"It will be offensive guys. The strength of the draft at twenty four will be defensive players regardless of dabbing steelers need. That's just going to be the fact of the matter. A couple of these guys. That i think will be very interesting. Our players that have multiple positions about them and of course when it comes to linebacker. There's too is that. I think could potentially be there twenty four that do more than just play inside linebacker. Those two guys being jeremiah who sequoia and saving collins jeremiah. Lusa caramel core moa or j. o.

He can plays an outside linebacker and he can play the slot. Having someone that can play that many roles. It doesn't matter whether or not he's a starter defense. He still going to get like ninety percent of the playing time. Just playing roles that are those sub packages and giving guys rests. We know outside linebackers inside linebackers. They can't play the entirety of the game. It just it just isn't realistic for defensive player. I it's more tiresome to play on that side of the football when you reacting rather than having that offense plan knowing where the ball's going being a reactive defensive player it takes more out of you you see that every week t. J. watt playing eighty ninety percent of the snaps. That's just the way it is at weight isn't football.

Dallas Names Eddie Garcia as New Police Chief
"Joining us now on the line is the president of the Dallas Police Officers Association. Mike Madi is a friend of the show. We've talked to him. Numerous times about Dallas police issues and today we want to talk to him about the fact that Dallas has finally picked a new chief San Jose Former police chief Eddie Garcia. So, Mike, First of all Merry Christmas, thanks for joining us today. Merry Christmas, Scott. All right? Yeah, thanks for coming on. Let's let's start right with this, Or are you happy with the higher or officers happy with this choice? Well, I think we're looking at this choice is a person who is well qualified. You know, I think it's no great secret that the rake vile wanted somebody from the inside. But if if T c was going to pick an outsider, he definitely pick somebody who was definitely had the resin. Main was well qualified. Well prepared for this job. What about his resume? Specifically, Has you guys excited? Well, I think he's done his brought his department through a lot of what Dallas is battling and has had to fight through. Hey, brought a department through. Um, you know, a pension issue a morale issue. Haven't attrition issued at a hiring problem they had, you know, embracement of the community issues and he was able to bring this department through that, you know, so he's had to make those hard decisions. They have the same issues with protests and rights. In San Jose, you know, being the 10th largest city in Dallas being the night so it's a comparable, very comparable population, and he did it with a third of the size of the department. So you know, obviously he has experienced making those hard decisions and that this isn't needed. To make an effective and efficient police department. And we're hoping he can bring that here. That sounds like all the things you just listed the morale. The protests and stuff like the hiring are all issues that Dallas has faced. No. We've talked about several times over the last couple years of those things you listed. I mean, what would you put as number one will get to crime and violent crime here a little bit, But of those things, I mean, what's the number? One thing officers are looking at. In terms of please help us with this. Well, I think he has to come in, and he has to one get the support of the rank and file and that's where chief always lacking. You know, she was unable. She was never able to really see eye to eye with Reagan file and get them to buy into her crime fighting initiatives. Because I don't think the rank and file really knew what it wa so we never had an idea of exactly or it's never communicated to the rank and file. What exactly are we doing? How we fighting this? What do you need from us? And not only that? Are you going to support us when we do that, and so you know, and listening to Chief Garcia and what he was saying in his interviews. Talking torto officers that have worked underneath him over there in San Jose. They also the same thing. This is a guy that when you're right, he is gonna fight for you. And when the department's wrong he's gonna own up to it. So I think that's what was lacking are last year's here in the city of Dallas. I think the community felt like they weren't heard on DSA. Oh, I think we're getting somebody with Garcia, who has a great story. You gotta remember. He came over here as an immigrant didn't even speak the language. Um, went, came up the ranks through San Jose, uh, from every from patrol officer to sergeant. The lieutenant on he was an operational command. And so he's again. He's had to make those hard decisions and he's had to get troops to follow him. That's what he's going to have to do here. Yeah, the first Latin chief in the history of Dallas Police Department, 41% Latino population or Hispanic population in
Austin Mann on the iPhone 12 Pro camera
"Start with the the iphone. Twelve pro What is new this year with. That came snapple. Make big hardware changes on the regular twelve pro. There were some Some hardware changes they upgraded the wide lens to a news at seven element lens and and it's slightly faster than it was before meaning the the aperture can open up a little bit wider and it can let more light in than the previous previous than last year's wide lens when i refer to wide lens i mean the the normal one x and and but really the twelve pro upgrade was really focused on software and this is where we just really got to see what the software team at apple has been working on and see really really shine things like a night mode on the ultra wide. We're huge huge upgrades and And so it was really cool to see a The im- improvement and overall image image creation capacity on the twelve pro with Really purely almo- almost almost exclusively on in software and The story on the twelve pro. Max of course was which will get to more about hardware. The computational photography thing is we're apple has really put the gas down and it kind of makes sense because you got this camera with what is it like a basically a quarter of an inch of depth in the laws of physics determine. Exactly how much lens you can put with that much space but if you can improve it on the compute side while the with these fourteen ships. They've got a lot of compute power to spare and every year you go to the wwe see and or to the iphone announcement and they announced this ridiculous number of computations that are done on every image that you take through the device and that's where the heavy lifting is being done now. Yeah it's really. It's really incredible to experience. All of that crazy technology being pointed towards a better user. Experience and a magical. It's also it's it's it's magical it's like beyond belief how well this can create images and that. I think it's easy. We've come to expect so much of of our iphone cameras that It's easy to kind of get it. This you know kinda lose the the sense of of what is actually doing but at the end of the day every user picks it up takes a great photo. And that's that's really amazing and in almost any lighting scenarios. Now mike one of the one of the things that's really blown. My mind is just how the rules are different in a camera that relies so much on software for for example. If i were to take a three or four second exposure. Let's say a five second exposure with my traditional pro camera it would be almost impossible to keep that image sharp hand holding it. you know. It's very very difficult to hold the camera for five seconds super still and it's it's exposing one frame and it would definitely be impossible to do that while while driving in a moving car right or like with any sort of bumps or anything like that and the just the the laws of physics and the laws that were familiar with as photographers. Just don't allow you to do that. You just can't keep chart well on the iphone you're dealing with a different set of laws and rules because of how the software bridging the gaps. And basically you know when you're shooting night modem this five seconds exposure on your iphone. It's not shooting just one long frame. It's instead it's shooting multiple frames per second. And then it's auto aligning the ones that line up in our sharp and so over over five second exposure you might have you know you'll have dozens and dozens of different frames in the iphone will throw out the ones that aren't good. Where maybe you were shaking or bumping and it'll stack all the ones that are lined up and they're sharp in delivers you a sharp image. Even if i see my hand is moving. I still get a sharp image and though that's just like that's just crazy and it's hard to kind of wrap your mind around it and so the more i always really encourage you know when you get a new especially for traditional photographers when they get a new iphone camera to really go out and play with it. A time to understand where the delimitations are kind of how it works because it thinks and again it has rules that are so much different than what we we traditionally think of as photographers
