Ceo's entrepreneurs and marketers. I dig deep to uncover the real strategies hacks and tools to help you achieve your goals. And i'm your host dennis brown. Have you ever wondered how i generate thousands of inbound leads per year using linked in this episode is sponsored by my guide the ultimate guide to generating inbound leads would link in. This is the definitive guide on how to consistently generate inbound leads using linked them and social selling. So if you want a copy of that guy just send attacks two four four. Two two two with the word l. I. guide all one word l. i. Guide to four four two two two or you can go to my website at ask. Dennis brown dot com forward slash guide. Now what's going on with the show. Hey everybody it's dennis brown. I'm your host. And i want to welcome you back to the growth experts. Podcast the topic that we're gonna tackle today is what is nps. And how can we use it to grow our businesses. So let's start off from the top. What exactly does nps stand for. It stands for net promoter score which helps to measure customer loyalty and satisfaction with in your business. Now the reason why. I decided to tackle this topic and cover. This today is because i recently released a new sales accelerator program where i enrolled about fifty eight members in this beta program and after the program was completed i decided to survey members and survey my customers to try to garner some insights about their overall experience and as part of the program i incorporated the key question to determine. Nps which is how likely is it. The you would recommend xyz organization or product or service to a friend or a collie and people are asked to respond with a range of one to ten ten being the highest and most likely and ten being or one being the lowest and least likely so they consider eight nine and ten's as what they call promoters they consider sevens and eights as passive 's and anybody who scores from zero to six is considered what they call a detractor and once you aggregate that data and you have all those scores. The formula for nps is actually pretty simple. What you're going to do is you're going to take the promoters. Which again is the eight. Nine hundred ten. You're going to take the promoters percentage minus the detractors percentage which is going to equal your nps score right so for example just to try to clarify this with math right because it's not an exact science and i'm definitely not a mathematician so if you had ten people respond to the survey just for easy math and there were two detractors which were between zero and six on the score rating that equals twenty percent our detractors and if you had six promoters which are again eight nine and ten's that would equal sixty percent so at that point you would put the formula together you would do sixty minus twenty which equals a forty. Nps so in this case tells us the higher. Your nps score is the more likely that your customers are to promote and recommend you your products and services to their trusted colleagues now. The definition of a good nps score varies based upon your industry whether you're in b. to c. or b. to b. but ultimately my research found that a score of zero to thirty is considered good. A score of thirty two seventy is considered great and a seventy plus is considered excellent an top notch. Now any score below zero would show that. There's a strong strong need for improvement. So now for the my sales accelerated program. I was able to gauge the nps score and believe it or not. It came out as a ninety one point five which of course we were really excited about and kind of blue our mind particularly as we roll out this program on a larger scale but the key here is not just the one time measurement right. It's not a one time. Measurement it needs to be a continual an ongoing measurement. And then what that will do two things number one. You will see the trend is your nps score getting better or worse and it will allow you to gauge. If you're going in the right direction if you are doing the right things as well as what you can do with this information right. So a part of the survey after you ask them the one to ten rating on the likelihood of recommending the product or service to their friends. You might ask a couple of very simple follow up questions right the first question you might ask as the reason for the score. Because now they're going to give you some a little bit more qualitative information. They're going to tell you why they scored you a three or why they scored you an eight which is really really important. Data the you can gather to improve the overall program and secondly is there anything specific that we can do to improve the program so those are two really important questions to follow up the nps score question which is the reason for the score and is there anything specific that we can do to approve the overall experience now. This data is where. We're going to have something actionable designed to help you improve number one. You're nps score which will in turn improve your overall customer satisfaction retention and long-term sustainability so regardless whether you're in the product business the service business you're in b. b. or beat. Btc if you don't know your nps if you don't know your net promoter score us this lesson. And i strongly suggest the you reach out to your customers and your clients past present and future and try to understand exactly what their net promoter score is and even more importantly those follow up questions to create some actionable action items that you can use to improve the overall experience so.

How Blackjack Player 'MPS' Got in the AP Game

"Our guest is blackjack player who calls himself mpc s. Nps welcome to gambling with an edge. Thanks for having me. So how did you get started in. The ap game yeah. I was in the bahamas on a business trip. Just looking for somewhere to have dinner and the place that i happen to find was in a casino and i'm walking and i was. I was never a gambler. raised conservatively. Gambling is bad and it just never appealed to me. Because i don't like losing money and my thought process was that's what gambling is but here i am at this casino somewhere in the caribbean and i'm walking across the gaming floor and i see this beautiful blonde at a blackjack table and i had less than zero interest in the blackjack game but i decided to sit down and to shoot my shot and so i sat there and you know i had a little cash on me and i bought in and i had no idea what i was doing. I always took insurance. I had some terrible hits Some terrible stands as well and yeah. I just happened to get lucky and i won four hundred bucks but actually i didn't get lucky and ended up going to eat dinner by myself and as i'm eating dinner. Something that one of them said stuck with me it was. You always have to do the same thing on sixteen versus ten. But it doesn't matter if you hit or if you stand. And i remember thinking that can't be right like there has to be a correct way to play And it can't be a factor of what you've been doing previously and anytime i didn't know it but i was thinking that there has to be a basic strategy and did Peach my curiosity a little bit. And i started poking around online.

Jeff bezos law lost thirty eight million his divorce thirty eight billion divorced and he made it all back in a month may thirty five billion in one month. What does this tell us about america. Gentlemen it's worse than that. We've had one individual. Gdp of hungary to his net worth since the first virus. You on mosques just in time for him to peace out and moved to taxes so he doesn't have to pay taxes. We've seen billionaires go from one point nine trillion and wealth of four trillion.

One percent are living best lives virus and that some be minute we see a lot of the we actually see places that went out of business by myself. Some of my favorite restaurant. Hey i drive by. And i wanna cry. Because they've been there for a log gone forever but the people who did if you're in the sit on your ass. Look at a screen business. Amazon apple google facebook right. They made their now worth twenty one percent of the whole economy. There we used we talk about the s. and p. five hundred it's the s. and p. seven there's now seven companies that have percent of the market cap amazon's since march has added more market capitalization than all of european retail. We have effectively four companies. That are so dominant. There's more we've been overrun. There's more lobbyists fulltime lobbyist in washington working for amazon than there are. Us senators there's more people working in pr and calms at facebook. Manicuring in march and cheryl's image than there are journalists at the washington post. Yeah we are so beyond any sense of balance in our economy. The eco-systems out of control. We absolutely need to break these companies up. Yeah it's almost like we're going to step ahead. I'm old school that stepping on a. It's almost like the way that you said there bill. It sounded nefarious. Almost like they plan or something you know not that they did of course but they took advantage of it but they took advantage of there's almost like an inevitability of this kind of progress. Let's let's call it. You know where how all that money just starts flowing in these these same directions. No matter what happens to the economy. It all keeps flowing that way but can ask this one question. When i read this about the amazon apple. Google facebook twenty one percent. I mean it was written. I forget where i read it. Maybe you yeah. It was written like oh my god. Twenty one percent of the economy four companies. Yeah but i was like. That's so bad. I thought it was eighty quite frankly. I hadn't read that. I mean the biggest four companies. Who really i mean this is. What's propping up. America as the rest of his goes to shit Is that such a big thing that those the four biggest companies are one fifth of the economy pennzoil. Not that alarmed at do we want one company deciding ninety three percent of the time when we type in overthrow government whether you get Instructions on how to build a dirty bomb or voter registration. Should one company control those decisions. Ninety three percent of the time should one person control the algorithms to decide the content that the southern hemisphere place. india rec- should one company effectively control ninety seven percent of all increase in value of all retail.

The largest business in the world is us healthcare. it's seventy percent of gdp its prices. Keep going up. it's nps keeps going down.

The ps four also shipped. Four point five million units in its launch quarter amran. There's a lot of places that we can start here. Where do you wanna go so a. Ps four is going to be very helpful. Like because piece for is what one hundred fifteen million units now so around there. Yeah yeah so. If the ps five hits that we're at the point where almost every playstation console has sold over one hundred million which is incredible ridiculous in like great for sony. This is not to impugn the ps five. Why obviously supply. Our demand is far outstripping supply. Why like what is it that people desperately want to play on the ps five or they want to own a ps five.

Creativity in your Home

"I want to think about what it means to be creative. Within the walls of your home as well as using creative decision making to morph your home into a true expression of those living there and as a result a highly functional home that is aesthetically pleasing to you in an article titled the five habits of highly creative people on martha stewart dot com ashley page explores the meaning of creativity. So i wanted to read you an excerpt from it. Understanding the meaning of creativity attempting to define creativity can leave you. More than a little stumped. It's kind of mysterious. You know what it is mostly but you're likely unable to describe it if someone asks you to. It's important however to understand the essence of creativity in order to hone it. The interpretations vary but danny gregory author of art. Before breakfast a zillion ways to be more creative. No matter how busy you are defines it as creating your own order. Creativity is the act of shaping. The mush of the world around us into something he says. I'm not talking about getting compulsive with a label maker and color coded files. I'm talking about having a vision of what you want things to be like and moving toward it. We live in a natural state of chaos. Gregory says which is why your desk may be messy or your calendar filled with scribbles. Creativity is sorting through the calamity. According to todd henry author of the accidental creative. How to be brilliant at a moment's notice. Creativity boils down to a simple game of solutions. Creativity is problem solving. He says a designer sees a problem and solves it visually. A poet does so with words and an entrepreneur. does it by creating a business that meets a need. All of these are creative acts. It's a common mistake to confuse. Creativity with art. Henry explains and this may paint a damaging picture of your creative self. It's a shame because people think they're not creative simply because they can't paint or play music he says in reality. Anyone who has solved problems regularly is exhibiting creativity end quote. I love this sort because many people choose to live in a space that was created for the person before them because they don't give proactive thought to the puzzle of the home. They're living in and then they settled in and forgot to make it. There's but their home never feels good and they aren't able to put their finger on. Why maybe it's because you're living in someone else's space if you haven't touched every surface and thought about all the bits or if you look around and you can't really tell much about yourself or your personality by the walls the furniture or photos you haven't made it a priority. Either you make it a priority and make it an emotional energetic and physical space for yourself or you. Don't your space can light you up or make you feel stagnant. You live there. You make the decision. Nps by making no decision. You are actually making a decision to not pursue your most genuine life. Your most genuine expression is saying no. Thanks i m not important to me. Everyone has experienced different hardships and challenges in their lives. Some far more extreme than others and those stories of hardships and how you elbowed your way or in some cases army crawled your way through them to come out on. The other side is riveting. We can all identify with struggle and often that struggle is. What eventually leads to strength to resilience and to creativity.

