"Yeah yeah sort of wing of She started at the thing. Yeah yeah the volunteer. We did it at the food bank for quite a few years where you can go down and you'd like box up meals and stuff like that which in some ways kind of feels like. It's more of a promotional thing because they don't really need your help doing that as much as like. I think they wanted everyone to be out there like saying. Hey the food bank is around. Yeah oh we'll we'll you posted meals and then serving that's cool. Oh that's great. But then i also another organization that cool up. I think was the one who organized. This is probably the baby to baby place. That's Where they give women who swap babies. It's like they give close in diapers to babies. Give them to each other. Need them but it's like sometimes volunteering. Like i think sometimes volunteer qassim intimidating. Because i don't know. I can see i can get weirdly shy certain situations. I don't know but like but then the things that i've done i found that like there's always a task you can do that. Isn't it's within your comfort zone. You don't have to do something that is if you're if just as mainly people out there who are afraid to volunteer because i do feel like there's like an element of like social anxiety. That comes with the idea volunteering. Yes but like also the the social anxiety of being in any situation where you don't know how to do it. Yes is is very big like where you just don't know what's going to happen like if you can't picture yourself doing something like like if i show up to this place. What are they going to have me do. And there's so many just gets to be very paralyzing. Yeah but like for example with the baby to baby charity like there are people you could stephen stand there and fold clothes and sort them or you could like put boxes together. You could label addresses or or something. That's more hands on with other people like so you could do something by yourself kind of or get involved with other people and i. I think that's a good thing to keep in mind with that kind of thing Yeah i think that's a good thing to do with your kids to is just a still a thing But i also think we should get part time jobs. I did i tell you about the guy at the record store who wanted to hire me and who recently okay. So no no not recently When i was in college i would go into this record store lot and ask for very specific things you know and smart people cool record. That would be the cool with all the chicks at cafe. I still don't know the guy behind. The counter was in a band that was very influenced by the wonder stuff. They were like a wonder stuff. Rip off band. In any case so i would go in there. A lot in the owner would see me all the time and at one point he said to me. Hey are you looking for work. Because you're always in here and you know so much about music in. I could use someone like you and i was like. Oh you know what. I'm an acting college and i don't have time and then when i was looking for work they didn't need anyone and then i saw him in a mall like the following year and i went up to him. It was like. Hey dude how's it going. Are you still over there at the record store. And he gave me the weirdest answer. Which was. I'm not over there currently. But i'm doing well i can't say what but don't you worry about me. I was like oh drugs. What is just sparked a memory. That i'm trying to place right now of what i was walking through the mall. This was like a while years. And years ago i was walking through the mall in l. a. and this guy was like shooting something like they're shooting some commercial or i don't know what it was. He came got. I can't remember. It's such a bad story but i don't care. He came up to me and he was like trying to like we had met before i guess and he was like trying to like show me how cool he was because he was doing this thing. I wish i knew who it was. Oh man what a bad story. I've heard that you were at the mall and saw guy. Yeah okay. Hey that happened to me. To really relatable i used to i used to love going to spencer's gifts so we're gonna plymouth meeting mall going to spencer's gifts then. Did you have a game that you wanted. He wanted to get a fan. I think that needle thing where you would put your hand in it and it would.

Spencer still thing. I think it is. There's this mall in burbank. That is like every store is like somebody you've never heard of in your life. They're always call. They're called like times space like they're just they all have like weird. There's even a lips time. You know that mall that space in downtown brag they just re they just has like we shot there. It's got the glass elevator right. The a hotel that we're at wasn't it but right near oh no. That's across across the street. I know which you know. There's there's a mall with a glass elevator that we shot talk show in elevator with andy. Dick jack black. That was fun with people.

You couldn't with forty dollars. You could buy a ten damn you to hell. I don't even believe it. I want you to spend dirty there. What if i'm there already. I don't know. I mean we've we've talked about allowances and i think i i was getting seven dollars a week at one point which i thought was fantastic. Sure a dollar a day not mind seven dollars a week right now so he just gave me free seven dollars absolutely. I'll give you some a week a week if you ring payment house. I'm not doing toward grouse. Take tell you. I tell you what every friday in the afternoon you have to come over to my house and take my garbage cans in and that's it will not for seven.

It's an envelope taped check. Someone can cash left traveler schick. How much would you do it for. How much would i do that. Specific chore for specific chore for. Yeah i have bear might have three garbage cans. The dry actually the least wanted more than travel. It's demeaning nature of the entire thing. But i would do it for a hundred dollars a week. You would do it for one hundred dollars a week. Sure whether this is worth it to me. Yeah we'll trade or an ipad. And i had a week engraved ipad recruiters raved ipad and personalized not engraved to someone in grave to you. I wanted to scott. I wanted to say your name. Oh personalized to you. Sure okay. okay sure dear scott. There's an ipad. it says dear apple So wait so you got seven dollars a week for and how old were you in. What did you have to do for. That was probably a lot of elementary school. And like i think it might have gone up a little bit in middle school not really And then what did i do. I did a lot of the the whole concept of allowance. What is it's basically just to give your kid like a treat that they want every once in a while or like to teach them how to spend money that i would get it and he would always go to candy or whatever. Yeah i. I don't know what i would spend by a beanie baby. Because they were six dollars. That was kind of exciting Dover for candy exactly we're tax goodbye another beanie baby. Why every six weeks. Oh with the dollar because they were dollars. Yeah i i don't think it was based on specific chores. There's only chore chart. But i did a lot of things. I do the laundry in my house growing up. And yeah i liked it. You can't even iron shirt. Why didn't i or anything. But i would fold. Everyone's clothes and put them in their room. And then like you know that was what i do. Lot other than that. I don't know what else. I think that's more than i did already. Yeah i do a lot of gardening. Oh that seems hard. Like pulling weeds. Yeah stuff like. I had to do that. I did Sludge sweeping sweep sweeping to this day but of course shoveling snow in the wintertime shits in the summertime trash cans absolutely What else trying to think we were supposed to. I was not good at like cleaning. Bathrooms like things like that that required like scrubbing like real elbow. Grease i was terrible. I sometimes i do the mirror in the bathroom please. Don't we door's locked. It's just you and me sometimes. A sometimes i'd have some windows or mirrors. I don't like that either really any kind of physics. My room clean and then i i liked cleaning like stuff so i i liked organizing so as i said i would go my brother's room and clean his room. I always liked organizing. I liked cleaning windows because windows felt like it was satisfying like cleaning windows was satisfying. There's a tangible result at the yes yay whereas whereas weeping but yeah cleaning windows is like making making a dirty window clean and looking through. It is very satisfying for some reason.

Though to cool it would be cool. I don't think they need. You could be an apprentice being an apprentice. Yeah i you could get that. I think i think about andy kaufman. Just bussing tables at the height of his fame. When i think about that a man makes you mad. I think. I think it would be interesting to do just like some time. Although i guess. I guess if i were going to do it instead of it being a job for money it'd be better just volunteer at a place of service that you know learned. That is the one thing i thought about instead of going to church on sunday like me up one of the weekend as like a day of service. Great i mean every time. I have volunteered in my adult life. I feel like it's so happy i did it. There's a lot there. I did get a beginning. The pandemic volunteered at it was before the pandemic didn't have a mask on your.

You split your money with the kid like down the middle so horrible and you give you give half your money to the kid and then you say anytime i buy you anything. You have to buy me something of this money. I guess it's just a waste. Because i want equal because so many parents grow up. And they're like oh man. I raised that kid. I spent so much money on the kid. They're not thankful this is a purely equitable trade of like. If i buy food you have to buy me like a chair that's equal.

