And then i had to hire people and build into all this other stuff and seo became important and ranking on google and there so most complexity to it now Now there are some very easy tools out there.

"Localized clients. Who has to go to court or have to go to immigration services for them to pay for me to travel to a high. Oh cincinnati we do have some very dedicated clients but sometimes for them. It doesn't make sense for business definitely. We have corporations over united states over the world and it makes no difference where the wrong. Let's i'm here learning stuff. This one of reasons. I do this so appreciate that so. It's not something. I knew actually New president individual state or if it was a federal. I'm talking about immigration all day all day. all right. well. I don't have any hard stops So you alluded towards This a little bit. Yeah your future marketing strategies. Sounds like you guys are gonna live doing more content. Were your focus more on digital some happy here that A lot of the out of the older firms more traditional firms. Tv billboards and in newspapers things like that. And you're completely right. I mean if we look at all the data analytics and things like that you know i would say sixty seventy percent of your website. Traffic is going to be on a mobile phone. So you gotta get in front of them where they are which could be social media facebook or other websites things like that but on this really the best way to get in front of these Folks is digital means and you can track it in you can You know track your roi return investment as well actually learned at the hard way because our first efforts creating a Website the I guess web developer didn't pay so much attention to the phone version of the website and actually created. You know some problems but now just seeing on how many people look at the website on an actual deaths south versus a phone. You also kind of create strategies that you you You put forward more effort onto creating something user friendly on a phone other than a website because the discrepancies is very large. Like i think over seventy percent from what the traffic that. We're seeing in the coast. We're seeing like you can click to call on our website. We got almost no click to call on the website through a desktop. Almost like over eighty percent of them are coming from the phone and especially in your city. A lot of people near exceeding new jersey metropolitan areas. A lot of people do a lot of long commutes like an hour for example during our there on a founder researching. They're sending us. They're sending us emails. Hey can get a consultation you know. All these inquiries are coming at certain times. And we're seeing that it's around lunch hour and in phila- around commute home after the days over your you're absolutely correct and that's exactly how i would operate. Personally if i'm looking for a lawyer or a service you know say it could be a home type service or whatever you have that time dedicated but you might not have in the office if you work fulltime So those your lunch breaks commuting in. You're going to be on your fun. And so and then when they come to your website or anything that you have online at they can't call you quickly and easily were. The website doesn't load properly. Then you're gonna have less likely a chance to front of the customer so yeah well seems figured out there. That's good not those bigger figure in a very very long ago. I feel like i just started. I always look around. And i feel like i'm joining the party. Sometimes when everybody's already cleaning up up you know but It's very interesting and it's exciting. When i became a lawyer. I didn't know that a lot of just going to be he centring so much of it is going to be censoring on digital south. I personally. I don't have any social media. I don't use it for my personal use but it is for business. I don't think especially after the year the we've had I don't think any business can survive without a very good concrete Flexible i think. That's very important. Flexible online presence. I don't think it's possible nowadays. It's and To that point is almost like you know not having a business card. You know if. I met you right now at a live event networking and you didn't have a card. You know i all right. Well i won't be able to hold you. So it's it's it's imperative that you have social media is up-to-date you use the word flexible because Before instagram we had facebook and instagram popped up and took a little while before businesses. Got over to that platform now. They're all on of tiktok. You have linked in and twitter. So i think for anyone listening you really gotta you gotta figure out which platforms for you. Which ones work best for your business and then have strategy to you. Know to roll out into to harness it but yeah people look at that and say hey are are they posting are they. Are they relevant. Are they still in business. The they're gonna look at your social media for sure and then of course recommendations this absolutely but i feel like instagram for about other law firms but agreession. We have been thinking about her for a long time. And i have to say it's like my final frontier. You can't exactly exactly posted a picture of someone with their green card or their password right. That's very sensitive and then not a lot of people want others to know necessarily that they are an immigrants in this country. People who you would never tell you know that they don't have documents so instagram definitely A little bit of a pickle for us. We're figuring it out. we haven't even started. That's going to be a whole product. Hopefully yeah well. I think you you have to have a strategy for each platform and figure out what kind of content can you put up and who you trying to get in front of and and how do you get in front of him but you know every platform has it can work. It's just a matter of figuring out a strategy to work for your business. So i always tell my clients said in order to get a job done right. You need to go to somebody who actually does it for a living. Somebody was a master of their trade. So i i. I learned myself pretty quickly but a lot of these things. Businesses need helpless. Because you can non be doing a good legal job and then handle all of your marketing strategy by yourself because you're not going to do a good job at either one so it is very important to partner with somebody Who knows marketing as well as you know. Hopefully you're a trade and then the chew can have a very symbiotic relationship than benefits both of you. You know absolutely. I mean the the clients that we work with. It's a mutual relationship. We we know working with the law firm. We don't understand the wall and their practices much as they do. We never will on so. There's definitely a collaboration. That's got to happen Where you bring the marketing strategy but you add a line with the business goals and Near the type of fly so they're working with and and then we're the businesses going to but no one's gonna know that like like you so it definitely requires both parties to work closely together to really make it well. So sometimes i'll tell up if i we'll have a prospect law firm That may be smaller but Have one of the partners to the website themselves and You know we see this law actually What do you bill per hour. And then They'll say oh you know two hundred thousand or trying to get the three hundred thousand Three hundred dollars an hour. I'm sorry two hundred or our in so you know but they're managing building web site in spinning five ten hours a month on on that. So you.