Under Your Feet
"You may remember Charles Wilson Peel as the man featured in episode thirty four all about museums in Philadelphia's independence hall above the very room where the declaration of Independence was signed. He opened a museum to display a whole bunch of unusual things. There were mammoth skeletons, ancient artifacts, a wily and well traveled little prairie dog and a wall full of portraits of very important people. He painted those VIP portraits himself appeal among everything else was a remarkable artist and the paintings that he made of the many people who lived in the late seventeen hundreds are some of the best of the time period. We should remember that in the seventeen hundreds there was no television or computers there weren't even photographs. So the average person would probably never actually catch a glimpse of someone famous like George Washington or Ben Franklin and person. which meant that they might not know what they really looked like. Isn't that funny thing to consider if you were alive at the time and wondered what a person look like looking at a portrait was just about the only way to see a famous face. So, curious people were happy to pay Peale's museum admission to see paintings of these very important people and finally put faces with the names they had heard about all the time, the old animal parts and the little prairie dog that peel had on display. Just a nice bonus. Now Peel was just one man and he couldn't paint everyone. Appeal portrait was typically an honor reserved for only the most notable people, presidents, founding fathers, famous personalities. You had to do something pretty special to get appeal portrait. And here's another thing to keep in mind. This was the seventeen hundreds in America and the early eighteen hundreds. So all of the faces that tended to fit those descriptions at that time were white faces. All except for one. On the wall that peel filled from floor to ceiling portrait's in his museum, one painting certainly stuck out to any visitor. It was the face of a black man and he was very old. And the dark skin on his narrow face was accented by white tufts of beard hair in the painting. He's wearing a knit cap on his head. Mike one you'll probably be getting out soon with the rest of your winter clothes. If you haven't already the old man's eyes looked bright and strong and his expression was one of satisfaction. It's an incredible face to look at and many people have wondered who was this man in a way the portrait happened by accident. In eighteen nineteen peel had traveled from his home in Baltimore to Washington DC to paint James Monroe the fifth president of the United States. while. They're peels. Curiosity was piqued when he heard about a free black man who is a practicing Muslim and who not only owned a home in nearby. Georgetown but was a successful business man who had helped finance the bank. This was remarkable and because this was forty six years before the civil war and the end of slavery, it was very unusual. This man was called Yaro Mahmoud. And people said he was one hundred and forty years old. That part was fake. He was probably around eighty at the time but everything else was true. Peel had to make a special trip across the Potomac River to meet Yaro talk with him about his life and have him sit for a very unusual portrait. Painting portraits takes a lot of time as you might imagine, which means there's plenty of time to talk, and that's what Yaro did. The little that we know about him today is mostly because Peel wrote much of it down. It's a pretty amazing story and one that challenges our ideas of the people who were living and thriving in. America at the time. In the year. Seventeen. Fifteen euro was only fourteen when he was captured and taken from his home in West Africa he like millions of other men, women and children was victim of the slave trade. People were kidnapped from their lands, take into another and forced into Labor. Euros people were known as the Fulani and it is believed that his family were wealthy Muslim leaders in this community. Historians think this because Yaro knew how to read and write both in the Fulani language as well as Arabic. Later in his life he learned to read and write a bit of English as well. Making him literate in three languages. That's a feet for anyone at the time but especially unusual for someone who would live much of his life and slavery. Most. Enslaved people would be kept from learning to read and write at all. But for euro, it helped him stand out. After the terrible journey on a slave ship across the Atlantic Ocean Yaro landed in Maryland where a man named Bell bought him directly off the boat. Everything and everyone Yaro new was gone never to be seen again, the man who legally purchased him was a wealthy farmer who owned several properties that depended on the work of enslaved people, farms, watermills, things like that pretty quickly though bell figured out that Yaro was more well suited for work other than hard plantation labor luckily, for Yaro, his education lead to another old, he became what is known as a body servant. In this role young Yaro traveled with bell everywhere he went. When he met with other farmers, Yaro was there. He met the people he would sell his grain too Yarra was there. When he met with powerful politicians, Yaro was also there. And nearly every one of those people would remember meeting Euro. Mahmoud. How could you not? He was obviously incredibly talented and smart, but also by being in the room when business was happening. Yaro was able to learn how to make it happen himself.
Bob Rosenberg & the Lessons Learned From Running Dunkin Donuts
"Bob Rosenberg on dose of leadership, former CEO of Dunkin donuts. I am so excited to have you on the show. Welcome pleasure. Well, you got this new book coming out in October, round the corner to round the world, your lessons of that you learn running Dunkin donuts I love Dunkin donuts by the way I think copies outstanding pilot. Now, go through the airport I always bypass starbuck's sorry starbucks and I always go straight to Dunkin donuts that coffees just so good to music to my ears. You know I was reading your bio and it said you graduated from Harvard Business School. Told me this right and your twenty five and you became the CEO when you're twenty five is that right? That's correct within weeks of my graduation I had in my early career I basically virtually grew up. Over the store I worked in lots of different jobs within my family business, which is not call Dunkin donuts gone universal food systems and a variety of different jobs I went to hotel school and went into the army, and then went on to graduate school in. Expected to join the family business but Lord knows I had no expectation that it's twenty five I dad who is only forty seven at the time eighth grade educated Guy Returns to me. And asked me if I wouldn't take over the responsibility of CEO. At his business said the REF aching request and that one third few weeks to decide upon. But ultimately best decision I ever made man the yeah. Obviously a life altering one of those decisions in life that that. was definitely a y intersection the road, and you had to make a choice. You went down that path and there was no looking back. Once you did. But Man Twenty, five, I can't imagine you know that was almost twenty seven years ago for me just the the leadership lessons I've learned from twenty five to fifty, two AB. been. I can only imagine you with your experience it had to be a minimum exponential. So the type of leader you were at twenty five to when you stopped in one, thousand, nine hundred and what do you think the big differences were one of the things that was an advantage early on in the first soda, era I break the book down into the six areas that I that I see as the company history from nineteen, sixty, three to. Nineteen Ninety Eight. But in the first era, the big help was business school and it was there that I learned the language to strategy. I would love to say that I came to the job as a copy twenty, five year old into it. All right I think I matured and and made my mistakes and boy did I make a lot of mistakes over those thirty five years if that the thing that I think the grew was my emotional intelligence. To better understand myself an-and away to. Hopefully understand my teammates around me franchise on his and the people that I came in contact with end consumers. and. It was a journey I. Mean I would absolutely say that It's an old saying, but it's true in my case no, you can't put an old hat on a young body. You do have the Soda Lauren through trial and error and I think truthfully, in my case, the setbacks experience were more informative and more useful. than the successes in fact, a big mistake the after the five I five is of tremendous success, the second five years or really difficult, and it really came as a result of the success of the first five years. It became an impediment to future success in it wasn't until. Unfortunately almost led the team off a