PS5 Hands-On Reviews: Positive First Impressions From Japan

"Brit. Let's kick off the news with his. Five business tape as. CAS So. This the hell kind of accent was anyway this comes through my nps five hands on preview show games console dual citizen more. So Japanese youtubers recently had a chance to go hands on the playstation five AV watch was one of those Japanese publications that was able to test out the playstation five and even though Sony still wasn't willing to show off the PS fives you, I. We did learn a couple of interesting facts. One of these is that Sony made the decision to make x the standard confirmed button for all regions, and if you say X is cross I will. Find you and it will punch you not too far. I don't want to hurt us only know it's wrong. It's not cross I. Digress, and the past circle was always the confirmed button for Japan North America, and Europe X was always chosen. It was also noted how quiet the playstation five was an action, which makes them very happy which will be a welcome change from how some of the most taxing games the PS four sound a bit like a jet engine. Furthermore Eighty Watch mentions that the dual sense buttons also make less noise when press as opposed to the dual shock for. Speaking of the dual sense for Gamer gave us a glimpse of how it's New Light. Bar looks with various colors including blue red, green, and purple. We also got a good look at the PS five hardware itself and he's preview show up close images of the PS five vertically and horizontally. Shit's getting real Andrea. It's getting real. Bread, it's getting so real taking a sip of my coffee. Sorry I I, muted myself there for a second. So this is a little bit of the video that came out of Japan that we have been seen circulate around the Internet I. Do think it's not surprising that they decided to go Japanese influencers. I would've liked to see them go with a wider scope maybe some of the creators from South America maybe some craters in Europe obviously some craters here in North America as well but again because. Somebody's always been favored because they are Japanese company obviously, not surprising. But what did you? What did you think anything kind of? Like take you. For a ride all expected. Yeah, I mean, it's all expected. It is interesting how Sony's handling their preview coverage as opposed to Microsoft and we've talked about this because they only have two days apart with their launch date. So you think then again, like you said Sony is going to Sony. Sony. Doesn't really need to do a lot of share. Real, they don't have to but the one thing I, thought was kind of fun that gave me a little a little giggle was the fact that they're making the X. Universal Button now to clarify this is just for the systems I'm sure the gains in Japan will still have the circle. Any x like what they have done because I played a game of what was it was recently, there's an old gay, maybe it was legend a dragoon on playstation and it's that thing where circle is there confirmed button at access your back Button and oh man that fucked me up. That's like muscle memory that you can't unlearn with a single game. So I I thought that was just kind of a silly thing but it's cool that they're doing it I guess I just feel bad for all the Japanese players that are going to have to try to relearn their button props.

1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens

"So my episode today. is about the nineteen eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption. So now, we weren't alive then even though we were not alive, then it was you know years until Jillian. Many years. Until we were born. We are in our. Mid Twenty. S. So we're very youthful. Yeah. We say what's a CD or whatever I don't know anything I couldn't even pretend to be a teenager because I have no idea went technology. Don T TIKTOK ON THE TIKTOK You know on the TIKTOK so. Nineteen Eighty Mount Saint Helens eruption has a lot of parallels to what's going on in the world today, but it's an interesting story. So to to start with for our non US friends and Non West Coast friends, I didn't know the details about this when I started researching it but Mount Saint Helen's which is known as a lot lot to the indigenous lets people and Lou wit. Luella cloud to the click a tat is an active stretch of Okano located in. Skamania. County. Washington in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States I. Apologize to the Washingtonians. If I pronounced Skamania county your Skamania county incorrectly. I'm sure I will get an email about this. Fifty miles eighty kilometers northeast of Portland Oregon Ninety, six miles or one hundred and fifty four kilometers south of Seattle Washington. So to get a sense of where Mount Saint Helen's is. If you're thinking of both Washington state and Oregon is roughly like. Square ish rectangular ish in shape with Washington, in the north and Oregon just below. Mount Saint Helen's is in the lower left quadrant of Washington state near the border of Oregon. and. She's roughly halfway between Portland, and the Portland Oregon and Olympia Washington, which is the Washington state capital. Okay. also relevant northeast of Mount. Saint Helen's is what's called Spirit Lake. And there's a bunch of little rivers and creeks in that area just due to like the geology of the area but almost directly north of the mountain is the north fork toodle river. River toodle or Poudel T. O. U. T.. L. E. Title River. So. Also? Mount Saint. Helen's takes its English name from the British diplomats. Lowered Saint Helen's is a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late eighteenth century The volcano is located in the cascade range is part of the cascade volcanic arc, which is a segment of the Pacific Ring of fire that includes over one hundred and sixty active volcanoes and for the record before the explosion mount. Saint, Helen's stood at nine, thousand, six, hundred and eighty feet high. So. They knew it was part of the ring of the ring of Fire Okay Yeah Yeah So. They knew as part of the ring of fire. It had experienced some activity throughout recorded history but it. It remained dormant basically from its last period of activity in the eighteen, Forty S and eighteen fifties. So by one thousand, nine hundred had been more than one hundred years before there was any like really significant activity that includes ash like little burps and like any kind of flow or anything like that. So. At this point people were pretty complacent thinking nothing's going to happen anytime soon it's fine like it's a dormant volcano for all intents and purposes until we get to the spring of nineteen eighty. Okay. So, there were several small earthquakes beginning on March fifteenth of that year indicating that magma may have begun moving below the volcano also just as an f. y. we talked about natural disasters on episode sixty one which was called here I am rock. You like a hurricane I talked a little bit about that about volcanoes in that episode. So if you want to refresh your memory about the basics of what's in a volcano check that out episode sixty one, it's very good. Thank you. So on March Twentieth Three Forty Five PM Pacific Standard Time, which everything will be NPS T. Shallow magnitude four point two earthquake centered below the volcano's north flank signal the volcanoes return from one hundred, twenty three years of hibernation. A gradually building earthquake swarm saturated area seismographs, and started to climax at about noon on March twenty fifth reaching peak levels in the next two days including an earthquake registering five point one on the Richter scale. A total of one hundred and seventy four shocks of magnitude. Two point six greater were recorded during those two days. That's a lot. Yeah. So geologists in that area are like look is no not a great sign. Initially. There was no direct sign of eruption but small earthquake induced avalanches of snow and ice were reported from aerial observations. So this mountain is shaking and you know stuff is falling off. It's not it's not nothing. At twelve thirty, six PM on March twenty seventh phreatic eruptions which are explosions of steam caused by magma suddenly heating groundwater. So that's like a quick like spur. Of, like Ash and Steam K ejected and smashed rock from within the old summit crater. Excavating a new crater, two, hundred and fifty feet wide. And sending an ass column about seven thousand feet into the air. So you yeah, knock. Great. So by this date along, east trending fracture system had also developed across the summit area. So there's cracks forming in the summit. This was followed by more earthquake swarms in a series of explosions that said ash even higher above there. And most of this ash fell between three and twelve miles from its fendt. But some was carried hundred fifty miles south to bend Oregon or two hundred and eighty five miles east to spokane Washington. So the ash went pretty far and those who were like what the What is happening here? So? then. A second new crater and a blue flame were observed on March twenty ninth.

