"Mary gave us on with Brian Williams, and they had a really difficult time at math proving my point again. That stupid smart people are the most dangerous people in the world. He may have read a lot of books. They may have solid achievement, aptitude in their lives. They may have scored well on the s A T s. But at the core, they're really not that bright. You doubt me? Check this out. You see it as a possibility. If he wants to spend a billion bucks beating this guy, he could do it. Absolutely. Somebody tweeted recently that actually with the money he spent, he could have given every American a million dollars. Let's put it up on the screen when I read it. Tonight on social media. It kind of all became clear. Bloomberg spent 500 million on ads US population 327 million. Don't tell us if you're ahead of us on the math. He could have given each American $1 million and I've had lunch money left over. It's an incredible way of putting it. It's an incredible way of putting it. It's true, it's disturbing.

She thought pre calculus was hard and calculus was easy. I'm not a math major, but I'm reasonably confident that Bath is way way off. Way way off because you could give you gave each American a million dollars. I promise you It's not 500 Million, unless you think there's 500,000,500 Americans. I mean, that's not the kind of math that should be really complicated, but they couldn't quite grasp the whole arithmetic concept on the air. These are the people out there clamoring for critical racism theory and more. Again proving to you the dangers. Stupid,

We've learned so much information within the last 24 hours. The suspects have no criminal history. They're not involved in any gangs. The gun was legally registered to the male suspect. He purchased it legally as well. Uh, and the suspects apparently altered their appearance a bit, but they didn't exactly go underground. In fact, on Sunday, they went to eat sushi and the police watched them. But the cops didn't want to make the arrest of the restaurant because they didn't want to cause a scene, So they waited for them to leave. They followed them home. And that's where they got them. It sounded like an accident. Like all of a sudden, and then it was crazy screaming. This is Julie, who didn't want us to use her last name, describing the moment that she says police moved in and ended the more than two week manhunt. Arresting her neighbors Marcus Aires and Wendy Lee. We absolutely believe that she was the driver and that he rolled down his window and extended his arm out of the car and fired around from a gun.

From Frying Chicken to Working at Google With Danny Thompson
"Hey danny thanks so much for coming on the show. Thanks for having me. I'm so excited to be here. And i'm a big fan of the podcast. I've been listening to for a couple years now so very excited to be here. Oh well thank you so much. Of course. I gave you a longer introduction before were chatting but could you just tell us a bit about your story and what was happening in your life before. He started learning to code absolutely. I was the reason why i got into. Tech was because of a rapper. This robber invested several million dollars into a tech company. And this kind of blew my mind because at this point of my life i was thirty years old working in a gas station frying chicken and i found myself at a foregone in a road at this point and i said if i go right i'm gonna be in this gas station until the day i die or if i go left to make a change and i don't know what it is just got to do something different. This time that i saw this interview. And he's being asked and he's like why did you spend several million dollars into a tech company and he said i'm learning how to cope now. This blew my mind. Because i never knew someone from my kind of background could ever learn how to cook. My perception at the time was coating was for the in the scientists of the world never for an average individual so he's learning how to code and i'm like why is he learning. Obviously he's not learning how to code because he wants to become a developer and the reasoning was not that he's going to become a developer. And give this million dollar rocker right but it was. Why wouldn't you wanna know how the thing that you touch. Ninety percent out of your day how it operates like why is the extent of our knowledge when it comes to a computer opening a browser opening up youtube dot com and watch some kathy heels and so he starts learning how to code and sorta why and i said i wanna know more like. Why does my laptop cost two thousand dollars. Why does my smartphone cost fifteen hundred bucks. And i started how to and it was never with the idea of. I'm going to become a developer. That came way down the road. It was more long idea of. I'm gonna make a website and it's going to be the best website in the world and it's going to have all the stuff in everyone's gonna want to check it out.

Has anything happened to. Egon tweets by the sec added. The short answer is no There's a lot of back and forth between the sec.

Employers have to go re tweets but only when they have to do with production refinances. But that doesn't seem to have stopped him here. I mean sec's only recourse. Would be to try to go back to a federal judge. See if the hold him in contempt or relitigate this whole thing you know get rid of the settlement and try to try to get him in trouble for that original for twenty tweet.

Then you're tying our hands behind our back you'll make it just that much harder for us to land some of these attractive opportunities benefit at american making the case directly to shareholders and this is a new phenomena effectively telling shareholders. You need to give the right or the access to be able to sell more shares. That would happen in twenty twenty two. This goes back to an explanation. Explains what we talked about on the program yesterday about that and hold investor connect idea. Which is he needs these folks to give him authorisation. They're out of shares. The shares can be sold to the public as of now so they can't raise additional money that they are asking for five hundred million additional shed digital shares. The interestingly you remember two days ago. I'd said one of the reasons they were doing this. Because they were out of shares one of those shares are i thought they were out of shares and i think the market but they were shares. Was these these shares that they ended up selling that we're supposed to be used for their incentive plan for employees that had been put to the side so they've actively said you know what we're not gonna do that and he made actually a great case on youtube to the shareholders.