cliff in the second five-year era that I really began to start to learn the more effective lessons about who I was what my responsibilities were. As a leader. and. It came from a book of all places. Really my my soda moment transformational moment for me. He uses a book that you read was kind of a transformation moment, moment or. Second Year of a second era of Maya my stint as CEO, and after the first five years basically was under pressure to go publican. And when I came out of Business School Isaiah inheritance universal systems where eight little businesses it was it was excused chaos and fundamentally what the team did is we basically narrowed that down a one we had really been experimenting with far too many businesses and we say basically decided to exploit the the sort of the diamond in the rough that we. Had which was a bunch of stores in many cases, soul breakfast lunch called Dunkin donuts and made donuts and coffee, and we decided to focus on our core business and quiz extraordinarily successful and we went from one hundred thousand dollars in pretax profit within five to seven, hundred, fifty thousand and we went public because my dad I've been trying to sell the business. While I was in business school was unable to sell from billion dollars. It'd become the billionaire always wanted to be after taxes and that was the reason he turned to me I. Think at that Young Age is he wasn't quite sure what to do and. Put me in charge. Then I changed the vision, change the dried to keep up unreasonable injectors and. Drove the business off a cliff I was sitting there amidst. Stockholder suits, franchisee lawsuits reading a book called the best and the brightest by David Halberstam. And it was a book about the Johnson and Kennedy Administration of the Vietnamese War, and what he maintained was even though the administration are governmental Mister show run by these Ivy Leaguers the best the brightest our country at the offer they never really went into the hamlets and into the front lines where the war was being waged the final what the true story was while the con-, winning the hearts and minds of the townspeople in the leadership in the towns. And Halbe Sam said the great fault lie in the fact that our leadership. Suffered from what he called Hubris the Greek word for arrogance in sitting in that chair and I remember like it was yesterday I said Oh my God Halberstam could be talking about me. Yeah it was in that and I decided I. You know I was blaming Franchisees for suing us and. Problems that we're having in terms of Mike. One of my key executives left the company because he had lost faith leadership fellow had gone out of business school with. An and basically we convened our management team. We decided that as leadership we'd never blamed. Martine. Mates are followership take a hundred percent of the responsibility hundred other responsibility. And that we that invite, we apologize for the Arab always we invited franchise on his end to noodle out with us what we did on how we can improve it. We decided we're GONNA go each of us to visit a hundred stores a year each in order to touch the front is travel with the district manages visit the store talk to the owners. Get very important in we created an advisory council. So fundamentally, we did a one eighty in terms of our attitude about how were leaders particularly need what my responsibility was in it all came from that that insight that momentary it's insight from that one book that was transformation I love that story the book was called the best and brightest what what was the full in the brightest by David Halberstam? Think Nineteen, seventy-three, it's it's it's bestseller it was. An important book at the time. In my view, it's still a great management.
What's the best mic for podcasting?
"To, kick off his answer to the Cuny Wednesday question. What is the best Mike for podcasting? WanNa start by saying that I've done a ton of research on this topic. I've done a incredible amount of experimentation We've recorded over sixteen hundred episodes of this podcast and every single time record an episode. We try so many different things to improve the quality of the audio of the sound of the edit to continually be professional and compete with professional podcasts. So I'm not going to geek out on giving you all these different types of microphones you can buy on. Ana, give you the summation of what I've learned over the years. Will you really need to know what I would tell somebody if they're getting started with a podcast? Actually going to start somewhere completely different somewhere. The whole thing to do with microphones because you can have a state of the art microphone that costs five hundred dollars plus but it will do you. No. Good. If you're space is awful if we're you record is not a good space as conducive to recording, it doesn't matter what you're going to use to record for example, very court my podcast with a great quality Mike but There's construction going on there's noises dog barking I'm in a room with high. Ceilings and no installation that record is going to sound straight trash. Okay. It doesn't matter that you have a great Mike because your environment is horrible. Good news is that you can easily manager environment and make sure that wherever you record, it's actually conducive to agree recording. So one of the things I highly recommend is your cord either in a walk in closet or closet, the has shelving the bare minimum have your mic on a shelf in a closet and you record into that shelving into the closet. Because your voice is being projected towards the mayank into the closet, and because the shelving is kind of. Confined like into a box, your voice is not going to be bouncing around a lot across the room. It's going to be confined to the closet. This is sort of creating a makeshift soundproofing or sound booth. This is going sound a whole lot better than you just having your Mike at your desk in a big room. The next level up is to actually record in a sound proofing box. This is an actual Foam box has soundproofing that you place your mic inside. And you place that box into a closet or a shelf, and this really makes everything sound like studio quality. It's incredible and your listeners just using a portable soundproof box that you can buy Amazon it's about two hundred dollars, but it's actually worth more than the actual Mike it's actually going to improve the quality of your audio more than the actual. Mike. Itself I actually. Just. Looked it up on Amazon and the one I was thinking of a travel on, which is two hundred dollars. There's actually an alternative one that is in portable, but it's only thirty six bucks. It's called the choice studio sound recording, vocal booth thirty, six dollars. It's basically a box me out of foam where you can place your mic inside and talk right into it. That is going to make a tremendous difference. Now, let's talk about Mike's There are whole much of mine because I can go through but I'm GonNa give you two mikes. One that I would say is absolutely amazing for the price and you can actually use for all your podcasting with that soundproofing for as long as you like, and the second one is going to be if you insist on buying something expensive, this is the one I recommend. So the first one is the Audio Technica eighteen or twenty, one, hundred, it retails for about one hundred bucks on Amazon it's a be an xl are Mike, which is great. That means if it's used. To your computer and record using your recording software right on your computer or they're using quicktime or Daswani, or garage band or whatever using record your audio. Now I mentioned ex- LAR-. It also does acceler excellent actual cable that needs to go into a sound or quarter like a Zumra quarter if you don't own talking about then this is kind of technical and you may want to Google that but if you're interested in recording on your Laptop than you have to get a Mike, this be compatible which is this one, the audio tape, a tr twenty, one, hundred. This is why I think is one of the best Mike's you can buy period for podcasting for a webinars for calls. It's fantastic. It's really really an amazing quality Mike. It's on intellectual mish means that when you speak into the mic picks up your voice and it does its best of not picking up. Anything that's around in the room. So even if somebody's shouting across the hallway, if you're in a different room, it won't pick up
QAnon Goes Mainstream