I mean it's hard to hard concept because when you talk i don't think about. I don't think someone who had an affair is going to hell. But i'm saying i do think someone who's like a pedophile probably shouldn't be up in heaven. But what if they were in. It's weird like oh what are you doing here. He's a my point. It's what if it's not a reward like like have religions is heaven is a reward. Hell is a damnation. What if it was just like everyone's consciousness get sort of like uploaded in doing a the'real you know being and and just like it's it's it's a place that everyone just everyone who has ever been and will ever be just all share the movies hitler did you watch so yes. That is a great starting point for that conversation Flip on seoul hat. That was my sexual education from my parents so there is an after school special and my mother told me to watch it and then she left. The room was just explaining sex. And how this mine was and i'm sure i said this was in church when i was thirteen or something. The pastor said if your kid is twelve and you haven't had a sex talk with them. They already know about it and i went. You don't have any no or you. Like i could still use if you clarified i. I honestly still had no idea. I remember being thirteen. My friends saying the word bush and me going. And i could tell it was sexual and i was like i think he's trying to say that he's gonna go take the girl into the bushes and make our own dear. I mean i. We've talked about this dissect it a frog. Eleven days acting a frog. I should be able to know what sexy. If i don't wanna frog's pussy looks like when when the pastor said that was he being like kind of funny or was he being serious. I think he was trying to scare the parents to talk to their kids about sex at a younger age or something like that because by the time they were thirteen or whatever they were already corrupted and you needed to talk to them about sex in the context of marriage by like fucking. I wanna talk about it. I mean i also remember in church. How they they talked about iron maiden albums and how the mascot eddie was the corpse and how that will lead to heavy metal fans not wanting to have sex with corpses in and a rash of next year. It did sure. I mean we all thank god that period is over but it was of course. We're wild yes why old. What if your little girl grows up to be taller than you. Will you like that got. I have to look at her. That would be awful. I have wondered about that. She is already be sweet looking out at all. I mean i don't know if you're gonna be so she's looking at him like i'm little no. I'm not sure what i'm saying. How tall. he's six. Threes two six three. Yeah so i mean it could happen. I'm taller than my parents. I'm much taller than my mom. I'm like i was the my parents but that was not difficult to do right because they were too feta high. They were three apple. Like hello kitty what. That's how she is three apples. The smurfs Yeah i guess you gotta give it a queen. I smell a rat. she's five apples. Five apples and her weight is three apples. Five apples high and weigh three apple. She's got away at least five. Ns murph is no more than three apples tall. So yeah i want to know how many apple him so an ashes. A bunch of apples. How long but now it has and apple is seven centimeters. Select taller you paul.

Oh i'm just gonna take it as it goes and we'll talk about it five minutes before it happened theory. Take it as it goes mentality with the entire situation I mean i think like one thing that's interesting. Is that just within our relationship like when certain things come up. I feel like related to parenting. We might have different opinions. And then it's like. Oh that's going to be a thing when we have to figure out that thing or whatever but like it's nothing huge not like religion or something but like there was some of that out where it's like. Hey which church. And i'm assuming you're not going to church with. I wasn't going to start now. I think is the vibe like fifteen. Probably a great time like no people think that that some people think that kids need a baseline of that of like to know what it is. I think i don't so even though they're not religious they go like i'll take you to church or whatever hers. Yeah that's what were you. I mean i went to church enough times as a kid that i feel like i do have that like baseline understanding of what churches and wanna go or not. Christ yes no. But but i don't i we. We both don't go to church so it would be really like a stretch to be like now. I gotta find a church. So i can teach this hit about what churches so they can say. They don't wanna go later. But i am open to discussing religion in god and all that kind of stuff. I think that's great. I just like when your daughter is three and says what happens when we died. You say nothing our brains just turn on. I'd probably say go to have really. I tell you the real truth. I don't believe. I don't believe that your brain turns off and you just are nothing. Then why are we burying people if their brains are okay. Do i do think you don't function as a person even more. But i think you have a soul. There's an energy that animates us. That cannot be destroyed once we die. Just how many holographic or six pound sounds holographic like a hologram. That's what she meant that. I think i think i kind of think. Just everything shuts down but But who knows. Yeah i mean. I think i think for a kid. I understand that people will teach their kids all different things. So there's plenty of talk. Probably know who teach their kids got to. There's no afterlife and there's no nothing happens and you go in the ground but i also think it's like a really big concept for a little kid to accept and that's seems kind of it's like if even if you grow to believe that i just think it's a lot to say to a little kid that like if if they know someone who died that they're just gone right. I think it's it's i guess. I would like to read an article or something written by atheists parents who who raise their kids to to believe. There's nothing when they die and how that has worked out for them or whatever you know. Religion in general is kind of comforting to everyone of all ages shrew from six to sixty nine. Yes but i'm of the opinion that in the afterlife. you know..

MLB will use experimental rule changes in 2021 minor-league season
"So think if. Somebody's baseball ideas. Major league baseball spring training. Well do it now. Almost into it's not quite as third weekend but yeah what they're doing is major league. Baseball's got every level of minor league baseball trying out rules. New rule changes that if they go well they might consider implementing it the major league level. So it's basically test time. Experimental rule changes so. Let's go through a few of them. Yes all of it though. Just just to preface it. Steve the backstory hairstyle. Nice is they want more balls in play. Okay how can they. How can they get more ball. That that's what i read today right and it's also increase the pace of play. That's always something that every league is concerned with given they're trying to attract the youth and the youth probably has less attention span than any generation in history but Let's go through some of the minor league ball rule changes and a couple in particular that we wanna talk about. But we'll go through them. Triple a ball. Which is where the ottawa. Lynx us to play you can have larger bases. They'll be eighteen square inches instead of the usual fifteen and so that means your distance between basis is a little shorter three inches this just in and they're hoping to increase stolen bases with that aa ball. They're going to ban extreme defensive shifts. The deal is you have to have at least four defenders on the infield and they have to be all of them with two feet on the infield dirt enable inaba step off. Rule pitchers are going to be cold for a balk of they. Don't completely disengage from the rubber before throwing to a base and that's designed to increase stolen bases as well you've also got an ball pitchers limited to pick off attempts per plate appearance and if the pitcher tries for a third pick off and the runner is safe. He'll be charged with a bach. Because they we all agree that that thr- over the first base after a while it's pretty damn tedious but the two changes that will be happening in low able will be automatic strike zone systems previously used in the atlantic league in the fall league and the league is also set to use additional timers to increase the pace of play as well including between the delivery pitches and those two big. Those two things could be really big if they work in minor league ball and eventually end up in major league. Paul and those to me are the two biggest ones to me. That's like is a massive change. Stephen baseball if you have a consistent computerized strike zone be no. You know what i mean. No doubt about it. I watch games last year. Where you know even the announcers right you. You'll see a game where where the party out noise calling that low on. You know what he's calling it a strike he's calling it a strike that low on but then i saw them where it was. Just so willy. Nilly you know what this guy was calling and batters get it. You know you're just you're strikes on a little bit these calling the low on us highway one. But i've seen them where it's just knows what they're doing and its way out of the frame that they put up there now. That's a huge change. That'll make a big difference a bit. That'll nothing with the speed of play. But you know. I think it's the most significant thing ever. Yeah yeah. Baseball needs to keep evolving. All sports. Do though
Is Tesla the Tip of the Bitcoin Iceberg?
