"Site from nine. Am to noon eastern four to five and then three to five eastern on abc. It's back together. Saturday also available on the espn app. Here's what nick. Sabin had to say about his young quarterback getting paid our quarterback and he's talking about bryce yawn already has approached ungodly numbers. It's almost seven figures and it's like the guy hasn't even played yet. But that's because of our brand david shaw knows. It certainly wasn't an accident that saving chose to include that little bit of information percival. Nick sabin is smarter than any ten of us in this room combined and so there's no way that that was just a throw in is to me. Nick wanted a plant. That and make sure people knew that. It's a great way to recruit people to come to which the guy hasn't started a college football game and he's already signed a whole bunch of deals to make money to me. I don't think that's what this whole thing is supposed to be about. I don't believe that that is true. Market value. I think that's alabama value. But that's not market value for an individual which was what this is supposed to be about more money more problems. Listen this locker room. A name image likeness when i say those words. How do you think it affects. What goes on inside a locker room absolutely more money more problems. You get a twenty year old in nineteen year old in eighteen year old and sometimes a seventeen year old getting six seven eight hundred thousand dollars. It's going to be a problem. Let me take y'all back to seventeen and eighteen year old days. When i was getting recruited by all the schools ended up choosing texas because it was close to home. There were no. there was no tax classes. I didn't know about taxes. I didn't learn about investments. None of that stuff and so imagine an eighteen year old with all this money. Do i think the players should get paid. Yes but you saw how. Nick sabin through this information out there. Not only because of the brand. But he said it recruiting some texas player. He said in. Texas talking to some coaches and quarterbacks and so we all know why nick nick sabin said what he said before. A high schooler about to be in college. It's a lot of money and that's a lot issues. One hundred percent. He knew exactly what he was doing. But here's the thing. Quarterbacks get the shine regardless so it doesn't matter you have to find a way to build that in the locker room regardless right but the best example i've seen is kenny. Pickett have you seen kenny. Pickett from pitt. You want you want endear yourself to your teammates and not 'cause that divide brogan is i deal with the restaurant in pittsburgh and guess what he did. His lama get to eat there every week for free. Gets you some of that. So you definitely have to be able to do to bridge the to as a quarterback you assume that leadership role and take care of your big boys and take care of your teammates but the shine has always been on the skill players and the shine will continue now. The money will come there. In the coach's responsibility with the players have to make sure that doesn't create a division to make sure everybody gets a little something something to be happy lost up. Listen it's a change but it's a change. It isn't going the way name. Image likeness is here to stay just like a lot of things. Nick sabin crazy like a fox. He knew what he was doing. We see you nick. Not about idea either. All right sam david. We'll do it again tomorrow again. Continued coverage as texas and oklahoma looked to join the southeastern conference. See you at three o'clock tomorrow.

Listen can they become a big brand and still bring in. Byu in boise in houston and smu and ucf then could still be the big twelve. But they don't have the they won't have the power they won't have the clout. I don't know if they have the automatic bid when all this is said and done so the big twelve as we know it is going to be no more. It's to me. It's a matter of where these pieces are going to end up going absolutely real quick response for all those chess players. You don't need a queen. All you need is a king and you could still be in the game iowa. State some of these other teams. Yes david smarter to leave. I totally understand that but also it's smart to wait as well. I'm not just. I'm not just going to let you win right. We're all competitors. No one's just going to sit here and let someone mopped the floor with you. You know what you want to play that game. Let's play and i have a contract so we're going to stick with that contract but but it's not as not letting win. It's no it's not about letting you win those about having a future about being proactive in going and getting your money going getting your future. That's what it was about. Well it is. It's about your future because it's about the dollars. And we know that in texas and oklahoma and nothing else if we can't agree on anything else they do have the dollars and it remains to be seen where they end up and imagine this guys. We can't get the three of us the two of you are we. You're not gonna get five people in a room to agree what's best in this scenario much less everybody else.

"Thinking about mack brown and dabo sweeney. Two of the premier coaches in college football. Both of them are not in favor of this team format. Some of them have talked to their players and the players are not in favor of this twelve team format. And so if i didn't have a seat at the table even though it may happen anyways i'm still upset and i'm frustrated by the slow. I need to pump the brakes. Slow down and really find out what really was going on over the last two years but with all due respect to out show and everybody from texas texas has struggled in the big twelve the btc you and company. So i know you're bringing in oklahoma and you're bringing in that brand that's done so well but it's not like we're going. Oh my god we got two guys that are teams that are going into college football playoff every year. You bring a powerhouse in oklahoma and you bring in power brand. Not another team that you're saying is going to be in the college football playoffs every year. So i just. I want to put that out there to out real quick real quick before it's pronounced out show for and we've gotta get that out. I support most. Don't hurt me the out. But i will say this. Oh you is the premiere brand name thinking one. Yes yes championships right. So that's been that's a given for texas when it comes to branding is the most valuable program in college football. And so you got the money and you got the winds. I'll take both of them. The agree well. All of that. And david. The other thing i will say. That's absolutely true. David pollack stop. That is that we will be talking about this every day. And there's a reason for that because the ramifications are far and wide it really will. It will affect recruiting. It will affect the playoffs. This will affect everything in college football. So take a look at this. If oklahoma and it still if oklahoma and texas get their way this is what the big twelve would look like with with those two teams out of the picture that conferences left with just eight teams. I always stay on top of the standings last year. They were eight and one in big twelve play. Oklahoma state baylor kansas and tcu some of the schools that will remain at least as it stands right now in the big twelve sam. We've looked at this from a lot of different directions. Pay and certainly we have talked about the perspective of the sec. And that of oklahoma in texas. Right now i want to ask you about the perspective of those teams left in the big twelve. You really can't just stand pat. I don't think so. Anyway what do you do if you're the remaining teams in the big twelve. While the first school of thought is that you would jump ship. You would abandoned ship. You'd find a new conference. You jump to the pac twelve or the big ten or the and that school of thought makes sense but in my time playing football i talked to a bunch of friends and i did the same thing they said. Hey play chess not checkers if the chess game is that the that oh you in texas think that the big twelve is going to disintegrate and therefore they'll be out of their meteorites and they can leave whenever they want to leave if oklahoma state who's upset at oh you right now if i'm baylor. Tcu you know what i might just do. I might just say you know what we're going to stay together as a conference. We don't want your seventy six million dollar buyout and sick with us for the next four years and let's see how that works for your the money you're trying to make i get you chess. Chess requires a queen and king and they just left that gone. They go into the sec. So listen this conference is in trouble. How do you salvage it. you can't remember. I was state's athletic director a couple years ago. Senate without a without. Oklahoma and texas. Were the mac like though the mountain west. That's what we are so listen.