"And there's this back and forth negotiation of down to twelve million right so this guy stuff apple happens. All the time in. These guys are like effectively. You professional negotiators that kind of make the case to the ransomware people love. This is the amount of money that is it is worth for my clients suspend and therefore that is the most you will get and you know for twelve million bucks. Most of them will say yes. Wow last quick thing on that. it's all done. in crypto. there was no crypto with with this much harder yes. Bitcoin has completely revolutionized crime. So like fifteen. Twenty years ago it was really hard to make a living as a professional bad guy right like to steal enough money to be. A professional hacker was was quite difficult. And you'd have to hit lots and lots of smaller accounting to do some business email compromise. Get some wires and such. It is very very hard to get illegal money out of the financial system so when is at facebook we actually had a scam was very low tech. That stole one hundred and ten million dollars from facebook is because there's actually a department of justice indictment. Which is the kicker here. Which is the guys that did it again. I think they're the dog that caught the car. They were doing the kind of scam that you see all five hundred thousand dollars million dollars in wire. Transfers when companies pay their suppliers and they didn't realize as a player they took over the first payment facebook made to them one hundred ten million dollars and four hundred this other district of york. We'll get on the phone to judges will get on the phone. The fbi will get on the phone deutsche bank given the phone the big of cyprus who is the actual shout out to my people the actual recipient of the wire. They'll get on the phone because they're worried about their swift access and these guys are in jail right because it's super hard one hundred ten million dollars out of the banking system getting stealing hundred million dollars. Bitcoin is like a thursday right And that is the kind of the challenge here is that cryptocurrency has made it very easy for these guys. To take this money to launder it and it would be very difficult for them to operate like this. If it wasn't for that alex stamos is the director of the stanford internet observatory. That was so useful and interesting. Please come back anytime. Even when there's good news if you find some good news in your world send us a note. Yeah i'll let you know the first time.

"That's true. I think also for all companies. Nobody wants their email dumped out. So just like the sony pictures right like it was very embarrassing for people to have their personal amazon purchases and all of the crap they were talking about both internally and externally in the industry like nobody wants the entire world reading their email and so i think for effectively any company there are some level of embarrassment and risk from having david dumped out with. Was this an easy thing to do. Is this an easy thing that they're doing. And is it just that sort of order and decency prevents this from happening to all companies all the time. Well okay so it's it was too easy in this case so there's information coming out now. That colonial was deficient in a bunch of their security practices. Number of security folks. Have there are services that actually scanning tara internet and they're very useful in these situations because you can go backwards and say what kind of abilities of this company have and it looks like colonial specifically had some very gaping vulnerabilities that would have been easily exploited. That makes it too easy the other thing. That was too easy. Here was the shutdown of the pipeline. So emily we're talking about. I think this is the dog that caught the car a dark side. Kind of very interesting move so they have. They have a whole website. That's dark web site right. It's on it's on a tour hidden service so you can get to it with specialized software but it's hard to find out where it physically is located. Everybody knows they're in russia. But at least you know. They have a little bit of a plausible deniability stark website. And on it. They had this press release that said we are not political. We did not mean to cause any harm and effectively. We're going to have a better content. Moderation policy to decide who we're gonna hit in the future because dark sides. It's a little bit of a weird situation that it's not just one crew but they are a service provider to multiple ransomware crews incredibly complex ecosystem if ransomware as service and people don't believe that they wanted to shut down the actual pipeline so to step back a little bit companies actually make stuff and actually move stuff that have big complicated networks of systems that do things in the physical world. Those networks are called ot operational technology. All of the other stuff. That's just like getting business. Done the email. The billing systems the all the stuff that we use normally is information technology. The ot networks is often where people will focus on the security. And that's totally important but what this has demonstrated that organizations that make stuff or move stuff or do do very complicated logistics if their it systems are down they probably can't operate the ot it systems that tell people what knobs are you turning. What were we doing. And so if you can't talk to each other if you can't communicate and in this case it looks like if you can't bill your customers and you can't track what's going through your pipeline. Then it doesn't matter if the ot network secure. Because you have to end up turning off. And i think the dark said people didn't understand that and they're in big trouble like this is a big deal because it's like they have now been more effective than any terrorist. Group has in disrupting like american gas supplies for example. So they're very possibly going to see that they are going to get added to the same kind of list to which we add. They might end up with vaccinations via the treasury. The there is non negligible chance that we start rendition ing or even killing some of these guys right. Because there's not a good history of messing with america's oil supply for people. It's just it's not a it's not the kind of thing that we take well as a society and considering the political implications here you could see the entire weight of the federal government coming down at least people well. That's so interesting i had been thinking of. This is the kind of like medium level threat that in some ways is useful because it makes everybody wake up to this problem. Then you know hopefully tighten regulations make sure the companies like colonial. Don't have these gaping holes that you're talking about and it seemed in a sense you know chevette Shutting down supply for a week. The southeast of the united states is like something but it seemed less dire than the solar winds breach. I wonder if that hierarchy makes sense to you or whether you think like actually that's not a useful way to think about it. It means different things right. Like the silverman's issue seems to have had no physical impact like hasn't had any real impact people's lives but it's hard to tell what the long term intelligence at backed is of whatever the vr was able to gather during that period of time right. And so it's going to be hard to judge versus. You know shutting out pipeline. You have immediate. It's immediately obvious like but the truth is just like the rammer teams are causing more kind of human misery than most of these state actors. Right who are just stealing data again. It's hard to tell because you're talking about intelligence operations that we don't really know about we don't know about if any spies have been captured in russia and executed. And there's some evidence of this kind of stuff of a number of these chinese hacks were they stole huge amounts of data and it wasn't clear what the outcome was but things like american spy networks get wrapped up in such and so it's quite possible that it will take years. I understand what the impact of the operation with alex. You mentioned that apple still has an ongoing ransomware issue. How many of these other kinds of ongoing low fever or maybe high fever slow-burning ransomware. Things are there out there. I mean ransomware. Negotiations probably happen hundreds of times a week and there are professional companies that you hire effectively just like because of kidnappings you ended up with the professionals that you call in that insurance into the insurance companies often find and pay these people on behalf of the companies and they will come in and they'll look at the ransomware and they're like okay. How are your backups. What are your processes. look like crap. Okay you guys are in trouble. We gotta pay and they will handle the negotiations and be like. Hey it's bob from ransomware company. How you doing right because they have these relationships and into interesting enough so brian. Krebs is a really good journalist in this area and in his blog they talked about it and the go she asian between dark side and the different company in which they ended demanding thirty million dollars..