"Chances are the have an in counselor and off council. They're a lot more pract. There's a lot more meetings before they even decide to go with us so we see a lot a lot. Fewer mistakes The only thing. Of course we see if when it's a big corporation and they kind of tried to have their in council can do the work that you really be outsourced to somebody. Who does the state today. Lot of nuances. Gotcha have someone on council. But they're not maybe familiar with immigration law. Exactly yeah somebody. Read the dummy guide or go to and they try to do them south one st. formation event. Sometimes it's kind of hard to go back and six. You know okay so that might be hard to undo what they did. We do a lot of fixing here and we do that to both great answers and i assume there would be two two different answers to the questions. All these might have two different answers Based on how you guys operate but again next question How you go about getting new clients. So i assume different for business of versus individuals. But what do you guys do to get in front of your potential. And the person looking in search i guess again maybe for answers for for business versus individuals. But we do. It's actually pretty much the same answer. Okay so Of course we have an advantage. Because the pharma souls like our phone number has existed since the late seventies. It's been around for a very very long time. So of course there. A lot of repeat business. There's word of mouth or satisfied customers could then go and tell you know their friends and their family or you know sometimes people party. Sometimes they're accountants In terms of Getting new clients. We do have a line presents. I discovered that especially during calls it. That was extremely important. I would put a lot of effort into our website. We're constantly adding content to that and we're actually working on a new project. We're gonna launch a youtube channel. So thanks exciting. I'm not used to this much exposure. But i guess what i did is i started doing micro staff. I started out doing a weekly on thursdays. I just go in front of a camera on facebook lies and i talk about immigration on days. I talk a i. I was talking to the audience of like one person rain and then week after week slowly a reclined started catching on an ongoing or just talk for twenty thirty minutes about a topic on my heart and then we're trying to save and then launch an actual you to Channel on youtube. Good to hear that you guys well. You put effort ends you on the president's websites again. That's what i look at it. That's what i look for. That's what we help. Our clients was but That you guys are invested in that in the youtube channel sounds excellent going live. Were live right now. So everyone watching And and then. This'll be on youtube channel here soon Once get edited. So i love. I love hearing that. So that's console. congrats on making those moves. And an yeah you. Just gotta your Comfort zone a little bit and get out there and talk to people and and Your audience will start the growth. So you'll start to attract more people. Humphry yes definitely not sort of our conference. So they'll of course. I was kind of like you know is there. Marketing strategy has worked particularly well for you. Over the years you kind of hinted towards some of it's your word of mouth and you know the brand been around for a while so Is there any other kind of marketing efforts. You've done that. Produce results whether it be traditional or or digital and we're still exploring Things a lot of vulgar attorneys. I beloved to go on Newspaper or on tv more conventional stuff. But i really believe that the future is align everybody. I know whether a person speaks english or dozen whether they've been here for five days of twenty years the all have some sort of online presence right they they all can do something and i walk around your city and all i see people looking down on their fallen into me like the best marketing strategy. I gotta get in there So we definitely are exploring different options. We do some work with google ads. I don't necessarily find them to be a bath. You know Definitely putting a lot of confidence out there. That's what has been working for us whenever something new and with immigration you really sometimes the news. Come out on a saturday and they come out on saturday and we try to posted everywhere right away and then when we get into the office on monday would try to do a A mass email saying like. Hey re this call us if you have any questions. I'm so far has been the best. What what we see working. Of course you know the great Again the content of other quickly And there's a million ways to get content out there but you're generating the content. I think that in repurposing the content in other areas so whether you push on linked or facebook or your website. Youtube email newsletter. That's a great way to get it up to your existing clients. So i mean it sounds really doing or trying. Allow the right things. It's just i think for every business. It's kind of figuring out what works best for you and it could be different for your geographic location. I knew yeah. Yeah you gotta you gotta tip toe into for sure Do you guys serve The state of new york primarily or new president of the states. well actually Immigration the federal practice. So we can practice anywhere a plus. We do a lot of international where people are located and completely different countries of that especially is for business immigration investment visas instead. They're definitely people have brought to the united states. I've never even met in person. They're corporations that we work with who are all we do. We do video chat. And they're incomplete different part of the world when it comes to family immigration. That's more centralized to new york new jersey because the two states are so close together Funny thing is for someone to get to my office from jersey city actual faster than for someone gets in my office from island so we do a lot of new york new jersey on pretty much almost half and half okay. Excellent so for the business side of things it related. It doesn't matter where they are either way doesn't matter where we are just for.

"Hey there i'm kevin daisy and i'm eric olson. You're listening to the managing partners. Podcast where we interview tob lawyers about how they're growing their firms. All right we are live everyone is. You're just tuning in welcome to another live. Episode of the man's reporters podcast. I've a special guest today. From new york city the talia monroeville welcome sue much seattle. Thanks so much for coming in and joining me today. I kevin thank you for having me. Yes of course. So right into this and tell us a little bit about yourself a little bit of your story which i know a little bit about and how you started your firm right so Our firm will you do exclusively migration all types of different types of immigration firm I was stories actually. Pretty cool The firm our was Started in nineteen sixty by mr colin and The years obviously it wasn't the housing partner. Hopefully that's clear. I took over the farm in two thousand nineteen When the mr cronan tucker were ready to retire so it kind of just brought in some new blood. New ideas new stuff into the farm but we stayed a hundred francs on exclusively immigration excellent. Well give me a little bit about your background because you yourself. You had to get to that process and immigrate into the country If i if i read correctly i did. I did so If you could tell by my accent a little bit. I am an immigrant. I was a kid when i came here but my family did go through the whole immigration process I don't know how much it influenced me going into. Gration wasn't specifically my intention to do so. I kind of just fell into it. I come to love it. It is one of the most diverse the most dynamic areas of law. Sometimes things come out twice a week. You know so. There's always something new happening. You get to need a lot of different people So i i really enjoy well. So speaking of the people you work with clients work with what would you say are some of the challenges that they are faced with When you begin to have this first conversations with them away so that's actually a very interesting question so we do. We do Excuse both immigration. Which is you know. People want to invest and have a visa to common. Stay here in the us or one Big corporations hire lots of people and they need kind of outside talent So the challenges with those clients very different from people who are here over called a family gration when they're trying to gather status and order based on having a relative here so the challenges that face are very very different obvious when would deal with the business immigration and it's it's all numbers business plans and big meetings and left jump on zoom call at nine pm but when we do with people who are coming here to Be with their families or people who are applying for asylum. It is very different dynamic. Because there's a lot of trauma involved though There's a lot of intimate personal conversations when people wanna see a face to face so we have been very good being able to kind of switch back and forth between the two iceland. Well that's a i. I guess i could understand the difference with that actually My life seen recruiting and deals with kind of the employment sided the larger contracts companies. Trying to you know. Hire employees from Other countries that there. So i could see that being completely different than you know on. My family is here and i can't come here and i'm dealing with his situation. So your wife would be one of the people would be dealing with core not necessarily on immigrants themselves. We deal with a lot of hiring managers and accountants and like financial documents goes with the business and migration a of it has to do with like highly specific financial stuff. Then switch over to the family of filo stuff and it's mostly. Would you a lot of psychological evaluations and doctors to get medical reports and stuff like that so you get to be a part of two very different worlds get well i guess the next question may have two different situations as well but okay so you come see you. What are some of the i guess. Communists stakes maybe. The business were of the family of the person trying to what some of the mistakes they make along the way. Maybe before they talk to you or or you know one of the things that they may do that may not be helpful to To there's actually two different answers with So when it comes to family immigration like asylum seekers you know people who are more individual immigration. Their biggest mistake. Is that the first person i talked to is not going to be an attorney. He's going to be one of those like immigration services For anybody who's ever been to like a big city los angeles new york In new york city. There's a lot of these store funds that will say like we'll process your visas. We'll do immigration services so the biggest problem is that they go to people who are not actual attorneys before attorneys. Who don't have a lot of experience don't have a lot of reviews and the biggest problem that we see is being able to fix fix mistakes were made before the person came to us so that is like the biggest issue rate. How when it comes to business. The clientele is a lot more sophisticated in terms of dealing with lawyers rights. If it's big corporation.

