you know. Kind of how to implement that therapy and try to do. We know all the programs such as There's a lot of exercise programs out there that we could do. As you progress the parkinson disease there will be things that may come up such as blood pressure changes or instead of hypertension bladder problems Dementia on a life within ten years. Fifteen years or so psychosis sleep problems and we tend to treat those things as well instead of sending you to psychiatrists or urologists are two cardiologists. So it's almost like a comprehensive one stop shop and informational resource for patients where you'll know all these programs. Michael j. fox are the ppo disorder. Specialist is going to go to national conferences research conferences. And they're gonna be they're gonna know all the things available for you to get your resources and things that you'd naturally without medication right. Yeah that's great and we'll get into some diet and exercise coming up here in just a minute because it's important. Let's talk about some of those treatment. Options dr saint hilaire taking a high level. Look at how. What are the latest techniques for treating a dose parkinson's patient. You know everybody comes to the diagnosis from a different point. Some people have read a lot about parkinson's and might have already made their opinion. Other people have family members had parkinson or no people have harkinson other. People don't know anything about arkansas. So one thing i would. We ever diagnosed or discuss. The diagnosis is we have to gauge. Where the person is in the in the did you know it along the path. And you don't just have them thinking about what they are doing now that they can they can do now when the could in the past so you know. So having difficulties in doing activities of daily living our hobbies or functioning at work. But i'll be reasons to start medication. Patients who are not very disabled by distance dems and prefer next to start medication. And that's also a good choice for them if it works for them usually The way we start medications. You need to start. Medication is we. We look at the primary and the age of the person and the other medical dish in general. I mean it's really very.