"Hackers have used a ransomware attack to shut colonial pipelines fifty five hundred mile pipeline that supplies much of the east with petroleum products. They used ransomware supplied by an organization called dark side. A lot of this is just gibberish to me but fortunately this gibberish is about to be explained to by alex stamos the director of the stanford internet observatory the former chief security officer at facebook internationally recognized expert on cyprus security gap best guest in these dark times so alex. Welcome back to the gabfest. Can you explain to us. What dark side is and is this useful to think of this. What's happened with the pipeline as economic attack or an attack on the united states or is it all inflated. Yes i thanks for having me back. I appreciate being on the fest or something. Horrible happens on the internet. So dirk is just the latest of a number of highly professional ransomware crews that are operating out of russia and some other former soviet republics that have been running rampant across the internet and attacking companies big and small so one of less discussed but more impactful cybersecurity. Stories of the last five years has been the growth of ransomware. Ransomware is a bad guy. Breaks into your network and they install software that one steals your data and brings it to them and then encrypt data in place and they send you a message saying if you want your data back and if you don't want us to dump it out on the internet then you need to pay us a ransom that ransom for small companies might be in the thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars for the big billion dollar companies will ask for thirty forty. Fifty million dollar ransoms. This has been hitting people at all kinds of levels most famously local governments local hospitals there at least a couple of cases of deaths that are assumed to have been caused by hospital networks. Being shut down school districts and it is a very very profitable crime because once you're in the situation that your entire network is locked up paying five million dollars to get back in business if you're a billion dollar business is probably actually the rational choice and that is what's happened here is dark. Side is one of these crews of very very skilled highly organized effectively businesses that are able to operate with impunity with coverage from the russian government for the most part and dark side is kind of famous for being a big game hunter so instead of going after the local mom and pops in retail and such they go after big publicly traded companies and ask for a huge ransoms. I thought it was interesting. The dark side seemed kinda sheepish that they had actually caused so much disruption like they seem to think like. Oh we didn't quite. We just wanted our money. I think there's a dog that caught the car on this one. Yeah i was gonna ask that one thing that interests me is the fact that as i understand it. There are federal regulations quiring better cyber security protections for electricity. Grids than there are for pipelines even though pipelines seemed like to me the same kind of infrastructure the same kind of situation where you have a company that has that's private the playing vital role in the economy. Do you think that this attack will change that and make pipelines Hopefully subject to the same kind of safety provisions for cyber that we have for the electric grid and then sorry to pile on the second question but are those provisions themselves adequate great question. So we've already seen some changes. So you're right so pipelines it turns out the cyber security pipelines is actually regulated by the. Tsa the same people that like to. I my kids when they when we fly through airports through to some kind of bizarre department security decision that was made decades ago since pipeline and other these other rules were created. We actually have a new agency called cisa the cybersecurity infra security agency. They're the ones that regulate in a bunch of other situations. And so i do think what we're going to see is we're going to see consolidation of these regulations because it really doesn't make sense for all these different agencies in the federal government to be running all these different regulatory strategies for different parts of critical infrastructure. Actually yesterday as of this recording joe biden actually signed an executive order. That's been in the work for months. That does a bunch of empowering of cisa it does not specifically one of the reasons they had to get this order out on getting bypassed by reality so you the executive order was started after the solar winds attack an attack against one hundred twenty other organizations that we talked about in december and then there was this attack against microsoft exchange servers that affected eighty thousand companies and now the pipeline so they finally had to get this thing out before history. Bypassed it so it doesn't mention pipelines. Expect we'll have another. Eeo that ends up consolidating pipeline security as to the standards. That is one thing that this starts to do. It really aggressively pushes for strong regulatory standards. in a collaboration between cisa and nist national institute of standards technology who are the people who set a lot of technical standards now. The mostly affects federal contractors. But i expect it will see more rules coming down. The pipeline so to speak for critical industry such as pipelines duration. Such the procurement power though is is a good piece leverage. Because if i'm the department of defense and i'm buying microsoft products. I have some leverage over them. So so a is that right and then be my actual question is if i'm a company and i don't have stuff that i really mind being out in public. I mean i guess this is like a hospital. What gets dumped out in the public could see how that would be. I guess it's personal information. Which is bad. But it's not. I guess what i'm trying to ask is are there certain kinds of companies that have data that that is not as valuable and therefore don't have to worry about this or right so it's interesting to at first ransom crews would just lock up your data. They went release it and then a bunch of people started getting better at backups. So effectively if you back up your entire network and if you have a plan you could survive one of those ransomware attacks and so now groups dark side are kind of double whammy in that not only have we put out of business but we will make your life hell by releasing all of this data. It is true that there are some industries where this is more sensitive so really famous ransomware incident. That's still ongoing. Is a different ransomware. Team broke into a taiwanese company that actually makes all foxconn chinese company chinese and taiwanese sorry company that makes all of apple stuff and has started to release the blueprints of unreleased apple products of the kind of thing that drives a company like apple insane. So far nobody. Neither apple nor fox has paid the ransom. But that's the kind of thing that would those are the kinds of people who really care. Also if you have private data and you're dumping private data then you could end up with a massive civil liability to all of the people whose david who is much larger than the ransom. And i think that's one of the calculations here like if you hit somebody who has state level. Ti requirements one. they'll have to do a massive disclosure if it gets dumped but then also they will face lawsuits from everybody and so yes..

"We're going to talk about whether unemployment benefits are discouraging. Americans from looking for work and whether we should be worried about the latest jobless numbers. Then we'll talk about vaccination wire vaccination rates slowing. Should we be giving vaccines to india. Should we be in fact vaccinating all the teenagers who are now able scenes.

