Israel Begins Phased Reopening To Citizens With Proof Of 2 COVID-19 Shots
"Life might be like as the pandemic lessons. It is vaccinated a higher portion of his citizens than any other country, about a third of had both doses. And this week is real started opening new doors to people who've had their shots. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports that includes places like gyms and the theater. Many businesses in Israel still aren't ready to open. But it's opening night at the first Israeli Indoor theater to put on a play after months of lockdown, Adam thinking and usher at Jerusalem's fun theater checks, tickets and something called a green pass, just taking their green a passport. It's called Check that they have been vaccinated or that there were sick and then the better Israelis one week after their second shot or recovered from the virus can print out a government issued green Pass. With their I d number and a Q R code. This is all very new. The Usher doesn't have a scanner, so he holds up the pass and asked the mostly senior age theatergoers. To recite their I d numbers by heart to make sure no one's cheating. Just make sure to make sure that they're not for you. Someone else's you know, it's not a picture. If you don't have a green pass, you can't see the show. Tear to post Glinski and or REITs. Come here come early. We feel its pioneers mean it doesn't matter what they're performing. We've come It's been way too long Since we were here. Do you feel safer, knowing that everyone in the audience will be with a green past? That's essential. It would have been worrisome if we had to sit in a closed theater with lots of people breathing at us. If we didn't know they both got both vaccines. We've been waiting for people to take responsibility and do that. Not everyone has. Vaccinations are available to all Israeli adults. But 40% of those in their twenties haven't done it. Some think they're healthy and don't need it. Others have heard false rumors of bad side effects. The promise of a green pass is a popular incentive. You can't get into a hotel theater or Jim without one. The vaccination center in the city of Petra Tikva. A D. Sheer nervously waits in line. The only reason that I'm going to get this vaccine is because I want to go to the gym. So it works. The pressure works. Yes, the pressure works way stop by a nearby gym and watch a young man still not fully vaccinated. Get turned back at the entrance. While 50 year old of fear on the El finishes his first wait routine in a year. I feel safe for now. I don't know what will be in 22 years. I want to leave now next door. There are hardly any vaccines for Palestinians in the West Bank in Gaza in Israel, the issue is that some Israelis refused to get vaccinated. One lawyer representing vaccine refuse ear's says some employers threatened to fire them or put them on unpaid leave until they agree to get vaccinated. There was a similar dilemma at the theater director hoodie Ben Moshe says his stage manager, and some actors didn't want to get vaccinated. So he pleaded for us both for us. We want to work. They want to come back and work. Please do it for us, and he says they agreed. Now, an hour before curtain. The director is worrying about something else that scared the death tonight. The audience first with that funny mask off faces. They still believe it. Jeter will still work this magic. He had nothing to worry about. The audience laughed through their masks. The play is no cowards, Life spirit translated into Hebrew. Light comedy just with the audience needed. Daniel Estrin. NPR NEWS Jerusalem When David
Lawmakers press acting Capitol Police chief on January 6 preparations
"Heard more testimony today about why Capitol police were ill prepared to fend off a violent insurrection last month by pro Trump extremists. Acting police Chief Yoga Nonda. Pittman deny the agency failed to take seriously warnings of violence before the January 6th attack that led to the deaths of five people. No credible threat indicated that tens of thousands would attack the U. S. Capitol. Nor did the intelligence received from the FBI or any other law enforcement partner indicates such a threat. Pittman says an FBI warning of violence sent the day before the attack was received by the capital police but wasn't forward it to her. She insists the warning would not have changed her department security plan. State of Ohio

What are the key factors in executing the digital marketing for tourism and hospitality
"For the last two episodes we have had a very vivid discussion about though wise. And what and today. of course it's going to be a little fun. Talk about the how part. I am with my guest on his head of eat. Tourism research at the university of eastern finland. So welcome you come again. High gripe to be here. This is the last episode. And i'm i'm really excited to get the opportunity to discuss these things about digital marketing with you again. It's it's been great so far. I'm really looking forward all of this episode. Well it's been a great learning experience for me. Also we are sort of. All of us are students because things are changing. If it's minute by minute but so quickly that we have to be able to be nimble and reactive on. What's happening around us. And i think that's where this how part of our feet series comes into the question so let's stocked with them. The point maybe the digital marketing tourism start from motto. Sora help us understand what are the first steps to consider. And and i think this episode bills quite nicely on top of the previous two episodes so we gone through how how the company mission the strategy actually should drive digital marketing. So all the decisions that you do in digital marketing should be. You should be able to connect them with your strategy and your mission and what you're doing bought it to say that it's also possible to do great business without that much thinking abou- strategies and missions. And if you are just able to provide a great customer experience and you are really good at sales and marketing you have all the possibilities to do fantastic basis and and being being able to be a successful With being really good at understanding your business model. But i think everything starts with the customer. So if you don't understand your customer and if you don't have this custom perspective on your own business Then it's it's getting really difficult to be to be successful. Doodoo business that that succeeds and think many times that that is a major issue with with businesses that they are so focused on what they have and how they can sail that while they have instead of looking at customers and understanding the customers one than what the customers need in. How else can be resold or hail wave. What will the company has a not just what we have at this moment but also thinking outside the box and looking at different ways to better serve the needs of of of a customer not alone and not relying just on what we have but also looking for new partnerships and new kind of marketing channels and and all different kinds of options. If you have this customer perspective on your business in are able to put yourself in in customers shoes. I think that's. That's the first. I've where wherever everything about marketing should should be built upon when when we are starting to think the channels and the messages and everything being able to put yourself in in the customer's shoes is fantastic skill to have and also is it so the two should be very specific about to your audiences and who you are. Who are you. Why are you servicing. I have noticed that people tend to get limit wide. They want to go all over the place rather than kind of laser focused on this. And then as you mentioned that the solving the problem i always is only interested in that. Solve the problem that they have not about your product right now so people are typically not interested about companies. People are interested in themselves and watson there for mia and businesses have to figure this out. That's how they tolkien communicate with customers. In last episode we talked about focusing on the benefits that the customer receives instead of the attributes of all we are a whole that will be our restaurant or or who we are as as a destination
Cyber conflict between Ukraine and Russia