"I'M GONNA, try to give an explanation of what Cunanan is and then I want you to correct me. Okay. So in on at heart. Even though it seems like if you get to Cunanan supporters in the same room, they're like economists to different descriptions of what the beliefs are. But at heart, this is about a ball, a deep state conspiracy. Of Child Trafficking and pedophilia. Hidden in tunnels. Yeah, yeah for the most part. You said, there's like a bunch of nuance disagreement even within that I've talked to Q. Nonbelievers who don't even believe that which seemingly is a quartet of it but then I've talked to some who that's only the tip of the iceberg and they believe all sorts of bizarre things that go way beyond that. How often do you talk to a Cunanan supporter and find that they? have very different views from say that the Cunanan Forums Online? They're really easy to find it trump rallies, and so I, went to a couple to report out a story that was doing on like what in real life Cunanan, supporters actually believe and yeah, there was there was a contingent of people who believed to a t and they were explaining to me like these extreme theories that like even I who spend a lot of time in these spaces just like I heard before. But then there were other guys who were wearing full Cunanan shirts who had like signs, and then you go up and talk to them and. They would just be like I. Don't I don't know about these pedophile rains underground tunnels, bump I do know that. Trump. Is a good guy and that he's t stopping corruption. So back in March recorded this explainer video. And you ended by saying that q becoming a mainstay and also fading from relevance. Months. Later, do you still see it that way? No no I don't. That was a really interesting period in Q. and I. IT looked like it was in stasis twitter mentions for we're down its main platform eight had been taken down. But I think that pretty much as soon as the coronavirus lockdown started, it came back in full force. If you look at things like Google trends but Kapiti page views mentions of like given unrelated terms on twitter and facebook groups pretty much around March thirteenth to sixteenth when the lockdowns kind of hit the United States There's this massive explosion of interest in Q. Online that really hasn't subsided since the coronavirus started. To what do you attribute the the change in the popularity of Cunanan A lot of people are saying it's because of the pandemic and people are sitting at home and spending too much time on their computers. What do you make of that theory? I think that that does. Explain. Some parts of it pretty well. Internet traffic is way up people were spending a lot of time on platforms where they can be exposed and led down different Hyun on rabbit holes people more atomised, never been because they're stuck in their homes and they feel alienated. But I also think to Cunanan has a bunch of different appealing points to it to different types of people that explain the current political moment for them really well. It also makes q a non a very diverse crowd. I mean, you've got successful people a African American like Isaiah Washington who has his own show on Fox Cunanan supporter correct. Yes, that's that's one of the new scarier developments is that. This was pretty isolated. I started like an extreme online, right. Then it sort of blossomed out through facebook and then youtube to sort of baby boomers sat who are less tack wetter and more prone to these things. But yeah now you have people like Isaiah Washington. Even online. You can see that it's catching steam in all these different areas like wellness ANTIBAC- people are getting really into it hippie new age people are getting are getting really into it. It's bringing in more and more people to the fold every day, and that's really concerning there are a number of not only organizations but experts who study this very thing conspiracy theories and extremism. You refer in your reporting to some of a Mike One researcher at Concordia University. Who says that the membership in Cunanan has gone from two hundred just over two hundred, thousand members in March two. Almost one and a half million as of last month But you also spoke with people who who think this is being overblown and I I wanna read back a quote from your reporting a political science Professor University of Miami who says quote I'm reading headlines from reporters on the tech beat that well are well intentioned aren't tethered to reality. What is your response to this idea that that this is just being? Blown out of proportion. I don't I don't want to like overstayed the sort of anecdotal evidence that we can look to like I don't want to say that that overrides data but like there's just so many things that are showing that. Cunanan, clearly, having uptick in even if that uptick is not that large and it is like pretty close to the polling results, it's still showing more than it has more and more power and more and more impact. They're getting elected to Congress in small numbers. They're going out and committing acts of violence they're influencing political discourse there harassing people like. I talked to a lawmaker California who's trying to introduce a pro lgbtq legislation. He got accused of being a pedophile. He is absolutely harassed like his family members of drug into the mix I, mean, try telling him that it's just a small movement lake it. This guy's life was like Tumblr for days after this, and this is why you've said that we kind of need to separate the size of this group from the damage that it causes. Right? Yeah I I think that both are important but like the real world impact that this happening more and more and more any influence on not explicitly Cunanan non-related spaces the Cunanan followers are having the potential impact on the Republican Party and Conservatives. It's like something that people are going to have to deal with that shouldn't be underestimated at all. Cunanan's jump from Internet conspiracy theory to real world threat happened quickly last year a follower of the conspiracy shot and killed. In New, York mob boss on Staten Island. His Defense Cunanan had led him to believe his victim was part of the deep state. In May the FBI labeled Q. On and conspiracies like it domestic terrorism threats. The fight against Q. might become more complicated as Cunanan supporters win political offices in August a Cunanan fan named Marjorie Taylor Green became the Republican nominee for Georgia's fourteenth congressional district.
LINK Is Back
"Why would you try crypto? Well, look at the end of the day it comes down to profitability liquidity. The volatility that we've got in this market is just insane. Now, what that means if you take ten tribes and you have six loses that six percent down if you're managing properly was to try to break even so you know you get stopped out the Europe percent loss the other to try that got go onto Mike one likes five percent. Which we nice very, very, very easy to do in this market, the other hit six percent. Now you go net Sarajevo gross eleven percent gained six, percent loss, yacht five percent. You don't tend to get numbers like that in traditional markets now that still gone on sixty percents, lose rights and the other twenty percent they is break even. So what I'm saying is if you work on the probabilities increasing in your five through these courses, you'll the potential is just. An. Almost so most guy. WHO In the market. Currently as way save but not a lot look. I. Wouldn't be surprised bitcoin continue on little to Saad wise run spoken of this quite a bit of liked and it is continuing not bad. It's not bad. It's holding around that eleven thousand mock eleven thousand be the new handle all night. It was still hovering around that Criollos I'm with these sought wise marketed one often does is it allows us to have opportunities to try for sats. Think. That's a worth much but I can tell you now the sats that I made when Bitcoin was at full thousand, five, hundred a now with more than double what they were of a bank two, thousand bucks them Oh it's now over two thousand. So as banking for the future profits, in Sats, is what I love. When I can get the mind with markets. saw that's where I'm looking at Bitcoin to the mom once I saw wise I'm just talking about the last few days rots in Sunday. A bitcoin at the moment eleven thousand, one, hundred, sixty, seven, standpoint, three today yesterday. It was also down point three so much movie Yes not much volatility not much to work with this Syrian. Now it did close the Dow up one percent. It's a three, hundred, ninety dollars and thirty full sentence down half a percent right now, a guy needs to push above the high that I'm looking at four a full. Coverage around around that four hundred, the last couple of days with exile play it did pull that yesterday two point nine on December list is keeping keeping on too much. Actually move it's had a booming move high. And You know a little pullback is it to be well, I'd sites to be fairly Wilkins it's at one point three percent now just under thirty cents twenty, nine, point seven and not much really. They've me to work with very similar on bitcoin cash. It was down yesterday three percent at six fifty is down point seven. Now, a guy, it just sort of slowly slipping off. And it's still holding to seven FAV old. Top Channel. Area, it has broken into these above walls does that all the continuing to kick off lungs? Like. Coins holding pretty well as well and we're looking at fifty seven dollars and forty cents down half of a percent wrought now at fifty seven, forty not macho guy and it's going to get above. Sixty dollars ready for me to have. The trend is explicitly backing. The gang may be interested once more. BITCOIN is vague is. Currently two, hundred, twenty, four, dollars sixty, it was down one point seven percent yesterday currently down point six the one in the top ten that's up right