From out of Thin Air: Belarus Dissidents' Fates
"Belarus is facing mounting pressure over its detainment of dissident journalist remond porta savage and his girlfriend sofia pay last night. Mississauga appeared in a video.

Underline president of the european commission said there would be new sanctions on belarus. This is an attack on democracy. This is an attack on freedom of expression and this is an attack on european sovereignity and this outrageous behavior needs a strong answer but putting meaningful pressure on. The regime won't be easy. It was very clear from the beginning that this was ordered by alexander lukashenko himself the president. The dictator of belarus ruled it for twenty. Six years are cutting ostrovsky. Economists russia editor to international audience. They said there was a bomb alert. They received an email over tanner's threat so the instructed the pilots to make a u-turn and landed minsk airport.

Interestingly enough there was a different message a few days earlier one of the security chiefs and belarus said they were going to hunt down all the opposition leaders who they consider to be
Russian Opposition Leader Navalny Moved to Prison Hospital
"Alexei navalny the jailed reason. Opposition leader has been transferred to what authorities are describing as a prison hospital. But what is supporters. Say is just a different jail with some medical staff onsite. Navalny has now been on.

Vassily ever who is moscow correspondent for the telegraph the talia. Thanks for coming on the show. What do we know about navalny's conditioned.

Term on Independent doctors have looked at the test and said that the petition station but they seem levels are too dangerous and will win with a patient with levels like that they should be treated in intensive care but again so far and independent doctor has not been allowed to see him and He has been transferred to another prison.

Is something shifting in Russia?
"It is no small thing for a russian citizen to challenge russia's government prominent critics risk of exile imprisonment own murder. Everyone else takes their chances with the tender mercies of russia's riot police but the challenges keep coming in recent weeks in particular. Large protests have been inspired by the latest persecutions of opposition figurehead alexei navalny. He's attempted assassination via poisoned underwear. He's medical evacuation to germany his return to russia and removal to a penal colony. This week navalny has been back in the dock in moscow on arcane charges of insulting a war veteran as is usually the case in such circumstances the very absurdity of the accusation is part of the lesson being taught which is that the powers that be can come for anybody for any reason this weekend. More protests are nevertheless scheduled a significant number of russians appear to have reached a perilous point for any authoritarian regime that of being passed caring about the consequences of dissent. These are not the first protests against president vladimir putin. But are they different. Are we on the verge of something seismic shifting in russia. This is the foreign desk. We have reached a point of no return and they felt that taken to the street was the only way to express their unhappiness with how things are going not just with aleksey navales jailing but also with the kremlin's foreign policy and declining living standards and declining incomes because this is not a genuine democracy. That doesn't mean that anything will change. Imminently the security forces at present a loyal the risks in coming out against the regime are just so vastly greater than anything to be gained but we are talking about the slow shabby decline rather than i would suggest at the moment. Any kind of dramatic cracking. It's only bolts the struggle between modernization and archaic way of life and put is a symbol of this archaic understanding of the universe and as we see as a socialist demonstrates that new generations are supporting navan the or not simply in the violence but he's way of understanding of the world. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm andrew miller on joint. First of all by natalya vasilyeva moscow correspondent for the daily telegraph natalia. First of all. Let's talk about this weekend. As i understand at the weather forecast is very very very much not encouraging for large-scale public protests. So what actually is planned. Hi andrew thank you for having me. Yes we're in the middle of a massive snowstorm bought. It's supposed to be over by sunday lunchtime. Which is when the protests are planned. The main opposition protests. This weekend's will be a sunday. Flash mob as the organizers called it they're asking on russians to come out of the houses and to stand yards for something as little as ten minutes and flash the torch on their phones. There's also going to be a couple of smaller. I would think rallies on sunday afternoon including a solas chain by women who want to express their support for the wife of alexey navalny. But that's pretty much all we have at the moment but you know i should also say that the two weekends of protests were also held pretty adverse weather conditions. As is you know it was cold and snowy so. I shouldn't think that the weather should be in the way on sunday. And it's not hard to discern the strategic thinking behind these decentralized protests. You can't very well send out riot. Police against people standing in their own front yards all over a city. The size of moscow wilson petersburg or any other russian city in fact. So do we have any idea how the authorities are likely to react to a protest of this sort. Well it's interesting that you ask because we did hear statements from the police and even prosecutors warning people against showing up for something that does not constitute a public assembly let alone a illegal public assembly. Obviously i don't expect right police to show up at every person's front door but if we see any source of flash mobs around town any gatherings and on central locations i think that might be a police response but i definitely don't expect anything as big violent as we saw two weeks ago. What's been your sense over. The past few weeks of where people are finding against the reserves of courage to participate in any demonstration against the russian state. Because it's not a small undertaking. Everybody who makes any kind of protesting. Russia will be aware of the risk. They are taking. What is it about this moment. That has led so many people to be able to get past that fear. It's interesting because when i interviewed people at the two rallies. I went to at the end of january.