Hack and its implications plus. We will have cocktail chatter. And i know we don't cover celebrity news much. Get best but i want to just flag one story. I for one of the guys. Maybe we're not surprised that the mediator in the kardashian west divorce is going to be none. Other than former supreme court justice steven brier brier worked in family law early in his career and apparently he spent some twenty twenty when he was still on the supreme court secretly training as a mediator. So that's pretty cool western kardashian. According to reports. I read people. Magazine wanted a mediator who knew nothing about either of them which made brier an ideal candidate. That's probably true. That part that last part because none of the rest is true because brier still is a supreme court justice unaccountably so one of the many american women who have withdrawn from the workforce recently is cheney was balanced yesterday as house conference chair. She is one of just hundreds of thousands of millions of women who have left the workforce and the departure stealing congress day. I know it was like a line. it was a. She lost one jobs. Emily the fantasy part of the gap vessels continuing to log from my extremely literal brain. I couldn't handle it. Go up and i did appreciate his effort to try to get that piece of news in the conversation because it is striking that happened. Then we're not really gonna talk about it but it's exactly it's amazing thank you. Thank you in any case april job. Numbers showed much lower employment growth than expected. The economy added a seasonally adjusted. Two hundred sixty six thousand jobs which is much less than the million expected. It's actually not true. We added two hundred sixty six thousand jobs that we added turned sixty six thousand jobs plus the million or so that we are already always add more in the spring and so we would have we would have added even more had. We hit the numbers. That a lot of economists expected one of the things that were striking of course was that there was also a huge exodus of women from the workforce so men men in general did pretty well in the job market and their job market expanded significantly but a lot of women left so it looks like they're wide variety of factors at play in what's going on. Women are opting or compelled into family care because a variety of reasons but in part because a lot of schools still are not fully open also. It appears that there are jobs that were appealing to people pre pandemic that are no longer peeling because working conditions may be a lot worse or more more onerous than they were. But republicans have fixated on one reason. John and that is unemployment insurance that the extra unemployment insurance is disincentivising people from being in the job market. And that's what the problem is. And that's why the economy over the jobs didn't grow as much as people expected should. Should we take that seriously. There i talked to on face. The nation the president of the federal reserve bank of minneapolis and cash car. And he said there is some evidence of this. But i'm evidence of what there's some evidence that people are not looking for work as robustly as they would if they'd weren't getting unemployment benefits but that is just a part of the picture that the other bigger parts of the picture are two things one what you're talking about women on whose shoulders a disproportionate amount of the covid related. Care falls are still stuck with that. Everything from taking care of older parents taking care of kids. Second there's a lot of hesitancy and fear out there. The difference between the amount of money people have in their wallets and the amount of money they're willing to spend. There's a gap. They have a lot more in their savings council wallets. then they're spending and that suggests some continued fear about going out into the world. We also saw that the last quarter was one of the highest. I think on record for paying down credit card debt. More proof that people are saving instead of going out there and spending and that has to do with fear of covid not this question about unemployment. So it's a much more complex picture than people are making. It seem but as you suggest the reason it has political power is that it allows republicans to basically say this stuff that you've been pushing you democrats and the further stuff you're pushing as a remedy to cove. It is all misapply and there are a few republican governors who are saying they're going to discontinue the higher levels of federal unemployment insurance earlier than the legislation calls for say we need all these people back at work to have our economy at full speed again without any acknowledgement of the pressures. You were just talking about. And also the fact that. When i was reading about this i was struck that the The employers who seem to be having trouble attracting people back are in hospitality and leisure and these are really low. Paying jobs like people are not willing to do jobs that they don't think they're getting paid enough money for and the unemployment insurance benefits may be part of that calculation. Especially for family right if you. Your kids aren't fully back in school. You're still coping with various things you're not going to go and take that poorly paying job. Well maybe employer should be paying workers better to get them back like that. Seems like a perfectly acceptable. Even good bargain of getting low. Wage workers more money in the equation and these republican governors. Who are taking away. The unemployment insurance early seemed completely disinterested in that. So just to get in the specifics. There's just three hundred dollar week. Extra federal unemployment benefit that comes out of the american arp. The american recovery plan right and that goes until i think september that right yes and so re various republican governors the governor of arkansas for example proposing to and that early but it doesn't seem to have changed any the minds of any republican governors about raising the minimum wage in their states that it doesn't Be a groundswell of that happening. Because it's the more even just to allow the labor shortage to if it's even that in these particular sectors to play out a little longer so that wages rise naturally because employers are trying to attract back employees right like you don't even have to raise the minimum wage. You just let the market with these extra factors operate. The labor supply expanded in april so it increased by four hundred hundred thousand jobs. So if you believe that it was these lazy unemployment people not looking for job. You would jobs. You would expect labor force participation to to fall or stay flat now you could argue that four hundred thirty thousand in in the expansion of the labor supply should been larger because people were talking about a million jobs so you can maybe make that case but the labor supply did grow which is to say that there were people out there looking for for jobs. Which again you. you wouldn't expect it. This narrative were as virulent as it's being talked about the and a lot of the jobs that people are having a hard time filling jobs that are less attractive than they were a year ago or pre pandemic in the sense that they come with the way you have to work as perhaps mast in kind of place that is that you may not feel as fully safe that you are just uncomfortable. Uncomfortable close congested speed and that in particularly in in food service. It's not clear that for example the tip income is going to come back in and be as high as it was because the customers aren't necessarily back yet and so there are all sorts of reasons why someone might not take job at this moment when they might take three months from now when the working conditions better when it was clear that the customer base was there to sustain it. Emily i want to talk about this question of women leaving because it is. It's just dire right. Yeah i mean if you think that it's really important to have women in the workforce to have women have choices to work that are real choices supported by good wages and good options. This looks like real backsliding by the united states. And it's completely tied to the way we've handled school closures and care but families have needed during this period. And the women like you said in the beginning the one Part of the population where their job starts have just not recovered and that just seems totally. The one part they are the majority they are the majority of the. It'd be like say no people with the people who drive corvette so the one part that haven't recovered it's like this is half. The population women with children are the population and the employment sector..