But it's an odd duck while often thought of as an advanced persistent threat that is a government. Run operation in some respects. It doesn't really act like a government agency or even a straight up contractor like iran's mob group for one thing gamero don doesn't restrict it's targeting the way government operation normally would nor is it entirely indiscriminate in the way the lower end criminal gangs tend to be for all that gamero. Don is both noisy and aggressive. Research by cisco's talos group suggests that gamero don is also a mercenary player in the criminal. Criminal market talos wrote in. Its recent report on maradonna quote. We should consider the possibility of this. Not being an ap t at all rather being a group that provides services for other ap teas while doing its own attacks on other regions and quote so Kind of contractor perhaps a criminal organization that hires its services out to intelligence services but that also does business with other criminals while its principal state sponsor by general agreement russia turns a blind eye so gamero don is one of the most active and undeterred actors in the threat landscape it does the work of an ap t but it uses a cybercriminals style. It's worth noting that the operation the ns dc describes seems to be a software supply chain compromise as an s. d. c. tweeted. The attack belongs to the so-called supply chain attacks methods in means of carrying out this cyberattack allow to connect it with one of russia's hackers spy groups this is therefore a different matter entirely from the distributed denial of service attacks ukraine complained of at the beginning of the week the de dos attack targeted.

Fallout of Texas winter blast
"Good evening. Thank you for joining us. The governor of sexist apologizing and promising answers after a deadly winter storm the deep freeze. Just the start of an ongoing nightmare for residents now. Struggling with shattered pipes in skyrocketing energy. Bill here's abc's tripled. I can't imagine what it's like for you to see it like this is terrible. I've never thinking house. This brianna bolden tells me she could smell the soap rotting wood from outside the front door of her grandmother's house before walking into this is pictures and the memories. They captured all underwater. And this is actually my big lama right here. This is all and that's the past those wife for half a century. Her grandparents filled this home with children and grandchildren home cooked meals. Tiny reminders of a family growing together is a lot of memories at this house. But now this house like so many in texas has been gutted. Helplessly flooded by first hypes last week's historic winter storm on your couch look. The damage is just a fraction of the devastation. in texas. that killed thirty. Two people will take months or years and billions of dollars to clean up. So how did it go so wrong so quickly. Texas has more than enough generating capacity to handle itself. It was just the state of affairs of that equipment and the state of affairs of the management of that equipment. The causes from texas is the only state in the continental us with an independent grid meaning. It does not connect to any other states power source. When that merciless winter weather hid in one of the warmest regions of the country. People crank up their heaters and the energy demand surged when that system shut down. There was nowhere to turn for power. There is no place for the texas grid to go there. Couple small lines extension cords to the east in the west. But that's not enough really to to pick up. A forty percent drop in texas generation and the result was more than three million texas residents in the dark and cold at one point leading many to take drastic measures for running dangerously low on one. So now what we've been doing. All day is actually coming outside getting snow putting it are pods and heaving on our propane grill. Then hypes began to freeze and burst shutting down water treatment plants across the state inning. Almost fifteen million texans would have to toil their water of four. It was safe to drink daily block water. We don't even have the electric reliability council of texas or bur. Kat had long been warned. Its infrastructure was vulnerable to freezing temperatures the state legislature held hearings on this exact issue in twenty eleven. The last time the state experienced major freeze there were numerous hearings hundreds of pages of recommendations but they were all made voluntarily. Nobody actually change the incentives so that the generators would have a financial reason food to weather. Is this week. Several urquhot born members resigned in the wake of this disaster today in virtual urquhot board of directors meeting. The chairwoman acknowledged the pain and suffering of texans her resignation effective after the meeting ended. All of our hearts go out to all of you with head to go without electricity. Heat water not attending and food during frigid temperatures and continue to face the tragic consequences in some cases. The loss of a loved one state leaders have promised an investigation into urquhot handling of the crisis and members of both parties and the governor of rowing to make sure texans are on the hook for those astronomical electric bills at a time when essential services were needed. The most the system broke. You deserve answers. You will get those answers but people brianna bolden are in need of far more immediate solutions. She's facing mounting hardships. Having recently lost her father and grandfather. It sounds like your grandmother doesn't have home insurance right now. She don't she couldn't afford it anymore. Every generation been through this. Is papa really worked hard for this. I'm sorry statewide. There is so much damage from burst. Pipes plumbers can't keep up see the water. We have another one right here. Everardo omega of a plumbing. In houston says he's crews have been working around the clock just as bad. I mean there's necas mad and they're receiving more calls than they can answer this heartbreaking the tell somebody. uk make we broke down here. Twenty five hours plummer andrew mitchell in his family driving all the way from new jersey with a car full of equipment in arts in short supply here for just going to see what we can do to help out texas residents and also converging in texas to help out the cajun navy civilian volunteers known for using their big trucks. Kamal boats for rescues during major storms like hurricane harvey in twenty seventeen. We talked with a lot of people around here who've been they were impacted by hurricane harvey. I dealing with this. A lot of people think that this is worse than a hurricane's coming in we have more. We know what's going to happen with this disaster. We did not know what was coming. Community was not prepared. No one knew what was coming riley at this is marin mckim. She spent the last decade doing aid work in africa. When disaster struck home she was one of the first on the front lines. The cajun navy has gotten quite good quickly setting up distribution sites like this one but with so many people impacted. What's perhaps most useful is their platform and their connections. Cajun navy crowd sources disasters and cajun navias known so once we find the need we start using the social media platform and we put the word out there and people want to help on this day. They're delivering to katy texas home to just over twenty thousand with some areas still under a boil. Water notice
What Would Happen If Chabot Dam in the East Bay Hills Broke Open?
"What would happen if chicago damn cracked open an empty the lake behind it onto neighborhoods in san leandro and east oakland. It's an alarming thought. We asked cake. Ud's dan bricky. Who's reported on safety issues at california's oroville dam to find the answer. Holly and vickers kings question is a really good one because it reminds us that all dams pose risks of some kind given the nature of the job they perform holding back huge volumes of water they can turn from placid lake into deadly torrent. If unleashed all at once. They deserve very close attention. When that attention lapses catastrophes can do happen in late may eighteen eighty nine flood. Water overflowed badly maintained private dam in western pennsylvania. Triggering its collapse. A wall of water race down the valley below a century later. Historian david mccullough said. The johnstown flood was so vividly alive in the local consciousness. I grew up in western pennsylvania. I'd heard about the johnstown flood my whole life as children. We used to shout run for the hills. The damas busted little knowing what real terror is in those words. The flood wiped entire towns off the map and killed twenty. Two hundred people in california owns its own special chapter in the history of dam disasters with a tragedy that unfolded more than ninety years ago in a remote canyon fifty miles north of downtown los angeles from the day. The saint francis dam opened in one thousand nine hundred twenty six. It leaked the folks in the farm. Towns downstream used to joke. They'd see you later if the damn don't break on march twelfth nine hundred twenty eight. The saint francis damn disintegrated just hours after it was pronounced sound by los angeles water. Chief william mulholland who had designed and built the two year old structure when the massive concrete dam broke apart water raised more than fifty miles to the pacific ocean killing about four hundred fifty people along the way but those events one hundred thirty years ago in johnstown ninety some years ago in los angeles county sound like ancient history much more recently california. Got a lesson in how dangerous and costly failure of even part of a major dam can be failure ambiance spillway structure results in an uncontrolled. Lisa flood waters from link oroville and eating evacuation from the low twenty. Seventeen collapse the spillway at oroville dam in the northern sierra foothills one hundred thirty miles northeast of san francisco touched off a series of events that lead local officials to order one hundred eighty eight thousand people to flee their homes. This is not a drill. Repeat this is not a drill. Spill ways are crucial to preventing overtopping. That's what happens. When a reservoir rises over the top of the dam and simply spills over a spillway is like an emergency valve. Damn managers can open to safely release water from a reservoir bills over the top but back in february twenty seventeen oroville dam spillway began to disintegrate just as a series of winter storms dumped huge amounts of rain across northern california without a fully functioning. Spillway lake oroville rose rapidly water poured over a hillside that was supposed to serve as an emergency spillway. That emergency spillway began to fail to leading to the mass evacuation. In the aftermath investigators found the emergency spillway was ill conceived and the main spillway was badly designed poorly built and inadequately maintained. So how is should bowe damn different from all those bad dams and what does east bay mud have to say about. Chaba cracking open and unleashing catastrophe on the east bay. Simple answer to that question is that the dam would never crack open. That's jimmy yolly east bay mud director of engineering and chief damn safety officer he oversees the district twenty six times including chabad. Damn the reality is that the dams are designed such that. They don't just crack open. You will see signs of a failure if one is to occur and The dan's designs with monitoring equipment to make sure that you can see that happening if it was a east bay mud confidence that a dam built within a quarter mile of a dangerous fault will stand up to violent shaking. Let's take a look at how the dam was first built. Nearly one hundred fifty years ago and how it's been maintained since