"Welcome to a wednesday of college. Football live happy to have you with us san mateo. David pollack and heather bennett. I'm wendy knicks. Well another day another development and what should be a major conference shakeup across college football. The next step well. The fourteen current members of the southeastern conference are scheduled to get together. They plan to meet on thursday. The presidents and chancellors to talk about oklahoma and texas joining the conference now. Three fourths majority. That means eleven of the fourteen votes will be needed for approval. If it goes through the sec would become the first sixteen team supercop conference before there was any talk of. Oh you in texas though jumping ship and joining the sec. The college football playoff management committee laid out a plan for expanding the playoff to twelve teams. Now here's how that would work the six highest ranked conference champs. Make it as well as six more teams as determined by the selection committee the four highest ranked conference chance get a by and no conference would automatically qualified heather. I'll start with you. What's fascinating to me. Is that ten days ago ago we were talking about. The playoff expansion is probably the biggest story in college football now. It's almost taken a backseat but it will be affected so the question is how. How is it affected if in fact oklahoma and texas joined the sec. Well many i can tell you that. Cfp executive director bill. Hancock told me on monday that the timeline hasn't changed. That means they are still heading towards a late. September meeting where they're going to report back to the eleven presidents and chancellors. Who can change the playoff about their summer feasibility study. Here's where it gets interesting though guys the conversations now surrounding it as you saw that graphic the proposal includes the six highest ranked conference champions if. Oh you and texas go to the sec. The snowball effect leaves the question. Who are the conferences. Who are their champions. Is there a big twelve. Is there a big twelve champion. These are things that they don't know so while it's on-track for that late september meeting my sources are telling me the decision the actual implementation of it because of the uncertainty could be delayed definitely see a huge delays coming as well if anyone in the pac twelve the or the big ten. I'm frustrated right now. I wasn't involved in these conversations number one. It seems like there's a lot of behind the back. Maneuvering going on number two and number three though. I like as far as all conferences though. I may like the the additional playoff games in the additional opportunity. I need to go and decipher. I need to go and double check and look if there's anything else that we need to remove or add to this current proposition. So if i'm any member of any of the three major conferences that were not involved. I will delay this process as much as need. Be and what you see is also i hear you but a lot of people don't have the seat at the table for a reason and this ain't gonna help. I mean this is only going to put more separation when now you're becoming a league with even bigger brands even bigger voices even louder voices with more money. So we're gonna talk about this and we're gonna continue to talk about this. I feel like this is as big as aaron rodgers in the. Nfl is going to be every day. It's always going to be something. It's always oklahoma texas until we get the football. Well i can tell you guys that. Some sources have expressed some concern to me that if oklahoma and texas joined the sec. That twelve team playoff is going to be an sec. Playoff right you're talking about a ten and two. Oh you nine and three texas. They're getting in that thing and there's some concern that the will get seven teams in it some on the other side of express to me yet but wait a minute. Isn't that still better than a fourteen playoff. Where the sec is getting two or three teams in here coming from there but he even if and even just real quick..

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. I hear some good news. Let's go to cocktail chatter. John when you're sitting next to the pipeline that delivers you not petroleum products but direct line of whiskey. Straight from a distillery. What will you be chattering about well. My chatter is i'd like to think is an innovation in the form. I like to consider this certain. Was we've been doing the show for fifteen plus years and you have a new form of. I like to of this as a kind of a personal discovery. So i'm going to play something. And then that will be what. My chatter is about hit jocelyn..

"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. Should we be giving million dollar lottery prizes to people who get vaccines. Yes we should. Then we will be joined by internet security guru. Alex stamos to discuss the colonial pipeline. 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..

"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. I feel like i can do it all even though there are days worshiped like i'm just tired. Maybe i'm not the best mom because i'm so exhausted by uh things which then affects like you said like you're able to do all these things and then be like really present with kids and it's like after i'm busy and do stuff and you know and then it's like.

What's that first step for them to be like look by doing this. You can actually spend more time with them by doing this. You can set yourself up better. How'd you get somewhat encourage a woman or anybody to take that leap. Yes well i think to start. We have to kind of change our philosophy around parenting and especially motherhood because again right like so. We can't win as women right because not only do we have to be like super hot and sexy but we also need to do all the things for our children right and like. We're not good mothers if we don't And also do more with a cut coupons while we're at it right and so like that's these ideas about womanhood is and what motherhood is. I think we need to start challenging them. So for example you know. I don't do my children's laundry..

"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. Choose the other question because their names suggestions flying around that the red tells the it seems to be the favorites in terms of Vegas Dwayne. Hoskins likes that as well the red tails deriving. From the Amazon which was the African American Aerial Combat Unit..