Biden's Catholicism Could Influence The Abortion Debate, Activists Say
"President Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States. He's also a supporter of abortion rights. Ah, position at odds with official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. During the first White House press briefing of the Biden administration, a reporter from a Catholic network asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about Biden's abortion policies. I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning. NPR's Sarah McCammon examines what binds Catholicism's could mean for the abortion debate for Catholic activists like Marjorie Dannenfelser. President Biden's high profile example of a Catholic who supports abortion rights is troubling. It's a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country. Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony list, which has worked for years to help confirm conservative Supreme Court justices. She's particularly disturbed by Biden's embrace of a broader push among Democrats to repeal the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding for most abortions. Ah, position he took in 2019 while running for the Democratic presidential nomination. After decades of supporting hide. The church itself has not changed. And its view ever on the dignity of human life and the need for its protection. He can't bring the Catholic Church along with him because of his political needs. But for those who like to see the church take a more permissive stance on issues including abortion, Biden's election is an opportunity. Jamie Manson is president of Catholics for choice. There are many issues in which Catholics are descending from the bishops and seeing that these are complex moral issues, whether it's same sex marriage, whether it's contraception or whether it's abortion Holding suggests a majority of American Catholics support abortion rights in most or all cases, and most Catholic women say they've used contraception, which the church also opposes. With a conservative Supreme Court majority and Biden in the White House. Manson predicts continued battles over issues including conscience exemptions, for example, for pharmacists who object to dispensing the morning after pill or employers who oppose including contraceptive coverage in their health plans. What I hope one of the impacts on public policy will be is to say, Listen, that is not what religious freedom is about religious freedom is about No one being oppressed or having their civil rights loss because of individual religious beliefs. Conservative Catholics, meanwhile, worry Biden will roll back Trump administration policies that they've seen as a victories for religious liberty. Already, the administration has said Biden is preparing to reverse the Mexico City policy, which prohibits US funding for organizations that perform or refer patients for abortion and other countries. But a study in the journal The Lancet found that the policy actually increased the abortion rate in some countries, most likely because it also reduced access to contraception. Natalia Imperatori Lee is a progressive Catholic theologian and religious studies professor at Manhattan College in New York. So I think the biting from a policy perspective is going to do things that end up Reducing the number of abortions, however, divided the rank and file. The church's position remains the same. On Inauguration Day, The U. S conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement praising Biden's piety but expressing deep concern about several of his positions, including his support for abortion rights. Sarah McCammon.

Martin was the greatest. Oh you should see. The sword mar made for me last week. It schumer's like moonlight on the water. Well you should see the shield he made for me. It glistened like the stars. I don't doubt it. The suit of armor he made for me is so shining so bright. It's reflects i chimera. Martin lived with his children natalia. And conrad in a tiny house at the edge of town. Martin's shop was in the basement talia and conrad loved traipsing down the steps to watch their father work i. He retired on his thick leather apron. Then he would heat up his medal into glow to fiery yellowish orange and grew soft and bendable after that he would use a heavy iron hammer to forge the metal into all different shapes. Then you would let the metal cool and he polished rubbing and scrubbing until indeed. It reflected like a mirror one summer morning. Martin told natalia conrad that he would be gone for the day on business. Listen you to. I need to deliver a full suit of armor to a customer who lives far off in the countryside. He turned to natalia natalia. You're the oldest. So i want you to look after your little brother. While i'm gone of course father i'd be happy to conrad rolled his eyes. Oh come on father.

Natalia turned to conrad with twinkling eyes. I have an idea little brother. The circus is in town. They're performing in the market square right in the middle of the city. Would you like to see it. Conrad's face broke into a grin. You bet i liked to see the circus. Let's go when natalia and conrad reached the market square. They were greeted by all sorts of enchanting sites. Agile walkers tiptoeing towering tightropes graceful acrobats swinging from flying trapezes plus nimble-fingered jugglers funny face clowns and hearted riders standing breath and tall on the backs of gleaming galloping horses during a break in the show. Natalia and conrad wandered around the square and saw vendors selling all sorts of goodies toys. Books candies but then. Hey natalia something else caught conrad's look over there. Look conrad pointed toward a jagged heap of stones in a shadowy narrow alley off the square. There's the old stone building to one worthy. Say the bacilus cliffs. Natalia felt her blood run. Cold everyone in town knew the legend of the basilisk. It was said that the bacilus kept the body of a dragon. The head of a rooster tail of a serpent down in the dink dark cellar of the old stone building. The bacilus stood guard over a magnificent treasure and if you stared into the bacilus glowing red eyes you would immediately turn to stone so sister conrad's mouth lifted into a mischievous smile.

"Now, after the week off nationwide protests on the issue Poland's president under studio has given his view on abortion. Last week, the country's conservative government successfully adopted a near total ban on abortion. But yesterday in a radio interview, the president said women should have the right to have an abortion when the fetus they're carrying. Has lethal congenital defects.

And when the president spoke on this radio show, giving his views was that a surprise It is absolutely because so far the message is coming from the government were absolutely of a different nature. We had the deputy prime minister of questions he who was also the leader of the Law and Justice Party, and he called on Christian Catholics to form self defense units to protect the churches and the traditional values, and there was immediately a reaction to this.

All the entrances of the churches as they did on Sunday and then you know, On the other hand, you have the opposition. Calling on the government not to publish the ruling and absolutely nothing till the polenta is over. What does it mean now, though, I mean, where does it leave it, Especially given what the president said. Do you think this is going to have a change? Because I mean, this is something that's already been adoptive into law, Isn't it all? Do you feel there'll be a change of view within the government or within the opposition, bringing some fresher to bet? This is an incredibly difficult question that everyone is asking themselves right now in Poland, because you know this ruling has been issued by the Constitutional Tribunal in the theory is biting not be appealed. So there are so many legal questions like how can you proceed right now? And to the illness, the only solution that appears To be, you know, realistic right now. It's just not publish it. Right, Natalya. Thank you very much for joining us. Natalia or Jessica in Warsaw.