I work a lot with the industry and within comp tia in to ensure that our exams are meeting the needs of the industry security plus as one of our largest certifications of all comp. Tia in fact. It's our number one certification and so one of the reasons why people are coming to security plus is because of the skills that it offers and the fact that employers are hiring people who have security plus social security plus will help you get a job in it and cybersecurity so when we look at the certification we have to remember that security plus as an entry level certification exam it was released in two thousand two and it's updated every three years it assesses the baseline or core technical skills required to secure networks software hardware devices essentially it teaches you the basics to securing anything that's attached to a network or the internet. It's a broad range of cybersecurity skills as you can imagine. A any skills are used for high performance on the job so people are coming to take security plus because it proves that they can do the job and employers will know that they could get the job done so the it certification in general is very valuable also security plus appears nearly ten percent of all job ads in the united states and right now sixteen percent of the entire workforce has security plus and we have millions of people who have taken our commttiee exams around the globe. In the last three years. There have been a lot of changes in cybersecurity. Probably all aware of the industry continues to grow their continued to be more jobs available. There continued to be not enough people to fill those jobs and in fact in some cases employers are looking to icy certifications employers are looking to it certifications in lieu of a college degree. Four jobs. That are hard to hire for. They would rather hire someone with the bachelor degree and assert if they could but in this day and age or enough phenomenal time of human history.
Interview With Mark Arnold
"Walk in the show. Thank you absolutely glad to be here all right. So that was a tongue twister of a title the vp of digital customer experience at point next service which is a hewlett packard. Enterprise line of business. Tell the audience. What exactly is point next service. Absolutely so hewlett packard. Enterprise offers a variety of products and as a offerings into the marketplace. Endpoint next is actually support inservice arm of the company so everything we do is focusing geared towards enabling customers to run their it infrastructure from a support and service perspective and so with that said diving a little detail like give us a use case of win. A business would call on your lean on you to implement or develop. Were handle something for them. Absolutely so for us. We view our customers. Everything from small medium business all the way up to fortune ten companies and as these companies are making their it infrastructure decisions and then implementations as well as even the management and operating of those environments point next is able to step in and support the customers through that journey and then as a customer is if they're managing an environment themselves. We provide that level. One two three support for them should they run into any problems in their environment as well and then when it comes to the digital customer experience side of that so customer experience is used quite often in the tech industry where it's actually in the every industry right people always talk about. What is the customer experience. What's the digital customer experience. We've had clients that sell direct to consumer shoes talk about how they wanna make sure. Their website integrates nicely there skews when a customer purchases or when gets on the line for service help they all consider that part of the customer experience. Is there a specific domain in your world where you're the vp of customer experience. Where you're focused on inside of this digital services offering at a great question so as we've approached this it's really been from customer view and we've looked at how we can transform the way our customers engage with us as the business traditionally support business has been managed in one wanted two ways. It's either a face to face situation. Where a customer has a representative where there is actual face to face interaction. there's an onsite presence or there's an element that's a remote delivery side. What's your typical type call center or technical solution center. Where if a customer has a problem they call in and get that support the landscapes changing and our customers really just want that digital capability to self solve to self serve and own their own future. So what we're doing on the digital experience side is looking at our portal environment our social forums even looking into mobile applications where we can create a true environment. Our customers can operate. Add an end to end platform. That's integrated that has elements of a layered through it and at the same time.