"We have a lot to discuss today. and so let's get started and let's introduce our panelists fill allonge as a journalist who left nbc news in two thousand nine to start his own production and consultancy program along g media. He was diagnosed with parkinson's and twenty nineteen and quickly jump to action when the parkinson's progression markers initiative or p p m. i began recruiting again late last year. Phil was the first newly diagnosed person to enroll. We'll talk more about that decision. Later this hour phil welcome to the panel larry. It's good to be here. Dr jerome lists is a movement disorder specialist practicing in texas. He sees people with parkinson's at a range of experience with disease from recently diagnosed later stages he's also been a primary site investigator for multiple Arkansas clinical trials doctor list. Welcome to that. He learned it. Rather be here ed. It's great to have you and dr marie. Saint hilaire is a professor of neurology. A director of the american parkinson disease advanced center of research at boston university. She is involved in direct care of people with parkinson's and a range of research interests. Dr saint hilaire. Thank you for being here. You find letting me all right. So we have a full panel a lot to get to And for the newly diagnosed this may we're going to try to keep this as as top line as began but informational because there is we get into the weeds and we don't want to do that but We will promise you that there will be many takeaways. I encourage you to take notes Because you'll wanna follow up. Maybe this questions with your own urologist. Our movement disorder specialist after this webinar. So what is parkinson's phil. What a great question here. Parkinson's year parkinson ism a and what is the difference in. What do i have like. I i remember when i first got diagnosed like yes probably parkinson's and i'm like i have no idea like in my head and look. I have no idea what that means. I know what michael j. fox added mohammed ali eh. What do they have. I don't know my hand didn't do it. There's does why don't we go ahead and define parkinson's disease dr lists go. What what what are some of the comments symptoms. And what exactly is parkinson's so parkinson parkinson's. He is a neurological disorder of the brain that affects primarily movement and so far disease affects multiple chemicals in the brain but the one that is most popular dope me and when you have that lack of dopamine you can have slowness of movement which is really. How parkinson's google kinda start for a lot of people in the beginning. The second could be tremor and also fitness in this usually will on one side of the body or the uae times happens your dominant side artisan for everyone and the is is that you get to enroll disorder specialist which will go in later but as parkinson's develops rickaby more new symptoms. You develop that. The other chemicals that becomes deficient in his start to manifest. And that's why it's really important. Educate yourself and get in early. See someone i think. One of the surprising things is at least it was for me is i was collecting symptoms. But i didn't realize they were related. I just getting older. How how does somebody know that inside just aches and pains or the. Oh it's an essential tremor as you know it's nothing to worry about like people At least i kind of just sort of dismissed them all until it was there was enough of them. I'm like something's wrong here You encountered that quite a bit. Yes so frequently. What happens with parkinson's disease and other parkinson disorders is that you'd have non physical signs start to happen before the physical size. And if you're not aware this in you're not you're not educated on it like programs like yours have done a great job. In educating people and social media community there's a disorder called rem sleep behavior disorder. That could be a warning side where people will fight out their dreams and some people get them. Confused with nightmares are sleepwalking. This is where the person asleep and they are actually or kicking are yelling at someone they can even roll out of bed. This can have twenty years before you have your first physical sign of parkinson disease. If you all of a sudden lose your smell explanation. That could be a sign of not in parkinson's disease. Sometimes it happens. In alzheimer's parkinson's disease is more popular for that to happen in in also other things such a. They're soft or signs like constipation. Depression anxiety could happen as well but the big thing that we know is abnormal is if you're acting out your dreams because sixty to eighty percent of those patients will develop a parkinson disorder like parkinson's disease multiple system. Atrophy are lewy body dementia. Great thank you Let's fuck about the path of navigating. Parkinson's disease i e. Everybody's journey is so different. And i know early on dr single layer it. It's it's it's hard not to go. Well that person has this symptom or on that. There's a comparison going on especially between the newly diagnosed Can you talk about you. Know how how unique everybody's journey is and why it's important to really just focus on your own health balser. Everybody has a different progression and his on different medications but for most people. It thinks at least two years to get to a diagnosis of Nothing unusual patients have seen orthopedic surgeon before or You know sleep specialist. Because they're acting out their dreams. Like douglas mentioned so people can get to the movement disorders specialists two different pathways. Some people. it's physical therapist. Who said no. You should go see a neurologist show might might take a while to get diagnosed because we still don't have a specific test for the diagnosis is made clinically so important. Somebody who is experienced in diagnosing parkinson like a movement disorder specialists and initially when we see a patient who might not be sure. It's parkinson disease because they are various causes of arkansas. So parkinson is a few here. The parkinson's on it could it's rela term. That covers parkinson's disease but other causes of arkansas symptoms like sometimes it's caused by medications some it's caused by condition like malta system atrophy which mentioned so the mood disorder specialists role is to try to tease out relieved. What is the cost of your parkinson's symptoms and initially. It might be difficult because we still don't have a test. That's why michael j. fox is doing that. Ppm is studies trying to find a biomarker but.

"Larry oh my gosh. They can't keep us apart. Do it dynamic duo. That's right today. We we do have a sensitive topic. We're going to get into about cognition. We've got some great guests. We have melissa armstrong. She's md mse. So she is the associate professor and associate chair of faculty development director university of florida. Dorothy manchurian clinical research headquarters for lewy body dementia who mouthful. She takes care of people with parkinson's and related cognitive changes She's with the department of neurology at the university of florida and we also have a pamela and dana bland. Pamela is a person living with parkinson's she's having some cognitive changes she seventy. One is has parkinson's for twenty one years. She has been a nurse and educator and she and her husband dana live in donell in florida. Just outside of gainesville all right so we have a full house. We have dana and pam and melissa and rachel. Welcome to the podcast everybody. Happy be here. All right. So rachel lists and i started here you know. This is a sensitive topic. That's kind of hard to talk about. I wanna make sure i'm respectful. Oftentimes i get a little goofy so you gotta rain man okay. Michael j. fox wrote in his new book a. parkinson's condition i rarely contemplated before now much less spoke of is cognitive. Change loss of memory confusion. What am i thinking. And how am i doing and frankly he speaks for a lot of us in the parkinson's community especially when it's first starts to happen. You're like oh. Is that parkinson's or is that me getting older. And and how do you notice the difference in how to maneuver through that. So i'm going to start with you. Rachel probably bring him melissa. But like when you know that it's actually a part of the parkinson's disease instead of just old age. Well i think exactly like you said it's such a sensitive topic and it so hard to talk about people with without parkinson's and people tell us so regularly though that this is one of the things that they really worry about. That people with parkinson's worry about that. Their families worry about and we sort of do a disservice by not talking about it so as much as we can as comfortable as we can ever get with this tough topic. It's so important to talk about it. And that's i'm so glad we're having this conversation that we have people who are joining us to talk about their experience because the more we can open up this dialogue the better we can get at tackling these tough issues and having these regular conversations with loved ones and with our doctors who can help us along. So let's bring dr armstrong melissa. Let's just start at the very basics. What is cognitive issues. Cognitive decline or kneel cognitive problem. How do you define cognition on. I talk about it and parkinson's i really like to use the term memory and thinking because that really captures that when we think about memory and age and thinking we also offer focus on that memory piece of it but when we think about cognition. It's a lot more than memory it is. How do we multitask. How do we pay attention to things. How do we understand where objects are in space. How do we use our flow. Still think about cognition. It's memory and thinking and so melissa cognition memory in thinking they can they do change naturally with age right but then they also can change with parkinson's so how do.