now in fact, these Donna. And look as much as it's not really that tradable for me at the minute I'll talk about you know. The contract to our does have a bit of a trend To something that would capture more attention it fourteen point four cents at the moment, and it has been sort of pretty comfortable consolidating over the last couple of weeks sort of between the high of fifteen five around thirteen or two cent range. I widened to save does have a big push hearts up point seven, three, all of a percent now. Bottlenecks also, yesterday it was up one percent, but it's looking really strong there on that daily kind of. The four hours consolidating at the moment not quota a level for breakout try just yet although very much trying it's hottest to do. So the resistance is around the rage twenty, full forty, five ish around that sort of region if a breaks above their them for sure, I'll be looking for opportunities where Bush is the pullbacks in the one hour and two hour. We my focus stand its down point three, twenty, two dollars and twenty four cents. AOL's holding above three bucks right now down point three, five, a percent yesterday it was pretty much flat on the Diet. and link yesterday had a great performance reading up six point, two, three percent which full it from the day before eleven percent at link Look as a watch list It's a fantastic looking trend and I'm waiting for pool bikes on that four hour as timeframe of choice, full cradles. So again, like I say there's opportunity at the. End of the market's getting normal bullish

When It's Time to Go Back to the Office, Will It Still Be There
"Let's talk about these couple stories regarding employees getting back to work in physical offices because the the new York times one has the more prominent headline quote when the office is like a bio hazard lab and then the Wall Street journal says you know has a board but nine one no more pizza Fridays companies find new perks for the remote worker so to slightly different things that we're talking about here but first when we talk about you know what businesses are doing to try to maintain a safe work environment for employees number of different things being employed anything from construction of plexiglas barriers you know certain different certifications to sign in in the morning all kinds of different things in order to try to keep sick employees out of the office and healthy ones in yeah eyes as sourcing all of that but I would say you know if you're trying to measure the real impact of all this having that much more significant one that we're saying is businesses large and small saying we don't need office space anymore or at least we don't need to use it in the same way that we did my brother works for a company that just ended their lease and February or March and hasn't found a new office building and my brother my soon to be brother in law has at least running up in within the next thirty days and they had you know it is a small company I think it's only thirty employees their bodies business and there were not renewing right now that we probably need some sort of office space but definitely doesn't look anything like what we had before Mike one of the things I'm curious with regards to a potential glut of office space and I don't know the answer this do you do you have any idea how easy it would be or how difficult it would be to convert portions of that things like condos and so on so forth currently pretty darn difficult I mean not not impossible it's just you know zoning laws especially in this part of the country take a long time to change now things can change quickly in times of crisis and so perhaps that you know that that changes but I would think that it takes a couple of years before that realization would set in if it actually comes to pass that businesses choose not to have as much office space as they previously did I would think you would take a year or two for that realization deck to come forward and present itself and then actually start converting them over to something else Abigail we certainly do have a a housing shortage in this part of the country at least family after that have you talked to any business that has said to you I'm looking for more office space right now no not a single one it in that's what's interesting to me beyond just the ones that are saying well we don't know what we're gonna do and you know we might take less or do we have a lease expiring how many times do you normally hear you know businesses still saying yeah we're growing like a weed you know we we need more office space even the ones that are growing now a lot of them are saying yeah we're growing a ton but we don't know if we need more space I think that's what I find really interesting is even the businesses that are growing in hiring right now aren't talking like they need office
"mike one" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Dot com here's your host Mike one three do telling me I'm telling my room back there how to do his job right I turn on my microphone you know I think he knows what he's doing right you know what he's gonna do once we walk out and I like I just look at the little red lights not on that that's when I know it's time whiney guy well we've already you know I I'm not gonna lie I don't think we've ever on the show or on a real social relieved talked about at the luxury real estate market but we've had so many of you already text the word luxury to four one one ninety two three so we thought well let's just spend a few minutes on it and and for refer one the term luxury and what defines a a luxury home you asked a hundred different people you're gonna get a hundred different answers than in the way I see it traditionally a a luxury home is anywhere above a seven hundred fifty thousand dollar home however though and you could make the case that it is lower than that because it's going to require what's called a jumbo loan so anyways it's a lot of money and it's a big house and as you were saying earlier rhyme that was that was the market that that that we did see and took the biggest hit a nationally would cover nineteen rolled out and now we're we're seeing it bounce back but he you know not every boy again I'm kind of what I'm working on a show here I got a fair how to how to put this just because somebody your aunt Ethel cousin Eddie has a real estate license does not mean that yes they can sell you a luxury home because I got a real estate license doesn't necessarily mean that you would want to talk to them because it's it's a whole different animal and I think right now Ryan there are a ton of great opportunities F. we have catered listeners who are looking to get into the luxury division and and your I'll personally would talk to them and help them through the process so those things usually start on the financing side we do see a great deal of our luxury homeowners buy with cash so that's that's easy conversation because we don't have to we don't have to if you've got two million dollars cash my personal phone number is but the the idea is that we don't have near the hoop so we got a jump serve right when when when we're talking about jumbo loans are for doing subordinate loans or any type of creative financing that I've had to do in the past with with with our higher end products but the inspection process the contract negotiations all those things they're way more in depth scale they require a little bit more care because it not not that we don't really value our our other for the folks that are not in the luxury market there's just not as many moving parts quite frankly and when we're doing what we're doing with the home that's it at seven thousand square foot as opposed to a two thousand square feet yeah things things can get mast and that's it's really important that no matter what we go through that we are extremely detail oriented and that nothing gets messed and and then on on top of that identifying value so the biggest trouble that I see for most people that are in the luxury market are having a difficult time determining value because quite frankly most of our properties and the luxury line they're so unique and that's why it's so critical to make sure that the person that is helping you knows how to negotiate knows the ins and the outs and understands the trends understands can you know as a firm understanding of construction has a firm understanding of contracts and and and the ins and outs with what's going on with the actual market itself because it is its own little economy okay it is it will it has it has very little to do with what's going on and and the and the sub seven hundred sub sub seven fifty range because it it does it is a different animal and we want to make sure that we do have those conversations and and my of my famous line there's no such thing as too much can indication so we need to we need to really dig in and figure out what's going on educate each other on what your expectations are and what what actually can be provided all right if you would like some more information about buying a luxury home and like to chat with Ryan I about that are you gonna do is talk to our luxury two four one one and ninety two three