"Tesla announcing today bought one and a half a billion dollars. The crypto currency tested saying it made the purchase for the ability to further diversify at maximize returns on our cash. The news sending tesla shares higher by more than a percent in bitcoin to its highest level on record so tonight we start the show with a simple question. Why why should tesla go up on this news. Why should bitcoin go up by fourteen and a half percent on this news guy. When you say well you've seen it before. We saw with micro strategies. I mean that was i think. One hundred and seventy five dollar stock prior to the offering that they did michael sale. Obviously being the ceo there. I think the stock closed over a thousand dollars today. So you know the why answer is because that's what the markets geeked up for and that's the way the market's been trading. We've seen a number of different security so to a certain extent makes and as long as bitcoin does. This grind higher those stocks will probably go up exponentially exponentially but maybe to a magnify of a one and a half or so times but it works on the downside as well. I have no idea what bitcoin is gonna do. But if we do that. Back and forth at twenty thousand that micro strategies now thousand dollars. It's probably a six hundred dollar stock. And maybe you see similar in tesla. My biggest problem is not the fact that these companies are doing it. i think. Publicly traded companies with board approvals and shareholder approval should be do anything they want in the confines of the law. It's sort of this game if occasion. You know it's elon. Musk putting on his twitter account and a bitcoin emoji. Whatever the young and say. And i'm not trying to get off my lawn. Okay boomer stuff. But i think there's i think there's a danger associated with that. He's the ceo of one of the ten largest companies in the world. I think with that heavy as ahead wears a crown. And i think he's got to think more of those things it can't just be willy nilly in my opinion. I think that's an interesting point to make but yuan. Musk had demonstrated his propensity for bitcoin. Back in december so arguably. He was driving up the price of bitcoin as the company was buying. It's not exactly you know helping his own company in terms of establishing that one and a half billion dollar purchase in terms of participating to the upside it's more so participating to the downside karen. When i heard this news i i reached out to you. Because you pro- the accounting of this and it's very interesting. Test is not necessarily a bitcoin proxy for in terms of the way it's accounting for this bitcoin purchase. No it isn't in the accounting of it says that you have to market at the price you bought it unless trades down then the market at that price. But i don't think shareholders are gonna care about that. i think they just like the idea of it I don't know when he bought it. It's sort of fascinating to me. But i do think it's actually a big deal when we talked not that long ago about the idea of investors finally feeling like they can be comfortable having some exposure to cryptocurrencies to bitcoin. That was sort of a big move it. I and there's a lot to go in that. I think we were at the very beginning of that here. S and p five hundred companies with the cash on their balance sheets contemplating using some of that to buy bitcoin. He also mentioned potentially gold and gold. Etf's in the tesla released. But that's kind of amazing to me as well so we haven't even seen yet the institutional buying come through at all i don't know if every s and p five hundred. Cfo's going to want to do this. They've been pretty conservative for a pretty long time. Buying gold wouldn't have seen that crazy. And yet i don't think very many of them did it so i mean i'm long so i'm glad it's trading up it. I do think what could go wrong from here. I don't know maybe a tad frost
You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not
"We're talking about pandemics norman one of the phrases that was bandied about a lot especially at the beginning was the idea of herd immunity that we get to a stage where the virus con spread willy nilly through the community anymore because enough people have had it that it doesn't spread as rapidly anymore and the theoretical threshold for that based on how much a single person with covid sort of tends to spread to was about sixty seventy percent. So what do we know about places in the world where there has been a lot of cover transmission whether we're reaching this community threshold and it's actually making a difference. Well funny you should say that because a couple of days ago in the lancet published a report from brazil which is actually quite disturbing. So the reported from a city in brazil called monas- who are monogamous. Which is in the amazon northwest brazil. I think it is and they had done a study of blood. Donors indicated four seventy. Six percent of the population had been affected with sars cov to by october of last year. And therefore you would assume with fat pie attack rates. You've got herod immunity which is above sixty as you said between sixteen seventy percent except that happened in january in other words just this month between the first of january in january nineteenth compared to december first two thousand nine hundred they had three thousand four hundred thirty one hospital admissions for sars coffee to for covid nineteen compared to five hundred and fifty two in the first twenty days for three weeks of december right. So they've had a big spike last year. It's dropped off. And now the saying a big spike again now. This and hospitalizations had remained low for about seven months. And you've just seen this spike in january and The question is what's going on here. So you could have overestimated the attack rate and the haired immunity ratio so possible that it's a high estimate in terms of when people were immune but even their low estimates based on perhaps errors in their assumptions of Wayne people what antibody response. It's still about fifty two percent as their low estimate there and that should still can fair some degree of immunity. But they do say that when you compare. The blood donors to average population. There was no difference in the university seems to be quite a representative sample of the general community. So they assume but seventy six percent is accurate so then they go onto looking at whether or not. There's been a waning of antibodies. During that time that could be other response but they showed that you and british healthcare workers reinfection was rare up to about six months after the primary infection. It could be due to variance because we've talked a lot on kron cast by the variance in brazil and they've really got to three lineages of variants in brazil which could be both more virulent and indeed war contagious. So the worry here is that we don't really know why they've had a resurgence in a community that should be pretty immune and it's not that these people are getting a model infection the second time around either because the measure that they looking at his hospitalization so presumably people quite sick. Yes and there is growing evidence that some some of these variants are were virulence. Although that's that's not been confirmed in any pure view jr journal. In fact one thing i need to say. But this paper is that it's in the lancet. And therefore it has gone undergone some degree of peer review rather than some of the other pre publication papers. We sometimes court from. So what are we. Take away from this. It seems like a pretty scary fact is is heard immunity. A false goal. Do we know whether vaccination is going to have a long long lasting immunity associated with it like this kind of worrying. It is kind of wearing. The good news is that consistent evidence from immunization at least with the astro vaccine and the fis vaccine even though the astro vaccine may be less efficacious at preventing all disease is that they do seem to generate an immune response. That's bigger and deeper than you get from alive infection which is very unusual. 'cause usually live infections. Give you a better degree of immunity particularly with influenza. But it seems to be contradicted in this. So it's likely that vaccination gives you a better immune response that lasts longer. But you'd have to say that from the study you don't have to watch pretty closely whether or not immunity wayne's faster are your vulnerable to variants more than people have thoughts. I mean it's it's mystery could be wrong but it's a it's a real warning sign.
How to Secure Your Financial Future Starting Today
"I wanna thank you so much for doing. This is some happy to be here. I would imagine that before. You are able to build a plan for your money much like a plan for anything else in your life that you. I have to do an honest assessment of where you are. So what are the questions you need to be asking yourself to get started. One of the first things that we tell people to do is that you have to do a look back so you have to go and look back at your finances three months so take a look at where you've been spending look at where your money is going. Heart of having a better relationship with your money is being like okay. Do i really want to be spending six hundred dollars on. Do i want to be making target richer. It's really about prioritization of your cash rather than philly have to be on a diet right. it's about prioritization. Do you want to spend that money towards a home or a vacation or some kind of an asset versus just kind of spending it willy. Nilly on all kinds of things that you might not even remember the next month. Well let me say as someone who in general is not a big spender but has been guilty of exactly that sometimes the hopes and dreams seem so far flung right what it would take for me to get from here to owning a home feels like it has so far that it feels like there. A creature comforts. I can give myself between here and there. That are much more attainable. But as you were saying we'll put me behind in my ultimate which is one of the reasons you always should be assessing. I would say do it every six months. What is the next financial milestone that she wants to reaching your life. Whether that's i want to improve my credit score because it's not about new. Want to really improve your credit score. What are you really want is. Maybe it's a better house. You wanna qualify for a loan. You want a better credit card you want to refinance your student loans. It's not that one.

Klobuchar worried about data security for Amazon Halo
"Talk about iot device. Privacy's specifically the senate or rather. Amy klobuchar is really wondering after reading review of amazon's tracker what the department of health and human services plans to do to ensure privacy of people's health data so club. Hr read the amazon review. Said how it takes so much personal information like naked pictures of my body which it does you can delete them it's optional. You can delete the photos from the device. Those photos amazon gives you the option of sending them to the cloud so they don't automatically go there so that's all really important but kluber chart points out in the letter that seventy nine percent of health apps do share people's data and people may not be aware of that that was a study from the british medical journal in twenty nineteen. And so she's asking the department of health and human services for questions basically. She's saying. Hey are you paying attention to this. What are what actions do y'all take to safeguard users private health information. Do you have the authority at actually do any of this. And what else do we need to give the department of health and human services like what regulatory powers we need to give so they can strengthen privacy and security protections for this kind of data and she's asking for all of the information that h h has to make sure devices like halo aren't like willy nilly grabbing your data and share in it in ways like the might be uncomfortable were even detrimental to one's health and i say thank you.