Is $50,000 BTC the Beginning of a Bitcoin Supercycle?

"What's going on guys. It is tuesday february sixteenth. And today we are talking about. You know it fifty thousand dollar bitcoin and specifically whether it's shows that we are in a bitcoin super cycle so i the news after a week or so of threatening the rubicon was breached this morning between seven forty five and eight am eastern time. Bitcoin punched up above fifty thousand. Now it immediately met cell wall and had a six hundred dollar candle down in is at the time of recording closer to forty nine thousand but to me that technical response is far less significant than these psychological barrier of a fifty thousand dollar being breached so today's special early breakdown is all about that. I reached out to followers this morning. Asking what topics you all thought were important for a fifty k. Show i also popped into a couple of different clubhouse chats to see what people were focused on and overwhelmingly across both of those mediums. The thing that people wanted to talk about is whether this is another indicator that we're in a bitcoin super cycle. I'm going to discuss this. It's going to be the main focus of the show. What the idea of a super cycle is where it came from what it might mean and some different ways to look at it but first let's blast through a few of the other topics folks wanted to disgust. Let's try to start with something that if not negative is sort of dismissive to be honest. It's kind of hard to find those bitcoin stomping face but here we are peter. Brant tweeted fifty. Thousand is a nice round number. That means absolutely nothing. Technically trying to sound smart just sound smart helps to define dumbness now. Let's contextualized. Peter is speaking to a trading audience and that trader audience are not supposed to in their own estimation get emotionally invested in an asset or let narrative shape. What they do. So let's give peter the benefit of the doubt and assume that that's who he's talking to however if he is truly arguing that technicals are all that matter about an asset. The easy rejoinder is that markets are by their very definition a constant give and take between narratives and technicals and frankly narratives tend to reshape the bounds that frame the upside and downside potential of those technical indicators either way for the sake of completeness i wanted to include something sort of negative but i think we can move on next. Let's discuss michael sailor. Just doing michael sailor things about five minutes before fifty thousand was breached. Sailor dropped a new press release from micro strategy long story. Short micro strategy is offering another six hundred million in debt and all the words of the press. Release our legalese. Except for this. Little line micro strategy intends to use the net proceeds from the sale of the notes to acquire additional bitcoins. Pomp summed it up perfectly when he tweeted. Michael sailor is carrying out one of the highest conviction investment thesis we've ever seen in public markets. Incredible to watch okay next. People are wondering how this happened. Or why will. I think the wise a little obvious. We saw an insane amount of positive news last week. Tesla b. and y. Mellon mastercard twitter. Deutsche bank morgan stanley. Every show for the last week has been about some type of crazy positive news. If you've been listening it's hard for that amount of positive news to not have an impact in other words. The specifics of win this fifty thousand dollar price was going to happen. Are for those technicals. That i was mentioning above to figure out but the overall momentum has clearly been in this direction. This actually gets me to another point. I was trying to articulate on twitter. We have this linear time bias. That when things happen quickly we tend to feel like that the thing that was before the you're comfortable with was the correct thing versus the new thing and the new change. That happened really fast. In other words. Bitcoin was between ten thousand. And fifteen thousand for a really long time so fifty thousand seems overvalued but what if instead based on what we now know. Bitcoin was in fact radically undervalued for that. Same ferry long time.