"This is what makes lawrence story so important. It's the tug of war in action. Her doctors were there to give sadie the best care. The hospital was there to charge as much for that care as possible and the employer was doing everything in their power to avoid getting stuck with the bill. According to marshall's propublica ding dignity health self funds their benefits. So they're on the hook for bills like savings and even though they reported six point six billion dollars in that assets and twenty eighteen and pay their ceo roughly twelve million bucks a year when it comes to paying for patient claims. They're a little less generous. But here's the thing about the tug of war between insurance companies and providers. It's a long game. An episode three. We talked about the complicated convoluted process behind medical. Coding takes time to parse through all those claims and figure out who will and won't pay and in the midst of the administrative back and forth. The patient is usually the one left holding the bag. When the dust settles and don't forget every single one of us funds this system that's rigged against us with our premiums and our tax dollars and our copays and then nearly every attempt to reform the system ends up falling on our shoulders to policy solution set often. come like try to tweak one part of it in a small way and it doesn't it has not moved the needle so right now we've tried things like what if we put consumers into high deductible. Health plans Maybe that will create the financial incentive for them to be good consumers and make smart decisions. Theoretically right. I don't think i don't think it's wrong. The problem with it is if you only have information about your prices but you don't have alternative choices and you don't have quality information and you don't have any sense of what the a off of is on value these various services. You won't be surprised. Consumer small make excellent choices. You don't fix a wholly broken market by by like tweaking. One part of it. The whole thing needs you need choices. You need good date on quality. You need good data on value and you often need somebody to help People navigate these things and without all of that. We've just throw people into plants and we say now they have incentive. Let's see if the consumers can do it and then when they can't we say People can't be consumers and healthcare markets. Don't park and i'm like. I'm not sure we really tried it. But okay right. We can't say that markets don't work but we can definitely confirm that the current one is totally broken. Why normal markets function at their best when everyone has the same information when all the stakeholders share aligned incentives. But those things don't exist in america's healthcare market that's why healthcare is not a normal market and markets. That aren't normal. Can't drive competition or efficiently. Allocate resources like say four trillion dollars worth of resources and when a market becomes this dysfunctional hearts of us. There's families across the country. Who have been in my situation and haven't been so lucky to will come out on on the positive end of it and have lost everything today. Lauren enough distance from this experience. That she's just grateful to have sadie who she can now affectionately call her million dollar baby puppy out satie firecracker. She's super loud and outspoken. You would. I mean as a baby. She was always like very quiet and now she's just off the charts. Super independent wants to do things her way but very feisty and you know she. She definitely completes our family. Lauren will be the first person to tell you that. The doctors and nurses at uc irvine saved her daughter's life and were there for her and her family during their darkest hour. The question is should that ordeal come along with a one point seven million dollar price tag and should your employer be the middleman between your.

"Marshall allen the propublica reporter. We talked to you back in episode. Three lawrence story is featured in his new book. Never pay the first bill until he involved. Lauren was getting the cold shoulder everywhere. She even tried shaming dignity on facebook by posting a photo of the bell she got hundreds of comments and shares but zero response from her employer. Marshall is like. I'm going to reach out to dignity health's media team because i'm gonna let them know we're going to write an article about this and is probably not going to be very pretty so i think it was a day two after i got a call from the vp of operations for dignity and She called my cellphone phone and she's like. Hey it's so and so like I heard that you were going through this. And you know we're gonna we're gonna do it. We can to fix it like really and she's like yeah there were. You went through extraordinary circumstances. I'm like he. I was saying that in my appeals but anyway she was like you know. We're going to get you in touch with the case manager with anthem and we're gonna retroactively. Cover it like because you were going to get a bad rap because somebody was gonna tell the real truth of the story of hello human kindness. Dignity health did to their own employees like. That's what breaks my heart that they didn't reach out because they saw problem. It was because it was gonna make them look bad. Quick thing hello. Human kindness is dignity health's motto. We'll get to the irony of that and just a minute. But here's the thing that gets me about lawrence story. Who knows what would have happened. She hadn't connected with the journalist who had the power to publicly shame. Her employer probably what happens to a lot of people in this country. They go broke. And that possibility kept lauren up at night. I have worked so hard at getting to where i'm at today. I was a single mom for a while with my son. I went through nursing school. And i bought my own home but literally everything would be taken away from me. I'd have to file bankruptcy. My home would probably be taken away like all of those things where i did my due. Diligence i i did everything that i could or that i knew i could do so. That was like a harsh reality to kind of swallow to be like. Wow like i might lose everything. You've used the term helpless a few times as we've been talking. What does what does helplessness feel. Like in this situation. I think it was really hard when i would talk to people on the phone. Your pouring your heart out to them and nobody's really listening. It's it's just very frustrating. Sorry i don't get emotional but it's a lot to deal with have to be very mentally strong. I do have to say we have a great community of people around us and And family and friends who are super supportive and You know prayed for us and even donated money to us when we were in the nikki for so long. So it's it was alive. Dignities motto is hello human kindness. Yes When you got your job at dignity and you marched and on your first a proud about this this big exciting place joining and you saw those words what did you feel then about that motto and then now as you look back and you think about hello human kindness You had how do you view that modern now. Oh man It definitely made me chena about it It's a little sore spot for me but you know if you read our mission you know. We're we're a catholic hospital so we actually do have sisters there and to. We're supposed to care for patients to the healing ministry of christ. You know treating patients with respect and dignity and just giving them excellent care. And that's we've honestly try and do as much as we can so i like like is just as much care and hearts and blood sweat and tears that i put into the company for the six years at that time that of course they would help out and employees. Why wouldn't they. I'm one of.