The Google Photos Free-For-All Is Over
"So the free ride is over. Google has announced it will end its unlimited photos storage on june first of next year thereafter imposing a new fifteen gigabyte cap before they ask you to pay up for more storage but before you freak out photos and documents uploaded before that date june first of twenty twenty one will not count against the cap quoting the verge. All photos and documents uploaded before june. I will not count against that. Fifteen gigabyte cap. So you have plenty of time to decide whether to continue using google photos or switching to another cloud storage provider for your photos. Only photos uploaded after june. I will begin counting against the cap who already counts original quality photo uploads against a storage capping google photos however taking away unlimited backup for high quality photos and video which are automatically compressed for more efficient storage also takes away one of these services biggest selling points. It was the photo service where you just didn't have to worry about how much storage you had as a side note pixel owners will still be able to upload high quality not original photos for free after june first without those images counting against their cap. It's not as good as the pixels original deal of getting unlimited original quality. But it's a small bonus for the few people who buy google devices. Google points out that it offers more free storage than others you get fifteen gigabytes instead of the poultry five gigabytes that apple's icloud gives you and it also claims that eighty percent of google photos users won't hit that fifteen gigabyte cap for at least three years and quote by the way even though this photo thing is getting all the headlines. It's also worth noting that this is a sort of new storage policy for google across the board quoting manageable going forward. Google says that. If you don't check in on your google drive files every now and then. It may delete them. Google frames this change as a way to tidy up abandoned digital detritus. Perhaps leftover from long forgotten accounts. Which may be sure or alternatively it may be that a google user simply stored some valuable files away for a while like when might with physical documents and a fireproof safe and simply hasn't peaked at them in a few years quote. We're introducing new policies for consumer accounts. That are either inactive or over their storage across g mail. Drive including google docs sheets slides drawings forums and chambord files and or photos to better align with common practices across the industry. Explains google a blog post announcing the change your inactive in one or more of these services for two years twenty four months who will delete the content in the products in which you're inactive and quote in other words. School at present has no plans to. Just start deleting your stuff. Willy nilly however it's letting you know that. Come june. i twenty twenty one. The clock is ticking and quote but back to the free for all for photos ending. That's what's gotten everyone all riled up overnight which makes sense because this sort of touches all of our buttons when it comes to google right something. Something never rely on. Google services to be consistent forever or to even exist for more than half a decade. Google photos has been free for almost exactly five years by the way but also this strikes to the heart of the whole antitrust argument with which google and other big tech companies are being tarred quoting casey newton. Google earned eleven. Point two billion dollars in profits last quarter and uses all your uploaded photos to train its machine learning algorithms which offers it other enormous competitive benefits also seems notable that free. Google photo storage helped to drive tons of startups out of this market. Ever picks loom ever picture life. Now that they're gone. And google is tired of losing money on photos the revenue switch flips and quote and quoting from a widely read piece by willa ramos in one zero quote. It's a galling bayton switch and an object lesson anticompetitive behaviour by a big tech firm. The unlimited free storage offer was arguably. Google photos is top selling point one that few. If any competing providers could match the company was likely willing to lose money on its service in exchange for the photos value in training. It's ai systems and for the value of keeping users in its broader software ecosystem. What was once a hotly competitive and innovative space now largely controlled by google and a few other giants such as apple and this points to another set of losers albeit nebulous. One everyone who might have benefited from the new ideas and fresh features that were never developed because startups didn't stand a chance against google. It would be easy to reach for a sardonic. Don't be evil reference here. But what google is doing and why it matters isn't best understood in moral terms at every step it was just doing what successful companies do. It offered a great product for free because it could afford to it. Crushed competitors largely by virtue of being the best option on the market. And now it's raising prices because the free storage offer has served its purpose instead. This move is best understood from the standpoint of competition and antitrust it's google's vast size and scope the way it's products in different markets compliment and cross subsidize each other that gave it unmatchable advantages over smaller rivals. In retrospect the free storage offer looks a lot like predatory pricing whether that was google's intent or not but the bigger picture is that google like other dominant platforms. Has its hand in. So many different mutually reinforcing lines of business that it will always be incentivized to leverage them. In anti-competitive ways from certain standpoint the standpoint of maximizing profit and shareholder value. It would be foolish not to end quote. But i will give you this interesting counterpoint. From dare obasanjo who actually engage directly with will on twitter about his piece quote. This is why break. Big tech is sloganeering without a coherent policy. What break-up action would be recommended in. This instance should google photos be spun out of google. Meaning they'd have to charge for it from the jump or that. Google build new free products anymore. The article title is literally that this case is proof and antitrust remedy is needed. I'm simply asking how so google photos as a lost leader. These are common business practices. Mcdonald's profit comes from soda. Not burger's what antitrust regulation would be useful here. Lots of commentary on antitrust and big tech is really. I mad at this company and want them to be punished. There is no government intervention that will cause a for profit company to give you free unlimited storage forever and quote
The Empty House
"Certain houses, like certain person's managed somehow to Proclaim it once their character for evil in the case of the latter. No particular feature need betray them. They may boast and open countenance and ingenuous smile. Yes, a little of their company leaves the unalterable conviction that there is something radically a mess with there being that they are evil willy-nilly they seem to communicate in an atmosphere of secret and wicked thoughts which makes those in their immediate neighborhood shrink from them as from a thing has eased. and perhaps with houses the same Principle as operative and it is the aroma of evil Deeds committed under a particular roof long after the actual dose of passed away that makes the gooseflesh come and the hair rise something of the original Passion of the evildoer and of the horror of felt by his victim enters the heart of the innocent Watcher home and he becomes suddenly conscious of tingling nerves creeping skin and a chilling of the blood his terror-stricken without apparent cause There was manifestly nothing in the external appearance of this particular house to Bear out the tales of the horror that was said to rain within it was neither lonely nor unkempt stood crowded into a corner of the square and looked exactly like the houses on either side of it. It had same number of windows. It's neighbors the same balcony overlooking the gardens off the same white steps leading up to the heavy black front door. And in the rear there was the same narrow strip of green with neat box borders running up to the wall that divided it from the back of the adjoining houses. Apparently to the number of Chimney pots on the roof was the same the breadth and angle of the eaves and even the height of the dirty area railings month and yet in this house and the square seen precisely similar to its fifty ugly neighbors was as a matter of fact entirely different horribly different wearing latest marked invisible difference is impossible to say it cannot be ascribed holy to the imagination because persons who would spend some time in the house knowing nothing of the facts that declawed positively that certain rooms were so disagreeable. They would rather die than enter them again and that the atmosphere of the whole house produced in them symptoms of a genuine Terror while a series of innocent tenants who are trying to live in it and being forced to be camp at the shortest possible notice was indeed little less than a scandal in the town. One short has arrived to pay a weekend visit his aunt Julia and her little house on the seafront at the other end of the town. He found her charge to the brim with mystery and excitement. He had only received a telegram that morning and he had come anticipating boredom. But the moment he touched her hand and kissed at apple skin wrinkled cheek. He caught the first wave of electrical condition the impression deepened when he learned that there were to be no other visitors and that he had been telegraphed for with a very special object something with the wind and the something would doubtless bear fruit for this elderly spinster armed with a Mania for psychical research had brains as well as willpower and by hook or by crook. She usually managed to accomplish ends. The Revelation was made soon after T. When she cycled close up to him as they paced slowly along the seafront in the dusk. I've got the keys she announced in the deluge. To get half awesome voice got them till Monday the keys of the bathing machine or he asked innocently looking from the seat of the Town. Nothing brought her so quickly to the whole point is feigning stupidity. Neither. He whispered. I've got the keys of the haunted house in the square and I'm going there tonight shorthouse just conscious of the slightest possible Tremor down his back. He dropped his teasing tone something in her voice and manner thrilled him. She was in Earnest, but you can't go alone. He began that's why he lied for years. He said with decision. He turned to look at her the ugly lined enigmatic. Her face was the live with excitement. That was the glow of genuine enthusiasm rounded like a halo song is Shawn he caught another wave her excitement and the second Tremor more Market than the first accompanied it. Thanks, and Julie said politely thanks. Awfully. I shouldn't dad go quite alone. She went on raising her voice. But with you I should enjoy it immensely. You were afraid of nothing. I know God. Thanks so much. He said again is anything like this happen a great deal has happened. She whispered though. It's been most cleverly hushed up three tenants have come and gone in the last few months. And the house is set to be empty for good. Now in spite of himself short house became interested. His aren't was so very much in Earnest. The house is very old indeed to end off and the story and unpleasant one dates a long way back. It has to do with a murder committed by a journalist a woman who had some affair with a servant in the house one night. You managed to create himself in the cellar and when everyone was asleep, he crept upstairs to the servants quarters chased the girl down to the next Landing before anyone could come to the rescue through her birth. Any over the banisters into the hole below and the stableman the court I believe and hang for murder, but it all happened a century ago and have not been able to get more details of the story.

"nilly" Discussed on Maureen From Quarantine
"Let's go for this in the moment, try it because you're going to feel better. So I'm sharing this not Willy Nilly, but we're all going to feel better. So yeah, and so even if we're not in the mood and we're all human from time to time, we want to say you know what don't even look at above above where human so take a moment to pull back and go wait a minute. Okay Okay. Maybe there's Something going on and we feel someone doesn't deserve our compassion. You can take a moment and go do it for yourself. Takes a moment right now and say, all right. I can't do that just yet or I'm not in the mood galway. That's okay. Just say just not yet leave the door open and be open for the infinite possibilities because compassionate people, they don't simply just sit around and sing the blues about their own sorrows we. We know when it's painful, we allow ourselves tears we do. It's important and allow time to meditate and experience sorrow. But rather we can go out from there and we can better feel for others because leave suffered by. And as they say, teach us to laugh but don't ever let us forget that we cried and then again in other words, we can make lemons from lemonade and in fact I, I made some lemonade today with this beautiful fresh organic, Lemon. So make lots lemonade with these beautiful get yourself some organic lemon because that's also empowering watch what we eat and what we drink and do stay hydrated. There's a heat wave going on where I live and I want to remind us all again in the midst of quarantine and always drink your water stay hydrated. and. So any way that we don't want to stuck in pain is where I'm going with that let's take care of ourselves, and then we're we can better be there for our kids and all of mankind honest to goodness, and then we have released that pain through these tools and through being of service through the quarantine. That's the.