The More You Grow, The More You Need To Say No
"I want to start by just stating a fact. It's so much easier to say yes to something than to say. No saying yes has no friction right if somebody says. Hey i would love to have you on my podcast. You saying this requires zero effort like sure. Yeah no problem. A big part of their reasons. Because you're not actually saying yes to doing something immediately right now. You're saying yes to something that's going to happen in the future and the future is foggy for most of us. We don't really fully internalize that commitment or like that's my future selves problem right. That's future almost problem. My problem right now on the other hand saying no to anything is hard. Even if it's just a friend asking you hey. Do you want to grab some lunch. And you just can't make it because you have obligations having to say no is just hark. You don't disappoint people that's natural. Let's just you being a good person but having said that saying no doesn't make you a bad person say no actually protects you so that you can continue to do the good things in your life you can be value to only your customers and your employees but also to your friends and family and saying no is not really something were taught even had to deliver that no so in today's lesson i wanna explore this concept and walk you through this journey when to start saying no had to do it in which opportunities you should say yes to. Here's the reality as you start growing your business as you become a more salish entrepreneur. The more valuable. Your time is when you're first getting started. I'm just speaking about myself. When i first got started and i was just trying to kick up dust as trying to make a name for myself. I was trying to build a business that matters has customers that has revenue the sustain myself. I was willing to do pretty much anything to bring in customers. Those legal and ethical of course and therefore my time really didn't have much value. Because all i had is time i didn't have money ended customs but a had time but that equation changes as you get more customers as you get more revenue and now your biggest asset is time you only have a limited amount of it so anytime you say yes to something you are going to say no to something else because that is going to take you some time on your calendar. Right and once that time is taken. You can't do anything else. And there's only a certain number of hours and they right. There's only twenty four hours a day. You can't do more than that you know and the thing about this is that it's gradual in the beginning you have nothing but time than your time becomes a little bit more limited and then as you grows entrepreneur time is incredibly limited and a lot has to do with the fact that you just have more on your plate. You have more opportunities presented to you because of the successes you've having going look at this issue a look at the extremes if you wanna have lunch with a local entrepreneur that you met in your co working space that might be in the star of their entrepreneurial journey. Maybe they've been doing this for years but getting a lunch with that entrepreneur that you've met your coworkers is not impossibly can schedule. You can make it happen. I it's like trying to have lunch with mark. Cuban right you know mark from shark tank and you know the owner of the dallas. Mavericks billionaire entrepreneur. This guy's got incredible amounts of opportunity. His schedule is jam-packed his time is incredibly limited. So it's not impossible for them but the chances of you having lunch are a whole lot thinner than you having with somebody. Who's not as busy right. Not as senior in their entrepreneurial journey and that's because he has a lot on his plate paternity any says no a lot. He had to train himself to do that because when he says no allows them to say yes to other things things that he really really wants to do or things that will have a greater impact on his life and his business now. A lot of people have a hard time saying no because they don't wanna feel bad they don't wanna feel like they're being a jerk or helping other people how or you know just respecting the journey and understanding how i was once there. I want to help somebody out. I'm one of those people but you can always turn an opportunity in your favor to make sure it works for you so i sometimes get emails essay. Hail mar would love to jump on a call and discuss this with you. I have a question. I have something i want to work out one. Maybe an opportunity can collaborate. And i totally respect that. And that's really kind of than three job to me but a call is very time consuming for me anything. That's synchronous where. I have to be at the same time. Same place is very very hard to do. Because i have a schedule of have Obligations to my team to my customers. I have to do so i always counter and say thank you so much. I'd love to do this over email.
Did Bill Gates Seriously Short TSLA Stock
"Robbed our here and today we're going to be talking about bill gates response to on musk's claims the oregon podcast a couple of weeks. Back that get heard. That bill gates had been shorting stock. We've also got some news on the broader electric vehicle automotive market an interesting response from yvonne on an article from the washington post. And of course. We've gotta talk about tesla stock. It's about wild couple of days. We had the interview yesterday with alex rotter so we didn't get a chance to talk about it. But of course yesterday. Tuesday february twenty. Third tesla dropped to a low of six hundred nineteen dollars per share. That was down more than thirteen percent from the prior. Close then of course. We saw us swift recovery in the market. And from tesla tesla finishing down just two percent yesterday on the biggest volume day that we've seen in over a month and a half with sixty six million shares trading hands yesterday. So i talked about on monday and we briefly talked about yesterday in the interview as well. A lot of this is tied to expectation on interest rates. So yesterday fed chairman. Jerome powell made comments to congress. Indicating the current monetary policy is expected to continue for some time as economic uncertainty remains so not to get too deep into that. We've talked about that. Of course in the past but as far as tussles yesterday certainly was not isolated to tesla. Those sort of concerns were broadly extended to high growth. Stocks tussle obviously falls in that category. And i think the volatility there serves as a nice quarterly reminder that you have to be very very careful with stop losses on a volatile stock like tussle as for today tesla continue to rebound finishing up six point two percent to seven hundred and forty dollars two cents. That compared to the nasdaq up one percent. All right so i up today. I want to continue a conversation that we began a couple of weeks back after yvonne. Musk went on joe. Rogan's podcast for the third time and said that he had heard from people he believes would know that bill gates had shorted tesla. Yvonne brought that up in response to a question from joe rogan on the tesla semi citing that bill gates in a blog. Post a few months back had said that eighteen wheel electric semi is probably would never work so allen's claim here understand. We drawing a lot of attention not the first time something like this has happened between musk and gates last year. He did by his first electric vehicle. The porsche ticon. Which at the time. Maybe it wasn't so clear why he didn't by ordering vehicle up until that point. Well now we might have a better answer for that. But he talked about the decision in an interview with marquez brownlee and it seemed to be a relatively tepid endorsement of electric vehicles gatesville right up ranging anxiety as a problem and elon. Musk responded to that interview. Not necessarily gives purchase of tycoon but those comments in general by saying that quote my conversations with gates have been underwhelming to be honest and so that catches us up to