Measuring & Managing Community Orgs, Developer Relations and Beyond

"Okay so wide Deverell. Going to be quite controversial here. Don't do it's. We are engineers that talk to other engineers and convinced them and help them to do stuff. Right. So if you're a star up, you need to choose between someone who developer relations and an engineer that is a hard trait, right? That is not easy and you only need to do it if you have to. So if you don't have to if this is a nice to have. Yes. And, we'll have a set of P is or maybe developers will help us then I really strongly recommend not doing any develop relations, develop relations expensive. It creates a lot of maintenance. It's a one way door. It's a decision that you can go back from. So if you open an API and then close it, developers will never ever trust you again. So remember it is a hard decision but. It's very empowering if it really drives your business so I would stipulate that more than ninety percents of startups do not require developer relations. It is required when you are building a platform when developers actually are the creators of the value of your up when they're your users at slack, we started without a develop relations and then we started building and develop relations, and the key here is that. We found out that the platform is the number one NPS net promoter score for using slack people were always super happy about the integrations when we asked him, what is the most important thing? They said they integrations when it wasn't number one, it was in the top three all the time. So the developers were driving a lot of value to our core audience which are paying customers. So how'd You have advocate C., which is the one too many. These are the people like me who speak on stages and say praise the Lord here's our API or here's our token in your case, and here's the use case, and here's the value. These are people who create scalable content they create the articles and all these other things that are super important to inspire developers. Then you have partnership engineering, that's the people who work with one. To one relationship, these are the people that you send to the top clients, the top developers and the first year I actually invested most of my money in partnership engineering I vetted most of my time in people who know how to do these type of relationship with top developers. Then you have enterprise architects. This is if you're doing an enterprise use case, these are people who go and do post sales support and make the usage wider. And then concentrator super important. These are people who write the docs for your developers. It is super critical to right the right docks I measured that's team by meantime to hello world. How fast is it for developer landing on the developers sites to reach success? Right. So that's I think the most important part of that team's job. The also are the voice of the developers develop relations. This is what you do. You Inspire developers you tell them what you've built and why this is important for them. So now they are inspired, then

Surviving Suicide

"Hey, there a warning before I. Start Today Show. We're GONNA. Be Talking about some pretty heavy topics. Today will be talking about mental health anxiety depression. And surviving suicide. Parental discretion is advised. In twenty, nine, thousand, nine, nearly eight, hundred, thousand people died of suicide. means, every forty seconds someone was taking their own life. And, suicide is a global phenomenon in certainly their populations, certain people, certain experiences that place. You at greater risk of suicide. But for every person who dies from suicide, it's estimated that there's another twenty. Who attempted suicide? That means for every one person who dies of suicide. There are twenty people who survive it. But death by suicide and suicide attempts are preventable. Now, that is not to say that you. You alone can prevent someone. From taking their own life or from even trying. But. It does mean that we've got to start having these conversations more openly. We've got to remove the stigma. GotTa be able to know the sign so that there's something we can do so that we can intervene. So today because of the pandemic, because of racial tensions because of the world that we live in today, suicide rates are higher than ever. Now, I've heard reports that suicides are up nearly two hundred percent so far in twenty twenty and I did my best to substantiate those statistics. Night can't tell you. I can substantiate the number of suicides is that much higher wouldn't surprise me. I just can't substantiate it when I can tell you is that Google searches Calls to suicide prevention lines and visits to online support groups are up more than two hundred percent since the lockdown began. You should also know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. In fact, I WANNA lead with some really powerful statistics so that you'll begin to think about this, not just in terms of you or your family members. But your neighbors, your parents, your grandparents, your nieces, or nephews every day. The CDC estimates about one, hundred, twenty, three people die from suicide, and that was in twenty nineteen. It's also estimated that only half of Americans who are experiencing some form of depression or anxiety ever seek treatment. But did you know that between eighty to ninety percent of people who do seek treatment for depression or anxiety find success by using therapist and or a medical intervention? Did you hear that like eighty to ninety percent feel better? An estimated quarter? Million People? Every year are survivors of suicide attempt. In previous years, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the world for people ages fifteen to twenty, four today, it's the number one leading cause of death. And although more females than males attempt suicide. represent. Seventy, nine percent. Of, all suicides in the United, states? Firearms being their most commonly used method and for females. The most commonly used method is overdose poison if you will. Now, let's talk about who is at greatest risk I. It is our LGBTQ plus community. There are three times, more likely special kids, three times more likely than straight kid to attempt suicide Oh nps if you have a sneaking suspicion that your kid might. Be Gay. Bi. Trans. Trust me just accept them and love them if you don't. They feel that. They know that don't assume your Keta straight is what I'm trying to say kids who worry about what their parents and society might think are three times more likely. To commit suicide forty-one percent of trans, adults that they've attempted suicide and the same study found that almost sixty one percent of trans people who were also victims of some form of assault sixty. One percent of those people have attempted suicide because get this lesbian gay and bisexual young adults who come from families where either the belief the notion, the sentiment was that they would be rejected because of their sexuality. Those kids are eight times more likely to commit suicide. Then, children who come from families where they feel very accepted. Each time and lgbtq person is of victim of any type of harassment or abuse that increases their risk of self harm by almost three hundred percent. Those are some of the most at risk populations, the elderly, also a very high risk population. What do I have delivered for I? Don't WANNA be a burden to my children. There's nothing for me to look forward to. Black talk about risk factors regardless of population demographic. The WanNa be on the lookout for these risk factors. Place people at a much higher likelihood of attempting suicide, any previous known or unknown or diagnosed mental disorder. Especially mood disorders, schizophrenia bipolar ast, which is autism spectrum disorder autism, any anxiety disorder, and certain personality disorders. Those who regularly use substances, like you know, drugs, alcohol painkillers, people who tend to be more impulsive or aggressive anyone with a history of trauma, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse people who are experiencing a major physical disability setback, chronic illness, those with a family history of suicide, those who have a close friend or relative committed suicide anyone who's in recent job or financial distress. Those, who recently lost a relationship at greater risk for suicide is anyone who's being isolated or who lacks their peers social support?

Saudi King Is Said to Have Successful Gallbladder Surgery

"Moving onto Saudi Arabia. King Salman is spending some time in the hospital there this week Saudi state media report he had surgery to remove his gallbladder, and it was successful nothing life threatening, but whenever an eighty four year old national leader is hospitalized for whatever reason it raises questions for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Those questions about what a possible succession might look like the World Sharon Jafari reports the modern day kingdom of Saudi. Arabia was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, two, and since. Since, then it's been ruled by the same royal family succession has mostly gone from father to son or brother to brother eighty four year old King Solomon took over from his brother into fifteen. Joseph Russell was the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia back then. Oh, yes, I got to know him very while this describes Kim Samoan as educated Matt. It says the king loves to read to his grandchildren so whenever he went back to New York while says he would buy books as gifts for some on. In the old culture of Saudi culture books never had pictures. That's because the ultra conservatives in the kingdom considered images to be un-islamic, so made sure I brought books a lot pictures. One time was false, as he brought by another bound copy of one thousand and One Nights, a collection of middle. Eastern folktales, and the king loved it. At the opportunity to work with online, I grew very fond of him, but while Kingston Mon- might be the most powerful official in Saudi Arabia. It's his son. Crown Prince Mohammad Bin, Salman who runs the kingdom on a day to day basis. NBS known is next in line to the throne. Nowadays, the process of succession is overseen by a special group of authorities yes-men. Faruk is with Carnegie in. For International, peace in Washington, the previous king had established what they call the allegiance council, which is basically a counseled from the surviving sons of the funder for NPS to become kings. She says this council would initiate a process for members of the royal family to pledge allegiance to the new king, but right now there's a problem. The Allegiance Council doesn't have had the last one died, and I think the position has been vacant for over two years now and one member at least of the allegiance council is under arrest Prince Amit faulk says NBA has been controversial figure since they want his made it his mission to consolidate power and supply line any potential competitor. Nabil Nura an expert on Gulf affairs says MP's has arrested an intimidate viable members of the royal family also rounded up hundreds of businessmen and activists. He was to show that he is the guy for the position, and he wants to make sure that there are no challenges in his way to the throne occupied. Was it all after. that. The king went to the hospital state TV showed him holding a cabinet meeting from there. That's to show that the king is alive and well, and still in charge, but nobody says it's an open secret that MBA's is actively pushing to become king while his father is still around. Why well a number of things one of them is related to the US actually Hamad bin. Salman wants to make sure that he ascends the throne while president. Trump is personally that states trump has been supportive of the crown. Prince says it's not clear if joe. Biden would do the same besides the American election does also the G. Twenty summit in November. It could be a critical moment for MBA's to show that he is in charge. And some people from the Royal Family might not be happy with Hamad bin Salman, being king, so hammered. This might ascend the throne while his father is still alive to make sure that everything goes smoothly. So where does all this leave the US? Saudi relations Yes menfolk says NBA is a controversial figure in Washington DC. She says it's not internal policies that have raised eyebrows NBA has has been the war in Yemen and according to the CIA or did. Did the kidding of Washington Post columnist Jamal and unfortunately like many things inside Washington there is polarization and the debate is very much politicized, but let me tell you that the concern, the uncertainty about the rule of Mohammad Bin, Salman is certainly bipartisan. People differ on what to do about it, folks. Some things have not changed Saudi Arabia remains a key player in the global oil market and president. Trump has boasted about selling weapons to the king. Now with the possibility of political transition in both countries on the horizon, there are big questions about the future of the relationship between the two longtime allies.