Police chief’s decision to quit may have just saved Seattle from itself
"Of their? Why did she resigned so abruptly? So chief Carmen best made history, becoming the first black female police chief in Seattle, and this was what the community wanted. She was someone who spent almost three decades as a police officer. Here. She was celebrated. But obviously there were calls to defund the police. The Seattle City Council decided tow lean into what the activists wanted. And they decided to adopt this policy of defunding by 50%. Now, they quickly realised they couldn't actually defund by 50% because we have AH, Union and you can't just cut all of that. Willy nilly. So they decided, however, to make some significant cuts that would have fired not just 100 police officers within the next few weeks, but also they've made the move. To slash her salary, but not just common best salary by by 40%. But they also cut the salary of all of her command staff. Now they ended up walking back some of the numbers, but she came back and she said, Look, Number one. This was personal. This felt vindictive, and I'm not going to allow that. This was disrespectful, but number two The irony in all of this over the last year and 1/2 we've been spending a lot of time and energy. In fact, the council gave $1.6 million to recruit new police officers of color and under the policy, we would have to fire those 100 officers are but newest hires. They're primarily officers of color. We tried to diversify this this police force and you're now telling us the fire all the black officers. We just hired I'm not going to do that. And she said, Yeah, I'm done. I'm stepping about and I think in it, I think she might have just saved the city of Seattle. We'll see where this ends up going. But she meant a lot to the city. And it truly embarrassed the council that up Until this point, it kind of felt like they were not capable of embarrassment. Right. But, you know, I really feel like she is a sincere woman, a sincere person. She loves that city and she didn't feel like she could keep it safe with the budget cuts and taking Was it a significant amount of money they're going to take from her paycheck. Yeah, they're so originally was going to be 100,000. I think the end result was like 40,000. It wasn't about the money and it wasn't about the protester. She flatly said. I will not fire the cops. I just worked my tail off to recruit. I'm not going to fire them and that she should be commended. That's what that is a heroic stand to take because she really highlighted the absurdity of this all. And when does her resignation take places it immediate Nina. It's September 2nd or third time She went 1/2 weeks. And do they have anybody on board or on in term? So they've got an interim. But the mayor said she's not going to even start the process of looking for a new police chief because she doesn't know number one what the job actually entails, because this council won't be clear as to what they want the job entail and number two, she flatly said. Who would want to take this job? Who would want to work here at the police chief, and she's 100% right? Yeah, she's on to something. There. She is a 1,000,000,000
Google's Nearby Share goes live
"I'm Jason. Howell. And I'm Ron Richards. And I'm a very flustered, Florence I on today's. Days in it. Street. They're not only in the android world, but just like in life. It has been a three time and honestly I do feel like after a couple of weeks of like slow Android News, all of a sudden, the past two days like I could not keep the plates spinning. I, was like Whoa and this and this. and. It's not because tomorrow. Me and James Nafta to get up early. Wait this way me and Jason have to get up early. It's going to be regular time for you. There's a Samsung, event. Yeah. It's GonNa be nuts like seven am and mind you like as I've said, many times at this point, he probably sick appearing me say my podcast studio station is in our bedroom. So it's basically like kicking failure, the roof before had so that I can make sure that I'm up at ready for seven. Am Call to follow Samsung News which there's going to be a lot. So I'm definitely looking forward to, but what a week from Samsung to Pixel, which we'll talk about later. This is a big. I mean. We've got so much phone news happening right now. It's kind of ridiculous. I mean, it's really weird after what has been a quiet summer like it is just like it went from zero to sixty late yesterday after job total. Good. which is Kinda normal riot. Usually, it seems like about the time of the the note event is win this next phase of the phone season kicks in, and then at this point, we don't hear from Google until like Tober, but this time that's different. Anyway, we're. We're spoiling the the the ending here or at least the middle. Before, we get there. We've got some news to talk about taking us to the news. please. We have a week purchased doesn't even violence? Say it. I don't blame them at all. I, don't blame me at all burke. Let's get into the news like we said it's been head-spinning these past couple of days. We'll get to the pixel stuff in the hardware blocks of stay tuned. We haven't forgotten about that but I off. One of the hotly anticipated things all summer in the world of android. In fact, a couple of weeks ago. When Dave Burke from android. From Google and Android was on the show, he teased that nearby share file sharing aspect of android would be rolling out soon, and soon is today how about that? So, basically, if you're familiar with IOS airdrop this airdrop for android. It's file share between ANDROID devices. You can share files, images, links, etc. Through fast transfer process. You can select your visibility determine who can see you and share with WHO and who can't It does work off line, which is fascinating. Transfers by either Bluetooth, Bluetooth L. E. Web RTC, or peer to peer Wifi, whichever is fast as and you can check out hands on android episode twenty, one for deep dive into the new feature, which I'm sure we'll get you as Jason goes deep into file sharing with nearby sharing. Jason. What is your experience in nearby sharing? Is it? What is it living up to the hype? I. Think, Yeah. I think in in my experience with it and try and I should I should stay that really I've only used it around the time when I was creating the hands on android episode. So I haven't found myself in a situation since then or like I needed to use nearby sharing to send a file to myself and I certainly haven't found myself in a situation where I'm sharing directly like with my wife like quite frankly we're not going anywhere. So we're just here. Why, don't you just send her files Willy Nilly because think about it. That can be fun. We have nothing going on right now, and you know your everyone's stuck at home and you know. Why not send her random files, sent her gifts in memes through the nearby share and. Response like I. think that's a good idea. I'll ask her to set it up because it would be weird if I just set it up and started dropping are things that suddenly appeared out of nowhere. It up and it'll be it'll be a nice way to kind of lighten the load on weeks such as this one but. was going to say about nearby sharing is in my time playing with it. For that episode hands on Android I tested transferring a good amount of files, large files, small files, and yet it works pretty seamlessly. Just kind have to do the work in advance of setting it up to say, Hey, I, trust this person's device, and then if you happen to have your device near near an that person's device at any given point, you can get a little notification. Notification. That says, Hey. So and so's nearby and it makes it really easy for you just tap and share directly to them because you've all you both already kind of open those gates to say, yes, this is possible.
Professor Mohammad Fadel Returns to Discuss the Current Political Climate
"BOCOM professor frontal a really happy to have you on I know you've been on the show in the past prior to when I joined when we had different co host, but I did over the weekend a that episode I think he was episode thirty, three, thirty, four from summer, two thousand sixteen, and I listened to it just to catch up and hear a little about Your your background and your points of view. Is a super interesting. kind of got me thinking of of all the craziness that that's happened. Since two thousand sixteen, right life has been crazy in general since maybe nine eleven you could say but We've kicked it into high gear since the trump election, and now of course everything that's going going on with the virus of macro level. But It's like I said it's been crazy year. And you explain the rise of trump through economics, and that really that really resonated with me. You were talking about how things have gotten global and whatnot, and because there's more supply and demand you talked about more more more supply of workers may be flat or left Earth's or lower demand of of of jobs in the capital, potentially for the for the lower class. things have only gotten worse right so. Do you see. Do you see that that pattern continuing and potentially leading to more and more extremism or are you? Are you hopeful? Well I mean. covid changed a lot of things. So I mean. So let me back up I. Guess Trump from the beginning. Began to charge reorient trade policies began posing lots of openly protectionist measures. And then Cova conflict celebrated that. And layer on top of that a certain kind of anti Chinese Stanton. That Kobe has reinforced. That was already pre existing. and. So now. Yeah was situation where there's a kind of broad consensus among the political class that something has to be done about China. Now it's not clear what that will mean. In terms of global trade, because the global trading system is highly dependent on Chinese purchase patient, but as you, you know just in the last few months atop has been ratcheting up the pressure on China Army Right now trae closing council it's. Posing greater greater sanctions on Chinese tech firms, etc, odds greater confrontations with China in the in the South China Sea among other things. and then coverted has caused a lot of people that make me. We need to bring back a lot of production of things back to the United States. Now I don't know how realistic that. Ambition is particularly if it's more than a few products that might be viewed as critical in the public health emergency. but the General Point that I made twenty sixteen I think about global economics remains the case today. That is of great benefit in the aggregate to the United States. Particularly United States but at the same time there are a lot of losers from globalization The trump response to bat has been to try to engage protectionism. In a in a certain sense kind of change, the terms of trade in a way that slanted the United States by imposing tariffs on trading partners now United States can get away without just an extent because the united. States has such a leading role in the global economy, no country. Wants to be excluded from the US market. So they are. Willing to go along, and there's very limited steps that they can take in the short term. To retaliate against the US, the problem is. Over the medium to long term. States wants to take that approach to global trade. It's likely that it's going to produce. Reactions, right! You might see a rise of different kind of trading bloc centered around China for example centered around Europe right in which other countries enter into our French trading relationships with each other. To protect themselves in the United States. You also see this going on with the role of the dollar. Nice, as has been very aggressive in using the role of the dollar as the world's reserve currency to impose sanctions, Willy Nilly, all over all over the world thereby effectively. Telling the rest of the world that if you want to trade with us, you can have to adopt our sanctions regimes. and so even places like the EU or trying to build out. Heyman systems that can bypass the dollar right so they can escape the kind of US stranglehold on the global, market! So our costs while twice as there are costs involved to trying to either export you use US economic our to impose its will in terms of geopolitics with the dollar or with Tariffs Charles. Trade. In order to protect US workers. There's a much easier route. which I would like to see A. Dog! And it's possible it could happen. If there's a large enough democratic featuring, remember namely we preserve the gains of the post. World War Two liberalize trading system, but combine it with a much higher level of taxation. That would allow the government to redistribute the gains from International Trade and compensate the losers. What we've had going on the United States since the Reagan Revolution is a double whammy to the working class in that. Global. Association has undermined security jobs on the one hand and I guess conservative. mark pro-market policies domestically destroyed the the welfare state internally. Right. And so. Yeah, you have cheap TV's. Education is unbelievably expensive. Helped expensive. Real estate is on XP. Unbelievably expensive right. So. The most fundamental goods are outside the reach of the average worker, even even professionals right. consumption goes are really cheap an audit it feels like the current administration is doing if you look at the two by two of of what you just laid out right like less less fairness, and Lester is redistribution, more fans, smartest redistribution, globalization versus nationalism that the current administration is going towards nationalism without fairness, and you want to go towards globalization, which is good for everybody in the long run plus Mauri, distribution and fairness. Strategy of trump and Publican party is to. Push back against globalization where the United States does not have apparently advantage by using tariffs. Right. And then imposing. Her fragile trading charms on its trading partners where it does. And then instead of we distribute Gel redistributionist policy to to. Income! WHAT THEY WANNA do is used tariffs to protect its France.