"natalia" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Natalia that this guy who's a researcher at the university of California Berkeley thank you so much for being with us of course you're listening to weekend edition from NPR news from KQED news I'm Tiffany Cham high for decades San Francisco's Chinatown was home to a handful of banquet halls there places where east Asian communities gather to celebrate things like birthdays graduations and weddings but some of these halls which are usually a part of restaurants are disappearing and that's worried some neighborhood leaders here to talk about this is San Francisco chronicle's reporter Janelle Baker high do now hi so I think everyone can picture what a banquet hall looks like but we should say we're not talking about something you would find at a veteran's hall yeah well first of all they tend to be really massive lake for five hundred to nine hundred people and they have a ten person round tables scattered throughout and usually huge chandeliers that way they can be ready for a wedding at a moment's notice so they're very ornate and beautiful on the inside I'm wondering is gentrification playing a role in the disappearance of some of these banquet halls well the over arching narrative you'll tend to hear is that it's the wedding issue historically as you mentioned earlier they were really popular for weddings and the wedding at trend is falling off a lot of second and third generation Chinese Americans are doing more westernized weddings instead of the traditional huge banquet hall weddings but I think another factor is a lot of people who are raised in Chinatown and find success and up leaving and moving to the suburbs and that's actually where you're seeing new banquet restaurants open places like Dublin in family Andro in Alameda but the other huge concern as far as gentrification goes is what is going in the place of these historic thank all restaurants and lately that has been fine dining restaurants and are they still Chinese owner or east Asian owned yeah the two do that have come along so far both Chinese owned and the owners have roots in Chinatown and they're serving Chinese food it's just at a higher price points with two hundred dollar tasting menus and the concern is that people who live in Chinatown can't for it to go to these higher end restaurants Chinatown tends to attract new immigrants many of them lower income and many of them not speaking English very well but the banquet halls still play a huge role in day to day Chinatown living there are just standard community meetings that happened there during the day at luncheons family association gathering new Asia one of the last remaining banquet hall restaurant reportedly does three hundred banquet thing here so there is concern that if this trend continues all of these big spaces will just be shot out to the community and is there a movement to preserve these banquet halls at all that is the big question there is another high end restaurants planning to open this spring in the empress of China which closed in twenty fourteen some community activists filed an appeal with the city to call into question whether that state should still be a restaurant or should be used for something more community oriented so I think there are transient community leaders looking outside the box trying to figure out if there are ways to preserve the space for the community and turn them into something else the community can use or trying to get restaurant owners to maybe add a banquet hall component that could be at least a Chinatown community okay thank you so much to know thank you that was Janelle bit care she's a reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle we'll tweet out a link to.
Hurricane Irma May Have Destroyed Barbuda's Generations-Old Land System
"On the Caribbean island of barbecued a land cannot be bought or sold. The whole island is shared communally. And it's been that way since the eighteen hundreds but planet money any Sara Gonzalez went there and found that capitalism is creeping in. Antigua and Barbuda are two islands. That make up one country. Antigua is mountainous and touristy see with about ninety eight thousand residents. That's where the government is Barbuda's flat flat like a penny with just fifteen hundred residents. It's the kind of island where wild donkeys. Angie's just walk into your home call and where no one wants lobster anymore. We love breakfast. We did for lunch for dinner. We'd love to three times a day. That's Atkinson Beezer beautiful. Bob Yuda when this is Natalia. John Calls her. Hey go take out new. And they both got land for their homes. The way everyone else in Barbuda's gets it people just go cut what they want. Clear it and stop bill. Just take a piece of land and be like okay. There's my this is my land. That's so that's so. We usually do perfect. No money no money not even taxes not even taxes then even like a permit fee nothing like really zero zero dollars zero zero dollars free free. No paperwork no lease no title Bob.

The grio says this English Guy Christopher conjuring ten least the whole island of Bermuda from the king. Oh Yeah Cadran. On on was a slave master. He had his slaves over there. The entire island was made up of five hundred. Enslaved people at its peak and one white manager and his family and when slavery was abolished and the white manager finally left. There were no white people on the island. Just formerly enslaved people so they stayed so the people are left alone left. They're they're sorta live happy. Held the whole island in common. That's what it's called and no one ever came in and said but wait wait. You need property. Titles at some point Barbadians do start leasing. Land there are a few beachfront hotels and resorts but barbadians never sold the land and it stayed this way until twenty seventeen when hurricane. Irma had a lot of win. And then you you just just say a window Saturday. Birthday Bash. You know this. Is Natalia John Again. Almost all the buildings Bermuda were damaged know roofs. No doors Barbieri. We're totally exposed. And they heard another hurricane was coming in three days. The prime minister who lives in Antigua orders a mandatory evacuation and barbarians are like wait everyone the entire island. Everybody Alpha Bob. Yuda really the Prime Minister Gaston Brown. Says the government doesn't have the money to rebuild. Any focuses focuses on the island's most obvious acid. The land says he thinks his whole communal land thing is a big misunderstanding. Which is the Bob? wtdn have always carried this myth. Perhaps maybe a couple of hundred years that they own the land. You say that Barbuda's I have been thinking that they own the land. It is a myth that they own the land but there is a law that parliament the Antiguan. Barbian government passed. That says I just want to read. The the first sentence says enact to confirm that all land in Barbuda's is owned in common by the people of Barbuda right so so it was a dangling piece of legislation he repeals. The law tells Barbadians that you have been living on for free all these years new plan. We're going to sell it to you for one dollar eastern Caribbean. About thirty seven cents. US and now you'll have a title and you can take title to a bank to get a loan. Mm to rebuild your home that type of property rights system is quintessential to the advancement of e country.

That's where the government is. Barb Yuda is flat flat flat like it looks like a penny wow. I've never seen an island that clap before you could drive across bar in about thirty minutes.