Journalists of Color

It's Been a Minute with Sam Sanders

37:15 min | 1 year ago

Journalists of Color

"Before the interviews I wanNA share my theory. For why all of this exploded for journalists of Color Right now? It goes back a few years. So many of us went from covering the first black president to covering Donald Trump. And ever, since trump came down that escalator, announcing his campaign back in Twenty fifteen, when he denounced Mexicans as drug traffickers rapist. When he was that he would build a wall at the border and that Mexico will pay for it. Those journalists were told to avoid using words like racist or lie to describe some of trump's worse behavior. That kind of self censorship, especially on race for a lot of us, it became untenable after we had to cover the death of George Floyd and report on that video of a black man, being choked to death for eight minutes. On top of that we are now dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which is laying bare racial inequities across this country. And Corinthian has given a lot of us time to sit and think. Notice what's going on in the world and in our lives and in our newsrooms? You have black journalists and other journalists of color who think of themselves as truth seekers in the same way that their white colleagues, too, but very often when they tell the truth about racism when they tell the truth about. Bright, white supremacy. They're labeled as activist. Highs! They dared to bring their blackness across the newsroom threshold. PSORIATIC McDonald's has been thinking a lot about race and the news. So I asked her as a black journalist in this moment. What does she want to see change so I would say what I want is actual structural change within newsroom leadership? I do not want the equivalent of painting black lives matter on a street in yellow letters, but in a newsroom. It's visible. By that doesn't really solve anything when it comes to pay discrepancies between. White male journalists and black female journalist who do the same job have the same level of experience and one is making thirty thousand dollars a year more than the other. The other thing is that. You cannot have. Newsroom leadership that is completely made up of six Cheddar straight white men. Even. Under straight white women. Zicklin or gender straight Whiteman that power needs to be distributed more equitably. You know the other thing died. I want to see I wanNA see US cover. Race honestly. right? Race isn't just something that black people, experience or something that non white experience, attempting that everyone experience and says and so. There needs to be a baseline of literacy rate when it comes to how we talk about race with an America how it operates within American history, and how that informs. President and what world. News media has played in that way. We have to consider that. The last time that we had a pandemic, the nineteen eighteen flu pandemic. We need to recognize that. The paper of record in Chicago the Chicago Tribune. Is Basically scapegoating black people who are fleeing the American south, basically saying Oh half a million darkies are basically invading Chicago. If that's objectivity as not the kind of objectivity that I want to participate in them. Yeah, yeah, I WANNA get personal a little bit You ended up being quoted in New York Times. Article about this reckoning talking about how you didn't have a great time at the Washington Post. You've tweeted about your experience as a black woman in newsrooms. What does this reckoning meant for you? And what have you been trying to get off your chest and this moment about your experience? In some of the newsroom's that we've been talking about my hope for this reckoning. is that. There is not one more class of you know young. Ernest! Twenty two year old coming out of journalism school I'm who basically have to go through this really damaging gauntlet. We're constantly sort of questioning yourself and your own worth and I think there are a lot of really talented journalists who have been driven from the field. Because at some point, they feel like they have to make a choice between their own mental health. Or being journalist. And they just self-preservation and I cannot blame them. and that is really a shame, because think about the people that those journalists now think about the stories that they could have told. The access they could have had picked the access to walk into certain spaces at their white colleagues cannot exactly and you know one of the ways, and this is not the only way that this is important, but one of the ways that this is important is. We need them to trust us. Our job is to tell their stories and to tell them accurately and to tell them fairly. And if people are are always getting pushed out the folks who might actually be able to empathize with them who know where they're coming from right I? There's a quote from their lake when I fall where she basically expresses the you know, she's probably the only person who covered public housing who's actually lived in public housing? That, yeah, that is. Expertise right that is. Valuable knowledge so I just I want us to be able to practice our profession with humanity. Yeah, and also it's like in this moment where it seems like more than ever before. At least in my lifetime, there is such a deficit of trust. Americans don't trust institutions. They don't trust journalism. They don't trust facts. Worst argument about whether or not mask can prevent the spread of Corona virus like in this environment if newsrooms don't act in fix some of this stuff. is going to create more mistrust in the media and these news outlets will become less relevant in a moment in which I would argue. They are needed more than ever before. Yes, and you know the thing is is and I've said this repeatedly at that American journalism does have a credibility crisis. The the credibility crisis that we have I think. Actually bears a lot of similarities to. Our current sort of Voter disenfranchisement problem. Being. In Journalism, we have not spent enough time. with the very same folks who are often disenfranchised when it comes to media coverage as well right. And when we think about the press and freedom of the press is an instrument of democracy we have to think about. enfranchising everyone, we have to think about making sure that they do find us credible. The folks. If they look at the newspaper, even look at a website or they listen to the radio and their conclusion is. That these entities are not telling the truth about them in their lives and held their lives are. For them yeah for them. That's a credibility issue for us. Yeah we can fix. It failed them. That means that. We have to develop far better relationships with folks who have historically been shunned or shut out of district of media coverage are only allowed to participate in very limited ways. You know I still very much believe in that adage, the journalism exist to comfort the afflicted and afflict comfortable. Thanks again to riot, not at McDonald's the culture writer for the undefeated and also this year. She was nominated a pilot sir. My mind. I wanted to hear from other journalists of color about their newsroom experiences. And they wrote in. Here if you, my name is Lavi Cima Guy side. I'm a naturalized citizen who came to this country as a young child. I worked at a bare he a newspaper for a long time and have fond memories of my time there. I had mostly white editors, and in fact, I've only had one non white supervisor in my over two decades in journalism. My name is John. Sepulvado, I mixed. I have Mexican Irish indigenous and Black Ancestry I worked in public media for fifteen years. There are tons of horror stories. There was the white woman editor who asked me if I like dog-fighting because she quote hurt. Might People like dogfighting? There was another white woman editor told me to smile more around the office because I quote have dark features and those dark features, scared herself and other white women around the office. One time a headline I, wrote for one of my own stories, led to a newsroom wide, meeting an emotional one, where a bunch of US had to persuade top editors to let us call the president's racism what it is! The most frustrating part was that I and others had to explain to our colleagues. Why our voices were important. And partly because they reflected the communities we covered. argued. Repeat, a thousand more stories like that. But at. A point I realized. That no matter what I did no matter how good I was no matter how hard I worked. I would always be seen. As something that is not. White. And my mobile was the leave the industry. All right time for a break. When we come back, we will hear from Latina, trailblazer who refused to leave the news business. Instead. She started her own media company to tell the stories that she wanted to tell. Hey another reminder asking you all to fill out that survey for us. Okay, it is anonymous.