A Funny Byproduct Of Having To Buy Fewer Products
"About our fancy frame TV. Over the last couple of weeks on the PODCAST and I guess also on the blog. If you've seen our last couple blog post, we've been talking about how we've been pleasantly surprised that the furniture we moved down here for the most part fit very well and naturally into our new home. Yeah, it is kind of amazing to say. We showed a bunch of stuff in the. The pod I mean we did have measurements for rooms, and we did have an idea of what we're going to wear, so we weren't just like willy. Nilly putting a bunch of things in the pod, but we knew as we loaded the pod like there is going to be a margin for error I'm sure we'll get there and something won't work the way we thought it. It would because there's really nothing like being in a space and moving furniture around like you can try to do that in your head. When you're not in the space, it's really hard to land on the right. You Know Group of objects in the right. Lay Out I think anytime. We've moved houses. There's been this process where like some of your old furniture doesn't fit in. In the new house, for whatever reason like maybe it's because of the scale of the peace or the exact dimensions, or even a style, but you know you have these pieces that just don't land and work I think we expected that issue with at least some of the things that we brought down, but again we're grateful. Most everything has pretty much worked as it is. Is Yeah were even things John was like I. don't even know why we're bringing this. And then we brought it, and like played a very important role like remember. We talked about those bookcases that we're using in the kitchen and they have like so much storage. They're basically like extending our cabinets using as a pantry fought to leave those in richmond or sell them in Richmond. Richmond because I didn't think we had a place for them. And Sherry was right and the table in the kitchen. There's like a round white table that was like a game table in our old house in the bonus room and John was like I can't picture for people being able to eat here. I can't picture it fitting in the kitchen and it like probably won't live. Live there forever, but it is so good for now and if it hadn't made the POD, we'd be in trouble once again. Sherry was right so I think it's been nice because we didn't have this kind of like panic buying mode when we got here. We're like we don't have a kitchen table shot for one real quick and pretty much the only things that we have. Have had to buy at least the big furniture pieces we've had to buy have been things we knew we'd have to get because we didn't bring them with us. Like our beds like we had to get an outdoor dining table and other side note as we were packing the dining table with outdoor dining table in Richmond, and it was routed in the legs fell off. So we basically bought the same sized table. It was a different finish in a different color, and it works perfectly like I'm actually really glad that one did fall apart in Richmond. Has that one was like seven years old and disbar gone, and even informed the decision like that one was would, and it was rotten, so we got a metal and resin one. That will not, so you know some things were just dumb. Luck. Something's were strategy, but whatever it is that led us to where we are. We both kind of expected to land me like okay so now we need a rug dresser aside table six lamps five. Cheers. But you know what I'm saying I thought we'd land and have this list of like huge furniture items we needed, and it's like all we really needed. Where the things we knew we needed off the bat like beds. Yeah I, think that's the point here is that we've been grateful that we haven't had to go on like this sudden shopping spree and the other thing I wanted. Wanted to point out that was interesting. As we are shopping for one of the other items. We knew we'd have to get which has been window coverings, because as you have probably seen on instagram. We've been using packing blankets. It's very swanky at Casa Peter Sick. Let me tell you packing blankets. They disintegrate into like a black soot, and it's all over your window sills, it's. It's all over your floors, but we have started to receive some of the curtains that we bought, and it highlighted something interesting about downsizing and going to a smaller house that I think we consciously have known, but this particular purchase was like a good case study to help us quantify one of the benefits of living in a smaller space and furnishing a smaller space I think. Think things that are more obvious to everyone is like Oh to clean and less to pay to heat and cool like we said that over and over again. It's like less maintenance if I only have one bathroom I, worry less about maintaining four showers, enforcing them leaking and all that stuff, but I think this is one of those things where it's like when we say it. But it's just a thing we consciously knew, but then it was really interesting to see the actual numbers I. Actually don't know all the numbers. John is going to reveal them to me. Yeah, so I actually went back and tallied how many curtain panels and blinds we had to buy for our Richmond House, which as you probably heard? Her say is more than twice the size of the house. We are now living in Florida. So obviously had more windows to cover. Yeah, I can't wait to hear the numbers. John was like their staggering. I was staggered, so keep in mind. We didn't have curtains on every window so like not in the kitchens, bathrooms or anything like that and having a dining room, either yes, so this is not representative all the windows, so we had actually more blinds, and we had curtains, but we had twenty four curtain panels in Richmond. House K Twenty four, and I should point out. Out In recent months before we left, we were starting to like double up. Some of the curtain panels to make them look thicker right. Some have always been double in our living room. That was four panels instead of to on that big picture window in our office. We had a big picture window with four pounds instead of two. Did you just count those to? Double them because I couldn't remember what was doubled, so the twenty four number is probably closer to like thirty or thirty two. Yeah, that's what I would guess. We also have thirty blinds throughout. The houses were also. Roughly sixty two different window coverings. That Jack's yeah I mean. It was a lot I. Remember hanging those. It took us forever and I remember buying them, and it was so much money. I remember the blinds. We were like Oh. Do we need lines? Backpedal real quick and when we got home depot and saw the total. Yes, so again thirty ish curtain panels thirty blinds. Are you ready for the Florida numbers? I can't wait in Florida instead of thirty. We only need eight curtain panels, eight curtain panels versus thirty well, there's the saving instead of thirty blinds. We need five blinds. Five lines is my favorite and. And we're being very specific about these lines, guys. No one has researched blinds more than us. We will share what we pick when it arrives and we're sure we like it I. Don't want to jinx it. Hence all the packing blankets because we're taking our time and I also just for fun also looked at the number of curtain panels in blinds that. That we had to buy for the Beach House and the duplex. That's going to be like a million. A million I mean feel like we're. It's going to be close because it was three kids nine bathrooms like it was six seven, eight nine hundred ten bedrooms like it's a lot of juices well, and it was also fifty two curtain panels O and And Forty two blinds, no regrets right. We're glad we had curtains and blinds, but it sure is nice. When what did you say it's eight and five here in Florida compared to when we tally all of those previous homes that we sold eighty two curtain panels and seventy two blinds is so insane. Yes, and we ironed in hand

When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far
"Going Vegan Veggie. You simply eating more veggies can all be healthy lifestyle choices but if doing so gives you. Zayed he about hanging out with friends makes you fear certain foods. It can actually be quite dangerous because yes being to healthy can actually be unhealthy for some restrictive. Eating is a short live stage that ricochets into a junk food rebellion for others. They find their way back to the middle of the road. But for some money the so called healthy way of eating can become a true obsession and at its most extreme. An eating disorder known as author. Xia this week's food for thought explores when healthy becomes unhealthy with Dr Nikki Stump Surgeon TV presenter and author of pretty unhealthy. Helen Nikki. Hi Thank you for having me. Really Nice debate here per exciting. I am beyond excited. I think since receiving your book getting to read it in being completely inspired and upset fully instagram Graham Wall. And just seeing what you've been getting up to you it's a pleasure to have you in the. Uk's at thank he owner thank you. I think we'll start with whether someone who's we'll go right him. Web someone's been diagnosed with an each use solder or slightly lesser degree. All serve preoccupation of being unhealthy. One is that unhealthy the occupation of being too healthy. Yeah I think that's a really good question because I think you've kind of alluded to it. Then you in in that question that use. You're walking a fine line. It's it's It's very easy to step from one thing to something that is is not so great for you. So you know. It's reasonable to be conscious and observant. About what you ate and making sure that you're exercising not smoking and drinking and all those kinds of things that's important but then when you get really caught up in it to a point where it is impacting your mental health. Your physical health. Your social well-being forget about that. A Lot. That's why. I think we start to get into territory where you are you looking at something. That's possibly not that good for you. You'll completely right the so many factors involved. I think for anyone to just identify acknowledging themselves. I'm not quite happy right. Now is quite a big step because often people in this country. We still have a thing as what at the moment weight is often seen as such a defining health. I don't know what your thoughts are. Matt Yeah I think white is is not going anywhere as as something that people Reach full particularly In an instant to to make a judgment about their own health or somebody else's health but it's really just not that simple econ deny that in some situations in some circumstances. Some people yes. Your weight is a factor in that can be at either end as well But I think that to look at someone and say Oh look at yourself and say I'm unhealthy because of I figure on the Sky Oh That's not rise. It doesn't