"You had mentioned the importance of urgency earlier as you grow. The organization grows in two hundred million dollar years of investment every year. Does it become harder to have that urgency. I think that urgency is a state of mind and a practice. So i don't think i don't think you lose it intentionally. What i've seen in witnessed and taught could speak more to this as well. Is that the further. We've gotten into this. The war complex. Some of the the scientific opportunities have become or the orchestration around some of the biggest needs in terms of scientific leadership in breakthrough in. So it's not that we're less urgent but there are times when what we're trying to accomplish is extremely complex and were wise. We are wise to devote the right amount of time to getting that right. There's no point in rushing to the wrong actions and so today. I think you know it's a bigger ship but i'm really. I remain impressed with our a program team's ability to really adapt and evolve and respond and lead and all those things have to be done thoughtfully and so urgency. I think one of the things. I'm most proud of is when i get the chance to connect with with people out in the community and people who know us well or people who are just meeting us and maybe i'm the second person they've met from the fox foundation. You know one of the most consistent. Things i hear is the how people in our community experienced the fox foundation team. And you hear the values that michael ni- felt strongly about kind of reflected back in the way in which the team interacts with everybody that we engage with their heart and head put to work on Doing whatever it takes to to move the dial. And and i think that you know that reminds me. I get that constant reminder that urgency is one of those things and it certainly valued by the the people with parkinson's in their and their loved ones tug. She invoked your name. So i'm going to bring you into the conversation. You entered the michael j. fox foundation when it was four years old. How hard is it to have that urgency as you grow and grow and grow Yeah thanks larry i. Maybe i'll make a few comments just to add into a debbie said in use my liberty to answer your question. I one of the things. I think i was in the scientific community in two thousand so i got to see the foundation. I from that side and then as i joined as you said in two thousand and four sort of seeing it grow and develop from the inside i mean. What are the things about urgency. That i think was clear from the beginning Which is still very active at the foundation relates to even a discussion that you were having with debbie around the science being ahead of the money. One of the other things that debbie and michael really emphasized from the beginning was also to focus.

"How do you think about matching up the right money to the right science and and that is something. I'm i was always interested in making sure that if you're gonna do it figure out how to move the dial. And and his. You know an and i'm kind of a act on it kinda person and so. That's my version of urgency. Goals is the same version. I think so many patients and families hold which is now is better than than the future. Yeah what can we do today and given what we know. What actions can we take. So you know that of productivity. The value around urgency. We both feel very strongly about accountability. And you know he. He had his name and reputation on the line. And i felt strongly i kind of earnest so and i think also we both recognize that it. Would you know the collaboration would be needed. So how do you think about partnering. And so i think these things were coming together and pretty clear. Right from the get-go our first meeting. We felt that that connection when you announced that the relaunching the michael j. fox foundation for for parkinson's research. How is that news received by the research community. I think there was a lot of enthusiasm. I mean You know michael was already even though he'd been diagnosed and hid his illness for seven or eight years. He was at this point public and had mentioned those intentions. There was no organization really in place quite yet so by the time i was hired and had the chance to kind of put together a very quick Game plan i thought there was. I think there was a lot of up interest in you know. I knew that michael Course inspire people with parkinson's their families. But i had a sense. You know scientists would get excited and inspired by that too in. That really did play out. Folks were excited about the attention on. But i think they were tuned into the promise that that michael would be successful in raising awareness and bringing together community and researchers are wise. They also know where to sniff out some good capital opportunities and so i think there was. That enthusiasm also was was was at hand. You opened the doors on october. Thirty first two thousand has the vision and mission of the organization evolved much since then. Of course it we've evolved we've learned about how to Kind of put our money to work but the philosophy i think is the same. We you know thinking about the. There's no end to the amount of money that you could spend on research so we had to really think about whatever amount of money we were going to be able to raise whether it was a couple of million dollars in the first handful of years versus now you know Well over one hundred million dollars a year you know we have to know how to spend it smartly. I think though that aspect is still how we treat our yard daily in our annual plans. You know we want to be as smart as we can with whatever Money we can assemble from our funding partners and just make the most of that deployment at any point in time..