School will start off our course in economics within workout for your brain how to decide what something newly costs for? Planet money from, NPR. People still find it really interesting salmon like I'm like no. No I. I was the first Latina in the newsroom at NPR ever to step foot. WHO WASN'T CLEANING IT? That was me right that that was that. Was this Latina? That is Maria. She's had a long career in media, not just here NPR but also at CNN NPS in two thousand ten. She founded her own company for total media. And she has a memoir. It's called once. I was you that comes out in September, but most of you probably know Maria. As the host of a very long running public radio show turned podcast from NPR and through media. It's like new USA mighty. Hossack Latino USA has been around since the early nineties. It is attributed by NPR. which is why you hear NPR in the credits, but that will be changing USA is moving. As distributor. It means nothing's GonNa Change for you. Our listener that our audience is going to get way way way bigger. We're very excited. Announcement might have been confusing for listeners, but don't worry like. She said you'll still be able to hear the show. But the Journal of Color, especially in public radio that move meant that NPR was losing a hugely influential show dedicated to covering Latino stories in the US. And from its founding NPR has been well bad on race. More than seventy percent of NPR's newsroom is white and of the sources you here on NPR's air, those voices they are more than eighty percent white. People of Color who work in public media? We have been saying for years. Fix this including Maria Hosa. We're asking the question. Are you listening? Are you hearing? And that his own ready a power dynamic that is wrong. This notion is the assumption that they the they will always have the power I. Ask Maria what Latino USA leaving NPR means for this network, but I I asked her about blazing trails. One could see your path to be one of color who found her own company as a shining success, but one could also see your path as proving that the conventional spaces in media can accommodate of voice like you the way they should you know like. I'm so proud of what you're doing, but also the fact that you have to make your own production company shows at the NPR's and the PBS's and the CNN in many ways. Don't get it and can't help people like you tell the stories that you need to tell. I was thinking about that as I was thinking about our interview Sam because. My husband calls me Aguirre, a warrior, and then as I was thinking about our conversation, Sam. I was like well. That's great i. like that, but you know what I don't want. Journalists of color to have to be warriors at into order to be able to work as To work as journalists of Contians, who can bring their entire cells into the news room? Who are going to be seen who are going to not only be seen and heard but actually. Put into positions of power to be the ones who are listening and making the decisions about. Yeah, we want that story on the front page and the headline is going to say that exactly. I want you you know everyone has been using it. Everyone's been going to twitter sharing their reckoning story, the slight the knocked in that promotion. The being told you can't do this do that. Give me one of your reckoning stories from your career when I when I come to this country, I'm born in Mexico. My whole family's born in Mexico. We're raised on south side of Chicago. You know sixties and seventies, but as Mexican immigrants we also understood the essential nature of journalism and American independent journalism and so. My father was watching. Meet the press every Sunday and we were watching the today show and we watched sixty minutes, and because of the fact that it was so American in holding people accountable and I was like that's what journalism is so long. Story Short is many years later actually a decade ago go to sixty minutes when I'm out of work and needed a job actually and. They basically like look, can you Can you come back and talk to us? When one of the old white guys get secret is really and I, said and I just remember like. Like am I supposed to laugh? It's funny. Is that a joke as being? and. As we do in the media's people of Color, 'cause we're really good at laughing things off. Like. Yeah. Banter you know the the the the the we're so smart. On. Exactly Racism! Exactly. And I got into the subway at fifty ninth street onto my apartment in Harlem and I cried on the train. and. I was just like, but I am not. You know I'm knocking to let this take me down. And that was the moment that I decided to create food. Media Winds Rams history. Takes over Latino, USA. And Expands Latino USA grows the show and let the USA's audience twenty seven years in. Is in a continual upward trajectory. You love to see it. As I. Want to ask more about what needs to happen. We are in this moment now. Where so many journalists coming forward with their stories? But it's still unclear what newsroom leaders will actually do to fix this stuff you have been on all sides of media for profit nonprofit. Give me like a checklist of the big three or four things that mass media should do right now to effectively respond to the issues raised in this reckoning. Feel like this is a moment to be having that difficult conversation, which is pushing this reckoning that we're talking about to another level. I'm going. Give you an example, Sam it brings me joy, it brings me no joy to have to ask white men in senior editorial positions how they consider my role as a Mexican immigrant woman journalist. In relation to a president who insults every single one of those things that I do? And and And basis a lot of that on his white supremacy. Which is very challenging word to even use in our newsrooms right, but yeah. I don't feel comfortable saying it. I want you to feel uncomfortable having to answer that question. Because his white supremacy does not impact you in the way, it impacts me, and I am a journalist just like you. I am an equal journalist just like you so now. You helped me to figure out. Harmon handle that because that that impacts our might quote unquote objectively, you have to be able to recognize that you do not have an ownership of activity or an ownership of the media or an ownership of public media, or it's not yours to share yeah. Did any of the issues we've discussed about. In diversity and Unfair situations that journals of have to deal within this industry. Did those factor into your business decision. To leave NPR ex. Look I've had you know NPR's my family? IF NPR calls I'm going to say when you I was absolutely and Bureau Sam he's my family. You know we hung out once, but he's. He's my brother. Because we're digesting PR so NPR's my family Mi. Familia was my first job. But You know I started a company. And I have a team of very savvy business and media executives journalists. And when they said look, we have an opportunity here in in a competitive marketplace A. Somebody PR X.. Who wants to really go big? Yeah, I will say you know they are all of these. Underground email channels and slack channels and discussion boards were journalists of color are coming together to talk about all these issues and there's been a lot of chatter about your show. What says about NPR yeah? Why am I so disconnected? Oh my God. I thought I. Thought I was like connected because I'm on twitter and I got a fat. And what folks have been saying? People who love your show Oh my goodness. They're saying well. This speaks to the larger problems. NPR has always had with content may for people of Color. They don't market it enough. They don't support it enough. You have these program. Directors at various stations put a show like yours on at not great hours. This is the stuff that people are saying. Do you I mean like to the extent that you can elaborate on it, you know. Did you feel like NPR? Neglected or didn't promote enough your type of show. So of these issues at play with the race and diversity in space like NPR. Again. Let New USA right now is growing an audience at kind of extraordinary numbers I think we're one of the few public radio programs or previously distributed by NPR. That is growing an audience at these numbers. And so the fact that. We made this decision. Says everything about. WHAT NPR. Kind of thinks. About letting USA. Now having said that I don't know you know I. Don't know the internal finances at NPR. Maybe NPR's is is really facing a a real financial challenges that I'm not privy to. And so you know, but but when you're thinking about AH, show, that has this kind of. Audience Commitment There was a point not long ago. When one of your colleagues called me up, actually she works in. She's a Latina colleague at NPR in the newsroom, and she called me up and she said. Do you think that Latino USA has been this incredibly successful because of NPR or despite NPR. And no one had asked me that and I kind of like. ooh And I said well actually despite. Despite NPR, do you think you know 'cause? There are a lot of shows not produced by NPR. Distributed by NPR. Do, you think other shows like that in your same boat that were hosted by white people or felt to maybe India leadership more mainstream. Do you think they got more support than your show did pound for pound? Yeah How does that make you feel? Like I said, that's why. I didn't. See I've been feeling this for a long time, my love. News, so Gimme a word for the emotion. Well right now I'm glad that I'm with a partnership with Pr X.. That's not gonNA units not on the table so I'm like I'm looking to the future. That's why I'm like yeah I'm all about like? It's all about the dodge this morning, boxing teacher. was making us do the we've the. We've the constant, which by the way is really really hard, and that's just how I feel is a journalist of color in a survivor Mexican immigrant woman in this like it's always like whoo. Okay well and so. That stuff that you're saying like. How does it make me? That's rolled off me a long time ago, and it is a central part of what has moved me as a journalist as a woman of color in this country is that. Is like. Oh, you're going to try to silence me or tell me that I'm not objective or tell me that I have an agenda or tell me that is not going to be successful or tell me. Okay I might go home and cry. But I'm not GONNA give up. Thanks, again to Maria Hinojosa. She's the host of the Tino USA. We asked NPR for a response to what Maria told us and they gave us this statement. We have the highest respect and admiration for the Latino USA team and from Maria Hinojosa. We are proud. That Latino USA originated at NPR member station, K. U. T., and that since nineteen, ninety-four NPR has been the program's national distribution partner today, hundreds of NPR member stations bring the show to their listening communities. We are grateful. Maria entertain who are produced a consistently wonderful show and nurtured journalist who have gone on to work all over the public radio system. We are glad public radio listeners will continue to hear Latino. USA on their public radio stations across the nation. All right now. We're going to have a chat with someone who just began working with NPR Kelly. McBride NPR's newest public editor. I WanNa talk with her. About one particular part of this entire debate, the way in which we've been taught as journalists to do our jobs that most fundamental level leads to systemically racist outcomes. I am talking specifically about the idea of journalistic objectivity. This idea that reporters only report the facts. They keep themselves out of the story, and they eliminate all biased in their coverage. A lot of folks say well. That only works if you're man and straight. And White. I wanted to find out. Why are journalism so entrenched in objectivity and whether or not this standard is fair, so I went to one of the top journalism at experts in the country I am the senior vice president at the POYNTER institute. I am the chair of the Craig Newmark Center Ethics in leadership at the Poynter Institute and I am also the public editor for NPR that Kelly McBride. Kelly has advised newsrooms about difficult journalism ethics problems for years, so it made. Made, sense to begin by asking Kelly for her definition of objectivity in journalism, it really means that you will objectively pursue the facts in order to determine the truth, and there's all sorts of things that go into that right like there's how you frame the story how you identify who you're going to interview, and then really important is who else is involved in the story. So who edits it because that the the safety nets that are created in newsrooms are meant. To help an individual program against her own bias now the problem is if all the safety nets have the same biases that that doesn't happen right and that's. That's exactly what's been happier. Also objectivity has come to mean certain different things for different journalists. There are some. Who say well objectivity means that you have to. Pretend! That kind of you don't exist, and you have to just simply say what these powerful people are saying doing. You don't provide context you don't provide analysis. It's a kind of. Totally taking yourself all the way out of it to the point where you won't even tell people if you vote or not. And I think. This is the thing for me like there's so many different interpretations of what objectivity means, yet you know that's actually kind of a confederation of two different principals in journalism, so one is the principle of objectivity in this idea that that we are pursuing the truth in spite of our own biases, and that that we actually promised, swear to God that we're going to get it right because we have all these safeguards in place, even though they've failed numerous times in the past. But the other thing is is that in American journalism in particular? It was built on this business principle of aggregating A. Politically diverse audience, and then selling that audience to advertisers, so in in Europe you see much more you see much more of the journalism coming through a political lens because that's just how the business model grew up over there, but over here especially as in different markets, you went from multiple newspapers to a single newspaper. There was this motive that was really a business motive that you would bring in the entire political spectrum and if you were going to do that, you needed to convince that audience that you in the newsroom didn't have. Any particular biases it is refreshing to hear you as a leader in the industry acknowledged that some of this is about the principles and bedrocks of our journalism, and some of it's about business, and at the end of the day for whatever reason we have ended up with a definition of objectivity. That is as much about business as it is about telling the truth and I think what frustrates so many journalists, somebody younger journalists, journalists of color or women require journalists as at newsroom leaders are resistant to acknowledge that I read NPR's social media policy, and it's couched in terms of ethics and morality and idealism. But I also know that part of it is the bottom line is. Not Do anything of the public facing person at NPR. That would possibly damage NPR's revenue streams. And I mad. They don't just say that. Yeah? They don't mean to say that they. Don't I mean that's the thing is they? Don't. They really do believe, and I actually believe also that there is. That there is a line somewhere that we shouldn't cross, and maybe it is way up the continuum on just. If you're a political reporter. You can't help people who you're voting for. Maybe the line is all the way over there. Right, because of imagine that like if you were a political reporter in you were covering. Trump's campaign and you again. I'm voting for Biden though I was that guy. Did you tell people out loud. I didn't tell folks voting for in two thousand sixteen, and I wouldn't but I think gets. Those are the ones where I think everyone can agree, but there's there's there's other things like how much of me do I. Bring to a story when I'm covering police violence against black men. Am I allowed to say that's racist. Because I know what racism is experienced, it trust me and don't make me say racially tinged. Like those, and that's where it gets murkier well. You know you know where I. I experienced this. Yeah, so when gay marriage was was a hot hot issue, right? They were different cities or states that were making gay marriage legal. The Supreme Court hadn't yet decided in San Francisco the mayor of San Francisco. made it legal and a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle on a Saturday after weeks of covering it, the City Hall reporter went down and got a marriage license, and she was taken off the beat. Wow, and as in as an ethicist, right is a journalism ethicist. I was like wait a second. That can't be right. because. She was exercising in San Francisco. What was a legal right? You don't mean you didn't tell people who'd been divorced. They couldn't cover this issue because they'd you know somehow. Defiled the sanctity of marriage by? Getting divorced. So that was, that was where realized that you cannot penalize people for who they are. That's not fair. Yeah, because you end up with the only people that are untainted enough to do all the work are people who are only straight are people who are only men are people who have only gone to college and has a certain pedigree people who are an the deaths a problem, so bias is to right. It's just that we don't well. That's the thing, but these leaders aren't seeing those. Yeah, because they look just like them. I think now what is required to speak to the Syria. Systemic issues being raised in this reckoning. Going to have to be an acknowledgement that the movement toward writing these wrongs. It's going to be in some ways painful and you should do it anyway. From your conversations with newsroom leaders across the country. Do you think they're ready to accept that idea that this might hurt that? It might not just be. A statement and everyone shakes hands, and says sure good now now I mean nobody wants to voluntarily sign up for something painful. You do it because you know that what comes on the other side is worth head. There's individuals in every single newsroom who are part of the problem. Then somebody has to tell those people that if they want to keep their jobs, they have to stop being part of the problem, and that means that they're either going to have to be quiet. Or they're going to have to change or leave. Just leave well. That's I mean if they want to keep their job right like. Yeah and I've seen people. Who are these problem, people? I don't think I've ever seen any of them. Actually chain, but I've seen some of them. Learn to be quiet and let other people lead. And then they actually become the beneficiary. Of what comes after yeah. And then I. Think also so many lessons of me too I. Think are applicable to this meteoroid. Me To kind of work. Because a lot of folks were just literally canceled and they had to go, they were shamed. They were fired. And you said you can't be here anymore. And it was painful for them, and probably all the folks that liked them in love them but like. Sometimes, it's just that yeah. So my last question for you back to these two ideals that butt heads this idea of objectivity. But also this business idea of needing to be somewhat neutral to appeal to a large audience. And reworking probably reassessing, what objectively means a newsroom? What advice would you give to newsroom leaders? Writing up that next ethics guideline for their journalist about quote, Unquote Objectivity Post reckoning. Yeah, so this is where I'm supposed to come through with something really profound and I mean I. I am I. Am humble enough to say. That I don't have the answer yet. But I'm also arrogant enough to say that I believe after working through lots of really really hard ethics problems with newsrooms that I think we are going to find the answer and I think it's going to start by. Recognizing that there is a difference between. Revealing political bias. and. Revealing lived experience. And we need to start there and say your lived. Experience should not count as political bias. Thanks again to Kelly McBride joining us and thanks to everyone who, over the last week or so shared very very personal stories about life as a person of color in the newsroom. I heard from colleagues as well. And one thing one of those colleagues told me about all of this. She said so much of this work is convincing journalist. who think they've been doing it right for so long that maybe in some ways they've been doing it wrong. And then she said to me. This phrase really stuck with me, she said. How do you argue with the fish about the water there's. I. Don't know just yet how to do that. It's pretty difficult. It seems frustrating,