that's a luxury two four one one ninety two three and one of us will personally connect with you I the last thing I want to say about it I I think that for me I you know this covert nineteen is eventually going to blow over and not only are things going to get back to normal as far as the real estate market goals and and anything under five hundred thousand under four and fifty thousand dollars it's done like I say it's back to normal because there's really never shifted to significantly change for about as we said earlier the luxury market took the biggest hit the luxury market will bounce back the luxury market will be as strong as it was for me if you've got the cash and you've got the ability to enter in the luxury market I right now I think when it comes down to residential okay commercial whole different animal different ballgame but what comes down a residential I feel like the luxury market is really offering the biggest rate of return for people's money because I think you're able to negotiate and get a real real really good prices for us we know how to find the properties and which properties we know are going to be more inclined to to really what we'll end deal and then when the market does get the full you know you know back to full swing you could be sitting on hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equity in a very short period of time that's my personal opinion Emma and and to kind of keep going off on that one my opinions are for the for the non luxury market never really going to see the the paddles they have the chest as soon as the quarantine band it's been lifted but for the luxury market I think it's going to happen a little bit more one entertainment and and media starts really getting wheels under it again so when when we have and that's why I think today's a good day right yeah because once that happens and the petals of hit that shafts then okay you have do you have all the confidence in the world but so is every other Tom Dick and Harry and now all of a sudden you're gonna be spending money on inflated prices all right again if you like some more information about the process yeah and having a conversation with us about buying a luxury home well you gotta do is text the word luxury two four one one ninety two three that's a luxury two four one one ninety two three are right we got about four and a half minutes okay I promised our listeners we jump into riken omics can't break that promise so knock yourself out buddy okay Reaganomics this idea is how are we going to retire that is the biggest most important question that we are getting terrible answers to lately and that is because people have not figured out what they're going to do because our four oh one K. or their pension or IRA is not performance so what we've done as your real estate wealth managers as we have created this system in which you are going to be able to buy six homes within ten years you will sell one of those six homes you will live in one of those remaining five homes and the other four are going to be producing income both as passive income and as income appreciation and also buy downs from the tenants that you have in there paying off your mortgage paying into your real say four oh one K. program right and it's just it's been a fantastic system that we've created and we've had a lot of people have some great success stories so that is the quick bird's-eye view of what riken omics is and we want to have a conversation with you and talk with you about the details of what that looks like and how you can do it because I know how to I have heard what I'm saying right now twenty years ago I would have said Ryan you are outside of your mind but I'm telling you if you if you eat this elephant one bite at a time like we've created the system to do you're gonna understand it you're going to be a believer all right if you like some more information about Rican omics elect to have a conversation with one of our real estate wealth managers at the recon group I gotta do is text word wealth four one one ninety two three that's wealth at two four one one ninety two three also got a copy of our free book your personal guide for buying a home I think it you hit the nail on the head because I think for a lot of people one of our listeners we have listeners right now that have never owned a home can I get you guys are full of it yeah right whatever I six homes in in ten years and and millions of dollars worth of a you're talking crazy talking crazy another people probably say the same thing only our wives know how crazy we really are but outside of that you know we sound crazy people think it's crazy but when you sit down and you text the word well to four one one ninety two three in a separate ten to fifteen minutes zoom call with one of our real estate wealth managers we outline how you do it how you leverage the mortgage industry how you build well how you can build a a real estate portfolio worth millions of dollars so when you do retire one day you've got a great great foundational piece T. retirement account and it it's it's we have the system we have it laid out would love the opportunity share with you the other the other big question there are the other big demand that I've seen is people that want to be able to pass on a legacy of wealth to their kids and their grandkids and and help them achieve that financial independence that is going to allow them to not have to go through the worries and woes that they have gone through because there were so hard wired to just work hard save work hard save work hard save and if you're lucky enough you might have saved enough that you might have a couple of years of happy retirement and that's all she wrote all right this is been it's a business and time as always if you like to join our online community of entrepreneurs were like minded people come together share ideas and get together network all you gotta do is text the word time two four one one ninety two three that's

"Yeah Andy. I think in Mike just to your point. I think you said it without knowing you said I think we gotTa Change. People's perception of what a first aid kit is right. It's not it's not as well. That's the thing there's this idea of and I swear to God. I'm an name my autobiography cotton balls and BANDAIDS. But like there's this there. There are plenty of companies. That are happy to take your money to give you a big box. You know white box that says First Aid. That has cotton balls. Bandaids and lights. Yeah taped you. That's an I always ask people when they start there. I Care Class. I'll say who had who said I eight or WHO's had CPR. Most people raise their hands. And then the next question is how many people remember any of it and none of the hands go up and then you ask comedy maybe a few and then you say how many people actually used any of it no hands go up and then and then you break it down we. Just we've sort of imparted. This false sense of security with a bunch of crap you know and and realistically you know what I think you guys are both getting out and what we all kind of know is that you know. Carry stuff that's going to actually make a difference a true life or death difference right the whole thing for state it's great coarse but very little of it has anything to do with actual mortal injuries. Right sticks plant or you know poking stick in the eye like that's great but nobody dies from that and we just sort of need to reconsider in light of current events in light of you know if you're my daughter is in elementary school. And she she. She play acts with her grandparents. You know like teach school and she sets out like their daily routine and the first thing she has written on their play. School agenda is lockdown drill. And then it's like recess and singing and whatever whatever but like kids are now thinking right and and we are. Unfortunately you know maybe the maybe the cards left the stable for us. But if that's how our kids are thinking we need to start figuring out ways to give them the right information so if they're already thinking about lockdown if they're thinking about get out if they're thinking about avoid deny defender run hide fight or whatever it is then. Let's continue giving them useful tools and stop selling a box. Cotton balls mandates. I tell you what so absurd roof quick so I think you know for a long time. Maybe when we were kids that you can't learn this whole may be first-aid stuff and but I think it was a Lotta feel-good sort of this. The cotton balls yet stuff a bit but now I think we have the data that suggests. Hey here's what you're most likely died from in. Here's how you stop or save a life then so we understand that. Hey most likely it's going to be some sort of bleeding and beyond that you know we're looking at some SORTA airway issue or some sort of you know something like a new method developed may develop into attention and so those are the big three and so that's that's really what I tell people to You know when they're building some sort of again. That's what you need to address it. Mike I want to jump back in India. Hey you guys are guests. I'm I'm not going to be an impolite host by I apologize but it just you know again.