"Or it's either using a vaccine approach discussion vaccines right now. Because of covid. And then there's also more traditional approaches of using molecules to specifically target mis folded alphabetically and in the brain that we think can cause cell death in the progression of the of the disease. And then we have a lot of different Before i forget. There's so many trials happening also with regards to biologics or lung bag can by jin that are using this passive immunotherapy approach. That is creating these specific. Antibodies that are gonna bind to different parts of toxic apple simply plans to try to get them cleared out in the brain and then we have a genetic. The whole genetic field within parkinson's has just exploded in revolutionized how we conduct parkinson's research and lark to gb a mutation those genes of some of the most common causes of genetic form of parkinson's disease and we're seeing a lot of exciting drug trials that are happening from groups such as by jin groups such as the nollie prevail for for for gb. A pseudo fee. That has their own approach again. A lot of different approaches. Michael go into the jargon of of all the different targets but it really shows a robust cynical pipeline that were very excited about so bread as a patient. How does it make you feel that. Someone has smart as marco can't even keep track of all these trials that are going on because there's so many of them say i didn't understand any of the funny fancy words that he used. So so i'm encouraged. I mean it's it's amazing to hear this kind of of activity in the area and we were talking earlier about on and off periods and symptoms but being able to stop parkinson's The actual progression disease is obviously spectacular as many patients including myself are still at the point. Where if we could freeze our our disease right now even with symptoms that we have and know that the progression wouldn't continue. I would take that as a win so so this this kind of Research is very very encouraging to me and as we learned throughout with all clinical trials. We even see this with the covid vaccine trials going on while we all want results as quickly as possible. Those results don't happen unless people participate in this research so alissa what is the role that patients can play in this robust pipeline. That we've seen development. You took the words right now. Todd eighty five percent of trials. Faced delays in thirty percent actually never even get started because of the chronic shortage of volunteers so the bigness role that patients can play in this pipeline. That's i raising their hands to join a study and encouraging others in their community to do the same if you've never participated in research before you can find a guidebook to learn the basics of clinical research..

"Fox dot org slash here we cannot wait for the split to the mall and we're really hoping to be able to share pieces of it with our community over the course of the fall and even going into twenty twenty one and all I can tell you, I, know it's going to be a great repairs books. Always are you said the title is an optimist considers mortality which seems pretty timely in the era that we're living in of. Cova. But the book really focuses on his experiences during twenty eighteen. It is funny as that title in a year like this when so many people are being asked to to grapple with such a difficult times of loss and sickness and fear, and really all the things that genuinely do make up our own mortality. and Michael didn't know any of those things when Miss Book title was written you know again, that was all going back to twenty nineteen or even before so. You know what the book really is about and I think this is You know. So interesting about Michael he knows very well. THAT HE IS A. Celebrated as the emblem of. Optimism and hope and grace and courage and what I think he's exploring in this book is what are the limits of that kind of approach? What does it mean to feel like you're losing your optimism because it's just one thing after another so I haven't read the book yet. I can only imagine the beautiful things that he is going to have to say about this, and again, what a gift to all of us to have a story like that to read in a year like twenty twenty. So it's just another thing that you know I feel. So grateful to Michael, forgiving us and I, and I can't wait I can't wait to read it and I can't wait for everyone to be talking about it. You'll be able to buy Michael's book wherever you enjoy buying your books. Yeah. Now, you can probably get you know these days. People can probably just pick it up on Amazon unlike when I started at the Fox sedation that I had to actually walk into a into a noble. In a typical year, we have a big November gala for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, but covid nineteen Blah So we are planning very cool Virtual Research Roundtable November seventeenth marking twenty years of the Michael J.. Fox, Foundation. What should we expect? This is going to be such a fun highlight of our fall I. Hope everyone will come sign up and hang out with us for the research. Roundtable because what we're GONNA do is really cover off on some of the highlights of twenty years of research progress in Parkinson's. Not just the role of the foundation. But what these new developments mean for people living with the disease whether you have the disease or someone you love has the disease and you know some of the exciting really science-fiction he kinds of Projects that we see coming down the line in the next year, you know in spite of covert lots of progress remains everything from targeting our NA in new drugs.