really have have the support that we think it does. Yeah I think so. We use Via Mind it. It's so tricky because I got a lot of clients coming in clinic saying all the doctors told me. I'm just above the BMI. Actually have any health problems yeah so I mean BMI. I think is rightly criticised and analyze. And I think that if you're applying it to an individual it's a tool that has very little use if you're applying it to screen someone so looking for problem if you're applying it to perhaps population level or re as a research tool that has validity. But you know I think one of the things that people don't always understand about science and research and medicine and so on and so forth is that you know our tools always in perfect and one of the things that makes perfect is the way that we use them. So if we use be my willy nilly then yeah it's not. It wasn't designed for If we use it to look at an individual in front of us and decide if they're healthy that's wrong but if you're using it for the things that's been designed for it has some Information giving capability. And that's where we need to be using it I completely agree. It's just a wider understanding because things can be taken so literally all the time. Want to believe in one number having the solution or absolutely everything without simple you can be over way to be very fit. Yeah absolutely I you know. One of the things that is important in your health is not necessarily that defined. Yes Oh no I'm I'm above or below a number It's actually what you do and we know in particularly for women that no mash. They're they're they're white so their their body composition that if they live a healthy lifestyles in they take all the boxes for nutrition darn smart etcetera that they have a very significant health benefit. So I I'm I've really moved away from from that kind of thinking that you know. We have to get you to a low beam. I will take into account solely secretly with my patients. I'm very focused on what they're doing. Now I'm just trying to get them to to be. Active for example is is just one simple thing that's so refreshing into comfortable adult as well because this is something that unfortunately we see such a lot of this country because medics in this country. Don't get enough nutritional education. Yeah lifestyle education and to hear you say that is wonderful. Yeah even with that in mind. I'm just one piece of the puzzle. You know so if I identify that someone Is is needing some help. With what eat or exercise you reach for your for your experts. Now I'm sure like like the NHL. We're pretty eater stretched with results. So you know. It's not always easy to do that. And I. I think that doctors should be able to give out the basics just like You know my allied health colleagues give out the basics of what I do as well you know. We all work in this together by. I think it is time to to sort of change up our thinking and the way we give advice across the board. Yeah completely. I think is often a misconception. As well that it's all about overeating Ashley. You can be overweight and be quite malnourished as well. Connie that for me. I don't think people realize no and I think the way to to look at this is to Magin if you are overweight and you your diet consists less assay solely of takeout food so that that's all you rating by doing that by eating that very Calorie dense food You are unfortunately missing out on a lot of nutrients So for example you know are based on our. That's a word that is very loaded by mere medically speaking someone who paps has a extra white in the medical complications of it they can be still lacking in in Macronutrients. They can still be lacking micronutrients. you know so. It's not that straightforward to say to say that all that they're very well nourished nor that actually might not be exactly. You can be both ends of the spectrum I said and be completely malnourished. Do you see this getting worse and Western society off. I mean that's sort of what the data suggests you know so if you look at you know. Uk Australia us now. We're all fairly on power. We have pretty similar Spectrum of issues I think health issues and outside of the sphere of food and weight and so on and so forth with pretty similar and I. I do think that that it is the all of these things are increasing And then not just about US eating too much You know all of these choices that we might happen in a system. That is designed to make eight to macho exercise too little. I mean near tobacco. Advertising is literally designed to get. You know it's you know we're not we're not failing ourselves we are filed by system at lodge.
"nilly" Discussed on BiggerPockets Money Podcast
"That money is no longer consideration. Edition, Yes, I like that addition to so.

How The Fed Fights Coronavirus
"The Federal Reserve the Fed Country Central Bank has been insanely busy trying to support the economy in the past month. But might not know that because the Fed hasn't really been in the headlines. The Way Congress has been so tan show. We're going to fill in the details. What the Fed has been up to here? We go so during normal times if the economy is growing too fast and there's too much inflation meaning prices are rising too fast. The Fed can raise interest rates to slow the economy down a bit and if the economy is really weak like right now the Fed can lower interest rates and give the economy a boost but the FED has already lowered interest rates to almost zero. So that means it. The Fed really just cannot do any more to help the economy right. It's ammunition. Yeah there's no more ammunition and I am certain. Stacey that Fed Chair Jerome Powell would agree with me when it comes to this lending. We're not going to run out of ammunition that doesn't happen okay never mind. That doesn't happen like bullets forever. That was that was chair Powell about a month ago on. Cbs Today Show and what he meant. Was that no matter how bad the economy suffers as it deals with krona virus the Fed can always increase. How much money. It is lending to the economy to support it. That money cannot be given away. It has to be in the form of lending but there is no limit on how much lending the. Fed can provide an in the time since that interview with chair pops only a month ago but since then the economy has been collapsing and the Fed has responded by setting up nine new lending programs these facilities to get money to different parts of the economy in partnership with the US Treasury Department and this has been a much bigger much faster response from the Fed then during the financial crisis of two thousand eight. It happened fast that happened in volume and it happened in partnership with the Treasury. It was pretty smooth much smoother than the last go around. This is torres a reporter at Bloomberg News who recently analyzed all this extraordinary new activity from the Fed and Craig's. You can think of the Fed's actions all of these lending programs as falling into three different buckets. Three buckets the reflect the three roles that the Fed is now playing in the economy. And I up. The Fed is now acting as the economy's lender of last resort this all that is actually familiar to central banks in crisis so simple way to understand lender of last resort is to imagine. You know there's like one bank in a small town. The bank has loaned money to businesses in the town but the economy is going bad so those companies might not be able to pay back that bank. Well the people in town here about it so they all rush at the same time to take their money out of the bank runs on the bank. Yeah but the bank does not have all their money precisely because it loaned some of that money out to the businesses which we're GONNA pay back later on in the future. The money's in your house in your house and yours so the panic gets worse because everyone wants to get their money out of the bank before it runs out until Craig says the central bank the Federal Reserve would show up. And just say. I'm going to loan loan loan to this bank as much money as they need until the panic stops nowadays things are obviously more complicated but this basic role of the. Fed as lender of last resort is pretty much the same. It's just that you know this little town bank has partly been replaced by different kinds of markets if for example instead of depositing your cash in the bank you can buy a short term. I owe you from a bank or from another kind of financial company where the company basically says. Hey let us borrow your money and we'll pay you back in a month and we'll pay you back with a little more interesting. You would have gotten from just bank deposit well about a month ago. Companies started having trouble selling these people did not want to buy them probably because they were worried that as the economy was tanking these companies would struggle to pay them back now. This is a problem because some companies rely on selling those I o us to pay for their daily operations including to pay people salaries. Yep So what the Fed did was it. Set up a facility to buy these. I owe us directly from the companies. These Iowa used by the way are just called commercial paper and this lending program from the Fed is a facility. Craig says that is providing emergency cash when there's something wrong with a market that won't give these companies short-term finance and once people saw that the Fed was actively buying this commercial paper these I owe us from companies. They stopped being nervous about buying it themselves. So companies were again able to sell their US and pay everybody salaries. Yeah I mean this is important. Also because some of these financial companies that sell the I. R. Themselves Providing Credit to people to get mortgages and car loans and these companies can continue doing that now. The Fed has at other similar facilities as lender of last resort and in all of them. The Fed is making sure that financial institutions can borrow in the short term so that they can lend money out to the economy in the long term with the Fed has done is to restore confidence in these markets. Yeah this partly explains by the way. Why the Fed is not in the headlines as much when it is doing its job. Successfully markets calmed down which just doesn't attract as much attention but it means that the Fed is doing its job yet. No news is good news right. Yeah that is one role. The Fed is playing lender of last resort. The second role Craig gives it a similar name investor of last resort but Craig says there are big actually really radical differences in these roles so in investor of last resort. There are two programs they are set up to buy longer term debt sold by big corporations and the fate is not restricting itself to just supporting the debt of the safest companies. It's also supporting the debt of some risky companies. Like ones that sell junk bonds for a guy who's been covering this institution for going on two decades. I have never seen anything like this. As investor of last resort the Fed is going beyond supporting short term lending markets to avoid panics. It is directly financing the longer term. Borrowing of corporations and this is pretty controversial. Partly because a lot of companies borrowed a ton of money in recent years and so the Fed might be kind of inadvertently signalling to these companies. That they can just keep borrowing money into the future like Willy Nilly because if the chips are down the Fed will help them out. If the economy goes bad they really have changed perceptions about risk mainly an told the markets that in moments of excessive economic