"So i've lived in california all my life Currently i live in northern california. It's like a little horse time on in riverside county and we have like in front of our house a bunch of livestock. And all that so if you hear roosters in the background that's probably what it is who i have sadie. Who is now two and a half. She's our our million dollar baby. I'll be talking about And then i also have a nine year old son name jas. Lauren has been through a lot. So i was really surprised. At how smiley and upbeat. She was on her zoom call. She's obviously a really strong really resilient person but in this understated down to earth kind of way that might be because lauren has spent her life helping others in their times of need. I'm a nurse. And i've only worked at dignity health. So that's where i started out my career. I'm a charge nurse. Their dignity health is the fifth largest hospital system in the us and the largest nonprofit hospital and lawrence home state of california as a season nurse and mother who had experienced some issues with our first pregnancy. Lauren knew what to look out for. When sadie came along. I had blood pressure issues. Like right from the get-go her doctors weren't concerned until her six month checkup when her blood pressure. Read one. seventy over one thirteen for those. That don't know much about blood pressure readings that's a dangerous level and like. Oh my gosh you need to go to the er right now. And i was in the hospital for ten days They were just trying to keep me pregnant for as long as possible. But lauren's blood pressure never stabilized and as the risks mounted. Her doctors decided. They couldn't wait any longer. It was time to deliver sadie. I was twenty six weeks. And i had sadie. She was one pound. Six ounces at birth was not breathing on her own. She had a lot of complications when she was first born Within the first two days of her being born they said she had a fifty fifty chance of living because not only of her size but she was also bleeding in her lungs because they were super underdeveloped so she was hemmorhaging thankfully she pulled through that but she had to be intimated four different times within the first month of her life tummy. Learn a little bit. Just about the nick you well did. The environment look like how often unable to visit her so since she was born. I was still a patient myself for nine days. So i was in and out of going between the nick you in my room so we were able to be there and kind of constantly go back and forth and visit her so at least somebody was with her almost twenty four seven but i would say the first six weeks for her was probably her most trying times. It was when we went through the most difficulty. She had you know echocardiogram since she had laser eye surgery and she had you know all these complications in things going wrong in the other rooms. You're hearing one. Another baby is having difficulty or maybe needs to be intimated or something is going wrong. So you're hearing all that on top of all the alarms going off and bells so sadie loved to either. Go app nick where she would stop breathing or oxygen levels would go really low so you can. You're just watching the monitor and seeing like ding ding ding. And it's getting louder and louder and louder as levels go down along with sadie in the neck you. I think it was a hundred and five days so like three and a half months so we spent a few holidays in there. I literally can't imagine what would be going on in my head for one hundred. How survived one hundred and five days of that yeah You know the nurses were always very real with us like You know they have the call us a couple of times like hey. I think you need the come in like. She's not doing that well so at least they help. Prepare for those kinds of situations and really involved us in the care for her. So i think that helped to to know that that we were included in making decisions and what was best but honestly dislike the relationships with all her different care providers really kind of helped carry us through that hard time. You know 'cause you're going through so much in in you're dealing with this new trauma of having a baby who's possibly going to die or it's just a roller coaster in there honestly by this point. Lauren isn't total survival mode even while dealing with one health. Emergency after the other and the most chaotic environment imaginable. She's still somehow found time to contact both employer and her insurance company. As soon as i went into the hospital Knowing that i was gonna have to deliver her fairly soon Obviously let my manager know what was going on and also had been talking to a nurse through anthem blue cross. It's with the future mom's program. So i had already been in contact with them and i had called to let them know that i i was in the hospital and then also called when i had her And then i spoke to a case manager from anthem as well a few days after the birth to say. Hey you know this situation this. what's going on. She came here really early so my insurance company was aware that she was born. According to lauren anthem assured her that she and the baby would be covered under her employees plan with dignity so she naturally turned her attention back to sadie so a little over a month later. Uc irvine had said. Hey we're having some issues with trying to bill.

"Weeks laundry and that saved me like a whole weekend of like doing laundry And so you know if they didn't fold it the way i wanted then i would tell them how i wanted to fold it. And then if they didn't you know like they use like this regular detergent. And i'm like no no. I want the like organic environmentally friendly. Like stuff you know. So i would give them that. And here's what that does right. It turns into leaders when we have to delegate to other people tell them exactly how we want things done tell though when they do it wrong learn how to communicate with them. You know what i mean. That's what leadership is. And i i think the sooner that people outsource higher personal assistant send out their laundry. Start leg just having small tasks that take up. They're time outsource their to step into leadership gonna learn how to lead other people That management do have to kind of. Let go of like okay. Maybe it's not perfect every time you want them to get it like eighty percent of the way that you want it like eighty percent right and accept that as like. That's good enough so that you can be free to be out here being a millionaire. Shero i get that. I think the hard thing just personally is just like asking for help. You know because.