Oh, my gosh. Well, first of all, I should say nobody is more excited the knee. This is Michael's fourth book, and here is a story that I can tell you when I first at the Michael J. Fox Foundation, I called the person who hired me at that time the VP of communications and I said, are there any books I should read? So I had worked in research, a communications of really my whole life but. I didn't know that much typically about Parkinson's is I. I came into this job and I said thirty bucks I should read and she said well, I, don't know if there's really a Parkinson's book but you know you should read Michael's memoir lucky man. So. I. Will Never Forget to remember Barnes and noble that I walked into This is two thousand five. So Amazon was not even profitable yet Larry and you know and I walked in and I found his little book in the in the memoirs section. And I thought. Well, you know I'm going to read this this weekend I'm like doing my homework. And I started reading it. It is like he is an amazing writer and it was like I couldn't put it down. So that was how I started to come to know that Michael is such a gifted communicator and storyteller and bat book you know just stayed with me, and of course, now in my job, I have all of his books and he kinda teases me because they're very dog-eared. So. I. Have Lots of posted notes across all of his books with the different stories details of either relate to our work or other people you know in his world that sometimes you know work with ourselves at the foundation. So he has this book coming out. I. Will Say, I've seen the I think you can now go to Amazon and see the book cover you know it's available. For preorder he had showed me the book cover like they had done the photo shoot and he had the cover designs you know from the publisher they had mocked up a few different reasons and we were at a Board Meeting Foundation Board meeting he came up to me and he showed me the one that they picked and this was like this is pre Kobe. This was like two. Thousand Nineteen Times and it's so beautiful. The photo of him the title of the book is no time like the future an optimist considers mortality. We could talk more about that title, but I was looking at this book cover and I was like Oh.

"We're all looking for that disease modifying drug the thing that will either stop or slow this thing down and and help us return to the way we were without any medication would be obviously hope cure. But until that time these new compounds. To a certain extent and for me again, fortunate have allowed me to get back to pretty much a normal can do the things I love to do and and allowed to do that while we continue to wait. For those disease, modifying drugs and believe me I'm an optimist I. Think you have to come and due in large part to the foundation are the as are these first three things that we have come down pipeline to help patients and I think that's so important to point out that as we're so focused on a cure and closing our doors were also at the same time focused on making people's lives better today, and so we did fund early development of Breda. Over a million dollars on early stage clinical trials there we funded scales to measure disconnect to help enable the development of covering and these drugs are helping people today there are a lot of benefits to them. The impact is related to people in our capability and I seen a strengthen that capability over the. Last. Really. Ten years if you will and that is. Really getting people in a position with the skills and capabilities, tell choose that Broadway programs but still the wants to have the highest probability of success and then I think the other thing is getting much better at holding people accountable for delivering results and making sure that the money we're spending is going to yield the last possible probability of a positive result and it falls both in the area of drugs for today that helped with success symptoms. And for the future for drug modifying compounds, it is a really great discussion and if you want to hear the whole thing or watch the whole thing, it's ask the MD in conversation it's video series.