My brother couldn't say Talia so he would just say hey. Hey Hey gal was born in Barbados. Her Mom and her grandma were to you. She actually lives in her grandma's house. She has her own plot of land to but she hasn't built anything on it yet. No not as yet but I have my sign and my stone on it so nobody can take. What does that mean? You're sand in your stone just to show that something is going to happen on that land who you put some sand sand and some stone down just to show that. Something's going to happen on that land soon. So don't take it because in Barbuda land isn't and something you buy and sell. It's something you just have people. Just go cut what they want. Clear it and stop bill. You get your steak or whatever and you bill just take a piece of land and be like okay. There's my this is my land. That's so that's so. We usually do perfect for a free no money no money.

No title just a whole sixty two square mile tropical island shared community and informally. This is why we came to Buta by say they don't just own the plot of land and they put a fence on they own and share the whole island collectively all three sources all the land. They use it in common. That's what it's called. Most of us know where the line is available. You know what is available sometime. Somebody's but hey you didn't say anything to show so they just get an expedia desk. This is student put offensive. So get the next chunk. Only Barbuda's have this right people on the neighboring island Antiga the can't claim land in Buta even though it is the same country you have to be born in Barbuda and have a grandparent born in Barbados or parent. That's the only rule. And that's is basically how it's worked since the eighteen hundreds but now all that might change can you say hello and welcome to planet Welcome to planet money. Today are went onto them. Bob You the right. Yeah I'm Sarah. I'm Scott Gurion from his podcast far from home. Owning lands individually with title is one of the basics of old school capitalism but getting a little piece of paper breath at says. Yes you own this lot not.

"natalia" Discussed on The Kindle Chronicles
"Take time after the interview. Italia Montessori joined Amazon in March twenty thirteen in Sao Paulo Brazil where she was responsible for kindle direct publishing two years later she joined the K. d. p. team based in Seattle and focused on author acquisition in an engagement globally since July twenty seventeen. She has led kindle unlimited and prime reading before joining Amazon. Natalia worked in various as companies in China and for the Boston Consulting Group in Brazil she has a BA in East Asian studies from Yale and an MBA. From from work work. I spoke with her in Seattle by Skype and phone on Wednesday November twentieth and I began by asking her why she decided to go to work for Amazon. Six years ago. I was working for the Boston Consulting Group in Brazil at the time and I had read. That Amazon is coming to Brazil. I had been an Amazon customer during my MBA BA and like the company a lot but it wasn't necessarily in vogue as much as it is now for NBA Graduates and when I went when I reached out to the company as they were just getting their presence in Brazil. I met some of the people there I talked to some of my classmates who had joined Amazon in Seattle and I think it was just drawn at that point where true sort of startup environment they. They hadn't even launched in Brazil when I had my first conversation with them just to give you an idea that was in October of twenty twelve. They launched in December twenty twelve. I joined March first first twenty thirteen. It's interesting because when I graduated from Harvard Business School many years ago everybody's going to Wall Street and in a more. The recent period technology companies but at that time was Amazon perceived more as a retailer than a technology company. That might be a little more exciting for an MBA. For Yeah and I think in general When I graduated from Business School which was twenty? Eleven there weren't as many people people going into technology full stop. They were still doing some of finance hedge funds private equity a little bit less on the banking side a lot to consulting Also on the corporate side they would go more into brand management slash marketing for consumer companies. And we did have a recall recall. I think about five or six people who went from my class to Amazon in the OPS program or the as you mentioned like a retail leadership ship development program the interview process. I've heard some people say is pretty intensive. You talked to more than one person and you get asked a lot of questions What was the most probing and perhaps a skillful question? You got asked in that process. Good I'm trying to remember now. I remember member. It's so vividly that day there were a lot of questions in for one particular interview that centered around the customer and the customer turned away. Amazon treats the customer the end customer the customer clicking the buy button consuming Amazon retail products or in our case reading kindle. Books is it was just not not a stakeholder that I've had a lot of contact with in my career and so they gave me a few scenarios and I tried my best to work through those scenarios but up most of the customers that I had had to date had either been clients through like an agency relationship or consulting The clients or internal stakeholders so it was a little bit of a different way to think about You know the end customer but it's also super exciting. Which is something that people love about working at Amazon? That no matter what level you are what business you're in. You are asked to encouraged and inspired to be customer obsessed. That's interesting you can see that it starts even with conversations with people who haven't joined the company so that would make sense. I will now kill unlimited started in July of two thousand fourteen about five years ago. Six hundred thousand kindle titles thousands of audio books I I think I signed up as soon as it was available as very intrigued by the idea and I I use IT I. We might have a chance to talk about my experience of it I i. I'm glad I have it and I I probably buy or or borrow. Maybe five books month from my kindle unlimited subscription and. I'm always sort of kicking off One of the ten books that I have to make room for the new one and I very seldom actually read the books that are on my list of ten books but it still feels valuable to me because I get a chance to try a book without having to to pay for it. Because I've got the kindle on limited but I guess I'm just sharing that as the context for I've been although I've been a member of kindle and limited I I haven't been following it as intently as I'm sure you have in your role as general manager so it'd be good chance just to give an overview of it has the program evolved in the last five years what are the the highlights in terms of the scale and the and the offerings in now compared to then since the launch the kindle limited team has remained focused on delighting customers with books that they'll love. That's the premise of the program. Right and we can do that in lots of ways. So we do that in one way through the catalog itself. So the catalog has evolved from you. Know Six hundred thousand kindle titles to over a million titles the authors that are part of the kindle limited ranks have evolved as well we have Books from Dean Koontz. We have tolkien. I and e wear jody All sorts of you know new authors are coming onto The scene that weren't necessarily there as part of our launch. That's something that keeps the the program exciting In many cases we also have exclusive titles so titles that you can only find on kindle Those are available in kindle unlimited as well we have some celebrity authors coming onto the scene next year like Mindy Kaeling which are exciting for customers as well? We've signed on some new publishers. Which means new offers some of the popular ones over the last year have been Daniel Silva Neil gaiman? Joanna Gaines for example. That's on the E. Brookside Hedlund We continue to grow our audio book. Catalogue we continue to grow our comics offering which wasn't a big part of our launch but uh we had for example one of the favorites last year with last answer which was pretty fun to have a new movie tie? That's something that that's a that's a reader moment that We see as well folks who want to read the book or the commack related as it relates to the movie. The other the last point I'll call out. Land is around the magazines. We didn't have magazines when we launched. We launched in two thousand sixteen. We have a rotating eating catalogue of magazines. And it's really helps us be part of different reader moments whether you're sitting down to do a long binge read a series or you want something light for the airplane Wanna be able to offer readers a wide range of content and actually would led to my asking. If there be like you I could talk to his. I noticed on my iphone kindle APP Probably last month I got a notification Shen that was highlighting the magazines that were available that month and say that each month. The selection of magazines changes and I hadn't realized that I knew they were magazines. Aga's jeans but I thought it was maybe just a steady Selection of them and I frequently use the New Yorker when it showed up. But what can you say about how so much. That list changes each month. And how do you decide when to drop a magazine when data magazine to list their new magazines all the time I like each week. Their new magazines coming into the program. What we try to do is offer a wide selection? So we'd have something for home we'd have something for fashion. We'd have something for travel. And that's appeals to a wide range of interests You mentioned the New Yorker at that one in particular has been in twice this year for example We've had other ones that have come in an out and so again we're just trying to connect with leaders and a wide range of moments For when they might sit down. One open their kindle APP to read when I counted the magazines that are available this month November I count at Sixty one is does that number the total available change much each month. Love your about right. It's about sixty sixty five each month. Just add the magazine type type. Content is being added a new feature called articles where we've sorts Interesting timely articles From different magazines like things like you know Marie condo article a health and wellness article and we put those on what we call the kindle unlimited storefront so it's Amazon Dot com fats lashed kindle unlimited. And you'll see their row of articles at any given time. Okay so when I go Amazon. Dot Com slash kindle unlimited limited then is articles one of the categories that I can click connor. How would I find those single one of the rose? There that you that you would have included articles As well as magazine features in our weekly newsletter so kindle limited customers can sign up to receive a weekly personalized newsletter where we talk about some new content in the program we make some recommendations that relate to books that that you read in the past and we include new additions like well we now we have this magazine or now. We have these articles. And if folks want are in kindle limited hidden for some reason aren't signed up to that newsletter they can go to the same place that I just mentioned Amazon Dot com slash kindle unlimited and theories a little tab right under the big banner that says join the newsletter and you can click on that. And it'll take you to a page where you opt in to receive those canals. That's a good tip. I didn't know about that so now. I'm on that page. I see kindle unlimited and along the top I see can limited prime reading where. Where's The rain the banner? Did you see that banner. That's browse the catalogue. Manage your membership and then join the so so click on join the newsletter. And then I'm just going to can lend limited so okay so I just click that button and so so now it's part of and I do subscribe to some of the other newsletters from Amazon. And now that's activated as one that I receive but now does it turn orange if I've selected or if I haven't selected own Orange if you have I don't right now okay okay so I think I was actually subscribed so how did that's not weekly. It doesn't seem like shows. Does it show up just occasionally about once a week does okay. There's different versions of it. That go out depending on different customer groups right and so if I subscribed to it I'm going to see things in the newsletter glitter that take into account how actually using my kindle unlimited subscription but the other thing I'll say is we want to show you that right because we want it to be customized for you pull we also hear from customers is. She'll be something different. That's why apart it kindle limited not to just read one kind of book but to have a little bit of the freedom Without necessarily to spend more money but I can browse different categories. I personally have used the service that we hear that from customers as well. Yeah one thing. I like about the magazines that show up. You've got two different views. One as sort of the kindle view. It's just the text and and you can Read it like you would a kindle book and then the I don't know what you call the other view it looks more just like a pdf of the actual magazine page. What do you call those two views? Let's the global view. Yeah refillable is more like a reading kindle book it did doesn't have all the art in it and then the other one is like a page view that looks more like you're just looking at the print magazine replica. Yeah yeah and I find it. Nice to be able to switch between those two views because sometimes it's it's pleasing to see how magazine it's taking the time to lay out an article. But then other times I just want to read the words and I. It's my choice. I can just switch between the two. You said that the magazines start showing up at twenty sixteen so three years. Here's what kind of customer reaction have you had Two adding magazines too can limited. Customer.