"Sport leagues in the world, there is a team with an that is offensive to a significant number of people. Wise that being. What would you change it? It's just a nickname and here we. We aw thirteen fourteen fifteen years later only now, Simeoni Way Greg, because the sponsors they've got involved because money talks only now is Dan Snyder looking to make the change, is it? Am I being cynical? Is it just down to the money or is it? Would you like to think more than that and given? What's been going on over over recent weeks and months actually there has been a bit of self awareness in a reawakening in terms of the the moral. Issues with with a team named the redskins. That's a great question. I think it's mostly it is you know about the money and I think a lot of things in sports. You know when we get older, we maybe we get a little more cynical. I don't love in any less. You don't love it any. Let's listen probably. Don't love it any less, but we realize sometimes what athletes take play for. Look at look at everything. They're trying to do in North America right now, and it's A. It's a trickle down effect in terms of the teams. The League needs to play to fulfill the TV. TV. TV networks content. The players want their cash. They want their paychecks I. Don't blame them for that you know, go get yours while the thing here with Daniel. Snyder is as you said You know the fact that it took to major corporation Fedex would whose names on the stadium and Nike To. Basically a twelve hour period last week to really push back on the nickname it's it's tricky. Right because you want to give them. Credits and I'm sure there's people that want to say. Where have you been as you said the last decade that gate and a half in terms of being active on this and look, we'll never get unanimity. We will never get. Get that on what offends somebody never so what Washington Daniel Snyder of done before is they found native activists. They've taken them two games. They've made a big deal at when they're on the road to play the Vikings one year, and they found people from the state of Minnesota. Who are native American who got in front of a microphone and said? We love. The nickname doesn't bother us in the lease, but we will see in this now with covert. Are we like well? This doctor said this you. Doctors are on the planet. Who couldn't possibly agree on you know a a vaccine could possibly re-treatment. Possibly agree on any aspect of this so? I you know you can't cancel everything you've. A small minority allowed minority are offended by but study after study not seems to have shown that natives in this on this continent people of indigenous heritage. They say it's a slur. You'd never walk up to somebody on the street and and call indigenous person or native, American or native, Canadian in my country. That were you wouldn't do it I'm not even sure you'd use cheese, and that's the big thing that will go. There are chiefs, but you wouldn't call somebody that is a nickname, and that's that may be the next moment of reckoning for the NFL believe it or not, as Dublin Back Patrick Mahomes team. Yeah, and that nickname so. I'm not a hundred percent. Sure that the logo is changing in the least I think this has look. We've a twenty four hour news cycle as you know. What sort of hot one week is not hot the next week and we stopped talking about it so i. think this is given. Daniel Snyder at and the Washington team some ample time to wait this out a little bit and come up with something that would be more of a proud name. Chicagoblackhawks said today I saw this morning. They're not changing their name. We haven't heard from the Atlanta Braves. We haven't heard from although the MLB looking at it, obviously the Cleveland Indians. So you know, I know that this is going to be as much of a domino effect in changing the logos at there's tons of college teams. Tons of high school teams on this continent that have been steadfast some changed some of not but that. Yeah The Washington nickname I'm I'm Sir sure? Although I saw entered Brandt differ yesterday on twitter I'm sure they won't play another. Another game even if they can start the season on time in September I feel confident that they'll keep the logo and they will get rid of the name Ron Rivera. Wants it. Players wanted it's uncomfortable for players to even talk about Rivera said he would be awesome if it could be done before the start of the season on the money tip, and it's the point you. Made elsewhere, but. The. Value the obvious revenue that can be generated by yogurt is -ation with an entirely new brand? Right so is gonNA. See upside from a business perspective in that. If indeed it is business that is forcing time to do it. In in the fuss by. Or they changed their name.

"So either way a big payday former homes, shirty solidity for this exciting chiefs offense is fighting chiefs franchise. That Andy Reid is got plenty of left in the tank as well say he isn't going anywhere. Those will be kept that together small business for me and we've talked about this a lot. Greg and it's like different situation here when you look at the level of steel and The scale of the deal. But? When there is a sure he in the front office whether it is on a draft, pick that other draft Nicks and other boards. They're reaching up here. I'm not sure if you assured that is your guy. You have conviction you go. Get Him to go pay, and if it's a receiver, the on free in free agency, and actually it seems like it's quite a rich deal. If you feel strongly that that receivers uplift your offense to the degree that you want, and it makes a Lotta sense doesn't matter to degree. Degree with the market says just go and do it and I feel that's exactly the same here that this is a play you can't deny is to only only keep that the chiefs, a serious contenders for the foreseeable future they are building. The foundations have an absolute dynasty. Hit the continuity with Andy Reid there they can keep the coordinates by and large together as much as possible Howard. White Lombardi suggesting this on his part about the enemy, and saying look if it's reads GonNa, stick around six seven years, and you say to be enemy mcdaniel stall in Foxborough you'll the heir-apparent just hang around that is that is a serious foundation for dentistry that the chiefs ability. That that's a big one. I'm glad you brought that up because I thought about that, you know Eric Enemies been really valuable that you and I are in Minnesota and we're watching and hearing from eagles. Players. Talk about frank, Reich at that point in time. I look you know they won. That super bowl with Nick foles The Eagles really struggled until the Super Bowl to put up points. They struggled in Chicago You know they handle the AFC title game. I suppose no problem against Minnesota but nick. Foles wasn't electric until he got that Super Bowl. Rank Reich had the. The two weeks. That design a game plan, so yeah, the offensive coordinator means so much, but yeah like there's just no other team outside of the chiefs. Now I could look at and I think you're you're you're you know you know it elaborating on it that the concept that I don't know how you don't think them in for multiple super. Bowl wits. It's a really hard thing to do because every time somebody gets. They're looking at Cam Newton team. Look at that team that went to San, Francisco, Santa Clara and play the Denver Broncos and Peyton Manning's lasts deprecate. Cam Newton's fifteen in one. He's A. He's a unanimous NFL MVP. They've got leuke three on the defensive side. They've got weapons of Gut. Receivers have very good defensive line. And playoff game since then, and obviously you know the story for Cam who who predicted that five years later that sort be run out of Carolina. You know with no real great alternative as a reference This isn't like Tom Brady taken drew bledsoe's job or Steve or Steve, young. Joe Montana being pushed out the door to Kansas City so Steve Young. So. Yeah, it's a cautionary tale to start thinking that you know this quarterbacks going to keep doing this. Rogers never getting back to a super bowl. It's been ten years since Aaron. Rodgers has played in the Super Bowl. When that comes out of my mouth, I kinda even don't believe it but Patrick. Mahomes is going to win. Multiple Super Bowls air for any read I. Don't know how he doesn't. Exciting Times. Let's move on stories. I want to get into and I'll get a wwl back again to lead into the next one. At Short, yours how great handle What should the eagles do with e Jax? What he said was inexcusable in something should be done, but I have no idea what he's of course referring to Sean Jackson the Eagle in his second spell team still. If not at.