"When we're together, we don't talk about each other's politics we about each other's medications or about new. Advances in research. So I'm just wondering whether or not there is a way and I'll start with you Alison Willis that that as a community we can perhaps model what it means to work together to find solutions for those common concerns rather than being so divided both. Well I. Think what we're doing right now today is a great example of how we can begin to have. Meaningful dialogues about. policies and laws that are important to individuals who have Parkinson's disease, those who care for them and those who loved them. and. See that. Shared concerns, our shared struggles are nonpartisan. And work together to try to alleviate those concerns to address those concerns by following the science by advocating for healthcare policies that expand access in red and allow for prescription drugs to be affordable. And allow for us to see providers who have the expertise to make our lives better. With are nonpartisan issues such. Willis.

"It has been funded over the past two years I believe and funding is in you know in place for the coming year. So we feel very good about about that We feel better about the partnership that we've been able to create with the CDC and building out. A lot of you know MS and Parkinson's are the two diseases that they chose to do I as a pilot to just. Enable proof of concept to make sure that what was fashioned in the law is possible. So we're feeling good about that. And I'm GonNa, take the opportunity and dovetail immediately into the state registries because. One of the reasons state registries are so important is the data collected in those states will flow up into the national surveillance system. Because the surveillance system as enacted only has funding that would pretty much able the CDC. To determine prevalence with with specificity or with confidence. But because of the state registries, that date is going to be able to flow into the surveillance system making it a much more powerful research database. So we're excited about that In terms of other states Paul. Just let you know that Nebraska is the longest Parkinson's registry Utah did create one. As, well with California being the biggest one that is generating you know by far the most data. Given a fantasy situation where the coronavirus. The state was. Not Going to fund the registry anymore even though they had invested three point, seven million dollars to build it out the we ended up issuing a grant of the state of California in order to keep that registry going you know meant you know mentioned to that You know high the state senator that has drafted a bill and to to create a registry. He's going to introduce the next year and that happens because he knows whenever advocates in Ohio. And made the connection to Parkinson's and what can I do? That's an example of how an advocate connection is enabling us to possibly get another registry and one of largest seats in the country to great point head and a good I think motivation for all of us to be engaged at the local level because that's where some of these differences can begin to be made and as Ted sfjazz spy creating these registries at the state. Level, and then we'll make the national registry that much more robust and I think it also speaks well of what the Michael J. Fox Foundation can do. One of the things. One of the many things foundation does is to step in when needed and this was a case where the the Michael J. Fox stepped in and help sustain the effort in California during time in California and of course. So many states are deeply challenged by the pandemic.

"I do and it makes me remember this motivational quote that sometimes motivates need that I have hanging in my closet by my workout gear. funnily, enough that says the only bad workout is the one you don't do and I say this because it's what I always say Parkinson's is that the best exercise is the one you will actually do right. So whatever exercise that you will do and do regularly is the one that's good for you. So that's why we haven't as a run slash walk right? Paul. Crawl maybe. Whatever you'll do, it is good for you and exercise is so important in Parkinson's and I feel like I'm saying this all the time, but it's good for your general health. But in Parkinson's, it's also good for decreasing your motor and your non motor symptoms. It helps your medication work better, and if you do it with other people, it helps prevent or lessen the isolation that can come along with Parkinson's. So it's you know it's good for everything and and it's just as important as the medication that you take. That's great and just do what you can do like the nobody. I know Jimmy toys out there breaking world records and that's awesome. But you know not everybody needs to do one hundred and thirty seconds. I loved Jimmy Choi by the way. Can I just say that? Isn't it? Amazing? So. That same weekend holly the we into the Five K. ten K. There's a special founder's fireside chat. It sounds cozy sounds like a hot ticket to. What is this? Yes we have taken a page out of FDR's playbook. In all seriousness. If there's anyone more just inspirational. And wise than our organizations founder Michael J. Fox. I haven't found that person yet and one of the great privileges of what we do at the foundation and especially would art team does. Is Whenever we get the chance to really bring Michael's voice to everyone who's in our community and WHO's in this mission whip us Michael together with his co founder my boss Debbie. Brooks. Really started the organization with this vision twenty years ago, and it's a couple of things are remarkable that sound. Different, but they are really the same all the progress that we've actually made in a short time, and also just how consistent you know the vision has been the whole time. Again, this idea of bringing the real urgency, the acceleration to the research that is going to bring us better treatments to cure faster. We cannot wait we have enlisted a good friend of the foundation cliff leaf Our listeners may know him as the Editor in Chief of Fortune magazine they may also know him as. The Guy Behind. The brainstorm health blog. And Conference. So he is very ercent in the world of Biomedical Research at Neuro Science and he has sat down with Debbie and Michael in the past and he will be doing it again. And it'll really be kind of an intimate discussion. We hope where Michael and Debbie will share a gun what caused them to WanNa bring an entity like the Michael J., Fox Foundation into the world what their vision was on what they think when they think about all the progress that we've made thus far, and where we're going next and so these two are you are so right Larry, it's a total hot ticket. They're so fun to listen to you cliff is also just the best he so smart about the way that he.