How to Build a Successful Membership Site
"All the way from Mucosal upon Tynan Yorkshire England. Mike What an absolute pleasure. It is to welcome you to the show and thank you for being this week's guest expert and mentor. Thank you for having me on the show. What an introduction. I love that all the way from Newcastle England. Well we gotta put you in the right context because otherwise people might think you're just next stole but since we're an international podcast and I love it that we interview people from all over the world. Mike. Let's get down to basics. What exactly is an online membership site? I looked at your frame that as getting basic because this is a. It's a funny question. Actually because the term membership is just so broadly applicable net flicks is a membership local associations. Aw memberships seal allow those types of businesses have online elements but in the online business world when people talk about membership typically. What they mean is some sort of combination content and community and usually the content. Is Ill learning? So it's usually educational content on a specific topic. Usually run by a recognized expert or authority in a field. A mass usually supported by some form of community so everything from a discussion forum by private to paying members through to private facebook groups and so on and so generally there's all sorts of Mina variations of that model but it's usually a combination a learning with community what you pay for access to those education materials and also a little bit of access to a particular experts. Aurthority that you follow and you want to lend from. How do we know when it's the right time for us to create membership site and even if it is the right time? How do we know that it's what we should be doing much of a as down to knowing your audience and actually speaking to audience so if in hearing that you're thinking well what what audience than that's probably a sign that it's not yet time we always recommend people built some sort of following online and by following really you want that to be people on an email list so people who maybe visited the radio book by? Noyo audience our office so they've Regio Book that maybe visited your website. Hops you publish articles all your podcast on Dave. Subscribe to your email list because they want to hear more from you. That is generally what you want online following and I would say once you got a few hundred people who are demonstrating a desire to him on to learn more from you beyond what they've read your book beyond what they've read on your local listened to on your podcast. That's usually a sign up. The timing is right you also needs to look your mock in general and what sort of problems exist out there. That either aren't being solved by the books by courses by online programs. Oh just on being solved either extensively not all in a way that reflects kind the current state of your particular industry. It's really marrying a demand and the need within your market with a following that you have built up whose needs allying with and where you can serve them further within. So can I know my membership? I think if you haven't got a following usually you're going to find it a lot harder because you can have the best membership in the world but if you've got nobody to promote a two and you haven't got a kind of a focus group in sums of an email list you can get feedback from. It is going to be much tougher. My. Let's say we feel that it's the right time to start a site now. Let's dig down to the basics about. How would we actually go about getting started? Wow that is a another big one I really. I think the first is talking to your organs really drilling down into the coal problems and it's important that emphasis on the word comb if you ask a bunch of people. Hey you know what you need help with right now. China's AW allowed. The answers will be fairly superficial. Don't actually get to the heart of problems. They are having what obstacles they are facing. One of the goals. What are they designed? What's the bigger picture for those people really really isolating? The problems that you can solve I think is the first point and I was free so says a lot of ideas there to flesh out of viable idea full. What could become? You'll membership committee next stage of that really is to validate your market by selling them. Something so the May have already bought one of your books if not try and sell them your books. If you can't compel people to pay ten dollars fifteen dollars for a couple your book save. Go five hundred people on a name list and not one of them is willing to work with ten bucks for one ago books then you probably going to struggle to sell them a fifty dollar a month membership. You kinda need to validate the market both in terms of do people how problems that I can solve. So that's the first two is the solution that I could provide to them a good fate three. I compel these people to actually put the hand in their pocket and pay me to solve their problems and the best way to build a piece of the equation is by selling them. Something smaller I determine if they were buying market to determine whether you even like selling things online to this audience and to verify your understanding of the problem and solution match is actually accurate. That idea validation is definitely the most important step before you. You even get into looking at what you'll membership by consists of and how you might handle things on the technical. And all that Sorta Mike one of the things that POPs into my mind is that people are not necessarily sure what that core issues are frustrated about certain things or they feel. They have certain problems but they may be superficial to would actually the real issue is. What are your thoughts on that? You've got to ask them more questions. I can't remember if it's six sigma with the idea of a five wise. I think this is completely ripping from memory but the notion that you have to ask at least five. Why questions to probe deeper and deeper deeper was your number one problem right now and someone can give you the answer. Okay well why is not something that as impeding your progress and from that answer Biz? Another Y and there's another white and you have to keep probing Rothman taking I onto that again now. Obviously that requires more than just kind of a blanket. Approach TO GATHERING FEEDBACK. It requires more than simply sending an email out your list saying complete the survey or hit reply to they say mail and tell me what the number one finger struggling with right now is arranging to get on the phone. Get on a zoom coal. Get ON SKYPE WITH FIVE. Six people who kind of match the profile of what you believe to be your ideal customer your ideal member and having those conversations having those deeper conversations and asking questions and listening not leading them towards essentially kind of just giving you what you want to hear but really gets to the heart of it you say. You're thinking of starting up a membership to help aspiring office to keep a topical example. Then you might be looking for feedback on obstacles. People are facing and getting their book south on so you know somebody might say okay. Well I'm with my at just get a finished on. I really struggled with writer's block fantastic song points to be able to just probe deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper to find where those routes problems are and the more of these conversations you have. You would imagine certainly if you've kind of got consistency amongst the people you're attracting your old. You'll start to see patterns emerging from that you'll have a wealth of information to them build on when it comes to figuring out what the real struggles what the real obstacles. What the real things get in these people's way and how can I create something that takes them through that journey guessing through those obstacles ensembles
The 14-Year Active Duty Veteran Turned Epic Fantasy Writer
"Active that the United States Air Force. And and thank you so much for your service and the work that you've provided for us. It's it's wonderful to have you with us. You've been serving under the air force special special operations command and then new. Got your degree. At the Korean class at the defense language institute. Foreign language center in Monterey. Earning the Korean consul-generals award for excellence. And you did something that is highly unusual. You were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as well as several countries in Africa. And tell us what you did when you were in Africa with tablet, please. Absolutely. So one thing that not a lot of people might really realize about deployments is that once you're done doing the actual work that you're needed that you're needed for sometimes you actually have have downtime, and there's not a whole lot of options when you're in especially, you know, countries like in in the horn of Africa, where I was where your your internet and TV options are actually pretty limited. So one thing that I started doing to to pass the time was grown up reading a lot of fantasy CS Lewis Jared Tolkien stuff like that. So I thought to myself, you know, maybe a good use of my time would be if I were to start writing a fantasy novel much like, you know, some my heroes who actually both of those off authors that I mentioned just now also were fought in World War One. So you know, what I'm doing isn't necessarily new. It's just part of a new generation of writing while deployed. So you wrote you wrote a book. On a tablet. While I did while being deploy how long did it take you to write the book and tell us about the book, and where it is today and. Absolutely. So it's called gift of the shaper. And it's actually my first Mike first attempt at at at at a book. And it took me I'd say just about two years to to write the whole thing then that coming up with the completed manuscript going through editing making small changes to the plot. But ninety five percent of the book was just like you mentioned written on my on my tablet on the touch screen. No last night, even, you know, a detachable keyboard or something because that was just the the tool that I had at my disposal when I was deployed and after a while I just got used to using the touchscreen so much that I it didn't even occur to me to use. My. You know, my my laptop or something to to start writing. But yeah. So it's called gift to the shaper. And it's it's a an epic fantasy. So, you know, you're thinking like game of thrones that kind of stuff, and it's about a young man who finds himself dragged into a war between two sides. A now one side wants to free their God who's called the breaker of the dawn and another side wants to keep him imprisoned. And they're led by their goddess called the shaper of ages, which I actually derived the name of the book from a gift of the shaper, which was basically the shaper, you know, giving giving her power to some of her followers. So that's kinda how I came up with the name and the book is getting rave reviews. So good for you. Now. Thank you. I appreciate that. Tell me a little bit about what's life? Like now that the book is done and. You're back here in the states. Yeah. So I actually it turns out that writing is something that I I really enjoy. I'm very passionate about it. It took me thirty odd years to figure that out. But once I did I actually found that it was something that I was good at. But it was something that I really enjoyed doing. So when I got home, I decided, you know, what I I have this first book that I've written and like you said it gotten good reviews from people they actually really enjoy the book.