The Plumbing Curse Continues
"You know how few episodes ago we said our plumbing curses continuing to Florida. We all agree that John. Kirsten I'm just like brought along for the ride but the price is is not the problem. We didn't agree to that but I bring it up again. Because the continuing water curse continues. It's the gift that keeps on giving you. This is still talking about the Florida House and I think we mentioned we already knew. There was some water damage in the house. Like the floorboards were buckled and stuff. And we also knew that. Some of the DRYWALL had gotten wet at some point so we were planning to replace some of the in the house but like we had gone through the process of actually having like a mold inspection house to make sure there wasn't any like mold lurking anywhere. Yeah because my house is that way. You just wonder what's festering and what you can't see so he spent six hundred fifty dollars to get a mold expert to tell us if there were like spores and he was like from the test all know if like it's bad in the bedroom it's bad and the kids rooms and I was like six hundred fifty dollars well-spent for the peace of mind because we can't see behind these walls and we'll get to know what's behind these walls. Well well. The test came back that it was fine but we got to see behind the walls anyways because when they were replacing some trimming some areas that we knew were wet and like sort of patching some dry while we knew there was some drywall. That had to come out. They basically kept pulling drywall out as long as they thought they needed to. Like if it was wet or brittle or damaged they pulled it out and apparently they just kept pulling because it kept being damaged brittle gross. Drywall and eventually the contractor. Just said you know what I think. We need to replace the entire first floor worth of DRYWALL. Because everything they were touching was of questionable integrity. Yeah it was a mess and so what happened was the entire first floor including ceilings was ripped out the good news because you know always looking for the silver lining is that it's saved us because we discovered of all things a leak behind the bathroom wall another water issue and we never would have seen it. If we remove the DRYWALL. What would have happened is we would have moved in would have lived there for a while. The Wall would have gotten moist in weird. Really Moist is the word you wanted to go for damp. It would've gotten disturbing some way and then we would have discovered what was going on. But that's the only working bathroom in this house like we are moving into this house with just one bathroom that we're all GONNA share and my mind can only imagine what it would be like to move in and then have that one bathroom compromised in a big way as much as it's frustrating to have to. Redo more of the drywall than we thought. We went into this house knowing fixer upper. And I'm trying to just look at the bright side and not blame the Scorpio in this relationship to know who you have to blame is apparently the person who attached some kind of like shed storage unit to the side of the house like on the exterior because according to our contractor. The Guy drove screws to the wall and one went right into a pipe in the bathroom. Yeah I think it might have been nailed like nail gun and do it. Whatever it was. It was Willy Nilly Willy Nilly so glad we discovered that the other good news is that we do have a second floor on the house most of the rooms around the first floor. Just one big loft on the second floor with like a really beautiful deck and that is just fine so I'm trying to look at that silver lining that. It's not like all the drywall on. The entire house has to be redone. Just about you know the two thirds of it. That's on the first floor. Just about eighty-five percent. Well I could put another positive spin on it. Which is a reminder that when you are renovating and decorating and fixing up a smaller space is less expensive than doing a bigger space. Like if we had to re. Drywall eighty five percent of our house. Here in our house in Richmond. That'd be much more expensive than drywall. On eighty five percent of that smaller house in Florida. Yes I am grateful for that. I'm also grateful. There is like a limited amount of places that can leak on us. We are adding a bathroom but that will be all new pipes. By contrast the duplex had six bathrooms. Two kitchens who laundry rooms like. It's almost a miracle that all these houses weren't just like waterlogged to do. The luck of a certain husband chose and love anyway even though he brings a curse into our

Market Like Crazy with Adam Kipnes
"We are at the final step of the extent financial planning process and that is to market like crazy. We always need to be marketing. We always need to be thinking about market thinking about marketing. We need to understand what marketing is. And that does not mean and I'm serious about this. That does not mean finding the best social media avenue that does not mean finding the new hot thing that you heard about this does not mean just scattershot trying to do everything out there. In order to market it means using these five steps that came before in your marketing. So what I mean by that is in the create. Your story episode. We talked about who your client is. Why do they hire you? Why do you do what you do? What keeps your prospect your client up at night if you know what those are. Your marketing becomes a whole lot easier. Because you know if they are on social media you know that what you're gonNA say resonates because you're talking to the right person about the right thing at the right time. You'RE GONNA utilize your strengths right. We talked about. What are you good at? If you're not good at social media marketing and I'm not particularly good at social media marketing so I don't do it for myself right. I utilize other forms. I'm face to face guy I'm a speaker. I'm a podcast her. I'm a trainer. I'm an educator. I used those in my marketing. Those are my strengths. Then we want a supplementary weaknesses right. I'm not good at social media so I hire somebody. I outsource that I partner with people in order for them to allies it. I utilize my podcast so other people can share our stories together. Our conversations are interviews with their audiences so I- supplement my own weaknesses. I tailor my expectations. I don't have a goal that by marketing is GonNa work. I have to expect it to cause candidly a lot of business owners that I work with and I've been doing this for twenty years. Ten years working directly one on one with clients helping to grow their business and a lot of them do marketing and flat out. They'll admit to themselves in admit to me they don't think it's GonNa work and you know what it doesn't work right because they don't expect it to because they didn't do the steps before and then we again want to optimize the environment in our marketing. WanNa put ourselves in the best position to succeed. We don't WanNa do it? Sort of Willy. Nilly you're half ass. We want to think about it. We want to be strategic about it. We WanNA use all of these steps in our marketing so marketing is not just about the scattershot approach. Marketing is not about spending more money. Marketing is not about being pushy. And telling people what you have to offer. Marketing is understanding all the pieces of this process understanding who you are understanding who you serve and letting them know the reasons that you've got the best product or service that's available so again you. WanNa create your story you WanNa utilize and understand your weaknesses. You want your strengths. You want to supplement your weaknesses. You want to tailor your expectations to make sure they happen. You WanNa put yourself in the best position for success through optimizing your environment and you WanNa always be marketing using the prior five steps as part of it now. I know this marketing section. You may have been hoping that it was gonna be the secret bullet or the the silver bullet. There is only one silver bullet and that is talking to more people but we have put ourselves in position to meet more people and to see more people so we can talk to more people so think about all the stamps in the strategic planning process. Not only to build your business but to build your marketing plan if you do this and it doesn't take your time a time. It doesn't take a ton of money. It just takes a little bit of focus and knowing the steps that you can. Do you have more success in twenty twenty in your business if you
"nilly" Discussed on KDWN 720AM
"The great associate Justice Clarence Thomas has complained about this. He's complaining about it. Because it's it's not wholly unique. But the spread of it is wholly unique. You know, every now, and then a judge would do that. And it was frowned upon. Now, they do it willy nilly because Trump is the president. Because Trump is the president. We don't have a threat in this country from an outsized Trump presidency. Muscling its way through separation of powers. There's no evidence of that whatsoever. He's not trying to expand the power of the presidency. He's trying to legitimately use the powers. He's not legislating from the Oval Office. Despite the phony originalists who say he would be if he triggers the national emergencies act. He's trying to follow the rules. But these judges are disaster. A disaster. This is from our buddies at right scoop. And now the injunction on Trump's ObamaCare rule is nationwide. You already know that the other day, a judge in California. Blocked. A Trump rule that allowed employers with religious or moral objections to opt out of Obamacare's contraception coverage that affected thirteen states. So a judge. Countermanded the president of the United States, the head of the executive branch who's overseeing ObamaCare, and the infinite regulations involved in one of the things the president did is he said, you know, this regulation that was put in place by the Obama administration. I'm yanking it in a federal judge a district court judge of Pennsylvania said, oh, no. You're not. I don't agree with you. A Pennsylvania.