today and then we have launched claiming that he heard gates which tesla now in the last week. We've had both cnbc and bloomberg asked gates directly about that claim. I think gates tone is important these responses so i will play the actual clip. The i wanna hear from andrew. Ross sorkin cnbc asking gates so so you're not sure tesla's stock were clear. Yeah i'm not. I don't talk about my investment. But i think he should be very proud of what he's done. Okay so technically there. He did say yeah. I'm not but it sounded like he was more starting a sentence of saying yeah. I'm not going to talk about my investments not yet. I'm not sure tesla because he interrupts himself and says i don't want to talk about my investments so to me. That's a no comment. Rather than a denial. What's interesting here is his reason saying he doesn't wanna talk about his investments but in the exact same interview. He talks about his investments multiple times. He says quote when i invested in impossible foods or beyond me or quantum scape. I was doing that just to help their own climate. Now it looks like those three will be very successful companies. And so i'll have more money to put into the tough areas a climate like cement and steel and quote. Okay so he says he doesn't want to talk about his investments but then he in response to another question talks about his investments in impossible foods beyond me quantum scape and then how does investments are doing and that i'll have more money to then go on an invest in other stuff. I mean how much more could you talk about your investments. And he uses the first person tense. You're saying i invested. He's asked about bitcoin and he says quote. I don't own bitcoin. I'm not short bitcoin. So i've taken a neutral view and quote so for bitcoin. Perfectly fine to say i'm not short bitcoin. Same question for tesla. oh. I don't want to talk about my investments that we just spent a bunch of time talking about. If you're not going to answer the question at least come up with a better non answer. That doesn't immediately contradict yourself. He has to have known that he'll be asked about that and yet seems completely content guard answer so that was last week if there was any doubt left after that because he did start off. By saying yeah. I'm not before interrupting himself as we said. Here's gates on bloomberg yesterday so we had five days to think about this answering the same question from emily. Chang yuan has in the past claimed you shorted tesla and i wonder if there's any truth to that Well you know i think. Test us on amazed seen company I wish you know own. Been more on the long side. But i it's it's great And you know i have. Lots of relatives won't tassels Helped by for them. So you know nothing. But positive thoughts about tesla role. Okay so if the answer to the cnbc question was a bit of a flood. There was a clear opportunity to just say. Hey i'm not sure. Tesla was jor tesla and again gates passes and he sure doesn't look comfortable to me answering the question. Belief is that it looks pretty clear. That bill gates was short. Tesla who knows if he's still is it'd be surprised but come on. How are you going to be all about climate change and then short the one company that's doing more than any other company on earth to combat it. If you don't think it's a good investment you think it's overvalued you can just not invest in it. No one has any problem with that but too short it push the stock price down. Make it more difficult for tesla to raise capital. That's something else entirely.
Why Square Stock Dropped Today
"Came in solidly higher-than-expected shares of square though are down seven percent this morning. Because growth is slowing. There's always a lot to get to with square so when you look at all the numbers. Tell me what stood out to you. Yes for me. I really focused. When i swear on really their burgeoning business which you know is the cash shop. It's funny you mentioned the war on cash and they have this kind of conveniently named cash app so it was really some of the numbers that the shop drew in the quarter and for that matter the fiscal year one of them is one hundred sixty two percent. Increase your ear. Gross profit of the cash up In a lot of that is being fueled by new users and specifically cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. So i think one number is not in throughout the entire twenty twenty fiscal year over three million people transacted bitcoin in some regard which was a two hundred fifty percent increase in volume compared to fiscal year. Nineteen and then they also even gave some gave some information on january twenty twenty one st year with over one million new buyers of bitcoin so really just interesting kind of figures throughout the entire report. Kind of the bitcoin. Being such an important part of that cash app is what really stood out to me. Yeah and that was certainly part of the headline squares square announcing it had purchased one hundred seventy million dollars worth of bitcoin during the quarter so cash app is squares version of ven. Mo- it's interesting to see the reaction from the start because on the one hand. This is a stock. Even factoring in the drop today. The stock is up almost two hundred percent in the past year so i understand particularly traders on wall street with a shorter term mentality saying alright. It's been a good year. Let's let's take a little money off the table. That sort of thing on the other hand. I don't know the overall market cap of square is just over one hundred billion dollars. It seems like a business with a lot of room to run. And i was listening to some of the comments the. Cfo made around what they are. Seeing it square in terms of how sticky the cash app is in terms of the other parts of squares business. How it's this thing that sort of bringing people in and once they're in the square ecosystem. They they start trying other parts of the business. So i don't know like would you look i get the. Pe ratio is somewhere north of five hundred. But when you when you look at everything that square has going on do you look at today as a buying opportunity for people who maybe had square on their watchlist and thought well okay. It's it's seven percent cheaper than it was yesterday. Yeah actually i was looking at. You know over the last couple of weeks how it's performed and through last week year to date. I think it was up. Something like twenty seven percent and then you have over the last couple of days. You know ten percent or so pullback and these are always the days as as a long term investor that i look for you know have a business. That's in my opinion burgeoning. Having fiscal year revenue grow over one hundred percent granted excluding bitcoin. That's only about fifteen or twenty percent but as long term investor. I do think this is an opportunity. I'm not personally a shareholder of square. But it's a fascinating business to me and we've seen so much traction and really their largest growing business in terms of bitcoin transaction cryptocurrency and things like that which really doesn't seem to be dying the craze three or four years ago now. And you know it's all of a sudden habit a two year hiatus and it's got right back in the thick of things you know which squares really benefiting from. So you know. I think if you're a long term investor willing to hold for a couple of years and not too worried about a lot of volatility which has realizing probably will continue to experience over the coming months over coming quarters over the coming years I think this is an opportunity to dip your feet in or maybe increase your position a little bit lows. Fourth quarter report
"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason
The Power of the Pivot And Knowing where your transferable skills are needed