"Hundred thirty million dollar deal. Cannella Alvarez had a three hundred sixty five million dollar deal with dissolve on. And the fact that Mike trout smash that as much as he did getting another sixty five million dollars plus on top of that just shows how good he is. This is a deal. That's good for both sides. He gets to be the highest paid athlete ever. The Los Angeles angels gets keep him in their uniform for the rest of his career. Okay. So I think the question a lot of people wonder about because of what was going on with Bryce Harper and his sort of recruitment of Mike trout, what impact might Harper and that whole situation have had on this deal. Not a whole lot trout is almost in a universe of his own. We're talking about a player and no disrespect intended to Bryce Harper. Mike trout's on a completely different level. This might be when it is all said and done the greatest baseball player. We have ever seen through his age twenty six season. He has more wins above replacement than anybody in history. That includes Babe Ruth that includes Ty Cobb that includes Mickey Mantle I could go on and on about all of the great players throughout the course of history. Mike trout has been better than all of them from the start. And so the Los Angeles angels knowing that they have Shohei Ohtani knowing that nineteen year old Joey Dell a star in the making outfielder who's going to be with the team at this point next year. And all likelihood I mean that is quite the outfield to form and quite the core for the angels to have and build around. So the other side of this though, is you look at trout and not to. Cash shade on him at all. But this is a man is only playoffs wants. No. He's only been to the playoffs. Once they've never as as I remember never wanna play off game. I mean, how does this kind of contract hamper their chances to win in the future? Or affect know. I'm not sure that it does. And here's why the angels have a three billion dollar television deal. Local TV over twenty years that is filling their coffers with money. They have stadium..

"Is you have. But I bet it was not a one hundred million dollar mistake. Several weeks ago when we were thinking about going to a hundred million dollars, and we had just kind of announce it to the world. And maybe even after a couple of podcast episode, come Allah. We were like, yeah, we're going to do it one hundred million dollars. I thought well what's gonna actually take to get two hundred million dollars? Like how much do we have to sell? How fast we have to grow? We're going to try to do this by twenty thirty. What does it really mean? As far as growth are we talking about tripling the size of the company every single year doubling the size? And so what I do. I sat down and I created a complex spreadsheet. And in the spreadsheet, I said well at the time where it will million dollars a little bit more now, but then it was one million dollars, and we had to get to one hundred million dollars, and we had eleven years, and I brought that up in two months SO, I figured well. If we increase by this much every single month, and since this recurring revenue issued add on top of itself. So let's say we bring say a thousand dollars in the first month will and the second month we bring in thousand dollars again now up to two thousand dollars the third month we bring in one thousand dollars third time. Now, we have total of three thousand dollars. There's a cumulative effect over time, and we had eleven years times twelve months, and that's too much math for me to do right now. I don't know hundred thirty two that's close. If that, correct. So we had a hundred and thirty two months to actually build up this revenue. So I laid out this big spreadsheet and. And I did that we needed to bring an extra twenty six hundred dollars in new monthly recurring revenue every single week in order to achieve a hundred million dollars at the end of that time period, and I actually publish that information. I think I did a podcast episode about it. And I was very proud of myself or calculating that. A some point. I went back, and I looked at it. And I started to kind of question the logic. And I realized I had made a mistake. I had made a big mistake. What I was doing was always adding up all of the money that we would have earned between then and twenty thirty so summing it all up equal one hundred million dollars. That's a lot different than earning. One hundred million dollars in your twenty thirty which is really the goal. The goal is not to earn one hundred million dollars in the next eleven or twelve years. Then there's a big difference. Matter of fact, in order to earn a hundred million dollars over the next eleven years. What that means is into thirty will be an eighteen million dollar company. So think about it this way say like a million dollars in two thousand eighteen two million two thousand nineteen four million two. Thousand twenty cetera Oli up to twenty thirty eighteen million dollars. When you add all that up for every single year. That was one hundred million dollars was the answer. I got and it was wrong. It was a big hundred million dollar mistake. When I realized that and recalculated the numbers were huge. It was something like there was so big that even save the file it was like fifty five thousand dollars a week in revenue or maybe per month. It was a big big way bigger number than we could achieve saw realize that model was wrong. I had made a huge mistake would also realize that is going to be very difficult for us to grow by having a linear amount of new revenue coming in every single week or month. The reality is there's going to be stacking affect if we bring in twenty five hundred dollars per week in new month recurring revenue which is about what we're doing right now that won't be acceptable in five years in five years, and he's be ten or fifteen or twenty thousand a week. The numbers all the numbers are going to get bigger, including how much we bring in. There's also going to be an inorganic component buying companies and foreign them into digital. This is way more complicated of a situation than I originally suspected. It's not gonna be just bringing the same on of money every single week for the next eleven years way, more complicated. I made a huge mistake. I don't know what the answer is yet. But I know that it's not a steady stream of income is going to vary over the years. Thank you for listening. I hope you heard something you can implement in your