"My guest this week is Natalia Montessori. She is General Manager for kindle unlimited and prime reading. There's so many types of readers. There's so so many reasons and so we're just trying to do is make a service that's really valuable and compelling to delight. Readers spoke with her this week from Seattle. I wanted to catch up with changes that have been made in can unlimited since the program was first introduced. I've been a member ever since and also about prime reading which is the selection of books that you can get If you are prime member but you haven't paid nine ninety nine four kindle unlimited also have Some news Interesting article article in the Wall Street Journal about how Amazon is turning into a CEO. Factory for the rest of the tech industry. Alexis seems to be gaining on Google. And I'll have some highlights from what kinds of savings Amazon is cut in store for black. Friday I up in news is a well researched and well written story by Dana. Muttiah solely in the Wall Street Journal on November Twenty th two thousand nineteen titled. Old Amazon has become America's C. E. O. Factory The reason I say there's a lot of research on this as The reporter contacted at least fourteen gene former Amazon executives. Who are now CEOS elsewhere or entrepreneur starting their own companies? It lists the number of years that they were at Amazon and the most most recent title and they did some interviews with these people which gave an idea of why Amazon is leading to creation of other other opportunities for people that have trained in Amazon philosophy under Jeff Bezos But also what was that cultured Amazon that they left and in the process says there is some criticism of the harshness of the Amazon culture. I think More than one of these former Amazon executives said that they brought a lot of the things they learned to Amazon but they tried to leave the sense that It's IT'S A it's a culture which which doesn't prize social cohesion over Originality of Fahd and getting to the right answer and that echoes. Some of the things you hear from time to time that it's a it's a it's a challenging culture and but I I'll have linked to it in the show notes and I the some of the takeaways that I had from reading at one thing I noticed was that there. They did have a comment comments from Amazon which I was glad to see pushing back on some of these descriptions of the culture and one came from Jeff Wilkie He said I really like our culture a he said it's not for everyone you know. He took A. He's a very reasonable person and his I wouldn't say rebuttal but feedback on what the reporter was saying. I thought was is reasonable. I think it also shows it's another indication that perhaps Jeff Wilkie is being positioned to be the heir to Jeff Bezos of Jeff Decides to head off and do blue origin and some of his other activities full-time and that's something. I picked up at that remorse event in Las Vegas where he's to have a more prominent role in the program even though Jeff Bezos was there and attended one session so Jeff Wilkie Awesome good comments in here. The thing is it really emphasized the import so the fourteen leadership principles. I hear about them all the time. When I'm talking to people from Amazon they they can quote them? You know. It's clearly not just things which get hung on a wall. And you're going to hear from Natalia how the principles the philosophy principals actually have a role in the interviewing and that's also mentioned in the Wall Street Journal article the other thing I thought about after reading the article it was. You know hearing a loose talk about breaking up Amazon breaking up tech companies especially on the campaign trail and I think that if it's true that Amazon is generating being entrepreneurial management talent that spreads out into other parts of the Corporate sector in the. US If you break up the company You have an impact on the company. And maybe you would be killing the golden goose that has bring so much innovation out into other companies companies kind of a secondary effect. That could come from an unskillful way of Regulating Amazon and some of the other companies. They may comparisons with Ge. And I in my day. Ge was played the same kind of role that if you had done time at ge that was almost as good is going to Harvard. Business School you. You learn the G. Way and check welches philosophy and G No longer has their role. It's fallen on hard times uh-huh and that's another indication that just because you're big like ge or Amazon there's no guarantee that he that your impact lasts forever. The AH comments about Amazon's culture raised this issue of is it is the culture that is kind of light on empathy because you're asked to be challenging and to be able to tolerate Difficult conversations behalf of the customer on behalf of innovation that It's a tough place to work at. I've you know in the people I talk to. I don't get that impression and when I talked to Brad stolen the guy who wrote the everything store four I think when he when I asked him that he said you know I I hear both ways of it being described some people really like the culture other people say yes. It is very tough very stressful. And that I think echoes what Jeff Wilkie said in his quote As well it's a tribute to how Bezos has embedded the culture throughout the company. I think in this article. That's that's not the main point. But it's inescapable when you Z.. Everyone referring these fourteen liters principles and then also Just ways of managing like the the six page memo that starts out a meeting on a new project people. Read it for half an hour and silence and the two pizza groups that you're not supposed to have cross functional group that can't be fed with two pizzas. Things like this are are now becoming part of other companies ways of doing things because they got their start at Amazon Second Article I noticed this week. I you know I had thought Google was gaining on Alexa and I think is what is the first came amount with his devices. I've got one on my desk. Google assistant very attractive in the ice seem very smart but this story that I saw in c net by corine right right chart Quoted market estimate by a company named Canales C. A. N. A. L. S. in Portland Oregon. And that's a company that does research estimates of share on technology channels and for the third quarter of twenty nineteen. They estimated needed that Amazon shipped. Ten point four million echo devices this is worldwide and that compared that was sixty six percent increase from year-earlier by comparison Google only shipped three point five million devices and that was a decline of forty percent. Amazon was also doc shipping way more of the smart speakers than Alibaba three point nine million by three point seven million and ex WCHS IS A. Oh Am I how to say that. Three point four million so combine. Those three Chinese companies did Sell more smart speakers than Amazon. Eleven eleven million compared with ten point four million but the Amazon growth rate is pretty high at sixty six percents. Those Chinese companies are growing faster from a smaller Baso. It would sure there's going to be plenty of competition coming from there The analyst at economists attributed the Better results for for Alexa Echo. To the ECHO UPGRADE program a lot of new devices that were rolled out when I was out there in Seattle and the Echo studio speakers speaker should be shipping. Pretty Soon I'll be really interested to see how that turns out and then also the prime day from oceans which really give the echo devices is a boost. The third story is Black Friday sales. I got a press release dated November eighteenth that laid out some of the things that are coming and when I went through that I could see that there are some pretty good echo promotions that are already in effect today. November twenty second. They'll be lasting through black Friday the Friday after November and I'm sure they'll be other sales As well the way.