"You know. People have had a very very very difficult time by the tens of millions with periods of unemployment that had been for some people. fortunately short for others brutally. Long six months or longer in this. I'd i'd i'd corona virus circumstance and the reality is the power the pivot when mean when i talk about. That is something. I talked about back in. Two thousand eight through twelve with the pivot was a lot harder than because we were in a cyclical economic downturn. Do the banking scandals and the result of that era was that it felt like for a significant period of time. There was nowhere really easy to turn today. Though is very very very different. Where even within industries there are people have been thriving. Well have struggled either as business owners or as workers and so if you think about how concentrated. The hardship has been during this pandemic related recession. Where certain things have been just job. Categories brutalized and others. People are doing great but even within the categories where things have been so tough thing about restaurants. How many restaurants have failed. How many restaurant tours. Who worked so hard to build up their dreams and they got crushed by corona virus and then at the same time i saw a story in the new york times how pizza anybody who sold pizza had the best business year in their history over the last year. Pizza tends to be unless you go to some fancy dancy pizza place. Pizza tends to be cheap. It's a lot of people and it was perfect and made to order for delivery. I read a story about a fancy french restaurant. I don't remember where. I read this both fancy french restaurant where they knew they were going down. They were done and then one of them said you know what all these pizza places are doing so great. Why don't we come up with french. Themed pizza and they found a brick oven pizza oven and they started making these french theme pizzas and they deliver them and they've survived. They're not thriving but they've survived to live another day. That is the power of the. Have i read yet. Another story about how restaurant tours that have survived this year or going out now and getting locations for pennies on the dollar where other restaurants have shuttered and as we have more more shots and people's arms you know eating out. It's going to be something people are going to want to gravitate back to who missed. We're social animals. Most of us. We missed that. We've missed that joy kris. Daddy say joy. Vive how do you say that. I do believe schwab to be thank you. We have missed that. I can't pronounce english no way i'm pronouncing something in a foreign language so there are people that are preparing to have locations at much lower overhead in many cases with abandon very valuable kitchen equipment chairs. Everything they need to re-open theme restaurant bat again is the power. The pivot in jobs. I talked about this recently. How many different job categories people were begging for workers and pay his going up while the job category. You may be an working in a hotel Working in most restaurants working in any kind of tourism thing Dad flat on your back concert business. Anything like that you know. I read recently. Sports teams professional. Sports teams have been laying off huge percents of their staffs because they've had no rear ends and seats. And even though tv accounts for such a big share revenue for so many professional teams fans actually do matter in the money they spend and so people who have skills that they may have gotten in sports management school that skill. The you have can be used in so many other kinds of activities promotional activities sales for so many industries where people are thriving
Interview With Emma Grede
"Emma thank you so much for coming on the show. Welcome to skimmed from the couch. How i thank you so much for having way and mary excited to talk to you about everything that you've done but first let's jump into skimming your resume so my best job was when i was like twelve and i had to pay around and it gave me my best taste of cash. Which was just wonderful pitches stopped working since then. I went through the hosted in my life working in retail. And i had always weighty being about sasha i loved that world i come from place where you know. It was really devoid of any kind of fashion obama. So i found was really gravitating towards you. Know just the beauty and the supermodels and the brands you know. As i was growing up it was all about the saatchi and chanel and families that working in designer stores in and then my first proper job of coming out of college. I studied business at the london college of fashion and went straight into fashion. Show production avow myself in this really all. Its little niche because in london guests there. Was this amazing. You know london fashion week. Where all of these brilliant designers but nobody really had the money to put on this show. So i ended up in this strange donation of sponsorship and kind of creighton bronze collaborations with the great and the good of the british fashion industry. And that's weighty. Where taught my teeth. And i think that when i think about what it is today and where i've found my success it already started in those early days of being a production company and really learning how to bridge the gap between the creative businesses that fashion all and and more commercial bronze. And so. yeah. That was it for me. That's that was the beginning of it when something that people would be surprised to know about you. Oh i mean. I guess he will probably be surprised to know like how much about makeup i am. I guess maybe that's not something that you always associated with. Somebody who's an entrepreneur like my favorite thing to do is cooking and making things nice at the house. I'm an absolute festive fruit. Like the idea that. I get thanksgiving on top of christmas. Now i'm living in america could not be a need better. I'm not get to do that. Twice is at christmas participate so right now. That's all i think about is that. What is my thanksgiving menu table. Go look greg bat. That is my job. Elevate okay so. I love opening up our questions with entrepreneurs like yourself by talking about your childhood because our childhoods shape all of us and informs ultimately who we are in in how we make decisions. I want you to paint a picture for us about how you grew up in how you think that's shaped you. Yeah it's a great question on a great more. I failed so much of may an how i behave. How i treat people have chosen to comes from my childhood and you know i had a reedy great childhood. I grew up for e kind of a poll basically in east london very deprived area. And i say it so blatantly as that is because you know. It wasn't only devoid of glamour. It was completely devoid of opportunities. Everybody in that community had lived there their entire lives and you seemingly could get out of it. It was a huge jack of opportunity. A huge lacquers education and i saw for myself in my mother who really kind of broke through an managed to create something else for. She was a single mother with four children and my mom found herself. You know working in the stock exchange becoming a trader having a job for twenty plus years at morgan stanley. And that for me was you know it was just like a gateway sunday could see that you know you could create with with a lot of hard work and today and if you really did that you get rid of that to pay off then you could really really really change your outlook very very early on i. I really believe that the harder. I what the more likely would be to get myself out of. Why soares a pretty kind of dire situation but of course when you live and you grow up like that doing something you know. I could understand it if you're a doctor lawyer or going into banking fashion just didn't seem like a way out to me and so there are times in my life where i definitely thought. Oh am i on the wrong path which is ultimately why. I went and studied business at the london college fashion. Because i believe that. If i could set that foundation in business and have this specialism fashion that at least it would ground me that if all that fun bit didn't work out. I'd still have the basics of business. And i could go and run construction company. Also something