I would recommend you to other people like I would definitely recommend you and one being nope I would never recommend you. And the way net promoter describes the different types of people is promoters passes and detractors so promoters are anybody who gives you a rating of eight nine or ten five. Six seven are passive. This means that they're not gonNA openly promote you nor are they going to bash you? Any is a people that don't like you an organ voice that so the first thing we do with all our customers ask them to answer.

"Like, how the hell do underwrite a siege stage business with probably no revenues or low revenues a basically got a founder and an idea. Like, how do you underwrite that in a world that's changing that fast? And like, why is that an exciting investment prospect to you? It's amazingly human in smart is I'm gonna say all these things we do in diligence. Just sore sore LP's, Phil. Good, which I hope they do. It's like we don't have these computers. Ryan these quote things left, and right and everything and we probably should at some point. But quite frankly, things we look for NPS deficiencies. So where is they're just not allow love in the category. You look back at kind bar kind bar day myself like three years. Go ahead and NPS which is a net promoter score. Which is basically what is the likelihood that you would recommend or be an advocate for brand to someone else. Like, somebody survey people exactly and kind bar had a fifty one NPS everyone else in the category. It was like fourteen or negative so utility companies like con Ed is a negative an apple is at a ninety five. So what we look for is where they're low NPS categories where there's opportunities some are best performers of early stage. Brands over the past seventy years have NPS score north of eighty. So that's one of the things that we look at depending what we're investing. Where's her journey? Inefficiency? How hard is it to get X or wires e similar? What's the journey? What was that call? If you're a consumer is like how easy or not easy for me to purchase a product or. Certain service. So bring back to Gillette example. Wow, that's really expensive. There's got to be a different way. We don't know any better than here comes Dollar Shave Club or Harry's. Worby Parker crafters and looks basically exotica had a monopoly over the market. Looks audit cod of Italy owns lenscrafters, but they also bought Ray band in Oakley, and if you're wearing Tom Ford glasses guests who made it here comes worry Parker along and it's just like high margin category. And they said, you know, what we'll take a little less margin and just offer much better service. Try five pairs on at.

It's amazingly human in smart is I'm gonna say all these things we do in diligence. Just sore sore LP's, Phil. Good, which I hope they do. It's like we don't have these computers. Ryan these quote things left, and right and everything and we probably should at some point. But quite frankly, things we look for NPS deficiencies. So where is they're just not allow love in the category. You look back at kind bar kind bar day myself like three years. Go ahead and NPS which is a net promoter score. Which is basically what is the likelihood that you would recommend or be an advocate for brand to someone else. Like, somebody survey people exactly and kind bar had a fifty one NPS everyone else in the category. It was like fourteen or negative so utility companies like con Ed is a negative an apple is at a ninety five. So what we look for is where they're low NPS categories where there's opportunities some are best performers of early stage. Brands over the past seventy years have NPS score north of eighty. So that's one of the things that we look at depending what we're investing. Where's her journey? Inefficiency? How hard is it to get X or wires e similar? What's the journey? What was that call? If you're a consumer is like how easy or not easy for me to purchase a product or. Certain service. So bring back to Gillette example. Wow, that's really expensive. There's got to be a different way. We don't know any better than here comes Dollar Shave Club or Harry's. Worby Parker crafters and looks basically exotica had a monopoly over the market. Looks audit cod of Italy owns lenscrafters, but they also bought Ray band in Oakley, and if you're wearing Tom Ford glasses guests who made it here comes worry Parker along and it's just like high margin category.

"So can we just take a moment? And I'd like to unpack that a bit for those folks who might not know about a code. Switching is basically as as I as I understand it, you know, basically switching how yet talk and how you handle yourself if you're in different communities, different neighborhoods. How does it play out for you? Well, so I always went to NPS or not NPS just school in the lucky because that's Riley. When I started at the freshmen in highschool, I came over to Franklin high school, and it was a whole new ballgame for me on from being around people all day who looked in top just like me now coming here to people who looks completely different than and had differently in different than I have. So I remember my freshman year, I would still talk like normal, or I was still used certain pointing and people would not understand what I meant by sanction words, or I would just do different for talking let's proper than they did. So I kind of just started to teach myself that when I'm at school, I talked proper I used proper English.

We'll see how much fun they had at my expense as they did last year. But it is a great night. And it's for charity. So if you can get out there. Join us live also rebroadcasts it right here in WTMJ. Hey, just mentioned on my WTMJ show poll. I do it every day twenty four hours, and it's always a topic that we discussed on the show today's topic who do you side with CNN and Jim Acosta, the reporter who got kicked out of the White House had his press pass polled or the president who's in the right right now. It's exactly fifty fifty. So there's a lot of back and forth, but you can find it at Twitter. Find me WTMJ's follow me their answer our show Paul will keep it up until tomorrow morning. I'll give you the results as up to about eleven thirty five later on the show on where that stands. That was one of our early topics on the show today. It's not always in the nine o'clock hour. We should we move it around so way in and give me your take on our our show poll of the day. I'll wrap up the four at ten with this this story NPS the state report cards are out from the department of public instruction. And as the state goes schools are doing very well, many meeting or exceeding the academic benchmarks set forward. But NPS is a different animal here. It's the state's largest school district. And I always preface my comments about NPS. I understand. It's a challenge district many students living in poverty, a lot of issues that suburban and rural school districts don't have to deal with. So I get that. And what the report suggests that many of the schools in within NPS more than half nephew. Or no state academic goals in the last school year twenty seventeen two thousand eighteen now the superintendent walkie public schools, keep -posedly touted the district's growth of the last year they picked up one point in our guest early this morning from will this is due for long. Liberty will Flanders noted that that slight increase, but it's almost undetectable as far as performance difference. So what are we make this? We have a challenging school district. We have a district where many kids are facing challenges at home a face crime. Just in the effort to get the school. We have high levels of absenteeism, which is not unique CMPS one of the other things that came with report was that across the state suburban school districts also seeing an increase in schools absentee rate. I'm not sure what's driving that. That's the question. I think that folks like Tony ears governor elect, Tony currently you superintendent of public instruction should have to try to figure out one of one of the reasons I was critical of Tony was the fact that he seemed like he was getting off the hook for these issues for NPS. What do you do here? How do you figure this out? Status quo is not gonna work. They've been very good and very forceful in their attempt to keep things the way, they were minus all the changes, they in curriculum in the NPS, and I've been very forthcoming and what I think about what they pant plan should be. And I applauded there superintendent Keith policy for saying get back to the basics. Reading writing arithmetic. Make these kids focus on those core elements of education, they have a much better chance to get a degree getting a degree. Of course, opens up all kinds of doors for a promising future their absentee rates there. The fact that in some schools their graduation rate is about as busy as it can get you have to start thinking outside the box and status codes not gonna work for NPS. Now they've ever strong teacher's union. And I understand teachers have a tough job, especially those with an NPS. I have a brother who teaches an MP s and he tells me all the time how challenging that is how difficult it is just to get parents attention to get kids. Attention get them focused on learning. But I'm not a big a big fan of the throw up your hands and say, well, it's it's a challenging environment. This is the best. We can do that's not gonna work, and it shouldn't be satisfactory. We should make every effort to change things. And sometimes as I always say changes difficult. It would be great if the teacher's union at NPS would say we are willing to look at some things in a different way. And I'm not letting administration off the hook. I talked a lot of NPS teachers either by Email or personal conversations. There's a lot of work that can be done at the administration level as well that making those changes it is a bit top heavy how many PHD's do we need to run a failing school district? I'd rather see more teachers unless administration. Because more teachers mean smaller class sizes, which usually results in better education and more kids succeeding. But for NPS, it's time to change from the status quo and move forward. And the latest report from the State Department of public instruction suggests status calls not working. Now, I give superintendent Keith palsy at NPS the opportunity to fix it. He just got into that position this year. And his focus on basics. I think is one of the keys, but you gotta get support from all parties involved, and frankly, parents parenting skills are part of the issue, and it's more than that as well. The economy the economic economic conditions that many of those families are facing now not easy by any stretch of the imagination. But the results and not where they need to be and nobody gets a get out of jail free card. No one does. And that includes the administration of NPS, you gotta get the job done demonstrate that you can do the job. It's not just about the kids the kids want to succeed when they go there as young people as elementary age students they want to graduate from high school. Something happens something switched off and all parties need to work to make that change. So nobody gets a free pass you administration.