"Alone can follow you until you die. We hope that's where it stops would suck if you're still paying off your loans in heaven. You know Jesus and Martin Luther King Junior like hey we go right Unicorns you wanna come and you can't go to work a shift at blockbuster in heaven. That's where they all know blockbuster the points the point is student at is affecting everyone. Young people old the people the village people I mean. Why do you think living at the YMCA so whether you're a parent or a kid? There was a good chance that student debt is negatively affecting your quality of life because old people losing social security and young adults are being forced to move back in fact if something drastic doesn't change it's going to reshape the American family forever. Okay so my last question is I want to go to the place where Natalia. Abrams is the new such secretary of Education. Take what would you do on day one to fix this problem. WILL I. I would hire Seth Rodman and row hit. Show friends other really really amazing people you know. I always say that. I'm an armchair policy person. And I'm an advocate and activist at heart but I would make sure shore that we we listened to the millions of borrowers. That have been been going through this and we looked at them as the first injured party so we started with working on the student. Loan that aspect than we have to go to curbing college costs and making college debt free or free so we don't see the situation can happen again so that would be my first move in this weird alternative were world that I'm secretaries as well. Stranger things have happened look at bets. Aw Yeah I never say never say never. I shouldn't think I could do a better job than the current people. That's what I've always felt that I want my leaders to be smarter than me and I sadly do not show that way right now. I don't I don't know maybe the worst thing to ever happen to the American middle class is the thirty year mortgage in the years following World War. Two consumers bought houses based on how much they they could afford to pay for the House with the advent of extended mortgages people stopped thinking about the total price and started thinking about how much they could afford per per month banks obviously love it with the amount of interest paid over all those years they make a killing and because the total cost wasn't as readily apparent Erin developers. Just keep jacking up their prices a house. which sold in the nineteen fifties in New Hampshire for eight thousand dollars now sells calls for more than two hundred thousand dollars? It's keeping the people poor and the bankers and developers you know the Kushner's and the trump's rich and now we do the same thing with education. It's no longer about the value for the price or even about the return on the investment for most the return and will almost never catch up with the monthly payment that will follow many into Middle Age it keeps us from achieving our full potential as individuals and as a culture.