Night of dr hulda jason other day or until about two thousand nine when i decided to move to And coming from a background of public policy. I decided that cambra would be the best location from korea expected. Not everyone's face choice but was mon. And when i go out sort of got into the business of working for industry associations lobbying for industry and my first job in the automotive sector was with the australian automobile association which represents the staten territory modern club so cicely moderates and sort of vets event mice the my initial knowledge and also able to then use that to bosnia for a federal minister said laws on numerous issues and opting for few years. I was lucky enough to be employed by the wpa and three and a half years later on. I'm still here and united loving really enjoying working for a really interesting industry and wanna be anywhere else. Key question for me is what is the double idea. Seem to what are they a organizations so double. Ada what's the fda and come from. That's a great question. You know the people here in canberra and my predecessors ever blackwill used to talk about the alphabet soup of zone automotive associations got the mt aa the aa.

Number of senior figures within the industry decided that the needed no-go session which exclusively represented the needs of dealers at national level. And that's all the. I was think it's fair to say it's come a long way in the

They keep changing the smells that keep changing the hours. How often do you see that as a lot which which gives them a lot of added work and stress but then also when you deviates if you can't keep the system then you're not going to be able to keep your employees long because they kind of need to know when they're they're working?

Pay Pal SPACEX and Tesla Elon. Musk is doing very well for those of you. Who are new to the planet Earth Elon? Musk is absolutely a legendary. Innovator and entrepreneur who currently has a net worth today is is of thirty thirty two billion dollars one thinks because he just got himself a big big bonus so right now. According to Bloomberg net worth is estimated at thirty two billion dollars. Wow so he's he's doing well but this is what Elon. Musk CASTA say about hiring people he says one lesson I learned it. Pay Pal is is to fire people faster. That sounds awful but I think somebody's not working out. It's best to part ways sooner rather than later. It's a mistake to try too hard to make something work. That really couldn't work again. One lesson I learned it pay pal is to fire people faster. That sounds awful but I think if something is not working working out it's best to part ways sooner rather than later i. It's a mistake to try too hard to make something work. That really couldn't work. Yeah we talked about that on the podcast recorded You know before about the difference between ABC players. In one. Important thing that I wanted to say about that was Elon. Musk says if you can't change him get him out of there but the only people that you really really can change or the players because they want to change so they're going to be looking for that but if you try to mold NBA player. Here's going to waste your time and if you go online and you WANNA have a glassy blast Elon Musk. This is Orelon Musk's expense. I encourage you to read comments of ex employees. Tell all you'll see this a lot. Whenever somebody is not a good fit for a company? Bunny the they they really go up there and they start to kind of bash. And why does someone who's not a good fit go online and bash bash their employer. Whoa what an employee who takes a job and is not a good fit for the job why do they bash their employer? Why do they do that if it's not going to? They want to save face and they WANNA THEY WANNA shift shift that blame to somebody. They don't WANNA own up to it. Like I've worked at plenty of jobs like when I was a host at a certain here in Tulsa. I could do the job but it clearly wasn't meant for me and so at one point like hey. This isn't really working out. You doesn't seem if you'RE GONNA be you're right and they let me go and I was cool with that. You didn't see me hop on Google. This place sucks. I still went back there for multiple years until they closed but yeah most people don't want to accept that they were bad for some they don't want to admit defeat they want to say. Oh woe is me get the company in trouble and trying trying to stick it to him. One last time L. on most talked about he said.

They use third party arbiters really whoever is nearby to settle disputes before things can rise to the level of conflict. If that doesn't work they go to the Goba the elected head of the village who listens to both sides of the case and makes a decision. If the Goba can't resolve a conflict, the matter is passed to the Oprah a meeting of the village men while they may vote on an issue, they rarely do as they're usually able to reach a consensus.

"Ancient sounds unique crafts and a particular language live side by side with modern technology, the Sami people live in four countries. Norway Sweden Finland and Russia there estimated at eighty thousand strong half of whom live in Norway. The Sami language belongs to the urologist linguistic family, which also includes Finnish Estonian and Hungarian. Even though the Sami live in Norway, their language isn't related to Norwegian or to other Indo European languages. And it's not so much one language as nine of which three dialects are still in use the language is an official language in Norway. But is not accorded the same prominence as Norwegian. Traditionally the Norwegian Sami made their living hurting reindeer and the majority of the region of northern Norway is still used for raising reindeer, the semi also supported themselves with fishing livestock farming and hunting today large population of the Sami people live outside the traditional Sami area and have moved into the towns of northern Norway or to the Oslo area. Even more still live in traditional Sami settlement areas, but earn their living in modern industries. The Sami culture had many unique forms of expression, including your week one of the oldest song traditions in Europe, which is still alive and well today. You eek is dedicated to a person animal or place and the harmonies reproduce the qualities of the subject. Traditionally joy have no lyrics or very few lyrics. They usually consist of chanting, not unlike that found in native American indigenous cultures and can also include mimicry of animal sounds most people acquire their own melody like having a personal theme song because the melody is so closely associated with that person semi speakers refer to making a York based on a person's appearance or personality, as you king someone it's bad form to perform your own yoink it seen as a kind of boasting most joy melodies about people, but animals and places can also have your IX, which are passed down from generation to generation these older York's tend to be about animals that are important in Sammy life such.

A few times owns to the east in Siberia reindeer are also hurted by the minute people through a yearly migration of over a thousand kilometers or over six hundred miles. They moved gigantic herds of reindeer from summer pastures in the north to winter pastures, just south of the Arctic circle an environment or temperatures plummet to negative fifty degrees celsius, and we're crossing the world's fifth largest river after it's frozen over is just part of a day's work. Withstanding? These conditions isn't too surprising from people who've withstood early Russian colonization Stalin's regime of terror and modern day Rangers of repay ships oil and gas development, there are traces of indigenous reindeer economies all the cross the almo peninsula from which they hail stretching back a thousand years, but its recent history that shapes the current Senate way of life in one thousand nine hundred sixty one the Soviets collectivized reindeer herds and created several large state run farms. This is how nomadic hurting became part of the Soviet economy. And how the tundra effectively became an open air meat factory where the nomads were workers of the Soviet agricultural system with fixed contracts and salaries after the Soviet Union collapsed, the private reindeer economy began to thrive and state farms dwindled today eighty percent of the reindeer are. Privately owned by their herders with the remaining twenty percent owned by the current state farms most of which belong to the local government. The reindeer are raised for meat and for their Antlers which are exported to China as a male potency drug reindeer maintain a cultural significance for the nets. For example, a bride price or dowry may still be paid in reindeer? It's believed the original nenet people and the reindeer entered a kind of social contract where the reindeer offered themselves to the humans for sustenance and transport and the humans agreed to accompany them on their seasonal migration to protect them from predators. The net still rely on traditional clothing. And then at man wears a Melissa a coat with a hood and gloves made from four reindeer skins with the for worn on the inside and the leather on the outside in extremely cold conditions. The men wear another layer of for called a gust, unlike the Melissa the gusts has leather on the inside and for on the outside and equipped with these layers a man can stay outside overnight and sleep with the heard in temperatures as low as fifty degrees celsius the women wear. A goose got a double layer of about eight reindeer skins, which is buttoned up the front. Both men and women where hip high reindeer skin boots that consist of an inner and outer boot worn together and tied to a belt.