"Guests joining us because we'd develop a bit of a friendship. He might be the most important person in America. If not the world he may be joining us about seven thirty tonight. We'll see how that develops. But first of all I'm trying to watch CNN the Clinton news network the last several hours, and I'm suffering from projectile vomiting, then explosive diarrhea, and I bleed for my eyeballs thinking what the hell am I watching here? Jared Kushner and the president himself decapitate and kill Jamal kashogi. Did somehow did we did the American people have something to do with the apparent murder of a journalist who's a Saudi Arabian citizen who finds himself in in Turkey and their consulate. And somehow I think objective evidence will show that he was brutally murdered and that somehow America is necessarily involved somehow, we did it that we're responsible. How's that possible? For my way of thinking. It's not good. When someone gets killed. It wasn't good. When Kate Steinle was killed. It's not a good thing. When hundreds of Americans are killed every year through the actions of illegal aliens inside of America. It's not good when six or seven hundred Chicago south side residents are murdered every year six or seven hundred murdered and maybe four thousand shot, you know, it's really a bad thing. One a half a million. Syrians are barrel bombed by by Assad who was called by Hillary Clinton at one point. A patriot. None of those things are good. And I'm not saying what happened to kashogi is good. I'm telling you right now. It was awful. There's a report this afternoon out a Turkey. As the event was going on down, quote, his fingers were cut off in a gruesome fashion, and he was decapitated at the consulate as his fiancee waited outside. Terrible awful. Let's face it. Saudi Arabia is one of the best countries in the Middle East one of our best friends, but it is an awful place to live, especially if you're a woman or a dissident it is common in Saudi Arabia for a woman who is wearing certain western tower to be beaten half to death on the streets. It is quite common. If you tweet in Saudi Arabia, something negative about the leaders of that great country that you're going to be put in prison for months or years until you repent it is quite common to be hanged by the neck until you're dead or going through a firing squad for Dominicus behaviors inside Saudi Arabia, and that's still one of the best countries in the Middle East compared to Iran compared to Syria compared to Iraq. What is one of the best blazers debate? And there are friends that are not necessarily our enemy, but assuming these terrible things happen to good people, assuming Jamal kashogi was a really a great guy, and he was brutally murdered ahead his fingers salt off, and he was decapitated according to media accounts. That's what happened to him. Quote, cutoff cooks kashogi fingers, and then decapitated him terrible those responsible. I imagine we'll be held to account, but it happened in a consulate which as you, and I know is Saudi Arabian territory. So this it appears the Saudi Arabians killed a Saudi Arabian on Saudi Arabian territory, then probably took his body away in a van or put it in acid or something. This is terrible. It's awful kind of like when Kate Steinle was gunned down by some illegal alien, but for the last week or ten days the media is an overdrive there blame Trump are Jared Kushner or some relationship there saying somehow, we did it that we're responsible that Trump somehow with with Mohammed bin Salman so-called, m B S, the NPS is somehow consulting with Trump. Did he side what to do ahead of time, which is a bunch of crap? Nobody's in favor of this. We have a western mine Judeo-Christian ethic, we believe in due process at least Republicans do. So we believe in fairness, and so whatever happened to a Saudi Arabian by the Saudi Arabian government in a Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey is interesting. But HALE we got ten thousand murders in this country every year not being investigated by CNN or obsessing by the New York Times of the Washington Post where he worked as a contributor. Can we let it go a little bit and see what happened? And when it comes out that MBBS directly or indirectly. Hey, kashogi murdered in a horrible way. Because he was a dissident, and it's a talented -tarian offer regime in Saudi Arabia. That's what it's gonna come out. I guess Trump's responsible for that too. It never stops. It never ends. I can't take it anymore. It's awful. And so can we move on from that the answer? Of course is no this is the. The event does your the event this week and next week? They keep coming up whether it's cavenaugh or Julie sweating or Deborah Ramirez or a bunch of other incidents that have arisen the past several months. It's Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump Trump, how can we use this event? How can we take Christina Ford? How can we use this event that didn't involve Trump at all and somehow wash this upon him and stain or smear him? What some news event that Trump had nothing to do with doing nothing. Zero zilch. Nada didn't happen. How's that possible? But it goes on and on I try to watch for hours. Wolf Blitzer and others on CNN. It's impossible to watch. If NPS is on speed dial with Kushner and Trump taking orders, assuming he did it. What does that mean? What might be behind? It is this there are many in this country. And in the media who thinks the Iranian deal was wonderful for our country and that Barack Hussein Obama who delivered one point eight billion dollars in cash on governmental palettes to be used for terrorism. Byron man that was a great idea. We ought to do more of that. And so because Saudi Arabia is the pitched enemy of Iran. Maybe those in the media wants to get back to the Iranian deal and weaken Saudi Arabia in the Middle East. So that Iran takes over larger chunks to the Middle East, Iraq and Syria not being enough. Maybe that's what's behind it. Plus as you may know, if you've been paying attention, Israel and Saudi Arabia have become brothers. They become. Sisters. They become friendly with each other because they're enemy is Iran. The the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So because Israel and Iran, our enemies, and because Saudi Arabia, and Iran or enemies now, Israel and Saudi Arabia are working together in lots of areas. So there may be parts of America that wants to get rid of that that budding friendship between Israel and Saudi Arabia by weakening the Saudis, but whatever it is. We don't have a dog in this fight you may want to strengthen Iran, the media does or weaken Israel, which the media does. But by doing that, we're hurting our country after nine eleven which I think fifteen of the nineteen hijackers came from Saudi Arabia. We got a little sideways with Saudi Arabia for a while. But now we're back together and they're spending. I think the president said the other day something in the range of one hundred ten billion with a total cost of five hundred billion dollars of taking our military hardware to upgrade their. Military to fight Iran. Who's our enemy? They've been our enemy since since we help get rid of the Shah of Iran. Look what happened there. And so whatever happened happened it occurred. Let the Saudi Arabians deal with it. If the government ordered the killing of someone which by the way, America itself has done on a regular basis countries. Do these kinds of things if Saudi Arabian government decided to murder Jamal, kashogi and stupidly they decided to pick a consulate in Turkey to do the dash lead. And if that's a violation of some criminal all somewhere to the Turks this, you know, what I say have at it. But according to diplomatic law the consulate Israeli Saudi Arabian territory. And so what happened there stays in Saudi Arabia? So whatever happens happens. It is what it is. Can we move on? Absolutely, not you see the midterms are now only about what twenty days away twenty days from now the midterms and so things were heading toward the Republican way in many states, especially in Arizona, Nevada and Montana. The president is going to make a great appearance there North Dakota Heitkamp that allows you thing with disclosing the names of sexual assault victims. So the red wave appears to be building in the Senate, and that was the big news story. So the last several days, the news media, say wait a minute. This thing is heading toward the Republicans to help Trump. We can't have that. So they started this other thing about Jamal kashogi who was killed in Turkey, and he's Assad. Now, as we speak the last several days there have been hundreds of Americans who have been killed a few dozen by legal aliens. There's a horde of some two or three thousand central Americans making their way up to America paying their passage to MS thirteen with girls being raped and men being killed. It's happening right now. And so there's other news stories going on in the world. And because it was kind of going toward Trump's direction and his Rasmusen provable rating was up to fifty one percent. The media might have said, you know, what this is going the wrong direction, if we can go after somehow, the sods, and you and in their place put Jared Kushner and Trump's somehow responsible for the murder of kashogi. Maybe that'll be a good thing. Maybe we can stop the building red wave in the Senate. What's going to happen in the house? I have no idea. So so let's continue with more. If a line becomes available, which it never does eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight. Seven seven three eight one three eight one one. And Mark Levin. We'll be back with you on Monday stealing with a family member who's quite ill. He'll be back on Monday. So let's continue with more. Bill cunningham. The great American in for the great one.