"Absolutely. So my experience from writing comprehensive review article, and basically all of apathy logic studies we have human research with toxicants associate with Parkinson's disease and Paraquat is absolutely one of those pesticides. Dot has a very strong association with Parkinson's and now isn't limited to only professional use in the united. States but has been banned in many other countries. So I think it's Really, forward, thinking and important that Michael J. Fox Hound Asian as advocating more regulation and limitation of the use of this compound and then there are other types of compounds as well. Organophosphate, which are another form of pesticides that unfortunately have been an household compounds as well. organofluorines. I'm certain metals like manganese exposure that can happen and certain types of factories or industries, and then. PCB's which are fatty soluble compounds that are no longer and industrial use, but are still very residual in long lasting and fatty fish. So I think a big takeaway I have from my reading and research about this is that these effects are very long lasting. You know a person can get exposed early in life and have continued effects, years and years after the fact, and then also these compounds. Can last in the environment for a very long time and still post continued risks. So constant reevaluation of the compounds that we're using and knowledge about the standing effects I think is gonna be a constant process. So it's great to have some advocacy on this topic to have our safety committees really reevaluating compounds not just when they're released for us but years after the release to reevaluate safety group to. I was just gonNA Reiterate what? Dr. Patio said. that it's it's really important that exposure you know you might think that when you get exposed, you would show symptoms. at the same time, but it turns out that a lot of the development of symptoms occurs a long long period after the exposure was taking place, but there's this latent period that. is up in some cases up two decades long and We've we're using rotenone. We've reproduced that that kind of effect where you treat the animals and then wait a period of months, and then the animal starts slowly developing Parkinson's like symptoms -nology..

"Were sent to their offices, how many social media posts and re tweets and things like that. Have Richard. Olive, it aimed toward affecting public policy. In this case, namely the votes of members of the House and Senate, and so the weight of all, that is really what will help tell us whether we're being successful in our efforts. All right. So I want you get out your scoring Pencil, Ted this is the best test you'll ever get because you get to self evaluate what grade would you give the foundation as it relates to the success measurements you've just outlined. I would give it. I'm not going to be arrogant we can always do better. So I'm GONNA give it an A. minus and I'm doing that because since the policy department was formed with Michael J. Fox Foundation. It's a, it's an organization wide effort we have. Our policy team is only what people see because we've got tremendous backup support for marketing communications, digital strategies pretty much every department. and. So we have a really broad based. Effort with within the foundation to assure that we're making as many touch points as possible. So it's it's really not just that single. Gets emailed out in somebody takes action on we've got a much more holistic broacher foundation. So that's that's why I'm willing to scored. So high because where we have had much more direct impact. Since. Policy Department was formed at Michael J. Fox Foundation then we had been able have previously. When did that happen? that. Was a little over four years ago. Two Thousand Sixteen. Wow. It's been that long. Yeah. Yeah. I mean think about how much you've done I mean that's amazing. What did you catch a little bit on what Ted was talking about as far as the measurement of success? For, me as as an advocate. Building relationships with staff members on Senate and House side, and being able to call them up to where they know your name. They know what you're calling about or mostly which call about unless there's something different that comes up and the idea is that those relationships very far. I.