Not nearly as cold as Siberia is Poland where the cashew billions are a true ethnic minority distinct from the polish in both language and culture. The cashew beans are believed to have settled in the area fifteen hundred years ago, many Choubey and even believe themselves to be the last surviving tribe of the ancient Balts estimates. As to just how many cashew beans and people have cashew Byan descent live in Poland can vary widely in Poland's twenty eleven census a quarter million people declared themselves to be cashew Bian, but only sixteen thousand declared cashew Bian as their sole nationality. Similarly, while one hundred and eight thousand people said they spoke Choubey in at home only thirteen thousand declared Choubey and to be their native language, cashew and enjoys legal protection in Poland. As a minority language it's taught in polish schools and can be found on some street signs.

And this is your brain on facts. Accustomed as we are to the global village and social networks full of people broadcasting every moment of their lives. There are still many people in our wide wonderful world that you might not know about. These may be undiscovered tribes or people who live among the larger nation, but are genetically or culturally distinct, let's begin in the southern Pacific Ocean east of Papua New Guinea where lie the Solomon Islands. Much of the Solomon Islands is undeveloped without roads electricity or telephones. It's one of the most linguistically diverse nations in the world with dozens of languages spoken. The most commonly used language being a pigeon of English and Melanesian languages. There. Had been a short-lived Spanish settlement on the islands, but not much else in the way of outside contact until Britain claimed the Solomon Islands as a protectorate in eighteen ninety three what existed before that were numerous Thomas clan based communities often headed by a male leader with assistance community and family were and are important to the Solomon islanders. The people there have dark skin and one in ten has platinum blonde hair and blue eyes, genetically speaking blond hair is rare occurring with most substantial frequency only in northern Europe. Many assumed that the blonde hair of the Solomon Islands in greater Melanesia. Was the result of what's called, gene flow a trait passed on by the European explorers? Traders and others who visited in the preceding centuries, the islanders themselves give several possible explanations for the blonde hair. They generally chalk it up to sun exposure or a diet rich in fish recently. A genetic study found that the islanders have a homegrown, gene. That gives them their blonde hair, and it's different from that of the blonde haired Europeans its frequency is between five and ten percent across the Solomon Islands, which is about the same. As where I'm from. Said study author Eimear Kennedy PHD who was born in Ireland within a week. We had our initial result. It was such a striking signal pointing to a single gene a result. You could hang your hat on that rarely happens. In science says Kenny it was one of the best experiences of my career. The researchers recruited participants at assessed their hair and skin color using a light refractories meter took blood pressure readings and measured height and weight. They asked the villagers to spit into little tubes to provide saliva for DNA in the span of the month. They collected more than one thousand samples then they selected forty-three blonde and forty two dark-haired Solomon islanders from the opposite extremes of the hair pigment range because the vast majority of human physical characteristics in lies to date, have many genetic and environmental factors. Kenny expected. An inconclusive result initially that would require further study. Instead, she immediately saw a single strong signal on chromosome nine which accounted for fifty percent of the variants in the Solomon islanders hair-color. The team went on to identify gene possible Y R RPI one which encodes. An enzyme previously recognized as influencing pigmentation in mice and humans. Sure, the research revealed that the particular variant responsible for blonde hair and the Solomon Islands is absent in the genomes of Europeans. So the human characteristic of blonde hair arose independently inequitable OC, Anna that is quite unexpected. And fascinating Kenny set. In nearby NEW GUINEA, the y'all tribe is most likely the smallest of the Papuan nations. I say most likely because many other politics are convinced that not all of the native people in NEW GUINEA have yet been discovered the all Lieber were only discovered in nineteen sixty one as it is they make their homes in the highlands, which are the least accessible territories. The only tribe are believed to be cannibals that are considered to be pygmies people who display a widespread even unilateral tendency towards short stature traits like this are not uncommon in isolated communities. Recessive genes can be redoubled Easley in the absence of genetic diversity, even the Amish in North America have a higher than average occurrence of dwarfism called Ellis fan crippled syndrome, y'all e men stand less than one hundred and fifty centimeters or five feet tall on average. Teams like a fine height to me height. Not withstanding the L E R respected meaning feared by their enemies.

They were said to utterly destroy them. They did not only each the bodies. They allegedly ground the bones to dust, which was then thrown into the valley. They did this to prevent the victim from ever returning from the afterlife. People from neighbouring villages for said to be killed not only for revenge, but sometimes just for meet the Ali live in round huts built from cut planks with roofs made from pond on leaves women and men live separately women have their own houses and men live in communal houses men. Wear traditional Retana skirts made up of large rings, almost like a colonial hoops, Kurt the skirt covers the body from the breast to the knees. The front of the skirt is supported by cotija, a penis tube made of the fruit of a bottle plant. Y'all women were a traditional short skirt made of grass that only covers the genitals and their breasts are left bare their skirt consists of four layers the first layer is given to girls when they reach approximately four years of age one layer is added every four years as soon as they reach four layers the girl is considered mature and ready for marriage.

The Basque are one of the oldest if not the oldest peoples in Europe, they've lived in the same place for more than two thousand years some Basque nationalists claim that should be ten thousand years. They say they are descendants of cro-magnon man, and they are the only European peoples to continually occupy the same place their language s gotta bears. No, clear relationship to any other language in the world. And is the oldest living language in Europe.