"mike one" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI
"Later today. Mike, one of the many things the president talked about in his state of the union address to evenings ago was the inbred. I don't remember the exact terminology, but all of the investigations and stuff that's going on. Evidently, no one listen because the Democrats started a new one. I think they picked up the gauntlet, Charlie. Adam chef and Nancy Pelosi magazine waters and a few of them are bounded determined to get to the president's tax returns. No matter what it takes. And so, you know, a lot of people like in the investigations that are going to happen now to some of the house investigation into Hillary Clinton. We're going to get a whole lot of time wasted and a whole lot of nothing happening. And that's yet to be seen with the alleged or anticipated investigations into the president his business activities and his tax returns. But this is the payback this is the consequences of losing the house. And I for one wish that we the taxpayers could make it known that we don't like it when either side does it because that means that they're not doing what they're supposed to do. Well, if the Democrats want the president's tax returns, I think in it appears to me that it's obvious that they think that there's something wrong. Wrong in there. Don't we have an apartment that's supposed to take care of that call the IRS. Well, the IRS has them, but those are private you can't just get him. There's no. What if the president was doing the Democrats, obviously think the president was hiding something doing something illegal? If that's the case is that not the job of the IRS to find that out, and it's nobody else's business. Well, you're one hundred percent, right, Charlie. But that won't stop somebody from using a vindication or at least vindictive behavior in order to attempt to embarrass the president, or at least distract him from his agenda. And this is what the the politics of personal destruction is is now ending up here. And I'm not a fan of it. And I I agree with you the IRS if there was something wrong. They would have noticed it. They would have flagged it, and we would have known about it. This is a waste of time. All right, and please I apologize for not being able to keep track because it's just moving so fast. Are we now looking at the possibility the fourth or the fifth person in line in Virginia because it seems like everybody. Who's in succession for the governorship? Scott some kind of allegation against them. Yeah. It's like a scandal. Congo line going on in like that? So the governor's in hot water over his yearbook. And maybe his abortion comments the Lieutenant governors in hot water over this now, very graphic graphically described alleged sexual assault. The attorney general says he dressed as Kurtis blow a rapper when he was a kid, but it wasn't racism. He was honoring Curtis below. And we could end up with the the speaker of the house who happens to be Republican which scares the crap out of the Democrats being the governor, and Charlie he was elected on a coin flip because there was a tie. So the governor of Virginia might end up being a guy who got their unequated flip. Wow. And here we go again, Michael Cohen's house intelligence testimony delayed again. Yeah. And no shock here. I see I thought we'd heard that this was going to be delayed anyway, but Adam Schiff announced yesterday in the interest of the. Investigation. It's been postponed until the end of the month. And it was a very brief statement. Now, he was supposed to be behind closed doors on Friday, and he's already admitted to lying. So his credibility is at large. But I don't know if we're going to get anything out of this than trying to make the president sweat some more. So this goes back to our first topic of time-wasting appreciate the update you have yourself. Great day, the bureau palca podcast available for you later on today. Still have that.

Federal Reserve, President and President Trump discussed on WSJ What's News
"President Trump has not been happy with the course of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, and he has stepped up his criticism of the fed and its chairman. Jerome Powell Mr. Trump made his latest comments in a White House interview Tuesday with the Wall Street Journal and joining us now is one of the journal reporters. The president spoke to Mike bender. Mike, first of all, was the White House interview with the president strictly about the fed or did he touch on other topics? This was one of the wide ranging interviews that we've been able to do President Trump over the course of the last couple of years. It was a half hour in the Oval Office, and it was wide ranging. Anything was fair game to ask. We spent quite a bit of time talking about the death of the journalist in a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey. We talked about the fed for quite a bit. We also touched on taxes, Michael cone and a few other economic issues as well. He said about chairman, Powell that quote, he almost looks like he's happy raising interest rates. Yeah, yes. Pretty remarkable thing to say. The way we kind of got on that topic is. We just ask them a big broad open ended question heading into the midterms. He's made the economic growth. One of the most important issues in this election, and I just ask them point blank, what? What do you see as the biggest risks for the economy? Right now, as answer was at a single answer, the fed and we dove into that quite a bit. And what he's upset about is you takes very personally his economy. Yes, it's his economy. He talked about, I have a hot economy going. He talked about growth as in my numbers. He c- he compared it to growth under President, Obama referring to it specifically as a competition, and that these rate increases which we've seen a handful of this year who's quote was they, they make it impossible to compete, and he was talking about competing with Obama. They're not with China or Japan or Europe, although obviously that that is that is significant concern of his. So in other words, Mr Obama was boosted by the fact that there were lower interest rates are no interest rates. And his economy is being held back by the fact that interest rates are. Rising. That's right. And he wanted to spend a portion of our interview talking exactly about that and sort of imagining what the economy would look like right now, if the interest rates were at or near zero, like they were under Obama. Now, of course, there is sound economic theory about why the fed is raising these rates. They've been forecasting that they've sort of previewing these increases for quite a while. And I also asked the president that why do you think the fed raising the rates? And he paused and looked at me and said, well, you know, disguise was supposed to be a low interest guy, and he turned out not to be so his. His answer was not about economic theory. It was it was sort of that he had gotten duped in in picking Paul. Okay. Yeah. Did he indicate that he wants to fire Jerome Powell? So we obviously we asked him that and the law is a little murky about whether the president can fire the Federal Reserve chairman, previous presidents have inquired and previous White House attorneys have said, you need a significant cause other than you disagree with policy.