"Honestly cannot tell that. He was he was making a joke about deonte long being an NPS basketball star who was. He's quite literally a convicted felon. He is he was sentenced to jail. I believe the initial sentence was suspended by judge Pedro Cologne. Of course, and he's going to be back at Milwaukee. Washington playing basketball. Interestingly enough, the w I a I am told is taking up what we can call a Deontay long exception. For a long rule where somebody convicted of, you know, a felony is not allowed to because the w I a got a whole lot of blowback from its sponsors. When it aired the state tournament last year. The state term is a big moneymaker for the WFAN, obviously. And it aired on was it spectrum sports, Arman, or Fox Sports, Wisconsin, one of those two I think Fox Sports, Wisconsin. It was aired on television. And you see the kid with the ankle monitoring bracelet around his ankle. And the W I A is forced to explain how this kid is allowed to play. As a convicted felon was sentenced he was convicted and sentenced and yet still allowed to play basketball sponsors, obviously, didn't like this. So weaker said linked to the story. He linked to the Deontay long story and was making an admittedly very very bad joke about how quite literally a convict. I was playing basketball now the link to Vincent is tenuous at best. Okay. They're both NPS schools. There's no. M P S. What's this Armand? Aaron Rodgers not practicing today. All right. So it's not a setback though. All right. We'll talk about that next Milwaukee to talk about Aaron Rodgers. And whether he's arm is convinced that Rogers has no ligaments left in his name figures important that it is important. It's very important Aaron will work in the rehab group today says McCarthy, it's not a setback east day to day. I don't believe he's going to play in Minnesota. I'm sorry. I just I believe they are going to start to Sean Kaiser there are essentially going to put this game because they don't want Rogers reinjuring the knee. He was very very obviously shot up with some sort of painkiller that just numb that thing. Good because he was electric in the second half. But you could tell it was bothering him. Anyway. So this was obviously. A reference to Deontay lawn. It came across because you couldn't immediately tell that. There was a link to a FOX story about the onta- long. It seemed as though he was calling all NPS kids convicts. And when the link is not immediately made clear any Nick Boris defense on this story on W. I S N channel twelve remember WFAN twelve has no affiliation. With WFAN radio. We've explained this people still don't understand that were owned by different companies. We originally owned by the same company, but the radio station was so anyway. Board does say during the tag to his story that waiters and said, hey, I was linking to a story about the onta-. Look, it doesn't matter. The left just like this comment or on my Facebook page is going to use any sort of excuse to try to portray you as a racist. Sure enough. It's the number two story on the W. I S N web page right now. And right there in the headline, it's not just blogger. It's not political blogger, it is conservative blogger refers to NPS students says little convex. Now is this a news story? Yes. I do believe it is should Wigger sin. Apologize and clarify what he was saying. Yes, I do believe should. And I believe is blog post, which is entitled NPS is still failing does that. But let's face it. Everybody in conservative politics. Everybody who puts their work out there in conservative circles should reasonably no. No that saying something like that. Even ingest is going to be interpreted to be a racial derogatory remark about all NPS dudes. And sure enough. Oh, there's Denise Calloway. There's NPS they are. So so offended. She's any camera that can capture Denise Calloway. She is standing in front of saying how outraged she is never mind last year. I did a story with hard evidence. You had a former teacher who says that her principal and her principles boss, the regional superintendent forced her to change kids grades. I cannot get Denise Calloway on the phone or by Email to save my life. She passes this off. To one of our employees to find a spokesman who tells me, well, Dan, there is no evidence that this actually happened. So we can't do you've got a teacher who is named in my story as saying this happens in the law. This is known as direct evidence, you have direct witness testimony that this happened don't investigate it any at all. But oh, no MP. Aw. Well, where are so offended by this conservative blogger? I do blood on the blackboard Denise Calloway will not talk to me, the former NPS spokes, no comment from NPR. They want nothing to do with this story mountains of evidence of students, quite frankly. Behaving like they belong in a penitentiary by violently attacking teachers, an MP sweeping all of this under the rug. No comment whatsoever. But oh, they're so offended. You know, what offends me what honest to goodness offends me is the point that Whitson was making five million dollars on a stadium. An MP is pleading poverty NPS has been pleading poverty for years. Okay. The schools don't get enough money. Tony either is is running for governor on the idea that schools don't get enough money. Well, obviously Vincent's getting enough money. What's Vincent's graduation rate? Now, I don't deny that facilities upgrades are sometimes needed and in the grand scheme of things five million dollars for a stadium is believe it or not not all that much. Hell what was it Arrowhead paid a million dollars for a locker room? If Vincent could get an entire stadium for just five times the cost of arrowheads locker room. All right. I'm willing to accept that. But the point that we Gerston was making he made it very poorly because he allowed this controversy to overshadow the very valid point. Hey, if NPS is pleading poverty, why can an NPS school spend all of this money on a stadium. But you have to understand everybody in conservative circles understands how something is going to be interpreted. Do I believe James Whitson is racist? No. But do I believe that the media is going to use this to portray him and by extension every other Wisconsin conservative writer as racist. And Hugh better believe it why. Because it's what they do ten thirty. You're listening to the dano Donald show.

Zillow or your. And then blackheart is a dragon. So they look pretty cool. That seems. Yeah, dragon course cave to new floors, and I know that that dungeon also has a level ninety five boss. So more n gin comment content, yes. Yeah. It seems like everything is very, will people who've beaten the game to give them some lease to return? Yeah. The big update in early twenty nineteen is going to be more story content and I'm not towed in the. There's a new dungeon with the second pack coming out in the winter. So it's a lot. I was quite a bit. I was a really big Kuni fan. This year was on PC NPS four, but I played on PS four and I did not expect to get sucked into it as I did, especially with the kingdom building mechanic narrowly hug me. So I hope they may be let you expand that one of these, but I love that game a lot. I had a really good time with Tom. I know you've played at a bit Casey bit Mark. It's your favorite game of all time of year ago. Yeah, that Kathleen, I always wanted to play it. And I, I missed a Surrey and I was hoping for peace for re release and they just, they just never did. I, you know, I like RPG's and, but yeah, and I don't know. Like, do you have to play the first one to play now? Understand story, totally different, totally different. Every it's the first one you do like creatures and stuff or Tokiwa, but this one likes you actually, she. I'm still sorely disappointed that the second one got rid of that mechanic entirely. So really capturing, yeah, it's just not there at all. And I mean they have Hegel to us, which is the Haley's. Yeah. Hear that Barrett corneal producers. Dulcet tones yelled out for the Higl dis as he said on the show hill, these are lit, especially the fire. Literally q. them, but there's nothing they're very different from going out and capturing monsters and trading them up like group in their bed, or they're more competitive than the. Yes. Yeah, but so you will. I don't know where you ended up with the game. How far you got into it both of you, but are you excited for the DC? Will you return to the game? I didn't beat it. I lost a little bit of steam with it, but it did get pretty far in. I'm just more happy that I don't know if I'm going to go back for this deal sea necessarily, but I'm really happy that it's getting it. I'm just really impressed with the support this games getting. It's not the type of game for one reason or another that I would expected this level of post launch support. I think they're doing a really like the PC port. I know this is beyond the PC port was really good. They supported that. How'd bug fixes? They're doing these deal. CPAC, like eight, it's really, it's really impressive. It's really admirable. And I like that a lot because they have a lot of systems like the kingdom builder in these randomized dungeons that facilitate adding new content and it's nice that they're taking advantage of that rather than just saying, you know, whatever. Yeah. And hopefully that means it sold well. Yeah, to be totally honest. I stopped playing about fifteen hours in because the code I got in pre release was on the PC and I really, really prefer playing on the PS four and also the cloud saves don't work. You're right show. AC here. No. I have it. It's stuck on a PC. So I do intend to start a new game eventually on piece for maybe..

"The last number that you referred to there's, all, this empty space so by an PS is own consultant contract the most conservative calculation is at, NPS spends and this is all in addition to. What we discussed before NPS spend at least six point. One million dollars last year on, vacant seats empty seats in NPS, schools so we're talking like maintenance and operations for all those empty seats you. Reference some of these schools are, twenty thirty forty percent fall so when we're talking to six million dollars here five point, eight, million dollars. There you know that's like that's about to sex of NPS, is current budget deficit so. You know. You hear some of these NPS officials and some of these. Community activists that are saying well the state of Wisconsin needs, to come. In and essentially bail us out of this budget deficit and they have real significant budget problems and facilities Aren't going to solve it but you know facilities are the second biggest cost driver at Milwaukee public schools and when you, when you look at the. Numbers they can actually you know really go a long way to. Improving their fiscal situation if they just acted responsibility and if they. Followed the law in selling these vacant and underutilized, under you realize Bill why aren't. They fall, into law says if the buildings are underutilized at the buildings are. Vacant you gotta, sell them or at least you have to allow people to sort of co op with, the, with the underutilized building in the same like an independent charter school coopting coopting with a an, existing school that's under capacity why isn't it happened Yeah and I just want to remind your. Listeners in our report we showed that all that, that there's been, a that, there's eleven vacant buildings in every single one of them had a letter of interests. Emitted by charter school or a private school to purchase but why why is all this, happening you know so this is? There, has been a long history of of the city in, Milwaukee public schools not wanting to sell these buildings they view private schools and charter school has competitors is that famous line you know that Michael, bonds aboard board members that was well why would coke Pepsi the state legislature went. In for years ago Well, city of Milwaukee which owns the buildings you have to sell these buildings. But then you, know as, with all, was very, well intended but you know there. Is just. Loopholes that the city and NPS just drove a truck through for, example you're supposed to list every building on a website, that's for sale every vacant and underutilized. Building. And yet there's a number of buildings which we identify in. Our report that should be, sold or should be, listed for sale but just aren't I mean there's a building called Dover which has been empty since two thousand eleven and it's never been listed. On the? City's website as I sale? So yeah? Even at school is actually expressed interest in buying Dover private choice school here's the thing you know you shouldn't you know just.
